Slim title hopes alive after Vandy thrashing
UF wide receiver Percy Harvin runs with the ball during the Gators' 49-22 victory against Vanderbilt
on Saturday in The Swamp.
By NICK ZACCARDI

Welcome back, Gators.
UF summoned its early season
dominating attack, an offense-
defense combination not seen in
more than a month, in its return
to The Swamp for Homecoming.
An offense led by Percy Harvin
wowed, and a stout defense playing
with a three-loss chip on its shoul-
der held up as the Gators cruised to
a 49-22 win against Vanderbilt on
After a dizzying October,
November started off in typical UF
"It hasn't been a perfect year,"
Coach Urban Meyer said. "Obviously,
there's been a bunch of bumps in the
road, but to see a team come out like
that after we've had a tough month,

days and play with that energy

together as a team, I was very proud
The win, No. 17 in a row over
Vanderbilt, keeps the Gators alive in

No. 17 UF (6-3, 4-3 SEC) must
win at South Carolina on Saturday

to lose another conference game

yards by halftime
and finished with
Harvin 113 on the ground
and 110 through the air to become the
first player in school history with 100
yards rushing and 100 yards receiv-
ing in one game.
For the first time this season, the
Gators wore all-blue uniforms, an
idea thought up by the seniors as a
way to energize a team that looked
lifeless after a loss to Georgia last
"We kind of threw the kitchen sink
at this team, everything possible to
get this team motivated," Meyer said.

Enola Gay pilot, a UF alum, dies
* HIS PLANE DROPPED A NUCLEAR BOMB
OVER HIROSHIMA, JAPAN.
By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
The UF alumnus who made history by dropping
the atomic bomb over Hiroshima, Japan, during
World War II died Thursday. He was 92.
Paul Warfield Tibbets, a former member of UF's
Army ROTC program and member of UF's chapter of
Sigma Nu Fraternity, died at his home in Columbus,
Ohio. His death followed a two-month struggle with
several health problems.
On Aug. 6, 1945, 30-year-old Tibbets piloted the
Enola Gay, the B-29 bomber plane named for his
mother that dropped the bomb that killed about
100,000 Japanese people.
It was the first time any country used a nuclear
bomb during warfare.
The United States dropped a second bomb over
Nagasaki, Japan, three days later.
The second bomb killed about 40,000 people, and
the Japanese surrendered a few days later. Tibbets
did not fly in that mission.
Throughout his life, Tibbets defended dropping
the bomb, explaining that he saved more lives than
he took because the attack helped end the war.
"I sleep dearly every night," he told The
Associated Press in a 1975 interview.
Tibbets was born Feb. 23,1915, in Quincy, Dl., and
spent most of his childhood in Miami. He majored in
chemistry at UF in the 1930s.
"During his career, he set a tremendous example
of personal courage, honor and duty to one's coun-
try," wrote Stefan Gleason, president of the UF Sigma
Nu Fraternity's alumni board, in an e-mail. "He was
much admired by Sigma Nus everywhere."
Tibbets attended the University of Cincinnati's
medical school but withdrew in 1937 to enlist in the
Army Air Corps.
Tibbets retired from the Air Force
in 1966 and moved to Columbus. He
N NesM I managed.an air taxi service there un-
News tilhe retired in 1985.
In 1976, Tibbets was criticized for
re-enacting the Hiroshima bombing at a Texas air
As he flew over the show, an explosion on the run-
way created a mushroom cloud. Many Japanese were
offended, and the U.S. formally apologized.
Tibbets wanted his ashes scattered over the
English Channel, where he loved to fly during the
war, he told The Columbus Dispatch in 2005.
He wanted no headstone for fear that it would
give war protesters a place to demonstrate.
Survivors include his wife, Andrea, and his sons,
Paul, Gene and James, in addition to grandchildren

UF finds clue into turtles' 'lost years'
* FINDINGS COULD LEAD TO
MORE EFFECTIVE PROTECTION.
By STEVEN WEINER
For 50 years, scientists have at-
tempted to discover where newly
hatched green sea turtles go before
they reappear as juveniles in the
coastal sea grass.
Now, UF researchers have a major
due to what's been dubbed as the mys-
tery of "the green turtles' lost years."
They say their findings, published
in the online journal "Biology Letters,"
could lead to more effective protection
of these endangered animals.
Kimberly Reich, a doctoral can-
didate in zoology and lead author of
the study, found a clue to the turtles'
whereabouts hidden on the backs of
Analyzing isotopes of nitrogen and
carbon from 44 turtles near the island
of Great Inagua in the Bahamas, Reich
determined that green turtles spend
their formative years living in deep
water oceanic habitats and have a car-
nivorous diet. The turtles dine mostly
on jellyfish and other soft-bodied ma-
rine organisms at that time.
The result was interesting because
green turtles are the only herbivorous
adult sea turtle species, Reich said.
Drawing from previous knowledge
about another turtle species, Reich
estimated that the green turtles go
through "approximately a three-to
five-year oceanic stage" before return-
ing to shallower waters.
The secret to the turtles' lost years
was in their scute, she said.
Scute is the hardened tissue cover-
ing a turtle's bony shell and is made of
keratin, like human fingernails or hair.
Scute retains the chemical signature
of the environment the turtle was liv-
ing in and the turtle's diet.
Although this research has led to
a better understand-
UF ing of the turtles'
Research habitat and diet
during these "lost
years," Reich said
there is still some mystery about their
exact location in the ocean.
"We can't go put our finger on a
map and say, 'This is where they are,'"
Karen Bjorndal, director of UF's
Archie Carr Center for Sea Turtle
Research, hypothesized that the green
turtles' particular swimming depth
and coloration might have kept them
hidden all these years.
Reich said she hopes the discovery
of green turtles in deep waters will add
weight to the argument for putting
more protective measures in place.
All sea turtle species are either
threatened or endangered, and green
turtles are endangered everywhere
they live, Reich said.
She added that the main threats to
the turtles in deep sea waters are hu-
"We know that loggerhead and
leatherback turtles, which are oceanic,
are significantly impacted by long-line
fishing," she said.
"They get hooked by the line, and
Green sea turtles face similar dan-
gers. Discussion has been under way
to develop safer, turtle-friendly hooks,
as well as to regulate the depths hooks
can descend to and the types of baits
Human trash also causes a major
problem for sea turtles.
"If you ingest enough debris, you
have no room for food," Reich said.
"The debris doesn't pass and you
Reich, who began the study six
years ago, said her research directly
links with the work of Archie Carr, the
founder of the UF sea turtle research
Carr began searching for the green
turtles in the 1950s. During all the
years he searched, Reich said Carr
didn't meet one person who ever spot-
ted a baby green turtle.
"There have been thousands and
thousands of hours spent looking for
these turtles," she said. "Thousands of
hours that Archie Carr spent traveling
through the Caribbean and through
South America, talking to fishermen,

Performers showcase Indian culture
* THE PERFORMANCES
By HILARY LEHMAN
As their sequined saris glittered in the
glow of tea lights, dancers celebrated the
Indian festival of lights.
About 200 student performers pre-
sented a showcase of Indian music and
dance in celebration of Diwali on Sunday
night. About 600 people attended the
festival, organized by the Indian Students
Association, at the Phillips Center for the
Diwali celebrates the triumph of good
over evil, said Vasudha Narayanan, the
association's faculty adviser.
Light traditionally represents knowl-
edge, immortality and reality in Indian
culture, qualities which hopefully would
be reflected in the performance, she said.
Participants spent six weeks organiz-
ing and rehearsing for the show, which
consisted of 17 acts, including dancing,
singing and an "East vs. West" fashion
The performances this year mixed
American and Indian culture.
Some students danced to traditional
Indian music. Others danced or sang to
more modem Western beats.
The performances of the national an-
thems also merged American and Indian
Sinthana Umakanthan, an Indian-
American UF junior, performed the

For students of Indian heritage at UF,
the annual Diwali show is an opportunity

For Democrats, Florida's
primary won't matter
lorida has a nasty little habit of screwing up elections.
Even if you weren't old enough to vote (and most UF
students weren't) in 2000, you certainly heard all about
butterfly ballots, hanging chads and Katherine Harris.
Tuesday is technically an election day, but since this is an
off year, don't plan on heading to the polls.
Instead, we've decided to talk about how Florida is
shooting itself in the foot for next year's primary elections.
In March 2006, Florida legislators started talking about mov-
ing the state's Republican and Democratic primaries up to
Jan. 29, 2008. The logic is sound: Give Florida, a huge swing
state with 18 million people and 27 Electoral College votes,
a chance to dictate the direction of the national election. In
contrast, the two states that normally vote first in the prima-
ries, Iowa and New Hampshire, have 11 votes combined.
Yeah, doesn't make much sense to us, either.
The problem the Democratic National Committee has
with a Jan. 29 primary is that it is a week before the DNC
allows votes to be cast. It has said that if Florida voters go to
the polls too early, it won't be able to send any delegates to
the Democratic convention.
Now, Democratic presidential candidates, such as Hillary
Clinton and Barack Obama, are steering clear of Florida,
afraid of forfeiting any delegates won in this state.
Once the implications became clear, Florida Democratic
leaders asked to move the primary to Feb. 5, which the
Democratic committee would accept, but Republicans re-
fused. And in Republican-controlled Tallahassee, that seems
to be the end of the line.
Florida Democrats can't seem to figure out why the com-
mittee is punishing its own party, and neither can we. In
August, the Democratic National Committee's rules com-
mittee decided to strip Florida of all its delegates.
Yet the primary is still going to be held Jan. 29 and
your vote for a presidential candidate, if you are a regis-
tered Democrat, will mean nothing. Instead, the state's
Democratic party is working to raise money for caucuses to
choose delegates for the national convention.
Talk about voter disenfranchisement. Yes, it's under-
standable that the Democratic committee has rules in place,
and yes, Florida broke those rules, but millions of potential
votes would mean nothing, and that's a huge problem. Of
course, since Florida votes have never swung primaries in
the past by much, it's not that much of a change. But that's
beside the point.
More than 20 states will vote on Feb. 5, which has been
dubbed by some as "Super-Duper Tuesday." That's the most
primary elections ever held on one day.
It makes much more sense for Florida to move its election
back a week to join other states, but the bill has been signed.
Now neither side can budge.
Jonathan Soros, in a column in The New York Times last
week, proposed that the nation move toward a national
primary which everyone's vote would count in. He com-
pared it to "American Idol," stating that when everyone
participates equally in the voting, more people will be likely
to vote. While that sounds like a fantastic idea, it's nothing
more than a fantastic fantasy.
For now, all we can ask is for Democrats' votes to mean

Diversity encourages discrimination
Before I write what I have to say, I would
like to state that I am not racist, sexist, classist
or any kind of "ist."
I believe every person should be acknowl-
edged for his or her character and abilities, not
because of any other quality.
However, I believe many of the discrimi-
nation problems on campus stem from our
practices of diversity. I think it's important to
celebrate our differences. But the manner in
which we do it is not the way to go.
We can't embrace diversity by herding ev-
ery class of citizen into a group of people just
like each other.
How are we supposed to celebrate differ-
ences when diversity on campus is promoted
by a heterogeneous student body?
Furthermore, how is our method of di-
versity fair when there isn't a student union,

Reality television not all that bad
I've noticed recent Alligators have had let-
ters concerning reality television, namely the
show "A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila."
Let me say first, I think of myself as a
reasonable person. Hell, I'd even call my-
self a good citizen. But I think the author of
Thursday's letter "People hide from life in
reality television" was a little extreme. Not all
people who watch this and similar shows are
"incompetent fools," as suggested. Sure, it's
trash, and I wouldn't let children watch it. My
parents would probably be disgusted by it.
But it's just television. Television has never
been an outstanding influence on society. Is
someone forcing you to sit down and watch
reality TV instead of getting work done? Can't
you just throw away your television or keep it
tuned to the news to hear the things you want
to hear? Bill O'Reilly is more disturbing to me
than "reality" television. I'm sure some of the
war protesters from Students for a Democratic
Society watch Tila Tequila's show. Does that
make them hypocritical?
If America stops watching reality televi-
sion, will glaciers stop melting? I am con-
cerned with unnecessary war and violence in
the world, especially in Iraq. However, I don't
think it's ridiculous to zone out occasion-
ally and watch some controversial television.
I tend to drink and cheer for the Gators every
weekend, too is that being ignorant?
People need to realize that entertainment
is just entertainment. I'm not about to pull a

uses in its dining operations, are
confined to tiny wire "battery cages"
without the ability to spread their

der of their useful lives in cages with

Consumer demand has also

Festival spreads awareness about Chinese culture

Wearing traditional red Chinese
outfits and holding silk fans, four
UF students performed a customary
fan dance set to modem music as a
celebration of their culture.
The dance was one of the per-
formances at the Mid-Autumn

American Student Association in the
Rion Ballroom on Sunday evening.
About 300 students and family
members came to the free event to

defensive coaches, who were eager to make up for a
dreadful effort in giving up 42 points to the Bulldogs.
The defense did its job by holding Vanderbilt to 32
yards on its first three series, all of which ended in punts.
The offense held up its end too, scoring on its first two
drives and five times total in the first half to take a
daunting 35-7 lead into the break.

"They just took it to us today," Vanderbilt coach
Bobby Johnson said. "They whipped us."
Quarterback Tim Tebow scored four of his five
touchdowns in the first half and looked like a confi-
dent pocket passer. He completed 22-of-27 passes for
281 yards and three scores while running just six times
for 35 yards and two touchdowns as a bruised non-
throwing shoulder kept him immobile.
"We're still a little conservative on it," Tebow said
of running less with the injury to the shoulder, which
required a pre-game cortisone shot for the second

Tebow got help from receivers Harvin and Andre

Gators gain perspective as SEC season nears end
By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Staff Writer
The Gators still need a lot of
help to make it back to Atlanta
for the Southeastern Conference
But after UF's win against
Vanderbilt on Saturday, Coach
Urban Meyer said he is confi-
dent that if his team takes care of
business in its conference finale
against South Carolina, every-
thing will fall into place.
"I think it's going to come
down to that game," Meyer
said. "Our team believes that."
So while Meyer spent most of
the season stressing the impor-
tance of focusing on one game
at a time, he has now decided
to discuss the big picture with
"After we lost to Georgia, you
had to search for anything, espe-
dally dealing with some young
players," Meyer said Sunday
during his weekly teleconfer-
ence. "Now it's the second week
in November, you're competing
for an SEC Championship."
At 4-3 in conference play,
the Gators need to defeat the
Gamecocks and hope for both
Georgia and Tennessee to lose.
After that, things get a little
For example, if UF wins and
both Georgia and Tennessee lose
Saturday, the Gators will then
have to hope for the Volunteers
to win their remaining two
conference games or for the
Bulldogs to lose another game.
"Now it's the second
week in November,
you're competing for an
UF football coach
Meanwhile, the SEC East has
been so wacky this year that,
while a huge long shot, it's still
technically possible for a six-
way tie, with every team in the
division finishing at 4-4.

UF claims conference title
* THE SECOND-STRAIGHT CHAMPION-
SHIP COMES ON A 9-GAME WIN STREAK.
By KARL HYPPOLITE
KeLeigh Hudson kissed the Southeastern
Conference sign she held in her hands.
Coach Becky Burleigh threw her arms into the
Shelley Lyle's 26-member entourage of family
and friends chanted her name.
After a disappointing start to the conference
season, the UF soccer team's aspirations of an SEC
championship seemed doubtful.
But the Gators managed to turn their sea-
son around, and with Sunday's 3-0 shutout of
Vanderbilt after Friday night's 2-0 win against
South Carolina, UF (13-4-2, 9-2 SEC) clinched its
second consecutive SEC title.
The Gators now enter the SEC Tournament on
Wednesday ranked as the No. 1 seed.
A season that was marked by adversity and
frustration became a season of vindication.
"I think this one's really special because of the
circumstances in which we won it," Burleigh said.
"In terms of losing the first two games and having
to battle back each week and being able to keep
the faith that we would still have the chance to
The Gators opened the conference season with
losses to Georgia and Tennessee, opponents who
would spend the entire season atop the SEC stand-
Ironically, it was the Bulldogs' 3-0 victory
against the Volunteers on Friday
night that gave the Gators the
opportunity to claim the confer-
ence title. UF entered Sunday's
match with 24 points (a tally
of wins and ties) in conference
play and trailed Tennessee and
Georgia by one and two points,
A loss would have resulted

All five of the first-year schol-

Of the sophomores however,

and Jonathan Mitchell combined
to shoot 0 for 7 from the field.
When UF hosts Lynn tonight

Coach Billy Donovan will keep a
close eye on his elder players.
Donovan noted that Werner,

When Brandon Siler left the
Gators, Coach Urban Meyer knew
the defense was going to have a
difficult time making up for his
absence. Spikes is slowly but surely
developing into the kind of leader
UF needs at middle linebacker.
He was all over the field Saturday,
Leading the team in tackles with
14. He also tipped a pass, allowing

bit," Meyer said. "Obviously it's still
too early to say that, but he played
one of his better games."
Pierre-Louis also held his own
against the Commodores' receivers,
and he grabbed an interception.
"We've always said that's corre-
lated directly to his practice," Meyer
"He's practiced much better.
Honestly we hoped it happened
faster than it did, but it is starting to
Football Tim Tebow picked
up his 14th rush-
of the season Saturday against
Vanderbilt. The sophomore is now
tied with Emmitt Smith and Buford
Long for the most rushing touch-
downs in a season in UF history.
Tebow also set an SEC single-sea-
son record for most rushing touch-
downs by a quarterback.
UNEXPLAINED ABSENCES: Running
back Chevon Walker and safety
Jamar Hornsby were kept off the
dress list for the second-straight
week against Vanderbilt, and Meyer
said Sunday that might be a trend.
"There's a chance they may leave
(the team)," Meyer said. "There's a
chance they'll be back."
The coach won't reveal why the
redshirt freshmen are not participat-
ing, saying only that the two have
"personal issues" to deal with.

Elliott's score deflated the
Commodores and gave UF a jolt after
a scoreless first half.
"Normally when you get the first
goal, more and more come," Elliott
said. "With this team, it's really obvi-
ous. Sometimes we do have a little bit
of trouble, but this is a game we knew
we wanted to win."
Midfielder Ameera Abdullah
helped continue the momentum,
scoring in the box on a goal assisted
by forwards Stacy Bishop and Megan
Bishop rounded out the scoring
on a free kick in the 74th minute
after Vanderbilt defender Audrey
Nonemaker drew a yellow card.
This weekend's victories extended

For the seniors who at one point
felt a conference title was out of their
reach, UF's current play is the most
fun they've ever experienced.
"Early on we didn't seem to enjoy
ourselves, and now we're enjoying
ourselves," Bishop said. "It makes a
world of difference."
Donovan expects more from forward Mitchell
HOOPS, from page 19
on him. We're going to need him to step up and
play better for us."
Donovan said that Mitchell's problems are
probably mental. The talented forward has
struggled producing in college after arriving at
UF with high expectations.
Donovan said he still expects great things
from Mitchell, whose first-game problems
weren't confined to one aspect of the game.
"I think Jonathan's issues were he not only
didn't make shots, it was some turnovers, it was
defense, it was rebounding," Donovan said.

Calathes, who in his first
outing .fell just two assists
shy of becoming the second
player in school history to re-
cord a triple double, said the
team is energized following
its first win.
Mitchell "I just try to bring my
energy to the court like
I've been doing in practice," Calathes said. "It
showed out there, and we played well as a team.
Let's just hope we can continue doing that."
