Vendors, media pad record stadium crowds
* ATTENDANCE OF MORE THAN 90K

By JUSTIN RICHARDS
The University Athletic Association
continues to report record attendance at
Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, but those break-
ing the records are not fans but media and

Gators spectators have filled the stadi-
um's 88,548 seats at every game since it
was expanded for the 2003 season.
"Every home football game has sold
out since 1989," said Zack Higbee, assis-
tant director of sports information.

Corners may get tax waiver
A $34 million tax reimburse-
ment for the University Comers
project was approved by a city
According to a report by, PMG
Associates, an independent consul-
tant to Gainesville, the University
Comers developers are eligible to
receive up to 90 percent of the new
taxes the city and county would
generate due to the project.
"The city of Gainesville is not
paying us a dime," Comers chief
executive officer Frank Darabi
said. "When we sell our project,
people will pay taxes on our
new improvements, and the city
and county will not only receive
the taxes they are getting now
- they'll also get 10 percent of the
taxes for the improvements."
If the City Commission ap-
proves the consultant's sugges-
tions later this month, the devel-
opers will receive the $34 million
reimbursement over 26 years.
The project, located at the
comer of University Avenue and
Northwest 13th Street, is estimated
to cost $180 million.
One member, a local devel-
oper who refused to give his name,
warned the committee of pos-
sible risks the city would face if the
Comers project failed.
"If the cost of supporting every-
thing around the project exceeds
our 10 percent, it is a drain," he

Jacksonville party creates
Despite all the fuss about the danger of alcoholism in
Gainesville, our college town doesn't seem to be the
foremost location of UF binge drinking.
During the past two years, two UF students have died par-
taking in festivities after the Florida-Georgia football game in
Twice that number have died in Gainesville over the past
two years as a direct or indirect result of alcohol.
The Jacksonville party lasts a weekend. Gainesville is open
year-round for clubbing and keg parties.
Statistics alone tell us that something is awry, and it doesn't
take much contemplation to figure it out.
Known as the "world's largest cocktail party," the
Jacksonville football game is placed on an alcohol pedestal
that approaches Mardi Gras status for some UF students.
Everyone piles into their cars the Friday afternoon before the
game, stocked with bottles of 7'!or or cases of beer for the
The scene feels like the pinnacle of the college experience.
And because of all the hype, students expect to get plas-
tered and forget their responsibilities. It's a reason to get
rowdy, to have classic college adventures, to show unfettered
The circumstances surrounding the deaths of UF students
hint at this philosophy.
Last Fall, David Ferguson was found dead next to a
Jacksonville parking garage. The last time someone saw him,
he was at the Jacksonville Landing, an entertainment district
where thousands of people flock over the weekend. Friends
said he-was inebriated, and at one point, some were taking
care of him.
But as far as we know, he died alone in a fall from the park-
This year, Thomas Brown also visited the Landing. He
separated from some of his fraternity members after watching
the game at a restaurant. Later, he was beaten to death, grossly
outnumbered by his five young attackers.
Both of these incidents may have been prevented if these
students were in a familiar territory and had a home to go to.
Ferguson's car door was left open, with his wallet and cell
phone inside, hinting that he might have been trying to find a
place to rest. Brown was cornered in an alley, without know-
ing the area or how to get help. ,
But does this mean university officials should step in and
end the party?
We don't think so.
Although it makes more sense to us to have the celebration
in one of the football teams' cities, we're not going to call for
the tradition to stop.
Students are adults and must make their own decisions, for
good or ill. If they want to go to Jacksonville, they will go to
Jacksonville. And if so many people continue to attend, then
they obviously feel they can handle what comes their way.
But we hope some students might learn from the tragedies
of their peers.
At such a crowded and emotional event, students should
always stay in groups. Fights are to be avoided at all costs.
And although most of us shudder at the, idea, a designated
sober friend would make everyone feel much safer.
But we can't pin reasons to why such tragedies happen,
and we can't rely on regulations and laws to save us.

Copyright shouldn't silence creativity
was unhappy to see Wednesday's article claiming
note-taking services may violate professors' copy-
Unfortunately, this is meritless sword-rattling from a
disgruntled professor and nothing more.
A brief background: Copyright is a system of gov-
ernment protection granted for, original creative works.
For example, copyright applies to books, music and
videos. Copyright grants exclusive control over certain
uses of the work, such as modification and redistribu-
tion, for a limited time. The system was designed in the
Constitution as a way to incite creation and "promote
the progress of science and useful arts."
Professor Laurence Alexander's claims of copyright
are invalid because copyright only applies to works
fixed "in a tangible medium of expression." An instruc-
tor's spoken explanations are ephemeral and in no way
fixed in a tangible medium.
Alexander also complains that notes copy "facts,
theories and concepts that the professor has learned and
studied." However, as the U.S. Copyright Office's Web
site explains, mere "ideas,.... concepts, principles" and
the like are explicitly ineligible for copyright.
If note-taking companies copied a professor's every
word or engaged in wholesale copying of a textbook, a
claim could be made for copyright violation. But that's
not what these companies do.
What note-taking companies such as Einstein's Notes
and Smokin' Notes do is summarize. Summary is not,
and never has been, a violation 'of copyright. Despite
what Alexander may claim, note-takers are indeed con-
tributing value when they summarize lecture material
and organize concepts into learning aids.
Copyright law has always recognized summary as a
valid derivative work protected as a fair use under law,
as it should.
What's next in the copyright crusade Cliff's Notes?
Gavin Baker Movie reviews? Book reports?
Speaking Out The very same law tha t alo I s-
scholarly quotation, commentar\
and criticism protects note-takers,
even if they make money without paying the pro.ts;.c.rrs
extra. When was the last time you paid an au t hor i.be
paper you cited?
The free flow of information is essential in a demo-:
cratic society. The ability to summarize, quote or -ep,)rI
the words of another person, without asking an\ .:.nec's
permission or paying any royalty, is key to ensuring a
free exchange of thoughts. I"
Furthermore, even if the law allowed professors to
prosecute note-takers, they should not. Legal rights doi
not always equate with, moral rights. Everyone should
abhor the use of copyright as a bludgeon to silence
speech and creativity.
Unfortunately, copyright and other so-called "intel-
lectual property" laws are used precisely in this manner
time and again. The shift from viewing copyrights as the
limited monopolies they are to seeing them as a form of
property is dangerous, unprecedented and extreme.
If the world is to 'remain free to create and com-i
municate, copyright law must retain its balances and
protections. Copyright serves an important purpose ini
providing incentives for creators. However, we must'
remember its ultimate purpose and ensure that its ex-;
clusive rights do not come before the public good.
Academics, of all people, should support a view of'
copyright that encourages the dissemination of informa-

Copyright doesn't cover notes
While it is understandable that
some professors are disgruntled
about note-taking services (ac-
cording to Tuesday's "Notes for
profit may violate law"), saying
that these note-takers violate "[a
professor's] intellectual property" is
simply absurd. Professor Laurence
Alexander's claims were made
without a true understanding of
The copyrighting of "[intangible]
ideas, concepts ... or principles"
without written explanation is pro-

If these note-taking services took
information from a copyrighted
journal or textbook Alexander wrote
and resold it for personal gain, these
claims would have merit. However,
the services don't.
'Students pay for classes to
receive credit at a respected educa-
tional institution, but they attend

to keep students from profiting off

All knowledge builds on itself.
The idea of using knowledge for

IN THE BOONIES
By KEVIN MAHADEO
In April 1999, America took a trip
down to the Boondocks.
Syndicated in over 300 publications
nationwide, "The Boondocks" comic
strip serves as one of the most contro-
versial yet influential pieces of social
commentary, addressing issues ranging
from racial stereotypes to interracial
marriages to juvenile delinquency.
The strip is taking the next step in
animation evolution into television.
"I've been trying to sell (the show)
to one person or another for the past
five years," said series creator Aaron
McGruder during a conference-call in-
terview Oct. 25.
The strip and subsequent series
follows the exploits of the highly intel-
ligent 10-year-old Huey, his thuggish
brother Riley and their eccentric guard-
ian, Robert "Granddad" Freeman.
Wanting a more relaxing life during
his last days, Granddad moves the kids
from the rough 'n' tough South Side
of Chicago to the lily-white suburban
neighborhood of Westlake.
The kids don't approve of the move,
and hilarity ensues in the form of socio-
The series was pitched to several
networks, including Fox, Showtime
and HBO Family, with Fox coming the
closest to picking it up.
Fox ended up passing on the show;
however, McGruder said the intended

It wasn't until McGruder was offered
an opportunity by Cartoon Network's
Adult Swim that "The Boondocks"
would find itself a place where it would
fit in like a missing puzzle piece.
"Adult Swim understood the show
the best," McGruder said.
Aaron McGruder's comic strip, "The Boondocks," known for its controversial
commentary, comes to Adult Swim on Cartoon Network on Sunday.
McGruder said he had much more
creative freedom on cable, where he
could expand the world of the strip
and have a lot more fun compared to

said. "I.E., the person who pays the

McGruder said he wants to focus
on storytelling with the new series. He
said it was difficult to tell an effective
story in a three-frame strip.
To assist in this area, McGruder in-
corporates an animation style similar
to that of Japanese anime, of which
he is a fan. A live-action program was
completely out of the question because
"it would have sucked," he said, chuck-
McGruder said he felt the Japanese
style would properly convey the neces-
sary mood and emotions for the series.
The series is set to premiere Sunday
at 11 p.m., and McGruder's prospects
on the show seem optimistic:
"Obviously they're good or else I
wouldn't have wasted a damn year and
,a half of my life," he said, laughing.

Horror King turns to comics
By KAROLENA BIELECKI
Things are about to get a lot
more graphic for fans of Stephen
King's epic series "The Dark
One of the most popular fic-
tion writers of our time will write
a comic book for Marvel Comics
beginning in April.
Arguably the biggest news
to hit the comic industry this
year, the miniseries is to be set in
King's mystical Western realm. It
revolves around the hero, Roland
of Gilead, placed in a flashback
during book four of the novel
series, "Wizard and Glass."
Marvel also announced that
the miniseries will be illustrated
by fan favorite and Eisner award-
winning artist Jae Lee.
Why are people making such a
fuss about this?
Well, unless you've been living
under a rock, you know Stephen
King. He has written more than
40 novels, and his seven-book
"Dark Tower" chronicle alone
has a fan base of millions.
Initially, the series will come
out monthly until the story arc
is finished, when it will undoubt-
edly be composed into a graphic
novel. This means some die-hard
King fans may step into a comic
shop for the first time in their
Just think: For every 10 people
who check out King's comic,
maybe one or two will go, "Well,
what's Batman up to?" or, "I've
always. liked Captain America,
but I haven't read the comics
since I was a kid."
Think of King's comic, named,
creatively enough, "Stephen
King's The Dark Tower," as a
gateway comic leading main-
stream readers into the genre's
And of course, Marvel Comics'
editor in chief hopes the relation-
'ship with King grows fruitfully. If
so, fans may see King take on a
classic Marvel character.
But this isn't the first time a
writer of "real books" has, made
the jump to comics.
Orson Scott Card, author of
the "Ender's Game" series, is
writing "Ultimate Iron Man" and
doing a fantastic job.
Even film and television writ-
ers and directors, like Kevin
Smith and Joss Whedon,. have
tried their hand at comics and
done remarkably well by comic-
readers in the past.
Whedon, the creator of televi-
sion shows "Buffy the Vampire
'Slayer," "Angel" and "Firefly,"
has swept readers off their feet
with his work on "Astonishing
But the bottom line is that

Novel within a
I have to admit that John Crowley's latest novel, "Lord Byron's
Novel: The Evening Land," is despite my concerns both before
and after reading it a highly entertaining work of fiction. It's
well-imagined and thoughtfully constructed.
The story operates on three alternating structural levels.
The initial level is that of Byron's novel "The Evening Land,"
an imaginary book supposedly written by the late, great Romantic
poet in the early 19th century. The novel is similar in tone and
general theme to Byron's long, great poems, "Childe Harold's
Pilgrimage" and "Don Juan," though it lacks the former's self-
awareness and the latter's depth of scope and irony.
The second level is the story of Ada Lovelace, famous not only
as Byron's estranged daughter but as the author of the world's first
computer program. Lovelace has found, encoded and annotated
her father's lost novel, hoping to preserve it and to understand her
lost father by carefully annotating it in terms of Byron's own life.
The third narrative level is that of Smith and Lee, an estranged
daughter and father who bear a striking resemblance to Lovelace
James They collaborate by
Fleming e-mail on deciphering, au-
Off the Press thenticating and. interpret-
firstname.lastname@example.org ing Byron's newly discov-
ered novel and Lovelace's
As melodramatic and hokey as it might sound, the novel actu-
ally works, at least as a piece of entertainment. The relationship
between Smith and Lee is unique, well-developed and one of the
more interesting child-parent relationships I've seen explored in
Lovelace's annotations are sad and desperate. Through her
notes, we watch her struggle with attempting to approach and
understand her father logically and methodically, something that
ultimately proves impossible to do.
However, the book's greatest weakness is certainly the novel
"The Evening Land" itself.
Having read and reread everything Byron wrote, I wasn't able
to suspend my disbelief while reading Byron's "novel." It just
doesn't sound like him.
That's not to say that Crowley's attempt at literary imperson-
ation isn't remarkable. Clearly lie knows Byron well and under-
stands how he tended to order and structure his thoughts.
At times Crowley even nails it, if only for 'a line or two, but he
isn't able to keep up any sort of momentum. Byron was never as
obvious as Crowley imagines him or as honest.
Maybe I'm picking at straws here. I question the wisdom of
Crowley's decision to write Byron's imaginary novel and provide
it to us in its entirety.
Crowley's novel would have been much stronger if "The
Evening Land" was left to our imagination, and the novel itself
focused on Lovelace's annotations and the relationship between
Smith and Lee.

Rolling Stone: UF doesn't rock
Does Gainesville still rock?
Apparently, Rolling Stone
magazine does not think so.
In issue 980, Rolling Stone wrote an
article called "Schools that Rock," which
listed what they called the Top 10 schools
for music lovers to attend..
A book was recently-published under
the same title, by the same author that
lists the Top 50 schools that rock. The cri-
teria for choosing the schools was finding
those with interesting music programs,
Jenny Eliscu, the writer of the article and
book, said in a phone interview.
"The book was meant to be as com-
prehensive as possible ... to highlight
the best or most interesting or unique,"
Other criteria involved the city in
which the school was located. Eliscu
named factors such as strong indepen-
dent music stores, music festivals and
cities with thriving music scenes, local
bands, more than one good venue and
big bands regularly playing in town.
A similar Top 10 list was published
by Rolling Stone in 2003 that listed
Gainesville as No. 9. On the new list UF
and Gainesville are curiously absent.
Eliscu said she could not recall the 2003
article and that she did not write it, so she
could not comment on it. '
She said there was no editorial deci-
sion made that said Gainesville rocked
two years ago and now does not. Some
,places were left off the list because of
limited resources, she said. Eliscu did not
personally visit each city. She had writers
cover different cities and report back.
John Duff, direc-
tor of UF's School of
Music, said he is not
concerned that UF did
not make the list.
"The factors that
seem to be of interest
to Rolling Stone have little to do with
the music programs, but rather what op-
portunities and experiences exist around
the general campus and the surrounding
community," Duff said.
Duff listed a staggering number of
accomplishments and honors that both
music students and professors have
achieved as examples of how strong the
School of Music is.
Jason Rockhill, co-owner of Common
Grounds and a Gainesville resident
since 1993, said a list like Rolling Stone's
should not be taken too seriously.
"You can't really give much credibility
to Rolling Stone's arbitrary list of college
towns that have music scenes," he said.
Gainesville missed a few things the
past few years, like a big venue in town
to bring in touring bands and breakout
bands, Rockhill said.
"Before we (Common Grounds)

50 Cent confident despite controversy of new flick
By MARIA LAVERGHETTA
First, Eminem did it with "8 Mile." Now,
Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson will follow suit
with "Get Rich or Die Tryin'."
Backed with a script by "The Sopranos"
writer Terence Winter and directed by Jim
Sheridan, 50 Cent will star in the critically
acclaimed film in theaters Nov. 9.
Like Prince's 1984 movie, "Get Rich or
Die Tryin'" is loosely based on 50 Cent's
life. He plays Marcus, an inner-city drug
dealer who gets out of the business to pur-
sue his true passion of rap music. While the
movie highlights his past, 50 Cent said in
an Oct. 26 conference call that the film is not
completely factual. .
"Some reporting (in the film) is accu-
rate," 50 Cent said. "Some is just fabricated
for the interests of the public."
He said one point where the movie
breaks from his life is when his character
Marcus is shot in a car. This doesn't cor-
relate to his actual life experience; 50 Cent
was shot nine times in Queens in 2000.
Even though 50 Cent is optimistic on
how the movie will be remembered, contro-
versy surrounds the film's release because
of the depiction of guns in the movie's
promotional billboards. The controversy
doesn't worry 50 Cent, though. He said the
negative publicity intrigues people and that
guns are often used in marketing for films.
"Because I'm coming from music, they
feel like it is promoting violence. You have
to accept it," 50 Cent said. "You have to
learn to take it for what it is."
He said that he saw the film role as a
chance for him to step out of his normal
public role and show his fans his true col-
"I become human through the film,"
50 Cent said. "There are a lot of different
things I did in the film that I wouldn't do
His debut album, "Get Rich or Die
Tryin'," was released in 2003 and sold
900,000 copies in the first week, according
to the Internet Movie Database Inc. Web
site. Because of his CD's popularity, 50 Cent
said he wanted to use the same title for his
"It's aggressive," he said. "Because the
masses associate "Get Rich or Die Tryin"'
with 50 Cent, I titled my film after it. I
probably generate the interest of 44 million
Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson plays himself in Jim Sheridan's "Get Rich or Die Tryin'."' Sheridan
also directed the biographical film "In America."

'Jarhead' depicts emotional side of first Gulf War
Most war movies become
classics due to infamous
battle scenes and action.
While the latest military movie is
definitely in the action genre, it is
not because of over-the-top action.
"Jarhead," the directorial proj-
ect from Sam Mendes ("American
Beauty"), shows an alternate side
of war the waiting game. Jake
Gyllenhaal stars as U.S. Marine
Anthony Swofford, a 20-year-old
enlistee in the
during the first
lows "Swoff" from boot camp
through rigorous sniper training
and into his time in the Middle
Swoff and his fantastic sup-
porting cast of fellow Marines, in-
cluding Peter Sarsgaard ("Garden
State"), find themselves trudging
through the blazing desert, fight-
ing for a cause they don't fully
comprehend against an enemy
that is never really present.
Jamie Foxx ("Ray") redeems
himself from his lousy perfor-
mance in "Stealth" as Sgt. Siek,
a lifelong Marine- who heads up
Based on the 2003 best-sell-
ing book written by Swofford
himself, Mendes depicts a com-
pletely different side of war;
focusing more on the emotions
and feelings of the soldiers in it,
rather than the factual accounts
and military details.
Nothing is sugar-coated, and
Melissa presented in a
Filipkowski very in-your-
The Reel Life face manner.

situations, which I thought were
merely Semper Fi rumors, are
brought to the screen in moments
that are either completely hilari-,
ous or utterly tragic.
The entire movie is built on
mounting tension and the threat
of the enemy in the distance, as
the soldiers become more and
more confused about the reasons
they have gone to fight.
At the same time, the soldiers
desperately cling to whatever
lives they have left at home, and
we sadly watch as some of their
home lives unravel as their stay
in the desert drags on.
Political overtones are heavy
in the movie. Mendes does a
fabulous job of relating the film
to what is going on in the Middle
Whether you are -a Democrat
or a Republican, it makes you
think twice about the soldiers
fighting in Iraq.
Mendes showcases' each
Marine as an individual and pays
tribute to the hard work and ded-
ication it takes to be a soldier.
-Male camaraderie and bonding
is also cleverly depicted.
The acting is superbly execut-
ed, and I wouldn't be surprised
to see Peter Sarsgaard nominated
for some type of award for his
supporting role in the film.
If you go into the movie with
an open mind and don't expect
an epic "Gladiator" bloodbath,
you may find yourself wrapped
in the Semper Fi experience. You
may even shout "hoora" with the
rest of them.
It takes two to tango; good sex requires more than a partner
Like picking the fastest line in the
grocery store or the right day to skip
class, sex is always a gamble.
No matter how much observation,
investigation and analysis, you can't tell
someone's sexual prowess until you sleep
with him or her.
In fact, in many cases, you can't even re-
ally know until you've slept with the person
a few times.
But as human nature teaches us to find
what we want to see, people will find a way
to validate sleeping with the guy they're
Well, he gives a really good massage,
they'll say, or he's got great rhythm when
And then the same five words follow:
You know what that means.
But, really, "that" means nothing.
Of course, it doesn't seem that way.
After lousy sex, all the clues that should
have told you he was going to be bad scream
just as loudly as the ones that told you he'd
be a god.
And in the vein of the
adage about hindsight, we
try to learn from our mis-
takes and move on.
Somehow though, we
never really learn any-
It's because we rarely consider the one
constant in all of our bad sexual experiences:
Always placing the blame leaves out
a significant portion of the cast. It's also
hypocritical, because when the sex is good,
everyone likes to take some credit.
You hear "we had great sex" when it's
good, but "he/she was bad in bed" when
The only way to in-
crease your odds in sexual
roulette is to look to your-
For me, mediocre sex
stems from going after
what I knew I didn't re-
I remember being with one guy who
was smart, sensitive and emotionally sup-
Beyond that, he was great at making me
feel comfortable and at ease, which seemed
like good signs.
He was even an inventive kisser, which I,
always like in a guy.
So then I- started expounding his good
signs into character traits, and that's when
things began to fall apart.
I reasoned that if he understood my
thoughts and emotions, he'd understand
my body as well.When we slept together, I
learned that sensitivity doesn't translate to
Even worse was his inability to take sug-
gestions; instead he felt insulted.
With him, what I mistook as sensitivity
was really insecurity.
So even though the signs were there, the
destination turned out to be a letdown.

Metal returns; Daylight dim
'Conflict' blurs reality
Children of Bodom
Are You Dead Yet?
r. ." Let's be honest. Metal of late
has sucked. The word has been
twisted and bastardized to mean anything you
want it to mean. Poison is metal. Kiss -is metal.
Metallica is metal. Disturbed is metal.
Now, hit yourself on the head hard enough
to forget every musical nugget in your brain. In
this amnesiac state, put in Children of Bodom's
"Are You Dead Yet?"
This is metal. It gently pushes you to once
again listen to and like that musical genre
you gave up on. The band's fifth album digs out
elements hidden in every comer of metal's dark
basement. The drumming is fast, intricate and
still somehow bare bones. The guitar sound is
classic, stealing sonic squeals from Randy
Rhoads and still able to chunk through heavy
riffs. The addition of keyboard to the songs
gives the band its own angle and voice.
One of the few discrepancies of the CD is
the vocals. Frontman Alexi Laiho's vocals don't
stand out too much on any song and are almost
never melodic. He screams his way through
every track, which is fine, but it dumbs down.
songs with infinite potential. Even so, if by the
third and best track from the Finnish band
"If You Want Peace... Prepare for War," you're
not pumping your fist in the air and banging
your head, you probably never liked metal.
Take a Photograph E.P.
The Minneapolis-based band Dropping
Daylight is in an odd situation: The piano- is
the coolest instrument in the band. Lead singer
and Berklee-trained pianist Sebastian Davin
makes his band stick out by dropping insanely
varied and virtuous key-tickling licks to every
song on Dropping Daylight's new E.P. "Take a
Photograph." The problem is nothing rocks but
the piano. Without it, the band is hackneyed.
Like every other emo band, Dropping
Daylight is too melodramatic. Some of the
lyrical content is so sophomoric, you roll your
eyes. Even the best song on the album, "Lucy,"
contains the exhibitionist lines, "Chatting with
each other's exes and friends we made love
with/Circling the crowd/Speaking very loud/
So we can find each other, steal a kiss and cop a
feel in front of everyone."
The song holds hints of where the band
should go. The verses sound like Rufus
Wainwright if he was singing about a girl, and
the piano is at most playful. Davin's voice is
enjoyable, until he puts aggression in it.
Ultimately, though there are hints of prom-
ise sporadically sprinkled through the songs,
Dropping Daylight's traditional rock section
just doesn't rock enough.

While positioning and ordering
soldiers is effective, the game's AI

Georgia, with seven games of frus-

at Alltel Stadium. It was a routine
he had established last season but
hadn't done this season because UF
has dedicated less time to pregame
activities, The sophomore tight end

touchdown in the Bulldogs win.

Yes, Casey plans on autograph-
ing goalposts for the remainder of
the season, but superstitions aside,
it finally looks like he has found his
place in the offense.
Casey's three catches Saturday
equaled his number of receptions
from the previous seven games
Is it a coincidence that Coach
Urban Meyer has scaled down the
offense to incorporate more tight
end and full back sets?
"I knew that this offense had
to get better, that there was a way
it could, and they put it in," Casey
said. "I didn't for one second think
I wasn't going to score, or that I
wasn't going to get any more recep-
tions this year."
Meyer admits Casey is a big part
of the changes but says there's more
to the sophomore's slow start than
just the offense. Meyer criticized
Casey's work ethic during practices
until last week when he said the
tight end started improving.
"It's not like all of a sudden we
were like, 'Hey, let's get the ball to
the tight end,'" Meyer said. "He's
just been getting better. Six weeks
ago there was no intention to get it
to him because in practice he wasn't
making plays. But he's doing much

something besides .blocking to be
psyched about. With Dallas Baker
nursing an ankle injury and Andre
Caldwell out for the season, Casey
can provide a pressure release for
the still-evolving offense.
"Being able to have a tight end
as a great weapon, that always
helps you," quarterback Chris Leak
said. "He's done a good job getting
his routes down, and he's a-eal
threat to the defense."
For Casey, catching balls again
means so much more. It validates
his roster spot. It gives him a reason
to look forward to practice.
"It just feels good to get back
in the swing of things and maybe
get a little swagger," he said. "I'm

Revamped Santa Fe team debuts tonight
* UF WOMEN'S FRESHMAN FORCED
TO LEAVE GAINESVILLE WITH INJURY.
Last year the Santa Fe Community College
men's basketball team used its athleticism,
depth and talent to dominate teams en route to
a 25-4 record. At one point the Saints were 20-0
and ranked in the top 5 nationally.
BYut as the Saints head back to the court to-
night against Oxford College in the SFCC Tip Off
Classic, they'll be without seven of the team's top
10 players from a year ago due to graduation.
"We have a completely different team,"
Coach Chris Mowry said. "We have a lot of true
freshmen that were very good in high school at
successful programs. Now, they are going to be
playing against everyone else who was. good in
The Saints- brought in a talented recruiting
class that includes several of last year's all-state
high school players from Florida and Georgia's
Class A Player of the Year, Tracy Rankins.
While the freshmen certainly need to con-
tribute for the Saints to be successful, much of
the weight falls on the shoulders of the three re-
turning sophomores: guards Devin Harden and
Torrance Walker and forward Dionte Perry. All
three played significant roles last year, but with
the departure of so many players, their roles
have expanded. Not only are they expected to
perform well on the court, but they also have to
serve as mentors to the freshmen.
"They try to lead by example and tell other
guys what to expect," Mowry said. "I've been
happy with their effort and leadership."
After facing Oxford College tonight, the
Saints will host Middle
Georgia on Friday.
"We have some talented
kids, we just need to get them
to take care of the ball and de-
fend," Mowry said. "If we do
those things, I think we have

DEPARTURE: Freshman guard LaToya Bullard
has returned home due to injury and is not
expected back until the spring semester, UF
coach Carolyn Peck said Wednesday.
Bullard, a Memphis, Tenn., native, injured
her hamstring in December, and the nagging
injury caused her problems walking straight
before fall practice began.
At home, Bullard will be able to concentrate
on medical treatment and not have to worry
about getting around campus, Peck said.
"You've got to park your scooter one place
and walk somewhere else," Peck said. "It's
Bullard's teammates noticed her suffering.
"We knew that she was in a lot of pain,"
senior Sarah Lowe said. "She really wanted to
stay here, but the demands of having to walk
to and from class and all that stuff was just re-
ally hurting her back."
Bullard's playing status for next semester
will be determined by how much progress she
"I don't know if this is something that
could heal and be ready by January, or if it's
something that could be healed. But then
there's a rehab that needs to occur," Peck said.

Gators to defend SEC title
By SPENCER DAVIS-VANNNESS
There's no other way to put it. In its 11-year his-
tory, the UF soccer team has failed to advance to the
SEC Tournament title match just once.
That makes nine trips to the final game with seven
trophies to show for it, including a streak of six con-
secutive titles from 1996 to 2001.
Today the Gators will try to defend their 2004
championship with a first-round SEC Tournament
match against Auburn.
The Tigers handed UF its only non-final-round loss
Auburn enters the game as an enigma. After a
successful conference start and forcing an overtime
match in its early season match with UF, the Tigers
faltered late, dropping their final three games.
UF coach Becky Burleigh doesn't know quite what
to make of her opponents' recent struggles.
"You can either look at it two ways," she said.
"One is that's not a good trend. The other is you need
to break that trend at some point."
Either way, the Gators won't take the Tigers lightly,
senior forward Lindsey DeLorenze said.
"We know what a big deal this is, and that it could
be our last game, but we're pretty much expecting it
not to be," she said.
For the second year in a row, the Gators enter the
tournament with a somewhat underdog status, as
Tennessee earned the No. 1 seed.
"We weren't expected to do well in the SEC
Tournament last year, and we proved them wrong,"
"We weren't expected to do well in
the SEC Tournament last year, and we
proved them wrong."
Part of a program steeped in history with the
upcoming tournament, UF's seniors often take vocal
roles in developing the attitudes of younger players.
"[The seniors] have told us to keep playing like
every game is our last because you never really know
if it will be or not," freshman midfielder Megan Kerns
But this year's senior class will not dwell in past
"Our record doesn't state that we are good at any-
thing," said Jen Gardner, UF goalkeeper and fifth-year
senior. "Our record states that we need to win some

weekend, since it will be facing

tackle Steven Harris said. "But

a guy who has the heart to play
in the NFL next season.

said. "He's a guy who gets

there. He's an accurate passer,
but there are a lot of accurate

eating contest at the Dragonfly Sushi
& Sake Company in Gainesville.
"My friends were always like,
'You're a big eater. You could do
that,'" he said. "It helped me dis-
cover my talent."
Hunt ate 24 jumbo California

eating is a sport.
"It is a physical activity governed
by a set of rules, and eaters refine
their skills over time," he said in
an e-mail. "I would argue it isas

and jumping, both of which are in
Hunt said that competing in the
sport is tough and requires training.
"I drink large quantities of water

While the entire Gator nation focused on
Georgia quarterback D.J. Shockley's health
last week, one of the best quarterbacks UF
will face all year heads to .the Swamp this
Surprisingly, the Southeastern
Conference's coaches did not select Chris
Leak, Alabama's Brodie Croyle or even
Shockley as the league's preseason top quar-
No, Vanderbilt's Jay Cutler got the nod..
While most fans think of the Commodores
as habitual losers, Coach Urban Meyer
showed great respect for their leader.
"Cutler is definitely a difference maker,"
Meyer said. "I admire him. I've admired him
even before this week because I saw how

Cutler passing average and total
offense with 251.9 yards per game.
"It should be a good challenge for our de-
fense," defensive end Jarvis Moss said. "I'm
looking forward to facing Cutler because he's
a good football player."
While the Gators' defense has been the
team's strength this year, it hasn't had to face

Georgia lost Shockley a week before its
match up with the Gators that thrust Joe
Tereshinski into his first career start.
