It's Goin'


Down


Decked in diamonds, rapper Yung Joc performs on Flavet Field on Sunday night as part of the Crocs Next Step
Campus Tour. MC Lars and Cartel also performed during the concert.


Crocs tour

comes to UF

By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Writer

Atlanta-based rapper Yung
Joc took time during his
Sunday performance at Flavet
Field to apologize.
Joc's songs, which include
"It's Goin' Down," may be too
raunchy for sensitive members
of the mostly student-aged
crowd, he joked.
"I apologize to the parents
of the kids. I apologize to the
kids," he said. "I don't wanna
hear any write-ups about me
tomorrow."
Three musical artists be-
longing to different genres
performed for UF students
Sunday night as part of the
Crocs Next Step Campus Tour.


The tour featured MC Lars,
Yung Joc and Cartel and was
sponsored by Crocs Inc., the
shoe company, and Xbox 360
Live.
The concert was free and
open to the public.
MC Lars, billed as a "Post
Punk Laptop rapper," opened
Sunday night's show with
humorous songs such as "Hot
Topic is Not Punk Rock" and
"Hipster Girl."
Before playing "Download
This Song," MC Lars gave
some advice to UF students
who would like to illegally
download the song without
getting caught by UF.
"Set your uploads to zero,"
he said.
After MC Lars' perfor-
mance,. six .girls were picked
from the crowd and called to
the stage to compete by danc-
ing for backstage passes to

LOCAL NEWS

Rumors cause gas spike


SG hopefuls interviewed


By ASHLEY HEMMY
Alligator Writer
Rumors about increasing gas prices fu-
eled a weekend surge in gas demand that
spread along the Gulf Coast and north
toward South Carolina.
Car owners swamped gas stations to fill
up their cars after hearing about the poten-
tial damage that Hurricane Ike could cause
to gas reserves in Texas.
The rumors may have started at an
ExxonMobil in Gainesville, where a work-
er posted a note Wednesday saying people
should purchase gas before prices reached
$5 a gallon by the weekend, said Randy
Bly, the director of community relations for
AAA Auto Club South.
"The people are creating the problem,"
Bly said. "The gas reserves will empty be-


cause the people are panicking."
Bly said hurricane damage to Texas
reserves is not a massive threat because
there are backup reserves in Louisiana. Gas
prices will rise during hurricane season but
probably won't reach $5 a gallon, Bly said.
"The gas reserves will empty
because the people are panick-
ing."
Randy Bly
director of community relations for
AAA Auto Club South

In Gainesville, average prices Sunday
were at $3.91 a gallon for regular unleaded
gas, up from $3.84 Saturday.

About 75 students showed up for the
first day of interviews to run for a Student
Senate seat with a party in next month's
Student Government election.
From Friday's applicant pool, 30 stu-
dents registered with the Orange and Blue
Party, and 40 registered with the Gator
Party, said SG Supervisor of Elections Dan
Siegel.
Orange and Blue Party President Sam
Miorelli said his party wasn't expecting the
turnout it received on the first day.
Gator Party President Luis Nobriga
said more applicants are expected in the
days ahead. Sen. Lawrence Raab, who
interviewed five hopefuls for the Gator
Party, said the numbers were fantastic for
the first day.


Five students interviewed but did not
decide on a party Friday. Some students
knew which party they wanted to join
right away. Addison Vawters, a UF sopho-
more, said he chose Orange and Blue part-
ly because of its stance against single-party
control of Senate.
Student Cynthia Kan, an
Government engineering materials
graduate student, ap-
plied to represent family housing and se-
lected Gator after interviewing with both
parties because she felt they worked well
with the UF administration.
Qualifying continues today and
Tuesday.

Students rush to make films in 24-hour competition

Winning film adapts 'The Crocodile Hunter' to college-themed comedy


BY TATIANA GONZALEZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

Eighteen hours of work, six
hours of sleep and an Australian
accent that's what it took for
three UF students to win the
third annual 24-Hour Film Rush
competition Saturday.
The contest was hosted by
Upstart Films, a student organi-
zation dedicated to filmmaking.
About 50 audience members
and filmmakers watched and
voted for their favorite film, ac-
tress and actor at the Reitz Union
Cinema during the screening
Saturday evening.
Team Waffle won with its film,
"Man Beast" an adaptation
of Steve Irwin's "The Crocodile
Hunter" in which Al Gator


tracks a college male seeking a
female companion.
Five teams had 24 hours to
write, shoot and edit a movie.
The movie could be no lon-
ger than seven minutes and had
to use three-out-of-five given
requirements, also known as pa-
rameters.
These parameters included
ice cream, matches, deodorant,
a character who was soaking wet
and the line "You're kind of an
idiot."
Lance Griffin won Best Actor
for his portrayal of Al Gator in
"Man Beast."
"I was just out having fun,"
said Griffin, a UF theater junior
and team captain.
"It was from the heart, not the
head."


Best Actress went to Laura
Rose of Team Mayhem for her
role in "Did It Hurt?"
"I was just out having fun.
It was from the heart, not
the head."
Lance Griffin
UF theater junior

Rose played the counterpart of
an overly confident college male
who tries to get lucky using tacky
pick-up lines.
The Best Film winner was
presented a Blockbuster popcorn
bucket filled with candy and a
$10 Blockbuster gift card.
A ceramic dog with Film Rush
2008 written in bold, black letters
was also presented to the win-
ners.


Best Actor and Actress each
won their own stuffed dinosaur
toy and choice of candy.
Members of Team Waffle
agreed that it was a lot of fun just
working on the film.
"Winning is just a cherry on
top," said Alexandra Mirchev, a
UF computer engineering junior,
who played the female lead in
"Man Beast."
Ryan Stevens, a UF electrical
engineering junior, played the
supporting male role, while Joe
Bibbs, a UF sophomore, was in
charge of the camera work.
Stevens said there were no
conflicts and that the team stayed
levelheaded during the film-
making process until the very
end, when they had some DVD
failure.


"We got through it, though,"
Stevens said with a laugh.
Upstart Films meets Thursdays
at 7:15 p.m. in Turlington Room
2336.

Concert praises peace


By EMILY BLAKE
Alligator Contributing Writer

Hundreds gathered Saturday at the
first Concert for Peace in Gainesville to
hear local bands perform songs, such as
John Lennon's "Imagine," in hopes that
someday the world will really "live as
one."
The concert, at the recently renamed
Bo Diddley Community Plaza, was or-
ganized by local peace-advocacy groups
in celebration of the International Day
of Peace on Sept. 21.
The day was started by the United
Nations in 1982 as an annual 24-hour
global cease-fire and day of nonvio-
lence, according to the International
Day of Peace Web site.
Gainesville officially joined the cel-
ebration when Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan
signed a proclamation this year recog-
nizing the International Day of Peace,
said Bruce Mcintosh, a Marion County
resident and one of the event's organiz-
ers.
City Commissioner Thomas
Hawkins, who attended the concert in
Hanrahan's place, said the decision was


not a necessary action, but a display of
Gainesville's support.
"(Peace) is a value that is shared by
residents," Hawkins said. "It's impor-
tant that our local government reflects
that."
Local peace groups set up booths
surrounding the
plaza, providing visi-
tors with information
and resources to get
involved. Visitors
watched videos from
the organizations and
listened to local bands
S Marce, Antidote, Nino
Hawkins Castaneda, Other
Voices and Lost Safari Drummers.
Money collected through various raf-
fles and sales benefited the U.N. World
Food Programme, which delivers water,
food and medicine to people in Third
World countries.
McIntosh said a day of nonviolence
allows the program and other philan-
thropic organizations to deliver these
goods more safely.
"Peace is more than one day," he said.
"But we can start with that one day."


Gator Plunge draws 700


By GUYANA HAND
Alligator Contributing Writer

Nicole Jackson spent.
part of her Saturday
dancing to "YMCA" with
a resident of Tacachale,
a Gainesville residential
community for the devel-
opmentally disabled.
Jackson, a First-Year
Florida peer leader, and
more than 700 other
volunteers took part in
Gator Plunge, an annual
community service event
that sends UF students,
faculty and staff on about
40 service projects.
About twice as many
students participated in
this year's event, planned
by Actions!, than in pre-
vious years, said Andrew
Perrone, assistant direc-


tor of the Center for
Leadership and Service.
Registration was
closed a week early be-
cause the organization
had reached its capac-
ity for volunteers, said
the director of Actions!,
Olvin Carias.
The event
Student was funded
Life in part by a
$500 mini-
grant from Weeks of
Welcome, Carias said.
The money was used
to rent vans, chairs and
tables for the event, she
said.
Groups of volunteers
gathered at the Plaza of
the Americas at 8 a.m. to
eat breakfast and regis-
ter for service. Actions!
provided 320 muffins, 60


packs of bagels, 41 cases
of bottled water and more
to feed the volunteers,
said Steven Vutsinas, the
organization's adviser.
Students enrolled in
First-Year Florida par-
ticipated in the event to
fulfill the community
service requirement for
the course.
UF freshman Danielle
Burgess and her First-
Year Florida class weed-
ed and mulched a gar-
den at Joseph Williams
Elementary School.
"It's too early, but I'm
excited because I get to
help elementary school
kids," Burgess said. "If
your school is nice, you're
going to be a little hap-
pier than if your school
looks funky."

Rumor has it

Gas scare apparently

Gainesville's fault
Calm down, kiddies, your gas tanks and wallets are
going to be fine.
Thanks to Hurricane Ike and a Gainesville incar-
nation of Chicken Little, people frantically jammed into
gas stations to fill up their tanks at the end of last week.
Supposedly, the trouble all started with a posting at a
gas station in Gainesville.
Some evil gas station in South Carolina actually jacked
their prices up to more than $5 a gallon to take advantage
of the pump frenzy. The rumor threatened a weekend
spike in gas prices that scared the collective pants off resi-
dents in just about every state on the east coast.
Thanks for that, guys. We didn't think that $4 a gallon
was enough, so we're glad you decided to charge us an-
other buck. We didn't want that extra $15 anyway.
Our question is: How did this situation blow up so
quickly?
Who saw the sign at a random Gainesville gas station
and decided it was reliable enough to tell their relatives all
the way up North that the sky was falling?
It must have been a really impressive sign.
You've got to love technology. Thanks to our great ad-
vancements in poster boards, markers and the Internet, the
whole eastern seaboard had a great big gas-induced heart
attack. There will probably be a shortage now that a few
million people started hoarding gas over the weekend.
Lucky for uswe aren't so easily convinced. We smelled
the farce from a mile away.
Although, just in case this ever happens again, we did
go out and pick up a sweet 10-speed with a really comfort-
able seat because it's a long ride down to South Florida.


Party Shopping


S student Government
elections are creeping
up again, and the par-
ties are warming up.
That's right, we said par-
ties. As in more than one.
Students began interview-
ing for the chance to have a
shot at tacking their names
to -either the Gator Party or
Orange and Blue Party on
Friday. Maybe.
If the past is any kind of in-
dicator, everyone can assume
how this election is going to
pan out, but we're still going
to be watching. Apparently,
there was an unusually high
turnout for the first day of SG
"party shopping," so maybe
something's afoot.
Maybe this semester the
Gator Party's opponent will
present a legitimate chal-
lenge.
Maybe they will have a
full roster of nominees who


are involved enough in the
community to formulate a
solid platform and steal more
than a. handful of Senate
seats.
As usual, the Orange and
Blue Party sounds optimistic,
but perhaps their instincts
have been sharpened by
a string of electoral beat
downs.
They say they have 10
times more applicants than
the Progress Party had last
year, each of whom is sup-
posedly qualified and dedi-
cated.
In the immortal words of
Lloyd Christmas, "So you're
saying there's a chance?"
Maybe this will be the
semester that the almighty
Gator Party finally gets de-
throned.
Okay, we doubt that, too,
but it's always fun to root for
the underdog.

Guest column

Sarah Palin's resume lacks substance


s the airwaves became abuzz with the announce-
ment that Sen. McCain had picked Alaska Gov.
Sarah Palin as his running mate to complete the
maverick ticket, it quickly became apparent that the me-
dia were in love with Palin's personal story.
The same can be said of Sen. Barack Obama's media
relationship, but it hasn't come at the expense of issue
coverage as it has for Palin.
With just a little bit of digging into her razor-thin port-
folio of political experience, a gold mine of contradictions
reveals itself.
Palin is frequently referred to as a fiscal conservative
on television.
I'm pretty sure that being fiscally conservative gen-
erally doesn't entail running a state that ranks number
one in both taxes per resident and spending per resi-
dent.
If you feel comfortable tagging Obama as fiscally
responsible, and you would probably be the only one,
then maybe you could give Palin the same label.
SThe hockey mom has also managed to swindle more
federal money out of Washington coffers than any other
governor in the past two years.
Ever heard of the "bridge to nowhere"? Palin was
a staunch supporter of constructing the $320 million
bridge to an island of 50 residents, until it became a
political hot potato.
So much for fighting earmarks, a McCain campaign
favorite.
Well then, it sounds like she fits neatly into McCain's
maverick image. Again, a cursory glance at her record
shows this not to be the case.
Palin is radically conservative, not the poster child
of post-partisanship the media has painted her to, be.


She supports teaching creation-
ism alongside evolution in public
schools not even supporting
the "intelligent design" middle
ground and opposes abortion
in every instance.
Kyle Robisch Is this the woman we want
letters@alligator.org stepping into the Oval Office,
in the event that 72-year-old
McCain becomes unable to fulfill
his duties as commander in chief?
McCain has continually emphasized experience as
the most important metric by which we should judge
candidates, so one could assume that Palin has a wealth
of it.
As it turns out, she doesn't.
She was mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, a town of about
9,000.
Her executive experience is weak she has been
governor of her state for less than two years and accom-
plished nothing except swelling the tax rate and deficit
of the state.
According to the McCain campaign, her experience
as commander in chief of the Alaskan National Guard
and along Alaska's Russian border gives her a wealth of
foreign policy experience.
They say this despite the fact that she didn't deploy
the National Guard en masse once and that states are
not constitutionally allowed to make foreign policy
decisions.
It's time to get real about Palin's experience, message
and economic literacy.
Kyle Robisch is a political science and economics sopho-
more.

Letter to the Editor
Government should solve gas situation
Hi Friends, I just filled up Old Red. It
cost me $67.50. Now, let me preface these
remarks by telling you that I am angry. I
am also rich, but I am still angry. The Lord
has blessed me abundantly, but I am still
angry.
I do not know how my brothers and
sisters on fixed incomes or those making
minimum wage, which the Republicans
did not want to raise, are making it.


When I saw that total, I thought, "Boy, I
wish I could make Junior, Cheney and their
partners, Exxon, Chevron and the Arabs get
up on top of Old Red and toss a match in
that gas tank."
Do something for goodness sake! You
can't tell me you don't have the power or
that it's market forces or speculators. I did
not just fall off the turnip truck. I know who
you are, and you don't care.
If I had your power, I would seize the oil


companies' windfall profit and give it back
to the people it was stolen from.
Oil companies have abundant reserves
right here in the U.S. that they aren't drill-
ing. They have not updated their refineries
and their capacities in 20 years.
The oil companies are obviously do-
ing this purposefully. Still, Pappy McCain
stands and says to give them more of our
reserves and more tax breaks.
We have rovers by the name of Spirit


and Opportunity (Google it, friends, it's
true) that have been traveling around Mars
for about five years performing complex
scientific research without a drop of fuel.
You expect me to believe that I can't have
an electric scooter that will run 40 mph or
an electric car that will run 70 mph and stay
charged all day? Listen, you hypocrites,
I've had enough.

Letter to the Editor

Republican Party doesn't represent middle-class voters


Can't find anyone with a reason-
able explanation as to why a
middle-class voter should vote
Republican.
I have a classmate who says he
will vote Republican because he
disagrees with the idea of universal
health care. Yet in the same class,
we have a friend who broke his
arm over the summer and has not
received medical care because he
doesn't have insurance.
People who think the middle
class shouldn't have to pay for
someone else's health care may be


right, but they should stop kidding
themselves because we already pay
via inflated health insurance costs.
The current Republican-sup-
ported system distributes this cost
evenly to everyone who doesn't
qualify for Medicaid or Medicare,
regardless of whether they can af-
ford it. This system is broken, and
my buddy's arm is, too.
Sadly, this is just one of the falla-
cies leading members of the middle
class to vote for people who don't
care about them.
My brother also votes Republican

Andrew Coffey because he
Speaking Out thinks the
fiscally con-
servative tax
policy keeps his taxes low. The fact
is Obama's tax plan calls for lower
taxes for everyone who makes less
than $250,000, which is more than
what McCain's plan offers.
I have other friends who believe
more oil drilling would reduce gas
prices and our reliance on foreign oil,
a position McCain has championed.
However, Jimmy Carter predicted
during his presidency that our ever-


increasing demand for oil would
eventually make us so dependent
on foreign supplies that it would
lead to war. His advice was to seek
alternative energy sources, and that
was back in the 1970s. He was right.
Why should we drill for more of
our own oil now? Would it reduce
prices or just continue to satisfy our
unsustainable demand? Or would
increased drilling only serve to
diminish our domestic supply,
perpetuating our dependence on
foreign oil?

LOCAL NEWS

Women for Obama tour seeks to win female votes


By ANDREA ASUAJE
Alligator Writer
aasuaje@alligator.org

As children bounced on laps and
women held signs, a chant of "Yes
we can" echoed from the main stage
of the Hippodrome State Theatre.
Almost 400 people attended the
Gainesville stop of the "Change
We Need" Women for Obama tour
Sunday afternoon.
The tour featured U.S. Rep.


Carolyn Maloney, a democrat from
New York, and "Days of Our Lives"
star Deidre Hall as speakers and
motivators for presidential nominee
Barack Obama.
Maloney said the tour is spread-
ing the message of women's and
family rights through Obama's
platform, which she called the
strongest Democratic platform she's
ever seen.
"Electing Barack Obama is elect-
ing women," she said in an inter-
view before the speeches.


Maloney said she thought Sen.
Obama would help increase equal-
ity between
the sexes, espe-
cially in regard to
wages and paid
S leave.
"Wake up,"
she said. "It's the
21st century."
Obama Hall, who has
been involved
with Democratic campaigning
since the 2000 election, said change


is necessary for the future and that
she feels Obama is a candidate who
cares.
"I would follow'him every-
where," she said.
During her part of the speech,
Hall asked everyone in the audience
to stand up and then asked every-
one who was a campaign volunteer
to sit back down.
She then asked those left stand-
ing to vow to do everything pos-
sible to make Obama a success in
the November election.


"I want us to take Florida," she
said.
Bettye Jennings, who attended
the rally, agreed.
Jennings, the mother of former
state representative Ed Jennings
Jr., said she thought Obama
would represent Americans more
than Republican candidate John
McCain.
"Barack Obama has shown
that he is for the people," she said.
"Think about the last eight years.
Obama is the choice that we need."


SFC president's speech addresses state budget cuts


BY DAVID CUMMING
Alligator Contributing Writer

Despite recent slashes in Florida's edu-
cation budget, Santa Fe College President
Jackson Sasser maintained Friday that the
college will keep a steady course for the
new school year..
"While our name has changed, our ded-
ication to students has stayed the same,"
Sasser said during his State of the College
address, which was met with roars of ap-
plause from about 400 faculty and staff.


Sasser also discussed statewide budget
cuts and their effect on SFC.
SFC has cut 50 faculty and staff posi-
tions in the last year, and it can't create new
positions because of the fiscal year's 7 to 8
percent cut in state funds. The percentage
may even jump to 10 percent after the elec-
tion, he added.
"It's deadly serious to not invest in
education," he said. "It's the worst deci-
sion that Florida has made."
Sasser has planned for education cut-
backs for the past two arid a half years,


"It's deadly serious to not invest
in education. It's the worst deci-
sion that Florida has made."
Jackson Sasser
Santa Fe College President

but he didn't realize the turnaround would
come so quickly.
Regardless of SFC's transition from
community college to simply "college," the
goals remain the same, Sasser said.


"Nothing has changed in the sense that
we still and will always have an open door
policy," he said in an interview after the
conference.
"Students go through rigorous classes
here like any other college. They do better
after their time here and are well prepared
for a university, such as UF, if they decide
to transfer."
SFC will offer two new Bachelor of
Science degrees in clinical laboratory sci-
ence and health services management in
fall 2009.

Underwear Dash attracts newcomers, last-timers


BY FAITH REAVES
Alligator Contributing Writer

As midnight approached on Friday,
hundreds of students on Turlington Plaza
stripped down to their skivvies, dancing and
chanting Gator cheers in the process.
Participants in the eighth Great Underwear
Dash took off in droves after a countdown to
midnight.
All of the clothes left on Turlington were
donated to The Salvation Army.
Lauren Pyne, a UF biological engineering
junior, went to the event for the first time on
Friday. Pyne said she had more trouble choos-
ing her underwear than her actual outfit.
Clad in a sports bra and matching under-
wear, Pyne proudly displayed the whales on
the front of her panties.
"I'm excited," she said. "I'm ready to run.
I'm ready to go."
Chris Nelson, a psychology and sociology
senior, donned a blond wig and a friend's tie-
dye underwear for the event.
Nelson had never attended the event be-
fore, but he said with the right underwear, he
couldn't miss his last chance to participate.
"You gotta rep it," he said.
Jorge G6mez, a UF electrical engineer-
ing and business administration senior who
organized the event, said he's participated in
every dash except the first one.
He and two friends have made it their tra-
dition to dress for a different theme each year,
including Playboy bunnies aid beach bums.
This year, they sported red, pigtailed wigs
and briefs.
With each event growing in numbers,
G6mez said he hopes other schools will pick
up on the trend.
"It's exhilarating, and it's not aggressive at
all. When people do it, they realize how fun
it is," he said.
The addition of the clothes donation has
been one of the biggest changes to the Great
Underwear Dash.
G6mez said Beau Bergeron, who started
the Great Underwear Dash, decided the
dasher's abandoned clothes should be do-


nated to local charities at the sixth event.
Bergeron graduated last spring.
Pyne said her roommates were already
planning on giving away the clothes that she
wore, but this was "a fun way to donate."
While University Police Department of-
ficers stood by for the event, Lt. Scott Richard
said no reports were filed.


Friday night's dash ended in a new cel-
ebration, with some of the dashers taking a
splash in the fountain in front of the Fine Arts
Building.
"Yeah, the fountain afterwards was pretty
amazing," said Mike Heckmann, a UF sopho-
more.
"Definitely gonna have to keep that tradi-


tion."
Chelsea Hick, a UF English junior, said
that the event is really a "sign of the times."
"It seems kind of weird to think that we're
standing around in Turlington, and it's not
weird or taboo," she said.
"Fifty years ago, you couldn't run around
in your underwear."

Area residents to live on minimum wage for two days


About 50 people will cut back their budgets this week to
show solidarity with those who work for minimum wage.
Participants in the Alachua County Poverty Challenge
will keep close tabs on their daily spending today before try-
ing to make it-on $33.99 Tuesday and Wednesday.
After subtracting for housing and clothes, that comes to
$9.78 a day.
"Hopefully it will bring to light some of the difficult
choices people have to make, to choose whether they want
housing or food," said Jon DeCarmine, the event's organizer


"Hopefully it will bring to light some of the dif-
ficult choices people have to make, to choose
whether they want housing or food."
Jon DeCarmine
Alachua County Poverty Challenge organizer

and executive director of the City of Gainesville/Alachua
County Office on Homelessness.


Even ordinary activities have a cost, DeCarmine said.
Participants should subtract $6.82 for driving a car, $1.61 for
talking on a cell phone, $1.05 for using the Internet and $1.60
for having health insurance.
"Realistically, the hardest part is going to be not smok-
ing," DeCarmine said of himself.
The challenge leads up to Gainesville and Alachua
County's joint Hunger Summit Thursday, where officials
will discuss local problems with poverty.

Yung Joc covers classic songs

meet Cartel, the dosing act.
"In order to win the best seat in the
house, you gotta have the best seat in the
house," the announcer said before the girls
took turns wriggling in front of a cheering
crowd.
Cartel, the Atlanta-based pop-rock quin-
tet, began performing around 9 p.m.
The crowd of about 500 was mildly recep-
tive to MC Lars but grew larger and rowdier
as Yung Joc, the second act, began perform-
ing. About 1,500 people had showed up by
the end of Yung Joc's performance.


Among other songs he sampled, Yung
Joc performed his own version of "I Love
Rock 'N' Roll," famously covered by Joan
Jett and the Blackhearts, and "Get Low," by
Lil' Jon & The Eastside Boyz.
Ciera Keenan, a UF
Campus sophomore, said she thought
the Atlanta-based rapper's
performance was awesome,
but she said she was disappointed with the
turnout considering Yung Joc's popularity.
Patrick Wanninkhof, a UF freshman, was
more critical.
"He had like one popular song,"
Wanninkhof said. "That's the only one he
sang all the way through."


Officials to investigate gas worker


GAS, from page 1


Some prices skewed higher. One
independently owned station in north-
west Gainesville raised its price to $5.05
on Friday, said Jim Smith, president and
CEO of the Florida Petroleum Marketers
and Convenience Store Association Inc.
Both Bly and Smith said stations
would be punished for inflating prices.
At the rumor's peak Thursday night,


demand was high enough that at least
one local station was forced to limit pur-
chases to 10 gallons a person.
"I got gas at 11 at night," UF fresh-
man Brianna Pancione said. "I was told
that gas would raise over a $1.50 by the
weekend and that it was a bad idea to
drive home."
The worker who posted the initial
note will face the state attorney, Bly said.
"A lot of people are not happy with
this person," Bly said. "It is irresponsible
to incite such a panic."

possession and not getting good
scoring opportunities for itself.
But, led by two freshmen, the
Gators stormed out after halftime,
recording two goals in the first 10
minutes.
Freshman midfielder Sarah
Chapman put UF on the board off a
comer kick by Abdullah, picking up
the first goal of her college career.
Abdullah sent the ball into the
front of the box on a low left-footed
line drive, and Chapman's shot
grazed the bottom of the crossbar,
bouncing straight up and down into
the goal.
"When I saw that ball, I put my
head down and just smacked it,"
Chapman said.
Just a little more than six minutes
later, freshman midfielder Tahnai
Annis continued her fast-paced
start to the season by adding an-
other goal, the fourth in the first six
games of her college career.


"It's always still a surprise (when
I score)," Annis said.
Since its only loss to Central
Florida, UF has outscored its op-
ponents 9-1.
Despite what Burleigh called a
"mediocre" performance, the Gators
did not allow a goal for the second
game in a row, this time with sopho-
more Meghan Berlingo in the box.
Illinois did not have any second-
half shots until
about 12 minutes
remaining, but
Burleigh was dis-
appointed in the
number of chances
i *- they got after that
Burleigh point.
"We knew that
it would be a real missed oppor-
tunity if that game ended up 0-0
or worse, despite the way we were
playing," Burleigh said. "We know
we're going to be facing an even
tougher team on Friday (at No. 6)
Portland, and we've got to play a lot
better than we did tonight in order
to beat them."

anything. That's a scary feeling for any
golfer.
"That first round pretty much took
me out of the tournament."
The second round of the tourna-
ment was a completely different story.
Horschel, who put his first-round per-
formance out of his mind, shot his best
round of the tournament with a 4-un-
der-par 68. Horschel carded two eagles,


four birdies, two bogeys and a double
bogey in his best round. His third round
saw him shoot a 3-under-par 69. The
back nine saw him eagle the 12th hole, a
par-5 498-yard monster.
Horschel finished with a three-day
score of 214, 2 under par, which landed
him in fourth place. He was one shot shy
of a tie for second place.
Ragland bettered his first round
score and shot an even-par 72. He was
consistent and shot a 1-over-par 73 in
the third round for a combined score


of 2-over 218. His score was the second-
best on the team and carried him to a tie
for 20th place.
Alexander lowered his score after
the first round by five strokes f* an
even-par 72 on Saturday. He then did
one better in the third round, shooting a
2-under-par 70.
"The team's always going to have
a bad day," Horschel said. "Hopefully
this is our bad day for our team, and
hopefully we won't be having one for
the next several tournaments." -.g

scorer. And if the Gators go as Jaeckel goes, then it should
come as no surprise that they suffered their worst loss in
two years. In addition to failing to lead the team in scor-
ing for the first time all season, she posted an awful -.105
hitting percentage on a team-high 19 attempts.
As a team, the Gators finished with a season-low .121
hitting percentage, a sharp contrast from the impressive
.352 percentage recorded by the Rams.
While the majority of UF's main contributors strug-


gled all night long, freshman Kelly Murphy provided one
of the few bright spots. She tallied eight kills on a .545
hitting percentage and dished out 18 assists.
After dropping an extremely close first set, the Gators
showed no signs of life and were unable to spark a come-
back like the one they staged against Long Beach State.
As Georgia comes to town to start conference play on
Friday, Wise is optimistic her team-can learn from this
match and use it as a reference in the future.
"We will be a better team because of having to play
this schedule," Wise said.
A radio broadcast contributed to this report.

UF suffers first loss of season at Colorado State

By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer
S- kkmaistri@alligator.org

Saturday's game against No. 21 Colorado State
wrapped up a road trip reminiscent of the one UF
took to Honolulu in 2006.
The Gators started the trip with a win against
Colorado on Thursday, defeating the Buffaloes for
the first time since meeting in Hawaii two years
ago.
Unfortunately for UF, the Rams brought back
some bad memories, defeating the Gators in straight
sets for the first time since they fell
to UCLA on that same trip to the
Pacific.
Colorado State (8-1) over-
whelmed UF (6-1) in every facet of
the 3-0 (26-24, 25-16, 25-14) match,
handing many of the young Gators
not only their first loss of the sea-
Wise son, but also their first loss as col-
lege athletes.
"Our goal is to be able to play a team of Colorado
State's talent and beat a team like that come
December," UF coach Mary Wise said.
She called CSU a "great team" with experienced
players, but the Rams were led by a talented fresh-
man on Saturday night. Outside hitter Katelyn
Steffan led the team with 11 kills on a .500 hitting
percentage and chipped in four blocks when she
wasn't attacking.
Throughout the early part of the season, fresh-
man Kristy Jaeckel has emerged as UF's go-to point Andrew Stanfill / Alligator Staff

What happens in the first round
stays in the first round.
The UF men's golf team rallied from
a sluggish start at the Carpet Capital
Collegiate in Dalton, Ga. after falter-
ing to a 17th-place finish after the first
round on Friday.
The Gators, seemingly a new team,
rebounded with strong showings the
next two rounds Saturday and Sunday
and leapt to a 5th-overall finish with a
9-over-par 873.
"We seem to be a good bounce-back
team in the sense that if we play a bad
round one day, we come back and play
a really good round the next day," se-

nior Billy Horschel said.
The whole team struggled to shoot
low in the first round. The best Gator
on Friday was senior Toby Ragland,
who shot a 1-over-par 73. Horschel, ju-
nior Tyson Alexander
and sophomore
Andres Echavarria all
shot 5-over-par 77s.
Golf Horschel didn't
help himself by bogey-
ing five of the front
nine holes, including the last four.
"(It's) probably the worst I've hit
the ball in a long, long time," he said. "I
didn't know where the ball was going.

UF SOCCER

Gators score late in victory


By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Alligator Writer
cyazbec@alligator.org

One sign of a good' team is winning
even when you aren't playing your best.
The UF soccer team showcased that abil-
ity as it defeated No. 18 Illinois 2-0 on Friday
night despite not being in sync offensively.
The win was the Gators' second straight
against a top-20 team.
"I really didn't think we played very
well tonight," UF coach Becky Burleigh
said. "So to be able to not play very well
and win against a ranked opponent is a
good thing."
With three of its next four matches
against ranked teams, the No. 17 Gators
(4-1-1) will gladly accept the win, but they
know much needs to improve before their
next match.
Senior midfielder Ameera Abdullah,


"I really didn't think we played very
well tonight. So to be able to not
play very well and win against a
ranked opponent is a good thing."
Becky Burleigh
UF soccer coach

who recorded an assist in the victory, said
UF should have taken control of posses-
sion more to prevent Illinois (4-2) from
having extra chances.
"Not a lot of teams, I think, can (win)
sometimes, especially when they're not
playing their best game," Abdullah said.
"But it's pretty surprising, considering we
are a young team."
UF went through a defensive struggle in
the first half, allowing the Illini to control
