Graham joins students to watch debate
Former senator holds Q&A ;% "ih Ifl 9-
By JESSICA DaSILVA
Though he remained silent for
most of the night, former U.S. Sen.
Bob Graham could not help him-
self from applauding the mention
of his alma mater during a debate
Grahamr sat with UF students
to watch the televised gubernato-
rial debate between Democratic
primary hopefuls Jim Davis and
Rod Smith in Tampa.
Though Graham remained
quiet for most of the debate, stu-
dents surrounding him reacted
to candidate responses with spo-
radic laughter, nods of approval
or faces of confusion.
The event, which was hosted
by Gators for Davis and orga-
nized by Student Government
lobbying coordinator Jason Lutin,
,drew about 100 Graham support-
ers to the Reitz Union to watch
The debate was followed by a
question-and-answer session led
by Graham, who asked students
for their opinions about the gu-
Hands shot into the air as
Graham addressed inquiries.
He listened to answers intently,
maintaining strict eye contact and
rocking back and forth on his toes
until students had finished speak-
.When asked what his impres-
sion of the debates was, Graham
said both candidates looked up-
tight and that he doubted that the
debate "moved a lot of people."
Graham was in the Gainesville
area for meetings about the con-
struction of Pugh Hall, which will
house a public service center to be
named in his honor, but he said
Wednesday he was glad to watch
the debate alongside students.
Graham, a UF alumnus and
former Sigma Nu Fraternity mem-
ber, said that his family has very
strong ties to the university.

A California-based research center will
build a second facility in Orlando to forge
partnerships with the state of Florida and two
of its universities including UF.

Tallahassee to announce the location of the
proposed biomedical research facility. UF
President Bernie Machen also attended the
Researchers at the proposed facility will
collaborate with UF scientists to study areas
such as cancer, genetics, diabetes and aging.
UF Provost Janie Fouke said in an inter-
view Wednesday that the university's part-
nership with Burnham has been in the works
for several months.
"The match was a good match," Fouke
said. "They're interested in cancer, so are we.

VP office still vacant

elections just over a month away,
SG executives have yet to select
a student to fill the office of
Student Body vice president.
However, officials from sever-

hoping to run a vice presidential
candidate in the election, which
will be held Sept. 26 and 27.
When former Student Body

Student Body President John
Boyles said he hoped to an-

But as of Wednesday, SG's No.

SANTA FE COMMUNITY COLLEGE
Program's first graduates transform into teachers
* GRADUATES CHANGED COURSE
TO PURSUE CLASSROOM DREAMS.
By DREW HARWELL
A lawyer, a doctor and a- scientific
researcher gathered Tuesday to celebrate
their new careers as teachers.
The Educator Preparation Institute at
SFCC graduated its first class Wednesday
Since October, these 12 graduates, and
four more who will graduate in the Fall A
semester, have participated in five eight-
hour Saturday classes and several weeks
of classes that meet two nights a week.
After completing the program, the
graduates took three tests and then earned
their professional teaching certification,
which will last five years.
Robin Edwards, coordinator for the
institute, began the program in October
2005 after noticing certain things miss-
ing in other colleges' teacher preparation
A teacher for 12 years, Edwards wanted
to create a "straightforward and honest"
program that would strengthen teachers
with work in the classroom.
"I don't want to paint a rosy picture
and then have the teachers crying ... say-
ing 'this wasn't in the textbook,'" Edwards

After working as a civil engineer for
eight years and then working part time
to take care of her four kids, Diblin ap-

had always wanted to teach math.
"He laughed," she said. "But now I
work there, so he wasn't laughing for
long." She teaches five different levels of
math to three grades of high schoolers.

Windows were smashed, and
purses and wallets stolen this week

Gainesville fitness centers.
Police are looking for two men
in connection with eight burglaries
that occurred Monday and Tuesday,

Kameg said police believe Melvin
Brooks, 23, and Carlton Lee Grate Jr.,
27, are involved in the thefts.
"They're targeting cars driven

purses and wallets are being left in
plain view," Kameg said. "They're
in the car just a matter of seconds
and they're taking cash, credit cards,

The two men and an unidenti-

2006 Chevrolet TrailBlazer with
the Georgia license plate number
ARE9765. They were last seen
Tuesday in the parking lot at
Gainesville Health & Fitness Center

Cease-fire fuels debate
By ALEX TIEGEN
Citizens of Georges Khoury's north-
ern Lebanese hometown, Batroun, have
to drive three hours to work and three
hours back home. After Israeli bombings
destroyed major roads, drivers taking sec-
ondary routes must deal with traffic jams.
"It'd be like if the highway to Miami
were destroyed," said Khoury, a UF com-
puter engineering graduate student, who
was in Gainesville during the 34-day war.
"It was a booming economy, and
it just went back to zero."
UF graduate student
Ten days after peace was achieved be-
tween Israel and Hezbollah, UF students
and faculty dealing with the conflict's
aftermath are skeptical that the cease-fire
Ayala Betzaleli, Israeli program direc-
tor for Hillel at UF, lived near the center of
Israel during the conflict. An acquaintance
of hers, Capt. Gilad Balahson of the Israel
Defense Forces, was killed during fighting
Betzaleli thinks an effective cease-fire
agreement would have rid Lebanon of
Hezbollah. She does not expect the tenu-
ous peace to last much longer than a year.
"I believe that this war is a war worth
fighting," she said, "because we're fighting
for all the countries that have ever been-at-
tacked by terrorists."
Khoury, too, feels uneasy about the
cease-fire, which was strained Saturday
when Israel launched a raid on Lebanon.
He said the cease-fire will only last if
Israel maintains a stable relationship with
Khoury's family, which runs an agricul-
tural business, is adapting to now-unstable
economic conditions in the country
"It was a booming economy, and it just
went back to zero," Khoury said.
Khoury said some of Beirut's govern-
ment buildings, roads and factories were
destroyed in this summer's bombings.
Many Lebanese must now live in trailers,
Dennis Jett, dean of UF's International
Center, is unhappy with the cease-fire
agreement. He said U.S. officials favor
Israel when they should be unbiased ar-
The 2,000-troop U.N. peacekeeping
force that the United States supports is
not enough, Jett said. He said it is only a
sentry-like force that is not taking mea-
sures to repair relations between Israel and
"The _solution being proposed by
Washington is just to stick a bunch of
peacekeepers on the border until a solu-
tion is found," he said.

A year after the disaster,
not much has changed
Next week marks the one-year anniversary of
Hurricane Katrina. To mark the occasion (and to
prove once and for all that he does care about black
people) George W. Bush will visit New Orleans on Monday.
What's left of it, anyway.
Sure, the reconstruction effort is chugging along. But to
say that it's really succeeding would be stretching the truth.
Take the levees, for example. The levees that failed last
August have been rebuilt, but the Army Corps of Engineers
says they wouldn't withstand a Category 5 hurricane like
Katrina. If another storm hit tomorrow, the city could be sub-
But arguing about the recovery misses the point. Bush
watched or rather, didn't watch; because he wasn't paying
attention as a major American city turned into a swamp.
More than 1,800 Americans died, and thousands more were
forced out of their homes, refugees in their own country.
New Orleans went from the First World to the Third World
in record time, and Bush presided over the whole thing.
One year later, not much has changed. It's not even that
voters are blaming the wrong people they don't seem to
be blaming anybody.
So we ask: Where's the outrage? Where's the account-
ability? Michael Chertoff is still running the Department of
Homeland Security. Ray Nagin is still mayor of New Orleans.
Half of the city is still under water, and the president has the
gall to stage a photo opportunity.
It's enough to make you think our elected officials don't
care about people, period.
S summer break was fun,
wasn't it? Lazing on
the poolside, hitting the
beach with friends, watching
"America's Got Talent" for 12
hours straight however
you spent your time off, we
hope you enjoyed it. Because
if you're graduating soon,
you might not do that again
for a long, long time.
That's right: American
workers, who already put in
longer hours and take fewer
days off than pretty much
anybody, are losing their
summer vacations, too.
According to a re-
cent study, 60 percent of
Americans had no-plans at
all for this summer the
highest percentage of stay-
at-homers in 28 years. Amid
high gas prices, stingy bosses
and the BlackBerry wireless
e-mail device, the family
fishing trip just didn't make
That's why Congress
which takes a four-
month break, starting every
October should mandate
paid vacations for American
workers. It's not as crazy as it
sounds. In fact, in most of the
industrialized world, it's the
norm. French workers get 25
days a year, by law. Italians
and Britons get 20. Even the
Japanese get 10. Don't we de-
serve some "me time" too?
If there's one thing that
unites liberal and con-
servative, Democrat and
Republican, frat boy and
hipsters, this is it: We all
like to go on vacation. So
let's do something about it.
Write your congressman.
Hell, write the president.

Signing Sharpton a mistake
When I first read that Al Sharpton was going to speak
here for $24,000 I naturally assumed that he would be
paying us. But then the coffee kicked in, and I realized that
we're paying him to preach at us in a flashy suit. I'm not
against him speaking, but seriously: $24,000 for that goof?
We got ripped off. Accent couldn't bargain him down to 50
bucks and a coupon for free dry cleaning?
Instead of paying Sharpton, Accent should give the mon-
ey to anyone who can answer three questions. One: Besides
his shameless self-promotion, what about Al Sharpton is so
"controversial?" Two: How can he claim to champion the
poor while at the same time doing commercials for preda-
tory lending firms? Finally, most importantly, three: What
exactly does Al Sharpton do for a living, anyway?
Harsh realities of college life
I hate to be the one to break this to Kristin Bjomsen, but

At Romanian dig site, student sweats for treasure
Editor's note: This is the second in a se-
ries of columns in which students narrate
working in an archaeological trench
in Romania, I was on my knees
for eight hours a day. We dug in
teaspoon-sized scoops so that we didn't miss
any small coins or bone fragments. My hands
ached, and dirt stuck to my sweaty skin.
Every once in a while, we had to chase off a
stray cow or horse.
My fellow excavators and I were digging
up the long-buried Roman city of Porolissum.
I had signed up for a foreign archaeologi-
cal field school with no training or experi-
ence. I was with 20 strangers in a country
where horses and buggies are as common
as automobiles, and where the language was
foreign to me, ready to spend a month doing
hard labor in the sweltering heat for fun.
I received no pay, no credit and no letter of
But we uncovered structures that proved
the city was bustling long after it was believed
We were briefed on the town before we
began digging. Porolissum was conquered by
the Romans in 106 A.D., and it defended the
Roman Empire at its very edge. Over time it
expanded into a civilian town.
The Romans withdrew in 271 A.D., and
many scholars believe that once they aban-
doned the area, everyone left, including the
indigenous people. But the Romanian direc-
tor of our dig, Alexandru Matei, believed
that people might have continued living there
We dug in Porolissum's forum, which is
similar to a present-day town center. It held
government buildings, shops and possibly
temples. These buildings were set up in a
rectangle around a central courtyard. We were
attempting to define the dimensions of the
forum and get a better understanding of life
Early in the dig, in the first trench that we
opened, we found a rubble layer composed of
stones and roof tiles, indicating that a building
had once stood there.
After we documented the rubble layer, we
removed it to see what was beneath. We found
what we were looking for: an intact wall that,
we guessed, outlined the courtyard of the
As we dug deeper, we found another wall
at a perfect right angle to the original wall.
In the comer of these two walls, we found
a pile of domestic animal bones. The building
rubble we found earlier must have constituted
the remains of the town butcher shop, which
would have been located along the courtyard
of the forum.
By analyzing those courtyard walls, we
eventually proved cor-
rect Matei's theory about
habitation after the Roman
withdrawal. It was obvi-
SS e ous that buildings had

other than their original
The walls of these buildings were not
at perfect right angles to the original walls,
which they would have been if the Romans
had built them. They were also built in a
The Romans used large stones and
mortar to build walls, but people from
later periods also used cement and small
bits of marble.
Finding these two types of walls con-
joined shows that the later people used the
Roman walls to help in their construction,
but changed the building plans for their
We also determined that most of the
trading was done locally, not with major
centers such as Rome or North Africa. This
was rare because almost all of the Roman
provinces traded solely
with Roman commerce
Throughout our dig, we
found many ceramics that,
according to past archeo-
logical findings, were fired
At one point, one of our
Romanian workers tossed a
piece of this ceramic into a
pile with a shovelful of dirt.
We saw the shard of
orange amid the flying
dirt, and we panicked.
Two of us climbed out of
the trench and raced over
to the pile to dig through it
and look for this artifact.
We found it, but from
then on we kept a closer eye
on the workers.

Cigs promote 'cool' image
M(i music Writer's Warning: Cigarettes
i cause lung cancer, heart disease,
- emphysema and may complicate
pregnancy. Side effects may include coolness
and increased indie cred.
Come on, let's face it. Despite the black-
ened lungs, yellow teeth and rank odor,
smoking cigarettes looks damn cool. I mean,
everyone's doing it. Well, not me. I swear,
Music and cigarettes is a marriage made
in heaven, or rather, and more appropriately,
hell. History lesson aside, cigarettes have
been the most popular form
of tobacco since the early 20th David
century. The cigarette became
coveted for its "smooth flavor,"
"soothing" nicotine and undeni-
able visual appeal, which was
bolstered by early musicians and
especially by classic Hollywood
cinema. Seriously, look mein the
eye and tell me that Humphrey
Bogart looks stupid smoking a cigarette.
See? It's impossible.
The same results will occur when you
look at a picture of Keith Richards. He
would actually look silly if he didn't have a
cigarette dangling from his lips. The reason
is simple. In our contemporary society, we
associate cigarettes as part and parcel of the
time when The Rolling Stones were actually
making good music, the time when what we
refer to as "classic rock" was just "rock."
Think about all the bands of that era:
The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Jimi
Hendrix, the Eagles, Queen, Boston. All
smokers. All well-loved. All influential.
This may help explain why many rock
bands today still smoke, even with the
deadly effects in mind.
Genre matters when it comes to smoking
and music. Take a rock 'n' roll musician -
say Jack White of The White Stripes and
give him a cigarette. He looks arty. Take a
pop -musician, say Britney Spears. Give her
a cigarette and she looks even trashier (check
the tabloids, people).
It's actually good that most mainstream
acts like Mrs. Federline are not visually
enhanced by cigarettes, for the sake of the
youth and other impressionable
Low types; however, it is comforting
to know that cigarettes still hold a
place in music today with under-
ground and indie music.
Now, I know there are some
naysayers among us, but The
S Strokes are going to be playing
the Stephen C. O'Connell Center
in September. If you're still not
convinced that smoking cigarettes looks
awesome, you obviously haven't been to a
And everyone knows that if there's any-
thing cooler than smoking prepackaged,
filtered cigarettes; it's got to be smoking
hand-rolled, unfiltered ones. I sure wouldn't
want to watch Iron & Wine's Sam Beam eat
soup, but I would love to see him lick that
Say what you will about them, cigarettes
and music are here to stay. Live fast, die
young, and leave behind a good-lookin'
corpse. Except that cigarettes kill you slowly
and age your body, but you know...
Play to premiere at Hipp
.By JENNIFER PFAFF
It's difficult enough to get most col-
lege students to think about class mate-
rial beyond the classroom, much less
crack open a textbook.
But Christafer Sobbing, 27, became so
interested in subjects he learned, he wrote
a play about it.
Sobbing, who serves as the associ-
ate director of development for the
Hippodrome Theatre, wrote the play
"Amanda Huxley" two years ago as an
undergrad at the University of Iowa.
The play will come to life onstage at
the Hippodrome Theatre only once: this
Monday at 8 p.m.
Although Sobbing was a theater major
in college, it was his sociology classes that
inspired him to write the play.
"I was taking sociology classes, study-
ing certain subjects the state of mind
in which people are able to commit
atrocious acts," he said. "I thought it'd
be interesting [to write a play] based on
Sobbing was motivated to write a
play after studying feelings of numbness
and what drives people to take drastic
measures to regain emotions. He said he
spent roughly seven months researching
the topic for his play, the ninth perfor-
mance he's directed.
In "Amanda Huxley," the titular char-
acter experiences feelings of numbness
and searches for ways to feel alive again.
When every attempt fails, her friend
Maddie manipulates her into committing
While the plot may revolve around
a murder story, Sobbing said that on a
grander scale, the story line is actually
about what drives people to commit hei-
nous acts, as well as the results that stem
from those actions.
"(In) each scene, something happens
that affects a bigger thing," Sobbing said.
"Each scene could be a short one-act play.
It has action, rising action, a problem, a
solution and an end to it."
Instead of auditioning actors for
"Amanda Huxley," Sobbing said he of-
fered roles to three performers he had
worked with before. The four-character
play features Christine Sellers, who plays
Huxley; Kellie Palladino as Maddie; and
Armando Acevedo, performing as the
characters Joshua and Nameless. The ac-
tors received scripts in May
Local and will have had roughly
Theater 22 rehearsals before open-
Although he's been
involved with theatrical performances
since he was 13, Sobbing said directing
is one of the more stressful aspects of
"It's all your fault people like it or
they don't like it," he said. "You have to
let your hands fall into the actors and
hope the designers understand exactly
what you're trying to do. And then it all
comes together, and it usually does, and
Until the curtain falls, Sobbing said
he's anxious about the performance, but
more so about the audience's reaction.
"I hope people talk about the subjects,
not just the play itself, but I hope it gets
people to think," he said. "I want people
to leave thinking about the subject that
was discussed there."
Tickets for "Amanda Huxley" are $5
and will -be on sale until Aug. 28. For
more information, 375-HIPP.

Fall promises sexy fun
going back to school is not all gloom
and doom. Okay, it's pretty close.
. But here are five sexy things to
look forward to as you buy your books and
miss the bus:
1. Dorms. Could they make it any
more convenient? Hooking up is just
a hop, skip and jump up the stairwell
and down the hall. I've even heard of
various RAs. getting in on the
action (but that's just between Maghan
us). Did I mention that there's
2. Free condoms. You've
read right, folks. Along with
free newspapers and joyrides
on the RTS, members of the
Gator Nation are showered
with free condoms, lube and
dental dams from GatorWell Health
Promotion Services. We're not talking
the boring stuff they've got fruity fla-
vors, psychedelic colors and extremely
convenient individually wrapped
samples (I speak from experience.) They
are super easy to acquire; keep your eyes
out for their "Health Hut," which pops
up all over campus on any given day of
3. The HPV vaccine. You should know
about this by now. As of just this week,
women can now get the vaccine at the
Student Health Care Center. I strongly en-
courage you to get this, mainly if you're a
virgin. At $150 for each of three required
stages, it might sound a little pricey, but
not only will your mom probably agree to
pay for it, cervical cancer down the. road
would be an even bigger drag.
4. Freshman. They're
IlcDowell young, beautiful and ready
to get crazy. Or at least I was.
If this is your first year in
college, I'm sure you haven't-
S missed the fact that your
S graduating class will now be
in the thousands, and that
(relatively) no one knows you.
The time is ripe for the debut
of your sexy new look. If you're return-
ing to the Swamp, you don't need me to
remind you how refreshing it is to see a
new face or two in the crowd. Kidding.
5. This column, of course! Look for
tales of love, sex and related sports ev-
ery Thursday in the Avenue section of
the Alligator. And don't forget to write
me at email@example.com for my highly
trained opinion on your latest adven-
tures and most heartfelt hang-ups.
Eateries offer great food
V ow that you've hopefully
learned your way around cam-
pus, perhaps it's time to explore
what off-campus dining has to offer.
For all the sushi lovers in the Swamp
(such as myself), Dragonfly Sushi &
Sake Co., 201 SE Second Ave.,
is the place to dine. If you're Nathar
not a fan of raw fish, no wor-
ries their cooked seafood
is still worth a shot. You have
probably never had anything
like a curving roll of .eel, crab
and cream cheese. The setting
is unique, as this restaurant
is located in a historic down-
For our future national champion-
ship-winning football team, you'can get
all the wings you want on Tuesdays at
Calico Jack's oyster bar, 3501 SW Second
Ave., for $9.95 (not that we need any
help crushing the Seminoles, but the
extra weight-is nice to have, especially
with its fair price). You don't need to
be a huge football player to enjoy this
place. Their big-screen TVs provide for
a great time when the Gators play away
games. They'll also be running specials
during away games, so keep an eye out
Feel like Cuban food? Then
Telaraja Virtually Cuban Internet Caf6,
2409 SW 13th St., is where you
can dine. They have two spa-
cious and comfortable dining
rooms. Pricing may seem a bit
painful for college budgets,
but that changes when you
see how much good food
you actually get. They serve
you a bowl of rice and beans to keep you
busy while they freshly prepare your

Fall semester promises bevy of exciting new albums
By TOM HARRIS
So far, 2006 has been a pretty solid year
for music. Releases from Herbert, Comets
on Fire, and Ghostface Killah have helped
cement their already excellent reputations,
while debuts from Beirut, Brightblack
Morning Light and Lily Allen have intro-
duced vital artists.
Despite all this, the fall is traditionally
the time of year when the highest concen-
tration of true classics are released to help
keep them fresh in the minds of critics writ-
ing end-of-year best-of lists. While it might
seem like a somewhat sly trick, it certainly
makes the fall a pretty fruitful time to get
into some new music.
Here are some of the upcoming season's
most promising releases:
Bob Dylan "Moder Times" (Aug.
29): This one comes out in
less than a week, and I'm
torn between preordering
it or standing outside Best
Buy waiting for the place to
open on Tuesday. Dylan's
last two albums, "Time
Out of Mind" and "Love and Theft," have
ranked among the best in his career, and
there's reason to believe "Modem Times"
might be a third latter-day masterwork.
The Black Keys "Magic Potion" (Sept.
12): The Black Keys are a great band that
keeps getting greater with each album.
Their most recent full-length, "Rubber
Factory," is an on-fire collection of blues-
rock swagger. And unlike that other blues-
worshipping, guitar-and-drums duo, these
guys are never anything less than entirely
sincere in their craft. Look forward to blis-
tering solos, hoarse, front porch shouting
and impeccable songwriting.
Nas "Hip-Hop is Dead" (Sept. 19):
Given that Nas has been partial to bom-
bast in the past (i.e. crucifying himself and
referring to himself as "God's son"), the
album title "Hip-Hop is
Dead" shouldn't come as
too much of a surprise.
Nevertheless, ever since
battle with Jay-Z, New
emcee has stepped back
Nas from much of his self-ag-
grandizement while still
retaining his righteous; literate sense of
fury. His most recent album, 2004's "Street's
Disciple," was a vastly underrated, kaleido-
scopic articulation of his anger and some
of his best work'since his staggeringly per-
fect debut, 1994's "Illmatic."
Akron/Family "Meek Warrior" (Sept.
25): Between their first self-titled album and
their split LP with Angels of Light, Akfrn/
Family's structurally intricate, ambitious
folk rock got a whole lot more intricate
and ambitious. With the help of renowned
free jazz drummer Hamid Drake, who has
played on sessions with legends like Don
Cherry and Pharaoh Sanders, there's a good
chance the Family might maintain their
ever-upward trajectory. -
Beck "The Information" (Oct. 3): Of
the two tracks on this upcoming release
available for preview on' Beck's Web site,
one, "Nausea," is promising. The other,
"Strange Apparition," is, unfortunately, not.
I've been a longtime fan of Beck, though,
so I'll probably shell out the cash for "The
Information." Here's to hoping Beck puts'
some teeth back into his music this time

Horschel's success continues
Billy Horschel continues to
impress at the -106th U.S. Amateur
The UF sophomore defeated
Ray Sheedy 3 and 2 Wednesday in
his first round of match play and
will advance to the second round
Horschel joined the likes of
Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and
Fred Couples on Tuesday when he
captured the individual medal at
the U.S. Amateur with a two-day
score of 5-under-par 138.
"Being in the company of the
guys who have won the medal at'
this tournament before is some-
thing special," Horschel said. "To
be the top guy out of 311 golfers
feels amazing. I'm not in shock, but
I'm overcome with joy.
"I didn't approach this tourna-
ment like I was happy to be here. I
practiced hard and worked on my
game. So far, it's paid off."
Horschel, who claimed medal-
ist honors at the 2006 NCAA West
Regional, is the first UF golfer to
earn the individual medal at the
U.S. Amateur since Brian Gay did
so in 1993 at Champions Golf Club
Horschel made headlines with
his first-round effort Monday after
posting an 18-hole tournament re-
cord score of 11-under-par 60. The
previous record score was 65 by
Marvin Giles IlI and Kurt Cox in
1968 and 1970, respectively.
Horschel's first-round score was
not only an 18-hole U.S. Amateur
record but also a United States Golf
Association championship record.
The previous mark was 62, set by
Loren Roberts at this year's U.S.
Senior Open and Christina Kim at
the 2001 U.S. Girls' Junior.
Horschel's overall score bet-
tered the score of his UF teammate,
Andres Echavarria, (147,4 over) by
9 strokes, and Horschel outshot his
coach, Buddy Alexander, (159, 16
over) by 21.
Echavarria's score was good
enough to qualify him for match
play, but he fell to Australia's
Bronson La'Cassie 3 and 2 in the
opening round. Alexander failed
Horschel's only collegiate win
came in the NCAA West Regional
last season, where he shot a 203 (-
13) in his three rounds, but he has
had nine top-10 finishes in 13 col-
His 10th place finish in the
NCAA championship was the best
of any of the Gators.

UF sophomore Billy Horschel has advanced to the second round of

Knee injury ends
* UF SOFTBALL STAR LINDSAY LITTLEJOHN
COULD NOT OVERCOME HER KNEE SURGERIES.
Promising sophomore pitcher Lindsay Littlejohn has de-
cided to leave the UF softball team after sustaining what has
become a career-ending knee injury.
Littlejohn, who has already gone through multiple
knee surgeries, might have been forced to undergo knee-
replacement surgery had she decided to make a comeback
"We feel very bad for Lindsay, the pain she had to endure
and the decision she had to make," Coach Tim Walton said.
"Lindsay's potential as an athlete was endless, but unfortu-
nately her softball career has ended too soon. Lindsay is and
always will be a Gator. We look forward
to following her personal successes in the
S years to come."
S Littlejohn, the ace of UF's pitching
S staff for much of last season, played in 19
games for the Gators in 2006, making 17
appearances in the pitching circle; includ-
ing 10 starts. She posted a9-4 record in her
Littlejohn 81.1 innings of work, boasting a team best
1.72 ERAbefore succumbing to the injury
midway through the season.
The loss of Littlejohn means the Gators, who finished last
season with a record of 43-25 and went 17-13 in Southeastern
Conference play,.will have to rely heavily on senior right-
hander Stacey Stevens (20-8, 2.42 ERA) and sophomore
Stacey Nelson (13-12, 2.22 ERA).
Littlejohn became the first freshman in school history to
pitch a no-hitter when she blanked Longwood 6-0 on Feb. 19.
She followed that up with a ope-hit shutout against Canisius
on March 12 and recorded a career-high nine strikeouts ver-
sus Seton Hall on March 3.
In high school, Littlejohn had a career record of 83-4 with
a 0.12 ERA. She went 21-1 with a 0.05 ERA her senior year.
Named to the SEC Freshman Honor Roll this spring; she re-
ceived a medical exemption front the NCAA and will remain
on scholarship to finish her education at UF, where she will
continue to pursue a degree in health-science education.
Former UF star Reche urges younger Caldwell brother not to give up
CALDWELL, from page 30
Nearly one year has passed since he siuf-
fered the leg injury that could have ended
his career. A missed blocking assignment
left Caldwell vulnerable on a kickoff return
against the Volunteers on Sep. 17. A Tennessee
player slammed into his upper right leg,
crushing the femur.
What ensued could have doomed his fu-
ture. Caldwell shed 20 pounds and almost lost
hope that he would be the same player again.
It is a sickening feeling that often envelops
players who suffer what could be career-
Enter wide receivers coach Billy Gonzales,
who worked overtime to lift his spirits.
"He got skinny and just went into a funk,"
Gonzales said. "The first part was getting his
mind right again. He was extremely down, so
you have to make sure you communicate with
him. The whole staff just did a great job keep-
ing him motivated and keeping him up."
Big brother and New England Patriots re-
ceiver Reche Caldwell helped as well. Reche,
a former UF star, insisted Caldwell not give
up, citing that a football player will always
face pitfalls: It's whether you stumble or keep
trucking that determines what happens next.
The little brother bought into the logic.
"I had heard stories about Reche, but I've
learned that he's all business," said UF coach
"That's my goal: to be the man
and make every play."
UF wide receiver
Urban Meyer, who chatted with Reche when
he visited with New England during June.
"Now I've seen that Bubba is all business."
The younger Caldwell affectionately
called "Bubba" by players and coaches -
looks as good as ever. Gonzales said he squats
more weight than he did prior to the injury.
And the receiver claims he is faster, running
a team-best 4.29 in the 40-yard dash this sum-
"I know he feels really good about himself
which makes us all feel good," Meyer said.
"He's a different guy."
Caldwell could be the difference-maker for
the spread offense.
Last season UF wanted to use him in the
backfield he scored an 18-yard touchdown
on a reverse in the Tennessee game and
send him deep. Now that plan is being trans-
ferred to 2006, when Caldwell will headline a
prolific group of receivers.
"That's my goal: to be the man and make
every play just to get the fans on their feet
and help this team win," he said. "I have the
feeling that I can do that and will do that be-
cause I've worked hard enough to be back to
where I used to be."
Meyer: Gators' players incapable of producing 12-yard gains will not play
BIG PLAYS, from pg. 30
have that this year."
UF boasts five receivers with 4.4
- or better 40-yard dash speed:
Caldwell, Cornelius, Harvin, Fayson
and Riley Cooper.
The coaching staff anticipates
capitalizing on this kind of talent in
the backfield as well. By alternating
its fastest players at the H-back posi-
tion and spacing them from sideline
to sideline, UF hopes receivers will
take a short play, make some moves
and convert it into a long gain.
"I know people want to hear that
you're going to throw it deep down
the field, but big
plays also come from
someone flipping the
ball to someone who
Football can make players
miss," offensive co-
ordinator Dan Mullen said. "We've
spent a lot of times with the guys
trying to figure out who can make
something happen once they get the
ball in their hands."
Meyer has grown obsessed with
- big plays. During the off-season, he
discovered an NFL study that em-
phasizes the importance of record-
ing a play of 12 yards or more. The
study found the following: Without
a big play during a drive, a team's
chances of scoring are 10 percent;
one big play boosts those odds to 50
percent; two big plays increase the
chances of scoring to 80 percent.
"We are giving the ball to people
that have a chance to go 12 yards,"
Meyer said. "If you have no chance,
you will not touch the ball."

Speedy Caldwell vows rebound
By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
Andre Caldwell is going to make a
lot of noise this season in airports.
The senior wide receiver will likely
infuriate the Transportation Security
Administration as much as oppos-
ing coaches because of the metal rod
inserted into his previously broken
"I'm going to set off [the detectors]
every time I get checked [for road
game trips] but oh well," Caldwell
Then, quickly making his football
agenda dear, he added: "But I am go-
ing to be on that plane."
"I want to prove to the whole
world that I'm back."
UF wide receiver
And one more thing: "I think I'm
faster than before," Caldwell said.
If you have never watched the
devastating play against Tennessee,
you wouldn'thave a cue.
Caldwell has been practicing like
any other player: sprinting, slashing,
juking and even falling. When he
was tackled two weeks ago for the
first time since his injury, he quickly
climbed back to his feet a moment
he hopes will typify the way his final
season at UF will unfold.
"I probably want this more than
anybody," Caldwell said. "I want to
prove to the whole world that I'm
back. A lot of people, they probably
forgot about me because I haven't
been out there in a long time. I just
want to prove everybody wrong and
show them that I'm back where I want

"We are excited about Matt returning
to Florida for his senior year," Coach Pat
McMahon said. "He feels that there are
team goals to be taken care of, and he has
made a tremendous commitment to the
Gators. I am very proud of Matt. He is an
outstanding person, and we look forward
to his continued leadership, both on and
off the field."
LaPorta's return means he will likely
break Brad Wilkerson's record and become
the school's all-time home-run leader.
He sits just one long ball short of tying
Wilkerson's mark of 55.

he still led the Gators with
14 homers and a .410 on-base percentage.
Over his, three-year collegiate career,

sixth on UF's career list with 154 RBI.
Before returning to Gainesville, LaPorta

Heisman hopeful Kenny Irons, who rushed for 1,293 yards and
13 touchdowns in 2005, is back to anchor the Tigers offense.
Quarterback Brandon Cox is in his second season since taking
over for Jason Campbell, making the Tigers one of the few teams
in the conference who don't have serious issues at the position.
Courtney Taylor is extremely talented and easily the team's best
receiver, but behind him is a lot of inexperience. Auburn returns
three starters on the offensive line, led by first-team AII-SEC pick
Tne Tigers retuiri six starters on a defense that was ranked just SAII6 '
in the conference last year but second in the red zone. Auburi also
led the SEC with 39 sacks in 12 games. Linebacker Will Herring is
the standout of the group, having started 36 consecutive games.
Herring, however, is in his first season at linebacker after being
switched over from free safety during spring practice. Auburn has
brought in defensive coordinator Will Muschamp to amplify the
team's defensive approach.

SWR Courtney Taylor, SR.
... Courtney Taylor has always been
able to talk a oig game.
The question now is whether his
talent on the field will equal his gift
S of gao.
S' Is he the best receiver in the SEC?
"Most definitely," Taylor said. "I'm
ew ;not going to shy away from it. I'm always ready to step
;- up'to the challenge."
How about in the country?
"Hey, I'll go there too," he said. "I feel like I'm the
best in the country."
Those are big statements from a player who caught
just 22 passes last season while nursing an ankle
injury and has had just one career 100-yard receiving
Still, Taylor showed so much potential he almost
considered leavingfor the NFL.
"He came to Auburn when we weren't a rolling ball -
a butcher knife, so to speak trying to make a name
for himself," Coach Tommy Tuberville said. "Courtney
is one of our leaders; he's one of the more outspoken
leaders of this team."
This does not mean Taylor is nalve.
"At the same time, I know I have to go out and prove
it," Taylor said. "Words are words, but actions speak
louder than words any day. I want to set the bar up
Auburn will ROCK because of Kenny Irons. With a solid offensive line, Irons should be good for
at least 100 yards every time he steps on the field.
Auburn will GET ROLLED because it plays 12 consecutive games. While the Tigers will benefit
from having eight games at home, they also don't have an off-week to give players a rest.

Much of Georgia's fan base has been shouting obscenities
following Coach Mark Richt's quarterback announcement
earlier this week. After successfully recruiting prized arm
Matthew Stafford ranked the No. 1 quarterback by
Rivals.com and No. 2 quarterback by Scout.com Richt has
appointed senior Joe Tereshinski as the starter and redshirt
freshman Joe Cox as his backup. Oh, and Georgia lost stud
tight end Leonard Pope to the NFL. One more thing: the
Bulldogs suffered from Dropped Pass Syndrome last season. It
should be a fun year in Athens.
Georgia sh-,oul be decent here, though nothing spectacular.
Its defensive line is anchored by beast end Quentin Moses,
but the tackle position is lacking. Linebacker should be OK -
with Jarvis Jackson, Tony Taylor and Brandon Miller. However,
the secondary could be problematic. Gone is All-Everything
safety Greg Blue. All-SEC cornerbacks Demario Minter and Tim
Jennings left as well.

Last season the 6-foot-5, 257-pound Moses racked up 20.5
tackles for loss and 11.5 sacks good for second in the SEC.
Moses has been selected a preseason First-Team All-American
by the following publications: TSN, Lindy's, Street and Smiths,
CBS Sportsline and Blue Ribbon. He is such a stellar player
that he shouldn't even be in college right now.
The senior surprised many by deciding to skip the NFL Draft
where Moses would have made a sure-fire first round pick.
There's more: This defensive end is well-rounded. He is a
two-time member of the SEC Academic Honor Roll.
Back to football, though. What's interesting is that Moses
does not necessarily consider himself the best defensive
end on the team. He has publicly stated that junior Charles
Johnson could hold that recognition by season's end.
However, Moses puts humility on the back burner on fall
Saturday. So is there anything he fears on the football field?

UF volleyball coach Mary Wise hopes to lead her Gators to a
16th consecutive SEC title.
By JOSH ARMSTRONG
If the Gators volleyball team is
feeling pressure prior to the start of
the 2006 season, it sure was hard to
notice as players belly flopped across
the practice floor.

practice with a rarely used "Follow

that players mimic each other.
It began lightly, but sophomore
Kelsey Bowers eventually busted out

"I used to think the best way to
prepare young girls for the sport of
volleyball ... was 'do gymnastics' and
'play catch,'" Wise said. "Now, I'm
thinking it's 'play shortstop' as well."
One opposing player sure to draw
UF's attention is 6-foot-7 Utah middle
blocker Emillie Toone, at least 4 inch-
es taller than any Gators player.
"Swing and duck," is the strategy
Wise gave UF regarding Toone.
"She's every bit of 6-foot-7 but
