Bicycle accident leads to death of UF grad.student


By STEPHANIE GARRY
and JUSTIN RICHARDS
Alligator Staff Writers
An avid cyclist, UF graduate student
McNair Bostick always wore his helmet after
a department professor's leg was broken in a
biking accident last month.
He was wearing it Sunday when a car fatal-
ly injured him on Williston Road as he headed
home to his wife, Carmen, and 10-month-old
son, Luca, who lived with him in University
Village South.

The driver who hit him stopped, vis-
ibly disturbed. It was unknown by press time
whether the driver faces any charges.
An acquaintance, Brian Roth, happened.to
be driving by and saw Bostick was laying in"
a ditch next to his bike. The driver's car had
damage to its passenger side and headlight.
Blood was coming from Bostick's mouth,
but he managed to tell bystanders his home
phone number so they could contact his wife,
said Roth, who still has the number memo-
rized.
Roth had known Bostick for about a year
but felt most connected to him as he stood

over him on the roadside.
"I would say I met.him on the road,"
Roth said. "Our friendship
was very short and very
intense."
Roth touched Bostick's
legs to check for injuries.
Bostick said he couldn't feel
Roth's fingers, but he hurt
-everywhere.
Bostick "I told him I was go-
ing to come and see him, I
would visit him," Roth said. "When I went to
the hospital he wasn't there anymore."

Bostick had a collapsed lung, a broken neck
and massive internal bleeding, said Jawoo
Koo, a doctoral student and dose friend. He
died early Monday morning in the emergency
room at Shands at UF, Koo said.
His friends plan to write Bostick's son a
letter, to be read when he's old enough to un-
derstand who his father was.
"We kept thinking what we can do for his
son when he grew up," Koo said. "He won't
remember McNair very well."

MULTICULTURAL AFFAIRS

Institute of Black Culture holds welcome assembly


* THE 18TH ANNUAL ASSEMBLY
HIGHLIGHTED CLUBS AND RESOURC-
ES AVAILABLE TO BLACK STUDENTS.

By ALEX TIEGEN
Alligator Writer
atiegen@alligator.org

Students were invited to join a prince
on a journey from Africa to the Gator
Nation on Tuesday night, as the Institute
of Black Culture showed hundreds of stu-
dents how to make UF their home.
IBC's 18th annual Black Student
Assembly, held in the Reitz Union Grand
Ballroom, introduced black students at UF
to the various clubs and other resources
available to them.
To showcase UF's student resources,
performers re-enacted scenes from
the Eddie Murphy movie "Coming to
America," which follows the adventures
of a prince seeking a wife in America.
Spinning and stomping dancers from
dance troupe Apocalypse ushered audi-
ence members into the fictional African
country of Zamunda, where they met a
prince called Akee and joined him on his
journey to UF.
During the journey, the audience and
Akee were introduced to UF's student
leaders and administrators.
Black Student Union President Billy
Holcombe played Akee's father, the king
of Zamunda, and told him and the audi-

ence about BSU.
Student Body President John Boyles
and Treasurer Ryan Moseley talked about
how students can get involved in SG,
while pretending to get their hair cut in a
barbershop scene.
A member of the National Pan-Hellenic
Council dressed up as the energetic
preacher from "Coming to America" and
ushered in performances from hip-hop


dance troupe Urban Essence and Greek
organizations.
Sharon Burney, an office manager from
the department of African-American stud-
ies, told students not give in to stereotypes
presented in MTV shows and other forms
of popular culture.
"None of the young women I see to-
night look like the women from the Flava
Flav show," she said, referring to the


popular VH1 program.
Mike Powell, an associate director of
admissions, also advised students against
following the crowd and showing off in
front of their friends.
"I don't think I admitted one thug to
the University of Florida," he said.
Dean of Students Gene Zdziarski and
Dr. Anthony Greene, from the department
of clinical and health psychology, told stu-
dents about the academic and professional
services offered at UF.
Freshman Travis Marine came to the as-
sembly to learn more about the clubs and
organizations at the university.
Marine said he might join the University
Gospel Choir.
"It's very important to be surrounded
by other African Americans so I can do
well in school," he said.
Author Stephanie Evans, the event's
keynote speaker, said black students
should strive to strike a balance between
peace and passion in their lives to succeed
at UF.
Evans, an associate professor of wom-
en's studies and African-American stud-
ies, said she thought people should get
angry when learning about injustices in
black history.
However, she added, there is a differ-
ence between anger and bitterness.
"I get angry all the time," she said.
"I am an angry black woman. But I love
people and appreciate people as human
beings."

Returning grad students say they're underpaid


* WAGE DIFFERENCES LEAVE VET-
ERAN ASSISTANTS SKEPTICAL.

By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Alligator Writer
acancino@alligator.org

UF's history department has increased the.
salary of new graduate assistants by $3,000,
leaving returning students with questions
about how much the department values their
work.
The returning assistants in the department
- about 30 will be paid $9,000 a year, while
the department's eight or so new students will
earn $12,000 a year.


Department ChairmanJoseph Spillane said
his department asked the College of Liberal-
Arts and Sciences to increase the salary of all
graduate assistants, but college officials said
they did not have enough money.
"The department is not happy about it,
either," Spillane said, adding that the college
left him with no choice but to raise salaries
for new students. To do that, the department
hired fewer students.
CLAS Dean Neil Sullivan said the history
department increased salaries to compete with
other universities, as well as to respond to a re-
view that advised the department to increase
graduate students' salaries.
Todd Reynolds, chief steward for Graduate
Assistants United, said his organization con-


ducted a study that revealed that other insti-
tutions pay graduate assistants significantly
more than UF does.
For example, he said, the University of
Michigan pays its graduate assistants about
$21,492 a year.
"I agree that graduate assistants are under-
paid, but this is a slap
UF in the face to current
Administration workers," Reynolds
said.
Jason Antley, a
UF doctoral student who works as a teaching
assistant in the history department, said he
was disappointed at the way administrators
handled the situation.
"The administration tried to hide it," he.


said, adding he did not hear the news about
the salary increase until Thursday, when stu-
dents met the department's graduate student
coordinator.
Sullivan said that although the circum-
stances are unfortunate, the college has to
compete for new students every year.
Additionally, he said, returning graduate
assistants are receiving a 3 percent salary in-
crease this year.
But Reynolds said he felt the college is es-
sentially telling returning students that their
jobs are not as important as new students' jobs.
"When you are getting paid significantly
less than the person you are training, it does
not makes you happy to be a Gator," Reynolds
said.


Action platform


advocates slide,


shuns spending

By JOEY CHINDAMO
SAlligator Writer
jchindamo@alligator.org

With Fall's Student Government election less than a
month away, the Action Party became the first SG political
group to release an official platform Tuesday afternoon.
The party's nine-point platform includes goals to
fund a student road trip to the Gators football game
against Georgia in Jacksonville, build a waterslide at
Lake Wauburg and provide free printing across campus.
The party also hopes to pass a bill of rights, which would
guarantee "leaders that listen" and "an
A01* environment that celebrates diversity."

In order to turn Action's plans into
reality, party President Thomas Jardon
said the group would reallocate about
$105,000 of SG's budget by cutting frivo-


i,.: lous spending.
"Every year SG has a banquet that
Hardwick they allocate $4,000 for," Jardon said.
"No SG-funded organization can spend
SG funds on awards, so why can SG do it themselves?"
The Action Party also wants to stop paying for trips to
a leadership conference in Orlando, which three SG of-
ficials attended earlier this month at a cost of $2,000 per
person.
But the most savings would come from the SG adver-
tising budget, which is set at almost $50,000, Jardon said.
UF students will vote for a new vice president and
about half the members of the Student Senate during the
Fall election, to be held Sept. 26 and 27.
The Swamp Party is waiting to create a platform until
its election candidates are finalized, party leader Keith
Hardwick said. The party also plans to organize forums
for students to voice their concerns to Swamp.
"We're going to have great candidates," Hardwick
said. "They're open, accessible and accountable to stu-
dents, and they want to hear their feedback."
Once the Swamp Party creates its platform, Hardwick
said, party officials will publicize it with signs, fliers, a
Web site and T-shirts.
"But the paramount thing that gets a platform out and
that gets the students' imaginations and truly captures
everyone is our candidates doing face-to-face talking,"
Hardwick said.
Bruce Haupt, the Pants Party vice presidential candi-
date, said his party's platform is not really policy-oriented
and instead focuses on adding more fun to SG.
"Truly and honestly, the reason we're here is that SG
takes itself way too seriously," he said. "People go to the
meetings in suits, all dressed up, call each other 'Senator'
- we're here to have fun arid have a Pants Cabinet."

Police target rowdy riders as cars crank up music


* RESIDENTS ARE COM-
PLAINING ABOUT THE NOISE.

By JAMES RIGNEY
Alligator Writer

Stacy Fiehn has trouble study-
ing with all the noise.
The 20-year-old history major
has been tortured for months by
thumping bass from a vehicle
parked near her apartment.
"He's got a little, tiny PT
Cruiser, and the entire back of the
car is filled with speakers," she
said.
The music is so loud she can
hear the bass over her headphones,
and sometimes feels her walls
shaking.
Fiehn isn't the only person in-
town aggravated by loud music.
Gainesville Police spokesman
Sgt. Keith Kameg said the depart-
ment receives many complaints
about loud car stereos.
"We are stressing to our officers
that we want loud-car-stereo tick-
ets," he said. "We want to write
as many citations as humanly
possible."


A driver will receive a $77.50
citation if an officer can hear the
stereo from 25 feet away, according
to Florida law.
Ryan Faraci, 18, can't count on
both hands the number of noise
violations he's received.
He said he cranks his 2,000-watt
stereo system to "show off."
"I'll be driving down the street,
and I'll hear someone with their
music up really loud, but they
don't have as good of a system as
me, so I just crank mine up to just
to be like, 'Yeah, I'm better than
you.'"
Faraci said he invested $4,500
worth of audio equipment into
his Ford F-150. His car stereo can
reach volumes louder than a mili-
tary jet takeoff.
Although he sometimes vio-
lates the noise restrictions on main
roads, Faraci believes there should
be rules against drivers blasting
loud music in residential neighbor-
hoods, especially after dark.
"It's really disrespectful," he
said. "I would blast my music out-
side of the neighborhood, but the
second I got in the neighborhood I
would turn it down to where you
could barely hear it."

Noise violations from drivers playing loud music are on the rise in Gainesville. Police have received many
complaints, and officers are on the lookout for noisy drivers.


Citizen classes help residents understand government


City classes are open to anyone interested


By PANAGIOTA PAPAKOS
Alligator Contributing Writer

The class is not held on UF's campus, and it's not for credit,
but city officials believe the course contains vital information
for Gainesville residents.
Students and other residents will have the opportunity to
learn-more about their city government starting next week at
the Gainesville Citizens' Academy.
The weekly academy meetings, sponsored by the city,
will begin on Wednesday with a lesson on community and
economic development. Now in its second year, the Citizens'
Academy was created to help citizens understand how the
departments of city government operate.
"There was no program that would allow citizens to learn
about every facet of city government," said city spokesman


Bob Woods.
Woods said the program helps people become better citi-
zens and credits City Manager Russ Blackburn for providing
the direction, focus and leadership needed to start Citizens'
Academy.
"We view this as an opportunity for a dynamic exchange,"
said Woods, adding that other cities have similar programs.
Last year about 12 people regularly attended the academy
meetings, but Woods said they hope to double attendance this
year.
To draw more people, the sessions have been scheduled to
run each week until Oct. 25, rather than once a month.
Over the course of eight weeks, staff from different depart-
ments of the city will instruct citizens on topics ranging from
transportation to recreational facilities.
As part of a session on the city's emergency response sys-


tem, citizens will view a live demonstration by Gainesville Fire
Rescue. The final session will include information on the city's
finance and budget.
"People can better understand how the city is utilizing their
tax dollars," said Woods, adding that the cost of the program
willbe minimal.
"We view this as an opportunity for a dynamic
exchange."
Bob Woods
Gainesville city spokesman

The Gainesville Citizens' Academy is open to anyone inter-
ested, and sessions begin at 8 a.m. and end at noon. Locations
will vary.
Those interested in participating can visit the city's Web site
at www.cityofgainesville.org for more information.


UF study spotlights manatees


By LINDSEY FRANCO

Ifranco@alligator.org -

They're fat, they're slow and a UF research-
er says they may be smarter than you think.
Manatees are surprisingly well adapted to
their murky coastal environments, according to
recent research led by UF professor Roger Reep.
Reep, who works at the university's College
of Veterinary Medicine, co-authored a book that
says the thick hairs coating manatees' wrinkled
skin gives them an acute sense of touch and al-
lows them to detect changes in water movement.
Reep could not be reached for comment
Tuesday, but UF researchers who work with him
stressed the importance of manatee research.
"If we understand how they perceive their
environments, it will help us to preserve them
as a species overall," said Diana Sarko, a senior'
graduate student who researches manatees with
Reep.
The study on manatees' mental complexity,
which Reep worked on with researchers from
two other Florida universities, was featured in an
article on the front page of The New York Times'
science section Tuesday.


Reep has studied manatees for the past 15
years, and in his book "The Florida Manatee:
Biology and Conservation," he argues that the
small size of manatee brains has nothing to do
with their intelligence.
Iske Larkin, an assistant scientist at UF who
also studies manatee physiology with Reep, said
the endangered species uses a tactile system
to grab onto things and interact with environ-
ments.
"All of that gives them a
UF very sensitive sense of touch,
Sand that provides them a very
good idea of what's going on
around them," Larkin said.
Reep and Larkin coordinate UF's 6-year-old
aquatic animal health program, in which re-
searchers study the health of sea mammals.
Sarko, one of the program's graduate students,
said the researchers partner with a St. Petersburg-
based manatee-salvage program to recover sick
and strangled manatees and examine them.
"Its a greater awareness of an endangered
species, and the more we learn, the better we can
help them and manage them," Larkin said. "I
think it's critical that the largest research univer-
sity in the state is a major player in that."

Election fraud

SG picks paper ballots

for upcoming SG vote
Last spring, four out of five UF students said they
wanted true online voting for Student Government
elections. Apparently, that pesky fifth guy was a mem-
ber of the Swamp Party.
At Tuesday's Student Senate meeting, SG Supervisor of
Elections Brian Aungst announced that optical-scan paper bal-
lots will be used in next month's SG elections. Scantrons. Aungst
says they're more reliable than online voting and cheaper than
on-campus, secured-site voting just what the doctor ordered
to restore credibility to the electoral process.
,We beg to differ.
If SG wants us to believe our votes will actually mean some-
thing, ignoring the wishes of an overwhelming majority of the
student body is a weird way of showing it. But that's exactly
what they've done. Again.
Of course, true online voting has problems of its own. Not
everyone has a computer. Hackers and system failures can
compromise the.integrity of the process. Online, it's difficult to
know if voters really are who they say they are.
But that's small potatoes compared to the problems paper
ballots don't solve inconvenience, pathetically low turnout
and massive overrepresentation of fraternities and sororities.
These issues damage SG's credibility more than a hacker ever
could.
So let's face facts, shall we? In the eyes of most students, SG
isn't much more than a well-funded cub for people in Florida
Blue Key and Kappa Phi Whatever. Sure, the elections are fun.
Everyone gets T-shirts, signs and bumper stickers. But the end
result is always the same.
That's why UF students don't vote. That's why it's hard for
us to take SG seriously. And that's why UF needs true online
voting to bring new voters, new parties and even (gasp!) new
candidates into the electoral process. Without it, we'll just see
more of the same. But then, maybe that's the whole idea.


City targets rent


F or broke college
students, living in
Gainesville can be
tough. There's the loud
neighbors, the bugs and
the undependable hot
water. And now, thanks
to the Gainesville City
Commission, UF students
living off campus will prob-
ably see their rent go up.
Why, you ask? This
week, the City Commission
voted to increase the price
of landlord rental permits
by $93. Gainesville land-
lords, being landlords, will
duly pass this cost on to
their student renters. That's
you.
The ostensible purpose
of the price increase is to
crack down on sloppy rent-
ers who break city codes.
You know the type: un-


mowed lawn, trash every-
where, a broken-down car
parked on the front lawn.
Maybe you are that type.
But to the Alligator,
this seems like the latest
effort in a campaign to
pull UF students out of
Gainesville's rental homes
and stick them in big apart-
ment complexes on Archer
Road. And don't get us
wrong those complexes
are nice, but they're not for
everybody.
We understand the city's
desire to quarantine UF stu-
dents. We're noisy, messy
credit risks. But without
UF, Gainesville wouldn't
be much of a city at all. So
here's our advice to the
City Commission: Learn to
live with us, because you
can't live without us.

Plenty of problems to go around as new year begins at UF


ere's no denying that UF is one of the best schools in the
country. That's definitely good news for all the freshmen.
But there's also no denying that UF has its fair share of
problems.
Let's start with Student Government. For weeks, we had
no Student Body vice president. That meant no one to oversee
SG's massive Cabinet. We had $12 million sitting around with
no one to tell the Cabinet how to spend it.
SG rectified that problem with the appointment of Arturo
Armand. But maybe there is a bigger issue behind all this. Why
is SG being led by students who seem always to be plagued by
academic problems?
Lydia Washington stepped down as vice president in July
because of her grades. Last Spring, Lindsay Cosimi resigned
from her post as treasurer after she received an incomplete
grade. One week later, she nominated herself to replace ...
herself. And won.
As we raise our standards for admission and President
Bernie Machen tries furiously to move us into the Top 10,


Jessica maybe we need to raise our standards
Holland for SG candidates too.
Speaking Out The rules in place now say you only
need a grade point average of 2.0 to run
for any office even Student Body
president. Yet most clubs on campus require their officers to
maintain at least a 3.0 GPA. Does anyone else see a problem
here?
Our student leaders should first and foremost be dedicated
to their studies. After all, who came to college just to be in SG?
Most people I know say they came to get a degree and to
party, of course. Our SG officers need to remember why they
are here in the first place.
That being said, what else is wrong here at UF? Well, for one
thing, why are we wasting thousands of dollars on changing
the signage around campus? Letterheads and Web sites are one
thing those are relatively cheap to change but the signs?
Come on, Bernie. Now the only place we'll be able to find the
seal is on our degrees.


And besides, will changing a bunch of signs to redd, "The
Foundation for The Gator Nation" propel UF into the Top 10 or
whet the appetites of prospective students? I think not.
Another problem at UF is ignorant bicycle riders. Here's a
tip, guys: There are beautiful bike lanes all over campus. Use
them! Don't ride on the sidewalk when there is a bike lane right
next to it. Not only do you look ridiculous doing it, but it is
dangerous to pedestrians, cars and yourself. You're much less
likely to hurt yourself or someone else if you are in a bike lane,
riding with the flow of traffic.
Last but not least, every classroom in the state of Florida
is required by law to have an American flag prominently on
display but not a dock. As a result, very few classrooms
around campus actually have these inexpensive, useful gad-
gets making it very hard for students to know how much
time they have left to write that essay, take that test or finish the
daily crossword puzzle. And that is something we just cannot
stand for.
Jessica Holland is an economics and German junior.


the
More to education than just grades
After reading Gerald Liles' Tuesday col-
umn, I felt I had to respond.
Every student at UF is a paying student
- or, if not that, a paid-for student and a
university education is only what the student
himself makes of it. If a student chooses to get
an A and then shrug off any subsequent learn-
ing, then so be it.
Believe that if most teachers had their way,
they would not even grade students on a letter
scale. Grades are just another burden a teacher
must carry. By allowing students to drop their
lowest test scores, teachers are choosing to


lessen the importance a grade has on a course
- not necessarily the amount of knowledge a
student should come away with.
This is a decision made with UF students
in mind. Of course, no teacher can account for
a student's abuses. If my doctor were to brag
of his 4.0 grade point average, then instead of
asking whether he'd dropped his lowest test
grade, I'd find another doctor who bragged of
a genuine passion for learning.

Higher tuition hurts working families
I disagree with UF President Bernie
Machen's wrongheaded desire to continually
raise our tuition.
In the last few years, tuition in the state of
Florida has gone up 53 percent, while median
family income has only increased 8 percent.
Students are working harder and falling fur-
ther into debt student indebtedness has in-
creased more than 74 percent since just 1997.
Merit-based aid, which typically favors
students who can already afford tuition, is
increasing at three times the rate of need-


based aid. State funding for our universities is
decreasing, and the remaining burden is being
placed on Florida's citizens. Now we are in the
process of creating a bifurcated education sys-
tem in which the best education will only
go to those who can afford it.
Machen's mistake is to equate high cost
with a quality education. The people of Florida
would be better served if he cut the bureau-
cratic waste in his own administration before
looking to add to the burdens of an already-
strapped student body and their families.

Leisure courses promote fun, laid-back learning


* REGISTRATION BEGINS TODAY FOR
THE NONGRADED UF CLASSES.

By JESSIE COLEMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

If you rub her back, she just might rub
yours.
Jessica Sweeney, a sophomore at UF, has
been known to ease some tension for her
friends after taking a massage leisure course
in Spring.
"It is a lot more complicated than just rub-
bing someone's back," Sweeney said. "There
are a lot more techniques to it."
UF offers a wide array of leisure courses
in massage therapy, stained glass and myriad
other skills. Registration begins today at 10
a.m. for the zero-credit, nongraded courses,
which are open to the public.
This semester, new courses in Web design
and drawing supplement about 70 others.
Among the most popular courses are ceram-
ics, tennis, guitar, home bartending, dance,
stained glass and screen-printing.
"Not only do you learn a new skill, but you
also meet a lot of new people in the process,"
said Julie English, leisure course coordinator.
The duration of a leisure course varies
from a one-day workshop to a seven-week
curriculum. Most classes are offered on cam-
pus, with the exception of golf, tennis, dance,
rock climbing and martial arts.
The cheapest course, a one-day jack-o'-lan-
tern workshop, costs $10 for students. Other
courses charge up to $100. All classes offer a
discount to UF students vith Gator 1 Cards.
Fees must be paid upon registration, and
spots go quickly.
"I would definitely suggest to be online


and ready at 10 a.m.," English said.
Students and nonstudents can reg-
ister and pay by credit card online at
www.union.ufl.edu/leisure, or stop by the
Arts & Crafts Center in the Reitz Union base-
ment to sign up in person. Proposals for new
classes and applications for instructor posi-
tions are also accepted on the Web site.

S"I made a lot of presents for my boy-
friend, and my cats have their own
personal bowls now."
Clera Galbraith
UF sophomore

Ciera Galbraith, a sophomore at UF, com-
pleted a beginning ceramics course in the
Spring and now works as a student assistant
in the Arts & Crafts Center. The course was a
springboard for her job as an assistant, and
she found practical uses for her crafts.
"I made a lot of presents for my boyfriend,
and my cats have their own personal bowls
now," Galbraith said.
As an additional perk for signing up for an
art class, students receive a free membership
to the Arts & Crafts Center for the duration of
the course. They can use the facilities from 1
p.m. to 10 p.m., Monday through Friday, and
from noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday.
Galbraith plans on taking guitar and pos-
sibly a ceramic teapot class this semester.
"I've always wanted to learn guitar, and
it's a pretty relaxed environment to do that
in," she said.
Allowing students to relax and learn in a
stress-free environment is the desired out-
come of the leisure course program.
"It's just for fun, creativity and relaxation,"
English said.

2006 FOOTBALL PREVIEW


Latsko, Casey lead way for unique 'P' position


By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
nzaccardi@alligator.org


Dallas Baker. Andre Caldwell.
Jemalle Cornelius. Billy Latsko.
That is a possible box score
rundown of UF's top receivers fol-
lowing the Gators' opener against
Southern Miss.
While Baker, Caldwell and
Cornelius enter the season with
extensive experience catching the
ball, Latsko, a fullback, could see his
blocking role expanded.
Second-year coach Urban Meyer
has combined the fullback and tight
end spots into the "P position,"
which includes packages for block-


ing, carrying the ball, lining up at
tight end and splitting out wide.
While each player possesses dif-
ferent skills, Latsko, fellow fullback
Eric Rutledge and tight ends Tate
Casey and Cornelius Ingram have
all practiced at the P.
Latsko and Casey, the top pre-
season players at -r respective
positions, could see the most plays.
"They have very different builds,
but they'll be using a lot of the same
plays because both of them are good
blockers and both of them have re-
ally good hands," UF offensive coor-
dinator Dan Mullen said. "We kind
of use them interchangeably."
Latsko will be the primary player
in fullback packages in the P, backed


up by Rutledge.
But the Buchholz High graduate
spent more of spring practice with
the ball than he did blocking for a

back,
"That was to
see what I could
do with the ball,
to test my skills a
little bit," Latsko
said. "They
A know what I can
Latsko do with the ball
now. Maybe every now and then
I'm going to get the ball on a hand-
off, maybe on a 4-and-1."
Casey is just happy to have a role
in the offense.


A surprise standout as a fresh-
man, Casey didn't know what to
think when Meyer replaced former
coach Ron Zook.
"There were times when I was
frustrated," Casey said. "I wouldn't
necessarily say I was thinking about
transferring. It was always on my
mind last year before the season."
He didn't start in UF's first eight
games last year but broke out with
three catches and a touchdown in a
14-10 win against Georgia.
"The Georgia game just re-
minded me what I could do for this
team," Casey said. -
After two seasons buried on the
quarterback depth chart, it's now
time to see what Ingram can do for


this team.
The converted quarterback and
former part-time basketball player
said he would rather line up at re-
ceiver to avoid blocking.
"I see [Ingram] more at wide
receiver," Meyer'said. "C.I. has not
played a lot of football. He is just
extremely talented and athletic. We
will have a nice package for him."
Though he has yet to register a
passing attempt or a catch in a regu-
lar-season game, the 6-foot-4, 225-
pound Hawthorne native has joined
the fray for the No. 4 receiver.
"After sitting two years, playing
quarterback, I've got a lot built up in
me," Ingram said. "I just want to get
out there and play."


Injuries plague reserve linebackers


LINEBACKERS, from page 24


That leaves Crum as the successor to
Todd McCullough on the strong side.
The converted tight end recorded 13
tackles in 10 games last year.
But if the senior plays as well as coaches
have hyped he will, then UF will have a trio
that rivals any school.
UF co-defensive coordinator Charlie
Strong called Crum the most improved
player on the defense at the beginning of
preseason practice.
"When you look at him, he has every-
thing you look for skill-wise just height
and speed," Strong said. "You just feel like
hey, now it's time for Brian Crum to step
up. There's always a guy in your program
that it's time for them step up. I think that's


Brian Crum."'
Crum's returning competition, sopho-
more Jon Demps, decided to redshirt and
undergo surgery for a torn knee ligament.
. Meyer said Demps, who tore the same
ligament last season, will redshirt and have
three years of eligibility remaining.
Then there's
Gators the latest problem:
GatOS -Freshman A.J. Jones
has broken his foot
and will redshirt as
well. That leaves the door open for'the two
other freshmen Brandon Spikes and
Dustin Doe to catch and pass by return-
ees like Ryan Stamper and Eric Sledge.
"They're guys that can run," Strong
said. "You want that at the linebacker po-
sition. Then you want a solid guy in the
middle like Spikes is, where he can set it
down like Siler can."


NICK-EL, from page 24


placed Brown at comer replaces him as the
face. But the Gators can't have two con-
secutive defensive players take the honor,
let alone both at corerback.
The winner should come as no sur-
prise.
The 2006 Face of Gators football is ...
fullback Billy Latsko.
First of all, Latsko hails from
Gainesville. Gainesville High alums had
their time with Brown last year. Now
Buchholz could have something to be
proud of besides Vernon Maxwell.
Latsko certainly has the work ethic
to succeed Brown. Taking a construction
job during the summer, he matches the


fullback's dirty-work stereotype.
He's unselfish on the field, too. Latsko
had as many carries last season one -
as Randy Hand, Eric Wilbur, Earl Everett
and Gavin Dickey. So how does Latsko feel
about his candidacy?
After repeated attempts by reporters to
bait Latsko into making a case for himself,
he tried to remain humble.
"I think we're going to have a lot of
players be the face of Florida football this
year," Latsko said. "You've got Chris Leak.
You've got Jemalle Cornelius. You've got a
lot of good players."
After one more question, Latsko broke
down, joking that Baker should not be cho-
sen because of the gap between his teeth.
Is it too late to make him the mouth of
Florida football?

Offensive Outlook
With Coach Steve Spurrier at the helm, it's no secret that South Carolina will try to
feature a potent passing attack. Look for the passing game to improve in year two
under Spurrier, but it might ultimately be the running game that is the key to success
for the Gamecocks this season. Sophomore Mike Davis will return as the starting
tailback after a successful debut season. Cory Boyd the team's leading rusher in
2004- retums from a suspension that forced him to miss all of last season and will
take carries away from Davis. Expect steady improvement out of junior quarterback
Blake Mitchell if he can get any help out of his terrible offensive line and a repeat
performance from superstar wide receiver Sidney Rice.

Defensive Outlook
The Gamecocks simply lack experience on defense. USC returns only four starters
and will be without all three starting linebackers from 2005. Senior Fred Bennett is
a talented playmaker at the cornerback position, but he can't cover the whole field.
Opposing teams won't throw Bennett's way unless someone else in the secondary
steps up. Hefty nose tackle Stanley Doughty (6-foot-l, 331 pounds) anchors the
Gamecocks' defensive line but needs to be in better physical shape than last
season if he expects to make a major impact.

Impact Player Spotlight
WR Sidney Rice, SO.

South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier
has seen plenty of talented receivers, but
after just one season of collegiate football,
sophomore Sidney Rice is already drawing
comparisons to some of the'great wideouts
Spurrier coached at UF.
"Sidney is one of the best," Spurrier said.
"He's a little taller than Ike Hilliard and Reidel Anthony. Probably
not as fast, but he's improved his speed this off-season."
With the kind of freshman season the 6-foot-3, 200-pound
receiver had in 2005, he seems worthy of the comparisons.
How about this for a rookie year: 70 catches for 1,143 yards
and 13 touchdowns. And he did all that despite missing the
season opener against Central Florida due to a broken finger.
This year, the Freshman All-American is a known commodity
and won't be sneaking up on anybody.
"Everybody knows about Sidney now," Spurrier said. "He
needs to prove he can do it year after year, which I think he
knows that.
"He's a big-time talent"

Jones out


for season

By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org

Freshman linebacker A.J. Jones has bro-
ken his foot and will redshirt, providing a
significant blow to his position's depth.
"That's a pretty big sting for us because
he was going to have some game reps,"
Coach Urban Meyer said. "He's a great kid
and a great young man."
Jones, a former Middleton High (Tampa)
standout, suffered a small crack in an out-
side bone of his foot. The injury occurred
Monday during a non-contact drill. He will
undergo surgery within the next two days
and spend seven weeks in a boot.
Jones would have backed up strong-side
linebacker Brian Crum in what was already
a thin linebacking unit.
Most importantly, Jones'
'- injury leaves the Gators one
additional injury away from
foa IIa disaster.
In any case, Meyer will
rely upon a host of inexperi-
enced linebackers at one point or another.
"That's the dilemma we're in right now,"
:Meyer said. "You have [freshman Brandon]
Spikes, you have [freshman] Dustin Doe
and you have [redshirt freshman Ryan]
Stamper as the three backups right now."
Spikes is a natural middle linebacker and
Brandon Siler's backup.
Doe was slated to- backup Earl Everett
on the outside but would make a logical
replacement for Jones. Stamper has yet to
play one snap.

GATORS DISAPPOINT MEYER: UF's players
put forth a lackadaisical effort at Monday's
practice, frustrating Meyer as the season'
opener against Southern Miss continues to
inch closer.
"[The other day] was a bloody Monday,"
Meyer said. "Today was a pretty good day,
though. [Monday] was disappointing with
a lot of things during practice. I wasn't
pleased. Today was one of our better prac-
tices, but we're not ready to play a game.
There's no excuses. You just have to be
game-ready."
Explained linebacker Earl Everett: "You
just weren't seeing the guys flying around
like you need them to. You can't have that."


2006 FOOTBALL PREVIEW

Gators linebacking corps lacks depth

By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer-
nzaccardi@alligator.org

The Gators are one breakout performance i
away from having what could be the best line-
backing corps in the country.
But they're one injury away from having one
of the least experienced units.
Whereas the defensive line looks to be the
strength of the Gators' defense and the backfield .A-
could be a worlk-in-progress, the linebackers
need to stay healthy.
Outside of UF's three starters Brandon
Siler, Earl Everett and Brian Crum the Gators
return a total of one game played and zero tack-
les from last season.
Even with the lack of experienced depth,
Coach Urban Meyer likes what he has seen.
"The linebacker position's looking a little
better than it did a year ago," Meyer said. "Earl
[Everett] and Brandon [Siler] are solid. Brian
Crum is having excellent [practices]."
At middle linebacker, Siler, a junior, could
have plenty of room to roam if the touted defen-
sive line can frustrate opposing linemen.
If Siler impresses enough, Gators fans may
not see him back for his senior season.
A first-team All-Southeastern. Conference
preseason pick, Siler may jet for the NFL after
checking his draft status following last year.
"You play football from a little kid because
you want to play in the NFL," Siler said. "So it's
not something that you just don't think aboit."
Everett won't be back next season. The senior
returns to his starting spot on the weak side after
registering a team-leading 72 tackles in 2005.
"Ev'erett's doing tremendous," Meyer said. r
"He's a leader, and he's playing extremely well
right now. Him and Siler we feel good with Alligator File Photo
those two guys." Linebacker Brandon Siler is a sure thing as is Earl Everett but the
remaining linebackers are inexperienced.

Gainesville native is face of Florida football


T yet's talk body parts.
. Sorry, I don't mean the ones that Corey Brewer auto-
graphs.
I'm referring to the faces in the running for the most impor-
tant mug in Gainesville.
That would be the face of UF football.
Vemell Brown, it's time to ceremonially hand over the crown
established by Coach Urban Meyer last season.
It will be tough to follow the hometown hero known for his
work ethic and team-first mentality.
Now that you know what the role entails, it's time to look at
my selection criteria.
First off, the player mustbe a senior. So this willbe one award
Tim Tebow can't win. That takes junior linebacker Brandon Siler
out of the running, too.
SSecondly, the player has to have a flawless character record at
UF Cross off Steven Harris and Kenneth Tookes.
With-that in mind, here are my runners-up:

QB CHRIS LEAK: There's something wrong when the fourth-year

starting quarterback doesn't run away
with this crown. Maybe it's Leak's ques-
tioned leadership skills. He is still the
starting quarterback and has an impecca-
ble character record,.but maybe Leak has
too much on his plate. After all, he has
said his goal is to throw 50 touchdowns
this year, which would mean he needs to
start off with about six Saturday.


WR DALLAS BAKER: Alittle less than two years ago, Baker would
have rather hid his face than take this honor. At Tennessee,
Baker's controversial personal foul call out of an act of retali-
ation helped the Volunteers come back to defeat the Gators on
a James Wilhoit 50-yard field goal. Now, as the elder statesman
of the starting lineup, Baker is a great candidate for the face. But
playing at a me-first position has him coming up short.
