Sharpton: Don't yield votes to 'boogeyman'
The Rev. Al Sharpton, a famed civil rights leader who ran for president in 2004, urges UF students to exercise
their voting rights in this fall's gubernatorial election and in the 2008 presidential election during a speech
at the Stephen C. O'Connell Center on Tuesday.
By ALEX TIEGEN
History will remember
the government's response to
Hurricane Katrina as the defin-
ing civil rights injustice of UF
students' generation, the Rev.
Al Sharpton told a crowd in the
Stephen C. O'Connell Center on
Sharpton, a civil rights activ-
ist and former presidential can-
didate, emphasized the need to
fight voter apathy to an audience
of about 4,000 people.
To make the democratic pro-
cess work in Florida, voters must
move past accusations of faulty
voting machines and miscounts
in past elections, Sharpton said.
Students who let disillusionment
stop them from voting will have
to explain their decision to their
grandchildren, he said.
"No one will be impressed
that you don't think the machines
were right," he said.
President George W. Bush
and his administration have
used threats of terrorism to scare
people into giving over their
votes, Sharpton said. The White
House's assertion that Iraq had
weapons of mass destruction was
also a scare tactic, he said.
"The right wing used the
boogeyman on the American
public," Sharpton said.
The need for civil rights lead-
ers is almost as urgent today
as it was in the past, he said.
Affirmative action is still neces-
sary to help dose the educational
gap between black and white stu-
dents, he said.
"The right wing used
the boogeyman on the
Rev. Al Sharpton,
civil rights activist
"People have the audacity to
talk about race 'back in the day,'
like there is something radically
different about it today," he said.
Sharpton created the National
Youth Movement, a group that
fights drug use and raises money
for inner-city youth, in 1971.
Twenty years later, he started
the National Action Network, an
activist organization to encour-

Facebook opens doors to all
* A ONCE ELITE COLLEGE NETWORKING
SITE WILL NO LONGER BE STUDENT-ONLY.
By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
The time is coming when your grandmother can
poke you on Facebook.com.
Facebook officials have told the media that soon
- they have not specified when the online social
network will be open to anyone in the world.
Letter from Facebook administrators on Tuesday's
home page read: "In the future, people will be able to
register for regions. But not yet."
Facebook confirmed the plans to allow users
with any e-mail address to join regional networks
on Monday. Restrictions will keep users from view-
ing profiles in other networks the same way a UF
student is restricted from the Florida State University
Facebook representatives were not available for
comment, but Forbes.com reported Tuesday that the
Web site planned to open its doors this week until the
outcry over the news feed postponed it.
Kimberly Lopez, a UF graduate student conduct-
ing research on Facebook and free speech, said stu-
dents might be reluctant to use their accounts because
the site is no longer exclusive.
"The fact that anyone can have an account is. re-
ally going to change the culture of
Facebook," she said.
According to The Harvard
Crimson,. Facebook was estab-
lished in February 2004 by Harvard
University sophomore Mark
Zuckerberg. He was dissatisfied
with Harvard's "facebook," a direc-
Zuckerberg tory distributed to freshmen.
Zuckerberg's Facebook ex-
panded from Harvard to universities and community
colleges throughout the country. It later allowed high
school students and companies to join.

Police find body
By DREW HARWELL
Under a shady oak tree in a field next to County Road 337,
police found a body.
Covered in blood and stab wounds, Kenneth Hollins' body
lay in a Newberry field for over 30 hours, police said.
Police charged Newberry resident Bobby
Public Helton with murder Monday, said Sgt. Keith
Slaftc Faulk, Alachua County Sheriff spokesman.
ey Hollins, a 21-year-old who went by "Slim,"
and Helton, 33, met late Saturday night at Helton's
mobile home in Newberry, Faulk said.
There was evidence, he said, that Helton was buying drugs
from Hollins. The transaction most likely became violent, and
then Hollins was killed, Faulk said.
Autopsy results haven't been released.
Faulk said the suspect may have driven Hollins in the vic-

Development forces residents to hunt for parking
By MICHELLE DeFILIPP
Alligator Contributing Writer
Parking congestion is an increasing
concern for students living just north of
With the near completion of
Nantucket Walk and Jackson Square, the
newest condominium complexes in the
area, parking problems for residents may
worsen, some city officials said.
The city encourages the redevelop-
ment of the College Park/University
Heights district just north of UF and of-
fers aid for developers in a Community
Redevelopment Agency program.
With the increased market for such ac-
commodations, UF student and area resi-
dent Mike Fenn said he believes parking
spots are becoming harder to find.
He said he drives around sometimes
for 15 minutes, trying to find a spot.
According to city code, developers
must supply at least one parking spot
for each multiple-family dwelling within
certain districts. However, often more
than one person lives in each unit.
Eric Wild, the chief executive officer of
F & G Land Co., the developer in charge
of the Jackson Square and St. Charles
condominiums, said residents have to
make an "unfortunate compromise"
between living in a nice area and dealing
with limited parking.
Jackson Square, which is still being
built, will have 53 units along with 53
parking spots, following the rules laid
out in the city code.
St. Charles, a 16-unit, two- and
three-bedroom condominium complex,
was completed in
Gainesville The complex's park-
ing garage features 16
spots one of which is for handicapped
drivers leaving many residents fight-
ing for parallel parking spots on the
"I think it's absolutely ridiculous,"
said Danielle Renne, a St. Charles resi-
dent. "They need to find a better way
to accommodate the students that live
in this area."
Gina Hawkins, public education
specialist for the city's Public Works
Department, said cars are unnecessary
to get places that are accessible by bike
or mass transit.
"There is certainly an American love
affair with their cars," Hawkins said.
She said the city has been very ag-
gressive in promoting mass transit and
alternative transportation as a means of
tackling parking overload.
There are more bike routes and an
expanded bus system, offering students
further methods of transportation, she
John Wachtel, neighborhood plan-
ning coordinator for the Gainesville
Community Development Committee,
said the city has spent time and money
devising a plan for developing the area.
Wachtel said the government is not
responsible for ensuring parking.
"Folks have to take a little bit of per-
sonal responsibility," when they chose to
live in a dense residential area, he said.
Sham Sundar, downtown proj-
ect coordinator for the Community
Redevelopment Agency, recognizes
parking is an issue. The agency is work-
ing with the city to create more available
The issue will appear on the agency's
"I feel that the CRA and the city work-
ing together on this unified parking man-
agement plan will be beneficial for the
community," Sundar said.
At volunteer fair, opportunities abound for UF students
* THE FAIR WILL CONTINUE TODAY
By LESLEY-ANNE MARKS
Alligator Contributing Writer
Students looking for volunteer work
had more than 50 options to choose from
Tuesday, when organizations ranging from
the Girl Scouts to a hospice converged for UF's
Volunteer Organization Fair.
The event was held on the Reitz Union
Colonnade and hosted by UF's Center for
Leadership and Service.
"I think this fair is important because most
of the time college students aren't aware of
the opportunities in Gainesville," said Annie
Kamlang-ek, the fair's director.

"We are glad to have a community
willing to help the homeless."

St. Francis House volunteer coordinator
was St. Francis House, a shelter that provides
meals and supplies to homeless people.
"We are in so much need of volunteers,"
said Kelly Ann Metts, the organization's vol-
unteer- coordinator. "We are glad to have a
community willing to help the homeless."
The event also provided opportunities for
career-minded students. Synthia Titley, a psy-
chology major, was interested in helping at the
Child Advocacy Center.

trate on for graduate school, and maybe this
could give me an idea," she said.

Gator Nation goes online
By CHAD SMITH
After students go start a Fortune 500 com-
pany, go write the great American novel and go
to Mars, UF has yet another mission lined up for
them go online.
GoGatorNation.com is the latest extension
of UF's Gator Nation marketing campaign. The
new Web site, which is due to launch Saturday,
will allow people to post videos and photos
about their experiences at UF.
The Web site will cost about $50,000, said Joe
Hice, UF's associate vice president for marketing
and public relations. That money will come from
food and drink sales on UF's campus.
The site will be an "interactive playground
for members of the Gator Nation," Hice said.
"It's really social networking
at its finest."
UF associate vice president for marketing
Visitors can upload their own "Go Gators"
videos to the Web site, and there will also be a
message board for alumni, students and Gator
fans to discuss the university.
"Its really social networking at its finest,"
Two multimedia companies 352 Media
Group and the UF Digital Worlds Institute are
collaborating on the project with the Fletcher
Martin marketing firm..
for 352 Media Group, said GoGatorNation.com
is "definitely a much more interactive site than
most sites out there."
The Atlanta Gator Club, a group of UF alum-
ni and supporters, made videos for the debut.
David Bressman, a veterinarian from Atlanta,
has already posted a video on site in which he
dons scrubs and tells viewers to "go heal an ani-
mal." Desiree Miller, of Roswell, Ga., stands on a
film set telling viewers to "go win an Emmy."
The site's official launch Saturday at 8 p.m.
is just in time for the football game against the
University of Tennessee. A commercial featuring
the Web site's address will air during the game.
Once the site launches, visitors can learn more
about campus activities and UF's contribution to
the world outside of Gainesville, Hice said.
Television and radio advertisements can't
fully convey UF's accomplishments, he added.
"You can't talk about the academic excellence
or the research in 30 seconds," he said.
The Web site will also feature "orange-and-
blue nuggets" tidbits of UF information
that will pop up within videos on the site. One
nugget could mention two UF alumni who are
astronauts, Hice said.
The Gator Nation marketing efforts have cost
UF about $800,000 to date, Hice said. The ad
campaign began in 2005 and is part of Machen's
goal to make UF a Top 10 university.
It's important for other schools to know about
UF's achievements if the university wants to be
ranked as a top public institution, Hice said.
"All this stuff will get people thinking about
the university and talking about the university,"

Professor dies abroad
By JOEY CHINDAMO
A UF medical professor who
gained fame for his work on child
abuse died this weekend in London.
Jay M. Whitworth worked as a
pediatrics professor at the UF College
of Medicine's Jacksonville campus,
but he began his medical career as a
nephrologist a doctor who diag-
noses and manages kidney disease.
Later, he shifted his career to focus on
"At that time, there was no text-
book or anything written on child
abuse," said Dr. Thomas Chiu, as-
sociate chairman of the department
of pediatrics in Jacksonville. "He got
interested in that and actually started
the first child-protection team for the
state of Florida."
Chiu said Whitworth was "one of
the premier faculty members in the
department of pediatrics" and had
worked there for at least 35 years.
"He was a real educator and
mentor," he said. "He trained a lot of
faculty and staff and rarely got upset.
Everybody liked him a lot, not only as
a teacher but as a personal friend."
Chiu traveled with Whitworth
to China several times to conduct
child-abuse presentations, and he
recalled driving two hours to show
Whitworth the Great Wall of China.
"He was the only person in the
group who hadn't seen it yet," Chiu
said. "He got out of the car, looked
at the brick wall
for two minutes
and said, Tve seen
enough, I'm ready
"He would sort of joke on it, but all
the kids loved it," Alexander said.
People around the world have
been calling UF to offer condolences
after Whitworth's death, he said.
"For me personally, it's a huge
loss," he said. "There are only a
few people in the country that have
had the experience and the depth of
knowledge, but it's really only hand-
fuls, and none of them are sitting next
door to me."

Students with alcohol in stadium risk expulsion
By JAMES RIGNEY
Michelle Rutherford said she
will never try to get alcohol into
the stadium during a game again.
Rutherford, 21, was one of two
students arrested and charged
with alcohol violations at the game
against the University of Central

ment, according to UF alcohol
"I basically had a momentary
lapse of judgment," she said.
Rutherford said she was ar-
rested by a University Police of-
ficer because she had a metal flask
of Jack Daniel's.
She said she was standing on
the bleachers in section 27 at the
end of the first quarter when an of-
ficer grabbed her arm and escorted
her out of the stadium.
Rutherford said she was "rat-
ted out" by a group of students a
few rows behind her.
"I got caught," she said. "I
know I messed up, but a lot of
people do it."
She said she was taken to a
"drunk tank" holding area where
she said she saw a few more arrest-
ed students, some visibly drunk.
"I thought I would go out and
enjoy Saturday night, but that
didn't happen," she said.
Rutherford said the arrest is the
only offense she has committed on
campus. She said she hopes she
gets community service hours and
doesn't lose her season tickets.

Swamp Party silent on
issues that matter
With just two weeks to go before the Fall Student
Government election, the Swamp Party has no
platform. But don't worry on Monday, it held
a workshop to come up with one. Swamp candidates and
concerned students pitched ideas to party leader Keith
Hardwick, who presumably wrote them down somewhere.
That's leadership, people.
Plenty of important stuff has happened at UF since Swamp
took over in Spring. But on most issues, SG's ruling party has
shown a downright pathological aversion to taking a stand.
Ask Student Body President John Boyles a question. Any
question. Nine times out of 10, he'll rattle off a list of subcom-
mittees and advisory boards, student workshops and blue-rib-
bon panels, all of which are "looking into the problem." But he
won't give you a straight answer.
If you asked him what time it was, Boyles would probably
commission a poll and get back to you later. That's no good.
In the next couple of months, UF will make some big deci-
sions monumental, earth-shattering decisions about the
nature of the university itself. But SG, the students' voice in the
corridors of power, is quiet as a church mouse.
Let's run down the list.
Where does Boyles stand on tuition hikes? Well, he's wait-
ing for the results of a student survey. He'll get back to you.
How about cutbacks in merit scholarships? He's looking into
it. Budget cuts in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences? He's
"hoping we'll come up with something a little different." Whoa
there, John! Let's keep it civil, please!
Of course, Swamp supports free printing. Gotta love that
When UF votes in this month's SG election on paper,
naturally students should ask themselves if a party with
no position on anything important deserves another chance.
Hopefully, Swamp will have a platform by then.

to be a Gator in 1993. UF

body wore flannel. Best of all,
there was no roam towing in

Unfortunately, in 1994, the
City Commission allowed
towing companies to prowl
the streets, hunting in packs
for illegally parked cars to
haul away. Weak members of
the herd the young and the
sickly were picked off one
by one and impounded.
We've lived in constant
fear of roam towing ever
On Monday, the City
to complaints against tow
companies by discussing
changes in towing rules.
If the changes go through,
tow trucks will still snatch
your car but they'll post
a phone number and a map
to the impound lot on roam
That should be helpful.
You'll know exactly where
to go in the middle of the
night and all you'll need is
a car to get there. But make
sure to call the tow company
before you pick up your ride.
The City Commission would
just hate it if you showed up
and there was no one around
to take your money.
Call us crazy, but it seems
our elected officials aren't
putting citizens first. In the
words of Mike Weber, a tow
company owner, "These
rules benefit tow companies
in the long run." Yeah, no

No matter how much I try, I can't seem -to un-
derstand the logic of cutting funding for the
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Not only is
CLAS the largest college on campus, but the budget cuts
are also completely unnecessary. Why? Because if UF
President Bernie Machen gets his way, UF will be making
an extra $200 million a year very soon.
In case you've forgotten, UF wants to raise tuition.
Supposedly, that extra cash will help UF move up
three more spots into the Top 10 on U.S. News & World
Report's yearly list. And it's here that the administra-
tion's logic fails.
Maybe it's just me, but $200 million seems like an aw-
ful lot of money. I'm willing to bet it could be used to pay
off the CLAS debt. So my next question is, why isn't that
the administration's plan of action?
Your guess is as good as mine.
What's the purpose of having all this extra money if
we're not going to spend it where it matters most? I'm
still against raising tuition, of course but if we have to
pay more, we might as well put the money to good use.
This brings me to my next point.
CLAS has a multimillion-dollar debt and, starting
very soon,UF will be making a huge surplus. Yet instead
of helping to pick up the slack, UF is encouraging CLAS
to reduce faculty.. Hmm.
Among other things, college ranking systems are
based upon a university's student-to-faculty ratio.
Cutting faculty increases that ratio and decreases our
overall score. Maybe I'm confused, but I thought we
were trying to increase our ranking, not decrease it.
Finally and more importantly this will ultimate-
ly be detrimental to the students. It seems the old adage
still stands: Shit always rolls downhill.
But CLAS isn't the only part
of UF that needs funding. In fact,
a there are a lot of places on campus
where the administration could
fi invest slices of that $200 million
Daniel Burroughs For example, the Institute of
Dan Demands Black Culture and La Casita could
firstname.lastname@example.org most certainly use better facilities.
I was in the IBC last Thursday for
poetry night and happened to
notice that, even in the biggest room, we were all packed
like sardines. Since La Casita's building is a duplicate,
I'm sure they run into the same problems.
Let's face it this school isn't exactly new. There's a
lot of refurbishing and renovation that needs to be done.
We can start with my hall, Jennings. Every time I go to
wash my laundry, the place is backed up because half of
the dryers are broken.
We can even add a few things. Why not get more wire-
less Internet service in the dorms? Even some landscap-
ing wouldn't hurt. Hell, increase Student Government's
budget so that they can do even more for the students.
These are the kinds of things that increase students'
overall satisfaction with their university which conse-
quently increases ratings. Therefore, these are the kinds
of things our higher-ups should concern themselves
There's a difference between being frugal and cheat-
ing ourselves out of having a great school. If we're going
to raise tuition, we shouldn't be cutting costs. CLAS de-
serves better and ultimately, so do we.

-- ",- to the -:- '-'
Americans will always mourn Sept. 11
I disagree with Monday's editorial, "5
years later." There will never be a last anniver-
sary of Sept. 11.
Every year, we celebrate Independence
Day, Memorial Day and Veterans Day. We
celebrate these days to remember allthe brave
men and women who gave their lives to pro-
tect our country's freedom.
No one will ever forget Sept. 11, the at-,
tack on Pearl Harbor or the Oklahoma City
bombing.To hide those days in history books
dishonors the Americans who died in victory
and in defeat.
CLAS plan cuts needed professors, TAs
As a graduate student in the English de-
partment, I am disgusted by Melvyn New's
letter in Tuesday's Alligator, which referred
to the College.of Liberal Arts and Sciences as
a stable in need of cleaning.
I also find it odd that New insists morale
is high while referring so disparagingly to his
This university would not function with-
out graduate students like me who, by the
way, are paid wages at or below the poverty
We are public servants who have dedi-
cated our lives to education. But according to
New, hardworking graduate students at UF
should be shoveled away with the rest of the
manure cleaned from the stable.
If this is high morale, I want no part of it.
Merit scholarship cutbacks will hurt UF
In Monday's article concerning National
Merit Scholarship cuts, UF President Bernie
Machen was quoted as saying that the cuts
"might deter some who are coming just for the
money." But I ask, what is wrong with coming
to UF because of a generous scholarship?
I came to UF as a National Merit finalist.
As a residential college adviser in the Hume
Honors College, I meet many other finalists
each year. For many of us, the money was a
major factor in our decision to attend UE But I
have never regretted the choice.
Unfortunately, by cutting National Merit
Scholarships, UF will lose talented students to
schools offering bigger scholarship packages.
Machen claims that UF "already boasts
thousands of qualified applicants who don't
need money to entice them." While this may
be true, does it follow the ideals of a public
university? Many National Merit finalists
couldn't afford to attend UF without their
I'm sure the administration had the best
interests of the university in mind when they
made their decision, but the entire situation
could have been handled much better.

age voter registration and fight poverty and
racism. Sharpton is also active in protesting
In 2004, Sharpton ran for president with
the Democratic Party but lost the party's
nomination to John Kerry. Sharpton said he
didn't know whether he would run again in
the 2008 presidential election.
If Republicans retain control of Congress
after this year's midterm elections, Sharpton
said he would likely run for president.
He also stressed the need to provide free
health care to all Americans and stop privatiz-
Sharpton's visit cost $24,000, Accent chair-
man Andrew Brown said. The Black Student
Union co-sponsored the event with Accent,

the midterm elections. Former White House

Facebook enters MySpace market
FACEBOOK, from page 1
Facebook groups to protest allowing high
schools. But the announcement of this latest
change has mobilized members to protest
The group, "Students against
FACEBOOK BEING PUBLIC" is one of a
slew of reactionary groups that cropped up
Tuesday. It had more than 2,300 members
Tuesday night. One group member posted a
message stating she was leaving Facebook.
Many students in anti-expansion groups
accuse Facebook of making the change in
order to rival MySpace.com
Expanding beyond students would
help Facebook close the yawn-
Student ing gap between its approxi-
mately 9 million members and
MySpace's 109 million users.
Economics senior Kristen Donini said
Facebook was always safer than MySpace.
"Random people from your class is one
thing, but I don't want 50-year-old men
messaging me," Donini said.
Police suspect drugs were involved

tim's silver 2000 Buick LeSabre a mile to

Helton returned to his mobile home
early Sunday. His wife, Carrie Helton,
found him that morning covered in
blood and unconscious from a drug
overdose. Faulk was unsure if the over-
dose was accidental or if Helton had
Helton was rushed to North Florida
Regional Medical Center, where his
wife and his father, Ricky Helton,
stayed with him.
Lying in his bed in Room 22, Helton
told his wife, "I've messed up every-
thing," according to a police report.
Helton's wife asked him where-he'd
gotten the drugs. She asked who Slim
was. Helton stopped talking. He began
Helton then told his father and his
wife that there was a dead body in a
field at 27000 SW 30th Ave., the report
states. His father told his friend and bai-
liff Greg Smith, Faulk said, and the two
went to the scene.
They found Hollins' body lying on
the grass next to his car. It had been out-
side for more than a day, Faulk said.
A police report described the scene
as gruesome. Collins had been stabbed
and beaten repeatedly, Faulk said.
"It was not a pretty picture."
Sgt. Keith Faulk
Alachua County Sheriff spokesman
Blood was found in both Hollins'
and Helton's cars, he said. Police also
found a bloody handprint on the wall of
Helton's home, according to the report.
"It was not a pretty picture," Faulk
After they found the body, police
went to the hospital and detained
Helton. After Helton is medically
cleared, he will be sent to jail, where he
will be held until the grand jury in his
case convenes, Faulk said.

Meyer refused to reveal mind games
Meyer OK with RBs
By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
For the first time in a long time,
Coach Urban Meyer is not terrified
by his prospects at running back.
"I feel good about [DeShawn
Wynn] and Kestahn [Moore] and
I have not said that around here
very often," Meyer said. "[Wynn's]
running harder than he has."
In two games, Wynn has aver-
aged six yards per carry.
However, he has only rushed
the ball a combined 16 times.
Meyer continues to refrainfrom
naming Wynn his go-to back. ,
"I hope he's that kind of back,
but I can't answer that question
for you right now," Meyer said.
"I'll answer that Monday. But he
should be healthy and ready to
Meyer has reiterated that Wynn
has a difficult time accepting posi-
tive reinforcement, meaning that
the back tends to relax during
practice if complimented.
PUNTER HONORED: UF punter Eric
Wilbur has been named to the Ray

The annual award is given to the
nation's premier punter.

fuel so as to not aid the economy of the state of
the Buckeyes' biggest rival.
Also during his first press conference, Meyer
harped about not referring to teams like FSU by
name. While at Bowling Green, the coach called
Toledo "the team up north." At Utah, Brigham
Young was "the team down south."
When asked Monday if he has used mind
games to play up UF's rivals, Meyer responded:
"If I was, do you think I would tell you in front
Meyer appeared hesitant to divulge informa-
tion on any current tactics because he has yet to
win any championships at UF.
"If stuff gets out, that's just more sparks that
get out," Meyer said Monday. "We do a lot of
stuff. I'm just glad you're not aware of it.
"This is a big game. We'll take care of the

got us a little bit."
But strong play from
McGinnis and juniors out-
side hitter Marcie Hampton
and opposite hitter Amber
McCray bolstered UF down
the stretch as the Gators won
games three and four 30-24.
McGinnis broke the record
for career kills by a UF setter
during the second game and
added two more to finish with
seven. She now has 156 career
"Not one person is going
to make up for all of [former
Gators kills, so we're go-
ir~bal ing to have to get
else," Wise said.
"Angie has to get the kill. She
has to be offensive."
Hampton and McCray
were driving forces for the
Gators. Hampton led the team
with 16 kills. McCray fol-
lowed with 15, and both com-
bined for only five errors.
Freshman libero Elyse
Cusack was all over the court,
picking up 22 digs.
"She makes these plays
look easy," Wise said.
"Anyone who knows volley-
ball knows that's not true."
UF's win is its 15th con-
secutive against the Seminoles
and its 37th consecutive
against teams from Florida.

V ROAD GAM ES, frompage 19
The 1995 squad represented the next step in the continuing evolution of the Gators under Coach Steve
UF put up 538 points that year, finishing the regular season a perfect 12-0, capped off by a 34-3 shellacking of
Arkansas in the Southeastern Conference title game, the Gators' third straight conference crown.
No other team in school history has gone through the regular season unbeaten. Five of those victories came
against ranked opponents, including three top-10 teams.
Ranked No. 2 in the country, the Gators squared off with No. 1 Nebraska in the Fiesta Bowl, only to be blown off
the field 62-24 by a Cornhuskers' squad regarded as one of the best teams of all time.
The highlightof the season came in an early season win against rival Tennessee.
The Gators fell behind 30-14 in the first half, only to rip off 48 straight points in a 62-37
UF also topped Florida State 35-24, just UF's second victory againstthe Seminoles in
Danny Wuerffel was named SEC Player of the Year and a first-team All-American in addition
to winning the Davey O'Brien Award as the nation's top quarterback after throwing for 3,266
yards and 35 touchdowns.
His passing efficiency rating of 178.4 set a national single-season record, and he finished
third in voting for the Heisman Trophy.
Wide receiver and Gainesville native Chris Doering hauled in 70 passes that season, 17 of
them for touchdowns, the second-most receiving touchdowns in a season in school history. Wuerffel

Meanwhile, the coaches have relied upon the seniors to ed-
ucate the younger players about SEC road-game atmosphere.
Meyer is not naive enough to expect this will eliminate all
problems, but he believes it can help.
"There's no chance the young players will have any concept
- unless we beat it into them what they're stepping into,"
Meyer said. "It's very important that our seniors get that point
across. You need enthusiasm and seriousness for a game like
Just what,do the freshmen need to be pre-
"They throw objects [on you in Knoxville]
- beer, water or whatever they got," freshman
receiver Percy Harvin said.
Most importantly, there is the road game itself. In 2005, the
Gators never possessed an away-from-home killer instinct. So
not only did the Gators field a porous defense and offense that
struggled to score and protect the ball, but once UF fell behind,
it never recovered.
"We need to bring our own intensity," defensive tackle
Marcus Thomas said. "We need to bring the Swamp to wher-
ever we play. And then if something goes wrong, we can't get
down and let it keep happening.
"We have to be able to fight back."

UF was anemic away from
the Swamp during Meyer's first
season. The Gators finished 1-3
on the road in 2005. And if you
throw out the Kentucky game,
UF was outscored a combined
82 to 42.
Each loss proved equally trag-
ic for the Gators. The Alabama
thrashing resulted in key injuries
to quarterback Chris Leak and
wide receiver Jemalle Cornelius.
The LSU heartbreaker forced
Meyer to retool his spread of-
fense by adding a full back and
tight end. And UF's final road
opponent South Carolina
booted the Gators out of
Southeastern Conference title
"I think the question mark at
the University of Florida is: How
tough are we? We'll find out,"
"Tough football teams find
ways to win on the road, and we
were not a tough football team
last year. We are a talented bunch
of good guys who, if we got up
on you, watch out."
Meyer scoured the nation for
a road-game panacea during the
off-season. He consulted with
proven NFL teams the New
England Patriots included. He
invited legendary former coach
Lou Holtz to address UF's coach-
ing staff about road games. And
Meyer had former UF linebacker
James Bates (a member of the
1996 national title team) speak to
his players about the quandary.
"They showed a [road-game]
highlight tape and he got~ rock-
ing up in here," center Steve
Rissler said. "It was a good time,
and [Bates said]: 'This is why you
come to Florida, to play in games

Nearly nine months after suffering a
devastating ankle injury, the junior out-

night in the second game of UF's 3-1 vic-

"As of yesterday afternoon, the word
we got was that she might be able to play

'Kari, what's the difference between this

She started the third game and played a

Meyer quietly ignites rivalry
* PLAYERS SAY MEYER HAS PUT UP TEN-
NESSEE LOGOS IN THE LOCKER ROOM.
By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
The secret's out.
Out in UF's weight room, hallways and bath-
roorni where Tennessee logos are posted or have
been in the past.
Out once again in the weight room, where
a clock has been counting down the seconds to ev-
ery Southeastern Conference game kickoff since
Coach Urban Meyer's arrival.
Out at the football practice facility, where
Meyer blared "Rocky Top" (Tennessee's fight
song) ad nauseam during Tuesday's practice.
With a tide-turning game against Tennessee on
tap for Saturday, would you expect anything else?
Would you expect Meyer, who has a degree in psy-
chology from Cincinnati, to act any differently?
"They'll put little Tennessee.Volunteer pictures
up in the weight room, bathroom and stuff like
that," defensive end Ray McDonald said. "It's a.
little extra motivation. I'm like, 'Why are there pic-
tures of Tennessee up in here?' It gets you a little
mad seeing those things up in the locker room."
With SEC supremacy on the line, Meyer and
the Gators can hardly-afford a loss in Knoxville.
The loser of Saturday's game faces an uphill battle
to regain footing in the Eastern Division. So, as
players say, Meyer has taken nothing for granted.
They have confirmed rumors that the
coach used motivational ploys at Utah and
Bowling Green and continues to do the same in
"I don't know what team wouldn't do some-
thing different for a rivalry," said UF corner
Ryan Smith, who played under Meyer's 2004
Utah team. "It comes with college football. When
there's a rivalry game, there's going to be some
things that are different from the average game."
Defensive tackle Marcus Thomas said Meyer's
rivalry mind games were more important in 2005,
when some players struggled buying into his
"Plan to Win."
"He used to do it a lot last season," Thomas
said. "At the beginning of last season, he did that
a lot, but now he doesn't need to give us bulletin-
board material anymore."
"They'll put little Tennessee Volunteer \
pictures up in the weight room, bath-
room and stuff like that."

Yet Thomas and McDonald admit Meyer still
spruces up the rivalries. And why not?
Last season, the Gators swept rivals Tennessee,
Georgia and Florida State for the first time since
1996. And just look at Meyer's rivalry credentials.
Meyer won three of his four rivalry games while
at Bowling Green (its rival is Toledo) and Utah (its
rival is Brigham Young).
"It's probably well-documented that we like to
Dec. 7, 2004 during his opening UF press confer-
ence. "I'm not going to create that here. That's here ,
already, but there will be certain things we do to
try to egg on that rivalry a little bit."
A native of Ashtabula, Ohio, Meyer looked. .

during his early coaching years. Story has it that Tim Casey. Alligator SatH
