SFCC selects No. 2 official for academics


Anne Kress is new provost


Charles Roop/ Alligator Staff
Jackson Sasser, SFCC president, shakes hands with Anne Kress, the college's newly announced pro-
vost and vice president of academic affairs, at the college Tuesday.


By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Contributing Writer

After a two-month search, Anne
Kress was named provost and vice
president of academic affairs at
SFCC on Tuesday.
Kress has held positions at SFCC,
including English department chair
and interim vice president of aca-
demic affairs, since January 2005.
Although SFCC President
Jackson Sasser made the applica-
tion process public, Sasser said he
didn't see how anyone in the coun-
try could compete with Kress.
"Dr. Kress is a national leader
because of her academic repre-
sentation, her love of learning,
her practice of teaching and her ...
expectation of students doing their
best," Sasser said.
Sasser said Kress not only has
an intellectual commitment to the
college but a love for what is done
at SFCC.
"She is the best of the best at
Santa Fe," Sasser said.
SFCC put together a screening
committee composed of academic


chairs, academic directors, admin-
istrators and staff from the offices
of student and administrative af-
fairs to find the right person for the
job, said Lela Elmore, SFCC human
resource coordinator.

"She is the best of the best
at Santa Fe."
Jackson Sasser
SFCC president

The screening committee re-
viewed all of the candidates' cre-
dentials, read recommendations
and held forums, where committee
members asked the finalists ques-
tions.
The committee deliberated
and made its recommendation to
Sasser.
"This process with the ultimate
selection of Dr. Kress had the most
integrity of any of the screening
and selection processes I have ob-
served since I've been president,"
Sasser said.

Emergency plan expanded


* STUDENTS MUST SUBMIT
EMERGENCY CONTACT INFORMATION.

By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

To expand UF's emergency-notification
plan, students must submit emergency con-
tact information to UF before they register
for spring classes.
In case of a campuswide emergency, UF
administrators will warn students with a mass
text message, according to an e-mail sent to all
UF students from Patricia Telles-Irvin, UF's
vice president for student affairs.
UF planned to update its emergency plan
after the Virginia Tech shooting last year.
The university's current emergency-no-
tification plan includes e-mail, posts on the
UF Web site and news releases.
Beginning Oct. 22, students must submit


addresses, cell phone numbers, work num-
bers, home numbers and the numbers of
designated emergency contacts.
Emergency contacts are usually relatives,
the e-mail stated.
Students do.not have to wait until their
designated registration
times to input the updated
information.
The emergency contacts
UF gathers will not be used
outside UF or the emergen-
cy text-messaging service it
has contracted, the e-mail
Telles-Irvin stated.
It is also exempt from
public disclosure under Florida's open re-
cords law.
"UF is just being proactive," said Katy
Davis, a public relations freshman. "I don't
really think it's intrusive."

Towing under scrutiny


By KORI FREDERICK
Alligator Writer

When Ashley Durden walked out
of her University Commons apart-
ment, she faced many Gainesville
residents' worst nightmare: her car
was gone.
The white Ford Expedition had
been towed by Elite Towing for be-
ing parked in a visitor's space with-
out the proper decal.
The nightmare only got worse
for Durden, an SFCC student, when
the company refused to accept her
credit card, which is a violation of
city rules.
When Durden tried to pay the


fine using her debit card, the per-
son working the front desk tried to
charge her an extra $2, she said.
A GPD officer arrived on the
scene and discovered there was
a credit card machine behind the
front desk, according
LOcal to the citation report.
News The officer fined the
company $300 for im-
proper procedure.
Improper towing procedures,
like the one encountered by Durden
are common in Gainesville, said
Keith Kameg, spokesman for
Gainesville Police Department.

The 12-point bill was mainly

on issues such as stopping
faculty from taking graduate

encouraging the expression
of ideas that might clash with
those of a faculty adviser.

UF RESEARCH

Scientists gain new insight into how HIV evolves


By STEVEN WEINER
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF scientists have discovered how HIV
evolves throughout a person's lifetime
into AIDS.
This discovery might offer insight into
new treatments that could catch the virus
before it becomes deadly.


Researchers at UF's College of Medicine
monitored four children born with HIV,
studying blood and tissue samples taken
at birth, throughout their lives and after
their deaths.
They tracked mutations in a specific
protein.
"We were very interested in under-
standing how the virus mutates from the
beginning of the infection until the end,"


Si said Marco Salemi in a
news release. Salemi is
an assistant professor
of pathology, immu-
nology and laboratory
medicine in the College
,* of Medicine.
He is also a lead au-
Saleml thor of the study.
Scientists found the virus came in two


forms.
One of the forms became more promi-
nent right before the onset of AIDS.
The study showed the viral changes
took place in a small organ behind the
breastbone called the thymus.
UF's study is unique as it is one of the
first to study the progression of HIV in
humans, not cell cultures or animals, the
release stated.

The first floor can still be used as
a study area, but all the books have
been removed to be sucked clean
with high-efficiency particulate air
vacuums and wiped down with
antimicrobial solution.
"If someone needs something on
the first floor, they are unfortunately
out of luck," Layton said.

restricted to staff.

dear out the infestation.
The company believes the mold
was brought on by excessive humid-
ity after heavy rainfall the previous
weekend, Gerald Kidney, assistant
vice president for Health Affairs,
said in a statement released Friday.
Kidney said the environmental
levels have been adjusted so that
the spread of the mold will not
continue.
Layton said the library plans to
get a remote-control device to test
the humidity periodically on its
own, similar to the devices used


in Smathers Library's Preservation
Department.
In the meantime, the library
plans to keep people informed with
signs around the building, updates
on the Health Science Center listserv
and information posted on its Web
site.
Layton said she expects that af-
ter remediation, the library will be
reopened and it will be like it never
happened.
"A library is like an iceberg,"
Layton said. "All you see is not all
that goes on."

Numbers Game

Emergency texts prompt

many questions
UF wants your digits.
By now, you've probably seen the e-mail sent from
Patricia Telles-Irvin, UF's vice president for student
affairs. But if you haven't yet, we'll get you up to speed.
Before you can register for your spring classes, you'll
have to hand over your emergency contact information.
In response to the events at Virginia Tech and to create a
"comprehensive emergency notification plan," UF wants
students' cell phone numbers so it can notify students more
quickly in emergency situations.
But we need some clarifications on how our numbers will
be used. Students' numbers are exempt from public-record
laws because they would only be used in case of emergency,
the e-mail stated. That's good to know. We get enough junk
mail and spam e-mails because our addresses and e-mails
are public. We don't need phone calls, too, on where ive can
buy class rings or apply for illegitimate scholarships.
And the emergency-notification plan could be useful in
case of personal emergencies, as well. If you're injured or in
trouble, it might be helpful for UF to have a way to quickly
notify your parents.
This system has some flaws, but they aren't all UF's
fault.
First, and most obvious, not all students have cell phones.
International students often don't bring their phones with
them from home because of how expensive it is. Some stu-
dents can't afford them. Others just don't want them. UF
will not be able to require all students to enter a cell phone
number because that could open up avenues for students to
submit fake numbers. UF cannot penalize students without
phones by preventing them from registering for classes.
Then we have the issue that not all cell phones are capable
of receiving text messages. Hard as it is to believe, some stu-
dents may still have really old cell phones (i.e. five years)
that don't have color screens, don't take pictures, don't play
music, have those changeable covers and don't receive
texts.
Also, there should be a way for students to opt out of
receiving all or certain types of emergency texts. Texts cost
many students money to send and receive. We already shell
out for books, rent, tuition, food and a thousand other ex-
penses. Now this?
For that matter, what qualifies as an emergency? Does UF
plan to text us every time there's severe weather in the area
or only in the most extreme of situations, such as if there is a
killer on campus? UF needs to make sure it doesn't send us
texts when e-mails would suffice, and it needs to make sure
it knows where to draw the line between important informa-
tion and an emergency.
The biggest question we have is, what if students' phone
numbers are stolen or otherwise compromised? Sure, only
UF and the contracted emergency text message provider will
have access to our phone numbers, but in this digital age,
anything stored on a computer could be stolen or abused.
Hackers would probably love to get their hands on 50,000
phone numbers.
Tim Tebow already knows what that feels like. The rest of
us don't need to learn, too.
UF needs to give students more answers before this plan
is put into place.

Plans for homeless not panning out


Nearly two months after Gainesville banished pan-
handling, I'm giving a D-mintis to Gainesville's
"Give a Better Way!" program for refurbishing
old parking meters into collection stations.
It doesn't take a math major to see that spending about
$259 for signs while raising only $101.70 in donations
is not profitable. Forty dollars was also raised online
through PayPal.
Usually, I am not one to express anger in my writing,
but after what I've seen over the past several months, the
solutions look uglier and uglier.
First, the Gainesville City Commission punished pan-
handlers with a fine or jail time ironic, considering most
people who panhandle do not have the money to pay a
fine in the first place. The Alachua County Commission
also created a rule against panhandling.
Then, the Gainesville Community Redevelopment
Agency tried to get the poor to join a homeless soccer
league with no pay for play.
Not only that, but Jim Hencin, city block grant man-
ager, said the city should spend more money beyond
refurbishment to push the program more aggressively. If
the results from the first two months are any indication,
the city may put itself into an even bigger hole. People, no
matter how generous, can only give so much.
There is only one solution for the program: The govern-
ment should not let it run for a full year. It should termi-
nate the program immediately.
If the leaders of Alachua County really want to help the
homeless, they should take money they would have spent
hawking the program and give it directly to the poor.
If county leaders knew then what they know now, they
could have donated twice as much toward bus passes and


food than what they got from the
meters.
The citizens who give them tax
money work far too hard for far
too long to give it to people, who in
Vincent Gaglianoturn spend it on advertising that is
Vincent Gagliano supposed to convince them to give
letters@alligator.org away even more of their money.
That doesn't mean the home-
less aren't important. It just means there need to be bet-
ter ways of providing for them. Continuing the program
makes no more sense than a soup kitchen going out on a
lunch break.
By the way, the panhandling ban isn't working either.
Because the ordinances only work within the city and
unincorporated parts of the county, people could beg for
money outside those parts without punished.
Besides, even if the city locks up those who beg, it has
to give them food and clothing for the length of their stay.
Why not put up more homeless shelters? It would take
care of the needy until they could work without putting
them at risk for crimes.
In fact, why not put the student-run homeless shelter
measure back on Student Government ballots next year?
Students who are willing to take jobs there could get finan-
cial aid for their educations, plus the homeless could stay
off of the streets until they find jobs.
That's a win-win situation for the county, the homeless
and UF. And yes, students are willing to run a shelter. If it
narrowly missed becoming reality this year, imagine if a
few more affirmative voices voted in the next.
Vincent Gagliano is a sophomore majoring in physics.
His column appears on Wednesdays.

Government bigwigs out of his appoint-
ments but lied; and to top it all off, UF
President Bernie Machen has veto power
over any of the panel's findings and resolu-
tions he doesn't favor.
The only member of this committee who
has shown any kind of true interest in re-
solving the discrepancies between the calls
of excessive force and Accent mismanage-
ment has been Brian Aungst. He has also
made several attempts to reach out to inde-
pendent student leaders.
Still, the fact that this committee and its
calendar of meetings were pushed past the
elections, combined with the lies of Moseley,
the veto power of Machen and the fact that
most independents will not waste their time
speaking to Tigert puppets....
This committee is an absolute trav-
esty. I'm sure you will see more of the Joe
Courters rush to get into the headlines with
photos and passionate speeches, including
hand waves, fist pumps and useless political
rhetoric. Travesty. Nothing but a show. The

Alligator downplays Senate successes
While I appreciate his interest in the
Student Senate, Will Foster has managed to
latch on to one phrase while entirely missing
the point of Shannyn Schott's letter.
Almost every Wednesday, the Alligator
features articles about the Student Senate.
Over the past year, many have been very
positive, featuring Kevin Reilly's work on
credit cards around campus, Lindsey Johns'
enforcement of constituency requirements,
Kellie Dale's efforts to increase campus
safety with blue lights, and the Senate's re-
cycling and sustainability initiatives.
The editorial board even awarded sev-
eral LAURELs to the Student Senate and its
members over the course of the past year.
But around election time, the editorial board
of the Alligator always has the same opin-
ion, no matter what has actually occurred in
Student Government in the past year.
The editorial board blindly minimized

have made around campus while blatantly

Kangaroo robbed


* $241 WAS STOLEN FROM
A S.E. GAINESVILLE STORE.

By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

A convenience store in south-
east Gainesville was robbed ear-
lier this week.
The robbery took place at the
Kangaroo Express convenience
store on Southeast Fourth Street
on Monday night. The Gainesville
Police Department responded to
the call at 8:24 p.m., an incident
report stated.
Armed with a handgun, the
robber allegedly forced a cashier
to open the register and then stole
$241, the report stated.
GPD spokesman Lt. Keith
Kameg said the case has been
turned over to detectives.


"Usually it's done by people
who are either desperate or look-
ing to pay for drugs," Kameg
said.
GPD hasn't seen many conve-
nience store robberies in the past,
he said.
"Realistically, they don't have
much money," Kameg said.
"Good criminals
Public know this."
Safety He said criminals
usually exhibit the
same characteristics.
"They don't have a clue on
how to exist in society, and this is
all they know," Kameg said.
GPD spokeswoman Erica Doll
said police are still looking for in-
formation to make an arrest.
If anyone has information re-
garding the robbery, call the GPD
detective bureau at 352-334-2470.


ON CAMPUS

Safe-sex event held on lawn


By SARA RUBIN
Alligator Contributing Writer

The condom race is back.
Blindfolded students will compete to correctly
put a condom on a plastic penis Wednesday at the
Reitz Union North Lawn.
The condom race is one of several games and
services available to students as part of "Sex on the
Lawn," an event put on by Vox: Voices for Planned
Parenthood from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
"Sex on the Lawn" is an open environment that
provides students with information to help them
make healthy choices, said Katelyn Milliman,
president of Vox.
When it comes to condoms, there is technical
and social ignorance, Milliman said.
She said certain stereotypes and stigmas pre-
vent some people from using them.
Vox promotes condoms as a good contracep-
tive choice because they are the cheapest type
available to students that prevent pregnancy and
protect users from sexually transmitted infections,
she said.
Pansy Uberoi, secretary of Vox, said partici-
pants are blindfolded during the condom race be-
cause condoms are often used at night.
If people can put a condom on correctly while
blindfolded, then they should be able to do so in


any real-life situation, she said.
The organization has more than 2,500 condoms
to give out this semester, and free condoms will be
an added bonus to the other activities, she said.
Voxipedia, a game featuring a life-sized board
similar in appearance to Twister, will have partici-
pants run to the blocks of colors when symptoms

"Abstinence is where people start,
but not where people end."
Katelyn Milliman
president of Vox: Voices for Planned Parenthood

are called out that correspond to the correct STI.
A Planned Parenthood representative will also
be present to answer student questions about safe
sex and sexual health.
HIV testing will be free to students at the event,
as well. Milliman said students don't need to be
sexually active to enjoy the event.
"Abstinence is where people start," she said,
"but not where people end."
Sex education and safe-sex information are im-
portant for everyone at some point in their lives,
she said.
Milliman said she expects about 200 students
to stop by throughout the day.

RTS driver stable


after bus accident


Andrew Stanfill / Alligator Staff
Paramedics prepare to move an RTS bus driver after his bus rolled over him Monday on McCarty Drive
near the Nadine McGuire Theatre and Dance Pavilion.


* THE DRIVER'S BUS
ROLLED OVER HIM MONDAY.

By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

A driver whose bus rolled over
him Monday night is in stable con-
dition, a city spokesman said.
The name of the driver, who
works for Regional Transit System,
and his injuries could not be re-
leased.
The incident happened at about
10:10 p.m. Monday on McCarty
Drive.
University Police Department
Lt. Robert Wagner said the driver
was transported to Shands at UF.
Theresa Harrison, RTS market-
ing and communications special-
ist, said no passengers were on the
bus or involved in the incident.


The bus was damaged slightly,
Harrison said.
All RTS drivers go through 40
or more hours of bus training as
well as training on RTS policies
and procedures, she said.
Gainesville's Risk Management
Department and RTS are conduct-
ing investigations of the incident,
she said.
UPD is also conducting an
investigation and is waiting to
interview the driver of the bus,
Wagner said.
UPD may issue the driver a
citation.
The citation can't be about care-
less driving because the driver
wasn't in the bus when it started
rolling, Wagner said.
At this point, he said, it's about
properly securing the vehicle's
braking methods.


GPD issued around 90 citations in September


11 applicants reviewed

SFCC, from Page 1

Elmore said the term provost is defined differently by
colleges.
At SFCC, it means second in command in the academic
department, she said.
Elmore said this position has been filled on an interim
basis for the past few years, and the col-
lege decided it was time to fill it perma-
nently. The academic department is the
."largest part of the college, Elmore said.
4 Since the first day of fall semester,
b when the position was posted, the com-
mittee narrowed the search from 11
Kress applicants down to Kress and Barbara
Burrows, who is provost of Marshalltown
Community College in Marshalltown, Iowa.
Burrows also has a history at SFCC.
During her eight years at SFCC, Burrows taught math,
coached the women's softball team and was the Faculty
Senate president for three years.
Burrows and Kress were screened Oct. 8 and Oct: 9 at
public forums on SFCC's Northwest campus.




Info would not be public


PLAN, from Page 1


Davis said she realized UF
didn't have all her necessary
emergency contact information
when she came down with a
kidney infection earlier this
month.
The Student Health Care
Center sent her to the emergen-
cy room but ran into problems
when doctors couldn't get in
touch with her parents.
Tracking down her insurance
information took an hour and a
half longer than it should have,
she said.
She said the whole situation
would have been much easier if


UF had a phone number for an
emergency contact.
"I'm just happy they're get-"
ting it now," Davis added.
Kelsey Kempler, a UF sopho-
more, said releasing
Public her emergency con-
Safety tact information to
UF puts her at ease,
especially after re-
cent school shootings.
Kempler said she has no ob-
jection to giving UF the tools to
protect her.
She said she thinks most
students would agree with that
viewpoint.
"I thought they already had
the info," she said. "But I'm
happy. It's for our safety."


TOWING, from Page 1


creasing violations'of city towing
rules and has intensified efforts to
crack down on improper towing,
he said.
In September, GPD issued about
90 citations.
Most of the citations were to Elite,
Watson's and Ultimate Towing.
Elite had 16, Ultimate had 22 and
Watson's had 62.
Half of the violations for each
company were issued when a com-
pany stored a towed vehicle in an
impound lot other than its own.
"The towing situation in this
town is getting ridiculous," Kameg
said.
Celeste Forron, owner of
Watson's, said she's fighting the
citations.
"The amount of citations has be-
come a little extreme," she said. "I'm
not sure why this is such an issue."
Celeste Forron explained that
Watson's, Elite and Ultimate all
use the same two lots: a main lot
and an overflow lot used on busy
weekends.
They also share a central
dispatch location but have
separate phone numbers.
Other companies have multiple
yards they use to store the cars, too,
she said.
"Imagine if Starbucks or Wal-
Mart only used one location," she
said. "That's what this ordinance
expects from me."
But Kameg said he doesn't think
the issue is that simple.
"This is absolutely and utterly
ridiculous that there are this many
violations over something as basic
as where cars have to go," Kameg
said.
The first time a company is
found in violation of a point-of-tow-
to-point-of-storage requirement, it
pays $125, he said. A second viola-
tion is $250, and each further viola-
tion is $500.
And while citations continue to
be written, Kameg said, he doesn't


think the violations will go down
until the tow companies have to
start paying the fines.
Celeste Forron said the city
makes money off roam towing, too.
"The towing situation in
this town is getting ridicu-
lous."
Keith Kameg
spokesman for GPD

She said apartment complexes
must pay the city $47 to let the tow-
ing companies have the right to tow
in their complexes.
The companies must also pay
permitting fees for their trucks, driv-
ers and insurance.
Lt. Peter Backhaus, commander
of GPD's support services division,
is in charge of issuing the citations.
The civil citation is complete once
the violations are issued. The charge
is then taken before a judge who will
determine if the companies are inno-
cent or guilty of the violation.
A company can lose its roam
towing privileges for six months if it
receives three convictions in a year,
Backhaus said.


It can be suspended for a year if it
is cited three more times in the same
year, he said.
There have been no convictions,
and no fines have been paid be-
cause no cases have gone to court.
Backhaus said the courts will not
hear any of the citation cases until
December, the earliest possible trial
date.
GPD, city commissioners and
towing companies are scheduled to
go over a proposed "Towing Bill of
Rights" today at City Hall.
Kameg said the new bill would
try to clarify existing city ordinances
and help vehide owners understand
what procedures are improper.
Kameg said the city commis-
sion has created good towing ordi-
nances, but GPD continues to have
problems with tow companies that
violate them.
Celeste Forron has opted for only
one hearing that will lump all the
citations together.
"We're not trying to hurt peo-
ple," she said. "My drivers are often
considered lower than the drug
dealers. We're just trying to serve
our customers: the business owners.
It's kind of disheartening."


A tow over the lir
These are some of the violations the Gainesville Polici
Department cited tow companies for in September:

* If the owner of a vehicle gets to it before it is towed away, the col
cannot charge the full towing rate. VIOLATIONS IN SEPTEMBER: 2

* A tow company cannot store a vehicle in a lot other than its own.
VIOLATIONS IN SEPTEMBER: 90

* Towing legally parked vehicles is a violation. Tow companies mus
pictures of cars before they are towed. Owners should ask to see tl
photos of their cars before paying fines. VIOLATIONS IN SEPTEMBE

UF VOLLEYBALL

Gators endure sleepless nights after Arkansas loss


MICA nulyer / mlgaii ur
UF sophomore libero Elyse Cusack energizes her teammates during UF's sweep of
South Carolina on Oct. 10 at the O' Connell Center.


By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Writer

Amber McCray is having nightmares.
The senior opposite hitter keeps reliv-
ing moments from Friday night's loss to
Arkansas in her dreams, and she's losing
precious sleep because of it.
"I've had sleeping problems ever since,"
McCray said. "That night was especially
bad because every time I laid my head
down, I kept replaying the game every
play of the game."
She dreams of situations where she could
have acted differently, shots she could have
hit better and the final moments of the loss.
"Then I wake up and realize noth-
ing changed," she said. "We still lost to
Arkansas."
She has discussed the restless nights
with teammate Marcie Hampton, who
hasn't been sleeping much better.
"Did you sleep good last night?"
McCray asks Hampton. "It's al-
ways the same reply 'Not really.'"
The No. 10 Gators volleyball team (16-
1, 9-1 Southeastern Conference) hopes to
get back in winning form this weekend so
the players can catch up on their sleep, but
they've got their work cut out for them.
Halfway through SEC competition, they
have more to work on than ever if they are
going to claim the SEC championship for
the 17th year in a row.
The Gators had several match points
they did not captialize on during the loss,
and sophomore libero Elyse Cusack knows
the team has to end games in those situa-
tions.
"I think that's what we need to work on
having that sense of urgency," Cusack
said. "OK, we have game point, let's not
lose five straight points."
Practice should be more intense this
week, Cusack said, and the team will prac-
tice harder because they don't want to feel
the pain of losing another match.
Still, the team knows the loss isn't the
end of the world. With half their conference


schedule to go, the Gators are still in good
position to win the conference.
"Now we have a week to regroup and
just really focus on the second part of [the]
SEC and making sure that we don't let that
happen again," McCray said.
Statistically, the Gators are the best team
in the conference.
They lead the SEC in five of eight statisti-
cal categories the conference tracks, includ-
ing kills per game, hitting percentage and
assists per game.

"1I think that's what we need to
work on having that sense of
urgency,"
Elyse Cusack
UF libero


Even in the loss, the team did better than
Arkansas in points scored, digs, blocks, ser-
vice aces and hitting percentage. The teams
tied in kills and assists.
But when the Gators come to town, sta-
tistics don't matter.
"I think one thing we've had to realize is
that we can't look at a team's record when-
ever we play," McCray said. "That all goes
out the window when they play Florida.
Everyone brings their 'A' game."
The second half of the season starts
Friday night. The Gators are more focused
than they have been, and they look to con-
tinue their growth.
"I think we're at a good point right now,"
Cusack said. "I think that this is where we're
going to have to turn it around and kind of
show what we're made of."

CECCHINI READY TO PLAY: After injuring her
neck last Wednesday before practice and sit-
ting out the Gators' previous two matches,
sophomore setter Alli Cecchini is OK to
play this weekend.
"She may have a little bit of lingering
soreness," UF coach Mary Wise said. "She's
been cleared to play, cleared to practice."


Lucas motivated by father


* JOHN LUCAS PLAYED
14 YEARS IN THE NBA.

By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
dklein@alligator.org

It may come as no surprise
that UF freshman Jai Lucas
has no idea how to make a
Big Mac.
What may shock, though,
is just how close he was to
learning.
In the summer of 2003,
after spending many hot
Houston days melting into
the couch, his father, John
Luems II, gave Lucas a life-
changing ultimatum.
"He wasn't just going to
lie around here and play vid-
eo games all day," said John
Lucas II, a former NBA player
and coach. "He was going to
learn how to play basketball,
and if he wasn't, I told him he
was going to have to go get a
job at McDonald's."


The irony of the situation
came full circle for Lucas
last March, when the speedy
guard participated in the 2007
McDonald's All-American
Games as a representative of
Bellaire (Texas) High School.
Getting to that point,
however, wasn't easy. When
Lucas first
5^ heard this
plan, his
father can
Men's remember
Basketball having to
deal with his
son's com-
plaints and disapproval.
"Well, it sure wasn't like
a fish jumping into water,"
Lucas II said. "He was just
dead tired at first. But he
knew he had to learn."
The regiment bore more
similarities to a high-octane
boot camp than it did to the
game of basketball. Lucas and
his father woke up at 6 every
morning to begin intense
drills.


The 5-foot-11 guard wore
a 40-pound vest while he was
forced to convert 500 jump
shots before school. There
would be 250 more jump
shots waiting for him when
he returned home.
"He had to catch up. And
with his small size, I knew he
had to learn to make shots,"
Lucas II said. "I told him,
'If you learn to make shots,
you're going to be just as big
as you want to be.'"
Even with the late start,
the game of basketball came
as second nature to Lucas,
whose family background is
embedded in the world of
hardwood floors and leather
balls.
Lucas II played in the NBA
for 14 years, where he aver-
aged 10.7 points per game for
six different teams. His skills
as a teacher were renowned
as well, and as a coach, he
had four separate stints be-

UF reaches out to fans


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

Good seats weren't hard to come
by for UF women's basketball games
last season.
A disappointing 9-22 record, in-
cluding only two conference wins,
left the O'Connell Center sounding
almost empty by February.
Gators coach Amanda Butler has
been reaching out to the community
in hopes of putting more fans in the
seats this season.
"Our work in the community, our
attempts at outreach, my availability
to go and speak as much as I possi-
bly can as well as my staff, hopefully
we'll see some of that in terms of the
numbers that show up to our ball
games," Butler said.
Looking at attendance numbers
from last season, it appears UF has
nowhere to go but up.


In an arena that holds 12,000,
the Gators averaged just 1,211 fans
at home games, well under the
Southeastern Conference average
of 3,888.
UF's mark even fared worse
than the overall Division-I average
of 1,586.
In fact, the SEC boasted five
schools Tennessee, Kentucky,
LSU, Georgia and
Arkansas that
ranked in the top
50 in home at-
tendance for all of
Division I.
While a high-
volume crowd
Butler is expected, for
powerhouse
Tennessee, somehow even Arkansas
still managed to average more than
2,300 fans a game. The Razorbacks

Freshman determined

to etch his own legacy

HOOPS, from page 16

fore being fired by the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2003.
Lucas's brother John.Lucas III is currently a
member of the Houston Rockets and was the start-
ing guard for an Oklahoma State team that made it
to the Final Four in 2004.
So for the youngest Lucas member, defining
his own legacy is going to take some work. Lucas
should have no problem, though, since according to
his father, he was bom to play this game.
S"Jai has the knack, the gift to
play the point," Lucas II said. "I
think point guards are born, not
made, and I think Jai has the total
package to be a great player."
Lucas is reaping the benefits
of an NBA family in many ways.
Among them is the ability to train
^Lucas with current NBA players, includ-
ing Damon Stoudamire, T.J. Ford
and Sam Cassell.
Due to the high-profile workouts, he never gets
intimated among his peers, Lucas II said.
Lucas II, who worked with NBA stars Kobe
Bryant and Lebron James at young ages, said he
believes his youngest son has shown great strides
since his early playing days.
"Right now, at this age, he's better than the fa-
ther and the older brother," Lucas II said. "But he
still has a long way to go."
Lucas feels he will have the benefit of adjusting
to anything the college game might throw at him.
The freshman said that after dealing with his father,
the rest should fall right into place.
"Growing up around basketball, I'm not over-
whelmed by much," he said. "I just know what to
expect, and I'm prepared for anything."


WHOOPS, from page 16

finished 10th in the league with an
18-13 record and won only three SEC
games, just one more than the Gators.
UF's early home schedule 13
games before the end of the year
- may have a big impact on whether
those numbers will rise this season.
Butler hopes her outreach during
the summer will get people to come
out, but she knows it will take suc-
cess on the court to keep them coming
back.
"What we put out on the floor, the
way that we approach each and every
opportunity to play in front of our
fans, I think is an opportunity for us
to get them to come back," Butler said.
"Everyone that I've spoken to out in
the community, I've told them if they'll
come, then they'll want to come back,
and they won't regret taking the time
to come see us and check us out."
It hasn't just been Butler trying to
reach out to the community.
The entire team was among the
UF athletes participating in the Climb
for Cancer Foundation's annual camp
Saturday morning for children battling
cancer.
The players participated in a num-
ber of sports with the children, includ-
ing soccer, football, basketball and vol-
leyball. Senior guard Depree Bowden
enjoyed the opportunity to help out
those less fortunate.
"We just really wanted to help them
out playing the sports," Bowden said.
"It was touching."
Butler was impressed by her team's
positive attitude at 8 a.m. after a tough
practice Friday night.
"It's something that they know is
very important to me how involved
we get in the community," Butler said.


"It's certainly something I think they one who's struggling with something
enjoy, as well, because they know the as serious as cancer or just a kid who's
position they hold in our community, looking for a more positive role model
and the impact they can have on some- in their life."

Gators to honor Guilford


* THE PLAYERS WILL WEAR STICK-

Members of the Gators football team
plan to honor walk-on quarterback
Michael Guilford by wearing stickers on
their helmets during Saturday's game
against Kentucky.
UF coach Urban Meyer said he let the
players choose what they wanted to do
as a tribute to Guilford, who died early
Friday morning in a motorcycle accident.
"We'll do more down the road,"
Meyer said.
The coach and 10 players attended his
funeral Tuesday morning, which was held
in Guilford's hometown, Blountstown.

Newton is wearing a walking boot,
and if he can't play, Mullen said junior

Tebow has played every offensive

ance against Tennessee
on Sept. 15.

Newton after he had minor sur-

NCAA transfer rules.

Markihe Anderson's season begins
Saturday, hopefully.
UF's top returning cornerback has done
everything but return healthy to the play-
ing field in the first six games.
He made it in for two contests, though
not at 100 percent, leaving one before half-
time due to injury.
After groin and knee problems side-
lined him for two months, the normally
soft-spoken sophomore asserted his inten-
tion for Saturday's game at Kentucky with
determination in his voice.
"I'm going to play," Anderson said. "I'm
more ready to go than I thought I was last
week and the weeks before. I'm out there
flying around in practice and getting back
to my top speed."
Anderson's knee problems started
when he suffered a sprained medial col-
lateral ligament a week before the season
opener against Western Kentucky.
He has since grown attached to a right
knee brace and has been a fixture on the
team's injured list.
"He is getting pretty dose to being
game-ready," UF coach Urban Meyer said.
"He practiced last week and was still a
little limp, but we need to get him back. I
say that every week, we would like to have


him back as soon as we can."
Though he only had eight tackles as
a freshman, Anderson was supposed to
be the veteran presence to help a group
of younger comers transition to the
Southeastern Conference.
Instead, freshman Joe Haden and soph-
omore Wondy Pierre-Louis were thrust
into starting roles.
"He was around so many good
players that taught him well."
Chuck Heater
UF cornerbacks coach

Now that Haden and Pierre-Louis each
have six starts, Anderson's return just adds
to the growing experience in the second-
ary.
"He was around so many good players
that taught him well," cornerbacks coach
Chuck Heater said. "He brings a good at-
titude, a good work ethic and just a little bit
of awareness."
Meyer called Anderson his best corner
two weeks before the Sept. 1 opener against
Western Kentucky.
On the same day, Meyer announced
Anderson had suffered his first setback in
the form of a groin injury.
He improved enough from his MCL

Spread offense evens the field


here's always an equalizer.
Slow basketball players get the

Freakish guys seeking attractive wom-

Now, small, underdog football teams
have the spread offense.
As more and more college teams begin
using spread offenses, the gap between
big, powerhouse teams and smaller, no-
name squads has narrowed.
Teams that lack the size and strength
traditionally needed to win are finding
ways to get their smaller, overlooked
playmakers in space with the spread of-
fense, and the formula is working.
Perhaps that can explain this wild col-
lege football season.
The spread allows teams to stretch the
field and use every inch, meaning they
can rely less on dominating the line of
scrimmage.

This has also

are valued.

sprain to grab the secondary's first interception in a win over
Tennessee in week three.
But his day was done by halftime, as he suffered a sprained
posterior cruciate ligament in the same knee, putting him
right back on the shelf.
"I felt like I wasn't myself," Anderson
< said. "I was almost out of there, almost all
the way back."
The latest injury forced Anderson to sit
out the last three games, including losses
to Auburn and LSU.
While Tun Tebow tried to engineer a
game-winning drive in the final minute
Anderson at LSU, Anderson could only sit helplessly
on an exercise bike.
"Going from a starter to not playing at all, it's just hard for
me to watch," Anderson said.
He has spent more time on the field with his secondary
mates this week, splitting time as the third corner in practice.
He hopes that translates to game action as the Gators open
the second half of their season.
"I'm finally getting rid of the injuries," Andefson said.
"The middle of the season will be the start of my season."

Odds are he will become a dy-
namic playmaker for the Gators in
the next few years by running end-
arounds, short slants and screens,
where his blazing speed can be
utilized.
Other Gators, such as Jarred
Fayson and Chris Rainey, fit this
mold and can be plugged into the
spread with ease.
The rise of the spread offense has
also evolved the defenses, which
must counter with speedy defensive
backs.

now a starter.
Was it because of his footwork,
judgment and hands? No, it was for
the blinding speed he gained while
chasing goats as a child.
Obviously Pierre-Louis has im-
proved since his arrival in all aspects
of his game, but his most important
asset is his speed and ability to keep
up with quick wideouts.
To see what happens to a team
that doesn't recruit defensive backs
who fit that mold, take a look at
Michigan, which suffered back-
to-back embarrassing losses to
Appalachian State and Oregon to
open its season.
Both teams ran spread offenses
against the Wolverines and had no
trouble moving the ball en route to
wins.


Troy has given its big-name
opponents fits in the past with the
spread offense, as well.
For UF coach Urban Meyer, a
longtime fan of the spread, seeing
the influx of teams to the offense
is fun.
"It's amazing to see how much
of it is all out there," he said. "In
the 1980s, it was all very basic.
Then all of sudden, you saw teams
having some success. You can see
Appalachian State and Oreg6n are
hard to defend. I enjoy watching
those two. I'm surprised it hasn't
leaked to the NFL a little bit."
Some pro teams have begun
to utilize spread-like attacks, and
Gators fans can only hope Meyer
won't leak into the NFL along with
his offense.
