Grad students afford little


By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Alligator Writer
acancino@alligator.org

It's 1:50 on a Friday afternoon,
when UF doctoral student Tim
Nevin gets ready to teach his third
lecture of the day. His students see
him every Friday and greet him by
name, but few of them know that as
a graduate assistant, Nevin makes
just $9,000 a year.
"If every two weeks I get $500
and rent is $525 per moth, more
than half of my stipend is going to
pay rent," he said.
Officials in UF's College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences agree
that graduate assistants' salaries
are low, but they say they cannot
increase them because of low fund-
ing from CLAS.
The college's tight budget has
led its graduate salaries to fall
below those at other universi-
ties. Research done by Graduate
Assistants United, UF's graduate
student union, showed that the av-
erage pay at Rutgers University in


New Jersey is about $18,000 a year.
At UF, assistants generally earn less
than $12,000.
To attract new graduate students
this year, some CLAS departments
- including history, sociology and
astronomy offered higher wages
to new graduate assistants. The
decision was approved by CLAS,
but it angered returning students
working with lower wages.
At the history department, for
example, returning assistants like
Nevin get paid $9,000, while new
assistants are paid $12,000. In ad-
dition to their salaries, graduate
assistants receive tuition waivers,
but they still have to pay for fees
- about $400 per semester.
"It's not enough," Nevin said,
adding that he takes about $4,000
in loans every semester in order to
support his wife and pay for rent,
electricity, cell phones and other liv-
ing expenses. After bills, about $200
remains in his wallet.
Nevin's wife, Debra Zakpa
Paye, a student at SFCC, uses the
salary from her two jobs to support

CITY COMMISSION

Living costs to climb


By DOMINICK TAO
Alligator Writer
dtao@alligator.org

From utility bills to property
taxes, the 2007 city budget passed
by city commissioners on Monday
will mean higher living costs for
many Gainesville residents.
The largest fee increases are
expected to come from Gainesville
Regional Utilities. The average
customer's utility bill will increase.
between 5.6 and 7.8 percent, said
Jennifer Hunt, GRU's chief financial
officer.
Hunt said the increase was driv-
en by the need for GRU to reduce
its debt, improve facilities to meet
federal regulations and to match the
increasing cost of raw materials.
Also, the rate the city uses to
calculate property taxes has gone

up 0.5426 mills, translating to a 12.59
percent increase in property taxes
this year.
One mill translates into $1 for
each $1,000 in as-
sessed property
value.

Hanrahan cited tax breaks
for developers,
like the still incomplete University
Corers project on the intersec-
tion of Northwest 13th Street and
University Avenue, as an example
of poor fiscal discipline on the city's
part.
"This is the ninth budget I've
seen," Hanrahan said: "It has by far
been the most difficult."

Digger uncovers state's oldest box-turtle fossils


By DREW HARWELL
Alligator Writer
dharwell@alligator.org

It's easy to find a turtle in
Florida. The challenge is finding
one that's 2 million years old.
UF students are taking the chal-
lenge every day by volunteering to
help Florida Museum of Natural
History officials dig up fossils
of turtles, tapirs, alligators and
sloths at a limestone quarry in
Newberry.
"We knew we had
something special."
Richard Hulbert
Florida Museum of Natural History
paleontology collections manager

Richard Hulbert, vertebrate
paleontology collections manager
for the museum, said since the dig
began in May 2005 the crew has
discovered more than 100 fossil
skeletons and a new species of ta-
pir that Hulbert has yet to name.
The fossils were discovered af-
ter work done by nearby limestone
miners shifted the site's top layer
of clay, and exposed the bones and
teeth hidden below.
On their first day of exploring
the site last year, diggers from the
museum discovered the skeletons
of two ground sloths. The skel-
etons had never been found in


Florida before.
"'Right away," Hulbert said,
"we knew we had something
special."
On Sunday, diggers discovered
the state's oldest complete speci-
men of a box turtle including its
shell, some of its legs and its neck
vertebrae.
Dean Warner, 49, who found
the turtle, drove Sunday morning
from Tampa to help in the dig.
SVolunteers use screwdrivers
to break up the clay into small
chunks. Bone fragments are
wrapped in toilet paper. Major
finds, like the box turtle and an al-
ligator found on Friday, are sealed
in a plaster cast before being trans-
ported.
Most of the dirt that surround-
ed the fossils is passed through a
screen to pick up tiny fragments
and the bones of small animals like
mice, bats and fish. Hulbert said
more than a ton of dirt has been
processed this way.
More than 150 different people'
have volunteered for the digging
since it began, contributing over
1,000 hours of work, Hulbert said.
Dylan Miner, a UF geology and
zoology junior, is one of four un-
dergraduates hired by the muse-
um for the dig. A small grant from
the National Science Foundation
allowed for the payment of the
student assistants.
On his .first day at the site,


Miner found the edge of a giant
sloth jaw and large tapir bones.
"Everybody was a kid once and
interested in dinosaurs," Miner
said. "Some didn't get over it."
Alachua resident Suzanne


Conner, 68, has helped with the
dig since it began. She always
wanted to be an archaeologist as
a child and loved to find arrow-
heads in her neighborhood.
"I like getting outside and fig-


during it all out," she said. "I like to
see what I can find next."
He said the museum is looking
for more volunteers. The crews dig
seven days a week for nine months
a year.

UF's first lady participates in stress-relief program


* PROGRAM'S KICKOFF IS TODAY.

By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Today students can walk a mile with
UF's first lady Chris Machen, and Albert and
Alberta, as a way to relieve stress.
Gators on the Go, which begins at 11 a.m.
on the Reitz Union Colonnade, is hosted by
Healthy Gators 2010, a coalition whose goal is
to promote physical activity as a way to cope
with common stress-related issues.


"We want to create a campus environment
that supports the development and mainte-
naice of a healthy body, mind and spirit," said
Jill Vanes, vice chairwoman of the coalition.
"A simple walk between classes can really
help improve someone's outlook on life."
Participants will listen to a presentation
about the program and learn about different
ways they can be active and deal with stress. A
one-mile walk around campus will follow one
of the five new Healthy Gators 2010 campus
activity.routes, Vames said.
The first 200 participants will receive a free


T-shirt, stress balls and wa-
ter, provided by the College
of Health and Human
Performance, she said.
Participants can track
their progress using the
Gators on the Go Web site.
The Web site will offer
Machen a walking steps tracking
program as well as provide
information on future events, she said.
With the Fall semester getting under way,
physical activity may be a great way for stu-


dents to deal with stress.
Daniel Barber, a quantitative sciences ju-
nior, believes that going to the gym is a great
way to cope with the rigors of schoolwork.
"Absolutely," he said, putting the 45-pound
weight away. "Whenever I'm all worked up
over a test or something I just lift some weight.
It takes my mind off of things."
Gators on the Go has been around for
years, but this will be the first time the pro-
gram will be offered at no cost. The slogan for
this year's program is "Orange and Blue A
Healthy You."

On worldwide bike trip, man stops in Gainesville


* TRYING FOR A RECORD, ONE MAN
HAS VISITED ABOUT 50 COUNTRIES.

By ALEX TIEGEN
Alligator Writer
atiegen@alligator.org

Yiming Liu has purchased more than six
different bicycles in the past five years. One
was bent out of a shape when it was hit by
a truck in Ecuador. Another was stolen in
North Africa.
Those are the risks you take when you
bike through more than 50 countries. And
the support of the friends he met around
the world helped him cycle through the
journey.
"The Earth has become a global village,"
said Liu, who speaks only Chinese and com-
municated through a translator. "It's the
only family we have."
Liu made Gainesville his latest stop on

the bicycle ride Sunday. He will leave some-
time this week.
The 45-year-old elementary school
physical education teacher from China
told a crowd gathered in the International
Friendship Inc. headquarters, located in
north Gainesville, about his adventure.
He was inspired by stories of a Chinese
athlete who swam across one of the
country's vast rivers. He said he wanted
to do something no one else had done and
join other record holders in the Guinness
World Records. China's bid for the Summer
Olympics gave him the perfect motive to
start training.
Liu began exercising on his bike and
gathering passports and other materials for
his journey about 10 years ago. He would
bike from province to province. When he
heard that China won the bid on July 13,
2001, to hold the 2008 Olympics in Beijing,
Liu was almost ready to begin his journey.
His wife told him he was setting himself up
for torture.
"My family said I was crazy," Liu said,
and laughed.
He embarked with the intention to
promote the Beijing Olympics and Beijing
culture to the world. He also wanted to pro-
mote world peace and hoped media cover-
age of his project would help him fulfill his
mission.
He left China on Nov. 8, 2001, with two
friends who both eventually quit. He biked
through South Asia before hopping a plane
and continuing his travels in Africa.
In Africa, Liu saw pyramids he had only
seen in books. On his way to Alexandria,
Egypt, he was robbed at knifepoint and lost
most of his possessions.
He then journeyed to the Middle East,
where was surrounded by sandy desert for
days. He was arrested in Lebanon. Liu then
biked through Europe, where he visited the
Eiffel Tower. After touring other European
countries, Liu left for South America.
Since he had limited knowledge of other

languages and cultures when he left China,
Liu relied on Chinese families living in the
countries he biked through. Chinese com-
munities could be found in nearly every
country he visited, but he sometimes slept in
the Chinese Embassy or in fields or forests.
Liu found the nomad's world to be less
accommodating than domestic life.
He was followed by howling dogs one
night and had to ride to refuge in a gas
station. In Miami, he was startled by an al-
ligator that sprang from the water. He spent
much of the night opening arid closing his
tent door to make sure the creature hadn't
come closer.
. Hungry, he sampled a mysterious desert
fruit in one country. But he soon felt queasy,
so he gagged himself until he vomited be-
fore a potential poison could take effect.
Most residents of the countries Liu visit-
ed treated him with respect. They would let


him sleep in their homes or give him jobs.
Messages scribbled in Chinese charac-
ters, Spanishl and other languages cover
the pages of Liu's worn autograph book.
Newspaper clippings kept in Liu's folders
show him smiling next to local leaders, such
as the mayor of Bogota, Colombia.
Xiao Chuang, Liu's 14-year-old son, tells
classmates of his father's travels. Liu's wife,
who rebuked him at the start of his journey,
asked to join him after his visit to Cuba.
Liu's journey has cost 30,000 yuan
- about $3,700 dollars of his personal
money so far. He relied mostly on the kind-
ness of strangers. Residents of Tampa, his
most recent stop, gave him about $4,000.
Liu plans to bike through Australia after
leaving America. His journey will come full
circle when he leaves the Pacific Islands,
completing his tour of the southern hemi-
sphere, and returns home in 2008.


Disabled complain


about dirty buses


By DOMINICK TAO
Alligator Writer
dtao@alligator.org

Vatrice Perrin, a third-year
law student at UF, is wheelchair-
bound. She relies on buses oper-
ated by MV Transportation Inc.
to get around Gainesville.
But these special-needs buses
are filthy, smelly and unreliable,
said Perrin and about seven oth-
er disabled Gainesville residents
at the City Commission meeting
Monday.
"You cross your fingers that
you get a van, period," Perrin
said. "They're actually a public
health threat. It's like Third
World conditions on the bus."
The cadre of angry residents,
with disabilities ranging from
blindness to diabetes, came to
the meeting to persuade the


commissioners to demand bet-
ter conditions for their buses.
Perrin cited grime, foul odors
and urine on one of the trans-
portation company's vehicles.
Russel Tieskoetter, one of
MV's vice presidents, said
Gainesville is a big client, ac-
counting
Gainesville City for about
Commission 20 percent
of his
compa-
ny's business in the Southeast.
At the meeting, Tieskoetter told
the city commissioners he was
doing everything he could to
remedy the complaints.
In a compromise between
MV and angry citizens, the com-
mission voted to alter the com-
pany's contract so that it could
be terminated in February if it
does not improve conditions.


Land donation helps environment


By CHAD SMITH
Alligator Writer
csmith@alligator.org

Two UF alumni have given the university a $1
million tract of land on one condition it is not to
be touched.
Ken and Linda McGurn, a husband-and-wife
duo of real estate developers, wanted to preserve
the land they own on Lake Tuscawilla, just south
of Micanopy. They also wanted to donate to their
alma mater.
UF is selling the land to the Alachua
Conservation Trust, a nonprofit organization that
preserves natural resources in Alachua County.
Bald eagles, sandhill cranes, foxes, deer, opos-
sums, alligators and "everything imaginable"
make their homes in that area, Ken McGurn said.
The donation encloses more than 216 acres. By
comparison, the UF campus is about 2,000 acres.
The lakeside property is mostly woods and
wetlands.
"A Northerner would call it swampy," McGurn
said.
Chris Brazda, spokesman for the UF Foundation,
said the state is likely to match 100 percent of the
gift, making UF's total gain about $2 million.
The McGurns, who have a home near the
lake, requested that the money be split between
the Warrington College of Business, from which
they both graduated, and the Florida Museum of


Natural History.
Other locals, including Alachua County
Commissioner Mike Byerly, have donated Lake
Tuscawilla land to the conservation trust as well,
bringing the protected tract to more than 350 acres
so far, he said.
"We're preserving a bit of old Florida."
Ken McGurn
donor

McGurn, who is an officer on the board of di-
rectors at the natural history museum, is trying to
convince more people to preserve land through
conservation easements, which allow the owner to
keep the land legally but state he or she can't build
there. Part of the land donated by the McGums was
an easement. McGum said he hopes to bring the
total preserved area to 500 acres.
While in graduate school at UF in the early
1980s, the McGurns began purchasing buildings
in downtown Gainesville, making renovations and
selling them for profit, Ken McGurn said.
Since then, they have helped revitalize the
downtown area with projects like the Sun Center
building, Arlington Square Apartments and several
others.
But, McGurn said, the land around Lake
Tuscawilla is off-limits.
"We're preserving a bit of old Florida," he said.

Just do it

Voting for SG terminally

uncool but necessary
Here at the Alligator, we love voting. We'd do it ev-
ery day if we could. But then again, we also love
Dungeons & Dragons we're level-five elves with
plus-10 charisma!
OK, so voting is for nerds. Granted. But so is Student
Government as a whole. Think about it.
Independent vice presidential candidate Nina DeJong?
Nerd. The Action Party? Nerd city. And Pants? Those guys
are running for SG as a joke. They think it's a fun way to
spend a weekend. If that's not nerdy, we don't know what
is.
Even Swamp, for all its fratty grandeur, has its fair
share of poindexters. Take Student Body President John
Boyles, for instance. The hair, the suit, the little gadgets
he's always fiddling with the man is a white Steve
Urkel, and you know it.
If you're like most students, you probably think you're
too cool to vote in today's SG election. Unless your mom
still dresses you, you're right. Bit consider this. Those.
geeks are fighting over something pretty important the
right to spend your money and whoever wins gets first
crack at $12.6 million of it.
Here's how it works. SG's budget comes from an
Activity & Service Fee of $9.24 for every credit hour you
take. It's the nerd equivalent of hitting you in.the head
with a brick and rifling through your pockets, but some-
how no one gets arrested for it. Go figure.
So if you want SG to spend all that money your mon-
ey on you, vote tomorrow or Wednesday. If you don't,
they'll blow it all on pocket protectors, "Babylon 5" DVDs
and Magic: The Gathering cards. Damn nerds..
The polls are open from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. Wear a bag
over your head if you have to. We'll see you there but
don't worry, we won't tell your friends.

SG election like '04 White House race


Be a leader, Bern


S o UF President Bernie
Machen says the
College of Liberal
Arts and Sciences isn't his
responsibility. Interesting.
CLAS has more than 12,000
undergraduates in 40 differ-
ent majors. It provides most
of UF's mandatory courses.
And now, thanks to a $4 mil-
lion-dollar debt, it's down-
sizing. But hey, Machen
says, it's not my problem.
Well, nuts to that.
For CLAS, UF's biggest
college, this is a crucial mo-
ment. But its just as impor-
tant for Machen. His Top 10
plan promises a lot pres-
tige, smaller classes and more
resources and demands
just as much from the student
body. We're not just talking
about higher tuition. Machen


has also proposed a 15-cred-
its-a-semester minimum for
undergraduates, among other
things.
For the administration's
plans to succeed, students and
faculty must trust Machen to
Make the right changes with
all the money he's asking
for. That's not easy, especially
considering some of Machen's
past decisions. But now it's
even harder to believe him
when he says students are his
first priority.
If Bernie .Machen wants
to lead, he should start now.
CLAS is the most important
part of UF without it, the
university can barely func-
tion, let alone crack the Top 10.
So step up now, Mr. President.
If you don't, students won't
trust you again.

W ith the polls opening at 8 this morning, it looks
like this year's Student Government election
will be reminiscent of the 2004 presidential
elections. You all remember that, right? On that cool
November morning almost two years ago, nearly all
voters pulled the lever of democracy either for Bush or
against Bush.
In these next two days, it seems that UF students will
do the same and vote either for or against the Swamp
Party in the SG vice presidential election.
With the exception of Kappa Kappa Gamma inde-
pendent candidate Nina DeJong's sorority I'm betting
that nearly all the Greeks will vote for Swamp. And on
paper ballots, no less. Then they'll all run around cam-
pus, collecting everyone's "I voted" stickers for some
pointless house contest.
Instead of scaring its base with abortion and gay
marriage, like the Bush campaign, Swamp scares me
by surprise! not taking a stance on anything. I still
don't know where the party stands on tuition hikes or
the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. I think the jury's
still out on who framed Roger Rabbit.
Swamp just doesn't get the students. SG Supervisor
of Elections Brian Aungst, a Swamp appointee, didn't
introduce online voting, even after more than 80 percent
of the student body voted for it last Spring. Why? Aungst
says it's not good enough for the state or federal level
- so it's not good enough for UF either.
Swamp candidates need a slap in the face or a bucket
of icy water thrown on them. Wake up, guys! This is a
university, not a nation.
Then we have the Action Party as the John Kerry of the
group. You know the guy who just really, really wants


things to be better. Vice presiden-
tial candidate Chris Chase seems
to think a waterslide and a Moe's
Southwest Grill will solve all of
our problems. These are fun ideas
Jessiin theory, but Action's platform is
.Jessica Holland nothing but fluff. Like John Kerry,
Jess Suggests Chase and company just don't
letters@alligator.org have what it takes.
The next candidate is Nina
DeJong. While there weren't any
female presidential candidates on the ballot in 2004, I
equate her to Hillary Clinton in 2008. Nina's on the bal-
lot, and she's a woman. Other than that, I'm not sure
what makes her so different from the men she's running
against. But that doesn't seem to be reason enough to
vote for or against her.
Finally, there's the Pants Party. Vice presidential can-
didate Bruce Haupt reminds me of Ralph Nader he
doesn't have a shot at winning, but he hasn't given up.
And like Nader, he'll probably get a decent percentage
of the vote enough to play spoiler, anyway. Why?
Because unlike Swamp, Pants doesn't take itself too seri-
ously. That's just what SG needs.
But the Pants Party isn't just a joke its campaign is
a breath of fresh air. The Greeks have dominated SG for
much too long, and it's about time we got serious about
shaking things up. Action won't really change what's
wrong with SG either it will just cover it up with shiny
new toys. With Pants, we'd have a clean slate and new
ideas.

Letters to the Editor
Machen sends message on CLAS
When UF President Bernie Machen ad-
dressed the UF Faculty Senate last Friday
to defend his draconian budget cuts in
the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences,
I realized something: Machen must have
thought he was going to a different school
when he took the job.
Now he is working hard to rectify
his mistake by changing the university's
name. Seeking to "improve" UF, Machen
is turning it into a big FU. I have accord-
ingly seized this opportunity for change
and ordered new business cards with our
new name on them. I'm sure I will make a
better impression than ever when I hand
them out.
Richard Burt
English professor



Please tell me these guys are joking
I am at that age 60 when one's
memory skills begin to deteriorate. Every
day, I make sure I know the date. But lately,
I have had a couple of scary moments
while reading the Alligator.
First, there was an item about UF trust-
ee Manny Fernandez, who said faculty
morale in the College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences was good. He knows, apparently,
because he had lunch with five faculty
members.
Then I read about a Faculty Senate
meeting in which UF President Bernie
Machen said CLAS' five-year plan was not
his problem. I panicked. I thought it was
Fall, but after reading the news, Iwas sure
it was really April Fools' Day.
Antonio C. Gil
Spanish professor



All of UF is Machen's responsibility
I was instantly drawn to the headline
in Friday's Alligator, "Machen says plan-
not his responsibility." As a former student


in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences,
majoring in one of those unimportant sub-
jects history I was appalled by both
the five-year plan and U President Bernie
Machen's response to it.
Machen is the president of this uni-
versity. Everything is his responsibility,
no matter how far removed from his per-
ceived domain. It all comes back to him.
His complete and total failure as a leader is
evident in CLAS' multimillion-dollar debt.
Yes, others are in charge of the day-to-day
operations of CLAS, but at the end of the
day, the buck stops at Machen.
Does anyone remember the fundrais-
ing --supposedly more than $200 million
that Machen secured this past year? The
Alligator pointed out that it's being invest-
ed. But God forbid we invest that money
in the university now, when it needs it the
most. Downsizing academic departments,
shockingly enough, won't make UF a top
university. Sorry Bernie, but, this whole
place is your responsibility.

Alumni to blame for booing Leak
After Satdrday's game, I am less than
enthused with the idea of becoming a UF
alumna not because I don't love UF, but
because I would have to join other alumni
in the west stands.
On Saturday, I had the opportunity to
spend a game with some of these so-called
fans who revealed their true nature
as some of the most fickle, unapprecia-
tive people I've ever met. I'm referring,
of course, to the manner in which they
treated UF's starting quarterback, Chris
Leak. I couldn't believe my ears when
alumni booed Leak as he took the field in
the fourth quarter to replace backup quar-
terback Tim Tebow.
I overheard one fan wishing Leak
would break his rib cage. I left the stadium
in disgust. True fans don't boo a member
of their own team, especially one as dedi-


cated and talented as Leak.
For now, I'mjust glad I get to spend the
rest of this season in the student section. As
for when I'm an alumna? I think I'll stick
to scalped student tickets. I like the view
from the cheap seats much better.

Home crowd booed Meyer, not Leak
I realize the goal of sports writing is
to.provoke controversy, but if any of the
Alligator's sportswriters actually watched
Saturday's game, they'd know that the
crowd's boos were not directed at UF
quarterback Chris Leak. They were meant
for UF coach Urban Meyer.
Meyer decided to replace backup quar-
terback Tim Tebow, who did a great job all
day. Besides, it wasn't a close game against
a good team. We were playing Kentucky.
Tim Tebow deserved to finish the drive
and didn't get the chance to. That's what
ignited the booing.

Gainesville needs low-cost housing
In response to Alexis Buntin's letter
last week, I have just one thing to say: My
God, is Buntin arrogant and unfeeling!
In Gainesville, some people may "live in
squalor," but damned few actually want
to.
I object to spending taxpayers' dollars
to subsidize luxury units, because the poor
and homeless need affordable housing.
Tearing down affordable units to build
luxury condos is an insult and a slap in
the face of logic. Maybe Buntin can afford
luxury housing I can't, not even after
working for 55 years but Gainesville
doesn't need it.

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 2006 U ALLIGATOR, 7


It's my decision,


so stop telling


me to vote, OK?

V oting is how we decide as a society what we
feel should be done. You'll never hear more
about it then around election season, when
those who never cared about exercising their rights
suddenly become indignant and demand that ev-
eryone stuff the ballot box. P. Diddy's "Vote or Die"
campaign comes to mind.
However, an interesting
Jon fact is that the majority of
Rozewicki this country doesn't vote at
U-Wire all. According to population
figures from the 2000 U.S.
Census and the 2004 presidential election results,
about 42 percent of the country didn't do jack on
Election Day. The 2002 midterm election was even
worse 65 percent of eligible voters, about 135
million people, did nothing.
Usually, this is where the columnist decries the
laziness and apathy of kids these days. But I'm
not going to do that.
Americans talk proudly, and. at length, about
how great it is that we can vote in this country.
But I'm more proud to live in a country where we
have the right not to vote. Because, believe it or
not, some countries do not have this right. Like
Australia, for instance.
I say that's garbage. A right isn't a right at all
if you're being forced into it. Nobody needs to
fight for the right to do popular things they're
just givens. Nobody fought for the right to wear
a helmet while riding a motorcycle. Historically,
nobody.fought for the right to say the king was a
swell guy.
People only need to fight for the right to do
stupid, offensive or unpopular things. So here I
am, fighting for the right not to vote.
In this country, I don't think we need to keep
talking about fighting for the right to vote with
every election. Voting is popular. Millions of peo-
ple do it every year. Those who don't are publicly
lectured, mocked and insulted.
We're told that if we don't vote, then we're not
patriotic. Or worse, not American. We're told we
shouldn't complain about the government be-
cause we didn't do anything to change it.
I say "we" because I'm one of those Americans
who doesn't vote. I'm not unpatriotic. I'm proud
to live here. I'm not ignorant. In fact, I listen to
hours'upon hours of talk radio each week and
watch "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" and
"The Colbert Report" every night. If anyone
should be voting, it's me.
But I haven't voted in the past few elections
because I have not seen a candidate compelling
enough to really inspire me.
We can talk at length about what ordinary
people should be doing that would be voting
but we're missing an important point. What
does it say about, our political system that the
majority of the populace chooses not to have a
voice in it?
To me, it says that maybe, just maybe, the
problem isn't the voting public or the nonvot-
ing public. Maybe the problem is our political
system itself.
Either that's it or most people in this country
are just stupid. But even if that's the case, non-
voters are a political majority bigger than the
Democratic or the Republican parties.
So the next time you start a sermon on the
duties of voting, please ask yourself why people
don't vote. For some people, it's about more than
just laziness.

University.

Student plans coffeehouse


UF gets faculty funds


By JESSICA PALOMBO
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF students will be able to drink locally pro-
duced coffee at a nonprofit, student-run coffee-
house on campus if a UF student's plan takes off.
Skeet Surrency, a third-year horticultural sci-
ence major at UF, handed out free coffee on the
Plaza of the Americas last week, discussed his
ideas and asked students to sign a petition.
"I'mjust kind of getting the ball rolling, but this
is something that has the support of most students
I've talked to," he said.
He said he and the nearly 600 members of his
Facebook.com group "'JF Student-Worker Run
Coffee Shop" want an option other than Java City
or Starbucks on campus.
"Starbucks is not a bad company," said
Surrency. "We just have issues with the commer-
cialization of campus."
He said UF should instead strive to create spac-
es that are "inspiring, culturally diverse, sponta-
neous and responsive to students in Gainesville."
Surrency organized a benefit concert Friday
night at the Civic Media Center to raise money to
support his coffeehouse vision.
Between 70 and 80 people attended, raising
$260, said Joe Richard of the CMC.
Surrency said a nonprofit coffeehouse would
keep costs down, passing savings on to customers
by using local suppliers, such as Gainesville-based
Sweetwater Organic Coffee Co.
"It's fairly traded, and it's delicious, gourmet
coffee" he said. "It would only make sense."
The first step toward placing the coffeehouse
on campus will be to pose the issue as a referen-


dum on the Spring Student Government ballot,
Surrency said.
He said after tabling for three days last week on
the Plaza of the Americas, he has gotten more than
100 of the required 500 signatures on a petition.
Although he said he has no doubt he will get
the necessary student signatures, he believes he is
up against the UF administration and its exclusive
food-service contractor, Aramark.
"It's fairly traded, and it's delicious,
gourmet coffee."
Skeet Surrency
UF horticultural science junior

Because of Aramark's long-term contract with
UF, he said, nobody else may hand out even free
food on campus. The Hare Krishnas, the sole
exception to this rule, are allowed to serve lunch
based on religious grounds, he said.
After meeting Sept. 14 with UF Director of
Business Services Jim Morgan and Aramark rep-
resentative Bill Zemba, Surrency said he felt "a
little optimistic."
He said he asked if Aramark could take a
hands-off approach and let students run a coffee-
house while still meeting the terms of its contract.
Zemba said it was a possibility, Surrency said.
Surrency said the arrangement could work
like this: Aramark would deliver supplies to the
coffeehouse but not charge student workers more
than it would cost to pick up the supplies them-
selves.
"Basically, they would just work with us and
not try to make money off us," he said.

UF received a $250,000 grant
Monday to improve the work lives
of university faculty.
"We're shooting for Top 10," said
Debra Walker King, associate pro-
vost for faculty development. "In
order to do that, we have to meet
the changing needs of the faculty."
UF administrators had sub-
mitted a plan addressing faculty
needs to the American Council on
Education, a coordinating body for
American universities. The council
gave grants to five schools, includ-
ing Duke University, the University
of California, Berkeley, and the
University of California, Davis.
The plan also outlined several
changes that have been made to
help faculty. Tenure and promotion
tracks were adjusted to account for
family responsibilities, faculty were
given more input in decision-mak-
ing at UF and health benefits were
created for unmarried partners.
In a 2005 survey that helped
form the plan, 45 percent of UF
faculty members who responded



said they had a hard time balancing
their work and personal lives. Sixty-
one percent said faculty procedures
were too bureaucratic.
One objective stated in the plan
...., is to prune the
university bu-
-:'; reaucracy so that
.; faculty can more
S easily take ad-
vantage of avail-
able programs.
S"A lot of the
King faculty don't
know about the
programs," King said.
Administrators will spend part
of the grant on promoting faculty
accommodations. They will also use
it to pay temporary substitutes for
faculty who take leave, King said.
Another new program outlined
in the plan helps newly hired fac-
ulty members find work for their
spouses. A council on diversity and
the status of women in the faculty is
awaiting approval.
"UF is at a crossroad," states the
plan, in which administrators vow
"to match our status in research
and academics with a reputation for
workplace satisfaction."

Facebook could be invaluable campaign resource


Politicians can buys ads on the site


By LAUREN SACHS
Alligator Contributing Writer

If all press is good press, then the more
pregs the better. Right? Or so some politicians
might believe.
If they agree, they now have a new outlet
for campaign advertising: Facebook.com.
Starting this month, the Web site used as a
virtual meeting place for millions of students
nationwide will be selling advertising space to
politicians for an undisclosed amount.
Students can add politicians to their friends
lists, and once the two profiles are linked, stu-
dents can read anything the candidate posts.
Although low voter turnout among young
people has been a problem for years, recent
programs like "Rock the Vote" and UF's own
"Chomp the Vote" combat voter apathy.


Now, it seems, Facebook will be helping
politicians reach out to younger voters in at-
tempts to garner more votes.
Candidates who choose to advertise will
be able to reach nearly nine million registered
Facebook users, enough to make a drastic
change at the polls, according to an article in
The Boston Globe.
Harry Johnston, a former congressman,
won nine of 10 campaigns and said that he
never targeted anyone under 30.
"I don't mean to be so cynical, but in 20
years in public office, I saw no increase in par-
ticipation by youth in politics," Johnston said
in an e-mail.
While Johnston hopes Facebook will raise
interest in politics, the primary held two
weeks ago did little to quell fears of nonpar-
ticipation by young people. Johnston calls the


numbers an "embarrassment."
On Facebook, students can judge their
peers' popularity by the amount of friends
they have in their networks. If politicians
gauge their popularity among youth the same
way, campaign strategies could differ.
Johnston, however, does not think politi-
cians will take anything away from the num-
ber of friends their Facebook pages generate.
"Numbers don't count," he said.
While the Facebook group says it will not
charge politicians as much as
Elections it does corporate advertisers
S for site space, it will still cost
campaign dollars.
Statewide candidates will not invest in
something as new as Facebook, Johnston said.
"Television had been around 20 years be-
fore politicians caught on," he said. "It was all
newspapers and radio."
Beth Rosenson, an assistant professor of
political science at UF, believes it is too early to


predict the effect Facebook campaigning will
have on election outcomes.
However, if this form of advertisement
encourages young people to participate in
politics by voting or donating to a campaign,
it is a positive effect and worth it, Rosenson
said in an e-mail.
Rosenson said she does not feel political
advertisements on Facebook are unethical.
"The major networks make a big profit off
political advertisements, so why shouldn't
Facebook charge?" Rosenson said.
She acknowledges that there are other risks
involved in advertising on such a high-vol-
ume Web site. Potential voters may find the
ads annoying or unappealing, or may ignore
them altogether, Rosenson said.
"In our electoral system, politicians have
to get their names and images out there, and
advertising is a key means of doing that,"
Rosenson said. "That's just the reality of
American politics."

Case to test Florida's anti-hazing law


* FIVE ARE CHARGED IN THE AL-
LEGED HAZING AT FLORIDA A&M.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

TALLAHASSEE Marcus Jones suf-
fered a ruptured ear drum and injuries
to his buttocks that required 25 stitches
after his initiation into the Kappa Alpha Psi
Fraternity at Florida A&M University.
He told his parents that for four days
he was blindfolded, paddled with wooden
canes and punched with boxing gloves.
Jones, a sophomore, wanted to keep the
beatings quiet, but his father called police.
They charged five fraternity brothers under
a new Florida law that makes hazing a
felony if it results in serious bodily injury or


death. Possible penalties range from proba-
tion to five years in prison.
The case is the first major test of one
of the nation's toughest anti-hazing laws.
Opening statements in the trial start
Wednesday, which is in the middle of
National Hazing Prevention Week, an
event organized by the Association of
Fraternity Advisors.
Forty-four states have anti-hazing laws,
but Florida has made it a serious criminal
offense, said retired Pennsylvania Judge
Mitch Crane, an anti-hazing advocate who
has been following the case.
"If these young men are found guilty
and if they are sent to jail, then it will have
national implications," Crane said.
The Florida A&M students are accused
of beating Jones, 19, of Decatur, Ga., in


February.
The defendants, Brian Bowman, 23;
Cory Gray, 22; Jason Harris, 25; Marcus
Hughes, 21; and Michael Morton, 23, have
been suspended pending the outcome of
the case. The university also has suspended
the fraternity chapter until 2013.
Defense lawyer Chuck Hobbs said he
will present evidence that Jones, who was
blindfolded during the initiation, failed
to sufficiently identify who hit him when
questioned by investigators. He also plans
to cite medical evidence he claimed would
show Jones has fully recovered.
The Florida law was inspired by the 2001
death of 18-year-old Chad Meredith during
rush week at the University of Miami. The
freshman drowned while trying to swim
across a campus lake after drinking.


Rehearsal hall


adds space for


marching band
By MICHAEL DAVIS
Alligator Contributing Writer

The owner of the New York Yankees is giving his
claim to fame to UE
George Steinbrenner donated the funds to start con-
struction on a new band building that will be named
in his honor.
And in about a year, the marching band won't have
to carry their instruments quite as far to get to athletic
events.
Construction of the George Steinbrenner Band
Building, a new band rehearsal hall, began over the
summer and should be complete in about a year.
With more than 5,800 square feet of space, the re-
hearsal hall will not only be able to accommodate the
entire "Pride of the Sunshine" Fightin' Gator Marching
Band, but also serve as an emergency shelter and a
storage space for instruments.
"It's a nice addition to the entire School
of Music."
David Waybright
UF director of bands

In an e-mail, Cydney McGlothlin, project manager,
said the project was initially an addition to the existing
School of Music but has since been changed to a free-
standing structure next to the Music Building.
The facility as a whole is slated to have more than
15,500 square feet of space on two levels.
SThe Steinbrenner Building will also include band
offices, a sheet music library, an instrument storage
room and an instrument issue room.
Because the band equipment will be located next to
the Music Building, the new building will also help fa-
cilitate band practices, said UF director of bands David
Waybright.
The marching band currently practices on Norman
Field across 13th Street. The Steinbrenner building will
also serve as a shelter during hurricanes or other emer-
gency situations.
The rehearsal hall is really the perfect space because
it will be a large, clear space without columns or fixed
furniture, McGlothlin said.
Because the Steinbrenner Building will be a free-
standing building and not just an addition to the Music
Building, the project's budget has reached $6 million,
McGlothlin said. With the construction fences already
in place, crews will soon begin moving dirt, she said.
"Everybody in all of the bands is excited,"
Waybright said. "Its a nice addition to the entire School

ofM usic,". ..

STUDENT LIFE

Vice presidential debate attracts little attention


By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Staff Writer
Ilewis@alligator.org

Candidates vying for Student
Government's No. 2 spot promised
during a Monday debate to open
SG's doors but few students were
around to care.
Not a single person bothered to
stick around for the whole Student
Body vice presidential debate, in
which candidates emphasized the
need for more student involve-
ment. Just a handful of students
milled around for brief portions of
the event.
UF's College Republicans and
College Democrats hosted the event,
which was held on the Reitz Union
Colonnade. Organizers designed
the debate to educate students about
today's SG election, which will con-
tinue through Wednesday.
Students will determine about
half the members of the Student
Senate and a new vice president,
who will help oversee more than
$12 million of student money.
But the three candidates at
Monday's debate Chris Chase of
the Action Party, Bruce Haupt of the

manent position with the Swamp
Party, could not attend the event
because of a scheduling conflict,


Swamp officials said.
Debate moderator Danielle
Schulman, who struggled to make
her voice heard amid the union's
lunchtime rush, asked the three
candidates about their plans for the
SG Cabinet an organization that
plans student programs and falls
under the vice president's respon-
sibility.
Chase, the Action candidate,
said he hopes to make the 40-plus-
member Cabinet a more efficient
organization.
"The Action Party has a platform
that is 100 percent foolproof," he
said.
Meanwhile, DeJong and Haupt
stressed their goals to change SG's
culture. DeJong wants to ensure
more women become involved,
while Haupt hopes to make SG
more "fun."
By reducing elitism in SG, he
said, more students will become
interested in the organization.
A few SG Senate hopefuls set
up tables near the event. Most of
them ignored the debate and spent
their time wooing potential voters
instead.

help students move and mix music at house parties.
"It's unfortunate that we are not paying our TAs
more," said Matt Gallman, graduate coordinator for
the history department.
"It's unfortunate that we are not paying
our TAs more."
Matt Gallman
graduate coordinator

Gallman said that although his department wanted
to increase the wages of all its graduate assistants,
CLAS officials would not allow it. In fact, he said his
department was not given new money at all for as-
sistants, so to offer the additional $3,000, the history
department hired fewer assistants.
Although CLAS Dean Neil Sullivan said he was
not involved in the decision-making process, officials
from the statistics and anthropology departments said
Sullivan's office offered an explanation as to why re-
turning students could not be paid more.
Carol Rozear, an official from the statistics depart-
ment, said CLAS told her office that assistants could
not receive a salary increase higher than what GAU
had negotiated with the university.
In August, the union negotiated a 3 percent salary
increase for graduate assistants, which will go into ef-
fect Oct. 1.


But Bret Seferian, co-president of GAU, said the 3
percent increase does not represent a cap on graduate
salaries. Departments are free to raise wages as much
as they want.
Ken Sassaman, chairman of the department of an-
thropology, said he was also told a year ago that he -
could not increase salaries for returning students.
But when he called GAU, officials told Sassaman
he was free to hike department wages beyond the
minimum increase. He then raised graduate assistant
salaries from $17.50 per hour to $19.
Regardless of whether departments granted higher
wages this year, most students still say their salaries are
too low.
Peter Waylen, chairman of the geography depart-
ment, said the salaries of his 12 graduate assistants
about $8,500 are the lowest in the college and
among the country's top geography programs.
Even the chemistry department, which offers its
students about $18,500 a year, sometimes loses top
students to other universities. The reason, said depart-
"ment chairman Daniel R. Talham, is that UF's rate is
lower than the nationwide average.
UF Provost Janie Fouke said she's not surprised
when UF loses graduate students to other universities.
However, she said that to increase CLAS funding, the
university would have to cut money from other col-
leges or find a new way to earn money.
Nevin, the history doctoral student, said UF needs
to find a way to increase the CLAS budget.
"My situation as a graduate student is very typical
(at UF)," he said. "My stipend is too low to support me
and my wife."


All graduate assistants
receive tuition waivers, but
they have to pay for fees.

Pope: reject violence


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CASTEL GANDOLFO, Italy
- Seeking to end anger in the Islamic
world about his remarks on holy war,
Pope Benedict XVI told Muslim envoys
Monday their two faiths must over-
come historic enmities and together
reject violence, and said the future of
humanity is at stake.
The pope also urged "reciprocity" in
religious freedom, calling for preserv-
ing the rights of Christians throughout
the Islamic world.
"The circumstances which have
given rise to our gathering are well-
known," Benedict said, referring to his
remarks on Islam in a Sept. 12 speech
at Regensburg University in Germany,
which set off protests around the
Muslim world.
He did not dwell on the contested
remarks, in which he quoted a 14th-
century Byzantine emperor as saying:
"Show me just what Muhammad
brought that was new, and there you
will find things only evil and inhuman,
such as his command to spread by the
sword the faith he preached."
Benedict has already expressed
regret for offending Muslims and said
his remarks did not reflect his personal
views, but he has not offered a com-
plete apology as some have sought.
Still, his five-minute address
Monday at a meeting with 22 foreign
diplomats and representatives of
Italian-Muslim organizations whom
the pope greeted one by one, clasping
their hands warmly seemed to be
well-received by his guests at his vaca-
tion palace in the Alban Hills south of
Rome.
"The Holy Father stated his pro-


found respect for Islam," Iraqi envoy
Albert Edward Ismail Yelda said as
he left the 30-minute meeting. "This
is what we were expecting. It is now
time to put what happened behind and
build bridges."
In Nearly all the
other envoys left
without speaking to
reporters. Officials
from the embassies
of Egypt and Turkey
said their ambas-
sadors would have
Benedict XVI no comment. The
Iranian, Indonesian,
Lebanese and Libyan embassies did
not answer their phones.
Fahmi Howeidi, a liberal Islamic
writer in Egypt, said that since the
pope did not apologize, protests may
continue. "(Benedict) addressed the
ambassadors but didn't deal with the
Muslim street the anger in the street
will continue," Howeidi said in a tele-
phone interview.
Tariq Ramadan, a professor of
Islamic studies at Oxford University,
called the meeting "mainly political"
intended to improve relations with
Muslim states.
"The people that were convinced
he was against Islam are not going to
change their mirds," said Ramadan,
who" recently wrote that Muslims
must respond to Benedict's view of the
Christian character of Europe and what
it means for identity.
Benedict touched on religion
and violence, saying Christians and
Muslims "must learn to work together
... to guard against all forms of intoler-
ance and to oppose all manifestations
of violence."

Rto evaluate and
berrer implement faculty input in
academic decision making at UF
The American Association of Uni-
versit- Professors asserts that, in a top-
tier research institution. faculn- should
have primary responsibdirt in forming
academic policy. Administration is re-
sponsible for implementation of those
policiesbudgeung and operations.
This means faculty should be
seating police around issues of cur-
riculum, tenure and promotion
standards, academic freedom. gradua-
tion criteria, sabbaricals, creation and
discontinuation of academic programs,
and long-range planning. Likewise,
administration should be implement-
ing the policies of the unit, developing
and managing resources, overseeing the
budget, representing units to external
constituencies, and providing vision for
long-range planning. Neither should
be excluded from the other, and trans-
parency and collaboration should be
incorporated in all aspects of university
governance.
Do we have shared governance at
UF?
In some units, yes. In others, no.
On some matters of academic policy.
yes. In others, no.
Global changes take time. Faculty
at times will fail to rise to the chal-
lenge, especially when governance
detracts from teaching and research.
And administration at times will Fail
to realize that faculty input can lead to
beer results.
Shared governance only works if we
all take ownership of the university's
mission. It depends on all constituen-
cies sitting at the table and resolving
differences in good faith and with
true collaboration Faculty must assert
their right to participate but they also
must prove that they can put UF's best
interests before their own.
I have no doubt our faculty can do
that.

RTS bus routes make on-campus travel a breeze


It's early in the morning. You hop on a bus
headed for the University of Florida campus,
where you work or attend classes. At the end
of the day, you board another bus leaving
campus that will take you home.
The life of a commuter can be much
more complex than that simple back
and forth. And in that complexity, the
commuter's life can be made much less
complicated.
For example, did you know that
throughout the day buses are constantly
running across campus that could take you
to a meeting, an appointment or even to
lunch and then back to work again?
Of the 33 bus routes operated by Re-
gional Transit System throughout Gaines-
ville and Alachua County, nine are specifi-
cally dedicated to serving the UF campus.
Buses on campus generally run every nine
to 12 minutes from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Thirteen of the 47 open seats are for
on-campus residence hall representatives.
The remaining seats are for representatives
of students living off-campus and other on-

based on where a student lives.

Community Campaign director leaving after 13 years of success


In the 14 years Jim Morgan has been
director of business services at the Univer-
sity of Florida, he has overseen a number
of high-profile projects from negotiating
contracts with Pepsi and Starbucks to
revamping Gator Dining Services. Perhaps
one of Morgan's biggest projects has been
one that is also closest to his heart: the UF
Community Campaign.
"I think they gave it to me because I was
such a pain," Morgan said of his involvement
with the fundraising campaign. "I was always
right there with suggestions and ideas."
Morgan has been executive director of
the Community Campaign since 1993.
In that time, he has been instrumental in
helping to raise close to $10 million to
aid nonprofit agencies that serve Alachua
County and its surrounding areas. In 2005,
the campaign topped $1 million for the first
time in its 14-year history. This year, Mor-
gan said the goal is to raise $1.2 million.
The Community Campaign is nearly a

aid and culminates in September and Octo-
ber when UF faculty and staff are asked for
pledges. Employees may choose to donate to
one or more of the 79 area nonprofit agen-
cies whose applications were approved by
Morgan and his steering and planning com-
mittees. Donations may be made through
payroll deduction or by check, cash or direct
bill, with the funds being paid out to agen-
cies on.a quarterly basis.
This year's campaign will be the last with
Morgan at the helm. In mid-January, Morgan
will retire to Homosassa, where he and his
wife of 35 years, Sharon, have built a river
house. Morgan said he hopes retirement will
find him golfing, fishing and spending time
with his new granddaughter Taryn.
He also has a new pet project an Aus-
tralian Labradoodle (Labrador-poodle mix)
puppy by the name of Foster.
As for the Community Campaign, it is
uncertain who will take the reigns.
"No one is really sure where UFCC is
going to go in January," he said. "It will be
interesting to see what happens."

Real estate research
earns UF high rankings
The fall 2006 issue of Real Estate
Economics ranks the University of Florida
the eighth-most influential university in
real estate research and cites David Ling,
UF's William D. Hussey Professor of
Real Estate, the seventh-most influential
individual real estate researcher. The rank-
ings are based on how often UF research
is reported in leading real estate journals.
The latest rankings cover publications from
2000 to 2004 and place UF in front of
such well-known real estate programs as the
University of Wisconsin and the University
of Southern California.
Newsletter focuses

The Information Technology Security
Team now has a publication for faculty and
staff that aims to promote a more secure com-

College GameDay's SEC coverage has diminished


* ESPN GAMEDAY HOST CHRIS FOWLER DIS-
AGREES WITH HIS COMPANY'S APPROACH.

By DAVID CHAUNCEY
Alligator Writer

For more than a decade, ESPN's "College GameDay" has
been a staple in the landscape of college football. The weekly
live show broadcasts from a specific campus, causing legions
of loyal fans to wake at sunrise on crisp fall mornings and
stand behind the production set. The crowd members cheer on
their beloved team on national television with humorous signs
and chants. The tradition continues to this day just not on
Southeastern Conference campuses.
Chris Fowler, host of "GameDay," wrote the following in a
recent ESPN.com column:
"For 13 seasons, the locations of the GameDay road shows
have been editorial decisions based on the college football
landscape. The basic principle was to (almost) always come
from the site of the 'biggest game,' or occasionally, 'the best
story.' Now, the philosophy has been rethought by upper
management."
Fowler raised concerns that higher-ups in the company are
now dictating the destination of "GameDay" based on which
games the sister network, ABC, is broadcasting, rather.than
seeking out the day's premier game. ESPN even bailed on a
scheduled trip to Knoxville for the 2006 UF-Tennessee game
and instead broadcast the Nebraska-USC game, a somewhat
lopsided matchup, considering the other games occurring that
Saturday.
"For the first time," Fowler said, "the competitive landscape
of football programming is (not) a frequent consideration.
Serving the needs of ABC's new prime-time package of games
is often a priority."
In 1994, the SEC left ABC to sign a multimillion-dollar
contract with CBS, giving the network rights to its college
football games. Four years later, the SEC and CBS reached a
new extension. The deal allowed CBS to broadcast the SEC
Championship Game starting in 2001. The title game had
previously aired on ABC. This severed all ties between the two
networks. ESPN and ABC, however, are sister networks owned
by The Walt Disney Company.
An added twist to "GameDay" this season has only hurt
the show's prospects of broadcasting SEC games. ABC has
joined forces with ESPN in its broadcast of its Saturday night
primetime game. "GameDay" analyst Kirk Herbstreit is part
of the primetime game's current TV lineup, along with Brent
Musberger, Bob Davie and Lisa Salters. Because ABC does not
broadcast SEC games, it is more convenient for "GameDay"
to broadcast from the same campus of the prime-time game

ESPN's College GameDay crew (Chris Fowler, Lee Corso and Kirk Herbstreit) share a laugh at the Ohio State-Texas
game on Sept. 9. GameDay's coverage of SEC games has dwindled in recent years due to several factors.


Herbstreit is a part of.
But despite this reality, ESPN said Fowler's comments were
a bit off base.
"Lee, Kirk and I have no say in decisions on
GameDay's location ... I am mainly concerned
with the show's specific legacy not the global
college football landscape.
Chris Fowler
ESPN College GameDay host

"ESPN looks at a lot of aspects when picking the site of
College GameDay, including compelling story lines, something
unique and other multiple factors," said ESPN spokesperson
Mike Humes. "ESPN does not take into consideration which
network a game is being played on. GameDay will continue to


originate from SEC sites in the future."
However, Humes did concede that, "The ABC Primetime
game is another factor in the decision-making process this
season."
CBS had no comment on the situation. That was not the case
.with Fowler.
"Please know this: Lee, Kirk and I have no say in decisions
on GameDay's location," he continued in his column. "But as
host of the show for 17 years, I am mainly concerned with the
show's specific legacy, not the global college football land-
,scape."
Responded Humes: "Chris [Fowler] is entitled to his opin-
ion. It may not be completely accurate. GameDay is a college
football show. There is no deliberation past that."
Fowler ended his column by providing his feelings about
the SEC and its fans.
"I would truly miss broadcasting from Gainesville,
Knoxville, Athens, Tuscaloosa, Auburn and Baton Rouge."


Bowers named SEC Defensive Player of the Week

Bowers was named the Southeastern Bowers collected seven block assists in three


Conference Defensive Player of the Week
on Monday.
The honor is the first for Bowers, and she
became the third UF player in 2006 to earn
SEC recognition, following junior opposite
hitter Angie McGinnis and freshman libero
Elyse Cusack.
Bowers averaged 2.83 blocks per game in
a pair of UF sweeps of Auburn and Alabama


games, and on Sunday, she became the first
UF player in nearly two years
/to reach double figures in
Vfil alr blocks after collecting three
solos and seven assists against
the Crimson Tide.
In the first game against Alabama,
Bowers became the first player at UF since
the advent of rally scoring in 2002 to register


three solo blocks in one game, and her total
of five blocks in game one was just one shy
of the school's record.

DEFENDER HONORED: Gators sophomore
defender Liz Ruberry is a member of the
TopDrawer Soccer National Team of the
Week and also picked up the SoccerFLA.com
Player of the Week honor Monday, the first
such honors of Ruberry's career.
She was the first UF player to receive the
awards this season.


Ruberry turned in a goal and two assists
in UF's two wins in the opening weekend of
Southeastern Conference play.
Ruberry played a part in UF's first two
goals in an eventual 3-1 win at No. 17
Auburn on Sept. 22.
She served up the corer kick in the 15th
minute that freshman Ashlee Elliott headed
in to score UF's opening goal.
Later in the half, Ruberry's 40-yard free
kick scored her second goal of the season.
In Sunday's 4-1 win at Alabama, Ruberry
assisted on junior Stacy Bishop's goal at 13:
22 to give the Gators their second goal.


Tackle Antwine makes jump during Thomas' indefinite suspension


NOTES, from page 27

the freshman tallied eight catches
for 145 yards and a touchdown and
eight carries for 83 yards in his first
three games.
"We have a goal to be the fast-
est team in college football," Meyer
said. "He helps that goal. I'm al-
most positive we're going to have


him. We're going to be smart. If I
get a great Wednesday [practice]
out of him, we're good."

ANTWINE TIME: If any good came
out of Marcus Thomas' indefinite
suspension, it might have been the
emergence of freshman Brandon
Antwine.
The Garland, Texas, native
played for the first time this season
as a reserve at defensive tackle,


.f though he did
Snot register a
tackle.
"He's coming
on," Meyer said.
S- "He actually
Splayed very well
Antwine when he was in
the game. He'll
play this week. ... He's going to
play more and more."


Meyer said there was no update
on Thomas' status for this week,
leaving the possibility of another
rotation on the defensive line.
Against Kentucky, Ray
McDonald played both end and
tackle, as Joe Cohen, Clint McMillan
and Derrick Harvey teamed to re-
place Thomas.
Fellow freshman Brandon
Spikes also played late, racking


up two tackles and breaking up a
pass.

UF title hopes hinge on four games

By ANTONIO GONZALEZ
Alligator Staff Writer
agonzalez@alligator.org

A Southeastern Conference championship.
National championship.
A season better than 9-3.
None will be achieved if the Gators don't
succeed during their next four games one of
the toughest stretches in their 100-year history.
UF will clash with Alabama, No. 2 Aubuin,
No. 9 LSU and No. 10 Georgia, respectively,
during the upcoming weeks.
These games will likely define UF's season.
The only other ranked opponent the Gators'
play is Fflorida State, and that game has no bear-
ing on an SEC championship.
However, despite the daunting task at hand,
the Gators have downplayed the harrowing
stretch. When asked Monday how important it
willbe to their season, players and coaches alike
produced the same answer: "You have to take it
one game at a time." V
The answers came in different forms.
Center Steve Rissler said: "It's not our focus.
We're just taking it game-by-game. Right now .
we're just preparing for Alabama. We're not
even thinking about the next three."
Linebacker Brandon Siler said: "We can't do
anything but think aboutAlabama."
Wide receiver Jemalle Cornelius added:
"Win. You play to win the game. So, I mean,
that's our mentality"
Coach Urban Meyer got in on the action as .
well.
When a reporter asked Monday about the
stretch's bearing on national title hopes, Meyer ""'
responded by saying, "That's not one of our
goals."
The coach later repeated, "We playAlabama. --
We play Alabama."
Ironically, only quarterback Trn Tebow
answered the question with a semi-honest
answer.
"It's everything," Tebow said. "It's huge.
You got to win." Tim Casey/ Alligator Staff

Harvin close

THE FRESHMAN SHOULD BE
READY FOR ALABAMA.

By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
nzaccardi@alligator.org

Consider it a near-lock that Percy Harvin
will get in for more than one play against
Alabama on Saturday.
The freshman wide receiver, who contin-
ues to recover from a high left ankle sprain, is
on track to make a bigger impact against the
Crimson Tide than he did in UF's 26-7 win
versus Kentucky.
"I think he's good [to
play this week]," UF coach
Urban Meyer said. "We
want him. We need him in
That lineup."
Last week, Meyer said
.that Harvin would be a
XW A game-time decision against
Harvin the Wildcats after working
out prior to the game.
Harvin dressed and ran once for 2 yards
in the first quarter. Meyer pulled him out
after his one play, saying the receiver was at
80 percent.
Still, without Harvin, No. 5 UF (4-0, 2-0
Southeastern Conference) had little troublP
dissecting the Kentucky defense.
But the re-addition of Harvin would give
a welcome boost to UF's team speed and add
an intangible that has gone missing for two
games.

Cliche not so boring if Gators can survive brutal upcoming month

Every time I hear a
coach or athlete say those words,
it makes me cringe.
In terms of bad sports cliches, it
ranks right up there with the likes
of: "This was a total team effort,"
"They had more heart then they
did" or "We gave 110 percent out

But this week, I'm going in a


different direction.
Because one week at a time is
exactly the way the Gators need to
approach things.
If. you've been living under
a rock and haven't checked the

a stretch of games that makes

it's fine for fans to speculate how
UF might do during that four-
game stretch that includes home
dates with Alabama and LSU,
a road tilt with Auburn and the
"Don't call it the Cocktail Party"
game with rival Georgia.
For the players, however, that
worn-out cliche holds true.

MEN'S COLLEGE BASKETBALL

Vitale agrees to extension


ESPN men's college basketball analyst Dick Vitale told the Independent Florida
Alligator on Monday that he intends to sign a seven-year contract extension.


By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org

Seven more years, baby!
Dick Vitale, ESPN's famed men's college
basketball analyst, told the Independent
Florida Alligator on Monday that he will
sign a seven-year contract extension with
the network that will begin this upcoming
2006-07 season.
The extension he signed in 2004 would
have ran out this year.
"I feel so flattered and honored and
thrilled that I have seven more years con-
tractually, and who knows what will happen
after that," said Vitale, 67, from his Sarasota
home via phone. "You never know with
health issues and what else could possibly
happen, but I do know I feel great. I still have
the juices flowing. I still have that excitement
for being on campus. I still have the thrill for
wanting to be with all the kids."
Made famous by his charismatic person-
ality and idiosyncratic catchphrases, Vitale
has not lost any of his spunk. But there is not
exactly a glut of analysts who help broadcast
sporting events at such an age.
However, it is Vitale's unique drive that
still separates him from his peers.
He continues to partake in numerous
charitable causes and participates in a laun-
dry list of motivational engagements on a
daily basis.
Vitale attributes his vitality to a diet sub-
sisting of fish, chicken and pasta. He does
not smoke or drink. He also harps on the fact
that he plays tennis and takes walks on the
beach on a daily basis.
However, should his health falter at any
point during his contract extension, Vitale
will be perfectly fine walking away.
"If I wake up in the morning," he said,
"and I look at my wife, [Lorraine], and say,


'You know hon I have no desire to get on
a plane and keep going to these schools and
campuses. My body just can't take it and I'm
worn out' I will be the first to call the press
conference and say, 'The party's over.' But
right now, that's the furthest thing from my
mind. I feel like [my age] is just a number."
Sponsored by Accent, Vitale will speak
at the O'Connell Center on Oct. 12 at 8 p.m.
The engagement will be in conjunction with
Midnight Madness, which takes place the
following day.
"I still have the juices flowing. I
still have the excitement for being
on campus. I still have the thrill of
wanting to be with all the kids."
Dick Vitale
ESPN men's college basketball analyst

Vitale holds Gainesville dear to his heart.
Terri, one of his two daughters, has worked
at Shands and gave birth to Vitale's grand-
daughter, Sydney Nicole, in Gainesville.
Vitale regularly commuted to Gainesville
for several years after the birth.
He also cherishes the UF men's basketball
program.
However, the analyst does have some
choice words for Gator Nation's decision to
boo starting quarterback Chris Leak in favor
of backup Tim Tebow against Kentucky.
"Take it easy on Chris Leak," said Vitale,
who coached the University of Detroit men's
basketball team to a 78-30 record in the '70s.
"That kid has busted his gut, they're No. 5 in
the nation and he was at home. That's totally
uncalled for. He's a kid and he's trying to
represent the school. You want to cheer the
other kid fine, but don't boo a college kid.
In fact, I think I'm going to add something
about that on my Web site."


MOTION, from page 27

One game at a time.
And for once, I agreed with
every word they said.
Sometimes when you
square off with an opponent,
you're just flat-out better than
the team across the line.
UF was better than
Southern Mississippi and
Central Florida, but those
were just dress rehearsals for
the main event.
The curtain has now
dropped on the real season,
which, for better or worse,


will define how the 2006
Gators will be remembered
- whether it's a return to na-
tional prominence or they're
destined to once again be an
SEC also-ran.
And it all starts with one
game: this week against an
Alabama team that humiliated
UF 31-3 a year ago.
Focus shouldn't be a prob-
lem there. LSU comes to town
next, another team that took
down the Gators last year.
Then comes an Auburn
team that's probably going to
be undefeated, followed by a
week off before the Georgia


game.
Four teams, four games
and four different things to
focus on.
So in reality, it should be
easy for the Gators to take
it one game at a time when
they're faced with weekly
exams that will test how good
they really are.
And if they don't take it
one game at a time, give it 110
percent, show more heart and
put in total team efforts, they'll
leave the fans with another old
clich that none of them want
to hear:
Wait 'til next year.

Gloom or success ahead for Gators


FOOTBALL from page 27


trip to Atlanta for the SEC Championship Game,
not to mention a shot at that elusive national title,
they will have to perform well during the next
month.
Nc'ther team in the nation will face as many
ranked opponents in as short of span.
And given UF's recent history against them, it's
a grim task.
The Gators lost to Alabama and LSU last sea-
son. Auburn has now become a national champi-
onship contender. And Georgia is always a tough
rivalry.
So the task at hand doesn't appear light.
Th focus the Gators have at least appeared
to show toward this week's game was absent last


season. But just like last year, UF entered the 2005
Alabama game 4-0 and with momentum on their
side.
However, they were dominated 31-3 in
Tuscaloosa, Ala.
The memory of Alabama players and fans do-
ing the Gator Chomp and throat-slashing gestures
in Tuscaloosa is one the Gators won't soon forget.
"It was real bitter," Cornelius said about the
taunting."It's definitely motivation."
Motivation has now led to concentration. That
is, only on UF's next opponent each week.
However, any success the Gators attain this
season will likely come from their play during the
next four games. But no matter how intimidating
this portion of the schedule may be, the Gators,
at least for now, are just taking it "one game at a
time."


Late in UF's 1971 game against Miami, the
Gators led 45-8. Quarterback John Reaves
I was just 15 yards shy of breaking the NCAA's
Career passing yardage mark, held at the time
by Stanford's Jim Plunkett.
Problem was, the Gators didn't have the ball.
So with a little more than a minute left in the
contest, UF coach Doug Dickey ordered all of
his defenders to fall to the ground so that the
Hurricanes could score and the Gators could
get the ball back so Reaves could attempt to
break the record.
In the final series of his career, Reaves got
the yards he needed on a 15-yard completion
to Carlos Alvarez. Reaves finished his career
with 7,549 passing yards, which has since
been eclipsed by five Gators.
Miami coach Fran Curci was furious after
the game, saying that a coach who allowed a
team to score simply to get the ball back had
no class, and he refused to shake Dickey's
hand after the game.
"It was the worst thing I've ever seen in
football," Curci said. "I thought a lot of Doug
Dickey and always admired him. But tonight
I lost all respect for the man. What he did
shows absolutely no class."
