GAINESVILLE HADN'T SEEN TOM PETTY IN-13 YEARS.
NO WONDER THE CROWD WOULDN'T BACK DOWN.

Petty, along with Heaftbreakers
Mike Campbell, Benmont Tench,
Ron Blair, Scott Thurston and Steve

at the Stephen C. O'Connell Center to
a sold-out crowd.

But Petty had not performed in
Gainesville in 13 years.
"What can I say?" Petty asked
the screaming crowd in between
hits "Mary Jane's Last Dance" and
"I Won't Back Down." "It's so great
to be here. I really feel like I've come
And the crowd was a good one:
The screeching guitar solos and au-
dience's screams could be heard from
across West University Avenue.
The show came in the midst of
the band's tour promoting Petty's
new album, "Highway Companion."
Concert tickets sold out less than 30
minutes after going on sale in July.
Hours before the concert and
just inside the O-Dome, Tom Petty
& the Heartbreakers were honored
with Gainesville's most prestigious
Gainesville Mayor Pegeen

President Bernie Machen's wife, paid
respects to Petty and the band.
"He truly embodies what it means

College of Law
By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Staff Writer
Wearing a pair of crocheted gloves, U.S. Supreme Court
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg shared memories of an old
friend and UF alumnus Thursday at a classroom-dedication
The Supreme Court's lone female justice traveled to
Gainesville to honor Chesterfield Smith, who graduated
from UF's law school in 1948 and eventually became presi-
dent of the American Bar Association. Smith died in 2003.
The Levin College of Law dedicated a new classroom,
which Ginsburg helped fund, to Smith in honor of his ac-
complishments as a lawyer. Smith founded the Holland &
Knight law firm, which is now one of the
largest in the country.
U.S. Supreme In a private speech before about 150
Court people, Ginsburg praised Smith as the
most "altogether irresistible lawyer I
have ever known."
Ginsburg and Smith first met during an ABA trip to
China in the 1970s. From then on, she said, he served as
her mentor and eventually testified at her Supreme Court
"He was never satisfied with the status quo if there was
room for improvement," she said.
Ginsburg spoke inside the new Chesterfield Smith
Ceremonial Classroom, which boasts wood paneling and
flat-screen televisions in its lobby.
Most of the people attending the event had donated
money toward the room, which cost about $500,000 to build
in Smith's name.
"May the classes and events that take place in this room
prove a fitting tribute to Chesterfield's work and days,"
Ginsburg said. "My affection for him was unbounded."
Martha Barnett, another former ABA president who
spoke at the event, said Smith frequently referred to his
friends as his "boys and babes."
"Chesterfield counted Justice Ginsburg as one of his
babes," Barnett told the crowd, "and I think she liked it,
The back of the classroom was adorned with photo-
graphs and other memorabilia from Smith's life. Audience
members donned buttons bearing an image of Smith's smil-
ing face and two of his favorite catchphrases.
"Be somebody! Do good!" the buttons read.
UF dignitaries at the ceremony included Provost Janie
Fouke and President Bernie Machen.
By dedicating the classroom to Smith, Machen said, UF
could place "one more piece into the foundation we are
building for the Gator Nation."
"He is a great example that comes to my mind when I
think of the power that is the Gator Nation," Machen said.
"This is a place where he belongs."

CLAS debt tensions culminate at faculty meeting
Machen says plan not his responsibility
By CHAD SMITH
UF President Bernie Machen refused to take re-
sponsibility Thursday afternoon for a controversial
budget plan, which aims to get the College of Liberal
Arts and Sciences on track after its $4 million debt.
At a meeting of UF's Faculty Senate, senators
voiced concerns about the plan and its lack of
"shared governance" the idea that administrators
and faculty should both contribute in the decision-
The five-year plan, approved by CLAS officials
earlier this month, calls for gradually reducing fac-
ulty and cutting funding for some programs.
However, the Senate voted down a resolution that
would have dissolved that plan in order for faculty
members to have more input in a new one.
After the meeting, Machen said, "We have to do
something, and I didn't hear any solutions today."
Machen said not enough faculty inptt was taken
into consideration when the plan was created, and he
added that he was not to blame for its content. But he
said a plan is urgently needed to avoid more debt.
"The implication of not doing something now
would put us in a deeper hole as we try to get out of
it," he said.
Senate Chairwoman Danaya Wright said the body
would review how money is distributed among UF's
16 colleges to determine sufficient funding.
Provost Janie Fouke said in an interview after the
meeting that the administration wants to see the debt
controlled, but she added that internal changes to the
plan are up to the colleges.
As Machen approached the lec-
tern, four people stood with their
backs to the presidentin protest.
Joe Little, a faculty senator and
law professor, said he was unsure
if the plan was right or wrong but
told the president he has to-"stand
', and take responsibility."
SSome senators thanked
Machen for attending the meeting,
but Little said it was the president's duty.
"I don't thank you for coming here," he said.
"That's your job."
The comment drew applause from the roughly 250
people who packed the Reitz Union Auditorium.
James Klausner, a faculty senator and engineering*
professor, said he was concerned that using univer-
sity money for CLAS would hurt other colleges.
As he stood before the Senate, Klausner said the
large audience attending the meeting indicated there
is "turmoil all over campus."
Protesters demand answers
By ELIZABETH HILLAKER
More than 150 students, faculty
members and staff gathered in front
of Tigert Hall on Thursday chanting
protests, brandishing colored signs
and pumping their fists in the air.
The crowd marched to the Reitz

"Anyone can grow up to be president," said the late,
great Johnny Carson. "And anyone who doesn't grow up
can be vice president." He wasn't talking about Student
Government, but he could have fooled us.
On Wednesday night, four candidates for SG's No. 2 job
squared off in a debate. Sort of. They didn't "debate" any "is-
sues," per se. They didn't have much of an audience either
- just an Alligator reporter and 30 color-coded cheerleaders
in party T-shirts. Pretty sad.
To be fair, they did have podiums. With microphones. Two
of them even wore ties. It all looked pretty official, so what the
hell well be generous and call it a debate. That sounds a lot
better than playing dress up.
We know, we know. It's easy to laugh at SG. Fun, too. But
that queasy feeling in the pit of your stomach that's the
realization that, starting next week, one of these jokers will
actually be in charge. Running SG's Cabinet. Spending your
That burning sensation when you pee? Yeah, you should
probably talk to a doctor about that.
Anyway, with SG eletions in just four short days, it's time
to meet the candidates. So come along with us on a special,
vice-presidential edition of...
First, we hurl a buy-your-own-Dom-Perignon DART at
Swamp candidate Arturo Armand, who had the chutzpah to
defend SG's lavish spending on its own awards banquet.
"There are a lot of people who put a lot of time into SG,"
he said and they deserve to kick back with some hookers
and cocaine. Or is it punch and sheet cake? We can't remem-
Either way, it's bad form for SG to live it up while the rest
of UF tightens its belt. Besides, Armand was supposed to
wring his hands, look pensive and promise to be more frugal.
And then buy a chocolate fountain anyway.
We expect nothing less from the party that brought you
or rather, didn't bring you cheaper cable and an SG-
sponsored book exchange.
Next, we toss a pot-calling-the-kettle-black DART at
Action candidate Chris Chase, who criticized Swamp's
wasteful spending with one breath and promised to build a
waterslide with the next. A waterslide! As if that's what UF
needs to move up in the world.
Then again, maybe Action's onto something. After all,
the University of Michigan never cracked the Top 10 until it
became "Six Flags presents the University of Michigan." So
why stop at a waterslide? We say bring on the roller coasters,
funnel cake and $6 bottles of water. Just don't complain when
your degree has "Action Party FunLand" printed on it.
Moving on, we flick a we-get-it-already DART at inde-
pendent candidate Nina DeJong, who says her campaign
"begins and ends with women."
Yeah, no kidding. DeJong might not have a position on
anything, but she does have something her opponents lack
a second X chromosome. It's all she ever talks about.
Here at the Alligator, we support women in SG. There
aren't enough of them, period. But if DeJong wants to make
SG more inclusive, she needs to do more than regurgitate
the same old junk. You know what we mean networking
with groups to assess needs and provide access. That stuff
just makes us want to shoot ourselves, coming from a man
or a woman.
Finally, we launch a get-serious DART at Pants candidate
Bruce Haupt, who showed up for Wednesday's debate look-
ing like a common bum off the street. No jacket, no tie, no
lapel pin what does he think this election is, some kind of
big joke? The nerve of some people.

SG election explained in 1999 movie
Ah, student elections can you feel the energy?
Century Tower is chiming "Canon in D Major," lit-
tered campaign fliers whip in the wind and, if you
listen closely, you can hear the ballot box whisper. "Come
on," it says. "Fill me up. Come on. Fill me up. Good job."
Choosing which party to support in this year's Student
Government election is simple: Don't pay attention to
platforms, don't accept fliers, don't even look at the bright,
fixed smiles of the party candidates.
All you need to make an accurate and responsible deci-
sion is a DVD player and a copy of the movie "Election."
-Of course, you could be normal and already know and
In "Election," three candidates compete to become
Carver High's student body president: Tracy Flick, Paul
Metzler and Tammy Metzler. This year's SG features three
parties: Action, Swamp and Pants. Following?
Let's begin with the Swamp Party. Metzler? You Betzler.
Paul Metzler is a jock on crutches. Fitting enough? Unable
to play for the football team, Metzler figures, why not run
for president and give something back to the school?
Like Swamp, Metzler counts on popular support.
Swamp has more candidates than any other party not
to mention its fraternity and sorority backing. All Swamp
needs now is a good campaign slogan. "Swamp Success,"
maybe. Or "Swamp for SG." What else sounds good with
Swamp? Sincere? Sensational? Scented Candle?
In fear of Paul's popular support, Tracy Flick hangs
posters, prints buttons and even bakes a batch of custom-
made "Pick Flick" cupcakes. Flick's obsessive determina-
tion to become president is matched only by the hilarity
of her inflated platform promises. Can you say Action
The Action platform includes an on-campus Moe's
Southwest Grill, a waterslide, free
student printing, buses to away
football games, entertainment for
tailgaters the list goes on and
on. Don't be surprised if Action
Todd Potnowitz hands you a stick of gum when
ToddPz you sign up to vote.
Witz's Wit The final party to consider is the
email@example.com less engaged Pants Party em-
bodied by Paul Metzler's younger
lesbian sister, Tammy Metzler.
Tammy runs to spite the two other candidates. Her plat-
form is the anti-platform. In a speech to the student body,
Tammy claims, "The only promise I will make is that if
elected, I will immediately dismantle the student govern-
ment,-so that none of us will ever have to sit through one
of these stupid assemblies again!"
Although they may not dismantle SG, the Pants Party
has a laid-back vision. They promise nothing, recogniz-
ing the fallibility of overblown platforms. Realist? Vote
Tammy Metzler. Vote Pants.
I must say I am drawn to the Pants Party. Recognizing
that SG political platforms are pointless is platform
enough for me. The one thing missing in all of politics,
both at a university and national level, is common sense.
Why not vote for the party that displays the most of it?
The moral is, don't let false promises or the fact that
Swamp wins every year affect your vote. Then again, you
could always follow Tammy Metzler's speech-closing ad-
vice: "Who cares? Don't vote at all."
Whatever you do, make a responsible decision this
year watch "Election."

Letters to the Editor
Horrors and small mercies of RTS
As a human being, I love the bus system.
There's always the chance of bumping into
an old friend or making a new one. But as
an art student, I abhor the buses. They're an
absolute nightmare when I'm transporting
supplies. It's tough to carry an armful of books
as well as a purse while clinging to jumbo-size
poster board and a toolbox.
Bumping into friends is no longer amus-
ing when each tap results in damage to my
project which must be pristine or it drops a
letter grade. On top of all that, there is stand-
ing room only. But my hands are so full I can't
hang onto anything, and I begin to stumble as
the bus lurches forward. Then, a moment of
grace appears in the form of someone who
thinks I am absolutely pitiful and offers me his
seat. Small kindnesses are the only things that
make the Regional Transit System bearable.
Get over yourselves, Merit Scholars
After reading Patrick Barretts Thursday
column regarding National Merit Scholars, I
was furious. First of all, if Barrett is a National
Merit Scholar, the decision to decrease merit
awards will not affect him in any way. He will
still receive more than $5,000 a year for "being
a good test taker."
For Barrett to state that National Merit
Scholars are the dedicated students, the ones
that enrich "class discussion significantly by
thoughtful and stimulating observation" is a
gross generalization. National Merit Scholars
do not have a monopoly on academic achieve-
Going to a high school that produced more
than 25 National Merit Finalists a year taught
me a couple of things. First, the best students
were not always National Merit Finalists.
Second, the National Merit Finalists were not
always the best students.
UF President Bernie Machen is finally real-
izing that just because students can take one
test well, put down UF as their first choice and
write an essay, they are not necessarily worthy
of thousands of dollars a year. I believe that
the cut in National Merit Scholarships will al-
low UF to award other amazing students. It's
about time UF opened its eyes.
Students benefit from SG budget
I read "Senate OKs Largest Budget in SG
History" and Thursday's editorial on the same
matter with disgust. The Alligator has-once
again managed to mislead the student body
into thinking that Student Government is not
doing its job.
Both articles were misleading in the sense
that they did not explain what the SG budget
is and what factors determine it. Each student
pays an Activity & Service Fee per credit hour
- one of four local fees tacked on to tuition -
and the money is allocated by SG for services
and activities for the student body. The reason
this year's budget is the highest is because
each year the number of credit hours taken by
the student body continues to grow. Until this
growth stops, each year's budget will be the
Who benefits from the spending, you ask?
If you go to any of the on-campus gyms, par-
ticipate in intramural sports, go to the Reitz
Union, participate in any SG-funded organiza-
tion or go to Lake Wauburg, you are benefiting
from SG spending.
But the Alligator doesn't want to write
stories about that. No one wants to read about
how UF has the most fiscally responsible SG of
Florida's 11 state universities.
Student Senate president
Top 10 school means research school
I couldn't help but chuckle as I read
Sam Baglier's Wednesday letter regarding
budget cuts in the College of Liberal Arts
and Sciences. I think there is a misunder-
standing across campus about what it
actually means to be a Top 10 university
in this country. I am a CLAS student and I
do have issues with some of the decisions
being made, but we have to recognize that
a Top 10 university really means a research
The best way to accomplish UF President
Bernie Machen's goals is to provide bet-
ter facilities. Unfortunately, I don't mean
a better library. I'm talking about facilities
for agriculture, the sciences, engineering
and the medical school. Regrettably, this
does not leave CLAS in the best position
to negotiate for better funding. But that is
something we have to be aware of whether
we agree with it or not.
Standardized tests fair for admissions
In a letter in Wednesday's Alligator, Kelli
Wood argued in favor of equal opportunity
for college admission without regard to so-
cioeconomic status or testing. I applaud this
noble notion but disagree.
First, Advanced Placement and
International Baccalaureate programs are
free, based on merit, and often bus less-ad-
vantaged students to their schools if they
don't live in the nearby area.
Being in these programs is not based on
luck, but on hard work. The assertion that
they are only available to the wealthy is
Second, testing is a popular method for
establishing merit in various institutions.
Because they show merit as objectively as
possible, without regard to race or social sta-
tus, tests are great markers of at least some
ability to learn.
I think universities should focus more on
the ability to write and reason as a selection

Gators catch break, waves
By JOSH ARMSTRONG
To get a Hawaii trip out
of her system, Rhian Davis
headed to of all places
- the beach.
On Thursday, she and the
rest of the No. 10 UF volleyball
teamr,(9-2, 2-1 Southeastern
Conference) took their first
day off since returning from
a Honolulu tournament three
"It was pretty grueling,"
Davis, a senior libero, said en
route to St. Augustine. "I was
talking to [junior outside hit-
ter Marcie Hampton] the other
night, and I was saying, 'You
know, I don't think Hawaii's
out of me yet.'"
During the past three
weeks, the Gators have played
six matches in 12 days.
Three of those were on the
"That's a brutal schedule,"
UF coach Mary Wise said.
"The day off didn't come too
soon at all." .
The Gators return to prac-
tice today as they prepare for
an Alabama match Sunday at
1:30 p.m. But can one day of
rest rejuvenate a weary team?
"One day, and we're re-
freshed," Davis said. "We'll go
into practice [Friday] feeling
like we haven't played vol-
leyball in forever, even though
it's been less than
/to r, 24hours."
Volleyball Hampton said
the Gators defi-
nitely needed the
break, but it will hardly get
their minds off the game.
"It really sticks with you -
especially coming off of a loss
or if we really didn't play so
well it's kind of hard to get
over," she said. "We probably
need a mental break every
now and then, but volleyball's
such a big part of our lives, it
affects everything we do."
Davis needs all the rest she
can get. She will play twice
as much while starting libero
Elyse Cusack is out with a
stress fracture in her left foot.
Cusack's absence leaves a
large hole in UF's back row.
Her 5.81 digs per game are
17th in the nation. Hampton is
second on the team with 3.31.
Wise said UF is still tweak-
ing with its rotation to find
the right combination to fill
"We're trying to use depth
in the places where we have
depth," she said.
Already somewhat out
of her natural position, ju-
nior middle blocker Kisya
Killingsworth is playing more
rotations as a passer.
That takes some of the
pressure off Davis, but- she
knows UF needs a solid libero
"We've had Kisya come in
and play the back row. It's not
too hard to ask of her," Davis
said. "It's not too hard to ask
of me to play six rotations in-
stead of the usual three."

the fact that nobody has posted a

In fact, members voiced their dis-
dain for their football coach for only
two months before they shut it down.
Possible reasons for apathy toward

Tony Delk, Antoine Walker and

Kentucky has a football team?
Regardless, we at the alligatorS-'

to get Kentucky's side of the story, so
we went on a quest to interview the
founder of firerichbrooks.com.
However, doing little to quell ru-
mors that Kentuckians cannot read,
write or do their taxes, the Web site
ignored a flurry of e-mails directed
to its only listed avenue of contact:
Hint, hint: send them as much
spam as you want.
Anyway, although the Web site is
more outdated than Urban Meyer's
honesty, it still is good for a laugh
For example, it is quick to point out
the following question and answers:
Q: What does $725,000 a year buy?
A: Higher ticket prices (someone
has to pay), a 28-16 loss to Ohio in
2004, a 28-17 loss to Vanderbilt in 2003
and a 116th-ranked offense.
Why all the animosity and bel-
ligerence? In his first three years at
Kentucky's helm, Brooks won a com-
bined nine games. So perhaps fans are
currently dazed by his 2-1 start.

Meyer tight-lipped on Thomas' appeal
By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
Marcus Thomas' future with
the Gators remains in limbo as
Coach Urban Meyer refused
Thursday to discuss the senior de-
fensive tackle's status or announce
a definite suspension.
When asked if anything had
come of Thomas' appeal, Meyer
replied with a blunt, "No, no

And when asked if Thomas

At the minimum, UF's pre-
mier pass-rusher will miss games
against Kentucky and Alabama.
However, UF athletics director
Jeremy Foley could elect to uphold
the tackle's appeal in order to have
him play against LSU, Auburn
and Georgia. If Thomas does miss
that stretch, UF's chances of com-
peting for conference and national
championships will be in serious
Wednesday, Meyer suspended
Thomas indefinitely for report-
edly testing positive for marijuana
for the second time this season.
However, Thomas met with
school officials soon thereafter to
discuss an appeal.
UF's policy is to suspend an
athlete for 50 percent of his or her
season following a second sub-
stance abuse violation. However,
Thomas reportedly has argued the
school did not give him enough
time to rid himself of the mari-
juana that caused him to fail the
first test and consequently miss
the season opener.
Foley can minimize the sus-
pension if he feels Thomas has
presented a strong rebuttal.
To cope with Thomas' absence,
the Gators will give substantial
playing time to a lineman who
missed most of spring camp be-
cause of poor grades and a fallout
stemming from fathering three
Redshirt senior Steven Harris

Ray McDonald will play most-
ly at tackle with Joe Cohen while
Jarvis Moss and Derrick Harvey
will see most of the snaps at end.
"Somebody withMarcus' talent
and experience definitely brings a
lot more to the table," Moss said.
"But at the same time, Ray is just
as quality of a player. And then I
have full confidence in Harvey be-
cause he's basically been as good
as a starter. We still got players out
there on the board."
HARVIN QUESTIONABLE: Despite
the fact that freshman receiver
Percy Harvin has not practiced all
week, Meyer still hopes he will be
able to play against Kentucky.
"A lot of people say you don't
play if you don't practice Tuesday
or Wednesday. I don't have that
rule," Meyer said. "If you're
healthy, you're going to play if
you're a football player. We'll

Against Tennessee, the Gators

Overlooked James producing big results as returned
By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
There wasn't much room in St. Johns
County for St. Augustine High running back
In a county where the quarterback broke
nearly every Florida high school passing re-
cord, a 5-foot, 6 1/2-inch running back tried to
make a name for himself.
UF coach Meyer, a first-year coach at the
time, overlooked James because of his height.
It took convincing from both UF co-de-
fensive coordinator Greg Mattison and St.
Augustine High coach Joey Wiles to get James
into a Gators uniform.
First, Wiles worked on Mattison.
Wiles realized that James' height played a
role in the recruiting process, but also knew
that his player's athletic ability would over-
come the size issue.
"The thing I probably tried to sell
[Mattison] the most on was Brandon could
commit to being the return guy both kickoff
and punt," Wiles said. "Brandon could play
the running back position, slot and he could
play comer. He was a great enough athlete to
While Mattison recruited James' half-
brother and teammate, UF corerback Jacques
Rickerson, Wiles kept bringing up James.
"Every time I talked to Joey about Jacques,
he'd go, 'Brandon's really good coach. He's re-
ally good,' and I respect Joey Wiles." Mattison
said. "I said, 'You really believe he can play

here and help us win a national champion-
ship?' And he says, 'Without a doubt.' I said
get us the film."
Mattison then approached Meyer, told the
UF coach if he didn't offer James, he would
lose out on a "really, really good kid."
Meyer asked Mattison if he really believed
in James, and Mattison replied by saying "I re-
ally think this is what we're looking for."
Meyer didn't need any more proof.
He asked to get James on the phone.
On Nov. 28, James committed to UF.
"His high school coach was right. Greg
Mattison was right," Meyer said. "I [had]
questioned them, I [had] challenged them."
At Tennessee last Saturday, James nearly
scored two return touchdowns.
He settled for the longest UF punt return
in 50 games.
After an impressive preseason and a break-
out road game there's no question James
"Certain guysyouliketo coach and certain
guys you don't but that guy is unbelievable,"
Mever said "He's an elite lifter, he's a com-
petitor. he s a special guy. I'm just jacked to
"During the whole recruiting process my
size was a big factor," said James, who is listed
as 5-foot-7. "Coach Mattison was there from
day one, just saying they could really use me
here. Coach Meyer said I needed to keep it up
each game week in and week out, and that's
what I tried to do."
And that's just what he did.
In his final prep season, James ran for 1,305
yards and 17 touchdowns as the speed back
in a multi-pronged rushing attack, leading St.,
Augustine to the Class 3A state champion-
More importantly for UF, James also had
two returns for touchdowns.
"My whole career I was hearing I wasn't
going to be big enough to play at the big col-
leges because of my size," said James, who
also considered South

With a big win against Tennessee directly behind them and some
very key games lurking ahead, the No. 5 Gators' (3-0) biggest chal-

UF coach Urban Meyer said he doesn't expect motivation to be a
problem against the Wildcats.

The part of Kentucky's game that Meyer is most concerned about is
not the offensive nor the defensive but the special teams.
"I think they have the best kick return scheme in the country in
my 20 years of being involved in the kicking game," he said. "Their
kickoff return team and punt return team is dynamic, and they are as
good as there is."
Burton is averaging 34.7 yards per kickoff return this season, in-
cluding a 100-yard score against Louisville. Kentucky's punt returned,
Rafael Little, is averaging more than 23 yards per punt return.
"I think we have a huge commitment to special teams," Brooks
said. "I think that this is a way for us as a football program to hope-
fully gain an advantage on some teams."
Little, however, has a knee injury and is questionable for Saturday's
"He pretty much was our offense a year ago," Brooks said. "Now
we have more weapons this year thank God but he is still a ma-
jor part of it."
The Gators will be without defensive tackle Marcus Thomas, who
was suspended indefinitely earlier this week.
Meyer has yet to announce whether Thomas' appeal for a less
stringent suspension will be granted.
Also, the Gators might not have the services of receiver Percy
Harvin, who has yet to practice all week.
"He's a guy who's not going to go 50 plays but he's a guy that can
go 10 to 20 plays," Meyer said.
One of the other weapons Brooks spoke of is quarterback Andre'

fond memories of Kentucky.
In his first career start three seasons ago, the Gators trailed
Kentucky 21-3 in the fourth quarter. Leak, just a freshman at the time,
made a promise to his receivers that he would lead UF to victory, and
the Gators pulled out a 24-21 victory.
The game cemented Leak's status as a starter and inspired confi-
dence from his teammates.
Last season, Leak passed for 319 yards and four touchdowns
against the Wildcats in perhaps the best performance the UF offense
put up all last season. The Gators scared 49 points in th first half.
"I remember it very well," UF linebacker Brandon Siler said. "They
took me out by halftime."
