'Family Matters' star does that to crowd
Andrea Morales/ Alligator Staff
Jaleel White, famous for his role as Steve Urkel on the TV show "Family Matters," signs autographs for fans
during his visit to UF on Thursday night at the University Auditorium.
By KIMBERLY GOUZ
Alligator Contributing Writer
Jaleel White fought back
tears when he described his last
season on "Family Matters."
"That was the one year I
didn't believe I was Steve Urkel
when I hit the stage," he said,
"I heard a snicker, but it's
cool. I'll let you get away with
that," White then said to one of
more than 800 fans who flocked
to see him.
Cameras flashed and fans
screamed as White walked
into a jam-packed University
Auditorium on Thursday night,
making his first public speak-
ing engagement on a college
Despite 25 years in the enter-
tainment industry, White re-
membered for his role as uber-
nerd Steve Urkel in "Family
Matters" seemed genuinely
surprised by the turnout.
"Wow," he said smiling.
"Did I do that?"
White, who entertained the
audience with clever anecdotes
from his years on the show and
beyond, said he is currently
pursuing a career in writing.
"I don't have a zest for
the limelight as much as I
have a zest for the work."
But White hasn't let go of his
roots. He still has big plans for
his acting career.
"I'm ready to raise the ball,"
he said. "One aspect of my ca-
reer that's missing is being able
to go toe-to-toe in a scene with
a guy like Denzel Washington,
or comically, Eddie Murphy,"
White said. "I want to be able to
give guys like them something
to feed off of."
White began doing commer-
cials at age 3, and auditioned
for his first sitcom when he was
8 years old.
The role was for a boy named
Rudy on "The Cosby Show,"

Experts doubted Miers
By GABRIELLA VIGIER
Alligator Contributing Writer
President Bush's acceptance of
Harriet Miers' resignation letter has led
some leaders at UF to question why she
Most are not surprised by the res-
ignation, since Miers received criticism
from both political parties.
"She wasn't winning anyone over,"
said Juan E Perea, professor of law at
Levin College of Law. "She didn't seem
to lessen people's skepticism."
Miers' resignation was also tied to
the political image of the president.
Perea said it would have been al-
most impossible for her to continue in
her nomination and damaging for the
president to continue to support her.
"I think it would have been a bruising
political fight for the president," he said.

Wal-Mart memo draws ire
By ALEXIS LLOYD
As Wal-Mart officials plan to set their roots
in East Gainesville soil, an internal memo to
the company's Board of Directors surfaced
Wednesday, creating a stir.
The memo, from M. Susan Chambers,
Wal-Mart's executive vice president for ben-
efits, proposed ways to keep down healthcare
costs and other benefits while sustaining min-
imal damage to the company's reputation.
The memo included such proposals as hir-
ing more part-time workers and discouraging
unhealthy applicants from being hired. She
suggested dissuading unhealthy applicants
by having all employees participate in some
form of physical activity, such as gathering

Director Phil Barkley of the

Halloween weekend expected to be mild
Police expect regular revelry
* COOL WEATHER A BRIEF
RESULT OF TWO SYSTEMS.
By CHRISTINA CHAMBERS
Alligator Contributing Writer
Cooler weather has come and
almost gone, teasing Gainesville
with the prospect of winter, but at
least one Halloween faithful said
she is grateful for the warmer tem-
peratures when it comes to being
able to have racier costumes.
Amy Marin, a geology major,
said she is glad it will not be as
cold on Halloween because she is
"sticking to the traditional female
Halloween costume of few clothes,
lots of makeup and pizzazz."
She said she plans to dress as a
"scantily clad absinthe fairy," but
also lamented not having an excuse
to stay home in her warm bed.
"I guess I will be going to class
on Monday," she said. "Rats."
David Marsh, chief meteo-
role ;ist for local television station
WE'. I, said since it is the end of
Octo r, the change in weather
should come as no surprise. With
the combination of Hurricane
Wilma passing through Florida
and a large high-pressure system
in the Midwest, there was no doubt
temperatures in Gainesville would
Hurricanes suck in warm, hu-
mid air and expel cool, dry air into
the upper atmosphere. High-pres-
sure systems tend to result in the
air nearby sinking, which brought
cool, dry days to the area.
Marsh, who has been covering
Central Florida weather for 33
years, said warmer temperatures
will return this weekend. Daytime
highs should rise to within the high
70s; at night, it will fluctuate in
the 50s, according to the National
Weather Service Web site.
Meteorologist for the National
Weather Service in Jacksonville
Matt Zibura said temperatures are
returning to "near-normal levels
for this time of year."
The average temperature
Thursday was a high of 79 degrees
and a low of 56 degrees, he said.
Gainesville usually starts to
experience consistently colder tem-
peratures in December, he said.
However, he added that
Floridians can always expect warm
spells throughout the winter.

that many women find them cute and sexy.

Legends of noisy ghoul, suicide haunt university residence halls
* OLD COOK, TOM PETTY
SONG INSPIRED STORIES.
By ANNA SUGGS
Alligator Contributing Writer
Rumors about an impossible
suicide and a disgruntled cook con-
tinue to haunt UF residence life.
Two prevalent ghost stories exist
at UF, Housing Department spokes-
woman Sharon Blansett said.
The first involves a UF student in
the 1970s who allegedly committed
suicide by jumping from her dorm
room window in Beatv Towers.
The towers are located next to 13th
Street, also called U.S. Highway 441,
she said. Many believe this story be-
cause of the song "American Girl"
by Gainesville native Tom Petty,
which is about a young girl killing
herself by jumping from a balcony
"out on 441."
Blansett said there are no records
of any girl jumping from Beaty
Towers, and there are no balconies.
Nick Huber, an 18-year-old
digital arts and sciences major, said
he has heard of the myth. in Beaty
Towers, but the possibility of a girl
jumping from the towers is slim be-
cause the windows are sealed shut.
When asked about ghosts in UF
residence halls, Blansett laughed.
"I think that when it gets to this
time of year, people seem to seek out
Halloween-related thrills," she said.
"There is a thrill in being scared and
making up these kinds of stories."
The second ghost story involves
strange noises in Thomas Hall, one
of the oldest buildings on campus.
Residents claim to hear banging
coming from the heating system
when it's not being used.
Blansett said according to UF
folklore, the noises are caused by the
"There is a thrill in being
scared and making up
these kinds of stories."
ghost of Old Steve, the head cook on
campus in 1906.
Old Steve was disruptive in his
lunch preparations, according to
"A History of UF Residence Halls."
Shouting, cursing, the banging of
pots and pans, the hissing of steam
and the crackling of fire were famil-
iar sounds of Old Steve.
Blansett said there .is no big mys-
tery to the noises heard now. It isjust
an old heating system.
Andrew Nichols, executive
director of the American Institute
of Parapsychology and chairman
of the mental health department at
City College Gainesville Campus,
.said the UF ghost stories are very
entertaining myths, but there is a
big difference between folklore and
actual ghost activity.
Ghosts are just projections from
people's minds, he said, created by
the unconscious mind as a result of
trauma, fear or conflict.

Fee raises proposed
* HEALTH FEE ALONE ASKED
TO RISE 78 CENTS PER HOUR.
By LYNDSEY LEWIS
UF students could be seeing a
Health Fee cost increase of up to 78
cents per credit hour by Fall 2006,
if the university's Fee Committee
votes to accept.proposals by Student
Health Care Center representatives.
At Thursday's meeting of the
Fee Committee, SHCC Director Phil
Barkley requested that UF's general
medical services be allocated a raise
of 67 cents per credit hour, while UF
Counseling Center Director Jackie
Resnick proposed an 11-cent increase.
Students already pay a Health
Fee of $8.44 per credit hour. The fee
goes toward facilities and services in
all SHCC departments.
However, the Counseling Center
is supported primarily by Education
and General subsidies, while SHCC's
main medical sector operates solely
on funding from student fees.
Barkley said SHCC needs the fee
increase to maintain its programs.
"We are going to do things that
are extraordinary at the University of
Florida, and that may include mak-
ing service cuts," he said.
However, committee chairman
Dave Kratzer emphasized that fund-
ing is already tight and that Florida
statutes cap all student-fee increases
at 95 cents per year.
"We are not going to have enough
money to cover all [health costs] this
year," he said. "We already have the
highest health fee in the [state uni-
The 95-cent per-credit-hour maxi-
mum increase is divided between
Activity & Service, Health and
Athletic fees. So far, the committee
has heard a proposal to hike A&S fees
by 84 cents, Student Senate President
John Boyles said. Students pay an
A&SFee of $8.64 per credit hour.
GRE gets makeover

Some graduate school ad-
missions exams, including the
Graduate Record Examination,
will change next year to better
predict graduate-level success.
The GRE, required for ad-
mission to many graduate pro-
grams, will change Oct. 1, 2006.
The new test is four hours
long, up from two-and-a-half
hours, with changes in the ver-
bal and math sections.
S"This is perhaps the larg-
est change the GRE has gone
through in its 55-year history,"
said Ben Baron, vice president
of graduate programs at Kaplan

dents to have to suffer through a
test that is 60 percent longer so
that ETS can save a few bucks,"
She also expressed concern
that students will not be allowed
to use their own calculators,
adding that the on-screen calcu-
lator isn't adequate.
ETS spokesman Tom Ewing
said the changes were made
after the GRE's advisory board
of graduate-level deans and
educators requested the exam
test more reasoning skills.
"They wanted the exam to
reflect more real-life skills," he
said. "They've been wanting to
revamp the GRE for years."
In the verbal portion of the
exam, the antonym and anal-
ogy sections will be eliminated.
Instead, students will be asked
to read a passage and choose the
In the math section, there will
be fewer geometry questions
and more data interpretation
questions using graphs, charts
The exam will be offered only
30 times a year instead of con-.
tinuously. It will also contain the
same questions for each student
while the present format is ad-
justed to individual students.
Currently, the questions are
reused for several tests, but to
reduce cheating the new format
will not reuse any questions.
Also, there are only two
more opportunities to take the
current format of the Medical
College Admission Test before
it changes fromnpaper to online

UF professor becomes president of journalism society

But David Carlson still has the

Earlier this month, the UF

reins as president of the Society of
Though Carlson's office is

SPJ is a national organization of
journalists, both student and profes-
sional, that exists to promote the im-
portance of a free press in the United
States, Carlson said.
The Qrganization promotes jour-

development and advocates First
Amendment rights regarding free-
dom of speech.
During his one-year term as
president, Carlson will have respon-
sibilities that stretch beyond campus
and state boundaries.
He'll have his hand in nearly
everything the society is involved
in, from giving press seminars to
lobbying Congress for journalist-
friendly laws. '
"It's a big job," he said.
It's a position that not only re-
quires dedication, but quite a bit of
traveling as well.
In the next two weeks, he will at-
. tend functionsin Orlando, Fort Worth,
Texas, and Seoul, South Korea.
Carlson, the first professor to be
elected SPJ president, noted that his
newfound responsibilities differ from
many typical figurehead positions
held by other pro-
The amount of
time Carlson had
e n to devote to his
carison SPJ responsibili-
ties forced him to
teach fewer classes this semester, he
said. About 12 hours of his day are
dedicated to SPJ in addition to being
a working professor.
But it's time well spent, he add-
ed, noting he stronglybelieves in the
principles the society promotes.
"SPJ is out there every day on
the front lines working to protect all
journalists," Carlson said. "Not just
its members, but all journalists."
One topic SPJ is focusing on is
federal protection for reporters,
which has become a question of
debate in recent months, most no-
tably in the case of New York Times
reporter Judith Miller.
Miller was recently jailed for not
revealing her sources to a federal
grand jury. In turn, she was sent to
prison for 85 days.
Different states have different
laws regarding journalists and
SPJ advocates a federal "shield
law," which would protect journal-
ists who use confidential sources.
Miller's refusal to reveal her
source earned her an award from
SPJ, which drew criticism from both
journalists and non-journalists alike,
But, he added, she also gave the
society another reason to lobby for
legislation that prevents such a thing
from happening again.
"I will be very active in repre-
senting a journalist's interests in
this area, especially dealing with the
federal shield law," he said.
An ideal federal shield law
would help define a journalist's
privileges to information and also
more clearly define what a journalist
is for example, whether a Weblog
author is protected.
Although it's unlikely, SPJ hopes
the law will define a journalist as
broadly as possible, Carlson said.
The debate about this issue may
even lead him to speak in front of
the U.S. Congress, he said.
"Journalism is always based on
facts," he said. "So, I don't think a
blogger will ever make it."
Former child star to UF fans: 'I don't have a zest for the limelight'
WHITE, from page 1
and he was told the role was practically
guaranteed to him.
But at the last minute, Bill Cosby de-
cided Rudy should be a girl in the sitcom.
"That's why she has a boy's name!"
But White didn't give up there. By the
time he was in seventh grade, he was
ready to transition into the role which
gained him international recognition:
He said his braces and height made him
feel awkward, and he was about ready to
give up when the role came along.
"When I auditioned for 'Family
Matters,' for the first time in my career I
dressed up for the character," White said.
Although White's appearance on
"Family Matters" was, originally planned
as a guest appearance, it was not long be-
fore he earned a full-time spot.
"I got into the role," said White, who
admits to watching episodes
On of "Seinfeld," "The Cosby
':a n---. Show" and "Gilligan's Island"
to get moves for his character.
White said his favorite episodes in-
cluded the one with Bruce Lee and the one
with the pie fight with the .whole family.
"The pies felt like bullets," White said.
He may have made his first million at 15
and stayed at the entire top floor of the Trump
Tower when he visited New York City, but
White said he's "just keeping' it real."
While some may have expected him to
end up on the reality show, "The Surreal
Life" on VH1, White said he doesn't want
to be on the show.
"I don't have a zest for the limelight
as much as I have a zest for the work,"
Healthier and younger employees hired to keep company healthcare costs low
WAL-MART, from page 1
since full-time employees, who earn about $17,500 annu-
ally, could possibly face out-of-pocket expenses of $2,560
a year more than 15 percent of their incomes.
"Wal-Mart has a long history of manipulating social
infrastructure," said David O'Gorman, SFCC economics
professor. "The enormous benefit to a community and the
consumer is pretty suspect."
In a statement released Wednesday by Wal-Mart
Corporate Communications, officials stated, "we're fortu-
nate that we offer pretty good benefits to begin with as
good as our competitors and, in many cases, better."
However, with every business in America facing the
"harsh reality of skyrocketing healthcare costs," Wal-Mart
officials are being faced with one question in their board-
rooms: "How do we balance genuine desire to provide the
best benefits to employees,, while remaining competitive
in the global economy?"
The company announced a new plan Monday that
sought to increase participation in healthcare benefits
by allowing some of its employees to pay $11 a month in
premiums included in their regular plan.
The statement also indicated Wal-Mart will improve
access to medical care by providing in-store clinics to
keep down emergency room expenses, among other ac-
All of these initiatives are ways that Wal-Mart officials
are trying to improve benefits for their employees and
become leaders and drivers of change.
"There's a movement that is anti-Wal-Mart and big-
box stores," said Gainesville City Commissioner Jack
Donovan. "This is largely because [big businesses] come
from outside a community."
Wal-Mart can become competition-free, Donovan said.
"I have been following that literature as close as I can,"
he said. "For every one job available at a big business,-the
local community loses more than 1.5 jobs."
However, Donovan -said that in the long run, "what
might not be so great for the whole city might actually
benefit East Gainesville."

on Machen for pledging Wednesday to reduce waste disposal
On-Campus Sustainability Day, Machen announced his
plans to get rid of all the university's waste by 2015. We ap-
plaud the goal, but Machen has to do much more than talk to
complete the plan.
His speech was overly vague. He said UF will increase
incentives for employees who carpool, but he didn't specify
what those incentives would be. He said that excess lights in
campus buildings are already dimmed but didn't say how
much energy that saves. And he only said UF would try to set
heating and cooling systems at optimum efficiency.
We support the idea, but we want specifics.

despicable, is not criminal.

If you're like most Alligator readers, you probably paid
little attention to the all-too-brief soap opera we ran in
these pages involving UF instructor Charles Grapski's
lawsuit against university President.Bernie Machen.
Guy doesn't like Florida Blue Key. Machen refuses to
help guy. Guy sues Machen. Alligator covers the crap out
of it because it's anti-FBK nothing new, right?
Unfortunately, Machen and the UF administration are
banking on sentiments such as that.
What may have seemed to be one disgruntled em-
ployee's battle against an old boys club in reality had the
potential to strike a serious blow to the administration's
flippant attitude toward the law.
The issue at stake here is the public's right to have
access to its government. UF, to put it simply, doesn't be-
lieve it is a public institution except for when it's time
for those checks from the state government to come in.
Grapski sued Machen because Machen refused to
hand over e-mails connected to FBK.
This might not seem strange to you. Who wants to
give up his private e-mail?
But in this case, we aren't talking about Machen's pri-
vate e-mail. As a public official; all e-mail he sends in his
official capacity as president including those related to
FBK are public records.
Check Title X, Chapter 119 of the Florida statutes,
available online at leg.state.fl.us/statutes, if you want
to confirm any of these details. You'll find, among other
things, that electronic communication is covered under
public-records law and that public officials are required
to maintain those records.
If you haven't caught on yet, let me spell it out for
you: .Machen broke the law when he deleted- those e-
mails, and he broke the law again when he refused to
give them to Grapski.
But no court precedent has been established regarding
e-mail. While e-mails undoubtedly will be placed in the
disrespect the law
same public-records category as
letters, voicemail and other forms
of correspondence, the right court
case hasn't arrived to prove this.
This could have been that case.
Instead, a sympathetic judge
Matt Sanchez threw out the case based on a
In Moderation technicality: The suit implied
email@example.com that Grapski received no records
from Machen. In fact, Grapski
did receive some though they
weren't the ones he wanted.
Grapski will be allowed to clarify his statements and
re-file the lawsuit, and hopefully he will do so.
As UF students, we can't afford to be in the dark about
the actions of the administrators who run, our school.
Machen's denial of Grapski's request wasn't the first
time the administration flaunted its disrespect for the
law, nor will it be the last.
UF administrators have denied countless legal re-
quests for public records, kept secret or denied student
access to legally open meetings, and allowed Student
Government to do the same.

But this is bigger than this one incident.

cords law and worse, if it .turns out they are because
no one is willing to challenge them what could they
get away with next?

UF's automotive blackmail demands student demonstration
In the history of audacious
frauds perpetrated upon
unsuspecting citizens of the
world, perhaps none is more
daring, more blatant and more
contemptuous of its victims than
the current scheme of automotive
blackmail in place at this univer-
With a guaranteed number of
students attending classes every
day and a woefully inefficient
citywide transportation system,
our upstanding alma mater is
faced with a glaring problem:
the incredibly deficient number
of parking spaces in relation to
One would think the reason-
able answer to such a dilemma
would be to finance and construct
a series of parking garages or lots
free of charge to students since
they are already compelled to
pay for this university's courses.
However, UF, in all its wisdom,
has decided upon a radically dif-
ferent course of action.
Instead of attempting to al-
leviate the problem, or even de-
prioritizing parking infractions, it
has chosen to implement a deliber-
ately confusing system of parking
sections to the effect that, even
when students pay more than $100
of their hard-earned blood, sweat
and tears, they are still unable to
park anywhere on campus.
Evidently, the right to park is
hot universal, resulting in nothing
but mind-numbing yet ineffectual
frustration on the part of students
and increased revenue for this al-
ready bloated institution of greed.
This legalized system of extor-
tion ranks among the most bril-
liant frauds ever practiced upon
the public. Not only are students
denied the option simply not to
come since they pay for classes,
the arm-wrenching is approved
by the very institution we are
meant to praise and look to for
guidance in times of need.
Yet the university pulls a feat
similar to the emperor's new
clothes, hoping that by shining
light on the problem, everyone
will be blinded or simply avoid
looking at the glare.
And sadly enough, this
stratagem has been marvelously
efficient for the most part. The
Abdulnour hasn't held a
Speaking Out mass dem-
opposition to such a tortuously
coercive parking plan. Student
Government has not really dis-
cussed actual solutions to this
problem. And without some sort of
organized form of dissent, the uni-
versity will undoubtedly continue
on its illicit path of financial terror:
financing its expenditures through
the piecemeal extortionL from each
student as he parks for class.
In the words of another brilliant
mind who opposed similar black-
mail, we must "join or die." In the
absence of unified revolt, albeit
through peaceful means, the only
concessions we will ever see are
more garages like the Reitz Union,
which not only fails to compensate
for the influx of new students but
also charges a daily fee.
This ridiculous parking policy
cannot be allowed to survive.
Strike it down now without re-
straint, or risk extortion for time
eternal. As Churchill said, "It is
not the actions of bad men which
condemn us. It is the inaction of
good men standing by."
Without organized rebellion,
this legalized criminal procedure
will continue. For the sake of otir
self-respect, if not our wallets, let
us join together in opposition to
such tyrannous actions.
Benjamin Abdulnour is a philoso-
phy and political science senior.

Girls take rugby to prom for charity
Decked out in frilly dresses, the UF Women's Rugby Club
competes in its annual Rugby Prom game Thursday.
* THE UF WOMEN'S RUGBY
CLUB RAISED $200 FOR A CAN-
By DIANA MAZZELLA
The women wore cleats and knee-
high socks with dresses that were
purple and sparkly, pink with bows
and patterned with bright florals.
The UF Women's Rugby club
played its fifth annual prom scrim-
mage Thursday night at the University
Village South Field, with 70 people
watching the women tatter and dirty
their prom dresses for charity.
The players said they wore dress-
es purchased from thrift stores.
UF athletic trainer Mark Sutherlini,
who was assigned to watch the
match, said it was his first time
watching Rugby Prom.
He said the most eye-catching
dress was the one he described as a
"metallic purple" which had a ruffle
at the waist.
Freshman Jamie Arjona said she
paid about $5 for her blue floor-
length dress at a local thrift store.
"I know. It's a stunner," she said.
She did not play because of an
injury but still wore her dress with
crutches and watched the team play.
"It's outrageous, and I think
people really enjoy watching
it. You're waiting to hear the
dresses rip. That's the hilari-
ous part of it."
Rugby Club vice president
She said she thought one of the
more creative dresses was a pink
dress cut unevenly above the knees
with three rosettes in the back and a
Another was the long purple dress
with puffed sleeves, she said.
As the game progressed, some
players added a T-shirt to their en-
sembles; others played in only part
of the dress. One player was wearing
a bodice without the skirt, showing
Sophomore Devin Huber said
the game is fun and helps the team
Club Vice President Abby
Herstich said she thought attendees
want to see the irony of women play-
ing a sport that many people think
makes them more masculine while
"It's outrageous, and I think
people really enjoy watching it,"
Herstich said. "You're waiting to
hear the dresses rip. That's the hilari-
ous part of it."
Club Treasurer Allison Fischman
said donations at the event totaled
about $200 for the SUNNA Cancer
Support Program for Women, a part of
UF Women's Health Research Center.
"This is my favorite game of the
semester," she said.

Moore, 21, said this is just another example
of the president's inability to choose qualified
individuals for important positions.
"The Bush administration often appoints
unqualified cronies, like former FEMA
Director Michael Brown, to important posi-
tions," he said. "I think this is just another
example of the larger culture of cronyism that
exists in the Bush White House."
Perea, however, said he believes Miers
could have made a plausible Supreme Court
"In my personal opinion, she was certainly
qualified by virtue of education and experi-
ence," he said. "However, her qualifications
were different from many other nominees'."
He mentioned that the late William H.
Rehnquist had not served as a judge before
becoming chief justice of the Supreme Court,
and he finds it interesting that prerequisites
for a seat on the court seem to have changed
in recent years.
Perea also added the Constitution doesn't
actually have a set of requirements when it
comes choosing a judge, but he believes the
Senate does not press hard enough when it
comes to questions on nominees' beliefs.
"I continue to be disappointed that the
Senate doesn't press on that," he said. "The
public has a right to know."
A nominee's beliefs are the main way the
public can determine how he or she will rule
on different national issues, he said.
Tommy Jardon, 21, an economics major
and a member of College Republicans, said
he believes the Democrats will criticize any
nominee the president chooses.
"I think they'll get off it pretty quick and
redirect their cannons at the coming indict-
ments and whoever the new nominee is,"
He also said he believes Miers will be re-
placed within several days.
"I give until tomorrow. Monday at the ab-
solute latest," he said.
Perea also made a prediction.
"My prediction is the president will choose
someone safe, like Roberts," he said.
Perea also added that he believed Roberts
was actually a good choice.
"He's as good as the Democrats will get
from a conservative president."

Lately, it seems the Gators have
been trying to prove him correct.
Trying to grasp the same spread

with at Utah and Bowling Green,
UF has exactly one sustained
touchdown drive against ranked
opponents this season.
Now, Meyer says it's time for
his coaching staff to adapt UF's
offense to its playmakers, just like
he promised since his first days in
"The job of a coach is to adapt
a so-called system. I've always
said there isn't a system," Meyer
said. "The system has to adapt to

we've done a great job at that.
"You can't just say, 'Here's the

some point it's going to fail."
Against Louisiana State on Oct.
15, the offense managed -just 206
total yards, including a 107-yard,

terback Chris Leak.
Leak, who has had trouble run-

traditional drop-back passer, could
have the opportunity to excel at
what he knows how to do.
"Coach Meyer said he's going
to play us to what we do best, but
it's just little things like maybe
moving the pocket some more,"
Leak said. "Just doing things that

Gators show emotion in scrimmage

Although practices are usually dosed, the
UF basketball team squared off in an open
scrimmage on Thursday.
And while the Blue squad soundly defeated
the White, 64-24, don't let the score fool you.
The Blue team featured Corey Brewer (10
points), Lee Humphrey (14 points), Joakim

The White had just two experienced players
in Al Horford (5 points) and Taurean Green (8
points) for much of the game.

"The thing that's good about it is that they
got frustrated and 'upset because they're com-

"If they didn't care, it wouldn't bother them,
but it bothers them deeply. They probably felt
a level of embarrassment because their team
didn't play too well."
Donovan said that it's important for Green

Victory will secure SEC title
* GATORS ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF A
GRUELING ROAD STRETCH.
By BRYAN JONES
The Southeastern Conference schedule mak-
ers probably won't be receiving any Christmas
cards from the Gators this year.
UF volleyball coach Mary Wise was anything
but thrilled to open the SEC volleyball schedule
with three matches on the road. Now, UF will
have to endure four more consecutive away
matches in the season's stretch run.
If the Gators maintain their unblemished
conference record throughout the grueling road
trip, they will clinch their 15th consecutive SEC
title before returning home for their final two
conference matches. The No. 4 Gators (20-1, 10-0
SEC) will begin their travels Friday night against
South Carolina (10-10, 3-7).
On Sunday, UF will take on its biggest rival:
Tennessee (13-7, 7-3). The Volunteers defeated
the Gators twice last season, ending UF's .145-
match winning streak in regular season confer-
ence matches and its streak of 121 overall confer-
ence victories. Both are NCAA records.
While the Gators defeated both teams 3-0 in
Gainesville earlier this season, victories may be a
little more difficult to come by on the road.
PICKS, from page 17
replaced by an even bigger tool named Ronald Reagan.
"The Buck Belue pass to Lindsey Scott is the greatest
play in Georgia history, and it gave them the champion-
ship," Steedman recalls. "I jumped up and hit the ceiling
so hard that I almost broke finger."
Apparently, breaking bones is a Steedman trademark,
because his wife recently took a nasty spill.'
"The pecans are just beginning to come in, and I'm just
getting ready to open the store, but I wish I was down in
Jacksonville if only my wife hadn't been a fool and broken
her arm playing tennis," Steedman said.
As for the rest of us pickers, leading the pack once
again at 46-24 but watching his lead slowly vanish is
resident-perfectionist Bryan "I only need 18 more credit
hours and I will have graduated before the age of 30"
Despite holding season records of 10-10 and
13-7, respectively, South Carolina and Tennessee
are a combined 9-1 at home this season.
Factor in the huge target on UF's back due to
their reputation as a perennial powerhouse, and
the Gators could be in store for a more difficult
weekend than any record could indicate.
The Ge ---joke aboutbeing the "band team,"
Wise said, because schools that don't normally
have their band play at home matches will often
bring out the band when they play UF.
"We know the target on our back is pretty
big," Wise said. "With the tradition of the pro-
gram, we've built that. As a coach, you would
much rather have that than the match that no
one shows up for. I think it is great reflection
on our program that we get everybody's best

Safety completing journey from. cyberspace to stardom
By ERIC ESTEBAN
Alligator Staff Writer
Long before they chanted his name, they
were well aware of who he was and what he
was capable of.
Before they knew who Brandon Siler,
Jeremy Mincey or Markus Manson were,
he was at the center of every conversation
that dealt with who would be the next face
of UF football.
Legions of fans followed his recruit-
ing trail. From elementary school and
Pop Warner leagues up through Palm Bay/
High School, with a pit stop at CoffeyvilJ)
Community College in Kansas, defensive
back Reggie Nelson was a wanted man.
For three years, question upon 4ues-
tion piled up-on Gators' fan Web sits and
message boards wondering about Nelson's
status. Nicknamed "the Thread" for all the
topics started about his status ald where-
abouts, everyone had an opinioAi to give or
inquiry to spout.
"How's Reggie doing inr JUCO?" one
topic would read. "Reggie Nlelson: the next
great Gator safety," read ydt another topic,
while he was trying to qualify for UF after
two years at junior college.
"UF fans just knew ehow. good he was,"
said Jamie Newburg, akecruiting analyst for
Scout.com. "It lasted to the end, and then
he didn't qualify. Then, no one was sure he
was going to make it in school. So it always
seemed like the U1. fans were kind of hang-
ing onto Reggie,Aust hoping."
No one is really sure exactly when
Nelson burst /onto the Floridian football
It might have been that first big hit in
the Pop Warner leagues, or perhaps it was
his relentless motor in middle school. But
when it came time for college recruiting,
Nelson had options from the top college
football powerhouses in the country. UF,
Florida State, Louisiana State, Oklahoma
and Miami all came knocking with scholar-
Sev- en games into his long-awaited first
year in Gainesville, it's been Nelson's big-
/time hitting and quiet smile that has the
Gator Nation giddy. He is the one athlete
that every self-proclaimed pundit had
tabbed as an inevitable playmaker before
his first scholarship offer had even been
sent in the mail.
Early Ascent to Humble Stardom
At Palm Bay High.in Melbourne, Coach
Dan Burke was used to making his rounds to
local feeder middle and elementary schools
in hope of finding the next big prospect.
The area had already produced quality
athletes, such as current UF center Mike
But when Burke made his first trip to
scout young talent at Stone Middle, just
down the street from Palm Bay, he knew he
had witnessed an absolute player with the
potential to be a true star.
"Even as a high school, we would try to
get out to the youth-league parks at least
once or twice a year, and we noticed him
immediately," Burke said. "As a freshman
player, he returned punts, but by thVplay-
offs, he was already starting for us Xhd mak-
ing plays in the playoffs that year."
His impact was immediate, even as a
155-pound, 14-year-old freshman lineback-
er. While most kids his age had their hands,.
filled with avoiding the resident schoolyard
bully, Nelson was becoming Melbourne's
Along with linebacker, he played wide
receiver, safety and running back. He made
plays at every position.
"One thing that there isn't a shortage
of with him is talent," Burke said. "I know
Florida is struggling at receiver, and I think
he could even be effective as a fifth receiver
there because he's just the type of player
that knows how to disrupt things on either
side of the ball." >
While Reggie's talents could be utilized
on the offensive side of the field, his love
of hitting fuels him on the defense. His
accumulate .stats in~tigh school led to a
mountain of aesolpdes. As a senior, he re-
corded 169 tacke\s53 assists and 10 sacks
on defense and[ caught 18 passes for 354
yards on orfense. N3eson registered 150
tackles ala junior.
TlI Pirates won state titles in 2000 and
2002, but the humble Nelson never was one
to trash talk.
"One thing with him is that success will
never change him," Burke said. "He truly
loves the game, starting or not, he's the type
of kid that is willing to bide his time and
help the team in any way possible."
Same Place, New Face
Nelson wouldn't make it to UF right
away. Academic woes forced him to spend\
two years at Coffeyville Community
College in Kansas. While the fans back
home still remembered his name, Nelson
was making sure he -was on the path back
to UF He led the Red Ravens to a No. 3

Urban Meyer's Gators take three.
UF hasn't won either of its last two key
Southeastern Conference games.
So, the Gators are on the verge of a monumental
collapse that could put the team in a late-December
game that could be a downgrade from last year's
' After all the disappointment for Meyer and the
Gators this season, a single victory against Georgia
on Saturday would suddenly make UF a viable, can-
didate for the SEC East crown.
And with the Bulldogs' starting quarterback likely
sidelined for the most important gare in Meyer's UF
career, the Gators seem to be ipla prine position to
leave Jacksonville's Alltel Stadium withsa victory.
Then again, the Gators haven't exactl~ystepped it
up when it's counted in recent seasons.'
"There's a lot at stake and a lot on the line," de-
fensive end Jarvis Moss said. "We just have to' come
but ready Saturday and just play and have fun, and I
think everything will take care of itself."
The Gators enter this game losing two of their last,
three games, with the one victory coming against
Mississippi State, one of the worst teams in the SEC.
"* 'The offense that was supposed to be UF's greatest
Strength this season has been practically nonexistent,
and the Gators have struggled to adapt to Meyer's
schemes that were so successful at Utah.
:. Meanwhile, Georgia has steamrolled to an unde-
feated season and a No. 4 national ranking.
But just as the Bulldogs expected to defeat the
)ators in back-to-back seasons for the first time
since the late 1980s, Georgia starting quarterback D.J.

a tough UF defense. s
So, with Georgia/ main offensive weapon side-
lined and UF's offense reeling, the first teamlo score
on Saturday could secure a victory.
j "We're still confident," said defensive end jeremy
Mincey. "This is a ig game, a big rivalry. The last
couple years [prior to 2004], we've been taking care
of [Georgia]. Hopefully we can do it again."
In recent seasons, this gane Lhas been no contest.
UF has won all but two games in the series since
1990, although Georgia managed to defeat the Gators
But the Gators also know that the favored team
which, in this case, is UF doesn't always win.
Both in 2002 and 2003, Georgia was ranked in the top
five in the nation, and the Gators were ranked in the
20s. However, both times UF managed to steal the
victory from one of its most bitter rivals.
"Our fans expect us to beat everybody, and that's
what we need to start doing," defensive end Joe
Cohen said. "We can't come out half stepping. We
need to come out full speed at the beginning of the

? How They Match Up
FLORIDA RUN vs GEORGIA RUN DEFENSE:
Florida rushes for 146.6 yards per game; UGA allows 109.0 yards rushing per game.
KEY PLAYERS: UF: Jr. TB DeShawn Wynn (76 att.-358 yds., 4.7 avg., 7 TDs), Fr. TB Markus Manson (26-
149, 5.6, 0) UGA: Jr. LB Jarvis Jackson (40 tackles-20 solo), Jr. LB Danny Verdun Wheeler (38-30)
ANALYSIS: It took about two-thirds of a season, but Wynn finally played his way into a permanent
starting role against LSU. Georgia's run defense ranks just fifth in the SEC, and Wynn proved he could
run against quality SEC defenses, gaining 98 yards on 16 carries against LSU.
FLORIDA PASS vs. GEORGIA PASS DEFENSE:
Florida passes for 236.6 yards per game: UGA allows 183.9 yards passing per game.
KEY PLAYERS: UF: Jr. QB Chris Leak (1,575 yds., 10 TDs-4 INTs, 58.9 pct., 132.4 rating), Jr. Chad Jackson
(52 rec., 558 yds., 10.7 avg.. 6 TDs); Jr. Dallas Baker (32, 431, 13.5, 2) UGA: Sr. FS Greg Blue (57 tackles-
41 solo), Jr. ROV Tra Battle (43-25)
ANALYSIS: Going up against a tough Georgia secondary isn't exactly the perfect remedy for a reeling UF TM
offense. The Gators have yet to prove they can pass against a top SEC defense.
GEORGIA RUN vs. FLORIDA RUN DEFENSE:
UGA rushes for 170.0 yards per game; Florida allows 95.9 yards rushing per game. ,-
KEY PLAYERS: UGA: So. TB Thomas Brown (81 att.-432 yds., 5.3 avg., 2 TDs), So. TB Danny Ware (63-
302, 4.0, 8) UF: So. LB Brandon Siler (40 tackles-19 solo), Jr. LB Earl Everett (42-21)
ANALYSIS: This is the second consecutive game the Gators face a team with two tailbacks capable
of serious damage. Brown and Ware are dangerous players, and both will carry the load with QB D.J.
Shockley out for the game.
GEORGIA PASS vs. FLORIDA PASS DEFENSE:
Georgia passes for 250.1 yards per game; Florida allows 176.0 yards passing per game.
KEY PLAYERS: UGA: Jr. QB Joe Tereshinski (207 yds.. 0 TDs-1 INT, 56.5 pct.. 123.4 rating), Sr. WR Bryan
S McClendon (20 rec., 287 yds., 14.4 avg., 2 TDs). Jr. TE Leonard Pope (17, 262, 15.4, 1), UF: Sr. CB Vernell
SI Brown (30 tackles-23 solo) Sr. SS Jarvis Herring (26-18)
S__ ANALYSIS: Shockley's out, and UF's secondary is salivating at the thought of going up against Tereshinski.
Reggie Nelson has moved from cornerback to free safety, which could'solve UF's problem at that position.
The Gators' passing defense has been solid all season.
FLORIDA KEY PLAYERS: Jr. Kicker Chris Hetland (8-8, 47 long) Sr. Punt Returner, Vernell Brown (22 att., 6.0
avg., 22 long) UGA: So. Kicker Brandon Coutu (16-19, 58), Jr. Punter Gordon Ely-Kelso (29 att., 42.6 avg.,
ANALYSIS: Hetland's perfect field goal season is impressive, but Coutu's attempted more than double the
amount of field goals and completed all but three including a 58-yarder. UF's special teams is solid, but TM
the Gators are still struggling in punt and kick returns.
I" INTANGIBLES: The stars must have aligned Urban Meyer's way this week, because just when he
needed something to go right for the Gators, Georgia quarterback D.J. Shockley goes down and UF's
hopes sky-rocketed. This should be old-fashioned SEC football: a low scoring, smash-mouth game with
a ton of defense. And the Gators should do just enough to prevail.
