Fire heats up beer prices
By MALLORY COLLIFLOWER
Alligator Contributing Writer
Beer-drinking Gators may soon get less
brew for their buck.
The price of beer is feared to be in jeop-
ardy after a fire in Washington state burned 4
percent of the nation's hops crop.
Twenty-four percent of hops used world-
wide is grown in the United States, mostly in
the Washington's Yakima Valley region.
Flames engulfed a 40,000-square-foot
storehouse in Yakima on Monday ruining $4
million worth of hops, an essential crop used
to flavor beer during the brewing process.
Prices are likely to increase if the ruined
hops were of a scarce variety, but industry
officials are urging consumers otherwise.
"This isn't like the oil industry, where
if there is a leak in a pipeline, prices go up
immediately," said Ann George, adminis-
trator of the Washington Hop Commission.
"They're an important ingredient but not a

terribly expensive one."
She added that even if the cost of "hops
increases by 50 percent, there would still be
only 2.5 cents worth of hops in every 31 gal-
lons of beer.
"This isn't like the oil industry,
where if there is a leak in a pipe-
line, prices go up immediately."
Washington Hop Commission administrator
The storehouse was owned by S. S. Steiner
Inc., a division of the German Steiner Group,
one of the largest manufacturers of hops
in the United States. On the eve of UF's
Homecoming weekend, the possible threat
of rising beer prices has not dampened any
"If prices go up, prices go up," said Kelli
Early, a UF psychology major. "Would it
change my drinking habits? Hell no."

* AFTER NEARLY A DECADE OF SERVICE, GPD
HORSE GOES HOME TO OFFICER'S STABLE.
By DREW HARWELL
The Gainesville Police Department's latest retiree isn't
looking for a big pension or grand ceremony.
All he wants is grain and open pasture.
Justice, a former police horse, has spent the past nine
years patrolling downtown Gainesville, said Sgt. Steve
Baker, Justice's rider for the past three-and-a-half years.
Because Justice is in his 20s, he's being retired to live out
the rest of his life at Baker's stable.
Justice was around 12 when GPD brought him from
Tennessee in 1997 to be one of the first horses in its
Mounted Patrol Unit.
He had no real specialties then, but Baker said he had a
good personality and attitude.
"He doesn't bite, doesn't kick, doesn't spook," Baker
said. "He's what they call in the horse industry 'bomb-
proof.' He's the horse in the Civil War re-enactments,
jumping over cannons, charging into a crowd of 1,000
people with bayonets."
The unit began training Justice a brown Tennessee

STUDENT GOVERNMENT ELECTIONS
Rumors of misconduct hold up election validation
By JOEY CHINDAMO
The Swamp Party chomped its
competition in last week's Student
Government election, but a brief
voting controversy prevented new
leaders from taking office at
Tuesday's Student Senate meeting.:
At a Monday meeting of SG's
Election Commission, members
validated every election result ex-
New SG officials can only be
sworn in if all results are validated
at least 24 hours in advance.
Brian Aungst, SG supervisor of
elections, said there were no official
complaints that would "cast a doubt
on the validity of the election," but
there were rumors of improper vot-
ing in the Tolbert area.
It was rumored that students
who did not live in the district had
changed their addresses to vote for
the on-campus Senate seat, Aungst
"The Election Commission called
for validation of everywhere except
Tolbert in order to investigate,"
"We did our due diligence.
We're on schedule, and
everything is good."
SG supervisor of elections
Aungst said the investigation did
not reveal anyproof of voter miscon-
duct or of "double voting," which
occurs when off-campus students
who are eligible to vote at various
locations vote more than once.
The Election Commission has 10
days from Election Day to recom-
mend whether or not the Senate
should validate the results, Aungst
Aungst then must go before
the Senate and deliver the Election
Commission's recommendation for
"We pushed our recommenda-
tion for validation back a week in or-
der to hear concerns," Aungst said.

cials more than 40 senators and a

Jennifer Cohen, chairwoman
of the Elections Commission, said
that even though the claims of voter
misconduct were just rumors, the
commission decided to investigate
"We wanted to make sure we'd
be validating a credible election,"
she said. "We wanted to make sure
the vote totals were accurate, even
if they did not affect the outcome
New student officials are sched-

Local fare to join UF menus
By VANESSA BORGES
Alligator Contributing Writer
This month kicks off the UF Office of
Sustainability's plan to get the ball rolling on
responsible food practices and it could mean
more local ingredients at UF's dining halls.
In 2004 the Student Senate urged the univer-
sity to create an Office of Sustainability, and since
then UF President Bernie Machen has initiated
several plans to make UF a model
On for environmentally friendly prac-
j ; tices.
But in that time UF has done
little to create a sustainable food program in its
dining halls and other eating facilities.
Jill Rodriguez, marketing program manager
for Gator Dining Services, said that the goal is to
produce everything in-house or to buy from local
"We want to be responsible and not over-
cook," Rodriguez said. "We don't want and don't
have many leftovers."
The Fresh Food Company in the Broward
Dining Center offers made-to-order meals every
day, Rodriguez said. The facility feeds up to 3,000
students daily without wasting food, she added.
Rodriguez pointed out that the facility does
not use any plastic plates or utensils, eliminating
On Oct. 23, the Fresh Food Company will be
hosting a "Local Food Night" to observe how
students respond to the idea of having fresh, local
food from Alachua County farms available.
"Fresh Food Company is basically a living,
learning lab for sustainable practices," Rodriguez
Now the plan is to broaden UF's purchasing,
Joining forces with Sysco Corp., the univer-
sity's food supplier, local farmers who are inter-
ested in working with the Office of Sustainability
will be sought out to provide food at several on-
SThe only concern, Rodriguez said, is whether
local farms will be able to provide food daily.
Meredith Frazier, a member of Gators for a
Sustainable Campus, said supporting local farm-
ers is beneficial because it is an investment in the
Frazier said she would buy more food on
campus if she knew her money would be going
to local businesses.
"Spending our money on food provided by
large corporations drains money from the local
economy and sends it to companies that often
give an unusually large amount of money to top
officials," she said. "Buying locally cuts out the
middleman. Your money goes straight from your
hand to the farmer's pocket."

Center will take alum's name
By CHAD SMITH
UF's real estate center will be
renamed to honor an alumnus who
recently pledged $2.5 million for it.
Kelley Bergstrom, who earned a
master's degree in business admin-
istration with a real estate concentra-
tion from UF in 1968, wanted to give
back to his alma mater particular-
ly its Center for Real Estate Studies.
Bergstrom said he hopes his dona-
tion will help enhance the center's
national profile by aiding faculty
research and student scholarships.
The center has been renamed the

Student Senate ponders
ESPN College GameDay
With the Fall election behind them, UF's student
senators convened Tuesday to discuss vital affairs
of state. Just kidding. Actually, it was business as
usual for Student Government. Not even the faces changed.
Six days after the polls closed, those foolproof paper ballots
still hadn't been validated meaning the Swamp Party's
new class of legislators won't be sworn in until next week.
But not to worry. The incumbents are on top of things. This
week, they debated whether or not to welcome ESPN College
GameDay to UF Not whether to have the show here, mind you
- that decision was made months ago, and not by SG but
whether Student Body President John Boyles should present
the hosts with a fruit basket when they arrive. Stirring.
In the end, the pro-fruit-basket side carried the day. But
the debate was fierce. Sen. Ryan Nelson, God bless him, com-
plained that the resolution was meaningless and a waste of
everybody's time. That's when Student Senate President Mike
Patrone huffed, "Were we wasting our time when we congratu-
lated the basketball team?" Read that again. Then thank Patrone
for laying bare the essential condition of SG that would be
complete irrelevance, in case you were wondering for all to
see. And for the record, yes, you were wasting your time when
you congratulated the basketball team.
We'll give those-senators one thing, though. They all looked
adorable in their suits and ties and pearl necklaces. So grown
up! In fact, if you covered your ears, you could almost pretend
they were talking about something important, like tuition hikes
or the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Hell, we would have
settled for free printing or covered bus stops. But no. If SG wants
the student body and the Alligator to take its little meet-
ings seriously, then let's hope the next batch of Swamp senators
is more interested in governing than in playing dress-up.
Nukyular North Korea?
A h, the "Axis of
Evil." Florida State
New York Yankees and
Gainesville tow companies.
No, wait it's Iraq, Iran
and North Korea. Remember
them? In 2002, the president

veloping weapons of mass
destruction, hooking up
with terrorists and generally
making a nuisance of them-
He was wrong about
Iraq, of course. No weapons
of mass destruction there.
No real ties to al-Qaida
either. But the other two?
Bull's-eye. Iran has supplied
Hezbollah with guns and
money for decades and now,
most experts say, it's trying
to make a nuclear bomb.
Even worse, North Korea
probably has a few of them

Hey, Swamp: where's my free burrito?
o, 14 percent of our school voted in the Student
Government Fall elections. Bravo.
Wait. Don't skip to the crossword just yet. I'm
not going to rehash the issues or malign the candidates
- you're safe from that until the Spring. This column
deals not with this past election, but with elections in
I've been asking myself the $12 million question:
Why is turnout so low? Why do we students collectively
refuse to spend the five minutes required to choose our
leaders our representatives?
These are the people who use your money for their
own trips, parties and awards. Imagine some SG of-
ficials went into your room and took cash from your
wallet, then got themselves dinner. You'd do something
SG doesn't steal from you, but the funds they control
belong to you just like the money in your wallet does.
It's there to help make your experience at UF as good
as it can be.
So why don't we care? I think I know the answer.
The problem is that we still associate SG at UF with
high school student council elections something
truly meaningless. Back then, it was basically a resume-
boosting pissing contest that went to the kid with the
coolest posters. It should be more than that now that $12
million is at stake. But it's not.
Now that the Swamp Party has swept the elections,
I have no idea how my experience as a UF student will
improve. All I remember getting from SG is gym wipes
- and really, how much does it cost to stock a tin can
with towelettes? And how bright do you have to be to
think of it?
The 2006 budget comes to
about $250 for every student. It
basically means that on every
school day in the Fall and Spring
p semester you should receive
Parick B t about a burrito's worth of value
Patrick Barre from SG. Just a half-pound of
Grin and Bare It beefy, cheesy satisfaction wait-
email@example.com ing for you when you get off the
bus courtesy of your friends
What this means, primarily, is that the majority of us
are not getting what we paid for. A daily lunch burrito
would bring me significantly more joy than what I now
get from Swamp, which as far as I can tell is the oppor-
tunity to refuse a sticker twice a year.
However, the more important implication here is
that SG, in the right hands, could improve the average
student's day your day by a burrito. That's a lot
- even a weekly burrito would be awesome.
The question we face now is a tough one. Who will
the tides of history foist upon us teeming masses? Who
will lead us to the promised land which, to round out
th& conceit, would have to be Taco Bell?
Good question.' Maybe it's you. If it is, the time to
prepare is now. Investigate the current and potential
doings of SG. Use the Internet to connect with students
and motivate the nonvoting majority. Don't just be an
anti-Swamp party stand for something.
And until the Spring, ask yourself every time you're
on campus: Where's-my burrito?

The horses were gradually exposed to
people and cyclists, as well as items that the
horses were not familiar with.
Trainers would light fireworks, hit the
horses with beach balls and water noodles
and stick protest signs in their faces.
"Something as simple as a plastic bag
blowing across the street," Baker said. "To
them, that's a monster about to eat them."
Over the years, the horse was trained on
Wednesday, and he spent Thursday, Friday
and Saturday nights patrolling downtown.
From 10 p.m. to around 3 a.m., the officers and
horses kept crowds in check.
Baker said Justice could deal with people
pushing, shoving or slapping him. He's
walked through hostile crowds, pursued flee-
ing vehicles and been in the middle of fights.
But even after years of patrolling the streets
and chasing down criminals, Justice still has a
Baker said that, due to the horse's poor
depth perception, any puddle on the ground
frightened him. Baker had to retrain Justice
not to be afraid every time it rained.
"It's OK," he would tell Justice. "You're not
going to fall to China."
Justice was always rewarded with a "good
job" and a pat on the neck, but Baker said the
horse had a lot of confidence and didn't need
"Everyone's oohing and ahhing, and he
doesn't care," Baker said. "Other horses eat it

Baker said Justice loves to eat. While on

Baker said Justice's age has caught up with
him. What he used to do with ease he now
does with moans, groans and stumbles.

Stitt said. "But for the next couple

For now, Honeycutt said, police

Bonny Lachut, Cabana's prop-

e answered the phone jovially.
"Hello, sir," he said in a sprightly tone.
I was already nervous about talking to him, and I
was a little taken aback.
"Hi, ur, Jamie?" I confusedly stuttered out. Surely this
couldn't be the Jamie Stewart of Xiu Xiu.
It was. We exchanged salutations, but I was still a little per-
plexed he's too friendly. I broke down and admitted it: I'm
kind of intimidated.
"I wish I had an evil laugh," he said. Jamie Stewart
Even writing those three words feels strange.
Here is a man who seems enveloped in sorrow.
Here is a former preschool teacher whose songs recount of-
ten-autobiographical tales of abuse, rape and revenge. His per-
sonal wounds are perfectly conveyed to the listener through
his signature pained whispers and screams.
Stewart told me not to worry and that it's a common
misperception that he's one of the smartest, most well-read
individuals in music. He was just being modest.
Stewart fronts Xiu Xiu, an experimental indie rock outfit
from San Jose, Calif. Xiu Xiu is a band that is fiercely realistic.
All of Stewart's lyrics are about real events.
"Some of them are about things that are happening or have
happened to me," Stewart said. "Some of them are about things
that are happening to people in my family, or people in the
band or friends of people in the band."
I asked Stewart if he feels any catharsis in getting these
things off of his chest or out in the open.
"I don't feel relieved of any of the issues by having written
about them, but they seem like they tend to make more sense,"
he said. "When I hear songs that I know are about something
real even if they're not about something real in my life per-
sonally because I know they're true, I get more out of it."
Most times when you read about Xiu Xiu, someone is either
pondering Stewart's sexuality (he's bisexual, for the record) or
trying to figure out the goal of his music.
Whether or not Xiu Xiu's aim is to shock, horrify or reveal,
Stewart is consciously commenting on events. Such is evident
'When 67 Ieat songs ihat 3Z know aor

JCamie Stewart, XIu Xin feopt mWa
when I asked him the significance of the title of Xiu Xiu's new
album, "The Air Force." His response is sort of like listening to
his song "Support Our Troops OH!"
"It's becoming excusable -to indiscriminately kill like 70
children in the process to kill one 'insurgent.'" Stewart said.
He sighed heavily. "Thoughtlessly murdering entire families
- indescribably cruel ..." His voice trailed off.
"And also the pilots are completely sealed from the murders
they're committing," he continued. "They're just up there fly-
ing around in their little f--ing video games and masturbating
while they bomb. It's unbelievable to me that this is accept-
Surprisingly enough, "The Air Force" contains no songs
that are specifically about the album's namesake. For the most
part, the album focuses on death, love and other issues that
Stewart and his bandmates are going through.
Xiu Xiu created the album mostly in Stewart's apartment,
where he has a small home studio.
"We worked on things five or six days a week and slowly,
slowly chipped away at it," Stewart said.
He said that the album was about 80 percent finished when
Xiu Xiu brought Deerhoof drummer greg Saunier to polish it
up and add to it.
"He helped us fix some things that weren't working and
pushed us a little harder helped us do a better job," he said.
One particular standout from the album is "Hello From
Eau Claire," a song dealing with gender ambiguity sung by
Stewart's bandmate and cousin Caralee McElroy.
She and Stewart have constituted the core members of
Xiu Xiu for quite some time, but now there is a third Ches
"Mechanically, he's playing live drums and live percussion,
whereas we used a drum machine before," Stewart said. "His
musical background is really different than mine and really dif-
ferent than Caralee's, so he's just an entire breadth of interest
that wasn't there before."
With a new record in the bag and Smith in tow, Xiu Xiu is
now back on tour to promote its release. They're stopping over
tonight at Common Grounds, where tickets are $10 and the
doors open at 9 p.m.
As Jamie and I wrapped up our conversation, he told me
that his guilty pleasure these days is CornNuts. I would not
have seen that coming, but can we really anticipate the next
thing Xiu Xiu is going to do? Apparently not.
One of the most tortured voices ever committed to tape
pleasantly told me goodbye and, laughing with other voices in
the background, hung up the phone.

messy jumble of astonishing ideas and
sounds, "Yellow House" is almost be-
yond reckoning. If it's any indication of
the quality of the band's future work,
this record will serve as the first mas-
terwork of a truly innovative group.
Though "Modem Times" is no "Time
Out of Mind," let alone a "Blood on
the Tracks," it is still a consistently
solid record, offering sturdy songcraft,
if not necessarily pleasing surprises.
The majority of the album tills the
same gritty, boogie rock of "Love and
Theft." While all the songs are at least
competent, it is when Dylari stylistically
stretches himself that he shines.
"Beyond the Horizon," for example,
is an immensely charming torch song, a
Hawaiian slack-key guitar ditty recall-

Akron/Family invokes eclecticism
after releasing its quietly arresting, folk-
t indebted debut in 2004, Akron/Family
moved on to release-a split album with
the Angels of Light that showed the band
adding a large dose of ambition to its com-
plex songwriting, improving dramatically in
almost every respect. With "Meek Warrior,"
the group takes a different tack, emphasizing
texture and mood to excellent effect.
The nearly 10-minute, suitelike "Blessing
Force," starts the album. It is certainly the
most provocative and ambitious track, and
nothing would make me happier than to say
it's an unqualified masterpiece.
Sadly, this is not the case. Part of what
distinguished the band's experimentation in
the past is that it always managed to augment
its already-inventive and satisfying songwrit-
ing. With "Blessing Force," the group flaunts
its experimental side to no fulfilling end.
Each individual part of the song is intriguing;
as a whole, it's bewildering.
Thankfully, "Meek Warrior" moves on
from this initial misstep. After the bucolic
folk rock of "Gone Beyond" and the caveman
transcendentalism of the
title track, Akron/Family
stretches out with "No
Space in This Realm," a
E 3 meditative, weightless
drift of eddying acoustic
Akron/Family guitar, warmly murmur-
Meek Warrior ing horns and wandering
upright bass. It's spec-
tacular in a way the band hasn't been since
their debut quietly, not kinetically.
And from then on, Akron/Family re-
ally hits its stride. "Meek Warrior" may be
(mostly) calming, but its fearless eclecticism
is anything but sissy.
Broadcast avoids common pitfalls
hough I always look forward to new stuff
y Broadcast, when I heard about its new
compilation, "Future Crayon," I was a bit
concerned. There's good reason to be, too.
First, there, is the length. With 18 songs
docking in at a total of nearly 70 minutes, 25
minutes longer than the band's second-longest
release, the compilation requires a consider-
able investment of time. On "Future Crayon,"
the group cobbled together material spanning
years, styles and sources. Thankfully, the re-
cord avoids potential hazards and sequencing
problems, and it instead serves as a vital addi-
tion to Broadcast's output.
The compilation's first half feels not unlike
a more subdued version of "The Noise Made
by People," Broadcast's prettiest and most
satisfying full-length album. "Still Feels Like
Tears" chugs along with purposeful breezi-
ness, sounding something like a Can song
rearranged by Ennio. Morricone. The yearn-
ing, circular "Poem of Dead Song" is one of
the more affecting songs in Broadcast's work,
placing singer Trish Keenan's heartfelt coo in
a timeless, enveloping shroud of reverb-laden
pop melancholy. "Locusts"
glides through a stylish,
Sultry nocturne before
abruptly veering off into
an angular, airy cavern of
ethereal synth wisps and
Broadcast hip-hop drumming.
Future Crayon What we have here
is a consistent release, in
which the band's ingenuity and taste almost
entirely makes up for the compilation's tra-
ditional pitfalls. While it might not spark a
new fan base, anything Broadcast releases is
certainly worth a listen, and "Future Crayon"
is no exception.

Chivalry and romance require effort from both sides

Chivalry is not. an art to be
left to damsels in distress, nor to
knights in shining armor.
Chivalry is a tradition that
typical college students can use

friend's blog: My friend decided-
to take a lady friend on a date.

And how did his date reward
this gentlemanly behavior?
By ordering the most expen-

a considerable amount of time on
her cell phone.
My friend's response may sur-
Rather than quietly accept-
ing it,,he excused himself to the
bathroom and made for the door,
leaving his inconsiderate date
confused and holding the bill.
My reaction to his unorthodox
for being a cad.
I didn't get the urge to smack
some sense into him.
I didn't even get upset.
I wanted to give him a hug
and kiss, to shake his hand.
Good job, my friend.
But what Iread next made me
My friend ended his blog by
stating that chivalry is dead.
He declared that women
After thinking about this, I
concluded: Chivalry is a two-
Ladies, if we want men to treat
us chivalrously, we need to show
them a little chivalry in return.
I'm not saying we need to start
picking up the tab or throwing
our coats over rain puddles.
A little dash of appreciation
can go a long a very long way.
When your date holds the
door open, give him a sweet,
feminine smile and sincere, polite

That's what chivalry is all
about being nice, considerate
So, gentlemen, please don't
give up on chivalry.
Some of us women do appreci-

And, ladies, show the gentle-
men in your lives that you enjoy
their good behavior.
Over time, the little things add
up to a lot.
Chivalry can survive. When
your date treats you like the lady
you are, give him a smile, a hug,
a "thank you" or even a kiss if
you're so inclined.
Offering to pay for the movie

Dance raises funds for trip len d a r
By JENNIFER PFAFF
As a member of the Florida Swing Dance
Club, Chad Mackman, 22, received a little
more than just physical support from his
fellow dancers this weekend as he dipped
and bopped on the dance floor at the Unified
Clad in'40s fedoras, '50s dresses and '60s
bellbottoms, 85 swing dancers mostly
members from the dance dub gathered
Friday night to swing dance in costume
and donate money toward a
medical outreach trip totaling For some, th

p:'c in DR HELP, a weeklong
program during Spring Break that has sent
participants to the Dominican Republic to
educate and provide health care to citizens
for the past 11 years.
Florida Swing Dance Club the cub turned
its regular Friday evening meeting into an
open-invitation, themed benefit event in or-
der to support Mackman.
"For us, it's mainly about supporting
Chad, and kind of through that, trying to get
people in different disciplines involved in
the dub, because it's something for anybody
from any major to do," said Micah Labishak,
president of the Florida Swing Dance Club.
Supplied with examining tables and
medical tools, the team members carry out
any medical remedies they can.
They do everything from treating minor
colds to performing minor surgeries.
Last year's group treated more than
1,200 citizens, more than half of wom were
"For some, this is their only access to
health care all year. For some, it's the only ac-
cess they've ever had," Mackman said.
Lindsey Evans, a second-year medical
student who participated in last year's trip
and is a trip leader for the upcoming out-
reach, said that many Dominican Republic
children .suffer from scabies, malnutrition"
and parasites. "The adults have trauma in-
juries, disorders we've never seen over here

Club and a health examination.
They also receive condoms, children's toys
and hotel soaps and shampoos:
"You can't treat disease conditions in a
country if you don't know what surround-
ing it," Evans said., "For example, people
who have scabies may not have access to
washing wells, so you can't tell them to treat
it by just washing their hands."
The group will work for five days, they'll
relax for two and spend the remainder of
their time sightseeing.
For now, the DR HELP team is making
fundraising efforts to leave the country.
Friday night, the Florida Swing Dance
Club raised $190 toward the trip. Everyone
who participated, including Daniel
Braughler, a freshman Florida Swing Dance
Club member, donated at least $5 each to-
ward the trip.

No more room for error; UF sets sight on SEC title

UF sophomore forward Megan Kerns dribbles past a Georgia defender during the sec-
ond half of the Gators' 2-1 overtime win against the Bulldogs on Friday.
By BRIAN STEELE
The UF soccer team must be reading the
philosophies of Al Davis.
The Oakland Raiders owner's re-
nowned saying "just win baby" has been
ringing clearly at press conferences and
practice lately. Heading into the heart of
Southeastern Conference play, the No. 19
Gators (7-4-1, 3-1 SEC) know that every
game is vital to reach their goal of a con-
The Gators are second in the SEC with
nine points, trailing South Carolina by one
"We just gotta win," UF coach Becky
Burleigh said. "That's the bottom line; we
just have to win."
Still, if UF is able to complete this week-
end against Vanderbilt and Kentucky with
two wins, there needs to be some changes
in its mental psyche.
The Gators dominated first-half scoring
two weekends ago versus Alabama and
Auburn. The same can't be said for last
In those two games, the Gators were
outscored 3-0 in the first half. Although UF
came back in Disney-like fashion against
Georgia, defeating the Bulldogs 2-1 in
overtime, they were not able to overcome a
two-goal deficit against Tennessee, falling
2-1. After the Tennessee loss, players ad-
mitted they felt prepared but overlooked
As Ashley Harris put it, "We didn't
come out to win this."
"We've had a few bad losses this
year, and from each one I think
we've taken something."

Following the emotional weekend, it
would seem tough to rebound.
However, sophomore Megan Kerns
"We're going to try and use those emo-
tions in a good way so we calm down and
relax," said Kerns, who scored the game-
tying goal against Georgia on Friday.

and from each one I think we've taken

Sophomore Billy Horschel might
as well have been wearing red yes-
terday in Williamsburg, Va., because
everything about his game screamed
Tiger Woods on a Sunday.
Playing at the site of the 2006
NCAA Championships, Horschel
presented the aura of a champion
with a flawless third round, leading
UF to its first victory of the season.
Horschel recorded a career-low
7-under-par 63 to finish with an
overall 203 (7 under), as the men's
golf team shot a combined 8-under-
par 272 Wednesday at the PING/
Golfweek Preview Invitational.
The Gators finished with a
three-day total of 834 (6 under) to
oust defending NCAA champion
Oklahoma State by four strokes and
leave their coach a little bit shocked.
"I'll be the first to admit that I
didn't think we would win a golf
tournament this early in the year,"
Coach Buddy Alexander said.
"I was confident we'd get better
as the year went on, but I wasn't
sure if we'd be where we are now

UF volleyball coach Mary Wise couldn't
be happier that the O'Connell Center is in-
fested with rats.
Gym rats, that is, and they take the form of
junior Marcie Hampton, sophomore Kelsey
Bowers and freshmen Janine Williams and
"What we look for in recruiting, amongst
other things, is gym rats," Wise said. "We
want players who love to be in the gym. Time
off from practice and they can't wait to get
back in there, and those are four gym rats."
But the four rats share more than just a
love for volleyball they share the same
With 13 players on the team, the
Gainesville natives comprise nearly one-third
of the roster.
What's more, three of the four are in the
starting lineup andmaking significant contri-
butions this season.
Bowers was named Southeastern
Conference Defensive Player of the Week
on Sept. 25, and one week later, Cusack was
named SEC Freshman Player of the Week.
Hampton continues to be one of UF's key
offensive options and is third on the team in
kills with 143. With this much hometown tal-
ent on the team, there's got to be something
in the water.
"I don't know what it is about Gainesville,"
Hampton said. "I think the University of
Florida is a big thing. I know I've watched

way of learning volleyball is to watch high-

"Marcie was kind of like the volleyball
goddess in girls club," Bowers said.
When Cusack was in the fourth or fifth
grade, she also marveled at Hampton's tal-
ent, but a different characteristic of her team-
mate ha- alwa \s stuck with her.

Years later, the poofy hair de-
flated, and the duo became teammates at P.K.
Yonge. They were accompanied by Williams,
who joined the team as a seventh-grader.
As teammates, the trio bonded quickly,
but you could say that hanging around with
Cusack, Williams and Hampton was more
like participating in an episode of "Punk'd."
"Every year, we'd play a prank on our
coach," Cusack said. "It was actually a differ-
ent coach every year, so it kind of never got
old. They'd never know it was coming."
While their stunts may not have been as
elaborate as Ashton Kutcher's, they still got a
big enough reaction from their coach.
"We'd get fake cigarettes, and we would
take them to tournaments, and then we'd sit
out by the hot tub and wait for our coach to
come out," Cusack said. "We'd start smoking
them, and she freaked out and thought we
were total rebels and was yelling at us."
Bowers, a Gainesville High graduate,
never got in on the pranking action, but she
bonded with the three on their club team,
Soon though, the bond would begin to
dissolve as they got older and graduation
Hampton was the first to move on, but the

Even though she grew up as a Gators fan
and couldn't imagine bleeding any colors
other than orange and blue, she was skeptical
about staying so cose to home.
"It adds a little bit to the pressure of hav-
ing to be good all the time. Also, when you're
in high school and your parents get on your
nerves, you're like, 'You know, I just want to
get away from here,'" Hampton said with a
laugh. "But I'm so glad I stayed. My family is
so important to me."-
Bowers was the next to depart, and she
also cited family as the reason for her deci-
sion to stay.
"Sometimes we'll say some-
thing, and they'll be like'h, the
Gainesville girls,' but they're just
"My dad is the biggest volleyball fan I
could ever have," Bowers said. "I think after
every game, he writes me an e-mail critiqu-
ing everything and asks me about how I felt
about different things."
For Cusack, the decision was an easy one
to make because the Gators had been a part
of her life for as long as she could remember.
Her parents used to own season basketball
tickets, and she would tag along to the
But Cusack could have been sporting a
different uniform during UF events if she fol-
lowed through on a childhood dream.
"I always wanted to be a Dazzler," she
said. "I went to Dazzler camp."
Upon hearing this, UF volunteer assistant
coach Jenny Theis, who played for the Gators
and graduated in 1999, gave Cusack auskepti-
"Jenny, don't look at me like that!" Cusack
defended. "I loved them. They were cool."
Ultimately, Cusack stuck with volleyball
and decided to graduate early from high
school in order to enroll at UF in the spring so
she could practice with the team.
Williams opted to do. the same,-which
pleased her UF alumni parents.
Even though she ultimately chose UF,
Williams never felt pressure from her parents
to make that decision.

me be in Alaska and be happier than [live] 10
minutes away," Williams said.

LSU QB Russell could be 'big' problem for Gators
Alligator Staff Writer
JaMarcus Russell is a big guy.
Just ask UF linebacker Brandon
"He's a big fella," Siler said. "I
remember last year, the first play
of the game, I blitzed and went
in there and hit him and he didn't
fall. I had to push him down."
But all of a sudden, Russell is
making the transition from big
quarterback to big-time quarter-
The 6-foot-6, 260-pound behe-
moth has always been able to use
his size and his out-of-this-world
arm strength to frustrate oppos-
ing defenses, but this season, the

LSU quarterback JaMarcus Russell pitches the ball to a running back during the Gators' 21-17 loss to
the Tigers in 2005.
LSU junior is making tremendous
strides in his poise and decision-
While the Gators were able to
force three turnovers out of Russell
in 2005, that may not be such a
simple task this time around.
Russell is leading the
Southeastern Conference in pass-
ing efficiency this season, carrying
a league-high 70.4 percent comple-
tion rate. His 10 touchdowns to
just one interception is the most
impressive ratio in the conference.
"I think JaMarcus is much more
confident in the things we ask him
to do," LSU coach Les Miles said.
"He understands the play-calling
now. It's like anything else; once
you get some experience, you
start to see improvement, and he's
ready to play."
With the No. 9 Tigers (4-1, 1-
1 SEC) set to face No. 5 UF (5-0,
3-0 SEC) and the SEC's top run
defense Saturday, -Russell's play
could be the key to the game.
"I think the thing is, you just
got to put pressure on him like
we did last year," UF coach Urban
Meyer said. "But he has great size,
great strength and probably one of
the strongest arms in the country
- one of the strongest arms I've
That may be a major under-
LSU wide receiver Dwayne
Bowe said Russell can throw a
football 75 yards from one
Interestingly, however, Meyer is
more worried about Russell's run-
ning ability than his arm strength.
"You'll hear someone say that
he's not very mobile, but that's
not true," Meyer. said. "A lot of
his damage is done when he gets
outside the pocket. So extremely
strong, good athlete, doesn't run
the ball very much, but a lot of his
plays are made when he's outside
Russell also has plenty of weap-
ons to work with.
"I remember last year, the
first play of the game, I
blitzed and went in there
and hit him and he didn't
LSU's triple threat of Craig
Davis, Bowe and Early Doucet
may be too much for the UF cor-
ners to handle. The trio has com-
bined for 64 catches, 1,019 yards
and eight touchdowns so far this
Meanwhile, the Gators are
ranked 10th in the SEC in pass
defense. That puts them behind
teams like Arkansas, Vanderbilt
On the other hand, UF has
featured a bend-but-don't-break
defense the entire season, allowing
teams to drive down the field but
rarely find the end zone.
Miles hopes Russell can be the
guy who finally breaks UF's de-
fense wide open.
"I think he's an advantage for
us in every game," Miles said.
"Anytime you go into a key
matchup, it's good to have a heavy
signal caller. He knows what it's
like to play in a big game, and he's
got the confidence to go out there
Wilson to play Saturday, Wynn misses practice
* THE GUARD WILL PLAY SATURDAY
FOR THE FIRST TIME THIS SEASON.
By BRYAN JONES and NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writers
UP guard Ronnie Wilson will play for the
first time this season Saturday against LSU,
Coach Urban Meyer said Wednesday.
The redshirt freshman fractured his right
ankle prior to the season.
"He's practicing really well," Meyer said.
"Right now, he's learning left guard and right
When Wilson went out with the injury,
right tackle Drew Miller was moved to right
guard and tackle Carlton Medder was insert-
ed into the lineup in place of Miller.
Meyer said that neither player will have to
worry about losing his job just yet.
The prognosis doesn't look as bright for
starting running back DeShawn Wynn.
Wynn did not practice Wednesday, and
while he is still very questionable to play
against LSU, Meyer still expressed some
"DeShawn did not do anything today, but
they're still telling me there's a chance, so we'll
see," Meyer said.
After back-to-back 100-
yard rushing performances
against Tennessee and
Kentucky, Wynn injured
his right knee against
Alabama. If he is unable to
play Saturday, sophomore
Kestahn Moore will likely
get the nod.
PLAYOFFS?: According to ESPN.com,
Auburn coach Tommy Tuberville said
that Southeastern Conference teams have
little hope to win the national championship
without a playoff system.
"I've about had it with this playoff deal,"
said Tuberville, whose No. 3 Tigers are 5-0.
"We all understand in our conference how
tough it is. In our conference, that's about the
only chance we'd have to make it."
After Wednesday's practice, Meyer said he
had heard that argument before only for a
"[Michigan coach] Lloyd Carr told me that
one time," Meyer said. "I'm sitting there talk-
ing to him and he says, 'You know, no team
from the Big Ten will ever win a [national]
championship,' because they felt the Big Ten
was so tough. But they have an advantage,
they don't play a championship game."
8 1918: UF plays its first and only game of
the season, a 14-2 loss to Camp Johnson,
a nearby military camp. The rest of the
season was canceled as the United States
entered World War I.
Today's question: So far, who has been the
most impressive quarterback in the SEC?
