Gators pummel overmatched Hilltoppers
Casey Brooke Lawson, Alligator
UF quarterback Tim Tebow is launched into the air after having his legs taken out from under him during
the Gators' 49-3 victory against Western Kentucky on Saturday.
* THE GAME WAS CUT
SHORT DUE TO LIGHTNING.

What the Gators learned from
their first game:
It's a good thing they didn't
schedule Appalachian State.
The Southeastern Conference has
strict lightning-delay rules.
Tennessee won't be this easy.
No. 6 UF blew out the Western
Kentucky Hilltoppers 49-3 in its af-
ternoon jamboree, er, season opener
Both teams agreed to call the
game after a 62-minute lightning de-
lay stopped it with 8:23 remaining in
the fourth quarter.
The Gators were one of many
top-25 teams who opened with a
gimme' game this week and put up
lopsided results, with Michigan's
stunning loss against. Appalachian
State being the outlier.
With 15 new starters, however,
they needed a softee.
"There's times where you don't
need a game like that," UF coach
Urban Meyer said. "We needed that
game with all those young players."
The highlights included a pair
of 100-yard receiving performances
- courtesy of Andre Caldwell and
Riley Cooper a career day for
running back Kestahn Moore (16
carries for 91 yards and two scores)
and some late-game experience for a
touted freshman class.
Quarterback Tim Tebow im-
pressed in his first start, completing
13-of-17 passes for 300 yards and
three touchdowns in a little more
than three quarters of action.

Some UF colleges rank high
By JENNIFER BINGAMAN
While UF has slipped to No. 17 in the
rankings, some of its individual schools and
degree programs, such as accounting and en-
gineering, consistently rank among the best.
In the 2008 edition of U.S.News & World
Report's "America's Best Colleges," schools
within the Warrington College of Business
Administration were listed among the top 10
for public universities.
The marketing school ranked sixth and the
Fisher School of Accounting ranked 10th.
Dominique DeSantiago, an associate direc-
tor of the Fisher School of Accounting, said
the faculty, students and the support from
alumni and friends are the three reasons
why the accounting program ranks among

Republicans' 'PETA' barbecue met with little protest
By DEVIN CULCLASURE
UF students gathered on the
Plaza of the Americas on Friday to
enjoy some down-home cooking
and poke fun at a controversial ani-
mal rights organization.
UF's College Republicans hosted
the "P.E.T.A. BBQ," in honor of
"People Eating Tasty Animals."
The name of the event is a play
on the letters of the national orga-
nization called PETA, which stands
for People for the Ethical Treatment
Members of College Republicans
served free chicken, pulled pork,
baked beans and coleslaw from
David's Real Pit BBQ to about 100
students, said Josh Simmons, execu-
tive director of the organization.
Simmons said the group spent
about $500 on the food to reach out
to students, especially freshmen
"who think our campus is a liberal
"A lot of new students have
heard for their whole lives that
college campuses are universally
liberal," he said.
Friday was the fourth time
College Republicans have held the
event. Simmons said he would like
to barbecue each semester.
Students, especially those who
consider themselves animal-rights
activists, don't understand how
radical PETA is, Simmons said.
"Ingrid Newkirk, a cofounder
and president of PETA, has com-
pared eating meat to the holocaust
and said the human race is a cancer
on the earth," Simmons said.
"We didn't have a single
person heckle us, which
was kind of disappointing"
executive director of UF's College
Overall, there was a lack of con-
troversy and protest, he said.
"We didn't have a single person
heckle us, which was kind of disap-
pointing," he said.
UF freshman and self-described
Republican Jeff Ivey said the barbe-
cue was a relief.
"I was hoping there would be a
bulwark of conservative students
here," he said.
At the western end of the Plaza,
about 100 students waited in line for
Hare Krishna lunch.
Kala Kantha, who helped serve
vegetarian lunches to students, said
the barbecue was disappointing.
"It's sad that people are so desen-
sitized to the suffering of others,"
Free class set to discuss issues and social problems
* A UF DOCTORAL STUDENT
CREATED THE COURSE.
By YVONNE AYALA
Alligator Contributing Writer
There is one class students can still sign
up for even though Drop/Add has closed.
It won't cost anything, but it won't
count for credit either.
David Reznik, a doctoral student in
the sociology department at UF, will be.
holding the first class of Social Problems
and Solutions on Thursday on the Plaza of
the Americas. Reznik said the class is de-
signed to address and promote discussion
of issues of activism, politics and public
culture on the local level.
Reznik said he designed the organiza-
tion like any UF class, with two sections
to meet most students'
UF availability. The syllabus
Academics includes discussion top-
ics such as capitalism
and heterosexism, which is discrimination
based on sexual orientation.
Reznik taught a Sociology of Religion
class offered last year, but he said during
the summer he was notified that his teach-
ing duties for the 2007-2008 academic year
were suspended. He said he introduced
Social Problems and Solutions to keep a
free exchange of ideas on campus.
"I'm hoping to foster a public culture
at UF, political discussions, activism and a
sense of community," Reznik said.

First game memorable for freshman
Editor's Note: This is the final
story in a series on the Gator
By ANDREW GASDICK
Alligator Contributing Writer
As she entered Ben Hill Griffin
Stadium on Saturday, Scarlet
Basler stared in awe at the crowd
of about 90,000.
"I'd never been to a college
football game, much less a Gators
game," she said later.
The moment did not last long
for her. She had a job to do.
She and the other members
of the "Pride of the Sunshine"
Fighting' Gator Marching Band
were charged with entertaining
the sweating spectators.
The first game of the Gators
football season would be Basler's
first public college performance.
The freshman sousaphone
player had only had a handful
of rehearsals and a week of band
camp to practice with her new in-
strument before the first game.
She had to reschedule her
classes to make time for practice
but said it was easy to balance the
two because she didn't have much
homework the first week.
After summer band camp and
preseason rehearsals, Basler had
learned' most of the music and all
of the marching for the show.
Basler reviewed her, music'
and marching moves during the
band's pre-game rehearsal. The
repetition, helped ease her anxiety
about her first college halftime
But her worries quickly re-
turned when her director told
band members they would not
be able to use their music during
the performance. For Basler, this
meant marching from memory.
She wondered whether she
would be able to remember where
to move during the show.
. Basler had dealt with high
temperatures before, but she had
never been tested by the heat in
front of such a large crowd.
For halftime, the band played
songs with heat-related themes
and wore light, cooler uniforms.
The band wore white baseball
caps, blue polo shirts and khaki
"It's fun, and it's a nice
thing to be part of such
a big group with so many
good people in it."
UF sousaphone player
Basler marched in time with
the band, helping to form intricate
designs and adding the sound of
her sousaphone to her section's as
the show began.
They played songs including
"The Heat is On," "Hot Hot Hot"
and "Walking on Sunshine." It
was difficult to tell Basler apart
from the veterans around her.
After the band left the field,
Basler said she was pleased with
"It's fun, and it's a nice thing to
be part of such a big group with so
many good people in it," she said.

Since the start of snook open-

"They strike hard, they

"They're very, very sporty."
FWC spokesman Lee
Schlesinger said people are al-
lowed to fish for snook year-
round, but they can only be
caught and released during
the off-season. About 90 per-
cent of snook caught in Florida
are released back in the water,
The open season ends Dec.

ing to an FWC press release.
The seasons exist because
snook spawn and increase their
populations during the sum-

snook grow lethargic and can't
fight back, Schlesinger said.
He said snook populations
have been under protection
since 1957, and the population of
snook is considered healthy and

Green for Green
State grant pays for
T hanks to a UF microbiologist, Florida and the rest of
the nation may soon be greener.
Lonnie Ingram has developed a technique for creat-
ing ethanol using a harmless strain of E. coli. Unlike most
U.S.-produced ethanol, which is brewed from corn, Ingram's
method uses the bacteria to break down plant waste into cel-
lulose sugar, which can then be converted into ethanol. He's
been working on this method since the oil crisis in the 1970s.
Ethanol is a carbon-neutral fuel because the carbon di-
oxide it gives off when it burns is balanced by. the carbon
dioxide it absorbed as it grew.
By now, we all know that ethanol is one of the most plau-
sible ways we can combat climate change. But one of the
biggest questions is how we can produce it more efficiently.
It's great to be at a university where such important environ-
mental advances are being made.
Most ethanol-production methods are most effective
using corn or sugar, and the Unitec States produces most
of its ethanol from corn. Of course, corn and sugar have to
grow before they can be harvested, but there is an almost
endless supply of plant waste tree trimmings, yard clip-
pings, dead leaves and the like. Earlier this year, U.S. Deputy..
Energy Secretary Clay Sell even went as far as to say the fu-
ture of biofuels is cellulosic ethanol, not corn.
Gov. Charlie Crist stopped by UF on Friday to praise
Ingram's research and gave him a $20 million grant to con-
tinue his research. Ingram is searching for a way to speed up
the process of converting the plant waste into sugars.
But something Ingram said caught our attention: All cars
can use a 10 percent ethanol-blended fuel, called E10, but the
United States doesn't produce enough ethanol for us to use
this blended fuel. Ingram's method can help change that, and
his method could replace half of the country's automotive
fuel. It's unfortunate that more cars don't already run on this
We must give UF due praise for taking other steps to en-
courage ethanol use, including opening the state's first etha-
nol filling station a year ago. UF has also purchased several
hybrid and ethanol vehicles.
Hopefully, Ingram's work can increase ethanol use at
UF and throughout Florida. According to the Florida Solar
Energy Center, Florida has more registered cars per capital
than any other state. If Florida could produce enough etha-
nol to fuel all its cars with an E10 blend, our state would save
750 million gallons of gasoline per year. And that's just the
As more ethanol is produced and more hybrid and flex-
fuel cars take to the roads, we will need less polluting gas.
Flex-fuel cars can run on a blend of 85 percent ethanol, 15
percent gasoline. The United States has a lot of catching up to
do with Brazil, where about 70 percent of cars use ethanol fu-
els. But politics often get in the way. The Florida Summit on
Global Climate Change held this summer where Ingram
was a panelist worked to reverse this problem.
Crist and California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger are
working together to reduce greenhouse-gas and vehicle
emissions, something ethanol could be crucial for. As coastal
states, Florida and California will be among the first to feel
the effects of global warming rising sea levels, more
storms and hurricanes and higher temperatures (as if it could
get any hotter).
Increased ethanol production is a great step toward en-
ergy independence and environmentally friendly fuels. We
won't magically be driving ethanol-fueled cars overnight,
but we're getting closer, and every bit of research helps. Like
Crist said, UF's colors may be orange and blue, "but there's
some green in there, too."

STEAK w/ HOTDOG
COLLEGE REPUBLICANS: PROMOTING DIVERSITY BY GRILLING IT
Brand names infiltrate modern culture
hink about your brand. What company's prod-
ucts are you absolutely in love with? The average
American uses hundreds of brands and actually
considers a few to be representations of his or her per-
sonality. Wearing nothing but Hollister, going to Taco
Bell every Saturday at 3 a.m., religiously watching
"Desperate Housewives" and even calling yourself a
Gator are examples of brand loyalty.
Branding is a tricky business. There are entire entities,
known as brand consulting firms, devoted to the attain-
ment of a positive brand image. Companies hire firms
to ensure the name of the company is never stuck on the
tip of a consumer's tongue. A brand should be an experi-
ence, a memory immediately recalled when the product
or company is mentioned. -
A ludicrous as this "experience" may sound, brands
are big business. The Coca-Cola Co. was worth $100
billion as of March 2006, according to the book "What
Sticks" by Rex Briggs and Greg Stuart. Its factories, the
secret recipe and all other tangible items make up about
$33 billion. The other $67 billion represents the feelings
associated with drinking a Coke: Its logo, colors and the
shape of the bottle are essentially worth $67 billion dol-
It's even more than the name branding is every-
thing having to do with .perception. Consider Hollister
- the scent you notice when you walk past the store
is unmistakable. Hollister pumps fragrance into the
air because scent is closely tied to memory. Consumers
are more likely to remember how they felt shopping at
Hollister with more than sight memories to rely upon.
Sound is another crucial element when determining
-the future course of a brand. Pop culture has absorbed
the familiar chime of Intel, and our Gator Growl buddy
Jim Gaffigan has proven the wonders of Hot Pockets and
razors produced "By Mennen."
Most importantly, a brand's
various advertisements and pro-
,motions must be congruous with
..--.' its message. Seeing a burly man
wearing jean shorts and drinking
a Cosmopolitan doesn't exactly
Kyle Cox make' sense. This discrepancy is
representative of challenges fac-
email@example.com ing branders. "Iron Chef" isn't
sponsored by Hostess Cupcakes
for the same reason the people at Mattel haven't created
It may not be obvious, but even our alma mater is a
brand. The Gators brand (much classier than Ohio State's
"Best Damn Brand in the Land") is one of the best-selling
collegiate names in America. It has the makings of a su-
per-brand: ultra-recognizable logos and colors, various
theme songs and long-standing traditions. I'm just glad
we don't have a trademarked smell it would likely be
a combination of the Bat House and Lake Alice.
I own Gators shirts, gym shorts, golf balls, hats, drink-
ware and even a guitar with a giant Gator logo stamped
on it. Universities are lucky to have the strongest brand
loyalty of any organization in America. A fire builds
inside a Gators fan when he or she see a Florida State
University license plate or a scary-looking Tennessee fan.
In what other business do consumers not only hate com-
peting brands but actually hang them in effigy?
Brands are part of everyday life because they help us
show the world who we really are. Without brands, we
wouldn't have a way of distinguishing quality goods
from everything else. When companies represent our
needs by making decent products, we're more than
proud to represent them.

I work for Student Government
Bike Repair, and I would like to
offer some additional informa-
tion regarding the bike shop and
some advice about what students
can do to help keep their bicycles
We are understaffed. We are
Andrew Lohaus working to

Speaking Out mechanics
as needed to
keep the shop open every day from
10 a.m. to 4 p.m. This would mean
an increase in service since there
were times when all three mechan-
ics were in class simultaneously.
The first few weeks of fall are
the busiest time of the year for us.
Students have new bikes that need
to be tuned up, or they want to re-
suscitate old bikes they neglected all
summer. While we always strive to
do quality work, we are also trying
to help as many students as possible.
I apologize to any students who may
have felt neglected or were asked to
come back for time-consuming re-
pairs so we could work through the
line. Though students sometimes
have to wait for our help, we are
often faster than other shops, which
may need to keep bikes overnight
for the necessary repairs.
Students can do a few things to
keep their bikes out of the shop and
running smoothly. Rust destroys
bikes, so do whatever you can to
keep your bike out of the rain. If
your bike must stay outside, spray
it down with a water displacer, such
as WD-40 or GT85, whenever it gets
wet. We have spray bottles of oil you
can help yourselves to whenever the
shop is open.
Keeping your tires properly in-
flated is the best way to prevent them
from going flat and makes your bike
ride feel as fast and smooth as pos-
sible. Our air compressor is left on
at all times except during semester
breaks so students can always get
air for their tires. Just be careful you

onds at a time, checking often until
the tire feels firm but not rock-hard
when squeezed by hand. Road tires
can be filled until air stops flowing
through the hose.
Since the parts we have on hand
are the only limit to repairs we can
do, donating an old bicycle you no
longer ride is a great way to help
stock the repair shop. Instead of
abandoning your bike in the bike
racks where it detracts from the
beauty of our on-campus, give us
your old bike. The parts are greatly
appreciated and will help keep your

Part of the reason may be that
some local bars and restaurants hike
their driik prices during football

game takes place, establishments
including The Swamp Restaurant,
Gator City and Balls begin altering
their menus or increasing their alco-

The Swamp Restaurant offered
a limited menu Saturday, which
consisted of popular items that were
faster to prepare, such as burgers and
salads. The food prices remained the
same, and the limited menu appears
only on home game days.

as well as increasing its drink prices.
Balls usually only charges entry fees

Balls typically charges $2 for a
double-well drink on Friday nights.
Last Friday, the drink was $4, and on
Saturday the price jumped to $7.

tender at Gator City.
The end result was bars packed
with groups of alumni reliving the
days when they attended UF.
"Most students don't want to pay
extra to hang out with people their
parents' age," Bernstein said.
Despite the high prices, lines re-

Prof. may help boost caviar
By JENNIFER BINGAMAN
Champagne wishes and caviar dreams
may be easier to attain than ever before.
The pricey delicacy caviar has become a
reality for farmers across Florida.
Caviar could become one of the state's
most profitable exports because of Frank
Chapman, an associate professor of fisher-
ies and aquatic sciences at UF's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences.
In the last 20 years, overfishing of stur-
geon in the wild has caused the availability
of caviar to dwindle.
"We have found a way to finish the
cycle," Chapman said.
His research began in 1979, when he
was one of four graduate students at the
University of California, Davis, who pio-
neered research to farm-raise sturgeon.
He brought his knowledge to UF, giving
ossetra, beluga and sevruga sturgeon to
aquafarms across Florida.
He did this in hopes of spawning a suc-
cessful domestic caviar industry.
Gene Evans, 68, was one of the people
who cashed in on Chapman's knowledge.
He houses his sturgeon in 90,000-gallon
tanks on his farm in Pierson, Fla.
"Hopefully, we'll have some this year
if I live long enough," he said of caviar
Eventually, he anticipates up to 10 tons
Sturgeons have been known to grow
to lengths of 8 feet and can weigh 2,000
The fish have become well-known for
a tendency to leap out of the water and
Evans said the only injuries he's re-
ceived from his fish leaping out of their
tanks is the back pain he feels when he
heaves the sturgeon back into the water.
Prices vary for the fish eggs, known as
"I'm not going for glitter. I like nuts
UF associate professor
The average price for 50 grams of osse-
tra caviar is $350.
With roughly 9 million grams in one
ton, Evan's caviar harvest could sell for
about $60 million.
Evan, however, is more invested in the
meat his sturgeon will provide.
He eats it and gives the steaks out at
weddings. He expects his fish filets to re-
place the demand for swordfish, which has
declined in population in recent years.
"I'm not going for glitter," he said. "I
like nuts and bolts."

Research combines classics, computer engineering
By LIA GANOSELLIS
For a UF professor and two
graduate students, the writing
was on the wall they just had
to prove it.
Professor Robert Wagman and
graduate students Eleni Bozia
and Angelos Barmpoutis will
represent UF as they present a 3-
D reconstruction of ancient Greek
inscriptions at the University of
Oxford from Sept. 2 to Sept. 7.
The project proves that five
separate inscriptions found at the
ancient Greek site of Epidauros
were inscribed by one person
and were from the same monu-
ment, though they were found at
The three have been working
on the project since spring 2007,
although Wagman, a professor in
the classics department, has been
translating and statistically ana-
lyzing ancient Greek inscriptions
for about eight years.
Bozia, a graduate student and
instructor in the classics depart-
ment, first became acquainted
with Wagman as a student in a
few of his classes. Wagman in-
vited Bozia to assist him in his
studies on ancient inscriptions,
and the rest is history.
"With 3-D reconstruction, a
lot of details that are hard
to catch are enhanced."
The task was difficult because
thousands of years of weather-
ing can make inscriptions nearly
impossible to translate, much less
analyze, Wagman said.
That's where Bozia's husband,
Angelos Barmpoutis, came to the
rescue. Barmpoutis, a graduate
student and instructor in the de-
partment of computer ahd infor-
mation science and engineering,
was able to create a computer
program touching up the letters
of each inscription using 3-D
"With 3-D reconstruction, a lot

Meyer: Harvin may see time as kickoff return man
* MEYER WAS IMPRESSED WITH
CAL RECEIVER DESEAN JACKSON.
By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
A busy Percy Harvin lined up at wide
receiver, running back and quarterback
against Western Kentucky.
The workload could rise against Troy, as
Harvin may also return kickoffs, UF coach
Urban Meyer said Monday.
Harvin caught three passes for 53 yards
- including a 19-yard score and took
three carries for 25 yards on Saturday.
As UF's game ended early, Meyer treated
himself to watching California's DeSean
Jackson and Arkansas' Darren McFadden
play their openers.
He learned that even Heisman Trophy
candidates can be assets on special teams.
Jackson gained 66 yards on five touches
against Tennessee. He made his highlight-
reel play on a 77-yard punt return.
"He changed that whole game with the
electricity he brought," Meyer said.
As a lead blocker, McFadden helped
free Felix Jones for a 90-yard kickoff return
touchdown against Troy.
"That tells you about marquee players
doirig whatever it takes to win," Meyer said.
"Don't be surprised if you see Percy get the
ball like that."
SIX PLAYERS GRADE OUT AS
CHAMPIONS: Derrick Harvey
Football was the only defensive player
to earn Champions Club rec-
Harvey, Meyer's defensive player of the
game, registered two sacks among three
tackles against Western Kentucky.
On offense, wide receivers Andre
Caldwell (offensive player of the game)
and David Nelson joined quarterback Tim
Tebow and offensive linemen Drew Miller
and Jim Tartt on the list.
ETC: Meyer said Saturday that there is
a chance senior offensive lineman Phil
Trautwein, who is out with a stress fracture
in his right foot, could be lost for the season.
... Running back Brandon James, who sat out
the Western Kentucky game for unspecified
reasons, will be back this week and could
be one of UF's two kickoff return men. ...
Cornerback Markihe Anderson (sprained
knee) is probable for the Troy game.
Younger players vie for increased playing time

Torrey Davis has earned a little bit more time. He's as
talented as a d-lineman as we've got."
Meyer hopes he won't have to make similar lineup
chafiges in the defensive backfield.
Corners Joe Haden and Wondy Pierre-Louis
showed their inexperience in their first starts and at
times didn't have their eyes in the right places, sec-
ondary coach Chuck Heater said.
Wright replaced free safety Kyle Jackson by the
fourth series, though he made an encore appearance
Heater said Wright is pushing Jackson for playing
"He's shown us through practice and so forth that
he's earned the right to get reps," Heater said. "He has
the one component that you have to have in the back
end to be really successful, and that's making plays."
Coaches hope to welcome back No. 1 corner
Markihe Anderson with open arms this week.
Anderson missed the Western Kentucky game with a
sprained knee and is probable for Saturday.
"I'd say right now the secondary and the
interior of the defensive line, we've got to
get better at those two spots, and fast.",
After watching the defensive backs on Saturday,
Meyer hopes for an even speedier recovery.
"I'd say right now the secondary and the interior of
the defensive line, we've got to get better at those two
spots," Meyer said, "and fast."

defensive linemen and his teammates consider him the tough-
est and most competitive player on the team.
Nothing against former UF quarterback Chris Leak, but his
teammates didn't have the same things to say about him.
What's more exciting to watch than a quarterback running
over 240-pound linebackers, juking defensive backs and then
coming back to the huddle and tossing a 50-yard touchdown
But what really makes Tebow such a media darling is his
demeanor off the field.
One of my former colleagues used to joke about Leak being
a robot because of his sterile responses to the media. But, I have
to wonder if it's Tebow who is really equipped with an on/off
As soon as he removes his jersey, that aggressive mean
streak completely dissolves, and you have to question whether
you are talking to the same person.
He is soft-spoken, kind, polite, and, to be quite honest, a
little dorky; He addresses most members of the media as "sir"
and "ma'am," and he smiles so much it's like a Botox injection
Throw in the fact that he's a devout Christian who has spent
more time doing missionary work then most of us have doing
homework, and you can see what I'm getting at.
By the way, considering how much the girls love him, it's 3,
good thing Tebow has strong morals. In a given week, he prob-
ably dodges more women than he does linebackers.
Urban Meyer might claim that Cornelius Ingram is the "face
of Florida football," but once Tebow proves to his doubters that
he is legit, he will become the face of college football.
Not even Danny Wuerffel experienced the hype Tebow is
about to receive. Think Reggie Bush and Matt Leinart at USC.
I hope you like looking at Tebow, because you are going to
see his face on television screens and magazine covers an aw-

Freshmen played like fresh-
men, the interior of the defensive

The No. 6 Gators hope to
remedy these problems before
Saturday's game against Troy.

opportunity to get that first one

UF coach Urban Meyer -said.
"Everyone is settled down now,

Fourteen true freshmen

Kentucky. Some, like safety Major

and defensive tackle Torrey
Davis, earned longer looks for
more playing time. Others need
a little more seasoning.

Notre Dame bests Gators

Halted by torrential rain and spine-
tingling lightning, the UF soccer team
was forced to wait.
With only 29 minutes passed since the
start of play, Saturday's thunderstorms
forced both teams to head for shelter,
leaving the Gators to mull over the first
goal they had given up to No. 2 Notre
Dame just six and a half minutes into
After a delay of four hours and 32
minutes, the No. 13 Gators (1-1) came up
empty in arguably the team's most antici-
pated contest and took a disappointing
2-0 loss to the Fighting Irish under the
lights of James G. Pressley stadium.
The early delay did not appear to be
a factor in the loss for the Gators, who

Yes, I'm aware Tebow's 300-yard passing
performance came against a team that spent
last season as a member of Division I-AA,
but it really doesn't matter.
If Tebow can hit a wide-open receiver in
stride, as he did more than once Saturday, it
makes no difference what defense he's play-
ing against the man can pass.
Yes, other defenses will force him to
make quicker decisions and throw into
tighter spaces. However, for some reason,
Tebow's critics have spent less time ques-
tioning him in that regard and more time
critiquing his ability to throw a spiral.
Still, I guess if Tebow's high school pass-

Gators sweep Santa Clara
By PHIL KEGLER
Saturday's match against No. 19 Santa Clara
was supposed to be the toughest test so far this
season for the UF volleyball team.
Someone forgot to remind the Broncos.
No. 7 UF (5-0) controlled the match from
the beginning and never let up, defeating Santa
Clara 3-0 (30-18,30-16,30-24).
The lMBoncos (5-1) became the Gators' focus
after UF swept Georgia Southern (30-16, 30-25,
30-19) and N.C. State (30-15, 30-14, 30-21) in
Friday's portion of the Campus USA Credit
Friday's matches were an opportunity for UF
coach Mary Wise to get a lot of players into the
Sophomore Alli Cecchini served as setter in
game three of both matches, her first full games
at the position.
By Saturday it was back to all business.
Wise reminded her players before the game
of the three keys to beating good teams: passing,
