Homeless center, coffee shop up for votes
* THE ISSUES WERE APPROVED FOR
By DEVIN CULCLASURE
UF students will have a chance to voice
their opinions on coffee and the homeless in
addition to voting for 47 student senators dur-
ing Student Government's fall election:
The Student Body Supreme Court ap-
proved two referendum questions at a meet-

One question asks whether UF should al-
locate funds to open a student-run homeless
shelter in Gainesville.
The other asks whether UF's administra-
tion should allow SG to fund a nonprofit,
student-run cafe on campus.
Sarah Krantz, SG's supervisor of elections,
said students would have the option of voting
yes or no in response to the questions. They
can also choose to vote only for senators and
ignore the questions.
Krantz said the initiatives would pass if 50
percent of students who choose to vote on the

long process of approval, she added.
"By no means does voting yes enact [the
referenda] as law the next day," she said.
The referenda only serve as a recommen-
dation to the Student Senate if they're passed.
The Senate would still have to decide if it
supports the ideas.

and not use the benches.
"I can't stand directly in front of the bus stop because
they are all over," she said. "I have to stand

News Theresa Harrison, a marketing coordi-

ants have not been brought to her attention,
and there have been no formal reports of problems at any
Ants are a problem that needs to be addressed imme-

Other bus stops are also being affected by fire ants.

EU sponsors UF center
By ILEANA MORALES
Alligator Contributing Writer
UF has become the first American
university to receive a grant from the
European Union to house a Jean Monnet
Centre of Excellence, which will focus on
European integration studies.
The center will eventually have its own
building, said Amie Kreppel, director of
the UF Center for European Studies.
Over the next three years, the EU will
give UF about $205,000 for the program.
"The EU is America's largest trading
partner and our most important political
ally," Kreppel said in a UF press release.
"For Florida, the EU is our biggest for-
eign direct investor," she also said in the
The EU's investments account for more
than 145,000 of Florida's jobs.
Each year a visiting scholar will lead an
intensive course on an annual topic for up
to 25 advanced undergraduate and gradu-
ate students, Kreppel said.
The topic for spring 2008 will be "EU

on European studies that would be fine,"

Though the scholar for spring hasn't
been chosen, speakers from Serbia, Turkey
and the EU commission are being consid-
ered, Kreppel said.
Following the course will be a two-day
workshop, which anyone can attend.
"We've had people from the colleges
of nursing, art history, even architecture,"
Kreppel said. "Not just the standard politi-
cal science and history majors, though we
love them too."
The Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence
will be temporarily located in UF's Center
for European Studies at Turlington Hall.

gest foreign direct investor."

The Jean Monnet center will be more
focused than UF's Center for European
Studies, Kreppel said.
The new center will only address topics
related to the EU, she added.
There are 107 Jean Monnet centers
worldwide. Japan and the United States
were the only non-European countries to
be approved for centers this year, Kreppel
Throughout the school year, the center

LGBT Affairs hosts picnic

UF's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and
Transgender Affairs held a welcoming
picnic Wednesday on the Plaza of the
Nora Spencer, director of LGBT affairs,

The purpose of the event was to openly
welcome gays to the UF campus.
Spencer said about 150 people at-
"We just wanted to have an event so
people could congregate and just hang
out," Spencer said.
LGBT Affairs was created to help make
sure UF's policies are fair to gay students
and employees and to raise awareness.
Although society today is better than
it used to be, gays are still not welcome in
some churches, Spencer said.
This isn't fair to those people because
they can't be true to themselves, she
"Even here in Gainesville there are
churches that are against gays," Spencer
said. "But many accept them."
Spencer said she didn't think it was
fair that they must pretend to be some-
thing they aren't to fit in with their peers.
That's why we hold events like this,
she said, to help gays feel more comfort-
able at UF.
LGBT provides support for lesbian,
gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and

by many as a derogatory term, is becom-
ing more widely used and accepted by the

ten hear of 'queer' music or

mean anything negative."
According to the American Heritage
College Dictionary, the word means devi-
ating from the expected or normal.
"It's intentionally obscure," Spencer
said. "It offers pride and privacy at the
She added that -many people use the
term because they don't necessarily con-
sider themselves strictly gay or lesbian
but rather something between.
The word "queer" can cover all types
of relationships whether it's between two
men, two women or a woman and a trans-
sexual and vice versa, Spencer said.
"Gender is wild," she said. "Some
people just don't want the label."

Another is the dipping of apples in hon-

shouldn't censor Accent
W e hate to say it, but one Student Government organi-
zation is actually doing something right. Not every-
thing, mind you, but well give credit where credit's
Accent prides itself on bringing controversial and noncon-
ventional speakers from all viewpoints and mindsets. Some of
the names they've brought include Ellen Degeneres, Michael
Moore, Ari Fleischer, Kurt Vonnegut, former President George
H. W. Bush and Ross Perot.
So when Accent announced it would pay Dr. Jack Kevorkian
$50,000 to speak, we expected to hear some outcry, but nothing
of this level.
After the Pro-Life Alliance spoke out at Tuesday's Student
Senate meeting about the speaker receiving student money for
his appearance, Senate President Robert Agrusa said he would
form a committee to investigate changing statutes to allow the
Senate to have a say in what speakers Accent brings to UF.
Bad idea, Mr. Senate President.
Kevorkian's notoriety stems from his admittance to assisting
suicides for about 130 terminally ill patients. A hotly debated
issue, no doubt. But is one man speaking about his belief for the
right to die with dignity grounds for censoring the entire future
We can't help but point out that assisted suicide is le-
gal in Oregon, as well as in Switzerland, Belgium and the
Netherlands, according to the Euthanasia Research & Guidance
Organization, and many countries have no precedent on the
legality of euthanasia.
We didn't see the Senate blocking Accent from bringing Bill
Clinton to UF, and he was impeached. No one said no to Ann
Coulter, who many conservatives recognize as crazy.
Accent's been doing something right for the 40 years it's
been around. The organization is right to bring controversy to
campus. We're willing to bet Kevorkian will have thousands of
people lined up to hear him.
College is a time for us to explore new things and expand
our minds we cannot let the Student Senate stifle that.
T hey move around,
barely visible to the na-
ked eye. In silence, they
attack their victims and leave
us in agonizing pain when all
we want to do is get to class.
No, not terrorists. We're talk-
ing about the newest sadistic
wave taking over Gainesville.
Fire ants at Regional
Transit System bus stops.
Students at several bus
stops all over town have
experienced that burning,
tingling sensation and not
the good kind.
The fire ants that have
taken over Gainesville and
. much of the southeastern
United States are actually a
species indigenous to South
America. They probably came
over in cargo shipments in the
1930s, according to the U.S.
Department of Agriculture.
The species is spreading,
and we have no real way of
stopping it. The ants can be
controlled to an extent, but
the process can be laborious
- not to mention painful.
But why wait for RTS to
correct this problem? You
could chalk this up to a new
life experience and use it for
the better. What better way to
practice the ants-in-the-pants
dance, which you can show
off this weekend at the down-
town dubs? Or you could
start a bet among your friends
to see who can endure the
most bites. The prizes could
range from hot sauce to in-
sect-bite ointment. AnS if you
really hate your roommate,
you could start an ant colony
- in his or her bedroom.
But remember: If you stop
riding the bus, the ants win.

Separation of church and television
Want everyone to know that Jesus had absolutely nothing
to do with my success as a writer.
I also hate puppies and kittens, and I throw rocks at
the elderly in my spare time.
Before you stop reading this, Facebook-stalk me and send
me hat6-mail, know this: First, I don't really have a measure
of my success as a writer, unless you count the ninth-grade
English award I won. Second, I'm Jewish. Third, I love pup-
pies. Kittens are okay. And I enjoy helping the elderly.
However, if someday I win a Pulitzer Prize, I will change
my religion to Pulitzerism. Or maybe I won't.
And finally, the apology.
My deepest apologies if my opening line offended any-
one. Obviously you can tell I was mistakenly trying to start
the next Crusade. Or maybe, just maybe, I was parodying
comedian Kathy Griffin's latest Emmy Award acceptance
speech, in which she jokingly denied Jesus' role in the recent
success of her career.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Kathy Griffin
repeated her acceptance speech from the awards show that
will air on E! and said the audience laughed, realizing she
was kidding when she told Jesus to "Suck it."
However, .Catholic League President Bill Donohue de-
cried Griffin's speech, and the Academy of Television Arts &
Sciences said it would censor her comments.
So maybe it wasn't the greatest route to take. No one
should be told to suck it especially Jesus.
I think she should've modeled herself after Sally Field,
who in her 1985 Oscars speech proclaimed, "I can't deny the
fact that you like me right now you like me!" It gets just as
many laughs (perhaps unintended) without the potential for
a religious uprising against Griffin and the Emmys.
But she didn't. And here we are again at another free-
dom-of-speech fork in the road. Just when you thought we

E! reserves the right to pick
and choose what it airs. However, it's dangerous to allow
religious groups to have a say in what we see on television.
Our First Amendment rights are stomped on enough in this
country without our entertainment being regulated by reli-
The Catholic League, and all other religious groups for
that matter, shouldn't be able to selectively outcry public
actions. So it's offended by Kathy Griffin's joke and not by
every minute of MTV? I guess it's okay to offend the Catholic
League's sensibilities and engage in stereotypical satanic ac-
tivity as long as you don't mention Jesus.
I'm not crucifying the Catholic League or other religious
establishments. I'm scrutinizing the Academy of Television
Arts & Sciences' censoring of a self-deprecating joke truly
directed at the cliche, overdramatic nature of the Emmy
Awards. For the love or unlove of God, lighten up.
Maybe the academy should change its name to the Academy
of Television Arts & Theology.
But let's move on to a more pressing issue: Britney Spears'
doped-up "comeback" performance at the MTV Video Music
Awards. If that's not blasphemous, I don't know what is.

Letters to the Editor
UF should not influence drink choices
An editorial in Wednesday's Alligator
talked about the increased prices of soda,
which are intended to encourage Gators to
be healthier. Unfortunately, it missed the most
important problem with this policy: It is not in
any way the job of UF to encourage people to
If I want to drink lots of soda and make
myself obese, that is well within my rights,
and this university or any government institu-
tion cannot discourage me from doing so. The
fact that soda is unhealthy should in no way
determine its price. That factor requires con-
sideration from only one person the person
drinking the soda. In my mind, this is just one
more example of the unfortunate trend of re-
ducing personal freedom.
UF graduate student
Low tuition, UF's size go hand in hand
It's outrageous to hear people who attend
UF talking about shutting the door on those
who haven't had the chance to experience UF.
The Bright Futures program has allowed
students who would otherwise either leave
Florida or not go to college at all to stay in our
state and do great things with their lives. -
It is one thing to complain about a scholar-
ship being too generous to others if you pay
your own tuition. But if you receive aid yet
complain because your scholarship makes
your school less exclusive, you're a hypocrite.
Our school benefits from its size. With its
large scale, UF can support a broad range of
organizations and activities because it has so
many students to offer them to.
Instead of trying to shut students out of UF
so people can feel like they're "more than just
a number," people dissatisfied with Florida's
scholarships and UF's size should just go
somewhere that focuses on paid tuition and
small class sizes, and let the rest of us appreci-
ate the benefits brought by 48,000 diverse stu-
dents to this university from across the state
and around the world.
Florida must keep Bright Futures Scholarship Program
To all you Florida residents,
take a lesson from your neigh-
bor to the north: Don't let leg-
islators change Bright Futures.
It's an awesome program that
opens doors for students who other-
wise wouldn't be able to afford col-
lege. I'm sure many students at UF
are nearly dependent upon Bright
Futures, and even those who aren't
can surely appreciate the value.
But what's not awesome? The
program Brigfht Futures was mod-
eled after. We Georgia natives know
it as Helping Outstanding Pupils
Educationally, or HOPE, though
perhaps HOPEless is a better term.
The grading standards for HOPE
were recently adjusted. This made
the required B-average grade harder
to get. As a result, many Georgia
students will not be able to afford to
attend college. Now that's a shame.
As it was, HOPE gave a second
chance to high-school students who
were late bloomers academically.
Plus, there is plenty of money to
finance the numerous students the
program supports. HOPE is paid
for by the Georgia Lottery, which
Daniel has recently

shouldn't have to pay out so much
money in scholarships. I say that's a
load of crap.
This is a Georgia issue now, but
Florida legislators are plotting simi-
lar schemes to deny students cover-
age. Do not let that happen.
Education is of the utmost impor-
tance for growth and development.
Gov. Charlie Crist seems stalwart in
his efforts to prevent tuition raises.
Still, he can only do so much.
Officials are trying to null Bright
Futures' effectiveness by simply
going around it. In July, the state's
university-oversight board voted to
raise tuition in the spring. As of now,
Bright Futures will not be recali-
brated to keep up with the increase,
and the people responsible for this
are fully aware of it. You think UF
students won't eventually feel the
pressure as well? Dream on.
Whether funding decreases or
simply lags behind ever-increasing
tuition, Bright Futures will face some
serious tribulations in the future.
It is the duty of Florida students
to resist attempts to limit Bright
Futures. Many of you know what
it's like to barely be able to afford
college. You should understand the
threats that will soon face your edu-
cations. This isn't something you
can afford to be apathetic about..
HOPE is already becoming hope-
less. Don't let the state put a shadow
over Bright Futures.

Sustainability organization holds first meeting
By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Contributing Writer
Tracey Chace witnessed what
she said was a horrific sight: a
maintenance man driving a gas-
powered John Deere Gator to pick
up trash. -
While the vehicle was running,
the man waited for students to
walk by and drove 10 feet away to
pick something up off the ground,

SFFCC sophomore, used her story
to start the first meeting of Saints

The walls of the "Outhouse" are a shrine
to all that is American pop culture. The resi-

cinema and '90s rock bands through DVDs
and posters on the walls.
This would be a typical college bachelor

Adams Out, the progressive rock-pop band
that has been living and playing together lo-
cally for slightly more than three years, will
release their new full-length album, "This
Old Soul," on Friday.
"The new album is vastly different than
anything any band has done before," said
Chris Chaires, a guitarist for Adams Out.
"It's a new genre and includes theatrical
The sound is going to feature alternative
percussions as well as modern recording
techniques, he said.

The band, which consists of West Palm
Beach natives Chaires, lead vocalist Dan
Barnhart, guitarist Matthew Houlihan, bass-
ist Jon Bush and drummer/backup vocalist
Dylan Samore, moved to Gainesville to go
The decision to buy a house and live to-
gether came shortly after. The band members
knew they wanted to stay together and try
their luck in a town that offered a more di-
verse and opportunistic music scene.
"We were growing out of the West Palm
Beach scene and came to Gainesville to try to
progress," Barnhart said.
Since their arrival, the band's popularity
has grown and they've opened for some of
the biggest acts to play in Gainesville.
Longtime friend and fan Sheria Polk said,
"I've been going to their shows since high
school, and it's always great to see how much
they've grown and gotten better over the
But now the boys have decided to slow
down and give the public one last chance to
see them in action.
F irewell to Fans
A CD release party will be held Friday at
the 1982 Bar, and it is sure to be a bittersweet
celebration for the bandmates and their fans.
The event marks the day of their highly
anticipated new album release as well as the
night of their last show before going on a hia-
tus, Barnhart said.
Although this seems like the end of an era
for the band, it doesn't mean it's the end of
the road for these gifted musicians.
"I think they all recognize that they love
the band, and it's been a great part of their
lives, but it's time for them to move on and
pursue other- things," Polk said. "Exciting
things are happening for all of them."
Bush, Samore and Chaires will continue to
use their musical talents around Gainesville
in their band Kings of Pain, which is a, tribute
to the band The Police.
All the fans who have fallen for Adams
Out's fun and innovative entertainment can
rest easy knowing it's not completely over.
As Barnhart assured Adams Out followers,
"Everyone's going to keep playing music."
* Are hookups the modern 'free love' revolution?
SoEvheywhere I turn it seems someone (usually someone
older than 30) is bashing the so-called "hookup culture." And
yet I know only a handful of people who don't somehow
engage in it.
* As I've come to know it, a "hookup" is a catchall phrase
for a brief sexual encounter ranging from kissing to inter-
course. "Subversive," "demoralizing" and "unfulfilling" are
the terms most associated with the act. For women especially,
the stigma is intense.
To the critic I otter this ;ou are retrograde and narrow-
In the 19601S counterculture the idea of "tree love" was
conceit. ed and immediately hinked with promiscuitv and de-
viance But 'tree Iove" wa\\ much more than that It never ad-
vocated unhealthy sexual relabonship- instead it advanced
the idea that love and se\ual relabonshipzs should be free of
government and rehgious lurisdiction
"Free love" allows me to have this very job because it at-
tempted to lift the taboo associated with sex as a normal part
of public discourse.
Hookups today are similarly attacked for not falling
within society's predefined courtship patterns.
For as long as I can remember, we've been taught there
is no set way of doing things. Who's to say that our hookup
culture is not making us more sexually savvy?
For me, hookups have been both rewarding and unsatis-
fying experiences. I have learned a good deal about myself
sexually, and I've felt powerful and sexy by engaging in a
sexual act for only the pure pleasure it brings.
At the same time, I have felt sad on some occasions when
my hookup partner did not call me or when I craved a deeper
emotional connection. But can't the same sentiments be ap-
phed to s'o-calledd /"ormalf relationships as well? There will
'always be favorable returns as well as disappointments in
The basic question I see here is this:
Can sex, or more broadly, sexual acts
without love, still be gratifying? For
me, the answer is a resounding "yes."
For others, that is not always the case,
and that's perfectly acceptable, too.
Our culture should have an open mind for those who en-
gage in both hookups and traditional relationships.
As long as it's an act of your own free and you're being
safe, is it really so harmful? Central to that equation is com-
munication, which is the cornerstone of all relationships.
Perhaps I simply view "the hookup" as another item to be
enjoyed on the sexual pu pu platter.
Like "free love" before it, hookups extol an important
virtue: Love and sex exist in various forms, none of which
should be judged or controlled.

'Shoot 'Em Up' a full-length WB cartoon
The poster for "Shoot 'Em Up" brings
to mind the work of John Woo before he
started wasting his talent in Hollywood:
Clive Owen, ever the new icon of modern,
tough-guy cool, firing two pistols midair a
la Chow Yun Fat.
Also like Woo's films, the action is de-
picted so beautifully it could be a ballet:It
also helps that the movie was shot by Peter
Pau, the cinematographer of "Crouching
Tiger, Hidden Dragon" and Woo's "The
The similarities end there, however, as
"Shoot 'Emn Up" eschews the typical Woo
narrative of heroism and honor in favor
of a violent romp in which Owen, with
the help of a prostitute (Monica Bellucci),
must save a mysterious baby from an army
of gunmen led by Paul Giamatti. In other
words, it's "Children of Men" as conceived
by someone who has watched "Crank" too

shoulders as the angry, misanthropic Smith.

With a title like "Shoot 'Em Up," it's very
dear that one need not take the proceedings
seriously. Writer-director Michael Davis
treats the film like a Bugs Bunny cartoon
with firearms, complete with Owen con-
stantly munching on carrots and Giamatti as
Elmer Fudd. All it's missing is people being
crushed by anvils. It can be hard to swallow,
especially if you were hoping for an action
movie that has the slightest regard for the
laws of physics, well-written plot develop-
ment or typical boring film exposition.
By the ending credits, thematic elements
became the biggest question. Is the film a
pasbche ot lohn \Voo and Looney Tunes,
or is it a satire of .American gun culture and
violence' IMhchael Davis. openly mocking
both stances on gun control, never takes
a firm position hlmsetf. instead pointing
out such oddities as our fascination \with
violence from birth, the supposed correla-
tion between violencee and music and the
paradox of safety mechanisms on guns.
"This is the only safety," Smith says, extend-
ing his trigger finger. The only way the film
works as something other than a live-action
cartoons to look at it as a satire of the absur-
dity of it all. If there's one thing that "Shoot
'Emr Up" definitely is, it's absurd.
In the theater, as I listened to the laughter
at the over-the-top violence, I began to think
"Shoot 'Em Up" doubled as a cinematic
Rorschach test, holding up a mirror to its
bloodthirsty audience with one hand while
distracting it via comedic violence with the

Harris wins honors after debut at forward position
By KARL HYPPOLITE
After the biggest offensive out-
burst of her career, Ashley Harris
is drawing a lot of attention.
She was named Southeastern
Conference Offensive Player of
the Week and was also named to
the Soccerbuzz.com Elite Team of
Harris scored three goals
against South Florida and Florida
State, matching her career total
prior to last weekend's games.
"It's very much an honor for
me," Harris said. "It's more shock
than anything, being named the
offensive player of the week. And
it's pretty fun since it's the first
time I got to play offense for UF."
Harris played the forward
position for the first time in her
collegiate career this weekend,
and her speed provided the
spark the Gators needed follow-
ing junior Ameera Abdullah's
injury against the Bulls on Friday
night. Following her stellar debut,
Burleigh said Harris will likely
start at forward for the foresee-
"She's so quick off the mark
and every time," Burleigh said.
"She's always around the ball
whether it's defensively or offen-
sively. And you know speed never
ABDULLAH UPDATE: After Abdullah
suffered what appeared to be a se-
rious injury, it seems UF may not
be without its preseason All-SEC
midfielder for very long.
Burleigh said Monday that X-
rays of Abdullah's left ankle came
back negative for serious damage,
and it's only a matter of time be-
fore she returns.
"She's pretty bruised and sore,
so we'll just have to wait and see
how long it takes to get it out of
her system," Burleigh said.
Abdullah was hurt in a colli-
sion with USF goalkeeper Mallori
Though it is highly unlikely at
this point, Burleigh left open the
possibility that Abdullah could
make an immediate return.
"I'd be surprised if she could
play this weekend, but you never
know," Burleigh said. "(Trainer)
Emily Keifer does a great job of
getting our players back as quick-
ly as she can."

Tying ties a trying task for Gators football players
* MANY PLAYERS NEED ASSIS-
TANCE FROM TEAMMATES.
By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
Every Saturday morning, Tate Casey
knows they'll come knocking.
He knows who's coming because it has
been the same ones for four years. His team-
mates are having wardrobe problems.
"If I had to put my money on it, out of the
60 guys on the team there's probably 15 to 20
that can actually tie a tie," said-Casey, who
is one of those precious few. "Man, I've done
too many ties in my lifetime. We'd always
go to church when I was growing up, so my
mom always made us dress ourselves. Tying
was one of those things [I learned] by age 8."
For their weekly Gator Walk into The
Swamp, many of the players hook themselves
up with pastel-colored suits, some of which
come from their high school proms. When it
comes to looping up the finishing touches on
their Saturday best, they're dueless.
"I don't know how'to tie a tie yet," fifth-
year senior offensive tackle Carlton Medder
said. "I'm 22 years old. I don't know how to
tie a tie." '
So; why not learn?
"Yeah [I try to teach them], but they don't
listen," Casey said. "It's the same guys com-
ing back every time."
Even Medder admits it goes in one ear
and out the other.
"I don't know," he said. "I don't care. Tate
tried to teach me, but I wasn't paying atten-
Medder is not alone in his refusal to learn,
but at least some players have found alterna-
tive methods to the tying process.
Junior defensive end
Derrick Harvey, who ad-
mits he doesn't know the
first thing about tying ties,
keeps the same tie hung
and knotted on the same
shirt in his closet.
"I don't ever let it
casey move," Harvey said. "I
take [the shirt] off and put
it in my closet."
Players that claim they know how to
knot up include Tim Tebow, Dorian Munroe,
Maurice Hurt, Brandon James and Cornelius
Coaches have also been known to help
out those in need of a Saturday morning
"I go to the older guys," said freshman
safety Major Wright, who said he sought out
Munroe before his first ever Gator Walk.
As a near-lifetime tie expert, Casey just
doesn't understand his teammates off-the-
"All. of them talk about going to church
and this and that. It kind of makes you
wonder what they wear," Casey said. "As
many flashy suits as we got rolling around
in the locker room, you would have thought
somebody would've taught these guys how
to tie a tie.
"We try and make it as easy as possible
- it's not rocket science."
Loss would push Vols' record to 1-2
STEELE, from page 20
had to jump in at right guard with se-
nior Carlton Medder moving back to
his original position of right tackle.
With a freshman starting at guard
on opening day for the first time in
school history and learning he
would do so just four days before-
hand an adjustment period was
expected. But there wasn't much of a
learning curve, if any.
Medder said that if Maurkice con-
tinues at his current pace, he'll prob-
ably be a freshman All-American.
Maurkice hasn't been perfect, but he
hasn't been responsible for Tebow
falling flat on his back, either.
Miller and Medder deserve a lot of
credit for this success, too.
Through two games, there has
very rarely been any confusion in
formations on the line, and Meyer
is relying on Miller to know where
everyone should be on every play. So
far, so good.
Meyer said he wasn't sure if some
of the backup linemen wanted it bad
enough, but he did say Mike Pouncey
and Maurice Hurt are putting forth
strong efforts in practice.
Though the likes of Carl Johnson
and Marcus Gilbert are not ready to
contribute full time, the Gators aren't
completely lacking depth.
Considering they lost arguably
their top lineman, that's not bad.
So if you see these giants on cam-
pus, give them some kudos. Just don't
offer to buy them a meal you prob-
ably can't afford it.
Seriously, the Pouncey twins told
me "cooks start sweating" when they
Yikes. Buy them dinner, and you'll
be taking out a student loan.
FULM ER, from page 20
Then LSU slipped in there, and now Florida's
back up at the top and now everybody's chas-
ing the Gators right now."
For Fulmer's sake, the Vols' next turn bet-
ter come quickly. Since 2000, Web sites such as
FireFulmer.net and FireCoachFulmer.com have
Meyer took the UF job from Ron Zook, the
namesake of one of the most famous anti-coach
Web sites, FireRonZook.com.
Naomi Wilkinson was a sophomore at
Tennessee when the Vols' won the 1998 na-
Wilkinson, the vice president of the
Jacksonville Chapter of the Tennessee National
Alumni Association, is as big a Fulmer backer
as any alum.
But even she realizes what the majority of
Vol' Nation expects.
"I'd say they're about ready for him to win
another national championship," Wilkinson
"Seven or eight years, it's time we had to get
a whole new batch of Vols' in there, recruits, a
new team. I'd say it's about time to have an-
other winning team."
A loss Saturday would make the No. 22
Volunteers a losing team thus far, giving them
a 1-2 record.
"It's a mind game when we play
Florida. We either show up or we
don't show up."
Tennessee National Alumni Association
Jacksonville chapter vice president
The betting line on Saturday's game opened
with the Gators as 1-point favorites, according
to Yahoo! Sports.
As of Wednesday, that margin rose to 7 1/2.
Everybody seems to be picking the Gators.
And if everybody is right come Saturday
night, there's only one way to describe the out-
come for Tennessee.
"It would stink," Wilkinson said.'"It's a
mind game when we play Florida. We either
show up or we don't show up."

Looking at the big picture,
Fulmer boasts great success since
taking over in Knoxville in 1992.
He has gone 138-42, and his

Tennessee claimed the 1998 national

But Fulmer remains confident
in the ever-changing Southestern

said. "You're always chasing who
the leader is. When I started this, it

Meyer to team: be excited
By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Staff Writer
When a young Gators squad steps
onto the field to face Tennessee on
Saturday, UF coach Urban Meyer
wants his players to ignore the adage,
"Act like you've been there before."
"That would be a phony act,"
Meyer said. "I want them to be ex-
cited. I want them to hyperventilate a
little bit. ... The atmosphere is going
to be a touch different [than the first
The Gators will start two true fresh-
men cornerback Joe Haden and
offensive guard Maurkice Pouncey
- and there are a slew of other play-
ers who will see their first significant
big game action.
Meyer said it is important that the
players are confident in themselves
when they walk off the practice field
Thursday, their final practice before
the rivalry showdown.
"When I'm walking off this field,
this team has got to be feeling great

"When the play's called, if they're
thinking about their assignment,
there's a good chance they'll fail.
They had too much of that today. I
saw guys thinking, 'Where do I get

"We always look [at the other
team's signals]," Meyer said. "We
don't video it.
"If we did, I wouldn't tell you we
did," he joked.

Linemen deserve more credit
Everyone is starting to wonder how the
wide receiver corps is going to react with-
out its leader, Andre Caldwell.
Well, here's a suggestion: go ask the of-
They lost one of their best leaders in pre-
season All-Southeastern Conference tackle
Phil Trautwein, and they've been just fine.
Trautwein suffered a stress fracture in
his right foot just four days before the sea-
son opener against Western Kentucky, and
UF coach Urban Meyer has said there's a
chance he's done for the season.
The offensive line didn't look' good
during the third quarter against Troy, but
neither did anybody else on the team. It's
hard ft blame players for losing focus when
they've scored touchdowns on seven con-
secutive drives. If I were an offensive line-
man, my thoughts would have been on the
postgame buffet, too.
That quarter excluded, quarterback Tim
Tebow has had time to make all his checks
and decide whether he wants to throw a
dart to one of his speedsters or take off
running and demolish a linebacker Tebow-

asking all Gators fans to wear blue at
Saturday's game against Tennessee. He
hopes to eliminate as much orange as
possible since Tennessee also wears a
shade of the color.
Running back Kestahn Moore has had
holes to run through as well.
It was only Western Kentucky and
Troy, you say? Go tell that to the defense
who allowed 31 points against the Trojans
and whose secondary has still not proven
at it, let's also say
that Tebow can't
pass just because he
played those cream-

Going into the season, Trautwein and

their starters from last season's champion-

scenario, and freshman Maurkice Pouncey
