UF celebrates win against Vols ,--
By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
It happened quietly in a split second
by UF's bench, but safety Tony Joiner
might as well have shouted his mes-
sage over The Swamp's loudspeakers
Joiner pecked Tim Tebow near his
left ear after the quarterback rushed for
a touchdown in the second quarter. The
innocent smooch served as a bold proc-
Kiss the game goodbye, Tennessee.
"That's not the first time that's hap-
pened," Tebow said, smiling. "Knowing
Tony, I'm surprised it wasn't farther
Judging by UF's 59-20 victory against
the Volunteers, it's easy to see why the
sophomore was in such good spirits.
What promised to be UF's first heated
battle of the season turned into a display
of dominance by the Gators.
When Percy Harvin wasn't making
jaws drop, Brandon James was breaking
ankles. When Jermaine Cunningham
wasn't plowing into, unsuspecting ball
carriers, Markihe Anderson was picking
off passes. When Tebow wasn't leaping
into the end zone, he was darting deep
passes over the heads of defenders.
The only orange sections of the sta-
dium thinned considerably when Tebow
rushed in for a touchdown with 11:25
remaining in the fourth quarter to up the
Soon, all that was
left was a giant sea of

Some were more
creative with their at-
Joiner tempts to blue-out the
stadium than others.
A group of students body-painted
themselves blue, and they used white
paint to spell out the individual letters of
"Fear The Swamp!"
The fans' sentiments toward their
rival were displayed on signs like,
"Thanks for volunteering to be Gator
Bait" and "Char Broiled Smokey," a ref-
erence to Tennessee's mascot.

UF student dies in crash
By KIM WILMATH
A UF student died early Friday morning in
a single-vehicle car accident.
The accident occurred at about 2:30 a.m. on
Southwest 13th Street near 16th Avenue, said
Steve Orlando, UF's spokesman.
Orlando said Andrew A. Enriquez, a 20-
year-old UF history junior, was a transfer
student from SFCC and originally from Key
The cause of death has not yet been deter-
mined. Enriquez's family could not be reached
At a Friday meeting of UF's Board of
Trustees, UF President Bernie Machen said
Enriquez died wearing an armband from a
bar and with a forged ID.
"This is a tragic result of underage drinking
in our community," Machen said during the
meeting. "It's particularly sobering."
"This is a tragic result of under-
age drinking in our community."
The accident happened a week after UF
hosted a meeting to discuss ways to curb
student alcohol abuse. Machen said Friday's
accident proves there is still work to be done.
He said the accident provides a reason for
UF to keep fighting against binge drinking.

UF administrators are planning extra bud-
get cuts to fund UF programs.
UF President Bernie Machen announced
at a Friday meeting of UF's Board of Trustees
that UF's planned $34 million cut is about $9
million more than the 4 percent cut mandated
by Gov. Charlie Crist.
A4 percent cut from UF's budget of $4.377
billion would be about $26.9 million, Machen
Money from extra cuts will fund several
UF programs and salary raises for faculty.
The Florida .Opportunity Scholars
Program, which funds tuition for students
who are the first members of their families
to attend college, will receive $3 million from
UF, Machen said.
The Florida Legislature formerly paid for
half of those costs, but it recently cut funding
for the program from its budget. Now, UF
will have to foot the whole bill.
Machen also said faculty members pro-
moted during the summer would get the pay
increases they were promised. The raises will
require a cut of $1.3 million.
Another $1.7 million would be used for
utility expenses, and $1.1 million will go to-
ward graduate student health care.
The total reduction will be about $34 mil-
"We believe this to be a realistic number,"
Machen said at the meeting. "I don't think
you need to worry that we're going to offer
up more than we have to."
Crossing her fingers, UF Provost Janie
Fouke said everyone is hoping the $34 mil-
lion will be the extent of the cuts.
It could be more or it could be less, Fouke
added, saying no one would know the ex-
act amount until the Legislature meets in
In addition to the initial 4 percent cut, Crist
proposed slashes of about $600 per student in
the State University System.
Part of that would take back the $5 million
promised to UF for 15 new faculty hires.
UF administrators have already begun
advertising for five of those positions and
said they would not stop until the Legislature
makes its final decision.
During the meeting Friday, Machen said
- he hopes the Legislature recognizes the huge
impact UF has on the state's economy.
If UF were a business, it would be the 16th
largest business in the state, he said. That's
bigger than Outback Steakhouse, he added.
"The optimist in me really does
see a silver lining even in these
chairwoman of the UF Board of Trustees
Machen said UF's Bureau of Economic
Business Research estimated that UF con-
tributes more than $6 million to Florida's
Shands at UF provides about 25,000 jobs,
he said, which is about a quarter of North
Florida's job market. Machen said UF im-
pacts about 53 percent of jobs in this region
"We are an economic engine in the truest
sense," he said, adding that cutting heavily
from UF would be detrimental for the "future
of the state."
Dianna Morgan, chairwoman of the
board, said UF's financial -future may seem
gloomy, but she sees the budget cuts as op-
portunities for improvement.
Morgan said for the first time, the State
University System is closely examining how
much money comes from tuition and how
much should come from the state.
"The optimist in me really does see a
silver lining even in these difficult times,"

The festival, part of Hispanic
Heritage Month, features a free

"A group of us decided it was

The film festival's opening
movie was a documentary called
"Encajar en el Mundo," which
translates to "Weaving One's

The film depicts the journey
of artist Antonio Martorell and
a group of experienced Puerto
Rican lace weavers that have
constructed an enormous stage
curtain out of white bobbin lace
for the Raul Julia Theater at the
Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico.
The movie showed how the
artist came up with the idea for
the curtain and-the effort that
went into making it.

Party's platform is more
of the same
We're not gonna sugarcoat this: We've seen the Progress
Party's platform before.
Increasing Student Government transparency,
fixing WebMail and Regional Transit System bus routes, and
handing out condoms all over campus have been highlighted
in every party platform ever.
OK, we might be exaggerating just a tad, but the point is,
nothing really new ever comes from party platforms.
Or does it?
We must admit we're intrigued by Progress' desire to move
from the God-awful WebMail service to the tried-and-true
Gmail interface. Several universities, including Northwestern
and Arizona State, already use the technology. Progress says
replacing WebMail could actually save UF money. If this is true,
nothing should hold UF back from making the switch, regard-
less of which political party wins the election.
But we can't help but be cynical about reforming SG and
making it more transparent. Capping election spending is
easier said than done. We're sure candidates spend plenty of
money campaigning unofficially buying beer at The Swamp
Restaurant and lunch for hungry supporters can't be cheap.
And reducing the number of cabinet positions never seems
to work. Those cabinets are like gray hairs. For every one SG
gets rid of, two more come back in its place. And we still have
no due what the point of the Orange and Blue Cabinet is, but
somehow that one merits two yes, two directors.
Progress also wants to reroute RTS buses or add buses to
routes. The issue here isn't having more buses. It's about having
more buses when students need them most. Students should
not have to wait 45 minutes for a bus and end up late for class.
We need more buses at peak times, not at all times.
If Progress can prove it can correct the bus problem at a
reasonable cost it will have students' attention. Here's a hint-
Start collecting data now and have answers before the election.
You won't get voted in on the possibility of finding a solution.
And claiming it will end SG's "adversarial relationship"
with the Alligator is a nice concept, but sorry, guys. We won't be
getting buddy-buddy anytime soon. Of course, we will-gladly
praise SG for a job well done when and if the time comes. Why,
if we were friends, how could we report on SG abuses of money
A Senseless Death
Only a few hours after
a UF student died,
presumably in an
alcohol-related car accident,
UF President Bernie Machen
used the news to fuel the fire
against underage drinking.
Machen announced the
death at Friday's meeting
of UF's Board of Trustees.
We knew usifig it as another
reason against underage
drinking was inevitable, but it
was tasteless to bring it up just
hours after the tragedy.
But there's no denying we
must learn from this.
Machen speaks as though
this is only UF's burden to
bear, but it's not. This is the
entire Gainesville communi-
ty's problem. UF has formed
a community coalition to
help prevent student alcohol
abuse. Incoming students

Homeless solution makes things worse
s I was recycling my stack of week-old Alligators that
I had been using as a biodegradable pillow, I realized
the local homeless population has come upon even
harder times than usual. Homelessness is not a crime, so why
has local government turned the homeless into criminals?
On Tuesday, the Alachua County Commission voted
unanimously to outlaw panhandling. This comes about two
months after the city passed a similar ban. Now, any kind
of transaction between motorists and pedestrians is illegal
- which even includes those firefighters who collect money
for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
The ordinance says soliciting "distracts drivers from
their primary duty to watch traffic and potential hazards in
the road, observe all traffic signals or warnings, and move
through the county's streets and intersections in a lawful and
So where are the homeless to go? They can still ask for our
help in parking lots, I guess. If not, there's always a chance to
go back to the drawing board down at Tent City. Wait, no, not
anymore. Wednesday marked the beginning of the "removal
process" of the homeless who call Tent City home.
This may seem like a solution,but there isn't enough space
in the county's shelters. Now the homeless will be forced to
find other places to pitch their tents around town. At least the
city knew where to find them before. The local government
should have waited until it could offer a real solution.
Wait, this just in. We have a real solution: soccer!
That's right; a manager for the Gainesville Community
Redevelopment Agency wants' to start a homeless soccer
program and form a team that may eventually compete in
the U.S. Homeless Cup, which would naturally come before
the Homeless World Cup.
In order to qualify for the team, you have to prove home-
lessness at some point during the past two years. Does that
week in August before move-in day count?
The only thing I have against
panhandlers is their "creative" signs,
such as "Will work for food," or my
new favorite, "Currently seeking
|alternatives to interiors; donations
appreciated." I would appreciate an
Vincent MassarO honest, "Give me money, please."
email@example.com Allow me to tell you a story.
I went to Washington, D.C., in
July to visit a friend. When I was
able to see beyond the tourists, aspiring politicians and col-
lege students who crowded the city streets, I saw D.C.'s most
underappreciated population the homeless.
More importantly, they saw me, and they never passed
up an opportunity to say hello or ask me for money
"Hey, bud, can you spare some change?" one man asked.
I replied honestly, "Sorry, I only carry a debit card."
I became so fed up with their begging that I came up with
a foolproof plan. The next time anyone asked me for cash, I
would return the query. On my last day in Washington, D.C.,
I saw a man holding a Styrofoam cup and sitting on the stoop
of a building near a Metro station. Our eyes met, and he re-
quested monetary aid.
"Funny, I was just about to ask you the same thing," I
quipped. But I was no match.
"How much you need, brother?"
I was dumbstruck, unable to respond. My quick wits
failed me. I hadn't thought of an amount.
And I imagine Alachua County would feel just as sur-
prised if it took a step back and looked at what's actually
happening to its homeless. But the county might not be able
to reach a real solution because these new policies have set us
too far in the wrong direction.

Letters to the Editor
No need to call women 'sluts'
I am writing to reiterate Paige Usyk's col-
umn, "Are hookups the modem 'free love'
revolution?" in Thursday's The Avenue. Why
do people deride the sexuality of women?
Why do people call women sluts? Do they ac-
tually think these women are doing some kind
of evil? If people think being sexually free is
wrong, then try to pass a law. But, of course,,
the law would never pass because there is
nothing wrong with being sexually free.
The only reason people call women sluts
- and I niean the only reason is because
these people are jealous. Why else would
somebody call a woman that word? The defi-
nition of "slut" should be "a derision used by
a jealous person to subvert a woman and her
freedom" and the next definition should be
"a woman who tries to live her life without
concern of social prejudices." However, in
all moral practicality, the word "slut" should
have never existed in any lexicon.
The underlining argument of Usyk's article
and my letter is freedom. People who degrade
women are nothing more than oppressors.
Granted, they are subtle oppressors, but op-
pressors of women's freedom nonetheless.
When are people going to let other people live
free of social harassment?

Bright Futures' requirements too low
I am writing in response to Daniel
Burroughs' guest column in Thursday's
Alligator, "Florida must keep Bright Futures
Scholarship Program." The assertion that
Florida must maintain the Bright Futures pro-
gram unchanged is, at best, misguided.
The state cannot sustain the financial
burden of maintaining Bright Futures' low
standards indefinitely. Bright Futures pays
75 percent tuition for a mediocre 3.0 weighted
high school grade point average and an SAT.
score of 970, which is 51 points below the na-
Furthermore, the argument that modifying
or ending Bright Futures destroys educational
opportunities for low-income students holds
little weight. Bright Futures is merit-based.
In fact, SAT scores and GPAs the award's
criteria have a strong correlation to family
income levels. Many of those who qualify for
Bright Futures are people who don't need it.
Bright Futures panders to middle-income
households. If helping underprivileged stu-
dents were really a priority, some of the money
used to fund Bright Futures could be used to
create need-based scholarships.
Finally, a college education is a privilege,
not a right. The U.S. Cenisus Bureau estimated
that, on average, a bachelor's degree is worth
$1 million more than a high school diploma
in lifetime earnings. By contrast, UF's annual
tuition is $3,200 (60 percent of the national
average for four-year public schools).
Only a very small percentage of students
could not manage this cost with a combination
of loans and need-based aid. The students who
could make an investment in their education
but are not willing to don't deserve to have the
state pay for them. They can simply forgo the
future benefits of a college education.
Kevorkian helped suffering people
In response to William Sanchez's Friday
letter concerning Jack Kevorkian, I have just
one question: Why waste time caring about
this situation? How would his opinion change
after being confronted with a lifetime of pain
and suffering without end.
Would he decide to keep on trucking or
would he throw in the towel and end his life?
If I ever reached a point in my life where
the only thing that greeted me with every new
day was the grim reality of more pain and
agony, then heck, put me out of my misery!
Kevorkian helped people, plain and sim-
ple. It is no one's business to interfere with a
chronic-pain sufferer who chose to lay down
his or her burden and depart this world.
As far as experimenting on prisoners on
death row, why not? If something good comes
out of experimenting on someone whose only
wish was to tear society apart at the seams,
then so be it. In fact, why don't we start of-
fering deals to prisoners: Donate a healthy
kidney, get five years off your sentence.
Kevorkian should not be vilified, but rather
should be applauded for his attempt to ease
the suffering of people who have done noth-
ing to deserve such a fate. In fact, more people
should be like him.

Progress releases goals
By DEVIN CULCLASURE
With the release of its platform Sunday,
Student Government's Progress Party became
the first party competing in the fall election to
officially announce its goals.
Sam Miorelli, general counsel for the
Progress Party, said the party's platform fo-
cuses on common sense .
"There's not really much on our platform
that we had to sit around brainstorming for a
long time to come up with," Miorelli said.
He said some of the goals, such as mak-
ing SG more transparent and responsive to
students, have been featured on past political
Progress also wants to make some new
changes, such as replacing UF's WebMail
system with Google's Gmail.com interface,
Past WebMail reforms by the Gator Party,
such as adding a spam filter, have not been
enough to correct UF's faulty e-mail system,
"Let's not put lipstick on this pig that is
SWebMail," he said. "Let's just scrap it."
Miorelli said Google has successfully
helped other universities make the switch at a
relatively low cost. Replacing WebMail could
be completed by the end of the spring semes-
ter and could actually lower UF's technology
costs, he said.
Miorelli said another main Progress Party
goal is to research the possible rerouting of
Regional Transit System buses to make the
system more efficient.
Placing GPS on the buses was a good start,
he said, but it doesn't solve the problem of
students missing class because their bus is
full. While the Fraternity Row bus might be
relatively empty most of the day, students
west and south of campus face infrequent and
crowded buses, he said.
"There's not really much on our
platform that we had to sit around
brainstorming for a long time to
come up with."
general counsel for the Progress Party
The price tag of many of these "common
sense" reforms would be low, Miorelli added,
especially in the case of making SG more trans-
parent. For example, making phone numbers
for all SG officials readily available. would
provide students with more" access at a small
cost, he said.
"Everybody knows money's tight right
now," he said. "We're not going to need money
to start raining out of the sky to do this."
MiorellUi said the Progress Party's next step
would be to organize volunteers and candi-
dates in preparation for getting the party's
message out. The party's Web site should be
up later this week, he added.
Gator Party President Yooni Yi could not be
reached for comment about the future release
of her party's platform.

The Fall Colors trip in Linville

Held in mid-October at the
peak of fall colors, Linville Gorge
is always one of the most popular
trips, Griffin said.
"It is in a really beautiful part
of North Carolina," he said.
With names such as Pack'n'Trot
Pine Mountain, Hike the Humps
and Backpack to the End of the
Rainbow, TRiP also offers other
outdoor trips including activities
like canoeing, mountain biking
and white-water rafting.
All the excursions are indi-

who did a similar trip on their
own time or knew someone who
did, Griffin said.

Students open LGBTQ assembly with 'Homo Mia'

Frances Rivera was afraid to be her true
self. Neither her friends nor her sorority sisters
knew who she really was, she told a crowd

But one day during her sophomore year,

let her sorority sisters know.
"I have something important to tell you,"
she said, reading from a monologue about the

National champion UF

The 2006-07 men's basketball team

onship rings Saturday at Ben Hill Griffin

Richard got a sneak peak at the piece of
jewelry in an unlikely location.
The Minnesota Timberwolves for-

newspaper clipping, which was hung
in a bathroom stall at Ballyhoo Grill
"It didn't look too good on the draw-

Richard got a better look at the ring
in person when the team was given its
rings in a pre-game ceremony.

some expected, but UF was anything but
bored after the game. I
As the Gators rejoiced with their orange
helmets in hand, pumping toward the sky
to the beat of UF's fight song, Tennessee's
marching band was bent on playing "Rocky
Top" for what seemed like the 1,000th time.
The Volunteers solemnly walked toward
their locker room, heads down, without
acknowledging the tune.
UF fans had difficulty selecting which
hometown star to cheer for. Students sitting
behind the north end zone chanted "Per-cy
Har-vin" while the students sitting along
the sideline roared "Ur-ban Mey-er."
They shouted even more as their beloved
hero, oTebow, lapped half the stadium after
his television interviews to high-five the
fans in the first rows.
Former Minnesota Vikings and Ohio
State receiver Cris Carter and former UF
quarterback Chris Leak soaked it all in from
the field. Leak said it was his first time back
to see a game in The Swamp.
"There's no better game to come back
to," Leak said minutes before the game
ended. "I'm enjoying it."
Dozens of recruits also attended the
game in the hopes of getting a glimpse of
life as a college player.
"I know when I was being recruit-
ed, the first major game I came
to was this game."
While UF linebacker Dustin Doe didn't
know the fate of next season's potential
rookies, he knew how they felt.
"I know when I was being recruited, the
first major game I came to was this game,"
Doe said. "It was just phenomenal. To see

Speedy Harvin picks up slack for injured Caldwell

Percy Harvin did the work of
two men Saturday.
He had no trouble carrying the

receiver Andre Caldwell, Harvin
became Tim Tebow's top target
and "%ennessee's-biggest problem.
The sophomore finished with
13 touches for 195 yards and a
touchdown, doing most of his
damage in the second half.
"We kind of knew it a little bit
with Bubba (Caldwell) going out,"
Harvin said of his increased looks.
"Coach (Urban Meyer) came to me
at halftime and said he was ready
to unleash me a little bit. I took
Meyer and offensive coordina-
tor Dan Mullen went to Harvin on
the first play of the first four series
of the second half.
On the first two drives, he
gained ho-hum 9-yard runs.
He bailed out the offense on the
third possession with a 49-yard
outstretched catch that took the
Gators from their own 1-yard line
"We thrive on being one-on-
one, and we knew we had it,"
Harvin said of Tennessee's failed
Harvin capped the nine-play,
99-yard drive with a 19-yard end-
around for a score.
He took a handoff from Tebow,
sprinted across the field, split two
Tennessee defenders and spun
past another to put the Gators
ahead 42-20 early in the fourth
Behind Tony Joiner and Tebow's
emotional kiss, it was the second
biggest highlight of the game.

Vols' vaunted rushing
trio shut down by UF
* TENNESSEE TOTALED 37
By MIKE MCCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
For the third straight year,
Tennessee couldn't run the ball
There are many reasons why the
Volunteers were blown out by the
Gators 59-20, but their inability to es-
tablish a running game proved most
lethal to their chance of pulling off
Tennessee was held to just 37
yards on the ground, its third straight
sub-100-yard showing against UF.
"We can't do too many things
when we don't run the football well,"
tight end Chris Brown said.
-, "It was very disappointing. We
just didn't do what we needed to
do. UF did, they stopped the run and
they won the football game."
The Vols tallied -11 rushing yards
in their 2006 loss to the Gators, and
just 66 in a 2005 loss.
"They have a nice scheme, and
they do a good job with it," Tennessee
coach Phillip Fulmer said.
"They've got people coming from
all different places it's not some-
thing we haven't seen before. The last
two years we haven't done well. They
do a great job coaching it and a great
job playing it."
"We can't do too many
things when we don't run the
Tennessee tight end
The absence of a running game
also affected the passing game.
Senior quarterback Erik Ainge was
faced with outscoring the Gators by
himself, and when the game turned
into a shoot-out, it was clear UF's Tim
Tebow had much more firepower at
Ainge finished 26 of 41 for 249
yards, one touchdown and one in-
His numbers weren't bad, but they
weren't enough to keep Tennessee in
"I don't think Erik ever did get
into a rhythm," Fulmer said.
Doe dashes UT comeback
By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Staff Writer
Tennessee's comeback bid lasted all of a
With the Gators leading 28-20 with 5:
27 remaining in the third quarter, UF line-
backer Dustin Doe scooped up a fumble by
Tennessee's Arian Foster and took it in for a
The score put the Gators ahead 35-20 fol-
lowing an extra point.
More importantly, it completely changed
the flow of the game, as the Gators pounded
the Volunteers following the fumble return
en route to a 59-20 victory.
"It was phenomenal," Doe said. "You live
for opportunities like these. (It was) game-
Foster's fumble appeared to be unforced,
as the running back never completely se-
cured the ball on the exchange from quarter-
back Erik Ainge.
Because Ainge has a broken finger on his
right hand, the right-handed quarterback has
been handing the ball off with his left hand.
"Whether it was [Foster's] arm that came
down on it, or me getting him the ball late,
I'm not quite sure," Ainge said.
After a scrum of players failed to grab
hold of the ball, it bounced to Doe, who had
a clear path to the end zone.
"Scoop and score," Doe said. "That's all I
was thinking about. Scoop and score."
I Doe's fumble recovery occurred on the
heels of a crucial defensive play by the
Tennessee appeared to be on the verge
of bouncing back from a 15-point halftime
deficit when a 96-yard interception return
by Vols' cornerback Eric Berry cut UF's lead
to 8 following the point after.
The Volunteers forced a punt on UF's next
possession, taking the air out of the crowd
and pushing the momentum in their favor.
That swing would last for one play,
__ when the Gators' defen-
sive touchdown put them
back in the driver's seat
After the defense stole
the momentum back, the
SGators' offense took con-
trol of the game and put
Doe Tennessee away.
"It's 28-20, and we're talking about going
for two the next time we score," Tennessee
coach Phillip Fulmer said.
"All of a sudden the ball pops out, and
it was a huge swing. It just went downhill
UF's defense had forced just two turn-
overs in two games prior to kickoff Saturday,
but the unit came up with three Doe's
fumble recovery and two interceptions
against the Volunteers.
UF coach Urban Meyer stressed the
importance of Doe's play, as well as a first-
quarter interception by cornerback Markihe
Anderson's play kept Tennessee off the
scoreboard after marching to the UF 11-yard
"Those are difference makers," Meyer
said. "Those are game changers."

Gators follow Illinois loss with win against Drake
BY KARL HYPPOLITE
The Ashley Harris and KeLeigh Hudson
show continues for the Gators.
The pair entered the weekend as the
No. 9 UF soccer team's leading scorers,
and following the Gators' 2-0 drub-
bing of Drake on Sunday, they return to
Gainesville with the same title. ,
Harris, whose adjustment to playing
forward has been nothing short of smooth,
scored UF's first goal of the match off of
an 8-yard cross from Hudson in the 57th
"Stacy (Bishop) was getting across and
KeLeigh was cutting in. I wasn't sure if she
was going to get to it or not, so I just came
in when I saw the defender and hit it to the
comer," said Harris, who leads the Gators
with four goals. "I was just looking at the
goal. I knew we needed to score."
Harris' solid play continues to justify
UF coach Becky Burleigh's unexpected de-
cision to shift the senior from defense to
the forward position for the first time in
her collegiate career.
And with midfielder Ameera
Abdullah's injury, Harris' play has been
even more valuable.
"She's an important part of our team,"
Burleigh said. "She- continues to put us
into good positions with her speed, and
