Rule forces revision
* GROUPS SCRAMBLE TO
COMPLY WITH NEW LAW.
By DAVID COHEN
Student organizations have be-
gun to diversify their events, but
some still do not agree with the
new rule that has forced them to
be creative with their spending.
Officials of events such as Pride
Awareness Month and Hispanic
Heritage Month were told at the
beginning of the special-events
budgeting process for 2006-07
that they could not spend more
thari 50 percent of their budgets
on speakers and performances.
The plan was put into place
three weeks ago by Student
Government in an attempt to di-
versify programming. But some
organizations did not approve.
"It caused a lot of headaches,"
said Asian American Student
Union President Sandy Chiu.
AASU had hoped to bring the
group Lyrics Born at a proposed
$8,000 for Kaleidoscope Month,
but the band was cut because the
concert pushed them over the 50
percent limit. AASU's total event
budget for 2006-07 is $25,236.
"There's still hope," Chiu said
of Possibly hosting the band for
November 2006. "You can only.
fight SG so much."

Gators jump to No. 13
By LOUIS ANASTASIS

JACKSONVILLE With nobody but his wife,
his coaches and his players in on the joke, Urban
Meyer finally had something to smile about.
Who would have guessed that the mastermind
behind the innovative spread offense had some-
thing much more orthodox up his sleeve?
"[Friday night] he was feeling really posi-
tive and really upbeat about this game," Shelley.
And why not? Taking a page out of the MTV
show's script, Meyer Punk'd Georgia using a tra-
ditional-style offense he unveiled for the first time
Saturday. When it was said and done, it was UF
that had just spoiled the Bulldogs' perfect season.
And it was UF that had just resuscitated
its chances for a Southeastern Conference
"It gives you another week to hope," line-
backer Todd McCullough said. "Our backs were
against the wall. We came out firing, made the
plays we needed to make and we're still alive."
Now, after downing No. 4 Georgia 14-10,
the Gators must defeat Vanderbilt and South
Carolina and have Georgia lose to Auburn in two
weeks to clinch a trip to Atlanta for the SEC title
"I'm a die-hard Auburn fan right now," defen-
sive tackle Marcus Thomas said.
UF's offense came out smoking to start the
game an oddity in itself soaring to a 14-0 lead
in the first quarter. The only thing more shocking

* A TEAM IS WORKING TO
PLANT FLORIDA PUMPKINS.
By ASHLEY SHEWEY
Alligator Contributing Writer
Whether carved or eaten,
pumpkins are a Halloween treat;
but growing them locally has been
a tricky business.
Due to Florida's warm climate,
pumpkins can't be grown on most
local farms and are shipped in
from other states
UF when they are in
while not the kind normally seen
with devilish grins on Halloween
night, researchers at the UF
Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences have identified eight
heat-tolerant pumpkin varieties
that can grow in Florida's climate,
a finding that may compel farmers
to diversify their crops, especially
those who grow potatoes.
"We want to keep our farm-
ers in business," said Chad
Hutchinson, an assistant professor
of horticulture science at UF. "We
can provide them with another
crop after potato season."
Doug Gergela, a biological
scientist at UF, said the varieties of
pumpkins the research was based
on show good promise in Florida.
"The biggest benefit is just
the ability to be able to produce a
decent yield under our growing
conditions," he said.
Varieties suitable for this area
of the state include Racer, School
Time, Jack-Be-Little, Munchkin,
Hybrid Pam, Trickster, Cinderella
and Long Island Cheese, Gergela
"The Cinderella and Long
Island Cheese aren't the typi-
cal Halloween type pumpkin
though," he said. "Cinderella is a
reddish orange color and flat. Long
Island Cheese is tan and flat."
Gergela said he is also inter-
ested in the Calabaza a popular
variety in Latin American cultures

Man tries to run over officer
A Palm Bay man was arrested
Friday for the attempted murder
of a police officer, according to
High Springs police.
Kenneth Stafford, 38, was
pulled over by High Springs of-
ficer Deborah Holley on suspicion
of drunk driving, an arrest report
stated. When she noticed an open
alcohol container in Stafford's car,
she asked him to step out of his car.
After observing a pipe and
rolling papers on the driver's seat,
Holley tried to arrest Stafford, re-
When Stafford realized he was
about to be arrested, he reportedly
shouted obscenities at the officer
and jumped back into his car in
an attempt to flee. However, he

point he again got out of the car
and charged at Holley, tackling
her and shoving her face to the
Stafford then got back in his
car and attempted to run her over
before he fled.
A few minutes later, police
found Stafford's car crashed. A
K-9 unit sniffed out Stafford, who
was hiding in a nearby wooded
area. The pipe in his car was tested
positive for crack cocaine.
Among a few misdemeanors,
he was charged with four felonies:
attempted murder, battery of a

Last week, the Pride Student Union

within the spending limit. Its total event
budget for the next fiscal year is $25,578.

before deciding to invest in pumpkins is the ne-

susceptible to local disease and insects.
"To commercially grow pumpkins organi-

A farmer also would need one honeybee
hive for every one to two acres to help with pol-
lination, he added.
Despite the difficulties, three- organiza-

UF's offensive line had its

Libby indictment just
hints at bigger picture
. Lewis "Scooter" Libby has been indicted for lying about his
involvement in leaking the name of CIA operative Valerie
What can the Editorial Board say? We feel overjoyed, vindi-
cated, righteous, fulfilled; the evildoers of our government are
falling fast for their crimes against the American people.
But does anyone really know what's going on?
This case has proven to be endlessly complex and.muddled.
The secrecy of a grand jury has certainly contributed to the
ambiguity, but an outside factor also has added a chunk of
The media are the biggest losers in this fiasco thus far.
It all started with New York Times reporter Judith Miller and
her disingenuous championing of source confidentiality.
The Times initially presented Miller as a martyr for the integ-
rity of journalism. Because of her steadfast belief in a journalist's
duty to a source, Miller spent almost three months in jail. She
only agreed to testify when Libby called her and gave her per-
mission to break confidentiality.
That turned sour when the Times revealed that Miller had
her lawyer contact Libby; Miller had previously claimed she
wouldn't break her promise unless Libby called her on his own,
without any outside pressure.
Furthermore, neither the publisher nor the editors of the
Times asked Miller for her notes on her conversations with
Libby. They just blindly supported her.
But what's most disturbing is that Miller considered Libby a
credible source in the first place.
Here's a hint about anonymous government .sources: If
they're always speaking positively about the government, then
there's no reason for them to be anonymous. They're simply
acting as undercover mouthpieces, and anonymity gives them
Libby had agenda written all over him. Everything he told
Miller was obviously crafted to benefit his employers. Any re-
porter who would think that's a good source is delusional.
Miller might as well have been talking to Cheney's public
relations officer. It would be like the Alligator learning about UF
President Bernie Machen's public records habits by citing posi-
tive and anonymous comments from the provost.
We can't help but think this case has some similarities to
Watergate. But Mark Felt, or "Deep Throat," risked his job by
talking to reporters. And while most people can give a simple
outline of Nixon's downfall, not many can pinpoint what
threatens Karl Rove and Dick Cheney.
The.press is largely to blame. Newspapers needlessly re-
ported on Miller, constantly quoting the Times' publisher and
his belief that Miller was crusading for ethical journalists.
But if today's journalists and newspapers were doing their
job correctly, we would know more about what's really going
on in the White House.
At this point, we're stuck with confusing documents and
contradicting opinions. And this case is far from doing what it
set out to do.
Libby was not indicted for actually leaking Planme's name; he
was indicted for lying about it.
The indictment claims that Cheney told Libby about Plame
and then Libby went around to reporters and leaked the infor-
mation. If it's true that Libby categorically told reporters about
Plame, then those reporters should be open about it.
Cheney and Rove likely are involved in this malicious act.
Instead of defending Libby and claiming innocence, the govern-
ment must be forced to take responsibility.
But that will only happen if the press once again works for
the people. It must discard its insincere ethical dilemmas and
resume its watchdog function.

Liberals' crisis worse than Republicans'
t's a lousy time to be a Republican, but it could be
worse. You could be a liberal.
Former Republican House Majority Leader Tom
DeLay is facing trial for a campaign-finance scheme. Vice
President Dick Cheney's chief of staff has been indicted for
leaking the name of a CIA operative.
Bush's Supreme Court nominee was withdrawn after
being attacked by forces from within the Republican Party.
According to a recent poll, a majority of Americans now
believe the Iraq war was the wrong thing to do. And let's
not forget that Bush's approval ratings have hit an all-time
low of about 39 percent.
Little more than a year ago, Republicans performed
amazingly in the 2004 elections, probably exceeding even
Karl Rove's wildest dreams. Now, more and more con-'
servatives are complaining about their leadership. Even
some of the neo-cons think Bush has lost his way on gov-
ernment spending arnd Iraq.
Democrats have never been so gleeful. I even saw on
Facebook.com that some of the UF College Democrats
were throwing a costume party where guests were sup-
posed to dress up as Republican crooks.
But though Republicans seem to be dropping the ball,
one thing is certain: It still sucks more to be a liberal.
If Republicans are beginning to lack direction and co-
hesion, they are only getting a taste of what Democrats
have been feeling for the past 30 years.
Modem American liberalism died' out as an effective
ideology before it ever truly found its feet. What we now
call liberalism is little more than a puzzling blend of race
demagoguery, extreme feminism, hare-brained environ-
mentalism, European-style socialism and pacifism.
To call modem liberals reactionary would be too polite.
Taking Up Arms
They are united only by their
cynicism of Bush's war on terror
and their view that conservative
stances on gay marriage, gun
control and abortion are embar-
Instead of doing what's
right, liberals do what's easy. In
the 2004 presidential election,
Democrats chose a candidate
whose only appealing quality
was that he wasn't Bush.
Instead of offering their own solution to fixing Social
Security, Democrats decided to scare old people out of
their wits and unconditionally shoot down Bush's plan.
Instead of telling Americans that democracies take
longer than three years to build, Democrats pretend the
United States never had a chance in Iraq or should have
already finished the job.
So take heart conservatives. Democrats will not capi-
talize on Republicans' current foibles because the closest
thing liberals have to an ideological leader is Jon Stewart.
The closest thing they have to a hero is either Michael
Moore or Cindy Sheehan.
The Republican leadership's current problems are
nothing compared to the mounting challenges facing
Democrats in a world where liberalism is increasingly
irrelevant. It may be tempting for conservatives to bow
down to popular opinion on issues like the war in Iraq,
but doing what's right is frequently unpopular and rarely

Letters to the Editor
Coulter not a satirist but a vile pundit
In Friday's Alligator, Katie Vitale wrote
that the Alligator took Ann Coulter's com-
ments out of context. Apparently, Coulter is
This is wrong. Ambrose Bierce, Kurt
Vonnegut and Voltaire are satirists. Coulter's
gay-baiting, Arab-bashing, liberal-thrashing,
war-loving, factually challenged, divisive
tripe is not satire. Instead, her work occupies
the lowest rung of political discourse.
Reasonable conservative outlets stopped
publishing her columns after she advocated
invading an Arab country and converting
its leaders to .Chnsb.ant, out of *spite.
Conservative intellectuals run the other way
rather than share a tae nith her
If you want to listen to Coulter, go ahead,
but don't hide behind the facade of decency.
Please, proudly admit your love for this loath-
some political pundit who publishes noxious
diatribes that appeal to your most base and
morally corrupt instincts.
Miner.not facing expulsion for comment
Friday's editorial contains false informa-
tion about Ryan Miner. Miner does riot face
expulsion at this time. He is appealing be--
ing found: responsible for his comments on
Duquesne has never mentioned expulsion
as a possible punishment. Miner has said he is
willing to be expelled rather than do his pun-
ishment, which is to write a 10-page paper on

SG committee not working for students
Let's suspend the rules and not nominate
Sen Lola Bovell, a member with the most
experience and the most qualifications, for
the budget committee. Let's give the two open
committee seats to people with no budget
experience who are involved on a personal
-level with the Senate president pro tempore.
. Once again, in the world of Student
Government politics, people with merit are
being punished. Punished for actually taking
students' best interests into account.
Isn't the Replacement and Agenda
Committee supposed to make recommenda-
tions in the best interest of the student body?
SG isn't working toward representing the stu-
dent body. They are working toward satisfy-
ing a select few.
SG dosed the door on an individual who
would bring a different perspective to the
committee and who is a voice for student
organizations. A different perspective would
mean opposition and debate. Isn't that what
we want with an $11 million budget at stake?
But it seems obvious that is not what our

Gators start strong
* GEORGIA'S DECISION TO
By FARZAD SAFI
Alligator Staff Writer
won the opening toss, deferred the
ball to UF and dared the Gators' of-
fense to make the first move.
Even UF's own players had
doubts about an offense that had
yet to score a touchdown on an
opening .drive this year.
"When Georgia won the toss
and deferred to us, I saw a lot of
guys on the sidelines think, 'Here
we go again,'" Meyer said. "But we
came out with a lot of intensity on
that first drive."
Just about everything went
right for the offense on the first
two drives of the game. The Gators
scored two touchdowns thanks to
accurate throws by Chris Leak,
solid running by DeShawn Wynn
and precise blocking by an offen-
sive line that had received plenty
of criticism in recent weeks.
"I think our intensity took
Georgia by surprise at the begin-
ning of the game," senior center
-Mike Degory said. "I guess they
didn't know, but we had to win
For the two weeks leading up to
the Cocktail Party, all the talk out of
Gainesville was about how Meyer
had revised his spread offense to
cater to Leak's talents as a drop-
The most noticeable change on
the opening drive was that Leak
did not get hurried even once,
thanks to plays designed to get the
ball out of his hands quickly.
"That's what was put in the of-
fense over the bye week," Meyer
said. "Quick, short passes were put
in and I thought Chris Leak played
tremendously in that first half."
UF's offense looked like the
well-oiled machine Gators fans
have been hoping for since the day
Meyer arrived. The attack was suc-
cessful on the ground and through
the air, thanks to excellent blocking
by the offensive line.
The line cleared huge lanes, al-
lowing Wynn to run for. 33 yards
orl the opening drive. Leak, mean-
while, completed three third down
conversions to keep the drive
On the first touchdown, Leak
rolled out to his right with the op-
tion of running or hitting fullback
Billy Latsko in the end zone. Leak
tucked the ball and jumped past
two Bulldogs defenders to give the
Gators a 7-0 lead.
The momentum carried over
to the Gators' second possession
as well. Senior Vernell Brown re-
turned the ball to the Georgia 41
yard line after a 29-yard return
The offense marched the ball
down to the goal line once more
against a stunned Georgia team.
The Gators were in the same goal
line formation, but this time Leak
found a streaking Tate Casey in the
end zone when he rolled out. The
touchdown reception was the tight
end's first of the season.
"To see Chris. leap over and
score that first touchdown, that
gave us a lot of energy," Casey said.
"I think we just fed off that energy
from Chris on the second drive
where we scored again."
For an offense that had barely
managed 200 total yards against
Louisiana State, the Gators accu-
mulated 212 yards against Georgia
in the first half.
Up 14-3 at halftime, the defense
knew that would be enough to se-
cure the win.
"As well as our defense has
been playing, we knew the whole
game that 14 points was enough
for us to win," defensive tackle
Marcus Thomas said.

By BRYAN APP
Alligator Staff Writer
JACKSONVILLE Jeremy Mincey
always dreamed of starring at the World's
Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party just
wearing different colors.
Aided by the guidance of one
Bulldogs-loving aunt, the Statesboro, Ga.,
native grew up dreaming of the day when
he would don the red and black.
"All Iheard was, 'Bulldog this...Bulldog
that,' drummed into my head," Mincey
recalled of his childhood.
It seemed like only a matter of time
before he would be making plays between
the hedges. Only that Athens-postmarked
letter never came.
"Georgia never gave me a chance,"
Mincey said. "They never gave me a
scholarship. My coach in high school tried
to get me into Georgia, and they were like,
'He's not good enough.'
"It made me feel bad because that's
everybody's dream, to play for the home

In his final opportunity to stick it to

stand to hand the Bulldogs their first loss

As the Gators clung to a 14-10 lead in
the fourth quarter, the Bulldogs launched.
a drive from their own 8-yard line, march-
ing to the UF 33 after a 19-yard run by
sophomore running back Danny Ware.
"The more they ran the ball, it seemed
like the more confident they were get-
ting," Mincey said. "Somebody had to
slow it down."
It was time for Mincey to expose to the
Bulldogs their recruiting faux pas.
Noticing the position of the offensive
linemen, the defensive end realized
Georgia tailback Thomas Brown would
be rumbling his direction. At the snap,
Mincey plowed the Georgia right tackle
back through the awaiting fullback and
right into Brown, halting him in the back-
field. With a few swipes, Mincey tossed
aside the Bulldogs' blockers and wrapped
up Brown for a drive-killing 8-yard loss.
"Football is such a game of momen-
tum. You felt the tables start to tilt a little
bit, and then Mincey makes a great play
and knocks him for an -yard loss," UF
coach Urban Meyer said. "He's done that
for us all year."
Mincey was at it again during the
Bulldogs' final desperation drive, break-
ing up a pass at the line of scrimmage and
hurrying quarterback Joe Tereshinski to
force an incompletion on Georgia's last
"I'm not the type of guy that believes in
the next man stepping up. I personally feel
like I have to make the play," Mincey said.
"I believe in my other guys, but somebody
has to make the play. You can't look to
somebody else to make the play. The play
isn't going to get made."
Now, the Georgia native can't wat to
return home this Thanksgiving to gloat
about his Gators' 14th win in their last 16
meetings with the Bulldogs.
And for his aunt, he'll have a special

lost several key battles because

MONDAY MORNING QB
Meyer alters philosophy
By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
Throw those first five conference games in the
Urban Meyer finally understands what it takes
to win in the Southeastern Conference, and he
may have discovered the winning formula before
it's too late.
lAfter the Gators defeated No. 4 Georgia 14-10
on Saturday, UF needs just another Georgia loss to
reclaim first place in the SEC East.
The Bulldogs have a bye this weekend before
facing Auburn, the most likely opponent to defeat
Regardless of the scenarios, on Sunday a
humbled but reenergized Meyer admitted that
the Gators defeated Georgia by calling more tra-
ditional plays as opposed to Meyer's preferred
"It's new to me," said Meyer, who became
famous with his high scoring offenses at Bowling
Green and Utah. "Scoring two or three touch-
downs a game, I'm not comfortable with that. But
I am comfortable with winning and if that means
being more conservative [than that's what we'll
"If you're playing speed teams like LSU and
Georgia, running laterally doesn't make much
sense. We did a good job of running the ball down
hill against Georgia."
Meyer said he watched the tape of last week-
end's Georgia-Arkansas game, a game that the
Razorbacks nearly won. He noticed that Arkansas
succeeded by running the ball down field against
the Bulldogs, and the Gators took a page right out
of the Razorbacks playbook on Saturday.
Much of UF's success came on the ground, and
Meyer seems to have found a talented tailback tan-
dem in DeShawn Wynn and Markus Manson.
And after quarterback Chris Leak struggled
to run Meyer', option-heavy offense for much
of the season,' Meyer scaled down the offense on
Saturday and allowed Leak to do what he does
best pass the ball.
While Leak attempted only 20 passes, complet-
ing 15 for 108 yards, he found previously forgot-.
ten targets like tight end Tate Casey, a player that
Meyer had rarely called on before the Georgia
"We tried to evaluate things that our quarter-
back was comfortable with and how he could at-
tack Georgia's defense," Meyer said.
"This is the players' offense and we'll try to
utilize what our players do well."
This doesn't mean Meyer has abandoned the
offense that helped him win national coach of the
year honors at Utah.
Meyer alluded to using his preferred offense
against some of the lesser SEC defenses, and going
the more conservative route against the top-notch
Meyer said this year has been a learning experi-
ence for him and his staff, but he's realized that the
SEC has gone back to its roots a conference that
showcases tough, defensive-heavy games.
"[SEC] teams are winning games 6-3," Meyer
said. "Alabama's undefeated and in the last two
games they've scored one touchdown.
"Is that what we want to become? No. Do we
want to win games? Yes."

DeShawn Wynn, RB, Jr.
While Mincey's statistics may be decent, they do not come close to
measuring his MVP performance against Georgia.
Burning the very team that never recruited him, Mincey chose the
end of the fourth quarter to put his stamp on the game. He halted
a crucial Bulldogs' drive by dragging Thomas Brown down for an 8-
yard loss. Then, on Georgia's decisive drive, he batted down a Joe
Tereshinski pass and hurried Georgia's replacement quarterback on
The junior has finally grown up and it has happened just in time for
Two weeks after dropping 93 rushing yards on a formidable LSU
defense, Wynn found the 100-yard mark for the first time in his career
against an elite SEC team.
Meshing the occasional speed burst with steady hard-nose running,
Wynn carried UF's offense Saturday and validated his anointment as
the Gators' primary tailback.
So that's what happens when you use your tight end.
After burying him somewhere in a nearby swamp for weeks, Urban
Meyer and Co. finally realized they had a talented pair of hands on
their side all along.
Casey scored one of UF's touchdowns and would still be running if
Leak hadn't overthrown him on the second play of the game.
Casey thrives as a key cog in UF's offense and it's likely the Gators
have realized that for good.
