* A GRAD STUDENT IS
PETITIONING FOR THEM.
By KORI FREDERICK
Some students prefer to dry
their laundry on a clothesline
to protect against the wear and
tear of an electric dryer.
But, like anyone else who
lives on UF's campus, Ricardo
Brown-Salazar is unable to use
a clothesline to dry his clothes.
According to UF housing
regulations, drying clothes on
clotheslines, fences, breeze-
ways or on adjacent apartment
building areas is not permitted.
Brown-Salazar, a graduate stu-
dent who lives in Tanglewood
Village, believes the regulation
-contradicts the university's at-
tempts to be more environmen-
Students, are not allowed to
erect clotheslines or use solar
power to dry clothing outside
of their own living areas.
"This policy is in place for
a couple of reasons," said Rob
Holland, graduate and family
housing administrative coor-
"The primary concern is
safety. There's just so many
different. places that someone
could set up a clothesline, and
given the sheer volume of
people living here, some with
children, it's better.just to ban
them outright," Holland said.
Holland also said-the uni-
versity is concerned that if ev-
ery student wanted to put up a
clothesline, the campus would
quickly become cluttered with

of state funds
By KIM WILMATH
Five-million dollars in state funds given to
UF this summer will not only be used to finance
the salaries of the 15 new faculty members and
eight new advisers, but for upkeep at UF as
UF Provost Janie Fouke said because only $2
million are recurring state funds, they are the
only kind that could be
UF used for salaries.
Administration The new faculty
members will fill po-
sitions for high-demand courses, including
chemistry, physiology and English.
Fouke said the other $3 million could be
used for several purchases, such as start-up
payments for the hires, classroom and labora-
tory renovations, new desks, new equipment or
any other one-time expenses.
"It will be used to enhance undergraduate
education," she said.
UF will receive more money to hire 200 more
faculty and 100 more advisers once the Tuition
Differential Program kicks in next fall. The
program will allow UF to raise tuition up to 40
percent over several years.
Bars criticized for underage drinkers
By KIM WILMATH
It was no happy hour for several
Gainesville bars Wednesday.
At a meeting of the Community
Alcohol Coalition, a group created
by UF President Bernie Machen to
discourage binge drinking, the 10 bars
with the most underage-drinking vio-
lations were criticized.
Gainesville Police Department offi-
cials also announced they received an
$18,000 grant to help enforce underage
drinking deterrents, said Ron Wayne,
a UF spokesman.
The top offender was The Venue,
with 97 violations in the 2005-2006
school year and nine in the past six
months. Rue Bar came in second with
95 violations in 2005-2006 and 93 in
the past six months, said UF Dean of
Students Gene Zdziarski.
Eight Seconds had the lowest num-
ber, with 10 violations in 2005-2006
and none during the past six months.
GPD officers said they will continue
to crack down on underage drinking.
"We have no mercy," said GPD
Capt. Ed Book.
Despite the violations, cases of
alcohol misuse have decreased from
618 in the 2005-2006 school year to
477 during 2006-2007. DUI cases de-
creased from 74 to 58.
Officials said they are working
with the Florida Legislature to pass an
initiative that would require underage
DUI recipients to spend six hours in
the Shands at UP Trauma Center to see
consequences of drunken driving.
A moving information station will
-drive around downtown Gainesville
on Friday and Saturday nights to warn
about dangerous alcohol behaviors.
Signs on buses will continue to
address the dangers of alcohol abuse.
Signs boast messages like "Passing
out is humiliating" or "He slipped
something into my drink, and the next
thing I knew he was on top of me, and
I couldn't get him to stop."
On football game days, officials
from Florida's Division of Alcohol
Beverages and Tobacco, which gives
alcohol licenses, will work with
"underage operatives" to catch res-
taurants and bars serving alcohol to
people under 21.
Nick Farah, a 20-year-old computer
science junior, said, "I'm all for it,"
referring to underage drinking. "Some
of my best friends are underage alco-

SG parties play name game
* NO PARTIES HAVE CANDI-
DATES OR PLATFORMS YET.
By DEVIN CULCLASURE
It's all in a name when it comes
to political parties competing in
this fall's Student Government
SG's Elections Commission
received five complaints about
election violations Thursday,
though no political parties have
candidates or platforms yet. Four
complaints involved the use of the
Gator, Swamp and Impact party
names. One complaint prompted
the commission to hold an emer-
gency meeting Thursday evening.
Party registration had ended
Thursday at noon.
William Foster, president of the
Greek Party, told the commission
that the Gator Party name sounds
too similar to UF's Gators, which
he said suggests that the party is
sanctioned by UF.
Commissioners ruled against
Foster, allowing the party to keep
The remaining name contro-
versy revolved around students
who registered party names from
past elections, such as Impact
and Swamp, despite having no
previous involvement with those
According to election rules,
Student who used the
Government name in the
fore the current one have the first
chance to register that name again.
An additional complaint was filed
about three hours after the meet-
ing and will be resolved in another
emergency session at 8 a.m. today,
said Sarah Krantz, SG supervisor
To avoid confusion, the naming
problems must be resolved before
candidate qualification begins at 9
a.m. today, she added.

rent Swamp Party headed by Sam

6, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7,2007
We're mad. We have too much homework and too little
time to sleep. Too few beers and too little money. Not enough
clothing and no laundry money. We're pissed, and we're not
afraid to say it.
This week, the Department of Darts & Laurels might as
well be a crotchety old man you know, that bald 80-year-
old covered in liver spots who yells at those damn kids to
get off his lawn. So stay out of our way today as we vent our
frustrations in this week's furious-and-fuming edition of...
Darts &.attre s
First up, we hurl an empty-wallets-make-us-angry DART
at the bars that raise their prices on game days. Seven dollars
for a pitcher of Natural Light? You've got to be kidding us.
Only filthy-rich alumni can afford that. And if they're filthy
rich, why the hell are they buying Natty Light? Maybe they're
just trying to relive their days as college students but no
one needs to stoop to that level. Please, bars,'keep the cheap
Not just bars are guilty of game-day price gouging. We
shoot a we-spent-all-of-our-money-on-Natty-Light-so-how-
do-we-get-home-now DART to Gainesville-area cab com-
panies, which charge higher rates on game days from three
hours before until three hours after the game. Instead of charg-
ing based on how far you're driven, most of the companies
charge flat rates, whether you're going just around the block
or halfway across town. Regional Transit System buses run
infrequently to the campus area on game days if at all so
many drunken students need cabs to get them home safely.
And it's not like the cab drivers get much out of this they
don't get paid overtime. All their money comes from tips.
So the greedy companies pocket all the extra money they're
charging riders, while those doing the legwork get the short
end of the stick.
This next thing we're not really mad about. We're mostly
just confused. So here's a what-the-hell-is-going-on DART
for Student Government. The new election season is barely
underway and already the mud is being slung. The Gator,
Swamp and Impact parties all had complaints lodged against
them. And another registered party, Greek, is probably just
here to mislead everyone. Why can't we all just get along? -
Don't get us wrong no party should ever run unop-
posed, and no party should be allowed to break the rules. But
will any of this petty bickering going on right now accomplish
anything? Probably not.
What else really irks us? The fact that companies have to

intrusive. It would help out the environment, make our clothes

Swamp assigns seats for a reason
As a lifelong Gators fan and UF student,
I did not have much fun at last week's
football game versus Western Kentucky-
University. My girlfriend and I had good
seats -- about 25 rows up close to the ac-
tion with a good view. When it was time for
kickoff, everyone stood up, and a fun time
was to be had by all, right?
Not so much. Before and during the
game, people were on their cell phones,
signaling to their friends to leave their as-
signed seats from higher sections to come
down to the lower section. About five
minutes into the game, my girlfriend and I
were a row below our assigned seats, about
five seats to the left and standing sideways
with no room to maneuver not even to
do the Gators chomp.
When the rightful owners of those seats
arrived a few minutes late, they tried to
squeeze into the already-cramped spaces.
We tried to get back to our original seats,
but they had been taken. It took a nice mem-
ber of the Gainesville Police Department to
make enough room for us to actually see
the game; even then it was very cramped.
Halftime arrived, and we expected some
people to leave, giving us more breathing
room. Few did and more people were
coming down to our section. Fed up, we
left for the O'Connell Center.
Gators fans, fellow students: Please, you
have assigned seats. You can find them on
Not all students back tuition increase
It was interesting to read the Wednesday
Alligator's pro-tuition-increase editorial. I
am sure I am not the only one who found
The editorial demanded that UF wants
an increase in tuition. Who exactly is "UF,"
It is obviously not the students, the
majority of whom do not want to pay any
more money to the school than they or
their parents already do.
Some students support an increase,
but only if that money is guaranteed to be
directed toward need-based grants or new
The editorial said 12 student govern-
ment leaders from Florida's public uni-
versities went to Tallahassee to talk with
Gov. Charlie Crist, and "about half of the
leaders said they would support a tuition
increase if it went toward reducing class
size or providing need-based scholar-
ships." The editorial also stated Crist did
not listen to the students because in May
he vetoed a 5-percent tuition increase.
Since when does "about half" consti-
tute a majority?
There were 12 student leaders, so
"about half" can, at most, be five people
an obvious minority.
So maybe Crist was listening to the.
majority. And isn't that what democracy
is all about?
Donations, investments should be public
Thanks for being so one-sided about
the protest. Maybe the Alligator should do
its homework before reacting so quickly as
First of all, SDS didn't ask where stu-
dents' tuition money goes we know
quite well how to find that information
online. What we were asking was where all
the money handled by the UF Investment
We're also well aware of the fact that the
UFICO and the UF Foundation are 501.3(c)
organizations (I assume you know what that
means) and thus aren't obliged to release
spending records. But since the donations
go to students, we should at least know how
that money is being spent.
As far as protesting goes, don't think
we haven't tried other methods. We have
made phone calls and sent letter after letter
to Machen and the Alligator. But it seems
like the only way we can get the Alligator to
write about us is to make theatrical asses out
So thanks a lot for putting in the time to
understand what we were trying to accom-
plish for us and you. We'll try to keep quiet
from now on and leave the protesting to our
Transparency protest achieved its goals
An editorial headline told us
Wednesday's demonstration for transpar-
ency was pointless and that it "didn't ac-
complish much." As a member of Students
for a Democratic Society and an organizer
of the protest, I'd like to point out that we
actually accomplished every one of our ob-
jectives for the day.
We kicked off our campaign in a vis-
ible and energetic way. We presented our
demands to UF President Bernie Machen's
associates did anyone really think the
president would be there to greet us at the
steps of Tigert Hall? Not really.
We got extensive local media cover-
age. We networked with other students
searching for a meaningful way to work for
change at UF. Perhaps most importantly,
we did all of this a week before the next UF
Board of Trustees meeting, where this issue
will be discussed.
With any luck, we added urgency to
an issue that has been on the board's back
burner for years now.
Also, the editorial pointed out that the
UF Foundation is a private organization
created to "support the university," but it
failed to consider whether it deserves to
be considered as separate from the uni-
versity and thus exempt from Florida's
SDS does not think UF should get off so
on such a technicality. We believe all opera-
tions of a public institution, including UF's
endowment investments, should be open
for public review.

High cab prices discourage taxi use on game days
By KRISTINA PEIN
Alligator Contributing Writer
Mike Bentley wanted to take a
cab to the first Gators football game
of the season so a DUI arrest would
not ruin his night.
But when the UF graduate stu-
dent learned that a ride with City
Cab. would cost $20, he changed
his mind. Bentley decided to take
his chances driving after drinking
alcohol rather than pay the high cab
fares on game days.
"It was going to be cheaper for
me to drive.to the game and find a
spot rather than wait 30 minutes for
the cab to get there," said Bentley,

Brown-Salazar wants UF to change the policy. He said
new energy-saving light bulbs had been installed in all
the village housing, but residents were being forced to
use energy-inefficient electric dryers.
Holland contended safety factors were more pressing
than conserving energy.
"We aren't against saving energy," he said. "But if
someone wants to save energy by using candles, obvi-
ously they can't; there's a safety element there. It's the
same for the clotheslines."
Brown-Salazar has started a petition for his commu-
nity, and he said he plans to submit it in less than one
month to UF's housing officials.
He cited examples from Florida statutes that promote
the use of solar drying. Those statutes don't apply to con-
dominiums or apartment complexes though.
"The university is not keeping the spirit of that law
though," he said.
Brown-Salazar got the go-ahead from the mayor of,
his village to petition UF housing to set up clotheslines.
Not every unit needs a clothesline, but there should be a
designated area on campus where students can line-dry
their clothing, he said.
Holland said that students can use drying racks in
their own apartments to dry their clothes. Additionally,
he said that officials are willing to take suggestions.
"We always entertain suggestions and ideas from
the students," he said. "Would we rule out looking at it
again? If the situation was right, we would consider it.
But since it is part of the contract, we aren't going to be
quick to remove it either."

This week, the Gainesville Police

and emergency shelter vouchers will
be passed out by GPD.
The voucher will enable them to ob-
tain bed space at either The Salvation

has serious health issues, other arrange-
ments will be made, Woods said.
Each individual will have five days
to use the voucher.
In August, City Commission de-
cided, in a 5-to-1 vote, that all homeless
people living on the public property of

For tomorrow's matchup between

Picks Column has reached into its col-
lective bedside table for some perspec-
tive on the Troy Trojans.
We called up Jim Daniels, the Vice
President of Marketing for Trojan, the
makers of "America's #1 Condom."
The company began in the 1920s,

uncertain, some stories point to the
protective nature of the city of Troy and

could probably learn a thing or two
from its prophylactic brethren.
Sorry, if that was a low blow (on that
note, Trojan makes flavored condoms,
too). So what are the benefits of Trojan
"The obvious benefits are to protect
against unexpected pregnancies and
the spread of STDs," Daniels said.
"With correct use and compliance, they
are 98 to 99 percent effective."
With those numbers, who wouldn't
want condoms on the field?
The Gators registered four sacks
against Western Kentucky, and Troy
will need some reliable protection to
prevent the same from happening.
Since the football Trojans have al-
ready allowed a sack this season, the
pieces of latex seem to offer more pro-
tection than the Troy offensive line.
"I don't think Troy is 98 or 99 percent
effective, so yes, we would be more pro-
tective," Daniels said.
Until recently, the company was
represented by the "Trojan Man," who
would come to the rescue of young
couples by offering condoms.
Trojan Man was pretty jacked, so it
made us wonder what kind of football
player he would make.
"He would probably be a coach,"

QB Haugabook puts Trojans on map
By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer Ml
When Tony Franklin took over as the offensive coor- B
dinator at Troy after the 2005 season; he quickly realized
one big problem.
He didn't have a quarterback.
"Before I ever took the job, (Troy head coach Larry
Blakeney) sent me film," said Franklin, a former offensive
coordinator- at Kentucky. "I looked at the quarterbacks
and didn't feel like there was anybody here that could
play and do what I wanted to do."
So Franklin did what any other enterprising coordina- -
tor would do. He scanned recruiting Web sites, checking
out Scout, Rivals and Sunshine Preps.
"That's where I saw him," Franklin said.
"Fundamentally, he was doing the things I believe in. He
kept the ball high, he had hot feet and he did real well in
the pocket. Immediately, I knew he was the guy. Because
of those three things, he was somebody I wanted to find
The guy was Omar Haugabook, a 6-foot-2, 220-pound
quarterback out of Dodge City (Kan.) Community
"Immediately, I knew he was the guy. ,
Because of those three things, he was
somebody I wanted to find more about."

The day Franklin passed his NCAA recruiting test,
he got Haugabook on the phone. Franklin convinced
Haugabook to de-commit from Marshall by explaining
how cold it was in West Virginia and how much closer
Troy was to his home of Belle Glade.

Gators to travel to Utah, focus on fundamentals
Small arena to prepare UF for SEC venues
By EVAN DREXLER
Even though the UF volleyBall
team is 6-0, Coach Mary Wise will
tell you the Gators are far from
"This team is a long ways away
from playing its best volleyball,"
With only one match to go be-
fore the Southeastern Conference
schedule begins -next week, the
Gators will take all the time they
can get to refine their play.
UF travels to Salt Lake City to
take on Utah (2-3) Sunday at 6 p.m.
Wise talked about getting better
at blocking earlier in the season,
and the Gators have visibly im-
proved in that area.
After blocking in the single dig-
its in their first four matches, the
Gators had 10 blocks against Santa
Clara on Saturday afternoon and a
season-high 16 against Florida State
on Wednesday night.
But for senior outside hit-
ter Marcie Hampton, that's not
"There's a lot we have to get bet-
ter on," she said. "We have a ton to
work on blocking, serving and
just the basics. We have to get better
in order to beat [SEC] teams."
Senior setter Angie McGinnis
has noticed a step-up in play, but
said there is plenty of room to get
better in setting, passing and block-
"It's all coming around," she
said, "but, I definitely think that
in order to beat the top teams in
the SEC, and then eventually the
NCAA Tournament, we have to
improve those three areas."
The Gators certainly don't
want to come out flat like they did
against FSU, losing the first game
before taking the final three.
"If we ever come out like that
again, we will all be benched,"
senior middle blocker Kisya
Though the Utes have a losing
record,-they received votes in the
most recent American Volleyball
Coaches Association Poll and are
coming off a win against Purdue, a
team that was No. 17 in the nation
at the time.
Instead of playing in a large
basketball arena like the Gators do,
Utah plays its matches in a second-
ary arena. Wise thinks this experi-
ence in Utah will help when SEC
"They play in a smaller auxiliary
gym," she said. "And I think that's
good for our team before we go
into places like Alabama and some
of the SEC schools that play in a
smaller facility, where the crowd's
right on top of you."
UF and Utah met last season
with UF taking the win 3-1 at home.
McGinnis recorded UF's second
career triple-double in that match
with 56 assists, 11 digs and 10 kills.
Hampton leads the team in
kills with 72, outside hitter Amber
McCray is second with 48 and
Killingsworth is third with 37.
"We all play with a love for
the game and we're all very com-
petitive," Hampton said. "As a
group, [the seniors] look to set an

kills, with 32 so

than her career
McGinnis this season.
Her kills often
come on sneaky downward slaps
over the net when the opponent
thinks she is going to set the ball to
a hitter instead.
"The team needs that in order
to open up our offense," McGinnis
said. "In order for the block on the
other side to be confused, they have
to be worrying about the setter kill
as well as the hitter. I kind of have
to do that in order to open up our

both to the opponent and her
Gators teammates, resulting in

years old, came into UF as a

But her mother, Sharon, said she
is very competitive and wanted
to train early to be ready for .2008

"She wanted to get stronger, and
she didn't want to bum a year of

to do either to win games.
"I can throw it, and I can run,"
Haugabook said. "It all depends on how
the games go."
He put Troy on the college football
map last season by scaring the daylights
out of Seminole nation in week two.
The Trojans led 17-10 in the fourth
quarter before Drew Weatherford

told us about the brand is that it is like a trusted mentor. He's
approachable, tells it like it is and he's always there to help you

help the players have success."
According to a study done by Trojan last year, the Gators
would benefit from a visit by the Trojan man; UF ranked 49th
out of 100 schools in Trojan's Sexual Health Report Card survey
and earned an "F" in condom availability.
With a horde of Trojans due in town Saturday, that grade
should improve some in the 2007 rankings.
Over the years, Trojan has made an effort to increase plea-
sure for its users with things like vibrating rings and corkscrew
designs, so what would bring more enjoyment to Gators fans: a
win or one of the company's products?
"That's a good question," Daniels said.
"Let's just hope that the students on the Florida campus
have a great time, and if they choose to celebrate by being
sexually active, they make sure they have a Trojan condom for
With that said, Daniels isn't ready to award UF a win just
yet; he picked the Gators to win but expects a tough fight.
"Troy is going to put up some very good defense, given their
namesake, and they will be respected," he said.
With that, on to the picks!
Leading off with an 8-2 record is Bryan "Let me make sure
this is okay with my girlfriend" Jones, who has survived for
weeks off of crumbs he found in his unkempt mustache.
He hopes to take those experiences
as well as lessons learned in losses to
Georgia Tech and Nebraska last season
into The Swamp this week.
The Gators will be waiting.
"He has a different throwing motion,
but he's an extremely accurate passer,"
UF coach Urban Meyer said. "I know he
struggled a little bit against Arkansas, but
that was more in the second half. Early in
that game he did a great job. That was a
heck of a job in the first half."
In the two-spot, also at 8-2, is Brian "Sneakers only get better
with age" Steele, who will miss the entire opening weekend of
the NFL season when he realizes MTV is running a marathon
of America's Next Top Model.
Hitting third with a 6-4 mark is Jenna "Ooh, pick the team
with the cutest mascot to win the Super Bowl" Marina, whose
hair in her column picture looks eerily like Joakim Noah's locks
minus his token hair tie. Now if only we could get her to stop
wearing those billowy African gowns around the office she's
scaring away the new staff.
Batting cleanup at 6-4 is Mike "I like to pick up the occa-
sional running back on the side of the road" McCall, whose
top three searches on Google are "david garrard topless," "ecu
pep band song lyrics" and "david garrard shirtless." He'll love
every minute of those muscles if he has enough hand lotion to
last him through the night.
Bringing up the rear, also at 6-4, is Nick "I'll cover your high
school soccer game for free" Zaccardi, who has had a rough
couple of days, as his beloved Illinois football team lost last
week and Lon Kruger has yet to respond to his message on

Smith would go on to play another season, at
Utah, and he is now entering his third year with
the San Francisco 49ers.
But what about the road games?
OK, Meyer lost at Alabama, at LSU and at
South Carolina in his first year.
He lost at Auburn in 2006.
Only a couple of those defeats can be consid-
If Troy beats the Gators, it would be an embar-
rassment, not an upset.

New Mexico team in 2003, though I don't remem-
ber gasping in horror when seeing that score
come across the ticker.
So Meyer doesn't lose at home, and he doesn't
He doesn't overlook teams, either.
The real start of the season comes next week
as Phillip Fulmer brings his Tennessee Vols into
Gainesville, looking for his first win over Meyer.
The same scenario came into play in 2006.
The Gators easily won their opener and faced
a "trap" game before heading to Tennessee.
UF blanked Central Florida 42-0 led by a
27-point second quarter and started packing
for Knoxville at halftime.
In 2005, the Gators romped 41-3 over Louisiana
Tech the week before Tennessee.
The Trojans do have one thing going for them:
gamblers seem to like them.
They opened as 27-point underdogs.
As of Thursday night, that number fell to 26
1/2 as everyone drinking the Appalachian State
Kool-Aid put their money on the Trojans, at least
to cover the spread.
Las Vegas knows something. Watch out.

Gators to take on in-state rivals Seminoles, Bulls
By DANNY KLEIN
Say what you will about Florida State, but
Ashley Harris isn't listening.
When the UF soccer team hosts the
Seminoles this weekend, Harris, a senior
from Royal Palm Beach, will have no prob-
lem looking past the garnet and gold.
"Rival teams? I don't have any," Harris
said. "All my teams are rivals."
Harris, along with the rest of the No. 14
Gators (1-1), will host the No. 9 Seminoles (1-
1) this Sunday at 1:30 p.m. at James G. Pressly
FSU will be the Gators' second top-10 op-
ponent, and they are only two weekends into
the season. The Seminoles, along with last
Sunday's opponent, Notre Dame, made up
one half of last year's final four.
For Harris, a chance to play such a high-
caliber team is what she needs to get moti-
"I like having competition,": she said.
"That's what I like about the game. It's excit-
ing. It's competing it's what we're here
for. If we didn't want to compete, then why
would we play sports?"
Harris is only one of the eight seniors
on the team who have experienced victory
against their in-state foe.
The Seminoles have defeated the Gators
in the past two contests, and in three of the
Last year, FSU scored a late first-half goal
that would prove too much for UF, who fell to
the then-ranked No. 2 Seminoles 1-0.
The game, held in Tallahassee, was played
in front of a record crowd of 4,582 at Seminole
This year, the Gators hope to set an at-
tendance record of their own, as they try to
eclipse the 4,745 fans who attended the 1999
matchup between the two teams.

that they can't all fit in the stands. ... It's a lot

Gainesville and only the second meeting be-
tween the programs.
There is some familiarity as the two
squads met last spring for an exhibition game
in Tampa, where the Gators pulled out a 2-0
Burleigh said her team has no intention of
looking past the Bulls.
"We played them in the spring, and it was
a battle," she said. "They're a real defense-
oriented team, and this is going to be a real
test for us. They want to defend hard, and
we need to take care of our opportunities,
especially in this game because we may not
get too many."
Following last weekend's loss to No. 2
Notre Dame, the Gators remain confident as
they move deeper into the season.
"I don't think it was a make-or-break type
of thing," junior forward Ameera Abdullah
said. "We're going to just keep doing what
we're doing and continue to move forward."

Pounceys linked by brotherly love
By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
They sit together, side by side, slightly
leaning forward as their arms rest on their
They let out small chuckles and their dim-
ples resonate on their schoolboy faces.
Then the questions from reporters con-
tinue: Do you finish each other's sentences?
"We always do it," they say in unison.
Have you ever switched places in classes?
"We always wanted to but never did," one
Two seconds later...
"We always wanted to but never did," the
other says, copying the prior's words without
realizing it, creating laughter from each other
and those surrounding.
Think you've just developed double vi-
Nope. It's just a whole lot of Pouncey.
"Not many," they say together on how
many people can tell them apart. "They just
call us Pouncey twins."
Mike and Maurkice better known as
The Pouncey Twins. Better known as two pil-
lars for the future of UF's offensive line. Better
known as the blockers and protectors for Tim
Tebow, Percy Harvin and Kestahn Moore.
And better known as two of the goofiest
300-plus-pound men you will ever meet.
"They're jokesters right there," said senior
offensive lineman Carlton Medder, who is
Maurkice's roommate. "They're always get-
ting you laughing. Always keeping a smile
on your face. There's never a down time with
The Pounceys have 'developed a reputa-
tion as jokesters, but there's no joke if you
keep them from the buffet line.
"All they do is eat every second," fresh-
man running back and former Lakeland High
teammate Chris Rainey said. "They don't care
what it is."
Wherever the Pounceys wander in search
of their next refueling station, it's not a pretty
sight for waiters and waitresses.
"Some cooks start sweating (when we
walk in)," Mike said. "'Man, we got to cook
another batch of something.'
"Me, my brother, Carl Johnson and Marcus
Gilbert went to Hooters one day and shut it
down. Had everything in there. (The wait-
resses are like) 'Dang, we got a lot to feed.'"
Maurkice gets the same feeling.
"We walk in and they're like, 'There's
going to be a lot more tipping for a lot more
cooking,'" he said.
Then there's the day when their
mother, Lisa Webster, works the hardest
"It's trouble there," Mike said. "We eat ev-
erything. We have like a fiesta over there."
But they're not just hungry off the field.
They're hungry on it, too.
"For a true freshman, Maurkice is hungry.
He's real hungry," Medder said. "He's always
asking me questions about this play, about
that play, about this one, about that one.
That's always a good sign from a freshman."
The offensive line has recognized the
Pounceys' abilities. UF coach Urban Meyer
even said Maurkice was one of the finest
freshman offensive linemen he has ever seen.
And Maurkice's play has backed up that
statement so far.
In his first game Saturday against Western
Kentucky, Maurkice started in place of the
injured Phil 'Trautwein, who is out indefi-
nitely with a stress fracture in his right foot.
He learned he would take the job just a few
But after several late-night study ses-
sions with Medder, including one that
went past midnight, Maurkice was ready
and the offensive line didn't miss a beat.
Meyer almost graded the freshman a cham-

in a given game.
"They like to have fun," senior center and
team captain Drew Miller said. "It's al-ivwa

after glancing over at his brother.
As the term "kissing your sister" applies to
a tie in sports, you don't want to be kissing the
same girl as your brother, either.
"We just wanted to stop playing around,"
Maurkice said. "You can hurt a girl's feelings
like that. We didn't want to mess around with
the same girls."

the Pounceys dare pull the switch oA Meyer?
"I don't know," Mike said. "I don't want to

However, Meyer said in the spring that he
couldn't tell them apart.

Gators take notice of Michigan loss, prepare for Troy
By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
After Appalachian State stunned Michigan last week, the
Gators have been taking notes of what not to do Saturday when
they take on Troy in The Swamp.
"Any time a big powerhouse like that goes down to a team
not even in our division, it's a real big surprise," UF center Drew
Miller said. "It just proves that anything can happen in a football
game if you don't prepare right."
Though some may assume that UF's first two games against
Western Kentucky and Troy do not present a challenge for the
Gators, a closer look at the Trojans might prove otherwise. Troy
is the reigning Sun Belt Conference champion and won its first
ltowl game in the progragi's history last season, defeating Rice in
the New Orleans Bowl.
Troy senior Omar Haugabook is a proven quarterback
with some talent around him, including running back Kenny
Cattouse, who was placed on the Doak Walker Award watch list
It's the same list that features players like Arkansas' Darren
McFadden and Rutgers' Ray Rice, both Heisman contenders.
The Trojans return nearly all of their starters, making it virtu-
ally the same team that nearly upset a top-10 Florida State squad
While the Gators don't plan on losing to Troy, UF coach Urban
Meyer did say he is concerned that UF might believe it already
has the game in the bag.
"I worry about that with the older guys like Drew Miller or
Carlton Medder, but they are such good kids, and we are going to
be on them so hard that I don't see that being a problem," Meyer
Miller agrees, but said he could see how some teams might
show up and expect to sleepwalk to victory.
"It's easy when you go against teams like that the last few
years and usually blow them out not really getting a scare,"
Miller said. "Teams come in as underdogs, and they'll do all
kinds of things crazy blitzes, different things on offense and
that can confuse you if you don't prepare right."
During last week's 49-3 victory against Western Kentucky,
Miller wasn't completely happy with the way UF won the
"We had a couple drives where I saw the guys kind of go
down to (Western Kentucky's level)," Miller said. "When we
were on the sideline, I would try to regroup them and say, 'This
can't happen. We got to score as much as we can to get the young
guys in, so they can get game experience.'" '0
