UF economic clout to aid East Gainesville


By CHAD SMITH
Alligator Writer

Over bacon and eggs Wednesday morning,
UF President Bernie Machen discussed his
goals to expand UF's East Gainesville campus
and improve the area's economy.
Machen spoke to about 30 local leaders
as part of the Community Campus Council
Breakfast Series, which aims to bring
Gainesville and UF leaders together. The
president stressed the importance of UF's
century-long, "symbiotic" relationship with
Gainesville.
Without UF, Machen said, Gainesville
would "be a lot like Lake City," the site of UF's


original campus.
He told leaders at the Reitz Union's
Arredondo Room that Gainesville and UF
have a long way to go toward improving the
university and its community.
"When I moved here, I felt a Southern
city, and that means a racially divided city,"
he said.
Bringing money and better jobs to the East
Gainesville area is essential, Machen said. He
plans to expand UF's East Gainesville campus,
which is located on Waldo Road, and bring
biotechnology research centers to the area.
SNeither the city nor Alachua County has
given UF money to help, he said.
But Jeanna Mastrodicasa, a city commis-


sioner who attended Machen's speech, said a
plan is in the works to bring a biotechnology
center to downtown Gainesville within the
S next decade.
Machen also addressed
the lack of economic
diversity among UF stu-
dents. About 50 percent of
students come from house-
holds that earn at least
$100,000 a year, he said.
This semester, 434
Machen students are attending
UF with the help of the Florida Opportunity
Scholars program, which pays for students'
tuition, books and living costs, he said.


These students come from "working-poor"
families whose incomes are less than $40,000
per year, he said. Although the students can't
afford the costs of college, their families earn
too much to qualify for federal aid.
.Machen also emphasized the.importance
of UF's sustainability program, which devel-
ops environmentally friendly ways to limit
resource use. One of the program's goals is to
eliminate most on-campus waste by 2015.
"We have a huge trash problem by virtue of
our size," Machen said.
Expanding alternative energy is also
important to the program's success, and UF
needs to be a leader in alternative energy at
the local, state and national levels, he said.

Andrew Vogeney is throwing
a party this weekend, complete
"with two kegs, music and tons
of drunkenness," according to his
Facebook.com event invitation.
Officers with the Gainesville
Police may already know about
Vogeney's "Tennessee Trash
Bash" event because they have
access to the popular social net-
working site.
Gainesville Police has been
using sites like Facebook and
MySpace.com to locate parties
and sometimes check on them,
according to a memo from police
Capt. Ed Book to Chief Norman
Botsford.
Book wrote that he gave ap-
proval for a community resource
officer to "scour" sites like
Facebook and MySpace, time
permitting, for dingerous-look-
ing parties.
Police have access to UF's
Facebook network because some
students or graduates who work
for the department have ac-
counts, said Sgt. Keith Kameg,


GPD spokesman.
The memo also outlines some
of the information police seek
after they have found an "open
house" party, like finding the host
and possibly levying charges.
Vogeney's invitation could
help police identify him as host,
but he said he is not worried
about police crashing his party.
"It's up to me to regulate
what I put up there."
Carmengloria Vargas
UF student

The memo from Book was
written 12 days after Lucas
E. Young, 24, was killed at 'a
Gainesville party in July It was
sent in response to a letter of
concern from City Commissioner
Jack Donovan.
Carmengloria Vargas, a UF
student who was throwing a
birthday party Friday for her
friend, Danielle, removed the
party's open invitation from
Facebook after she learned police
had access to the announcement,
which contained her address and
phone number.
"I guess part of it is my own
fault," Vargas said. "It's up to me
to regulate what I put up there."

SG ELECTIONS

Action Party's budget cuts cater to student appeal


Editor's note: This is the first
in a series examining politi-
cal parties competing in Fall's
Student Government election.
By JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Writer
jdasilva@alligator.org

Student Government's Action
Party has big plans to save stu-
dents money but while the
group's platform promises luxu-
ries such as free printing, it does
not address larger issues, includ-
ing tuition hikes.
The party has not taken a stance
on raising tuition which UF ad-
ministrators favor because it
cannot expect to "responsibly and
reasonably" solve the problems,
said party leader Tommy Jardon.
Instead, the platform prom-
ises a waterslide at Lake Wauburg
and free bus rides to the annual
Florida-Georgia football game.
Armed with those prom-
ises and a "student bill of rights,"
Action officials say they want to
hold SG accountable and ensure
students see the benefits of their
tuition money.
"On some concept, we're sort
of kids in a candy shop," said
Josh Kaller, who is running for a
Student Senate seat with the party.
"We're striving to appeal to what
we feel students want."
In order to make Action's
promises a reality, Jardon said


money could be taken from other
expenses such as SG advertising
- which would add up to a little
more than $104,000.
That cash could cover the buses
and the waterslide, but the price
of free printing in all of UF's com-
puter labs soars far above Action's
proposed budget.
Students are allotted a 250-page
limit at the SG printing lab on the
Reitz Union's third floor. At 10
cents a page, each student is desig-
nated $25 worth
of printing.
Sen. Ryan
Nelson, who
is running for
re-election
with the Action
Party, said the
organization
Nelson plans to shut
down the SG computer lab in or-
der to save $30,000. Additionally,
his party wants to reduce students'
free printing limit to 100 pages,
which would cost nearly $500,000
if everyone met the quota.
But the printing plan still
exceeds the Action budget by
$400,000.
SG now budgets $12500 for
free printing in the SG lab. Making
printing available anywhere on
campus would likely cost hun-
dreds of thousands more because
more students would print.
Nelson said that because there
is no available data about how


many students print from UF labs,
Action is assuming not all students
will use their 100 pages.
"We're not afraid of taking the
risk if we feel that that is what the
majority of students want," Nelson
said.
Student Body President John
Boyles, who won his seat with the
Swamp Party, said he wonders
how Action will implement its
ideas.
"It's great to advocate on behalf
of the students, but where's the
research?" Boyles said.
Josh Weiss, a senator running
for re-election with Swamp, said
he doesn't see the "feasibility and
implementation" of Action's goals.
"I think it really attests to the
focus of their party," Weiss said.
"It might take longer to achieve
big-picture goals, but I'd rather
run with Swamp than with a list of
promises that I may or may not be
able to keep."
Jardon said Action also created
a "student bill of rights" to hold SG
accountable to students. The docu-
ment includes student rights such
as "equal access" and "privacy"
- issues that Swamp officials say
may be difficult for SG to tackle.
Pants Party vice presidential
candidate Bruce Haupt expressed
a similar opinion.
"I think they're making a lot
out of what isn't necessarily an
issue," he said. "But they have a
great heart."

Football


contract


renewed


with Jax

By ANDREW SWENSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

The annual brawl between
the Florida Gators and the
Georgia Bulldogs will remain
in Jacksonville for the next four
years.
UF, the University of Georgia
and the city of Jacksonville have
signed, a contract that covers
2007 through 2010, said UF se-
nior associate athletic director
Greg McGarity. In an effort to
keep the game in town, the city
of Jacksonville has waived the
$75,000 annual fee that UF has
had to pay to rent Alltel Stadium.
"This game is one of the great-
est traditions in college football,"
McGarity said. "It would be a
shame if it were to be changed to
a regular home-away series."
McGarity, an alumnus and for-
mer employee of UGA, said some
Georgia students would rather it
be an alternating series due to the
342-mile drive and the Bulldogs'
recent troubles with
State the Gators. But,. he
News said, most fans en-
joy the annual trip
to Jacksonville and
would not have it any other way.
The annual rivalry has been set
in Jacksonville every year since
1933, except for 1994 and 1995,
during the construction of the cur-
rent stadium. The raucous game-
day party at the Jacksonville
Landing, the city's entertainment
district, has earned the title,"The
World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail
Party."
Both universities have been
working to lose the nickname for
the last 10 years. National focus
on the festivities has increased
following the deaths of two UF
students in the last two years.
Jacksonville officials should
change three aspects of the-event
if they want to continue hosting
the game, McGarity said. There
needs to be more local police
officers to curb fighting and
underage drinking. Limits must
be set on the number of people
admitted. And the music played,
which encourages "moshing and
violence," should be changed.
UF senior Matt Coan said he
would hate to see the game leave
its host city.
"I don't care what they call
it as long as they keep it in
Jacksonville," he said. "I've gone
the past two years, and as long as
I keep having a good time and we
keep beating those Dawgs, I'll go
until the day that I die."

Paid trainers hit gym


By ANDREW SWENSON
Alligator Contributing Writer
In a few weeks, UF students will
be able to hire on-campus personal
trainers to get them in shape if
they're willing to pay at least $15 an
hour.
The university's Department of
Recreational Sports will offer per-
sonal trainers to students, faculty and
staff beginning Oct. 2.
But unlike the fitness training al-
ready offered by UF, the new services
will allow gym patrons to schedule
more in-depth sessions with trainers.
The services will be available at
both the Southwest Recreation Center
and the Student Recreation and
Fitness Center.
Nancy Chrystal-Green, associ-
ate director of the Department of
Recreational Sports, said the two free
training sessions currently offered to
gym patrons are not enough for some
people.
In addition to more training ses-
sions, the new system will allow
people to select trainers based on
their individual areas of interest,
Chrystal-Green said;
The personal trainers will cost
.between $15 and $21 an hour, said
Nickolas Clayton, assistant director
of fitness. Three sessions should cost


about $21 an hour, he said, while
people buying 12 or more sessions
will pay $15 an hour.
The department's board of direc-
tors, which includes student mem-
bers, has been discussing the personal
training option for a long time. The
board agreed it was difficult to meet
the needs of all gym patrons with just
two free sessions.
"It is not our intention to
make any money off of the
students whatsoever."
Nancy Chrystal-Green
Department of Recreational Sports
associate director

The department could not afford
to hire enough trainers to cover ev-
eryone.
"It is not our intention to make
any money off of the students what-
soever," Chrystal-Green said.
The training service will begin
with a personal fitness assessment
conducted at the Student Recreation
and Fitness Center, she said.
The assessment will include a
body fat composition test, which is
intended to give personal trainers an
idea of how to help people achieve
their specific fitness goals.

City Commission ignores

parking congestion
Here in Gainesville, parking is a lot like UF President
Bernie Machen's hair every year, there seems to
be less and less of it. Unfortunately, neither trend will
turn itself around any time soon.
So who's to blame, you ask? Machen's mother, most ge-
neticists say. As far as parking goes, look no further than the
Gainesville City Commission.
It works like this. The commissioners decide how many
parking spaces developers must provide at local condomini-
ums and apartment complexes. Then the developers, being
developers, provide the bare minimum. Still with us?
Right now, developers must supply one parking space for
every unit in a given building. Ten units, 10 parking spaces.
Thirty units, 30 parking spaces. Pretty simple, right? But
here's the problem: A two- or three-bedroom apartment still
counts as one unit. In some buildings, fewer than half of all
tenants have a place to park.
Of course, the Commission could solve that problem
with the stroke of a pen. But no. Instead, the zoning board
approves new building projects, knowing full well that new
apartments and condos will worsen parking congestion
around campus.
But hey, city officials say it's not so bad. You can always
take a bus or ride your bike to class. But as all UF students
know, the Regional Transit System is notoriously unreliable
and cyclists in Gainesville have a disturbing tendency to get
run over. So scratch that. Students need cars, and they need
a place to park them.
For many, that place is on the front lawn. It's not pretty,
but it works. But on Monday, the Commission voted unani-
mously to allow neighborhoods around campus to adopt
stricter parking rules meaning no parking on the grass
after all.
With Gainesville's population on the upswing, the city
owes it to its residents to alleviate the parking crisis. Sadly, it
seems the City Commission has other priorities.



New Facebook fight


A attention, students!
There's a lot more
to the world than
just Facebook.com. You guys
know that, right? Okay, just
checking.
Why do we ask?
On Monday, Facebook
announced that anyone with
a valid e-mail address not
just college kids will even-
tually be able to join the on-
line social network. Sacrilege!
Luckily, students from sea to
shining sea formed Facebook
groups immediately to pro-
test the decision.
If you're keeping score at
home, it was the second time
in two weeks that Facebook
inspired our generation to
mobilize, organize and make
itself heard. As a matter of
fact, it was the second time


anything inspired our gen-
eration to mobilize, organize
and make itself heard.
Here at the Alligator, we
can't figure it out.
Why does the Facebook
get you so worked up? After
all, there are bigger, scarier,
more important things going
on out there. Ever heard of a
place called Iraq? People our
age are dying over there, you
know. Lots of them. Here at
UF, the administration is try-
ing to jack up your tuition.
For God's sake, people,
Justin Timberlake is bringing
sexy back! But all you seem
to care about is Facebook,
Facebook, Facebook. Well,
fine. Just don't come crying
to us when the National
Security Agency starts read-
ing your profile.

Letters to the i;::-i:'
Accent choices unfair to Democrats
Does anyone really believe a lightweight
like the Rev. Al Sharpton can balance out a
political heavyweight like former Bush Chief
of Staff Andrew Card?
Does anyone believe you achieve balance
by scheduling Sharpton, the weaker speaker,
a month and a half before the election, while
letting Card speak right before the polls
open? Card is loyal to his party. Sharpton, on
the other hand, ran his last campaign with the
help of Roger Stone, a Republican operative.
Accent's decision to book Sharpton seems
biased.

Alcohol course worth students' time
Last Thursday's editorial about UF's new
online alcohol course was off the mark. The
gist of it was that the course is useless that
it won't keep students from drinking. But the
point is not to make people stop drinking and
cloister themselves in libraries, as the editorial
sarcastically suggested, but to get people to
drink more responsibly.
The editorial did not report the variety of
information the alcohol course has to offer. It
doesn't just use a lot of scientific terms and
yammer on about how alcohol is bad. It also


addresses issues such as the high correlation
between alcohol and sexual assault, sexual
transmitted diseases and lower grade point
averages.
As mentioned in the editorial, at least five
UF students have died over the past couple of
years due to alcohol-related causes. I disagree
that mandatory alcohol education will accom-
plish nothing. The Alligator was right to say
that the new online course shouldn't be the
only strategy for encouraging more respon-
sible drinking but if it prevents even one
alcohol-related death at UF, then I believe it is
worth 45 minutes of students' time.

UF needs CLAS to meet Top 10 goals
UF and the College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences cannot afford to lose graduate stu-
dents through indecision and cutbacks.
According to CLAS Dean Neil Sullivan, en-
rollment at UF grew by about 5 percent overall
between 2002 and 2005, but CLAS enroll-
ment increased at more than twice that rate.
Consequently, teaching loads exceeded what
the college could handle, placing it in a hiring
mode even as debts accumulated. CLAS was
forced to spend in order to meet the demands
of incoming students.


Despite these facts, UF President Bernie
Machen insists that CLAS budget issues
have nothing to do with his plans to place UF
among the nation's top universities. But the
administration cannot hope to meet its goals
without CLAS. Leaving the college under-
funded negatively affects the value of every
degree granted at UF.

Thanks for covering Atlantis mission
I was ecstatic when I read Tuesday's story
on space shuttle Atlantis and the activities
of its crew. I grew up 15 minutes away from
Kennedy Space Center and have spent the
past two summers working there.
Though Gainesville is somewhat removed
from space-related business, the advance-
ments being made by NASA are impressive
and relevant to a worldwide audience. Thank
you for including the story about Atlantis and
its crew and for putting the spotlight on a
group of heroes not recognized often enough
for their brave contributions.

U .


English needs more faculty, not less
I am not sure what is more baffling pro-
fessor Melvyn New's continued attacks on his
own department, or the Alligator's continued
insistence on printing them.
In his letter in Tuesday's Alligator, New
called the English department a "very weak
department." But as he knows, a panel of
highly qualified external reviewers evaluated
the department last Spring and declared it
"exceptionally strong." They recommended
a minimum increase of five to seven faculty
members and a nearly 50 percent increase in
graduate student pay.
The five-year plan that is so heartening to
New's morale, on the other hand, proposes
the exact opposite. For professor New to lend
his voice in support to this plan, given that it is
founded on premises he knows to be false, is
both irresponsible and unethical.

FACEBOOK, from page 1

Kameg said the department's
use of Facebook to get tips on par-
ties shows how easy it is to access
students' personal information.
"It's not the hardest thing to get
into," Kameg said.
According to Book's memo, most
parties that Gainesville Police finds
out about in advance don't come
from Internet searches. Instead, of-
ficers get most of their party where-
abouts from word of mouth, local
newspapers, fliers posted in bars or
even writing on the 34th Street Wall.
Even. though the police depart-
ment wants to eliminate unsafe par-
tying, it doesn't want to kill parties
altogether, Kameg said.
"Bad things happen at good par-
ties," he said.
This is why GPD sometimes
notifies its Party Patrol when it uses
the Internet to discover a potentially
dangerous party, Kameg said.
While he said officers wouldn't
go "knocking on doors" if they


found out a party would be at a
certain address, they might increase
patrols in that area.
According to another memo,
Botsford said Web surfing for par-
ties was "less than effective" at curb-
ing dangerous practices because the
party notice could simply move to a
different Web site.
"It's like looking for a needle in a
haystack," Kameg said.
Public Using Facebook as
Safety an intelligence tool is
not just for the police.
UF's Division of
Student Affairs launched a Web
page in March to warn students of
the dangers of posting damaging
information on sites like MySpace
and Facebook.
According to the site, school of-
ficials or even potential employers
may use social sites to screen job
applicants.
"If you would not want the
photo on the front page of a local
newspaper," the site warns, "you
probably shouldn't have it on
Facebook.com."

Will Hoge is tired of being compared to Bruce
Springsteen.
Don't get him wrong: He is very flattered to be
mentioned in the same breath as Springsteen, but
he doesn't see the similarities the way most people
who write about him do.
It could be his rough, soulful voice. It could be
his working-class lyrics. Or, it could be his penchant
for scruffy beards, Fender Telecasters and mechan-
ics' shirts rolled up at the arms. Whatever the rea-
son, it's hard to think about Hoge without thinking
about The Boss.
"I don't really think about it that much," said
Hoge. "I don't necessarily understand the com-
parison, but it is flattering in the perspective that I
would love to have a career as successful and span-
ning the length of time as (Springsteen's)."
Comparatively, Hoge's career is just starting off.
Hoge released his first album, "Carousel," himself
in 2001. His second album, "Blackbird On A Lonely
Wire," was released under Atlantic Records in 2003,
but many critics felt the-restrictions of a major label
kept Hoge down. Hoge's latest long-player, "The
Man Who Killed Love," self-released July 2006,
finds him on top of his game and doing his own
thing.
"The big thing for us is we've always tried to
capture our live feel with the records," said Hoge.
"The first record, we got pretty dose, the second one
we got kind of away from that, but this is the clos-
est we've gotten to really capturing that for a whole
record and not just for a song or two."
Being onstage in front of an audience is where
Hoge and his band are most comfortable.
"That's where we make our living. That's the
reason we all do this," said Hoge. "It's a lot of work
and a lot of effort and a lot of travel, but all the
people you play to every night is the reason that
you do it."
And as those professionjokes go, Will Hoge does
it all year long. Hoge estimates that he plays 250 to
300 shows a year. His current tour, which comes to
Common Grounds tonight, is packed all the way
through December. With so many shows, some
might find touring the height of tedium.
"If you come out to a show the same way every
night, it gets boring real fast," said Hoge. "Then the
road starts to become not fun, so we try to push
ourselves to mix up the comfort level and try new

Grounds with Colourslide.

things, playing new songs and playing new ar-
rangements of old songs."
Being on the road itself also mixes things up, es-
pecially when the Nashville native is in Florida. He
dodged hurricanes on his last bout in the Sunshine
State, and got better acquainted with UF's name-
sake mascot.
"So, we broke into an alligator farm, which was
probably a bad.idea," said Hoge. "We narrowly
escaped with our lives, for lack of a better term
for it. So, yeah, I don't think we're going to do that
anytime soon."
Unfortunately, Hoge said the shows in Florida
were kind of slow, but he understands why.
"Florida's one of those places unfortunately we
haven't played as much," said Hoge. "Hopefully
well start getting back down there more often, and
the word will spread, and more people will show
up."

Festival honors heritage


By LANE NIESET
Avenue Writer

Gainesville is bringing Spanish-
speaking people of all origins together
for cultural celebrations in honor of
Hispanic Heritage Month.
The month officially
begins Friday the It is importa
anniversary of the inde- recognize ti
pendence of Costa Rica, richness of
El Salvador, Guatemala,

- and continues to rec- Nona

of Mexico on Saturday spei
and Chile on Monday.
Festivities in Gainesville will be-
gin Saturday with The Fifth Annual
Downtown Latino Festival presented
by Nationwide Insurance, held at the
Downtown Plaza from noon to 6 p.m.
"It is important that people rec-
ognize the history and richness of
the Hispanic community," said Nona
Jones, the Nationwide Insurance out-
reach specialist. "We are fortunate to
have one of the largest Hispanic popu-
lations here in Florida, and this month
allows us to reflect on their contribu-


n

ci


tions to society and the country."
The night will include a Latin jazz
and salsa concert starting at 8 p.m.,
featuring local bands such as Ritmo
Latino and Nino Castenada's World
Latin Jazz.
"Latinos should come to celebrate
their culture and have
t that people a good time with
e history and their own people in
a family-atmosphere
he Hispanic celebration," said
unity. Wilfredo Melenedez, the
Jones president director of the
rance outreach Chamber of Hispanic
iallst Affairs. "Non-Hispanics
should also come out to
enjoy the richness of the
culture, and enjoy the authentic food
and dancing."
A film festival will also be held
from Saturday through Oct. 21 at the
Hippodrome Theatre, sponsored by
the Latina Women's League. Films will
be shown each Saturday at 2 p.m., ex-
cept on Oct. 7.
A variety of award-wining mov-
ies will be played at the festival.
Admission to the films is free, and
there will be a $5 fundraising raffle.


Films explore effects of war


I(I resident George W. Bush is assas-
sinated by a sniper shortly after a
- speech in Chicago. A crowd of sup-
porters breaks into a panic.
A fatal wound caused by a high-powered
rifle blast to the stomach kills the 43rd presi-
dent of United States. Bleeding profusely, he
dies in the arms of Secret Service agents.
That's the opening scene to
a controversial film, premiering Shem
at the Toronto International Film
Festival later this month.
"Death of a President" was
written and directed by Gabriel
Range, a British filmmaker, in con-
junction with BBC Channel 4.
Leaks of the film have surfaced
in cyberspace, drawing both condemnation
and acclaim.
The film, reportedly intended to explore
the effects of the war on terror, is just one in
a lengthy series produced by the BBC, explor-
ing the long-term effects of this worldwide
conflict.
Other films include a fictional account of
British Prime Minister Tony Blair on trial after
he resigns in shame, cloaked in scandal.


F


I


The mock trial shows how political events
beyond Blair's control shape his future.
Also included in the series is a documen-
tary starring Saddam Hussein's daughters
conducting "psychological interviews" with
the Duchess of York and Stephen Fry.
In "Death of a President," Bush's face was
digitally planted on a British actor's head.
The film is a series of recreations
Fleenor of archived footage and inter-
views.
9i eIn the film, the American me-
dia immediately convict a Muslim
man in the court of public opinion
before any evidence is gathered.
S This was done in an attempt to
depict the polarization the film-
maker feels has harmed the U.S. since Sept.
11.
The two-hour film will be broadcast in
October on BBC Channel 4.
Stateside, a bidding war has ensued with
several film companies lobbying for the
American distribution rights.
According to The Associated Press, the
Bush administration won't "dignify the film
with a comment."


Everyday items offer cheap decoration for bland rooms


Sy roommate and Ihave off-
white walls in our condo.
They've bothered us since
day one.
The previous homeowner left us
a gold-framed painting of a palm
tree hanging by our kitchen table.
Not that it isn't appreciated, but
even if it's free, boring artwork just
isn't aesthetically pleasing. And a
random painting of plant life hang-
ing on off-white walls just makes the
place look ... off.
But we're creative. We're cheap.
And we've found an inexpensive
solution to our drab decor problem.
We've decided to hang puzzle


art. It's simple: Do a puzzle, paste
the back together, frame and hang.
It's fun, cheap and will give us
a reason to get sidetracked from
homework as we search for the next
piece that fits.
I'm no interior decorator, but the
one thing I've learned about wall
art for room decor in college is that
it's surprisingly easy to decorate for
cheap. You've just got to be creative
with what you have.
For instance, one of my friends
Stacked up all of his baseball hats on
one of his walls. I don't wear base-
ball caps, but even I was impressed
that a hat collection could actually


be a cool decoration. Plus, it created
more storage space in his room
without costing him a dime.
Photo collages don't cost much,
either, which is probably
why they're one of the Jenr
most popular and easi-
est ways to decorate. Just
raid the photo albums for
your favorite photos and
arrange them creatively
on poster board no
frame required. For a
unique edge, make col-
ored photos stand out among black
and white ones.
Besides hanging photos, I like

Home is


where the


internet is

iving with your lover isn't a
new idea by any stretch.
But it is still incredibly
modem in my neck of the woods,
and quite a statement when it
comes to level of seriousness.
Neither Dearest nor I is willing to
commit to a shared residence, not
to mention that my father would
probably rather I lived in jail than
with a boy.
But the other day when my
friend asked where I lived; I hesi-
tated. Did she mean, where did I
spend most of my time, or where
I got my mail? In the transient na-
ture of the college lifestyle, I real-
ized what makes home, home.
It's not my clothes, which I keep
(among various other places) in
the back of my car, along with two
suitcases still half-packed from the
summer. Forget toothbrush or de-
odorant too cheap not to replace.
It's not even
Maghan McDowell my computer,
because I have
a laptop. It's
the Internet. *
I'll explain:
__ "_.... __ This semes-
IfS' ter, I have
yet to have
Internet access at my new apart-
ment. For various reasons, to
which I'm sure you can relate, Cox
Communications is, let's say, exag-
gerating in their claims to be a high-
speed Internet provider. I find their
services to be very, very slow. And
so I am forced to use the Internet at
Dearest's house.
Internet access is what's keeping
me from living the highly indepen-
dent lifestyle (and not the lifestyle
of a 100 percent attached half of a
couple) that I purport to promote.
Rather, by depending on my
boyfriend for Internet access, I find
that I am quite attached to him. I
depend on the Web to such an ex-
tent that I can't conceive of a true
home without it.
Sure, I go to my official residence
to check my mail, use my printer,
take a shower, store my textbooks
and winter clothes, and so on. But
I certainly can't relax there for any
period of time. How else will I read
the news in the morning? How will
I check my e-mail? Do research?
Get class notes?
Most importantly, how will I
submit this column?
Surprisingly, relations between
Dearest and I have remained rather
smooth. He does his activities,
and I do mine. But I'm ready to
unpack my car. I'm ready for my
own place. I'm ready for my own
Internet access.
How has the Internet affected
your relationship? Is living with
your lover.a good idea? Write mne .,

New Hipp play chronicles screenwriting


'Gone With the Wind' gets a makeover


By LORI M. FINKEL
Avenue Writer

The munchkins of the "Wizard of Oz"
movie project were dumped off some-
where in a ditch alongside the yellow brick
road so that Hollywood director Victor
Fleming, who slapped up Judy Garland
(only once!), could accompany famous
Hollywood producer David O. Selznik in
his dream of fashioning a screenplay out of
the novel "Gone With the Wind."
The only cannon standing between
Selznik and his claim to cinematic history
was that the hired writer Ben Hecht, with
a deadline of one week to finish the entire
screenplay, hadn't read past the first page
of the book.
Aside from the quick-witted ban-
ter, "Moonlight and Magnolias" at the
Hippodrome Theatre offers more than just
slapstick comedy, galloping deeper into
the racism and prejudice that surround
the production of a story set in the slavery-
stricken South at the time of the Civil War.
Hecht, as a Jew in the World War II
era, feels that the esteem of the so-called
"Jewish Hollywood" of 1939 is upon his
shoulders, and so wants the movie to be as
progressively PC as possible.
He tries to slip in an empowering
monologue for Scarlett O'Hara's black
servant, Prissy, while Selznik, also a Jew
in' I0oJiywood, takes a~ wave-making ap-


proach to correctness, discouraging the
modernization of Margaret Mitchell's
masterpiece.
Mosey on over to the bar during the
15-minute intermission (if you are 21 or
over) and check out the drink specials
which include thanks to the creativity
of Hippodrome bar manager Steve Tierney
- The Rhett Butler, a shot of hard whis-
key, cranberry juice, lime and sugar served
in a pint; The Scarlett O'Hara, a shot of
Southern Comfort, cranberry juice and
lime; the Classic Mint Julep with a lick of
Kentucky whisky; and Hippodrome bar-
tender Tom Miller's recommendation, The
Banana Nut Martini banana liqueur, ha-
zelnut liqueur, coconut rum, with a splash
of half and half, based after the
play's main characters' weeklong.
diet ofjpeanuts and bananas.
In order to save you the trouble
of digging through the play in an
attempt to understand what ei-
ther moonlight or magnolias has
to do with "Gone With the Wind" T
(which is nothing), you should S
know before attending that the
title is just a fancy colloquialism S
used in describing Southern lit- T
erature.
"Moonlight and Magnolias,"
which is based on a true story,
is directed by Jim Wren, who re-
ceivedamtaster's degree in acting : -


and directing at UF.
Although he and his family reside in
Greensboro, N.C., where he is graduate
acting adviser and coordinator of the
performance program at the University
of North Carolina, he enjoys returning to
Gainesville to work with the Hippodrome
on this play.
"Moonlight and Magnolias," which
premiered Sept. 8, will be running eight
shows a week until Oct. 1.
Showtimes are Tuesday through Friday
at 8 p.m., Saturday at 5 p.m and 8:30 p.m.,
and Sunday at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
Tickets for the general public run at $25
to $30, but tickets for students are only
$10 with a valid student ID and can be ob-
tained from the Hippodrome box office in
advance or before the show.

14, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 14,2006


FSU's concert schedule bests Gainesville's lineup


vs football season. You can taste the
rivalry in the air. The thought of
- anything remotely having to do with
Florida State University makes your blood
boil, and as Gators, we want to be better than
FSU in every way possible.
I'll put it plainly: We are far behind them.
"Surely you jest," you say. "We stomped
the Seminoles last year, 34-7. And basketball?
Academics? Need I say more?"
No, friend, you do not. Our dominance in
athletics has been well-documented, be it in
the barrage of stories in the papers every day
or in a classy Andy Marlette cartoon depicting
good ole Bobby Bowden with his trousers
around his ankles. No, our downfall is not in


sports. It is in music.
Tell me why is it that FSU can attract
so many fantastic artists and bands while UF
cannot, even when our student population
and enrollment is higher? Also, tell
me why FSU students don't have to Dav
pay for any of the shows they at-
tract? Oh, that's right they have
a university-sponsored entertain-
.ment cub, the Club Downunder.
To add insult to injury, the dub
has been in existence since the
1960s, although it started out as a
comedy dub. In the 1980s, however, the club
switched over to music and immediately at-
tracted bands such as the Flaming Lips, Sonic


Youth, Dinosaur Jr. and Soundgarden.
Now for effect, I will continue to list just
some of the bands that that the club has
recently provided to FSU students for free:
Modest Mouse, The Hold Steady,
id Low Okkervil River, Of Montreal, Stone
STemple Pilots, Guided by Voices,
Spoon, Man Man, Cat Power, The
White Stripes, Iron & Wine, The
Wrens, The National, Mates of
State, Mastodon and Xiu Xiu.
SSeriously, I could .go on, but
I would surely vomit. Even if
independently owned live music clubs in
Gainesville could book all these artists, it
would cost us $5 to $10 dollars a pop (or more),


which could easily total out to be hundreds of
dollars by the end of the school year.
As for FSU students? They actually get the
shows, and they're free. Sickening, no?
The best free shows that the Reitz Union
Board has come up with over the past years
are The Faint, Of Montreal, Mae and RX
Bandits. Only two of those bands are actually
good. We also get Cursive this November.
With this in mind, I propose we take action.
I implore you to incessantly hassle the Reitz
Union Board and Student Government to cre-
ate a university-funded entertainment venue
on par with FSU's. Whether you do it out of
love for music or bitterness toward FSU is not
my concern -just make it work. Carry on.

Floyd's evokes '50s


Ss a kid, I used to watch
"Back to the Future" and
-- fthnk to myself, "Those '50s
diners are awesome." You know, like
the one in the scene where Marty
orders a milk shake, and it comes slid-
ing down the counter to him.
Years later, watching an episode of
"Feasting on Asphalt" with the one
and only Alton Brown resparked my
interest in them. I set out to search
for a lOs-style diner. I wanted
something authentic that
serves real diner food at Ken
real diner prices not a
Steak 'n Shake or a Johnny
Rockets, which are about
as authentic as Mexican
food in Indiana.
After a few tips, I
ended up 26 miles north of
Gainesville in the small town of High
Springs. Off a very dark and quiet
stretch of U.S. 441, I found Floyd's
Diner in all its neon glory.
If you want to see how your grand-
parents ate, this is the closest thing
you will find around here. Although
it first opened its doors to hungry
people in 2001, owners Mike and Judi
Kearney really have done a great job
of recreating the past with '50s memo-
rabilia, vintage restaurant equipment
and live music out on the patio.
The menu is just as bright and col-
orful as the restaurant's decor. Where
else can you find dishes with names
like "The Smothered Motha," a half-


F


pound burger topped with mush-
rooms; peppers, onions and melted
mozzarella cheese, for $7.99? Or
pizzas named after each member
of The Beatles, and paninis named
after the Three Tenors?
Doesn't it sound appealing to
you already? The .menu does ex-
tend beyond the traditional diner
fare of burgers, onion rings and
milk shakes. Everything from
"Gilligan's Wild Alaskan Salmon,"
"The Skipper's Fresh
eng Island Brook Trout" and
"Paella," to filet mignon
wrapped in bacon and
' smothered in brandied
mushrooms are among
their eclectic selections.
" l/I Floyd's also offers a
full bar, serving an ar-
ray of beer and liquor. Oh, and try
the "Build Your Own Sundae" for
$3.99.
It .is certainly an experience to
go to Floyd's, and worth the short
drive up Interstate 75. Save your
trips to Steak 'n Shake and lame
pizza buffets for those late-night
"I'll-eat-anything-to-stay-awake"
runs.
The next time you and your
friends want to get some great food
in a great atmosphere, take a trip
to High Springs. Just head west on
U.S. 441, and amid the fields and
various churches there will be a
bright neon building on your left.


Film festival delivers variety


By KELLY SEREIKAS
Avenue Writer

Rain denied many the chance to enjoy a
classic film under the stars Sunday. "West Side
Story" was scheduled as the first installment of
the Sunday Sundown Film Series, which brings
movies to Gainesville's Downtown Plaza.

were placed on the lawn, they I've heard that

the movies that will be shown event coo
at the plaza for the next three
Sunday. Bill Bryson, the event coordinator for
the city of Gainesville's Department of Parks,
Recreation and Cultural Affairs, planned
the series when he found extra money in his
budget for this fiscal year. The money must be
spent by September.
Bryson teamed up with Roger Beebe, the
owner of Video Rodeo, -to choose four very
different films that share the common theme
of birthdays.
"The birthday theme seems arbitrary in
some ways, but it allowed us to choose movies
we really love," Beebe said.


Beebe provided Bryson with a list of 100
movie possibilities to choose from that had
been meaningful to him at some point in his
life. They also wanted to choose movies that
families could enjoy.
"West Side Story" was chosen for director
Robert Wise's birthday. "Instrument," a docu-
mentary on the band Fugazi, will be shown

d sirg. Bryson said he is interested
yson to see the crowd for "Sound of
rdinator Music."
"I've heard that it's becom-
ing like 'Rocky Horror Picture Show' with a
cult following," Bryson said. "There are people
that dress up and come out in crowds to dance
and sing."
He worked to create a pleasing atmosphere
for the movie's showing, with free popcorn and
drinks. Bryson, who is in charge of events on
the plaza, hopes to do a more heavily marketed
film festival next year. For now he invites fami-
lies and friends to bring blankets, chairs and
food to the lawn of the Downtown Plaza to
enjoy a free movie for the next three Sundays
as the summer heat subsides.

Southern Comfort

Ryan Smith at home in Gainesville


By ANTONIO GONZALEZ
Alligator Staff Writer -
agonzalez@alligator.org

The tears he held back on the
Gator Walk a few hours earlier
were gone, but new ones started
to form in the comer of his eyes.
As he waited in a crowded tun-
nel with his teammates in the
south end zone of Ben Hill Griffin
Stadium before the Southern
Miss game, Ryan Smith strapped
on his helmet and let it all pour
out.
He didn't want anyone to see
how months of agony and years
of waiting affected him, so he
tilted his head and stayed silent
amid his raucous teammates.
Before his thoughts could
linger, public address announcer
Richard Johnston made his fa-
mous call, "Heeeeeeeere come
the Gators!" that starts every UF
home football game.
Smith rushed out of the tun-
nel into a sea of orange and blue

His journey from
California to Florida via

He was now living
his dream, which
seemed uncertain just six months
earlier.
It wasn't the first time the 5-
foot-10, 165-pound comeback
from Diamond Bar played in
front of a jammed-packed sta-
dium, but it had been a while.
Through his determination, a
new NCAA rule and a little bit
of luck, Smith was finally back in
the spotlight.
"There was a time when I
thought moments like that would
never happen again," he said.
"It's unbelievable when I sit back
and think about it."
Smith was a little-known
recruit out of high school but
exploded onto the college foot-
ball scene as a redshirt freshman
on Coach Urban Meyer's unde-
feated Utah team two years ago.
Soon after, The Sporting News
named Smith to its second-team
Freshmen All-American squad.
But Meyer, along with Smith's
close friend and second-
ary coach Chuck
Heater, left Utah for

"We just tried to help him get

But Snuth w-ill admit there are
some big differences from Utah.
The heat and humidity, for in-

to adjust to. And he still can't get

Meachem.
With 107,000 expected to be
screaming at Neyland Stadium,
Smith will be back in the lime-
light of college football where
he's always wanted to be.
"It's a dream come true," he
said. "It has hit me, but when I
look back on it a couple years
from now or somewhere down
the line, I'm going to really real-
ize how big this whole situation
has been."


UF must convert shot attempts against ranked teams


* THE GATORS PLAY TWO TOP-20
TEAMS THIS WEEKEND.

By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

UF soccer coach Becky Burleigh called her
team's schedule "probably one of the mostdif-
ficult in the country."
Apparently, that's how her team likes it.
Going into this weekend, the No. 18 Gators
(3-2-1) have already faced two top-10 teams.
UF tied defending champion and then-No. 1
Portland and lost to No. 2 Florida State 1-0.


On Friday, UF will have another tough
match as it travels to No. 17 Duke. Then on
Sunday, the Gators play a third top-10 oppo-
nent No. 5 North Carolina.
That's four ranked teams in the first eight
matches.
"We've embraced the challenge," sopho-
more Ameera Abdullah said. "I think we
wanted the challenge for a long time. [We
want] to get some wins under our belt that
mean something. It's definitely building our
team confidence having a tie against Portland
and a game I think we should've won against
FSU."
Still, with ten true freshmen, many Gators
are seeing this type of competition for the first


time.
"I think that's why they came here to
play good competition," Burleigh said. "It
tells us a lot about our team and gets us really
tested before we head into
conference play."
However, if UF expects
to conquer this difficult
weekend, it must improve
its shot percentage. In both
UF losses, the Gators man-
aged to outshoot the oppo-
Abdullah nent but were unable to net
one goal.
"We have really good shots but need
to be more patient on some of them," said


Abdullah, who is second on the Gators with
seven points. "Sometimes we take shots that
we don't really need to take at certain times
during the game. Putting away the easy ones
will help us."
UF has outshot its opponents 115 to 41 this
season.

INJURY UPDATE: Junior KeLeigh Hudson
may return this weekend after-suffering a
grade-two right MCL sprain less than three
weeks ago.
Originally diagnosed to miss four to six

ing Sunday's game.

Baker to revisit 'retaliation site' with new mentality


Tim Casey/ Alligator Staff
UF receiver Dallas Baker celebrates after a 10-yard touchdown re-
ception against Central Florida. Two years ago at Tennessee, Baker
was called for a controversial personal foul.


By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
nzaccardi@alligator.org

Andre Caldwell knew it was
going to come up.
Two days short of two years
after "the retaliation," Dallas
Baker will return to Neyland
Stadium, the site of his infamous
penalty.
"Once the game was over,
Coach [Urban Meyer] was say-
ing, 'Get ready for Tennessee,'"
Baker said. "Andre was saying
how, 'It'll probably be brought
back up since you're going back
to Tennessee.'"
The UF sports information
department knew, too.
Before anybody could request
to speak with Baker, it already
had a plan.
Baker would speak once dur-
ing the week: Wednesday after
practice.
How would Baker handle the
eight-minute grilling?
With maturity.
"It was just a typical mis-
take," Baker said. "I mean, I've
done things I know I shouldn't
have -done. Just in the heat of
the moment, you end up doing
it anyway."
Rewind to Sept. 18, 2004, with
less than a minute left.
UF 28, Tennessee 27.


Volunteers defensive back
Jonathan Wade slaps Dallas
Baker, and Baker retaliates. Side
judge Bobby Moreau sees the
second half of the altercation and
flags Baker for a 15-yard personal
foul.
The Vols get the ball back,
march into field-goal range and
James Wilhoit's 50-yarder gives
Tennessee a 30-28 win.
"I was crushed," said Baker,
who added that he thought about
the play the rest of the season. "I
mean, it was stupid. I learned
from Pop Warner don't retali-
ate."
The receiver
hardly talks about
the incident it's
Football ancient history.
When Baker and
Wade met after UF's
16-7 win at the Swamp last year,
they didn't even bring it up.
"It was like, 'Good game,'"
Baker said of their conversation.
"He played a great game. I asked
him if he would start the rest of
the season. It wasn't really about
what happened before. It was a
stupid mistake by me, and I can't
fault him at all, really. He was
just playing football."
Baker has taken what he
learned from the incident and
passed it onto freshman receiver


Percy Harvin.
Harvin's electric playmaking
ability comes with a flaw that
Baker's trying to fix.
After scoring his first UF
touchdown against Central
Florida, Harvin slammed the ball
on the field and started celebrat-
ing on his own. Meyer's policy
is for such players to hand the
ball to the referee and find an
offensive lineman or teammate to
celebrate with afterward.
Following the score, Baker
greeted Harvin with a lecture.
"I was telling him, 'Don't make
the same mistakes that I've made.
I've done some stupid stuff since
I've been here,'" Baker said.
That type of attitude showed
just how much Baker has ma-
tured along with his team-
mates since that moment two
years ago.
"A guy that explains to his
teammate that we don't spike the
ball but hug teammates that's
the sign of a confident team and
leadership," Meyer said.
What if Baker gets slapped
again Saturday night?
"If he slaps, I won't slap him
back," Baker said. "Hopefully,
they'll get caught this time. I'll
probably laugh, walk away. I'm
not going to do the same thing
again."


UF ', A.EYBALL

Gators aim for 16th title


-By JOSH ARMSTRONG
Alligator Writer
jarmstrong@alligator.org

Coach Mary Wise is one victory away
from her 500th win at UF, but she's got
another number on her mind.
"Ask me about 15; I can tell you 15,"
Wise said. "Fifteen years here, 15 SEC
championships."
The Gators begin their campaign for a
16th consecutive Southeastern Conference
title at Georgia on Friday night at 7:30, but
the league may not be a veritable stomping
ground for UF anymore.
The Gators have gone 117-2 in the con-
ference since 1998, but Wise said parity in
the league and.a larger national talent pool
are closing the gap between UF and the
rest of the SEC.
"There was a stretch in the .'90s when
we were able to beat SEC teams without
playing our best," Wise said. "We could do
that at home; we could do it on the road.
Those days are long gone."
Still, the Gators had a 15-1 conference
record last season and would consider any
loss a disappointment.
Even. JF's lone 2005 SEC loss a five-
game nail-biter, against Tennessee was
one too many for junior Kari Klinkenborg.
"Hopefully, we don't have to deal with
that again this season," Klinkenborg said.
"Obviously, its frustrating after you pre-
pare and work so hard."
With those expectations, the Gators
know they're heading into conference play
with targets on their backs.
"There's definitely more pressure for us


to perform well every time we play an SEC
school," outside hitter Marcie Hampton
said. "We always get their best shot be-
cause they know if they take us down, they
have a chance to win the SEC."
The Gators follow the Georgia game
with a 1:30 p.m. match at South Carolina
on Sunday.

"There was a stretch in the '90s
when we were able to beat SEC
teams without playing our best. We
could do that at home; we could
do it on the road. Those days are
long gone."
Mary Wise
UF volleyball coach


Because UF played at Florida State on
Tuesday night, the team has three road
games this week and less time to prepare
for them.
"We joked about playing it like an NBA
schedule," Wise said. "Watch video and
just show up and play not much time to
practice at all."

WILLIAMS REDSHIRTS: Freshman outside
hitter Janine Williams will redshirt this
year to rehabilitate a left knee injury she
suffered in mid-July.
Earlier this season, she played sparingly
against UCLA and Central Florida, record-
ing one dig.

Cross country teams starving for wins


By ALEX WEINTRAUB
Alligator Writer

The UF men's and women's
cross country teams are hun-
gry.
"These guys are not satis-
fied," Coach Jeff Pigg said.
"And we're not comfortable.
So we want to get better."
The Gators are preparing for
the only event they will host all
season. UF will participate in
the Mountain Dew Invitational
Saturday, beginning at 8 a.m.
at the UF Golf Course. Many
players and coaches plan on
having friends- and family
present.


"All my friends are coming
and all my roommate's friends
are coming," senior Jamie
Geissler said. "Everyone we
know is going to be there."
Geissler finished second at
the University of Tampa Early
Bird Classic last weekend
- UF's first meet of the season.
She is also rebounding after sit-
ting out last season with .,an-
tar fasciitis, a foot irritation.
"It was really nice (tak-
ing second in the Early Bird
Classic) becauseI haven't done
anything for a year," Geissler
said. "I was getting really
frustrated with my injury. It felt
good to do well."


The men's team looks to
capitalize on its first-place fin-
ish at the Early Bird Classic, UF
runners took five of the top six
spots, including Jose Garcia's
first-place finish. Garcia has
missed the
last two
years due to
his redshirt
Cross status and
Country academic
concerns.
"It was good to see that the
work paid off," Garcia said.
"What was more important
was that we had four of our
guys finish in the top four and
everyone pretty much finished


in the top 10."
Pigg wants his team to carry
over the momentum gained
during the summer to regular-
season workouts. He already
sees a difference between 2006
and 2005.
"Last year, we hoped we
were going to be good," Pigg
said. "This year, we are plan-
ning on being good, and we're
not going to accept anything
else.
"They have spent the last
year having not achieved the
things they hoped to in cross
country and are making sure
that wasn't going to happen
this year."


-F invt WOMEN'S T oSi

UF invites top teams to Gainesville


By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Writer

Tired of all the college football talk
around campus? Well, the UF women's
tennis team may have your cure.
The Gators will participate in the an-
nual Gator Fall Classic at 2:30 p.m. on
Friday. Coach Roland Thomqvist hopes
this year's tournament will help get the
team off to a fast start.
UF finished last season ranked No. 2
overall. It marked the 12th consecutive
time the Gators finished in the top three of
the final national poll.
"Traditionally, we've started maybe a
little bit slower, but this year we invited
Duke, who was a top-10 team last year,
Miami was [No.] 3 and South Florida,
which really pushed us in the NCAA tour-
nament," Thomqvist said. "We wanted to
get a little bit more quality competition
early to see where we stood."


The acclimation of freshmen Megan
Alexander and Csilla Borsanyi to highly
ranked opponents is something Thomqvist
will watch closely.
"They've looked really good in
practice, but it's seeing them
under the real lights [...] that
I'm most interested in."
Roland Thornqvist
UF women's tennis coach

"What I'm most anxious to see is how
our first-year players will do against this
quality of field," Thomqvist said. "They've
looked really good in practice, but it's see-
ing them under the real lights that's
what I'm most interested in finding out."
While strong play from the freshmen
is important to UF's success, it is the play'
of juniors Diana Srebrovic and Whitney


Benik that will determine how far the
Gators go this season.
-Srebrovic, who posted a 37-10 record in
singles last season, is the top-ranking UF
player on the singles chart at No. 8.
With last year's No. 1 player Alexis
Gordon graduating, it's up to Srebrovic
to pick up the slack and lead the team.
That's something Thomqvist feels she can
handle. The coach has considered her a
No. 1-caliber player since May.
Singles isn't the only place where the
team hopes to excel. UF boasts two top-40
doubles tandems.
Although Thomqvist feels confident
about what he'll get from his singles play-
ers, he wants to see a bit more from his
doubles teams.
"After knocking around here for two
weeks, I have a pretty good feel for where
we are singles-wise," Thomqvist said.
"But this is too early in the season to know
what we'll do with doubles."

"You kind of know certain tendencies

"Of course, players get better every
year, so you can't overlook her."
Wise doesn't think the Gators' expe-
rience with Cole or Taylor will be a big
factor in the matches.
"It's one thing to be familiar with
those players, and it's one thing to know
what their favorite shots are," she said.
"It's another thing to be able to stop it."

Gators to test Vols' resurgence theory


By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
dtreat@alligator.org

It was a shocking fall from
grace, one that began with a
blocked field goal in Gainesville
and culminated with Vanderbilt,
of all teams, celebrating in
.Neyland Stadium.
Tabbed as the preseason
Southeastern Conference favorite
and a possible national cham-
pionship contender, Tennessee
crashed and burned in 2005, fin-
ishirig the year with a 5-6 record,
no bowl game and 100 questions
staring the Volunteers in the face
as they entered a difficult off-
season.
"You could put bits and
pieces together and pos-
sibly say that we're back,
but I don't think we ever
left."
James Wilhoit
Tennessee kicker

Except the time off didn't
eliminate the negativity shroud-
ing the school, as multiple players
were arrested.
And yet, as a home under-
dog to California in their season
opener Sept. 2, you'd never have
known that anything was differ-
ent. The Vols raced out to a 35-0
lead and won 35-18.
In game two, however, they
barely held on to defeat Air Force
after a late two-point conversion
attempt by the Falcons went beg-


going.
So which is it?
Are the Volunteers back, or are
they still a work-in-progress?
"You could put bits and pieces
together and possibly say that
-we're back, but I don't think we
ever left," Tennessee kicker James
Wilhoit said. "We have a lot of
talent, and I think we just need to
improve on the little things, and I
think that we've done that, and I
guess the first big test is going to
be this week against Florida."
Wilhoit knows better than
most what it's like on Rocky Top
when the Vols are rolling.
He kicked the game-winning
field goal two years ago to beat
UF 30-28 and is the SEC's leading
active scorer.
Still, the players said during
the preseason that they wanted
to prove last year was an aber-
ration. Common opinion among
team ranks suggested a change of
culture was needed, both on the
field and off.
"We've done kind of both,"
Tennessee coach Phillip Fulmer
said. "We did an audit of our
biggest issues. Offensively, it
was assignments. Our discipline
of catching the football, finish-
ing blocks and finishing runs
whatever it needed to be. I
think there was a culture change,
too. We're much more disciplined
than we were last year. Problems
we have had, we've addressed
quickly and dealt with."
Led by the return of former
offensive coordinator David
Cutdiffe, the Vols' offense has
flourished in the season's first
two games..


Erik Ainge leads the nation
in passing efficiency and wide
receiver Robert Meachem has
averaged 148.5 yards per game,


second in the country.

Kicker not fazed despite no FG attempts


* CHRIS HETLAND IS CONFIDENT
HEADING INTO TENNESSEE.

By ANTONIO GONZALEZ
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org

UF kicker Chris Hetland has attempted
plenty of field goals this season for the Gators,
just not in any games.
While UF's offense was busy outscoring
its first two opponents 76-7, it never once at-
tempted a field goal meaning Hetland's
first try may come Saturday night against
Tennessee in a hostile Neyland Stadium.
Hetland said he isn't worried about knock-
ing off any rust.


"I think I get more nervous in practice than
I do in the game," Hetland said. "I got Coach
Meyer breathing down my neck, and that's
more pressure than 90,000."
Hetland said Meyer will stand directly
behind him during practice and say, "Make
it," while alternating between
whispering and screaming to
try to throw him off.
Meyer said he would have
Football liked to get Hetland an attempt
earlier but that the offense has
been clicking so well he didn't need Hetland.
Regardless, Meyer still has faith in his kicker..
"Chris has made some key field goals for
us in the past," Meyer said. "I'm not that wor-
ried about it. He's a senior, and he's been to
that stadium before."


The new NCAA timing rules have also
influenced Meyer's decisions. Fewer posses-
sions means fewer scoring opportunities, so
Meyer wants to get as many touchdowns as
possible.
However, touchdowns may be harder to
come by against the Vols. Hetland knows the
game may end up depending on his right foot,
but he said that's why he chose to be a kicker.
"I hope it does come down to me," he said.
"It's your chance to shine your one moment
to help the team. That's exciting. That's what
I live for."

INJURY UPDATE: Jemalle Cornelius was carted
off the field during practice Wednesday Meyer
said Cornelius was feeling light-headed, so he
pulled the receiver from practice.


Ainge


bounces


back

By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
-lanastasis@alligator.org

Erik Ainge remembers the
dreary-games. Ainge remembers
holding the clipboard. Ainge re-
members that he wants to forget
his 2005 season.
"It's toughto play and not play
and play and not play," recalled
Ainge, now Tennessee's starting
quarterback. "I think at times last
year I handled it very well, and
at times I didn't. Instead of say-
ing, 'What's the defense doing?'
I was out on the sidelines going,
'Why am I not in the game? I just
threw a touchdown.' It hurt me
awhile."
Now, look-
ing back on it
S all, it hardly
makes sense.
Ainge leads
the nation in
passing effi-
inge ciency (226.63)
and has
thrown for seven touchdovais,
tied for the national lead with
- among other people UF's
Chris Leak.
So as Ainge gears up for the
Gators in a crucial Saturday night
showdown, you can't help but
wonder what changed and how.
You can't help but ask how a
quarterback who threw more in-
terceptions than touchdowns as
a sophomore suddenly headlines
the country's best passers. Two
words: David Cutdiffe.
After suffering an abysmal 5-
6 record in 2005, the Volunteers
rehired the coach who mentored
quarterback Peyton Manning
with Tennessee and brother Eli
with Mississippi. .
So Cutcliffe, who coached
the Rebels (1999-04) before be-
ing fired and was a Notre Dame
assistant (2005) before suffering
heart problems, returned as an
offensive coordinator with one

Cutcliffe discipline key to Ainge turnaround


AINGE, from page 27


tenet oehis mind: discipline.
"He tells us, There's no disci-
pline but perfect discipline. You
can't be disciplined nine out of 10
times, or you're not disciplined,'"
Ainge said. "He harps on it all
the time. Discipline that's a big
word. It means a lot."
A first-rate arm out of Glencoe
(Hillsbo-, Ore.), Ainge split time
with fellow freshman and former
South Florida standout Brent
Schaeffer in 2004. That was OK.
Ainge could deal with it. He played
often enough to record 1,452 pass-
ing yards and 17 touchdowns.
Those numbers earned him SEC
Offensive Freshman of the Year
honors by The Sporting News.
But when senior Rick Clausen
seemingly played every other
series the following season, Ainge
succumbed into a mental funk. He
finished 2005 with seven intercep-
tions and five touchdowns.
"Last year was just a real strange
set of circumstances," Coach Phillip
Fulmer said. "You think it just got
in his head a little bit. We had a
senior quarterback that knew a lot
about the offense, and it was still.
a little new to [Ainge]. We asked
him to do too many things at too
young of age. It was a whole mess
last year."


Fulmer banked on Cutciffe's
obsession with perfection to resur-
rect Ainge's career. He was right.
"I think David has been very
good for Erik in that he is very de-
manding of him from a discipline
standpoint, from a ball-security
standpoint, playing within the sys-
tem, allowing the system to help
him," Fulmer said.
"Whatever Coach Cutcliffe
says, goes. He's been
around, and he's been
doing it for such a long
time. He's taken guys
from being very good
quarterbacks to be being
the best. I'm obviously go-
ing to do exactly what he
says."
Erik Ainge
Tennessee quarterback

"David, as I've said a lot of
times, is a guy who is going to cross
his t's and dot his i's and make sure
everything is in the proper order
of progression for a quarterback.
He'll do a good job of playing to his
strengths and trying to minimize
his weaknesses."
Just what does this discipline
mean, and how has it changed


Ainge's performance?
Cutcliffe has reinvigorated the
quarterback's practice approach
and always underscores the im-
portance of every individual play.
The offensive coordinator has also
instilled an appreciation for watch-
ing film.
"Whatever Coach Cutcliffe
says, goes," Ainge said. "He's been
around, and he's been doing it for
.such a long time. He's taken guys
from being very good quarterbacks
to be being the best. I'm obviously
going to do exactly what he says."
The Manning brothers also
helped spark Ainge's turnaround.
The two NFL quarterbacks gave
him advice based on their own col-
legiate experiences.
"They just said, 'Be ready to
make a choice. How good do you
want to be? How good do you want
the offense to be?'" Ainge said.
Most importantly, Ainge re-
evaluated his own approach,
especially his psyche. He tells
stories about Green Bay Packers
quarterback Brett Favre (whom
Ainge modeled his game after) and
how even Favre has had to fend off
emotional lows. It has been a lesson
learned so far, but Ainge has hardly
completed his rebound.
"I still have a long way to go in
all areas," Ainge said.
At the very least, he is headed in
the right direction.
