Kevorkian's speech postponed until Jan.
* THE DOCTOR WAS ORIGINALLY
SCHEDULED TO SPEAK OCT. 11.
By DEVIN CULCLASURE
UF President Bernie Machen has decided
Monday to postpone Dr. Jack Kevorkian's on-
campus appearance, largely due to concerns
stemming from the Sept. 17 Tasering of UF
student Andrew Meyer.
Kevorkian, a controversial doctor who has
assisted in patients' suicides, was originally
scheduled to speak Oct. 11, but he will instead
appear Jan. 15 at the O'Connell Center.
In an e-mail to UF students, faculty and
staff, Machen said he met with representa-
tives from the University Police Department,
Student Government, Student Affairs and
Accent SG's speakers bureau and de-
cided more time is needed
to assess UF's security and
"While we all would
like to see these matters
resolved sooner rather than
later, I believe we should
Kevorklan allow adequate time to
make any policy or proto-
col changes needed to ensure a safe-and civil
environment for full, free, diverse and lively
discourse," Machen wrote in his e-mail.
Janine Sikes, a UF spokeswoman, said the
administration didn't feel comfortable holding
the event because it has yet to hear the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement's indepen-
dent review of UPD's actions.
Another reason for pushing the speech
back is that UF has not announced who will

UF students cart keep jump-
ing, jogging and judo-kicking
next semester, but it might not
count for class credit.
In light of recent budget cuts,
UF will offer fewer sections of
sports and fitness classes to allo-
cate more money to courses that
are mandatory for degree tracks.
Steve Dorman, dean of UF's
College of Health and Human
Performance, said course down-
sizing was proposed about a year
ago to make the college more ef-
ficient, and the recent budget cuts
made the idea more appealing.
UF plans to cut about $34 mil-
lion campuswide from its budget
Dorman said classes like
aerobics, jogging and swimming,
which are mostly electives, use
funds that could be channeled to-
ward more popular courses, like
anatomy and physiology.
For now, he said, only the
number of course sections would
be reduced, but the college will
look into cutting those classes
"Every semester, we're
packed out in those

their degrees, he said.

Market researchers from UF

building a strong team identity
is the goal for sports marketers.
The research aims to prove
how important it is for market-

UF center opens near Fla. coast
By LIA GANOSELLIS
Alligator Contributing Writer
UF's newest research institute is located about 80
miles away from campus on the southern outskirts of
St. Augustine in the town of Marineland.
During the Whitney Laboratory for Marine
Bioscience's open house Saturday, lab tours and
touch tanks were featured.
Peter Anderson, director of the institute, said there
was a great turnout for the event, which he specified
was not for fundraising but simply to increase aware-
ness of the lab in the community.
Researchers at the Whitney Lab study marine life
for human medical advances, Anderson said.
The open house emphasized the lab's newly built
Center for Marine Studies, which was completed last
The rest of the lab's facilities date back to 1974.
Stacey Marsh, director of development for the
institute, said the new building was a much-needed
addition to the lab.
"With it comes the capacity to do everything we
dreamed of doing," she said.
The open house gave visitors the opportunity to
see various kinds of marine life up close and per-
sonal, including horseshoe crabs and spiny lobsters.
Touch tanks were also popular.
Anderson, who studies jellyfish, said most people
don't understand how studying aquatic animals can
help humans because they think they're so physically
"They're actually not," he said. "That's the amaz-
Anderson added that humans and jellyfish have
nearly identical nervous systems.
State Marsh said the open house was a
News good opportunity for the public to see
what goes on inside the lab.
"What the lab does is not easily un-
derstood," she said. "People think we're taking care
of the dolphins, and we don't have anything to with
it. We're a UF lab."
The lab had to put its annual open house event
on hold for three years because of construction that
limited parking, Anderson said.
Even with additional parking, there were hardly
enough spaces to accommodate visitors eager to see
what was behind the Whitney Lab's walls.
Although the Whitney Lab is well-known in sci-
entific circles, Marsh said, a lot of people outside the
St. Augustine area don't even know it exists.

Get extra amenities when
UF can afford them
Ah, a gentle breeze, the toll of the bells of Century Tower
and stacks of handbills shoved down your throat.
It's that time of year again. Yes, the Student
Government election begins today. If you're one of the 100 or so
people who can hardly contain their excitement and were first
in line at the polls at 8 a.m., well, this editorial probably comes
But if you haven't voted, go get in line and read this during
your short wait.
Yesterday we wrote about voting for the best candidates in-
stead of blindly voting for a party. If you missed it Monday, you
can still check it out online.
Today we bring you our opinions on the two ballot refer-
enda. Of course, even if one or both passes, that doesn't mean
anything will happen with either of them.
But we don't think either should pass.
One referendum asks if UF should provide funds for a stu-
dent-run homeless shelter. We aren't saying Gainesville doesn't
need more homeless shelters. But the city is hard at work on
this issue already. And frankly, UF does not have the funds for
The referendum's supporters say giving students a place to
gain experience is another reason for the shelter. Here's a news
flash: Nothing is stopping you from volunteering at one of the
shelters around town.
As for the student-run cafe, it's a good idea in theory. Maybe
one day when UF has surplus funding, it will become a reality.
But once again, UF doesn't have the money to commit to the
start-up costs of a dining facility. Why do you think all these
chain stores have invaded our campus? It's cheaper. That
doesn't mean they're better hell, most of us enjoy our meals
from non-chain restaurants near campus, and some of us even
make it a point to.
It's unfortunate that money is always such a huge factor
in what are sometimes good ideas. But we think it's more im-
portant to fund our educations at this university than to fund

cause many students have al-

Ever since the infamous
Tasering at Sen. John Kerry's
forum, everyone seems to be
on edge. But the key differ-
ence between the Kevorkian
speech and Kerry's is that
Kevorkian's is not set up as a
forum, and no question-and-

three months to allow the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement more time to
conduct its investigation of

like quite a long time.

Lately there's been quite a. bit of coverage on mistakes
made in the college-football world.
Oklahoma State University head football coach Mike
Gundy has received attention for his rant last week. After
one of his quarterbacks was ripped apart by a sports col-
umnist for The Oklahoman, he yelled at the columnist for
making false claims about the young man.
How could the media attack a 21-year-old student for
his performance, or lack thereof? The woman who wrote
the article was never an NCAA quarterback, so how
could she comment on how he plays?
She doesn't know what it's like to perform while
wearing pads and a helmet with the entire team and
thousands of fans hanging onto your every throw.
How could the rest of the media then blame Gundy for
his YouTube-worthy reaction? He yelled and screamed at
the woman for defaming a 21-year-old who, in his eyes,
isn't yet mature enough to handle extreme negativity
from a reporter.
At the news conference, Mike Gundy claimed not to
read the newspaper. Should somebody who doesn't read
critique a journalist?
If -he's never been under the pressure of deadlines
while suffering from writer's block, he can't tell her how
to do her job.

speak about their decisions.

Think about what happened last week at the Gundy
news conference, and hopefully you'll think twice about
speaking poorly of the Gators.
I'm sure when Gundy woke up the morning of the
press conference, he didn't expect to be the laughing-
stock of the Internet, just as our kicker didn't wake up on
Saturday expecting to miss a field goal.
If you still think the students who stepped onto that
field deserve, to be ridiculed for their performances, I'd
like to invite you to try out for the football team next
year. I'm sure the defensive line would be more than
happy to show you how difficult its job truly is.
This week, just relax and let Meyer and the Gators do
their jobs. If you think Meyer didn't rip the whole team
apart after the game, look up his speech after last year's
loss to Auburn. Then look up what the Gators did the rest
of the season.

Letters to the Editor
'Twelfth man' makes a difference
I'm writing to wake up the stu-
dents who go to football games here
at UF. Our crowd on Saturday was
embarrassing. You might say, "But
we were so loud, what are you talk-
ing about?" I would ask you, how
loud were you in the first half?
If you were like my friends and
me, who were the only people in
our section yelling while the Gators
were on defense in the first half,
then this letter isn't for you.
But for all of you in my section
and others who sat on their hands
during the entire first half when our
team needed a push, you should be
ashamed of yourselves.
The Swamp needs to be loud all
the time, not just when you feel like
it. If you're, going to the games as a
social event and don't care as much
as those of us who bleed orange and
blue, then give or sell your ticket to

UF medical duo rebuilds faces with prosthetics
By JENNIFER BINGAMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer
Josh Ghogan was shot in the right eye
while rabbit hunting about 20 years ago.
He went to his local Veterans Affairs
hospital in Tennessee to get an artificial
replacement, but he hasn't replaced it
Artificial eyes should be replaced ev-
ery five years, said Robert Mann, a medi-
cal artist with UF's College of Dentistry.
Ghogan is one of many who solicit the
artistic and medical expertise of Mann
and his partner, Dr. Glenn Turner, director
of UF's department of prosthodontics.
The duo creates facial prosthetics for
about 80 patients a year.
Ghogan's new eye was long overdue,
The 80-year-old veteran spent about
two days in Mann's office as his eye was
fashioned and placed in its socket.
At the end of the second day, Ghogan
walked out with a brand-new eye.
Most of Mann and Turner's patients
are elderly people who have lost a nose
or an eye during surgery for an illness.
While Mann works, his patients look
into the mirrors on the wall, making sure
every stroke of acrylic paint is just right.
"We get their reaction to the shape and
color as we build them," Mann said.
One recent example of the benefits
of Mann and Turner's services was the
Jorden Flowers, the 5-year-old son
of Olympic bobsled champion Vonetta
Flowers, had two ears created by Mann
at the beginning of September.

The ears, which were molded to
match his mother's, were the last step in
Jorden's journey from silence to sound.
Jorden was born with bilateral mi-
crotia, a condition that left him without
After undergoing surgery in Italy
about two years ago and receiving new
ears from Mann, Jorden can hear.
Shortly after receiving his new ears,
Mann said, Jorden went to Chuck E.
Cheese's for his birthday.

She said the administration came to a mutu-

UF will pay a $7,500 "inconvenience fee" with
private money from the UF Foundation.
The administration has not considered de-

Steven Blank, Accent chairman, said the
decision was out of his hands, but he said he
agreed with Machen's assessment.

Gators fail to spread ball on offense
By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
The Tim Tebow arid Percy Harvin
Show may be going an act too long.
While Harvin and Tebow are filling up
the stat sheet lately, UF has not spread the
ball around like it did during the first few
weeks of the season.
Running back Kestahn Moore had just
three carries for 7 yards in Saturday's 20-
17 loss against Auburn.
Tight end Cornelius Ingram who
was the Gators' second-leading receiver
against the Tigers had just 37 yards.
UF's usually powerful offense was
"They haven't been giving a lot
of deep balls like we had earlier
in the year. Teams are just doing
a great job against us, getting
around the other weapons we've
got on offense and limiting us to
UF wide receiver
"They've been taking away a lot of our
weapons," said receiver Andre Caldwell,
who should be back this week after a
right knee sprain. "They haven't been
giving a lot of deep balls like we had
earlier in the year. Teams are just doing
a great job against us, getting around the
other weapons we've got on offense and
limiting us to-two players."
The Gators scored a season-low 17
points Saturday. Even in the win against
Mississippi the week prior, nobody ex-
cept Harvin had more than two catches.
UF put up 30 points against the Rebels,
but the Gators still value the importance
of spreading the ball around.
On Monday, UF coach Urban Meyer
said he wants to get the ball into Moore's
hands more often. Besides Tebow and
Harvin, only Moore and Jarred Fayson
had any rushing attempts Saturday, and
even they only had five attempts com-
-I -, 'm r- -AmEmm
Meanwhile, Tebow has carried the ball
46 times the past two games;

Andre Caldwell is back, and
so is his swagger.
"This is my time, also
my team's time to show the
world," he said.
Caldwell, UF's standout se-
nior wide receiver, played spar-
ingly last week against Auburn
due to a sprained MCL.
But he won't be kept off the
field Saturday when the No. 9
Gators (4-1, 2-1 Southeastern
Conference) face freshly minted
No. 1 LSU (5-0, 3-0 SEC).
Caldwell deemed himself 90
percent healthy after Monday
He said he would be back
to full strength by the end of
ten in stone,"
'"It's a done deal.
Football I wouldn't let
them sit me out
this game. I'm going regard-
less. This is one of those games,
whatever is wrong with you,
you're going to get over it."
Caldwell caught four passes
for 111 yards in the first two
He then sat out wins against
Tennessee and Ole Miss, but
surprisingly caught passes in
warm-ups and started against

SEE NOTES, PAGE 16
t the rate things are going, I've
come to the conclusion that
South Florida has the potential
to become UF's next Florida State.
The Gators won't meet the Bulls until
2010, but, by that time, USF could sur-
pass FSU as UF's best in-state rival.
It's time to face the facts: USF is hot
and FSU is not.
The Bulls are currently the No. 6 team
in the nation a bit premature if you
ask me but their success is not a flash
in the pan, either.
Two years ago they beat No. 9
Louisville in their
m ."- ~Big East debut.
S.f Last season they
Upset No. 7 West
Virginia. This year
racked up two
Jenna Marina big wins against
Floor Jenna-ral Auburn and the
Not too shabby
for a program that started just 11 years
The Bulls have continuously climbed
the polls since this season started, and
Meanwhile, the Seminoles haven't
been ranked since the preseason, as they
dropped their opener to Clemson.
In 2004 and 2005, FSU managed eight-
win seasons. The Seminoles needed a
victory in the Emerald Bowl last year
just to secure a 7-6 season turning in
Bobby Bowden's worst record since he
jumped in his Model T and headed for
Bowden may be the man who put
FSU on the map, but he's pretty much
overstayed his welcome, and, as a result,
the team has lost its luster.
If USF continues on its road to pros-
perity and FSU continues on its slope
of mediocrity, I wouldn't be surprised
if recruits started seriously considering
green and gold instead of garnet and
USF's latest win against West Virginia
was huge for the program and gives
Bulls coach Jim Leavitt some leverage
Right now, only nine members of

Whitney Myers couldn't keep up her whirl-
But with her fellow Gators staying low, it re-
ally didn't matter.
Led Monday by freshman Jessica Yadloczky's
even-par 72, UF's fifth-ranked women's
golf squad finished second to Southeastern
Conference foe, Alabama at the Wildcat Fall
Invitational in Lexington, Ky.
"We had some really good play and we had
some hiccups," UF coach Jill Briles-Hinton said.
"It was a growing experience."
The Gators entered the final round only five
strokes behind the Crimson Tide but slipped
Monday, finishing eleven shots behind.
A spate of double bogeys down the stretch
from seniors Myers, Tiffany Chudy and Eleanor
Tucker was particularly pain-
them to the stress of contend-
ing for a rifle.
"They've got to learn how
to control themselves in that
situation," she said, empha-
Brles-Hnton sizing the importance of pa-
Briles-Hinton tience on the back nine. "They
had too much time to think about it."
But there were positives. Their 10-over 298 on
Monday lengthens their streak of sub-300 rounds
And the Gators were honing their touch.
"[Myers] got a great deal of education," Briles-
Myers, who began Monday as the tourna-
ment's individual leader at seven under and tied
the UF record with a 67 on Sunday, carded just
two birdies on an eight-over 80 pockmarked by
three double bogeys en route to fifth place.
The other Gators picked up the slack-nicely.
Yadloczky recorded three birdies and three
bogeys for her third par-or-better round in six
collegiate tries, and wound up tied for sixth at
six over for the Invitational, her first collegiate
Junior Ornella Jouven and Chudy both fired
two-over 74s and netted ties for eighth and 11th
place, respectively, at seven and nine over.
Tucker shot the best round of her rough tour-
nament Monday with a 78 that tied her for 48th at
twenty-three over overall.
Junior Brittany Nelson, competing as an indi-
vidual, turned in a one-over 73 that lifted her to
a tie for 23rd.

went to our safety net, which was

help in this matter with Caldwell back.

the country, and the system seems to be working for Leavitt.
Throw in some decent out-of-state recruits looking to play
for a respectable program while catching some sunshine,
and you've got yourself another top contender.
Look, I know there's a lot of history to the UF-FSU rivalry,
and I concede that it will never completely disappear.
But in my past three years at UF, the Gators have failed to
lose to the Seminoles. As the Gators continue to secure highly

"I told Coach (Urban Meyer) I thought I was
good enough to go," Caldwell said. "But he was
looking out for my future."
Caldwell's return should give a stagnant of-
fense more versatility.
He provides a third option to complement Tim
Tebow and Percy Harvin, the only players who are
consistently receiving touches.
"It helps because he's such a threat over there
and the trickle-down effect [benefits other receiv-

Caldwell broke his leg in 2005 against
Tennessee, forcing him to miss the final nine games
of his junior year and take a medical redshirt.
But missing two games this year his final
year provided much more pain.
"I've only got a couple more games at UF,"
Caldwell said. "So this hurt a little more than the
first time, when I had a couple more years left."
TRAUTWEIN OUT FOR SEASON: Meyer confirmed
the inevitable Monday, announcing that senior
offensive tackle Phil Trautwein would miss the
rest of the season with a stress fracture in his right
Trautwein, a preseason All-SEC second-team
selection, can apply for a medical redshirt to come

they'll get spread around equally."
But at the very least, if you're going
to have one main option, it's good to
have someone like Harvin.
"A lot of people misunderstand
what's really going on," Ingram said.
"The reason why Percy is getting the
ball out there on the screen play is be-

The same goes for UF when it plays Florida's other "pow-
The Gators signed a two-year deal to play the Hurricanes
beginning in 2008, which at the time stirred up some excite-

They've continued a steady decline since their 2001 na-
tional championship season and have fallen from the AP Top
25 in 2006 for the first time in 10 seasons.
In a couple years, it's not going to be the Gator chomp

Get ready, UF fans. The Gators are going to be grabbing
the Bulls by the horns.
