Biology major surges in popularity at UF
By HILARY LEHMAN
Anabelle Outar liked biology but said she
thought some classes in UF's interdisciplinary
biology program would do little to prepare
her for medical school.
But with the creation of a new biology ma-
jor this summer, Outar, a UF junior, decided
to switch her major from biochemistry and
molecular biology to biology.
Now, UF's biology major is already one
of the most popular majors at UF, a UF news
The interdisciplinary major, is being com-
pletely replaced by the biology major because
of course overlap, said Margaret Fields, assis-
tant dean and director of biological sciences in
UF's College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
Outar, now in her first semester on the pre-
professional track of the biology major, called
the new biology program the "best prepara-
tion" for her future goals.
Spring will be the third semester for stu-
dents to register for classes as biology majors.
About 4,000 students are taking the core
courses required for biology majors, Fields
Almost 1,100 students are in the major, she
Before the creation of the major, UF was
the only university out of Florida's 11 public
universities that did not offer a general biol-

Fields after graduation.
After the creation of an
interdisciplinary biology major during the
2000-2001 school year, rapid growth of the
program prompted the decision to create an
official biology major, Fields said.
Fields said the biology major was not nec-
essary in the past because pre-professional
students could take the biology classes they
needed through the zoology and botany ma-
The main difference between the interdis-
ciplinary major and the new biology major is
transparency, Fields said.
She said the new major, which is being
offered through both CLAS and the College
of Agricultural and Life Sciences, is easier to
find and add because students do not have to

Circus to visit Gainesville
* THE COLE BROS. CIRCUS IS
HITTING TOWN WEDNESDAY.
By APRIL DUDASH
With pastel poodles and a "Globe of Death"
in tow, Cole Bros. Circus will move its Big Top
into Gainesville on Wednesday.
Shows will take place at The Oaks Mall on
Wednesday and Thursday at 4:30 p.m. and
Renee Storey, vice president of adminis-
tration for the circus, said Cole Bros. Circus
is known for having the longest continuous
history of any circus in the U.S. and was estab-
lished in 1886.
Storey said Cole Bros. Circus staff and
performers, who have come from all over the
world, have created a tight-knit family.
She said their office manager is from the
Ukraine and used to perform in a flying tra-
The office manager is also the flying cannon-
ball at the circus performance, Storey said.
Some of the ticket takers also juggle on
horseback, she said.
Most of the employees have two to three
jobs, she said.
"You're almost sure to find that they come
from someplace interesting, and they do some-
thing really fascinating and sometimes danger-
ous," Storey said.
The most popular circus act of the year has
been the "ThunderDrome: The Moto-Globe of
Death," Storey said.
"In our performance, the 'Globe of Death'
opens the show," she said. "The kids just love it
because it's got motorcycle riders."
Two motorcyclists ride around in a giant
globe and do daredevil tricks.
People are encouraged to come out
Wednesday while the circus is propping up the
tent, she said.
Local "I hope they have the oppor-
News tunity to speak with some of our
performers," Storey said.
Their season, which began in
March, had scheduled stops in Louisiana, New
York City and Washington, D.C.
The most recent performances have been
in Tallahassee. Storey said she thinks that the
circus is a great way for college students to un-
wind and take a break from their studies.
"It's perfectly OK to be a kid," she said.
"There are not too many places like that left."
When purchased in advance, general ad-
mission tickets are $12. Adult prices, for ages 13
and up, go up to $17 on site.
Free children's tickets can also be found on
the circus' Web site.

Time drags for students waiting for CLAS advisers
By MARIA FERNANDA CASTRO
Alligator Contributing Writer
Some people drool, some read and others
have their ears plugged with headphones.
Jessica Reddish just wishes her seat had a
headrest to make her experience more bear-
Reddish, an anthropology junior,
had been waiting for 25 minutes to
see her academic adviser last week.
She was not the only one.
Twenty-six other students were also
waiting to see an adviser with her at
the Academic Advising Center of the
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
Students are waiting between 45 to 90 minutes
to see an adviser during one of the busiest
times of the semester, Albert Matheny, director
of the Academic Advising Center, wrote in an
Many students are seeking advice before
advanced registration for the spring semester
begins on Monday, often to get holds on their
The college has a student-to-adviser ratio
of 1,200-to-1, while in other colleges the ratio
is 250-to-1, Matheny wrote.
"We do remarkably well in the AAC
[Academic Advising Center] when you con-
sider this discrepancy," he wrote.
In the last few years, the number of stu-
dents in the college has grown from 10,000 to
12,300, but the number of advisers stayed the
same due to budget constraints in the college,
This year, the center is getting help from
graduate assistants and retired faculty mem-
bers "who basically work out of the goodness
of their hearts," he wrote.
The extra help is aimed at giving the center
more advisers and staff members available to
students, Matheny wrote, and if all goes as
planned, an additional hired adviser will start
working Jan. 1.
"I hope we can use this to address the ad-
vising bottlenecks," he wrote. "That would be
very nice, and students would see a big impact
on wait time."
"I hope we can use this to address
the advising bottlenecks. That
would be very nice, and students
would see a big impact on wait
Academic Advising Center director
In order to avoid waiting, students should
plan ahead by making sure they are seeing the
right adviser and going to the center early in
the morning, he wrote.
Coming between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. is not
recommended because most students plan to
go during those times, he wrote.
The center is open Monday through Friday
from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., but many students are
in class during those times.
"I don't mind waiting, but I hate to miss
class," said Stephen Phillips, an anthropol-
ogy junior. He had to miss class after he was
waiting for more than one hour for advising
The college's debt may also be a factor
slowing down the advising process, Matheny
The recent proposal by the Florida
Legislature and the Board of Governors for a
tuition increase will directly benefit students
because the money will go toward hiring more
advisers, he wrote.
"CLAS understands that we are short-
handed, and I believe that help will soon be on
the way," he wrote.
In the meantime, students like Reddish will
have to linger in the waiting area at the center.
Computer outlets could help encourage
students to be patient, she said, but now all
she does is "stare obliviously at other people"
while she waits.

have people who are not gone dur-
ing the course of the day," Hanrahan
said. "You need to work hard at that.

Faculty Senate may overhaul Student Honor Court
* A COMMITTEE WANTS MORE
By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Students charged with cheating might
lose the chance to have their cases heard in
front of the Student Honor Court.
A report from a committee of UF's Faculty
Senate at its Thursday meeting would elimi-
nate the handling of academic dishonesty
cases by the court, citing the lack of faculty
involvement as "problematic" and "of sig-
Neil Patel, Student Honor Court chancel-
lor, said he met with Student Body President
Ryan Moseley on Monday and said they
were still working on a response to the pos-
Patel said removing the court would take
away an important avenue of student in-
volvement in academic conduct cases.
Kim Tanzer, a UF architecture professor
who co-chairs the committee, said the Senate
is-not looking to dismantle the court.
Mainly, the committee's research showed
that faculty members want additional input
in cases involving academic conduct, Tanzer
Because of this, some professors were
taking matters into their own hands when it
came to discipline, the report states.
Generally, students charged with academ-
ic dishonesty can choose to have their cases
heard by the Student Conduct Committee,
which is composed of students and faculty,
or by the Student Honor Court.
Other venues for hearing cases include
an administrative hearing, the Greek Judicial
Board, or the Health Science Center's and
the Levin College of Law's student conduct
In the Student Honor Court, law students
act as the defense and prosecution, each pre-
senting a case to a panel of students.
The panel determines whether the ac-
cused student is responsible for the charge
and recommends an appropriate punishment
to the Dean of Student's Office, which makes
a final decision.
Tanzer said faculty could only participate
in the process as witnesses.
She said the purpose of her committee was
not to specifically target the Student Honor
Court but to streamline the different methods
of handling academic conduct cases.
The committee recommended limiting
the investigation of academic conduct cases
to faculty hearings, the Student Conduct
Committee and the Health Science Center
and law school committees.
Tanzer said the Faculty Senate will vote to
endorse or reject the committee's findings at
its Nov. 15 meeting.
If the Senate endorses the recommenda-
tions, Vice President for Student Affairs
Patricia Telles-Irvin could make the changes.

Hate to Wait
More CLAS advisers
It's UF's eternal problem. No, not too few season football
tickets. Not Friday's crossword puzzle being too hard for
you to finish during your chemistry lecture. Not when
your professor schedules an exam for the morning after
We're talking about the lack of advisers for the College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences.
If you've ever been lucky enough to be awarded a hold
or if you accidentally forgot to take some critical tracking
courses, you might know what it's like to have to sit in the
hell that is the Academic Advising Center lobby.
We shudder just to think about it.
Academic advising, and presumably the center, are sup-
posed to be lucky recipients of some of the money from the
Tuition Differential Program, which will begin bringing in
funds next fall. UF President Bernie Machen has said he
would use the some of the money to hire new advisers.
Hopefully CLAS' student-to-adviser ratio will improve
from 1,200 to one. But in order for CLAS' ratio to be com-
parable to UF's other colleges' ratios of 250 students to one
adviser, CLAS would need a total of 49 advisers.
Right now, it only has 11.
We know that is completely unrealistic, but even doubling
its number of current advisers would mean only one adviser
for every 560 students.
For now, students are advised (ha!) to avoid coming to the
Academic Advising Center right before registration begins,
but for students with holds or who have no clue what to take
next term, that may not be an option.
We suggest you exhaust all your other options your
department, phone calls or e-mails, your Preview staffer
- before you trudge down to the center. If you absolutely
must go, make sure you bring along an iPod, your laptop,
some homework, a pillow or a crossword puzzle just not

A minor proposal for registration season
t's already time to register for classes, and we're all too
busy with this semester to care about the next.
Isn't that the way it always happens? Registration
has a tendency to pop up right in the middle of exams, so
we don't spend enough time choosing classes.
Each and every semester, we naively feel like we'll be
able to sign up for exactly the courses we need when we
want to attend them. Too bad it doesn't work like that.
If war is hell, registration must be hell's musty base-
It's time to use those extra credits for something worth-
while. General education classes would be great fillers for
your credit quota, but they're no more than fillers. Gen-ed
courses are the most worthless classes offered.
Be honest with me: How many of you actually remem-
ber anything from Age of Dinosaurs? How much are you
really going to learn from the newly required "diversity"
credits? If the classes weren't so blasted easy, people might
actually show up.
I'm petitioning the university to add a new minor that
students could choose in lieu of gen-ed requirements. The
minor would give students just as liberal an education and
actually equip them for the real world.
Ladies and gentlemen, you could be among the first in
the country to study Argumentative Theory.
This course of study will subject the student to a num-
ber of diverse opinions on an equally diverse amount of
subjects. These 16 credits will validate a candidate's ability
to effectively justify their many different opinions.
In your first semester, you'd be required to take four
credits of Theory vs. Theory. This class would highlight
the differences between scientific theories, which a large
number of scientists agree upon, and everyday theories,
which are backed by no factual data.
Evolution and gravity would not be debated.
Next, you'd have a choice between Actual Statistics
and Media Statistics, either course for four credits. Both
sues, but only one of them would
correctly analyze the facts.
The other would prepare you
for a career at Fox News.
A Twenty-first Century

course, will benefit nearly every-

effect on society" and "Prohibition of sex and illegal drugs,
and not being able to gain tax revenues from either."
The most controversial class, two-credit Race and
Culture, would be unlike any ever offered. For each week
of study, students would be asked to prepare a presenta-
tion on members of a different culture.
Any student receiving lower than a B on any project
will be required to spend the rest of the semester living in
the country where that culture is most prevalent.
The student would be dropped off without food, mon-
ey or language lessons and be expected to adjust to the
culture accordingly. Students may not want to skip week
seven, when North Korea will be covered in detail.

Letters to the Editor
Protesters still active regarding Tasering incident
I am writing in response to the DART issued Friday
to protesters who didn't show up at the policy forum
regarding Andrew Meyer's Tasering.
Come on, Alligator editors. I want to see some more
effort, some more vision in expressing those opinions
before I see some attempt at that lovable Colbert-ish
wit. I know the new activism on campus has presented
you a rotund, inviting, already-basted-by-televi-
sion-talking-heads-past rump to sink your salivating
sarcasm into. But I dare say, haye some more taste!
Demonstrate that journalistic hunger for credible re-
search and authorship!
Darts & Laurels once again derided students
alarmed at a fellow student's Tasering for only seeking
the unstructured, attention-getting path of protest, in-
stead of the public forum. I ask the editorial board, was
it aware that the meeting established as a consequence
of the protest was held and well received last week
between UF President Bernie Machen and a delegation
of protesters? Did they stop to consider there's reason
for little faith in the Student Government crony-laden
review panel? Steps were taken. Check your facts.

One team eliminated from SFCC internship contest
* FOUR TEAMS ARE LEFT TO
COMPETE IN THE CONTEST.
By EVA MAE SMITH

There were squeals of joy from Team
White Bengals and disappointed looks from
Team Krackerjacks on Monday.
Five teams, each with four SFCC stu-
dents, crowded into a conference room at
Charles Perry Construction, where the first
team was eliminated in an SFCC contest for
internships throughout the state called The
At the elimination ceremony, Breck
Weingart, president of Charles -Perry
Construction, announced the teams that
would be moving on for three more tasks.
"This is a promotion," he said. "We're

Weingert announced Team Bombsquad,
Big Red, Intellects and White Bengals would
move on. Team Krackerjacks was eliminated
from the competition.
The teams were each assigned a construc-
tion project from Rebuild Gainesville that
took place Sunday from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.,
said Averial McKenzie, an
Santa Fe SFCC student and proj-
Community ect coordinator for The
Projects included build-
ing front porch stairs and creating a swing
set, McKenzie said.
At the elimination ceremony, Alan
Rezaei, co-coordinator of the project, an-
nounced the next task.
The second task focuses on journalism
skills and is hosted by The Gainesville Sun.
Rezaei said it is called "Reporting the News,
Building a Newspaper."
The objective of the assignment is to
create a one-page spread in the SFCC Saint
Sentinel that focuses on the skills necessary
for students entering the journalism work-
force, he said.
Essence Glover, 17, a member of team
White Bengals, was so happy that her team
made it through that she let out a scream.

This will allow developers to
build up to 1,500 units, where at
least one resident must have at
least 55,500 assisted living units,
100,000 square feet of office space
and 100,000 square feet of com-
mercial and retail space, according
to the meeting agenda.
The Rev. Milford Griner,
president of the Alachua County
Ministerial Alliance, said that as a
resident of East Gainesville, he be-
lieves the area is being overlooked
"This would be a boom to East
Gainesville," Griner said. "With
the Wal-Mart coming in, this
would only make things better."
Danielle Emenhiser, director of
community political affairs with
Student Government, said stu-
dents should be aware of all sides
of the development debate.
It's her job to ensure UF's stu-
dent body stays informed about
issues affecting the city.
"I want students to see what
goes on outside the campus bor-
ders," Emenhiser said. "There's so
much going on in this community
that they need to be aware of."
The city planning board has
advised the City Commission to
deny the developers' first peti-
tion to change the industrial land
located dose to the airport to the
Planned Use District category, but
wants the commission to approve

Safety zones return for game
By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
UF will host three Sideline Student Safety
Zones near The Jacksonville Landing on Friday
and Saturday in Jacksonville, a news release
from Gene Zdziarski, UF's dean of students,
That's one more zone than there was last
year, the first year the zones were established.
They were created by UF, the University of
Georgia and the city of Jacksonville.
UF students who need first aid, telephones,
water, coffee, snacks or computer access at the

vens where legal trouble is no threat, the release
stated. Taxi service and trolleys will also be
The goal of the zones is to minimize violence
and accidents over the weekend. Two UF stu-
dents died during Florida-Georgia game week-
ends in 2004 and 2005.
Representatives from UF and the University
of Georgia and volunteers from Jacksonville will
staff the zones.
Jacksonville and UF's University Police
Department officers will also be on duty
Saturday night, but students visiting the zones
don't need to worry about legal repercussions
for alcohol issues, the release stated.
"We're not here for that," Zdziarski said in
the release. "We're there strictly to help people."
The three zone locations will be behind the
Starbucks inside The Landing, at the intersec-
tion of Laura Street and Independent Drive
and behind the Welcome Center across from
Jacksonville Municipal Stadium.
"We're there strictly to
UF's dean of students
The zones will be open from 4 p.m. Friday
to 3 a.m. Saturday and from noon Saturday to 3
The turnout at the zones in 2006 was success-
ful, said Steve Orlando, UF spokesman. UF still
made some minor changes.
The locations will have more phone chargers
and outlets available, Orlando said, in addition
to more computer access.
It's important that students understand the
guarantee that they won't face punishment if
they show up intoxicated, he said.
That's why the coffee is there, he added.

Energy may be the defining issue
of this century. Our quality of life,
economy, standard of living and
security depend on clean, afford-
able and reliable energy. The limited
supply of fossil energy, its accelerated
consumption, and a dependence on
unstable countries for fossil fuel supply
are major U.S. economic and secu-
rity issues. Moreover, due to Florida's
unique coastal geography and southern
latitude, it is the state with both the
most to gain by harnessing its abun-
dant renewable energy resources, and
the most to lose if it doesn't.
We are rich in renewable energy re-
sources, particularly biomass and solar,
yet we're currently dependent on fossil
fuels. This dependency contributes
to global warming and the associated
increased risk of violent weather and
rising ocean levels that threaten the
residents living near our 1,350 miles of
More than 150 University of
Florida faculty are hard at work each
day developing new technologies -
from fuel cells, batteries and solar cells,
to biofuels, nuclear power and green
building construction, to name just a
few in order to provide a sustain-
able energy future for Florida and the
world. This year, the Florida Institute
for Sustainable Energy (FISE) www.
energy.ufl.edu was created to coor-
dinate and promote the vast energy
research across campus.
In addition, we were able to secure
a $4.5 million Florida Center of Excel-
lence award to create the FISE Energy
Technology Incubator. This incubator,
currently under construction in Rhines
and Rogers Halls, is a user facility for
faculty, staff and students, to acceler-

impact on society.

In an emergency, administrators will now
be able to immediately send text or voice
messages to the entire student body or stu-
dents located in a specific campus building.
Because the addresses and phone num-
bers will be used only in the event of an
emergency, they will be kept private and are
exempt from Florida public records laws.
The collection of contact information
is one part of a larger emergency notifica-
tion program designed to ensure the instant
communication between UF administra-
tion and students needed in any crisis.
Also included in the new response plan
is a system of bullhorn-like mobile warning
devices that can be mounted on university
These measures are additions to the
emergency communication methods already
in use, such as e-mail messages, press releases
and posts on the UF home page.

UF's new biology major has six tracks
BIOLOGY, from Page 1
The new biology major has six tracks.
The College of Agricultural and Life Sciences of-
fers three: natural science, biotechnology and applied
biology. CLAS offers biology and biology secondary
Thetlast-track is pre-professional, which is offered
through both colleges.
The previous interdisciplinary major only offered
Walter Judd, a UF botany professor and a co-chair
on the committee that created the new major, said the
high number of biology students going on to profes-
sional or graduate school after getting their under-
graduate degrees was an important factor in creating
the biology major.
This broad base now provides a good foundation
for students going on to professional school, he said.
The new design of the major, with added electives
and multi-college collaboration, allows students to
choose from an array of biological science classes,
The addition of advisers specifically for the biol-
ogy major caters more specifically to students' inter-
ests as well. The advisers make adjustments to the
program as needed, he said.
Fields said the curriculum of the new major is
"It's not something that is set in stone and will
never change," she said. "It will change relative
to needs, the needs of our students for graduate

I Protesters spilled symbolic
red liquid on Tigert's steps
Fiona Tennyson, 9, marches in a protest against the Iraq war and global warming on the way to Tigert Hall
PRU I .I5 I, from Page 1
Solmo, a member of Students for a
. Diane Solmo said Fiona begged
her to stay an extra day to partici-
pate in the protest.
"She said to me, literally, 'This
is more important than the fourth
grade,'" Solmo said.
When she's not trying to
change U.S. foreign policy, Fiona
said she likes to paint and read.
She said she's already on the sixth
Harry Potter book.
On Monday, it was all business.
Fiona hiked alongside her sister,
Chelsea, as they chanted in uni-
son, "One, two, three, four we
don't want this oil war. Five, six,
seven, eight stop the war, stop
As protesters gathered on
the steps of Tigert Hall, leaving
behind scents of patchouli and
sweat, Clifton Hicks took the
Hicks, a 22-year-old Iraq war
veteran and SFCC freshman,
served in the U.S. Army from
October 2003 to July 2004. He was
granted an honorable discharge in
December 2005 because he was
named a Conscientious Objector.
"When I was in Iraq, me and
the other guys always swore that
when we got home, we'd fight
against this war," he said. "Most of
them have tried to forget about it,
but I want to keep that oath."
After protesters gave several
more speeches and symbolically
spilled red liquid on to Tigert's
steps, protesters were back on the
road. This time, they marched the
1.25 miles to Gainesville's City Hall
to speak out against Gainesville's
proposal of using wood and waste
products for energy.
As for UF's reaction, Steve
Orlando, UF spokesman, said
Machen-has been cooperative with
protesters this semester.
"Isn't free speech a great
thing?" Orlando said.

Heisman candidate and won.
Tebow didn't just amble into Andre'
Woodson's stadium and make a statement, he

The loss can't be blamed on Woodson, but he
needed the win.
If Kentucky had won the game, he would be
the current favorite for the Heisman. Now, he
will likely be an afterthought.
So Woodson down, you say Ryan is still bet-

Let's put him in the Southeastern Conference

neck. Kiss that perfect record goodbye.
Tebow has as much big-game experience as
anyone after playing in LSU's Death Valley and
a national championship game.
Ryan's great and will be a top NFL Draft pick,
but for every positive he has, Tebow has it and
Tebow is a leader in every way the Gators need
him to be. He has a rocket arm and he can run.
"He'd probably be my first draft pick," UF
coach Urban Meyer said of his quarterback after
Saturday's win at Kentucky. "If they said, 'coach,
you get one pick,' I'd say, 'I've got mine.'"
Sorry, but you can't be on one of the worst
teams in your conference and expect to be con-
sidered among the nation's elite.

Gators scrimmage lacks standout defensive play
* IT WAS THE TEAM'S FIRST PUBLIC
By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
One day after its public debut, the UF men's
basketball team has yet to make an impression.
Associate Head Coach Larry Shyatt is unset-
tfled following Sunday's scrimmage at the Alltel
Wireless Fan Appreciation Day in the O'Connell
"We just finished watching the tape, and
there's a lot of mixed emotions, a little disap-
pointed really," Shyatt said Monday of the three-
period, fifteen-minute scrimmage. "We had a
couple of players stand out offensively. I think
the disappointment was that we really didn't
have a lineup or a group of players that stood out
The afternoon event replaced UF's annual
Midnight Madness. The women's team played
one five-minute scrimmage following an au-
tograph session. The men practiced a set of
drills before competing in their own intrasquad
The sides were shuffled throughout, and the
final score ended in a 30-30 tie. Highlights of the
scrimmage include two outside shots by center
Marreese Speights and a put-back dunk by for-
ward Chandler Parsons, who led all scorers with
Shyatt said he was impressed with Parsons'
performance, especially the 6-foot-9 freshman's
physical style of play.
"The good thing was that he took the ball
to the hole and did follow up some offensive
rebounds," Shyatt said. "We've been physically
weak in terms of getting to the glass, so that was
a good thing."
Freshman Nick Calathes made a mark of
his own by adding 7 points, which included a
buzzer-beating 3-pointer that gave his team the
advantage after two quarters. Other standouts
included Jai Lucas, who scored 7 points, and
Speights, who contributed 9.
One of the more intriguing lineups featured a
three-guard setup of Lucas, Calathes and junior
Sophomore Dan Werner, who scored 7 points,
said the trio proved difficult to handle.
"It was tough," Werner said. "You had to
help pressure the ball a little bit. They had two
McDonald's All Americans and a guy who won
two national championships, so it was difficult,
but I thought we handled it really well."
"We just finished watching the tape,
and there's a lot of mixed emotions,
a little disappointed really."
UF men's basketball associate head coach
Sophomore Jonathan Mitchell said he believes
the team has already begun to develop an iden-
"We're going to run and gun," Mitchell said.
"We don't have the size down low, so we're just
going to go out there and run. ... It's a lot of fun,
and it's obviously easy for the coaches because
they don't have to call any plays."
After his first taste of action, Mitchell said he
can't wait for the season opener against Flagler
College on Nov. 1.
"I think it was good for us," he said. "It was
the first time we got to put on a uniform and be
out there in front of a crowd, especially with us
being a young team.
"I just came out there and tried to get every-
body involved and tried to teach the young guys.
... It was just good to finally be out there."

had something that was encouraging,"

In UF coach Urban Meyer's opinion,
the most important play of Saturday's win
against Kentucky came with quarterback
Tim Tebow on the sideline.
Before Tebow connected with Percy
Harvin for 40 yards and rumbled into the
end zone from 2 yards out on the Gators'
final drive, the quarterback's former high
school rival, Brandon James, delivered the

That's not normally all that impressive.
But on this occasion the return team de-
served credit, given that James was the only
member of the unit who had not inched into
Kentucky territory to prepare for a possible

Meyer said. "I can't believe that happened.
