Interim VP wins race
By JOEY CHINDAMO and JESSICA DaSILVA
Amid clouds of cigar smoke, Student Government execu-
tives celebrated the Swamp Party's dominating victory in the
Fall election early this morning.
After 7,187 votes were cast about a 14 percent turnout
- Tuesday and Wednesday, Swamp Party candidate Arturo
Armand was announced the newest Student Body vice presi-
dent. Armand has spent about a month serving as interim vice
The Swamp Party, which already controls SG's executive
branch, took the majority of the 47 Student Senate seats up for
grabs in the election Wednesday night. The party won all but
two of the Senate seats.
In order to win the vice presidency, a candidate had to earn
more than 50 percent of the student vote. Armand won 61
percent. Independent candidate Nina Dejong came in second
place behind Armand with almost 22 percent of the vote.
Although Armand delivered
Student Government his three opponents a resound-
ElectionS ing defeat, he expressed surprise
at his victory after Supervisor of
Elections Brian Aungst announced it.
"I don't know what to say, y'all," Armand shouted to the
crowd during his speech. "Thank you so much. We did awe-
some out there."
As Armand addressed the crowd, newly elected student
senators celebrated their own victories.
Sen. Josh Weiss, who serves as the Senate's No. 2 official,
hugged his fellow party members and jumped around outside
the Orange and Brew. Weiss won his seat with Swamp.
When asked how he felt about his victory, Weiss said "ex-
hilarated, vindicated, fulfilled, proud."
"I felt good, but I couldn't have imagined this good," he
The party ran 46 Senate candidates. Each Senate race is de-
termined by a simple majority of votes.

Swamp Party vice presidential candidate Arturo Armand celebrates with his parents after his victory is announced
early this morning outside the Orange and Brew.
Although most of the winning candidates hailed from
Swamp, Action had a couple of victors as well.
The Action Party won two of the 40 seats it competed for.
The Pants Party claimed no seats.
"I think it's a victory," said Bruce Haupt, who ran for
Student Body vice president with Pants. "To all the apathetic
students who didn't vote, they still didn't vote, so we won."

Common sense best defense in spate of iPod thefts

"As soon as I opened my car and saw my
window, I kind of freaked out," he said.
His iPod and Maul Jim sunglasses were
both stolen from his truck, which was parked

Barron Martin, 20, had an experience simi-

had been broken into and his iPod stolen the
morning after the UF football game against the
University of Tennessee.
Martin, a health science major, said he
parked his car at the Alpha Tau Omega.

game. He said he was surprised to see his ve-

His 30-gigabyte iPod was missing, along

He was particularly angry about the sun-

Scientists, friends mourn death of wildlife activist
By DOMINICK TAO
Tirtha Man Maskey, a UF graduate,
scientist, father and Nepal's top wildlife of-
ficial, died-in a helicopter crash in Nepal on
Saturday. The crash killed all 24 passengers.
Maskey's death, his friends said, is a
tragedy not only for his family, but also UF,
Nepal and the global wildlife conservation
"He was in the top echelon of the conserva-
tion business," said H. Franklin Percival, a UF
wildlife conservation professor and Maskey's
longtime friend and adviser. .
In 1978, Maskey received a master's de-
gree from the University of Michigan, and he
earned a doctorate in wildlife management
from UF in 1979, according to his obituary on
the World Wildlife Fund's Web site.
Before coming to the United States, Maskey
made his name as a warden in Nepal's Royal
Chitwan National Park, Percival said.
"He stopped the killing of tiger and rhi-
noceros," Percival said. "To cut that off, he
didn't make any friends. He had to have like
a 200-man complement from the king's army
to protect him. That's an astounding thing for
somebody in the '70s to do."
Maskey's research at UF focused on pro-
tecting the gharial, a relative of the alligator.
"He chose to come here because there were
a great many people at UF working on alliga-
tors and crocodiles," Percival said.
Maskey took his know-how back to
Nepal, where he became the director general
-- of Nepal's Department of
National Parks and Wildlife
--"He was running the
.entire wildlife program
S.. for his country," said Mel
j' Sunquist, a UF wildlife
ii .ecology professor who
Maskey worked alongside Maskey
in Nepal for three years.
"He was a field guy," Sunquist said. "He
was out for months at a time. He stayed at
field camps. That's a dedication to what he
Radah Mali, Maskey's friend who knew
him when he studied in Gainesville, said he
was a family man who loved doing research.
The downed helicopter was a chartered
Russian MI-17 bound for a local airport. Other
prominent conservationists were also aboard,
The BBC reported Monday that the heli-
copter party was returning from a landmark
ceremony to hand over the Kanchenjunga
Conservation Area from the government to
the local community.
"He went doing what he loved best," Mali
said. "We can't forget what a tragic, cata-
strophic thing this is for that little nation."
Maskey is survived by his wife, two chil-
dren and a species of frog that bears his name.

Man shot, killed
By JAMES RIGNEY
Police are looking for an armed suspect in a murder,

Alesten not going back to jail," Kameg said.
murder suspect Kameg said a group of men were
arguing in a parking lot near 2500 NW

Garrison left at this point because he was concerned he would
be shot at, Kameg said. Police believe Garrison was shot and
fatally wounded as soon as he returned to the scene.
Police believe Alesten is armed and dangerous, and they
urge anyone who spots Alesten to call 911 immediately.

Phone calls reach out to freshmen
By KENDALL M. SHARP
Alligator Contributing Writer
UF freshmen shouldn't be
creeped out if a complete stranger
calls them this week. In fact, they
should count on it.
Freshman Phone-A-Thon kicked
off Monday and will continue
through Friday as volunteers try
to contact every one of UF's 6,700
freshmen, said Jonathan Keenan,
the event's chair and a member of
The purpose of Freshman Phone-
A-Thon is to check in with students
and find out how their semesters
are going, Keenan said.
Freshmen often feel excluded
from various aspects of college life,
"We try to include groups of
students (like freshmen) at UF
that may otherwise feel left out,"
Keenan said. "We want to let them
know they are welcome here at the
University of Florida, and we want
them to have a good time along
with everyone else."
The Phone-A-Thon gives stu-
dents the opportunity to ask the
volunteers questions they have
about student life, the university or
involvement on campus.
"It's really rewarding to talk
to these kids and for them
to ask me questions."
Freshman Phone-A-Thon volunteer
Although the volunteers make
every effort to contact each indi-
vidual freshman, Keenan is realistic
about the number of students the
callers will actually reach.
Only about 10 to. 20 percent of
freshmen will speak with a Phone-
A-Thon volunteer, Keenan said.
However, he is still optimistic about
the overall success of the event.
"The ones that we do reach really
appreciate it," Keenan said. "It can
Cie2: .e, ll /...
really help them."
If students answer the phone,
a volunteer will ask if their classes
are going well and if they are using
their advisers as resources.
Volunteers won't reach all fresh-
men by phone, but they will contact
all by e-mail to inform them of the
Phone-A-Thon and to ask how first
semesters are going.
Freshman Phone-A-Thon is an
annual Fall event sponsored by
Members of other student
organizations, including Florida
Cicerones, Ideal and Circle K
International, also volunteer.
Calls for the Phone-A-Thon are
made from the Dean of Students
Office in Peabody Hall between 5:-
30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.
Sophomore Samantha Reho is a
peer mentor at Trusler Hall and also
volunteers for the Phone-A-Thon.
"Its really rewarding to talk to
these kids and for them to ask me
questions," Reho said.

Swamp win more of the
same for students
So the Swamp Party wins again. Big surprise. Call us
cynical, but we saw this coming a month ago, when
Student Government decided to use paper ballots.
Sure, more than 80 percent of the student body wanted
true online voting so did we but then, how would
Greeks get their "I VOTED" stickers?
Come back to your fraternity without one of those, and
you're liable to spend a night in the Sigma Phi Epsilon
dungeon. It's cold down there!
But, all jokes aside, congratulations to Swamp vice
presidential candidate Arturo Armand. Who would
have thought a fraternity president, Hispanic Student
Association president and close personal friend of Student
Body President John Boyles could ever ascend to such
heights? Truly a victory for the little guy.
Our sincerest- condolences go out to independent
candidate Nina Dejong the Alligator's choice for vice
president and Action Party candidate Chris Chase.
They both campaigned hard and made some great t-shirts.
Nina, God bless her, might have actually accomplished
something. But we guess it just wasn't meant to be. Better
luck next time, guys.
Well, probably not. But you know what we mean.
And let's not forget Bruce Haupt, the visionary behind
the Pants Party. He only took 444 votes, but for a joke can-
didate, that's a pretty respectable showing.
His appointment duly ratified by the electorate,
Armand will assume control make that "resume con-
trol" of SG's Cabinet this week. We didn't support his
campaign, but the Alligator wishes him the best of luck.
SG has a lot to do in the coming weeks and months, and
without a strong leader at the helm, the Cabinet won't be
able to keep up. We hope Armand is up to the task.
He'll certainly have some help. Swamp took almost all
the available Senate seats, both on campus and off. Hume
Hall, not surprisingly, was one of the few Action holdouts
Syou know those honors types.
We withheld our endorsement in this Fall's Senate races
because neither party seemed to care about the most im-
portant issues tuition, scholarships and the College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences. All we can do now is hope that
the newly minted student senators, Swamp and Action
candidates alike, make good on those last-minute addi-
tions to their platforms the ones about "fair tuition"
Sand the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
We're glad our pet causes made a cameo, however
brief, in Swamp's campaign literature. But now, with the
election behind them, Armand and Swamp's new legisla-
tors need to do more than just talk.
They can start by firming up their positions. Vague
promises to demand "the necessary resources" in CLAS
are OK during a campaign in fact, they're perfect but
if Swamp actually wants to govern, they'll need something
more. Like a plan, for starters.
The Alligator is no friend of the Swamp Party. That's
no secret. But we hope the winners of this week's election
will listen as we present the concerns of ordinary students.
They owe the student body that much.
Most of all, we're just happy our long, campuswide
nightmare is over. Finally, innocent students can walk
Turlington Plaza unmolested, with no T-shirts, stickers
or flyers foisted on them. The preacher will still call us

Paper must do more than just criticize
hey say the press is the watchdog of government,
but here at UF, the watchdog has become a whip-
persnapper. Lately, all I've heard from the Alligator
is shrill yelping, the kind you hear coming from Paris
Hilton's handbag not the dependable woof of the
watchdog for the public interest.
For all its political correctness, the editorial board has
shown little political consciousness of late.
Its negative, defeatist message went something like
this: Voting is important. But there is no point in voting for
Student Government, because there is nothing and no one
worth voting for. Oh, and voting isn't cool.
The problem is that even if SG sucks, it will always
be here so the Alligator might as well try to shape it.
The day when nothing is worth voting for is the day de-
mocracy dies. Standing by while other students take your
lunch money, which according to the Alligator SG
does with your Activity & Service Fee, doesn't make you
cool. It makes you a chump.
The question is, does the press have a responsibility to
endorse parties or. platforms? Journalists disagree.
Al Neuharth, founder of USA Today, reportedly said
editorial endorsements lead to reader perception of bias in
other areas of the paper. But readers often look to the pa-
per for advice, especially in local or state elections where
the candidates are more obscure.
Here at UF, many students say they don't have the time
or desire to learn the nuances of SG candidates and is-
sues. That's where a strong press comes in rejecting the
impulse to be an ineffectual naysayer and welcoming the
responsibility of the truth sayer.
In years past, the Alligator has duly rubber-stamped
the non-Greek, opposition party. But this time, for the sec-
ond straight semester, it abstained. I respect the paper's
decision not to endorse a particu-
lar party, but if neither the Swamp
Party's nor the Action Party's
platform was good enough, I sug-
--gest the Alligator promote its own
platform on behalf of the student
Ombudsman Granted, Swamp's platform
email@example.com was ridiculously vague. And
Action's appealed more to instant
gratification than to good sense.
That's why the Alligator should offer the newly elected
members of SG its own suggestions. After all, who knows
better what students want?
Swamp tried to corral students into forums to get
their input, but the Alligator gets feedback every day
from students who are far from apathetic. Letters to the
editor overwhelmingly show that students care about
tuition, scholarship cuts and the College of Liberal Arts
and Sciences. They want a Top 10 university, not a Top 10
The Alligator criticized both parties for making prom-
ises they can't keep. Now it's time the Alligator did some
homework. I challenge the editors to find out what lies
within the purview of SG. Can the Student Senate really
affect what happens in Tigert Hall or the Gainesville City
Commission? What about in Tallahassee?
One editor told me that, while the Alligator doesn't
sway students' votes, it can help set the agenda for SG. In
other words, when the Alligator talks, SG listens. So talk,
guys. If this Fall's parties and platforms were so bad, why
not offer students a glimpse of something better?

Just when you thought there was no reai
son to be proud of your generation, the
news hits: There are now more televi-
sions than people in the average American
home. And you thought we'd only be re-

But hey, we need those TVs. Without
them, we couldn't maintain our four hours
and 35 minutes of daily tube time.
That's right. We spend a quarter of our
waking lives seated and staring straight
ahead, our expressionless faces lit by the
flicker of the latest sitcom, drama or soap
.opera. Thirty-two long hours a week.
And that's just sitting-down-on-the-
couch, mind-totally-turned-off time. We
spend even more time eight hours a day!

eat a meal7talk on the phone or read a mag-

toilet. Come to think of it, even that's not

five or 10 channels when you knew some-

TVs popping- up everywhere, it's getting
more and more inescapable.
When Imoved into a condo, my room-
mate and I decided against getting cable.
Why spend $80 a month on something that
will just waste our time? We both grew up
with cable, and though we never depended
on it, we were both a little interested to see
how the transition would be.
You might think I'm exaggerating, but
quitting cable was truly liberating. It's

After Katrina, New Orleans needs Saints, Superdome
When I read Wednesday's editorial concerning the
reopening of the Louisiana Superdome a year after
Hurricane Katrina, it was obvious to me that the author
has never been through a storm of Katrina's magnitude.
Anyone who had would know that the return of profes-
sional football is just what the citizens of New Orleans
need at this point in the rebuilding process.
The Saints' win on Monday night restored hope and a
sense of normalcy to a city that lost both in the wake of
Katrina. Monday Night Football in New Orleans brought
the city together and reminded its citizens that they too
will eventually overcome the hardships that have been a
part of their lives for more than a year.
Anastasis' charges of racism totally irresponsible
I just finished reading the Alligator's debate on wheth-
er Chris Leak was booed because he's black. Does Louis
Anastasis really think he's breaking down barriers? This
is the worst kind of journalism inventing racism where
it doesn't exist, based on pure speculation and charges
backed up with no empirical data.
It goes without saying that charging students and
"older UF alumni" with racism is a very serious accusa-
tion. The Alligator's decision to stir up controversy for the
sake of controversy itself especially about race is

Marce starts national tour C c I a end ar
By LANE NIESET
After being born in Colombia and raised
in states all over the country, local musi-
cian Marce finally has a place to call home:
Gainesville. The city will serve as her home
base as she heads out on her first national
tour, which began yesterday.
"I talked myself into coming here for all
sorts of reasons," Marce said. "The music
was one of them, because Gainesville is an
incredible music town, but the reality of it
was all Allen."
Allen is the second half I am fasci
of her act, playing the roles ntold stoc
of both bassist and husband, untold store
which make him the perfect higges
addition to the family. M
In February and March mus
of this year, two of Marce's
tunes were each named
VHl's song of the month in the folk cat-
egory. She has also submitted an entry to the
2006 Florida Grammy Showcase.
Music has always been in Marce's blood,
but her first live performance, in front of
an audience of 2,000 people, was actually
nerve-racking and unintended. When the
opening band for an event she was organiz-
ing called and canceled, a friend she had
been playing with suggested that they play.
Although Marce has experience playing
larger venues, she prefers intimate settings.
"I think maybe 90 percent of my music is
the lyrics," she said. "At festivals with 20,000
people it is harder to hear what I am saying
because the music gets lost and people really
can't connect with the lyrics."
Each one of her songs shares its own sto-
ry and conveys some type of message to the
listener, with topics ranging from women's
rights to health care.
"I am fascinated with untold stories," she
said. "That is my biggest thing."
One of her songs, "D is for Denial," is
about domestic violence. She wrote it for
"The Vagina Monologues" and played it at
a performance in Miami.
"For me, the song was more about every-
day women involved in domestic abuse, not
stereotypical domestic abuse," she said.-
She feels that throughout history the
cultural voice has been given to men, and
their story was all that was written. There
wasn't a culture in the past to speak out
about women, but now there finally is.
ated with For this reason, many of the
events that Marce plays at

ce Gainesville Pride support
Ian specific groups or human
rights in general.
"I have an affinity gener-
ally for any sort of organization that pro-
motes individuality and promotes respect
for every human," she said.
During the first week of October she
will be recording the vocals for her second
album, "Think About It," in North Carolina
with producer Karen Kane, who has pro-
duced albums for artists with styles that
Marce admires, such as Tracy Chapman.
"I was sitting there hearing all of my
songs coming together," Marce said. "I
was describing it to someone, saying that
I wasn't maternal in any way, but I do feel
that with each of the songs, I want them to
succeed like children, because you are just so
proud when they grow and blossom."
Her dream is to win a Grammy Award
someday for original soundtrack credit and
have one of her songs in a "Garden State"-
style indie film. At the rate she is going,
anything is possible.

Anyone who has ever dreamed of being

Gainesville, said Colin Hines,
an organizer of the project. Hines hopes the
station will help people get to know each oth-
er through music and the diffusion of ideas.
Bill Bryson, another founder of the sta-
tion, said the response to past attempts at
creating community radio stations confirmed
Gainesville's need for one. In 1995, locals
were given airtime on WAJD-AM, an affiliate
of Kiss 105.3, and received an overwhelming
response. In 1998, Free Radio originated as an
underground radio station. It got into piracy
trouble with the Federal Communications
Commission because it did not have a license
to use the airwaves.
"We noticed how people were willing
to break the law to get their message out,"
No one will have to break the law to share
music and thoughts on Grow Radio. Bryson
hopes the station will have some talk, a lot
of music and whatever else the community
wants. He said the future for Grow Radio
depends on community input.

UF graduate writes about past political turmoil
The Taking of Tigert Hall: Reminiscences
from a Bygone Era
Stanley N. Laham
By SHEM FLEENOR
Thege-ed for Stanley Laham's book, "The
Taking of Tigert Hall," was planted more than
35 years ago when the National Guard mur-
dered four student protesters on the campus
of Kent State University in Ohio.
As a member of the UF chapter of Students
for a Democratic Society, which was part of
the New Left movement, Laham and his col-
leagues felt that the Nixon administration
had illegally and immorally opened two new
fronts in the Vietnam War.
"They started a war in Cambodia, and they
went to war with the student protesters."
Laham and his older brother were the
first Haitians to attend UE He received his
bachelor's degree in political science in 1970,
and later earned his doctorate in immunology
and medical microbiology.
The book idea picked up steam in August
2004, after he tagged along with the oldest of
his two daughters at Preview.
He was stunned by the cultural paradigm
shift that had taken place since his first day on
campus in 1967.
"The Reitz Union was overrun by fast food
restaurants," he said. "The student body had
voted to allow corporate entities on campus.
It was such an anathema. "We took
Outside the Reitz Union, we
were inundated by people Hall and
passing out fliers, most of sity Presid(
which were advertisements O'Connell a
for corporate products like cell denm
phones, iPods and cars."
When Laham was a student Stanley
at UF, fliers were handed out, author, U
but they were more often than
not a call to arms. The fliers urged students
to participate in the anti-war and civil rights
"I can't believe the apathy and mindless
consumerism that has become equated with
democracy," Laham grumbled. "Americans
think that since they can shoot their mouth off
on the comer that they are free."
His piercing brown eyes gaze out at a cul-
tural landscape where other countries have
affordable housing, free health care and edu-
,cation. Yet America is devoid of such things.
He reflected on the murders of great men
such as John and Robert Kennedy and Martin
Luther King Jr: Each of these men was a threat
to the status quo.
He saw the Kent State killings the same
SDS was outraged by the dubious commis-
ver Tigert sion hearings, which they said
were little more than public
ve univer- relations stunts.to give the illu-
nt Stephen sion of justice being served.
ist of seven SDS was infuriated when
nds." no National Guardsmen were
ever held accountable for the
.Laham murder of the four students
graduate who were doing nothing more
than exercising their First
"The whole thing was filmed, yet no one
was ever convicted," Laham lamented.
He and his SDS colleagues were deter-
mined to take the country back from those
who they believed were destroying the
American ideal of liberty.
"We took over Tigert Hall and gave uni-
versity President Stephen O'Connell a list of
seven demands," he said.
,The demands included that UF be tempo-
rarily dosed in order to protest the slaying at
Kent State. SDS also demanded the removal of
ROTC from campus and the disarmament of
the campus police.
Though six of the seven demands were
never met, perhaps the most universally im-
portant demand was: UF halted biological and
chemical weapons research shortly after SDS
annexed Tigert Hall.
In hindsight, Laham's only regret is that
SDS vilified O'Connell. It wasn't until Laham
started doing research for the book that he
learned O'Connell was a champion for the
anti-war students and teachers.
"If he was alive today I'd thank him,"
Laham said remorsefully.
The ist chapter of "The Taking of Tigert
Hall" is dedicated to O'Connell. It allowed
Laham to purge his conscience of vilifying a
man worthy of his respect.
The book is not merely an apology; it is a
sobering warning to the current generation of
"I wanted to give readers an idea of how
intense our commitment was to make the
world a better place," he said. "I hope the
book helps jump-start some students on cam-
pus to become more active. The torch has been
passed to your generation."

On Wednesday, Meyer
wasn't quite as optimistic.
"He's not ready," Meyer
said. "He is probably out."
Wilson fractured his right
ankle prior to the season, but
he is almost fully recovered.
"I've been out there with
the training staff," Wilson said.
"They have been trying to keep
me in shape, but it has been a
hard time doing that."
Wilson needs to shake off
some of the rust from not play-
ing this season before he will
be ready to return to the lineup
full time, Meyer said.
When Wilson does return,
he is expected to replace Drew
Miller at guard, with Miller
shifting to .tackle, replacing

But unfortunately for Hetland,
he is missing the big ones, too.
He's only attempted two field
goals through four games, both of
which were against Tennessee and
both of which weren't converted.
In addition, he missed a pair of
extra points in the first half against
Kentucky last week, prompting
Meyer to say that no one on the
kicking team's job was safe.
Hetland was held out of practice
Monday and Tuesday to rest his
kicking leg's sore groin. However,
he converted all five field goals he

But you start missing those

"Hetland's going to kick. He
did a good job today," Meyer said.
"He only kicked five, but he made
Apparently, one of the missed
extra points against Kentucky
wasn't Hetland's fault. Meyer said
the team had gotten an official
ruling that the first try should
have resulted in a penalty. Meyer
claims a Kentucky defender made
contact with UF snapper James
The other miss, however, was
simply due to a low kick. That
miss put Hetland on notice once
Meyer made his proclamation
about his job being in jeopardy.
"When I don't perform as well
as I want to, I always feel like I
could lose my job," Hetland said.
"I'm just going to go out there and

Hetland's best was more than
good enough in 2005, when he
converted 38 of 40 extra points
and 13 of 16 field goals.
He was named second-team
All-Southeastern Conference, and
Meyer rewarded him by putting
him on scholarship for his senior
He was even placed on the
watch list for the Lou Groza
Award, which is awarded to the
nation's best kicker.
Thus far, however, it's been a
season of struggles most notably
a habit of kicking the ball low that
makes extra points easier to block.
Hetland said he has corrected this.

Big Easy still needs help
T three days ago, Monday Night Football came to New
Orleans and we saw things that didn't seem possible a
We saw more than 70,000 fans cheering the New Orleans
Saints in the Superdome the place that had become a shelter to
thousands seeking refuge from Hurricane Katrina.
We saw Green Day and U2's Bono perform before the game.
We saw former President George H.W. Bush do the coin toss.
We saw the Saints play their most in-
Sspiring game in decades en route to a 23-3
:. thrashing of the Atlanta Falcons and a first-
S place standing in the NFC South.
We saw Saints fans cheering with smiles
on their faces. And throughout the night,
Antonio we saw the heartbreaking pictures and
Gonzalez stories of what New Orleans and its people
Going Going Gonzo went through during that trying August
email@example.com last year.
Now here's what we didn't see:
We didn't see the millions of people who
are still homeless. We didn't see the thousands still living in trailers
and temporary housing units.
We didn't see those who are still without a job. We didn't see
the displaced families. And we didn't see the debris that is still
being picked up.
It's only been three days since the game. Have we forgotten about
New Orleans already?

a Top 5
On an'rnusually cool late afternoon, the UF-Florida -
State showdown rapidly turned into one of the most
controversial events In the history of Gators football.
Although the Seminoles won 38-34 on a last minute
52-yard bomb from embattled quarterback Chris
Rix to P.K. Sam, UF fans and players went home
decrying the officiating.
The Seminoles appeared to have fumbled on their
first iick return of the game, as well as late in the
fourth quarter, and UF running back Clatrick Fason appeared
to be shafted on some supposed fumBles of his own.
If certain calls had been reversed, the game may have swung by as
many as 14 points .
Some pointed to an Atlantic Coast Conference officiating crew, and
noted that every controversial decision during the game went in favor
of the Seminoles.
UF athletics director Jeremy Foley vowed to re-evaluate the practice
of using the opposing conference's officials when the two teams met.
To make matters worse, both teams engaged in a postgame brawl at
midfield that Foley himself attempted to break up.

With Hetland's job safe for now,
other players on special teams will
also remain in their spots.
Butch Rowley is still the hold-
er, Smith will snap and Joey Ijjas
will continue to kick off.
Despite Hetland's struggles in
the ear~y going, Meyer hasn't lost
faith in him.
A STYLE FOR EVERY STORYTM
"I have.a lot of confidence in
Chris Hetland," Meyer said. "I
made the comment the other day
that I've coached some kickers
that you just look in their eyes,
and you're not sure what's going
on up there.
"Chris Hetland is no different
than Chris Leak. He's a very com-
petitive young guy and very tal-
ented. And I just wish we would
have got more field goals."

There are still millions in that city
that need help.
Sure, from the pictures ESPN and
Monday Night Football brought
into our living rooms, everything
-seems peachy in the Big Easy. But
the truth is, it's far from it.
It will take years and far more
money than the $180 million that
was spent repairing the Superdome
for New Orleans to return to nor-
However, there's no doubt in my
mind that the Saints will help the
recovery. And the money spent on
the Superdome was worth it the
Saints will put much more back into
the local economy. They've already
sold out every game this year, and
between merchandise and possible
playoffgames, there's loads of more
cash on the way.
And besides the money, the
Saints give locals a sense of pride,
culture and togetherness that has
been absent since Katrina.
But we, as Americans, need
to do more- than watch football.
