ONE NATION UNDER. GATOR.
doubles Fall '04
By DAVID COHEN and JUSTIN RICHARDS
The Gator Party built more foundation for its
nation Tuesday and Wednesday, winning most
seats by a wide margin in this Fall's Student
Gator won 40 of the 46 open Student Senate
i .seats, while rival Impact Party claimed five.
There was a tie for a District D seat between
A r-.Impact's Amanda Kane and Gator's John M.
The ominous total of 6,666 students voted in
UF's first Intranet SG election, nearly doubling
the Fall 2004 election tally of 3,727.
Gator District B Senator-elect Mike Patrone
"found out today he will have a third term.
"This is what college is for me," he said.
Gator not only won the battle of seats, it cap-
III. tured nearly two-thirds of the total vote, counting
multiple votes in districts with several open seats.
: "Obviously, our campaign really connected
with people on the ground on-campus, person-to-
person," Gator spokesman Thomas Philpot said.
Impact President Thomas Jardon said he was
optimistic about his party's future despite Gator
winning about 87 percent of the seats.
"I think we put up a better fight than anyone
expected," he said. "I think this puts us in a good
position to run a viable candidate in Spring."

Campaigners file several complaints Election Results
By JUSTIN RICHARDS
His rejection of two Impact Party cam-
paign posters raised questions about the
breadth of the Student Government supervi-
sor of elections' powers.
One poster featured a quote from
Student Senate Budget and Appropriations
Committee Chairwoman Jackie Pace that
read, "In the past we kind of tended to give
away money" and cited an Aug. 31 Alligator
article that quoted Pace.
Impact officials said they verified the quote
with a tape recording of the Senate meeting at
which Pace, a Gator Party senator, spoke.
The poster comprises only Pace's quote,
"There's definitely a distinction
between dirty campaigning and
truthful campaigning. The func-
tion of elections is to hold elected
Impact Party president
the phrase, "Vote Impact," and the words re-
quired on campaign material By SG statutes.
"I felt that it was a direct attack on Ms. Pace,"
Supervisor of Elections Daniel Maland said.
Though this power is not specified in
the election codes, Maland said he can deny
the use of offensive campaign material. He
deemed offensive material to be anything that
"has the potential to put the general student
body in a state of discomfort."
Impact Party President Thomas Jardon
said Maland's act was a violation of the
party's right to free speech.
"There's definitely a distinction between
dirty campaigning and truthful campaign-
ing," Jardon said. "The function of elections is
to hold elected officials accountable."
Maland also rejected a poster that read,
"Vote naked," advocating a vote-from-home
Internet voting system.
Impact spokesman Adam Roberts said the
party plans to file an official elections com-
plaint about-the posters' rejections.

* JESSICA IS ONE OF ONLY
SIX ACROSS THE COUNTRY.
By JENNIFER FREIHOFER
Jessica is one of more than 7,000
freshmen who started at UF this
Fall, but she's the only one to star in
a new reality show.
Nineteen-year-old Jessica, whose
last name is not being released for
privacy reasons, is one of six first-
year college students from across
the United States chosen to be fea-
tured in America Online's "Project
Freshman," an online reality show
that documents the students as they
adjust to their new college lives.
The students were given digital
video cameras to film their experi-
ences in personal, real-life settings.
"Basically, our job is to film our-
selves in our most candid moments,'
Jessica said. "All of that is put togeth-
er on the teen section of AOL so that
people of our age group and younger
can vaguely get an idea of what it's
like on a real student's first day when
they go to college."
Jessica, a telecommunications
major from Doylestown, Pa., was
contacted by UF in June about the
She said she thinks UF recom-
mended her because she is from
out-of-state, applied early decision
and was highly involved in the ap-
"I talked to the admissions office
so frequently that I would just say,
'This is Jessica from Pennsylvania,'
and they'd say, 'We know you,'"
She completed several applica-'
tions and interviews and made a
20-minute casting video before be-
ing selected for the show. She said
the application process took about a
month and a half.
"It was grueling, because they
would ask for one thing and you'd
send it in and be like, 'There's one
thing I can cross off,'" she said. "Then
they'd be like, 'Will you do another
interview? Will you e-mail us a pho-
to? Will you send us a tape?'"
Making the casting video posed a
challenge for her, she said.
"It's a little bit awkward at
first, trying to portray who
you are in a very unnatural
situation of sticking a video
camera in your face and
basically talking to it."
"It's a little bit awkward at first,
trying to portray who you are in a
very unnatural situation of sticking
a video camera in your face and
basically talking to it," she said. "So
basically I boiled it dowri to how I
am and acted silly and goofy. I think
,the thing that AOL appreciated most
when they watched it was the fact
that I was very real, and I was very
natural and genuine about it."
Each week Jessica gets an assign-
ment from her producer based on her
schedule for the week. She also is re-
quired to record video confessionals
and keep a blog on AOL at least once
a week, and converse with viewers if
they have questions or comments.

Board quashes Plaza
By ASHTON GROSZ
Members of the Downtown
Redevelopment Advisory Board unani-
mously passed a motion Wednesday to
disallow a planned homeless sleepover
in the downtown plaza due to concerns
over its legality.
The sleepover, organized by Alachua
County Commissioner Rodney Long
and the Alachua County Coalition for
the Homeless and Hungry, violates an
ordinance restricting the use of public
spaces, such as the plaza, for sleeping.
A permit is required.
"We're not sure whether
awareness of homeless on the
plaza benefits what this board
is doing -- trying to do."

During the meeting, regulations
"that prohibit the use of public spaces
for private uses that result in persons
eating, sleeping and using public out-
door 'rooms' as living quarters" were
stressed in a city report revised by
board member Linda McGurn.

Confusion erupted over a Gainesville

committed a misdemeanor crime.
The policy came into question after two
Tennessee fans were taken to jail in viola-

misdemeanor, while in-state Florida fans
received only written citations.

Kameg said. "The open contain-

The change in policy pertains to all mis-
demeanor violations and not just the open
container ordinance. GPD will continue to
carry out the open container law at football
games and otherwise, Kameg said.
"We've seen a direct correlation be-
tween an increase in alcohol enforcement
and better fan behavior," Kameg said.

SFCC reaches out
By STEPHANIE RODRIGUEZ
Alligator Writer .
In an effort to reach out to the East Gainesville community,
SFCC revealed a 10-step comprehensive plan geared to im-
proving the area.
The five-year strategic plan will bring college resources to
residents in high-poverty regions.
"Santa Fe Community College has made a commitment
to be certain that all the resources are provided equally," said
SFCC President Jackson Sasser.
With a standing budget of more than
$150,000, the plan is aimed at improving

Students at Oasis Enrichment Academy
were provided with pencils, pencil sharpeners, snacks and
paper, said Sharla Head-Jones, principal. "
"I think hundreds and thousands will benefit from the ser-
vices and programs that will be offered," Head-Jones said.
In addition to providing materials for the students, the
plan gave teachers stipends if they work after school and on
Saturday to improve student's scores.
"Our students gained 500-800 points [on the FCAT]," Head-

The location opened at 8:20 a.m.
but no voters had arrived yet.
Kent Tambling, vice president
of operations for Accelerated Data
Works, Inc., the company that
digitized UF's voting system, said
Tuesday's problems were due
mainly to human error.
Tambling said many poll work-
ers never touched a mouse before.
"Poll workers had to be trained
on the new system,"-he wrote in an e-
mail. 'They are certified poll workers
from the county, I believe, and some
were unfamiliar with web browsers."
Tambling said the majority of
comments about the new system on
Tuesday were positive.
Maland said the online system
went. through a test run before the
election but every problem did not
surface. Only a cumulative exam
would show all the bugs.
"You can't eliminate all the prob-
lems in testing until you have a first
full-scale test," he said.
Senate Secretary Glenda
Frederick said Tuesday's issues are
not a valid reason to keep digital
voting from calling UF home.
"It works much better than
PeopleSoft," she said of UF's
implementation troubles with the
finance and human-resources com-
puter program. "Look how long (15
months) we've been using that."
Maland said he was optimistic
about the future of online voting.
"You've got to give something a
fighting chance," he said.

COMPLAINTS, from page 1
Impact officials brought up this issue with Dean of
Students Gene Zdziarski, along with concerns about
Gator Party Rawlings-area candidate William Perry.
They accused Perry of battery and sexual harassment.
Impact spokeswoman Allison Cullin said Perry cat-
called to Impact campaigners, shouting phrases like,
"Hey baby, I'll give you a real shirt," and "I'm always
looking for a first lady."
Party officials also allege that Perry knocked flyers
out of Impact candidate Victor Bard's hands and pulled
away a student Bard was campaigning to.
Cullin said she spoke to Gator Party campaigner and
Senate President Pro-Tempore John Boyles and asked
Perry to stop his behavior, but the actions continued.
"We just lament the fact that possibly someone like this
will be representing the Rawlings area," Jardon said.
Boyles and Perry declined comment, and Gator Party
spokesman Thomas Philpot did not return phone calls
from the Alligator regarding Perry.
Both parties have expressed concern about votes
submitted by Rawlings-area residents for Broward-area
Until 3 p.m. Monday, students registered in the
Rawlings district could only vote for Broward senators.
Philpot said those votes may need to be invalidated.
"Students have a reasonable expectation to walk into
the polls and simply vote and walk out and not deaP
with these problems," he said.
The Impact Party filed election complaints Wednesday
about polls opening late, polls out of order, a banner hung
in the Plaza of the Americas, and unapproved, oversized
banners hung outside fraternity houses.
The Gator Party filed five election complaints, but
their nature was not revealed to the Alligator.

Officials should allow
true Internet voting
So The Gator Party is the overall winner.
This bodes bad tidings for the Editorial Board, which
has senselessly abused Gator officials nonstop for weeks.
It also means these editorials are entirely useless.
Don't we have any faithful followers?
We're just going to assume that everyone who reads this
meant to vote for Impact but had a terrible accident before they
made it to the polls.
And our ego doesn't stop there. We're going to tell those
Gator senators exactly how they should run things, now that
they've proven they don't need us.
Better listen up.
First and foremost, we want true Internet voting. If this elec-
tion has shown us anything, it's that "secured-site" voting is a
mess, mostly because of the unneeded middleman.
Sure, this will make more students vote and could end the
Greek monopoly. But it would give the whole campus confi-
dence in Gator's dedication.
And it would be easier to garner votes when no one is think-
ing about what a pain in the ass it is. By implementing Internet
voting through GatorLink and letting every student vote at
home, Gator will show how wrong this Editorial Board has
been all along.
Wouldn't that feel good?
But since this isn't likely, we'll move on.
We've already discussed how most of Gator's platform is-
sues are impossible to implement. But that doesn't mean we
can't tell them how to do it.
And hopefully more students will get involved to help them
attain some of their goals. If you can't beat them, join them
and then fight from the inside.
Let's begin with their promise to close off portions of
University Avenue for football games.
We think officials shouldn't even try. It would just increase
traffic and drunken revelry.
We'd rather see Gator focusing on parking issues during
games. Every home game, hundreds of students with parking
decals are kicked out of their paid campus spots so big-shot
alumni can take their place.
Parking always gets everyone's blood boiling, and the last
thing students need is less parking spaces. Isn't this school sup-
posed to be about the students? Or do some alumni just give
money to get curbside parking for games?
But since Gator won most of the Senate seats, we'll assume
that a dosed University Avenue is what the voters want.
Alumni are the key. If they want parts of University Avenue
closed, parts of University Avenue will be dosed. Done.
The other issue we attacked this week is their promise to
move toward "green", natural gas buses.
Everyone likes the idea, but the funding just isn't there.
We think implementing Sunday bus service on campus is the
promise Gator should focus on. It's something students will im-
mediately benefit from, and it's a nonpartisan issue.
Gator has a chance to do some re-evaluating this semester.
The Editorial Board isn't stupid; both parties had some good
candidates ready to do some good work.
These past few months have shown that spending needs to
be controlled. Senators can serve their constituents by'simply
reading all the bills and truly thinking about the consequences
before anything goes to the Senate for a vote.
Don't pass off this responsibility to a few senators and then
take their word for it. Senators should do the research them-
Too often, bills slide through Senate with most not knowing
what they're passing. Paying more attention can go a long way
toward fiscal responsibility.

'Duo of evil' still an evil nuclear threat
R member 'the term axis of evil?
It hasn't been used much since Saddam Hussein
got booted, and no official name was provided for
the axis' remaining members. But I'm proposing one, and
I urge the president to start using it: the duo of evil.
Last week, Israel's foreign minister said that Iran is
six months away from knowing how to build a nuclear
bomb. Considering that the Iranian leadership and the
nation's president, alleged former terrorist Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad, are hardly shy about declaring their inten-
tion to wipe Israel off the map, I can sympathize with
But the European Union's major players are freaked
out about Iran going nuclear too. The International Atomic
Energy Agency passed a resolution Saturday stating that
Iran be reported to'the UN Security Council for failure to
prove the peaceful intent of its nuclear program.
There were 22 votes for the resolution, 12 abstentions
and one vote against. Russia and China were the biggest
names opposing the resolution, according to Al-Jazeera.
Russia is building a $1 billion nuclear reactor for Iran,
and China hopes to exploit Iran's vast energy resources for
itself. The one vote against the resolution came from Hugo
Chavez loves getting cozy with America's enemies, such
as Fidel Castro, Muammar Gaddafi and even Saddam. His
country's vote was less about economics than it was about
giving President Bush the diplomatic finger.
Meanwhile, recent news out of North Korea has been
as disturbing as ever. Pyongyang has requested that the
U.N. stop providing food aid, partly because the govern-
ment hates being dependent on the United States. North
Korea is emerging slowly from a famine that wiped out 2
million people by some estimates, and the UN thinks this
decision could kill more than 100,000 more.
Six-nation talks with North Korea produced an agree-
ment last week similar to one
negotiated by the Clinton ad-
ministration. The 1994 Agreed
Framework paved the way for a
policy of naive optimism and ap-
peasement, which did not break

Humanity's politics all over campus
When I was a kid, my- mom
used to tell me I would
have to get used to politics
for the rest of my life. I assumed she
was referring to the meaningless bick-
ering between parties every four years
when the nation finds itself overcome
with an election.
I was very, very wrong.
Recently, I've discovered that in
actuality, my mother was referring
to the politics of humanity. The way
we shout out accusations and cover
our ears. The way we point fingers
and run away. The way we focus
our magnifying glasses and shun
Even here on campus, a haven for

Even recently, we've dealt with this
same issue on campus. Kanye West
claimed George Bush doesn't care
about black people, while Bush's de-
fenders are pointing at Condoleezza

There is no way that every single
one of these groups or people are
right, and it's impossible they're all
But none of them are willing to
admit any truth in their opposition's
argument, nor are they going to pro-
claim the holes in their-own.
Let's be honest for a second. Our
nation is far from perfect, but it's
not evil or worthy of the term "the
great Satan" either. We've supported
terrorism, but we've also done a lot
of really good things for the world.
Furthermore, the politics of our offi-
cials do not directly represent the be-
liefs and thoughts of our people, who
have much more in common with the
rest of the world than we ever hear.
Our nation has come a long way
from the segregation and racism of
our past, but we also have a long way
to go before we eliminate many of the
unfair disadvantages minorities still
deal with today. Politicians are politi-
cians, but I think we can all agree they
each have different ways of getting to
the same goal.
I propose we re-evaluate the way
we approach each other in our lives
and our debates. Look for what you
have in common with your opposi-
tion. Be willing to admit the points in
your argument that are mere perspec-
tive rather than actual fact. Maybe if
we start caring more for everyone's
right to a voice rather than the volume
of our own, we can leave the politics
to the politicians and get back to being
equal members of an open society.

Airshow paid by sponsors; real problem is SUVs

According to Department of Defense regulations, the

footed the bill for this one.
I would like Mr. Kotsay to really think about the real
fuel problem our nation now faces. Is it the overwhelming
automobile fuel consumption caused by our insatiable
lust for huge vehicles and unnecessary travel, or is it an

Avenue Writer -. ,.
Apple iPod nanos and high-speed wireless Internet con-
nections hint at society's need for constant entertainment and
distraction in all aspects of life.
This need has spilled over into the world of fitness, and a
new revolution of working out has been born. It's called dance
fitness and it's the latest trend.
Dance fitness is any dance-oriented fitness class choreo-
graphed specifically to the music. There are a variety of dance-
fitness classes across the country, but one called Dance Trance is
hip-hopping its way into gyms right here in Gainesville.
Sporting black Dance Trance muscle T-shirts with the tattoo-
like Dance Trance logo, students of all ages and dance-experi-
ence levels mimic instructor Melissa Dameron-Vines' moves.
Switching between recent hip-hop beats such as "Don't
Cha" by the Pussycat-Dolls and hard-rock favorites such as
"Sweet Emotion" by Aerosmith, Dameron-Vines leads the
class through what she describes not as a workout, but "dance
"You don't think about that bad day at work, everything
gets left at the door," she said.
Dance Trance Fitness was created by Jay Hadline in 1993,
and its first central location was in Birmingham, Ala. Dameron-
Vines has been involved with Dance Trance since 1993 when
she took a Dance Trance Master Class in Birmingham.
She was one of four substitute instructors for Dance Trance
until Hadline moved the home-base studio to Jacksonville in
In August 2004, Dameron-Vines and her husband moved to
Gainesville so he could attend UF.
With a little help from Orion Fitness, 3441 W University
Ave., Dance Trance Gainesville was born.
Dameron-Vines said the main difference between Dance
Trance and a regular workout is the opportunity to break the
grind of daily life.
"We're so inhibited in daily life," she said. "You can't bust
out a hip roll in the middle of work or in the grocery aisle.
That's totally normal here in class."
Dameron-Vines also considers the music in the class another
major asset of Dance Trance. Using the latest hip-hop and rock
beats, Dance Trance dancers rock out for an hour to an hour
and a half. Dameron-Vines thinks the music is so important

X-Men worth the long wait
X-Men Legends II
iF'j. Never before have uneasy alli-
ances been so much fun.

video game released for all major systems on

course. Apocalypse, the aptly
named immortal super-mu-
tant, is doing stuff. Bad stuff.
And only this unlikely team
can stop him. (Duh.)
Like its predecessor, Legends II grants a
single gamer control over a team of four mu-
tants, or allows anywhere from one to three
of his friends to assist him in his battle against
Apocalypse's nearly infinite horde.
The game is exponentially more fun as more
And more so than before, gameplay in
Legends II is rewarding and diverse. Every

as super strength, flight, freeze beams and even

Play shows sad, real life
You've still got time to see a cli-
che-breaking play, on your very
own UF campus.
The Constans Theatre has a show
that will make you run to the nearest
blues bar, hoping to catch a good act.
"Side Man" offers a story line that
goes beyond the well-known image
of a jazz player at a bar. It goes into
the life story of a trumpet player's son
and his complicated life.
Clifford tells the
story of how his
parents met and
each other's lives,
why he thinks they
were happier before he was born.
He drives that point home when.
his mother explains it's his fault she
never got to see Frank Sinatra. He was
born on the day she was supposed to
go to the concert.
The play also describes the rela-
tionship between Clifford, his father
Gene, and his fellow jazz players.
Those on the bar scene include:
loose-lady bartender Patsy; Ziggy,
a player with a lisp; Jonesy, a drug-
gie jazzman; and Al, who refers to
a very good trumpet player as a
Clifford describes his memories
of his father as a jazz player who was
flexible enough to do both backup
and leads a "Side Man."
He also narrates how his parents
first met and their wedding night that
ended in jail. He says after he was
born, things progressively got worse.
Clifford can tell you all this be-
cause he is essentially the one who
held the family together all his life.
Gabriella couldn't do it be-
Vigier cause she was too
Curtain Call drunk, and his fa-
email@example.com other was indecisive
except his music.
As Clifford puts it, his father was
aware of everything when he was
playing the trumpet and of nothing
when he was not.
The set of the play is amazingly
authentic. It gives the audience an
even greater chance of being pulled
into this realistically sad story.
You can't help but feel for Clifford.
Who wouldn't feel for a guy who
basically took care of his incapable
parents all his life and was afraid to
move on because he worried about
what they'd do if he left?
This one's worth seeing.

Everyman hero pleases all ages
Bone: Out from Boneville
I love Bone!
OK, now that I have your at-
tention, get your filthy mind. out of the
gutter and listen up.
For all you fans of Jeff Smith's comic
"Bone," be sure to check out the video
game adaptation of "Bone: Out from
Boneville" by Telltale Games. There's a
free demo available on the Web, kids.
And for the rest of you, here's the
skinny: Jeff Smith created "Bone" back
in 1991 and worked on it intermittently
until finishing the 55-issue saga about
Fone Bone and his cousins Phoney Bone
and Smiley Bone in 2004. The comic
- which has won multiple awards, in-
cluding the prestigious Eisner Awards
and Harvey Awards follows Fone
Bone, the everyman hero, through a
tale that falls somewhere between the
stories of J.R.R. Tolkien and Walt Kelly's
"Pogo" comic strip. The comics have
been collected for your consumption
into nine volumes and
You can also snag the
new volumes from
graphic novel imprint
One particularly delightful thing
about the Scholastic reprints, other
than getting comics into kids' grubby
little paws, is that they're in color for
the first time. Don't let the Scholastic
thing throw you off though: "Bone" is
great no matter your age.
So now that we're all just about on
the same page, Telltale Games has taken
the first volume, "Out from Boneville,"
and made it into an interactive fun
house where you romp around as Fone
Bone, following the plot of the comics.
I've played the demo and let me tell
you, the voices are dead on, the dialogue
is straight out of the
Karo a comics or so charac-
Bielecki ter-appropriate that

My only com-
plaint about che
demo: It's too short.
But Telltale Games will give you the
rest of the Bone adventure for a crisp
$19.99, and that's a deal that even mon-
ey-grubbing Phoney Bone wouldn't
So, even if you hate reading, you
can check out the video game, fall in
love with the characters, find yourself
craving more "Bone," and turn to the
comics. Somehow, I'll still feel like I've
done my job. Get the demo at www.bo

Alabama or Auburn.
Jackson chose UF. And on
Saturday his hometown fans
have their first opportunity to
thank him in person.
"We'll see how the fans
react and how they treat me
when I come back home," said
Jackson, a Hoover, Ala., na-
tive. "I know they're kind of
mad at me because I left there.
"I've never been booed before,
not personally. I don't know
how I'll react to it, but I won't
take it to heart. I know where
they're coming from."
"It was real difficult. I
thought 'why did I come
here?' I thought about
transferring and coming
back home, but I just
stuck with it."
How could Jackson not un-
derstand the pain and disbelief
felt by the entire Crimson Tide
With no professional sports
team to speak of, the Hoover
youth has a glorified team dad
with tradition just 45 minutes
west in Tuscaloosa.
And when you're the big-
gest star on a state champion-
ship team, playing for Alabama
is more of a birthright than an
"He had the media, the
press, the Alabama boosters
on him. The teachers at school
were all Alabama fans," Hoover
High football coach Rush
Propst said. "They'd constantly
tell him 'I can't believe you're
not going to Alabama.
"Alabama is right down the
road. We can come see you play,
it's only 45 minutes away.'"
While Jackson says he never
thought twice about a fresh
start in a new state, Propst

I'd be shocked if Chris Leak's

really well to exploit the Gators'
weaknesses. Meyer calls Kenneth

Jackson considered transfer after playing limited role during freshman season
JACKSON, from page 20
Ron Zook spending four hours in the Jackson
home giving his spiel, while former Alabama
coach Mike Price who was forced to leave
the school in a scandal before ever coaching
a game spent about 30 minutes recruiting
"I think if Mike Shula had been the football
coach here with the staff [of Alabama natives]
he presently has, I think, [Alabama] would
have had a better chance to land him," Propst
But Chad was always a kid who wanted
to go out of state and he made up his mind a
long time ago."
That was three years ago.
Now, Jackson returns home every bit the
star the locals expected him to become.
With Alabama's most meaningful game
this decade quickly approaching, Jackson
could be the man vwho derails any plans of a
Crimson Tide revival.
Since Urban Meyer and his spread offense
arrived in Gainesville in January, the first-year
UF coach made it dear that Jackson would be
a key ingredient to a Southeastern Conference
Jackson's 32 receptions put him on pace
to eclipse Carlos Alvarez's 36-year old
school record of 88 receptions in a season.
Reidel Anthony's record of 18 touch-
down receptions is also in danger of falling
-Jackson already has six and another on the
"He's a big receiver, very athletic, and
he can catch," UF tailback Skyler Thornton
said. "He can practically do anything he
wants to anybody out there on that field."
That is now, but at one point Jackson
couldn't do anything to anyone on the field.
Despite his accolades coming out of
Hoover, and his public spurning of the Tide,
a dejected Jackson saw just limited time on
special teams his freshman season.
Propst said he was disappointed Zook
didn't just redshirt Jackson instead of wast-
ing a'year of eligibility.
But Propst said he couldn't blame Zook,
since Jackson apparently came to UF har-
.boring somewhat of a negative work ethic.
"It was real difficult," Jackson said. "I
thought 'why did I come here?' I thought
about transferring and coming back home,
but I just stuck with it."
Jackson decided to let his talent speak
In the 2004 game against Tennessee,
Jackson recorded just one catch. But a sin-
