Former



SG pres.



arrested

Former UF Student Body President
Ryan Moseley was arrested early Sunday
on charges of an open container violation
and resisting arrest non-violently.
Moseley, who left office in May, de-
clined to comment on the arrest under the
advice of his lawyer.
According to
Lt. Sherry Scott,
Gainesville Police
reports state that
Moseley, 23, was spot-
ted with a "cup of
amber liquid" in his
hand on Northwest'
SFirst Avenue at about
Moseley 1:30 a.m.
When Officer Summer Hallett called
to him from her nearby post, Moseley
poured the contents of the cup onto the
ground and continued walking, Scott
said.
After being called a second time,
Moseley walked to Hallett, who put him
in handcuffs.
When Hallett asked Moseley's com-
panion, Ashley Hablitzel, to bring her the
cup; Moseley encouraged her to leave it
on the ground, Scott said.
Hallett reported that she could smell
alcohol on Moseley and that the cup was
found to have contained alcohol.

Campus group protests regulation


By EMILY BLAKE
Alligator Contributing Writer

Holding a sign that read
"HHS Is Sexist," Nihusa
Oviedo stood silently on the
corner of West University
Avenue and Southwest 13th
Street in hopes of snagging
the attention of passing driv-
ers.
Oviedo, a UF women's
studies junior and member
of Campus NOW, stood with
about 15 fellow members
Friday in protest of a pro-
posed regulation that she said
would threaten the livelihood
of all women.
The regulation, proposed
by the U.S. Department of
Health and Human Services
on Aug. 21, reinforces the
rights of health care providers
to deny anyone access to birth
control if they feel it is against
their religious beliefs or moral
convictions.
The regulation, also known
as the "conscience clause," is'
meant to prevent discrimina-
tion against potential employ-
ees who oppose birth control.
It would require the more
than 584,000 health care pro-
-viders receiving government
funding to verify they are
complying with the statutes,
according to the regulation.
If they fail to do so, the
health care providers could
lose funding.


narrson ulamona / Aligator siarr
UF graduate Katie Walters, co president of Campus NOW, holds a protest sign on the corner
of Southwest 13th Street and West University Avenue Friday afternoon.


But local women's rights
groups such as Campus NOW
believe the morals of doctors
and pharmacists should not
determine a woman's choice.
"It's not for them to
decide," Oviedo said.
"Everybody's entitled to their
own choice, whatever that
may be."
The regulation is meant to


reinforce three past statutes
meant to protect these con-
science rights of any health
care provider.
According to an HHS news
release, many health care pro-
viders are unaware of these
,rights or deem them unpro-
fessional.
Mike Leavitt, HHS. sec-
retary, would not comment


because the regulation is only
in draft form.
It will be considered for
final regulation after a 30-day
public comment period.
"It's important to raise
consciousness now so it
doesn't go through and take
effect," said Claire Beach,
co-president of the organiza-
tion.


Black Alumni Weekend honors 50 years of integration


* BRUNCH FOCUSED ON
FIRST BLACK STUDENTS.

By BRETT DALY
Alligator Writer

Before Michelle Davis
watched the football team's rout
of Hawaii, the UF alumna sat in
the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom


and listened to the stories of
black men and women who
struggled for equal rights at UF
50 years ago.
Davis and more than 150
others attended a champagne
brunch Saturday as part of this
year's Black Alumni Weekend.
The weekend celebrated the
50th anniversary of integration
at UF, when George Starke Jr.


became the first black student in
September 1958 after enrolling in
the UF Levin College of Law.
Davis, who graduated from
UF in 1988, shared
On the experience with
Campus her 11-year-old
daughter, Jasmine.
"It's important to
see the strides African-Americans
had made here and around the


-country," she said. "I wanted
her to see the school is more than
football."
Some of the speakers attended
UF during the 1960s and '70s,
a time when the first black stu-
dents struggled with being the
minority on a campus shaped
by the legacies of white students


and administrators.
Linda Y. Jackson, president
of the UF Association of Black
Alumni, which sponsored the
event, said the purpose of the
brunch was to highlight what
student life was like for those UF
students.

UF professor, students weigh in on McCain's VP pick


* PROFESSOR SAYS THE MOVE
INCREASES MCCAIN'S CHANCES.

By RACHEL ARROYO
Alligator Writer

All eyes were on Sen. Barack Obama
as he took the stage of the Democratic
National Convention and accepted the
party's nomination for president Thursday
night.
However, the cameras turned swiftly to
Sen. John McCain for another historic an-
nouncement Friday morning.
In a strategic move by the Republican
Party, McCain named Alaska Gov. Sarah
Palin his vice-presidential nominee Friday.
Beating out Florida Gov. Charlie Crist
- who was rumored to be a possible
contender Palin shares McCain's stance
on oil drilling and has spent much of her
term fighting government corruption in her
home state.
Palin, 44, is also a mother of five.
While Palin shares most of McCain's
political views, Republicans are banking
on the fact that she will draw votes from
supporters of Hillary Clinton, said Michael
Heaney, a UF political science professor.
Women ranging in age from 50 to 80
will determine the outcome of this election,
Heaney said, making them the swing vote.
"By picking Sarah Palin as his vice-
presidential nominee, John McCain makes
himself a much more desirable candidate
to moderate-to-conservative women,"
Heaney said.
"They have seen in Hillary Clinton a
representation of their lifelong struggle."
But because Clinton has been eliminated
from this race, the swing vote has been di-
vided in two, greatly increasing McCain's
chance at winning the.presidency, he said.
What Heaney believed would have been.
Obama's election has become a level play-
ing field due to McCain's pick of a female
vice-presidential nominee.
"Now, I would say it's a coin flip," he
said.
Republicans have "stopped the bleed-
ing" by choosing Palin, he said. They've
kept women, who may have consid-
ered backing Obama, from leaving the
Republican Party.
Having said that an Obama-Clinton
ticket would've made for a dream team,
Heaney believes that: the McCain-Palin
ticket was the best move the Republican


Party could have made in this election.
"It's a brilliant move that will greatly
increase (McCain's) chances of winning the
general election," Heaney said.
Had he been asked to offer advice to
the presidential nominees, Heaney said,
he would have told both to pick women as
their running mates.
Like it or not, Heaney said this election
is about race and gender. What remains to
be seen is if Americans care more about
having a woman or a black man in office.
Kathleen Shea, founder and president of
Gators for Hillary, said she could not have
been more insulted by McCain's pick for
vice president.
Her initial reaction to McCain's nomi-


nation was that he picked Palin purely
because she is a woman.
She said it was ironic that McCain
picked someone relatively inexperienced
after he spent much of
Elections his campaign harping on
2008 Obama's lack of foreign
policy and national secu-
rity experience.
Shea supported Clinton based on her
experience in the Senate, her health plan
and her intelligence. The fact that Clinton is
a woman was a bonus.
Shea said many of her friends were
also insulted by the McCain campaign's
strategy;
"That basically says the only reason

day, in O'Fallon, Mo.


people, supported Hillary Clinton is be-
cause she is a woman," Shea said.
As for the idea that Clinton would
pick up the Democratic vice-presidential
nomination, Shea said she never thought it
would happen.
"She's such a polarizing figure, and
there's a lot of animosity between the two
camps," she said.
Shea said she thought Clinton's charac-
ter would prevent her from accepting a No.
2 position had she been asked."
One thing Shea will not be second-
guessing based on McCain's decision is her
vote for Obama.
While Shea and Bryan Griffin, UF
College Republicans chairman, will not be
voting for the same candidate, they both
have common ground.
The two believe this presidential race
shouldn't be determined based on race or
gender.
Griffin is pleased with McCain's choice
for vice president based on Palin's plat-
form.
"First of all, I think that Palin is a\very
honest person, and leadership requires in-
tegrity," Griffin said.
He cited her fight against wasteful
spending in Alaska and said Obama's votes
in the Senate don't compare to Palin's role
as governor, which has more scope.
"Palin runs a state," Griffin said. "She
has experience running an entity."
Griffin said he knows that Palin's gen-
der has its advantages, but he rejects the
notion that it is the only reason she was
nominated.
Mark McShera, UF College Democrats
chairman, said gender will not significantly
affect voters because Palin represents
"more of the same,"-to borrow a line from
Joe Biden, Obama's running mate.
Her anti-abortion stance and her com-
mitment to' opening the Arctic National
Wildlife Refuge for oil drilling only fuel the
fire of the Republican Party's commitment
to exploit natural resources, McShera said.
He also said Palin lacks substantial ex-
perience compared to Obama.
"Barack Obama has been in the Senate
two times as long as she has been a gover-
nor," McShera said.
His biggest qualm with Palin is her
platform.
"We think that Sarah Palin brings the
same out-of-touch conservative values to
the table as George W. Bush," McShera
said.

Letters to the Eti;i:r'
McCain won't save UF's budget crisis
UF President Bernie Machen declared in
his State of the University address Thursday
that UF lacks the resources it needs because of
a "gloomy economy." Perhaps he should have
taken this into consideration before endorsing
Sen. John McCain in January
McCain doesn't just offer more of the same
disastrous economic policies of the Bush ad-
ministration; he plans to take them even fur-
ther. Tax breaks for the ultra wealthy form the
backbone of McCain's economic plan. With no
coherent plan to pay for these cuts, McCain
promises to plunge the federal government
even deeper into debt.
These irresponsible tax breaks will also
widen the divide between the well-off and the


middle class. Unregulated and deceitful spec-
ulation is the name of the game in McCain's
America.
Florida's economy is suffering enough
from Bush's failed policies. The state's eco-
nomic struggles directly threaten UF's status
as a top public institution. If Machen is seri-
ous about getting UF the resources it needs to
become a top 10 public university, he should
immediately rescind his endorsement of John
McCain.

Alligator should support green efforts
The Alligator rendered an opinion that I
feel most forward-thinking persons would
find shortsighted and disagreeable.
The column "darted" the University of
Miami for their new policy banning fresh-
men who live on campus from having cars.
The Alligator evoked the imagined danger
of these carless students being run down by
Miami's motorists as the basis for "hurling an
enormous...DART" at UM.
Not only that, but the Alligator erred in
implying that the policy applied to the entire
freshman class. Had the Alligator been more
circumspect, I think readers would have en-
countered a passage that read more like this:
We at the Alligator bestow a green, green


LAUREL on the University of Miami for their
progressive policy that prohibits freshmen
who live on campus from having cars. Such
action reduces fossil fuel consumption, pol-
lution and traffic congestion, while saving
students money, promoting physical fitness
and potentially allowing for the conversion of
parking lots into needed university facilities.
At the height of a global energy crisis and a do-
mestic economic downturn, these are timely
benefits indeed! The University of Florida, al-
ready a leader in campus sustainability would
be wise to consider a similar policy.

Guest : tu ),

Students should take advantage of chances to study abroad


you're here. You've made
it back to Gainesville, and
some of you are here for the
first time. That's great. Now get
the hell out of here.
No, really. Get out of
Gainesville, get out of Florida, get
out of the U.S. Go study abroad.
What are you waiting for?
I'm a fifth-year senior who
decided to take on extra debt and
delay graduation for the opportu-
nity to study in Berlin, Germany,
last spring. It was the best decision
I ever made.
I got to immerse myself in a
completely different culture and
work on my foreign language
skills.
I dealt with everything from
grocery shopping in a different


language to walking to school in
the snow during a transportation
strike.
I watched "The Simpsons" in
three languages.
I traveled to five different
countries and drank beers from
all of them.
I swam in the Baltic Sea na-
ked on a day when the water
was a chilly 46 degrees.
I made friends who live all
over this country, and now I've
got a couch to sleep on in at least
10 states.
And I still managed to get good
grades.
Study abroad experience looks
great to graduate schools and
employers, especially in today's
global markets. It matures you. as


Jessica a student and
Holland as a person.
Speaking Out It's a way
to see the
world. I've
got friends who have done all
different programs: some who
have spent six weeks in London
and China, and some who went
to Chile, Paris and Australia for a
semester. One of my friends even
spent anr entire year in Namibia.
There is a program for you out
there.
So what are you waiting for?
And don't try your lame excuses.
I've heard them all. As someone
who has studied abroad twice and
is considering a third stint, I'm
here to rid you of all your reasons
for not leaving the country to ex-


perience what's out there.
You may whine about how ex-
pensive it is to study abroad. Well,
almost everyone at UF receives or
qualifies for some sort of financial
aid. In the 2006-2007 school year,
nearly 95 percent of in-state un-
dergraduates received a Florida
Bright Futures Scholarship. If
you study abroad during the aca-
demic year, you'll still get Bright
Futures.
You can apply other financial
aid to the cost of your program,
too, and there are numerous schol-
arships you can apply for, whether
through UF or other sources.
You might think you can't do it
because you don't speak any other
languages, but there are programs
without a language requirement.


It's also a great way to take care
of the language courses you need
to graduate. There's no better way
to learn a language than to be sur-
rounded by it.
"I don't have the time!" you
say, exasperated. That's funny.
Neither did I. I'd signed a form
for my double major that said I'd
be done in May 2008, but here I
am, finishing up my last semester.
And I'm not going to lie part of
my reasoning was to be here for
another football season.
In the end, I'm sure you don't
need convincing. I promise you
will never regret a decision to go
abroad, but you might regret it
forever if you don't.
SJessica Holland is a senior major-
ing in German and Economics.

Newberry celebrates Labor Day


* LOCALS GATHER FOR WEEKEND OF
FIREWORKS, BARBECUE.

By CHANTELLE MARCELLE
Alligator Contributing Writer

The smell of grilled hamburgers and hot dogs wafted
through the air on a strong breeze. Barefoot children
played football while a live band entertained an audience
sprawled on lawn chairs and beach towels.
Locals relaxed over the school year's first long week-
end at Newberry's Fireworks and Baseball Labor Day
Classic Saturday and Sunday afternoon.
Rocky Voglio, owner of Newberry's Backyard Bar-B-
Q, said he first organized the event 10 years ago.
It has since grown to indude a fireworks show, a base-
ball tournament and more sponsors, including the City of
Newberry. It also offered horse-drawn buggy rides.
Diana Rivera, 42, pushed a red and black stroller
around the Newberry Sports Complex, on Northwest
16th Avenue, with her husband, Mario. It was the fami-
ly's first time at the event.
Rocco, Roxy and T.J. their Yorkshire terriers -
poked their heads out of the stroller. They wore matching
outfits with red ties in their hair.
A group of children ran up to the stroller, eyes fixed on
the trio who eagerly leaned toward their new audience.
"They're always a crowd pleaser," Rivera said.
--Suwannee River Early Ford Club members Don Fales,
71, and Frank Wheelus, 80, brought their antique cars.
Fales had a navy blue 1940 Ford Coupe that he's
owned for six years. He went to California to purchase
the award-winning car, paying more than $12,000.
Wheelus, who carries a picture of his car in his wallet,
said he looked for eight years before he bought his pol-
ished black 1941 Lincoln Continental Coupe.


His wife likes the car but doesn't ride in it, he said.
"She says, 'That's your toy,'" Wheelus said. "After
looking at it, she said, 'If you don't buy this, you're going
to have to quit looking!'"
On another part of the field, a band played atop a plat-
form. A small boy dressed in green was the lone figure
dancing unabashedly in front of them.
"You ready to rock and roll?" the lead vocalist shouted
down at him.
Bryan Smith, Jeff Dove, Frank Zyskowski and Alan
Gray, who make up the band Crown Vix, played for most
of the night. All of the members except Dove work for the
Gainesville Police Department.
"They're always a crowd pleaser."
Diana Rivera
event attendee

During each show, Smith said he makes sure to
mention the band's former rhythm guitarist, Lt. Corey
Dahlem, who was killed last year by a drunken driver on
University Avenue following the basketball champion-
ship game in 2007.
As the fireworks started, Lloyd Estes, a former SFC
student, watched from the bed of a pick-up truck with his
little sister and several of her friends.
Estes, who is in the Air Force, drove up from Tampa to
be with his family before he is sent to Iraq. Even the no-
ticeably higher gas prices didn't stop him from visiting.
Estes, 25, said the last time he came to the event was
five years ago, and it has grown since then.
"There's definitely a lot more people here this year,"
he said.
Cars packed the parking lot and lined the road outside
of the complex for the fireworks. Although the display is
expensive to put on, Voglio said it's worth it.
"This," he said, "is a show."


Arredondo room


to get makeover

By GUYANA HAND
Alligator Contributing Writer

The Arredondo Room, a slow-paced dining room on the
fourth floor of the Reitz Union, is dosed for renovations this
fall.
Construction will begin in mid-October and will last until
January or February, said Mike Mironack, director of opera-
tions for the Reitz Union.
Local Mironack said the Arredondo Room is usu-
News ally dosed during the summer, but it wasn't
opened for the fall because start-up costs
would outweigh the benefit of opening before construction
begins. He said people would also get confused if it was only
open for a week.
The biggest changes to the Arredondo Room would be
merging it with the Micanopy Room and front lobby, he said.
Other renovations include bringing the room up to building
code standards.
Mironack said he could not give an estimate of what the
renovations would cost because the building plan hasn't been
finalized.
Pierre Jean-Louis, a UF history and religion senior, said
he is looking forward to going back to the Arredondo Room
after it is has been renovated.
"Pretty much everything UF renovates, it turns out better
than it was," Jean-Louis said.

Gator Dining to host Ramadan buffet on campus


Islam on Campus also hosting fast-a-thon this month


By JACQUELYN WEINER
Alligator Writer

Broward Dining is expanding its
global food choices.
Gator Dining Services will host
a special meal in observance of
Ramadan on Sept. 10 at Broward
Dining.
The purpose of the event is to
raise student awareness of Islamic
culture and Ramadan, said Jonathan
Bull, vice president of external rela-
tions for Islam on Campus.


During Ramadan, the ninth and
most holy month in the Islamic cal-
endar, Muslims fast from just before
dawn until dusk every day, he said.
This year, the month of Ramadan
will correspond to September.
Ramadan marks the revealing of
the Quran to Muhammad, he said.
Amina Naseer, a former student
senator, said she began discussing
the special Ramadan meal with
members of Student Government
and Gator Dining in the spring.
The planning will come to frui-


tion in the form of a Mediterranean
and Indian all-you-can-eat buffet at
7:45 p.m. on Sept. 10.
Students can enjoy the Ramadan
meal for $8.28, the same price as
regular dining hall entry, according
to Jill Rodriguez, Gator Dining's
marketing program manager.
The tentative menu includes
braised chicken in peanut sauce,
vegetable samosas, bulgur and
green lentil pilaf, couscous with
dates, and baklava.
"They wanted to make some-


thing different than what they nor-
mally have at the dining hall, not
just burgers and hot dogs," Naseer
said.
Naseer said she has spoken with
Gator Dining officials about using
halal meat, although she isn't sure
what the final decision will be.
Halal is a dietary restriction prac-
ticed by Muslims, similar to kosher
dietary practices used in Judaism.
The major supplier for halal
meat in Central Florida is located in
Orlando, she said.


Another on-campus event in cel-
ebration of Ramadan will be Islam
on Campus's Ramadan Fast-a-thon
on Sept. 18 at the O'Connell Center.
Participants in the fast-a-thon
agree to fast for the day, which is
what Muslims will do each day this
month, Naseer said.
Like Gator Dining's Ramadan
meal, the fast-a-thon is an outreach
effort that aims to educate non-
Muslims about Ramadan, Naseer
said.
"Ramadan is all about separating
yourself for a month and putting
yourself in someone else's shoes,"
she said.


STUDENT LIFE

Local bookstores offer incentives beyond low prices


By KASEY ROBERTS
Alligator Contributing Writer .

Students are receiving more than text-
books for their money this semester when
shopping at Gainesville bookstores.
In the competitive textbook-selling
business, many local bookstore owners are
trying to give their stores an edge by offer-
ing incentives to students.
Kenneth Roberts, owner of Orange and
Blue Textbooks, said because many of the
books his store sells come from the same


publishing company that competing stores
use, the bookstore must find a way to at-


"One way is to sell used books,
b t thi d n't resonate as much


tract customers. UUL LI 1 U I J1 I i i I l.4 I IIl l I
"One way is to sell used books, but this to students as giving them some-
doesn't resonate as much to students as thing for free that they actually
giving them something for free that they would want.
actually would want," Roberts said. would want
Roberts said many of the bookstores Kenneth Roberts
that were previously owned by individu- owner of Orange and Blue Textbooks
als are now owned by large conglomer-
ates, so incentives are used to provide a certificate for a deal at Happy Go Lucky
competitive advantage. Boutique when purchasing two or more
OBT is offering promotions such as a textbooks. It is also offering a Gator


Cinemas movie pass when purchasing
three or more textbooks, according to its
Web site.
Nandy Ferguson, general manager of
the Florida Book Store, said incentives*
give a reason beyond low prices for stu-
dents to shop at a specific bookstore.
The Florida Book Store's incentives
this semester include coupons for a free
Chipotle burrito and a giveaway of tick-
ets to The Real Big Deal music, camping
and arts festival at the Alachua County
Fairgrounds, according to its Web site.

a better record of history," Jackson said.
"These stories need to be told."
And that's exactly what happened.
Delphine Jackson, who graduated from
UF in 1971 with a degree in education, told
the. crowd about her part in the 1971 Black
Student Union sit-in.
She said in April of that year, the student
union held a sit-in at then-UF President
Stephen C. O'Connell's office and demand-
ed he admit more black students and faculty.
Only 343 black students were enrolled in fall
1970, according to UF's Web site.
Sixty-six students were arrested, and
O'Connell refused amnesty to the protest-
ers, a decision that led to the departure of
one-third of the black student population
and several black faculty members from UF,
according to the site.
Jackson wasn't arrested, but it remains a
day she will never forget.
She was five months pregnant at the time
and said her decision to protest made it pos-
sible for her son to attend UF years later.
Other speakers included Don Gaffney,
UF's first black quarterback, as well as
Warren Jones and Ron Coleman, who were
involved in the 1971 protest.
SThis fall, approximately 4,100 black stu-
dents were enrolled in UF's undergraduate,
graduate and professional programs, ac-
cording to Steve Orlando, UF spokesman.


This year's enrollment of black students
represents a drop of about 70 students from
fall 2007. Orlando said one reason for the
decline could be attributed to the heavy re-
cruitment being performed by other Florida
universities.
Other events from the weekend included
a dance, a post-game social and a farewell
brunch on Sunday.
"I have goose bumps being here
and understanding what these
people went through."
Florida Bridgewater-Alford
-UF community relations director

Florida Bridgewater-Alford, director of
UF community relations, said more events
will be celebrated this year in honor of the
50th anniversary of integration, including a
gala in February.
"I have goose bumps being here and
understanding what these people went
through," Bridgewater-Alford said. "There
was so much accomplished then, but there is
still so much we have to do."
For Marietta LeBlanc, who graduated
from UF in 1996, the brunch was an oppor-
tunity for her to understand how her parents
felt during their time at UF, since both at-
tended the university when black students
first started attending.
"I came to get a sense of history and a
sense of progress," LeBlanc said.

Despite rainy weather
and intense heat, more
than 90,000 spectators
gathered in Gainesville
on Saturday morning to
tailgate and party before
the 12:30 p.m. football
game between the Florida
Gators and the Hawaii
Warriors.
Fans danced in hula
skirts, drank outside of the
Gator Bus on University

up for the game, in which
the No. 5 Gators opened
the 2008 season with a 56-

Gators gain confidence for Miami game
By MIKE McCALL and
PHIL KEGLER ,.. ,
Alligator Staff Writers : 4 --


The idea that UF would put
up eight touchdowns against
Hawaii wasn't all that far-
fetched, but doing so while
quarterback Tim Tebow scored
just once didn't seem quite
right.
The Heisman Trophy win-
ner didn't have to exert much
energy in the No. 5 Gators'
(1-0) 56-10 win Saturday,
mostly thanks to contributions
from seven other players that
seemed to come straight out of
a highlight video.
- Electrifying runs, solid spe-
cial teams play and ball-hawk-
ing defense kept the crowd of
90,575 in The Swamp on its
feet and made a lackluster first
quarter nothing but an after-
thought. Tebow barely broke
a sweat.
"I didn't take too much of
a pounding," Tebow said. "I
don't think I'm sore, so I can go
condition now. I didn't take too
manyits."
Now a fresh Tebow and
the rest of the Gators turn
their attention to Miami (1-0),
who comes to Gainesville on

Saturday. And they'll probably
be able to do so with a healthy
Brandon Spikes and Percy
Harvin. Coach Urban Meyer
said Sunday both are "prob-
able" to play.
Offensive lineman Jim Tartt,
who has a nagging shoulder


injury, is also expected to play
but Meyer called his, status
"questionable."
The fire for Miami was al-
ready evident in Tebow's eyes
right after the Hawaii (0-1)
game. The junior signal-caller
was 9-of-14 passing for 137


'yards and a touchdown a
48-yarder to Murphy and
carried nine times for 37 yards.
The game snapped his NCAA-
record 14-game streak with
at least one rushing and one

James has breakout performance in win


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

It looked like a punt that wouldn't be
returned, bouncing twice on the grass.
Then again, Brandon James is used to
doing things that aren't supposed to be
done.
The 5-foot-7, 186-pound junior picked
up the ball on the run, eluded Hawaii
defenders and then saw nothing but grass
between him and the end zone.
The 74-yard punt return put the Gators
up 21-0 with 5:35 left in the second quar-
ter.
"Once you turn the corer and you see
a little bit of open field, you're thinking in
your mind that you want to go ahead and


"He's never prepared like he's
prepared (now). He's in the
best shape of his career, best
strength of his career."
Urban Meyer
UF football coach on Brandon James

put it in (the end zone)," James said.
UF coach Urban Meyer, known for his
obsession over special teams, called James
the player of the game.Saturday.
He led the Gators with 121 all-purpose
yards and two touchdowns.
"That was a great return," Meyer said.
"He's never prepared like he's prepared
(now). He's in the best shape of his career,


best strength of his career."
Another speedster, freshman Jeff
Demps; was out on the field blocking for
James and called the return "incredible."
"He made like five guys miss," Demps
said.
"I tried to get out and throw a block in,
but obviously he didn't even need it."
The run was James' third career punt re-
turn for a touchdown, leaving him one shy
of the school record, held by former wide
receiver Jacquez Green (1995-97).
It also gave him a chance to show off his
blockers.
"You have a lot of guys that (special
teams means) the world (to)," James said.
"They prepare for it so hard they put a lot

Realseason

starts vs. UM

Don't be fooled by the fact
that Hawaii is listed before
Miami on UF's schedule.
The matchup with the Hurricanes
on Saturday is the real- season
opener.
That 56-10 blowout against the
Warriors was nothing more than a fi-
nal preseason tuneup, and it's hard to
draw any con-
clusions about
f"" ,the Gators
from the per-
formance.
:, ,-. The sec-
ondary was
Mike McCall suffocating,
McCall-in' It the pass rush
Like I See It was tenacious
mmccall@alligator.org and the run-
ning backs
were electrify-
ing, but there's no way to tell if any of
that was real or an illusion.
Quarterback Tim Tebow wasn't
asked to do much, and with re-
ceiver Percy Harvin, tight end Aaron
Hemandez and linebacker Brandon
Spikes on the sideline, the No. 5 UF
squad we saw isn't the one well
watch throughout the Southeastern
Conference slate.
The game basically amounted to
Urban Meyer digging through his
toy chest to see what he had.
Chris Rainey and Jeff Demps
ripped off some big runs, Brandon
James carved up Hawaii's special
teams and safeties Major Wright and
Ahmad Black looked like Warriors
receivers with the ease of their inter-
ceptions.
But it won't be .that way on
Saturday.
Meyer called the 'Canes the most
talented team in college football
based on speed, size and individual
talent, and there will be plenty of
emotion on the field as players
square off against childhood friends
and high school teammates.
This is the game the Gators have
been waiting for, with the Hawaii
contest nothing but a detour en route
to the collision with UM.
A month ago, The Miami Herald
snapped a photo of a bulletin board
in UF's new weight room.

Sprinters Demps, Rainey run Warriors out of Swamp


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@aligator.org

Urban Meyer wasn't. kidding when he
said opponents can't afford to make a mistake
against his running backs.
Chris Rainey and Jeff Demps made their
coach look awfully good Saturday for all the
preseason hype he gave them. The two speed-
sters combined for 154 total yards and two
touchdowns in a 56-10 street-football like rout
against Hawaii.
"It felt.just like high school, back in the
v, day," said Rainey, a sophomore, who barely
got on the field last season as he dealt with a


left shoulder injury.
Rainey scored on a 33-yard scramble and
Demps, a freshman, made the entire Warriors
defense look silly as he scored almost un-
touched on a 62-yard sprint his second play
as a Gator.
The running backs and Meyer have said
their goal this year is to gain 1,000 yards on the
ground collectively. With Saturday's 187-yard
performance, they're well on their way.
Demps, who almost made the U.S.
Olympic team as a sprinter, and Rainey had
-a race behind their Springs dormitory earlier
this summer to determine who's faster. While
their sprints ended in a draw, it's certain the
duo is faster than anybody on Hawaii's sec-


ondary. And that's all that mattered Saturday.
"We kind of like fast people around here,
and Demps is fast," Meyer
: said.
a' If there are any ques-
S tions about UF's speed, just
9 ..ask Hawaii. Receiver Greg
SSalas put it bluntly when he
S said, "They are fast."
Rainey and Demps,
however, did have some
Ralney help as the offensive line
created gaping holes for their small frames.
On Rainey's-touchdown run, receiver Riley
Cooper made the final keyblock before Rainey
stepped into the end zone.

"Riley Cooper, that was about a seven-sec-
ond block clinic he put on," Meyer said.
With runners like Rainey and Demps,
seven seconds is just about all they need to get
through a hole.
"I was running fasT, but I knew I could run
faster," Demps said of the 62-yard score.
That's not something the rest of the
Southeastern Conference wants to hear.
Even receiver Louis Murphy, who isone of
the fastest players on the team, was impressed
with Rainey and Demps' performances.
"I wouldn't imagine them doing that in
their first game," Murphy said. "It adds an-
other dimension to our offense. We have a lot
of depth."

"It's playing the 'U,'" he said. "We'll
probably have about 80 percent of the state
of Florida in Gainesville next week. It'll be
hyped, and no matter how good they played
teams last year or whoever they play the rest
of the year, they'll play their best game next
Saturday against us. Hopefully we'll do the
same because that's a rivalry."


Tebow even took a rare jab, playfully call- in the first quarter Saturday, although the the season and responded well Saturday as


ing out the Miami fans.
"I'm huge into the college environment
and the excitement of the fans and every-
thing," Tebow said
"After watching a game there . I
was looking around and there were like
30,000 empty seats. And then you come to
Florida and you see the environment (in
Gainesville). Wow, big difference."

"I read a lot saying we were a weak link,

"They can say what they want, but week

know we're a much better defense than we
were last year."

Critics have said he is too short, to

going to get it again with all the play-
makers we have," James said.


M IKE, from page 20


The board had a countdown to the Gators'
first game, with large, orange-and-green,
block-letter stickers proclaiming Miami as 30
days away.
Under that, Hawaii was written in smaller,
dry-erase marker.
Forget the politically correct statements
from the team and coaches, Saturday's game
was an afterthought during offseason work-
outs.
Their eyes were on the prize, and that was
Miami.
Saturday night finally gave them a chance
to talk about the 'Canes in the open, and the
Gators didn't disappoint.
Receiver Louis Murphy, who once hoped to


play his college ball in Coral Gables, let a little
venom fly at Miami's nickname "The U."
"I don't refer to them as 'The U,' because
'U' stands for university, and we're the real
university," Murphy said.
"They are Miami, and that's what I call
them."
No matter what you call either team, this
is where the rubber meets the road for UF's
hopes of a national or conference title.
The Gators can't have the slow start they
had last weekend if they want to end UM's
six-game win streak in the series and get their
first victory since 1985.
The 'Canes may not be as reputable as in
years past, but they're out for revenge.
UF has taken the state spotlight from them,
and they're looking to restore their name in a
big way.

Energized secondary


comes up big in rout


By MIKE McCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alligator.org

UF's secondary went into the sea-
son opened against Hawaii hoping to.
prove it was better than the unit that
finished No. 98 in the nation in pass
defense last year.
It's still too early to tell how good
the group is, but outscoring the
Warriors and quarterback Tim Tebow
isn't a bad start.
The Gators held Hawaii to just 71
passing yards through three quarters,
and safeties Major Wright and Ahmad
Black each returned interceptions for
touchdowns in the 56-10 rout, trump-
ing Tebow's lone touchdown and
Hawaii's total output.
UF coach Urban Meyer wasn't
ready to anoint the secondary as up
to par yet, but he admitted the perfor-
mance left him excited.
"I'm jacked," Meyer said. "I'll
go run in (the locker room) and hug
them all up right now, and then go
back to beating them to death on
Monday."
The Gators played nickel coverage
for most of the game, with Joe Haden,
Wondy Pierre-Louis and Janoris
Jenkins as the corerbacks in front of
Wright and Black.
Haden played the nickel posi-
tion, blitzing and roughing up the
Warriors' slot receivers, while the
safeties made plays behind him.
After a slow start, the Gators
scored their first touchdown with
11:39 left in the second quarter, and
Wright wasted little time in bringing
the crowd in The Swamp to its feet
again.


He jumped a pass from Hawaii
quarterback Greg Alexander and
sprinted 32 yards across open field
for what he said was his first-ever de-
fensive touchdown, even going back
to his time at St. Thomas Aquinas
High.
"My eyes got really big, probably
as big as a- clock," Wright said. "My
main focus was
to catch the ball
first and then run
with it."
Black followed
that up with an
80-yard intercep-
tion return late in
Haden the third quarter.
He also stopped Hawaii on its
second drive of the game with a
diving pick in the end zone, a solid
day for a player deemed one of the
Gators' biggest question marks after
expected starter Dorian Munroe was
lost for the season with a torn ACL in
his right knee.
But so far losing Munroe hasn't
been an issue.
"Basically, on our defense, every-
one has to trust each other," Wright
said. "And that's the kind of chemis-
try we have going on."
The defense also provided a
breath of fresh air for Tebow, as its
touchdowns left the offense on the
sidelines for long periods of time.
"It was a lot of rest time on the
bench that I'm not used to, but it's
great," Tebow said.
"They were beating us in points
for a while, and I don't know if we
ever caught up with them because of
all the special teams and defensive
touchdowns."


UF SOCCER

Gators find net early, often


By BOBBY CALLOVI
Alligator Writer
bcallovi@alligator.org

With the Gators traveling to No. 5 Florida
State next week, a young, struggling UF of-
fense was in dire need of some confidence.
After Friday's 1-0 loss to Central Florida,
No. 22 UF was running out of time to prove it
could have a breakout scoring game.
Then Nebraska came to James G. Pressley
Saturday afternoon. A 6-1 victory followed.
The Gators came out firing, yet had simi-
lar results as Friday by missing good scoring
chances, including an open shot from Angela
Napolitano that went high over the net.
But just moments later in the 17th minute,
Nicky Kit found Napolitano with a long
cross from the left side, and Napolitano
placed the ball just past Comhuskers goalie
Jessica Mills in the left corner.
"I knew we were creating good offensive
opportunities, so it was just a matter of stick-
ing one in," Napolitano said.
The early lead was quickly erased by
Nebraska freshman forward Molly Thomas
in the 24th minute.
But the Gators were even faster to respond
with a goal two minutes later by senior for-
ward Megan Kerns, who barely got a touch
on another Kit cross, but it was just enough
for it to squirt past Mills.
After that, UF began to pour it on, scor-
ing another goal in the first half and three
more in the second period for a total of six,
including another by Kerns and one more by
Napolitano.
Napolitano's second goal was deflected
by the keeper and rolled along the goal line
before Kerns slid in to put it to the back of
the net.
It appeared to be her third goal, but the
referee decided the ball had already crossed
the line before she got to it.
The team's ability to finish was a big
change from the match against UCF, in
which UF took 17 shots and couldn't score.
But the difference could have stemmed from
a talk the team had Saturday.
"We went into a room and set a bunch of
goals, and one of the main goals was not just
to shoot the ball but to finish it," Kerns said.
While the win gives the Gators (2-1-1)


momentum for next Sunday's match against
FSU, it was even more important, according
to UF coach Becky Burleigh, than mostbf the
players realized.
"We didn't talk about this with the team,
but I think it was a must-win game for us,"
Burleigh said. "We can't let anything bring us
down. If we wanted (to have) sulked about
Friday night and just lay down and feel sorry
for ourselves, that wouldn't have helped us
at all, so this was the perfect antidote.'

"We went irto a room and set a
bunch of goals, and one of the
main goals was not just to shoot
the ball but to finish it."
Megan Kerns
UF senior forward


The newfound confidence will be a huge
part in preparing the large group of fresh-
men for later on in the season.
Due to the large, lead late in the game,
Burleigh was able to give some of the
freshmen more playing time than in closer
games.
"It was really important (to get them in
the game) because it is a long season, and we
are going to need people to step up in critical
situations," Burleigh said.
Lindsay Thompson took advantage of
the extra action by scoring her first colle-
giate goal in the 80th minute. Tahnai Annis
got the first career start, becoming the third
freshman to start in a game this year, and
scored her second goal this season in the 54th
minute. Although the offensive output might
have been the confidence booster, the rebuilt
defense, with three new starters, had another
solid outing. The defense allowed only three
shots on goal and still has not allowed more
than one goal in a game this season-._'
The lack of,chances for opponents is mak-
ing Burleigh's decision between Meghan
Berlingo and Katie Fraine for the team's
permanent goalie even tougher, but she was
still impressed with Berlingo's performance
against Nebraska.
"It was one of those games we knew they
were going to serve a lot of long balls in, and
she dealt with that very well," Burleigh said.


Jaeckel takes MVP as No. 8 UF wins two in tournament


Injuries force Wise to change lineup


By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

Nothing says coming-out party
like a Most Valuable Player award.
After two inspired matches
over the weekend, redshirt fresh-
man Kristy Jaeckel took home the
Aquafina Invitational MVP award
as the Gators came away with two
victories.
"She may be the strongest fresh-
man in the entire country," coach
Mary Wise said of Jaeckel.
In Saturday's 3-0 (25-21, 27-
25, 25-18) victory against Pacific,
Jaeckel led No. 8 UF (2-0) with
a 12-kill performance where she
posted a .786 hitting percentage
- the best in UF history by a non-
middle blocker.
Making the feat even more im-


pressive was the fact that she was
playing out of position for much of
the match.
Senior middle blocker Kelsey
Bowers sat out due to a nagging
back injury, forcing Wise to shake
up the lineup.
Sophomore Lauren Bledsoe
moved from opposite hitter to the
middle of the court, and Jaeckel
adjusted to blasting high-arcing
sets from the right side instead of
Sthe left, where she logged 15 kills
the night before in a 3-1 (25-21, 26-
28, 25-16, 25-17) win over Alabama
Birmingham.
Bledsoe filled in for Bowers by
recording a team-high four blocks.
Along with Jaeckel, junior libero
Elyse Cusack and freshman setter
Kelly Murphy made appearances
on the All-Tournament team.


Cusack was all over the court
and collected 28 digs in two days
while keeping her young team-
mates focused.
"Elyse is both the offensive
and defensive
S line for us," Wise
said. "More than
just skill, Elyse
VOlleyball provides leader-
ship."
Murphy dished out the most
assists for the Gators this weekend
and was second only to Jaeckel in
kills in her first two games in the
Orange and Blue.
Her teammates and coach
raved about her versatility head-
ing into the season, and the No.
1 recruit in the nation has proven
them right.
Murphy's game from behind


the service line was the only thing
that seemed to be lacking.
Against the Tigers, she commit-
ted four service errors without a
single ace.
Wise attributed the serving
struggles to the extraordinarily
large load Murphy has taken on as
a freshman.
"Imagine if you asked your
quarterback to also be a linebacker
and play both offense and de-
fense," Wise said.
"Then they had to take care of
the extra-point kicks."
Wise is more than happy to take
a few missed extra points after big-
time scoring plays and exceptional
defending.
In addition to Jaeckel and
Murphy, freshman Colleen Ward
made her presence known in her
O'Connell Center debut.
Against Pacific, she put up a
complete line of seven kills, nine


digs, three blocks and three aces.
It was fitting that Ward ended
the final set of the weekend .by
holding serve for the last four
points of the 25-18 win.
"First, I just try to get a good
toss and then just hit it as hard as I
can over," she said of her big jump
serve.
With the easy win against
Pacific, Wise now has at least one
victory against every team that she
has faced in her career at UF the
Tigers had won the previous six
matches.
After the Gators coted
through a lightning-quick three-
set match, Wise issued a warning
to all the UF faithful.
"I hope our fans will under-
stand that a 3-1 win is a win," she
said.
"With the combination of our
youth and 25-point sets, 3-0's just
aren't going to happen." .

'Silly' penalties problematic for Gators in opener


I UF FINISHED THE GAME WITH 13
PENALTIES FOR 90 YARDS.
f
By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Staff Writer
edrexler@alligator.org

The Gators played a nearly flawless game
on Saturday, but if there was one flaw to be
found, it was in those tiny, yellow flags that
flew'g around the stadium.
UF ended the game against Hawaii with
a crazy 13 penalties for 90 yards, and eight of
those'came in the first half.
Hawaii only had seven penalties for 60
yards.
On the Warriors' first two possessions
alone, the Gators went offsides three times
and also had a false start on their own first
drive. The false start came on a 4th-and-1 situ-
ation where UF was planning on going for it.
Instead, the false start made it 4th and 6, so the
Gators elected to punt.
"The discipline of the D-line, you can't
have penalties," UF coach Urban Meyer
said. "You think it's going to be 2nd and 10,
but now it's 1st and 5. You get a nice play on
offense, and a guy moves, or a guy doesn't
line up correctly. ...We've got a long way to


go now."
The biggest penalty, however, came on a
Hawaii punt.
Sophomore running back Chris Rainey
and freshman running back Jeff Demps broke
around Hawaii's offensive line and attempted
to block the punt. Instead, the two ran into
Hawaii punter Tim Grasso, costing UF 15
yards and possession of the ball.
"That was a silly penalty," Meyer said.
"You have the two freshmen running on the
side ... trying to come off the edge, and sure
enough, they ran into the punter."
Demps seems less worried about the pos-
sibility of future penalties than Meyer.
"Mistakes are going to happen," Demps
said. "But as long as you're playing hard and
giving all you got, it doesn't really matter.
"It matters, but deep down it doesn't mat-
ter because you were giving it your all."
Meyer attributes the penalties to youth.
"Just silly, nonsense, freshman penalties,"
Meyer said. "You have guys running into the
kicker, guys jumping offsides, an offensive
tackle moving.
"Most of it was on young players. That's
the biggest thing we've got to correct."
On the very last play of the third quarter,
Hawaii's third-string quarterback, Inoke
Funaki, ran to the right sideline to go-out of


bounds.
Instead, he was met by two Gators who
shoved him off the field. UF was assessed a
15-yard personal foul penalty.
Meyer knows things
like that can't happen
against better teams and
realized how many times
the yellow flag flew.
"We probably set a re-
cord today," he said.
The Gators haven't had
that many penalties since
Hemandez beating Mississippi on Sept.
22, 2007, when they had 14 for 127 yards.

NEWTON GIVES TEBOW A BREAK: It appears
Tim Tebow is going to need fewer ice packs
this season.
UF blasted Hawaii on a largely unspec-
tacular day for the reigning Heisman Trophy
winner.
Tebow completed 9 of 14 passes for just
137 yards and didn't rush for a touchdown
for the first time since the 2006 SEC champi-
onship game.
Cameron Newton came in to replace
Tebow during a goal-line situation in the third
quarter, as part of an effort to keep Tebow as
fresh as possible.


"It's going
(Tebow) carry
of times per
want to keep
Tim and not


to be hard not to have
the ball a certain amount
game," Meyer said. "We
the wear and tear off of
lean on him too much."


UNEXPECTED SUCCESS: Punter Chas
Henry made one of the biggest plays of
the day when he ran for 17 yards to con-
vert a 4th and 15 in the second quarter.
It wasn't a designed fake punt, but a gutsy
decision on Henry's part.
"That was his last snap at the University
of Florida if he didn't get," Meyer joked.
"They were loading up the left side; and
I've. got to give Chas credit. That was
not called, he saw a gap and he took it."

ETC: Tight end Aaron Hemandez didn't play
Saturday, and Meyer was tight-lipped as to
why.
"If he's ready to play, he'll play next week.
He wasn't ready to play this week," Meyer
said.
Hemandez was the projected starter at
tight end.
-Running back Emmanuel Moody was lim-
ited by a sprained ankle and rushed for just
two yards on two carries.
