AUBURN 20 0 UF17



Gators relive Auburn nightmare
By BRIAN STEELE ,.
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

Urban Meyer had no choice but to pace the side-
lines and watch helplessly.
For the second straight year, Auburn had the
Gators' number. '
As an 18-year-old freshman kicker from Ft.
Lauderdale swung his right leg, the staring contests
commenced.
Tim Tebow dropped to one knee and gazed off into
the distance he didn't blink. He watched Auburn
players sprint onto the field that he loved since he
knew it existed.
"It feels like you're getting stabbed. We
came out, stumbled a little bit and got hit
in the mouth."
Carlton Medder
UF offensive tackle


Percy Harvin did the same kneeled and stared.
As Tebow left the field, he removed his eye-black
stickers. The Gators' warrior had been defaced.
So had UF's record.
"It feels like you're getting stabbed," senior of-
fensive tackle Carlton Medder said. "We came out,
stumbled a little bit and got hit in the mouth. We just
fell apart. We don't expect to lose any game. We got a
lot of people crying. All the heads were down."
It all finally ended: The Gators' 18-game home win-
ning streak, Meyer's perfect home record.
UF's road to a repeat national championship got a
whole lot tougher Saturday as the Tigers downed the
Gators 20-17 in front of a packed crowd of 90,685 in
The Swamp.
The Gator chomp was transformed into the Gator
whimper as Tigers kicker Wes Byrum mocked UF's
trademark celebration after his dutch kick.
"You could see some of the seniors in there, it seems

RTS alters


bus routes,


travel times

By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer

Changes to the paths and times of sev-
eral bus routes will go into effect today.
In addition to the route changes, spouses
and partners of UF students and employees
will now be able to ride Regional Transit
System buses for free.
Campus Route 122, the North-South
Circulator, will change its
Local route to travel clockwise
News around campus and include
access to the Hub.
The changes were due to more than 20
students who complained to RTS, said Jesus
Gomez, RTS transit director.
"The ones who used to ride it before are
happy about it," he said. "We already have
e-mails saying thank you."
The route will be a few minutes longer,
but the same number of buses will run,
Gomez said.
Opening free bus rides to spouses will
affect 1,705 people, but Gomez said bus
schedules will not be adjusted.
The rides for spouses are being pre-paid
by UF, which already participates in RTS's
Employee Bus Program, allowing employ-
ees to ride the buses free of charge.
The program will cost UF $58,500 this
year, making it the largest group that par-
ticipates. Alachua County, the VA Hospital
and Shands also pre-pay for bus rides for
their employees.


UF officials, donors rub elbows at campaign kickoff


* BY 2012, UF HOPES TO
RAISE $1.5 BILLION.

By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Staff Writer
llewis@alligator.org

UF dignitaries were all smiles
Friday night as they mingled at a
ritzy gala with university benefac-
tors, some of whom have given


more than $1 million.
Showing off their finest cock-
tail wear, leaders including UF
President Bernie Machen thanked
donors for their gifts but said more
money is needed.
A billion dollars more, to be
exact.
Amid glowing tabletops and
well-stocked bars, UF leaders con-
verged at the O'Connell Center for


a soiree designed
to charm the
university's big-
gest donors.
The swanky
party marked the
official unveil-
ing of the largest
Machen fundraising cam-
paign in UF's history, titled Florida
Tomorrow. By 2012, UF hopes to


have raked in $1.5 billion through
the drive $300 million more than
initially announced.
"That's a big number, but we
have big dreams," Machen said in a
speech to attendees Friday.
Although fundraising for the
effort has already been underway
for about two years, Friday's pro-
gram represented the kickoff of the
campaign's "public phase." Since


2005, more than $500 million has
been raised.
To celebrate the occasion, UP
gave the O'Connell Center a Space
Mountain-like makeover, covering
it in black fabric and futuristic deco-
rations to enhance the evening's
theme, "Voyage to Tomorrow."
The thousand or so guests sat
around tables glowing in soothing

By virtue of a
last-second field
goal, Auburn de-
feated the Gators
for a second con-
secutive season.
The loss snapped
an 18-game home
winning streak
for UF.

R Towing companies
aren't highly regarded
around Gainesville, but do
tow-truck drivers deserve
a bad reputation? An

nied a driver on his rounds
Friday night to find out.

Going,


Towing, Gone


Tow-truck operator faces angry drivers


By ANDREW TAN
Alligator Staff Writer
atan@alligator.org


While the word "hope" grips the
steering wheel, a cigarette wedged
in between "less" hangs outside the
window of the blue Ford F-450 XLT
tow truck.
His knuckles read "hopeless."
Ryan Williams, a manager of
Watson's Towing, said he's had the
ornately designed tattoos since he
first started working in towing at
age 23 or 24. Williams, now 32, said
he got them when he was "young
and dumb."
Williams has been towing in
Gainesville for seven years, and he
has dealt with "too many" people
who have yelled at him. On Friday
night, he allowed a reporter to
accompany him as he made his
rounds.
The idea for the tattoo, he said,
originated in an argument with a
customer that resulted in him get-
ting chewed out by his boss. Later,
he got the tattoos to show custom-
ers that fighting with him would be
"hopeless."
On Friday night, Williams'
truck cruises into College Park
Apartments, a collection of apart-
ment buildings owned by Paradigm
Properties. As he passes down the
asphalt labyrinth in the area north of
University Avenue, students stare.
One student in a blue shirt exits
his car, eyeing the truck.
Williams parks the truck a few
feet over and drops out of the cab.
He walks through the parking lot,
looking for little white Paradigm
decals with red lettering.
Some cars have them; a few have
orange slips of paper that indicate
they are guests.
Williams stops at a Nissan
Pathfinder. He checks for that magic
tag before breaking out his Kodak
C530 EasyShare digital camera. He
snaps a quick picture before he re-


turns to the truck.
While a picture has been taken,
Williams leaves College Park with-
out any cars in tow.
Around half an hour later, he
returns to the Watson's Towing lot
and meets up with a white Izusu
tow truck.
Three trucks return to College
Park more than a half hour after
the initial inspection. The car that
belonged to the wide-eyed man has
moved from the tow-away spot.
Williams gets out to do another
check of the vehicles. He said there
were five he could have taken.

As he backs up to pick
up the car, a drunken
young woman rushes
down the stairs shouting,
"That's my car!"

While the white Izusu claims the
Pathfinder, Williams backs up to
take a black Nissan XTerra. In under
a minute, he uses a yellow box to
maneuver the head onto the wheels
of the Nissan and grip it.
The Ford F-450 reaches the stop
sign before Williams gets out to put
on the warning lights and strap the
XTerra into place. Why didn't he do
this in the parking spot?
The truck was blocking the road
and he didn't want to affect traffic.
"Trying to be courteous," he said
with a smile.

"That's My Car!"
Williams moves quickly to the
lot with the other trucks. He fills out
the invoice for the SUV as he hits red
lights.
After parking the cars in the lot,
Williams once again leaves to find
other cars.
He hops out in another parking
lot near the Courtyards, a complex
owned by Trimark Properties, where
he finds a gray Honda Accord. As


Williams begins to back up, a man in
a white shirt and shorts appears.
"Hey!" the UF student shouts.
The student arrives at his car
before the tow truck has seized the
car. Williams leaves the parking lot
without a car attached.
He said he's not disappointed.
Later in the evening, Williams
finds a yellow XTerra in College
Park with no decal or guest slip.
However, as he backs up to pick up
the car, a drunken young woman
rushes down the stairs shouting,
"That's my car!"
A chorus of men at the balcony of
an apartment down the street echo
her, shouting, "That's her car."
The blonde pleads with Williams
and tells him she is a resident. As he
tells her the XTerra doesn't have a
decal, she inspects the dash of the
SUV.
"Oh, this isn't my car," she says.
She tells him he can tow it and
shouts back to the crowd of voices
that it's not her car. Before Williams
can respond, she twirls around and
struts her way back to the apartment
down the street.

The Confrontation
Williams escapes many encoun-
ters without much confrontation,
but as Friday night turns into early
Saturday, he's headed for a show-
down.
He walks through Stoneridge
Apartments flashing pen-size
flashlights on each car before a
mustached man appears in a cow-
boy hat.
"Which one of you assholes
towed my car?" the man asks, wear-
ing glasses that resemble those of
Theodore Roosevelt.
Williams tells the man he will
need to talk to the office since he was
not responsible for the tow.
The man, with a build slightly
larger than Williams', continues to
demand that his car be returned.
He was just visiting someone

fuel before returning to towing cars.


who was not at home, the man said.
He wasn't gone for more than ten
minutes, he said.
Williams tells him that he will
have to call the manager of the tow-
ing company on Monday.
As the dispute escalates, Williams
begins to walk toward the truck.
The man follows.
Williams strides confidently and
reaches the truck before him. The
man knocks on the window and
Williams rolls it down partially.
Again he demands his car.
Soon, the man reaches into the
car and Williams darts his head out
of the way. When the man is unable


to grab Williams, Williams rolls up
the window and the man takes his
hands out of the truck.

Just Another Night
At the end of the night, Williams
returns to the Courtyards to find
another illegally parked car.
A small female voice strains as
she yells expletives at Williams.
Williams, unfazed by the wom-
an, strolls through the Courtyards
before returning to the truck.
As he returns, the voice again
shouts "F*** you, towing!"
"Thank you," Williams says as he
enters the truck.

Graham urges Americans to learn second language


Charles Roop /Alligator Staff
Former Sen. Bob Graham speaks about the importance of learning a second language
to a crowd in Dauer Hall on Friday morning.
\


By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org
During his opening speech at the open
house for UF's Center for European Studies,
former Sen. Bob Graham stressed the impor-
tance of learning a second language.
The event, held Friday in Dauer Hall,
was called "The World in Words: Learn a
Language."
According to recent language surveys,
he said, most Americans fit into three cat-
egories when it comes to appreciating other
languages.
He said 33. percent of Americans don't
care to learn other languages, 60 percent are
satisfied being spectators and 7 percent are
"gladiators."
"Who's the gladiator here today?"
Graham, also a former governor, asked.
Raising his voice, he repeated, "Who's a
gladiator?"
He was answered with hoots and ap-
plause.
"Gladiators of the world unite," he said.
"There is victory there for us."
Graham said. too often Americans as-
sume that since English is spoken around the
world, they shouldn't have to know other
languages.
"It's not just the ability to one-on-one
communicate," Graham said. "It's the op-
portunity to understand the culture."
A deeper knowledge of other countries'
languages and cultures would significantly
improve America's foreign relations, he said.


"If you can't speak the language, you
can't start the process of engagement with
the rest of the world," Graham said.
Because of language and cultural gaps,
he said the American government has made
mistakes with grave consequences, citing the
rejection of the League of Nations and mis-
understandings that led to the Iraq war.
"The linguistic inability of the United
States has cost a price," Graham said.
"The linguistic inability of the
United States has cost a price."
Bob Graham
former Florida senator

He's not the only one who feels that way.
"Yeah, man, I think it's definitely a good
idea to have an understanding of other
cultures," said Misty Ray, a UF sociology
junior who attended the event. "That's what
America is all about."
Yasuo Uotate, a lecturer in UF's language
department who was giving five-minute
Japanese lessons at the event, said people
should try to expand their cultural perspec-
tives.
"It's becoming more of a borderless
world," Uotate said.
Graham said he had some of his own
ideas about how people could rapidly learn
a new language.
"If you parachuted naked into a country
that speaks another language, you're gonna
learn to speak it pretty fast, or it's gonna be a
cold time for you," he said with a laugh.

Editorial


The Winner Is...

Both SG parties less

than impressive
I hoe Student Government election is almost upon us. And
you know what that means: The Alligator's endorse-
ment will be bestowed on the most-deserving parties
and candidates or withheld because we think no one has
any clue what they're doing.
This time around, we're going to do things a little differ-
ently.
We didn't want to not endorse either party, because we felt
that would be a cop-out. But we didn't think either party de-
served a full-on endorsement either.
So we sat and wondered, what to.do?
We received our answer in the form of Kyle Robisch, the
independent candidate running for the Graham-Simpson-
Trusler seat in the Student Senate.
In a meeting with the Alligator editorial board, Robisch
said running as an independent gives him more freedom to
support his constituents. Instead of feeling compelled to sup-
port a party's every choice, regardless of if it would be good
for his constituents, he can vote for what his voters will actu-
ally want and push for their issues instead of someone else's.
"I don't want to be locked into doing what [the parties] want
to do," Robisch said.
Damn straight.
The Progress Party's platform contains a lot of issues and
ideas, but only a handful of them are good. On the other hand,
the Gator Party's much shorter "10-point platform" is mostly
poorly thought-out ideas.
But even if Progress won every Senate seat it has a candi-
date for 29 Gator would still be the majority party, thanks
to its sweeping victory in the spring.
So this semester, we say vote in the spirit of Kyle Robisch.
He's a fraternity member who is defying convention by run-
ning as an independent, even though his brothers are Gator
supporters. He's a freshman from Kansas who already knows
more about UF's SG than most students learn in four years.
Gator claims it has the most diverse slate and seems to think
this diversity means it has the best party. While we appreciate
diversity as much as the next person, slating should be about
who is the most qualified to represent voters. Gator said its
platform only has 10 points because it's "more tangible" than
a larger platform. But Gator, which dominates SG already,
hasn't accomplished many of its goals from last semester. No
surprise, but it ran on the idea of "tangible" goals then, too.
The sad truth is, even if Gator loses every seat possible, it
will still be the majority party. We can only hope for opposing
voices to stand up for what's best for students, not just what's
best for the Gator Party.
But we get the feeling Progress is just running as the non-
Gator Party. Progress seems to run on the idea that it is against
everything SG (i.e., Gator) is now. By calling for "honesty, ac-
countability, transparency and reform" in SG, Progress seems
to say SG is just a glorified dub that's really hard to get into.
That may be true, but it doesn't make an opposition party.
So when you go to the polls Tuesday or Wednesday, don't
vote for a particular party. Vote for which candidates will be
best for you as a student. And if you live in the Graham area,
vote for Kyle Robisch.
Both parties have good ideas, such as working toward im-
plementing Gmail, creating a sustainability minor, reforming
campaign spending and creating an SG "Seal of Approval" for

we want to see come to fruition. If both parties take the Kyle
Robisch approach of supporting the best ideas, regardless of
whose they are, we'll have a better SG.

Column

Bush quote puts Auburn loss in context


I'm miserable. I'm depressed. I'm down and out.
This was supposed to be payback. This was supposed
to be justice.
How could you do this to me, lucky orange-and-blue polo
shirt?
After the final field goal Saturday night, Auburn rushed
the field and the final score was called. I was speechless, and
it had nothing to do with my war-torn vocal cords.
Everyone stood around, stunned, waiting for someone to
tell us it had all been a sick joke.
A half-hour later, some guy in a red shirt who had an ID
badge hanging around his neck told me it was time to go
home.
"Not yet," I rasped.
I eventually left the stadium, only looking forward to cry-
ing myself to sleep. No luck, for I was too dehydrated.
I feared the nightmares ahead of me. But that was of little
matter I couldn't even dream.
Florida football was my purest form of joy It was my
reason to get up in the morning and go to class. It was my
religion, but now God is dead.
And as Friedrich Nietzsche went on to say, "God remains
dead. And we have killed him."
I don't pay in-state tuition with my hard-earned Bright
Futures money for this kind of mental anguish.
So on Sunday morning, I sought comfort in my only
source of remaining happiness: looking for grammatical er-
rors in political speeches. It was instant bliss.
On Wednesday, it seems that our fearless leader, President
Bush, spoke to television cameras and a group of fourth- and
fifth-graders from P.S. 76 in New York City, only to make a
slight error in phrase.
"As yesterday's positive report card shows," the presi-
dent said, "Childrens do learn when standards are high and
results are measured."
That's right. He actually said, "Childrens do learn." This


was a speech about the importance
of education. He's either a total mo-
ron or a genius of irony.
President *Beorge W. Gush, who
are these childrenn" of whom you
speak?
Vincent Massaro Perhaps the president was dem-
letters@alligator.org onstrating the bounds of progress
made in education since he gradu-
ated from. elementary school.
"Look, I can't talk worth a dam, but there are hope for
these kids yet," I imagine the president saying.
And no, it's not "is," because if it were "is," then there
would actually be hope but there ain't.
See, being grammatically incorrect is a clever method to
evade accountability. "Childrens" are like children, but they
only exist in Ameriga, Bush's fictitious land of freedom and
"Mission Accomplished" banners.
In Ameriga, childrenn" learn, but children don't.
What makes this story better is that the transcript of the
speech came out corrected, with "children do learn."
Apparently, the stenographers can't misspell as quickly as
they can write correctly.
Thank you, President Bush. You've made me smile again.
Life can and will go on. This good will on your part is a step
in the right direction.
Even a journey of 7,000 miles home from Iraq begins with
a single step, you know.
As for my football woes, I guess I'm feeling a little better.
I've heard that in the wild, the second set of Tigers is always
easier to beat. Here we come, Louisiana State University.
Maybe it's like what one kid said as I was walking home
from the game: "What's wrong with losing to Auburn? It's
just our style."

Campus preacher needs replacement.
Although I am not familiar with the depar-
ture of Joey Johnsen from Turlington Plaza, I
felt compelled to respond to Ryan Heuser's
Friday letter to the editor. His letter resounded
with sorrowful loss, which many of us have or
will experience in life sooner or later.
But his damnation decree for UF students
without Johnsen is not the way to grieve a loss.
Another preacher, Charles Stanley, once said,
"It is not Jesus' voice accusing us of constantly
falling short. He is the one who lives to inter-


cede for us."
I sincerely hope someone will fill the gap
Johnsen left on Turlington Plaza. However,
it is faith in Jesus that saves, not any human
being's presence. And as Christians, we never
say goodbye -because sooner or later we will
meet again.

Poetry event benefits wildlife-care organization


By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

With a backdrop of oil and watercolor landscape paint-
ings, poets stepped up to the microphone and shared pieces
of themselves with an audience.
The poet group ThirdEyeSpoken hosted its second-an-
niversary event, "Wild-N-Off the Chain," at Kanapaha
Botanical Gardens on Friday evening.
The event cost about $1,000, and Gainesville High School
paid for more than half of the cost through parent and student
donations, said Lacey Nagy, co-founder of ThirdEyeSpoken.
She said about 100 people attended the event.
All proceeds went to Florida Wildlife Care, a nonprofit
organization that rescues sick and injured wildlife.
Nagy discovered the wildlife organization when her cat
took a baby bird into her home.
Florida Wildlife Care brought animals to Friday's event,
including an armadillo, a screech owl, free-tailed bats and a
opossum named George.
Eddie Barker, a ThirdEyeSpoken production member,
played "Stuff That Works," a song by Guy Clark, on his
acoustic guitar.
Barker said, "It just popped in my head on the way over
here."
As a recovering alcoholic, Barker said he would have
never attended a poetry event 10 years ago.
He said ThirdEyeSpoken has helped him leave some of
that life behind.
"Keep your ears open, and you can learn a lot," Barker
said.
ThirdEyeSpoken wasn't the only poetry group at the event.
The Write Side Poets, a youth slam team from Ft. Lauderdale
and Miami, made an appearance.
A slam recites original poetry, usually in a competitive.set-
ting. While slam teams throughout the state attended, they
weren't there to compete but to share their poetry.
Maxis Madd, an 18-year-old from Florida International
University, recited a poem about the tattoos she wanted,
which included a crucifix, Star of David, gay pride flag, love
notes on her chest and pictures of her future children.
Paola Ortega, a UF criminology freshman, is also a mem-
ber of Write Side Poets. She presented a piece about racism
and brought up the Jena Six controversy.
She gets her inspiration from the Bible.
"I want to speak for those who have no voice," Ortega


said in her performance. "I have my own definition of silence:
death."
David Maas, founder of "The Word Is Spoken," a lo-
cal open- mic night, performed a poem titled "Dear Santa
Claus."
Wearing a red Santa hat, he compared a child's belief to a
pop-up book that was slowly flattened.
The poem came to him while he was writing a different
piece.
"It was actually making a broader statement about the loss
of innocence, loss of childhood," Maas said.
Matt "Cuban" Hernandez and Felton "Knight Krawler"
Stergis traveled from Jacksonville to attend. They are mem-
bers of the Jacksonville Slam Team.
"It's better that you conquer your demons
before you get on the mic."
Felton Stergis
Jacksonville Slam Team member


Hernandez described love as "confetti getting stuck in ce-
ment and rising with the breeze."
He said he likes performing in front of an audience be-
cause it's an "extreme energy exchange."
Stergis said that in order to get in front of an audience,
poets have to condition themselves.
"It's better that you conquer your demons before you get
on the mic," he said.
While presenting a poem together, Hernandez and Stergis
kept repeating the sentiment of the evening. With the strength
of their voices and increased fervor, they said, "My heart's an
amplifier, I don't need no mic."
Ryan Schaufert, a friend of ThirdEyeSpoken, shared a
poem about wars that can't be won.
"I'm a death row inmate and every day is my last meal,"
Schaufert said while on stage.
He said he enjoyed the group pieces the most.
"Usually poetry is just about one person," he said. "It
changes the whole meaning of it."
Jimmy Nil Fishhawk, a production member and spoken-
word artist of ThirdEyeSpoken, talked about "clawing for
fire."
By living in the country, he gets inspiration from nature.
Fishhawk said he liked listening to the younger talent.

Matt Hernandez performs "Friends" during the "Wild-N-

Friday evening.
"Seeing these kids tonight just blew me away," he said.
Nagy said she appreciated the diversity of the
crowd, especially the older generations who re-
spected the poetic vision of featured artists.
"I really dig that about our crowd," she said, "the generations
that come and encourage us to speak our voice."

Participants in "Great Underwear Dash 6" soak in the sprinklers next to the Racquet Club Dining

* THE OPENING WAS
HELD AT THE UNDIE RUN.

The Progress Party kicked
off its campaign for fall's
Student Government election
by taking it off.
Sam Miorelli, Progress
Party chief counsel, said about
10 candidates and party vol-
unteers stripped down to their
underwear as part of Friday
night's "Great Underwear
Dash 6."
"We decided to kick off our
campaign at the underwear
run because that's something
very student-run," Miorelli
said. "It's all about the com-
munity, and that's the kind
of SG outreach we're looking
for."
For the event, which has
been held every semester since
spring 2005, UF students make
donations to local shelters by
removing their clothes and
then running around campus.
Miorelli said the Progress
envoy wore various types of


white underwear with their
names and the words "Pd. Pol.
Ad" across the backside.
Election rules require par-
ties to notify students of politi-
cal ads.
They also spelled out
"Progress" on their chests in
green and white paint, the
party's colors.
Miorelli said he has been

Student previous

was one of
the best turnouts so far, though
he said he wasn't sure how
many attended. According to
Facebook, the event had 657
confirmed guests.
Miorelli said the group
left at "Alachua," the cam-
pus artwork known as "The
French Fries," and headed to
13th Street. From. there, the
group ran north to University
Avenue, crossing the street to
run by the bars and dubs just
north of campus.
"There were Gator fans,
Auburn fans, they were all
high-fiving us," Miorelli said.
"I heard people at Publix talk-
ing about it the next day."

Lil' Wayne concert at UF benefits officer's fund


* STUDENTS CAN BUY TICK-
ETS AT A DISCOUNT.

By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

Hip-hop artists Lil' Wayne
and Fabolous are coming to the
O'Connell Center on Monday.


However, the night won't fo-
cus entirely on rap music. Social
Studies Inc., the promotions com-
pany planning the event, is hoping
to spread drinking-and-driving
awareness.
Nick Roses, the vice president
of media relations, said the com-
pany wanted to help people with
a local issue.


A portion of the money col-
lected will go to the Corey Dahlem
Benevolent Fund, which was creat-
ed when Gainesville
Local police Lt. Corey
News Dahlem was killed
by a drunken driver
after the spring basketball champi-
onship game.
"Everyone here are pretty


much students or graduates of
the university," Roses said. "They
all knew about Corey Dahlem. It
clicked for them."
The money in the .fund goes
toward college costs for Dahlem's
children, Katie and Brandon. This
includes housing, tuition and text-
books.
Sally Dahlem, their mother, said


she hopes the awareness will save
lives and show people how drink-
ing and driving can affect families.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the
performance will start at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets run from $36 to $101.
Students can get $5 off with a
valid student ID. Tickets can be
purchased through the University
Box Office or Ticketmaster.

plates of seared beef tenderloin and chocolate
mousse.
Chris Brazda, a spokesman for the UF
Foundation, the university's fundraising
arm, said he didn't have an estimate of the
evening's price tag because it was part of a full
weekend of events.
However, he added, most of the costs were
underwritten with private contributions.
A fat white program booklet listed the
event's sponsors as ABC Fine Wine and
Spirits, Bacardi USA and Louise H. Courtelis,
volunteer chair for the campaign kickoff.
In addition to donors, some UF faculty
members and alumni were asked to join in the
festivities.
'Tm- shocked to be invited," joked author
Carl Hiaasen, a UF alumnus attending the
event. "I thought there was a mistake when I
got the invitation."
JumboTrons overhead projected the names
of some of the university's biggest givers,
including Bob Graham, the former Florida
governor and senator, and Carolyn Roberts,
chairwoman of the Board of Governors.
But Friday night was about more than hon-
oring past donations.
In an effort to motivate additional gifts
at the event, slick videos highlighting the
university's foundations students, faculty


and research were played to demonstrate
the benefits of giving. Between meal courses,
the JumboTrons showed footage of students,
faculty members, Gators coaches and other
people discussing their dreams for the univer-
sity and the state.
Campaign leaders addressed the crowd,
too, speaking from a small stage at the center
of the arena to emphasize the rising demands
UF faces.
"It takes money a lot of money
-to attract and reward world-
class professors."
Beth McCague
co-chair of the campaign's steering council

"It takes money a lot of money to at-
tract and reward world-class professors," said
Beth McCague, a co-chair of the campaign's
steering council.
UF plans to funnel the money earned
through the campaign toward faculty, re-
search, students and facilities.
The fundraiser will not, however, be pub-
licized as a means to make up for the massive
-budget cuts .UF is facing due to a slump in
state tax revenue.
Instead, Florida Tomorrow is focused on
the university's long-term plans for amplify-
ing its role in the state and asserting itself
nationally as a top research institution.

Former Gator returns for show


By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer

Tony Gay will take the stage at
the O'Connell Center on Monday
night to open for rappers Lil'
Wayne and Fabolous, but he once
hoped to perform under the lights
at The Swamp instead.
Multiple failed drug tests
dashed that dream as Gay, whose
stage moniker is Dred Gator, left
the UF football team before last
season's national championship
run.
"I'm just keeping a cool head
ever since I left playing ball," Gay
said. "I miss it, I can't lie. I miss it
- a lot."
Gay walked onto Urban
Meyer's team in spring 2005 and
took a position on the scout team
in practice, but he was ineligible
to play in games due to academic
problems.
Even if he had raised his
grades, another aspect of Gay's
life kept him out of Meyer's good
graces.


Gay smoked marijuana recre-
ationally while on the team.
He estimated that his name
came up on random drug-test lists
more than 40 times in a little over
a year.
He tested positive on four oc-
casions.
"I'm just keeping a cool
head ever since I left
playing ball."
Tony Gay
former UF football player

But Gay persevered and fought
his way up the running-back
depth chart in spring 2006.
When the regular season came
around last summer, however,
Gay vanished off the roster.
His final test came on the next
to last day of/Summer A in 2006,
a day before he planned to travel
home to Orlando for a break.
Gay failed it and faced an im-
mediate and lengthy suspension.


The day after the test, Gay said,
running-backs coach Stan Drayton
called him up and relayed the
news.
"He said, don't know how
the big guy (Meyer) is going to
take this one,'" Gay said. "We
never really tried (to play) again.
It kind of ended with a question
mark."
Gay gave up on football and
school and started his music ca-
reer, one that he fostered in his
final months on the team as he
pondered his future.
The transition went smoothly.
He grew up idolizing LL Cool
J and performing in front of day-
'care-center crowds.
Now, two nights after the foot-
ball team suffered a crushing blow
in a loss to Auburn, Gay said he
hopes to take advantage of his big-
gest opportunity yet.
"Day in and day out, that's all
he's been doing is in the studio,
writing, constantly writing and
constantly recording," said Gay's
mother, Melanice Copeland.


Speech stresses


science education


By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Contributing Writer

Undergraduate research
should start as early as possible,
a Howard Hughes Medical
Institute official said Friday.
Peter Bruns, the vice presi-
dent of grants and special pro-
grams for the Howard Hughes
Medical Institute, spoke to about
30 people in the University
Auditorium about how institute
grants fund science education.
Last year, UF earned three
grants totaling about $3.2
million, according to a press
release.
During his speech, Bruns
said though the institute has
taken big steps in science educa-
tion, the results have usually re-


mained at the universities where
they were created.
He said the institute should
spread those ideas around the
country through good teaching,
assessment of science education
and encouragement of under-
graduate research.
"Undergraduate research
should be like
voting in Chicago:
On early and often,"
Campus he said.
Chris Needles, a
spokesman for UF's foundation
for development and alumni
affairs, said Bruns' speech was
one of many events that led up
to a Friday dinner. The dinner
kicked off the public phase of
the Florida Tomorrow fundrais-
ing campaign.

UF opens SEC play 0-2


* THE GATORS LOST TO GEOR-
GIA AND TENNESSEE.

By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Writer

As the final seconds of Sunday's
match against Tennessee ticked away,
UF coach Becky Burleigh stood rigidly
on the sideline seemingly awaiting
something positive to take from the
weekend.
But she was clearly at a loss.
Following an underwhelming start
to the season, the No. 15 UF soccer
team viewed the beginning of the
Southeastern Conference schedule as a
chance to start over.
As the Gators (4-4-2, 0-2 SEC)
dropped a 2-1 decision at Georgia on
Friday their first'loss ever to the
Bulldogs and were smacked 2-0 by
the No. 10 Volunteers on Sunday, it
seemed that the more things changed,
the more they stayed the same.
Katie Fraine, who had started every
game this season before Sunday, was
benched in the second half of Friday's


contest after allowing two first-half
goals, and freshman Meghan Berlingo
started against the Volunteers.
"I felt like we played three good
halves out of four this weekend,"
Burleigh said. "Unfortunately our first
half against Georgia was not our best."
The Gators allowed scores in the
first five minutes of both matches,
made more devastat-
ing by the offense's
inability to answer.
UF was shut out




pick up a win for the second consecu-
tive weekend and forcing Burleigh to
wait for her 300th career victory for at
least another week, the Gators haven't.
lost confidence, despite the building
frustration.
"It will come together at some
point," Burleigh said.
A television broadcast contributed to
this report.


Freshman Haden: 'You just

don't believe the game is over'


ATMOSPHERE, from page 1
like their life is almost over," freshman cor-
nerback Joe Haden said. "I've never experi-
enced anything like this. It hurts so bad.
"You just don't believe the game is over.
You just think the offense is going to kick
it off to you and the offense is going to go
down and score. You just can't believe the
game is over until you see them run onto
the field."
Chas Henry, who shanked a 25-yard
punt late. in the fourth quarter, threw his
towel to the ground and banged his helmet
on a nearby trunk.
Arms waved like wet spaghetti noodles
as Byrum attempted his kick, but unlike
last year, Jarvis Moss wasn't around to he-
roically save the Gators from a last-second
field goal.
And for the first time since 1992, UF was
shut out in the first half.


The offense finally showed inconsistency
after an overwhelming start to the season.
"We didn't necessarily play smart, didn't
play well," Meyer said. "We're supposed to
be a pretty good offense, and we couldn't
get the defense off the field. I don't feel like.
we blocked them all day. I think any time
we got singled up with our
corners, they kind of picked
us apart-throwing those out
cuts."
FWOotall After the game, a young
boy outside the stadium sol-
emnly shredded pieces from his orange and
blue shaker.
But considering the Gators have only lost
to one school in the past 21 games, they are a
long way from giving up.
They rallied following a loss to Auburn
last year, and they can do it again.
"[We'll] learn from this loss," senior
strong safety Tony Joiner said. "The season's
not over yet."

Gators rally from two-touchdown deficit before Tigers put game away


FOOTBALL, from page 19


filled Saturday, as the Gators may have
fallen into a look-ahead trap.
A possible No. 2 vs. No. 3 showdown
loomed with LSU this week if UF had


held up its end of the bargain.
"Our family took a frontal blow, and we'll
see how they come through it," Meyer said.
The game-winning kick came after the
two teams exchanged fruitless drives with
the game tied at 17-17 late in the fourth
quarter.


Auburn got the ball back
with less than four minutes
remaining and drove 35 yards
Football to set up Byrum's kick.
Football UF's admirable comeback
from a 17-3 deficit gained
steam slowly throughout the second half.


The Gators embarked on an 89-yard
march early in the fourth quarter to tie it
up.
But it wasn't enough.
"We've got to get better starting (Sunday)
and get back to the drawing board," Tebow
said.


Season-ending surgery likely for Rainey


OUT LOUD, from page 19

able and encouraged in such a case.)
If the Gators really are worthy of a
national championship berth, they'll
bounce back and defeat LSU on the
road next week. I don't see it happen-
ing, but great teams persevere.
And if they do knock off LSU, they'll
essentially be in the same position they
were in prior to losing to Auburn.
They'll soar up the rankings and gain
lots of respect from the pollsters.
In fact, UF would be much better off
in the long run losing to Auburn and
defeating LSU than vice versa. Who
knows, maybe the Auburn loss will
act as a wake-up call for the Gators,
propelling them to victory against LSU
in a game they would have otherwise
lost.
But now let's consider the more
likely scenario of UF losing to LSU.


Even in that case, the Gators still
have a whole lot to play for.
Auburn and LSU are both in the
SEC West, and even with losses to
both, UF can probably still make it to
the SEC Championship Game by run-
ning the table in the East. What more
can you really ask for, Gators fan?
The only scenario in which UF
could run the table in the East and
not clinch an SEC title game berth
would be if Kentucky doesn't compile
a single conference loss other than to
the Gators.
With a trip to South Carolina loom-
ing this weekend and their own show-
down with LSU in Lexington the week
after, I'd say the odds aren't very favor-
able for the Wildcats.
So hold off on declaring this the
official start of basketball season,
huddle up around your television sets
Saturday, and for God's sake, cheer up,
Gators fan.
There is still a long way to go.


FOLLOW-UP, from page 19

and The Associated Press poll, respectively.
A total of nine teams from the top-25
lost this weekend. Five of those teams were
ranked in the top 10.
"I think on any given Saturday you have
to tee it up," Meyer said. "It just tells you how
hard it is to go unblemished throughout the
season. I think that happens every year."
Meyer said freshman Chris Rainey will
probably need surgery, and he likely won't
play for the rest of the season. The running
back, who was only dressed in his jersey and
sat on the sideline Saturday, has had an un-
stable shoulder since he arrived at UF, Meyer
said.
While the Gators may have lost a running
back, they did gain back a key offensive com-
ponent.
Andre Caldwell started against Auburn,
marking his return to the field for the first
time since spraining his knee Sept. 8.
Caldwell was used sparingly during the
first half, but Meyer was cautious with his se-


nior captain still not at 100 percenit- and
didn't want to risk Caldwell pulling a ham-
string late in the game.
"He wanted to play in the worst way,"
Meyer said. "But that's the reason why he
didn't get the ball in the second half."
As the Gators start preparing for their road
trip to LSU this week, the squad must reshape
its running game.
Quarterback Tim
Tebow again racked up
a high number of car-
ries, which Meyer said he
was concerned about last
week after the sophomore
rushed 27 times against
Rainey Mississippi.
'"I know there's guys
making plays," Meyer said. "I think we're
relying too much on Tim to run the football,
again."
Running back Kestahn Moore only con-
tributed three rushes for seven yards his
lowest numbers of the season and Meyer
said he wants to see Moore participate more.
"We'd like to block people better so we can
do that," Meyer said.

Tigers hand Meyer first home loss


* A LAST-SECOND FIELD GOAL
SUNK THE GATORS.

By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
nzaccardi@alligator.org

No, it wasn't a recurring nightmare or a
deji vu flashback to last season that made
fans wake up in a cold sweat gasping for
air.
It really happened.
Auburn. Again.
And for anyone who doubted it when
they woke up from a sleepless Saturday
night, it was right there on the front page
of ESPN.com until dawn.
Auburn's Antoine Carter doing the
Gator chomp with the headline "No.
1 is safe" summarized the unruly day.
in college football that culminated in
Gainesville.
For the second straight year, the Tigers
blemished UF's otherwise squeaky-clean
record.
With time expiring, Wes Byrum's 43-
yard field goal sealed a 20-17 upset as
Auburn staved off a gritty Gators come-
back in The Swamp on Saturday night.
"It doesn't get any better than that,"
said Byrum, who added that taunts from
UF fans during the game gave him extra
motivation. "That's a dream situation to be
in with three seconds left."
The loss snapped an 18-game home
winning streak for UF and was Coach
Urban Meyer's first loss in Gainesville.
"I'm sick to my stomach," Meyer said.
"Not sick to my stomach for the effort but
sick to my stomach because when you
lose, it sucks."
Byrum, a true freshman, actually made
the kick twice. After splitting the uprights
on his first attempt, Auburn's players ran
onto the field to celebrate the apparent
win.
Too bad UF had called a timeout before
the play.
So he calmly kicked it again this time

making it by a slimmer margin and ran
around the field doing a Gator chomp.
"It's hard to even put into words," UF
quarterback Tim Tebow said.

Last season when UF lost to Auburn,
Coach Urban Meyer saw the Gators rally
together and push through the rest of the
season with a sharper focus.


He's still waiting to see how his team will
handle this year's defeat.
"The soul of a man is
exposed when you get hit
in the face," Meyer said in
Football a teleconference Sunday
morning. "It isn't exposed
when you pick up the crystal ball and put


on the ring. Alot of people can do that. How
are we going to respond? I don't have that
answer. I feel like there's a lot of character
on this team."
UF dropped from No. 3 and No. 4 to No.
7 and No. 9 in the USA Today coaches' poll

First defeat

not reason to


panic just yet

ut the bottle down, Gators fan,
and let your friends off their 24-
hour suicide watch.
Don't bum your UF T-shirts or rip
up your season tickets.
What happened in the Swamp on
Saturday was shocking and down-
right embarrassing, but it was far
from crippling.
Sure, the loss hurts UF's national
championship hopes. But deep down,
Gators fan, did you really take this for
a national championship team?
Surely, even
the most biased
and arrogant UF
Sans had some
slight reserva-
tions about the
squad, consider-
Bryan Jones ing all the fresh
Bryan Out Loud faces in the start-
bjones@alligator.org ing lineup.
But even with
the loss to Auburn, the Gators' aspi-
rations for a Southeastern Conference
title are still very much alive, and a
national championship is not beyond
reason, either. -.
In the suddenly parity-riddled
landscape of college football, it's
difficult to believe there will be two
undefeated teams at the end of the
season. There are only a handful
of unbeaten teams remaining that
would garner any consideration for
a national title.
Two of them, LSU and Kentucky,
are UF's next two opponents. USC
and California have to play each oth-
er, as do Wisconsin and Ohio State.
Boston College has a chance to run"
the table because it's in the less-than-
impressive Atlantic Coast Conference,
but even that's a long shot.
Purdue, Cincinnati, South Florida
and Hawaii are still undefeated, but
those schools would be two-touch-
down underdogs against any of the
aforementioned teams and will not
get in over a strong one-loss team.
(On a side note, I am advocating
that a lifetime ban on free speech be
imposed upon anyone who declares
that South Florida is the best team in
the state. The use of force is accept-
