By DEVIN CULCLASURE
With thrashing guitars, soar-

moves, UF and Gainesville
entertainers battled each other
Thursday night in front of 800
spectators for the right to per-
form at Gator Growl.
More than 60 acts were nar-

dance group and band/vocal
Brooke Helvie, a UF freshman,
took first place in the soloist cat-
egory for her performance of
country hits "Crazy" and "Here

Wal-Mart closing worries some
Plans are in works
for a supercenter
By APRIL DUDASH
Plans for a new Wal-Mart Supercenter may bring
economic benefits to some people, but others are wor-
ried it might affect their businesses.
As plans for the new supercenter on US-441 and
Northwest 34th Street take shape, so do plans to shut
down the Wal-Mart on Northwest 13th Street.
Brent Christensen, Gainesville Area Chamber of
Commerce president, said the new supercenter would
be beneficial to the surrounding area.
"It will certainly offer another strong retail option
for those communities," Christensen said.
Despite the potential for economic benefits, the plan
to shut down the Wal-Mart on Northwest 13th Street
has caused economic anxiety for some surrounding

Lawmakers give UF less
By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
It's no secret that Florida's public universities, including
UF, are grappling with massive budget shortfalls.
The state lottery is often touted as a major aid for higher
education. The program, which says it boasts a commitment
to education, gave about $1.5 billion to the state Legislature
this year. Lawmakers can divide up education funding any
way they want.
"We probably have one of the most efficient
lottery systems in the country. But I'm one of the
first ones who asks, 'Can we squeeze any more
out of it?'"
The contribution from the state lottery only makes up 6.6
percent of the state's $23.5 billion education budget.
Additionally, the lottery's yearly contribution to the
Legislature makes up 31 percent of the program's total rev-
Because of legislative budget cuts this year, UF got about
$20 million less in lottery contributions than in 2006. This
amount excludes the Bright Futures Scholarship Program.
Legislators assert the lottery was never meant to fully
fund education, said Rep. Frank Attkisson, a Republican in
charge of the House of Representatives council that oversees
Lottery officials affirm the lottery is completely geared
toward raising educational dollars, and it's up to the
Legislature to decide exactly where its revenue goes.
"We probably have one of the most efficient lottery sys-
tems in the country," Attkisson said. "But I'm one of the first
ones who asks, 'Can we squeeze any more out of it?'"

Tuition in Florida is about $2,000 less than the national
average of $5,836. As a result, Florida ranks nearly last in terms

Grad student shoots for world record with eyelash
* STUART MULLER HAS A
By BRIANA O'SULLIVAN
Alligator Contributing Writer
It is hard to look Stuart Muller
in the eye.
Instead, most people stare at
the UF agricultural and biologi-
cal engineering doctoral student's
wiry, almost 2.6-inch long white
He hopes the hair on his left
upper eyelid will give him the
Guinness World Record for the
world's longest eyelash.
The current record, held by
Jolie Matzes as of July 2006, is 6.4
centimeters (2.52 inches), accord-
ing to an e-mail sent to Muller by
Guinness World Records.
He only has to turn in the prop-
er paperwork to the fact-finding
agency to clinch the record.
Muller attributes his ability to
grow a hair so long to a "mutant
follicle" on his eyelid.
"It's such an idiosyncratic
thing," Muller said, "people start
to associate me as the guy with the
Muller, who has been growing
the eyelash for more than a year,
said he first got the idea while flip-
ping through "The Guinness Book
of World Records" with friends,
and he realized he could realisti-
cally break the record.
But over the year, he said, the
greatest hazard in trying to break
the world record has been helpful
Often, people will approach
him with the good intention of get-
ting a hair out of his eye, he said.
Then, he has to quickly reach out
and grab their hands to stop them
from ruining what could be a re-
"I got pulled over and the cop
was like 'Oh, there's a hair in your
eye,'" he said.
He said people are usually very
apologetic when they realize the
importance of the lash, and then
they get "weirded out" by it.
To avoid the potentially hazard-
ous attention, Muller often wears
sunglasses out in public.
In the past, the eyelash "has
been burnt, plucked out, other
people have plucked it out," he
said. "One person sat on my chest
and plucked it out for a trophy."
The eyelash was singed on one
occasion while he was drinking
a flaming alcoholic shot called a
psychopath. At the end of the shot,
the drinker is supposed to blow
through a straw to produce a small
fireball in the drinker's face.
Muller woke up the next day
to fuzzy memories and a much
shorter, crispier eyelash.
"It's bizarre," said Kari
MacLauchlin, Muller's friend of
four years. "I don't think I've ever
known anyone who's gone for a
record. It's the novelty of it; it's
MacLauchlin, a doctoral stu-
dent at UF, said the general con-
sensus among Muller's friends is
that the eyelash is annoying and
hard to look at.
She admitted to trying to pluck
it out on occasions, joking that she
will probably cut the hair off while
MacLauchlin said when she
and the rest of Muller's friends
heard about his re-
Student cord-breaking hopes,

for him. They feared
that the hair would stop growing,
so they told him to take hair, nail
and skin vitamin supplements.

tion and have a goal not school
related," MacLauchlin said.
Muller said his earliest memo-
ries of growing out the eyelash
are when he was 8 years old in
his hometown of Durban, South
Africa. He would grow out the hair
purposely to irritate people.
When he was 11 years old,
Muller said, he grew the lash the
longest it has ever been about 9
centimeters (3.5 inches) long.
No one else in Muller's family
has the ability to grow an eyelash
so long, and he has never met any-
one else with the same ability.
An e-mail sent to him by
Guinness World Records says
that when he has the eyelash mea-
sured, it has to be wet because that
is when the hair would be at its

nessed by two people of standing

doctor or mayor, the agency will

Muller will then receive a
certificate stating that he is the
current record holder but with no
guarantee of making it into "The
Guinness Book of World Records."
Once all is said and done, he
said, he plans to throw a party
with friends. The theme of the
party will be world records.
"It's done its duty," Muller said,
explaining that he has no intention
of growing the eyelash out to such
an extreme length again.
He said he had promised
MacLauchlin the honor of pluck-
ing out the lash, though he has
considered auctioning the privi-
"Not to inflate the whole issue,"
Muller said, laughing. "It's just an
eyelash at the end of the day."
Protesters talk to Machen
By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
Five student protesters met with UF
President Bernie Machen for about 45
minutes Thursday morning to discuss the
University Police Department's policies
following the Tasering of Andrew Meyer.
Chelsea Solmo, a UF neuroscience ma-
jor, said protesters wanted Machen to or-
ganize and attend an open student forum
to discuss Tasers on campus.
- The group's main goal is to implement
a temporary ban on campus Taser use dur-
ing the investigation, Solmo said.
She said she was aware that Machen
created a panel last month to investigate
and revise UF's policies on Taser use.
The panel met for the first time Monday
night and was met with only 15 attendees.
Solmo said she wasn't there.
She and other protesters don't support
the current panel because it doesn't have
adequate student representation, she said.
The panel is made of four students,
four faculty members and one faculty
"The people who were most concerned
and present at the demonstrations' asked
to be on the committee," she said, adding
that those students were not included.
Solmo said the group is pushing for its
own panel because they want to make sure
She and the other
protesters didn't attend
Monday's panel forum
because they were noti-
fied about it too late.
Solmo said protest-
ers also called for a

she didn't know who
would conduct the study.
If Tasers are proven to be safe, "there's
no reason why they shouldn't be used,"
said Ben Dictor, a UF political science
junior who also attended the Thursday
Dictor said Machen liked the idea of a
student forum, and the group's requests
were well received.

Oh, what a week. We hope you're finally done with all
your awful midterms, papers and the other stuff that's been
keeping you from going out and having a good time. So take
this weekend to sit back and have a few (or more than a few;
we won't judge) drinks. Go on. You deserve it. Just make sure
you're sober enough to read this week's intoxicating edition
Darts & Laurels
We start off with an it's-all-fun-and-games-until-the-keg-
is-dry DART to all the protesters who were outraged after
the Andrew Meyer Taser incident last month but didn't
show up at the forum held to address exactly that. We can't
imagine why those students had such a change of heart.
Maybe the protesters realized they really didn't have
much to say. Maybe they just protested for the attention
but couldn't be bothered to attend a more structured event
- one where people were actually there to take into ac-
count how everyone felt about the event. Everyone can pro-
test until they're blue in the face, but no one can expect it
to be the be-all and end-all of effecting change. And no one
can expect everything to happen in the heat of the moment.
The number of attendees at the policy forum undoubtedly
spoke louder than all the so-called free-speech protesters.
Up next, we raise our tallboys for a finally-a-cause-we-
can-drink-for LAUREL for the Booze for Boobs fundraiser
held to benefit the Susan G. Komen for the Cure organiza-
tion. Hell, if we're gonna get drunk, it might as well be for
a good reason, right? Then you can actually say, "Man, this
hangover was worth it."
Sure, drinking isn't good for our livers, but it is also a
factor contributing to breast cancer. Sad, we know, but that
won't stop us from giving a sweeter-words-were-never-
spoken LAUREL to Saturday's Greater Gator Beer Festival,
which will feature beers from around the world, as well as
tons of food. Not like we need an excuse to get drunk, but
all we can drink for $20? We're there. There's no better or
more economical way to try all those beers you were too
afraid to buy because they were costly and you weren't sure
if you'd like them. Oh, who are we kidding? We never met
a beer we didn't like.'
Just be sure if you go to arrange for a designated driver.
Or take advantage of the LAUREL-worthy tow-and-go ser-
vices offered by Ultimate Towing and Burkhardt Sales and
Service (a Budweiser distributor), free of charge for anyone
who's had too much to drink to drive that means you.
Here we have a this-strawberry-daiquiri-was-made-
for the Union Street Farmers' Market, which debuted this
week in its new, larger location. The market will now be
held at the Downtown Community Plaza. With more space,
the market can accommodate more vendors and hopefully
We think the move was a wise one. With the weather
cooling down, this will be a great place for students and ev-
eryone to go buy some fresh veggies and take in a few songs
before heading out for a night on the town. Who knew
downtown was more than just the restaurants and bars?
Finally, we have a you-can't-have-your-beer-and-drink-
it-too DART for the Florida Lottery System. UF's appropri-
ations from the lotto went down by more than $20 million
this year. The program was created to supplement Florida's
education system, including Bright Futures and all levels of
Florida's public schools.
But the share of the lotto going toward education the
whole reason we have the lotto has gone down, while
the prizes keep getting bigger. Ticket sales are dwindling.
Meanwhile, Bright Futures is crumbling and students are
being forced to pay fees and tuition not covered by the
scholarship that was designed just for that. It's a safe bet
that the lotto system isn't working how it was designed to.
All this is making us thirsty for another drink.

Halloween brings feelings of nostalgia
H alloween is a couple of weeks away, wb.ch means
now is the time to start thinking abou: what we
want to be on that very special day.
Halloween has always been one of the best holidays
of the year, but celebrating it in college is different than it
used to be when we were kids.
Over the years, the jack-o'-lanterns, glow-in-the-dark
spider webs and spooky sound effects have slowly been
replaced with skanky costumes and Hunch Punch.
Don't get me wrong I love Halloween parties as
much as the next person. It's just that college students
seem to have forgotten the true spirit of Halloween.
Let's take a trip to a more innocent time a time when
our costumes were more than just underwear and body
paint and when we dressed up in homemade costumes of
our favorite, fully-clothed Power Ranger.
Figuring out what we wanted to be was still fun back
then, but the real fun was trick-or-treating around the
neighborhood with friends.
I don't know about you, but in the years before beer
pong, the mounds of free candy were the best part of
I'm not one to brag, but I will admit that I was pretty
skillful at getting the most candy, mainly because I treated
trick or treating like a covert military operation. It didn't
matter if I had to suffer through rain, cold weather or blis-
tered feet I was absolutely determined to fill my entire
bag (or pillow case) with hundreds of delicious goodies
my mom would never let me eat otherwise.
After a few years of trick-or-treating in the same neigh-
borhood, I could usually predict which houses to hit and
which ones to skip. The best houses were the ones that
gave out king-sized candy bars or those goody bags filled
with different types of candy.
And of course, the worst
houses were the ones that gave out

and, most horrifying of all, tooth-
Colleen Shea After a long night of scurry-
firstname.lastname@example.org ing from house to house, I would
come home and take inventory
of the massive bag of candy I ac-
quired in the span of a few hours. I usually separated and
counted each piece of candy and then ranked it by order

After sorting and ranking the sweets, I would set up
trade agreements with my brother and sister. "I'll give
you five Tootsie Rolls for one Snickers," I would try to
negotiate. "Six, and it's a deal" was my older sister's usual
response. She was a pretty savvy 7-year-old.
One thing really scared me about Halloween, though.
The haunted houses, ghost stories and cackling witches
were pretty spooky, but nothing compared to my mom's
warnings to watch out for needles and razors that might
be lurking in my chocolate bars.
Oh, Halloween. What a great holiday. It's doubtful any-
one really knows why we celebrate it, but it's great that we
do. And this year, if you are stressing over which costume
to choose or which liquor to buy, just relax, and remember
that the party is just half the fun. The other half is being
able to act like a kid again.

Alcohol was a bad choice for fundraiser

fensive to those of us who work in the field
of breast-cancer care.
Alcohol is a well-known risk factor in the
development of breast cancer, and the focus
should be on educating women about this
very preventable risky behavior.
October is breast-cancer awareness

Abortions mean taking the easy way out
I would like to thank UF Campus NOW
for its glowing column regarding the ben--
efits and conveniences abortions offer to
After reading the column, I have never
been so distraught in my life. How can
people possibly take a position as callous
and insensitive as Claire Beach and her
organization's? We are all alive and able to
enjoy the good and the bad things of life, as
well as able to argue either side of the mat-
ter. This comes from the simple fact that each
and every one of our mothers decided not to
abort us. Would you want to be aborted?
The answer any reasonably conscien-
tious individual would respond with is a
We all deserve a chance at life and the op-
portunity to experience things such as find-
ing love, getting an education and enjoying
a football game. There are alternatives ex-
pecting mothers can turn to rather than the
Draconian prospect of an abortion.
To take the easy way out of something
that is the foundation of life would be an
insult to our mothers, who endured all the
hardships imagineable just so we could
enter this world and be able to someday
express our thanks.
UF Campus NOW would want us to
believe that having a baby would inconve-
nience the educational career of the woman.
I am not disputing that at all, as that would
be very true.
However, resources are available that
other organizations offer to women to help
them through such times.
Unless a woman's life-is in critical dan-
ger, an abortion should never be considered.
If the reason for having an abortion is any-
thing other than saving the life of the moth-
er, no other justification exists to terminate
the life and all the possible contributions
that life would make to this world.
After experiencing college life, meeting
all sorts of new people and the fun things
at UF, would you want to be aborted?
Everything you have experienced would
never have existed. While you may answer
the question with a yes or a no, unfortu-
nately, some do not have that option.
Choosing to have an abortion is selfish
I'm writing in response to the guest col-
umn on abortion. A few completely obvious
points were forgotten.
I understand the idea that women lose
career opportunities during a nine-month
pregnancy and that time is "lost" raising a
. But raising a child and molding a human
being from an infant into an adult is infi-
nitely more important than earning a degree
or advancing a career.
I have never heard of a more selfish
choice than people murdering (yes, abortion
is a form of legal murder) a child so they
could finish their degree, advance their ca-
reer or any other self-serving, nonfatal goal.
If people don't want the responsibility a
pregnancy brings, then they shouldn't have
sex. There are other ways to have the same
pleasure without the dangers of conception.
How does someone place something non-
life-threatening ahead of someone else's
One last counterpoint is that women and
men can earn their degrees or advance their
career, or do almost anything else later in
The idea that the value of a child's life
is so low should boggle everyone's minds.
Think if your parents valued their own ca-
reers more than they value you.

Top education official
meets UF students
* HAPPFNSTANCF *
By DEVIN CULCLASURE
A top-ranking U.S. education
official visited UF on Thursday
afternoon, asking students to reach
out to middle and high school stu-
dents who might think college is a
possibility for them.
Sara Martinez Tucker, under
secretary for the U.S. Department
of Education, spoke to about 20 UF
students in the Reitz Union.
Martinez Tucker said she is re-
sponsible for helping implement
education Secretary Margaret
Spellings' Action Plan for Higher
Education, which calls for expand-
ing the accessibility, affordability
and accountability of higher edu-
cation in the U.S.
As part of this duty, she is trav-
eling to college campuses across
the country to hear students'
opinions on their higher-education
A camera crew accompanied
her to UF to prepare a video aimed
at changing the views of middle
school and high school students
who don't think they're "college
Martinez Tucker said she chose
UF as a tour stop after UF Student
Government representatives vis-
ited her in Washington, D.C., dur-
ing June and started a "raucous
debate" on education.
"I'm here because your student
representatives gave me a lot of
energy," she said. "They took me
She asked UF students to de-
scribe why they chose to attend
college, how they decided on a
university, what types of family
and school support helped them in
the process and how they paid for
"You're going to be my stars,"
Martinez Tucker said. "Tell me
the struggles an existing college
student faces. I need you to inspire
hundreds, maybe thousands of
kids around the states."
Martinez Tucker added that
one of her goals is revising the Free
Application for Federal Student
Martinez Tucker said she was
hoping to start
the process in
8th grade with
a few basic

sible" amount of
Martinez Tucker federal aid avail-
able to them.
Questions in 10th grade would
be more extensive and give stu-
dents a "probable" amount of aid,
and then more questions during
their senior year would provide a
"predictable" amount, she said.
Students were then asked
to close the meeting by looking
straight into the video camera and
offering advice to potential college
"To the youth in America, you
are so lucky to be going to school
in this great country," said UF
student Jordan Loh. "You have
not only the ability, but the duty to
reach as high as you can."
On Wednesday attemoon. Laura Ellis climbed
the 11 flights of stairs that twist up the gut of the
Century Tower to serenade passersby with three
It is a httle-known fact that the top of Century
Tower, the powerful World War I and World War
H memorial that pierces the sky from the heart of
campus, houses one of only four carillons in the
state of Flonda, said Ellis, an associate professor
in the School of Music. Though the 157-foot-tall
tower was finished in 1956, the $200,00( canrlon
was not installed until 1979.
UF's canllon is a fully mechanical instrument
composed of 61 finely tuned bronze bells that are
affixed to the top interior of Century Tower. The
bells are connected by rods, known as "clavier,"
to 61 keys called "batons" that are arranged like
piano keys and played by hand. At the player's
feet rest 25 pedals that ring separate bells. The
playing arrangement is concealed in a small
room below the bells.
Ellis. in addition to her role as a carillonneur,
teaches a carillon class that gives students the op-
porturunty to play the carnilon of Century Tower
Rectals are given almost every day between
12 35 p.m. and 12'50 p m. Songs include dassical
selections such as Gian-Carlo Menoth's "Prelude
from Six Compositons for Canroon" and more
light-hearted tunes such as Richard NIM. Sherman
and Robert Sherman's "Chim Chim Chef-ee"
from the movie musical "Mary Poppi.ns."
Ellis recently traveled to Australia to give
performances and explore the three canllons in
'"My first few teaching jobs I really didn't
have the opportunity to play very much," Ellis
said after her performance Wednesday "When I
got here I was really excited because this is a re-
ally nice instrument."

Lotto looks for ways to bring in more education funding within constraints
LU I I HL Y, from Page 1
of student-teacher ratios, stated documents
from Florida's Board of Governors the State
University System's highest governing body.
Tuition is only supposed to pay for about
one-fourth of students' education fees at
public universities, the board stated. The rest
should come from state funding.
At the end of a 10-day special session Oct.
12, the Legislature cut $400 million from state's
public schools, community colleges and uni-
It trimmed $22.1 million from UF's budget
UF President Bernie Machen said he thinks
the lottery is one revenue source that could be
tweaked to bring more money to UF.
"Higher education needs a dedicated
source of revenue so we're not subject to the
whims of Florida's economy," Machen said.
The lottery was created by a constitutional
amendment in 1986 to support public K-12
schools, school construction bonds, state com-
munity colleges and universities, and other
financial aid. Its budget is about $4 billion.
More than half the total revenue is used
for prizes, advertising and other operating
expenses, and the rest is used for education.
"Our mandate is to generate money for
education, period," said Jackie Barreiros,
Florida lottery spokeswoman. "Honestly, it's
the cornerstone of everything."
Barreiros said the lottery continues to
search for ways to bring in more educational
funds within the restraints of legislative stat-
The lottery has recently reduced its number
of paid employees, introduced several new
games and increased the number of lottery-
ticket retailers across the state from 13,000 to
"But that's where it ends," Barreiros said.
"It's kind of a double-edged sword. It's a
wonderful thing we do, but we're limited in
Clutching the purse strings
Attkisson, the state representative in charge
of the House's lottery council, said it's unlikely
the Legislature would make the lottery con-
tribute a higher percentage to education.
He said he still has ideas to maximize its
Florida is one of seven states that do not
collect income tax. Revenue from other sourc-
es, such as tourism, sales taxes and property
taxes, are expected to make up the difference.
In the past few years, property values have
risen dramatically, causing property taxes to
Florida residents appealed to the govern-
ment for financial relief. A promise for that
respite came a few months ago from Gov.
Charlie Crist, when he asked the Legislature
to reduce the taxes.
w Since the Legislature's
revenue from property
taxes is dwindling, it must
depend on sales tax for
much of its revenue.
I rates in Florida are crip-
crist plingly high for many
low-income residents, dis-
suading them from spending extra money and
stripping the Legislature of revenue it needs to
fund institutions such as state universities.
Until people have enough disposable'
income to gamble it on lottery tickets, the
amount of lotto funding for education prob-
ably won't increase dramatically, he said.
Low income, high stakes
While members of low-income groups
are more likely to buy lottery tickets, most of
Florida's citizens who attend state universities
and benefit from the funding belong to higher-
income groups, Attkisson said. .
"We're robbing Peter to pay Paul," he said.
"We take from the poor and give to the rich."
That trend is not likely to change, he
Attkisson said the best way to increase
educational funding from the lottery would
be to encourage low-income individuals to
buy more tickets instead of changing the
"That's what the lottery is all about," he
said. "It's a chance for hope. And who wants
more hope? Affluent people don't have the
need for hope."
Bright Futures doesn't consider the income
of its recipients.
The program is completely funded by the
The possibility of privatizing the lottery
has been suggested to generate more educa-
tion revenue by hiring a private company to
create even more games and sell more tickets,
but the Legislature probably won't shift in that
way, Attkisson said.
If it wanted to expand the lottery, the
Legislature could do so on its own, he said.
To him, the ethical costs of promoting
more lottery participation outweigh monetary
"We probably have enough of an appetite
for gambling," he said.

Fossil project needs volunteers
By KRISTIN NORTON
Alligator Contributing Writer
If you haven't signed up for the
Tapir Challenge yet, the Florida
Museum of Natural History has a
bone to pick with you.
The museum's Division of
Vertebrate Paleontology needs vol-
unteers as it conducts a major fossil
excavation about two miles north-
east of Newberry from Tuesday to
Dr. Richard Hulbert, the mu-
seum's vertebrate paleontology
collections manager, said that the
Tapir Challenge is an effort to col-
lect as many fossils as possible at
the site, which is called Haile 7G.
The excavation is called a "chal-
lenge" because the Gainesville site
and a site in Tennessee have been in
a competition to see which can find
the most tapirs, he said.
The tapir specimens, the most
common find at the site, are from
about 2 million years ago, during
the Pliocene Epoch, Hulbert said.
Fossils of more than 70 indi-
vidual tapirs have been found
in Gainesville, Hulbert said, and
hundreds of other fossils, such as
fish, frogs and snakes, have also
been dug up.
Hulbert said he would still like
to find some more rare or unusual
"It is a great opportunity to
learn how to dig for fossils
professionally, and you
don't even need previous
geology graduate student
He calls the excavation a sal-
vage operation because there is "a
limited amount of time to recover
as many fossils as possible" due to
erosion and mining that will soon
take over the site.
Between September 2006 and
May, 320 volunteers contributed
more than 4,100 hours at the site,
according to the museum's Web
Rachel Wendt, a third-year
graduate student in geology, said
that fossils help geologists learn
more about individual species,
determine the ages of certain areas
and rocks and understand what life
was like in the past.
Wendt has collected fossils
at many locations including
Newfoundland and New Mexico,
but not at Haile 7G yet. She is
considering volunteering there this
"It is a great opportunity to learn
how to dig for fossils professionally,
and you don't even need previous
training," she said. "Most people go
to school for more than four years
to get to do this stuff.".
Hulbert said he depends on vol-
unteers to get as much manpower
in the field as possible.
Volunteers will be assigned
to different areas from 9 a.m. to
4:30 p.m. every day except for the
Thanksgiving holiday on Nov. 22
to Nov. 23.

struggled with the decision to dismiss UF for a chance
to compete at Ohio State.
"I was really close," Tyus said. "I was less than

didn't. I always wanted to go to Florida. Since I lived
in Cincinnati, I took a lot of trips up to Ohio State.

"I always liked Coach (Billy) Donovan's style of

In July 2005, Tyus participated in the Reebok Big

ber of the D1 Greyhounds, a team that featured cur-
rent Southern California freshman O.J. Mayo.
On a marquee Friday-night matchup, Tyus' squad
squared off against the Spiece Indy Heat, a team com-
prised of a slew of talent, including current NBA play-
ers Mike Conley Jr., Daequan Cook and Oden.
Tyus, at 6-foot-8, drew the assignment of the 7-

Tyus' team would lose 73-67, but he remained opti-
mistic about his performance.
"(Oden's) team was so good he didn't have to do
much," Tyus said. "I just had to concentrate on keep-
ing him from getting the ball and offensive rebounds.
I did pretty good."
Tyus' decision to come to Gainesville will prove
vital for the Gators. One of the most notable problem
areas for the team is in the frontcourt, where a lack of
an inside presence is likely to haunt
the young squad.
Donovan said Tyus is sure to see

beating Marreese up and down the court all the time,
but you have to give him his credit."
Tyus and the rest of the Gators will have a chance
to showcase their talent Sunday when they host Fan

UF VOLLEYBALLss motivates Gators
First loss motivates Gators
By EVAN DREXLER
The Gators are still mad about losing to
Arkansas, and Auburn happens to be the unfor-
tunate team in their path.
The No. 10 UF volleyball team (16-1, 9-1
Southeastern Conference) heads to Auburn to-
day at 8 p.m. to play for the first time since their
loss last week.
UF also plays at Georgia on Sunday at 2 p.m.,
and the Gators are more than ready to get back
into the win column.
"Friday can't come soon enough," senior op-
posite hitter Amber McCray said. "Especially
coming after a loss, the first thing you want to
do is get back in the gym and get to play an-
other team. So I'm definitely excited about this
UF coach Mary Wise doesn't expect there to
be any lack of effort from her players this week-
"If we aren't more motivated, I'll check the
heart rate," Wise said. "We certainly can't wait
to play again, get it out of our system."
The Tigers (10-11, 2-8 SEC) took UF to four
games at Auburn last season, but they are cur-

- the team learned its lesson last week.
"I don't think going to Auburn or Georgia
are any different than going away at Arkansas,"
Wise said. "There have been years where there
was a gap between Florida and the rest of the
league. We could go on the road and not play
well and still win. That's not 2007. That's just

span of 25 straight matches. Wise also holds a
23-0 record against the Tigers during her tenure
The Gators played four road matches in
a row earlier this season, and both match-
es this weekend are also away from the
O'Connell Center's comfortable surroundings.
The strain of competing in enemy territory is
weighing on sophomore libero Elyse Cusack.

the heart rate. We certainly can't wait

UF has already played both of this weekend's
opponents this season, sweeping the Tigers on
Sept. 16 in Gainesville and downing Georgia on
Sept. 14 by a score of 3-1.
Georgia (13-7, 4-6 SEC) is home to powerful
attacker Maria Taylor.
Taylor leads the SEC in kills (347), kills per
game (4.89) and is 10th in the conference in
blocks per game with 1.18.
Even though UF held her to only 10 kills in
four games in September, the Gators won't let
their guard down come Sunday.
"I think we're just going to keep getting bet-
ter," McCray said. "We're still in the middle of
the season, definitely haven't peaked yet. ..:

Anderson, who was sup-

cracked the starting lineup yet
because of groin and knee prob-

Meanwhile, UF's receiving

Senior Andre Caldwell and
sophomore Riley Cooper
have been playing through
injuries, but both expect to be
fully healthy for the first time in

Women travel to Georgia for ITA South Regionals
By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
The UF women's tennis team is
on the rise, much to the delight of
Coach Roland Thomqvist.
Thomqvist said the Gators'
improvement is a result of facing
tough competition each week, and
he hopes it will all pay off down the
road during tournament play.
"I think we really turned a comer
as a team this week," Thornqvist
The players must demonstrate
their improved play Saturday at
the ITA South Regionals in Athens,
Ga., if they want to advance to the
ITA National Intercollegiate Indoor
Championships in two weeks.
The event lasts until Tuesday.
During Thomqvist's six-year ten-
ure at UF, the coach has had players
advance to the indoor champion-
ships every year.
"It's a great opportunity for us,"
he said. "It's obviously going to be a
tremendous challenge for us to have
somebody go deep, but ... I think
we have players that are playing
very well and competing well."
Thomqvist will experiment with
the doubles teams this weekend,
hoping to find the right chemistry.
Senior Diana Srebrovic will pair
up with fellow senior Whitney
Benik. They will make up the top
doubles team, but the .ter pairings
have not been determined yet.
Thomqvist said the players are
looking forward to this tournament
because it is one of the three biggest
events of the year.
He noted that the competition
will be very strong at the top but a
little weaker at the bottom.
"Once we get to the quarters and
on in this tournament this week,
you're going to play pretty much
the same level of players you saw
deep in the tournament two weeks
ago," he said.
The men's tennis team will also
be in action this weekend.
They will travel to Lexington,
Ky., for the ITA Regional Indoor
Qualifying, which lasts until
The players will try to qualify

matchup after holding its annual

The meet's long course will help
prepare athletes from both teams for
the upcoming Olympic trials.
Caroline Burckle is UF's lone

Michigan boasts four on their roster,
three men and one woman.
Matt Patton, Scott Pann and Alex
Vanderkaay all made the national
team in their respective events.
Emily Brunemann will represent
Michigan and Club Wolverine.
The most anticipated women's
matchup is between Brunemann
and Burckle in the 800-meter free-
style as both swimmers were named
to the national team in the event.
Burckle is currently ranked third
in the event with a time of 8:35.10,
which she set in her gold-medal
performance at the Pan American
Brunnemann is ranked sixth
with a time of 8:39.57 that she set at
the World Swimming Grand Prix.
The UF women boast an
undefeated record against the
During last season's opener at
Michigan, Burckle recorded, three
NCAA provisional times, and Leah
Retrum returned from a 15-month
layoff to earn first place in the 200

The men have not shared the
same success. Last season marked
the first time the Gators defeated the
Wolverines since 2000.
Tobias Work will likely face off
against Patton in the 400-meter free.
The duo earned medals in the
event in the Pan American games
Work took the silver and Patton
finishing ahead of him for the gold.

Leading off with a 38-22
record is Bryan "I'm not secure
enough in my manhood to
name my fantasy team 'Lola

esteem took a big hit recently
when he realized the song he

Tebow: UF emotionally ready to respond to losses
FOOTBALL, from page 23
The two teams have been heading in
different directions as of late.
The Wildcats are coming off a triple-
overtime victory against then-No. 1 LSU.
Meanwhile, the Gators have lost two
straight games, falling to Auburn and
LSU. Still, some things never change.
Despite going on the road against
trec No. 8 team in the country, the reel-
ing Gators are favored to win by about a
Caldwell agrees with the assessment
of the oddsmakers.
"They're on the rise and getting bet-
ter every year, but Florida is the power-
house of the SEC, and
we have too much skill
and talent to be losing
to them," he said.
Kentucky came close
to breaking the streak in
2002 and again in 2003
but came up short.

lead in the fourth quarter, but the Gators
scored 21 unanswered points to earn a
For both UF and Kentucky, a lot more
than just the streak will be on the line.
Both teams are very much in the mix
to win the wide-open SEC East.
The winner of Saturday's game will
have a clear leg up on the other in the
race. The Gators will also be trying to
avoid picking up a third straight loss.
"It's hard to bounce back from a loss
- especially two in a row but our
team has done a good job with that," UF
sophomore quarterback Tim Tebow said.
"The guys are working hard and getting
ready for Kentucky, so I think we'll be
fine emotionally bouncing back."

national title this season, but next
year the Gators will point to this
game as their turning point.
They're playing a highly
ranked team on the road, and this
Gators team is too determined not
to find a way to win.
Kentucky fans should enjoy to-
day, because they are not going to
be smiling come Saturday night.

Gators look to keep streak over UK alive
By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Staff Writer
Kentucky not only has home-
field advantage heading into
Saturday's matchup against
UF, but the Wildcats also have a
clear edge in momentum.
But when the No. 14
Gators (4-2, 2-2 Southeastern
Conference) travel to Lexington,
Ky., to take on the No. 8
Wildcats (6-1, 2-1 SEC), they'll
have history on their side.
Kentucky has suffered 20
straight losses at the hands of
the Gators, last pulling off a vic-
tory against UF in 1986.
In other words, not only
