In the first half of 2006, nearly 35 percent

"My concern is that I've al-

have health insurance," Rodriguez said. "But

self because it's difficult to find a job that offers

UF students featured in Playboy magazine
By KIM WILMATH
In the name of school spirit,
some students would give the
shirts off their backs.
Seven UF women took off more
than that in a 10-page pictorial of
the "Girls of the SEC" October is-
sue of Playboy.
The issue, which features
"WILD SOUTHERN COLLEGE
GIRLS," according to the cover, hit
newsstands Sept. 7.
Jessica Macbeth, a pre-med
UF psychology senior who posed
with the other Gator gals in an
orange, blow-up kiddie pool, said
the number of fan e-mails she's
received pushes triple digits.
Macbeth, a tall brunette who
wore a white pullover sweater
during an interview Friday, said
she tried out for the magazine in
April because her friends dared
But the joke was on them, she
Two days before the photo
shoot April 13, she got the news
that she was in.
So far, she said she's had posi-
tive responses from friends and
family. She said she'd always be
proud of her participation in the
"It's a fun thing I did when I
was young and hot," she said with
a wide smile.
Still, Macbeth said frequent
recognition by strangers is hard to
get used to.
Crowds of people at the gym
have approached her, and each
day she can count on more than 20
Facebook friend requests and mes-
sages, she said.
On Sept. 10, all seven girls par-
ticipated in a magazine signing at

of people came for autographs,
"It was weird when people had
me signing for their dad or a little
brother," Macbeth said.
She added that she signed one
copy of the magazine for her own
"He knows all about it," she
She said her grandma saw it as
well. And Macbeth's boyfriend.
And his parents.
"It's not like it's Hustler."
But Macbeth, who wore a bikini
in the photo, said it doesn't matter
"It's how they'd see me at the
beach," she said.
Allison Creamer, a UF sopho-
more and self-proclaimed baby of
the group, said her boyfriend, Pat
Carroll, encouraged her to audi-
When Carroll saw his sweet-
heart's bare breasts in print,
Creamer said he couldn't have
She said Carroll's fraternity
brothers were also excited.
"He just told them, 'Whatever.
She's beautiful,'" Creamer said.
Playboy's college pictorials
have been some of the most popu-
lar features in the magazine over
the past 31 years, according to a
press release from Playboy.
The last time Playboy featured
"Girls of the SEC" was in October
Monique Omura, a UF adver-
tising senior who posed topless,
said she has always loved Playboy.
However, she said she never ex-
pected to be a part of it.
"You don't look at it as por-
nography," Omura said, flipping
through glossy pages of busty,
naked women. "You look at it as
these beautiful girls."
Between giggles, the freckled,
dark-haired Omura explained
she's proud to have posed but
hasn't mustered the courage to
break the news to her mom and
"I don't think my parents really
need to see me naked," she said.
Looking around the room at
four of the other Playboy pinups
from UF, she said the best part of
the experience was bonding with
her new buddies.
"You'll always have the maga-
zine, but now we also all have
these great friends," Omura said.
Natasha Combs, a UF sopho-
more, said she initially had con-
cerns that participation in the
pictorial could hinder her future
career in telecommunication.
She said she ultimately de-
cided if someone doesn't hire her
because she posed, she wouldn't
want to work for that company
Combs has a tattoo on her hip
that says "Live Free," and she said
she loves to predict personality
traits based on astrological signs.
She was the only girl from UF
with an individual shot, donning
nothing but a green net.
"I was comfortable," she said of
the shoot. "I was surprised."
However, Combs said she
was disappointed when she saw
the published product because
her name below the picture was
switched with another woman's.
"It was horrible," she said with
her eyes wide. "You want to take
credit for your own picture. That's
a really big deal."
Combs said she denied her par-
ticipation in the magazine to her
parents for as long as she could.
But when a check from Playboy

senior, said she wasn't the least bit

Crist in Gainesville for NAACP
By DEVIN CULCLASURE
At the Florida Conference of the NAACP on
Saturday, Gov. Charlie Crist praised -the orga-
nization as a leader in fairness and described
several civil rights leaders who inspired him.
Crist was the keynote speaker at the closing
banquet of the NAACP's convention, where he
addressed a crowd of a little more than 500 at
Gainesville's Mount Carmel Baptist Church.
He was the first Florida governor in 64 years
to speak at the conference.
It took Crist about 10 minutes to enter
the church because he was shaking so many
During his speech, he described the impact
several civil rights leaders had on his life, in-
cluding Verle Davis, his high school principal
and .the first black principal at St. Petersburg
"Because of his influence, I am who I am
today," Crist said, referring to Davis as a "great

Crist also mentioned his father, a member of
the Pinellas County School Board who served
as team doctor for St. Petersburg's Gibbs High
School all-black football team in the 1960s.
His father insisted on bringing him to the
games, where Crist said he sat in on locker-
room pep talks and prayed with the team be-
fore the game.
"It taught me a lot at a very early age that
we're all the same," Crist said. "We all have the

UF Takes It Off
Playboy spread could
inspire UF celebs
When we heard seven UF women are featured in this
month's issue of Playboy, we immediately ran to
the nearest gas station to buy a copy for our office.
The issue contains a spread on the "Girls of the SEC." The
students were photographed back in April after on-campus
auditions. Unfortunately, they didn't get to meet Hugh
Hefner, but they said they could visit the Playboy Mansion
in Los Angeles any time they want.
What an honor.
The magazine got us thinking what kind of Playboy
and Playgirl spreads might we like to see of UF figures? You
know, like those "READ" posters in the libraries but na-
ked. Weak stomachs beware; we don't think these would all
be pretty pictures...
The most obvious photograph would be UF President
Bernie Machen posing on his Harley, wearing nothing but
a leather jacket. Of course, the hog would be cleverly posi-
tioned to keep this photo PG-13. A fan gently blowing his
hair would make it look like he was riding into the sunset.
Student Body President Ryan Moseley is also a given
for the shoot. If his hair looks that good, well, we can only
imagine about the rest of his body. This picture would fea-
ture Moseley in his third-floor office in the Reitz Union. It's
cliche, we know, but is there anything better than the wear-
ing-nothing-but-a-tie, feet-on-the-desk pose? We don't think
so. Maybe we'll even throw in a sexy student senator, too.
Vice President of Student Affairs Patricia Telles-Irvin
would be in this spread, too. She started the Gator Common
Reading Program this year, which encouraged all first-year
students to read a book before coming to UF to give them all
a common experience.
So of course, Telles-Irvin would appear among stacks
of books in Library West. She would wear a pencil behind
one ear and some glasses to give off a sexy-librarian look.
Telles-Irvin said she hopes the reading program will become
a tradition. If it had promotional posters like this, it would
be a sure thing.
We're willing to bet Andrew Meyer wouldn't mind-strip-
ping down to his skivvies, as long as he was being photo-
graphed. UF's newest celebrity could pose with a few sexy
women holding Tasers. As long as they don't shock him,
everything should be OK.
Albert and Alberta, our beloved mascots, wouldn't want
to miss out on the fun. Besides, who hasn't wondered about
what's underneath his orange sweater and her pleated dress?
We're visualizing a romantic scene shot in front of Lake Alice.
But this photo wouldn't be too graphic after all, Albert and
Alberta are just really good friends.
They may not be recognizable to every student, but most
graduate students could use a little extra dough. We could
easily round up a handful of starving teaching assistants, as
long as they were promised a free meal of anything other
than Ramen noodles or beans.
And no spread would be complete without a few Men
of the SEC. Tim Tebow, Andre Caldwell and Percy Harvin
would pose in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium with strategically
placed footballs and Gators helmets, wearing just their mesh
As Jessica Macbeth, one of the women who really was
photographed, put it isn't it great to be "young and hot"?

Police work hard to keep everyone safe
When I saw the aftermath of the police
Taser incident, I thought to myself, something
is not right. Why has this occurrence become
such a huge cause to fight for? Why is this
student getting all this attention?
UF students are upset because our freedom
of speech seems to have been attacked. And
now, the police are our enemies.
I do not remember as much fire being
stirred in the hearts of students when a pohce
officer was killed in the spring by a drunken
Maybe the cops were wrong when they
Tasered that young man, but does that give
us leave to forget the sacrifices police make to
ensure our safety?
Taser incident seen from both angles
It is true I am a retired University Police
Department officer. It is also true I am a Gator
graduate (class of 1975), and I can see things
from a student perspective as well as from a
law enforcement perspective.
I enjoy a joke as much as anyone, but my
take on the Ta.er incident Ls that The Andrew
Meyer has a major credibityv problem -not
to mention he's a bad actor
It I %ere more computer-sa\-vv.
I'd consider starting a Web site called
Gaines ulle resident
U U U
Crude language didn't warrant Tasering
"Blowjob." That's the obscenity Andrew
Meyer uttered that resulted in him getting
Tasered at a free-speech event.
The First Amendment is about the right to
say things those in power don't want to hear.
In Gainesville, it is about the right of a church
to administer to the religious needs of a con-
gregation that is largely homeless. At UF, it is
about the right ot an mdwidual to say some-
thing unpopular at an Accent event.
Sen John Kerry as never in any danger,
and he seemed willing to answer Meyer's ti-
rade Atter being in politics as long as he has,
kerry \\as totally capable of dealing with the
situation. Angry citizens go with the job. If
being rude. arrogant and self-centered is now
a crime, I know a number of citizens in this
town who should also be in jail probably
Ironically, at the same time Meyer's ar-
rest took place, UF was sponsoring a First
Amendment seminar. While discussing
whether school-board budgets should be on
the Web, the real freedom of speech issue was
playing out on another part of the campus.
In an editorial, The Gainesville Sun pointed
out that instead of having one law enforcement
agency investigating another, there should be
open discourse about what happened and
what the rules of engagement should be.
Surely there are several steps between telling
someone they are acting rude, wrestling that
person to the ground and Tasering him.
In the interest of free speech: "Blowjob,
Police officers' actions could inspire Taser free-for-all
The outrage over Monday's
incident at the Sen. John
Kerry event has gone as
far as inspiring protests on cam-
pus. Students are livid about the
actions of the University Police
After my first look at this issue,
I was shocked, too. Clearly the of-
ficers had overreacted. However,
after giving the situation some
thought, I began to reconsider my
I realized .the implications of
the event. Through its actions,
UPD has given me permission to
Taser anyone who asks too many
questions. I now have the power
to punish all those who annoy
me. I should probably get a car
charger for my Taser gun because
that thing will get a lot of use. I
can think of six people I would've
Tasered just this morning. UPD has
liberated me from society's expec-
tations that I should tolerate the
Tosha Sketo intolerable
Speaking Out masses.
I am free.
Never again will I make mind-
less conversation with mindless
acquaintances. Attempts at chit-
chat will merit a Tasering. No lon-
ger will I put up with endless ques-
tions from my professors. Exams
will obviously lead to group
Taserings. Certainly the tasks and
reprimands that my supervisors
burden me with will earn them
Taserings. Yes, I will utilize my
Taser frequently, and according to
. Of course, I must acknowledge
that if I have the power to freely
yield my Taser, so does everyone
else. This could pose a problem.
People are annoyed by an endless
array of things. Some people don't
like it when I talk on my phone in
public. I'm sure I'll get Tasered at
least once a day for that.
I imagine that being Tasered is
quite annoying, and I will have to
Taser back. I don't suppose it will
take long for chaos to erupt at UF.
There will be mass Taserings all
Maybe there was a purpose be-
hind that old notion of tolerance.
Regardless, I will follow the lead
of UPD. By the way, officers: I find

Family struggles with aftermath of student's death
By KIM WILMATH
Even before his adult teeth grew in,
Andrew Enriquez smiled.
His cousin, Danny Enriquez, a law stu-
dent at Georgetown University, said Andy
wasn't embarrassed by how long it took for
those teeth to grow in. Grinning always came
But now, his smile is forever frozen in pic-
tures and memories.
Andy Enriquez, a 20-year-old UF his-
tory junior who hoped to become a lawyer,
died Sept. 14 in a single-vehicle accident on
Southwest 13th Street.
"I miss him so much," said his mother, Sue
Enriquez, between bursts of sobs. "I have a
pain in my heart like there's something miss-
From grieving to giving
The Enriquez family has set up a memo-
rial fund with the UF Foundation in Andrew
Enriquez's name to raise money for a UF
"I hope his death leads to some student be-
ing able to fulfill their dreams," Sue said. "So
he didn't die totally in vain."
So far, the family has not requested a me-
morial service from UE
Enriquez was the middle child. His sister,
Amanda, is 21, and his brother, Timothy, is 15.
Family was everything to Enriquez, Sue
said. His siblings and cousins were his best-
friends and his support system.
Andy's friends were his family, too.
About 2,000 people were at Enriquez's
funeral Sept. 17 in Key Biscayne, Danny
For love and history
Enriquez loved spending time on the fami-
ly's boat, said his father, Tim Enriquez.
"He would fish all day if you let him," he
He loved history, weightlifting and run-
ning. Tim said Enriquez worked hard to be-
come a Gator.
He spent one year at Tallahassee
Community College and one year at SFCC
before getting accepted at UF.E
He liked music mostly "that rap stuff,"
The 5-foot-11-inch Enriquez was a ladies'
man, his dad said.
"He had really pretty girls around here," he
said with a laugh.
"So many best friends"
In everything he did, Enriquez celebrated
his life, Tim said. He loved everyone he met.
Tim said he doesn't think Andy's death has
fully hit him yet, but Sue is struggling in the

UF student Andrew Enriquez died Sept. 14 in a single-vehicle accident on Southwest
"All his friends would say to me, I was his
best friend,'" Sue said. "I never knew anybody
in the world who had so many best friends. I
feel like he was my best friend, too."
Sue said she had already started saving her
pennies for Enriquez's law school tuition.
"He and his cousins used to joke about
having a firm called Enriquez, Enriquez,
Enriquez and Enriquez," she said.
In a few weeks, Sue said she and Tim will
go to Gainesville to dean out Enriquez's apart-
UF President Bernie Machen said Andrew
Enriquez died with an armband from a bar on
his wrist and a forged ID in his pocket.
Machen said cases like this encourage him
to continue his fight against underage drink-
Tim said he hasn't seen Andy's toxicology
reports, which aren't yet available. He's not
sure he wants to see the reports.
One thing he does know is students need
to take care of themselves. Whether they have
been drinking or are just tired, they should be
careful behind the wheel, he said.
"Your body can only handle so much," he
said. "Studying is very hard, and students are
under a lot of pressure. You can drink, but, my
gosh, you've got to get your rest."
Twenty full years
Enriquez's cousin, Danny Enriquez, said
remembering Andy's good qualities brings
comfort, but it doesn't bring him back.
Still, despite tragedy, Danny said he thinks
Enriquez led a fulfilling life.
"It's the worst thing that's ever happened
to any of us, but the way he lived his Jife
brought a lot of peace," he said.
"If he had known he'd only have 20 years

WALL, from Page 1
UF nutritional sciences junior Akeelah
Ammons said it was great to see so many
people come together to repaint.
"With freedom of speech comes respon-
sibility to the public," Ammons said. "It's an
unwritten rule to be respectful.".
Freshman Jocelyn Velazquez was one of the
volunteers who touched up the U.S. flag of a
memorial for soldiers.
As red, white and blue paint was slathered
onto the surface, the blue graffiti vanished, and
a flag reappeared.
"There are so many other
Local ways you can express yourself,"
News Velazquez said.
Keep Alachua County
Beautiful is responsible for keep-
ing up the appearance of the wall.
Mark Cline takes care of graffiti problems
for Keep Alachua County Beautiful.
He takes pictures of graffiti before he paints
over it. The main concern on the 34th Street
Wall is profanity.
"It's a shame I have to come down here and
babysit college students," he said.
Kharyssa Rhodes, program director for
Keep Alachua County Beautiful, said while
some parts of the wall change, it is an unspoken
rule that the memorials remain untouched.
Rhodes might try to instill a city permitting
system for wall painting. The group may also
ask the city to install video cameras to monitor
wall activity, she said.
"DONT TASE ME BRO" was also marked
three times over Gainesville Police Department
Lt. Corey Dahlem's memorial.
Dahlem was hit by a drunken driver after
the spring basketball championship.
Katie Dahlem, his daughter, helped volun-
teers paint on Saturday. Her father's memorial
was touched up on Thursday.
Katie, an SFCC criminal justice sophomore,
said it hurt when she found out someone van-
dalized her father's memorial. She said the
memorial serves an important purpose.
"Mike having it," Katie said. "I like people
to drive by, remembering it."
INSURANCE, from Page 1
The cutting-edge technology that has
produced life-saving medical advances
and top-of-the-line pharmaceuticals has
contributed to soaring health care costs.
And new graduates are among the work-
ers shouldering the costs as they enter the
Employers, hard-pressed to cover
rising health insurance premiums, have
shifted the burden of the cost to their
employees, said W. Bruce Vogel, a health-
care economist and associate professor
in the department of epidemiology and
health policy research at UF's College of
Medicine. Some companies, especially
smaller ones, are dropping coverage all
Many young people, who typically
have smaller salaries, are unable to afford
their portion of the cost and go without,
Vogel said. Those who aren't offered em-
ployee-based coverage are left to shop for
policies in the pricey individual market,
Opting out of insurance
The rising cost of health insurance
may not be the only reason why so many
young Americans are uninsured.
Many choose to forego health insur-
ance benefits in favor of higher wages
because they are younger and thought to
be healthier, Vogel said.
"Going without health insurance at a
young age is running a risk, but it's not
the same risk as if you were 45," he said.
Wayne Wallace, director of the Career
Resource Center at UF, said the students
he sees are typically more concerned with
salary, location and job satisfaction than
whether they are offered health benefits.
He said young people would often rather
spend the money on other things.
"It's just not something they think
about at age 23," Wallace said. "They
don't think about how important it is un-
til something happens, and it's too late."
Going without health insurance post-
graduation may be nothing new for some
Roughly 20 percent of UF students re-
ported not having health insurance when
a survey was taken a few years ago, said
Dr. Phillip Barkley, director of the Student
Health Care Center.
Barkley said that number might
have decreased since UF introduced
GatoprGradCare, a health plan that covers
graduate students on teaching, research
and graduate assistantships.
The plan was started in January, ac-
cording to the UF Human Resource
Services Web site.
"Going without health insur-
ance at a young age is running
a risk, but it's not the same
risk as if you were 45."
W. Bruce Vogel
It is common for younger students to
be on their parents' plans, but as they get
older they are more likely to be dropped,
UF students are not required to carry
health insurance, though it is available for
purchase through Scarborough Company
Opting out of health insurance may
pose major risks for young Americans.
Young adulthood is a high-risk pe-
riod for unintended pregnancy, sexually
transmitted infections, substance abuse
and injuries, according to a report from
the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Additionally, an increasing number of
young adults have chronic medical condi-
tions, the report states.
"A catastrophic medical event can be
financially devastating for young people
without insurance," Barkley said.
Plans still available
There might be light at the end of the
tunnel for uninsured students and recent
Low-risk policies called catastrophic
health insurance plans are available for
people in good health.
These plans might not cover doctors'
visits but provide coverage in the event of
a major medical procedure.
A healthy young person could find
a plan for as low as $60 to $80 dollars a
month with a $1,000 to $2,000 deduct-
ible, said Howard Shapiro, executive vice
president of Brown & Brown Insurance in
Shapiro also said short-term major
medical plans are available at a low cost
for young people who are between jobs.
Shapiro said lack of insurance is more
often due to irresponsibility in young
people rather than unavailability.
"If something happens and you are
uninsured, you will pay it off for the rest
of your life," Shapiro said.

Free safety position
Sa problem for Gators
Alex Kolyer Alligator
UF safety Major Wright tackles Mississippi's Shay Hodge in the second quarter of the Gators' 30-24 win
against the Rebels on Saturday in Oxford, Miss.
By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
Four weeks into the season, the
UF football team is still working
out its starting free safety.
Senior Kyle Jackson who has
struggled for much of the season
and has been pulled from games
due to poor play is still the start-
er but continues to lose ground to
freshman Major Wright.
Whoever is back there, the job
comes with lots of pressure.
"That's the quarterback (of the
defense), regardless of if it's fair or
not," UF coach Urban Meyer said
during his Sunday teleconference.
"If you miss a tackle and you're a
defensive end, the tackle or some-
one else helps you. That's part of
the position you play. You miss a
tackle in the backed, and that's a
home run. Our free safety position
has to be much better than it is
After watching Reggie Nelson
patrol the backfield last season and
lay punishing hits, fans want to see
Wright, who is also known for his
hitting ability. But Meyer won't in-
crease the freshman's role until the
coach feels he's ready.
"There's a lot of people that
say throw them out there and see
how they do," Meyer said. "That's
absolutely not the case. It's simply
week-to-week. See how Major
and Kyle played and compare the

Running Tebow wild poses risks
On Saturday, Tun Tebow picked up
the Gators, placed them on his back
and carried them to a win against
Mississippi six yards at a time.
With the clock winding down and UF
clinging to a slim lead over the Rebels, Tebow
rushed 11 times on the final two drives for five
Tebow's runs up the middle led to a field
goal, and he single-handedly ran off the last
three minutes with straight-ahead plows.
He finished with 166 yards on 27 carries,
and both of those numbers set UF single-game
records for a quarterback.
I've watched Tebow break plenty of records
at Nease High, and that's one that I'd rather
not see. The sophomore accounted for more
than half of the Gators' total rushing attempts,
and he is their leading runner this season. -
Urban Meyer and the rest of the coaching
staff have spent the better part of the last two
years trying to persuade Tebow to abandon
his reckless running style to prevent an injury,
but what they are doing with him now may be
even worse than letting him run over a line-
backer on his way out of bounds.
His upper body is much better equipped to
handle contact than his legs are.
Sending Tebow through the middle of op-
posing defenses on more than a quarter of the
team's offensive plays is a dangerous gamble,
Like I See It
and sooner or later UF's
luck will run out.
Every time he goes
spinning through a
jumble of linebackers
and defensive linemen,
Tebow's knees and
ankles are very sus-
ceptible to injury, and
believe it or not, he isn't
Ponte Vedra Beach
Nease High's coaching staff learned that
quickly, as Tebow missed time in two seasons
due to injury.
During his senior year, Tebow suffered an
ankle sprain after a quarterback sneak and
missed three starts, playing sparingly off the
bench in the third. He barely made it back in
time to guide the Panthers to a state champi-
onship, something they couldn't have accom-
plished without him.
In college, Tebow means even more to his
team than he did in high school. If there is one
part of the Gators' offense that can't be lost,
even for one game, it's Tebow.
Meyer knows this, and he acknowledged
the danger of the play-calling after the game,
saying that a quarterback should never have

Rebels shred secondary
By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Staff Writer
OXFORD, Miss. UF's inconsis-
tency on defense was glaring Saturday
against Mississippi, and Coach Urban
Meyer has become concerned.
The third-year coach said the unit's
deficiencies start with the pass rush,
and correcting the issue has become
an urgent priority.
"That's going to cost us a game,"
Meyer said. "I never see their quarter-
back get hit, and that's a problem."
At times, the UF defense dominat-
ed the Rebels the way it expected to.
But with the pass rush disappear-
ing for much of the game, Mississippi
took advantage of an inexperienced

got exposed today," Meyer said.

6 Gators (11-0, 4-0 SEC) went on
their deciding streak to finish off a
weekend road sweep.
In a match filled with highly
contested calls, UF coach Mary

LSU double hits during the match-
"You're not supposed to get
breaks on the road," Wise said.
"I think we did get two big-time

Sunday's match featured both
SEC division leaders, and the
Gators looked to both old and new
to carry them.
Senior middle blocker Kisya
Killingsworth had a big day, total-
ing 14 kills and four blocks with a
team-high .385 hitting efficiency.
Killingsworth scored her
1,000th career kill, and it couldn't
have come at a better time. LSU
had taken a 20-19 lead late in game
one, when Killingsworth reached
the millennium mark, evening the
score. UF would not trail again en
route to taking the first game.
Wise made a key lineup change
late in game one, substituting
freshman Callie Rivers, daughter
of Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers,
for a struggling Janine Williams.
Williams had no kills and one er-
ror on four attacks and would not
re-enter the match.
Rivers made an immediate
impact, scoring a kill and a block
by the end of the game and would

of the match,

foreshadowed in Before Sunday,
whive Rivers played in had seen
action in only 15 of 34 games, most
of which was frecor short periods.
"Callie's a competitor," Wise
said. "You could just look in her
eyes, before this match she
wanted to plaght time. She's taken the
bestuse of this opportunf her eity."
Wise's decision may have been
foreshadowed in Friday's match
against Mississippi (12-3, 2-2 SEC)

games and recorded four kills in
the victory.," Wise said. "The
UF swept Mississippi for the
17th-straight time. Hampton led

the gate, tallying five of her eight

UF nets ties against unranked foes
By DANNY KLEIN
At this point, the UF soccer team's prob-
lems are becoming trends, and games that
should be wins are turning into missed op-
On Sunday, the No. 12 Gators (4-2-2)
finished the weekend the same way they
started it, with a tie to an unranked team.
Heading to Nebraska in a rare home-
away split weekend, the Gators and the
Cornhuskers (3-2-3) took 110 minutes to
put a 1-1 tie in the books.
UF started the weekend with a draw
against Florida Atlantic in a scoreless
match Friday night.
The Gators and Owls agreed to call the
game following regulation due to poor
The double-overtime tie in Lincoln,
Neb., came in front of a crowd of 465 and
represented the Gators' first overtime con-
test of the season.
The Cornhuskers applied pressure early
on, out-shooting the Gators 10-3 in the
opening 45 minutes.
"It was just a misplayed goal."
UF soccer coach
The second half began on a sour note for
the Gators, when a free kick from 35 yards
out by Nebraska's Selenia lacchelli slipped
through UF goalkeeper Katie Fraine's
hands for a goal.
"It was just a misplayed goal," UF coach
Becky Burleigh said. "It's not like we were
doing anything poor on defense, it was
only a minute into the half. But I don't
think anyone put their head down. We
just recovered and began to put all sorts of
pressure on them."
The embarrassing score served as a
turning point for the Gators.
In the 65th minute, forward Stacy
Bishop connected on a free kick from de-
fender Lauren Hyde, heading the ball into
the back of the net.
The rest of the game featured a slew
of near misses for the Gators, including a
heartbreaker by forward Ashley Harris in
the 96th minute, when she was able to beat
the goalie before Nebraska's Carly Peetz
slid to knock the ball away only inches
before it crossed the plane.
The Gators received a final chance in the
107th minute, when Bishop's fifth shot of
the game sailed over the net.
"Today was a much different feel than
Friday," Burleigh said. "Even though I
know the result was the same. I felt a lot
better about the way we played today than
Friday. I felt like we outplayed Nebraska,
the result just wasn't there."

as many carries in a game as Tebow had.
The problem is that Meyer hasn't been
given a reason not to run Tebow. He almost
never fails to pick up the necessary yards,
and he seems to be the most reliable option.
What baffles me is the reluctance to
hand the ball to Kestahn Moore, the starting
running back whom Meyer has repeatedly
called a trustworthy player.
Moore struggled to hold on to the ball
last year, prompting me to name him

true freshman Major Wright.

ibly upset when asked about
Jackson's confidence following
"I think his
confidence is still
the same," Joiner
Foot all said. "There's
not really any-
thing I see for
his confidence to be lower. I'm
going to talk to him again on the
bus, and that's about it."
But while the Gators were
Kestahn "nobody fumbles" Moore.
He has since shed that moniker and
become a consistent performer, averaging
more than five yards per carry with no
fumbles on 53 attempts.
However, with the game in jeopardy,
Tebow seizes control of the running duties.
Whether this is because Meyer doesn't
actually trust his backs or because Tebow
insists upon it, it carries a risk that could end
UF's title hopes in a snap, crackle or pop.
This isn't to say that they should play
scared. The moment they begin calling
plays just to avoid an injury, the offense will
become less productive.

attack, they contained All-
Southeastern Conference run-
ning back Benjarvus Green-Ellis
and the run game.
They allowed 80 yards and
no touchdowns on the ground,
holding Green-Ellis to just 37
"Our linebackers and our D-
lineman are playing phenome-
nal (against the run) right now,"
Joiner said. "When everything
is put together, we are going to
have a great defense."
Meyer and his staff can and will do
whatever they have to in order to win,
and with games against top Southeastern
Conference foes looming, they'll want the
ball in safe hands.
No matter what, every time Tebow goes
to the ground, the collective breath of Gator
Nation will be held.
Perhaps the day will never come when
Tebow hobbles off the field to polite ap-
plause, but I think Meyer and his fans
would agree that they have to minimize the
chances of that happening.
The easiest way to do this is to let the
running backs do some running.

Meyer of the cov-

"When your de-

playing well, it's

it's somewhat tied, but you can't

SHARE THE LOVE: Standout sopho-

Saturday with 121 receiving yards

several runs called back due to
penalties but Meyer knows he

"[Jarred] Fayson was wide open
and we didn'f get him the ball,"
Meyer said. "[Cornelius Ingram]
is very involved in our offense and
had a couple catches. I think we
went a little conservative."
GAME TIME: UF announced that
this weekend's home game against
Auburn will start at 8 p.m. and be
televised on ESPN.
ETC: Meyer said running back
Kestahn Moore's shoulder was
a little "dinged up," but that he
would be fine for this weekend...
He also said wideout Riley Cooper
should return, and he also hopes to
have Andre Caldwell back.
