* STUDENT GOVERNMENT,
FBK TO SHARE SUBSIDY.
By DAVID COHEN
Florida Blue Key and
Student Government teamed up
Wednesday to make all Gator
Growl student tickets available at
the $5 subsidized price.
Student Body President Joe
Goldberg said he saw a number
of students at the University Box
Office leave Wednesday when the
teller said Growl student tickets
had jumped to $18, the regular
price, after the original allotment
of student tickets sold out.
"I really don't want any stu-
dents to get turned away," he
said. "We want to make sure all
students get to see the show."
Student Senate decided to sub-
sidize 15,000 student tickets dur-
ing the summer, taking $140,000
out of SG reserves and lowering
the price to $5.
Goldberg said FBK, which runs
Growl, and Student Government
Productions will split paying the
$13 subsidy for the remainder of
student tickets. Last year, about
$80,000 was taken out of SGP's
budget for the same reason.
"We want to make sure

UF student body president
Goldberg said because SGP's
budget was approved a year ago,
Student Senate was not needed to
make a decision on the matter.
Students who purchased tick-
ets at regular price can go to the
FBK offices in room 312 of the
Reitz Union, show their ticket
and receive a refund.
Gator Growl Producer Robert
Carmody and SGP Chairman
Joey Van de Bogart both said they
were supportive of the decision.

Nobel honors Gator grad

The Gator Nation will extend

a bachelor's degree from UF in

He is the second person to

Urkel actor to speak on life before, after television
By BOBBY KEITH
-Alligator Contributing Writer
Whether or not he did it then, he'll do it at
UF this month.
Jaleel White, better known to many as
the character Steve Urkel from the sitcom
"Family Matters," is scheduled to speak at the
University Auditorium on Oct. 27 at 8 p.m.
The event is sponsored by Accent, UF's
student-run speakers' bureau.
The former TV star's outrageous portrayal
of the character Urkel on "Family Matters," a
comedy about the daily life of a black family
living in the Chicago suburbs, was a pop-
culture phenomenon during the show's run
from 1989 to 1998.
Urkel was famous for his thick-rimmed
glasses, suspenders with pants pulled up to
his chest and obnoxious snorting laugh.
While White probably will not show up to
his speech dressed as Urkel, he will discuss
his experience growing up as a child TV star
and how he was typecast as his character
when the show ended. He also will offer
general advice on writing for television and
recount his story of entering the real world
after graduating from college.
"I feel that most people at UF grew up
watching the show and that he's a speaker
they will enjoy seeing," Accent Chairman
Evan Tyroler said.
This will be White's first time speaking to
a crowd of students on the lecture circuit.
"I feel that most people at UF
grew up watching the show and
that he's a speaker they will enjoy
"White's down-to-earth perspective
will offer advice on ways to find one's
own voice in life while still standing out
from the crowd," an Accent press release
. Accent also will bring speaker Kyle
Maynard to the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom
on Nov. 1 at 8 p.m.
Maynard's lecture, entitled "Success
Without Excuses," is based on his experi-
ences living with a congenital defect that left
him with underdeveloped arms and legs.
Despite his handicap, Maynard went on to
become a distinguished high-school wrestler
Doors will open at 7 p.m. for both White's-
and Maynard's speeches, and both are free
and open to the public.
Accent, the largest .student-run speak-
ers bureau in the nation, is the Student
Government organization in charge of bring-
ing notable speakers to campus.

Media focus on Miller
masks important trial
The Editorial Board has been mulling over how it feels

plight to protect her source.
We're still not sure about all the details, but since we're in the
journalism business, we thought we would add our voice to the
Bear with us. Before we jump into the fray, we're going to
have to lay out the facts.
Here's what we know
Miller talks to Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff
Lewis "Scooter" Libby. News reports fail to pinpoint.how
such a highly ranked official received an 8-year-old's nick-
Someone leaks the identity of CIA operative Valerie Plame
to columnist Robert Novak, who prints the information in an
apparent act of idiotic malice. Plame's husband had recently
debunked some of the administration's biological-weapons
claims. Novak still won't give up his sources.
Miller never writes about it.
Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald thinks Libby is involved, so
he asks Miller to talk about her conversations with him. Miller
refuses because she had a confidentiality agreement with him.
Miller goes to jail. Almost three months later, Miller agrees to
testify because Libby called her and gave his heartfelt consent.
Critics say Libby offered his consent a year ago and ask why
After all, there must be something sinister.
But Miller's rebuttal is that an official release signed through
lawyers could have been pressed upon Libby. Furthermore, she
said she would be putting too much pressure on her source
if she called to confirm whether he really wanted her to go
through with it.
The Editorial Board has a few conjectures to throw your
One: Maybe Miller is just a crazy, overzealous reporter who
has a creepy kind of self-control.
And two: Who cares?
This media frenzy is seriously out of control.
Take a look at all the stories about Miller in the last few
weeks. Only a few actually mention what the real case is about.
The rest regurgitate all the "suspicious" questions that sur-
round Miller's decisions. '
This Editorial Board is beginning to think the media created
the anonymous critics on their own. It's like a sick fervor of
So much of the surrounding press has focused on whether
Miller was sincere that we've lost sight of why the grand jury
wanted her to testify in the first place.
The real meat of this case is that some government officials
connived to ruin a woman's career, and .possibly put her in
mortal danger, because they couldn't take the heat from her
What kind of government is that? And why is it so scared of
criticism? Only the guilty try to stifle the opposition.
With the way this case is going, we're beginning to believe
the Bush administration has succeeded' in just.that. We've all
been sidetracked from the serious criticism this case may shine
on the government.
And why isn't the media more focused on Novak?
The Editorial Board supports source confidentiality, but we
never know how we'll act when faced with such an ultimatum.
Most journalists would probably have called Libby after he
signed the release instead of patiently waiting for him to come
But we shouldn't harp too much on Miller's actions.
It's over; she testified. Let's focus on how this case will end.

former hurt and came after "you;" the latter was friendly
and followed "my." The word was given to me, in a sense,
but it's not mine to use freely.
You see, I'm not black. The word doesn't have the same
history for me. My hurt was not the same hurt a black
person can feel.
Some black people, and others, deplore all use of the
word. Others set it to beats, rhyme it creatively and use it
in funny and insightful ways.
When a reporter asked Muhammad Ali how it felt to be
such a prominent figure, he said, "Did you just call me a

Using any word without appreciating its history
weakens your message. I assume Marlette's cracker crack
refers to what the Gainesville Sun called "a dearth of black

A fair criticism, but Machen did not seek that situation,
and amid complex challenges, he is working for diver-
sity and asking essential questions like why hundreds
of minority students who meet UF admissions standards
choose community college.
Lately, I have fewer black and poor students which
sucks because our system blocks them somewhere be-

that system, am I also guilty? What do you call a brown
cracker? A Triscuit?
Sometimes, systemic flaws conspire to keep people
out of classrooms and Cabinets. Our response must
be to open pathways through those barriers, which is ex-
actly what Machen seeks with initiatives like the Florida
Cracker isn't a precise or useful criticism when the
challenge is this complex.
We share a common challenge: to tunnel through bar-

other through. Instead of name-calling, we must look for
the shafts of light and dig with all our might.

Students should be respectful during Pledge of Allegiance
TA dhine I was watching Chris Leak
throw a pass near the end zone
V during the Tennessee game, I was
shocked that the very same crowd who could
not be respectful during the national anthem
could get quiet enough to hear a pin drop as
the ball soared through the air to the intended
receiver for a possible touchdown.
Although many people look up to UF foot-
ball players as "heroes," the real heroes are the
ones who are willing to pay the ultimate price
for our freedom. The real heroes are not only
the ones who are currently deployed but all
those who have served in the past to make our
country what it is today.
The last line of our alma mater does not
refer to football players as "the brave," but the
last line of our national anthem recognizes the
true heroes who make us call this soil home.
I recently had a conversation with a friend
about this situation and the lack of respect be-
ing paid by our fellow students before football
games. Her response was that there are few
students who have had a loved one risk his or
her life to serve our country, so they do riot un-
derstand the significance of the words in our
Pledge of Allegiance and the national anthem.
My response: Ignorance is not an excuse.
Moreso if you have not had loved ones serve
our country, consider yourself very blessed
that you have not had
to worry about their
safety while they are
stationed in countries
such as Iraq.
Can you imagine your brother, boyfriend,
cousin, fiance or best friend being sent over to
Iraq in a few months? Take a moment to seri-
ously consider the thought.
This weekend, my fiance will be in town
for Gator Growl and the Homecoming game.
Not only is he a UF alumnus, but he also is a
soldier being deployed to Iraq in February.
I want him to know that my fellow students
are proud that he is willing to serve our coun-
try. This can be done by simply being respect-
ful as we honor our country during the Pledge
of Allegiance and our national anthem.
He will not be dressed in one of his uni-
forms, so you will only be able to recognize
him as another Gators fan. For all you know,
he could be standing right behind you at one
of those events this weekend.
As a Gators fan, a proud American and a
soon-to-be Army wife, I am asking you, the
student body of UF, to stand up, take off your
hats, put your hands over your hearts and be
proud to be Americans.

I'm a Ph.D. student and have received two degrees from UF.
As such, I can honestly testify that I have spent more time in the
UF student section than the vast majority of fans past or pres-
ent. I too was in attendance at the UF-Alabama game this past
weekend. Actually, I spent the weekend in Tuscaloosa.
I was sitting in the front of the UF student section for the
game, and I saw nothing of the Gators reaction to Prothro's
broken leg that Tiff Schwarz described. I did not see any Gator
chomps and did not hear any jeering.
Will I vouch for the behavior of every Gators fan at the
game? Absolutely not. UF has its bad apples. But so does

Schwarz referred to flipped off the UF student section.
My favorite part of the weekend was my exit from Bryant-
Denny Stadium. The trip down the long corkscrew wasn't too
bad. I received a few comments here and there something to
be expected when you just got your tail kicked 31-3.
However, I was quite angered by the several dozen fans who
decided to assault me and my friends with pom-poms and fists
as we walked out the gate, accompanied by, "[Expletive] you,
you no-good, filthy, white trash from Florida!"
And yes, that is an exact quote.
Since we were outnumbered several hundred to six, we

I had about a dozen or so older fans welcome me to Tuscaloosa,
and we talked football. Upon leaving the stadium we had sev-
eralAlabama fans apologize for their "bad apples." Most of the
treatment in the bars afterward was respectful and courteous.
I'd like to graciously thank the people of Tuscaloosa for that.
Nevertheless, I challenge the title of Monday's letter. I'm
a Gators fan, and as such I feel that I have a responsibility to
represent my university in a dignified manner. All fans should
strive to do the same.

T-LIUR6PAY NI12T LIVL
n a typical Thursday
night, UF sociology major
Chris Cope is more con-
cerned with controlling his nausea
than cracking jokes.
But as soon as the house lights
dim and the spotlights illuminate
center stage, adrenaline takes over
and the pre-gig jitters subside.
In a matter of minutes, Cope
has the packed audience of com-
edy club-goers bent over, reeling
from side-splitting laughter.
For Cope, it's all in a night's work
as house emcee of Thursday Night
Live at Coconuts Comedy Club,
7417 W Newberry Road.
For the best and sometimes
the worst in raw comedic talent,
student comics and comedy club-
goers alike look no further than
Gainesville's local comedy hot spot.
The club's open-mic night, ap-
propriately dubbed "Thursday
Night Live," caters to the college
crowd with tongue-in-cheek stand-
up comedy acts beginning at 9 p.m.
Coconuts joins comedy spots like
The Tampa Improv and Miami's
Imprpv Comedy Club and Dinner
Theatre as well as The Comedy
Zone in Ocala to make up part of
Florida's comedy circuit.
Cope, a veteran of the Florida
amateur circuit, lauds Coconuts as
one of the best, if not the premier
amateur show in Florida.
"I've been to a lot of the clubs in
Florida, but in my opinion, Coconuts

is one of the best," Cope said.
After several years of bringing
stand-up to the Gainesville area, the
comedy scene at Coconuts contin-
ues to evolve.
With each new school semester,
the dub goes through a new cycle of
talent, which keeps the acts innova-
tive, Cope said.
Student comic and political
science major Matt James became
interested in stand-up comedy
while taking the improvisation and
social/political issues class offered
by the UF School of Theatre and

mentals of improvisation with an
emphasis on spot improvisational
"Stand-up appeals to students
because it is an artistic outlet for kids
who want to express themselves,"
UF economics major Raju Vyas
performs stand-up not only for
the challenge but for the intangible
"Making people laugh can be the
most amazing feeling in the world,"
Vyas said. "If you bomb out there, it
can also be the worst feeling."
Vyas noted that the Gainesville
comedy scene is unique because
comics are invited to attend a work-
shop at Coconuts every Sunday to
brainstorm jokes and perform ma-
terial for other comedians.
The workshop helps new comics
iron out kinks in their routines as
well as gain valuable constructive
Ultimately, Vyas said he feels it
takes a certain kind of person to per-.
form in the high pressure and highly
critical stand-up atmosphere.
"If you're passionate, confident
and energetic, you will do well,"
Cope agreed that although all-
types of comedians are given a
shot at performing for a live crowd,
true comedians have innate talent.
"In order to be a good stand-up
comic, comedy has to be in your
blood," Cope said.
While comics sweat it out under
the bright stage lights, club patrons
enjoy laughs from small caf6-style
tables with candlelit centerpieces
that give Coconuts a big-city club
ambiance all within Gainesville

Quest for best barbecue leaves mouths watering

Whether you're tailgating hours
before kickoff or watching the game
from your couch, barbecue is the
staple ingredient of Saturday foot-
ball games, and Gainesville serves
up the best.
To pickthebest localbarbecueres-

culinary greats: David's Real Pit
BBQ, Sonny's Real Pit Bar-BQ and

restaurants and gathered a group of

The drive to Newberry's
Backyard Bar-BQ was about 10 min-

take their orders.

I tried to come up with a list of Homecoming
specials. There are none. Local businesses are a
bit short on discounted Gators spirit this year.

along University Avenue. Consider this the

Avoid John, find Juan
Everybody needs a sex buddy
The John Butler Trio
Sunrise Over Sea
Having never heard
the John Butler Trio prior to review-
ing this album, I had no idea what to
Needless to say, it was a surprise
when the twang of a country guitar
was followed by some horrific attempt
at rapping. It wasn't a good surprise
either. As dreadful as this opening
was, it got no better; being followed
by a long and pointless when-will-it-
end guitar solo.
Fortunately' for the John Butler
Trio, nothing on the album sinks as
low as the nadir that is its first track.
That isn't to say we're talking about a
good record here it's far from that.
The rap goes out the window and is
replaced by some nondescript croon-
ing from Butler, who sounds like a
blander version of Incubus' Brandon
Musically, the country influences
and unwelcome solos remain and are
joined on other tracks by some over-
wrought strings. Lyrically, it regularly
wades into melodramatic and moral-
There is little to recommend in this
album. It lacks originality, sincerity or
anything distinctive. The only bright
spot is "Damned to Hell," a stripped-
down, lo-fi ramble which is a welcome
change from the other bloated and
overproduced tracks. Avoid.
The Juan Maclean
Less Than Human
-- The explosion of dance-
punks LCD Soundsystem
onto an unsuspecting public last year
was bound to generate interest in
The question is, is its DFA Records
stablemate The Juan Maclean worthy
of such attention?
The answer is both yes and no. ,
There's nothing here quite as refresh-
ing and catchy as the ubiquitous
"Daft Punk is Playing at My House,"
although the third track, "Give Me
Every Little Thing," comes close.
There are, however, nine tracks
fusing electro, Detroit techno, house,
disco and funk to great effect.
But while these are most definitely
songs you can dance to, there are
enough chilled-out moments par-
ticularly "In the Afternoon," whose
opening is reminiscent of Air to
make it suitable for home listening.
In fact, maybe The Juan Maclean.
would have done well to let the bass
loose on a couple of tracks and pro-
duce some real floor-filling anthems.
Nevertheless, this is a consistently
good record. Those interested in dip-
ping their toes into dance music, but
embarrassed about not knowing DJ
Sneak from DJ Spooky, should check
out "Less Than Human."
At some point in his or her life, ev-
eryone should have a sex buddy.
The simple concept of two people
mutually using each other for sex is under-
A sex buddy can lend comfort and re-
lease in times when actual dating prospects
are scarce. He can be used as a teacher,
helping you learn What works well for you
and what doesn't. And he provides a safer
alternative to hooking up with several dif-
I had one buddy when I was younger.
He was the second guy
I had slept with, and in ,m
ity, I used him as an edu- .
After the mediocrity
of my first time, I enlisted the help of some-
one I was reasonably attracted to but not
interested in for a bit of consistent practice.
At first he didn't realize exactly what our
relationship was. He thought we would
end up dating, which didn't interest me.
* Within a few practice sessions, I had
figured things out and so had he. Once we
had an agreement, we had a nice relation-
Therein lies the problem with the buddy
system. Both people have to agree on what
the relationship will be. Confusion can
quickly lead to an awkward situation.
Last year, a friend of mine thought he
was dating this guy. Happily oblivious,
he tried several times to introduce me to
his new boyfriend, but the guy consis-
tently blew off any kind of social outing.
However, they would still get together for
Eventually, my friend realized he was
being used and quickly ended the relation-
ship. Unfortunately for him, when you
think you have a boyfriend, a sex buddy
just won't do.
When both parties agree on the sex-only
terms of the relationship, typically every-
one ends up pretty well-satisfied.
The most successful sex-buddy stories
among my friends have
stemmed from similar
Mr. Lube situations. They date

don't click, but the
sexual chemistry does: So after breaking
up, they continue to hook up and a bud-
ding sex-buddy relationship forms.
This method can be dangerous ground,
as some friends explained. After flirting
with an ex for a bit, a lady friend of mine
decided they should buddy up. After get-
ting together once, she remembered all
the reasons they had broken up in the first
place. Instead of a buddy, she found a mo-
ment of weakness turned into regret. And I
was there to listen and console.
In the end, the key to any successful sex-
buddy relationship might just be a friend
without benefits to listen to your com-
plaints rather than a friend with benefits
who's on the same page.

There is also a scene where Karin and Johan are

Markus Manson has been run-
ning his entire life.
Now, he's tired of it.
They're called "gassers."
Whenever a running back fum-
bles, he must sprint from sideline
to sideline a variable amount of
times. Manson remembers run-
ning four to six per practice earlier
in the season.
"They make me run gassers for
fumbling," Manson explained. "I
don't like doing that."
The running back who's speed
generated so much buzz as he
served on the scout team last year
has continued to use his legs more.

The good news for the
Gators is that Portis' passing
has improved somewhat.
"He's better now than he's
ever been, but he's still not a

who added that Portis will

CRAWLING OUT OF THE GATES:
UF may want to kickoff to
start the game Saturday.
The Gators have been anemic
on opening drives this season.
In their four games, not count-
ing. Tennessee, UF's opening
drives have resulted in three
punts and a blocked punt.
"Awful," Meyer described
it. "I think the ideal one was
against Tennessee when we
kicked off, played good de-
fense, returned a punt and
two plays later we're down
to- the 20. I'm very concerned
about [opening drives]."

Defense readies for AII-SEC RB
* UF ASSISTANT COACHED
MSU RUNNING BACK LAST
By FARZAD SAFI
Alligator Staff Writer
Jerious Norwood won't be taking
anyone by surprise this year.
Last season, the Mississippi
State running back seemingly came
out of nowhere to lead the Bulldogs
to an upset of UF.
While former Gators running
back Ciatrick Fason put up -a- 16-
carry, 143-yard performance, those
numbers paled in comparison to
Norwood's 174-yard game, which
included a game-winning 37-yard
"Jerious Norwood surprised us
last year," defensive end Jeremy
Mincey said. "The coaches told us
about him, but since nobody knew
his name we really didn't take him
This season, everyone in the
Southeastern Conference knows
the First Team All-SEC running
back by name.
Last season, linebacker Brandon
Siler could only watch from the
sideline as the speedy 6-foot, 204-
pound back shredded the Gators
play after play.
"He is a pretty shifty, pretty
good running back," Siler said.
"We have got to get him down if
we want to win this weekend."
Just one of many interesting sub-
plots to UF's homecoming game is
whether the Gators defense will be
able to stop Norwood, after allow-
ing Alabama's Kenneth Darby to
run for 101 yards last week.
But perhaps, the most interest-
ing subplot of all is UF running
backs coach Stan Drayton, an assis-
tant at Mississippi State last season,
facing his former pupil.
"Jerious Norwood surprised
us last year. The coaches
told us about him, but since
nobody knew his name we
really didn't take him seri-
UF defensive end
If anyone knows how dangerous
Norwood can be, it is Drayton.
"Jerious is a game breaker,
there's no question about it,"
Drayton said. "He changes the
tempo of the game, and when he
steps on the field, the speed of the
entire game changes."
The Gators' front seven did a
decent job containing Tennessee's
Gerald Riggs Jr.
But UF's run-stoppers had a
tougher time with the quicker
Norwood is a similarly speedy
back, clocking in at 4.47 seconds
in the 40-yard dash, but he also has
the ability to shed defenders in the
"Sure, Jerious might be a little
skinny," Drayton said. "He looks
a lot like Markus Manson at about
"He's not a real big kid, but he
is going to hit you with some speed
and make you miss."
Does Drayton have any advice
for stopping his former player?
"The only way to stop him is
to rally," he said. "You play disci-
plined defense, and you cover your
"You just need to make tackles
in the open space."
Drayton revealed that the de-
fense has spent all week practicing
on making open field tackles and
the linebackers, especially, have
worked on gang tackling.
This homecoming weekend
could be 'difficult for Drayton, as
he will be reunited with friends
in Norwood and Bulldogs' coach
"I keep in contact with both
Jerious and Coach Croom,"
Drayton said. "Coach was the only
person who ever took me aside and
showed me the cut-throat nature of
the business, and I'll always appre-
Drayton keeps in contact with
his former star, saying he calls
Norwood about once a week.
"We're very good friends who
will keep in touch for the rest of
our lives," Drayton said.

Gators offensive line struggles with pass protection
* INJURIES, LACK OF CHEMISTRY
CONTRIBUTE TO GROUP'S WOES.

After taking one step forward against
Kentucky, UF's offensive line took two steps
in the wrong direction in Tuscaloosa. It took
Alabama all of one play to exploit what has
become a thriving point of inconsistency in
the Gators offense.
With quarterback Chris Leak in the shot-.
gun on the first play from scrimmage, Tide
defensive end Mark Anderson broke through
the line and sacked Leak, who fumbled the
ball before it was pounced on by a UF offen-
The sack was the first of four the line
would give up, and by the time the elephant
had stampeded through the trenches, the
Gators ran into the locker room leading the
Southeastern Conference in sacks allowed
with 18. Through just five games, perhaps a
more troubling statistic for the offensive line,
which lost left tackle Jonathan Colon and right
guard Mo Mitchell to graduation, is how it-
gave up only 19 sacks in all of 2004.
"We need to work harder on technique and
get better at how we compete, but there's no
magic to it," offensive line coach John Hevesy
said. "The way we are not protecting Leak and
giving up sacks, it's disgusting right now, and
that has to change."
Hevesy's offensive line at Utah was revered
by Coach Urban Meyer as one of most well-
coached units he had seen. The Utes offensive
line was one of the more athletic groups in the
country, paving the way for Meyer's spread
offense in the Mountain West Conference.
However, Hevesy has struggled to find such
consistency and athleticism because of inju-
"Five guys work together all week in prac-
tice, and then the game comes around and you
lose two of them and that sets everything off
sync," he said. "It's not an excuse, but we have
to learn to compete a little harder and work a

Offensive line left guard : Tavares
Washington and red-
shirt freshman right
guard Jim Tartt, were limited in the Alabama
game with elbow and rib injuries, respectively.
Also, senior center Mike Degory has missed
time at practice this week nursing an MCL
and ankle, but all three are expected to be back
for the Mississippi State game.
While backup guards Drew Miller, a soph-
omore, and Steve Rissler, a junior, seemed to
hold their own against the Crimson Tide, the
lack of chemistry on the interior line has hurt
the running game and pass protection.
"It definitely hurts because of how we have
had to rotate them inside," Hevesy said. ,'It's
like a marriage. You kind of know and expect
how your wife does things. When you're a
left tackle, you expect to know how your left
guard does things."
The Gators' troubles up front raise even
more questions because of how much was in-
vested in their returning leadership through-
out Meyer's spring practices. Four out of five
starting spots on the line belonged to seniors at
the beginning of the year.
Tackles Lance Butler and Randy Hand,
along with Degory and Washington, might
ha\ e to increase their 'leadership with the
Gators facing off against some of the SEC's
most talented defenses.
"I think the big thing is that the mistakes
we are making are simple," Degory said. "It
seems like everything is caving in, but we just
have to come out and prepare more."
Maturity, fumbling hindered playing time
MANSON, from page 21
Running backs coach Stan Drayton believes
Manson is ready to jump-start UF's rushing game.
"He's game-ready; there's no question," Drayton
said. "He's a tempo changer. He gets into the ball
game and the speed of the game changes,"
"I'm going to put him in position this week dur-
ing practice to grab the bull by the horns and just
run with it."
As Manson redshirted last season, the UF side-
line was abuzz with accounts of his explosiveness.
But after a spring of promise, the redshirt freshman
fell to fourth on the Gators depth chart during the
summer. By UF's season-opener against Wyoming,
he watched from the sideline as true freshman
Kestahn Moore lined up at tailback for the Gators
first play from scrimmage.
"I was wondering why I wasn't playing,"
Manson said, "but I couldn't fault anybody but
myself for that."
While his maturity level and understanding of
the offense hindered Manson's playing time, Meyer
said the freshman simply couldn't hang on to the
"In high school, they really didn't teach us how
to hold the ball," Manson said. "It didn't matter, but
up here, they put an emphasis on holding the ball
the way they want."
Trying to break the back's fumbling ways,
coaches drilled Manson on keeping his wrist above
his elbow to lock the ball in place as he ran.
Manson said he has mastered

believes the freshman could be-

"Let's take away a little of

said. "I don't care if you can
