UF59 9 TROY31
Meyer happy despite sloppy second half
By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
A car collided with Troy's defen-
sive bus on its way to Florida Field
on Saturday, and the bus kept on
going up Interstate 75.
That was Troy's first mistake.
The Trojans' defense would
make many more by the end of the
Led by an unstoppable first-
half offensive showcase, No. 4 UF
trashed its non-conference foe 59-31
The Gators scored touchdowns
on all seven of their first-half pos-
sessions, as Troy's defense appeared
to be suffering from whiplash.
The offense, led by sophomore
quarterback Tim Tebow, looked un-
stoppable at its best and impressive
at its worst. Six different UF players
scored touchdowns in the first half.
It's that kind of production that
won't be so easy to duplicate as the
SEC season begins.
"That's very exciting," UF coach
Urban Meyer said. "Obviously,
that's going to change. Reality sets
Tebow completed 18-of-25
passes for 236 yards and three
Tight end Cornelius Ingram led
the team with seven receptions for
105 yards and a touchdown.
It was a complete reversal in
the second half, as Troy outscored
UF 24-10 after
the break. Meyer
said he wasn't
too bothered by
Tebow all," Meyer said.
"We're 2-0, man. A lot of teams
around the country aren't 2-0."
On special teams, the Gators
blocked two punts.

for last week's game, shook off

Lynyrd Skynyrd announced as Growl's second act

Thanks in part to Gator Growl's corporate
sponsorship, rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd has
been booked to perform at this year's pep
Shelley Meyer, wife of UF football coach
Urban Meyer and host of Gator Growl,
made the announcement during halftime at
Saturday's Gators football game.
The 84th installment of Gator Growl,
billed as the largest student-run pep rally in
the world, will take place Nov. 2 at Ben Hill

The challenge was finding a musical act
that held appeal across several generations,
"It's really hard to find a musical act for
Gator Growl because you have 15-year-olds to
85-year-olds," Weingard said. "We believe we
met that challenge with Lynyrd Skynyrd."
The band will receive $150,000 for the per-
formance. It will perform for about 40 minutes
after headlining comedian Frank Caliendo,"
who is receiving $50,000 for his act.
Weingard said talks with the band began
about a month ago but were just finalized
within the last week.
He said he expects ticket sales to pick up
after the announcement.
When asked if he was a fan of Lynyrd
Skynyrd, Weingard asked, "Who isn't?"
"It's really hard to find a musical
act for Gator Growl because you
have 15-year-olds to 85-year-olds.

"They're timeless," he said.
The announcement came just days after
Gator Growl producers introduced- Verizon
Wireless as its corporate sponsor for the 2007
and 2008 productions, giving Gator Growl
$112,500 over those two years.

Gator Growl has been pursuing corporate

said, but the largest donation until now was
He said Verizon approached his staff with
an offer in late June.
Aside from sponsorships, the rally makes
money through ticket and T-shirt sales.
Weingard said the deal was unrelated to
the rally's past financial troubles.
In 2002, Student Government had to give
the rally nearly $200,000 because students had
not bought enough tickets.

Qualifying for Student Government
political parties was off to a slow start
Supervisor of Elections Sarah Krantz
said about 57 UF students filled out paper-
work and qualified to run with SG parties,
which she said was an average number for
the first day.
"Traditionally, the first day is the
slowest," Krantz said in phone interview
Sunday. "I'm happy with the number."
Krantz said she suspects the first day is
typically slowest because of student pro-

day because they want to beat the rush."
Although five parties registered for the
fall election, only the Gator and Progress
parties participated in qualifying.

dates he interviewed were excellent.

Scooter accidents rising-
By LINDSAY WEAVER

When Guillermo Moratorio's motor
scooter collided with a black Saab earlier this
semester, he was flung headfirst toward it in
a front-flip that landed him sideways on the
The UF senior was traveling at the 35-
mile-per-hour speed limit on Southwest
Second Avenue when the woman driving the
car pulled out past the stop sign.
Moratorio, who was not wearing a hel-
met, could not swerve to avoid the car and
collided with the rear of the vehicle.
Moratorio's accident left him with both
his ankles fractured and a destroyed scooter.
"It was pretty intense," said Moratorio,
who has been on crutches since the accident.
"My scooter was completely obliterated."
Reported motorcycle and scooter acci-
dents have increased from five to 18 incidents
between 2005 and 2006, said University
Police Department Lt. Robert Wagner.
Most reported incidents involved scoot-
ers, Wagner said. This year, the trend shows
no sign of stopping.
Eleven accidents have been reported so
far, a number that already exceeds the total
count for 2005, Wagner said.
"There may be more crashes due to there
being more scooters," he said.
Students had purchased 1,265 scooter and
motorcycle decals as of Aug. 1. Faculty and
staff have purchased 441 scooter and motor-
cycle decals since April.
Ron Fuller, of UF Transportation and

between the 2005-2006 and 2006-2007 school
However, Fuller is not convinced that
more scooters oin the road lead to more ac-
cidents. He said it is based on the riders.
Collin Austin, the owner of a local store
called New Scooters 4 Less, said riders can
stay safe by wearing helmets, riding a bright-
colored scooter or putting both feet down to
stay stable when stopped.
"You're definitely the smallest thing on
the road. You want to make sure-you're the
most visible," he said.
Additionally, Wagner said, wearing hel-
mets is crucial.
"I don't think people realize that 20 miles
per hour is enough to kill," he said.

SG mudslinging detracts
T he battle rages on, and the end is nowhere in sight. As
Student Government parties continue fighting over
their names, they may delay qualifying for would-be
senatorial candidates. This does not bode well for a smooth
But we'd be lying if we said we weren't intrigued. Last
spring, the Pants and Gator parties were the only ones run-
ning, and we all knew that one was over before it even began.
More parties, in theory, mean more choices.
However, all this could just turn into what we'd like to call
a fustercluck. If the parties are already arguing about some-
thing as seemingly insignificant as their names, we don't
even want to know what further accusations could come up.
It's plausible the parties will be so busy throwing stones they
won't have time to campaign but hey, that means fewer
people assaulting us on Turlington Plaza.
If someone, anyone, in SG hopes to make a difference this
election season, the parties must rise above the petty bicker-
ing. Enough squabbling over whether one party can be called
Swamp, The Party Formerly Known as Swamp or The Party
Formerly Known as The Party Formerly Known as Swamp.
Pick a new, noncontroversial name and start working on
those platforms. You know, those things that list what you
want to accomplish for UF and how you'll do it. If a party
were able to get its platform out more than two weeks prior
to the elections, we'd be amazed beyond belief. Just keep
them realistic please, no waterslides at Lake Wauburg
or promises of free music downloads on campus. Students
aren't dumb, and they know what is obtainable. Don't kid
them or yourselves.
We may be cynical, but we'd love to see SG-wannabes
get their acts together. We'd love to see new, accomplishable
ideas presented. Most of all, we'd love to see clean cam-
paigns. The fight should be fierce, but not a flame war.

Well, it doesn't matter. He's coming at noon on a

least the midday talk will be convenient for Kerry, who'll

The show isn't costing UF anything, because acting
senators can't be paid for speeches. I wonder, is there any
way we can we pay this guy to stay in Washington, D.C.?

about Mel Martinez or Bill Nelson? You know, the senators

But I kid Accent only because I love it. I was a member
of the Student Government agency during my freshman
year at UF. I remember our first staff meeting, when we
went around- the room suggesting potential speakers for
the year. We didn't get any of them to come to UF, but at
least we all felt like we had a part in the matter.

UF investments not grounds for protest
Wherever UF's investment money may
be going, it can't be construed as funding
the war in any manner.
Money shuffled around on stock ex-
changes or bond markets never sees the
company in question unless, the stock or
bond is being purchased directly from the
company a tiny, tiny fraction of trading
volume and almost certainly not the case.
"Socially responsible investing" is
solely a moral matter for the investor and
rarely an effective protest.
Many people would never buy stock in
a company that manufactures cigarettes,
but that doesn't prevent more than 11
million shares of Altria Group Inc. from
trading hands each day. The same:is true
of any company doing business in Iraq.
With that in mind, it's fine to take a
stand from moral ground, but that stand
won't actually make a difference.

Laundry prices rise
By MARLY FALCON
Alligator Contributing Writer
UF students who moved back to
campus this August returned to a se-
mester of new professors, new classes
and a new laundry system.
Students living on campus dur-
ing the last academic year paid only
75 cents to wash or dry their clothes.
This semester, students are paying an
extra 50 cents every time they use the
The reason for the increase is new
energy-efficient machines placed in
25 laundry rooms throughout cam-
pus, according to Sharon Blansett,
assistant director of housing for mar-
keting; public relations and research.
The new machines are designed
to hold 20 pounds of laundry and use
15 gallons of water per wash, versus
the older machines that only held 12
pounds of laundry and used 30 gal-
lons of water per wash.
Even though it costs $1.25 for
each cycle, students are only paying
more because they are able to wash
more with the increase in size of the
machines. Students are still being
charged 13 cents a pound to do laun-
dry as they were before.
"When we looked around town,
the new laundry prices are fairly
standard," Blansett said.
Another difference students may
notice is that the new machines ap-
pear to be smaller than the older
ones, since they are
On loaded from the front
Campus rather than the top.
Blansett said the key
to making water-efficient
machines is to- compact them in size
so that not much water is needed.
So far, the machines are running
well throughout campus with the
exception of a few glitches.
"We were having some of the dry-
ers not running in the time they were
supposed to run," said Heidi Lee,
program assistant for maintenance
The new dryers -should run for
about 54 minutes before turning off,
but some students have complained
that machines have shut off early,

After a kill by Utah's Kathryn

Looks like I thought wrong.
Go back two weeks. Did you really think the Gators
would total just five sacks and one interception combined
against Troy and Western Kentucky? Plus, that one intercep-
tion wasn't even from the secondary, but a tipped pass by
Trattou, a defensive end.
Then just one sack Saturday?
I would've thought Haugabook would be having Derrick
Harvey nightmares by halftime.
The good news is that these young 'uns will work their
rears into the ground to get this right.
Meyer has never once questioned the effort of this team,
and he's done that more than enough since he first arrived
in Gainesville. So he's not afraid to publicly criticize players
But the bottom line is there's nothing these young players
can do to prepare for The Swamp's atmosphere especially
in an SEC game. It wouldn't matter if Meyer put mega-
phones in the players' ears at practices to imitate the noise.
There's only one way to overcome inexperience, and that's
by getting experience.
The defense does have its bright spots. Brandon Spikes
is ready and has been fairly impressive through two games.
Tony Joiner has stepped up as a leader, and Harvey can still
be sack master. Even Dustin Doe has looked decent. But
more than this handful of players need to come ready to
At least this defense is lucky: the offense and special
teams were outstanding against Troy. If the return game and
Brandon James can continue to give the Gators the field-po- -
sition advantage they had Saturday and Tim Tebow keeps
playing like the Golden Child, the defense will only have to
be average to pull out a win this week.

and he was not confident about pulling the starters in
the second half against Troy's capable passing game.
"If that was a team that had a problem with throw-
ing the football, I would imagine the twos would have
been in much faster," Meyer said. "At no point did I
even consider putting the twos in because the third
quarter was just awful."

UF battles injuries after thumping Troy
Lf :IM U-: RANDRE CALDWELL SPRAINED HIS MCL AND
; BRANDON JAMES HAS A SPRAINED ANKLE.
By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
After an upset-filled first two weeks of the college
football season, the Gators are pretty happy to be sitting
But with several players suffering injuries during UF's
59-31 victory against Troy on Saturday, the Gators may
:not be as unscathed as their record indicates.
Wide receiver Andre Caldwell and safety Bryan
SThomas both suffered MCL sprains, and running back
Brandon James sprained his ankle.
Meyer said after the game that Caldwell would un-
dergo an MRI to find out the severity of the injury, but
as of Sunday morning, Meyer still wasn't
:.sure about the status of either Caldwell or
S... "I don't have final word on them, but
Football obviously there's some concern there,"
.Meyer said. "I don't ever comment until I
hear it right out of the doctor's mouth."
Meyer had yet to learn the specifics of James' injury as
of Sunday morning.
Wide receiver Jarred Fayson had to be helped off the
field after he hurt his knee late in the third quarter, but
he returned to the game in the fourth, and Meyer said he
*' *"thinks the sophomore is fine to play.
If Caldwell and James are forced to miss some playing
time, Meyer said he is not sure he would rely on fresh-
S men Chris Rainey and Deonte Thompson to help out next
week against Tennessee.
'. "I'd say they're not ready," Meyer said.
In addition to Rainey, who played a minimal role,
.. .'X.. and Thompson, who didn't play a down against the
S..-Trojans, the Gators barely utilized their offensive reserves

Late goal propels Gators to win against 'Noles
By KARL HYPPOLITE
The electricity that filled James G.
Pressly stadium early Sunday afternoon
had dissipated and turned into anxiety
as the final minutes of the Gators' match
against No. 9 FSU ticked away.
But with one pass from freshman Karly
Findorff to Keleigh Hudson in the 83rd
minute; that anxiety turned to excitement.
Hudson's shot attempt from 8 yards
out found the back of the net, giving the
Gators a 2-1 lead and, a few minutes later,
"I was making a run and saw open
space," Hudson said. "I was able to put
that through ball from Karly to the far post.
I was excited to put it in, but I knew there
was still plenty of time left. It really didn't
sink in that it was the game-winner until
there was about 10 seconds left."
"It really didn't sink in that it was
the game-winner until there was
about 10 seconds left."
It was the-No. 14 UF soccer team's sec-
ond victory against an in-state rival this
weekend as the Gators (3-1) handed USF a
4-0 loss on Friday night.
Despite picking up two wins this
weekend, UF may have suffered a net
loss. Junior forward/midfielder Ameera
Abdullah may be out for an extended
period of time after colliding with Bulls
goalkeeper Mallori Lofton-Malachi in the
7th minute of Friday's game. The crowd
watched in silence as the 2006 NSCAA
third-team All-American clutched her left
ankle. after the collision. Abdullah had to
be helped off the field by trainers.
Coach Becky Burleigh held Abdullah
out for the remainder of the USF match
and the FSU match, ending her string of 30
consecutive starts. The team awaits X-ray
results on what they are calling a left pero-
neal tendon strain.

field and missed open receivers
That's not something Tennessee
quarterback Erik Ainge will do.
The Volunteers don't have an expe-
rienced receiving corps, but they do
have a very accurate quarterback.
And you can be sure Phillip Fulmer
won't be afraid to let Ainge throw
There's a reason Troy passed
twice as much as it ran, and it won't
take long for Tennessee to realize
Going into this season, I thought
the UF defense would surprise.
Many pundits were only focusing
on the offense and its explosive
playmakers, and I thought they
were underrating the defense.
