UF lacks funds for historic sites

By JACQUELYN WEINER
Alligator Writer
jweiner@alligator.org

The future seemed sturdy for 34 historic sites in St.
Augustine that needed renovation after UF announced
plans to take the buildings under its wing July 2007. '-
However, with the state's shrinking budget, UF hasn't
been able to fulfill that offer and probably won't be able to
anytime soon.
"The price tag to take care of these buildings is sort of
daunting," said Catherine Culver, marketing and events
coordinator for St. Augustine's Department of Heritage
Tourism.
During the most recent session of the
Florida Legislature, UF requested $22.5
million in state funds to tackle deferred
maintenance work on the historic sites,
according to a July 2007 report on the
sites prepared by UF.
UF also requested $500,000 to create
Dixon a master plan of historic St. Augustine.
The plan would identify significant
sites and the original t6wn plan, according to the report. It
would also devise traffic, pedestrian and parking solutions
for tourists.
The state granted the university $300,000 toward the
strategic plan but gave no money toward maintenance
work, said Linda Dixon, UF's assistant director of facilities
planningand construction.
Culver said the buildings, which include restorations
and original structures, are currently under the City of St.
Augustine's care.
However, the city is strapped for cash and has been un- 4
able to keep up with the sites' maintenance, she said.
Because UF didn't receive enough state money, it didn't
take over management of the buildings in July as planned, '...-
Dixon said.

Legislature is going to provide some money for the mainte- People walk past St. Augustine Art Glass, housed in the historic

Methodist church to break ground


By CHANTELLE MARCELLE
Alligator Contributing Writer

The postponement of one construction
project on the comer of University Avenue
and 13th Street won't stop another group
from building there.
After a year of delays, the University
United Methodist Church will break
ground Sept. 28 on a $4 million building
at 1320 W University Ave., the Rev. David
Fuquay said.
Fuquay said plans were put on hold
when a court case last September stopped
construction on University Corers, the

Comers on hold, the church had to create
its own individual site plan.
Frank Darabi, a: partner of the
University Comers project, declined to
comment.
Fuquay said the delays have been
frustrating.
"Most people have the impression that
the church closed or no longer exists," he
said.

N EVENTS INCLUDED SPEECH FROM
UF'S FIRST BLACK STUDENT.

Celebrations continued for the 50th
anniversary of integration at UF with a
ceremony at the Levin College of Law on
Wednesday.
The events, held on Constitution Day
2008, which is the 221st anniversary of the
signing of the U.S. Constitution, included
a panel discussion about desegregation
and a speech from UF's first black stu-
dent, George H. Starke Jr., who attended
UF's law school for a year
On before withdrawing.
Campus The event also honored
Virgil Hawkins, who paved
the way for Starke's acceptance to UF.
Hawkins applied to UF in 1949 but was
denied admission because of his race.
After nine years of litigation, Hawkins
agreed to withdraw his application in
exchange for a court order that deseg-
regated UF's graduate and professional
schools, according to the law school's
Web site.
In 1958, Starke was admitted to UF.
Hawkins eventually became a mem-.
ber of the Florida Bar but resigned after
he was brought before the bar on ethics
charges.
"I told my wife they're going to write
him out of history," said Harley Herman,
a lawyer who successfully fought to get
Hawkins reinstated to the bar before his
death in 1988 at the age of 81, during a
break in the.day's events.
Members of Hawkins' family attended
the celebration.
The day's events culminated in the
planting of a magnolia tree in front of
the law school to commemorate the an-
niversary.

Rabbi teaches free pickling workshop


BY DAVID CUMMING
Alligator Contributing Writer
Rabbi Pickle stood about 5
feet tall with a green apron and
a big, red beard.
Behind him was a buffet of
200 cucumbers, dozens of garlic
doves and cartons of kosher
salt, all waiting to be squished
and sealed in a jar.
Rabbi Pickle, or Menachem
Margolin, visited the Lubavitch-
Chabad Jewish Student Center
on Wednesday night for kosher-
pickle making, a free workshop
for students and area residents
to teach people how to preserve
kosher dill ickles.
More than 20 students took
home free, handmade pickle
jars stuffed with seven curled
green cucumbers in salted wa-
ter for preservation.
"They're nice and cute and
short and fat," Margolin said.
"They're just my style."
The workshop marks the
end of Jewish Heritage Week
for the center in Gainesville.
"We like to use pickling as
a vehicle to teach people about
the laws of Kashrut [keeping
kosher] in a fun, refreshing
way," Margolin said. Kosher
is the strict dietary law for the
Jewish religion.
Margolin and a group of stu-
dents from the UF Lubavitch-

UF students, from left to right, Mordy Kramer, Brian Dragutsky, and Daniel Pink, learn how to
make kosher pickles at the Lubavitch-Chabad Jewish Student Center on Wednesday night.


Chabad student group pick-
led on Turlington Plaza on
Wednesday afternoon. About
700 pickles later, more than 50
people left with a jar in hand.
"It's hard to get in a fight
about pickles," Margolin said.
Eric Bassan, co-president
of the student group, said the
group is trying to incorporate


the fundamental rules of kosher
with a fun experience.
"It's the only event where
you come to a place and leave
with a nice, big jar of pickles,"
he said.
The Lubavitch-Chabad stu-
dent group is a subgroup under
Jewish Student Union. Events
such as the pickling workshop


are co-sponsored by the Center.
The kosher pickle-mak-
ing workshops started three
years ago in Los Angeles, but
Margolin began in December.
He has pickled in Arizona, New
York and Illinois, but this was
the first workshop at the center.
"People are verypro-pickle,"
he said.

SG: Student privacy safe from alcohol policy changes


* STATEMENT SAYS CHANGES
FAVOR STUDENTS MORE.

By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Writer

UF's Student Government re-
leased.a statement Wednesday in an
effort to explain proposed revisions
to the Student Conduct Code's alco-
hol policy.
The release states that certain
proposed changes have been
modified to favor students more,
resulting from the efforts of Student


Body President Kevin Reilly and SG
support.
As a result of these efforts, the
release states, proposed changes
to the code pertaining to common-
source containers and excessive,
rapid consumption of alcohol have
been revised to eliminate concerns
that students would be in violation
of the code while off campus.
"No one is going to be policing
what they do in their private time,
as long as it's not associated with
a student organization, a student
event or on campus," Reilly said in
a phone interview.


He continued, saying revisions
to the code's alochol policy are not
actually policy changes.
"We're not making any chang-
es," he said. "It's the exact same
thing that it is
Student today, as it was
Government yesterday, as it
was a year ago,
as it was two years ago."
But not everyone is convinced
that is the case.
Reilly has taken some heat at
recent Student Senate meetings for
telling UF's Board of Trustees, UF's
highest governing body, earlier this


month that the student body backed
the revisions.
In a Sept. 9 Senate meeting, Reilly
told senators that he brought a list
of concerns to the attention of the
board and Vice President of Student
Affairs Patricia Telles-Irvin earlier
this month, but only about half of
the concerns were addressed.
"I only had so much I could fight
for," Reilly said then. "I did the best
I could with what I had backing me
up."
Sen. Heshan "Grasshopper"
llangkoon. said in a phone inter-
view that he thinks the revisions


will affect students negatively.
llangkoon said he believes the
changes to the code will make of-
fenses easier to prosecute.
Changes to UF's alcohol policy
are distressing because "it sounds
like they're enforcing sort of a prohi-
bition off campus," he said, .adding
he doesn't think the administration
has the right to change the code.
"Any changes should come from
the students," he said.
The trustees' Educational Policy
and Strategy Committee will vote
on the revisions in a phone confer-
ence Monday.

Activist offers 'First Hand History' of historic protest


By LAUREN IRIZARRY
Alligator Contributing Writer

A founding member of the Civic Media
Center returned Wednesday night to tell a
small crowd how her interest in social justice
at 8 years old led to a lifetime of activism.
"I never had a racist brainwashing, and
that set my attitude for the rest of my life,"
said Harriet Ludwig, a local civil rights activ-
ist and former journalist.
Ludwig, 83, who also spoke about her
civil rights experiences as a white womarr in
Alabama in the 1960s,was invited to speak at
the Civic Media Center as part of their "First


Hand History" series.
The series highlights the role of local activ-
ists in history, including why they became in-
volved with civil justice and what keeps them
interested in continuing, said Joe Courter, the
center's director.
Ludwig shared her memories of how
police lined the streets of Selma, Ala., after
Bloody Sunday, a civil rights march that
turned violent when police attacked the
crowd.
"When you see events on TV and read
about them in the paper, you don't realize
how terrible it is till you get there," she said.
Ludwig remains active in civil rights


and welfare reform, serving as co-chair of
the Education Committee for the League of
Women Voters of Alachua County.
"Most students don't go east of
13th Street and don't realize the
history in town."
Samantha Acosta
Civic Media Center coordinator

Her life-long commitment to civil rights is
what drew many to hear her story.
"She is a great voice for children and civil


justice, and I've admired her work for a long
time," said Lee Jack Price, who attended the
event.
Samantha Acosta, a coordinator for the
media center, said they wanted Ludwig to
speak because so many college students are
unaware of Gainesville's diverse history.
"Most students don't go east of 13th Street
and don't realize the history in town," Acosta
said.
Acosta said the media center's lecture
series has a dual purpose: to celebrate the
center's 15th anniversary and to remind
people that there's more to Gainesville than
they realize.

Depot cleanup, roadwork prompt building relocation


* OLD GAINESVILLE DEPOT IS
BEING MOVED TO STORAGE.

By KELSI KRIEGER
Alligator Contributing Writer
A piece of Gainesville's historic
train depot moved a quarter-mile
Wednesday afternoon.
The Old Gainesville Depot,
which has stood at the corer of
Depot Avenue and Main Street since
1907, is being moved into storage to
make way for soil cleanup, road-
work and revitalization of Depot
Park.
"A lot of our historic commu-
nity are quite excited about it," said
Commissioner Jeanna Mastrodicasa,
chairwoman of the Community
Redevelopment Agency. "This is
why the city of Gainesville came
about. This is a railroad hub."
The depot building, which sits
in the city's Depot Park, has been
on the National Register of Historic
Places since 1996. It needed to be
moved to dean soil pollution left
over from a 1950s coal plant, said
Patti Hart, Gainesville Regional
Utilities.project services director.
In the 1990s, GRU acquired the
site and the responsibility for its soil
deanup, Hart said.
After two weeks of preparation,
eight workers took more than three


hours to move the first and larg-
est of the building's four sections
Wednesday, using steel beams, dol-
lies, wheels and a semi-truck. The
three remaining smaller sections
Should each take a week of prepara-
tion to move to the fenced storage
site, Hart said.
Once the building is in storage,
Hart said, Gainesville officials will
work on a sepa-
rate project: the
Reconstruction of
Depot Avenue.
The road, which
curves around
the depot, will
be widened and
Mastrodicasa straightened for
safety reasons,
Mastrodicasa said.
The building will be moved 28.5
feet south of its original location to
accommodate the newly widened
Depot Avenue.
It will cost $440,000 to move the
building, Hart said. The Depot Park
project, including construction of a
storm-water pond, will cost more
than $24 million, according to a,
Gainesville Capital Improvement
Projects report.
The revitalized Depot Park will
include features such as a board-
walk, a fountain and a museum in
honor of Robert Cade, one of the
inventors of Gatorade.


Harrison Diamond / Alligator Staff
Workers set up barricades around a section of the Old Gainesville Depot building at Depot Park. The
section was moved Wednesday afternoon from the corner of Depot Avenue and Main Street.

Retractions won't undo

previous damage
or the handful of Gators who don't already know,
the drunk-dial is an irresponsible and detestable
habit. Drunk-dialing usually occurs after midnight,
expressing some feeling or idea that is normally buried
beneath sobriety, shame and instincts of self-preservation.
The next morning regret sets in, and the dialer typically
tries to deny the message he or she could only blurt out
while under the influence.
Tuesday, one brief Facebook message evolved into a so-
ber version of the drunk-dial that, if its contents hold true,
would be equally as vile as its inebriated predecessor.
The message, sent by an Indian Student Association of-
ficial, stated that if a student organization's members "fill
out the papers supporting GATOR PARTY and VISA,"
then their group would be rewarded with additional
Student Government funding assuming the Gator Party
retains control of Student Senate.
Later, a message was issued to retract comments made
in the original. In the case of drunk-dials, retractions usu-
ally occur when messages are truthful.
If the initial message was true, this is a despicable play
by the winning party.
Rewarding a student organization for registering for a
particular party sounds a lot like bribery to us.
According to Student Body Treasurer Paul Drayton,
such actions are "frowned upon but not technically il-
legal."
So, in terms of SG, what would be considered "tech-
nically illegal"? How can a challenging party dream of
having a chance to compete much less win against a
party that financially rewards participation?
The Editorial Board hopes that this proves to be a hoax,
and every UF student should be hoping the same.


Double Talk


Student Body President
Kevin Reilly is a magic
man.
One minute, he says he's
listening to his constituents
- the UF student body. .
At other times, Reilly
spouts statements placating
UF's administration.
In the Sept. 5 edition of
the Alligator, Reilly said.
that he thought the revised
draft of the Student Conduct
Code's alcohol policy had
adequately taken into ac-
count opinions from a
diverse group of students
and gone through extensive
revisions.
On Wednesday, Reilly
told an Alligator reporter
that the Student Conduct
Code's alcohol policy "is the
exact same thing that it is to-
day as it was yesterday as it
was a year ago as it was two
years ago."


Reilly has a politician's
innate ability to address
both sides of an argument,
but tweak the wording of
his messages just enough to
convince'both parties that he
is the good guy.
Policy revisions that don't
actually make any changes is
so nonsensical our heads are
spinning. Aren't revisions
and changes -one and the
same?
Here's our point: As
student body president, Mr.
Reilly, you are the students'
elected accountabili-buddy,
not Vice President of Student
Affairs Patricia Telles-Irvin's
lapdog. You need to shoot
straight with us once in a
while.
We aren't accusing you of
lying or cheating or stealing.
We just want you to know
that your careful wording is
confusing the hell out of us.

Racism still plays part in U.S. society


Sludge Jackie Glass told prospective jurors Monday in
Las Vegas, "If you are here to think that you're go-
ing to punish Mr. Simpson for what happened in Los
Angeles back in '95, this is not the case for you."
Somewhere in the courtroom, the prosecutors were
snickering.
Thirteen years after O.J. Simpson's acquittal on two
counts of murder, the former Heisman Trophy winner
faces the prospect of life in prison before an all-white jury.
The media surmised back in 1995 that Simpson avoided
life in prison because he faced a mostly black jury.
Given the same logic, I think we've seen the last of O.J.
Simpson playing on a golf course in Miami.
I know what you are thinking. We have a black man
seriously challenging for the presidency, so racism isn't
that big of an issue in 2008 America.
Not only is Simpson going to face an inherently racially
biased jury, but he also goes into the trial with a slightly
higher profile than the average criminal.
As much as potential jurors may pretend to act like they
don't remember or weren't interested in the Simpson trial
back in the mid-1990s, they are only kidding themselves.
The case dominated both print and broadcast media,
not to mention countless watercooler conversations.
As unavoidable as media bombardment is in 2008,
1995 managed to elevate the Simpson trial to a cultural
phenomenon before the Internet became a major news
source.
Who can forget the white Ford Bronco? Everyone
knows about the bloody, glove and Johnnie Cochran's if-
the-glove-doesn't-fit-you-must-acquit defense.
Some may call it karma; others may call it justice. The
fact that O.J. Simpson faces an all-white jury stacks the
chips in the prosecutors' favor Vegas pun certainly
intended.
Whether Simpson got away with murder should not
matter in his latest case. Unfortunately, creating an unbi-


,ased environment where jurors
have had no thoughts regarding
what may have happened in 1994
is unattainable.
Don't let me confuse you
into thinking that I attended the
University of Southern California
Daniel Seco as an undergrad or that I root for
letters@alligator.org the Buffalo Bills. I don't write as
a Simpson sympathizer so much
as a staunch critic of the current
judicial system where a man can't have at least one true
peer decide his fate.
I can only imagine the uproar of the media if someone
like Terry Bradshaw faced life in prison before an all-black
jury.
The case probably would have been settled out of
court.
We may live in a society that touts Sen. Barack Obama
as a sign that racism has been mostly curtailed, but in real-
ity, skeletons still occupy space in our closets.
Do the Jena Six ring a bell? How about Hurricane
Katrina?
For all I know, Simpson may be undeniably guilty,
offsetting the relevance of the jury's racial makeup.
Unfortunately, Simpson and his case represent a micro-
cosm of every minority forced to deal with the social ineq-
uities that continue to exist in a culture so quick to turn a
blind eye. A black man deserves to have every advantage
that is granted to his white counterpart.
Isn't that what America is supposed to be about?
To soften the blow of a baseless guilty verdict, the jury's
foreman could always console Simpson with the fact that
Southern Cal is No. 1 and his Bills face a Tom Brady-free
AFC East.
Hardly a fair trade-off, if you ask me.
Daniel Seco is a first-year journalism graduate student.

Democrats care about America, too
When I read Andrew Fells' Wednesday col-
umn about sticking to his conservative values,
I was surprised to find that I agreed with near-
ly everything he said. I also want a president
who values the Constitution, which is a docu-
ment Republicans have been using as a snot

lawyer, will protect the Constitution and ev-
erything it stands for.
I agree that small government is good gov-
ernment. This is why I am vexed by things like
the Department of Homeland Security, which
as far as I can tell only exists to whittle away
at my rights.
It is also why the irresponsible and disas-
trous deregulation that has transpired under
Republican rule, which is now resulting in
enormous federal bank and insurer bail-outs,
makes me sick.
I also believe in personal accountability,

The contrast this election season between
the Orange and Blue Party and the Gator Party
could not be dearer. The Gator Party seeks to
represent an overreaching university adminis-
tration and perpetuate its own hold on power,
while the Orange and Blue Party pledges to
continue fighting for the students.
The choice is simple. Vote to end the sleaze
in Student Government. Vote Orange and

Students discuss law, culture with Russian judges


* THE EVENT WAS PART OF A
CONGRESSIONAL PROGRAM.

By JENNIFER TORMO
Alligator Contributing Writer
In Russia, students interested in becom-
ing lawyers go straight to law school when
they finish high school.
Five Russian federal judges offered
UF students perspective on life and law


in Russia in comparison with the U.S. on
Wednesday.
The event was part of the Open World
program, which works on behalf of the U.S.
Congress to build understanding between
the U.S. and participating countries.
"One of the big problems between the
U.S. and Russia is that they don't under-
stand each other like, at all," said CJ Wahl,
a UF Russian senior and president of the UF
Russian Club.
Students asked the judges about foreign


lawyers, the responsibilities of the Russian
Supreme Court and how law school differs
in Russia.
At the end of the event, the judges asked
the students what they plan to
Student do after they graduate. Several
Life students said they plan. to be-
come lawyers, too.
A translator was on hand at the event to
translate the judges' answers to English for
the audience.
Ingrid Kleespies, undergraduate coordi-


nator for UF Russian studies, said she was
most intrigued by the cultural differences
that made it hard for the judges and the stu-
dents to understand each other.
"It's more of a cultural barrier than a lan-
guage barrier," she said.
Kleespies and Wahl agreed that seeing
the judges in person gave them a sense of
the order in the Russian legal system.
"The media is distorting the whole
Russia-Georgia conflict,". added Wahl. "It
was good seeing another perspective."

Stacey Gray is $150 richer, and
she never had to leave a com-
puter.
Gray, a UF biology junior, won
the Digital Literacy Contest, which
tested Internet research skills, at
Library West on Wednesday.
Each of about 50 contestants


was given 30 minutes to answer
50 questions using the Internet.
. Participants were asked to an-
swer questions on local resources,
government, technology, humani-
ties and science, according to the
contest Web site.
Prize winners were notified by
e-mail after the contest, and all
participants were e-mailed their
scores.


"It was challenging but
kind of fun."
Stacey Gray
UF biology junior

A total of $300, donated by
Alachua County Library District
and Books Inc., was given out to
first, second and third place win-


ners.
Gray said she wants to donate
most of her prize money to the
Orange and Blue Party's upcom-
ing Student Senate campaign.
Daniel Poynter, a Purdue
University graduate, created the
Digital Literacy Contest last year.
Since then, the contest has
expanded to include three other
universities Brown University,


Indiana University and UF.
Michele Crump, interim direc-
tor for technical services at George
A. Smathers Libraries, helped co-
ordinate the event with Poynter.
"I think it is a great event,"
Crump said.
"I think it's a way for [people]
to learn about databases they
haven't used before. I hope we
can do it again."

Renovating St. Augustine sites could benefit UF's preservation program


HISTORIC, from page 1

nance and repair of those facilities,"
Dixon said.
Three of the 34 sites in St.
Augustine, which is the oldest con-
tinuously occupied European settle-
ment in the U.S., require repairs of
more than $1 million each, accord-
ing to the report.
The sites include the Spanish
Military Hospital, a blacksmith shop
arid the Government House, which
is a colonial structure that sits in the
center of historic downtown.
The Government House was last
preserved in 1935 and is corroding
and crumbling. It needs repairs of
more than $14 million, Culver said.
So much in fact that a 20-pound
chunk fell off the coquina and con-
crete building into the courtyard
during a "little old lady's 80th birth-
day party," Culver said.
"Things like that happen around
this building," she said.
Management of the buildings
was transferred to St. Augustine
from the state in 1997 when the
state's preservation program, the
Historic St. Augustine Preservation
Board, was eliminated, according
to "Preserving the Ancient City
Through the Ages," a document
written by William R. Adams about
the history of preservation in St.
Augustine. Adams is the direc-
tor of the City of St. Augustine's
Department of Heritage Tourism.
Since then, the city has been re-


sponsible for maintaining the prop-
erties under a lease from the Florida
State Department. But because it
doesn't have enough money for the
repairs, Culver said the city has had
to let some maintenance slip to the
wayside.
"The monumental maintenance
that comes with maintaining his-
toric properties has become an (in-
surmountable) obstacle for the city,"
she said.
"The train hasn't left the
station yet."
Linda Dixon
UF's assistant director of facilities
planning and construction


So when the city's lease on the
properties came to an end on June
30, the plan was to transfer manage-
ment responsibilities to UE
State legislation passed in 2007
that authorized the transfer of the
state-owned properties to UF.
That didn't happen when UF did
not get the funds it required, forcing
the state to extend its lease to the city
for another year, Culver said.
Reasons behind the transfer are
financial and educational, she said,
adding that UF has greater fundrais-
ing capabilities than the city.
"The areas of study that could be
applied and used in St. Augustine
open the door to so many grants
and fund-raising opportunities,"
Culver said.
It also has an educational benefit
for UF students, who could use the


city as a living lab, she said.
The sites hold promise for
students of historic preservation,
archaeology, cultural resource
management, cultural tourism and
museum administration, according
to UF's facilities planning and con-
struction Web site.
UF's preservation program has
been using the nearby historic build-
ings in St. Augustine for at least five
years, said Roy Eugene Graham, di-
rector of UF's Historic Preservation
Studies program.
Graham said he has taught
courses in St. Augustine and plans
to lecture more there this semester.
"We've already started utilizing
the facilities, but of course, the uni-
versity isn't going to take responsi-
bility of the facilities until there is
funding," Graham said.
UF has had links to the-city for
almost 75 years, Culver said. That
relationship has escalated since UF
announced that it wanted to man-
age the buildings, she said.
With the completion of the plan
funded by the state Legislature, UF
hopes to secure more revenue in the
future, Dixon said.
The plan will be used to show
what can be done to renovate the
sites. Reynolds, Smith and Hills, a
facilities consulting firm based out
of Jacksonville, has been working
on the plan for about three months,
Dixon said.
The plan is due to the Legislature
by Feb. 1, she said.
"The train hasn't left the station
yet," Dixon said.

Web sites offer free online textbooks to students


* USERS CAN VIEW, EDIT
AND HIGHLIGHT ONLINE.

By LAUREN BAKER
Alligator Writer
Ibaker@alligator.org

Students may be able to save
some money if a new trend in the
textbook industry continues.
New Web sites have sprung up
offering free online textbooks.
One such site is run by Flat
World Knowledge, a publishing


company specializing in the online
publishing field, where users can
view, edit and highlight their online
book at no cost.
"We're opening up access to
knowledge for the people who want
it, said Eric Frank, a co-founder of
the company.
PDF files or hard copies can be
ordered for a fee. Frank said black-
and-white versions of the online
books are available for $35, and
color textbooks cost more.
Industries are going digital, and
publishing companies offering only


print copies are feeling the impact,
Frank said.
"They haven't changed their
model, but the world around them
has completely changed," said
Frank, who used
AUF to work -with
Higher education
publishers.
Frank said no advertising would
be allowed on the site in order to
limit distraction, and most of Flat
World's profit will come from sup-
plementary materials.
Flat World Knowledge launched


a pilot program with 26 universities
this fall, and UF was one of them.
Jorge Villegas, UF assistant ad-
vertising professor, uses an online
book on the site. Villegas said he
was searching for a book with new
material, and the lack of cost was an
added bonus.
"It's a good change to the tra-
ditional image of the textbook,"
Villegas said. "They are ridiculously
expensive nowadays."
A similar site is run by Lulu,
which is not a publishing company,
but provides tools for self-publish-


ing and a market for selling. Many
books may be downloaded for free.
University of Florida Bookstore
director Lynne Vaughan said more
than 1,100 e-books are offered
through the store at about half the
price of a tangible textbook.
Vaughan said she was unsure
how publishers such as Flat World
Knowledge could profit, but that
electronic books should lighten
many backpacks in the future.
"I don't know about the free
part," she said. "The digital part is
here to stay and grow."

Former detective discusses problems of anti-drug laws


By GUYANA HAND
Alligator Contributing Writer

John Baeza, a former narcotics detective for
the New York Police Department, remembers
the moment he decided to transfer from the
narcotics unit years ago.
Baeza was buying $16,000 df heroin under-
cover when the dealer led him into a building,
turned around and put a gun to his head.
"(1) was told, This is the end of the line for
you,'" he said.
Baeza escaped after a brief scuffle, but his
perspective on the drug war had changed.
Baeza told a crowd of about 100 people in


the Reitz Union Rion Ballroom on Wednesday
night that on that day, he decided people
should control their own bodies.
"I realized that I was gonna die over some-
thing that someone wanted to put in their
bodies," Baeza said, "My feeling after that was
that if they wanted to drink a can of gasoline,
let them do it."'
The UF College Libertarians, which invited
Baeza to speak, spent less than $500 on his
appearance, said Mike Segal, vice president
of the group.
Baeza said working as a narcotics officer
made him prejudiced because he saw so many
minorities arrested. He said the drug war dis-


"I wanted to come here and edu-
cate people who might not know
what it's like on the street and
who might not know that the drug
war is an abject failure."
John Baeza
former narcotics detective

proportionately affects minorities.
He represents an organization called Law
Enforcement Against Prohibition, or LEAP,
made up of law enforcement officers, criminal
justice workers and average citizens who do


not believe in the prohibition of drugs.
Baeza, who has eight children and de-
scribes himself as a family man, said he would
discourage the use of any substance that im-
pairs thinking but would want his children to
know that people have a right to their bodies.
"I wanted to come here and educate people
who might not know what it's like on the
street and who might not know that the drug
war is an abject failure," Baeza said.
Neal Conner, UF College Libertarians
president, agreed with Baeza's stance.
"As long as someone isn't hurting anyone
else, they have the right to engage in whatever
activity they choose," Conner said.

UF gives record amount of aid


BY KATIE.EMMETS
Alligator Contributing Writer

The first three weeks of the 2008-
2009 academic year were record-
breaking for UF.
"We have given out .a record
amount of money at this point of the
semester than ever before in the past,"
said Rick Wilder, Student Financial
Affairs associate director.
He. said about $155 million has
been disbursed for the fall term as of
Monday.
About $400 million was awarded
to students for the 2006-2007 school
year, Wilder said, and he only expects
that number to grow this year.
"This money comes from many
sources such as institutions, states,
private and federal funding," he said.
"The four main forms of aid are loans,
scholarships, grants and work study
employment."
He attributed the increase in dis-
bursed financial aid this semester
to the new communication efforts


through e-mail with the students
about their aid opportunities.
"With electronic communication,
we are able to give specific instruc-
tions on applying for aid, and there-
fore we have less students coming in
to the office to apply and ask ques-
tions," Wilder said.
"I am a little worried because
everyone I know has already
gotten their financial aid."
Cliff Wilson
UF sophomore

Karen Fooks, director of UF
Student Financial Affairs, said this
semester has been the smoothest she
has seen in 20 years.
While much of the money for this
semester has been disbursed already,,
she said students can still apply for
financial aid for the fall, though they
probably won't receive it until the end
of the semester.
Most of the money goes out to stu-


dents the week after drop/add so they
are sure the amount of money given
to each student corresponds with the
number of credit hours the student is
taking, Fooks said.
As of Monday, Cliff Wilson, a UF
sophomore, said he still had not re-
ceived his check.
"I have been waitingfor my money,
and my rent and other bills are com-
ing up fast," Wilson said. "I am a little
worried because everyone I know has
already gotten their financial aid."
UF offers many alternative ways
for students to have all of their ex-
penses met, Fooks said.
"We have book deferments at the
University of Florida Bookstore where
students can pick up their books and
pay for them when their financial
aid kicks in," she said. "We also have
deferment on housing in campus resi-
dence halls."
Additionally, she said short-term
loans are available to those students
who need to pay for off-campus ex-
penses and other necessities.


Church's site plan

awaiting approval

CHURCH, from page 1

meeting in the Presbyterian Disciples of Christ Student
Center on Sunday mornings.
Fuquay said the groundbreaking would be more
ceremonial than an actual beginning of construction. The
church submitted what he hopes will be the final site plan
to the city two weeks ago and is awaiting
Local approval.
News Francis said this site plan is dose to
approval but may need a few minor cor-
rections. The church has been approved to move forward
independently of University Comers, which has until
next June to get a separate plan in.
The church's two-story building would feature offices,
classrooms, dorm-style living space for 10 students, a
5,000-square-foot worship center, and a 1,600-square-foot
student lounge.
Fuquay said the church has a good relationship with
University Corers, and he is excited to see construction
progress.
"Happy is probably an understatement," he said. "We
are thrilled to death."

His roommate, then a cartoonist, drew two
mysterious pictures on the window. One of
them looked like a stylized ninja wielding a
gun. The other one looked like a frog, kind

by inspiration.
"I knew that a band called Pussy Frog
wouldn't sell many records," he said. "But
the ninja seemed to look really cool."

Deep thoughts on cyclists


DEVIN CULCLASURE AVENUE WRITER

I recently watched two bicycle riders col-
lide, which made me laugh.
Sadly, it only took that level of elementary
cause and effect to inspire this column. I'm
easily amused, and bicyclists along with
their strange, sometimes-spandex-sometimes-
skinny-jeans culture often stimulate my low
standards of personal enjoyment.
As for the crash itself, there's not much to
say. The two Lance Armstrongs were blindly
speeding toward the northeast corner of Reid
Hall, both aiming for the 13th Street tunnel's
narrow, graffiti-laden bicycle lane. As it turns
out, the lane is only wide enough for one bi-
cycle at a time. An

or whatever. People act like the two-wheeled
contraptions were invented in their lifetime,
not the early 19th century.
And like most trends, several behavior.
traits among its followers will slowly grow
to become regarded as stereotypical acts of
douchebaggery.
Take those who refuse to accept the fact that
bicycling across Turlington Plaza simply is not
the best way to cross that treacherous terrain
while classes are changing.
Soon after the aforementioned bicycle
wreck, I watched some whiz mount and un-
mount his bike ten times while trying to get
across Turlington Plaza. I managed to beat him
across the plaza, but only after, stopping to get
a paper, watching some step dancing and fil-

Now I partially understand the appeal of
bicycles: Gas prices blow, bikes are efficient
and as a bonus, you can totally go green if you
ride your bike to class while eating organic
granola. But efficiency goes out the window
if you can't grasp the concept of a crowded
sidewalk. What's wrong with parking it and
walking a bit?
Similarly, I can't figure out who is worse:
the cyclist who doesn't ring his or her bell
while coming up behind you but still gets
mad if you don't telepathically sense them
and move, or the cyclist who rings the bell but
decides a three-second barrage of metallic fury
is the best method of alerting you.

The hipster who thought
stop signs were too oppressive and despotic
to bother with shouted "share the road" after
I was kind enough to brake and spare him an
unfortunate meeting with the car hood.
Regardless, I get it, and I am all for sharing
as long as you are all for sharing those pesky
things that come along with the road street
signs, traffic laws, congestion, common de-
cency and even accidents. These days, bike
accidents are more frequent and not a laugh- -
ing matter, but news of the next one rarely
surprises me after seeing how stupid some
people act. While they may be overly Scrooge-
like, give my words some consideration.
In the meantime, I'm going to try to find
some other fun activity that everyone likes, so
I can be a dick about it too.

Georgia band talks about beginnings and hopes for the future


NINJA, from page 12


as well as old-school punk
- The Damned, The Clash, the
Buzzcocks, Black Flag and others.
When the band performs live,
he said, it sounds more stripped
down but still melodic "more
like a loud punk band."
"Popular music today is cor-
porate bullshit," Coody said.
"Everything sounds exactly the
same."
The members of Ninja Gun
all grew up in the South, which
Coody described as oppres-
sive. They wanted to distance
themselves from the "close-
minded, racist, white-Republican,
Christian conformity" while still
holding on to the cool stuff.
"There's a lot of willful igno-
rance there," Coody said. "You
just work the right job, go to the
right church, and you're fine.
If you state your opinion and it
doesn't fit the mold, you're os-
tracized."
Their frustration shows in
some of their songs, such as "Red
State Blues."
"In this pleasant state of bright


red, I'm legendarily alone," the
band sings, "Here on the narrow
path that we tread, we can tell
when right is wrong."
After moving around and
playing music in unfamiliar
towns, Coody experienced a cul-
ture shock whenever he returned
home. He would find himself in
a peanut field, picking weeds all
by himself. His state of mind led
him to write the song "Eight Miles
Out."
"That song's about sitting
around and waiting for something
to happen," he said. "Trying to
further whatever you do-- what-
ever it is that you love."
Coody began writing songs
when he was 16. A year later, he
joined the Bleeding Gum Drops,
a Ramones-style punk band. He
wrote his first song, "Midnight
at Magee's," about a waitress he
liked at Waffle House.
Jeffrey Haineault, drummer
for the Bleeding Gum Drops,
would later join Coody and play
for Ninja Gun. They met Thad
Megow and Jacob Sparks, who
were then part of an instrumental
band called Caspian, at a local
punk show.


"We invited them out to jam,"
Coody said. "It sounded good. So
here we are."
Sparks and Megow now play
bass and guitar, respectively, with
Coody and Haineault. Together,
they formed what is now Ninja
Gun.
The Ninja Gun image stayed
in his head for years until it was
time to name his band. Its first
album, "Smooth Transitions," was
released in 2004.
"It started this massive
fistfight. We had to get
the hell out of there without our
food, just because someone got
slapped with a dolphin."
Johnathan Coody 99
Ninja Gun vocalist
and guitarist

"It (the album) is about that
time in your mid-20s when you're
clueless," Coody said. "You're
lost, and you don't know what to
do with your life."
At about that time, Coody said
his brother was hitting 30 with a
stable life and a respectable job.
Coody, meanwhile,- was "driving
around in the van, eating shit and
starving." He gave up a sense of


security embodied by dental in-
surance and 401(k)s so he could
travel and make music.
"It's not practical to write
songs for a living," Coody said. "I
went to college and had a respect-
able job until about a year ago."
Goody's job was to represent a
restoration company. He spoke to
insurance companies about the ef-
fects of fire, mold and water dam-
age on houses. It was, as he put it,
"the most soul-crushing thing you
could ever do."
"How much can you really say
about mold?" he said.
In Ninja Gun's travels, the
members witnessed a fight in
North Carolina. It started at a lo-
cal Waffle House after they waited
an hour without getting food. A
member of one of the bands they
toured with began to complain
about something. Another mem-
ber of the same band slapped him
in the face with a plastic dolphin
named Dante.
"It started this massive fist-
fight," Coody said. "We had to get
the hell out of there without our
food, just because someone got
slapped with a dolphin."
The members also recalled


camping out in California under
the shade of redwood trees. They
often camped out and had bon-
fires in between shows.
"That was the first time we
ever camped out on tour," Coody
said. "We were surrounded by
3,000-year-old trees. It was magi-
cal, you know?"
Ninja Gun spent five days
on their first album, "Smooth
Transitions," -and "Restless
Rubes" took over a year. The al-
bum art, a distorted peach in the
shape of a heart, was originally
hand-drawn by Uri Garcia, the
guitar technician for Against Me!,
a band from Gainesville.
"It's a symbol," Coody said.
"We still love the South. It's a
pretty place with a lot of room for
kids to run and explore. We want
to make sure it doesn't get com-
pletely taken over by, well, dumb
people, you know?"
Besides Ninja Gun, bands
Watson and The Tim Version will
play Saturday at The Atlantic.
"There will always be punk
rock," Coody said, "even if it's not
in a form that sells. There's been a
good, underground, independent
punk scene ever since the '70s."

Turn walk of shame


into stride of pride


REGINA STUZIN AVENUE WRITER

Oh, the walk of shame. It's
something only girls really have to
face because guys are lucky enough
to have clothes that work for both
day and night.
We've all done it at some point,
and if you're a naive freshman
smugly thinking to yourself; "I
haven't," I have two words to wipe
that smile off your face: you will.
Trust me, it's a miniscule per-
centage of girls who go through
their lives not having at least one
walk of shame; hell, it's a very
small percentage of girls who will
graduate from UF without having
one of their own. Walks of shame
usually stem from parties, and we
didn't get voted the number one
party school in the nation for noth-
ing.
The actual walks range from en-
tertaining flashes of me running
down a busy street in oversized
heels or one of my best friends
calling me and demanding that I
"Google" her so she can find her
way back home come to mind to
sheer embarrassment, accompanied
by shouted catcalls.
Some walks may be brief, if
you're lucky, but they all have one
thing in common: They're shameful
because you're in your clothes from
last night.
Unlike guys, whose day clothes
double as night clothes, a woman's
wardrobe is extensive, and we like
to change clothing for every pos-
sible occasion. It's far more likely
that we'll wake up the next morn-
ing with only an evening outfit.
I'm here to help and give some
advice on how to avoid looking like.
you shacked up the night before.
For your benefit, I put myself
into your situation. I went into
my roommate's room armed with
nothing but a nighttime dress, a
bra and some underwear, which is
pretty much all you'd be.left with
as well. What I came up with are
some options that maybe you can
take to heart.
I'll begin with a warning: I'm a
relatively short, thin girl, and my
roommate is taller than me but
still thin, so if you differ from your
partner's body significantly, most
of my advice won't work for you.
Also, on the Alligator Web site, you
can see pictures of me in the cloth-
ing and judge for yourself. I wasn't
in love with any of these outfits, but
they'll do in a pinch.

Outfit 1: The Shirt-Dress
You've seen it in the movies.
The main girl's best friend shacks
up with someone and shows up
the next day at work in his shirt
making it look like a dress. Does it
work? Sort of.
You're in luck because manly


clothing is in this season. If you
take your guy's button-up shirt and
pair it with one of his belts or a tie,
you've made a dress. Does it look
like a shirt? Yes. Can you get away
with it? If you wear it with enough
confidence, I think you can. Whiteai
shirt or colored shirt? The colored
wins if you are wearing a different
color lingerie, but it's really your
call.

Outfit 2: The Workout Outfit
If you can get away with wear-
ing sporty clothes, it's possible you
can get away with this. Grab a pair
*of basketball shorts and a beater or
even one of his sweatshirts and off
to class you go.
Some walks may be brief,
if you're lucky, but they all
have one thing in .
common: They're shameful be-
cause you're in your clothes from
last night.


It's not the most fashionable
look, but if you're sporty enough,
your friends won't know the dif-
,ference.
And if you're not? UF is big
enough that there's a good chance
you won't run into anyone you
know, and people will assume you
just got back from the gym.

Outfit 3: His shorts
and a beater -
It's pretty self-explanatory and
along the same track as the work-
out outfit. You can get away with
it if you can pull of a boyish look.
If you can't, suck it up because it's
relatively comfortable and way bet-
ter than having everyone look at
your evening dress.
So those are your options for
dealing with the basics that every
guy has in his closet. If you're not a
fan of any of these options, I asked
around, girls and guys, and got
some advice:
1. Bring a big bag on your
date with some clothes, especially
underwear.
2. Keep a change of clothes in
your car at all times a bit skanky,
yes, but you never know when it
might come in handy, especially if
you're caught in the rain. Or not.
3. If you can't handle people
looking at you, skip class. I'm not
the biggest supporter of that, but
it's an option.
Now at least you have some
practical advice. If worse comes"<
to worse, turn your walk of shame
into a stride of pride.
If people stare at you, remind
yourself that they're probably just
jealous you got action last night
and they didn't. We can't all be that
lucky. So just hold your head up
high and wear that manly shirt like,,
it's a Dolce & Gabbana dress.

the crowd built as headliners rapper Yung

a cover of Oasis' song "Wonderwall."

Foster gets shot at redemption against Gators


m, w 0 on g mmdo 0
4M MOb411ANN 1 W 04MNO t


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

This season hasn't exactly
started the way Arian Foster
would have hoped.
Tennessee's star tailback
almost left for the NFL after a
junior year that saw him rush
for 1,193 yards, good for sixth
in the Southeastern Conference
and making him only the 13th
player in school history to
eclipse the 1,000-yard mark.
Coming off an SEC East
title last season, the Volunteers
looked poised to let their senior
playmaker carry them on the
ground as they earned a No. 18
preseason ranking.
Then they went out to the
west coast and fell flat on their
faces, losing 27-24 to UCLA in
the season opener.
That loss looks even worse
for Tennessee after BYU domi-
nated UCLA 59-0 last week.
Foster had 96 yards on the
ground against UCLA but
fumbled at the Bruins' 6-yard


line in the third quarter with
the Volunteers poised to expand
their 7-point lead.
"Week one was tough, but
this is a long season," Foster
said. "Anything can happen on
any given Saturday."
The 6-foot-i, 215-pound San
Diego native will have a chance
for redemption this Saturday
when UF comes
to town. The
Gators have
dominated the
Football rushing game
with 444 yards to
92 in the teams' last three meet-
ings. Foster has been part of the
struggles, carrying 17 times for
just 39 yards against UF.
"A lot of that has to do with
early leads, and that's how it's
gone in the games," he said.
"It's hard to get the run game
going when you're not necessar-
ily relying on it or going to it."
Still, both sides once again
know the importance of estab-
lishing the running game. The
team that has rushed for more

Swamp wows recruit


History weighs heavily on UF-UT


By MIKE DIFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

Gideon Ajagbe had visited UF be-
fore, but never like this.
The last time he was in Gainesville
was in July for UF's Friday Night
Lights football camp.
At the time, Ajagbe was impressed
by a nearly empty Florida Field.
"This place is a 10," the Coconut
Grove linebacker/safety said after the
camp. "I don't know if it gets much
better than this."
It did.
After sitting in the stands with more
than 90,000 fans during the Gators'
26-3 win against the Hurricanes last
week, the 2010 prospect said UF shot
up to the top of his list of potential
schools.
"I really like Florida a lot," he said.
He is also considering Florida
State, South Florida, Miami and Iowa
- the first school he ever received a


recruiting letter from.
Ajagbe, joined on the visit by his
father, met with UF defensive coordi-
nator Charlie Strong and cornerbacks
coach Vance Bedford.
"I really like Florida a lot."
Gideon Ajagbe
Coconut Grove High recruit

His dad enjoyed the trip as much
as he did and was impressed by the
attention the coaches gave him.
"I felt really comfortable there,"
he said.
Ajagbe also got a chance to talk to
2010 UF commits Trey Burton and Ian
Silberman, whom he sat with during
the game.
"They just told me about how good
the program is, but they didn't pres-
sure me or anything," Ajagbe said.
He said their parents got to talk

his is where it all starts for UF.
A win against rival Miami was
nice, and the looming matchups with
LSU and Georgia are circled on the calen-
dar, but the game at Tennessee will set the
tone for the Gators' chances to accomplish
their season goal: winning a Southeastern
Conference title.
The Volunteers are not as sexy an op-
ponent as the Tigers or Bulldogs and I
know the word 'sexy' should never be used
in a sentence that brings Phillip Fulmer to
mind but this game carries just as much
meaning as those matchups.
The hype the rivalry used to garner in
the '90s, when both teams were frequently
in the top 10, has dissipated some because
the Volunteers are unranked for the first
time in the series since 1984.
But, make no mistake, this is a huge
game for the Gators.
"Some of the buzz is maybe taken away

as far as the national
media or overall
excitement, but I
think between the
fans there's still that
rivalry," quarterback
Tim Tebow said. "It's
a huge game and
definitely one of the
biggest games of the
year."


Since the SEC expanded in 1992, either
UF or Tennessee has represented the East
Division in the championship game 13 out
of 16 times, with Georgia representing it
the other three years.
Defeating the Vols early in the season
would give the Gators a leg up in the divi-
sion, and a loss would leave them a long
road to climb in order to reach Atlanta.

Gators must 'swarm ball' vs. Vols


FOSTER, from page 24

yards has won 16 of the last 18 games
in the series.
"It's imperative that we establish
the run game this week," Foster said.
"The media aren't giving us much
of a chance."
Tennessee quarterback Jonathan
Crompton said a veteran offensive
line and running backs will be the key
factor in the team's ability to run the
ball and was optimistic.
"If we just put our minds to it,
we should be able to run," the junior
said.
"It's different from playing
(Atlantic Coast Conference) schools,"
UF junior linebacker Brandon Spikes
said. "(The Volunteers) just want to
line up and run it.
"You're going to have to stop
them."


UF defensive line coach Dan
McCarney knows there will be a lot of W
pressure on his unit.
While Foster and the other
Tennessee backs can run to the out-

biggest strength is
running between
the tackles.
McCarney has
21 years of coach-
-0 %a ing experience and
said Foster is one
McCarney of the best running
backs he has seen
and that Foster certainly has NFL
potential.
"If we don't play great defense,
we don't have a chance to win this
game," he said. "There's no real secret
to it. You've got to be physical. You've
got to swarm the ball. We know we're
not going to shut them down, but
we've got to slow 'em down."

M IKE, from page 24


has only managed to claw its way
to a division crown three times,
and that can't be accomplished
w4~hout some luck.
Here's a look at the type of
scenario that would have to shake
out for the Gators to make the
SEC Championship if they lose
this weekend:

2007: UF 59, TENNESSEE 20
NE GAME: UF turned a 28-20
contest into a laugher by scor-
ing 31 unanswered points for its
most lopsided win ever against
Tennessee.
Brandon James returned a
punt for the game's first score,
Percy Harvin racked up 195 yards
on offense, and Tim Tebow kicked
Soff his Heisman Trophy campaign
with four touchdowns.
The game got so ugly that UF
special teams player Derek Baldry
said afterward that a Tennessee
player told him he wouldn't try to
block an extra point attempt late
in the contest.
UF FADES: But the Gators weren't
able to capitalize on the win. If
back-to-back losses to Auburn
and LSU left them with hope, UF
toppled out of the division driver's
seat after falling to Georgia.
TENNESSEE REBOUNDS:
Meanwhile, Tennessee shook
things up by cruising past Georgia
35-14, the Bulldogs' worst loss


since 2003, and sent a shock
through fans who were expecting
a two-horse race between UF and
Georgia.
The Vols and Bulldogs tied for
first, and Tennessee took the divi-
sion because of the head-to-head
win.
They went on to lose to even-


tual national champion LSU in the
title game.

1997: UF 33, TENNESSEE 20
THE GAME: UF took the matchup
of top-five teams its fifth in
a row over Tennessee behind
quarterback Doug Johnson's
three touchdown passes and Fred


Taylor's 134 rushing yards. The
Gators put a big dent in Tennessee
quarterback Peyton Manning's
Heisman Trophy hopes with an
interception return for a score and
ran his record to 0-3 against UF as
a starter.
UF FADES: The win over Tennessee
was Florida's 23rd straight SEC


UF linebacker Dustin Doe picks up a fumble to score a touchdown for the Gators in their 59-20 win
against Tennessee on Sept. 15, 2007. The Volunteers went on to win the SEC East.


victory, but the Gators went on to
stumble against LSU and Georgia
that season.
TENNESSEE REBOUNDS: The Vols
ran through the rest of their con-
ference schedule and beat Auburn
30-29 for the SEC title.
They went on to face Nebraska
in the Orange Bowl,. where the
Huskers romped and took a share
of the national title.

1992: TENNESSEE 31, FLORIDA 14
THE GAME: Tennessee's Phillip
Fulmer, serving as interim coach
while Johnny Majors was out with
health issues, led the No. 14 Vols
to an upset win over No. 4 UF.
Majors returned the next week,
but the win against the Gators and
another against Georgia the week
before helped cement Fulmer's
candidacy for head coach. He got
the job at the end of the regular
season.
TENNESSEE FADES: With Majors
back at the helm, Tennessee
squandered its lead over UF
and Georgia by dropping three
straight to Arkansas, Alabama
and South Carolina.
UF REBOUNDS: UF lost to
Mississippi State the next week,
but won the rest of its SEC regular
season games.
A 26-24 victory over Georgia
was the difference for the Gators,
as they took the East on a tie-
breaker but lost to Alabama in the
title game.

Players feel need for speed in opening SEC contest


* THE CONFERENCE IS
KNOWN FOR ITS QUICKNESS.

By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

No, the football game is not on
fast-forward, although it might look
that way this weekend.
The No. 4 Gators (2-0) begin
Southeastern Conference play
against the Volunteers (1-1) on
Saturday, and yes, play may seem
a little faster than in their first two
games against Hawaii and Miami.
Tennessee coach Phillip Fulmer
agreed speed is an area where the
SEC sets itself apart.
"From top to bottom, I think the
SEC is the fastest conference," he
said.


UF backup linebacker Brandon
Hicks treats "SEC speed" as a term
that defines itself. The sophomore
said adjustment to quicker oppo-
nents has been the biggest thing he's
had to learn from his freshman year.
"It's like everyone trains just to
run fast, almost," he said. "People
talk about it, and you don't really
notice it or feel until you're actually
(playing) in it."
The 6-foot-2, 225-pound sopho-
more found himself barely quicker
than larger offensive linemen trying
to block him.
"I was like, 'Oh my God, I ain't
never seen a 300-pound dude run-
ning this fast in my life,'" Hicks
said. "That had to be the craziest
thing I've ever experienced. In high
school, you wouldn't worry about a
lineman ever touching you. You just
go one way, and hell be too slow to

ever come get you."
Sophomore cornerback Joe
Haden had a similar epiphany last
season. The preseason All-SEC se-
lection thought he was ready in 2007
after his first two games against
Western Kentucky and Troy from
the Sun Belt Conference
"Then Tennessee came here, and
they were about the same speed
as us," he said. "Troy and Western
Kentucky were about a step or two
behind, so even if you didn't know,
it looked like you knew what you
were doing. If you mess around
with Tennessee, they'll run right by
you."
UF coach Urban Meyer has said
many times that he looks to make
the Gators the "fastest team in
America."
The team has 12 players who can
run the 40-yard dash in less than 4.4

seconds, according to UF's pregame
notes. One of those guys is freshman
running back Jeff Demps, who ran
the 100 meters in 10.01 seconds at
the US Olympic Trials on June 28.
Demps holds the record among
American high-school runners.
Meyer prefers
to use the 100
and 200 meters
as gauges for a
player's speed
because he feels
they're more
"legitimate" than
the 40. He has
Hicks seen high school
players have a wide range of 40
times because they're often done by
a handheld stopwatch.
But the 40 has long been used by
coaches, and Meyer still uses it to
evaluate prospects.


"Some people say, what's the
difference between a 4.69 (seconds)
and a 4.5 (in the 40-yard dash)?"
Meyer said. "When you're talng
about a game in the Southeastern
Conference, it's inches or feet. That's
significant."
Alabama coach Nick Saban said
the speed at which a player makes
things happen on the field depends
on more than just how fast his feet
can go in a 40-yard dash.
"Initial quickness and tirSt
makes a guy looks like he plays a
little faster than what his (timed)
speed might be," Saban said.
