Crist's proposed cuts to cost Fla. students
By KIM WILMATH
Students could lose $600 of state funding
each if the Florida Legislature endorses Gov.
Charlie Crist's proposed budget cuts.
Because of a recent tax-revenue shortfall,
Crist proposed a 6.2-percent cut from the State
University System's funding, according to a
press release from the Board of Governors, the
highest governing body for Florida's univer-
Crist proposed a 3.6 percent cut, $980 mil-
lion, from the overall state budget.
Bill Edmonds, spokesman for the Board of
Governors, said the board would appeal to the
state Legislature for a compromise on Crist's
recommended cuts. The Legislature will make
the final decision.
"We're really not trying to rough up the
governor," Edmonds said. "We had expected
to carry part of the burden, but we were sur-
prised and disappointed to see we were carry-
ing a bigger burden than others."
Anthony De Luise, spokesman for the
governor's office, said Crist cut heavily from
state universities because he's focused on
reserving money for kindergarten through
De Luise said state university administra-
tors have assured Crist they could keep en-
rollment strong even with
UF Provost Janie Fouke
said UF's only choice is to
continue finding ways to
reduce spending for the
"Crist's proposals are
Foulke H more harsh than we had
been led to believe," Fouke
As for the Tuition Differential Program,
Fouke said it's only a start..
The program, set.to go into effect in fall
2008, will incrementally raise tuition 40 per-
cent over four years.
UF's previously planned cuts, between $30
million and $34 million, are already double the
amount of the projected funds that will come
from the program, Fouke said, adding it will
generate about $17 million.
Edmonds called the program a great
achievement, but he said it would probably
leave universities right where they started.
"We could just be taking two steps forward
and two steps back," he said. "It could be that

Sept. 11 tributes
planned for today
* CENTURY TOWER WILL
PLAY IN VICTIMS' HONOR.
By ILEANA MORALES
Alligator Contributing Writer
UF students and faculty
looking to honor Sept. 11 vic-
tims can find that opportunity
on Turlington Plaza today.
A Jewish student organiza-
tion will commemorate the
sixth anniversary of Sept. 11
with an event aimed at assuag-
ing the negative image of the
Twin Towers with good deeds.
Century Tower will also
play a tribute to the victims of
From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on
Turlington, the Lubavitch/
Chabad Jewish Student Center
Student Group will host their
second annual Good Deed
"We all think of the twin
towers as being crushed," said
Rabbi Berl Goldman, executive
director of Lubavitch/Chabad
Jewish Student Center.
"Let's rebuild the image by
connecting two towers with
good deeds and love and kind-
ness," he said.
The idea is that UF students
and faculty should do a good
deed in memory of Sept. 11
victims, he said.
The event can be found
at two tables connected by a
miniature wooden replica of
the twin towers built by the stu-
dents to represent "good deeds
Students from the center and
the group will offer suggestions
for good deeds.
So far, ideas range from
making sandwiches for the
homeless to giving to charities
that benefit the genocide vic-
tims in Darfur.
Participants will document
their good deeds
Local and attach them
News to a picture of a
Sept. 11 victim.
Goldman said the deeds could
be done in a few seconds.
After the deeds are attached
to the pictures, participants will
receive a sticker. Goldman said
he hopes to attract at least 1,000
people to the tables by the end
of the marathon.
"I wouldn't be surprised if
we filled that and surpassed,"
At 12:35 p.m., John Courter's
"In Memoriam- September 11,
2001" will play from Century
Tower, according to Denise
Krigbaum, spokeswoman for

Two parties dissolve after Election Commission ruling
By DEVIN CULCLASURE
The back-and-forth battle be-
tween two UF students fighting for
the right to the Swamp Party name
came to a dose Monday night.
At the third hearing of
Student Government's Elections
Commission since Thursday, the
commission ruled in favor of Keith
Hardwick, former Swamp Party
Hardwick had registered the
name in SG's spring election, giv-
ing him the first shot to register it
again this semester, according to
rules from the Center for Student

vious involvement in the party,

name for the fall election, which
prompted Hardwick to file a com-
As the conflict twisted and
turned, Miorelli's presidency rotat-

his party, regardless of its name, to

Grad student's blog
bashes Latin culture
Ricardo Navarro, a UF fine arts junior, sketches people in motion on the Plaza of the Americas
for his drawing class Monday.
By KORI FREDERICK
A graduate student in UF's
College of Journalism and
Communications who has railed
against Miami's Hispanic culture
in his blog, often using racial slurs
in his posts, is teaching at UF
University officials expressed
concern about a blog by Matthew
Meltzer before he came to UF
Meltzer said he submitted some
of his less offensive postings to UF,
including a post about the TV
show "Golden Girls" and the rar-
ity of being a Jewish Marine.
"Those writings got me admit-
ted into top programs like UF
and got me a paid writing gig,"
While Meltzer defends his com-
ments on his blog as social com-
mentary, he acknowledges that
his generalizations of the Hispanic
community could easily be con-
strued as offensive.
In a June 25 posting titled
"Judge Not By The Color of One's
Skin, But By the Content of Their
Culture," he listed 26 qualities he
said described Latin culture.
He ended the post by saying
he has many Latin friends, and
said that he does not dislike Latin
people but their culture.
Although Meltzer is teaching
classes at UF, he said he does not
let his personal views seep into the
classroom. He would not specify
what classes he is teaching.
After his department, which he
would not name, expressed con-
cern about his writings, he assured
the department chair he would be
professional in the classroom, he
University officials say that they
don't do background checks on
students before admitting them.
"It would be logistically im-
possible," said Steve Orlando, UF
"Those writings got me
admitted into top pro-
grams like UF and got me
a paid writing gig."
UF graduate student
While he found Meltzer's
blog objectionable and offensive,
Orlando said it was still protected
by the First Amendment.
John Wright, interim dean of
the College of Journalism and
Communications, would not com-
ment on the situation.
Meltzer said his blog is simply
an exaggerated part of his person-
"I don't hate on minorities
and women in my daily life," he
said. "I understand that people get
offended. But people who know
me personally know that's not
how I am in real life."

Proposed budget cuts
hurt UF even more
It looks like the honeymoon is over.
In the past, we've been delightfully surprised by Gov.
Charlie Crist's moderate, non-Jeb stances including sup-
porting the environment and issuing an executive order that
requires the state government to use plain English instead of
jargon when talking politics. We've wondered if he is secretly
a Democrat posing as a Republican.
Our highly critical Department of Darts & Laurels has even
given him some laurels. Now that's impressive.
But we're starting to wonder if all that self-tanner has gone
to his head. The man who touts himself as "The People's
Governor" on his Web site has morphed into "The People
Except the Students' Governor."
We weren't surprised when he vetoed a 5-percent tuition
increase in Maybut hey, plenty of people students and non-
students alike supported that decision. He said back when
he was campaigning that he wouldn't support raising tuition
and putting the burden on Florida's families. But we can for-
give him because we've got the Tuition Differential Program
lined up to take effect in fall 2008. ..
But it got worse. Crist proposed a 6.2 percent cut from the
State University System's funding, or about $600 per student.
The overall average proposed cut for the rest of the state's
budget is 3.6 percent, meaning our universities got shafted.
For some reason, Florida's universities are being asked to
carry a bigger burden than the rest of the state.
Never mind that the universities are already underfunded
while taking on more and more students every year. Never
mind that our student-faculty ratios are abysmal. Never mind
that UF's College of Liberal Arts and Sciences' Academic
Advising Center has only 12 full-time undergraduate advisers,
according to its Web site. That's about one per 1,000 students.
These are public universities we're talking about. We don't
have wildly high tuition. Actually, Florida's universities have
among the lowest undergraduate tuition in nation. We don't
have donors lining up and writing us blank checks. We're
pretty sure if you went around to any of Florida's 11 public
universities, they'd say they could use some extra cash. The
bigger ones UF, Florida State University, the University of
Central Florida and the University of South Florida might
even start begging.
UF was already expecting to be $30 million to $34 million
poorer next year. The amount it anticipates receiving from the
Tuition Differential Program in fall 2008 is only about $17 mil-
lion. It doesn't take a math major to figure out that will leave
UF in the red. And if the proposed cuts go through, that differ-
ence will get larger.
The Florida Legislature has never been particularly gener-
ous with universities. We'd hoped that would change with
Crist at the helm, but we've been wrong before. The irony of
all this? Charlie is a product of the State University System.
Yup, he graduated from FSU in 1978.
Maybe things were different 30 years ago. Maybe our
universities have gotten better over time, drawing in more
students because of their great value, esteemed professors and
amazing sports programs.
Maybe Crist needs a wake-up call. It could just be a re-
cording of his inaugural address from Jan. 2. "Florida has
the nation's best and brightest," Crist said. "Our colleges and
universities are national leaders."
You said it, Charlie. Now you need to help us maintain it.

One location enough for pizza place
S atchel's Pizza is too damn far away. It's so distant
I've run up a string of excuses for why I haven't
been lately: "My car won't start." "My scooter died
last week." "My bike tire's flat." "My shoes have holes."
I shouldn't have to make such claims, but it's impos-
sible to drive 16 miles round-trip as often as I'd like. As
sacrilegious as it may be, many people think Satchel's
needs a new location.
If you haven't heard about it, Satchel's is considered
Gainesville's pride and joy. If I made a list of the top five
restaurants in Gainesville, I would immediately place
Satchel's at No. 1.
My love affair began two years ago during my first
week on campus. I'd grown up pining for the stereotypi-
cal college hangout portrayed in sitcoms: a pizza joint
seasoned with eccentric decorations and surly wait staff.
It was more than a simple quest to satisfy my hunger that
drove me to Satchel's it was an inevitable adventure.
I'd heard of such a legendary parlor right here in
Gainesville, where one could even have a good time
while waiting for a table. "Quintessentially college" was
the description I'd heard, and my young heart couldn't
wait any longer.
I wasn't sure where it was it seemed like I walked
the entire city without spotting it but reliable sources
furthered my assumption that this mythical place would
lie at the end of a rainbow.
I seriously questioned whether it was a farce, whether
upperclassmen met at one point to discuss plans ensur-

been part of a larger plot, but I refused to believe.
When we old-timers started navigating for ourselves,
we didn't use Google Maps yet. The general consensus
was MapQuest could find any place with an address. In
reality, MapQuest's directions rarely put you anywhere

the probability of eating out diminishes greatly.
Satchel's runs a good operation. It has a good busi-
ness model because it is the little guy. Maybe it would
ruin business to open up a new store. Maybe it would
feel too corporate. If Satchel's were to compete with the
restaurants on Archer Road, the restaurant's proximity
would no longer be an issue, and its superior value and
taste would likely take care of the competition.
Even so, could Satchel's recreate the famous atmo-
sphere with less land and more congestion? Would
Lightnin' Salvage, the well-known junk shop behind
Satchel's, come along for the ride? There's also the prob-
lem of cannibalization: Would business at a new location
take away too many customers from the original?
It would be nearly impossible to replace the mystique
of the current location. You have to decide whether the
frustration it takes to actually get to Satchel's adds to or
detracts from its legend.
Satchel's has been doing it right for years, so there's
no reason for it to expand. It may be in East Gainesville,
but half the fun is in the journey.

Election problems won't affect slating
Election season or complaint season?
Right now, it is hard to tell the difference.
Complaints have been filed, injunctions is-
sued, and subpoenas requested. The Student
Government Supreme Court got involved.
Various people have issued complaints to the
Election Commission from various parties
over a variety of issues.
With all of this going on, it must seem hard
to trust the election process and the political
parties. Nevertheless, we must. Just because
the Election Commission is working overtime
does not mean the process cannot be trusted. In
fact, the very idea of the Election Commission
working so hard should ensure the election is
running smoothly and correctly.
We as students need to take pride in UF's
legal system and trust that it is being used cor-
rectly rather than abused. Whether you like
the current system or you want to see change

Soccer program for local homeless could be coming
By APRIL DUDASH
International homeless soccer programs
have one goal in mind: to help homeless'
players kick their old ways of life goodbye,
whether those ways involve drug addictions
or lack of education.
Anthony Lyons, manager for the
Gainesville Community Redevelopment
Agency, said he hopes to start a homeless soc-
cer program in the area.
Lyons said he wants to create the homeless
program during his personal time and get
people practicing by fall.
The U.S. Homeless Cup is coming to
Washington, D.C., next year either in the
spring or summer, he said.
"Our goal is to have the team compete,"
He is looking for a place to practice, equip-
ment and dothes donations, and recruitment
He said he got the idea two years ago from
a PBS special on homelessness.
Lyons, who grew up with soccer, said he
thought it would be a creative way for the
homeless to have fun and stay in shape.
He said he wants them to be able to partid-
pate, no matter whete they live or what they
have in their pockets.
People are people, Lyons said. Homeless
people are no different.
During the summer, Lyons visited
Charlotte, N.C., to play soccer with the U.S.
national team, Street Soccer 945, which is part
of the national homeless soccer program.
The last time Lyons played soccer was
about eight years ago. He said he remembers a
lot of aggression, tension and swearing.
"It took a lot of the love out of it for me,"
All that changed when he played with
He was more personally satisfied with the
people he met.
"It breaks down every barrier right away,"
Lyons said. "There's just none of that social
stuff in the middle of it."
He said learning about the players was the
most important part of his trip.
"At the end of the day, you break bread,"
Homeless advocate and former city com-
mission candidate Pat Fitzpatrick said the
soccer program could give players dignity
"People can get in bad, tough
spots for any number of reasons."

City adopts budget
..I,,Inca nuup,/ .niaur i w*.L
Gainesville Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan listens to a citizen during the City Commission meeting at City Hall on
By APRIL DUDASH
The Gainesville City
adopted a proposed budget on
There was no citizen debate,
and commissioners did not
delve further into the issue.
Several public workshops
were held in July to discuss the
proposed financial and operat-
ing plan budget.
The budget, which cuts
more than $4 million, will be
implemented during the new
fiscal year, which begins Oct. 1
and ends Sept. 30, 2008.
Becky Rountree, adminis-
trative services director, said
changes were made as a result
of new property tax reform
passed by the state Legislature
earlier this year.
"Our city commission has
not had to go through this level
of cuts in the past," Rountree
It has had a higher impact
on Alachua County than on
Gainesville, she said.
City spokesman Bob Woods
said the city has had to be more
fiscally conservative as a result
of the new budget.
Rountree said they offset the
reduction in funds by propos-
ing new and increased fees.
Examples include a new fire
inspection fee, environmental
protection fees and a commu-
nications services tax that will
show up on cable and phone
Parking meter fines will also
be increased, Rountree said.
Cuts were made through
changes in department organi-
zation, such as the reduction of

"We won't fill positions right
away," Rountree said.
It could possibly come down
to cutting programs or services
in the future, she said.,
Significant cuts may be seen

reform. The worst-case scenario
would be an additional $6.5

all we're doing is treading water."
Edmonds said the board understands that
cuts will have to be made. However, he said, the .
Legislature has historically not fully supported
state universities, leaving Florida universities with
the worst student-faculty ratios in the country.
"It really has a direct correlation to the quality of
education you receive," Edmonds said.
Edmonds said right now, tuition only covers
about one-fourth of students' education costs, and
the state should cover the rest. .
"You and the state are supposed to be partners -
in your education," Edmonds said. "Your partner
just pulled out $600."
Because of these changing trends, Fouke con-
firmed that universities might have to depend
more heavily on tuition than state support to fund
education in the future.
Some of Crist's suggestions include cutting the J4
$5 million recently given to UF to hire more faculty
members. Steve Orlando, UF spokesman, said UF
would continue with the hiring process regardless -

Defender oF Faith
UK senior took mission trip to Brazil
By KARL HYPPOLITE
Shelley Lyle walks onto the UF soccer prac-
tice field beaming her familiar smile, brighten-
ing the overcast afternoon.
Lyle serves as the perfect complement to an
already energetic team. She makes bringing a
ray of sunshine to the lives of others not just
a casual endeavor, but also something to live
Lyle, a devout Christian and a member of
the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, was one
of 30 soccer players from around the nation to
take part in a three-week mission trip to Brazil
this summer. There they played soccer and
preached the Gospel to children as young as 4
and as old as 15.
"We would bring soccer balls and go out
and talk with the kids. They live for soccer
there," the senior defender said. "We would
play with them and then share our testimo-
nies. At the end of the day, we would play a
game against" them and teams would random-
ly show up and say, We saw you and want to
play against you.'"
Lyle learned about the mission, run by
the Chicago Eagles soccer dub, in an e-mail
forwarded to her by her roommate during
the Spring that specified the goals of the trip.
After a bit more research, the Tampa native
was convinced and decided she would make
The soccer players who made the trip
would not be provided with the amenities
that often come with being a collegiate star.
The group of 30 slept in a church during their
stay in Brazil and were not afforded the luxury
But with each goal scored in soccer matches
and each child who accepted Christianity, the
achingof tired legs and pain of sleeping on the
floor melted away.
"It was an amazing experience," Lyle said.
"Soccer is gold over there, and the little kids
are just so cute and they don't come from great
places, so when you see where they come from
it moves you. A lot of them don't wear shoes,
and it's amazing that they don't have broken
toes because all they do is play soccer all day."
Despite her participation in three mission
trips two to the Dominican Republic and
one to Barbados prior to this summer,
her father, Scott, was hesitant about having
his youngest daughter head to Brazil with a
group of people they didn't know.
"She had been on a couple other mission
trips before in high school with our church
groups and choir," he said. "She's been to
them, but Brazil was new and a little scary.
So I really didn't like the thought of her going
overseas, so I was nervous, yeah."
One of the many highlights of her trip was
a day Lyle spent with two little girls who lived
in the slums of Rio de Janeiro. Lyle, who la-
ments not remembering their names, said they
were a bit too thin for 6-year-olds and wary of
Growing up in such a dangerous area, the
girls had developed an innate aversion to
strangers. But after a day filled with hearty
meals and games, the girls eventually warmed
up to her.
"It was so cute," she said. "By the end of
the day they were holding my hands and sit-
ting in my lap when they ate."
After the day's activities had come to an
end, the camp's interpreters asked those who
had accepted Christianity that day to raise
their hands, and among the large group it was
the tiniest pairs of hands that meant the most
"It just brought tears to my eyes," she said.
"To see those two little girls ... it meant the
world to me."
"We would bring soccer balls and
go out and talk with the kids. They
live for soccer there."
The language barrier was one of the many
hurdles the missionaries would have to over-
come. Though they brought interpreters with
them, the group needed something to help
them relate to children who were as much as
ten years younger than they were..
And that's where soccer came in.
Brazil is one of the most soccer-crazed
countries in the world, and while none of
the children Lyle met spoke English, they all
spoke the same language on the field.
"You go to a lot of places and you don't
speak their language and they don't know
you. They just know that you're American,"
Lyle said. "But they know sports because they
play it. And I think the first way to get them
interested in what you're there for is by show-
ing them the love of the game."
According to her coaches and teammates,
Lyle shows a love of the game even Brazilians
have to respect.
"She definitely brings an intensity to the
game," UF coach Becky Burleigh said. "She's
one of the toughest players out there, and
more importantly, she does a lot of things
Lyle's approach to the game gained her a
lot of respect among the young men in Brazil,
who often aren't accustomed to seeing women
play soccer, much less excel at the sport.
"It's definitely something different "to

them," Lyle said.
Lyle's eligibility will be exhausted at the
dose of this season, which she hopes con-
dudes with a national championship, but she
doesn't intend to hang up her cleats. Lyle, a
political science major, hopes to blend her
passion for soccer, her interest in international
relations and her desire to help others.
Exactly what she wants to do, well, she's
not even sure about that yet.
"I definitely want to continue helping
people and traveling as much as I can," she
said. "I don't have a career path I'm trying to
dimb my way up, but I think I have an idea of
what I want to do."
Expect her to figure it out soon though.
After all, for Lyle, helping others isn't just a
casual endeavor. It's a way of life.
UF MEN'S GOLF
Gators in middle of pack without All-American Horschel
By ANDY HUTCHINS
For the UF men's golf team,
life without All-American Billy
Horschel is a little rough.
Horschel, who was returning
from Ireland after competing with
the US team in Walker Cup matches
over the weekend, was unable to
help lead UF over 36 holes of play
at the season-opening Inverness
Invitational in Toledo, Ohio.
Thjunior's presence was sorely
missed, as the Gators shot a com-
bined 12-over 296 on the par-71
course in the morning round good
for eighth place in the 16-team tour-
Sophomore Tyson Alexander led
UF in the afternoon with a three-
under 68 keyed by an eagle on the
11th hole. The Gainesville native
matched his career-best single-
Combined with senior Manuel
Villegas' two-under 69, the duo
helped the Gators regroup in the
second round to fire an even par
284, second only to afternoon leader
Florida State's three-under 281.
The effort vaulted No. 4 UF to
sixth place, leaving them 12 shots
off the Seminoles' pace but only
two shots be-

end of Monday's

Alexander Robbie Wight
Alexander followed 75s in
the early action with a 74 and a 73,
respectively, in the afternoon.
Villegas' spotless second round
brought him to even par for the
(tournament and into a three-way
tie for fifth. It was his first time to
shoot under par since his first ca-
reer win at the 2007 SunTrust Gator
"Manny played solid for us to-
day," Coach Buddy Alexander said.
"He missed some putts, but struck
the ball very well to give us a good,
The Colombia native now sits
seven shots behind FSU senior All-
American Jonas Blixt, who blitzed
the course for a tournament-low
four-under 67 in the morning and
an equally impressive 68 in the af-
Blixt holds a two-shot lead over
another member of his threesome,
Michigan State senior Ryan Brehm.
The only UF golfer who didn't
improve later in the day was true
freshman Arnond Vongvanij, whose
two front-nine- double bogeys re-
sulted in a nine-over 80 to go with
his solid morning 73.
The Gators, who took home
Inverness titles in 2002 and 2005 and
placed third in the event last year,
have substantial ground to gain
over today's 18 holes if they hope to
continue their successful streak.

* THE SENIOR SUFFERED
THE INJURY AGAINST TROY.

The Gators will be without
one of their offensive stars for
Saturday's showdown with No. 22
Senior wide receiver Andre
Caldwell will miss the game and
maybe more with a sprained
MCL in his right knee, UF coach
Urban Meyer said Monday.
"That's a blow," Meyer said.
"That's a frontal shot right there."
Caldwell sustained the injury
in the third quarter of No. 5 UF's
59-31 win over Troy on Saturday.
Before his exit, Caldwell had a
poor game by his lofty standards,
gaining 27 yards on five touches,
losing a fumble and dropping a
gimme touchdown reception.
Meyer said the injury is not
painful, but Caldwell could miss
"All I'm going to tell you is he
can't play this week," Meyer said.
"I'll just keep updating each week.
... He heals real fast."
Caldwell, a preseason All-
Southeastern Conference third-
team pick, ranks in the top 12 on
the Gators' all-time receptions and
He has 1,699 career receiving
yards on 133 catches.
He missed nearly all of the

"He was one of the most pol-
ished receivers that we've had

Gators ready for rivalry
By NICK ZACCARDI

It's finally here.
Tennessee week again opens the
Southeastern Conference season for
No. 5 UF (2-0), and everybody knows
how big this rivalry has become.
Even after scoring 108 points in
two games, the Gators'
more to show off.
"We've got a lot of
Foot all weapons and some of
them ain't even exposed
yet," offensive tackle
Carlton Medder said. "We've got three
running backs that are dynamic. You
just haven't seen them yet."
Quarterback Tim Tebow knows
how big this game is.
He has watched or attended UF-
Tennessee games since the early '90s,
and caji rattle off rivalry information
like he's reading from a box score.
"Preparing for a game like
Tennessee, just a rivalry game like that,
it's different," Tebow said. "We talked
about it, how those games are different,
and they're special."
TEBOW EARNS HONOR: Tebow earned
SEC Offensive-Player of the Week hon-
ors, the league announced Monday.
Tebow completed 18 of 25 passes
for 236 yards against Troy, and added
93 rushing yards and two touchdowns
on 17 carries.
He paced UF's offense to touch-
downs on the first seven drives of the

The .Gators offense will be just fine without
Without a doubt, losing its most complete
receiver is not good news, but with plenty of
talented athletes below Caldwell on the depth
chart, the offense should adjust and keep the
momentum from its first two games rolling.
Caldwell has been used on short slants,
deep routes and out of the backfield three
skills that the collective group of healthy re-
ceivers has nailed down.
Riley Cooper proved a viable deep threat

four passes for 122 yards and two scores.

Jarred Fayson and David Nelson haven't been very
involved in the first two games, and freshman speedsters
Deonte Thompson and Chris Rainey have yet to see the field
on offense. Another wideout who could see the field is red-
shirt freshman Justin Williams, who won coaches over with
his work ethic.
Since these players can fill Caldwell's shoes together, the
play-calling won't have to change much, and it may actually
be easier on Urban Meyer and Dan Mullen, who will have
one less person to keep happy.
With all of these playmakers available, there is no receiver
who can't be replaced in UF's offense.
Losing Harvin would certainly be -difficult, but others
could pick up the slack.
When a key player on a team is injured, the search begins

to find a single replacement, but UF can just smooth over the
hole with three or four other athletes.
"To be honest, it doesn't have to be just one guy to try and
fill Bubba's shoes," Ingram said. "Whenever you lose a guy
like Bubba it's definitely big, but with the guys we have at
receiver, most of the time when guys go out we really don't
miss a beat."
The loss of Caldwell could hold a few blessings in dis-
guise. Is it really a bad thing that Harvin might get more
touches? Players like Cooper, Nelson and Fayson will get a
chance to produce in a big-time game, which will come in
handy later in the season.
Caldwell's most important asset is his leadership, which
his young teammates need desperately.
Meyer said Monday that Caldwell will still travel to the
hotel with the team, and he will still be able to motivate and
advise in the locker room and on the sideline.
Obviously, Caldwell's injury is not a positive for the
Gators, but it is not a crushing blow, either.
