GAINESVILLE CITY COMMISSION

Landlord costs may fall on renters


By DOMINICK TAO
Alligator Writer
dtao@alligator.org

Rents may rise as the city cracks down
on renters who violate city codes in
Gainesville neighborhoods.
In an effort to decrease code viola-
tions, such as over-occupancy and trash
or vehicles on the front lawn, Gainesville
city commissioners voted unanimously
Monday to more than double the cost of
landlord rental permits.
Commissioners said they expect the
financial burden to be passed to renters.
"It's not how much we're going up
on the landlord, it's how much we're
going up on the renters," said City
Commissioner Rick Bryant. "I don't think
we're hitting them hard enough."


The fee, which will rise from $84 to
$177, will go toward hiring more code
enforcement officers and automating
the code enforcement process to make it
easier to- fine renters
and landlords.
Complaints of
renters, especially
student renters, have
come before the City
Commission numer-
ous times.
Bryant In neighborhoods
like Forest Ridge,
there have been complaints that students
were causing the problems, but Melody
Marshal, president of the Forest Ridge
Neighborhood Association Inc., said that
isn't always the case.
"We have student renters who are

great neighbors," Marshal said.
Commissioner Craig Lowe said the
problem with renters violating city codes,
like keeping living room furniture and
pickup trucks on front lawns, is a city-
wide problem.
"Around the university you have is-
sues of over-occupancy and parking,"
said Thomas Saunders, head of com-
munity development. "In the east side of
town, the issue is maintenance."
Even though student-populated
neighborhoods around UF have been ste-
reotyped as violation-prone, commission-
ers were concerned about the fee's impact
on the city's less developed areas.
"I'm not worried about the rich stu-
dent-type renter," said Bryant, who was
more concerned with the fee's impact on
residents in East Gainesville.

First day



sees rise in



minorities

By ELIZABETH HILLAKER
Alligator Writer
ehillaker@alligator.org

If UF seemed more crowded than usual on
Wednesday, it was because 49,864 students were en-
rolled for the first day of classes 1,432 more than
last year.
Minority enrollment also increased on UF's first
day. Compared with last year's figures, more Hispanic,
Asian-American and black students
U F were signed up for the start of class-
Academics es, while Native-American enroll-
ment held steady at 0.3 percent.

The university as a whole is educating more stu-
dents, but its freshmen class shrank by about 500 stu-
dents this year to 6,760.
To counterbalance last Fall's bloated incoming
class, UF admitted fewer freshmen this year than it
has since 1991. The excess freshmen crammed their
dormitory rooms and lecture halls.
UF Provost Janie Fouke said this year's freshman
class is more manageable for the university.
"There will be fewer people standing in line and
unable to get into their classes," she said.
Black freshmen also showed in greater numbers
this Fall than their 2005 predecessors, as 901 black
students attended class the first day.
The increase could be attributed to a more welcom-
ing atmosphere at UF and more attention to minority-
student needs, Fouke said.
Last year, UF President Bernie Machen set up the
Florida Opportunity Scholars program, a scholarship
designed to attract a more diverse student body.
The scholarship was announced too late to increase
the number of minority students who applied to UF,
but it probably affected the amount of applicants who
decided to attend UF, Fouke said. About half of those
who apply to UF choose to come to the university.
In his State of the University Address on Thursday,
Machen said his scholarship should support about 400
students this year.
Manny Fernandez, chairman of the university's
Board of Trustees, wrote in an e-mail that UF's diver-
sity-recruitment efforts are off to "a pretty good start"
but still have "a long ways to go."
First-day enrollment figures for UF freshmen also
included 565 Asian Americans, 946 Hispanics and 20
Native Americans. White students make up 59.3 per-

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Students will vote on paper


BSU holds assembly


By JOEY CHINDAMO
Alligator Writer
jchindam6@alligator.org

UF students who vote in the upcoming Student
Government election will be using paper ballots to
choose their new leaders.
SG Supervisor of Elections Brian Aungst will
announce his decision to use optical scan paper bal-
lots for the Fall election at tonight's Student Senate
meeting. As the supervisor of elections, Aungst alone
determines the voting method for SG's election, which
will be held Sept. 26 and 27.
Optical scan ballots are similar to regular ones, but
are tallied by computers instead of by poll workers.
With this kind of ballot, Aungst said, "it will
maximize the secrecy and integrity of each vote while
providing a paper trail."
After Spring's SG election, when students voted
through computers stationed around UF's campus,
members of the Unite Party complained that some
votes were unaccounted for. But Aungst said that dur-
ing the Spring election, some students left polling sites
before voting even after they had already signed in.
Student Body President John Boyles charged
Aungst with researching voting methods for the
upcoming election. Those methods included intranet
voting, the computer-read paper ballots and "true"
online voting.


During the Spring election, more than 80 percent of
voters said they were in favor of "true" online voting,
which would allow students to vote from any com-
puter. But Aungst said that according to Florida law,
online voting is illegal.
"True intemet online voting is uncertified, which
means it's not allowed," Aungst said. "It has not been
approved by the secretary of state of Florida as an ap-
proved method of voting."
The state does not require SG
to follow state law for its elections,
but SG's own laws say that the
organization should "make every
effort to comply and follow" the
S state's standards for elections.
"I would not feel like I was do-
Boyles ing my best job if I deliberately vio-
lated Florida law," Aungst said.
In addition to choosing a new voting method,
Aungst also created a list of proposed polling loca-
tions for the upcoming election, but the SG Election
Commission must approve his list.
Because so many students voted in favor of
Internet voting in Spring, Aungst said he expects
some backlash toward his decision.
However, he said, the paper ballot system will
work best for students because it is the most secure
option and is unlikely to suffer system failures.

Liberal arts to make cuts


By ELIZABETH HILLAKER
Alligator Writer
ehillaker@alligator.org

To cope with the College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences' mul-
timillion dollar debt, admin-
istrators will enact changes in
hiring and classinstruction.
The money-saving mea-
sures frustrate some faculty
who think the college is already
poorly managed, while others
stoically prepare to weather
the storm, professors say.
Dean Neil Sullivan said the
changes will be slight.
"We're determined to keep
opportunities to students
open," Sullivan said. "We're
just going to be a little more
efficient."
For example, if a class typi-
cally draws 30 students and
only 15 have registered, the
college will wait until next se-
mester to offer it, he said.
The college, made up of
23 departments, aims to save
money by moving teaching
assistants to classes where


they are used more efficiently,
Sullivan said.
English professor Melvyn
New said that one in six up-
per-division literature classes
are already taught by teaching
assistants.
"There is not a quality
university in the country that
uses unsu-
** pervised
TAs in up-
.,T per division
.. .: courses," he
said.
:-. The col-
lege, which
Sullivan will take
about two
years to pay back its $3.5 mil-
lion deficit, will also recoup
funds by postponing faculty
hires in departments that serve
fewer students. In an average
year, 15 to 20 faculty members
leave the college, Sullivan
said.
New said revamping the
hiring process would be a
good thing after the English
department's "insane hiring


in the past few years," where
some areas are overstaffed
and,other areas essential to
an English education are un-
derstaffed. -Still, he said, the
faculty department's current
employees spend too much
time *ith administrative du-
ties and teach minimally.
"The TAs aren't going to
solve this problem," New said.
He suggested bringing back
retired faculty.
But due to poor leadership
and resistance to change, New
said the college won't improve
without a new dean.
"It is time for him to leave,"
he said. "The sooner, the bet-
ter."
Chemistry professor Philip
Brucat said he hadn't heard
any discontent among chem-
istry faculty about the way
things are run. Chemistry will
receive less money, but the
large department can absorb
the blow, he said.
"We're all crying into the
same towel," he said.

* NAVIGATORS GUIDE INTERNATIONAL
STUDENTS THROUGH FIRST WEEKS.

By ELIZABETH CASES
Alligator Contributing Writer

Some students from other countries yearn
to be Florida Gators, but for international stu-
dents studying in Gainesville, it's not always
easy adjusting to American life.
Jungmin Kim, 21, an international student
from South Korea, knew little English when
she came to UF to study chemical engineer-
ing. The language barrier and American life-
styles left her confused and uncertain..
"Everyone here has cars," she said. "Since
I have no car and I know little English, it's
hard to get around."
But UF's NaviGators International
Program seeks to help these students adjust
by pairing them with UF students who have
similar interests and majors.
This week, the program became known as
NaviGators because it became independent
from Phi Beta Delta, an international honor
society.
Annamarie Gabrenya, president of
NaviGators, said the program is designed to
impact both native students and those from
other countries.
"The NaviGators mentor program was
created not only to help acclimate exchange


students to Gainesville, but to encourage
an exchange of different cultures and ideas
between the American and international stu-
dents," Gabrenya said.
Most of the American students involved
with NaviGators have studied abroad in the
past and are interested in meeting people.
from different countries, Gabrenya said.
Sara Ciaverelli, a UF junior who traveled
abroad last Spring and recently became a
member of the NaviGators program, decided
to join after seeing how much fun her friend
had when she was paired with an interna-
tional student in Fall 2005.
Multicultural "I really like my buddy,
Affairs and I would have definitely
found it comforting and
fun to have had someone to turn to while I
was abroad in Italy last semester," Ciaverelli
said. "Now it is my job to answer any ques-
tions they may have, show them around
Gainesville, introduce them to my friends
and make sure they have an amazing abroad
experience."
NaviGators' more than 250 members
participate in weekly bar socials, ice cream
parties, tailgating at football games and trips
to Lake Wauburg and Universal Studio's
Islands of Adventure, Gabrenya said.
"The benefits of the program are reward-
ing," Ciaverelli said. "One gets to meet peo-
ple from all over the world while having fun
at the same time."

Wage woes

Tough times, low pay for

American workers
For UF students preparing to enter the job market,
we've got good news and bad news.
First, the good news. The American economy is
humming along. Interest rates are low, worker productiv-
ity has never been higher and since the 1960s, neither
have corporate profits. These days, big business is sitting
pretty.
Now for the bad news. Despite record-breaking profits,
American companies aren't paying their workers like they
used to. Inflation-adjusted wages have fallen two percent
since 2003, and wages as a share of the gross domestic
product are at an all-time low. In other words, as the eco-
nomic pie gets bigger and bigger, workers are taking home
a smaller slice.
But it gets worse. The top 1 percent of American wage
earners pocket more than 10 percent of all wages almost
double the take of the superrich 30 years ago.
Meanwhile, at the bottom of the economic ladder, times
are grim. The minimum wage's purchasing power what
you can actually buy with a paycheck from Taco Bell
- hasn't been this low in 51 years. The gap between rich
and poor is getting wider, and the middle class is hanging
on for dear life.
So what does this mean for college graduates? Two
words: grad school. Why leave the warm embrace of
academia before you absolutely have to? Besides, for
grad students, it's cool to be poor. In the real world, not
so much.
But sadly, every student has to graduate sometime.
When you do,_try to get a job as one of three things. One:
CEO of a Fortune 500 corporation. Two: professional
athlete. Three: Paris Hilton. Failing that, take the change
between your couch cushions and get yourself a pack of
ramen noodles. You're going to need it.


Bid Day madness


In case you missed it, the
infamous "running of the
bulls" drew quite a crowd
to Norman Field last Sunday.
More than 100 men
watched as UF's latest crop
of sorority girls celebrated
Bid Day in the traditional
way: by screaming, crying
and jumping frantically in
place. There were teary-eyed
promises of eternal friend-
ship, love and sisterhood.
Then the pledges dashed off
to their new houses to be
brutally hazed.
But this year, something
was missing. Instead of
publicly shaming the un-
lucky women who didn't get
their dream bids, the Office
of Sorority and Fraternity
Affairs allowed them to find
out in the privacy of Norman
Hall. Any breakdowns and
catfights were handled pri-


vately, by trained counselors.
Which is another way of
saying the whole thing was
a big disappointment.
But the Alligator asks,
why do we miss the Bid
Days of old?
Is it the humiliation we
crave? The full-body sob-
bing? The ritualized cruelty?
We don't know, and we
don't want to know. Those
feelings are buried deep
down inside us, in a place we
don't talk about at parties.
For now, we're just glad
that Bid Day is a bit more
humane than it once was.
After all, if you prick a so-
rority girl's finger, does she
not bleed? You bet she does.
She bleeds blue and orange.
So congratulations, ladies
- and to those who didn't
make it, better luck next
year.

Dropping test grades ruins education


ast week, UF students in many departments looked
at their class syllabi and were pleasantly surprised
to learn that two weeks before Thanksgiving, they
could stop thinking about their classes, learn only three-
quarters of the course material and still get an A.
Some readers already know what I'm talking about.
For the unaware, allow me to explain a problem that se-
riously damages the quality of education that UF offers,
and the reasons I consider it so rant-worthy.
I'm not exaggerating for journalistic flair, so bear
with me.
Many professors, in a fit of benevolence and humani-
tarian good will, have a "drop the lowest test grade"
policy. The idea is that even a hardworking, dedicated
student can have a bad test day. What these professors
choose to ignore is the virtually indomitable desire of
students to obtain the highest grade possible through
the least amount of work.
Now let's see how this high-grade, low-effort phi-
losophy affects a class with this policy.
Since tests in most classes are cumulative, it is un-
wise to drop the first one. Not only does that leave no
room for error on the later exams, but failing to master
the foundational information at the beginning of a class
makes slipups more likely to happen later in the semes-
ter. So dropping the first test is out.
Some students might leap immediately to the op-
Ifosite extreme working hard to ace the first three or
four tests so they can skip the final. But the truly bril-
liant and the truly lazy will find a better solution.
Let's say a class has four tests and a final. If a student
aces the first three tests, he can ignore everything in
the last quarter of the class a rd dc-op thp fourth exam.


Gerald Liles Then, since most professors focus
Speaking Out primarily on the earlier material
in their finals, the enterprising stu-
dent needs only to brush up a little
bit to squeeze out a low B. In fact, if he has averaged a
95 percent on his first three tests, a low C 73 percent!
- will still yield an A in the class.
This scenario is not hypothetical. It is the practice of
a large portion of the UF student body.
If you fail to see the significance of this phenomenon,
consider a different scenario: Your doctor only knows
three out of four symptoms of a disease. Or, even better,
your doctor knows all the symptoms of three out of four
diseases, and none of the symptoms of the one fourth
one the one killing off his patients. Not much of a
doctor. Likewise, dropping test grades doesn't make for
much of an education.
I don't anticipate this being a popular idea, but I
long for the abolition of this policy. The whole point
of a grading system and of college itself is aca-
demic accountability and certification of what a person
knows.
The way professors currently evaluate their students
at UF does not render their grades completely meaning-
less, but it's certainly a far cry from what grades should
mean. If a student receives an A in any course, it should
mean that he invested in the subject enough to exhaus-
tively learn the material.
As it stands, if my doctor were to brag about his
4.0 grade point average throughout medical school, I
would probably reply, "That's great ... but did you ever
drop the lowest test grade?"

Tuition hikes a big mistake


As a new student getting used to liv-
ing away from his parents, I had enough
on.my mind before I read about Bernie
Machen's proposal to increase under-
graduate tuition.
In last week's State of the University
address, Machen urged students to sup-
port his ongoing effort to make us pay
more, claiming the policy would also
benefit us. The audacity of such a state-
ment merits further consideration.
While it is not surprising that the
president would want more money to
fuel UF's bureaucracy, to get it at the
students' expense is certainly not in our
best interest. Machen argues that tuition
at UF is lower than at most state-run
universities, especially those ranked
highest by U.S. News & World Report.
But why is that a bad thing? For that
matter, why ruin a good thing? UF's
great value a good education at a
good price undoubtedly motivated
many students to attend.
A sudden, major tuition increase
would send students who aren't fortu-
nate enough to have rich parents in
other words, most students scram-
bling into the job market just to make
ends meet. But a great university needs
dedicated students, and more.time spent
working means less time studying.
A tuition increase would also hurt
those of us with Bright Futures scholar-
ships.
Currently, the Legislature sets tuition
rates and offsets them by providing
merit scholarships, like Bright Futures,
through the lottery fund. However, if
UF succeeds in wresting the power to
set tuition rates away from our elected
representatives, it is unreasonable to
expect the scholarships to continue pay-
ing full tuition. The Legislature would
never agree to pay UF through the lot-
tery fund whatever Machen decides to
charge they'd be granting UF a blank


Alan Tarrab check.
Speaking Out Instead, a
tuition increase
would probably
result in an out-of-pocket expense for
Bright Futures recipients making it
impossible to receive a free post-second-
ary education just by maintaining good
grades.
However, it is in the state's best in-
terest to allow students who show their
academic prowess the right to a free
post-secondary education regardless
of parental income. The Bright Futures
program encourages learning, and
Florida benefits from an intelligent, edu-
cated population that can compete in the
global economy.
Maybe you're still not convinced.
Maybe you believe that, despite the
negative aspects of a tuition increase,
UF really needs the money. Well, here's
a sobering fact: Machen doesn't even
plan on using all the additional funds to
improve the university.
Instead, he will funnel some of the
additional tuition money back to poor
students through need-based scholar-
ships. This will mean increased tuition
for middle-class families, who already
pay most of the taxes that support UF.
This seems like nothing more than
a cynical income-redistribution scheme
aimed at dividing the student body
to thwart what would otherwise be a
united effort to prevent tuition hikes.
But we should be smart enough
not to fall for it. Student Government
should lobby the Legislature to prevent
the tuition hike, and students should
write their legislators and vote for can-
didates who pledge to support low tu-
ition. Attending our beloved university
should be inexpensive for all of us who
had the privilege of being accepted.

Merit scholarships needed


Last Wednesday's announcement of
massive reductions in UF's National Merit
scholarships proves definitively that delu-
sions of grandeur continue in Tigert Hall.
For those of you who missed it, UF,
in its effort to topple Harvard and Yale
in. National Merit Scholar enrollees, has
offered scholarships totaling $24,000 to
National Merit Finalists. When combined
with Bright Futures, this means that a
National Merit Finalist enrolled at UF
spends money on food and nothing else.
While the scholarship is huge, let's
remember that these Finalists, in many
cases, wouldn't even apply to UF if not
for the money. For most of them, it simply
isn't necessary Duke, Georgia Tech or
another prestigious out-of-state university
will probably admit them.
Essentially, UF has been dangling a
huge wad of cash in these kids' faces, hop-
ing they'll bite. The strategy has worked.
Since it started, the program has placed
UF second in National Merit Scholar en-
rollment one spot behind Harvard. But
it appears that such success (and possibly
our recent ascension to No. 13 of public
universities) has bred overconfidence in
the UFHonors Program.
Suddenly our recruiters think these
finalists come to UF, to quote Provost
Janie Fouke, solely "because of the qual-
ity of the university." Fouke has also tried
to compare UF's spending on National
Merit Scholarships with that of other
schools like Florida State. Who is she kid-
ding? FSU only enrolled 10 National
Merit Scholars last year, compared with
'UF's 230 Scholars. Of course we should
spend more.
And while we're comparing ourselves
to FSU, let's consider that they're ranked
51st among public universities. I'll let you
decide for yourself if there's any connec-


Sam Miorelli tion.
Speaking Out When it comes
to admitting a new
freshman class,
National Merit Scholars are the cream of
the crop. For the time being, bribing them
with scholarships is the only shot UF has
at getting them to turn down the big-
name schools they're sure to be accepted
at. It hurts to say, but it's true.
Considering the administration's
recent fascination with Facebook, I'm
surprised our fearless leaders missed
the group called "Bribed by National
Merit (UF Chapter)." At 176 members, it
contains about 15 percent of UF's current
National Merit undergrads. Now what
was that about coming solely for the qual-
ity of the university?
If there's anything we know about
Bernie Machen and his administration, it's
that they value their ranking in magazines
above all else. How, then, can they pos-
sibly miss the negative effect that cutting
National Merit Scholarships will have on
UF's ability to recruit top freshmen?
If you don't think these people have
drunk the Kool-Aid, consider the discon-
nect between Machen's constant calls for
higher tuition and'the university's mis-
sion to recruit as many of the nation's top
freshmen as possible.
-But what am I thinking? All of these
considerations presume that our admin-
istration has a sober view of UF's stand-
ing in the eyes of prospective students.
Let's remember: We're 13th among public
universities, not first. So get a grip, Bemie.
You're no more likely to wow a National
Merit Scholar with $1,250 a year than you
are to convince your students to throw
beer-free parties.

Don't repeat Iraq mistakes in Iran
I am shocked that the American public is tolerating
a conversation about potential military strikes on Iran.
Over and over again, we are told by our media and our
government that the Iranian president is a tyrant and that
Iran is developing weapons of mass destruction. These
are exactly the same lies that we were told about Iraq. For
the good of our nation, I hope the American public will
not be duped a second time.

Evolution is real science
This is a response to Corey Locke's Friday letter con-
cerning evolution. I want to start by saying to Mr. Locke
that I have no problem with the teaching of "intelligent
design," as long as it is taught in the appropriate venue
- a philosophy or religion class. But it is not science.
"Intelligent design" cannot be tested or disproved, one
of the most basic foundations of science. As for evolution
itself, it should be understood that evolution is a visible
process. You can see it happening in your own lifetime
- and even in shorter amounts of time, for creatures such
as bacteria.
Darwin's theory of natural selection is a well-respected
scientific theory, though it is by no means the only one
regarding the mechanisms of evolution. But If Mr. Locke
really believes evolution is "science fiction," then I sug-


gest he stop getting revaccinated. If viruses and bacteria
don't evolve, then there's really no need to protect your-
self against new strains. Now that's what I call natural
selection.

"Intelligent design" is religion by another name
I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news to Corey
Locke, but evolutionary biology is, in fact, "real science."
Darwin's theory may have been shocking and controver-
sial back when Darwin first came up with it, but after
over a hundred years of empirical data-gathering, the
worldwide scientific community has accepted and further
shaped Darwin's basic premises. .
"Intelligent design," on the other hand, is not a science
at all, because it begins from a premise that a sort of God
exists a premise that is not provable through scientific
methods. In fact, the entire concept of faith hinges on that.
If you can "prove" that God exists, then what's the point
of having faith at all? Religion and science don't play by
the same rules.
Yes, evolution is ultimately only a theory. But just like
that other major theory gravity there's a mountain
of evidence to support its basic ideas, and the bulk of real,
working scientists accept it. The "theory" of intelligent
design is a thinly veiled sham concocted by religious cru-
saders who are intent on rubbing their very limited un-


derstanding of the world in everyone else's faces. Thank
God most of us have enough common sense to know our
limits.

Access to Plan B cannot be denied
I was pleased to read that after more than two years
of putting politics before science, the Food and Drug
Administration approved the morning-after pill for over-
the-counter sales to women over 18.
But while federal approval is a vital step in increasing
accessibility to emergency contraception, certain prob-
lems remain.
Since the original approval of the Plan B contraceptive,
timely access has been compromised by pharmacists re-
fusing to fill valid prescriptions because of their personal
beliefs. For women concerned about preventing preg-
nancy, this has meant delayed care if not an outright
denial of care.
If over-the-counter access to emergency contraception
is to make a real difference in the lives of women, then
pharmacies, health centers, doctors' offices and hospitals
must keep Plan B readily available and guarantee that
women get the health care they need without discrimi-
nation or delay.

* SWAMP HAS YET TO PICK A
CANDIDATE FOR NO. 2 POST.

By JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Writer
jdasilva@alligator.org

Two Student Government parties
have announced vice presidential
candidates for the upcoming elec-
tion, leaving the Swamp Party as
the only organization, without a
contender for SG's No. 2 spot.
The Action Party announced
UF senior Chris Chase as its vice
presidential candidate Monday,
while the Pants Party named Bruce
Haupt, also a senior, as its candi-
date last week.
Chase .said he is focusing his
campaign for vice president on
increasing student participation in
SG.
"I don't want this campaign to be
a one-way conversation, but rather a
two-way dialogue that incorporates
students' wishes in every aspect of
SG," Chase said.
Action Party leader Thomas
Jardon said his party decided to
run Chase during the election,.
which will be held Sept. 26 and 27,
because of his experience in SG and


other student organizations.
Chase served as former Student
Body Vice President Joyce Medina's
chief of staff before resigning in
2005.
But the Swamp Party, which con-
trols SG's executive branch, is still
without a candidate for the post.
Party leader Keith Hardwick said
Swamp is "work-
Student ing on running
the most quali-
fied person pos-
sible," and Student Body President
John Boyles wrote in an e-mail that
Swamp would be announcing its
pick within the next week.
The vice president's office was
vacated when Lydia Washington
stepped down from her post in July
for academic reasons. Boyles named
UF law student Arturo Armand as
his interim vice president Sunday
evening.
Armand will hold office for less
than a month, unless the Swamp
Party decides to run him as its
candidate for a permanent execu-
tive slot.
"I'd have to say if [the candidate
is] not Arturo, then it's some kind of
crafty scheming," said Haupt, the
Pants Party candidate. "That John
Boyles is a mastermind."

Student learns to love German football overseas


Editor's note: This is the fourth
in a series of columns in which
students narrate their summer
experiences.

I visited Germany this sum-
mer to study statistics, and I was
sucked into a red, yellow and
black vortex of World Cup zeal.
I watched my first game at
the Alando, a club in the city of
Osnabriick in north Germany. The
owners had converted the park-
ing lot into a temporary viewing
arena for the Weltmeisterschaft
(World Cup). Fans crowded un-
der a canopy that covered a huge
TV, multiple bars with smaller
TVs and a small swimming pool.
Even though it was only a
first-round match, fans were go-
ing wild. With each goal, there
was a roar of celebration and a
chorus of singing and chanting.
When the German team won,
fully clothed fans jumped into
the pool and others waved flags
to joyous singing.
We pushed through clusters
of Germans to see the fussball
match, the only thing that we
could understand. With no
knowledge of the language or the
German fervor for soccer, we felt


like outsiders.
Every time the Germans won,
fans rushed into the streets. The
bedlam that followed every
victory looked like University
Avenue after the Gators' 2006
NCAA men's basketball champi-
onship win.
That frenzy would be calmed
before the end of my stay, but in
those first weeks I got caught up
in the atmosphere. Once I over-
came my confusion, I watched
Germany's games as though they
were my own team's.
In fact, the longest string of
German I learned during my
six-week stay was a song, writ-
ten this year, encouraging the
German Nationalmannschaft to
bring the World
Cup home in
2006. "With
their hearts in
My Summer their hands /
:: And passion
in their legs
/ They'll bring the World Cup
home," the chorus went.
The wildest day by far was
the day of the semi-final game in
Dortmund.
Almost the entire study-
abroad group caught a train into


a f B": -.'.**,

Special to the Alligator
UF senior Erin Trowbridge joined crowds of zealous fans to watch World Cup soccer games at the Alando
Arena in Osnabrick. She was studying statistics abroad when she caught football fever.


Dortmund in the early afternoon
to watch the game in an indoor
arena, across the street from the
stadium where it was played.
It was very strange to be an
American fan of German soccer
in Dortmund that day.
We had all pledged our alle-
giance to the German team, so we
wore our colors proudly.
But we forgot that, at home, it
was a holiday. After a few hours
in Dortmund, we saw another
American waving a flag, and
we wished him a happy Fourth
of July.
The fans in the arena watched
intently as the game's regulation
time, and then the first 15 min-
utes of overtime, ended without
a goal. The entire crowd held its
breath and believed the game
would go into penalty kicks.
Then Italy turned the tables
and scored a goal just before the


second overtime expired. For a
brief moment, it appeared as if
the Germans would miraculously
match this goal, but the Italians
regained control and scored an-
other.
With few exceptions, everyone-
was crying. German fans were on
their knees, weeping, and Italians
smiled under teary cheeks.
A crowd of somber Germans
left the arena, punctuated by the
occasional celebrating throng of
Italians. The riot squads stood
by their vans, watchful, but un-
moving.
They looked bored.
When, incredibly, our group
was reunited, a student told us
there were riot barricades keep-
ing people out of the train sta-
tion.
The student advised us to wait
an hour for the next train.
So we sat down on the grass


among a horde of fans across
the street from the train station.
Some fell asleep, some ventured
back into town to find food or a
bathroom. I went back to town.
There we stood in line near
a woman who, after hearing us
speak, asked us why we wore
German colors. We gave a pat
answer, but we couldn't describe
the pride we felt representing the
foreign team.
The next day, the pain of
the loss had already begun to
subside. While touring a power
plant, one of the girls started
singing the song again.
We told her she couldn't sing
it because it listed 2006 among
Germany's championship wins.
After a few minutes of silence,
she started to sing again, replac-
ing 2006 with 2010.

Hispanics' hearty health mystifies social scientists


I ETHNIC GROUP DEFIES NORMS,
COINED'THE HISPANIC PARADOX.'

THE LOS ANGELES TIMES

Los Angeles Thousands of Hispanic
patients stream though the East Los Angeles
practice of Dr. Hector Flores and his partners
each year.
The older ones go to the family practice
with arthritis and hypertension, the younger
ones with diabetes and asthma.
What surprises Flores, however, is not how
sick they are, but how sick they aren't.
Overall, Flores said, his patients are much
healthier than one would expect given their
low levels of income and education, factors
epidemiologists attribute to poor health.
"You can predict in the African-American
population, for example, a high infant mortal-


ity rate," he said recently, "so we would think
a (similarly) poor minority would have the
same health outcomes."
"But they don't. They're not there," he said,
referring to outcomes among Hispanics.
Why Hispanics are not sicker a phenom-
enon known to health experts as the Hispanic
paradox is puzzling to public health ex-
perts, given the link between disadvantage
and high disease and mortality rates.
In overall mortality rates and infant mortal-
ity rates, two standard measures of a popula-
tion's health, Hispanics' numbers approach
and sometimes surpass those of whites.
Nationally in 2003, Hispanics' mortal-
ity rate was 621, 25 percent less than whites'
and 43 percent less than blacks', according to
reports published by the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention.
Hispanics' infant mortality rates reflect
a similar pattern. The national rate was 5.7,


about the same as whites' and 58 percent less
than blacks'.
"It violates one of the most predictable
patterns we see in most areas of the world
and for most diseases," said Dr. Paul Simon,
chief epidemiologist for the Public Health
Department.
"The question is, 'What is the Latino popu-
lation doing right?'"
The reasons for the paradox are a matter of
some debate. Some scholars attribute it to im-
migration, which may draw selectively from
the ranks of the hale and hardy. Another pos-
sibility is that many immigrants return to their
home countries when seriously ill, skewing
mortality statistics in this country.
But researchers are suggesting that such
factors as diet, lifestyle choices and strong so-
cial support networks are the key to Hispanics'
better-than-expected health.
. They're not taking some secret Aztec herb


they didn't tell you about," said David Hayes-
Bautista, an early observer of the Hispanic par-
adox who directs the University of California,
Los Angeles, Medical School's Center for the
Study of Latino Health and Culture.
It's worth figuring out what is making the
difference, he added, because "we could all be
better off for it."
As the immigration debate heats up and
the cost of health care soars, the phenomenon
is attracting attention from social scientists and
public health officials.
Kyriakos Markides, who in 1986 coined
the term "Hispanic epidemiological paradox,"
described scholars' shift as remarkable.
"Nobody talked about it then," said
Markides, a professor of socio-medical scienc-
es at the University of Texas Medical Branch,
speaking of a generation ago. "Now, it's the
-leading theme in the health of the Hispanic
population in the United States."

cent of the freshman class.with 4,009 students,
and women outnumber men in that class at 53.1
percent.
Official enrollment numbers will not be tal-
lied until after the drop/add period, said UF
spokesman Steve Orlando.
Although administrators say UF still has a
long way to go as it works to increase minority
enrollment, the university has many multicul-
tural organizations that encourage diversity on
campus.
Dennis Ngin, president of the Asian American
Student Union, said UF students should learn
about cultures other than their own.
"For our campus to appreciate diversity,
people need to break out of their comfort zones
and experience other cultures," Ngin said.
He said he plans to attend other multicul-
tural organizations' events to promote diversity
awareness. The Asian American Student Union
wants to not only attract Asian-American fresh-
men but also students who are interested in
Asian culture, he said.
Fouke said more cross-cultural interaction
and higher minority enrollment will improve
UF.
"It's my experience that a more diverse group
of folks comes up with a better solution to prob-
lems," she said. "That's the overriding asset to
having a diverse campus."

TRANSPORTATION

After waiting for Sunday service, riders now wait on bus


By BRYNN HUYSMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Students were able to ride the bus to city
locations on a Sunday for the first time this
week.
Gainesville's Regional Transit System
kicked off its Sunday bus service with
nine new routes through campus and
downtown, running hourly to destina-
tions such as Butler Plaza, Shands at UF,
the Downtown Plaza, The Oaks Mall and
Lexington Crossing.
Jesus Gomez, transit director, said seven
new drivers have been hired to work the
nine routes on Sundays.
Adding the Sunday routes will cost more
than $300,000 for the entire year, he said.


"The cost is being split evenly be-
tween the University of Florida's Student
Government and the Florida Department
of Transportation," Gomez said.
Some UF students took advantage of the
additional bus services Sunday.
Chinelo Ubaka, a psychology senior, used
the bus Sunday to go downtown.
"I don't have a car," she said. "I needed
-to get out of the house."
Ubaka said the only downfall to the
Sunday service is that the buses come infre-
quently. But Ubaka said she will continue
to use the bus system until she gets a car.
Another student, UF freshman Daniel
Ezzo, also said he disliked the wait. He
does not have a car and says he "relies
on buses a lot." But after waiting almost


30 minutes, he gave up on waiting for the
Route 403 bus, which goes to Lexington
Crossing. .
Ed Jennings Jr., state representative
"The idea that RTS is expanding is
a wonderful thing, particularly for
East Gainesville."
Ed Jennings Jr.
State Representative for District 23

for District 23, rode the bus Sunday and
said "the idea that RTS is expanding is
a wonderful thing, particularly for East
Gainesville."
Jennings, a Gainesville native and for-
mer city commissioner, said the new sched-


ule will be beneficial for students going to
campus and people going to church or the
grocery store. Jennings said he believes
more people will use RTS buses after they
realize Sunday service is now available.
The city buses run from about 10 a.m.
to 5 p.m. Sunday, according to RTS's Web
site.
Eustache Mine, operations manager,
said the new routes worked well and RTS
was getting "very positive feedback."
Also, RTS increased the service on an on-
campus route, the UF East/West Circulator.
It now runs every half hour from 10 a.m.
to 2 p.m. and every 15 minutes from 2 p.m.
until midnight.

Competition gets fierce as firefighters head to nationals


* FOUR QUALIFY IN 'SUPER
BOWL OF FIREFIGHTING.'

By ADAM AMIR
Alligator Contributing Writer

Four local firefighters will heat
up the competition in Atlanta this
October in the National Firefighter
Combat Challenge, a seven-part ob-
stacle course based on fire rescue.
The competitors qualified
Saturday at the regional tourna-
ment at The Oaks Mall, and they
are now rigorously preparing for the
national level.


"We all do a lot of weight lifting
at the station, but I try to.gear my
training a lot toward speed," said Lt.
Drew Dabney, of Alachua County
Fire Rescue. "It works every muscle
in your body"
In the over-40 division, firefight-
ers Gary Law and Drew Dabney
qualified with times less than two
and a half minutes. Pat Hartley and
Gainesville Fire Chief Bill Northcutt
qualified with a time less than four
minutes in the over-50 division.
The competition is not just a
show of athleticism. Firefighters also,
use it to keep it shape, train for the
event and set fitness goals.


"Last year I did it in two min-
utes, 33 seconds, but I kept on
training and got better every time,"
said Adam Hinton, Gainesville Fire
Rescue driver and medic. "Fighting-
fires is a lot like this; it changed the
way I deal with
Around fires."
S-.:i*b;e -'. The national
course will be the
same as Saturday's, which about 100
spectators attended.
On Saturday, competitors ran
up a five-story tower that imitates a
high-rise building and pulled a fire
hose to the top. Then they ran down
the stairs and to the next station,


where they moved a 100-pound
steel beam with a sledgehammer,.
simulating forced entry into a roof.
After running around hydrants
in an event called Serpentine, they
carried "victims" to the finish line.
"Dragging the [170 pound] res-
cue dummy is the hardest for me
because it's at the end of the course,"
Dabney said. "Once I get there I'm
spent."
In what ESPN calls "the toughest
two minutes in sports," competitors
had to run the course while wearing
an up to 80-pound oxygen mask and
fire suit, challenge officials said.
"Teams from across Florida and


even as far as North Carolina com-
peted for bragging rights and an
opportunity to qualify," said Kim
Berryman-Dages, Gainesville Fire
Rescue district chief.
The competition was tough, even
for veteran teams, but the crowd
supported them all the way. Even
when one firefighter collapsed un-
der the weight of his rescue dummy,
the applause roared.
Strapping on miniature fire suits,
children aged 2 to 12 vied for cheers
in the kids' competition.
"Everybody is into this," Dabney
said. "It's like the Super Bowl of
firefighting."

ucation magazine used the most recent data
from the U.S. Department of Education to
rank the top 100 minority graduate degree
producing U.S. institutions in the categories
of master's, doctoral and first professional
degrees awarded.
UF also placed ninth out of 43 institu-
tions for total minority doctorates conferred

"It's certainly good to be recognized,
but at the same time we have to keep im-
proving the most important parts of our
mission namely providing a solid educa- -
tion and doing outstanding research,"
Machen said.

Vet student develops computer-based study tool in a flash


At 33, junior veterinary student Mary
Gardner is fast becoming an entrepreneur,
marketing a computer-driven flash card
study program to students not just at the
University of Florida, but all over the world.
Gardner, with help from her computer
programmer father and webmaster brother,
developed PC FlashCards, a software pack-
age that enables studerits to create flash
cards on their personal computers. Students
can organize the cards by subject, attach
pictures, test themselves, print out cards on
paper and swap cards between friends.
For example, animal science majors
might quiz themselves with cards that ask
questions like "What is a nutrient?" or
"What type of cattle is this?"
"If you have a PDA, you can put the
cards on the PDA version of the software to
study away from your PC," Gardner said.
Nearly the entire sophomore veterinary
class has purchased the program, which sells
for $29.95. One of PC FlashCards' key sell-
ing points is that a portion of the proceeds
from each sale goes to a student club, class

UF tops $500 million
in sponsored research
The University of Florida received a
record $518.8 million in research funding
in the fiscal year that ended June 30, 2006,
up 5 percent from $494 million in 2005.
The jump mainly comes from a $13.4
million increase in funding from the Na-
tional Institutes of Health. Overall, federal
funding rose to $324.4 million. Other
major federal sponsors include the National
Science Foundation, $39.6 million; the
U.S. Department of Agriculture, $33.3
million; and the Department of Defense,
$23.1 million.
UF to have key role
in Burnham Institute
Orlando will be the Florida site of the
Burnham Institute for Medical Research,
according to an announcement last week in
Tallahassee. The announcement stems from
several months of work to bring Burnham
to the state, with the University of Florida
playing a key role in the process.
Though many of the details remain to be
worked out, UF officials said the collabora-
tion is expected to include the construction
of a UF research facility on the property.
that Burnham will also occupy. The build-
ing likely will be about 50,000 square feet.

"My class has earned more than $500
just from sales," Gardner said. "It's been
our best fundraising event to date. There is
no overhead and no inventory, and we've
learned while we made the cards."
The flash card business began before
Gardner was able to apply for veterinary
school, when she was completing prereq-
uisites and studying a lot. "I was making
handwritten flash cards, and I'd
have stacks of them in my house.
I thought, this is ridiculous, there.

So Gardner drew up specs,
conceptualized the product and
asked her father to help write the

prototype. Her brother agreed to
build a Web site, so soon all three
family members were involved.

2006 FOOTBALL PREVIEW

UF O-line looks to overcome depth woes, injuries


By ANTONIO GONZALEZ
Alligator Staff Writer.
agonzalez@alligator.org
Heading into fall practice, the offensive
line was one of the biggest concerns for
the Gators. With the season set to kick off
Saturday, it still is.
Coach Urban Meyer said he hasn't seen
the productivity and progress from the of-
fensive line like he had hoped.
"There are several holes in our program
right now," Meyer said. "Most notable
would be our offensive line."
The Gators lost four seniors from last
year's offensive line. And the only return-
ing starter, senior Steve Rissler, has shifted
from guard to center.
Then there's the slew of injuries.
Starting right guard Ronnie Wilson
fractured his left ankle during fall camp
and will likely miss the first two games as
he recovers.
Freshman Maurice Hurt, who has im-
pressed the coaching staff since arriving in
Gainesville this spring, sprained his right
knee and underwent arthroscopic surgery.
However, Hurt has already returned and
will play Saturday against Southern Miss.


But the injuries and lack of returning
starters don't necessarily mean the Gators
offensive line will regress.
Last year's senior-laden line was
regarded as one of the best in the
Southeastern .Conference during train-
ing camp. However, its players would
struggle with Meyer's complex zone and
surrender 35 sacks.
So there's no telling how good or bad
this year's group will perform.
Assistant coach Steve Addazio, who
oversees tackles and tight ends, said the
new squad has some advantages over last
season's.
"While last year we had experience as
far as game starts, we had less experience
in terms of knowing the system," Addazio
said. "So in some respects we're in a better
Position this year."
Addazio noted that the Gators were
still inputting new plays halfway through
last season, whereas this year, almost ev-
erything was in by the start of fall camp.
Junior Phil Trautwein will be respon-
sible for Chris Leak's blindside at left
tackle.
If sophomore Jim Tartt can avoid inju-
ries.- a sore shoulder sidelined-him for


much of fall practice he will start at left
guard. If Tartt isn't healthy, expect Hurt to
fill the void.
Right guard is reserved for Wilson
when he returns from ankle surgery. For
now, junior Drew Miller will replace him.
Junior Carlton Medder will get the
nod at right tackle. When Wilson returns,
Miller will move back to right tackle.
But the offensive line's concerns extend
beyond the starters.
"There are several holes in our
program right now. Most notable
would be our offensive line."
Urban Meyer
UF football coach

The Gators don't have much depth at
the position and will have to rely on fresh-
men like Wilson, Hurt and Eddie Haupt.
"A lot of guys are young and they don't
know much," Rissler said. "But they're ea-
ger to learn and that's good, because we're
going to need them." -
Whether system experience will su-
persede game experience has yet to be


determined. The demeanor of the unit,
however, seems to have changed.
"We're a hungry group of guys," Rissler
said. "We all just want to win, and win
now. Everybody knows we don't have a
lot of experience. We just want to go out
there and prove everybody wrong."

HARRIS SPEAKS: Speaking publicly for the
first time in half a year, defensive tackle
Steven Harris said the only reason Meyer
let him back onto the team was so he could
graduate and support his three children.
"He told me if I came back that I prob-
ably wouldn't play in one game," Harris
said. "But I'm coming back because of
my children, so that he wouldn't take my
scholarship [away] so that I would be able
to graduate just for my children."
Harris said he is the father of a 2-
year-old daughter and two 4-month-old
sons who are mothered by two different
women.
Meyer dismissed Harris for most of
spring practice due to personal reasons.
Meyer has not decided whether' to start
Harris or Joe Cohen on Saturday.

Emotional Harvin addresses team, vows to bring championship to UF


HARVI N, from page 24

and UF's coaching staff that may have
swayed him away from USC.
"That's one of the reasons I came here,"
Harvin said. "I feel like they love their play-
ers, and that was the difference from every
other [school]. I could have gone to USC
with a great offense, but I really felt like these
coaches cared about me. Really, in my opin-
ion, I wouldn't have kept recruiting me after


hearing all that stuff."

The Rebirth
After calling his prep turmoil a "blessing in
disguise," Harvin made good on his promise
to arrive on campus bigger, stronger and faster
than he had ever been.
Despite battling a hip flexor through train-
ing camp and missing a good chunk of prac-
tice, Harvin has still put himself in a position
to be the No. 4 receiver on the team behind
Dallas Baker, Jemalle Cornelius and Andre


Caldwell.
Not that the decision to sit out of practice
was his own.
Harvin was also the first freshman in his
class to have the black stripe removed from
his practice helmet, signifying that he was a
part of the team. .
Cornelius, Harvin's big brother on the
team, tore the stripe off.
"He's a good kid," Cornelius said. "He's
been working really hard, not really talking
much but just coming out and doing what


he's supposed to do."
The moment proved so poignant for
Harvin that he choked up when he was given
the chance to address the team.
"I just said that this is my hometown now,"
Harvin said. "My mom and everybody is
moving down here now, so this is my new
hometown, and I told them I'm going to help
them win a championship."
Standing among teammates with sweat
trickling down his face, Harvin knew he fi-
nally belonged once again.


Offensive Outlook
SIn just his second season at the helm, Ed Orgeron's team is installing a
completely new offense undernew offensive coordinator Dan Werner, who
came from Miami. How the Rebels do will depend on Brent Schaeffer, who.
transferred from College of The Sequoias after playing at Tennessee in 2004.
SEven with Schaeffer, the Rebels could struggle to score points due to a lack of
polished skill players. One of Mississippi's starting receivers is a true freshman,
the team's top tight end switched to the position midway through last season
Sand the projected starting running back, BenJarvus Green-Ellis, sat out last year
after transferring from Indiana.

Defensive Outlook
Oirg r.rr. rc,,en a defensive coach his entire career, and he has a stud in
irn.neD.: ,-r ,rr,: K Willis. A near-unanimous first team All-SEC pick, Willis is the
.: rrerc:.~- .:;r rre Rebels multiple 4-3 defensive scheme, one that allowed
him to rack up 128 total tackles in 2005, most in the conference. The entire
front four has to be replaced, but it should be a good group. The secondary
surrendered just 12 touchdowns last season and has a solid pair of corners in
.Trumaine McBride and Nate Banks.

Impact Player Spotlight

.QB Brent Schaeffer JR.
It's not often that on National Signing
Day a coach declares a newcomer who has
never played with his team as the starting
quarterback.
S But Ed Orgeron took that step in February,
S '.i namingjunior college transfer and former
Tennessee Vol Brent Schaeffer his starter.
"It was a no-brainer that Brent was going to
be [the starter]; he's the only quarterback with SEC experience,"
Orgeron said. "I just thought it was something I told him, I do it
during recruiting, and I felt like it was necessary to do it."
Naming Schaeffer the starter, however, was only half the battle.
Despite throwing for 40 touchdowns and running for 10 more at
the College of the Sequoias last year, it was unclear throughout
the summer whether the South Florida native would qualify
academically.
After passing one final class, Schaeffer made his way to Oxford
the night before the first practice and was on the-field the next
day.
An athletic left-hander, Schaeffer has the ability to make plays
with both his arm and his legs.
"He's like defending 12 guys on offensee" Orgeron said.
"Sometimes there's nothing there, he can make a big play for
you. He's a play-maker."


Mississippi will ROCK because of Schaeffer and a highly regarded recruiting class. The transfer provides crucial
playmaking ability. while a good crop of freshmen could pump some much-needed energy into tne Rebels.
Mississippi will GET ROLLED because of inexperience at the skill positions. Only one receiver has ever caught a
collegiate pass one reception for zero yards. Starting tailback BenJarvus Green-Ellis also hasn't seen game-Sction
since 2004 because of his transfer.

Offensive Outlook
Coach Sylvester Croom is optimistic about what players he will showcase on
offense. Unfortunately, a Bulldogs upgrade will mean little in the SEC unless
they make a 180-degree improvement. With all-time leading rusher Jerious
Norwood gone, this will hardly be the case. Led by sophomore Brandon
Thornton, tailback is deep but unproven. Second-year quarterback Michael
Henig is solid and appears to finally understand Croom's West Coast offense.
However, the offensive line is shaky, and Henig has limited help at receiver.

Defensive Outlook
Here's your "I did not know that" item of the day: Mississippi State's defense
can play with anybody. That's no typo either. The Bulldogs return most of their
squad that ranked No. 29 nationally in total defense last season. Michael
Heard (3.5 sacks in 2005) anchors a solid defensive line. Linebacker Quinton
Culberson recorded 78 tackles last season is one of the SEC's best. Mississippi
State's secondary ranked No. 28 nationally in pass defense last season and-
returns its core.

Impact Player Spotlight
QB Michael Henig, SO.
Who knew billiards was a physical sport? Not
Henig.
S Excited to play friend Granger Shook in pool
during the off-season, Henig ran up some stairs
and broke his foot in three different places. He
attended church the next day and classes the day
after before deciding he might need an X-ray.
"It was ugly," admitted Henig, who said his second toe was pointing
to his pinkie.
Freak injuries aside, the 6-foot Henig is quite the catch for Starkville,
Miss. and the Bulldogs. The floppy-haired, baby-faced player flaunts
the intriguing boyish looks you would expect from a choir singer, not an
impact quarterback.
"[Players] give me a lot of stuff about [my looks] but a lot of them look
like they're about 40 in that locker room so I give them a lot of stuff
too," Henig said.
It helps that he has game. The sophomore perfected his touch during
foot rehab by throwing passes while sitting down. With a year under his
belt and receivers like Omarr Conner and Tony Burks on the field, Henig
could have a breakout season.
"Coach [Croom] has been getting a lot of problems from people
saying, 'He's tryingto stick with the West Coast offense and Maybe
he should try to change it up for the talent that he has,'" Henig said.
"Well he did stick it out and now I think-you're goingto see success this
year."


Mississippi State will ROCK because Coacn Sylvester Croom won't accept failure. He is in nhs third year with tie Bulldogs and finally
has the players wrio accept discipline and car play.

Mississippi State vwill GET ROLLED because the Bulldogs are sull in the SEC. None of the Western Division teams ahead of MSU will
slip enough to make room in the standings.

Har-Vindication


Percy Harvin hopes to leave problems in the past.


* THE RECEIVER WAS BANNED
FROM VIRGINIA PREP SPORTS.

By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
dtreat@alligator.org

For every touchdown catch that Percy
Harvin hauled in high school, he seemed to
spark a reciprocal controversy.
For every person who cheered him and
supported his dreams, it seemed like just as
many wanted to tear him down.


He led his team to a state championship as
a junior but was suspended late in the regu-
lar season while his team, Landstown High
of Virginia Beach, Va., attempted to repeat ad
champions.
So wherein does the truth lie?
Is Harvin just an athlete who has let his
emotions get the best of him?
"In high school, the good things I did
got overshadowed by the bad things I did,"
Harvin said. "People thought that I didn't
work hard and that I was just a knucklehead
or whatever you want to call it."
No matter how you approach it,


S-. '%

Tim Casey/ Alligator
UF receiver Percy Harvin has all the speed in the world but must prove he was not the
uncontrollable person some claim he was during high school.


Gainesville has been Harvin's new beginning
- an escape from the heartache and drama
that overtook his high school career.
"Coming here, I get a whole new clean
start," Harvin said. "Everybody will see that
I work hard, so I see it as a new beginning."
However, in order to embrace this decla-
ration, you must understand his past.

The History
His athletic talents have never been ques-
tioned.
Harvin's 75 catches, 1,313 yards receiving,
504 yards rushing and 33 total touchdowns as
a high school senior can attest to that.
Many experts considered Harvin the best
prep wide receiver in the country in 2005, if
not the best player period. The shifty player
boasts a quick first step and the ability to
seemingly elicit missed tackles at will.
"That's my thing: A 5-yard stop, that's all I
need," Harvin said.
After being courted by every major pro-
gram, he eventually chose the Gators over
Southern California.
While his talents have never been doubt-
ed, his head has.
Harvin was suspended twice during his
senior season. The first suspension for
unsportsmanlike conduct caused him to
miss Landstown's final two regular-season
football games.
The second suspension came during
basketball season. The Virginia High School.
League suspended Harvin from all competi-
tion, meaning he couldn't help his teammates
return to the state title game.
It also meant that Harvin wouldn't be able
to defend his record five gold medals that he
won at the state track meet as a junior. No
other athlete in Virginia history has accom--
plished as much.
Problem was, Harvin often became the
target of taunts and derogatory actions.
"Being the man, a lot of teams took shots
at me," Harvin said. "In basketball, a lot of
teams would send a dummy player in just to
foul me hard. It went through that the whole
season football and basketball."
Harvin explained the situation this way:
He never instigated conflict. When op-
ponents provoked him, Harvin would be
reprimanded for his retaliation, while the
instigator was ignored.
"I had to watch what I said and watch
what I do-on the field," Harvin said. "I
couldn't do anything, or it was an unsports-
manlike conduct or a personal foul. I had to
walk a narrow, straight line. A person could
push me and I'd react, but the person who
pushed me never got in trouble."
Harvin's mother, Linda, struggled when
asked to determine what her son's most try-
ing high school experience was.


"It was probably when he was going back
and forth with the suspensions," she said.
Harvin had no problem answering the
question.
It was the night an opposing football
player spat on him.
"I just totally blanked out," Harvin said.
"I'd rather a person either push me or punch
me than to spit in my face."

The Rededication
Bombarded with problems from the out-
side world, Harvin found sanctuary in the
homes of his mother and girlfriend, whose
father is a preacher.
"My mom she's not religious but she
really believes in God," Harvin said. "She's
the one who helped me to believe that it was
enough for me to just chill out."
Harvin often consulted with his high
school coaches. They all gave him a similar
message: Make the best of your time away
from sports.
"Coming here, I get a whole new
clean start. Everybody will see that
I work hard, so I see it as a new
beginning."
Percy Harvin
UF freshmanwide reciever

"At first I didn't want to hear it," Harvin
said. "Hearing it from one person was one
thing, but hearing it from everybody, I was
like, 'OK, maybe I need to sit down and listen
on this one.'"
Despite all the negative news coming out
of Virginia Beach, UF's coaching staff never
wavered in its support of Harvin.
"I talked with them, and of course Percy
talked with them," Linda said. "We pretty
much let them know what was going on
[every day], and I guess they knew a lot of
what was going on and what to expect before
we did."
That faith was rewarded. Harvin made
a habit of working out before dawn and re-
dedicated himself to arrive at UF in the best
shape of his life.
It was an attitude that didn't shock the
man who had recruited him.
"I had a chance to get a great relationship
with Percy because I had the chance to recruit
him last year," UF wide receivers coach Billy
Gonzales said. "I know there was a lot of
press about this and that about Percy. I went
to his practices and I saw him work out in
person. I went to his teachers, I went to his
basketball coach. The one thing about Percy
is you're getting a guy who has a great atti-
tude and great work ethic. You don't become
a fantastic player without that."
In fact, it was the bond between Harvin
