AROUND UF

'96 team honored before kickoff

By ANTONIO GONZALEZ
Alligator Staff Writer
agonzalez@alligator.org

It felt like 1996 again in the
Swamp, if only for a moment.
Steve Spurrier was there. Danny
Wuerffel, Ike Hilliard and Jacquez
Green were too.
As was the rest of the 1996
national championship team,
which was honored before kickoff
Saturday with a standing ovation
and a highlight video commemorat-
ing the finest year of UF football.
But while the Gators honored
"Oil- 1996, they almost let 2006 slip by.
Down a touchdown just 2:23
into the game, most of the 90,043
fans jammed into Ben Hill Griffin
Stadium became anxious. The
Gators would answer the call,
smothering the Golden Eagles with
defense including interceptions
by three different, defensive backs
en route to a 34-7 win. But the
day's celebrations began before the
game.
Spurrier, head coach of the '96
Gators and current coach of South
Carolina, was given a booming 30-
second ovation. He was all smiles
during the pregame festivities.
"All the guys seem to be
doing well, most all of them
are married and have kids,"
Spurrier said. "We have a chance to
relive it 10 years later. But we also
get to celebrate it every day for the
rest of our lives."

lenniler Harnish Alligaror Gamecocks against the Gators

Primary hauls


hopefuls to UF

By DOMINICK TAO
Alligator Writer
dtao@alligator.org

The crowd outside the Beta Theta Pi Fraternity
house on Fraternity Drive slowly migrated toward
the center of the front lawn.
"Let's take a picture. Collars down, guys," some-
body yelled.
It was almost noon on Saturday
the Gators' first game day of the
school year and the brothers
were about to pose with Walter
"Skip" Campbell, a candidate for
state attorney general.
With statewide primary elec-
tions today, several candidates saw
ampbell the football frenzy of Gainesville's
Labor Day weekend as more than just a chance to
tailgate: It was a key stop on the campaign trail.
Campbell, a state senator running for state at-
torney general, didn't fly to Gainesville on Saturday
just for snapshots with his old fraternity.
"A UF football game is actually an opportu-
nity to reach out to voters across the state," said
Jeffrey Garcia, Campbell's campaign manager.
"[Thousands of] alumni come to Gainesville from
all over Florida."
A Florida politician surrounded by the confetti
of tailgating alumni and students is also an image
candidates and their managers are eager to project.
"I'll buy two subscriptions of your newspaper
if you get a photographer out here," Garcia told a
reporter.
Thirty minutes later at Leonardo's Pizza by the
Slice on University Avenue, Alex Sink, a former

GAME DAY
Arrests up at season's start
Football season is back, and
more student fans are getting into
trouble than in previous years.
Fifteen UF students were ar-
rested at the Ben Hill Griffin
Stadium on Saturday, according to
a University Police press release.
That's three times the number
of students arrested during the
2005 opening game against the
University of Wyoming.
Police arrested and/or ejected
113 people at the game, the press
release said. Of that total, 19 were
arrested, including 15 UF students.
The number of arrests has been
on the rise for the last two years.
According to UPD archives, 60
people were ejected and eight were
arrested at the opening game last
year. All the arrests were alcohol-
related, police said.
And in 2004, 18 people were
ejected and three students were ar-
rested at the opening game against
Eastern Michigan University. The
arrests were for alcohol violations

and disorderly conduct, police
said.
At Saturday's game, there
were four arrests for.. open
containers, nine arrests for pos-
session of alcohol, two arrests
for disorderly conduct, and one
arrest each for trespassing, in-
toxication, resisting arrest'with
violence and aggravated assault.

Christian fraternity finds
own gathering place
Kappa Upsilon Chi is fi-
nallygetting a place to call home
- sort of.
The Christian fraternity re-
.cently got a house of its own near
UF's Sorority Row, but the broth-
ers of Kappa Upsilon Chi do not
actually own their house.
"That's why we don't have
letters up," said fraternity
president Josh Czupryk. "It's not
registered with the university
because we don't want it to be
an insurance risk for UF, and we
don't want it to be an insurance
risk for Kappa Chi."
The house, which a private-
property owner rents to nine
of the brothers with individual
leases, serves as a central meet-
ing location and a venue for
fraternity events.
"We thought this was a natu-
ral move as far as the expansion
process and where we were
going with our ministry on this
campus," Czupryk said.
The fraternity wants to hold
its weekly chapter meeting at the
house, as well as make it a place
where members can relax in a
Christian atmosphere.
"It seems more like a home,"
said Craig Blocher, a.freshman
pledge in Kappa Chi. "It makes it
seem more of a group that way."

DAVID AND ".'-W J;A"4-'4ALL

Scholarship fund created in UF brothers' memory


By LINDSEY FRANCO
Alligator Writer
Ifranco@alligator.org


About 200 people gathered Friday af-
ternoon to share memories about two UF
brothers remembered as ambitious students
and avid sports fans.
David and Brian Marshall were killed
last month when their car lost control on
Interstate 95. David, 39, and Brian, 31, had
been driving back to Gainesville from their
mother's home in Massachusetts.


At the UF memorial at the Normal Hall
courtyard, friends arid family shared stories
of the brothers' love for the Boston Red Sox
and their generous natures.
"They gave a lot more than they were
ever willing to take," said Elias Sarkis, a
close friend of the brothers.
Both Marshall brothers were students
in UF's department of counselor educa-
tion, a graduate program in the College of
Education. David Marshall,was pursuing
a doctorate, and Brian Marshall a master's
degree.


"They gave a lot more than they
were ever willing to take."
Ellas Sarkis
friend of Marshall brothers

Outside their academic endeavors, the
brothers had been working on the Florida
Center for Performance Excellence a
program that would apply the principles of
counseling to athletic performance.
In his speech, Sarkis urged members of


the counseling education department to
maintain and improve the department's
quality and make it the No. 1 program of
its type in the country a goal he said the
Marshall brothers would have wanted.
Harry Daniels, chairman of UF's de-
partment of counselor education, said the
department created a fund to honor the
brothers' memory.
The David and Brian Marshall Memorial
Fund will grant $500 each year to a student
who gives back to the Gainesville commu-
nity.

Before Gator football fans cel-'
ebrated their victory Saturday, ticket
scalpers celebrated their first chance


to legally resell tickets for UF foot-
ball games.
Reselling or "scalping" a ticket
for more than $1 above its original
value was once a misdemeanor in
Florida. A law that went into effect
July 1 revoked the policy and legal-
ized ticket resale at any price.
But because UF policy prohibits
solicitation of any kind on campus,

New vice president kicks back between SG, school


* ARTURO ARMAND BRINGS
CUBAN STYLE TO SG OFFICE.

By JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Writer
jdasilva@alligator.org

Though law school and Student
Government leave little room for
leisure during the week, Student
Body Vice President Arturo
Armand is more than ready to
have fun by Friday night.
"When I'm working, I enjoy it, I
like it," Armand said. "But it's nice
at the end of the day to just kick
back with (my friends). I grew up
with three sisters and no brothers,
so I see them as my brothers."
Armand was instated as
Student Body vice president last
week. His new role as SG's No. 2
official will probably leave little
time for social activities.
But on Friday night, he sat
down for dinner at Emiliano's Caf6
and awaited the arrival of four of
his friends from high school.
"We run on Cuban time,"
Armand said as he waited for his
dinner companions. "When I say
9:30, it actually means 9:45 to 10."
When his friends arrived at
10:15 p.m., Armand stood up from

the table to shake their hands and
gave them each a quick pat on the
back. He did the same when his
roommate arrived later.


Everyone ordered small plat-
ters of food and later created mix-
and-match dinner plates with each
other's food.


Armand and his four friends
attended Belen Jesuit Preparatory
School in Miami, said his friend
Jesus Suarez. Like Armand, he is a

Their former school was origi-
nally founded in Havana more
than 100 years ago.
"Our most notable alumnus is
Fidel Castro," Suarez said, adding
that students at the school have "a
strong sense of community."
That sense became increasingly
apparent as the longtime friends
laughed, told stories, recalled
memories and discussed Gator
football.
Armand said he and his friends
start tailgating at 9 a.m. on game
days. They bring toasters and
furniture to the Reitz Union and
make breakfast. Later, they make
lunch and hang out until the game
begins and sit together.
"It's been a tough week,"
Armand said Friday. "For the most
part, it's been a little tough getting
together with my friends."
But at dinner, Armand was too
busy enjoying the company to
think about the tough week he'd
just endured.
"I come from a tight-knit
background in terms of family
and friends," Armand said. "My
friends are my backbone. I think
that's what's keeping me sane
right now."

Smith to boost teachers' salaries


Schools a high priority for Crist


By MELISSA JACOBS
Alligator Writer

Born in Pennsylvania and raised in
St. Petersburg, Republican gubernato-
rial candidate Charlie Crist learned the
importance of public service early in
life.
As a child, Crist admired his father's
tenure on the Pinellas County School
Board and was inspired to serve as cass
president of St.. Petersburg High School,
and later, as Student Body vice president
at Florida'State University.
As a candidate for governor, Crist is
determined to raise the statewide high-
school graduation rate, lower taxes and
promote public safety, according to an
e-mail from his deputy press secretary,
Erin Isaac.
Crist also plans to work for college
students. Graduates pour into the work-
force each year, and Crist plans to create
a business-friendly environment for
them, according to the e-mail.
"Florida's economic development
and ability to attract diverse, high-pay-
ing industries to the state is one of the
most important issues facing college
students today," the e-mail states.
As attorney general, Crist worked to
have parents informed if their daugh-
ters were having abortions. A staunch
conservative, he openly denounces gay
marriage and has said that, if elected,
he will support a constitutional amend-
ment that defines marriage as an institu-


tion between a man and a woman.
Crist also wants to maintain high
standards in Florida's high schools and
aims to increase the graduation rate to
95 percent by the year 2015, according
to the e-mail.
He said he wants to ensure that ev-
ery high school graduate is ready for
the workforce, career training or college
upon graduation.
He also wants to increase teacher
salaries and provide
every school in Florida
with reading coaches
to ensure statewide
I educational. success,
i,- __ thee-mail states.
S'Crist has focused
I $~ another area of his
Crist campaign on the
importance of public
safety. He plans to pass the Anti-Murder
Act, which proposes to lock up more
violent-felony offenders who violate
probation, according to the e-mail.
He also wants to increase penalties
for sexual predators and raise the num-
ber of state officers and prosecutors who
protect children from such crimes.
Crist's background as attorney gen-
eral has prepared him for the position of
governor, according to the e-mail.
"As attorney general, we have
fought for the common man, for the
safety of our children, for seniors, for
every Floridian regardless of their race,
creed, color or sex," the e-mail states.

Democratic candidate Rod Smith is
determined to bring the needs of col-
lege students to the forefront of the up-
coming 2006 gubernatorial elections.
Smith, an Alachua resident and
* Gainesville's representative in the state
Senate, graduated from UF's Levin
College of Law in 1975.
"Rod Smith is a unique candidate
because he comes from the Gainesville
area, has a history with the University
of Florida and is looking out for the
interests of the entire community," said
David Kochman, Smith's campaign
communications director.
Smith is promising to win back
moderate and independent voters
without compromising the ideals of
the Democratic Party.
After Smith graduated from law
school, he spent 17 years as a labor
lawyer, representing firefighters, police
officers and other working Floridians.
He was elected as the 8th Judicial
Circuit State Attorney in 1992 and
earned national recognition after
successfully prosecuting Gainesville
student serial killer Danny Rolling two
years later.
Rolling was sentenced to death after
being convicted for the murders of five
Gainesville students in 1990.
Smith was elected to the Florida
Senate in 2000 and was re-elected in
2002 after running unopposed.
If he is elected as governor, Smith


plans to make college education in
Florida affordable to more people and
promote a healthy job market, said
Kochman.
He has also issued a plan to boost
teacher salaries into the top half of
the nation by dedicating almost $700
million in state revenue, creating an
8.5 percent average raise for teachers,
according to his Web site.
"The next set of elected leaders will
have a dramatic impact on the lives of
young people, and this is the time for
them to take control of the state as well
as the country," Kochman said. "Rod's
campaign is built
around their input
and support"
Smith served as
an adjunct profes-
sor with UF's Levin
College of Law,
teaching Advanced
Smith Criminal Practice
and Trial Practice
courses while supervising the prosecu-
tion clinic.
A father of two Gator graduates and
one current UF student, Smith has both
personal and professional ties to the
university.
"Above and beyond everything
else, Rod Smith is a Gator at heart,"
Kochman said. "In fact, Rod repeatedly
told his children growing up that they
could go anywhere they wanted for
college, but that his money was going
to the University of Florida regard-
less."


Davis believes in young voters' involvement


By MELISSA JACOBS
Alligator Writer

A fourth-generation Floridian,
Democratic candidate Jim Davis is com-
mitted to bringing new leadership and
change to the state in the 2006 gubernato-
rial elections.
"There is a clear choice in the Democratic
party for governor: someone who has
spent the last 17 years strongly committed
to improving public education in Florida,"
said Josh Earnest, Davis' campaign com-,
munications director. "There are issues of
serious consequence being debated in this
election, and Jim Davis will be a governor
to look out for the long-term interests of all
Floridians."
A Tampa native, Davis earned a
bachelor's degree from Washington
and Lee University, and later graduated
from UF's Levin College of Law. He re-
turned to Tampa to practice law in 1982
and was elected to the Florida House of
Representatives in 1988.
As Majority Leader of the Florida House
of Representatives in the mid-1990s, Davis
united teachers, principals, parents and
community leaders in addressing large
class sizes in Florida, according to his Web
site.
And his commitment to improv-
ing education extends to the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test.
"Jim believes that the FCAT should be


used as a diagnostic aid to help teachers,
parents and students, instead of being
exploited by politicians as a weapon to fur-
ther punish students and schools," Earnest
said.
As a. gubernatorial candidate, Davis
also hopes to increase wages statewide,
Earnest said.
"Ten to 15 years ago, Florida was con-
sidered to be a low-wage, low-cost state,"


Davis


Earnest said. "However,
after the raise in tuition
rates, gas prices and prop-
erty costs, Florida has be-
come more of a high-cost,
low-wage state. Jim is
determined to change this,
bringing well-paying jobs
to Floridians and invest-


ing in the workforce."
Davis is endorsed by the Sierra Club
and has fought in Congress to prevent off-
shore oil drilling. He believes young voters
will get involved in this election because so
many of the issues at stake will have a last-
ing impact on them.
"When it came time for Jim to announce
his candidacy, he felt that for too long, poli-
ticians have been on the side of special in-
terest groups," Earnest said. "Other candi-
dates are asking voters to send them back
to Tallahassee to do more of the same. Jim
is asking them to send him to Tallahassee
to make a change to make a difference."

Primary primer

Make an informed

choice in today's vote
In case you forgot or never knew in the first place to-
day is your last chance to vote in this year's primary elec-
tion. As is our solemn duty, the Alligator reminds you to
get off your ass and contribute to the democratic process.
We know, we know. Its hot outside. You're still nursing a
Labor Day hangover. Voting is for losers and old people. All
true.
But today, with election-watchers predicting a paltry 35 per-
cent turnout, your vote could really mean something. And there
are a handful of interesting races this year with ramifications
at the local, state and national level.
Let's start with the Republicans.
Rep. Katherine Harris, the Sarasota congresswoman who
oversaw the 2000 presidential election recount as Florida secre-
tary of state, is running for her party's U.S. Senate nomination.
Today, she faces three other Republicans the strongest of
whom is Will McBride, an Orlando lawyer.
Like Harris, McBride takes a conservative line on everything
from abortion to stem cell research to immigration reform.
Like Harris, he is an evangelical Christian. But unlike Harris,
McBride is honest, sane and most importantly capable
of giving voters a credible alternative to incumbent Sen. Bill
Nelson this November. The Alligator endorses McBride.
In the gubernatorial race, Republican voters face a similar
choice. State Attorney General Charlie Crist, the front-runner, is
a moderate who supports gay civil unions, earned legalization
for illegal immigrants and grudgingly a woman's right to
choose.
His opponent, Florida Chief Financial Officer Tom Gallagher,
is essentially Katherine Harris minus the eye shadow. He sup-
ports broad restrictions on abortion, relaxed gun control and
a_ constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage. We
endorse Crist.
Now for the Democrats.
In the gubernatorial primary, Tampa Rep. Jim Davis faces
state Sen. Rod Smith of Alachua. Both are moderate, middle-of-
the-road Democrats with years of experience in Florida politics.
Both are excellent campaigners.
But Davis' platform which suggests pooling Florida's
resources with those of other states to negotiate lower prescrip-
tion-drug prices, for example impresses us with its common-
sense approach. He gets our endorsement.
In the race for Alachua County Sheriff, four experienced cops
square off for the opportunity to challenge Republican Emery
Gainey in November's general election. Any one of them would
be a good change of pace from departing Sheriff Steve Oelrich,
whose reign of almost 15 years alienated the sheriff's office from
the Gainesville Police.
But we like Sadie Damell, a GPD veteran whose ties to
UF run deep. After the 1990 student murders, she spoke for
the Gainesville Police in national press conferences and in-
terviews. Since then, she's been the department's community
liaison, working closely with local groups like the Gainesville
Commission on the Status of Women. Damell is the right can-
didate to bring the sheriff's office and voters closer together. We
endorse her.
Of course, if you're not registered to vote in Gainesville or
not registered to vote at all our endorsements won't do you
much good. But what are you waiting for? The general election
is only nine weeks away, and the clock is ticking.
Besides, registering to vote is easy just go to http://
elections.alachua.fl.us, print out the registration form and drop
it off at the Supervisor of Elections Office on First Avenue. All
you need is a driver's license and your Gator 1 Card.
But you knew that. Why, you're probably at your local poll-
ing station right now, reading the Alligator as you wait in line.
Happy voting!

UF's green policies
t's pretty obvious by now that global warming is a
major problem. It's also obvious that not enough is be-
ing done to combat it here in America, where the Bush
administration continues to promote lax environmental
standards. It may be true that Bush has passed more en-
vironment-related bills than any previous president, but
nearly all of them have weakened environmental policies
put into place by previous administrations.
In fact, The New York Times reported last Thursday
that the National Park Service was only recently able to
restore its conservation policy after years of political
gains at the expense of the environment to the level it
was when President Clinton left office.
The slogan for sustainability and environmentally
friendly policy is, "Think globally, act locally."
So what are we doing to promote sound energy policy
and conservation at UF? Luckily, we are doing something.
Unfortunately, we could be doing much more.
Many steps have been taken toward reducing the
university's environmental footprint. For example, UF's
first lady, Chris Machen, is turning the President's Home
into a model home of sustainable energy use. For his part,
President Bernie Machen has vowed to make UF carbon-
neutral by 2030 meaning any carbon emissions will be
offset by efforts to process carbon dioxide back into oxy-
gen, like planting trees.
Perhaps the most important step so far has been last
Thursday's opening of the ethanol fuel station on campus.
However, there is still more to be done.
UF spends almost $75,000 a day on electricity. It doesn't
take a math major to realize that is a lot of money. It's also
a lot of electricity, amounting to about 550 million pounds
of emitted carbon per year. And this is where we're not
doing enough.


a good beginning
l So much electricity is wasted on
campus. But with a few easy modi-
fications, we can greatly reduce
our wasteful electricity use.
The lights in many UF class-
rooms and administration build-
Jessica Holland ings are left on 24 hours a day,
Jess Suggests year-round. During football sea-
son, so are the lights in Ben Hill
Griffin Stadium.
UF should place timers in these buildings that auto-
matically turn the lights off when they're not in use and
the temperature up, since heating and cooling systems
account for more than 50 percent of the university's elec-
tricity use.
The dorms should also be a part of reducing electricity
use. At several universities around the country, includ-
ing Williams College in Massachusetts, dorms compete
against one another in contests to see which will use the
least electricity over the course of a semester. UF could cre-
ate a similar program. Students could then further offset
carbon emissions by participating in campus beautifica-
tion projects, such as planting trees around campus.
UF's sustainability campaign is taking steps in the right
direction, but there is still work to be done. The university
should expand its efforts so the faculty can participate as
well.
In fact, there is no reason UF shouldn't be.doing this.
It would be a win-win situation for the environment, for
UF's pocketbook and for the education of the people who
will be most able to affect environmental policy locally
- and globally for the next several decades.

Cell phones ruin common sense, common courtesy alike


On April 3, 1983, Martin
Cooper placed a call while
strolling the streets of New
York City. The voice on the other
end? Cooper's rival, Joel Engel,
head of research at AT&T Bell Labs.
Both men raced to be the first to
make a phone call in public on a
"mobile phone."
Cooper's win was pos-
sible thanks to the creation of the
Motorola DynaTAC 8000X the
first cell phone that became avail-
able to the public.
However, 22 years later, the
question remains: Did Cooper really
win? Did we? All signs point to no.


As is so often the case, a techno-
logical step forward has meant two
steps backward in terms of common
courtesy. The cell phone practically
defines this phenomenon.
It seems that as the years prog-
ress, cell phones are becoming more
and more of a necessity and
common sense is becoming an af-
terthought.
When Cooper introduced the
world to the first cell phone, he also
unleashed on it an uncontrollable
monster. There's no denying it. As
our knowledge of cell phones and
our familiarity with their use has
grown, Americans have lost touch
with the finer points of everyday


Carmen life.

and all the way back to red before
she decides to stomp on the gas and
shoot through the intersection, leav-
ing the 15 cars behind her waiting
for the next light change.
'Why? Because she was on the
phone.
And now those 15 people stuck
behind her are late for work-but at
least it's for a good reason. Now the


lady on the phone knows that Kiefer
Sutherland won an Emmy.
Or imagine the young lady who
stops dead in the middle of a busy
crosswalk, oblivious to the "Don't
Walk" sign, only to dig through her
entire backpack.
What's she looking for? You
guessed it her cell phone. How
can she possibly hear the ring over
the sound of screeching tires, any-
way?
And then there is the guy in the
movie theater who assumes that,
"Please turn off your cell phones," is
a message that pertains to everyone
except him. What was supposed to
be a movie becomes a ringtone rap

Letters to the Editor
Boot camp death must be remembered
Does anyone remember Martin Lee
Anderson? I have not forgotten him since I
saw the video footage of the 14-year-old be-
ing beaten and suffocated by guards at a Bay
County boot camp run by the state. Although
an initial autopsy report indicated he died
from sickle-cell anemia, a subsequent report
found that the teen was brutally suffocated


by corrections officers at the Panhandle boot
camp.
That second autopsy report was released
in May months after Gov. Jeb Bush as-
signed the case to Hillsborough County State
Attorney Mark Ober.
Martin died Jan. 6. To date, eight months
later, no charges have been filed. If Boulder
law enforcement can bring John Mark Karr all


the way from Thailand for nothing then
how hard can it be to bring someone to justice
when the incident was videotaped and broad-
cast to the public?
Ten years after her death, America hasn't
forgotten JonBenet Ramsey. But what about
Martin Lee Anderson? His death is not just
about race or politics or a flawed juvenile jus-
tice system, but about a family that has lost a


child and deserves justice.
The Legislature took a step in the right
direction by dosing the military-style boot
camps, but calling their decision the "Martin
Lee Anderson Act" is not enough.
I still haven't forgotten Martin. I hope you
won't either.

ELECTIONS 2006

Students asked to end weekend with primary vote


By JESSICA PALOMBO
Alligator Contributing Writer

Returning to school after a Labor Day
weekend full of Gator football and family
barbecues, many Gainesville residents may
not have voting on their minds.
Partially due to the unusual weekend,
many registered voters will likely not vote, UF
and election officials said.
"Well be lucky in a primary election if we
see 25 percent of registered voters," said Daniel
A. Smith, a UF political science professor.


Smith said the student voter turnout might
be particularly low because many register
where they grew up not where they live.
Although absentee ballots are an option,
many students aren't aware, don't have time
or simply don't care enough to overcome that
hurdle, he said.
It's not unusual to only have 10 percent of
students vote, Smith said, adding that college
students turn out in greater numbers than 18-
to 25-year-olds who don't go to school.
Alachua County Supervisor of Elections
Pam Carpenter is optimistic, however.


"We'll be lucky in a primary elec-
tion if we see 25 percent of regis-
tered voters."
Daniel A. Smith
UF political science professor

"The University of Florida has always been
very involved in getting people students
- to vote," she said.
Of the county's 71 voting precincts, three
are on UF's campus. Historical returns from


these precincts have shown that some stu-
dents do take the time to vote, especially in
larger elections, she said.
"It shows that students are motivated to
vote in elections that are statewide or nation-
al," Carpenter said.
But she also said the voting turnout of stu-
dents this year may be lowered by the football
game and the Labor Day holiday weekend.
Some students dodged Labor Day distrac-
tions by voting early, said Bob Schnable, assis-
tant clerk at the Supervisor of Elections Office.


College debt means larger classes, fewer funds for UF students


DEBT, from page 1


gion departments will see reduced
funding over the next five years,
he said.
UF's Center for Gerontological
Studies is already dosed, and some
UF research centers need to become
more self-sufficient, Sullivan said.
He encouraged'faculty members
to teach more classes and bring
more outside research dollars into


the college. In an interview, he said
none of-the college's faculty mem-
bers would be laid off..
But many of the attendees still
weren't pleased with Sullivan's
plans.
"The burden is being placed on
us to do more with less," said phi-
losophy professor Tom Auxter after
the meeting.
CLAS is the largest college at
UF, and Auxter said the UF admin-
istration or the Florida Legislature


should step up in-der to help the
college out of debt so it doesn't have
to cut its resources.
H e
UF addedthat
Administration compared
to other
colleges within the Association of
American Universities, a prestigious
group of research institutions, CLAS
has just one-half to three-quarters
the number of faculty members.
Sullivan also said that individual


contract promises for faculty mem-
bers which can deal with research
money, travel expenses and equip-
ment are no longer guaranteed.
"If I [decided not to honor my
contract], I would be fired," said
Trysh Travis, a women's studies
professor, after the meeting.
Several faculty members said
the new policies could represent
a breach of contract, but officials
could not confirm that information
by press time.


Travis said some faculty mem-
bers, such as humanities professors,
would have trouble bringing in re-
search funds for the college.
Just because a program is not
considered practical doesn't mean
it's not important, she said.
"Their value can't really be mea-
sured by what grant money they
bring in," she said.
"If that's what the criterion is,"
she added, "then many of the hu-
manities might wither up and die."

Spurrier to all members of '96 championship team: I love all you Gators forever


REUNION, from page 1

on Nov. 11 in Gainesville, was
given a standing ovation in the
O'Connell Center and later in
the stadium that he named the
Swamp.
Eighty-four players, 23 staff
members and three coaches,


including Spurrier, were among
those from the championship
team who attended.
No player seemed happier
than former UF receiver Jacquez
Green, who was in high spirits
with his old teammates.
Green said the cama-
raderie of the team is
what he missed the most.


"The closeness of the team
- it really showed," Green said.
"Especially after we got beat up
at FSU. We had just lost, and to
come right back the next week
and win the SEC and then the
national championship, that was
Sthe great thing."
Green, who played five years
in the NFL and has since retired


due to a chronic groin injury, said
the current program is headed
back to greatness.
During his speech at the
O'Connell Center, the 01' Ball
Coach recounted his fondest
memories as leader of Gator
Nation, saying he cherished ev-
ery moment of it.
"I believe this was a team


of destiny the chosen one,"
Spurrier said in his speech. "I
love all you Gators forever."
Players and coaches alike
picked up right were they left off
- cracking jokes and telling sto-
ries reliving the glory days.

assembly

* THE ASIAN-AMERICAN
STUDENT UNION WELCOMED
NEW STUDENTS TO UF.

BYALEX TIEGEN ,
Alligator Writer
atiegen@alligator.org

Break-dancers joined martial
artists to show students the clubs
and resources available for Asian-
American students at UF.
More than 1,000 guests attend-
ed the Asian American Student
Assembly Friday in the Reitz
Union's Grand Ballroom, where
ancient practices were re-enacted
with modem flourishes.
Dennis Ngin, president of the
Asian American Student Union,
said he wanted students to re-
member the sacrifices of their im-
migrant ancestors and make wise
use of their time at college.
"We wanted to show them that
graduation was just around the
corer," Ngin
Multicultural said.
_' ...... The star of the
show was Harry,
a fictional Asian-American student
graduating from UF. Performers
acted out Harry's flashbacks as
he remembered the groups he was
involved with.
Break-dancers from the
Korean Undergraduate Student
Association flipped and spun
on stage. Masked members of Pi
Delta Psi Fraternity dressed as
interconnected marionettes, and
they ended the dance by breaking
their strings.
Most of the performances
crossed traditional and modem
cultures, a mix many guests might
have experienced while growing
up, Ngin said.
"It's part of the whole dichot-
omy of being Asian-American,"
he said.
In one scene, a man with an um-
brella killed a warrior with his own
spear. Students in the Vietnamese
Student Organization dressed up
in a traditional wide-eyed lion
costume draped with chains and
danced to hip-hop music.
Freshman Jennifer Raquipo,
an American-bor Filipino, at-
tended the assembly to learn about
kung-fu clubs on campus and get
involved with the Filipino Student
Association. She felt it was impor-
tant to connect with the Filipino
culture that distinguishes her from
other students at UF.
"Sometimes you just miss the
food," she said. "There aren't re-
ally many Filipino restaurants."
The show, organized by AASU
and sponsored by the Dean of
Students Office, Gator Nights and
Student Government, cost about
$2,300.

GREEK LIFE

Kickball cashes in


By MELISSA THOMPSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

Like troops headed into battle,
about 250 UF sorority members
marched down Fraternity Row
on Sunday to channel their inner
schoolchild and play kickball for
a good cause.
Twenty-one teams of women
invaded Lake Alice Field to com-
pete in the second annual Kyle
Schuemann Memorial Kickball
Tournament, hosted by Theta Chi
Fraternity.
Schuemann was a former
Theta Chi brother whose October
2003 death was alcohol-related.
"He was a big sports fan and a
big baseball fan," said Brian Seel,
Theta Chi's philanthropy chair-
man. "We decided to have a kick-
ball tournament because it was
the closest thing to baseball that
we could host on a large scale."
Seel said the fraternity raised


about $5,000 from T-shirt sales
and sponsor donations to benefit
Be Responsible About Drinking
Inc., a Michigan-based alcohol
safety organization.
"We decided to have
a kickball tournament
because it was the clos-
est thing to baseball that
we could host on a large
scale."
Brian Seel
Theta Chi philanthropy chairman


At the end of the afternoon,
Delta Zeta Sorority claimed the
coveted tournament title, win-
ning a trophy, a dinner catered by
Wing Zone and bragging rights
for a year.
"It just feels good that every-
one comes out and has such a
good time," Seel said.


Girls go wild in Gainesville


By DREW HARWELL
Alligator Writer
dharwell@alligator.org
Viewers of the. popular "Girls Gone Wild"
tapes got to see how they're made Friday at the
downtown Gainesville nightclub Jewells.
The pornographic "Girls Gone Wild" video
series which shows young women exposing
their bodies and engaging in sexual acts with
other women at parties, clubs and beaches all
over the country has filmed more than 30 vid-
eos since 1998.
Jewells owner Treniss Jewell Evans Il said it
was a record night. The 3-year-old club cycled
through 1,100 people, he said, and the cub's ca-
pacity of 400 was full almost all night.
The "Girls Gone Wild" team was also success-
ful, Evans said. Their camera crews got 16 girls
out to the bus in the first hour to do "whatever
wild they were doing" which included female
nudity and sexual activity. More than 40 female
UF students went into the bus Friday night.
The "Girls Gone Wild" bus a large recre-
ational vehicle complete with bed, shower and


bar allowed women and cameramen privacy
for the video's sexual acts. This particular bus has
been on the "Girls Gone Wild: The Search for the
Wildest Bar in America" tour for months.
Women who strip or perform sexual acts for
the cameras must sign a waiver stating they won't
sue if they appear on the "Girls Gone Wild" vid-
eos or promotional materials.
Mantra Films Inc., the "Girls Gone Wild" pro-
duction company, has been sued by
Student more than a dozen women for using
Life images of them exposing their bod-
ies in public places.
Girls who strip or perform sexual acts are re-
warded for their appearance with a tank top, pair
of panties or trucker hat.
The "Girls Gone Wild" team has returned to
Gainesville each year for the past six years, Evans
said. They also have planned shoots for this tour
in Jacksonville, Miami and Fort Lauderdale.
The "Girls Gone Wild" tour typically charges
clubs around $2,600 for their appearance, but
Evans didn't pay because he knew company rep-
resentatives from his days of owning nightclubs
in South Florida, he said.

'Noles down Hurricanes


* FLORIDA STATE DEFEATED MIAMI
13-10 MONDAY NIGHT.

MIAMI Gary Cismesia took his final
..warmup kick on the sideline, rubbed his
head, fastened his helmet strap and jogged
onto the field. He looked cool and calm,
then did what so many. Florida State kick-
ers over the years could not.
He beat Miami.
Cismesia's 33-yard field goal with 8:06
left lifted the 11th-ranked Seminoles to a
13-10 win over the No. 12 Hurricanes on
Monday night.
Michael Ray Garvin intercepted Kyle
Wright's final pass with 29 seconds left,
sealing the victory.
It was the second straight win in the
series for the Seminoles, who also eked out
a three-point win over their Sunshine State
rival in last season's opener.
Drew Weatherford, who was awful in
the 2005 win, was solid this time throw-
ing for 175 yards, 62 of them on a pair of
pivotal third-down conversions that set up
the Seminoles' lone touchdown early in the
fourth quarter. And Florida State's hopes
almost entirely hinged on the passing
game, since Miami's defensive front held
the Seminoles to 1 yard on 25 rushes.


Still, even a performance like that wasn't
enough to carry the Hurricanes, who man-
aged only 17 yards in the second half and
wasted a 10-3 halftime lead.
"You don't know how hard it is to beat
Miami," Seminoles coach Bobby Bowden
said. "I mean, I've been playing these guys
for 31 years. They've probably got as good
a defense as there is in the
/, 7* country, unless it's us."
r, Charlie Jones had a
S" 4-yard touchdown run
for Miami, which hadn't
,E / -lost to Florida State in the
.,1 ,. Orange Bowl since 1998 -
'\' ,' and has now lost three of
its last four games overall
dating back to last season.
The revamped Hurricane offense struggled
mightily; Wright was 18-of-27 passing, but
gained only 132 yards.
And the rushing game, like Florida
State's, was nonexistent: Miami had 2 yards
on 26 carries, the second-lowest total in
school history.
"What you saw tonight was a typical
Miami-Florida State game. ... I want to
make sure our fans don't give up on this
football team," Miami coach Larry Coker
said.


Freshman RB to play Saturday


FOOT, from page 22


was running hard," Meyer said.
* Third-string back Markus
Manson is banged up with a deep
thigh bruise and had a poor train-
ing camp. Freshman Brandon
James had an impressive spring but
underwent surgery to repair a torn
meniscus and will be out for at least
a couple more weeks.
As a result, freshman Mon
Williams, whom Meyer had hoped
to redshirt, will likely play against
UCF.
A 6-foot-2, 200-pound running
back who runs the 40-yard dash
in 4.45 seconds, Williams has both
the size and the speed to be a differ-
ence-maker in UF's.offense.
"He's a very talented guy that
has struggled learning the offense,"
Meyer said. "But he's talented and
it's our job to make it easier on


him."
Regardless of who lines up in the
backfield, Meyer said the Gators
need to iron out the problems in
their running game if they want to

everybody keeps forgetting about
that No. 21 (Fred Taylor) and Errict
Rhett. They were powerful, power-
ful guys.

UF SOCCER

Gators upset by Fresno State


SWAMP STUDS


By RACHEL ROBINS
Alligator Writer
rrobins@alligator.org
Call it the tale of two goalies.
On Friday, the then-No. 18 UF soccer team (2-
1-1, 0-0 Southeastern Conference) replaced starting
senior goalie Brittni Goodwin with freshman Katie
Fraine.
"I was definitely a little nervous," Fraine said.
"Obviously, you're new and you're young and you
want to do good. I wanted to come out and play as
best as I could."
Fraine gave up a goal in the first half of the UF-
Fresno State game to Bulldogs forward Cortney
Sobrero. It turned out to be the only score of the
game, as Fresno State pulled off the upset 1-0.
- "[The game] was lost in the first half when
we came out without quite enough intensity and
without quite enough fire," Coach Becky Burleigh
said. "That just allowed them to get a goal and for
us to be down, and once you are down in soccer,
anything can happen."
Despite 17 shots on goal by the No. 24 Gators,
none of them made it past FresnoState goalie Angie
T arson.
"Soccer is a funny game," Burleigh said. "I think


it's just one of those things where you can domi-
nate a team and not score. It's just very frustrating.
There's not a better word for this game except for
frustrating."
UF was without one of its veteran forwards,
KeLeigh Hudson, who suffered a grade-two right


Burleigh


MCL sprain and will be out four
to six weeks.
"We certainly would have
liked to have her," Burleigh said.
"She's a playmaker for us that
helps, but our team isn't based on
one player, and we have plenty
of people that can step up in her
place. I mean it wasn't like we


didn't generate enough opportunities."
Goodwin started as goalie during the second
half, but it didn't make a difference in the score-
board.
Goalkeepers coach Eric Storch said he started
Fraine because he wanted to see her talents in a
game situation.
"We're fortunate to have two excellent goalkeep-
ers," Storch said. "Both of them I think are capable
of just having tremendous success this season."
Sunday's game against Louisiana-Lafayette was
a complete reversal as UF won 6-1.


Each
Monday, the
alligatorSports
staff will vote
on the top three
UF football
performances
of the week.
The No. I player
will receive five
points, the No. 2
player will earn
three points
and the No 3
player will earn
- one Point. At
the end of the
year, the player
who earned the
most combined
points will be
given the title of
alligatorSports
,Player of the
Year. In 2005,
wide receiver
Chad Jackson
became the
inaugural winner.

Tebow steals spotlight, scores first career TD


By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org

"Let's go Tebow! Lets go Tebow!"
The home crowd roused on the freshman
quarterback like a prizefighter. Fans chanted
his name like an Emmitt Smith or Danny


Wuerffel.
When Tim Tebow entered the Southern
Miss game with 25 seconds remaining in the
third quarter, the Swamp broke into a wild
-frenzy. Unfortunately for Tebow, there would
be a false start to his career.
He yelled the.wrong cadence on his first
collegiate play, resulting in offensive lineman


Jason Watkins being called for a false start.
The penalty ended the quarter and backed up
UP 11 yards away from the end zone. As the
Gators left the field to switch end zones, the
hero worship never mind that he hadn't
done anything heroic yet began. The crowd
boomed Tebow's name. A sea of flashing light
bulbs enveloped the masses.

Baker shines in opener


By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
dtreat@alligator.org

It didn't take long for Dallas Baker to have
a repeat of his best collegiate performance.
After torching Iowa for 10 catches, 147
yards and two scores in being named Most
Valuable Player of the Outback Bowl, Baker
was right back at it Saturday night, hauling
in nine balls for 123 yards and a score in the
Gators' 34-7 win against Southern Miss.
Despite the fine effort, UF coach Urban
Meyer actually expected more out of the
Baker/Chris Leak combo.
"They threw a couple right on time and
had some nice third-down conversions, but
we also missed a few," Meyer said. "They
actually have been practicing much better
than they played, so I'm looking for them to
continue to improve."
The coaching staff and players were
largely disappointed in an offensive effort
that still managed to chum out 391 total
yards in 12 possessions.
Even Baker, big numbers and all, wasn't
particularly happy with his play.
"It was a pretty big night for me and
Chris, but really as an offense as a whole,
our expectations are higher than that," Baker
said. "It seemed like me and Chris hooked
up a couple times, but on another note, we
played kind of bad. Really, we were sup-
posed to hook up way more than that."


Sticking with the disappointing theme,
even the touchdown Baker scored which
tied the game on the final play of the first
quarter came as a result of a botched
route.
"I kind of ran the wrong route; I was sup-
posed to run a skinny post," Baker said. "But
really I was just thinking, 'Make a big play'
I ran my route and noticed there was a zone
there. So I just backed up into the zone, and
Chris ended up finding me."
With the myriad of
weapons the Gators now
possess on offense, it may
seem unlikely that Baker
will be able to put up those
t.'"s. kind of numbers week in
Sand week out.
But maybe it isn't.
Baker Expected or not, Baker
has evolved into Leak's
go-to man.
"We were joking on the sideline about
that," Baker said. "My mentality is not to
be the go-to receiver; it's to get wins. But if
Chris can throw me the ball nine times, I'll
be happy."
And for the man who began provinghim-
self last season, his time is now.
"I'm starting to feel it," Baker said. "I
feel like I've been here for at least 30 years.
I think me and Chris are starting to come
along fine."


"I don't know if you ever calm the nerves
down," Tebow said.
Two plays later, with Southern Miss play-
ers draped all over him, Tebow mustered his
way to a 1-yard score. Ladies and gentlemen,
let the infatuation begin.
"I remember the first time I put [former
Utah quarterback] Alex Smith in there; his
mouth was open and his heart was beating
pretty quick," UF coach Urban Meyer said.
"Tim's was beating pretty quickly too.
"He's going to be a great player here. It's
a lot of fun watching him play. He's going to
will himself in the end zone a bunch here."
Meyer planned on playing Tebow for a
couple of relevant series. But UF failed to
pull away from Southern Miss until late. Had
Meyer let Tebow orchestrate a long, successful
drive at a critical juncture, it would have sent
an indirect message to the masses that Chris
Leak's job is indeed in jeopardy.
Instead, Meyer opt-
Gators ed to play Tebow in a
'. .*'.: short-yardage situation
where his athleticism
would come in handy. The backup quarter-
back proved golden albeit for a minimal
gain and fulfilled one of his life goals: scor-
ing a touchdown in the home of his childhood
idols.
"It was so exciting that I just wanted to
go and celebrate with my teammates," said
Tebow, who also came in for some handoffs on
UF's final possession.
Ironically, it was Leak who might have
been the happiest for Tebow.
"It was really special," Tebow said.
"During training camp we got really dose.
When I scored, he was one of the most excited
players for me. When I scored, he gave me a
big hug."
Explained Leak: "It's a once-in-a-lifetime
feeling; it's a great feeling to have. Your first
touchdown there's no feeling like it. I was
happy for him. I was mentoring him the entire
time this summer. It was good to see someone
you've been helping do so well. I picked him
up [in the air]."


WR Cooper to see action


NOTES, from page 22

They wanted to see the young guys
play."

COOPER IN, OTHERS OUT: Meyer has
all but decided to bum the redshirt of
freshman receiver Riley Cooper. The
6-foot-3 receiver boasts too much speed
and playmaking ability for the coach to
justify benching him.
"Up until last week, he had some
very average practices," Meyer said.
"But he had a great four-day stretch
where he and [freshman receiver]
Jarred Fayson were battling things out.
We need Riley Cooper he's one of
the more talented guys we have. He's
what you look for. We just have to push
him harder in practice."
On the flipside are freshmen Carl
Johnson, Brandon Antwine and
Lawrence Marsh. Meyer anticipates
redshirting the three players.

MCDONALD, CALDWELL RUSTY: Meyer
called defensive end Ray McDonald
and wide receiver Andre Caldwell
"rusty" after watching their perfor-


mances on tape.
McDonald, who did not register a
defensive statistic, tore both ACLs last
season.
Caldwell, who caught three passes
for 16 yards, played his first game since
breaking his right leg against Tennessee
last season.
"We had a couple of plays supposed
.to go right to him and for whatever
reason it just didn't happen," Meyer
said. "He's certainly a big part of this.
We need him. But he'd be the first one
to tell you he played like he practiced
- up and down. We just have to get
him back into his rhythm slowly."

CHAMPIONS CLUB: Several players
made Meyer's Champions Club fol-
lowing UF's 34-7 win.
Defensively, linebackers Brandon
Siler and Earl Everett, corerbacks
Ryan, Smith and Reggie Lewis and
safeties Reggie Nelson and Tony Joiner
made the list.
Offensively, quarterback Chris Leak,
wide receivers Dallas Baker and Jemalle
Cornelius and offensive linemen Steve
Rissler, Carlton Medder, Phil Trautwein
and Drew Miller made the dub.

UF FOOTBALL

Running game still a problem


By BRYAN JONES
S Alligator Staff Writer
bjones@alligator:org

Game one is in the books, ard the
page on the Gators' running backs
reads a bit too familiar for their head
coach's liking.
After struggling to develop any
kind of consistent running game
throughout most of last season, UF
coach Urban Meyer said he was disap-
pointed in the Gators' lack of progress
in that area, despite a 34-7 victory
against Southern Miss.
"Without taking any credit away
from our opponent, I was very disap-
pointed in our run game," Meyer said.
"I appreciate their attitude we just
have to get a lot better at that spot
right now."
Senior DeShawn Wynn and sopho-
more Kestahn Moore averaged a re-
spectable 5.1 yards.per carry between
the two. However, those numbers
were skewed by Wynn, who left the
game with a neck stinger.
Fullback Billy Latsko, who has
been nursing a sprained ankle, did not
play well either, Meyer said.
In fact, the Gators' best ground op-
tion against the Golden Eagles was not
even a running back.
Fr-hmnan wide receiver Percy
Harvin led UF with 58 yards and
needed just four carries to do it. He
averaged 14.5 yards per attempt.
"You need guys that can make
people miss in the open field," Meyer
said. "Percy Harvin is one, [but be-
sides him] there's going to be a try out
camp this week. I want to see who can
make people miss and [those players]
might be playing tailback."
Moore looked more comfortable
as a receiver than a runner, catching


three passes for 27 yards and a touch-
down despite failing to find any kind
of a rhythm in his ground game.
To add to the Gators' woes at the
tailback position, Wynn is considered


questionable for Saturday's game
against Central Florida.
"It's a shame because I thought he

Monday night, Thomas denied that
he had done anything wrong. He also
ruled out that grades might have been a
problem.
"It was just a decision made,"
Thomas said. "They wanted to see Clint

plays.
Did you notice anything different
about Saturday's game? About Saturday's
games?
Iowa State was played by less plays.
Did you check the box score of the Iowa
State/Toledo game? Three overtimes. A 45-43
final, yet the Cyclones totaled just 68 plays.
Last season in a double-overtime game against
Vanderbilt, UF had 83 plays..
NCAA was played by less plays, and it
doesn't even care. Punished itself, in fact. For
television. For money. For greed. Without a
shred of dignity or respect for a cherished
game that has spanned
decades and bridged
generations.
If you thought this
weekend's college
football games finished
just a little too early,
Louis you were right. If you
Anastasis thought the Gators
Louis in the Bullpen should have still been
lanastasis@alligator.org driving toward the end
zone when the march-
ing band was parading
on the field at halftime, you were right on the
money just like the spineless NCAA Rules
Committee, which somehow escaped with
integrity rape this summer.
Without consulting any coaches, the com-
mittee successfully passed the following foot-
ball changes: The game dock now starts when
a ball is kicked on kickoffs. The cock also starts
when a referee grants the ready-for-play signal
instead of on a snap.
The NCAA's argument? That college foot-
ball games historically took longer than their
allotted three-hour TV slot. Because we al-
ways curse at the tube when we get too much
Saturday action.
"I had no idea," said Meyer, who found
out about the change during an off-season
Southeastern Conference coaches' conference.
"They were like, 'By the way, we're chang-
ing this.' It was real fast. Everybody was like,
'What rule?' Then they said, 'The dock's go-
ing to keep going.' Then everybody quickly
started talking about what they were going to
order for lunch. [When it hit me], I just looked
at someone and asked, 'What did they just
say?'"
Why does this even matter? Consider that
the Gators averaged 70 plays last season.
Saturday, UF managed just 59 offensive plays.
Based on the mathematical difference, the rule
change cost the Gators six points. And if you're
keeping score at home, that's 16 percent fewer

P aWuerffel returns


* DANNY WUERFFEL STILL
REMEMBERS KATRINA.

By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
nzaccardi@alligator.org

Ten seasons ago, the Louisiana
Superdome housed a celebration.
One year ago, it sheltered heart-
break.
Danny Wuerffel was part of both
the up the 1997 Sugar Bowl and
the down Hurricane Katrina and
celebrated both anniversaries last
week.
"It was such a focal point for
good and bad, celebration and trag-
edy in my lifetime," Wuerffel said.
At the Superdome on Jan. 2,1997;
Wuerffel and the Gators defeated
Florida State 52-20 in the Sugar Bowl
to win UF's first national champion-
ship.
The game culminated a Heisman
Trophy-winning season for Wuerffel,
who led the Gators to a 12-1 record.
At the reunion of the 1996 UF na-
tional championship team, he stood
out in sandals and a cap. Wuerffel
reminisced at an O'Connell Center
boosters event and at The Swamp
five minutes before the UF-Southern
Miss game.
Joined by 84 players, 23 coaches
and three staff members, Wuerffel
received the second-biggest ovation
at the O'Connell Center and The
Swamp behind one Steve Spurrier.
A year ago at the Superdome,
cries replaced cheers.
As Hurricane Katrina made
landfall Aug. 29, 2005, the
Superdome would again cross paths
with Wuerffel. Some students at
Wuerffel's Desire Street Academy
fled to the New Orleans Saints'
home to wait out the storm.
In the meantime, Wuerffel, the
executive director of Desire Street
Ministries, evacuated his New
Orleans home with his family.

plays.
'Tm very concerned about
the direction of college foot-
ball," Meyer said. "I'm not
sure what the intent is.
"Fans want to see scoring
and coaches want to see scor-
ing. I'm very upset."
Remember the thrill of
working the sidelines during
the two-minute drill of a dose
game? Kiss these situations
goodbye; the dock will still
run. Remember the strategy
of running out the clock by
staying inbounds? Teams
might as well take a knee be-
cause a tailback can walk out
of the stadium and the dock
will still run.
Oh, but it's OK. We could
extend the NCAA's wonder-
ful breakthrough to all cor-
ners of society.
Let's just go ahead and


his son Jonah drove to Natchez,
Miss., before arriving in the Florida
Panhandle.
Wuerffel learned his New
Orleans house was submerged,
Desire Street destroyed.
James Bates, Wuerffel's team-
mate and linebacker on the
title team, made a documentary on
Desire Street two months before
Katrina came.
"Desire Street Ministries were
in the thick of it and it Vws gone,"
said Bates, who recently left his job
as a Gators analyst for a commentat-
ing position in the Mountain West
Conference. "We were scared 'for
Danny and all the kids."
Wuerffel and the kids found a
temporary home
Sin Niceville, Fla.,
as UF donated
land comprising
its 4-H camp to
S- temporarily relo-
cate the academy.
j On Aug. 28,
Wuerffel classes opened at
the school's third
home in a year, Baton Rouge, La.
But the plan is to return to
the Desire neighborhood in New
Orleans. Even pre-Katrina, the area
was a haven for at-risk youth look-
ing for answers in both Wuerffel's
ministries and academy.
"They'll look you in the eye
and tell you about the murders
that they've seen on their way to
school like it's nothing almost
like my kids could talk about a fire
hydrant they pass on their way to
school," Bates said. "It just breaks
your heart to know that they were
going through this. Kids who had
every opportunity to give up were
fighting through the negativity and
were just slapped in the fjce by all
this terrible stuff that was just going
on."
Through it all, Wuerffel kept the
organization afloat for the kids.
"You can't help but just be in awe
of how wonderful he is," Bates said.

Let's remove one of the

We could trash tips. Why
pay the extra 15 to 20 percent
when you could pocket the
extra change?
Music labels should re-
quire that artists record two

the phrase "bang for your
