Union elevators get overdue licenses
By LYNDSEY LEWIS
The most convenient way to access the
multiple floors of the Reitz Union is by eleva-
tor. But until this week, every elevator in the
Union bore an operating license that expired
in 2002, leaving passengers not knowing if
* their ride was state certified.
"I don't know if [failure to display an
up-to-date elevator license] is breaking any
law that I'm aware of," said Reitz Union
Executive Director Eddie Daniels in an inter-
view Thursday. "But that's still very curious
that we haven't had certificates for three
"There have been a number of
very large changes in the way el-
evators are regulated in Florida."
Business and Professional Regulation director
Although all Union elevators including
those designated for. employees only dis-
played expired license certificates, Daniels
said UF records state that the elevators have
passed inspections for the past three years.
He added that each elevator has been in-
spected annually since the certificates expired
in 2002, but neither the Florida Bureau of
Elevator Safety nor the independent contrac-
tor who conducted the inspections issued the
Union new licenses in three years.
However, an employee of the Division
of Hotels and Restaurants within the
Department of Business and Professional
Regulation said that between 1999 and 2003,
her department had no records of any eleva-
tor inspections in the Union.
"Unless someone calls that in, we won't
know. It might just slip through the cracks,"
The employee, who could not give her
name due. to departmental restrictions, said
that at least two of the Union's elevators
failed their inspections in late 2003.

Cash tops worry of college presidents
College presidents are more preoccupied with financial issues than educational ones,
according to a new survey by The Chronicle of Higher Education. The survey, sent to
the presidents or chancellors of 1,338 four-year colleges during the summer, drew 764
responses, or 57 percent.

Speaker stresses that culture cannot be erased
By DIANA MAZZELLA
Vijay Prashad denounced multiculturalism
as modem racism Thursday night during an
Asian American Heritage Month event.
The professor of International Studies at
Trinity College in Hartford, Conn., explained
to about 100 people how multicultural ideas
failed to serve humanity. Although he was
sponsored by Asian American Kaleidoscope
Month, his message did not apply only to
Asian American students. ,
As his voice echoed in the Reitz Union
Grand Ballroom, he said that colorblindness
- consciously looking beyond a person's race
or ethnicity is disregarding that person's
He said people are not blank slates and
cannot be treated that way. Multiculturalism
divides people into cultures and only shows
the conservative elements of cultures.
He also explained that these two ideas do
not work together.
"How can you celebrate cultures when you
don't have history?" he asked.
He described the "model-minority" myth
and how it affects people of all cultures, saying

UF has suspended a $50-per-semester fee charged to inter-
national students until further notice, officials said Thursday.
UF International Center Dean Dennis Jett said the fee cov-
ered the cost to track,,monitor and report the activities of 2,700
international students. Instead of footing the bill through its
own budget, the university passed the fee on to its international
students after its Fall 2002 inception.
"We thought it would be best to suspend it," he said. "If
you went to a university that only consisted of
Student Florida residents, you would get a very different
Life education than if you went to one that represented
the world that you are eventually going to have to
The fee was created to fund the government-mandated
Student and Exchange Visitor Information System, which was
rushed to implementation after Sept. 11, 2001.
To meet the requirements of SEVIS, UF hired more staff to
monitor the actions of international students and update the
students' home countries of their progress.
Despite discrimination claims, Jett said SEVIS "is not some-
thing that we have an option on."
An October audit stated that UF acted "dearly without statu-
tory authority" when it imposed the fee. But Jett said the Florida
Board of Governors, the body that oversees the state's 11 public
universities, approved the idea during the summer.
Student Sen. Fei Long, who came to UF in 2002 to study
statistics, said paying the extra fee was disappointing.
"It just shows that Americans do not welcome international
students as they did before," he said.
UF Provost'Janie Fouke said she does not know where the
up to $250,000 to fund the program will come from.
"We want the best minds to come and study with us," she
said. "I think the international fee had the potential to be a de-
terrent for students from other countries."
Student Body President Joe Goldberg said he thinks UF is
going to eat the cost.-
"It seems to me that the university has found a way, or they
wouldn't have suspended the fee," he said.
Report: Tuition hike lowest in years
Loans increase as grants languish
By RACHEL LEWINTER
Alligator Contributing Writer
While some students are get-
ting home from a night of party-
ing at 5 a.m., Vicky Goldenberg is
getting up for work.
The UF education junior is a
full-time student who also holds
a full-time job as an assistant man-

two other part-time jobs.
It may seem like a lot of respon-
sibility for a college student, but
for Goldenberg and millions of
others faced with the increasing
costs of college, it's worth it.
"I do everything I possibly can
so I don't have to take out loans,"
Goldenberg said. "Everyone makes
sacrifices, and these are mine."
The College Board, best known
for creating and administering the
SAT, released its annual report on
the cost of college and student
financial aid last month, highlight-
ing once again the trend of increas-
But the report offered some
good news: Percentage increases
slowed to single digits for the
2005-06 academic year.
The average cost of tuition and
fees at four-year public universi-
ties increased 7.1 percent to $5,491
from last year, the lowest rate hike
The tuition increase is sig-
nificantly smaller this year than
in the last two years, during which

not the UF Board of Trustees,
the university's governing body,
said Karen Fooks, the director of
Student Financial Affairs.
The Florida Legislature estab-
lished a 5 percent increase in UF
tuition for undergraduates for the
2004-05 academic year.
"It is highly unlikely that
We will see any significant
growth in grant aid in the
Student Financial Affairs director
Tuition at public institutions is
largely dependent on state legisla-
tive allocations, Fooks said. When
the state budget is healthy and
appropriations to higher educa-
tion are high, tuition is held down.
When the state economy is poor,
tuition goes up.
The College Board report is a re-
flection of an improving economy,
so-the need for large tuition increas-
es is lessening in some states. Fooks
said she thinks it wouldn't be un-
usual if the legislature decided not
to increase rates for a year-or two if
the economy remained good.
From 1996 to 2002, total grant
aid for undergraduates grew twice
as fast as total borrowing, but since
2002, that pattern has reversed.
In 2004-05, the percentage of total
undergraduate aid in the form of
grants declined for the third year
in a row, according to the report.
UF undergraduates borrow about
$13,000;,and the national average is
just above $15,000, Fooks said.
"The trend of increasing loans
rather than grants is part of a
continuing trend, and I don't see
that changing anytime soon," she
Budget dollars are tight, particu-
larly at the federal level, because
of the war in Iraq and the money
needed for hurricane assistance,
"It is highly unlikely that we
will see any significant growth in
grant aid in the foreseeable future,"
The report takes into consider-
ation that college students incur
more expenses than tuition alone.
According to the report, total
tuition, fees, and room and board
charges at public four-year colleges
grew more rapidly between 2000-01
and 2005-06 than during any other
five-year period since 1975.
Students and parents find ways
to supplement the cost of college
through grants, loans, tax credits
and other savings plans.
According to the report, nearly
$129 billion in student aid was dis-
tributed in Florida during the 2004-
05 academic year, almost $10 billion
more than the previous year.
During 2003-04, more than

ELEVATORS, from page 1
Geoff Luebkemann, director for the department, said sev-
eral factors may be to blame for the expired elevator licenses
and the lack of sufficient records.
In 2003, the Florida Legislature enacted a law requiring all
elevators to be inspected annually, as opposed to the previous
requirement of every two years, Luebkemann said.
He added that all elevators must now meet
On higher standards in order to be issued a license.
Campus "The law does not allow us to renew certificates
without current satisfactory inspections," he said,
adding that inspection violations may constitute anything from
safety issues to trash lying at the bottom of elevator pits.
Although the Reitz Union's elevators now display up-to-
date certificates, some Union employees still complain that
they frequently experience problems.
"They're always calling people out here to fix [the el-
evators]," said housekeeping employee Nicole Durden. "The
maintenance ones break down at least once a day." -
Ron Therriault is listed as having inspected the elevators

6, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 4,2005
Two months overdue, Gainesville', brand of autumn has
finally arrived. Or is it a hot version of winter? We can't tell.
And we wouldn't know anyway; the Editorial Board is per-
petually stuck inside its dank, dark office, churning out opinion
pieces on the state of the world.
After our Halloween was spent among UF students dressed
as creative versions of prostitutes, we didn't want to socialize
with too many of our female peers. We could catch a sexually
transmitted disease by osmosis.
Instead, we have turned our concentration toward an even
more depressing indicator of the fall of our society: the news.
We've even organized it all into two easy-to-understand catego-
ries the good and the bad.
So stoke the fire, rake up the leaves and buy a bunch of color-
ful gourds for this week's edition of...
Darts & Laurels
We'll begin with an international spin and hand a better-
late-than-never-even-for-the-hopelessly-stubbom LAUREL to
UF administration for finally suspending a $50 fee charged to
UF officials charged the fee to help pay for the Student and
Exchange Visitor Information System, or SEVIS, a federal pro-
gram that tracks international students to ensure they don't
engage in terrorist activities.
Students have long lobbied against the fee, asserting that
it's racist and hurts foreign-student enrollment. And about two
weeks ago, an audit claimed UF was acting "dearly without
statutory authority" by diverting the cost to the students.
We think this is an issue between universities and the
federal government. If UF has to comply with a law without
receiving compensation for the cost, then that is a problem for
The fee may be small compared to other expenses, but it
becomes a symbolic move that could turn away international
But UF officials aren't the only ones who have made ill-
advised decisions. We fire a throwing-money-at-businesses-
must-have-a-good-reason-behind-it DART at Gainesville
city staff for recommending Tuesday that the city reimburses
University Comers with $34 million of its property taxes.
The development is to be -a three-block-long building
on the comer of University Avenue and 13th Street, with
retail, residential and hotel aspects. City officials argue that
University Comers will not cost the city more than 10 percent
of the taxes the building generates. Thus, they're offering the
business a 90-percent tax cut for the next 26 years, or until $34
million is reached.
It's all part of a program to help out projects that "literally
transform" the property.
But will Comers change it for the better? How will students
benefit? Are we sure the complex will survive when it plans to
charge for parking and have only luxury apartments? Will the
price of food increase because of the rent?
The complex is obviously directed at students, but we don't
know if it will garner their support.
This needs to be addressed before we support such a dras-
tic favor. We're also a little leery of the program itself. Why
should the city help businesses that can't get the interest of
enough private investors to build their projects themselves?
Keeping with our theme of development, we shoot an
while-you-figure-it-out DART at the U.S. Senate for voting
against removing a provision in the budget reconciliation
bill that would allow drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife
Our opposition to drilling aside, we think it's irresponsible
to allow such an important issue to be overshadowed by such
a large bill. We want senators to fight and discuss the measure,
not be distracted by other issues.
Every decision should be thoroughly scrutinized, whether
in Gainesville or in Washington.

File-sharing debate hurts artists most
R record companies, movie studios and media out-
lets complain that file-sharing costs .them profits
n rand directly equates to stealing.
Those who share files respond that restricting the
free trade of electronic media stifles creativity and
closes off the global marketplace to the arts.
But as both sides argue their particular rights, there's
one big loser caught in the middle: the artists them-
While the hot topic in copyright news today is broad-
casters trying to stop Internet-based duplication of their
transmissions, I'm going to have to fall back on the ex-
ample that for me hits closest to home: music.
As a musician, I can understand the desire to receive
full payment for your work. But I also hate the idea
that restrictive copyright laws, if enforced, would make
it nearly impossible for millions of prospective fans
around the world to hear my music.
To say the recording industry is the sole agent at
fault for this situation, however, is folly. Just as much
blame or more lays on those exploiting this un-
precedented access to creative works in order to steal
massive amounts of protected material.
Every person I know who shares music has songs
from at least a handful of bands he or she otherwise
never would have come across, which is a testament to
the Internet's unique ability to spread art to those who
can appreciate it most.
Unfortunately, every person I know who shares mu-
sic also has illegal copies of entire albums for which I
can guarantee he or she would have otherwise paid full
I'll admit I caved to the system: I deleted all of my,
shared music over a year ago. As much as I loved hav-
ing the ability to more or less instantly peruse a new
band's entire'catalog, I couldn't escape the fact that it
was the same as walking out of a store with a handful of
Looking at my collection of

to see the impact file sharing
has had on my musical tastes.
There are at least fifteen bands

of their songs.
My two favorite artists of all
time are included in that list, as well as at least half of
my Top 10.
When I look back at all the enjoyment I've gotten out
of that music, as sappy as it sounds, it makes me sick to
know that my exposure to it was twisted into something
illegal because of extreme actions from bothisides of this
So what's the solution?.
Bands and record companies would like the public to
be satisfied with samples provided on band homepages
and Web sites such as myspace.com.
But this doesn't allow prospective listeners to choose
the songs, and shuts out those who may be introduced
to new favorite bands based on other fans' recommen-

But we all know, deep down, that's a lie.
And therein lies the problem: As long as both sides
are unwilling to compromise, it's unlikely there ever
will be any reasonable way to resolve the situation.
But until we find a way if we ever do it's only
the art that will suffer.

Letters to the Editor
Opinions page full of partisan extremes
How about a little less finger-pointing?
I've noticed a trend lately within the
Opinions section of this paper. This includes
the editorial, columns and letters.
It goes a little something like this:
A Republican writer says, "Liberals are
trying to ruin the country!" Then a Democrat
responds with, "You are taking our rights
away!" Finally, someone says, "Liberals are
lazy!" and then, "Conservatives are creating a
tyranny and trying to control my free spirit!"
For the sake of being politically correct,
either side is likely to start the pointing.
Granted, there are a few insightful opin-
ions. Someone who takes a comprehensive
look at both sides and explains why he be-
lieves one side is better writes a solid piece.
But these seem to be few and far between.
Everybody is making observations about
the other side and why it contains either crazy
Russian communists or die-hard, dose-mind-
Simply because the other view has disad-
vantages, it does not make your view auto-
That is why I am proposing that instead of
saying, "They are the ones messing up; blame
them," writers put a little thought into an
opinion and make the conclusion something
that everyone can see and not immediately
disregard as partisan hooey. Who knows, if
you don't sound dose-minded, you might
make someone actually agree with you who is
"from the other side."
Anthony J. Such
Writer gives credit to opponent's claims
Naturally, it is difficult to persevere when
one is forced to face an opposition that char-
acterizes your values as "extreme," but Erica
Walters' letter in Tuesday's Alligator made it
obvious why her opponents call her extreme.
She simply left too many dots to connect.
Truly, nearly 50 percent of black children live
below the poverty line, but is racial inequality
really the lone reason for this injustice? Surely
there are other causes; why exaggerate and
mention race only?
Furthermore, Walters seems to imply that
activating more legislation regarding wom-
en's rights would elicit rape victims to feel
they could bring their reports to the police.
Will legislation actually cause rape victims to
communicate their feelings better?
Finally, if Walters is attempting to demon-
strate that protecting the environment is not
an extreme cause, why would she say a quip
like "...policymakers are actively destroying
the only planet we have?" Inflated statements
such as that cause levelheaded people to dis-
card her values as extreme and irrelevant.
Michael K. O'Malley
Holocaust has no connection to abortion
The premise of Jennifer Tovey's letter in
Thursday's Alligator was very offensive. To
compare abortion to the Holocaust is not only
disrespectful, but also completely ludicrous.
Abortion is not the systematic genocide
of an entire people; it is an individual choice
that a woman makes depending on her own
situation. The 12 million human beings who
were brutally murdered in the Holocaust were
people with names, homes and families. Most
importantly, they were already born.
While it's arguable whether or not an
aborted fetus was alive, it is by no stretch of
the imagination a living person. An aborted
fetus is not ripped away from all that it has
known, stripped of its civil liberties and sent
to a death camp.
While it is true that Holocaust education
uses images to teach people, these images are
used in either a classroom setting or in a mu-
seum. People have a choice whether or not to
be exposed to the content. The images are used
as supplements to actual lesson plans, not to
shock or upset bystanders.
To drive through a university campus and
have to see graphic and upsetting images is
not education; it is propaganda.

Alumna shares Middle East tales
By DELIA M. RIVERA ZABALA
Alligator Contributing Writer
Stephanie Sinclair has been dodging
bullets for three years.
But she spent Thursday roam-
ing UF's College of Journalism and
Communications and reflecting on her
time as a Gator.
"It's great to be back," Sinclair said.
"It brings back so many memories."
Sinclair, a photojournalist who gradu-
ated from the college in 1998, visited her
alma mater as part of the Hearst Visiting
Professional program, named for 20th-
century publishing magnate William
Sinclair presented a slideshow of pic-
tures and spoke to reporting students in
the Gannett Auditorium, as well as other
journalism classes throughout the day.
She spoke about witnessing many
difficult events in the Middle East since
being sent there in 2002. She arrived in
Iraq without any experience reporting
in a war zone and covered the civilian
perspective before and after the inva-
"I wanted to be a voice for the people
who were in the middle of the country,
without any control whether there was
going to be a war on top of them,"
In Afghanistan, Sinclair photo-
graphed women who had set them-
selves on fire as a way to protest the
government's oppression of them.
"I was just crying while I was taking
these pictures," Sinclair said.
She also took
pictures of Afghani
girls being married to
older men, such as an
11-year-old girl mar-
rying a much older
man with gray hair
because her family
Sinclair didn't have enough
money to support her.
"It's too hard to come back and
pretend I didn't see it," Sinclair said.
"We have a major responsibility to show
people what's going on over there."
Sinclair also covered former
Palestinian Prime Minister Yasser
Arafat's funeral. She recalled standing
in the middle of the crowd mourning
Arafat and being groped by more than
10 men while covering the event for
"I basically punched my way through
Arafat's funeral," she said.
Even so, Sinclair said she believes
Americans should see what is happen-
ing in the Middle East.
"Everybody over there knows what's
going on in America," Sinclair said. "But
we don't know what's happening to
Sinclair, who worked for the Chicago
Tribune for five years, is now based in
Beirut, Lebanon where she is a contract
photographer for Corbis, a photo agency
based in New York City.
"Every semester the Department
of Journalism brings a speaker to the
college so that students can receive ad-
vice from people with a great level of
enlightenment," said John Freeman, a
photojournalism professor who taught
Sinclair in the mid-1990s.
. Journalism Master Lecturer Mike
Foley, himself a visiting Hearst pro-
fessional two decades ago, said it is
important to bring practicing journal-
ists to share their experiences with
"It's inspiring to see what she has
gone through," Foley said. "I would
have peed in my pants."

working here," she said.
She stressed that Parks was a dedicated ac-

that made her famous in history. She said Parks
was a real person and a role model.

aunt in Rosa Parks," she said. "I see myself in

"I think I'm just one person; What can I do?"
Hope said. "Rosa Parks shows that yeah, you're
just one person, but you can do a lot."
"This should be a major rejoicing of a well-
lived life for someone who did something for
all of us," Hardman said. "All of us."

Gators attempt to clinch SEC
By BRYAN JONES
For the second year in a row,
Tennessee handed the Gators a real-
ity check, and UF's magic number is
down to two.
The No. 6 UF volleyball team (21-
2, 11-1 Southeastern Conference) will
wrap up its four-game road trip this
weekend, taking on Alabama (20-5,
8-4) tonight before playing Auburn
(8-12, 2-10) on Sunday.
Should the.Gators come out vic-
torious in both weekend matches,
they will emerge with at least a tie
- possibly a win, for their 15th con-
secutive SEC title. After that, they re-
turn home for their final two regular
Coming off a tough 3-2 loss
against Tennessee that ended UF's
203-match winning streak against
unranked opponents, the Gators
may have a little extra motivation
to get back on the winning track and
claim the,title early.
"We'll learn from it," Coach Mary
Wise said. "It was one of those
matches that we'll get a whole lot
better from. We'll certainly be watch-
ing a lot of videotape.
"The good news is, it's one match.
We're still in control of an SEC cham-
pionship, and that is what we are
W [this] weekend."
bodes well for UF's
chances of win-
ning the SEC title
this weekend. The
Gators have never
Wise lost to Alabama
and are 20-0 against
the Crimson Tide under Wise.
Alabama, however, is 9-1 at home
this season and is not the pushover
they have been in the past, Wise
"[We are going.to play a] much
improved Alabama team," she said.
"Now our challenge is, how do we
respond off of a loss?"
The Gators have had similar suc-
cess against Auburn, holding a 25-1
record versus the Tigers, including a
21-0 mark under Wise.
In fact, UF has not lost a match to
any team from the state of Alabama
with Wise at the helm. Factor in the
Gators' 2-0 record against Alabama-
Birmingham, and UF'is 43-0 under
Wise against teams from Alabama,
winning 129 of the 133 games.
While Auburn's 2-10 conference
record puts them in second-to-last
place in the SEC, the Gators are
perceived as the juggernauts of the
conference, causing every match to
be dangerous, Wise said.
"We think every team, when they
play Florida, comes with a little ex-
tra," she said. "We've created that.
We understand that the target on our
back is big no matter who we are
"We fully expect every night that
we will get everybody's best shot,
whether we are here in the O'Connell
Center or on the road."

While the Saints are still learn-

roster is loaded with freshmen
that were all-state Florida selec-

Coach Chris Mowry has made
sure that they know what to ex-

"We're happy with the results
this evening," he said. "With the
freshmen, we haven't developed
that consistency yet where we're
working hard and practicing
hard every day.

Gators knocked out of SEC Tourney in first round
By SPENCER DAVIS-VANNESS
Throughout the season, the UF soccer
team said the key to victory was simple:
score goals early in the game.
In the Gators' first-round match of the
Southeastern Conference Tournament
against Auburn on Thursday, sophomore
forward KeLeigh Hudson scored one in less
than six minutes.
Game, set and match for the Gators? Not
Auburn responded with a newfound
spark and solid defense to hand the Gators
their second-ever loss in a non-final match
of the SEC Tournament. Auburn was the
first to defeat UF in 1995.
"Our team did a great job of keeping
their composure," Auburn coach Karen
Hoppa said. "We battled and battled all
At the 30-minute mark, Auburn forward
Kristin Stewart sent a chip shot; which
seemed to catch the Gators' defense off
guard, sailing up, over and into the goal for
a game-tying score.
The Gators had dominated the game for
the first 25 ..-nutes, but Stewart's score iced
"I thought we had good rhythm early in
the game," UF coach Becky Burleigh said.
"We had a lot of opportunities early, but we
didn't do what we needed to do. We let them
hang around in the game."
Auburn didn't just hang around. They
took the field in the second half with new
composure and energy that seemed unlikely
after the match's opening tone.
And while the Tigers recomposed, the
After picking up a pair of yellow cards in
the opening 10 minutes of the second half,
UF let another goal slip by this time from
Auburn's Ronda Brooks off of a comer kick.
That was it.
"I thought we had good rhythm
early in the game. We had a lot of
opportunities early, but we didn't
do what we needed to do. We let
them hang around in the game."
UF soccer coach
The Tigers fell back into a defensive
position, and the Gators, though given
plenty of opportunities, were unable to tie
"Toward the end of the game, we
started to panic a bit and were taking ill-
advised passes," Burleigh said. "We didn't
have the composure late in the game."
A major factor in the match was the ab-
sence of senior forward Cherry Pickman,
who was suspended after receiving a
red card in Friday's win against South
The Gators now must prepare for an
NCAA Tournament Regional. The loca-
tion has not yet been determined, but a
Florida State-hosted event in Tallahassee
looks more likely than the tournament
being held in Gainesville. The NCAA
Tournament has been unkind to the Gators
in recent history.
After winning the 1998 National
Championship, the Gators have had nu-
merous early exits, including a surprising
first-round loss to Central Florida last

FOOTBALL, from page 20
Despite the hype surrounding
Manson, the back carried the ball
like a stack of textbooks, often drop-
ping his wrist below his elbow.
Big plays be darned, Meyer
wasn't about to jeopardize field po-
sition or scoring opportunities with
lackadaisical ball handling.
"That's all he looks at," junior
tailback DeSliawn Wynn said. "You
can break a 60-yard run, and if the
ball isn't high and tight like he wants
it, he's always going to say some-
thing to you. He might even pull
you out for a series or two."
Walking through the corridors of
the Swamp's south end zone, news-
paper photos plaster doors, serving
as reminders of proper ball security.
Violating Meyer's policy, however,
calls for a less subtle approach.
"If we see [newspaper photos],
and the kid's holding it the right
way, that one gets blown up and
put on the door," Meyer said. "If it's
someone scoring a touchdown, and
[the ball] is out there, it doesn't .get
blown up. It's given to me, and I go
meet with the young man."
It's an experience best avoided,
to say the least.
"That's the last thing you want to
do," Casey said, "get the head coach
to take a picture and blow it up and
dog you in front of everybody."
Lately, the Gators have given
their coach less fodder for embar-
rassment. Meyer said he's proud of
his team for learning how to carry
the football properly.
But sometimes fundamentals are
washed away in a stream of adrena-
line when roughly 1,700 pounds of
defensive muscle is all that separates
you from a first down.
"I think I still get a little wild
when I get in there and kind of
change my ways," said Wynn,
who fumbled a hand-off exchange
against Georgia for UF's-lone turn-
over. "In practice, I just try to work
on it so it becomes second nature."
But for some, it already has.
"Wrist over the elbow," Casey
said. "That's the only thing you've
got to know about Gator football if
you plan on touching the ball wrist
above the elbow."

Let's face it. When someone says
Nashville, you're not exactly thinking
football. What does come to mind?
How about whiskey, women and some
good old country music sounds?
According to John Dowell, history
director for the Ryman Auditorium,
it all started when riverboat captain
Thomas Ryman befriended the Rev.
Samuel P. Jones, a Georgian who came
to claim wayward souls in the Music
City. Jones would travel the country
preaching out against short skirts, gam-
bling and drinking, a lifestyle to which
Nashville was accustomed.
Ryman built a tabernacle for his
evangelist friend in 1892, but faith
didn't pay the bills. By 1914, Ryman be-
come a full-time entertainment venue,
and little more than a decade later, it
would begin its climb to worldwide
fame as home of the Grand Ole Opry.
The Opry debuted in 1925 as a radio
show called the WSM Barn Dance, the
oldest radio show in the world, ac-
cording to Dowell. Two years later, the
show's announcer informed the audi-
ence, "You've just heard one hour of
music from the grand opera."
The rest is hillbilly history. The
Ryman's list of acts over the years is a
who's who of country music. It made
the King of Country, Roy Acuff, an
American icon in the 1940s.
"One of the battle cries of the
German army in World War II was,
'To hell with Mickey Mouse, to hell
with FDR and to hell with Roy Acuff,'"
Elvis once played to a cold Ryman
audience. Bluegrass music being born
on the auditorium's stage some 60 years
ago, the locals weren't exactly prepared
for the King's boogie-woogie version of
"Blue moon of Kentucky."
Johnny Cash brought his narrative,
railroad drifter style to the Ryman.
But if one performer stands above the
rest in Opry lore, Dowell said it has
to be Hank Williams, who introduced

Meyer obsessed with ball security
By BRYAN APP
Alligator Staff Writer
Coach Urban Meyer will never forget the
day he learned how to hold a football.
As a budding assistant at Notre Dame,
Meyer was asked by then-Irish coach Lou Holtz
to explain proper ball-carrying techniques to
the coaching staff.
"I remember reading a coaching manual one
time how you have all these .different ways to
hold it, so I started giving my coaches a one-
on-one speech," Meyer recalled. "[Holtz] told
me to shut up and sit down, and here's how
to do it."
From then on, it was Holtz' way or the
Whether at Bowling Green, Utah or UF,

was about making plays," tailback Markus

Huertas leaves Puerto Rico, finds new home
By DAN TREAT
He entered the game with 13
minutes, 21 seconds remaining
in the first half to the applause
of a crowd 1,300 miles away
It took him just 22 seconds to
pick up his first foul, but when
he got a good look on offense, he
spotted up. Craig Kilborn might
have described it best.
With the Rowdy Reptiles
exploding to his right, David
Huertas knew he had made it.
A long journey that began off
of Exit 33 in Humacao, Puerto
Rico, was complete.
"It felt great," Huertas said.
"All the fans, all the people
cheering for you. It was great.
How many people? 8,000 peo-
ple? It feels great."
The actual attendance at
the O'Connell Center for UF's
86-48 exhibition victory against
Embry-Riddle Monday was

didn't matter much.. Huertas

Cornerback overcomes stature
By IAN FISHER
Alligator Staff Writer
It could have been when his son was named a starter
for his own Florida Gators.
It could have been when he was named a captain, or
even when he received the title of "The Face of Florida
Vernell Brown Sr. has a whole laundry list of times in
his son's life to be proud of.
His son has won basketball championships in high
school, has made countless plays as a Gators' starting
cornerback and has become a father.
But one thing sticks out more than any of that to
Vernell Brown Sr.
On April 29, Vernell Sr. watched his oldest son
become the first member of his immediate family to
receive a college degree.
"The thing I remember most is sitting there smiling
with tears running down my eyes," Vernell Sr. said. "I
actually saw a dream come true."
From the moment Vemell Brown Jr. started playing
Pop Wamer football, his father emphasized ti6. impor-
tance of a degree. Vernell Sr. and two of Vernll's uncles,
Johnell Brown and Charlie Brown, all played football for
their hometown Gators, but they fell short of graduat-
. in. Vemrnell Sr. said he was about 30 hours away from
When Vemell first started playing football, he and his
father ma4e a list of three ;oal- for him: a football schol-
arsitiv to UFRsuccess o?'the field and most importantly,
a college degree. -
Vemell Sr. stressed his son's education so much be- ;'
cause he didn't want him to waste the opportunity as
Now, the Gators' starting cornerback has met all
three goals and is currently in grad school. He is the
only player on the team sitting on a degree.
"It felt great to walk across that stage," Vernell said.
"You get here and everythings'eems like it's so far off, as
far as a degree."
Vernell had to fightiltrough quite a bit to get that
degree. 5 .
The Little Man
Almost allof Vernell's peaks and valleys in his time
at UF were because of one thing his height. s
Vernell has been constantly questioned, constantly
doubted because of his stature. He stands at 5 i ooi-S, the
Gators' shortest starter. /

ing about his son's height before 'the Gators' 'game

watching his son during that 16-I Gators victory. '
"All day long, I listened to'those guys on ESPN talk-

Football granted him the opportunity, but Vernell
Brown seized it, becoming the first member of his
immediate family to receive a college degree.
Brown is the only UF player to have already gradu-
the doubters wrong every Saturday, thanks in part to his
father calling defensive coordinator Charlie Strong and
convincing him to move Vernell back to defense.
But around when he moved back to cornerback,
Vernell received even better news from Emiliana
Russell, his fiance.
She was pregnant.
The Little Girl
On Nov. 15,2004, Russell gave birth to Kendall Renee
Brown. Vemell calls it by far the best moment of his life.
"It felt good in a way just to know that there was
something that I could give him that you really can't
put a price on," said Emiliana, who works for the
Department of Children and Families.
When Vemell found out his baby was going to be a
girl, he was so excited because he never had a sister and
wanted a girl.
"He called everybody," Emiliana said.
Now, Vemell's days are even busier. He takes his
daughter to day care in the morning and plays with her
"She lights up when she sees him, and she fusses
when he leaves," Emiliana said.

doesn't work out, he has a backup plan working with
children. Being a youth counselor is his calling, he said.
The NFL, however, would be so much better for the
time being. Vernell can always become a youth coun-
selor later in life.
It would be a continuation of the football lineage in
the Brown family. Vernell's younger brother, Vincent, is
a junior at Gainesville High and also wants to play for
UF. Football is a way of life in the Brown household.
But Vemell Sr. isn't into the NFL, even though
Vemell's mother, Valarie, loves it.
"On Sundays, I can't sit and watch a whole NFL
game, and she wants to sit there and watch football all
day," Vernell Sr. said about his wife. "Often, I'll tell her,
'Let's turn the TV to something'else,' and she gets an at-
titude because she wants to watch football all day."
Vernell already had to turn Emiliana into a football
fan; she hadn't attended a UF game before she met him.
So why not turn his dad on to the NFL? ,
Even if that doesn't work out, there's so much more
Vemell has accomplished to be proud of.
"He such a little man doing such big things,"
Emiliana said, "so I'm really proud of him."

Vernell Brown almost never had the opportunity to take
part in the post-game singing of the UF alma mater, a blos-
soming tradition of the Coach Urban Meyer era. Due to his
5-foot-8 frame, Brown was overlooked by the staff of former
Coach Ron Zook and considered transferring.
Defense strives for shutout

two pieces of gourmet French bread.
Welcome to Vanderbilt week, the final

Commodores are actually a much-improved
squad from the usual bottom-dweller that
always faces the Gators this time of year.
But a week after UF defeated Georgia 14-
10, and a week before the Gators face Steve
Spurrier's South Carolina Gamecocks for
a chance to lead the SEC East, Saturday's,
game certainly doesn't have much luster.
Since the Gators may not have much at
stake in this one, the players are thinking
about other things like the number zero.
"We would like to go out there and shut
everyone out," said linebacker Brandon
That's about all you're going to get this
week, considering that all of the buzz sur-
rounds the Gators defense.
By now, with three games remaining in
the season, it's clear that UF's defense is the
backbone of the team.
The Gators' defense currently ranks fifth
in the nation, while the offense, which had
been expected to carry the team from the
looks of the off-season, is No. 67 nationally.

Chad Jackson said. "You never know. It'll

Meyer reorganized the offense into a
more traditional downfield :attack against
Georgia. When UF scored two touchdowns
in the first 6 minutes, it looked like the per-
fect coaching move.
'Although the Gators
didn't score again, the
14 points proved to be
enough for a huge confer-
Meyer said he will
likely use the scaled-down,
Jackson offense against speedy
defenses, while calling on
options and trick plays against other teams.
Vanderbilt is one of those other teams,
and its coach, Bobby Johnson, isn't quite
sure what to expect from UF's offense.
"That's the trouble you have when you
prepare for Florida," Johnson said. "They
can do both, and we have to prepare for
"They're going to choose to go one route
or another or may go half and half, I don't
know. That puts a burden on us to make
sure we get enough practice time against
both versions of their offense. I'm sure we'll
see examples of both."

It must be Urban Meyer snoring.

right. There must be something.

the Tater Salad campaign trail, it finally looks like I've made a
difference in his life.
Play Markus Manson ... never mind. The Gators remem-
bered they had a fast guy listed at tailback before the Georgia
game. There's still no comment from the coaching staff on ru-
mors that Manson has really been fast since two-a-days.

Instead of sophomoric Georgia fans drawing the ire of
Gators fans, we'll have about 32 Vanderbilt fans, averaging
1590 on their SATs, who drove down to Gainesville to see what
