leave local jail
By DEVIN CULCLASURE$
Alli gator Writer I
Two UF students arrested at an appearance by former
U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales on Monday night
were released from the Alachua County Jail on Tuesday
Donning orange jumpsuits and black hoods, Richard
Gutierrez and Kevin Hachey climbed on stage about 15
minutes into Gonzales' address at the
Phillips Center for the Performing Arts.
University Police Department officers
then led the students away without a A
struggle and arrested them for disrupt-
ing a public event.
UPD Lt. Stacy Ettel said the stu-
dents were cooperative after police ap-
Gonzales proached them.
"I think there was a point made, and
that point was well-received, at least by those who wanted
to hear it," Ettel said.
After being processed at the UPD station, Gutierrez and
Hachey were taken to the Alachua County Jail, which is
managed by the Alachua County Sheriff's Office. i
The students were booked around 11 p.m. and then
changed into inmate jumpsuits. They were fingerprinted,
photographed and put up in a holding cell.
At 9 a.m. on Tuesday, they appeared before a judge, who Jeremiah Wilson, Alligator
released them without having to post bail because they Within Reach

dents plead or are found guilty.
Students advised to use caution for holiday travel
* THE WEEK'S RISKIEST TRAVEL TIME
IS FROM NOON TO 11 P.M. TODAY.
By HILARY LEHMAN
With 26 student deaths since January, in-
cluding several caused by traffic accidents, law
enforcement officials are advising students to
be careful on the roads this weekend.
Officials said students should take pre-
cautions for their safety, such as wearing
seat belts, reducing driving distractions and
avoiding dangerous traffic situations because
of the extra traffic from Thanksgiving and the

Lt. Mike Burroughs, Florida Highway
Patrol spokesman for the Gainesville area, said
the most dangerous and congested travel time
is from noon to 11 p.m. today.
"For those travelers who are going to be
traveling out of town, if they could delay their
trip to start early Thursday morning, they
would find a much safer trip and much less
congested roadways," he said.
Officer Darin Gentry of the University
Police Department said students should also
avoid waiting until the last minute to return to
Gainesville for the same reasons.
Burroughs said the main interstates are
usually the most dangerous for driving dur-
ing the holiday weekend. However, the busy
shopping weekend and the big football game
make any roads dangerous, he said.
Taking obvious precautions like wearing
seat belts, driving sober and avoiding text
messages and other distractions are essential
to student safety, he said.
Burroughs said adding

Drivers should be especially careful be-
tween 10 p.m. and 3 a.m., which is the most
common time for alcohol-related accidents,
FHP encourages drivers to call the 511 sys-
tem if they are stuck in gridlock on the road.
The system gives live updates on road block-
ages and alternate routes.
Burroughs said with the high number of
law enforcement officers patrolling the road-
ways this weekend, it is important for stu-
dents to be aware of the Move Over Act.
When drivers see an officer on the side of
the road, they need to slow down to 20 mph
below the speed limit on a two-lane road or
move to the lane farther from the roadside if
driving on the interstate.

Be wary of turkey binges
By LANE NIESET
Alligator Contributing Writer
With temptations of pumpkin pie, gin-
gerbread, turkey with gravy and more, it's
easy to make bad decisions when eating
during the holidays.
Students often make poor choices be-
cause they do not know what the right
choices are, said Susan Jeck, a nutrition-
ist and owner of B-Fit Body Boutique in
"Alot of people think that Thanksgiving
means to stuff yourself," she said, "but that
is not a good idea."
Jeck said to focus on vegetables as much
as possible, limit desserts and sugar intake
and be careful to eat items in moderation.

GatorWell, said eating balanced meals
and stopping when feeling full help con-

W ith one day before break,
we have a lot to be
thankful for. But with
Monday's speech, one thing that is
fairly low-key tops my list.
Thank goodness we didn't have
a worse incident at former U.S.
Attorney General Alberto Gonzales'
speech. There were more protesters.
They caused a ruckus. A sense of
impending catastrophe was in the
air. Sound familiar?
Except this time, the ending
was different. No Tasers, no iconic
quotes and no committees on the
lawful use of police force.
Other circumstances made the
officers' handling of the scenario
even more remarkable. The speaker

for trouble was greater given what
he did in office.
It seems the University Police
Department has learned from
its mistakes. The massive outcry
against Tasergate prompted cam-
pus security to rethink how it uses
force to restrain combative people.
Hopefully, UPD will keep its new
mindset in the years to come -
don't blame police for not listening
to angry students.
One of the most common com-
plaints from the Kerry forum was
the way UPD restrained Andrew
Meyer. Many people wondered,
"Why couldn't they just subdue
him and remove him from the
room? They didn't really need to
Taser him." That's precisely what
UPD did when Richard Gutierrez
and Kevin Hachey ascended the

some of the things Gonzales did in

Things to be thankful for at UF this holiday
A h, Thanksgiving. I'm thankful for the
f\ holiday you can't screw up. There's no
L need to fret about finding the perfect
gift for your mom or someone hot to kiss at
midnight. It's socially acceptable to eat so much
pie that you can't get up from the table. Here's
what I'm thankful this year:
1. Billy Donovan's morning-after regret
about getting in bed with the Orlando Magic.
He's atoned for his indiscretion by leading our
mostly freshman team back into the Top 25.
2. The powers that be have officially recog-
nized UF's status as Top Dog. I'm talking about
CollegeHumor.com's No. 2 nod and Playboy
featuring girls from Florida in its "Girls of the
SEC" issue in September. One of the girls lives
near my boyfriend he's definitely grateful.
Leigh Shapiro 3. Prices around
Editorial Notebook campus are still low for
tuition, football tickets,
presidential salaries ...
oops, maybe scratch that last one.
4. Accent. This semester's lineup of notable
speakers, which Accent chairman Steven Blank
called "electrifying," has certainly engaged the
campus in widespread debate. I can only hope
next semester will be as exciting.
5. Gainesville liberals. Through student and
resident activism, more voices than ever are tell-
ing the UF administration how they feel about
issues including police brutality and graduate-
student rights. Some individuals will always
cross the line of decorum, but it's better to err
on the side of more communication than less.
6. Library hours that will be extended even
longer than they were last exam season. Maybe
if we pack Library West during the first two
weeks in December, Student Government could
make a case for keeping some libraries in busi-
ness late at night on a regular basis. If the gym is
open late on certain days, then popular libraries
should be, too.
7. Tim Tebow. Period.
8. The fact that all of my classes are canceled
today. Unlike the few poor souls stuck on cam-
pus reading this, I'm home, feeling guilt-free
about skipping classes, and making and eating
pies. Maybe next year UF will allow all students
to do the same.
Leigh Shapiro is a junior majoring in econom-
ics. She is a member of the editorial board.

dential races are going on both sides of

We're starving. The thought of eating another meal out
of a box, bag or can is enough to make out stomachs turn.
So we're holding out for the gluttonous pleasure that is
epitomized in the Thanksgiving meal.
And the rest of the world wonders why we're such a fat
country. We blame it solely on the pilgrims. But as for our
personal hunger strike, we hope to lose a few pounds from
dehydration and muscle atrophy before we gain three
times of it back from gorging ourselves this weekend. But
as we count down the minutes until our Thanksgiving
feast, we can't seem to get our minds off of food and
we don't know why. So if you're still in town dreaming
of your own dinner, try not to drool on this week's salty-
Darts & Laurels
It's been a short week, but that doesn't mean we don't
have plenty of stuff to praise or complain about. We love
complaining almost as much as we love pie. On that note,
we throw a we-hope-you-find-lumps-in-your-mashed-po-
tatoes DART to the University of Georgia Bulldogs for
ruining the Gators' hopes of ,going to the Southeastern
Conference title game not once, but twice this season.
We're not bitter or anything, but a team that rushed the
endzone after a first-quarter touchdown- because their
coach told them to and laughed on the sideline as it
happened does not have any class and does not deserve
to be a contender for the SEC championship. Hopefully
Tennessee will pull through so we don't have to worry
about seeing 'another display of poor sportsmanship in
Atlanta next weekend.
Up next, we give a now-that's-the-whipped-cream-
on-the-pumpkin-pie LAUREL to UF's No. 2 ranking by
CollegeHumor.com. Thanks to our wealth of cute co-eds
and our giant stadium, among other factors, UF is the sec-
ond-best place to attend college. We're not biased or any-
thing, but we don't think Pennsylvania State University,
the No. 1 college, holds a candle to our fair campus. Come
on. It's much easier to be cute in a miniskirt and a tank top
than in a parka, ski cap, mittens and long underwear.
And now we have a who's-the-bigger-turkey, you-or-
the-one-in-the-oven? DART to Alberto Gonzales, the
former U.S. attorney general who Accent brought to speak
Monday night. We darted him last week for some of his re-
quests to Accent (which the organization denied), but now
we dart him for what he's done. Condoning torture in vio-
lation of the Geneva Conventions and firing nine U.S. at-
torneys for reasons he cannot remember are what most of
the speech's attendees probably wanted to hear him speak
about, but instead he spoke about living the American
Dream. Yeah, we've never heard that one before.
Accent brought Gonzales to stir up controversy, and
that he did. We've got a no-pie-for-you DART for the
protesters who decided to cause enough of a scene to get
themselves arrested by taking to the stage in the middle
of the speech. But not all the protesters were out of line,
so we give them an extra-slice-of-pie LAUREL for being
respectful while making their point.
We love animals, so of course we've got to give a he'd-
pardon-more-turkeys-than-any-president LAUREL to
Jack Hanna, the world-famous zookeeper and wildlife
conservationist. He spoke Tuesday in Gainesville and
recorded an episode of his show "Jack Hanna's Animal
Adventures" at the SFCC Teaching Zoo. Most of us prob-
ably grew up watching Hanna and his menagerie, so it's
an honor that he'd come to Gainesville.
We have to mention this week's football game before
we pass out from a loss of nutrients, so we give a we-hear-
Seminole-tastes-great LAUREL to the great matchup we
anticipate in The Swamp this weekend. We know you
want to watch the game, so stay safe this weekend on the

Japan should stop whaling practices
s you sit down tomorrow to enjoy your turkey dinner,
surrounded by smiling family members and with the
prospect of pie in the not-so-distant future, people in
Japan will be sitting down to a plateful of ... whale.
"But wait," you ask, "aren't whales protected by the
International Whaling Commission, which Japan is a mem-
ber of? And what about the moratorium in the South Pacific
that's been in place since 1963?"
Well, it seems that Japan is more interested in continuing
cultural "traditions" (more on that later) than protecting the
many whale species that inhabit the Earth's oceans.
On Monday, a Japanese fleet set out on the country's
largest whaling expedition ever, hoping to bag nearly 1,000
minke whales, 50 fin whales and, perhaps most horrifying of
all, up to 50 humpback whales.
As the ship embarked, "Popeye the Sailor Man" played
over speakers, and the ship's crew toasted the occasion with
beer. The day before, Japanese officials had encouraged their
fellow countrymen to continue the whale-eating culture, ac-
cording to an article from The Associated Press.
Personal confession time: I am a ceteceaphile, a bona fide
whale lover. The thought of whales being harpooned chokes
me up. Sea World saddens me. "Free Willy" still makes me
cry, as Michael Jackson's "Will You Be There" blasts through
the TV speakers and Jesse's hand reaches for his friend (even
though Willy, as an orca, is not a true whale, but a member of
the dolphin family).
But back to real life and the real-life problem.
The International Whaling Commission bans commercial
whaling, but it allows hunting of whales for scientific pur-
poses. This is the guise Japan is using to justify its massive
hunt. Japan's Fisheries Agency says it wants to study the
whales' reproductive and feeding habits, but just about ev-
eryone has recognized the Japanese plan to sell the whales
for food. Wouldn't it make more sense to study reproductive
and feeding patterns on living whales, which, as a matter of
fact, reproduce and eat?
But hey, that's just my opinion, I'm no scientist. But I'm
also not going to be eating whale any time soon, which
brings us back to Japan's cultural tradition. I recognize the
Japanese have been enjoying whale dishCe for centuries. I
won't argue the ethics of it, but I will
argue with the method. Whales used
to be caught with nets and spears. It
took an entire village worth of men
to haul the catch back to shore. The
whale had to be gutted by hand. It
Jessica Holland was indeed a huge ordeal. There's
firstname.lastname@example.org no doubt this kind of whaling would
have been sustainable and could
shape cultural traditions.
But that's not how it is anymore. I won't disgust you
with too much exposition about how whales are handled
after their slaughter nowadays, but the harpoon and huge
whaling ships have completely changed the shape of whal-
ing and the "tradition" surrounding it. I will say, however,
that the harpoons used in commercial whaling have to be
long enough to penetrate through the whale's layers of blub-
ber. Some harpoons are equipped with bombs on the heads.
Often, the first shot isn't enough to kill the marine mammal.
And you thought getting your flu shot hurt.
Probably the best defense the whales have is the environ-
mental group Greenpeace, which has sent out its protest ship
Esperanza in search of the Japanese ships to try to disrupt
There are no "whale farms" where Japan can raise whales
for consumption like we do with cows and chickens. Since
so many species are slow-moving, it is nearly impossible for
them to defend themselves. Some whales may be heartier
than others, but not many have the tenacity of Moby Dick.
And it's even easier for the Captain Ahabs to track them
down, thanks to sonar technology.
The whales are then brought back to the mainland and
sold off to restaurants and individual customers. Whale meat
is sometimes served in school cafeterias, despite its high lev-
els of mercury unhealthy for growing kids.
Japan should end its whaling practices once and for all.
Whaling populations are only beginning to recover from
pre-commercial whaling levels. Does Japan want to bring the
gentle giants back to the brink of extinction?

Nothing wrong with fishing T-shirts
In Monday's "Fashion" Alligator
Rants, "frat guys who wear Guy Harvey
shirts" were chastised for wearing the art-
ists's apparel simply because "Gainesville
doesn't have any good places to fish for
swordfish." As a longtime supporter of
Mr. Harvey's artwork and marine preser-
vation efforts, I'm a little baffled.
, So, according to this mindset, then, stu-
dents can't wear sneakers if they won't be
using a treadmill? To suggest that wearing
a Guy Harvey shirt in a landlocked area
is a fashion faux pas is ridiculous. Guy
Harvey shirts show captivating marine
Someone's proximity to the ocean
should not affect the wear-ability of Mr.
Harvey's apparel. I say, don't "save your
Guy Harvey shirt" for "dad's boat."
Instead, wear it with pride, "frat guys"
and all students alike.
Protesters an embarrassment to UF
After attending Alberto Gonzales'
speech, I have never been so ashamed
and embarrassed to attend UF. I sim-
ply cannot believe people are so disre-
spectful and rude to someone who has
devoted his life to serving our country.
I really appreciated and enjoyed
what Mr. Gonzales had to say, and he
has been the first speaker Accent has
brought whom I actually wanted to
Also, I think the Alligator used left-
wing bias in Tuesday's article about
Unfortunately, I could only hear
some of the speech due to the com-
motion caused by a group of people
who hate anyone involved in the Bush
While I loathe Sen. John Kerry with
every fiber in my being and thank God
every day for the fact that George Bush
is our president, I would, never have
dreamed of even going to see Sen.
Kerry, and I would never had heckled
him while he was speaking.
Those people should be ashamed of
their actions and how our university
continues to lose credibility due to out-
bursts like this.
Mr. Gonzales took the high road as
always and said, "Our young men and
women fight overseas to preserve this
kind of freedom of speech."
Students owe Gonzales an apology
For the first time since I have been
at UF, I was embarrassed to be a Gator
on Monday night. The treatment of Mr.
Gonzales was completely devoid of class,
professionalism and common decency.
So you don't like the man? Fine.
Protest outside. When someone is giving
a speech, you should not boo him, inter-
rupt every line of the speech or rush the
stage in homemade T-shirts. It speaks of
immaturity, overexaggerated idealism
and, worst of all, bad taste.
Mr. Gonzales' actions while in office
were, at worst, questionable, but he isn't a
monster. Controversy aside, he is a great
American success story and deserved
better than what UF showed him.
On behalf of Gators with common
sense and courtesy, I would like to apolo-
gize to Mr. Gonzales. I only hope the ac-
tions of many members of the crowd do
not give people the wrong impression of
We are, for the most part, good people
who do not treat visitors like pariahs.
Shame on you, UF students. Even if you
don't agree with Mr. Gonzales' politics,
show him some respect. He has earned it,
and Monday night, many of you lost it.

confronting them. The police correctly
avoided interfering with the protesters'
First Amendment rights. UF spokesman
Steve Orlando acknowledged that the
event was an overall success. It was a
more peaceful event the second time
around. This is good news, given Dr.
Jack Kevorkian's speech in the spring,
which was delayed because UF feared
students would follow Meyer's example
in the wake of Sen. John Kerry's forum.
It's much easier to focus on what
happened Tuesday than what did not.
But doing so ignores the lessons learned
from September's incident. Without
Meyer's misbehavior, yesterday might
have been a lot worse.

in critical condition
By APRIL DUDASH
After hearing the news of
Ashley Ann Groves' accident
Monday afternoon, about 100 of
her friends arrived at Shands at
UF and prayed downstairs.
Since then, friends have been
filing in and out of the hospital.
'Groves' family has stayed at her
Groves, a 19-year-old sopho-
more, was listed in critical con-
dition Monday after her scooter
struck a gray Acura TL near
Southwest Second Avenue.

Lt. Will Halvosa said the investi-
gation is ongoing, and toxicology
reports for everyone involved are
No charges have been filed,
but that may change depending
on Groves' condition, Halvosa
A Shands spokeswoman said
Tuesday evening Groves was still
in critical condition.
Carly Sewell, a UF elemen-
tary education freshman, has
been close friends with Groves
since the ninth grade.
Sewell had already gone
home for Thanksgiving but trav-
eled back to Gainesville after
hearing about the accident.
"You never think it's going to
happen to somebody you know,"
Groves' mother was in her
room for a few minutes before
her leg surgery and sang to her,
"She opened her eyes a little
bit for her mom," she said.
Local 22, met Groves
News at church in

"She's like a sister to me,"
When she heard of the acci-
dent, Fake said she was in shock.
Sewell said members of the
UF Fellowship of Christian
Athletes formed prayer groups
at the hospital yesterday and
cooked Groves' parents a meal.
"We just love her, and we're
ready for her to be back to nor-
mal," Sewell said. "It's going to
be a long recovery."
Groves' birthday is on
Saturday. She will be turning 20.
"I really honestly think she's
going to come through this,"
Fake said. "She's a fighter. That's
what all of her friends and every-
one are saying."
Heading home can be difficult
By LINDSAY SMITH
Alligator Contributing Writer
While many students are excited about pack-
ing up to go home and visit their families over
Thanksgiving break, some aren't too happy about
an extended stay at home.
"My family is pretty quirky," said journal-
ism major Elaine Wilson. "My mom's side of the
family is very Irish, and they consume a lot of
When she was younger, Wilson would become
increasingly uncomfortable around her family
during the holidays, but now she's used to it.
"I go home because I want to," she said. "I
wouldn't want to be anywhere else than with my
mom and dad."
But John Scanzoni, a professor of sociology
at UF who specializes in sociology of the family,
said such warm sentiments aren't always the case
around the holiday season.
"It depends how families feel about each oth-
er," he said. "The thing that binds kin together is
obligation it isn't always because they like each
other, much less love one another."
The atmosphere around the holidays can be
"cool but collected, emotionally not warm" for
some families, he said.
"When people get together, they don't say
what's on their minds or in their hearts," Scanzoni
said. But, that's not necessarily a bad thing, he
added. Often, students in college are more liberal
than their parents, who may feel that the "univer-
sity has corrupted" their sons and daughters.
"The key to keeping the peace is common
sense: If you are willing to tolerate stupid com-
ments and superficial conversation, everything
will be all right," Scanzoni said. "You won't be
emotionally hurt, just disappointed. Just say
nothing that matters talk about the weather."
"My family is pretty quirky."
For Caroline Lewis, an English major, argu-
ments with her family occur every time she goes
home for the holidays.
"It's always little squabbles over stupid things,
but it always happens," she said. "We can't even
spend five minutes together before we're fighting
again. Two seconds later, we've made up, but the
pattern just repeats itself."
But despite the "constant bickering about any-
thing and everything," family still comes first for
Lewis, especially for Thanksgiving.
"It's just comfortable being home with people
that you love," she said. "Arguing is half the

More than 400 former UF students

Luckily, all the gamet-and-g6ld action can be caught in
the common room at HarborChase on Saturdays, so Bowden
won't miss a thing.
Actually, he might be just as involved in the game as a TV
viewer as he is now on the sideline.
"My activities assistant is a big Florida State fan, so she leads
them in the Indian War Chant thing with the arm hatchet-chop,
whatever you call that thing," Lerner said.
Without a doubt, all the amenities and services of
HarborChase would suit Bowden just fine, and his wife can
join him in a plush, one bedroom apartment reserved for
There is one last thing though. The home would have to be
able to accommodate Bowden's celebrity status.
"My assistant said (Bowden) would be a real ringleader
around here," Lemer said. "He'd be involved in all of the ac-
tivities and heading them up.
"He'd probably like it here. It's a pretty happening place, I

It's settled then. Bowden to HarborChase.

Not far behind at 64-46 is alligatorSports.org editor Brian,
"Why drive in one lane, when you can use both?" Steele, who
hopes his podcasting skills will one day land him a job at

Lagging in third at 60-50 is Mike "David Garrard may only

fan, roots for North Carolina in basketball. Go figure.
With a record of 59-51 and fulfilling her womanly duties in
a cleanup role is assistant sports editor Jenna "Everytime Dan
Werner scores a basket, an angel gets its wings" Marina, who
decided to learn Spanish when she discovered she would be
headed to Columbia for the South Carolina game.
And in dead-ass last place with a piss-poor record of 56-54
is Nick "Unless they bring 'Prison Break" back, I'll be making
my own writer's strike official" Zaccardi, who, like Marion

Gators' 102-51 win against North Florida on Tuesday.
By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
With Friday's rivalry
matchup against Florida
State looming, the UF men's
basketball team prepared
with a warm-up game
In a lopsided contest from
start to finish, the No. 25
Gators (5-0) crushed North
Florida (1-3) 102-51, breaking
the 100-point mark for the
second time this season.
The Gators dominated all
aspects of the game. UF shot
53 percent from the field and
knocked down 13 3-pointers,
while only allowing two.
UF outrebounded the
Ospreys 48-31 in the contest
Center Marreese Speights
continued his strong early
season play, tallying 20
points and 12 rebounds in
only 16 minutes on the court.
"I was impressed with
Marreese tonight," Coach
Billy Donovan said. "He's
doing the things that we've
asked him to do. I think he's
attacking the glass more,
which is good to see."
Guards Nick Calathes and
Walter Hodge both added 14
Donovan said he's pleased
with his young team so far,
especially when it comes to
their energy in games.
"I still can see a boyish en-
thusiasm with the way they
play the game," Donovan
said. "They're doing the right
things and playing together."
In Friday's upcoming
game, the Gators will face
. their most difficult test yet.
Donovan is fully aware of the
"We know on Friday night
that they're (FSU) going to

ented, the most athletic yet."
"We know on Friday
night that they're (FSU)

whenever the Gators and Seminoles
o at it on the field, they do so on the
recruiting field as well.
"It seems like 46 years ago," said
Aeyer, recalling the atmosphere with

Febow and Percy Harvin. "I had to
walk around with my hands in my
pockets because people started trying
to commit, shake my hand at that mo-
ment. That was a program changer. It

strumental in helping us win a national
When No. 12 UF (8-3, 5-3
Southeastern Conference) squares off
against FSU (7-4, 4-4 Atlantic Coast
Conference) Saturday evening at 5 in
The Swamp, there will be much more
on the line than just in-state bragging
With both teams out of the title hunt
in their conferences, all that's left to
play for is rival supremacy and wager-
ing for the best bowl bid possible. The
recruiting implications also cannot be
"Florida-Florida State, you're prob-
ably going to see the cream of the crop
in the country coming to watch the
game," defensive tackle Clint McMillan
said. "That's the deciding factor for a
lot of guys to come here or there."
While most recruits come to the
game to make a decision, Mike and
Maurkice Pouncey had already told
Meyer they were Gainesville-bound
last fall before 2006's showdown in
Tallahassee. With their minds already
set, the brothers did some recruiting of
their own with some of the still unde-
cided prep stars.
"We had already come to all the
home games for Florida, and that
crowd was so crazy," Maurkice said.
"Then we went to the Florida State
game, and this crowd ain't nothing
like the Gator Nation. We didn't finish
the whole game. ... We left early. Their
crowd doesn't even get into the game
really. It's kind of lazy."
It also helps a team's chances when
it has a Heisman candidate on its ros-
However, in typical Tebow fashion,
the quarterback doesn't put himself
above the team.
"I know that any time I can say
something to them and let them know
that this is the best place in the country
to come, I'm going to do that," Tebow
For some, quick playing time can
supersede the rivalry as a deciding fac-
tor in choosing between the schools.
"I thought about it, but after some of
the stuff they told me, they got thrown
out the window as soon as they left the
house," UF senior Andre Caldwell said
of FSU. "(They told me) 'You probably
won't be playing 'till your third year
here.' I was pretty much done after I
Once a recruit decides to commit

"We don't like them," Caldwell
said of the Seminoles. "We hate them.
It don't matter if we're both 10-0 right
now. It's still going to be a heated
battle, and we're still going to hate each
other after the game."

As the new-look Gators make their debut in the
heated rivalry, the young group will face an FSU
team-filled with new faces of its own. Gone from

rent Los Angeles Clippers player, Al Thornton.

Calathes lost to Cleveland State and South
Florida so far.
"It's an all-new rivalry," Calathes said. "It's

another game at this point."
Calathes said the matchup will be another test
for the young team, which he said is improving by
"We keep getting better, but we need to keep
playing together, keep doing the little things that
help us win," he said. "We know that every game
could be an upset with the way things are going in

WR has lasting impact at UF
By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
A single pair of blue and silver Nike
shoes lie untouched in the comer of a
bonus room on the second story of a
They rest on top of a Gators slot ma-
chine with remains of dirt and turf still
stuck in the cleats.
They belong to UF wide receiver
Andre Caldwell, who wore the shoes
in the 2003 Army All-American Bowl,
playing for the East team with future
Gators teammate Chris Leak.
Caldwell is nearly five years re-
moved from the game, but the phrases
he etched in permanent marker on the
shoes still hold true for the senior.
The right shoe reads "#1 AC The
Truth" on the outer side, and "Bubba"
on the inside. On the left shoe, #1
Untouchable" spreads across the outer
side while "AC The Truth" is featured
on the inside.
"I feel like I'm untouchable when
I'm on the field," Caldwell said
"Nobody can stop me. And I wrote
"the truth" just cause I'm the real deal
out there. Ain't no jokes or no gim-
micks. It's all business. This is what I
was born to do."
Bubba is bqrn
His birth certificate reads Andre
Jerome Caldwell, but thanks to lis
older brother, Reche, he will forever be
known as "Bubba."
her younger son was on the rotund
side until he turned 7.
Reche thought the name Bubba jut-
seemed to fit the persona of a chubby
child, so it stuck.
The notion that Caldwell would
enjoy a life rooted in sports seemed a-1

He ran track and played both basket-
ball and baseball growing up before he

His talent and skill didn't remain a
secret for long.

er every day in high school, and at the

rounding Caldwell began to swell.

"I always knew he was good, but
I never knew he would be as big as he
was," Medina said. "Bubba handled it
real well. He wanted to be like a regular
kid. He didn't take it to the head like
When recruiters visited his home,
they always peeked at the trophy room
that now hosts Caldwell's shoes. At the
time, the room was filled with Reche's
accolades from his career at UF.
When Florida State coach Bobby
Bowden, and USC coach Pete Carroll
took one look at the Gator-filled room,
the same question inevitably popped
"They'd say, 'Miss Deborah, do .
we really have a chance?'" Caldwell's
Turns out they didn't, as the No. 1
receiver in the nation declared on ESPN
that he was headed to Gainesville.
Despite his early success in high
school, Caldwell remained a dreamer.
He created a list of goals his fresh-
man season and still adds to it every
year. After his 13-reception perfor-
mance against Florida Atlantic last
week, he can cross off UF's all-time re- f jr
ception leader, but a 1,000-yard season
and the Heisman Trophy still remain
"The dreams I write down are hard i .. "
to reach," Caldwell said. "I try to break

Tragedy and Triumph
For as much as Caldwell is respon-
sible for lifting his teammates' spirits,
he's had to work just as hard at keeping
his own intact.
His first test came during the
Gators' home victory against Tennessee

in 2005. Caldwell started out strong,
scoring UF's only touchdown on an
18-yard run in the first quarter.
Then came the start of the second
half, when he received the kickoff on
the goal line and returned it 21 yards
before Tennessee linebacker Ryan
Karl's helmet crashed into his right
thigh. The devastating hit shattered
Caldwell's femur and ended his junior

"I didn't want to see Andre like

and Andre. When I went in the there I
was hugging him. He was really quiet.
I said, 'You're going to overcome it.' He
was like, 'yeah, yeah, yeah.'"
But the hit broke Caldwell's heart
and will just as it had broken his bone.
"He withdrew himself from really
the program, from the football team,"
UF wide receivers coach Billy Gonzales
said. He lost about 20 pounds. He
looked like he was sick.
"He was part of a team. He was a
major player in the program, and next
thing you know, they're telling (him),
you might not ever play again."
Caldwell did everything the doctors
instructed him to do and entered the
2006 season with high expectations.
However, when he finally took the
field, he looked tentative, and Caldwell
said it wasn't until UF's 21-14 win
against Georgia on Oct. 28 that he re-
ally felt comfortable again.
He caught eight passes for a season-
high 88 yards and one touchdown in
the game. Prior, Caldwell had aver-
aged just three receptions for 30 yards
"I hadn't been hit in like a year,"'
Caldwell said. "It took a couple games
for me to get used to people diving at
my leg, trying to take them out. Going
into that game I was very confident."
Caldwell finished the season as UF's
second-leading receiver and ended it
with fireworks, scoring a touchdown in
the national championship game.
Many expected him to follow the
exodus of players who decided to enter
the NFL Draft early. Caldwell was pro-
jected to go in the third round, but that
just wouldn't satisfy him. So, after seek-
ing advice from Reche, who currently
plays for the Washington Redskins,'
Caldwell decided to return for one
more year of college football.
"The plan was coming out of high
school, do three years and get out of
this place," Caldwell said. "After being
here for all these years, it's like my sec-
ond home, and it's all I know right now.
I'm happy with the decision."
The Gators were happy to have him
back. With only 14 seniors returning,
Caldwell has played a crucial role as a,
major leader on the team.
Although he usually took a backseat
to vocal leaders like Dallas Baker and
Jemalle Cornelius, Caldwell knew it
was time to embrace his role.
At a team gathering at UF coach
Urban Meyer's home two weeks be-
fore this season started, he gave an un-
expected speech at Meyer's request.
"Bubba's not really one to be all that
vocal," linebacker Dustin Doe said.
"But when he gave that testimony, it
was kind of like he was free-styling ...
and by him doing that everybody was
on the same page. He was being real,
but he was being poetic at the same
Caldwell asked for every one of his
teammates to jump on the bus with
him for his last year as a Gator.
"He's going to give everything he
has, and he wanted us to give every-
thing we had," Murphy said. "He's a
good leader, and we don't want to let
him down because he goes so hard."
Caldwell looked primed to have a
spectacular final season after his per-
formance in the season opener. He tal-
lied three receptions for 103 yards.

But then it happened again -
Caldwell sprained his knee in the sec-
ond game of the season against Troy.
When his family first saw him go
down, they held their breath fearing
the worst but exhaled when they saw
Caldwell walk off the field.
His parents returned to their home
relatively confident their son would be
fine. Then, the phone rang on Sunday.
"When we talked to Coach Gonzales
and Coach Meyer, you would have
thought they were going to a funeral,"
He missed two weeks with the inju-
ry, started against Auburn but didn't
record a reception and caught one
pass during the LSU game the week
after. Still, he was determined to finish
the year stronger than ever.
"I planned to have a great year, and
to go down so early in the year, it was
devastating," Caldwell said. "But like
I told my momma, it's like a blessing
in disguise. It made me realize, when
I come back I got to be hungry and
sacrifice whatever I can to get better
everyday. And I'm doing that."
The past three games Caldwell has
churned out consecutive career-high
performances. He recorded more
than 100 yards each game and logged
his best game to date against Florida
Atlantic with 13 receptions for 164
For his last game in The Swamp,
Caldwell already has his perfect end-
ing planned out. It would include a
150-yard game topped off with his
final catch in the end zone, so he could
throw the ball into the orange and blue
crowd and really be remembered.
Whatever the outcome, Caldwell
will undoubtedly be remembered by
his teammates for the impact he has
had on their lives.
"That's a man that's willing to put
forth his career for this football team,
and that's all that's ever mattered to
him," Gonzales said. "So to see these
records come up tight here, right now
within his reach, it's fantastic for him.
But at the same time, he'd trade every-
thing in to continue to be a great leader
and a great role model for these young
3, KICKOFF, ALLIGATOR S WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 21,2007
F RUN vs. FSU RUN DEFENSE
F rushes for 190.3 yards per game; FLORIDA STATE allows 99.5 yards per game.
EY PLAYERS: UF: So. QB Tim Tebow (181 attempts 749 yards, 4.1 avg, 20 TDs), So. WR Percy Harvin (54 att 442 yds, 8.2 avg, 4 TDs); FSU: Jr. LB Geno Hayes (71 tackles, 17.5 TFL), Jr. LB Derek Nicholson (81 tackles, 6 TFL).
NALYSIS: Tebow got stuffed by Florida Atlantic that's right, Florida Atlantic. Cameron Newton and Markus Manson actually had UF's two longest runs against the Owls. Running back Kestahn Moore continues to successfully walk the
ght rope for his starting job, rushing for two scores last week with Brandon James suspended. Harvin's return adds that tricky third element to the Gators' usually potent running attack.
LIF PASS vs. FSU PASS DEFENSE
UF passes for 264.5 yards per game; FLORIDA STATE allows 233.6 yards per game.
KEY PLAYERS: UF: So. QB Tim Tebow (2,870 yds, 26 TDs-6 INTs, 68.5 pct, 177.47 rating), Sr. WR Andre Caldwell (48 rec, 665 yds, 13.9 avg, 4 TDs), So. WR Percy Harvin (45 rec, 714 yds, 15.9 avg, 3 TDs); FSU: So. SS Myron Rolle
(54 tackles, 2 FR), So. CB Patrick Robinson (27 tackles, 6 INTs).
ANALYSIS: For the first time in weeks, UF may have its entire group of wide receivers healthy. Harvin (sinus infection) and Riley Cooper (broken finger) have been hampered recently, while Caldwell (sprained MCL) and Cornelius Ingram
(sprained ankle) overcame their injuries and posted solid numbers against Florida Atlantic. FSU has some great playmakers in its secondary In Rolle and Robinson and great experience in junior corner Tony Carter and senior free safety
Roger Williams. This will be a matchup to savor all day.
FSU RUN vs. UF RUN DEFENSE
FLORIDA STATE runs for 123.3 yards per game; UF allows 99.4 yards per game.
KEY PLAYERS: FSU: Jr. TB Antone Smith (171 att 657 yds, 3.8 avg, 3 TDs), So. WR Preston Parker (38 att 221 yds, 5.8 avg, 2 TDs); UF: So. LB Brandon Spikes (108 tackles, 11 TFL), So. LB Dustin Doe (72 tackles, 2 FR).
ANALYSIS: Smith missed last week's win against Maryland with a bruised shoulder, and his top two backups sat out, too. That left the do-everything sophomore Parker to switch from wide receiver to running back. Parker transitioned
smoothly, running for 133 yards. His performance has some in Tallahassee calling for a permanent switch, as Smith has been unimpressive and prone to injury this year. Smith should return this week, but it's anybody's guess as to how
many carries Parker will steal from him. Spikes ranks second in the Southeastern Conference in tackles five behind Kentucky linebacker Wesley Woodyard and seems destined to be a first-team All-SEC pick.
FSU PASS vs. UF PASS DEFENSE
FLORIDA STATE passes for 243.5 yards per game; UF allows 254.5 yards per game.
KEY PLAYERS: FSU: Jr. QB Drew Weatherford (1,585 yds, 8 TDs-1 INT,.59.7 pct, 127.27 rating), Jr. WR Greg Carr (38 rec, 688 yds, 18.1 avg, 3 TDs), Sr. WR De'Cody Fagg (44 rec, 657 yds, 14.9 avg, 5 TDs), So. WR Preston Parker (48
rec, 631 yds, 13.1 avg, 3 TDs); UF: Jr. DE Derrick Harvey (40 tackles, 6.5 sacks), Sr. SS Tony Joiner (53 tackles, 2 INTs).
ANALYSIS: Bobby Bowden has borrowed from Steve Spurrier, using a quarterback carousel the last few years. Right now, Weatherford is slotted ahead of Xavier Lee and Christian Ponder. Weatherford hasn't been half bad recently,
knocking off undefeated Boston College and beating Maryland in November. His group of receivers has the talent to rival UF's playmakers and beat the Gators' battered secondary, especially If Joe Haden sits out with a sprained ankle.
KEY PLAYERS: UF: Jr. Kicker Joey Ijjas (9-12 FGs, long 43), Fr. Punter Chas Henry (32 punts, 38.9 avg, long 53); FSU: Sr. Kicker Gary Cismesia (23-29 FGs, long 50),
Jr. Punter Graham Gano (52 punts, 42.8 avg, long 64).
ANALYSIS: Cismesia and Gano are solid and experienced kickers, unlike Ijjas and Henry. UF missed Brandon James last week Jarred Fayson looked indecisive
Ray Garvin, ranks outside of the top 10D in Division-IA for average yards per return with 20.2 H I
This is one of the dullest UF-FSU matchups in recent memory. The teams aren't playing to warm up for conference title games or to see who goes to the Sugar Bowl
or Orange Bowl. Instead, FSU is looking at the possibility of a return trip to the Emerald Bowl, or, better yet, the Music City Bowl. UF has it a bit better off with the
Capital One and Outback bowls on the horizon, but it's still not satisfying. This game will be all about who is more motivated. The last time FSU entered The Swamp, a rn
Urban Meyer wiped the floor with Bowden in a 34-7 drubbing. The spoils of the win included a grab bag of recruiting commitments, including Payson and James. The n -
Gators only have 10 commitments so far this year versus 19 for the Seminoles. Maybe that's an omen. p
