Agrusa reveals plan to run for commission


Laura Heald Alligator
Student Sen. Kevin Reilly applauds Tuesday as former Senate President Robert Agrusa announces
that he will be running for a seat on the Gainesville City Commission.


* HIS TERM AS STUDENT
SENATE PRESIDENT IS OVER.

By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Alligator Writer
dculclasure@alligator.org

Although his term as Student
Senate president came to an end
Tuesday night, Robert Agrusa said
he is not done with politics.
Agrusa told the Senate at its
Tuesday night meeting that he
plans to run for the Gainesville City
Commission's At-Large District 2
seat, which will be filled after an
election in January.
In an interview before the
meeting, Agrusa said he had con-
templated the decision for several
months and officially filed the nec-
essary paperwork Thursday.
Agrusa said his goal as a com-
missioner would be to act as a
liaison between UF students and
Gainesville residents.
"I have a vision for the future
of the city of Gainesville, and it
combines student representation
and the greater Gainesville com-
munity," he said.


"As a Gainesville resident for the
last four and a half years, I'm pretty
well-versed with the issues that are
occurring in the city," he added.
Agrusa said he would release
his specific platform goals later this
week but said his campaign would
focus on the redevelopment and
sustainability of Gainesville.
"I know it's a tough battle.
There's been students that
have run in the past and
haven't done very well.
I'm hoping to change that
course."
Robert Agrusa
former Student Senate president

The 22-year-old political science
senior said he thinks he has enough
knowledge and experience to fill
the position, including two years in
UF's Student Senate, though he ad-
mitted his age might be a hindrance
to his campaign.
He graduates in December and
will focus on his campaign in the

Future tech fee possible


Book checkouts go online


By KIM WILMATH

kwilmath@alligator.org

In addition to a 5 percent tuition
increase, students could face a new
technology fee if Gov. Charlie Crist ap-
proves a bill that was introduced by the
Florida Senate on Tuesday.
The exact amount of the fee is still
unknown, but it could be up to 5 per-
cent of tuition per credit hour.
The Senate will vote on the bill
Friday, said Sen. Evelyn Lynn, chair of
the Higher Education Appropriations
committee.
The appropriations committee must
approve any fees for Florida's univer-
sities before the Senate or House of
Representatives can vote.
Individual universities would be

able to decide where the money would
go, and Lynn said students should
have an input.
If approved, the bill would be
implemented by fall
2009 and would not be
covered by the Bright
Futures Scholarship
Program.
In addition, the
Legislature voted to
automatically increase
Crist tuition if inflation in
Florida rises beginning fall 2008.
Crist would ultimately have to ap-
prove the tuition hike and technology
fee before they go into effect.
He recently indicated he would
agree with an increase.

The Alachua County Library District
has joined the UF library system in letting
patrons checkout items in their under-
wear.
This week, the county library launched
its new online checkout system. Anyone
with a library membership can enjoy
video, audio and reading material with-
out ever having to leave the house.
Daniel Barden, the technical services
administrator for the Alachua County
Library District, said the library has had
83 checkouts since the program launched
Monday
"Our digital collections are making
some great leaps and bounds," he said.

* SFCC is another
step closer to picking
a new vice
president of
academic affairs:.
The final candidate
for the job was
screened Tuesday.
See story, pg. 4.


The library district is working in
conjunction with OverDrive, a company
that collects and distributes electronic
materials.
Barden said those who use the online
program will no longer face late fees.
When a checkout expires,
LoCal the title will be automati-
News cally placed back in the
library's online collection.
Some titles, such as lan-
guage-learning programs, can also be
checked out permanently or burned to
a CD.
Music is also available for download.
Barden said the collection is primarily
jazz and classical music, but he is work-
.ing with OverDrive to get more popular
music, such as rap, hip-hop and pop.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Some senators say goodbye


By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Alligator Writer
dculclasure@alligator.org

UF's Student Senate spent
nearly four hours giving tearful
goodbyes to departing senators
in the first of two Tuesday night
meetings.
The first meeting featured
senators who would soon be
turning over their seats to the
senators elected Oct. 4. After
that meeting, about 30 brand-
new senators were scheduled
to take over.
Before the first meeting con-
cluded, the Senate voted for the
"most outstanding committee
chair" and "most outstanding
senator."
The winners will receive
awards that are paid for using
Student Government funds,
which come from student
money.
Departing senators and
other SG officials then took
more than three hours to say


their goodbyes and thank their
peers.
"There comes a time in ev-
ery senator's career when you
have to stand in front of Senate
with a heavy heart," said
Sen. Heshan "Grasshopper"
IUangkoon. "Tonight is my
night."
"We're saying goodbye
to a lot of great sena-
tors and welcoming
some new ones."
Ryan Moseley
Student Body president

llangkoon encouraged the
remaining senators to debate
bills and not merely pass them
based on party affiliation.
Student Body President
Ryan Moseley and the rest of
SG's executive branch also
paid their respects to departing
senators.
"We're saying goodbye


to a lot of great senators and
welcoming some new ones,"
Moseley said.
Outgoing Student Senate
President Robert Agrusa spent
about 45 minutes verbally
reflecting on his time in the
Senate.
He also handed out gavels
and drinking glasses to com-
mittee chairs.
Agrusa advised incoming
senators to work together.
The Senate was scheduled
to vote on its final piece of
legislation, a resolution in sup-
port of bringing Ruckus a
music downloading service
for college campuses to UF
By press time, they had not
done so.
The nearly 30 new sena-
tors were also scheduled to be
sworn-in and elect new Senate
officers, including the Senate
president and Senate president
pro-tempore in the second
meeting, which had not started
by press time.


Free PC help available


By EVA MAE SMITH
Alligator Contributing Writer

An event called Free Your PC
offered students free McAfee
antivirus protection, computer
cleaning, and creative software
and games Tuesday.
The event was held on the
Reitz Union Colonnade from 10
a.m. to 2 p.m.
It was sponsored by
Florida Free Culture, Student
Government, the UF Computing
Help Desk and the UF IT Security
Team.
Gabrielle Hall, a UF fresh-
man, brought her Dell laptop to
the event after noticing that her
computer was running slower
than normal.
Her antivirus protection pro-
gram was expiring.


At the event, Jordan Wiens, a
senior network security engineer
'for UF's security team and creator
of Free Your PC, was able to in-
stall McAfee antivirus protection
on Hall's laptop.
He also installed
On other free programs.
Campus Wiens updated
programs and also
cleaned out her computer by de-
leting unnecessary programs.
That allowed it to run twice
as fast.
"Since I have no knowledge of
computers, I would have never
been able to install or find these
programs by myself," Hall said.
Wiens said, "We pimp out
your computer for you."
Free Your PC will continue its
services today on the Reitz Union
Colonnade from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

SFCC

Interim VP screened


for permanent spot


By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Contributing Writer
Anne Kress said she has high ex-
pectations for the people who work
for her, but she understands it can be
hard to meet those expectations.
Kress was screened Tuesday for
the position of vice president of aca-
demic affairs at SFCC.
Kress has held the position of
interim vice president of academic
affairs since January 2005.
"I would put our faculty up
against any other faculty and we
would do better. Our students prove
that," Kress said.
She said that there is a reason
SFCC graduates make up most of
the transfer students at UE
"I really love Santa Fe and I
deeply value what we do at our
institution. I have respect for all of
the faculty and staff here, and I am
honored to even be considered,"
Kress said.
Kress was asked the same ques-
tions that Barbara Burrows, another
finalist for the position, was asked at
Monday's forum.
The questions, picked by a


screening committee of 21 faculty
and staff members, included topics
including general education, SFCC's
five campuses throughout northern
Florida and how to improve at
SFCC over the next five years.
Kress said many students get
discouraged in classes because of
negative experiences.
"I would put our faculty up
against any other faculty
and we would do better.
Our students prove that."
Anne Kress
SFCC interim vice president of
academic affairs

"1 would like to create a environ-
ment that is engaging to the stu-
dents," said Kress.
Kress has held six positions at
SFCC. She began as a part-time
English faculty member and worked
as the English department chair and
associate vice president.
Kress has four degrees from UF,
including a master's in English and
a doctorate in higher education.

Panel aims to connect LGBT, Greek communities at UF


By JORDANA FYNE
Alligator Contributing Writer
Ken Schwencke still thinks it's weird
that his brothers in Pi Kappa Alpha are
OK with it.
"For most of them, I'm the only gay
person they think they know," he said.
Schwencke sat on the Greeks and
Homophobia panel Tuesday night at
the Reitz Union, where he and six other
members of UF's Greek community
discussed what it is like to be Greek
and gay.
In its second year, the panel aimed
to bridge the gap between lesbian, gay,
bisexual and transgender students and
the Greek community, said Adam Amir,
LGBT student affairs cabinet director.
The panel was also one of several
events leading up to National Coming
Out Day on Thursday.
Amir said the Multicultural Greek
Council is very accepting of people
from different nationalities, ethnici-
ties and sexual orientations. He said
he hopes events like the Greek and
Homophobia panel will help open the
dialogue between the Multicultural
Greek Council and the Interfraternity
and Panhellenic councils.
Sara Rubin, a third-year student and
former Panhellenic recruitment staffer,
agreed there is a need forgreater aware-
ness and discussion of LGBT issues.
"I've probably met dose to 300
people while recruiting for Panhellenic,


and I've never met anyone who said
openly that they were gay," Rubin said.
"You'd think in such a large community
I'd come across at least some."
About 10 percent of any given popu-
lation is gay, said Nora Spencer, director
of LGBT Affairs in the Dean of Students
Office.
Though it's hard to estimate exact
numbers, it is certainly less in the Greek
community, she said.
LGBT Affairs aims to get the propor-
tions to match up by sponsoring open
discussions among fraternity and soror-
ity members.
Gamma Eta Sorority
On member Frances Riveram,
Campus a UF senior, found that
coming out to her sisters
was not as bad as she imagined it
would be.
"What was most memorable for me
was realizing that I'm not the only one,"
she said. "There is a stigma that being
Greek is not for gays. It was nice to be
out and able to bring my girlfriend to
sorority events."
Being aware of the language was
one of the most important messages of
the evening, Rivera said.
"There is no stereotype or look of
what a queer person is," she said. "You
don't know if you're hurting your
brother or sister who is staying in the
closet. You're -only encouraging them
to not want to be their true self around
you."

Editorial


Techno Dough

Students may have to

pay new fee
dd it to the list of things you thought you'd never
have to pay for in college. No, we're not talking about
the DVD player you tricked your parents into buying
for you. This is about a proposed technology fee.
If approved by the Florida Senate and Gov. Charlie Crist,
students could pay up to an additional 5 percent per credit
hour for the fee. It would go into effect fall 2009. We're gonna
be gutsy and bet the bill will pass. We'll even put our scholar-
ship money on it.
Here's the kicker: Bright Futures won't cover it, even
though the scholarship program was designed to cover ei-
ther 75 or 100 percent of eligible students' tuition and fees,
depending on their awards.
Bright Futures just ain't what it used to be. But that's an
editorial for another day.
For now, we know UF needs as much money as it can
get its hands on. If you've been to the CIRCA lab in the
Computer Science and Engineering building, you know it
needs new monitors. The ones in there are so big the key-
boards can barely fit on the desks. The computers in Library
West still don't have Office 2007. Many classrooms need new
projectors.
We could go on and on about the improvements UF could
apply the proposed fee to.
If it's implemented, each university will decide how the
money should be spent. So UF must ask students what the
money should go toward especially since it will be paid
out of our pockets and not just Student Government offi-
cials, who, more often than not, seem to be bobble-head dolls
for the administration.
Technology isn't cheap. Neither is an education. We hope
students can accept that, because we don't seem to have a
choice about these fees and tuition increases.



To Senate and Beyond


It appears that being pres-
ident of Student Senate
wasn't enough for him.
Now that Robert Agrusa
has ended his term in Student
Government, he's moving
into real-world government.
Or at least the Gainesville
City Commission.
Agrusa says he will
run for the commission's
At-Large seat in the 2008
election, which will be in
January. And he already
has an opponent, Thomas
Hawkins Jr., a born-and-
bred Gainesvillian.
Most outbound SG politi-
cos either go to law school or
Florida Blue Key, so having
one of our own take his ex-
perience and apply it is dif-
ferent. He wants to keep his
knowledge in Gainesville


instead of just adding a line
to his resum4 and going on
his way.
It would be nice to see
Agrusa stay in our fair city
to try to improve it, focusing
on the ideas of redevelop-
ment and sustainability in
the community.
Of course, we can't help
but point out Agrusa didn't
do much during his term
as Senate president, so if he
were elected, we hope-that
would change. But hey, at
least he didn't resign or get
expelled like some recent
former Senate presidents.
Best of luck to Agrusa as
he kicks off his campaign.
He'll need the students' vote
if he hopes to win. Hopefully
Chomp the Vote will show
up for him.

Column

Football player was treated unfairly


Garrett Tyler and Jack Berry appear to have noth-
ing to do with Tony Joiner. But there are moral
lessons to be learned from Gators athletes leaving
their sport and a football player's run-in with the law.
More on that a little later.
In the meantime, I'm told there were death threats
surrounding poor Stanley Forron, property manager of
Watson's Towing, unless he dropped charges against
Joiner. I knew people were upset about the incident be-
fore the Louisiana State University game, but threatening
to kill someone over a football 'game? That's blackmail-
ing.
What would have happened if someone other than
Joiner were there on that fateful morning? What if it
were Percy Harvin? What if it were even, by happen-
stance, Tim Tebow?
I can see orange-and-blue-clad fans choosing their
player over a possible '4-8 season. Hundreds of angry
calls would swell to thousands. Angry mobs would run
amok all over the city.
OK, since you're so nice, what if it were Florida State
University quarterback Xavier Lee?
Oops, I forgot. Neutral, law-abiding Gainesville
citizens would want the bad guys locked up. That's how
the legal system is supposed to work. Sadly, The Gator
Nation got exactly what it wanted from its collective
whining. A captain no more, Joiner went onto the field
for several.plays, and the Gators still lost. In that regard,
LSU's last-second victory can be seen as a fitting punish-
ment.
The law and the media can tolerate the antics of celeb-
rities to an extent. Michael Vick was in trouble through-
out his time with the Atlanta Falcons, but when federal


agents discovered he was a leader
in a dog-fighting ring, his career
took a dive.
In the 1960s and '70s, OJ
Simpson was a Heisman Trophy
winner and a future Hall of
Vincent Gagliano Famer. But today, people remem-
letters@alligator.org ber him for his murder trial, not
his sports career.
Tyler and Berry, who left the UF basketball team this
week, understood that there was a lot more to their ca-
reers than the Gators uniform. They selflessly gave up
the opportunity to play not only because it was best for
them, but also because it was best for the team. As se-
niors, they helped set a positive example for the younger
players on the roster significant detail, given that
Walter Hodge is the only other upperclassman on the
team.
Even Danny Wuerffel understood his role outside of
sports. He retired from the.NFL earlier than normal to
work full time for Desire Street Ministries, a charity de-
voted to helping the poor in New Orleans.
The lessons from this week and last must not be over-
looked. Yes, winning is great, but sports are about much
more than wins, titles and trophies. Even with back-to-
back basketball titles and last year's football title, there
will always be schools with more of one or the other.
One last thing must be remembered in the wake of
back-to-back losses and dashed title dreams: A national
championship is a reward given at the end of one season,
not at the beginning of another one.
Vincent Gagliano is a sophomore majoring in physics. His
column appears on Wednesdays.

Letters to the Editor
UF could be social-responsibility leader
I would like to offer some supplemental information about
Students for a Democratic Society's transparency and socially
responsible investment campaign, as well as our recent meeting
with UF President Bernie Machen.
We went into this campaign somewhat naive about UF's
ability to meet some of our demands. Nevertheless, after our
first action in September, Machen agreed to our request for a
formal audience.
The Board of Trustees implemented rudimentary steps to-
ward the campaign's policies at its September meeting. Because
of these positive developments, SDS decided to hold off on
protest until after our meeting with Machen.
This window of time gave us a much needed opportunity to
reevaluate our positions and formulate an argument that would
have greater appeal to an administrator such as Machen.
We found a Web site outlining the socially responsible invest-
ment campaigns of several prominent universities, including
Harvard, Columbia and Yale. With endowment investments up
to 12 times the size of UF's, these universities had implemented
some, if not all, of the demands we are making of UF.
The proposal we presented to Machen was based off of the
SRI advisory committees at these schools and outlined forming
a socially responsible investment committee at UF.
If UF acts on tils proposal, it will become the first public uni-
versity in the country with transparent and accountable socially
responsible investment policies.
In order to keep the pressure on the administration, SDS will
hold a demonstration at noon on Oct. 22 on the Reitz Union
Colonnade under the banner "No War, No Warming."

COUNTY COMMISSION

Commission debates effects of panhandling law


By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

While a county panhandling
ordinance was passed in September,
county commissioners are still de-
bating its purpose.
County commissioners voted
unanimously Tuesday morning to
refer the panhandling ordinance
for further research by the county


attorney before any action is taken
on the law.
The ordinance bars solicitation
on public streets in unincorporated
Alachua County, which includes
parts of Southwest 20th Avenue.
However, what was originally
regarded as a public safety issue has
become an issue of restricting non-
profit organizations from collecting
money for a cause.
The Alachua County Fire Rescue,


"I don't think it's appropri-
ate for pedestrians to be
where the cars go."
Paula DeLaney
Commissioner chair

which collected donations for the
"Fill the Boot" Muscular Dystrophy
Association campaign, isn't allowed


to gather money in the streets under
the current ordinance.
Commissioners were wary to
keep or repeal the ordinance with-
out more background information.
County attorney David Wagner
said the debate is a First Amendment
issue.
If the commission allows certain
people out in the streets, it would
become harder to enforce the ordi-
nance, Wagner said.


Some commissioners said safety
is still a concern.
Commissioner Chair Paula
DeLaney said she doesn't want
people in the streets.
"I don't think it's appropriate for
pedestrians to be where the cars go,"
she said.
DeLaney said that it sounds like
the commission has to either keep
the ordinance or repeal it, and there
is no in-between.

spring before pursuing a master's degree in
political science next fall.
"I know it's a tough battle," Agrusa said.
"There's been students that have run in the
past and haven't done very well. I'm hop-
ing to change that course."
Agrusa said the average age of a
Gainesville resident is 27, so his age could
help him represent his constituency.
Students would be cru-
cial to his campaign, he added.


could be benefit

The nearly 50,000 students in Gainesville
make up about one-half of the population,
and they were vital in
helping UF administrator
Jeanna Mastrodicasa win
a seat on the commission
in spring 2006, he said.
"If students came out
and rallied and voted, all
their issues they want to
Agrusa see addressed could be
addressed," Agrusa said.
"We're a pretty big force to be reckoned
with."


Crist must approve of tech fee first


TECHNOLOGY, from Page 1

In May, Crist vetoed a 5 percent tuition
increase that was approved almost unani-
mously in a legislative budget meeting,
Lynn said
That increase would have taken effect
this fall.
Lynn was disappointed about the veto
because students from across the state had
asked her for the increase, she said.
That increase would be used to improve
Florida universities' low student-faculty
ratios.
The Florida Board of Governors, the
state's highest governing body, announced
its own 5 percent spring tuition increase at
a September meeting without approval of
the Legislature or governor.
The board asserted that it has always had
the constitutional authority to raise tuition
but deferred that power to the Legislature
until now, said Bill Edmonds, spokesman
for the board.


Though the board and the Legislature
seem to have similar views on the issue, the
two bodies are still fighting over tuition-
setting power in a lawsuit led by former
Sen. Bob Graham.
A circuit court judge will decide on the
suit by the end of the year, Edmonds said.
Lynn said she could not speculate on the
results of the suit.
The spring startup date for the
State Legislature's increase would

News be optional, she said.
She said Florida State
University President T.K.
Wetherell has already said the university
would not adopt a tuition increase, until
fall 2008.
However, the board's spring increase is
mandatory.
It is unknown whether Bright Futures
would cover the board's increase since it's
controlled by the Legislature.
Despite the two proposals, there will
only be one 5 percent tuition increase for
students in spring.

dium. The addition will expand the weight room, coaches' offices and a

Prank callers threatened Tebow

0 THE QUARTERBACK HAD TO CHANGE HIS
PHONE NUMBER AFTER IT WAS LEAKED.

4 By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
V nzaccardi@alligator.org

Apparently Tim Tebow's cell phone number surfaced
and spread throughout Baton Rouge, La., last week.
Tebow received countless threatening messages on his
SA phone from LSU fans leading up to the Gators' loss to the
h r ~top-ranked Tigers on Saturday.
"Some people did take it way too far, farther than
you should take it with sports," Tebow said following
Tuesday's practice, the first workout for No. 13 UF (4-2,
2-2 Southeastern Conference) since the loss.
The sophomore quarterback had to listen to his mes-
sages one by one to delete them all as they started piling
up early last week.
He declined to discuss the specifics of the messages,
but said some included physical threats.
"I don't really use that kind of language too much,"
Tebow said.
Tebow responded by mocking the LSU fans after UF's
first touchdown,. a 2-yard pass to Kestahn Moore.
He dialed an imaginary cell phone and held his hand
to his helmet in celebration.
"They were just having fun with me, so I was having
fun with them, too," said Tebow, who completed 12 of
26 passes for 158 yards and ran for 67 yards on 16 carries
against LSU. "It's what college is all about. It's just fun,
and I had fun with it. And I know I probably got under
their skin a little bit."
LSU students weren't the only people to obtain
Tebow's number.
The quarterback's number was displayed on frater-
nity row of Tennessee's campus, according to a writer
from Tennessee's student newspaper.
Tebow has since gotten a new phone number, and
the old phone was handed over to the University Police
Department.
"I just worry about a young player's safety," UF coach
Urban Meyer said. "It's easy, just get rid of your phone. I
told Tun just dump it and get another one."
After the mocking celebration, LSU fans directed an
obscene chant toward Tebow as Joey Ijjas kicked an extra
Alex Kolyer/ Alligator point.
UF quarterback Tim Tebow watches from the sidelines of UF's "I think for the most part people were just having

Joiner regrets disappointing Gators


By JENNA MARINA

UF safety Tony Joiner commented
Tuesday for the first time about his arrest
nearly a week ago.
"[The worst part was] disappointing
my team and disappointing The Gator
Nation, having a distraction going into the
biggest game of the season," Joiner said.
Joiner was arrested Oct. 2 for attempt-

The senior was relieved at how .his

ore this "They were kind of upset, but they
knew the situation and how everything
was handled," Joiner said. "They were
Tony Joiner happy about me coming back."

the incident, Joiner was able to make light

Meyer should


be given credit,


not criticism

The next time you want to criticize Urban
Meyer, just stop, please.
If you're thinking of saying Tim Tebow
can't handle big-game situations, just zip it,
por favor.
So the Gators have lost two straight for
the first time since Ron Zook yes, the
coach who has his Illinois team ranked just
five spots behind the No. 13 Gators.
Gator Nation, I know some of you are up-
set after you watched Meyer mismanage the
clock and his timeouts
against LSU.
Yes, that was a mis-
take, and it hurt the
Gators.
But it didn't cost
them the game that
Brian Steele would be the defense's
Steele-ing Bases inability to stop
bsteele@alligator.org fourth-and-shorts,
combined with LSU's
Jacob Hester's ability to get those five extra
inches.
The coaches can only prepare the players
so much. After that, it's the athletes' respon-
sibility to get the job done.
Meyer made one mistake. News flash:
people, including football coaches, aren't
perfect.
Don't forget Jan. 8, when Meyer and
his staff completely owned Ohio State. The
coaching is the main reason the Gators won
that game. They were prepared for anything
and everything.
Because of Meyer's strategy, UF fans
can be proud owners of the bumper sticker
"Honk if you've sacked Troy Smith."
Then there's Tebow.
As I said before the season, UF fans set
up expectations for the young quarterback
that he simply can't reach, even if he does
turn Georgia's Uga into a poodle and
makes Bobby Bowden speak in complete
sentences.
Now that he hasn't been perfect the past
two weeks, he's taken some heat. Stop.
He's a first-year starting quarterback
- who's a future Heisman winner if he stays
healthy and he just played in one of the
most hostile environments he will ever play
in, college or professional.
Tebow and Meyer are two of the hardest-
working people you will ever meet in any
profession. They just can't be perfect.

UF looks to avenge S.C. loss


* THE GATORS TAKE ON THE GAME-
COCKS TONIGHT IN THE O'DOME.

By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Writer

You better believe Marcie Hampton re-
members last year's loss to South Carolina,
but it's a memory she'd rather forget.
"Do we have to talk about that?" the out-
side hitter asked.
Each loss tends to sting when you've
won 93 percent of your matches since 2005
- only six losses versus 78 wins as the UF
volleyball team has.
"We just did a really poor job of coming
in with the right focus and the right at-
titude," Hampton said. "Credit them, they
completely deserved to win that match and
we completely did a no-show."
The Gamecocks wiped away any chance
for the Gators to go undefeated in the
Southeastern Conference last year with a 3-1
(22-30, 34-36, 30-26, 24-30) victory Sept. 17 in
Columbia, S.C.
The Gamecocks come to the O'Connell
Center tonight at 7, and last year's loss is on
all the Gators' minds.
Like last season, South Carolina comes in
on the bottom end of the conference.
The Gamecocks are four matches under
.500 in the conference with a 2-6 record and
only nine wins on the season.
UF is undefeated in both SEC play and
the season (15-0, 8-0 SEC). -
The Gamecocks have not been ranked in
the top 25 since Dec. 2, 2002.


The Gators are the No. 5 team in the
country and haven't been unranked since
Sept. 10, 1991.
Still, the Gators are on upset alert and
are preparing for the team that beat them
a year ago.
"As soon as you stop thinking that a team
has a chance to beat you, that's exactly when
you get beat," UF coach Mary Wise said.
"This team understands we'll prepare for
South' Carolina no different than we prepare
for LSU."
Hampton thinks the upset UF experi-
enced last season benefited the Gators in the
long run.
"I think that that loss
was maybe a turning
point for us," Hampton
said. "I think we learned
Volleyball a lot from that match and
became a better team from
that match."
Middle blocker Kisya Killingsworth had
the best. offensive performance of her life,
earning career highs in kills (23), attacks
(50), service aces (3), points (27.5) and digs
(20).
But it still wasn't enough to put the
Gators over the top.
Killingsworth was even responsible for
South Carolina's match-winning point, tip-
ping the ball into the net from the back row.
"'I'm going to get my butt handed to me
by the coach,'" she remembers thinking after
the play. "A smart player would not tip the
ball into the net. ... I let the team down on
that one point."


Andrew Stanfill / Alligator Staff
UF senior outside hitter Marcie Hampton winds up to spike the ball during the first
game of the Gators' 3-1 win against Georgia on Sept. 14.


Sophomore libero Elyse Cusack had a
stress fracture in her foot that night and
didn't play, and Hampton was sick before
the match, but they aren't making any ex-
cuses.
"I was a little sick, but you know what,
not everyone's going to feeL great all the
time," Hampton said. "I think that it was


probably more in my head than anything
and I just didn't do anything to help the
team out."
Are the Gators primed for another upset
tonight?
"We'll see, if the planets align,"
Killingsworth.said,"/Hopefully the Gators
will be winning."


UF GOLF

Gators earn top-5 finish


By ANDY HUTCHINS
Alligator Writer

UF's 19th-ranked men's golf
team had a "pretty mediocre" day
Tuesday at the Jerry Pate National
Invitational, UF coach Buddy
Alexander said.
In fact, "pretty mediocre" sums
up the Gators' fall so far.
With a 21-under 278, UF finished
fifth to No. 4 Alabama's tournament-
record 42-under onslaught at the Old
Overton course in Birmingham, Ala.
Billy Horschel followed his sec-
ond-round 64 with a third-round 68,
which lowered the junior two-time
All-American's total to 13 under for
the tournament.
He finished in third place, two
strokes short of Alabama's Mark
Harrell. Horschel's three-round 200
was the best finish in his career at
UF.
But there wasn't a lot of help be-
hind him.
Junior Toby Ragland fired the
Gators' second-lowest score of the
tournament, 208, to finish in 17th
place at 5 under.
Following Ragland was senior
Manuel Villegas, who chipped in a
70 to finish tied for 18th at 4-under-
par.
Freshman Arnond Vongvanij shot
a 1-over 72 and backed up to 44th at
5 over.
Sophomore Tyson Alexander,


whose score increased each round,
struggled to finish at a 6-over 77,
which relegated him to an 11-over
224 and a tie for 58th place.
Alexander admitted the dispari-
ties in scoring have him concerned.
"Billy finishes in the top 10 and
we don't get anybody else in the top
10," Alexander said. "You can't be
competitive in golf
tournaments with
only one guy in the
top 10."
So far this fall,
no more than two
Gators. have made
the top 10 in each
Horschei tournament, and
even that only happened once,
at the season-opening Inverness
Invitational.
UF finished third in that tourna-
ment its best finish of the season.
"We've played pretty well at
home and at our qualifying rounds,"
Alexander added. "I think we prob-
ably need to readjust our expecta-
tions, our dedication to getting
better."
With only the Callaway Golf
Collegiate a match-play tourna-
ment at the end of October on UF's
slate for the rest of the fall, Alexander
is hoping his team works out the
kinks before its spring swing.
"We'll see if we can get these
guys to believe in themselves a little
more."

Tartt denies LSU's Dorsey took cheap shot

fun," Tebow said. "But unfortu-
nately there's (other) people like
that everywhere."
Tebow shared the messages
with his roommate, senior strong
safety Tony Joiner.
'That was kind of crazy," Joiner
said.
The calls came in so frequently
that Tebow would accidentally
connect to a caller when he opened
his phone for other purposes.
Tebow quickly hung up when
he realized what was going on.
"Just an interesting experience
handling it all," Tebow said, "but it
wasn't too much."
A similar situation occurred in
Gainesville, where Stan Forron,
the towing company spokesman
engulfed by the Joiner incident last
week, received hundreds of threat-
ening phone calls.


Gators fans called in bomb
threats and death threats, but they
stopped Friday as the game ap-
proached.
Forron, like Tebow, does not see
a place for phone threats in college
football.
"It's only a game," said Forron,
who added that the
Gainesville Police
Department has not
spoken to him once
FOo all since the Joiner inci-
dent on Oct. 2. "It's
not life and death.
.. I understand passion for foot-
ball, but to threaten people?"
HEISMAN WATCH: Tebow'sHeisman
Trophy hopes didn't take much of a
hit from Saturday's loss.
SI.com's Gene Menez has
Tebow at No. 1 on his list while
ESPN.com ranked Tebow No. 4,
behind Darren McFadden, Matt
Ryan and DeSean Jackson.


NOTES, from page 14


Still, Joiner knows he is going to have to atone
for the distress he caused the team.
For starters, Joiner said he has "a couple days
of waking up in the morning," and Gators coach
Urban Meyer stripped the senior of his captaincy.
Joiner hopes to move on from the whirlwind
week and plans to regain the team's trust.
"I'm just going to have to do what I was doing
before this incident," Joiner said. "Before this inci-
dent, I was doing quite well. I just have to get back
to doing what I do all the time."

Miles, but he out-coaches 19 of
20 other coaches.
"He won a national cham-
pionship for a reason," senior
wide receiver Andre Caldwell
said. "He's got his own meth-
ods and they work. Everybody
just needs to relax and let him
do his job."
Tebow was out-managed by
the Tigers' Matt Flynn, but he's

quarterback tenfold.
"He's a human being he
makes mistakes," Caldwell
said. "That's part of being a
quarterback they'll love you
one day, hate you the next."
You probably didn't foresee
the Gators with two losses at
this point, but neither did they.
Some. of the coaching
schemes have been kooky this
season with Tebow and Percy
Harvin running the show for
a few weeks, but the coaches


have learned their lesson.
There's nobody who prepares
better for teams than Meyer.
Look what happened to the
Buckeyes when UF had more
than a month to prepare.
With a week before the
Kentucky game, Meyer and
Co. will be able to regroup the
twice-fallen Gators, and that
spells trouble for the Wildcats.
They've got a mad, angry
UF team coming their way and,
just like Meyer has said, the
Gators will be smoking'. "

TARTF CLEARS THE AIR: UF offensive guard Jim
Tartt dispelled any rumors that
LSU's Glenn Dorsey took some
extra hits during the Gators'
loss to the Tigers on Saturday
night.
Rumors circulated after the
game that Dorsey had taken a
cheap shot at Tartt by poking
him in the eye.
Tartt "He was just pass rushing,"
Tartt said. "He was just swinging his arms and his
thumb went up in my eye. It wasn't a big deal."
