Back in business
Mayor returns to work
By KIMBERLY GOUZ
Alligator Contributing Writer
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan will return to her post a
week early for Monday's City Commission meeting,
after spending a month of maternity leave learning
R!,. how to be a mom.
Hanrahan said she would return to the commnis-
sion early to ease her way back into the job.
.- "I'm still not going to be up to full schedule,"
she said. "It would be tough to go from being 100
percent on maternity leave to being 100 percent back
Hanrahan faces three deadlocked issues, includ-
ing how and when future elections for local officials
will be held.
The full commission also will choose consultants
to design a new city energy plan.
"The mayor's vote will make the difference," said
City Commissioner Jack Donovan.
She said motherhood hasn't been easy on her.
"We call [the baby] 'the barracuda' because she's
very aggressive when she wants to eat," Hanrahan
said. "She just goes in for the kill."
Evyleen Mary Malone, born Sept. 13, was named
after Hanrahan's grandmother.
"She was such a strong, outspoken and indepen-
dent woman," Hanrahan said of the baby's name-
sake. "The baby is feisty like she was. She comes from
a long line of feisty women."
Although Hanrahan has been out of the office, she
has kept up-to-date on the issues.

Students divided on assisted suicide
By JESSICA RIFFEL
Whether for constitutional or moral
reasons, students are split over the issue
of physician-assisted suicide.
UF College Democrats follow their
party and side with Oregon, arguing that
a state has the ability to enact a law en-
abling physician-assisted suicide.
* College Republicans side with their
party's conservative approach, contend-
ing that the federal government has the
ability to control this medical issue.
"The government, other people
or even ourselves cannot de-
cide when life should end."
Pro-life Alliance president
But many leave party politics behind
and struggle to decide where they stand
on the controversial issue.
"With most issues, I have a strong
opinion, but with this I don't," said Sean
Lebowitz, president of the Law School
Democrats. "I just don't know."
The Supreme Court heard the case ad-
ressing Oregon's 1997 Death with Dignity
Act, which allows physician-assisted sui-
cide, Oct. 5.
The case resulted from Attorney
General John Ashcroft's 2001 statement
that Oregon's doctors would lose federal
prescription privileges if they prescribed
lethal doses of medications.
Oregon is challenging Ashcroft's au-
thority to regulate state law in front of the
Supreme Court, in newly appointed Chief
Justice Judge Roberts' first oral argument.

may go credit
By DAVID COHEN
UF eateries may go "plastic" if officials
decide to allow credit cards at on-campus
dinifig locations in two mortths, though
the switch might hike prices.
UF officials are hesitant to allow stu-
dents to pay for food with credit cards, cit-
ing the possibility of longer lines, student
debts and increased food prices.
UF Business Services Divison Director
James Morgan said the newly built Sun
Terrace, which houses four restaurants
near the Health Science Center, is serving
as a model in paying with credit cards.
But Morgan said when customers use
credit cards at the Sun Terrace, the trans-
actions are slowing down the line. He
said the credit-card machines use dial-up
Internet to access the credit-card company
databases, and the result is a
Student 30-second to a minute wait
Life time for approval.
"It's taking longer than we
had hoped," he said, adding
the credit-card approval system will not
be practical around campus at that speed.
Debit-card payment is not being consid-
ered, Morgan said, because of the hassles of
punching in a PIN number.
Gator Dining representatives were not
available for comment.
Morgan said he should have enough
information to make a decision within the
next two months whether to allow cus-
tomers to pay for food with credit cards
all over campus.
If all 13 Gator Dining campus locations
were allowed to accept credit cards, Morgan
said it would cost UF an estimated $1 mil-
lion in new cash registers, software and
wiring. He added that food prices could
increase up to 5 percent because credit-card
companies charge a transaction fee.
UF officials are considering possible
problems with implementing credit card
payment systems. Price hikes and long
lines could deter customers, Morgan

Supervisor of Elections resigns for semester-at-sea
By DAVID COHEN
Student Government Supervisor of
Elections Daniel Maland announced his
resignation at Student Senate on Tuesday.
"I'm the guy who brought you the digi-
tal disaster," Maland said jokingly, refer-
ring to the Fall election. However, he said
the election had one of UF's highest Fall
election turnout rates at 6,666.
Maland will attend a University of
Pittsburgh semester-at-sea program in
which he will travel to Puerto Rico, Brazil,
South Africa, India and China.
Applications for supervisor are avail-
able in SG offices in the Reitz Union and
are due Nov. 9. Maland said he would help
train the next supervisor.

Outside the Reitz Union at
10 a.m., Vox: Voices for Planned

fair, Sex on the Lawn.
The fair will include games,

"The idea behind the fair is
to educate the student body on
sexual health and current issues
in the reproductive policy (i.e.
the abortion debate)," said Sara
Hanson, the president of Vox.
A representative, from
Planned Parenthood will be
available to answer questions
and administer the free HIV
tests on campus.
"I think HIV testing is a sen-
sitive issue for most students,"
Most students will prefer to
go to the clinic instead of get-
ting tested on campus, she said.
Confidentiality of the tests is
ensured in several ways.
Educator Mike Amish and
his staff will administer the
tests with only one person
in each of the two rooms at a
time, said Kristen Lang, Vox
Sexual health is a huge con-
cern for everyone, especially
for college students, she said.
- Vox Treasurer Jessica Ducey
said students are afraid to ask
sexual-health questions, and
the fair presents the answers in
a fun way.

Programs offer relief to women with pelvic floor pain
* THE DISORDER IS ASSOCIATED
WITH PAINFUL SEX.
By KIMBERLY GOUZ
Alligator Contributing Writer
She knew it was supposed to be painful
the first time, but she didn't expect anything
"When I first started having sex, it hurt a
lot, but I thought ... the pain would eventually
go away," she said.
"It was my mom who told me that my situ-
ation wasn't normal."
The UF graduate student, who wished to
remain anonymous, lives with dyspareunia, a
type of muscle pain in the lower abdomen as-
sociated with painful intercourse.
For women with pelvic floor pain, discomfort
ranges from painful intercourse or bowel move-
ments to dull aches and persistent cramps.
Because of its embarrassing nature, the
topic is an uncomfortable one for her.
"I don't like talking about it, and I don't feel
it is anyone's business," she said.
But when her physical therapist asked her
to come forward, she did, because she said she
felt it was important that others know they are
"Thank God I could confide in my mom,
and now I-am getting help," she said.
She is being treated by a physical therapist
at ReQuest for Women, a local women's health
Her therapist uses techniques such as bio-
feedback, electrical stimulation and massage,
she said, to ease the pressure of her pelvic
floor and to help her learn to dilate her vagina
through stretching techniques.
"It's still not my favorite thing to do, but
I know the physical therapist now, and she
makes me feel comfortable," she said. "The
other thing is that now I have started to see
results, and that is kind of exciting."
Although she has only been undergoing
treatment for two months, she said that she
has seen a-90-percent improvement. -
"I'm lucky I have a really supportive boy-
friend," she said "It's important that a guy real-
izes this problem is real, but if they stick by their
girlfriend, then eventually she'll get better."
Paula Bruce, a physical therapist and wom-
en's health specialist at ReQuest-for Women,
said she is always amazed by how fast her
"I love treating pelvic pain
Public because the women get better so
Health quickly," Bruce said. "Physical
therapy has been treating prob-
lems like this for many years, but it hasn't been
common knowledge until recently."
Bruce said half the battle is being able to
teach women about their diagnosis.
"Sometimes I don't even have to touch the
patient, and by the next time they visit me they
are already 25- to 50-percent better," she said.
"Often all it takes is a little education."
Bruce said dyspareunia is only one kind
of pelvic floor pain that can be treated with
physical therapy Another common diagnosis
- associated with pelvic pain is interstitial cysti-
tis, a bladder disease that can result in frequent
and painful urination.
Interstitial cystitis is common among wom-
en who have had children because childbirth
weakens the pelvic floor, Bruce said.
"It is a muscle, just like any other muscle,
and you need to exercise it," she said.
Bruce teaches her patients how to control
their bladders with kegel exercises.
"You teach behavioral techniques," she
said. "In these cases, the bladder has taken
control of the brain, and we want to get the
brain back in control of the body."
Tejal Patel, a physical therapist at Shands,
said that approximately 40 percent of
American women suffer from pelvic pain, and
not enough of them do something about it.
These problems can be socially embarrass-
ing, she noted, but you have to start some-
where if you want to get better, and this is a
good place to start.
"It's a .shame that a lot of people don't
know about treatments for pelvic pain," Patel

Wal-Mart will jump-start
East Gainesville economy
We can finally get a haircut, cash our checks, fill our
gas tanks and buy fertilizer all at the same place,
while eating an apple too:.
A 204,000-square-foot Wal-Mart Supercenter will be built
in East Gainesville despite some nearby residents' protests.
The store is one of two that company officials originally
planned to bring to our area. The second center was to be
built in Northwest Gainesville, but the City Commission.
has repeatedly rejected the plan.
We're glad the company decided to build a store on
Waldo Road rather than stick to its original threat that it
would build at both locations or none at all.
This corporate machine stands to do what city officials
couldn't: jump-start East Gainesville's economy.
When both projects were attached, this benefit was
overshadowed by objections to the northwest project. By
separating the two,-we can finally talk about one without
drudging up all the controversy tied to the other.
For years, residents have protested the northwest lo-
cation because they worried the store would pollute the
source of Hogtown Creek and hurt local businesses.
But East Gainesville has none of those issues. Some op-
ponents of the northwest store actually support the east
Thus far, complaints have come from nearby residents
who worry about the store causing increased traffic and
decreased property value.
This would be a problem no matter which businesses
moved to east Gainesville. And because.for years the goal
has been to increase business in the area, their arguments
lack any weight.
, These residents live next to a commercial property. It's
unfortunate, but it's unavoidable.
It would be nice for Wal-Mart to address the concerns of
those living in residential developments, but it's in no way
Of course, increased traffic is a problem both residential
and commercial developments will share. Wal-Mart is a rich
empire, so it might actually do the job better than another
And trying to change the property's zoning for one's
personal comfort just won't happen.
So sticking a Wal-Mart in that area is as good as putting
any business there. In fact, it's probably better.
Wal-Mart is unique in its ability to survive in economi-
cally depressed,regions. It's cheap, so it attracts everyone
from surrounding areas, and it sells everything, so it's a
However, other businesses can function in its shadow.
While Wal-Mart might push out local businesses in areas
that already thrive, it attracts stores in areas that have noth-
Wal-Mart's business practices might be a little shady, but
when we look at this situation purely from the perspective
of East Gainesville, its impending existence seems incred-
So it makes sense that city officials are all for the project.
By pushing Wal-Mart to separate the plans for the two
stores, they've also further defined two very different .is-

Democrats need ideas to gain power
f the Democratic Party wants to gain power in the 2006
off-year elections and beyond, it'll have to steal a page
from Notre Dame and "wake up the echoes."
It's a truism that politicians "campaign in poetry and
govern in prose," and that's fine. But during the last decade
or so, Democrats have shown a tendency to campaign in
the poetry of an angst-ridden 13-year-old girl and then act
surprised when no one lets them govern.
It's a bad habit the Democrats are going to have to break,
because.this party finally has an opportunity to make real
strides and take back the reins of government. To botch this
chance would be fatal.
But this shouldn't be so hard, we protest. After all, the
incumbents have proven thoroughly incapable of compe-
tent governance. An unnecessary war in Iraq that still might
have been a force for good has been so blemished that it's
nearly impossible to foresee a positive conclusion. The per-
petrator of the Sept. 11, 2001 atrocity remains alive and free
with no prospect of his capture on the horizon.
On the domestic front, a Republican-dominated govern-
ment has done nothing to advance the country's state. A
recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll indicated only 2
percent of African Americans approve of President Bush.
The Klan has a higher approval rate among African
"Family value" conservatives Tom DeLay and Bill Frist
have become' embroiled in scandal, and the Republican
Party is fighting itself on a wide swath of issues.
So why should this be so difficult for the Democrats?
Because it turns out that the American public actually
expects its opposition party to offer something more than
even the most well-deserved criticism.
They expect their opposition party to present ideas.
Democrats need to present a vision to the American peo-

moral and intellectual bankruptcy
of this Republican government

This is where the echoes come
What should make the current state of the Democratic
"message" so infuriating to rank-and-file Democrats is that
their party used to burst with ambitious ideas and themes.
It was a Democrat who spoke to a shattered nation, told
the public, "the only thing we have to fear is fear itself" and
embarked upon an extraordinary New Deal that sustained
the country through the Great Depression.
It was a Democrat who stood before the American peo-
ple in the dark days following Sputnik and made an incred-
ible promise: This country would reach the moon before the
end of the decade. And it was Democratic administrations
that fulfilled his pledge.
It was a Democrat who declared a War on Poverty and
stated that America must become a "Great Society."
Not all of these ideas worked. Many failed, and miser-
ably. But they were ideas. They were an attempt to create
something more, something better. They' were dreams,
sometimes inspired., sometimes irrational.
But history reserves its strongest ovations for the irratio-
nal dreamers, and the American public reserves its votes for
those with a vision.

Scientific world needs to share genome
I found the Monday column involving the
avian flu very informative. However, if Matt
Melone had done more research into the vi-
rus, he would have discovered that avian flu
has thus far claimed victims who are either
young, old or have weak immune systems.
Comparing it to the plague of the Middle Ages
Concerning the release of the Spanish flu
genome, I find it difficult to believe a terror-
ist would use it as a weapon. There are many
lethal viruses that are much more available to
a terrorist, such as smallpox.
The manufacture of a virus is more com-
plicated than Melone said. Large amounts
of capital and knowledge would be needed,
which I doubt Osama bin Laden has access to.
Sharing of information in the scientific
world is critical to solve problems. The release
of the Spanish flu genome is essential to better
understand and prepare for the avian flu.
WebMail decision needed student voice
Monday's editorial about faults in the tran-
sition to UF's new e-mail forwarding policy
was spot on, but it fails to address the cause
of the problem.
The decision to end students' ability to for-
ward their GatorLink e-mail was made by the
Information Technology Advisory Committee
in the Office of Information Technology. ITAC
is a committee made entirely of deans and
administrators; there is no student representa-
Student representatives on this university-
wide board would help ensure ITAC's deci-
sions don't adversely affect students, who rely
on technology for their educational activities.
More than 20 university committees have
student representatives who sit with uni-
versity decision makers and voice student
concerns. If students can guide decisions on
everything from housing to affirmative action,
why is information technology any different?
Students deserve a voice. We deserve a seat

Facts on abortion always stay the same
People talk about ignorance as though they
have all the answers. They talk about their
opinions as though they were facts.
Let me enlighten you folks: A mother is a
mother, a fetus is a fetus, and a baby is a baby.
How you interpret the physical reality of con-
ception, pregnancy, birth and life is your own
opinion; it is not based on fact but on emotion
and personal belief.
The reason people disagree about abortion
is because of the differences in their views, not
differences in fact.
There's no discrepancy between our reali-
ties; we're just all reacting to the same facts dif-
ferently, and that's what's really human.

New UF facility to train for termite, pest control
* THE CENTER WILL BE BUILT
ON ITS APOPKA CAMPUS.
By ELIZABETH HILLAKER
Alligator Contributing Writer
A new UF project is combatting
termites and the complaints about
the people who kill them.
A $150,000 grant to the UF
Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences will establish the Orkin
Termite Training Facility on the
university's Apopka campus.
The facility will train students,
government agents and industry
professionals how to correctly kill
termites, said Faith Oi, UF professor
and assistant extension scientist.
Sixty-five percent of disciplinary
action in the pest-control industry
is termite-service related, Oi said.
When pest-control companies have
to re-do a job for free because of a
complaint, 90 percent of the costs
are from termite service.
A similar facility in Oklahoma
caused the number of complaints
there to plummet, she said.
The first phase .of the facil-
ity is projected to cost $300,000.
Construction will begin in 2006, and
UF open for
Administration training by
next year, she said.
Someone's house is not the place
to learn what to do, said Martha
Craft, an Orkin employee.-
"They need to be properly
trained before they go out in the
field," Craft added.
It will be an industry-based facil-
ity, she said, with 90 percent of its
clients coming from the professional
sector. Student usage will be less
than 5 percent of the facility's use.
Entomology students could use
the facility as part of the ride-along
program, which is an internship in
the field or as part of a course, she.
The two-day class sessions
will be capped at 20 students, and
though other termite-training facili-
ties charge between $250 and $450,
UF's self-sustaining facility has not
decided what it will charge.
The facility will expand with ad-
ditional sponsorship by Terminix,
the Florida Pest Management
Association and others, Oi said.
The facility is located in Apopka
due to its relatively central location
and proximity to the Orlando air-
port. Pest-control agents in northern
states will be able to use the facility
as well, she said.
Pests carry disease, damage
property and affect public health,
Craft said. Anything that benefits
the pest-control industry as a whole
will benefit the public, she said.

she said. "I am usually in the parade, and I

But Hanrahan said she and "Evy"

She brought the baby to a Sept. 12

"We joked that we had to bring a baby

The baby also has frequented her
father's band rehearsals and attended a
recent gig at an art studio downtown.
Evyleen's father, Tony Malone, plays
trumpet and bass guitar in a five-member
rock band, Weeds of Eden.
"The baby seems to really enjoy the
music as near as you can tell," Malone said.
Malone is also an engineer at CH2M Hill.
He said the baby's favorite song is
"Silver Wings" by Merle Haggard.
"The band was learning it around the
time she was bom," he said. "One time she
was fussy during a car ride and I sang it to
her. She shut right up."

Students' uncertainty arises not only because of is-
sues concerning state vs. federal jurisdiction but also
because many moral arguments exist for and against
The Pro-Life Alliance opposes assisted suicide, and
president Kate Keeley said the federal government
should step in to protect its citizens.
"The government, other people or even ourselves
cannot decide when life'should end," she said.
Conservatives also argue the slippery-slope theory.
"It's starting a trend," said Matt Dean, executive
director of the College Republicans. "It will become
something .that is more accessible."
However, Ray Moseley, associate professor in the
Bioethics, Law and Medical Professionalism program in
UF's College of Medicine disagrees.
"The slippery-slope theory doesn't hold a lot of
weight for me because there are safeguards in place,"
Two doctors must determine that a patient's life
expectancy is less than six months and thaf he or she
is mentally competent. To complete the process, the pa-
tient must make an initial request to the doctor and wait
15 days before making a written request observed by at
least two witnesses.
The patient must also be advised of treatment and
pain-management alternatives, and the doctor can only
prescribe the drugs, not administer them.
"It's not like they're just letting anyone commit sui-
cide," said Stephanie Sims, College Democrats president.
"I support the law with these regulations in place."
But Moseley pointed out one ethical downfall of
physician-assisted suicide. He said patients who either
don't have funds to pay for pain-relieving treatment or
don't wish to deplete their savings might choose suicide
"My concern with this issue is that if we have the
current medical system, people will make their decision
of treatment or suicide based on their financial situa-
tion," Moseley said.
He described a possible situation in which a grand-
mother might choose suicide over treatment or nursing
home care that would deplete her savings.
"She might be tempted to choose death to make
sure her children get the money," Moseley said. "It may
sound harsh, but I know people who would make that
decision in a heartbeat."
Moseley said that under the current medical sys-
tem, the rich have no incentive to choose suicide be-
cause they can pay for pain-management treatment,
but the .poor more likely would request assisted
"I would not be for someone killing themselves for
financial reasons," Moseley said. *
He said the United States needs a system in which
citizens can get reasonable access to basic healthcare so
that high prices of medical care will not overinfluence
patient's decisions regarding suicide.
Although Shands HealthCare spokesman Lance
Skelly said he would not comment on Oregon hospitals'
assisted suicide policy, he said, "We're in the business of
keeping people alive."
The Supreme Court's decision is expected in July. -

Students turn holiday into homeless fundraiser
Ramadan a time of reflection Non-Muslims urged to fast for local shelter

Islam on Campus is combining
faith with'fundraising Thursday.
The UF student group aims to
bring understanding of hunger
to non-Muslim students through
fasting as part of a fundraiser for
Gainesville's St. Francis House, a
local shelter for the homeless.
The Ramadan Fast-a-Thon, in
its third year at UF, is a national
program that raises money for
soup kitchens by asking business-
es to pledge a certain donation for
every non-Muslim student who
agrees to fast for one day.
"You can show people pictures
of the homeless and say, 'They're
hungry,' but unless you know
what it feels like, it doesn't hit you
as much," said program coordina-
tor Omar Ishaq.
For 29 days of the Muslim holy
month, Ramadan, which began
Oct. 4, Muslims don't eat or drink
from sunrise to sunset.
You can show people
pictures of the homeless
and say, 'They're hungry,'
but unless you know what

The program begins at 6:58
a.m. and 'concludes with a do-
nated dinner for all participants in
the Stephen C. O'Connell Center
at 6:58 p.m.
Last year, Islam on Campus
raised $1,000 with 250 partici-
pants. This year, Ishaq said he ex-
pects to exceed that amount with
more than 400 participants.
"We have a lot of interest be-
cause this event helps people to
understand hunger in a different
way," he said.
Ishaq said the issue is par-
ticularly important in Alachua
County, one of Florida's poorest,
because jobs are limited, especially
to residents with no college educa-
tion competing with graduating
"When we, see a bum, our first
reaction is, 'Get a job,' but there
is a real. problem here," he said.
"This program is a way for the
UF student body and administra-
tion to take a stance on hunger in
Ishaq said the dinner will
feature speakers from the St.

participants in the event decided
to volunteer after the fast.

Leak, Gators try to revitalize sinking offense
ammmm mmmmana amournt amm mee w s w Marm
* MEYER CRITICAL OF UF'S
By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
If Urban Meyer hopes to revital-
ize the Gators, he'll have to do it
with bags under his eyes.
Meyer admitted he hasn't slept
much since UF fell to Louisiana State
21-17 on Saturday.
And his sleep mirrors quarter-
back Chris Leak's production in
UF's two losses this year non-
"You've got to regroup and
regain your composure."
"Losses are horrible," Meyer
said. "Especially when you invest
so much ... and we invested a lot in
that last game. That was a lot of in-
vestment by everybody involved."
After an off-season full of prom-
ise and hope, two ESPN.com ana-
lysts are now predicting the Gators
to finish the season in the Music City-
Bowl in Nashville a bowl game
that occurs on Dec. 30.
It would be UF's second consecu-
tive non-January bowl game, mark-
ing a step backward for a program
that many expected would end up
in the top 10.
"You've got to regroup and re-
gain your composure," Leak said.
"The main thing is not to panic and
On Tuesday, Meyer spoke to the
media for the first time since an
emotional press conference follow-
ing Saturday's loss.
With most of the questions di-
rected at UF's offensive failures,
Meyer defended Leak on more than
one occasion while criticizing UF's
Leak completed just 11 of 30
passes for 107 yards on Saturday
- his worst performance as a
starter at UF, but Meyer put to rest
any speculation that true freshman
Josh Portis could compete for any of
Leak's playing time.
"Chris Leak is our quarterback,"
Meyer said. "To put the whole
blame on him is absolutely not fair.
It's everyone involved."
After last year's breakout season
when Leak led the Southeastern
Conference in most of the major
passing categories, the junior cur-
rently ranks just fifth in passing
yards per game and total offense,
and sixth in pass efficiency.
Meyer and offensive coordinator
Dan Mullen completely revised the
offense in the. off-season in an at-.
tempt to try to mirror what they did

Two ways out of Nashville
By NICK ZACCARDI
Carolyn Peck has found the fountain
of youth, and it's in Tennessee.
Peck brought in an unprecedented
six-member freshman class, including
four from the Volunteer state.
The freshman class, a talented group
of players who are more plentiful in
number than UF's senior class, is ranked
in the top 10 by multiple recruiting ser-
vices and has an opportunity to help
bring the Gators back to the NCAA
"I believe that [the freshmen] are
going to make a huge contribution to

this year," said senior Sarah Lowe, who
will compete with a pair of freshmen for
playing time at point guard. "They're go-
ing to make mistakes. At the same time,
they're here for a reason and they're here
to play at that level of competition."

UF and LSU at Pressly Stadium

he sun is setting a little earlier. The air
is growing colder. And judging by the
violent debate over UF's football fate,
I'd say it's mid-October. And I don't even
have to use a calendar.
It's never too early to talk bowl predic-
With the Gators in free fall, some have UF
pegged for an appearance in Nashville for
the Music City Bowl on Dec. 30.
And that isn't all too ridiculous.
Considering the parity in the SEC this sea-
son, UF (5-2, 3-2 SEC) really needs a win
against Florida State to solidify a spot in at
least a New Year's Eve game.
Anyone longing for an Outback Bowl
UF could still make it to the SEC title
game if it defeats Georgia and the Bulldogs
win against Auburn, but the way I see it, the
Gators have two ways out of Nashville.

Can Chris Leak
run the spread-op-
tion? Coach Urban
heard the question in
his sleep as he made
rounds of boosters'
meetings and press
The answer: NO.-
I tried to defend the guy as long as I
could. First, it was a learning curve. Later, it
was the offensive line. Then, it was a secret
injury. Now, I admit I was wrong. Leak's
ineptitude in Meyer's system transcends his
11-for-30, 107-yard stat line against LSU on
Saturday. He has happy feet. He's not read-
ing the defense properly on blitzes. And he's
still locking onto receivers. Believe it or not,
Chad Jackson and Dallas Baker aren't the
only players on the team with hands.

quarterback that has thrived in a traditional
But this also meant that UF's offensive
line, which was among the best in the SEC,
would have to learn a complex zone-block-
ing scheme. The line is giving up the most
sacks in the conference while ranking next
to last in the SEC in penalties per game.

What's the point of even
putting a Kenneth Tookes,
Gavin Dickey, Tate Casey or
Kyle Morgan on the field if
Leak won't even look at them?
Mistakes like these cannot
be attributed to any injury. You
don't throw into triple cover-
age because of a sore shoulder.
Leak is about as comfortable in
the spread as Bernie Machen at
"When you don't have time to set your
feet and throw it's just a different ball
game," Leak said.
While Meyer and senior center Mike
Degory said the line showed improvement
against LSU and allowed DeShawn Wynn
to become a viable running threat, it is still
"Obviously we've got far too many
sacks, far too much pressure, so it's a com-
bination of issues," Meyer said. "It's a little
bit slower than we had hoped."
It doesn't help UF's offensive woes that
a receiver has not stepped up in the absence
And as his decision-making
continues to regress, I'm not
sure if he ever will be comfort-
Is it a coincidence that Meyer
nearly broke down in tears
on Saturday after being asked
about Leak's performance?
He's a smart guy. He knows
Leak can't do what he's asking
of him. But he's also 'an ex-
tremely competitive guy.
It seems as though Meyer's
loyalty to the one-time All-SEC
quarterback is dashing with
his will to win. Still, Meyer just
won't pull the trigger, laying to
rest any rumors of freshman
Josh Portis assuming the start-
ing role on Tuesday.
2. .K.I.S.S: It's time to quit
trying to stuff square pegs into
round holes and just pull out
the old jigsaw.
It's time for Meyer to swal-
low his pride and dumb down

is a win against No. 4 Georgia for the Gators

Sophomores fill blocker void
* THE 2 K'S STEP INTO KEY
By BRYAN JONES,
There was really only one
question that would decide
whether the UF volleyball team
would be a legitimate champion-
ship contender this season.
How would the Gators fill
the void left by departed middle
blockers Michelle Chatman and
The- answer: Kisya
Killingsworth and Kari
It's an answer, however, that
has not always been so apparent.
While Killingsworth and
Klinkenborg are natural middle
blockers, both spent most of their
freshman seasons playing other
positions primarily right-side
hitter as UF struggled to re-
place then-injured right-side hit-
ter Amber McCray.
It was tough enough for the
duo to spend their first season
adjusting to a new position, but
being asked to make the transi-
tion back to the middle blocker
position this year proved to be
even more difficult, Killingsworth
Initially, both struggled to
adapt to the intricacies of the
middle blocking position, which
Coach Mary Wise has said is one
of the most difficult positions to
learn in collegiate volleyball.
Since the start of Southeastern
Conference play, however, it
would seem someone has lit a fire
under the sophomore tandem.
Killingsworth has become one
of the Gators' top scoring options
and has provided UF with a men-
acing presence in the middle.
"What Kisya has done is,
where a year ago she was no-
where on anybody's scouting
report, she is definitely on her
opponent's scouting report,"
After a weekend home
stand earlier this year where
Killingsworth amassed 27
kills over two matches against
Tennessee and South Carolina,
she was honored as the SEC
Player of the Week.
"[Killingsworth] is just a
firecracker," sophomore Amber
McCray said. "When she goes
off, she goes off.".
Meanwhile, Klinkenborg has
been the.steady contributor Wise
has needed her to be.
"We tell all our players 'Be pa-
tient until your time comes, and
then when your time comes, take
full advantage of it.' And that is
what Kari is doing."
And when opponents try to
zone in on UF s more notable
scorers, Klinkenborg can make
them pay the price.
Just ask the Georgia Bulldogs,
against whom Klinkenborg
dropped 13 kills and five blocks
earlier this season.
The progression of the mid-
dles may be the. difference be-
tween an early exit in the NCAA
Tournament and UF's eighth trip
to the Final Four.
I "To win in collegiate women's
volleyball, you have to have a
presence in the middle," Wise
said. "It's one thing to be out
there. It's another thing to score
points. Kisya and Kari are scor-
ing points for us on a consistent
