Rolling death warrant stirs hope, memories
* FAMILIES LOOK TO EXECUTION FOR CLOSURE,
WHILE MANY STUDENTS ARE UNAWARE.
By DOMINICK E. TAO
Danny Rolling, the serial killer who murdered five college
students and ignited a frenzy of panic in Gainesville 16 years
ago, will be put to death in October, according to a death war-
rant signed by Gov. Jeb Bush on Friday.
Rolling, 52, is scheduled to die by lethal injection on Oct. 25
at 6 p.m. His last appeal was denied in June, and the governor
refused him clemency.
For Ricky Paules, the wait up to Rolling's
execution day is just "one of many roads"
she has faced since he killed her daughter,
Tracy Paules, 23, of Palm Springs.
"This road is next to the last one," Paules
The first began at the start of Fall se-
mester, 1990, when Rolling killed five UF
Rolling and SFCC students in their apartments. He
either invaded their residences or hid inside, waiting for them.
Four of his victims were dark-haired young women; the other
was one of their male roommates.
To kill, Rolling used a knife. Before stabbing three of his
victims to death, he raped them. Rolling decapitated one of his
victims, posing her head near the apartment's front door for
friends or police to discover.
Rollings' other victims were Christa Hoyt, 19, of Archer;
Sonja Larson, 18, of Deerfield Beach; Christina Powell, 17, of
Jacksonville; and Manuel Taboada, 23, of Miami. '
Gainesville Police Sgt. Ray Barber a 35-year-old patrol-
man in 1990 was the officer who discovered Rolling's first
victims at the Williamsburg Village Apartments on Aug. 26.
"There were two girls dead in the apartment," he said in an
interview Saturday. "It was hard and dirty."
As more bodies were discovered in the next tw6 days,
Barber said fear engulfed the city.

UF quarterback Chris Leak gets sacked during the first quarter of the Gators' 26-7 win against Kentucky
on Saturday night. Leak finished the game 15-of-26 passing for 267 yards and two touchdowns.
No, but in Gainesville, a 26-7
win against a heavily overmatched
team is almost just as bad.
UF was favored to win by more
than 25 points, but the Gators
seemed to take pointers from a
Georgia team that narrowly de-
feated Colorado at home earlier
during the day.
"We were totally out of sync,"
Coach Urban Meyer said.
Save for a brilliant trick play
and some Tim Tebow heroics, UF
(4-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference)
sputtered offensively. Its defense
was decent, but not spectacular.
Meyer blamed the poor outing
"We didn't play well because
we didn't practice well on Tuesday,
and that's on me," said Meyer,
who had his team practice indoors
Tuesday because of rain.
But UF's night did not start
so gloomy. Leak brought 90,292
people to their feet early in the first
quarter by orchestrating an end-
around flea-flicker touchdown,
easily the most exciting trick play
of Meyer's UF tenure.
Leak flipped the ball to Andre
Caldwell, who tossed it to Dallas
Baker Baker then lateraled the
football back to Leak. By now, con-
fused and disorganized, a defense-
less Kentucky defense watched UF
bomb a 33-yard touchdown to a
wide-open Jemalle Cornelius.
However, the Gators did little
the rest of the first half.
"Our offense I never felt got
into a rhythm, and we didn't have
enough plays in the first half,"
"Our offense I never felt

Then, in the third quarter,
things got interesting.
Tim Tebow, the superhuman,
freshman quarterback, recorded
62 yards on his first three runs of
"He's a spark plug," Meyer
said. "It kind of fires me up."
Tebow also started a red zone
drive during the fourth quarter.
But when Meyer reinserted Leak
during that same drive, home fans
went ballistic. They booed Leak
and begged for Tebow to re-enter
the game. After the game, Leak
downplayed the reaction.
The starter completed 15 of 26
passes for 267 yards, two touch-
downs and one interception. He
also quietly broke Shane Matthews
school record for career comple-
tions and now has 733. Tebow
rushed for 73 yards on six carries
and completed 1 of 2 passes for 12

self as one of the nation's premier
wide receivers. He caught seven

BSU gets out the vote
About 200 students gath-
ered Friday night to take
part in the Blaclk Card Voter
Registration Rally on the Reitz
The event, co-sponsored by
the Black Student Union and
Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity
Inc., was held to promote voter
registration among students.
Entertainment served to at-
tract people to the event and
included dance contests, magic
and improvisation shows, and
a performance from BSU dance
troupe Shades of Unity.
The annual rally started
two years ago in response to
the low voter turnout in the
2004 elections, said Antonia
Robinson, BSU spokeswoman.
More than 100.students regis-
tered to vote during this year's

Eagle Scout aids lost pets
A local boy organized a
pet microchip fair Saturday to
encourage people to implant
identification microchips in
their animals and to coim-
plete his Eagle Scout project.
Alexander Johnson, 15,
came up with .the idea after
talking with Ray Sim, direc-
tor of Alachua County Animal
Services: With his help, 30 pets
were chipped at the Tractor
Supply Co. in Jonesville from
9 a.m. to noon.
The $30 process involves
injecting a microchip about
the size of a grain of rice into
the tissue in between the skin
and the muscle.
Each chip has a specific
identification number that,
when read with a scanner, can
trace the pet to its owner.
Janine--Boyd, of Alachua,
brought her Labrador, Lilly Joy,
because she had to come-into
the store to buy supplies and
wanted to get Lilly Joy-tagged
with a chip anyway.
Susan Pethes, the surgery
technician from Alachua County
Animal Services who implanted
the microchips, said they im-
planted chips in as many pets
Saturday as they usually do in
an entire week. Pethes said it
is especially important .to have
pets tagged before hurricane
Last year alone thousands of
pets were lost because the find-
ers couldn't identify them.

mal is part of your family," pet
owner Kelley Richardson said.

Governor candidate Davis tailgates with Gators

football, a smaller group of stu-

different sort of arrival.

Jim Davis, the 2006 Democratic
gubernatorial candidate, arrived at
the on-campus barbecue around 4:
30 p.m. to shake hands with stu-
dents and supporters and share his
vision for the state.
Davis' brief stop in Gainesville
was sandwiched between an earlier
visit to Pensacola and a trip to his
next destination, Ormond Beach.
"I know I'm going to sound like
your mom and dad, but I remember
like it was yesterday when I was in
your shoes," Davis said, addressing
a crowd of about 30 supporters.
Davis enumerated the statewide
changes he hopes to make if elected
in November, saying he plans to

fight for need-based financial aid
programs for college students,
affordable housing and a govem-
ment that caters to all Floridians.
"We believe in you, and there is
nothing nothing we can't do if
we stand together," Davis said.
He told supporters that many
young people have given up on
government because of politicians'
endless false promises and catering
to special interest groups.
"The hardest part isn't winning
the election," Davis said. "The hard
part is after we win because I want
you to serve with me. I am looking
for the next generation of leaders."
Self-described as a steadfast
Democrat but a Floridian first and
foremost, Davis earned a bachelor's
degree from Washington and Lee
University and graduated from
UF's Levin College of Law.
"We were really excited when
we found out that Jim would be
able to make it to the tailgate,"
said sophomore Will Anderson,
president of UF's Gators for Davis
organization. "We thought it would
be a good way to introduce our can-
didate to members and supporters
on a personal basis."
The club's treasurer, Marianna
Tuninskaya, said she has been a
Davis supporter since she heard
Davis speak last year.
"Many politicians tend to
look down on college students,
but Jim really seemed to take our
opinions into consideration," said
Tuninskaya, a Russian and English
senior. "He really wants to make a
difference instead of pursuing the
office for the power or prestige."

Herbalist offers alternative cures
ETHE COMMON COLD, WOUNDS AND SPIRIT ALL
HEALED BY PLANTS, SEMINAR LEADER SAYS.
By NICOLE CARDASSI
Alligator Contributing Writer
The statement that there is no cure for the common cold is a
myth, a local herbalist said at a seminar Saturday.
"Herbs are so powerful they canf cure the common cold,"
said Barbara Parker, a clinical herbalist certified inboth Western
and Chinese herbology. "They have the power to heal."
Saturday morning atAngel Gardens, a local gardening store,
Parker explained how to create a healing garden consisting of
natural herbs used to strengthen people's immune systems.
A small group of women sat in front of her during the semi-
nar, taking notes on how to handle and store the herbs.
Each herb has many naturally occurring chemicals that have
the ability to cure illness and promote health, Parker said.
"Unlike antibiotics and prescriptions, herbs will not weaken
you," she said. "Instead, if you -make a habit of taking them
consistently, over time you will strengthen yourself.".
However, herbs' active chemicals are destroyed by harsh
light and heat. When Parker first moved to Florida, she at-
tended an herb festival where there was a person selling herbs
in clear glass jars while the sun harshly beat down on them.
"There was nothing in that jar but dust," she said. "That is
what gives herbal healing a bad reputation. People will take an
herb with good intentions, but it will be worthless, and they
will say, 'That's a crock I tried that, and it didn't work!'"
When Parker explained how to care for the herbs, some
techniques resembled human habits.
"Herbs just love to be cut," she said. "If you give it that little
haircut once a week, it will grow back that much for you."
SHerbs also love to be smelled, rubbed, touched and used,
she said as she rubbed the pineapple mint herb on the table,
releasing an overwhelming sent of mint. The only way they can
fulfill their purpose on earth is to be beat up, she said.
"They are little powerhouses."
"They are little powerhouses," she said.
Parker explained how to make herbal teas, use herbs in dif-
ferent methods of cooking and also how to use them as inhal-
ants. She also mentioned using them to heal wounds by taking
the leaf of the herb, adding water to it, folding it up and apply-
ing it to a wound. The wound will then heal rapidly, she said.
Rebecca Alter, a former labor and delivery nurse at Shands,
said she didn't like working in an "unnatural" environment.
"It's amazing how they can take everything natural out of
childbirth," Alter said
She is now a stay-at-home mother and has two small chil-
dren. She attended the class to see if there were any other alter-
natives, and she plans to use many of the herbal treatments she
learned from Parker.
"Planting yourself an herbal healing garden and under-
standing how to use that garden for healing purposes is going
to be one of the best things you've done for yourself," Parker

Alligator picks DeJong for
A t UF, Student Government follows a familiar pattern.
Here's how it works.
Every year, under the watchful eye of Florida Blue
Key, the Greeks put together a slate. Each house contributes one
candidate. In an orgy of civic-mindedness and totally unco-
erced, of course every last member of Kappa Phi Whatever
shows up to vote. The Greeks win. Then they divvy up the
spoils. Accent goes to Alpha Epsilon Pi. Theta Chi gets Student
Government Productions. Delta Delta Delta takes Museum
Nights. And so on. Year after year, the same houses some-
times even the same people control the same agencies and
Cabinets. Its like clockwork.
But this year, one Greek is standing up to the status quo. Her
name is Nina Dejong, she's an independent and she's running
for Student Body vice president. She gets our vote. Why? It's
simple. No one else can do what she can for SG.
Unlike Chris Chase, the Action candidate, Dejong can tame
SG's sprawling Cabinet. Unlike Arturo Armand, the Swamp
candidate, she has no ties to the Greek machine. She owes no
favors and promises no positions. If she wins, Dejong will
speak only for herself and for the ordinary students who put
her in office.
In other words, she can manage the Cabinet with one thing
in mind efficiency instead of defending Swamp's every
little rice bowl. DeJong promises to demand accountability and
cut dead wood, and we applaud her for it. SG could certainly
use a little discipline.
Besides, it's nice to see a Greek a sorority president, in fact
- who won't do as she's told. After all, Greeks are people too.
They should vote as they please, Florida Blue Key be damned.
If more of them followed Dejong's example, UF might finally
have an SG it could be proud of.
No pick for Senate
Here at the Alligator,
And a little scared. Why,
you ask? Well, with the ad-
ministration dragging UF
down the road to the Top 10,
kicking and screaming, the
student body faces some big
We're talking about
tuition hikes, of course.
Scholarship cuts too. Oh,
and don't forget the faculty
hiring freeze in the College
of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
We hate to sound like a bro-
ken record, but this is impor-
tant stuff. The student body
should have its say.
Unfortunately, none of
the parties in this week's
Student Government elec-
tion seems to take these is-
sues seriously. Sure, Swamp
wants "fair tuition," but that
could mean anything. We
asked the Swamp brain trust
to clarify its position, and all
they gave us was more slick
Action's candidates are
no better. They'd rather
promise you waterslides,
free blue books or Moe's
Southwest Grill than take a
stand on university policy.
Don't get us wrong wa-
terslides are fun, free stuff is
cool and Moe's is delicious.
But SG has bigger fish to fry.
And Pants? Three words:
And so, with a heavy
heart, the Alligator endorses
no party in this week's
Student Senate elections.
We just hope that whoever
wins is willing to grow up
and talk about something
that actually matters. Happy

Get up and vote if you care about UF
In the book of 2 Kings, the prophet Isaiah says to
Hezekiah, "The days are coming when all that is in
your house, and that which your fathers have stored
up to this day, shall be carried to Babylon. Nothing shall
The king's sons will be taken away, enslaved as eu-'
nuchs at a foreign king's court. Pretty scary, right?
But Hezekiah responds, "The word of the Lord that
you have spoken is good."
Why? Because Hezekiah thinks, "There will be peace
and security in my days."
Don't worry you don't need a religious bone in your
body to understand the point I'm making here. I began
with a biblical quote to immediately impress upon you the
importance of this issue.
Did you catch the pathetic, despicable words of
Hezekiah? He was told that all his family's possessions
would be plundered and his own sons made eunuchs. Yet
he was fine with it. Why? Because he would be dead and
gone before any of these things would.come to pass. Read
it again. How reprehensibly selfish!
But then again, I suppose I shouldn't be too hasty in
demonizing the man for his selfishness. After all, most UF
students myself included look at our time here the
Just think about what's happening now. The College
of Liberal Arts and Sciences, UF's largest college, is fac-
ing huge budget cuts. Our professors expect and demand
less and less of us every semester. The administration
tells National Merit scholars, "Don't think you're any
more valuable to this university just because you work
UF's changing, in other words and not necessarily
The Liles Files
for the better. So by all means, rel-
ish how great it is to be here. Just
make sure to apologize to future
students for letting UF go to pot
on your watch.
You might think students aren't
responsible for trying to prevent
UF's deterioration. But how can
we, like Hezekiah, ignore the news
of our impending destruction?
This is our school. If we don't look
out for it, who will? But what can we do, you ask? Plenty.
First, stop telling yourself that the circumstances aren't
that bad or that you're powerless to change them. That
is the voice of laziness, and it is false. Now think about
those things that endanger the overall quality of UF. It
could be tuition hikes, the CLAS budget, scholarship cuts
or Student Government. Then, once you've identified the
problem, attack it head-on.
Most immediately, please vote in the SG elections
Tuesday and Wednesday.
This year, SG will spend its largest operating budget
yet more than $12 million. So please don't pretend this
election doesn't matter. Whoever you think will spend
that money wisely deserves your vote. So get off your
couch this week and make yourself heard.
But don't stop there. In the coming weeks and months,
make sure the party you voted for or didn't vote for, as
the case may be is spending your money wisely. If you
can't do that, start rehearsing this line: "Believe it or not,
UF used to be a really good school."

Hillel celebrates New Year
Hillel celebrates New Year
By ALEX TIEGEN
The smell of spicy fish, stew, fresh apples
and pomegranate seeds wafted from Hillel
Jewish student center Friday as Jewish stu-
dents and community members gathered to
celebrate their New Year.
The holiday began Friday night and end-
ed Sunday. In Jewish belief, Rosh Hashana
celebrates the anniversary of God's creation
of the world.
"Even though it is a very serious day,
it's also a very happy day," said Jonathan
Siger, Hillel's rabbi. "It's the birthday of the
To bring forth a sweet and prosperous
New Year, students poured honey over
pieces of glistening fruit. Hillel served
round foods apples, prunes, eggs and
pomegranate seeds that symbolized
The Jewish center hosted services for
Sephardic Jews, whose roots trace back
to Spain, Portugal and the Middle East.
Across University Avenue, the Reitz Union
welcomed Ashkenazic Jews, who come
from Russia and eastern Europe.
Among burning candles in the Union's
Grand Ballroom, a rabbi and a cantor led
men wearing skullcaps and women wear-
ing shawls in traditional Hebrew prayers.
On Hillel's second floor, a smaller con-
gregation of Sephardic Jews held their own
A divider etched with Jewish symbols
separated men and women of the Sephardic
congregation. A chanting cantor led the au-
dience in song and prayer.
"Even though it is a very serious
day, it's also a very happy day."
Sephardic Jews celebrate the New Year
with different songs and spicier foods than
Ashkenazic Jews. But both communities
attribute the same meaning to the holiday
and say many of the same prayers, such as
the Kaddish, the mourners' prayer.
Besides commemorating the creation of
the world, Rosh Hashana is a day when
Jews believe God judges his creation. Rosh
Hashana is one of the Jewish High Holy
"What we're doing really is we're com-
pleting the world," said Yonah Schiller, a
Sephardic rabbi who conducted services
On Saturday, a longer service was held
at Hillel. The shofar, an instrument made
of ram or sheep horn, called people to wor-
ship for the day's service. The shofar is also
meant to awaken the listener and alert him
or her to the coming judgment.
Fast begins for Muslims
By ALEX TIEGEN
When Shane Kanani heard the call
to prayer that ended the first day of
fasting for Ramadan, his stomach .was
empty but his mind was at peace.
Though he was dehydrated, the newly
converted Muslim found reservoirs
of energy that helped him look inside
"People who saw me were like,
'Are you okay?'" he said. "I was deep
in thought. It was almost like I was
Still, Kanani was grateful for the
first bite of date that ended the day's
Kanani, a UF biochemistry junior,
joined other students and Gainesville
residents celebrating the first day of
Ramadan, the holiest month of the
Muslim calendar, at the Islamic Center
of Gainesville on Saturday.
Muslims older than 13 may not-
drink or eat between sunrise and
sunset during Ramadan. Fasting for
Ramadan is one of the five pillars of
Islam, the central tenets of the religion.
Muslim men kneeled on the floor
of the center and nibbled on dates to
satisfy their hunger as a muezzin sang
the nightly callto prayer that ended the
day's fast on Saturday.
Worshippers lined up in rows and
echoed a cleric's chants and songs.
Bowing their heads to the floor, men
muttered praises to God. They then
feasted on a meal of rice mixed with
potatoes and beef. On the floor above
the male worshippers, Muslim women
held their own ceremonies and broke
their fast together.
Islam on Campus member Sakil
Hossain said fasting helps him empha-
thize with people too poor to eat.
"You try to feel what
Student they go through from
Life day to day," Hossain said.
"It encourages you to be
more proactive in trying to help people
in those situations."
Kanani, who was fasting for the first
time, had a bagel, an apple, yogurt and
an iced tea early that morning. He felt
water only when he rinsed his mouth
and washed his face. He was "starv-
ing" by the time he broke his fast.
"I'm learning slowly what to eat in
the morning so that I can keep going,"
Hossain said Ramadan strengthens
"You're holding yourself up to a
higher standard," he said.

UF disappoints in Daytona
By ALDEN GONZALEZ
The Gators spent their weekend playing on
the site of the 2007 NCAA Championships.
Yet the UF women's golf team hardly
played like champions.
The Gators finished eighth in a Daytona
Fall Preview tournament that featured 17
teams in Golf Stat's top-25.
UF-shot an 895 (31 over) and knotted up
Tennessee in the No. 8 spot. The Gators ended
26 strokes behind first-place Georgia, who fin-
ished with an 869 (5 over).
"I feel like we could've played much
better," Coach Jill Briles-Hinton said. "But
Georgia is a great team, and after this tourna-
ment, they'll probably be the heads-on favorite
to win it all."
Junior Sandra Gal led the way once again
for the Gators. She notched her second top-10
finish of the season with a 217 (1 over) as she
tied for seventh.
Making their first starts of the season were
sophomore Mallory Blackwelder and junior
Blackwelder who was exempt from the
first tournament for precautionary injury rea-
sons finished with an eight over (224) and
tied for 29th.
Myers finished just one stroke behind her
and tied for 36th.
"I feel like [Myers and Blackwelder] played
.great," Briles-Hinton said. "Obviously, you
can always do a better job of chipping and
hitting your greens, but they were able to stay
competitive throughout the tournament."
Despite the end result,
the Gators improved after
every round. After shoot-
ing a 17-over 305 in the
first, they improved by five
strokes the next day.
Then, on Sunday, the
Gators shot their best
Gal round since March 11. They
capped off the tournament
with a 2-over-par finish and moved up three
spots on the leader board. Briles-Hinton hopes
this momentum will carry over into the next
tournament 19 days from now.
"I know we can build on this," she said.
"We have a very talented team with lots of
players that are capable of shooting low scores.
It's just a matter of getting some consistency."
The women's golf team will travel to
Knoxville, Tenn. on Oct. 13, when the Gators
take part in the Mercedes-Benz Classic.

OUT LOUD, from page 20
consecutive times for 62 yards in the third quarter, Leak
was already feeling the pressure.
On Leak's next play, he scampered out of the pocket on
a designed run but was hit hard and stuffed for no gain.
Noticeably flustered, it looked as if he felt like he had to
throw a touchdown pass on that drive to keep the trust of
the fans. His first pass into the end zone dropped a 5
yards from any receiver, while his second floated into the
hands of Kentucky's Roger Williams.
Freshman wide receiver Jarred Fayson started the
Gators' next drive at quarterback, but Tebow entered on
the next down.
Three plays later, as Leak marched onto the field, the
skies opened up and the boos rained down.
The starter responded with a touchdown pass, but in
the long run it is just. not enough. From this point on, if
Leak struggles at all, fans won't urge him to keep his chin
up instead, they will call for Tebow.
Afterward, Meyer said he initially thought fans were
booing a call by the referees, but after a moment, he real-
ized the fans were booing Leak.
"I was a little disappointed," Coach Urban Meyer said.
Late in the fourth quarter, Leak was still throwing deep
passes down the field, an obvious attempt to pad his stats
and quell the controversy.
I don't care what anybody says, but no coach is going
to have his starter attempt long passes with a 19-point lead
late in the fourth quarter unless there are some special mo-
When Leak showed up for post-game interviews, the
look on his face wasn't exactly joyous.
But while he could have displayed hostility toward the
fans, he handled thie situation with the class he has dis-
played since his first day here.
Gators fans could learn a lesson from their quarter-
The most pathetic part of this whole situation?
If the Gators win a Southeastern Conference title this
season, those of you who booed Leak will be kissing his
Just don't be surprised when he doesn't want to kiss

Fan-favorite Tebow steals Leak's thunder with runs
Tim Casey. Alligator Staff
UF freshman quarterback Tim Tebow stiff arms Kentucky cornerback Trevard
Lindley on Saturday. Tebow rushed for 62 yards on his first three plays.
By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
Is Tim Tebow human?
How could a football player composed of
mere flesh and bones essentially average a first
down on every touch? How could a freshman
make a home crowd boo starting quarterback
Chris Leak, arguably the nation's top passer?
"I shouldn't comment on that. I heard
it, too. That's not my business."'
UF football coach on fans booing Leak
Tebow, UF's freshman backup quarterback,
dazzled them again. Posing as instant offense, he
collected 62 yards on his first three plays of the
game all runs, no less.
He finished with 73 rushing yards on six
carries and completed one of two passes for 12
"I've got a little different mentality," said the
soft-spoken Tebow. "[And] everyone did a nice
job of blocking, especially the offensive line. All I
had to do was some running."
With UF's offense hitting and missing during
the third quarter, Coach Urban Meyer subbed
in the speedy quarterback to spark the attack.
Tebow did just that and more.
Akin to a video game, Tebow kept the ball on
a first-down option play and collected 25 yards
down the left sideline.
Tebow started the next play intending to pass
for the first time in two games. However, he
smartly scrapped that plan and scrambled for 12
more yards to the Kentucky 38-yard line. His best
play was yet to come.
On his third down of the game, Tebow
zoomed down the right sideline for 25 yards and
stiff-armed a reeling Trevard Lindley off his feet
and out of bounds.
AX raucous crowd gave the quarterback a
standing ovation as starter Chris Leak replaced
"I think that's hard to defend," said Meyer
of alternating Leak and Tebow. "All of sudden:
Boom, boom you're changing plays around.
I think when you get this thing cranking, it's a
great change up.
"What are-we trying to do? We're trying to
move the ball. We're just trying to keep them off
balance. There's certain plays Chris is good at
and we want him in there, and there are certain
plays Tim Tebow is good at."
The crowd was hardly on Meyer's page.
During the fourth quarter, when Meyer re-
placed Tebow with Leak on a red zone drive,
the Swamp booed the very quarterback who had
led the Gators to a 3-0 record and posted gaudy
numbers to boot: Fans then urged for. Tebow to
reenter the contest.
"I shouldn't comment on that," said Meyer of
the booing. "I heard it, too. That's not my busi-
Leak eventually found Cornelius Ingram for a
6-yard touchdown on that drive. After the game,
the starter downplayed the negativity.
"My main focus during the game is what goes
on in the huddle," said Leak, who completed 15
of 26 passes for 267 yards, two touchdowns and
an interception. "I'm really not into hearing the
Said Tebow: "I think Chris is one of the best
quarterbacks in the 'country. I don't think people
should boo.when he's coming on the field."
Meyer seemed determined to let Tebow get the
Gators a score on the next possession. However,
despite having four downs on Kentucky's 5-yard
line, UF lost 5 yards on two plays.
Meyer then subbed in Leak to ocean up
Tebow's mess. Facing the uphill task of throwing
a 10-yard touchdown pass, Leak became victim
of a Kentucky jailbreak blitz and was sacked.
UF block party blanks 'Bama
UF block party blanks 'Bama
By JOSH ARMSTRONG
UF coach Mary Wise paused while trying
to describe the Gators' performance. Then
she used one phrase to sum it all up:
"Blocking and the crowd," Wise said.
The No. 10 UF volleyball team recorded a
season-high 16 blocks en route to a 3-0 sweep
of Alabama on Sunday.
"Blocking comes in bunches," said sopho-
more middle blocker Kelsey Bowers, who
had a match-high 10. "Once you get that first
block, it motivates you to recreate it."
Junior setter Angie McGinnis set the UF
record for career blocks by a setter. Her five
blocks pushed her career total to 207.
The Gators were in need of that defense
after stumbling out of the gates offensively.
They trailed Alabama for most of game
one, with a hitting percentage of only .122.
"We knew that this was a team that was
going to be scrappy defensively," junior out-
side hitter Amber McCray said. "They kept a
lot of balls in play."
But the Gators' six blocks, four service
aces and heavy contributions by McCray led
them to a comeback 30-28 win.
McCray carried UF's offense with seven
kills and a .667 hitting percentage.
"Each game, we face teams with a game
plan of [trying to figure out] who they want
to commit with and who they want to stop,
and that opens up holes for us," McCray
said. "That hole opened up for me in the first
The Gators used that momentum to domi-
nate the rest of the match, winning game two
30-18 and game three 30-17.
Junior middle blocker Kisya Killingsworth
led the team in kills for the fourth consecu-
tive match with 12.
However, Killingsworth continues to
adjust to her new role as
passer. She bobbled several
balls in the back row.
"It's going to get-better,"
she said. "I'm happy with
what I'm doing right now,
but I'm not ecstatic about
vMcGinnis Wise said she was
pleased with Killingsworth's progress dur-
ing the past two weeks.
"There are routine plays that she's not
quite making on a consistent basis, and then
she's making the 'wow' play," Wise said.
"Athletes like Kisya, with her work ethic,
you know their future will have more 'wow'
plays in it."
Part of being a passer requires the 6-foot-3
Killingsworth to squat near the court floor to
"I just hope that when they hit a ball, it's
nice and high off of a block," she said. "You
don't think about that until after the play,
when you're trying to get up off the floor and
you say, 'Ooh, this is kind of low.'"

Any SEC win is important, but it
was the way UF won that stood out.
Last weekend against No. 24 Duke
-and No. 4 North Carolina,-the Gators
scored one goal combined.
This weekend, the floodgates
opened. UF netted seven total goals.
On Sunday against the Crimson
Tide, sophomore Ameera Abdullah
scored with a one-touch goal from 12
yards out in just the second minute.
The Gators scored all four of their
goals in the first half.
"I think that we just slowed the
game down and played soccer," said
Abdullah, who is tied for a team lead
with five goals. "We just moved the
ball around as fast as possible, and
Alabama is not used to that since
they're a physical team. We just
didn't want-to give them a chance to
knock at us."
UF received an added bonus
in the SEC standings when No.

Mississippi State 3-2 on Sunday.

Meyer to shuffle UF special teams
By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
UF kicker Chris Hetland got the dreaded vote of con-
fidence from Coach Urban Meyer on Sunday.
"There probably should have been [more emphasis
on field goals] already, but I had a lot of confidence go-
ing into the season that he would make those field goals
because he did a year ago," Meyer said. "I think he'll hit
those field goals."
But prior to that statement, the second-year coach
said that he would "re-evaluate" the kicker position at
After the Gators' 26-7 win against Kentucky on
Saturday, Meyer said a change could be made.
On Sept. 16 against Tennessee, Hetland missed his
only two field goal attempts of the season.
On Saturday, the Wildcats blocked two of the senior's
extra point attempts.
Though Kentucky penetrated past the UF offensive
line on both attempts, Meyer said the second kick was

Chris Leak, a fourth-year
starter, was booed in favor of
Tim Tebow, who played in just
his fourth career game.
I hope Gators fans are
ashamed right now, because
they just embarrassed them-
selves, the university and their
There are two and only
two justifiable reasons to boo
any player, let alone a player of
Leak's caliber. The first is for
a lack of effort and the second
is for a lack of class, neither of
which Leak has shown at any
time during his UF career.
And it's not like Leak was
playing that poorly, either. It
wasn't his greatest game, but
his numbers were more than
respectable, and the victory was
never really in much doubt.
To Leak, each and every
"boo" must have felt like a spin-
ning-heel kick to the chest.
Leak said he was too focused
on the game to notice it, but
don't buy that for a minute.
