its drills and picks to take part in
Mighty Molar 2005, a day of friendly
competition for faculty, students and
their families at Lake Wauburg on
Saturday to welcome freshmen and
the new school year.
"It's a good way to get stoked and

Despite golf putts and relay races,
the fiercest competition of the day
took place on a picnic table set up

Bike race raises bucks for VetMed
By EMILY KISER
Alligator Contributing Writer
Students, faculty and friends of the
College of Veterinary Medicine' spent
Sunday on their bicycles to raise more than
$25,000 in scholarships.
Team VetMed cycled 100 miles through
Alachua and Marion counties for the
Gainesville Cycling Club's Horse Farm
Hundred, part qf the 2005 Gainesville
"This is probably our biggest event of
the year," said Christie Cichra, a senior in
the college and captain of Team VetMed.
"People have been training since summer
for this ride."
This is Team VetMed's eighth year par-
ticipating in the event.
"Over the years, we've probably raised
over $125,000," said Joseph DiPietro, dean
of the College of Veterinary Medicine. "At
the end of every year, we give out two
Horse Farm Hundred scholarships."
Team VetMed had 65 to 70 members
riding this year, DiPietro said, making
it the largest team in the Horse Farm
The ride, which started at Morningside
Nature Center, 3540 E University Ave.,
took riders past horse farms and along the
Gainesville-Hawthome State Trail before
ending back at the nature center.
"It's a beautiful ride, a great day
and good camaraderie. It's a
great team event."
Dean, College of Veterinary Medicine
"It's a beautiful ride, a great day and
good camaraderie," DiPietro said. "It's a
great team event."
Riders of all skill levels are welcome.

of new bikers," Cichra said. "For some
people, they bought a bike for the first time

the course without racing in the interest of
simply having fun.

"We follow the story about the geese
staying in a formation," Cichra said. "They
fly together, and we ride together."
Members of Team VetMed have the op-
tion of riding the full 100 miles, or opting
for the shorter 25- or 55-mile rides.
Gainesville Cycling Club member and
event volunteer Andrew Gill said an av-
erage race takes between eight and nine
hours, although the record finish is just
over four hours, with rest stops along the
route and provided at the halfway point.
"Nobody gets left behind," Gill said.
"Suppolrt vehicles cover the course. They
pick people up and help with flat tires."

Maland cited for election complaint
* THE ELECTION COMMISSION'S
JOB IS NOT YET OVER.
By JUSTIN RICHARDS -
In the early hours of Friday morn-
ing, the Student Government Elections
Commission found Supervisor of Elections
Daniel Maland in violation of SG election
The first conviction involved a lack
of open polls during the required hours,
and the second regarded disenfranchised
The codes require all polling locations to
be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Several polls
were not working until hours after 8 a.m.
"All the polling locations were open,"
Maland argued. "Students just couldn't
vote at them."
Maland made paper ballots available on
the second day of elections, but some com-
missioners advised him to have a backup
plan in place from the beginning.
"In this election, there were problems.
Unforeseen though they may be, that is not
an excuse for not having a backup plan,"
said Impact spokeswoman Allison Cullin,
who filed the complaint against Maland.
The commission also found Maland
responsible for voting irregularities in the
Student Government- Rawlings dis-
From 8 am.
to 3 p.m. Tuesday, residents of the Rawlings
district could only vote for Broward candi-
dates, and 37 did so.
"You can't just say, 'Whoops, it was our
first try we'll try harder next time,'"
Cullin said. "There should have been a
Maland said the problems that occurred
were "for the most part" beyond his control.
Because he is not a political party or
candidate, the elections commission cannot
impose a penalty on the supervisor of elec-
tions. But Cullin said she was not seeking a
penalty when she filed her complaint.
"We just want to have it in public record
that this election was flawed," she said.
Several other complaints were post-
poned until a follow-up meeting of the

The commission will also hear about 15
complaints from Impact against houses on
Impact claims that banners hung in front
of these houses violate SG election codes.
Cullin said the banners exceed the statu-
tory size for on-campus campaign material
and lack approval by the supervisor of elec-
tions, deeming them to be "illegal on every
ground they exist."
Student Senate to decide contested District D, E seats
ELECTION, from page 1
Boyles said some students do
not think allowing the Senate to
decide the fate of the seat is fair.
"If the student body thinks
it's not fair, there should be a
change," he said.
Boyles said a runoff election
would cost students more time
and money. But a runoff is exact-
ly what Lloyd-Montgomery said
he thought was going to happen
when he heard news of the tie.
"Sometimes, things may not
be fair all the time," he said.
"That's how it goes sometimes
with the Senate and the House
of Representatives. Things just
happen that way."
Lloyd-Montgomery said he
should win the seat because he
would be proactive and would
not just be another face in the
His opponent, Kane, said she

District A Senator-elect
Lauren Asher received the
most write-in votes for District
E, and Interfraternity Council
President John Dicks earned the
most write-ins for District F, but
neither can take their seats be-
cause they do not live there.
District E is labeled as all

passes 20 zip codes. Boyles said

Pep rally officials must
take fiscal responsibility
The Editorial Board is glad this week's classes will be
Gator Growl is Friday, and in true football fa-
naticism, the entire university gets the day off. We're all
in support for a day of classes transformed into a day of
This year's line up has the potential to topple last year's
failure. We actually want to see comedians Wayne Brady
and Greg Giraldo.
But our excitement doesn't mean we support the means
to Gator Growl's end.
This summer, Student Government subsidized 15,000
student tickets by donating $140,000 to the event, which
is run by Florida Blue Key, a private honor society. Those
tickets will now be $5, instead of the normal $18.
At first, senators were ready to hand over more than
$300,000. Vice President of Student Affairs Patricia Telles-
Irvin thankfully stepped in and vetoed that insane idea.
Furthermore, after asking SG for the money, FBK of-
ficials realized the $25,000 they thought they had in their
Growl account was actually more than $100,000. It was lost
within the PeopleSoft accounting software UF uses.
This doesn't exactly make us feel safe handing so much
money to FBK.
In fact, the entire situation reeks of mismanagement and
Attendance at lasf year's Gator Growl was low. So in an
act of brilliance; SG gave student money to subsidize tickets
students aren't going to buy.
The student tickets for this Friday's show weren't sold
out as of Wednesday.
So to recap: SG uses students' money to lower the price
of 15,000 tickets, and then students don't buy those tickets.
SG is getting in the way of economics. If Gator Growl
appeals to people, people will go to Gator Growl. If ticket
sales are low one year, then organizers need to find out
what went wrong.
Instead, they simply ask SG for the money individual
students won't give them.
This doesn't seem like SG is working for the students.
It sounds like they're working for FBK. Is it a coincidence
most senators are members of the organization?
Less money can ensure better acts.
Take last year's Gator Growl. Organizers paid Engvall
$90,000 for his performance, and his appearance was a
failure. But the secondary performer, comedian Dane Cook,
was paid $45,000 and got students excited.
This year, with fiscal constraints, FBK is doling out
$65,000 to Wayne Brady, who appeals to more students and
is better known for quality stand-up.
If SG let FBK solve its own problems, the quality of Gator
Growl might actually improve. Organizers would have to
re-establish their reputations, rather than riding on the
quality of Growls long gone.
And let's face it, Gator Growl hasn't lived up to its repu-
tation in years.
SG has had to bail it out before.
In 2002, SG gave the event $200,000 because not enough
student tickets had been sold. That brought Bill Cosby, but
it didn't help subsequent Growls.
. If FBK is truly separate from the university, and if it has
most of the creative control over the event, then its organiz-
ers need to grow up and deal with their responsibility. .
Otherwise, SG should insist on overseeing the event that
students' money is supporting.
Thus far, it seems as though they've thrown money at an
event without asking for any accountability.

Media harps on negative news of Iraq
here are two types of people who criticize the news
media for not providing more coverage from Iraq
and Afghanistan lately: those who feel the media is
disrespecting our troops by ignoring them and those who
get grim satisfaction from any news that makes our troops
The people in the first category believe our troops are
not being recognized for their accomplishments and that
more coverage would help them. But even those right-
wing nuts at Fox News don't waste time covering Army
civil-affairs teams that build soccer fields, run women's
centers or give Iraqis classes on entrepreneurship.
Liberals love to talk about how profit-driven media is
the death of journalism, and when it comes to Iraq, they
may be right. The only journalists who dig deeper than car
bombs and constitutions are bloggers embedded with the
troops or native Iraqis themselves.
The media is not the friend of the military or of good
news anywhere right now. To think otherwise is naive.
A psychologist and a talk-show host of a new television
show in Kabul discuss problems facing Afghan women,
a subject which has traditionally been taboo. The show
strives to be the Afghan Oprah.
Did you hear about that? I thought not.
News like that stinks of progress, and progress doesn't
In the second category are those who hate to see people
being distracted by news from New Orleans. Their motto
is, "Keep your eyes on the quagmire."
They believe more news coverage will show that our
military is simply not cutting it. In their minds, America
needs to pull out and leave the Iraqis and Afghans to sort
out their affairs themselves.
These backward-looking chuckleheads would rather
talk about WMDs than the conse-
qquences of a premature pullout.
Maybe the problem we face in
the Middle East is not the capacity
to get the job done but the will to
get the job done. Liberals want us
Matthew Melone to believe this operation is hope-
Taking Up Arms less, and the media, with its con-
firstname.lastname@example.org stant images of death, is chipping
away at our morale.
So I give three cheers for any
controversy which, takes America's minds off Baghdad
and Kabul. Hurray for liberals attacking Tom DeLay and
Bill Bennett! Hurray for John Roberts being confirmed as
Supreme Court Chief Justice! Hurray for college football!
No news is good news, but news about petty politics
and sports will suffice.
If you have no stomach for nation building, if you have
no faith in the American military, if you don't believe the
power of freedom will prevail in the end, if you don't be-
lieve God has things under control, if you're just a gener-
ally pessimistic person, then you are probably better off
shutting up, grabbing a beer and watching "Family Guy."
But if you support our troops getting the job done and
'building the roots of democracy in Iraq and Afghanistan,
remember that happy news doesn't sell. We're better off
with no news rather than one-sided doom and gloom.
Since the media is incapable of presenting the good
with the bad, let's be grateful most people who work in
the news have short attention spans and are generally too
lazy, cowardly and greedy to cover the Middle East much

DeLay's past riddled with guilt
The House of Representatives just lost
its idiot: Republican and former House
Majority Leader Tom DeLay.
DeLay, who represented Texas in the
House, was charged with conspiring
with two men to use corporate money for
Republican candidates in a state election.
The representative had to resign temporarily
as House majority leader.
DeLay called this fiasco the result of
blatant political partisanship, according to
Funny he would say that when he is
known for his rigid conservatism.
Whether the congressman is guilty or not
is anybody's guess right now. But when you
look at DeLay's past, the evidence points to
Coincidentally, DeLay has opposed at-
tempts to reform campaign finance. He may
be the staunchest opponent of campaign
finance reform, according to The Texas
Not -only that; DeLay's view 'of money
takes away from his plea of innocence.
He is quoted in the Congress Daily as
saying, "Money is not the root of all evil in
politics. In fact, money is the lifeblood of
When I first read that quote, I couldn't
-decide whether I had read the words of a
man who loves his country or the wisdom
of a gangster. -
If DeLay believes money must run poli-
Jed Pressgrove tics and that evil can't
U-Wire spring from it, we
might see the congress-
man serving a couple of years in jail soon.
And if that happens, Americans should
rejoice because DeLay is a man with skewed
Of course, I mainly laugh at his
Neanderthal gargling of phlegm.
CNN and Fox News provided me with
DeLay's game plan in the court: "My defense
in this case will not be technical or legalistic.
It will be categorical and absolute."
What is he talking about?
It doesn't matter what you believe in
court. Courts work within a legal system;
you must be legalistic in your case. DeLay
should be lobotomized.
Although I don't mean to downplay
DeLay's unfortunate dumbness, his arrogant
statements and disregard for the American
people shine through his expensive clothes
The New York Times reported that after
being asked by a waiter not to smoke on
government property (in accordance with a
no smoking policy), DeLay said, "I am the
federal government." This guy should have
been removed from his position a long time
However, we can only hope DeLay will

Letter to the Editor
Gator fans mar UF's reputation
Although I'm an Alabama fan,
I've never had anything against the
I was actually a fan, of sorts, be-
cause I do not like Miami; UF was
the Florida football team I could
cheer for. If you guys were playing
Auburn, Tennessee or Georgia I was
actually your No. 1 fan. However,
I have considered changing my
I was in attendance at the UA
vs. UF game Saturday. We showed
up ready for a great game. I felt
like this was a preview of the SEC
championship, and I was excited.
We are making a big comeback this
season, and I felt Florida would be a
great measure of how good we are.
Despite the score, your cheer-
leaders walked in front of the stu-
dent section at halftime and began to
talk smack. One of the cheerleaders
made rude hand gestures to the stu-
dent section and then began to point
to the crowd. He made a number
five with his hand and pointed to
the Florida emblem on his uniform.
We took that in stride.
However, that would not be the
last hateful thing Florida would in-
flict upon the Tide.
We were playing well, and ya'll
were putting up a great fight. Then,
in the fourth quarter, Tyrone Prothro
broke his leg. He didn't just crack it.
The area from his foot to about three
inches above his ankle was not con-
nected to the rest of his leg. It was
We waited and tried to see what
had happened. A silence had come
over the crowd of more than 81,000
when I heard a commotion coming
from above the student section. I
glanced up and saw several Florida
fans, who looked like students,
cheering and doing the Gator
They yelled all kinds of horrible
things like "There goes your sea-
son," and "Quit being [an expletive]
and get up." It was bad.
The student section became up-
set. Just before Prothro was carried
off the field, we began to chant his
name to honor him. Then, the same
rude groups of guys began to yell
at fans and make obscene hand
I am very disappointed your fans
would do that in good conscience.
I hope the other teams you play
this season will show more class to
you all if a player is hurt.

14, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, OCTOBER 3,2005
By BRYAN APP
Alligator Staff Writer
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. Once
upon a time, the word Alabama
was synonymous with success.
But it's been a while since the
Tide rolled a team of significance.
n-There was a 31-0 trouncing of
Louisiana State at Death Valley
in 2002. Then there was that
ing 34-7 defeat of UF in 1999 after
handing the Gators a rare loss at
the Swamp two months earlier.
Neither of those routs live up
to what the Crimson Tide did
With the force of 1,000 el-
ephants, No. 15 Alabama (5-0, 3-0
SEC) stampeded the Gators 31-3,
injecting one of college football's
most-storied programs with a
sense of legitimacy once again.
"For all the people up north and
on the west coast who don't really
know about us, it really is [a break-
out game]. Back in the day, they did
know about us," Alabama safety
Roman Harper said. "Maybe we'll
get a.little bit of love from around
the nation. Maybe we'll get a little
bit of respect."
Considering the lack of rever-
ence some UF players verbally dis-
played for the Tide leading up to
the game, that respect might come
from a little closer to home.
As the stadium announcer
roared, inciting pandemonium
throughout the student section
after Saturday's game, "This is
-If they didn't before, perhaps
the Gators realized the slogan's
meaning after Tide quarterback
Brodie Croyle rocketed a game-
clinching 87-yard touchdown pass
on Alabama's first play from scrim-
mage. Or maybe after Alabama
defensive end Chris Harris inter-
cepted UF quarterback Chris Leak,
resulting in a 14-0 lead three plays
later. Or when the crowd taunted
the Gators with chants of "over-
rated" with the game out of hand
in the fourth quarter. *
Whenever it was, Harper hopes
UF and the nation now realize
Alabama is back because he has
known all along.
"I came in and said we were
going to win by 28," Harper said.
"Brodie told me if we can score 30,
we're going to win. How many did
we score? Thirty-one. So he was
right, and I was right."
"We've been through the
rough times. We know
what it feels like to be on
the other side of it. We're
not going to let it go to our
Harper might have been in the
minority with his score prediction,
but perhaps never again.
A week after trouncing South
Carolina for what he called the big-
gest win of his career, Alabama's
Mike Shula stood behind the po-
dium as the first coach in school
history to defeat a top-5 team at
Not much for theatrics, how-
ever, Shula dismissed, notions of
a Crimson-colored Renaissance,
hoping his team just-can cope with
the newfound stardom.
"Obviously, we're going to get
a little more recognition now," said
Shula, a former Buccaneers of-
fensive coordinator. "We've got to
learn to handle that. I don't think
we've really had that yet. I think
we took a step today. The best
thing is we took a step that took
us to 5-0."
Considering the probation-rid-
dled dark ages the Tide seems to
be rising out of, Croyle believes his
teammates will remain focused.
"We've been through the rough
times," Croyle' said. "We know
what it feels like to be on the other
side of it. We're not going to let it
go to our heads."

The running back-by-committee approach Meyer has
employed since the beginning of the year hasn't yielded the
production he expected. On Sunday, he announced that a
new player might be in the mix.
Redshirt freshman Markus Manson, who has had problems
in the past with fumbling, is undoubtedly the fastest option of
the bunch. His speed could reinvigorate the Gators' stagnant
"Markus is taking care of the ball better then he has, and
he shows flashes," Meyer said. "Markus does have that speed
to hit a hole, and this week in practice Markus is going to get
an opportunity to carry the ball."
Still, after watching the film, Meyer admitted the offense
as a whole is well behind what he desired while UF is still in
the heat of a relentless SEC schedule.
"We have not functioned as an offensive unit in the '05
season yet, and it's shocking," he said. "It's disappointing,
but we have some problems that need to be solved."

ANDREW, from page 16
Sorry, you haven't earned that right.
So here's the question of the week: Whom
should the Gator Nation approach with pitch-
forks and torches? Who is responsible, for this
stinker of all stinkers?
Well, Urban Meyer, the honeymoon just
turned into a quiet night of Scrabble with the
wife. Sure, it's easy to blame the man on-top,
but forget the X's and O's for a moment. A game
starts long before the players take the field, and ,
isn't Meyer supposed to be the master motiva-
tor and king of preparation?
I don't know what Meyer said to his players
during the week, but considering that Herring,
Mincey and the gang didn't seem too concerned
about a date with the Tide means that Meyer
and the rest of the coaching staff failed to relay
the danger of playing in Tuscaloosa.
Believe me, Bryant-Denny Stadium was
louder on Saturday thah the Swamp has been in
a long time. The fans have waited years for this
The Gators lost that game before it started.
Remember that first quarter? Alabama's
Mark Anderson slammed Chris Leak to the
ground on UF's very first possession.
Meanwhile, it took a total of 12 seconds for
'Bama quarterback Brodie Croyle to find Tyrone
Prothro for a touchdown on Alabama's opening
possession. That's not just X's and O's. That's
fear, shock and minimal preparation.
Speaking of shock, Meyer took the po-
dium after Saturday's game looking like a shell-
shocked war veteran fresh off a Vietnam jungle
excursion. You're not alone Urb everyone's
a little shocked.
In the end, the Gators and Meyer ultimately
will prevail, but it may not be this season.
Suddenly, visions of Bloomin' Onions and the
Outback Bowl have re-emerged.

SEC's No. 1 defense collapses to Tide

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. Maybe it wasn't
that bad. It's not like Alabama scored its first
touchdown in under 10 seconds.
No, it took the Crimson Tide a grand total
of 12 seconds on their first possession to reach
the end zone.
The Gators never recovered. Basically, in
that single 12-second span, UF went from
first in the Southeastern Conference in de-

flawless pass attack. On that first Alabama
drive, Croyle stunned the Gators with an 87-
yard touchdown pass to Tyrone Prothro.
It wasn't Alabama's only one-play drive
that led to a touchdown.
Croyle would repeat the feat with 7:22
remaining in the second quarter, when his
65-yard pass to Keith Brown gave the Tide
a 24-3 lead.
In the process, Croyle broke the school
record for career passing touchdowns,
eclipsing the former record of 35 shared by
