Students need no longer scalp in secret
* DESPITE THE CHANGE TO FLORIDA LAW, SCALP-
ING TICKETS ON CAMPUS IS STILL NOT ALLOWED.
By JAMES RIGNEY and GEORGIA BUCKHALTER
The days of ticket scalpers watching their backs for
fear of penalties are over as long as they sell their tick-
ets away from campus property.
Scalping tickets is no longer a crime, according to a
change in Florida law, but they cannot be sold on cam-
"You can sell tickets for whatever people will
pay, but not on UF property. Technically, on UF
property, you can't solicit anything anyway."
Capt. Jeff Holcomb
"You can sell tickets for whatever people will pay,
but not on UF property," said Capt. Jeff Holcomb of the
University Police. "Technically, on UF property, you can't
solicit anything anyway."
This is the first football season during which reselling
a ticket for more than a $1 profit is legal, and University
Police will not be using plainclothes officers to patrol for
scalping anymore, Holcomb said.
UPD officers who notice scalping on campus may issue
a notice of trespassing to the scalper, said Capt. Earl C.
Crews. He said if the person continues, their actions could
result in an arrest.
But Crews said arresting scalpers is secondary to
UPD's main concerns of stadium safety and security.

UF fleet gets its fill of ethanol

Listening to ESPN Radio and
enjoying air conditioning on a hot
summer afternoon, Eric Cochran
pulled up to the pump, got out of
the car and filled it with 10.2 gallons
- of ethanol.
Cochran, a top official at UF's
Physical Plant, smiled as he filled
the white Ford Taurus during an
event Thursday to demonstrate UF's
first ethanol fuel station.
"It's just like pumping regular
gas," Cochran said in an interview.

CampUS tank, which opened
Thursday and is lo-
cated at the fuel station
on Radio Road, was built as part of
UF's campaign to create a sustain-
able campus. The effort's benefits
range from decreased impact on the
environment to increased student
and faculty parking on campus.
Last year, UF President Bernie
Machen said all future state ve-
hicles purchased by the univer-
sity would-.be either hybrid or
able to run on ethanol, said Dedee

DON SLOAN, 62

Alligator Contributing Writer
Friends and family gathered Thursday evening to
mourn the death of a UF professor, remembered as a man
who loved students and teaching.
Don Sloan, 62, was found dead in his office Monday.
The cause of his death could not be confirmed by press
About 400 people attended his memorial service held
at Forest Grove Baptist Church in Alachua. Toward the
front of the church, a table was cluttered with mementos
like family photos.
"He was my best friend," said B.J. Sloan, Don's wid-
Sloan came to Alachua in 1986 from Lake City and be-
came chairman of UF's poultry department.
In 2000, he became coordinator of the department of
animal sciences at UF.
B.J. Sloan said her husband loved to work with pre-vet
students, adding that he would often skip lunch so that he
could help them'and offer advice.
He loved poultry so much that a student once asked if
his children were hatched or born, B.J. said.
Sloan had two daughters, Alexis and Sara, and a
granddaughter named Jesse.
Stephanie Kane, one of Sloan's students, said in an
interview Thursday that her professor was approachable,
warm and loving.
"He always talked about his wife and how much he
loved her all the time," Kane said.
Alisa Corser, another one of Sloan's students, de-
scribed him as "someone you could hug."
"I think for me, he just felt like family," she said.
Sloan was the youngest of 14 children and grew up

Airport CEO Rick Crider, Sen. Bill Nelson, airport Chairman Jim Stringfellow, County Commissioner Lee

By DOMINICK TAO
Although the fall campaign
season is under way, U.S. Sen. Bill
Nelson's speech at the Gainesville
Regional Airport on Thursday
avoided election issues.
Instead, the Florida Democrat
chose to focus on the state's aero-
space industry at the groundbreak-
ing ceremony for new taxiway light-
ing at the airport.
The $2 million construction
project is being paid for by a federal
grant Nelson helped secure after the
airport filed a request in 2005.
"This funding will help make
flying into and out of the Gainesville
Regional Airport even safer,"
Plans for the taxiway lights,
which guide pilots to and from the
runway, have been in the works for
months, but the groundbreaking
comes after a flight from Kentucky
to Atlanta crashed on Sunday, kill-
ing 49 people at takeoff.
"I could not help think of the
crash in Kentucky because of pilots
getting mixed up," Nelson said.

Nelson, the "leading congres-
sional expert on NASA," according
to his Web site, dedicated part of his
speech to announcing that Lockheed
Martin, an aerospace contractor, will
build the next generation of space-
craft in the state.
"It's a big boost for Florida and
all its universities, including UF,"
Nelsonsaid, adding that UF research
could contribute to the project.
During his speech, which was
held inside an unoccupied hangar
facing an active runway, Nelson said
he recalled coming to the Gainesville
airport as a UF freshman in'1961.
"I learned to fly at this airport,"
In spite of active campaigning by
Nelson's likely challenger in the sen-
ate race, U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris,

Bicyclists gather to foster debate about road laws
* CYCLISTS ARE SPLIT ON
LANE OCCUPANCY ISSUES.
By DREW HARWELL
After a week that included a cy-
cling-related death and arrest, mem-
bers of the cycling group. Critical
Mass held a "speak-out" Thursday
on the Plaza of the Americas.
UF senior Erica Carlsson and
junior Julian Castro, both cyclists
in Critical Mass, organized the open
forum in hopes of sparking discus-
sion about the relationship between
cyclists and motorists.
"We felt it was something
that needed to be talked about,"
Several onlookers who had never
ridden with Critical Mass asked the
group if they would accommodate
motorists by riding in one lane,
rather than the usual two lanes.
Critical Mass riders are still
divided on the issue. Some, like
Carlsson, are for one-lane riding,
while Castro and other
On Critical Mass riders
Campus would rather ride
in both lanes and go
through red lights to keep from be-
ing separated, despite the illegality
of this move.
"I see Critical Mass as a form of
civil disobedience," Castro said.
One of the pamphlets Critical
Mass members distributed at the
plaza read, "The Golden Rule:
Never trust a cop."
The speak-out comes less than a
week after Joe Richard, a UF fresh-
man, was arrested.
Richard was cycling with Critical
Mass on Friday when a portion of
the group ran a red light. Richard
continued on after police yelled for
him to stop. He was arrested on
charges of resisting arrest, said Sgt.
Chuck Reddick, an officer at the
Keith Kameg said Richard's case has
been sent to the state attorney's of-
fice for prosecution. Spencer Mann,

dropped against Richard.
Critical Mass will be holding a
special ride today beginning at the
plaza at 5 p.m.
City's bike safety questioned
By PARKER HASTINGS

In a city once declared "bicycle-friendly,"
the recent death of UF graduate student
McNair Bostick has some Gainesville bicyclists
concerned for their safety.
While friends and family of Bostick mourn
his death which resulted from a car colliding
with him while he was cycling and prepare
for a bike safety discussion at 1 p.m. today in
Frazier Rogers Hall, Room 122, other nonfatal

crossing University Avenue at night in July.
As he lay on the ground in pain, piecing
together what had happened, he realized the
severity of the situation when the driver of the
car that hit him tried to comfort him.
"He kept telling me not to look at my legs,"
Dupree said. "That's when I told him to call an

ment laws, his bike did not have a head- or tail-

Although his bicycle was seriously dam-
aged, Dupree said he felt lucky to have escaped
the accident with only badly scraped legs and a
He said his collision, as well as Bostick's
death, indicates the dire need for heightened
awareness of bicycle safety procedures on the
parts of both cyclists and motorists.
In Gainesville, as summer fades into the
busy Fall semester, the University Police see a
startling increase in bicycle-related collisions.
Many of these accidents could have been
avoided by obeying proper procedures, said
UPD spokesman Capt. Jeff Holcomb.
To enforce the proper procedures, University
Police increase the number of bicycle-related
citations issued for on-campus violations. In
2005, the number of citations issued quadru-
pled between July and August, according to
"It's frustrating to be forced onto a
sidewalk by cars plowing through like
you- aren't even there."
"The easiest way to avoid bicycle-related
citations is to abide by the laws of the road you
would follow in any other vehicle," Holcomb
Despite the UPD's emphasis on cyclist self-
education, many cycling advocates believe a
large portion of the responsibility of bicycle
safety should also be placed on the shoulders
Juli Elin is one such cycling advocate. She
was hit by a car north of campus Friday, de-
spite her adherence to all cycling laws and
"A bicycle is supposed to be considered a
vehicle, but a lot of cars don't even keep an eye
out for bikes," Elin said. "It's frustrating to be
forced onto a sidewalk by cars plowing through
like you aren't even there."
A special ultraviolet camera makes it
possible to see the underlying skin
damage done by the sun. And since 1 in 5

Plan B delayed
By KENDALL M. SHARP
Alligator Contributing Writer
Gainesville women should not expect to obtain Plan B
emergency contraception without a prescription anytime
soon, despite the Food and Drug Administration's Aug. 24
decision to permit over-the-counter sales.
The only manufacturer of Plan B, Duramed
Pharmaceuticals Inc., will have to repackage the product
and develop new product information before
Public it canbe stocked for over-the-counter use. Plan
Health B is a familiar brand of the morning-after pill
available at the Student Health Care Center.
"It is going to take some time to be imple-
mented and available," said Kristen Lang, president of Vox:
Voices for Planned Parenthood, a UF organization affiliated
with Planned Parenthood.
But women can obtain prescriptions quickly at Planned
Parenthood, 914 NW 13th St., and at the SHCC, said Lang
and SHCC employees.
In August, the SHCC filled about 130 Plan B prescrip-
tions, which was fewer than usual because many students
were away for summer, said pharmacist Linda House.
Phylis Craig, an advanced registered nurse-practitioner
at the SHCC's Women's Clinic, said the SHCC's procedure
for administering Plan B will stay the same for now, but
students can get a prescription over the phone. The SHCC
recommends that women have a consultation to discuss
preventive forms of contraception.
"We prefer to have an encounter with the student,"
Craig said, but the SHCC also recognizes the clock is tick-
According to Planned Parenthood's Web site, emer-
gency contraception has the highest rate of reducing preg-
nancy the sooner it is started and is most effective within 72
hours after intercourse.
Craig recognizes the time factor with Plan B and sug-
gests that students use the SHCC's 24-hour emergency call
line, if they need a prescription for Plan B after hours.
Craig and House hope Plan B will be an over-the-coun-
ter medication by the year's end.
And though students already have easy access to emer-
gency contraception, only one thing is certain, House said:
"For now, it is prescription-only."

Benjamin Franklin said you should "eat to live, not live to
eat." He weighed more than 300 pounds. What a hypocrite.
It's no secret that Americans love food, and lots of it. We'll
take any dish from any cuisine, deep-fry it and serve it with
a side of bacon to go.
But our love affair with food is starting to head south. In
the last 20 years, obesity has shot up to record levels. Our
collective fatness is causing diabetes, hypertension, heart
disease, sleep apnea and the wearing outdoors! of
sweatpants. Good thing UF is on the case. That story and
more in this week's ...
Darts & Laurels
We begin by tossing an it's-the-least-you-could-do LAUREL
to the makers of Pepsi, who donated more than $1 million this
Tuesday to UF's Family Health Self-Empowerment Project. The
project's goal is to reduce obesity among minorities by promot-
ing healthy eating habits which, we can only assume, means
no more Big Gulps.
According to a recent study, carbonated soft drinks are a
leading cause of obesity. Fritos, Cheetos and Doritos the
delicious, rhyming mainstays of PepsiCo's Frito-Lay subsidiary
- probably aren't helping either. So this is a bit like Halliburton
spending money to promote peace, love and understanding.
But we're all for it.
Next, we slide an all-natural, pesticide-free, no-preserva-
tives-added LAUREL to UF's College of Agricultural and Life
Sciences, which is now one of three schools in America to offer
an organic farming major. Whether you think organic produce
is great or a stupid hippie fad, there's one thing you can't deny:
Organic tomatoes cost twice as much as the regular kind. That
means big money for cow-college grads who are wise enough
to sell out. Good for them.
In international news, we flick a don't-be-ridiculous DART
at Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who challenged
George W. Bush to a debate on "world issues and the ways
of solving the problems of the international community" on
Bush declined, of course. As he should have. A debate with
Ahmadinejad would put the president at a huge language dis-
advantage, especially if it was conducted in English. Besides,
"world issues" and "solving problems" aren't exactly in Bush's
Speaking of the president, we fire a you-must-be-joking
DART at the White House, which is mounting a public rela-
tions campaign to convince Americans that George W. Bush is a
"man of letters." No, really.
According to his press secretary, the president is currently
reading "The Stranger," Albert Camus' 1942 masterpiece of
existentialist alienation. Supposedly, it's the latest of 60 that's
five dozen books that Bush has read since January. There's
even a list..
We don't buy it, of course. After all, we're talking about a
man who, by his own-admission, doesn't even read the news-
paper. But who knows, maybe Dick Cheney told him there's a
special "Book It!" program for presidents. Free pizza!
Back in Gainesville, we pass a welcome-to-the-party
LAUREL to Delta Lambda Phi, Gainesville's first fraternity
for gay and bisexual men. Its inaugural.class includes nine stu-
dents from UF and SFCC, and fraternity leaders say they'll add
10,new members every semester. So how can you spot a Delta
Lambda Phi brother on campus, you ask? Hell be the only frat
boy who's not wearing pink.
Finally, in weather news, we throw a sorry-North-Carolina-
but-we're-looking-out-for-No.-1 LAUREL to Tropical Storm

Football ticket lottery slights students
f you want tickets to a UF basketball game, you have
to know when they become available and claim them.
First come, first served. If you want to sit in the front
section, get in line.
In other words, students who want tickets the most
get them. If only getting football tickets was that simple.
Unfortunately, it's not. In fact, in my three years as a
UF student; the process for acquiring student football
tickets has become increasingly blurry.
My first encounter with the UF student ticket policy
was in 2003, watching as my older brother paced around
the house, the phone pinned to his ear, swapping hands
every once in a while to rest an aching arm. He braved
three nights of busy signals before he became a lucky-
enough caller to purchase his tickets. But he persisted,
and his tickets were granted.
Over the past three years the process has been simi-
lar either an online or over-the-phone registration
is required, followed by a lottery. Students are broken
into classes based on their seniority at UF (0-30 credits,
30-60 credits, and so on).
The general notion is that students with more cred-
its receive tickets over those with fewer. Makes sense,
But just from talking to my friends many of whom
didn't receive tickets and listening to people con-
verse loudly on the bus, it's obvious that many deserv-
ing students were denied.
These are the same students who brought UF a vic-
tory at home against Tennessee, who go shirtless and
mindless into the sticky heat, painted and pony-tailed,
battling thirst to avoid purchasing a $4 Gatorade. Many
of these devoted fans will watch UF football in front of
Todd a TV screen this year, their cheers
Portnowitz muffled by the walls.
Speaking Out Weston Russo, a UF sophomore,
put it best: "Football season is the
highlight of my Fall semester," he
said, "So how did I possibly get tickets as a freshman
and not as a sophomore?"
When a committed football fan has lost the ticket lot-
tery, the pain is rubbed in further when a fellow student
- who knows nothing about football, but is simply
bored on Saturdays sits in a true fan's seat.
Now, I'm not proposing a football aptitude test as a
requirement for getting tickets. That would be unfair.
But shouldn't a student and devoted fan be able to
cheer along with his fellow students at the game, no
That.being said, tickets ought to be allocated with
students first in mind. There are 88,548 seats in Ben Hill'
Griffin Stadium. This year, only 21,500 of the 25,000 stu-
dents who entered the lottery received tickets mean-
ing thousands of deserving fans were left out.
With all the brain-power at UF, a simple, reliable,
and fair online ticket registration system seems far from
impossible. If tickets cannot be given to all students
who register, then we just may have to return to the old
method: a single-file line. At least that way, seats would
go to the most deserving.
After all, who is more deserving of tickets than a cur-
rent member of this university? Apparently, the answer
is: visitors and alumni. Now, we all love having our Bull
Gators (and their wallets) in the Swamp with us, but at
the students' expense? That's not fair.
Todd Portnowitz is an English junior.
The views expressed here are not necessarily those of the Alligator.
Today's question: Should UF re-
place its football ticket lottery with
a first-come, first-served system?
Thursday's question: Due to
technical difficulties, results are

SG picks paper ballots for good reason
I heard many harsh noises from
Wednesday's "Election fraud" editorial, and
not much substance.
If the Student Government supervisor of
elections says online voting is unreliable, then
that is the likely reason SG chose paper ballots
for the upcoming election.
Yes, four out of five students voted for
it, but presumably "true" online voting is
synonymous with reliable online voting. Our
votes will have meaning only if it is truly one
vote per.person. It is not "small potatoes," as
the editorial claimed, to have a back door for
someone to abuse the online voting.
Low turnout is a separate issue, indepen-
dent of the online-voting question. Do not
blame fraternity and sorority members for
getting involved in SG they each have one
vote, just like anyone else.
UF students should realize that municipali-
ties do not use online voting because it is un-
reliable. But the integrity of the process is not
compromised with paper ballots.
On a lighter note, I fail to see how I would
still receive a free T-shirt or bumper sticker
while voting online. At least with paper bal-
lots, those who turn out to vote are guaranteed

High rents hurt families worst of all
I constantly read about how higher rents
hurt UF students. What is forgotten is that
they hurt families in Gainesville as well.
There are those of us who live paycheck
to paycheck and can't afford to rent or buy a
house. With the rise in the number of apart-
ment complexes turning condo and charging
over-inflated prices, it's getting harder to live
in Gainesville for almost everyone.
Now more and more residents are being
forced to move to outlying areas because of
this cost which creates new problems, like
a longer commute and more money spent on
My husband and I struggle to make ends
meet, just like most people in Gainesville. At
least UF students are given the option of hous-
ing on campus, unlike Gainesville's regular
residents. I'm not saying living on campus is
great, but at least it's another option students
Students can also get together and split the
cost of rent. Families don't usually have this
option. We are all in this together, whether peo-
ple realize this or not. It's true that Gainesville
wouldn't be Gainesville without the students,
but Gainesville wouldn't be Gainesville with-
out its permanent residents either.

Parties size up SG hopefuls
By JOEY CHINDAMO
Three Student Government political parties spent
Thursday in the Reitz Union, interviewing new SG
hopefuls for the Fall election.
Thursday marked the first
Student day students could sign up to
Government run with one of three parties:
Swamp, Action and Pants.
Parties spent most of the day interviewing potential
candidates, although officials said turnout was rela-
"It's something we see very often the first week
of classes because everyone is still settling into their
schedules and routines," said Student Sen. Josh
Weiss, who oversaw Swamp's interviews.
Ryan Day, a UF junior who interviewed with the
Action Party, said he chose that group because he
admired its "core set of values."
Meanwhile, Pants Party vice presidential candi-
date Bruce Haupt said four students .interviewed
with his organization Thursday.
"There are only so many fantastic and really,
truly special people on this campus, and I think that
we probably got four out of probably the seven of
them," Haupt said.
The parties will continue interviewing candidates
today and Tuesday. Students must bring their Gator
1 Cards to sign up to run.

Attendees at the memorial service sang hymns, and church
pastors spoke about their experiences with Sloan.
Pastor Warren Chesser said Sloan's "humble beginning"
never left him.
"He wanted things to be modest and quiet," Chesser said.
At the end of the service, a piano played as teary-eyed attend-
ees left in silence.

More than 250 people, mostly
employees of companies partici-
pating in the volunteer campaign,
crowded into the Hilton UF
Conference Center for the event.
In the 2006 United Way cam-

and raise money. In Gainesville,
some of the money will go toward
early-childhood education pro-

Tim Goldfarb, Shands

this year's goal of $3.8 million.

UF advances goal
ETHANOL, from page 1
Physical Plant Division.
E-85, the yellow fuel that filled the Taurus
on Thursday, is 85 percent ethanol and 15
percent gasoline "so you can't drink it,"
From now on, UF state-vehicles will
only run on ethanol, said Motor Pool
Superintendent Jon Priest.
Petroleum prices are likely to rise, so the
decision to use ethanol is fiscally and environ-
of on-campus sustainability with ethanol filling station
mentally sound, said Allan Preston, the qual-
ity manager for the physical plant.
Ethanol costs $2.86 per gallon, but UP will
charge its drivers $3.06 in order to earn back
the $34,000 it spent to install the tank.
These changes are all part of the universi-
ty's effort to become a more sustainable cam-
pus, DeLongpre said.
UF is also launching a pilot taxi service for
faculty and staff this month as part of its sus-
"I know where everything is," saidKenneth
J. "K.J." Green, one of the university's two taxi
drivers. "I even know the shortcuts."
In an effort to reduce parking problems
and traffic dogging UF's campus, administra-
tors are also looking into two car rental ser-
vices, Zipcar and Flexcar, for students, faculty
members and Gainesville residents.
Harvard University, the. University of
Michigan and other institutions have already
signed up for the services.
After registering with the companies and
undergoing a background check, students
could reserve cars online and drive on and off
campus for $5 an hour, Preston said.
The university will begin charging state
vehicles $3,000 a year to park on campus, in an
effort to encourage UF divisions to pool their
vehicles and maximize their mileage.
The rate is "intentionally harsh," Preston
Additionally, officials hope the move will
open up parking spaces for students and fac-'
ulty, he said.

ability effort," O'Brien said. "It's so your kids

field. They're on their way of being one of the
toughest football teams around."
Meyer and his coaches endlessly preach
the following gospel: Trust and love the
player next to you, and you won't want to let
him down on the football field.
Measuring how much this mentality can
help a team in games is impossible. But deny-
ing that it does would be foolish.
Meyer's no-nonsense"attitude should help
"Look at [tailback].DeShawn Wynn as a
perfect example," Bates said. "It took him a
'This is the way it works
now. It's coach's way or the
highway.' I think you're
S- going to see more and
S" more of that until that's all
these kids know and that's
'm I all you see out of Florida
W ynn football players."
Wynn For the first time in his
career, Wynn has Meyer's approval and a
potential breakout season ahead of him.
Receivers Dallas Baker and Kenneth
Tookes had slim odds of graduating before
Meyer arrived; both have turned around their
academics and should have solid seasons.
Defensive end Jarvis Moss' body was
withering away along with his grades and
social life under former coach Ron Zook.
Now? His marks are fine and he could post
Then there's linebacker Brian Crum and
cornerback Tremaine McCollum two
prized recruits who had rotted on the side-
lines for the past three seasons. Crum will
start at linebacker while McCollum will split
starting time with Ryan Smith at corerback.
Because players respect Meyer, they have
begun acting responsibly and managing their
own problems before they can spiral out of
"I hear them saying things that coaches
usually say," Meyer said. "I hear them talk-
ing about unselfish play; I hear them policing
things; I see things in the locker room, so I
don't have to come over and take care of busi-
ness. I also see a comfort level in year two."
Though Southern Miss is a solid team,
the Gators should handle it throughout the
course of the game. What remains to be seen
is what will follow. Can Meyer's family envi-
ronment of trust and respect help the Gators
during SEC play?
"I think it's going to get back to the point
where teams will know they're going teget
their noses bloodied a little bit when they
play the Gators," Bates said.

Brett Favre, we here at alligatorSports salute you.
Now, lets introduce this week's other pickers.
Leading off this week is our sports editor/Fact Error King,
Louis "I could run this whole section by myself" Anastasis,
who just might have to if he continues to torture the rest of the
staff with his hideous music selection. His mp3 player nearly
exploded one day when he simultaneously tried to download
David Hasselhoff and Hilary Duff.
Batting in the two hole is staff writer/hair stylist's night-
mare, Antonio "If you're an athlete and use the word 'ass' on
Facebook, I will write about it" Gonzalez, whose next story
involves exposing the obesity of UF's linemen.
Hitting third is assistant sports editor/nervous freak Bryan
"I only wore my smelly puke gray T-Shirt to football practice
because my wifebeater was dirty" Jones, who recently pur-
chased three magazines on fantasy flyfishing.
Batting cleanup is staff writer/John Mayer's interest on the
side, Dan "Talk to me the wrong way and I will give you the
Satan stare" Treat, who swears he will go to the gym as soon as
he is done eating Pokey Stix and chugging Mountain Dew.
Hitting in the No. 69 position behind No. 15 is
alligatorSports.org editor, Nick "I wet my bed for Tebow"
Zaccardi, who continues to try to put a hit on Chris Leak's life.

College football is back, and that can
only mean one thing time for the al-
ligatorSports Brand Picks Column.
So in recognition of the UF's first
opponent, we've decided to honor the
greatest player in Southern Miss history
- Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett
Favre. We could have talked to Favre,
but we had a better idea.
Instead, we spoke.to the one person
who has Inore dirt on the three-time
NFLMost Valuable Player than anyone:
his college roommate.
During their first year at Southern
Miss, offensive lineman Chris Ryals
and Favre thought they were going to
So one night before a matchup with
Tulane, the duo did what.every warm-
olooded American would do in that
situation get trashed.
"Wi stayed up 'til 2 or 3 in the morn-
ing doing things we shouldn't be do-
ing, and lo and behold, we're playing
1 o'clock in the afternoon," Ryals said.
"And I see him throw up, and he's got
the worst hangover ever."
So Favre was a little groggy. But it's
not like you have to be in good shape to
sit on the sidelines. Right?
"We're doing nothing on offense.
We're down by a couple touchdowns.
Then out of desperation, [Coach Curley
Hallman] calls [Favre]," Ryals said.
"He's white as a sheep. Hungover.
In true Favre fashion, he entered
the game and threw three touchdown
passes, Ryals said.
"He had the same breath whether
you were in the huddle with him or
whether you were hitting the town
with him. He was the same guy 24
hours a day"
According to Ryals, Favre never let a
little thing like room service bills get in
che way of enjoying some "cold ones."
"I don't know if the bill was marked
as 'miscellaneous' or what," Ryals said.

Gators set to play in Canada
Alligator File Photo
Coach Billy Donovan unofficially commences his defense of UF's
national championship when the Gators play in Canada.
Coach hopes to
break players in
By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
Rather than moose or caribou, Gators are going to
be roaming north of the border this weekend.
Taking advantage of an NCAA. rule that allows
teams to make a preseason international trip once
every four years, the UF men's basketball team will
be playing a pair of exhibition games this weekend
"I am not looking for us to be in playing shape;
I am looking to implement, get things in and have
us work on things in our offense, defense and press
,zones," Coach Billy Donovan said. "I want to treat it
like practice, but at the same point, I have to be some-
what sensitive that these guys have not really been in
a full practice since April. That is a long time for me
to expect them to be in that kind of condition."
The Gators tip off against Brock at 7 p.m. on
Saturday and will face Guelph at 4 p.m. on Sunday.
The games will'be played in St. Catherines, which
is located 10 minutes outside of Niagara Falls.
The tour is a make-up of sorts after a similar
trip to the Bahamas was canceled due to Hurricane
Frances in 2004.
The real value of the tour, however, was the 10
practices that Donovan and his staff were able to get
in before the Gators head north.
Due to NCAA rules, coaches aren't permitted to
work out their players in the off-season, and the prac-
tices have given the Gators a head start as they look
to repeat as NCAA champions.
Aside from the extra practice and the Canadian
tour, an NCAA rule change now allows coaches to
have some limited contact with their players before
practice officially opens Oct. 15.
"I am not looking for us to be in playing
shape; I am looking to implement, get
things in and have us work on things in our
offense, defense and press zones."
UF men's basketball coach
"We can now bring our whole team in for indi-
vidual workouts," Donovan said. "You get two hours
a week starting Sept. 15, so although we have this
trip, we still have some team things we can do in
September as well. It's not like when this trip ends
we can't do anything ever again as a team until Oct.
NO ONE AND DONE: It has been speculated throughout
the fall that prep stars O.J. Mayo and Bill Walker may be
interested in attending UF next year.
But both players would likely be jumping directly to
the NBA if the new minimum-age rule hadn't come into
effect last year. Donovan said he really doesn't want
someone who is only going to be around for a year.
"I'm probably not interested in a guy who's telling
me on the phone that, 'Coach, I'm coming for one year.
and I'm gone. I just want to go to a place where I can
play and showcase what I can do and enhance my draft
status and go pro,'" Donovan said.

With all due respect to the teams that
the Gators had under Ray Graves or in the
1980s, the Spurrier era defines UF football.
Not only did he take the football team
to heights that have never been and likely
won't be reached again (can you imagine
a team winning six conference titles in a
decade Low?), he also raised the national
profile of the university.
Like it or not, the public faces of large
universities are the school's athletic pro-
grams, and Spurrier putting a winner on the
field made UF a household name, inspiring
little kids to someday attend the school.
And how does Spurrier himself feel he'll
be treated upon his arrival?.
