UF ADMINISTRATION


Student deaths spur 'safe zone' at game


By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Staff Writer
llewis@alligator.org

UF will partner with the University
of Georgia and the city of Jacksonville to
promote student safety during this year's
Florida-Georgia football game, after two
students died following the past two
Jacksonville games.


At a Wednesday meeting of the
Community Alcohol Coalition, which
works to combat unsafe drinking habits, UF
President Bernie Machen said the university.
would work with UGA and Jacksonville to
form a "Student Safe Zone" for this year's
game.
The proposed area would provide a se-
cure haven for students during the weekend
of the game, which is scheduled for Oct. 28,

as well as offer a place
to meet up with miss-
ing friends. The zone is
set to be located near the
Jacksonville Landing, an
entertainment district fre-
quented by sports fans.
"The people in
Jacksonville suggested
less 'spirited interchange'
-


if both universities were in the safe zone,"
Machen told coalition members, referring to
the rowdy rivalry between the two teams.
Additionally, he said, more police officers
may be patrolling Jacksonville on the night
of the matchup.
During the 2004 Florida-Georgia game
weekend, a UF student died from alcohol-

Assembly welcomes gay students

0 THE EVENT WAS MODELED
AFTER A TV AWARDS SHOW.

By ANDREW TAN
Alligator Contributing Writer :

UF leaders received naked golden
dolls Wednesday night as rewards
for their activism in the gay and les-
bian community.
The dolls were doled out during
a weIlome assembly in the Reitz
Union for lesbian, gay, bisexual,
transgender or questioning students.
The event, titled Queer Television
Awards 2006: LGBTQ Welcome
Assembly, modeled itself after an
entertainment awards show.
UF's Pride Student Union and
the LGBT Affairs branch of the Dean
of Students Office sponsored the
event.
Anais Escobar, speaker's bureau
chairwoman for PSU, said the event
was meant to help freshman LGBT
students discover the services avail-
able to them at UF.
The evening took on a light-
hearted tone as students acted out
movie parodies like "V! for Vagina"
and "Mean Gays."
Phillip Harden, treasurer for PSU,
said the event cost around $900 to
produce.
About 10 students and UF of-
ficials received mock awards at the
event. Student Body President John
Boyles earned the prize for "Most
Adorable SG Official."

Victors ready


for November

By DREW HARWELL
Alligator Writer
dharwell@alligator.org

Politicians who won in Tuesday's primaries
are celebrating their victories and working toward
more in the November elections.
In the Republican gubernatorial primary,
Attorney General Charlie Crist won nearly twice
as many votes as his opponent, Chief Financial
Officer Tom Gallagher.
He will face off against congressman Jim Davis,
who won the Democratic primary with 47.4 per-
cent 6f the total vote about 6 percent more than
state Sen. Rod Smith.
Both Davis and Smith are
Elections alumni of UF's Levin College of
2006 Law.
Smith called Davis to con-
cede the race around 11:20 Tuesday night, and
Gallagher called to concede the race to Crist
around 10:15 p.m.
The communications director for Davis' cam-
paign, Josh Earnest, called Davis' victory satisfy-
ing after many months of campaigning.
The campaign directors held an election-night
party attended by about 250 supporters in the
Tampa Bay area.
The next step .in Davis' campaign will be to
travel the state so voters of all parties can hear his
plan for better leadership in Tallahassee, Earnest
said.
Specifically, he mentioned that Davis would be
talking about investing more in education, prop-
erty insurance reform and health care.

for safety

E UP TO 25 STUDENTS WILL
BE ADMITTED TO THE CLASS.

By FRANCESCA DE GIROLAMI
Alligator Contributing Writer

Students who want some ex-
tra cash for bookscan earn a $250
book scholarship if they complete
a six-week community program.
Starting its second year, the
Community Advocates program
teaches UF and SFCC students
about crime prevention, safety,
the Gainesville community and
how they can. give back to the
city. Applications are due Friday.
Students will attend a two-
hour class for six weeks. Each
class covers a different topic, in-
cluding emergency preparation,
crime scene investigations and
city codes. There will also be a
tour of City Hall.
"We want students to learn
more about how to be safe in the
community," said Nora Kilroy,
director of off-campus life and
assistant dean of students. "We
want them to be aware of the
resources that are available to
them."
Pubic Nora Kilroy co-
S t founded the program
along with Cpl. Jaime
Kurnick from the Gainesville
Police.
"I know we have great stu-
dents living off campus," Kilroy
said. "Having the opportunity to
educate them and have them ed-
ucate other people, and to really
show the city how wonderful our
students are is great. I feel really
lucky to do that."
Participants must also com-
plete three programs in their
neighborhoods. These projects
include a community service
project, a crime prevention pro-
gram and a social activity for the
participant's neighborhood or
apartment complex.
If participants complete the
six-week course and all three
outside programs, they will each
receive a $250 book scholarship.
Ten students participated in
the Community Advocates pro-
gram last Fall, and this year the
program expects 25 to partici-
pate, which is its limit.
The application is available
online' on the Off-Campus Life
Web site at www.dso.ufl.edu/
offcampus.
The applications will be re-
viewed and the Community
Advocates will be selected and
contacted by Tuesday.

Journals renewed


with UF's support


By LINDSEY FRANCO
Alligator Writer
Ifranco@alligator.org

Although UF's libraries
projected a budget deficit last
Spring, Smathers Libraries has
announced it will not cancel any
subscriptions to academic jour-
nals or databases.
UF administrators gave the
libraries $750,000 the amount
they needed to renew subscrip-
tions to all of their print and on-
line journals in 2007.
"We're happy, they're happy,"
said John Ingram, the libraries'
deputy director. "All in all, from
the libraries' point of view, it was
a win-win situation."
Last Spring, library officials es-
timated there would be a $750,000
deficit in the 2007 budget. Officials
partially attributed'the shortfall to
high journal subscription costs.
Officials decided in March
that if UF administrators were
unwilling to give any money, they
would eventually cut a portion


of the library's print and online.
journals.
Faculty and graduate students
wrote letters to the UF adminis-
tration about their need for the
journals earlier this year, but UF
officials would not give the li-
brary any money before its own
budget was released.
The State University System
sets UF"s budget,
On which was released
'. .:. .. 1 this Summer.
"The president
and the provost
could not act on budgetary de-
mands before they knew what
their budget was," Ingram said.
UF Provost Janie Fouke said
once officials learned the univer-
sity's budget for the upcoming
year, they informed the library
they would be able to provide the
necessary funding.
"The library is the heart of
the university, and by support-
ing the library, you're supporting
everything else that's going on,"
Ingram said.

Newspaper to send 'right' message


By REBECA PEREZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

Some Americans say college campuses are too liberal, but
a group of UF students is hoping to debunk that myth by
founding a conservative newspaper to serve the university
community.
That publication, which will be called the Florida Frontier, is
expected to be out by mid-October.
The newspaper will focus mainly on local and campus top-
ics, said Leslie Veiga,a UF graduate student helping to get the
Florida Frontier off the ground.
"We're not trying to cover world and national issues," Veiga
said. "Realistically, if you're going to read about the war in Iraq,
you're going to look at a more educated and researched opin-
ion such as The New York Tunes."
The Florida Frontier will be published monthly and will
center on investigative and political articles.
In order to be cost-effective, the publication will start as a
newspaper, but it could transform into a magazine, depending
on student responses, Veiga said.
Although the newspaper is not affiliated with a political
party, it will have a conservative bent and will initially be fund-


ed by the Leadership Institute, a conservative organization.
Eventually, the newspaper will depend on outside revenues
and advertisement sales.
"It will be used as a tool use to spread our conservative
thoughts and messages," College Republicans Chairman Matt
Dean said.
"I feel the magazine will offer students a bal-
anced view and could become the best infor-
mation source apart from newspapers."
Diana Delgado
UF senior

The students working on the newspaper hope to model
it after other successful conservative publications like the
California Patriot at the University of California.
Diana'Delgado, a UF senior working on the Florida Frontier,
said she feels it is a great way to connect students to a different
segment of their local community.
"I feel the magazine will offer students a balanced view and
could become the best information source apart from newspa-
pers," Delgado said.


Class drags on when clocks don't tick


* UF OPTED TO LEAVE CLOCK
MAINTENANCE TO COLLEGES.

By MALLORY COLLIFLOWER
Alligator Contributing Writer.

Time stops for some UF students as
they enter lecture halls; but it's just not
because of the daunting 50 minutes that
lie ahead.
In classrooms around the campus,
many wall clocks have stopped ticking,
and some of those classrooms don't
have clocks at all.
Carleton Auditorium and rooms in
Keene-Flint Hall, McCarty Hall C and
Weimer Hall force students to keep
track of time by themselves.
"I've gotten used to. the fact that in
Weimer, it's always 12," said UF junior


Amy Sager.
In Room 1064 of Weimer Hall, two
clocks are frozen at noon.
"I always make sure to wear a watch
when it's test time," Sager said.
The university abandoned its master
clock system six or seven years ago, said
Physical Plant Division Director David
O'Brien, because examina-
0n tions of the clock system
O- put a high price tag on an
upgrade.
"We engaged in dis-
cussions with the provost's office and
decided that the high cost of upgrad-
ing the entire system probably wasn't a
wise expenditure at the time," O'Brien
Said.
Now, individual colleges are respon-
sible for their own classroom clocks.
Each college is free to decide whether


to purchase battery-operated clocks for
its classrooms and how to keep them
running.
Repairs for major university struc-
tures, such as damaged roofs and bro-
ken air conditioning systems, are more
necessary than cock-system upkeep,
O'Brien said.
Advocates of abandoning the system
argued that students already carried the
time around with them on cell phones,
thus eliminating the need to update an
expensive clock system.
Robin West, a professor in the de-
partment of psychology, has grown
accustomed to using her wristwatch to
monitor the time as she lectures.
"Frankly, it annoys me more when
there is a clock and it is wrong," West
said. "I'd rather have no clock than an
incorrect one."

Booze clues

Online alcohol course

accomplishes little
H ey, guess what? Alcohol can compromise your judg-
ment. No, we're serious! It can also cause brain and
liver damage. Scary stuff, that alcohol. That's why you
should drink it in moderation or better yet, not at all. And
ladies, never take a drink from a stranger.
Did we miss anything?
The Alligator gleaned these pearls of wisdom (and a few
more) from UF's online alcohol course. Starting this week, all
new students must complete the course if they want to register
for classes next semester. We just have one question: What is
this supposed to accomplish?
UF students aren't stupid. They know that alcohol compro-
mises their judgment. That's why they drink it. Telling them
that booze is bad for the brain won't change that.
But who knows? Maybe the administration expects flip-cup
games across our fair land to disband as soon as this informa-
tion hits the streets. It could happen. Maybe it's happening
right now.
It starts as a rumor. "I heard that alcohol can damage your
hippocampus," one partier whispers to another. Like a brush
fire, the news spreads.
Now there's a stampede to the door as students bolt for the
good, dean fun of the Smathers Library. All the while, a woman
in the back shrieks, "The limbic system! Won't somebody
please think of the limbic system?"
Yeah, that could happen. On second thought, maybe not.
That's why UF President Bernie Machen's latest sortie in the
war on alcohol seems how to put it? like so much ass,
covering. Since Machen took over, at least five students have
died in alcohol-related circumstances. Parents and alumni are
concerned, and rightly so.
But a 45-minute Internet course which students will
breeze through in half that time is no solution. In fact, its the
sign of a bigger problem. On this issue, like so many others, the
administration seems to prefer cosmetic solutions to real ones.



Katie Couric takes over


On Tuesday, Katie
Couric became the
first network news
anchor with ovaries. In a
few years, Hillary Clinton
might be the first Madame
President. Hell, even Pat
Summitt, the winningest
basketball coach in NCAA
history, is a woman. And
then there's Oprah.
But don't worry, guys.
In the battle of the sexes,
you've still got'a fighting
chance. Out of 535 seats in
Congress, you've managed
to hang on to 461. That's
cutting it close, but with
some old-fashioned grit
and determination, you'll
pull through just fine.
On the business front,
things look a little better -
male chief executive officers


run 98 percent of Fortune
500 corporations. But don't
let your guard down, fellas.
The ladies have eBay, and
they're coming for more.
It's a good thing you own
99 percent of the world's
property, or you might re-
ally be in trouble.
Of course, the Katie
Couric thing is still a ma-
jor blow. I mean, sure, a
morning talk show we
can see that. Interviews
with Martha Stewart and
Puff Daddy. But the nightly
news? In Walter Cronkite's
chair? What's next, a wom-
an in charge of The New
York Times?
What's that? A woman
does run The New York
Times? Oh. Well, you're
screwed then.

UF needs colorblind
Read an article last week on the front page of the
Alligator about increased minority enrollment. It cred-
ited UF President Bernie Machen's recruitment efforts.
I'm probably one of a very few people who will publicly
tell you that this isn't good news.
Of course, it's not bad news either. It's not news at
all. There are proportionately more black and Hispanic
people at UF then there used to be, but why does that
matter?
You may as well say that more of this year's'freshmen
enjoy sushi than in any other incoming class. Students
who enjoy a particular kind of food, like those with a
particular shade of skin, are no more or less valuable to
this university than any other students.
Before I go any further, let me share with you a small
portion of my own experience. When it came time for
me to apply to colleges, I thought I wanted to go to-
Princeton. I applied there, but despite my perfect grade
point average and test scores, my membership in honor
societies, and my four years on the wrestling team, I
didn't get in.
Which is fine. Maybe they wanted someone more
qualified. But the same year, a black girl from my school
(with lower test scores and less extracurricular involve-
ment) got in. Princeton's a private institution, of course,
and they can choose who they want. I'm sure she'll do
well there but I don't know why I didn't get the same
chance.
Looking back on it today, I can't help but think: If I
had been a minority, would I have gotten in?
Don't misunderstand me I don't believe that all
minority students at this or any other university got in
because of their minority status. But racial preference in

admissions policy
admissions has been the practice
of this and, many other institu-
tions for decades, and it's naive
to think that this policy never
comes into play.
Do I blame minorities? Of
Patrick Barrett course not. But I am disappoint-
Grin and Barrett ed in the universities, because ra-
letters@alligator.org cial preference is their policy. Do
I want minorities in college? Of
course I do but they shouldn't
be here just because they're minorities, any more than I
should be here just because I'm white.
I realize that racism has kept minorities out of col-
lege in the past, and I also realize racism still exists. But
if we want to get past it, the first step is to stop consid-
ering race at all. Why not start now, with a colorblind
admissions policy?
It is unacceptable f6r universities to consider skin
color when admitting or recruiting students. That means
no special treatment for whites, blacks, Hispanics,
Asians, American Indians or anyone else.
I am sure that many people who read this will think I
am some kind of racist. I am not. If next year's incoming
class is entirely Hispanic, black or anything else, you
won't hear a peep out of me as long as they're the
most qualified applicants.
We as a university should truly value each student
equally, regardless of skin color. I welcome all qualified
students to UF, regardless of their backgrounds. I just
wish you could say the same of the powers-that-be.

Letters to the Editor
Towing companies deserve bad reputation
I've always assumed that the bad rap tow-
ing companies get is simply the nature of the
business. They have a perfectly legitimate
reason for towing a car, but the hassle they
create for students and the subsequent bills
- don't exactly put the towingcompanies in a
good light.
On Friday night, my opinion changed. I was
lucky enough to witness a tow truck driver at-
tempting to tow a red Honda Civic Coupe out
of an apartment complex's parking lot. Due to
the layout of the lot (or his poor towing skills),
he couldn't maneuver the car out.
But this didn't faze the fearless driver, who
proceeded to unlock that is, break into
- the vehicle with one of his tools. Then he
simply rolled the car backward into a position
more suitable for towing. I could be wrong, but
I'm going to assume this practice isn't exactly
legal.
It's time for the City Commission to take
some action, show the student population a
little more respect and start giving tow truck
drivers some rules to follow.

related circumstances, and another student
died after last year's game from head inju-
ries he suffered during an attack. Machen
stressed at Wednesday's meeting that UGA
and Jacksonville are eager to work with UF
to prevent problems this year.
"We haven't gotten to costs yet, but we
would hope the city of Jacksonville would
be the primary supporter there," Machen
said.
In the meantime, UF is looking to reach
its own students through a new commit-
tee, said Vice President for Student Affairs
Patricia Telles-Irvin. That group is still be-


ing formed, but it will eventually offer tips
about how students can stay safe during
game weekends, she said.
In a speech last year, Machen said he
considers binge drinking to be a "deadly
problem" at UF. Following his arrival at the
university in 2004, he launched a campaign
to combat alcohol abuse among students.
At Wednesday's meeting, coalition
members addressed the role played by
Gainesville businesses in UF's fight against
binge drinking.
Kim Tanzer, an architecture professor
who represented UF's Faculty Senate at the
meeting, said she's concerned that some lo-
cal venues promote unhealthy behavior.
Last weekend, the popular "Girls Gone


Wild" franchise hit a Gainesville nightclub
- an event that Tanzer said set "a really, re-
ally.low bar for our students."
,"Drinking and really poor judgment can
go together," she said. "I realize that not all
women feel badly after they sign consent
forms the next day,
UF but apparently quite
Administration a few do."
To curb un-
healthy habits among young people, a group
of 12 restaurants and other establishments
around Gainesville are working with UF,to
promote responsible alcohol consumption.
But as ads for drink specials around the
city clutter Web sites like Facebook.com,
some coalition members said a few estab-


lishments are not upholding their part of
the deal.
"I wouldn't mind telling them that we
want them to be part of this coalition, but
if they do, we want it to mean something,"
Machen said.
The coalition ,also outlined its next
steps in the battle against binge drinking
Wednesday.
Virginia Dodd, UF assistant professor,
presented plans to cut students' binge drink-
ing to less than 50 percent by 2008.
Machen commended the university's
progress in promoting healthy habits.
"It feels pretty good to me right now
when you walk around the community and
see what we're doing," he said.


UF must be open to gay issues to rank in Top 10, assistant dean says

"be a part of this community" by educating each other
and the university at large about multicultural issues.
While Boyles talked about the future, UF President
Bernie Machen discussed how far UF has come in con-
fronting LGBTQ issues.
Since he arrived at UF in 2004, he said, he has worked


to advocate inclusion within UF's community. After a cli-
mate survey showed gay students felt uncomfortable on
campus, he created a position for LGBTQ affairs.
Several students performed skits during the event.
One student wore jeans and half a skirt to represent both
Romeo and Juliet.
He recited monologues from both doomed characters
during his performance, which was eventually voted the
best one of the evening.
Nora Spencer, the new director of UF's LGBT Affairs,


said she feels like gay people are "everywhere."
"I think most of the world is gay," she. said with a
laugh.
Tamara Cohen, assistant dean of students and director
of multicultural and diversity affairs, ec hoecdo their -peak -
ers' concerns. She said UF needs to be open to gay issues
if it wants to become a top-ranked-university.
"Always be proud of the gay in Gator Nation," she told
students at the assembly.

Voter turnout less than 30%


ELECTION, from page 1

Crist's spokesperson could
not be reached Wednesday de-
spite several calls.
Katherine Harris, a mem-
ber of Florida's House of
Representatives, won the
Republican U.S. Senate pri-
mary with 49.4 percent of the
total votes. She will run against
Democratic incumbent Bill
Nelson.
Jennifer Marks, the spokes-
woman for Harris' campaign,
said the representative's cam-
paign is-energized by Tuesday's
win.
Harris and around 100 sup-,
porters celebrated the victory
at their headquarters in Tampa,
Marks said.


"Our eyes are set on
November," Marks said.
Alachua County Supervisor
of Elections Pam Carpenter said
the primary election went well
though turnout was relatively
low.
Approximately 25 percent
of Alachua's 146,097 registered
voters participated in the pri-
maries. In 2000 the voter turnout
was around 26 percent, but in
2002 and 2004 the turnout was
around 30 percent, Carpenter
said.
She said a possible reason
for the low turnout was the
election's placement a day after
Labor Day.
The Alachua County
Canvassing Board, which certi-
fies the county's results, will re-
view the last 80 provisional bal-
lots on Friday, Carpenter said.

Morningbell to perform at the Orange and Brew


By SHEM FLEENOR
Avenue Writer

No disrespect to anyone, but Momingbell
deserves success more than any other collec-
tion of musicians in town.
The band's members have paid due after
due in order to bring the local music scene to
its zenith.. Front men Eric and Travis Atria,
brothers from Miami, are Gainesville's unsung
whiz kids.
Tonight at the Orange and Brew,
Gainesville residents will have a chance to get
drunk on school grounds and hear one of the
most inventive, talented bands ever to call the
city home.


Its theatrics, musicianship and enthusiasm
are as refreshing as a Coke and a smile.
Gainesville is currently in the midst of mu-
sical renaissance. In that context, Moringbell
is its Leonardo Da.Vinci.
Yet, as a band of mad geniuses virtually
unknown outside of north central Florida, the
group is also, tragically, like a living version of
Vincent Van Gogh.
"Art is what separates us from animals,"
Travis Atria said. "There's something beauti-
ful about making something that wasn't there
before, even if no one's listening-or watch-
ing."
More and more, people are beginning to
listen to the band's well-honed sound and

Festival on May 18.


watch its vibrant live show.
"Our sound is like 1,000 Jesuses being
bom on Christmas Day," said Eric Atria. "And
there's a Nintendo under the tree."
Many nonresidents have convinced them-
selves that Gainesville's music scene is in de-
cline. In truth, Gainesville is undoubtedly the
penthouse of Florida's music scene.
"I think people see Gainesville as a big col-
lege town, and they're all so wrapped up in
their workday world that they don't give any
credit to a 'bunch of college kids,'" Eri-said.
"Those who call it a demise love what it 'used
to be.' Gainesville lately is much more than
that. Higher quality and more variety of mu-
sic have been coming out of here lately. Other
folks haven't necessarily caught up."
With bands such as Swayze, Holopaw,
Velveteen Pink, Oh No! and the Tiger Pit, The
Mercury Program and Clock Hands Strangle
calling Gainesville home, it seems absurd that,
there is anything but acclaim for the scene.
"I take it as a matter of fact that the bands
playing in town right now could match up to
any that have played in Gainesville's rich his-
tory," Travis said.
On Aug. 25 at the Atlantic, band members
handed out red roses to all the lovely ladies in
the first few rows, turned the lights down low
and blew the packed venue of sweat-soaked *
college kids' minds with a breakneck show
that began with an Al Green cover complete
with a horn section.
They don't just make people feel like danc-
ing, they make love to the audience. The audi-
ence exudes love back.
Morningbell has the purest grasp of the
concept of fusing art and entertainment any-
where on this half of the country, aside from
The Flaming Lips and The Polyphonic Spree.
I became enamored with the foursome
(keyboardist Stacie Thrushman and drummer
Evan Mitchell were unavailable for comment)
on a steamy June night. Though the Shamrock
Irish Restaurant & Pub was half-empty, the
band members played their hearts out. They
had the audacity, panache and brilliance to do
an entire set of cover songs originally written
by Gainesville bands.


Though they make it seem easier than
breathing, balancing art and business can feel
like having an ear amputated.
"It is incredibly difficult," Travis lamented.
"When you have to book the gig and set up all
of the instruments and make sure all the bands
are on and off at the right time, it becomes very
hard to get onstage and enjoy yourself."
Yet somehow the group manages to pro-
duce high-quality, creative, courageous mu-
sic in the studio and unforgettable theatrics
onstage.
But they are not just responsible for them-
selves they are helping other bands find
their voice.
The Atria brothers started Orange Records
of Gainesville, signing great up-and-comers
like Clock Hands Strangle and The Most.
The Atrias have long been notorious for
bending over backward to help local acts book
shows, promote and record. Starting their own
label was the next logical step.
Eric is a local public defender. His life is
dedicated to helping people.
In true public-defender form, Eric is more
concerned with running a label that helps
bands hone their craft than he is with lining his
own pockets. The Atrias are more conceded
with maintaining their artistic integrity and
independence than they are with cashing in
on their talent.
"What we don't want is to be subject of an-
other marketing strategy for MTV or some big
label," Eric said. "We'd be perfectly content as
a popular underground band."
But even those humble dreams are not the
band's goals.
They judge themselves every six months
or so. As long as they feel as if they're evolv-
ing artistically, they plan to keep writing and
performing.
"We try to be a band that is proud to say
we're from Gainesville, and we hope that
Gainesville is proud to say that we're from
here," Eric said. "I really try to put on great
shows with quality bands and give the people
what they pay for."
Tonight at the Orange and Brew, listeners
will get their money's worth and then some.


Harn Museum re-opens with 7 new exhibitions

By KELLY SEREIKAS
Avenue Writer


The last three months at the 16-
year-old Ham Museum resembled
an extended episode of a TLC
renovation show.
Instead of art, curators and
visitors, the original galleries were
home to painters, wood refinishers
and carpet installers.
That all changed on Tuesday
when the doors to the renovated
galleries reopened with seven new
exhibitions.
The permanent collections of
African art, Asian art and Modem
art of Europe and the Americas
were reinstalled. The Ham's grow-
ing collection of photography now
has its own gallery, celebrated with
the exhibition ."Contemporary
Complexities: Photography Gifts
from Martin Z. Margulies."
"It's very exciting. For the first
time, every collection has a gallery,"
Christine M. Hale, the director of
marketing and public relations, said


in a press release.
Two other temporary exhibi-
tions opened, including "Resonance
and Inspiration: New Works by
Magdalene Odundo" and "Spinach
Green and Mutton-fat White:
Chinese Jades of the Qing Dynasty."
While the collections of African,
Asian and Modem art were rein-
stalled, the renovated space allows
for more art to be displayed. The
curators worked hard to alter the
exhibitions to provide a different
perspective for returning visitors.
The curators seized the oppor-
tunity in the permanent galleries to
showcase recent acquisitions never
before seen and create interesting
juxtapositions and groupings of
objects that offer insights into even
the most familiar works of art, Hale
said in a press release. The curators
organized the works to focus on the
energy of the pieces and how they
relate.

that in a moment it is possible to

Rick Ross to perform at 238


Kelly assures laughs


BY CHRISTIANA LILLY
Avenue Contributing Writer

Storm clouds aren't the only
thing coming up from the South.
Tomorrow, rapper Rick Ross will
storm into nightclub 238 West,
and he will definitely pack a big-
ger punch than Ernesto did.
"He's the hottest thing on the
street right now," says 238 West
dub promoter Jonathan "Jock
Smooth" Smith.
Doors will open at 10 p.m., but
Rick Ross will not grace the stage
until 1 a.m. In the meantime, con-
certgoers can enjoy hosts Bigga
Rankins & The Cool Runnings
Crew and acts from up-and-com-
ing rappers Chill "Million Dolla
Man" and Haitian Fresh.
Rick Ross was meant to
perform at 238 West in July, but
due to a shooting incident, cub
employees felt it was best to hold
the concert at a later time.
The dub has responded with
heightened security.
"We search everybody, every


single person short of the police.
Our job is to provide a safe envi-
ronment for our concertgoers,"
Jock Smooth said.
Since the incident, dub man-
ager Sean "Young Millz" Grant
has seen every
night go without [Rick Ross

afraid of that inci-

Jock Smooth said this concert
is one that should be talked about
for months.
"Rick Ross throws his heart
into his music and stage perfor-
mance," he said.
Young Miliz added that they
are trying to give back to students
with this performance.
In the two and a half years that
238 West has been open, high-pro-
file artists such as Trick Daddy,
Trina, Lil' Boosie and Gucci Mane

"Comedy is the new rock 'n'
roll," said Robert Kelly, who just
spent 30 days on a'tour bus with
Gary Gulman, Jay Davis and per-
haps the biggest name in stand-up
comedy, Dane Cook. "Dane's the
lead singer, I'm lead guitar, Gary
plays the drums and Jay's on bass,"
he said. The crew performed 20
straight sold-out shows for the
HBO comedy special "Tourgasm."
Kelly, alongwithhis "Tourgasm"
partner Jay Davis nothing im-
plied there promises to "tear
the stage up" and follow Friday's
show at The Venue with a meet-
and-greet.
"If there's one kid there, we'll
give him an autograph if there's
1,000, we'll take 1,000 photographs
and sign 1,000 autographs," he
said.
This will be Kelly's first career
stop in Gainesville, but far from his


first gig in Florida.
"Every time my agent books
shows I make sure there's some in
Florida," said Kellyr"I like the smell
there."
Kelly himself grew up in Boston
and now lives in Manhattan
where he performs regularly at
the Comedy Cellar New York's
comedy hot spot.
Recently, Kelly has built his sta-
tus as a premier comedian through
his appearances on "Tough Crowd
with Colin Quinn," "Premium
Blend" and "Last Call with Carson
Daly" (who can use all the comic
relief he can get).
Be sure to go to the show with
an open mind. Kelly is known to
spit more curse words in one per-
formance than-Samuel L. Jackson
managed in the entirety of "Pulp
Fiction."

Silence about herpes proves an unspoken danger


Editor's Note: This is a "Sex on the Avenue"
guest column. To submit your guest col-
umn, write to advice@alligator.org.
Shave morals. I follow a personal
pocketbook of ethics. I have a prom-
ising careen I take pride in healthy
habits. I enjoy wine. I eat fine foods. I
wear modest heels and a crisp suit jacket most
days. I relish picnics.
I respect myself.
I believe in love.
I believe in sex for love.
Gliding through my early twenties, I've
seemed to achieve many of my young aspira-
tions. I have more than I ever expected.
I also have an STD.


Insert judgment here.
Go ahead. I did.
When I discovered I have genital herpes,
I judged and scrutinized myself with a deep,
repulsive hatred. I was in a state of -
disbelief. Sex is one of my favorite Guesi
activities. I had a carefree attitude. I
had always been an open individual
comfortable with my sexuality a
bohemian "expression" of love and
purity. You could say I was a healthy
woman with a healthier sex drive. I
was not a whore. I simply craved sex
as much as my boyfriends.
I thought only dirty sluts gallivanted
around, infested with STDs until I got


slapped in the face by my own fantastical gal-
livanting.
All of life's roses grew rampant and over-
run with thorns.
I was about to start my young,
Column single, envy-worthy adulthood in
SManhattan with an exciting new
job, park-side apartment and
herpes.
"I love Thai food, I have herpes
and I crave Indie music."
Not the most alluring three
phrases to insert into flirtatious
banter. As if dating isn't difficult enough, now
I have something short of the plague to con-
fess if I want anything serious.


The culprit in herpes is the silence. Most
people don't know they have it when they
infect others, and many, including me, rarely
have symptoms. But I still have to deal with it,
and so will every potential lover I ever have.
'All this has led to an uncomfortable
awakening. In retrospect, I see the process of
acceptance has added a continual and neces-
sary grounding element to my psyche. I am
not perfect, I am not immune. No one is no
matter how they appear.
I cannot hide in a castle in the sky. I have
justbegun to face the consequences of my own
ignorance. But perhaps I can bring awareness
and help correct the stigmas. Perhaps I'll be
able to separate the men from the boys.

Play premiers with re-worked script


Cast worked closely with playwright


LANE NIESET
Avenue Writer

Combine test-tube babies, the ghost
of an ex-wife and a murder. They all
add up to create a new play called "The
Cornbread Man" by Judi Ann Mason.
The. play takes place in Carmel-
by-the-Sea, Calif. It is a mystery that
attempts to find out who killed the char-
acter Quincy's ex-wife, Ellen, and the
reasons behind the murder. The events
occur within a 24-hour time span and
show how a dysfunctional family oper-
ates in times of tragedy.
"It will question your stance on a lot
of social issues and prejudices," said Elle
Arnold, who plays Quincy's wife, Leana.
The cast is comprised of fine arts
graduate students and is directed by
Mikell Pinkney, associate professor in the
School of Theatre and Dance.
"This was a wonderful team of actors
who have worked really hard putting all
of their heart, soul and passion into the
play," said Candice Alexis Newsum, who
plays Quincy's murdered ex-wife, Ellen.
While most of the group has worked
-together on projects over the past year,
Marcus Thomas, who plays John, has
just begun his first year.


"It has been an incredible experience
because I had never worked with this
group before, and I had to get used to
the pace that I was expected to learn the
show," Thomas said.
The cast began working on the show
toward the end of Spring semester and
had even less time to
learn the new revisions It will quest

afterward. She listened to their feedback
and sent notes to the cast, continuously
adding and making changes to improve
the script.
"We got the same script, but it was en-
tirely different," said Michael Toth, who
plays Scotty, the test-tube son of Quincy
and Leana.
New monologues were added to the
script, and characters received more de-
fined roles and paths.
"It was a great experience in that

first opportunity to work with the play-

words, and we didn't have to translate
the text on our pwn."
After all the notes and changes that
were made, Fall's production will have
a different tone and feeling. The play has
come together and now focuses more on
the family aspect and relationships.
"The play has a stronger interior and
is more serious, but it still has its laughs,"
Pinkney said. "It is an

;ornbread Man" were a lot of messages,
pertaining to religion,
alcoholism and spirituality that could
make it confusing for viewers. Audience
members also brought questions into the
room concerning things such as race,
when the play itself is not necessarily
about race.
There is also-a different buzz for Fall's
production because- producers will be
flying in from New York to consider the
play for Broadway. This can be seen as
both an added blessing and pressure for
the cast.
The play premieres at the Constans
Theatre tomorrow at 8 p.m. It will run
at 8 p.m. Sept. 12 to 16, and at 2 p.m. on
Sept. 10 and 17.


Pizza buffet


delivers quality

Sou don't need a sign or menu to let you
know that Tony & Pat's Pizza & Subs is a
pizza place. You know it when you walk
in.
The pizza is just as good as it looks. They
have a great variety to choose from, and variety is a
necessity when dining at a buffet. They have all the
basic toppings, plus some fun extras. My personal
favorite was their vegetarian-topping pizza.
Tony & Pat's has some of the other pizza buf-
fet necessities as well, such
Nathan Telaraja as salad and soup. To me,
though, those were just there
to fill up counter space. Don't
get me wrong, none of it was
bad, but no one goes to a
pizza buffet for the unlimited
salad and crackers unless
you're one of the Olsen twins
orsomething.
The garlic knots are just.the right size so that eat-
ing one or two won't fill you up. Eat about four or
five like I did, and then you might not be able to stuff
down all the delicious pizza. I filled up with bread,
which is an amateur's mistake at a buffet.
If you're not interested in gaining a few pounds
with every meal here, you can pick up a sandwich or
some pasta instead of pizza. From Philly cheesesteak
to chicken parmesan, you'll find something to please
your palate.
Their lunch buffet is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
on weekdays and 5 p.m. until dosing on weekends.
They deliver up to two miles from 3501 SW Archer
Road, where they're located.


Film focuses on education C I n d a r


By SHEM FLEENOR
SAvenue Writer


It's almost comical how Orwellian
doublespeak has become so prevalent in
the national lexicon since the turn of the
21st century.
The Bush administration opened 20 mil-
lion acres of national forest land to logging
by waiving environmental laws, calling it
the "Healthy Forests Initiative."
They lowered the health
standards of the Clean Air This is a store
Act, allowing more emis- us. This is a
sions to be released into everyone wh
the air, calling it the "Clear the educate
Skies Initiative."
In his full-length mo- People shoL
tion picture, "The Votive \'oti e Pit' b
Pit," Gainesville resident about
Shamrock McShane, a writ-
er, actor and teacher has set Shamrock
out to prove "No Child Left screen
Behind" a misnomer for the Bush adminis-
tration education policy.
"It's a story about the American dream
turning into a nightmare," McShane said.
"It's a microcosm of the educational system
run amok."
The project's budget is fast approach-
ing $10,000, but McShane feels that it'll be
worth every penny if people walk out of
the theater thinking, "The public educa-
tional system is'a mess."
He said he feels that part of the problem
is that there is a political agenda meant to
privatize public education.
McShane explained: "The problem
is that teachers no longer have a say.
Education is no longer entrusted to the
teachers. It's been handed over to 'educa-
tors.' It's been given to politicians and ad-
ministrators. Teachers are little more than
babysitters."
The story has all the elements of a great
film, including a poetic jolt at the end.

The ensemble cast, including McShane,
Sara Morsey, Scot Davis, Rachel lannelli,
Dirk Drake, Julie Tidwell and Erica Corbett,
has been performing together for 15 years.
The chemistry among the cast is second to
none. The addition of the incomparable
Sara Dorsey to the mix brought the level of
chemistry to a whole new level.
"Everyone was so excited to work with
-her," McShane said. "She boosted every-
one's performance."
The story is a product of

hem. project's screenwriter, feels
that the story is a microcosm'


McShane of the all that is going wrong
writer in America.
Much like Halliburton has cornered the
market of reconstruction in Iraq, Scholastic
Inc. has cornered the market on education
in the states. Scholastic Inc. owns almost
every standardized test on the market,
including the Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test.
"This is a story about all of us," he'
said. "The story is about everyone who is
involved in the educational system. People
should see 'The Votive Pit' because it is
about them."
Though McShane plans on entering
"The Votive Pit" into state and national
festivals and 'would like to break even on
the project, he's trying to keep the goals
artistic.
"My biggest concern is that it succeeds
as a work of art," he said. "It would be
great if it changed someone's life."
"The Votive Pit" premiers Sept. 11 at the
Hippodrome Theatre. There will be screen-

McCarty Band releases CD


By ELIZABETH CASES
Avenue Contributing Writer

On Friday, the place to find booming live
music, a party atmosphere and hundreds of
frenzied fans was right here in Gainesville.
At Abbey Road, 238 W. University Ave., a
familiar band put on a live show to promote
the release of its new album. Chris McCarty
Band members who all either grew up or
went school in Gainesville performed
songs from their new album,
"The Next One."
Local K "The album is about girls,
MUS51 love and relationships," said
W- Julius Tobin, a member of the
band. "If you listen, it kind of
maps out the way relationships
can go good and how they can go bad."
The new album is the first time the band
has worked with creditable producers and
actually recorded in a studio, he said.
"Everything else we recorded in our living
rooms," Tobin said.
Since their first album, "Dreaming in
Stereo," a new drummer has been added to
the band. Tim Mulberry joined The Chris
McCarty Band after their original drummer


got married and began law school.
"Tim has a different dynamic that meshes
so well and adds flavor," Tobin said. "Our
songwriting has matured, and because we
have been working together for so long, ev-
erything has just begun to flow in this new
album."
According to GainesvilleBands.com,
the band schedules nearly 200 dates a year
throughout the Southeast and Middle Atlantic
states and has even performed at Gator
Growl.
"Working with great musicians and watch-
ing them further their career is the best part,"
Dan Balassone, a booking agent for the band,
said. "It is a great feeling to stand at a show
that you made happen, and get to enjoy it."
The new album was sold at the show but
can also be found on band's Web site. It will
also be available shortly on iTunes.
"I am now a senior and have been to all
of their shows since I came to UF," Danielle
Kirsner, a 22-year-old hospitality management
major said. "I just bought their new album,
and it definitely lives up to my expectations."
The high energy and passion that The
Chris McCarty Band demonstrates onstage is
felt by its audience.

The Chris McCarty Band performs at Abbey
"They create music that speaks to all peo-
ple, not just college students," Kirsner said. "It
really shows in their new album."
The Chris McCarty Band will continue .
touring until the end of October to promote
its new album.
"It has been a long road," said McCarty,

who played a song dedicated to all the people
who have supported the band along the way.
"I think a lot of people in Gainesville have
had the chance to meet the band or one of its
members and have a great experience with
that," Balassone said. "It is hard not to root for
such great guys."

Gators well-adjusted heading into FSU match


* SEVERAL UF NEWCOMERS WILL
FACE FSU FOR THE FIRST TIME.

By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

Any UF student would probably agree
with Daniela Sanchez.'
Tyo schools, one rivalry. Florida State
versus UE.
Sanchez calls it a war.
When the two soccer teams meet this
Friday night in Tallahassee, it will be different
than usual. While UF coach Becky Burleigh
said her players know her opponents well,
this will be the first time many of the Gators
face No. 2 FSU. UF sports 10 true freshmen
and three transfer players. The Seminoles have
seven true freshmen.
Still, if you ask No. 19 UF (2-1-1), these new
players have no problem acclimating them-
selves to the situation.
It helps that UF flaunts improved team
chemistry from last season.
"Our team has definitely not only come
together on the field but off the field," said
Sanchez, a junior captain. "That has a lot to
do with our outcome. The freshmen and the


sophomores have stepped up, and everyone
has respected each other. I think [respecting
each other] is the biggest thing. The coaches
have, too. It's just a friendship on and off the
field."
Plus, as junior transfer Stacy Bishop point-
ed out, there was extra motivation to come
together.
"I think after the disappointment last
season, nobody wanted to go through that
again," Bishop said. "The chemistry started
right away in last spring, and since then,
we've just been building on it."
However, even strong team chemistry does
not always equal success. After going 1-1 last
weekend, including a 1-0 loss to Fresno State,
Burleigh called the weekend "a little disap-
pointing."
Burleigh said her team lacked aggressive-
ness for the whole 90-minute contest, but she
did admit that a motivational speech should
not be necessary against the Seminoles.
"We won't have to do too much to motivate
our team to play this weekend," she said. "It's
one of those games that we circle on our cal-
endar every year. The rankings can be thrown
out the window in this game. For us, this is a
game about pride and a rivalry. I think it'll be
a pretty emotional game. Both teams are going
to get after it."


However, part of that emotion may be
missing this weekend. Last year, injurine
riddled the Gators. Now, after losing.junior
KeLeigh Hudson for four to six weeks with
a grade-two right MCL sprain, the Gators
are witnessing a recurring theme. UF is also
without All-America defender Melanie Booth,
who continues to train with the Canadian
World Cup team.
"I think after the disappointment
last season, nobody wanted to go
through that again."
Stacy Bishop
UFjunior forward

"You can't replace them either one is
irreplaceable," Sanchez said. "Basically, our
coaches have told us that we have 21 players
that can step it up. I know this week that you
can't compare FSU to. Louisiana-Lafayette.
But as-you saw, [freshmen] came in [against
Lafayette] and stepped it up, and the level of
play didn't drop."
Those fresh faces will have to continue to
improve to cope with an unforgiving sched-
ule. Already, UF has played host to then-
No. 1 Portland and now will face the No. 2
Seminoles.


"I don't think that Fresno State loss will
ever happen again," Bishop said. "We felt
what it was like, and we don't want that to
happen again."
The Gators may have proved that Sunday,
defeating Louisiana-Lafayette 6-1.
That effort is something that the coaching
staff and Sanchez expect against FSU.
"I'm not national player this or that, but if
you work hard as a team and if you help your
teammate, we're going to get there," Sanchez
said. "It doesn't matter how good of an indi-
vidual you are, but as a team we're together,
and if you can help someone out, we're going
to go pretty far."

HOME BITTER HOME?: Although the home
squad usually holds an emotional advan-
tage, that may not hold true this weekend.
During the past two years, the road team
has won the UF-FSU regular-season game.
Burleigh even joked that she didn't remember
the last time the home team had won in the
series.
Even with the edge going to road teams,
Sanchez is taking nothing for granted.
"It's frustrating losing at home," Sanchez
said. "But every year's going to be a great
game. FSU has a great team and great coach-
es."

McGinnis sisters to reunite


UF plays Illinois State Saturday


By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
jriarina@alligator.org

They share the same height, the
same passion for volleyball, the same
blonde hair and the same last name.
But they do not share the same
school colors.
On Saturday, when the No. 6 UF
volleyball team takes on Illinois State,
UF junior setter Angie McGinnis will
look straight across the net and into
the eyes of her younger sister Mary
- a Redbirds freshman outside hit-
ter.
Even though Mary plays a differ-
ent position, she was constantly com-
pared to her older sister, who was
named Michigan's Miss Volleyball
in 2004.
"She doesn't get intimidated by
the pressure, which I commend her
for," McGinnis said. "[During high-
school] interviews, she would just be
like, 'No, it doesn't bother me that I
have to live in her shadow because
I have a different role and I'm doing
my own thing.'"
Now that the sisters have moved
onto college and no longer play on
the same team, their family lives in a
house divided.
Fourteen members of the
McGinnis clan will be in attendance


at the O'Connell Center on Saturday
night to cheer on the duo.
"I think they have the whole little
like half-shirt Redbird and half-shirt
Gators," McGinnis said.
However, that won't stop her
youngest sister and cousins from
rooting for Mary and the rest of the
Redbirds.

"She doesn't get intimidated
by the pressure, which I com-
mend her for. At first, she'd
get interviews and she would
just be like, 'No, it doesn't
bother me that I have to live in
her shadow because I have a
different role and I'm doing my
own thing."'
.Angie McGinnis
UFjunior setter

"I'm actually a little more compet-
itive than my sister, and I'm always
like, 'Yeah we're going to beat you'
- joking around," McGinnis said.
"So the [family] wants her to win."
McGinnis wouldn't mind her sis-
ter winning either -- as long as she's
not playing UF.
Friday night, Illinois State takes
on Florida A&M. and the UF player


will watch her sister attentively.
McGinnis and the rest of the
Gators will scout the competition
before UF takes on Central Florida
at 7 p.m.
"I'll probably stay reserved, but
I'll probably clap for a few plays and
stuff," McGinnis said. "It'll be excit-
ing to see her play on my court and
not have to root against her because
we're playing her."

AIRPLANE PAIN: Several players are
fighting off congestion and fatigue
stemming from UF's trip to Hawaii
last weekend. :
McGinnis complained of a head
cold.
The sickness then spread to ju-
niors Marcie Hampton and sopho-
more Kelsey Bowers.
"We're all kind of just battling
jetlag and sickness and soreness,"
Hamptbn said. "It comes with the
territory."
As long as the Gators drink plenty
of water and get enough Vitamin C,
Bowers said she doesn't anticipate
the bug being a problem.
Unlike her teammates, junior Kari
Klinkenborg has taken a turn for the
better. The middle blocker received
some good news about her injured
ankle this week.
Klinkenborg has been given per-
mission to practice in a limited capac-
ity at 20 jumps a session.

Blue scrimmage. McGinnis will play her sister Saturday.

Hevesy: 0-line must


improve or else


S UF'S OFFENSIVE LINE
STRUGGLED SATURDAY.

By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org

As far as offensive line night-
mare reruns go, UF's season
opener drew stellar ratings.,
Among other things, the d6ja
vu episode featured an Oscar-
worthy performance from a Gators
offensive line that failed to protect
lc1d actor and quarterback Chris
Leak. But if there was one direc-
tor who would have reshot the
familiar footage, it was offensive
line coach John Hevesy. Hevesy
has downright had it with his
position's mediocrity.
"It's unacceptable for [Leak] to
get hit, especially from his back-
side," Hevesy said of the Southern
Miss game. "There's going to be
repercussions for it. That shit's go-
ing to end."
Leak wasn't exactly battered
like he oftentimes has been in the


past. But just like so many times
last season, the quarterback was
running for his life throughout
the game. He was sacked twice.
and rarely had a good four to five
seconds to survey the action and
let it fly.
If UF's offense is going to do
anything, spectacular this season,
its offensive line must take it to the
next level.
"I'm not going to wait four
years for this to happen," Hevesy
said. "It's going to change this
year."
The Gators continue to entrust
Leak's safety to five linemen who,
at most, .were part-time starters
last season: Steve Rissler, Drew
Miller, Jim Tartt, Phil Trautwein
and Carlton Medder. Yet these
linemen still practiced with the
first and second teams in 2005 and
have studied Meyer's schemes for
consecutive seasons.
The. obvious question is the
following: Is UF's offensive line ca-
pable of improving, or does it need

SEE O-LINE, PAGE 29


UF offensive line coach John Hevesy yells at former lineman Randy Hand during the Gators' 21-17 loss to
LSU in 2005. Hevesy hopes his 2006 offensive line will come around soon.


UF's secondary prayers answered


Meyer cast in Nike ad


By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org

UF coach Urban Meyer hates small
talk, but he spent part of the summer
helping film a Nike commercial that
featured just that little talk.
"I was there for two days and
what did I say, two words?" asked
Meyer, who flew to Los Angeles to
participate in the shoot.
The "Football is Everything"
commercial features a pretend high
school team that includes NFL
stars like Michael Vick (Atlanta),
LaDainian Tomlinson (San Diego),
Brian Urlacher (Chicago), Troy

t. Jude, patron saint of lost and hopeless
causes, must have been spending some
time around UF's defensive backfield,
for what was once lost has now been found
again.
For the second consecutive year under the
new Gators coaching staff, the secondary is
being fortified by old lost souls.
The backbone of the group last year was
the duo of Jarvis Herring and Vernell Brown,
each of whom had to deal with his fair share
of struggles.
Herring had been arrested on Ron Zook's
watch but blossomed in 2005 under Urban
Meyer, receiving the Fergie Ferguson Team
Leadership Award and the Southeastern
Conference Defensive Player of the Week
award for his performance against Florida
State.
As for Brown, he could do no wrong,
morphing into the Face of Florida Football
and being named team MVP.
Not bad for a converted wide receiver.
With the loss of those two and the
dismissal of Avery Atkins, many saw the
defensive backfield as the weak link of an
otherwise stellar defense.
It may have been just one game, but St.

Joiner, Reggie Lewis,

and Ryan Smith.
While some may
say the guy responsible
for the transformation
is Meyer, the group's
angel lies elsewhere:

Chuck Heater.
Once so intense that he cracked a bench.
against a wall while coaching Ohio State
against Michigan, the man has now become
the changer of careers.
Except he insists that it isn't him working
the miracles.
"It's the kids," Heater said. "Understand,
this program is a lot about accountability and
every day you're evaluated, and you have to
perform or not perform. I think at some
point, those older guys just get tired of being
that underachiever, so I think kids kind of
take it upon themselves."
Whatever the reason, these guys had no

Central Florida making climb to join elite teams


bP W 4


By ANTONIO GONZALEZ
Alligator Staff Writer
agonzalez@alligator.org

Although Central Florida
was only 15 minutes away
from his house, UF defensive
tackle Clint McMillan never
wanted to play there.
The Golden Knights
never considered him either.
McMillan was too good, and
UCF was too bad.
"UCF never really recruited
me," said McMillan, a redshirt
junior who graduated from
Oviedo High. "I guess I was
out of their league."
But things have changed
since then.
With Coach George O'Leary
leading the way, UCF has be-
come a respectable program
that is garnering more wins and
standout recruits than ever.
After going a combined 3-20
in 2003 and 2004, the Golden
Knights finished 8-5 last sea-
son, playing in the Conference
USA Championship and the
Hawaii Bowl.
Although UCF lost both
those games, it finally started
to earn respect from others
- including local players.
"It's definitely a program
that's on the rise," McMillan
said. "They got a lot of guys
[now] that could have gone
to Southeastern Conference,
Big Ten and Atlantic Coast
Conference schools."
The dramatic turnaround
began after O'Leary arrived


in 2004.
He suffered a miserable 0-11
record that season, but O'Leary
played mostly underclassmen
as he tried to prepare for the
future.
O'Leary said he wanted to
get players to believe in his
program. And once they did,
the team took off.
A better record has also
made recruiting easier for
O'Leary. And getting the best
players especially the best
in-state players is O'Leary's
primary goal.

"Central Florida I don't
think has a good foot-
ball coach but a great
football coach."
Urban Meyer
UF football coach

"It's a great football state,"
O'Leary said. "Coaches can
only take you so far. I think
good players take over big
games. The key is recruiting
and getting key players that
have a passion for football aid
great intensity for the game.
"I think the state of Florida
has a lot of those kids. And
hopefully you end up with
your own share of them even-
tually."
O'Leary said he has seen
drastic improvement in the
quality- of his recruits, par-
ticularly with local and in-state
players. But progress is being


made in other areas as well.
After averaging about
20,000 fans early last fall, atten-
dance jumped to almosT52,000
for last year's Conference USA
title game. And next season,
UCF will have a new stadium.
UCF also has one of the larg-
est student populations in the
country at 47,800 to go along
with its metropolitan JIcation
in Orlando attractive op-
tions for any prize recruit.
But building -a program
with little foundation is not an
easy task. It might take more
than a few successful seasons
to be considered a perennial
bowl contender.
UF coach Urban Meyer has
built up two such programs
- Bowling Green and Utah
- and said UCF is actually do-
ing better than normal.
"I think they are much
further ahead," Meyer said.
"Central Florida I don't think
has a good football coach but a
great football coach." '
Although UCF has come
a long way the past couple
of years, it's probably years
behind the Big Three UF,
Florida State and Miami. But
the talent pool in Florida is so
large that the Golden Knights
may be able to steal a few re-
cruits from their in-state foes.
"Alot of talent slips through
the cracks between Florida,
Florida State and Miami,"
McMillan said. "That's a per-
fect place for them to go."


Meyer regrets not getting Fayson involved

an influx of experience and
talent that could take another
year? With Tennessee looming
a little more than a week away,
the Gators know exactly what
answer they need to hear.
"We better improve,"
Hevesy said. "There's no op-
tions or you won't be playing.
We'll get someone else.
"But it's not something like
we're lacking a right leg and we
need to get a right leg. It's just
an understanding of the funda-
mentals."
Hevesy said his line failed
to pick-up on minute details
that could have resulted in
improved blocking. During the
game, UF's linemen chased
opposing players for too long
and took many of the defense's
looks for granted.
"And if you assume some-
thing, you're made an ass of,"
Hevesy said.
Judging by the fact that
the linemen continue to learn,


the tide could begin to turn
Saturday against Central
Florida, even if just a little.
Freshman Maurice Hurt should
make more of an impact as he
continues to recover from ar-
throscopic surgery. In a week
or two, the Gators should have
the services of starter Ronnie
Wilson, who is rehabbing a
fractured ankle.
Meanwhile, one bright
spot is redshirt junior Carlton
Medder. Medder started slowly
at UF but
Gators has al-
Offensive line ready es-
tablished
himself as one of the team's best
downfield blockers.
"He was an immature kid
when he got here," Hevesy said.
"He didn't have a good idea
of what was right, what was
wrong and how to do things.
But he's become a terrific kid
who wants what's best for the
team. I'm absolutely thrilled
with Carlton Medder. It's a joy
to watch someone come such a
long way."

fearing a neck stinger, has been
upgraded from questionable to
probable. Freshman safety Bryan
Thomas, who has a knee injury,
has begun practicing in limited
fashion and could return as early
as next week's Tennessee game.

FAYSON READY TO PLAY: Meyer
second-guessed his failure to get
freshman receiver Jarred Fayson
involved in the season opener.
"If I had to do it all over again
I would have flipped him the ball
- even late in the game just to

get that first one out of the way,"
Meyer said.
Fayson boasts the 4.3 40-yard-
dash speed that already has his
coaching staff placing him in the
same category as fellow fresh-
man Percy Harvin.
However, he

choice but to be accountable, and it has given them
something to prove.
Lewis contemplated transferring after being
switched from wide receiver. Joiner has rehabili-
tated himself in all sorts of ways, as Meyer said.
"I could tell you a couple of stories, but I don't
know if his family would appreciate that," Meyer
said.
Smith was a freshman All-American at Utah
but fell out of favor with the new coaching staff
when Meyer took the Gators job.
This off-season, Smith was tossed a life raft in
the form of new NCAA transfer rules.

practice.
"I'm just hoping to [get into a
game]," Fayson said.

GATORS TO RECEIVE RINGS: The
members of the 2005-06 UF
men's basketball team will be
presented with championship
rings prior to Saturday's UCF
football game. The Gators com-
piled a 33-6 record last season
and won the school's first-ever
national title by downing UCLA
73-57 in the title game.
UF encourages spectators to
be in the Swamp by 5:55 p.m. to
witness the ceremony.


And then there's McCollum, who has surprised
many outsiders by the fact that he is playing at all.
Yet there they all were Saturday, holding Southern
Miss to just 4.8 yards per pass attempt.
"We proved everybody wrong," Lewis said
after Saturday's game. "Going into fall camp, we
were the weak link of the team, and we used that
as motivation to push us through camp."
So yes, it was only one game, and it was
Southern Miss.
But thus far, UF's coaching staff has had noth-
ing but positive words for its new band of castoffs,
save for when Smith misaligned on his first play in
orange and blue.
If the angels and the saints have anything to
say about it, I wouldn't bet against them.
