FUNDRAISING


UF plans to hit



$1 billion mark


UF21 '


TENNESSEE 20


By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Staff Writer
llewis@alligator.org

After months of swanky
galas and private meetings with
donors, UF has raked in about
$217 million in gifts and offi-
cials are getting ready to pop the
champagne cork.
In July 2005, university offi-
cials launched the "quiet phase"
of a seven-year fundraising cam-
paign to raise $1.2 billion. Now
that administrators are confident
they can haul in that much mon-
ey, they're preparing to spread
the word about their efforts.
The university's most ambi-
tious fundraising campaign
to date is scheduled to be an-
nounced to the public by next
September. UF officials will cel-
ebrate the occasion with a ritzy
dinner that month.
Because of limited state fund-


ing, UF administrators say that
private donations are integral to
the, university's success. Public
institutions get most of their cash
from donations, student tuition
and state money
Since the latest campus fund-
raiser's introduction in 2005, ad-
ministrators haven't been talking
about the campaign very much
- at least not publicly.
"Our goal is to continue to
raise money in the silent phase
of the campaign so that we will
have good examples to go public
with," said Carter Boydstun,
UF's senior associate vice presi-
dent for development. Boydstun
is directing UF's massive fund-
raiser, which is also being led by
UF President Bernie Machen.
Machen spends a large por-
tion of his time working to raise
cash for the university, Boydstun
said. Additionally, UF. hosts

Despite debt, CLAS


to honor contracts


By ELIZABETH HILLAKER
Alligator Writer
ehillaker@alligator.org

In an effort to make good on
its promises, UF is forking over
about $5 million to the College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences to hon-
or contracts for new faculty hires
and replace borrowed money.
CLAS faces a multimillion-
dollar debt, and a few weeks ago,
Dean Neil Sullivan told faculty
he wasn't sure if CLAS could af-
ford to keep its promises.
But in an interview Friday,
UF Provost Janie Fouke said the
university would ensure new
faculty get needed resources.
"It's very, very important that
we keep our commitments to the
faculty we've hired," she said.
During the past year, CLAS


budget problems have delayed
money for new faculty start-up
packages which can include
money for research, travel
expenses and equipment, she
said. Fouke said the delay made
her nervous
because a lack
of resources
can jeopar-
dize faculty
members'
careers.
UF is
also helping
Fouke departments
whose ac-
counts were swept clean in the
budget crisis.
"What we tried to do was
replace that money because the
departments had plans for that
money," she said.

KNOXVILLE KNOCKOUT


UF finally wins on the road


By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
nzaccardi@alligator.org

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. By
11:30 p.m., a drunken haze and an
annoyed nagging had replaced the
anticipated Tennessee triumph.
With the scoreboard still read-
ing "Florida 21, Tennessee 20,"
the creamsicle-colored crowd
drudged out of Neyland Stadium,
and both sadness and anger
emerged.
As media members made
their way to the field, jumping
over bleachers, a southern belle
shouted, "Slow down. Stop run-
ning around," as if chastising her


8-year-old child.
The woman would have been
drowned out by her fellow fans
while the Volunteers led 17-7 until
Dallas Baker's 4-yard touchdown
catch with 1:16 remaining in the
third quarter.
"We tried to have each
other's back and fight our
way out."
Tim Tebow
UF quarterback

"That's pretty big adversity,"
UF freshman quarterback Tim
Tebow said. "We tried to have
each other's back and fight our


way out."
The crowd slowly started to
sense UF's tough fighter's men-
tality.
When DeShawn Wynn ran
6 yards for a first down late in
the fourth quarter, allowing the
Gators to run out the dock, the
minority became the majority.
Gators fans scattered across
the upper deck could be heard
chanting: "It's great to be a Florida
Gator," while "Rocky Top" was
still blaring.
By the end of the game, the
woman's command seemed bois-
terous compared to the remainder
of the Knoxville population.
The distinct smell of perspired
alcohol filtered through the annals
of the stadium.

Nobody saw it
coming, but UF
freshman quarter-
back Tim Tebow
helped the Gators
reclaim Rocky Top.
The Gators have
now entered the
SEC and national
title races.

COLLEGE DEBT

Grad students join faculty in protesting CLAS plan


By ELIZABETH HILLAKER
Alligator Writer
ehillaker@alligator.org

More than 50 graduate students
in UF's College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences have denounced the col-
lege's budget plan as "irresponsible,
impossible and unethical" in a letter
to UF President Bernie Machen.
The letter came in response to the
college's five-year spending plan
designed to put CLAS back on track


after its multimillion-dollar debt.
In the letter, dated Thursday and
sent to state media and public of-
ficials, the students call for a public
forum with UF administrators.
S"I think it's disappointing that
we haven't heard from President
Machen, who made it his goal to
be a Top 10 university," said Aaron
Talbot, an English graduate student
who signed the letter. "This com-
pletely contradicts that goal."
The letter states that CLAS' plan,


"I think the future of the
university depends on it."
Aaron Talbot
English graduate student

which includes "a near college-wide
freeze on hiring," would prevent UF
from reaching its goal of becoming a
Top 10 school because there would
be fewer faculty, reduced resources
and less diverse programs. These


compromise the "intellectual core of
the university," the letter states.
CLAS, the largest college at
UF with one-third of the student
population, teaches 48 percent of the
credit hours at UF, the letter states.
"These budget numbers show
that CLAS is not a priority for the
university," the letter reads.
"It's not only something that just
affects the English department,"
Talbot said. "If CLAS is perpetually
underfunded, and it is the intellec-


tual core of the university, then it is
a university problem."
The letter also states that the bud-
get plan does not include student
input and contradicts the concept
of shared governance a decision-
making process between faculty and
administration set forth in UF's
mission statement.
Talbot said he hopes university
administrators will hold a forum.
"I think the future of the univer-
sity depends on it," he said.


Collector shows interest in artsy honors assignment


* A RECEPTION INCITES CURIOSITY.

By LISA GILL
Alligator Contributing Writer

A group of UF honors students may learn
how profitable the search for meaning can be.
At the opening reception of the UF Honors
Program's "The Meaning of Life" exhibition
Friday night, an art collector selected six pho-


tos for possible purchase.
Lola Haskins, instructor of the art class
featured in the exhibition, had
On told her students to pick two
Campus of their favorite photographers,
take 100 pictures in the spirit of
those masters and then narrow them down to
10. These 10 pictures represented the students'
views of the meaning of life.
The photographs included an array of stag-
gered bicycles, a splatter-painted fire hydrant


and a man holding a glass of orange juice.
Andrew Hix, an English major, was one of
the students whose artwork was on display.
"It's impossible to capture the meaning of
life," Hix said, "but it's impossible to say that
these photographs aren't the meaning of life."
The photos that interested the collector
were by Megan Fitzgerald, Jocelyn Ho, Nicole
Marie Clouston and Christina Rodriguez.
Rodriguez's mother, Chantal, was sur-
prised to hear that her daughter was noticed.


"At first I was going to cry," she said. "Now
I have chills."
Clouston, a classical studies major whose
three photos were selected by the collector,
challenged her viewers to determine the
subjects of her photos in a note posted beside
them. Her ambiguity was intentional so view-
ers would see that the meaning of life is not
easily determined.
The art collector plans to contact each stu-
dent individually about purchasing the art.

HISPANIC HERITAGE IVOtlik H

Events celebrate a growing Hispanic community


Downtown festival

brings cultural flair
By CHRISTIANA LILLY
Alligator Contributing Writer

The horns and drums of Spanish music
resonated in the air Saturday on Gainesville's
Downtown Plaza, where people sported
Colombian and Puerto Rican jerseys and
formed lines behind shaved-ice stands.
The Fifth Annual Downtown Latino
Festival kicked off Hispanic Heritage Month
from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. About 4,000 people at-
tended.

"Many people come and are sur-
prised to see there's a major Latino
population in Gainesville."
Oscar Melendez
UF student

UF senior Oscar Melendez was at the fes-
tival to represent his people with his brothers
in Latin-American fraternity Lambda Alpha
Upsilon.
"Many people come and are surprised
to see there's a major Latino population in
Gainesville," Melendez said.
The event was hosted by the Chamber of
Hispanic Affairs, a private group that has
been planning the festival since the day after.
last year's, said Wilfredo Melendez, president
of the chamber.
"The Hispanic community is growing, and
we need venues to celebrate our. culture," he
said.
At the festival, restaurants and organi-
zations sold Cuban sandwiches, arepas,
empanadas and sodas from different Latin
American countries. Vendors also sold jewelry
from Latin America.

Latin showcase sizzles
By ALEX TIEGEN
Alligator Writer

Trays of plantains, Cuban sandwiches and rice were
devoured oh the Reitz Union Colonnade as students
ushered in a monthlong celebration of Hispanic culture.
More than 50 guests gathered for the opening cer-
emonies of Hispanic Heritage Month on Sunday after-
noon. The Hispanic Student Association will oversee the
month's activities.
Jessica Klahr, president of the association, said she
wanted the month to showcase the diversity within the
Hispanic community.
"A lot of people don't think that there are differenc-
es," she said. "They see all the countries as having one
big culture as having the same traditions, the same
kind of dance, the same food."
Susana Braylan, coordinator of the
Multicu l bilingual studies program in the de-
AMulticultur apartment of Romance languages and
rAarS literatures, spoke to students about
the growth of UF's Latin American
community. Braylan, an Argentinean who enrolled in the
late '70s, said there was only a small Hispanic population
when she was a student.
Students had to travel to Miami or Tampa for a decent
cup of cafe Cubano, she said. Now, students can buy the
exotic drink at Deja Brew on University Avenue.
Braylan now sees second- and third-generation
Hispanic students, and she says 50 'percent more
Hispanic students are at UF today than in 1999.
"This is what they really should be doing: studying,
becoming able members of society and sharing their
heritage," she said.
The ceremony ended with a performance by the
Sabor Latino Dancers, HSA's dance team. A dancer
performed a mock ballerina routine before her partner
ripped off her tutu and spun her to Latin music.
The ceremony also induded a tabling fair, a bounce
castle and an inflatable jousting arena.
The month's scheduled events include parties, such
as Saturday nights Brown Unity event, educational fo-
rums and speakers.
Hispanic Heritage Month started Friday and ends
Oct. 20. The month of activities will cost about $100,000.
Student Government gave organizers a $59,000 subsidy
for the month.

smashing melon after melon in took home first prize at the event,


the name of charity.
The smashing was part of
Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity's
Watermelon Bust, billed as the
fraternity's largest yearly philan-
thropy. Thirteen sororities partici-
pated in the competition, which
included watermelon contests
and a canned-food drive.
Lambda Chi members com-
peted with sorority women in
watermelon relays, tossing, seed-
spitting and passing from person
to person.
Tom Rodriguez, a Lambda Chi
Alpha brother, described the day'
as "awesome, awesome."
In addition to a contest prop,
watermelon also served as the
food of choice for many of the
event's participants, who com-
peted in the sticky afternoon


earning a trophy for their fine-
tuned watermelon skills as well
as the food they gathered for the
can drive.
Trevor Kolski, a Lambda Chi
brother and the head coach for
Delta Gamma, said he told his
team to "have. fun out there and
try to bring it home."
The day ended with a tug-of-
war over a pit filled with wa-
termelons and water. The event
didn't count for points, but sorori-
ties Pi Beta Phi and Sigma Kappa
decided to participate anyway.
Sigma Kappa lost when some
of its members fell into the pool,
but member Caroline Pareti said
she had no regrets about partici-
pating.
"I wanted to get in the water,"
she said with a laugh.

SFCC fundraising festival unable to break even


* AN SFCC STUDENT PAID
FOR THE EVENT.

By JESSIE COLEMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer
"Mom, watch!" she shrieked.
With mom's attention se-
cured, 5-year-old Jovanna Liuzzo
bounced and screamed down the
inflatable SuperDooper Water
Slide, one of many attractions
at the Third Annual Santafest at
SFCC.
SSharing the ride with only a few


other girls, Liuzzo flopped off the
slide with a muddy splash, gulped
some lemonade and tore off to
make the climb again.
Inflatable obstacle courses,
booths selling ice cream and other
carnival attractions punctuated the
track Saturday.
But only a few took advantage
of the family fun day. After about
six months of planning and a
sweltering nine hours at the event,
coordinator Dianna Ordway was
roughly $800 short of breaking
even. There was no entry fee, but
wristbands granting unlimited ac-


cess to rides sold for $12 prior to
the event and $15 at the gate.
Ordway had intended for
her profits to go to the Plus One
Scholarship, which supports dis-
abled students at
Santa Fe SFCC.
Community Last year's
College event raised
more than $2,000;
ninety percent was donated to the
scholarship and 10 percent to
Hurricane Katrina victims.
Ordway, an SFCC sociology
major, began the event three years
ago with her daughters in mind.


Ordway, 43, suffers from mul-
tiple sclerosis, a condition affect-
ing the central nervous system.
Ordway qualifies for the scholar-
ship, but she has never applied.
Instead, she raises money and
awareness..
Immobilized at times by MS,
Ordway made phone calls from
her bed to coordinate sponsors and
performers such as recording artist
Natalie Green, a Buchholz High
School senior. Ordway spent her
own money on pizza for volunteers,
wristbands for entry and Facebook
fliers announcing the event.


Despite her efforts and new
rides including a water slide, a
rock-climbing wall and a tram-
poline, the festival didn't attract
enough people to be a success.
Brian Bunch, a business
student at SFCC and owner of
BigBGroup.com Web- design
business, made fliers and main-
tained the Santafest Web site,
www.sfccsantafest.com. He said
that inefficient advertising may be
to blame for the poor turnout.
Ordway is planning a silent
auction to fund the cost of the
festival.

Early birds

Early admissions unfair

to middle class
On Wednesday, Harvard University discontinued its
early admissions program. Big deal, you might be
thinking. But here at UF, which still practices early
decision admissions, this is an issue worth considering. Let
us explain.
What is early decision? If you didn't apply to UF that way,
here is how it works: You apply in October, get a decision the
first week of December and relax for the next couple of months
while your friends tear their hair out. Sounds great, right? But
there's a catch.
At most universities, UF included, early decision is binding
- meaning if you get in, you're supposed to withdraw your
applications at other schools. And all without knowing how
much financial-aid (or how little) you'll be getting from UF.
Of course, if you know UF is in your price range, that's fine.
But not everyone can be so sure. With the administration de-
termined to raise tuition, more and more would-be Gators will
have to play the field, applying to lots of schools and waiting
for the best financial aid offer.
That wouldn't be so bad if the only benefit of early deci-
sion was convenience. But according to one study, applying
early can increase a student's chances of admission from 40
percent to 60 percent the equivalent of a 100-point swing
on the SAT.
Fortunately, UF seems to recognize that early decision
is unfair. But the new aid estimation program, which gives
early applicants a rough guess about their financial.aid, is not
enough. Unlike early applications themselves, the estimate is
nonbinding when you enroll, your real aid package could
be considerably larger or smaller than the estimate. For middle
class students, that's a big risk to take.
The Alligator calls on UF President Bernie Machen to fol-
low Harvard's lead and abolish this unfair admissions policy.
Machen says he wants students from diverse backgrounds
- and we have no reason to doubt him. Abolishing early'deci-
sion would be a step in the right direction.

Know your candidates before you vote


lorida doesn't do
enough to avoid execut-
ing the innocent, says
UF law professor Christopher
Slobogin. He's right. Florida's
capital punishment system is
a mess.
There are so many prob-
lems, it's hard to know where
to start. Defendants in capital
cases often do without com-
petent lawyers. Killers of
white victims get the needle
more often than killers of
blacks. Most damning of all,
Florida has released 22 death
row inmates since 1973 the
most of any state.
It turns out they were
innocent. Sorry about that,
guys! No hard feelings, right?
Guys?

staunch supporters of capital
punishment. Charlie Crist
even defends the uniquely
Floridian practice of pro-
nouncing a death sentence
without a unanimous jury
recommendation. And they
call this the Sunshine State.
But you don't have to
oppose capital punishment
in principle to worry about
executing innocent people.
That's why, no matter who
ends up in the governor's
mansion this November,
all 377 inmates on Florida's
death row should get stays
of execution. Until each case
is reviewed, we can't be sure
that every condemned pris-
oner is truly guilty. It won't
be cheap or easy, but if the
state is killing innocent peo-
ple in our name, we deserve
to know.

Did you know that Jim Davis, the Democratic can-
didate for governor, has not voted in any election
since 1992? What about the fact that Davis called
the Ku Klux Klan "largely misunderstood" in an inter-
view with Southern Sportsman Magazine?
OK, none of that is true. I made it all up off the top
of my head. But think about it: Did you know I was just
kidding?
There are many people who consider themselves
conscientious, civic-minded citizens. But unless it's the
presidential election, they just can't seem to muster the
energy to participate on Election Day. What they don't
realize is that state officials have far greater influence on
their daily lives than the president does.
If the Supreme Court ever changes its mind on Roe
v. Wade, laws limiting abortion will emerge first in
state legislatures and be signed into law by governors.
Likewise, if Florida's schools are ever going to improve,
the change will certainly not come about from a federal
act or initiative. It will come from the state capital.
You are responsible for knowing the opinions of the
people who shape your government's policy. It may
take time and research (though not as much as you
might think), but you cannot rely on others to look out
for your interests.
What if you discovered that your senator had not
shown up for an important vote wouldn't you be
indignant? Or suppose your governor had a history of
racist ideology. Would you demand that such a bigot
step down from his or her position as state representa-
tive?
Or maybe you'd just expect an outcry from those
who actually participated in the election that put him


.,. in office.

letters@alligator.org If you want to vote this
November, the deadline for voter
registration is Oct. 10. The whole
process might take 15 minutes if you mistakenly write
the current date in the date-of-birth field and have to ask
for another form.
Last year, the citizens of Iraq engaged in their first free
election since Saddam Hussein was deposed. With the
risk of insurgents throwing grenades at the voting booths,
not to mention a flurry of questions about the election's
legitimacy, Iraq saw a 70 percent voter turnout.
The US presidential election the previous year, the
most pivotal in recent American history, inspired a 64
percent turnout. Pitiful. These statistics make me won-
der which country's future is more in question.
I recently heard a fellow bus passenger adamantly
state, "I don't do politics."
Unless I'm mistaken, this was his way of saying that
politics are irrelevant to his daily life. But ignorance is
not bliss. When a new round of politicians takes office
next year, will you know if they are dedicated to pro-
tecting the rights you hold dear? Will you even know
their names?

Letters to Editor
CLAS plan irresponsible, unethical
Since the College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences announced its five-year plan two
weeks ago, many of those with ties to the
university have felt both torn and let down
by the administration's actions and inactions
as well as by the continued silence of
both Provost Janie Fouke and UF President
Bernie Machen.
It is important to note that those who op-
pose the five-year plan do so for a number
of reasons. Personally, I oppose this plan
because it cripples the university's ability
to reach President Machen's stated vision
of transforming UF into a Top 10 public
research institution.
By irresponsibly eliminating entire
graduate programs, by recklessly mandat-
ing a hiring freeze in the midst of a retire-
ment boom and by unethically proceeding
without consulting graduate students and
faculty members, this plan does nothing less
than create an impassable gap between elite
public universities and UF.

We deserve better than Jim Gaffigan
Gator Growl has a storied history of
bringing famous comedic acts to the Swamp.
This year, however, you can put one in the
loss column for Gator Growl and for UF. Jim
Gaffigan will headline a show that has pre-
viously starred greats like Bill Cosby, Robin
Williams and Jerry Seinfeld. .
Jim Gaffigan may actually prove to be
funny, but who is he? UF has the fifth-largest
student body in the country, and we could
only get Jim Gaffigan while Florida State
University, our intrastate rival, gets Stephen
Colbert for its homecoming festivities. I am
unaware of the funding procedures or the
difficulties in running the large operation
that is Gator Growl, but this just seems
wrong.
I urge the students who run Gator Growl
- to shape up and the fans of Gator Growl to
voice their opinions so one day soon we can
return to the days of Growl glory. We may
not play FSU in football until Nov. 25 but
for now, the score is FSU 1, UF 0.

Don't use Web to attack public figures
This letter is in response .to Patrick
Barrett's Thursday column on the Rev. Al
Sharpton's speech. Thank you, Patrick,
for making me laugh so hard I spilled my
drink.
I happen to be an Afro-Hispanic woman,
and I respect most of Al Sharpton's views.
But I found it amusing that Barrett naively
referenced Wikipedia and Google to sup-
port his column. He attempted to discredit
Sharpton's character by writing: "Even the
most novice Googler could find enough
(scandal) to fill a phone book, but Wikipedia
had a good summary."
The fact that Barrett used the Internet
to discover Sharpton's alleged "deception,
defamation, drugs and death" does not
impress me. I conducted a Google search
and found that, according to one Web site,
Mother Theresa was a harlot.
The university library system purchases
millions of dollars worth of academic jour-
nals and database subscriptions every year.
The next time he lambastes a political figure,
Barrett should try using them to find cred-
ible sources.

Meyer a success on and off field
Antonio Gonzalez's Friday column, "Is
Meyer's job safe?" couldn't be any more
illogical. Urban Meyer has no reason to
fear for his job. Gonzalez says that a loss to
Texas would be the start of a slippery slope,
pointing out the early failures of previous
UF coaches.
Yes, Ron Zook did lose to Miami and
Tennessee in his second season, but those
were not the reasons he was fired. He lost his
job because of a lack of control with respect
to his players' discipline.
Meyer has turned that around. Our play-
ers are now solid citizens off the field who
recently set a record for their team grade
point average. They have a newfound pride
in being Gators and representing our uni-
versity.
Gonzalez also misses one final point: If
UF fires Meyer anytime soon, we will never
be able to bring in another big-time coach.
Coaches won't go anywhere without some
assurances of security.

Now confident of meeting goal, fundraisers seek campaign theme


DONATIONS, from page 1


several galas a year for its President's Council
- a group of donors considered likely to
make large gifts.
UF officials often meet privately with do-
nors to encourage those big gifts, said Chris
Brazda, a spokesman for the UF Foundation.
That organization serves as the university's
fundraising arm.
"Often for the larger gifts, it takes a lot
more time invested with a prospective donor,"
he said.
Once UF has received a hefty donation,
donors are free to funnel that cash almost any-


where they see fit, from construction projects
to new scholarships.
By next Fall, students can expect to hear a
lot more about fundraising efforts, Boydstun
said.
He said he anticipates heavy media cover-
age, and when the campaign goes public, of-
ficials will have given it a name to represent its
intended "theme."
The university's most recent major fund-
raiser, which concluded with about $850 mil-
lion in 2000, was dubbed "It's Performance
That Counts."
Private donations can be used for almost
anything, but UF Provost Janie Fouke wrote
in an e-mail that those gifts aren't necessar-
ily funneled toward immediate needs. For


example, although UF's College of Liberal
Arts and Sciences faces a multimillion-dollar
debt, money is rarely sent directly to the CLAS
coffers.
Instead, Fouke wrote, "The big need is
for endowed funds,
UF funds that we put
S..' into an investment so
that they grow into
even more money."
Every private donation UF has received
since July 2005 counts toward the fundraising
campaign, Brazda said.
"There are hundreds of thousands of do-
nors that come from all walks of life," he said.
"It's all those who are interested in seeing the
Gator Nation thrive and do great things."


To further entice donors, Brazda added,
the state boasts a matching grant program
that offers money to UF based on its private
gifts. However, none of that money is counted
toward the fundraising campaign.
Fouke wrote that when UF's campaign
is introduced to the public, she expects it to
send a valuable message to the university's
students. .
"It will be a wonderful introduction to
philanthropy for some of them," she wrote,
"letting them understand the expectation that
when they graduate and start earning an in-
come based on their UF education, they have
a responsibility to do what has been done for
them and provide for the next generation of
students."

filled the air.
UF coach Urban Meyer knew
what he was getting into after
getting advice from former Notre
Dame coach Lou Holtz.
"[Holtz said,] 'You better be to-
gether because you're going to face
107,000 people that don't want any-
thing to do with you,'" Meyer said.
As former Tennessee great Dale
Carter flipped the coin, few of the
106,818 realized what the Gators
had planned.

Once Chris Leak downed the
ball for the final time, UF didn't
take long to start the celebration.
"I was just excited," Tebow
said. "I think our whole team
was excited."
. A ringing emanated from the
walls outside the UF locker room
when players sang the school's
alma mater.
"We needed this," Baker said.
"Our whole focus was to come in
and show everyone else we can
win on the road."


Tennessee's locker room was
almost silent.
Players sat quietly at round
tables in a dim room,. heads
down, listening to Coach Phillip
Fulmer speak about how much
farther they have to go as a team.
Quarterback Erik Ainge was near
tears.
Outside on the field, Meyer's
wife, Shelley, offered up hugs for
both UF coaches and a member of
the media. But it was Tennessee
in need of consoling.

Meyer's offense


continues to evolve


* HARVIN'S INJURY AL-
TERED UF'S GAMEPLAN.

By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
dtreat@alligator.org

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. In
UF's first two games; the Gators
had finally begun to-incorpo-
rate elements of Urban Meyer's
vaunted spread-option attack,
including end-arounds, shovel
passes and option-based plays.
The difference between 2005
and 2006? Freshman receiver
Percy Harvin.
Harvin's versatility made
him a threat at H-back and
receiver, forcing defenses to
respect him every time he went
in motion.
Early in Florida's
Southeastern Conference opener
against Tennessee, Harvin was
on display again. He rushed for
12 yards during the Gators first
touchdown drive.
But when Harvin went down
with a sprained left ankle after
a 13-yard reception on the first
play of the second quarter, ev-
erything changed.
Without having the 5-foot-
11 freshman speedster in the
mix, UF's. drive eventually
stalled and ended with a missed
52-yard field goal by Chris
Hetlaned,
"We had a lot of plays [in-
tended for Harvin]," Meyer
said. "I could show you the
play sheet. [The plan was:] Get
it to Percy."
On UF's next drive, the
Gators attempted an end-
around from their own 8-yard
line, but receiver Jemalle
Cornelius was neck-tackled for
a 7-yard loss by Robert Ayers.







Phone/Fax: (888) 379-4849


Harvin made a brief return
in the first drive of the second
half but spent the remainder of
the game on the sidelines.
Without the Harvin element,
the Gators -would adapt by
utilizing traditional,, pro-style
offense that eventually turned a
17-7 deficit into a 21-20 lead.
"I call my dad after every
game, and he made a comment
that we weren't very creative.
I kind of got into an argument
with him about it," Meyer said.
"I think when you are in an en-
vironment where you use a si-
lent cadence, it eliminates some
of the things you can do. And
we were facing an extremely
athletic team."
Sunday, Meyer
Gators said several of
S.-:,,.. DeShawn Wynn's
carries would
have gone to
Harvin if he hadn't been in-
jured. This was just one of the
adjustments Meyer had to make
without his new playmaker. In
2005, before playing Georgia,
Meyer adjusted 1by adding tra-
ditional elements to his spread
offense.
"The defensive speed in
the SEC and the crowd noise
- those types of things play
a role," Meyer said. "The big-
gest role is the personnel you
use, and at Bowling Green we
didn't have a tight end, but we
sort of did at Utah. We had one
my first year, but in my second
year we didn't have one on the
team. I've never had a fullback..
If a coach is going to come out
and say we're going to run the
west coast offense, but they
don't have west coast person-
nel, then they should change
their offense."

SBaker hits Tennessee back


Senior makes up for 2004


By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. It
was happening. Again.
A nightmare remix of that
fateful Tennessee night in
2004 enveloped Dallas Baker
on Saturday.
And although this deja vu
episode had nothing to do
with Baker committing a late-
game personal foul, it could
have been just as bad.
It was halftime in
Knoxville, UF trailed 10-7
and, worst of all, the wide
receiver had done nothing to
help his team.
Enter linebacker Brandon
Siler, of all people, to save the
night.
"I told him, 'Hey Dallas,
you're a playmaker, we need
plays to be made. Let's go do
it," Siler said.
"At first, he took a little
offense to it, but then he re-
alized the kind of person I
am. You can't take what I say
[literally].
"You need to take what
I say and learn from it, and
that's what he did."
By now, you know this
story's ending. Baker caught
two second-half touchdowns,
including a critical 21-yard
score that put the Gators on
top for good 21-20.
And just think of the karma


shift involved in it all;
Rewind back to Sept. 18,
2004.
Tennessee's Jonathan Wade
slapped Baker, a player with
all of the ability but none of
the results, in the helmet late
in the fourth quarter.
With UF leading 28-27,
Baker acted on instinct and
hit back.

"Dallas came back with
a vengeance. This was
so sweet for him. I feel
great for him.
Andre Caldwell
UF receiver

Side judge Bobby Moreau
missed Wade's instiga-
tion and flagged Baker 15
yards for the personal foul.
Tennessee would get the ball
back and kick the game-win-
ning 50-yard field goal.
The Southeastern
Conference eventually admit-
ted it was an incorrect call.
Saturday, Baker returned
to the scene of the crime as a
different person.
He finished the game with
four receptions for 54 yards
and the two touchdowns.
He slugged back at Wade by
burning that very player on
a 4-yard, third-quarter recep-
tion.
"I think this hurt
[Tennessee] more," said


Baker, who leads the Gators
with 17 receptions, 258 receiv-
ing yards and four receiving
touchdowns.
"It felt great to score two
touchdowns, but I don't want
to think about two years ago.
We needed to win this game.
"I told coach [Urban]
Meyer at halftime that I dwed
him about 12 plays because I
didn't do anything in the first
half."
Just like Saturday became a
story of two halves for Baker,
it can likewise be said that
2006 and 2004 are a story of
two seasons.
"This time a year ago,
Dallas Baker wasn't the Dallas
Baker he is now," Meyer said.
"Dallas Baker would have
been cracking jokes on the
sidelines, away from ev-
erything in the past. He is a
leader."
After his 21-yard, game-
turning touchdown, Baker
rushed to his biggest critic for
a hug.
"I was the first person he
came to," Siler said, "and
[he kept saying], 'You said I
would do it, you said I would
do it. I did it.'"
What a way to seal the
game. What a calculated re-
sponse to the demons of his
past.
"Dallas came back with
a vengeance," UF receiver

Meyer lets Tebow decide game


E THE FRESHMAN MADE
THE PLAY OF THE NIGHT.

By ANTONIO GONZALEZ
Alligator Staff Writer
agonzalez@alligator.org

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. With
the game and the season on the
line, UF coach Urban Meyer
pulled starting quarterback
Chris Leak out of the game and
entered freshman Tim Tebow.
Fourth-and-1, ball on the
Tennessee 28-yard-line, the
Gators down 20-14 with 7:53
remaining, Tebow ran on the
field and took command of the
offense.
Starting in shotgun, Tebow,
like he had done three times ear-
lier in the game, took the snap,
put his head down and muscled
his way through the Tennessee
defensive line for a first down.
It was the biggest two yards
in his short career at UF, giving
the Gators a first down and a
chance to win the game.
"That was a player's play,"
Meyer said. "That was a Tim
Tebow.play. It's hard to imagine
that he is just 19."
On the play, running back


DeShawn Wynn lined up on
the right side at wide receiver
and halfback Eric Rutledge on
the left.
Tebow hadn't handed the
ball off the entire game, let alone
threw a pass. So with the entire
stadium knowing what was
coming, he was still able to bar-
rel his way through the middle
for a first down.
However,
it was
V Tebow's po-
tential threat
Through the
air that kept
the Vols' de-
fense honest.
"T He has a
Tebow
pretty good
arm too," Vols' defensive tackle
Turk McBride said. "He's the
kind of player who can make
plays, and that's what he did.
We had no answer for him."
Two plays later, Leak found
wide receiver Dallas Baker for
a 21-yard game-winning touch-
down.
On the play before Tebow
came in, Leak scrambled for a 4-
yard run, sliding just short of the
first down marker. Meyer called
a timeout and never thought


twice of putting in Tebow.
He said the freshman had
proved himself in practice and
was the Gators' best option to
get the first down.
"To put the ball in his hands
in that kind of situation," Meyer
said, "shows the kind of respect
we had for him."
Tebow finished with 7 rushes
for 29 yards, while the entire
Vols' offense rushed for -11
yards. Leak, a four-year starter,
found himself on the sideline
with a headset on the crucial
fourth down play. But he said he
wasn't upset or looking for indi-
vidual accolades; he just wanted
a win for his team.
"I knew he was going to get
it done," Leak said. "Tim did
a great job running the ball in
tough situations."
Meyer said earlier in the
week that Tebow would get
meaningful snaps, but few
could have expected they would
come on the defining play of the
night. In his first road game ever,
Tebow was thrown into the fire
and came out smiling.
"To get out there with over
100,000 people screaming and
make a play for your team, that's
the ultimate," Tebow said.

line that led to UF's game-winning
score.
"To put the ball in his hands
in that situation, that tells you the
kind of respect we have for that
guy," Meyer said.
Safety Reggie Nelson inter-
cepted the first pass of the game
from Vols quarterback Erik Ainge..
He then helped UF ice the game
by intercepting Ainge's final pass
of the game.
"I saw him wide open and I was
just like, 'Where is Reggie Lewis
at?'" Nelson said in reference to
the first interception. "I just had to
make up allthe ground."
UF got out to an early lead
when Leak connected with Jemalle
Cornelius for a 21-yard score in the
first quarter.
With UF leading 7-3 in the
second quarter, the Gators were
burned on a Tennessee trick play.
LaMarcus Coker took the ball on
end around, looked downfield and
found a wide-open Lucas Taylor
for a 48-yard touchdown pass, giv-


ing Tennessee its first lead.
After James' punt return was
called back, Leak threw an inter-
ception to Marvin Mitchell, who re-
turned into the end zone. However,
a roughing-the-passer penalty on
J.T. Mapu negated the play.
"That
... play kind of
killed us,"
^4 3 Tennessee
'- defensive
tackle Turk
McBride said. "But it's the game
of football, and things are going to
get called that you don't probably
agree with."
The Volunteers expanded their
lead to 17-7 but could not seal the
deal.
"Our whole focus was to come
in and show everyone that we
could win on the road and also 6r
prove it to ourselves," Baker said.
"So beating Tennessee on the road,
I feel we have a lot of momentum."
Said Meyer: "It does a lot for us.
To win a game like this someone
had to make a play, and we had
so many players who made those
kind of plays."

UF scales Rocky Top, poll


* UF REBOUNDED FROM A
10-POINT DEFICIT.

-By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Staff Writer
bjones@alligator.org

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. With
one final stretch of the chains,
UF's championship hopes were
preserved.
A dutch 6-yard first-down
run by tailback DeShawn Wynn
with 1:22 remaining sealed a 21-
20 come-from-behind victory for
the No. 5 Gators (3-0) against No.
13 Tennessee (2-1) at Neyland
Stadium on Saturday.
In a game the Volunteers hoped
would seal their return to glory, it
was the Gators instead emerging
into the national spotlight.
"That was one of the finest
team efforts I've ever seen," UF
coach Urban Meyer said.
The win propels UF into the
national championship race and
establishes the Gators as the
frontrunners in the Southeastern
Conference Eastern Division.
The Gators moved up from
No. 7 to No. 5 in the Associated
Press poll, jumping ahead of
Notre Dame and LSU, which lost
to Michigan and Auburn, respec-
tively.
With several other top teams,
including Florida State and
Oklahoma, falling Saturday, that
puts the Gators in elite company.
Perhaps more importantly, UF
might have finally developed the
mental toughness that Meyer had
desperately tride to instill since he
arrived in Gainesville.
It was the first time in the
Meyer era that the Gators defeated
a quality opponent on the road. UF
lost three of its four road games in
Meyer's first season at UF, defeat-
ing only Kentucky.
Quarterback Chris Leak threw
for 199 yards and three touch-
downs Saturday, while Wynn
rushed for a season-high 104
yards.
It was the first time a run-
ning back gained 100 yards
on Tennessee's defense since
Auburn's Cadillac Williams in
2004.
The Gators dominated the
line of scrimmage, out-rushing


Tennessee 121 to -11:
Wide receiver Dallas Baker
made up for the painful memories
of Neyland Stadium two years
ago when his controversial per-
sonal foul penalty helped lead to
Tennessee's game-winning field
goal.
Trailing 17-7, a Baker touch-
down catch with 1:16 remain-
ing in the third quarter brought
UP to within three points of the
Volunteers. And then with 6:30 left
of the last quarter, Baker reeled in
the game-winning touchdown.
"We needed this," Baker said.
"Our whole focus was to come in


here and show everyone we could
win on the road and to it prove to
ourselves.".
On another note, freshman
wide receiver Percy Harvin left the
game with a sprained ankle. The
injury is not thought to be serious,
Meyer said.
UF found a role for backup
quarterback Tim Tebow, using the
freshman in short-yardage situa-
tions. Tebow rushed seven times
for 29 yards, picking up several
first downs, including a crucial 4-
and-1 from the Tennessee 28-yard

Vintage Gators are back

KNOXVILLE, Tenn.
This was a covert road operation gone horribly right.
This was Coach Urban Meyer walking the tough team/
Pansy All-Stars tightrope before landing on the safe side, the
green side, the winning side.
This was Tim Tebow lowering shoulders and defying the laws of
logic that suggest a defense will adjust to five consecutive quarter-
back draws.
This was Reggie Nelson intercepting the first and last passes of
the game, book-ending UF's Knoxville evening with a nightcap not
even Jack Daniels himself could top.
Dallas Baker swung back, DeShawn Wynn stumbled ahead and
with one collective exhale, the Gators took their first step in truly
burying Ron Zook's ghost.
Southeastern Conference title contenders? No doubt. National
championship possibilities? You better believe it.
21-20. Finally. These guys are for real.
For the first time since 2002, Gator Nation does not have to worry
that a lack of discipline could cost UF games.
For the first time since Steve Spurrier's days, the Gators do not
have to fret about dropping a decision be-
cause of conservative play calling.
Need proof? Meyer's latest Dr. Evil
Genius play call proved something different
'is cooking in this broiler.
With 106,818 onlookers and the nearby
states of Kentucky, Georgia and North
Louis Carolina anticipating a Tebow run, Meyer
Anastasis boldly posed the challenge: Go ahead
tackle him.
Louis in the Bullpen Tebow bulldozed ahead for 2 yards on
lanthat 4-and-1 during the fourth quarter.
The Gators would follow with a 21-yard
Dallas Baker reception that punctuated a 10-point second half come-
back. What, UF mounting a road comeback?
Exactly.
These guys are different. Refreshing. Cool. Calculated.
Composed. Prepared.
Do you think Wynn picks up 6 yards and a critical late first down
two years ago?
(Remember that in the 2004 Knoxville game, Wynn dropped a
gimme touchdown pass while streaking up the sidelines).
Do you think UF's offensive line gives Chris Leak enough time to
find Cornelius Ingram for a crucial 38-yard reception last season?
(Recall that in 2005, Tennessee sacked the Gators five times;
Saturday it was just twice).
You are watching an old team grow young. You are witnessing
the state's lone rising program taking anchor in your own back-
yard.
Saturday, UF proved it has its best squad since a 2001 team that
was one Volunteers loss away from a potential national title.
Sure, the 2006 Gators barely defeated a depleted Vols team. But
when adrenaline kicked in on both sides late Saturday night, you
might as well have trashed the scouting reports.
Tennessee is always Tennessee, even if a little. And now, with
a character-building, come-from-behind victory, the Gators are the
Gators again, even if a little.
It's still early, but this is a top-five team, and a mature one at
that.
You will never wonder whether UF's defense will show up dur-
ing fourth quarters; only whether the Gators can last an entire season
without suffering injuries at linebacker or in the secondary.
You will never ask yourself about boneheaded penalties; just
whether UF has enough offensive line experience to take down the
likes of LSU and Auburn.
Percy Harvin must get healthy, the offense must kick
it into the next gear and the cornerbacks could be better.
Yet it is only from Rocky Top that you can see Atlanta, New Orleans
and on the dearest of Saturday nights Tempe, Ariz.
