Flu vaccines available
As cold season lurks around

After receiving a shipment
of 10,000 flu vaccines Thursday,
Clinical Health Systems Inc. will
have 100 to 200 vaccinations avail-
able at The Oaks Mall on Saturday
"Influenza is easily spread,
especially among large groups,"
said Jane McGlothlin, an SFCC
registered nurse specialist. "This is
especially true for college students
in classes and living in dorms."
Flu shots will cost $25. CHS
is also offering a limited amount
of pneumonia shots for $35.
Registered nurses will administer
the shots from noon to 4 p.m. both
days in the Macy's-Sears wing of
the mall. McGlothlin said $25 is
a "drop in a bucket" compared to
missing a week or two from work
or school, plus subsequent doctor
visits and prescription costs.
"Because it takes time to build
up antibodies to influenza, it's
important to get the immunization
to get the antibodies up before flu
season kicks in," McGlothlin said.
The Student Health Care Center
at UF will administer the vaccine
and the FluMist nasal spray start-
ing Oct. 17 for high-risk students
and faculty. All other UF students

Starbucks still option at UF library despite objections
By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Driven by rain to the sheltered
front of the Library West construc-
tion site Thursday, several students
protested the proposal of a Starbucks
franchise at the rebuilt library.
Librarians are also resisting the
plan, as their request for a share of
the coffee profits was denied.
"It just seems to symbolize the
nexus of state and business power,"
political science senior and protester
Peter Gruskin said.'
Protesters carried signs read-
ing, "Stop the Machen machine in
Tigert!" and "Libraries are not for

Public records reveal that admin-
istrators have pushed the project de-
spite the head librarian's defiance.
They intend to keep caf6 profits in a
nonlibrary administrative account.
Although the library may un-
willingly give up space for the
Starbucks, all commission from the
store's estimated $1 million in an-
nual revenue will go to UF Business
Services' food service account.
"We just turn [the Starbucks
profits] around and we put them
right back into building new facili-
ties," UF Business Services Director
Caroline iurkhard / Alligator
Thomas Mott persuades UF students to sign a petition to end construction of a Starbucks at Library
West on Thursday.
Jim Morgan said.
UF's commission from all cam-
pus dining is 10.4 percent.
Director of Libraries Dale
Canelas firmly rejects the idea of a
full Starbucks in the library, advocat-
ing a small, Starbucks-serving kiosk
like others on campus.
She said the full-sized shop
would take up valuable study area,
disturb the library atmosphere with
gaudy corporate space and attract
book-eating insects, as it requires
food storage and preparation.
"It's not the Starbucks library. It's
the University of Florida's library,"
she said in an earlier interview.
But UF administrators are plow-
ing ahead with the project.
"Someone still has to instruct
Dale and co. to get going and work
with us," UF Business Services
Director Jim Morgan wrote in an

The e-mails indicate that ad-
ministrators drew up the proposal
intending to show the library that
the Starbucks would not make a

discouraged from seeking a chunk
of the profits.

Miller mentioned "the danger of
offering to share commissions" with

Some students choose home over Homecoming
By JESSICA RIFFEL
As hordes of alumni overtake UF
on Homecoming weekend, many
They would rather celebrate
Homecoming by going home.
"I haven't gone home since I got
here, and it's a three-day weekend,"
freshman Joann Tao said. "I haven't
gone to a football game, so I'm not
very 'Go Gators!' and I didn't really
want to go to Gator Growl, so why
not just go home?"
Tao and her friend, freshman
Valerie Eskenazi, plan to travel to
their homes in Pembroke Pines.
"It sounds fun, but since I'm not
into everything yet, I decided to go
home," Eskenazi said.
Eskenazi said she is homesick,
and Tao said she can't wait to go
"I'm counting the. days and the
hours," she said.
For students who live out of
state, the three-day weekend pro-

"I'll miss [Homecoming], but it'll
be the first time I go home, so it'll
be nice," Savage said. "Anyways, I.
still have three, if not more, years to
come and see it."
"Even though I'm definitely
a Gator at heart, I don't
need to blatantly show it."
It's not just freshmen leaving
town. Many other students are tak-
ing advantage of the long weekend.
mUF student Anastasia Bower went
to Gator Growl last year and had fun,
but this year.she will spend the week-
end with a friend in Orlando.
She said she'd rather go to theme
parks with her friend.
"It didn't seem important to stay
this year even though it was fun last
year," Bower said.
Some students say they will miss
the Homecoming festivities but not
enough to justify staying in town.
Sophomore Lyndsey Webb plans"
to go home to Daytona to spend
time with her dad before he leaves
for his job in Tennessee despite hav-
ing season tickets.

Wolf plans to -stay in town
but doesn't plan to participate in
Homecoming unless his friends do.
"Even though I'm definitely a
Gator at heart, I 'don't need to bla-

But some.students who avoided
Homecoming in past years decided
to give it a try this year.

UF staff workday reduced to half today; others get holiday
* STUDENTS, FACULTY, SFCC, LOCAL
SCHOOLS HAVE THE DAY OFF.
By LYNDSEY LEWIS
While the three-day Homecoming week-
end is sacred to UF students, many university
staff members aren't part of the tradition.
Despite today being an annual holiday for
both students and faculty, many staff members
will work a half-day concluding at 1 p.m.
But until recently, staff members weren't
given any time off at all the Friday before
Homecoming, officials said.
"Prior to last year, there actually wasn't any
holiday," said Kyle Cavanaugh, vice president
for human resources. "I think [the half-day]
is in recognition that there is a lot of activity,
but a lot of people are involved in leaving for
Staff members at SFCC have the day off.
"There are just many, many (Homecoming)
activities in which we are involved," said
Larry Keen, assistant to -the president of
SFCC. "We've been off for UF Homecoming
for at least 20 years," adding that the college's
Board of Trustees, which is separate from the
body that, governs
UF UF, decided to grant
Administration all of the SFCC
community an an-
nual holiday for UF's
Some. at UF feel it's unfair to make staff
members work, when a majority of other
Gainesville school workers have the day off.
. Evelyn Butler, executive secretary for
the dean of the College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences, said having to work the Friday be-
fore Homecoming weekend creates challenges
for some staff members.
"Ifs hard on people because they have
small children," she said. "Their children want
to go to the parade."
Some staff members,' however, are just
grateful to receive any time at all off work.

Halloween Horror Nights takes on fairy-tale fears
By EVA KIS
Alligator Staff Writer
ORLANDO Most people
don't interact with fear, lest they
become consumed by it. But TJ
Mannarino wants you to get as close
as you dare.
As the director of art design for
Universal Studios Halloween Horror
Nights XV, Mannarino and his team
of about 40 designers spent months
turning Islands of Adventure into
anything but an inviting place.
However, building a house
without a foundation, as Mannarino
admitted the theme evolved after
the haunts were designed, is kind
"No one lives happily ever
after," this year's catchline, was
a genius concept instead of a.
moralistic ending that tritely glori-
fies some- pseudo-hero, the fairy
tales everyone grows up with have
been hijacked by the things under
the bed and -locked away in castle
It would've been enough to re-
deem the genre from the train wreck
that was "The Brothers Grimm."
Instead, park entrants are greeted
by a bloodletting ritual as scowling
bikers wielding chainsaws demand
respect for their Queen, contradict-
ing what Mannarino said of his
team's objective: "You need to be
afraid of something, but you need to
know what it is first."
So where is the demonic grand-
mother from the commercials?
The impossibility of telling a
story to screaming people makes the
"plot" largely irrelevant, and Horror
Nights enough terror to prickle even
the most stalwart spine.
Mannarino likened the process
taking place inside the "Body
Collectors" morgue to "much like
somebody canning tomatoes." And
though the Collectors are by any
name the white-faced Gentlemen
from "Buffy the Vampire Slayer,"
there are few things more terrifying
than watching one stand over an op-
erating table pulling out someone's
spine as he smiles at passersby.
roiuger varey / Mligaror zaan
Servants prepare the path for the Queen as she rides past onlookers on her motorcycle at Universal
Studios Halloween Horror Nights XV in Orlando on Saturday.
"Every little detail sells the en-
vironment," Mannarino said. "The
more we keep you in that space, the
more it messes with your mind."
In that aspect, from the hor-
rifying Polaroid collage of smiling
people circled with black marker
on the entrance corkboard, to the
Collector behind the operating table
of an opened cadaver who waits for
a queasy visitor to stick his hand-
ful of human heart in her face, this
house is by far the best-executed.
At the nearby "Skool," complete
with shoe cubbies and kitten-print
wallpaper, demonic children hang
teachers in their own classrooms
and attack the rest of the students
gruesomely with their discipline
tools. The atmosphere could've
done with more nursery rhymes
and tinkling-toy sounds to push
everything to that next step of abject
terror, but evil children possess a
built-in fear factor.
One of the most creative con-
cepts for a haunt wasn't creative at
all. "Where Evil Hides" is built like
an ordinary house, but "once inside,
one faces all of those dark hallways,
passages and doors that open to
exactly what one had hoped they
did not," as the Horror Nights Web
There are no demons performing
satanic rituals, nor flesh-hungry mu-
tants here just long, narrow hall-
ways of open doors, a child quiver-
ing in a bedroom full of stuffed bears
as shadows step out from the walls,
dripping pipes and abandoned
laundry in the basement, and the
evil grandmother with 'her bed of
nails in the attic. The effect is built-
up suspense rather than brief sur-
prise, and it works.
The pitch-black descent through
"Terror Mines," lit only by the scarce
visitor with a flickering miner's hat
in front of you, is pure horror.
"We've -made you an integral
component of the attraction,"
Mannarino said of the "Blair Witch
Mole creatures lurk inside the

alone the mutants that jump out of

Growl ready for tonight
By DAVID COHEN
As if Urban Meyer alone couldn't
sell out the Swamp, producers have
thrown in fireworks and improvisa-
tional comedy to sweeten the pot.
The 80th-annual Gator Growl titled
"Revenge of the Swamp," is set to begin
tonight at 7 at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.
Growl bills itself as the largest student-
run pep rally in the world.
Growl Producer Robert Carmody
said the experience is a must for every
"It brings something you are not go-
ing to get elsewhere," he said. "It's all
Gator related. It gets everyone fired up.
It's such an ensemble."
Two-time Emmy-nominated come-
dian Wayne Brady, who has appeared
on ABC's hit show "Whose Line Is It
Anyway?" is headlining Growl. New
York City funnyman Greg Giraldo,
known for his appearances on Comedy
Central's "Tough Crowd with Colin
Quinn" and NBC's "Late Night with
Conan O'Brien" will be the opening
Carmody said Brady will use topics
taken from audience members to initi-
ate his improvisational antics while his
band plays background music.
"Wayne brings something we've
never seen before," Carmody said.
"It's going to be quite a setup. It's never
been a full improvised set. It's the first
time he's done it in a stadium. It's go-

university to satisfy financial interests.

went around the library," he said.
Miller said student leadership supports the
Starbucks, referring to Student Body President
Joe Goldberg's endorsement of it.

Goldberg said. "I think students enjoy

worked so meticulously to create by
citing the mantra "Keep it moving"
to patrons already moving as fast as
the line allowed.
The" bloodied "scaractors" do
a fine enough job of not inclining
anyone to linger.
Disappointingly, perennial favor-
ite "Bill & Ted's Excellent Halloween
Adventure" doesn't live up to its
past side-splitting glory, though the
morbid pop-culture climate and
box-office bottom-scraping of the
past year could be to blame, too:
Britney had a baby, Johnny Depp
played a creepy candyman, and Fat
Albert wasn't funny the first time.
Not exactly comedy gold.
However, there is still nothing
like a good scare with a side of
comedy to get you in the mood for
the Halloween season and no bet-
ter show in town than Universal
Studios. Sticking to what you
like theme .and ride-wise (which
you'll have to do since it's impos-
sible to see everything even with
an ExpressPass) will guarantee a
successful scream of a night.-

Today should be a day of fanatic excitement, incessant
drinking and Gator spirit.
But the Editorial Board is hoping that one sad factor
doesn't get in the way of our hokey parade and blowout pep
UF President Bernie Machen isn't going to be in the
What? Bernie doesn't want to ride his motorcycle in a blind-
ing orange-and-blue outfit while performing his best Miss
America wave for a crowd of screaming football fans? It's
We are seriously disillusioned.
We'd even be appeased if Machen just sped through the
parade, throwing nonalcoholic beer into the crowd. That way,
he'd be sticking to his anti-alcohol guns while gracing us with a
glimpse of our fearless leader.
But in some way, we almost like him better for his ability to
say no to the pinnacle event of this school's football fanaticism.
He really is an academic.
Or he's just no fun.
So take hold of that Bud, take a bite of that funnel cake and
dive into a huge vat of Gator spirit as we begin this week's edi-
Darts & Laurels
As we make our way to the parade, we sling a being-cruel-
for-the-sake-of-rules-is-just-cruel DART at Homecoming offi-
cials for not allowing Bo Diddley in the parade.
A legendary local musician known for his influence on rock
'n' roll, Diddley appeared in the parade last year and liked it so
much that he scheduled his gigs around this year's event. But
when he got to Gainesville expecting a spot, officials told him
he couldn't be in it.
Why was he shunned? Because honored guests are not
asked back unless they are members of the UF administra-
tion, according to an article in The Gainesville Sun that quoted
Homecoming Chairman Matt Wein.
Wow. Is the parade really that exclusive?
Since they've admitted the winner of the most recent "The
Apprentice," we think they can bend the rules to accommodate
such a respected musician.
Can't Diddley just take Machen's place?
And we have something to say about that slippery Machen.
We shoot a public-records-are-the-religion-of-newspapers-
and-you-must-adhere DART at Machen for possibly hiding
more than he should. Charles Grapski, a UF graduate student
and instructor, sued our president this week for not following
public records laws. Grapski said he asked for records on the
relationship of Florida Blue Key to UF administration and was
told none existed.
We'll wait until the lawsuit is over to pass judgment on this
case, but we've heard before that Machen immediately deletes
his e-mail. And getting public records from UF is always a bit
of a task..
We can understand if Machen has a hard time dealing with
the laws; he used to work in Utah, a state with much more room
for business privacy. But he's been here for two years, and he
has to realize that this is Florida, where snooping is almost a
free-for-all. Don't let all those crazy Republicans fool you.
Before we sink into our barbecue and beer, we'll sling a
final we-give-up-because-you-guys-are-useless DART to the
Student Government Elections Commission, which found
Gator Party Sen. William Perry guilty of violating two election
codes and then told him he had to write a letter of apology.
A letter of apology? This is the power the commission

selection than mere compromise.
Don't get me wrong, the Bush. administration still has
some 'splaining to do. I'm anxious to know why the presi-
dent would refer to someone with no judicial experience as
"the best person I could find."
But I think there's a lot to learn from the unthinking back-
lash from both liberals and conservatives.
For an example, we can look right in our own backyard to
Vox: Voices for Planned Parenthood, which held a protest to
let Bush and his administration know it wouldn't sit by qui-
etly while they appointed "extremely conservative justices to
the Supreme Court."
At the same time, hard-line conservatives are up in arms
because they don't believe Miers is, in fact, a conservative.
Maybe it's just me, but I'm pretty sure it's impossible for
someone to be both extremely conservative and not conser-
vative at all. It follows that one side of this argument must be
wrong or, more likely, both of them are. -
The disturbing part of this, however, isn't that both sides
are jumping at shadows because things possibly might not
go their way it's the idea that things should go their way
in the first place.

In Moderation I've got news for all of the in-
firstname.lastname@example.org credulous masses on the liberal side
of this issue: Supreme Court justices
aren't expected to be politically
and thus morally neutral.
You can't expect an administration to nominate a candi-
date who is going to rule against the administration's collec-
tive moral stances. It wouldn't be noble for an administration
to do so it would be irresponsible.
The truth of the matter is that no one knows where Miers
stands on most issues. This is not a bad thing, as many are
saying since when have we had this crazy rule that the
Supreme Court should only contain justices who have a clear
record of opinions on major issues? But we do need more in-
formation on her beliefs before we can say her appointment
should go through.
The knee-jerk responses clouding the issue are repre-
sented all too well by Hancock's statement that "... there is a
new nominee, so we can't sitby and do nothing. We're taking
a stand, and it won't be ignored."
Unfortunately, that's the message of political unity we're
hearing from all sides of the political spectrum: "We have no

Gator spirit drives students behind Homecoming
By CASSIDY MILLS
Alligator Contributing Writer
Working 18 hours and taking more than
100 phone calls a day while finishing your last
semester at UF may sound impossible.
But for the men behind the world's largest
student-run pep rally, it's all in a day's work.
Rob Carmody, producer of Gator Growl,
and Matthew Wein, general chairman of
Homecoming, have been planning this week's
events for about one year.
From Wein's "Gator Nation" Homecoming
theme to Carmody's "Revenge of the Swamp"
Gator Growl theme, their work can be seen in
most every aspect of this year's festivities.
Though these Gators may wade deeper in
the Swamp than the average student, they're
first to admit it's all for the team.
"My biggest challenge right now is just
wanting everyone to leave with a smile on
their face," Wein said. "I would love for every-
one to leave Gainesville saying, 'I had a great
time at every event.'"
For Wein, Homecoming is not about im-
proving on the celebrations of the past but
carrying on a tradition.
"Homecoming is an institution," he said.
"It's where everyone can come to Gainesville
and just celebrate being Gators."
Wein was involved with the planning of
all the Homecoming events leading up to
Saturday's game including Meet the Coaches,
held Sept. 16 at the Stephen C. O'Connell
Center; Education Celebration, an event held
Sept. 28 to thank faculty for their hard work
throughout the year; and Gator Gallop, a.
two-mile run preceding today's Homecoming
Although Wein oversees the Homecoming
programs, several directors work under him
and are more involved in the specific aspects
of the events.
Wein said being there to help is the most
fulfilling part of the volunteer position.
"The sense of accomplishment on my
directors' faces after their event has been suc-
cessful is nice," he said. "I'm not the type of
person who needs or wants public attention
- I'm happy helping."
After planning and participating in so
many Homecoming events, Wein said the
parade is still his favorite.
"I've been working on it since I was a fresh-
man, and this year I get to ride in it," he said.
"I think that's special."
The event is also special for Carmody, who
is the third member of his family to ride in
UF's Homecoming parade.
Carmody is a. third-generation Gator and
self-described No. 2 Gators fan.
"I would never skip a Florida football
game," he said. "I'm the second man behind
Carmody's love for the Gators is the reason
he became involved with Gator Growl.
"It irks me that kids 'get involved to pad
their resumes," Carmody said. "You can help
the university, other students, and enjoy what
you're doing. I really feel like I'm doing this
for the right reasons."
Even with good intentions, being heavily

Some Gainesville streets may resemble
parking lots today as the UF Homecoming
Parade comes down University Avenue.
"Any of those streets that tie into the parade
route are going to be backed up," Gainesville
Police Department spokesman Art Adkins
said. "Between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., don't plan
around driving near those intersections."
Adkins said the traffic delays will not be an
"We've been doing this for so long now
that when we have a game day or a parade,
we're able to smooth things out quickly,"
Adkins said. "You'll be shocked at how fast
we handle so many people."
Gina Hawkins, apublic-education specialist
for the Gainesville Public Works Department,
said residents and out-of-town guests can
avoid traffic jams and parking nightmares by
using alternate methods of transportation to
get to the parade and Gator Growl.
"Those who are participating in
Homecoming events should use the parking
garage or bus transportation to avoid conges-
tion," Hawkins said. "Car traffic will definitely
be sluggish at best."
Regional Transit System will offer a Friday
shuttle between The Oaks Mall and Ben Hill
Griffin Stadium that will help transport visi-
tors and off-campus students to Gator Growl.
The shuttle will cost $5. It will take patrons
from The Oaks Mall south parking lot to the
stadium between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. and will
return to the mall between 9 p.m. and 11 p.m.

Brady began acting in Orlando
when he was 16 years old and used
improvisation as a tool to hone his
He soon discovered he had a
natural ability to improvise, which
he attributes to his good imagina-
tion as a child.
"Not to sound pitiful, but I used
to play by myself a lot," he said.
He would record "soundtracks"
for the little movies he made with
his toys, all voiced by him.
When he first began doing im-
provisational comedy on the stage,
Brady admitted that he "sucked a
But with performances up to six
times a week, he eventually became
comfortable with himself.
"No one knows what's com-
ing next, and that's the best
kind of show."
"It just clicked," he said.
Nowadays, Brady is using his
creativity to write and produce a
cartoon for Disney.
He also recently wrapped up
"I'mPerfect," his second movie of
the year. "Crossover," a basketball
movie which features Brady, will
be released in February. Brady also
played the character of D.J. Johnny
Feelgood in "Roll Bounce," which
is currently in theaters.
He said he hopes that through
his work, people will think of
him as they do comedians such
as Robin Williams and Bill Cosby,
both of whom performed at Growl
in years past.
"They were such great actors
in that they were funny, but they
make you feel something else as
well," Brady said. "I think that's
what I would like to be remem-
bered for decades from now that
he was funny, but he was real."
Brady said he feels honored to
be asked to perform for Growl, as
he knows that "a lot of great peo-
ple" performed before him.
He confessed that he had
never heard of the event while
living in Orlando because he was
extremely focused on his acting
career but has since learned of its

As for the content of his perfor-

contain double entendres, sexual
references and cultural references,
although it's hard to be certain with
an improve performance.
"No one knows what's coming
next, and that's the best kind of
show," he said.
One thing you can expect, how-
ever, is that Brady will not use pro-
fanity on stage.
The show is funny and has adult
humor, but it's never dirty, he said.

'Drunken inspiration' births Talking Walls float
chicken wire, flour
By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Some great ideas come .in dreams; some -
are conceived through rigorous meditation
*and prayer. Others are drunkenly scribbled
on a napkin at The Swamp Restaurant.
So was born the idea for Talking Walls
framing shop's Homecoming float.
"It was a drunken inspiration," employee
Jeff Resnik said.
Resnik's fellow employee and float mae-
stro Damon Garrett expressed disappoint-
ment that the Homecoming floats will not
"I'm convinced our float's going to blow
everybody else's away," he said.
Talking Walls' float exhibits a giant alliga-
tor busting out of its egg, holding a stuffed
Mississippi Bulldog in its mouth.
The egg sits amid swamp foliage scav-
enged tree moss while a fog machine
pumps out swamp gas.
A stuffed toy alligator's growl to pro-.
vides the big gator's voice, his battle cry
hooked up to an amplifier.
The whole thing is surrounded by a giant
frame and adorned with the slogan, "Talking
Walls in a Gator frame of mind."

long and 8 feet wide.
"It's probably a few hundred pounds,
easily," Talking Walls owner Bill Vasquez
Like a Russian matryoshka doll, the float
has many layers.
At the core of the egg is a wooden box
surrounded by chicken wire with newspa-
pers, beer cases and other household junk
stuffed inside. Finally, a layer of painted
papier-mach6 forms the eggshell.
Talking Walls' float budget included six
5-pound flour bags for papier-mache, two
rolls of chicken wire, two cans of paint, eight
spray-paint canisters and piles of newspa-
The alligator's head is made of spray-
on insulation foam, which expanded into
gnarly gator hide.
It also "burned like hell" when Garrett
got it all over his hands, arms and face.
He found out too late that the foam can
only be medically removed from human
skin. So he went to the hospital, where
he said staff sanded his flesh with steel
"They had to leave some on because I
couldn't take it," he said. "I was crying like
a little girl."
For the past two weeks,, fhe crew has
toiled at the float every night after work and
for two full weekends, sustained by Five
Star Pizza and Miller Lite.
Garrett said his girlfriend is not happy he
has spent his nights with the float.
"Why are you working on that float?" he
mimicked. "Nobody cares about the float."
His co-workers describe Garrett as an
impassioned float builder.
"Damon is an artist of papier-mach6,"
Resnik added: "Damon Wvas all about
making it bigger. He's always about bigger,
Garrett said he originally envisioned an
alligator whose jaws worked robotically, but
he said it proved too difficult.
"None of us were engineers," he said.

About 20 volunteers have come

Homecoming lacks king due to cost, no demand

Alligator Contributing Writer
The Homecoming queen walks
across the stage, receives the sash,
the diamond necklace and the rec-
But there will be no Homecoming
hunk for the queen to share her spot-
light with tonight at Gator Growl.
The Homecoming Scholarship
.Pageant that took place Sept. 19 is
part of a long-standing tradition,
dating from 1952, of choosing a
Homecoming queen. The winner
will be announced at Growl.
There has been no demand for a
Homecoming king, said members
of Florida Blue Key, the sponsor of
Gator Growl. But some students
think there should be one.
"Guys don't appear to feel the
same pressure that girls do to look
and act a certain way," political sci-
ence senior Elizabeth Summers said.
"This is just another example of the
way that girls are dehumanized."
Due to the time, publicity and
money it takes to host a major pag-
eant, the thought of electing a king
was the last thing on the minds of
FBK members. -
Fundraising for the girls' pageant
alone, which had a record 31 contes-
tant_ this year, requires about two
months of work by the contestants.
The pageant is not FBK-exclusive
but camptiswide, which makes
it more expensive, FBK President
Brian Roof said.
"We are a not-for-profit organiza-
tion that doesn't have the financial
resources to pay for everything,"
Roof said. "That is why the girls
have to raise a lot of money."
"You need the demand

are also sponsored by an organiza-.

can afford to pay, Roof said.
With enough backing, there
would be a male pageant, he said.
"You need the demand of people
that want to be in it and also people
to watch," he said.
The importance of a balanced
program outweighs how much it
costs to host the pageant, she said.

Despite the expenses, FBK would
be willing host a Homecoming king

Greeks shun courting for
New system includes all 23 IFC chapters
By JENNIFER FREIHOFER
Each year during Homecoming, orange-
and blue-dad students and alumni come
together for a weekend of traditions. But this
year, in the midst of the usual parades, pep ral-
lies and football games, the Greeks are chang-
ing their tradition.
The Interfraternity and Panhellenic coun-
cils have adopted a new bidding system to pair
fraternities and sororities for Homecoming in
place of the traditional courting process.
Because there are 23 fraternities and only
16 sororities, some fraternities were left un-
paired each year.
"We found that year after year, some frater-
nities weren't doing anything," Iriterfraternity
Council President John Dicks said. "What we
wanted to do was address that issue and also
address the issue of it costing the fraternities
way too much money for courting."
. Under the new system, each fraternity sub-
mits one invitation to a sorority, which then
votes to decide if it wants to be paired with
the fraternity. If it votes not to, it can receive
another invitation in the second round.
Despite their best efforts, some fraternities
still walked away empty-handed and with
empty-pockets. Dicks said the bidding process
will eliminate that problem.
"We asked all of the fraternity and soror-
ity pairs to essentially pick up one of those
independent fraternities for one function, one
night, during the week," he said.
Fraternity and sorority members have
generally been receptive to the new
Greek system, he said.
Life Richard Adams, a member of
Delta Upsilon Fraternity, said he
prefers the new bidding process.
"The courting thing is such a huge hassle
for the guys that any system has to be better,"
Dicks estimated that fraternities spent
up to $8,000 on courting in previous years.
Fraternities often drove sorority members
to class, took entire sororities out to dinner,
rented limousines for them and presented
them with gifts.
There will also be events for the entire
Greek community, including an all-Greek
barbecue, a dry function with a band and an
ice cream event Wednesday. Fraternities and
sororities also are encouraged to mnake floats
and participate in the Homecoming parade.
"I think we're going to see a heightened
emphasis on some of the more traditional
Greek values and participation on a commu-
nity-wide level," Dicks said. "We're going to
see us get back in touch with the more tradi-
tional values of being Greek at the University

Homecoming tradition dates to 1916 bonfire, parade
By ANGELA CASTELLANOS
Alligator Contributing Writer
If it hadn't been for the UF Homecoming
tradition and spirit, 1979 alumna Dean
Maguire would have never, become Miss
Florida in 1981.
"My senior year, I was nominated for
Homecoming queen, and I didn't make it to
the finals," Maguire said. "I was pretty disap-
pointed, but the loss motivated me to enter
one more pageant. In 1981, I was crowned
Maguire looks back at her 1979 UF
Homecoming experience with a smile.
"Homecoming is sort of a magical, spirited
time," Maguire said. "It always has been."
UF Homecoming, now a more than 80-
year-old tradition, began, as a celebration of
school spirit and still carries that sentiment
The first attempt to hold a Homecoming
for UF graduates was in 1915 with little suc-
cess. The following year, festivities began the
night before the game with a bonfire and a
parade, according to the University Archives
"Homecoming started out as a 'Dad's
Day' event back when Florida was an
all-boys school," Nicole Trueblood,
Homecoming 2005 public relations direc-
tor said. "It was scheduled around football
gamedays because it was just a good atmo-
sphere and time to get together."
Florida Blue Key, a private leadership
honorary founded at UF, has organized and
sponsored Homecoming since 1924.
Today, Homecoming is just one of the
many things FBK sponsors, Trueblood said.
"Homecoming is all student-run, stu-
dent-organized," Trueblood said. "Anyone
who wants to be a part of it can apply."
Each April, students can apply for one
of more than 30 Homecoming director po-
sitions. These students spend the summer
making phone calls, finding sponsors and
planning the events.
Soulfest, .a multicultural showcase that
began just six years ago, is one of the ways
the Homecoming staff tries to enhance old
traditions to keep up with the university's
"Homecoming is sort of a magical,
spirited time. It always has been."
Gator Growl, one of the 10 Homecoming
events, continues to be a climax.
Before the conception of Growl, fresh-
men would bring their body weight
in wood to a bonfire, according to the
University Archives Web site. From 1925 to
1932, students held a pep rally, then moved
outdoors for the bonfire and fireworks. The
rally was moved to the new football sta-
dium in 1932 and became Growl.
Approximately 500 student volunteers are
involved in the production, according to the
official Growl Web site.
The SunTrust Gator Gallop preceding
the Homecoming Parade is yet another
Homecoming tradition. History professor
Steven Noll has been in Gainesville since
1974 and ran in the Gator Gallop seven
or eight times in the late '70s to mid-'80s,
watching the event grow.
Noll said a highlight was watching one
of his own students participate in the two-
"I was teaching both at UF and special
education with the Alachua County Public
Schools at the time, and one of my public
school students ran in the Gallop," Noll
said. "He was mentally handicapped, deaf
and had cerebral palsy, yet he ran. That was
neat to see."
All the money raised through events like
Gator Gallop stays in the budget to help
fund the next year's Homecoming.

Clubs tighten security
BY JESSICA DEL VALLE
Alligator Contributing Writer
With a population surge of about
50;000 Gainesville visitors because of
Homecoming, local clubs are increas-
ing their security.
"We will be hiring about five more
bouncers and increasing our staff by
15 percent overall," said Jason Mitow,
manager of Rue Bar and Rehab (for-
merly Simons) nightclubs.
Club owners and managers will be
working with the Gainesville Police
Department to ensure maximum secu-
rity this weekend.
Although this is a yearly event,
both areas of security have collabora-
tive meetings three times a year to en-
sure everyone is aware of the proper
/techniques and precautions to take
when dealing with fights and distur-
bances, Mitow said.
GPD will increase its security forces
by four more officers for the down-
town club area, spokesman Keith
GPD will also be working with
Gainesville Fire Rescue to keep clubs
from exceeding full capacity, he said.
"One thing that will not be toler-
ated this weekend is fights," Kameg
said. "If you get into a fight, you are
going to jail."
Traditionally, GPD hasn't had
many problems associated with
Homecoming weekend, Kameg said.
"If you get into a fight, you are
going to jail."

"We are strict every night," said
Rainier Viego, who works club secu-
rity at Rue Bar. "And we treat Gator
Growl weekend like any other night."
While GPD will crack down on any-
one caught with an open container, it
will not send violators from outside of
Florida to jail.
This rule applies to all misdemean-
ors, not just open container violations.

Police warn of alcohol policies for tailgaters, game
By JENNIFER PFAFF and
Fans of UF football rivals
may not always be welcomed in
Gainesville with open arms, but
this weekend marks the first time
tailga,ters will be treated as equals.
Those coming to town for
Saturday's game will be among
the first to experience the recent
changes made to Gainesville's
open-container law, should they
choose to break it.
The roughly 20-year-old policy,
which prohibited individuals
from carrying open containers of
alcohol, resulted in different con-
sequences for lawbreakers based
on their residency.
Gainesville residents received a
notice to appear in court, or a cita-
tion; visitors were sent to jail.
But a recent alteration lessened
the punishment for visitors to that
of locals based on officers' discre-
"The ordinance has not
changed," said Keith Kameg,
Gainesville Police spokesman.
"The enforcement is still the same.
The only difference is that the of-
ficer has latitude now to give a
notice to appear instead of sending
the visitor straight to jail."
Amy Hanna, a UF junior, was
glad the law was lifted for visi-
"A lot of the Gainesville people,
the people that live here, know
about [the policy], so it's OK,"
A sea of cars overcrowds the lawn on the north side of Broward Hall during a football game.
Hanna said. "But I think when
they were arresting, Tennessee
people that's not fair because they
don't know about it, and that's not
Out-of-state visitors will be the
only ones affected by the recent
policy changes. All other tailgat-
ing policies are still in effect and
"Public drunkenness and
violence are not tolerated and can
result in arrest or notice to appear,"
said Joe Sharkey, University Police
spokesman. "Open containers of
alcohol are never allowed on the
sidewalks or roadways of campus
and can result in arrest."
Kameg cited "underage drink-
ing, open containers and issues
of disorderly conduct" as factors
GPD looks for among tailgaters.
Frequent tailgater Becky Leary,
a UF sophomore, feels enforcement
of container laws is uncalled for.
"I think that it is unreasonable
for. [police] to try and enforce
drinking laws on game days with
so many people in the town,"
"What they should be worried
about is drinking and driving. I
think that they should focus on
having DUI tests rather than wor-
rying if someone is drinking a beer
with a bunch of friends."
Tailgating policies on campus
will not be altered or enforced any
stronger this weekend than usual,
despite this Saturday's game
against Mississippi State being
"This season has been very
laid back, and we expect the
same for this weekend because
Homecoming is usually not the
biggest rival nor the biggest
game," Kameg said.
Sharkey said UPD will not
interfere with tailgating activities
unless an individual notifies an of-
ficer that a problem has arisen..
"Tailgating is a UF tradition,"
he said. "Many alumni return
home this weekend, .and we
wish them the very best and that
they enjoy their celebrations.
Remember, with celebrating
Kameg said his- officers antici-
pate this as one of the three busiest
weekends, though last year saw
only one ejection and no arrests.
"We are prepared to handle any
problems," he said.
Kameg and Sharkey predict that
this year's Homecoming weekend
will be no different in crime than
"Remember to have a good
time, but just do it responsibly,"
Sharkey said. "If we catch you
with alcohol inside of the stadium,
you will be arrested."
Open containers of alcohol on
public streets and sidewalks are
also a violation and can result in
arrest and/or referral to Student
UPD also will enforce laws per-

Homecoming one of year's best business weekends
t ~.S...... -1 ,--
By JESSICA RIFFEL
Homecoming crowds boost
business in Gainesville, creating
one of the best weekends of the
year for local restaurants and ho-
tels, an official said.

Around there will be a

Commerce research and market-
University Avenue's close prox-
imity to the Homecoming activities
will increase customer traffic for the
restaurants along the road.
"It was one of our best weekends
last year," Momo's Pizza general
manager Chris Holahan said. "This
year, Tennessee and FSU (football
game weekend business) will be
hard to beat, but we still expect a
Holahan said they will have ex-
tra employees scheduled to prepare
for the crowds.
Also, many restaurants are
opening at 9 or 10 a.m. Saturday, in-
stead of the usual 11 a.m., because
of the 12:30 p.m. kickoff.
The Swamp Restaurant is open-
ing early today for the parade, as
well as Saturday for the game.
"We always have a great
Homecoming crowd," manager
Christy Vasquez said: "There are a
lot of people who actually watch
the parade from our decks."
Restaurants aren't the only busi-
nesses receiving increased sales.
Hotels fill up and are able to charge
higher special-event prices.
"This has traditionally been one
of the first weekends to fill," said
John Pricher, tourist development
council assistant to the director of
Gator Growl [on] Friday and the
game on the next night, hotels are
assured of two nights."
He said the extra business on
Homecoming weekend helps ho-
tels get through quieter months.
"Hotels bank on Homecoming
weekend, because they are able
to charge a special-event price,"

of Southwest 13th Street and

"Instead of going to the clubs, we have bar-
beques at home," Herring said. "We realized
that we can still have fun and girls can come to
us instead of us having to go the clubs."
While numerous college football teams had
players arrested in the off-season, the Gators
have stayed off the police blotter since Meyer
"We have fun, but it's reasonable," Herring
said. "I always make sure-to think right instead
of just going out and acting crazy and not being
While Herring's respect for Meyer seems
endless these days, it works both ways.

"And you can imagine what a 6-foot, 230-pound lepre-

correct Bryan "Are you kidding I always, knew UF was
overrated" App, who believes that Urban Meyer's Gators
could score more points running the pick and roll rather
than the spread.
Trailing by two lengths on his Harley with a respectable
31-19 record is Publix boss hoss Eric "I bleed orange and
blue" Esteban, who must be trying to walk on to the basket-
ball team wearing those dirty UF gym shorts that he prob-
ably jacked from Corey Brewer's dirty clothes hamper.
Riding shotgun in Tenacious E's sidecar, also sporting
a 31-19 mark is freaky dejh vu master Farzad "I fell like

32, ALLIGATOR, HOMECOMING EDITION M FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2005
By BRYAN JONES
The Gators are looking to wash out the
sour. taste of a couple of tough 2004 conference
losses. Fortunately for them, they found some
Volunteers to give them a shot at redemption.
The No. 5 UF volleyball team (14-1, 4-0
Southeastern Conference) will host Tennessee
(9-5, 3-1 SEC) Friday night for the first time
since falling to the Volunteers twice in the
span of one week in 2004.
What Tennessee did to UF last season was
almost unheard of, considering the Gators' all-
time record of 203-3 against SEC opponents
under Coach Mary Wise.
"There have been years where we've been
here, and it was hard to get the
~ players excited about a match,"
Gators Wise said. "But it won't be hard
Volleyball to get them excited for Friday."
To a proud UF team that has
faced little adversity in its streak
of conference titles, last season's loss to the
Volunteers was downright embarrassing.
Tennessee defeated the Gators 3-2 in the
regular season finale to force a tie for the SEC
regular season title.
The loss put an end to UF's 145-match
regular-season SEC win streak and 121-match
overall conference win streak, both NCAA
It also seemed to knock some of the swag-
ger out of a team that had cruised through the
SEC for more than a decade, and it resounded
when 'UF lost to Tennessee again one week
later in a SEC Tournament championship
Sophomore opposite hitter Amber McCray
said Friday's game means more to the Gators
than just any regular-season match.
"They're a different team than last year, -
and we're a different team than last year, but,
of course [redemption] is still in our minds,"
McCray said. "We want to reclaim the SEC
title and bring it back to Florida ... not having
to share it."
Goalkeepers set to split playing time
By NICK ZACCARDI
Jen Gardner is fully healed, but at 2
p.m., she'll be back at 50 percent.
Gardner, the starting goalkeeper
for No. 20 UF the first six games of the
season, has been cleared to play against
Kentucky after missing about three
weeks with a fractured cheekbone.
But she will spend half of today's
Southeastern Conference tilt at Pressly
Stadium on the bench.
She and Brittni Goodwin, who filled
in the last five games, will each play
one half for the Gators (7-3-1, 2-1-1 SEC),
Coach Becky Burleigh said.
Following today's game with the
Wildcats (5-1-6, 1-1-2 SEC), Burleigh will
reassess the situation for Sunday against
Vanderbilt (11-1, 4-0 SEC).
"I guess that means that we're still
competing, and it's not really anybody's
job yet," Goodwin said.
"Ideally, sure, you're going to
want to play the whole game.
But playing is playing, and I'm
happy to be playing."
She's been through this before. As
a redshirt freshman in 2003, Goodwin
split time with Colleen -Donovan as
goalkeeper for the first two games.
Then she started the final 23 matches.
"I think typically that's pretty
standard when you have goalkeepers
fighting for a spot," Goodwin said. "If
you have two good goalkeepers, they
Playing on the field for 45 minutes
sits well with Goodwin, who holds a 3-
1-1 record with a pair of shutouts since
"Ideally, sure, you're going to want
to play the whole game," Goodwin
said. "But playing is playing, and I'm
happy to be playing."
Gardner, who will wear a protective
mask, is looking out for the team.
"Both of us are just looking to do
whatever it is for our team," Gardner
said. "Splitting halves, if both of us get
a shutout, then the team gets a shut-
out, and that's a good game."

Saturday, you can dress the offensive coordinator's head
with a virtual Spurrier visor.
Saturday is a day to mix your Urban Bourbons early, to relish
the Swamp, to munch on a blowout.
Forget the talent or lack thereof of Mississippi State.
Disregard the fact that Chad Jackson will be running past some
Starkville hobo for touchdowns all day long.
Have a good time. Just remember one thing: nothing you see
during the game matters.
After watching Urban Meyer's spread offense (we will re-
frain from using its world-famous catchphrase until the Gators
grasp the concept of the touchdown against a SEC powerhouse)
hurl against Alabama, fans everywhere want answers. Others
want demands. A ludicrous minority has even suggested a
bubble-screen revival. Considering that Ron Zook flashbacks
have been proven to cause ulcers, we hope Meyer declines.
UF's stance on its offense? Forget tinkering with a pseudo-
full back, relying on draw plays and trying to be Norm Chow
cute. The Gators will run the spread offense whether anyone
likes it or not.
What does this mean?
We all want to have an answer Saturday.
Sorry either hibernate for one week or enjoy the slaughter,
because the Gators will crush Mississippi State. And it will all
be about as meaningful as relationship advice from Anna Nicole
Remember Kentucky? Commonwealth Stadium personnel
continue to remove defensive corpses from the playing surface
after UF made the Wildcats feel bluer than Eiffel 65. Those 49
first-half points gave the Gator Nation hope of signs to come.

Saturday will be a return if you pretend it matters, which
it doesn't to the true spread offense. If anything, it will be re-
flected in the final score (here's to a hunch Meyer doesn't bring
in the subs at the start of the third quarter).
But there is no way anyone can know if UF's newfound
crush for the spread will amount to anything until it faces an
SEC monster again. That's where LSU comes in.
Has Chris Leak really mastered the option's timing and be-
come an adequate spread runner?
Only LSU's linebackers can say.
Is Markus Manson going to put the fun back into run?
Only LSU's defensive line will show us.
Can the Gators mix things up, passing for short yardage, yet
going deep against true SEC-caliber speed?.
Only LSU's secondary knows.
Meyer's spread future is not a black-and-white affair as some
continue to maintain. Many Division I schools like Louisville
and even Ohio State use spread elements successfully.
And so, while, UF won't continue producing hockey-like
scores, it remains to be seen how good the spread can really be.
For now, perhaps on one afternoon, we can all pretend that
what we see is what we get.

H-erring no more
Safety has rebounded from discipline woes i1
By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
Every Saturday, when Jarvis
Herring makes his weekly television
appearance, Wanda Owens becomes
the proudest mother in Live Oak.
Herring has transformed into one
of the Southeastern Conference's top
But on one quiet night in the
summer of 2004, when Herring
should have been anywhere but
on television, an ordinary night of
channel surfing became Owens'
A shocking news flash ap-
peared on the screen: Live Oak's
Jarvis Herring and UF teammate
Channing Crowder were arrested.
Details at 11.
The news seemed surreal.
Hearing was cited for resisting arrest
without violence, and the news left
Owens dumbfounded. Police of-
ficers said they were trying to arrest
Crowder for an altercation outside a
Gainesville nightclub and Herring
interfered. He pled no contest.
An irate Owens wanted explana-
tions. For an entire day, she franti-
cally attempted to reach Herringiby
cell phone, but to no avail.
She needed to speak to her sori
before he destroyed his most impor-
tant opportunity not the chance to
play college football, but the chance
to earn a degree.
So Owens, her mother and her
youngest son drove to Gainesville to
confront Herring face-to-face. Sure
enough, as Owens arrived at her
son's dorm, Herring and teammate
Dallas Baker appeared on the lawn.
To Owens, this presented the
perfect opportunity to get her point
across she would embarrass her
son in front of a close friend. It
seemed fair enough, because it was
Herring who already embarrassed
himself, Owens and the Gators.
"I said 'You should have an-
swered the phone, because you're
going to hear it now,"' Owens re-
called. "He wanted to walk off so
badly. He knew it was going to get
Herring called that the lowest
point of his life.
"[My mom] was. hurt real bad.
She bragged about me so much, and
I guess she really knew that I'm not
a bad child," Herring said. "I never
got into trouble before.
"It was just when I got off by my-
self, I just lost everything. I lost how
I was brought up, lost everything. It
hurt her the most. Seeing her cry, I
guess that was the main thing that
changed me. It was'embarrassing."
Owens wasn't the only person
"Later on it hit [Jarvis]," Owens
said. "He calls and [normally]
he's real tough ... but he just broke
Out of control
Owens expected an instant turn-
around, but it didn't occur.
Herring stayed out of legal
trouble during the 2004 season, but
when former coach Ron Zook lost
his job after the Mississippi State loss
last year, it was Herring who shot off
an array of expletives aimed at UF
athletics director Jeremy Foley.
When it became clear to Herring
that Zook wouldn't be reinstated,
Herring's disenchantment grew.
His passion for the game was fading
rapidly, and skipping class became
"He was pretty close [to getting
thrown off the team]," sophomore
safety Kyle Jackson said. "I don't
know the exact [situation], but he
was dose. He was so dose that he
wasn't really talking to anybody at
By November, Herring seriously
thought about quitting football.
"But I felt that if I wouldn't have
played football for a year, there's
no telling what I would have done,
especially with the way I was act-'
ing," Herring said. "I wouldn't have
known how to control myself."
New set of rules
Nearly a year after the Bulldogs
sparked Zook's demise, Herring can
hardly believe what has transpired.
On Saturday, Herring, now a
team captain, will stand at midfield
for the pregame coin toss. No matter
where the coin lands, it's dear that
Herring's life has quickly landed in
the right direction.
Don't be surprised if he glances
toward the sideline for a glimpse at
the man who has given him new life.
The redeemed captain credits his
mother and Cleveland Browns
linebacker Andra Davis, Herring's
cousin and a former Gators star, for
pushing him in the right direction.
But it's UF coach Urban Meyer who
has given him a rebirth both on and
off the field.
"I try not to listen [to what other
people say]," Meyer- said. "I heard
[about Herring's troubles] and I
didn't care what happened in the
past. I don't really know [what hap-
pened]. Whenever I start hearing
something, I move on so I can make
my own opinions of him."
Still, a Meyer-Herring collabora-
tion seemed unlikely. Herring knew
of Meyer's reputation as a discipli-
narian, and it didn't fly well with a
player nearly kicked off the team
just months before.
Listening to Meyer
But heading into his senior
season, Herring realized he had
one final chance. So along with
his teammates, Herring listened to
Meyer's words. Slowly, he bought

If you thought the Pit was an effec-
tive motivational tool, you've never
been on the Farm.
As the underdog Mississippi State
football team prepared to take on
Texas in 1992, former Bulldogs' coach
Jackie Sherrill wanted to make sure
his players knew what they were go-
ing up against.
"I asked our players if they knew
what a steer was, and none of them
knew," Sherrill explained. "I had
a manager who's father was in the
cattle business. They were doing -it
all the time, meaning taking bulls,
casterating them and making steers
out of them."
So the manager arranged to have a
veterinarian make a steet for Sherrill's
Mississippi State football Bulldogs at
a team practice.
A women's track athlete, whose
mother worked at the university, was
walking across the practice field and
spotted the demonstration. Needless
to say, the story spiraled out of con-
trol, causing a national uproar.
But Sherrill insists he did nothing
wrong. The procedure, he said, was
performed by a professional at the
request of the owner.
"It's not any different than going
6ut to somebody's farm and they do
10, 15, 20 head a day," Sherrill said.
"You just watch it."
Still, Sherrill likes to ruffle a few
feathers when he can.
"I kid everybody all the time that
I teach castration 101 at Mississippi
State," Sherrill said. "Personally, I've
done crazier things than that."
With the intensity college football
players face as during a grueling
week-long stretch of drills, Sherrill
said he just tried to take some of the
edge off things. Isn't a game sup-
posed to be fun after all.
Sherrill once pumped up his play-

UF seeks redemption for '04 upset
By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
How do you avenge one of the most embar-
rassing losses in school history?
Simple. Take out your frustration on a team
that dealt you an equally painful loss last sea-
The Gators take the field Saturday for the
first time since getting spanked by Alabama
And the opponent happens to be Mississippi
State, the team that defeated UF 38-31 in one of
the most surprising college football upsets in
the country last season.
The Gators won't lack motivation this week-
"I remember after the game seeing what
happened and it sucked," said sophomore tight
end Tate Casey, who was on the field when
Mississippi State fans tore down the goal post.
"I definitely don't want to see that again, espe-
cially in our stadium."
Though the Mississippi State loss, which put
a screeching halt to the Ron Zook era at UF, is
certainly painful in the eyes and minds of the
Gators, it's the Alabama game that has them
This time last week, UF was an undefeated

ference championship game, but the Gators
were exposed, bloodied and beaten a week
It was so bad that UF coach Urban Meyer,
whose 21-game win streak was snapped that
day in Tuscaloosa, Ala., was nearly at a loss
for words after the game.
"I think we needed a wake-up call,"
said safety Jarvis Herring. "I didn't think
we needed a loss that bad. We got our ass
whooped. We didn't need anything that bad
but we needed a tough game."
It's all about going back to the basics this
week at least, the basics of Meyer's of-
While the Bulldogs proved they are capa-
ble of defeating the Gators, nobody's giving
them much of a chance this year.
UF is currently listed as a 28-point favor-
ite, and it could be an even bigger margin of
It won't necessarily matter.
At one point against Kentucky two weeks
ago, UF held a 49-7 lead before being out-
scored 21-0 in the second half by the Wildcats.
Then came the Alabama fiasco.
It's not just about scoring points' against
Mississippi State. Meyer needs the Gators to
figure things out especially his offensive
schemes quickly, especially before facing
LSU and Georgia in the next two weeks.
"We're figuring it out now," Herring said.
."We have to make sure that we're coming in
prepared, and the leaders have to drag the
other guys along."
Gators fall flat during openih
By IAN FISHER
Although UF's season jumped
off to a fast start, the Gators have
had trouble starting each game.
UF has been forced to punt on
every opening drive of its five
games this season.
The Gators only have one first
down on their "first drive, which
came against Kentucky when their
punt was blocked.
Coach Urban Meyer doesn't
think it's a matter of the Gators
coming out slow, though. The
coach just wants his team to stop
committing mental errors and
"I think it's just a guy missing
a block, a guy getting a penalty, a
guy holding on a kickoff return,"
Meyer said. "I don't think it's slug-
gish; I think it's a breakdown."
WHO CALLS THE SHOTS?: Meyer
said the Gators script the first 11
or 12 plays of a game beforehand.
After those are used up, Meyer
said offensive coordinator Dan
Mullen makes the calls, but he has
the final say. .
"Most of the plays are done

when the defense is on the field
and we'll say, 'What are we going
to go with this series?'" Meyer
said. "That's most of the time.
Danny calls it, and I'll say, 'Go
with this. Go with this.'"

ANALYSIS: The Bulldogs' offensive strength lies with its running game, and after an awful performance by UF's secondary against Alabama, this could be a confidence booster for the Gators. Free safety Kyle Jackson
needs to step up before he loses his spot to a guy like Reggie Nelson. ADVANTAGE: UF
KEY PLAYERS: UF: Jr. kicker Chris Hetland (6-6, 47 long), Sr. punt returned Vernell Brown (16att., 5.5avg., 22 long) MSU: Fr. punter Blake McAdams (34att., 41.9avg., 60 long), Fr. kick returned Derek Pegues (15att.,
20.2avg., 51 long)
ANALYSIS: Meyer struggled to say anything positive about the Gators after the Alabama loss, but he did give special teams some props. UF's special teams continues to improve, especially on kick and punt coverage.
Hetland still hasn't missed a field goal.
It's been a year since UF's embarrassing loss to Mississippi State that ultimately put the finishing touches on the Ron Zook era in Gainesville. Not only will the Gators avenge that loss, but they're still peeved about last
week's 31-3 thrashing at the hands of Alabama. This is UF's final tune-up before facing both Louisiana State and Georgia, and it should be a blowout victory.
