UF ADMINISTRATION

State university board to vote on Machen's plan


By ELIZABETH HILLAKER
Alligator Writer
ehillaker@alligator.org

UF President Bernie Machen's plan to
tack $1,000 a year onto students' tuition
could take its first step toward approval at
today's Board of Governors meeting. The
Board of Governors will be voting for or
against the plan.


Machen's Academic Enhancement
Program, which is the first of its kind in
Florida, aims to bypass state laws that
prevent universities from setting their own
tuition rates. He plans to use the additional
money to hire faculty and advisers.
He will phone from Beijing where he's
promoting UF to international students to
make his proposal to the body that oversees
the state's 11 public universities. He wrote in


an e-mail that he expects
the board to approve his
request. If the program is
accepted, it will head to
the Legislature for final
approval by May.
Board of Governors
Chairwoman Carolyn
Machen Roberts said she'll support
the plan on two conditions. First, the money


must be put toward new advisers and fac-
ulty. Additionally, she said, students who
can't afford the added expense shouldn't be
forced to pay it.
The board will also. consider authoriz-
ing each university to set a technology fee,
which would be an annual charge capped at
$10 per credit hour. The money would go to-
ward campus technology, but the Legislature
must approve the program first.


'F Book' returns to popularity as historical guide to UF


ETHE UF TRADITIONS BOOK
HAS SOLD 900 COPIES.

By LESLEY-ANNE MARKS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Apparently some traditions
never die.
After more than 40 years, the
"F Book" is back and working as
a guide to the Gator Nation. A
mixture of scrapbook and student


guide, the book outlines the basics
of being a student at UE
Although the book was given to
all incoming freshmen during their
Preview sessions this year, more
than 900 copies of the book have
been sold so far.
"Once we put it online, it really
took off," said Brent Fisher, software
manager at the UF Bookstore.
A portion of book sale proceeds
will go to the Student Alumni
Association scholarship fund.

UF Historian Carl Van

The 2006 edition marks the first

Affairs started producing a student
handbook instead.
Inspiration for the original "F

Firefighters in tune with instrumental tradition


* FRIENDS, CO-WORKERS
HONE PIPING SKILLS.

By DREW HARWELL
Alligator Writer
dharwell@alligator.org

J.D. Perryman's face tightened as
he filled his bagpipe with deep, long
breaths.
His fingers squeezed and quiv-
ered from the force he put on the
chanter, the recorder-like piece on
which he played the melody, and a
loud, sustained note bellowed and
bounced off the fire station nearby.
Robin Hendrickson, Perryman's
best friend and teacher, cosed his
eyes and dipped a finger into the
top of the pipes to tune them.
"Ong-ong-ong-onnnnnn," he
sung, helping Perryman find the
note for his bass pipe.
For the two men, this was busi-
ness as usual at the firehouse.
Perryman, 38, works as a fire-
fighter at Gainesville Fire Rescue
Station No. 2 on Archer Road, and
Hendrickson, 50, is a program
manager for Alachua County Fire
Rescue. The two friends have played
bagpipes together for three years.
"If I had to teach anyone, this
would be the guy," Hendrickson
said about Perryman. "A, he loves it.
B, he feels the music."
The friends met in 2003 when
Perryman attended a firefighter's
funeral. For the ceremony's finale,
a. bagpipe rendition of "Amazing


Grace" was played through a boom
box. Perryman wanted to give fu-
nerals the real thing.
He sought out Hendrickson,
who at that time had 10 years of
experience with the bagpipes, and
begged him for instruction.
Three years later, the two are still
practicing and playing as part of the
Honor Guard, which plays for spe-
cial events like the Firefighters Ball
and funerals.
When the two play, they dress in
full Scottish attire, including a Royal
Stewart Tartan kilt and a black mili-
tary tunic.
However, during practice, the
two keep their normal clothes on
in case the station is called for an
emergency.
The two said bagpipes have been
a firefighter tradition ever since Irish
and Scottish immigrants began
running fire brigades in the United
States in the 1800s. The custom still
stands today, although pipers are
much less common.
The two practice at least once a
week whenever Perryman's shift,
24 hours every three days, and
Hendrickson's shift, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Monday through Friday, coincide.
Each practice session consists of
about an hour of practicing without
the bag and about an hour with it.
They explained that tuning the bag-
pipes is the longest and hardest part,
especially in Florida where the heat
and humidity can make the pipes
unstable.
Perryman, an avid musician, still


has problems with the bagpipes af- noise the instrument produces, it," Feyman said. That's why
ter three years of practice. "He walks around playing his practice it together."
---. T 1,


Heres a famous quote: It
takes seven years to make a piper,"
Hendrickson said. "Piping's really a
pain in the its really difficult."
Friends of the pair can attest
to the difficulty of the bagpipes.
They'velistened to hours of the loud


lnute Ior Iwuris oni eni, sL lirL-
fighter Rusty Barrett as he prepared
the station's dinner of salad, steak
and buttered potatoes. "We make
some snide jokes, like, 'Here comes
that piccolo player.'"

FPerryman sacu on is
a very strict teacher. Once a lesson
is mastered, Hendrickson quickly
moves on to another part.
"The second he knows anything,
I try and destroy him so he doesn't
get a fat head," Hendrickson said.

SEC championship game tickets on sale Monday


SOME ARE UPSET WITH
UF'S TICKET ALLOTMENT.

By LISA GILL
Alligator Contributing Writer

On Monday, a blood-pumping,
heart-pounding, sweat-pouring,
reach-for-the-finish battle of the in-
dex fingers will begin at 6 p.m.
At that time, UF students with
credit cards in hand can order tick-
ets to see'the Gators play in the 2006


Southeastern Conference Football
Championship game or attempt
to do so. Only about 1,500 student
tickets will be available.
According to student ticket
manager Mark Gajda, the tickets
will be sold for $35 each through the
G.A.T.O.R.S. automated ticket-sales
phone system.
Students should be prepared to
compete with about 35,000 others
for a ticket, Gajda said.
Accommodating 99 people at
once, and taking 2.5 to three minutes


per call, the phone service will sell
all the tickets in about 3.5 hours.
"Its tougher because there are
more people that want to go to a
champion-
:,7 ship game,
especially
when our
team hasn't
been there in
a number of years," Gajda said.
Belinda Luu, an economics
junior, says she wants to go to the
game but hadn't realized so few


student tickets would be sold.
"I think that's kind of ridiculous
because there are 50,000 students at
UF, and not very many people are
going to be able to go," she said.
Patrick Rivas, an economics ju-
nior at UF, agreed.
Rivas said it isn't fair that UF
only gets 1,500 student tickets. There
are almost 50,000 undergraduate
students at UF, compared to the
University of Arkansas' roughly
14,000 undergraduates. So UF
should get a bigger proportion of


student tickets for the championship
game, he said. Rivas said he wants
to buy a ticket but intends to sell it if
he gets one.
"I would go, but no one else is
going to be able to actually get tick-
ets, so I'll probably end up selling it
anyway," Rivas said.
Students, regardless of whether
they are season ticket holders, may
attempt to order one ticket by call-
ing (352) 384-3262 or 1-877-428-6747
from 6 p.m. until the tickets are sold
out.


HEALTH

States move toward mandatory HPV immunizations


By TATIANA.NAVARRO
Alligator Contributing Writer

A human papillomavirus vaccine that also
helps prevent cervical cancer in women may
soon become an immunization requirement
for some school-aged children.
Recently, the Michigan Senate has ap-
proved Gardasil, made by Merck & Co. Inc.,
as a routine immunization for girls entering
the sixth grade. Meanwhile, Florida has yet to
consider making the HPV vaccine mandatory
for schoolchildren.
"Florida has it on its agenda," said Anna
Giuliano, an interdisciplinary oncology pro-
fessor at the University of South Florida.
However, Florida still has to create legis-


nation and build up resources at the Florida
Department of Health before the vaccine
could become mandatory, she said.
"It hasn't been put forward in the
Legislature," Giuliano said.
The main influence on state immunization
laws comes from the Advisory Committee on
Immunization Practices, which consists of 15
experts chosen by the secretary of the U.S.
Department of Health and Human Services.
"They're like an arm for the Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention," said
Sherry Windham, immunizations program
coordinator for the Alachua County Health
Department.
"They'll make recommendations, and
each state takes from that recommendation to


"You will have a lot of resistance
by parents who don't believe their
children will be sexually active."
Sherry Windham
immunizations program coordinator for the
Alachua County Health Department

decide what's mandatory," she said. "It'll take
several years for it to pass through, because
you will-have a lot of resistance by parents
who don't believe their children will be sexu-
ally active."
The Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention estimates that more than 6 million
people in the United States are infected with


HPV every year.
HPV is the most common sexually
transmitted infection in the United States
today, according to the Food and Drug
Administration.
Despite recommendations, the HPV vac-
cine isn't free. Currently, it is available at the
UF Women's Clinic at $120 per shot, and the
procedure requires three shots over a six-
month period. The vaccine is not available at
the Alachua County Health Department.
Whether or not Florida becomes the next
state to approve the vaccine for schoolchil-
dren, Gardasil is still recommended by many
health professionals.
"I definitely plan to acquire this for my 22-
year-old," Windham said.

What election?

White House already

back to its old tricks
Last week, George W Bush held a press conference. He
called the Democrats' election victory "a thumping" and
promised to work with his opponents in Congress "to
find common ground in the next two years." It sounded pretty
good at the time.
Unfortunately, the president's flirtation with bipartisanship
lasted about a week..
On Wednesday, he nominated John Bolton as ambassador to
the United Nations, despite objections from Democrats and
a handful of Republican senators, one of whom said confirming.
Bolton would "fly in the face" of voters' wishes. But Bush didn't
stop there.
He also nominated Kenneth Tomlinson for another term
as chairman of the Broadcasting Board of Governors, which
directs American TV and radio broadcasts overseas. A minor
position, maybe, but Tomlinson doesn't deserve it in 2004, he
used the board's resources to run a private horse-racing opera-
tion out of his office.
That's right. Horse racing. But he's tight with Karl Rove, so
why let a little thing like corruption stand in the way of another
term? -
Believe it or not, it gets worse. When the Senate Judiciary
Committee reconvenes, Bush plans to renominate four judges
the committee rejected earlier this year.
One of them helped the Pentagon finesse its way around
laws prohibiting torture. Another is considered unqualified by
the American Bar Association. And, of course, one of them is a
lobbyist for the energy industry. These aren't just bad judges
- they're awful.
In fact, Republicans on the Judiciary Committee have al-
ready said they won't be confirmed. So what's the point? It
seems Bush is spoiling any chance of effective bipartisan gov-
ernment just for the hell of it.
If this week is any indication of how the White House in-
tends to "find common ground" with Democrats in Congress,
buckle your seat belts. The next two years could be a pretty
bumpy ride.


Research roulette


F or enterprising re-
porters, the College
of Liberal Arts and
Sciences is the gift that keeps
on giving every time it
seems the CLAS debacle
can't get any worse, it does.
The administration is always
standing by with some new
scheme, some new. bungle.
You can set your watch by it.
This week, a member of
the CLAS Assembly con-
firmed what we've long
suspected that UF expects
CLAS departments to offset
budget cuts with corporate
research partnerships. Of
course, there aren't many
to be had for English and
religion, two of the fields hit
hardest by the five-year plan.
That's what worries us.
Chemistry, psychology


and physics are moneymak-
ing departments. They can
rely on patents, research and
other sources of income to
stay afloat. But the humani-
ties English, history, for-
eign languages aren't so
lucky. They need university
funding, and lots of it.
Unfortunately, it seems
a well-rounded liberal arts
education doesn't fit into
UF's research-oriented, sink-
or-swim mentality. That's a
shame, because the humani-
ties are as important now
as they've ever been and
turning UF into a high-class
vocational school would be a
huge mistake.
When administrators talk
about running UF like a busi-
ness, we hope this isn't what
they mean.

Press keeps military from doing its job


he press is an important institution. Those in power
must have the consent of the governed, and the me-
dia keep the governed informed about the accom-
plishments and the dirty secrets of those in charge.
But the system isn't perfect. There are secrets the press
can't find. Also, because of the benefits it gets from a ma-
jor news story, the press may blow things out of propor-
tion for the sake of business.

So you have to use your judgment and decide for
yourself what really matters.
The biggest problem with the press, at least in
America, has to do with war. War is a horrific undertak-
ing in any circumstances, and people don't like to read
about it. They become unhappy with their government
and want the fighting to end.
So military leaders must choose tactics not for effec-
tiveness and efficiency, but for how they'll play in the
papers. It's a lose-lose situation they take relatively in-
effective action, and the headlines still aren't that great.
The result is a war that doesn't seem to go anywhere.
The people are angry at the politicians for leading them
into a conflict they see as pointless and interminable
- but they never let the powers that be fight it the right
way in the first place.
In this situation, we're unable to win. And since
Vietnam, the first prolonged war to include a major me-
dia presence, we haven't.
This is our second try at a Gulf War, and while I be-
lieve we should be there, I also believe our leaders are too
scared to do what is necessary to get the job done.
The kind of war we needed would have had a higher
rate of casualties, but would be years shorter, with a
much lower overall death toll and clearly accomplished
goals.


That couldn't happen in mod-
em America, because the path
S. to such a victory is paved with
Gruesome headlines and gory
SS' "pictures that we, the people, can't
stomach.
Patrick Barrett So we vote in new politicians
Grin and Barrett to bring our troops home. Many
letters@alligator.org people have concern only for our
brave soldiers when they make
that kind of decision. But consider
the consequences.
As we leave Iraq which we'll start to do in the next
year we show our enemies we won't fight a war, and
that U.N. sanctions are meaningless. Celebrities and
anti-war activists assure them that we will rein in the
most technologically advanced military, with the most
talented soldiers in the world, because the American
people won't face war.
Bui Tin, the North Vietnamese officer who accepted
surrender from South Vietnam, said: "Every day our
leadership would ... follow the growth of the American
anti-war movement. Visits to Hanoi (by American activ-
ists) gave us confidence that we should hold on in the
face of battlefield reverses. We were elated when Jane
Fonda ... said at a press conference that she was ashamed
of American actions in the war and that she would strug-
gle along with us."
It may be too late for Iraq, but America will have more
conflicts to face. Think about what's at stake and whether
we're demonstrating strength or vulnerability to
those who would destroy us.

What makes some stories news?


If you ever want to get a roomful of shy journal-
ists to break the ice and start talking, bring up
the topic of news judgment. The process of de-
ciding what's news and what to prioritize in print is
among the most vexing questions facing the media.
While the topic is always fodder for debate, six
guiding principles have been codified into a set of
commandments known as news values.
First, proximity. For the Alligator, this means
covering stories that relate to campus issues at UE.
Readers often ask, "Why does the Alligator ignore
issues facing East Gainesville?" The answer is that
the Alligator's focus is on the lives of students.
Next, timeliness. Breaking news or "hard news"
better be in the paper the morning after it happens,
because it spoils fast. But sometimes the Alligator
doesn't hear about a story until too late. On other
occasions, stories competing for the same limited
space overshadow a scoop.
Then there's prominence. Alligator reporters
will pat you on the back for the four touchdowns
you threw in your flag football game but the
Sports page will actually write about UF quarter-
back Chris Leak's four.
Let's not forget impact. If your landlord raises
your rent, the Alligator will sympathize with you.
But if it's a trend across Gainesville, the Classifieds
won't be the only section discussing it.
Of course, controversy is important too. The me-
dia love it. In a recent story, the Alligator incorrectly
reported that no one showed up to protest Andrew
Card's speech at the Stephen C. O'Connell Center.
The College Democrats had staged a protest and-
were understandably upset by the omission. The
mistake was unintentional no red-blooded re-
porter would fail to capitalize on a good story.
Finally, there's unusualness. Dogs bite people


S every day, but an old adage
says, "When a man bites a
dog, that is news." -
Typically, the more
aspects of news value a
story has, the more likely
Mike Jayne it is to get printed. Take the
Ombudsman Danny Rolling coverage,
mjayne@alligator.org for example. It had all six.
There are also out-
side pressures that affect
news judgment. The Alligator, like most newspa-
pers, aims to inform and entertain its audience.
Generally, that means publishing what the public
wants to read. But the Alligator can't shirk respon-
sibility for occasionally telling readers what they
should care about.
Take the Gainesville City Commission's recent
hikes of landlord permit fees. The cost increase is
likely to trickle down to student renters, so it's an
important story. It's not sexy, but who else is going
to tell UF students what they need to know?
While the Alligator often sets the agenda for
what is news, it also reacts to what the public con-
siders news.
After business lecturer John Hall behaved er-
ratically during a class, some readers likened the
Alligator's coverage of the story to kicking a man
while he was down. But the buzz started on Web
sites like CollegeHumor.com and YouTube.com be-
fore the Alligator jumped on the bandwagon.
News judgment is an important question at
any newspaper. Its an ongoing challenge at the
Alligator, so you can expect to hear more about it
from me in the future.
Mike Jayne is a journalism and political science
senior. His column appears as needed.


Sto
Don't sweat the swear words
This is a response to Jonathan
Keenan's Tuesday letter regarding
the use of profanity in the Florida
Players' production of "Proof."
As the director of this produc-
tion, I'd first like to thank Keenan
for his feedback. However, I'd also
like to point out that "Proof" is
a Pulitzer Prize-winning play. It
also happens to be copyrighted,
like most published works, which
prevents the alteration of the script
in any manner.
I understand that Keenan was
offended by the profanity in the
production, which the playwright
employs selectively and with
purpose. My only regret is that he

let a few "bad words" corrupt his
perception of the work.

UF plays its role in outreach
Although Daniel Burroughs'
Wednesday column was well-
intentioned, he seemed to have
forgotten the reason community
colleges were created in the first
place. They're designed to be an
outreach to the.community, to help
educate and train those who do


not attend a major university.
Believe SFCC is doing a fine job
of reaching out to East Gainesville.
Likewise, UF is holding up its end
of the bargain by researching and
creating community leaders.

Krishnas have an agenda, too
Many people seem to detest
Joey Johnsen, who is often com-
pared negatively to UF's
Hare Krishnas. But few seem to
know that the Krishnas are just
as capable as Johnsen of ruining
people's afternoons with conver-
sion tactics of their own.
A good friend of mine was
once cornered by a Krishna who
attempted to convert her. His
method wasn't as obvious as
Johnsen's, but was still personally
invasive and downright creepy.
So complairi about Johnsen all
you want you have freedom of
speech just as much as he does.
But don't pit him as the bad guy
against' the good-guy Krishnas,
because they both have their own
devices and agendas.

STUDY ABROAD

Students seek unique spots


By JESSICA MCHUGH
Alligator Contributing Writer
Deciding what to pack can
be a mystery. For just a few
short months, Stephanie David
will travel the countries of
South America, and she knows
she probably won't need her fa-
vorite red shoes or her dosetful
of clothing, because some days
she will have to forfeit showers
and ocean clothes to experience
another way oflife.
David, a family, youth and
community sciences junior,
is just one of many students-
to study abroad in "nontradi-
tional" countries, such as those
in Latin America and Asia.
"I want to get back to the
heart of what studying abroad
is all about," David said. "Not
that America is the same
as Europe. I feel that South
America is more challenging
because it's so different."
More American students


like David are studying abroad
for academic credit.
There has been a 144 per-
cent increase during the past
decade, according to Open
Doors 2006, an annual report
on international education re-
leased Monday.
"I want to get back
to the heart of what
studying abroad is all
about."
Stephanie David
UFjunior

The most popular destina-
tions for UF students include
Italy, the United Kingdom,
France and Spain. -
While the favored des-
tinations are European, the
demand for nontraditional
countries has increased in re-
cent years.
Students studying in Latin
America constitute 14 percent


of students nationwide study-
ing abroad, with Argentina
seeing the largest increase
- 53 percent, according to
Open Doors.
Study abroad in Latin
American countries is definite-
ly a trend, said Angela Grindal,
a UF study abroad adviser.
"Students go because there
is a need for volunteers, for so-
daljustice studies and for med-
ical studies in poor countries,"
she said. "Also, the cost is less
expensive to go to Argentina
than Western Europe."
Grindal said she estimates
that about 50 percent of
students studying in Latin
America have already been to
Western Europe.
Kirsten Eller, a UF study
abroad adviser, said more
people are also studying in
Asia than in the past.
"People are realizing the
business purpose." she said.
"Chinese is spoken by a billion
people."

Governor supports bioscience at UF


AIDS speech to

By ASHLEY BRUNTON
Alligator Contributing Writer
More than 100,000 .cases have been reported in
Florida. That's not the number of cases of Gator
fever, but something more serious AIDS:
AIDS Address 2006, a UF event designed to
inform students, faculty, health practi-
Sn tioners andthe public about prevention
Campus programs, will be held today.
"Florida is consistently ranked in
the top three states with new cases and
overall cases of AIDS," said Brian Dodge, an assis-
tant professor of public health programs.
The address, sponsored by the College of Public
Health and Health Professions, will be held at 1 p.m.
in Room7G301 of the HPNP Complex.
Gina Wingood, associate professor at the Emory
University Rollins School of Public Health and the
Emory Center for AIDS Research, will speak.
Wingood's research focuses on prevention pro-
grams.
Dodge said Wingood will discuss the highest-
ranking subgroup of HIV and AIDS cases: black
women.


BUSH, from page 1


interview after the opening, he noted several achieve-
ments the state Legislature supported in the field of
bioscience. It granted $45 million to "advance research
agendas at UF and FSU," he said.
Bioscience "puts the state in better shape, and UF is
the centerpiece of that," he said.
Dr. Doug Barrett, UF's senior vice president for
health affairs, said the new building epitomizes the "es-
sence of collaboration" among scientists.
Bush said research initiatives need to continue "so
Florida becomes the envy of the states."
"It looks really cool," he said.
Earlier that afternoon, at the 2006 BioFlorida


Conference at the UF Hilton, Bush discussed the impor-
tance of the bioscience industry in Florida. He addressed
more than 400 public officials and representatives from
bioscience companies, who dined on sirloin steak and
Key lime pie before Bush spoke.
I During his speech, Bush said he
was proud of the great successes UF
S" had achieved in biotechnology. That
research field uses biology to manu-
Sfacture drugs or other products.
He said most universities tend
to "toot their horn louder than they
Bush need, but UF doesn't toot their horn
loud enough."
"UF is a world-class institution and it's time to let the
rest of the world know it," he said.


Survey method limited by technology


SURVEY, from page 1

UF Survey Research Center, before
distributing the surveys to make sure
their statements were as unbiased and
neutral as possible.
Richards said a way to avoid bias
in the surveys is by using a "split
sample." In a split sample, half of the
surveys would be distributed with the
fact list and half would not.
Kaufer said he originally planned
to distribute the surveys using a split
sample, but because of limitations
with the online software used for the

cated on both sides. There is
no education that is done in
a biased way."

surveys, he was unable to.
"While we did include (the fact
paragraph), and we recognize there
might be a little bias, we tried to in-
clude statements about tuition just to
be able to provide some basic infor-
mation about tuition rates and create


a neutral paragraph," he said.
Boyles said the statements are
meant to educate students by pro-
viding "pieces on each side of the
argument about tuition."
"Students need to be educated
on both sides," he said. "There is no
education that is done in a biased
way."
Boyles said the surveys allow stu-
dents to voice their opinions on what
they hope to gain from UF
"It's their scholarship or money,"
he said. "We're really giving them
an opportunity to come to the table
and tell us what they want out of this
university."

Dating game wastes time


Sfew weeks ago, I decided to be-
come asexual. Not asexual in the
sense that I'd be able to regener-
ate a limb if I were to get in some
freak accident. Ase.ual in the sense that
I'mno longer interesting m\seltf m the op-
posite sex- or an\ 5se for that matter
I used to be e\trtmelv picky. I had
a mental checklist of qualities I desired
in my perfect male. I wanted him to be
intelligent, to be somewhat athletic and
to enjoy good music. He had
to read newspapers and lots Kelly
of books, and he had to like na-
ture. He wouldn't have to buy
me things, but he would have
to hold doors open.
But then, I suddenly began
to find everyone attractive.
I analyzed people in class,
people who came into the res-
taurant where I work and even friends
of friends on Facebook.com to see if they
would be right for me.
A few months ago I went on a date.
The guy wasn't very impressive. He
offered no ideas on where to go for din-
ner, he liked the band Disturbed and his
conversation was bland. At the end of the
night, however, I was still hoping he'd


I


kiss me to somehow save the pathetic date
and change how I felt about him. Well, he
kissed me but it didn't help at all.
One day I spotted someone. An over-
sized blackhat covered his shaggy brown
hair and scruttv beard. He wore a dirty-
looking. roi al-blue polo shirt and black
pants. I found nm\ self adnunng his avant-
garde style and lack ot care for hygiene.
.As he picked up a pile of bricks and car-
ned them to where the LIF Physical Plant
workers were building some-
ereikas thing, I thought, "Aww, that's
nice. He's helping them."
Then I realized that he
was indeed a Physical Plant
worker and that he looked
about 47. There's nothing
wrong with middle-aged day
.laborers, but that's just not the
right demographic for a 19-
year-old college student.
Those events were just two in a series
of unfortunate, relationship-related events
that culminated in my rebirth as an asex-
ual being. Now when I meet a guy, I don't
bother to figure out whether he would be
right for me. I've wasted too much energy
trying to decipher what guys think about
me. Now, finally, I'm comfortable.

SThe old saying goes. "One person's trash
is another person's treasure." But Alachua
County Conumssioners, the county's Office
of Waste Altemabves and the Florida
NMuseum of Natural His-tor) venture to say,
"Why can'tit be both?"
The eighth annual recycled art compe-
tition "Trashformations" will take place
through Nov. 30 at the Florida Museum of
Natural History.
For the contest, students in middle school,
high school or college are invited to transform
their trash into artwork by using any recycla-
ble items and their own.creativity.
Judging for each category is based on
creative expression and the innovative use of
recyclable materials. The entries must be com-
posed of at least 70 percent reused or recycled
items. Materials can include things like plastic
bottles, PVC, cardboard, burlap, broken tiles,
steel, copper wire and aluminum cans.
"No two entries are ever the same," said


Melissa Palmer, an Alachua County waste
alternatives specialist and the event's coordi-
nator. "We have had everything from banana
trees to angels to mosaic busts in the past."
The judging, which will take place tomor-
row morning, is mainly conducted by art pro-
fessors, museum curators, art appraisers and
gallery owners. An awards ceremony for the
winners, their friends and their teachers will
be held Friday from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
About 40 students enter the competition
each year, but more are expected to enter this
year because it is the first year that middle
schoolers can compete.
"I think this program is an excellent way
for students and the public to see the value
in trash, while giving the students a great op-
portunity to showcase their artistic talent in
the community using nontraditional materi-
als," said Palmer.
Although the deadline for submissions
has already passed for this year, the com-
petition is still an excellent opportunity for
interested students and friends to marvel at
the beauty of trash as it becomes art.

Friends end UF drama careers on musical high note


By JESSICA PONN
Avenue Contributing Writer

Kevin Brown,Matthew Wharton
and Ben Whitmore are three best
friends who have made a routine
out of greeting each other with
death threats and middle fingers.
They say it's all in good humor.
Such a unique dynamic has
worked well for the actors both
on and off the stage. The UF seniors
all have leading roles in "A Funny
Thing Happened on the Way to the
Forum," a musical presented by the


UF School of Theatre and Dance.
"We have always clicked as a
group of three," Whitmore said.
"We're almost like family."
SThe guys, who refer to them-
selves as the Jam Fam after their
band, FolkJam 99!, have been
roommates since their sophomore
years.
The friends have become so
close and shared so many laughs,
it's sometimes difficult to keep a
straight face on stage, Brown said.
However, in spite of the constant
joking, this show has a somber ele-


ment. For the three friends, this will
be their last musical at UF.
Because finding, work in the
field of acting is always uncertain,
this show could in fact be the room-
mates' last musical ever.
"This will be kind
Local of the end of an era,"
Theater Whitmore said.
He expects
Sunday's curtain call
to be emotional.
Brown said that if upcoming
auditions for several theater com-
panies don't go well, he will likely


"go to New York and live on a wing
and a prayer."
Whitmore said he too will prob-
ably do "the starving actor thing
for awhile."
Fortunately for the guys, what
could potentially be their last mu-
sical is also 'one of their favorite
shows.
"This is the best-written farce of
any musical," Brown said. "It's also
one of the best books ever made."
Brown, Wharton and Whitmore
invested a tremendous amount of
time in preparing for their roles.


The show will appeal to all au-
diences, Brown predicted.
"I think this is a really good
introductory musical for people
who aren't usually into musicals,"
he said.
With elements of comedy, love,
rivalry and tragedy, "it really does
have everything," he added.
The show will be playing at the
Constans Theatre at 8 p.m. today
through Saturday and at 2 p.m.
Sunday. For tickets and informa-
tion call the University Box Office
at (352) 392-1653.

Cursive performs at UF, promotes religion-themed album


By DAVID LOW
Avenue Writer

Omaha, Nebraska. It's the largest
city in the Cornhusker State, a major
supplier of steaks and the home of
the College World Series of baseball.
It seems an unlikely birthplace for
some of the biggest names in indie
music.
Cursive is just one band that's
come out of Omaha it stands
among the likes of Bright Eyes and
The Faint, among others.


But Cursive has certainly seen
its fair share of the road, bringing its
brand of thematic indie rock all over
the nation and abroad.
Well into their fourth month of
touringsupporting "Happy Hollow,"
Cursive will come to Gainesville for
a free show at the Reitz Union Rion
Ballroom on Tuesday.
"Right now we're in Atlanta,"
said bassist Matt Maginn. "It's a
lot warmer than Omaha, so we're
happy"

"Before it was more about peo-

but in this record it's more about a
person discussing relationships with
existence and spirituality and other
things in themselves," Maginn said.
"It's still personal, but it's just not in
the common interpersonal way."
"We've been to Gainesville
maybe five times, six times," Maginn
said. "We usually play Common
Grounds, and the crowd is usually

One-man band tojamat I a r

One-man band to jam at UF C l I en 0 & I


By KELLY SEREIKAS
Avenue Writer

Get ready to feel the grass between
your toes and dance through a night of
musical wonderment, because one-man
jam band Keller Williams is coming to
UF on Friday.
Mahle sure not to, confuse him with
Keller Williams the realty group, or
Kellen Williams the overhyped guitarist
known for his acoustic Ludacris cover
songs.
Williams' latest album, "Grass," is
different from his others. It is a bluegrass
album he created with friends Larry and
Jenny Keel. He said bluegrass and the
music he plays live are
Students an

mals," so he is continuing hungry.The

Williams is known for Keller V
the diversity of his musi- bluegra
cal skills, which range
from an ability to mimic
the flugelhorn vocally to a talent for
making one guitar sound like 20 with his
electronic looping skills.
"It'll have lots of instruments, lots of
electronics, lots of attention deficit disor-
der stuff," Williams said of the show.
He chooses his set list from all of the
songs from his 10-year career. He tries
not to duplicate shows in the same city.
He also never repeats a set two nights in
a row for what he called "repeat offend-
ers."
"College campuses often offer a hap-
pier, more energetic vibe because of the
studerfts," Williams said.
He explained that performing at a
university is different from playing at
other venues. He said that when he pulls
up to a college campus, six or seven smil-
ing students are waiting, eager to move


equipment a sharp contrast to the
"grumpy, old union workers" that often
welcome him at other venues.
"Students are young and hungry,"
Williams said. "They want their minds
fed with different beats and things."
That's one of the reasons Student
Government Productions chairman
Robbie Moreno chose Williams to play at
UF for $12,000.
Everyone respects a one-man band,
and both the students and the com-
munity can appreciate Keller's music,
Moreno said.
"Anyone who likes music can find
something they like in Keller's music,"
Moreno said.
Ten years ago, Williams

/illiams and has more free time
ss artist to-work on his music and
spend time with his family.
Williams said that his -qual-
ity of life is much better now.
Williams won't be sticking with the
bluegrass theme for his next album,
"Dream," due to be released Feb. 6.
He has been working on "Dream" for
three years and is excited to release it.
Many of Williams' favorite artists,
including Bob Weir, Bela Fleck and Jeff
Sykes, will be joining him on the record.
Last month, SGP brought fellow jam
band The String Cheese Incident to cam-
pus. Williams opened for them during
the beginning of his career.
Moreno said that the hippie vibe of
the shows so far this year is coincidental
and that there is much diversity to come.
He hopes to get as many students as pos-

ETHE GATORS HAVE COMMIT-
TED 56 TURNOVERS IN THREE
GAMES THIS SEASON.

By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

The number of turnovers in
each game reads like numbers on
a lottery ticket.
22.14. 20.
That's 56 turnovers the UF
women's basketball team has
committed through its first three
games, including its opening
exhibition loss to Team adidas/
Premier Players.
While some mistakes are ex-
pected from a team featuring
five freshmen and four ,sopho-
mores, sloppy play will not cut
it if the Gators anticipate earning
consecutive trips to the NCAA
Tournament for the first time since
2002.
Coach Carolyn Peck said that
after facing a zone defense from
North Florida, the Gators strug-
gled in the first half against the
man-to-man defense that Xavier
brought.
She said her team is learning
when players should cut and
when to pitch the ball back out-
side to avoid turnovers from er-
rant passes.
In order to improve the Gators'
focus and turnover issues, guard
Sha Brooks said that more inten-


sity is needed.
"It is a transition (for the fresh-
men)," Brooks said. "Of course
we're going to have some games
where we don't have intensity, but
everybody has to'be able to pick
each other up. Intensity for us is
very important because if one per-
son is hyped and ready to play, it
rubs off on everyone else."

FEROCIOUS DEPREE: Before the
season started, junior Depree
Bowden knew she'd be counted
on for her -defensive abilities.
After two games, she is already
meeting expectations.
"[Bowden] was all over
the floor. We've got to get
everybody playing with that
intensity all the time."
Carolyn Peck
UF women's basketball coach

Against UNF and Xavier,
Bowden totaled eight steals. She
is the Gators' third-leading re-
bounder at four per game.
Bowden was a starter for the
Gators last year until she was.
replaced by Brooks early in the
season.
Even though she mainly has
been lauded as a defensive stop-
per, she's contributed offensively
with 12 points per contest, second
best for UF.
Bowden has shown little trepi-

dation in getting after the ball, as
she has already collected several
floor burs this year.
"She was all over the floor,"
Peck said. "We've got to get every-
body playing with that intensity
all the time."
Bowden tries to up the energy
level every time she's out on the
court.
"I'm just trying to bring up as
much energy as I can," she said.
"Anything I can do to just get
pumped up because when we get
pumped up, we get ready to play.
And we need that every game."

INJURY UPDATES: Freshman
Jennifer Mossor is still recover-
ing from a stress fracture in her
left foot, but Peck said Monday
that Mossor is out of her boot and
can now "do some things on the
court." -
Before the injury, Mossor was
the leading candidate for starting
point guard.
Senior Briana Phillips also
tweaked her back in the second
half against Xavier but should
play this weekend in the Timeout
for HIV/AIDS Classic.
Peck also said freshman LaToya
Bullard, who has dealt with nag-
ging issues with her back and
hamstring, is day-to-day. Bullard
had a strong collegiate debut last
weekend as she helped the Gators
run a faster-paced offense. Bullard
is averaging 6.5.points, two steals
and 20.5 minutes per game.

Bowden receives


payout to bow out


* BOOSTERS GAVE THE
FIRED COACH $537,500.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

TALLAHASSEE Florida
State offensive coordinator Jeff
Bowden received a $537,500 pay-
off from the school's boosters to
resign following several seasons
of declining production.
The settlement was revealed
Wednesday when the school re-
leased a copy of the agreement
Bowden's attorneys reached with
the university and its boosters.
The resignation takes effect Nov.
26, a day after the season finale
against UF.
Bowden youngest son of
Coach Bobby Bowden retains
his present $141,000 salary until
his contract expires next August.
He then will receive annual pay-
ments of $107,500 until August
2012.
The agreement was signed
by Jeff Bowden. Also signing
it was Andy Miller, president
of Seminole Boosters, Inc., FSU
president T.K. Wetherell and


Athletic Director Dave Hart Jr.
Wetherell and Hart would not
comment.
"Its not like we stand on the
sideline on these things," Miller
said. "What we try to do is pro-
vide the university, the people in
charge of these decisions, with
the resources to make the calls
they need to make."
"It's just amazing. When
things go wrong, the first
thing they blame is the
offensive coordinator."
Bobby Bowden
Florida State football coach

The agreement does not pre-
clude Jeff Bowden from getting
another job. He will still receive
biweekly payments of $4,135. It
does preclude Bowden from su-
ing the school.
"It's just amazing," Bobby
Bowden said Wednesday. "When
things go wrong, the first thing
they blame is the offensive coor-
dinator. That's kind of the game
we Americans play."

SPIKES. from page 24

When Siler w-a- a freshman in 2004, he per-
formed admirably m place of an injured Channing
Crowder; eventually being named the top fresh-
man in the Southeastern Conference.
Spikes hasn't played nearly enough to garer
that kind of acclaim this year, but he has dra-wn
rave reviews from the coaching staff, most notably
for his ability to carry his 6-foot-3, 240-pound frame
and still be extremely agile.

UF defensive tackle Steven
Harris: Meyer suspended Harris
from the season opener for violating
team rules. Meyer also dismissed
Harris from most of spring practice

said. "He does a good job of carrying his weight
and he's a load in there."
Spikes. who called all of his family and friends
thinking he'd be starting last
Gators week, is just happy to get his
Linebackers shot.
S"They always say, 'Be ac-
countable for your position,'" Spikes said. "I feel
like whenever my number is called, I'm going to
get in and get the job done as Siler would do. I fed

marijuana twice and was suspended

off the team in a span of six days.
UF wide receiver Nyan Boateng:
Last week, a female UF student
stabbed Boateng, according to a
police report. Though the receiver
denied the daim, he was indefinitely
suspended from team activities.
Meyer said Boateng would return

From the outside, it appears that
the players are mostly to blame, but
don't let Meyer off the hook
Meyer said he doesn't live in a
sheltered world' and knows what's
going on.
But he has failed to nip this in



LACOSTE


the bud. Instead, issues lingered and
players made more poor decisions
and received the same consequences
- short suspensions for first-timers.
Yet fans still adore Meyer. In an
alligatorSports.org poll last weekend,
73 percent of voters said they would
rather have Meyer coaching UF than
Steve Spurrier.
So why does Meyer still have a
through-the-roof approval rating'
At 9-1, the Gators have clinched
. a berth in the SEC title game for the
first time since 2000.
In another first since Spurrier left,
the Gators will be m the BCS hunt
after Thanksgiving.
In other words, it doesn't mean a
thing if they still get that champion-
ship ring.

Moss suspended for game against Western Carolina


Tim Caaey Alligator Statf
UF junior defensive end Jarvis Moss pressures Central Florida quarterback Steven Moffett. Moss
was suspended for the Western Carolina game for an undisclosed violation of team policy.


By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Staff Writer
bjones@alligator.org

UF coach Urban Meyer announced
Wednesday that starting defensive
end Jarvis Moss has been suspended
for Saturday's game against Western
Carolina for an undisclosed violation
of team policy.
"He's suspended for this game,"
Meyer said. "If he does everything
right, he'll be back (for the Florida
State game)."
Meyer refused to comment on why
Moss was suspended but said he was
disappointed with the lineman's deci-
sion-making.
"You really challenge and question
how that can happen at this time of
year," Meyer said.
Moss blocked a potential game-
winning 48-yard field goal by South
Carolina's Ryan Succop on Saturday.
Sophomore Derrick Harvey will
likely take over for Moss at defensive
end, with senior Ray McDonald at the
other end spot. Seniors Joe Cohen and
Steven Harris will probably start at
defensive tackle.
Two weeks ago, defensive tackle
Marcus Thomas was dismissed from
the team.
Last Sunday, Meyer talked about


how proud he was of Moss.
"He had a lot of issues that proba-
bly won't ever be told unless he wants
to tell them," Meyer said in his weekly
teleconference. "He's a guy I like to
have around my family. He's a guy I
like to have in front of my defense. I
couldn't say that a year and a half ago.
He's a guy that had a lot of issues.
"He's suspended for this
game. If he does everything
right, he'll be back (for the
Florida State game)."
Urban Meyer
UF football coach

"I'm awfully proud he's on my
team, and he's going to be a great suc-
cess in life. He not only turned around
his football (career), but his life."

NO-BRAINER: With the Gators' depth
issues on the defensive line as of late,
Meyer was toying recently with pull-
ing the redshirt of freshman defensive
tackle Lawrence Marsh.
A broken right hand that Marsh
suffered on Tuesday made that deci-
sion a lot easier.
"It's almost for sure he's going to
redshirt now," Meyer said.


Spikes making statement


* THE FRESHMAN MAY START
AGAINST WESTERN CAROLINA.

By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
dtreat@alligator.org

He announced his arrival as subtly as a
freight train pulls into the station. And for
the Southern Miss player who was in his
path, it likely felt like he'd been hit by one.
With one crushing blow in early
September, freshman linebacker Brandon
Spikes made it known that he would be
a force on the college scene after being
a top-flight recruit and a U.S. Army All-
American coming out of Shelby, N.C.
"First play boom. Got the tackle."
Spikes said. "And. I hit the guy and
brought-it to him. Coaches kind of liked
that, and the older guys really liked that."
Spikes was limited primarily to special
teams duty through the meat of the Gators'
season, but he has been called on in certain
situations when players were injured or
needed a breather. Most notably, Spikes


came in for junior Brandon Siler against
South Carolina last Saturday after Siler's
knee injury rendered him ineffective.
Spikes recorded three tackles, including
a game-changing tackle for loss on South
Carolina's final possession, as the Gators
held on for a 17-16 win.

up, Spikes might have
to start Saturday against
Western Carolina.
"He did a good job
of going in place of
Siler," UF co-defensive
coordinator Charlie
Spikes Strong said. "The
thing he's done is he's
worked and put himself in that position.
... I feel very comfortable with him starting
Saturday. He understands the system and
knows what we're trying to do."
Spikes' emergence has reminded some
of another Brandon who stepped in to re-
place an experienced linebacker, and that
would be the man he's replacing: Siler.

Wins no excuse for suspensions


Expected to receive UF's weekly written
statement Wednesday.
I expected it to read something like
this: "Due to some issues Jarvis Moss
is dealing with, he will not participate
in Saturday's game against Western
Carolina."
But a two-week string of press releases
concerning suspensions or dismissals looks
to have been snapped.
Still, three days remain for the streak to
continue.
After Wednesday's practice, UF coach
Urban Meyer spoke about the one-game
suspension of Moss, a defensive end, in
terms of the UF program.
"It could be worse," Meyer said. "I can
tell you the names of some schools that are
really struggling. The Gators aren't. The
Gators are going to go get their 10th win
somehow. We're going to get our 10th win
this week."
I could care less about how the Gators

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2006 E ALLIGATOR, 3 State university board to vote on Machen's plan By ELIZABETH HILLAKER Alligator Writer ehillaker@alligator.org UF President Bernie Machen's plan to tack $1,000 a year onto students' tuition could take its first step toward approval at today's Board of Governors meeting. The Board of Governors will be voting for or against the plan. Machen's Academic Enhancement Program, which is the first of its kind in Florida, aims to bypass state laws that prevent universities from setting their own tuition rates. He plans to use the additional money to hire faculty and advisers. He will phone from Beijing -where he's promoting UF to international students -to make his proposal to the body that oversees the state's 11 public universities. He wrote in an e-mail that he expects must be put toward new advisers and facthe board to approve his ulty. Additionally, she said, students who request.

F Book' returns to popularity as historical guide to UF MTHE UF TRADITIONS BOOK HAS SOLD 900 COPIES. By LESLEY-ANNE MARKS Alligator Contributing Writer Apparently some traditions never die. After more than 40 years, the "F Book" is back and working as a guide to the Gator Nation. A mixture of scrapbook and student guide, the book outlines the basics of being a student at UP. Although the book was given to all incoming freshmen during their Preview sessions this year, more than 900 copies of the book have been sold so far. "Once we put it online, it really took off," said Brent Fisher, software manager at the UF Bookstore. A portion of book sale proceeds will go to the Student Alumni Association scholarship fund. The book includes five chapters covering topics like lost traditions, student life and modem traditions. "As a piece of history, each 'F Book' tells us a lot Student about the student culture of the time," said UF Historian Carl Van Ness. "The world of a freshman prior to World War II was far removed from the students who came after the war and would totally seem alien to a student in 2006." The 2006 edition marks the first time the book has been published since its publication was stopped in 1960, when the Office of Student Affairs started producing a student handbook instead. Inspiration for the original "F Book" came from former Dean of Students Robert C. Beaty, who edited the Georgia Institute of Technology's "T Book" before he came to UP, Van Ness said. The Alumni Association hopes that future students will use the revived book as a way to enhance their UF experience. "This is their initial link to the Gator Nation," said Laura Lentz, the UF Alumni Association's assistant director. "We currently are the only school in the country with a book as extensive as the 'F Book."' The "F Book" costs $8.95 at the UP Bookstore.

4, ALLIGATOR E THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2006 Firefighters in tune with instrumental tradition N FRIENDS, CO-WORKERS HONE PIPING SKILLS. By DREW HARWELL Alligator Writer dharwel1@aIIigator.org J.D. Perryman's face tightened as he filled his bagpipe with deep, long breaths. His fingers squeezed and quivered from the force he put on the chanter, the recorder-like piece on which he played the melody, and a loud, sustained note bellowed and bounced off the fire station nearby. Robin Hendrickson, Perryman's best friend and teacher, closed his eyes and dipped a finger into the top of the pipes to tune them. "Ong-ong-orig-onnnnnn," he sung, helping Perryman find the note for his bass pipe. For the two men, this was business as usual at the firehouse. Perrymnan, 38, works as a firefighter at Gainesville Fire Rescue Station No. 2 on Archer Road, and Hendrickson, 50, is a program manager for Alachua County Fire Rescue. The two friends have played bagpipes together for three years. "If I had to teach anyone, this would be the guy," Hendrickson said about Perryman. "A, he loves it. B, he feels the music." The friends met in 2003 when Perryman attended a firefighter's funeral. For the ceremony's finale, a. bagpipe rendition of "Amazing Grace" was played through a boom box. Perryman wanted to give funerals the real thing. He sought out Hendrickson, who at that time had 10 years of experience with the bagpipes, and begged him for instruction. Three years later, the two are still practicing and playing as part of the Honor Guard, which plays for special events like the Firefighters Ball and funerals. When the two play, they dress in full Scottish attire, including a Royal Stewart Tartan kilt and a black military tunic. However, during practice, the two keep their normal clothes on in case the station is called for an emergency. The two said bagpipes have been a firefighter tradition ever since Irish and Scottish immigrants began running fire brigades in the United States in the 1800s. The custom still stands today, although pipers are much less common. The two practice at least once a week whenever Perryman's shift, 24 hours every three days, and Hendrickson's shift, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, coincide. Each practice session consists of about an hour of practicing without the bag and about an hour with it. They explained that tuning the bagpipes is the longest and hardest part, especially in Florida where the heat and humidity can make the pipes unstable. Perryman, an avid musician, still has problems with the bagpipes after three years of practice. "Here's a famous quote: It takes seven years to make a piper," Hendrickson said. "Piping's really a pain in the -it's really difficult." Friends of the pair can attest to the difficulty of the bagpipes. They've listened to hours of the loud noise the instrument produces. "He walks around playing his flute for hours on end," said firefighter Rusty Barrett as he prepared the station's dinner of salad, steak and buttered potatoes. "We make some snide jokes, like, 'Here comes that piccolo player."' "Our wives aren't crazy about it," Perryman said. "That's why we practice it together." Perryman said Hendrickson is a very strict teacher. Once a lesson is mastered, Hendrickson quickly moves on to another part. "The second he knows anything, I try and destroy him so he doesn't get a fat head," Hendrickson said. t Tim Hussin / Alligator Staff Alachua County Fire Rescue program manager Robin Hendrickson, right, helps Gainesville Fire Rescue firefighter J.D.

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2006 0 ALLIGATOR, 5 SEC championship game tickets on sale Monday SOME ARE UPSET WITH UF'S TICKET ALLOTMENT. By LISA GILL Alligator Contributing Writer On Monday, a blood-pumping, heart-pounding, sweat-pouring, reach-for-the-finish battle of the index fingers will begin at 6 p.m. At that time, UF students with credit cards in hand can order tickets to seethe Gators play in the 2006 Southeastern Conference Football Championship game -or attempt to do so. Only about 1,500 student tickets will be available. According to student ticket manager Mark Gajda, the tickets willbe sold for $35 each through the G.A.T.O.R.S. automated ticket-sales phone system. Students should be prepared to compete with about 35,000 others for a ticket, Gajda said. Accommodating 99 people at once, and taking 2.5 to three minutes per call, the phone service will sell all the tickets in about 3.5 hours. "It's tougher because there are more people that want to go to a championship game, especially when our team hasn't been there in a number of years," Gajda said. Belinda Luu, an economics junior, says she wants to go to the game but hadn't realized so few student tickets would be sold. "I think that's kind of ridiculous because there are 50,000 students at UF, and not very many people are going to be able to go," she said. Patrick Rivas, an economics junior at UF, agreed. Rivas said it isn't fair that UF only gets 1,500 student tickets. There are almost 50,000 undergraduate students at UP, compared to the University of Arkansas' roughly 14,000 undergraduates, So UF should get a bigger proportion of student tickets for the championship game, he said. Rivas said he wants to buy a ticket but intends to sell it if he gets one. "I would go, but no one else is going to be able to actually get tickets, so I'll probably end up selling it anyway," Rivas said. Students, regardless of whether they are season ticket holders, may attempt to order one ticket by calling (352) 384-3262 or 1-877-428-6747 from 6 p.m. until the tickets are sold out. HEALTH States move toward mandatory HPV immunizations By TATIANA.NAVARRO Alligator Contributing Writer A human papillomavirus vaccine that also helps prevent cervical cancer in women may soon become an immunization requirement for some school-aged children. Recently, the Michigan Senate has approved Gardasil, made by Merck & Co. Inc., as a routine immunization for girls entering the sixth grade. Meanwhile, Florida has yet to consider making the HPV vaccine mandatory for schoolchildren. "Florida has it on its agenda," said Anna Giuliano, an interdisciplinary oncology professor at the University of South Florida. However, Florida still has to create legislation and build up resources at the Florida Department of Health before the vaccine could become mandatory, she said. "It hasn't been put forward in the Legislature," Giuliano said. The main influence on state iamurization laws comes from the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, which consists of 15 experts chosen by the secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. "They're like an arm for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention," said Sherry Wmdham, immunizations program coordinator for the Alachua County Health Department. "They'll make recommendations, and each state takes from that recommendation to "You will have a lot of resistance by parents who don't believe their children will be sexually active." Sherry Windham immunizations program coordinator for the Alachua County Health Department decide what's mandatory," she said. "It'l take several ,years for it to pass through, because you will have a lot of resistance by parents who don't believe their children will be sexually active." The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that more than 6 million people in the United States are infected with HPV every year. HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection in the United States today, according to the Food and Drug Administration. Despite recommendations, the HPV vaccine isn't free. Currently, it is available at the UF Women's Clinic at $120 per shot, and the procedure requires three shots over a sixmonth period. The vaccine is not available at the Alachua County Health Department. Whether or not Florida becomes the next state to approve the vaccine for schoolchildren, Gardasil is still recommended by many health professionals. "I definitely plan to acquire this for my 22year-old," Windham said. Dr. Russell Robinson, Professor of Music at the University of Florida and STOP.'

6, ALLIGATOR S THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2006 Editorial What election? White House already back to its old tricks ast week, George W. Bush held a press conference. He called the Democrats' election victory "a thumping" and promised to work with his opponents in Congress "to find common ground in the next two years." It sounded pretty good at the time. Unfortunately, the president's flirtation with bipartisanship lasted about a week. On Wednesday, he nominated John Bolton as ambassador to the United Nations, despite objections from Democrats -and a handful of Republican senators, one of whom said confiming Bolton would "fly in the face" of voters' wishes. But Bush didn't stop there. He also nominated Kenneth Tomlinson for another term as chairman of the Broadcasting Board of Governors, which directs American TV and radio broadcasts overseas. A minor position, maybe, but Tomlinson doesn't deserve it -in 2004, he used the board's resources to run a private horse-racing operation out of his office. That's right. Horse racing. But he's tight with Karl Rove, so why let a little thing like corruption stand in the way of another term? Believe it or not, it gets worse., When the Senate Judiciary Committee reconvenes, Bush plans to renominate four judges the committee rejected earlier this year. One of them helped the Pentagon finesse its way around laws prohibiting tQrtum. Another is considered unqualified by the American Bar Association. And, of course, one of them is a lobbyist for the energy industry. These aren't just bad judges -they're awful. In fact, Republicans on the Judiciary Connittee have already said they won't be confirmed. So what's the point? It seems Bush is spoiling any chance of effective bipartisan government just for the hell of it. If this week is any indication of how the White House intends to "find common ground" with Democrats in Congress, buckle your seat belts. The next two years could be a pretty bumpy ride. Research roulette or enterprising reporters, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is the gift that keeps on giving -every time it seems the CLAS debacle can't get any worse, it does. The administration is always standing by with some new scheme, some new bungle. You can set your watch by it. This week, a member of the CLAS Assembly confirmed what we've long suspected -that UF expects CLAS departments to offset budget cuts with corporate research partnerships. Of course, there aren't many to be had for English and' religion, two of the fields hit hardest by the five-year plan. That's what worries us. Chemistry, psychology and physics are moneymaking departments. They can rely on patents, research and other sources of income to stay afloat. But the humanities -English, history, foreigrn languages -aren't so lucky. They need university funding, and lots of it. Unfortunately, it seems a well-rounded liberal arts education doesn't fit into UF's research-oriented, sinkor-swim mentality. That's a shame, because the humanities are as important now as they've ever been -and turning UF into a high-class vocational school would be a huge mistakee' When administrators talk about running UF like a business, we hope this isn't what they mean. 1* 0h independent florida alligator Stephanie Garry Jake Ramsey EDITOR OPINIONS EDITOR Ashton Grosz Tom Durrenberger MANAGING EDITOR Anuradha Pandey EDITORIAL BOARD The Alligator encourages comments from readers.

Those in power must have the consent of the governed, and the media keep the governed informed about the accomplishments -and the dirty secrets -of those in charge. But the system isn't perfect. There are secrets the press can't find. Also, because of the benefits it gets from a major news story, the press may blow things out of proportion for the sake of business. So you have to use your judgment and decide for yourself what really matters. The biggest problem with the press, at least in America, has to do with war. War is a horrific undertaking in any circumstances, and people don't like to read about it. They become unhappy with their government and want the fighting to end. So military leaders must choose tactics not for effectiveness and efficiency, but for how they'll play in the papers. It's a lose-lose situation -they take relatively ineffective action, and the headlines still aren't that great. The result is a war that doesn't seem to go anywhere. The people are angry at the politicians for leading them into a conflict they see as pointless and interminable -but they never let the powers that be fight it the right way in the first place. In this situation, we're unable to win. And since Vietnam, the first prolonged war to include a major media presence, we haven't. This is our second try at a Gulf War, and while I believe we should be there, I also believe our leaders are too scared to do what is necessary to get the job done. The kind of war we needed would have had a higher rate of casualties, but would be years shorter, with a much lower overall death toll and clearly accomplished goals. Patrick Barrett That couldn't happen in modern America, because the path to such a victory is paved with gruesome headlines and gory pictures that we, the people, can't stomach. So we vote in new politicians Grnad t~riu to bring our troops home. Many letters@ailigator.org people have concern only for our brave soldiers when they make that kind of decision. But consider the consequences. As we leave Iraq -which we'll start to do in the next year -we show our enemies we won't fight a war, and that U.N. sanctions are meaningless. Celebrities and anti-war activists assure them that we will rein in the most technologically advanced military, with the most talented soldiers in the world, because the American people won't face war. Bui Tin, the North Vietnamese officer who accepted surrender from South Vietnam, said: "Every day our leadership would .follow the growth of the American anti-war movement. Visits to Hanoi (by American activists) gave us confidence that we should hold on in the face of battlefield reverses. We were elated when Jane Fonda .said at a press conference that she was ashamed of American actions in the war and that she would struggle along with us." It may be too late for Iraq, but America will have more conflicts to face. Think about what's at stake and whether we're demonstrating strength -or vulnerability -to those who would destroy us.

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2006 U ALLIGATOR, 7 What makes some stories news? If you ever want to get a roomful of shy journalists to break the ice and start talking, bring up the topic of news judgment. The process of deciding what's news and what to prioritize in print is among the most vexing questions facing the media. While the topic is always fodder for debate, six guiding principles have been codified into a set of commandments known as news values. First, proximity. For the Alligator, this means covering stories that relate to campus issues at UP. Readers often ask, "Why does the Alligator ignore issues facing East Gainesville?" The answer is that the Alligator's focus is on the lives of students. Next, timeliness. Breaking news or "hard news" better be in the paper the morning after it happens, because it spoils fast. But sometimes the Alligator doesn't hear about a story until too late. On other occasions, stories competing for the same limited space overshadow a scoop. Then there's prominence. Alligator reporters will pat you on the back for the four touchdowns you threw in your flag football game -but the Sports page will actually write about UF quarterback Chris Leak's four. Let's not forget impact. If your landlord raises your rent, the Alligator will sympathize with you. But if it's a trend across Gainesville, the Classifieds won't be the only section discussing it. Of course, controversy is important too. The media love it. In a recent story, the Alligator incorrectly reported that no one showed up to protest Andrew Card's speech at the Stephen C. O'Connell Center. The College Democrats had staged a protest andwere understandably upset by the omission. The mistake was unintentional -no red-blooded reporter would fail to capitalize on a good story. Finally, there's unusualness. Dogs bite people every day, but an old adage says, "When a man bites a dog, that is news." Typically, the more aspects of news value a story has, the more likely Mike Jayne it is to get printed. Take the Ombudsman Danny Rolling coverage, mjaynecalligator.org for example. It had all six. There are also outside pressures that affect news judgment. The Alligator, like most newspapers, aims to inform and entertain its audience. Generally, that means publishing what the public wants to read. But the Alligator can't shirk responsibility for occasionally telling readers what they should care about. Take the Gainesville City Commission's recent hikes of landlord permit fees. The cost increase is likely to trickle down to student renters, so it's an important story. It's not sexy, but who else is going to tell UF students what they need to know? While the Alligator often sets the agenda for what is news, it also reacts to what the public considers news. After business lecturer John Hall behaved erratically during a class, some readers likened the Alligator's coverage of the story to kicking a man while he was down. But the buzz started on Web sites like Collegelumor.com and YouTube.com before the Alligator jumped on the bandwagon. News judgment is an important question at any newspaper. It's an ongoing challenge at the Alligator, so you can expect to hear more about it from me in the future. Mike Jayne is a journalism and political science senior. His column appears as needed. Don't sweat the swear words This is a response to Jonathan Keenan's Tuesday letter regarding the use of profanity in the Florida Players' production of "Proof." As the director of this production, I'd first like to thank Keenan for his feedback. However, I'd also like to point out that "Proof" is a Pulitzer Prize-winning play It also happens to be copyrighted, like most published works, which prevents the alteration of the script in any manner. I understand that Keenan was offended by the profanity in the production, which the playwright employs selectively and with purpose. My only regret is that he let a few "bad words" corrupt his perception of the work.

8, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2006 STUDY ABROAD Students seek unique spots By JESSICA MCHUGH Alligator Contributing Writer Deciding what to pack can be a mystery. For just a few short months, Stephanie David will travel the countries of South America, and she knows she probably won't need her favorite red shoes or her closetful of clothing, because some days she will have to forfeit showers and dean clothes to experience another way of life. David, a family, youth and community sciences junior, is just one of many students to study abroad in "nontraditional" countries, such as those in Latin America and Asia. "I want to get back to the heart of what studying abroad is all about," David said. "Not that America is the same as Europe. I feel that South America is more challenging because it's so different." More American students like David are studying abroad for academic credit. There has been a 144 percent increase during the past decade, according to Open Doors 2006, an annual report on international education released Monday: I want to get back to the heart of what studying abroad is all about." Stephanie David UFjunior The most popular destinations for UF students include Italy, the United Kingdom, France and Spain. While the favored destinations am European, the demand for nontraditional countries has increased in recent years. Students studying in Latin America constitute 14 percent of students nationwide studying abroad, with Argentina seeing the largest increase -53 percent, according to Open Doors. Study abroad in Latin American countries is definitely a trend, said Angela Grindal, a UF study abroad adviser. "Students go because there is a need for volunteers, for socialljusice studies and for medical studies in poor countries," she said. "Also, the cost is less expensive to go to Argentina than Western Europe." Grindal said she estimates that about 50 percent of students studying in Latin America have already been to Western Europe. Kirsten Eller, a UF study abroad adviser, said more people are also studying in Asia than in the past. "People are realizing the business purpose." she said.

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2006 E ALLIGATOR, 9 Governor supports bioscience at UF BUSH, from page I AIDS speech to focus on cases in black women By ASHLEY BRUNTON Alligator Contributing Writer More than 100,000 .cases have been reported in Florida. That's not the number of cases of Gator fever, but something more serious -AIDS. AIDS Address 2006, a UF event designed to inform students, faculty, health practiOn tioners and the public about prevention Camttpus programs, will be held today "Florida is consistently ranked in the top three states with new cases and overall cases of AIDS," said Brian Dodge, an assistant professor of public health programs. The address, sponsored by the College of Public Health and Health Professions, will be held at 1 p.m. in Room G301 of the HPNP Complex. Gina Wingood, associate professor at the Emory University Rollins School of Public Health and the Emory Center for AIDS Research, will speak. Wingood's research focuses on prevention programs. Dodge said Wingood will discuss the highestranking subgroup of HIV and AIDS cases: black women. Conference at the UF Hilton, Bush discussed the importance of the bioscience industry in Florida. He addressed more than 400 public officials and representatives from bioscience companies, who dined on sirloin steak and Key lime pie before Bush spoke. During his speech, Bush said he was proud of the great successes UF had achieved in biotechnology. That research field uses biology to manufacture drugs or other products. He said most universities tend to "toot their horn louder than they Bush need, but UF doesn't toot their horn loud enough." "UF is a world-class institution and it's time to let the rest of the world know it," he said. Survey method limited by technology SURVEY, from page 1 UF Survey Research Center, before distributing the surveys to make sure their statements were as unbiased and neutral as possible. Richards said a way to avoid bias in the surveys is by using a "split sample." In a split sample, half of the surveys would be distributed with the fact list and half would not. Kaufer said he originally planned to distribute the surveys using a split sample, but because of limitations with the online software used for the "Students need to be educated on both sides. There is no education that is done in a biased way." John Boyles Student Body president surveys, he was unable to. "While we did include (the fact paragraph), and we recognize there might be a little bias, we tried to include statements about tuition just to be able to provide some basic information about tuition rates and create a neutral paragraph," he said. Boyles said the statements are meant to educate students by providing "pieces on each side of the argument about tuition." "Students need to be educated on both sides," he said. "There is no education that is done in a biased way." Boyles said the surveys allow students to voice their opinions on what they hope to gain from UP. "It's their scholarship or money," he said. "We're really giving them an opportunity to come to the table and tell us what they want out of this university." People like you Donate Plasma. Earn up to $180/month Donating Plasma Regularly.

Dr. Doug Barrett, UF's senior vice president for health affairs, said the new building epitomizes the "essence of collaboration" among scientists.

Despite the sun hanging high in the sky, the crowd mostly ignored the heat. This year's Bang Music Festival brought 50 acts and 20,000 concertgoers together to the Miami bayfront. "It's like Ultra, but it's not that big," UF senior Scott Zeigler said. "It's kind of better that way. You can find your friends, and it's not as hectic." As night fell, flashing glow sticks lit the air, and the main acts took the stage. Gnarls Barkley showed up decked out in Austin Powers garb, starting their set with the film series' theme. Modest Mouse played a short set, showing off songs from their upcoming CD. With elaborate stage lights and rhinestone-studded earpieces, Duran Duran ended the night. Among the people perched on the hill near the trance stage, UF dance student Eryn Johnson made a spot in the grass for herself using an old festival program. She felt the show justified her six-hour drive from Gainesville.

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2006 N ALLIGATOR, 11 Art turns trash to treasure By CARLY BLUSTEIN Avenue Writer The old saying goes, "One person's trash is another person's treasure." But Alachua County Commissioners, the county's Office of Waste Alternatives and the Florida Museum of Natural History venture to say, "Why can't it be both?" The eighth annual recycled art competition "Trashformations" will take place through Nov. 30 at the Florida Museum of Natural History. For the contest, students in middle school, high school or college are invited to transform their trash into artwork by using any recyclable items and their own.creativity. Judging for each category is based on creative expression and the innovative use of recyclable materials. The entries must be composed of at least 70 percent reused or recycled items. Materials can include things like plastic bottles, PVC, cardboard, burlap, broken tiles, steel, copper wire and aluminum cans. "No two entries are ever the same," said Melissa Palmer, an Alachua County waste alternatives specialist and the event's coordinator. "We have had everything from banana trees to angels to mosaic busts in the past." The judging, which will take place tomorrow morning, is mainly conducted by art professors, museum curators, art appraisers and gallery owners. An awards ceremony for the winners, their friends and their teachers will be held Friday from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. About 40 students enter the competition each year, but more are expected to enter this year because it is the first year that middle schoolers can compete. "I think this program is an excellent way for students and the public to see the value in trash, while giving the students a great opportunity to showcase their artistic talent in the community using nontraditional materials," said Palmer. Although the deadline for submissions has already passed for this year, the competition is still an excellent opportunity for interested students and friends to marvel at the beauty of trash as it becomes art.

12, ALLIGATOR E THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2006 Friends end UF drama careers on musical high note By JESSICA PONN Avenue Contributing Writer Kevin Brown, Matthew Wharton and Ben Whitmore are three best friends who have made a routine out of greeting each other with death threats and middle fingers. They say it's all in good humor. Such a unique dynamic has worked well for the actors -both on and off the stage. The UF seniors all have leading roles in "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum," a musical presented by the UF School of Theatre and Dance. "We have always clicked as a group of three," Whitmore said. "We're almost like family." .The guys, who refer to themselves as the Jam Fam after their band, FolkJam 99!, have been roommates since their sophomore years. The friends have become so close and shared so many laughs, it's sometimes difficult to keep straight face on stage, Brown said. However, in spite of the constant joking, this show has a somber element. For the three friends, this will be their last musical at U. Because finding work in the field of acting is always uncertain, this show could in fact be the roommates' last musical ever. "This will be kind Local of the end of an era," S -Whitmore said. He expects Sunday's curtain call to be emotional. Brown said that if upcoming auditions for several theater companies don't go well, he will likely "go to New York and live on a wing and a prayer." Whitmore said he too will probably do "the starving actor thing for awhile." Fortunately for the guys, what could potentially be their last musical is also -one of their favorite shows. "This is the best-written farce of any musical," Brown said. "It's also one of the best books ever made." Brown, Wharton and Whitmore invested a tremendous amount of time in preparing for their roles. Cuban Cafe Gardens Caf6 Gardens has been just across from the UF Campus since 1976.

By BRIAN STEELE Alligator Writer bsteele aligator.org The number of turnovers in each game reads like numbers on a lottery ticket. 22.14. 20. That's 56 turnovers the UF women's basketball team has committed through its first three games, including its opening exhibition loss to Team adidas/ Premier Players. pWhile some mistakes are expected from a team featuring five freshmen and four .sophomores, sloppy play will not cut it if the Gators anticipate earning consecutive trips to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2002. Coach Carolyn Peck said that after facing a zone defense from North Florida, the Gators struggled in the first half against the man-to-man defense that Xavier brought. She said her team is learning when players should cut and when to pitch the ball back outside to avoid turnovers from errant passes. In order to improve the Gators' focus and turnover issues, guard Sha Brooks said that more intensity is needed. "It is a transition (for the freshmen)," Brooks said. "Of course we're going to have some games where we don't have intensity, but everybody has to'be able to pick each other up. Intensity for us is very important because if one person is hyped and ready to play, it rubs off on everyone else." FEROCIOUS DEPREE: Before the season started, junior Depree Bowden knew she'd be counted on for her defensive abilities. After two games, she is already meeting expectations. "[Bowden] was all over the floor. We've got to get everybody playing with that intensity all the time." Carolyn Peck UF women's basketball coach Against UNF and Xavier, Bowden totaled eight steals. She is the Gators' third-leading rebounder at four per game. Bowden was a starter for the Gators last year until she was replaced by Brooks early in the season. Even though she mainly has been lauded as a defensive stopper, she's contributed offensively with 12 points per contest, second best for UP. Bowden has shown little trepiLooks like someone took a peek at the Holiday Gift Guides. Show our readers all the gift ideas you have to offer by advertising in this year's Holiday Gift Guides. Gift Guide II Run Date: Dec. 1 eadline:Nov. 2 2 eas the independent florida WgI' dation in getting after the ball, as she has already collected several floor burns this year. "She was all over the floor," Peck said. "We've got to get everybody playing with that intensity all the time." Bowden tries to up the energy level every time she's out on the court. "I'm just trying to bring up as much energy as I can," she said. "Anything I can do to just get pumped up because when we get pumped up, we get ready to play. And we need that every game." INJURY UPDATES: Freshman Jennifer Mossor is still recovering from a stress fracture in her left foot, but Peck said Monday that Mossor is out of her boot and can now "do some things -on the court." Before the injury, Mossor was the leading candidate for starting point guard. Senior Briana Phillips also tweaked her back in the second half against Xavier but should play this weekend in the Timeout for HIV/AIDS Classic. Peck also said freshman LaToya Bullard, who has dealt with nagging issues with her back and hamstring, is day-to-day. Bullard had a strong collegiate debut last weekend as she helped the Gators run a faster-paced offense. Bullard is averaging 6.5. points, two steals and 20.5 minutes per game. E --

Bowden receives payout to bow out E BOOSTERS GAVE THE FIRED COACH $537,500. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS TALLAHASSEE -Florida State offensive coordinator Jeff Bowden received a $537,500 payoff from the school's boosters to resign following several seasons of declining production. The settlement was revealed Wednesday when the school released a copy of the agreement Bowden's attorneys reached with the university and its boosters. The resignation takes effect Nov. 26, a day after the season finale against U. Bowden -youngest son of Coach Bobby Bowden -retains his present $141,000 salary until his contract expires next August. He then will receive annual payments of $107,500 until August 2012. The agreement was signed by Jeff Bowden. Also signing it was Andy Miller, president of Seminole Boosters, Inc., FSU president T.K. Wetherell and Athletic Director Dave Hart Jr. Wetherell and Hart would not comment. "It's not like we stand on the sideline on these things," Miller said. "What we try to do is provide the university, the people in charge of these decisions, with the resources to make the calls they need to make." "It's just amazing. When things go wrong, the first thing they blame is the offensive coordinator." Bobby Bowden Florida State football coach The agreement does not preclude Jeff Bowden from getting another job. He will still receive biweekly payments of $4,135. It does preclude Bowden from sung the school. "It's just amazing," Bobby Bowden said Wednesday. "When things go wrong, the first thing they blame is the offensive coordinator. That's kind of the game we Americans play." SPIKES, from page 24 When Siler was a freshman in 2004, he performed admirably in place of an injured Channing Crowder, eventually being named the top freshman in the Southeastern Conference. Spikes hasn't played nearly enough to garner that kind of acclaim this year, but he has drawn rave reviews from the coaching staff, most notably for his ability to carry his 6-foot-3, 240-pound frame and still be extremely agile. NICK-EL, from page 24 Atkins of punching her and trapping her in his car for 20 minutes. No arrests were made, and Atkins asked for his release from the team. His request was granted. UF defensive tackle Steven Harris: Meyer suspended Harris from the season opener for violating team rules. Meyer also dismissed Harris from most of spring practice due to personal reasons. Harris' grades might have played a factor. Former UF defensive tackle Marcus Thomas: The senior's dismissal from the team prior to the Vanderbilt game ended a season"I've never had (a linebacker) that size," Strong said. "He does a good job of carrying his weight, and he's a load in there." Spikes, who called all of his family and friends thinking he'd be starting last Gators week, is just happy to get his Linebackers shot. "They always say, 'Be accountable for your position," Spikes said. "I feel like whenever my number is called, I'm going to get in and get the job done as Siler would do. I feek like it's like high school: Just play ball. Just play" long saga. Thomas tested positive for marijuana twice and was suspended a controversial total of three games. He went from being a team captain to off the team in a span of six days. UF wide receiver Nyan Boateng: Last week, a female UF student stabbed Boateng, according to a police report. Though the receiver denied the claim, he was indefinitely suspended from team activities. Meyer said Boateng would return this week. From the outside, it appears that the players are mostly to blame, but don't let Meyer off the hook. Meyer said he doesn't live in a sheltered world and knows what's going on. But he has failed to nip this in the bud. Instead, issues lingered and players made more poor decisions and received the same consequences -short suspensions for first-timers. Yet fans still adore Meyer. In an alligatorSports.org poll last weekend, 73 percent of voters said they would rather have Meyer coaching UF than Steve Spurrier. So why does Meyer still have a through-the-roof approval rating? At 9-1, the Gators have clinched .a berth in the SEC title game for the first time since 2000. In another first since Spurrier left, the Gators will be in the BCS hunt after Thanksgiving. In other words, it doesn't mean a thing if they still get that championship ring.

ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2006 www.alligatorSports.org Moss suspended for game against Western Carolina Tim Casey/ Alligator Staff UF junior defensive end Jarvis Moss pressures Central Florida quarterback Steven Moffett. Moss was suspended for the Western Carolina game for an undisclosed violation of team policy. By BRYAN JONES Alligator Staff Writer bjones@alligator.org UF coach Urban Meyer announced Wednesday that starting defensive end Jarvis Moss has been suspended for Saturday's game against Western Carolina for an undisclosed violation of team policy. "He's suspended for this game," Meyer said. "If he does everything right, he'll be back (for the Florida State game)." Meyer refused to comment on why Moss was suspended but said he was disappointed with the lineman's decision-making. "You really challenge and question how that can happen at this time of year," Meyer said. Moss blocked a potential gamewinning 48-yard field goal by South Carolina's Ryan Succop on Saturday. Sophomore Derrick Harvey will likely take over for Moss at defensive end, with senior Ray McDonald at the other end spot. Seniors Joe Cohen and Steven Harris will probably start at defensive tackle. Two weeks ago, defensive tackle Marcus Thomas was dismissed from the team. Last Sunday, Meyer talked about how proud he was of Moss. "He had a lot of issues that probably won't ever be told unless he wants to tell them," Meyer said in his weekly teleconference. "He's a guy I like to have around my family. He's a guy I like to have in front of my defense. I couldn't say that a year and a half ago. He's a guy that had a lot of issues. "He's suspended for this game. If he does everything right, he'll be back (for the Florida State game)." Urban Meyer UF football coach "I'm awfully proud he's on my team, and he's going to be a great success in life. He not only turned around his football (career), but his life." NO-BRAINER: With the Gators' depth issues on the defensive line as of late, Meyer was toying recently with pulling the redshirt of freshman defensive tackle Lawrence Marsh. A broken right hand that Marsh suffered on Tuesday made that decision a lot easier. "It's almost for sure he's going to redshirt now," Meyer said. Spikes making statement THE FRESHMAN MAY START AGAINST WESTERN CAROLINA. By DAN TREAT Alligator Staff Writer dtreat@alligator.org He announced his arrival as subtly as a freight train pulls into the station. And for the Southern Miss player who was in his path, it likely felt like he'd been hit by one. With one crushing blow in early September, freshman linebacker Brandon Spikes made it known that he would be a force on the college scene after being a top-flight recruit and a U.S. Army AllAmerican coming out of Shelby, N.C. "First play -boom. Got the tackle." Spikes said. "And. I hit the guy and brought-it to him. Coaches kind of liked that, and the older guys really liked that." Spikes was limited primarily to special teams duty through the meat of the Gators' season, but he has been called on in certain situations when players were injured or needed a breather. Most notably, Spikes came in for junior Brandon Siler against South Carolina last Saturday after Siler's knee injury rendered him ineffective. Spikes recorded three tackles, including a game-changing tackle for loss on South Carolina's final possession, as the Gators held on for a 17-16 win. WithSilerstillbanged. up, Spikes might have to start Saturday against Western Carolina. "He did a good job of going in place of Siler," UF co-defensive coordinator Charlie spikes Strong -said. "The thing he's done is he's worked and put himself in that position. .I feel very comfortable with him starting Saturday. He understands the system and knows what we're trying to do." Spikes' emergence has reminded some of another Brandon who stepped in to replace an experienced linebacker, and that would be the man he's replacing: Siler. SEE SPIKES, PAGE 23 Wins no excuse for suspensions expected to receive UF's weekly written statement Wednesday. I expected it to read something like this: "Due to some issues Jarvis Moss is dealing with, he will not participate in Saturday's game against Western Carolina." But a two-week string of press releases concerning suspensions or dismissals looks to have been snapped. Still, three days remain for the streak to continue. After Wednesday's practice, UF coach Urban Meyer spoke about the one-game suspension of Moss, a defensive end, in terms of the UF program. "It could be worse," Meyer said. "I can tell you the names of some schools that are really struggling. The Gators aren't. The Gators are going to go get their 10th win somehow. We're going to get our 10th win this week." I could care less about how the Gators Nick Zaccardi Nick-el Coverage nzaccardi@ailigator.org will manage without Moss against an I-AA team that allows 200 rushing yards per game and has lost to Elon and Liberty. The real problem is the exponentially growing number of off-field incidents at UE. The Kenneth Tookes-Dee Webb rifle episode in February served as a premonition instead of an isolated incident.
