Two-month road project begins Monday


* PROJECT WILL SLOW

Driving down Archer or
Newberry roads will take about
15 to 20 minutes longer thanks


to construction beginning next
week, said Gina Busscher, Florida
Department of Transportation
spokeswoman.
A two-month resurfacing proj-
ect alternating between Archer
Road, east of 34th Street, and
Newberry Road, west of 43rd
Street, begins Monday, said Chip


Skinner, FDOT spokesman.
Busscher said the department
initiated the $600,000 project be-
cause depressions in
LOCal the roadways were
News unsafe for driv-,
ers and could have
opened up to form holes.
"It was such a dip that when


people drove over it at certain Homecoming celebration.


speeds they could possibly lose
control," she said. "It was quite a
jolt."
The roads will be under con-
struction Monday through Friday
from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
There will be a break in con-
struction on Oct. 24 for UF's


Access to certain businesses in
those areas could be affected, but
Busscher said it's even more im-

UF Dean of Students Gene Zdziarski reacts as staff present him a quilt during a farewell party in the Reitz

Gene Zdziarski shared some
laughs and tears with col-
leagues and students at his go-
ing-away party Wednesday.
Zdziarski, known to stu-
dents as "Dean Gene," will
leave his UF position as dean
of students for the vice presi-
dency of Roanoke College, a
private liberal arts college in
Salem, Va.
His last day at UF is Friday,
and he will begin his career at
Roanoke on Sept. 15.
UF plans to announce
Zdziarski's successor Friday,
said Steve Orlando, UF spokes-
man.
"This has probably been one
of the highlights of my profes-
sional career," Zdziarski said of


his seven years at UF.
He said his dean position is
one of the most coveted jobs in
higher education and deciding
to leave was difficult.
"This has probably been
one of the highlights of
my professional career."

UP ADMINISTRATION

Committee to vote on renewable energy fee proposal


By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Staff Writer
ksanders@alligator.org

A UF Board of Trustees com-
mittee will vote today on a new
fee that would generate money for
renewable energy sources on cam-
pus by charging students 50 cents
per credit hour.
The renewable energy fee is ex-
pected to generate about $645,000
in revenue each year to fund proj-
ects such as solar panels, waste-


to-energy programs and build-
ing upgrades at UF, said Kelly
Moosbrugger, a recent UF gradu-
ate and the student representative
from the UF Joint Sustainability
Committee.
Moosbrugger and Adrian
Erlenbach, Student Government
secretary of environmental affairs,
presented the case for the fee dur-
ing the June meeting of the board's
Educational Policy and Strategy
Committee.
Moosbrugger said she was


"I think the rest of them
were pretty impressed that
students were actually ask-
ing for this."

UF Joint Sustainability Committee
student representative,

encouraged by. the response she
received from some of the trustees
in June.


"I think the rest of them were
pretty impressed that students
were actually asking for this,"
Moosbrugger said.
The committee is scheduled to
vote on the item during its meeting
starting at 3:45 p.m.
Gators for a Sustainable
Campus launched a campaign
for the fee in fall 2006. About 78
percent of about 7,470 students
who voted in spring 2007 SG elec-
tions said they would support the
renewable energy fee in response


to a referendum question.
Last spring, about 82 percent of
800 UF students who completed
a survey about the fee said they
would be willing to pay the fee
even if it wasn't covered by their
Bright Futures scholarship, accord-
ing to the proposal.
Once put into place, Erlenbach
said, a committee comprised of
students, faculty and representa-
tives from facilities such as the

* PROFESSORS SAY AP TAKES
AWAY FROM COLLEGE EDUCATION.

By RACHEL ARROYO
Alligator Writer

While Advanced Placement credits may
save students money and time, professors
think they may be hurting their college
education.
In an editorial published Wednesday
in Education Week, Paul Von Blum, a pro-
fessor at the University of California, Los
Angeles, said AP credits have only served
to diminish the quality of a liberal arts
education for a number of reasons, one of
them being that students aren't retaining
the information.
In a telephone interview, Von Blum said
high school students are memorizing mate-
rial and learning it with the goal of passing
the AP exam and not for the purpose of
gaining knowledge.
Joe Spillane, chairman of UF's history
department, said he has seen the same pat-
terns in his department.
"It is certainly true at UF that we have
seen over the last 10 years really dramatic
changes with respect to the number of stu-
dents coming in with AP credits," Spillane
said.
The biggest problem the department
faces is having underclassmen flood upper-
level history courses without having taken
any 2000-level classes, lhe said.
The "U.S. history survey," which en-
compasses two classes designed to teach
the basics of American history, isn't attract-
ing nearly as many students as it used to,
Spillane said.
In both United States to 1877 and United
States Since 1877, the decline in enrollment
has been steady over the past five years,
he said. Spillane said the department is
reorganizing upper-level course offerings
because enrollment in the survey courses
has leveled-off.
While faculty members are tailoring'
courses to accommodate students with
AP credits, the consensus among Spillane
and his colleagues is that students in these
courses are less prepared for the material
despite coming in with credits.
Pramod Khargonekar, dean of UF's


College of Engineering, said that-point
could also be applied to his college.
Khargonekar agreed that students who
take their introductory science courses at
UF are provided with a better foundation
for the future.
He said many incoming students heed
the advice of the engineering advisors
because their major requires five years of
extensive math and science.
While both Khargonekar and Spillane
acknowledged that some AP students come
well prepared, they said most UF courses
are more in-depth than their AP counter-
parts.
The same goes for UCLA's Von Blum.
Von Blum said he always does a reme-
dial review in his upper-level courses.
Students' lack of preparation could also
be attributed to a lack of maturity when
being taught the infor-
UF mation in high school,
Academics he said.
The crux of Von
Blum's argument centers on the idea that
entering college with AP credits deprives-
students of their overall undergraduate
experience.
The notion of "let's just get through as
fast as possible" exists, Von Blum said, add-
ing that this mode of thinking cheapens the
college experience.
When asked what type of guidance he
offers his students, Von Blum was blunt.
"I tell them to take their academic work
seriously, and don't bother to take AP," he
said.
Deanne McIntosh, a UF sophomore,
came to college with three credits in
American history.
Because she only came in with three, she
said she didn't feel like she had missed out
on her undergraduate experience.
"If anything, it just helped me but didn't
hurt me in any way," McIntosh said.
Stephanie Foss, also a sophomore, came
to UF. with AP credits in biology, chemistry,
statistics and English.
Foss said taking AP classes was some-
what of a waste. She is reviewing the same
material in her English class.
"The stuff I learned in them helped, but
I retook everything I learned in AP," Foss
said.

Gainesville Republicans praise party's convention


* GOV. CHARLIE CRIST CANCELED
HIS SPEECH BECAUSE OF STORM.

By ANDREA ASUAJE
Alligator Writer

Although the Republican National
Convention got off to a stormy start,
Gainesville Republicans said the convention
has been a hit.
Because of Hurricane Gustav's arrival in
Louisiana and the Florida Panhandle, some
speakers, including Gov. Charlie Crist, had
to stay in their home states rather than head
to Minnesota for the convention, which ends


today.
But Republicans who watched the con-
vention from home said they weren't disap-
pointed.
Bryan Griffin, chairman of the UF College
Republicans, said though there wasn't a huge
opening ceremony on the first day, it hasn't af-
fected the rest of the convention.
"I don't feel like it will be any less of a con-
vention without it," Griffin said.
The convention has been attended by all
three of the district's delegates: Stafford Jones,
chairman of the Alachua County Republican
Party; Donna Solze, state committeewoman
for the Bradford County Republican Party;
and Brian Graham, chairman of the Florida


Federation of Young Republicans.
Speeches by Laura Bush and Fred
Thompson have helped show John McCain's
true character, Griffin said.
Another point of ex-
citement that has rallied
Republicans is McCain's
recently announced run-
ning mate, Sarah Palin, the
governor of Alaska.
a Griffin said he thinks
McCain Palin will attract television
viewers who would like to
know more about her.
Joshua Simmons, chairman of Gators for
McCain, agreed.


Simmons said he was interested in seeing
the response to Palin's speech Wednesday
night, which he thought could establish her as
a strong leader.
Mark McShera, editorial chairman of the
UF College Democrats, said the focuses of
the Republican convention have differed from
those of the Democratic National Convention.
"I haven't heard anything at all about the
economy from the Republicans," McShera
said.
Griffin said the Republicans' convention
has been about character this year.
"The Republican convention has been a
little more about the person," he said. "There's
a person behind the politician."

Library game teaches students about online resources


By TATIANA GONZALEZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

Learning how to use the library
course reserves at UF is now an ad-
venture to save thousands from the
deadly Gator Virus.
"Bioactive" is a new interactive
game about bioterrorism where
players must use key UF library
resources to save themselves and
the university.
Sara Gonzalez, a UF physical sci-
ences librarian and project leader of


the game, said it's a fun way to learn
about the libraries' resources.
"Bioactive" took more than 10
months to create and the collabora-
tive efforts of six UF librarians with-
out funding or formal training.
Valrie Davis, a UF agricultural
sciences librarian and co-project
leader, said the entire project was
volunteer-based.
She said they also had an active
community of programmers they
could go to if they needed help.
"Bioactive" has gone through


two different versions. The first ver-
sion was based on text commands.
Davis said they changed the in-
terface after receiving feedback from
library staff and students who said
they had a hard time navigating the
game.
The current version is a simpler
point-and-click game that uses a
Web browser and doesn't require
the user to download anything,
Gonzalez said.
Davis and Gonzalez said
"Bioactive" has received a lot of


"We think it's a fun way for
students to learn about the
library resources."
Sara Gonzalez
UF librarian

positive response so far, but they're
still looking for students to test the
game.
They said they hope to give
"Bioactive" to instructors to assign
to their classes that use course re-


serves.
They also began working on
a generic version for other librar-
ies to use after presenting it at the
American Library Association
Conference in June.
"We want to make it available to
other libraries that don't have the
man power and the money to create
a similar program," Gonzalez said.

Going Green

Small fee packs

environmental punch
Hopefully, UF will take a big green leap in the right direction
today.
We think they will.
UF's Board of Trustees is finally voting on the environment-
friendly proposal that would cost students a mere 50 cents per
credit hour, which translates to about $645,000 of revenue each
year.
Even better, the proposal leaves the fate of the money in the
hands of those who really know the buildings on campus. UF's
Physical Plant and Housing departments are going to request
upgrades, and then students and faculty get to choose which
requests to fund.
Nobody knows better than the student body which dorms
have the stankest hallways and bathrooms, and no group is
more familiar with the dank, unfriendly nether regions of
Norman and Rolfs Halls than the faculty.
We don't think these two esteemed groups can fail in their
renovation recommendations.
The Editorial Board hopes the Trustees pass this tiny fee that
has such big potential. President Machen wants a top 10 rank-
ing, and we feel this pro-planet-Earth move couldn't hurt.
If nothing else, well accrue some trendy solar panels so we
can be smug about how environmentally conscious our school
is while our friends up on 1-10 trudge around in run-down,
foul-smelling, solar-panel-less Tallahassee.
C'mon, Board of Trustees, do it for the freshmen crammed
in moldy triples and the bookworms who reek of third-story
Marston bookshelves because that air is staler than the Five Star
we ordered on the way home from Grog last Friday.
Actually, just do it because it's a good idea that won't break
our banks.


Road Trip!


As if the bus ride home
didn't take long enough
already, upcoming road con-
struction on Newberry and
Archer is forcing the Editorial
Board to break out the Google
Maps and study Gainesville's
back roads harder than we
study for class.
Starting Monday,
Gainesville residents are
in for delays as the city re-
surfaces about five blocks
on Newberry Road west
of 43rd Street and a small
section of Archer Road east
of 34th Street, according to
the Florida Department of
Transportation.
The Editorial Board can't
help but wonder why this
construction wasn't planned
for the summer, when half
Gainesville skips town and
traffic is at a minimum.
We may not be city plan-
ners, but it does seem strange
that repaving less than six
blocks of roadway will take
two months to complete.
At least the construction is


happening Monday through
Friday and will end at 3:30 in
the afternoon. We don't want
to imagine Gainesville's infa-
mous rush hour traffic and
game-day gridlock being
even worse than usual.
Still, how will we get to
where we need to be when it
really counts like when we
remember the midterm for
that 10:40 class we haven't
been to all semester is in 10
minutes?
The bus has never saved
us in those situations, and
now our cars won't either.
With travel time delayed
about 15 to 20 minutes by
construction, according to
a Florida Department of
Transportation spokeswom-
an, we're buying an extra
alarm clock now.
We're all for filling pot-
holes. But when making the
roads smoother makes travel
conditions rougher for two
months, we have to wonder
if we'd rather just deal with a
few bumps in the road.

Alligator launches u
D ear journalism majors,
S I don't know if anyone has told you, but the
news industry is in a state of emergency.
From June to December 2007, about 2,000 newspaper
jobs were cut across the U.S. And as of Wednesday, more
than 8,000 jobs have been cut in 2008.
Are you wondering how the hell you're going to find a
job once you graduate? Well, join the club.
No, literally, join the Alligator staff.
The Alligator's open house will be held Friday after-
noon from 1 to 5 p.m.
We're hiring for just about every position, including
writers, copy editors, bloggers and online production.
You know from your classes in the College of Journalism
and Communications that you need to have a portfolio and
build up your resume as much as you can before gradua-
tion. Well, the Alligator is the perfect place to do that.
We have more than our share of work to go around, so if
you're ready to put in some elbow grease, we'll gladly put
you to work.
But you won't just get the work you want. You .will
get the guidance, attention and feedback that is lacking in
classes of 300 and internship programs at newspapers that
are busy worrying how to print a newspaper on a reduced
staff.
I know from climbing the ranks at the Alligator that I've
been whipped into shape by being thrown into the report-
ing process from the beginning with a full support network
behind me.
When I first started working here in July 2006, I was a
reporting student who had only written a couple of stories
for the paper with no other newspaper experience. I was a
horrible writer, but I was reliable and desperate for clips.
I remember my first stories on the Student Government

beat, and I remember having them
torn apart by a tenacious uni-
versity editor every night in the
newsroom.
However, it was the same editor
who encouraged me and mentored
Jessica DaSilva me when my stories were com-
letters@alligator.org pletely rearranged and cut in half.
This trademark of tenacious ed-
iting and mentoring is what makes
the learning curve at the Alligator so steep. Let me tell you
from experience, it won't be long before you know the 10-
plus rules for using a comma or how to shoot video.
The Alligator will also prepare you for whatever field
you decide to go into, which is evident in our alumni net-
work.
Some of our alumni include Rep. Charles Bennet, the
longest-serving U.S. representative from Florida; Carl
Hiaasen, author and award-winning columnist for The
Miami Herald; Ian Johnson, Berlin bureau chief for The
Wall Street Journal and Pulitzer Prize-winning correspon-
dent; and Tom Kennedy, managing editor for multimedia at
WashingtonPost.Newsweek Interactive and former director
of photography for National Geographic.
And to give you an idea of how far you can get after a
few semesters, current and recently graduated staffers have
worked at The St. Petersburg Times, The Miami Herald,
CNN.com, Roll Call Newspaper in Washington, D.C., and
even MLB.com.
So don't be a stranger. Come meet us, check us out and
fill out an application.
It might be in your best interest.

Ethanol event


to offer fuel

This weekend, UF students will have more to cel-
ebrate than just another game day.
The Ethanol Promotion and Information Council,
or EPIC, will be giving away free fuel cards and free
fuel for a year as prizes for their first Ultimate Ethanol
Challenge.
In an attempt to promote ethanol usage, EPIC joined
the FOX Tailgate Tour, now in its fifth year, hoping to
reach out to the untapped market of col-
On lege students, said Jenny Powell, EPIC
Campus spokeswoman.
Every hour, the EPIC mascot, Edgar E
Man, will choose two contestants to face off
in the challenge to win a free fuel card. The players will
be asked ethanol-related true or false questions, such as
"Ethanol raises the price of food" or "Ethanol saves me
money at the pump," Powell said.
Event participants could also win free fuel for a year
by registering through text-messaging or by dropping
their name in a registration box, according to an EPIC
news release.
The first 85 people to befriend Edgar E Man on
Facebook will win a prize, Powell said.
The challenge will last from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. and will
take place outside Emerson Alumni Hall.
Students looking to cram on their ethanol knowl-
edge can prepare for the challenge by visiting

UF swimmers experience Olympics


. SHAUNE AND BRETT FRASER
SWAM FOR CAYMAN ISLANDS.

By CAITLIN HOWARD
Alligator Contributing Writer

As Brett zipped up his brother's
speed suit, he whispered quiet words
of encouragement. Shaune was re-
laxed and focused, but he knew once
the buzzer rang, he had a race to
swim. Just as soon as it rang, it seemed
the race was over, and the outcome
would show what his year of training
was worth.
Shaune and Brett Fraser, both
members of the UF men's swim
team, returned to UF in time for fall
classes after competing in the Beijing
2008 Olympic Games for the Cayman
Islands swimming team.
The brothers are from George
Town, Grand Cayman.
They spent a month in China,
where one day of competition de-
termined their fate after a year of
preparation.
"I didn't end up performing as well
as I would have liked to, but I swam
my best times ever, and that's all you
can ask for," said Shaune Fraser, a UF
junior.
Shaune Fraser swam the 200-me-
ter freestyle, 100-meter freestyle and
200-meter butterfly, and he set new
personal records in all three events.
However, he wasn't able to make it


past the preliminary race.
Shaune Fraser made his debut
in the Athens 2004 Olympic Games
when he was 16.
This year, his younger brother
made his own debut.
-"It was overwhelming being.
there, but I just tried to relax
and not think about the
race."
Brett Fraser
UF sophomore

"It was overwhelming being there,
but I just tried to relax and not think
about the race," said Brett Fraser, a UF
sophomore.
Brett Fraser didn't make it past the
preliminary race either, but he had
his career-best swim in the 200-meter
backstroke, which was the only event
he competed in.
"It's such an outstanding achieve-
ment to make the Olympics being
from such a small country," Brett
Fraser said.
He said they didn't even have an
Olympic-sized pool to train in grow-
ing up because there wasn't much
interest in the swim program on the
island -'until Shaune Fraser went to
the Olympics.
"Being from such a small country,
there is less pressure to perform well


because no one expects you to do
anything," Shaune Fraser said. "But
watching the finals makes me want
to be up there too and do something
good for my country."
Besides representing their country,
both brothers said they felt like they
were representing UF as well.
"I felt a sense of pride at the
Olympics being a Gator because there
were so many other former and cur-
rent Gators competing, too," Shaune
Fraser said.
After finishing their events by the
sixth day, the brothers had plenty of
time to explore China.
Shaune Fraser said within the
Olympic Village, there was every kind
of food imaginable from all over the
world.
The brothers also had the opportu-
nity to attend other Olympic events,
including the foot races.
"One of the best parts was watch-
ing Usain Bolt (a Jamaican sprinter)
break the world record in the 100-me-
ter finals," Brett Frasersaid.
Although they didn't win any
medals, they agreed that it was one of
the best experiences of their lives.
They both said they have aspi-
rations of competing in the next
Olympics and improving from this
year's performances.
"The next Olympics are four years
away," Shaune Fraser said.
"We have to take it one season at
a time."

Hopkins doctor speaks at UF about brain research


* DOCTOR SAYS LAB WORK
IS KEY TO CURE.

By RACHEL ARROYO
Alligator Writer

UF students and faculty crowd-
ed the auditorium at the McKnight
Brain Institute on Wednesday to
listen to a medical superstar dis-
cuss his research on brain stem
cells.
In his talk to an audience of
roughly 100, Dr. Alfredo Quinones-
Hinojosa, an associate professor
of neurosurgery at The Johns
Hopkins University, delved into


the role brain stem cells play in
determining why tumors develop
and how they can be treated.
Quinones-Hinojosa, a Mexican
immigrant who became a lead-
ing U.S. brain surgeon, also ap-
peared in the ABC News series
"Hopkins."
The series gave viewers a peek
into the everyday work of employ-
ees at The Johns Hopkins Hospital
in Maryland.
"We love our work as brain sur-
geons, but brain surgery is not go-
ing to be the answer to fighting this
disease," Quinones-Hinojosa told
the crowd, adding that the battle
will largely be fought in the lab.


At the end of the presenta-
tion, Quinones-Hinojosa credited
his lab assistants and colleagues,
including some UF faculty and
students, for their contribution to
his research.
Dr. Dennis
S Steindler, execu-
SOn tive director of the
Campus McKnight Brain
Institute, is a close
friend of Quinones-Hinojosa.
The pair started the "Until We
Cure Brain Tumors" program,
which allows leading researchers
from UF and Johns Hopkins to
work together.
Steindler said the partnership


would continue until a cure for
brain cancer is developed.
"Brain tumors are formidable
foes, and there are a zillion things
to work on," Steindler said.
Steindler, who was instrumen-
tal in bringing Quinones-Hinojosa
to speak, said he couldn't bypass
the opportunity of inviting the
doctor to share his knowledge of
pivotal developments in the field.
Mariela Lopez, vice president
of UF's branch of the Student
National Medical Association,
said she was just as impressed by
Quinones-Hinojosa on Wednesday
as she was the first time she heard
him speak.


Lopez heard Quinones-
Hinojosa discuss his rise from
migrant worker to surgeon when
she was admitted to UF's medical
school in 2006.
"I'm Hispanic, and I think it also
serves as motivation," she said.
Calling his story the "embodi-
ment of the American Dream,"
Quinones-Hinojosa said he is
blessed to be giving back to a coun-
try that has embraced him.
When asked about his journey,
he said it wasn't without obstacles,
but he had help along the way.
"It's a journey filled with a lot of
support from this country and its
people," Quinones-Hinojosa said.

Hanna to spare Florida, -: .- Tganna

heads toward Carolinas '


By CARLA ASTUDILLO
Alligator Contributing Writer
Floridians can rest easy, at least for now.
According to National Hurricane Center
advisories Wednesday, Tropical Storm
Hanna'sprojected path has veered east to-
ward the Carolinas and is expected to miss
Florida.
"At this point, it's doubtful we will even
get rain," said Danny Hinson, a planner for
Alachua County Emergency Management.
Because of the distance of the storm and
its compact size, Alachua County should
just experience breezy conditions on Friday,
Hinson said.
*Previous forecasts predicted that Alachua
County would experience some tropical
storm gusts, which would have caused shel-
ter openings and school closings, Hinson
said.
Storms can be difficult to predict, said


Corene J. Matyas, a UF assistant professor of
geography who specializes in hurricanes.
"It's really complicated to predict
weather patterns because they happen on a
large scale," Matyas said. "How they move
and their intensity depend on how other
weather systems affect them."
At press time Wednesday,
State the state of emergency decla-
News ration issued by Gov. Charlie
Crist on Tuesday was still in
effect.
"The governor was being proactive,"
Hinson said. "These declarations are im-
portant so they can ready the funds to begin
preparing for the storm."
Hinson said Wednesday he expected the
governor's executive order to be rescinded
within 24 hours. The governor's office could
not be reached for comment.
Florida is now out of Tropical Storm
Hanna's way, but two storms, Hurricane


Ike and Tropical Storm Josephine, have
formed in the Atlantic and are heading east.
National Weather Service maps don't yet
show whether they could hit Florida.
Although Florida is safe for now, Hinson


said it's still wise to prepare an emergency
plan and disaster supply kits, including wa-
ter, nonperishable food and first-aid kits.
"Everyone should still maintain their
readiness," he said. "Things can change."

UF ADMINISTRATION

IFAS VP up for chancellor position


By BREIT DALY
Alligator Writer

UF might lose one more
staff member this year, but
this time, budget cuts are not
to blame.
Jimmy Cheek, senior vice
president for the Institute
of Food and Agricultural
Sciences, or IFAS, is one of five
candidates being considered
for the position of chancellor
at the University of Tennessee-
Knoxville.
Cheek, who has been at UF
for 33 years, previously held
the positions of assistant dean
and dean of the College of
Agricultural and Life Sciences.
Cheek said he has accom-
plished a lot during his tenure
at IFAS, but the opportunity to
become chancellor at Tennessee
was something he needed to


explore.
"I'm at the point in my
career that if I wanted to do
something different, I need to
do it now," he said.
A 21-member chancellor-
search committee at Tennessee,
along with a professional
search firm, considered 37 can-
didates for the position, said
Harry McSween, chairman of
the committee.
Twelve were then selected
for preliminary interviews, and
five finalists were chosen from
those, he said.
"We are looking for some-
one who will inspire us to be
the best we can be," McSween
said.
Leadership experience is
also a big factor in making the
decision, he said.
"(Cheek) has a great deal of
experience that would be very


appropriate for this position,"
McSween said.
"He has a sterling record
at UP."
Cheek will travel to
Knoxville
for two
days of
interviews,
meetings
and forums
with the
university's
Cheek president,
chancellor
and vice chancellors, faculty
and students on Sept. 24 and
25.
McSween said the decision
resides with the UT president
and will hopefully be made
within six weeks after the end
of the final interviews.
Kirby Barrick, dean of the
College of Agricultural and Life


Sciences, said the Tennessee
chancellor position would be
a wonderful opportunity for
Cheek, whom he has known
for 25 years, but he doesn't
want to lose an esteemed col-
league.
Barrick said while Cheek
was dean, the quality of
students improved, and a
program of matching assistant-
ships in the graduate program
was established.
"I inherited a college that
was in a good position,"
13arrick said.
If offered the position,
Cheek said he would want to.
ensure he had the support of
Tennessee faculty, staff and stu-
dents, as well as share the same
visions as the university, before
accepting.
"I'd be leaving behind a fan-
tastic university," Cheek said.


Fee would not be immediately enacted following meetings


TRUs I Lt S, from page 1

Physical Plant Department would decide
which projects to fund.
However, the trustees' approval does
not mean the fee will go into effect any
time soon.


All fees must be approved by the
Board of Governors, the State University
System's high-
U F est governing
Administration body, said Bill
Edmonds, the
Board of Governors' spokesman.
UF's Division of Business Affairs


would monitor the fee if passed.
Also discussed during the committee
meetings today will be regulations to the
Student Conduct Code, though a vote will
not be taken.
The full meeting of the Board of
Trustees will be Friday at 10:30 a.m.

DEAN, from page 1

resenting organizations such as the
Center for Leadership and Service
and La Casita.
When staff from the Deanr.of
Students Office presented Zdziarski
with the quilt, tears came to his eyes.
The tears, however, were quickly
replaced by laughter when Patricia
Telles-Irvin, vice president for student
affairs, told stories of Zdziarski's love
for hurricane season.
Stuet For Zdziarski, Telles-
LIent Irvin said hurricane sea-
-- son usually meant camp-
ing out in a bunker with
beef jerky.
She recalled how on his first day
of work Sept. 11, 2001 Zdziarski
parked his car next to a random curb
on campus and immediately headed
to his office.
Surprisingly, he didn't get a park-
ing ticket from the University Police
Department, she added.
When Zdziarski took the stage for
the last time, he said he hadn't real-
ized how his life had been touched
until it was time to leave.
"This is the greatest part of the job:
working with the students and inter-
acting with them," he said.

Oh Sanders reborn from "Death"


Local band talks about changing sound


LANE NIESET AVENUE WRITER
At 2 am. on a main street in
Athens, Ga., a parade is forming.
This is not your average late-night
parade; but a kazoo parade led by
the singer of legendary indie-pop
band The Music Tapes. Members
of local band Oh Sanders followed
a crowd of 300 fellow indie-music
fans, passing spectators and fra-
ternity houses while repeating the
same six notes on the kazoo.
"Athens is a larger Gainesville,"
said Stella Leung, singer and guitar-
ist for Oh Sanders. "It had a reputa-
tion as a town with great pop bands
in its past, but now pop bands are
dying."
The members of Oh Sanders said
they hope to perpetuate pop and
expose Gainesville, a town known
more for punk and indie bands, to
this type of music.


The band will be releasing its
new CD, "The'Death of Nature," at
The Atlantic on Saturday.
The band's show starts at 9 p.m.
and is $6 for those over the age of
21 and $8 for those under 21. The
show will feature three other local
bands: Savages, Quadrophones and
Starmaker, who is from Ormond
Beach.
Jon Waller, the head of Starmaker,
is also releasing his new CD at the
first and possibly only show he will
play. His set will feature members of
Oh Sanders playing back-up instru-
ments.
DJ Cameron, who is the DJ at
"Indie Night" on Thursdays at The
Atlantic, will be spinning between
sets at the show.
One of the unique aspects of the
CD-release show is that Oh Sanders
will play the entire album from start
to finish.


"We are proud of the album and
want to give the people who come
out a preview," Leung said.
SOh Sanders have been working
SWe created the album
ourselves and didn't
have to deal with anyone telling
us what to do.
Duncan McRoberts 9
Oh Sanders bassist
and keyboardist
on "The Death of Nature," which
is their first full-length album fol-
lowing the release of their "Manic
Phase" EP, since May 2007.
"We have built a reputation as a
tween-influenced pop band, but this
album has a darker sound and is
more mature and filled out," Leung
said. "People who haven't heard us
in a while might be surprised by
how different our sound is."


The title of the CD is also the title
of the dosing track of the album and
is derived from a spoken quote on
that track.
The theme throughout all of
the songs is not quite man vs. na-
ture, but more artificial vs. nature,
Leung said. This can be seen with
song titles such as "'lre Concrete
That Surrounds Us" and "Electrical
Fire".
"This theme reflects us as a
band," Leung said. "Lately we have
been influenced by synthesizers but
still have open guitar and organic
sounds creating this juxtaposition."
Duncan McRoberts, who plays
bass and keyboards, recorded and
produced the CD in the living room
of his house in Gainesville. He said
he enjoyed learning how to write
and produce a record and settling
into a sound that fits the band.
"We created the album ourselves
and didn't have to deal with anyone
telling us what to do," McRoberts


said. "We just kept creating music
and stopped when we wanted."
The band didn't experiment
much with the music for the last
album. With "The Death of Nature",
they. took music and instrumental
tracks apart and rearranged things,
allowing themselves to take a step
back and look at the songs as a
whole.
"Everyone in the band is de-
veloping as a musician, learning
their strengths and weaknesses,"
McRoberts said. "Our favorite mo-
ments were when we were working
on a song and someone would have
a small epiphany, and a part of the
song would suddenly make sense."
The song "Conspiracy to
Commit Arson", which is also on
"The Death of Nature," was actually
recorded in different stages. Leung
created a guitar riff and then drum-
mer Chris Petit created the drum
section. McRoberts then handed the

Honky-tonk Dawgs on "Malt Lick'er"


HENRY TASKIER AVENUE WRITER


It was an ordinary day when
Three Legged Dawg band member
Billy Ray took a walk in his yard.
His dog had taken a dump in the
grass. To his amazerrient, a butter-
fly was perched on the excrement
as if to symbolize the triumph of
freedom and beauty over well,
crap.
That was Ray's inspiration for
one of the possible titles of Three
Legged Dawg's upcoming album:
"Dogshit Butterfly." The indepen-
dent local band already has an
album out and will be perform-
ing Thursday night at Lightnin'
Salvage from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., at
Satchel's Pizza, which is located at
1800 NE 23rd Ave.
Three Legged Dawg's music can
best be described as "crunky-tonk."
To understand such an elusive
term, one must first understand
the meaning of "honky-tonk," said
the band members, Billy Ray and


Krissy Mae.
"Honky-tonk is music about
drinking bein' in bars, your wife
leaving' ya and your truck poppin'
out of park and running' over your
dog," said Billy Ray,- who plays,
writes and sings for Three Legged
Dawg. "Crunky-tonk is honky-tonk
with a rougher edge."
Honky-tonk is music
About drinking bein'in
bars, your wife leaving'
ya and your truck poppin' out of
park and running" over your dog.
Billy Ray
lead singer ^

The rougher edge refers to the
influence of metal and punk in
their music.
"One time, we inspired a small
but messy mosh pit," Krissy Mae
said.


"Gainesville is like an energy
vortex," she said. "Sit here long
enough and some strange talent
will beseech you. For me, it was
pounding drums."
While Mae plays the drums in
Three Legged Dawg, Ray plays
the guitar, harmonica, and gitjo,
which is a 6-stringed banjo-guitar.
He also created the art for the cover
of their self-produced album, "Malt
Lick'er."
The band's songs are filled with
classical country themes, which he
described as "lovin' and losin' and
drinking' in between."
"We probably have the saddest
theme song of any band," Krissy
Mae said, referring to the song "3LD
Theme," which begins with the lyr-
ics, "I'm a three-legged dog."
At Lightnin' Salvage, Three
Legged Dawg will play some of its
favorites, covers of old rock songs
and some new original songs, in-
cluding "Eastside Manifesto," a
song about the east Gainesville.

Band talks "Death"

OH SANDERS, from page 13
half-finished song to Josh Tucker, lead guitarist and back-up
vocalist, and told him to "create something brilliant." Tucker
came back with just that something brilliant.
In addition to the band's growth as musicians, Leung spent
her summer as a press intern at a pop label in Athens called
Happy Happy Birthday to Me Records, where she learned
about the recording industry and how it works.
"The label has a realistic approach to running a record
label by taking babysteps to help pull yourself up and build
a fan base making money while working in the independent
industry," she said.
During the summer, Oh Sanders also performed at Athens
PopFest, a festival sponsored by the record label that brings
bands together to promote pop music.
Leung described the Athens PopFest as a "summer camp
for indie kids."
"It opened our eyes to see how small-scale indie-pop
bands can make itby themselves," she said. "I feel that we are
one of the handful of bands in Gainesville that still play rock
music but have more of an indie-pop feel, which makes it fun
and different from the rest of the scene."

Rising above the influence of the soapy Gillette Man


DEVIN CULCLASURE AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER


Two weeks ago, I was watch-
ing TV with some buddies when
I discovered something disturbing
an uncommon occurrence on
TV, for sure.
Anyhow, I had stumbled upon
a new G4 program called "Hurl!"
As you can probably deduce, the
reality show puts participants
through nauseating activities until
they're on the Giant Swing, spew-
ing their last meal across half of the
county fair's crowd.
I've seen enough of my own al-
cohol-induced hurling during my
time at UF sorry, Bernie so
I wasn't about to watch an entire
program dedicated to the subject.
Besides, it only took a glimpse of
"Hurl!" to bolster my belief that
American culture is headed in the
right direction.
I flipped the channel again


and found an advertisement for
a mortgage company. As it turns
out, "Hurl!" would not be the
most depressing TV experience of
my day.
The mortgage ad consisted of
a news broadcast about the hard
economic times and the increasing
amount of home foreclosures. With
this company's help, the sultry re-
porter promised, anybody can get
out of financial trouble.
At first, I was simply amused by
the poor production value with-
out comic intent, the newsroom set
resembled that of "Anchorman" -
and the astounding gall required
by shady lenders to take further
advantage of a problem that was
largely the fault of shady lending.
Besides, who would -possibly
be stupid enough to fall for such
an idiotic commercial? But then


I paused: Wouldn't businesses
generally try to avoid forking out
a stupid amount of money for a
30-second TV spot without good
cause?
There must be some rea-
Sson why advertisers treat
the American public like
a bunch of sex-crazed fifth-grad-
ers (the kind that have been held
back twice already).

Based on the commercials
I've seen, advertisers believe
two things: Most Americans are
too stupid to have information
delivered to them by any means
other than a sledgehammer to the
face, and most Americans would
think about sex 400 times by the
time they finished reading this
sentence. There must be some
reason why advertisers treat the


American public like a bunch of
sex-crazed fifth-graders (the kind
that have been held back twice
already).
For instance, take the Gillette
body wash ad that followed the in-
formative breaking news segment.
In it, a showering man's body is
slowly covered in an awesome blu-
ish-silver liquid after using Gillette
body wash.
After actually suggesting their
product will turn you into one of
the X-Men, Gillette's ad goes on to
show Mr. Confidence burst into a
meeting room at work he practi-
cally kicks the door down in a fit
of manly self-awareness and
then eye-love the hell out of his hot
female co-worker. The spot ends
with their eyes locked, but one can
extrapolate that Mr. Confidence
then sealed a company-saving
deal, kicked his boss in the balls
and took his newfound lady home


for some afternoon delight.
If only it were that easy I use
Gillette shaving cream, an5 the
only female attention I ever get is
"you missed a spot shaving" or
"you cut yourself shaving." But I
know somewhere out there, some
poor fool is rushing to Wal-Mart's
personal hygiene aisle in a sad
attempt to become a radioactive,
womanizing mutant.
I guess in the end, advertis-
ing only bothers me because it
wouldn't be in its current state if
it didn't work. Advertising bothers
me because too often, it is an accu-
rate reflection of our society.
But what can you do? I for one
am going to grab my Apple iPod,
put on my Asics running shoes,
drink some Gatorade Tiger Red
Drive and go for a relaxing run to
lower my blood pressure. At least I
can take solace in the fact that I am
above the influence of advertising.

album review

The Verve's "Forth" album should've stopped at third


ROBERT HILSON AVENUE WRITER


Re&~iting a once-great band
is like donating plasma. Both are
painful to watch and carried out
under the pretext of'some righteous
calling a selfless gift to the face-
less masses also known as, "They
need it more than I do." Richard
Ashcroft, lead singer and reuniter
of TiwVerve, is presumably familiar
with donating plasma and knows
better. These kinds of things one
does for the money.
So the narrative goes like this:
the band, that brought you "Bitter
Sweet Symphony," a would-be
cash cow had its hook not been


stolen pardon, "sampled" from
a Rolling Stones hit, returns to a
throng of adoring Brits ten years
on, selling out arenas in 20 minutes
and in general capitalizing on the
(post-lawsuit) Mick Jagger/Keith
Richards-accredited composition
that in equal parts contributed to the
fame and demise of the band. These
people have not heard "Forth."
The fourth proper release by
the Manchester quartet qualifies
as the obligatory will-tour, must-
have-album collection. Self-parody
might be a bit harsh, but "Forth"
captures four guys, and Ashcroft in

missed anything in the 'i-ie Ashcroft takes a cue

"Love is Noise" was .i and that's probably
a logical choice for a "big the point. When you're

without the awkward choice of a
jungle-animal squawking in the
background. Love might indeed be


thing.
"Noise Epic," on the other hand,
utilizes a spoken-word verse to
bludgeon an otherwise acceptable


garage groove. Plodding along
for eight minutes, the album's
centerpiece wrestles with a grand
ambition that its waves of feedback
and primal screaming never quite
harness
If there's a lesson to be salvaged
from this ear-bleed of an album, it's
this: lifting a Stones song is a good
idea, but borrowing life maxims -
call them Mick-nuggets? from the
Glimmer Twins is not. Like the one
from "Street Fighting Man": "But
what can a poor boy do / Except
to sing for a rock 'n roll band?" It's
faulty logic. Just because you still
can doesn't mean you still should.

Walk by works of art for Friday night fun downtown


SEAN McCAUGHAN AVENUE WRITER


Who knew Gainesville had an art
scene? Certainly not most students.
The scene is small, and the art
can sometimes be awfully folksy but
is worth seeing. Beyond the students
and faculty of the fine arts college or
Gainesville's own crop of neo-hippy
local artists, who even knows what
sort of art the city has to offer? Who
knows there are art galleries down-
town, or what the WARPhaus is?
More people really should take
advantage of these little-known
venues.
The WARPhaus is a UF fine arts
college student art space hidden in a


warehouse located at 818 NW First
Ave.
For a newer development in the
Gainesville art scene, try spending
an evening downtown at the Art
Walk on the last Friday of every
month.
I attended the most recent one,
and I must say it was a fabulous suc-
cess. The Art Walk begins at about 7
p.m., and galleries throw open their
doors, set out some wine along with
the occasional hors d'oeuvre platter
and basically show off. Students,
Gainesville locals and really anyone
else will come out to mill around,


Who, beyond the stu-
S dents and faculty of
the fine arts college or
Gainesville's own crop of
neo-hippy local artists, '
even knows what sort of
art the city has to offer?
walking from gallery to gallery to
eat, drink and look at art. Bands set
up in the streets, and artists perform
live alongside their work. The expe-
rience is a new and different one for
a town where beer pong parties and
keggers can become monotonous.
The art, of course, is of varying
skill, but there is some great stuff


to be seen. Recently the Satellite
building, on Third Street, had some
interesting graffiti work, and Store
101 on Main Street hosted a per-
formance artist as well as a painter
working outside.
When you go, a good place
to start is the Hippodrome State
Theatre on Southeast, Second Place.
It's in the center of the action, and
you can pick up a map showing
what's happening where. The event
usually closes about 10 p.m.
If you're in the mood for some
immediate art, on Friday at around
7 p.m. three on-campus galleries
are having opening receptions. The


University Gallery will be showing
faculty work from the schoolsf art.
Expect good art from people hired
to teach it and decent finger food.
It's in the fine arts courtyard along
Southwest 13th Street.
In the Focus Gallery next door is
the work of Richard Heipp's sum-
mer class in Paris. In the Grinter
Gallery, artists are showing je.e :ce
teapots from the collection of Anna
Calluori Holcombe. Youll find it
on the east side of the University
Auditorium.
SThese exhibits should tide you
over until the next Art Walk on
Sept. 26.

Patchan faces off with


father's alma mater


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

Four months ago, Matt Patchan
didn't know if he would ever play
football again.
The freshman took a bullet in his
left shoulder on May 9 after being
caught as a bystander in a shooting in
a park near Tampa, his hometown.
Now, the defensive tackle looks
poised to make a big impact for UF
when it hosts Miami on Saturday.
This game will be plenty exciting for
Patchan, who spurned the Hurricanes
in favor of the Gators during his senior
year in a major recruiting coup by UF.
Patchan left high school last year as
the No. 11 overall prospect, according
to Rivals.com.
Many expected Patchan to be a lock
to become a Hurricane because his fa-
ther, Matt Patchan II, played for Miami
in 1984-87 under Jimmy Johnson and
alongside Vinny Testaverde. Patchan
now wears No. 71 for the Gators the
same number his father wore when he
played for the Hurricanes.


"That was a knock-down, drag-
out, full-swing recruitment," UF
coach Urban Meyer said on recruiting
Patchan.
The recruiting process also churned
out some verbal jabs.
Patchan made a visit to the Orange
Bowl to watch Miami host Virginia
in November 2007. After seeing the
Hurricanes get blown
out 48-0, Patchan railed
on the Miami players.
otball "There's too many
Football guys that it doesn't
bother them that they
lost the game," Patchan said at the
time to CaneSport.com, an affiliate of
Rivals.com. "There's too many guys
now at 'The U' that [say], It's OK we
lost. Well, what am I going to do to-
night?' Like it doesn't mean anything.
They need to get rid of those types
of guys. Half. those guys in Miami
uniforms shouldn't be there they
physically don't cut it."
UF officials did not make Patchan
available for comment this week.
Meyer said Monday he would try

UF FOOTBALL

Full lineup to show Saturday


By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Staff Writer
khyppolite@alligator.org

It looks like UF will have its full comple-
ment of players for Saturday's matchup against
Miami.
Coach Urban Meyer confirmed Wednesday
that wide receiver Percy Harvin, linebacker
Brandon Spikes and offensive lineman Jim Tartt
would be available.
Harvin has been recovering from April heel
surgery, Spikes suffered a foot injury during
practice last week and Tartt has been battling a
shoulder injury
"They'll play," Meyer said. "Percy was
gimping around a little bit and Brandon looked
fine to me."
Before Wednesday, Meyer had said he was
not 100 percent sure if Harvin or Spikes would
play.
Meyer said he was unsure whether Harvin
and Spikes would start Saturday or how many
snaps they would receive.

UNEXPECTED HEROES: With all of the of-
fensive fireworks on display in the Gators'
opener against Hawaii, it would seem logical
that Meyer would name Jeff Demps or Chris


Rainey the offensive player of the game.
Instead, the entire offensive line graded out
as champions. Guard Mike Pouncey led the
way with a 94 percent, according to Meyer, who
named him the offensive player of the game.
"I was shocked at first," Pouncey said.
"But everyone was telling me hard work
pays off."
I'm expecting a win."
Carl Moore
UFjunior receiver

NEW TERRITORY: Junior college transfer Carl
Moore is set to experience his first rivalry
game as a member of the Gators.
The California native is keeping his expecta-
tions relatively simple, though.
"I'm expecting a win," he said.
"I come into every game the same, hoping
to do what I have to do to help the team get the
win."
According to Moore, UF has yet to show its
full hand offensively, something the Hurricanes
should be concerned about.
"We just played and got a couple of big
breaks, so we couldn't really open up the of-
fense," Moore said.


O-line deserves attention


When Jeff Demps sneaks
through Miami's defensive
line, avert your eyes.
Look the other way when Chris
Rainey jukes and shakes his way for
a 20-plus-yard gain. Even when Percy
Harvin makes his season debut this
weekend, don't get giddy when he
touches the ball.
And please, try to refrain from
making ga-ga eyes at Timmy Tebow.
Fellas, I'm talking to you, too.
Instead, check out the big boys
gyrating down front. It shouldn't be
that hard, either. We're talking about
300-plus pounds of man here.
Don't discount the speed the
Gators have. It's something every
coach would love to have, and the
options it provides offensively are nu-
merous. But not even Demps, Rainey
or Harvin could make those 10- and
20-yard sprints if the big guys didn't
open creases for them.

With the type of spread offense the

the line or down the field, there are
no big plays. No more hearing the
phrase "Mercy, Percy" or watching
defensive backs scratch their heads as
UF's athletes run past them.
Even receiver Carl Moore knows
how important the blocking scheme
is to the Gators' success.
"(The) offensive line dominated
really good," Moore said. "Everybody
was dominating blocking. That's

Gators' feet find way to net

UF finished with six goals Sunday


By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Alligator Writer
cyazbec@alligator.org

Unlike Friday's 1-0 loss to
Central Florida, the UF soccer
team's Saturday-moring meet-
ing was filled with goals, the
biggest of which was trying to
figure out a way to capitalize on
scoring opportunities.
"One of our
main goals
was not only to
shoot the ball,
but to finish
it," senior for-
ward Megan




The Gators outshot the
Knights 17-6.
"Definitely in the first 20, 25
minutes of the second half we
had enough chances to win two
or three games," UF coach Becky
Burleigh said after the loss.
"But the bottom line is you
gotta put 'em in the back of the
net."
UF faced similar difficul-
ties last season, outshooting its


opponents by double figures
in each of its two conference
losses.
The Gators outshot the
Knights 24-5 in last year's
NCAA second round but need-
ed to hold on in penalty kicks to
win 0-0, 4-3.
"It's really frustrating, espe-
cially as a goalkeeper, because
obviously we can't score,"
sophomore Katie Fraine said.
"But at the same time, I feel
like it's really hopeful to watch
us have opportunity after op-
portunity."
After losing the home open-
er, it appeared the No. 23 Gators
got the message when they de-
livered a 6-1 rout of Nebraska
on Sunday.
The six goals came on 14
shots.
"We created just as many
good opportunities on Friday
as we did (Sunday)," Burleigh
said.
"(Sunday), what the differ-
ence was we just finished them.
There were some really great
goals, and I think we just need
to build on this."
Burleigh said it's important
to get the first goal because
that can create a snowball ef-


fect, which is what happened
Sunday.
Not being able to convert,
however, gives the opponent
hope to stay in the game -
which is what happened against
the Knights.
Kerns, who scored two goals
against the Cornhuskers, wasn't
sure what the difference be-
tween the two matches was, but
she did know one thing.
"One of our main goals
was not only to shoot the
ball but to finish it."
Megan Kerns
Senior UF forward

"The shots were just falling
for us (Sunday)," she said.
Freshman midfielder Tahnai
Annis, who added the second
goal of her college career, no-
ticed more aggressive play in
the box.
"We came out with a ven-
geance not being able to score
Friday, and just wanted to
prove basically to ourselves
and everyone else that it wasn't
just a fluke that we can create
chances," Annis said. "We can
also finish them."

UF FOOTBALL

More than 20 recruits will attend UF-Miami showdown


By MIKE DIFERDINANDO
^. Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org
When the Gators and Hurricanes meet
in The Swamp on Saturday, more than just a
game will be on the line.
With more than 20 nationally ranked pros-
pects planning to be in attendance, the two
in-sti powers will be playing for the future
of their programs.
Throughout his tenure at UF, coach Urban
Meyer has picked out the two biggest home
games of the season to host recruits on their
official visits. This is one of those weekends.
Every run, pass and tackle will be a
glimpse into the future for some of the state's
brightest high school football stars.
Trent Richardson, one of the state's best
running backs, will make the drive down
from Pensacola on Saturday.
Richardson has verbally committed to
Alabama but is still making visits to other


schools.
UF and LSU have both been ri the race for
the Escambia High senior's services.
Richardson has stated he would like to
play in the Southeastern Conference, but
Miami has made a strong push for the five-
star prospect.
Other in-state prospects planning to be
in attendance include Sanford wide receiver
Andre Debose and Tampa tight end Orson
Charles.
One prospect who is disappointed he
won't be there for the game is Jheranie Boyd.
The 6-foot-2 wide receiver planned to
make the drive from Ashbrook, N.C., for the
game, but will be unable to make it due to a
change in plans.
He said he hopes to make it to another
game this season.
Boyd, who has long been considered to
be leaning toward Clemson, is now strongly
considering the Gators after watching the
Tigers get dismantled by Alabama over the


weekend. class that included eight players from South

Freshman played limited snaps against Hawaii


PATCHAN, from page 24

to keep Patchan's patented energy in check
this week to keep him focused.
"I'm trying to keep him sheltered all
week," Meyer said. "He's out of his mind
to begin with."
The freshman enrolled early at UF,
coming to Gainesville in January and tak-
ing the practice field by storm. Coaches
originally had him pegged as an offensive
lineman but quickly had him switch sides.
Patchan flourished there as well and ended
spring ball as a starter at defensive tackle.


The shooting ended any chance? of 'Il.:knowGod.wawawatching me and giving.

BRIAN, from page 24

what we got to do to win."
When Rainey scored on a 33-yard
scamper Saturday, wideout Riley Cooper
cleared out the last Hawaii defender in
what Meyer called a "seven-second block
clinic."
Without starting guard Jim Tartt, who-
is still recovering from his third shoulder
surgery, the offensive line was impressive
Saturday. Last season, it wasn't as notice.^
able because the Gators' best running
backs were a wide receiver and quarter-
back.
Now with Rainey, Demps and a healthy
Emmanuel Moody in the backfield, this of-
fensive line will start getting the recogni-
tion it deserves.
Mike Pouncey was named the offensive
player of the game Saturday.
While the system Meyer uses to "grade
out" players appears arbitrary, Pouncey
being named the top offensive player
when the Gators scored 56 points tells you
something.
"I really think they deserved it,"
Pouncey said of the running backs. "With
Rainey and Demps in the backfield, all
you've got to do is hold your block for two
seconds. When they gave it to me, I guess
they felt sorry for me."
Actually, it's the opponent's defen-
sive line you should feel sorry for. Phil
Trautwein, Jason Watkins, Maurkice and
Mike Pouncey have gelled as one deep,
cohesive unit, and that's not good news for
anybody already clueless on how to stop
UF's offensive juggernaut.
"Everybody says we've got the stron-
gest unit on the team right now," Maurkice
said.
Well, there's that Tebow guy who has
the quarterback situation down pretty
Swell. Other than that, though, it's hard to
argue the offensive lie isn't tle key to the"' -
Gators' success. Offensive line coach Ste ,
Addazio has said he has several pla3~
who can play multiple positions on the
line, and it's no coincidence three of UF's
11 team captains play there (Trautwein,
Watkins and Tartt). They're large leaders
- literally and figuratively.
So the next time you see any of these
jolly giants on campus, give them a nice
pat on the back. Just don't buy them din-
ner. Your bank account can't handle that.
