Fla. fights metal theft


Law targets copper-wire thieves


By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Staff Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org
It's lightweight, valuable and often right out
in the open.
Increasing copper-wire thefts have caused
Florida legislators to take action.
The wire found in air conditioning units,
construction sites and electrical wiring can
be stripped of its insulation and sold to recy-
cling companies. In Gainesville, the stripped
wire goes for more than $2 a pound.
In Florida, it may soon become more dif-
ficult to resell copper wire and other scrap
metals.
A law going into effect Oct. 1 will require
recycling companies to maintain records on
every client bringing in scrap metal, including
a name, description, thumb print, identification


number, address and signature.
Recycling companies will also not be al-
lowed to pay cash for scrap metal worth more
than $1,000.


Troutman


introduced by Rep. Baxter
Troutman, a Republican
representing Winter Haven.
He refers to it as his copper-
wire bill.
"I did it because I got
pissed off," said Troutman,
who lost $4,200 in May 2007
when the wire was stolen
from his citrus irrigation


system.
"The real scary part and the real frustrating
part is it jeopardized the fruit crops, which are
worth well over $100,000," Troutman said.

Fines start at $52.50 for
pedestrians and $144 for

To avoid fines, pedestrians
are required to use crosswalks


and obey traffic signals.
Drivers must yield to anyone
in a crosswalk.
UF freshman Noelle
Anderson said she thought
there was no reason for these
fines.
"That's more than the $30

Anderson said.

Shands ER policy promises privacy in alcohol cases


* STUDENTS WILL NOT BE
PENALIZED.

By JACQUELYN WEINER
Alligator Writer

When Johnny Ramirez started
his UF career, many of his new
friends had the same advice on


what to do when he had too much
to drink.
"You can't take them to Shands,"
was the advice from Ramirez's
friends if an underaged classmate
showed signs of alcohol poisoning.
Instead, they told Ramirez, a
criminology senior, to take drunken
friends to an off-campus facility to


avoid punishment from UF.
However, Jeanna Mastrodicasa,
UF's assistant vice
Student president for Student
Life Affairs, said advice like
this is not only mis-
taken but potentially
dangerous.
Mastrodicasa hopes to dispel


this rumor and others with an edu-
cational campaign this fall to alert
students of actual emergency room
policies.
Liam Holtzman, associate
medical director for the Emergency
Department at Shands at UF, said
in most cases, no one is notified if
a student is admitted for alcohol-


related reasons because students 18
years and older are legally consid-
ered adults.
"Nobody has the right to your
information without your permis-
sion," Holtzman said.
And contrary to what some
students may think, he said Shands

Primary to decide two races


By ANDREA ASUAJE
Alligator Writer
A win in the primary election is
usually a ticket to the general elec-
tion.
But for some candidates in to-
day's primary, it may mark the end
of campaigning.
Among today's eight races, two
will determine winners for positions
normally decided in the general
election.
The two races are the sheriff's
race, between Sheriff Sadie Damell
and Lonnie Scott, and the property
appraiser race, in which incumbent
Ed Crapo is running against Alonzo
Victor Perkins.
The four candidates are
Democrats, and since there are no
Republican candidates running for
the positions.
This makes it a universal pri-
mary, meaning it opens voting up to
members of different parties.
It also means today's primary

UM bans cars for freshmen; UF not to follow suit


E UM AIMING TO BE MORE
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY.

By RACHEL ARROYO
Alligator Writer

While UF freshmen purchase
their car decals and peruse campus
parking lots, University of Miami
freshmen were forced to leave their
car keys at home.
UM officials have banned fresh-
men residents from bringing their
cars to campus as part of a strat-
egy called "Green U" to promote
environmentally friendly living.
and decrease parking shortages
on campus, said Richard Sobaram,


UM's director of Parking and
Transportation.
Scott Fox, director of UF's
Transportation and Parking Services,
has taken note of the policy, but he
said it's not a plan that's going to be
implemented at UF anytime soon.
Fox said as long as UF students
have been allowed to drive on cam-
pus, freshmen have been permitted
to bring their cars.
"Freshmen need access to facili-
ties in Gainesville just like anyone
else," Fox said.
Sobaram said because approxi-
mately 500 UM freshmen buy park-
ing decals per year, 500 more spaces
are available for faculty, administra-
tion and upperclassmen.


As an alternative to driving a
car, UM offers its students free on-
campus shuttle service and access to
three rental Zipcars, he said.
"The more we rely on public
transportation, the less we rely on
our cars, the better
On off we are," Sobaram
Campus said.
In past years, ac-
cess to cars has prompted students
to search for entertainment beyond
Coral Gables. Sobaram said he
hopes freshmen will take advantage
of university-sponsored events now
that their transportation is limited.
Dedee Delongpre-Johnston, di-
rector of UF's Office of Sustainability,
applauded UM's decision for its eco-


friendly efforts.
While she noted that UF is not
yet in a position to make the same
change, she is confident in the steps
UF has taken toward promoting
"green" methods of transportation,
such as offering students eight
Zipcars for rent and access to RTS
buses.
UF's sustainability office is
also promoting the "One Car Less
Challenge," which calls for partici-
pants to sign an informal agreement
to use an alternative mode of trans-
portation during the fall semester,
she said.
Delongpre-Johnston said having
a car would make some students'
lives easier but not without con-


sequence.
Shante Thornton, a UF freshman,
said she relies on her bike to get
around because parking is sparse.
Thornton owns a car, but after
spending one summer at UF, she
decided it wasn't necessary and left
it at home.
Danielle Rickman, a UF sopho-
more, said after having attended UF
for a year, she could not imagine her
experience sans her wheels.
"The main point of college
for people who have graduated
(from high school) is to grow up,"
Rickman said. "Not having a car
makes you rely on other people. Not
having a car hinders your indepen-
dence."

Walk it out

Jaywalking tickets will

slow us down
If you're anything like us, then you sprint toward the
door the second lecture ends to make it back to your apart-
ment in time for Comedy Central's midday hour of "Scrubs."
We can't blame you for rushing home so you can attempt to
memorize Dr. Cox's obnoxiously long-winded retorts.
Starting next week you may have to fight your addiction
because the Gainesville Police Department is cracking down
on those of you who cheat your way across the street in defi-
ance of the "Do Not Walk" sign.
Even though we've grown so accustomed to our after-
noon couch-potato routine, we're going to have to leave
our track shoes at home after this weekend. So will you if
you have to cross Southwest 13th Street or West University
Avenue on your way home.
Sorry if you disagree, but watching "Scrubs" reruns for the
billionth time is not worth getting nabbed for a $50 jaywalk-
ing ticket. From now on, we'll just have to pace ourselves.
We'll impatiently mash those chrome circles a hundred
times per second hoping to speed up the stoplight's cycle
just enough so we can still make it home in time to catch J.D.
hanging up the title X-ray.
For those high and mighty drivers snickering at the walk-
ers, don't be so quick to chuckle. Sure, we'll get ticketed for
crossing at the wrong time, but if you guys try to cut us off
in hopes of crushing our sitcom dreams, your wallet will be-
come the recipient of a vicious kick to the face: a $144 Jet Li
roundhouse to the snout, to be exact.
So, starting next week we'll be sneaking out a bit early or
sleeping just a bit too late to make it all the way to Weimer
Hall. That, or we could always get DVR.



Fear not, sloppy Gators


Here at the Alligator,
we just can't wait for the
weekend. We know it's only
Tuesday, but hear us out. It
might only be the second
day of fall, but that means
that we're four days away
from the first Gators football
game of the year, and noth-
ing reminds us more of sum-
mer than sweaty fun in the
Swamp.
However, we all know
what sometimes comes with
weekly football ruckus. There
is always some lightweight
who has to leave the game
early because the heat has
sucked the last drop of wa-
ter from his body, and the
humidity is attempting to
relocate his stomach onto the
game-day dress of the girl in
front of him.
Up until recently, even we
thought an alcohol-induced
trip to Shands at UF would
lead to academic conse-


quences, or worse, a call to
our parents.
So: we're happy to help
Jeanna Mastrodicasa, assis-
tant vice president for student
affairs, put an end to those
rumors.
To the few out there who
are proud to call themselves
"That Guy" or "That Girl,"
don't let your overly ambi-
tious livers be outdone by
your sheepish stomachs.
Once your friends carry you
home from the Swamp and
toss you onto the couch to
pass out in the fetal position,
you can rest assured knowing
that UF will not punish you if
you're admitted to Shands to
have your stomach pumped.
Okay, seriously, nobody
loves a sloppy Gator and no
one likes "That Guy," so be
prepared to feel guilty when
you stumble back to life, but
don't worry that anyone has
called Mommy.

Opinions

Guest column

Biden a smart choice, despite criticism


after months of speculating, waiting and politick-
ing, Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Barack
Obama has finally selected his running mate.
Now that Sen. Joe Biden has completed the Democratic
presidential ticket, the question is rapidly turning toward
the Delaware senator's ability to serve Obama on the
ticket. Without a doubt, Biden was the most complimen-
tary choice Obama could have made given his available
options.
Critics deploy two main arguments against choosing
the Scranton, Pa., native, none of which hold up upon
careful examination. The most common argument against
Biden is his tendency to be gaffe-prone. From referring to
Obama as the "first mainstream African-American who is
articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy" to
describing how he would shove rosary beads down the
throats of Republicans who criticize him, Biden is cer-
tainly known as a blunder machine.
However, his ability to talk straight and relate to mid-
dle-class voters easily overcomes any verbiage issues he
may encounter. All vice presidential candidates are gaffe-
prone because they often assume the mantle of attack
dog. There is'no one better than Biden to fill this role. He
demonstrated his sometimes vicious tendencies during
the Democratic debates, noting that the only three things
former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani mentions in a
sentence are "a noun, a verb, and 9/11." Biden has trans-
formed his childhood speech impediment into a gift for
giving a solid, meat-and-potatoes blue collar speech.
The second criticism leveled against Biden is that he
can't deliver a significant number of electoral votes to
Obama. While Delaware only holds three electoral votes
and is already solidly democratic, this hasn't stalled past
presidential tickets. The truth is that the ability of vice
presidents to deliver extra electoral votes has been vastly


overstated for decades. The last
time a vice president delivered
a state to a presidential nomi-
nee was- 1960 when Lyndon B.
Johnson added Texas to President
Kennedy's 337 electoral vote vic-
Kyle Robisch tory.
letters@alligator.org Rather than hindering
Obama's booming bandwagon,
Biden brings much to the ticket.
He brings experience where it is direly needed: He is the
former chair of the Senate's most powerful committee,
the Judiciary Committee. He also serves as chairman of
the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, which will help
to fill the holes in Obama's thin foreign policy portfolio.
Biden's recent journey to Tbilisi, Georgia, came at the re-
quest of Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili. It was
Biden, not McCain, whose presence was requested in the
face of Russian aggression.
A cursory glance at the other options for vice president
leaves much to be desired. Indiana Sen. Evan Bayh's
bland centrist credentials would have done little for
Obama. Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine is not terribly popular
and, like Obama, his youth would lead to questions of
inexperience. And Rep. Chet Edwards of Texas has less
name recognition than the Florida State University foot-
ball team.
The only thing that remains to be seen is whether
McCain can choose a running mate as ideal as his oppo-
nent's. If McCain fails to deliver a solid vice president to
complete the republican ticket, then Biden may provide
the push Obama needs to jump back up in the polls and
pull away for good.

Letters to the Editor
Editorial unfair to Machen
I can't tell you how ticked off I
was when I read your editorial this
morning. The reason? You got it
wrong.
UF President Bernie Machen
did not approach the St. Petersburg
Times to offer them the op-ed you
see in today's paper, as you suggest.
Times editorial editor Tim
Nickens called us early last week
and asked for an op-ed by President
Machen about his position on the
Amethyst Initiative.
As a journalist, you will appreci-
ate why we didn't proceed to turn


around and offer that op-ed to other
papers. It was their idea. They asked
for it first. They get it first.
This should have been obvious
to you from the counterpoint op-ed
by the Eckerd College president that
ran alongside the UF op-ed.
In any event, if you had thought
of it first, we would have extended
you the same professional courtesy.
I know that when I was a reporter,
I would have been pretty angry if a
source went to another reporter with
a story I had enterprise.
It goes without saying, then, that
your further suggestion that he of-


fered it to the Times for political
reasons is equally wrong.
I never object to an editorial
writer expressing an opinion that
differs from that of the administra-
tion. That's your job. But I have a
real problem with expressing an
opinion that's based on an incorrect
assumption.
Next time, please do your home-
work.
Steve Orlando
Spokesman for the University of
Florida and Director for Print Media

Missing trays spark epiphany
I went to Gator Dining today
and saw that the Alligator wasn't
kidding when it said the dining hall
had done away with trays.
"How am I going to eat here
without a tray to put food on? It'll
take seven trips back and forth be-
fore I have enough food to make a
meal! Look, I have a bowl of apple-
sauce and some salad. I can't even
get a drink or a main dish without
coming back."
"Will," my friend said. "They
don't have trays anymore because
people take too much food and then


don't eat it all. Especially girls."
I was unconvinced.
"This will increase anorexia," I
prophesied glumly when I saw she
only had a salad. I stubbornly went
to get a quesadilla and chocolate
milk before I began eating.
As we talked, I realized I wasn't
as hungry as I thought. By the time
I finished all my food, I was full. I
didn't even have enough room for a
to-go cookie like my friend. And just
like that, my appetite for complain-
ing was appeased as well.

Library East pop culture exhibit a blast from the past


* UF CURATOR DONATED
HIS PERSONAL COLLECTION

By LAUREN BAKER
Alligator Writer

It all started with a third-grade
homework assignment.
In 1963, Jim Liversidge clipped
out a news article documenting
then-President John F. Kennedy's
assassination.
Since that day, he has saved
about 7,000 items related to pop
culture.
After about five decades, the
collector decided to hang up
his self-dubbed guilty pleasure
and donate everything to UF's
Smathers Libraries.
About 40 people examined his
collection at a reception Monday
at Library East, poring over items
related to John Lennon, PBS icon
Mister Rogers, comedian Bill
Cosby, Neil Armstrong and other
history greats.
Liversidge, curator of the
library's Popular Cultures
Collections, donated his collec-
tion in June.
The exhibit, which ended
Monday, included items such as
trading cards, bobblehead dolls,
autographed photos, news clip-
pings, movies and a George W.
Bush jack-in-the-box.


All items are still available to
view by request.
Liversidge created an online
inventory that students can
browse on the Special and Area


Studies Collections Web site.
The official name is "The
Passing Parade: A Baby Boomer
Collects: The Jim Liversidge
Collection," but Rich Bennett,


chairman of the department
that oversees the collection, said
Liversidge joked about calling
the exhibit "Get a Life."
Over the years, Liversidge's


Harrison Diamond / Alligator Staff
Alan Bliss, a UF history instructor, looks at a display housing items in the Jim Liversidge Collection at a
reception dedicating the exhibit in the Smathers Library gallery Monday.


collection spanned a spectrum
of categories beyond the original
scrapbook fixation to include
such pieces as figurines, cam-
paign pins, books and autographs
from a range of well-known poli-
ticians, filmmakers, TV stars and
musicians.
"It just kind of became a (pas-
sion) after a while, and a compul-
sion actually," Liversidge said.
"The last couple of years, I re-
alized I needed to move on."
Liversidge said his favorite
moment as a collector came when
he obtained an autograph from
actor Larry Fine of the television
program "The Three Stooges."
Mixed in with the items from
major historical events are pieces
reflecting Liversidge's personal
interests, including an entire sec-
tion dedicated to the film "It's a
Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World."
Politics is the largest genre
in his collection, but he also has
categories encompassing space
exploration, comedy shows and
sports.
Bennett even contributed
an original Carl Yastrzemski
baseball card from his youth to
Liversidge's collection.
"For all of us who have been
through this period, it's a won-
derful walk down memory lane,"
Bennett said.

STUDENT HEALTH

Biotech lab aims to relieve stress


By ILEANA MORALES
Alligator Writer
imorales@alligator.org

With more college students re-
porting thoughts of suicide nation-
wide, the UF Counseling Center
is opening a lab to help students
before they reach that point.
Sherry Benton, the center's
director, said a new biofeedback
lab opening in Peabody Hall next
week will show students how to
overcome anxiety and stress with
computer programs that guide
them through deep breathing and
muscle relaxation exercises.
The lab will open two weeks
after the American Psychological
Association released a survey of
college students concerning sui-
cide.
More than half of the 26,000
students surveyed from 70 schools
have considered suicide, according
to the findings.
Pressure from college and aca-
demics is one of the top reasons stu-
dents reported considering suicide.
"Students felt school was more
competitive, less collaborative,"
Benton said.
The UF program, which can
be described as a cross between
a yoga video and a video game,
uses clamps for students' fingers to


measure changes in heart rate and
level of sweat as they learn how to
stomp stress.
Animated trees or butterflies
help the user follow a slow, steady
rate of breathing in one of 15 ex-
ercises Benton recommends to
be used weekly by students who
qualify for the treatment
"Students felt school was
more competitive, less col-
laborative."
Sherry Benton
UF Counseling Center director

"It really changes their physiol-
ogy in relaxing," Benton said.
The number of students using
UF's Counseling Center shot up in
the past decade and has remained
steady over the past couple of
years. About 1,700 students visit
each year, Benton said.
The Office of the Vice President
of Student Affairs gave the center a
grant in spring 2007, and $36,000 of
it paid for renovation of the fourth
floor in Peabody Hall and construc-
tion on the biofeedback lab, which
started this summer.
Courtney Knowles, executive
director of the Jed Foundation, a
nonprofit organization for prevent-
ing suicide and promoting mental


health in college students, said stu-
dents see college as the foundation
for their futures, and admitting any
struggle is admitting failure.
"Stigma is very self-perceived,"
Knowles said, adding that de-
pressed students isolate themselves
and are hard to help.
According to the APA research,
nearly 80 percent of students who
commit suicide do so without ever
seeking counseling services. Suicide
is the second-leading cause of death
for college students.
Knowles said 98 percent of
suicides have diagnosable mental
health problems at the time of
death.
That's why Benton said she
hopes to get students into the
Counseling Center before they start
considering or planning suicide.
The biofeedback lab approach is
new to UF but is not to Benton.
Before she came to UF in
February, she was an administrator
at the University of Kansas, which
had a similar lab used by between
60 and 100 students each week.
She said before adding the lab as
a precautionary measure, a 13-year
study showed the number of stu-
dents with serious suicidal thoughts
quadrupled to account for 20 per-
cent of the University of Kansas's
counseling center patients.

Increase in Gainesville


UF to spread word about Shands ER policy


HOSPITAL, from page 1
doesn't call parents unless the patient requests it,
although they often find out later on when the bill
arrives.
Revealing personal information to any party, be it
the police, UF or a student's parents, would violate
both UF policy and federal law under the Health
Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, called
HIPAA, he said.
UF's emergency room policy states: "If a UF stu-
dent is seen in the emergency room for an alcohol
related incident, police are NOT notified by the staff
of the hospital."
These policies apply to area hospitals, including
Shands and North Florida Regional Medical Center,
Mastrodicasa said.
Mastrodicasa said she recorded a public service


announcement Sunday about the emergency room
issue for radio station 97.3 FM to air as part of the
campaign.
The next step to spread the word to students will
be adding a section to UF's Web site explaining the
policy, she said.
"Alot of this is about word of mouth," Mastrodicasa
said. "What we're going to do is try to no-
Student tify and inform key people."
Life Mastrodicasa also said she plans to
look into incorporating emergency room
policy into First-Year Florida curriculum.
"Getting the word out to students on anything
is always challenging," Mastrodicasa said. "So we're
looking for any available avenue."
And that's an effort Ramirez said students would
appreciate.
"They're better off being taken care of than taking
a chance," he said.


copper thefts reflects nationwide trend


COPPER, from page 1


Keaton Russ, manager of Gulf Coast
Metals, a recycling company on Waldo
Road, said he recognizes the need for tighter
regulations, though they might be difficult
to adjust to at first.
"It probably may be a hassle for the
customer, but with rising copper thefts, it's
getting to be a hassle for law enforcement,"
Russ said.


Many recycling companies are already
starting to comply with the new law, he said.
Gulf Coast Metals currently records names,
addresses and drivers license numbers for
all its customers. A license plate number is
required for all sales except for metal cans.
Another law targeting copper-wire theft
also goes into effect Oct. 1, making it a first-
degree felony to interfere with a utility or
phone company's services.
Meanwhile, an increase in wire thefts
- including a $10,000 loss Aug. 17 to


"This is not just a Gainesville
problem. This is a nationwide
problem."
Summer Hallett
GPD spokeswoman

All Florida Electric have caused the
Gainesville Police Department to be on alert,.
spokeswoman Summer Hallett said.
A special GPD police detail caught its


first offender early Wednesday morning in a
Northeast Gainesville industrial park.
James Michael Williams Jr., 23, adniitted
to police that he took wire from the back of a
truck and put it in his own. Wire in the first
truck had been partially pulled out and cut,
and Williams' vehicle contained bolt cutters
and more of the same wire.
Police will continue to be on the lookout
for wire thefts, Hallett said.
"This is not just a Gainesville problem,"
she said. "This is a nationwide problem."

Leadership key to improved UF defense

By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Staff Writer
khyppolite@alligator.org -.t

Despite sporting a collection of highly touted re-
cruits it would be an understatement to say the Gators
defense struggled last season.
UF allowed over 250 yards passing per game last
season en route to giving up 25.5 points per game. A
lack of leadership appeared to be the key to the Gators
defensive woes.
Because tight end Tate Casey doesn't think lack of
talent was the issue.
"That's never the issue between a non-champion-
ship team and a championship team," Casey said.
"The two main things, one would be
discipline, and the second thing would
be leadership."
The Gators certainly lacked leader-
Football ship on defense as they introduced nine
new starters following the exit of the core
members of the 2006 championship team.
The influx of new starters led to a dearth in the un-
derstanding of each player's role and accountability.
Junior linebacker Brandon Spikes is now taking the
mantle of leadership in the same fashion his predeces-
sor, Brandon Siler, did.
"On our defense we try to hold everybody account-
able, but he's like the voice," fellow linebacker Dustin .
Doe said. "He's the vocal leader on the defense, and the
linebackers are like the quarterbacks of the defense."
Improved leadership from Spikes as well as imun- .:
proved camaraderie among the entire unit have led to
the defense dubbing itself the "wolf pack."
"(Assistant coach Steve Addazio) put up a quote
that said, 'The strength is in the pack and the pack is
the strength,' so we just try to hold everyone account-
able," Doe said. "We know that we're only as strong as
the person beside us. We're trying to make everybody
better." Casey Brooke Lawson, Alligator
Doe has done more than just use words, too, as the FAU running back Charles Pierre runs past UF linebacker Brandon Spikes

SEC FOOTBALL

ESPN, SEC agree to unprecedented deal


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

ESPN and the Southeastern
Conference have agreed to the
longest contract in the network's
history to gain rights to the SEC's
football and men's and women's
basketball games.
The deal starts during the
2009-10 season and will run
through the 2023-24 season. It
is reportedly worth a ridiculous
$2.25 billion. The contract effec-
tively ends any chance of the SEC
having its own network, some-
thing that had been talked about
in the last few months. CBS will
still broadcast games for which


they are already contracted for,
but the affiliation with Raycom
sports has ended.
"We're thrilled at the historic
nature of this deal," ESPN ex-
ecutive vice president for content
John Skipper said. "We've had
college sports as part of our DNA
for 29 years."
While SEC commissioner
Mike Slive said he had highly

"I can remember when the

their channel, and we had also
been talking about it at that

Football


back at last

Don't get me wrong. I love
baseball as much as the
next guy.
In fact, I probably watched
more Mariners games this sum-
mer than the good people of
Seattle.
The Olympics were a nice
distraction during the summer
doldrums, too. I even got into the
Euro 2008 soccer tournament.
But I don't think I'm alone
when I make this proclamation:
Thank God football is back.
The sport that runs this uni-
versity and America finally re-
turns nationally Thursday night
and locally
on Saturday.
As always,
it should be
well worth
the wait.

Spikes sidelined with foot injury


Ryan Stamper would start in LB's place


By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Staff Writer
khyppolite@alligator.org


The injury bug has been particu-
larly attracted to UF this off-season.
Middle linebacker Brandon Spikes
is the latest victim, and it appears
a foot injury will keep him out of
Saturday's season opener against
Hawaii.
"I hope it's just a one-game deal,"
defensive coordinator Charlie Strong
said.
"You just don't know if it's going
to be week-to-week, but hopefully
it's a one-game deal."
Spikes established himself as the
leader of the Gators defense and ex-
pectations were high for the junior as
a result.
"He has never had the strength
or complete commitment to the off-
season, but he has this year," coach
Urban Meyer said.
"I think he is one of the best line-

EVAN, from page 21


backers in the country and is ready to
take that next step."
If you ask Strong, the Gators will
get by just fine with Ryan Stamper,
who will start in Spikes' place.
"[Stamper's] probably the most
reliable player on our football team,"
Strong said.
HARVIN WATCH: There are just four
days remaining until UF's matchup
with Hawaii and wide receiver Percy
Harvin has yet to
participate in a full
practice.
Harvin under-
went heel surgery in
April and has been
slow to recover.
He spent the
Harvin majority of training
camp doing conditioning drills and
just began cutting drills approxi-
mately two weeks ago.
The Heisman candidate has
looked good in limited action, ac-


team, much like the NFL preseason.
But Moody knows and we all know the spring games
and preseason matchups are merely "somewhat of a foot-
ball game."
Football does a great job keeping itself in the news with
the NFL Draft, spring games, minicamps, training camps
and fall practices. But, quite frankly, all of those things are
incredibly boring. Wake me when it's over.
Yeah, it's time for football to start again.
"America comes alive when college football season starts,
we all know that," defensive line coach Dan McCarney said.
Can't wait. We've been out here in the winter, in the
spring, in the summer, walkthroughs, and I've never been
here on game day. I can't wait. This is what it's all about."
Who doesn't love the bone-crushing hits, the deep


bombs, the ankle-breaking jukes, the hated yellow penalty
flags and even-more-despised red challenge flags, the punt-
return touchdowns and last-second field goals?
Offensive lineman Jason Watkins sure does. He's tired
of it being just practice and knows what he wants to do
instead.
"Just football in general, man, so you can go out there
and take it out on other people," Watkins said. "Every day
in practice you see the same people."
Regardless of how we are supposed to devote our time
while we are students here, the fall semester is devoted en-
tirely to football.
On Saturday, when the fans are tailgating all around
campus and shaking The Swamp, everything will be right
with the world. The greatest sport on the planet is back for
another year, and this town and the country are about to
become enveloped.
Game on.

cording to teammates but has battled
soreness following practice.
"Percy practiced Saturday, but
not the entire practice," Meyer said.
"He still has a reaction where once he
goes for a little bit, he needs to watch
it because he gets sore."
FEELING LIKE A FAN: It appears UF's
dependence on Tim Tebow and Percy
Harvin in the running game is coming
to an end.
Coach Meyer has been critical of
his running backs in the past, but this
season's unit has him singing a dif-
ferent tune.
"I'm kind of a fan, I can't wait to
watch these guys play," he said.
"You inject three guys into that
lineup. One was ineligible last year
(Emmanuel Moody), one shouldn't
have been on the field Chris
Rainey weighed 155 with a bad
shoulder and then you've got one
who's running 10-(second)-flat 100
meters (Jeff Demps)."

junior has grown his beard out during the sum-
mer.
"I'm wolfing right now," Doe said with a
laugh.
Spikes has grown a beard as well and joked
that it could be for intimidation purposes.
"This is a much different team."
Urban Meyer
'UF football coach

Taking the time to bond off the field has been
instrumental to growth on the field.
According to players and coaches, there were
several fights in practice last season, which illus-
trated just how disconnected the team was.
Several cliques formed within the team, some-
thing strength and conditioning coach Mickey
Marotti attempted to nip in the bud.
"Coach Mick would always say, 'Hey, I al-
ways see you with these guys,'" cornerback Joe
Haden said."
''One thing we've tried to do is hang out with
guys we probably would never hang out with
before."
If you ask members of the Gators defense
what the keys to improvement this season are,
one of the first things you will hear is improved
chemistry, rather than anything schematic.
Fourth-year coach Urban Meyer certainly has
noticed the difference in his team. Meyer said he
knew early on that the 2007 incarnation of the
Gators didn't have what it took to win champi-
onships.
While he won't say if this team has the capa-
bility, he does say he is happy with the way the
players communicate.
"This is a much different team," Meyer said.

SEC Preview: Vanderbilt Commodores


ON OFFENSE: The Commodores took a huge hit to their offense in the off-season
with the departure of wide receiver Earl Bennett. Bennett's 236 career receptions is
an all-time Southeastern Conference mark, and there's no way to replace him. Still;
overall, Vandy is moving in the right direction with the acquisition of talent. Newly
minted offensive captain George Smith may help ease some of the pain from Bennett's
exit at the wide receiver spot. But the problem for Vandy is one that plagues many
teams a quarterback controversy. Senior Chris Nickson and junior Mackenzi Adams
both saw time at the helm during 2007. Nickson, seen as a dual-threat quarterback
early on, struggled with a shoulder injury. Adams replaced him and had some success
late in the year. but all in losses. If the Commodores want to bring the team together.
they need to settle on one guy. The other problem with the offense is that just three
starters are coming back. Besides Smith and Adams. senior wide receiver Sean Walker
remains with the team. When you've got five new offensive linemen, your offense is
already at a huge disadvantage.

ON DEFENSE: Vanderbilt's defense makes up for all the experience the offense
lacks. Seven of 11 starters are coming back for the 2008 season, including both
safeties and two cornerbacks. The secondary will certainly be the strength of this team,
with upperclassmen Ryan Hamilton and Reshard Langford handling ire deep balls
and juniors Myron Lewis and D.J. Moore lining up with some of the fastest receivers in
the nation. However, only one defensive lineman is making a repeat appearance and
two AII-SEC linebackers have been cleaned out, so teams should have a blast running
right up the gut of the Vandy defense.
ROCK: Vanderbilt will rock because it has some winnable out-of-conference games, a
secondary that can compete with any other in the conference and a solid receiving corps.

ROLL: Vanderbilt will get rolled because it is still the worst team in the Eastern
Division. Though they're making strides in the right direction and increased their win
total by one last year, six wins just won't cut it against UF, Georgia and Tennessee.
Expect the running game to tear this team apart on defense and lots of pressure on
whichever quarterback this team goes with.

IMPACT PLAYER: WR GEORGE SMITH
Now that Bennett is gone, it's all up to Smith to lead his troops into battle.
Smith is well versed in battles. He survived transverse myelitis a rare disorder that causes
a swelling of the spinal cord and a loss of bodilyfunctions in 2004, rehabbed for a year and
a half and came back to become the team's offensive captain this spring.
"It's just an honor," Smith said. "I feel very blessed.... My whole outlook on life has just
completely changed. When something like that happens to you, you just know when you have
bad days, it's like, 'All right, I've been through worse.'" Smith
After all three years or being the Igor to Dr. Frankenstein. Smith is ready to take over for
Bennett
"Mvl and Earl learned a lot from each other," Smith said. "We competed day in and day out we had a lotof fun with
it. We got on each other when we dropped balls and missed blocks. We Just made each other better."
Snitn's 32 receptions for 397 yards and three touchdowns is almost certain to increase this year as he becomes
the No. 1 option.
Vandy hasn't beer to a bowl game since 1982 when they lost to Air Force in the Hall of Fame Bowl, but Smith
believes his team can get things done this year
"We're still willing to go out trere and prove to evervooad final we're sill a team that can compete week in and week
out with ne best of the best." Smith said.

UF FOOTBALL

Moody proves talent to Meyer


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

This summer, Urban Meyer
walked by Emmanuel Moody in
the weight room and succinctly
told him, "Boy, I hope you're re-
ally good."
Ai-i that was after a spring
where the sophomore transfer
running back didn't understand
UF's offense and even had a
goal-line fumble in the Orange
and Blue scrimmage.
Now, Meyer has more than
hope. Moody is starting to give
him some results.
The former Southern Cal
back holds on to the ball and
might soon find himself atop the
Gators depth chart.
"I would put Emmanuel real
close to great," Meyer said. "He
is a completely different player
than he was last spring, and he
is ready to go out there and play
college football."
Moody will not only play,
but he'll contribute heavily to a
group Meyer has gotten nearly
giddy about.
It wasn't an easy path,
though, as it's not easy to learn
a playbook that resembles an
encyclopedia.


Basically, Moody had to learn
Urban Meyer Philosophy 101
quickly.
"More repetitions, the more
practice you get, the more plays
you get, the more comfortable
you get with what you're do-
ing," Moody said about what's
changed since the spring.

"The biggest thing that
changed is he took the
summer to thoroughly
immerse himself in our
system and learn what his
responsibilities are."
Kenny Carter
UF running backs coach

One of the biggest parts of
Moody's UF education came
with learning to hold the ball
tighter and higher up on his
chest.
"That's the only problem he
had," fellow running back Chris
Rainey said. "He's really good'
(now)."
He's on target with every-
thing that happens off the field
as well.
"It takes a little bit to get
used to me," running backs
coach Kenny Carter said. "He


had to adapt to me, and I had
to adapt to him. As a coach, you
have to understand all kids are
different.
"So once I figured out ex-
actly what his buttons were,
and he realized I wasn't going to
change, we were able to get on
the same page."
While Moody said he'd rip
hair out of his head if his bald
skull had any, that is trying
to defend the litany of weapons
the Gators have in the backfield,
he could be the first back off the
bench.
That apparently includes
fullback, too, where Carter
said Moody did some work in
Monday's practice.
Carter said adding Moody's
6-foot and 210-plus frame at the
fullback position "takes us to
another level."
"The biggest thing that
changed is he took the summer
to thoroughly immerse himself
in our system and learn what
his responsibilities are," Carter
said.
"He's really bought in to
understanding all the ins and
outs of the position and what
we need to do in pass protection
and what we need to do in the
run game."
