Tau Epsilon Phi Fraternity was
put on social suspension by the Greek
Judicial Board on Wednesday evening
after the fraternity hosted an unregis-
tered party Aug. 20.
The infraction is one of sev-
eral occurring recently within the
Interfraternity Council, as Tau Epsilon
Phi is one of three fraternities facing
punishment in the next month.
TEP President Brett Lieberman said
fraternity members were holding a
"brotherhood" event at their chapter
house the night of the party.

Former TEP Vice President Jason
Lutin investigated the incident and
said that after speaking with members
present at the party, he discovered that
seven underage members called frater-
nity alumni, who then brought other
guests and beer to the house.
In his opening statement to the ju-
dicial board, Lieberman said, "We're
embarrassed for ourselves. We're em-
barrassed for the Greek community.
Something like this will never happen
He also noted the fraternity had not
been in front of the judicial board in "a
very long time."
Lieberman said there were no
executive members present after he
stepped out. The house just opened up
for members to move back in the day
before the party.

False fire alarm scare closes down local rehab center
By HEATHER RAPP
Alligator Contributing Writer
About 20 disabled residents of
University Place Care and Rehab
Center were evacuated Wednesday
afternoon after an employee smelled
smoke coming from a bathroom.
The fire alarm was pulled at
about 3 p.m. at 4000 SW 20th Ave.,
but officials said no fire was started
in a nursing bathroom vent. No inju-
ries were reported.
Dust caused the vent's fan to
malfunction, said Jeff Bradley, the
"There was a little smoke, and
to be safe we called the fire depart-
ment," Bradley said.
About 10 minutes after the alarm
went off, emergency vehicles arrived.
Disabled residents continued
moving into the center's parking lot
until about 3:15 p.m.
"We're going on a field trip!" one
patient joked as he maneuvered his
walker through the exit.
After the alarm sounded, two
confused nurses hesitantly reached
for fire extinguishers.
Local "I guess I'll pick
News it up and go with the
flow," one nurse said
as she darted down the hallway.
Within 15 minutes, the wing was
cleared of all patients.
By 3:19 p.m., shouts of "all dear"
rang through the hallways, and at-
tendants rapidly returned residents
to their rooms.
Patrick Tombler of the Alachua
County Sheriff's Department said he
was glad the center called for help.

Protesters denounce war, mourn dead
* THE U.S. DEATH TOLL IN
IRAQ JUST PASSED 2,000.
By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Alligator Contributing Writer
War veterans, members of
peace movements and UF stu-
dents peacefully protested the
2,000 deaths of U.S. soldiers in
Iraq on the comer of University
Avenue and 13th Street on
The demonstration started
slowly, but more showed up as
the evening progressed, totaling
about 100 by 7 p.m.
Jennifer Wildes, a protester
whose son is in Iraq, said she was
there because she does not sup-
port the war.
"Even if my son is killed
before he comes home, I would
not stop trying to stop the war,"
Her son, a geography major at
UF, should return to Gainesville
in November and will then make
a decision to either re-enlist in the
Army or finish his last semester
"Follow your heart before you
decide to serve," she advised UF
students. "Understand the rami-
fications and make sure you look
at all the options you have."
Pierce Butler, a member of the
Community Coalition Against
War and Terrorism, said he was
there "to mobilize the public and
scare the government into real-
izing the public is against what
they are doing in Iraq and to
Julia Altman, a third-year
wildlife ecology major, said,
"We should unite to fight apathy
because as demonstrated by this
war, ignorance kills."

of the drivers pumped their fists
in support, and others just raised
their middle fingers.

Police reports stated there were
approximately 150-200 people at

Along with social suspension

Board also implemented social

SG must stop funding
We thought students were the poor ones in the food
chain of a public university. They give up all of their
savings to be educated by professionals, then use
the remaining crumbs to buy cheap beer.
But in the past few years, it appears university officials are
taking the money reserved for our use and using it to fund
their ventures. They've found the gold mine of financial back-
ing where large amounts of cash are distributed with negli-
gible paperwork and fiscal claims are accepted with minimal
Let's see if you can guess what student sector's ass these
officials have been fiercely tapping.
Here's a hint: It controls more than $11 million of your
tuition money, and the Editorial Board has an unhealthy ob-
session with it.
That's right: It's Student Government. The most recent
instance of an official attempting to take advantage of student
senators' ignorance is Michael Blacnly, director of the Phillips
Center for the Performing Arts.
At Tuesday's Senate meeting, Blachly asked senators to
consider pouring more money into subsidizing student tickets
for shows. In February, SG gave $75,000 to subsidize tickets. In
July, SG gave $115,000 to the center, but more than $96,000 of
it is already gone.
That didn't last very long.
More than 3,000 students took advantage of the $10 tickets.
By our calculations, that means SG is paying more than $20
for each ticket.
When will this stop? The Phillips Center should not be al-
lowed to constantly come to Senate and ask for money from
reserves. It's not sustainable.
Since July, SG has paid an average of more than $30,000
a month to the center. That's absolutely ridiculous. Are they
seriously considering funding tickets for a third time?
We're glad students are going to performances, but this
subsidy benefits the Phillips Center more than the students.
Students are paying for the tickets all the same; SG is just forc-
ing every student to pay a large chunk of the ticket price so
that a few will be inclined to pay the rest.
If the Phillips Center wants students, it will have to lower
the ticket price itself. SG doesn't have the money to make ev-
ery business alluring to students.
But this isn't the only instance of officials milking us for all
Remember Gator Growl and the $140,000 taken out of re-
serves that went to subsidize tickets?
And what about the $100,000 we gave to the Reitz Union to
fix a sewer line? And the $500,000 interest-free loan for Reitz
renovations? And the $1.5 million that was supposed to go to
the Flavet Field Bandshell and at the last minute was redirect-
ed to the Reitz for another sewer line and redecoration?
The Reitz Union already gets a big chunk of SG's budget.
Its officials have absolutely no right to ask for so much extra
money outside of their budget.
Just from the examples in this editorial, that's more than
$900,000 taken from reserves. That doesn't count the $1.5 mil-
lion, which came from a state fund made up of tuition money
that is released to the university every three to five years.
SG should look more closely at who comes asking for mon-
ey and whether students benefit enough to justify funding.
At this point, it looks like they're being used.

Audit supports labor union's claims
T he Oct. 20 Alligator article titled "Audit gives

Student Fee, should serve as a reminder of the UF
administration's fundamentally contradictory stance on

administration participated in a protest march against
an offensive cartoon printed in the Alligator, my initial
reaction was one of outrage at officials' display of hy-
I agree that the cartoon belittled a legitimate observa-

Instead, my anger was compounded by the audacity of
the administration to claim that it was marching in the

For the past three years, the administration has made
discrimination an official university policy with the
implementation of an arbitrary $50 semester fee.
In other words, UF charges international students
$50 each semester just because they come from- a foreign.

Graduate assistants do much of the undergraduate

As graduate assistants, we are not compensated as
regular or adjunct faculty, and this allows our highly

According to the Alligator article, Florida's auditor
general has come to a conclusion that coincides with
what we've argued for the past three years that
"UF 'acted clearly without statutory authority' when it
charged certain international students $50 per semester
to cover the cost of tracking them beginningFall.2002."
The administration's response, however, shows that
it intends to continue talking about diversity while at
the same time taxing its own international community.
GAU will continue to protest this fee until the UF
administration decides that it truly values equality and
diversity above profit margins and abolishes this fee.

SG election results shouldn't stop efforts
In the aftermath of the Fall 2005 Student
Senate elections, one begins to wonder exactly
what happened to all those campus leaders
outside pressing the flesh. Have they gone back
into hibernation until the next election cycle? If
so, that's a shame, because there's so much to be
done and so few leaders on campus to do it.
For those who lost their campaigns, there's no
reason to stay away from Student Government
or organizational leadership. Former Board

a pop-culture icon and will challenge students
to think about life outside of Gainesville.
"We grew up watching Jaleel on 'Family

about life growing up in the limelight and how
he dealt with the adversity of finding work af-
ter a successful television show."
SUF community health education junior Veda
Rammohan first saw White after she moved to
the United States from India in 1992.
"'Family Matters' was the first American
television sitcom that I was introduced to, and I
fell in love with it immediately mainly because
of the character Urkel," Rammohan said.
She said she admires White as a positive role
model for minority students.
S' "I feel that he has a lot to offer UF students
with regard to his successful career as a minor-
ity actor," she said.
White, 28, began his role on "Family

able nerd Steve Urkel. White's one-time guest
stint became a recurring role, and the 12-year-

Generation misinterprets the hook up
The other day on "Real Time with Bill
Maher," I saw Tom Wolfe, one of my
favorite authors, joking about our
generation's mating habits. The usually
right-on author sarcastically pointed out
what he called the end of dating and our
generation's tendency toward the hook-up.
In what feels like a case of 'the old
man just doesn't get it,' he contended
that kids today don't
date, but rather hook up
continually and often
a night at the bar with a
group of friends.
Now, I can't argue against the claim
that dating is dead. But the idea that all
we do is hook up anonymously felt com-
'Then I realized what Wolfe missed.
We don't date, but we certainly don't all
hook up either. Most people have vari-
ous circles of friends in which we meet
new people we might be interested in.
Typically, after getting to know a person
in a group setting first, we start seeing
each other privately.
What's hard for the older generation to
understand is that our age group doesn't
date any longer in the traditional getting-
to-know-you sense. Dates now are mostly
activities of established couples who can
already enjoy each other's company for a
significant time period.
Time spent on a bad date wastes time
that could be spent hanging out with
friends. Therefore, we rarely use the date
as a social event to meet and better ac-
quaint ourselves with a stranger.
In my opinion, our generation is smart
for leaving this ineffective social habit in
the past. Dating in the traditional sense
remains one of the most consistently awk-
ward activities ever invented, second only
to the county-issued,
Mr. Lube high school locker room
Risqu6 Business physical.
email@example.com To be honest, I don't
think I've ever been on a
good first date. I've been
on memorable first dates, but never good
ones. Once, I was with a guy who decided
the 24-hour restaurant we were eating in
at 2 a.m. smelled bad and had the wait-
ress re-seat us three times. Finally, he
concluded the whole place stunk, ordered
a milkshake that wasn't on the menu and
left without tipping.
While this isn't the norm of all dat-
ing experiences, I can say my traditional
getting-to-know-you dates have never
amounted to more than mediocre meals
with mediocre people.
So I applaud our generation for bunk-
ing antiquated tradition, and I endorse
our age's standard of soon-to-be couples
meeting and getting to know each other
in group settings first. Of course, this isn't
what Wolfe, or most of the older gen-
eration, sees and maybe it's time someone

"I had a kick-ass job, traveled to
every state and overseas," White said.
"If anything, I missed out on the non-

White, a graduate of UCLA film
school, agreed to speak at UF because
it is a well-respected university. He
hopes to offer students honest advice
on how to survive in the real world
"An undergraduate degree won't
help you get a job," White said. "If col-
lege teaches you one thing, it should
be to make things happen when they
need to happen because after you
graduate, it's a reality check."
After the success of Family Matters,
White was forced to deal with the re-
ality of finding consistent work in an
ever-evolving entertainment industry.
White wrote several episodes of the
show, which ignited his passion to
continue writing professionally.

MTV2 seeks VJs
at Oaks Mall
By MARIA LAVERGHETTA
For the first time, The Oaks Mall in Gainesville and Cox
Communications are hosting the MTV2 Local VJ competi-
tion through Sunday.
One hundred people and 10 alternates will be randomly
drawn from this week's auditions the following week to
compete at a live audition held Nov. 4 at the mall.
The only stipulation is those selected must be between
the ages of 18 and 24. One grand-prize winner will be cho-
sen three weeks after the audition.
Jennifer Melfi, the marketing assistant at The Oaks Mall
in charge of the competition, said she is excited about the
The small booth where participants sign up at the mall
is directly next to the customer-service desk. Name, ad-
dress, phone number and date of birth are required before
placing the application in the box.
Melfi wished she had participated when she was in
"Everybody grew up on MTV," she said.

Some costumes still cheap
Band plays creepy show
With the warm glow of jack-o'-lantems
and the obligatory passing out of free
candy comes the pressure to shell out
for a good Halloween costume.
If you are like me, you've convinced your-
self for the first three weeks of October that
dressing up isn't worth it.
We both know this simply means you
haven't thought of anything good. Inevitably,
some friend makes you feel guilty and uncre-
ative for not having an elabo-
rate, witty costume planned.
They even tell you you're not
invited to his party unless
you dress up. So, with days
left, you have to go big or stay
home. The pressure mounts.
But it's not too late to salvage yourself from
This year, I am scrambling for brilliance
along with you.
The following costumes don't require the
loss of personal dignity but only a trip to
Goodwill or Wal-Mart and the expenditure of
no more than $10.
The first cheap-costume category: those
involving a box or other type of receptacle.
All of these will require some paint and wide

distinguished by a tail,
floppy ears, and colored fur canbe created with
ease. Bunnies always seem to roam around
Gainesville in abundance. Puppies, skunks,
spiders, all of these can be pulled off with
pinned-on extremities and some face paint.
Next, look to the fruit kingdom for inspira-
tion. Purple or green balloons and more pins
can transform you into a cluster of grapes. You
may find it difficult to get close to anyone, but a
few people are bound to give you a laugh.
With leftover balloons, a friend could round
up a huge plastic bag, cut holes for her legs,
and become a human bag of jelly beans.
Good luck sitting down.
Pin socks, undies, shirts and drier sheets on
yourself to become static cling personified.
Whether you wear a box, a hamper, floppy
ears or even a rented generic costume, I wish
you much Halloween fun.

One thing is clear when you are talk-
ing to Chris from local "pop-punk-hor-
ror-Oil" band The Monistats. He is a very
hyper, busy guy.
In only a half-hour, he downs a large
cup of Maude's coffee, sucks two ciga-
rettes to the filter, fields two calls on
his cell phone and sporadically "C

drummer with energy. The M
The Monistats, all trans- dru
plants from South Florida, spe-
cialize in two-minute punk songs
that they kill, bury, dig back up and
polish off with pop melodies. The band's
inner album photo off its summer release
"Let's Disinfect!" shows them dressed
up as The Molasses Gang, the band's
fictitious alter-ego act, dissecting a brain,
potentially for food.
The band's lead singer and guitar-
ist, Sean, dons a handlebar mustache as
bassist Dan and Chris salivate over the
"That's our sense of humor," Chris
said. "Let's put it that way."
One of Gainesville's premiere horror
acts, it seems obvious Halloween is the
group's time of year to shine.
The band plans to kick off the holiday
with a Saturday "Rocky Horror Picture
Show"-themed house party. The band,
in costume, will play covers from the
cult classic. The location of the show will
be announced on the band's MySpace
account, which is accessible through its
Web site, themonistats.com.
"Crowd participation is a must,"
rnwdr said Chris, who is dressing up as
nation The Monistats will also
ust." appear at Midtown on
sincere Monday for its Halloween
Horror Show with Cara
tmer del Gato and Baby Dracula.
Though the band doesn't plan
to continue its Rocky Horror get-
up for the show, the venue will hold
a costume contest.
Some upcoming shows will also
feature a very different side of The
Monistats. The band recently played
their first acoustic show, a territory they
are a little unfamiliar with. The idea to
unplug came out of necessity, Chris said.
Between work and a late class schedule,
it is becoming harder and harder for the
band to find time to load gear, particu-
larly drums, before a show.
"We were trying to make our instru-
mentation the best as possible with what
we had to work with," he said.

Kickers, defense will
define Georgia game
Ican imagine what those of you heading to
Jacksonville this weekend are looking forward to.
You and eight or nine of your buddies have
pitched in money to stay at the Adam's Mark or
the Hilton downtown. You can't wait to get to the
Landing, where you'll meet and greet with those
lovely ladies from the Peach State.
Gentlemen, no more casual babes in Gators' tank
tops and khaki shorts for you. No, sir, the girls from
Georgia will be decked out in their finest red and
black dresses just like they were headed to the prom.
With the ESPN Gameday boys there, this is go-
ing to be the sweetest weekend of college football all
Well, that may be true as long as you don't count
the actual game between the
___. Gators and the Bulldogs.
| j Don't get me wrong. The

email@example.com Leak throwing an 80-yard play-
action pass to Chad Jackson or
Georgia's Leonard Pope plow-
ing over three Gators' defenders. Sorry, but I doubt
you'll see too much of that.
The fact is that this is the year of defense in the
Southeastern Conference. It's no coincidence that
there isn't a single SEC team ranked in the top 30 in
total offense in the entire nation.
Let's remember that Leak has only thrown one
touchdown pass to four interceptions in UF's last
Take away Georgia's leading passer and third-
leading rusher in D.J. Shockley, and that pretty much
stunts the Bulldogs' offense, too.
Where will the points come from on Saturday?
The special teams!
The Gators' hero just might be none other than
walk-on kicker Chris Hetland.
Hetland has been the only Gator who has been
able to consistently put up points for Urban Meyer,
going 8 for 8 in field goals this year.
As good as Hetland has been, Georgia's kicker
has been just as reliable. Brandon Coutu has nailed
16 field goals so far and is actually the SEC's leading
You may think that kickers aren't real football
players, but when teams are evenly matched up, who
do you think makes the difference?
LSU defeated Auburn last weekend because
Auburn's kicker missed five field goals in the game,
including a crucial one in overtime.
After the Alabama loss, Meyer said, "If they want
me to kick field goals, they hired the wrong guy."
Well, Coach, that's admirable, but they did hire
you to win games, and it looks like Hetland is the
best card you've got in your hand right now.

* JUNIOR EXPECTS GAME TO
BE A DEFENSIVE BATTLE.
By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
First on crutches, then on a re-
habilitating right leg, defensive end
Ray McDonald has been watching
the Gators closely for the last month.
Perhaps too closely.
He saw them annihilated at the
hands of Alabama's Brodie Croyle.
He witnessed the Tigers spoil what
should have been UF's five-turnover
He did try to come back for that
game. But just four weeks after par-
tially tearing the ACL in his right knee,
it was two plays punched in, the rest
of the time spent squirming on the
sidelines. Now, with Georgia standing
between UF and a last-ditch shot at the
Southeastern Conference champion-

Oct. 15. The defensive end said he will be ready for Georgia.
ship, McDonald will wait no more. He
may not be able to play every snap of
the game, but he'll do anything he ckit
to impact its outcome.
"I've been hurting these past few
weeks watching," McDonald said.
"I know we're 5-2 ... I've felt that I
could've helped my team out a lot
more. I wanted to help my team out a
lot more, but I was hurt. I feel like this
has to be my game right here."
More than ever, the Gators need
McDonald. With UF's offense floun-
dering and Georgia's attack hinging
on an arm more familiar with the punt
team than the first-string offense, the
game likely will be decided by the
"Of course, [Georgia's] going to
struggle a little bit," McDonald said.
"And our offense is kind of struggling,
so we've got to play for our offense.
It's going to be a great defensive game.
I think it will be a real low-scoring
The Gators lead the SEC with a
+13 turnover margin, with Georgia
in second place at +9. UF's No. 2 SEC
defense can only hope the injured D.J.
Shockley won't make a cameo in the
game. In Athens, Ga., there is no talk
of the possibility of a freak comeback.
Still, the Gators don't want to be am-
bushed by anything at this point.
"The bottom line is that we have
to get ready for Georgia's offense,
and whoever is the quarterback, is the
quarterback," co-defensive coordira-
tor Greg Mattison said. "Some guys
obviously bring other things to the
table, but we still have to go about it as
if he is coming back."
Even if. the incumbent doesn't
play, quarterback Joe Tereshinski 1ll
certainly has weapons to work with.
And there's the mammoth tight end
Leonard Pope. Then there's the con-
ference's most athletic, running back
tandem: the two-headed monster of
Thomas Brown and Danny Ware has
combined for 734 rushing yards.
"They're some good ones," Coach
Urban Meyer said. "They're not neces-
sarily the biggest, but these guys have
had some great games in the past, and
they're extremely fast."
UF's linebacker unit could pres-
ent problems of its own. Linebacker
Brandon Siler will play on a sore left
ankle he sprained toward the end of
the Louisiana State game. His replace-
ment, freshman Jon Demps, is out for
the season. Still, barring some new in-
jury, UF's defense feels it can compen-
sate for any spread offense woes.
"We try to put every game on our
back, because we feel like we have the
ability to do that," Siler said. "We're
just that good."

Fresh off injury, soccer star wins SEC honors
By SPENCER DAVIS-VANNESS
Imagine what Megan Kerns can do on
the field when she's healthy.
UF soccer coach Becky Burleigh said on
Monday that Kerns is still not fully healed
from a torn meniscus suffered in the season
opener and will continue rehabilitation.
Despite the lingering injury, Kerns re-
ceived Southeastern Conference Freshman
of the Week honors for her performances
against Louisiana State and Arkansas dur-
ing the past weekend.
Kerns scored a goal in both matches,
claiming the first point of the match against
the Tigers and picking up the No. 17 Gators'
(12-4-1, 7-2-1 SEC) lone goal against the
Razorbacks on a 20-yard free kick.
"It's a really great feeling, a great hon-
or," Kerns said. "I'm really surprised to be
back this quickly. The doctors didn't really
give me this chance at all."
Burleigh praised Kerns' durability and
"When she gets to 100 percent and she
gets a little more experience, she's going to
be someone you guys are going to hear a lot
more about," Burleigh said.
Kerns is the second UF freshman to
earn the award this season. Fellow for-
ward Katie Green picked up the honors
for her performances against Kentucky and
Vanderbilt earlier this year.
HEALTHY GATORS?: For the first time in
weeks, the Gators could enter this weekend

Fotopoulos said she continued to keep
up with some of her coaching duties while
away by keeping in touch with Burleigh,
text messaging with players and recruiting

the trip gave her a chance to look at the
game of soccer a little differently again.
"It gave me a little break from a being
a coach and allows me to get back into the

Gators unfazed by national attention
By IAN FISHER
Alligator Staff Writer
Even though ESPN GameDay and
ESPN2's Cold Pizza are going to be in
Jacksonville this weekend for the an-
nual Florida-Georgia game, some of the
Gators say it won't really sink in until
they arrive at the cocktail party.
"You love to have that kind of
publicity, but it really slips your mind
sometimes," sophomore linebacker
Brandon Siler said. "You don't see it un-
til you get there. 'Oh, shoot- Ga meDa
is here.' It finally sets in."
Siler said the Gators have bigger
things to worry about than the national
hype that will be cast upon this game
with ESPN in town.
"You don't really play for those types
of things," Siler said. "We still have our
vision on the SEC Championship. We
know some things have to happen, but
the first thing we have to do is handle
our business in Jacksonville."

UF linebacker Brandon Siler hits Mississippi State receiver Tee Milions during
the Gators' 35-9 win against the Bulldogs on Oct. 8, knocking the ball loose.
Although that may not impress Siler,
one thing that d id impress him last year
was how the crowd is split in half. Siler
was a freshman and didn't quite know
what to expect.
TPepple told me about it on the
way over, and I was like, 'What? Half
and half?'" Siler said. "I didn't know
exactly how that was going to be split,
but it's like a perfect line bam right
down the middle. It's kind of amazing
at first; I wonder how they get down

aged to join the crowd in front of Alltel
INJURY UPDATES: Meyer reiterated
Wednesday that he expects Siler (ankle),
receiver Jemalle Cornelius (ankle) and
defensive end Ray McDonald (knee) to
be able to play against Georgia.
Meyer said McDonald had a good
practice but won't be back to 100 per-
cent on Saturday.
"I don't think he's well enough to
play a full game, but I think he's going
to get in there," Meyer said.
Cornelius and McDonald's health
improvements instill confidence on
both sides of the ball, Meyer said.

Injury slows 'Fifth' Sutton's start with Gators
By DAN TREAT
What are your brothers named?
Well if you're UF freshman Jimmie Sutton, your brother's
name is Jimmie.
And Jimmie again.
4.Sutton, who shares the same name as his father and all
three of his brothers, is commonly referred to as "Fifth." In ad-
edition, he has "Fifth" tattooed on his left tricep and "World"
on his right, and he sports the number five on his jersey.
His brother, Jimmie fIl, plays defensive back for N.C. State
and made a recruiting pitch for the Wolfpack while "Fifth"
was in high school.
"He tried to get me to come up there and play football,"
Sutton said. "But I told him I wasn't going to play football,
and he also gave me good advice, saying football is a lot
harder in college than it is in high school."
The sixth of ten children, Sutton came to UF as perhaps
the least heralded member of his freshman class. Maybe it's

because basketball wasn't always his game.
In addition to being an All-Broward basketball player at
North Broward Prep, he was also All-State in football.
"[Basketball] became a big part because I got bigger,"
Sutton said. "I went from 6-foot-5 to 6-foot-9 real quick, and
football wasn't for me anymore."
A self-described defense-first player, Sutton left North
Broward as the school's all-time leader in both dunks and
blocked shots, after averaging 12.5 points and 10.5 rebounds
his senior year.
He anticipates having a similar function with the Gators.
"My role on the team is just going to be defense and what-
ever Coach [Billy] Donovan gives to me," Sutton said.
While Sutton could provide valuable services to a front-
court lacking depth, before he can develop a role and earn
minutes, he's going to have to return from an ACL tear he suf-
fered in April. It's an injury Donovan described as extremely
"He had a very, very severe ACL in which he tore part of
the bone off his knee cap," Donovan said. "It was probably
about as severe as you could have, so it was a total knee re-
Sutton had the knee rescoped four weeks ago because the
injury had been slowing him down during fall drills. He par-
ticipated in his first, albeit limited-contact, practice Tuesday.
How much he will develop throughout the course of the
season is now largely dependent on how often he is able to
"I'm not worried about his work ethic or his attitude or
how hard he's going to try," Donovan said. "I'm worried
about, like we saw when we started pre-season workouts,
him having constant swelling, him practicing one day and
having to sit out two, just what type of level of consistency
can we get out of him.
"I think it's hard to get any consistency out of a freshman
that's going to be periodically practicing. I think the biggest
thing for him in his growth and development this year would
be if we can have him utilize every single day in practice."
For his part, Sutton is ready to step up and contribute, due
largely in part to the depth issues.
"I don't think I'm going to be too limited," Sutton said. "I
mean, I'm going to have to step up, because we have trouble
on the inside right now."
Swimmers to begin rivalry weekend early against UGA
* LOCHTE IS EXPECTED TO
RETURN TO THE POOL.

As the football team prepares for
its cocktail party this weekend, UF's
swim team will hold a premature
The UF men's and women's
swimming and diving teams
will travel to face Southeastern
Conference rival Georgia today at
The men's team (2-2, 1-0 SEC) is
coming off weekend losses to Texas
and California, but Coach Gregg
Troy did not dwell on the disap-
"The guys swam well," Troy
said. "We just got beat by teams that
are better than us at the moment."
The men's team was without
senior Olympic gold medalist Ryan
Lochte, but Troy expects him to be
back in the pool today.
"I still think Georgia is the
best [women's] team in the
country. We have to swim
well across the field to

While-Troy is hoping the Gators
can get back to their winning ways
against Georgia, he knows the
Bulldogs will put up a fight.
"Georgia is not as deep as we
are," he said. "[But] we always get
their best shot."
The women's team (3-0, 1-0 SEC)
also was missing a key swimmer at
its last meet.
Sophomore Caroline Burckle
battled the flu last weekend and was
unable to participate.
Troy said she will be ready to go
against No. 3 Georgia.
Even though the women were
short-handed, they were still able
to defeat Southern Methodist 125-
118 on Oct. 20 and capture second
place at the Dallas Classic. In a top-
25 poll released Oct. 20, the College
Swimming Coaches Association of
America ranked the women's team
No. 1 in the nation.
But Troy feels that today's op-
ponent should actually be ranked
ahead of the Gators.
"I still think Georgia is the best
[women's] team in the country,"
Troy said. "We have to swim well
. across the field to beat them."
