UF students rally for Jena Six
i More than 400
students took part
Alligator Contributing Writer
As thousands of activists converged on Jena,
La., more than 400 UF students participated in
two silent rallies Thursday in support of six black
students involved in a racially charged contro-
The rallies were held on Turlington Plaza and
min the courtyard at the UF law school.
In September 2006, several black students at
:. Jena High School sat under an oak tree where
white students generally congregated. The next
S-.day, the students found three
.. ie National nooses hanging from the tree.
News After several incidents, six
young black men assaulted a
white classmate in December. The men, including
Mychal Bell, now 17, were arrested. Some of the
students' charges were later reduced from sec-
.ond-degree attempted murder to battery.
The rallies coincided with a national day of
action and the day when the first of the Jena Six,
Bell, was originally set to be sentenced for aggra-
vated second-degree battery and conspiracy to
commit aggravated second-degree battery.
The conspiracy conviction was overturned
Sept. 4. The battery conviction was overturned
Sept 14. by a separate appeals court that conclud-
ed Bell should not have been tried as an adult.
On Thursday, a state appeals court ordered
a hearing on whether Bell should still be in jail,
even though his conviction was overturned.

Crist's cuts could stall UF construction

With Gov. Charlie Crist's proposal to
cut state funds for university building
projects, several brand-new buildings
under construction at UF might remain

Panel to be
By KIM WILMATH
The panel of faculty and students
that will look into Monday's Tasering
incident will be ready next week, said
Rick Yost, chair of UF's Faculty Senate.
After a Senate meeting Thursday af-
ternoon, Yost said he had received about
a dozen e-mails from faculty members
interested in joining the panel:
Yost said -the panel would consist
of four students, four faculty members
and a fifth faculty member to serve as
the panel's chair.
UF President Bernie Machen an-
nounced the creation of the panel at a
press conference Tuesday afternoon fol-
lowing the Monday Tasering and arrest
of Andrew Meyer, a UF telecommunica-
"After I create a panel of dis-
cussion, my job is over."
UF Faculty Senate chair
Yost said he had originally suggest-
ed choosing the panel members before
the meeting on Thursday, but he later
decided it would be unwise to stop the
search too soon.
One of the main discussions of the
meeting was the panel's creation. Yost
said multiple faculty members have of-
fered suggestions about what the panel
should focus on.
The panel will review the Tasering
incident, the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement's investigation find-
ings and UF's protocol on handling
similar situations, he said.
Yost said narrowing down the most
qualified candidates for the panel
would be difficult, but compared with
work the members will do, his role is

USA Today editor discusses future of journalism
By PAIGE WILSON
Alligator Contributing Writer
First Amendment rights and
the freedom of the press must
never be tampered with, the edi-
tor of USA Today said Thursday
Ken Paulson, who was named
editor of the paper in 2004, de-'
fended the media and press at the
Freedom of Information Summit
at Emerson Alumni Hall.
Opening with a joke about
the recent Taser conflict at UF,
Paulson brought humor to the
subject of freedom of the press
and the First Amendment.
Ken Paulson,,editor of USA Today, speaks to an audience about how the public regards journalism as
disreputable during a speech at Emerson Alumni Hall on Thursday evening.
"John Kerry spoke an hour.
No wonder they brought out the
Tasers," he said.
Paulson has been part of the
journalism world for three de-
cades and said he remembers
when journalists were seen as
"I worry about the future
of free press, and I wonder
how we're going to protect
and defend it."
USA Today editor
He pointed out that three
comic book icons, Superman, the
Green Hornet and Spiderman,
also had jobs in the media.
"I think I'm the only kid in
America whose heart beat faster
when Clark Kent came on the
scene," he said.
-But he says journalists are no,
longer seen as "good guys." They
are seen as unethical, sleazy and
"I worry about the future of
free press, and I wonder how
we're going to protect and de-
fend it," he said.
But Paulson said not only the
American public's view of the
press and journalism needs to
The change also needs to come
from within newsrooms, he said.
"As an industry, we're doing
a lousy job of defending the First
Amendment," he said.
Paulson said he believes it is
the' job of journalists to be the
watchdogs of government insti-
Americans want the media to
reflect their own biases, Paulson
He says journalists are not the
only ones who need to protect
their First Amendment rights.
Paulson is starting an ad
campaign called the Liberty Tree
Initiative, which promotes the
First Amendment and freedom
of the press.
"I think we need to market
the First Amendment back to the
American people," he said.
Paulson said journalists need
to stand up for what they are
He also said newspapers will
be around for a long time to
He- quoted his favorite movie,
"'That's the press baby, the

6, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 21,2007
It would be an understatement to say we're glad it's Friday.
This all-Andrew-Meyer-all-the-time coverage has just about
driven the Department of Darts & Laurels over the edge. But
nonetheless, we're here for this week's recap of "Tasergate." So
read on, brave souls if you don't, we might Taser you. Enjoy
this week's "Don't Tase me, bro" edition of...
Darts & Laurels
We start off with a was-this-the-response-you-hoped-for?
DART to the Tasered Andrew Meyer. He may have spouted
the catchphrase of the year, but even we cynics have to believe
he didn't mean for this to go as far as it did. People have said
Meyer is a shameless self-promoter, a conspiracy-theory lover
and all-around jackass. It's possible this was all one big public-
But Meyer took it too far. Instead of making it look like he
was merely silenced by Accent and assaulted by the University
Police Department, Meyer spent a night in jail, and he has been
charged with a felony. But it's possible he got just what he
We're equal-opportunity offenders here, so here's a did-it-
have-to-come-to-this? DART for UPD for ... well, you know
why. While we don't think it should have come to a Tasering,
that's not for us to decide. The police were the ones there, but
we hope they learned their lesson: Don't use Taser guns on stu-
dents in front of a U.S. senator and, more importantly, in front of
video cameras. If UPD had moved Meyer away from his audi-
ence it was no longer Sen. John Kerry's at that point and
into the University Auditorium's lobby, he may not have even
needed the Taser treatment. If officers could get him to the back
of the auditorium, surely they could have gotten him through
Next up, we've got a check-out-the-Wikipedia-Web-page-
on-the-First-Amendment DART to protesters claiming Meyer's
right to freedom of speech was taken away from him. Freedom
of speech is a tricky subject -just ask the U.S. Supreme Court.
No one ever had to give Meyer a microphone in the first place.
Kerry didn't have to agree to answer questions.
Meyer wasn't Tasered for what he said. He was Tasered for
how he acted. So for protesters to claim people can be Tasered
for "being obnoxious," as one protester's sign read, is absurd.
Before you write us an angry letter saying we're squelching
your First Amendment right to protest, let it be known that we
fully support the right to protest, just not for stupid reasons. It's
pointless to protest just to protest.
Here's a you-aren't-inciting-a-revolution-you're-just-piss-
ing-people-off DART to the Guy Fawkes wannabes who van-
dalized the late Lt. Corey Dahlem's memorial on the-34th Street
Wall. Even though the Wall is a free space for anyone to paint
on, it's an unspoken rule that the memorial:sections are not to
be touched. And need we remind those jerks that Dahlem was
not a UPD officer. He served the Gainesville Police Department,
which had nothing to do with Monday's event. So to the anony-
mous attention-seekers, hang up your paintbrushes and masks
until there's something really worth fighting for or until
Natalie Portman comes along.
Last but not least, we give a now-that's-what-we-call-360-
degrees-of-coverage DART to media around the world. It's one
thing for them to report the story. It's another for them to sen-
sationalize it, host debates, misspell Meyer's name as "Andrew
Meyers" (good one, Fox News) and have "guest speakers"
analyze what happened. We guess The Gator Nation really is
everywhere including all over your television.
But not all coverage is bad coverage. So we have to hand
a fake-news-is-better-than-real-news LAUREL to "The Daily
Show with Jon Stewart" and "The Colbert Report." Stewart
said the incident was an "unfortunate combination of police
overreaction and .... student douchebaggery," and that getting
Tasered at a Kerry speech is "one of the most pleasant outcomes
of attending a Kerry speech." Stephen Colbert suggested that
Skull and Bones might have something worse than a Tasering
for Meyer. But hey, maybe the society would answer his ques-

Lettersto the Editor
Meyer coverage just what he wanted '
Torture, brutality, injustice. These are only
some of the words to describe Monday's spat.
I had a lot of reservations to overcome in writ-
ing this, knowing full well that the reaction
Andrew Meyer received locally and nationally
is right up his sadistic alley. For being a punk,
he has become something of a martyr.
Since when has humanitarian work be-
come less noble than behaving like a raving,
pompous hooligan, undervaluing rhetoric
to instead turn to sensationalist ranting? He
disrupted the event, and mbre importantly, he
disrespected a guest of this university, political
and personal beliefs aside. That is piggish.
His apparent history of provoking discord
is hardly commendable, and he used the same
tactics Monday. It is scary that Wednesday's
issue of the Alligator was dripping with his
putrid story, disregarding other issues. That is
silencing and an infringement on discourse.
Writhing about in dramatic fashion, disre-
garding warnings of Tasering and throwing.
around words like "bro" reflects on his imma-
turity, and to treat him as some kind of consti-
tutional hero says a lot about the mentality of
people at this school.
Dahlem not related to Meyer incident
Disgusting. Sometimes it's difficult to think
of a good word for something you observe,
but disgusting is just perfect. The 34th Street
Wall has often been a source of distraction
for me, but today I stopped and turned on
my hazards. Who would do something so
What did Lt. Corey Dahlem have to do
with Meyer's Taser incident? He was a cop,
you say? Well, anyone who can read found out
what a great guy he was, Anyone who ever
met or was stopped by Dahlem could find out
what a fair cop he was. He didn't Taser Meyer,
and I'd like to think he wouldn't have.
For those who are against all cops and
believe they should all "rot in prison," stop
blaming the world and blame the parties in-
volved: Meyer, Sen. John Kerry, officer Nicole
Mallo, and Sgt. Eddie King. Focus on the fact
that a student was Tasered, one cop gave an
order, one cop followed and Kerry did nothing
- except continue to answer questions.
To the person or people who defaced a me-
morial, if you have any wisp of a soul left, cor-
rect the damage you caused and write a letter
of apology to the Dahlem family. Don't worry,
bro, with the current situation unfolding, you
have little risk of being Tasered. Nonetheless,
here is the fame and attention you sought.
Here is my letter of disgust. Congratulations.
Defaced Wall,embarrasses Gainesville
The tagging of the Dahlem memorial is one
of the most disgusting acts of self-righteous-
ness I have seen in my time at UF. I am embar-
rassed for the student body.
This display of ignorance surely reflects
poorly on the caliber of students at this uni-
versity. As someone who disagrees with the
actions of the University Police Department,
I am appalled that students would take their
frustrations out in such a disrespectful man-
Have your protests, make your signs, stand
up for what you believe, but do so in a way
that proves the young people of
self-righteous, spoiled punks wi
to prove that we're made out to b
e. Stay dassy,
Meyer incident not a political issue
It's ridiculous that party lines have already
been drawn. Meyer's supporters are "Krishna-
Lunch-eating, college-aged hippies," and
those not supporting him are creating a police
state. All this along the lines dearly marked on
your voting ballots to be cast in a year.
Generalizations about different political
backgrounds make you no better than the
fools making generalizations about all police
officers. Not all liberals support Meyer, and
not all conservatives think he deserved the
sound beating he received.
Let's stop putting lines between us and
start finding lines that connect us. Krishna
Lunch tastes great, and Meyer deserves every-
thing he gets except fame and the respect he
failed to give to others.
Meyer acted immaturely, inappropriately
After reading Thursday's Letters to the
Editor about "Tasergate," I must say kudos
to the IAlligator for allowing both sides to
be heard, and kudos to many in the student
body for seeing the truth. I would think a
telecommunication senior like Meyer would
understand that it's not about what you say,
but about how you say it.
I might have the secret to the meaning, of
life, but if I stood on the side of the road and
shouted obscenities at people, nobody would
listen. You may have the right to say what you
want, but nobody ever said you could say it
whenever you wanted.
The issue is not about free speech. If Meyer
had asked his question in a calm, intelligent
and straightforward manner, I feel pretty
certain he would have gotten an answer, albeit
maybe not the answer he wanted. But the mo-
ment he lost his temper, he also lost his profes-
sionalism. I think Meyer owes the UF student
body an apology for his callous and immature
Meyer should have obeyed Accent rules
Whatever all this is, it isn't a debate about
'free speech. Accent shutting off Meyer's mi-
crophone violates his free-speech rights no
more than a professor cutting off someone in
Just as a dassroom discussion proceeds
according to a protocol of hand-raising and
turn-waiting set by the teacher, so too does a
speech at an Accent-sponsored event follow a
protocol set by the university: a protocol that
stipulates, among-other things, that question-
ers approach the microphone orderly, wait
their turn to speak and do so calmly and with-
Meyer, as we know, broke every one of
these rules, and for that reason Accent shut off
his microphone and asked him to leave. This
does not violate Meyer's God-given right to
speak, but rather revokes the right that Accent
had, for the moment, given him.
This could be you.

UF sees increased student interest in Arabic classes
By KRISTEN SCHEFF
Alligator Contributing Writer
A national trend is hitting dose
to home as the number of students
interested in learning Arabic has in-
creased nationally, as well as at UF.
"I think Sept. 11 had a great im-
pact on students' decision to join the-
Arabic program," said Esameddin
Alhadi, a visiting lecturer and the
undergraduate adviser for Arabic
According to a USA Today article
published earlier this month, the
number of students studying Arabic
since Sept. 11 has increased.
In fall 2001, 17 UF students took
Beginning Arabic 1, compared with
fall 2007's enrollment of 99 students,
according to information provided
by the department of African and
Asian languages and literatures.
The total number of students in
Arabic classes increased from 32
students in fall 2001 to 207 students
in fall 2007, according to the depart-

The increased demand has
caused a shortage of teachers, both
at UF and nationally.
Despite the scarcity, more sec-
tions of Arabic classes have been
opened, said Rania Habib, a visiting
UF has added mostly beginning-
Before Sept. 11, the department
offered only one or two sections of
Beginning Arabic 1 a semester. It
now offers five sections.
There has also been an increased
interest in learning about Arabic
Habib teaches a culture class,
which is taught in English.
Enrollment was capped at 40 stu-
dents, but she had more asking to
join the class.
The reasons for students' recent
interest are varied.
Alhadi and Habib said many
want to go into the intelligence field,
while some expect to enlist in the
army or be deployed to Iraq.
According to Habib, it is scien-
tifically proven to be among the

One out of every 12 college students has
thought about suicide and planned a way to do
it, according to Active Minds, a student-based
mental-health advocacy program.
The organization, which is dedicated to the
psychological health of college students, has em-

of mental illness and educate people on it so they
can openly talk about issues," said Anitha Joseph,
treasurer of the UF chapter of Active Minds.

Projects when they hear anything about a
mental problem, Joseph said.
"Many people don't know that suicide is the
second leading cause of death for college stu-
dents because it just isn't talked about as much as
car accidents, which-are the primary cause," said
Tiffiny Trentalange, president and co-founder of
the UF chapter.
Trentalange has battled depression since
seventh grade and witnessed mental illnesses in
her family, but she grew up in an environment in
which mental illness was not taboo.
Her parents warned her early on that this was
not the case for all families.
"It was easy for me to hide it in high school,"
she said. "But when I moved to college, there was
no way I could keep it from my roommates, who
would see me when I was upset or taking my

Anca Mirsu-Paun, an employee at the counseling
center at Peabody Hall. Mirsu-Paun works with
the group's adviser and is a trained counselor.
"Students talking to students can be very ben-
eficial," she said. "Ultimately, it goes back to the
idea that you don't have to deal with something
like this yourself."
Through biweekly meetings, workshops,.

organization aims to educate and inform people

FRi6rYAY, SEPTEMBER 21,~2007 IIIALLIGATOR,17'
Gators have lost three straight in state of Mississippi
ADVANCE, from page 19
may miss the game with a shoulder injury,
in which case former Tennessee signal caller
Brent Schaeffer would take the snaps.
Meanwhile, running back Benjarvus
Green-Ellis will present a challenge to the
The senior is averaging more than 123
yards per game.
The Gators will also have to overcome
injuries. Wide receiver Andre Caldwell
(knee) is out, and receiver Riley Cooper and
offensive lineman Maurkice Pouncey are
both battling.ankle injuries.
Caldwell has experienced losing to Ole
Miss. He returned kickoffs in the 2003 loss
in The Swamp.
"It sucks. That's one of those games that
you don't expect to be
much of a competition,
and you don't expect to
lose," he said.
While Caldwell won't
be on the field this week-
end, he will be able to
share the valuable lesson
Caldwell he learned with his team--
"I just tell them to go out and stay fo-
cused on the task at hand, and that's win-
ning the football game,", he said. "It's not
going to be like The Swamp. There aren't
95,000 people out there screaming. The en-
vironment won't be like it is here."
The Mississippi environment hasn't been
too kind to the Gators. Including losses at
Mississippi State, UF has lost its last three
trips to the state.
"It's like, 'What was happening during
those times? Why were they losing to Ole
Miss?'" Caldwell said. "Florida is supposed
to have better athletes and better players
and, coaches to beat teams like that, but
that's just the SEC for you. There's com-
petition all around the board, and they can
sneak up on you any day."
Who: UF at Mississippi
Kickoff: Saturday, 12:30 p.m.
Where: Vaught-Hemingway Stadium
Series: Ole Miss leads 11-9-1
Tickets: Sold out
Notes: The Gators have lost to the
Rebels two straight times and hga
lost three straight games in the
state of Mississippi. UF has yet to
face Ole Miss under Urban Meyer.

instead, because apparently
that's all they needed.
In the words of former
Alligator columnist Louis
Anastasis: What in the name
of Wondy Pierre-Louis is going
A bunch of freshmen and
sophomores aren't supposed to
be playing like juniors and se-
niors, but they are. I was in the
Tennessee pressroom after the
game, and these young play-
ers were responsible for mak-
ing veteran Tennessee players
Ainge is a four-year starter,
and he was completely owned
by a bunch of young guns that
get excited just to see their
number in NCAA'08.
The Volunteers players and
coaches said they wanted to
run the ball more, and Meyer
said he couldn't blame them
with the way UF's defense had
played the first two games.
That first drive must have
been a shocker when the
Volunteers went three-and out.
The Rebels have some play-
makers, but now the Gators'
defense does, too.
I admit the defense will still
lack focus at times nobody's
perfect. However, these young
pups proved something last
Saturday: They can shut down
a legitimate team. Now, there
are actually expectations for
The defensive staff deserves
most of the credit. It has taken
a group of guys who were try-
ing to nab Homecoming dates a
year ago to shutting down SEC
If co-defensive coordina-
tor Charlie Strong and offen-
sive coordinator Dan Mullen
keep this up, they won't be in
Gainesville much longer.
Instead, they'll be head
coaches somewhere else.
Strong has gotten looked over
before, but you can't overlook
what he's done so far.
Looks like that LSU game
just got more interesting. That
game is two weeks away, but
with the way UF's defense is
playing, that's the next game
The inspiration comes from a passed-around
story of Orgeron challenging anybody on his sorry
team to a fight.
"That's not urban legend by the way, because I
know guys that were on the coaching staff," Vernon
said. "In the locker room, he made everybody take
their shirts off and they were screaming. He said if
anybody wanted to take him on, they could take him
Nobody wanted to challenge mighty Orgeron,
but the legend didn't die.
The song is now everywhere.
ESPN.com's Pat Forde, alligatorSports' new fa-
vorite national writer, gave Vernon a "Dashie" award
for song of the year.
ESPN's Rece Davis, an Alabama alum, mentions
the song on air whenever he's forced to play Rebels
highlights, which, needless to say, isn't very often.
When calling Ole Miss-LSU highlights last year,
Davis managed to get nearly the entire chorus of the
song into a 50-second dip.
Bruce Feldman mentioned it in his new book,
"Meat Market," and now, Vernon has hit the big
time and joins such greats as Christian Drejer, Vernon
Maxwell and Willie Williams in the alligatorSports
Hall of Fame.
According to the Memphis Commercial Appeal,
Orgeron first learned of the song from his sons.
"They were upstairs hooting and hollering,"
Orgeron told the paper. "So I asked them, 'What are
y'all doing? I gotta hear this.' I thought it was kind of
funny. I've got no problem with that kind of stuff. It's
all part of football."
Orgeron has not appeared on Vernon's radio
show, despite an interview request this summer,
leading him to believe his life might be in danger.
"I am still worried about getting killed," Vernon
said. "He might just rip off my head."
With that note, onto the picks!
At 21-9 and in first place is Bryan 'Tm working
on growing out my porno moustache" Jones, whose
goal is to be the laziest sports writer on. the planet yet
consume more athletic-association-sponsored food
than the rest of alligatorSports combined.
Tied for first at 21-9, but batting second due to a
significant height disadvantage, is Brian "When I get
mad, I drop 'f-ing' bombs" Steele, who launched the
Facebook group, "Abstinence (and Andrew Meyer)
Rocks My Socks" in tribute to his fallen friend.
Coming up third with a record of 19-11 is
Mike "Mike" McCall, who is busy poking away
GatorCountry and GatorBait subscribers and one-
toothed Tennessee females with pointy sticks after
his recent appearance on "ESPN First Take." And in
case you didn't know, Tennessee Daily Beacon writer
Hunter Pavlik is Mike's bitch.
In fourth at 18-12'is resident bitch artist Nick "I'm
being overworked, which is significantly cutting
down on my fantasy college hockey time" Zaccardi,
who is about to be caught up in a Danny Almonte-
like scandal, as his boyish looks have earned him
a starring role on "Are You Smarter than a Fifth-

Gators add nation's No. 1 safety to recruiting class
By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
UF's defensive backfield is getting deeper
ay the day.
Will Hill, the consensus No. 1 safety re-
cruit in the country, verbally committed to
JF on Thursday night.
~He chose the Gators over USC.
His announcement on ESPNU marked
:he Gators' third defensive back commit-
ment in the last eight days.
"Right now I can tell you I'm going to be
a Gator," said Hill, who made the'most of
his TV appearance by breaking into a Gator
chomp, fitting a blue Gators hat and putting
on an orange tie.
He said UF coach Urban Meyer and of-
fensive line coach Steve Addazio visited his
school and he could "feel the energy" they
brought with them from Gainesville.
Hill is a 6-foot-3, 203-pound, five-star
prospect out of Jersey City's (N.J.) St. Peter's
Prep and ESPN's No. 2 overall player for the
Class of 2008.
"The kid's a great athlete with great
speed, great size and can play a variety of
different positions," Scout.com national
recruiting analyst Jamie Newberg said. "I
would project him as a free safety at UF. He
has great range, runs like a corner, hits like
Hill joins an already talented class of
defensive backs with almost five months left
before National Signing Day.
Orlando's Boone High cornerback
Jeremy Brown settled on UF after Saturday's
win over Tennessee.
Hill said he and Brown became good
friends on their Gainesville visits last week-
"That kind of sealed the deal," Hill said
of Brown committing.
Pahokee corner Janoris Jenkins chose UF
on his ESPNU appearance Sept. 13.
The nation's No. 2 safety, Dee Finley,
committed to the Gators earlier this year.
Hill also plays quarterback for St. Peter's
Prep, but he wants to stick to defense next
"They recruited me for safety, that's one
thing I like to do," Hill said. "That's my pas-
sion right there to play defense. I'm the type
of person that will come up and hit you."
"Right now I can tell you I'm going
to be a Gator."
No. 1 safety recruit
Hill, Finley. and current UF freshman
Major Wright will likely compete for two
starting spots at safety in 2008.
Seniors Tony Joiner and Kyle Jackson
started the first three games this season,
though Wright is pushing Jackson at free
Hill already knows about Wright.
"Last year, me and my father were on
Rivals, and I saw this guy Major Wright,"
Hill said. "I told my father right off the bat,
'I want to play with him.' He committed to
Florida and, well, the secondary looked like
it was loading up. I'm glad to be taken into
Hill ended any suspense surrounding his
decision when he canceled a visit to USC
earlier this week.
In what has become a national recruit-
ing battleground, UF has grabbed from the
Trojans an uncommitted prospect in Hill, a
USC oral commitment in class of 2007 offen-
sive lineman James Wilson, and a transfer in
running back Emmanuel Moody.
UF now has eight commitments, includ-
ing two five-star players in Hill and Finley.
Scout and Rivals slot the Gators' 2008
class No. 25 and No. 27 respectively, but
those rankings are sure to change with Hill's
UF receives game-day t oost from 'Vitamin Addazio'
* THE COACH SPEAKS BE-
FORE EVERY GAME.
By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer -
When UF offensive line coach
Steve Addazio is speaking, it's best
to stand a few feet away.
"He's always got spit flying,"
senior center Drew Miller said. "He
brings all the energy and juice for
us, trying to get us motivated."
,Tat's what the UF football team
cas the "Vitamin Addazio," a rous-
ing pep talk the morning before ev-
ery game in the team's hotel.
There are differing opinions
on whether Addazio "scares" the
players, but there is one thing the
team is unanimous on: Addazio is
He mainly deals with the offen-
sive line, but the whole team gets to
witness the saliva-spewing speech
during breakfast every Saturday.
"I sit kind of away from him,
because that dude's crazy," sopho-
more Jarred Fayson said. "He might
hit you any day, he might push
you, he might throw a Gatorade
or something. You just got to try to
stay out of the way from him. It's a
good speech that'll get you going."
With the Gators at 3-0 and
coming off a 59-20 thrashing of
Tennessee, Vitamin Addazio will
certainly remain part of a complete
breakfast for UF.
But nobody ever said that break-
fast was exactly wholesome.
"It's just about every other
word," Faysonfsaid when asked if
there's profanity in the pep talks.
"I can't, repeat
none of that. He's
around the lock-
er room scream-
ing. When we
mmk get ready for
A= 'practice, he's just
Addazio walking through
Whether it's Saturday morning
before a game or every day in the
film room, there's little chance of
escaping the Vitamin if you make
"If I mess up in practice on kick-
off return, it could almost mess up
your whole practice," cornerback
Joe Haden said. "Tomorrow when
you go to your kickoff meeting -
oh my God he'll tear you apart.
He scares me the most."
While the rest of the team gets
some time off from Addazio, there's
little the offensive linemen can do
to avoid him.
Fayson said he and the receivers
joke that they're glad they don't
have to face Addazio on a consis-
"He has his days," freshman
offensive lineman Mike Pouncey
said. "If we mess up, he's going
to get after us. We know that. (I
get spit on) all the time. When he

Last fall, Vernon thought up
some lyrics, picked up his guitar and
strummed the tune now known to
many as either the "Coach 0 song" or
"Colonel Reb Is Crying."
The song pays homage to the un-
mistakable and uninterpretable south-
ern twang Orgeron possesses.
Vernon said the hit has received
about 750,000 views in the last year.
"Everybody had been goofing on
his voice," Vernon said. "The way he
talked, it was so gruff."
Vernon hosts an afternoon sports
talk radio show in Memphis, Tenn.
- the closest location of intelligent life
from Mississippi's campus in Oxford,
about 90 minutes away.

charge of an entire program?"

UF seeks revenge against Mississippi
By MIKE MCCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
Saturday's game between No. 3 UF and
Ole Miss will be a chance for the Gators to
avenge the Rebels' recent dominance over
t~gp=~ -S^:. U^saBs,'*
Yes, you read that right.
It may sound crazy, but the Gators (3-0,
1-0 Southeastern Conference) have lost to
Mississippi the last two times the schools
have met, and the Rebels lead the all-time
Alligator File Photo
UF defensive tackle Clint McMillan (front) is one of the few current players who experi-
enced the Gators' last loss to Mississippi in 2003.
Ole Miss defeated the Gators by three
points in 2002 and 2003, and both timesthe
Gators were the only ranked team.
"It's definitely not good," said UF de-
fensive lineman .Clint McMillan, who was
on the team in 2003. "Mississippi always
has great football players, and that year
they had (current NFL quarterback) Eli
Manning, enough said. We've had a lot of
trouble in Mississippi, so the team is look-
ing to get over that this year."
"They're in the SEC. That's all you
need to say. Any team in the SEC
can win, so there's no such thing
as making them seem like a good
team they are a good team."
UF defensive lineman
Saturday's game may seem like a sure
thing the Gators boast one of the nation's
best offenses while Ole Miss (1-2, 0-1 SEC)
ranks No. 104 in total defense but that's
just what fans thought in 2002 before No.
6 UF fell to the unranked Rebels 17-14 in
"It's definitely not (an easy game),"
McMillan said. "They're in the SEC. That's
all you need to say. Any team in the SEC
can win, so there's no such thing as making
them seem like a good team they are a
good team." -:
Mississippi may be a good team, but
they haven't played, like it so far. After a
two-point win against Memphis to start
the season, they lost games to Missouri and
Vanderbilt, allowing more than 30 points in

"First game my legs were

If the defense plays even
