Students watch debate, mock candidates

debate with members of the organization Monday evening at Hume Commons.
THE GOVERNOR'S DEBATE.
By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Members of the UF Law School
Republicans and the UF College
Democrats gathered Monday
night at two different locations to
watch the gubernatorial debate
between Republican candidate
Charlie Crist, Democratic candi-
date Jim Davis and Reform Party
candidate Max Linn;
Four Crist supporters met in
a two-story apartment one block
away from the Hippodrome
Theatre, while 15 Davis sup-
porters crowded into the Hume
The Law School Republican
members sat in front of a 60-
inch wide-screen TV, laughing
at Davis' comments and compli-
menting Crist's tan.
"His tan is good," said Molly
Cox, a second-year law student.
"Yeah, it's not too orange,"
responded Christian Waugh,
president of the Law School
In between sips of a vodka
tonic, Waugh criticized Davis'
plan to reduce the rates of home
"He is an idiot," Waugh said,
adding that Davis' plan would
make insurance companies leave
Although the alcoholic drinks
were missing on campus, the
College Democrats watched the
debate with fists in the air and
plenty of laughter and cheering.
They made fun of Crist's black
eyebrows for their sharp contrast
with his white hair, and they
mockingly repeated phrases Crist
has often used.
The Crist supporters said
UF alumnus Davis was dancing
around the questions.
"Davis is not explaining his
plans," Waugh said.
Tom Jardon set his Michelob
Ultra on the coffee table as Crist,
an FSU alumnus, criticized Davis

UF deems safety zones successful despite death
By JAMES RIGNEY
A UF official said the student safety zones
at the Florida-Georgia football game were a
success, despite the death of a Jacksonville
Randall Scott Amos, 27, was declared dead
at the hospital after falling down a flight of
stairs at the Tailgate Bar & Grill across the
street from Alltel Stadium.
The Jacksonville Medical Examiner's
Office is withholding all information regard-
ing Amos' death until an examination is com-
plete in a few days.
David Kratzer, UF's associate vice president
for Student Affairs, said it was sad that Amos
died, but the death didn't have anything to do
with the Sideline Student Safety Zones.
"We're not trying to protect the entire city
of Jacksonville, that wasn't our purpose," he
said. "Jacksonville is just such a large city, and
we don't have the resources."
Kratzer said UF administrators' "thoughts
and prayers" are going to the Amos family.
"We certainly under-
stand after having two
students die," he said, re-
ferring to the deaths of UF
Students Thomas Brown in
,i, 2005 and David Ferguson
Amos Michelle Bedoya, who has
known him for two and a
half years, said she was shocked when she
was told Sunday that he had died.
"He was a great friend, neighbor and very
involved in community. He had achieved
more in 27 years than many people do in a
lifetime," she said.
Bedoya said she last saw Amos a few hours
before his death at a tailgating party.
"He'll be dearly missed," she said. "There's
a special place in heaven for him."
Mark Richardson, assistant chief for the
Jacksonville Sheriff's Office, said despite
Amos' tragic death, there was less crime at the
game than previous years.
There were 35 arrests Friday and Saturday,
most of them for alcohol violations.
Possible sighting of extinct bird spawns interest, exhibit
MANY ARE STILL SKEPTICAL THAT
THE BIRDS EXIST.
Alligator Contributing Writer
The elusive ivory-billed woodpecker may
still be flying around.
Once North America's largest woodpecker,
the bird was thought to have been extinct for
more than 50 years, but recent discoveries
show that there may be a few still flying.
Recent interest in the hawk-sized bird
began when sources said they saw or heard
ivory-billed woodpeckers in eastern Arkansas
in April 2004 and in the Florida Panhandle in
2005 and 2006, said David Steadman of the
Florida Museum of Natural History.
"There have been scattered potential sight-
ings of (the ivory-billed woodpecker), but no-
body has been able to get a photograph of one
or produce evidence that everybody believes,"
he said. "A lot of people think that they don't
exist at all."
The last uncontested sight-
Stte ing of the ivory-billed was
News in Louisiana in 1944, and the
area has since been logged,
Steadman said. Confined to
mature swamp forests in the Southeast, the
bird was never common, but most of its habi-
tat has been destroyed, causing skepticism of
the recent sightings, Steadman said.
Since it was found only in mature forests,
the woodpecker represented some of the
remaining wild places in Florida, which prob-
ably had more ivory-billed woodpeckers than
any other state, Steadman said.
Because of the interest, the museum will
display two stuffed birds until mid-January.
"The loss of the ivory-billed itself is irre-
placeable, like any other species, but it sort of
represents a loss of wilderness," he said.

Funding sources split County Commission candidates
Bailey touts free market solutions
Chestnut hails shared-cost care
By DOMINICK TAO
Local scuba shop owner Lloyd Bailey
wants to change the way Alachua County
is run by reducing taxes and government
That is why Bailey is challenging former
Gainesville Mayor Cynthia Chestnut for
her District 4 seat on the Alachua County
A self-proclaimed history and .govern-
ment expert, Bailey said if he wins the seat,
he will promote free-market capitalism and
reduce the county's current public welfare
programs, which he said are sapping the
county's growth potential.
"We are heading down the path to so-
cialism, where the people are looking to
the government to solve their every woe,"
Bailey said. "Every attempt at socialism
and communism has failed."
A former UF student who quit school
in 1981 to start a scuba diving business in
Gainesville, Bailey wants to roll back the
quarter-percent sales tax increase instituted
by his incumbent opponent that is being
used to provide health care for Gainesville's
Instead of better government services,
Bailey said the answer to many community
problems, like unemployment, is giving
small businesses the ability to grow and
to manage employees without government
"Wealth redistribution is obviously not
the answer," Bailey said.
"Don't feel sorry for the seniors."
Alachua County Commission candidate
For college-aged residents, Bailey said
his policies would be beneficial because
they promote less dependence on govern-
ment programs like Social Security.
"Don't feel sorry for the seniors," Bailey
said. "The prospects are grim for the cur-
Both candidates in the District 4 race
consider severe traffic congestion to be a
major campaign issue; however, Bailey's
solution to the problem is much more
expansive than Chestnut's support of the
commission's idea to resequence traffic
Bailey wants to have an expressway that
either circles or bisects the county.
To fund the project, Bailey said he would
take funds from local welfare programs.
By DOMINICK TAO
- Cynthia Chestnut is counting on her
history of "compassionate" civil service to
get re-elected as an Alachua County com-
When Chestnut was elected as a commis-
sioner in 2002, she said one of the communi-
ty's biggest problems was the lack of health
care among Alachua County's working poor
- people with jobs but without the means to
save money or pay for health insurance.
Even though it resulted in a quarter-
percent increase in countywide sales tax,
Chestnut said the program she created to
give health insurance to working poor,
called CHOICES, has been a success,
"The state is not addressing health care
in a comprehensive manner, so the task falls
upon local governments," she said.
Her opponent, conservative candidate
Lloyd Bailey, is staunchly opposed to pro-
grams that redistribute wealth in the way
CHOICES does, but Chestnut said in order
to have a healthy community, healthy citi-
zens are a necessity.
"It's about priorities in the commu-
nity and the quality of life," Chestnut said.
"People want services. Services come with a
price. If you can get people to share that cost,
that is the way to go."
She said that to have a healthy economy,
a community should have healthy workers.
Bailey said Chestnut's liberal welfare pol-
icies are a liability, but Chestnut disagrees.
She said they are one of her biggest assets.
"The way I look at it,
i.J- everyone can help pay
~ something, but everyone
Scan help give each other
something in return,"
Chestnut also dis-
agrees with her challenger
on the solution to c
Chestnut said Bailey's idea to create an
expressway around the city would be un-
realistically expensive and would involve
eminent domain issues, due to which the
government would be forced to buy land
from residents in order to put down new
Chestnut supports the joint effort by UF,
the county and the city to synchronize traffic
lights to alleviate road congestion.
She also said increasing public transpor-
tation, like adding more Regional Transit
System bus routes, could reduce the near-
gridlock conditions during rush hour.

Gay couples deserve adoption rights
Florida's got something going for it that no other
state has. Can you guess what it is? No, not its
massive influx of the elderly each winter. Nope,
not the record for "Most Hurricane Pummelings in a
Single Season." Not even the Gator Nation-- I'm sure
SNebraska has the "Cornhusker Country" or something.
Maybe those things are all true, but what I'm talk-
ing about is the fact that Florida is the only state in the
union to explicitly ban adoption by gays and lesbians
whether they're single or in same-sex couples. Not
only is this blatant discrimination, but it robs innocent
children of loving, nurturing homes.
According to the Department of Children and
Families, there are currently more than 4,600 children
in foster care and this number grows every year.
Of these, almost 2,000 "desperately need adoptive
families." In Florida, gays can be foster parents, but the
children in their care can be removed at any time if an
adoptive family is found. It doesn't matter how long the
children have been in their care in some cases, for
more than 10 years.
The law was enacted in 1977 as part of a "Save the
Children" campaign that maligned homosexuals, say-
ing they would "turn children gay." The bill's sponsor
even said, "We are really tired of (lesbians and gay men.)
We wish you'd go back in the closet." Since its adoption
no pun intended this law has been disputed in
court three times but has never been overturned.
The American Psychiatric Association supports
adoption by gays and has long held the position that
"children raised by gay or lesbian parents exhibit the
same level of emotional, cognitive, social and sexual
functioning as children raised by heterosexual parents."
But the Florida Legislature decided, once -upon a time,
that they knew best that mar-
J ,.1 ried heterosexuals provide the
best environment for raising

Jessica Holland households now? The prevalence
Jess Suggests of divorced couples and single
firstname.lastname@example.org mothers has perhaps even put
the typical married couple in the
minority. But single and divorced
individuals are still eligible to adopt. The Department
of Children and Families doesn't discriminate on the
grounds of religious faith, race, or education so why
discriminate against homosexuals?
If gay mommies and daddies were allowed to adopt
the children for whom they are foster parents, the state's
burden would be eased and more children would have
loving families of their own.
Gay and straight people can be equally good parents.
In fact, someone willing to go through the process and
headaches of filing for adoption someone who really
wants a child might make a better parent than some-
one who just happens to have a baby, whether he or she
wants a child or not. So why should the state deny a
potentially great parent a child just because of his or her
Unfortunately, neither of the candidates for governor
have seriously addressed this issue in his campaign. But
hopefully, this backwards, outdated, discriminatory law
will be stricken from the Florida law books once and for
all whoever wins the election next week.

Proposed homeless center gets doubled budget

dated plans on the possibility of using the
Downtown Plaza for construction equipment

The plan's Implementation Committee,
co-chaired by Gainesville Mayor Pegeen
Hanrahan and County Commissioner
Rodney Long, spoke at a joint city and county
commission meeting Monday.
Long asked commissioners to allow
$183,000 funds budgeted for the 10-Year
Plan that were unused to be used for a
one-stop homeless assistance center. Those
funds would be added to the center's budget
of $175,000, bringing the total money for the
center to about $350,000.
Long said the center would include fa-
cilities for hygiene, laundry, mail and phone
services, a day center and an outside area for
residents. No food would be distributed at
the center, he said.
Commissioners also discussed the

A nasal spray flu vaccine, or

the vaccination at the SHCC, and
between 200 and 300 people got
it at the outreach clinics. The flu

November, but it will be extended if
the lack of provisions continues.
Mitchell said the shot is offered
to promote and maintain a healthy

that people who fall into the high-
risk category get the shot.

Florida lacks Hispanic counselors

Doing homework, studying and par-
ticipating in class are vital to a student's
education, but Vivien Oliva believes the
need for a guidance counselor is just as
important. For Oliva, being a Hispanic
high school student was difficult, but
she thanks her counselor for being hon-
est about the obstacles she needed to
overcome in order to be successful.
Sondra Smith-Adcock, an associate
professor for counselor education at UF,
said it is important for a Spanish-speak-
ing student to have a counselor with
whom they can communicate.
However, a UF study shows that
there are not enough bilingual coun-
selors in the state to serve the growing
For the project, Smith-Adcock and
professor Harry Daniels conducted
research throughout Florida and dis-
covered that 80 percent of schools face a
dearth of Spanish-speaking counselors.
Their research also showed that stu-
dents who come from different cultures
are less likely to seek help from the
guidance department at their school.
The ratio of students to counselors
in Florida is 300 to 1, while the recom-
mended ratio stands at 150 to 1. Both
Smith-Adcock and Daniels said the
Spanish-speaking ratio is separated
from the recommended ratio by an even

Guidance counselors should try to
focus on not only students, but also their
families. This will help them succeed in
their educational careers, he said.
Hillsborough County School Board
member Susan Valdes said that in order
to alleviate the shortage, districts need
to encourage bilingual teachers to get
master's degrees in counseling.

cation system is not culturally

The research, conducted about five
years ago, determined that Hillsborough
County is the fastest growing and most
diverse in Florida. Along with other
colleagues, Smith-Adcock and Daniels
created a program at UF to educate
Hispanic counselors from that area.

"Consejeros: Levantando El Pueblo,"
meaning "Counselors: Lifting the
Smith-Adcock said they recruited 20
bilingual teachers who knew Spanish.
Over the course of three years, the hope-
ful graduates studied part time at UF
during Summer semesters.
"We chose to keep the teachers in
their communities instead of having
them be full-time students at UF,"
Smith-Adcock said. "This way they
could remain at their teaching jobs."
Of the 20 teachers who participated,
17 graduated a high completion rate,
The program ended in 2005, and
Smith-Adcock said she is checking
on the progress of the graduates in
Hillsborough County. The UF College
of Education is trying to make the pro-
gram available to more counties.
"We hope to more systematically
work to recruit other groups of bilingual
counseling students," she said.
Both Smith-Adcock and Daniels
agreed that lack of funds prevents
people from studying counseling. More
money is needed than even a state-
wide scholarship program could offer,
Oliva said her experience with her
high school guidance counselor was
"life-altering." She is now a district-lev-
el bilingual counselor for Hillsborough
County public schools.
"(My counselor) gave me direction
at a time when I needed it most," Oliva
said. "I believe all counselors owe that
to the students in their care."

E OF WILL PLAY TEXAS A&M
FOR THIRD PLACE.
By ALDEN GONZALEZ
The UF men's golf team
dropped its first match during
the third round of the Calloway
Collegiate Match Play on
The Gators fell 3-1-1 to defend-
ing national champion and No. 4
Oklahoma State after defeating
Arizona and Duke on Sunday.
The Gators will conclude their
tournament and fall season today
as they play the fourth round
of the tournament against No. 7
Texas A&M in a battle for third
Junior Manuel Villegas provid-
ed the only victory for the Gators
and improved his match-play re-
cord to 3-0-0.
He bested Trent Leon with a 2
and 1 victory by birdying the 12th
and 13th holes and holding onto
his one-hole lead throughout the
rest of the match.
Although it came in a losing
effort, Villegas' performance is a
good sign after coming off a dev-
astating 15-over (231) tournament
"Manny has been the horse
for us this week," Coach Buddy
-Alexander said. "He's been play-
ing in the No. 2 spot, so he's not
facing mediocre competition. He's
catching some good players.
"We're ecstatic to have him
back at this level after not playing
his best in our last tournament."
Sophomore Billy Horschel
also remained undefeated for
the event. He halved Oklahoma
State's Tyler Leon after trailing
by one stroke with only four holes
However, sophomore Toby
Ragland dropped his round to
Ryan Posey 1 up to fall to 1-1-1 for
Freshman Tyson Alexander
and junior Tyler Brown remained
winless for the event, as both
were beat 2 and 1 during the third
'We could have played a little
better, but we hung in there with a
good golf team," Alexander said.
"It was good to see us battle like
that. We're keeping our matches
close and giving ourselves chanc-
es to win.
"We get a chance to play again
(today), and hopefully we can
continue to play well."
We want you to succeed, and all the signs say GO.
That's why we've created an environment that's conducive
to personal and professional growth and success. At

Gators riding team-first approach to SEC success
By JOSH ARMSTRONG
UF volleyball coach Mary
Wise has often described the
No. 7 Gators as a "work in prog-
ress," but "jack-of-all-trades"
might be a better term.
While many teams rely on
one main hitter, UF's leader in
kills, blocks and aces commonly
changes from match to match.
So, even when a Gators player
has an off-night, the overall
team statistics hardly fluctuate.
Wise pointed to Sunday's
match at Alabama as a perfect
example of how UF operates, as
slight leads in overall kills, digs
and blocks helped the Gators
down the Crimson Tide.
"That match typifies the '06
Gators because you can look
from player to player, and every
single one of them contributed,"
Wise said. "(Junior opposite hit-
ter) Amber McCray didn't have
to take 50 more swings than
Through Oct. 22, the Gators
are No. 11 in the country in kills
per game, but no player cracks
the top-30 individually.
Yet the Gators have defeated
four teams with top-30 ranked
hitters in South Carolina (No.
3 Shonda Cole), Florida A&M
(No. 2 Maria Andonova and
No. 29 Marrita Crocket), Hawaii
(No. 6 Jamie Houston) and
South Florida (No. 22 Marcela
"(The Tide) match typifies
the '06 Gators because
you can look from player
to player, and every single
one of them contributed."
UF volleyball coach
UF is also No. 18 nationally in
blocks per game without boast-
ing any player in the top 30.
This multi-pronged Gators
team could not be shut down
by Utah and the nation's No. 1
blocker, Emillie Toone.
However, Kelsey Bowers
has been the one player shin-
ing as of late. Monday, Bowers
was named Southeastern
Conference Defensive Player of
the Week. Against the Tide, the
sophomore recorded 13 block
assists, a UF record. As for UF?
The Alabama win was a
good example of the Gators'
rough road play.
After seemingly exorcizing
their travel demons with 3-0
pounding of Mississippi and
Mississippi State three weeks
ago, the Gators had trouble
with Auburn and Alabama,
two teams they dominated in
Gainesville. With No. 11 LSU
waiting for UF to come to Baton
Rouge on Friday and a trip to
Tennessee on the horizon, it only
gets tougher for the Gators.
"It's one thing to beat those
teams in the O'Connell Center;
it's another thing to do it on the
road," Wise said. "It's not just
because of all the issues you
have to deal with travel and
missing flights, and we did all
that but because teams play
so well at home."
Another concern the Gators
face is that they will be playing
teams that are essentially out of
the title picture in essence,
they hope to be UF spoilers.
"What we saw in the Auburn
team with some veteran players
was they had nothing to lose,"
Wise said. "An analogy would
be: They were just taking.blind
shots at the basket and they all

UF CROSS COUNTRY
Gators coach wants players fresh in time for NCAAs
By ALEX WEINTRAUB
Alligator Writer -
UF cross country coach Jeff Pigg wants:
the Gators to know they will qualify for
the NCAAs. He just wants them to get past
NCAA South Regionals in two weeks and
get ready for the big show.
"They're very hungry to be at the NCAA
meet this year," Pigg said. "We're going to
go to that regional and (we're going to) get
past it and have both teams at the NCAA
The Gators will have an off-week before
traveling to Knoxville, Tenn., to- compete
in the South Regionals, where the top two
teams receive an automatic bid to the NCAA
Championships in Terre Haute, Ind.
Pigg plans to rest his team for a couple of
days and then work his runners Wednesday
and Friday He said he doesn't want to train
the team too'' much because he wants his
athletes to be fresh for the NCAAs. Some
team receive at-large bids based on their
season's success and the Gators should be
in this position.
Pigg is feeling confident that UF is start-
ing to look like a contender, and with good
reason. Senior Daniel Parker's return to the
team this weekend ga~\ the men the much-
needed fifth or ti\th runner
"It's like if you have a big job to do and
another good guy shows up to help," Pigg
said. "It takes the pressure off a couple of
our younger guys who may have felt, 'Oh
man, I have to do a good job and be the fifth
or sixth man."'
Pigg was referring to Parker's return
Saturday at the Southeastern Conference
Championships in Baton Rouge, La., after he

and have both teams at the NCAA
UF cross country coach
had missed summer workouts a staple of
the Pigg tenure -because of an internship.
Parker finished strong, taking fifth place
on the team and 22nd overall with a time of
25:03.11. Junior Steven Hassen led the way
for the men with a time of 24:20.13.
The men only finished behind Arkansas
in the final rankings with a score of 73, an
impressive number considering the course
was in squalid conditions after a downpour
the previous night.
The women were led by junior Lindsay
Sundell, who took eighth place overall with
a time of 20:23.86. She also earned theonly
all-SEC honor for the women's squad. Her
finish was the second fastest ever recorded
by a women's runner at UF in the 6K race.
Pigg contends if the weather had been dif-
ferent, Sundell might have run faster.
"That course was muddy and hilly," Pigg
said. "I think if it had been a flat course, she
would have run faster than anyone il the
history of the school."
Sophomore Jacy Kruzel took second on
the women's squad and 18th overall with a
time of 20:57.34. Still, Pigg did admit to be-
ing a little disappointed in the women.
"I think this is the best team we've had
since I've been here," Pigg said, "but I don't

"It's my job as a backup to

Who cares, as long as the Gators keep
winning, right? Sure, as long as your name
is Meyer and you publicly say winning a na-
tional title isn't one of your goals.
If you're just tuning in, UF is one of sev-
eral one-loss teams who will all try to make
"Pick me, pick me," arguments to the coaches
and Harris poll voters who help determine
who plays for the championship.
The Gators' strength of schedule will be-
gin taking a steady hit Saturday, meaning UF
must rely on blowing out teams to impress
the nation. Sources tell us you can best awe
voters by catering to what your offense does
In UF's case, this means spreading the
field with receivers. But someone forgot to
tell the coaches, who have erected a state-
of-the-art invisible force field to be placed 10
yards ahead of the line of scrimmage.
The Gators have taken fewer shots than
Stephen Jackson, and defenses are getting the
idea. You can only run so many rushing plays
in a row before opponents say, "Hey how
about a crazy idea? Let's stack the box with
eight or nine guys!"
This is what happened Saturday against
Georgia. The Gators were running, and when
they weren't running, they were throwing
bubble screens reminiscent of Ron Zook.
Where were the slants to take advantage
of the speed of Percy Harvin, Andre Caldwell
and Jemalle Cornelius? Where were the deep
throws to the sure-handed Dallas Baker?
Meyer said the Bulldogs were dropping
back safeties all game long. Logic tells you
this would open up 10- to 15-yard under-
neath routes, yet none of these were to be
"We have to make sure that we don't let
the defense dictate what we do on offense,"
Leak said. "We have to keep doing what we
do best on offense; we have fast guys, and
we need to make sure they use their speed to
stretch the defense."
Some argue the defenses UF has faced are
just too formidable to score on. Looks like

Tebow to throw; UF laments penalties
By ANTONIO GONZALEZ
Alligator Staff Writer
UF's offensive struggles have started to boil over.
Excessive penalties, turnovers, dropped passes and a lack
of scoring have prompted changes on offense.
Coach Urban Meyer announced Monday that he
plans to have freshman quarterback Tim Tebow do more
"We did make the decision," Meyer said. "You can
expect to see Tim run the offense."
While Chris Leak will remain the starter, Tebow will
take on a bigger role in the offense, which has failed to
score in the second half in each of the last two games.
Tebow said he feels capable of managing the entire of-
fense and doing more than just running the football.
"You hope you can run it," Tebow said. "You just got
to find out in the games."
The concern with rapidly changing
quarterbacks is that it could mess with the
flow of the offense, Meyer said.
Football And he doesn't want Leak to feel any
1 mistake could cost him his job.
"I don't ever want to have a quarterback looking over
his shoulder," Meyer said. "I don't believe he is, tbut that's
Quarterbacks aside, the UF offense has hurt itself with
penalties and turnovers this season, especially of late.
The Gators are the second-most penalized team in the
nation, averaging 9.25 penalties a game for 64.25 yards.
This has stalled drives and forced UF into third-and-
"It's tough to get rhythm and momentum going when
you have penalties and you have to fight through all the
adversity," Leak said.
However, Meyer doesn't want to make excuses. He
said the penalties show a lack of discipline that starts
"I take responsibility," he said. "Here I am worried
about possessions and clock rules, and then my team
looks like they have a lack of discipline on offense with
the turnovers and penalties."

Chris Leak's ailment was more of a
headache for UF coach Urban Meyer than
it was for the senior quarterback.
A day after Meyer claimed Leakplayed
part of Saturday's Georgia game with a
concussion, the quarterback confirmed
Monday that it was only a headache.
"There was no concussion; I got ding-
ed," Leak said. "That's what happens
through the course of a football game. It
really didn't affect my play at all."
Meyer said that Leak told him after the
game that he was experiencing blurred vi-
sion. The coach said he assumed Leak had
a concussion because of the symptoms
"I said, 'Coach, I
don't know if I got a
concussion or what,'"
Leak said. "I didn't
have a concussion, but
I didn't know. When
you get your bell rung
S in a game like that,
Leak you don't know what
to think of it."
Receiver Andre Caldwell said that
during the game, Leak alerted teammates
in the huddle that he was suffering from
blurred vision. However, the quarterback
never told this to coaches.
"I thought he had shaken all the cob-
webs, but he obviously didn't because he
had a strong headache at the end of the
game," Caldwell said.
JAMES IN A BOOT: Freshman returned

with a sprained ankle, and the return
