HOMECOMING


Gator Growl rocks UF


MISSISSIPPI STATE 9#1 UF35


* LAUGHS RANGED FROM
PILLS TO PORN.

By DAVID COHEN
Alligator Writer
dcohen@alligator.org

It started with three United
States Special Operations
Command paratroopers
weaving red smoke above
the stadium and ended with
Wayne Brady impersonating
Tina Turner.
More than 40,000 witnessed
the Florida Blue Key-pro-
duced Gator Growl 2005 at
Ben Hill Griffin Stadium on
Friday night.
The show, billed as the
largest student-run pep rally
in the nation, featured impro-
visation by "Whose Line Is It
Anyway?" star Wayne Brady,


stand-up comedy from "Tough
Crowd with Colin Quinn"
regular Greg Giraldo, the
crowning of the Homecoming
queen and a fireworks finale
that blanketed the stadium
with smoke. -
"Some people give up
chocolate for Lent. That's
just like getting nailed to
a cross."
Greg Giraldo
comediart


Pre-taped comedy skits
were projected on two movie
theater-sized screens on the
sides of the stage, filling time
between Gators teams and
speeches by alumni and coach-
es pumping up the crowd. The
skits featured mockeries of ri-


val schools, the Alligator and
UF President Bernie Machen's
push to curb underage and
binge drinking.
Machen sported a leather
vest and jeans during the
opening ceremonies while
standing next to his Harley-
Davidson motorcycle at the
corner of the end zone.
"This is the Gator Nation,"
he said. "Let the Gator
Growl."
Giraldo made fun of every-
thing from Christians tradi-
tions to erectile-dysfunction
pills.
"They've got a new boner
pill out," he said. "They've
got new pills every three sec-
onds."
But to give the punchline to
the joke, he turned to the alum-

Scooter spots increase


By TRAVIS SCHEFT
Alligator Contributing Writer

Scooter parking on campus may in-
crease at the expense of spots for full-sized
cars, UF-officials said.
Campus parking officials plan to re-
place lesser-used traditional parking spots
this Spring with spaces for smaller-sized
vehicles such as scooters and motorcycles,
said Scott Fox, UF's Transportation and
Parking Services director.
The department also plans a short-term
fix this week or next, when it will enlarge
the areas around select scooter parking
lots, Fox said.
"We should be able to increase the
amount of space available for motorcycles
and scooters in a week or so," Fox said.
"But any real noticeable change in parking
space won't be ready for the students until
the Spring."
He noted that any immediate increases
in scooter parking will come from annex-

lots.
However, any immediate additions to.
scooter parking will not be significant, he
said.
Scooter sales in Gainesville have esca-
lated by as much as 15 percent because of
the dramatic increases in gas prices, ac-
cording to a recent Alligator report.
The sales of motorcycle and scooter de-
cals have seen a similar rise,

Campus Fox said..
However, the amount of
parking zones for those vehicles has in-
creased only slightly.
Fox explained that the delay in parking
expansion stems from the fact that there is
a finite amount of space on campus avail-
able for parking.
"With the limited amount of resources
for parking, it has become an art to have

Smith inspires Gators


By ERIC ESTEBAN
Alligator Staff Writer

Just hours before kickoff, a UF team
still searching for an offensive iden-
tity went through its usual game-day
morning routine.
Then, Coach Urban Meyer decided
to serve breakfast with a heaping side
of old-school Gators' greatness.
Emmitt Smith, the NFL's all-time
leading rusher, returned to Gainesville
and spoke to the team about account-
ability and playing like a family.
What ensued was a 35-9 defensive-
led pummeling of a Mississippi State
team that had upset these same Gators
just a year ago when goal posts came

Free flu shots no more


* STUDENT HEALTH CARE CENTER
WILL CHARGE $5 FOR VACCINE.
By KARl TARR
Alligator Contributing Writer
UF students who benefited from free
flu vaccinations in .the past at UF's Student
Health Care Center will be charged a $5 co-
payment this year due to the rising cost of the
vaccine.
"The cost of the vaccine has quadrupled,"
said Jane Cullen, associate director of nursing
at SHCC.
Still affected by the flu vaccine shortage of
last year, UF will receive only half of the usual
10,000 annual doses of the past five years,
Cullen said.
Last October, the United States" second
largest supplier of flu vaccines was unexpect-
edly shut down by British regulators because
of possible contamination. UF was left with-
out the 10,000 doses it typically administered
free of charge to students, Cullen said.
As vaccines slowly arrived throughout the
year, they were given to people considered at
high risk, such as healthcare workers, those
with chronic health problems and pregnant
women, Cullen said.
Starting Oct. 17, SHCC staff will begin


administering the vaccine to those considered
high risk.
On Oct. 25, any student, staff or faculty
member can be vaccinated at the healthcare
center and satellite clinics around campus.
The shot, for which UF pays $10.42 per dose,
will be $5 for students and $20 for faculty and
staff. FluMist, an alternative nasal-spray vac-
cine, will cost $30.
"The co-pay of $5 is just to feel like we're
breaking even," Cullen said.
"The cost of the vaccine has
quadrupled."
Jane Cullen
Associate director of nursing

The shortages last year forced a cooper-
ative effort between UF, Shands at UF and
the private medical system in Gainesville
to locate high-risk individuals, vaccinate
them and work down the hierarchy, said
Alachua County Health Director Tom
Belcuore.
"There is a level of trust and faith in each
other," Belcuore said. "We are ready. for an
influenza challenge of any kind."
Flu season in the United States typically
starts in November and ends in May, peaking
in early January.


PUBLIC SAFETY

Cops catch theft team
By STEPHANIE RODRIGUEZ through a bedroom window. This
Alligator Writer burglary occurred on the night of
srodriguez@alligator.org Sept. 16.


Gainesville Police Department of-
ficers caught a team of two burglars
Thursday.
Jamie Moodie, 24, and Greg
Laughton Baldwin, 21, were arrested
for breaking into two apartments
and stealing items totaling $2,312,
according to police reports.
Moodie entered a Boardwalk
apartment, located at 2701 SW 13th
St., on Aug. 28 through an unlocked
sliding glass door.
Moodie then stole two white
leather purses containing $300 and a
Motorola cell phone worth $250.
The second residence, an apart-
ment in The Landings, located
at 3801 SW 13th St., was entered


Moodie stood as a lookout for
Baldwin as he entered the bedroom
and stole jewelry, X-Box games, an
XBox game controller and 35 DVD
movies, which he put in a stolen
black Reebok duffle bag.
Moodie became a suspect when he
sold six DVD movies soon after the
second burglary to Hear Again CDs,
818 W University Ave.
Both men were interviewed by
GPD to determine their involve-
ment in other burglaries that have
occurred in the city.
Baldwin and Moodie admitted
to committing both burglaries and
stealing the personal property that
was inside the residences after the
arrest.

UF RESEARCH

Desert defies CIMAR


By ALEXIS LLOYD
Alligator Writer

UF's NaviGATOR, a 4,300-
pound robotic racer, finished far
better than last year's competitor in
the 131.6-mile Grand Challenge race
but came well short of winning the
$2 million prize.
Built by Team CIMAR, which
is comprised of eight UF graduate
students, the robot didn't finish
the race, placing 18th out of 23,
but did travel 23 miles, more than
twice what last year's UF robot
managed.
Stanford University's Stanley
won the Mojave Desert race in 6:53:
48, under the 10-hour time limit set
by the U.S. Department of Defense,
which sponsored the competition.
At 3 a.m., all the competitors re-
ceived the race route via CD-ROM.
UF's team worked busily inputting
the latitudes and longitudes into the
global positioning equipment on
board the NaviGATOR.
"We really pushed [the
NaviGATOR] as hard as-it could
go because we came to win," said
Dave Armstrong, project manager
for Team CIMAR. "But it ended up
costing us."
Armstrong said if they had
slowed down their progress through
the course, they could have easily


placed in the top five teams.
"The team didn't want to come
to the line knowing we would lose,"
he said.
"This was a milestone in
robotics for sure."
Dave Armstrong
Team CIMAR project manager

Armstrong is nonetheless proud.
"The vehicle we developed is
an awesome machine," he said. "It
was one of the cleanest out there. We
spent a lot of time designing it and
carrying out the building of it."
The team is bringing the vehicle
back to UF to finish more details
on the NaviGATOR and let the stu-
dents perform more tests.
"Once we finish it up in the next
six months, it will be one of the best
unmanned systems in the world,"
Armstrong said.
The team will give its "baby"
up for adoption when it donates it
to the research and development
department of the Air Force.
Although the loss was disap-
pointing. for the team, Armstrong
said it was exciting to see the win-
ning vehicle pass the finish line.
"This was a milestone in robot-
ics for sure," he said.

Growl a challenge,


treat for comedians


* COMICS LURED BY REC-
OMMENDATIONS.

By STEPHEN MAGRUDER
Alligator Writer
smagruder@alligator.org

Wayne Brady and Greg
Giraldo may have two very dif-
ferent comedic styles, but they
both agreed that getting their
humor across to the thousands
who attended Friday's Gator
Growl would be a unique chal-
lenge.
Giraldo, a seasoned stand-
up comedian, has performed
on television programs and in
clubs across the
country but
no t in a
Slive vemnue
",- the size o.t
,*" Ben Hill


Griffin Stadium.
"It hasn't really sunk in yet
- not a lot of clubs hold 30,000
or 40,000 people," Giraldo said
during a Thursday night press
conference. "Bombing in front
of that many people would be
upsetting."
Brady, an experienced co-
medic improviser and former
television talk show host, said
although he was used to per-
forming for theater audiences,
he was excited about bringing
his musical and improvisation-
al act to such a large stadium
crowd.
"This is a stadium; this is a
dream come true for me 'cause
in mv own head, it's like I'm a
rock star Brady said. "I thrive
'tt the l'. ec \,:itement."
Friday night wag the first
Gro%% l for either performer, but
both c:ame into Gainesville with
stories from friends and col-
leagues about what to expect
at what is billed as
the nation's largest
student-run
pep rally.
"I have
friends that
have done it
before and -.aid it's great a
little over whehning with such
a giant space Giraldo said,
adding that stand-up comedy
can be a little tricky anytime it's
done outdoor-
Brady said his interest was
piqued %hen he heard from a
friend that Growl per-
formers were treated
v*. I like royalty.
"Any time that a
guy hears, 'They treat
you like a king,' you go
and you do the show,"
he said.


Brady used audience for song ideas

ni section of the stadium.
He said sometimes people
do not understand what a real
sacrifice is.
"Some people give up
chocolate for Lent. That's just
like getting nailed to a cross,"
he said sarcastically.
He quipped about national
politics and foreign relations
and said it would be difficult
to infiltrate North Korea be-
cause they know karate.
Brady followed Giraldo and
took audience suggestions to
create various improvisational
skits, many similar to those from
the ABC show.
Brady appeared on stage
with Jonathan Mangum, a
regular on "The Wayne Brady

Editorial


Coffee crisis

Library should get cut

of Starbucks profit
Every time a Starbucks goes up, a few feisty idealists drag
out their anti-corporate posters and lament the terrible
state of our capitalist country.
It gets a little annoying.
But what really chafes the Eiitorial Board's bums is when
we agree with their ultimate opinion and hate their empty ar-
guments.
And we're feeling that distaste more than ever with the argu-
ment over placing a Starbucks in the remodeled Library West.
UF administrators want the company to have a permanent
shop within the new library when it opens. The university will
have to pay for a few start-up costs but ultimately will squeeze
out a more than 10 percent commission from sales.
It will all be placed in a UF Business Services food service
account.
Here's where the arguments come in.
Protesters argue that the library shouldn't be used for some-
one else's profit. They don't want ugly corporations in their
place of learning, and thus want Starbucks run from campus
like a dog with its tail between its legs.
This is incredibly far-fetched. As it has been stated again and
again, UF needs money. Students pay close to nothing to attend
classes, our government constantly cuts education budgets, and
public schools like UF have to find ways to pad their accounts.
The answer is corporate money. We may not like it, and our
campus may feel like an advertisement, but that's life. Deal with
it,
Our only other option is to make students voluntarily in-
crease their tuition three-fold. That's just laughable.
So why can't protesters turn their attention to something a
little more constructive?
The Editorial Board believes the library should get a cut of
Starbucks' profit. Our library is an integral part of UF, and the
coffee shop will be taking up valuable space.
UF is spending millions of dollars expanding the undersized
library. We're betting it still won't be big enough to accom-
modate'a collection appropriate for UF's 48,000 students. And
now they want to take away some of that space for an establish-
ment that will produce a lot of foot traffic without helping the
library?
UF President Bernie Machen wants UF to be a Top 10 public
research university. A library is an important part of that goal.
Of course, there are a million other things that are just as impor-
tant, but they won't have to deal with the irritating presence of
a Starbucks.-
This is an easy opportunity to funnel money directly to a
needy section of the university without touching the universi-
ty's bigger budget.
But ultimately, it's the administrators' decision, and we don't
doubt that they need the money.
We're just a little taken aback by the kinds of tactics used to
ensure this end.
In several e-mails, some UF administrators discussed how
to discourage library officials from trying to get a cut of the
Starbucks profits. They wrote about downplaying how much
profit will be made and picking what figures should be used in
a report to librarians.
Some bickering is always expected between two under-
funded parties grasping for dough. But officials are starting to
look a little childish, albeit entertainingly so.
The bottom line is that everyone needs money and no one
should underestimate that need. But UF officials should look
to create good relations with the library, rather than trying to
deviously deprive librarians of a say in what happens in their
workplace.

Pride speaker canceled; other events to go on


By DIANA MAZZELLA
Alligator Writer
dmazzella@alligator.org
A speech planned for tonight fo-
cusing on gay, lesbian, bisexual and
transgender civil rights has been
canceled due to illness.
The Pride Student Union had
planned to host Elizabeth Birch, for-
mer executive director of the Human
Rights Campaign Foundation. But
PSU Treasurer Jason Freshly said


he found out Sunday she would be
unable to come but that the speech
would be rescheduled.
Birch was invited to speak at UF
to commemorate National Coming

PSU spokeswoman Adelise
Fontanet said having this speaker
come to UF would show support
for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans-
gender people in the community.
The inability of homosexual couples
who ,would otherwise meet adop-

She encouraged those not part of
the LGBT community to come to the
speech as well and help break down
stereotypes.
"Educate yourself on the stereo-
types that you have," she said.
Tuesday is National Coming

Super-flu could kill as many as 1.9M Americans


By ANNA SUGGS
Alligator Contributing Writer
A super-flu could kill up to 1.9 million
Americans, according to the government's
plan to fight a worldwide epidemic.
The Bush administration has spent the last
year updating its plan for how
Public to fight the next flu pandemic.
Safety A recent draft of the plan, first
reported Saturday by The New
York Times, models what might happen
based on the last century's three pandemics.
In a best-case scenario, about 200,000
people might die. But if the next pandemic
resembles the 1918 Spanish flu, as many as
1.9 million could die, Michael Osterholm


of the University of Minnesota told The
Associated Press. Millions more would be ill,
overwhelming hospitals.
The bird-spread avian flu, which kills
more than half of humans infected, can be
contracted through undercooked poultry as
well as contact with the saliva, mucous and
feces of the birds, said a representative of the
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Alachua County Health Director Tom
Belcuore said avian flu is a concern.
"It represents the potential that for the
first six months, if it mutates, there will be
no vaccine ready, and it will circle the globe,"
he said.
The number of confirmed human cases


of the virus is increasing, a


World Health


"There is terror of this virus be-
cause there is no immunity to it."

Organization report showed. Seventy-one
human cases of the virus were reported since
the end'of last year, the report stated. There
have been 59 known deaths, 27 of which were
reported in the last year.
Although cases of the virus have only
been reported in Asia, worldwide transpor-
tation of the virus is possible through planes
and travelers, the CDC representative said.
"There is terror of this virus because there
is no immunity to it," he said.


If the avian flu reaches Gainesville,
Belcuore said, laboratory teams will be sent
out to investigate every case of flu virus, even
if it is not the avian flu. The department will
have a plan that follows federal guidelines to
allocate the antiviral medication Tamiflu.
The government has on hand enough of
the anti-flu drug to treat 4.3 million people.
Manufacturing of $100 million worth of a
bird flu vaccine just began.
Mary Thorkildson, nurse practitioner of
the UF Student Health Care Center at Shands
and coordinator of clinical programs, said she
doesn't know if avian flu should concern UF.
"When it is something this remote, we're
not proactive," she said about the virus.
The Associated Press contributed to this report.


UF defense leads charge against Bulldogs

FOOTBALL, from page 1


"That was a powerful.message by arguably the
greatest football player of all time, And a Gator."
Apparently Smith's message affected the entire
team, not just the offensive players. It was UF's de-
fense that held the Bulldogs to 243 total yards, while
pressuring for six sacks, creating three turnovers and
registering two safeties.
Defensive end Jeremy Mincey led the charge with
10 tackles and two sacks.
But it was middle linebacker Brandon Siler that
had arguably the most dominating game. Siler, who
knocked the Bulldogs' quarterback Omar Conner out
of the game with a bruised chest, finished with four
tackles, a fumble recovery, a sack and a safety. After
the game, Meyer called Siler the defensive MVP.
Despite the success on defense, Meyer walked off
the field seemingly in despair for an injury-riddled
offense trying for consistency and production. It's
also an offense, ready or not, that will face No. 10
Louisiana State on Saturday.
"What you've been seeing on the field is not what


we've been trying to run, and I'mt not satisfied with
our offense at all," Meyer said. "We're obviously
struggling. I think the 480 offensive yards you see on
paper is very misleading."
After secretly not practicing all week with a bruised
right shoulder, quarterback Chris Leak went 18 of 33
for 244 yards with a touchdown and two intercep-
tions. Dallas Baker led all receivers with seven catches
for 123 yards, both career highs, and a touchdown.
While the passing game showed signs of promise
despite missing both Andre Caldwell and Jemalle
Cornelius, it was a different story for the running
game. Redshirt freshman Markus Manson had the
best day of the running back by committee, showing
the speed needed to be successful in Meyer's offense.
Manson ran the ball seven times for 45 yards. But with
a trip to Death Valley looming, the Gators ran back
into the tunnel with a question mark at the position
where Smith once ran supreme.
"I thought Markus Manson played very well for us
today," Meyer said. "He averaged 6.4 yards a run and
did some good things, but right now we're still a run-
ning back by committee, and we'll continue to do that
until someone steps up and owns the spot."

STUDENT LIVING GUIDE


Getting started

How do I find an apartment?
Pick up an Off-Campus Housing Packet
from the University of Florida Division of Hous-
ing located at the corner of Museum Road and
S.W. 13th Street It contains maps and informa-
tion on apart-ment complexes and utilities.
Rental opportunities may also be found in
the classified sections of The Gainesville Sun,
The Independent Florida Alligator, and bulle-
tin boards around campus.

What should I look for in an
apartment?
In Gainesville, there is a glut of available
apartments. You should examine several
apartments before signing a lease.
* Application Deposits: Never put down a de-
posit to hold an apartment unless you have
a written agreement indicating whether it
is refundable.
Cost: Can you afford it? Even if your room-
mates leave?
Location: Is the neighborhood safe? Even
at night? Are you within easy walking .or
cycling distance of campus?. Are buses


available?
* City Limits: Gainesville protects tenants
by enforcing housing codes. The city will
order landlords to make repairs. Alachua
County will inspect apartments and issue a
report of violations.
* Model Apartments: Never sign a lease
based upon a model. Insist on seeing your
actual apartment.
* Pest Control: Does the landlord maintain a
regular spraying program?
* Function: Check appliances, run water in
all sinks, showers and tubs, flush toilets,
and check air conditioning and heating.
* Appearance: Is it clean? Do the carpets
look worn or smell bad? Has the apart-
ment been recently painted? Do the walls
have nail holes?
* Inventory: Note all defects on the invento-
ry sheet or check-in list signed by the land-
lord or an impartial witness. Photograph
or videotape the apartment at move in.
* Landlord: Speak to tenants of the apart-
ment complex. Does the landlord make a
habit of unannounced entries? Are repairs
made quickly?
* Noise and Parking: Check for noise and
-parking problems by visiting the apart-


ment at various times during the day, at
night and on weekends.
0 Safety: Are there deadbolts on the doors?
Are hallways and parking lots well lit? If
there are sliding glass doors, are there
adequate locks to deter forced entry? You
can contact the Alachua County Sheriff's
Office or the' Gainesville Police Depart-
ment to obtain information on crime in
the area.
* Single-Family Housing: The landlord may
legally provide fewer services for houses
and duplexes. The landlord may also shift
maintenance responsibilities to you in
the lease. In some neighborhoods, only
three unrelated persons may live together.
Check with the city if you plan on having
more than two roommates.

What should I do before I
sign a lease?
0 Do read the lease and make sure you un-
derstand it.
I3 Do have a lawyer review the lease.
R0 Do expect to pay full rent, not just your
share. This is what "joint and several" li-
ability means, a term included or implied


in nearly all leases.
R0 Do obtain a copy of the lease and all attach-
ments or addendums to the lease.
0 Do have all promised repairs and improve-
ments written into the lease and signed by
the landlord.
0 Do keep a copy of the lease and all the at-
tachments or addendums with your impor-
tant, permanent records.
0 Do insist on seeing your actual unit.
0 Do get clear written permission for any
pets.
R0 Do check for maintenance responsibilities
when renting a house or duplex.

" Do riot sign a 12-month lease unless you
are willing to pay rent for 12 months.
"l Do not sign a 12-month lease with room-
mates unless all roommates are willing to
pay rent for 12 months.
"3 Do not have your parents sign the lease
or a parental guarantee agreeing to be
responsible for rent.
"3 Do not sign a lease with an automatic re-
newal clause.
" Do not sign a lease that gives the landlord
unlimited access to the apartment without
notice or consent.

14, ALLIGATOR N MONDAY, OCTOBER 10, 2005


l Do not sign a lease based upon a model
apartment.
I Do not sign a lease before visiting the
neighborhood at various times during the
day, at night and on weekends.
1l Do not sign a lease until all agreements ne-
gotiated with the landlord are in writing.

How do I find a
-good roommate?
The University of Florida Division of
Housing maintains a roommate share board.
Other bulletin boards around campus and
classified ads are additional sources.
Discuss with potential roommates prefer-
ences in food, music, personal habits, sleep-
ing and study hours, friends and finances.
An open and frank appraisal of each other's
likes, dislikes, and expectations will increase
the chances of an enjoyable shared living
experience. A written roommate agreement
is advisable.

Do I really need insurance
for my personal property?
Yes. Unless you are financially able to
replace all your belongings, you should have
insurance. Proper insurance coverage will
protect you against the loss of your valuables
in most circumstances. Landlord's are legally
responsible for such losses only under very
specific, limited circumstances which may be
very difficult to prove in court
If you are a resident-relative of your parents,
your personal property may be insured through
their homeowner's policy. Have your parents
confirm the coverage in writing with their insur-
ance agent.
If coverage is not available through your
parents' homeowner's policy, you may be able
to purchase renter's insurance. Even with
insurance, there are certain precautions you
should always take. Always lock your apart-
ment securely even if you are only going next
door. Never leave jewelry, cameras, cash,
checkbooks, credit cards, or other valuables in
plain sight


Getting Alon
My landlord refuses to make repairs.
What can I do?
-You may be- able to either withhold-your
rent or terminate your lease if the problem


constitutes a material breach of the lease or
the Act. You must follow the exact require-
ments of the Act
You must give the landlord a written no-
tice demanding the repairs be made in seven
days. The notice must indicate your intention
to terminate the lease or withhold rent if the
repairs are not made.
This is a complicated process and the legal
consequences are very serious. You should
obtain legal advice before attempting to ter-
minate your lease or withhold rent.

Can I deduct repair costs
from my rent?
No. The Act does not authorize you to
make repairs or to recover the cost of such
repairs. In fact, most apartment leases pro-
hibit repairs by tenants. When the landlord
refuses to make repairs, the, Act gives you
a qualified right to terminate the lease or
withhold rent. As previously indicated, you
should consult an attorney before attempting
to terminate the lease or withhold rent.

What can I do about noisy
neighbors?
Try to reason with the neighbor to reach an
acceptable compromise. Thin walls and con-
flicting schedules make some amount of noise
disturbance an unavoidable reality of apartment
living.
Ask the landlord for assistance. If the land-
lord refuses to correct the problem, you may be
able to break your lease. Because the law in
this area is so poorly developed, legal represen-
tation is a necessity.
In extreme cases, call the police and.report
the matter. Unfortunately, this can lead to re-
venge and reprisals.

I can't stand my roommate.
What can I do?
Immediately discuss the matter with your
roommate. Don't ignore the problem with
the hope that it will go away. A little give and
take may result in a livable compromise.
Under the Act, your landlord is not respon-
sible for most roommate disputes. If your
roommate is violating the lease, you should
consult an attorney.


Can my rent be increased
during my lease term?
Not unless the lease contains a specific
provision allowing for a rent increase. From
the tenant's perspective, one of the primary
reasons for having a written lease is to lock in
the rent for the rental period. Normally, you
should not sign a lease providing for a rent
increase.

Can my landlord enter my
apartment without notice?
No. Unless there is an emergency or you
have abandoned your apartment, the landlord
must provide reasonable notice and obtain
your consent prior to entering your apart-
ment.
You cannot unreasonably withhold con-
sent If the landlord persists in entering with-
out notice or consent, contact an attorney.

How soon must I
renew my lease?
There is no time period established by the
Act. You should not sign a lease that provides
for automatic renewals or requires you to give
the landlord a notice of nonrenewal. If you do
sign such a lease, you must strictly comply with
the notice requirements imposed by the lease.
If the lease does not specify otherwise,
renewals are a matter of general contract law.
The landlord cannot force you to renew prior
to the end of your lease. However, if you do
not renew by the landlord's "deadline," the
landlord may rent your apartment to some-
one else.


Getting Out
Can I break my lease because...
"I am graduating?" No!
"My roommate left?" No!
"I cannot afford the rent? No!
"I need to work this summer?" No!
'The neighborhood is unsafe?" No!

Under the Act, you can only terminate the
lease if the landlord is materially violating
your lease or the Act. You should obtain legal
advice before attempting to terminate your
lease. In many cases, the best thing you can
do is find replacement tenants.


Can I sublet my apartment?
Usually. The landlord cannot unreason-
.ably withhold consent to an assignment or
sublease. The landlord may require potential
replacement tenants to submit an application
including a credit check. The landlord may
also charge a reasonable sublet fee even
when you provide the replacement tenants.
Normally you remain liable under your lease
if the replacement tenants do not pay rent or
damage the apartment. Some landlords will
release you from the obligations of your lease.
If you are being released, get it in writing.

Can I just move out and for-
feit my security deposit?
No. Some tenants will walk out on a lease
and receive no adverse action, while others
will be pursued to the fullest extent of the
law. In Gainesville's current rental market,
the odds are that you will be sued unless you
supply acceptable replacement tenants.
Your losses in court will not be limited to
your security deposit, but will include rent for
each month the apartment remains vacant
during the term of your lease, plus court costs
and the landlord's attorney's fees.


Getting it back
What steps can I take to
protect my security deposit?
When you take occupancy of the apartment,
complete a thorough written inventory of the
apartment's condition and have the landlord or
an impartial witness sign the inventory. Make
sure you keep a copy of the inventory. This
helps protect you from the landlord claiming
you caused pre-existing damage.
When you move out, completely and thor-
oughly clean the apartment. Some landlords
provide a checklist outlining the cleaning
they expect you to do. Keep all your receipts
for cleaning supplies and professional carpet
cleaning as evidence.
Before you leave, ask the landlord to
inspect the apartment with you. Complete
a move-out checklist and make sure the
landlord signs and dates it Use an impar-
tial witness if the landlord is not available or
refuses your request. Move-in and move-out

STUDENT LIVING GUIDE


photographs or videotape are also strongly
recommended in case there is a dispute.

Can I use my security depos-
it for the last month's rent?
No. Landlords can legally evict you for
non-payment of rent even when your "se-
curity deposit" is equal to your last month's
rent. The purpose of the security deposit is to
protect the landlord against damages to the
apartment.

Does the law require
interest payments on
security deposits?
Landlords must hold security deposits in
one of three methods. Two methods of hold-
ing the deposits require interest to be paid.
The method which does not require interest
payments is the one most landlords use. The
landlord is required to inform you in writing
how your deposit is being held, where it is
held, and whether you will receive interest.

What can I do if my landlord
doesn't return my deposit?
Alandlord shall have 15 days after termina-
tion of the lease to return the security deposit
together with interest if otherwise required, if
he or she does not intend to impose a claim on
the security deposit. If the landlord intends to
impose a claim on the security deposit, he or
she shall have 30 days to give the tenant writ-
ten notice by certified mail, stating how much
is going to be deducted and why. You must
object to the deduction in writing within 15


days from the date you receive the notice, or
the landlord will be authorized to deduct his
or her claim from your security deposit.
-If the landlord fails to give the required
notice within the 30-day period, he or she
forfeits the right to impose a claim upon the
security deposit.
However, if you damaged the apartment,
the landlord can sue you even -when the 30-
day notice is not given. Because the landlord
can also get court costs and attorney's fees,
you should consult an attorney before filing
any lawsuits.


Gettmng Evicte
What are my duties
as a tenant?
*First, last, and always PAY RENT!
*Comply with all other lease terms.
*Comply with all rules and regulations.
*Comply with housing and health codes.
*Comply with all zoning restrictions.
*Keep the apartment clean and sanitary.
*Keep plumbing fixtures sanitary.
*Do not damage the apartment.
*Do not disturb your neighbors.

What exactly is an eviction?
An eviction is the formal end to your right
to occupy the apartment. It does not end your
duty to pay rent.
An eviction starts with a Summons. You
must file an Answer within five days. Contact
an attorney immediately.
If the court rules against you, a judgment for
possession of the apartment, unpaid rent, late
fees, interest, court costs and attorney's fees


will be entered for the landlord. The sheriff will
post a notice at the apartment that requires you
to vacate in 24 hours. If you do not vacate within
24 hours, the sheriff will remove you and your
personal property from the apartment

What can happen
if I don't pay rent?
Failure to pay rent is the quickest way to
be evicted. The landlord will serve a notice
demanding payment of rent or possession of
the apartment. If you fail to comply with the
demand within three days, excluding week-
ends and holidays, eviction proceedings may.
be started. Neither surrender of the apart-
ment nor eviction ends your liability for rent.
You should immediately contact an attorney
upon receipt of a three-day notice.

Can I be evicted for any
other reasons?
Yes. Your lease can be terminated if you
violate any lease terms, rules and regulations,
or the Act. If your lease is terminated and you
do not vacate the apartment, the landlord may
immediately file for your eviction.
Termination begins with a 7-day notice.
Your options depend on whether the violations
are classified as "curable" or "noncurable."
If you receive either type of notice, you
should immediately contact an attorney.
Neither termination of your lease, nor your
eviction from the apartment ends your liabil-
ity for rent.
Curable violations:
You will be given seven days to correct a
curable violation. Curable violations include


unauthorized pets, guests, or parking, or
the failure to keep the apartment clean and
sanitary. If you repeat the violation within
12 months, you will not be given another
chance.
Noncurable violations:
The landlord may terminate your lease
with a 7-day notice without giving you a
chance to correct a noncurable violation.
Noncurable violations include deliberate de-
struction or misuse of the landlord's property
or a continued, unreasonable disturbance.

Can I be evicted if I pay
"my" rent and my room-
mates don't?
Usually. Most leases provide that the
tenants are jointly and severally liable for the
entire rent. This means the landlord can evict
you unless the full rent is paid.
It is possible for you to sue your room-
mates in small claims court to collect their
share of the rent and utilities. A written
roommate agreement will be helpful in prov-
ing your case in court.
Given the difficulty of collecting money on
a judgment quickly, the best thing you can do
is obtain new roommates.

So what if I get sued,
I have no money!
Any judgment for money damages is en-
forceable for at least 20 years and earns inter-
est. A judgment may be enforced by seizing
your wages, bank accounts, or your personal
property. A.judgment will also adversely af-
fect your credit rating.

Nelson smiles wide


on UF special teams


* THEJUNIOR SPARKED
THE GATORS WITH TWO,
PUNTS DOWNED INSIDE
THE 1-YARD LINE.

By BRYAN APP
.,Alligator Staff Writer
bapp@alligator.org

If you knew what made Reggie
Nelson happy, you wouldn't want
to make him mad.
It's not that he's a bad guy. All it
takes is a glance at his ever-present
smile to figure that one out.
Just stay out of his way on
Saturday, and everything will be
just fine. But step on his 100-by-
53-yard lawn, and his smile won't
look all that pretty.
"I love hitting," said the UF cor-
nerback with a chuckle. "Hitting,
smiling and going back out there
to do it again."
That's because he's a football
player a hungry football player,
looking to finally make a name for
himself in Gainesville.
So far, he seems to be doing a
pretty good job.
As the Gators' offense floun-
dered against- Mississippi State
on Saturday, the first-year junior
helped construct a special teams
extravaganza, recovering a fum-
bled punt and setting up a pair of
safeties with two punts downed
inside the 1-yard line.
Not bad for a guy who played
the last two seasons at Coffeyville
(Kansas) Community College.
"Reggie did both of them?"
asked UF coach Urban Meyer
about Nelson's pair of downed
punts. "What a football player he
is. I" tell you, he hits you and he
smiles. That's a hell of a concept.
Reggie Nelson is a heck of a foot-
ball player."
Perhaps that gridiron grin
is what Bulldogs return man
Jonathan Lowe saw just before
he muffed a punt inside his own
15, with Nelson .screaming right
toward his head.

Maybe Mississippi State quar-
terback Michael Hepig could ex-
plain the terror of Nelson's pearly
whites after the cornerback twice
gave him a worm's eye view of
Florida Field.
At 6-foot-i, 175 pounds, Nelson
might not look too imposing. But
Gators linebacker Brandon Siler
knows a headhunter when he
sees one.
"He's great. He comes off that
edge, and he's coming to get you,"
said Siler of the Gators' nickel
back. "And he packs a punch too.
You would think with a little guy
like that, he doesn't, but he does."
Credit that
N-e tenacity to two
years of foot-
ball purgatory
in Coffeyville,

enrolled after
failing to gain
entry into UF
Nelson in 2003 due to
academic issues.
Now, Nelson, the Gators' No. 3
cornerback, must make the most of
any opportunity.
"Every chance I get, I just go
out there and make the bes t of
it," said Nelson, who works more
with the special teams than the
defense.
And that kind of work ethic has
made Nelson a popular figure in
the UF locker room.
In the words of defensive end
Jeremy Mincey, Nelson is the
Gators' "sixth man."
While he might not see most of
the snaps on Saturdays, his team-
mates can rely on him to make
plays after those that he does.
"I love Reggie Nelson,' Mincey
said. "He's one of my favorite
players on the team. He comes
with his A-game every game. He
doesn't play as much, but every
time he does he makes a huge
impact. I love it every time he's in
there. I can always count on him,
and that's a large part of it-ac-
countability."

_..Injuries plague offense


Andy Aplcella / Alligator
Quarterback Chris Leak looks for an open receiver against Mississippi State on Saturday. Following
the game, Coach Urban Meyer revealed that Leak hadn't practiced all week.



Leak fights through injury


* A SECRET SHOULDER
INJURY KEPT THE JUNIOR
FROM PRACTICING

By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org

This was the kind of play UF
skeptics had sneered about.
Chris Leak, regarded as a far
better pocket-passer than runner,
chugged to his right then pitched
the ball to Chad Jackson. Jackson
wheeled ahead for six yards.
Meanwhile Leak, his right shoul-
der leading the way, was crushed
into the turf by Mississippi State
defensive back Kevin Dockery.
Leak's arm dangling from his
shoulder, he straggled off the
field. There was one prevailing
assumption among players: Leak
was done.
"The fans were thinking the
same thing," receiver Dallas Baker
said.
The truth?
Leak was done last Saturday


when his shoulder was bruised
against Alabama. A week later,
after Leak completed just 18 of
33 passes, Coach Urban Meyer
revealed his dirty little secret:
"I don't want to keep things
from you I also don't want the
opponent to know but Chris
Leak didn't practice this week,"
'U Meyer said.
eaInstead it
was all hand-
offs for the
junior, who
played with
a semi-numb
shoulder against
Leak the Bulldogs
after receiving a
pain-killing shot before the game.
"A real courageous guy, a
tough guy," Meyer said. "He
missed some throws and hope-
fully we'll get him ready for this
week coming up. I think he's ok."
Or is he? Meyer said Leak
aggravated a shoulder injury
suffered in last season's Florida
State game. Leak denied such
claims.


"That's a totally different deal,"
Leak said. "It's just something that
aggravates you, but it's nothing
more than a bruise."
For a Gators team that has
scored four total offensive
touchdowns against the -likes
of Tennessee, Alabama and
Mississippi State, it seems like
there could be nothing worse than
the possibility of a chronic injury
for Leak.
Saturday, the junior looked
confused at times. At others, the
shoulder dearly fitted Leak with
a straitjacket. He overthrew his
receivers on several attempts,
including an errant pass to a
streaking Nyan Boateng in the
end zone.
He also threw two more inter-
ceptions, bringing his total to four
in the last two games.
"Of course you want to correct
that and make sure that you're
making the right reads and that
guys are making the right routes,"
Leak said. "The first thing I have
to do is protect the ball. Everything
else will get cleared."

On Sunday, Coach Urban Meyer
revealed that injuries and depth are
what concerns him most as his No.
11 Gators (5-1, 3-1 SEC) begin prepa-
ration to face No. 10 Louisiana State
on Saturday.
"We are not a great team.
We just have a few players
who are playing great."
Urban Meyer
UF Football Coach

"I said it before and I'll say it
again," Meyer said. "We are not
a great team. We just have a few
players who are playing great. Right
now though, we need to get those
players some rest because the game
against LSU will be fast-paced."
Meyer applauded defensive
end Jeremy Mincey for his effort
on Saturday. As fellow defensive
end Ray McDonald continued to
recover from a knee injury, Mincey
registered two sacks and 10 tackles
against Mississippi State.
The good news for the defense is
that McDonald may be back on the


field sooner than expected.
"The doctors have only had posi-
tive things to say about Ray," Meyer
said. "He could make a cotribu-
tion this week against LSU, but for
sure he will be back by the Georgia
game."
On the other side of the ball, an
injury to junior Jemalle Cornelius
has further limited an offense al-
ready plagued by the season-long
loss of Andre Caldwell.
"You take [Cornelius] out and all
we have in experienced receivers is
Chad Jackson and Dallas Baker,"
Meyer said. "It is impossible to run
any offense with only two receiv-
ers."
Cornelius suffered an ankle
sprain in the second half against
Alabama and did not see any action
against Mississippi State. Jackson
suffered a knee injury and Baker
had to leave the field during the
third quarter due to cramping.
Excluding Jackson and Baker,
UF's stable of wide receivers have
combined to catch only four passes
the last two weeks.
"Ideally, you want five thor-
oughbreds out there," Meyer said.
"We have about 35 plays with five
or six wide receiver sets, so you can
see why the passing game is having
problems."


Gators to play a new game
You want a breakdown of UF's 35-9 victory against
S Mississippi State?
Sorry, you won't find it here because the game never
occurred.
UF student Joe Schmo: "You liar, I was there. I showed up late
after a heavy night of boozing, trying to wash away the painful
memories of Wayne Brady. I even exhibited a dose of interest when
-I booed the Gators in the second quarter."
Once again, there was no game on
Saturday. You see, the Gators are 0-0 and
about to embark on a two-game season. Call
it Suicideball because it'lTbe the most in-
tense regular season-in the history of sports.
Here are the rules to Suicideball:
Andrew a. The Gators must finish undefeated; a
Abramson .500 season won't cut it.
Drew's Control b. Both opponents will be ranked in the
aabramson@alligator.org top 10.
c. Neither matchup will occur in
Gainesville: the first game will take place about 600 miles away
in a stadium nicknamed Death Valley. Game No. 2 will take place
against Georgia in Jacksonville; only half of the crowd will be per-
mitted to wear orange and blue.
And you thought the NFL was the most exciting brand of
football.

reeling Tennessee team, the Gators have no
room for failure in Southeastern Conference
play. They have to win out.
The SEC may not be sold on Urban Meyer
quite yet, but this isn't the Ron Zook era, ei-
ther. Basically, Vanderbilt and South Carolina
equal easy UF victories.
So that means this upcoming two-game


By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
aabramson@alligator.org
If Urban Meyer's offense
truly isn't ready for Southeastern
Conference play, somebody forgot to
relay the message to Dallas Baker.
The spring superstar, the receiver
with all the big-play potential, the
player that seemed to have an un-
derachiever patch sewn on his jersey,
has finally emerged. What a time to
shine.
With two of UF's top receivers
out with injury and UF's offense
stuck somewhere between neutral
and reverse, Baker has surprisingly
become quarterback Chris Leak's go-
to guy. After proving to be UF's only
legitimate threat in a loss to Alabama
a week ago, Baker once again hit the
century mark in UF's 35-9 victory
against Mississippi State, scoring
a touchdown and receiving a solid
endorsement from Meyer.
"Dallas Baker played a tremen-
dous game," Meyer said. "I think
he's turned into our most polished'
receiver."
Baker finished with a career-high
123 receiving yards on seven recep-
tions while adding a timely touch-


stretch will determine whether or not the
Gators make their first SEC championship
game appearance in five years.
A season that began with so much hype and
anticipation could end in an awfully familiar
and depressing place like Tampa, Orlando or
Atlanta (Peach Bowl, not Sugar Bowl).
Blame -those pesky Georgia Bulldogs
- a team that somehow improved after losing
David Greene and David Pollack because
this doesn't seem like one of those seasons


down that gave UF a comfortable
19-3 lead midway through the third
quarter.
"Honestly, ift feels like a dream,"
Baker said. "I've been trying so hard
to step up my play from the fall to
the spring, and now that I'm finally"
doing it, it's like, 'wow.'"
"Dallas Baker played a
tremendous game. I think
he's turned into our most
polished receiver."
SUrban Meyer
UF football coach

Baker has been the unofficial
MVP in the last three spring games,
wowing the crowd with acrobatic
catches.
Yet, when the scores count and
the opponent is no longer a .team-
mate, Baker has faded into the back-
ground, while players like Andre
Caldwell and Chad Jackson have
become SEC stars.
'He kind of came in as a fresh-
man not really knowing his place
and now he's really fitting in," center
Mike Degory said. "His eye is there


where a two-loss team will stroll into Atlanta
for the SEC title game.
Call it the cruelty and beauty of college
football all wrapped in a burrito supreme, but
no matter how much or how little the Gators
have improved this year, they already suffered
an SEC loss to Alabama.
Enter Suicideball.
The first half of the season begins
Saturday with a trip to Louisiana State.
Logic says the season will end there for UF,


and that's the thing that maybe
sometimes people question him on.
We really see what he's doing now,
and he's producing."
It's been nearly a year-long odys-
sey for Baker, whose career hit a low
point last season after a devastating
and controversial personal foul
against Tennessee.
Baker said Meyer and receivers
coach Billy Gonzales have chal-
lenged him to become more of a man
on and off the field while becoming
more assertive on game day.
"I can't be one of those guys that
likes to sit back in the shadows and
think, 'Well, we need Chad to make
a play, or Chris or DeShawn Wynn,'"
Baker said. "I have to be one of those
guys that comes in when my number
is called and make a play."
But are back-to-back 100-yard
games really that impressive consid-
ering that Baker underachieved for
more than two seasons?
Baker doesn't believe he'll suffer
a relapse. When he hits the practice
field on Monday, he won't remember
the 123 yards and the touchdown.
"When I go out to practice I'm go-
ing to act like I had only two catches
for negative 3 yards," Baker said.


but after Tennessee's 20-point come back in
Baton Rouge, you can forget logic. Not that
Suicideball is about, logic; it's more about
blood, guts, and a spread offense still in the
works. Suicideball wasn't meant to be easy.
It's a daunting challenge for the Gators, and it
will define Meyer's first year at UF.
And thanks to this abbreviated season, all
it takes is two games before we know if the
Gators are more likely to spend New Year's in
Atlanta (Peach Bowl) or Atlanta (Sugar Bowl).
