False fire alarms could mean large fees
* A NEW CITY ORDINANCE IS SET TO
TAKE EFFECT OCT. 1.
By STEPHEN MAGRUDER
UF's classrooms, residence halls and stu-
dent union have received final inspections to
ensure their fire alarms are in top working or-
der before the city of Gainesville begins charg-
ing the university for false alarms Oct. 1.
Gainesville's False Fire Alarm Ordinance
will fine all residents and business owners
inside city limits who cause multiple false fire
alarms. The ordinance is modeled after a simi-
lar law regarding burglar alarms in 2000.
A false fire alarm occurs when the fire
department responds and later determines no
real emergency existed.
"Our hope is just to reduce the amount of

false fire alarms in the city," said Gainesville
Fire Rescue spokeswoman Shawna Traub.
She said there are risks involved with
false-alarm responses involving speeding fire
engines moving through city traffic.
"We respond as if it was a real fire," she
said. "It puts everybody on the road at risk,
and it also takes us out of service."
GFR reports an average of 1,430 false fire
alarms per year, costing the city $370,000.
From 2001 to 2004, UF was the site of 860
false alarms, or 15 percent of Gainesville's total.

Tenants file lawsuits
for UCorners parking
By JESSICA RIFFEL
There will be no free parking
in the new University Corners if
developers get their way.
Three tenants are disputing
the $180-million project because
parking fees may inhibit business.
The Brick Oven Pizza and Pasta
Company has filed a lawsuit.
"I think that most college
students wouldn't pay to park,"
owner Ryan McGuinfiess said.
There is free parking now
for customers of Gator Plaza,
the development at University
Avenue and 13th Street, but the
proposed change is prompting
tenant Maui Teriyaki to file a
lawsuit as well.
"This is only going to be for
the rich," owner Steve Marzke
said. "People in Gainesville will
not pay to park. This is a fiasco.
This is not South Beach."
He does not plan to be a part
of "the new University Corners
because of the charge for park-
ing, as well as the higher rent.
' "We intended to be there until
2022 and beyond, but we don't
want to be in the new shopping
center," Marzke said;
The new University Corners is
planned to be a three-block com-
mercial and residential complex,
and developers said they hope
to attract more unique stores and

tive officer of University Corners

"That would all be worked
out between the owner and the

However, Marzke 'said the

UF opens new office to better, further Gator Nation
By CASSIDY MILLS
Alligator Contributing Writer
UF has moved sustainability up on the priority list all the
way up to Tigert Hall.
In hopes of meeting the needs of today's UFCommunity
and preserving resources for the next generation, UF has an-
nounced it will open an Office of Sustainability in the universi-
ty's chief administrative building.
"The Office of Sustainability symbolizes the importance of
sustainability to UF and especially to the students," Faculty
Senate Chairwoman Kim Tanzer said.
Tanzer said the office, which the Faculty Senate initiated,
should help coordinate the sustainability work
On that is already going on at UF and help prepare
CampuS for more work in the future.
The office will not officially open until
November, when an executive director is hired, but some
sustainability efforts are already underway. They include ev-
erything from advocating for living wages to the design of new
The living-wage program was announced in 2000 for entry-
level employees. The current starting salary is $8.67 per hour.
"It is important that we don't just pay people minimum
wage. We need to provide them with enough money to live,"
said Les Thiele, a professor of political science and chair of the
Committee on Sustainability at UF.
He called the office "a good idea whose time has come."
Some results of increased sustainability practices on campus
will be more recycling, a reduction of waste, greater efficiency
of energy in buildings, greater interest in community service

With his Southern drawl and

His jobs have taken him on a

and he'll tell.
Luanne ulerz/ Hillgauor
Pulitzer-winning journalist Rick Bragg autographs his book at
the College of Journalism and Communications on Monday..
Starting at a small weekly
newspaper in Alabama, Bragg
honed his skills and became the
premier feature writer for The
New York Times.
He has written stories about
the Oklahoma City bombing,
the race riots in Miami, the Elian
Gonzalez crisis and the 2000 elec-
He even offered to "kiss a
camel on the mouth" to write
from the Middle East when he
worked for the St. Petersburg
Times. Luckily, he said, it didn't
have to come to that.
Bragg didn't just give the
facts about events he covered;
he focused on the people the
facts affected. He has so many
memorable news-feature stories
that he filled a book with them
- "Somebody Told Me."
"I've been mad, hurt, so sick
to my stomach in all my years
of doing this," he said. "But I've
never been bored."
Bragg warned young writers
about the hardships he encoun-
tered while being a journalist,
and how starting out as a writer
can be like being on the "tail end
of a dragon."
It's a job requiring more than
determination youth is also a
necessity, he said.
Bragg made national head-
lines in May 2003 when he re-
signed from The New York Times
after using a stringer to assist him
on a story without giving credit.
He denied fault in the situ-
ation, saying it was a common
practice at the paper at the time.
While he no longer has a
full-time feature-writing job, he
writes occasional opinion pieces
for various national publica-
Master lecturer Mike Foley,
who was an editor at the St.
Petersburg Times when he hired
Bragg as a reporter, introduced
Bragg to many UF classes.
Bragg now works as a profes-
sor of writing at the University
of Alabama. He said he plans to
write at least two more books.

at Lexington Crossing apartments

Gainesville Police discovered that
some of them were robbers.
"If you don't know people, don't

spokesman Sgt. Keith Kameg.
"If you want to buy a magazine,
call the company."
Kameg advised residents to secure
any sliding glass doors, as those are
the easiest targets for robbers.
With the several occupied-home
burglaries of the past few weeks in
two other apartment complexes, GPD
is investigating whether both inci-
dents are related.

Joe Goldberg makes
The topic of today's editorial is close to home.
However, with Student Government elections com-
ing up, we feel it must be addressed.
At Tuesday's Student Senate meeting, Student Body
President Joe Goldberg issued an executive order prohibiting
all SG agencies from advertising in the Alligator.
We know we may not be able to step back from this enough
to judge it in the right context. But we are the main newspaper
covering the university, and we're going to take a shot at it.
A section of the student body is upset. Somehow, that has
snowballed into SG deciding to remove itself from the entire
This move could be much more disastrous for UF students
than for the Alligator. We'll take the bullet, but students
shouldn't be hit in an all-encompassing drive-by.
Goldberg's haste has punished the uninvolved. To find out
what their tuition is buying, students will be forced to search
online and around campus for SG events, rather than open up
a readily available newspaper.
We're not sure anyone will put in the effort.
And does this mean SG agencies will'also be told not to
speak to Alligator reporters about upcoming events?
If so, we're sorry that the Alligator's news stories will lack
the views and information from the SG officials who organize
these student-funded activities.
But don't get us wrong. We'd rather they cut their adver-
tisements and talk to reporters than not talk at all.
It irks us even more that Goldberg, the lead student who
makes decisions on our behalf, has decided to break student
statutes to make his point.
He wants to take away all SG advertisements from the
Alligator, but the statutes state that certain notices be placed
in "the newspaper with the greatest circulation among
University of Florida students."
Goldberg's assertion that the UF Wednesday Update and
the SG Web site can fill this role is simply incorrect.
If SG wanted to make this move, its statutes should have
been changed. That way, Goldberg would not have broken SG
rules, and officials would have had more time to think about
making this big decision.
Furthermore, senators would have had a say. We can't tell
how many were for this move and how many were against
it. Goldberg announced his decision; he didn't ask for sena-
tors' input. When statutes are changed, however, the Student
Senate has to vote.
We don't know if Goldberg knew he was breaking rules,
but this isn't the first time he has shown a disregard for the'
laws that uphold Student Government. When he was sen-
ate president last Fall, Goldberg made several questionable
At one Senate meeting, he allowed a second meeting to
convene directly afterward despite a Florida statute that states
"reasonable notice" should be given for all such open, public
At another session, several senators accused Goldberg
of manipulating Senate procedure in an effort to stop a cer-
tain candidate from being voted in as president for Student
This is not the leadership UF students need and deserve.
Goldberg should be carefully considering what best suits the
student body. He should not be making hasty decisions.
Goldberg's attempt to make a point has revealed his ques-

Outsiders cannot use 'nickname'
This letter is not to condone the use of the
word or to trivialize this issue. I am trying to
explain how some people might feel.
In June 1995, Michael Jackson released his
HIStory two-disc set. In one song he used the
term "kike." He explained he was trying to
promote multiculturalism and that he wasn't
a racist. No one bought that explanation, and
Michael Jackson went back to the studio and
recorded a more acceptable version of the
song. This is similar to what happened to this
The terms that we consider derogatory that
people of various groups use with each other
are like nicknames. The nickname that your
family gives you might be one that is contro-

love you when they use it.
Outsiders are not as compassionate be-
cause of your nickname's connotations.
Therefore, only family gets to use your

problems but a bitch ain't one."
As I looked around the fitness center
at the women and men there, I felt embar-

I am confused as to why no one seems
to mind that at this UF facility women are
blatantly referred to as "bitches" and dearly
degraded while Andy Marlette's cartoon is
causing such an uproar when it made no value

I don't doubt that both race and socioeco-
nomic status played an either direct or indirect
role in the evacuation procedure of Hurricane
Katrina or that there is rampant racism in gov-
ernment and society at large. I also don't think
anyone can infer from Marlette's cartoon that
he would disagree.

the Alligator because of perceived racism, I
think it should also take away funding from
the Student Recreation and Fitness Center be-
cause of the obvious sexism it allowed.
Meyer has shown superiority to Zook
Andrew Meyer needs to re-watch a tape of
the Gators' first three games this season before
passing his judgment on our football team.
I agree that we have been quick to anoint
Coach Urban Meyer as the savior of Florida
football (I remember thinking, "Hey, this Zook
guy's pretty good" after his first win against
UT.) But Andrew Meyer needs to examine the
reasons behind the Gator Nation's views.
This was the first off-season in recent
memory that passed without incident, due to
the discipline instilled by Coach Meyer. The
players as also playing with this discipline
and with a heart and desire that was lacking in
three seasons under Zook.
True, Coach Meyer did call a conserva-
tive game, but I'm sure it wasn't his choice..
Tennessee's defense is talented enough to
force you to change your game plan. I'm sure
Coach Meyer wishes he could have been more
aggressive, but UT's defense wasn't allowing
enough time for these types of plays to de-
velop. Coach Meyer took what was given to
him and won with it.
If Zook was still coach, I guarantee we
wouldn't have walked away from that game
with a victory.
As for Josh Portis starting over Leak, I think
Mr. Meyer may have lost his mind.
Portis deserves to start based off what 20
plays? National championship-contending
teams don't have 17-year-old -quarterbacks
starting for them. Period. Do me a favor and
re-watch the Tennessee game. On almost
every play, Chris Leak was running for his
life, yet he stepped up and made the plays he
needed to time and time again.
He played almost flawlessly considering
the appalling lack of blocking and constant
pressure he had to face. Leak is one of the
most talented players in the country and has
the potential to be a legitimate Heisman can-
didate. Unfortunately, like most quarterbacks,
he needs time to be able to make plays.
Portis will be a great QB at UF in the future,
but this is Leak's team, and I have faith that
he will put up more big numbers this season
and next. Ask college coaches and I'd bet 99
percent of them will take the three-year start-
ing, conference passing yard-leading, 17 con-
secutive pass-completing junior quarterback

Cost of false fire calls may alarm students
ALAR MS, from page 1
Each building with a registered fire
alarm is allowed one false-alarm call
After that, fees start at $25 for false
alarm No. 2 and could go as high as
$400 for false alarm No. 9 and above.
UF will keep a record of any future
false alarms to understand potential
causes, such as electrical malfunctions,
heat, cooking smoke, or accidental or
intentional manual activation.
However William Properzio, UF
environmental health and safety di-
rector, said no campus alarm system
renovations were necessary.
"All our fire alarms are inspected
by the state fire marshal, and they all
meet code," he said.
In the last three months, UF has
stepped up its quality control of moni-
toring each alarm.
"We have re-emphasized and en-
hanced what we're doing," he added.
Buildings with the highest number
of false fire alarms on campus during
the past five years were residence halls
and fraternity and sorority houses.
Factors playing into the high num-
ber of false alarms include continuous
occupancy, frequent cooking and pos-
sible alarm activation by residents.
Residents now are required to
register their fire alarm with the city
at a cost of $15 and are encouraged to
check with their alarm company if they
ever have a false alarm.
Project cannot start until disputes are settled
UCORNERS, from page 1
"Parking is critical," Marzke said. "Without parking
there, it will kill a business."
The lease prohibits University Comers from demolish-
ing the Gator Plaza, as the developer plans, he said.
"They are only allowed to build above and around
us," Marzke said. "They can't demolish the building.
They say they can, so it'll be up to a judge to decide."
Michael Conroy, project manager of University
Comers, said they would like to start the project at the
beginning of 2006, but it depends on the three disputing
tenants, financial issues and negotiations with the city.
The project cannot start until the disputes are settled,
whether in or out of court.
"I remain hopeful that things will work out and it will
be a win-win situation for both parties involved," Conroy
Brick Oven is waiting to set a court date, and Maui
Teriyaki anticipates filing a lawsuit.
"For now, we're going to try to fight it in court and
keep our business open," Marzke said. "We'll do every-
thing in our right to make sure the lease is enforced."
The owner of Gator Cuts, the third business in dispute,
refused to comment. -
New building designs
meet higher standards
SUSTAINABILITY, from page 1
and more courses in sustainability, Thiele said.
UF is also designing buildings that meet standards
for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.
Current buildings on campus with the LEED design
include additions to the Florida Museum of Natural
History and the Levin College of Law. Rinker Hall was
also built with this design.
LEED standards will be used more in the future,
said Bahar Armaghani, project manager and quality
assurance coordinator in the facilities, planning and
construction division at UF.
"As of right now we have adopted LEED to do all
of our major building renovations and construction,"
Armaghani said. On average, buildings made to be
sustainable are 37-percent more efficient than those that
Rinker Hall cost an initial 7 percent more during
construction because it was built to be sustainable, but
that initial cost will be made up in 10 years, he said.
The facilities, planning and construction division has
an estimated $365 million in current projects.

Grads' financial aid
up for consideration
* THE GRADUATE STUDENT
COUNCIL WILL TALK TONIGHT.
By STEPHEN MAGRUDER
Graduate students who receive
financial aid are encouraged to
come to tonight's Graduate Student
Council meeting to discuss their ex-
periences and offer suggestions for
improving the aid system.
The meeting is scheduled for
6:30 p.m. in Room C1-9 of the
Communicore building off Center
Drive, behind Shands at UE.
A liaison from the UF financial
aid office is expected to attend and
speak on the aid process.
Graduate student Lindsey
Collins said she and many of her
graduate friends have dealt with
a variety of complications when it
comes to receiving their money.
"I really do think graduate stu-
dents are in a different situation,"
One reason might be that gradu-
ate students must complete a waiver
to show how much aid they need,
whereas undergraduates do not.
"There seems to be lots of dis-
organization in the financial aid
process," Collins said.
"Sometimes it is the student's
fault, but I've noticed that a lot of
times it isn't."
Graduate students typically are
older than undergraduates, and
many occupy roles as teachers, re-
searchers and spouses in addition
to their roles as students.
"Graduate students who take
out loans depend on financial aid
- and timely disbursement as
much as undergraduates do, and
perhaps more so since they tend
to be less dependent on parents,
and sometimes have dependent
UF of their
Administration own," she
talked to many graduate students
who have horror stories about
financial aid disbursements com-
ing weeks and months late, re-
sulting in late rent, car and utility
payments," Collins said. "Some
have said-that they have told pro-
spective graduate students that
UF is unreliable when it comes to
financial aid, and that if they need
aid to get by, UF might not be the
best place for them."
Financial aid officials were not
contacted Wednesday because at
the time of the story the office was

Filmmakers need funds ff
ue Andres learned the diffi-
culties of Hollywood life the
hard way. Now all she wants
to do is give other people a start.
Andres started Student Upstart
Films in January, a student orga-
nization dedicated to all things
concerning the silver screen, from
production to print. The idea was
to get students interested in the
various aspects of filmmaking to
work together on their projects.
In mid-March, Andres made
Upstart's first request through
the Student Senate Allocations
Committee, asking for micro-
phones, lighting kits, a camera and
other basic film equipment.
While the $6,000 request
seemed reasonable to Andres,
Allocations Chairman Jason Lutin
Andres said Lutin informed
the group that Allocations did not
have the precedent to fund Upstart
for equipment. Instead, Lutin
suggested they borrow necessary
equipment from the university's
However, the department has
barely enough equipment for its
own students, much less some
new student group, Andres said.
"Allocations doesn't under-
stand we don't have access to
equipment," Andres said, "pe-
After a few compromises,
Upstart approached the Student
Senate with a bill requesting a por-
table hard drive for editing pur-
poses and money to make copies.
Although a few senators spoke in
favor of funding the organization,
the bill was passed as-is, without
the extra funds, April 19.
While it may seem odd that
an organization with some Senate
support doesn't receive more
funding, the decision is not an easy
one to make.
SG Treasurer Lindsay Cosimi
said it is difficult to determine how
much each organization should
receive, while remaining fair to
the others, especially in the case of
"Many new organizations
are what we call 'narrow-focus
groups,'" Cosimi said.
Narrow-focus groups are orga-
nizations that appear promising at
first, but drop in membership over
time, Cosimi explained. Once the
founder of the organization leaves,
the group fizzles.
"We look for growth in an orga-
nization," Cosimi said. "We look
for growth in membership, pro-
gramming, planned speakers."
Cosimi said the best example of
a rags-to-riches student organiza-
tion was the National Organization
for the Reform of Marijuana Laws.
Although NORML began as a
small organization with little
funding, in about a year it became
one of the largest student organi-.
zations on campus.

If this its the example Up-tart
needs to follow, Andres said she
feels they are already on their way.
"We already have 200 people
on our listserv," Andres said. "So
many people at UF are interested
in film, from all different [majors].
We have members from liberal arts
and aerospace engineering."

As with any new organization,
only time will tell whether or not
Upstart will survive. However,
Andres is confident Upstart offers
enough appeal to students to keep
the club going.
"Video production is connected
to so many fields," Andres said.
"Knowing how to convey ideas on
film is a very beneficial skill."

Some bands will give you a phone interview
from their drunken post-show party. The Mid
Life Crisis Band gives you one from their

Mark Chirico and Greg Smith, both lead guitar-
ists and vocalists, say the reason for the name of
their band is simple: It's completely true.
"We're definitely a mid life crisis band," said
Chirico in a phone interview amid cheering at a
local ballpark in Union, N.J.
"All of us are, I guess, in our 40s except for one
of us that just crossed the great divide (into 50),"
said Smith, in a separate interview.

although going to the same place,

and upstairs cabana bar called Moonshine.

Orlando and Tampa areas that drive
all that way just to see the locals."
Two venues not falling into
that category are The Atlantic,
which has hosted several ESS
shows, and The Side Bar, soon to
be home to a monthly electronic
music showcase beginning Sept.
28. But Miller's plans stretch
beyond increasing the volume of
events SubSouth has lined up for
the next few months.
"UP has had an electro-acoustic
music scene for over a decade, and
I'd like to figure out a way to partner
with that. There is also the possibil-
ity of an electro-
night at a newer
ue," he said'-
music has a few
barriers to over-
come before it can really take off in
Gainesville. Dave LeBleu of Textual,
another local electronic act, said he
believes electronic musicians need
to put on more of a show to pull in a
"There needs to be more of an
.actual visual or live experience as
opposed to just a few people sit-
ting behind their
Matt Clear said. SubSouth
Playlist is also looking
email@example.com for musicians to
have "more of
based element to
their live shows."
For this to happen, and for
new electronic acts to flourish in
Gainesville, a strong support system
needs to be in place. With SubSouth,
these factors have now come togeth-
er and the scene can only continue
"It's the ultimate networking
tool for musicians and fans," said
Perhaps the next big thing to
come out of Gainesville will eschew
guitars and drums for a laptop and
a synthesizer. If that's the case, it
could happen because of SubSouth
and the dedicated community
of musicians and fans they have
helped bring together.

Earplugs preserve quality
By MARIA LAVERGHETTA
I If you've ever used the cheap, yellow foam
earplugs, you're well aware that sound chang-
es in the process.
Although earplugs protect your ears from
the damage caused by loud speakers at a bar,
they distort the quality of music, said John
Wiseheart, a local audiologist.
Research shows that custom-made musi-
cian earplugs can help the listener or musician
hear the quality of the music better without
damaging their ear, Wiseheart said.
The musician earplugs can either be custom
made for your ear, which cost about $150, or
can be non-custom for $15 to $20.
"Sixty percent of the inductees into the Rock
and Roll Hall of Fame have hearing impair-
ment," Wiseheart said.
Normal conversation uses about 60 decibels
of sound, but the level of the ear's resources
that are used increases exponentially by every
added decibel, Wiseheart.
If you are at a rock concert, which is about
112 decibels on average, you could listen for
an hour and 25 minutes with the musician
ear plugs instead of only listening for five
minutes without causing muffled hear-
ing, ringing in your ears, or with repeated
exposure, permanent hearing loss, accord-
ing to the Etymotic Research, Inc. Web site,
Because the older earplugs protect against
higher-frequency sounds, the music is not
heard as well, Wiseheart said.
"It's like someone just turning the volume
down," he said. "The older, yellow earplugs
are great if you want maximum attenuation
or protection but not if you want to enjoy the
Rashon Medlock, a local singer and gradu-
ate of the UF School of Music, said he sees this.
"In Gainesville, pretty much everybody,
plays as loud as they can anyway," he said.
"The quality of earplug would really only mat-
ter if you were a serious concert patron."
However, other local musicians who play
in the brass section feel as though this is an
Dakeyan "Dre" Graham, a music education
major at UF and saxophone player in the UF
Jazz Ensemble, said the older earplugs are not
helpful when he uses them during his perfor-
"They block out the sound," he said. "They
don't allow you to tune as well as you could
because you can't use all the resources of your
Erik Augereau, a trombonist at UF, doesn't
use earplugs but understands why other play-
ers use them.
"I sit in the back, so I never use earplugs,"
he said. "There are even orchestras which-
have Plexiglass shields between the brass and
strings to protect them."
Due to the benefits of the musician ear
plugs, musicians of all kinds, including march-
ing bands and sound crews, are encouraged to
wear them. Any protection is better than none
at all though, Wiseheart said.
"People don't appreciate how easy it is to
lose your hearing," he said.
Pool keeps fun cheap
S plit between four friends,
a mere $1.63 will cover an
hour of hearty billiards fun at
Silver-Q Billiards and Sports Bar.
You don't have to pay to the door and
there's usually no line. That's a great
way to start any night.
Sure, the initial onslaught of smoke
is a little overwhelming, but it's a
pool hall. Even if no

Possibilities are limitless,
even for the fickle pool player.
The bar offers fast and friendly ser-
vice. Just don't put your cup on the

Even if pool isn't your thing, you can

watch something sports-related on TV.

Minus the Bear
Menos el Oso
WThe Seattle quintet is noto-
rious for its comedy song
titles, but just because this album doesn't
boast anything quite as ridiculous as
"Thanks for the Killer Game of Crisco
Twister" doesn't mean they've decided
to drastically change their sound. "Menos
el Oso" follows the same blueprint that
made 2002's "Highly Refined Pirates"
a success jerky, post-punk rhythms
melded to electronic flourishes and seri-
ous lyrics which belie the silly song titles.
It's a formula which is particularly suc-
cessful on more upbeat, danceable tracks
like "The Fix" and "Pachuca Sunrise,"
although there is sadly nothing to match
"Highly Refined Pirates."
However, Minus the Bear's problem
has always been making its songs catchy
enough to stick in listeners' heads, and
"Menos el Oso" is no different the
unexpected time changes and the uncon-
ventional vocals of Jake Snider give the
record a certain initial level of inaccessibil-
ity. If given enough time to grow on you,
these elements can become the album's
"Menos el Oso" is a solid record. MTB
fans will love it, but newcomers might
want to try the slightly superior "Highly
Refined Pirates" first.
The Invisible Invasion
l Being from Liverpool can
be something of a handicap
for a band; it means that reviewers almost
invariably find some way to mention The
B--s. Luckily for the Coral, it bears no
That doesn't mean the band doesn't
look to the past for inspiration. A good
portion of the album's harmonies and gui-
tar licks are reminiscent of '60s surf pop,
often providing us with the album's best
moments propulsive opening track
"She Sings the Mourning" in particular.
But the Coral isn't just a one-trick
pony. Lead single "In the Morning," quite
rightly a hit in the band's native UK, is the
very essence of chilled-out summery pop
"The Operator" features a fantastic mock-
spooky keyboard line, and on "So Long
Ago" and "Late Afternoon," the guitar
melodies and softer vocal style (although
not the vocals themselves) recall some of
Belle &Sebastian's more upbeat numbers.
It's debatable whether this album with
its strong tendency toward the retro, will
have a lasting impact. But before the '60s
plundering begins to wear a little thin,
it undoubtedly will provide great enjoy-
ment for those looking to keep the spirit of

McDonald injury thrusts Cohen into starting role
By IAN FISHER
Alligator Staff Writer
For defensive end Joe Cohen, a
year made a huge difference.
Last year, he started 12 games at
end before taking a backseat to Ray
Now with McDonald out four to
six weeks with a partially torn ACL,
Cohen is back starting at end.
"Me, personally, I don't
think I should have been
starting last year."

Starting every game last season,
Cohen failed to record a single sack.
He's the first to admit that he was
"Me, personally, I don't think I
should have been starting last year,"
Cohen said. "I still had a ways to
go at D-end. I still was way off on
my technique. I just needed more
Cohen, a fullback before switch-
ing to defense, hadn't played on
the defensive line since ninth or
10th grade. No wonder he lacked
"He was a running back," fel-
low defensive end Jeremy Mincey
said. "That's the running back state
of mind: 'I want to get the ball and
"He used to pass rush like he was
running the ball sometimes."
Cohen is finally getting the de-
fensive mindset, Mincey said.
Although Cohen only has one
tackle this season, Coach Urban
Meyer graded him one of four de-
fensive champions after his perfor-
mance against Louisiana Tech, even
before McDonald was injured.
"He's a guy that didn't practice
real well around here for a while,"
Meyer said. "Even before Ray's
injury, he was making a big push
about three or four weeks ago."
With McDonald gone, that push
is going to have to be harder.
Cohen will start at end with
redshirt freshman Derrick Harvey
backing him up until McDonald can
But Cohen doesn't see it as a
chance to prove himself; he'd rather
have McDonald playing.
"I try not to look at it that way,"
he said. "I wish Ray was out there
with us. But so far this year I've been
trying to establish myself in second

Portis, Thornton may see playing time against Kentucky
* POOR BALL PROTECTION HAS
KEPT RESERVES ON BENCH.
By BRYAN APP and
Alligator Staff Writers
After earning a nod to start the season
opener against Wyoming, tailback Skyler
Thornton has apparently fallen out of Coach
Urban Meyer's good graces due to ball-han-
Thornton didn't play a down against
Tennessee but could see a limited role against
Kentucky on Saturday.
"He dropped the ball as well," Meyer
said. "He and Markus [Manson] had a little
ball-security issue. Skyler's getting a little
better. He had a very good week. We might
see a little more Skyler this week."
Quarterback Josh Portis also didn't play
against Tennessee due to Meyer's lack of
confidence in the freshman's ball-handling
"Are you kidding me?" said Meyer regard-
ing whether Portis' ball-handling contributed
to his lack of playing time in the 16-7 UF win
against the Volunteers.
"You lose that game if we turn the ball
But Portis seems to be improving in
practices and should play in Lexington on
Saturday, Meyer said.
"There's a plan [to play Portis]," Meyer,
said. "He's doing a little bit of a better job this
week. We have a plan, and I think you guys
know what it is to take care of the football
and get in the game."
LOW OUTPUT: While UF's defense continues
to receive praise, Meyer's offense has re-
ceived a bit of criticism.
UF's offense considered one of the best
in the nation heading into the season is cur-

Gators must return to special teams glory; give Dee a chance
It certainly didn't happen in 2004. Tack on a big negative
in that stat category for 2003. 2002? Fat chance, and if you
see a trend developing you might as well just skip 2001.
"Come on," you must be saying, "what stat category do the
Gators have a big goose egg in dating back till 2000?"
The last time UF had a punt return or kick return for a
touchdown was when Lito Sheppard took a pair of punts to
pay dirt back when Steve Spurrier was the 01' Ball Coach five
One of Zooker's many, many problems was the special
teams play. How many games were there that a special teams'
touchdown could have ignited the Gators? Not only would
it have re-energized a team in disar-
ray, but imagine how a game changing
play can put a 10,000-watt charge into
a sideline, coaching staff, stadium and
fan base. Just one play in four of the
Gators' five losses could have been the

However, the question begs to be answered: why have
Florida's special teams tanked harder than a ludicrous
Alligator editorialist's Tuesday column stating that "Chris
Leak is a bad player?"
It can't be the athletes. With a talent-rich state waiting to
be plundered by Coach Urban Meyer's recruiting, there's no
reason for a capable, play-making athlete not to be in the back
throwing down the jukes NCAA Football 2006 style. Miami
has Devin Hester and Florida State has flashy freshman Fred
Rouse, but Meyer's returned so far has been flat.

0-line struggles to adapt
* AFTER GIVING UP FIVE SACKS TO
TENNESSEE, UF'S OFFENSIVE LINE IS
TRYING TO REGROUP.
By FARZAD SAFI
Alligator Staff Writer
While most of Gainesville celebrated UF's
win against Tennessee last weekend, two
Gators could hardly enjoy themselves.
"'Seniors Mike Degory and Randy Hand
went straight home Saturday night, because
they were too angry to party.
The Tennessee defensive line sacked quar-
terback Chris Leak five times, stuffed the
Gators on a 4th-and-inches play and domi-
nated UF's offensive line for most of the night.
"Mike and I were disgusted after the
Tennessee game," Hand said. "We were mad
because beating them was one of the biggest
wins of our career and we played poorly."
But was the Gators' offensive line that bad,
or was Tennessee's defensive line that good?
"Tennessee had amazing talent on the de-
fensive line," Coach Urban Meyer said. "They
had three seniors, and all three of those guys
are going to be making a bunch of money play-
ing in the NFL next year."
Regardless, Degory believes that the offen-
sive line did not show up to play.
"Up front, that was one of the worst games
I've ever been associated with," he said.
How could a unit led by four experienced
seniors be one of the last to adapt to the new
Meyer and the players have different ex-
planations for the latest dilemma with the
"I don't think it was a lack of courage or a
lack of talent with the offensive line," Meyer
said. "I think it's a lack of technique."
"We've spent so much time focusing on
scheme," he said. "Right now, we need to fo-
cus on the fundamentals. Those guys need to
work on their base footwork and hand place-
ment, because they looked awful on film."
Meyer has changed how the offensive line
has been practicing this. week. Tight ends
coach Steve Addazio has been assigned to
work specifically with the tackles.
Sophomore tight end Tate Casey may also
see his role change in the offense until the play
of the line improves.
"I'm happy spending most of my time on
the field blocking," Casey said. "A tight end
makes his living off of blocking. Whatever
catches he makes are just bonuses."
While Meyer believes the problem is due
to a lack of fundamentals, one of the starters
thinks it's the new system.
"It's a new offense for us too," Hand said.
"The tackles have a lot more responsibility this
year because we have to make more reads.
Last year, we only had to go one way and
As long as the offensive line continues to
struggle, the entire offense will suffer.
Following a 247-yard performance against
Tennessee, the Gators rank seventh in the
Southeastern Conference and 60th in the na-
tion in total offense.
Meyer admitted that he has had to limit a
lot of his play calling due to the line's errors.
Conveniently, the offensive line has an ex-
cellent opportunity to boost its self-esteem this
week against injury-riddled Kentucky.
The Wildcats have the worst rushing de-
fense in the SEC, allowing 223.7 yards per
"I'd be all for running the ball 50 times this
week against Kentucky to get the bugs Out the
system," Hand said. "We need to get at least
150 yards rushing to be satisfied though."

Mincey has noticed that too.
"I feel good about Derrick
Harvey and Joe Cohen," he said.
"Harvey's young, but the more he
plays, the more snaps he gets, the
better he can get."
Mincey said he's confident about
Cohen, and their position coach
"I'm not worried at all about Joe
Cohen," defensive line coach Greg
Mattison said. "Joe Cohen since day
one has been a starter for us. He's
been a starter. He's like everyone
Mincey credited Mattison with
helping Cohen catch on and im-
proving his technique.
But that's not even the biggest
change in Cohen this year.
What is the main difference since
Cohen's sub-par 2004 campaign?
"I think it's his hunger for the
game," Mincey said. "Last year, he
didn't like defense as much.
"Now he's taking pride in what
he's doing, and it's making him a
How much better?

Gators' offense 'not very pretty'
FOOTBALL, from page 23
rently ranked just seventh in the SEC.
.On Wednesday, Meyer said the
criticism is warranted.
"They should be critical, [the of-
fense is] not very pretty," Meyer said.
"What you can't be critical about is
field position and ball security. [But]
we're here to score points."
Some Heisman watch lists continue
to rank quarterback Chris Leak in the
top five several as high as No. 3
- but there are critics who believe
Leak simply isn't suited for Meyer's
"I think it's a combination [of peo-
ple not stepping up]," Meyer said.:
"It's not [just] Chris Leak. It's a
group of 11 people doing the jobs, and
right now they're not; it's a breakdown
here and there."
O-LINE WOES: After allowing five
sacks against Tennessee, the Gators'
offensive line could experience more
problems with an injury to offensive
guard Tavares Washington.
Coach Urban Meyer said
Washington is suffering from a sore
elbow after possibly hyper-extending
it against the Volunteers.
Freshman Jim Tartt, who has played
only as a reserve in one game this sea-
son while recovering from a shoulder
injury is receiving more practice reps
at guard, Meyer said.
Lb I LsAN, from page 23
Senior corner 'back Vernell Brown has
played beyond lights out and Meyer calling
him "The face of Florida Football" speaks
volumes of how far the Gainesville native
has come. While Meyer praised him during
fall and spring practice, I didn't buy into it.
I was busy sipping the Reggie Nelson Kool-
Aid, and yes, he has proven to be the Real
Deal Holyfield, I thought Nelson would be
starting by LSU. Brown's play speaks for it-
self-his 18 tackles leads the Gators and he
also has an interception, but his job at punt
returned has been nauseating at best. UF is
dead last in the Southeastern Conference in
punt returns and 101st in the nation, and
Brown's 13 returns for 57 yards, a 4.4-yard
average, is not what Meyer could have pos-
The proposed solution is simple. For
those that were lucky enough to see his
recruiting film back in the day, Dee Webb
could only be described as a game breaker
while returning punts at Jacksonville's Ed
White High. Already one of the fastest
guys on the team, Webb showcased and
harnessed that speed in the spring when he
competed with the track team on top of his
rigorous football and academic schedule.
All I am saying is, give Dee-a chance.

kicking tapes of their own.
"We've grown. together,"
Hetland said. "I mean, I didn't

I just kicked the soccer ball, and
then I would kind of go up there

Gators to enter lull in schedule

Rhian Davis and the Gators must carry momentum into SEC

Complacency is a word that
always makes coaches cringe, and
Mary Wise is no exception.
While the Gators' exited their
non-conference schedule with a 9-1
mark, including a victory against ri-
val Southern California, Wise wants
her players to continue progress-
ing the way they have through the
season's first month. "-
"As a coach you're always look-
ing to the future and what more
they can learn," Wise said. "'Every
time they learn something we want
to give them something else, so they
may never feel like they can ever ac-
complish everything. Because every
time they get something we're go-
ing to add something to it."
UF is now entering a stretch of its
season that could hardly be consid-
Currently ranked No. 6 in the na-
tion, the Gators aren't scheduled to
play another team in the Top 25 for
the remainder of the season.
Perhaps UF's toughest remain-

The Volunteers defeated the
