'To N
Towing,



safety



at odds

By DOMINICK TAO
SAlligator Writer
dtao@alligator.org

Roaming tow trucks often leave
people in Gainesville stranded,
sometimes late at night and with no
idea how to reclaim their vehicles.
A recommendation by
Gainesville's Public Safety
Committee prompted city commis-
sioners on Monday to request chang-
es to roam towing rules, making life
easier for the illegally parked.
Roam towing is when tow compa-
nies find and remove
LoCal illegally parked cars
News without the car hav-
ing been called in on
a complaint. These companies are
usually under contract with property
owners.
The public safety committee's
recommendations include:
Adding the address and
phone numbers of tow companies to
roam towing signs.
Asking people with towed
cars to call ahead before picking
them up.
Posting directional maps to
tow yards on roam towing signs.
"What brought us to this point are
people who find themselves without
a car in the late hours of the night,"
said Gainesville Police Lt. S.A. Scott,
who helped advise the commission
on tow-related safety issues. "We're
afraid people might get into danger-
ous situations." -
The recommendation to have
people with towed cars call ahead
was made to lower incidences of

SEPT. 11

Students, faculty remember attacks
By LINDSEY FRANCO
Alligator Writer
Ifranco@alligator.org

UF stood still Monday morning as students, faculty
and administrators took a moment of silence to honor the .
victims and heroes of Sept. 11, 2001.
UF President Bernie Machen and Provost Janie Fouke
joined University Police officers at a flag-lowering cer-
emony outside Tigert Hall. Officers clad in full uniform
stood with black stripes over their badges to indicate
mourning, and they saluted three half-staff flags in inem-
ory of those who died.
The campus bustled with activities all day Monday '
to commemorate the fifth anniversary of the attacks that
killed nearly 3,000 people in New York and Washington,
D.C.
Members of various Jewish groups set
up a 5-foot-tall replica of the twin towers
on Turlington Plaza. A foam wall called
the "good deed wall" linked the two
wooden towers.
To participate in the good deed proj-
ect, participants wrote down a good
deed they planned to perform on a piece
Maclen of paper. Then, they attached the paper
to a photo of a Sept. 11 victim and fastened it to the wall
adjoining the model twin towers.
More than 1,100 good deeds were posted by the end of
the day, said Rabbi Berl Goldman.
"We did this with a hope that these universal acts of
hope and kindness will collectively transform this dark
day of 9/11 into positive energy, with the goal that one
day we'll live in a world where 9/11 won't even be a pos-
sibility, let alone a reality," Goldman said.
A block north, members of UF's College Republicans
read the names of people who died during the Sept.
11 attacks in a midday ceremony on the Plaza of the
Americas.
"It's one of those things where you don't expect people Andrew Stanfill / Alligator

Man arrested after bathing in pond near City Hall


Bather coaxed out by police


By DOMINICK TAO
Alligator Writer

Ramine Dehgan didn't want to
shower at the homeless shelter, so
he decided to take a bath in the pond
outside City Hall.
Dehgan, 41, was arrested shortly


after Gainesville Police coaxed him
out of the water Monday afternoon.
He was charged with trespass-
ing and alcohol possession in a city
park.
"Come on out," Cpl. Wendy Lord
said to Dehgan as he reclined in the
shallow, algae-tinted water.


Dehgan only wore soggy shorts
and stammered unintelligibly.
"Its so slippery. I can't," he said.
"OK. Why don't you try it on
your hands and
Local knees," suggested
News Lord.
"It's so slippery ...
I've fallen down here four times. I
like the fish," Dehgan replied. His


hands and knees were bleeding. The
rocks in the pond were sharp.
The officer took out her note-
pad. She started asking questions.
"What's your name, sir?"
Dehgan groaned. "Aw, don't take
me to jail now."
He jumped, slipped and grabbed
the pond's edge and crawled out.
He told Lord he didn't need


medical attention.
"Where do you live?" Lord
asked.
"That's a good question,"
Dehgan said.
Lord then asked why was he in
the water.
"I was really dirty," Dehgan said,
"and didn't want to go to the home-
less shelter for a shower."


PUBLIC SAFETY

Police: attempted robbery at first mistaken for joke


POLICE SAY AN ATTEMPTED ROB-
BERY AT A BP STATION INCLUDED
FLYING WRENCHES.

By JAMES RIGNEY
Alligator Writer

John Roxby thought Delron White, 41,
was joking when White told him he was
being robbed.
White tried to rob the Island Food Store
at the British Petroleum gas station on 931


W. University Ave. Sunday night, but in-
stead of getting money, he got chased out
of the store and hit with a wrench, accord-
ing to an arrest report.
He later started a fight with police, ac-
cording to the report.
White entered the store and'told Roxby
"Give me all your money!" but Roxby
thought it was a joke and told him "No,"
according to the report.
White "continued insisting that Roxby
empty the cash register and give him all


the money," the report stated.
White left when Roxby said he was call-
ing the cops, but Roxby saw White a few
minutes later sitting outside the store.
Roxby went outside with a wrench and
struck White after White approached him
in "an aggressive manner."
The blow angered White, and he chased
Roxby back into the store, according to the
report.
"Roxby then stated [White] got him
into a 'bear hug' and would not let go,"


according to the report.
Roxby hit him again with the wrench
and went outside to call 911 from the pay
phone.
White fled, but police later found him
near the BP gas station.
White told an officer to "F--- off!" and
shoved him in the chest, according to the
report.
White was taken to the ground by three
officers and arrested for resisting an officer
with violence.

SNAP use increases


Popularity follows better service


By PAULA BOADA
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF's free late-night taxi service is a
little closer to living out its namesake.
It still won't appear at the snap of
your fingers, but the Student Nighttime
Auxiliary Patrol has doubled its phone
lines and- available dispatchers to
speed up its service.
Since those changes were made last
winter, more people have taken advan-
tage of the service.
"I don't think it's because demand
has risen. I just think it's because the
opportunity to get through the phone
lines has gotten greater," University
Police spokesman Captain Jeff
Holcomb said.
According to Holcomb, SNAP an-
swers 290 to 300 phone calls a night


and transports more than 3,000 people
every month.
The most common complaints stu.-
dents make about SNAP are tedious
hold times on the phone and long
waits for vans, said UPD officer Jacob
Pruitt, the liaison between SNAP and
the student body.
SNAP is run by students and super-
vised by UPD. It is available to UF stu-
dents and faculty and their guests.
Cayla Townes, an anthropology se-
nior, has used the service to get back to
her dormitory late at night.
"It was really nice having SNAP
come and get me when I didn't have
a ride around campus," Townes said.
"It not only helped me out, but it made
my parents feel more at ease knowing I
wasn't walking back to my dorm alone
at night."


Yearbook directs students


By DANA CHANG
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF students are creating an alternative
yearbook, "The Black Book," that showcas-
es the university's minority organizations.
The president of the book's publishing
company was inspired to create the book
after finding out that the Black Student
Union was allotted two to four pages in the
UF yearbook.
"That's just not enough space," said
Desiree Chase, president of Intellectual Ink
Publications.
"[The book] is dedicated to featuring the
programs, people and organizations that
serve as resources and inspiration for black
students," said Chase, a UF junior.
The book will list more than 66 black
and minority organizations.


"It's a way to get our name out to the
community and let them know what we're
about, which is achievement," said Paul
Drayton, 20, president of the Zeta Phi chap-
ter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc.
It will be an annual
Multicult.lral publication, scheduled
for release sometime in
the Spring.
The bulk of the cost to distribute the
book will come from advertisements.
Advertising prices start at $100.
Students and student organizations can
purchase ads at a discounted rate that starts
at $65.
Presale of the book will begin Oct. 7
at Soulfest 2006, a multicultural event in
Dickinson Hall.
The book will initially cost $30, and its
price will increase throughout the school
year. It should not exceed $45, Chase said.

SG political parties hold events to draw students


* ACTION AND SWAMP SEEK
STUDENT INPUT.

By JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Writer
jdasilva@alligator.org

As Student Government's Fall
election draws near, political parties
are turning to students for help in
drawing up their platforms.
The Action Party is in the midst
of a weeklong event called "Students


Want Action Week," which kicked
off with a tailgate before Saturday's
football game. Party officials set up
tables at West University Avenue
and spoke to about 1,000 students,
party leader Tommy Jardon said.
Chris Chase, the party's vice
presidential candidate, said he got
feedback from students about issues
he had never thought about before.
For example, a Muslim student
said that because UF's dining halls
are not open before sunrise, he was
unable to eatbefore dawn to prepare


"I want to make sure the
platform I'm running on is
student-based."
Chris Chase
Action Party vice presidential can-
didate

for the fast during Ramadan. Chase
said the student's concerns prompt-
ed him to consider religious sensi-
tivity as a possible issue for SG.
"I want to make sure the plat-


form I'm running on is student-
based," Chase said.
The Swamp Party is also empha-
sizing student outreach in creating
its platform. Unlike Action, Swamp
has not released any plans for the
semester.
In order to gather platform ideas
from, students, the party held a plat-
form workshop Monday afternoon.
Party leaders wrote down ideas
proposed by nearly 50 Swamp
candidates and 10 other concerned
students at the meeting, party leader


Keith Hardwick said. The workshop
was a great success, Hardwick said,
but declined to reveal the ideas.
Unlike other parties, which at-
tempted to garner student ideas
and support, the Pants Party held a
"strategery" meeting Sunday night.
"As far as seeking out seri-
ous ideas, the party still holds the
position that there's too much se-
riousness in SG," Pants Party vice
presidential candidate Bruce Haupt
said. "We don't want to dilute our
message of fun."

Top 10 two-step

Machen must deliver on

promises to students
W hat kind of university is this? Now, more than ever,
it's an important question.
UF is at a crossroads. We can remain what
we are now a prestigious "Public Ivy" with bargain-
basement tuition or we can follow UF President Bernie
Machen on his quest for the elite Top 10. We can't do both.
And sooner or later, we have to make a choice.
It's a divisive issue with good arguments on both sides.
Critics of Machen's plan insist that UF is already a great
bargain. They're right. In this year's U.S. News & World
Report rankings, UF tied with four other public universities
for 13th place. All four have higher tuition than UF in
some cases, much higher.
At Penn State, for example, students pay $11,024 a year
- more than triple the cost of attending UF. The University
of Texas charges more than double what we pay. If UF stu-
dents are getting a comparable education at a fraction of the
cost, some say, why mess with a good thing?
Then again, Machen makes the Top 10 sound like a great
place to be. True, UF would have to raise tuition to get there.
But think of everything we'd get in return smaller class-
es, more academic counselors and fewer sections taught by
teaching assistants. Sounds pretty good, doesn't it?
Unfortunately, the plan isn't unfolding quite the way
Machen promised.
On Sept. 1, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences
announced it would replace only 26 of the 80 professors
expected to retire in the next three years meaning more
work for CLAS faculty members who stick around. By last
Friday, some professors were already looking for new jobs.
Who can blame them? After all, no one wants to do more
work for the same pay. But the real victim here is the student
body. With fewer professors, we'll have more and more TAs
teaching bigger and bigger classes. In other words, we'll get
the opposite of what Machen promised us.
Of course, bigger classes won't impress the rankings
people either. That's why the administration's decisions
have been so hard to understand lately somehow, they
manage to hurt students and UF's ranking at the same
time.
Case in point: Starting this semester, UF will award in-
coming National Merit scholars less than half of what they
used to get.
"Boo hoo" you might think. "Those poor National Merit
scholars."
But recruiting them lots of there is one of the few
goals Machen has actually accomplished in his Top 10
campaign. The people at U.S. News & World Report love
that kind of thing. So cutting back now seems downright
perverse.
Here at the Alligator, we're all for boosting UF's stand-
ing in the college rankings. Our classes are too big. There
are too many TAs teaching upper-division courses. But
changing UF won't be cheap.
If Machen and company expect middle-class students
and their families to foot the bill, they need to show us they
can deliver their promises. (Smaller classes, not bigger ones,
would be a good start.) Otherwise, we're left holding the
bag paying higher tuition with nothing to show for it.
So far, we're not convinced. Mr. President, the ball's in
your court.

New ombudsman is readers' best friend


he sardonic British writer Samuel Butler wrote,
"The most important service rendered by the
press and the magazines is that of educating
people to approach printed matter with distrust."
More than a few of you may agree with that. Here
at UF, the Alligator provides a service and many
distrust it. But like any service provider, the Alligator
wants its customers to be happy.
To that end, the editors have decided to give you, the
readers, an editor of your own. So meet your new om-
budsman. If you don't like the funny nomenclature, you
can call me the public editor, readers' advocate, point of
contact, customer service representative or lightning rod
for criticism.
If you want to curse me out in public, I answer to
Mike'br Jayne or some combination of the two.
If you think the Alligator is too elitist, then I'm your
populist. If you don't understand some of the things
it does, I'll explain them. If you have a complaint, I'll
investigate it. If you want to talk, I'll listen. I'll discuss
some of the more common issues and topics in my col-
umn, and weigh in on specific instances where the pa-
per does something that not everyone agrees with.
Perennial themes will include the following. One:
explaining why the paper reports on some things and
not others. Two: dispelling the cloak-and-dagger air
surrounding newsroom goings-on. Three: showing how
and why journalists, especially stressed-out student re-
porters and editors, occasionally make mistakes. Four:
exposing bias and selective coverage.
Here's the bottom line. I will strive to be fair and
objective and to call things as I see them. I get paid
whether I agree with the paper or not.


Mike Jayne
Ombudsman
mjayne@alligator.org


If that doesn't really answer
your question about what an om-
budsman is, then all I can say is
that I'm kind of a big deal around
here. And I need something to
do.
So holler at me when you
see me running to class through
Turlington Plaza. Bring your
tomatoes to our upcoming town
hall meeting. (All the editors will


be there, too.)
Sign up for my free press release seminar, where
I'll show you how to tell us what news to print. (More
on these events will be forthcoming.) But most of all,
please e-mail mjayne@alligator.org.
After all, I have to fill my columns with something
- and they don't let me write about sports. Hate it or
love it, this is your newspaper. It's the largest student-
run paper in the country and an award-winning one
to boot so take some pride in it. If it's not something
you're proud of, then only you, the responsible student
citizen, can be the impetus for change by holding it ac-
countable.
You wouldn't stay quiet if Urban Meyer made a bad
call that cost us a game. So why should you stay quiet
when you think a bad story, article or cartoon compro-
mises clarity, belies truth or hurts feelings? Of course,
if you think the Alligator is actually doing something
right, I would love to discuss that also. Thank you for
reading. I look forward to hearing from you.

New Facebook only displays information students choose


We are no longer Generation Y. We are now,
according to Time magazine, "Generation
Facebook." We all have a profile on the college
networking site. We all check it at least five times a day.
We all have a ton of friends. And until last Tuesday, we
all loved it.
But that changed with the debut of Facebook's seem-
ingly invasive and vastly unpopular news feed
feature.
But let's get two things straight. One: The news feed
doesn't tell you anything you couldn't see before. Two:
You put that information on your profile in the first
place.
Everyone could see who your friends were or who you'
were dating. Everyone could see that one of your interests
was vodka, even though your birth date also visible
- showed that you weren't quite 21. Everyone can still
see what you're into only now they don't have to click
on your profile page to see it.
What about Brody Ruckus, who created the group, "If
this group reaches 100,000 my girlfriend will have a three-
some"? I think we know what he's into.
By the way, it only took him three days and 80 minutes


to reach his goal.
UF constantly bombards us with
pleas to keep our private informa-
S .- tion private. The rules of thumb
are obvious: Don't post anything
Jessica Holland you wouldn't want to appear on
Jess Suggests the front page of a newspaper, have
etters@algator.org a current or future employer read
letters@alligator.org
or be seeing by your sweet little old
granny.
Yet we are all guilty of posting too much information.
We all have tons of "friends" who aren't really friends.
How many of those 437 people do you actually know?
And out of that number, how many do you actually speak
with on a regular basis?
So how can so many people get so freaked out over a
so-called "invasion of privacy"?
Is this revolt "the sign of growing revolutionary activ-
ism among the Internet generation," as Time magazine
asked?
As Time concluded, "Not really." In fact, very few stu-
dents went out into the real world to protest.
There were no calls for people to delete their accounts.


Did anyone see any riots on campus? The only thing most
students did was join a Facebook group or 10 which,
ironically, was then reported on the news feed and
then sent their "friends" a link to the group. Maybe a few
signed an online petition.
Before Facebook caved to its critics and implemented
new privacy features, only two protests had been orga-
nized. One was scheduled for Monday, at Facebook's
California headquarters, and the other was an online boy-
cott scheduled for today. But both were canceled. Hardly
a march on Washington.
The boycott Web site daywithoutfacebook.blogspot
.com actually thanked Facebook for allowing students
to keep their information off the news feed, saying, "A
day without your site was going to be tough." But the
problem remains there's too much information on
Facebook in the first place, and people can still see it if
they know where to look.
So here's a novel idea. If you're so concerned about
your privacy, do the unthinkable: Stop whining and
- gasp! delete your Facebook account.

column appeals on Tuesdays.

Hamster race deserved better coverage
"Hamster owners cheer for rodents
rolling to victory," a story in Monday's
Alligator, was biased against Thunder
Foot, the hamster I trained for the com-
petition. The article stated that Thunder
Foot "looked more like a mouse than a
hamster."
Thunder Foot is a dwarf hamster, and
I'm sure that if he could read he would
be deeply offended by this mischaracter-
ization. Besides, my strategy was to use
Thunder Foot's small stature as an asset.
Has no one at the Alligator ever heard of
Muggsy Bogues?
In the future, I expect the Alligator to
show more professionalism when covering
hamster races.

CLAS reorganization long overdue
Contrary to the headlines on university
reorganization in Monday's Alligator, my
morale and that of many other College
of Liberal Arts and Sciences faculty has
not been this high since the mid-1970s,
when President Robert Marston and Dean


Charles F. Sidman arrived on campus.
The loudest cries for shared governance
are now coming from those chairs and their
frightened followers who in recent years
have dominated the scene by squelching all
dissent from the ranks and who manipulat-
ed inept deans into obeying cherry-picked
committees of sycophants (including many
of the college-picked senators).
The new provost is taking some very
long-needed stable-cleaning steps toward
reforming some very weak departments
in the college (and a weakened college
itself), reinstituting accountability, respon-
sibility and, eventually, legitimacy, where
all have been sorely lacking. My own
department, English, is one such depart-
ment. The provost has listened carefully to
faculty and has examined these programs
with diligence, and is now ready to lead a
reform movement, helping to reorganize
them from the top down it is precisely
what good provosts are hired to do.
Significantly, those programs that have
operated well in recent years are being
rewarded by the same plan being deplored
by the weak departments. And I am certain
the promise is that when departments learn
how to conduct business not merely to
reward themselves, but to further learn-
ing here and scholarship internationally,


they too will again receive the additional
funding they once had, and that is required
to produce a high-quality department or
program.

Rude students can spoil Swamp fun
As a UF student and an avid football fan,
I was greatly anticipating last Saturday's
game versus UCF. Driving my UCF-at-
tending girlfriend to Gainesville, I told her
how great it is to watch the Gators in the
Swamp. The atmosphere can't be beat and
Ben Hill Griffin Stadium is the best place to
be on a Saturday night in Florida.
After buying two student tickets for
the "low" price of $40, my girlfriend and
I proceeded to our seats and sat down
- or rather, didn't sit down. According to
student-section tradition, all students must
stand for at least the first three quarters of
a game.
If your neighbor asks you to move aside
so he can rest his tired feet, simply respond
with a barrage of profanity. This is how
the best and brightest minds in the state
of Florida behave at a football game. We
should always remember that the best way


to display our intellectual gifts is to be as
selfish and rude as humanly possible. Go
Gators.

Appeals to blame for death penalty cost
Friday's opinion column "Capital pun-
ishment is costly, immoral," demonstrates
abominable use of both logic and ethics.
Todd Portnowitz argues that the death
penalty costs taxpayers millions each year.
But the cost stems from the endless appeals
a convicted criminal makes before he is con-
demned to die. Now, before any conclusions
are drawn, I am for a certain amount of ap-
peals to ensure that a convicted prisoner is
truly guilty. However, the excessive appeals
of those sentenced to death is what costs the
state so much. Frankly, endless appeals are
the problem, not the death penalty itself.
Portnowitz's column calls on us, as
"sane" voters, to step up and speak against
capital punishment. However, if you look
closely at his argument, you'll find that
following his ethics only enslaves decent
people to the whims of criminals.

people arriving at unattended
tow yards.
"Our company doesn't have
people here at all times after
hours," said 'Mike Weber, the
owner and operator of Superior
Towing in Gainesville. "We want
them to call ahead so somebody
will be there for them."
Between February and July,
there were 15 verified complaints
filed against tow companies
with roam towing contracts in
Gainesville, according to a city
document.
In July, the commission-
ers called for amendments to
Gainesville's trespass tow ordi-
nance, requiring companies and
drivers to register with the city
and for drivers to photograph
cars before they are hauled away.
These measures are designed
to cut down on operators who
wrongfully tow.
So far, said Scott, most compa-
nies have been willing to cooper-
ate.
"These [city] rules benefit
tow companies in the long run,"
Weber said. "When you do the
right thing, it does catch on."
Part of the safety commit-
tee's recommendation to ease
Gainesville's tow woes also in-
cludes publicizing parking infor-
mation for citizens, according to
the document.
"It's like driving down the
road," Weber said. "You need to
know the speed limit, the rules.
Parking is a privilege, not a
right."

He protested terrorists who he
said attacked him and put his cat
in a box on Aug. 19. The event,
he said, inspired him to run for
president.
The self-proclaimed "shaman
of the green people" elicited
confused stares as he waved an
American flag and asked for pagan
women to join with him in fleeing
the state.
"He wasn't invited," Richard
said.
Despite the commotion, the
groups that were invited drew
curious students who wanted- to


learn more.
A hibiscus plant, a fig tree and
a mulberry tree sat in pots on
the Edible Plant Project's table.
Project member Michael Adler, a
UF zoology alumnus, told curious
students about his group's efforts
to plant crops throughout the city
for consumption.
What sets the Radical Rush
apart from other rushes, Adler
said, is that people get a chance to
"make the world a better place."
Richard said the Radical Rush,
in comparison with Greek rushes,
has more meaning and less cer-
emony.
"We don't make people dress
up in evening dresses," Richard
said.
Szelena Gray, a UF religion
senior at the Feminist Activists

Radical Rush is more inclusive
than Greek rushes around cam-
pus.
And Kealan Partlow,-a mem-
ber of Gainesville's chapter of the

said the rush "is more focused on

In historic building, organic treats are served fresh


* BAKERY OFFERS ART, TEA
AND COFFEE WITH STYLE;

By CHRISTA WAGERS
Alligator Contributing Writer

A local bakery owner from
Hawaii brought the "aloha spirit"
with her to Gainesville.
"It's a word that encompasses
caring," said Laura High, co-own-
er of the 2nd Street Bakery.
High, 32, wants her bakery to
be a place for Gainesville residents
to gather.
"You might just be serving
them coffee, but you're a part of
their daily bread," High said.
The bakery, which opened in~
July, is nestled near the intersec-
tion of Northwest Second Street
and Northwest 16th Avenue near
Main Street.
Susan Granade, Joan Reisinger
and High, all owners of the bakery,
chose to open their business in a
historic building off the main road
because they wanted to interact
with the neighborhood,-High said.
Granade, 40, said the. bakery
is unique because it has a fresh
atmosphere unlike most commer-
cialized establishments.
"It's 'not just a stale environ-

including the coffee, which is also

Harvin honored for UCF game


* THE UF FRESHMAN HAD
99 RECEIVING YARDS.

By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Staff Writer
bjones@alligator.org

The word on freshman sensa-
tion Percy Harvin is spreading
quickly
After dazzling UF fans with
his playmaking ability, the
wide receiver .was named the
Southeastern Conference
Freshman of the Week on
Monday.
Harvin caught four passes
against Central Florida for a
team-leading 99 receiving yards.
He also rushed for 11 yards on
two carries.
In the first quarter, Harvin
caught a short pass from quarter-
back Chris Leak, turned upfield
and eluded several UCF defend-
ers en route to a 58-yard touch-
down the first of his collegiate
career. Another big play a 54-
yard run on an end around was
called back.
"He's dynamic and fast but
there's a lot of fast people out


there that aren't quite as com-
petitive," UF coach Urban Meyer
said. "There were a couple of
times during two-a-days where
we had to physically pull him out
of a huddle."
For the season, Harvin's 201
all-purpose yards trail only senior
wide receiver Dallas Baker for the
team lead (204).
He is also second to Baker
with 132 receiving yards, and his
69 rushing yards place him third
on the team. He is averaging 11.5
yards per carry.
Meyer said he plans to get the
ball in Harvin's hands even more
in upcoming games.
"The goal for players like that
.. is eight to 10 [touches]," Meyer
said.
"They're primo guys and we'd
like to get them to touch the ball
more."

UF TO PLAY KENTUCKY AT NIGHT:
ESPN has picked up the rights
to UF's home game against
Kentucky on Sept. 23. Usually
an afternoon game, the Gators
will instead play the Wildcats at
7:45 p.m.


CHANGING OF THE LEFT GUARD:
Freshman offensive lineman
Maurice Hurt took over for
starting left guard Jim Tartt in
the second quarter against UCF
The reason for the change was
two-fold, Meyer said.
He wanted to get Hurt some
valuable experience, but he also
didn't want to overwork Tartt,
who is recovering from a shoul-
der injury.
"We've been able to play those
young players, we just haven't
been giving them the environ-
ment," Meyer said. "Jim Tartt is a-
starter at left guard."

FICKLE AT NICKEL: While senior
Tremaine McCollum is the pri-
mary nickel corer this season,
junior safety Reggie Nelson has
been seeing some playing time
at the position.
Junior Kyle Jackson replaces
Nelson at free safety in those situ-
ations.
"Reggie is one of our premiere
players," Meyer said. "Kyle
Jackson is a guy with a lot of expe-
rience and he is actually playing
pretty well right now."

Harvin has big-play capabilities, but can he shine in prime,time?


Hope fans got a good look at Percy
Harvin during the first two games.
His big plays were the highlights
of thercombined 76-7 showcase.
On those knee-buckling runs and
catches; the freshman proved he could
live up to the hype against two teams
with directional names.
So watch the replays, tape them if you
want.
YRn won't be seeing them as of-
ten beginning this weekend against
Tennessee.
On Saturday, Harvin will not average
14.5 yards per carry like in week one
- or lead the team in receiving yards
- like in week two.
Fellow columnist Bryan Out Loud
might try to sway your opinion, but just
look at the facts.
He's going up against Tennessee, not
Southern Miss or Central Florida.
He's playing at Rocky Top, not the
Swamp.
Tennessee plays in the Southeastern
Conference, not Conference USA.
The Volunteers also hold the kryp-
tonite to slow down the super freshman
in the form of two tapes.
Game tapes from the Southern Miss
and UCF games will give Phillip Fulmer
and his staff an opportunity to dissect
Harvin's game.
They'll see the jukes and the touch-
down.


They'll also see
the lost fumble and
the broken route,
which led to the
only score allowed
Z a by UF this season.
NickZaccardi The Volunteers
Nick-el Coverage will know what
nzaccardi@alligator.org Harvin can do, and
they will do their
best to contain him.
Not stop him, but contain him.
Chris Leak will aid in Harvin's slow
descent back to Earth.
In his final game against Tennessee,
in front of his family, the senior will find
his experienced go-to guys.
Dallas Baker is UF's top receiver. He's
played at Neyland Stadium before and
can step up for big games.
Andre Caldwell is on his way back
from a broken leg. -Coach Urban Meyer
has called the junior "rusty," but an-
other week of preparation will only help
Caldwell shake that off.
Meyer has also said Jemalle Cornelius
needs more touches.
He's right.
In two games, Cornelius has four
catches for 103 yards.
In two games, Harvin has drawn
comparisons to Reggie Bush.
But not even Bush dominated his en-
tire season as a freshman.


xcuse my colleague for being so
oblivious.
Perhaps he has spent too much
time watching his beloved Tim Tebow
hold a clipboard on the sidelines to notice
what everyone else with two eyes has
witnessed these first two weeks of the
season.
Percy Harvin is more than ready for
Tennessee and the rest of the Southeastern
Conference big boys
Just ask Harvin.
"I'm real anxious," Harvin said.
"There's a lot of people that think a fresh-
man can't step it up on the big stage,
so I'm just anxious to prove everybody
wrong."
Every time he touches the ball, you just
can't help but sense that something big is
about to happen.
In his first two games, Harvin has car-
ried the ball six times for 69 yards an
average of 11.5 yards per carry. And don't
forget about his 54-yard run that was
called back against Central Florida.
That same game, Harvin ran a short
slant route and turned a small gain into a
58-yard touchdown catch.
Blink an eye and Harvin is sprinting by
you faster than Tennessee coach Phillip
Fulmer at an all-you-can-eat buffet.
But since Nick-el Coverage wasn't
able to grab Harvin in his fantasy col-
lege football league (good .luck with
Drew Weatherford), he has apparently


decided to become
a Harvin-hater.
Sure, Harvin has
dominated against
slower Conference-
USA defenses. But
Bryan Jones with a 4.3 second
Bryan Out Loud 40-yard dash, he'll
bjones@alligator.org still be the fastest
guy on the field
come Saturday, and
he will certainly be the quickest.
If the Gators are able to get Harvin the
ball in the open field, there is no game
plan that can prevent Volunteers defend-
ers from getting juked out of their ugly
orange cleats.
They could double team the freshman,
but the ensuing abuse Dallas Baker and
Jemalle Cornelius would inflict on the
Tennessee defense would be too extreme
for live television.
Urban Meyer said the biggest thing
he learned in his first season at UF is that
you have to have a few big plays to win
games in the SEC.
The solution, then, is simple.
Get the ball in Harvin's hands and
watch Fulmer sweat harder than Bruce
Pearl in a sauna.
Fail to get the ball in the hands of the
Gators' most elusive playmaker fresh-
man or not and the Tennessee march-
ing band may just set a new record for
playing "Rocky Top" during a game.

UF duo recalls UT ill-fates ;


* ANDRE CALDWELL AND RAY MC-
DONALD WERE INJURED LAST YEAR.

By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
nzaccardi@alligator.org

With apologies to "Anchorman's" Vince
Vaughn, on Saturday, redemption will be
spelled "UT."
When the Gators play Tennessee, wide re-
ceiver Andre Caldwell and defensive end Ray
McDonald hope to finish what they started
against the Volunteers last year.
Both went down with leg injuries in:the.
Gators' 16-7 win. Both haven't fully recovered
yet. Both haven't forgotten what happened.
After UF's 42-0 win against Central Florida
on Saturday, Caldwell and McDonald met.
They spoke as one.
"We were like, 'You know we've got to ball
this game, right? Because we got hurt last year.
We've got to step it up and make up for what
happened last year," McDonald said. "He was
like, 'Yeah, I know, I know.'"
There's more to that short confirmation.
"This is a big redeeming game for us because
we bothwent out with injuries," Caldwell said.
"We're going to bounce back."
Something taken for granted, a missed block,
allowed a Tennessee special teamer to slam into
Caldwell's right leg on a kickoff return.
"Watching him get carted off against
Tennessee really hurt because he got carted off
on kickoff return, a team I was a captain of,"
safety Tony Joiner said. "It really disturbed me
seeing that."
Caldwell rehabbed and made itback into the
starting lineup against Southern Miss. But he
didn't break out until the UCF game, when he
grabbed a 25-yard touchdown pass from Chris
Leak with four seconds left in the first half.
"When I saw him score that toucHdown


pass," UF coach Urban Meyer said, "that meant
he's back."
Two UCF defenders sandwiched Caldwell
on the play. The junior had to be helped off the
field by Leak.
"That was a big confidence booster just to
get one knock and get in the end zone," said
Caldwell, who finished the game with four
catches for 51 yards and two touchdowns. "The
hit knocked me out. I actually don't remember
making the catch."
McDonald's nightmare season started
against Tennessee last year, when he partially
tore his right ACL. He reappeared against LSU,
but couldn't stay healthy. McDonald would
partially tear his left ACL against Florida State
and miss the Outback Bowl.
"I'll never forget what happened.
.t's a tragic, injury, but that's foot-
ball. I'm just looking for sweet
payback."
Andre Caldwell
UF wide receiver

The Belle Glade native finished 2005 with
eight tackles, one sack and three surgeries.
"I really wasn't the same after I got hurt in
the Tennessee game last year," McDonald said.
"This game means a lot to me."
McDonald said he was rusty in UF's opener
but worked the kinks out for game two.
From what Meyer has seen, McDonald
hasn't turned loose yet.
"I still don't think you've seen Ray [at 100
percent]," Meyer said.
McDonald could have echoed Caldwell's
comments as the team started preparing for
Tennessee.
"I'll never forget what happened," Caldwell
said. "It's a tragic injury, but that's football. I'm
just looking for sweet payback."

Through its first 36 holes of the
season, the UF men's golf team shot a
606 (+38) at the Inverness Invitational
in Toledo, Ohio.
The Gators finished the two-round
day in a tie for fourth place with
Georgia and four strokes behind first-
place TCU.
Billy Horschel led the way for the
Gators with a seven-over and finished
in a five-way tie for fifth.
After struggling in the first round,
Horschel started his front nine in the
second round with consecutive birdies.
to put him at two over.
He then gave those strokes back
with a bogey and two double bogeys
as'he finished off at three-over for the
round.
Junior Manuel Villegas also played
well. He chipped in a 74 (+3) in the
first round and a 76 (+5) in the second
to finish the day in a 10th place tie at
eight-over.
Freshmen Tyson Alexander, Andres
Echavarria and Tim McKenney made
their first collegiate appearances.
Alexander fared best with a second-
round eagle and shot a combined 155
to finish in a tie for 33rd.
"With a lot of young guys out there,

UF teeming with playmakers as Vols loom ahead


* THE GATORS BOAST A
VETERAN OFFENSE.

By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer

The question has become nau-
seating.
Can Urban Meyer's vaunted
spread-option offense work in the
Southeastern Conference?
After UF's 2005 offensive
struggles, the simple answer might
have been that it can't. The truth,
however, might have been that the
Gators lacked the arsenal needed to
showcase Meyer's elements.
"Last year sometimes we had
one receiver," Meyer said. "And
when I talk about receivers, I mean
Division I-A, University of Florida,
Ike [Hilliard], Reidel [Anthony],
Jacquez [Green], Dallas Baker type.
players the type of players that
change games."
But with the emergence of seri-
ous playmakers across the board
early this season, Tennessee (UF's
opening SEC opponent) might have
to ask itself this question: Who are
we going to stop?
Between Baker, Jemalle
Cornelius, Cornelius Ingram and
freshman sensation Percy Harvin,
the Gators boast ample firepower.
Thfow in Jarred Fayson, Kenneth
Tookes, David Nelson and Riley
Cooper and the potential gets scary.
But apparently, that isn't enough
for Meyer.
He said he still wants three more


wide-outs.. He believes that distrib-
uting the ball among his playmakers
isn't an issue.
"I've been involved in game
plans where you look at each other
and ask, 'Well, who do we want to
touch the ball?'" Meyer said. "We're
not in that case now, especially
because we have unselfish players.
Not one player has come into my
office asking, 'Why am I not doing
this?' Last year that seemed to be a
problem, especially because giys
that weren't playmakers were say-
ing they wanted to get the ball. I
haven't had one issue of that this
year. They're starting to believe in
the team concept."
While the emergence of multiple
dependable targets has been funda-
mental in the development of the
Gators offensive system, it starts
with the quarterback.
Chris Leak continues to elevate
his play, as he has passed for 600
yards and seven touchdowns in the
season's first two games.
"You need your quarterback
involved," Meyer said.. "[Former
Bowling Green quarterback] Josh
Harris did that, [former Utah quar-
terback] Alex Smith did that and
Chris. Leak is going to do that. He
has the knowledge and the leader-
ship to do that."
Much of what Meyer wants to
do with the ball is predicated on the
quarterback's ability to make the
defense respect the run, leading to
the thinking that Leak isn't the best
choice at quarterback because of his
grooming as a pocket-passer.
However, that isn't the case, ac-

cording to Meyer.
S"Chris is not an option quarter-
back. That's fine we understand
that," Meyer said. "But he's effec-
tive with quarterback runs when he
does do it. That's significant because
it limits the looks you can see on


defense.'r
Leak's increased aptitude with
the playbook he scripts the first
12 plays of the game with the coach-
ing staff Thursdays along with
the threat of shovel passes, option
and reverse pitches to wide receiv-


ers has led to an early indication of
what UF's spread should look like.
The game is on.
Who do you want to stop?
"It's a lot of fun,' Cornelius said.
"That's the way it's supposed to
look at a D-I school."


Spread 'n' Shred no longer put to bed, Gators offense finally has cred


T he Gators have enough receivers to
populate a small country.
Need speed? Let me introduce
you to Percy Harvin, Andre Caldwell,
Jarred Fayson, Jemalle Cornelius and Riley
Cooper.
Need hands? Step right this way and
feast your eyes on Dallas Baker and
Cornelius Ingram.
The Gators (no matter how much Coach
Urban Meyer tries to deny the obvious) fi-
nally boast that go-to back.
DeShawn Wynn has put his Checkers
value meals on the backbumer, Meyer has
Wynn's doghouse up for auction on eBay
and the senior is ready to run the ball 20
times a game.

you, so I'll go ahead
and do the think-
ing for you: The
Spread 'n' Shred is
back. Resurrected.
Resusc iLt ated.
Revived. Retooled.
Ready to go. Can
you feel Phillip
Fulmer squirming?
"They have a


lot of offensive weapons," the Tennessee
coach said. "I think [they have as many as
anyone in this league]."
Fireworks are legal in Knoxville, and
good thing, too. Saturday, UF will un-
veil Meyer's most potent spread offense
to date. As shocking as it might sound,
Leak's polished precision and subsequent


potential make Alex Smith's production
at Utah seem about as exciting as a party
streamer.
And yes, former Utes' receivers Steve
Savoy and Paris Warren were nice, but
UF's receivers make Meyer's Utah wide-
outs look and sound like Black Cat duds.
Warm up the cannons, align the mortars
and prep the Molotov cocktails because
the only team capable of stopping UF's
attack is, well, UF (think inexperienced
offensive line).
Don't get me wrong Meyer's 2006
attack differs from his 2004 Utes.rampage.
The Gators will use a hybrid between the
true spread and a traditional NFL offense.
You will have reverses, end-arounds
(maybe Harvin and Fayson throw a pass or
two?) and a myriad of schemes to stretch


the field from sideline to sideline and end
zone to end zone. At the same time, you
will continue to see Billy Latsko at full
back and Tate Casey at tight end. And
Meyer will ensure Leak relies on his drop-
back passing strengths. It won't be until
2007 when UF's playbook is dominated by
Tim Tebow option runs and passes.
However, this reality will not translate
into inferior 2006 statistics or results. Like
Meyer says: The spread offense is whatev-
er your players do best. In this team's case,
that means you will see 50-yard bombs to
Cornelius and Caldwell instead of 40-yard
scampers by Leak.
Offense is offense no matter how you
get it. And with UF, you have enough
weapons to irk the Department of
Defense.
