Facebook founder: profit not a motive


Creators defend the network's expansion


By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Alligator Writer

Facebook.com's creators said Thursday that they are not
aiming to compete with MySpace.com or increase profits by
opening their online social network to anyone with a valid e-


mail address.
"We are aiming to be a social utility where you rebuild the
real-life social networks that you already have," said Mark
Zuckerberg, Facebook's creator and chief executive officer.
MySpace, on the other hand, tries to connect users with
people they do not know, Zuckerberg said.
Zuckerberg and Chris Hughes, Facebook's co-creator and


spokesman, chatted with student journalists at an online forum
that lasted about an hour. Reporters were required to submit
questions to a moderator, and the creators chose
Student about 37 to answer.
Life Defending the expansion, Zuckerberg told
reporters that people outside of college need to be
updated on their friends, too.
"That's why we have a lot of high school students and

Senate gets


nasty over


redistricting

* SOME SAY THE SYSTEM IS OUTDATED.

By JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Writer
jdasilva@alligator.org

After fierce debate, the Student Senate
decided against changing the number of sena-
tors for each college and off-campus housing
district at Thursday night's meeting.
The Senate, which has about 90 members,
is designed to represent students from all liv-
ing areas and UF colleges. But some senators
argued that the current system of drawing up
districts is outdated.
Sen. Ben Grove argued that the numbers
regarding the voting population at some of
the colleges were unclear. The numbers for
the business college did not specify whether
second-year students with more credits than a
sophomore would vote for the business college
seat or the sophomore seat, he said.
Also, there was not an exact estimate of how
many pharmacy students at satellite campuses
are actually eligible to vote.
."We don't have to pass this tonight," Grove
said. "We can pass it next week or next month,
let's just make sure the numbers are correct."
Former Sen. Rosemarie Clouston added
that representation was inaccurate within the
Senate and the discrepancies could be fixed us-
ing a proposal by Sen. Ryan Nelson.
Nelson recommended the Senate use the
method of district reapportionment used by
the U.S. Congress.

UF ADMINISTRATION

World experts to discuss 'green' building


By CHAD SMITH
Alligator Writer

UF's Rinker School of Building
Construction will host a conference next
week on how the construction industry can
erect environmentally friendly buildings.
"The environment wins, and the
homeowner and building owners
do as well."
Charles Kibert
sustainability conference chairman

The Rethinking Sustainable Construction
conference, which will be held in Sarasota
from Sept. 19 to 22, will bring together an
international group of experts from as far
away as South Africa and Australia to dis-
cuss the future of "green building."
Green building lowers the amount of en-
ergy a building consumes, while providing


healthier living and working environments,
said Charles Kibert, the conference's chair-
man and director of UF's Powell Center for
Construction and the Environment.
"It's a win-win situation," Kibert said.
"The environment wins, and the homeown-
er and building owners do as well."
The conference will provide a vision for
green building worldwide, he said.
UF researchers are looking into vari-
ous aspects of more efficient construction,
including using materials from buildings
that are going to be demolished for new
structures, he said.
The researchers are also looking at the
economics of this construction type, which
has only existed since about 2000, he said.
In green buildings, large windows allow
the sun to provide light during the day and
ward off outside heat, which would other-
wise require more air conditioning.
Another tactic to reduce consumption is
using rainwater to flush toilets, he said. The


only building at UF with rain in its toilets is
Rinker Hall one of 18 buildings on cam-
pus that are turning green.
UF has the most green buildings of any
university in the country, Kibert said, and
Gainesville by far has the highest number of
them anywhere in Florida.
The cost of constructing a green building
is only about 3 percent to 5 percent more
than constructing a traditional building, he
said. With the money saved from efficiency,
the difference will pay off within a decade.
Donna Isaacs, the conference's coordina-
tor and a research assistant at the Powell
Center, said 40 percent.of all greenhouse
gases come from the construction industry.
The problem "can't be addressed with
baby steps," Isaacs said. "We need a bold
move."
"This conference is really looking to the
future and saying, 'What do we need to
know to get where we need to go, and get to
a sustainable society?'" Isaacs said.

Preacher just wants to help


Newest Turlington saint a college graduate


By WARREN RHEA
Alligator Contributing Writer

The young preacher on Turlington Plaza has
become a part of the scenery.
He is almost always holding his large wood-
en cross and elaborating on the passage fixed
to it.
Some students walk past and ignore him,
often making under-their-breath comments.
Others give louder expressions of disagree-
ment.

"I care about the students that's why
I'm out here. I wouldn't be out here
doing what I'm doing if I didn't believe
it with all my heart."
Joey Johnsen
campus preacher

Still others come up to give words of appre-
ciation.
Joey Johnsen, 23, a graduate of the University
of Pennsylvania, says he endures.the heat be-
cause of his college experiences.
"God gave me a heart for college students,"
he said.
Johnsen said he moved to Gainesville be-
cause of its year-round fair weather and large
student population. He is now driven to speak
against what he calls sin, including drinking
and premarital sex.
He is fervent about his message that students
must repent and put their faith in Jesus for sal-


vation.
Despite the catcalls and jeers, Johnsen has
not gone without some success in his preaching.
Since starting last Spring he has made at least 40
to 50 friends and can be seen shaking hands as
he preaches his "harsh" sermons.
At least that was how UF junior Catalina
Castaneda first described them. As Johnsen
talked, she sat down and joined in the conversa-
tion.
She seconded his views and his work, saying
that, "God doesn't force himself into your heart,
but he knocks at the door."
However, she will concede that the preach-
ing is unduly harsh, with bold lettering and a
booming voice centered upon the pathway to
hell.
Although he was surprised that many pass-
ersby only see his focus on the aspect of hell,
he said that he has no desire to sugarcoat the
truth.
The center of his message lies in the verse
John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that
he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever
believeth in Him should not perish but have
everlasting life," he said.
Many students wonder where he gets the
free time, but Johnsen doesn't work, and for the
foreseeable future he's going to remain on the
plaza, cross in hand, speaking to anyone who
will listen.
"This is my job," he said. "I care about the
students that's why I'm out here. I wouldn't
be out here doing what I'm doing if I didn't be-
lieve it with all my heart."

Orthodontist takes


vandalism in stride


By JAMES RIGNEY
Alligator Writer

Orthodontist L. Clark Hodge
walked into his office Wednesday
morning to find it in shambles and a
shower handle missing.
Joshua Adam Soud, 23, a Florida
corrections officer, was charged with
burglary and criminal mischief after
allegedly causing an estimated $80,700
dollars worth of damage to the office
building at 3500 SW Second Ave., ac-
cording to an arrest report.
According to the report, Soud en-
tered the office building about 3 a.m.
Wednesday and smashed equipment,
files and fixtures.
He was charged with stealing a $20
chrome shower handle from a shower
display in the adjacent bathroom fix-
ture store, owned by his son-in-law.
Santos Cantu, a transportation driv-
er, said he was delivering supplies to
the Whataburger across the street early
Wednesday morning when he heard
glass breaking and a loud "pop."
'" made my way over only to see a
bunch of windows breaking," he said.
He said he told the manager of
Whataburger to call the police. A few
minutes later he saw a man walk to-
ward him from the office's direction.


The man said, "They tried to kick

my ass," and then ran off, Cantu said.
Then the police arrived, Cantu said.
According to the police report, the
arresting officer yelled, "Gainesville
Police! Stop!" but Soud continued to
run toward him. The officer tackled
Soud to stop him, the report said.
Floor-to-ceiling mirrors were
smashed. Cabinets, facets and a televi-
sion set were tom off the walls.
Hodge, who attended UF for three
years but left his
Around fourth year to attend
.-:.'.. ... Emory University,
laughed and occa-
sionally smiled while
standing in his wrecked office, despite
the estimated $80,000 of damage.
"I'm 70," he said. "I am not going to
let this upset me."
Hodge said he thinks Soud used a
rock to break the light above the office
window then broke into the office.
In the 40 years he's had an office
in the building, there have been a few
break-ins but none like this.
"They break in, and they can't find
money, can't find drugs and they're
gone," he said.
Hodge said he's not going to let the
break-in bother him.
"As you get older, you find that shit
happens," he said.


UF keeps early admissions


* AS HARVARD TRIES TO LEVEL THE
PLAYING FIELD, UF DOESN'T FOLLOW.

By ELIZABETH HILLAKER
Alligator Writer
ehillaker@alligator.org

UF has no plans to dissolve its early admis-
sions program, despite Harvard University's
recent decision to eliminate its early decision
polity said to favor the wealthy. But UF will
offer financial aid estimates to ease the burden
for underprivileged students.
Early decision is an option most colleges
offer applicants. It allows a better chance of
acceptance, but requires applicants enter a
binding contract that requires they withdraw
applications to other schools upon acceptance.
At Harvard, officials say early admission
programs "tend to advantage the advan-
taged."
"Students from more sophisticated back-
grounds and affluent high schools often apply
early to increase their chances of admission,
while minority students and students from ru-
ral areas, other countries and high schools with
fewer resources miss out," Harvard President
Derek Bok said in a press release.
UF President Bernie Machen has prioritized
student body diversity, but the university has
yet to adopt Harvard's new stance on early
decision, which is binding at UE.
"That's pretty scary if you don't know what
your need package is going to look like," UF
Provost Janie Fouke said.
But to make the decision easier for students
applying to UF, the university will offer finan-
cial aid estimates to this year's applicants.
The new aid estimation program will be
available for applicants in December, before


they have to confirm if they are coming to
UF, said Ron Anderson, associate director for
Student Financial Affairs.
This year's early decision application dead-
line is Oct. 2, and students will be notified of
UF's decision the first week in December.
Accepted students will have about a month
to confirm at UF and withdraw their other
applications.
To participate in the new aid estimation
program, applicants must provide financial
information to receive an estimated cost of at-
tending UF and an estimate of expected family
contribution. Additionally, they will receive
a summary of potential aid broken down by
grants, scholarships, loans and work-study
programs.
The amounts aren't guaranteed, Anderson
said, and students should still complete a Free
Application for Federal Student Aid to receive
official award notices for financial aid packag-
es. UF's Student Financial Affairs notifies stu-
dents of their award packages in mid-March.
UP makes exceptions to its binding con-
tracts for students with severe financial hard-
ships, said admissions director Zina Evans.
For students to make an informed college
decision, Evans said, UF must get its applica-
tion information out to a wide variety of high
schools.
There are three different application options
at UF early decision and the two nonbind-
ing regular decision options that provide
students with different time lines to apply,
Evans said. If students don't get into their first-
choice schools, they still have enough time to
apply to UF
Staggering the application dates helps UF
officials see what direction the applicant pool
is heading toward, Evans said. "They get more
time to weigh the pros and cons," Evans said.

STUDENT LIFE

UF rocks on with free tunes


* DOWNLOADS ONLY
PLAY ON COMPUTERS.

By JESSICA JARVIS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Students at UF can now fill
their hard drives with free mu-
sic legally.
The Ruckus Network, a mul-
timedia downloading service,
has chosen UF as a pilot school
because of strong student inter-
est, said Charlie Mobre, senior
vice president of corporate de-
velopment for Ruckus.
UF students can register
with a valid GatorLink account
to gain access to more than 1.6
million free songs, he said.
Ruckus received inquires
from students last spring re-
questing the service. Ruckus
does not have an "official con-
tract with UF.
When a school becomes a
partner, Ruckus places servers
on campus to provide faster


downloads, free movies and
television shows, a service not
available to pilot schools.
UF students will have access
to the service's entire music
catalog. Ruckus makes direct
deals with recording labels to
provide free, licensed copies of
their music, he said.
Music files stay on the user's
computer and cannot be moved
to a portable device or audio
CD for free. Ruckus files are not
compatible with iPods, he said.
Although files downloaded
from Ruckus have restrictions
attached, the company aims to
supply students with a safe,
legal alternative while still pro-
viding the service free, he said.
Pilot schools are new
grounds for Ruckus, so it's hard
to say how long the service will
be available if the university
does not sign a contract with the
company, he said.
Within the first week of avail-
ability, more than-1,900 students
signed up for the service and


began downloading, he said.
Jared Kom, a UF freshman,
heard about the service through
a message on Facebbok.com. He
signed up on the Ruckus Web
site and in less than two weeks,
he had downloaded 160 files,
he said.
"I can download songs
quickly a full album with 14.
songs in about 30 seconds," he
said. "But it's not really for the
audiophile out there."
However, UF freshman
Elizabeth Coomber was. con-
cerned with the legitimacy of
the service and decided not to
register, she said.
"It asked for a lot of informa-
tion I didn't want to give away
if it wasn't legit," she said.
More information is needed
before officiallybringing the ser-
vice to UF, said Ryan Moseley,
Student Body treasurer.
"We will always consider
things students want," he said.
"Free MP3s sound great, but it
comes down to logistics."


Swamp, Pants pitch


Fall election goals


By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Staff Writer
llewis@alligator.org

The Swamp and Pants parties are
both pitching big ideas for Student
Government but similarities be-
tween the groups end there.
The organizations released po-
litical platforms Thursday evening,
with Swamp calling for fair tuition
policies and Pants guaranteeing no
promises except "to be open (and)
to be fun."
If Pants candidates win seats
during the Fall election to be held
Sept. 26 and 27 -party officials say
they will work to alter perceptions
of SG as an elitist club.
"If you start bringing in a bunch


of serious platform issues, you just

Editorial
We love the Internet. It puts everything right at your
fingertips, from news to music to "Buffy the Vampire
Slayer" fan fiction. Which we don't read, honestly.
Looking for that new Audioslave CD? Shame on you.
But with a few mouse clicks, you can drop $11:99 at the
iTunes music store and listen to it tonight. Or you can save
your money. (For the record, the Alligator does not sup-
port illegal file-sharing.)
Or maybe you're into Jennifer Aniston. Really into her.
In an unhealthy way. Wikipedia can tell you everything
you'd ever want to know about TV's Rachel Green. Did
you know Telly Savalas Kojack! was her godfather?
We bet you didn't. Isn't the Internet great?
Or who knows, maybe it's obscure pornography you're
after. Hey, don't look at us like that. Everything in that
video was legal in the country where it was filmed. But
let's never speak of this again.
Whatever you do online and we're not judging it's
hard to think of a world without the Internet. So follow us
down the information superhighway in this week's edi-
tion of...



Darts & Laurels

We kick things off with a get-a-life-already DART for
the Gainesville Police Depatment, which now stalks UF
students via Facebook.com. That's right. If you're drink-
ing a fifth of Bacardi Dark in your profile picture, the boys
and girls in blue might be paying you a visit sometime
soon.
Facebook trolling is weird and creepy and pathetic, as
every student knows. But if GPD insists on poring over
our profiles, they should at least focus on truly heinous
crimes like listing "The South Beach Diet" as your fa-
vorite book. Ladies, that's just not a good look for you.
Of course, the real villains here are the UF students
and recent graduates who let the Party Patrol use their
Facebook accounts. Traitors! Benedict Arnolds! Steve
Spurriers, every last one of you! It's like the T-shirts say
- stop snitching, guys.
Speaking of Facebook, we toss a come-on-the-news-
feed-isn't-that-bad LAUREL to Mark Zuckerberg, the so-
cial network's founder. Recent changes to Facebook have
made Zuckerberg, a mild-mannered computer program-
mer, our generation's equivalent of Richard Nixon or Bull
Connor. That's probably not fair.
Our parents marched against the Vietnam War and sat
in for civil rights. But it seems the best we can do is burn
Mark Zuckerberg in effigy digitally, of course. We'd
take the struggle into the streets, but then we'd have to
change out of our.pajamas.
Next, we hurl a yeah-that's-totally-worth-it DART at
GoGatorNation.com, UF's new "interactive playground"
for students and alumni. "Go to UF," ads on the Web site
say and then "go write the great American novel!" Or
"go to Mars!" Inspiring. Better yet, "go win an Emmy!"
Here at the Alligator, we've got a better idea: Bernie
Machen, go to hell. GoGatorNation.com is the latest effort
in Machen's marketing campaign, which also brought UF
a new logo and slogan. The total cost so far? Eight hun-
dred thousand dollars.
Think about it. With that much money, you could pay
for 33 National Merit scholarships the old kind, before
UF cut the awards by 80 percent. You could hire at least a
dozen professors. You could even buy every undergradu-
ate at UF a pizza. Twice! But we got a Web site instead. So
check out the "interactive playground" this weekend, but
be careful Bernie Machen might beat you up and steal
your lunch money.

Faculty deserves input in CLAS decisions


How many classes do you attend that are taught
by UF President Bernie Machen? How many by
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Dean Neil
Sullivan? So why-did they decide a five-year, multi-
million-dollar course of action without consulting the
faculty?
Actually, I'm getting ahead of myself. There was, in
fact, a five-member faculty committee appointed to ad-
vise Machen and Sullivan. The five became four when
an unsatisfied professor left the process. Four represen-
tatives in a college home to more than 780 employees.
The issue here is one of governance no one under-
stands education better than the faculty. Naturally, their
opinions should count the most in times of decision-
making, especially critical decision-making.
English professor Wayne Losano, who teaches
Advanced Grammar and Advanced Exposition, is re-
tiring soon, after 50 years of irony-enriched teaching.
Losano worries that the upper-level grammar program
will cease to exist in his absence. There is already an
overpopulation of students who can't construct a logi-
cal sentence. These are'the courses that matter.
By failing to demonstrate a level of trust with pro-
fessors, UF threatens to lose indispensable courses and
valuable members of its faculty.
UF would not be the first university to alienate
its professors. In 2005, the Harvard Faculty of Arts
and Sciences was outraged when Harvard President
Lawrence Summers made a speech addressing the lack
of woman professors in the area of science and math-
ematics.
Summers cited biological reasons for women not
filling science-related positions at Harvard. He argued,
for example, that women's average SAT math scores
were lower due to neurological factors. But his largest
folly was that he gave the speech to a national audience
- not the Harvard faculty.


The faculty was not happy.
Professors held months of meet-
ings to voice their discontent
with Summers. The faculty's
persistence and willingness to
raise their voices to the admin-
Todd Portnowitz istration was a victory in itself,
Witz'sWit sparking change in governance
letters@alligator.org throughout, Harvard University.
Summers has since resigned as
president of Harvard.
Here at UF, the CLAS issue is substantially more
important than Summers' miscalculated gender state-
ment. A multimillion-dollar debt is no small problem
- and it threatens to divide the faculty. Some profes-
sors believe the state has not allotted enough funds for
their departments. Some believe the university is not al-
lotting the proper amount. Some even support the cuts
and changes being made.
The issue here is not whether the best course of ac-
tion was taken, but that such a giant problem was not
dealt with on a faculty-wide level.
The professors are the university making the
stakes here immeasurably high. The administration is
made up of human beings. They make mistakes, and
they can mend mistakes. UF must prove that it can
restore trust among faculty members and allow them
increased self-governance in the future.
"Democracy is the worst form of government,"
Winston Churchill said. "Except all the others."
An administration that ignores its faculty settles for
something less than democracy.
As is often the case, the answer to UF's problem can
be found in history and in literature. Let's make sure
that there is someone to teach it.

Letters to the Editor
Ignoring race no way to solve racism
I could agree with "Sharpton's take
on racism misguided," Patrick Barrett's
column in Thursday's Alligator if we
currently lived in a utopian, color-blind
society. But I am not so intellectually dis-
honest as to suggest that this is the case.
The fact is, as Barrett himself read-
ily admits, we continue to live in a racist
society.
Because so many minorities start off at
such a disadvantage thanks to the white
privilege from which Barrett and so many
others benefit it is impossible to achieve
a "level playing field" by "ignoring" the
problems of inequality.
To ignore issues of color and race is to
ignore racism itself. Barrett's suggestions


are based on ignorance and are simply ir- Action Party's printing promise possible

U clusion relied on some fuzzy math.

Annual walk raises funds for hereditary disease


* SUNDAY'S EVENT WILL AID
KIDNEY RESEARCH.

By JACI PORTILLO
Alligator Contributing Writer

For many, this weekend will be
one of hope because they will be
walking for a cure.
Sixty-six cities in 32 states will
hold the annual Walk for Polycystic


Kidney Disease.
Gerrie Scully, who was diag-
nosed with the disease in 1980, is
the PKD Foundation's Gainesville
chapter coordinator and has been
registering Gainesville volunteers
for weeks.
The local fundraiser will be
held at the SFCC track on Sunday.
Registration starts at 8:30 a.m. and
the walk begins at 9:30 a.m.
Everyone who volunteers will


be given a Walk for PKD T-shirt,
and prizes will be awarded to top
fundraisers.
All proceeds go toward finding
a cure, Scully said, but because no
research facilities for the disease are
located in Gainesville, the money
will be sent to other centers.
The disease is hereditary and is
the most common life-threatening
genetic disease.
The disease affects 600,000


Americans and 12.5 million people
worldwide more than cystic
fibrosis, muscular dystrophy, hemo-
philia, Down syndrome and sickle-
cell anemia combined.
The more money the walkers
raise, the closer scientists can come
to finding a cure for the disease.
"Our goal is for every walker, on
average, to raise $220 or more," the
PKD Web site said.
Last year the walk raised more


than $1.66 million, but this year the
PKD Foundation has a goal of $2.1
million and hopes to fund at least 40
research grants.
The foundation also accepts do-
nations.
Registration is $20 for adults and
$15 for children less than 12 years
old.
More information on the disease,
the walk and how to donate money
can be found at www.pkdcure.org.


Photography exhibit showcases honors students' work


By ASHLEY MIHLEBACH
Alligator Contributing Writer

Any philosophically challenged UF student
looking for the meaning of life should head to
the second floor of the Reitz Union.
The "Meaning of Life" exhibit, featuring
photography by UF honors students, will host
an opening reception tonight from 7 to 9. The
reception will offer free food and drinks, along
with the opportunity to meet the artists.
Although pieces by professional artists,


alumni and staff usually fill the gallery, stu-
dents with little to no artistic background
created this exhibit, said Reitz Union Gallery
Director Sarah Rupert.
UF senior Caitlin Uzzle, daughter of re-
nowned photographer Burk Uzzle, said she
had no idea that amateurs made the art.
"It's refreshing to see art for art's sake,"
she said.
The exhibit stemmed from a project UF

her Creativity and the Journey to One's Self

students were financially responsible for
mounting and framing their artwork.
Since the students had no guidelines on
how to create their photographs, the result
was a varied collection of pieces with docu-
mentary, portrait, abstract and digitally altered
influences.
Rupert said the exhibit is a good chance for
students to see their peers' work.
The exhibit will be on display until Friday.
Both the gallery and the opening reception are
free and open to the public.

Dear Fans:
The University of Florida and the University of Tennessee have a
long-standing history of spirited competition. This year is no exception as
our teams compete on Saturday in one of the biggest college football
games of the season. People from throughout the Southeastern Conference
are expected in Knoxville to join in the festivities. In order to avoid
potential problems and ensure that everyone has a safe and enjoyable
weekend, we want to share a few reminders.
In accordance with increased security efforts at public events, all personal
belongings are subject to search upon entry into Neyland Stadium. Items
deemed hazardous are prohibited from the stadium and include such things
as food and drink containers, coolers, backpacks, strollers, etc. No storage
space is available at the gates for prohibited items.
There is zero tolerance for alcohol inside the stadium. Individuals in
possession of alcohol, or whose conduct is disorderly, can be arrested and
ejected from the game. Students from both institutions are also subject to
student disciplinary action that could result in the loss of future ticket
privileges and/or more serious sanctions.
Fans are not permitted on the field, nor are they able to re-enter the
stadium once they leave the game. Please be courteous when standing to
cheer, and refrain from standing on the stadium seats.
Recognize that there will be a strong police presence on campus and in the
Knoxville community this weekend. Law enforcement officials will be
stepping up enforcement of open container laws, and units from both the
UT Police Department and the Knoxville Police Department will be
carefully watching for situations that have the potential to get out of
control.
These measures have been adopted to ensure that everyone has a safe and
enjoyable weekend. Our schools have a proud legacy of success, both on
and off the field. With your cooperation and assistance, this weekend will
be another proud chapter in this outstanding college competition. Be safe,
have fun, and show all fans good sportsmanship!

alumni on the site." he said, "That's
why we are continually expanding
it."
After news broke Tuesday that
the site, previously exclusive to col-
leges, high schools and corporations,
planned to become all-inclusive,
many users joined groups in protest.
The group, "Official Petition Against
Opening Facebook" had more than
36,000 members Thursday night.
When Facebook becomes open,
people will be able to associate them-
selves with any of 500 regions.
Zuckerberg said he was still decid-
ing when to open Facebook, which al-
ready has about 9.5 million users.
But he denied accusations that he
was trying to profit from expanding
his Web site. He said he was focusing
on "building something great."
Facebook made headlines at UF
when school officials warned student


leaders, including resident assistants,
to scrub alcohol-related photos and
messages from their profiles to be
good role models.
When asked about employ-
ers looking at employee's profiles,
Hughes said that members can
change their privacy settings so that
only friends can see their profiles.
"It's not about whether we are
comfortable with that or not. It's up
to the individual," he said.
Last week, students joined groups
protesting Facebook's new news feed
feature and messaged administrators
asking for better privacy settings.
Zuckerberg responded with a letter
apologizing to users, and he upgrad-
ed privacy features so members could
pick what gets posted.
Hughes said despite the uproar,
use and membership did not decline.
Zuckerberg said, "It was nice to
see people use the tools we supplied
to create a forum and have an open
discussion about these things."

Muslim students share discriminatory experiences


* FORUM FOCUSED ON THE ISSUE
-OF 'ISLAMOPHOBIA.'

By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Alligator Writer
acancino@alligator.org

One student was denied food at a
Gainesville restaurant. Another was interro-
gated by FBI agents three hours before a test.
At a third, others screamed "terrorist" on the
UF campus.
Those are some of the experiences four
Muslim panelists shared with about 150 peo-
ple who gathered at the Computer Science and
Engineering Building on Thursday night,
The two-hour forum, sponsored by Islam
on Campus and Nakba '48, focused on
"Islamophobia,' or'prejudice and discrimina-
tion against groups associated with Islam.
Omar Ishaq, Islam on Campus spokesman,
opened the night by describing how he was
denied service at a local restaurant two years
ago. Although the grill was covered with
burgers, Ishaq was told it was closed for dean-
ing, he said.
A movie depicting the unfair portrayal of
Arabs in Hollywood followed Ishaq's story.
The forum continued with more accounts of
discrimination.

a teenager, said he was on a bus to Canada awaited him. They took him out of the car and
when Canadian border officials stopped him escorted him to a garage. He said he felt afraid
and held him for four hours. He was sent via but resigned.


"They kept telling me 'What organization
are you with?"' he said.
He responded he was a student going
to Canada to meet the family of the girl he
wanted to marry.
A female officer came in, and "the mood
changed," he said. That officer took him to
another room, and he went to Canada.
Later, back in Gainesville, FBI agents vis-
ited his apartment and interrogated him three
hours before his digital logic exam.
"Needless to say, I performed the least on
that exam," Fieldhouse said,
Women's studies senior Iman Pady said
she was stopped at the airport on the way
back to America from Yemen. She was sent
to an interrogation room full of other women
wearing head scarves.
"Is it simply my clothes that offend?" she
asked.
English senior Natasha El-Sergany said
that while changing her major from pre-med
to pre-law she asked if she could see the dean,
and a staff member said to come back when
she was wearing better clothes. She, too, was
wearing a head scarf.
The forum was later opened to questions.
One student asked whether younger genera-
tions are more accepting of Islam.
"I find that young people are biased as
well," Fieldhouse said, "but they're more
open-minded."


Homegrown plants lower high food costs, skirt industrial production


PLANTS, from page 1

Two years later, Adler, 27, says
they have distributed about a thou-
sand plants. The nursery has had
up to a dozen people from UF
students to 50-year-olds working
at it at one time.
About 80 percent of the plants


are not native to the area but are
well-suited to the climate and soil,
he said. Adler's favorite, a nutritious
Moringa tree, came from Africa.
Their nursery is at the end of a
rocky dirt road off Southeast 15th
Street. Adler said it used to be a
blueberry farm. -
Now, it's home to about 40 dif-
ferent species of plants 350 potted


plants total. Each one is edible, and
Adler has tasted all of them.
They sell their plants at the
Alachua County Farmers Market on
the first Wednesday of every month.
Mulberries, with their sweet taste
and dark red skin, sell the best.
"People remember picking them
when they were kids and having
their hands turn blue," Adler said.


The nursery is inundated with
plants of all sizes.
Around A shade house

goes, mulberries and pomegranates.
A hibiscus shows holes where a
grasshopper nibbled on its leaves.
Adler has another hibiscus just like
it that has grown to about 4 feet tall.


However, raising the crops is
more than just a project. For Adler,
these plants may help "mitigate the
catastrophe" of high food costs due
to dwindling fossil fuels.
"In a way this is an insurrec-
tion. It goes against the industrial
food system that destroys land and
oppresses people," he said, "and
makes unhealthy food."

student senator

for student travel grants.
He asked that the initial amount of $20,000, which would


be used to pay for 80 additional travel grants, be increased to
$27,000 and 108 grants.
"In order for UF to be one of the top universities, we need to
promote research," Sen. Cecilia Amador said.
Travel grants are used to pay for students to conduct re-
search in other states and foreign countries, according to a
presentation given by Sen. Aubrey Dyer. The senators unani-
mously approved Boyles' request.

CRC Hosts Fall 2006 Career Showcase


By Erica Higgins


The graduating class of 2007
will reap the benefits of the in-
crease in employment.
Hiring is expected to increase
17.4 percent in all employee sec-
tors for the graduating class of
2007, according to a report by the
National Association of Colleges
and Employers.
Internship and job seekers
should be prepared to take ad-
vantage of organizations doing
increased hiring by attending the
Fall 2006 Career Showcase.
The Career Resource Center is
hosting the event Monday, Sept.
18 and Tuesday, Sept. 19 from 9:
00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Ste-
phen C. O'Connell Center.
Career Showcase "is an oppor-
tunity for employers to come on
campus to be able to meet with
some of the brightest students
at the University of Florida,"
said Ja'Net L. Glover, Assistant
Director for Career Events at the
UF Career Resource Center.
Career Showcase provides full-
time, co-op, and internship op-
portunities for all students.
The two-day event traditionally


attracts more than 300 companies
with more than 1000 recruiters.
With the expected increase in
the hiring, it is important for stu-
dents to recognize that it will be
beneficial for them to attend this
year's Career Showcase events.

Social Network Sites and Your Job Search


By Anika Navaroli


If you think your friends are the
only people looking at your Face-
book or MySpace profiles, you are
terribly wrong.
An increasing number of employ-
ers are using the internet and such
social networking sites to screen
prospective employees.
According to a National Asso-
ciation of Colleges and Employers
Quick Poll 26.9 percent of the re-
sponding organizations reported that
they have "Googled" or reviewed
job candidate profiles on social net-
working sites.
Employers are utilizing these sites
to reference the character and back-
ground of their applicants.
They are using the information
they find to see if an individual fits
their company and to check the con-
sistency of that individual.


Social networking Web sites have
made it easy to see if what an individ-
ual says matches what they really do.
Students who attend Career Show-
case at the University of Florida on
Sept. 18 to 19 should be aware of the
possibility that some organizations
may use the internet and social net-
working sites during the interview
process.
Hollyn McCoy of Wesley. North
America, a company registered to
attend Career Showcase, reiterated
such sentiments.
She explained that the issue of
employers using social networking
sites has arisen at every meeting she
has been to lately. She even ques-
tions its ethical implications.
"It's a toss-up," she said.
Raquel Jimenez of Nationwide
Insurance, another representative
for Career Showcase, provided some
tips for students.
"Keep it professional" she said.


She cautioned individuals was
personality and be cognizant of
what they post.
Since networking sites are draw-
ing so much attention and can an
impact on an individual's career, it
is important to know the proper way
to use these sites.
Ron Williams, Coordinator of
Residential Judicial Programs at
the University of Florida, warns
students, "it's really about your
character."
He urges students to be aware
that what you choose to post public-
ly on the internet has a direct effect
on your future and
makes it exceedingly
easy for a company to "Dou
pass judgment.
"Don't put anything site
on these sites you the
don't want to be on
the front page of the
paper," said Thomas J.


Halasz, Associate Director of Career
Networks for Career Resource Cen-
ter at UF.
While these sites have their
pitfalls, they do serve a positive
purpose. When used properly these
networking sites canbe an informa-
tive and useful tool.
"The. object is not to scare you,
but to educate." Williams said.
These sites do serve a purpose and
have a place in today's society.
The task is finding that appropri-
ate place. Halasz reminds students
that in using these sites it is best to
"just play it safe."


n't put anything on these
you don't want to be on

Gainesville-Area Companies BRIDGE student's need for internships


By Valeria Lento


Interested in an internship that
doesn't require you to take time off
from school to travel elsewhere?
Want to tap into Gainesville's
marketplace?
Starting in October, the newly
revamped BRIDGE program will
present students with local intern-
ship opportunities.
BRIDGE is an acronym for
Building Relationships .through
Internship Development with
Gainesville Employers.
BRIDGE exists for the purpose
of providing local, career-related
internships for University of Flor-
ida students.
Established in 2002 as a joint
venture between the Career Re-
source Center and the Gainesville
Area Chamber of Commerce, the
Chamber Internship Initiative, as
it was previously called, set out
to equip students with practical


real-world career experiences that
would help them transition into
secure and successful long-term
employment.
BRIDGE hopes to expand stu-
dents', faculty, staff and local busi-
nesses' awareness of the numerous
opportunities available in the local
marketplace.
Although this project is a rather
common undertaking at various
universities nation-wide, its estab-
lishment held significance for the
UF campus.
UF students searching for
professional opportunities often
overlook the local market for lack
of exposure and a rather severe
competition among large national
employers.
"Because many students associate
Gainesville as a small college town,
few take the time to explore the po-
tential for professional growth with-
in local businesses," said Heather
White, the CRC's assistant director
for experiential education.


"Others opt for taking a semes-
ter off to travel elsewhere for an
internship, often overlooking the
availability of local opportunities,"
she commented.
Local employers, were less in-
formed about UF students' avail-
ability and professional prospec-
tive, thus minimizing potential for
local economic growth.
"BRIDGE's greatest contribution
has been the ability to link our lo-
cal employers with the UF student
population to let them know about
the great employment opportunities
here and to get the students more
involved in our community," said
Kim Tesch-Vaught Gainesville Area
Chamber of Commerce, Director of
Community Improvement.
"The Gainesville Area Chamber
of Commerce has hired three in-
terns as full time staff in the last
two years," she said.
The Career Resource
Center will connect stu-
dents and participating


local employers, ultimately facili;
stating greater connectivity between
Gainesville-area professionals and
UF students.
Interested students are encour-
aged to update their resumes and
plan to attend one of the mandatory.
BRIDGE workshops in the Career
Resource Center, beginning Octo-
ber 4.
All essential BRIDGE informa-
tion will be provided during the
workshops.
Visit www.crc.ufl.edu for a list
of workshop times.
The following organizations
have participated.
We are working on contacting
new employers for this year.
Attend a BRIDGE workshop
for more information on which
employers will be recruiting in the
Fall.

Graduate students should attend Showcase too


By Lauren Pasquarella Daley,, M.S., NCC,
IMH
Assistant Director of Graduate Services


Graduation is looming in the near
distant horizon. You might know more
than you ever wanted to about the effects of
underwater basket weaving on the ancient
Minoan culture... but will employers
outside your discipline care?
If you're lamenting your specialized
degree/thesis/dissertation and are asking
yourself "what can I do with my master's
or Ph.D.?" ... you can do MANY things! In
fact, you might get an internship or job by
coming to Career Showcase!
Graduate students often mistakenly
believe that recruiters only want people
in specific disciplines without advanced
degrees.
I have heard students say "Oh, those
recruiters are just looking for business and
engineering undergraduates." Well, yes,
some are.
However, many recruiters are seeking
well-rounded, skilled individuals whom
they train to learn job specifics.
Graduate students are usually well-
rounded, highly-skilled, and have many
desirable abilities employers seek. Help
employers see your skills (outside your
knowledge of underwater basket weaving
and the Minoans) by placing them into
different contexts.
The key to finding employment
outside your discipline is to focus on
your transferable skills, those skills you
developed during grad school that are useful
in a variety of settings.
What transferable skills do you have? In
graduate school, many students teach classes,
write papers, and conduct research. What
skills were involved in those activities?
For example, some skills necessary for
teaching are: public speaking, organizing/
managing people, developing lectures/
learning activities, keeping' accurate
records, and providing feedback to people.
Those skills sound similar to those required
in consulting, management, sales, or human
resources. Do this process with your skills


from grad school and watch the possibilities
of potential job options grow.
One word of caution, though: Do not
try to make more of something than it is,
such as "sitting in boring 3-hr lecture class"
becomes "created atmospheres of patience
in unstimulating environments."
Employers can see straight through that
kind of resume padding, and it doesn't help
chances of getting an internship or job.
However, if you stay truthful and focus
on how your graduate education gave you
desirable skills in addition to a specialized
knowledge, you can increase your chances
of finding and securing gainful employment
outside your selected discipline.
At events like Career Showcase, you
might have to specifically point out how
you fit the employers' needs.
Sometimes recruiters will see the
graduate degree on your r6sum6 and think
"overqualified" or "we're only looking for
undergraduates."
Hearing this kind of feedback can be
particularly frustrating for graduate students
who have worked hard on their education
and might be switching career directions.
However, try to remember that you are
probably qualified to do many jobs outside
your academic training; it is a good idea
to explain your transferable skills to the
Showcase recruiters and explain how you
will be a good fit for an open position in
their company.
If all else fails, getting some practical
experience in the field you're hoping to
enter can be very helpful in securing your
perfect job.
Use the networking opportunities at
Career Showcase to make contacts and look
for internships.
Although an internship might not be
paid at first, they frequently lead to full-time
work either inside the same company or in a
different organization because you will gain
valuable, relevant professional experience
from interning. Even if you aren't ready
to graduate yet, consider perhaps getting
an internship while still in school. This will
make you more marketable when you are
looking for a job.


We encourage graduate students looking
for opportunities outside academia to attend
Career Showcase on February 1 and 2 from
9am 3pm in the Stephen C. O'Connell
Center.
The first day, Feb. 1, will feature
opportunities in technical fields, including
computer science, construction, engineering,
information systems/technology, scientific
research, and other technical or scientific
areas.
The second day, Feb.. 2, is for non-
technical fields such as accounting,
banking, consulting, government, human
services, management, retail, sales, and
other fields that do not include a scientific or
technical focus. More information on how
to prepare for Career Showcase is available
at www.crc.ufl.edu.
To make the most of your Career
Showcase experience, attend pre-Showcase
events like Showcase Essentials, Extreme
R6sum6 Makeover, The Cultural Diversity
Reception and the Internship Forum.
Also, open a Gator CareerLink account at
www.ufl.edu/careerlink to access potential
interviewing opportunities from employers
in various industries.
After Showcase, the CRC will also
present two career workshop series for


graduate students considering going into
academia and/or leaving it.
The "So You Want to Work in Academia"
workshop series consists of five workshops,
all held in the Career Resource Center
Workshop room at 5:10pm.
Individual topics include: Preparing Your
CV on Feb. 10, Cover Letters in Academia
on Feb. 17, The Academic Job Search
on Feb. 24, The Academic Interview on
March 10, and Creating Your Teaching and
Research Portfolio on March 17
The "So You Don't Want to Work in
Academia" workshop series consists of
three workshops, also held in the Career
Resource Center workshop room at 5:
10pm.
Individual topics include: Where Can I
Work with my Grad Degree & What Would
I Enjoy Doing? on March 24, Finding
Opportunities & Networking Outside
Academia on March 31, and How to Market
Yourself & .Approach the Non-Academic
Job Search on April 7.
For additional information about any of
the services the Career Resource Center has
to offer for graduate students, feel free to

UF RUN vs. UT RUN DEFENSE
UF rushes for 173.5 yards per game: UT allows 172.5 yards per game.
KEY PLAYERS: UF: Sr. TB DeShawn Wynn (16 attempts, 96 yards, 6.0 avg, 2 TDs), So. TB Kestahn Moore (15 attempts,
78 yards, 5.2 avg, TD); UT: So. LB Jerod Mayo (17 tackles, 3 sacks), Sr. LB Marvin Mitchell (19 tackles, 3 TFL), Sr. DT
Justin Harrell (4 tackles, 2 solo).
ANALYSIS: Wynn is healthy, but expect Moore to steal some of his carries. The real question is Tennessee's defense,
which allowed California to run for 64 yards but gave up four times as many against Air Force. Expect a performance
closer to the former than the latter.
ADVANTAGE: UT
\
UF PASS vs. UT PASS DEFENSE
UF passes for 340.5 yards per game; UT allows 199.5 yards per game.
-/-,,- KEY PLAYERS: UF: Sr. QB Chris Leak (600 yds, 7 TDs-2 INTs, 67.8 pct, 185.59 rating), Sr. WR Dallas Baker (13 rec.
^ 204 yds, 15.7 avg. 2 TDI. Fr. WR Percy Harvin (7 rec, 132 yds, 18.9 avg); UT: Jr. DB Jonathan Hefney (21 tackles, 11
Soloo, Sr. DB Antwan Stewart (11 tackles, 1 INT).
ANALYSIS: Can anybody stop the UF passing attack? Leak is fourth in the NCAA in passing yards. Coach Urban
Meyer has said that just about every receiver needs more touches, but there just aren't enough passes to go around.
Tennessee will be without corner Inky Johnson.
ADVANTAGE: UF


UT RUN vs. UF RUN DEFENSE
UT runs for 147.5 yards per game; UF allows 70 yards per game.
KEY PLAYERS: UT: Fr. TB Montario Hardesty (24 att 128 yds. 5.3 avg, 2 TDs). So. TB Arian Foster (24 att 91 yls,
/ 3.8 avg, 1 TD); UF: Jr. LB Brandon Siler 18 tackles, 3 solo), Sr. LB Earl Everett (8 tackles, 4 solo), Sr. DT Marcus
Thomas (4 tackles. 2 sacks).
'' ANALYSIS: UT's two inexperienced running backs have shown flashes of brilliance in two games, but the defenses they
^'fi\-- ; ~went up against had no credentials. UF's defensive line, which wasn't totally game ready for the first two games, is only
getting stronger.
ADVANTAGE: UF


UT PASS vs. UF PASS DEFENSE
UT passes for 315.5 yards per game; UF allows 154 yards per game.
KEY PLAYERS: UT: Jr. QB Erik Ainge (624 yds, 7 TDs-2 INTs, 74.5 pct, 226.63 rating), Jr. WR Robert Meachem (13 rec,
297 yds, 22.8 avg, 4 TDs), Sr. WR Jayson Swain (8 rec, 139 yds, 17.4 avg, 2 TDs); UF: Jr. DB Reggie Nelson (7 tackles,
1 INT), Jr. SS Tony Joiner (10 tackles. 1 INT, 1 safety).
ANALYSIS: The biggest individual matchup this week might just be Ainge vs. Joiner. If Joiner can read Ainge and make
some big plays like he has so far this year, he'll be the talk of Gainesville, like Nelson was in 2005. But Ainge has two
All-Southeastern Conference-caliber receivers and a sterling record in two games so far.
ADVANTAGE: UT


SPECIAL TEAMS
KEY PLAYERS: UF: Sr. Kicker Chris Hetland, Sr. Punter Eric Wilbur (5 punts, 38.6 avg, long 47). UT: Sr. Kicker James
Wilhoit (1-1 FGs, long 35), So. Punter Britton Colquitt (5 punts, 41.4 avg, long 59).
ANALYSIS: While UF's offense and defense have been scary good, its special teams have settled for downright scary.
Hetland has not attempted a field goal, and nearly every other key position is in limbo. Wilhoit and Colquitt comprise a
solid Vols' kicking tandem.
ADVANTAGE: UT




INTANGIBLES
UF comes into Rocky Top favored and a win away from entering
the national picture. Again, Tennessee has something to prove.
The Vols want to show the nation Air Force was a simple slip up in H w They
an otherwise resurgent season. Harrell's final game before biceps T
surgery only helps the Vols' cause by giving them inspiration.
ADVANTAGE: UT



Tennessee vs. UF

26, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2006


Is Meyer's job safe? Not if he can't beat UT


U F coach Urban Meyer has to
win against Tennessee.
No ifs, ands or buts about
it -he must.
Gator Nation wants and
needs a Southeastern Conference
title this year, along with some
hope that national prominence is
not far away.
Meyer can't afford to lead off the
SEC season with a loss. Not with
games against Auburn, LSU and
Georgia looming.
Forget about 107,000-plus
screaming "Rocky Top" under the
lights at Neyland Stadium. Forget
about the rivalry thing. Forget
about a questionable offensive line.
Forget about the lack of a running
game. Forget about everything
that says the Gators should lose
Saturday night, because they can't.
Not if Meyer cares about his $2-
million-a-year job.
It's not like he'll lose it this
year or anytime soon over loss to
Tennessee. Meyer's closer to leav-
ing UF for an NFL gig than he is
to being ousted and becoming the
next head coach of Illinois.
But losing to the Vols would be


Antonio
Gonzalez
Going Going Gonzo
agonzalez@alligator.org


the beginning
of the end for
Meyer. The
first push
of a giant
snowball of
bad public-
ity by the
hardcore fans
that make up
Gator Nation.
Sure, the


"Rock Star" that is Meyer has a
cult-like following now. But believe
it or not, there was a time when
Ron Zook was a likeable guy, too.
Galen Hall, Charley Pell and
Doug Dickey all had their mo-
ments.
But for each, there was that
moment when their destiny was
forever changed. That moment for
Meyer is now, in year two, just like
it was for his predecessors.
Zook's fate was sealed quickly
in his second season. After squan-
dering a 33-18 lead against Miami,
the Zooker followed it up the next
week by losing to Tennessee at
home. He made it just one more
year before getting the boot.


Hall opened up his second full
season with the Gators by losing
three straight SEC games en route
to a worse-than-mediocre 6-5 sea-
son. He was doomed after that,
but managed to last two additional
years and five more games before
getting fired.
Pell never had a chance. His
turning point came before year
two. He went a piss-poor 0-10-1 in
his first season, and Gator Nation
hasn't liked him since. Some five
years later, he was fired because of
alleged NCAA violations.
As for Dickey, a 4-7 record in
year two finished him. No matter
what he accomplished in his final
seven seasons, it wasn't enough to
please the diehards.
Only Steve Spurrier has been
able to keep fans on his side -
maybe because he turned around
a wrecked program in his second
season with an SEC Championship
and a trip to the Sugar Bowl.
So here it is for Meyer his
chance to build a legacy at UF or
become just another page in a his-
tory book no one cares to read.


UF DBs to be tested

ADVANCE, from page 26
cide the outcome.
After stuffing Cal star Marshawn Lynch in week
one, Tennessee allowed Air Force's triple-option at-
tack to rush for 281 yards.
After the Air Force game, Fulmer said he couldn't
tell who had the ball on the Falcons' running plays.
Still, Fulmer doesn't think UF will pose similar
problems.
"It's considerably different than
from the spread option," Fulmer said
of Air Force's offense. "[UF has] an in-
Football teresting offense, and hopefully we'll
be able to slow it down."
Defensively, the Gators must stop Erik Ainge, the
resurgent junior quarterback who ranks third in the
country in passing yards.
Ainge's targets at receiver, Robert Meachem and
Jayson Swain, will give the UF defensive backfield its
toughest test of the early season.
That won't stop Joiner from breaking into
Tennessee's refrigerator.
"They have chain locks on the doors," he said.
"You just got to get in there."

Holy doughnuts the rumors
are true!
Tennessee Blimp, er, Coach
Phillip Fulmer eats at Krispy Kreme.
What don't believe us? Don't take
alligatorSports Brand Picks Column's
word for it.
Let Anna Spurgeon, a 29-year vet-
eran of the Krispy Kreme doughnut
shop located at 6201 Kingston Pike in
Knoxville, Tenn., tell you about it.
"He'scome inhere several times, but
it's been a while probably last year,"
Spurgeon said. "I'd say he mostly or-
dered the regular glazed doughnuts."
If you are not comfortable with your
weight, we suggest you proceed with
caution. Fulmer, the 15-year Volunteers
coach, is morbidly obese. If they listed
weight in the media guide, Fulmer's
would require expanded notation.
Ever seen Fulmer walk through the
10-items-or-less line at Publix? Not a
chance the cashier would stop him
before he could shoplift the 11 rolls
under his chin.
Many have tried to explain Fulmer's
secret diet and failed miserably. Well,
not anymore. By subsisting on the same
cuisine that has nourished America's
police force for decades, Fulmer has
maintained padding so firm it could cut
military casualties in half if inserted into
helmets. So imagine the rush Spurgeon
feels when she watches the anti-Jenny
Craig walk through her door.
"I just say, 'Wow I know who
you are,'" she said. "It's a thrill to have
someone like that come in."
But wouldn't this facilitate a home-
town coach's future heart disease?
"I've never heard anybody die from
doughnuts," Spurgeon said.
The tenured Krispy Kreme em-
ployee describes Fulmer's visits as,
well, ordinary.
"He doesn't order more than the
average person," Spurgeon said. "He
probably just gets a couple dozen or
maybe just a dozen."

Meet Tony Joiner, UF safety
and sandwich artist.
The junior relishes the op-
portunity to play at Tennessee
on Saturday night, making a
culinary analogy of bullying an
offense in their stadium.
"That really is where we
want to be," Joiner said. "You
really want to go into some-
body else's house and take their
cheese. Make a sandwich in their
kitchen."
As for this week's road game?
Rocky Top deserves a special
order.
"Ham and cheese with a
little turkey, mustard and may-
onnaise," Joiner said.
The Chattanooga (Tenn.)
Times Free Press reported that
those comments are already
pinned on the bulletin board in
Tennessee's locker room.
If that's not enough, senior
defensive tackle Marcus Thomas
provided an easier-to-under-
stand prediction.
"I feel like we can shut them
out," he said. "I feel like no team
should get anything on us."
If the UF defense plays the
way it has in its first two games,
"feel like" might turn into
"know."
With seven consecutive score-
less quarters against Southern
Miss and Central Florida, the No.
7 Gators (2-0) are ready for real,
regular-season competition.
"We finished our preseason


with two very good wins," UF
coach Urban Meyer said.
"This is why you get up in the
morning, shave and go to--ork."
Tennessee should provide
more of a test.
The No. 13 Volunteers (2-0)
looked nothing like the 5-6 team
of a year ago in ousting then-No.
9 California 35-18 on Sept. 2.
"I feel like we can shut
them out."
Marcus Thomas
UF defensive tackle

They then escaped a trap
game against Air Force with a
31-30 win.
Whether the Vols suffered a
letdown following the Cal game
or looked ahead to UF, they've
turned their full attention to
Saturday's game.
"This game is special,"
Tennessee coach Phillip
Fulmer said. "It's the first big
Southeastern Conference game
for both of us, and it's an eastern
division game. The consequences.
of the game are significant for
both of us. Alot of times, the win-
ner of the game wins the division
or plays for the chance to win it."
Actually, in three of the last
four years, Georgia has won the
SEC East. Prior to that either
UF or Tennessee had played in
the first 10 SEC Championship
games.
Returning to the present, the
UF running game just might de-

PICKS, from page 27

'Krispy Kreme's trademark Original Glazed doughnut is actually
not as harmful as you might think just 200 calories, 12 grams of fat
and 2 percent of your daily Vitamin C intake. But is it advised that a
persAi of Fulmer's Butterbean-like girth consume such a food?
"He needs to lose a little weight," Spurgeon said. "But I think he
should still come in. Maybe he could cut out a little of everything else
and let loose with a doughnut every once in a while."
Or maybe we could collect funds for his liposuction procedure ...
Nah-- onto the picks!
Batting leadoff with a 17-3 record as the heftiest table-setter in al-
ligatorSports history is Dan "I'll take long-distance eHarmony rela-
tionips in Oklahoma if I can get them," Treat, who cuddles with his
White Devil car (an old Jeep Cherokee) during his free time.
Tied for second with a 15-5 record is musically challenged sports
editor Louis "I swear my girlfriend looks exactly like Kelly Clarkson,
Jessica Alba or Geraldo Rivera depending on what angle the photo is
taken from" Anastasis, who continues to spout references to former
Mets outfielder Benny Agbayani. Even Agbayani doesn't get it.
Also at 15-5 is gay-adoption expert/alligatorSports.org editor
Nick "Can you imagine what would happen if Ron Zook, Tim Tebow,
Brandon James and Brian Cook had kids?" Zaccardi, who bellows
"Hello!" in a confused manner for all calls whether from Tebow or the
Chippendales manager.
Batting clean-up with a mediocre 13-7 mark is professional bowler/
part-time writer Antonio "I'm not comfortable withimy Cuban roots so
I'll Americanize my first name to Tony" Gonzalez, who will be the first
to warn the masses that Urban Meyer could be fired in 2020.
Supporting the rear with a pathetic 12-8 record is apathetic assistant
sports editor Bryan "When the hell are my braces coming in?" Jones,
who recently took a night off work to cope with the light-headedness
associatedwith trading fantasy players every 15 minutes.

ON XBOX UT 2
UF 12
The only thing.stopping Arian Foster was the game clock.
The Tennessee running back ran wild against the Gators, torching
UF's defense for 129 rushing yards and three touchdowns in a 24-12
Volunteers victory.
UF simply had no answer for Foster, who carried 37 times, picking up first
down after first down and eating tons of time off the clock to preserve a
Tennessee win.
As the final whistle sounded, quarterback Eri, Ainge le the rush of
Ternnessee players onto me fielo waving one finger rigrn irto the air. UF
Quarterbac:r Chris Leak dropped to his -'nees and held ris ri-eac in shame.
Perhaps the helmet-to-helmet 'lit the quarterlaci' endured in the first
quarter (causing him to lose his headgear) had lingering effects.
Most of Leak's 260 passing yards and both of nis to.uchdowvns came
in garbage time, and his four turnovers including three interceptions


- proved to be the difference.
Despite an eas .ictory. the Volunteers outgained the Gators by just four yards of total offense, 263-259.
Tennessee scored the game s first tree touchdowns all on Foster rushes and took a 24-0 lead midway
Itrough tre fourth Quarter.
Ainge trrevj ust 16 Tinmes, completing 11 passes for 92 yards.
The Gators nicl.ed up their firs toucridorwn when Leak connected with freshman wide receiver Percy Harvin on a
shorr slant route. vwnic Harvin bro~e for an 83-yard score.
UF failed on its two-point conversion attempt and its ensuing onside kick attempt.
The Gators would drive inside the Volunteers 20-yard line with 1:03 remaining, but Leak's fumble sealed the win for
Tennessee.
Defensive tackle Marcus Thomas recorded 9 tackles, four for losses, but made the biggest bonehead play of the
game as well.
After making an im-pressive open field tackle during the second quarter, he tumed toward the Tennessee bench,
dropped to one nee ano fle'ed rs muscles. He was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct; Tennessee scored three
plays later to jai e a 14-0 lead.
