Dahlem was hit by a fast-mov-

Turner said the

Highway Patrol report released
earlier in the year.
He had a blood alcohol level of
.270, according to the report. The

While witnesses in the report
said the pickup's lights were on
and the area was lit, the truck's
speed has been debated.
One witness said the truck was
moving at 70 mph, while another
estimated the speed at 40 mph.

Towing company may
drop Joiner's charges
By KORI FREDERICK
As UF's football team prepares
to face Louisiana State University
on Saturday, some are worried Tony
Joiner may not play in the game.
UF coach Urban Meyer said Joiner,
who was arrested and charged with
burglary early Tuesday morning, will
not play if the felony charges are not
dropped or reduced.
Joiner was arrested for attempting
to retrieve his girlfriend's car from
Watson's Towing, where it was be-
ing held for $76, according to a police
Meyer said Joiner also lost his sta-
tus as a team captain, but he will not be
replaced because there are not many
seniors on the team.
However, the incident early
Tuesday morning is affecting more
than the UF football team. It has
spurred debate between Stan Forron,
the property manager of the lot, and
the Gainesville Police Department.
Forron has said he did not want to
press charges against Joiner.
However, GPD spokesman Lt.
Keith Kameg said Forron could have
filled out a complaint withdrawal form
any time during the incident if he did
not want to press charges.
"If they didn't want us to press
charges, we should have been told. We
can't read minds," Kameg said.
Forron said he would ask the State
Attorney's Office to not press charges
Kameg said Forron can take care of
the issue by going to the State Attorney,
but he did not know if Forron had
been in touch with the State Attorney's
The charges have already been
filed, and law enforcement does not
drop charges, Kameg said. GPD is no
longer pursuing the case, and it is now
up to the State Attorney's Office to con-
tinue with the charges, he said.
Forron said he arrived at Watson's
at 3 or 3:30 a.m. After the car was
towed, he made arrangements with
....... ., Joiner to come pick
up the car and then
left the shop.
The employee at
i the gate was in the
break room when
Joiner showed up to
claim the car, which
Joiner is when Joiner at-
tempted to retrieve
the car himself, Forron said.
Forron said the driver who called
GPD to report Joiner is someone who
is a "physically smaller, nervous guy."
"I definitely think my guy over-
reacted," Forron said. "But I would
rather see my drivers err on the side of
being overly cautious than not."
Forron blames the entire incident
on a series of miscommunications and
a combination of misunderstandings.
The towing company has been paid,
and he said that is what he cares about
the most. He said it has been blown
way out of proportion because of
Joiner's football status. "

Steam sets off fire

* THE STEAM LEAKED FROM
WATER IN A BOILER ROOM.
By ILEANA MORALES
Steam leaking from hot water
in a boiler room set off smoke
alarms at the Constans Theatre
around 11:45 p.m. Wednesday,

UF's Physical Plant Division.

"I don't think it was a big leak

lets out steam from the boiler had
shut down. This built up pres-

New campus hospital will be powered by natural gas
By ILEANA MORALES
Underneath two white tents, Gainesville
Regional Utilities and Shands at UF represen-
tatives stood on the gravel of the GRU South
Energy Center's construction site Thursday.
It will be the first campus hospital and
energy center powered by natural gas east of
the Mississippi River, according to a UF press.
The center will provide utility services for
Shands at UF Cancer Hospital as well as the
south campus of Shands.
This would allow for the hospital to con-
tinue operating during emergencies where
there could be energy deficiencies, said Chuck
Heidt, GRU project manager.
"If the entire community is in a blackout,
the center will still have power," Heidt said.
Under a 50-year contract with Shands,
GRU will own and operate the center. GRU
will also occupy the land under a 99-year
lease, Heidt said.
The ceremony began at the construction
site south of Archer Road.
Green shovels bordered the tents to rep-
resent the "broad energy saving plan," said
Karen Johnson, GRU general manager, in a
speech at the ceremony.
Heidt said construction began a month

feet, Heidt said.

Ed Regan, GRU strategic planning direc-
tor, said powering the center with natural gas

Gator slapped with $10 fine

Alligator Writer -
Though the Gator Party nearly swept the fall
Student Government election, it's still facing the
consequences of several complaints filed by the
Sarah Krantz, supervisor of elections, said
the Elections Commission fined the Gator Party
$10 on Thursday for violating rules in Hume
Sam Miorelli, Progress Party chief counsel,
said he filed the complaint Monday after learn-

under several doors on the first floor of Hume
West around 3 p.m. Sept. 27.
"The Gator Party and their incumbents,
they're the people who wrote the rules,"
Miorelli said. "One would assume that it's

Miorelli said he presumed the Gator Party's
Hume candidate, Mike Fetto, or a party sup-
porter committed the violation.
Krantz said the commission did not put any
blame on Fetto.
Fetto, who lost that seat to Progress Party
candidate Ben Cavataro, was also fined $5 at an
Elections Commission hearing Sunday for put-
ting up a sign that read "Vote Mike Fetto, Hume
area senator, or don't vote at all," Krantz said.
The sign wasn't marked as a paid political
ad, which violated elections rules.
Miorelli said he has five other complaints
against the Gator Party for various infractions.
Those will be heard Sunday or Monday, he

Thursday. Krantz said the Gator Party request-

Block seating available
By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Gator Growl is teaming up with
the University Athletic Association to
make it easier for students to sit with
their friends at this year's pep rally.
Student organizations will be able
to sit in the same blocks already ar-
ranged for football season, said Aron
Weingard, Gator Growl producer.
In previous years, student organi-
zations had to collect money and a list
of UF ID numbers before the rally to
sit in blocks.
"There was a significant burden on
organizations," Weingard said. "Now,
a group doesn't have to round every-
body up and collect money. It's just
made it so much easier because of the
However, students who want to sit
in a block must purchase their tickets
and have them scanned into the block
Students who don't have a foot-
ball block but want to sit in one can
still make that arrangement at UAA
ticket offices at Gates 1 and 13 of the
stadium, he added.
Ticket pickup will run from
8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through
Friday, Oct. 9 through Oct. 19 for block
seating and through Nov. 2 for general
seating. Tickets may be
On picked up at Gate 13 of
Campus the stadium.
Gator Growl will
take place Nov. 2 at Ben Hill Griffin
The rally will feature comedian
Frank Caliendo and rock band Lynyrd
Weingard said Gator Growl started
looking into the block-seating issue
after the 2006 rally and decided to
partner with UAA in January.
The partnership has also helped
prevent long lines, he added, since
UAA has more ticket windows than
the University Box Office.

This week has proven to us that it's a wild, wild world.
Student Government elections always seem a little animalis-
tic shark-like Senate candidates preying on unsuspecting
students, poll workers who seemed as slow as snails, plenty
of revelers at the Orange & Brew who had a whale of a time.
After all, we're animals, too. So hear us roar in this week's
Darts & Laurels
First up, we've got a someone's-a-hypocritical-hippo-
potamus DART for UF President Bernie Machen and his
Florida Tomorrow campaign. The fundraising kickoff was
hosted at the O'Connell Center. The event featured campy,
Space Mountain-esque decorations and was sponsored by
ABC Fine Wine and Spirits and Bacardi USA. But when
Rascal Flatts came to UF in 2005, its tour sponsor, Coors
Light, was banned from advertising in the O'Connell
Center, in programs and even on ticket stubs.
We know what alcohol is. We see ads for it on televi-
sion. We see billboards for it on the street. A lot of us see
it when we open our fridges. We can even buy it on cam-
pus. Bernie has said he wants to limit student exposure to
alcohol. That's fine. But don't turn around and use big-
name companies as sponsors for your UF fundraiser if you
won't let others.
We hand a float-like-a-butterfly-sting-like-a-bee
LAUREL to student Sen. Lindsey Johns, who is also
chairwoman of the Senate Rules and Ethics Committee,
for kicking out four senators at Tuesday's senate meeting.
Johns is one senator who takes her job seriously, and we
applaud her for that. So be warned, incoming senators:
This is not just a line for your rnsum6. You must do your
job or you'll lose it.
Up next, we have a his-bark-is-worse-than-his-bite
DART to Machen & Co. for moving Dr. Jack Kevorkian's
speech to January. Bernie says this is because the inves-
tigation into "Tasergate" hasn't been completed, but we
can't help but think this is because of all the controversy
surrounding the speech. A repeat of the Sen. John Kerry
forum is not too likely, especially since Kevorkian's speech
will not have a question-and-answer session like Kerry's.
Here's a we-don't-need-to-come-up-with-an-animal-
cliche-because-you're-already-one LAUREL to the Gator
Party. Even though we secretly (or not) didn't want you
to win, we've gotta hand it to you: You guys know how
to run a campaign. You covered the campus with people,
handbills and stickers. You made sure as many people as
possible knew you were running. And look at that it
worked. Good job, but don't let it get to your head. Now
comes the real fun.
We couldn't have the all-animal edition without giving
uar LAUREL to the SFCC Teaching Zoo's newest edition,
an ocelot named Emma. After oohing and aahing over
pictures of ocelots on the Internet for 10 minutes, we're
ready to head over to see the cat, along with the other 74
species at the zoo.
Finally, we have an awkward-sea-turtle LAUREL for
the Undie Dash and its participants. This event encourag-
es students to take it almost-all-off for charity. Of course,
while standing around in your skivvies with hundreds of
other students of every shape and size with you can be a
little uncomfortable, the feeling of embarrassment quickly
melts away. The Undie Dash is a great example of good,
clean college fun with a cause. And come on we're
young and hot. We'll use any excuse to take our clothes

Task force not representative of students
Well folks, it looks like Student Body
President Ryan Moseley's Student
Government administration is on track
to let us down again. I am writing about
the task force that will review UF's event
management and the University Police
The student members for the task force
appear to be nothing more than yes-men.
The Moseley administration has continu-
ally said the average student, not SG, would
control the direction of the task force. Yet
somehow at least three of the four student
members are SG politicos. So much for fair
and equal representation.
What about on-campus students having a
voice? Any committee that has the ability to
change UPD's policy should include student
housing's interest. About 7,600 students live
on campus, and UPD is responsible for their
safety after classes end and the crowds leave
- yet not a single student member of the
task force lives on campus.
The-list of failures goes on. The admin-

Turlington Plaza. In high school, I was heav-
ily involved with student government, but
I never attacked unwilling participants as
they walked to class.
The past few days, I took several detours
to avoid representatives as they tried to tell
me why I should vote. I did not vote, which
may seem ignorant, but I was annoyed at the
representatives for coming up to me every-
where I went.
I have a few suggestions for the parties
running next year so we can walk to class
in peace. One way is to offer free food. With
free food, plenty of people will talk to you
about your election.
Another suggestion is to have assemblies
or debates that are advertised, so people
who are interested can go by choice. Lastly,
cut down on pursuing students as we walk
I feel guilty when I don't listen to you, so
I try to avoid you. If you see people avoiding
you, don't go after them.
Fall election turnout one of the highest
The Alligator really downplayed this
fall's SG election turnout. Considering the
horrible weather, lack of real competition
and limited campaigning, it was impressive
to see this election garner one of the highest
turnouts in fall campaign history.
In fact, this year's turnout set a record for
normal fall election turnout. Last year's fall
election saw higher numbers only because
of a vice-president replacement race.
While it is true that only a minority of
students took part in elections, we should
applaud Supervisor of Elections Sarah
Krantz for her efforts this fall.
SG isn't perfect, but this fall's turnout is
an indication that at least we are heading in
the right direction in helping to get students
involved and interested in the happenings

laugh that could be heard down the
"He always kind of brightened
everybody's day," said Larry Price,
who worked closely with Bomstad.
"He was a great guy."
Bomstad, a 31-year-old UF phys-
ics teaching assistant and graduate
student, died Sept. 21.
Sgt. Keith Faulk, spokesman
for the Alachua County Sheriff's
Office, said the death was probably
a suicide, but it's still under inves-

guy," said Henrietta Shuminsky,
Bomstad's mother. "I'm so proud
of him. I'm so happy to have shared
my life with him."
Bomstad was born in Winter
Park. Growing up, he loved to read
and play sports, Shuminsky said.
Ethan Figel, a close friend who
met Bomstad in a UF graduate
physics class, said Bomstad broke
a lot of bones playing the sports
In the time that Figel knew him,
Bomstad broke his thumb twice
playing hockey, his ankle playing
Frisbee and snapped his Achilles
tendon playing basketball.
"He was always out there chal-
lenging his body," said Figel, who
often weight-lifted with Bomstad at
Southwest Recreation Center.
"No one would have been sur-
prised if he had died trying to break
a record," Figel said. "Like jumping
out of a plane at a higher altitude
than anyone had done."
Bomstad was also accomplished
as a teacher and student.
Shuminsky, who was a teacher,
said she began reading to him be-
fore he was born.
By age 4, Bomstad was reading
by himself and always loved books
She said Bomstad had planned
to continue his research or teach-
ing after receiving his doctorate in
mathematical physics from UF at
the end of the fall.
Although Shuminsky -said he
never bragged, Bomstad won sev-
eral awards for his talent.
He was awarded the
Outstanding Teaching Assistant
Award in 2006 by the American
Association of Physics Teachers.
Among other awards, Bomstad
won the J. Michael Harris
Supplemental Award, given by the
Institute for Fundamental Theory
in spring 2007, according to Proton,

said Bomstad was a good TA and
seemed to care about his students.
"Usually discussion sessions are
kind of quiet, but he always joked
around," Narayan said.
Shuminsky said he was "just a
neat person. He had so much to of-
fer everybody. He did enjoy life to
the fullest extent."
She added that Bomstad also
enjoyed cooking and creating his

stories where he was the hero.
One story that he told was about
a trip to Las Vegas that he took with

Bomstad's winnings covered the
expense of the trip, with $250 to

Event educates on Katrina
* TWO SPEAKERS WILL SHARE THEIR
By SARA RUBIN
Alligator Contributing Writer
Jon Bennett witnessed the destruction
caused by Hurricane Katrina firsthand and has
not forgotten it.
Bennett, a UF junior from New Orleans and
Reitz Union Board president, has spent the
last six months creating an opportunity for UF
students to examine the impact of Hurricane
Katrina. "New Orleans: The City the World
Forgot" is a free event on Saturday from 10
a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Reitz Union Rion Ballroom
that Bennett hopes will give students a glimpse
into New Orleans and the issues it faces.
Hurricane Katrina is still relevant, Bennett
said, because the city is not completely better
and the levees are still not up to code.
The event includes presentations from
speakers, boxed lunches for participants,
discussion on how to become involved and a
Two speakers from the city will share their
stories, and a UF student who has extensively
researched the disaster aftermath will speak,
Chris Rose, a speaker at the event, is a
columnist from The Times-Picayune and was
nominated for a Pulitzer Prize. His best-sell-
ing book, "1 Dead in Attic: After Katrina," is a
compilation of newspaper articles that describe
personal experiences after the hurricane.
Bennett said Rose's articles show the pain
and the suffering that people from New
Orleans felt, while still keeping their dedica-
tion and love for the city.
The other speaker from New Orleans,
Capt. Mark Willow from the city's police de-
apartment, will discuss his experiences during
the rescue effort with a severely understaffed
UF student and former Alligator staff
member Casey Anderson will also speak on
Saturday. Anderson was a University Scholar
and researched how communication affected
the Hurricane Katrina relief process.
He distributed surveys to Louisiana of-
ficials to rate their perceptions of .effective
communication. He hopes the research results
will help governments create better communi-
cation among leaders of different government
divisions to respond to natural disasters in the
His paper, "Hurricane Katrina and the
Pony Express: Intergovernmental
On Communication after the Storm,"
Campus describes the problem with just
having couriers as the sole form
of communication after the hurricane.
Anderson found from his surveys that New
Orleans officials said on average,, the Federal
Emergency Management Agency took 10 days
to respond to their messages or requests, the
same amount of time it took for a mail carrier
to carry a message across the'entire country on
The event is co-sponsored by the Reitz
Union Board and the UF Honors Program.
"The event was put together on a shoestring
budget," said Sheila Dickison, associate dean
for academic affairs in the College of Liberal
Arts and Sciences. "We asked the two speakers
to find the cheapest flight, and they will stay in

The UF College of Veterinary Medicine will host
an adopt-a-thon Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Julie Levy, a veterinarian from the college, said
it is going to be its largest adopt-a-thon since the
program started in 2002.
Several groups are scheduled to.bring more than
100 kittens, cats, puppies and dogs, according to a
county press release.
Levy said that because students leave
Gainesville for the summer, a majority of the ani-
mals at Saturday's adopt-a-thon have been sitting
in shelters since the students left.
"We're so affected by the seasonality of the uni-
versity," she said.
Because of crowding problems in shelters, the
adopt-a-thon will be offering a few deals to encour-
age people to bring home man's best friend, Levy
Pets that have been sitting in shelters the longest
and animals that have bonded with each other will
be offered for reduced prices.
"The longer they have been in care, the lower the
adoption fee is," she said.
Besides the discounted fees, all the animals eligi-
ble for adoption are spayed or neutered, vaccinated
and tested for infectious diseases.
"We're so affected by the seasonality
of the university."
Rescue groups will be in attendance to offer
many different dog breeds, including Chihuahuas
and golden retrievers and cat breeds such as
Siamese and Himalayans, according to the press
Levy said one of the main reasons the college is
hosting an adopt-a-thon and offering discounts is
the pet overpopulation in Alachua County.
Only half of pets in shelters end up getting ad-
opted. The rest are euthanized, she said.
students can be attributed to many things,
including stressful incidents, the loss of a
loved one or family history, she said.
"Everybody has days when they are feel-
ing down," Abrams said.
She advises students to modify their
study skills, time management and caffeine
intake to treat mild anxiety.
"Sometimes it is just as simple as being
assertive and being able to say no," she said.

Blogging on bargains
By KATIE GALLAGHER
.Alligator Writer -
When Meg Taylor graduated
from UF last December with degrees
in classical studies and Spanish, she
never expected to get into fashion.
But she's pushed aside the jeans
and baggy T-shirts she wore in
college to write for "The Bargain
Queen," a fashion blog that gets
70,000 hits a month.
"I'm really a nerd at heart, so it's
been kind of weird," she said.
She started her original blog, "All
About Appearances," after a breast
reduction surgery renewed her in-
terest in shopping.
She posted a few comments on
"The Bargain Queen," and founder
Sara Goldstein liked her writing
Goldstein asked if she'd like to
join her, though Taylor had only
been logging for two months.
Taylor, who also runs a Web
design company with her husband
Charles Taylor, said the Internet and
logging have changed the fashion
"There are so many jobs that have
been hard to get into," she said, "but
the Web allows you to show your-
self and make connections."
For people wanting to get into the
once-impenetrable world of fashion,
Taylor said her most important
skills have been ones she learned in
college: how to ask questions, find
answers and explain them to other
people. The skills are important to
any career, she said.
"I learn a lot of stuff by writing
posts on my blog," she said. "I look
them up so I can explain them to

ranges, some at less than $30 and
some at more than $150. But every-
thing is a good value for the money,
"I'm really a nerd at heart,
so it's been kind of weird."
Working in fashion has given her
a lot more respect for what goes on
behind the scenes.
"It's not the shallow, ditzy in-
dustry that it's made out to be," she
Taylor said it's never too early
for college students to start dressing
well. Professors are worth impress-
ing, she said.

Goldstein that she's completed
a new "chapter" every, time she
makes a blog post. But nothing is in
the works yet, she said.

of "The Bargain Queen" still some-

Gators to host Kentucky in SEC East showdown
* UF IS ONE OF ONLY FIVE
UNDEFEATED TEAMS LEFT.
By EVAN DREXLER
After four-straight road games,
there's no rest for the weary.
UF volleyball coach Mary
Wise picked Kentucky to win the
Southeastern Conference in August.
More than two months later, the
Wildcats are 5-1 in the SEC, a game
behind the undefeated No. 6 Gators
(13-0, 6-0 SEC).
The Wildcats come to Gainesville
tonight at 7 with a chance to tie UF
atop the SEC standings and ruin
the Gators' homecoming after 19-
straight days without a match in the
"I think Kentucky brings in some
of the best talent of any team in the
league," Wise said. "It is by far the
toughest stretch (of the-season)."
UF has not lost to Kentucky in 35
matches under Wise.
Though the UF players get to
sleep in their own beds for the first
time in three weekends, they won't
sleep easy knowing the Wildcats are
knocking at their door.
UF and Kentucky rank first and
second in many statistical categories
in the SEC. The Gators are first in
hitting percentage, assists per game,
kills per game with Kentucky right
The Wildcats, however, are first
in blocks per game while the Gators
take second in that category.
"I think Kentucky has the best
middle blocking one-two punch in
the league," Wise
said. "[They have

Junior Queen Nzenwa is first in
the SEC with 1.6 blocks per game,
and senior Nicole Britenriker is

freshman middle blocker, Lauren

Freshman of the Week three times

Johnson, who has the highest verti-
cal jump of any UF female athlete
- 31 inches off the ground. That's
more than two-and-a-half feet.
Wise had not heard about
Johnson's jumping until Tuesday.
"I knew K.J. had the best on our
team," Wise said. "We got her out of
cheerleading, she's ours. It would be
pretty funny if she was still cheer-
leading and had the highest vertical
The excellent blocking won't
end Friday since UF takes on rival
Tennessee (7-6, 2-4 SEC) on Sunday
at 1:30 p.m. The Volunteers are the
No. 3 team in the conference in
blocks per game.
The Gators are one of only five
teams left in Division-I volleyball
with no blemishes on their record.
Dayton, Stanford, Washington, and
Nebraska are the others. Though
Wise would prefer the team not to
lose at all, she acknowledges the dif-
ficulties of learning from a win.
"It is true that it is easier to learn
from a loss than a win," Wise said.

Burleigh reflects on career as win milestone approaches
By DANNY KLEIN
Becky Burleigh has a secret.
Judging by her demeanor you would never
know, but for the UF soccer coach, history is
just around the corner.
When the Gators (4-4-2) try to right the ship
against Vanderbilt (3-5-2) and Kentucky (6-2-
2) this weekend, Burleigh hopes to etch her
name into the record books, as she is only two
wins shy of 300 for her career.
"I really had no idea," senior defender
Shana Hudson said. "She never even told us."
For the two-time Southeastern Conference
Coach of the Year, keeping the accomplish-
ment quiet was no mistake.
"It just means I've been coaching for a long
time," Burleigh said. "I don't want to make a
big deal about it."
Words aren't necessary for Burleigh.
The only coach UF soccer has ever known
holds a resume that speaks for itself.
In 18 years, she has piled up a record of
298-81-25 with two schools and holds the fifth-
most wins among active coaches in Division I.
When UF began its soccer program in
1995, Burleigh was hired away from Berry
College in Georgia, where she won two NAIA
championships. It didn't take long for her to
emulate that success in Gainesville, when in
only the program's fourth year she captured
a national title.
"It just means I've been coaching
for a long time."
UF soccer coach
In her years at UF, Burleigh has developed
a reputation as a players' coach. Her serious
nature on the field is in stark contrast to the
person off it, goalkeeper Katie Fraine said.
"You would never guess it, but she really is
a teddy bear," Fraine said.
Fraine said Burleigh has a knack for calm-
ing down and motivating players, especially
the young ones like herself. Recently Fraine,
a redshirt freshman, was benched during the
second half of UF's match against Georgia.
Burleigh comforted the shaken Fraine,
telling her to keep trying and instilling faith
in her goalie.
"She's not the type to bring you down
when you make mistakes," Fraine said. "She's
just a positive person, and she's not afraid to
bring you in and tell you what she needs from
you. She's just a great competitor."
UF RUN vs. LSU RUN DEFENSE
UF rushes for 212.2 yards per game; LSU allows 39 yards per-game.
KEY PLAYERS: UF: So. QB Tim Tebow (89 attempts, 433 yards, 4.9 avg, 8 TDs), Jr. TB Kestahn Moore (56 att 286 yards, 5.1 avg, 4 TDs); LSU: Sr. DT Glenn Dorsey (25 tackles,
4.5 TFL), Sr. LB Ali Highsmith (33 tackles, 3.5 TFL).
ANALYSIS: If the Gators plan on having Tebow run at will, they better think again. The Tigers lead the nation in rushing defense for a reason. They are strong, fast and ferocious.
They held South Carolina running back Cory Boyd to 17 yards on 18 carries. For UF to have a chance, it has to throw different plays and different players at LSU all night and not
just Tebow sneaks.
UF PASS vs. LSU PASS DEFENSE
UF passes for 264.4 yards per game; LSU allows 135.6 yards per game.
KEY PLAYERS: UF: So. QB Tim Tebow (1,297 yds, 11 TDs-2 INTs, 69.7 pct, 185.45 rating), So. WR Percy Harvin (28 rec, 455 yds, 16.2 avg, 3 TDs), Sr. WR Andre Caldwell (4 rec,
111 yds, 27.8 avg); LSU: Sr. SS Craig Steltz (25 tackles, 4 INTs), Sr. CB Chevis Jackson (14 tackles, 2 INTs).
ANALYSIS: The return of Caldwell provides a major boost to the offense. For the last two games, Harvin was Tebow's only consistent option. Caldwell forces the Tigers to play
honest defense and not just focus on Harvin. LSU has three AII-SEC players in the secondary, including both starting'corners.
LSU RUN vs. UF RUN DEFENSE
LSU runs for 223.4 yards per game; UF allows 63.4 yards per game.
- KEY PLAYERS: LSU: Sr. FB Jacob Hester (63 att 327 yds, 5.2 avg, 4 TDs), So. TB Keiland Williams (30 att 226 yds, 7.5 avg, 4 TDs); UF: So. LB Brandon Spikes (46 tackles, 6
TFL), So. LB Dustin Doe (32 tackles, 2 FR).
ANALYSIS: Hester. and Williams provide a great one-two punch out of the backfield, something the Gators are seriously lacking. UF has done a great job of containing star runners
in recent games. The defensive tackles have gotten more pressure and players like Doe and Major Wright are making big plays.
LSU PASS vs. UF PASS DEFENSE
LSU passes for 216.8 yards per game; UF allows 247.4 yards per game.
KEY PLAYERS: LSU: Sr. QB Matt Flynn (673 yds, 3 TDs-2 INTs, 56.4 pct, 122.8 ratin), Sr. WR Early Doucet (15 rec, 153 yds, 10.2 avg, 2 TDs), So. WR Brandon LaFell (17 rec,
279 yds, 1 TD); UF: Jr. DE Derrick Harvey (18 tackles, 5 sacks), Sr. SS Tony Joiner (20 tackles, 1 INT).
ANALYSIS: Doucet is questionable for Saturday's game. If he doesn't play, it gives UF's young secondary a huge break. Given the fact that Joiner might not suit up because of his
arrest on a burglary charge on Tuesday morning, UF needs all the help it can get. Even with Joiner, the Gators made Auburn quarterback Brandon Cox look like a superstar last
week. Cox came into the game with three touchdowns and six interceptions, but left it with a 2-0 record against the Gators.
KEY PLAYERS: UF: Sr. Kicker Joey IjWas (4-6 FGs, long 32), Fr. Punter Chas Henry (17 punts, 36.9 avg, long 50);
LSU: Jr. Kicker Colt David (8-10 FGs, long 36), Sr. Punter Patrick Fisher (21 punts, 44.1 avg, long 61). H o w T h e
ANALYSIS: Outside of Brandon James, the Gators' special teams unit needs to vastly improve. Jamar Hornsby ran
into the punter last week, Ijjas missed a field goal and Henry got called for a pre-snap penalty to negate a converted
fake punt. LSU may have the fastest football player in the country in Trindon Holliday as a return specialist.
^ jg^' INTANGIBLES: Death Valley at night, revenge on their minds, a No. 1 ranking to defend. LSU has every edge on -- -
and off the field, except at coaching. UF has dealt with off-the-field issues and the pain from losing to Aubur in in and
the last week. A loss officially knocks the Gators out of the national championship race and puts them in serious a I
trouble of missing out on the SEC Championship Game. You could say UF received its wake-up call from Auburn I
last week, but you could say the same for LSU, which was severely tested by Tulane.

Caldwell to play, Doucet likely to sit

last two contests.
"They've been taking away a lot of our
weapons," Caldwell said. "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."
Those two players have been Tim Tebow
and Percy Harvin, who accounted for more
than 75 percent of the Gators' rushing
yards in the last two games.
The offense could get a boost this week
with the probable return of Caldwell, who
missed the Tennessee and Mississippi
games with a knee injury before playing
sparingly against Auburn.
UF coach Urban Meyer has yet to an-
nounce that Caldwell will start, but the
senior has already made up his mind.
"It's written in stone," Caldwell said.
"It's a done deal. I wouldn't let them sit me
out this game. I'm going regardless. This
is one of those games, whatever's wrong
with you, you're going to get over it, do
whatever it takes to get on that field, and
I'm going to do that."
LSU is also dealing with some injury
Wide receiver Early Doucet will most
likely not suit up for the game because of
a groin injury.
Meanwhile, Meyer has yet to determine
whether UF safety Tony Joiner will play
after he was charged with a felony for al-
legedly entering a tow lot

tion for the Gators.

nition of chicanery.

5. SHORE UP THE SPECIAL TEAMS
This may be the toughest bullet
point to check off. Joey Ijjas can't
miss field goals. Chas Henry can't
shank punts. Jamar Hornsby can't
run into the kicker. And when
Brandon James has the ball, don't
block anybody in the back.
6. CREATE TURNOVERS ON DEFENSE
While LSU's defense is impreg-
nable, the offense certainly has its
faults. Matt Flynn is not an all-world
quarterback and neither is Ryan
Perrilloux. The Tigers' receivers are
banged up. It might take a youngster
to do it Joe Haden, Major Wright
maybe? But the UF defense is going
to have to help out the offense.
7. MAKE MATT FLYNN BEAT YOU
The Gators have done a good job
stopping the run. Ole Miss running
back Benjarvus Green-Ellis was
stuffed. Auburn averaged fewer
than 3 yards per carry. On the year,
no team has rushed for 100 yards
against UF. If the defense can force
LSU to pass, we will see if Flynn can
8. BRING A PASS RUSH
If Matt Flynn is forced to beat

ondary a chance to turn the game

are lions, and tigers and bea well,
actually just tigers.
But according to UF senior wide
receiver Andre Caldwell, LSU's mas-
cot is actually a lion, so who knows.
what awaits us in Baton Rouge.
What we do know is that LSU has
a live tiger, Mike VI, who sits out in
his own live-habitat area between
Tiger Stadium and the Pete Maravich
So we decided to call up Dr.
Matthew Wheelock, who was one of
the student attendants who took care
of Mike V from 2000-2002, to find out
more about this feline creature.
Mike is wheeled around in a cage
- with cheerleaders on top dur-
ing a much-renowned pregame
But sometimes, the Tiger gets a
wee bit excited.
It seems Mike likes to pee on those
he loves most.
"Mike really liked strong smells," .
Wheelock said. "One of the things
that cats or tigers do is they like to
spray those things to claim them as
their own: At least during the time
that I was there the new cheerlead-
ers came over, and they were wear-
ing perfume. The older cheerleaders
would put them next to the cage and
he would turn and 'spray' them."
Yikes. At least the 400-pound cat
didn't have to take a dump.
Honestly, Mike, is that the way to
treat one of your own?
"I didn't feel the need to say any-
thing," Wheelock said. "Cat urine
kind of sticks with you for awhile.
Once they got sprayed they [knew

Gators seek redemption in Death Valley
By MIKE MCCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
The Gators will take on an unfamiliar role
No. 9 UF will travel to Baton Rouge to take on No. -
1 LSU in one of the most anticipated matchups of the
college football season.
The game will also be a chance for the Gators (4-1, "T .
2-1 Southeastern-Conference) to rebound from last
week's loss to Auburn.
"This is a great opportunity to come out here and
shock the world because I know nobody believes
in us," wide receiver Andre Caldwell said. "Like I
tell some of my teammates, I'd hate to be the team
that's got to play us this week because we're hungry.

Getting that revenge won't be too easy for UF, as
it marches into one of the game's most hostile envi-
ronments and faces the nation's best defense.
The Tigers (5-0, 2-0 SEC) are allowing fewer than
175 yards per game and have only given up two
touchdowns in a game once.
"They're definitely a challenge," UF center Drew
Miller said. "I'm not going to say they are the same
