1 man dies

A man fell down a stairwell to his death at
a Jacksonville bar Saturday during the Florida-
Georgia football game, according to Jacksonville

Because of these deaths, UF
partnered with the University
of Georgia and the city of Jacksonville this year to
create "safety zones" in the area.
The Sideline Student Safety Zones that were set
up this year were open until 3 a.m. Saturday and
Sunday to give students telephone access, medical
help, trolley rides, water and a place to rest.
Theresa O'Donnell, Jacksonville's director of
special events, said the zones were successful.
A critical element of that success, she said, was
informing students that they wouldn't face legal

JACKSONVILLE A few hours
before the Sabbath, Urban Meyer
started counting his blessings.
The list was short.
"Thank God for great defense,"
the UF coach said after the Gators
squeaked by Georgia 21-14.
On Saturday afternoon, the Gators'
defense bailed out its offense, which
managed second-half totals of 113
yards, two fumbles, one interception
and zero points.
"In six years I don't think I've
ever felt this way about an offense,"
Meyer said. "We've got a lot of work

and stop Georgia's comeback attempt.
On Saturday at Alltel Stadium, no
UF rusher totaled more than 37 yards
or ran more than eight times.
"(Wynn) did not play for three-
and-a-half quarters, but he got in my
face and told me to get him the ball,"
Meyer said. "In the past, I probably
would not have listened to him, but

Desire to experience college spurred Lemerand's gifts
By CHAD SMITH
His name adorns a main road
through the heart of UF's campus,
but Gale Lemerand never attended
the university. He didn't set foot on
campus until he was about 60.
But as a major UF donor, he
thinks he's making an impact
on campus and in UF athletics.
Lemerand even feels his money
played a role in UF's first men's

gRport Donovan wanted a
great training facility at
UF in order "to become

Lemerand donated $500,000
toward that facility, and Donovan
eventually "came through for us,"
he said, adding that the basketball
facility "has attracted a lot of recruits
that wouldn't have come here."
University officials say they ap-
preciate Lemerand's gifts, which
he's been giving for about a decade.

Dorm residents compete to reduce energy consumption
* THE WINNING DORM WILL GET
STARBUCKS AND BEN & JERRY'S.
By JESSICA PONN
Alligator Contributing Writer
Starting in November, dorm residents will
battle to reduce their energy use as part of
the Battle of the Halls Energy Competition,
sponsored by the UF housing department and
Gators for a Sustainable Campus.
"It's a student-conceived and -executed
program, and I think that's the key to this,"
said Sharon Blansett, housing spokeswoman.
At the end of the month, each dorm will
have its energy consumption measured in
comparison to its consumption from the same
time last year, and the dormitory with the
greatest reduction will be named the winner.
Energy consumption will be divided by the
number of residents so that smaller dorms can
compete with larger ones.
"The goal of this competi-
Student tion is to get students excited
Life about energy conservation and
to create good habits," said
Kelly Moosbrugger, a member of Gators for a
Unlike off-campus residents, dorm resi-
dents have no financial incentive to reduce en-
ergy use because they don't pay utility bills.
Blansett said she hopes the project will help
students plan for a time when they will have
to deal with the rude awakening of a monthly
energy bill. The initiative is meant to encour-
age students to lead more environmentally
friendly lifestyles before they have to pay rent
that does not include utilities.
The idea is that people will start thinking
about conservation on a daily basis and adopt
sustainable lifestyles while they're young,
Students can take a number of simple ac-
tions to reduce their energy consumption.
"Now that the weather is nice, turn off
your air and open your windows," said
Jessica Ducey, a student representative on
the Housing Recycling Committee and the
involvement coordinator for Gators for a
Other ways to lead a more sustainable
lifestyle include shutting off computers when
they will not be used for two or more hours,
opening curtains during daylight hours in-
stead of switching on lights, turning refrigera-
tors to their lowest settings and using compact
florescent light bulbs.
The competition will be measured by
strict calculations of kilowatt-hours used, but
Moosbrugger believes it is the intangible re-
sults that will be most valuable.
The contest, of course, does add extra in-
"Competition works well for everything,"
Ducey said. "There is a lot of pride in where
you come from."
The dorm. that wins the November com-
petition will earn complimentary Starbucks
coffee for every resident on one day in early

Students get 'taste of Africa'
By ALEX TIEGEN
In Ghanaian tradition, before
a storyteller begins her tale,
the audience has to encourage
her with chants of "chalesa." A
crowd of 40 UF students did the
same Friday night at the event
"Get a Taste of Africa" in the
Reitz Union Grand Ballroom.
Naana Home, an assistant
professor of African literature
at SFCC, responded with a
Ghanaian folktale about the first
man to enter a world of women.
He was welcomed as a
strange "three-legged creature"
into the Queen Mother's home.
He tricked her and her daugh-
ters into having sex with him
and took over the marketplace
while they were suffering morn-
ing sickness. His babies then
populated the world with men.
"Storytelling was always
a wonderful way of teach-
ing what is right and what is
wrong," Home said.
The celebration was meant
to enrich students' views of
Africa beyond the stereotypes
portrayed on television, said
Tolulope Akinbo, the African
Student Union's social functions
director. In depicting Africans,
the media typically show chil-
dren with bulging bellies and
flies on their faces, said Akinbo,
who is from Nigeria.
"Storytelling was always
a wonderful way of
teaching what is right
and what is wrong."
"I've had people ask me 'Did
you live with, like, lions in your
backyard?'" she said.
For many African students,
the continent is a paradise,
Akinbo said. There is a strong
sense of community and broth-
er- and sisterhood in Nigeria
- a sense that is sometimes
absent in America, she said.
"We see it as home," Akinbo
To open the event, performers
gave a preview of the upcoming
UF show titled "Agbedidi
Bassikolo: Africa, Dance and
the Diaspora." Three Guinean
drummers beat out thunder-
ing rhythms on tall drums that
reached their kneecaps.
The rhythm drew student
dancers to the center of the
room to perform a Guinean
routine. They pranced and con-
torted into various positions,
shaking their bodies and flailing
their arms as they bent forward
and backward. The dance is per-
formed in naming and marriage
ceremonies, said Mohamed
DaCosta, a UF professor who
is organizing the Bassikolo per-
The celebration was orga-
nized by the African Student
Union and cost more than $300.

Safety Zone a welcome
bit of pragmatism
In the past five years, at least five UF students have
died as a result of binge drinking including two
who died during the annual Florida-Georgia game in
Jacksonville. Our reputation as a party school precedes
It's no wonder, then, that UF President Bernie Machen
has launched a campaign to curb student drinking. To ig-
nore those deaths would have been callous and irrespon-
sible. But nothing galls students more than a university
administration acting in loco parents wagging their
fingers and peering condescendingly over their bifocals.
UF took that route with its online alcohol course, public
relations campaigns and recent game-day crackdowns.
Don't drink, the administration said. It's bad for you. But
in most students' eyes, father doesn't necessarily know
best just take a look at "Bernie Machen Needs To Go
Home and Have a Beer," a Facebook.com group with 236
members, to see what we mean.
So what's a concerned university president to do? How
do you protect students who bristle at being told what to
This weekend, UF, the University of Georgia and the
city of Jacksonville conducted an experiment. They didn't
nag students about responsibility. They didn't lecture, ha-
rangue or criticize. They simply made services available to
drunken students and took away the threat of punishment
for underage drinkers.
At the Florida-Georgia game, intoxicated football fans
could head to UF's "Sideline Student Safety Zones" to call
a cab, find their friends, charge their cell phones or drink
some coffee. Sideline staff helped sick students sober up
and get back to their hotels and kept out the type of
thugs who killed UF student Thomas Brown at last year's
The sideline strategy lets students have their drinking
problem. But, like a good friend, it took care of them when
the going got tough. Finally, a commonsense solution.
Unfortunately, there may have been an alcohol-related
death in Jacksonville this weekend. A man fell from a bal-
cony at a downtown bar but he wasn't a UF student and
it didn't happen at the game. Safety zones exist to prevent
incidents just like that.
College students drink too much. That's a given. It's a
problem, too people are dying but it's much too big
for any one university to tackle. The best UF can do is ac-
cept that some of us go overboard and try to catch us when
we fall. The point is to keep students out of the hospital,
not to give a sermon.
It's a lot like the abstinence debate in our schools.
Granted, the Alligator is against abstinence in all its forms
but even if you do support chastity and virginity and all
the rest, abstinence-only education is just bad policy. Kids
will always have sex. Kids will always drink. You can beat
your head against a brick wall trying to stop them, or you
can make sure they don't hurt themselves.
But UF is still doing a little of both. The sideline strat-
egy is a step in the right direction, but online alcohol quiz-
zes show that Machen's head is still in the clouds. It's time
for the administration to vacate its moral high ground
and meet students at their own level in the real world,
where university policy can actually do some good.

Capital punishment all aboutjustice
ive days ago, our state government fed a man,
laid him in a gurney, restrained him and injected
a lethal toxin into his bloodstream, ending his life.
Danny Rolling is buried now literally history but
the debate over capital punishment is alive and well.
On picket signs and newspaper columns, many won-
dered, "What is this supposed to accomplish?" My an-
swer to that question would be justice but I fear that,
to many, justice is nothing more than a label for what is
useful, efficient or economically viable.
Most of the arguments against capital punishment
fit one of those categories, and they are foundationally
barbaric. Are we to base whether or not we kill some-
one on finances? In that case, we could emulate China,
where the families of the executed must pay to claim
Forgive me, Chinese prisons don't do that anymore
- they've found they can turn a profit by selling the
dead prisoners' organs.
Supporting capital punishment because of its pre-
ventative effects is a little less reprehensible, but by no
means a sufficient reason. If it were, why not execute
drunk drivers after their first offense? That would pre-
vent thoughtlessness about finding a designated driver
- and probably save lives.
Finally, if all licensed psychologists in the world
agreed that killing a murderer has a healing effect on the
victim's grieving loved ones, that still would not merit
the practice. If you watch five interviews with parents,
siblings and friends of murder victims, you will see that
people cope and recover in different ways. We cannot
adapt the punishment to help the grieving recuperate.
So if we brush away the utilitarian arguments in fa-
The Liles Files
vor of capital punishment, what's
left underneath? Something sim-
ple and more essential: a value.
I am afraid I have nothing more
compelling to offer.
We tend to see the justice
system in purely practical terms
- putting criminals in 'jail so
they can't commit crimes any-
more but justice is valuable
in its own right, as a substantive
prescription for how we should punish the guilty. And
part and parcel of that is the belief that an individual
person is so valuable that his or her murder negates the
worth of the murderer.
You might be thinking, "Well, doesn't that mean the
executioner's life is negated too?" No. It is important
here to distinguish between killing and murdering.
Killing is the act of ending someone's life. Murder, a
subcategory, is to do so without justification. To deny
the difference is to say there's no meaningful distinction
between an ambitious drug dealer and a girl defending
herself from rape if they both kill someone.
I recall explaining to my father as a young boy that
he did not have to spank me for coming home after dark
the third time in as many evenings, because I finally had
a grasp of how short dusk really was. He assured me
that while he completely believed me, punishment was
about more than correction it was about justice. And
it still is. On Wednesday, Danny Rolling became the
ninth victim of his actions. Justice demanded it.

Letters to the ti.:
Stearns' positions on research hurt UF
Since Imoved to Florida's 6th Congressional
District a few years ago, I've followed Rep.
Cliff Stears and his voting record very closely.
He voted against the McCain-Feingold bill for
campaign finance reform, against the stem cell
research bill, for the Bush tax cuts and for the
war in Iraq.
Stears' positions have serious ramifica-
tions for local voters. One of my best friends,
a doctoral student at UF, told me her lab must
order stem cells from overseas for research,
which is costly. This heavy financial burden on
science and research hurts everyone, consider-
ing we all depend on science and research.
So why re-elect Stears when Dave Bruderly
could do so much good for the district and for
the country as a whole?
We should all be excited about Bruderly's
ideas for energy independence and decreas-
ing America's reliance on foreign oil. The
Republican majority in Congress has not made
this an issue of priority and that's shameful.
Whether Stears likes it or not, voters have a
clear choice in next week's election.
Amendment would fight tobacco use
In high school, many of us stood up to
the tobacco industry as members of Students
Working Against Tobacco. However, SWAT's
glory days as one of the nation's leading to-
bacco-prevention programs ended when the
Florida Legislature slashed its funding and
since then, the program has fallen to pieces.
Amendment 4 will revive tobacco-preven-
tion efforts in Florida by allocating 15 percent
of Florida's tobacco settlement for this pur-
pose. This represents an annual investment of
$54 million in the future health and longevity
of Florida's citizens. I encourage all voters to
support Amendment 4 at the polls Nov. 7.
If you're interested in getting involved
with fighting the tobacco industry, join us for
the first general meeting of Ignite a national
movement working to get Big Tobacco out of
politics at 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday in Reitz
Union Room 276.
Diamonds fund rebels, not governments
In Alex Tiegen's Wednesday article about
African "blood diamonds," the Alligator let
some misleading statements by Omavi Bailey
and Penny Hess pass without any comment.
At this time, Africa is free of colonial pow-
ers. Every country on the continent is a mem-
ber of the United Nations so why blame
"white parasitism" for the horrors,of the dia-
mond trade? It just doesn't make sense.
Blood diamonds aren't mined by com-
panies like De Beers, which registers all its
diamonds. Rather, they are taken by poachers
and are never registered. They're not used to
fund legitimate governments, but rather rebel
groups not recognized by the United Nations.

.Anemic offense, penalties
keep Bulldogs in game
A University of Georgia administrator (center) assists UF students Megan Miller (left) and Brianne Deh-
linger (right) at a Sideline Student Safety Zone in the Jacksonville Landing on Saturday.
Students' response to safety zones 'positive'
JAX, from page 1
action for showing up to the areas
In the past, intoxicated students
who. needed help might have been
reluctant to approach police of-
ficers out of fear of being arrested,
"I think its been a trust issue,"
Danielle Turner, a UF wildlife
ecology and conservation senior,
said she and her boyfriend went to
Jacksonville without tickets just to
take in the game's atmosphere.
They. spent time at the
Jacksonville Landing, where there
were "wall-to-wall people inside,"
Though she didn't see any hostil-
ity among revelers, she said recent
deaths have made her more aware
of her surroundings.
"I definitely did not want to be
alone any of the time," she said.
More than 100 officers patrolled
the area near the stadium Saturday
on foot, bikes and horseback, ac-
cording to the Jacksonville Sheriff's
Office. The increased police pres-
ence Turner noticed reassured her,
"It just seemed like they were
trying to make sure everyone was
safe," she said.
The response from students
assisted at the safe zones was over-
whelmingly positive, O'Donnell
"We've all been there," she said.
FOOT, from page 1
..,This next week, it will be a
main focus of ours to get him the
The defense and special
teams forced five turnovers to
keep the No. 7 Gators (7-1, 5-1
Southeastern Conference) in the
The most important of them
provided the game-winning
touchdown on the first play from
scrimmage of the second half.
UF defensive end Derrick
Harvey stripped Georgia run-
ning back Kregg Lumpkin. Ray
McDonald then recovered and
barreled in from 9 yards out.
With Andre Caldwell (eight
catches for 88 yards) scoring on a
12-yard run and a 40-yard pass in
the first half, McDonald's first ca-
reer touchdown put UF up 21-0.
From there, the Gators' offense
nearly spoiled a dominating first
half for the defense.
UF had seven possessions in
the second half.
Two ended in missed field
goals by senior Chris Hetland,
a former All-SEC second-team
kicker who has made 1-of-7 kicks
on the season.
Asked after the game whether
he should start looking for a new
kicker, Meyer responded softly
"I think so," Meyer said. "I
don't want to, but it's time."
Two more of the seven posses-
sions ended in punts, and quar-
terbacks Tim Tebow (fumble) and
Chris Leak (interception) took
their turns in giving up the ball
on two others.
Business savvy Lemerand earned millions without a college degree
LEMERAND, from page 1
"I think he truly cares about the kids
having a chance and the coaches having a
chance," Pharr added.
Now a multimillionaire, Lemerand grew
up poor in Michigan and never made it to col-
lege, but he said an education along with
experience and a good work ethic is critical
in today's business world.
Even without a degree, he was able to grow
his small insulation business, Gale Industries,
into one of the nation's biggest.
"I always got up early and went to bed
late and worked very hard," he said. "I don't
know who said it, but the harder you work,
the luckier you get."
Lemerand became a Florida fan in the
early '90s after Bill Lloyd, a Daytona Beach car
dealer and longtime Gator Booster, brought
him to Gainesville for lunch with then football
coach Steve Spurrier. Lemerand said he was
impressed with the Gators' coaching staff and
the Gator Boosters organization.
He attended his first UF football game in
1994 when the Gators took on Florida State
University in Tallahassee. After falling behind,
the Seminoles rallied to tie the game 31-31.
Lemerand called the game a "heartbreak-
er" andbecame a Florida fan soon after.
"I just felt very comfortable around the uni-
versity," he said, "and since I had missed the
university experience myself, I had a desire to
experience it some and be around the young
people at the games."
Thanks to several large donations he's
made to UF, Lemerand's name is posted all
over campus. In early 2005 a main campus
roadway, North-South Drive, was renamed
Gale Lemerand Drive. The football offices
at the stadiums are the Lemerand Football
Having a street named after him was "quite
an honor," he said.
"It doesn't happen very often when you're
still alive," he joked. "It's really nice."
But Lemerand's biggest contribution was
'for a building now the L. Gale Lemerand
Athletic Center that houses UF's volleyball,
track and field, soccer and softball teams.
"It's kind of a legacy to my grandchildren,"
He said he didn't feel comfortable saying
exactly how much he's given to the university,
but he did mention he's a Bull Gator, which
is the highest rank for donors in the Gator
Booster program. To keep his title as a lBull
Gator, he must donate at least $12,000 to UF
Lemerand sports a mammoth ring com-
memorating the UF football team's 1996 na-
tional championship. He received the ring to
honor his generosity, and he got another one
this year after the basketball team won the
But UF isn't the only college profiting from
He has also given millions of dollars to
three colleges in Daytona Beach Bethune-
Cookman College, Embry-RiddleAeronautical
University and Daytona Beach Community
College. Lemerand, a resident of the area, has
recently served on the boards of trustees at all
"I was able to surround myself with great,
formally educated people, and I wanted to
pay back for that," he said.
John Restuccia, a UF alumnus and one of
Lemerand's business partners, said Lemerand
gives to UF because he believes in education
and because he likes being associated with the
.. "He is proud of the fact
S, a that UF treats him as a very
S. r. special alumnus who never
attended a class there,"
Restuccia said. He added
S that Lemerand never uses
his gifts to the university as
Lemerand a "trump card."
Since Lemerand started
supporting UF, he has gotten to know
Donovan and the three head football coaches
who have led the Gators over the past decade.
Earlier this month, Lemerand took Meyer
aboard his private airplane and flew him to
two speaking engagements at Jacksonville
and Daytona Beach in one night
Meyer has "a lot of character," Lemerand
said, "and he expects a lot out of the guys, and
he's a wonderful motivator."
Restuccia said Lemerand is a motivator in
his own field business.
In 1995, Lemerand sold Gale Industries,
his Daytona Beach-based insulation company,
for more than $100 million. He stayed on as
president and chief executive officer until he
retired in 2000.
Lemerand is now taking on several other
ventures. He said he is involved with several
chain restaurants, including Stonewood Grill
& Tavern, San Francisco Oven and Peach
Valley Cafe. He also has a stake in three golf
courses and a few insurance companies.
His business "baby" at the moment is
Sanidoor, a hands-free door opening system
he invented. The system is being marketed for
the restaurant and medical industries, he said.
"I'm probably working almost as hard as
when I had my main business," he said.
Even on his 112-foot yacht, called Gale
Winds, he has his briefcase with him, he said.
He often takes the yacht to the Caribbean and
Although Lemerand is still hard at work in
several arenas, he's finding time for himself in
his "retirement." He goes to every Gators foot-
ball game home or away and most home
He said he planned to host a pregame party
for 150 guests aboard Gale Winds docked in
Jacksonville for Saturday's football game.
After the interview, Lemerand and his girl-
friend boarded his private airplane and flew
to his condominium near Banner Elk, N.C., for
a horseback riding session. He had a round of
golf planned for the next morning.
Lemerand said he is starting to enjoy his
money more than he used to because he
doesn't see the point of keeping it forever.
"I don't see any Brinks trucks in a funeral
procession," he said.
While the offense sputtered,
Georgia started to find life again.
Behind freshman quarterback
Matthew Stafford, the Bulldogs
scored off Tebow and Leak's
turnovers to cut the margin to 21-
14 with 8:17 remaining.
After the teams traded punts,
Wynn came in and sealed it.
"We've got a lot of issues
right now. At 7-1, you
shouldn't be dealing with

UF took the ball back with 3:
50 left, and the senior reeled off
five runs for 22 yards, including a
crucial 6-yarder to convert a third
The final carry allowed Leak
(14-of-28 for 163 yards) to kneel
and run out the clock.
But the win didn't erase UF's
problems on offense, at kicker
and with yellow hankies.
The Gators committed 10 pen-
alties for 75 yards, upping their
average to 9.25 per game, second
most among the 119 teams in

back by a penalty this season,

UF finishes in fifth place
By ALDEN GONZALEZ
The UF women's golf team had
its tournament shortened by rain
this weekend and instead played a
two-day, 36-hole outing Saturday and
"The girls need to be men-
tally tougher, and that's
something we definitely need
to work on."
UF women's golf coach
Despite starting off rusty, the
Gators improved their total score by
16 strokes Sunday and finished, the
11th annual Auburn Derby in fifth
place with a 34-over-par 610.
Their second-round surge cata-
pulted the Gators to their best finish
of the season, as they ended 16 strokes
behind a streaking Auburn team.
"This was the type of golf course
you need to be familiar with to do
good in," said Coach Jill Briles-Hinton
prior to the tournament.
While the Gators had played the
course before, the par-72, 6,121-yard
Auburn University Club provided
the home field advantage to its own
The Tigers shot a tournament-best
3-over-par 291 in the second round
and ousted the competition, defeating
second-place Alabama by 12 strokes.
"The girls need to be mentally
tougher, and that's something we
definitely need to work on," Briles-
Hinton said. "(Auburn) definitely
got the home-course advantage, and
that's just the way it goes when you
play on other people's turf."
MEN'S TEAM ADVANCES: The UF
men's golf team squeezed by the
first two rounds at the Callaway
Collegiate Match Play Championship
and faces Oklahoma State today to try
and earn a spot in the semifinals.
The No. 2 Gators defeated Arizona
3-2 in the first round and finished the
second round with Duke knotted up
But since the tiebreaker for match
play is holes won, the Gators edged
out the Blue Devils 30-28.
Sophomore Billy Horschel downed
Arizona's Creighton Honeck in the
first round 3 and 2, while Manuel
Villegas defeated Trey Denton 5 and
4 and Toby Ragland edged Nathan
Tyler 3 and 1.

Gators clinch SEC title in

Junior Shana Hudson dribbles the ball against Tennessee on Oct. 1. Hudson
scored the goal that tied South Carolina on Friday.
By RACHEL ROBINS
Their uniforms stuck to their bodies. Their
bodies shivered in the rain. But it was their
sunny smiles that told the story. They were the
Southeastern Conference champions.
Despite being without top defender Melanie
Booth who has been playing with Canada, tak-
ing on 13 new players, undergoing eight over-
times and enduring a difficult pre-conference
schedule, the No. 15 UF soccer team (11-4-4, 7-
1-3 SEC) earned full custody of the regular-sea-
son conference championship by tying South
Carolina 1-1 in double overtime Friday.
Vanderbilt was in position to share the SEC
title with UF but lost to Kentucky 1-0 on Friday.
The Commodores had to win and pray for a
Gators loss, but neither occurred.
South Carolina marks the end of UF's regu-
lar season. The Gators will now head to Orange
Beach, Ala., as the top seed in the SEC tourna-
ment. UF will play eighth seed Georgia on
Wednesday at 6 p.m., with the winner to face
the South Carolina-Vanderbilt victor Friday.
The Bulldogs took the Gators to overtime
earlier this season, but UF's Stacy Bishop
scored the golden goal to earn the 2-1 victory.
As for Vanderbilt? The Commodores hope
to eventually derail the Gators. Vanderbilt
dropped a 1-0 regular-season game against UF
and also wants to prove it should be the SEC
"I think all of our players especially the
seniors are really excited," UF coach Becky
Burleigh said. "(Winning the SEC) was one of
the things that they wanted to leave as part of
their legacy to get us on track with that, and
they did, so we owe a lot to them."
However, for more than 20 minutes against
South Carolina, it seemed possible the Gators
Defending national champions dominate preseason polls
* UF GOT 30 OF 31 FIRST-
PLACE VOTES IN THE COACH-
By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
The UF men's basketball team
has been overwhelmingly ranked
No. 1 in the ESPN/USA Today
Coaches' Preseason Poll.
The Gators received 30 of 31
possible first-place votes.
Rounding out the top four
is No. 2 North Carolina, No. 3
Kansas and No. 4 Ohio State.
The Gators will compete
against Kansas during the
Thanksgiving holiday weekend
and take on Ohio State, which
received one first-place vote, two
days before Christmas.
This marked the first time in
UF history that the Gators opened
the season at No. 1.
For UF coach Billy Donovan,
however, such rankings are irrel-
evant to the team's success.
"There were guys last year say-
ing we were ranked No. 75 in the
country, and it's the same group
of guys," Donovan said earlier
this month. "Are we No. 1 in the
country (now)? Probably not."
T h e

Basketball ing in the poll
this season, as
four other league teams are also
LSU, one of the Final Four
teams last season, was selected
No. 7, followed -by No. 12
Alabama, No. 22 Kentucky and
No. 24 Tennessee.
Last season, pundits expected
the SEC to have a down year
after the departures of so many
talented players, including UF's
Matt Walsh, Anthony Roberson
and David Lee.
This season, however, many
of the SEC's key players have
returned, including LSU's Glen
Davis, Alabama's Ronald Steele
and UF's junior foursome of
Joakim Noah, Al Horford, Corey
Brewer and Taurean Green.
The Gators also fared well in
SEC preseason voting.
The defending national cham-
pions were chosen by the media
to win the SEC title, and Noah was
selected as the league's preseason
Player of the Year.
UF was also picked to win the
SEC East while Alabama was cho-
sen to claim the West.
Noah and Horford were both
picked on the five-man First
Team Preseason All-SEC squad,
and Green and Brewer were both
elected to the Second Team.
All four were also named to the
Coaches' Preseason All-SEC Team.
UF falls behind early, turns tide on Alabama in sweep
By JOSH ARMSTRONG
Immediately after entering the CAVE, the
Gators found themselves in a hole.
The No. 7 UF volleyball team (20-2, 13-1
Southeastern Conference) fell behind early
in Alabama's dimly lit gym but rode a strong
defensive effort to a 30-27, 30-28, 30-20 win.
The win lets UF retain its driver's seat in
the SEC when the team travels to second-
place LSU on Friday.
Six team blocks helped the Gators over-
come a 10-3 deficit in game one. They fin-
ished the match with 14.5 team blocks while
sweeping away the Crimson Tide's seven-
match home win streak.
Sophomore middle blocker Kelsey Bowers
had a career-high 13 blocks. Her former best
(10) came against Alabama earlier this sea-
"I had no idea I had that many until
someone came up and gave me the stat
sheet," Bowers said. "I was really excited
to see that."
The Gators' back row also kept the
Tide at bay. Junior outside hitter Marcie
Hampton led the team with 20 digs, fol-
lowed by freshman libero Elyse Cusack
"We really felt that the keys to the match
were serving, passing and blocking," Coach
Mary Wise said. "After
Alabama's quick start, we
really got into a rhythm in
-'" all three skills and that
'' was the difference."
Junior setter Angie
McGinnis was two blocks
:* i..'-': shy of a fourth career tri-
Bowers pie-double, as she tallied
44 assists, 10 digs, eight
blocks and two aces.
On offense, junior middle blocker Kisya
Killingsworth had a team-high 15 kills in
her fifth consecutive match with double-digit
"I thought there was a chance that Kisya
could be really good today because she had a
great week in practice," Wise said. "The light
has really come on for her."
Alabama's strong front-row "defense had
10.5 team blocks and made games one and
two back-and-forth struggles.
"We did have to battle, and the first two
games they came out playing awesome
- and it was really a rough start for us, too"
Hampton said. "Just to battle through that
shows that we're doing pretty well."
would have to make room for Vanderbilt at the
top of the SEC.
The Gamecocks scored first on a 6-yard goal
by Mary Worthen.
Determined to propel her Gators to sole
champion status, junior Shana Hudson took
matters into her own hands and feet. She
gained control of an Ameera Abdullah corer
kick that was bouncing around in the box.
From 18 yards out, she mustered enough
power to kick the ball past South Carolina
goalie Laura Armstrong and into the back of
"I think all of our players especial-
ly the seniors are really excited."

It was the defender's first goal of her col-
"We made a little bit of a tactical adjustment
before the half," Burleigh said. "We went to a 3-
4-3 and that put a lot of pressure on them, and I
thought our team did well in that 3-4-3 to keep
the pressure on them the entire-second half.
Shana had a great shot left-footed back of
the net, so it was great."
Even though Burleigh hates tying, she was
happy with this one.
With rain puddles gracing the pitch and
her team battling for 110 minutes throughout a
constant downpour, Burleigh was happy to get
out of Columbia, S.C., with no injuries and the
SEC regular-season championship in hand.
"It just poured rain the entire time we were
playing," Burleigh said. "There was just stand-
ing water over the entire field. It was a little bit
of a dangerous situation after a while because
there was so much slide tackling."

No. 4 Gators move one step closer to national title

UF's biggest break came when
Southern Cal lost to mediocre
Oregon State on Saturday. But while
the Gators were expected to leapfrog
the Trojans, nobody foresaw Auburn
slipping. Ranked No. 5 heading into
the weekend, the Tigers' fell to No. 6.
Auburn was jumped by UF and No.

UF will now pay close atten-
tion to Thursday's West Virginia-
Louisville game. The victor will
likely be ranked ahead of the Gators
next week. The Gators' best-case
scenario assuming they win out
- is to have that game's winner
lose to either Rutgers or Pittsburgh,
which West Virginia and Louisville
both still face.
The only other game with larger
national implications is Michigan-

Stafford completed a paltry 13
of 33 passes for 151 yards and two
interceptions to boot. Reggie Lewis
recorded the second interception, a
crucial turnover with the Bulldogs
driving early in the fourth quarter.
UF continued executing its big-
play prevention defense, a strategy
that had backfired against Auburn
two weeks ago. The Gators rely
on stuffing the run and, in turn,
sacrifice short pass completions.
So when UF did not stop Auburn's
rushing attack, neither did it stop
the Tigers' passing game.
But the Gators still first in the
Southeastern Conference in rush
defense controlled Georgia's
rushing attack from the get-go. The
Bulldogs finished with 64 rushing
yards and had just 26 at halftime.

pass? UF successfully hounded

"We felt like we shouldn't have
let them score 14 points, but other
than that we felt like we pretty

lineman Ray McDonald said. "We
basically knew what they were do-

The chaos eventually led to two
offensive fumbles, one that cost
the Bulldogs seven points. On the
very first play of the second half,
defensive end Derrick Harvey
stripped tailback Kregg Lumpkin.
McDonald was there to scoop up
the ball and dive in for a 9-yard
score. He would have done a cart-
wheel to celebrate but, "I would
have gotten a penalty," McDonald
Jarvis Moss forced a fumble of
his own after he sacked Stafford on
Georgia's next possession. Harvey
pounced on the ball, adding to a
resume that also included a sack
and three tackles.

CONCUSSION FOR LEAK? Sunday morning, Meyer said quarter-
back Chris Leak approached him after the Georgia game to tell
him he had suffered a concussion. However, later during the
day, UF sports information said team doctors
had announced it was nothing more than a

as hard as he could and all that," Meyer said.

going to talk to him and appreciate the fact
That he's fighting through and battling and

Meyer said Leak was shaken after a hit taken around the

coach added that Leak burned three unnecessary timeouts

OUT LOUD, from page 18
Doesn't seem like much of a
rivalry to me.
Georgia was coming off a
narrow, three-point win against
Mississippi State the worst
team in the SEC West after
losing to lowly Vanderbilt the
worst team in the SEC East at
home the week before.
Stafford had one of his better
games Saturday, and he still con-
sistently overthrew his receivers
and made several mental errors.
While UF came away with a
win (barely), the Gators offense
played like garbage against
Georgia. Bottom line.
Anyone who disagrees is
vastly overrating Georgia.
For the second straight
week, UF's offense completely
shut down in the second half,
leaving the defense out to dry.
The Gators managed to stretch
the field horizontally, but they
learned that it can be very dif-
ficult to score when you are only
And in one of the most puz-
zling coaching decisions in
recent memory, Chris Hetland
was allowed to attempt two
field goals, missing them both,
Does UF not have a kicker on
its roster who can do better than
1-of-7? I think offensive tackle
Phil Trautwein might be more
successful if given the change.
And once again, the Gators
were flooded with mindless pen-
alties. UF is averaging 9.25 pen-
alties per game, good enough for
118th place out of 119 Division
I-A teams. Only Arizona State is
worse in that department.
But despite all of their glar-
ing flaws, the Gators are still 7-1
while facing a brutal schedule
thus far, proving that this team
may have the highest ceiling of
any team in college football.
If the Gators can somehow
put it all together, they appear to
be the one team in college, foot-
ball that can seriously challenge
No.1 Ohio State.
But the way UF is playing
right now, they'd be wise to
worry about Vanderbilt.
