STUDENT ACTIVISM


Democrats protest timing of Card's speech


By JOEY CHINDAMO
Alligator Writer
jchindamo@alligator.org

A former White House chief of staff
will speak on campus tonight, but a few
UF students aren't happy about it.
Andrew Card, former chief of staff to
President Bush, will speak at the Stephen
C. O'Connell Center at 8 p.m. There will
be 'a question-and-answer period at the
end of his speech.
But because Card is speaking close to
Election Day on Tuesday, UF's College
Democrats plan to protest Card's ap-
pearance outside of the O'Connell
Center, according to an event posted on
Facebook.com.


The event description says that "UF
(Student Government failed) the Student
Body" by allowing a two-month gap be-
tween "partisan speakers."
The Rev. Al Sharpton, who is a
Democrat, spoke at UF on Sept. 12.
"Political appointees in Student
Government's ACCENT and Chomp
the Vote programs have failed to prop-
erly serve the student body," the Facebook
event description said. "ACCENT failed to
fairly schedule partisan election speakers
and Chomp the Vote was missing in action
all semester."
William Foster the event's creator
and the UF College Democrats' editorial
chairman could not be reached for com-
ment.


"I just want it on record that both
of them were offered the same
dates. One chose September, one
chose now."
Andrew Brown
Accent chairman

Andrew Brown, the chairman of Accent,
said the organization didn't decide when
each speaker would come to UF. Sharpton
and Card were each offered "five or six"
dates to choose from and selected their
own speaking dates to fit their schedules,
Brown said.
"I just want it on record that both of
them were offered the same dates," Brown


said. "One chose September, one chose
now."
Before the presidential election in
2004, Accent sponsored liberal filmmaker
Michael Moore to speak on Oct. 4, 2004,
and George Pataki, New York's Republican
governor, to speak Oct. 27, 2004.
Brown said he would rather the UF
College Democrats protest Card instead of
the Accent staff about the speech's date.
"The best way for them to protest is to
drive their masses out ... focus their pro-
testing on the actual speaker and the is-
sues, not the dates and the times," Brown
said. "Come to the O'Dome, protest peace-
fully and responsibly, come inside, listen
to the speaker and ask the tough ques-
tions."


Monster mash
Cody Banes, 7, swirls around during the Super Saturn Spin-off at the Delta Gamma Sorority house Tuesday
during the annual Ghouls, Goblins and Greeks event on Sorority Row. An estimated 600 kids came for the
event, for which the Panhellenic Council's chapters decorated their houses and yards to provide a night of
entertainment for children and their families.


Student apathy


reigns at polls

By BRITTANY DAVIS
Alligator Writer
bdavis@alligator.org

Though Gainesville bars close at 2 a.m. and renters'
regulations continue to tighten around students, this
quiet constituency continues to snub the polls.
For the past three decades, people between the ages of
18 and 24 have voted in numbers 15 to 25 percent lower
than other demographics in local, state and federal elec-
tions. In Gainesville, where 50,000 of the 120,000 residents
are college students, young people's in-
decision has become their decision.
A strong voice from homeowners
in Gainesville has recently resulted
in harsher penalties regarding noise
violations and increased the costs of
landlord permits, which will be passed
on to student renters.
Braddy And in a contentious governor's race
between Charlie Crist and Jim Davis,
neither candidate has reached out to college students by
making speeches at the state's largest campuses.
Politicians may not feel the need to answer to a con-
stituency that has not asked for a response.
Gainesville City Commissioner Ed Braddy said politi-
cians are more likely to cater to the needs of their most
vocal constituents, who are usually older.
"1 like to think we weigh all constituencies the same,"
Braddy said, "but that doesn't happen if you know cer-
tain groups are not going to shut up or are going to vote a
certain way," he said.

For the most part, students embrace 'free hugs'

For some UF students, a walk
through Turlington Plaza may end
with a giant bear hug from a com-
plete stranger.
A group of UF students has
picked up on a movement that
started in Sydney, Australia, by giv-
ing out free hugs to passersby in the
plaza once a week at random.
Their sign, advertising "free
hugs," has been on display spo-
radically for the past few weeks.
This week's hugs will be available
Thursday.
The group was founded when
fraternal twins Richard and Alfred
Aday, both UF seniors, came across
an online video of Australian Juan
Mann hugging complete strangers
in Sydney. The twins, along with
four other students three from
UF and one from SFCC decided
that free hugs were something they
could support.
"When you're watching the vid-
eo, it feels like you're being hugged
too," Richard Aday said.
The three-and-a-half-minute
video became an overnight sensa-
tion on YouTube.com and was
even broadcast on ABC's "Good
Morning America."
Mann's actions were banned by
city officials, but the video shows

The group gave out the first free
hugs Oct. 13. People are generally
nice about the hugs and willing to
participate, Richard Aday said.
"Just seeing them smile is
good enough for me."
Sean Weisbrot
hugger

At first the group only had signs
with black lettering, but then it
added orange and blue to attract
more Gator fans.
About 150 people got hugs on
the first day, Richard Aday said.
It's a simple idea, but it feels
good to brighten people's days, he
said.
Even when people do not agree
to a free hug, they usually smile or
give a good-natured laugh as they
walk past, Weisbrot said.
"Just seeing them smile is good
enough for me," he said.
However, some aren't so recep-
tive.
Excuses for refusing a free hug
have ranged from "I'm allergic to
hugs" to "I just got some love from
my boyfriend" or "No thanks, I'm
married."


Nursing students win service award at state convention


* FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE 1994,
THE STUDENT ASSOCIATION WON.

By CHRISTIANA LILLY
Alligator Contributing Writer

While the Gators were celebrating victory
over the University of Georgia on Saturday,
some UF nursing students were bringing


their own award back to Gainesville.
Last week, the UF chapter of the Nursing
Students Association won the Chapter
Award for its community service and for
spreading awareness of the nursing profes-
sion at the organization's state convention in
Daytona Beach.
UF has not won the award since 1994.
"It really shows the hard work and
dedication our students put into our ac-


tivities through this organization," said Joan
Castleman, the faculty adviser for the UF
chapter.
UF The award is the
AcademicS highest at the conven-
tion. Castleman received
the Community Health Faculty of the Year
award.
Along with working with Relay for Life
and the March of Dimes, the chapter worked


with the Suwannee River Area Health
Education Center. The nursing students also
held information sessions about the impor-
tance of nursing, at a career fair for more than
400 Gainesville and surrounding area high
school students.
"By going (to the convention) you re-
ally feel empowered to want to take ac-
tion in your career and to use your voice,"
Castleman said.

Fire adds 'chaos'


to downtown party


* NO ONE WAS HARMED.

By JESSICA RIFFEL
Alligator Staff Writer
jriffel@alligator.org

Firefighters finished put-
ting out a fire in a downtown
Gainesville condominium just
as a banana, Axl Rose and a
ninja-in-training arrived.
Gainesville Fire Rescue
responded to a fire at a fourth-
floor luxury condominium in
Union Street Station, above the
Dragonfly Sushi & Sake Co.,
shortly before Halloween par-
tiers took over bars downtown.
"It's always strange pulling
up to a fire and seeing people in
costume," said Michael Fulton,
a district chief for fire rescue.
He said firefighters were
called out at 5:25 p.m. to an
empty condo. A box that had
been set on the stove had caught
fire and ignited the cabinets


above, triggering an alarm and
sprinklers, which put most of
the fire out, Fulton said.
Several fire trucks were
parked for a few hours, while
firefighters dried water from the
sprinklers. It had dripped down
the side of the building, getting
part of Dragonfly's outdoor
seating area wet.
The firefighters were gone
by the time the annual down-
town block party kicked off.
"If it would have happened
at 11 p.m., it would have been
mayhem," firefighter Wes
McQueen said.
Several men, one dressed
as Axl Rose and another as a
ninja-in-training, were already
outside the restaurant.
Axl Rose, aka Justin
Weathers, 27, said the fire trucks
with the flashing red lights add-
ed to the Halloween festivities.
"It's the chaos ofHalloween,"
he said. "You never know
what's going to happen."

Orange and blue Crocs in high demand among Gators


Ventilated shoes are popular items at UF Bookstore


By PAULA BOADA
Alligator Contributing Writer

The barren rows stared back at all who
meandered through the bookstore that day.
Some shelves held two or three pairs, but the
display was full of holes where more should
be hanging.
Crocs shoes are one of the many new
items the UF Bookstore now sells. According
to Crocs manufacturers, the durable shoes are
made of a malleable plastic material and were
introduced in the United States in 2003. These
orthopedic-style shoes have holes on top for


ventilation, a built-in arch support and heel
straps that can be rolled forward to convert
the shoes into clogs.
The shoes sold in the bookstore come in
the colors orange and blue, and bear Gators
logos.
Before UF played the University of
Alabama, bookstore director Lynne Vaughan
ordered 104 pairs of the orange and blue
shoes. By the end of the day, the store had
only 20 pairs left hanging on the shelves to
sell Monday morning.
"Crocs are like the pogs of college," said
Tim Miller, history senior at UF. "The Gator


Crocs are like the slammer of them all, and I
love mine."
After the initial success of the shoe sales,
Vaughan placed an order for 550 pairs to.
sell during the Homecoming
Student weekend.
Life The store management tried a
new approach to sell these items,
offering them along the parade route in front -
of Emerson Alumni Hall..
Again, customers of all ages were eager to
make these shoes a part of their apparel. By
the end of the weekend, the store had only
60 pairs left.


"There was a little girl out there, probably
about 3 years old, and she was dressed in a
cheerleader outfit," Vaughan said. "And she
just had to have her Crocs."
The shoes range in price from $29.95 for
children' sizes to $34.95 for adult sizes.
Parents especially seem to buy these shoes
for their children for practical reasons.
"You put the Crocs and the kid in the bath-
tub, and they both come out clean," Vaughan
said.
Vaughan is trying to integrate Crocs into
the merchandise sold at the Health Science
Center Bookstore at Shands at UF
She also wants to sell a closed-toe version
of the shoe in neutral colors at the retailer.


Coup d'etat staged

At a speedy meeting with
Halloween festivities Tuesday
night, the Student Senate intro-
duced a bill to thank UF officials
for the safety zone at this week's
Florida-Georgia game.
Sen. Cecilia Amador said she
supports the bill but encouraged
students to avoid drinking to the
point of engaging in "stupid, ir-
responsible behaviors."
Sen. Luis Delgado, dressed
as a Hooters girl, won the
Halloween costume contest
and a gift card to the Swamp
Restaurant. Senators' costumes
included a hippie, a banana, a
pirate, a Founding Father and


Beaty Towers.

Senate and

"I will not take questions," he
declared to a group of clapping
and laughing senators. "I do not
answer to anyone."
The Senate also amended
rules to ensure organizations'
travel expenses meet UF rules.

Tidy stores may deter shoplifters


By RENE PEREZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

A new UF study aims to curb
shoplifting by suggesting ways
that a store's interior design can be
used against potential thieves.
The study, conducted by UF
student Caroline Cardone for
her master's thesis, found that a
store's layout can have a big effect
on whether a shoplifter will de-
cide to steal. Factors'such as clean-
liness, wide aisles and ample staff
can make a shoplifter feel more
vulnerable and less likely to steal,
according to a UF news release.
Sandy Canevari, co-manager of
Victoria's Secret at the Oaks Mall,
agreed that the layout of the store
is important but said she takes a
simpler approach to prevention.
"Customer service is the best
deterrent against shoplifting," she
said. "We are sure to make eye
contact with customers as they
walk in so they know they are be-
ing checked on."
The recently remodeled store


boasts several large rooms and
few exits. But Canevari said the
store's size is not an issue, and she
.makes sure there are enough staff
members to cover the entire store.
"Customer service is the
best deterrent against
shoplifting."
Sandy Canevari
co-manager of Victoria's Secret at
the Oaks Mall

Canevari placed importance
on the layout of her store, which
leaves generous space around
product displays. That way, shop-
lifters have fewer places to hide
and are easier to detect, she said.
Candice Gray, assistant man-
ager at Claire's at the Oaks Mall,
said her store follows similar
procedures. With a huge selection
of small items, including jewelry
and other trinkets, it seems like a
prime target for shoplifters.
Gray said that shoplifting isn't
a huge problem. An angled mir-


ror that runs around the upper
four walls of the store provides a
top-down view of the racks from
anywhere in the store, she said.
The layout of the store plays
an important role here as well.
Merchandise is arranged so that
items that are smaller or more
expensive are placed closer to the
cash register.
Though shoplifting is not a
significant problem at Claire's,
the company is very serious about
prosecuting shoplifters.
"People who get caught go
through the whole process," she
said. "It doesn't matter if it's 25
cents or a dollar."
Canevari, who has worked
in retail for more than 15 years,
said that shoplifting will probably
continue to be a problem despite
improvements.
"A lot of companies, already do
a good job of preventing shoplift-
ing," she said. "But there's only so
much you can do without step-
ping on toes you have to know
when to cross the line."

Apathy attributed to misunderstanding voter impact, dislike of politics


VOTE, from page 1

Citizens who don't vote or come to City
Commission meetings tacitly consent to all deci-
sions that are made, he said.
Recently, a vocal group of Gainesville ho-
meowners advocated stricter enforcement of a
city ordinance that limits the number of unre-
lated people who can live in a house to three.
These residents have also successfully pushed
for harsher penalties for noise violations.
Although the fines are
Elections directed at landlords, they're
{':. passed on to students in the
form of higher rent.
The proposition has inspired some student
response, Braddy said. But the reactionary at-
titudes of Gainesville students are unlikely to
yield results.
"They wait until after something is on the
table and is about to be passed before they say,
'Oh my gosh,' and then react to it," he said.
UF Student Government Lobby Coordinator
Jason Lutin set a goal to register 2,000 students
to vote in the upcoming state and local elec-
tions. He passed out registration forms, made
speeches in Student Government meetings and
talked to students and politicians.
After two months, he had registered only 20
voters.
"We could have more influence than a mul-
timillion-dollar company," Lutin said of UF
students.
Lutin, who works with SG to lobby legisla-
tors on behalf of students, flew to Washington,
D.C., with two other SG executives to meet with
members of Congress about rising interest rates,
among other things. Interest rates affect stu-
dents who take out loans to pay for school.
Lutin said he's often frustrated because his
requests are overlooked in favor of initiatives for
issues that involve.Medicaid or Social Security.


"Other issues are addressed first, and educa-
tion is put on the back burner," Lutin said.
Tom Lee, the president of the Florida Senate,
disagrees.
"Education is a high priority whether stu-
dents vote or not," he said. "It transcends every
voting bloc."
Florida's quality of education is a priority
for everybody because it affects the number of
people and the number of businesses that move
to Florida, he said.
"Your largest corporations in Florida are
screaming out for a well-educated workforce at
all levels of skilled labor," Lee said.
Lee understands the political apathy of many
young people because he used to dislike politics
and politicians, he said. As a young man, he
said, he didn't realize the impact of govern-
ments and politicians on the lives of all citizens.
"Education is a high priority whether
students vote or not. It transcends
every voting bloc."
Tom Lee
Florida Senate president

"Somietimes (young people) lack an under-
standing that comes with time of the connection
between who you elect and the decisions that
can come out of your government," Lee said.
UF political science professor David Hedge
said the State University System could use more
funding, but a large increase in student voters
wouldn't necessarily prompt action. The only
way students could change educational policy
is to send a clear signal to politicians as to why
they came out to vote.
"Often that doesn't happen, which is why
half the time politicians come out not sure
what they were voted in for," Hedge said with
a laugh.
An exception, Hedge said, are the periods in


U.S. history when the government instituted a
draft.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, voting
rates for the 18 to 24 age group peaked at 52 per-
cent in 1964 and 1968 when thousands of young
men were drafted to Vietnam.
Voting is an important way to influence de-
cisions of the government, but it's not the only
way, Hedge said. Activist organizations and
student lobbyists can also effect change.
Christal Goodison, a member of the
League of Women Voters of Alachua County/
Gainesville, aims to change youngsters' political
apathy by creating flexible and low-commitment
opportunities for activism.

"It used to be either you had a lot of responsi-
bility or none at all," she said.
The most important step for any person who
wants to be involved in the government or com-
munity, Goodison said, is to attend meetings and
events. Goodison's bumper bears a sticker that
reads: "The world is run by those who show
up.
The reason young people neglect the polls and
the political community is a matter of debate.
Goodison suggested that other priorities, such
as classes and football games, distract students
from voting.
Lee said a lack of understanding about the
impact of politicians deters potential voters.
And Braddy said young people just don't
regard voting with the reverence in which it was
once held by the older generation.
Daniel Sanmiguel, a UF political science
sophomore from Miami, cites a fourth reason. He
doesn't vote in local elections because he is still
registered in his hometown, he said.
He follows the issues vaguely but said none
are important enough to warrant changing his
registration and driving to the polls.
"I'm somewhat concerned about the issues,"
he said. "But it's just not worth the trouble of me
changing my information."

Chump the vote

Hillman's inaction

demands SG response
T hose elections. They just sneak up on you, don't they?
One day you're minding your own business and then
bar! you've got a whole new Congress on your
hands. It would be so much easier for everyone if we set
aside a day for them, once a year. We could call it "Election
Day."
What's that? We already have one? And it's always on the
same day -- the Tuesday between Nov. 2 and Nov. 8 going
all the way back to 1845? Wow. We guess you'd have to be
pretty thick to miss it, then.
Unfortunately, that's exactly what Hannah Hillman, di-
rector of Student Government's Chomp the Vote program,
did this year. She was supposed to hand out voter registra-
tion forms, bring candidates to campus forums and do ev-
erything in her power to get students into voting booths next
week. But it must have slipped her mind. Whoops!
Now Hillman says she wants to focus on next spring's
local races. That's fine, but we're electing a governor, a sena-
tor, two U.S. representatives and a state attorney general in
six days. Bringing the town dog catcher to Turlington Plaza
won't make up for botching this year's elections.
That's why Hillman should step down either that or
Student Body Vice President Arturo Armand should fire her.
This Fall, the Swamp Party talked a good game about bring-
ing accountability to SG. Now it's time to follow through.
It's not enough for Hillman to say she'll do better next
time. She botched her job completely. Fell asleep at the
switch. Failed to do well, anything.'And if that's not a fir-
ing offense, what is?
Besides, Chomp the Vote is one of the few things SG does
that really matters. Next spring's elections, all jokes aside, are
important too. Given her track record, why should students
trust Hillman to do her job in March?

Arguments are good, but don't get crazy


H ear ye, hear ye! At
6:30 on Thursday
night, the Alligator
will host a town hall forum
in Gannett Auditorium
- that's 1074 Weimer Hall,
if you're not a journalism
major. -Our editors will be
there to answer questions,
hear complaints and maybe,
just maybe, accept gracious
compliments. Or not.
Special guests include
the Poynter Institute's Keith
Woods, a nationally re-
nowned expert on diversity,
and UF's own Mike Foley,
former executive editor of
the St. Petersburg Times. The
Alligator values its relation-
ship with readers that's
you so please give us
your two cents. Too liberal?
Too conservative? Whatever


you think of us, we want
to hear it. Don't spare our
feelings.
If you can't make it, don't
hesitate to write our ombuds-
man at mjayne@alligator.org
with any criticisms of the
Alligator. That's what he's
there for. Or you could send
a letter to the editor. Just
whip up 150 words and send
it to letters@alligator.org. Be
sure to include your name,
year and major, and we'll
probably run it.
Serving readers is our job
- and if we're not doing it,
it's your job to let us know.
So please come to our town
hall forum Thursday night.
Ask questions. Yell at us. We
need your help to put out
a better paper. 'Hopefully,
we'll see you there.

In case you didn't know, there's a new paper in town:
the Florida Frontier. Think of it like the Alligator, but
aimed at young Republicans.
Personally, I think it's great that we have a paper
with more conservative leanings. Dialogue can't occur
in the absence of opposing views, and we all know
that the Alligator while it does try to be fair and bal-
anced is pretty liberal. Hey, the conservative students
should have something to read that sits well with them,
right?
So I give my sincerest congratulations to the Frontier.
I'll keep reading it, and I hope to see good things come
of it.
That said, there are some things that bother me about
the Frontier. You see, there's a point at which you go
from being conservative to being ridiculous. It's kind of
like going from Bill O'Reilly to, say,'Ann Coulter. Now,
don't get me wrong the principal applies to liberals
as well. Crazies come from all political persuasions.
So what does this have to do with the Florida
Frontier? Well, the November 2006 issue has a section
called "From the Lips of the Left." It contains-ridiculous
quotes from supposed "liberals." My problem is with a
particular quotation from Iranian President Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad saying, "Israel must be wiped off the
map."
Umm, I could've sworn the section was called
"From the Lips of the Left." They were right on target
with everyone else, but I think someone must've have
been a little uninformed to call Ahmadinejad a liberal.
I mean, seriously! He's an unstable, hyperconservative
Holocaust-denier who believes he can bring about the
end of the world by starting a nuclear war.


How do you confuse that with
a liberal? Unless, of course, it was
done intentionally.
I certainly hope that's not
true, but you never know these
Daniel Bur s days. Here's what I'm getting at:
Daniel Burrough It's great that UF is diversifying
Dan Demands its news sources, but no paper
etters@alligator.org should degrade itself by simply
trying to senselessly bash the
other side. Constructive criticism
is awesome, but making outlandish connections that
don't exist isn't.
And like I've said, hate-speak goes both ways. There
are some rabid liberals who would say that all conser-
vatives are warmongers who want to loot the earth of
every dime and take over the world.
There are some rabid conservatives who believe all
liberals are immoral pagans who want to kill babies and
turn the world gay. I say it's best that we avoid either of
these extremes.
The Florida Frontier and the Alligator should
avoid making ridiculous claims and accusations just to
make a point, intentional or not. Believe it or not, you
can object without being divisive. We get too much of
that crap from our politicians as is. I'd hate to see the
same thing happen to our newspapers.
But hey, it was the first issue. It could have been
a mistake, for all I know. For my part, I just want UF
students to have reliable and balanced news sources.
We've done well thus far. Let's keep it that way.
Daniel Burroughs is a philosophy freshman. His column
appears on Wednesdays.

Letters to the Editor
Crist's insurance plan a total nightmare
In "Students watch debate, mock can-
didates," Law School Republican Christian
Waugh claimed,, while nursing a vodka tonic,
that Rep. Jim Davis' insurance plan will drive
insurers out of the state. He is clearly confus-
ing Davis with Attorney General Charlie Crist.
It must have been the vodka tonic because
it certainly isn't the plans.
Crist's proposal has been voted on in the
Florida House and rejected by his fellow
Republicans. Lt. Governor Toni Jennings said
it would result in "no insurance." She never
said that about Davis' plan.
William Foster


than zero attacks since Sept. 11, 2001? Besides,
Bruderly told me personally in 2004 that he
waits America to disarm. Should voters trust
him to keep America safe?
Blind Democrats will vote for Bruderly
because of party affiliation, but he's not'even
a credible candidate and we shouldn't vote
for parties anyway. We should vote for people.
I'd rather vote for Steams. He keeps in touch
with the district, brings.home federal dollars,
votes against the president when he's wrong
and votes with him when he's right. That's the
kind of independent leadership we need.

District 6 needs Stearns' independence
In her Monday letter, Jody Hodges said
the voters have a clear choice in next week's
Congressional election. I couldn't agree more.
Rep. Cliff Steams is by far the better candidate
for the 6th Congressional District.
Dave Bruderly, Steams' opponent, says
the government hasn't made us safer against
terrorism. But how much safer can you get


Human error best case against execution
Gerald Liles' Monday column on the
purpose of capital punishment was more
thoughtful than most columns on the subject,
but it was disappointing to see that he utterly
neglected the single most powerful reason for
abolishing the death penalty human error.
Any institution run by human beings will
eventually go awry. In the case of capital
punishment, this means someone who does


not deserve to die will be put to death in the
name of justice. It doesn't matter if we're really
careful or if we have a whole lot of procedural
safeguards sooner or later, whether it's to-
day, next week or 50 years from now, someone
who doesn't deserve it will be executed.
If we're really interested in justice, this is
the worst possible outcome. Fortunately, it
can be easily avoided by simply abolishing
the death penalty. Yes, this means people who
may deserve to die won't but it also guar-
antees that innocent people won't die either. If
that strikes us as a serious moral dilemma, we
aren't thinking dearly.

Lee has needed experience for CFO job
Florida needs a chief financial officer with
experience. On Tuesday, voters will have a
choice between two candidates with immense
differences.
Tom Lee, Florida's Senate president, is
the only candidate with real experience. He's
proven he can cut taxes not by talking
about it, but by doing it. He led the movement


to limit the influence of special interests on our
lawmakers by banning gifts from lobbyists.
Lee also has a proven record of working
with Democrats. In fact, former Commissioner
of Agriculture Bob Crawford, the most recent
Democrat to hold a position in the Florida
Cabinet, endorsed Lee. He's honest, hard-
working and independent the qualities
Florida needs in its chief financial officer.

It's called a 'forward pass,' Coach Meyer
I couldn't agree more with Louis Anastasis'
Tuesday column. The Georgia game was
the second time in two weeks that UF coach
Urban Meyer wasted his best playmakers on
overcautious offensive drives. Apparently, the
playbook goes no deeper than bubble screens
and draw plays.
If UF doesn't start opening up its offense
- and making easy field goals I'll be invit-
ing the team to my house on Dec. 2 to watch
the SEC championship.

UF MEN'S GOLF

UF loses to Aggies,


earns No. 4 finish


By ALDEN GONZALEZ
Alligator Writer

The UF men's golf team's strug-
gles during the last two days in Fort
Worth Texas, weren't enough to
keep the Gators out of the top five in
Collegiate Match Play.
It's UF fifth such finish in five
tournaments this fall.
The Gators concluded the
16-team Collegiate Match Play
Championship in fourth place after
losing their final match to Texas
A&M 4-1 on Tuesday.
Freshman Tyson Alexander (1-2)
recorded his first collegiate win and
the No. 2 Gator's lone victory.
He defeated Matt Van Zandt 3
and 2 in a match he never trailed.
But two of the Gators' undefeat-
ed players went down against the
Aggies in an uncharacteristic day
for UF's usually solid players.
Sophomore Billy Horschel (2-
1-1) lost to Bronson Burgoon in a
decisive 5 and 3 match, while ju-
nior Manuel Villegas (3-1-0) lost to


A STYLE FOR EVERY STORYTM


Martin Piller 3 and 2.
Junior Tyler Brown (0-3) and
sophomore Toby Ragland (1-2-1)
dropped their matches as well.
"We certainly could have played
a little better today, but it was a fun
tournament for us," Coach Buddy
Alexander said. "We had a good
fall, now we just
need to do some
things over the
next few months
to get better."
"The' Gators
entered the
tournament as
Alexander the No. 1 seed
and got off to a fast start. UF de-
feated 16th-seeded Arizona 3-2 on
the first day and then tied Duke
2-2-1 eventually winning the
tiebreaker 30-28.
That was about as good as it got
for the Gators.
They lost to eventual champion
Oklahoma State on Monday 3-1-1
before dropping the third-place
deciding match to Texas A&M.


Coaches pleased with Wynn


FOOT, from page 15

Stan Drayton during the game.
"He said what was on his mind,"
Drayton said. "He wanted the foot-
ball. It wasn't for a selfish reason at
all. That was something we haven't
seen from DeShawn Wynn. We've
been waiting for that from those
guys, for somebody to step up."
The bold move worked.
When UF needed to run out the
cock late, Wynn ran five times for 22
yards on the last drive.
For the game, Wynn carried eight
times for 36 yards.
Wide receivers Percy Harvin and
Andre Caldwell took the bulk of the
first-half handoffs, some between
the tackles, territory normally re-
served for Wynn.



MOTION, from page 15

title game, all Gators fans do is
gripe.
Why isn't the offense scoring
more points?
Why isn't the ball getting thrown
downfield?
Why isn't Tim Tebow throwing
the ball?
"Everybody feels like they know
what's best for the offense," senior
Jemalle Cornelius said. "A lot of
people feel like they've got all the
answers, but it's a part of it when
you come to a place like this, the
expectations, and people want to see
what they want to see.
"That's just a part of being on
the football team; that happened in
high school, that happened in little
league. They always feel like they
know what's best for the team."


"We had a game plan set,".
Drayton said. "We tried to play
into our strengths a little bit, spread
(Georgia) out and get them in some
mismatch situations."
Wynn's ascension back into the
good graces of the coaching staff
coincided with the fall of backup
running back Kestahn Moore.
For the second time in the last
three games, the sophomore fum-
bled in limited action.
"If you have an issue fumbling
the football, then we're going to take
it out of your hands until you get it
corrected," Drayton said.
The Gators can take solace that
behind Wynn, they eked out a win
with a now-scrapped running at-
tack.
"We came away with the vic-
tory," Drayton said, "so something
was done right."


You want to know something?
You don't know what's right,
and neither do I.
The people who do know what's
right are the guys who are paid to
know, the coaching staff.
This isn't the Zook regime, where
problems were deemed "correct-
able" and yet never got fixed.
Believe it or not, Meyer and his
staff do know what they're doing.
They have led a team comprised of
players not tailored to their system
to a 16-4 record during the past two
seasons, a bowl win and five straight
wins over their three biggest rivals.
So back away from the edge of
the cliff, climb off your soapbox and
get down from your message board
pulpit.
Your team is once again relevant
on the national stage.
Maybe you should actually enjoy
it.

Meye looks to Wy fo moe traditional run attack
Meyer looks to, Wynn for more traditional run attack


By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligafor Staff Writer
nzaccardi@alligator.org

Elections are looming, and
Urban Meyer is going conserva-
tive after last week's attempt to
rejuvenate the spread offense.
"I think on Saturday (at
Vanderbilt), you'll see
DeShawn Wynn playing
tailback, a little more tra-
ditional style."
Urban Meyer
UF football coach

That attempt resulted in a lib-
eral, open-minded running game
with wide receivers rushing be-
tween the tackles and tailbacks
waiting until the second half to
touch the ball.
The production failed to im-
press Meyer, so the second-year
UF coach flip-flopped.
"The bye week probably
gave us too much time to sit and
analyze," Meyer said of the two
weeks leading up to the Gators'
21-14 win against Georgia. "I


think on Saturday (at Vanderbilt),
you'll see DeShawn Wynn play-
ing tailback, a little more tradi-
tional style."
\Vynn leads the No. 7
Gators (7-1, 5-1 Southeastern
Conference) with 53 carries for
436 yards.
Though he did not receive a
first-half carry against Georgia,
the senior took Meyer's vow in
stride.
"I always think that's going
to happen every week," said
Wynn, who rushed for back-to-
back 100-yard games earlier this
season before spraining his right
knee against Alabama. "I work
towards that in practice, like I'm
going to get the ball early on and
a lot during the game."
Wynn said he didn't mind
that receivers and quarterbacks
gained extra rushes against
Georgia.
"E\en though ihad no carries,
I was ready for the moment," he
said.

al, Wynn got Ln the tace of both

Hetland to consult expert


By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org

The future of UF's kicking game may rest
with a sports psychologist.
Kicker Chris Hetland, still the starter until
further notice, will try to shake his 1-for-7
slump by consulting with a doctor who spe-
cializes in the mental aspect of such struggles.
"When it's this far into it now it's in his
head," Coach Urban Meyer said. "We have to
get it out of his head."
But Hetland is not about to agree this is the
problem. -
"I'll never say it's in my head," Hetland
said. "Going out there, I feel like I always
have. I feel as confident and comfortable as I
always have. I don't feel any different. I guess
it's what some people call a 'slump.'"
Meyer will continue trying out kickers
Eric Nappy and Jonathan Phillips as well as
Joey Ijjas. The coach said all kickers did well
Tuesday. He will continue evaluating them for


two more days and could possibly make an
announcement Thursday regarding a change.

OFF THE MARKUS: Reserve tailback Markus
Manson has little to no chance of jumping to
No. 2 on the depth chart. Because the Gators
have only so many first-team snaps to distrib-
ute during practice, Manson
has stayed behind DeShawn
Wynn and Kestahn Moore.
"The fall is not the time
Football for tryout camp," Meyer said.
"Spring practice is when you
go earn a position. Markus obviously didn't
have a great spring and great training camp
during the summer."

INJURY UPDATE: Receiver Percy Harvin has
re-aggravated his sprained ankle, but it is
not believed to be serious. Fellow receiver
Dallas Baker was non-contact Tuesday,
as he continues to nurse a sore shoulder.
Meyer said he will be 100 percent against
Vanderbilt.

It's safe, I promise.
The sky isn't falling, the world isn't
rotating in the opposite direction, Ron
Zook hasn't returned.
You'd never know it based on the
talk this week, but the Gators are 7-1,
with only a narrow road loss to a fellow
top-10 team that had been ranked high-
er than UF for almost the entire year.
Raise your hand if you wouldn't
have taken a 7-1 record, a No. 4 BCS
ranking and control of your own des-
tiny in the Southeastern Conference
East.
I can hear the crickets chirping,
because none of you would have ob-
jected.
The problem is that Gators fans
became accustomed to style over
substance while Steve Spurrier was in
,town, and simply winning is no longer
enough.
Fans wax nostalgic for the days
when the Gators could go out and hang
half-a-hundred on Georgia simply be-
cause they were more talented.

Gators to kick off SEC Tournament against Bulldogs


* UF DEFEATED GEORGIA
2-1 FkRLIER THIS YEAR.

By RACHELROBINS
Alligator Writer
rrobins@alligator.org

On paper, the No. 16 UF soccer
team (11-4-4, 7-1-3 Southeastern
ConfrAence) is the best in the
SEC, earning the most points in
conference play (24). Now, the
Gators have to prove it.
UF will play Georgia in the first
round of the SEC Tournament to-
night at 6 in Orange Beach, Ala.
"(Playing well in the) SEC is
a big source of pride for us," UF
coach Becky Burleigh said.
Even though the Gators de-
feated the Bulldogs 2-1 in the reg-
ular season, the match had more
twists and turns than Burleigh's
stomach could handle. This
match won't be as easy, consid-
ering the Gators won't have the
luxury of the Gainesville crowd
in their corer and will be with-
out tri-captain junior Daniela
Sanchez.
Sanchez received. two yel-
low cards equivalent to a
red in UF's match against-
South Carolina on Friday. As a
result, she will have to sit out the
Georgia contest.
S"One of them was for prob-
ably grabbing or- holding, and-


the other one was for pushing (an
opponent) down," Sanchez said.
"I watched the video yesterday,
and I felt like the (referee) did
the right thing. It wasn't smart,


I don't think. Probably, if I could
take it back, I would. I wasn't
purposely trying to hurt her or
hit her or anything; it was just
very slippery out there."


It's not easy replacing a key
midfielder as well as a captain,
but Burleigh is going to try.
"We will probably end up hav-
ing to play some people that may

not have started before but have
played," she said. "So I don't
think it will be a radically differ-
ent lineup, but we will have to do
a little bit of shuffling."
The last time UF and Georgia
met, the Bulldogs scored first
when Megan Tomlinson capital-
ized on a corner kick by Kelly
Whitaker.

"(Playing well in the) SEC
is a big source of pride for
us."
Becky Burleigh
UF soccer coach

After missed opportunities,
it appeared UF would lose, un-
til Megan Kerns took control of
KeLeigh Hudson's 10-yard shot
and made sure it hit the back of
the net.
"We certainly had a hard time
with them here in Gainesville
when they took us to overtime
before we got the win," Burleigh
said. "So I don't think there's go-
ing to be any games that are easy
in the tournament."
If UF gets past Georgia, it will
play the winner of the Vanderbilt-
South Carolina match Friday at
8:30 p.m. A loss to Georgia sends
the Gators back to Gainesville to
await their seeding in the NCAA
Tournament.
