Feds confiscate paraphernalia
Jennifer Patton, an owner of Modern Age, fills in spaces left behind
after federal agents seized items from the store Thursday.

Five federal agents confiscated hundreds of items
considered to be drug paraphernalia from Modem
Age Tobacco & Gift Shop on Thursday afternoon, a
federal official said.
Barbara Gonzalez, spokeswoman for Immigration
and Customs Enforcement for the Southeast, said
the agents were investigating a warrant.
Still, she said, there were no charges or arrests

Co-owner of Modern Age
The investigation is ongoing, she said.
Officials were seen filling a U-Haul truck with
beige cardboard boxes Thursday.
D.W. Watkins, a retired shareholder of Modem
Age Tobacco, said if he were told the items he was
selling were illegal, he would have pulled them off
"I don't wanna do anything illegal," he said.
Patrick Patton, one of Modem Age's owners,
said about $300,000 worth of merchandise was
taken from the warehouse and both of the stores in
Patton said the agents were unaware of the
warehouse's items, so the owners willingly gave the
agents about $100,000 worth of merchandise.
Jennifer Patton, one of the owners of the store,
said the agents mostly took glass and water pipes.
"We'll be back, fully operational, on Monday,"

* AN OFFICIAL APOLOGIZED FOR

UF and Shands HealthCare officials
apologized Thursday to the family of a 3-
year-old patient who died at Shands at UF
from an overdose of an injected chemical
earlier this month.
Sebastian Ferrero was prescribed 5.75
grams of arginine an amino acid that de-
tects a growth-hormone deficiency but
a nurse gave him 60 grams, a news release
stated. Sebastian died Oct. 10.
"We take full responsibility for
Sebastian's death and are very, very sorry,"
said Dr. Donald Novak, director of the UF
Pediatric Clinics, standing beside blown-
up pictures of the two nearly empty argi-
The nurse and pharmacist directly re-
sponsible for Sebastian's death have been
placed on paid leave pending an investiga-
tion into their work, the release stated.
Sebastian's growth rate was below aver-

see whether his pituitary gland was func-
The pharmacist who filled the prescrip-
tion was not familiar with the drug and
was unsure how much was in a bottle, said
Alan Knudsen, director of pharmacy ser-
vices at Shands at UF. He wanted to make
sure there was enough medicine to trace
the hormone, so he used two bottles of the
chemical, Knudsen said.
Doctors use arginine to test a deficiency
of a growth hormone, which is secreted by
the pituitary gland.
The drug is injected into the patient over
30 minutes, and after that, blood samples
are taken at 30-minute intervals for three

Commemorative days cheap, fun for commission
By KATIE GALLAGHER
November is Friendship Month
in Alachua County, but that's not the
only thing to celebrate.
The County Commission also
proclaimed Oct. 23 as Employees
Supporting Operation Enduring
Freedom and Operation Iraqi
Freedom Day at its meeting
At the City Commission meet-
ing Monday, dates were issued for
White Cane Safety Month, Epilepsy
Awareness Month, Respiratory Care
Week, Norma Homan Appreciation
Day, Robert Garrigues Appreciation
Day and Veterans Day.
County Commission chairwom-
an Paula DeLaney said the county
gets anywhere from one to 11 proc-
lamations to issue at its biweekly
meetings, but she doesn't mind.
"It's something you can do for
people that doesn't really cost any-
thing," she said.
In fact, she sometimes enjoys
them, she said.
DeLaney, who was a former city
commissioner, said in 1994, she was
able to proclaim Rolling Stones Day
in Gainesville when the band came
for a concert.
But proclamations don't have to
be for celebrities. Once, she issued
one for her husband's grandmoth-
er's 100th birthday
"One of the times when
'Cats' came to the Center for the
Performing Arts, I declared it 'Cats'
Week in Gainesville because I like
musical theater," she said.
The proclamation declaring
Local said people in the
News county "are invited
to show their ap-
preciation for friends
by calling a friend, sending a card,
taking a friend to lunch or any act of
-random kindness during the month
The event was in honor of the
Gainesville chapter of the Links Inc.
to commemorate the friendship that
the group was founded on.
DeLaney said the only time she's
turned down proclamations is when
they've been about non-local issues
that she doesn't feel she fully under-
Others might turn down procla-
mations involving religion or con-
troversial issues, she said.
"I've been very lenient myself
signing proclamations," she said.
Debra Himeise, assistant to
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan, said
proclamations that go through the
mayor's office may be edited but
almost always go through.
"Under this mayor, I can't really
think of any proclamation that's not
been done," she said.
If she's available, Hanrahan will
sometimes go to events to issue the
proclamations instead of at the City
Commission meeting, Hirneise said.
Past proclamations for the city
include one regarding the separa-
tion between church and state in
January 2007 and another for school
The county also had proclama-
tions this year about raising aware-
ness for pain, "a major health issue,"
and building safety.
Rhonda Baxter, county commis-
sion services coordinator, said that
a request for a proclamation would
usually come from an organization,
individual or one of the commis-
"Generally, they're organiza-
tions that are part of the county and
want to draw attention to an event
they're having or a milestone year,"
A draft of the proclamation is put
together and signed by the commis-
sion chair, DeLaney.
She said that proclamations also
include a piece of paper that looks
"We're happy to accommodate,
and if people give us the informa-
tion they want to include, we can
format it," she said.
All proclamations become a part
of public record, she said. Overall,
she said, the county probably makes
two to four proclamations every two
"In the big scheme of things,
that's really not that many in a
county this big," she said.

Scott Hampton has seen UF students panic
before job interviews because they don't know
how to play golf.
Hampton, a professional from the Professional
Golfers' Association of America known as
PGA teaches a course to remedy such fear.
It's called "Golf: For Business and Life."
The two-credit course, offered through the de-
partment of applied physiology and kinesiology,
is part of a PGA initiative to teach golf to college
students around the United States.
The class has no prerequisites and is open for
beginning and advanced golfers.
Over the next couple years, Hampton plans
to invite speakers to his class to discuss the rela-
tionship between golf and business.
"A lot of business deals start and are made on
the golf course," Hampton said. "It's been like
Hampton said many of the students enrolled
in his class are studying law, business or medi-
However, the golf and business relationship
extends beyond Hampton's course.
Chappell Brown, a UF finance sophomore,
has been playing golf since he was in the eighth
Brown has been a member of the UF men's
golf team since his freshman year.
"I think it's just a huge advantage to me in the
business world to be able to play golf," Brown
"The golf course is a relaxed atmosphere, and
a lot of big business deals have been done on the
golf course," he added.
Brown's friends working at investment firms
often brought their clients to join them on the
golf course in West Palm Beach.
"With guys back at my home course, we made
so many great connections and met so many
great people through tournaments and golf,"
"And you know, the more connections you
have in business, the better," he said.
Brown, who has exchanged numbers or busi-
ness cards with people he's met playing golf,
said he thinks his connections made on the golf
course will lead to an internship or a job.
Playing golf has already helped Alex
Friedberg, a finance sophomore, with job recom-
Last summer, Friedberg played golf with his
branch manager while interning at a brokerage
firm who brought friends of the "same high busi-
ness positions," he said.
"After playing golf with him, the relationship
was better," Friedberg said.
"The golf course is a relaxed atmo-
sphere, ,and a lot of big business deals
have been done on the golf course."
UF finance sophomore
"He said if I ever needed a recommendation
letter I could write whatever I wanted, and he
would sign it," he added.
Friedberg has at least five business cards from
people he met playing golf.
Friedberg said people who manage golf
courses pair up single players with a random
"I've been paired up with some guys that are
entrepreneurs or pretty big financial advisers in
South Florida," Friedberg said.
"You kind of bond on the golf course. I mean,
it's three hours of bonding."

Blood donation center transforms into haunted house
* MORE PEOPLE DONATE BLOOD
THIS TIME OF YEAR.
By APRIL DUDASH
Blood donors aren't used to seeing blood
smeared on LifeSouth's windows and walls.
The LifeSouth Regional Headquarters &
Donor Center on Northwest 13th Street kicks
off its Halloween haunted blood drive today.
Rats hug the counter of the receptionist's
desk, bats hover silently by the ceiling, and
ghoulish graves are propped up in the eerily
lit sitting room.
Christine Evans, LifeSouth's donor col-
elections manager, said the staff has been
working on the haunted house for about two
"We kind of let them have free reign, and
we get really excited about it," Evans said.
J.D. Pettyjohn, the North Florida district
director, said anybody can walk through and
not have to donate blood.
However, officials hope visitors who visit
the center will decide to donate, Pettyjohn
"You're going to feel like you're in a to-
tally different world," he said.
The haunted house is almost pitch-black
when donors enter.
"We've outlined a little zig-zag pattern
for you to walk through and be scared,"
Flickering strobe lights disorient visitors
as they feel their way around corners.
A zombie woman with glowing green
eyes lurks in the pathway, and a purple
spider's web marks the end of the maze.
Wendy Hill, the LifeSouth branch man-
ager, said she finds the haunted
LOCal house too scary.

it, especially if I'm here early
in the morning by myself," Hill
Evans said people who don't cel-
ebrate Halloween and might be offended
by the decorations can donate blood at the
Newberry location. The decorations will be
up until after Halloween, she said.
"I've gotten a lot of feedback that people
really like it," she said.
The LifeSouth center gets two to three
times as many donors during this time of
year as it would during non-promotion
times, Evans said.
The staff has been buying Halloween
props since August, Evans said.
"They can constantly add to it," she said.
People who donate blood will receive a

Donors also are registered from now until
Dec. 31 to win a red Chevrolet Cobalt.
Pettyjohn said it's important to make the

hearts," he said.

- don't be surprised if your hairiest friends go missing. Yes,
it's that time of year again: Halloween.
Oh, who are we kidding? This holiday isn't scary. It's the
one night when girls can wear nothing but bras and call them
"costumes." Hell, it's the one night guys can wear bras and
call them "costumes." Of course, it isn't Halloween yet, but
there's no doubt in our minds that it will be observed this
weekend. So grab a sheet for a makeshift costume a toga

Tricks & Treats
First up, it's a that-wasn't-very-honorable TRICK to the
Faculty Senate, which wants to strip the Student Honor Court
of its ability to hear academic-dishonesty cases. The honor
court gives students a chance to have their cases heard by
law students, who present the prosecution and defense. The
Faculty Senate says it wants more involvement which we
suspect is code for: "We don't like that the Student Honor
Court doesn't have any faculty input."
The answer is not to dismantle the honor court, which is
essentially what the Senate wants to do. Sure, it may have a
few other purposes, but the heart and soul of the honor court
lies in its ability to hear students' cases. Providing proctors for
professors is its second-most important task.
We were going to give a wow-look-what-a-bunch-of-soror-
ity-women-can-do TREAT to Zeta Tau Alpha Sorority and its
philanthropy for raising thousands of dollars for breast cancer
research, but we're gonna have to turn that into a wow-look-
The sisters and their dates allegedly wreaked havoc on an
iconic Ybor City restaurant earlier this month. News got out,
and now the women are scrambling to defend themselves. But
the damage has been done literally.
Greeks always complain that they receive so much nega-
tive attention from the editorial board, but it's not because we
hate you. It's not because we're jealous.
It's because you make it so easy.
Up next, we have a lean-mean-and-totally-green TREAT for
UF and SFCC's celebration of National Campus Sustainability
Day. On the UF front, Gators for a Sustainable Campus, the
Student Government Environmental Affairs Cabinet and the
Office of Sustainability were out in full force. A panel was held
regarding a renewable energy fee that 78 percent of students
voted in favor of in the spring. UF President Bernie Machen
also presented UF's sustainability report card.
SFCC President Jackson Sasser met with Gainesville Mayor
Pegeen Hanrahan to discuss the possibility of a mass-transit
system to benefit SFCC students. They also discussed how to
make SFCC more environmentally friendly.
We think it's great our colleges care so much about mak-
ing Gainesville a great place to live. This is also a good time
in our lives to learn to care about this issue. The rest of the
world may be up to its ankles in sea water in 30 years, but
we're pretty sure Gainesville will still be sitting pretty, thanks
to all its efforts.
Finally, we give a now-that-fits-like-a-glove TREAT to
TheyFit condoms, which allows us to buy condoms in a
different range of sizes than the standard 6.3 inches, includ-
ing ones smaller (sorry, guys), even though UF has no plans
to hand out the brand's products. But with all the bells and
whistles er, colors and flavors and now sizes of condoms,
there's no excuse not to use one.
Who knows? Maybe that skimpy costume will work to
your favor and you can try one out this weekend.

FDLE report's findings not surprising
No one should be surprised at the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement's report on
the recent Tasering of Andrew Meyer at UF.
Law enforcement agencies always circle
the wagons and protect their own when
questions about their actions are raised.
More troubling is UF President Bernie
Machen's response. He has failed to see that
what happened here is much larger than the
ranting of an out-of-control student.
In fact, in excusing even condoning
- what the police did, he sends a deeply
chilling message to the entire university
community: Get out of line, and we will
Taser you. We only want quiescent, pliant,
conforming students. Get uppity, and we will
turn you into a criminal.
Is this the kind of university we want?

Alcohol not just a problem for Greeks
I am not affiliated with any Greek organi-
zation; I am, however, an alcohol awareness

The UF Greek houses were the first people
to contact me for my presentations. In fact,
they were so popular one night I had to run
from one house to another. As a student, I feel
as though most of your stories on the topic of
partying, alcohol and drugs feature a sorority
or fraternity in the headline.
As someone who has been in contact with
all the Greek houses here at the university,
I feel as though this community is unjustly
characterized because of the Alligator's focus
Why don't the parties among students
who are not Greek make the Alligator? There
is no question that each Greek house is rep-
resentative of the university, but isn't each
student and faculty member responsible for
their actions as UF representatives, as well?
Maybe we shouldn't be so quick to jump
on the Greek-bashing wagon until we prop-
erly focus on the entire drug and alcohol
problem for the entire campus.
Negative coverage of Greeks inevitable
In a shocking development, one of UF's
Greek chapters has done it again. As Ben
Franklin once put it, "In this world nothing
is certain but death, taxes and UF Greeks get-
ting into trouble."
And like every time it happens, the let-
ters poured in defending the fraternities
and sororities. Patrick Duffey's and fon-Erik
Escribano's letters Thursday pointed out that
Zeta Tau Alpha Sorority is raising money for
breast cancer, so they should be immune to
While frats and sororities often do good
things for society, it does not give members
a right to do whatever they wish. Every in-
cident that occurs is another black mark for
the Greek community, which overshadows
the positive contributions Greek organiza-
While the Alligator could certainly do a
better job of highlighting some of the positive
things Greeks do, the Greeks haven't helped
their cause by making news for the wrong
reasons. But to blame the Alligator for the
negative coverage, as Thursday's letters
seemed to do, completely misses the point.
If you're not happy about coverage of neg-
ative happenings in the Greek community,
work to make sure they don't happen. Don't
blame a newspaper for reporting them.

Raising funds not a get-out-free card
While I can understand why Mr. Duffey -
acting president of disgraced Pi Kappa Alpha
Fraternity, which is suspended through 2011
- does not understand the embarrassment
Zeta's function brought to our university, I
don't see how anyone else can miss it.
His letter overlooked major differences
between the Zeta function and the Andrew
The Meyer incident occurred at a political
forum where he was loud, disruptive and
obnoxious. The Zeta incident occurred at a
top Florida restaurant where the group was
destructive. Heckling is common in politics;
destruction of property and theft by patrons
at restaurants is rare.
While Zeta may have raised $20,000 for
breast cancer, that doesn't free the soror-
ity from its inexcusable breach in decorum.
Giving to noble causes does not excuse ig-
Sorority should apologize for damage
The fact that Zeta's national office has
offered to pay for the damage caused at the
Columbia Restaurant does not reflect a "com-

mon ideal of responsibility," as stated in Mr.
If the sorority truly valued responsibility,
it would issue an apology to the employees
who had to clean up the disgusting messes
and mandate that those who caused the dam-
age return to the establishment to personally
right their wrongs.
The national chapter has instead chosen
the easy way out by offering to cut a check,
hoping it will make the problem disappear.
I also feel obliged to remind Mr. Duffey
that the Columbia Restaurant is not a bar in
Gainesville, and it is not an appropriate place
for "drunken antics."
The actions of the sorority at the restaurant
have, unfortunately, overshadowed its efforts
to raise money for breast cancer research.
However, the member can blame only them-
selves for that, not the student newspaper.
Upscale restaurant not place for kegger
While I understand that it is a great ac-
complishment for a sorority to donate thou-
sands of dollars to breast cancer awareness,
this does not cancel out the fact that the Zeta
women (or their dates) caused damage to a
cultural icon in Tampa.
It wasn't just the Alligator that took note
of this event an article about the incident
was featured in Tampa newspapers, as well.
If the women of Zeta or their dates wanted
to have a keg party, they should have been
smart enough to figure out that a historic,
upscale restaurant was not the place.

Students wear holsters to protest
By AMANDA McKENZIE
Alligator Contributing Writer
Some students wore empty
holsters on campus this week to
support carrying concealed hand-
guns on campus.
The demonstration was a
national event organized by the
Students for Concealed Carry on
Campus from Monday to Friday.
While the holsters did not
violate any state laws, the hol-
sters could send mixed messages
to other students and faculty,
said Capt. Jeff Holcomb, spokes-
man for the University Police
Deans were notified of the
demonstration by e-mail, and
then it was up to them to forward
the message on to the faculty, said
Steve Orlando, UF spokesman.
"We wanted the faculty to
know in case it was in the class-
room," he said. "There have been

Some students, however, were
not aware of the protest, and they
stared questioningly at other stu-
dents with empty holsters.
But some students reported
seeing demonstrators with hol-
sters who were wearing T-shirts
that explained what they were
doing, Orlando said
Patricia Telles-Irvin, UF's vice
president for student affairs, said
the Virginia Tech shootings are

Holcomb said if anyone had
dressed inappropriately or worn
a trench coat for the weeklong
protest, they would have been ap-

"However, an empty holster
is no different than an extra piece
of clothing or accessory," he said.
"It's like adding a purse. It's not
against the law."
The protest's news release
referred to the Virginia Tech
shootings, when a student with
two handguns had "one distinct
advantage over his victims."

Cauldrons will bubble and pumpkins will fog the air to pro-
mote the appreciation of chemistry and its role in Halloween
To spark children's interest in science and to celebrate
National Chemistry Week, the UF Chemistry Club will hold
the Chemistry Club Halloween Fundraiser and participate in
Halloween Molecular Mania.
Children of all ages are invited to participate in Halloween
Molecular Mania, hosted by UF's Center for
Catalysis at The Oaks Mall on Saturday from
10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The event will be held
in the courtyard near Dillard's.
Michael Scott, a UF associate professor in
the department of chemistry and adviser to
the chemistry club, said many children do
not realize the importance of science, some-
Scott thing the event hopes to address.
"It's an outreach program geared toward
grade- and junior-high-school students who don't fully under-
stand what science is all about."
There will be chemistry experiments in which children can
help implode soda cans and create crystal gardens.

A condom revolution might
be on the horizon if an entrepre-
neur's plan doesn't go limp.
During a five-day meeting
earlier this month in Seogwipo,
South Korea, the world's top
condom experts met to discuss
international condom standards.
Frank Sadlo, founder of TheyFit
- which claims to make the
world's first custom-fit condoms,
pushed for updated standards to
allow greater variation in con-
dom size, stated an article by The
"This isn't just a new condom,
it's a new concept," said Samantha
Evans, sexual health educator at
UF's Student Health Care Center.
"Anatomy-wise, we are all differ-
ent shapes and sizes."
The condoms, which would
offer men a choice in what is
usually a standard length, would
range from smaller-than-average
sizes to larger sizes.
Although brands such as
Trojan and LifeStyles offer large
and extra-large options, TheyFit
would offer more precise sizes,
including a variety
Public smaller thaa the stan-
Health dard 6.3 inches.
Evans said it's a
great idea, but a major concern for
new options will be the need for
new product-testing procedures.
International testing standards
for the strength of an average-size
condom is to fill it with 4.76 gal-
lons of air, making sure it doesn't
burst, the article stated.
If size variations in length are
introduced, new testing standards
ensuring the safety and effective-
ness of each variation would have
to be conducted, Evans said.

Ghosts come to life Saturday
By BRITTANY NICHOL
Alligator Contributing Writer
By the light of the moon, ghosts
from the 1870s will walk the earth
again, telling stories about 19th-cen-
tury life at the fourth annual Ghost
The Ghost Walk, held at the
Momingside Living History Farm
at the Momingside Nature Center
on Saturday, aims to provide a fun,
educational activity for Halloween.
The event is free and open to the
public from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
The event will feature three to
five staff members who will be act-
ing like ghosts while costumed in
nothing typical of the 1870s, said
Sally Wazny, the event's program
Wazny said she likes the Ghost
Walk because it gets people to come
to the center after dusk, when the
park is not usually open.
The event allows the park to
"peak their interest in learning more
about what the park has to offer at a
time when it's not necessarily acces-
sible," she said.
Participants will start their hike
at the education building at the
nature center, where staff members
will talk about nocturnal animals
and nighttime occurrences in nature,
"We certainly wanted to
add to and continue with
our tradition of educa-
tion for families, families
that come in all shapes

From there, the "ghosts" will lead
guests to the 10-acre, single-family
Living History Farm, reminiscing of
life in the mid- to late 1800s.
The stories they tell will be gener-
al interpretations of day-to-day life,
with reference to critical events like
the Civil War and the assassination
of President Lincoln, Wazny said.
Some activities that are dem-
onstrated at the Living History
Farm include the use of the sugar
cane press, the syrup kettle, and
the smokehouse, as stated in
The farm features original histor-
ic buildings moved to Momingside

The buildings will set the scene
for the stories of the ghosts.

to hear historical accounts of that
period, but they will also be able
to observe historic items within the
buildings as well.

* A WIN FOR THE VOLLEYBALL TEAM
WOULD CUSHION ITS LEAD.
By EVAN DREXLER
On paper, it's the biggest home match of
the regular season.
A win puts the UF volleyball team com-
fortably in the lead in the Southeastern
A loss, and the other teams are right back
in the mix.
LSU, the only other SEC team receiving
votes in the American Volleyball Coaches
Association Poll, comes to Gainesville for a
match at 7 tonight that could either cloud or
cement the SEC standings.
No. 10 UF (18-1, 11-1 SEC) has a two-
match lead on LSU (18-4,9-3 SEC) and is two
matches up on Alabama in the loss column
for the conference lead.
If the Gators can handle the Tigers to-
night, they could switch on cruise control
for the rest of the season.
But junior middle blocker Kelsey Bowers
knows it's not going to be a free ride.
"We're very excited to play them,"
Bowers said. "They're a really competitive
team. ... LSU definitely has some factors.
I know they have some great middles and
some great outside (hitters) too."
LSU hosted UF on Sept. 23, and it was
clearly UF's toughest match of the season up
to that point.
The match lasted four games, and the
Tigers scored at least 24 points in each of
them. LSU led 24-21 in game four and could
have sent the match to a decisive fifth game,
but UF rallied and scored nine straight
points to close it out.
LSU will certainly aim for revenge when
the team enters the O'Connell Center to-
night. The Tigers were the No. 22 team in
the country back when it lost to UF and only
dropped out of the top 25 this week.
"I think they're more looking towards
coming back and playing hard against us
and beating us," senior
middle blocker Kisya
Volleyball Bowers the reigning
SEC Offensive Player of
the Week will certainly have their work
cut out for them blocking in the middle of
LSU is third in the conference in kills per
game with 15.56. Junior Kyna Washington,
who is third in the SEC with 4.15 kills per
game, anchors the Tigers' hitting. She had 14
against the Gators in September.
UF coach Mary Wise thinks LSU's offense
is going to threaten UF's defense.
"They give everyone matchup problems
because of their talent and their ability to kill
balls," Wise said. "They're willing to take
chances. They're always swinging. You have
to be on your toes defensively to play LSU."
The opposition is also formidable in
blocking. Middle blockers Brittnee Cooper
and Lauren DeGirolamo are second and fifth
in the SEC, respectively, in blocks per game.
Their contributions have helped make the
Tigers the conference's second-best block-

So now that we have established the dos and
don't, what's so bad about jorts?
'What's good about them?" Davis said. "I'm not
a fashion guru, but I don't think they've ever been in
style. They're ugly."
Maybe Davis should tell that to some of his fellow
If the rest of the SEC assumed UF was the only
school to have fans show up in jorts, search no fur-
they than the ironclad proof available on Facebook.
The group "Georgia fans wear jean shorts" clearly
depicts Bulldogs fans wearing the incriminating
evidence, but Davis was quick to defend the Bulldog
"I think the true fans won't wear jean shorts,"
Davis said. "I will admit there are some rednecks in
the state of Georgia. I mean, Jeff Foxworthy is from
there. I doubt the Georgia fans that wear jean shorts
actually attended the university."
With UF so heavily favored to win the game
Saturday, one has to wonder: If Tim Tebow and Co.
showed up in jean shorts sans pads, could they still
best the Bulldogs?
"They'd probably get strawberries," Davis said.
"It'd probably be pretty uncomfortable. I don't think
regulation will allow them to wear jean shorts."
One could dare to dream.

Caldwell, who had been nursing a knee injury.
Caldwell led the team in catches and added a touch-
down against the Wildcats, and he expects more of the
same against Georgia.
"I feel that I bring a lot more completeness with my
speed and playmaking ability," Caldwell said. "I don't
think any DB, with me and all my receivers healthy, can
match up cornerback for receiver with our team."
Caldwell has played well against the Bulldogs in the

How I wish I cared about the supposed
rivalry between UF and Georgia.
Don't get me wrong the
whole concept is very cool. I witnessed the
game last year in the stands, and I strongly
encourage any college football aficionado
to attend the matchup at least once.
A neutral stadium split evenly is an in-
credibly unique experience, and the World's
Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party makes for
hysterical drunk-people watching.
But the Gators have been dominating the
Bulldogs in Jacksonville since before I even
knew what a football looked like.
Since I'm banking on UF notching an-
other victory this week, I decided it would
be a lot more fun to examine other possible
rivalries between the two states that are
bound to be more intense than the game.

S- UF RUN vs. GEORGIA RUN DEFENSE -
UF rushes for 198.3 yards per game; GEORGIA allows 137.7 yards per game.
'KEY PLAYERS: UF: So. QB Tim Tebow (125 attempts, 578 yards, 4.6 avg, 10 TDs), Jr. TB Kestahn Moore (74 att 381 yards, 5.1 avg, 4 TDs); UGA: Jr. LB Dannell Ellerbe (53 tackles, 8 TFL),|
SSr. LB Brandon Miller (24 tackles, 2 TFL).
ANALYSIS: It's painfully clear that defenses cannot stop Tebow, which gives the Gators one of the best two-way offenses in the country. Moore has fallen off the map in the SEC season,
but he is still getting the job done, especially in blocking on the outside on runs by Percy Harvin and Andre Caldwell. Georgia gets a big boost in the expected return of two starting
