First black UF student returns to campus

afternoon while leading a march to Tigert Hall to mark the 50th anniversary of his arrival at UF.


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Writer

Fifty years to the day after
becoming the first black stu-
dent to enroll at UF, George
Starke Jr. returned to campus
for a more welcoming recep-
tion than he was given the first
time around.
Starke addressed a crowd
of about 125 people on the
steps of Tigert Hall on Monday
about the year he spent as UF's
first black student.
The event was part of
the Black Student Union's
BLACKLIGHT: Spotlight on
an Untold History, a weeklong
celebration of Starke's accep-
tance to UF and 50 years of in-
tegration history, said Naadira
Renfroe, who is directing the
week's events.
Those who participated
marched in the sweltering
heat from the Reitz Union to
the steps of Tigert Hall to hear
Starke and others speak.
With many people stand-
ing off to the side in a patch
of shade, City Commissioner


Jeanna Mastrodicasa pre-
sented Starke with a procla-
mation from Mayor Pegeen
Hanrahan that made Monday
a Gainesville holiday com-
memorating 50 years of UF
integration.
"Without George Starke,
what he did 50 years
ago, I probably wouldn't
be able to be here
today."
Paul Drayton
Student Body Treasurer

Starke said in his speech
that after his first few months
on campus, he was plan-
ning on heading home for
Thanksgiving break when he
was informed of a possible
plot to kill him.
"There were some alleged
hunters out there who were
looking for deer, and they told
me that, as a result of Klan
being in Ocala, that they had

Spoken-word artist


kicks off ceremony


* CEREMONY OPENED
HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH.

By KASEY ROBERTS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Applause, catcalls and cheers of
"you're beautiful!" and "precioso!"
resounded as Mayda del Valle took
the stage Monday, but the noise was
almost instantly silenced as the spo-
ken-word artist began her first poem.
Del Valle opened her perfor-
mance at the opening ceremony of
Hispanic Heritage Month with a
fast-paced, passionate poem called
"Descendancy," which like many
of her poems addressed the frustra-
tions she felt toward stereotypes about


her heritage.
Her show was the featured act at
the ceremony, which brought about
150 people to the Reitz Union Rion
Ballroom.
The ceremony,
which was co-
sponsored by UF's
Diversity Affairs,
began with a video
presentation about
famous historical
Telles-irvin Hispanic figures,
which included Salvador Dali and
Cesar Chavez.
Maryam Laguna, executive director
of Hispanic Heritage Month, spoke of

Long pushes local projects


By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Staff Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org

Alachua County Commission Chairman
Rodney Long urged the city. Monday to
come to a quick decision about two pro-
posed revitalization projects.
Property deals for both projects would
be facilitated by Long, acting for his private
company, Rodney Long Realty Services.
The first project, which would develop
2.5 acres at the corner of East University
Avenue and Hawthorne Road, could cost
up to $1.8 million, Long said.
That price tag would include the pur-
chase of 25 private properties, seven of
which are owned by Christopher Chestnut,
a local attorney and son of Florida Rep.


Chuck Chestnut and County Commissioner
Cynthia Chestnut.
Commissioner Scherwin Henry, who
represents East Gainesville, said the pro-
posal would be good for the area.
"This could be a new downtown for the
East Gainesville community,"
Locl Henry said.
ewc to Long also asked the city
News to consider the $300,000
purchase of Mom's Kitchen,
a diner that has stood on Northwest Fifth
Avenue since 1947. He suggested turning
the building into a museum or neighbor-
hood library.
Although commissioners expressed
some doubts about funding, both projects
were referred to area advisory boards for
further discussion.

UF calendar to help faculty plan around holidays


* PROFESSORS CAN PLAN
FOR RELIGIOUS HOLIDAYS.

BY LAUREN GOLD
Alligator Contributing Writer

Religion is a tricky business
at UF.
After several conflicts in the
past, Tamara Cohen, director
of Multicultural and Diversity


Affairs, produced a calendar
for the 2008-2009 academic year
highlighting important holidays
for all faiths.
The calendar, which can be
found on UF's Web site, was
made specifically to help profes-
sors make their schedules with
religious diversity in mind.
"We're here to help students,
but part of helping students is
helping faculty and staff," Cohen


said.
The calendar also serves as a
reference tool for professors when
students attempt to
Student work out discrepan-
Life cies ahead of time.
"Instructors are
supposed to work with students,
but every year we always run into
conflicts," Cohen said.
A UF commencement ceremo-
ny was once scheduled during


the Jewish holiday of Passover,
which caused a problem for sev-
eral students and their parents,
she said.
Many students who practice
other faiths besides Christianity
must choose between worship
and education when there are
calendar conflicts.
"There are going to be times,
when you have to make sacri-
fices," Cohen said.


Mandy Kageff, a UF public
relations senior, has had to work
with professors for the Jewish
holidays that cause problems
with her class schedule every
year.
"I understand that everybody
cannot accommodate everybody,"
Kageff said. "But it would be nice
if professors worked to riot have
exams on minority religions'
holidays."

Locals head to stores in search of Sarah Palin's frames


By LAUREN IRIZARRY
Alligator Contributing Writer

Lipstick isn't the only thing that sepa-
rates Sarah Palin, Republican vice-presi-
dential nominee, from a bulldog it's also
her glasses.
Across the country, Palin's $375 design-
er frames are flying off store shelves.
Locally, it's hard to find the 704 No. 34
gray frames by Japanese designer Kazuo
Kawasaki.
Wayne Keller, senior vice president
of operations at Lange Eye Care and
Associates, said they're nearly impossible
to keep on the shelves.


"We order 50 pairs a week to split be-
tween our six locations," Keller said.
He said each office averages about 10
to 12 requests for the frames per day and
sells about eight a week. At the Gainesville
store, only two pairs were left Saturday.
Pearle Vision in the Oaks Mall isn't car-
rying the frames. Still, four or five people a
day ask if the glasses are in stock, said sales
associate Amber Pounds.
Pounds said employees have been offer-
ing customers other rimless styles similar
to the ones Palin wears.
Keller said celebrities like Sally Jessy
Raphael, Larry King and Tom Cruise
inspire people to buy certain styles of


glasses. Even Harry Potter increased de-
mand for circular, plastic frames with kids,
he said.
"Whenever a celebrity wears a frame,
everyone wants it," he
said.
It's been a while since
a political figure has
made such an impact on
the world of vogue. First
lady Jacqueline Kennedy
was the last to blur the
line between politics and
fashion, said Sharon Austin, a UF associate
professor of political science.
Today, Sarah Palin and Michelle


Obama's personal styles are hot topics in
the fashion industry, Austin said.
"Both the media and public are fascinat-
ed with fresh faces and want to know how
someone could rise to fame so quickly,"
Austin said.
UF telecommunications professor Lynda
Kaid said the public is going through
a "necessary acquaintance phase" with
Palin, in which people find out as much as
they can about a new public figure.
Until that's over and demand slows
down, Keller said his stores would con-
tinue to triple their orders for the Kawasaki
frames. He said he hopes the period lasts
for the next four years.

Parties'


interviews


continue in Reitz


The second day of interviews
for students seeking spots in next
month's Student Government elec-
tion brought a change in applicant
flow for both parties.
About 120 students interviewed
with the Gator Party on Monday,
and about 20 interviewed with the
Orange and Blue Party, said SG
Supervisor of Elections Dan Siegel.
Student Sen. Benjamin Dictor,
Orange and Blue Party member,
said about 20 applicants came up
to his party's table because they
said their fraternity or sorority sent
them to register with the Gator
Party.
After filling out their qualifying
forms, two girls seeking direction
approached the Orange and Blue
Party's information table.
"Did your sorority send you to


register?" asked Dictor to the two
girls, who nodded.
"The Greek party's down
there," Dictor said, prompting the
girls toward Gator Party officials.
Gator Party President Luis
Nobriga said labeling the Gator
Party as a Greek party
Local is a disservice to party
News members who are not
Greek, and there have
been applicants from
all areas of involvement at UF.
"It's definitely not the whole
truth," Nobriga said. "I wouldn't
say it's an accurate representation
of the Gator Party."
Parties will continue interview-
ing students today and submit
their ticket for the fall election by
midnight.

D'Lites food violation dropped


* VIOLATION FOLLOWED
COMPLAINT FROM TCBY.

By CHANTELLE MARCELLE
Alligator Contributing Writer

The ice cream business hasn't
been all sweet and sugary for
D'lites Emporium.
The Florida Department of
Businesses and Professional
Regulation dropped a food mis-
representation violation against
the local low-fat ice cream ven-
dor Thursday.
Still, news of the investiga-
tion has cut business in half,
said Mike Roth, who owns the
two Dlites stores with his wife,
Cindy Noel.
The violation, filed after an
Aug. 6.inspection, stated that the
store was mislabeling ice milk as
ice cream and incorrectly report-
ing calories in the product.
Jenn Meale, a spokeswoman
for the department, said it was
determined that the department
did not have jurisdiction over


calories and that the term "ice
milk" is outdated and has been
replaced by "low-fat ice cream."
The case was unique because
officials were not sure which
department should handle it,
Meale said.
"I don't know why we
have statutes if no
one is going to enforce
them."
Ken Rembert
local TCBY owner

Roth said the entire situa-
tion was a misunderstanding
because the citation was based
on lab results from the mix for
the ice cream, rather than the
finished product.
Reports by Dlites that the ice
cream contains only 40 calories
per serving were slightly off,
Roth said.
The difference is because of
recent changes in the content of
the low-fat dairy the store uses in


production, he said.
The actual amount of calo-
ries per serving is 50, which is
the amount now posted on the
nutrition labels on the store's
Web site.
The inspectionwas performed
in response to a complaint from
local TCBY owner Ken Rembert,
who said the amount of calories
reported in D'lites nutrition facts
were impossible.
Rembert said he is disap-
pointed with the outcome of his
complaint.
"I don't know why we have
statutes if no one is going to en-
force them," he said.
Since the investigation has
been dropped, Roth said it al-
most feels as if he is starting from
scratch.
He said he is unsure how
to increase business for Dlites
again but remains hopeful.
"People loved us before, they
would love us again," he said.
"The problem is how to get
them back now that the air has
been cleared."

Starke shares experiences, struggles of being first black student at UF


MARCH, from page 1


planned to mistake me for a deer," Starke
said.
He said he was instructed to take a differ-
ent route home.
"I did what they suggested," he said.-
In a news conference after his speech,
Starke said his admission wasn't met with
the same hostility that students in states
such as Georgia or Mississippi experienced,


but he said it was still difficult to cope with
the burden of being the first black UF stu-
dent.
He said he gained weight and developed
allergies to "stupid things" such as chocolate
and grass. At one point, Starke said his mind
blanked while taking an exam in a criminal
law class in which he knew "everything
there was to know."
"It was disgusting, but, I mean, this was
just an example of the kind of stress that (be-
ing the first black student) could put onto


somebody," he said.
Starke decided to withdraw after only
a year at UF's Levin College of Law. He
regrets not getting his degree, but he said it
Multicultural was just too much for him
Affairs to handle.
"If I had to do it all
over again, I wouldn't,"
he said. "I would come to the University of
Florida, but I would not have been the first
one to do so."
Many students, however, are glad he


was.
"Without George Starke, what he did 50
years ago, I probably wouldn't be able to be
here today," said Student Body Treasurer
Paul Drayton, who attended the event.
"We must continue the momentum
and continue to diversify the University of
Florida campus," Drayton said.
Since Starke's acceptance, UF has gradu-
ated nearly 12,000 black students, according
to an e-mail from Bernie Machen sent to UF
students, faculty and staff Monday.

the importance of being educated
about the history of Hispanic an-
cestors.
"Nothing is greater than being a
Latin Gator," Laguna said.
Patricia Telles-Irvin, UF vice
president of Student Affairs, said
Hispanic Heritage Month should
be celebrated because of the
culture's language, customs, art
and music.
"We must celebrate and re-
member our heritage and its very
positive impact on our society,"
Telles-Irvin told the crowd.
As del Valle performed about
six of her pieces, she received
continuous applause from the
audience.
She read a love poem that she
said was for women who have
been victims of bad pick-up lines.


She also performed a spoken-word
piece titled "Tongue Tactics,"
which was written in response to.
someone telling her the way she
spoke Spanish sounded unedu-
cated, improper and lazy.

Editorial

Power struggle

McCain pulls ahead in

Florida
A lot can be accomplished in six weeks. If you are a reg-
istered Democrat living in Florida, then you'd better
ope that about 4 percent of a state's popular vote will
change in a month and a half.
A recent poll shows Sen. John McCain has taken the
frontrunner reigns in the Sunshine State. Looks like the old
man has dusted off his gloves and officially started swing-
ing at his much-hyped opponent. Could it be that the media
vacuum that is Sen. Barack Obama's campaign is actually
beginning to fizzle? We doubt it.
If we were to guess, we'd blame McCain's running mate
Sarah Palin for being the only person who has spent less time
on the national political scene than Obama. Her assuming
the limelight seems natural because she's a new piece of po-
litical meat for newshounds to overanalyze and eventually
tear to shreds.
We'd say it's also pretty safe to think that by not counting
Florida's votes in the primaries, Sen. Hillary Clinton's sup-
porters are still pissed and refuse to vote Obama. He has to
overcome dissent within his own party to win electoral votes
from key states like Florida, and we don't think he can do it
without Hillary's PUMAs pretending to be on his side.
We think the Democratic Party needs a pep talk, but we
certainly aren't going to give them one. They've shot them-
selves in the foot, so they need to organize a quick, strong
recovery.
With about six weeks left before the polls open, both par-
ties need to tread cautiously. Any slipup could vault one can-
didate ahead of the other, which is absurd considering both
men are saying the same things to attract moderate votes.
Now, all we have to do is sit back and watch the fight get
dirty



Bringing Sexy Back


While tuning in to
see Republican
vice presidential
candidate Sarah Palin's ac-
ceptance speech, we are al-
most positive that everyone
was hanging on her every
word, transfixed by her per-
suasive political statements
and promises of change.
OK, you caught us: We
didn't hear a single word
she said. Her glasses were
far too hot for us to care
about who she was insulting
and who she was patting on
the back.
For the first time since
Dan Quayle held the posi-
tion, Palin has potentially
brought sexy back to the
vice presidency. We'll bet
whatever she was blabber-
ing about was almost as
important, but we were just
glued to her glasses.
The only bad part about
them is we tried to order our-


selves the exact same frames
and it turns out they're out
of stock, so we can't be as
trendy as the potential vice
president, which probably
means that we shouldn't
even pay any more attention
to the election.
How are we supposed to
live without such magnifi-
cent eyewear? We've already
been fitted for our Hillary
Clinton pantsuits, and the
Jackie Kennedy pillbox hats
we ordered off eBay should
be arriving any day now.
If we can't get these glass-
es, we're going to fall far be-
hind on fall fashion, and we
can't let that happen.
Is all this talk about
Palin's glasses serious? Is
that what everyone is pay-
ing attention to?
Before we all go off the
fashion-trend deep end, let's
try not to forget what we're
doing here, folks.

Guest column

SG's party system
change is clearly the most powerful bipartisan
player in this election cycle. It is joined by the
call to throw entrenched special interests out of
government.
At UF, the Greek community has controlled Student
Government for longer than I can remember. Regardless
of names, one party and one interest group have domi-
nated SG. This ensures that minority interests will come
first when money is allocated and leadership positions
are filled. This also means important electoral reforms
are pushed to the back burner in order to maintain the
imbalance of power.
Some of this is not the fault of Greek dominance. In the
face of a turnout machine that can be easily run through
the organized network of sorority and fraternity commu-
nities, there has been no legitimate, organized opposition.
This failing, however, cannot be explained independently
of a political process that keeps turnout at a minimum
and disconnects most students from their government.
Any sort of accommodations for students who cannot
'make it to the polls on the two election days has been suc-
cessfully resisted, even though similar accommodations
have been made on other campuses and in the larger
electoral process. This naturally favors parties whose
base lives on or very near campus.
The Greek parties have defined legitimate campaign-
ing as creating a disturbance in the middle of the Student
Body's workplace instead of seeking out voters during
their free time, which is the common political practice
off campus. This alienates most students from participat-
ing in elections, unless a specific political organization is
compelling them to turn out.
The one person, one vote rule that is fundamental


JOHN
McCAIN


needs revamping
to the entire American electoral
process is completely smashed
in the SG system. There is no
sense whatsoever in terms of po-
litical accountability. Students are
forced to sort out the representa-
Michael Belle tives of their residences, their col-
letters@alligator.org leges and their class.
The result of this burdened
system is a blurring of electoral
contests, unequal representation and a weakening of the
bonds of accountability between the student and his or
her representative.
This year, change is in the air.
Through this lengthy election cycle, an unprecedented
political network of passionate, thoughtful students has
been built. It should not go to waste.
When November finally comes and goes, I challenge
the students actively participating in this presidential
race to do something in line with both maverick can-
didates: This spring, put aside your differences, start
the Change Party and accomplish something historic in
our SG. Kick out the special interest and fix the electoral
process.
If every student campaigning for a presidential can-
didate goes back to life as usual after November 4, they
will have failed to accept personal responsibility for
making change a reality, which is a core principle of both
camps. I strongly encourage the collective base of student
advocates for a better government to carry the banner of
change together to the spring's SG elections.

Letters to the Editor
Barr should withdraw from race
It is a travesty that Rep. Bob
Barr really doesn't stand a chance
in the national election. His beliefs
more closely coincide with mine;
however, I am still convinced that a
vote for Barr is a vote thrown away.
I refuse to stoop my vote down to
the level of mere symbolism. I crave
real world results, and I truly want
what's best for my country. Thus, I
must decide who is the lesser of two
evils McCain or Obama?
A depressing choice to be made,
without a doubt, but reality de-
mands it of us. I would love to have
Barr as my president, but the events
that have led to this point in history
have determined that it will not be
so. A refusal to look at the polling


numbers-most Americans don't
even know who Barr is-is a refusal
to look at reality.
What I am about to propose
will no doubt infuriate my fellow
Libertarians, but I would like to
make a plea to Barr that he humbly
face reality and withdraw from the
race, throwing his support behind
what he sees as the lesser of two
evils and lobby said candidate into
adopting more Libertarian views.
Ben Sarbey

Barr deserves attention
My compliments to Neal Conner,
chairman of the Libertarian Party
of Alachua County, for his opinion


piece entitled "Libertarian Party
Stands for Change" on Friday. What
a breath of fresh air in this other-
wise discouraging election between
two candidates who are very close
on issues. I can't tolerate another
minute of more of the same. Barr
is coming to Gainesville soon, and
I want to hear what he has to say
before I throw away my vote one
more time.

GOP represents middle class
Andrew Coffey asserts that the
Republican Party doesn't represent
middle-class voters. Does he think
Democrats do? Or is he just too


politically biased to see reality?
Liberals paint the Republican Party
as out-of-touch because they know
Democrats will lose on the issues.
The price of energy is a huge drain
onthe economy. Itis the Republicans,
not the Democrats, who want to
take actions to immediately reduce
the price of energy. Americans want
jobs. The Republicans understand
small businesses create jobs and
_support policies that give incen-
tive for creating growth. It is the
Democrats who vilify businesses,
tax them until it is unprofitable to
operate in the U.S. and then com-
plain when they leave.
Americans want medical care
that works. If the government didn't
tax middle class voters at such an


absurd rate, more Americans could
afford medical care.
Americans also want honest val-
ues. Liberals don't understand that
the average American loves God, fe-
tuses and guns. Current Democratic
leadership rejects all three as back-
ward and undesirable.
Middle-class voters will continue
to vote Republican until Democrats
stop talking down to them and call-
ing them bitter. The middle class is
under siege by Washington. They
see through Democratic positions
for what they are infringements
on their rights and unwarranted at-
tempts to control their wallets, lives
and values.

STUDENT LIFE

Political groups increase campaigning on campus


BY HUNTER SIZEMORE
Alligator Contributing Writer

With the presidential election
around the comer, UF's political
groups have seen increased activ-
ity and participation on campus.
The UF College Republicans
and the College Democrats have
grown recently with dozens of new
participants for the Republicans
and over 100 for the Democrats.
Gators for McCain and Gators


for Obama, the subsidiary groups
of their respective political parties,
have caused this increase because
of the upcoming presidential
election on Nov. 4, according to
representatives from both organi-
zations.
"A lot of political theories sug-
gest that younger people, and
students included, are just not that
involved in the political process,"
said Sharon Austin, UF associ-
ate professor of political science.


"From what I've seen on campus
recently that simply isn't true any
longer."
"I think we've shown some
impressive growth."
Mark McShera
College Democrats editorial chair

Each student group planned
different events to promote their
cause.


Gators for Obama staged a
flash mob a public demonstra-
tion where members carry signs
and come together and disperse
quickly on Turlington Plaza.
The Gators for McCain traded
Obama buttons for candy in Plaza
of the Americas the first two weeks
of fall semester.
Bryce Clebome, a UF political
science junior, attended the first
UF College Republicans meeting
this semester where he said the at-


tendance had almost tripled from
the usual 15 people of previous
semesters.
A recent Gators for Obama
meeting packed a room meant
for 160 people, forcing people to
sit or stand in the aisles. About
120 people stayed for the College
Democrats meeting afterward,
said Mark McShera, editorial chair
for the organization.
"I think we've shown some im-
pressive growth," he said.


McCain pulls ahead of Obama in Florida, poll shows


* OBAMA TRAILS WITH 43 PERCENT
OF THE FLORIDA VOTE.

By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Staff Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org

As presidential candidate Sen. John
McCain concludes his visit to Florida today,
his lead in the state appears to be strengthen-
ing.
Experts said it could be difficult for Sen.
Barack Obama to catch up to McCain, who
currently has 50 percent of the Florida vote,
according to a Quinnipiac University poll
last week. Obama trailed with 43 percent.
McCain's numbers are up from an Aug.


26 poll, which showed him with 47 percent.
' Michael Heaney, a UF associate professor
of political science, said he never expected
Obama to win Florida, which leans more
and more to the right every year.
McCain usually gains more support
among older voters and military voters,
Heaney said, and both groups are prominent
in Florida.
McCain's running mate, Alsask Gov.
Sarah Palin, has also energized the state's
Republican voters, particularly in the corri-
dor between Orlando and Tampa, said Larry
Dodd, a Manning J. Dauer Eminent Scholar
in political science at UF.
"Palin did signal that McCain was going
to be more attentive to historical conserva-
tive issues," Dodd said, citing abortion and


gun rights.
In addition, Dodd said, many Florida
Democrats especially women who voted
for Hillary Clinton are feeling alienated
after the national party's
reluctance to count the
state's primary votes,
Dodd said. Clinton won
the Florida Democratic
primary with 50 percent
of the vote, according to
CNN exit polls. Obama
^bama had 33 percent.
Those voters could still
come back and vote for Obama, Dodd said,
or decide not to vote at all.
To gain control of the state, Dodd and
Heaney agreed Obama would have to


change tactics.
"The biggest thing Obama could do is find
a way to connect with working-class voters,
middle-class voters, on the economy," Dodd
said. Heaney said Obama would have to
speak more directly about the war in Iraq.
Numbers could still change if either can-
didate makes a mistake, Dodd said.
If Obama loses any chance in Florida,
Dodd said, he would have to replace it with
another state that could still go either way,
such as Ohio, Indiana or Pennsylvania.
No matter what the rest of Florida votes,
traditionally liberal areas like Gainesville
will probably still vote for Obama, Dodd
said.
"If Gainesville goes for McCain, the elec-
tion is over," he said.

WR Harvin set to 'let loose' vs. Vols


* THE JUNIOR IS HEALED
AFTER SURGERY.

By BRIAN STEELE
SAlligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

Good luck, Southeastern
Conference.
On Monday morning,
Percy Harvin smiled and
said something no opposing
defensive coordinator wants
to hear: "(I feel) 100 times bet-
ter. I'm assuming I can be a lot
better."
Harvin said he's 100 per-
cent for the first time since his
sophomore year at Virginia
Beach's Landstown High.
He doesn't have to pop
Ibuprofen anymore to help the
pain subside. There's no more
feeling like "someone stabbed
me in the back of the foot," or
any more lingering sores from
doing the long jump in high
school or playing basketball.
There is, however, reason
to believe it's going to be far
more difficult to game plan
against the No. 4 Gators (2-0).
Harvin missed the pre-
season after recovering from
right-heel surgery and had
just five carries and one recep-
tion in his season -premiere
against Miami.
"(The heel) has been nag-

going me since high school," "(Meyer's) ready to cut me in the weight room because of


Harvin said. "All those years
it was tearing the bone in my
heel."
Needless to say, UF coach
Urban Meyer said Harvin is
going to be more involved in
the offense.
"That's a helluva toy,"
Meyer said of Harvin.
As Harvin put it, Meyer
came to him and told him,


loose."
Not to mention that Harvin
put on 20 pounds of muscle
this off-season. Last season,
Harvin was benching around
325 pounds. Now he's up to
420. For those counting at
home, the difference is about
the size of a female UF cheer-
leader. Since Harvin couldn't
even "squat all the way down"


his heel, he had to focus more
on his upper body some-
thing he now calls a "blessing
in disguise." All that remains
from the surgery is a scar on
the back of his heel about the
length of a marker.
"I needed to put on a little
more weight so I could take a
pounding," Harvin said.

Tartt, Moore will play; Doe probable


By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Staff Writer
edrexler@alligator.org


After sitting out the first two games of
the season with a shoulder injury, senior
offensive lineman Jim Tartt will play in
Saturday's game against Tennessee, coach
Urban Meyer said.
"Jim looks like he's ready to roll,"
Meyer said. "(Offensive line coach Steve)
Addazio is all excited about it, so is our
entire staff."
Tartt last played in the Capital One
Bowl against Michigan last season and
started all 13 games for UF at left guard
in 2007.
Also on the injury front, Meyer de-
clared junior wide receiver Carl Moore
will play against the Volunteers. Moore
suffered a hip pointer after making a


leaping catch on the right sideline against
Miami.
Junior linebacker Dustin Doe, how-
ever, is not in such good shape, and his
playing status for the Tennessee game is
not as clear. Meyer said he's still limited
in practice and is probable for Saturday's
game.
"I just have to keep working
hard, and stay patient and every
rep I get, just take it as my last."
Emmanuel Moody
UFjunior running back


IN THE MOODY: Junior running back
Emmanuel Moody has carried the ball
just twice for 2 yards in the Gators' open-
ing two games, and after Monday's prac-


tice, even he admitted he didn't know
why he got so few touches.
"The reason was pretty unclear,"
Moody said.
Moody also said it wasn't necessarily
the blocking schemes he is having trouble
picking up.
He received about 40 text mes-
sages from friends and family while
he was warming the bench against the
Hurricanes, including one from a family
member that said, "pack your bags and
start preaching."
But against the Volunteers this week-
end, Moody expects to get a greater share
of the load.
"(Meyer) told me I'm getting in the
game this week," Moody said. "I just
have to keep working hard, and stay pa-

Tebow heads


back to where


it all began
sometimes it's easy to forget Tim
Tebow is just a junior.
We've been hearing about him
being named Florida's Mr. Football, all
of his state records and waiting for con-
firmation on whether or not Superman
does indeed wear No. 15 pajamas since
early 2005.
Three and a half years later, after fac-
ing as much pressure as Aaron Rodgers
replacing Brett Favre, Tebow's trophy
case includes a Southeastern Conference
championship ring, a BCS champion-
ship ring, the
Heisman trophy
and all the swag
that comes with
it.
Those of us in
Karl Hyppolite Gainesville have
Hy-Lite Reels been hearing and
khyppolite@alligator.org seeing Tebow for
so long, that we
forget it was two
years ago today when he introduced
himself to the nation.
You remember this, don't you? With
7:53 remaining on the clock, Tebow
converts a fourth and 1 that saved the
Gators' national championship hopes.
Hello nation, my name is Tim, and _
I'll be staying awhile.
If you're a Tennessee fan, it sort of
felt like Tebow was that houseguest that
gets a bit too comfortable at your place.
Digging into your fridge and cook-
ing your ribeye steaks, wearing your
bathrobe around the house and inviting
the 15 people he met at the club to your
house for a nightcap.
Vols fans probably said, "Uh, Tim,
you're a freshman, and there are 100,000
of us. You're not supposed to be doing:
this."
It was there we learned No. 15 defi-
nitely had some mojo, that there was a
little meat backing up the hype. And
even though he's gone on to have much
more success than just that one play in
that one game, it's still something that
sticks out to him.
"It was my first opportunity to make
a play," Tebow said. "That's why I think
it's so special to me and to coach. It is a
play we had to make."

Junior stronger than ever


HARVIN, from page 15
-r~
Maybe he'll take a pound-
ing if opponent's defenses
can catch him. Harvin and his
teammates say he hasn't lost
any of the speed that helped
him total 1,622 yards and 10
touchdowns last season.
"He looks full speed,"
cornerback Joe Haden said.
"Every time Percy goes out
there and goes, he's full speed.
He never goes out there half-
speed at all."
Whatever speed he goes, it
gets his teammates' attention.
Middle linebacker Brandon
Spikes called Harvin the most
electrifying player he's ever
seen.
"He gets it and boom,"
Spikes said.


It was not easy to come back
for Harvin. The heel injury also
caused tendonitis in his knees
and, according to Harvin, his
hips were going "all kinds of
crazy" because he was over-
planting on
his other leg.
He said
the lowest
point of his
comeback
was during
two-a-days,
Harvin right before
the fall semester started.
"In the spring I was sup-
pose to be cruising along, and
I got out there and was trying
to cut like I was never injured,"
Harvin said.
"I paid for that during the
two-a-days. ...It was just me
being hard-headed."


Gators weigh in on Ohio State-USCgame


NOTES, from page 15


tient and every rep I get, just take it as my last."

WIPEOUT IN THE WEST: Various UF players com-
mented on Saturday night's blowout between
Ohio State and Southern Cal, most of them seem-
ing to have expected the 35-3 result in favor of the
Trojans.
Sophomore safety Ahrmad Black didn't bother
watching the game ESPN dubbed the "Collision in
the Coliseum."
"Nah," Black said. "I mean, we kind of figured
what the outcome was going to be."


KARL, from page 15


Tim, growing up a Gators fan,
knows how big it is for UF to
score a victory over Tennessee.
Memories of Danny Wuerffel
hammering Peyton Manning's
Volunteers teams may have
driven him to fight for that extra
yard as much as the desire to win
that single game.
"Tebow kept telling (Meyer)
to give him the ball," Percy


When told Ohio State is familiar with "SEC
speed," linebacker Brandon Hicks agreed and cited
Saturday's rout.
"Oh yeah, USC," Hicks said in monotone. "They
have speed, too." Then he cracked a smile.
Moody, who transferred to UF
from USC and confessed he still
cheers for the Trojans.
"I knew 'SC would do that,"
Football Moody said. "It's fun to watch them
because all my friends are on the
team."
And as for a potential UF-USC matchup in the
national title game?
"That would be nice," Moody said with a grin.


Harvin said.
"Coach said, 'If I put you
in, you better get this.' Tebow
looked at him with. this crazy
look, and he went in there and
got it."
Meyer has said Tebow was
one of the few freshman quarter-
backs he wouldn't mind placing
into a hostile environment (that
includes former No. 1 NFL Draft
pick Alex Smith) with a game on
the line.
If Meyer hadn't realized that


about him prior to that crazy
look and that big play, it's some-
thing he must have been positive
about right after the game.
On a team full of veteran
leaders like Chris Leak, Andre
Caldwell and Dallas Baker, it was
a child who would save them.
It was the youngest of the
bunch who was ready for his
close-up.
The Volunteers are just wish-
ing he wasn't getting so darn
comfortable.
