MOVING SEASON


Students stuck



between leases


By MORGAN THIBODEAUX
Alligator Contributing Writer

Josh McCarty will soon be
starting his senior year at UF.
He's a chemical engineering major
and gets good grades. He never
thought he'd be homeless.
But something around this time
.of year is leaving many students
like McCarty without a place to
live the period between leases.
While some students are re-
locating, they are stuck with old
leases ending and new leases not
beginning until a few days, or
even a few weeks, after they have-
to move out.
In McCarty's situation, he is
left with no home for nine days.
Though he is from Jacksonville
and the drive is only one and a half
hours, he is taking summer classes
and needs to stay close.
"I guess it's my fault because
I didn't check to make sure I
could get into the new place soon


enough, but I still don't know
what I'm going to do for nine
days," he said.
McCarty's girlfriend, Melissa
Berlin, 23, had somewhat of a
stressful move, as well.
Her lease ended Monday, but
her new lease didn't start until
Wednesday. This left her stranded
for two days with furniture, dishes,
boxes of food, an entire wardrobe
and nowhere to go, she said.
One option Berlin, a recent
UF journalism graduate, consid-
ered was to put her belongings
in storage for a few days. But in
Gainesville, storage is in high
demand.
"The closest storage I could
find was in Jonesville, and they
only had a closet-sized unit to rent
me," she said. "They told me they
did not know of any vacancies
anywhere near Gainesville."
When students find they have

This summer, UF began updating its
computer software for the first time in
about four years.
The campuswide upgrade from
Microsoft Office 2003 to the 2007 version
started at the beginning of summer A and
will be completed before the fall semester
begins.
"UF has always been on the cutting
edge of technology," said Rory DeSimone,
who has taught courses based on Microsoft
products at UF for about 10 years. "We've
always updated our software within a
semester of its release, but in the past the
changes have not been as drastic as this
will be."
Instead of menu commands, the new
program has toolbar buttons, called "rib-

but the 2007 version requires two actions
instead of just one.

UPD auctions bikes, cars


* MOST AUCTIONED BICYCLES
WERE SOLD FOR ABOUT $15.

By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Contributing Writer
For students looking for a new car, all
it takes is $25 and a computer.
On Tuesday in the University Police
Department's online auction of aban-
doned property, one bidder snatched two
Chevys at that price, for a grand total of
$50.
In that same auction, 21 cars were sold
for a total of $11,700.50.
Because the cars were abandoned on
campus, UPD does not know much about
them, said Susan Pratt, a UPD officer.
Most of the time, the cars don't even come
with keys, she said.
For those not wanting to stake their
claim on a strange car, UPD also sells
hundreds of bicycles every year. In the
last auction, 366 bicycles were sold online,
mainly in bulk, for about $15 per bicycle.


a A former UF student
recently helped un-
earth the nearly com- .
plete fossil remains
of a Camarasaurus,
a herbivore that could
be up to 100 million
years old.
See story, pg. 5.


UPD spokesman Jeff Holcomb, who
collects the bicycles for auction, said he
patrols the campus for neglected bicycles
three or four times a year and usually nets
between 800 and 1,000 annually.
The proceeds from the sale of aban-
doned bicycles and cars go to the Gator
Loan Fund, a need-based financial assis-
tance program for students.
Abandoned transportation is not the
only thing sold in UF's online auctions,
though. The rest of it

Amputee drives against law
LAND O' LAKES, Fa. (AP)
- There was a time when nothing
could keep Michael Francis Wiley
from behind the wheel not even
a triple amputation that makes
simple tasks such as tying a shoe
impossible. Nor the police, who
busted Wiley so many times it is
now a felony for him to drive.
Wiley lost both arms and a leg
in an electrical accident and taught
himself to drive using his stumps,
toes and teeth. But now he is at the
end of the road: He is scheduled to
face a judge Friday for sentencing .
on a half-dozen felony traffic and
drug possession charges.
It's the latest in more than two
decades of dashes with the law.
"I'm beat. The white flag is
up," said Wiley, 40, from behind
thick glass in the Pasco County
Jail. He has been locked up with-
out bond since he led police on a
high-speed chase in May.
Wiley once had a valid license,
but it has now been suspended
several times since 1985, accord-
ing to his attorney.
Wiley was already facing felo-
ny charges of driving without a li-
cense May 8 when a police officer
spotted him behind the wheel of a
blue Ford Explorer at a New Port
Richey convenience store. The of-
ficer told him to wait while he ran
a license check.
Wiley put the truck in gear and
sped off, according to the arrest re-

CLAS converts salary


to TVs for office lobby


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Contributing Writer

Despite an accruing $4 million
debt, the UF College of Liberal
Arts and Sciences Academic
Advising Center just got a set of
flat-screen TVs.
The two 32-inch Westinghouse
LCD TVs, currently in the lobby
of the advising center, are used
to display "things like informa-
tion blurbs on majors in-CLAS or
summer study abroad opportuni-
ties or new course-offerings," said
Albert Matheny, associate dean of
CLAS and director of the AAC, in
an e-mail.
When there is nothing new to
tell students, the TVs are set to
CNN, he said.


Although funds are tight, he
said they could afford to purchase
the $599 TVs because a graduate
assistant was unable to work and
they could not replace him, so
they converted his salary.
Matheny also said he felt it
was important to replace the old
TVs because the new
On ones consume "rela-
Campus tively little power"
and are lightweight,
"which always makes me feel bet-
ter when suspending something
over students' heads!" he wrote.
To get the college out of its
growing deficit, CLAS has been
discussing a five-year plan since
last year that calls for budget and
personnel cuts in departments
such as English and religion.

Unannounced maintenance


By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

It had all the potential for a horror-movie
moment.
She turned the water off and stepped out of
the shower.
Home alone and wrapped in nothing but a
towel, she made her way to the bedroom and
suddenly heard unusual noises: feet shuffling
on linoleum flooring, pants fabric brushing
together.
Someone was inside the apartment.
Her heart raced. Peeking out of the door, she
saw the intruder, wearing khaki pants and a col-
lared shirt, holding ... a clipboard?
Architecture graduate student Katherine
Galea said she experienced this in April when
a maintenance man walked uninvited into her
University Commons apartment to replace the
air filter.
"I was so scared for my life for a couple of
moments," Galea said.
According to Florida law, apartment com-
plexes must give tenants at least 12 hours notice
if there is need to enter the residence for repairs.
Reasonable times for entry, the statute says,
are between 7:30 a.m. and 8 p.m.
Galea said she had not been notified.
Thinking this was an isolated incident, she let


it go after talking to the property manager.
When Galea received a notice someone
would come to clean the apartment between
Aug. 3 and Aug. 18, she was taken aback.
"How am I supposed to let anyone in for two
weeks?" she said.
A representative from University Commons
declined to comment.
"I was so scared for my life for a
couple of moments."
Katherine Galea
UF architecture graduate student

Lyndsey Donaldson, property manager of
.Williamsburg Village Apartments, said main-
tenance has always left a 24-hour notice for
tenants.
"We've had no problems as long as I've been
working here for a couple years," Donaldson
said.
Unless tenants leave specific hours or instruc-
tions for maintenance, they make arrangements
and notify the occupants themselves, she said.
Galea feels tenants can never be too safe.
"In this day and age, you can't assume that
everyone is the maintenance man," she said.
"You have to assume the worst for your own
safety."

* LOCAL DOG PARK KEEPS
ELECTROLYTES ON HAND.

By LINDSEY STEVENS
Alligator Contributing Writer

With temperatures higher than
90 degrees almost every day, dog
owners need to be extra cautious
when playing with their four-
legged friends outdoors.
UF religion senior Sarah Bryant
said taking Selador, her Siberian
husky-pit bull mix, to the dog park
is something she has limited this
summer because of the scorching
temperatures.
"I have only taken her to the dog
park twice this summer," she said.
"I've been trying to keep her out
of the heat. I don't want her to get
dehydrated."
Bryant said because she lives
in an apartment, she uses the dog
park to exercise her dog.
"I used to take her for walks a
couple of times a day, but now I
only take her for walks when the
sun goes down and it's not so hot,"
she said.
Dog Wood Park, 5505 SW Archer
Road, opened in 1998 in response to
the growing number of apartments
being built in Gainesville. Janet

Pepsi-sponsored UF obesity study seeks subjects


ByTRACY FLACK
Alligator Contributing Writer

If meeting UF athletes and getting free food
isn't enough of an incentive, maybe the chance
to win an iPod or bike is.
UF's Health Psychology Research Team for
the Family Health Self-Empowerment Project
is hosting Family Health Screening Day from
noon to 4 p.m. at Lincoln Middle School on
Saturday.
Alexis Lloyd, campaign manager for the


project, said she expects about 400 people to
show up. They will be screened to see if they
are eligible for a health study.
Black, Hispanic or white families-with
obese parents or children ages 9 to 15 with
a total household income less than $40,000
are eligible. Asian-American families are
also eligible for the study, but they have no
income requirements and do not need to be
overweight or obese.
.The study will look at the behavior behind
eating healthy and losing weight, Lloyd said.


"That's what makes it different
from everything else."
Alexis Lloyd
self-empowerment project manager

"That's what makes it different from ev-
erything else," she added. "They're looking
at psychological and behavioral framework
more so than any other academic study has
done thus far."


Families who commit to workshops and
two training sessions will receive $125.
The PepsiCo Foundation awarded the UF
Foundation the $1,169,143 three-year research
and intervention grant for the project in 2006.
Lloyd said UF received the grant because
the project fulfills everything the PepsiCo
Foundation looks for in a proposal.
"Honestly, health is one of the greatest gifts
you can give to anybody," Lloyd said. "We re-
ally just want people to come out and enjoy
themselves."

Hobson, the owner of the dog park,
said there was a growing need for
people to have a safe place to take
their dog off the leash.
The park has about 450 regis-
tered members, Hobson said, not
including periodic visitors.
However, in the summertime,
dogs are not frequenting the park
as much.
"Dogs always have to exercise,
and what we are finding is that
people are coming
LOCal early in the morning
News and after work, not so
much in the middle of
the day," Hobson said.
She said the park has about 15
water stations for the dogs, and
there are ponds they can jump in
to cool off, which can prevent dogs
from getting too hot.
Hobson said they have never
had any emergencies at the park
with dogs suffering from heat-
stroke.
"We try to let people know
That it is really hot out there and
not to get too overheated," she
said. "I carry electrolytes for dogs.
Everybody that is here is trained in
animal first aid. If something were
to happen, we would bring them
in, cool them down and give them
some electrolytes."

Ryland Rogers, chairman of the
Judiciary Committee and one of the
bill's authors, began to present the bill
when Sen. Lindsey Johns, chairwom-
an of the Rules and Ethics Committee,
said the bill was unconstitutional.
Johns said the Senate couldn't pass
the bill until the fall semester, accord-
ing to the constitution.
But Rogers said he thought similar
summer proceedings had occurred in
past Senate sessions.
The ensuing debate led Senate
President Robert Agrusa to call a five-
minute recess.,
Rogers and Johns continued to de-
bate in the hallway outside the Senate
chambers.
Afterward, Agrusa and Rogers


decided to hold the bill until the first
meeting of the fall.
In a phone interview, Johns said
the same problem arose summer 2006,
and the bill wasn't passed until fall.
The Senate must follow the constitu-
tion, she said.,
Fall senators, who typically have
more experience than their summer
replacements and are more affected
by reapportionment, should vote on
the issue, Johns said.
Rogers said in a phone interview
he thought the summer senators were
the most up-to-
Student date on reap-
Government portionment and
qualified to vote.
Educating the fall
senators on reapportionment would
be possible but an inefficient use of
time, he said.
Rogers said Agrusa's resolution
was acceptable, and he said there are
no hard feelings.
"The last-minute nature was the
surprising part about this," he said.
"But in the larger picture, it should
work out fine."
The Senate also passed a bill rais-
ing Student Government's emergency
reserves from $500,000 to $1 million.


Killer's guilt eases minds


* LEO L. BOATMAN MURDERED TWO
SFCC STUDENTS IN 2006.

By ANDREW TAN

Craig Gillikin said he doesn't want to
move on he just wants to heal.
Healing may come easier now for
Gillikin, an SFCC faculty adviser to Students
for Environmental Harmony, as Leo L.
Boatman, 21, the murderer of two former
SFCC students, changed his plea to guilty on
Monday and will serve two consecutive life
sentences.
Boatman gunned down 26-year-olds John
M. Parker and Amber M. Peck at random
with an AK-47 rifle in the Ocala National
Forest on January 4, 2006.
"I can't offer an explanation," Boatman
said to Circuit Judge Willard Pope, "because
there is none."
Gillikin said the plea was a blessing. He
said Boatman's plea helps prevent a lengthy
trial that could go on -for months.
However, Gillikin said he doesn't ever
want to forget Peck or Parker.
UF natural resource conservation junior
Shane Stoner-Bryant belonged to the club
and knew them when he was at SFCC.
He said he was also satisfied with the
verdict and has no anger toward Boatman.
Giving Boatman the death penalty, he said,
won't bring them back.
Stoner-Bryant said the first meeting after
the murder was somber. He said most of the


time was spent sharing memories of Peck
and Parker. In memory of Peck and Parker,
the "Amber Marie Peck and John Michael
Parker Environmental Sciences Scholarship"
was established.
Gillikin said the scholarship awards $500
to a student who majors in an area of envi-
ronmental sciences.
"It's our way of trying to remember," he
said.

Former student spends summer finding dinosaur fossils


ByNOELSANCHEZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

Every summer, Bob Boscarelli embarks on a
treasure hunt in Wyoming.
The treasures are dinosaur fossils, and the
hunt involves digging in extremely dry, 100-
degree weather.
Boscarelli, a former UF student, has been
participating in digs in Shell, Wyo., each sum-
mer for the past four years with a team of three
or four volunteers under paleontologist Bob
Simon.
"It's not glamorous, but sticking a knife in
the ground and hitting a bone or tooth makes it
worthwhile," Boscarelli said.
This summer has been a good one for dis-
coveries. On June 3, the team found a nearly
complete Camarasaurus, an herbivore that
lived in the late Jurassic Period more than 100
million years ago.
More than 90 percent of the dinosaur has
been found with just a couple feet of the tail
missing, Boscarelli said.
He said he expects the digging to be finished
in the next few weeks, and then the fossils will
be preserved and sold to a museum.
It was found in "living position," which
means it was not torn apart after death by
predators or other disturbances, he said.
Although the Camarasaurus is not an un-
common dinosaur, finding the entire skeleton is
quite rare, said Paul Ciesielski, a UF paleontol-
ogy professor.
"Any time you find a specimen that is com-
plete, they're significant to science," he said.
Having a small population of complete di-
nosaurs gives scientists insight into information
such as growth rates and differences between
males and females, Ciesielski said.
This is not Boscarelli's first time digging up a
full skeleton. In 2004 he had the opportunity to
help unearth a 15-foot-long Stegosaurus named
Sarah.
"It was one of the most complete ever
found," he said. "Most of the time you find
pieces and parts."


Boscarelli's hobby involves extensive ex-
cavation. Workers use a track hoe to dig 30
feet below the surface. Then they use hunting
knives to dig right above the bone and smaller
instruments, such as knives, screwdrivers and
hammers, for the finer details. Boscarelli some-
times asks his dentist for used dental picks for
the job.
"If its a hobby, it's a pretty intense hobby,"
he said, "It's my avocation."
Boscarelli described his experience with the
two dinosaurs as "living a dream."

"Any time you find a specimen that
is complete, they're significant to
science."
Paul Cleslelski
UF paleontology professor

It is a dream realized later in life. Although
he studied geology at UF from 1974 to 1979,
Boscarelli never finished his degree after the
death of his brother, he said.
He always retained his interest, however.
He took his family on vacations to geology
sites wl;ere they could look for rocks together,
and he keeps a collection of small fossils he has
found, such as teeth, he said.
He joined the paleontology team about four
years ago when Simon asked for volunteers on
an online message board.
Boscarelli now lives in Soquel, Calif., and
when he isn't digging up "world-class dinos,"
he works in the lab of a physician's office and
fixes computers, he said.
Boscarelli, who considers himself a Gator at
heart, still keeps in touch with friends from col-
lege. Some of them even visited him on a dig in
2004 wearing their UF geology shirts, he said.
"They're jealous that I get to do the dinosaur
stuff," he said. "But they're supportive."
He considers himself lucky to be able to do
what he loves for fun and to see something that
no one else has seen for millions of years.
"I liked dinosaurs since I was a kid," he said.
"Guess I never grew up." "

6, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, AUGUST 2,2007


ast night, we found ourselves in the middle of a crowded
dance floor at. Grog House, surrounded by tempting
alcoholic beverages and attractive members of the op-
posite sex. You might picture this as the ideal escape from the
time-warped, dilapidated newsroom. Interestingly enough, it
wasn't. Discovery Channel's "Shark Week" playing on the flat-
screen televisions mounted on the walls of Grog captured our
attention more.than the bar's freeing party atmosphere. We just
wanted to sit in the comer, sipping some ice water and learn-
ing about one of the world's most feared predators. Maybe we
need to get out more. Or maybe science has managed to market
itself as more entertaining than a grope-fest on the dance floor
of a popular college town hot-spot. Whichever the case, we'
devote this Darts & Laurels to a fascinating week in science.
We also thank the scientific community for saving us from
clouded judgment last night and a bad hangover this morning.
Normally we like to take a bite out of the political world, but
you'll just have to settle for a tamed edition of...



Darts & Laurels
We've basically abandoned our Law & Order reruns and
HBO movies to watch Discovery Channel's most anticipated
annual series, "Shark Week." Besides the fact that-we live
for cheesy re-enactments of shark attack survivors' peril-
ous situations, this year's "Shark Week" presentation gave
UF students a surprise of Great-White-Shark proportions.
Discovery Channel began its explosive series by featuring
George Burgess, a UF scientist and director of the Florida
Museum of Natural History Program for Shark Research, as
an expert in the two-hour documentary "Ocean of Fear: The
Worst Shark Attack Ever." According to an Alligator article,
Burgess traveled throughout the United States interviewing
the survivors of the largest shark attack in history. So we
award you, George Burgess, with this we're-happy-things-
are-going-so-swimmingly-for-you-and-the-sharks LAUREL.
Just when you thought nothing could beat the awe-inspir-
ing nature of "Shark Week," we have one word that might
pull you away from watching these real-life "Jaws" stories.
What's the only thing that can top helpless humans, blood,
shipwrecks and sharks? Think big. Think dinosaurs. On June
3 in Shell, Wyo., former UF student Bob Boscarelli helped
excavate a nearly complete Camarasaurus, a herbivore that
lived in the Jurassic Period more than 100 million years ago.
Take that, "Jaws." We all know "Jurassic Park" was so much
cooler. Though not an uncommon dinosaur discovery, find-
ing a Camarasaurus in its entirety is extremely rare. Thus we
dedicate this if-you-were-our-dad-you-definitely-would've-
been-at-our-elementary-school-Career-Day LAUREL to for-
mer Gator Bob Boscarelli.
Now we'd like to take the time to address a serious and pos-
sibly science-related environmental issue regarding recycling.
In our daily travels, we couldn't help but notice the amount
of discarded furniture and other random house items strewn
about the streets and outside apartment complexes. People,
we know moving is tiring and agitating, but honestly, there
has to be a better place for a perfectly usable couch other than
- a dumpster. Obviously you're strapped for cash if you're able
to toss away an entire dining set yes, we spotted a dining
set. OK, so maybe it's not the Ethan Allen furniture set you
always wanted. If you are purchasing new furniture or home
items, donate your old ones. Some people don't even have a
stump to sit on, much less a plush couch. Here's where our
upbeat editorial takes a darker turn as we throw this waste-
not-want-not-and-don't-leave-your-once-valuables-in-
Dumpsters-when-some-have-never-even-owned-a-valuable
DART at students in the process of moving.
That raps up our simply splendid scientific edition of
Darts & Laurels. Actually, we have one more order of busi-
ness to take care of. It may not involve science, but Student
Government's plan to build a memorial for all of the students
who lost their lives during their time at UF is a Nobel-worthy
idea. SG wins this final it-may-not-be-the-discovery-of-the-
century-but-it's-worth-a-lot-more-in-our-book LAUREL for
their heartfelt efforts.

Intern in the interim, but have fun.


here's no question the job market for recent college
graduates has become increasingly competitive.
As the number of higher academic institutions in-
creases, a glut of first-year graduates floods the market
with academic talent, optimistic hopes and impressive
resumes. Where employers used to hire solely from large
schools such as UF and Florida State University, the influx
of smaller, yet qualified, schools has widened the pool of
College job recruits.
As a result, the university's classic liberal arts educa-
tion has come under tremendous pressure. Historically
perceived as the best curriculums for developing intel-
lectual capacity, many students now consider liberal arts
courses to be unproductive allocations of time. Students
would .rather take resume-building classes, computer
classes or participate in co-ops. Considering the threat of
unemployment after college, who's to blame them for try-
ing to stay ahead of the curve?
If you play your cards right, there's no reason to sacri-
fice your educational experience for the sake of mundane
vocational courses. If you want to take a philosophy class,
-you should take it. If you want to take language or his-
tory classes, take them. College is the only time in your
life when you have the chance to really think outside the
box. You deserve the freedom to take these classes, but
you should also balance them with productive activities
that will allow you better chances for landing a job after
school.
A summer internship is the absolute best oppor-
tunity college students have for hedging the threat' of
post-graduation unemployment. Freshmen, sophomores
and juniors should consider spending every summer pos-
sible developing networks in the industries that interest

them. Finance majors should work
at banks. Pre-medical students
should talk to doctors. Journalism
majors should work for maga-
zines. At the very least, students
will learn whether they really want
to go into a particular field.
Personally, I found my sum-
mer internships to be the most
beneficial experiences of my col-


lege career. As much as I love Gainesville, interning for
two summers in New York was an invaluable experience.
While living in the New York University dorms, I was able
to meet hundreds of students who were interested in my
career path. Though we all came from different schools,
we had the same interests in mind. We worked hard dur-
ing the day and enjoyed New York's nightlife when we
were done. I now have a network of friends I can count
on if I need advice as well as potential employers after I
graduate from UF
Though next summer is still a long ways off, right now
is the perfect time to start looking for an internship. Trust
me, the earlier you start to show interest, the more likely a
business will take you seriously persistence is the key.
Freshmen and sophomores might think it's a little early to
consider internships, but it isn't. A starter internship after
your freshman or sophomore year would undoubtedly
lead to a more prestigious internship after your junior
year. With the job market pressed like it is today, a strong
internship is probably the best segue into a secure job after
graduation.

umn appears on Thursdays.

Letters to the Editor
Guns not evil, people are good or evil
It is an unfortunate fact that life is what
it is and not simply what we wish it to be.
There are unstable people in this world
who are perfectly willing to injure others
for money, ideology or simply because they
don't like them. That is a simple fact, and
decrying it does not make it untrue.
The editor asks if we are prepared to take
someone's life before we begin our own I
ask, are you willing to sacrifice your own
simply because someone is willing to take
it from you?
Your life is your own the responsibil-
ity of protecting it lies with each individual.
The police will do their best to .protect citi-
zens, but they cannot be everywhere at once.
In the end, whether you become a victim is
often up to you. If you make the choice not
to become a victim, you should be allowed
to defend yourself with all the tools avail-
able to you.
The issue here is whether people trust
others to behave themselves are they
trustworthy citizens or simply members
of an unruly herd that must be controlled?
Which is it? The fact of the matter is, we're
all adults here, we should have all the rights
and inherent responsibilities that come with
adulthood. If you've gone through the legal
channels to carry a gun onpublic land, after
demonstrating operational and mental com-
petence, why should that be restricted?


The auspice of "protecting you from your
neighbors" makes about as much sense as
segregating the school so as not to "distract"
you from your studies by having mixed sex
or mixed race classes. The world doesn't
end when you cross University Avenue and
13th Street. There's no sense in pretend-
ing otherwise. By prohibiting law-abiding
citizens from exercising their rights, the very
people you want to be armed won't be if
something like Virginia Tech happens.
With a few exceptions, if you're old.
enough to go to college, you're old enough
to serve in the military. I-can guarantee you.
would be handling a gun if you chose to
enter the military. This isn't to say someone
should demand everyone go around armed.
Some people are afraid of guns, and want
no part of them. That is a personal choice
and one that I can respect, though it's not an
opinion I share. Inmybelief, someone skilled
in the use of a gun tends to have a great ap-
preciation of the damage it can do and treats
its use with due respect and responsibility.
There are exceptions to that rule, but should
we ban fast cars from campus because a few
people speed? A gun is only as good or evil
as the person holding it.

Rising cost of milk has easy solution
Recently, the price of some dairy products
has risen. It's interesting to note, as you might
have read in a recent Alligator article titled
"City Feels Dairy Prices," published Tuesday,
that organic milk might soon become compa-
rable in price to "conventional" non-organic
milk. Judging by the selection of organic pro-
duce and dairy products in the aisles of Publix
or Sweetbay, one might think of such items as
costing more because of the time and care it
takes to produce them. It probably does take
longer and require more care to turn out a
gallon of organic milk or milk from grass-fed
cows.
While special production techniques lead
to higher bills for organic milk and milk from
grass-fed cows, other economic factors in
production do make it into the price equation.
According to the Alligator article, conven-
tional milk prices are increasing because the
price of corn is increasing and the price of
transportation fuel is increasing. But not every
cost impacts the resulting tab other factors,
which economists term "externalities," never
seem to enter into the price.
Where do the externalities come in? Well,
the planting of corn and the burning of pe-
troleum for fuel cause environmental dam-
age. Corn is grown as a monoculture in this
'country with the use of fertilizer, pesticides
and herbicides and requires constant turning
of the soil. This is an unsustainable practice


that leads to pollution and soil degradation.
Burning fossil fuels to transport corn as feed
increases greenhouse gases. We pay for the
higher price of corn and gasoline each time we
buy a gallon of milk, but we seem not to pay
anything at all for soil degradation and the
wholesale dumping of toxins into groundwa-
ter as agricultural runoff. Or, rather, we don't
pay anything to ensure that the production of
milk isn't quite as environmentally degrading.
Perhaps we.should.
Determining whether such externalities
should or could be factored into the price of
conventional milk could be an economist's
entire career. But there's an easier solution in
terms of the price and of the environmental
damage.
-Cows do eat grass something we have
a lot of most of the year in Florida. If we al-
lowed them to eat grass here, we'd prevent
soil degradation, reduce agricultural pollu-
tion and save fuel. Dairy from grass-fed cows
consumed dose to where it's produced seems
much more sustainable than the current pro-
cess that delivers conventional milk.
Perhaps local production and consumption
might not be a possibility. I argue that such is
not the case. Not only is a local food economy
possible and socially responsible, but engag-
ing in one helps externalities be "internalized"
or at least be made visible to consumers.

nowhere to put their belongings or themselves, many turn to
local hotels to stay in for a few days.
--At the University Hotel, located at the corer of University
Avenue and 13th Street, many students and their parents rent
rooms for a few nights until they can get into their next abode.
Eric Villanueva, the front office supervisor for the hotel, said
he sees many students staying in the rooms around this time
of year.
"I've seen about a dozen today, but that's not really a lot,"
he said.
Many students come in with clothes, but big items such as
couches can be spotted in the parking lot, Villanueva said.
McCarty said he will probably have to get a hotel for his
homeless duration, but he's clueless about what to do with his
furniture. Many of his boxes can be stored in his Jeep Cherokee,
but his bed, couches, desk and tables will probably have to be
stored at a friend's house, he said.
S"Moving is expensive enough," he said. "By the time you
pay first month's rent, last month's rent and a security deposit,
it's annoying to have to pay for a hotel and storage, too."

andgives users easy access to useful

"The 2007 version is more user-

said Puneet Kankaria, 23, who works
part time in the CIRCA Lab.
But the differences between the
two versions already have students
and faculty running for help. Once
they get past the bold colors and ani-
mated graphics, there are three main
problems users face, Kankaria said.
"Initially, the students can't find
the file menu," he said. "Then they
can't find the margins or the line
spacing, and they don't understand
how to print."
Two weeks after the lab's com-
puters were updated, instructional

stations to help users.
CIRCA employees have been up-

mer. The upgrade requires between

rial, but we haven't made a decision

Online auction program succeeds in revising, recycling unwanted office items


AUCTIONS, from page 1


nucleic workstations will wait for two weeks
while being ogled by other UF staff, who
can claim items for use in their departments
without paying a penny.


After two weeks, the leftover auction
items are available for nonprofit groups to
pick up, also for free. After that, if an item
has yet to be acquired by anyone, it can be
posted online for auction, said Jobes. There
are exceptions, however. They are restricted
by the Food and Drug Adminstration and


the Department of Homeland Security as
to what and to whom they can sell. Not
just anyone can walk out with a laser, for
example.
Computers are another story. They sell
quite a few of them, said David. Dykes, one
of a small army of property managers at


Asset Management. Even so, only 7 percent
of the 6,525 items they received last year
were sold online. As a result, Jobes said the
department does not make enough money to
cover its costs.
"The state has to absorb a good portion of
our salaries," she said.

Shark Week causes students to celebrate, improvise


About 20 million people will
watch one of the world's dead-
liest creatures tear across their
TVs this week on the Discovery
Channel's 20th annual Shark
Week.
Seven days of sharks will give
students an excuse to glue them-
selves to the television.
"The main reason I think
sharks are so interesting is the
variability of the unknown," said
Rebecca Silber, 23, a member of
UF's Theatre Strike Force. "You
never know what's going to hap-
pen:"
Silber's not alone, according
to Facebook. As of Aug. 1, Shark
Week was mentioned on 100 pro-
files and 134 groups and inspired


17 events.
George Burgess, the director
of the Florida Program for Shark
Research at the Florida Museum
of Natural History and foremost
national shark attack investiga-
tor, shared his knowledge on two
Shark Week programs: "Ocean of
Fear" and "Perfect Predators."
These "perfect predators"
inspired Theatre Strike Force to
make Shark Week the subject
of its last show of the summer
semester.
The ampullae of Lorenzini
allow sharks to sense the subtle'
electric pulses made by the
muscles of their prey, said Jeff
Quintana, 24, a member of UF's
Theatre Strike Force.

A great white, much like the kind seen on Shark Week on Discovery Channel this week, bares its teeth.


"There really are no other ani-
mals that strike fear in people the
way sharks. do," he said.
They've been around for
hundreds of millions of years, so
they have perfected some things,
Burgess said.
Sharks' senses of sight, smell,
sound, hearing, taste and even
electromagnetic fields are far
more advanced than humans a
shark can smell one drop of blood
in an Olympic-size pool.
Burgess said he hopes Shark
Week will reveal why sharks are
such fascinating and effective
predators.
"(Discovery Channel) prob-
ably wanted to expand their
target demographic from people
who enjoy watching the mating


habits of Galapagos tortoises to
people who enjoyed carnage and
dismemberment," Silber said.
Regardless of how it started,
the Discovery Channel has con-
tinued to attract Shark Week
viewers for 20 years.
"Ocean of Fear" kicked off the
week Sunday night with a re-en-
actment of the sinking of the USS
Indianapolis on July 30, 1945,
in the Philippine Sea. Richard
Dreyfuss, who played Matt
Hooper in "Jaws," narrated it.
According to the Discovery
Channel Web site, of the 1,196-
man crew aboard, about 900 sail-
ors had to fend-for themselves
in the water after being maimed
and burned by the sinking of
their ship.
They "floated helplessly for
four days, beset by hunger, driv-
en mad by thirst and menaced by
hundreds of sharks."
The two-hour show illustrated
the plight of these Navy men and
the ferocious behavior of hungry
sharks.
Burgess examined the men
and the sharks' behavior after
the ship sank due to a Japanese
submarine attack.
He said he interviewed survi-
vors of the attack and found that
the shark attacks were blown out
of proportion.
Of the about 500 men who
died in the water in the four days
after the sinking, sharks killed
only about two or three dozen.
"The sharks acted like sharks,"
Burgess said.
They will take advantage
of any food source available to
them, he said.
However, Burgess said on av-
erage a'.out four people die from
shark actacks every year.
They don't look for humans
to eat, but they are predators,
and when people dive into their
world, they must be cautious.
What should you do?


Dance class performs as theater group in 'Vintage' show


LAINEY JOHNSON )
AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER

When Shadow Dance Theatre
presents "Vintage" on Thursday in
the Black Box Theatre at UF, themes
of beauty will grace the stage.
- "Vintage puts the origins of
attractiveness into motion to pose
the question of what makes some
things magnificent," said Sasha
Jimenez, a UF student and dancer
in "Vintage."
"Vintage," a dance performance
that includes acting, was directed
and conceived by Ric Rose, an as-
sociate professor of dance.
He has directed past UF perfor-
mances, including "Dance 2006"
and "Raven Lake," Jiminez said.
Shadow Dance Theatre is a
dance company composed of stu-


dents in DAA4920, a course that
meets weekdays for four hours at
a time. This is the company's sixth
season.
If students sign up for the
course, they automatically become
part of Shadow Dance Theatre, said
Sarah Modell, production coordi-
nator for the show.
This summer's company also
includes graduate students, under-
graduate students, faculty and staff
of the UF School of Theatre and
Dance, a total of 14 dancers.
"On the first day we met, Ric
made it very clear we are members
of Shadow Dance Theatre, not just
a class," said Marissa Gredler, a UF
student and dancer in the show.
"Its a collaborative effort here."
A typical day of class consists


of yoga for 45 minutes to an hour,
ballet for 45 minutes and dance
improvisation and rehearsal for
the show in the remaining time,
Gredler said.
Jiminez said

"Outlook is a
huge theme of the show," Jiminez
said. "What may be horrible to
one person may be art to someone
else."
"Vintage" is a combination of
dialogue and dance and includes


elaborate costumes and colorful
lighting, said Isa Garcia-Rose, an
adjunct professor of dance and per-
former in the show.
The set is used to represent a
vineyard, liv-
rst day we met, ing room, mu-
seum and oasis,
- it very clear we Gredler said.
Shadow Dance "I didn't even
just a class, know what I was
S getting into ini-
Iler tially," Gredler
said.
The style
of performance is modem dance,
which was developed in the early
20th century by dancers including
Loie Fuller, Isadora Duncan, Ruth
St. Denis and Martha Graham.
They wanted to -break away

from the rigid constraints of clas-
sical ballet, said Judy Skinner, an
adjunct professor of dance.
Modem dance is influenced by
ballet, generally fluid with kicks
and leaps. It is nicknamed contem-
porary dance, jazz dance, classical
jazz or modem jazz, Skinner said.
"When a dancer is learning
modem dance, they should put
themself in the mindset of what-
ever their dance is expressing,"
Gredler said.
Show times for "Vintage" are
7:30 p.m. on Aug. 2 to 4, and 2 p.m.
on Aug. 5.
Reserved tickets are $9 for stu-
dents, faculty, staff and senior citi-
zens and $13 for the general public.

In addition to the shark knowl-
edge feeding frenzy Discovery

also a special Shark Week Web

prehistoric sharks.

Burgess said he wants Shark
Week to show the public that
sharks are not to be feared but
saved.
Humans kill more than 100
million sharks, skates and rays
every year because of fishing and
habitat losses. Obviously, they
are not the predators we are,
he said.
Quintana agreed sharks
should not be killed.
"Sharks are basically like Paris
Hilton," Quintana said. "They
can be total bitches and chew you
up, but you still look at them and
say they are cool and good-look-
ing."












Online band classified Players, singers
collaborate via Web


TRACI ROSENTHAL I
AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER

The Beatles began with the ambition of
four teenage friends running through London,
in search of any old piece of music equipment
or gig opportunity they could get their hands
on.
Red Hot Chili Peppers started out in a
living room in Hollywood, where four high
school buddies tried out to perform at the
legendary Rhythm Lounge.
But not everyone is lucky enough to
grow up with incredibly talented and driven
friends, or answer the right advertisement at
the right time.
There is an answer for those who dream
of collaborating with a band and want to get
their musical juices flowing but can't seem to
gather enough talent to establish a group it
might just be a point and click away.
Bandmix.com answered thousands of mu-
sicians' woes when the Web site was launched
in 2002.
David Sales, a University of Tennessee
alumnus and music enthusiast, began the Web
site with hopes of connecting musicians and
bands to fill a need for talent.
"Entire bands have been put together
through our service," Sales said.
The site allows musicians searching for
bands or bands seeking out a single musical
talent to explore the profiles on the site and
contact anyone that sparks an interest.
Profiles are equipped to feature audio and
video clips of original music that a member
chooses to share with the Bandmix.com com-
munity. This allows musicians with similar
style and ambition to find each other and
know they are getting the real thing.
At first, Sales, an avid guitar player who
prefers acoustic folk rock music,. dabbled
with the Web site as a side project. He said he
would be happy if the Bandmix.com project
broke even.
But within just a few months, enough users
were signed up to begin matching needs all
around the country, Sales said.
Now almost 200,000 profiles are featured
on Bandmix.com, and the opportunity to
make the right musical connections seem
endless.
The Web site's recognition has spread like
wildfire and profiles can be found from musi-
cians all over the United States, Canada and
the United Kingdom.
"The popularity of the Web site has ex-
ceeded my expectations," Sales said.


In addition to bringing together talented
musicians, Bandmix.com offers a forum for its
members. All three countries are included in
the forum, he said.
Sales described his Web site as "a little com-
munity that connects people."
Spanning Continents
In five years, the site has crossed borders
and spanned oceans in order to make the
disconnected musicians of the world a well-
rounded, sharing community.
Sales, along with Internet entrepreneur
and long-time friend Robert Hart, is looking


to expand the Web site to Australia and
Spanish-speaking countries in the near future,
he said.
While the Web site offers a large variety
of musical talent, from reggae to country,
most of the music falls under the classic and
alternative rock genre. A majority of bands
created through Bandmix.com are on the level
of cover bands, and some might be regionally
known, Sales said.
Jeff Bangs, a bass player from Minnesota,
was able to reshape his band with the help of
Bandmix.com.

and play well with," Bangs said.
In less than a month, Bangs uploaded a
profile ana recruited two local guitar players
to complete his band, Electric Eye, which he
described as the nation's premiere tribute to
Judas Priest.
"The nice thing about Bandmix was that it
was easy to set up and had more details than
any other Web site," Bangssaid. "We were try-
ing to weed out the guys who wanted to be the
next Van Halen."

A Story of Success
Closer to home, the Gainesville-basedband,
Long Strange Day, is using Bandmix.com to
recruit a keyboardist that can also play guitar
and assist with backup vocals.
Long Strange Day, which band manager
Shane Sheffield describes as progressive hard
rock with bits of classic metal and psychedelic,
has such a unique sound that it is difficult to
find the perfect person to fill the void.
Sheffield, who handles all of the band's
business affairs, was searching on the-Internet
and stumbled upon Bandmix.com as a way to
connect with other local musicians.
"Bandmix is like the MySpace of the music
world," Sheffield said.
After only a couple of months with a pro-
file on the site, Long Strange Day has received
multiple contacts from local musicians around
the Gainesville area.
"Finding a musician that fits is hard. We
could go around the block and find a million
musicians in Gainesville," Sheffield said. "But
the beauty of the site is that it shows musical
influences and what type of music someone
feels comfortable playing so'we're not just
blindly interviewing."
Positive testimonies from Bandmix.com
members such as Bangs and Sheffield inspired
Sales to take his plans one step further in
December 2006.
Because of the giant success of
Bandmix.com, Sales has created another Web
site that helps bands and musicians get their
music out to the public.
Gigleader.com, which was created under
his umbrella company Echo Media Inc, gives
bands united by Bandmix.com and other inde-
pendently started bands a chance to advertise
talent on the Web.
Hopefully, this translates into getting
booked by bars, cubs and parties.
Sales created the Web site to unify talented
musicians and have fun doing, he said.
"I'm proud of bringing musicians togeth-
er," Sales said.


Poe Springs Park to host Springs Celebration on Saturday


EMILY KIRN I AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER


When Karl Dowda was 2 years
old, he learned how to hold his
breath, float and swim in the cool
green waters of a spring next to the
Santa Fe River.
He played in knee-high grass
along the banks and skipped over
beer bottles and broken glass.
Now, more than 30 years later,
Dowda is the director of his child-
hood playground, Poe Springs
Park, and the park will have its first
Springs Celebration on Saturday
with free admission for everyone.
From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., bird melo-
dies will be replaced with bluegrass
music. The air will smell of barbecue
and burgers, and largemouth bass
will be scared away when the first
belly flop rumbles the water.

Festival aims to unite a community of artists, crafty folk


KRISTEN ABDULLAH 0
AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER
Gainesville is full of creative
minds. Hang out at a local cafe,
bar or restaurant to experience
one of the many makeshift galler-
ies around town.
Yet many local artists agree
something is still missing from
this teeming art scene: community.
For many young, hopeful artists,
community is as important as in-
dividualism in any art form.
But unless you are a fine
arts student at .UF, collabora-
tion with other Gainesville
residents can be difficult.
Four young artists realized this
when they attended the Grandma
Party in Orlando, an experimen-
tal art festival comparable to a


small-scale version of the annual
Renegade Craft Fair in Chicago.
Local crafterss at the Grandma
Party sold silly items such as
knitted udder warmers and vinyl
doughnuts.
Now Vanessa Crook, Thomas
Callihan, Tammer Hijazi and-
Emily Joiner are spreading
that experience with Mamaw
Menagerie in Gainesville, which
will be held Saturday at the
Second Street Bakery, 1511 NW
Second St.
"The potential for it in
Gainesville is greater because we
already have somewhat of a com-
munity established, but we don't
have that transient community
that Orlando has because this is a
college town," said Crook. "There
are all these people our age that


don't have a place to expose
themselves as artists or crafters."
The festival will feature an assort-
ment of artists, crafters, bands
and entertainers for all ages.

Callihan said, "but At firs

"(Vendors) are the reason why
this is happening," Crook said.
"We couldn't do it without all the
people who create crafts."

themed nights


Saturday at Market Street Pub now a dancers' haven


KATIE COUVILLON )
AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER

The pink-and-white fliers float-
ing around Gainesville promise $3
well drinks, $5 Jager Bombs and
"the best house tunes this side of
the galaxy."
The venue: Market Street Pub,
120 SW First Ave.
Formerly Goth Night with
DJ Raven, Saturdays .now fea-
ture eclectic DJ duo Deep Space
Sleaze.
"We want to get the word
out that it's not Goth Night any-
more," said Amanda Mears, bar-
tender and manager. "We needed
something more mainstream for
Saturday that will bring people
out to dance."
Deep Space Sleaze, formed
by Dylan Rose, 24, and Steve
Wanders, 22, spins high-energy


dance songs, often combining
the hottest hip-hop songs with
thumping techno beats, Rose
said.
The duo began playing at
Market Street on July 7, but the
crowds were smaller than Mears
anticipated.
"We haven't had our usual
turnout for the first couple shows
because of the summer break and
last weekend's rain," she said.
"But Deep Space Sleaze's music
creates an atmosphere that will
bring people in."
Market Street is also throwing
its first-ever foam party in August
to bring recognition to the show.
Although the flier says Deep
Space Sleaze plays house music,
Rose doesn't like to be boxed into
any genres.
"I think a lot of people are
turned off by the words dance,


house and techno," he said.
"We're trying to create a new
thing with our music by mixing
genres and incorporating fresh
and exciting sounds."
It was this sordid selection of
sounds that inspired the duo's
imaginative.name..
"Deep Space" refers' to the
sleek, futuristic and often robotic


music the duo
plays. But when
it incorporates
a darker, dirtier
mix of sounds,
that's where
you find the
"sleaze," Rose
said.
Tabitha
Vigliotti, 23, has
been to Market
Street several
times, but Deep


Space Sleaze's show was her first
Saturday at the nightclub.
"I never went to Goth Night,
and I think it was a good idea to
change it," she said. "What they're
doing now is more progressive,
and it fills a musical niche that's
been neglected in Gainesville."
Vigliotti said she also appreci-
ated Deep Space Sleaze's high


level of audience participation.
"You can tell they want the
crowd to have a good time," she
said. "I danced the whole time
because I never got bored. I only
stopped to get drinks."
Deep Space Sleaze plays at
about 10 p.m. every Saturday in
Market Street's dance room, while
karaoke is featured in the lounge.

New rule rouses mixed feelings in SEC


FOOTBALLfrom page 27

more like 10 to 15 yards of field position because
that.kickoff return is going t6 create a lot more
space."
UF coach Urban Meyer said he expects the
average kickoff to land at about the 9-yard line as
opposed to about the 4-yard line.
"I think you might see better personnel on
kickoff," Meyer said. "You might see more start-
ers. You might see better schemes... You have to
have a horse to kick that thing out of the end zone

Brooks believes teams may be forced to resort
to "gimmicks" on kickoff coverage, claiming there
may be an increase in squib and pooch kicks.
"There may be some people that decide they
want to kick it out of bounds and give it to the
team on the 35-yard line rather than kicking it
deep and having a return out to the 40 or 45," he
said.
Last year's clock rules which started the
game dock upon the.kicker's contact with the
ball on kickoffs and prompted the dock to run on
a change of possession were eliminated after
coaches complained the rules cut down the game
by too many plays.'
Auburn coach Tommy Tuberville was part


of the committee that enacted last year's rule
changes as well as the changes for the upcoming
season.
Tuberville is pleased with the changes and
thinks they'll speed things up without detracting
very much from the quality of the game.
Still, some coaches have already spoken out
against the rule changes.

"I think you might seebetter per-
sonnel on kickoff. You might see
more starters. You might see better
schemes."
Urban Meyer
UF coach

"We want to save five minutes, and I don't
know what the reason behind it is," Mississippi
State coach Sylvester Croom said, "I'd just like to
see us take five minutes off the halftime and quit
messing around with the game."
Vanderbilt coach Bobby Johnson said the
kickoff rule may ultimately turn out to be coun-
terproductive.
"The rationale was to speed up the game,"
Johnson said. "It's not going to speed it up be-
cause there are going to be a lot more kickoffs."


Defender dreams of titles, World Cup


SOCCER, from page 27

laughed. "But they don't mean
it, they're just joking around."
Booth gained valuable ex-
perience during her time away
from UF, where she competed
in 15 complete matches for the
Canadian National Team.
Recently, at the 2007 Pan
American Games, she helped
her home country win a
Bronze medal.
"Playing at the intera-
tional level is something you
can't get at a training session,"
she said. "It's a completely dif-
ferent caliber of play. You're
competing against some of the


376-0953


best players in the world."
Booth believes her time in
Canada will help her bring
her collegiate game to the next
level.
"I'm hop-
ing that it
will transfer
over here,"
she said.
"That would
definitely be
nice."
Booth The style
of play in
international competition is
very different from college,
she said.
Aside from the tempo and
quality of players, Canadian
players also tend to be a little


offensive.
"Canada likes to kick the
ball," she said. "When I say
kick the ball, I mean we don't
like to pass. Here at Florida,
it's more like tic-tac-toe soccer,
you get to pass it around and
be creative. It's pretty soccer."
Returning to UF will al-
ways be in the back of her
mind, but for now Booth will
look to fulfill one of her life-
long goals.
"It's every young soccer
player's dream to win a World
Cup, play in the Olympics and
then come back here and have
the possibility of winning a
national championship," she
said. "I just think it would be
awesome."

out-of-conference opponents. The
record: 25-12. Doesn't seem too bad,
but then again, I'm not sure losses
to San Jose State, Navy and Hawaii
should be overlooked.
The SEC, in contrast, played 59
games, posting a 48-11 record. In ad-
dition, out of the 10 losses, eight of
the teams finished in the Top-25.
So, to sum that up quickly: I'm
glad the PAC-10 plays such tough
opponents, but at least the SEC beats
the teams they're supposed to.
As I promised, let's get away
from statistics for a little while. Let's
point out some obvious points that
won't make your head spin.
I'm not going to debate USC's
greatness. They deserve everything
they've earned all the recogni-
tion, all the hype.
This team is that talented and
deserves to stand among college
football's elite. I think they would
fare well in the SEC, but one thing
is for certain: A season in the South
would have the Trojans a little more
weathered come January.
The problem with the PAC-10
and USC is simple. In that confer-
ence, they stand above everyone
else.
I don't care what the California
locals tell you, it's not even dose.
It's USC and then its everyone else.
Forget Cal, and don't mind UCLA,
even though they will always be
heroes in my book. These great ri-
valries are just games to see if USC
chokes; they aren't yearly toss-ups
like UF vs. Tennessee, or LSU vs.
Auburn.
In the SEC, you have several
teams worthy of being No. 1.
I can count six, maybe even sev-
en teams if you add South Carolina.
(Eight if you believe in Nick Saban).


_Just put it this way: If Georgia
won the SEC, would it be nearly as
shocking as Washington pulling out
the PAC-10 crown?
I didn't think so.
Let's look at coaches. PAC-10:
Pete Carroll.
SEC, well, where do we begin?
Urban Meyer, Steve Spurrier, Nick
Saban, the list could go on, but why
rub it in their faces?
Just look at recruiting. According
to Scout.com, the SEC had five of
the top-10 incoming classes in 2007.
The PAC-10 fielded only two, with
the second being Oregon at No. 9,
a team that should be discounted
based solely on the sheer pain they
cause when looking directly at their
uniforms.
In fact, the conference only had
two teams in the top-25, meaning it
was more appealing to play for Ron
Zook than in the PAC-10.
Let's look at bowl games. The
SEC went 6-3, which included UF
winning a national championship
and LSU thrashing Notre Dame.
The PAC-10 went 3-3, with Hawaii
blowing out Arizona State and
mighty BYU hammering Oregon
38-8.
Look, the argument is a compel-
ling one, it really is. But if you want
to really compare, just drop both
conferences' top teams, meaning
USC and right now, LSU. Now, take
a look: Is the PAC-10 even worth
paying attention to anymore?
I'm tired of hearing the PAC-10
complain about TV exposure.
They should be thankful they
can hide behind ignorant opinions.
If the PAC-10 were in the living
room of every fan like the SEC is, I
don't think we would be having this
argument. We would just agree the
PAC-10 is a lot cooler than Arena
Football.
Now, let's just begin the season
and stop all this useless banter.

NCAA pushes back kickoff position

* THE BALL WILL BE MOVED TO
THE 30-YARD LINE.

By BRYAN JONES

When the NCAA scrapped the new dock
rules it instituted prior to last season, it ap-
peared as if their obsession with shortening
game times was put on hold.
It wasn't.
In a second effort to cut down on the
length of games, the NCAA has decided
to push back the placement of the ball on
kickoffs from the 35-yard line to the 30-yard
line.
In addition, the play dock will be re-
duced from 25 seconds to 15 seconds fol-
lowing a television timeout.
Southeastern Conference
coaches at last week's SEC
Media Days were emphatic
Football about the impact of the new
kickoff rule.
"(The kickoff rule) is going to be one of
the most significant rule changes to come
about in recent years, maybe in a decade,
Sin college football," Kentucky coach Rich
Brooks said. "Very few teams will have a
guy who can kick it into the touchback area
or out of the end zone."
Georgia coach Mark Richt said his team
only returned about 25 percent of kickoffs
last season, but he expects his team to return
75-90 percent of kicks this year.
"I wouldn't say it's doubly important,"
Richt said. "It's probably going to be three
or four times as important.
"You think if you move the ball back
five, you're probably going to get five more
yards of field position. My guess is it willbe

UF 7` ...

Booth to boost Gators in new season


By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
dklein@alligator.org

Play hard. Play smart. Play together.
Outlined in large letters on the far
right side of the field, these are the three
sentiments driving the UF women's soc-
cer team.
When senior defender Melanie Booth
arrived at the team's practice facility
Wednesday, she wore a familiar blue jersey
with the customary No. 13 on the back.
The third sentence of the sign stands
out like pink at a funeral, the three-time
All-American hasn't played a minute for
the Gators since 2005.
But Booth is back at least for now.


She is simply making a pit stop on her
way to China, where she will represent her
home country, Canada, in the 2007 FIFA
Women's World Cup.
"It's always a tough decision to
split time between two teams."
Melanie Booth
senior defender/All-American

Booth is set to return to the Gators
lineup by at least the fourth weekend of
the season.
Booth chose to redshirt the 2006 season
due to her commitment to the Canadian
National Team.
The decision to leave UF for a year was


difficult, she said, but one she felt was
necessary.
-"It's always a tough decision to split
time between two teams," she said. "But
I believe I made the right decision. If I had
stayed last season, it would have been too
hard to come in and out of the season, be-
cause I would have still been playing with
Canada. Now I can miss the first month,
but when I'm back, I'll be back for good."
Booth said she kept in touch with
her teammates throughout the year, us-
ing Internet tools such as Facebook and
e-mail. This didn't save the senior from
some playful criticism when she returned.
"They like to bother me about it," she

SEC vs. PAC-1O,

no argument

necessary

s the college football season draws
near, many of the game's most re-
spected pundits and so-called schol-
ars have begun to stir. A topic so heavy in
debate has hit home for Gators fans, as the
never-ending squabble that is the Pac-10
Conference vs. the SEC continues to rage.
It all began when LSU coach Les Miles
took some shots at the high and holy institu-
tion of Southern California. He simply said
he would love a chance to play the Trojans,
and then he called their schedule a cake-
walk.
His comments
made a lot of people
angry, but for the
most part just got ev-
eryone talking. And
an argument that
Danny Klein seems to be worth
Klein Drive debating should
dklein@alligator.Qrg really be sent to the
cellar.
I'm tired of this argument. For PAC-10
fans, it leans on the shoulders of statistics,
which are great if you play fantasy football,
but useless if you really pay attention.
But hey, if you hate defense, maybe the
PAC-10 is for you.
So let's tackle this question once and for
all, shall we?
Let's begin with what the PAC-10 have
going for them. (Or at least what they're
saying).
This year, teams around the nation are
allowed to play 12 games, which for most
means adding some horrid squad like
Western Carolina to the schedule.
However, in the PAC-10, the programs
are now going to play nine conference
games, allowing every team to play each
other at least once.
Congratulations, maybe now we'll forget
you don't have a conference title game. Not
likely. In fact, this game may be a-welcome
scenario to the teams out west. Try this one
out for keeps: USC vs. Oregon State, Round
2: The nation's best program gets to avenge
a loss to a program that I promise you at
least according to ESPN's Mark May is on
the rise.
Every year, the PAC-10 boasts an impres-
sive out-of-conference schedule. This I agree
with, but there's one little problem here
they don't exactly stomp the competition.
Last year, the PAC-10 faced off against 37
