UF to


aunch new advertising campaign


* THE CAMPAIGN WILL REPLACE
THE GATOR NATION CAMPAIGN.

By JACQUELYN WEINER
Alligator Writer

UF commercials featuring alumni en-
couraging each other to "Go write the great
American novel" or to "Go cure cancer" will
soon retire.


UF officials are preparing to launch a new
advertising campaign called "When Did You
Become A Florida Gator?" to replace its The
Gator Nation campaign.
The television spot for the new campaign,
which highlights students and alumni de-
scribing the moment they realized they were
Gators for life, will launch the day of the
UF-Georgia football game on Nov. 1, said
Joseph Hice, UF associate vice president for


marketing and public relations.
The new campaign will also feature print
and radio ads, Hice said.
UF Some of the print ads
Marketing have already debuted in
this season's football pro-
grams, he said.
The original commercial for The Gator
Nation campaign was launched in 2005, ac-
cording to the campaign's Web site.


Dan Williams, UF's director of market-
ing, said the "Go Gators" ads were extreme-
ly successful, but UF felt that it was time for
a change.
UF typically reviews its advertising on a
yearly basis, he said.
Although the "Go Gators" ads will be
tucked away, he said fans should see the
new campaign as an evolution rather than

Gainesville to restore prairie


By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Staff Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org
After years of being a repository for,
wastewater of nearby suburbs, Paynes Prairie
Preserve State Park could soon return to the
conditions of a century ago.
A $23 million project aims to create 1,300
acres of new wetlands and improve those that
have become tangled and overgrown.
Last week, Gainesville officials began plan-
ning and permitting for the project, which will
decrease the nitrogen and phosphorus in the
water that flows across Paynes Prairie and east
into the Alachua Sink.
The excess nutrients in the water have
caused non-native plants, such as the Chinese
tallow tree, to choke out the prairie's native

statewide, really appreciate the
value of the wetlands."

the project.

UF research funding declines


UF's research funds took a dip this year,
falling about 3 percent from a record high the
year before.
UF received $561.6 million in research fund-
ing in the 2007-2008 fiscal year, according to a
news release Monday.
The previous year, UF earned $583 million.
Win Phillips, UF's vice president for re-
search, said the roughly $21 million loss could
have resulted from UF's hiring fewer faculty
last year.
Phillips said he expects the amount of fund-
ing to increase for 2008-2009.
"Last year in awards we hit an all-time high,
so everybody's very busy doing work on the
awards that they got last year," Phillips said.
Some current projects include studies about
evolving flu-causing pathogens and agricul-
tural carbon sequestration, which reduces the
amount of carbon dioxide released into the
earth's atmosphere, he said.


UF's expenditures hit a record high last year,
which indicates research grants are being put to
good use, he said.
UF faculty are also involved in the National
Ecological Observatory Network project, which
is a long-term project docu-
UF meeting environmental change
Research and awarded by the National
Science Foundation, he said.
Phillips said most of the grants come from
the federal government, though some appli-
cants have tapped into the private sector for
funds.
The Office of Research processes two grant
contracts every hour, or about 5,000 a year,
Phillips said. Nearly 4,500 grants are received
out of all those applied for.
"It shows our faculty are top-notch," he said.
"They really know their stuff."

Energy expert discourages oil use

E FORMER ENERGY OFFICIAL EMPHASIZES
REDUCING DEPENDENCE ON FOREIGH OIL.

By DAVID CUMMING
Alligator Contributing Writer

Cars may soon be running on slime.
If alternative forms of energy prove successful,
..... .Americans could someday drive cars powered by
algae-based fuel and hybrids with rechargeable
batteries, said Jay Hakes, former administrator of
the U.S. Energy Information Administration.
More than 100 people flocked to the Bob
Graham Center for Public Service in Pugh Hall
to listen to Hakes speak about his book, "A
Declaration of Energy Independence."
In his speech, Hakes who is the director
of the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and
*Museum also offered his perspective on the
energy crisis facing the U.S.
Decades of presidential leadership failed to take
initiatives to change the country's dependence on
foreign oil and seek other alternatives.
"It's time to rise above the political static and
take long term solutions to these answers," he
said.
Hakes said his book is more about the oil crisis
than the climate crisis, but the two interact when it
comes to future energy modifications.
He said the U.S. must focus on alternative
forms of energy that offer great promises.
Strict requirements on utilities are in the future,
he said.
Energy inefficient products, such as incandes-
cent lighting, may become obsolete in the next 10
. years.
Erin Green/Alligator "We've dug ourselves in this hole of oil," Hakes
Jay Hakes, director of the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library said.
"We continue to dig deeper in the hole of cli-
and Museum, speaks at Pugh Hall on Monday evening. "We continue to dig deeper in the hole of c
mate change."

College ranks


No. 6 in U.S.


for Hispanics

As a recent jump in a national ranking indi-
cates, the UF College of Engineering's efforts to
recruit a diverse student body are succeeding.
A poll released earlier this month by Hispanic
Business magazine ranked UF No. 6 among the
top 10 engineering schools for Hispanic students.
High rankings among Hispanic engineering
students are nothing new for the college, said
Pramod Khargonekar, the
U F College of Engineering dean.
Academics "We are usually top two,
top three with Hispanic un-
dergraduates in the nation," Khargonekar said.
In 2007, the college awarded more bachelor's
degrees to Hispanic engineering students than
any other university in the U.S., according to the
college's Web site.
About 14 percent of the college's undergradu-
ates are Hispanic, Khargonekar said.
The college targets minorities through fresh-
man programs, such as the Successful transition
through Enhanced Preparation for Undergraduate
Programs, or STEPUP.
Diversity is key to the college's makeup be-
cause it helps students learn to work with differ-
ent types of people.
"Having a high-quality, diverse student body
makes us a very attractive place for companies to
come and recruit," Khargonekar said.

Reitz shows 9/11 film


* FILM FOCUSED ON HATE
CRIMES FOLLOWING ATTACKS.

By BRAD GOLDBACH
Alligator Contributing Writer
Some Sikh, Arab and Muslim
Americans became targets of hate
crimes in the weeks following Sept. 11
for wearing a turban and a beard, char-
acteristics Americans began to associate
with terrorists.
To raise awareness of these crimes,
a documentary titled "Divided We
Fall: Americans in the Aftermath" was
shown to about 50 people in the Reitz
Union Auditorium on Monday.
Valarie Kaur, the filmmaker, traveled
across the U.S. to interview victims of
attacks when she was a college student.
"They were described as isolated
incidents, but they were not isolated,"
Kaur said in the documentary. "They
were happening everywhere across


America."
The movie's message prompted a
subsequent discussion about diversity
and how people should come to under-
stand and accept other cultures.
"I understand why people want
to be left alone," said Farah Gulaid, a
nutrition senior. "But I want to tell you.
Just educate people, and let them know
who you are."
Tamara Cohen, UF's director of
Multicultural and Diversity Affairs,
said popular culture complicates the
image of an American. People want to
claim a monolithic vision of America
even though demographics are chang-
ing, she said.
. Kaur's reason for making the docu-
mentary was simple.
"So other people don't look at the
turban and see fear, hatred, something
laughable, something less than hu-
man," she said. "So people don't look
at the turban and see an enemy where I
see a brother."


Students watch the film "Divided We Fall: Americans in the Aftermath," at the Reitz Union Audito-
rium on Monday evening. The film focuses on hate crimes since 9/11.

Editorial


Go Gators

Go start a new

advertising campaign
U F's world-famous and exceedingly popular "Go
Gator Nation" ad campaign has finally come to a
end.
Finally. Thank the advertising gods.
We're as pro-Gator as everyone else, but those commer-
cials were so cheesy and corny that they were almost vomit-
inducing.
Go cure cancer? That's cool: Everyone wants to do that.
We'll stand by that one.
Go write the great American novel? Not so much. Maybe
if they said, "Go start a blog about your least favorite ad cam-
paigns," it would've hit home.
Go to Mars? Sure thing, chief we're right behind you.
That one doesn't even sound nice.
Don't get us wrong, the lines were worth reusing because
they usually garner at least a hey-I-kind-of-remember-what-
you're-talking-about sentiment, which comes in handy when
you're at the UF-Georgia game and the Jager is urging you to
address each orange-and-blue-clad alumni you see circling
the Jacksonville Landing.
For those few-and-far-between instances, the Editorial
Board is grateful.
But no one can argue the absurdity of passing by mirrored
windows and seeing yourself in an astronaut's space suit.
Every time we look at our reflections all we see is a sweat-
ier version of ourselves with bags under our eyes and a stain
on our shirts that managed to dodge the magical powers of
our ever-present Tide to Go pens.
We'll miss the "Go Gator Nation" ads for their chronic,
and sometimes nauseating, cheerfulness, but we can't wait
to see how UF will top that classic series.


Prairie Project


The Editorial Board is
pleased to see several
state and local agen-
cies coming to the rescue of
an often-overlooked local
treasure.
. Paynes Prairie Preserve
State Park is more than just
a swampy field to drive
through on the way to Lake
Wauburg. It's a designated
National Natural Landmark
and has been written about
since 1774.
Since naturalists began
noting its scenic beauty
and variety of wildlife, the
Prairie has seen some seri-
ous environmental changes
in the past 200 years, some
of which were for the worst.
Plants foreign to the area
have moved in, and thanks
to an excess of nutrients
in the water, these prairie-
crashing plants look like
they've been swapping sy-
ringes with Jose Canseco.
Because of its recent


growth spurt, the preserve
is overgrown and in need of
some relief to restore it to its
normal, healthy state.
In response, several
groups around the state are
donating money to restore
Paynes Prairie's natural
beauty, and why shouldn't
they?
The preserve is ingrained
in this community's DNA,
so the appropriate measures
should be taken to protect
Alachua County's cultural
identity.
It's easy to take it for
granted as you're flying by
at 70 mph, but not many
areas have the luxury of
being right on top of a na-
tionally recognized wildlife
landmark.
The project will only take
five years to restore the park
to what it looked like half a
century ago, and we believe
that it'll be five years well
worth it.

Guest column

Libertarian candidate has no chance


W ho is Bob Barr?
Pundits on both the right and left of the
political spectrum are claiming that this four-
term congressman from Georgia's rural 7th Congressional
District has a shot of drawing enough voters away from
Sen. John McCain to propel his democratic rival into the
White House.
When it comes down to it, Auburn has a better chance
of beating UF this year than Bob Barr has of impacting the
presidential race in any meaningful way.
Abrief history lesson demonstrates why the Libertarian
Party candidate has a minute chance of affecting this elec-
tion.
In 1972, the Libertarian Party received national ballot
access. It has been on the ballot every year since. However,
the party's electoral success over that time frame was
modest at best, never topping more than a whopping 1.1
percent of the national vote total and capturing a grand
total of zero electoral votes.
Barr is different, they protest.
Mainstream media loves to point out that he has eight
years of experience under the banner of the Republican
Party, and the heightened political atmosphere means he
has a unique chance to make an impact. Convincing as
this narrative is, it's happened before, and it failed.
Rep. Ron Paul of Texas ran as the Libertarian Party's
1988 candidate with eight years of experience as a con-
gressman under his belt. Paul ended Election Day with
half a percent of the national vote total.
Then there are the polls that show Barr amassing as
much as 6 percent of the national vote total. Unfortunately
for Barr, leads like this simply do not hold.
The last time a third-party candidate actually earned
close to 6 percent of the national vote was in 2000 when
Ralph Nader grabbed 2.7 percent as the Green Party can-


Kyle Robisch


didate.
Nader was a new candidate
with a new, progressive message.
The party came into existence only
four years earlier, and the Green
movement was just catching on.
The Libertarian Party can claim no


letters@alligator.org such momentum.
Barr also has several glaring
disadvantages as a candidate that
will downplay his impact in this election. His greatest det-
riment will be his poor fundraising numbers. Currently,
he is on track to raise less than $1.5 million before Election
Day.
To put that into perspective, in 2000, Ralph Nader
raised $8.5 million. The 2000 Libertarian candidate, Harry
Browne, raised $2.1 million and earned less than half a
percent of the vote total.
His underwhelming fundraising capacity is com-
pounded by his inability to kick-start his base. Libertarian
ideals espouse government non-intervention, but Barr
voted to authorize the war in Iraq, favored the USA Patriot
Act and introduced the Defense of Marriage Act of 1996.
While it may seem exciting to cast Barr as a spoiler, it
just isn't plausible.
The election will come down to Obama's ability to
convince America that he is ready to lead and McCain's
ability to do the opposite.
Barr will likely become an afterthought as he gets
pushed to the side, forcing him to watch the big dogs go at
it without getting a shot of his own.
Then again, Auburn could be waiting for the Gators in
Atlanta this December.
Kyle Robisch is a second-year political science and econom-
ics student.


The views expressed here are not necessarily those of the Alligator.

Growl doesn't cater to students
The largest student-run pep ral-
ly has once again failed to deliver a
show for students. Instead, it will
feature the Steve Miller Band play-
ing their greatest hits for alumni.
I understand that alumni are
financially important to the suc-
cess of Gator Growl and want to
enjoy it as well, but then it should
be called the Student Pep Rally for
Alumni.
No one between the ages of 18
and 25 cares about that band.

Scalping shouldn't ruin games
I was pleased with Marc
Weinoth's article Friday.
Scalping is unfair to honest stu-
dents, but my main response to his
article didn't have much to do with
its content. My first thought was,
"Why is football such a big deal?"
Football games are fun, but they
are just games.
The worst part about scalping


is these jerks get business because
someone is so desperate to see a
game he or she would pay $100 or
more for a $10 student ticket.
OK, you didn't win the ticket
lottery, and you're upset. You're
frustrated and probably find your-
self saying, "It's not fair."
Instead of pouting about it or
giving the scalpers your business,
make an event of it at home. Watch
the game on TV with your class-
mates who didn't win the lotto
either.
It won't be as fui as going to
the game, but it's way better than

Hundreds of UF students
passed through the Volunteer
Organization Fair on Monday
to learn how they could serve
Gainesville.
The Center for Leadership and
Service, a Dean of Students Office
program, brought more than 50
volunteer organizations to the
fair at the Reitz Union Colonnade,
said Andrew Perrone, the center's
assistant director.
The center hosts the fair every
fall and spring semester, Perrone
said. About 500 people visited the
fair, he said.
Amy Panikowski, a Peace
Corps recruiter at UF, said
Monday's event was the best
turnout of the five volunteer fairs
she has worked.
"A lot of students are realizing


talk is cheap," she said. "You have
to really act on it."
Panikowski thinks the presi-
dential campaign and recent
natural disasters have encouraged
people do to their part, she said.
Jeremy Grossman, director of
Florida Alternative Breaks, said
Hurricane Katrina gave a big
push for service at his organiza-
tion, which organizes

Campus trips across the coun-
try.
Paul King, UF marketing ju-
nior, said he came to the fair to
find an organization that will
fulfill the 20-hour volunteer re-
quirement for his Exceptional
People class.
After about 30 minutes of
browsing and gathering fliers, he
said he is considering St. Francis
House and Oak Hammock retire-
ment community.

Engineering dean to stay through academic year


* DEAN PRAMOD KHARGONEKAR
ORIGINALLY RESIGNED IN DECEMBER.

By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Writer

College of Engineering Dean Pramod
Khargonekar, whose resignation was an-
nounced in December, has decided to stay
on as the college's dean through the end of
this academic year.
The dean search was postponed because
of tight budgets on the state and university
level, said UF Provost Joe Glover.
"It doesn't seem like the optimum time


to begin a national search for a new dean,"
Glover said.
The dean search committee stopped
meeting in March after six meetings, accord-
ing to records on UF's Web site.
Glover said UF would examine the finan-
cial situation in December or January and
decide then whether to resume the search.
"I think what we're looking for is an indi-
cation that the state is beginning to recover,"
he said.
He said it is difficult to conduct a search
for a new dean in the face of an uncertain
budget.
"Typically, people who are interested in
coming to the university want to have a very


clear picture on the outlook for
sity budget and for the resource
might be able to count on in th

Economy leaves college graduates searching for jobs


Entry-level jobs hit hardest during recent downturn

Students across the' country
are beginning to discover that a
college degree doesn't guarantee
a career anymore.
Unemployment rates for
people ages 20 to 24 have bal-
looned to 9.8 percent according
to the U.S. Department of Labor,
a number that has left college


graduates scratching their heads

Jessica Sullivan graduated
from UF with a bachelor's degree
in psychology and health educa-
tion and years of work experi-
ence, but she was unprepared
for a slumping economy and a
highly competitive job market.
"It's frustrating because it
feels like it's individual, but I


have friends having the same
.problem," Sullivan said.
"I kind of gave up on finding
a job that utilized my degrees,"
she said.
Sullivan had an internship at
the Alachua County Crisis Center
gaining hands-on experience.
"I had a lot of background in
that," she said. "I'd been doing
face-to-face counseling for a few
years."


Even with her employment

to even find secretarial work.

Life Sullivan said.
Professor David
Denslow, a research economist

Florida's economy is worse than


the rest of the country.
"The number of people em-
ployed is declining, and when
that happens the entry level is
always hit hard," Denslow said.
If people enter the workforce
when the economy is down, he
said, they remain at a lower eco-

enter at a more prosperous time.
"It's a good time to go. ahead
and take that trip to Europe or

said.

Video booth to allow alumni, students to share Gator memories


BRANDING, from page 1


a change.
"The spot continues the same theme but
just takes a fresher, maybe a little more emo-
tional, approach to the subject," Williams.
said.
The new television spot will be filmed
next week, he said, and will be a' series of
vignettes that depict situations in which a
person first realized they were a Gator.
"It could be something as basic as when
you received your acceptance letter to when


a loved one was saved due to some of our
medical research," he said.
In addition to the new advertisements,
the GoGatorNation.com Web site is being
revamped into InsidetheGatorNation.com
to correspond with the "Inside the Gator
Nation" online newsletter, he said.
In doing this, UF hopes to attract more
attention to the Web site and provide more
news content, Williams said.
The updated site will offer fans the
chance to submit pictures, videos and per-
sonal stories to illustrate their moment of
realization.
Some of the videos may be shown in the


stadium during football games, Hice said.
In addition, students and alumni will
be able to record their "When Did You
Become A Florida Gator?"
memories at a traveling
video booth that will be
stationed at various cam-
pus and sporting events,
Hice said.
The booth is still being
developed, although it
illiams will probably consist of a
portable tent and a video camera, Williams
said.
The first video clips for the Web site were


shot Friday at the Board of Trustees meeting,
he said.
About five UF trustees recorded their
UF memories on camera for the Web site.
The videos should be posted online by next
week, he said.
Although the total cost of the campaign
cannot be determined until after production,
Williams said the annual budget for adver-
tising is about $1 million.
Williams said he hopes to have the travel-
ing video booth up and running by one of
the next home football games so fans can
join the trustees in sharing their favorite
Gator moments.


Plan will remove invasive

species, enhance wetlands


PRAIRIE,from page 1

Transportation and other agencies.
"A lot of people, not just local,
but statewide, really appreciate the
value of the wetlands," Lippincott
said.
Water that hydrates the prai-
rie's wetlands comes from the
Sweetwater Branch, which origi-
nates in northeast Gainesville's
Duck Pond neighborhood,
Lippincott said.
Most of the city's runoff storm
water and some of its garbage
- runs into the creek, which
picks up more nitrogen and phos-
phorus when it flows south past
Gainesville Regional Utilities'
Main Street Wastewater Treatment
Plant.
The creek flows into a canal cut
across the prairie, where it deposits
much of the nutrients, and into the
Alachua Sink, where the depart-
ment of environmental protection
takes samples to measure Alachua
County's water quality.
The plan, which has been under
discussion for five years, is two-
fold, Lippincott said.
First, $2 million in equipment
upgrades at the reclamation facil-
ity will cut nitrogen down to 8 mil-
ligrams per liter and phosphorus
down to 0.3 milligrams per liter,
according to a city funding ap-
plication.


"The water coming out of the
enhancement will be more like the
water coming out of Sweetwater
200 years ago," Lippincott said.
The canal that carries the
Sweetwater Branch through the
prairie will also be redistributed
into multiple tributaries.
The redistribution will enhance
between 100 and 150 acres on the
northern rim of the prairie that
have been affected by the water's
nutrients.
It will also carry water over a
larger area, creat-
Local ing 1,300 additional
News acres of wetlands on
the prairie.
The canal that
currently runs into the sink isn't
natural, Lippincott said. It was dug
in the 1950s to give farmers more
land to graze cattle.
The enhanced wetlands, which
have become inaccessible because
of overgrowth, will be able to sup-
port a boardwalk where visitors
can observe alligators and Sandhill
Cranes, Lippincott said.
The levels of nitrogen and
phosphorus in the Alachua Sink
are not causing a health threat,
said Stewart Pearson, the City of
Gainesville's head of storm water
management. Although the sink's
water eventually flows into the
aquifer, it would take 100 years for
it to reach the north of town, where
GRU pumps its water, he said.


aaran Hsu / Alligator state
A flower rises out of Duck Pond, the origin of Sweetwater Branch, which carries Gainesville's stormwater
into Paynes Prairie. City officials recently proposed a $23 million project to clean up the stormwater
entering Paynes Prairie.


If standards are not met, GRU
could face fines from the depart-
ment of environmental protection,
said Gina Hawkins, spokeswoman
for the City of Gainesville's depart-
ment of public works.
While $23 million may seem
like a hefty price tag, it may be just
"a drop in the bucket" compared
to fines that could accrue if noth-
ing is done, Hawkins said.
Pearson said that it's not clear


how much of the money is coming
from the city, but he estimates it
will be about 80 to 90 percent.
Most of that will come from
GRU storm water and wastewater
utility fees, Pearson said.
The storm water utility fees are
expected to raise more than $3 mil-
lion, and the wastewater fees will
raise more than $14 million, ac-
cording to city documents. The de-
partment of transportation and the


St. Johns River Water Management
District have also pledged funds to
the project.
"The city is requesting funds
from everywhere it can think of,"
Lippincott said.
After five years of discussion,
Pearson said the project now
seems like a reality.
"We believe it is," he said. "It's
going to take four years to build,
but we believe it is."

Studying abroad provides numerous benefits


, In an ever-expanding global world, a
study-abroad experience could be the next
big ticket to landing a dream job.
Study-abroad experiences combine dif-
ferent studies, professors and personalities
to create a "once in a lifetime experience,"
said graduate student and study-abroad
participant Brian Canning.
The University of Florida's College of
Journalism and Communications adven-
ture to Greece and Spain this summer was
one of those experiences.
Michael Weigold, advertising professor,
started the program in 2003. What began
as a 13-person trip just five years ago grew
to include 85 students and five professors
for this year's trip.
"We want students to say, 'Wow, I feel
differently about the world' and 'This.was
the best month of my life,'" Weigold said.
Social networking while traveling is an-
other advantage of studying abroad, Weigold
.said. "Some of my students from the first trip
now work in New York City, and they eat
lunch together all the time."
Studying abroad also is a great addition
to a resume.


Stacey Davidson, Jackie Horstmann and
Maya Thomas tour the Temple of Olympian
Zeus (Athens).


Susanne Hill, UF International Center
coordinator, said that potential employ-
ers will look favorably upon someone
with a study-abroad experience listed on
their resume.
According to Janis Page, UF public rela-
tions and study-abroad professor, studying
abroad helps students become well-round-
ed global citizens.
"You see things differently...It's an
exponential investment," she said.
"In general, younger people are more
idealistic and tend to be more receptive
to other cultures, languages and points of
view," said Brad Pick, a Barcelona public
relations practitioner for Edelman PR.
"Their eagerness to absorb and apply new
experiences makes them better candidates
when they enter the labor marker and
are just more well-rounded individuals in
general.
"Follow your passions, your dreams. If
you want to live and work overseas, take
action to make sure it happens," Pick said.

New Web site provides easy access to college tours


Go no farther than your computer
screen for tours of colleges across the
United States, thanks to Ron Reis.
When Reis saw that his high-school-
aged nephew in New Jersey was interested
in applying to the University of Florida but
was unable to travel for a school tour, he
took the problem into his own hands. Reis
co-founded a new company, YOUniversity
TV, which uses online technology to create
video tours that offer many of the aspects of
traditional campus walking tours.
"As they say, necessity is the mother of
invention," Reis said.
The company works with college com-
munication offices to create unique videos.




Listings in this section are a
sampling of events at the University
of Florida, compiled fom entries
listed in the full calendar that
appears on the Web at calendar. ufl.
edu. To submit an event online, visit
http://calendar. ufl.edu/submit/.


Some 600 tours are expected to be included
when the site officially launches on Sept. 25.
Christos Traikos, UF senior, said that an
independent company like YOUniversity
TV could create an unbiased view of the
college's campus. He added that an online
tour would have made it easier and more
effective for him to choose a college, since
he is from Brazil.
And high school counselors are likely to
value the Web site's usefulness "Espe-
cially for out-of-state students that may not
have an opportunity to visit the far away

Italian mosaic brings art to Nanoscale Research Facility


Take a step into the new Nanoscale
Technology Research Facility's lobby to en-
ter a world where science and art coalesce.
A beautiful mosaic floor is the centerpiece
of attention providing a place where
visitors are welcomed, new ideas receive
inspiration and research blossoms.
If you had walked into the building this
past summer, you would have found artist
Robert Stout hard at work. The American-
born artist, who now lives in Italy, spent six
weeks in July and August piecing together
thousands of intricate Italian tiles to cre-
ate his mosaic masterpiece, "Nanotube
Fullerenes."
Wearing ripped, worn jeans and a
paint-sprinkled shirt while working on the
mosaic that measures 14.5 feet by 15.5
feet, Stout said nanoscientists who saw
him installing the art commented that they
immediately recognized the science images
contained within.
Stout said when he first heard about
the new University of Florida public art
project, he thought it would be exciting to
integrate appropriate science images. He
studied nanoscience on the Internet and in
books, and then sketched three images to
incorporate into the mosaic.
"The science inspired me," he said. "It's


utilitarian they (the
tiles).., create a whole
lot of practicality and
beauty behind the
meaning of the piece."
Stout described the
mixture between art
and architecture "like
jazz." He said there
is a structure to the
melody, but the artist
does not have to follow
each note in order to
create a masterpiece
out of disorder, chance
and randomness.
This was Stout's
second commissioning Artist
at UE Several years ago,
he created mosaics for the terrace between
the Ham Museum of Art and the Florida
Museum of Natural History.
Such projects are made possible through
Florida State Statue 255.043, also known as
the Art in State Buildings Program. More
than 100 pieces of art have been created on
the University of Florida's campus since the
program began io 1979. According to the
law, each state-funded building must set
aside up to .05 percent of the total cost of

the project but not exceeding $100,000 -
to create an original piece of art.
Stout wants people to get excited when
they look at his artwork. He said that while
nanoscientists may recognize specific designs
in the installation, no one needs to be a sci-
entist to appreciate the beauty of the mosaic.

Murphy shines against FSU


* THE GATORS SWEPT THE SEMINOLES
ON MONDAY NIGHT IN TALLAHASSEE.

By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

Some games, All-American high school talent
gives way to freshman inexperience.
This was not one of those games for Kelly
MurR.y.
The freshman setter flaunted her versatil-
ity, posting 10 kills, 25 assists and nine digs in
a 3-0 (25-22, 26-24,26-24) win against FSU (5-2)
Monday night in Tallahassee.
"She was one dig away and I'll be re-
ally mad if there was a dig that wasn't recorded
- from a triple-double," coach Mary.Wise said.
"A triple-double in three sets, you are definitely
doing a yeoman's work."
When No. 8 UF (5-0) took on Long Beach State
just two days ago, Murphy endured the worst
performance of her young career.
She hit .077 on 26 attempts and recorded just
four digs in a five-set match.
After the match, Wise attributed Murphy's
struggles to youth and said any freshman is go-
ing to have rough games throughout the matura-
tion process.
However, her ability to log a devastating and
complete stat line is the reason she has been
thrust into the center of the offensive attack as a
true freshman.
Against the Seminoles, Murphy was able to
put the last match behind her as she confidently
contributed to a win that was a lot closer than
it looks on paper UF only tallied seven more


points than FSU in the match.
The Gators were able to fend off two set points
in the second set before icing a 26-24 win.
In the third set, FSU again had the Gators on
the ropes when it took a 23-22 lead after sopho-
more Callie Rivers was unable to finish off an
attack.
"A lot of teams around the country are going
to see a 3-0 win by Florida and not realize how
hard of a fight it was," Wise said.
The Seminoles were led by junior Brianna
Barry, who had a game-high 13 kills with a .417
hitting percentage.
Wise showed her respect for
the talented middle blocker,
calling her one of the toughest
players to contain in volleyball.
Volleyball UF's middle blockers, se-
nior Kelsey Bowers and junior
Kristina Johnson, both played
after missing practice on Sunday, but were un-
able to keep Barry from having a big game.
Two-time reigning Southeastern Conference
Freshman of the Week Kristy Jaeckel led the
Gators in kills (11) for the second straight game,
and junior libero Elyse Cusack led the team in
digs (12).
Wise voiced her surprise with Cusack's "low"
dig total and questioned the official scoring.
"She might have had 12 halfway through the
second set," she said.
Prior to the game, Wise expressed concerns
with taking her young team into the tough, ri-
valry-driven atmosphere of FSU's Tully Gym.
Her team responded with the 17th consecu-
tive defeat of the Seminoles.
A radio broadcast contributed to this report.

FOOTBALL, from page 22


Jensen shines


in first meet

By EUGENIO TORRENS
Alligator Writer

Cool, calm, poised, unflappable.
Those aren't adjectives you'd expect to hear when
describing a freshman's play in her first college golf
tournament.
Nevertheless, it was freshman Evan Jensen who led
the UF women's golf team in the third round of the
Preview Invitational shooting an even-par 72.
"For my first tournament, I think I played great,"
Jensen said.
Asked if she was surprised about her team-leading
play, "I always set high expectations for myself."
Her final round catapulted her
S into a tie for 17th. However, a 17th-
place finish as the team's best doesn't
lead to a good finish as the Gators
finished 14th out of the 15 teams.
In each of the three rounds, Jensen
only got better, lowering her score
progressively. She went from 3-over-
Briles-Hinton par in the first round, to a 2-over-par
in the second round, to her even 72
to cap things off. For the whole tournament, Jensen shot
5-over to lead the team.
"Again, I am impressed with Evan's performance
during this tournament," coach Jill Briles-Hinton said.
"She was 1-under par for a while and ended up shoot-
ing an even-par 72, which was really solid."
Brittany Nelson also played her best round on
Monday shooting a 5-pver 77. She improved by seven
strokes from the previous round to end up with a 27-
over.
Sophomore Jessica Yadloczky shot her worst round
Monday, a 6-over 78. The round may have come as a
surprise considering she shot a 2-under in Sunday's sec-
ond round. She finished 4 strokes behind Jensen in the
three-day effort at a 9-over 225.
The other freshman in the rotation, Andrea Watts,
mimicked her second round with an 11-over par on
the day. She finished one stroke behind her teammate,
Nelson, to end the tournament at 28-over.
Even with Jensen's efforts, UF finished with a score
of 928, 64 over-par. The team shot a combined 308, 20-
over, on Monday to match its second round.
"This tournament was a really good starting point for
our team," Briles-Hinton said in a press release. "Now, I
will start the beginning stages of coaching with some of
these girls, and we will begin to see improvements."


MIKE, from page 22


I've always been annoyed at the
way coaches downplay their teams'
rankings, but it makes more sense to
me now. When players start believ-
ing their own hype, it can have nega-
tive results, and that puts the coaches
in a bind.
It takes a lot for me to admit the
BCS has something right, but I have
to give credit where it's due. The
BCS doesn't release its standings
until Oct. 12 this year, by which time
all the major teams will have played
some legit competition.
- The Harris Poll won't come out
until Sept. 23, at least allowing for a
few more weeks to gauge how good
teams really are.
That way, we don't end up with
a sub-par Ohio State team in the top
five right away or a West Virginia
squad in the top 10 that can't even
handle my East Carolina Pirates.
There's no doubt the polls are im-
portant, as they factor into the BCS


yard line with 1:56 to play.
Instead of taking a few kneel-downs to end the game,
UF came out firing, with Tebow still in. Tebow threw
an incomplete pass into the end zone on the drive, and
the Gators settled for a 29-yard field goal from kicker
Jonathan Phillips.
The field goal was the first in Phillips' career. He
missed his only attempt in 2007.
Phillips also dismissed the running-up-the-score
theory.
"If you just think about it, I've never kicked a field
goal in a game, we're going to Tennessee,"
Phillips said. "It definitely was something
important that needed to be done befo we
got there, so I'm really glad I got that rep."
Football Even senior offensive lineman Jason
Watkins thought Shannon overreacted.
"The way we're coached down here, you play 60
minutes," Watkins said. "You don't stop until it says 0:00
on the scoreboard. ... We had time on the clock left, it's
fourth down, you're in field goal situation, you kick it."
The 29-yard kick has certainly become an issue for UF,
but Tebow does not expect his offense to hold back in the
future because of this talk.
"We're going to be nice, we're going to shake your
hands, we're going to do our act, be men, but we're not
going to not try to score," Tebow said.
"And I don't think that has anything to do with the
type of person you are."


and can even influence recruiting,
but let's make teams earn those spots
instead of just doling them out based
on nothing because it's a tradition.
As far as earning a ranking goes,
no one has done it better than East
Carolina this season. (Not to toot my
own horn here, but it's rare that I get
a chance to do this.)
The Pirates knocked off No. 17
Virginia Tech and No. 8 West Virginia
to take the 14th-best ranking in this
week's AP Poll, but what made those
wins impressive were the inaccurate
polls that overrated both of their
opponents. In ECU's case, the polls
do what they should reflect the
Pirates' performance, not just take a
stab at where they'll finish. One good
week doesn't warrant a ratings boost
either. It's all about performance
over a period of time.
UF, now No. 4, didn't play like
a top-five team for most of its win
against a Miami team that doesn't
have an offense, but a win over
Tennessee in two weeks would ce-
ment it for me because the Gators


would have a few good wins behind
them. Teams that haven't played any
stiff competition have their rankings
simply because voters think they'll
be good.
They haven't done anything to
earn that spot other than have some
good players, a decent previous sea-
son or a high-profile coach.
The only way to tell where a team
fits into the national landscape is by
watching them play, and since it usu-
ally takes a few weeks for them to
get into tough conference schedules,
that's when the rankings should
come out.
But it helps hype up gaig for
TV, which means more money, so i's
unlikely we'll see it change any time
soon. The only thing that can be done
is to not pay attention to them, real-
ize they're flawed and don't get too
starry-eyed if the system arbitrarily
chooses your team as the next big
thing.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I have
to go vote in the UWIRE college foot-
ball poll.

score up, I don't care," Tebow said. "They're paid to stop
us, and coach Meyer is paid to score. If they don't do that,
oh well. But you don't have to talk about coach Meyer as
a person and getting recruits and doing that stuff. That's
not necessary."
Shannon also complained about calls that went
against his team, but Meyer brushed off all of Shannon's
comments.
"I've heard about field goal this, officials this," Meyer
said. "Why don't we talk about the players who played a
great, hard-nosed football game and start worrying about
Florida?
"I learned a long time ago just coach your team, take
care of yourself, and special teams, offense and defense
occupy all our time. So, I'm good. You've got to move
on."
Tebow continued to defend Meyer's character for
nearly two minutes, making references to players' behav-
ior off the field.
"What did coach Meyer do besides recruit good guys,
try to keep guys out of jail, doing the right thing, trying
to work guys into being better people on the field and off
the-field?" Tebow said. "We play with character strength
on the field and off, and I don't think you usually see
many cheap shots or anything wrong that we do."

Last-minute kick


sparks off-field spat


* RANDY SHANNON DID NOT
LIKE UF'S LATE SCORE.

By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Staff Writer
edrexler@alligator.org

It seemed harmless at the time,
-but UF's field goal with a victory
already in hand against Miami on
Saturday night has started a small
war of words.
First, Miami coach Randy
Shannon suggested the field goal
with 25 seconds left and the Gators
already up 20 points will aid the
Hurricanes in recruiting in the
future.
"Sometimes when you do
things, and people see the type of
person that you really are, you turn
a lot of people off," Shannon told
The Palm Beach Post on Sunday.
"I won't say more than that, but it
helped us. It helped us more than
you will ever know."
Shannon didn't say UF coach
Urban Meyer's name, but Shannon
said recruits called him after the


game telling him they were still
coming to play for Miami because
of the field goal, according to the
Post.
After practice on Monday, UF
quarterback Tim Tebow fired a
volley back at Shannon by vehe-
mently defending his coach.
"The only part that really of-
fended me is
when he ques-
tioned coach
Meyer," Tebow
said. "I'll have
coach Meyer's
back on any-
thing. To say
Tebow something like
that about coach
Meyer isn't true at all. He's one of
the best coaches in the game. That's
why I came to the University of
Florida."
Tebow was passionate and
excited in his defense of Meyer,
nearly upset at Shannon's impli-
cation.
"You can talk about running the

Early polls waste time

preseason polls and early-season rankings are two of
the most dangerous aspects of college football.
They create an enormous amount of buzz and pro-
voke plenty of speculation, which is fun for fans, but they
can be scary to coaches. Polls are wrong so often they put
unrealistic expectations on a team,
leading fans, boosters and so on to
become less and less patient.
Look at Clemson. The Tigers were
i Z pegged as a top-10 team in every
S major poll, but didn't look like they
belonged in the rankings at all during
Mike McCall a 34-10 loss to Alabama. They have
McCall-in' It since dropped out of-the top 25 in the
Like I See It AP poll, and coach Tommy Bowden is
mmccall@alligator.org facing enormous pressure to turn the
season around.
Clemson fans and many others
around the country saw the Tigers as national title con-
tenders. Why? Because the polls said so. When it came time
to line up, it was cear the voters got it wrong.
That can be a cancer in the locker room as well.

UF FOOTBALL

Blitzes slow down speedy backs


By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Staff Writer
khyppolite@alligator.org

It sure didn't take long for ques-
tions about UF's running game to
resurface. Just a week after run-
ning over Hawaii's defense, the
Gators' running backs combined
for just seven yards rushing
Saturday against Miami.
The Hurricanes used blitz
packages and gimmick defenses
that UF couldn't seem to adjust
to until late in the fourth quarter.
Offensive lineman Jason Watkins
said opponents often throw sev-
eral different looks at the Gators'
offense in hopes of matching up
with their speed all over the field,
and the problem was just making
the proper reads.
"It was just mental errors,"
Watkins said. "All the effort and
intensity was there, and if we had
just corrected a few things it would
have been a blowout."


Emmanuel Moody didn't re-
ceive a carry Saturday, and UF
coach Urban Meyer said he wants
to get him more involved in the
offense.

"He played his best game
as a Gator."
Urban Meyer
UF football coach


PLAYER OF THE GAME: The UF
defense was particularly effective
against Miami on Saturday, and
Meyer said defensive lineman
Jermaine Cunningham is the big-
gest reason.
Meyer said Cunningham was
the defensive played of the game
for the Gators after the junior
recorded seven total tackles and
one sack. He was also named
the Southeastern Conference
Defensive Lineman of the Week.
"He played his best game


as a Gator," Meyer said. "He's
grown up .He's carrying himself
much differently than he has in
the past, and we're real proud
of him."

INJURIES: Special teams player
Cody Worton is out for the sea-
son with a torn ACL. Meyer has
praised Worton's play on the kick-
off unit. Worton is the sixth player
on UF's roster that has torn his
ACL this season.
Linebacker Dustin Doe suffered
a groin injury during the Miami
game on Saturday. The injury isn't
expected to be serious, and he is
only expected to miss about four
days.
Wide receiver Carl Moore, has
a hip pointer and is also expected
to miss just a few days.
Offensive lineman Jim Tartt
is probable for next weekend's
game against Tennessee after
missing the first two games with
a shoulder injury.
