Board of Governors votes to increase tuition

Board of Governors meeting in Tallahassee on Thursday afternoon.


* THE HIKE MAY GO INTO
EFFECT IN JANUARY.

By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

TALLAHASSEE. The
Florida Board of Governors voted
at a meeting Thursday to increase
tuition at the state's 11 public uni-
versities by 5 percent this spring.
The increase may take effect
in January, despite Gov. Charlie
Crist's veto in May of a 5 percent
hike proposed by the Florida
Legislature.
In the past, the board has al-
lowed the Legislature to determine
undergraduate tuition. However,
the board continually asserted that
it had the constitutional power to
set those rates, said Bill Edmonds,
the board's spokesman.
Since the Legislature unsuc-
cessfully tried to raise tuition
earlier this year, the board, which
is the State University System's
highest governing body, decided
to set tuition for the first time,
Edmonds said.
"It was a historic action," he
said. "The time has come."


When the board first proposed
the increase at a July meeting,
it also joined a lawsuit with for-
mer Florida Sen. Bob Graham to
wrest control of tuition from the
Legislature.
"I don't believe we are going
to have ill will," said Carolyn
Roberts, the board's chairwoman,
after the meeting. "The legislators
I know are citizens who are dedi-
cated to a great state."
Roberts said a circuit judge
would rule on the lawsuit by
December.
If the final ruling says the board
doesn't have the power, then "we
will live by the courts," Roberts
said. "We welcome a clarifica-
tion."
The board did not initially
consider the Bright Futures
scholarship program, which is
controlled by the Legislature, in
the tuition hike. But Edmonds said
he expects there should be enough
Bright Futures funds to cover the
increase.
He said the Legislature had
already planned for a 5 percent
increase before Crist's veto.
That increase would have taken

UF student dies after


friends find him in pool


By ANDREW TAN
Alligator Staff Writer
atan@alligator.org -

A UF student died Thursday after his
friends found him unconscious in a swim-
ming pool.
Remal R. Patel, a 19-year-old UF student
from Orlando, was at a pool at Campus
Club apartments with his friends when they
noticed he did not surface for a while, said
Gainesville Police Department Lt. Lonnie
Scott.
Patel's friends removed him from the
pool and tried to resuscitate him, Scott said.
When they couldn't revive him, Patel was
transported to Shands at UF.
Scott said Patel died at Shands around 2
p.m. Thursday. The cause of death could not
be confirmed by press time.


Steve Orlando, UF spokesman, said Patel
was a second-year accounting major.
Orlando said this is the fourth student
death since the start of the academic year.
He said it's unusual to see so many stu-
dent deaths in such a short period of time.
"It's just really sad."
Steve Orlando
UF spokesman

"It's just really sad," he said.
Neda Ahson, a political science sopho-
more, said she met Patel their freshman year.
She said Patel was a hard worker and "a
gentleman."
"He was so easy to talk to," Ahson said.
Plans for a memorial service could not be'
confirmed by press time.

SFCC's Kika Silva Pla Planetarium

Motor overheats, interrupts exams


By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

About 200 students ambled
around Turlington Plaza while
red and blue lights from parked
squad cars and fire engines
flashed across their faces.
Gainesville Fire Rescue
units responded to a fire alarm
in Turlington Hall around
10:25 p.m. Wednesday.
University Police Department
spokesman Capt. Jeff Holcomb
said the cause was an over-
heated elevator motor.
GFR spokeswoman Laura
Koppel said about nine units
were dispatched. They arrived
at 10:31 p.m. and smelled
smoke in the hallways.
No fire was present, she
said, but the state fire marshall
will investigate further causes.
Business finance exam was
disrupted in Turlington Hall
when the fire alarm went off.
The class had about eight min-
utes left to finish, said teaching
assistant Tom Doellman.
Holcomb said officers han-
dle similar cases about every
six months.
There are more than 950
buildings on campus. With
that many elevators, incidents

are bound to happen, Holcomb
said.
The biggest concern for the
exam was students cheating


while waiting for the building
to be cleared.
About 10 teaching assistants
monitored the crowd.


"We did everything in our
power to keep people from
sharing answers," Doellman
said.


UF student


arrested

By EVA MAE SMITH
Alligator Contributing Writer

A UF student was arrested this week
during a class in Williamson Hall 100.
David James Borah, 20, a third-year
student at UF, was arrested Wednesday
during an Introduction to Oceanography
class at 11:25 a.m.
Borah was arrested
PubliC on two Alachua County
Safety warrants, according to an
Alachua County police
report.
The first warrant was issued on Sept.
4 for the charges of cocaine selling and
possession, which are second- and third-
degree felonies, according to the report.
The second warrant was issued on
Sept. 19 for the same offenses, according
to the report.
About 100 students witnessed the ar-
rest made by four Alachua County sheriff
officers.
Borah, who was taken to the Alachua
County Jail after being escorted from the
classroom, was identified by a law en-
forcement officer and was later verified
by his photo identification.

Study: Consumer


confidence to fall


By ILEANA MORALES
Alligator Writer
With an unexpected rise in
gas prices and a declining hous-
ing market, Florida's consumer
confidence is expected to keep
dipping, a UF report says.
"From a consumer's point of
view, things are not going to be
rosy the next few months, maybe
even up to a year," said Chris
McCarty, director of the Survey
Research Center at UF's Bureau
of Economic and Business
Research.
Home equity, the value of
a mortgaged property after
deduction of charges against it,
has been up in the last five years,
McCarty said.
Equity loans have allowed


for much of consumer spending
during that period. With home
prices decreasing, consumers
will no longer be willing or able
to depend on equity loans, he
said.
Within the next year, hom-
eowners will be unable to sell
property and will be forced to
rent.
UF Rental rates
Research might drop in
Gainesville,
and the availability of rented
houses could rise, McCarty said.
The housing issue will also am-
plify the state budget crisis.
"Now this is not going to be
all doomsday stuff," McCarty
said. "It will all turn around
when house prices come down
enough that inventory dears."

Student sells Meyer products


By ILEANA MORALES
Alligator Writer
Before the protests and the Wikipedia entry, Toby
Turner already knew the quote "Don't Tase me, bro"
was going to catch on.
Since Andrew Meyer's arrest on Sept. 17, Turner,
a UF telecommunication productions senior, has de-
signed a T-shirt, created a remix video and made a
ring tone available with those famous words.
"Everyone has made T-shirts, but at least I'm his
friend," Turner said.
Turner met Meyer two years ago in a telecom-
munications class. The day after the arrest, Turner
designed a T-shirt logo on printfection.com.
"It just says 'Don't Tase me, bro,'" Turner said.
"A lot of them say 'Taser,' but that's retarded."
At least a hundred of the T-shirts, which go for
under $20, have been ordered.
Turner has seen T-shirts that look a lot like his,
with a Taser gun in a red "no" circle symbol under
the infamous phrase.
"I like to think they saw mine and stole it from
me," Turner said.
Turner also made a YouTube video listed as
"Don't Tase Me, Bro! (UF Student Tasered Remix)."
The live recordings of the incident at the University
Auditorium are paired with a hip-hop beat.
One of the video's more than 130,000 viewers


suggested he turn the remix into a ring tone. He
did.
The 99-cent" ring tone is linked off the YouTube
video for pocketfuzz.com. At least 20 people have
bought it.
Originally, the purpose of these efforts was to
raise money to help Meyer as he dealt with third-
degree felony and second-degree misdemeanor
charges.
"But he sounds pretty confident about it," Turner
said.
"Everyone has made T-shirts, but at
least I'm his friend."
Toby Turner
telecommunication productions senior

The T-shirt and ring tone sales are not making
much profit.
Turner will take the "couple hundred" dollars he
has made and throw Meyer a party when the ordeal
is done.
Meyer is "laying low" and has only spoken to
Turner once since his. arrest, he said. Turner hasn't
seen Meyer in the two classes they share this semes-
ter since the incident.
Meyer called him, he said, to say, "Sweet remix,
bro."

Group teaches tennis --


By MARLY FALCON
Alligator Contributing Writer
Disabled children in the Alachua
Country school district have a new ac-
tivity to look forward to during gym,
thanks to a group of UF students.
Tennis on Wheels is a student-run,
nonprofit organization that brings at-
tention to the need for better service
and development of disabled students.
Volunteers work with elementary and
middle school students with physical
and mental disabilities about two to
three times a week, teaching the students
how to play tennis.
Frances Cordero, co-president of the
group, said the students the organization
works with are extremely impressive, as
they learn to improve hand-eye coordi-
nation, balance and social skills.
"We teach them skills that most
people take for granted every day,"
Cordero said.
The 45-minute sessions are held at
Metcalfe Elementary School and Sidney
Lanier-Anchor School during the stu-
dents' gym period, she said.
Pam Bass, a physical therapist at
Metcalfe Elementary, says the program


allows children with disabilities to par-
ticipate in an organized sport that they
never had a chance to do before.
"Those students in wheelchairs are
able to play a game such as tennis with-
out limitations and not be at such a com-
petitive level," Bass said.
The program also allows the children
to avoid being stationary at their desks
all day, she said.
Christine B. Stopka, a UF professor
in adapted physical activity, agrees that
the program is effective in
Local reaching out.
News "Their behavior is even
better the day they know
TOW is coming so that they will be al-
lowed to participate," Stopka said.
The students get to form a real con-
nection and bond with the volunteers,
said Ann Goodman, a physical educa-
tion teacher at Sidney Lanier-Anchor.
"There is a comradeship between my
students and the UF students," she said.
Goodman said the friendships the
students make with the volunteers are
some of the main benefits of TOW.
The volunteers are very positive and
energetic, and the students love and re-
spond to that, she said.

Editorial
Now that Tasergate is winding down, we've been turning
up the tunes and dancing around the newsroom. The dubs
downtown ain't got nothing' on the movers and shakers in the
Department of Darts & Laurels. Actually, the only reason we
had time to write this is because our Spice Girls CD is skipping,
so we're giving the old boom box a break. While we listen to
nothing but commercials on the radio, we'll bring you this
week's toe-tappin' edition of...



Darts & Laurels
First up, we bestow a proud-to-be-an-American LAUREL
to all the students who've served their country. An Alligator
series this week featured three UF students who served in
Iraq and Afghanistan. These dedicated students braved snow,
sand and suicide bombers. Even if you don't support the wars,
you've got to give them credit for enduring what most of us
aren't willing to and serving our country while the rest of us sit
on our couches and watch "Singing Bee."
Even though these students put their lives on the line, many
Americans don't agree with the wars. And some people are
protesting this weekend in Washington, D.C. We throw a WAR-
What-is-it-good-for? DART at two student groups going to the
nation's capital for a protest organized by the Troops Out Now
Coalition. Why a dart, you ask? Chelsea Solme, president of
Students Against War said, "I think it's unrealistic to think we'll
get the government's attention."
That is the wrong attitude to have if you're making the trip
to D.C. to exercise your First Amendment rights. Protesting
worked for the Civil Rights movement. It worked for Vietnam.
We'd like to think it will work for Iraq. Please, protesters, take
this dart constructively, and protest your hearts out. You never
know which legislators might be listening.
All this talk of war is a bit of a downer, so we turn to the
ultimate upper: pom. We hand a I'm-too-sexy-for-my-shirt
LAUREL to the seven UF women who bared almost all for
Playboy's "Girls of the SEC" issue. Someone stole our office
copy, so we can't point out any specifics, but we're amazed at
the women who were brave enough to strip in the name of the
Southeastern Conference.
Our CD player is finally working again, and someone just
put in the Flashdance soundtrack. What a feeling to hear this
CD again.. We could dance all night. But one event on campus
assumes students can't, so here's a dancng-like-she's-never-
danced-before DART to Dance Marathon organizers for cut-
ting back the event's duration from 32 hours to 26.2. We get that
26.2 miles make up a marathon. But we don't get how reducing
the event's length will give participants "a greater understand-
ing and appreciation of what our Miracle Families undergo."
If anything, it will lessen the effects. Marathoners of the past
always claimed the duration of the event is the most important
aspect. According to UF's Dance Marathon Web site, "par-
ticipants experience physical and mental challenges during the
event, serving as a reminder of the obstacles children treated at
Shands face." Don't sugarcoat the fact that many students don't
want to devote 32 hours to the event or don't have the endur-
ance. Those kids you're dancing for don't have a say in how
long they suffer. It's not just about fundraising.
But when it comes to raising tuition, we hand an I-want-to-
thank-you LAUREL to the Board of Governors for defying the
Florida Legislature to raise tuition rates so the state universities
will have some much-needed money. Universities' budgets
have already been cut tremendously. It can allow us to have our
measly $3.68 per credit hour.
But not everyone is desperate for cash. We have to chuck a
mo'-money-mo'-problems DART at the Gator Party's election
spending. We can't imagine why the Gator Party needs $3,500 to
run its campaign. How many stickers, T-shirts and pizzas could
one party need? Senate candidates shouldn't need food to fuel
their campaigning. Their desire for the job should be enough.
The Progress Party is running on a slimmer budget, but we're
not so sure why Progress Party president Joseph Trimboli said
his party could save money if online voting were allowed.
But maybe it's just that we can't get no satisfaction.

The truth is on

YouTube
...playing with its cat.


cancer we get it
or should we learn to live with sour
smells?
Studies such as this one often
leave us with no solutions to the
proposed problems.
I'll bet the councils that release
Colleen Shea studies like the one about air fresh-
letters@alligator.org eners are run by a bunch of cavemen
wearing lab coats, pretending to be
scientists.
"What can we make up this week to keep the public from
enjoying life?" they excitedly ask one another. After several
minutes of eating raw meat and banging sticks, the cavemen
decide they will put out a new study that will cause us to fear
for our lives.
A recent story from The Associated Press about a possible
link between cancer and alcohol is a prime example of this
scientific trickery. The title of the article, "All types of alcohol
raise cancer risk," is enough to make any normal person
want to cry.
In the report, American researchers argued that it doesn't
matter what type of alcohol is consumed all kinds raise
the risk of breast cancer in women. This is confusing because
some studies suggest drinking red wine may prevent heart
disease. I think I'll take my chances with cancer.
So we shouldn't worry about Deadly Air Fresheners
because there will probably be a study released tomorrow
about how air fresheners are actually extremely healthy
In the meantime, though, it would be a good idea for me
to throw out those stinky old pizza boxes and empty beer
bottles. I need to make room for some more.
Colleen Shea is a sophomore majoring in journalism. Her
column appears on Fridays.


Column

Everything causes
A s a columnist, I feel it is my duty to provide you, the
handful of people other than my parents who actu-
ally read this, with the most important news stories
of the day. Hold on to your seats. Today's topic is: Deadly Air
Fresheners.
That's right. A recent study by the Natural Resources
Defense Council found that certain air fresheners contain
a chemical called phthalates (pronounced "pthh"). If used
enough, this chemical has the potential to lead to fertil-
ity problems, abnormalities in infant development and, you
guessed it cancer.
You might be thinking, "What's so important about this
new scientific study?" This information is extremely vital to
college students because we now have a choice to make that
affects our very existence.
We can choose to either die from that chemical that starts
with a "P," or we can die from the stench of weeks-old Pita Pit
leftovers, beer-soaked carpets and extremely dirty laundry.
I thought I knew all about dingy smells because I have a
younger brother who was born without a gene for cleanli-
ness. My parents have all but given up nagging him to dean.
They know after he has picked up every last flake of cereal
from his carpet, it'll be covered with more mysterious mor-
sels of unidentified food the next day.
He'll be pleased to know his room, in comparison to the
average college student's dorm room, would be classified as
moderately dean. Because in college no matter how sani-
tary you used to be your room will stink.
Among all the pizza boxes we keep forgetting to throw
away and the old socks our noses tell us are there but require
heavy-duty scientific equipment to actually find, we really
need a can of air freshener. This brings the dilemma: Should
we keep using them even though they might cause cancer,


The views expressed here are not necessarily those of the Alligator.

Letters to the Editor
Show some compassion for bus drivers
I am writing in response to Thursday's
column "RTS drivers should be more punc-
tual." Perhaps Stephanie Rosenberg should
sit on a bus for 12 hours straight and see how
she feels when, while trying to eat lunch,
she has students like herself start whining
because the driver is doing something during
"their time." Some Regional Transit System
drivers spend more than 12 hours on a bus
every day, and the least students can do is
have an ounce of compassion. They need to
use the bathroom, they need to stretch and,
Heaven forbid, they need to eat.
You waited for a bus "that never showed"
for 30 minutes? Try getting to the stop at least
five minutes before the scheduled time. Bus
drivers are given five minutes on either side
of the time listed, so if the bus is supposed to
be there at 1:30, don't-run to the bus stop at
1:29 and get upset when it doesn't come.
There is also this thing called traffic, and
here, we have plenty of it.
You know, 50,000 students at UF don't
teleport themselves to class, so don't be upset
when a bus designed for 45 sitting passengers
and 25 standing is filled with a few more.
How would you feel if it were you standing
outside in the sun when the bus drove past?
Get over your obsession with personal space,
fill every seat and relax. The ride is only 20
minutes; you can survive.
Or you can just walk to campus. It is so
much more environmentally friendly than
those big, fat, slow buses.
JohnRussel Bove

RTS works hard to improve services
I'm sure everyone can recall instances
when riding an RTS bus was less than pleas-
ant and would certainly want for the buses
to arrive, according to schedule, in addition
to also having room to comfortably fit on the
bus.
Now imagine that multiplied by almost
8 million.
That is the number of passengers RTS
handles on an annual basis, and that number
continues to increase each year. That statis-
tic is from the Wednesday meeting of the
Gainesville RTS Advisory Board, which I
attended.
Attending the meeting is one of the
requirements to become a member of the
board, to which I am applying for as a stu-
dent adjunct representing UEF
But I will also point out that RTS is already
aware of many things.
From the comments at the board meeting
by various RTS personnel, including their
transit director and chief transit planner, I can
attest that RTS is doing the best it can given
the funding and other logistical resources it
has.
The budget cuts that originated from the
highest offices "of our state found their way
down to the local level, and they do not only
apply to our university.
Despite such constraints, RTS is commit-
ted to ensuring the ridership needs of UF
students who contribute a predominant
portion to its operating budget.
In these budgetary doldrums, everyone
feels the drag.

Gator Party is human, too
I'm responding to Thursday's letter "No
progress with Gator." Ben Cavataro is right:
The Gator Party isn't perfect.
Like many other organizations around
campus, it made a fatal blunder: It let in hu-
man beings. People try their best and fail.
They exert themselves and come up short.
They do the best they can and it still isn't
enough. But that's life.
So is Gator without flaws? No, of course
not. But while some are busy criticizing them,
they get up every morning and actually do
their thing. As Theodore Roosevelt said,
"It's not the critic who counts ... The credit
belongs to the man in the arena whose face is
marred by dust and sweat and blood."
Don't vote for attacks, vote for action.
Don't vote for words, vote for deeds. Don't
vote for the critic, vote for the man in the
arena.

Without preacher, students condemned
I write Joey Johnsen this letter as Paul
wrote the Romans, with "great heaviness and
... sorrow in my heart."
I know I speak for the entire UF com-
munity when I write that we will daily feel


Johnsen's absence. What will we do without
him? I am certain we shall go to hell.
No one can deny his popularity: he at-
tracted daily crowds of up to four or five
students at a time.
Johnsen occasioned countless reactions
from Christians and non-Christians alike,
with titles such as "Sermons don't spread
Christian message" and "Preacher needlessly
attacks Krishnas."
I exaggerate not a bit when I write that he
became an integral part of Turlington Plaza
- like the lampposts or the trash cans.
At least we'll always have our memories
together. "For the wages of sin is death!"
Johnsen loudly reminded us, day after day,
hour after hour. Who could not admire your
pertinacity?
Never falling into the crooked paths of
new material, you persevered in his unques-
tionably effective routine. I've no doubt he
persuaded hundreds of students to change
their faith.
I cringe to think how the sinful will now
walk through our plaza unafraid of the
damnation awaiting their liberal and tolerant
lifestyles.
Goodbye, Joey.

Businesses use Tasering incident in advertisements


* SOME SAY THE ADS ARE
IN POOR TASTE.

By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer
Three days after Andrew Meyer
was Tasered by university police, a
sign went up in Gator Dawgs.
"Don't let your money get
Tasered," it read.
Otis Britt, who owns Gator
Dawgs, made the sign.
"People have laughed at it, but
no .one has said it's inappropriate,"
he said.
Britt has since taken the sign
down and put up a new one: "Taser
your taste buds with a spicy chicken
sandwich."
He said he's just making fun of
the incident and that he thought it
wasn't really that big of a deal.
The store isn't the only business
that's been cracking jokes about
Tasers.
Over the weekend, radio station
100.5 The Buzz temporarily changed
its name to 100.5 The Taser, asking
listeners to call in for prizes when
they heard a Taser sound effect.
Radio station representative
Candy Rupp wrote in an e-mail
that no one seemed offended by the
gimmick.
"We were not trying to take a

stand or offer an opinion," Rupp
wrote. "We were just trying to
lighten up the mood a bit."
Krissy Abdullah, a journalism


junior; created a Facebook group,
which has nearly 6,000 members,
supporting. Andrew Meyer called
"Don't Taser Me, Bro." She said she


does not think Taser advertisements
are appropriate.
"I think it's pretty disgusting,
actually," she said.


.ilailca nuup / .llIr al U L .ii
A sign reading "TASER Your taste Buds Bro!" stands outside Gator Dawgs on West University Avenue on
Thursday afternoon.


Abdullah said she doesn't appre-
ciate jokes she has heard about what
she said is a serious event.
"In a sense it's nice that people
are at least talking about it, acknowl-
edging it," she said, "but they're try-
ing to make a serious situation into
something lighthearted."
Jon D. Morris, an advertising
professor at UF, said that using ad-
vertising like this is a risk.
"There are times when you can
take bad things and people think
they're hysterical," he said. For ex-
ample, he said, Steven Colbert can
make fun of the news and be funny.
But Morris said companies that
use political events and tragedies to
advertise have to tread a fine line.
"I think it's in bad taste, but be-
yond that, it could be successful," he
said. "People could laugh at it."
Bigger companies can often
benefit from controversial publicity,
Morris said, but the individuals who
come up with the ads might not.
They often get publicly fired.
Britt said he doesn't have plans
to take down his Taser sign anytime
soon.
"Oh, I'm going to run it into the
ground," he said.
He said he thinks police prob-
ably didn't need to Taser Meyer, but
some protesters got out of hand.
"I guess I'm just kind of making
fun of it now," he said.

UF collects for food drive


By LAUREN COLLINS
Alligator Contributing Writer

The Gators have won conference
titles in both basketball and football, and
now they're hoping to add one for com-
munity service.
UF student-athletes, along with the
other 11 Southeastern Conference uni-
versities, started collecting cans on Sept.
21 as a part of a conference-wide canned
food and financial donation drive.
The SEC committee began planning
the Together We CAN food drive last
year and asked each university to choose
sports events where supporters could
make donations, said Bryan Patterson,
University Athletic Association life skills
coordinator.
UF chose to center its drive on the
football game against Auburn and invite
fans for support.
The UF committee is asking Gators
fans to bring canned goods, non-per-
ishables and monetary donations to the


Alltel Wireless Gator Fan Fest, opening
at 4 p.m. Saturday near Gate 2 of the
O'Connell Center.
All 18 UF varsity teams are partici-
pating in the food drive. Each team has a
representative responsible for collecting
and organizing the donations.
The canned food and donations col-
lected will be sent to the
Local Bread of the Mighty Food
News Bank in Gainesville. The
majority of the food will
be distributed through
family food boxes that feed families of
four, according to Kristina Stubs, a Bread
of the Mighty Food Bank employee.
The food drive is not a competition,,
but the university that collects the most
will be recognized during SEC commer-
cials and events.
Patterson said he hopes student-ath-
letes feel rewarded after contributing.
"The only satisfaction needed is the
satisfaction that you did something to
help someone else," he said.


Tuition still below


BOG, from Page 1

effect this fall, which means by the time
tuition climbs in spring, there should be
at least 10 percent of unused Bright Future
funds available.
"Our tuition conversation does not in-
clude Bright Futures," Roberts said. Florida
legislators "have the power and the author-
ity to deal with it as they see fit."
UF President Bernie Machen said UF
would welcome the-increase when it be-
comes available.
Machen said it would be easy for stu-
dents to adjust to the small increase, espe-
dally if Bright Futures bolsters it.
Still, the hike won't.pull UF completely
out of the red.
"It's about a $2 million item in a year
when we're having to cut $34 million out of
our budget," Machen said in an interview
after the meeting. "It really won't make a
significant impact this year, but of course,
it'll be in the budget next year."
The total increase will bring about $9.5
million to the State University System in
spring, which would be about $3.68 per
credit hour.
For a student taking 15 credit hours, the
increase would be about $55.


national average

This increase would still leave Florida
lagging behind the national tuition average
for-public universities by more than $2,000,
according to documents from the board.
The board's goal is to catch up with the
national average of $5,836, Roberts said.
Initially, 30 percent of the new revenue
was slated to go toward need-based aid,
but the board decided Thursday to allow
the individual universities to delegate aid
themselves.
"Our tuition conversation does
not include Bright Futures."
Carolyn Roberts
Florida Board of Governors chairwoman

Chancellor Mark Rosenberg said the
board has not discussed how a possible
lack of Bright Future funding would affect
students in wake of the increase, but he
added that he's confident the Legislature
will provide the needed funds.
"Every day I wake up I have concerns
about hundreds of issues. The most im-
portant concern that I wake up with is my
students and their ability to get a quality
education," he said.
"Right now, I don't believe they're get-
ting the quality they deserve."

UF adds to deep class with Vargas commitment


* UF HAS FIVE VERBALS
FROM THE 2008 CLASS.

By ANDY HUTCHINS
Alligator Writer
Despite losing seven players
from two national championship
teams, UF's roster is beyond full
heading into the next two years.
The latest addition is Eloy Vargas,


a 6-foot-10 power forward from
Plantation American Heritage High
and the No. 10 player in the class of
2008, according to Rivals.com. He
gave UF a verbal commitment late
Wednesday night.
Vargas virtually guarantees UF
coach Billy Donovan his second
top-five class in as many years, join-
ing Kenny Kadji, Allen Chaney, Ray
Shipman, and Erving Walker.
The only problem is, if all five


players remain committed and the
current team
remains intact,
the Gators will
have 14 potential
scholarship play-
ers to begin the
2008-09 season.
NCAA rules
Donovan allow 13 scholar-
ship players on
UF's roster, so one player has to


leave in the next year, likely by de-
committing, transferring or bolting
early for the NBA Draft.
For now, the focus is on Vargas.
"He's a hard-working young
man who has priorities of basket-
ball and academics," Vargas' high-
school coach Danny Herz said. "He
is the most skilled four-man in high
school basketball right now, a power
forward with the skills of a guard."
The recruiting process had


been a long and celebrated one for
Vargas, who averaged 21 points and
14 rebounds a game for American
Heritage last year. He drew interest
from Ohio State, Indiana, Clemson,
Louisville, Pittsburgh, Florida State
and Miami.
"He got a chance to be recruited
by some great coaches across the
country," Herz said. "He felt Florida
gave him a chance to develop and
play early." ..

Wuerffel audio clip


-inspired foiled team

ADVANCE, from page 19

attempted to settle everyone down, UF coach Urban
Meyer stopped him.
"I said, 'No, let it go,'" Meyer said Monday. "We
-let it go for about 15 minutes. I wanted to watch, and
I wanted to clear the air."
What happened the next day would turn out to
have more of an impact on the Gators' season than
any loss could have had.
"The team just got more together than ever,"
McMillan said. "When you have a loss like that, es-
pecially a conference loss to a great
Auburn team, you just have to re-
group and refocus. ... You can't let
one loss ruin your whole season."
The Gators regrouped in a team
meeting, beginning with Meyer
playing an audio clip of Danny
Wuerffel speaking after UF's loss
McMillan to Florida State in 1996.
"My mouth went dry," Meyer said of his reaction
to Wuerffel's speech. "It was a heck of a deal."
The players took it to heart as well.
"That really made us know that there was still a
lot to fight for in the season," wide receiver David
Nelson said. "That was only our fifth or sixth game
of the year, and we still had the SEC Championship
to fight for and the national championship to fight
for. Just knowing what the national championship
team in '96 went through, we knew that we had to
just keep fighting."
Auburn has been disappointing so far this season,
with losses to South Florida and Mississippi State,
but McMillan said UF will disregard the slow start.
"They've been upset a few times, but that doesn't
,take away from the ability and the athletes they have
on their team," McMillian said. "They're still one
of the top teams in the SEC. It's a huge game and a
game we look forward to before the season."


PICKS, from page 19

liar things in his eight years as a local.
Addison said some people choose to create "big
Marge Simpson hair" or wrap themselves up like mum-
mies during the chaos. While the fans seem to have a
rousing time playing dress up, a smarter individual
would realize that in just one night, he or she could
gather a lifetime supply of TP.
"Just one person, all that toilet paper I don't know.
They could probably give some to their grandkids,"
Addison said.
It costs $7,000 for every cleanup, and when the crew
can't pick the toilet paper from those hard-to-reach
places, they rely on a high-pressure water hose to blast,
the stuff out of the trees.
"It's basically like huge spit wads," Addison said.
While no one can pinpoint the exact origin of this
kind of debauchery, it seems Tigers fans don't re-
ally care. Any excuse to get loco with bathroom tissue
throws them into a swirl.
"We love our traditions," Addison said. "What are
we doing, this is probably the stupidest tradition. It def-
initely didn't come from a pagan ritual because pagans
like trees and stuff."
Addison admitted the ritual is a bit junior high-ish,
but Auburnites haven't completely caved in to their ju-
venile tendencies.
"We don't throw eggs in the tree, yet," Addison said.
"That might be the next step. I might try to start that."
With that note, on to the picks!

always go for the older player.
Sure, Kentucky probably won't
finish higher than the Gators, even
if the Wildcats pull off the upset, but
to even have voters talking about a
Kentucky player is an accomplish-
ment.
Tebow is expected to take the
Gators to the Sugar Bowl.
Woodson is expected to take the
Wildcats to the Liberty Bowl, and
Kentucky may actually end up doing
much better than that.
If Tebow leads UF to three wins,
he'll have almost guaranteed himself
a top-three finish, barring any late-


At 29-11, and in first place is Bryan "More whipped
than butter" Jones, who calls his girlfriend to ask if it's
OK to go to the bathroom, even in the middle of the
night. At least he's still breathing without getting per-
mission. For now.
In second at 28-12, is Brian "I quit my second job to
spend more time thinking of insults for myself" Steele,
who e-mails other Alligator writers suggestions about
his "American Idol" fetish, but that joke got old three
weeks ago.
In third at 25-15 is Mike "Licensed to Party" McCall,
who hasn't realized that he missed out on the trucker-
hat fad by about five years.
Batting cleanup at 23-17 is Nick "I make nice with
lonely male hotel managers at 2 a.m." Zaccardi, who
knows how to use his sexy voice to gain extra pillow
mints. Too bad for him, the voice isn't sexy enough to
get him any actual pillows.
In dead-ass last place with a piss-poor record of 22-18
is Jenna "Hey! I'm only one game behind Nick" Marina,
who fails to realize she's four games worse than the col-
lective records of the guest pickers. And one of them
picked Notre Dame to beat Georgia Tech in week one.

season meltdowns.
McFadden is the most explosive
player, but Arkansas has fallen in the
polls, which is not an ingredient in
the Heisman equation.
There are some other great run-
ning backs out there that could
sneak into the top five, such as Steve
Slaton and Ray Rice don't tell me
Michigan's Mike Hart even deserves
consideration but they aren't the
superstars McFadden is.
USC's John David Booty and
Boston College's Matt Ryan will also
draw consideration, but they don't
have the adoration Tebow is starting
to accumulate among voters.
Do I think Tebow will win the
Heisman?


No, I believe Brennan's Hawaii
squad will go undefeated and
he'll take the award if healthy, but
Tebow is in the mix a lot more than
I thought he would be at the begin-
ning of the season.
In 2008, Tebow will be the front-
runner, and I'm seeing him and Percy
Harvin standing one-two, and that's
not even something Matt Leinart and
Reggie Bush did.
But still, when it comes down to
it, there's only one thing that you
need to remember:
"There are no disabled people. ...
Only people who have tried to tackle
Tim Tebow."
Enjoy this Tebow ride; it's only
just starting.

When it comes to celebrating in
Auburn, Ala., confetti is for amateurs
and champagne is for pansies.
Bring on the toilet paper.
For every Auburn victory, hordes
of people gather at College Street
and Magnolia Avenue armed with
Charmin or Angel Soft and proceed
to paint the town white, sometimes
using thousands of rolls of toilet
paper.
With all that wasted toilet paper,
we at the alligatorSports Brand Picks
ColumnTM are a little concerned
about the hygiene and wasteful hab-
its of Auburn's students.
So we called Donny Addison,
Auburri recycling and waste reduc-
tion coordinator, for some perspec-
tive on the town's bathroom eti-
quette.
"I guess we wipe our butts with
University of Florida pennants,"
Addison said. "Obviously we live in
a state that has a lot of paper mills
and paper companies. I guess we're
flaunting our thing. It's like: 'Check
it out. We're loaded with toilet pa-
per.'
In the past, the tradition was
solely for home football victories.
Now, it seems every time the Tigers
pull out a win, even if it's in Alaska
for a swim meet, you can expect a
blizzard of white squares to blanket
the town.
The tradition has grown so much
that Toomer's Drug Store, which is
the epicenter of this ragin' good time,

Gators still remember '06 Auburn loss

By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Staff Writer
bjones@alligator.org

For the Gators, even a na-
tional championship can't erase
the memories of last year's loss
to Auburn.
After taking a 17-11 lead into
halftime, seemingly everything 7
went wrong for then-No. 2 UF,
resulting in a humbling 27-17 i
loss.
The No. 4 Gators (4-0, 2-0
Southeastern Conference) will
get a chance to avenge that loss
Saturday when Auburn (2-2, 0-1
SEC) comes to The Swamp for an
8 p.m. kickoff.
"It was horrible," UF de-
fensive tackle Clint McMillan
said. "Especially being in their
stadium and taking their lumps
like that, it's not something you
want to feel."
The players were so dis- ...
taught by the result that they
let their emotions get the best of
them following the game. Some
called each other out and broke
into fights, while others simply
kept to themselves and wept. Alligator File Photo

Upcoming games key to Tebow's Heisman hopes


// I lim Tebow can believe it's not
butter," and everyone else is
JL starting to believe it, too.
That saying is only one of many
"Tebow-isms" that have been branded
on the sophomore quarterback, but he's
somehow living up to the hype, which I
thought would be impossible.
He actually is the Great White Hope,
as roommate Tony Joiner put it.
Or, "His tears could cure cancer like
Chuck Norris, which punter Chas Henry
said was his favorite "Tebow-ism."
Well, maybe that's too far, Chas; but
we get the point.
The point being that Tebow is official-
ly on the Heisman bus and he might
even be driving it.
Louisville's Brian Brohm and
Arkansas' Darren McFadden have each


lost two games,
while Hawaii
., quarterback Colt
Brennan missed
his last game with
a sprained right
Brian Steele ankle. Brennan
Steele-ing Bases should be back this
bsteele@aigatororg week, but losing a
bsteele@alligator.org game of stat pad-
game of stat pad-
ders doesn't help.
According to
ESPN's "Experts Poll," Tebow is sec-
ond, behind McFadden. But one more
Razorbacks loss which will happen
- and he's out of there.
Basically, these next four games will
decide Tebow's Heisman fate. They are
all against Southeastern Conference com-
petition, and three of them are away from
The Swamp.


On Saturday, Auburn isn't the type
of team where great performances win
you a Heisman, but the Tigers sure could
kill it for the linebacker-plowing quarter-
back.
Just ask Brohm about lower-ranked
teams damaging your Heisman status.
That's what happened to him against
Kentucky.
Yes, Kentucky.
The team and its quarterback could
actually halt Tebow's Heisman locomo-
tive.
In three weeks, Tebow will match
arms, legs and wits against Andre'
Woodson, and this game could go far in
deciding the Heisman.
Woodson has already out-dueled
Brohm, and if he can do the same against
Tebow, voters will take notice.
Woodson's a senior, and the voters

UF GOLF

Gators travel to UK without Gal


STAFF REPORT

The UF women's golf team will
be in a familiar place this weekend,
but the familiar faces, both present
and absent, will be the story.
Two-time All-American Sandra
Gal, the senior leader of the fifth-
ranked Gators, did not make the


trip to the Wildcat Fall Invitational
in Lexington, Ky., for unspecified
reasons.
Her absence will make claiming
a title on the Big Blue Course at the
University Club of Kentucky a bit
more difficult for the' Gators, who
notched a 10-stroke win at the same
venue in 2005.


Alligator File Photo
Former UF golfer Mallory Blackwelder, now at Kentucky, will be teeing off
against the Gators at the Wildcat Fall Invitational this weekend.


The senior trio of Tiffany Chudy,
Whitney Myers and Eleanor Tucker
was part of that success, and junior
Ornella Jouven, who joins the trav-
eling team for her first action of the
season, blazed to a fourth-place fin-
ish at the event in 2005.
UF coach Jill Briles-Hinton isn't
overly concerned about traveling
without her star.
"We'll miss Sandra, but as a
coach, I look for the girls to step up
their games," she said.
The Gators placed fifth ear-
lier this month at the highly com-
petitive Mason Rudolph Women's
Championship, and Briles-Hinton
hopes to build on that success.
"I'd like for them to pick up
right where they left off with three
rounds under 300
in Nashville," she
said.
In these expe-
rienced ranks,
however, it may be
youth that serves
UF best.
Gal True freshman
Jessica Yadloczky, whose 72.70
stroke average is second on the team
to Gal, will play in the Gators' No. 1
slot after a strong qualifying effort.
Her showing at the Mason
Rudolph also earned her the No.
19 spot in the Golfweek individual
rankings, as she joined No. 17 Gal in
the top 20.
Mallory Blackwelder, who won
the event two years ago as a stud UF
freshman, will be competing against
the Gators this weekend.
She is -now a Kentucky junior
playing for her mother, Myra, who
is in her first season as the Wildcats'
coach.
The younger Blackwelder will be
the highest-ranked individual in the
field at No. 9.
"We'll be coming into this event
knowing a lot of the players, and
they know us and the course very
well," Briles-Hinton said.


Cross country


heads to Auburn I

By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Alligator Writer

While UF and Auburn face off in The Swamp
this weekend, the Gators cross country teams will be
heading into Tigers territory for their first road trip of .
the season.
Both the women and the men head into the -
Auburn Invitational coming off first-place finishes in
their home opener, the Mountain Dew Invitational,
on Sept. 7.
The women's team is No. 30 in the nation, while
the men look to break into the rankings for the first
time this season.
The Gators will be led by seniors Enoch Nadler


and Lindsay Sundell, who will
compete for the first time since
being named the Southeastern
Conference Male and Female
Athletes of the Week on Sept. 11.
The women will face slightly
stiffer competition than the men,
as No. 14 Iowa is the only other


ranked team in either field. The Hawkeyes also boast
All-America runners in seniors Racheal Marchand
and Diane Nukuri. The Gators aren't daunted by the
challenge, instead viewing the competition as a way
to measure their own talent.
"I think the team's going to do really well," junior
Kathryn Kramer said. "We're really, really strong this
year."
Senior Jeremy Miller is eager to help lead the
men's squad after coming back from injury and red-
shirting last season.
"Right now I feel 100 percent," he said. "I'm just
feeling strong and ready to run fast and compete
again. A top-10 finish should be pretty reasonable
for myself."
Having experienced leaders on each team is a plus
for the Gators, especially when on the road.
"The leadership we have now is really good com-
pared to what we've had in the past," UF coach Jeff
Pigg said. "We're all pretty dose-knit."
The Gators view the road trip as a way to prepare
for the Pre-NCAA Invitational on Oct. 13, so the
teams must take this opportunity to improve if they
want to compete with the best.
"We want to go in and race good people and see
where we stack up," Pigg said. "We're anxious to
do that right now because we know it's going to be
good."

Hampton leads UF in kills despite target on her back


* THE GATORS HEAD OUT ON THEIR SECOND
CONSECUTIVE ROAD TRIP THIS WEEKEND.

By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Writer

Volleyball teams around the Southeastern
Conference are beginning to gear their defenses
around senior outside hitter Marcie Hampton.
Z~thasn't made much of a difference.
No. 6 UF (11-0, 4-0 SEC) heads out on the road
again this weekend, facing Mississippi State (6-7, 1-
3 SEC) at 8 p.m. before heading to Alabama (7-6, 4-0
SEC) for a 2:30 p.m. match Sunday.
The Gators are 56-0 all-time against this week-
end's opponents, two of six SEC teams Coach Mary
Wise has never lost to in 16-plus seasons at UF.
LSU managed to stifle Hampton in the first game
Sunday, as the senior did not record a kill in five
attacks.
Even then, the Gators' depth came into play as
opposite hitter Amber McCray stepped in with
eight kills in the opener.
But Hampton wasn't silenced for long,
The senior came back to tally 20 kills for the
i itch, including 10 in the decisive game four.
"It took the pressure off me," Hampton said of
McCray's early play. "I was able to relax and just
say: 'You know what? I know how to put a ball
away.'"
She leads the team with 367 total attacks on the
season, 118 more than McCray, who owns the next-
highest total.
Wise isn't surprised defenses are focusing more
on Hampton.
"I can't imagine why you wouldn't," Wise said.
"If you play a basketball team, you would work real
hard to stop their leading point scorer, or if you're
going to play a football team, you're going to stop
their leading rusher.

"For Marcie to still get twenty kills, in spite of
how hard defenses are working, tells you a little bit
about where Marcie's game is right now."
Hampton feels teams cannot afford to only focus
on her.
"We have so many options, so many threats, that
if teams focus on me, someone else is going to step
up and put the ball away," Hampton said. "That's
what makes us so good and such a threat."
Setter Angie McGinnis determines which hitter
will get the attack and acknowledged she leans to-
ward Hampton in pressure-packed situations such
as the LSU match.

"We have so many options, so many
threats, that if teams focus on me, some-
one else is going to step up and put the
ball away."
Marcie Hampton
UF senior outside hitter


On the other hand, McGinnis also looks for the
best attack opportunities against the other team's
blocking scheme.
"My first priority would be to get [the hitters]
one-on-one," McGinnis said. "If I can get them one
blocker up, even if it's Callie (Rivers) on the outside
or an underclassman, I'm going to give them the
ball because I trust that anybody can get a one-on-
one kill over a senior getting. (past) two blocks up."
Wise can advise McGinnis, but when it comes
down to it, the senior makes the call on the court,
and she often makes the right one.
"In the end, it will always be Angie's decision,"
Wise said. "We can give her direction from the
bench in terms of what we think is open, but it's
kind of like the quarterback.
"We call the play, but based on what the defense
is doing, she has free rein on the court."

No. 15 Gators open SEC season with clean slate


By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Writer

For the UF soccer team, the a
rival of Southeastern Conferen
play means one thing: It's time
move on.
After a rocky start to a seas(
filled with high expectations, t
No. 15 Gators (4-2-2) are look
to forget their troubles and sta
anew.
"We're really taking the me
tality that this is a new season
a new start for us," goalkeep
Katie Fraine said. "We think th
it will give us a chance to sta
over and give us a new step I
things."
The Gators struggled since d
eating then-No. 9 Florida Sta
2-1 early on.
Following the emotional vi
tory, the team won only one
four games, which included tv
ties to unranked teams, amoi
them Florida Atlantic.
At the heart of the problem
have been offensive struggle
a mere 10 goals in eight gami
specifically.
The early-season scorh
output is the team's worst sin
2002, when the Gators finish
10-10-2, ending their streak
six consecutive SEC titles ai
missing the NCAA Tourname
altogether.
Senior forward Ashley Han
knows now is the time to tu
things around, and the time f
excuses is over.
"There's no more surprises,
Harris said. "We've play
against all types of teams,
types of weather, all types
grass and now it's time to w
and put it in the back of the net
"As long as we don't g
scored on, we know the goa
will come."


The Gators will get their
chance to turn things around
tonight, when the team heads to
Lr- Athens, Ga., to take on the rival
ce Bulldogs (7-1).
to If the past is any indication of
what's to come, this might be a
on good place to start, as the team is
he 16-0-1 all time against Georgia.
ng The Gators went 7-1-3 in SEC
irt play last season, but UF coach
Becky Burleigh plans to focus on
n- the future.
n, "It's the SEC, it's a whole new
er season," Burleigh said. "Everyone
at is 0-0. ... All the games in the SEC
krt are rivalry games and they mean


"We're really taking the
mentality that this is a new
season, a new start for
US.",

a little more."
The Gators' lone loss in con-
ference play last year came to
Tennessee, Sunday's opponent.
The No. 10 Volunteers (5-1-1)
handed the Gators a 2-1 loss in
Gainesville.


The game represents a sore
spot for Burleigh, who remem-
bers the heated matchup well.
"I don't know if the players
remember, but I definitely do,"
Burleigh said. "I always want to
beat Tennessee."
The team will likely receive
a boost from defender Melanie
Booth, who returned to the line-
up Sunday at Nebraska.
The redshirt senior came back
from the World Cup, where she
competed for Canada; to play
limited minutes in a 1-1 tie.
Junior Ameera Abdullah is
likely to see more playing time

as well..
Abdullah is working her way
back from an ankle injury suf-
fered against South FloridA on

U.S. BOWS OUT OF WORLD CUP:
The way Brazil and sensational
striker Marta -played, it didn't
matter who was in goal for the
United States.
Marta scored two goals-'nd
the Brazilians put on a dazzling
display of soccer Thursday, out-
hustling the Americans at nearly
every turn to cruise to a 4-0 vic-
tory in the Women's World Cup
semifinals.
The Brazilians will play in
their first final Sunday against
defending champion Germany.
"If you askedme how I do
that, I can't explain," Marta said,
even after watching TV replays of
her goals. "Things happen very
quickly during the match, and
afterward I start thinking: 'How
do I do that?'"
That's what American goalie
Hope Solo was asking. Angry she
was replaced in favor of veteran.
Briana Scurry, Solo lashed out at
U.S. coach Greg Ryan.
"It was the wrong decision,
and I think anybody that knows
anything about the game knows
that," Solo said. "There's no
doubt in my mind I would have
made those saves. ... You have to
live in the present. And you can't
live by big names. You can't live
in the past."
The U.S. will play Norway for
third place Sunday.
"It's a hard loss to swallow,"
said American striker &bby
Wambach, a former UF standout.
"More than anything it's just
heartbreaking, it's hard to go
down like this."

Spikes -- who \\as 6-4, 235 pounds
in high school had a pregame ritual
to soften up his competition.
"He wore that shield on his helmet,
and he would stalk the 50-yard line and
look at the other team," Kirby said. "He
was already intimidating them before
the game started. He's the most intimi-
dating player we ever had."
Spikes backed up his threatening
appearance on the field, leading Crest
to back-to-back North Carolina 3AA
State Championships in 2003 and 2004.
Kirby gave Spikes the assignment
of stopping screen passes, a play the
Chargers rarely allowed yardage on
with him on the field.
: "He would just basically play the
screen by himself," Kirby said. "He
would either tackle it behind the line of
scrimmage or intercept the pass. It was
amazing how he did that."
In his time at Crest, Spikes made
plenty of tackles, but one stands out
above the rest.
In a 2004 playoff game against
Piedmont High, Spikes leveled the op-
posing quarterback on the sideline and
knocked him out.
"I saw him swallowing his mouth-
piece and I, was amazed," Spikes said.
"His eyes were rolling in the back of
his head.
"I couldn't do anything but tell
them to bring the people out to come
get him."
The hit propelled Crest to a win
and cemented Spikes' reputation as a
big hitter.
"They had to get some doctor to
,sign off on the kid being allowed to re-
turn," Kirby said. "I was surprised that
they did, because he was out."
Not everyone enjoyed the hit,
however. At least one member of
the Chargers' faithful was unhappy
Spikes' mother.
"I was there for that one, and I said,
'Oh my God, he just hurt somebody's
child.' I told Brandon not to try to hurt
people, and he said he wasn't trying to
hurt anybody, but that's what football
is about," she said.


The Predator
Spikes carried his knack for deliver-
ing punishment with him to UF, where
he is widely regarded as one of the
hardest hitters on the team.
Ask a Gators player who they'd
least like to face, and one name always
comes up Spikes.
"I definitely don't want to run into
him on purpose," tight end Cornelius
Ingram said.
He hasn't knocked anyone out yet,
but Spikes has been very effective in his
short career in Gainesville.
He leads the team with 36 tackles,
including 21 solo and 2.5 for loss.
"I'm really looking forward to
putting somebody on Jacked Up' in
college, but I haven't really gotten the
chance yet," he said.
His wish almost came true against
Ole Miss, when he found himself
alone in the backfield with quarterback
Seth Adams. Spikes plowed through
Adams,, but was flagged for roughing
the passer.
. Spikes' reputation and appearance
have earned him a nickname at UF
- The Predator, after the 1987 film
about an extraterrestrial warrior.
The linebacker's visor and dread-
locks offer a resemblance to the
creature, and the image coupled with
his aggressive play prompted UF stu-
dents to create a Facebook group titled
"Brandon Spikes = The Predator."
"Somebody said something to me
about that on the team, but I haven't
seen it yet," he said. "Is that the thing
with the things coming out of his head?
I think it's cool to have a nickname like
that.".

Student of the Game
Part of the reason for Spikes' success
is his desire to learn from past players.
Since high school, he has spent time
observing current college and NFL
linebackers, as well as studying greats
like Dick Butkus and Ray Nitschke.
His appreciation of the past is evi-
dent in everything from his technrue


Alligaror rile rnotou
to his jersey.
"Very few kids know who Dick
Butkus is in high school," Kirby said.
"Brandon knew him, and he wanted to
wear 51 because of Dick Butkus."
Based on his knowledge of the posi-
tion, Spikes seems like a born lineback-
er, but he almost wound up at a dif-
ferent spot. When he arrived at Crest,
Spikes was placed at defensive end, but
was allowed to play middle linebacker
on the practice squad against his team's
starting offense.
"He would kill us everyday in prac-
tice," Kirby said. "We couldn't even
run our offense. I finally got away from
being hardheaded and let him play
linebacker, and the rest is history."
Spikes was named to the Army
All-American team as a senior, and
was rated the No. 6 linebacker in the
country by Scout.com.
He brought his high expectations
to college, where he has aspirations of
joining the greats he studies.
He racked up 11 tackles in the sea-
son opener against Western Kentucky.
"I called him after the first game,
and he was all pumped up," Kirby
said. "He said, 'Coach, I missed some
checks, but I'm going to win the Butkus
Award before I leave this school.' He's
already got his goals, and he's always
been that way. So far he's realized every
goal he has ever set."
On a Saturday in The Swamp, it
would be easy for.Spikes to only think
of his lofty football goals winning a
game, another championship, awards,
or starting an NFL career.
But sometime before he steps on the
field, his phone will ring and remind
him of his off-the-field mission.
"I always call before ball games,"
Allen said. "If I can't make it, I'll al-
ways call and just say, 'Brandon, good
luck on your game. I love you and be
safe on the field.' I always do that if I
don't get to come."
The call will offer reassurance and
remind him of just how many people
he plays for.
