UF students flock to Moe's, Chi


's Too


Harrison Diamond / Alligator Staff
Customers are served at the new Moe's Southwest Grill in the Racquet Club Dining Center on Tues-
day afternoon.


* CUSTOMERS SPENT MORE
THAN $11,000 THURSDAY.

By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Contributing Writer

The cash registers have been
getting a workout at the new Moe's
Southwest Grill and Chili's Too at
the Racquet Club Dining Center.
Even though many students
complained about the lack of a kids'
menu at Moe's, customers spent
more than $11,000 at the two res-
taurants on Thursday, the only day
for which figures were available,
said Lionel Dubay, UF's director of
business services, in an e-mail.
This is considerably higher than
the $3,000 earned on a typical day
last year by the six eateries that
previously occupied the building,
including Burger King and Java
City, Dubay said.
UF receives 10.4 percent of the
money from all campus food sales.
The two restaurants, which de-
buted Aug. 17, will employ about


110 people, compared to the 18
employees who worked at the pre-
vious stores, Dubay said.
He said one of the reasons for
the larger staff is that the res-
taurants have longer hours. The
hours for both locations are 10:30
a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through
Wednesday and 10:30 a.m. to mid-
night Thursday through Saturday.
The opening of the two restau-
rants caps a two-year
On process that was intro-
Campus duced to the public in
fall 2006 when students
voted on a referendum asking if
they wanted a Moe's on campus.
Almost 87 percent of the more
than 7,000 students who voted ap-
proved the referendum.
As a result, Bob Miller, UF's as-
sociate vice president of business
affairs, wrote a letter to Aramark,
UF's food service provider, asking
it to look into the possibility of
bringing a Moe's to UF.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Students to vote on longer Thanksgiving holiday


By JACQUELYN WEINER
Alligator Writer

The Wednesday before Thanksgiving
isn't an official UF holiday, but some
members of UF's Student Senate think it
should be.
In its first meeting of the fall semester
Tuesday, senators passed a resolution that
will allow students to vote on making that


Wednesday an official UF holiday during
Student Government elections Oct. 7-8.
The logic behind the ballot referendum
is that students can use that Wednesday
as a travel day to get home in time for
Thanksgiving.
Frank Bracco, former Chomp the Vote
Director, co-authored the resolution.
"They're not going to school that day
anyway, and most professors have it off,"


"I think this is a great bipartisan
thing we can all work on together
and look forward to."
Kellie Dale
Senate president

Bracco said.
Senate President Kellie Dale voiced her
support of the resolution as well.


"I think this is a great bipartisan thing
we can all work on together and look for-
ward to," Dale said.
While the senators passed the resolu-
tion unanimously, and it is expected to
be popular among student voters, it is
still unknown whether members of the
Faculty Senate's Curriculum Committee,

Alachua County primaries determine sheriff, appraiser


* SADIE DARNELL RETAINS
JOB AS SHERIFF.

By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Staff Writer

Alachua County's sheriff and
property appraiser held onto
their positions in Tuesday's local


primary election.
Sheriff Sadie Darnell defeated
Lonnie Scott with more than 60
percent of Tuesday's vote.
She said she planned to focus
on community policing and jail
overcrowding.
"I'm going to continue the mo- Darnell
mentum and accomplish the mis-
sion that has been set in place," Tuesday's race


Darnell said.
Ed Crapo,
Alachua County
property ap-
praiser, also re-
tained his seat,
earning more
than 65 percent
of the vote in
against Alonzo


Victor Perkins.
The property appraiser deter-
mines the values of homes and
researches what buyers are will-
ing to pay for them.
The election also established
Republican Don Curtis and
Democrat Julie Conley as nomi-
nees for District 10 state repre-
sentative.


County Commissioner Mike
Byerly earned the Democratic
nomination for District 1 County
Commission seat, defeating Rick
Bryant a former Gainesville
city commissioner.
School Board seats went to
Eileen Roy and Barbara Sharpe.

UF Bookstore discount
draws students
Judging from sales on
Student Government and the UF
Bookstore's first Textbook Sales
Tax Relief Day, some UF students
can't seem to resist a good deal.
The bookstore sold roughly
3,500 more books Monday than
the first day of school last fall,
increasing from 6,379 to 9,950
books, according to an SG news
release.
The one-day 6.25 percent dis-
count, a partnership between the
bookstore and SG, was offered
on all new and used textbooks at
the UF Bookstore on Monday.
The event was arranged after
the state's annual back-to-school
tax-free week was canceled this
year.
UF students saved $43,307
using the discount, according to

UF gyms get Wi-Fi


* OFFICIALS SAY WI-FI
WILL ATTRACT STUDENTS.

By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Contributing Writer

The air at UF's campus gyms is
now filled with more than just the
scent of students' sweat, thanks to
newly installed wireless Internet.
The Internet routers are in-
stalled at Southwest Recreation
Center and the Student Recreation
and Fitness Center, as well as the
Southwest Rec softball complex,
said David Bowles, director of
Recreational Sports.
Bowles said making wireless
Internet available to students
might make them more interested
in coming to the gym.
He said being able to check e-
mails or do homework before or
after workouts will help students
save time during the day.
The wireless Internet was
installed over the last few weeks
and did not cost UP any extra
money because it was installed at
the same time as a new Internet-
based phone system, said David
Stopka, UF's associate director for
facility operations.
Students can store their laptops
in gym lockers, Bowles said.
Included in the upcoming ren-
ovations of Southwest Rec, which
are scheduled to be completed by
spring 2011, are plans to add more
"social space," which will make


it easier for students to use the
Internet, he said.
Other planned renovations
include adding elliptical machines
that generate electricity when
used and increasing the number
of treadmills.
Bowles said students involved
"I would rather have bet-
ter Wi-Fi at the dorms. It
just seems kind of point-
less for a gym."
Sarah Arrazola
UF freshman

in intramural sports can check
their teams' schedules online and
communicate with teammates
while at the fields.
Mark Fike, a UF physical
therapy graduate student, said
wireless Internet at the gym is a
great idea.
Fike said he will probably use
it after working out during his
cool-down period before heading
to class.
Other students were more
skeptical.
"I would rather have better
Wi-Fi at the dorms," said Sarah
Arrazola, a UF freshman. "It
just seems kind of pointless for a
gym."
Freshman Kara Brock agreed.
"I use the gym to get away
from the computer," Brock said.


UF emergency texts succeed


By BRETT DALY
Alligator Writer

When Tropical Storm Fay forced officials to
close UF on Friday, the university's emergency-
notification system was put to its first real test after
undergoing two practice runs in spring.
Steve Orlando, UF spokesman, said the sys-
tem was largely successful in notifying students,
faculty and staff Thursday about stalled residence
hall move-in dates and the campus's closing.
However, the system, which includes text
messaging, e-mails, Web posts and reverse-911
calls, still needs a little
UF tweaking.
Administration Of more than 71,000
numbers in the system,
48,823 phones received
the emergency alert successfully, Orlando said.
About 18,600 messages were not received, and
the status of almost 4,000 messages cannot be de-
termined, he said.
Orlando said the reasons for the unsuccessful
messages have not been confirmed, but possible
factors include students incorrectly entering their
cell phone numbers when providing their contact
information, entering a landline instead of a cell
phone, not having text messaging on cell-phone
plans or being out of range when the message
was sent.
He said students who did not. receive the
message should check their contact information
online.
Sara Ajluni, a UF journalism senior, said she


thinks the text message alerts are a convenient
way to receive information, but the last message
didn't affect her since she wasn't in Gainesville at
the time.
The message was also the first one she re-
ceived. Ajluni didn't receive the two tests the
university sent out.
"I was happy because I actually got them this
time," she said. "I think it would be efficient in
other situations, too."
In addition to the text message, the university
also sent out e-mails to students informing them
of UF losing for the storm and posted the mes-
sage on the UF home page.
Orlando said more than 84,000 e-mails were
sent out, and the vast majority were sent in about
20 minutes.
Ashley Condell, a freshman, was one of the
students who had to rely on her e-mail instead of
text messaging to find out if UF had dosed from
the storm.
Because classes were not in session, Condell
said it didn't bother her that she didn't receive the
message even though she said she updated her
information online.
Orlando said he is confident everyone re-
ceived the information through at least one of the
system's notifications.
UF first.considered implementing a text-mes-
saging alert system during the 2004 hurricane
season, Orlando said.
Two tests of the system were conducted during
the spring semester, and Orlando said more tests
would be conducted throughout the term.

SANTA FE COLLEGE


OBT may take action against SFC textbook policy


By SARAH HENDERSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

Officials from Orange and Blue
Textbooks and SFC are debating
students' rights to know their text-
book options in Gainesville.
SFC's textbook contract, with
Barnes & Noble prohibits OBT
from advertising in the school
paper or handing out fliers and
coupons to students on their way
to class.
The store, located at 309 NW
13th St., began providing books to


SFC students in 2007.
"I can't tell if it's a school cam-
pus or a police state," said Kenneth
Roberts, president of OBT, who
said he was told his flier distribu-
tors would be arrested next time.
Larry Keen, assistant to the
president at SFC, said all commer-
cial solicitors are prohibited at the
college unless contracted through
the school a "collegewide policy
written in black and white."
The school holds an exclusive
contract with Barnes & Noble,
Keen said. Any textbook vendor


"Barnes & Noble is wanting
a monopoly, and the Santa
Fe administration seems to
be catering to that."
Jorelle Bobbitt
director of obt campus relations

was allowed to make a bid on the
contract with the college's book-
store, he said, and contracts usu-
ally last three years.
"It's unfair," said Jorelle


Bobbitt, director of OBT campus
relations. "Students are not getting
their right to have options."
But Keen said the contract does
not infringe on that right.
"Students have the right to go
elsewhere for textbooks," he said.
OBT representatives don't see it
that way. Bobbitt said she doesn't
understand why fliers can be dis-
tributed at UF and not SFC.
"Barnes & Noble is wanting a
monopoly, and the Santa Fe ad-
ministration seems to be catering
to that," Bobbitt said.


Roberts said the bookstore has
recently been unable to receive
course schedules, book lists and
other assistance from Santa Fe fac-
ulty and staff.
One of SFC's attorneys also
requested that an OBT television
commercial be taken off the air
because it contained footage of the
school's campus, Bobbitt said.
Roberts said he is considering
legal action.
"A level playing field is all we
want," he said, "which is what is
supposed to be there."


Pro-Obama student group registers thousands to vote


* CHOMP THE VOTE AND MCCAIN
GROUP DON'T RELEASE NUMBERS.

By RACHEL ARROYO
Alligator Writer

UF students can watch the debates, sport
red and blue or participate in discussion over
presidential policy, but one question remains:
Will they make it to the polls?
Campus groups such as Gators for
McCain, UF's chapter of Students for Barack
Obama and UF's Chomp the Vote are seeking
to ensure that they do.


Volunteers for Students for Barack Obama
were on campus Monday handing out voter
registration forms and urging students to
change their voting precinct to Alachua
County.
On Monday, the organization registered
2,533 voters, which includes already regis-
tered voters who changed their precinct to
Alachua County, said Garrett Garner, the
chapter's co-coordinator.
What began as a challenge between the
mayors of both Tallahassee and Gainesville to
see which university could register the most
voters in one day became a mini challenge
between the Florida State University and


UF chapters of Students for Barack Obama,
Garner said.
UF's chapter mobilized nearly three times
the amount of students as FSU, which reg-
istered about 900 students on
On Monday, Garner said.
CampuI He said the organization's
approach wasn't to persuade
students to vote in a certain direction but on
registering anyone and everyone.
Gators for McCain Tias taken a different
approach during the first few days of class,
choosing to stress platform issues over regis-
tration, said volunteer Joshua Simmons.
Simmons declined to say how many vot-


ers the group had registered so far.
Gators for McCain is also looking to put
manpower into the Alachua County local
campaign as opposed to placing all of their
emphasis on students, Simmons said. .
"We're not as worried about people
changing their addresses as making sure that
they're goingto vote," he said.
Chomp the Vote Director Brett Roth said
he didn't have the number of students his
organization registered.
However, he said Chomp the Vote has
put up 7,600 fliers, taken out advertisements
on WUFT-TV and spoken to professors who
teach large lecture halls.

Editorial

Blowing smoke

Senate's travel holiday

gives false hope
T he UF Student Senate passed a referendum Tuesday
night to give us the chance to vote on having an extra day
off from classes. Yay!
The Thanksgiving Travel Day Bill, if effective, would let
students vote on if they want to cancel classes the Wednesday
before Turkey Day so students can travel home for the holidays
without missing any class time.
And would you believe it only took one reading to pass?
We're sure that everyone would love an extra day at home
with their families before finals and our annual gridiron beat-
down of Florida State, but a Senate referendum alone will not
get us there.
Jeanna Mastrodicasa, assistant vice president for student af-
fairs, said she didn't know if faculty would be supportive, and
UF spokesman Steve Orlando said UF President Machen prob-
ably wouldn't go for it anyway.
Seems to us that a bill like this serves primarily to maintain
the self-esteem of the Senate and cram hollow, happy thoughts
into the student body's collective mind.
It would be extremely difficult to feel guilty for introducing
a bill that would give students a breather as the semester dwin-
dles to crunch time. However, if this referendum is not backed
by UF's administration, it lacks any real substance and merit.
The Editorial Board does not want to see its readers' heads
filled with hot air. There's no reason to build us up just to let us
down.
If we really enjoyed being disappointed, we would've con-
tinued to apply to MIT at the behest of our glue-sniffing high
school guidance counselors, despite our non-existent SAT math
scores.
.All we're saying is we want the Senate's actions to be both
practical and possible.



Wi-Fi while you work?


We've suffered far
too long waiting
for the Internet
to find its way to our gyms,
one of the few remaining
nooks where Wi-Fi isn't
readily available. It seems
that our days of Weblessly
toiling on the treadmills

We are addicted to our'e-

New IDs present identity risk
In 2005, Congress approved a bill call-
ing for emergency funds to aid in tsunami
relief efforts. Unfortunately, tacked onto the
bill was what is called the Real ID Act. This
sets federal standards for driver's licenses
that states are mandated to comply with by
December 2009.


These cards would create huge new risks
for identity fraud.
One of the requirements of the act is for
DMVs to store digital images of several
documents containing information on birth,
Social Security numbers and other personal
data. This information could be stolen from
DMV databases.


The same information is required to be
stored digitally on the card, which can be
scanned at bars or other locations that re-
quire ID.
Criminals could also easily obtain the
information themselves with readily avail-
able scanners.
In addition to these risks, the new act will


also place a hefty burden on taxpayers.
To avoid these risks and costs, it is im-
portant that Florida citizens pressure their
lawmakers to join other states, including
Georgia, Oklahoma and Washington, in re-
fusing to implement these changes.

Sinkholes appear after Fay


~BoWSoIlo Bsoo~


By ASHLEY HEMMY
Alligator Contributing Writer

Tropical Storm Fay has left behind a mess to
clean up in the form of two sinkholes that have
closed lanes on Interstate 10.
The smaller of the sinkholes, which were both
discovered Sunday, continues to block a westbound
lane on 1-10 in Suwannee County.
The larger has closed an eastbound lane in
Madison County, and it measures 180 feet long, 55
feet wide and about 25 feet deep.
"Luckily, traffic hasn't been too heavy," said Gina
Busscher, Florida Department of Transportation
spokeswoman.
Sinkholes form during droughts or heavy rain
when limestone beneath the surface wears away.
This forms a pocket, which causes the ground to
cave in.
Florida is especially prone to sinkholes because
the state's bedrock predominantly consists of lime-
stone.
Emergency crews are working to fill the cavities


Start of fall semester sparks bicycle repair spike at Reitz


* STUDENT GOVERNMENT
PLANS FOR NEW FACILITY.

By JACQUELYN WEINER
Alligator Writer

With the beginning of each se-
mester comes a rush to start anew
- bicycles included.
Students have been forming lines
outside the Student Government
Bike Repair station outside the Reitz
Union during the first few days of
class, anticipating free care for their
two-wheeled vehicles.
"Yesterday was nuts," said Ernie
Quincosa, an employee at the repair
station, about Monday's traffic.
"When I was working here for one
hour, I'd say 20,25 people came in."
Scott Powers, another bike re-
pair employee, said the long lines
are the norm for the beginning of
the semester and are partly caused
by the bike repair team's lack of a
manager, which has forced them to
reorganize.
The lines were similarly long on
Tuesday, with 12 students waiting
with their bikes about 15 minutes
before the repair shop's 3 p.m. clos-


ing time.
Student Body Treasurer Paul
Drayton acknowledged there are
problems with the repair shop and
said SG plans to build an entirely
new facility.
"Right now, it's not sufficient,"
Drayton said.
He said the facility will be en-
closed with glass walls, and SG
has allocated $80,000 dollars to the
project.
"Hopefully, that will get under
way in the near future," Drayton
said.
The repair shop was criticized
this time last year for not staffing
enough workers during the back-to-
school rush.
Workers at the bike repair are
employed by SG and are paid about
$7 an hour, Quincosa said.
He said there are usually two em-
ployees staffing the bike repair, but
those roles aren't set in stone.
John Remington, a sixth-year
Spanish major, said he had been in
line for an hour waiting to get the
chain on his bicycle fixed.
"Every time I've been here before,
just walked right in," Remington
said. "Took care of it."

with a combination of cement, sand and water.
In the meantime, the smaller sinkhole has been
covered with dirt.
"We believe that the rains from Tropical Storm
Fay led to the uncovering of dirt layers," Busscher
said.
Neither sinkhole formed directly under a road-
way, but past sinkholes have been more destruc-
tive.
"A few years ago, a larger sinkhole formed on a
lane on 1-75," said Busscher.
Gainesville has its own sinkholes, but most are
smaller and eventually settle as ponds.
"Sinkholes in Gainesville rarely cause prob-
lems," said Sgt. Joe Raulerson of the Gainesville
Police Department.
Because Gainesville has the same topography
as the rest of Florida, there is always a chance for
a sinkhole to form, said Mark Brenner, UF geology
professor.
Counties such as Suwannee are more vulnerable
to sinkholes because of the larger number of ponds
and lakes, Brenner said.

Elevator smoke


sets off alarm

A smoking elevator set off fire alarms at the Computer
Science Engineering building Tuesday, clearing out the
CIRCA Lab for about half an hour.
An elevator technician was called in immediately
to fix the problem: a worn-out shaft belt that generated
smoke.
The elevator was empty at the time. If people had
been in it, they probably would just have been stuck
between floors, said University Police Officer Sam
Sexton.
"It wouldn't drop like in the movies,"
On Sexton said.
Campus Students using the lab computers said
they were inconvenienced by the alarm.
Nadeige Thomas, a UF sophomore, said the alarm
went off four minutes before her allotted time to register
for classes.
"I could lose my seat," Thomas said.
Freshman Neel Patel, who was about to check his
schedule, was left with no idea where or when his next
class was.
"It kind of screwed up everything for me," Patel
said.


Members of Gainesville Fire Rescue exit the Computer Science Engineering building. The Fire Rescue checked the build-
ing after a fire alarm was set off Tuesday afternoon.

Sun to merge with Star-Banner


By KELSI KRIEGER
Alligator Contributing Writer

The New York Times Company announced
Monday that two of its publications, The Gainesville
Sun and the Ocala Star-Banner, will merge several
operations.
Copy editing, design and page layouts for both
newspapers will be done in Gainesville, and Jim
Osteen, the executive editor of The Gainesville Sun,
will now act as executive editor for both papers.
Robyn Tomlin, former executive editor of the
Star-Banner, recently accepted a position at another
New York Times newspaper in Wilmington, N.C.
There were two motives behind the merge, Star-
Banner Publisher Allen Parsons said to cut costs
and to be more efficient and competitive.
Tom McNiff, the managing editor for the Star-
Banner, said the change was not unusual.
"We're not the only two papers in the nation to
do this," McNiff said. "Producing both papers with


one desk will achieve some cost efficiencies and will
leave us both very strong papers."
Each staff's reporters will continue to gather
news, and the newspapers will retain their separate
titles and personalities.
"Producing both papers with one desk will
achieve some cost efficiencies and will
leave us both very strong papers."
Tom McNiff
managing editor for the Star-Banner

"The Gainesville Sun has a much younger audi-
ence, and we'll try to reflect the news to the very
different readerships," McNiff said.
Learning how to produce two newspapers in one
place may be a challenge, he said.
"Any time you make a significant change, there
are questions and uncertainties," he said. "But so
far, so good."

Turlington gets upgraded for looks, convenience


By LAUREN BAKER
Alligator Writer

Some Turlington Hall class-
rooms may be known for func-
tion rather than aesthetic appeal,
but three of the building's large
lecture halls received a makeover
this summer.
The lecture halls L-005, L-007
and L-011 debuted a fresh, mod-
ernized look for classes Monday
after being closed since May.
The project missed its original
deadline of July 31, but the halls
were ready for classes Monday,
said Harold Barrand, associate
director of architecture and en-
gineering at UF's Physical Plant
Division.
The division, which was in
charge of the project, faced a tight
deadline to rip up and replace the
carpets, ceilings, wall finishes,
chairs and desks, Barrand said.

Improvements to Turlington

Lecture halls now meet
American Disabilities Act stan-
dards
Each lecture hall received new
carpeting and flooring
Revamped air vents
Fresh tan-colored paint on the
walls
New permanent seats and
wider desks


A major part of the project
was bringing the rooms up to
Americans with Disabilities Act
standards that were put into ef-
fect after Turlington Hall opened
in 1977.
New features of the restored
classrooms include improved
accessibility for handicapped stu-
dents, with sloped flooring around
the perimeter of the room and
down the aisles, as well as desks
without an attached seat in the
back and front of the classrooms.
"[Turlington] was a bit
messy there for a while,
but it cleaned up nice, you
know?"
Harold Barrand
associate director of architecture
and engineering at UF's Physical
Plant Division

Barrand said the new style and
facilities brought the frequently
used lecture halls into the new
millennium.
"We're real proud of
Turlington," he said. "It was a
bit messy there for a while, but it
cleaned up nice, you know?"
Along with an orange-streaked
carpet and new flooring, the proj-
ect included adding new projectors
and a restored air duct system.
UF's Department of Academic
Technology set aside $1.2 million

to pay for the upgrades.
The renovations have received
mixed reviews from UF students
attending class in the lecture halls.
Shitarria Battle, a mechani-
cal engineering senior, said she
noticed the new classroom smell,
but the renovations weren't im-
pressive.
"As long as I can see what the


professor is writing on the board, I
don't really care how comfortable
the chair is," Battle said.
Other students leaving the
rooms praised the improved light-
ing, crisp air conditioning and spa-
cious desk area.
UF sophomore Justin Ritchey,
said he hated skating to his morn-
ing class last spring semester


because room L-007 was so hot in-
side. Plus, the tiny desks attached
to the seats did not fit a laptop.
Comfortably sitting in a new
chair with his laptop open on
a wide table, Ritchey said he
even appreciated the bland color
splashing the walls.
"The color may be a pretty plain
tan, but it looks nice," he said.

Chili's Too was suggested in later dis-

service committees.
The UF Moe's is the first one on a col-
lege campus, according to a Moe's spokes-
woman.
Brittney Davidson, a UF business ju-
nior, said she is excited about the two new


restaurants.
"You can definitely tell it's a lot busier,"
Davidson said while eating a meal from
Moe's on Tuesday afternoon.
However, she said she misses the kids'
menu, which was omitted from the on-
campus Moe's menu.
"We're college students. We like to get
our cheap kid's meal," she said.
Jill Rodriguez, spokeswoman for Gator
Dining Services, wrote in an e-mail that


"We're college students. We like
to get our cheap kid's meal."
Brittney Davidson
UF business junior

kids' menus were not included because
they are geared toward children under 12,
which is not their customer base.
Another complaint made by students
was that the restaurants do not offer free


drink refills.
Rodriguez wrote that Gator Dining
Services has an on-campus drink refill
program that allows students to purchase
reusable 32-ounce cups. The cup and drink
cost $1.99 initially. Refills are $1.29 at any
on-campus location that sells fountain
drinks.
Moe's and Chili's will begin participat-
ing in the drink refill program this week,
she wrote.

Steve Orlando, UF spokesman, said he doubted admin-
istration would be in favor of such a move.
However, Bracco said representatives from five depart-
ments in Tigert Hall that he met with seemed interested,
as long as students showed significant interest.
"They all were very receptive to the idea," Bracco
said.
Among those Bracco met with was Jeanna Mastrodicasa,
assistant vice president for student affairs.
Mastrodicasa said she thinks the
Student idea is worth a discussion, but she is
rnment unsure what faculty feedback will be
to the idea.
One issue, she said, is making sure classes that meet on
Wednesday aren't adversely affected by the decision.
"If we did get rid of a Wednesday, they'd have to make
sure they have another teaching day," Mastrodicasa said.
And the change wouldn't.happen overnight.
"The academic calendar is set pretty far in advance,"
Mastrodicasa said.
"We're talking certainly not this fall but somewhere
down the road."
Bracco told senators that if approved by the adminis-
tration, the travel day could be in place by 2013, although
a change before that is possible.
UF wouldn't be the first school to give the Wednesday
before Thariksgiving off, he said.
Seven of the 15 schools in the SEC currently have the

Elections see low turnout from

PRIMARY, from page 1

Denise Ferrero led the county
judge race with about 45 percent
of the vote. The race will go to a
run-off to determine a majority

Judges must be elected with
a majority vote, meaning 50 per-
cent of the votes, plus one vote
minimum.
Turnout in the election was
low, especially at the Reitz Union
polling place, where most on-
campus students are assigned to
vote.
Poll workers reported midway
through the day that they had
seen fewer than 10 voters.

SEC Preview: Tennessee Volunteers


ON OFFENSE: Tennessee should feel disrespected. Most people
seem to forget the Volunteers were the East Division representative
Ih the Southeastern Conference Championship Game in December.
Instead, Tennessee is getting overlooked thanks to the flashier Georgia
and UF teams. But anyone would be' foolish to ignore this team. The
Volunteers return eight starters on offense including four of their five
offensive linemen, two receivers, their tight end and running back Arian
Foster. Foster should be one of the top backs in the league again and
make his senior year a memorable one. Expect him to gain more than
''.000 yards on the ground. The biggest hole for Tennessee is its new
signal caller, quarterback Jonathan Crompton. Crompton won the role
based largely on the fact that he's been in Knoxville longer than any
other quarterback on the roster. He'll have a tough time replacing
Erik Ainge at first, but his adaptation to the starting job is key to the
Volunteers offense.
ON DEFENSE: The Tennessee defense that gave up 59 points to UF
last season lost five players. That's bad enough. But when you realize
those five players were all in the top six for team tackles, you see the
Volunteers have some replacing to do. Chief among the departed is
middle linebacker Jerod Mayo. Senior Ellix Wilson will be the new man
in that spot, though his career resume of 40 games played with only one
start is much less impressive. When players get through Tennessee's
defensive line and linebackers, however, they'll have to deal with safety
Eric Berry. The sophomore had an outstanding five interceptions and
222 return yards in 2007, along with nine pass deflections, two fumble
recoveries and 86 total tackles. Both starting comers are also back for
the Volunteers, so it seems offenses should run on this team before
trying the passing game.
ROCK: Tennessee will rock because of a powerful running game, a
great corps of cornerbacks and safeties and a switch to a shotgun
spread-heavy offense.
ROLL: Tennessee will get rolled due to the jitters of a brand new
quarterback, an unforgiving schedule, a lack of experience on defense
and an overall talent level not good enough to win the SEC East.


IMPACT PLAYER: RB ARIAN FOSTER
Arian Foster has been at Tennessee for three years now, and he's going
on his third offensive coordinator.
With David Cutliffe leaving to coach lowly Duke, Dave Clawson became the
new man calling the plays.
"It's always fun to play under somebody different," the senior running back
said. "It's fun to see what you can do with somebody else's system."
Foster should be doing plenty.
The Volunteers will be using more four- and five-wide receiver sets this Fo
season, and Foster will be taking more handoffs from the shotgun.
His 14 touchdowns and 84 points scored were good for fourth in the SEC, showing he had no
problems adjusting to a new offense. His 1,193 rushing yards also put him in the No. 4 spot.
With the departure of Darren McFadden, Felix Jones and BenJarvus Green-Ellis from the
conference, Foster should up those rankings at least two spots.
He could nave bolted for the pros, but decided to give it another whirl in the orange and white.
"I was very close," Foster said. "Growing up, you have financial struggles,
and you have opportunity to help family out. It was hard to turn that down. but
I felt like one more year would do me and my family a lot more difference."
Odds are, he'll improve his draft stock and make the Volunteers a competitive force in the
SEC.

Former high school star hopes to step on field after nearly two-year hiatus


WILLIAMS, from page 24


With every grueling repetition, he tried to
rebuild shattered expectations.
Teammates called and family members
prayed, but nothing seemed to fill the empti-
ness inside of him.
"I had to watch everyone out there sweat
and get tired, and I was just sitting there,"
Williams said. "It was real hard on me."
Practice was tough, but the games were
harder.
Williams spent Saturdays with a pair of
silver crutches in his hands and a hole in his
heart.
The constant and deafening roar of the
crowd and the violent cashing of helmets -
even the profanity-laden screams of coaches
and teammates.
The same noises that had once played in
the soundtrack of his soul had become a con-
stant reminder of what had been so unfairly
taken away.
With every weekend Williams fell further
and further into obscurity, forced to watch as
Kestahn Moore, Percy Harvin and Brandon
James took the carries that were meant for
him.
"I didn't even want to go to the games," he
said. "It was like I was surrounded by 90,000


people, but I was all alone."
Again, Williams watched as the coaching
staff brought in Southern California transfer
Emmanuel Moody.
They wanted a bigger back, an every-down
back the same role that the 6-foot-i, 210-
pound Williams was recruited to play.
Burdened by doubt, the Mesquite, Texas
native wondered if his only opportunity to
play had been torn apart along with his knee.
But even when it seemed like his life had
fallen into the shadows, there was one per-
son who wouldn't let Williams give up on
himself.
Kestahn Moore reached out to Williams
during a time in his life when it felt like no one
else would.
"I told him that just because it wasn't his
time right now, it doesn't mean that it won't
come someday," Moore said. "God does
things for a reason."
Moore, who Williams describes as a big
brother, felt for his young teammate.
"He was doing really well during the off-
season making big plays Coach Meyer
was really starting to look at him," Moore said.
"Then, out of the blue, he got hurt. That has to
be a hard thing."
Moore wanted Williams to know he
wasn't alone.
Williams also received encouragement


from a place he didn't expect.
Moody, the same man that was seemingly
brought in to replace him, quickly became
the one he turned to for advice, prayer and
friendship.
After transferring from the Trojans, Moody
was forced to sit out the 2007 season. He soon
found he had quite a bit in common with the
injured Williams.
The two worked out together, studied
the playbook and forged a
friendship in the most un-
likely circumstances.
Moody, who plans to
become a minister one day,
did what he could to help
his new teammate recover
spiritually.
Williams "I told him that if he put
his trust in Jesus Christ, he
would make it through everything," Moody
said. "God gave him strength, and he has been
able to bounce back from it."
Williams is now fully healed.
Doctors have cleared him to play, and he
is once again out on the practice field with his
teammates.
But questions still race through his mind.
Will he ever be the same player he was
before the injury? How will his reconstructed
knee hold up to contact in a game? Will anoth-

er opportunity to start ever come around?
Running backs coach Kenny Carter said
before Williams can fight his way back into
the rotation, he is going to have to find tpe
answers.
"Physically he's fine but mentally if he
can jump that last hurdle he'll be OK," Carter.
said.
Despite his injury, Williams still feels like
the same player coaches begged to come to
UF the same player that was one wrong
step away from everything he had always
dreamed of.
It has been nearly two years since Williams
has played a down for the Gators. He hasn't
played a full season since his senior year at
Horn High, where he rushed for 1,672 yards
and scored 17 touchdowns. But Williams is
a long way from the starry Texas nights that
used to be his stage.
The lights have faded. The interviews have
all but stopped.
All that remains are the memories of those
nights and the burning desire to once again
feel the rush of fans and football.
"We always used to fight at practice about
who was the best player and stuff like that. But
it's not about that anymore for me," Williams
said. "I just want to prove that I can still help
this team that I still have something to
give."

SEC Preview: Auburn Tigers


ON OFFENSE: Atter years of being a running, possession-style offense,
the Tigers have finally decided to update their scheme, bringing in
*Tony Franklin as their new offensive coordinator. Auburn introduced
a simplified version of the offense in three weeks of practice before
the Chick-fil-A Bowl last season and scraped past Clemson 23-20 in
overtime. Coach Tommy Tuberville said at Southeastern Conference
Media Days in July that it's unlike any other team's spread offense
and cited a startling statistic the Tigers averaged 56 plays a game
during the regular season and then got in 90 plays in the bowl game.
That's a world of change, even with the overtime period. The biggest
questionn mark. however, remains at the quarterback position after
starter Brandon Cox left.

ON DEFENSE: Auourn brought in a new defensive coordinator as well,
Paul Rhoads, although the unit's scheme isn't expected to change very
much. The Tgers did lose standout lineman Quentin Groves, but will
likely feature another effective defensive line. Auburn returns its three
starting linebackers from a year ago. Strong safety Zac Ethendge is
back after a promising freshman campaign, and the secondary is deep
at both the corner and safety positions. Look for another traditional.
speedy Auourn defense.
ROCK: Auburn will rock because it finally has an offensive scheme
that matches the quality of its defensive one. and the rest of tne
SEC West is not as strong this year. The Tigers used to rely on their
defense to keep things close while the offense would grind things out
on the ground. In addition. Auburn gets LSU, Tennessee and Georgia
all at home wnile not having to face UF or Georgia. If the offense is
as proficient as Tuberille believes, this could be an entirely different
Auburn team.
ROLL: Auburn will get rolled because the new spread offense is a big
if. The largest concern will oe at the quarterback position. The Tigers
typically have a steady defense and special teams, and they may need
both if the offense goes through some growing pains in its new up-
tempo style.


IMPACT PLAYER: DE Sen'Derrick Marks
If there's one thing Sen'Derrick Marks is good at off the football field.
it's running his mouth.
"I like to talk," the 6-foot-1, 294-pound junior said. "I'll talk all day."
In fact, The Sporting News plans to have Marks write a blog, which will
be similar to a diary, for its Web site throughout the season. Not that
Marks kept a diary when he was younger.
"I grew up thinking diaries were for females." Marks said. "That
means I'm getting a little feminine right now because I'm writing a Marks
diary. ... I think it's supposed to show what goes on during the week during the season.
... It's tight. I just don't like being alone, being bored. I hate being bored."
All joking aside. Marks is expected to help anchor the defensive line, a unit that produced
22 sacks in 2007 including 8.5 from returning starter Antonio Coleman.
The junior couldn't help but take a jab at the Gators as well. Auburn has won two straight
against UF, but the schedule doesn't match them up in the regular season in 2008. But if
the two teams were to meet in Atlanta, Marks has already started the war of the words.
"I think that put a good win on our schedule every year that we played (tnemi." Marks said.
"We might see them in the end."

took a good chunk of bone in surgery.
He's looking pretty good right now. If
he's ready to play, he'll play."
Freshmari defensive tackle Matt
Patchan has returned from a tom pec-
toral muscle. Patchan was practicing
with the first-string defense during
spring until the injury.

BLOODY TUESDAY: On the day that's
called Bloody Tuesday, Meyer put his
team to the test in a scrimmage.


Meyer said the scrimmage lived up
to its aforementioned name.
"We gave them every possible look
we could," Meyer said; "We gave them
the most difficult looks to block."

ETC.: Center Maurkice Pouncey was
able to practice through a sprained
ankle... Offensive lineman Maurice
Hurt "dinged his shoulder," Meyer
said... Running back Mon Williams
is recovering from a sprained ankle.
Meyer called him a "battler."... Meyer
said the offensive line, especially tack-
les Jason Watkins and Phil Trautwein,
did very well at practice Wednesday.

go out there and stop other teams, there's
no way we're going to lose. We just need to
come together as a group. If all of us are suc-
cessful, there's no way we can fail."
The coaching staff is placing a lot of re-
sponsibility on him by implementing more
defensive sets that feature just three down
lineman, rather than the usual four.
"I approached this year like I'm a senior,


like there's no tomorrow," Marsh said. "I
know I can do these things. I just had to put
my mind to it and buckle down."
Coach Urban Meyer has certainly no-
ticed, but he still has just one
complaint.
As a fuzzy-bearded
Football Marsh entered the locker
room Tuesday, Meyer could
only joke.
"If I get him to shave, he'll be much bet-
ter," Meyer said.


SEC Preview: Mississippi State Bulldogs LO


ON OFFENSE: Mississippi State returns six starters on offense.
including Wesley Carroll, who started nine games as a freshman
last season. That stability will help the Bulldogs along with the
return of running backs Anthony Dixon and Christian Ducre. The
offensive line lost some starters from last year but replenished
with a lot of depth this season.


ON DEFENSE: The Bulldogs will have plenty of experience on
defense this season, returning eight starters. They did, however,
lose defensive ends Titus Brown and Avery Hannibal. Mississippi
State also lost its defensive coordinator after Ellis Johnson left,
but the position stayed in house as secondary coach Charlie
Harbison was promoted. The Bulldogs will have some ability to
gamble, however, with All-Southeastern Conference free safety
Derek Pegues patrolling the field. Pegues has nine interceptions
over the last two seasons.


ROCK: Mississippi State will rock because Carroll has a year.
under his belt and should have more experienced playmakers
around him. The Bulldogs get Auburn at home in week three with
a ESPN2 national television audience watching, and they could
have a chance to surprise some people.


ROLL: Mississippi State will get rolled because it will not be
able to sneak up on teams quite like it did last season, when
the Bulldogs finished 8-5 with upsets over Auburn and Alabama.
The pass rush will suffer from the loss of both defensive ends.
The offense must have more production through the skies from
Carroll or else defenses will line up eight men in the box to stop
the running attack.


IMPACT PLAYER: QB Wesley Carroll
Carroll knows if Mississippi .State is to repeat its success from last
season, he will have to step up as a more polished passer. .. .
He came in last season after starters Michael Henig and Josh .
Riddell went oown to injuries. The sophomore completed 134 of
255 passes for 1,392 yards and tnrew nine touchdowns against
seven interceptions.
"I feel [coach Sylvester Croom] put a lot more into my hands ... to Carroll
make more reads at the line of scrimmage," Carroll said. "We did that in the spring and
utilized a lot more of our speed at receiver."
The sophomore isn't fazed after facing criticism over his arm strength.
"It really doesn't bother me. If anything, it may be a little motivation." Carroll said.
"I'm not worried about people saying my body's the right size ... because in the west-
coast offense you don't have to have that gunslinger arm, you just have to have an
accurate, effective arm. More than anything it's mental as a quarterback playing in this
system."
All of this from a Fort Lauderdale native who now calls Starkville, Miss., home.
"It means a lot for a guy from South Florida to go to the middle of Mississippi." Carroll
said. "It's a big culture change. My instinct told me to come to Mississippi State and


can't complain."

Persistent Williams returns to Gators


By MIKE DIFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
S mdiferdinando@alligator.org

Mon Williams is a forgotten man.
Buried almost as deep on the depth chart as he
is in the minds of fans, Williams is left to wonder
what might have been.
A year ago, he was on the brink of stardom.
After rushing for 95 yards during UF's 62-0
rout of Western Carolina as a freshman in 2006,
Williams looked as if he was the answer to the
Gators' running back woes.
"After that, I really felt like I was going to get
that starting spot," he said with a smile as big as
the Dallas skyline tattooed on his right arm.
But that was then.
Williams tore his ACL during the first week
of spring practice while participating in a non-
contact drill.
"I was like, 'Damn, my whole ca-
reer is over.' I felt like I didn't have
nothing left."
Mon Williams
UF sophomore running back on his ACL tear

Even before the team doctor had a chance to
examine him, he knew his.season was over.
"As soon as it happened, I knew something
wasn't right," he said.
All he could do was watch as his dreams faded
away as quickly as they came. Humbled and
heartbroken, Williams learned how thin the line
between sideline and stardom really is.
'J. was like, 'Damn, my whole career is over,'"
Williams said. "I felt like I didn't have nothing
left."
Williams spent the better part of the next year
hobbling from his dorm room in the Springs
Complex to the UF weight room for long and
painful rehabilitation sessions.

Marsh's move to nose guard paying off


* THE SOPHOMORE HAS
EARNED A STARTING JOB.

By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Staff Writer
khyppolite@alligator.org

There's a certain point when
a talented prospect becomes
a great player. It's the point
where athletic ability meets
experience.
If you listen to the Gators
coaching staff, defensive tackle
Lawrence Marsh has reached
that point. The sophomore had
a minimal impact in 2007, as he


finished the year with just five
tackles and 0.5 sacks.
With UF struggling to get a
push up the middle last season,
Marsh was moved from defen-
sive end to defensive tackle in
an attempt to boost production
on the inside.
Defensive coordinator
Charlie Strong has said the
defensive line needed "some-
one who could move a body,"
and Marsh has found a way to
fill that role. And apparently it
came easy.
"It wasn't that big a differ-
ence because once I came here


I started getting bigger and
stronger," Marsh said. "Last
year I moved to defensive
tackle and this year at nose
guard, so as
long as I keep
working at it
I think I can
get better at
it."
Marsh
understands
Marsh last season's
defense often let down what
was one of the country's most
prolific offenses.
If the Gators are going


to make a serious run at a
Southeastern Conference title,
the defense needs to show vast
improvement.

Injuries


keep on


coming

By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

Urban Meyer must be getting
awfully tired of answering ques-
tions about injuries.
The preseason pains continued
to pile up for the Gators on Tuesday
when Meyer announced sophomore
offensive lineman Corey Hobbs is
sidelined with a neck injury. Meyer
did not know the severity of the in-
jury, though he said Hobbs was in
a neck brace.
"Well know
more a bit later,"
Meyer said.
Quarterback John
Football Brantley, who had
impressed Meyer
with his recent
progression, has a staph infection.
Meyer said he does expect Brantley
to practice today and be better for
Saturday's game against Hawaii.
Brantley is currently competing
with Cameron Newton for the
backup spot behind Tim Tebow.
"He looks like death warmed
over," Meyer said of Brantley.
"Painful? I don't know if it's pain-
ful. It doesn't affect his chances of
playing [Saturday]."
Stars Brandon Spikes and Percy
Harvin, however, are another story.
Their status is very much up in
the air. Spikes has a lingering foot
injury, and Harvin is still recover-
ing from off-season heel surgery.
If Spikes cannot play Saturday
against Hawaii, redshirtjunior Ryan
Stamper will start in his place.
Harvin practiced with the
team during seven-on-seven drills
Tuesday, but Spikes was unable to
practice.
Meyer admitted he thought
Harvin would have returned by
now.
"They shaved off some of his
heel when [the doctors] found out
he had abnormal growth on the
bone that was causing his issues
with tendonitis in his knees," Meyer

Recycdle Al GUS IT 2~7 20A0 VVLUIVIE 12 lSUE 3 WEDNtEA UF students flock to Moe's, Chi li's Too Harrison Diamond / Alligator Staff Customers are served at the new Moe's Southwest Grill in the Racquet Club Dining Center on Tuesday afternoon. 0 CUSTOMERS SPENT MORE THAN $11,000 THURSDAY. By THOMAS STEWART Alligator Contributing Writer The cash registers have been getting a workout at the new Moe's Southwest Grill and Chili's Too at the Racquet Club Dining Center. Even though many students complained about the lack of a kids' menu at Moe's, customers spent more than $11,000 at the two restaurants on Thursday, the only day for which figures were available, said Lionel Dubay, UF's director of business services, in an e-mail. This is considerably higher than the $3,000 earned on a typical day last year by the six eateries that previously occupied the building, including Burger King and Java City, Dubay said. UF receives 10.4 percent of the money from all campus food sales. The two restaurants, which debuted Aug. 17, will employ about 110 people, compared to the 18 employees who worked at the previous stores, Dubay said. He said one of the reasons for the larger staff is that the restaurants have longer hours. The hours for both locations are 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Wednesday and 10:30 a.m. to midnight Thursday through Saturday. The opening of the two restaurants caps a two-year On process that was introCampuS duced to the public in fall 2006 when students voted on a referendum asking if they wanted a Moe's on campus. Almost 87 percent of the more than 7,000 students who voted approved the referendum. As a result, Bob Miller, UF's associate vice president of business affairs, wrote a letter to Aramark, UF's food service provider, asking it to look into the possibility of bringing a Moe's to UF. SEE MOES, PAGE 11 STUDENT GOVERNMENT Students to vote on longer Thanksgiving holiday By JACQUELYN WEINER Alligator Writer The Wednesday before Thanksgiving isn't an official UF holiday, but some members of UF's Student Senate think it should be. In its first meeting of the fall semester Tuesday, senators passed a resolution that will allow students to vote on making that Wednesday an official UF holiday during Student Government elections Oct. 7-8. The logic behind the ballot referendum is that students can use that Wednesday as a travel day to get home in time for Thanksgiving. Frank Bracco, former Chomp the Vote director, co-authored the resolution. "They're not going to school that day anyway, and most professors have it off," "I think this is a great bipartisan thing we can all work on together and look forward to." Kellie Dale Senate president Bracco said. Senate President Kellie Dale voiced her support of the resolution as well. "I think this is a great bipartisan thing we can all work on together and look forward to," Dale said. While the senators passed the resolution unanimously, and it is expected to be popular among student voters, it is still unknown whether members of the Faculty Senate's Curriculum Committee, SEE SENATE, PAGE 11 Alachua County primaries determine sheriff, appraiser 0 SADIE DARNELL RETAINS JOB AS SHERIFF. By KATIE GALLAGHER Alligator Staff Writer Alachua County's sheriff and property appraiser held onto their positions in Tuesday's local primary election. Sheriff Sadie Darnell defeated Lonnie Scott with more than 60 percent of Tuesday's vote. She said she planned to focus on community policing and jail overcrowding. "I'm going to continue the momentum and accomplish the mission that has been set in place," Darnell said. Ed Crapo, Alachua County property appraiser, also retained his seat, earning more than 65 percent of the vote in Victor Perkins. The property appraiser determines the values of homes and researches what buyers are willing to pay for them. The election also established Republican Don Curtis and Democrat Julie Conley as nominees for District 10 state repreTuesday's race against Alonzo sentative. County Commissioner Mike Byerly earned the Democratic nomination for District 1 County Commission seat, defeating Rick Bryant -a former Gainesville city commissioner.

4, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 27, 2008 UF gyms get-Wi-Fi E OFFICIALS SAY WI-FI WILL ATTRACT STUDENTS. By THOMAS STEWART Alligator Contributing Writer The air at UF's campus gyms is now filled with more than just the scent of students' sweat, thanks to newly installed wireless Internet. The Internet routers are installed at Southwest Recreation Center and the Student Recreation and Fitness Center, as well as the Southwest Rec softball complex, said David Bowles, director of Recreational Sports. Bowles said making wireless Internet available to students might make them more interested in coming to the gym. He said being able to check emails or do homework before or after workouts will help students save time during the day. The wireless Internet was installed over the last few weeks and did not cost UF any extra money because it was installed at the same time as a new Internetbased phone system, said David Stopka, UF's associate director for facility operations. Students can store their laptops in gym lockers, Bowles said. Included in the upcoming renovations of Southwest Rec, which are scheduled to be completed by spring 2011, are plans to add more "social space," which will make it easier for students to use the Internet, he said. Other planned renovations include adding elliptical machines that generate electricity when used and increasing the number of treadmills. Bowles said students involved "I would rather have better Wi-Fi at the dorms. It just seems kind of pointless for a gym." Sarah Arrazola UF freshman in intramural sports can check their teams' schedules online and communicate with teammates while at the fields. Mark Fike, a UF physical therapy graduate student, said wireless Internet at the gym is a great idea. Fike said he will probably use it after working out during his cool-down period before heading to class. Other students were more skeptical. "I would rather have better Wi-Fi at the dorms," said .Sarah Arrazola, a UF freshman. "It just seems kind of pointless for a gym. 1 Freshman Kara Brock agreed. "I use the gym to get away from the computer," Brock said. UF emergency texts succeed By BRETT DALY Alligator Writer When Tropical Storm Fay forced officials to close UF on Friday, the university's emergencynotification system was put to its first real test after undergoing two practice runs in spring. Steve Orlando, UF spokesman, said the system was largely successful in notifying students, faculty and staff Thursday about stalled residence hall move-in dates and the campus's closing. However, the system, which includes text messaging, e-mails, Web posts and reverse-911 calls, still needs a little UF tweaking. Ad inA station Of more than 71,000 numbers in the system, 48,823 phones received the emergency alert successfully, Orlando said. About 18,600 messages were not received, and the status of almost 4,000 messages cannot be determined, he said. Orlando said the reasons for the unsuccessful messages have not been confirmed, but possible factors include students incorrectly entering their cell phone numbers when providing their contact information, entering a landline instead of a cell phone, not having text messaging on cell-phone plans or being out of range when the message was sent. He said students who did not. receive the message should check their contact information online. Sara Ajluni, a UF journalism senior, said she thinks the text message alerts are a convenient way to receive information, but the last message didn't affect her since she wasn't in Gainesville at the time. The message was also the first one she received. Ajluni didn't receive the two tests the university sent out. "I was happy because I actually got them this time," she said. "I think it would be efficient in other situations, too." In addition to the text message, the university also sent out e-mails to students informing them of UF closing for the storm and posted the message on the UF home page. Orlando said more than 84,000 e-mails were sent out, and the vast majority were sent in about 20 minutes. Ashley Condell, a freshman, was one of the students who had to rely on her e-mail instead of text messaging to find out if UF had closed from the storm. Because classes were not in session, Condell said it didn't bother her that she didn't receive the message even though she said she updated her information online. Orlando said he is confident everyone received the information through at least one of the system's notifications. UF first considered implementing a text-messaging alert system during the 2004 hurricane season, Orlando said. Two tests of the system were conducted during the spring semester, and Orlando said more tests would be conducted throughout the term. Offer iM from d,,o ,i4 ,' [974 :t at LD

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 27, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 5 SANTA FE COLLEGE OBT may take action against SFC textbook policy By SARAH HENDERSON Alligator Contributing Wrter Officials from Orange and Blue Textbooks and SEC are debating students' rights to know their textbook options in Gainesville. SFC's textbook contract with Barnes & Noble prohibits OBT from advertising in the school paper or handing out fliers and coupons to students on their way to class. The store, located at 309 NW 13th St., began providing books to SFC students in 2007. "I can't tell if it's a school campus or a police state," said Kenneth Roberts, president of OBT, who said he was told his flier distributors would be arrested next time. Larry Keen, assistant to the president at SFC, said all commercial solicitors are prohibited at the college unless contracted through the school -a "collegewide policy written in black and white." The school holds an exclusive contract with Barnes & Noble, Keen said. Any textbook vendor "Barnes & Noble is wanting a monopoly, and the Santa Fe administration seems to be catering to that." Jorelle Bobbitt director of obt campus relations w as allowed to make a bid on the contract with the college's bookstore, he said, and contracts usually last three years. "It's unfair," said Jorelle Bobbitt, director of OBT campus relations. "Students are not getting their right to have options." But Keen said the contract does not infringe on that right. "Students have the right to go elsewhere for textbooks," he said. OBT representatives don't see it that way. Bobbitt said she doesn't understand why fliers can be distributed at UF and not SFC. "Barnes & Noble is wanting a monopoly, and the Santa Fe administration seems to be catering to that," Bobbitt said. Roberts said the bookstore has recently been unable to receive course schedules, book lists and other assistance from Santa Fe faculty and staff. One of SFC's attorneys also requested that an OBT television commercial be taken off the air because it contained footage of the school's campus, Bobbitt said. Roberts said he is considering legal action. "A level playing field is all we want," he said, "which is what is supposed to be there." Pro-Obama student group registers thousands to vote N CHOMP THE VOTE AND MCCAIN GROUP DON'T RELEASE NUMBERS. By RACHEL ARROYO Alligator Writer UF students can watch the debates, sport red and blue or participate in discussion over presidential policy, but one question remains: Will they make it to the polls? Campus groups such as Gators for McCain, UF's chapter of Students for Barack Obama and UF's Chomp the Vote are seeking to ensure that they do. Volunteers for Students for Barack Obama were on campus Monday handing out voter registration forns and urging students to change their voting precinct to Alachua County. On Monday, the organization registered 2,533 voters, which includes already registered voters who changed their precinct to Alachua County, said Garrett Gamer, the chapter's co-coordinator. What began as a challenge between the mayors of both Tallahassee and Gainesville to see which university could register the most voters in one day became a mini challenge between the Florida State University and UF chapters of Students for Barack Obama, Garner said. UF's chapter mobilized nearly three times the amount of students as FSU, which registered about 900 students on On Monday, Gamer said. CampUS He said the organization's approach wasn't to persuade students to vote in a certain direction but on registering anyone and everyone. Gators for McCain Tias taken a different approach during the first few days of class, choosing to stress platform issues over regis: tration, said volunteer Joshua Simmons. Simmons declined to say how many voters the group had registered so far. Gators for McCain is also looking to put manpower into the Alachua County local campaign as opposed to placing all of their emphasis on students, Simmons said. "We're not as worried about people changing their addresses as making sure that they're going to vote," he said. Chomp the Vote Director Brett Roth said he didn't have the number of students his organization registered. However, he said Chomp the Vote has put up 7,600 fliers, taken out advertisements on WUFT-TV and spoken to professors who teach large lecture halls.

6, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 27, 2008 Editorial Blowing smoke Senate's travel holiday gives false hope he UF Student Senate passed a referendum Tuesday night to give us the chance to vote on having an extra day off from classes. Yay! The Thanksgiving Travel Day Bill, if effective, would let students vote on if they want to cancel classes the Wednesday before Turkey Day so students can travel home for the holidays without missing any class time. And would you believe it only took one reading to pass? We're sure that everyone would love an extra day at home with their families before finals and our annual gridiron beatdown of Florida State, but a Senate referendum alone will not get us there. Jeanna Mastrodicasa, assistant vice president for student affairs, said she didn't know if faculty would be supportive, and UF spokesman Steve Orlando said UF President Machen probably wouldn't go for it anyway. Seems to us that a bill like this serves primarily to maintain the self-esteem of the Senate and cram hollow, happy thoughts into the student body's collective mind. It would be extremely difficult to feel guilty for introducing a bill that would give students a breather as the semester dwindles to crunch time. However, if this referendum is not backed by UF's administration, it lacks any real substance and merit. The Editorial Board does not want to see its readers' heads filled with hot air. There's no reason to build us up just to let us down. If we really enjoyed being disappointed, we would've continued to apply to MIT at the behest of our glue-sniffing high school guidance counselors, despite our non-existent SAT math scores. All we're saying is we want the Senate's actions to be both practical and possible. Wi-Fi while you work? e've suffered far too long waiting for the Internet to find its way to our gyms, one of the few remaining nooks where Wi-Fi isn't readily available. It seems that our days of Weblessly toiling on the treadmills at Southwest Recreation Center have come to an end at last, though -we aren't sure why. We are addicted to our'email and Facebook accounts as much as anyone else at UF, but do we really need to bring our vices to the gym? Are we 'supposed to update our online status from "blasting our glutes" to "sweating off 'Beat the Clock'" as we move from the squat rack to the cardio room? We just can't wait to see the increase in Southwest Rec's iPod touch and iPhone population. Tired of the weight room's afternoon techno thump-thump? We've got your solution. "Hey man, I need a sec before I do my last set. I've gotta finish downloading this new Colbie Caillat track. It freakin' rocks." Maybe it's a bit of a stretch, but to us, the combination of high-speed Internet and high testosterone levels is laughable. As always, UP has managed to find a ray of optimism in our black cloud of doubt, stating that the recent installation may encourage students to scurry to the gym amidst their hectic midday schedules. As a plus, the addition didn't cost UF any extra money. Hopefully the money UF didn't spend could fund relief efforts for laptops and iPhones that fall victim to sweaty palms and stray dumbbells. 0l fl -in d e p 'e mi t n o rm a alligator Jessica DaSilva Adam Wynn EDITOR OPINIONS EDITOR Hilary Lehman MANAGING EDITOR The Alligator encourages comments from readers.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 27, 2008 K ALLIGATOR, 7 isthe Edi New IDs present identity risk In 2005, Congress approved a bill calling for emergency funds to aid in tsunami relief efforts. Unfortunately, tacked onto the bill was what is called the Real ID Act. This sets federal standards for driver's licenses that states are mandated to comply with by December 2009. These cards would create huge new risks for identity fraud. One of the requirements of the act is for DMVs to store digital images of several documents containing information on birth, Social Security numbers and other personal data.

To avoid these risks and costs, it is important that Florida citizens pressure their lawmakers to join other states, including Georgia, Oklahoma and Washington, in refusing to implement these changes.

8, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 27, 2008 -Sinkholes start as small caves underground or narrow cavities called chimneys. -Most sinkholes expand due to extreme weather conditions, such a a drought or hurricane. -Florida is hometo the most sinkholes in the country; most of Florida's lakes began as sinkholes. -The reason for the large number of sinkholes is Florida's karst topographythe entire state's land is formed by disintegrated rocks, specifically limestone. -Rains go into the ground and wash away the limestone, then the rainstorm pushes dirt into the hole -If you spot something abnormal, such as a hole or dip in the ground, call the Florida Department of Transportation at 1800-749-2967 and ask for maintenance. 7AIlIigator Staff Sinkholes appear after Fay By ASHLEY HEMMY Alligator Contributing Writer Tropical Storm Fay has left behind a mess to clean up in the form of two sinkholes that have closed lanes on Interstate 10. The smaller of the sinkholes, which were both discovered Sunday, continues to block a westbound lane on 1-10 in Suwannee County. The larger has closed an eastbound lane in Madison County, and it measures 180 feet long, 55 feet wide and about 25 feet deep. "Luckily, traffic hasn't been too heavy," said Gina Busscher, Florida Department of Transportation spokeswoman. .Sinkholes form during droughts or heavy rain when limestone beneath the surface wears away. This forms a pocket, which causes the ground to cave in. Florida is especially prone to sinkholes because the state's bedrock predominantly consists of limestone. Emergency crews are working to fill the cavities Start of fall semester sparks bicycle repair spike at Reitz 0 STUDENT GOVERNMENT PLANS FOR NEW FACILITY. By JACQUELYN WEINER Alligator Writer With the beginning of each semester comes a rush to start anew -bicycles included. Students have been forming tines outside the Student Government Bike Repair station outside the Reitz Union during the first few days of class, anticipating free care for their two-wheeled vehicles. "Yesterday was nuts," said Ernie Quincosa, an employee at the repair station, about Monday's traffic. "When I was working here for one hour, I'd say 20,25 people came in." Scott Powers, another bike repair employee, said the long lines are the norm for the beginning of the semester and are partly caused by the bike repair team's lack of a manager, which has forced them to reorganize. The lines were similarly long on Tuesday, with 12 students waiting with their bikes about 15 minutes before the repair shop's 3 p.m. closing time. Student Body Treasurer Paul Drayton acknowledged there are problems with the repair shop and said SG plans to build an entirely new facility. "Right now, it's not sufficient," Drayton said. He said the facility will be enclosed with glass walls, and SG has allocated $80,000 dollars to the project. "Hopefully, that will get under way in the near future," Drayton said. The repair shop was criticized this time last year for not staffing enough workers during the back-toschool rush. Workers at the bike repair are employed by SG and are paid about $7 an hour, Quincosa said. He said there are usually two employees staffing the bike repair, but those roles aren't set in stone. John Remington, a sixth-year Spanish major, said he had been in line for an hour waiting to get the chain on his bicycle fixed. "Every time I've been here before, just walked right in," Remington said. "Took care of it." UF student Corey Raphael waits in line at the Student Government Bike Repair station to have his bicycle seat replaced Tuesday. *0 I A% Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers with a combination of cement, sand and water. In the meantime, the smaller sinkhole has been covered with dirt. "We believe that the rains from Tropical Storm Fay led to the uncovering of dirt layers," Busscher said. Neither sinkhole formed directly under a roadway, but past sinkholes have been more destructive. "A few years ago, a larger sinkhole formed on a lane on 1-75," said Busscher. Gainesville has its own sinkholes, but most are smaller and eventually settle as ponds. "Sinkholes in Gainesville rarely cause problems," said Sgt. Joe Raulerson of the Gainesville Police Department. Because Gainesville has the same topography as the rest of Florida, there is always a chance for a sinkhole to form, said Mark Brenner, UF geology professor. Counties such as Suwannee are more vulnerable to sinkholes because of the larger number of ponds and lakes, Brenner said.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 27, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 9 Elevator smoke sets off alarm A smoking elevator set off fire alarms at the Computer Science Engineering building Tuesday, clearing out the CIRCA Lab for about half an hour. An elevator technician was called in immediately to fix the problem: a worn-out shaft belt that generated smoke. The elevator was empty at the time. If people had been in it, they probably would just have been stuck between floors, said University Police Officer Sam Sexton. "It wouldn't drop like in the movies," On Sexton said. 'lMPUS Students using the lab computers said they were inconvenienced by the alarm. Nadeige Thomas, a UF sophomore, said the alarm went off four minutes before her allotted time to register for classes. "I could lose my seat," Thomas said. Freshman Neel Patel, who was about to check his schedule, was left with no idea where or when his next class was. "It kind of screwed up everything for me," Patel said. Members of Gainesville Fire Rescue exit the Computer Science Engineering building. The Fire Rescue checked the building after a fire alarm was set off Tuesday afternoon. AROUND GAINESVILLE Sun to merge with Star-Banner By KELSI KRIEGER Alligator Contributing Writer The New York Times Company announced Monday that two of its publications, The Gainesville Sun and the Ocala Star-Banner, will merge several operations. Copy editing, design and page layouts for both newspapers will be done in Gainesville, and Jim Osteen, the executive editor of The Gainesville Sun, will now act as executive editor for both papers. Robyn Tomlin, former executive editor of the Star-Banner, recently accepted a position at another New York Times newspaper in Wilmington,'N.C. There were two motives behind the merge, StarBanner Publisher Allen Parsons said -to cut costs and to be more efficient and competitive. Tom McNiff, the managing editor for the StarBanner, said the change was not unusual. "We're not the only two papers in the nation to do this," McNiff said. "Producing both papers with one desk will achieve some cost efficiencies and will leave us both very strong papers." Each staff's reporters will continue to gather news, and the newspapers will retain their separate titles and personalities. "Producing both papers with one desk will achieve some cost efficiencies and will leave us both very strong papers." Tom McNiff managing editor for the Star-Banner "The Gainesville Sun has a much younger audience, and we'll try to reflect the news to the very different readerships," McNiff said. Learning how to produce two newspapers in one place may be a challenge, he said. "Any time you make a significant change, there are questions and uncertainties," he said. "But so far, so good."

10, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 27, 2008 ON CAMPUS Turlington gets upgraded for looks, convenience By LAUREN BAKER Alligator Writer Some Turlington Hall classrooms may be known for function rather than aesthetic appeal, but three of the building's large lecture halls received a makeover this summer. The lecture halls -L-005, L-007 and L-011 -debuted a fresh, modernized look for classes Monday after being closed since May. The project missed its original deadline of July 31, but the halls were ready for classes Monday, said Harold Barrand, associate director of architecture and engineering at UF's Physical Plant Division. The division, which was in charge of the project, faced a tight deadline to rip up and replace the carpets, ceilings, wall finishes, chairs and desks, Barrand said. Improvements to Turlington Lecture halls now meet American Disabilities Act standards -Each lecture hall received new carpeting and flooring -Revamped air vents -Fresh tan-colored paint on the walls e New permanent seats and wider desks A major part of the project was bringing the rooms up to Americans with Disabilities Act standards that were put into effect after Turlington Hall opened in 1977. New features of the restored classrooms include improved accessibility for handicapped students, with sloped flooring around the perimeter of the room and down the aisles, as well as desks without an attached seat in the back and front of the classrooms. "[Turlington] was a bit messy there for a while, but it cleaned up nice, you know?" Harold Barrand associate director of architecture and engineering at UF's Physical Plant Division Barrand said the new style and facilities brought the frequently used lecture halls into the new millennium. "We're real proud of Turlington," he said. "It was a bit messy there for a while, but it cleaned up nice, you know?" Along with an orange-streaked carpet and new flooring, the project included adding new projectors and a restored air duct system. UF's Department of Academic Technology set aside $1.2 million to pay for the upgrades. The renovations have received mixed reviews from UF students attending class in the lecture halls. Shitarria Battle, a mechanical engineering senior, said she noticed the new classroom smell, but the renovations weren't impressive. "As long as I can see what the professor is writing on the board, I don't really care how comfortable the chair is," Battle said. Other students leaving the rooms praised the improved lighting, crisp air conditioning and spa-cious desk area. UF sophomore Justin Ritchey, said he hated skating to his morning class last spring semester because room L-007 was so hot inside. Plus, the tiny desks attached to the seats did not fit a laptop. Comfortably sitting in a new chair with his laptop open on a wide table, Ritchey said he even appreciated the bland color splashing the walls. "The color may be a pretty plain tan, but it looks nice," he said. Ermitte St. Jacques, a teaching assistant for the introduction to communications class, speaks with students in one of the renovated lecture halls inside Turlington Hall on Tuesday.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 27, 2008 E ALLIGATOR, 11 Kid's menus not included at Moe's because UF students too old MOES, from page 1 Chili's Too was suggested in later discussions between Aramark and UF's food service committees. The UF Moe's is the first one on a college campus, according to a Moe's spokeswoman. Brittney Davidson, a UF business junior, said she is excited about the two new restaurants. "You can definitely tell it's a lot busier," Davidson said while eating a meal from Moe's on Tuesday afternoon. However, she said she misses the kids' menu, which was omitted from the oncampus Moe's menu. "We're college students. We like to get our cheap kid's meal," she said. Jill Rodriguez, spokeswoman for Gator Dining Services, wrote in an e-mail that "We're college students. We like to get our cheap kid's meal." Brittney Davidson UF business junior kids' menus were not included because they are geared toward children under 12, which is not their customer base. Another complaint made by students was that the restaurants do not offer free drink refills. Rodriguez wrote that Gator Dining Services has an on-campus drink refill program that allows students to purchase reusable 32-ounce cups. The cup and drink cost $1.99 initially. Refills are $1.29 at any on-campus location that sells fountain drinks. Moe's and Chili's will begin participating in the drink refill program this week, she wrote. Senators pass resolution unanimously; faculty reaction still unsure SENATE, from page 1 which makes UF's academic calendar, will be in favor of the travel day. Steve Orlando, UF spokesman, said he doubted administration would be in favor of such a move. However, Bracco said representatives from five departments in Tigert Hall that he met with seemed interested, as long as students showed significant interest. ."They all were very receptive to the idea," Bracco said. Among those Bracco met with was Jeanna Mastrodicasa, assistant vice president for student affairs. Mastrodicasa said she thinks the Student idea is worth a discussion, but she is Goverillneiat unsure what faculty feedback will be to the idea. One issue, she said, is making sure classes that meet on Wednesday aren't adversely affected by the decision. "If we did get rid of a Wednesday, they'd have to make sure they have another teaching day," Mastrodicasa said. And the change wouldn't happen overnight. "The academic calendar is set pretty far in advance," Mastrodicasa said. "We're talking certainly not this fall but somewhere down the road.". Bracco told senators that if approved by the administration, the travel day could be in place by 2013, although a change before that is possible. UF wouldn't be the first school to give the Wednesday before Thanksgiving off, he said. Seven of the 15 schools in the SEC currently have the Wednesday before Thanksgiving or the full week off, Bracco said. The University of Arkansas, Mississippi State garrison uiamona / Amingaor brar Former Chomp the Vote director Frank Bracco speaks about a resolution to-let students vote on making the Wednesday before Thanksgiving a UF holiday at Tuesday night's Senate meeting. University and the University of South Carolina have no classes the Wednesday before Thanksgiving Day, according to the resolution. Auburn University, the University of Georgia and the University of Mississippi have no classes the entire week of Thanksgiving, according to the resolution. Elections see low turnout from students at Reitz Union Harrison Diamond / Alligator Staff A man walks by a voting sign at the Reitz Union Tuesday afternoon. The Reitz was a polling site for Tuesday's elections. PRIMARY, from pagel1 Denise Ferrero led the county judge race with about 45 percent of the vote. The race will go to a run-off to determine a majority winner. Judges must be elected with a majority vote, meaning 50 percent of the votes, plus one vote minimum. Turnout in the election was low, especially at the Reitz Union polling place, where most oncampus students are assigned to vote. Poll workers reported midway through the day that they had seen fewer than 10 voters. "Particularly the second day of classes when the races are school board and county judge, you just don't get a lot of turnout," poll clerk Jeff Feller said. Assistant clerk Marilyn Tubb agreed. "Particularly the second day of classes when the races are school board and county judge, you just don't get a lot of turnout." Jeff Feller poll clerk "We get a lot of younger newer students who don't have the connections to Alachua County," Tubb said. Poll workers said they expected to see a much higher turnout at the next election Nov. 4. Voters must register by Oct. 6 to participate in the Nov. 4 election. Early voting begins Oct. 20.

ON OFFENSE: Tennessee should feel disrespected. Most people seem to forget the Volunteers were the East Division representative in the Southeastern Conference Championship Game in December. Instead, Tennessee is getting overlooked thanks to the flashier Georgia and UF teams. But anyone would be'foolish to ignore this team. The Volunteers return eight starters on offense including four of their five offensive linemen, two receivers, their tight end and running back Arian Foster. Foster should be one of the top backs in the league again and, make his senior year a memorable one. Expect him to gain more than ,000 yards on the ground. The biggest hole for Tennessee is its new signal caller, quarterback Jonathan Crompton. Crompton won the role based largely on the fact that he's been in Knoxville longer than any other quarterback on the roster. -He'll have a tough time replacing Erik Ainge at first, but his adaptation to the starting job is key to the Volunteers offense. ON DEFENSE: The Tennessee defense that gave up 59 points to UF last season. lost five players. That's bad enough. But when you realize those five players were all in the top six for team tackles, you see the Volunteers have some replacing to do. Chief among the departed is riddle linebacker Jerod Mayo. Senior Ellix Wilson will be the new man inthat spot, though his career resume of 40 games played with only one start is much less impressive. When players get through Tennessee's defensive line and linebackers, however, they'll have to deal with safety Eric Berry. The sophomore had an outstanding five interceptions and 222 return yards in 2007, along with nine pass deflectforIs, two fumble, recoveries, and 86 total tackles. Both starting corners are also back for the Volunteers, so it seems offenses should run on this team before trying the passing game. ROCK: Tennessee will rock because of a powerful running game, a great corps of cornerbacks and safeties and a switch to a shotgun spread-heavy offense. ROLL: Tennessee will get rolled due to the jitters of a brand new quarterback, an unforgiving schedule, a lack of experience on defense and an overall talent level not good enough to win the SEC East. IMPACT PLAYER: RB ARIAN FOSTER Arian Foster has been at Tennessee for three years now, and he's going on his third offensive coordinator. With David Cutliffe leaving to coach lowly Duke, Dave Clawson became the new man calling the plays. "It's always fun to play under somebody different,"' the senior running back said. ,"it's fun to see what you can do with somebody else's system." Foster shoulder doing plenty. The Volunteers will be using more fourand five-wide receiver sets this Foster season, and Foster will be taking more handoffs from the shotgun. His 14 touchdowns and 84 points scored were good for fourth in the SEC, showing he had no problems adjusting to a new offense. His 1,193 rushing yards also put him in the No. 4 spot. With the departure of Darren McFadden, Felix Jones and BenJarvus Green-Ellis from the conference, Foster should up those rankings at least two spots. He could have bolted for the pros, but decided to give it another whirl in the orange and white. "I was very close," Foster said. "Growing up, you have financial struggles, and you have opportunity to help family out. It was hard to turn that down, but I felt like one more year would do me and my family a lot more difference." Odds are, he'll improve his draft stock and make the SEC.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 27, 2008 E ALLIGATOR, 21 Former high school star hopes to step on field after nearly two-year hiatus WILLIAMS, from page 24 With every grueling repetition, he tried to rebuild shattered expectations. Teammates called and family members prayed, but nothing seemed to fill the emptiness inside of him. "I had to watch everyone out there sweat and get timd, and I was just sitting there," Williams said. "It was real hard on me." Practice was tough, but the games were harder. Williams spent Saturdays with a pair of silver crutches in his hands and a hole in his heart. The constant and deafening roar of the crowd and the violent clashing of helmets even the profanity-laden screams of coaches and teammates. The same noises that had once played in the soundtrack of his soul had become a constant reminder of what had been so unfairly taken away With every weekend Williams fell further and further into obscurity, forced to watch as Kestahn Moore, Percy Harvin and Brandon James took the carries that were meant for him. "I didn't even want to go to the games," he said. "It was like I was surrounded by 90,000 people, but I was all alone." Again, Williams watched as the coaching staff brought in Southern California transfer Emmanuel Moody. They wanted a bigger back, an every-down back -the same role that the 6-foot-1, 210pound Williams was recruited to play. Burdened by doubt, the Mesquite, Texas native wondered if his only opportunity to play had been torn apart along with his knee. But even when it seemed like his life had fallen into the shadows, there was one person who wouldn't let Williams give up on himself. Kestahn Moore reached out to Williams -during a time in his life when it felt like no one else would. "I told him that just because it wasn't his time right now, it doesn't mean that it won't come someday," Moore said. "God does things for a reason." Moore, who Williams describes as a big brother, felt for his young teammate. "He was doing really well during the offseason -making big plays -Coach Meyer was really starting to look at him," Moore said. "Then, out of the blue, he got hurt. That has to be a hard thing." Moore wanted Williams to know he wasn't alone. Williams also received encouragement from a place he didn't expect. Moody, the same man that was seemingly brought in to replace him, quickly became the one he turned to for advice, prayer and friendship. After transferring from the Trojans, Moody was forced to sit out the 2007 season. He soon found he had quite a bit in common with the injured Williams. The two worked out together, studied the playbook and forged a friendship in the most unlikely circumstances. Moody, who plans to become a minister one day, did what he could to help his new teammate recover ;W ASM spiritually. Williams "I told him that if he put his trust in Jesus Christ, he would make it through everything," Moody said. "God gave him strength, and he has been able to bounce back from it." Williams is now fully healed. Doctors have cleared him to play, and he is once again out on the practice field with his teammates. But questions still race through his mind. Will he ever be the same player he was before the injury? How will his reconstructed knee hold up to contact in a game? Will another opportunity to start ever come around? Running backs coach Kenny Carter said before Williams can fight his way back into the rotation, he is going to have to find tle answers. "Physically he's fine but mentally -if he can jump that last hurdle he'll be OK," Carter said. Despite his injury, Williams still feels like the same player coaches begged to come to UF -the same player that was one wrong step away from everything he had always dreamed of. It has been nearly two years since Williams has played a down for the Gators. He hasn't played a full season since his senior year at Horn High, where he rushed for 1,672 yards and scored 17 touchdowns. But Williams is a long way from the starry Texas nights that used to be his stage. The lights have faded. The interviews have all but stopped. All that remains are the memories of those nights and the burning desire to once again feel the rush of fans and football. "We always used to fight at practice about who was the best player and stuff like that. But it's not about that anymore for me," Williams said. "I just want to prove that I can still help this team -that I still have something to give." on Campus!

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 27, 2008 E ALLIGATOR, 23 Pouncey practices despite sprain | NOTES, from page 24 said. "They went to North Carolina and took a good chunk of bone in surgery. He's looking pretty good right now. If he's ready to play, he'll play." Freshman defensive tackle Matt Patchan has returned from a torn pectoral muscle. Patchan was practicing with the first-string defense during spring until the injury. BLOODY TUESDAY: On the day that's called Bloody Tuesday, Meyer put his team to the test in a scrimmage. Meyer said the scrimmage lived up to its aforementioned name. "We gave them every possible look we could," Meyer said: "We gave them the most difficult looks to block." ETC.: Center Maurkice Pouncey was able to practice through a sprained ankle. Offensive lineman Maurice Hurt "dinged his shoulder," Meyer said. Running back Mon Williams is recovering from a sprained ankle. Meyer called him a "battler.". Meyer said the offensive line, especially tackles Jason Watkins and Phil Trautwein, did very well at practice Wednesday. Three-lineman sets challenge soph. MARSH, from page 24 go out there and stop other teams, there's no way we're going to lose. We just need to come together as a group. If all of us are successful, there's no way we can fail." The coaching staff is placing a lot of responsibility on him by implementing more defensive sets that feature just three down lineman, rather than the usual four. "I approached this year like I'm a senior, like there's no tomorrow," Marsh said. "I know I can do these things. I just had to put my mind to it and buckle down." Coach Urban Meyer has certainly noticed, but he still has just one complaint. As a fuzzy-bearded Football Marsh entered the locker room Tuesday, Meyer could only joke. "If I get him to shave, he'll be much better," Meyer said. SEC Preview: MissiSSili ON OFFENSE: Mississippi State returns six starters on offense, including Wesley Carroll, who started nine games as a freshman last season. That stability will help the Bulldogs along with the return of running backs Anthony Dixon and Christian Ducr6. The offensive line lost some starters from last year but replenished. with a lot of depth this season. ON DEFENSE: The Bulldogs will have plenty of experience on' defense this season, returning eight starters. They did, however, lose defensive ends Titus Brown and Avery Hannibal. Mississippi State also lost its defensive coordinator after Ellis Johnson left, but the position stayed in house as secondary coach -Charlie Harbison was promoted. The Bulldogs will have some ability to gamble, however, with All-Southeastern Conference free safety Derek Pegues patrolling the field. Pegues has nine interceptions over the last two seasons. ROCK: Mississippi State will rock because Carroll has a year under his belt and should have more experienced playmakers around him. The Bulldogs get Auburn at home in week three with a ESPN2 national television audience watching, and they could have a chance to surprise some people. ROLL: Mississippi State will get rolled because it will not be able to sneak up on teams quite like it did last season, when the Bulldogs finished 8-5 with upsets over Auburn and Alabama. The pass rush will suffer from the loss of both defensive ends. The offense must have more production through the skies from Carroll or else defenses will line up eight men in the box to stop the running attack. PH State Builldogs IMPACT PLAYER: OB Wesley Carroll Carroll knows if MississippiState is to repeat its success from last season, he will have to step up as a more polished passer. V He came in last season after starters Michael Henig and Josh Riddell went down to injuries. The sophomore completed 134 of 255 passes for 1,392 yards and threw nine touchdowns against seven interceptions. "I feel [coach Sylvester Croom] put a lot more into my hands .to Carroll make more reads at the line of scrimmage," Carroll said. "We did that in the spring and utilized a lot more of our speed at receiver." The sophomore isn't fazed after facing criticism over his arm strength. "It really doesn't bother me. If anything, it may be a little motivation," Carroll said. "I'm not worried about people saying my body's the right size .because in the westcoast offense you don't have to have that gunslinger arm, you just have to have an accurate, effective arm. More than anything it's mental as a quarterback playing in this system." All of this from a Fort Lauderdale native who now calls Starkville, Miss., home. "It means a lot for a guy from South Florida to go to the middle of Mississippi," Carroll said. "It's a big culture change. My instinct told me to come to Mississippi State and can't complain."

Sports WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 27,2008 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Persistent Williams returns to Gators By MIKE DIFERDINANDO Alligator Staff Writer mdiferdinando@alligator.org Mon Williams is a forgotten man. Buried almost as deep on the depth chart as he is in the minds of fans, Williams is left to wonder what might have been. A year ago, he was on the brink of stardom. After rushing for 95 yards during UF's 62-0 rout of Western Carolina as a freshman in 2006, Williams looked as if he was the answer to the Gators' running back woes. "After that, I really felt like I was going to get that starting spot," he said with a smile as big as the Dallas skyline tattooed on his right arm. But that was then. Williams tore his ACL during the first week of spring practice while participating in a noncontact drill. "I was like, 'Damn, my whole career is over.' I felt like I didn't have nothing left." Mon Williams UF sophomore running back on his ACL tear Even before the team doctor had a chance to examine him, he knew his.season was over. "As soon as it happened, I knew something wasn't right," he said. All he could do was watch as his dreams faded away as quickly as they came. Humbled and heartbroken, Williams learned how thin the line between sideline and stardom really is. ,"I was like, 'Damn, my whole career is over,"' Williams said. "I felt like I didn't have nothing left." Williams spent the better part of the next year hobbling from his dorm room in the Springs Complex to the UF weight room for long and painful rehabilitation sessions.

Marsh's move to nose guard paying off I THE SOPHOMORE HAS finished the year with just five EARNED A STARTING JOB. By KARL HYPPOLITE Alligator Staff Writer khyppolite@asigator.org There's a certain point when a talented prospect becomes a great player. It's the point where athletic ability meets experience. If you listen to the Gators coaching staff, defensive tackle Lawrence Marsh has reached that point. The sophomore had a minimal impact in 2007, as he tackles and 0.5 sacks. With UF struggling to get a push up the middle last season, Marsh was moved from defensive end to defensive tackle in an attempt to boost production on the inside. Defensive coordinator Charlie Strong has said the defensive line needed "someone who could move a body," and Marsh has found a way to fill that role. And apparently it came easy. "It wasn't that big a difference because once I came here I started getting bigger and stronger," Marsh said. "Last year I moved to defensive tackle and this year at nose guard, so as to make a serious run at a Southeastern Conference title, the defense needs to show vast improvement. "Last year it wasn't like long as I keep we didn't want the push," he working at it said. "We were just lacking in I think I can some areas. This year we've get better at just worked real hard at it, it." and we've believed in one anM a r s h other, and we're going to get understands that push. We're going to get last season's it done. defense often let down what was one of the country's most prolific offenses. If the Gators are going "This year we're putting it on ourselves. We feel like if we SEE MARSH, PAGE 23 Injuries keep on coming By BRIAN STEELE Alligator Staff Writer bsteele@alligator.org Urban Meyer must be getting awfully tired of answering questions about injuries. The preseason pains continued to pile up for the Gators on Tuesday whenMeyer announced sophomore offensive lineman Corey Hobbs is sidelined with a neck injury. Meyer did not know the severity of the injury, though he said Hobbs was in a neck brace. "We'll know more a bit later," Meyer said. Quarterback John Football Brantley, who had impressed Meyer with his recent progression, has a staph infection. Meyer said he does expect Brantley to practice today and be better for Saturday's game against Hawaii. Brantley is currently competing with Cameron Newton for the backup spot behind Tim Tebow. "He looks like death warmed over," Meyer said of Brantley. "Painful? I don't know if it's painful. It doesn't affect his chances of playing [Saturday]." Stars Brandon Spikes and Percy Harvin, however, are another story. Their status is very much up in the air. Spikes has a lingering foot injury, and Harvin is still recovering from off-season heel surgery. If Spikes cannot play Saturday against Hawaii, redshirtjuniorRyan Stamper will start in his place. Harvin practiced with the team during seven-on-seven drills Tuesday, but Spikes was unable to practice. Meyer admitted he thought Harvin would have returned by now. "They shaved off some of his heel when [the doctors] found out he had abnormal growth on the bone that was causing his issues with tendonitis in his knees," Meyer SEE NOTES, PAGE 23 0Baseball Marlins vs. Braves FSN, 7 p.m. EBaseball: Red Sox vs. Yankees EVPN, 7 p.m. &Southeastern Conference coaches Today's question: Other than Lawrence Marsh, who will selected the UF volleyball team to win start at defensive tackle?
