Sorority blamed for damage


By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org


UF's chapter of Zeta Tau
Alpha Sorority is awaiting
disciplinary action after the
manager of a Tampa restaurant
complained her establishment
was damaged when the soror-
ity held a social there.
Members of the group,
who were at the Columbia
Restaurant in Ybor City on
Oct. 11, started fights, vomited
in various parts of the restau-
rant and stole liquor from the


bar, the manager wrote in an
e-mail to UF President Bernie
Machen.
The e-mail from Caroline
O'Connor, manager of sales
and catering for the restaurant
- stated a toilet and baby-
changing table in the men's
restroom were damaged, and
the handle of an entrance door
was ripped off.
"The group turned our 102-
year-old, fine-dining restaurant
into a frat house," O'Connor
wrote.
Steve Orlando, UF spokes-
man, said 250 people attended


"I feel the entire group
should be disciplined in
some manner."

The e-mail stated about 80
percent of the sorority women
and their dates arrived at the
Columbia Restaurant intoxi-
cated.
The sorority has not been
disciplined, but Orlando said


most of the trouble was caused
by sorority members' dates.
The restaurant asked Zeta
Tau Alpha, known as Zeta, to
leave earlier than scheduled
because the group's behavior
was so out of hand, O'Connor
wrote.
"I feel the entire group
should be disciplined in some
manner," O'Connor wrote. "We
are extremely disappointed in
the behavior of your students."
Orlando said after Machen
received the e-mail, he referred

Model UN works to help African families


* THE GROUP IS COLLECTING
MONEY FOR A CAMPAIGN.

By APRIL DUDASH

The UF Model United Nations will
spread awareness about malaria prevention
during United Nations Day today.
This year's theme for United Nations
Day is improving the standard of global
health.
Model UN President Justin Berlin said
the group will collect donations for Nothing
But Nets, a campaign that provides mosqui-
to bed nets to malaria-prone areas in Africa.
Each net costs $10 and is given to African
families that are at risk.
Berlin, a political science junior, said
Model UN will pass out blue awareness
ribbons on the Plaza of the Americas from
9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The group will have a Nothing But Nets
basketball session by having people shoot
baskets in a Fisher-Price basketball hoop,
he said.
Berlin said the group will also paint a
blue mural on the 34th Street Wall in honor
of the national holiday.
The Model UN organization discusses
current events on a weekly basis and raises
money for nonprofit organizations.
Team members attend competitions and
represent countries while researching for-
eign policies, Berlin said.
"We usually try to represent countries
that aren't very prominent," he said.
Lesser-known countries have unique
policies that allow the Model UN team to be

Despite representing UF at national and
regional conferences, Berlin said many peo-
ple don't know what the organization does.
"Some people actually ask me if it's a
modeling agency," he said.
The group's next conference, the
Southern Regional Model United Nations,
will take place in Atlanta from Nov. 15 to
Nov. 17.
The group took first place at the confer-


ence last year and promised to attend again,
Berlin said.
The organization plans to take about 33
members to represent Cameroon, Yemen
and Guatemala, he said.
UF's Model UN has a diverse member-
ship of about 100 active students, Berlin
said. This includes members from Ghana
and Latin America, he said.

sexual


battery

By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

A UF student was arrested
and charged Monday with
sexual battery of an 18-year-old
female student.
John James Petracco, a 19-
year-old resident of the Springs
Residential Complex on UF's
campus, allegedly sexually as-
saulted the student early Oct. 17,
according to an arrest report.
UPD Capt. Jeff Holcomb
said Petracco was
On ,transported to the
Campus Alachua County
Sheriff's Office
jail.
UPD Criminal Investigations
Division handed over the open
investigation to the state attor-
ney's office, Holcomb said.
Alachua County jail records
said Petracco was released at
about 3 p.m. Tuesday.
Jail and'circuit court records
said that Petracco's bond, which
was set at $50,000, was paid
by Roundtree Bonding, a local
agency.
A GPS unit, or Global
Positioning System, had to be
attached to Petracco within 48
hours of release, circuit-court
records stated.
A curfew was also set to
prevent Petracco from being
out from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m., except
for work or school purposes, re-
cords said.
The records also said that

Zeta Tau Alpha collects : ,


money for breast cancer


* WOMEN ASKED FOR DONATIONS
FOR KISS AWAY BREAST CANCER.

By CASEY BROOKE LAWSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

The UF chapter of Zeta Tau Alpha
Sorority began its first day of fundraising
for breast cancer awareness and educa-
tion in Turlington Plaza on Tuesday.
The table collected a little more than
$200, said Erin Shafter, president of Zeta
Tau Alpha's UF chapter.
Members of the sorority, known as
Zeta, asked passersby for donations for
the three-day event called Kiss Away
Breast Cancer.
Any amount of money allowed donors
to draw a set of lips or kiss the banner af-
ter applying lipstick.
"My mother was a breast cancer survi-
vor, so I always donate to these causes,"
said Matt Novack, a UF graduate student,
as he drew lips on the banner.
The Kiss Away Breast Cancer table will


be in Turlington Plaza through Thursday.
The sorority hopes to collect more
than $300 today, Shafter said.
"This fundraiser is about much more
than money," Shafter said. "It's about
awareness."
The purpose of Kiss Away Breast
Cancer is to raise money
On and awareness for its cause
Campus and upcoming philanthropy,
Zeta Linedance, which is on
Thursday.
For the event, members of Zeta pair
up with members of fraternities at UF to
perform a dance.
The event will be hosted at The Venue
in downtown Gainesville.
Shafter said she hopes to raise $30,000
by the end of Thursday's event.
The sorority has raised about $20,000
so far this month.
"Breast cancer affects many, many
women in the U.S. and around the
world," Safter said. "This event allows
us to come together to make a larger
impact."

Pumpkin prices creep up


Give Me Your Best Shot
UF student Nick Karlovich winces as he is given a flu shot on the Reitz Union
Colonnade on Tuesday. The Flu Clinic at the UF Student Health Care Center
set up a booth on the colonnade and in Shands at UF to be more accessible
to students. The cost of flu shots is $5 for students and $25 for employees.
The shots will be offered at the colonnade and Founder's Gallery at Shands
for the next four weeks, according to the Student Health Care Center's Web
site.


By BONNIE STROUSE
Alligator Contributing Writer

Sonya Robbins picked up a 5-pound
pumpkin off the table at a pumpkin' stand in
Gainesville, examining it in her left hand and
its price tag in her right, flipping the tag over
as if looking for a magic number to appear.
She then placed both back on the table and
left the stand empty-handed.
"I don't remember spending this much on
a pumpkin," the Gainesville resident said.
Pumpkins are in high demand this year,
but shipments are small and prices are
high because of unfavorable weather, said
Craig Smouse, produce manager at Ward's
Supermarket.
The price of pumpkins has gone up about
4 cents a pound, but the main concern is not
the price difference, he said.
Smouse said rainy weather is making
pumpkins rot, and dry weather in some
pumpkin-producing states is causing the
crop to thin.
"It's more of a quality issue," he said. "No
one wants a rotten pumpkin."
Ward's usually sells about 1,200 to 1,500
pumpkins annually, but Smouse is not sure it
will happen this year.
The weather has caused shipping costs to
rise as well, he said.
Florida's hot and humid climate makes
pumpkin production difficult, so pumpkins
have to be shipped from the west.
But some of the best pumpkin states are
not doing well this year.
Illinois, the top pumpkin-producing state,
had problems with its crop this year because
of adverse effects of drought and flooding,
said Gary Lucier, an agricultural economist
with the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Lucier said there is no evidence that there
will be a national shortage, but local and re-
gional weather issues frequently cause prob-
lems with the pumpkin crop every year.
"On a normal year, drier states usually do
really well, but this year they aren't," Smouse
said.
There is also an additional fuel charge for
shipping the seasonal gourds.


"It's not terrible if you consider gas prices,"
he said, "but it's unfortunate that we have to
pass the additional cost on to consumers."
People usually buy pumpkins weighing
about 15 to 20 pounds, usually costing about
45 cents per pound, Smouse said.
But it now costs about 49 cents per pound,
depending on the store, he added.
The week before Halloween should
predict how well pumpkin sales will go for
Ward's, he said.
The first pumpkin shipment was received
on time, and there are now about 200 to 300
pumpkins on display.
"On a normal year, drier states
usually do really well, but this year
they aren't."
Craig Smouse
Ward's Supermarket produce manager

"Only time will tell," Smouse said. "I'm
hoping to sell at least 1,200, but there are no
guarantees at this point."
Ken Boote, an agricultural science pro-
fessor at UF, said he is not surprised at the
shortage.
"The whole upper South, where it is cool
enough to grow pumpkins, is suffering a
major drought which would severely impact
production," he said.
Alachua County residents and pumpkin
consumers have mixed thoughts about the
shortage and its effects.
Kristen Freeman, a Gainesville resident,
said she doesn't care about the price change.
She said her family buys pumpkins from
her children's elementary school because the
proceeds go toward the youth department.
"It doesn't matter what the price is, since it
goes to the school," Freeman said. "I've done
it for the past six years."
But other Gainesville residents, like
Robbins, are unhappy about the price in-
crease.
"For someone who celebrates Halloween,
I should be getting two pumpkins for the
price of one," Robbins said. "It shouldn't be
the other way around."

City torn on development plan


By KORI FREDERICK
Alligator Writer

After two days of commission
meetings, protests and delibera-
tion, the City Commission did not
reach a decision by press time
Tuesday night on whether to
approve the creation of Hatchet
Creek Development. The meeting
started at 3 p.m. Tuesday.
The development, which
would be built at 2100 NE 39th
St. surrounding the Ironwood
Golf Course, has been the source
of controversy among the devel-
opers, the Gainesville Regional
Airport and the residents of East
Gainesville.
But airport officials said part
of the development is too dose to
their facility.
East Gainesville residents
have supported the development
and said it will enhance business
in the underdeveloped area of
town.
Some commissioners say they
do not feel the development


would be as important to East
Gainesville as the residents do.
"This is not going to solve all
of East Gainesville's problems,"
said Commissioner Jeanna
Mastrodicasa. "It might solve
some of them, but it's not going to
solve all of them."
"This is not going to solve
all of East Gainesville's
problems."
Jeanna Mastrodicasa
city commissioner

The commission questioned
the ability of the developers to
preserve the city's environmental
interests in the area and lessen the
noise level.
Commissioners also ques-
tioned why the airport, which
says about 359 acres of the land
lies in the airport's noise zone,
had not objected to other devel-
opments nearby.
Commissioner Craig Lowe
said the development does not


fall within the parameters to
technically be considered East
Gainesville.
But he said he feels that be-
tween it and the new Wal-Mart
being built on the east side of
town, hopefully more developers
would be more inclined to build
in the area.
"I hope the areas of town that
have been neglected will not
continue to be neglected," Lowe
said.
The airport presented its case
to the commission Tuesday after-
noon, citing the noise levels from
the planes as far too loud to build
a development.
Linda Shelley, a consultant
from Tallahassee representing the
developer, said part of the prob-
lem with the "noise contours"
- the high level of noise created
by the planes flying over is the
maps have not been updated.
"It's likely you would with-
draw that noise contour if those
maps were updated," Shelley
said.


Senate advocates fee


By ILEANA MORALES
Alligator Writer
imorales@alligator.org

The Student Senate passed a
referendum Tuesday announc-
ing its support for charging a fee
on top of tuition for renewable
energy projects.
The referendum advocates
charging students 50 cents
per credit hour to be used for
renewable energy projects in-
cluding solar energy, alternative
fuels and thermal conversion
systems on campus.
A referendum only seeks to
announce the Senate's opinion
on an issue.
Sen. Mackenzie Ezell, who
represents the College of
Engineering, said she estimates
the fee would generate $650,000
per year toward energy-effi-


ciency projects at UF.
Ezell said she would proba-
bly present the legislation to the
Board of Trustees, UF's highest


governing body.


She said


Student she hopes
Government the board
will pass the
legislation.
If the board were to pass it,
the fee would go to the Board of
Governors, the State University
System's top governing body.
After that, it would go to the
state Legislature.
Kelly Moosbrugger, treasur-
er for Gators for a Sustainable
Campus, will also present the
referendum.
"Students have the power
in it to help out with renewable
energy," Moosbrugger said.

Zeta Tau Alpha under

fire after social
W ay to embarrass all of UF.
WZeta Tau Alpha Sorority's actions at a semifor-

Restaurant in Ybor City prompted the restaurant to e-mail a
complaint to UF President Bernie Machen.
"The group turned our 102-year-old, fine-dining res-
taurant into a frat house," wrote Caroline O'Connor, the
restaurant's manager of sales and catering.
While we wait to hear how UF plans to discipline the
group, we can't help but throw in our 2 cents.
Even though UF spokesman Steve Orlando said most of
the damage was caused by the sorority members' dates, Zeta
must be held responsible. It's a shame the women's dates
couldn't refrain from starting fights and vomiting in the res-
taurant. It's a shame the men damaged parts of the men's re-
stroom. It's unacceptable that they stole liquor from the bar.
But the women of Zeta chose who to invite to their func-
tion, and now they must accept the consequences.
It's a shame this is a reflection on the entire UF communi-
ty. We hope these students didn't think they could get away
with what they did because they are Greek. But it sure is nice
of the national office of Zeta to pay for the damage, isn't it?
We know UF's sororities and fraternities do a lot to raise
money for charities. We know they host philanthropies and
volunteer in the community. We know sororities and fraterni-
ties try hard to shake the stereotypes that have plagued them
since ancient times, when Partius Animalopolus drank too
much wine at a toga party in Sparta.
But one bad grape spoils the bunch.
No one's going to remember how much money the soror-
ity raised for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the sorority's
national philanthropy.
But everyone will remember the time its women trashed
a restaurant.



Plight of the Pumpkins


ou may want to re-
think that fabulous
Halloween party you
were planning or at least
make sure the Facebook
invitation states "BYOP"
- that's Bring Your Own
Pumpkin.
Your apple-bobbing con-
test will still go off without
a hitch, though.
Yes, Gainesville is ex-
periencing a pumpkin
shortage, which is sending
prices through the roof of a
haunted mansion.
What does this mean for
Gaines-Villains? Jack-o'-lan-
terns may be few and far
between on porches when
you go trick-or-treating.
Money-wise, it'll cost you
about an extra four cents per
pound of pumpkin. For a 20-
pound pumpkin, that means


you'll be shelling out an ex-
tra dollar. Not a monstrous
problem, we know, but the
bigger issue is the quality of
pumpkins.
Less-than-ideal weather
conditions throughout the
South have thinned pump-
kin crops, and rain is causing
the pumpkins to deteriorate
like corpses in a creepy
graveyard.
Rotten pumpkins aren't
exactly the best for carving
contests and roasted seeds,
not to mention pumpkin
pies. Your costumes should
be gruesome, not the inside
of your pumpkin.
So if you plan to purchase
a plump pumpkin, prepare
to spend a few more bucks
and be patient. Ghoulish
things come to those who
wait.

Column

Machen won't ease UF's financial woes


"m starting to notice something here.
Apparently, the issue of a lack of advisers in UF's
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences has come up again
- just days after a new technology fee was announced.
The technology problem that should have been "rem-
edied" by the technology fee was brought up on the heels
of the Florida Tomorrow campaign.
The campaign, which is raising obscene amounts of
money for the future while ignoring the present, turned
our eyes away from a 5-percent tuition hike, which was
supposed to be the most logical alternative to UP President
Bernie Machen's proposed $1,000 Academic Enhancement
Program fee.
That fee was lauded as the panacea for all of UF's origi-
nal financial ails, money from parents' pockets that Bright
Futures could never provide.
Next thing you know, Machen will propose an advis-
ing fee right before he discusses the lack of housing on
campus.
Oh, Bernie, why must you beguile us so? The students,
parents and teachers you have served for four years de-
serve better than this.
Oh wait, now I know, you want UF in the top 10 of
a magazine that draws a lot of controversy for its overly
mathematical approach to ranking colleges.
Loyal readers, consider what Machen did the last time
he was a college president.
The University of Utah, his old employer, is not a Top-
10 public university. In fact, it isn't even ranked anywhere
on the list. On their profile, the Utes are listed as a third-
tier school out of four tiers.
The national average for in-state tuition is about
$5,500, according to a CNN article. The higher the tuition,
the more money and "prestige." This year, Utah's in-state
tuition is about $5,000, while UF's is about $3,300.
A university's endowment is a measure of how much


Vincent Gagliano
letters@alligator.org


schools can spend on projects
to improve its prestige. Utah's
endowment is about $509,000
- about half of ours.
On Monday, members of
Students for a Democratic Society
were protesting Machen's poten-
tial investment in the war in Iraq.
After, all, a school with money
from the war could raise its rank-


ings even more.
Florida, while being one of the most populous states
in the country, also has one of the lowest tuitions. Even
though those low prices are good news for parents and
students, they provide lower revenues for universities,
which must teach with fewer resources than universities
in other states.
As such, Bright Futures makes public universities more
competitive with out-of-state colleges and private univer-
sities, which charge more tuition and give more aid, but it
is also a Faustian bargain.
Because the program is funded by the Florida Lottery,
gamblers must first lose thousands of dollars of their own
money for students to get a college education. If tuition
went up, if more students qualified for more aid money
and if people bought fewer tickets, that would form the
perfect recipe for the scholarship program's collapse.
That's why so many of the new fees aren't covered by
Bright Futures.
And when U.S. News' rankings were released this
year, UF slipped from 13th to 17th. If Machen couldn't do
anything for a school ranked near the bottom of the barrel,
what can he do for a Top-20 flagship state university?
Very little, if anything.

Guest column

Taking away Student Honor Court's power not an option


Have spent nearly 16 of the past 24
hours discussing the situation regard-
ing the report and recommendations
of the Student Conduct Code Review
Committee.
I've spoken with other past Honor
Court chancellors, and I have been in di-
rect communication with Gene Zdziarski,
the dean of students, regarding the report
and proposals made by the committee.
The article published Tuesday in the
Alligator only touches upon the real issue.
If implemented, the committee's recom-
mendations regarding the Honor Code and
the Honor Court would totally remove the
ability of a student who has been accused
of academic dishonesty to have his or her
case heard by the Student Honor Court.
Professor Kim Tanzer, the review com-
mittee's co-chair, said the Faculty Senate
is not looking to dismantle the Honor
Court.
This is simply untrue, since the pro-
posed plan, as stated in the report, is to
take away the Honor Court's authority to
hear academic dishonesty cases and leave
the shell of the Honor Court intact.


If the recommendations of the report
are implemented, the Honor Court will
cease to exist as a student-led judicial
body, period.
This flies in the face of the Honor Code
itself, which states in the preamble, "A
student-run Honor Court and faculty
support are crucial to the success of. the
Honor Code. The quality of a University of
Florida education is dependent upon the
community acceptance and enforcement
of the Honor Code."
There are faculty members at UF who
have, for quite some time, disagreed with
the basic foundation statement of the
Honor Court.
While the opinions disguised as facts
in the report of the Student Conduct Code
Review Committee are flawed, one aspect
of the report really hits the target.
On -Page 4 of the report, the committee
cuts to the crux of the problem: "Faculty
input in academic conduct issues is es-
sential to institutional integrity. Without
such representation, many faculty do not
report academic misconduct to the Dean of
Students Office. Instead they may invent


Bruce-Alan
Barnard
Speaking Out


alternative, ad hoc
procedures, which
violate UF policy and
do not benefit either
the students or the


institution."
So in the report, the committee itself
acknowledges the fundamental problem
many of the Honor Court chancellors have
been complaining about for nearly two
decades: "Many faculty" do not like the
Honor Court.
The committee then recommended that
the Student Conduct-Committee which
has faculty representation hears cases,
and that the Student Honor Court ceases to
function as a student judicial body as man-
dated under the Florida Administrative
Code and the Honor Code.
So the real issue is clear: The. Honor
Court is student-led, and many faculty do
not like this, so they violate UF policy and
the Florida Administrative Code to the
detriment of students and the institution.
Yet incredibly, the committee does not
address the possibility of having the ad-
ministration pressure the faculty to follow


the law. Instead, they wish to change it to
accommodate their beliefs, which are to-
tally contrary to the Student Honor Code.
Most UF students will never serve on
the Student Honor Court and, to be sure,
only a small fraction of students will
invoke their right to be heard before the
Honor Court, but the Honor Court is an
integral part of our Honor Code.
Students should be outraged at the
possibility that the administration may
allow the faculty to take this right away
from them.
Students should not take losing their
right to be heard in the Student Honor
Court lightly. Many alumni are doing
everything they can to prevent the Honor
Code from being changed, but it will take
an outcry from the student body to ensure
the Honor Court remains intact.
I would encourage students to take a
stand on this important issue before this
right is irrevocably stripped from them
and future students such as my 6-year-old
daughter Abigail (class of 2023).
Bruce-Alan Barnard was UF Honor Court
chancellor in 1991-1992.

h oUF LIBRARIES

'Alice' exhibit opens


Thomas Rachal, a UF anthropology senior, reads a gallery program for "The Afterlife of Alice in
Wonderland" exhibit in Smathers Library on Tuesday afternoon.


By OLEE FOWLER
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF students can now explore Alice's
Wonderland for themselves in the "The
Afterlife of Alice in Wonderland" ex-
hibit displayed on the second floor of
the Smathers Library.
The exhibit, which will be up
until Dec. 15, was put together by
the department of special collections
in the Baldwin Library of Historical
Children's Literature and showcases a
variety of Alice-related materials that
followed the publication of the original
series of novels by Lewis Carroll.
The exhibit features illustrations of
characters on the walls and informa-
tional boards, including a .biography
on Carroll and different adaptations
of the tale.
"It's hilarious to see how many
different stories were spawned off by
'Alice in Wonderland,'" said Rachael
Scott, a UF student and an intern who


worked on the exhibit. "My favorite
one is about a professor's experience
through the land of quantum physics."
"It's hilarious to see how
many different stories were .
spawned off by 'Alice in Won-
derland."'
Rachael Scott
exhibit intern


One of the main purposes of the
exhibit is to educate people on the
various versions of the story based on
the original text rather than the Disney
adaptation, said Rita Smith, curator of
the Baldwin Library and exhibit .coor-
dinator.
One of the highlights is the rare
version of "Alice's Adventures in
Wonderland," which is accompanied
with 12 illustrations created by famous
Spanish artist Salvador Dali.


Campus highlights progress during Sustainability Day


* THE EVENT WILL BE HELD ON THE
REITZ UNION NORTH LAWN.

By KORI FREDERICK
Alligator Writer

UF's efforts to make its campus more en-
vironmentally friendly will be highlighted
today for the university's Sustainability Day.


The event lasts from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the
Reitz Union North Lawn.
A main goal of the event is to regain stu-
dent approval for a 50-cent per credit tuition
increase for a renewable energy fee.
Student Government's Environmental
Affairs cabinet and the Office of
Sustainability will host a forum to discuss
the renewable energy fee referendum
that was passed last spring, said Kelly


Moosbrugger, a former intern at the office
of sustainability.
Seventy-eight percent of students voted
in favor of the fee, but the ad-
On ministration decided to hold off
Campus on the fee until receiving more
feedback.
At noon, there will be a renewable energy
forum discussing the fee. The panel will in-
clude an SG representative, Moosbrugger


and various UF faculty and staff who have
been involved with renewable energy.
Moosbrugger said the event is designed
to inform students about what the campus
is doing to increase its environmental lon-
gevity.
UF President Bernie Machen will present
UF's sustainability report card, where he
will review the university's environmental
efforts over the past year.

The office apologized to the restaurant and has cor-
responded with Zeta's national office about punishing
the chapter, Orlando said.
Stacey Voigt, supervisor of the UF Zeta chapter, said
she could not comment on what punishments there
could be. Voigt said she didn't know how much the
damages would cost the restaurant.
The chapter is currently interviewing every mem-
ber of the chapter as part of an investigation that could
take several weeks, she said.
Orlando said the sorority's national office also apol-
ogized to the restaurant, offered to pay for the damage
costs and told the UF chapter it is prohibited from any
activities involving alcohol until further notice.
"It's awfully unfortunate that the university was
sort of semi-officially represented in a way like this,"
Orlando said.

The woman reported the in-
cident around 11 a.m. Friday to
the UPD Criminal Investigations
Division, the arrest report stated.
The investigation was opened
Friday.
The woman identified Petracco
from his Florida driver's license
photograph, the report stated.
The woman attended a function


with Petracco, who she said was
her'friend, on the evening of Oct.
16, the report stated.
The woman said she drank alco-
hol and became intoxicated.
Around 2 a.m., the woman left
the function with Petracco and said
she was going to "attempt to walk
to her dormitory," the report said.
Petracco told the woman that she
could stay in his dorm room, the
report stated.
The woman said she had known
Petracco for four years and did not


think it was a "big deal" to stay
with him.
The woman said she and
Petracco were not involved in a
sexual relationship, the report said.
Steve Orlando, UF spokesman,
said he could not confirm by press
time if any letters or e-mails are be-
ing sent to UF students about the
alleged sexual battery on campus.
Orlando could also not confirm
by press time if students living in
Springs Residential Complex were
notified of the incident.


Model UN plans to attend conference in Atlanta

A lot of different majors are also represented.
"We have everything from engineering majors to

Berlin said UF's Model UN plans to travel to about


eight conferences this year, including ones in Chicago,
New Orleans and New York City.
Berlin said these opportunities allow
NLeo l members to compete with peers from
News Yale University, Harvard University and
Duke University.
"And we beat them a lot of the time," he said.

Getting Started


How Do I Find An
Apartment?
Check with the office of Off-Campus
Life at (352) 392-2161, ext. 214, or
their web site http://www.dso.ufl.edu/
offcampus for assistance.
Rental opportunities may also be
found in the classified sections of The
Gainesville Sun, The Independent
Florida Alligator, and bulletin boards
around campus.

What Should I Look For In
An Apartment?
FUNCTION: Check appliances, run
water in all sinks, showers and tubs,
flush toilets, and check air conditioning
and heating.

APPEARANCE: Is it clean? Do the
carpets look worn or smell bad? Has
the apartment been recently painted?
Do the walls have nail holes?
INVENTORY: Note all defects on the
inventory sheet or check-in list signed


by the landlord or an impartial witness.
Photograph or videotape the apartment
at move in.
In Gainesville, there is a glut of
available apartments. You should
examine several apartments before
signing a lease.
APPLICATION DEPOSITS: Never put
down a deposit to hold an apartment
unless you have a written agreement
indicating whether it is refundable.

COST: Can you afford it? Even if your
roommates leave?

LOCATION: Is the neighborhood safe?
Even at night?
Are you within easy walking or
cycling distance of campus?
Are buses available?
CITY LIMITS: Gainesville protects
tenants by enforcing housing codes. The
city will order landlords to make repairs.
If a complaint is filed, Alachua


County will inspect apartments and
issue a report of violations.

MODEL APARTMENTS: Never sign
a lease based upon a model. Insist on
seeing your actual apartment.

PEST CONTROL: Does the landlord
maintain a regular spraying program?

LANDLORD: Speak to tenants of the
apartment complex. Does the landlord
make a habit of unannounced entries?
Are repairs made quickly?

NOISE AND PARKING: Check for
noise and parking problems by visiting
the apartment at various times during
the day, at night and on weekends.
SAFETY: Are there deadbolts on the
doors? Are hallways and parking lots
well lit? If there are sliding glass doors,
are there adequate locks to deter forced
entry?
You can contact the Alachua County
Sheriff's Office or the Gainesville Police
Department to obtain information on
crime in the area.
SINGLE-FAMILY HOUSING: The
landlord may legally provide fewer
services for houses and duplexes. The
landlord may also shift maintenance
responsibilities to you in the lease.
In some neighborhoods, only three
unrelated persons may live together.
Check with the city if you plan on
having more than two roommates.

How Do I Find A Good
Roommate?
Check the Off-Campus Life web site:
http://www.dso.ufl.edu/offcampus
Also check bulletin boards around
campus and classified ads as additional
sources.
Discuss with potential roommates


preferences in food, music, personal
habits, sleeping and study hours,
friends and finances.
An open and frank appraisal of each
other's likes, dislikes, and expectations
will increase the chances of an enjoyable
shared living experience.
A written roommate agreement is
advisable.


Do I Really Need Insurance
For My Personal Property?
Yes.
Unless you are financially able to
replace all your belongings, you should
have insurance.
Proper insurance coverage will
protect you against the loss of your
valuables in most circumstances.
Landlords are legally responsible
for such losses only under very specific,
limited circumstances which may be
very difficult to prove in court,
If you are a resident-relative of your
parents, your personal property may
be insured through their homeowner's
policy.
Have your parents confirm the
coverage in writing with their insurance
agent.
If coverage is not available through
your parents' homeowner's policy,
you may be able to purchase renter's
insurance.
Even with insurance, there are
certain precautions you should always
take.
Always lock your apartment securely
even if you are only going next door.
Never leave jewelry, cameras, cash,
checkbooks, credit cards, or other
valuables in plain sight.

Getting Along
What Can I Do About Noisy Neighbors?
Try to reason with the neighbor to reach an acceptable compromise.
Thin walls and conflicting schedules make some amount of noise
disturbance an unavoidable reality of apartment living.
Ask the landlord for assistance.
If the landlord refuses to correct the problem, you may be able to
break your lease.
Because the law in this area is so poorly developed, legal
representation is a necessity.
In extreme cases, call the police and report the matter.
Unfortunately, this can lead to revenge and reprisals. Document the
disturbances (written log, witnessess, audiotape).

I Can't Stand My Roommate. What Can I Do?
Immediately discuss the matter with your roommate.
Don't ignore the problem with the hope that it will go away. A little
give and take may result in a livable compromise.
Under the Act, your landlord is not responsible for most roommate
disputes.
If your roommate is violating the lease, you should consult an
attorney.

Can My Rent Be Increased
During My Lease Term?
Not unless the lease contains a specific provision allowing for a rent
increase.
From the tenant's perspective, one of the primary reasons for having
a written lease is to lock in the rent for the rental period. Normally, you
should not sign a lease providing for a rent increase.


1, 7.~c


My Landlord Refuses To Make Repairs.
What Can I Do?


You MAY be able to either withhold your rent or
terminate your lease if the problem constitutes a
material breach of the lease or the Act. You must follow
the exact requirements of the Act.
You must give the landlord a written notice
demanding the repairs be made in seven days. The
notice must indicate your intention to terminate the
lease or withhold rent if the repairs are not made.
This is a complicated process and the legal
consequences are very serious. You should obtain
legal advice before attempting to terminate your lease
or withhold rent.
Can I Deduct Repair Costs From My
Rent?
No. The Act does not authorize you to make repairs
or to recover the cost of such repairs. In fact, most
apartment leases prohibit repairs by tenants.
When the landlord refuses to make repairs, the
Act gives you a qualified right to terminate the lease
or withhold rent.
As previously indicated, you should consult an
attorney before attempting to terminate the lease or
withhold rent.

Can My Landlord Enter My
Apartment Without Notice?
No.
Unless there is an emergency, or you have
abandoned your apartment, the landlord must.
provide reasonable notice and obtain your consent
prior to entering your apartment. .
You cannot unreasonably withhold consent. If
the landlord persists in entering without notice or
consent, contact an attorney.

How Soon Must I Renew My
Lease?
There is no time period established by the Act.
You should not sign a lease that provides for
automatic renewals or requires you to give the
landlord a notice of nonrenewal.
If you do sign such a lease, you must strictly
comply with the notice requirements imposed by
the lease.
If the lease does not specify otherwise, renewals
are a matter of general contract law.
The landlord cannot force you to renew prior to
the end of your lease.
However, if you do not renew by the landlord's
"deadline", the landlord may rent your apartment
to someone else.


Getting Out


Can I Break My Lease Because ...
"I am graduating?" No!
"My roommate left?" No!
"I cannot afford the rent?"* No!
"I need to work this summer?" No!
"The neighborhood is unsafe?" No!
Under the Act, you can only terminate the lease
if the landlord is materially violating your lease or
the Act.
You should obtain legal advice before attempting
to terminate your lease.
In many cases, the best thing you can do is find
replacement tenants.

Can I Sublet My Apartment?
Usually. The landlord cannot unreasonably
withhold consent to an assignment or sublease.
The landlord may require potential replacement
tenants to submit an application including a credit
check.
The landlord may also charge a reasonable
sublet fee even when you provide the replacement
tenants.
Normally you remain liable under your lease if
the replacement tenants do not pay rent or damage
the apartment.
Some landlords will release you from the
obligations of your lease. If you are being released,
get it in writing.


Can I Just Move Out And
Forfeit My Security Deposit?
No.
Some tenants will walk out on a lease and
receive no adverse action, while others will be
pursued to the fullest extent of the law.
In Gainesville's current rental market, the
odds are that you will be sued unless you supply
acceptable replacement tenants.
Your losses in court will not be limited to your
security deposit, but will include rent for each
month the apartment remains vacant during
the term of your lease, plus court costs and the
landlord's attorney's fees.

Getting it Back

What Steps Can I Take
To Protect My Security
Deposit?
When you take occupancy
of the apartment, complete a
thorough written inventory of
the apartment's condition and
have the landlord or an impartial
witness sign the inventory.
Make sure you keep a copy of
the inventory. This helps protect
you from the landlord claiming you
caused pre-existing damage.
When you move out, completely
and thoroughly clean the
apartment.
Some landlords provide a
checklist outlining the cleaning
they expect you to do.
Keep all your receipts for
cleaning supplies and professional
carpet cleaning as evidence.
Before you leave, ask the
landlord to inspect the apartment
with you.
Complete a move-out checklist
and make sure the landlord signs
and dates it.
Use an impartial witness if the
landlord is not available or refuses
your request.
Move-in and move-out
photographs or videotape are also
strongly recommended in case
there is a dispute.


Does The Law Require
Interest Payments On
Security Deposits?
Landlords must hold security
deposits in one of three methods.
Two methods of holding the

No.


your last month's rent.


Landlords can legally evict you The purpose of the security
for non-payment of rent even when deposit is to protect the landlord
your "security" deposit is equal to against damages to the apartment.


deposits require interest to be
paid.
The method which does not
require interest payments is the
one most landlords use.
The landlord is required to
inform you in writing how your
deposit is being held, where it is
held, and whether you will receive
interest.


What Can I Do If My
Landlord Doesn't Return
My Deposit?
A landlord shall have 15 days
after termination of the lease
to return the security deposit
together with interest if otherwise
required, if he or she does not
intend to impose a claim on the
security deposit.


If the landlord intends to impose
a claim on the security deposit,
he or she shall have 30 days to
give the tenant written notice by
certified mail, stating how much is
going to be deducted and why.
You must object to the deduction
in writing within 15 days from
the date you receive the notice,
or the landlord will be authorized

to deduct his or her claim from your security
deposit.
If the landlord fails to give the required
notice within the 30-day period, he or she
forfeits the right to impose a claim upon the
security deposit.
However, if you damaged the apartment,
the landlord can sue you even when the 30-day
notice is not given.
Because the landlord can also get court costs
and attorney's fees, you should consult an
attorney before filing any lawsuits.


Getting Evicted continued


What Are My Duties As A
Tenant?
First, last, and always PAY RENT!
Comply with all other lease terms.
*Comply with all rules and regulations.
Comply with housing and health
codes.
Comply with all zoning restrictions.
Keep the apartment clean and
sanitary.
Keep plumbing fixtures sanitary.
Do not damage the apartment.
Do not disturb your neighbors.


What Exactly Is An Eviction?
- An eviction is the formal end to your
right to occupy the apartment. It does
not end your duty to pay rent.
An eviction starts with a Summons.
You must file an Answer within 5 days.
Contact an attorney immediately.
If the court rules against you,
a judgment for possession of the
apartment, unpaid rent, late fees,
interest, court costs and attorney's fees
will be entered for the landlord.
The sheriff will post a notice at the
apartment that requires you to vacate
in 24 hours.
If you do not vacate within 24 hours,
the sheriff will remove you and your
personal property from the apartment.


What Can Happen If I Don't Pay
Rent?
Failure to pay rent is the quickest
way to be evicted.
The landlord will serve a notice
demanding payment of rent or
possession of the apartment.
If you fail to comply with the demand
within 3 days, excluding weekends and
holidays, eviction proceedings may be
started.
Neither surrender of the apartment


nor eviction ends your liability for rent.
You should immediately contact an
attorney upon receipt of a 3-day notice.


Can I Be Evicted For Any Other
Reason?
Yes.
Your lease can be terminated if you
violate any -lease terms, rules and
regulations, or the Act.
If your lease is terminated and you do
not vacate the apartment, the landlord
may immediately file for your eviction.
Termination begins with a 7-day
notice.
Your options depend on whether the
violations are classified as "curable" or
"noncurable".
If you receive either type of notice,
you should immediately contact an
attorney.
Neither termination of your lease, nor
your eviction from the apartment ends
your liability for rent.

CITY COOES

NOI E :
One of the most common complaints the university receives about off campus students concerns noise
disturbances. Gainesville does have a noise ordinance and the city takes a very active approach in the
enforcement of noise complaints. The noise ordinance gives police the authority to issue a citation to
those in violation.

Noise disturbance, as defined by the ordinance, is any sound which:
1) Disturbs a reasonable person of normal sensitivities;
2) Exceeds the sound level units set forth in the ordinance; or
3) Is plainly audible defined as any noise or sound that can be clearly heard by a person using his/her
faculties, at a distance of 200 feet or more from the real property line of the source of the sound or noise.

OCCUPANCY:.
The number of unrelated people allowed to live together in a single family zoned district is regulated by
the City of Gainesville. The purpose of the ordinance is to protect the integrity and character of the
residential areas. The Gainesville Code of Ordinances restricts the number of unrelated people living in a
residence to no more than three. When you plan to share housing with roommates you are required to
either restrict the number of occupants to three or seek appropriate housing in a multi-family district.

HOUSeHOLW 6ARBAe ANO TPASH
Gainesville has a curbside pick up of household garbage as well as curbside pick up of recyclable materials.
- The containers for these services tend to clutter the right of way and are not aesthetically pleasing.
Therefore, the times that containers can be left out are regulated. Containers may be placed in front of
your residence or at the curb no earlier than the evening before your scheduled trash collection.
Following the trash service, containers must remain behind the building, screened from view or placed in
an enclosed structure. For information on pick-up of garbage, recycling or yard trash contact the
Gainesville Solid Waste Division at 334-5040.

IDISOPEPLY CONOUCT:
Your actions and behavior that is viewed by the public is subject to the Gainesville Code of Ordinances.
Public conduct that creates a disturbance or is disorderly is prohibited. Behavior prohibited by the
Disorderly Conduct Ordinance includes promoting or provoking a disturbance, brawl, assault, or nuisance.
Included under disorderly conduct are fighting words, unlawful congregation that hinders pedestrian or
vehicular traffic, resisting or hindering the performance of duties by a police officer or city official, or
damaging or destroying personal or private property.

PAIkINO:
In Gainesville residential areas, passenger vehicles are permitted to be parked on approved driveways only.
Parking in the front yard of a residence, other than on an approved surface, is prohibited by the Gainesville
Code of Ordinances. If you have any questions about the parking regulations you can contact the City of
Gainesville Code Enforcement Division at 334-5030. Apartment complexes may have regulations
regarding parking and may require you to place a decal in your vehicle identifying you as a resident.
Contact the office of your apartment complex to inquire about parking regulations for your complex.

Getting Evicted continued


the failure to keep the apartment
clean and sanitary.
If you repeat the violation with
12 months, you will not be given
another chance.
You will be given 7 days to
correct a curable violation.


NONCURABLE VIOLATIONS
include deliberate destruction or
misuse of the landlord's property
or a continued, unreasonable
disturbance.
The landlord may terminate your
lease with a 7-day notice without
giving you a chance to correct a
noncurable violation.


Can I Be Evicted If I
Pay "My" Rent And My
Roommates Don't?
Usually. Most leases provide
that the tenants are jointly and
severally liable for the entire rent.
This means the landlord can


evict you unless the full rent is
paid.
It is possible for you to sue your
roommates in small claims court to
collect their share of the rent and
utilities.
A written roommate agreement
will be helpful in proving your case
in court.
Given the difficulty of collecting
money on a judgment quickly, the
best thing you can do is obtain new
roommates.


So What If I Get Sued, I
Have No Money!
Any judgment for money
damages is enforceable for at least
20 years and earns interest.
A judgment may be enforced
by seizing your wages, bank
accounts, or your personal
property.
A judgment will also adversely
affect your credit rating.

UF FOOTBALL

Antwine hospitalized, Wright, Cooper OK after surgeries


By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
jmarina@alligator.org

UF defensive tackle Brandon
Antwine was hospitalized for sev-
eral days with a lower back injury,
Gators coach Urban Meyer said.
Meyer, who has kept in constant
contact with Antwine during his
hospitalization, said he thought the
sophomore was released from the
hospital Tuesday.
"It's been a painful week for
him," Meyer said. "I saw him. It's
just a muscular issue, it's real pain-
ful but it's not a structural issue."
Meanwhile, true freshman free
safety Major Wright and sophomore
wide receiver Riley Cooper under-
went surgeries Monday, and both
were successful.
Wright had a small plate placed
in his right thumb and will wear a
cast for at least this week. Cooper
had two screws inserted into a finger
he broke but will not need a cast.
Meyer said the duo attended
Tuesday's team meetings, but he let
them miss practice and hopes they
might be game ready for Georgia.
"I guess I'm an optimist, and
maybe we'll see them later this


week," Meyer said.

DOGS TURNED GATORS: For fresh-
man punter Chas Henry, the UF-
Georgia game this Saturday will be
particularly sweet.
"It's one of those games
where if you grow up in the
South and you know SEC
football, this is the game to
watch."
Chas Henry
UF punter

The Dallas, Ga., native said many
of his friends grew up Bulldogs fans,
but now that he dons an orange and
blue uniform, they have jumped on
the Gators bandwagon.
"You turn die-hard Georgia fans
into Florida fans now," Henry said.
"It's real exciting to see."
Henry said he followed the rival-
ry growing up and is excited about
actually being a part of the game
Saturday.
"It's one of those games where if
you grow up in the South and you
know SEC football, this is the game
to watch," Henry said.

Alligator Staff Writer

The title of UF's fastest player
has been hotly debated among
the Gators' wide receivers, but if
the race were reduced to a yard
or two, a surprise winner might
emerge.
According to some, defensive
tackle Torrey Davis could claim
the quickest burst on the football
team.
"He's seriously one of the
most freak athletes I have ever
seen with how big and fast he
is," defensive lineman Duke
Lemmens said. "When he gets

going, I've never seen anything
like him. When he's motivated
and wants to go and gets off that
ball, he's as fast as anybody."
His quickness
and work ethic
have earned the
6-foot-4, 285-
pounder the
right to show-
case his talents
on the field.
Davis "He has got a
great first step," UF coach Urban
Meyer said. "He's giving us a
little penetration that we haven't
had, and he just continues to im-

UF men's basketball team to finish
third in the SEC East in a preseason
poll released Tuesday. Tennessee is
expected to win the SEC title.


Two-loss team a possibility for title game


Maybe you don't want to say it because of
the looks and scoffs you'll receive.
Or you don't want to jinx it.
Or you don't want to get caught up in what
Urban Meyer calls "the Florida nonsense."
But I'll say it.
Better yet, senior wide receiver Andre Caldwell
will say it.
"A two-loss team can actually get in the big
championship game," said Caldwell, following
his six-catch, 73-yard comeback performance
against Kentucky. -
Deep breath, Gators fans.
If you haven't uttered words similar to
Caldwell's already, you've probably had it run-
ning through your mind at some point.
In my opinion, you can'pretty much throw the
records out the window this year when ranking
the top teams.
But the BCS computers will go haywire with-
out them, so you can't look at UF as one of the five
most talented squads in the country.
You have to look at UF as a two-loss team.
As has been the case recently in college sports,
the Gators are sitting pretty.
They are the highest-ranked two-loss team by

championship or how hard
Nick Zaccardi the schedule is, but for
Nick-el Coverage some reason, the comput-
nzaccardi@alligator.org ers and so-called experts
ranked UF ahead of one-
loss Southern Cal and only
two spots behind Kansas, an undefeated team
from a BCS conference.
By now you know UF controls its own des-
tiny on its quest to the Southeastern Conference
Championship.
But at No. 11 in the BCS, the national hope is
still there.
And who's to say the Gators aren't a deserving
team?
Top-ranked Ohio State hasn't played anybody,
and neither has No. 2 Boston College.
No. 3 LSU needed a late comeback on its home
field to beat the Gators.

UF WOMEN'S BASKETBALL


Transfer Henry surprises Gators with dunking ability


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer

Coming soon to a UF women's
basketball game ... a slam dunk?
While quite prevalent in the
men's game, dunking remains a
rare feat in the women's world.
Junior transfer Aneika Henry
looks to change that for the
Gators.
The center from Seminole
Community College didn't wait
long, making her first public at-
tempt in a Gators uniform during
Sunday's scrimmage at the Alltel
Wireless Fan Appreciation Day in
the O'Connell Center.
While unsuccessful, UF coach
Amanda Butler said the try


proved Henry is capable.
"She was right up by the
rim, she just couldn't hold onto
the ball long enough to throw it
down," Butler said.
Butler remembers being skep-
tical when she first heard the
news about the 6-foot-3 Jamaican
being able to dunk.
"I doubted somewhat that she
could do it," Butler said. "A lot of
women claim they can do it, and
then it's actually a volleyball or a
smaller ball."
When Henry proved Butler
wrong, using just one dribble
from the elbow of the lane, there
was no containing the excite-
ment.
"Our gym exploded," Butler
said. "We lost all composure as


coaches."
Henry said she dunked for the
first time at age 19 during open
gym as her Seminole Community
College teammates watched.
A team-
mate captured
the dunk on a
cell phone, but
was unable to
upload it to
/ YouTube.
S/ A soft-spo-
ken Henry isn't
Butler big on being the
center of attention, but doesn't
mind the thrill of a dunk.
"You feel powerful because
not a lot of women can dunk,"
Henry said.
While Butler would love to see


Henry throw it through the rim,
she's just happy to have some
height, which was a key weak-
ness on last year's roster.
"Aneika has a chance to come
right tn and fix that right away,"
Butler said. "She certainly is de-
veloping very, very quickly and
learning our system and our ex-
pectations for her."
All this from a girl who didn't
play basketball until ninth grade,
since cricket was the preferred
sport during the 11 years she
spent growing up in Jamaica.
To Butler, it seems that fact
drives Henry even more.
She spends hours outside
of practice watching film and
working on her post moves one-
on-one with assistant coach Susie


Gardner.
"She certainly has the poten-
tial, there's no question," "Butler
said. "I've been very pleased
with what she's done to this
point, and I hope she continues
to stay that hungry and she'll be
a great player if she does."
Henry's ability to dunk poses
a new challenge to Butler as both
prepare for the opening of the
season.
"That's something that is new
for me to coach," Butler said.
"I'm going to have to go and sit
with Billy (Donovan) and his
staff and come up with some new
drills and some new plays. But
I'm going to tell you what if
we have the opportunity to do it,
we're going to do it."


Players' cheers motivate UF


By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Writer

From the very first time they take the
court in an organized fashion, volleyball
players are taught the importance of cel-
ebration.
"One, it's who can win the game," UF
middle blocker Kelsey Bowers said. "But it's
also who can have the best cheers."
After every point the Gators win, they
exchange high-fives, smiles and congratula-
tions.
Senior middle blocker Kisya
Killingsworth did not start playing volley-
ball until ninth grade, but learning the post-
point tradition was a quick process.
Now, she automatically moves to the cen-
ter of the court after a point.
"It's just second nature," Killingsworth
said. "You know, you get a block, you get to
crunk. In college, it's one of those things that
you're just like, 'I just blocked you.'"
The celebration tactics are so crucial that
the Gators have passed on these traditions to
Gainesville's up-and-coming athletes.
At UF volleyball camps, younger girls
would even compete to see who could cre-
ate the best service-ace celebration.
The youngest girls would always come
up with the most unique celebrations, pre-
tending to- shoot each other with guns or
spinning around and falling down, Bowers
said.
Bowers started playing volleyball in fifth
grade, and from that moment she was in-
structed to cheer wildly after each point.
"I think it's actually more important
when you're younger, just because at a
younger age you want to get really excited
about your sport," Bowers said. "So coaches
are really trying to get you to love your
sport. It's more about having fun."


Even when the players are not on the
court, they celebrate wildly from the bench,
chomping their hands while jumping up
and down.
Bowers and Killingsworth are slightly bi-
ased as middle blockers, but they agree the
team gets the most excited after a big block.
It's not just after winning a point, either,
that the players rally around each other.
When the Gators fail to win a point, they
organize to motivate themselves to do better
next time.
"Cheers are definitely important to kind
of keep your team together and also kind of
keep you motivated," Bowers said.
After the opposition scores a point, the
Gators "flush" that point out of their sys-
tems and focus on the next rally.
"Teams don't win because of emo-
tion, but it's very difficult to win
without it."
Mary Wise
UF volleyball coach

"We all come together, try to come into
a circle and we're like, 'Oh, we've got the
next one.'"
UJF coach Mary Wise has little to do with
the post-point cheering.
When she arrived in Gainesville in 1991,
the Gators' traditions had already been es-
tablished.
"At the end of every practice, the team
comes together and says, 'Ah, Gators,'"
Wise said. "They were doing that the first
practice I ever ran. ... That has been done at
the end of every practice."
Wise knows the celebrations are impor-
tant to the team's spirit, and a victory would
be hard to accomplish without them.
"Teams don't win because of emotion,

Tennis fails to meet expectations at ITA South Regionals


* THE WOMEN DID NOT
REACH THE FINAL ROUND.

By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Alligator Writer

On the final day of the ITA South
Regional Championships, the UF
women's tennis team did not live up
to its success in previous rounds.
The Gators' best result came on


the doubles court. Seniors Whitney
Benik and Diana Srebrovic ad-
vanced to the semifinals before fall-
ing Tuesday 8-2 to a Georgia Tech
pairing that was the top seed and
No. 3 team in the nation.
Three Gators made it to the
singles round of 16 before losing
prematurely.
"I think we probably under-
achieved a little bit," UF coach
Roland Thomqvist said. "We've


got a ways to go to play our best
tennis."
UF won this tournament in
doubles -last year
and boasted a player
in the singles final
each of the last two
Tennis years.
Thomqvist was
disappointed about not living up
to those expectations in a tourna-
ment in which the Gators usually


fare well.
"We're not exactly happy with
just getting to the semis," he said. "I
think the attitude of this program is
that we should win the tournament
in singles and doubles every year."
Sophomore Anastasia Revzina
was UF's one bright spot in the
singles tournament.
Revzina cruised through two
matchesbeforewithdrawingSunday
due to a calf injury. Thomqvist said


she was playing at the top of her
game prior to the injury. >
"She was hitting the ball about as
well as she has in her career here,"
he said.
After the Gators' mediocre
performance, the team will look to
improve in the coming weeks.
"I think we can be stronger,"
Thomqvist said. "We certainly can
be more consistent and overall just
play better."

Freshman tackle emerging as playmaker


FOOTBALL, from page 26

prove."
Davis turned in his best per-
formance of the season Saturday,
tallying three solo tackles one
for loss and an assist against
Kentucky.
His numbers weren't overly
impressive, but the freshman's
biggest contribution wasn't vis-
ible on the stat sheet.
Davis' play provided the Gators
with a spark on the defensive line,
and he was part of a rotation that
racked up six sacks UF's highest
output of the season.
"We did pressure the quarter-
back," Meyer said. "Really for the
first time this year, you felt like he
was under duress. We're starting
to get a little bit of a rotation in
there."
After starting tackle Clint
McMillan left the game with an
injured shoulder, Davis was one
of the players called on to fill the


void.
"He comes in and has a lot
of energy and gives other guys
a rest," McMillan said. "Anyone
that comes in and plays has got to
be able to play as well as the start-
ers do. When he's in the game, it's
just extra time and extra energy
for the other guys, too."
"They're trying to get me in
game shape, so I can stay
in the whole game without
getting subbed out."
Torrey Davis
UF defensive tackle


Davis was rated by Scout.comr
as the nation's No. 2 defensive
tackle coming out of Armwood
High, but struggled after arriving.
in Gainesville.
It took some time for Davis to
learn the finer .points of his posi-
tion, but he is already emerging as
a playmaker on the line.
"It was just learning the tech-


nique," he said. "In high school,
I just went off of talent. I got here
and got coached, and I've gotten a
whole lot better. But it took time
for me to adapt."
Davis has been putting in extra
time to ensure that he can stay
on the field longer. After each
practice, co-defensive coordinator
Greg Mattison supervises Davis
through running drills.
"They're trying to get me in
game shape, so I can stay in the
whole game without getting
subbed out," Davis said.
Each day seems to fuel Davis
even more, and his effort level has
increased dramatically.
"You just watch him during
practice, just how hard he's go-
ing," Lemmens said. "It's almost
like a fire lit up under him, and
he has this drive I haven't seen in
him yet. With his talent, the sky is
the limit.
"If he keeps working like he
has been working, nothing can
stop him."


NICK-EL, from page 26


(No. 4), Virginia Tech (No. 8) and even Kansas (No. 9) are in
the national discussion.
Voters need to forget about records and put the best
teams at the top.
The BCS is a season-long format created to find the two
best teams in college football to play and determine who is
No.1.
Does anybody really think a game between Ohio State
and Boston College could yield an undisputed champion?
Nobody in their right mind can make an argument
that those teams are better than LSU, UF, Oklahoma and
Southern Cal.
Only time will tell whether the BCS will shake out the
right way this time.
No two-loss team has ever played for a BCS title.
After the win at Kentucky, a reporter asked Meyer if a
two-loss team coming from the SEC had a chance to break
the mold.
"We play Georgia in Jacksonville," Meyer said sternly,
sticking to his cliched one-game-at-a-time philosophy.
Meyer may not want to say it, but his players can, and
so can his fans.
"If there is ever a chance for a two-loss team to get to a
national championship," quarterback Tim Tebow said, "it's
definitely this year."
