'I AM TRULY SORRY'


SBy KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org


Charles Roop / Alligator Staff
Andrew Meyer sits near his attorney, Robert Griscti, at his office in Gainesville
on Monday night.


Andrew Meyer has ad-
dressed an apology letter to
UF students, UF President
Bernie Machen and Student
Government for his "failure to
act calmly" during a Sept. 17
forum with Sen. John Kerry.
In a letter released to the
Alligator on Monday after-
noon, Meyer wrote that he
"stepped out of line" and felt
he had tarnished UF's image.
"For that again, I am truly
sorry," Meyer wrote.
Meyer, a UF telecommu-
nication senior, was tackled,
Tasered and arrested by
University Police Department
officers during a question-
and-answer session follow-
ing the speech from Kerry,
a Democrat who represents
Massachusetts.
Meyer was charged with a
third-degree felony for resist-
ing arrest with violence and a
second-degree misdemeanor
for disturbing the peace.
Meyer has since withdrawn


from classes, said Robert
Griscti, Meyer's attorney. He
plans to return in January.
Meyer has accepted pun-
ishment from UF for violating
the Student Code of Conduct,
stated a news release from
Patricia Telles-Irvin, UF's vice
president of stu-
Local dent affairs.
News The details of
Meyer's penalty
could not be disclosed, Telles-
Irvin wrote.
"Students make mistakes,"
she wrote. "What's most im-
portant are the lessons learned
by all of us and making things
right."
A decision from the State


Attorney's Office about
Meyer's criminal charges is
due to become available to-
day.
Spencer Mann, spokesman
for the office, could not be
reached for comment by press
time.
Griscti said Monday he
couldn't comment on the deci-
sion. Although Meyer allowed
himself to be photographed
in Griscti's office, he declined
comment as well.
"This is beyond anybody's
expectations in terms of media
interest," Griscti said. "I've yet
to find anybody who doesn't
know about this in Gainesville,
Europe or elsewhere."
The aggressive attention
from other students and
the media has been hard on
Meyer, Griscti said, but he's

In a time of budget cuts, tuition increases
and financial uncertainty, a new UF adminis-
trator will be charged with managing univer-
sity funds.
Matthew Fajack, executive director of
financial affairs at Kent State University, was
named vice president and chief financial of-
ficer in a news release Monday.
As CFO, his responsibilities will include

Bernie Machen said in a memo.
Fajack will begin working Jan. 1 and will
earn an annual salary of $200,000.
Machen said Fajack would work with the
entire UF administration as well as the Board
of Trustees. He will also work with UF-affili-
ated organizations such as the UF Foundation,
University Athletic Association and Shands
at UF.
He will report directly to Kyle Cavanaugh,
senior vice president for administration.
Cavanaugh said a search committee

UF followed other universities, such as the
University of Michigan, in creating a position
to handle increasingly complex finances.
Cavanaugh also announced that Susan
Blair would assume the role of chief privacy
officer Nov. 1.
Blair will oversee privacy policies and pro-
tections for student records and health infor-
mation. She will also manage safeguards for
other confidential information, such as Social

Complex offers 'green' living for $1,200 a month


By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer
The Bartram, an environmentally
friendly apartment complex expected to
open next year, will be one of the first of
its kind in the United States. *
Located on Old Archer Road, it will
be one of the first rental properties in
the U.S. to receive certification from
Leadership in Energy and Environmental
Design, or LEED.
The U.S. Green Building Council
program stresses environmental sustain-
ability in buildings by awarding credits
to the development.
Credits are based on areas such as
site location, water efficiency, energy and
atmosphere, materials and resources, and
indoor environmental quality.
Earned points add up to a LEED
qualification level, which can be Certifed,
Silver, Gold or Platinum. Keith Colgan,
president of Foram Development, said
the developers are aiming at Certified.
Foram Development is part of Foram
Group, the owner of the property and
lead developer of The Bartram.
It's the group's policy to have every
one of its projects either LEED certified or


considered a sustainable development,
Colgan said.
Pam Brown, the manager of
Contemporary Management Concepts,
said she publicized The Bartram at UF's
Fall Housing Fair last week.
Construction for The Bartram started
in the spring, and is expected to open
around May or June 2008.
The units will feature granite coun-
tertops, energy-efficient appliances and
walk-in closets, he said.
Local The complex itself will
NeWS have concierge service, a
fitness center, cyber caf6
with a coffee bar, pool with fountains,
six-story parking garage and a poolside,
gourmet outdoor kitchen.
A one-bedroom apartment will cost
about $1,200 per month. A three-bed-
room apartment will cost about $2,500,
he said.
Brown said she receives about five to
six calls a day from potential renters.
Colgan said he is excited to break new
ground in Gainesville with this apart-
ment project.
"We own our properties and we keep
them," Colgan said. "We're very proud
of them."

Business executive highlights value of networking


By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Contributing Writer

A JPMorgan Chase executive said his 20
years of business success are highly related to
the values of a student organization Monday
night.
Speaking to a standing-room-only crowd
of more than 100 people, Louis Schioppo,
chief financial officer for JPMorgan Chase,
said he is interested in hiring members of the
Association of Latino Professionals in Finance
and Accounting.
Schioppo said the association's members
are highly talented students who differentiate
themselves.
"If you want to be in that pool, (it's) a good
place to start," he said.


The association's UF chapter was estab-
lished this year, said Yadira Sanchez, co-presi-
dent and a UF accounting senior.
Schioppo spoke at the group's second
meeting.
Although he is not Latin and was not a
member of the association in college, Schioppo
said the group's values would lead students
to success.
He advised students not to be afraid of tak-
ing risks, especially early in their careers, and
to develop their skills at every opportunity.
"Your skill set, your toolbox, you have to
keep it fresh," he said.
Schioppo also emphasized the value of
networking.
As an example, he used the story of his re-
lationship with Carlos Barriga, a UF alumnus,


and Alina Garcia, a Marriott employee and
graduate of Florida International University.
Barriga and Garcia also spoke at the meet-
ing.
"As you think about your student
life and who you want to be, if you
want to be a leader, start now."
Louis Schioppo
chief financial officer for JPMorgan Chase

Schioppo met Barriga and Garcia at the
association's national convention in Orlando
in August.
After meeting Barriga, Schioppo hired
Barriga on the spot.
Since she met him, Garcia said Schioppo


has become her mentor.
Garcia also offered four tips to make the
transition from college to the professional
world easier.
"Never look at your job as that money-
maker," she said. "Look at it as an extension of
your education."
Valentina Gonzalez, a fourth-year UF fi-
nance major, said hearing from recent college
graduates was helpful because they're the
same age and have common interests.
During a question-and-answer session,
Schioppo said students should concentrate
on the opportunities in front of them at the
moment.
"As you think about your student life and
who you want to be, if you want to be a leader,
start now," he said.


'The Interns' move to third task in SFCC competition


Casey Brooke Lawson / Alligator
Lillian Guevara-Castro, features editor at The Gainesville Sun, discusses the results of the second elimi-
nation for SFCC's "The Interns" contest Monday at The Gainesville Sun.


By CASEY BROOKE LAWSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

Morgan Miller, Big Red team
member, walked into a conference
room expecting to be disappointed.
"The Big Red team had a lot of
problems -when it came down to
it," said Lillian Guevara-Castro,
features editor at The Gainesville
Sun. "Their work reflected the dif-
ficulties they faced with technology,
which is ultimately why they were
eliminated."
Guevara-Castro made the sec-
ond elimination Monday for the
SFCC contest "The Interns," which
incorporates teamwork with weekly
tasks. SFCC's Student Government
and the Student Advocacy Network
joined together three years ago to
create the contest.
Each team consists of four
SFCC students, and each member
of the winning team will receive a
scholarship for 12 credits at SFCC,
as well as an internship that corre-
sponds with their discipline.
Guevara-Castro said the Bomb
Squad team articulated its concept
clearly and effectively.
"We were honored to hear such
praise about our work because we


put our hearts and souls into this
task," said Bomb Squad member
Gustavo Moran, 19.
Guevara-Castro said her deci-
sion was based on the design,
construction and reporting of a
newspaper page, which was filled
with articles and images about local
workforce issues.
The third task of the contest,
hosted by North Florida Regional
Medical Center, was announced
at the end of the
Santa Fe elimination cer-
Community emony.
College The teams will
propose a curric-
ulum for Gainesville High School's
Academy of Health Professionals,
which educates and certifies stu-
dents in different health-related
fields, said Laurie Welch, directorof
human resources at North Florida
Regional Medical Center.
A local business hosts each task,
which will relate to one of the ma-
jor disciplines, said Ben Anderson,
SFCC Student -Government presi-
dent. -
Following a fourth elimination,
the winning team will be decided
at the dosing ceremony, Anderson
said.

Ghost Walk brings visitors back to Civil War era


By CLAIBOURNE SMITH
Alligator Contributing Writer

Cars crowded the entranceway of the
Morningside Nature Center on Saturday eve-
ning, forcing some to wait in the turning lane
on State Road 26.
They were all waiting for the same reason
- to catch a glimpse of a ghost.
The park gates opened at 7 p.m., and the
line of cars crept along the wooded road to
the visitor parking lot like a funeral proces-
sion.
As the passengers unloaded underneath a
full moon, the people costumed children,
teenagers with flashlights and parents push-
ing strollers set out with good spirits for
the fourth-annual Ghost Walk.
The Ghost Walk is a night hike on the
Living History Farm at Morningside Nature
Center put on by the city of Gainesville's
Nature Operations Division.
"I think the idea is fantastic," said Sally
Wazny, program coordinator. "It gets people
out to a place they might not have known
existed."
After putting on park-provided bug spray
and listening to Wazny share information on
area wildlife, people began the hike to the
Living History Farm.
The Living History Farm sits on 10 acres of
land and recreates a real farm in the mid- to
late-1800s.
A hand-hewn longleaf pine cabin and his-
toric buildings were some of the things that
set the scene for the walk. The buildings were
moved there from around the county, accord-
ing to the city of Gainesville's Web site.
Wazny led the group of 100 through the
paved parking lot and onto a dirt trail.
The only light came from large tin cans
with holes punched in the sides and candles
in the center.


As Wazny warned the group to quiet
down so not to scare away the ghosts, still-
ness settled upon the ghost-seekers.
The group stopped at an authentic cash-
crop field and stared intently at a light com-
ing from the middle of it.
Merald Clark, a nature assistant in the
division, emerged from the field holding a
red kerosene lantern and wearing authentic
1800s clothing featuring a loose-fitting white
cotton shirt, a dark vest and satchel on his
shoulder.
The large group of visitors split up into
three smaller groups so that everyone could
hear stories from two other "ghosts" as well.
"I think the idea is fantastic. It
gets people out to a place they
might not have known existed."
Sally Wazny
program coordinator

Clark, a farmer of sugarcane, cotton and
corn, told of the Civil War's end, incorpo-
rating the effects it had on Hogtown, better
known today as Gainesville.
Next was George Chappell, a farmer with
a deep and raspy voice sitting on a bench.
The setting behind him featured an old-
fashioned tool shed, complete with wooden
tools and sharp axes.
The last ghost was Katherine Edison,
a woman sitting in an authentic 1800s log
cabin singing to her baby in a wooden rock-
ing chair.
She told of her five children and their daily
chores and sang two songs for the listeners.
The entire event ended in a large wooden
schoolhouse, complete with benches and old
lanterns lining the walls for light.
Ginger snaps, hot chocolate, sweet tea and
lemonade were available to guests.


Even though all the characters were fic-
tional, their stories were all based on facts
that each had researched, Wazny said.
All three ghosts used their real names and
are city of Gainesville employees who work
on the Living History Farm the rest of the
year.


"My favorite part is the people that come
around," said Chappell, who has been a
ghost since the first Ghost Walk.
"I once had this little girl come up to me
afterwards and say, 'I'm sorry,' because my
character had lost two sons. She wanted to
comfort me, and it was just so cute."


George Chappell poses as a Civil War ghost

Over and Out

With any hope, Tasergate

is coming to an end
So Andrew Meyer apologized.
So Andrew Meyer withdrew from the semester.
So Andrew Meyer has accepted punishment from UF
and the State Attorney's Office.
But should we accept his apology? It's been six weeks
since Tasergate, when University Police Department officers
Tasered Meyer at Sen. John Kerry's forum Sept. 17. This apol-
ogy could have come sooner, since Meyer's attorney said he
began drafting it as soon as he was released from jail.
In Meyer's apology letter, he seems to make himself out
to be a martyr after sparking debate and protests on campus
about free speech, Student Government's open-mic platform
on the Plaza of the Americas and Meyer's ever-present ques-
tion about voter disenfranchisement after the 2004 election.
Should we buy his apology?
Meyer was reported to have told UPD officers they did
nothing wrong after he was arrested and charged with a third-
degree felony and a second-degree misdemeanor.
Now that Meyer has found worldwide attention, YouTube
fame and probably countless Facebook friend requests, we
wouldn't be surprised if he's ready to put this whole thing
behind him.
We're ready, too. Forgive and forget, the saying goes.
OK, so here goes.
We forgive Meyer for embarrassing UF in front of Sen.
Kerry, the forum's audience, video cameras and the millions
of viewers who watched the embarrassing incident online.
We forgive him for turning an Accent-sponsored event into a
knock-down, drag-out fight.
We forgive him for Accent's response to what happened,
namely for Dr. Jack Kevorkian's speech being moved to next
semester. Hell, we'll even forgive him for the chaos that en-
sued on campus.
But we won't forget any time soon, and we're sure he won't
either.
We know Meyer won't forget, because he has received
punishment from UF and the State Attorney's Office. He
won't forget because now his record will have a permanent
mark on it although some future employers might not view
that as a bad thing.
He won't forget because of the worldwide attention,
YouTube fame and probably countless Facebook friend re-
quests.
UF won't forget, either. Its Committee on Civil, Safe and
Open Environment will be active at least through the end of
the year, and any decisions or recommendations it makes
could affect UF for years to come.
UF students won't forget. Thanks to the catchphrase of the
year "Don't Tase me, bro" and the protests staged, every
student will remember what happened that fateful day.
Hopefully, UPD won't forget. Even though the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement cleared it of any wrongdo-
ing and its two officers are back on duty, we sure as hell hope
officers will think more discriminately next time they whip
out their Taser guns.
Sen. John Kerry won't forget. Out of all the campaigning
and all the speeches he's done in his decades of politics, we're
pretty sure this forum at UF ranks at the top of the "Most
Interesting" list but let's face it, that list isn't very long.
We won't forget, either. This entire ordeal has been a huge
learning experience for everyone at UF, whether they are stu-
dents, student reporters, UF administrators or Andrew Meyer
himself.
We accept Andrew Meyer's apology, but don't take our
word for it.
You can read Meyer's apology letter on Page 7.

Legalizing weed wo
M marijuana will be decriminalized before 2015. When
that day arrives, be prepared for exactly nothing
horrible to happen. Your children won't be mur-
dered at gunpoint. Your liquor store won't be robbed. There
will, however, be some bitchin' parties.
Pizza sales will be up more than 400 percent. Solo Cup
Co. will halt production of cups and increase its share in the
napkin market.
How much else of our social landscape would change? If
you're not a member of the "young disillusioners club," you
know that people aren't going to smoke any more than they
do now. Those who want to smoke five times a day already
do, and those who wish to abstain would do so gracefully
regardless of legality.
Pot wouldn't be smoked on the streets because there
would be "open-joint laws." Weed wouldn't be puffed by
latchkey kids any more than today because 15-year-olds are
the ones who already get the best bud. And people won't go
to work stoned because they would be fired just like the alco-
holic down the street.
It will take a few years before the naysayers fully realize
what marijuana can do for the country. While there won't be
overnight changes, America will eventually benefit from the
commercialization of pot.
This argument isn't just the brainchild of stoners. In
June, 500 economists signed an open letter to the president,
Congress, governors and state legislatures supporting the
legalization of marijuana.
The signers of the study, undertaken by economists at
Harvard University, include three Nobel Prize laureates.
One of the laureates, Milton Friedman, was one of the mas-
terminds behind Ronald Reagan's economic policies and
arguably the most important to risk his John Hancock and
reputation in support of legalization.
And by the way, four of the 500 economists who signed
are UF professors.

Well, maybe Costco wouldn't make an immediate

Forbes.com forecasts that agricultural groups such as

Guest COjL 'il1-I

Andrew Meyer apologizes to UF


To the UF community and The Gator
Nation the world over,
Because of my conduct, this last
month has been a public trial for everyone
who represents the University of Florida. For
that, I want to sincerely apologize. I never
wished to cast a negative light upon our fair
university.
At the John Kerry forum, I stepped out of
line. There were rules in place to ensure that
the forum was run in an orderly fashion, and
I did not follow them.
In society, as in life, there are consequences
for not following the rules. In this instance,
not following the rules has imposed conse-
quences for many more people than just my-
self, people who have seen this school, and
perhaps their degree, tarnished in the eyes of
others through no fault of their own.
For that again, I am truly sorry. As all of
you who attend here know, the University
of Florida is a fabulous institution, a place
where many of the finest young minds in
Florida come to be educated, grow as people,
and ultimately begin to look forward toward
their own careers.
Despite what the media, have portrayed, I
can not imagine a better environment for hon-
est and open discourse, and the way that the
UF community responded and really came to-
gether throughout the firestorm proves that.
Student Government, which has provided
thought-provoking speakers throughout my
time at UF, responded to the incident in the
best fashion possible it provided an open-
mic platform on the Plaza of the Americas.
During a heated public debate, SG showed


Andrew Meyer that it is committed
S to the students of the
Speaking Out University of Florida.
I would also like to
personally thank all of the students of this
great university. Your interest in this matter,
whatever your position, is indicative of the
true spirit of this university. UF is a free and
loving and caring place, and your awareness
and involvement has made me prouder than
ever to be a Florida Gator.
There is one last person and entity that
deserves my utmost praise. To UF President
Bernie Machen, and all of the UF administra-
tion that has had to react to this situation, I
thank you for your calm and just leadership
during this time. I thank you both for allow-
ing me to return to class, and for providing
an arena where students could voice their
concerns, the student and faculty panel. The
creation of the panel proved once and for all
that UF cares about the direction it is going in,
and it wants students to be a part of the deci-
sion-making process.
And finally, I have one last apology to
make. To everyone who came to see John
Kerry speak and to all concerned Americans,
I'm so sorry that I lost my cool in that au-
ditorium. I went there to ask an important
question the question of voter disenfran-
chisement in America cuts to the heart of our
democracy and my failure to act calmly
resulted in this important town forum ending
without the discourse intended. For that, I am
truly sorry.
Andrew Meyer is a senior majoring in tele-
communication.

Driving or the lack thereof.

It's not that hard, we promise. The sign says yield. It's

People who don't use their turn signals
Making everyone else around you think, "What the hell
is that idiot doing?"

People who don't look out for bicyclists
Unlike you, they don't have two tons of metal

People who cut you off and

Was it really that important to \

cars at the stoplight?

ON CAMPUS

Starbucks takes over Java City's spot in Reitz Union


By ILEANA MORALES
Alligator.Writer
imorales@alligator.org

Jenny Talana and Phillip Sotomayor don't
usually drink coffee.
But on Monday, the UF students said they
were cold, and the newest Starbucks on cam-
pus had just opened in the Reitz Union food
court.
"It's nice to have this time of year," said
Talana, a civil and coastal engineering junior,
who ordered a hot chocolate. "I think people
prefer Starbucks, especially when exams come


around."
Sotomayor, a mechanical engineering ju-
nior, agreed, saying the coffee chain's popular-
ity is probably why there are so many stores.
"I see them popping up everywhere on
campus," Sotomayor said. "There's a lot of
them in the world. It's kind of a fad."
The new Starbucks replaces Java City,
which has been moved downstairs to the
Orange & Brew.
Talana said she thinks the Starbucks makes
the Reitz Union food court look "modem and
new."
"I bet it brings the university a lot of money,


"I think people prefer Starbubks,
especially when exams come
around."
Jenny Talana
UF student

too," Talana said.
In a June interview, Mike Mironack, di-
'rector of Reitz Union operations, said the
company's locations on campus have been
very profitable.
Mironack said UF gets a 10.4 percent com-


mission off all food sales. About half of that
commission goes to the Reitz Union, and the
rest goes to the finance and administration de-
partment that oversees food-service contracts,
he added.
The caf6 is open only weekdays, according
to Gator Dining Services' Web site.
Christos Traikos, a classical studies junior,
said he thinks the new Starbucks is conve-
nient.
"The one at the Hub is overcrowded, and
the one at Library West is overcrowded,"
Traikos said. "It's sort of distanced between
the busiest places on campus."

UF PROJECTS

Model homes teach safety


By JOEL MORA
Alligator Contributing Writer

Broken windows, lost roofs and even lost houses
are common scenes for Floridians during hurricane
season, but UF hopes to help prevent losses by
teaching people how to protect their homes.
The Shimberg Center for Affordable Housing
at UF, in partnership with the Florida Department
of Insurance and the Florida Department of
Community Affairs, has been building Regional
Windstorm Damage Training and Demonstration
Centers known as Hurricane Houses since 1997.
The Hurricane Houses are places where the pub-
lic and construction professionals can learn how to
make new and existing homes more wind resistant,
said Joanne Cooper, family and consumer sciences
agent at the St. Johns County Hurricane House.
There are four houses, located in Broward
County, Escambia County, St. Johns County and St.
Lucie County. The last house was built in 2006.
They are designed to resemble normal residen-
tial homes from the outside, but inside, Hurricane
Houses are divided in half. One part is a reception
area, and the other is a training room that contains
models of materials and cut-away sections that
show the internal structure features and illustra-
tions of existing and alternative construction.
Robert Stroh, director of the Shimberg Center


for Affordable Housing, said that the houses were
built in response to the damage Hurricane Andrew
created.
"In today's world, we want our shelter
to be at home as opposed to a Red
Cross shelter, so you want to make
your home as safe as possible."
Karla Lenfesty
Windstorm Mitigation Program specialist

At the houses, people can learn to identify dif-
ferent straps, bracing systems, adhesives, shingles
and window coverings so they .can see what is best
for their home, said Karla Lenfesty, Windstorm
Mitigation Program specialist at the St. Lucie
County Hurricane House.
"In today's world, we want our shelter to be at
home as opposed to a Red Cross shelter," Lenfesty
said, "so you want to make your home as safe as
possible."
Many people who have houses that are pro-
tected from wind damage also go to the house to
receive information on how to properly upgrade
their materials.
'Just like you need a car tune-up, you need a
house tune-up," she said.

SFCC zoo ready


for Halloween
By ANDRE SALHAB
Alligator Contributing Writer

While the white-handed gibbon screams to mark its terri-
tory, visitors at the zoo may give it something else to scream
about Wednesday.
The SFCC Teaching Zoo's 13th annual "Boo at the Zoo"
event will take place on Halloween from 3 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.,
providing costumed activities for children and the young at
heart.
Santa Fe Jack Brown, director of the SFCC
Community Teaching Zoo, said the event is a big trick-
College or-treat adventure for kids and their parents.
The event is designed for toddlers all the
way up to middle school students to come
an enjoy a safe Halloween, he said.
The zoo will be divided into four themed areas, Brown said.
This year's themes are Lost Safari, Monster's Bash, Storybook
or Fairytale Villains and Crazy Carnival.
SFCC students will be located in each of the four areas
dressed in a costume that goes with the area they are in. About
20 students will be in each area.
Rene Ryan, who is a student in the Zoo Animal Technology
Program at SFCC, will be dressed as a tourist being eaten by an
alligator after having fallen out of a canoe.
While the zoo will be decorated in the spirit of Halloween,
the aim is not to frighten, Brown said.
"We don't want to scare the daylights out of some little tod-
dler," he said. "We want them to have fun."

He said Meyer's apology was
completely self-prompted. He


started drafting it immediately af-
ter his release from jail Sept. 18.

the eyes of others through no fault
of their own."
Griscti said Meyer didn't plan
his outburst, as the UPD report
might have suggested.
However, Meyer's remark to
officers in the police car, when he
said they "did nothing wrong,"
was accurate. Meyer had no ani-
mosity toward individual officers,
Griscti said.
Meyer wrote that he attended
the speech to ask Kerry about vot-
er disenfranchisement in America
and he "lost his cool."
Griscti said he and Meyer are
happy with Machen's creation of
a committee to examine UF's poli-
cies on open forums, free speech
and event security.
"The creation of the panel
proved once and for all that UF
cares about the direction it's going
in," Meyer wrote.
Griscti said he attended the
panel's first meeting and is willing
to contribute what he can to the
committee's future discussions.
He said he would examine
the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement's 300-page investiga-
tion of the officers' Taser use.
"I just hope people stay inter-
ested," he said. "This university
could take a lead nationwide."

0F MEN'S BASKETBALL

Donovan cautious in hopes for Werner


By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
dklein@alligator.org

His face may look. familiar, but to UF
coach Billy Donovan, second-year forward
Dan Werner is still a freshman.
"They (the sophomore class) stepped
in a situation last year where they saw the
trust I had for those guys, and they're prob-
ably looking and saying right now, 'It's a
lot more intense on the court today than it
iWas a year ago,'" Donovan said. "So, in es-
sence, we're coaching eight freshmen.
"Although their bodies have changed,
they're still trying to develop that mental
toughness that maybe they didn't tap into
last year."
Werner and fellow frontcourt mates
Jonathan Mitchell and Marreese Speights
constitute the Gators' sophomore class.
Among the three, Werner saw the most
playing time as a freshman averaging
8.9 minutes per game.
"At first I have to admit I was
disappointed. But lately, and es-
pecially these past three days,
I was very pleased with Werner
and the strides he has made."
Billy Donovan
UF men's basketball coach

This edge has led to a higher standard
in Donovan's eyes for the 6-foot-7 forward,
who has disappointed early on.
"The one guy that I thought could have
had a much better summer and off-season
was Dan," Donovan said. "He came in
with about 14 percent body fat but has got-
ten his weight down and is in better shape
than he was."
Donovan said Werner has been improv-
ing every day of practice and has begun to
tui- the comer as the season draws near.
"At first I have to admit I was disap-
pointed," Donovan said. "But lately, and
especially these past three days, I was very
pleased with Werner and the strides he has
made."
Werner had a rough first season, averag-
ing only 1.3 points per game and shooting
just 22 percent from beyond the arc.
Although discouraging, Werner's big-
gest issue may not stem from his skill set
or athleticism.
"He can not be an effective player at this
level unless he has that mentality of all or
nothing on the floor," Donovan said. "Rug

bums, floor burns, whatever you want to
call it. Tough rebounds, be physical, just
play hard. We don't have anyone good
enough to just go out there, be loose, play
and be effective. He needs to give his all."
Werner said the process of going
through ups-and-downs is normal. He also
expects to improve upon last season.
"As far as my shooting and stuff like
that, my freshman year in high school I
kind of went through the same thing,"
Werner said. "My sophomore year I was a
lot better. I think my confidence is going to
come around a lot more."
Werner is sure to see a rise in playing
time this season. Donovan noted that he


might even use Werner as a center when
the team decides to play with a smaller
lineup.
This could pose a threat for opposing
squads, as Werner plans to use his ability
in knocking down outside shots to stretch
the defense.
He also said he will use his size and
strength to become a dual threat, and has
spent as much time working on rebound-
ing as he has on shooting during the off-
season.
"Last year I felt like I got in there and I
couldn't even see where the basket was,"
he said. "But now it feels a lot more com-
fortable."

Adversity nothing

new for veterans

a little bit. [They thought] things were go-
ing to come easy. We just couldn't deliver
that knockout blow that we delivered last
year."
For freshman punter Chas Henry, it is
Sunday's team service that helps him get
over the trials of a loss.
"It's been tough," Henry said. "We
just really talk about when we go through
adversity what we are going to do to
overcome it. Talking to Tim [Tebow's]
family, it's such a great family. I talk to his
dad a lot. He gives you a lot of inspiration
when you go into each week. After a loss,
he'll come up and give you a hug and
everything."
While most of the youth on this Gators
team has never gone through a situa-
tion like this, some of the
veterans have. In 2005,
Meyer's first season at UF,
the Gators had a stretch
Football where they lost two of
three games, with only a
Mississippi State win sandwiched be-
tween losses at Alabama and LSU.
"We wanted to finish the season out
strong for the seniors," center Drew
Miller said. "We played in the Outback
Bowl and finished out a win for them."
Tebow said one of the greatest aids
when dealing with adversity is the team's
off-season fight or flight syndrome pro-
gram, which tests players' toughness
with their backs against the wall.
Since the Gators no longer control
their own destiny in the Southeastern
Conference and need Georgia and
Tennessee to lose for any shot at the SEC
title game in Atlanta, that wall is getting
very close.
"What're you going to do?" Tebow
said. "Are you going to lay down or are
you going to fight? I think our team has a
lot of character from the off-season. That's
what the coaches try to do in the off-sea-
son back us into a comer where you're
either going to stop or keep fighting."

Quarterback may receive steady diet of cortisone shots for shoulder injury


NOTES, from page 20


The injury hindered his mobility against
Georgia and could have a lingering effect
in Saturday's game against Vanderbilt and
beyond.
That has many worried about the superstar
- and for good reason.
Tebow did little to allay fans' fears Monday
morning.


"I'm probably going to have to play with
some pain," he said.
The sophomore originally bruised the
shoulder against Kentucky on Oct. 20 and
fought his way through six sacks last week.
But he said the shoulder felt better after the
Georgia game than after the Kentucky win.
"We're rehabbing it, trying to get it ready
to go come Saturday," Tebow said. "Getting
sacked and running doesn't make it feel too
good."


Despite his quarterback's concerns, offen-
sive coordinator Dan Mullen said Tebow was
healthier after Saturday's game than before it.
Tebow received a cortisone shot before
kickoff and could continue that routine this
week.
The constant hits on Tebow, as painful as
they looked and must have felt, did not further
aggravate the shoulder, Mullen said.
"You have to think he's going to be much
better by this weekend," Mullen said. "It was


just going to be a time deal with the injury."

ETC: Meyer compared the current tailback
situation to the kicker competition in 2006,
calling the starting job wide open. ... UF's
game at South Carolina on Nov. 10 will air
on ESPN at 7:45 p.m. ... Tebow was named
Monday as one of 15 semifinalists for the
Davey O'Brien Award given to the na-
tion's top quarterback, on and off the field.

Point guard overcomes Hurricane Katrina, injuries-


S!

Sophomore guard Lonnika Thompson runs during a scrimmage at the
Basketball Fan Appreciation Day on Oct. 21 at the O'Dome.


* LONNIKA THOMPSON IS
A SOPHOMORE TRANSFER.

By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

The number two represents
a lot for sophomore transfer
Lonnika Thompson.
First of all, it's her jersey
number.
UF coach Amanda Butler will
divide playing time between two
point guards.
Dig a little deeper and you
find that it is the number of high
schools she attended.
And UF is her second college.
It happens to also be the num-
ber of left ankle sprains she has
suffered.
But perhaps most significantly,
Thompson and her family were
given just two days to pack their
lives and flee their New Orleans
home in the face of Hurricane
Katrina.
The guard ended up in
Jonesboro, Ga., to live with rela-
tives for the next seven months.
The 2005 Louisiana Class 5A
All-State First Team honoree had
to start her senior season with a
completely new squad.
She remembers being accepted
by the people in Jonesboro.
"They knew everything that
we were going through, but they
didn't know how we felt about
it," Thompson said. "They treat-
ed us-like we were from Georgia
and had always gone to school
there."
Before the first playoff game
in Georgia, her family headed
back to New Orleans.
Though it wasn't really
"home"- her family was forced


to live in temporary residence
near-her school Thompson fi-
nally returned to McDonogh No.
35 High School.
"I was very excited," she said.
"I was real happy to be back
home."
With Thompson back on the
squad, McDonogh 35 made it to
the 5A state championship game.
The 5-foot-4 guard received
scholarship offers from Florida
Gulf Coast, Chipola College,
Monroe College, and Trinity
Valley Community College.
She decided on Trinity Valley
and would be named to All-
Region and All-Conference teams
after her 12 points per game and
6.2 assists per game helped lead
the team to the regional semifi-
nals.
Then, Butler
-j came calling.
Thompson
remembers the
Women's first phone call.
Basketball The two dis-
cussed Butler's
background as
well as the guard's feelings about
playing for the Gators.
"I really didn't know where I
wanted to go," Thompson said.
"I was like, 'Oh, Florida's not a
bad idea. They have hurricanes,
too,' but I wasn't really worried
about it. ... I know that UF is ca-
pable of winning championships.
I decided I wanted to be a part of
that."
Thompson said the fact that
Butler used to play point guard
for the Gators was a big selling
point.
Butler coaches the point
guards in practice and said the
head coach-point guard relation-
ship is key.


"It's something I put a lot of
emphasis on," Butler said.
"They have to be me when
there's no timeouts left ... You
have to invest a lot of time to get
them to the point where they 11o
that."
Butler looks to split playing
time between Thompson and
fellow sophomore Brittaney
Thomas.
Thomas is bigger and more of
a natural scorer, who Butler said
can "can do things other people
on our team can't do."
Thompson is more of a tradi-
tional point guard and is better at
running the offense and setting
up her teammates.
Butler would not name a
starter for Thursday's exhibition
opener but said both should log
plenty of minutes.
That shouldn't bother
Thompson, as she's just looking
to get back to being completely
healthy.
She occasionally feels linger-
ing pain from her pair of ankle
sprains but thinks she is begin-
ning to get back to full strength.
"It feels like I'm back to the
old me, but the speed and every-
thing still have to come back,"
Thompson said.
The rebuilding process contin-
ues back home in New Orleans
as well.
The walls are finally upright
again at Thompson's home, and
they're starting to see some paint.
Carpeting was even put in last
week.
So while Thompson looks
forward to the beginning of the
season, forgive her if she can't
wait for Christmas.
She might finally get to go
home. For the second time. ,


UF MEN'S GOLF

UF drops semifinal to Bruins


STAFF REPORT

After beating Coastal Carolina in a morning
conclusion to Sunday's darkness-postponed
quarterfinal, the UF men's golf team was un-
able to defeat UCLA on Monday.
The Bruins rallied on the closing holes
in individual matches to win the afternoon
semifinal against the Gators at the Callaway
Golf Collegiate Match Play Championships in
Greensboro, Ga.
Coach Buddy Alexander's ninth-seeded
squad won just one of its five matches against
the fourth-seeded Bruins, finishing 1-3-1 on the
afternoon.
The proximity to victory makes the defeat
that much more frustrating to the Gators.
"We just didn't get it done today," Alexander
said.
"We dropped three matches that we had the
lead in with five holes to play."
One of those matches featured two-time
All-American Billy Horschel and UCLA's Erik
Flores.
While Horschel led or tied Flores for much
of the match, he lost the lead during the 15th
hole and succumbed falling 3 and 1.
Amond Vongvanij, a freshman who has re-
ceived substantial playing time this fall, never
had the lead against Kevin Chappell, who is


ranked No. 5 in Golfweek's collegiate ratings.
Vongvanij kept the match close despite losing
3 and 2.
Senior Manuel Villegas seized a lead on the
14th hole against UCLA's James Lee but fal-
tered during the next two holes and lost 1 up.
The Gators, however, had a few bright spots.
Junior Toby Ragland recorded the only win of
the afternoon after he held a one-hole lead for
15 of 18 holes, edging Jason Kang 1 up.

"We just didn't get it done today,"
Alexander said. "We dropped three
matches that we had the lead in with
five holes to play."
Buddy Alexander
UF men's golf coach


Senior Tyler Brown, in his first outing of the
season, halved his match with Phillip Francis.
Alexander did see some positives in the
team's persistence despite the disappointing
loss.
"We didn't give it away, by any means,"
Alexander said. "UCLA is one of the best teams
out here."
The Gators will have a shot at redemption
Tuesday against Southeastern Conference rival
South Carolina in the third-place match.

UF FOOTBALL

Gators feel sting of piling losses

By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
< bsteele@alligator.org

In the past month the UF football team has
watched Auburn kicker Wes Byrum do the Gator
chomp in The Swamp, LSU running back Jacob
Hester torch their defense on fourth down and
Georgia fans celebrate in Jacksonville for just the
third time in 18 years.
Needless to say, the defending champs need
time to cope after losing three of their last four
games.
For sophomore quarterback Tim Tebow, the an-
swer to coping came from abroad.
Christy Allen, Tebow's sister, listened as the
Gators lost to Georgia from Bangladesh via the in-
temet. Allen and her husband just began serving as
missionaries in the South Asian nation, and plan to
be there for a three-year term.
"It makes you feel good when people
love you like that. It makes you real-
ize this game really doesn't mean that
much in the grand scheme of things."
Tim Tebow
UF quarterback


Looking ahead

to intriguing

bowl matchups

With the college football world
standing on its ear and the
Southeastern Conference
more tangled than Joakim Noah's hair,
there should be some pretty interesting
bowl matchups this year.
UF seemed headed for the SEC
Championship Game and a potential
BCS bowl until Saturday's loss to
Georgia opened up a world of post-
season possibilities.

Here are my
top-five, no mat-

bowl pairings
for the Gators.
Note: techni-
cally, the Gators
are not eligible
for a bowl game
yet (they need
one more win to
qualify), but a boy
can dream, right?


When Tebow got home, he had a phone call
waiting from his sister.
"It makes you feel good when people love you
like that," Tebow said. "It makes you realize this
game really doesn't mean that much in the grand
Cgheme of things."
Wide receiver Percy Harvin said it's the talks
with fellow wideouts that help him deal with it all.
That doesn't mean, however, that they ever pic-
tured themselves dropping three of four.
"We never thought we would be in this situation
right now," Harvin said. "I think a lot of players
took things for granted, were living off of last year

Estopinan out for season with ACL tear


* TIM TEBOW IS STILL BOTHERED
BY A SHOULDER CONTUSION.

By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
nzaccardi@alligator.org

The UF defensive line took a major hit
Monday, as Coach Urban Meyer said start-
ing tackle Javier Estopinan and backup
Brandon Antwine are out for the season.
Another tackle, redshirt freshman Terron
Sanders, is out indefinitely with a left high-
ankle sprain.




*NBA: Portland at San Antonio

Estopinan, a junior starter alongside
Clint McMillan in the middle, suffered his
third ACL injury in the last three years
against Georgia on Saturday.
Meyer spent part of his
Sunday with Estopinan and
his family.
"There's not a tougher
Foot all guy, not a better guy," Meyer
said.
Antwine's news comes as less of a shock,
as he spent 10 days in the hospital earlier this
month with muscular back problems.
The loss of Estopinan and Antwine, two
of the Gators' top three tackles, leaves a huge

hole opposite McMillan.

TEBOW'S HEALTH STILL IN QUESTION:
With no Georgia defenders around, the
only thing Tim Tebow had to protect his
bruised right shoulder from on Monday
was the weather.
He left UF's practice field bundled up
under a red no-contact jersey protected by
a long-sleeve undershirt as the nighttime
temperature dipped into the low 60s.
Tebow needs to take every precaution to
keep his non-throwing shoulder safe.

Meyer writes that he 'stepped out of line' By KIM WILMATH Alligator Staff Writer kwilmath@alligator.org Andrew Meyer has addressed an apology letter to UF students, UF President Bernie Machen and Student Government for his "failure to act calmly" during a Sept. 17 forum with Sen. John Kerry. In a letter released to the Alligator on Monday afternoon, Meyer wrote that he "stepped out of line" and felt he had tarnished UF's image. "For that again, I am truly sorry," Meyer wrote. Meyer, a UF telecommunication senior, was tackled, Tasered and arrested by University Police Department officers during a questionand-answer session following the speech from Kerry, a Democrat who represents Massachusetts. Meyer was charged with a third-degree felony for resisting arrest with violence and a second-degree misdemeanor for disturbing the peace. Meyer has since withdrawn from classes, said Robert Griscti, Meyer's attorney. He plans to return in January. Meyer has accepted punishment from UP for violating the Student Code of Conduct, stated a news release from Patricia Telles-Irvin, UF's vice president of stuLocal -dent affairs.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 30,2007 U ALLIGATOR, 3 Complex offers 'green' living for $1,200 a month By APRIL DUDASH Alligator Writer The Bartram, an environmentally friendly apartment complex expected to open next year, will be one of the first of its kind in the United States. 10 Located on Old Archer Road, it will be one of the first rental properties in the U.S. to receive certification from Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED. The U.S. Green Building Council program stresses environmental sustainability in buildings by awarding credits to the development. Credits are based on areas such as site location, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, and indoor environmental quality Earned points add up to a LEED qualification level, which can be Certifed, Silver, Gold or Platinum. Keith Colgan, president of Foram Development, said the developers are aiming at Certified. Foram Development is part of Foram Group, the owner of the property and lead developer of The Bartram. It's the group's policy to have every one of its projects either LEED certified or considered a sustainable development, Colgan said. Pam Brown, the manager of Contemporary Management Concepts, said she publicized The Bartram at UF's Fall Housing Fair last week. Construction for The Bartram started in the spring, and is expected to open around May or June 2008. The units will feature granite countertops, energy-efficient appliances and walk-in closets, he said. Local The complex itself will News have concierge service, a fitness center, cyber caf6 with a coffee bar, pool with fountains, six-story parking garage and a poolside, gourmet outdoor kitchen. A one-bedroom apartment will cost about $1,200 per month. A three-bedroom apartment will cost about $2,500, he said. Brown said she receives about five to six calls a day from potential renters. Colgan said he is excited to break new ground in Gainesville with this apartment project. "We own our properties and we keep them," Colgan said. "We're very proud of them." -4 Provided by Nikki Nova The Bartram, expected to open in May or June, will be one of the first rental properties to receive certification from Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED.

4, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2007 ON CAMPUS Business executive highlights value of networking By DEBORAH SWERDLOW Alligator Contributing Writer A JPMorgan Chase executive said his 20 years of business success are highly related to the values of a student organization Monday night. Speaking to a standing-room-only crowd of more than 100 people, Louis Schioppo, chief financial officer for JPMorgan Chase, said he is interested in hiring members of the Association of Latino Professionals in Finance and Accounting. Schioppo said the association's members are highly talented students who differentiate themselves. "If you want to be in that pool, (it's) a good place to start," he said. The association's UF chapter was established this year, said Yadira Sanchez, co-president and a UF accounting senior. Schioppo spoke at the group's second meeting. Although he is not Latin and was not a member of the association in college, Schioppo said the group's values would lead students to success. He advised students not to be afraid of taking risks, especially early in their careers, and to develop their skills at every opportunity. "Your skill set, your toolbox, you have to keep it fresh," he said. Schioppo also emphasized the value of networking. As an example, he used the stosy of his relationship with Carlos Barriga, a UF alumnus, and Alina Garcia, a Marriott employee and graduate of Florida International University. Barriga and Garcia also spoke at the meeting. "As you think about your student life and who you want to be, if you want to be a leader, start now." Louis Schioppo chief financial officer for JPMorgan Chase Schioppo met Barriga and Garcia at the association's national convention in Orlando in August. After meeting Barriga, Schioppo hired Barriga on the spot. Since she met him, Garcia said Schioppo has become her mentor. Garcia also offered four tips to make the transition from college to the professional world easier. "Never look at your job as that moneymaker," she said. "Look at it as an extension of your education." Valentina Gonzalez, a fourth-year UF finance major, said hearing from recent college graduates was helpful because they're the same age and have common interests. During a question-and-answer session, Schioppo said students should concentrate on the opportunities in front of them at the moment. "As you think about your student life and who you want to be, if you want to be a leader, start now," he said.

"The Big Red team had a lot of problems -when it came down to it," said Lillian Guevara-Castro, features editor at The Gainesville Sun. "Their work reflected the difficulties they faced with technology, which is ultimately why they were eliminated." Guevara-Castro made the second elimination Monday for the SFCC contest "The Interns," which incorporates teamwork withweekly tasks. SFCC's Student Government and the StudentAdvocacy Network joined together three years ago to create the contest. Each team consists of four SFCC students, and each member of the winning team will receive a scholarship for 12 credits at SFCC, as well as an internship that corresponds with their discipline. Guevara-Castro said the Bomb Squad team articulated its concept clearly and effectively. "We were honored to hear such praise about our work because we f %' ., ~ put our hearts and souls into this task," said Bomb Squad member Gustavo Moran, 19. Guevara-Castro said her decision was based on the design, construction and reporting of a newspaper page, which was filled with articles and images about local workforce issues.

College The teams will propose a curriculum for Gainesville High School's Academy of Health Professionals, which educates and certifies students in different health-related fields, said Laurie Welch, director of human resources at North Florida Regional Medical Center.

The Ghost Walk is a night hike on the Living History Farm at Morningside Nature Center put on by the city of Gainesville's Nature Operations Division. "I think the idea is fantastic," said Sally Wazny, program coordinator. "It gets people out to a place they might not have known existed." After putting on park-provided bug spray and listening to Wazny share information on area wildlife, people began the hike to the Living History Farm. The Living History Farm sits on 10 acres of land and recreates a real farm in the midto late-1800sA hand-hewn longleaf pine cabin and historic buildings were some of the things that set the scene for the walk. The buildings were moved there from around the county, according to the city of Gainesville's Web site. Wazny led the group of 100 through the paved parking lot and onto a dirt trail. The only light came from large tin cans with holes punched in the sides and candles in the center. "I think the idea is fantastic. It gets people out to a place they might not have known existed." Sally Wazny program coordinator Clark, a farmer of sugarcane, cotton and corn, told of the Civil War's end, incorporating the effects it had on Hogtown, better known today as Gainesville. Next was George Chappell, a farmer with a deep and raspy voice sitting on a bench. The setting behind him featured an oldfashioned tool shed, complete with wooden tools and sharp axes. The last ghost was Katherine Edison, a woman sitting in an authentic 1800s log cabin singing to her baby in a wooden rocking chair. She told of her five children and their daily chores and sang two songs for the listeners. The entire event ended in a large wooden schoolhouse, complete with benches and old lanterns lining the walls for light. Ginger snaps, hot chocolate, sweet tea and lemonade were available to guests.

6, ALLIGATOR E TUESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2007 Editorial Over and Out With any hope, Tasergate is coming to an end S o Andrew Meyer apologized. So Andrew Meyer withdrew from the semester. So Andrew Meyer has accepted punishment from UF and the State Attorney's Office. But should we accept his apology? It's been six weeks since Tasergate, when University Police Department officers Tasered Meyer at Sen. John Kerry's forum Sept. 17. This apology could have come sooner, since Meyer's attorney said he began drafting it as soon as he was released from jail. In Meyer's apology letter, he seems to make himself out to be a martyr after sparking debate and protests on campus about free speech, Student Government's open-mic platform on the Plaza of the Americas and Meyer's ever-present question about voter disenfranchisement after the 2004 election. Should we buy his apology? Meyer was reported to have told UPD officers they did nothing wrong after he was arrested and charged with a thirddegree felony and a second-degree misdemeanor. Now that Meyer has found worldwide attention, YouTube fame and probably countless Facebook friend requests, we wouldn't be surprised if he's ready to put this whole thing behind him. We're ready, too. Forgive and forget, the saying goes. OK, so here goes. We forgive Meyer for embarrassing UF in front of Sen. Kerry, the forum's audience, video cameras and the millions of viewers who watched the embarrassing incident online. We forgive him for turning an Accent-sponsored event into a knock-down, drag-out fight. We forgive him for Accent's response to what happened, namely for Dr. Jack Kevorkian's speech being moved to next semester. Hell, we'll even forgive him for the chaos that ensued on campus. But we won't forget any time soon, and we're sure he won't either. We know Meyer won't forget, because he has received punishment from UF and the State Attorney's Office. He won't forget because now his record will have a permanent mark on it -although some future employers might not view that as a bad thing. He won't forget because of the worldwide attention, YouTube fame and probably countless Facebook friend requests. UF won't forget, either. Its Committee on Civil, Safe and Open Environment will be active at least through the end of the year, and any decisions or recommendations it makes could affect UF for years to come. UF students won't forget. Thanks to the catchphrase of the year -"Don't Tase me, bro" -and the protests staged, every student will remember what happened that fateful day Hopefully, UPD won't forget. Even though .the Florida Department of Law Enforcement cleared it of any wrongdoing and its two officers are back on duty, we sure as hell hope officers will think more discriminately next time they whip out their Taser guns. Sen. John Kerry won't forget. Out of all the campaigning and all the speeches he's done in his decades of politics, we're pretty sure this forum at UF ranks at the top of the "Most Interesting" list -but let's face it, that list isn't very long. We won't forget, either. This entire ordeal has been a huge learning experience for everyone at UF, whether they are students, student reporters, UF administrators or Andrew Meyer himself. We accept Andrew Meyer's apology, but don't take our word for it.

When that day arrives, be prepared for exactly nothing horrible to happen. Your children won't be murdered at gunpoint. Your liquor store won't be robbed. There will, however, be some bitchin' parties. Pizza sales will be up more than 400 percent. Solo Cup Co. will halt production of cups and increase its share in the napkin market. How much else of our social landscape would change? If you're not a member of the "young disillusioners club," you know that people aren't going to smoke any more than they do now. Those who want to smoke five times a day already do, and those who wish to abstain would do so gracefully regardless of legality. Pot wouldn't be smoked on the streets because there would be "open-joint laws." Weed wouldn't be puffed by latchkey kids any more than today because 15-year-olds are the ones who already get the best bud. And people won't go to work stoned because they would be fired just like the alcoholic down the street. It will take a few years before the naysayers fully realize what marijuana can do for the country. While there won't be overnight changes, America will eventually benefit from the commercialization of pot. This argument isn't just the brainchild of stoners. In June, 500 economists signed an open letter to the president, Congress, governors and state legislatures supporting the legalization of marijuana. The signers of the study, undertaken by economists at Harvard University, include three Nobel Prize laureates. One of the laureates, Milton Friedman, was one of the masterminds behind Ronald Reagan's economic policies and arguably the most important to risk his John Hancock and reputation in support of legalization. And by the way, four of the 500 economists who signed are UF professors. How could such intelligent people support such a heaThe views expressed here are not thenish drug? Because the benefits outweigh the supposed social costs. Ending the enforcement of marijuana prohibition would save the government $7.7 billion a year, according to Harvard's report.

Imagine $14 billion a year spent on fixing roads or hiring new teachers instead of illegally funding terrorists and drug czars. Yes, the underground marijuana market would fall to pieces. You wouldn't buy from Bill down the street because his weed changes hands 20 times between the grower and buyer. That means 20 markups of price a user would have to absorb when he could buy weed wholesale from Costco. Well, maybe Costco wouldn't make an immediate jump into the lucrative market, but plenty of stores would. Forbes.com forecasts that agricultural groups such as ConAgra foods would be potential growers. Even liquor businesses like Constellation Brands -maker of Corona -are potential large-scale growers because of the undeniable abundance of potential profit. Marijuana is already California's largest crop, even worth more than wine, according to Economist.com. Since April, $10 billion worth of plants have been seized, and this figure doesn't even take into account the crops that weren't found. When legalization occurs, you can bet the farm that more American entrepreneurs will jump on an opportunity to grow, especially in the fertile regions of the South and West. Jobs will be created in agriculture, retailers including Modern Age and gas stations might start selling bud to helping out local economies, and your best friends would no longer be arrested for an incredibly silly crime.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2007 0 ALLIGATOR, 7 Guest column Andrew Meyer apologizes to UF T the UF community and The Gator Nation the world over, Because of my conduct, this last month has been a public trial for everyone who represents the University of Florida. For that, I want to sincerely apologize. I never wished to cast a negative light upon our fair university. At the John Kerry forum, I stepped out of line. There were rules in place to ensure that the forum was run in an orderly fashion, and I did not follow them. In society, as in life, there are consequences for not following the rules. In this instance, not following the rules has imposed consequences for many more people than just myself, people who have seen this school, and perhaps their degree, tarnished in the eyes of others through no fault of their own. For that again, I am truly sorry. As all of you who attend here know, the University of Florida is a fabulous institution, a place where many of the finest young minds in Florida come to be educated, grow as people, and ultimately begin to look forward toward their own careers. Despite what the media, have portrayed, I can not imagine a better environment for honest and open discourse, and the way that the UF community responded and really came together throughout the firestorm proves that. Student Government, which has provided thought-provoking speakers throughout my time at UF, responded to the incident in the best fashion possible -it provided an openmic platform on the Plaza of the Americas. During a heated public debate, SG showed Andrew Meyer that it is committed to the students of the Speaking Out University of Florida. I would also like to personally thank all of the students of this great university. Your interest in this matter, whatever your position, is indicative of the true spirit of this university. UF is a free and loving and caring place, and your awareness and involvement has made me prouder than ever to be a Florida Gator. There is one last person and entity that deserves my utmost praise. To UF President Bernie Machen, and all of the UF administration that has had to react to this situation, I thank you for your calm and just leadership during this time. I thank you both for allowing me to return to class, and for providing an arena where students could voice their concerns, the student and faculty panel. The creation of the panel proved once and for all that UF cares about the direction it is going in, and it wants students to be a part of the decision-making process. And finally, I have one last apology to make. To everyone who came to see John Kerry speak and to all concerned Americans, I'm so sorry that I lost my cool in that auditorium. I went there to ask an important question -the question of voter disenfranchisement in America cuts to the heart of our democracy -and my failure to act calmly resulted in this important town forum ending without the discourse intended. For that, I am truly sorry. Andrew Metyer is a senior majoring in telecommunication. What we're pissed about this week: Driving -or the lack thereof. ....................

8, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2007 ON CAMPUS Starbucks takes over Java City's spot in Reitz Union By ILEANA MORALES Alligator.Writer imorales@alligator.org Jenny Talana and Phillip Sotomayor don't usually drink coffee. But on Monday, the UF students said they were cold, and the newest Starbucks on campus had just opened in the Reitz Union food court. "It's nice to have this time of year," said Talana, a civil and coastal engineering junior, who ordered a hot chocolate. "I think people prefer Starbucks, especially when exams come around." Sotomayor, a mechanical engineering junior, agreed, saying the coffee chain's popularity is probably why there are so many stores. "I see them popping up everywhere on campus," Sotomayor said. "There's a lot of them in the world. It's kind of a fad." The new Starbucks replaces Java City, which has been moved downstairs to the Orange & Brew. Talana said she thinks the Starbucks makes the Reitz Union food court look "modem and new. "Ibet it brings the university a lot of money, "I think people prefer S especially when exan around." too," Talana said. In a June interview, Mike rector of Reitz Union operati company's locations on camp very profitable. Mironack said UF gets a 10.4 mission off all food sales. About half of that tarbuCks, commission goes to the Reitz Union, and the s come rest goes to the finance and administration department that oversees food-service contracts, he added.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, 9 UF PROJECTS Model homes teach safety By JOEL MORA Alligator Contributing Writer Broken windows, lost roofs and even lost houses are common scenes for Floridians during hurricane season, but UF hopes to help prevent losses by teaching people how to protect their homes. The Shimberg Center for Affordable Housing at UF, in partnership with the Florida Department of Insurance and the Florida Department of Community Affairs, has been building Regional Windstorm Damage Training and Demonstration Centers known as Hurricane Houses since 1997. The Hurricane Houses are places where the public and construction professionals can leam how to make new and existing homes more wind resistant, said Joanne Cooper, family and consumer sciences agent at the St. Johns County Hurricane House. There are four houses, located in Broward County, Escambia County, St. Johns County and St. Lucie County. The last house was built in 2006. They are designed to resemble normal residential homes from the outside, but inside, Hurricane Houses are divided in half. One part is a reception area, and the other is a training room that contains models of materials and cut-away sections that show the intemal structure features and illustrations of existing and alternative construction. Robert Stroh, director of the Shimberg Center for Affordable Housing, said that the houses were built in response to the damage Hurricane Andrew created. "In today's world, we want our shelter to be at home as opposed to a Red Cross shelter, so you want to make your home as safe as possible." Karla Lenfesty Windstorm Mitigation Program specialist At the houses, people can learn to identify different straps, bracing systems, adhesives, shingles and window coverings so they can see what is best for their home, said Karla Lenfesty, Windstorm Mitigation Program specialist at the St. Lucie County Hurricane House. "In today's world, we want our shelter to be at home as opposed to a Red Cross shelter," Lenfesty said, "so you want to make your home as safe as possible." Many people who have houses that are protected from wind damage also go to the house to receive information on how to properly upgrade their materials. "Just like you need a car tune-up, you need a house tune-up," she said. L(V~~ inW >u!> cr f' f+f (D -h -+ -. 0 -< 2, (D (D Covance needs healthy females to take part in a clinical research study.

10, ALLIGATOR S TUESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2007 Meyer plans to return to class in January MEYER, from Page 1 learned a lot about journalism in the process. "Given that this is his chosen field, it's been a good educational process," Griscti said. He said Meyer's apology was completely self-prompted. He started drafting it immediately after his release from jail Sept. 18. "In society, as in life, there are consequences for not following the rules," Meyer wrote. "In this instance, not following the rules has imposed consequences for many people other than myself, people who have seen their school, and perhaps their degree, tarnished in SFCC zoo ready for Halloween By ANDRE SALHAB Alligator Contributing Writer While the white-handed gibbon screams to mark its territory, visitors at the zoo may give it something else to scream about Wednesday. The SFCC Teaching Zoo's 13th annual "Boo at the Zoo" event will take place on Halloween from 3 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., providing costumed activities for children and the young at heart. Santa Fe Jack Brown, director of the SFCC Community Teaching Zoo, said the event is a big trickCollege or-treat adventure for kids and their parents. The event is designed for toddlers all the way up to middle school students to come an enjoy a safe Halloween, he said. The zoo will be divided into four themed areas, Brown said. This year's themes are Lost Safari, Monster's Bash, Storybook or Fairytale Villains and Crazy Carnival. SFCC students will be located in each of the four areas dressed in a costume that goes with the area they are in. About 20 students will be in each area. Rene Ryan, who is a student in the Zoo Animal Technology Program at SFCC, will be dressed as a tourist being eaten by an alligator after having fallen out of a canoe. While the zoo will be decorated in the spirit of Halloween, the aim is not to frighten, Brown said. "We don't want to scare the daylights out of some little toddler," he said. "We want them to have fun." the eyes of others through no fault of their own." Griscti said Meyer didn't plan his outburst, as the UPD report might have suggested. However, Meyer's remark to officers in the police car, when he said they "did nothing wrong," was accurate. Meyer had no animosity toward individual officers, Griscti said. Meyer wrote that he attended the speech to ask Kerry about voter disenfranchisement in America and he "lost his cool." Griscti said he and Meyer are happy with Machen's creation of a committee to examine UF's policies on open forums, free speech and event security. "The creation of the panel proved once and for all that UF cares about the direction it's going in," Meyer wrote. Griscti said he attended the panel's first meeting and is willing to contribute what he can to the committee's future discussions. He said he would examine the Florida Department of Law Enforcement's 300-page investigation of the officers' Taser use. "I just hope people stay interested," he said. "This university could take a lead nationwide." REGISTER FOR GATOR GALLOP! FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2,2007 PERCY BEARD TRACK at JAMES G.

18, ALLIGATOR i TUESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2007 bF MEWS BASKETBALL Donovan cautious in hopes for Werner By DANNY KLEIN Alligator Staff Writer dklein@alligator.org His face may look familiar, but to UF coach Billy Donovan, second-year forward Dan Werner is still a freshman. "They (the sophomore class) stepped in a situation last year where they saw the trust I had for those guys, and they're probably looking and saying right now, 'It's a lot more intense on the court today than it isas a year ago,' Donovan said. "So, in essence, we're coaching eight freshmen. "Although their bodies have changed, they're still trying to develop that mental toughness that maybe they didn't tap into last year." Werner and fellow frontcourt mates Jonathan Mitchell and Marreese Speights constitute the Gators' sophomore class. Among the three, Werner saw the most playing time as a freshman -averaging 8.9 minutes per game. "At first I have to admit I was disappointed. But lately, and especially these past three days, I was very pleased with Werner and the strides he has made." Billy Donovan UF men's basketball coach This edge has led to a higher stance in Donovan's eyes for the 6-foot-7 forw who has disappointed early on. "The one guy that I thought could I had a much better summer and off-se was Dan," Donovan said. "He cam with about 14 percent body fat but has ten his weight down and is in better si than he was." Donovan said Werner has been imp ing every day of practice and has begun hum the comer as the season draws nei "At first I have to admit I was di pointed," Donovan said. "But lately, especially these past three days, I was, pleased with Werner and the strides he made." Werner had a rough first season, ave ing only 1.3 points per game and shoc just 22 percent from beyond the arc. Although discouraging, Werner's gest issue may not stem from his skill or athleticism. "He can not bean effective player at level unless he has that mentality of a nothing on the floor," Donovan said." CALLIN', from page 20 high of its mid-season turnaround, Miami gives UF a tougher game than expected and the Gators' secondary makes quarterback Kyle Wright look like the reincarnation of Vinny Testaverde, but UF triumphs 38-28. 3. Outback Bowl vs. Illinois burns, floor bums, whatever you want to call it. Tough rebounds, be physical, just play hard. We don't have anyone good enough to just go out there, be loose, play and be effective. He needs to give his all." Werner said the process of going through ups-and-downs is normal. He also expects to improve upon last season. "As far as my shooting and stuff like that, my freshman year in high school I kind of went through the same thing," Werner said. "My sophomore year I was a lot better. I think my confidence is going to come around a lot more." Werner is sure to see a rise in playing time this season. Donovan noted that he might even use Werner as a center when the team decides to play with a smaller lineup. This could pose a threat for opposing squads, as Werner plans to use his ability in knocking down outside shots to stretch the defense. He alo said he will use his size and strength to become a dual threat, and has spent as much time working on rebounding as he has on shooting during the offseason. "Last year I felt like I got in there and I couldn't even see where the basket was," he said. "But now it feels a lot more comfortable." Nicole Safker/ Alligator Staff Sophomore forward Dan Werner looks downcourt during a scrimmage at the Basketball Fan Appreciation Day in the O'Connell Center on Oct. 21. How it could happen: UF finishes second, third or fourth overall in the conference, and Illinois finishes second in the Big Ten. PREDICTION: Ron Zook makes his glorious return to the state of Florida, and beats his former team 30-27. The Alligator's Nick Zaccardi, an avid Ilini fan, comes up with the comy headline 'Juiced' for the paper's cover story after Illinois quarterback Juice Williams scores three times. 4. Gaylord Hotels Music City Bowl vs. Florida State How it could happen: UF finishes sixth, seventh or eighth in the SEC, and FSU places fifth or sixth in the ACC. The Gators are currently tied for sixth, and the 'Noles are tied for seventh. PREDICTION: The Gators and 'Noles square off for the second time this season, but the result is the same. UF defensive back Wondy Pierre-Louis intercepts both Xavier Lee and Drew Weatherford for touchdowns and simultaneously sets an NCAA high-jump record and eams a gymnastics scholarship with his no-hand front flips into the end zone. The Gators win again, and Bobby Bowden is enraged when told of the result two days later. Adversity nothing new for veterans FOOTBALL, from page 20 a little bit. [They thought] things were going to come easy. We just couldn't deliver that knockout blow that we delivered last year." For freshman punter Chas Henry, it is Sunday's team service that helps him get over the trials of a loss. "It's been tough," Henry said. "We just really talk about when we go through adversity what we are going to do to overcome it. Talking to Tim [Tebow's] family, it's such a great family. I talk to his dad a lot. He gives you a lot of inspiration when you go into each week. After a loss, he'll come up and give you a hug and everything." While most of the youth on this Gators team has never gone through a situation like this, some of the veterans have. In 2005, Meyer's first season at UF, the Gators had a stretch Football where they lost two of three games, with only a Mississippi State win sandwiched between losses at Alabama and LSU. "We wanted to finish the season out strong for the seniors," center Drew Miller said. "We played in the Outback Bowl and finished out a win for them." Tebow said one of the greatest aids when dealing with adversity is the team's off-season fight or flight syndrome program, which tests players' toughness with their backs against the wall. Since the Gators no longer control their own destiny in the Southeastern Conference and need Georgia and Tennessee to lose for any shot at the SEC title game in Atlanta, that wall is getting very close. "What're you going to do?" Tebow said. "Are you going to lay down or are you going to fight? I think our team has a lot of character from the off-season. That's what the coaches try to do in the off-season -back us into a corner where you're either going to stop or keep fighting." 5. AutoZone Liberty Bowl vs. East Carolina How it could happen: UF places sixth, seventh or eighth in the conference, and ECU wins out in Conference USA. PREDICTION: The Pirates paint it purple, pulling off a stunning upset in overtime, 48-45. I am forcibly removed from the press box for cheering. Quarterback may receive steady diet of cortisone shots for shoulder injury NOTES, from page 20 The injury hindered his mobility against Georgia and could have a lingering effect in Saturday's game against Vanderbilt and beyond. That has many worried about the superstar and for good reason. -Tebow did little to allay fans' fears Monday morning. "I'm probably going to have to play with some pain," he said. The sophomore originally bruised the shoulder against Kentucky on Oct. 20 and fought his way through six sacks last week. But he said the shoulder felt better after the Georgia game than after the Kentucky win. "We're rehabbing it, trying to get it ready to go come Saturday," Tebow said. "Getting sacked and running doesn't make it feel too good." Despite his quarterback's concerns, offensive coordinator Dan Mullen said Tebow was healthier after Saturday's game than before it. Tebow received a cortisone shot before kickoff and could continue that routine this week. The constant hits on Tebow, as painful as they looked and must have felt, did not further aggravate the shoulder, Mullen said. "You have to think he's going to be much better by this weekend," Mullen said. "It was just going to be a time deal with the injury." ETC: Meyer compared the current tailback situation to the kicker competition in 2006, calling the starting job wide open. .UF's game at South Carolina on Nov. 10 will air on ESPN at 7:45 p.m. .Tebow was named Monday as one of 15 semifinalists for the Davey O'Brien Award -given to the nation's top quarterback, on and off the field.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2007 0 ALLIGATOR, 19 Point guard overcomes Hurricane Katrina, injuriesNicole Safker / Alligator Staff Sophomore guard Lonnika Thompson runs during a scrimmage at the Basketball Fan Appreciation Day on Oct. 21 at the O'Dome. 0 LONNIKA THOMPSON IS A SOPHOMORE TRANSFER. By PHIL KEGLER Alligator Staff Writer pkegler@alligator.org The number two represents a lot for sophomore transfer Lonnika Thompson. First of all, it's her jersey number. UF coach Amanda Butler will divide playing time between two point guards. Dig a little deeper and you find that it is the number of high schools she attended. And UF is her second college. It happens to also be the number of left ankle sprains she has suffered. Butperhaps most significantly, Thompson and her family were given just two days to pack their lives and flee their New Orleans home in the face of Hurricane Katrina. The guard ended up in Jonesboro, Ga., to live with relatives for the next seven months. The 2005 Louisiana Class 5A All-State First Team honoree had to start her senior season with a completely new squad. She remembers being accepted by the people in Jonesboro. "They knew everything that we were going through, but they didn't know how we felt about it," Thompson said. "They treated us -like we were from Georgia and had always gone to school there." Before the first playoff game in Georgia, her family headed back to New Orleans. Though it wasn't really "home"her family was forced to live in temporary residence near-her school -Thompson finally returned to McDonogh No. 35 High School. "I was very excited," she said. "I was real happy to be back home." With Thompson back on the squad, McDonogh 35 made it to the 5A state championship game. The 5-foot-4 guard received scholarship offers from Florida Gulf Coast, Chipola College, Monroe College, and Trinity Valley Community College. She decided on Trinity Valley and would be named to AllRegion and All-Conference teams after her 12 points per game and 6.2 assists per game helped lead the team to the regional semifinals. Then, Butler came calling. Thompson remembers the Women's first phone call. Basketball The two discussed Butler's background as well as the guard's feelings about playing for the Gators. "I really didn't know where I wanted to go," Thompson said. "I was like, 'Oh, Florida's not a bad idea. They have hurricanes, too,' but I wasn't really worried about it. .I know that UF is capable of winning championships. I decided I wanted to be a part of that." Thompson said the fact that Butler used to play point guard for the Gators was a big selling point. Butler coaches the point guards in practice and said the head coach-point guard relationship is key. "It's something I put a lot of emphasis on," Butler said. "They have to be me when there's no timeouts left .You have to invest a lot of time to get them to the point where they .o that." Butler looks to split playing time between Thompson and fellow sophomore Brittaney Thomas. Thomas is bigger and more of a natural scorer, who Butler said can "can do things other people on our team can't do." Thompson is more of a traditional point guard and is better at running the offense and setting up her teammates. Butler would not name a starter for Thursday's exhibition opener but said both should log plenty of minutes. That shouldn't bother Thompson, as she's just looking to get back to being completely healthy. She occasionally feels lingering pain from her pair of ankle sprains but thinks she is beginning to get back to full strength. "It feels like I'm back to the old me, but the speed and everything still have to come back," Thompson said. The rebuilding process continues back home in New Orleans as well. The walls are finally upright again at Thompson's home, and they're starting to see some paint. Carpeting was even put in last week. So while Thompson looks forward to the beginning of the season, forgive her if she can't wait for Christmas. She might finally get to go home. For the second time. UF MEN'S GOLF UF drops semifinal to Bruins STAFF REPORT After beating Coastal Carolina in a morning conclusion to Sunday's darkness-postponed quarterfinal, the UF men's golf team was unable to defeat UCLA on Monday. The Bruins rallied on the closing holes in individual matches to win the afternoon semifinal against the Gators at the Callaway Golf Collegiate Match Play Championships in Greensboro, Ga. Coach Buddy Alexander's ninth-seeded squad won just one of its five matches against the fourth-seeded Bruins, finishing 1-3-1 on the afternoon. The proximity to victory makes the defeat that much more frustrating to the Gators. "We just didn't get it done today," Alexander said. "We dropped three matches that we had the lead in with five holes to play." One of those matches featured two-time All-American Billy Horschel and UCLA's Erik Flores. While Horschel led or tied Flores for much of the match, he lost the lead during the 15th hole and succumbed -falling 3 and 1. Arnond Vongvanij, a freshman who has received substantial playing time this fall, never had the lead against Kevin Chappell, who is ranked No. 5 in Golfweek's collegiate ratings. Vongvanij kept the match close despite losing 3 and 2. Senior Manuel Villegas seized a lead on the 14th hole against UCLA's James Lee but faltered during the next two holes and lost 1 up. The Gators, however, had a few bright spots. Junior Toby Ragland recorded the only win of the afternoon after he held a one-hole lead for 15 of 18 holes, edging Jason Kang 1 up. "We just didn't get it done today," Alexander said. "We dropped three matches that we had the lead in with five holes to play." Buddy Alexander UF men's golf coach Senior Tyler Brown, in his first outing of the season, halved his match with Phillip Francis. Alexander did see some positives in the team's persistence despite the disappointing loss. "We didn't give it away, by any means," Alexander said. "UCLA is one of the best teams out here." The Gators will have a shot at redemption Tuesday against Southeastern Conference rival South Carolina in the third-place match.

Sports TUESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2007 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org UF FOOTBALL Gators feel sting of piling losses By BRIAN STEELE Alligator Staff Writer C bsteele@aliigator.org In the past month the UF football team has watched Auburn kicker Wes Byrum do the Gator chomp in The Swamp, LSU running back Jacob Hester torch their defense on fourth down and Georgia fans celebrate in Jacksonville for just the third time in 18 years. Needless to say, the defending champs need time to cope after losing three of their last four games. For sophomore quarterback Tim Tebow, the answer to coping came from abroad. Christy Allen, Tebow's sister, listened as the Gators lost to Georgia from Bangladesh via the interet. Allen and her husband just began serving as missionaries in the South Asian nation, and plan to be there for a three-year term. "It makes you feel good when people love you like that. It makes you realize this game really doesn't mean that much in the grand scheme of things." Tim Tebow UF quarterback When Tebow got home, he had a phone call waiting from his sister. "It makes you feel good when people love you like that," Tebow said. "It makes you realize this game really doesn't mean that much in the grand ,gheme of things." Wide receiver Percy Harvin said it's the talks with fellow wideouts that help him deal with it all. That doesn't mean, however, that they ever pictured themselves dropping three of four. "We never thought we would be in this situation right now," Harvin said.

Estopinan out for season with ACL tear 0 TIM TEBOW IS STILL BOTHERED BY A SHOULDER CONTUSION. By NICK ZACCARDI Alligator Staff Writer nzaccardi@alligator.org The UF defensive line took a major hit Monday, as Coach Urban Meyer said starting tackle Javier Estopinan and backup Brandon Antwine are out for the season. Another tackle, redshirt freshman Terron Sanders, is out indefinitely with a left highankle sprain. MNBA: Portland at San Antonio TNT, 8 p.m. ENBA: Houston at LA Lakers TNT, 10:30 p.m. Estopinan, a junior starter alongside Clint McMillan in the middle, suffered his third ACL injury in the last three years against Georgia on Saturday. Meyer spent part of his Sunday with Estopinan and his faiy. "There's not a tougher Football guy, not a better guy," Meyer said. Antwine's news comes as less of a shock, as he spent 10 days in the hospital earlier this month with muscular back problems. The loss of Estopinan and Antwine, two of the Gators' top three tackles, leaves a huge U 1993: Running back Errict Rhett carries a UF-record 41 times in a 33-26 victory against Georgia. Rhett rushed for 183 yards in the game. hole opposite McMillan. TEBOW'S HEALTH STILL IN QUESTION: With no Georgia defenders around, the only thing Tim Tebow had to protect his bruised right shoulder from on Monday was the weather. He left UF's practice field bundled up under a red no-contact jersey protected by a long-sleeve undershirt as the nighttime temperature dipped into the low 60s. Tebow needs to take every precaution to keep his non-throwing shoulder safe. SEE NOTES, PAGE IS "She'll have a lot of enthusiasm. I can guarantee you that. I think Coach Meyer definitely married up.' UF quarterback Tim Tebow, on how Urban Meyer's wife, Shelley, will perform as host of Gator Growl Looking ahead to intriguing bowl matchups ith the college football world standing on its ear and the Southeastern Conference more tangled than Joakim Noah's hair, there should be some pretty interesting bowl matchups this year. UF seemed headed for the SEC Championship Game and a potential BCS bowl until Saturday's loss to Georgia opened up a world of postseason possibilities. Here are my top-five, no matter how unlikely, bowl pairings for the Gators. Note: technically, the Gators Mike McCall are not eligible McCall-in' It for a bowl game Like I See It yet (they need one more win to mrrccali@aligator.org qualify), but a boy can dream, right? 1. Allstate Sugar Bowl vs. Ohio State How it could happen: UF wins the SEC and Ohio State loses to Michigan to finish No. 2 in the Big Ten, earning an at-large bid. For the Gators to make it to Atlanta, they must defeat Vanderbilt and South Camlina while Tennessee loses to Arkansas, Vanderbilt or Kentucky, and Georgia loses to Auburn or Kentucky. PREDICTION: The Buckeyes come into the game looking for revenge for last year's 41-14 beatdown in the BCS National Championship Game. In a dramatic finish, Ohio State receiver Brian Robiskie makes a catch in the back of the end zone as time expires. Unfortunately for the Buckeyes, they still lose 35-20. 2. Chick-fil-A Bowl vs. Miami How it could happen: UF finishes second, third or fourth overall in the conference, and the Hurricanes win the Atlantic Coast Conference Coastal Division but lose the ACC Championship Game. PREDICTION: The'Canes and Gators square off in a preview of next year's early season matchup.
