DORM LIFE


A KILLER'S END


Paint permitted,


but not popular


Gainesville's.

most infamous

man faces lethal

injection a week

from today
sixteen years ago, an ex-con-
vict arrived in Gainesville
and embarked on a three-
day killing spree, stabbing to death
five students and raping three of
them during the first week of Fall
classes.
Students fled Gainesville,
flooded lock shops and bunked in
each other's houses, afraid to sleep
alone until the killer was caught.
Four years later, he pleaded
guilty to five counts of murder and
was sentenced to death.
A week from today, he is sched-
uled to be executed by lethal injec-
tion in the Florida State Prison in
Raiford 30 minutes from here.
For the families of his victims -
Christina Powell, 17, Sonja Larson,
18, Christa Hoyt,.18, Tracy Paules,
23, and Manny Taboada, 23 the
night offers the hope of closure.
But Rolling's crimes affected
more than the victims and their
families. The murders that con-
sumed a sleepy Southern city still
cause Gainesville residents to
pause and recount the months-
long saga that plunged the city
into fear and disbelief.
Some things have changed
since then. Women jog alone at
night. Some students don't even
recognize the name of Danny
Rolling. The apartment complex
where the last two bodies were
discovered now provides fire-
fighters a training ground for put-
ting out blazes.
Other things have remained
eerily the same. Those murdered
students who would be in their
30s now never aged. A memo-
rial on the 34th Street Wall bearing
the victims' names is repainted as


Danny Rolling appears in court on July 11, 2000 to appeal his
death sentence for the 1990 murders of five college students.


needed by UF students.
In the week before his sched-
uled execution, the Alligator will
revisit the three days of Rolling's
gruesome killing spree and the
indelible mark it left on the com-
munity.
Well retell the story some have
forgotten and provide updates on
the people and places touched
by Rolling's crimes. We'll be,
writing about the investigators,


psychologists, family members,
students and their leaders, as well
as Danny Rolling, with whom this
story begins and ends.
We'll also have an online, spe-
cial report, where you can read
the stories, see more photos and
listen to audio clips from people
who were. at the center of this
nightmare.

* HOUSING OFFERS
PAINT TO RESIDENTS,
BUT FEW USE IT.

By SHERRY KASTEN
Alligator Contributing Writer

For many, the solution is-
exercise.
Others choose to talk out
their problems or spend a
day at the spa.
But deep in the confines of
some UF dorm rooms, stress
is relieved through artwork.
When Sharilyn Wiskup, a
resident adviser in Mallory
Hall, heard she was allowed
to paint her room, ideas
started to flow.
"Your dorm room is your
home away from home,"
Wiskup said. "I wanted mine
to be a stress-free environ-
ment, and painting is how I
made it that way."
Although the housing
department does rot overtly
advertise the option, those
living in residence halls
on campus are permitted
to paint their rooms, said
Cassandra Haynes, office
manager for the Department
of Housing and Residence
Education.
"It's listed in the residence
hall handbook," Wiskup said.
"But the RAs aren't even told
about it."
Residence halls offer stu-
dents a variety of free paint
in approximately 30 different
colors.
Brushes, towels and paint
pans also are available to stu-
dents at no charge.
Lighter colors are offered
for solid walls or back-
grounds, and brighter colors
are offered for more elaborate
murals, Haynes said.
"We only allow specific


light colors for the walls be-
cause we want students to
have an.easier time painting
them back to white," Haynes
said. "We offer wall colors,
trim colors and specific col-
ors for designs."
Before painting a room, all
roommates must sign a con-
sent form agreeing to paint
the room its original color
before they move out.
Students can pick up paint
and supplies from Broward
Hall and return them to their
own residence area office
'when they've finished.
"Your dorm room is your
home away from home.
I wanted mine to be
a stress-free environ-
ment, and painting is
how I made it that way."
Sharilyn Wiskup
Mallory Hall resident adviser


"Painting is also a really
good way to make your room
.feel homey," Wiskup said,
"and less like a jail cell."
In her room, Wiskup
painted a mural that inspires
her every day.
"It's a painting of a girl
that doesn't have a care in
the world," she said. "She's
wearing a teal and yellow
hat and an orange-and-white
striped T-shirt. Her hand is
held out as if saying 'what-
ever,' and the background is
covered with a bright blue
sky, full of butterflies."
The top of Wiskup's mural
reads: "Be daring, be differ-
ent, be original, be you."
"I just pointed to the
colors I wanted, and I prob-
ably picked over a dozen,"
Wiskup said.


UF's loss to
Auburn may have
punctured its na-
tional title hopes,
but the Gators have
focused their at-
tention on the SEC,
where they still
control their own
destiny.

COURTS

Local activist pleads not guilty


By ELIZABETH HILLAKER
Alligator Writer
ehillaker@alligator.org

A former UF instructor pleaded
not guilty Tuesday on charges that
he illegally tape-recorded an Alachua
city official.
Alachua City Manager Clovis
Watson Jr.'s suit against Charlie
Grapski is controversial because
Grapski was a plaintiff in a.separate
suit against Alachua about its City
Commission elections. That suit al-
leges that election laws were not
followed.
Grapski's defense attorney has
already entered a plea of "not guilty"
in Watson's suit.
"This is notjust aboutme," Grapski
said at a news conference outside the
Alachua County Courthouse. "This
is about ethical government and the
democratic process."
Last year, Grapski filed a suit
against UF president Bernie Machen
to gain access to records about the
UF administration's relationship
with Florida Blue Key, a leadership


honorary.
Grapski met with Watson, the city
manager, on April 28 to discuss his
request for that month's election re-
cords. The 39-year incumbent, James
Lewis, had defeated his challenger
for a City Commission seat by 18
votes, according to The High Springs
Herald.
One of Grapski's supporters at the
News conference,
Michael Canney,
said Grapski had
permission to re-
cord his conversa-
a Ttion with Watson.
However, the
Herald reported
Gpski that Watson ini-
tially didn't know
about the recording. Watson said he
allowed himself to be recorded after
he found out because he had nothing
to hide.
But the Herald reported that after
his meeting with Grapski, Watson
said Grapski insisted he could record
"anything" Watson said because
Watson was a public official. Under


Florida law, it is illegal to record pub-
lic officials without their consent.
"He clearly doesn't see the infrac-
tion, even after it happened," Watson
told the Herald. "I have an obligation
to hold him accountable."
On May 1, Grapski was arrested
while he was looking at the public
records about which he had spo-
ken with Watson, according to the
Herald.
Watson was present at the arrest
because in addition to his role as
city manager, he serves as Alachua's
police commissioner and its deputy
city clerk. To add to the controversy,
one of Watson's bosses was Alachua
City Commissioner Bonnie Burgess,
who was running against Grapski for
the state House of Representatives,
according to the Herald.
Grapski had to drop out of the
race because of the charges, said John
Prosser, a Grapski supporter who
had worked on his campaign. Now,
Grapski is only allowed to go to and
from his house in Alachua due to a
court order limiting his contact with
city officials.


SG addresses


visas, CLAS debt
By JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Writer
jdasilva@alligator.org
Student senators passed a resolution Tuesday night
that urges U.S. embassies to grant temporary visas to,
the parents of some international students at UF
Senators hope the resolution, which offers a sugges-
tion but does not set a law, will allow
Student parents in other countries to attend
GoverRIeOnt their children's commencement cer-
emonies in Gainesville.
Former Sen. Fei Long who is from China origi-
nally proposed the resolution at last week's Senate
meeting.
Earlier in the meeting, senators were visited by Allan
Burns, an associate dean for UF's College of Liberal Arts
and Sciences. Burs explained the college's multimil-
lion-dollar debt, and he said one mistake CLAS made
was not involving faculty and students in decisions.
"We kind of let things go as 'business as usual' and
didn't include faculty and students," he said.

Toledo tours UF campus


Andrea Morales/ Alligator Staff
Former Peruvian President Alejandro Toledo answers questions after
his speech on Latin American democracy at the Reitz Union Tuesday.


By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Alligator Writer
acancino@ufl.edu

Peru's former president spent a day at UF, telling
the community about his childhood, his years in office
and his legacy.
Alejandro Toledo ended his day by delivering a
speech on poverty and the future of democracy in
Latin America to a crowd of about 600 people in the
Reitz Union Grand Ballroom.
At the beginning of Toledo's speech, microbiology
and cell science freshman Kevin Hachey walked to
the podium and stood next to Toledo with a sign that
read: "NO ATLC, No to free trade."
Hachey was escorted out of the room.
He was protesting a free trade agreement Toledo
signed with the United States because, he said, it
would only hurt Peruvian farmers. Hachey, whose
father is from Peru, said he wanted to- highlight the
issue because the U.S. Congress has not yet ratified
the agreement. Toledo continued his speech without
mentioning the incident.
He urged Latin American students to go back to
their countries and make positive changes.
"You have the chance to be the president of your
nation," he said.
Although most people who questioned Toledo at
the end of his speech praised the former president,
Gainesville resident Rodrigo Gonzalez confronted
Toledo about scandals during his term. Toledo was
criticized for receiving $18,000 a month when a regu-
lar Peruvian made about $100 a month. He later cut
his salary to $12,000.
Toledo responded that Gonzalez's data was inac-
curate and he was not honest with his questions.
In an interview before the event, Toledo said that
presidents should have good salaries so they are not
tempted by corruption.
Earlier that day, Toledo had a closed-door meeting
with UF President Bemie Machen and Provost Janie
Fouke. He later had lunch with 11 professors and
graduate students.
"I am an unemployed former president, but I am
very happy to be here," Toledo told the group.


Between bites of Thai noodle salad, Toledo an-
swered questions about his accomplishments and
about poverty in Peru.
Toledo said that presidents can be elected demo-
cratically, but they have "serious troubles governing
democratically."
He said poverty causes this problem because for
the poor, civil participation is a low priority.
When a professor asked about the challenges of his
presidency, Toledo said that trying to fulfill his prom-
ises was difficult because he didn't have the support
from a political party.
On the other hand, Toledo said, he was responsible
for an increase in indigenous participation because
indigenous Peruvians saw him as an inspiration.
Toledo, who is of Andean descent, was one of
16 siblings seven of whom died before their first
birthday. As a child, Toledo had to shine shoes and
sell newspapers to pay for his schooling and to help
his family.
"I don't know any better way to free
people from poverty than education."
Alejandro Toledo
former president of Peru

With the help of members of the Peace Corps,
he received a scholarship to the University of San
Francisco. He later attended Stanford University,
where he completed a doctorate degree in education.
After lunch, Toledo spent about 30 minutes with a
class on contemporary Latin American history.
"I know I am the good one, and I am proud of
that," he said when a student asked him how histori-
ans will look at him in the future.
He said he would like to be remembered as some-
one whose priority was fighting poverty.
Toledo encouraged students to take advantage of
education because there are millions in Latin America
who don't have the opportunity to study. That oppor-
tunity is essential for their liberation, he said.
"I don't know any better way to free people from
poverty than education," he said.

A killer is born


By DREW HARWELL


etore he brutally murdered five college students at the
begiru g of UF's 1990 Fall semester, people knew little
about Danny Rolling.
He had been a quiet boy with a soft Southern drawl and sad,
drooping eyes. Women thought he was charming and gentle-
manly. He enjoyed playing guitar and sang in a church choir.
Few knew of his abusive childhood, his suicide attempts or
his sadistic fantasies.
And then his knife fell, carving a place in history for him as
the Gainesville Ripper.
The horror began quietly in 1954 when James Rolling and
his 22-year-old wife, Claudia, were married. James had just
returned from the Korean War and begrudgingly went job-
hunting in the river town of Shreveport, La.
Two weeks after their marriage and although James
didn't want to the couple conceived a child. They named
him Daniel. Daniel Harold Rolling.
During Claudia's pregnancy and after Rolling's birth, James
beat his wife. His brutality pushed her to leave with her new-
born child, but she returned not long after in an attempt to save
her marriage.

A SCARRED SON
Escape would become a method of survival for Rolling.
"Running was his defense mechanism," said Harry Krop,
a psychologist who would spend 500 hours with Rolling after
the murders. "It was his only way to avoid major conflicts."
Claudia loved Rolling dearly but felt too young and power-
less to defend him against his father. She reserved her motherly
caresses for Rolling only when her husband wasn't around,
fearing James' punishment.
When Claudia gave birth to her second son, Kevin, a year
after Rolling, the rules tightened and the beatings worsened.
No shoes inside. No sitting on the furniture. Keep quiet.
Hold your fork correctly.

If Rolling didn'tbreathe correctly, his father -now working
as a police lieutenant would whip him with a belt or grind
his knuckles into his head. And if he cried, he was hit harder.
Krop said one of the most hurtful rules for Rolling was not
being allowed to sit at the dinner table with his father, who had
banished him to the kitchen.
Rolling sometimes snuck out while his father was eating
and wandered the neighborhood. He gazed into the windows
of families eating dinner together and imagined he was eating
with them, laughing with them, being loved by them.
Krop said this abuse would scar him for life.
Emotional immaturity. Avoidance. Poor impulse control.
Sadistic fantasies. For now, they were just the quirks of a young
boy who got beatings when he wanted love. Over time they
would develop into forces that would push him to kill.
Claudia and her two sons ran away again. They left James
and the house three times but always returned not long after.
Rolling was 8,9 and 10 when they fled, and he pleaded to his
mother not to go back to the father who abused them.
Claudia would later tell the court in her son's trial that, at
this age, Rolling was being beaten once or twice a week.
When he failed the third grade, faculty members urged his
parents to let him receive counseling, citing his inferiority com-
plex and aggressive tendencies.
But his father decided Rolling's treatment would be more
violence. He never went to counseling.
"He was always trying to get rid of that that person
that his daddy made him believe he was," Claudia would say
about Rolling in a 1992 videotaped testimony. "He had no self-
esteem. No self-worth."
He was 11 when he began to play guitar, writing and sing-
ing his own songs. Krop said playing the guitar was something
Rolling felt good at and satisfied with. He wanted to be a song-
writer, attract women and become famous.
Also about this time he developed a drinking problem.
What he couldn't get from friends,
he stole.
S'- "He used it for avoidance, es-
Scape," Krop said. "It was self-medi-
Scation for the emotional pain he was
experiencing."
When the family fell asleep one
night, Rolling snuck out of the house
and spent several nights in nearby
woods. He spent his time fantasizing
of violence and control.
Twenty-four years later, he would
set up campsites in the woods near
his victims, and his sadistic fantasies
would become real.
His voyeurism, which began in-
nocently as he watched other fami-
lies, became sexually motivated. He
was caught peeking in windows to
'-S watch girls shower and undress.
Rolling was 15 when he slit his
.' wrists. He had seen his mother do
the same only four years earlier after
an argument with his father.
"I tried," he scrawled on the bath-
room mirror in his mother's lipstick.
"I just can't make it."
His father had told him that he
would be dead or in jail by 15.
S, Rolling almost proved him right.

high school in 1971, he enlisted in
the Air Force, where he excelled in
his course work but drank heavily,
smoked marijuana and used LSD.

couldn't keep a job and suffered from impotence.
Despite his faults, Rolling was enraged when Halko filed for
a divorce in 1977. (Rolling would later say his ex-wife looked
like 18-year-old Christa Hoyt, his sixth murder and the most
violent: He would stab the freshman through the back, cut off
her nipples and place her severed head on a bookshelf.)
Rolling became a drifter. He committed armed robberies
in Alabama, Louisiana and Georgia. The police caught him as
he left a Columbus, Ga., Winn-Dixie supermarket with $956 in
stolen cash, and he was sentenced to six years in prison.
There, he lifted weights, boxed and took pride in his power.
Inmates sometimes called him "psycho" after watching him
fight. Krop said the guards and inmates cruelly abused him,
adding to the wounds inflicted by his father.
After his release, he hitchhiked across the country, stopping
with relatives who would take him in. In 1985, Rolling held up
another supermarket and was arrested.
During a conversation with his defense attorney, Arthur
Carlisle, Rolling presented a bizarre
alternative to returning to prison:

A MURDERER
Julie Grissom, 24, was raped and murdered. Her father, Tom
Grissom, and his 8-year-old grandson Sean, were also killed.
Three generations of the Grissom family, stabbed to death.
Rolling positioned Julie's body with her legs spread and
hair carefully fanned onto her bed. She was discovered with
tape marks on her wrists and bite marks on her breasts. His ar-
ranging of his victims' corpses would become his signature.
Rolling had watched Julie as she worked at a Dillard's de-
partment store in Shreveport's South Park Mall. Krop said on
the night of Rolling's first murders, his voyeurism and sadistic
fantasies escalated into reality.
"Rolling couldn't stand the idea of their family being
happy," Krop said.
It would only be several months before he killed again.
Rolling wasn't hiding his anger and frustration any longer.
During an argument at his parents' home, he shot his father in
the stomach and head. His father lived. Rolling ran.
Rolling's love-hate relationship with his father would
continue to affect him months after the shooting. In the nights
before his Gainesville murders, he recorded messages that both
cursed and forgave his father.
"His father had been ... emotionally and physically abusive
to him when he was younger, yet Rolling continues to say, I
love him,'" psychiatrist Robert Sadoff would later say.
Rolling fled Shreveport and took a bus to Sarasota before
finally ending up in Gainesville. Krop said he was excited at
the prospect of a college town. He set up a campsite in woods
near Archer Road with a tent and a mattress he had bought at
a Gainesville Wal-Mart. It was at this store that he had seen his
first two victims: two UF freshman girls, Sonja Larson, 18, and
Christina Powell, 17, buying things for their new apartment.
They were several aisles over as he walked through the
checkout with a stolen screwdriver, roll of duct tape and two
pairs of gloves. After shopping, he followed the girls to their
Williamsburg Village apartment.
He watched through their- window as they washed
dishes. In his black outfit, ski mask and athletic gloves, he
waited until 3 a.m. before he crept up to their second-floor
apartment.
Sixteen steps up the cracked white staircase, and the hor-
ror began.
"Your honor, I've been running from first one problem
and then another all my life," he would later say to Judge
Stan Morris.
"But there are some things you just can't run from, and
this is one of those."

Suckers


GOP uses religious right

for votes, then reneges
We'd hate to be evangelical Christians right now
and no, not just because of the abstinence thing.
It has more to do with the Republican Party, next
month's election and a long list of broken promises.
For decades, conservatives have championed "family
values" prayer in schools, the Ten Commandments in
courthouses and women in the kitchen, where God intended.
They've tried to ban abortion. They've fought gay marriage,
gay adoption and "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" tooth and
nail. And at every turn, they've put Jesus front and center.
But what have Republicans actually delivered to their
supporters on the Christian right? Abortion is still legal. So
is gay marriage, at least in Massachusetts. In fact, the liberal
conspiracy to destroy America of which the Alligator is a
charter-member is having a banner year.
So what gives? Could it be that Republicans who con-
trol the White House, the Supreme Court and both houses of
Congress never intended to make good on their promises?
It's starting to look that way.
Consider George W. Bush. In 2004, he supported
the Federal Marriage Amendment and conservative
Christians,'terrified of gayness in all its forms, voted for
him in droves. Then, two months after his re-election, Bush
announced he wouldn't lobby the Senate to pass the amend-
ment. But hey, thanks for voting, guys. Seriously.
Fast-forward to 2006. Once again, it's election season and
- you guessed it Bush supports another constitutional
amendment to ban same-sex marriage. It's funny how fami-
lies with two mommies are only a threat to our national exis-
tence in even-numbered years.
And what about the president's "compassion agenda"?
In 2001, he promised religious charities $8 billion in new
funding and then delivered less than $80 million. David
Kuo, former deputy director of faith-based. and community
initiatives for the White House, says the Bush administration
is the latest to "milk religious groups for their votes and then
boot them unceremoniously out to pasture."
Damn, that's cold. In fact, the rest of the Republican Party
would never accept that kind of treatment. Think about it.
Big business gets its tax cuts, its steel tariffs and its Clear
Skies Act. The neoconservatives get their war in Iraq. What
do the Christians get? A shout-out here, a symbolic gesture
there but nothing in terms of actual policy. Nothing that
really matters.
Republicans have played this game for years, talking
a good game and then stiffing the religious right once the
votes are counted. But somehow it always works. Every
other November, priests and pastors across the country tell
their congregations to pull the Republican lever on Election
Day and they do it. Now that's what you call blind faith.
Even now, with the party embroiled in a sex scandal a
gay sex scandal, no less! 57 percent of white evangelical
Christians intend to. vote Republican. That's down from 78
percent two years ago, but it's still a staggering figure. Don't
you guys get it? Conservatives are playing you like an accor-
dion. A big, stupid accordion.
Of course, the Alligator doesn't share your values. We're
torn between laughing at you and cowering in fear. But when
you come down to it, the Republican Party doesn't like you
either. Keep that in mind when you vote next month or
when you don't, as the case may be.

Students don't cae and SG knows it
Students don't care and SG knows it


So the Alligator has taken a stand for online voting.
That's great. But there's just one problem: It's not
going to happen just like a lot of things aren't
going to happen, no matter how many students want
them.
Why not? Because no one really wants them badly
enough. That's why. If we were to give everyone online
voting, it wouldn't matter they still wouldn't vote.
We could install a special "vote" button in every dorm,
yet no one would use it.
And you know what? Unless I'm overestimating
them, the people in Student Government know this.
And if they were smart in the political sense they
would be glad for it. To illustrate, let's have a quick les-
son in SG politics.
Everyone knows how elections work, I hope. We put
John Doe in office, and he's supposed to do what we
want him to do. But here's the kicker: John Doe knows
that.even if he fails us, no matter how much we piss and
moan and gripe at him to get in line, it doesn't matter.
We don't care enough to fire him. So all John Doe has
to do is keep just enough friends frats, in this case
- around to stay in office.
That's why we'll never have online voting because
students don't care enough to fire the people who won't
give it to us. The same thing happens in American poli-
tics. Why else would George W. Bush continue to hold
public office?
In case you didn't know, the SG voting system is
decided by one man, the supervisor of elections. That
person is selected by the Student Body president and
confirmed by the Senate not unlike, say, the secretary
of state.


So ultimately, if you want
online elections, you'll have to
make sure the president and at
S least half the Senate will agree
with you. Therein lies the prob-
lem it won't happen.
Daniel Burroughs See, first we have to elect
Dan Demands the right people. Then they're
letters@alligator.org supposed to give us online
elections, among other things.
Understand?
But I don't see the need for online voting if no one
is going to use it. If you don't want something badly
enough to walk to the nearest voting booth, then you
don't really want it at all. Students of UF: If you want
something done, you'll have to sacrifice a bit of your
free time to make it happen.
If the political will existed, there would be nothing
standing in the way of students' desires. If SG didn't do
what we wanted, we could shut down the whole damn
system.
Any organization that gets $12 million a year has a
responsibility to serve, unwaveringly, those who give
it to them. If I were paying someone $12 million, they'd
have no room for opinion. They'd jump when told to, or
they'd be unemployed. Unfortunately, the student body
isn't willing to make itself heard.
But you know what the crazy part is? The people
in SG like all good politicians know this. In that
regard, they're smarter than the average student. And
that's exactly why they'll never fail to disappoint you.

Letters to ''. -:
No need to curb eminent domain in Fla.
Amendment 8 is the Florida Legislature's
knee-jerk reaction to a Supreme Court ruling.
It's also unnecessary. Florida already has some
of the strictest growth-management laws and
eminent domain controls in the nation.
Eminent domain is a last-resort measure
that cities and municipalities have to use
for the common good in some cases. Local
planning departments can't so much as
write an ordinance without consulting the
state. Florida's current growth-management
Regulations require state approvals, public
hearings and public notices for any large
development.
The long-term effects of Amendment 8 will
be harmful to smaller, less developed commu-
nities throughout the state. Do we really want


the Legislature to have more control over lo-
cal government actions and initiatives? What
do the people in Tallahassee know about what
is going on at the local level? In my experience
working with municipalities, the state and the
Department of Community Affairs don't
have a clue. Eminent domain isn't broken in
Florida, so don't fix it.

U.S. should celebrate linguistic diversity
It's hard to believe Gerald Liles, who
studies history, actually believes it's impos-
sible for Americans to communicate with


one another without a national language.
Evidently, he's never been to Europe
- where people in many different countries
live in close proximity, each speaking in a
different tongue.
In most parts of the world, people actu-
ally travel to the country next door, go shop-
ping there and speak the local language.
Americans and other English speakers, who
refuse to learn other languages, are the ex-
ception not the rule. Accordingly, English
should not be America's official language.
This is a nation of immigrants, so it's
everyone's responsibility to reach out and
understand everyone else. We have so many
languages to choose from: French, Spanish,
German, Portuguese, Russian, Chinese,
Japanese, Korean I could go on and on.


In reality, we're already multicultural and
multilingual. Let's celebrate it.

I love calculus and it loves me back
Why can't a person fulfill his or her
higher emotional needs in the pursuit of sci-
entific knowledge? Studying the humanities
is no better than studying calculus or physi-
cal chemistry. This should go without saying
- but if Jessica Holland's Tuesday column is
any indication, some people just don't get it.

Behind Enemy Lines


Visiting Gators braved the Auburn fans


By JOHN W. COX
Alligator Contributing Writer


At 4:15 a.m., on a strange floor
in an unknown room, wrapped in
a sleeping bag that felt more like
a pillowcase, I awoke to a high-
pitched wail.
My head throbbed. It felt like
a dream. But why was Michelle
Branch singing in my dream? Why
was I tangled in a tiny sleeping
bag?
I unzipped my straight jacket
and pulled myself up to slap at the
alarm cock until it stopped.
As the screaming faded, my
head started to clear, and slowly, I
realized where I was.
This was game day, and I was
in Auburn, Ala., for the UF foot-
ball team's 81st meeting with the
Auburn Tigers. We weren't wak-
ing up at this ungodly hour for no
reason. We had a purpose: We were
painting ourselves.
Like Celtic warriors on the
plains of Britain hundreds of
years ago, my cohort, SFCC junior
Andrew Hallock, and I were pre-
paring for battle.
We had decided five days before,
in a vision of revelry, that we would
drive 310.48 miles according
to Mapquest.com to attend the
game. But that wasn't enough. We
would paint our bodies for ESPN's
College GameDay GameDay
- a nationally televised football
commentary show selects the
campus hosting the country's best
game each Saturday and broadcasts
on site, surrounded by hundreds of
fans from both schools.
At the-time, it seemed like a
good idea.
I was the "F" half of our UF ac-
ronym. At times, it was a reversible
message
The blue and orange paint dned
in about 15 minutes The orange
hair -pray had hardened \Ve were

He snatched -a blue-and-orange UF
flag from the back seat, swung open
the door and dashed to where the
vehicle sat in the middle of the
packed intersection. After running
around it screaming "Go Gators,"
he jumped back into our car, just as
the light turned green.
After a few more assaults on
Auburn alumni, we rolled onto the
150-year-old university campus.
Auburn University is in the
heart of America's Bible Belt. Locals
hold their slow-cooked barbecues,
American pick-ups and hunting
camps cose to their hearts. In town,
I overheard "dadgummit" more
than the F-word. Local politicians
run radio ads proclaiming their
"strict conservative values," which
Lee County residents deem neces-
sary for any good leader. And they
never fail to mention their loyal
support for Republican Gov. Bob
Reilly.
You won't find any dance cubs
or trendy lounges in this town.
Fraternity houses bring bands in
on Friday nights during football
season. Most girls prefer guys with
shaggy haircuts, a good hunting
rifle and a crack shot. A guy with
"product" in his hair might have
his sexual orientation questioned.
Some students spend their
weekend nights in October rid-
ing on Pope's Haunted Hayride,
about 25 minutes outside of town.
Eugene, the man who took the tick-
ets for the ride on the 200-acre farm,
said the ride has been around for at
least 15 years.
"It just doesn't get no more fun
than this right here," he told me
with a smile.
But nothing matters more to the
fraternity brothers, sorority sisters,
alumni, town residents and the sev-
eral thousand student living in the
city'' trailer parks ijst off campus
than the Tigers. who take the field
on Saturday during Fall semester
At 5 a m that Saturda.y we-
were dropped ott next to the
ESPN GameDay set and w\e
.saw how much the tans re-
ally cared. A line ot about 30
students had already\ formed out-
-ide the gate to the held the cam-
eras %w would pan acro--s. Some had
camped all rught in the cold
Andrew and I walked to the
back of the line through spurts
of boos The ;un -eemed to nek er
come I bounced and rubbed my
hands together in an effort to
stay warm but it i\as useless
The thin coat ot paint uttered little
warmth
Alter three hours of taking pic-
tures i\%th curious onlookers and


listening to Auburn fight songs
- often just a compilation of made-
up words ending with "Kick 'em in
the butt, Big Blue" the ESPN staff
finally let us into the small valley
behind the GameDay set.
We drew immediate attention. A
reporter from the Ledger-Enquirer
newspaper in Columbus, Ga., ap-
proached us for a story he was
writing.
"Are you guys cold?" he asked
with a look of pity.
"We're freezing," we responded
in unison.

Going
shirtless and
covering
ourselves in paint
wasn't the only
questionable
decision of our
weekend.

But the "Blue Boys U and F," as
we were nicknamed in a Sunday
article of the Columbus newspaper,
kept on. We hadn't come all this
way to just be harassed by drunken
Auburn fans. We were here to get
on TV and support our boys.
Soon after our arrival, we got
our wish.
The director of GameDay was
searching the crowd for fans to be
iricluded in a cose-up shot they
were filming before the show.
"OK. Let's get the blue guys
over here," he said.
They brought us behind the gate
and told us to kneel
in front of a green
i screen. After se\ eral
..4 B practice shots by


the cameraman, they told us to get
'ready for the real thing.
"What should we do?" Andrew
whispered.
Just do the chomp, dude," I
said.
So we did. After about a 15-
second shot, it was over. Andrew
and I chomped and hollered into
a camera, with highlights superim-
posed onto the green screen behind
us. Finally, waking up at 4:15 a.m.
seemed worth it. I had lost partial
feeling in my .chest and face, but we
were on national TV.
But, alas, we were still sur-
rounded by hundreds of Auburn
fans who didn't appreciate us as
much as the TV cameras did.
Fans booed us, yelled at us and
told us to go back to Gainesville.
But others were just confused.
One middle-aged woman in an
Auburn blue shirt and matching
shorts spotted a large bird soaring
overhead and yelled, "It's an eagle.
It's an eagle."
According to legend, Auburn's
bonus mascot, the eagle, was born
during the school's first football
game in 1892. A Civil War veteran
was also a teacher at the university.
During the war, he found and cared
for an eagle named Anvre, which
he kept during his time on campus.
During the school's first game,
Anvre left his master's side and
circled the field. Auburn's players
were inspired and beat Georgia in
the inaugural contest.
Evidently, the woman saw the
bird's presence as a kind of Second
Coming.
"It's an omen," she said as she
waved at it.
"Isn't that a buzzard?" I said.
As she realized that the bird was
in fact not an eagle, she shot me a
hard glare.
"I hope it shits on their heads,"
she responded refer-
ring to LT fans. I

Before the game, Andrew and I
decided to wash the paint off. After
45 minutes of scrubbing, I was
white again, and we headed back
to campus. The pregame festivities
were typical of Southern universi-
ties. Fraternity boys wore ties and
sport coats, and the sorority wom-
en wore dresses or skirts. Almost
everyone sported a beer.
They told stories about the last
time the Gators came to town. They
came to Auburn with a No. 2 rank-
ing and left with a new loss. They
talked about how much they hate
the University of Alabama, a sub-
ject that never seems to go away.
One sorority girl explained how
to sneak flasks of whiskey into the
game. without getting caught by
security guards.
"You just wear a skirt or dress
and tape it to your leg," she said,
pointing at her thigh. "It's easy
-- they never catch you."
At about 6:45 that night, we
made our way into the stadium.
The next four hours were a blur. A
game that started with such prom-
ise ended with the kind of feeling
you get from eating too much
candy after Halloween.
As I stood outside the stadium
trying to get cell phone reception,
almost everyone had something
to say. I was told to go back to
Gainesville again; I was called "ti-
ger meat;" I was given a stiff finger
and reproached with "war eagle"
for at least the thousandth time.
One of the more sober Tiger fans
walked straight up to me with a
look of sympathy and took off his
hatto shake my hand, as if he were
at a funeral.
"It's OK, man," he said. "You
guys played a good game."
But probably the sagest advice I
got was from a fellow UF fan out-
side the stadium. who had a com-
forting hometown solution
"Just drink tour shots.' she said
you'lll feel better

Effects of alcohol easy to see with beer goggles


By BRYNN HUYSMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

She hadn't had anything to
drink, but Cara Capitena felt
drunk.
The UF sophomore tried to walk
in a straight line, took two steps
and almost fell.
"I tried to high-five people," she
said. "And I missed every time."
Capitena was just one of many
students who felt the effects of al-
cohol Tuesday in front of the Reitz
Union Colonnade.
The event, which used beer


goggles and a rollover simulator
to warn students to buckle up and
not to drive after drinking, was
cosponsored by Florida Highway
Patrol and the Students Against
Destructive Decisions committee of
Alpha Epsilon Delta, a pre-health
organization.
"Everybody always loves the
beer goggles," said officer Darin
Gentry of the University Police
Department.
The rollover simulator brought
by the FHP rotated the cutoff front
of a car, as though the car were roll-
ing over.
Once the car began to spin, the


two dummies inside flew out of the
side windows and hit the ground.
Gentry said he heard gasps from
the crowd.
"Everybody always loves
the beer goggles."
Darin Gentry
University Police Department
officer

The simulation replicated an ac-
cident in which a driver overturned
a vehicle travelling at less than 20
mph.


Gentry said the simulation was
realistic and got students thinking
about wearing seat belts.
"A lot of people hear things, but
it doesn't sink in until you see it,"
he said.
The event has been held at UF
for the past five or six years, al-
though it usually takes place in the
Spring, said Lt. Mike Burroughs,
FHP spokesman.
The event costs about $1,000 and
was paid for by the FHP, he said.
The UF partner decided to
have the presentation before the
holidays, especially since teenage
fatalities have risen in the past two


or three years, Burroughs said.
The presentation was an effort
to educate students not only about
how drinking can impair a person's
driving, but also about the impor-
tance of buckling up when getting
behind the wheel.
Burroughs, Gentry and other
officers manned the event from
morning until afternoon, allowing
students to try on the "beer gog-
gles" and attempt to play a game of
catch while wearing them.
"We're trying to mix in humor,
make it fun and at the same time
get a serious message across,"
Burroughs said.

Borsanyi impresses coach with solid transition on tennis court


TENNIS, from page 19


your way" fast food eating habits.
"It's not the same here because you have
so much fast food, and we have real food,"
she said with a chuckle. "We have goulash
soup, and fish soup is so good."
Borsanyi will admit to enjoying one
American classic though: Fried chicken is
one of her favorite meals.


One area where Borsanyi's transition
has been nearly seamless has been or the
tennis court. She's excelled well beyond
her coach's expectations,. and Thornqvist
considers her and fellow freshman Megan
Alexander to be the team's X-factors.
"[Borsanyi has] gotten better since she's
gotten here," Thornqvist said. "The main
reason she's gotten here is because she's
coachable. T"h's the key for any player that
wants to improve. I think she was much bet-
ter in the [Gator Fall Classic] than in practice,


"I think [Borsanyi] was much bet-
ter in the tournament this past
weekend than in practice, which
you love to see as a coach."
Roland Thornqvist
UF women's tennis coach

which you love to see as a coach."
Thornqvist is also aware that Borsanyi has
some pretty lofty goals, something he doesn't


mind at all.
"One of Csilla's goals is to eventually
make it to the pro level," Thornqvist said.
"I think that's one of the reasons why she
came to UF. And we'll coach her with that
in mind."
If Borsanyi achieves her goals at UF, she'll
have an NCAA Championship ring in one
hand and a plane ticket to Wimbledon in the
other.
Then, all of the homesickness and lan-
guage barriers will be well worth it.


Mitchell broke Ben Gordon's career points record at Mt. Vernon High


HOOPS, from page 20

always together."
A native New Yorker, Mitchell
began shooting hoops as a fourth- or
fifth-grader.
Like most kids his age, he grew
up idolizing Michael Jordan, but he
would eventually break the record
of a different Chicago Bulls player.
In his senior year at Mt. Vernon
High School, Mitchell scored
enough buckets to knock out Bulls


guard Ben Gordon as the school's
all-time scoring leader with 1,758
points.
"It was a great personal goal of
mine coming into my senior year,"
Mitchell said. "I spoke to Ben, and
he told me records are meant to be
broken, so he kind of passed the
torch to me."
Last year, he was honored as
New York's Mr. Basketball.
"Nobody from miy school ever re-
ceived that award before," Mitchell
said. "The whole summer coming
into my senior year, I worked real


hard, and it paid off for me."
That hard work earned him a
ticket to Gainesville to play along-
side some of the
best players. in
the country.
Donovan has
already started
A" implementing
Mitchell into the
system and ex-
Mitchell perimenting with
the forward's
abilities.
"I am probably throwing too


much at him right now by having
him try to learn two different posi-
tions," Donovan said. "I am prob-
ably going to have to settle in at one
spot for him right now because he is
just not capable of picking it all up.
Most freshmen are not."
Mitchell will likely back up
Corey Brewer, and he has been tak-
ing notes from the third-year starter.
"There's not a day that goes
by that he doesn't teach me some-
thing," Mitchell said. "He told me to
be patient and let everything come
to you. Don't try to force anything."


While Mitchell is adjusting just
fine to life on the court with his
famous teammates, he's still wrap-
ping his head around life off the
court with them.
"Sometimes it's kind of funny
because many people don't know
who I am," he said. "I just kind of
drift back and just kind of evaluate
everyone sort of approach them
- with all the signing autographs
on the shirts and the sneakers. I'm
just kind of like, 'Wow. People re-
ally love Florida basketball here in
Gainesville.'"

Meyer disagrees with call


FOOT from page 20


if he had the chance.
REPLAY CONTROVERSY: After re-
viewing the tape of Saturday's
game, Meyer said officials
should have called Leak's
fourth-quarter fumble an in-
complete pass. While the play
was ruled a fumble before and
after replay review, Meyer said
that video evidence shows
that Leak's arm was moving


forward, and by rule, the play
should have been called an in-
complete pass.
"We've talked to the SEC of-
ficials, and they've said it was
a correct ruling," Meyer said.
"I can sit and scream and yell
and all that, but we have too
many other things to worry
about. We're very disappointed
with the way it worked because
I should never have to bur a
timeout. But they agree with
that, and they're going to cor-
rect that."


MOTION, from page 20


His absence leaves Smith with no real competi-
tion.
Honestly, who else is out there?
Brady Quinn? Exposed against Michigan.
Garrett Wolfe? Plays in the Mid-American
Conference.
Pat White and Steve Slaton? They might be
products of their system.
Calvin Johnson? Receiver who doesn't return
kicks.
Notice that Chris Leak isn't on this list, and


it isn't because of his disastrous -fourth quarter
against Auburn.
Leak lost any chance of the award a month ago
against Tennessee on two consecutive fourth-quar-
ter plays; first sliding a yard short on third-and-5
and then being lifted while Tim Tebow ran for the
first down.
I don't care about -Tebow's running prowess.
The best player in college football is on the field on
fourth-and-1. Period.
So when you're sitting in front of your TV
watching Srmth hoist that bronze statue with its
outstretched arm, ask yourself this question: Is this
really the best that college football has to offer?

Foreign Service


Hungarian adapts to American culture ..


By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Writer


Csilla Borsanyi misses what it's
like to watch a play and follow the
plotline. She misses going to Bible
study and reading along.
Borsanyi, 19, is a Hungarian
native and has a bit more to deal
with than the average college
freshman. As a highly touted
recruit, Borsanyi is expected
to be a key member of a tennis
team that's won five consecutive
Southeastern Conference champi-
onships and a national champion-
ship.
And that's on top of the fact
that she's only been in the United
States since August and has to ac-
climate to a new lifestyle.
That would be overwhelming
for most freshmen, but Borsanyi
has been making a smooth adjust-
ment to UF.
That's not to say it's been a
walk in the park, or in Borsanyi's
case, a walk by the lake. She lists
afternoon walks with her dog,
Maggie, by a nearby lake, as one
of the main things she misses
about her hometown of Siofok. .
Going to church has also been
difficult for Borsanyi as well
because of the language barrier.
Understanding the passages be-
ing read out of the Bible has been
a challenge for the freshman.
"It's hard because I couldn't
understand the context," she said.
"I went to the church and it was
fun, but I couldn't understand the
sermon."


Borsanyi is taking steps to im-
prove her English. Soon after her
arrival in Gainesville, she asked
her academic advisor to enroll
her in an English lab. And to help
her adjust to life in Gainesville,
Borsanyi has a group of friends
and teammates to guide her.
Coach Roland Thorqvist
has been key in aiding Borsanyi.
Thorqvist discovered her at
the European Championships
last summer and kept in touch
throughout the year. A Swedish
native himself, he can relate to
what Borsanyi is experiencing,
Thornqvist went through the
same process himself when he ar-
rived in Gainesville 15 years ago.
"The hardest thing to get
used to is studying in Eng-
lish. I always have to learn
the words first and then
study the material, so it
takes extra time."
Csilla Borsanyi
UF tennis player

"The first couple of months
are always the toughest," he said.
"We just try to always keep the
door open for her if she wants to
ask questions and stuff like that."
Thomqvist makes sure his
veteran leaders help nurture the
younger players. In this case,
senior Nina Suvak, a Slovenian,
serves as Borsanyi's mentor.
"Coming here from a dif-
ferent country is a whole new


experience. It's completely dif-
ferent," Suvak said. "I can still
remember my freshman year, so
of course we've all been there for
her. Whatever she needs, we tell
her every day not to be scared to
ask."
Borsanyi also feels lucky to
have freshman volleyball player
Elyse Cusack as a roommate.
"The first time I came here, I
didn't know where anything was.
So she would give me a ride and
bring me breakfast sometimes,"
Borsanyi said.
Cusack has also been help-
ing her roommate complete her
homework assignments. Cusack,
a Gainesville native, doesn't mind
giving her new roommate a help-
ing hand. In fact, she's amazed at
how Borsanyi has dealt with her
new surroundings.
"I couldn't even imagine my-
self going to Georgia," Cusack
said. "Even a new campus in
the same country, it would be so
hard not knowing anything. But,
to come from Hungary and not
know the town and not speak
great English, I could never imag-
ine that."
Borsanyi said the language
barrier is her toughest challenge.
"The hardest thing to get
used to is studying in English,"
Borsanyi said. "I always have to
learn the words first and then
study the material, so it takes ex-
tra time. But, I have my suitemates
to help me; they're very nice."
Despite the help from her
teammates, coaches and room-

Freshman adds to


family atmosphere


By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
jmarina@alligator.org

Before Jonathan Mitchell
became a disciple of UF coach
Billy Donovan, he worshipped
the devils.
"Growing up, I was a big
Duke fan," Mitchell said.
"But I mean, what kid really
wasn't one? Everybody kind
of idolized the whole Duke
program."
Eventually, the Blue Devils
lost their luster, and when
some of the bigger schools in
the. country started recruiting

Itiocked out of the national championship pic-
ture at least for now the No. 9 Gators went back
to the drawing board Tuesday.
Coach Urban Meyer said UF's emotional 27-17
loss to Auburn on Saturday was a major disappoint-
ment, and the team will have to learn from it.
"Complete devastation," Meyer said of the
team's attitude. "But you have to bounce back. The
'96 football team did. The 2006 basketball team did.
These guys will bounce back."
Meyer said UF's goal of a Southeastern
Conference title is still intact. The Gators have three
remaining SEC games Georgia, Vanderbilt and
South Carolina and if they win each, UF will rep-
resent the SEC East in the conference championship
game in Atlanta.
Quarterback Chris Leak, coming off one the
worst performances of his career Saturday, said the
team hasn't lost focus and UF's 23 seniors are keep-
ing everyone in line.
"The way you bounce back is just stay strong and
stay together," Leak said. "That's what you have to
do to get to Atlanta."

PEEVED PUNTER: Senior punter Eric Wilbur spoke
Tuesday for the first time since dropping a snap that
led to the game-winning touchdown for Auburn.
Wilbur expressed his remorse and blamed him-


self for UF's loss to Auburn..
"I felt like shit," Wilbur said. "What can you feel
like? Basically, I feel like I just blew the game."
On the play, Wilbur fumbled the snap, picked
it up and attempted to punt the ball anyway. But
it was blocked by Auburn's Jerraud Powers and
returned 15 yards for a touchdown by Tre Smith,
giving the Tigers an 18-17 lead with 4:09 left in the
third quarter.
"The way you bounce back is just stay
strong and stay together. That's what
you have to do to get to Atlanta."
Chris Leak
UF quarterback

"I was looking at their front line, watching to see
what they were doing," Wilbur said. "They had a
couple twists going on, and from their formation, I
was expecting a check and I just lost focus.
"They snapped the ball. Good snap. Good protec-
tion. It just hit me right in the hands and I dropped
it."
Wilbur had an opportunity to fall on the ball,
which would have given the Tigers possession
around the UF 15-yard line. Instead, he tried to get
off a rugby-style kick. Wilbur said he never falls on a
kick, and that he saw an opportunity to get the ball
off. He said he would do the same thing over again

him, the Gators freshman for-

he developed a familial bond
with the coaching staff.
Once he came to Gainesville
as one of four new recruits to
the UF men's
basketball
team and met
the rest of his

Heisman too predictable


et me give you a sneak pre-
view of what you're going
to see come Dec. 9 in New
York City.
Troy Smith is going to win the
Heisman Trophy.
It's over, decided and done with,
and it's only mid-October.
Every week, we're subjected to
the latest rankings of some expert
as to who is going to win the award
months later.
It's ironic that football is viewed
as the ultimate team game, and yet
so much.attention is paid to a single
award that is supposed to identify
the best player in the game.
But honestly, how often does it
even do that?
Gators fans need look no further
than Rex Grossman in 2001, a year
in which he threw for 3,896 yards
and 34 touchdowns against 12 in-
terceptions, yet the award went to
Nebraska's Eric Crouch, an option
quarterback.
In 2003, Jason White was the
quarterback of an Oklahoma team
that steamrolled through the regu-
lar season undefeated before being
shellacked by Kansas State in the
Big 12 title game.
That same year, Pittsburgh's
Larry Fitzgerald put together what
may have been the best season
ever by a wide receiver, hauling in
92 catches for 1,672 yards, yet he


lost out on
the award
to White, re-
vealing two
clear biases in
the system.
Dan Treat If you're a
Dan in Motion quarterback
dtreat@alligator.org on a regular-
season unde-
feated team,
you move to the front of the line.
If you're a wide receiver and you
don't return kicks, move to the back
of the line.
Only two true wideouts have
ever been deemed worthy of the
award, and both of them, Tim
Brown and Desmond Howard,
made a splash returning kicks.
Only one defender, Michigan's
Charles Woodson, has ever won the
award.
Grossman also fell victim to an-
other unwritten criterion: A player
must be an upperclassman.
This also felled the chances of
Herschel Walker in 1980 and Adrian
Peterson in 2004 (although Walker
ended up winning in 1982).
Peterson was probably the best
player in the country this year before
breaking his collarbone Saturday,
possibly ending his college career.
He had piled up 935 yards and 10
touchdowns in just six games.

S1958: The Gators hold Vanderbilt to -1 yards
passing, the only time in UF history an opponent
has passed for negative yards. Still, the Gators
were unable to defeat the Commodores, as the
game ended in a 6-6 tie.


SUF quarterback Chris Leak has been
selected as a semi-finalist'for the 2006

bined academic success, football perfor-
mance and community leadership.
