Kanye West performs tonight
* O'DOME WILL HONOR
REQUEST FOR ALCOHOL.
By STEPHEN MAGRUDER
Rapper Kanye West and UF
have at least one thing in com-
mon: They say no to Coke.
West, scheduled to perform at
the Stephen C. O'Connell Center
tonight at 7:30, is sponsored by
Pepsi and has requested that no
Coke products be placed in his
West's rider, the list of needs
and amenities requested by per-
formers, details how everything
is to be set up for the show, both
onstage and behind the scenes.
The rider includes stage
equipment specifications, se-
curity personnel and a detailed
catering menu covering three
full meals, three dressing rooms
and a bus full of people.
O'Connell Center Director
Lionel Dubay signed the contract
with Fantasma Productions, the
booking agency responsible for
bringing West's "Touch the Sky"
tour to Gainesville.
On Dubay agreed to
CampUS pay West $115,000
to perform, along
with special guests Common,
Fantasia and Keyshia Cole.
West's orchestra will be paid
an additional $5,000.
To hold the concert, Fantasma
Productions agreed to take out
$1 million in insurance and pay
UF $2,300 for the first four hours
of the O'Connell Center's use.
Security arrangements in-
dude 40 security officers, 11
University Police officers and
five or six parking patrollers.
Reminiscent of Snoop Dogg's
February concert rider, West re-
quested wildly varied items for
his dressing room: three tubes

Local fossil diggers unearth past

Kristin Nichols/ Alligator
Volunteer Phyllis Saarinen digs through a layer of clay Wednesday
morning at UF's.Tapir Challenge site.
Volunteers working alongside museum employees
hope to break a world record after discovering remains of
mammals more than 2 million years old Tuesday, as they
kicked off a fossil dig lasting until December.
The Tapir Challenge, a major fossil excavation run by
the Division of Vertebrate Paleontology of the Florida
Museum of Natural History, gives volunteer fossil diggers
the chance to help excavate a 40-yard by 40-yard site at a
limestone mine in northeast Newberry, the town just west
"It's likely that we will find over 100 individual skel-
etons," said Richard Hulbert, vertebrate paleontology
collections manager for the museum. "No fossil site in the
world has ever been like that."
The Tapir Challenge got its name by the high number of
tapirs hoofed, plant-eating mammals distantly related
to horses and rhinos that have been, and will be, exca-
vated from the site.
"We're trying to see who can set the world record for
who can find the most tapirs at one site," Hulbert said.
Along with tapirs, Hulbert said specimens of porcu-
pines, giant armadillos, giant ground sloths, fish, frogs,
snakes, birds and elephant-like fossils would be extracted.
"A number of these specimens are the best of the spe-
cies that we have ever found worldwide," Hulbert said.
The site of the excavation is more than 2 million years
old, Hulbert said. The site is dated by comparing fossils
found within the site to other dated fossils from other ex-
cavation sites around the country.
"Presently, we are in the bed of a lake," Hulbert said.
"We are in the middle of something like Lake Alice."
Employees of the museum have been working since
May on the site named Haile 7G. The volunteer-assisted
portion of the excavation will continue to mid-December.
"We tend to concentrate our volunteers in the two dry
seasons, spring and fall," Hulbert said. "The worst things

Gator dubbed 'cleanest comic'
* BRANDON BROOKS WILL
STAR IN A NATIONAL TV COM-
MERCIAL FOR OLD SPICE.
By HEATHER RAPP
Alligator Contributing Writer
Witnesses reported a man being
chased around by film crews at the
Swamp wearing only a white bath-
robe and swim trunks Saturday.
It might sound like a bad prank,
but for 19-year-old Brandon Brooks,
it was all because of his newfound
Brooks was one of 17 college
students frorr across the country
chosen to star in his own national
television commercial for Old Spice
America's Cleanest Comic
Competition judges held audi-
tions Oct. 6 on the Reitz Union
Contestants had to tell their favor-
ite joke with one catch: As the name
suggests, it had to be clean.
Standing in front of the camera,
Brooks spontaneously recalled a joke
he'd heard a long time ago but said
he wants to keep the joke confiden-
tial until the commercial airs.
"It was about a golfer. I'll tell you
that much," he said.
A grin crept across his face as he
recalled the audition.
"It also included me just acting
silly in front of the camera," he said.
The sophomore's joke was a hit,
and the punchline landed him a spot
in a national commercial for High
Endurance Body Wash by Old Spice.
Film crews flew to Gainesville
from Chicago on Friday for the film-
ing, which took five and a half hours.
Cameramen followed the robe-clad
Brooks as he interacted with crowds
at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium during
the Homecoming game Saturday.
Other parts of the commercial were
filmed at the Stephen C. O'Connell
Student "It was all just fun and
Life games to me," Brooks
said. "It wasn't anything
The commercial' will air nation-
ally at least six times during college
football games on ABC and ESPN.
Brooks said he will make his debut
But the contest doesn't end there.
Viewers are invited to visit
www.OldSpice.com and vote for
who they think is America's cleanest
comic; the winner will receive an all-
inclusive vacation to Las Vegas.
"It's kind of an 'American Idol'-
type deal," he said.
But Brooks said he is just enjoying
his 15 minutes of fame.
"Not everybody gets to have this
experience, and I thank God that I
did," he said.
Being the center of attention and
in front of the camera is nothing new
for the South Carolina native.
"All my life, you know when I
was a little kid, I used to be the class
clown," Brooks said.
While this was his first national
television commercial, he appeared
in several local commercials when
he was 15.
He was cast as an extra in the
show "Dawson's Creek" when he
was 16, and he returned in another
episode to deliver a one-liner.
Brooks was a local star by 17
when he appeared in "Keep it Real,"
a documentary film educating school
children about the dangers of drunk-
en driving and drugs.
But resumes can be deceiving.
This microbiology and cell science
major has his heart set on medical
"Just seeing some of the things
people go through these days, I can't
see myself being anything but a doc-
tor," he said.
The comedy might end there, but
his philanthropy goesfurther.
"Then if I became an actor, if I got
paid a lot of money, I want to help
donate that to some other funds,
too," he said.
In his mind, both paths lead to the
"I like putting smiles on people's
faces," he said.

Lew Andrew Welge, a student in
the College of Education counselor
education program, can be found
singing and playing his guitar on
the plaza throughout the semester.
At 8:15 Wednesday morning, he
serenaded students on their way
to class with his rendition of Tina
Turner's "Proud Mary."
"Life's a dance, and we're al-
ways representing, so here's a guy
representing performance art, if you
will," Welge said of himself.
He is 50 years young, he said,
and it is his outlook on life that
keeps his spirits high.
The first day he sang and played
his guitar on the plaza last August, a
policeman asked him to stop singing
so he could check his identification.
"He interrupted my song, 'City
alligator of New Orleans,'" he said.

Society. has taught us to repress
the "togetherness force we strive
for," he said.
Perhaps, he said, that's why
some people choose not to respond
to his performances.
"Everyone wants to keep a low
profile," he said. "I can't, because
I'm 6 (foot) 8."
Despite these tendencies brought
on by society, Welge said he believes
his music has a positive effect.
"I get smiles all the time from
people," he said. "I love it."

After the bones are reconstructed, they are
given a permanent catalog number that will go
into a database at the museum.
The museum's vertebrate collection exceeds
200,000 specimens, making it one of the largest in
the United States, Hulbert said.
Hulbert said the first 1 percent of the site that
had been excavated had produced eight individu-
al skeletons, including an ancient porcupine.
Most of the eight skeletons were found during
the summer months.
"That's when we talked to the mine managers,"
Hulbert said. "They were very generous, and will
allow for us to dig here for two or three years."
Hulbert said an agreement has been formed
between the paleontologists and the mine manag-
ers that once the fossils are excavated, they will
become sole property of the museum.
Hulbert said the dig doesn't ask much of the
volunteers, who work with small screwdrivers
and sometimes their bare hands, to remove the
clay and rocks around the fossils.
' "We literally' get volunteers ages 18 to 80,"
Hulbert said. "They just have to be fit enough to

Self-defense law is
The Editorial Board is going to stand its ground.
Just don't try to break into the Alligator offices we
might shoot you with our vintage sawed-off shotgun.
Continuing with our conservative streak this week, we see
some benefits to the recently enacted law that redefines self-
That's right in principle, it's not all bad.
The most important, and most debated, change is that
residents and visitors of Florida are now allowed to "stand their
ground" when faced with "imminent" danger. Previously, the
accepted interpretation was a person should attempt a retreat
before succumbing to violence.
We're behind this distinction when applied to homes. If
someone breaks into your home, you are allowed to defend
Too often in our society, the benefit of the doubt is given to
Of course, those days of bored teenagers breaking into
a neighbor's house for a case of beer are effectively over.
Although we would hope such a prank wouldn't fall under a
reasonable cause for a homeowner to feel in danger of his life
and thus open fire with his AK-47.
We can't promise that it won't. But we can look at the law
and realize that, if judged fairly, such a situation would not
favor the owner.
We hate to see citizens take laws into their own hands, but
we would also hate for a victim to have to ponder the nuances
of a law in a dangerous situation.
The law also extends to a person's right to fight "force with
force" when attacked anywhere, and allows deadly force if that
person "reasonably" believes that it is necessary to save his or
There are a thousand different ways this could go awry for
both parties. But if we look at it from an individual perspective,
we realize that this is exactly the kind of right we would want if
we were put into such a compromising situation.
Basically, if we were dealing only with honest, sane citizens,
this law would be perfectly valid. Everyone should have the
right to defend his or her life.
Alternately, if we were dealing only with honest, sane courts,
this law would be acceptable.
Unfortunately, neither situation exists. Yet it's impossible to
write laws around the justice of courts.
A law on defense has to be vague, and the law was vague
before the gun-happy got to it. It was always based on whether
a person believes he's in danger because legislation can't be
specific to every case.
We want to keep our rights to protect ourselves, but we also
want to limit those who might unlawfully hurt us. The only
solution is a just court system, and that doesn't exist.
So the Editorial Board believes in the right to face danger
when it knocks on our door, but we're realistic in the downfalls
that come with it. We don't want a law that could allow a mur-
derer to go frpe, but we also don't want a law that boxes in our
choices in survival situations.
So rather than too vague, perhaps the law is not vague
enough. By specifying that every intruder into a home can be
considered a bodily threat, the law includes all types of unfore-
If the homeowner has a gun and the intruder has nothing, is
it really fair for the former to kill the latter?
It depends on the situation, and that's for a court to decide.
And we are afraid of what side the court will take.
But when we lose faith in a court to uphold the rights of
citizens, we cannot blame it on the shortcomings of legisla-

SG election plays li
Unfairness in Student Governmment elections is not new.
Because the political system is a never-ending
saga of the same students, groups and Greek organi-
zations, it's a wonder we still have elections at all.
This is by no means an exhaustive list of election-time
improprieties, but rest assured I could fill the whole paper
FALL 2005: In addition to the complaints we discussed
Wednesday, the commission found Rawlings-area Gator
candidate William Perry guilty of destroying an Impact cam-
paign ad, after he grabbed it out of Impact candidate Victor
Bard's hands, and placing a paid political ad without notice.
His punishment. a reprimand and formal apology to Bard.
Bard, however, was fined $25 for campaigning door-
to-door. If anything, we would think violence would, take
SPRING 2005: The Gator Party was found not guilty
after a widely circulated e-mail reported promises of posi-
tions in SG in exchange for Gator votes.
Before the election, the SG Supreme Court met in secret to
reject a petition that would allow students to vote via Internet
in future elections, claiming uncertainty over whether the pe-
titioners were asking for an initiative or a referendum.
Of course, the document used the word "initiative" four
times and never even mentioned a referendum.
That decision was eventually overturned because the
meeting violated open-meeting laws. In true SG fashion, it
was too late to resubmit the initiative for ballot placement.
SPRING 2002: We were actually supposed to have online
voting as early as this election, but a late-night ruling by the
Board of Masters declared the Internet ballot illegal.
SPRING 2001: Too many to mention, but here are two of
the juicier ones.
A member of Delta Delta Delta Sorority told her sisters
that the Fusion Party offered to put their names in a raffle for
a $15 Victoria's Secret gift certificate if they voted on the first
day of elections. The commission did not see this as serious.
ke a broken record
After Fuision Party presidential
candidate Marc Adler defeated SUN
Party candidate Gil Sanchez by only
17 votes, the Masters issued yet an-
other late-night order allowing the
Student Senate to validate the elec-
Mike Gimignani tionwithout a recount.
Editorial Notebook SPRING 2000: During an espe-
email@example.com cially heated election, the Impact
Party (then Greek-controlled) faced
complaints of releasing false infor-
mation against its opponents in the Florida Students Party.
In response to a defamatory e-mail that appeared on a
widely circulated listserv, the commission actually invali-
dated the election, only to be overturned by the Masters.
SPRING 1996: After the first SG election featured rela-
tively low turnout, commission-set polling places for the
runoff changed across campus. For instance, the Southwest
Recreation Center precinct was moved to the Levin College
of Law suspiciously dose to Fraternity Row.
SPRING 1995: The day before the election, fliers appeared
on campus, complete with phony police records alleging that
candidate Charles Grapski was a convicted child molester.
Grapski's complaints to the Elections Commission, stu-
dent courts and the UF administration were rejected, often
without a hearing or review.
Here's where the similarity stops: Instead of repeatedly
ramming himself against brick walls within the university,
he instead sued in circuit court and won.
We use the Grapski example often, but it is important
because he actually succeeded. That he had to take his argu-
ments outside UF to prevail is lamentable, but perhaps the
best evidence we have to show that the officials who decide
election issues are not impartial.
I hope this shows that we're not pulling our concerns out
of thin air.

Andrew Bare's Wednesday

the Constitution is a changing
document. It was changed in 1865
to outlaw slavery, in 1920 to allow
women to vote and as late as 1992
to limit congressional pay raises.
Justices must use some stan-
dard in judgment, either of the
law or not of the law. If rulings
are not based in law but personal
opinion or conviction, there is no
common standard, as everyone
has different beliefs. Without some
standard there is only tyranny,
however well-meaning it may be.
Justices who do not follow the
Constitution, as written and in-

our free society.

Dracula sucks at the Hipp on Friday
By GABRIELLA VIGIER
Don't have enough money for Universal Studios' Halloween
Horror Nights? You can do better for half the price.
This Friday, "Dracula" will make its debut at the Hippodrome
Theatre, and it will be a bloody good performance.
The show includes spouts of death, suspense-filled scenes, sex
and seduction even animal lust.
While the storyline of "Dracula" is familiar to most, the choice
of delivery that director Lauren Caldwell has chosen leaves eyes
wide open and satisfied.
"'Dracula' is the one that we turned upside-down," Caldwell
Caldwell directed another vampire performance eight years
ago at the Hippodrome.
"We thought enough time had passed to bring it up again,"
Highly detailed scenery and interesting interpretations of cos-
tume add to the show's enjoyment.
The performance is approached as an old genre film and has
so much visual imagery. Performers in the play include grad stu-
dents and recent UF graduates.
Ryan Burbank, 25, a first-year student in the Masters of Fine
Arts Acting Program at UF, said theater is a good place to get your
"I think people underestimate how much more scary things are
live," Burbank said.
But the live-effect isn't the only thing "Dracula" has going for
The play is filled with so much detail that the audience may not
catch every single thing, but it will be worth seeing, said Garret
Bantom, a recent graduate of UF's MFA program.
"They may feel like they got it, but they may have to come
back," Bantom said.
Rachel Roberts, a 26-year-old UF alumna, said she agrees and
that every "Dracula" storyline can be told differently.
The actors, however, appreciate how Caldwell presented the
She even had a way of hiding details that worked in the final
"She almost kept it a secret until we were ready for them,"
There are more interesting facts behind the scenes as well.
For instance, the actor playing the role of Count Dracula is
Robin Bloodworth, who says playing vampires runs in the family.
His father played a vampire back in the '80s.
Also, scenic designer Mihai Ciupe is originally from Romania,
which includes the region of Transylvania, the birthplace of

subject gives a lot of freedom."
Don't expect him to tell you about any encounters with vam--
pires though; he doesn't believe in them.
"Dracula" is not for the timid and definitely not for kids.
Going further on the sex and seduction, there are not just men
and women showing affection for each other.
The actors are excited to present the play at the Hippodrome
beginning this Friday.
"It's as sexy as it is bloody," Burbank said.

For example, the new "dual
analog" swinging adds more
complexity to what has always
been a too-simple recreation of a
complex game, but since players
will most often want to strike the
middle of their ball, no one will
ever use it.
And the: new courses are as
distinct and beautiful as any that
have graced a Tiger Woods game,
and yet some old favorites are no-
The biting commentary of past
games returns as mean as ever,
but mostly because so much of it
is the same. Tiger even talks now,
but all he says are short quips like
."Yes!" or "Come on!"
Most modified about this
version of the is its reinvented
putting system. Previously, the
game has always presented play-
ers with a caddy tip that simply
and shoot for ..
the right spot.
The new system
does the same
thing, only in a new, worse way.
Instead of a caddy tip, golfers
use a grid that covers the curves
of the green and highlights its
slope with moving dots. Anyone
dominating the Tiger Woods se-
ries in the past will find this sys-
tem inexact and frustrating, but
can master it with patience.
Kelman with this new
)on't Hate the Playa system is that,
email@example.com in a game that
presentation, it transforms the
pristifie greens of Pebble Beach
into graph paper.
In addition to graphics de-
termining type of shot, club,
weather, terrain, "Gamebreaker"
and elevation, "Tiger Woods PGA
Tour '06" feels like you are aiming
with a targeting computer, not a
On the whole, Electronic Arts'
"Tiger Woods PGA Tour '06" just
doesn't feel very polished. It's
like they took last year's model,
stripped its ,glossy coat, tinkered
with some parts and forgot to re-
finish with the glossy coat.
At best, some elements were
left alone, so the game still sports
its "GameFace" feature, snazzy
music and beautiful graphics.
Fires, stunts, vengeance make 'Ghost' comic hot
If you saw a guy with his skull on fire,
you'd probably give him your atten-
tion. If you see a comic book about a guy
with his skull on fire, you had better do the
Especially when Garth Ennis and Clayton
Crain give everybody's favorite Spirit of
Vengeance a face lift in the new Marvel
Knights "Ghost Rider" miniseries.
And it's hot, too. Issue No. 1 sold out, but
don't worry if you missed it because a direc-
tor's cut hit shelves Wednesday along with
issue No. 2. The director's cut is chock-full
of bonus features, like Ennis' original pitch
for the series and covers by Crain, motoring
in at 48 pages.
Parts of the first issue play catch-up
on Ghost Rider's origin, so don't worry if
you're new to the game.
In a nutshell, motorcycle stunt-rider
Johnny Blaze sells his soul to the devil to
save his friend Crash from cancer, but ironi-
cally, Crash, not knowing
he's been cured of cancer,
dies attempting a danger-
ous motorcycle stunt.
Blaze ends up paying the t
devil his dues, and through
a turn of events becomes the Ghost Rider,
but now he's trapped in hell.
Ennis, known for the gallows humor
in his twisted, edgy stories "Preacher"
and "Punisher," weaves the tale of two
angels, Daniel and Malachi, who have to
get Ghost Rider out of hell to stop Kazann,
one mean demon ready to wreak havoc on
unsuspecting mortals. Meanwhile both
heaven and hell have sent their own hunt-
ers, an archangel, Ruth
Karolena and a demon, Hoss, to
Bielecki clean up the mess.
Get Graphic "Ghost Rider" doesn't
firstname.lastname@example.org read like a Marvel book,
and& I don't mean that
in a bad way. You almost feel like you've
stumbled into "Hellblazer" or "Lucifer."
Marvel isn't notorious for dealing with
the realms of heaven and hell, so "Ghost
Rider" is actually a breath of fresh air and
a change from the normal superhero story.
Ennis really balances believe-ability and
the fantastic to create an appropriate super-
But let's not forget Clayton Crain, whose
unique art style, combining digital comput-
er techniques with the classic mode, brands
"Ghost Rider" with a design that's both
mystical and creepy.
The six-issue series will wrap in early
2006, but before you buy a motorcycle and
light your head on fire, you'll get more

Sherman's march relived
If "The March" doesn't ensure E.L.
Doctorow a Nobel Prize in literature
sometime in the near future, I can't
imagine what would.
Though I try to approach the books I
review objectively, I have to admit that
my expectations were high for Doctorow's
latest novel, "The March," when I picked
I've been fond of Doctorow for a long
time. He taught me how much the con-
temporary novel was
capable of doing and
what the fictionalized
past could mean to the
His novels "Ragtime"
and "City of God" rank
high on my list of great American novels,
post-1965. Novels like "Billy Bathgate"
and "The Waterworks" are brilliant, high-
ly imagined works of historical fiction full
of personality and insight, not to mention
a deep sense of compassion and some
glimmer of hope for mankind. I enjoyed
"The March" just as I thought or maybe
hoped I would.
The novel is Doctorow's fictionalized
account of Union Gen. William Sherman's
devastating 60,000-man march through
the South at the end of the Civil War.
During that time, the general and his
troops destroyed or killed virtually every-
thing and everybody they came across.
It's a story of war and destruction,
sweeping in scope and hypnotic in tone.
The novel is narrated by a number of
different and wholly unique voices, all
of them forceful and, highly subjective,
which bring a particular perspective to the
The most interesting character in the
novel, and the closest we get to an actual
protagonist, is Pearl.
She is a light-skinned, newly freed
slave who joins Sherman's march and
falls helplessly and hopelessly in love
with a white Union soldier in the midst of
Sherman's relentless campaign.
James novel reminds me of
Fleming Francis Ford Coppola's
Off the Press "Apocalypse Now."
firstname.lastname@example.org Though Doctorow's
locale is the American
South during the Civil
War and not Southeast Asia at the height
of the Vietnam War, it has that same jar-
ring, nauseous feel to it.
It bombards us with images of annihi-
lated countryside and stark visions of a
relentless human war machine in progress,
which Doctorow imagines here as being
-more of a living organism than a machine,
a particularly modem life form entirely
dedicated to death and destruction.
A plethora of rambling voices slipping
into and finally fully emerging in confu-
sion and madness leaves us with an over-
whelming sense of the utter futility and
the human necessity of war and conquest.
I couldn't help but notice that Sherman
has more than a bit of Coppola's Col.
Kurtz in him, yet another brilliant man
driven crazy by power and trauma during
Crow hits, redboy worth it
She does it again lyrics
that are unforgettable, a
voice that seems to have no boundaries
and emotions that flows from every note.
When listening to this album, or any
other Sheryl Crow album, read along with
the lyrics. It enhances the experience.
"Bum like a cigarette hole inside my
head, reminding me not to forget words ...
words I'd never say."
Crow intrigues her listeners with lines
She has a vast vocal range, but she uses
her high range more in this album.
Though lower range has a certain smo-
kiness that is unique, and she should show
it off more.
The title track, "Wildflower," shows a
side of Crow that is haunting.
It is different from her traditional sound
- it's vulnerable.
Crow takes some worthwhile risks but
showcases what she does best an edgi-
ness sought by female performers.
A few more trips to her lower vocal
range would make the CD stronger, but
even without them, the CD is a hit.
The indie-folk sounds of
the instrumentals blend
with a voice built for the music. There are
no pieces missing from this band.
It's easy, however, for enthusiasm for the
music to die halfway through the album.
This album is monogamous to the
band's sound understandably because
this it's debut album.
It's an introduction to the band.
Hopefully, the next one will have some
That is not to say the album is not enjoy-
Interest is perked with lyrics like "You
are the light of my life, I am your lamp-
This band is comparable to Ani
DiFranco and The Cranberries. I say The
Cranberries mainly because of the opening
track, "In Your Head."
Caution to males: There are some femi-
nist undertones in this album, but nothing
that threatens your manhood.
Worth a listen.

S L Leak's injury concerns Meyer
UF might need to turn to Portis
Tim Casey/ Alligator Staff
UF quarterback Chris Leak is examined by team physician Pete Indeli-
cato during the first quarter of the Gators' 35-3 win against Mississippi
State after re-injuring his right shoulder.
By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
It was 9 a.m. Tuesday on
campus, and Chris Leak, instead
of shouldering a backpack, wore
a mammoth ice pack on his
A precautionary decision or a
necessary one? Leak's health is
UF's burning topic as Louisiana
State draws nearer.
"I'm very concerned," Coach
Urban Meyer said.
No body part has become
more scrutinized, analyzed or
important as Leak's shoulder
midway through the season.
UF's conference title hopes rest
on whether Leak will remain
aggressive enough to run the
full spread arsenal Saturday.
Offensive coordinator Dan
Mullen admits UF shied away
from deep passes against
Mississippi State because of the
shoulder, but Leak appears a
full go for Death Valley.
"The shoulder feels real
good, and I've just been focus-
ing on our game plan for LSU
and executing it," Leak said. "It
happens all the time in football
- I mean guys have MCL sprains
and a lot worse than what I got.
It's just one of those football
While the shoulder has
hindered Leak's durability, his
arm has been fine at the start of
practices. But the more throws
he logs, the sorer his shoulder
becomes. It was this reality that
prompted a numbing cortisone
shot prior to the Bulldogs'
If Leak somehow re-ag-
gravates his injury Saturday,
backup Josh Portis will be asked
to run the entire offense.
"I'm ready to be the quar-
terback of the University of
Florida," Portis said. "That's
what I said at the beginning
of the season. You never know
what's going to happen, so you
just have to be ready when your
number is called."
"The shoulder feels real
good, and I've just been
focusing on our game plan
for LSU and executing it."
Arriving on campus as a
Meyer recruit in December,
Portis has been dubbed as the
team's future quarterback by
hoards of fans. Others gripe
about his minimal playing time,
saying his speed holds the key
to the true spread offense. While
the team is clearly Leak's, Portis
has prepared for the worst-case
"Chris is my boy," he said.
"I wish the best for him. I ask
him every day how he's doing.
I hope he gets better. We sure
"I'll pray for him every night,
but if my number' is called, I
have to get them."
Mullen has been, working
with Portis to increase his com-
fort zone with more facets of the
offense. Still, at times, it is obvi-
ous he has miles to go.
"He's a freshman and you're
going to have plenty of growing
pains with him," Mullen said.
"He's going to make young-
guy mistakes. He hasn't seen all
those live looks. "
The one knock on Portis
has been his passing. The re-
serve continued to inflate his
gaudy rushing numbers against
Mississippi State, but as it
stands, he has logged 26 runs to
"He's getting there, but he's
an 18-year old who's a really
athletic running quarterback
out of high school," Mullen
said. "You play to his strengths;
you're just going to use every-
thing he does best.
"You don't see a lot of fresh-
men come in and light it up in
the drop-back passing game."
You also don't see many
teams stay on course during
mid-season if their starting arm
. goes down. Leak understands
that concept and doesn't plan
on going anywhere.
"I just love being out there
with my teammates and that's
the main thifig," Leak said. "I
never want to let those guys
down, and I want to be out there
with them having fun."
Gators need aggressive defensive line to make Tigers bait on bayou
A according to the T-shirts they sport, it's
no one but them.
. That mantra could prove true when
the Gators make their first trip to Louisiana
State since handing the Tigers the only loss of
their 2003 championship season.
The Tennessee win is long gone, and this
week's game will decide UF's fate.
The Gators, a 6-point underdog, will need a
struggling offense to put up big points against
the most blitz-happy, aggressive defense'in
the conference. -However, LSU Coach Les
Miles is already hearing whispers of being the
conference's next Zooker.
While I see the Gators offense sputtering
early, this game stacks up favorably to the last
time the Gators came up big in the bayou.
In 2003, they were big underdogs on the
road, and experts gave them zero chance
at winning. UF was uncertain- at the run-
ning back position, and defensive end Ray
McDonald was flirting with returning from an
injury in remarkable time.
For Meyer to have any shot of coaching this
team to victory, the defensive line will have to
pressure quarterback JaMarcus Russell and
create turnovers, because it will be hard for the
offense to move the ball consistently 80-yards
down the field on the ground.
The Gators' defensive front has played
lights out so far, and several players have
stepped their games up faster than the Swamp
filing out in the third
quarter of the home-
coming game. A zinger,
but I understand how
students had to get back
Eric Esteban to not doing anything.
Tenacious E Mr. Champions
email@example.com Club, aka senior Jeremy
Mincey, was named the
SEC Defensive Lineman
of the Week and is playing with a nonstop mo-
tor. Defensive tackle Marcus Thomas has been
playing like a college-level Warren Sapp, and
at linebacker, B-Siles has been nothing short of
an All-American as a sophomore.
But every member of the defense com-
bined might not be able to resuscitate the team
in front of a LSU home crowd still hankering
for the team's first win in Baton Rouge this
year, especially if the offense struggles behind
Leak's tender right shoulder.
UF's uncertainty at tailback should force
offensive coordinator Dan Mullen to use the
conference's deceptively top-ranked pass
offense to light up the SEC's worst, but in-
juries could limit the options. I wouldn't be
surprised in the least if the Gators dusted off
some trick plays, and if the offensive line steps
its game up to the level Meyer has asked. Then
the buzzards flying over Death Valley could
be dining on Tiger tail.

UF sweeps hapless Bulldogs

Wednesday, the fans will find
plenty of reasons to cheer.
In what was about as friend-

match-up could get, the No. 5
Gators (17-1, 7-0 Southeastern
Conference) defeated Georgia
(7-9, 2-4 SEC), 30-19, 30-19,
30-17, Wednesday night at the
Legall and McCray were
both All-Americans for the
Gators and played for UF
coach Mary Wise.
"I don't think it's ever fun
to play against your friends,"
Wise said. "But once the first
serve starts, you forget all
That could be a little more
difficult for McCray's sister,
Amber, who is UF's starting
?We know they are going
to come out, no matter
how their season's going,
and they are going to give
us their best shot."
UF outside hitter
Amber said that while she
enjoys defeating her sister's
team, she just relishes the op-
portunity to see her sister face-
"I think it would be differ-
ent if she was actually playing,
and I had to look across the
net and see her," McCray said.
"But we're just so excited to get
to see each other so much more"
by her being in our league.
The Gators were playing on
two days rest, but historically
UF plays well against Georgia.
"We know they are going
to come out, no matter how
their season's going, and they,
are going to give us their best
shot," McCray said.
The Gators won each game
by a margin of at least 11
But it took some late-game
runs by Georgia to even keep
the scores that close.
Struggling to contain UF
outside hitter Jane Collymore,
the Bulldogs fell behind early
Collymore, a two-time
All-American scorched the
Bulldogs for 20 kills, 10 digs

are, Wise said Collymore's

impressive than any stat-sheet

DAVIS, from page 23
"Rhian is a player who obviously

because she was a former walk-on,
who we met because she came to camp
here," Wise said. "We get thousands of
campers who come through here.

"For her to kind of set herself apart,
from Austin, Texas, to come here as a
walk-on, she stepped up yesterday and
was just nailing her serve."
A Daughter's Guilt
As a walk-on, Davis' family had to
pay tuition for her to go to school, a fact
that left her with a little bit of guilt.
"She had opportunities to go out of
state and have a full ride, albeit at a
lower level school," her mother, Ann,
said. "She felt bad that we were go-
ing to have to pay tuition after having
paid for her club and all that kind of
stuff through her younger years in high
school and middle school."
While Davis is now second on the
team in service aces with 22 and fifth
in digs with 131, the transition from
high school to the college game wasn't
a simple one.
"It was really funny because my first
day at practice, I was wide-eyed and
moving all over the place and trying to
do way too much," Davis said.
"The speed is different, the game is
different, there's much more reason for
what you're doing instead of just going
through the motions in practice."
Hard Work Pays Off
Davis was named to the Southeastern
Conference Academic Honor Roll her
sophomore year and she has obviously
come along way from those days when
she was a wide-eyed freshman.
Davis credits her consistent hard
work as the reason she's gotten to
where she is today.
"It's definitely a plus [knowing]
people say, 'Well maybe if you work
hard and that's all you do, you don't
