U A KILLER'S END U



DANNY ROLLING DEAD

Crowds praised,, .",,. ;

protested death
By DOMINICK TAO
Alligator Writer
dtao@alligator.org

When Danny Rolling was asked if he
had any last words, the murderer looked .
through the glass of the execution chamber,
replied "yes" and sang a hymn.
Rolling died about 12 minutes later as
lethal chemical coursed
through his body. His
execution Wednesday
evening marked the end
of his 12 years on death
row.
He sang the hymn in a
way a witness described
Rolling as "haunting," repeating
the refrain, "None greater
than thee, O Lord, none greater than thee."
Even though prison officials stopped
broadcasting Rolling's words to the 47 spec-
tators including media and family mem-
bers after about two minutes, witnesses :
say his lips continued to move almost until -
the time his chest stopped rising and falling c..
at 6:11 p.m.
After the execution, the families -of -Marvin Halelamien/ Alligator
Rolling's victims gathered at a press confer-
ence in a field across the highway from the Sandra Sundberg and her husband Don, once friends of murder victims Tracy Paules and Manny Taboada, react to seeing the
hearse carrying the body of Danny Rolling after his execution at Florida State Prison in Raiford on Wednesday evening.

Machen pushes for progress in UF's green efforts


SUF'S PRESIDENT LAUDED WORK

UF has gotten greener since last year,
but the campus still isn't green enough for
UF President Bernie Machen.
Machen praised UF's push for an envi-
ronmentally friendly campus Wednesday
in the Reitz Union Auditorium, but he also

told the 200 or so people attending that the
university has a long way to go.
Last October, Machen said he wanted
UF to move toward becoming more sus-
tainable, or more able to use its resources
in a way that limits environmental im-
pact.
Machen's speech opened the Campus
and Community Sustainability Conference,
which continues through today. Part of the
speech outlined plans for the second year
of UF's sustainability efforts.
"We have come a good distance from
where we were a year ago," he said, "but

He said the campus required 4 million
trash bags last year, which equals 163 tons
of empty trash bags that ended up in a
landfill.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Election creeps up on voting drive


By JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Writer
jdasilva@alligator.org

Two years ago, Student Government's Chomp the Vote
program used thousands of dollars to encourage voter reg-
istration but the program's current director didn't ask for
any money this year.
"No one gave me any information coming into it," Chomp
the Vote director Hannah Hillman said. "Honestly, I wasn't
sure what I was supposed to request for."
Chomp the Vote efforts have been much less visible than
they were in 2004, when former director Jared Hemandez
gave students free limousine rides to vote early.
Hemandez, a UF law student, used about $8,500 of student
money for a voter registration drive. But Hillman said her
plans for the Nov. 7 election do not require a lot of money.
Hillman, who was appointed to her position this Summer
by Student Body President John Boyles, said she will set up
two tables on campus to hand out information about candi-
dates and "issues going on locally."
Boyles said he appointed Hillman after a "far more quali-
fied" candidate declined his offer for the post.
Hillman said she originally planned a campuswide
registration drive to hand out voter registration forms on
Turlington Plaza, on the Reitz Union Colonnade and in UF
dorms. She also wanted to set up an on-campus station where
students could drop off forms.
But Hillman said the drive didn't happen because of time.
"I wanted to do it, but it all came too quickly," she said,
adding she is planning the drive for local elections in Spring.
Hillman also said she's trying to develop Chomp the Vote,
which she doesn't think is "looked at as a serious program
right now."
Chomp the Vote was started in Summer 2004 by former
Student Body President Jamal Sowell, who was approached


about student voting issues by Hemandez.
"We had an administration and a Senate who was very
supportive of the issue, but I guess priorities have changed,"
Hernandez said.
When the program was initiated, SG granted about $8,500
toward the program, which registered 8,000 first-time voters.
In addition to voter registration, Hemandez said, the
program also focused on informing students about election
issues and ensuring that registered students voted.
The program provided a voter's guide, information
on early voting and the free limousine rides for students
- which were later halted due to low turnout.
"Honestly, I wasn't sure what I was supposed
to request for."
Hannah Hillman
Chomp the Vote director

"We showed that (Chomp) could be successful,"
Hemandez said. "It's a shame; it was a such a good pro-
gram."
But Boyles said funding was easier to get in 2004 because
the program was entering its first year. Chomp the Vote
couldn't expect to pull in thousands of dollars this year be-
cause there's a "financial crisis" at hand in SG, he said.
In an e-mail, Boyles wrote that too many programs use
SG's rainy-day fund, which in part spurred financial woes.
However, Boyles said this year's Chomp the Vote program
has done a lot to educate students, such as bringing candi-
dates for county and state offices to speak at Student Senate
meetings. However, SG lobbying coordinator Jason Lutin
later said the candidates were sent through his office.
Hillman said that because Chomp the Vote does not collect
the forms, she doesn't know how many students have actu-
ally registered because of the program.

Children's


artwork


auctioned

By MICHELLE DEFILLIP
Alligator Contributing Writer

Patients of Shands Children's
Hospital have been putting their
creative talents to use, crafting one-
of-a-kind artwork to be auctioned off
for charity today.
Current and previous pediatric
patients created artwork through
participation in Shands Arts-in-
Medicine program to appear in
the fifth annual "Art Through the
Eyes of a Child" Art Auction to ben-
efit the Children's Miracle Network.
The auction, at the UF
Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine
Institute on 34th Street, will feature
ceramics, woodwork, canvas paint-
ings and other unique items, said
Annie Morton, project coordinator
of Children's Miracle Network.
Among the pieces to be auctioned
off are scarves and purses with the
children's work, Morton said.
The Arts-in-Medicine program is
designed to keep children optimistic
and distract them from what is going
on in the hospital, Morton said. The
children have the opportunity to do
art in several different settings such
as at their bedsides, in intensive care,
admissions waiting rooms or while
awaiting a surgical procedure.
More than 100 pieces of artwork,
designed with a "Wish Upon a Star"
theme, willbe displayed during both
live and silent auctions at the event,
Morton said. A variety of flower pots
and a ceramic
Around garden bench are
-- '.- aong some of
the art pieces to be
auctioned off.
Each piece of artwork will have
a story card on display, introducing
the artist and explaining what the -
piece of art is about, she said.
Morton said the Children's
Miracle Network expects to have
between four and six of the artists'
families in attendance. The families
will be introduced and given an op-
portunity to speak about their expe-
riences at the Children's Hospital.
The event will begin for VIP
ticket holders at 5:30 p.m. General
admission to the auction will begin
at 6:30 p.m. with a dinner donated
and catered by Carrabba's Italian
Grill.
Last year's event raised approxi-
mately $52,000 with 200 people in at-
tendance, and expectations are high
for this year as well, Morton said.
Tickets can still be purchased
through the Children's Miracle
Network at the event. VIP tickets
sold for $50 and general admission
tickets are $35.
Morton said the event is a great
way for members of the community
to learn about Shands.
"The children are so happy to
share their experience with the com-
munity," she said.

Conference attracted

statewide leaders

SUSTAINABILITY, from page 1

ference was efficient, since it came from local mar-
kets and didn't require much fuel in transportation.
Conference attendees could dine on local chicken
and Gulf of Mexico shrimp-- "even regionally raised
alligator tail, if that's to your liking," Machen said.
Twenty-one Florida universities and colleges
are represented at the conference, along with city
and community leaders from all over the state,
DeLongpre said.
The goal of the conference is to encourage schools,
and communities to share ideas on how to be less
harmful to the environment, she added.
Machen said there are other dimensions to sus-
tainability than just alternative energy sources and
limited consumption.
Educating UF students about sustainability is key,
he said. He hopes to encourage UF graduates "to live
that lifestyle."
Transportation at UF is among the most environ-
mentally friendly of all the nation's universities, he
said, thanks to bicycle access and Gainesville's bus
system. Additionally, UF's first ethanol fuel station
was installed in August.
Rinker Hall was also designed with the environ-
ment in mind. It uses rainwater to flush toilets, has
waterless urinals and sunlight provides most light-
ing.
But even with all the progress since last October,
Machen said, UF can do a lot more.
The good news is that we know what to do, he
said.
"The biggest goal of sustainability is nothing less
than to save the planet," he said.

Throw us a bone

U.S. neglects students

as lenders make a killing
The indignities of student life take on a certain glamour
after a while call it poverty chic. But it's not just for
undergraduates anymore. Chances are, you'll be living
that way for a long, long time.
Since 2001, tuition at public universities has shot up by 35
percent, more than three times the rate of inflation. Meanwhile,
the average family's income has fallen. So has funding for Pell
Grants and other forms of student aid. As college costs more
and more, Americans are making less and less -but somehow,
enrollment keeps rising. What's the catch?.
Debt, naturally. Students are borrowing like never before -
in fact, we're borrowing more than universities and the federal
government can spare. That's why private education lenders,
which didn't even exist when our parents went to college, now
provide about 20 percent of all student loans. That's bad news..
Banks charge higher interest than the people in Criser Hall,
of course sometimes as much as 19 percent. But that's just the
tip of the iceberg. Unlike nonprofit lenders, they also turn away
students with bad credit. And forget about consolidating your
debt after graduation private loans aren't eligible for that.
Unfortunately, some students can't pay for school without
turning to predatory lenders for help. Politicians from both par-
ties talk a good game about "valuing education" and "investing
in the future" but instead of removing the limits on federal
Stafford Student Loans, for example, they sit back and watch as
their constituents sell themselves into bondage. Thanks, guys.
With congressional elections in less than two weeks, you'll
be hearing about plenty of domestic issues: gay marriage, prop-
erty taxes, insurance and did we mention gay marriage? But
it seems student debt isn't high on anyone's.list of priorities.
Keep that in mind on Nov. 8, when the lectures about poor turn-
out among young people start.

We don't praise UF
President Bernie
Machen very
often, with good reason
- sometimes he seems more
concerned with getting his
name in the paper than im-
proving the university. But
with this week's sustainabil-

together university adminis-
trators and local government
officials from across the state,
he's managed to do both.
That's good enough for us.
Americans have spent the
last 40 years rehashing the
same old debates abor-

ways. These are important

in the culture wars of the
1960s. Sustainability is one
of them.
Everyone on the political
spectrum has a stake in pre-
serving the quality of life
on this planet. And lately,
sustainability campaigns like
UF's have received support
from some unlikely quarters
- including the Christian
right, which launched
an "Evangelical Climate
Initiative" earlier this year.
When it comes to guarantee-
ing our survival as a species,
liberal and conservative re-
ally are irrelevant labels.
So we applaud Machen

Get your pet fix at local Humane Society


oing to college means a whole new set of experi-
ences and a whole new life. Whether you're get-
ting drunk in a new house or just plain getting
drunk during the week, it's all about spreading your
wings!
OK, for many students, college isn't what it should
be that's another column for another day.
No matter how you look at it, though, college is an
escape from the rules and structure of high school life.
And how do we take advantage of our new freedom?
Crystal meth. That's called a "bad decision."
Another, better way to take advantage of it is by
getting a pet. Maybe you always wanted one, but your
parents wouldn't let you. Maybe you miss Boopsie
and need something furry to fill the void. Either way,
you're a grown-up and you'll get a pet if you want
to, right?
Unfortunately, the rationale for most pet-buying
in Gainesville doesn't go much farther than that. You
move into an apartment, get lonely and pick up a cat or
dog somewhere. All of a sudden, you've got a purpose,
and your friends have-a reason to go to your place. Then
what happens?
If you're the kind of short-sighted jerk I'm talking
about, you get tired of your pet and, when you move
out, you just let him go.
Want proof? Go to any apartment complex in
Gainesville and look around the parking lot. You'll find
dozens of stray cats who once had names and homes,
but now scrounge for food.
What's the solution? Glad you asked. Gainesville's
pet-rescue organizations are easy to find online and
most of them need volunteers. But another way to help


is through a program recently
started at the Alachua County
Humane Society, five minutes
from downtown.
Students who need a dog fix
or who just want to help can
Patrick Barrett walk into the Humane Society,
Grin and Bare It spend two or three minutes fill-
letters@alligator.org ing out forms, pick the dog or
dogs they want and then go
play with them all day.
That's right. You can just take the dog of your choice
to any local dog park and let him run around outside
and play with you and other dogs for as long as you
want. When you're done, just bring him back. It's that
simple.
I once took three dogs at the same time, and each one
was incredibly well-behaved and immensely grateful
for the opportunity to run around. It's a great way to
spend an afternoon, and the dogs really need the exer-
cise and fresh air.
Also, for cat people, there's a room full of about 50
cats you can just hang out in all day. It has all types of
cats and kittens, all anxious to play with you.
So if you want a pet but not the commitment, don't
get one to keep that you'll only let down. Go to the
Humane Society, and play with the cats and dogs there.
And if you are ready for an animal of your own, don't
spend $500 at the mall. Save your money, go to the
Humane Society and get a loyal pet who needs you.
You'll be glad you did.

iLt-. to the Editor
UF favors motorists, not bicycle riders
Regarding Oct. 19's article, "Cyclists
Ticketed More": If campus police were re-
ally concerned with cyclist safety, they would
start by ticketing and towing motor vehicles
that park 24 hours a day in designated bike
lanes. Cars park illegally with impunity.
But that's just one example of UF's dis-
missive attitude toward cyclists. The lack of
sensors for bikes at "smart" traffic lights is
another as are UF's cheap, low-security
PVC bike racks. The message is dear: Forget
bike safety. Cars rule.

Crist flip-flops on woman's right to choose
Wednesday's coverage of the gubernato-
rial debate between Charlie Crist and Jim
Davis allowed Crist to get away with a real
whopper. The Alligator printed, without
comment, the state attorney general's claim
that although he's personally pro-life
- Crist wouldn't impose his views on others
as governor.
While he may say that to a statewide audi-
ence, you must remember that Crist is many
different things to many different people.
He's a craven political animal pro-life


in the Panhandle but pro-choice in South
Florida. Why can he claim both sides of an
issue? Because the press allows him to.
When South Dakota legislators passed a
law banning abortion, Crist said he'd sign a
similar bill if it came to him as governor of
Florida. That doesn't sound like he respects
the views of others. At least not like Jint
Davis, who respects a woman's choice to
have or not have an abortion and doesn't
lie when asked about it.

Rolling a product of harsh environment
Though it doesn't excuse his crimes, I think
it's important to consider that Danny Rolling
was repeatedly abused as a child and forced
to watch as his father abused his mother and
brother as well. He deserves to be punished, of
course, but I think our society should also be
condemned for producing such a man.
For his entire life, Rolling was thrown in
and out of jail. In the end, he reacted in the only
way he knew the way his father and the jail
system had inadvertently taught him. Rolling
believed that violence gives you power. What
if someone had told him differently?

Isolationism won't fix American policy
Daniel Burroughs' Wednesday column
presents a naive approach to American for-
eign policy. We can't put America first if that
means isolating ourselves from the rest of the
world.
Recall that George W. Bush was going to
be the education president before Sept. 11,
2001. A "humble" foreign policy that avoided
"nation-building" was a big part of his cam-
paign in 2000.
When he was elected, the United States
was minding its own business in fact, Bush
was sitting in a classroom when the World
Trade Center was attacked.
But where did Bush's reluctance to engage
with the rest of the world get us? Global poli-
tics aren't what they were in 1796 or even in
the 20th century. Sept. 11 changed everything
isolationism doesn't guarantee any coun-
try security. Not anymore.
Furthermore, as the wealthiest, most
powerful nation in the world, why should
America sit idle while dictators and corrupt
leaders across the globe oppress their people?
With great power comes great responsi-
bility. There are no easy answers for the U.S.
government we're hated when we don't
act and hated when we do. But today's world
won't allow us the luxury of just focusing on
* America.

Safety Zone will protect students at game
The Georgia-Florida game is one of
college football's greatest annual events.
Tragically, two UF students have died one
in 2004 and one in 2005 during the game
weekend. In previous years, students from
both universities have been injured at the
game or at the Jacksonville Landing.
The safety of students from our two uni-
versities is of paramount importance to us.
Accordingly, a Sideline Student Safety Zone
will be implemented this year. Located in
the Modis Building, just steps away from
the Landing, the zone will provide a range
of services to students in need from water
and food to transportation and medical as-
sistance.
More information on the zone is avail-
able online at www.flga.org. Just click on the
"Sideline Student Safety Zone" link.
Addressing the excessive and dangerous
use of alcohol by students has been a priority
for each of us for many years. We're proud
these two great universities are teaming up in
the Sideline Student Safety Zone to offer help
during the game. Competition on the field is
great, but through cooperation we might save
a life. Enjoy Jacksonville and enjoy the game.

A KILLER'S END

Eerie similarities


link Bundy, Rolling


A STYLE FOR EVERY STORYTM


By DREW HARWELL
Alligator Writer
dharwell@alligator.org

For the families of victims killed
in two Florida murder sprees, the
names Ted Bundy and Danny
Rolling are unforgettable.
But for others, distinguishing
the two infamous serial killers isn't
such a simple task. Their manner-
isms, methods and motivation to
kill remain hauntingly similar, while
other characteristics of the two are
quite different.
Born Nov. 24,1946 in Burlington,
Vt., Theodore Robert Bundy had
a fairly regular childhood with his
Methodist family.
"I was a normal person," Bundy
said in his final interview with psy-
chologist and TV host James Dobson
before his execution. "1 had good
friends. I led a normal life."
Daniel Harold Rolling, born May
26, 1954 in Shreveport, La., had a
harsher childhood with his abusive
father and protective Pentecostal
mother.
Both men became interested
in voyeurism and petty theft at a
young age, and both later used those
skills to stalk their victims.
Bundy was articulate, success-
ful and attractive. He dated several
women, married one during his trial
and received fan letters from wom-
en each day while he was in prison.
He did charity work, campaigned
for the Republican Party and, in the
midst of his murders, he attended
law school at the University of
Utah.
Rolling, however, was never
successful. A high school dropout,
he worked many jobs but could
never keep one for long. He had
never lived on his own, except for
in campsites he set up before his
murders. He had married once and
fathered a daughter, but he barely
saw her after his divorce.
Both men enjoyed writing songs
and traveled the country.
Bundy committed his first mur-
der in 1974 at the age of 27. He con-
tinued to kill, later confessing to 30
murders, although some estimated
he killed up to 100.
Police believe Rolling mur-
dered for the first time in 1989 in
Louisiana, although his Gainesville
murders began in 1990. He was 36.
Both men stalked their victims
beforehand, seeking white, middle-
class and college-age females. There
were several exceptions to this pref-
erence, including Bundy's rape and
murder of girls as young as 12 and
Rolling's murder of two men and an
8-year-old boy.
While Rolling broke into all
of his victims' residences to kill
them, Bundy used several differ-
ent methods: breaking into houses,
impersonating a police officer and
feigning a disability to evoke the
help, 9fhisvictims,


Though both men raped most of
their female victims before and after
they had been killed, Bundy took it
further.
He confessed that he was ob-
sessed with necrophilia, even going
so far as to return to nearly all of the
sites where he had dumped his vic-
tims' bodies to relive their rapes.
Both Bundy and Rolling terrified
Florida's college towns after mur-
dering students: Bundy at Florida
State University ard Rolling at UF.
Some believed that Rolling's
murders were inspired by Bundy's
because of the repetition of the num-
ber 24 in Bundy's life and Rolling's
murders.
Bundy, born
Nov. 24, was
executed Jan.
24, 198.9. The
Gainesville
murders, which
began Aug. 24,
started near
Bundy Archer Road,
also known as State Road 24. The
second murder was on Southwest
24th Avenue.
Joseph Aloi, a Tallahassee private
investigator, told the Alligator in
1990, "It may be just a weird coin-
cidence, but I'd say there is a. good
chance it's not."
However, Rolling confessed later
that he chose his victims when he
saw them away from their apart-
ments and followed them.
Both Bundy and Rolling were
apprehended by police months after
their first murders: Rolling for an
armed robbery, Bundy after a rou-
tine traffic stop.
Both killers blamed their horren-
dous actions on other factors. In his
final interview, Bundy told Dobson
that, though he took full responsibil-
ity for his actions, he blamed violent
media and pornography for helping
"mold and shape the kinds of vio-
lent behavior" he craved.
Rolling continually blamed his
father's strict rules and severe beat-
ings for transforming him into a
hardened killer.
Both Bundy and Rolling said that
when they killed they became a dif-
ferent being. Bundy said it was simi-
larto "beingpossessedby something
so awful and alien," while Rolling
said evil spirits named Ynnad, his
name reversed, and Gemini, a refer-
ence to the movie "The Exorcist llI,"
took over his body and made him a
tool for murder.
Both were found guilty and filed
innumerable appeals before their
death sentence. Both were sentenced
to death in Florida courtrooms.
Bundy was electrocuted nine
years after he was first sentenced
to death, while it took 12 years for
Rolling to be executed by lethal
injection. Both were executed in
the same room at the Florida State
Prison.

Herds of cows grazed less than
200 yards away.
Kristen Guilfoos, a UF tele-
communications junior covering
the execution for WRUF-AM,
called the press setup a "media
affront."
"It's almost ridiculous," she
said. "It's like a media circus. I
mean, look at all the trucks."
Rory O'Neill, a reporter for
the wire service Metro Networks,
said no one was on the scene
when he first arrived at noon. At
the 3 p.m. press conference, he
counted 17 cameras and about 50
reporters and camera operators.
Compared to other execu-
tions, he said, there was a much
greater presence of media and
protesters.
"I've never seen a crowd of
supporters," said O'Neill. "If you
talk to people, they're angry."
Bridget Murphy, a reporter for
The Florida Times-Union, said
she'd been at the scene since 3
p.m.
"Look at all of these trucks.
I haven't seen it like this since
Hurricane Charley," she said as
she walked briskly to a press
conference after Rolling's death.
She called the group of TV trucks
"satellite city."
Chris Tisch, a reporter for the


St. Petersburg Times, walked
to the press conference after he
witnessed the execution. He was
one of the few reporters who had
a seat to witness the execution,
along with reporters from The
Associated Press, The Miami
Herald, South Florida Sun-
Sentinel and several TV stations.
He said 47 witnesses, includ-
ing 12 media professionals,
watched Rolling's

conference, the
victims' family members spoke
at a lectern topped with a large
cluster of news microphones.
Tisch scribbled on a white

seated on the ground typed fe-

Diana Hoyt and Theresa Ann
Garren, both barely tall enough
to look over the lectern, spoke
solemnly to the music of snap-
ping cameras and scribbling
pens. When the stepmother and
mother of victim Christa Hoyt
stopped talking, a cacophony of
questions sounded out.
However, some photogra-
phers unfortunate enough to be
in the back aimed their questions
at reporters blocking their view.
"Down," they yelled. "C'mon,
get down in front, please?"

A frenzied mass of reporters and TV
news crews crowded around a wooden lec-
tern inside a tent, waiting for the families
to step forward and have their last word on
the man who killed their kin.
Diana Hoyt and Theresa Ann Garren,
the stepmother and mother of victim
Christa Hoyt, were the first family mem-
bers to speak.
They held hands as they approached the
microphone-studded lectern and held on
throughout the time they spoke. Hoyt held
a white tissue in her right hand.
"Today's been a very surreal day for
me," Hoyt said. "It was like a dream ... like
walking through a dream."
Hoyt, a registered nurse who works on
the pediatric floor of Shands at UF medical
center, said she has seen some of her pa-
tients die worse deaths than Rolling did.
Mario Taboada, the older brother of
murdered Manny Taboada, was the last to
speak.

Father Bob McDermott, of Gainesville's
St. Patrick's Catholic Church, prays with a
rosary before Danny Rolling's execution.


"I wish I could say something to bring
these kids back," he said. "But what's done
is done, and we go on."
Taboada spent most of his time in front
of the television cameras, urging people to
prevent history from repeating itself.
"This is not just our tragedy, this is
an American tragedy," he said. "Where's
homeland security to protect against home-
land criminals?"-
State Attorney Bill Cervone also spoke
to the chaotic semicircle of reporters.
"I'm not sure that the punishment fits
the crime, but I can tell you that Danny
Rolling will never kill again," he said.
Cervone said Rolling became "the
face of evil" for the victims' families and
Gainesville residents whom he terrorized.
He said that as he watched Rolling die,
images of what happened to the victims
went through his mind.
In the hours before Rolling was led into
the execution chamber, he spoke with his
brother, Kevin Rolling, who agreed to claim
Rolling's body after the execution. Rolling
also spoke with his spiritual adviser, Rev.
Mike Hudspeth, Wednesday afternoon.
Department of Corrections spokesman
Robby Cunningham said Rolling "ate every-
bite" of his last meal: a lobster tail, butter-
fly shrimp, a baked potato, sweet tea and
strawberry cheesecake.
Hundreds of people came for the execu-
tion both to support it and condemn it.
Most of them gathered in the field across
from the prison.
SA long line of yellow police tape and law
enforcement cars and sport utility vehicles
divided the crowd into two sides.

who applauded just after 6 p.m. when
Rolling's lethal injection was administered.

Cajun steak sandwich from Subway, said it
was his first time going to Raiford for an ex-
ecution, but he said it was important to him
because Rolling terrorized his town.
"I was born and raised in Gainesville,"
Sherrod said. "I experienced the night-
mares."
South of the line, protesters held signs
proclaiming, "Execution is not the an-
swer."
Minutes before the 6 p.m. execution,
some took turns banging a cylindrical bell
with a hammer to honor wrongfully con-
victed people who have been put to death.
Elizabeth Crowder and Camille


Concannon, both public defenders from
Marion County, said there was never a jus-
tification for one person to kill another.
"We're just reacting to what Danny did
by doing what Danny did," Concannon
said.
Howard Moon, a computer specialist
from Ocala, joined in a prayer circle on the
south side before the execution. He said
that every time a Florida inmate is execut-
ed, he feels that blood is on his hands.
"It doesn't heal the hurt," Moon said. "I
blame the state. I don't blame the families
- they're trying to heal themselves."

Small mercies work to preserve memory of victims


By DREW HARWELL
Alligator Writer
dharwell@alligator.org

When students 16 years ago
needed a way to preserve the
memory of their murdered peers,
they used paint.
And thanks to many students
and citizens, one section of the 34th
Street Wall remains as a loving trib-
ute to five lives ended too soon by
serial killer Danny Rolling.
A section of the wall was first
painted about a week after the mur-
ders by former UF student Adam
Tritt and some of his friends, accord-
ing to a St. Petersburg Times article.
The group spent $11 on cans of
black, white and red paint and cre-
ated a memorial to the victims UF
students Sonja Larson, Christina
Powell, Tracy Paules and Manuel
Taboada and SFCC student Christa
Hoyt.
Sadie Damell, then a spokes-
woman for the Gainesville. Police
Department, began to help maintain
the memorial. Whenever she got a
call that the wall had been painted
over, she went to the wall with paint
and brush in hand.
Sometimes, she arrived at the
wall only to find it had already been
repaired. She named the unknown
people who looked after the memo-
rial the "keepers of the wall."
In 2000, at a ceremony for the
wall's 10-year anniversary, Damell
told the victims' families she would
not be preserving the mural any lon-

1990 student murders.


ger. A "permanent memorial" of five
palm trees, each bearing a plaque of
the victims' names, was planted in
the Ihedian across from the wall.


For two years, the wall went
unguarded. Finally, in 2002, UF's
Interfraternity Council, the govern-
ing body for the university's 27


fraternity chapters, told Damell
they were interested in watching
over it, said Benjamin Caswell, vice
president of operations for the IFC.


The group has cared for the mural
ever since.
Caswell, a UF electrical engineer-
ing senior, said the memorial needs
monthly touch-ups and a full-scale
repainting once a semester.
He said IFC members are finaliz-
ing the design of a memorial plaque,
which will explain the story sur-
rounding the 1990 murders. They
plan to mount the plaque on the
wall in about five weeks.
SThe money IFC spends on
paint and supplies for the memo-
rial comes from fraternity members'
dues. He said $125 was budgeted for
the supplies this semester and about
$300 for the plaque.
Caswell said he still remembers
one day last year when he was noti-
fied the wall had been defaced. The
next day, when IFC painters went
out to repair the wall, people were
already patching up the paint.
"The great thing about the wall
is it's maintained by students," he
said. "The memories of the students
of the past are being maintained by
the students of today."
Brian Engel, a criminology soph-
omore and IFC service director, said
members drive by the wall daily to

When Engel goes to the wall, he
brings sponge brushes and cans of

Tritt did 16 years ago.
"It helps families cope, knowing

we are a family."

Into the rabbit hole


Norman haunted house possesses spooky history


By CARLY BLUSTEIN
Avenue Writer

Halloween is the one day of
the year when things are never
what they seem. Little girls dress
like witches, while young boys
pretend to be superheroes.
This year,.a building familiar
to all UF students will change its
identity, blanketed in spooky fog
and decorative cobwebs.
Norman Hall, home to the
College of Education since 1934,
will host its first haunted house
event as a part of UF's centennial
celebration.
Jodi Mount, alumni affairs co-
ordinator for the college, worked
with Juawon Scott, a graphic art-


ist, to create a memorable first
year for the haunted house.
First, a committee was orga-
nized to prepare the script. Next,
the actors were hand-selected by
the committee to fit the parts.
The actors for the haunted house
comprise a mixture of local ac-
tors and members of the college's
staff, as well as friends of the
employees.
Most of the costumes and ac-
cessories were purchased at local
thrift shops or costume stores.
After all the material was col-
lected, Scott manipulated each
costume to perfectly fit each
character.
Legends surrounding the
building's past suggest the hall


Students can uncover the legend themselves at the Norman haunted
hall event this Sunday from 6:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. Four hundred tickets
were sold in advance at 53 each, but some may still be available.
Tickets will not be sold the night of the event. Questions concerning
ticket information or event details can be sent to ec1107@ufl.edu.


is haunted, which makes it a
suitable venue for an on-campus
haunted house.
Before it was housed the
College of Education, the build-
ing served as the P.K. Yonge
Laboratory School for children,
housing students from kinder-
garten through 12th grade. Some
believe that three young girls
died in an elevator accident there
many years ago. Their spirits are
said to haunt the building, espe-


cially its third floor.
However, since no documen-
tation or living eyewitnesses can
be found to prove the story's va-
lidity, it remains an unconfirmed
- though spooky legend.
Still, a number of people claim
to have felt ethereal presence
while roaming Norman's hall-
ways.
Jodi Mount remembers a fe-
male student who had confessed
to having an eerie experience


shortly after she had read an
article about the Norman Hall
legend.
"The girl said she entered
the bathroom in Norman Hall
and just felt a presence, like she
wasn't alone," Mount said. "She
felt the unseen presence was try-
ing to force her out of the room.
"She said she just freaked out
and started crying and ran out of
the bathroom. She said she never
had anything like that happen
to her before. It wasn't until a
couple of months later that she
finally told another girl about
the experience, who had a simi-
lar sensation as well. They both
freaked out when they learned
they were not alone."

I understand that Gainesville is

Tapes n' Tapes gains popularity through Internet

greatly from the Web.

Bringing the Rock


The Fest 5 kicks
By MEGAN HERON
Avenue Contributing Writer

Football fans know the last weekend of
October as the weekend of the big Florida
vs. Georgia game.
To music lovers, it's also Gainesville's
biggest rock festival.
For three days this weekend Friday
through Sunday orange and blue bodies
will be replaced with thousands of rockers
from all over the world.
The Fest is an event held annually for the
past five years by Tony Weinbender and No
Idea Records. Eight venues in downtown
Gainesville will be used for a plethora of
shows during the three-day festival.
The venues include Common Grounds,
The Side Bar, The Atlantic, 1982 Bar, Abbey
Road and more.
Weinbender, The Fest's founder and co-
ordinator, said more than a month ago that
the festival was already overbooked.
To avoid getting swamped with thou-
sands of e-mails this year, No Idea Records
and Weinbender used an application process
to sign bands to play. He said they created
this new system.
Though the system was a success, his of-
fice is still packed with boxes of letters from
hopeful bands. Weinbender tried to find a
way to include all the bands, but space is a
hot commodity.
Jason Rockhill, owner of Common
Grounds, explained that there are so many
groups performing, the band members


off Friday night
alone could probably fill the clubs.
The Fest 5 passes, good for admission to
all shows, are $40 if preordered and $50 on
opening day.
Walk-up tickets, which were created for
people who have to work but still want to
catch a show or two, are also sold at the
door for $8 to $17, depending on the show.
Weinbender discourages attendees from
walking up to shows because if a show is
packed and capacity is an issue, those with
prepurchased passes have first priority.
Weinbender said some plans may change
due to conflicts among bands. Small Brown
Bike, a headlining band for The Fest one
year, actually broke up while traveling to
Gainesville for the festival. He received a
phone call the morning of the event and
found himself with a big slot to fill. Luckily,
Weinbender knew some musicians who
agreed to perform.
"Till the weekend of (the festival), you
never really know what will happen," he
said.
Last year, the event attracted more than
3,500 people, including bands. Of the at-
tendees, 73 percent were from outside the
state including visitors from Sweden,
Germany, Japan and the United Kingdom.
This year, a band from the U.K. and a few
from Canada will be performing.
"Gainesville's a really open-armed com-
munity,",Weinbender said. "We're not very
elitist about it."
With local bands traveling all the time
and meeting other bands on the road, he


said, this is also a chance for bands and
friends to party.
"We kind of think of it as a big punk-rock
family reunion," he said.
But music lovers shouldn't be disheart-
ened. This festival isn't just for those who
enjoy punk rock.
Weinbender said he tries to expand the
entertainment by offering many different
types of music. This year's attendees can
expect to hear hip-hop, indie, electronic and
acoustic bands.
'Gainesville's a really open-
armed comniuunity. We're not very
elitist about it."
Tony Weinbender, Fest founder and
coordinator
He said you don't have to look or act a
certain way or listen to a certain type of mu-
sic to have fun at the shows. Weekend passes
encourage attendees to stay and see bands
they normally wouldn't experience, instead
of sticking solely to the headlining bands.
Against Me!, the biggest band to play in
the festival for the past four years, will not be
attending this year because they are record-
ing an album. Other popular groups who
played in previous years are The Bouncing
Souls and Hot Water Music.
The band list this year, 170 bands strong,
includes names like Velveteen Pink and
Latterman.
Weinbender is also surprised at the mas-
sive followings that the smaller bands attract.
He said he has seen the band Latterman play
house parties before, but never anything
larger. When the band played last year, their
audience amassed more than 300 people,


with an additional 100 trying to get inside
the venue.
At festivals like this, fans come from all
over the world because bands form a fan
base of approximately 20 people in each area
they visit, Weinbender said.
The past four years have run smoothly for
festival volunteers and workers. According
to Weinbender, there have been no fights
and merely one ejection of an unruly patron
during the shows. The only issue concerning
coordinators is the attendance of minors.
The law in Gainesville states that all ven-
ues serving alcohol must restrict entry to 18
and up. Those who are underage must be
escorted by parents or legal guardians and
need permission slips if one adult is going to
supervise a group.
Every year, a minor has e-mailed
Weinbender explaining that-his parents are
dead and that he lives with an older friend.
Even though the boy has been on his own
for the past three years, he is only 17.
"What do you say to a kid like that?" he
asked. "Sorry, but you can't come?"
Weinbender says that although the
shows are sponsored by Pabst Blue Ribbon
Beer, there are a lot of attendees who don't
drink and have just as much fun.
As for The Fest competing with UF's
football game, Weinbender doesn't seem
too concerned. In fact, he purposely planned
the event on the same weekend. Although it
may be a toss-up between the two events for
some people, Weinbender is confident atten-
dance won't be affected.

Ham Museum home to Monet's 'Champ d'Avoine'


By SHEM FLEENOR
Avenue Staff Writer

Each town, if you dig deep
enough, has its hidden treasures.
You don't have to dig far in
Gainesville, home to several gems,
many of which are housed in the
Ham Museum on Hull Road.
"Champ d'Avoine," by
Frenchman Claude Monet, is per-
haps the Ham's crown jewel.
SThe legendary impressionist
painted the field of oats as one of
a set of five. Each piece depicts the
same landscape, painted at varying
times of day. The masterpiece hang-


ing in a grandiose baroque frame in
the Ham's middle gallery was set
in the afternoon.
"Monet was known to paint
awhile, then move on to the next
piece for a few hours," said Dulce
Roman, curator of the middle gal-
lery. "He'd work on several at one
time."
"Champ d'Avoine" was com-
pleted in a wheat and poppy field
near Monet's estate in Giverny,
France, in 1890. The painting was
purchased soon thereafter by the
Brown family of Brown University
in Rhode Island. The piece was sold
at an auction and donated to the
Ham in 1999.


The museum is constantly up-
dating the insurance price to keep -
pace with market value. But the
piece is so valuable that the staff
won't discuss how much it costs.
They won't even comment on how
much they pay to insure the paint-
ing, which is protected by motion
sensors and a security camera.
The concerns are valid. "Crissy,"
a 50-pound bronze statue valued at
$12,500, was stolen in broad day-
light from an Orlando art gallery
Oct. 17.
Though the "Champ d'Avoine"
might be the Ham's crown jewel,
the museum houses 90,000 square
feet of some of the finest American,


European, Asian and African art on
the planet.
"We're probably North Florida's
destination for people looking for
the finest variety of visual arts,"
said Roman.
Christine Hale, the Ham's
director of marketing and public
relations, said UF students are most
impressed by the photography and
modem art exhibits.
"I don't know of many univer-
sity museums that have the quality
we have," Hale said.
The Ham, along with the Florida
Museum of Natural History, hosts
Museum Nights, giving Gainesville
residents an alternative to normal


after-dark activities.
"It gives students a cultural
alternative," Hale said. "Now they
can come to the museum, or they
can stop by before they go to the
bar."
Museum Nights holds clue
hunts, guest speakers and work-
shops at the Ham. The museum's
cafe is one of the few places on
campus where students can get-a
beer or glass of wine.
"I wish we'd stop being a sur-
prise to people, but we're still kind
of undercover," Hale said. "I've
been told it's one of best places in
town to take a date ... you know?
It's free."

Costumes thrive on image


Originally didn't want to write
about the sexy Halloween cos-
Stume phenomenon because it's
so overdone. Who hasn't no-
ticed that Halloween has become a day
for gals to look as sexy (and, OK, slutty)
as possible?
And what woman hasn't toyed with
the idea of abandoning all sense of
modesty by donning a devastatingly
racy geup, safe in the immunity that the
holiday offers?
But why? Why do young women dress
so provocatively on Halloween, and why
is this trend trickling down to younger
and younger girls? Maghan
Adie Nelson had a great
quotation in an Oct. 19 New
York Times piece on the subject
("Good Girls Go Bad, for a Day"
by Stephanie Rosenbloom).
"Decades after the second
wave of the women's move-
ment," Nelson said, "you would expect
more of a gender-neutral range of cos-
tumes."
She is, of course, referring to such
gems as the Gothic Nurse Nightingale,
the Hole-in-One Golfer, and Lady
Liberty, not to mention such standbys
as the French Maid, the Naughty Nurse
and the Playboy Bunny. And then there
are those childhood classics that strike
a particularly Lolita-esque chord the
Little Red Riding Hoods, Goldilocks and
Little Bo Peeps.
Dressing up on Halloween is an op-
portunity to become something we'd
ideally like to be perhaps, even, letting
the subconscious do the dressing.
When I was at an age when trick-or-


LI*
{
r/


D
a


treating was acceptable, I loved being, at
various times, a queen, Scarlett O'Hara,
Dorothy (those shoes!) and a film siren a
la Veronica Lake.
And as an almost-adult, one would
hope that I aspire to be a professional,
successful, and yes beautiful
woman.
Which I do.
However, what's most rewarding,
what gets the most attention and what is
the most fun is looking drop-dead sexy.
Resist as we might, women are in a
constant competition to be H-O-T.
And before you think I'm hemming
McDowell and hawing about the dreaded
gender double standard in cos-
tume choices, I realize that men
S have their struggles too.
Aside from chasing that
dollar, they compete daily to
be the wittiest, bravest, most
hilarious sucker out there -
which is why you'll notice more down-
right crude and obnoxious costumes than
sexy ones.
Unfortunately, I don't have a solution
to offer. But I'm not sure there is a need
for one.
Women are indeed the fairer sex (and
men the traditionally cruder), and in
such modern times, we are normally dis-
couraged from embracing any obvious
attempts at a sexpot image.
If only men would abandon the Blow-
Me Tissue and piece of poop with wings
("Holy Shit") for a Ride-Me Cowboy and
a Strip-Search Cop, that would be some-
thing to write home about.
To write to me or to submit your guest
column, write to advice@alligator.org.


Halloween drains budget


alloween is really starting to
scare me, and it's not because of
Small the spooks.
According to a survey by the
National Retail Federation, Halloween
celebrators will collectively spend $4.96
billion this year to show their spooky
spirits $1.67 billion more than last year.
And when you add up individual costs
- that is, the costumes, decorations and
other scary holiday items the average
person will spend $59.06, according to the
survey.
The way I see it, Halloween
is playing a trick on all of us. Jenn
What is it about costumes and
candy that make us blow al-
most $60 for one night of tricks
and treats?
Let's break it down and find
out and then avoid the costs
at all costs.

First: The Costume
Gone are the days when you could
punch a couple eyeholes in a white sheet,
drape it over your head and claim you're
a ghost. Sexy is the new scary. But some-
how, the costumes with the least amount
of fabric always cost the most. Sexy has
never been cheap, has it?
Well, creativity is a lot sexier and
cheaper. Hit the racks of local consign-
ment shops such as Goodwill Industries
or the Salvation Army Thrift Store. You'll
find clothes throughout the decades to fit
in with nearly any idea you may have,
and you're guaranteed to leave with
something nobody else has at least not
anymore.

Second: The Decorations
By far the best time to buy Halloween
decorations is after it's passed. Shop
around on Nov. 1, and save 50 percent or
more for next year's Halloween.
However, don't buy a discounted
costume the day after Halloween for next
year's holiday 365 days from now, you
may have changed your mind about what
you want to be.
Don't forget that making decorations
yourself can also save money. For exam-
ple, tombstones made from 50-cent poster
board and marker inscriptions
Pfaff cost a lot less than the ones
from Target (or funeral homes).
Scarecrows are also easy to
make using your clothes for an
outfit and sheets as stuffing.
Even more, don't limit your
S decoration shopping to spe-
cific Halloween or party stores.
Browse eBay.com and other
sites for discounts and cheap spooks.

Third: The Candy
If you live in an area where you dodge
kids playing in the street and you have
neighbors who ride a big yellow school
bus, you'll probably have superheroes
and Disney characters knocking on your
door Tuesday night.
When buying Halloween candy, al-
ways buy in bulk large variety bags
are always cheaper. It's also not a bad idea
to ask your next-door neighbor if he or
she wants to split candy costs with you.
Considering that most students live in stu-
dent areas, the number of trick-or-treaters
might be very small, meaning you won't
need a lot of candy.

UF MEN'S BASKETBALL

No sophomore slump for Hodge


Alligator File Photo
UF guard Walter Hodge goes up for a layup against Savannah State last
season. Hodge has improved his game during the offseason.


By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
jmarina@alligator.org

Sophomore guard Walter Hodge proves the old
adage, "Good things come to those who wait," is
true. After toiling at shooting guard last season,
Hodge appears ready to assume the more com-
fortable task of backing up point guard Taurean
Green.
"You just gotta wait your turn," said Green, who
similarly played out of position when he saw time
at shooting guard as a freshman. "This year, he's
going to be thrown into a new role, playing the
point a lot more, and he's just done a good job of
running it and picking up on everything."
Last season, Hodge played in all 39 games
for nearly 20 minutes per game. He averaged 3.8
points and 1.2 assists per contest, but his team-
mates expect a lot more out of him this time.
"We're definitely going to be a lot better team
with him playing the way he's playing right now,"
Green said. "He's just another option for us on of-
fense, and he's still going to play tenacious defense.
He just makes us a lot deeper."
Coach Billy Donovan agrees and has confidence
in the sophomore's capabilities to become a compa-
rable backup to Green.
"I feel like Walter may be a little more formi-
dable than he was a year ago," Donovan said. "I
think Walter showed some signs of life (at the point
guard position) and can contribute there. ... I feel
like with Taurean being the purest of the point
guards, Walter has improved, and he can slide over
there and help out."
The sophomore guard said that last season he
had to overcome the mental hurdle of making the
transition from high school to college.
"There was a lot of pressure, but I feel like I'm
getting better (now)," Hodge said.


Explained Donovan: "Guys have really made
significant jumps and improvements from their
freshman year to their sophomore year, and I
don't think there's any better example of that than
Joakim (Noah). I'm not saying Walter is going to
have a Joakim-type of season, but-he's much more
comfortable, he's much more relaxed; he's not hav-
ing to think as much. He can now react and play."
While Green and Hodge may be a dynamic duo.
on the court together this season, this was not the
case during the summer.
"This year, (Hodge is) going to be thrown
into a new role, playing the point a lot
more, and he's just done a good job of
running it and picking up on everything."

Pickup games are a tradition for the hoops team,
and this year, Hodge joined the four freshmen to
take on the starting five.
Two years ago, Al Horford, Corey Brewer, Noah
and Green took on the upperclassmen including
David Lee, Anthony Roberson and Matt Walsh.
Afterward, the '04s boasted that they dominated
on the court and won the series 4-3.
This year, however, there seems to be a little
-confusion about who actually won.
Hodge said his team defeated the veterans six
consecutive times, but Green recalled things dif-
ferently.
"We played the best of seven, and they beat us,
like, once," he said. "We won the overall series."
When asked about the discrepancy, Hodge re-
sponded: "They hating right now.
"We beat them two days in a row. I think it was
a good lesson for them."


Veteran Gators defense giddy at idea of facing freshman quarterback


FOOT from page 28

"I'm much more comfortable now," said
Stafford, who was rated the No. 2 quarterback
in his class by Scout.com and has a knack for
rifling passes.
Still, Stafford has thrown seven intercep-
tions to just three touchdowns.
Georgia has subsequently modified its of-
fense to utilize some of the shotgun, spread
looks that made him so successful in high


NICK-EL, from page 28

State this year. Sylvester
Croom's crew also lost to
Tulane.
Stafford hadn't done much
better in the starting role be-
fore playing Mississippi State
either.
Redshirt freshman Joe
Cox bailed him out against
Colorado.
Stafford couldn't put up any
points against the Buffaloes, yet
Division I-AA Montana State
somehow found a way to score
19 on them.
Cox put together two scoring
drives in relief, giving Georgia
a 14-13 win.
Stafford did play well in his

But no matter the offense, Stafford is still
just a freshman whom UF's veteran defense
won't mind facing.
When asked about defending against a
freshman quarterback, UF linebacker Brandon
Siler's eyes lit up, after which he smiled and
licked his lips.
"He's not just a freshman," Siler said. "He's
a freshman starting for Georgia, so we kind
of feel like we have to come out and pressure
him."

UF coach Urban Meyer shares his quarter-
back's opinion. As a receivers coach at Notre
Dame, Meyer was part of a staff that helped
true freshman quarterback Matt LoVecchio
become a premier starter.
"I imagine you would not want to put
(Stafford) in a bad position," Meyer said. "You
wouldn't ask him to go win the game for you.
You'd ask him to manage the game."

Gators overcome lackadaisical effort at Auburn


IUF STILL WON ITS 11TH
CONSECUTIVE SEC MATCH.

By JOSH ARMSTRONG
Alligator Writer
jarmstrong@alligator.org

With two games easily taken care
of, the-No. 7 Gators looked well on
their way to a ninth consecutive
sweep.
But the UF volleyball team (19-2,
12-1 Southeastern Conference) sud-
denly found itself needing a come-
back in the fourth game to defeat


Auburn 30-17, 30-22,29-31,30-27.
"Balls dropping. Unforced er-
rors. I just thought that as well as
some of our players played, we just
gave away points," UF coach Mary
Wise said in a radio interview. "And
then, other than the very last call at
matchpoint, not many calls went
our way."
As the Auburn crowd mimicked
Florida State's chop and war chant,
the miscommunication that plagued
the Gators in Tallahassee earlier this
year resurfaced, and players looked
at each other while playable balls fell
to the court.


"I don't know. I can't blame it on
one thing," freshman libero Elyse
Cusack said. "It was just ... I don't
know what was
going on."
Ball han-
dling errors also
maligned the
Gators, but Wise
thinks many
were unwar-
Cusack ranted. She was
given a yellow
card in game four for contending a
double-hit call.
"I am absolutely dumbfounded


by the ball handling errors," she
said. "I'm going to have to go back
and watch those. I didn't see them."
When the third game began, the
Gators looked flat while Auburn
seemed to find a rhythm in its block-
ing to create eight UF hitting errors
and hold the Gators to .260 hitting.
"Down 0-2, they had nothing
to lose, and so they just played
conscious-free," Wise said. "And I
felt that we were playing a little bit
tighter."
Despite the problems, the Gators
won the match behind 11 blocks and
10-plus kills from middle blockers


Kisya Killingsworth (21), Kelsey
Bowers (13) and Kristina Johnson
(11) along with opposite hitter
Amber McCray (16).
Killingsworth was UF's best of-
fensive option, with .333 hitting on
42 attacks, though Wise pointed out
that she finished the match with one
block and a costly late error.
Junior outside hitter Marcie
Hampton said game four was a
must-win situation.
"We really knew we did not
want to go five (games) against this
team," she said. "It would have been
bad news."

Gal, Gators to head into familiar Derby territory


By ALDEN GONZALEZ
Alligator Writer

Things have been drastically different in
a stretch of two weeks for Coach Jill Briles-
Hinton.
Entering the third tournament of the sea-
son, Briles-Hinton took UF to a course she'd
never seen without top player Sandra Gal.
But.although her team didn't improve on
their previous middle-of-the-pack finishes, a
tie for seventh at the Mercedes-Benz Classic
proved significant.
"It gave our girls a lot of confidence,"
Briles-Hinton said. "The fact that Gal wasn't
there and they were all able to put up descent
scores definitely made them believers. Well
see how it will translate into this weekend."


Better news is on the horizon for Briles-
Hinton as she heads into the three-day
Auburn Derby in Alabama.
The ninth-year coach will send her team to
a course she's been going to since 1994, and
most importantly, shell have her ace back.
But that doesn't mean her squad will go
into the tournament worry-free.
There are now concerns about how Gal,
who's less than one week removed from a 72-
hole tournament in South Africa, will fare.
"She's definitely going to be tired," Briles-
Hinton said. "But if you want to be a good
golfer, that's something you have to deal with
because there's going to be many times where
you'll be playing in a tournaments back-to-
back."
Another concern for Briles-Hinton is the


"The fact that Gal wasn't there
and they were all able to put up
descent scores definitely made
them believers."
Jill Briles-Hinton.
UF women's golf coach

inconsistent play of the rest of the team. Other
than Gal, the Gators have had only one top-10
individual finish this season.
"We need that second option," she said.
"We need somebody to contribute good scores
for us when Gal's not having her way, and it
has to happen soon."
Briles-Hinton will take juniors Gal, Tiffany


Chudy and Whitney Myers along with
sophomores Mallory Blackwelder and Ornella
Jouven to Auburn. It will be the same lineup
she used at the second event and the 2006
NCAA Championships.
Gal may have been the only one to finish
in the top-25 after tying for fourth last season,
but Briles-Hinton has every reason to believe
things will be different this time around.
"This golf course is a course where you
have to have experience to do good in," Briles-
Hinton said. "The course is long, the wind
gets in real easy and the greens are tough. But
this time I think we'll have an upper hand."
The Gators will play the 54-hole event
Friday, Saturday and Sunday beginning at 7:
45 a.m. The derby will feature 16 teams, 8 of
which are in the Southeastern Conference.

UF hopes to avoid Cockblock


By RACHEL ROBINS
Alligator Writer
rrobins@alligator.org

The No. 15 UF soccer team (11-4-3,7-1-2 Southeastern
Conference) will end its regular season Friday at South
Carolina at 7 p.m. in Columbia, S.C.
Although UF has already clinched at least a share of
the SEC regular-season championship, the Gators must
win or at least tie to win the conference outright.
"We are not going to let up," UF coach Becky
Burleigh said. "We are not going to change the lineup.
We are not going to do anything differently. We want to
win that game and build momentum to go into the SEC
Tournament."

Tim Casey/ Alligator Staff
Forward KeLeigh Hudson and UF hope to clinch the
SEC outright by defeating or tying South Carolina.


If Vanderbilt wins at Kentucky on Friday and the
Gators lose, each team will have 23 points and a share
of the title.
Should that happen, the Gators would still get the No.
1 seed in the SEC Tournament because they defeated the
Commodores 1-0 on Oct. 6.
Regardless, the Gators have at least a share of their
seventh regular-season title and the first since 2001.
"We accomplished a big goal in winning the SEC,"
Burleigh said. "With this game left, we really don't want
to share (the title) with Vanderbilt.
"So it would be great for us to win it outright by tak-
ing care of business on Friday."
South Carolina has proven formidable in Columbia
this season. The Gamecocks have posted an 8-0-2 record
at home.
Burleigh was quick to point out that the Gators have
been successful on the road. UF is 4-1-2 away from
Gainesville.
"With this game left, we really don't want
to share (the title) with Vanderbilt. So it
would be great for us to win outright."
Becky Burleigh
UF soccer coach

"Obviously, they feel pretty comfortable there, and
it's up to us to get after it," Burleigh said. "We've been
pretty good away so far. We're undefeated on the road
(in SEC play). They're undefeated at home some-
thing's got to give."
UF has made a habit of playing overtime on Fridays.
In the nine Friday games the Gators have played in, four
of them have gone into extra minutes.
It wouldn't be a surprise if Friday's game shapes up
the same way.
When UF last traveled to South Carolina in 2004,
forward KeLeigh Hudson scored the winning goal in
double overtime to propel the Gators to a 2-1 win.
Two years prior, UF lost to South Carolina 1-0 in
overtime.
Despite the drama, the Gators boast a 13-1 all-time
record against the Gamecocks.
"We all have to go in still playing our hardest," mid-
fielder Ameera Abdullah said. "I think every game is
practice for the next game.
"We have to go in with the same mentality we've had
the whole season, just keeping that drive and passion in
each and every game. Because if we lose it, I think we
kind of falter as a team."


Hot Gators to


face hot 'Dawgs
By MIKE MCCALL
Alligator Writer

The O'Connell Center has been "home sweet dome" to
the UF swimming and diving team.
During the tenure of Coach Gregg Troy, the men's team
is 7-0 in home openers, while the women's team is 7-1. This
afternoon they will look to maintain that excellence when
they host Georgia in a dual meet.
One reason for UF's home success has been pride.
"That's one of the things Coach Troy instills in us," junior
Kevin Nead said. "We get to those meets and we're tired,
but it's not an option to roll over like some teams do."
UF holds an impressive series record against Georgia,
with the men leading 55-14-2, and the
.:- women up 12-8.
"Georgia's been the national cham-
':' pion two or three times in the last five
years, and they're always one of the two
best teams in the country," Troy said.
"Our people respond really well to that
type of challenge."
Troy The Bulldogs who boast the No.
9 men's team and No. 5 women's team
- will be the best team the Gators have faced so far.
UF's No. 3 men's team (2-0,1-0 Southeastern Conference)
and No. 2 women's team (1-0, 0-0 SEC) led off the year with
a win at Michigan on Oct. 14, handing the Wolverines their
first season-opening loss in a dual meet in 39 years.
The men then traveled to Baton Rouge, where they de-
feated conference foe LSU, a win that boosted the team's
confidence.
"It helped the guys a lot," Troy said. "Any time you
swim in the conference, you get everyone's best shot."
The Gators have utilized their wealth of young talent
early nine of UF's 14 individual wins have come from
freshmen and sophomores. But UF isn't getting cocky yet.
"We know there are teams out there like Auburn,
Stanford, Texas and Cal, and we haven't swam against
those teams yet, so that keeps us from getting overconfi-
dent," Nead said.
The UF women have relied more on the seniors.
"A lot of us have been around forever and we're excited
about this year," senior Candace Weiman said.

When Georgia

tabbed freshman

as his starting quar-

UF's defense must
have felt all tingly
inside.
Stafford will be
left looking worse


than Bulldogs mascot Uga VI after
Saturday's game at Alltel Stadium.
I've been wrong in my predictions
before. Remember Mon Williams?
But history backs my argument this
time.
- Consider what the player whom
Rivals.com ranked higher than Tim
Tebow and Mitch Mustain has done so
far.
With eight games of experience
- including three starts Stafford
has thrown seven interceptions to three
touchdowns.
What's worse is that Stafford, a
pocket passer, can't run his way out of
trouble as well as former Georgia quar-
terback D.J. Shockley or through trouble
like Tebow has.
So, despite playing behind an offen-
sive line chock full of upperclassmen,
Stafford has shown his freshman form.
Last week, he earned Southeastern
Conference Freshman of the Week hon-
ors despite throwing three picks and be-
ing sacked three times.

Georgia settles for freshman QB

By ANTONIO GONZALEZ

Georgia coach Mark Richt wasn't supposed
to fret about the quarterback position this sea-

Not with an experienced senior in Joe
Tereshinski primed to fill the void left by DJ.
Shockley.-
But one injury to Tereshinski a right high-
ankle sprain against South Carolina-changed
all that.
"It became a revolving door," Richt said.
Only recently has Richt given true freshman
Matthew Stafford a full vote of confidence as
the starter. Stafford will start his fourth game
of the season when Georgia dashes with UF on
Saturday. Richt hopes he doesn't have to make
any more changes the rest of the way.
"We hope that's the case, but
you just don't know," Richt said.
"(But) our intention is to go with
Stafford and grow with him. I
Football think Matthew's at the point now
that he'll be able to handle the
responsibility."
The coaching staff hardly had this confidence
in Stafford at the beginning of the season.
After Tereshinski suffered his injury, both
Stafford and redshirt freshman Brandon Cox -
took turns being inconsistent. ,
And when Tereshinski returned against aj
Tennessee four weeks after going down, he
threw two costly interceptions in a 51-33 loss. ..

Mattison perfectly content as assistant


By BRYAN JONES

bjones@alligator.org

Don't expect UF co-defensive coor-
dinator Greg Mattison to jettison the
Gators for a head coaching job any time
soon.
Mattison feels much more comfort-
able as an assistant, and even if the 56-
year-old coach had a change of heart, he
likely wouldn't receive much support
from his wife, Ann.
"My wife has always said to me, 'You
would be a terrible head coach because

all you like to do is coach kids, and you


would miss that one-on-one relation-
ship,'" Mattison said. "And I used to
think, 'Yeah, well, she just doesn't want
to move again,' or
something like that.
"But I think she's
right."
Mattison said he
has turned down head
coaching offers before,
-and at this point in
Mattison
his career he is more
concerned with getting the job done than
receiving accolades.
"To me, you can be head coach of the

ing," Mattison.
Mattison is known for being a strong
