GO WEST, YOUNG MAN


Wednesday reopening set


By VINCENT M. MASSARO
Alligator Writer

An expanded and renovated
Library West will open its doors
to the public Wednesday at 1 p.m.
after nearly three years of work
that cost UF $30 million.
SWith an elated sigh of relief,
Bill Covey, the interim direc-
tor of library support services,
made the announcement Friday
afternoon to library staff after
receiving word that the building
was fit for use.
An official opening ceremony
will not be held until late Fall.
On Friday, architects
from Long & Associates and
UF Facilities Planning &
Construction officials completed
their final walkthrough of the,
library, giving their stamp of
approval to the UF Department
of Environmental Health and
Safety, which issued the certifi-
cate of occupancy.
An official from the health
and safety department combed
through the library Thursday
himself, signing one of the last
,major approvals.
"I've been walking through
this building for the better part
of a year and a half most of the
time without elevators," Covey
said.


The old library was
square feet, and 60,000
feet were added in the


117,000
square
expan-


sion.
The old structure, which was
renovated, is six floors high.
The expansion was added to the
north side of the building and is
three floors.
Upon passing through the
library's revolving doors, esca-
lators lead to the second floor,
where the walls are curved and
paneled in hickory a difficult
design for the builders to achieve,
Covey said.
Several new computers line
the circulation desk, and a glance
out the southern windows re-
veals a perfect pan-
Library orama of Century
West Tower, the University
Auditorium and the
sea of green that is the Plaza of
the Americas.
Back the other way, hallways
head north and hundreds of
shelves appear. Exposed pipes
and vents decorate the ceiling.
Polycarbonate sheets are
suspended above the shelves to
diffuse the fluorescent light, a
method that helps preserve the
books.
West University Avenue comes
into view, a sight that only gets
better with each rising floor.
Spacesaver-brand shelves of-
fer compact storage of books, and
they are expanded and condensed
with the touch of a button.
Floor integrity was an issue
during the construction, Covey


Jason Henry/ Alli
After undergoing nearly three years of renovation, Library West will open to the public Wednesday.


said. In the old portion of the
building, compact storage is only
on the ground floor.
Books in the library put more
stress on structure than do cars in
a parking garage, Covey said.
About 55 tractor trailers of
steel were brought in for the
shelves, with two more trucks
full of bookends alone.
With 855,000 books on the
shelves, the space is only half
full. A functional capacity is


about 80 percent, according to
Covey, or 1.5 million books.
"It's never a finished project,"
Covey said. "We don't want to
have it all full."
Desks and chairs populate
the free space with their as-yet-
untouched surfaces. Armchairs
have cupholders and swiveling
desks on either side. Computer
stations also stand among the
crowd, their keyboards waiting
to be stroked by busy hands.


There are about three times
as many computers as before the
renovation and about four times
as many seats than in the old
library.
"We wanted it to look mod-
ern, not dusty and old like most
people think of a library," Covey
said. "We're trying to make this
an inviting place that's comfort-
able and easy to use."
But Library West is still a work

The renovated Library
West features innova-

equipped with cuphold-

and new computers-and
study areas for students.
The renovation cost $30
million and took nearly
three years to complete.


M After a lengthy update that
leaves few reminders of the
old building, the renovated
Library West is scheduled to
reopen Wednesday. As the
opening nears, students are
ready to browse the shelves

ON CAMPUS
UAA, fans look ahead to
future stadium expansion
With the June announcement
of the Ben Hill Griffin Stadium ex-
pansion, UF students are welcom-
ing the proposed addition.
Telly Concepcion, a Gators de-
fensive back, said the expansion
of the weight room will bring the
football team closer together.
"Right now we have to split
up into four different workout
groups," he said. "With the-new
weight room, well have almost
all the team together at one time,
which will give us better team
chemistry."
The $12 million to $15 million
expansion will be funded mostly
by the Gator Boosters, said Brian
Barton, a University Athletic
Association coordinator of opera-
tions.
Barton also said the project does
not have an official contractor or
start date because the UAA wants
to raise more money.
The renovation will expand
the stadium weight room, the
football coaches' offices and the
Gator Room, a space for recruit-
ing athletes and for special events,
Barton said.
The project will also create a
visible entryway on the southwest
side of the stadium, establishing
a focal.point at one of the main
intersections on campus, Gale
Lemerand Drive and Stadium
Road, according to a UAA project
report. It will also serve as the main
entrance for the football program.
Barton said the project will
make the stadium a -first-class
facility.

STATE

Gator season to begin


By TRACI COATES
Alligator Contributing Writer

Gator season starts Aug. 15 and it
has nothing to do with football.
Anyone with an alligator-trapping
license and harvest permit is able to par-
ticipate in the two-and-a-half month long
statewide gator hunt this fall. The hunt
ends Nov. 1.
Licenses cost $250 and allow a hunter
to take two alligators throughout the
season.
"I think it'd be pretty cool," said SFCC
student Max Goodman. "As long as I
have my legs when it's over."
Hunters need to be more cautious
dealing with alligators than other animals
because of their size and biting capabili-
ties, said Harry Dutton of the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
He said the state has a very low record of
serious injuries involving alligators.
"People do get nipped," Dutton said.
"But no one has died or had their hand
bit off. I've never even heard of someone
losing a finger."
Dutton said the classes give potential
hunters a chance to ask questions. They
also are a good opportunity to teach legal
techniques.
Hunting can be done in lakes and
rivers all over Florida. The lakes must
be labeled as designated alligator man-
agement units to legally hunt in them,
Dutton said.
Dutton said pistols, rifles and other
firearms are not legally allowed to be
used on alligators. Any weapon that a
person can attach manually to the alliga-


tor with a restraining line is legal, includ-
ing harpoons and bows and arrows.
"You gotta let him wear himself
out," said Steve Stiegler, assistant leader
of Florida's Alligator Management
Program. "Once he's exhausted you can
drag him in."
"People do get nipped. But no
one has died or had their hand
bit off. I've never even heard of
someone losing a finger."
Harry Dutton
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission employee

After the alligator has fought and been
pulled to the boat, a hunter is allowed to
use a bang stick to kill it, Stiegler said.
A bang stick is a spear-like weapon that
shoots bullets from the end. It is used in
the water, and the pressure, not the bullet,
kills the alligator.
Male or female, young or retired, a va-
riety of people hunt alligators and attend
the training classes, Dutton said.
"We see grandfathers every year,"
Dutton said. "And we see new 18-year-
old faces who are just old enough to
hunt."
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission offers free
alligator-harvest training and orienta-
tion classes throughout the summer. The
next class will be held on Saturday at the
Okeechobee County Agri-Civic Center.
The classes cover safety, handling and
effective methods of hunting alligators.


Locals prevail


in pasta fight.
By EMILY LYONS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Some looked determined. Some looked
scared. One just looked hungry.
These were the participants at a spa-
ghetti-eating contest Saturday, where food,
bikinis, sweat and beer combined to create
an unusual poolside experience.
Six contestants feasted under the 4 p.m.
sun during the contest, which was spon-
sored by Gatorfood.com and held at pool in
the Campus Club Apartments complex.
Behind the participants stood six bikini-
cad young women, who flipped number
cards to keep track of the number of spa-
ghetti bowls and amount of meat sauce the
contestants devoured. A crowd of about 50
watched the feast, most with beers in hand.
Wearing shirts that read "I shoved it in
my mouth," five men and one woman sat
behind a table with four bowls of spaghetti
each and cups of water. No silverware was
provided.
Two men dressed in striped referee shirts
and bathing suit shorts regulated the event.
They disqualified one contestant for putting
his portion of spaghetti in his neighbor's
bowl when she wasn't looking.


With a face covered in sauce, noodles on
his shoulder and a green cast on his left arm,
Jason Vargas, 20, ate his way to victory by
consuming almost three bowls of spaghetti
in 12 minutes.
"I didn't eat last night, breakfast this
morning or lunch this afternoon," he said
after the competition.
He did not let his cast get in the way as
he shoved handful after handful of pasta in
his mouth with his other hand.
Vargas won a night of VIP service with
five friends at Rehab, a dub in downtown
Gainesville.
Second-place winner Kevin Moore, a
23-year-old UF alumnus,
Around said Saturday's competi-
r-u_ nd- tion marked the second
time he had won second
place in an eating con-
test. Moore received a $50 Gatorfood gift
certificate but will not be able to progress
to the finals.
"My strategy was pacing," he said. "I got
edged out at the end because the other guy
was more motivated."
Jason Julian, who works for Gatorfood,
organized the contest. He said he had spent
two months planning the event.
For the past three weeks, contestants
competed in other eating contests for a
chance to eat again in the finals, Julian said.
The first-place winners will compete next
weekend at the finals, where they will eat
Applebee's hamburgers. -

Gender gap widens at UF, universities nationwide

Gender gap widens at UF, universities nationwide


By CHAD SMITH
Alligator Contributing Writer

Studying for financial accounting in the
Reitz Union earlier this month, Jess Clark was
admittedly falling behind his female study
partner, Danielle Thomas.
Though the single course could be an ab-
erration for Clark, a UF English major, and
Thomas, a UF food and resource economics
major, it is a sign of the times on college cam-
puses nationwide.
Women first outnumbered men at UF in
1998, but women are now not only arriving
at universities in greater numbers than men
- they are also earning better grades and are
more likely to get bachelor's degrees within
four years, according to U.S. Department of
Education statistics.
UF follows that national trend, said Jeanna
Mastrodicasa, the junior associate director of
the Honors Program at UF.
The average female grade point average
for the Spring 2006 semester was 3.33, while
the average male GPA was 3.14, according to
university statistics.
Members of UF's Greek community have
not been spared from the gender divide either:


The average fraternity member GPA was 3.271
while sorority member GPA was 3.402.
"If you look at leadership in student orga-
nizations, it's also predominantly women,"
Mastrodicasa said.
It is partly a maturity level issue and a mat-.
ter of focus, she said. Traditionally, women
mature earlier in high school and begin think-
ing about putting together resumes before
men do.
Thomas, the food and resource economics
major, said women are more attentive and an-
swer more questions in her classes. Although
she did not want to say women were trying to
compete with men in academics, she said they
do feel like they have something to prove.
"We definitely want to show them that
we're individuals," she said.
UF Provost Janie Fouke knows the intimi-
dating feeling of looking around a classroom
and seeing only few members of her gender.
Fouke, who holds a graduate degree inbio-
medical mathematics and engineering from
the University of North Carolina at Chapel
Hill, said, "I've been in many classes where
there were 100 men and two women."
She could not apply to Ivy League schools
such as Yale University and Dartmouth
College because they were not admitting


undergraduate women before she graduated
high school in 1969.
Because women did not have the same
educational opportunities as men for so many
years, they might feel they have to perform
better, Fouke said.
"If you look at leadership in stu-
dent organizations, it's also pre-
dominantly women."
Jearna Mastrodicasa
junior associate director of the Honors Pro-
gram at UF

Although, she added, "I think most high
achievers compete with themselves more than
they compete with others."
American history professor Steve Noll,
who joined the UF faculty in 1992, has noticed
the gender shift.
Reading off of the online roll for his Fall
course on United States History Until 1877,
Noll saw a lot more Gabrielles and Laurens
and Rachels than he saw male names. In that
and the other American history survey course,
U.S. History Since 1877, which many students
take to meet general education requirements,


about 60 percent of the students are women,
he said.
But in the seminar for history majors that
he taught in the Spring, there were only five
women in the 22-student class, because there
are more men'who major in the subject, he
said.
Men made up about 42.5 percent of the
country's college students in the fall of 2004,
according to Education Department statistics,
the most recent available.
But in the Fall 2005 semester at UF, they
made up about 47 percent, according to
records on the UF Office of Institutional
Planning and Research's Web site.
In areas where the majority is historically
men like engineering, things have not changed
much. Of the 6,635 College of Engineering stu-
dents enrolled in Fall 2005, 5,294 were men
- nearly 80 percent.
Also, men still make up the majority of
Honors students, Mastrodicasa said.
Men perform better on standardized tests
like the SAT and the ACT, a major factor in ad-
mittance, because, generally, men score higher
on the math portions, she said.
According to officials in the UF Office of
Admissions, the incoming freshmen class is
expected to be about 60 percent female.

Give thanks

City approves much-

needed towing laws
It may be difficult for us to admit, but sometimes the
Gainesville City Commission gets things right.
Earlier this month, the commission approved a num-
ber of changes to local towing regulations. And as a group
of people so familiar with the wonders of the local towing
market, we couldn't be happier.
No longer will you have to pit your word against the tow-
ing companies' while they hold your car as collateral; towers
will have to take photographs proving that a car was illegally
parked before they can tow it.
And no longer will you have to face an additional fee for
not having exact change when retrieving your vehicle; tow-
ing companies will be required to accept credit cards.
All the planned changes are scheduled to go into effect
within the next few months.
But we expect that those changes will make a few towing
company owners a little unhappy. When the issue of pay-
ment via credit cards was brought up last spring, it provoked
a hostile response from Ultimate Towing President Stan
Forron.
"If a company wants to go out of business, sure, they'll
accept credit cards," he said.
We might call that an added bonus, but if towing compa-
nies are seriously in danger of going out of business because
they accept credit cards, they should petition the city com-
missioners to raise towing rates simple as that.
Hopefully, the recent changes will prompt a more serious
discussion of alternatives to towing. For a city so intent on
revitalizing its downtown area, the commission should be
seriously concerned about the ubiquitous "tow-away zone"
signs along University Avenue and Main Street.
But, for all our gripes, the towing companies play an im-
portant role: keeping people off other people's property.
In the same interview last Spring, Forron, apparently de-
termineed to play the role of the angry towing-company guy
out to the very end, said, "All these folks say 'you target the
students,' but we target people who park illegally.... We are
contracted to do a job, and we're gonna do it."
Hats off to him. And remember: If you don't want your
car towed, make your friends drive.

A simple choice


B eing college students,
we understand pro-
crastination.
The rationale for pro-
crastination is at once both
comfortingly familiar and
brilliantly simple: Why do
today what we could do to-
morrow, when tonight we
might die in our sleep?
But a crucial element of
being a good procrastinator
is knowing when to stop.
Next Monday, Aug. 7, is
the last day to register in
the state of Florida to vote


in this Fall's election.
Mark that day well,
because if we've learned
nothing else .from East
Coast rapper P. Diddy, it's
that there is a fundamental
decision that all individuals
must make throughout the
courses of their lifetimes.
There are only two basic
alternatives, and P. Diddy
does not make exceptions
for late registrations.
Vote, or die.
We hope you choose
wisely.

Letters to the Editor
Boyles makes a good decision
I was pleasantly surprised to
hear that the search for a new
Student Body vice president will
be in the open so every student
on campus will have the ability
to be heard on the subject, as
well as throw his or her hat into
the ring.
It was not long ago that these
types of situations were handled
completely in the dark, and the
public interest was a mere for-
mality. I am glad to see that the
new generation of SG leadership
has moved on from their cryptic
legacy.

Cherry-picking the facts,
Foster? I wouldn't call incorpo-
rating statistics on home owner-
ship, inflation, crime, poverty
and unemployment as cherry-
picking. And the war in Iraq?
Last time I checked, it isn't quite
over yet.
While William Foster was
quick to blast Mr. Nobles' com-
parison of President George W.
Bush and former President Bill
Clinton, he has absolutely no
qualms about making a direct
comparison between two differ-
ent presidents in two different
time periods, fighting two dif-
ferent wars for two completely
different reasons in two different
areas of the world. History goes
to the victors, and the victor in
this fight most definitely would
be Matt Nobles.

Woman fends off early morning intruder in attack


By TRACI COATES
Alligator Contributing Writer

Aman attacked a woman living in Windsor
Park apartments in her hallway early Friday
morning.
The 20-year-old college student finished
studying for a test and went to bed at about
S 1:30 a.m. Shortly after, she heard her apart-
ment's alarm system beep, telling her that a
door or window was open.
She got out of bed to see what it could be,
as she knew no one else was home, according


to the Gainesville Police.
The suspect "bull-rushed" the woman,
forcing her back into her bedroom, then tore
her clothes off, GPD spokesman Sgt. Keith
Kameg said.
"It appears his intent was only to rape the
suspect," Kameg said.
The woman kicked, scratched and
screamed at the suspect until he finally gave
up and ran away.
She immediately locked her door and
called the police department after she fought
him off, Kameg said.
Police didn't find evidence that the suspect


"It appears his intent was only to
rape the suspect."
Sgt. Keith Kameg
GPD spokesman

used force to enter the apartment, but the sus-
pect entered the apartment through a sliding-
glass door that the woman may or may not
have locked, Kameg said.
Officers are still investigating the case as
attempted sexual battery and possibly at-
tempted robbery.


Kameg said the woman fought back and
put herself in a great position for the situation
she was in. She was aware of her surroundings
and knew something was wrong.
Windsor Park apartments, formerly
Cambridge apartments, is located at 3705 SW
27th St.
Kameg said the apartments are located in a
place where there is usually not a lot of crime.
He said that GPD has increased patrols,
contacted surrounded communities and is
asking for anyone with information to contact
detectives at (352) 334-2470.


UCF raise puts Machen in second


By ELIZABETH ZADEZENSKY
Alligator Contributing Writer

The University of Central Florida's
president is becoming the highest-paid
president of any public university in
Florida after being granted a 40 percent
raise Thursday.
UCF trustees granted John C. Hitt,
65, a new three-year contract that
guarantees him $450,000 in base pay
and a $100,000 bonus for the 2005-2006
academic year.
As UCF's fourth president, Hitt has
conferred more than 103,000 degrees,
about two-thirds of the university's
total. He is readying the campus for a
football stadium and a medical school,
which is scheduled to be completed by
2009.
Since Hitt has been president, en-
rollment at UCF has doubled, research
has tripled and doctoral graduates
have quadrupled, said Linda Gray,
assistant vice president for news and


information at UCF.
Hitt's sharp increase in salary could
spark a salary race for the top among
university presidents, Gray said.
The pay increase and new contract
were based on a performance review
by James Koch, former president of
Old Dominion University. Koch has
evaluated more than 40 college and
university presidents
-' over the past 10 years.
News "Dr. Hitt ranks among
the top two or three most
effective presidents in this large group
and, all things considered, may well be
the most effective and productive presi-
dent I ever have evaluated," Gray said
that Koch wrote in his report.
With a base pay of $405,000, UF
President Bernie Machen's salary
places him as the second-highest paid
president in the state. Under Florida
law, any president paid more than
$225,000 a year must be paid with non-
public funds.


Machen has a very competitive sala-
ry package, said Manny Femandez, the
chairman of UF's Board of Trustees.
Presidents at UF and FSU receive
around $285,000 in bonuses for accom-
plishing their specific goals, Gray said.
Hitt's three-year goal bonus is
$210,000. He will receive it if he im-
proves graduation rates, increases
the quality of UCF's student body,
improves the quality of the faculty,
finishes the medical schoolby 2009, in-
creases grants and contracts and helps
with fund raising.
In order to keep Hitt at UCF and
give him a salary that reflects his work
of 14 years as president, Koch felt Hitt
should be making a salary comparable
to the top presidents in the country,
Gray said.
Top presidents around the country
make between $400,000 and $700,000,
according to the report.
"He is worth every penny," Gray
said.

UF program askes budding engineers to 'step up'


By MARION RAMIREZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

Everyone poops Jason Mau
and some lucky engineering fresh-
men know that firsthand.
As Mau passed around the book
"Everyone Poops" and a jar contain-
ing dried pellets of waste products,
he described his job as a wastewater
process engineer at CH2M Hill to 47
UF engineering freshmen.
Rashad Hemphill, a computer
engineering
UF UF freshman,
Academics opened the jar.
"It didn't
smell very good
at all," Hemphill said.
Mau and other employees
at CH2M Hill, an engineering,
construction and operations
company, gave UF STEPUP stu-
dents a tour of their Gainesville
offices Friday. STEPUP, which
stands for Successful Transition
through Enhanced Preparation
for Undergraduate Programs, is a
program designed to promote aca-
demic success for minority fresh-
man engineering students.
At least once a week, students
listen to guest speakers or tour com-
panies such as Gainesville Regional
Utilities, The Walt Disney Co., and


Raina Zantout/ Alligator
During the STEPUP program's visit to the CH2M Hill office Friday morning, pre-engineering freshmen
listen as an engineer speaks to them about specific jobs, disciplines and opportunities.


Anheuser-Busch Cos. Inc. The
speakers and tours give students
the opportunity to see engineers-
in the field and form contacts, said


Stephen Roberts, assistant director
for the Division of Student Affairs
for the College of Engineering.
This is the first year CH2M Hill


has invited STEPUP students to
its offices. Students visited about
nine different professionals and
attended two presentations in


three hours, said Ogechi Okpechi,
an engineer at CH2M Hill who
coordinated the tour and a former
STEPUP mentor.
"It gives them the opportunity
to see different industries," she said.
"It also gives them a head start. It's
good to see young people interested
in this area."
With cookies and refreshments,
Katie Riner, a lead technician at
CH2M Hill, highlighted the stu-
dents' career options in her presen-
tation.
Through computer programs,
Riner showed sketches of Bonita
Springs utility buildings and the
schematic phase of Gordon River, a
current project in Naples.
"The possibilities are endless,"
she said. "Just like the STEPUP
program."
At the end of the afternoon,
STEPUP students seemed tired but
happy as they took a bus back to
campus.
"They're tired, but when Fall
starts they're the ones helping
themselves out," said Roberto
Hernandez, an electrical engineer-
ing UF senior and STEPUP men-
tor. "They'll have a huge network,
friends and know the campus. And
they'll know where home is. It's
Weil Hall."


Generator could help UF prevent dinnertime disaster


By JENNIFER POPEIL
Alligator Contributing Writer

If a monster hurricane heads toward
Gainesville this year, UF officials need to be
prepared.
That's why they're forking over about
half a million dollars to build an emergency
generator on the east side of the Gator Corner
Dining Center.
"If electricity goes out [at the dining center],


there's a lot of food that's going to be wasted,"
said Michael L. Richarme, the project manager.
"How would we feed people on campus?"
The generator will support the entire facil-
ity in order to provide meals for students and
visitors who stay at the Southwest Recreation
Center during a hurricane, Richarme said.
"The purpose of the project is for
Gainesville's 'Katrina-type scenario,'" he said.
He said the generator would be strong
enough to support refrigeration, air condition-

ing, electricity and some cooking. Most of the
cooking at Gator Dining is done with natural
gas, so cooking during a hurricane would con-


tinue as long as gas was provided, he said.
The generator will start on 40 hours' worth
of diesel and then will be switched to natural
gas, he said.
The project, which started in early July, is
set to be done by Aug. 24, Richarme said.
James B. Morgan, director of UF's Business
Services Division, first contacted Richarme
about the project in January. Morgan said
UF's Business Services Division is funding
the project.

Officials: Library expansion four decades overdue


* LIBRARY OFFICIALS HAVE NEEDED
MORE SPACE SINCE OPENING.

By MELISSA THOMPSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

As anti-war rallies raged on the Plaza
of the Americas during the late '60s, UF
library officials were worried about one
thing the security of the card catalogs.
When student protesters rallied against
the Vietnam War near Library East and the
then-new Library West, built in 1967, the
university converted its card catalog sys-
tem to microfilm in case it was destroyed,
said Carl Van Ness, university archivist.
"There was some concern that some
radicals might do something to the card
catalogs," he said. "Needless to say, noth-
ing happened."
During its nearly four-decade history,
Library West has survived student pro-
tests, a growing student population and
seemingly endless renovation projects


aimed at addressing the library's need for
more space.
As a growing research institution dur-
ing the 1960s, university officials recog-
nized a need for a new facility to house
its expanding research collections, said
John Ingram, deputy director of university
libraries.
"We had no space," he said. "We knew
we would be acquiring more material to
support our graduate and undergraduate
populations."
The library closed for construction
on the addition in December 2003 after
a series of smaller renovations and the
movement of materials to Library East, the
Marston Science Library and an off-cam-
pus storage facility.
In 1963, university officials planned the
$2.2 million library, which included a pro-
posed 80,000 square-foot future addition,
according to a Library West PowerPoint
presentation created for UF in 2003.
"When Library West was built, they
planned on having a second phase," said


Vernon Kisling, science librarian and cre-
ator of the library PowerPoint presenta-
tion. "What we just finished doing was
what they wanted to do in 1967."
On April 21, 1967, Library West opened
with shelf space for 600,000 volumes, ac-
cording to the presentation.
"When Library West was built,
they planned on having a second
phase. What we just finished do-
ing was what they wanted to do in
1967."
Vernon Kisling
science librarian

Today, the newly renovated library will
use a "compact shelving" system to house
nearly 1.7 million volumes, Ingram said.
"If you lay each shelf from end to end,
you can go from here to Ocala," he said.
Although Ingram said Library West
has space for a certain amount of growth,
he said he is unable to predict how many


years it may be until the library may need
more space because it depends on the size
and number of future collections.
As growth continues to be an issue,
the use of electronic journals and books
hasbecome a popular alternative to print
materials in order to conserve space,
Ingram said.
"Most of our user groups want to get
their information at home or in an of-
fice," he said. "I think there will be an
ever-increasing shift toward electronic
resources."
The library will also continue to use
an off-campus storage site to house less
popular collections of books, Ingram said.
"A patron can request off-site mate-
rial and it will be brought to campus and
made accessible to them within 24 hours,"
he said.
Since the library closed in 2003, stu-
dents and other library patrons have used
the UF Libraries Web site to order books,
which were then delivered to the Marston
Science Library for pickup.

Two Student Government executives
interviewed candidates for SG's No. 2
spot Sunday, but neither official said he
knew when a new Student Body vice
president would be instated.
Student Body President John Boyles
and Student Body Treasurer Ryan
Moseley interviewed 14 candidates
who responded to an e-mail Boyles sent
to UF students last week. The e-mail of-
fered students a chance to interview for
the Student Body vice presidency, which
was vacated by Lydia Washington in
July when she resigned for academic
reasons.
Three of Sunday's 14 interviews
were conducted via speakerphone for
candidates who were not in Gainesville
because of study abroad programs or
Summer internships.
But UF rules say those candidates
are not qualified to hold the vice presi-
dency.

The rules mandate that an interim
vice president must take at least one
credit hour during the Summer term of
his or her appointment to the position.
Boyles said that about five candi-
dates did not meet that requirement,
but he is willing to overlook it.
He said he is just as likely to choose
someone who does not meet the
Summer credit requirement as he is to
pick someone who
-Student does.
He is willing to
lobby UF's adminis-
tration to waive the rule. However, this
may affect how long it will take for him
to select a new vice president, although
Boyles did not give a definite time frame
for his decision.
"[The decision] depends on what's
given to us by the administration,"
Boyles said Monday.
Moseley said he and Boyles would
start narrowing the list of applicants af-
ter the administration makes its decision
about Summer credit requirements.

Grad students look ahead .RII.. Vb


By ALEX TIEGEN
Alligator Writer

It has been almost three years
since graduate assistant Todd
Reynolds last browsed the book-
shelves of Library West. He said
he misses the feeling of looking
for a specific Herman Melville
book in the library and finding
another useful book on the next
shelf.
"When it shut down, I was up
in arms," said Reynolds, the chief
steward and former president of
UF's Graduate Assistants United
group.
Reynolds and other UF gradu-
ate students will again be able to
browse through Library West's
collections
UF when the build-
c :: :~.'-: ing reopens
Wednesday.
Interim Director of Support
Services Bill Covey said the new
building's sixth floor will have an
area with study carrels and other
resources exclusively for gradu-
ate students.
The floor will only be open
for a general presentation
Wednesday but is targeted to be
ready for use in the Fall, Covey
said.
The organization did not file
a formal complaint with the
university administration, but
members were concerned about
how the library's closing would
affect research and projects.
Reynolds said the renovations
delayed research for graduate
students and upperclassmen.


Students had to wait an extra day
or two to retrieve books with the
library's file retrieval system, and
they could not personally enter
the off-campus warehouse where
the books were stored, he said.
"I think it's important for a
research institution to have a li-
brary on-site," Reynolds said.
Bret Seferian, one of the two
current presidents of the orga-
nization, said he also missed
the days when he could freely
browse the library's collection.
Sometimes, he said, he would
accidentally order materials he
didn't need.
"I would just order a bunch of
books and return some of them,"
said Seferian, who is'a doctoral
candidate in history.
Some graduate students who
used to attend Florida State
Universitywould drive all the
way back to Tallahassee to use
the university's library, he said.
Now, those students will
be able to do their research in
Gainesville, but the reopening
of Library West may also bring
about some unwelcome changes.
Reynolds said he opposes
building a Starbucks in the new
building. He said the cafe could
take "up space needed for books
and might attract pests and other
book-eating animals to the new
building.
The Starbucks will be operated
by UF's food services contractor,
Aramark.
"It's not supposed to make a
profit," Reynolds said. "It's sup-
posed to be for the books."


Jason Henry/ Alligator
Workers account for reshelved books by going down a list in the stacks of Library West. One of the most
common complaints during the library's closing was students' inability to browse the shelves.


Starbucks will make late library arrival


By JAMES RIGNEY
Alligator Contributing Writer

Library West is finally opening its doors
Wednesday, but students hoping to enjoy a latte in
the new facility will have to wait until the middle
of Fall.
Construction of the library's Starbucks cafe
started Monday, said Bahar Armaghani, the project.
manager and quality assurance coordinator.
"If everything goes right, we should have it done
by the first week of October," she said.
She said both Starbucks and the university have
held up the project, as Starbucks has been working
to meet UF codes as well as making sure the library's
cafe fits the company's own standards.


The contractor constructing the coffee shop also
had to get permits for demolishing the existing
space. Then, the contractor had to obtain permits to
remodel it into a Starbucks.
Armaghani said project managers are attempting
to accelerate the cafe's opening.
"We are trying to beat the schedule
Student by one week and have it done by the
Lfe end of September," she said.
But Bill Covey, interim director for li-
brary support services, said he thinks that goal may
be tough to meet.
"I think that might be a little premature in terms
of how fast it can be done," he said.
He said he expects the construction to last until
at least October.


Minor work remains in library, but many new facilities ready for use


OPENING, from page 1


in progress.
Covey said that the library is 90 percent
complete, and many little things will be
"appearing" over the course of the Fall
semester.
Construction of an Aramark-oper-
ated Starbucks on the ground floor started
Monday and will continue until October.
Aramark is the contractor that provides
UF's food services.
During a Friday meeting, construction
officials assured that the Starbucks work
would not interfere with library opera-
tion.
But Covey said there is no budget to
fund the 24-hour study area that would
accompany the cafe.
Minor installations of wiring, win-
dow glass and shelving in various places
around the building are expected over the
next few weeks.
The library's new booth seating areas
have yet to be to be outfitted with their
DVD players and monitors, and the
library's three large plasma screens have
not been installed yet.


Also, the study carrels are not ready
and will be locked until the final adjust-
ments are made.
But parking at Library West is virtually
nonexistent.
UF transportation officials said Friday
thatparking for library patrons will not be
an option, save for a few handicap spaces.
Allison Nitsch, a UF civil engineering
major, has worked for UF's libraries since
December 2004.
She had been to the old library only
once before it closed and said she doesn't
quite remember what it looked like.
Until June, she worked in Marston
Science Library retrieving books for
students. Since then, Nitsch has been in
Library West preparing for the opening.
She dusted empty shelves before all the
books were brought in by a professional
moving service.
Now she and other staff members are
busy shelf reading, where they scan call
numbers to make sure the books are in
order.
"I'm a little shelf read-out," she said.
Nitsch said she listens to indie and folk
music while working.
When the library opens, she is slated to


work at the circulation desk.
UF journalism student Rene Perez said
he's excited about the opening because the
library has been closed since before he was
a freshman.
"We wanted it to look modern, not
dusty and old like most people
think of a library. We're trying to
make this an inviting place that's
comfortable and easy to use."
Bill Covey
interim director of library support services

He said he hopes the new library has a
modernr feel."
S"Marston tended to be somewhat sleep-
inducing," he said. "It's some good sleep,
but it doesn't help when I need to study."
And Perez said he's not worried that
the library still has work to be done.
"We'll take whatever we can get now
- as long as it's functional," he said.
UP librarian Jana Ronan is the program
director for outreach instruction and un-
dergraduate library services and has been
working for the university since 1994. She
and her co-workers moved into Library.


West's new offices in May.
"We work on the front lines with peo-
ple," she said, going on to describe that
she teaches students about library research
at the request of professors.
Ronan said she's looking forward to
more room for the collections, a better
work environment and the "clean, fresh
design."
Ronan .said she's especially excited
about new microfilm technology that will
make the process completely digital.
Before the library closed in 2003, librar-
ians at the building's main circulation
desk checked out an average of 1,000
books per day. During the closing, the
number of books students could check out
was increased to 100 for undergraduates
and 250 for graduate students.
Ronan said she and the other librarians
have the challenge of relearning the library
to prepare for student questions.
"Nothing's better than a good ques-
tion," she said.
After working with book retrievals, she
said she misses the serendipity offered by
a physical library.
"It's good to see people lose themselves
i1 the shelves." ,

UF RESEARCH

Study: Good night's rest leads to better workdays


By MORGAN LEIBY
Alligator Contributing Writer

A recent UF study highlighted the importance of a good
night's sleep for American workers and discovered that rest
affects women especially.
The results of the study, set for publication in the October
issue of the Journal of Management, suggest that a lack of sleep
can decrease employees' job satisfaction, with female workers
being particularly susceptible.
Brent Scott, a graduate student in management, conducted
the study with management professor Timothy Judge over a
three-week period in February 2005.
During the study, 45 participants visited a Web site to rate
their job satisfaction, emotional well-being and difficulty sleep-
ing at the end of each workday.
The results of the survey suggest a strong correlation be-
tween sleep problems and worker disgruntlement, something
that caught Scott off guard.
"It's intuitive that one might feel a little irritable, but to
experience emotional spillover to the point of actually feeling
less satisfied with work is a little surprising," he said in a press
release.
The study also suggests that women suffer more than men
in the workplace when sleep-deprived, citing more complaints
from female workers than from males.
In the press release, Scott suggested that sociological factors
are to blame for the difference across gender lines.
"Women are encouraged to be nurturing and more emo-
tionally expressive than men, who have been taught to remain
stoic and restrain their emotions," he said.
Steve Arnett, clinical coordinator of the Sleep Disorder
Center at Shands Hospital, was unsurprised by the findings


and said that the gender discrepancy was already well-
known..
Women, Amett attested, are naturally afflicted with more
sleep problems than men.
"Women generally have more responsibility at home," he
said, "which causes problems in general sleep patterns."
He also said that women are more likely to suffer from
problems like restless legs syndrome and primary snoring, or
snoring without sleep apnea, which prevent them from sleep-
ing soundly.
"It's simple. Go to bed and wake up the same
time every morning."
Steve Arnett
clinical coordinator of the Sleep Disorder Center at Shands
Hospital

He also noted that the study's reports of fatigue, irritability
and job dissatisfaction due to lack of sleep are consistent with
what sleep researchers had priorly established.
"Sleep is the time when your muscles heal; it's the time that
your mind mends," he said.
Julie Miller, an assistant editor for Chicago-based legal mag-
azine Inside Counsel, is intimately familiar with the toll a lack
of sleep can exert on performance at work. Miller often copes
with insomnia, which sometimes adversely affects her job.
"It's much more difficult to focus when I'm sleep-de-
prived," she said. It also makes her "a lot more irritable," and it
effectively ruins her workday when she hasn't slept properly.
Arnett explained that mental and emotional issues like
job dissatisfaction are bound to crop up in sleep-deprived
Americans, especially in a culture taxed by too much work and


too little sleep.
Forty percent of Americans, he said, suffer from some sort
of sleep problem, which likely has a major effect on their job
performance.
According to a 2005 study by the National Sleep Foundation,
20 percent of men and 26 percent of women in America get less
sleep than they need each night, with 50 percent feeling tired
and fatigued at least one to two days a week.
"Americans will stop at40 hours for the most part, but that's
still too much," Arnett said, praising many European countries'
shorter workweeks and less-pronounced sleep problems.
He acknowledged, however, that the United States still
leads those countries in worker productivity, and cited means
other than cutting their hours by which Americans can beat
sleep deficits.
He pointed to "our hunger for entertainment and lack of
self-discipline" as a major cause of sleep-related problems, and
said that people are often more concerned with catching their
favorite TV show than retiring early enough to get their opti-
mal seven to nine hours of sleep.
It is becoming increasingly difficult for workers to juggle
their work, family and recreational lives, he said, leading
people to shave precious hours from their sleep a biological
process "just as important as eating."
The stress caused by Americans' busy lives also causes sleep
deprivation. Being sleep-deprived can worsen stress, which
may also increase job dissatisfaction.
"When you're not performing at your optimal potential,
you're not likely to be satisfied by what you're doing," he said
in reference to the study's conclusions.
In addition to sacrificing waking activities in favor of more
sleep, Arnett gave other advice for workers looking to get more
rest. The key, he said, is setting a regular sleep schedule.

* RESIDENTIAL ADVISERS TOLD TO
PUT ASIDE PERSONAL BELIEFS.

By SHANNON TUCKER
Alligator Contributing Writer

They were all sinners to her, so she made a
point not to be seen in public with one.
Then, last Summer, she challenged her
beliefs and went to a Pride Student Union
meeting.
"I was really scared and didn't know what
to expect," said UF senior and Hume Hall
residential adviser Gaellissa Francis. "I kept
thinking, 'They're all gay people.'"
Being around and talking to lesbian, gay,
bisexual and transgender students completely
changed her perspective, Francis said.
This Fall's RAs will receive new, more
interactive training about LGBT issues, said
Julie A. McMahon, an assistant director at
UF's Department of Housing and Residence
Education.
"These are more powerful, more firsthand
exercises," she said. "They're going to be eye-
opening experiences for RAs."
Though RA training has always included a
diversity program, it used to gloss over sexual
orientation issues, McMahon said. Over the
last year, a diversity committee has been work-
ing to introduce more innovative and exercises
about LGBT acceptance.
One of the newest exercises involves RAs
eating "Diversity Beans," which are jelly beans
that taste differently than their colors suggest.
"You'll have a red jelly bean that tastes like
a banana instead of a cherry," McMahon said.
"We want to show that just because you look
at somebody, that doesn't mean you know
what's on the inside."


Reactions to the new training exercises
have been positive so far.
"This last year we've had some of our best
staff evaluations," she said. "Second-year RAs
noticed the difference, and we're going to keep
building on that."
Not only does McMahon hope to educate
staff, she hopes to change RAs' perspectives.
"I know that there are folks out there who,
if someone came to them, would open up their
Bibles and spout off why being gay is wrong,"
she said. "When we're hiring, it's a red flag
when we see someone who can't tolerate alter-
nate views or lifestyles."
As a freshman at Florida State University,
Paul Natiw had to put up with a lot more than
dirty looks for being gay. Men on
Student his dorm floor would hump each
Life other whenever he walked by,
and once, they covered his door
in wet toilet paper.
"I respect other people's beliefs because
I want them to respect mine," said Natiw,
now a senior at UF majoring in linguistics.
"It's wrong to reject a gay person just because
they're different or because you think they're
gross."
As for Francis, attending a Pride Student
Union meeting changed her outlook but not
her beliefs.
"I am a Christian, and I do believe homo-
sexuality is a sin," she said. "I believe that all
sins are equal, so being gay is just as bad as
being a murderer."
But that's not what a resident would hear if
he came out to Francis.
"I wouldn't tell him he's going to hell, but
I would tell him what I believe," she said. "I'd
also give him the resources to talk to someone
about it. I know how to put aside my beliefs
and do my job."

Leak denies report that alleges UF fans have racially insulted him


FOOTBALL, from page 26


Pierre-Louis.
"Will they play? Sheer numbers tell you 'yes,'" Meyer
said. "Now, are they mature enough, tough enough? I'll
let you know. Talent-wise, they're fast. [They have] good
size good, athletic-looking people. They're qualified;
they're intelligent.
"All indications are they're going to play this year '
us."
Regardless, the Gators have something special in
Nelson. As a junior transfer last season, he wowed coach-
es, players and fans alike with his speed and innate ability
to always find the football. Now, with a safety position as
deep as any on the team, moving Nelson is a no-brainer.
At a short 6-foot-i, Nelson is better geared to become a
professional cornerback anyway.


"There are fans who don't want Chris to break
Danny [Wuerffel's] records because Chris is
black."
Curtis Leak
Chris Leak's father

"I just think he needs to get on the field, regardless of
what position he's at," defensive end Ray McDonald said.
"He makes plays, and that's how everybody on our team
feels about him."

LEAK DENIES RACISM: UF quarterback Chris Leak denied
a report that he has been heckled with racist comments by
UF fans. A recent CBS SportsLine.com article quoted Leak's
father,.Curtis, as saying:
"There are fans who don't want Chris to break Danny
[Wuerffel's] records because Chris is black. ... You have to


be blind to [not] see it is still tough for blacks in general
in that conference."
The article also suggested fans at The Swamp have
verbally attacked Leak because of his color.
"I really don't listen to things outside of me getting my
education and me leading my team," Leak responded. "I
really haven't listened to any outside things,"
Asked specifically if he had ever heard racist com-
ments at the Swamp, Leak replied: "Not that I know of."

HARRIS STILL M.I.A.: Meyer still doesn't know when or if
defensive tackle Steven Harris will rejoin the team. Harris
missed most of spring camp because of personal issues.
"I wish I could say he's back at full speed, ready to go,"
Meyer said. "I can't say that. I can say that at times it's
there. ... However, there are a lot of issues still remaining
there. At the appropriate time, I'll let you know."
When active, Harris is considered a starter at tackle.


Rough year united Tigers


LSU, from page 26


During the week leading up to
LSU's first scheduled game, play-
ers and staff volunteered at Carl
Maddox Field House as the track
venue was transformed from a shel-
ter into a hospital.
The opener against Louisiana-
Lafayette was postponed.
The Tigers' equipment staff
washed 10,000
Sounds of linens to
be used at shelters.
L r Players visited
evacuees while
signing autographs and taking pho-
tographs with displaced families.
One player, quarterback
JaMarcus Russell, housed music
legend Fats Domino, his girlfriend's
grandfather.
"We had to deal with the loss of
homes, people couldn't call their
parents and things like that, the
electricity but it made us bond
as a team to really get together and
love one another," Bowe said. "It
was kind of a good thing and a bad


thing, the Katrina issue, but taught
us how to cope with disasters."
Rita another hurricane ul-
timately hit and four games were
rescheduled. '
Miles said the team did not
have a regular week until it played
Vanderbilt on Oct. 8.
Nearly a year later, an 11-2 record
and a 40-3 thrashing of Miami at the
Peach Bowl are afterthoughts.
"What this football team had
been through, the change in sched-
ule, two hurricanes, in my opinion,
gave great example to overcom-
ing obstacles and really coming
together," Miles said. "I think the
best thing you can say about the '05
team is it was selfless and unselfish.
They had great leadership and great
character."
Miles made it clear that he would
not choose to experience the ordeal
again. The events, however, helped
his players appreciate what they do
have; it helped them put everything
into perspective.
"I'll cherish this last year," Miles
said, "as difficult as it was, I promise
you."

LSU coach Les Miles answers questions during the Southeastern Conference Football Media Days in
Hoover, Ala., on Friday.


LOUIS, from page 26

"If that's controlling his thoughts,
then he's not going to play quarterback at
Florida," Meyer said. "I told him that and
he knows that.
"Our objective is very simple: You win,
and that may mean handing off to the
tailback."
What? Did I miss something?
Well, I. suppose you can say Meyer
wasn't here when Leak, an underclass-
man, vowed to stay single until he won a
national championship.
I suppose Meyer closed his eyes when
Alabama crushed Leak's shoulder last
season and the starter took several pain-
killing injections in the following weeks to
stay on the field.
Perhaps Meyer hired a professional
hologram to man the sidelines at the LSU
game; that way he can say he never saw
the Tigers sack Leak enough times to make
finely ground human ice.
In his three years and change at UF,
Leak has taken more hits off the field than
on, but this latest one might be the most
ludicrous of them all.
"That's nonsense," said Meyer of Leak's
50-totchdown goal.


Oh, I'm sorry; tell me which part of
this equation is incorrect: 50 passing
touchdowns = 350 points (assuming kicks
are converted); 350 points/14 games (as-
suming the Gators make the Southeastern
Conference title game) = 25 points /game;
25 points/game + 3 (assuming one field
goal/game) + 7 (assuming one rushing
touchdown/game) = 35 points/game.
If the Gators had scored 35 points in
every 2005 game, they would have lost
just one game.
In football, a quarterback's production
is directly proportional with that team's
success. It is possible to take a great arm,
throw in a terrible defense and put it all
to waste. UF's defense, however, is legiti-
mately prolific if there is such a thing
for a defense. It's only perceived weakness
- cornerback has already been some-
what eliminated with the Reggie Nelson
switch.
So Leak's proclamation is his way
of saying: "I'm going to be kicking ass,
taking names and finishing this year in
Atlanta with a trophy hoisted above my
head."
Meyer must not understand that logic
at work here. We're not talking about
Ricky Davis missing a layup on the wrong
end of the court so he can rebound the ball


and nab a cheap. triple-double.
In football, touchdowns equal wins.
That's it. End of story.
But this is beside the point. There is so
much more at stake here than team-first
ideologies. Leak's sanity, for instance.
Here is a football player who has
caught more flak for his public speaking
than Charlie Chaplin. Leak is a man who
keeps to himself; he clearly does not flout
the Rev. Jesse Jackson's loquacious genes.
SThis reality has driven at least 11 to 12
sports writers into alcoholism. In turn, we
keep bombarding him with scores of prob-
ing questions. It's a miracle Leak has yet
to snap.
Instead, with his 50-touchdown admis-
sion, he has finally given us a glimpse into
his soul. After all the Josh Portis gibberish,
after all the Tim Tebow aggravation, after
whispers of racism within the UF fan base,
Leak lashes back with a worthy goal.
This is Kevin McAllister busting from
under the bed, feeling his sac drop and
taking on Joe Pesci with a blowtorch.
This is Napoleon Dynamite shedding
his introvert-self for a Michael Jackson-
like dance performance.
This is Viktor Navorski discovering
himself in "The Terminal" and improving
the lives of everyone around him in the


process.
Except Leak is not being given the
chance to take on phase two.
Can you imagine Shaquille O'Neal
vowing to shoot 75 percent from the free-
throw line next season only to have Pat
Riley scold him?
Can you picture Claudio Reyna promis-
ing to return for one more World Cup and
record five assists there only to have the
United States Soccer Federation admonish
him as selfish?
Leak might never be the same, not with
his very own coach's failing to understand
his motives, his selflessness. He is being
kicked back into his shell.
Just minutes after saying he wanted 50
touchdowns, a reporter asked Leak if he
would be OK handing the ball of.every
play if that would get him an SEC title.
"I'd do it," Leak answered. "No ques-
tion."
Apparently, Meyer wasn't listening. If
Leak does somehow still pass for 50 touch-
downs, it will give him 115 career touch-
downs, one more than UF-record holder
Danny Wuerffel.
But after Meyer's recent comments and
other steady unwarranted criticism, we'll
be lucky if Leak doesn't explode like a fro-
zen soda can first.

Nelson turns corner


SIuy plulla,./ ,Iiirdur
UF junior safety Reggie Nelson celebrates after breaking up a pass against Mississippi State on Oct. 8.
A player gifted with an innate tendency to make plays, Nelson will now start at cornerback.


Safety fills void

Alligator Staff Writers
lanastasis@alligator.org,
Snzaccardi@alligator.org

HOOVER, Ala. UF coach
Urban Meyer has the cornerback
position covered.
Friday, Meyer announced he
has moved safety Reggie Nelson
to cornerback. The switch will
alleviate pressure in a second-
ary reeling from the release of
former Mainland standout Avery
Atkins.
"He's going to start at corner,"
Meyer said. "... I think he'll an-
swer the challenge. We made that
move back several weeks ago.
He's been responding."
After missing several spring
practices to deal with personal is-
sues, Atkins ran into legal trouble
midway through June. Benarah
Sanford, the mother of his child,
accused Atkins of repeatedly
punching her and trapping her in


his car for 20 minutes. Though no
arrests were made, Atkins asked
for and was granted a release.
It is believed that the Gators
will also add Utah cornerback
Ryan Smith, a freshman All-
American in 2004. Two and a half
weeks ago, Smith's father, Lance,
told publications his son was on
the verge of receiving a bach-
elor's degree in sociology and
transferring to UF in time to play
this fall. Meyer initially refused
to comment on
Smith per NCAA
policy regarding
I unsigned play-
ers. However, he
later added:
"Something might be happen-
ing, but we'll worry about that
when it happens."
Senior Reggie Lewis will prob-
ably battle with Smith should
he transfer for the starting spot
opposite Nelson. Otherwise, the
Gators will look for three fresh-
men to contribute.
Meyer had positive things
to say about Jacques Rickerson,
Markihe Anderson and Wondy

Tigers recall Katrina

HOOVER, Ala. On two pages
that could have been devoted to a con-
ference, or even a national, champion-
ship, the 2006 Louisiana State football
media guide instead features a timeline
marking the team's involvement with
Hurricane Katrina relief efforts.
Last August, when players usually
run and hit, Tigers players spent their
days picking up trash, inserting food
into feeding tubes and even housing an
aged celebrity. Their facilities became
. shelters and hospitals.
When the Tigers did hit the field,
games meant that much more.
"Coach [Les Mil1s] just told us to
go out there and win and change the
whole attitude of the state," receiver
Dwayne Bowe said. "Just go out there
and win, let the state know ... that we're
going to-try and erase it out of their
minds by winning games. It felt like we
were helping out the whole state, not

After practices, affected .play-
ers spoke about their situations.
Sometimes a player would announce
that his family had been found.
Applause, hugging and prayer
would follow.
"Coach [Les Miles] just told-
us to go out there and win
and change the whole atti-
tude of the state."
Dwayne Bowe
LSU wide receiver

"We would become that person's
brother," safety LaRon Landry said.
"We really had to lift those players
up because sometimes they had fam-
ily trapped in New Orleans. We just
motivated them and said prayers with
them and really just let God take care
of things."

Auburn coach defends school's academic practices


By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org

HOOVER, Ala. Auburn
coach Tommy Tuberville said he
doesn't expect anything to come
of the school's recent academic
scandal.
The New York Times originally
reported that 18 members of the
2004 undefeated Auburn team
took a combined 97 hours of ques-
tionable courses.
The implicated players al-
legedly overwhelmed professor
Thomas Petee with a desire, to
take sociology courses, resulting
in classes with a lax attendance
and requiring minimal work.
Auburn is investigating the issue.
"If we're
ode doing
1o something
wrong,
please look
at us and
tell us," Tuberville said on the
final day of the Southeastern
Conference Media Days. "I prom-
ise you, we'll change it.
"We're going to do things right.
I don't see anything happening. I
really can't say anything about it
'til we get done."
Auburn Interim President Ed
Richardson has already outlined
several proposals to prevent any
future troubles. In a speech given
a week and a half ago, Richardson
discussed the possibilities of lim-
iting individual-based, directed-
reading courses, ensuring their
academic valor and refining the
university's ability -to oversee
these classes.
Some believe the problem be-


gins with the number of players
wanting to major in sociology.
Tuberville disagrees.
"We've graduated 98 players in
the last three years, and I think we
had 15 in sociology. I don't think
that's major," he said. "... But you
want them to get a degree in what
they want to get one in. We don't
pick [the. degrees] for them."

ALL-SEC SELECTIONS: Auburn
was selected to win the SEC in
preseason voting conducted by a
record 104 members of the media.
UF was picked to win the SEC
East. The media, however, hasn't
picked the correct champion since
1995.
The Gators also landed sev-
eral players on All-SEC teams:
Senior quarterback Chris Leak
(first-team offense), wide receiver
Dallas Baker (second-team of-
fense), Marcus Thomas (first-team
defense), Brandon Siler (first-team
defense), Reggie Nelson (second-
team defense), Jarvis Moss (third-
team defense), Ray McDonald
(third-team defense) and Earl
Everett (third-team defense).

SEC RULE CHANGES: Hoping to
give underdogs a bit of a boost,
the SEC has announced two rule
changes to speed games along.
The game clock will now start
on an initial kickoff rather than
when the first player touches the
kicked ball.
Also, referees will no longer
wait for a snap to start the game
clock after a dead ball. Instead,
they will start the clock after plac-
ing the ball down and granting
the ready-for-play signal. There
are two exceptions: following a


timeout or if the play ends the
quarter.
"This is going to be a challenge
for the coaches and players in
terms of time management," said
Rogers Redding, the SEC's newly
appointed coordinator of officials.
Also, coaches will have one
instant replay challenge per
game for the first time. Should
the standing call be upheld, that
coach's team will be penalized a
timeout.

VANDY'S BITTER PILL: Don't ask
Vanderbilt coach Bobby Johnson
how he feels about last season's
UF game. The Commodores lost
the Nov. 5 meeting 49-42 in double
overtime. However, Vanderbilt
never had a chance to attempt a
two-point conversion and win
the game in regulation because
of a controversial penalty. Wide
receiver Earl Bennett was flagged
for an excessive celebration pen-
alty after his late score. Replays
*showed Bennett hardly did any-
thing flamboyant.
"This little lady ... said, 'Coach,
the Southern Baptists allow more
dancing than what Earl did,'"
Johnson recalled.
Johnson called the league office
to complain about the flag. "I'm not
telling you what I called them," he
said.

SABAN LIVES ON: Nick Saban left
the SEC a year and a half ago.
Then again, his spirit continues to
permeate the conference. Just ask

Auburn linebacker Will Herring.
Herring and the Tigers' de-
fense regularly watches Saban's
SMiami Dolphins defense. Auburn
also watches footage of Saban's
Louisiana State defense.

PLAYER CHATTER: Auburn Auburn linebacker Will
wide receiver Courtney Taylor on Herring on adding a 12th game
whether he is the best receiver in instead of implementing a playoff
the SEC: "Most definitely. I'm not system: "I think that's horrible, to
going to shy away from it." be honest. I think college playoffs
Taylor on whether he is the would probably be the most excit-
best in the nation: "I feel like I'm ing thing in the world next to a
World Cup."
