UF45 L KENTUCKY37



Victory lifts Gators to top of wild East division


UF controls its own SEC destiny
By NICK ZACCARDI Trophy resume. "This has been a crazy ',..


Alligator Staff Writer
nzaccardi@alligator.org


LEXINGTON, Ky. Amid defeat, con-
troversy and tragedy, Urban Meyer needed
a motivational tool to get the Gators going
again.
He found a phone.
UF's 45-37 win against Kentucky on
Saturday afternoon didn't start with a kick-
off at 3:34.
The process began a week earlier, as
Meyer spent an hour dialing up his team
after the Wildcats upset top-ranked LSU.
Meyer, a psychology degree holder,
made sure of two things: that players were
living the right way and that they realized,
despite back-to-back losses, the team had
something to play for.
"Any time those kids understand that
there's a light at the end of the tunnel,
they'll go to the wall for you," Meyer said.
The coach believed it too.
"He was jacked up after the (LSU-
Kentucky) game," said sophomore quar-
terback Tim Tebow, who went 18-of-26
through the air for 256 yards and four
touchdowns to add to his sterling Heisman


season with all that has happened. Coach's
excitement is very contagious."
Meyer's method was successful, as UF
outgunned Kentucky at Commonwealth
Stadium, spinning the Southeastern
Conference picture farther out of whack.
The No. 9 Gators (5-2, 3-2 SEC) and No.
14 Wildcats (6-2, 2-2 SEC) sit
among five teams in the SEC
East with two conference
losses battling for one spot in
Football the conference title game.
After all that has happened
in the last few weeks, the Gators have one
simple mission.
Win out and go to Atlanta.
"Yes, it's wide open," Meyer said. "It
was wide open last week. Just take care of
business."
Feel-good underdog Kentucky fell back
into its doormat role against the Gators,
losing a 21st straight meeting between the
teams.
"They were probably fresher than we
were," Kentucky coach Rich Brooks said.
"We didn't do enough in critical situations

Orlando said he hasn't read the report, so he

UF represented in city

Gainesville Commissioner Jeanna
Mastrodicasa said she got involved in
city politics to help better the relation-
ship between Gainesville and UF.
"I think there are a lot of issues
in Gainesville that arise because the
university is here," said Mastrodicasa,
who is also UF's assistant vice presi-
dent for student affairs.
Her ties to UF aren't unusual for the
city. Four of the seven city commission-
ers have worked for UF, and university
students sit on city boards as adjuncts
and members.

UF asst. professor develops own research project


Heather Ray is in the physics department


By MARY MANCONE
Alligator Contributing Writer

Heather Ray has a unique op-
portunity given to few new profes-
sors in UF's physics department.
Ray, an assistant professor in
her first semester of teaching, has
the chance to develop and lead a
new research team at UF.
Professors are usually hired
into an existing group of research-
ers already funded and staffed
with graduate and post-graduate
students, but Ray chose to start her
own experimental group.
Ray has to find funding and
research staffers for the experi-
ment, which is within high-energy
physics and deals with subatomic
particles.
She must do all this as well as
perform her regular duties as a
professor.
"On the plus side, that means I
can do whatever I want," Ray said.
"Whatever in physics I want to do
with neutrinos, I can do."
Ray's research group will be
the first experimental group at UF
to conduct research on neutrino
oscillations.
She said she hopes to confirm
an experiment in the 1990s that
was said to have observed neu-
trinos changing types where they
should not have based on the dif-
ferences of their masses.
"If that experiment is right,
we've completely blown apart the
standard model of physics, which
is an awesome idea," Ray said.
Based on the standard model
of physics, which sets the rules
that govern particle interactions,


neutrinos are not even supposed
to have mass, let alone the ability
to change into another type of par-
ticle, she said.
Guenakh Mitselmakher, a pro-
fessor in the physics department,
said he hoped Ray would bring a
new dimension to their research
while enriching the department
through her leadership.
Although Ray, 32, is younger
-han mrnar nnonlp whon rprlvp ;


position as a professor, she had
all the experience and maturity
the department was looking for,
Mitselmakher said.
Since Mitselmakher arrived at
the department in 1995, he has
watched it change and improve as
more young and talented profes-
sors were hired.
Mitselmakher said Ray will
continue to move the department
in that iisrepqfiil dirprtinn


Along with her research project,
Ray also helps lecture Enriched
Physics 1 with Calculus, she said.
This honors physics course is the
first course Ray has taught.
While in graduate school, she
received a fellowship that allowed
her to focus solely on school and
research.
Ray leads the problem-solving
section of the lecture.
Ray said the toughest part of
teaching is staying enthusiastic
about the parts of physics taught

in the class that even she is not
fond of.
"You have to act like these
things are the best things in the
world, and nobody should be
scared," she said.
"Whatever in physics I
want to do with neutrinos, I
can do."
Heather Ray
UF assistant professor

To prepare for the class, she
reads all the same chapters as
students and works out all the
homework problems to under-
stand what may be confusing to
her students, she said.
Lauren Gravois, a UF freshman,
said Ray picks out good questions
and gives detailed explanations.
Ray said good scientists should
be dedicated and hard workers.
Sleepless nights and missed din-
ners are common when trying to
break through a problem.
"You have to be the type of
person who really enjoys tackling
a problem and sticking with it,"
she said.
Ray is also one of only a
handful of women professors in
the physics department, but she
doesn't think being a woman ei-
ther helped or harmed her in the
field of physics.
She attributes success to aggres-
siveness, tenacity and willingness
to work late.
"It didn't matter if you were
male or female, as long as you
exhibited this trait, then you were
seen as being a good scientist, and
someone who was serious about
their work," she said.


Beer fest draws hundreds


By JENNIFER BINGAMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Before UF beat the University of
Kentucky on Saturday, hundreds of people
were already celebrating at the Greater
Gator Beer Festival Part Two.
Attendees braved the hot sun to sample
roughly 100 beers from all over the world.
Chuck Fazio, coordinator of the festival,
said this was the first time in 11 years he had_
held the event during the fall.
He said he normally runs the event dur-
ing the spring, but he received so many
requests for another beer festival that he
decided to add on a "part two."
Dave Tarasi, a 22-year-old UF finance
major, said he ended up working for the
event and getting free admission because
he showed up 30 minutes before the festival


started.
"I know a lot about beer so I was fine do-
ing it," he said.
Tarasi's job was to hand out beers like
Anchor Steam, Purple Haze and a crowd
favorite called Flying Dog.
Chris Kennedy, a UF aero-
space engineering junior, said
Locewsal Flying Dog was such a heavy
_News beer that it stained his cup.
Kennedy said he lost track
of how many beers he had tried.
All of the tables with beer had plastic
jack-o'-lanterns filled with discarded beer.
Tarasi said they were used for people
who wanted to dean their cups or pour out
what they hadn't drank.
"That's how you can tell who is here to
get hammered and who wants to taste the
beer," he said.

Workshop held for renters


By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer

About 20 Gainesville renters and land-
lords learned about saving money and know-
ing their rights at a free workshop Saturday
morning.
. Around 35 people had signed up to come
to the city Housing Division's workshop,
"Renter Power," which was scheduled from
9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The event, which took place at the Eastside
Community Center, 2841 E. University Ave.,
was not aimed at student renters, said coordi-
nator Deneace Joshua, a financial analyst with
the city's Block Grant Division.
Different organizations presented tips for
household cleaning, fire safety, energy and
water conservation, budgeting, legal rights
and insurance.
The audience had the most questions for
the Gainesville Regional Utilities representa-
tive who gave tips for lowering electricity
bills.
Other represented agencies were Heaven
Scent Cleaning Service and Gainesville Fire
Department.
"We're trying to empower renters to be
self-sufficient in maintaining the homes
they're in," Joshua said.
It's also important for them to be aware of
their legal rights, she said.
"You could be living in a home that's not
fixed up," she said. "It's the landlord's right to
fix that up to a suitable living condition."
Landlord Nelson Morris said he attended


the workshop to learn more about such renter
and landlord responsibilities.
Morris owns several houses that he pri-
vately rents out. ,
Flossie Pressley, a Gainesville resident,
said she owns her own home but attended
because her son is a renter. She is also thinking
of renting out her house and moving into a
retirement home, she said.
Pressley said she most appreciated GRU's
presentation on being energy efficient.
"We're trying to empower renters
to be self-sufficient in maintaining
the homes they're in."
Deneace Joshua
financial analyst of the Block Grant Division

Joshua said the large proportion of rent-
ers in Gainesville is the reason the Housing
Division started the workshop five years ago.
"We have always given assistance to ho-
meowners," she said. "But we felt there was
a need to give assistance to renters because
there's so many."
Many Gainesville residents are not finan-
cially able to purchase a home or don't want
to because they don't plan to stay long, she
said.
Residents of Eden Park, Tiger Bay Court
and Lewis Place received a $25, voucher
on their rent for attending the workshop.
Everyone received a free toolkit from Lowe's
Home Improvement for making small home
repairs.


UF adds yoga classes


By ELIZABETH LEVA
Alligator Contributing Writer

The sounds of heavy breathing and
dripping sweat fill crowded rooms as
groups of people achieve heightened
levels of physical and spiritual bliss.
But students are demanding more.
Requests for more yoga classes
have led the management of UF's
Department of Recreational Sports
to increase the number of classes the
group fitness program offers.
Jasmine Abad, facility manager of
the UF Student Recreation and Fitness
Center, said the program offered only
one or two yoga classes when she
started working three years ago but
has added three new forms in the past
year.
Five forms of yoga are now avail-
able, each benefiting the body in a
different way, said Kenny Sterner,
building supervisor of UF's Student
Recreation and Fitness Center.
Several classes are held throughout
the day at the Southwest Recreation
Center and the Student Recreation
and Fitness Center, he said.
Mallory Mooser, a UF business
management junior, has practiced
yoga for six years.
"In my hometown, I went to a yoga


studio every other day to get my fix,"
Mooser said. "I was so happy when I
came to UF and found out that there
are yoga classes offered right on cam-
pus."
Rick Schnecker, co-owner and
instructor at Big Ron's Yoga College,
said he knows the importance of
exercise and physical activity from
personal experience.
"Yoga took me from
On a beat-up train of an old
Campus man to perfect health,"
Schnecker said.
Big Ron's Yoga College
exclusively teaches Bikram yoga,
which is not offered at UF recreational
facilities. Bikram yoga is practiced in a
heated, humidified room.
Schnecker said he supports stu-
dents doing any form of yoga for the
total body benefits it provides.
"College students spend a lot of
time in front of computers, which can
be bad for the spine," he said. "To me,
the most important benefit of yoga is
its ability to manipulate and realign
the spine, which controls the whole
body."
Schnecker said yoga is a lifetime.
commitment, but one that you can and
should do every day.
"It just makes life better," he said.

Big Money

Lottery should give more

to Florida education
Money, money everywhere, but not a buck to
spend.
That's what we think about when the Florida
Lottery says it can't give any more money to education
- which is exactly what it was designed to do.
Only 31 percent of the state lottery's revenue goes to-
ward education. About 60 percent pays for prizes, and the
rest covers administrative costs.
Even though prizes seem to be getting bigger and big-
ger, ticket sales are down.
While the lottery tries to increase its revenue, it's also.
faced with the challenge of deciding how much gambling
is OK.
But couldn't the lotto take some away from the prizes to
fund more education? Of course, this only works as long
as the state doesn't reduce its education funding.
California's lotto gives 35 percent of its profits to edu-
cation and brings in almost the same amount of revenue as
Florida's, so we know it's possible.
One long-standing argument is to raise the standards of
the Bright Futures scholarships. The SAT and ACT scores
to qualify for the scholarships are below the national av-
erage, and only the Florida Academic scholarship, which
covers 100 percent of tuition, requires any community
service hours.
A little less than 25 percent of the $1.56 billion that the
lotto gave to Florida's education for the 2007-2008 fiscal
year paid for Bright Futures scholarships.
If Bright Futures' standards were raised, Florida
wouldn't even have to raise tuition to benefit.
Universities would receive the same amount of tuition
either way, but the lotto could take the money it would
have used to pay for Bright Futures and give it directly
to the universities. It wouldn't cost the lottery system an
extra dime to do that, but the universities would receive
more money.
And we must point out that your Bright Futures schol-
arship, if you are one of the 90 percent of UF students re-
ceiving one, was most likely paid for by some of Florida's
poorest and most uneducated residents, who are most
likely to buy lottery tickets and the Florida Legislature
knows it.
How does it feel to know most students' tuition, which
most middle-class families can afford to pay, was funded
by those worst off?
UF received $22 million less this year from the lotto
than it did last year, even though statewide, the lotto gave
$118 million more to education, from K-12 through the
university level. So maybe it's time for UF's lobbying pow-
ers to shift the fight from tuition hikes to increasing lotto
revenue we're confident it's a battle that could be won.
Florida's educational systems are always in need of
more money, and it's not just the Legislature's job to pro-
vide it. If Florida is going to have a lottery system, it needs
to be able to milk it for all it's worth.
It's hard to understand why some old person deserves
a multi-million dollar prize while UF and other state uni-
versities have theirs taken from them.
We know it's not the lotto's job to fund Florida's edu-
cation systems. We just think schools should get a bigger

Column

Fake pres. candidate most promising


tephen Colbert is a presidential candidate (And so can
you!).
Come to think of it, so could I.
Well, why not? I may not be tall enough, but I compensate
with a rather presidential head of hair. I may not go to an Ivy
League school, but my best friend does. I may not have writ-
ten a book, but I have read one.
The only hurdle I can see is my lack of a television show
- that, and the whole not-being-35-years-old thing. I guess
2024 isn't too far off. In the meantime, I'll leave it to the pro-
fessional: Stephen T. Colbert.
On his own Comedy Central show, "The Colbert Report,"
on Tuesday night, Colbert announced he is running for presi-
dent (of the United States) ... but only in South Carolina,
where he grew up.
Oh, and he somehow plans to run in both the Democratic
and Republican primaries in January.
If elected, Colbert would undoubtedly be the great-
est president of all time, just as I've always said George
Washington would have made a terrific late-night TV host.
But, alas, we may never see the day.
"I don't want to be president. I want to run for president.
There's a difference," Colbert said Sunday morning during
an interview on NBC's "Meet the Press."
So much for that. Thanks for ruining my hope for
America, sir. But wait, what about being the greatest candi-
date ever? It's the journey, not the destination, right?
In that respect, Colbert actually has a shot. For one thing,
his writers on "The Colbert Report" are top-notch, even if
they have yet to win an Emmy Award.
Their new plan should be to win the White House first,
then get the Emmy like Al Gore.
The only threat I see to Colbert's campaign is the loom-
ing strike of the Writers Guild of America, which may come
at the beginning of next month. The last strike was in 1988
and lasted 22 weeks, leaving late-night hosts, such as David
Letterman, to just wing it without a staff of writers.


If there is a strike, maybe Colbert
could read aloud from his new book,
"I Am America (And So Can You!)."
Too bad he doesn't like to read
books.
Regardless of this concern, how-
Vincent Massaro ever, Colbert is a better actor than
letters@alligator.org anyone else in the field. In other
words, he does a better job at "faking
it" than the other candidates.
Those skills don't come without practice. During his
show and sometimes in public, Colbert adopts the persona
of a right-wing pundit, highlighting the absurdity of talking
heads on cable news.
Colbert won't be elected president, but his campaign will
mock the act of running. And the other candidates had better
pay attention.
Look how he announced his candidacy, for example.
None of the other candidates have a TV show. That's just
unbeatable. It made Fred Thompson's announcement on
"The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" look like the public-ac-
cess channel.
Colbert oozes faux patriotism much more convincingly
than Rudy Giuliani or John McCain. Colbert can change his
positions on issues faster than Mitt Romney can cancel an
appointment for an abortion.
Colbert loves South Carolina more than John Edwards
loves North Carolina, he looks more sincere than Barack
Obama and he's more of a man than Hillary Clinton will
ever be. And the only thing funnier than Colbert's candidacy
is Dennis Kucinich.
Colbert's bid for the nation's highest office may just be an
elaborate joke, but a campaign of that sort seems to be the
state of things.
At least I can tell when Colbert is kidding.

Letter to the Editor
Women who chose abortion not selfish
As I began reading the letters to the editor
Friday about Claire Beach's column about abor-
tion, I quickly glanced at the names of those
writing the responses and was baffled to see
they were written by men.
This is probably my biggest frustration in
the ongoing battle to legalize abortion for good:
Men think they have a due about the feelings
and views of women who are considering the
heavy decision to have an abortion.
For the most part, single mothers are a result
of a selfish man walking away from the situa-
tion because he is fortunate enough not to have
the physical burden of pregnancy. It is outra-
geous that Lawrence Mackey said it is selfish
for a woman to make the decision to pursue her
career or education over having a child.
What is selfish and incredibly unfortunate is
when women choose to raise a baby when they
are not mentally or financially stable enough to
properly do so. The majority of women who
have an abortion make this decision because
they feel they cannot give an unborn fetus the
childhood most of us were fortunate enough
to have.

Editorial Notebook

Fla. lotto unfairly targets less-privileged


Maybe we should make taxes
more fun. We'll borrow the
appeal of the lottery, and every-
one will have a good time while raising
needed funds for education.
The Florida Lottery estimates that the
odds of winning the jackpot are about
1 in 23 million. Fourteen million adults
live in Florida. Instead of spending $2.5
billion annually to operate the lottery,
why doesn't the state levy a small state
education tax and hand out a jackpot to a
randomly chosen Florida taxpayer?
The odds of winning would be better.
Anyone want to race me in filling out
tax form W-Score?
No? I don't blame you. Those "Double
Dough," or better" yet, "Triple Dough"
scratch-offs are more enticing. The sea-
sonal "Sleigh Bills" game may not be
everyone's cup of tea, but some people
find it particularly seductive.
It's too bad that you're about twice as
likely to be in a heavy-playing bracket if
you're a high-school dropout, black or
earn less than $10,000 a year, according to
a 1999 report, State Lotteries at the Turn
of the Century.
It's unfortunate that low-income and


Leigh Shapiro black students are
Editorial Notebook underrepresented
on the Bright
Futures payroll.
Cheery billboards on 1-75 encourage
everyone to join the fun. "When you
play, we all win!" the billboards claim. I
guess "When people with less education
pay, people with more education win!"
wasn't as catchy.
I digress, I judge, I assume. It's not my
place to tell other people what to do, and
lottery-ticket buyers understand their
chances of winning are small. All told,
most of the revenue falls into the minia-
ture hands of elementary schoolchildren
in the form of FCAT preparation and
school construction.
Or does it?
As it stands, the net gains from the
Florida Lottery account for a tiny portion
of the K-12 budget. K-12 education cost
Florida $23.8 billion in 2005, according
to the U.S. Census. Only $552 million
- about 2.3 percent came from lottery
money.
The popular misconception that the
Florida Lottery compensates for local
support of schools via property taxes and


other fundraising is dangerous. People
are less willing to pay for schools because
they think that the lottery is a panacea for
taxes that plague the populace.
I hope soon there will be lottos for
road construction, police officers and ad-
mission to Halloween Horror Nights.
For now, the unwillingness of taxpay-
ers to contribute to education because of
misinformation about the lottery affects
the quality of our schools.
When the lottery began in 1988,
Florida ranked 37th in per-student
spending, according to an article from
CBS News. Today it ranks 46th.
You should be allowed to gamble
if you want to do so. But hopefully we
can figure out an efficient way to equip
schools and teachers to educate students
better, keep them in school longer and see
them all graduate high school.
Fewer of them will fall into the bracket
of people who pay for the rest of our UF
tuition. And maybe one of them will find
a way to cajole me into happily filling out
my W-4 every year.

Tour shows energy-efficient homes


By KATIE BURNS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Along with several local homeowners,
Dwight Adams welcomed small groups
of strangers into his energy-efficient home


Sunday afternoon. Adams showed guests
his home's solar water heater and 27 roof-
top solar panels, some of which connect
to a solar inverter that sends the sun's
energy to Gainesville Regional Utilities.
"Even on a cloudy day like today, I'm

probably giving GRU more power than
I'm taking," Adams said.
A sprinkling of rain and a lot of mos-
quitoes didn't stop about 90 people from
attending the Gainesville Solar Tour.
The tour featured visits to six energy-ef-
ficient Gainesville homes and UF's Rinker
Hall. The private homes offered different
features such as solar water heating, solar
electric energy, double-pane windows
and heat-reflective metal shingles.
The event, sponsored by the American
Solar Energy Society at UF and SolarCity
Gainesville, began at UF's Energy
Research and Education Park.
"-You can eat it. You can put it

Michael Amish
Indigo manager

Fuel-efficient vehicles, such as a Toyota
Prius and a hybrid Honda Civic, sat on
exhibit, hoods and doors open, as guests
milled around local businesses' tables.
Indigo, a local store that offers "green"
household products, showcased counter-
tops made from recycled glass and car-
pet made from old plastic bottles, along
with other building materials. Manager
Michael Amish said the store also sells
cleaning supplies, paints, compostable
utensils and other items.
For example, he said a surface cleaner
made from parsley is much better for the
environment than other common formu-
las.
"You can eat it," Amish said, laughing.
"You can put it on your salad."

Student Govt. assigns people to work with city


City holds hearing


on development

By KORI FREDERICK
Alligator Writer

The Gainesville City Commission is holding a hearing
today to discuss the possibility of building a develop-
ment at 2100 NE 39th Ave., near the Gainesville Regional
Airport.
While some residents of East Gainesville are champion-
ing the development, airport officials say part of the land
that developers need is too close to the
Around airport.
Gainesville The commission will hear arguments
about the development in the later part
of today's meeting and will make a decision about it
Tuesday.
The developers, Hatchet Creek Developers, are trying
to bring more business to East Gainesville with the-' new
development.
The development could include an assisted living facil-
ity, 200,000 feet for commercial, office or outdoor storage,
and residences where at least one resident per unit must
be older than 55, according to the commission meeting
agenda.
But airport officials are worried about the noise level
for some of the residences, she said. About 359 acres of the
development are within the Airport Noise Zone, according
to the agenda.
The noise level the potential residents would have to
deal with is above the legal limit.

said. Another candidate for the seat,
Armando R. Grundy, said he is an
SFCC student looking to attend UP
in the spring or summer.
Mastrodicasa said she thinks it
makes sense to see so many univer-
sity employees involved in politics.
"The University of Florida is the
largest employer in Alachua County
and Gainesville," she said. "So if you
take a large enough slice of people,
you're probably going to find a UF
employee at some level."
Last July, a board started meet-
ing that might make students more
involved, too.
UF senior Alan Rezaei is chair-
man of the Student Community
Relations Advisory Board, the only
board in Gainesville that is chaired
by a student and reserves voting
positions for students.
"Right now we're a brand new
advisory," he said. "We're trying to
put all the issues and ideas we can
think of into one big pile."
Mastrodicasa said she has al-
ready brought issues before the
board involving sustainability and
over-occupancy in single-family
homes.
Large groups of unrelated ten-
ants sometimes live in single-family
Gainesville neighborhoods.
"By serving on this board I'm


hoping they'll represent whoever
their constituency is, go back, get
some suggestions and maybe think
of something we've never thought
of before," she said.
Student involvement in city gov-
ernment is nothing new, she said,
but it sometimes depends on what
current issues are.
UF's Student Government as-
signs people to work with the city,
she said, and
their involvement
depends on the
administration.
Henry said
that issues such
as parking,
noise violations,
landlord-tenant
Bryant issues, underage
drinking and roam towing have
been attracting student interest
lately
"I think there have been a num-
ber of issues the City Commission
has dealt and is dealing with that af-
fect the students, and I think you are
now getting a number of students to
realize that they need to have a voice
in actions that affect them," he said.
He said he also credits the uni-
versity administration with being
more involved in the city than previ-
ous ones.
"I feel the city has always wanted
the university as an ally," he said,
"but different administrations
have had different ideas, different


wants."
As one of the largest employers
in the city or county, Henry said he
feels that UF should have a partner-
ship role in city government.
Lately the university has taken
on that role in agreeing to create an
eastside campus near Waldo Road
and helping with city government
to bring in more jobs with biotech
firms, he said.
Henry, who graduated UF in
1983, now works as a scientist in its
biotechnology lab. He said his own
ties to the university don't influence
his politics.
"When you become a city com-
missioner, you can't be totally biased
toward the University of Florida,"
he said.
A Gainesville native, Henry said
he ran for the commission to give
back to the city he grew up in.
"I will say that my superiors here
at the university were very encour-
aging and accommodating in allow-
ing me to run for city commission,"
he said.
Bryant, another commissioner
and assistant director of admissions
at UF, said his job at the university
didn't have as much effect on his
decision to run for office as his
feelings on employment and youth
programs.
Still, he said, he is pleased with
the university's role and thinks stu-
dents should become more involved
in the city.

UF VOLLEYBALL

Gators sweep Georgia,.defeat Auburn in weekend set


By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Writer

When the UF volleyball team vis-
ited Georgia on Sunday, it was more
like coming home.
An unusually large number of
Gators fans witnessed UF's sweep
of Georgia (30-19, 30-23, 30-17), in
which the road team dominated
every category of the match.
"It was unexpected," UF coach
Mary Wise said of the fan turnout.
"This is as good a number as we've
ever had on the road. ... They were


vocal.
"They made it tough on Georgia.
I wish that group could travel with
us all the time."
UF also beat Auburn 3-1 (30-24,
29-31, 30-17, 30-20) Friday night.
The No. 10 Gators (18-1, 11-1
Southeastern Conference) had few
problems handling Georgia and
ended the match in the third game
when junior middle blocker Kelsey
Bowers smashed the ball down for
a kill.
But the match was effectively
wrapped up late in game three


when UF won a long rally.
At every chance to steal a
point, Georgia saw its opportunity
snatched by the Gators.
"I really love the play of
Kelsey Bowers.... She
played unbelievably hard."
Mary Wise
UF volleyball coach

"I saw Angle McGinnis lay out
for a ball, I saw Kisya Killingsworth
lay out for a ball, Elyse Cusack like


three times in the same rally laid out
for a ball," Wise said.
Senior outside hitter Marcie
Hampton finished with a match-
high 20 kills. Bowers and fellow
middle blocker Killingsworth each
chipped in for nine.
Friday night saw well-rounded
play for UF, but the highlights be-
longed to Bowers.
She set new career-highs, tallying
17 kills six in game one and six
digs on the night. She also had seven
block assists.
"She's just so good, and that re-


ally allows us to use our foot speed,"
Wise said. "I really love the play
of Kelsey Bowers. I mean, 17 kills,
seven blocks, she played unbeliev-
ably hard tonight."
Bowers played most of the match
because Killingsworth did not
compete until the end of game two.
When Killingsworth did come in,
she made an impact.
In playing just over two games,
Killingsworth had 10 kills, two block
assists and a solo block.
Radio broadcasts contributed to
this report.

understand the concept of trying
to fluster and limit communica-
tion for the opponent.
But when the public ad-
dress announcer proclaimed
"First dooooooown Kentucky!"
every time the Wildcats moved
the chains, he probably should
have said, "wake uuuuuup
Kentucky!."
The real telling sign, however,
was what I saw aftet the game.
Has anyone ever seen what
Tennessee or Alabama fans are
like after a loss at home? How
about a couple weeks ago when
the Gators fell to Auburn?
That somber, depressing
mood just wasn't present with
Kentucky fans after the loss. I
watched as Wildcats faithful
exited the stadium the same way
they'd leave a restaurant or a gro-
cery store.
They gave no indication that
they had just witnessed a heart-
breaking loss.


But I guess you can't really
blame them, either.
Being competitive in football
really came out of nowhere in
a place that lives and dies with
basketball.
While UF can yield an excel-
lent atmosphere for both sports,
it doesn't nearly have the long-
standing tradition in any sport
that Kentucky has in basketball.
So can anyone really expect
Wildcats' fans to fall in love
with another sport on such short
notice?
Kentucky football being rel-
evant is such a novel concept
that the school didn't even have
enough seats in the press box
to accommodate the media for
Saturday's game.
Perhaps the only way
Kentucky will ever hold a true
home field advantage, a la the
other SEC powers, is if the school
starts showing Wildcats basket-
ball highlights during timeouts.


FOLLOW, from page 19

tackle Carlton Medder suffered an
injury to his heel.

PASS RUSH COMES THROUGH:
After six games of blitzing medi-
ocrity, UF finally showed a legiti-
mate pass rush against Kentucky.
The Gators recorded a season-
high six sacks Saturday. Meyer
said he still needs to see more
from the defensive line, but he did


admit that significant progress
had been made.
After de-
fensive -tackle
Clint McMillan
went down
with a shoulder
injury, fresh-
man Torrey
Davis filled in
Davis admirably.
Defensive
end Jermaine Cunningham
excelled with 2.5 sacks, two of


which came in a key fourth-quar-
ter Kentucky drive.
Freshman end Justin Trattou,
who sacked Woodson to end
the first half, said the bye week
helped.
"We had a pretty decent two
weeks' worth -with those young
players," Meyer said. "We had
to get them in there. McMillan's
injury forced us to get some qual-
ity playing time for some young
guys. Some guys made some
plays."


Burleigh: aggressive offense also best defense


SOCCER, from page 19


per game in their first nine matches, the Gators have
been an offensive juggernaut during their winning
streak. UF has scored five goals in two of its past
three matches and has averaged nearly three goals
per game in its past five contests.
Lost in the attention given to the Gators' up-
and-down offense is their solid defensive play. UF
has claimed seven shutout victories this season and
Sunday would have made it eight, had the Tide's
Molly Wittig not scored in the 85th minute.
But the Gators want to focus on their aggressive


offense, which outshot the opposition by a wide mar-
gin Sunday, taking 28 shots to Alabama's five.
"Our offense puts a lot of pressure on our op-
ponents," UF coach Becky Burleigh
-. said. "Our offense might be our best
defense."
Now, with three of their four re-
Soccer maining games at home, the Ga1,:s
have a renewed sense of confi ice.
After listening to critics who questioned the.
squad's ability to score, there's also a sense of vin-
dication.
"We're feeling good that everything's coming
together," forward KeLeigh Hudson said.

UF FOOTBALL

Injured right shoulder should not hamper Tebow


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

UF's victory against Kentucky
on Saturday didn't come without
casualties.
Quarterback Tim Tebow suffered
a right shoulder contusion, and
Coach Urban Meyer said during
his Sunday teleconference that the
sophomore will not take part in any
contact drills this week.
Tebow does not typically partici-
pate in contact drills anyway, but the
injury to his non-throwing shoulder
will result in increased concern from
the coaching staff.
"He'll be fine from what [the
team doctors] are telling me," Meyer
said. "We have to be careful, but we
have to continue to coach him up."
Tebow should be able to play
through the injury, but the same
can't be said for some other UF
players.
Meyer said freshman free safety
Major Wright is "very question-
able" for this week's game against
Georgia after breaking his right
thumb Saturday against Kentucky.
Meyer said Wright could wear
a protective cast, but the starting
safety may also need surgery.
If Wright is unable to play, either


Kyle Jackson or Dorian Munroe will
fill in. That role will be up for grabs
based on performance in practice
this week, Meyer said.
Jackson, a senior, was the open-
ing-day starter before Wright
replaced him a few games into
the season. Munroe played for an
injured Tony Joiner in last year's
Southeastern Conference champion-
ship game.
"He'll be fine from what
[the team doctors] are tell-
ing me."
Urban Meyer
UF coach

Jackson and Munroe would see
the majority of any available play-
ing time, but fellow safeties Bryan
Thomas and Jamar Hornsby have
also captured Meyer's attention.
After missing several weeks with
a sprained MCL, Thomas is back
and healthy.
"He did decent on kicking
game," Meyer said. "He's a guy
that's going to have to get in the
rotation. Jamar Homsby is another
guy who's improved."
Meyer also said senior offensive

Saturday in Lexington, Ky.


Kentucky fans fail to replicate Rupp


LEXINGTON, Ky. -
As I soaked in the game day atmosphere while
stuck in traffic on the way to the stadium
Saturday, it became blatantly obvious that
Kentucky has never been more excited about its foot-
ball team.
Hours later, it also became blatantly obvious that
Kentucky is, and always will be, a basketball school.
Saturday's match lured ESPN's "College
GameDay" to Lexington and set an attendance record
for the Wildcats.
Before the game, you could sense just how excited
the Kentucky fans were and how much they believed
in their team.
But once the game started, I was left wondering if I
was really in the same place.
That proud, hopeful vibe from the tailgaters cer-
tainly didn't transfer into the stadium.
Considering how important a game it was for the
Wildcats, I expected the noise to be deafening. I ex-
pected the crowd to be intimidating.
I expected, well, a Rupp Arena crowd.
But while the Wildcats crammed more than three


times as many fans into
Commonwealth Stadium as a
standing room only crowd at
Rupp, the noise and intensity
of the crowd was not even
worthy of a comparison.
As the Gators drove into
Bryan JoneS Kentucky territory, the crowd
Bryan Out Loud sat and watched politely.
bjones@alligator.org As UF quarterback Tim
Tebow scurried to the line to
call an audible, he was treated with a mild roar from
the Wildcats faithful. *
Don't get me wrong. When Andre' Woodson
and the Kentucky offense drove downfield for a big
touchdown, the crowd went nuts, or at least as wild
as the Wildcats were going to get outside of basketball
season.
But cheering after a score provides little to no
home field advantage.
Having seen Kentucky fans in action for basketball
games, I find it hard to believe that this group doesn't

UF offense recovers


* THE GATORS SCORED
FIVE GOALS SUNDAY.

By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Writer

Three weeks ago, the Gators
seemed broken by their in-
ability to score, crippling the
team's national championship
aspirations.
But after Friday's 2-0 win
against Auburn and Sunday's 5-
1 thrashing of Alabama, UF (9-4-
2, 5-2 Southeastern Conference)
is the hottest team in the SEC.
The Gators are rolling with a
five-game winning streak.
Shana Hudson opened the
floodgates on Sunday with an
unassisted score, and one min-
ute later, Stacy Bishop ripped
another goal past the Crimson


Tide's Justine Bernier for her
fifth of the season.
"Mel Booth played a perfect
ball across," Bishop said. "I just
had to tap it in."
Bishop would also assist
on Ameera
Abdullah's
It first goal of
Sthe season in
the 25th min-
ute.
Though
she has never
appeared to
Abdullah be frustrated
by her lack of offensive produc-
tion this year, she seemed re-
lieved by finally scoring a goal.
"It feels pretty good,"
Abdullah said. "I'm hoping
now I can kind of get on a roll
and start scoring."
After averaging just 1.2 goals

to get the victory."
Instead, UF won it in the fourth quarter with a
refreshing display of confidence that bore no re-
semblance to its shaky late-game play in losses to
LSU and Auburn.
Kentucky cut the lead to 38-31 with 3:35 left on
Andre' Woodson's fourth touchdown pass.
The Gators, who had gone conservative with
Tebow runs to kill the clock earlier this year,
scrapped the usual plan and took some chances on
the ensuing drive.

"Everybody wants to ask the question, boy
you guys are down. No, man, we're right
in the middle of the SEC. There's some
hard times out there, but they ain't here.
We're fine. We're going."
Urban Meyer
UF coach

Twice, offensive coordinator Dan Mullen called
for deep passes.
The second try yielded a 40-yard bomb from
Tebow to Percy Harvin, moving the ball to the
Kentucky 2-yard line with 1:48 left.
Tebow snuck into the end zone on the next play
for his fifth score to give UF an insurmountable 45-
31 edge.
"I just knew that with our offense we could go
out there and finish tonight," Tebow said.
Kentucky added a score on the final play of the
game as Woodson padded his stats.
Woodson finished with 415 passing yards and
five touchdowns, but he was also sacked six times.
Down 21-10 at the half, he cut the lead to 7
points in both the third and fourth quarters, but
the Gators kept answering the call and avoided a
midseason meltdown.
"Everybody wants to ask the question, boy you
guys are down," Meyer said. "No, man, we're right
in the middle of the SEC.
"There's some hard times out there, but they
ain't here. We're fine. We're going."
