Buses to use biodiesel
By ILEANA MORALES
Regional Transit System buses will be
getting a makeover next fall, but UF stu-
dents won't be able to tell just by looking.
The buses will run on biodiesel fuel,
which UF will help fund by increasing
students' Transportation Access Fee by
61 cents to $6.10 per credit hour, Student
Body Treasurer E.J. Walicki said.
Walicki said the fee, which is paid on
top of tuition by UF students, will par-
tially cover costs for converting the buses
to run on biodiesel fuel.
About 10 cents out of the $6.10 will
provide $150,000 to power the fuel switch,

RTS will cover the rest of the costs for
converting the buses, he said. The fee will
be implemented in the fall for the 2008-
2009 academic year.
Walicki said converting the buses to
run on biodiesel would increase fuel ef-
ficiency and decrease air pollution from

Student's life celebrated
By KATIE GALLAGHER
After the death of her sorority sister and
friend Pamela Eve Frank, Jackie Weiner wrote
her a letter.
She read it aloud Wednesday night at a
standing-room-only memorial service for
Frank, a UF sophomore who died in a car crash
"I only completely broke down once, when
I was walking down 34th Street and saw a spot
where the sisters were painting your name on
the wall in big white letters," she read.
Not long before, she said, she had been walk-
ing home down the same street with Frank,
complaining about her painful high heels and
feeling stupid for not calling a cab.
"I know now that God wanted us to spend
that time together," she said.
The memorial, organized by the sisters of
Alpha Epsilon Phi Sorority, known as AEPhi,
included tributes from friends, family, soror-
ity sisters, -rabbis and university officials. Most
spoke about Frank's happy disposition and
"Every time we were together, it turned into
an adventure, leaving me with memories and
scars I'll have forever," said Ali Nyman, Frank's
"little sister" in AEPhi.
Jamie Silverstein, a former AEPhi president
who coordinated the memorial, said Frank's
parents, who drove up from Coral Springs, had
a lot of input in the service.
"1 know now that God wanted us to
spend that time together."
Frank's friend and sorority sister
"It's pretty emotional," Silverstein said.
."Everyone's been pretty cooperative."
She said she had not known Frank well since
they were two years apart, but she had been in a
pledge class with her older sister Suzanne, who
was also at the service.
Frank's parents, Lawrence and Nancy Frank,
asked for the poem "We Wait T6o Long" and a
prayer to be read at the service. They also
brought a video one of Frank's friends from
home had made for her funeral.
AEPhi President Erinn Kellner said a bus of
Frank's sorority sisters had traveled to Coral
Springs to attend the funeral Nov. 7.
The memorial also included a slide show of
pictures collected by AEPhi senior Amy.Becker.

'Squad' wins contest
By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Contributing Writer
As smiles exploded on the Bomb
Squad's faces, team member Gus
Moran couldn't contain himself.
"Everything in my body dropped
to the floor when I heard our name,"
the SFCC freshman said.
In the final moments, Moran's
team beat the Intellects to win SFCC's
"The Interns" competition.
The winners, who include Moran
and his teammates Jen Silver, Chris
Ellis and Naomi Prioleau, were an-
nounced at Wednesday night's dos-
"We were squeezing our hands,
and Naomi almost ripped my hand
off," Moran said.
Each member of the winning team
will receive a 12-credit scholarship to
SFCC and a spring internship with a
local business partner.
The competition started last month
with five teams of 20 SFCC students
who were studying health, journal-
ism, building construction and social
Each week, the teams completed
a different task developed by one of
four internship hosts in each of the
At the end of each week, the local
business in charge of the task elimi-
nated one team.
The final task was to raise money
for veterans' issues by running a re-
freshment stand at Sunday's Bikers
on Parade event.
In addition to fundraising, the
Intellects formed a business proposal
for a thrift store benefiting veterans,
and the Bomb Squad updated the
VETSPACE Web site.
The office of state Sen. Steve
Oelrich, a Republican whose district
includes all of Alachua County, was in
charge of the final task.
"You're light-years ahead of me
when I was in community college ...
as far as involvement," Oelrich said to
all the contestants.
Santa Fe Tonya Shays,
Community Oelrich's legisla-
College tive assistant, an-
nounced the win-
"To be honest, when it came to
tasks, they were virtually dead even,"
Shays said after the announcement.
But there were a few errors in
the Intellects' business plan, and the
Bomb Squad raised more money, she
Twenty minutes after the winning
team was announced, former con-
testants congratulated Bomb Squad
members, who were still smiling.
Clutching his trophy, Moran said
he knew they would win.
"That first week, we stayed out in
the rain for 12 hours working on the
task," he said.

good for Gainesville
We've all heard of the french-fry automobiles that
drive across the country, powered only by grease
and oil from fast-food restaurants.
Well, Gainesville's Regional Transit System buses will
soon do essentially the same thing, but on a much bigger
RTS is converting its fleet to run on biodiesel fuels by next
Biodiesel fuel can be produced domestically. With wars in
the Middle East showing no signs of flagging and the price of
a barrel of crude oil rapidly approaching $100, biodiesel pro-
vides a very real solution to some of our energy problems.
Since biodiesel is vegetable oil-based, it is biodegradable
and nontoxic it is 10 times less toxic than, surprisingly,
ordinary table salt. Biodiesel fuel emits almost no sulfur and
emits about half the amount of carbon monoxide, according
A study by the U.S. Departments of Energy and
Agriculture in 1998 found that biodiesel emitted 78 percent
less net carbon dioxide than traditional petroleum diesel.
And then there's the fact that we'll inhale less cancer-
causing exhaust and stinky fumes.
With less pollution, what's not to love?
The only drawback is that it could be more expensive. UF
students are facing a 10-cents-per-credit-hour Transportation
Access Fee increase to help pay for the new fuel. RTS is pay-
ing to convert the buses, but UF will provide $150,000 to help
make the switch. And then there's the fact that biodiesel usu-
ally costs a few cents more per gallon than petroleum diesel.
But it's well worth it.
It's worth it to help make our city greener. UF can inspire
more cities, especially college towns, to transition to biofuels.
Hopefully one day very soon, all the buses and trucks on the
roads will be fueled with biodiesel.

he other day, Gov. Charlie Crist rubbed his magic
funding bottle and a little legislative genie I opped out
and granted him one wish. Unfortunately, Charlie ex-
changed his other two wishes for visits to a tanning salon.
And what did Charlie wish for? How about increased
funding for schools?
A way to prevent budget cuts to public safety programs?
Not a chance.
Actually, Crist wished for what any patriotic governor
would want: an improved venue for America's favorite
Though a little legislative, Dick Cheney-like genie would
be fun to imagine, Crist doesn't have a magic-funding bottle.
Though if he did, I'm sure it would be bronzed, like every-
thing else in his life.
But Crist said Wednesday the state should find room in its
budget-constrained heart to help the Tampa Bay Rays build a
new stadium in St. Petersburg.
Florida voted Crist into office and gave him the keys to its
money-deprived castle, and look what he does. He pledged
to use its beautiful, albeit cheap, castle to watch a baseball
team a horrible one at that.
Instead of putting what little money we have toward
programs truly in need, Crist decided a priority of the state
should be to figure out how to contribute money to the Rays'
$450-million proposal to build a new waterfront, open-air,
With a budget shortfall of $1.5 billion next year, accord-
ing to the St. Petersburg Times, the state would have to cut
programs involving public education and human services in
order to build the stadium.
Obviously our public universities are no match for a base-
ball team with one of the worst records in the major league.
"I think the opportunity to create an ambiance right on
the waterfront in St. Petersburg is brilliant, I really do," Crist
So, if we really look at the core of
this issue, Crist potentially wants to
l throw away millions of dollars for
"ambiance." But not just any ambi-
ance. Only the type of ambiance
waterfront property can offer.
Stephanie I finally understand why Crist
Rosenberg was so hesitant to help UF with its
firstname.lastname@example.org money problems our university
doesn't have waterfront potential!
Oh, man. If I only knew that be-
forehand, I would have never attended this university. We're
at least an hour and a half away from the beach. The Swamp
doesn't hold a candle to Tampa Bay. All our educational
achievements mean nothing.
Crist, who once worked for Major League Baseball in the
minor league office, was so eager to support this measure
that he flew to New York earlier this year to state his pledge
to baseball officials. Maybe if we offered him free tickets to
every sporting event at UF, he would take that sort of ini-
tiative to show support for us. But that two-hour drive to
Gainesville from Tallahassee must be a killer.
Is baseball really not the same if it's not on the waterfront?
Is it really that much more important than education and
public programs? I don't get it must be a Seminole thing.
* Yes, a stadium would create jobs. Sure, a stadium would
be good for the economy. But such a measure comes at too
great a price. We should not have to sacrifice our educational
opportunities and human services essentially because our
governor loves baseball.
You want waterfront ambiance combined with your
favorite sport, Crist? Go to a Fantasy Baseball camp on the
Until then, let's educate our population so people can get

Letter to "-
Gonzales' actions do not warrant speech at UF
In my fourth year as a UF student, I am insulted
and ashamed my Activity & Service Fee is helping
pay for Alberto Gonzales' legal bills as he faces
impending criminal prosecution.
While Gonzales held the highest law-enforce-
ment position in the country, his "accomplish-
ments" highlight corruption in the highest levels of
government: complete disregard for international -
law standards, secret memos authorizing tortui
and the harshest interrogation techniques ev
used by the CIA, illegal spying on United Statk 3
citizens, and alleged perjury before Congress.
It is not only a matter of personal opinion that
he committed morally offensive acts with no ap-
parent regret. His actions were simply ill_ gal. He
is coming here to promote his behavior, and UF
is doing the promoting. Free speech is one thing,
but this speech is not free $40,000 is a lot of
money for someone who has absolutely nothing to
offer and who has damaged the American image
throughout the world.
Besides, anyone interested in Gonzales had
ample opportunity to hear him speak during his
many testimonies recently before Congress.
Andrew Meyer challenges you to vote
Is this the generation of the
enlightened arid the inspired, the
YouTube generation with unlimited
knowledge at our fingertips? I say
to you, my copatriots, rise up and
take the power back.
America should be governed by
the people, not the pocketbook or
the pundits on TV. The corporations
are tricking the masses with the
candidates they feed you through
the boob tube. Abandon apathy.
Educate yourselves before it is too
late, before another Bush can take
I challenge you.
There is a student group on cam-
pus trying to bring a presidential
candidate to speak. This man almost
always has supporters on campus,
and his radically different message
has been ignored by the media.
With that willingness and need
to come here, Accent should find
a way to bring Ron Paul and any
other available presidential candi-
dates to campus. They would speak
free of charge and are still politically
relevant, unlike Alberto Gonzales,
who is incon-

I have been registering people
to vote on campus for days now.
Registering to vote is the easiest
thing in the world to do. You fill out
a form that would take the drunkest
of Florida State University fans few-
er than five minutes to finish. Yet
many students have demonstrated
they have no time to register or that
it is somehow beneath them.
I challenge you.
I challenge you to remove your-
self from your Facebook world for
five minutes. I challenge you to see
the effects American politics and
government have on the real world

The presidential primary in
Florida with early voting begins
Jan. 14. The deadline to register to
vote in this election is Dec. 31.
I challenge you to see through
the nonsense, through the corporate
lies and the opinions of .the unin-
formed. I challenge you to stand
up for the values America was built
-on: freedom from government and
liberty for all.
I challenge you to vote.
Democracy is an active process,
which is only truly alive when citi-

Pets of homeless find friend in vet
By JENNIFER BINGAMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer
Crow Wilds named his squirrels after Nordic warriors.
Freyer and Freha, Wilds'male and female pets, sat atop
33-year-old Wilds' shoulder as he waited outside the free
veterinary clinic at St. Francis House on Nov. 7.
The clinic is the work of Dr. Dale Kaplan-Stein, a
Gainesville veterinarian who gives free veterinary care to .
animals owned by local homeless people.
"It's all about paying it forward," Kaplan-Stein said. 4
The veterinarian and her small team of about four people
cram into a small room at the back of St. Francis House ev-
ery Wednesday for two hours as they diagnose and treat
pets of the homeless.
Kaplan-Stein was inspired to start her clinic after many
people in New Orleans were forced to leave their animals
behind while evacuating the city.
"I would have never left my animals," she said.
The people who seek Kaplan-Stein's services often can't
afford medical assistance for themselves, but they usually .
walk away with bags of dog food and some of the best vet-
erinary medicine money can provide.
The veterinarian doles out medications for doggy ail-
ments such as heartworm and arthritis.
"You gotta work with the obvious," Kaplan-Stein said.
Kaplan-Stein said she continues working with the home-
less even though she knows some people don't believe the
homeless should own pets.
"Whether anyone agrees or doesn't agree," she said,
"they are going to be there anyway."
A majority of Kaplan-Stein's patients are stricken with
contagious but curable diseases. She said she believes that
by helping the animals, she can provide a better quality of
life for their owners, as well.
Dennis Schultz, 27, brought in Tiger, his 7-month-old
pitbull and boxer mixbreed. N.
Tiger lay calmly on the cool tile floor at Schultz's feet as
they waited to see Kaplan-Stein.
Tiger is "good inside, but if you get him outside, he's a
wild child," Schultz said.
The orange-and-black dog was brought in for a routine
check-up, but Kaplan-Stein wanted to see the dog again in
December so he could be neutered.
She said she tries to convince everyone she sees to fix
their pet because it decreases an already overwhelming
homeless pet population in Gainesville.
She sent Schultz and Tiger off with two bags of dog Charles Roop / Alligator Staff

Bicycle trip to Gainesville created to promote safety
By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Although UF will clash with Florida
State University on the football field Nov.
24, police officers from both universities are
working on a new campaign to discourage
drunken driving and alcohol abuse during
Two police officers from the FSU Police
Department will make a nearly 150-mile,
12-hour bicycle ride from Tallahassee to
Gainesville on Monday.
Maj. Jim Russell, assistant chief of the FSU
Police Department, will ride his bicycle with
Sgt. Karin Clausen as part of the "Road to
Russell, an avid cyclist, said he and
Clausen volunteered to deliver a message
from FSU Police Chief David Perry to Linda
Stump, chief of UF's Police Department.
"The message will acknowledge the im-
portant alliance that we have with the UPD,"
Russell said. "We expect each other to take
care of each other's people."
Russell said he hopes the ride will encour-
age both FSU and UF fans to drink responsi-
bly and treat each other with courtesy while
discouraging alcohol abuse and drunken
FSU President T.K. Wetherell said he
thinks the bicycle ride is a great idea.
"Hopefully, it will help people be more
responsible, not only in alcohol, but in how
people treat each other during the weekend,"
"I think anything we can do to promote
accountability and improve behavior and co-
operation among the student bodies and fans
is a great idea," he said.
Monday will be the first time the event
will take place, but Russell said the idea "har-
kens back to the old days."
"Messengers from one Army camp would
deliver messages to the other camp on horse-
back, from one commander to another," he
said. "Now we don't have horses, but this
really embraces that symbolism."
"Hopefully, it will help people be
more responsible, not only in
alcohol, but in how people treat
each other during the weekend."
Russell said this procedure inspired the
event. An FSU Police Department patrol
car will follow the cyclists throughout their
ride down U.S. Route 27 and U.S. Route 441,
providing them with food, water and bike
Both Russell and Clausen have previously
bicycled about 200 straight miles in similar
"We know that is going to be extremely dif-
ficult," he said. "But there's a certain amount
of human drama that you can demonstrate
through human suffering on the road."
If the bicycle ride is successful this year,

tinue in future years, with each department
sending police riders during alternating

erating with the UPD despite the universities'

'Smokeout' encourages quitting
* PEOPLE CAN SHOW COM-
MITMENT WITH PLEDGES.
By SARA RUBIN
Alligator Contributing Writer
Although the word "smokeout"
may carry certain conotations, the
UF group Healthy Gators 2010 has
decided to take the word literally.
The group will host the "The
Great Gator Smokeout" today from
11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on the Reitz
Union Colonnade to encourage UF
students, faculty and staff to stop
Healthy Gators 2010 created
the event to localize "The Great
American Smokeout" hosted by
the American Cancer Society, said
Jane Emmeree, a health promotion
specialist for GatorWell.
Chris Machen, chairwoman of
Healthy Gators 2010 and first lady
of UF, will deliver a keynote speech
at 12:15 p.m. UF mascots Albert
and Alberta will also make appear-
ances at the event.
About 200 to 300 people are
expected to stop by during the
day, with about 80 percent being
students, Emmeree said.
Attendees at the event can fill
out pledge cards committing to
quit or help a friend fulfill the com-
mitment no later than Jan. 15.
"For smoking, coming up with
a specific quit date is helpful,"
She said people who create a
plan to quit by picking a specific

pledges, because those habits are
usually not abstained from but
modified, Emmeree said.
Specialists including a nurse
practitioner, a representative from
Alachua County and people from
GatorWell will be available to ad-
dress concerns such as medication
options and behavioral compo-
nents of kicking the habit, she said.
There will. also be informa-
tion about health issues related to
smoking hookah, an increasingly
popular activity, she said.
Based on UF surveys, about
13 percent of UF students have
smoked in the last 30 days.
Among students, graduating
seniors have the greatest desire to
quit since they are focused on en-
tering the workforce and starting a
new phase of life, Emmeree said.
Shanley Frey, a student public
relations intern for Healthy Gators
2010, said a lot of people on cam-
pus are social smokers.
"I feel like people know that
smoking is not healthy, but they
may get wrapped up in the mo-
ment based on their social environ-
ment," she said.
Even though many UF students
may not think smoking is cool,
others might see it as going "along
with drinking and a night out," she
Frey said she hopes smoking
and non-smoking students gain in-
formation to create a tobacco-free
environment on campus.

in advance to be among the first to enter the.
store, no one rushed to pick up a Galant desk
or a Klippan loveseat.
Instead, patrons leisurely strolled through
the store, admiring the model rooms fur-
nished with IKEA products.
Joseph Roth, IKEA spokesman, said he
could not reveal sales numbers, the cost of the
store or the number of visitors on its first day
because of company policy.
But the store had clearly been expecting
quite a few guests. To keep everyone enter-
tained as they waited to get inside, a man
walking on stilts chatted with people, and pop
songs including Europe's "Final Countdown"
blared from speakers set up outside the store.
Michi Kajoh, a 29-year-old Orlando resi-
dent, said she was first exposed to an IKEA
in Philadelphia and used to beg her parents to
go there. She's been waiting for the Orlando
store since she heard about it three years ago.
In the end, did the Orlando store live up to
the hype? Maybe it doesn't really matter.
"I've been in love with this store since I
was a 9-year-old," Kajoh said.

The college will also use money
from the grants and from private

Before the grants, UF only offered
a master's program for students to be-

tract many students because they
didn't want to spend extra time or
money in school after they graduated,
especially when they had jobs waiting
for them beyond school.

Drawing a perfect circle will be the goal for
some UF artists Friday night.
The College of Fine Art's advanced draw-
ing class will compete in the first UF Freehand
Circle-Drawing Throwdown, the newest addi-
tion to this year's Art Bash.
Art Bash is an annual event Pe
put on by the College of Fine hand

community what the students with tt

Lauren Garber Lake, the as- UF sophor
sistant professor coordinating
The free event is from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the
College of Fine Arts complex.
Rooms throughout the college will feature
art from students of all concentrations, includ-
ing graphic design, ceramics, photography,
painting and drawing. Some of the art will be
unfinished to show the process, Lake said.
Nearby, inflatable sculptures, some up to
30 feet tall, made by art students will hover
over the courtyard while art history students
become a "living painting."
Called a "tableau vivant," students in the
Art History Association plan to dress and pose
as the Roman mythological characters from the
painting "La Primavera" by Botticelli.
Patrons will also have a chance to create art.

Unusual goalkeeper strategy pays off for Gators
By KARL HYPPOLITE
'" Alligator Writer
Unlike most coaches, Becky
Burleigh splits time between her
The UF coach has started true
freshman Meghan Berlingo in the
ter n's last eight matches only to
re lao. her with redshirt freshman
I tie Fraine in the second half.
Many would consider this to be
recipe for disaster, but at least the
70 players affected are comfortable
ith the set up.
"I think it's great," Fraine said.
"I'm glad our coaches have faith in
both of us and just aren't worried
with either of us in. So it's great that
they feel like they can switch us in
and out and not lose anything on
Fraine started 10 of the first 11
games for the Gators (16-4-2, 9-2
Southeastern Conference) before a
rib injury caused her to miss three
consecutive starts. Berlingo per-
formed well against Mississippi,
Mississippi State and Auburn, reg-
istering shutouts in all three games.
Fraine never regained her starting
position, but Burleigh contends it's
not an indictment of Fraine's ability.
The veteran coach feels that nei-
ther has separated herself from the
other, and she rewards both with
playing time accordingly.
"We can't ever let up be-
cause we know we've got
to keep our game up."
both have different
Burleigh said. "They're
at different things, and
I think that helps us because it just
plays into what we're doing right
Both Fraine and Berlingo would
like to play the whole game but real-
ize that splitting time is best for the
team. Each is focused on improving,
and they both recognize that they
need each other to do so.
"It helps the team and us,"
Berlingo said. "We can't ever let up
because we know we've got to keep
our game up."
The numbers don't lie, and so
far, the strategy has been a major
success. The Gators have allowed
just two goals since deciding to use
both goalkeepers. Both scores have
come against Fraine. The first came
against Alabama on a free kick, and
the second came Sunday against
Georgia on a penalty kick.
With UF riding high into the
NCAA Tournament, the Gators are
conjuring memories of the 2006 na-
tional champion UF football team's
success with an equally unconven-
tional two quarterback system.
Fraine says she'll accept the
comparison, but under one circum-
"As long as I get to be Tebow."
UF extends home-winning streak
HOOPS, from page 23
with a triple-double, scoring 22 points, grab-
bing eight rebounds and dishing out seven
assists in only 18 minutes.
Parsons said the Gators have the abil-
ity to score from anywhere, and the points
could come from anyone on any night.
"I came to play today," Parsons said. "It
was a lot of fun. ... It's such a team game out
there. I may be the leading scorer, but so
many people did so many things ... tonight.
You can't single out someone."
The undersized Eagles, whose tallest
player is 6 feet 9 inches, had trouble keeping
the Gators off the boards.
UF held the Eagles to just six rebounds in
the first half, and the Gators ended the game
with a 48-22 advantage.
It was a major improvement from
Sunday's performance against Tennessee
Tech, where the Gators were bested 34-31
on the glass.
Sophomore Jonathan Mitchell had his
best game to date, scoring 6 points in a regu-
lar season-high 16 minutes of play.
The Gators had a scare early in the first
half when freshman guard Jai Lucas hit the
floor hard after a flagrant
foul from the Eagles'
J'Mell Walters. Donovan
and a number of UF play-
ers surrounded Lucas as
he lay face down on the
Lucas was able to get
Lucas up on his own and jogged
to the bench before returning to the game
moments later. The Rowdy Reptiles then
heckled Walters throughout the game.
The Gators extended their school-record
home-winning streak to 22 with the victory.
CALL-IN', from page 23
Wednesday, Werner played one of the
best halves of his career.
He finished the first half with five
points, two rebounds and four assists.
But more importantly, he looked confi-
dent. He led off the game with assists
on three of the Gators' first five baskets,
including a no-look dish to Marreese
Speights in the post for a layup.
I know, the Eagles- would prob-
ably have trouble in the UF intramural
league, but it was still impressive.
He brought the O'Connell Center
to its feet with a hard foul on NCCU's
J'Mell Walters, who had been booed in-
cessantly by the crowd after he commit-
ted a flagrant foul on UF guard Jai Lucas
in the first half. None of these seem like
big time plays, but he is starting to show
some fire, and fans have taken notice.
I witnessed the transition as the
chants from the crowd behind me
morphed from "You still shoot better
than Werner," to "Get it to Thunder
Werner's teammates call him "Tight
End Werner" for his lack of speed and
likeness to players at that position in
football, and it fits.
Tight ends are underappreciated for
their versatility in pass and run blocking
as well as receiving. Werner is the same
on the basketball court, and he will be
one of the main reasons for his squad's
success or failure.
So next time Werner misses a three-
pointer (it will happen), don't riddle
him with boos, just watch closer.

N r .. 1 -, THE TWO COMBINED FOR 41 POINTS
IN 38 MINUTES.
By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
It takes a lot to satisfy UF coach Billy
After harshly criticizing sophomore center
'V. Marreese Speights recently, Donovan was fi-
nally pleased with the performance of his big,
man in the Gators' 105-51 thrashing of North
"The last couple of days I know it's seemed
like I haven't been totally thrilled with
Marreese," Donovan said. "I didn't even recog-
nize his points tonight. He didn't play a lot of
minutes tonight, but I think with the minutes he
played he made an impact. He did things out-
side of scoring, which was good to see."
I P From the tipoff, Speights seemed to play with
something to prove.
He shot an outstanding 9 for 10 from the
field, finishing with 19 points and nine rebounds
O, -- nin only 20 minutes of play.
Speights said he was just doing his part to
answer the call.
"I just go out there and play the best I can
play," Speights said. "Coach told me to go out
there and rebound, so I did. I feel pretty good
.. -;about that. It gives me energy to know he wor-
T; ries about me."
-.... The Gators have begun to show their diversi-
V: ty early on. In the past, Donovan has questioned
the existence of a go-to player for this Gators
squad, and it seems the answer may be a simple
one: there is none.
After Nick Calathes and Speights each led the
casey Brooke Lawson / Alligator team in the first and second game respectively,

That's because Werner had more re-
bounds and assists and less fouls while
making his only field goal attempt and
two free throws.
Through the first three games, Werner
is second on the team in rebounding,
third in assists and third in steals.
If you aren't convinced of his impor-
tance, take it from a teammate.

After being sick for more than a week,
wide receiver Percy Harvin's health is not
improving, UF coach Urban Meyer said
"Percy was in the health center," Meyer
said. "They had him hooked up on IVs. He
was not in good shape when I saw him."
Meyer said last week that Harvin was suf-
fering from a sinus infection,
but Wednesday he said mi-
graine headaches are keeping
Harvin off the practice field.
FOotball The wide receiver tried to
return Tuesday with a morning
workout, but his symptoms flared up again.
Harvin missed the Gators' victory against
South Carolina on Saturday, and his status for
this weekend's game against Florida Atlantic
is in serious doubt.
POUNCEY UPDATE: Freshman offensive line-
man Maurkice Pouncey, who suffered a
sprained ankle against South Carolina, was
moving around at practice Wednesday. -
Meyer said there is a decent chance he will be
ready for Saturday.
Redshirt freshman Maurice Hurt, who was
expected to fill in for Pouncey, injured his
shoulder and did not practice Wednesday.
Redshirt freshman Marcus Gilbert could
see extended playing time as a result.

Saturday, backup quarterback Cameron
Newton may see some playing time.
Meyer said Newton has had two consecu-
tive strong weeks of practice.
"He's really come on," Meyer said. "I hope
[he'll play]. We haven't made that decision
yet. We're having that conversation, which is
something we haven't had earlier because he
was injured and he just wasn't developed."
Newton has played in four games so far
this season and has completed 4 of 6 pass at-
tempts for 32 yards.
He has rushed 10 times for 57 yards and

Caldwell nears UF milestone
By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
As Andre Caldwell and
UF wide receivers coach Billy
Gonzales walked downstairs
jusifoutside the team's locker
room Wednesday morning,
Gonzales stopped and pointed
to a picture.
When Caldwell saw where
he was pointing, the senior
wide receiver grinned. It was
former UF wide receiver and
all-time Gators receptions
leader Carlos Alvarez.
After hauling in 30 catches
during his last four games,
Caldwell's career total stands at
164 receptions, just nine short
of passing Alvarez's mark of
172 set in 1971.
"That was a goal of Bubba's
last year," Gonzales said.
"We've had that up on my
dry-erase board in my meeting
room. It's been [there] over a
After spraining his right
knee against Troy on Sept. 8 and
missing two games, Caldwell
has returned to full health. He
has tallied 251 receiving yards
and three touchdowns in the
past two weeks.
"Bubba's had an unbeliev-
able couple weeks," Gonzales
said. "If you come out to prac-
tice and watch Bubba Caldwell
practice on the football field,
everything you see happen
on the game field happens at
practice. Every rep that Bubba
takes at practice, he's trying to
be the best not just at his posi-
tion at Florida, but the best in

going to bring it back
home with me. Just to be
a part.of history, that's a
big mark for me."
UF wide receiver
Caldwell said he tries not
to focus on the record, but if
he does break it, nobody else
should plan on taking home the
"I'm gonna' take it if they
don't let me keep if," Caldwell
said. "Whatever they say, I'm
going to bring it back home
with me. Just to be a part of his-
Senior needs 9 catches
tory, that's a big mark for me."
Coaches have complimented
Caldwell's leadership as a team
captain all season long, but
that praise hasn't come easily.
Coach Urban Meyer said that
Caldwell has changed greatly
since he took the job three sea-
After the first few weeks
of practicing with Caldwell,
Meyer took the wideout into
a film room and showed him
clips of the crisp routes and
practice work ethic of his for-
mer players at Utah.
Meyer's demonstration had
an immediate and positive
impact on Caldwell. His team-
mates have taken note.
"Oh, he wants to break it,"
wide receiver and roommate
Jarred Fayson said. "Bubba just
keeps working, working and
working. I've never seen a guy
work like that."
Caldwell just passed his
brother, Reche's, mark for
career-receiving yards in last
week's win at South Carolina,
but Alvarez's receptions mark
is the big one.
"He's the face of Florida
football in the past as far as
receivers go," Gonzales said of
Alvarez. "Just the name itself
