Board of Trustees approves code revisions


* STUDENT FEEDBACK LED TO
UPDATED ALCOHOL POLICY.

By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Writer

Perceived threats to off-cam-
pus keg stands have passed after
amended revisions to UF's 'Student


Conduct and Honor codes were
approved by the Board of Trustees
in a 15-minute conference call
Wednesday.
The board, UF's highest govern-
ing body, passed the once-contro-
versial revisions unanimously and
without debate.
.The vote caps an ordeal that
spanned almost two months and


saw heated exchanges on the floor
of UF's Student Senate and a stu-
dent petition against the revisions.
The uproar primar-
Student ily revolved around
Life two clauses that ban
common-source con-
tainers of alcohol, such as kegs, and
activities that encourage excessive,
rapid consumption of alcohol, such


as drinking games.
Some students were concerned
the bans were worded to apply to
off-campus situations, such as house
parties hosted by UF students.
According to the revised codes,
the bans apply "on campus, in the
housing of any University of Florida
organization or group, or in connec-
tion with a University activity."


Patricia Telles-Irvin, UF's vice
president for Student Affairs, said
in an interview that the language
in the original version of the revi-
sions was unclear about this and
said it was one of the first things she
changed.
However, Telles-Irvin said UF

Board to plan for spring


* BOARD OF GOVERNORS HOPES TO
BRING FUNDING TO UNIVERSITIES.

By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Contributing Writer

Florida's Board of Governors will begin
discussing plans today for the state's spring
legislative session, including finding a chancel-
lor in time to lead the board during the 60-day
session.
In its meeting at the University of South
Florida, the leaders of the State University
System will discuss what to do about
Chancellor Mark Rosenberg's impending
resignation and consider approving each uni-
versity's requests from the Public Education
Capital Outlay fund, or PECO.
Board members, who oversee Florida's 11
public universities, will consider today each


university's PECO requests, which provide
funding for planning and constructing build-
ings.
"How will they do the search, and
is there enough time to get it
accomplished before Chancellor
Rosenberg leaves."
Bill Edmonds
board spokesman

Each university has compiled a prioritized
list of PECO projects for the next three years,
beginning with 2009-2010, and submitted that
list to the Board of Governors.
PECO is a statewide trust fund for construc-
tion at public schools, community colleges and
universities.

Rick Atkinson brings dead people back to
life in books, that is.
Atkinson is the author of a trilogy of
books on World War II, in which he uses
narratives to account for what he calls the
"greatest story of the 21st century.",
"The author's task requires that the char-
acters be brought to life and stay alive," he
said, "in my case, through the trilogy."
The three-time Pulitzer Prize winning
author spoke and signed books Wednesday
in the Ocora Room at Pugh Hall.
Atkinson said he uses narrative to ensure
the real war gets into the books.

STUDENT LIFE

UF Baby Gator overwhelmed with childcare demands


BY CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

When Nitu Begur began at UF, she already
hadrenough to worry about.
Cut off from her parents because of her
choice in college, major and boyfriend, she
was forced to pay for everything herself.
Life hasn't become much easier since then.
Last February, Begur, now a business
administration senior, discovered she was
pregnant.
Across the nation, parents are finding it dif-
ficult to afford quality child care.
"Baby Gators has a huge waiting list and
is expensive, even for a student," said Begur,
whose October due date is quickly approach-
ing.


"As a student who already works full-time
and goes to class, which takes most of my
paycheck, that would mean one of us drop-
ping out and taking a second job so we could
afford it."
Begur said she understands UF provides
rates that are more accessible compared to
other daycare centers in Gainesville but be-
lieves more could be done to assist pregnant
students.
The solution Begur found to her problem
.was to work full-time at an off-campus child
care center, 02B Kids.
Because she is working full time, she will
be able to send her daughter there for free.
However, a simple solution is not always
available for students facing this challenge.
Pamela Pallas, director of Baby Gator Child


Development and Research Center, said the
center tries to work with students. The center
compares its prices with other local facilities
each spring to keep fees low, she said.
"We know we are not meeting the
child care demand."
Pamela Pallas
director of Baby Gator Child Development
and Research Center

Student rates for infants cost $185 a week,
$170 a week for 1-year-olds, $150 a week for
2-year-olds and $100 a week for 3- to 5-year-
olds.
Despite low prices, UF can't meet the de-
mand from students, Pallas said.


Baby Gator has a 250-name waiting list.
"We know we are not meeting the child
care demand," Pallas said.
Pallas said a new center will open in
January, which will help.
Still, it won't fix the shortfall, she said. Baby
Gator is always fully enrolled and rarely has
openings.
Of the 130 enrolled children, 80 percent of
the center is comprised of students' children,
both graduate and undergraduate. The re-
maining 20 percent is comprised of the faculty
and staff's children, Pallas said.
Begur said she believes that since child care
is a necessity, it should be more obtainable.
"I wish UF was friendlier with it, and it
doesn't help that I won't be getting financial
aid money until next year," she said.

Gas prices still


rising locally

* REPORTS OF PRICE GOUGING IN
ALACHUA COUNTY DOUBLED TO 18.

By ASHLEY HEMMY
Alligator Writer

Although the threat of increasing gas prices
from Hurricane Ike is passing, reports of price
gouging are still on the rise in Gainesville.
The number of gas gouging
Local complaints has doubled to 18 in
News Alachua County fromlast week, ac-
cording to a release from the Florida
Attorney General's Office.
The number of complaints in the state has
risen from 1,841 to 3,066, the report said.
Hurricane Ike, which was partly responsible
for a gas shortage in the Southeast last week, con-
tinues to incite price gouging, said Sandi Copes, a
spokeswoman for the office.
The reported gouging has been anywhere be-
tween 30 cents and $1.50 over average per-gallon
gasoline prices, Copes said.
The average gas price Wednesday was $3.76
in Florida and $3.84 in Gainesville, according to
AAA.
Most Florida counties have actually experi-
enced a decrease in price-gouging complaints,
Copes said.

Man robs store with sticks


Gainesville Police arrested a man
Tuesday in connection with a robbery at a
Walgreens earlier in the week, where two
sticks were used as a fake gun.
Samuel Joel Dread, 19, was arrested at
11:43 p.m. on charges of armed robbery, a
GPD report stated.
On Monday, a man walked into the
Walgreens at 1615 NW 13th St. and told the
clerk he had a gun, the report said.
The clerk took more than $300 from
Sthe register, put the money in a plastic
Walgreens bag and handed it over, it
stated.
The man drove away in a car that had
a neon light around the license plate, the
report said.
An officer pulled Dread over at about 11


p.m. Tuesday and convinced him to go to
the police station, it stated.
At the station, Dread told police he had
committed the robbery and that the weap-
on was actually a fake gun made from two
sticks, the report stated.
He told police he was un-
S able to keep a job and needed
LOcae money, it stated.
News Dread also told police he
committed another robbery
on Sept. 8 at the Outreach Thrift Store, the
report stated.
GPD spokeswoman Summer Hallett
said it is expected that Dread will be
charged in the robbery at the Outreach
Thrift Store.

Students crowd career fair


* ABOUT 6,000 STUDENTS
ATTENDED THE SHOWCASE.

BY LUCAS MOREAU
Alligator Contributing Writer

Normally, when the O'Connell Center
fills to capacity, the sight is that of a mas-
sive horde of orange and blue, and all
other sounds are drowned out by a con-
tinuous roar of pure, unadulterated school
spirit.
It was different Wednesday during the
last day of the Career Showcase. A sea of
black and gray suits replaced the typical
game-day apparel.
About 6,000 students attended the two-
day event.
This year, 387 companies participated
in the showcase, said Ja'Net Glover, assis-
tant director for career events at the Career
Resource Center. Companies including


Microsoft, Pratt & Whitney, Boeing,
PepsiCo and AT&T.
Robert Dotson, team captain of the
Dow Chemical Company recruiting team,
has been attending Career Showcase at UF
for 18 years.
"It's almost godlike, in some
ways."

Dow Chemical team captain

Dotson, a UF alumnus, finds the atmo-
sphere friendly but said it can be tense at
times.
He realizes the importance of the brief,
two- or three-minute interviews and takes
the whole thing very seriously.
"I'm really deciding a career path
for them, yes or no, with my company,"
Dotson said. "It's almost godlike, in some
ways."

Editorial


Strategery

Debates more about

politics than economy
We thought our economy's fundamentals were
strong.
A reliable source told us and a whole bunch of
our fellow Americans everything was going to be OK.
Then bang, bang, bang there were Freddie, Fannie
and Merrill all in a row.
Now, we're hearing about billions of dollars going to cor-
porate bailouts, credit disappearing and life savings circling
the drain. To top it all off, now one of the candidates is trying
to postpone Friday's presidential debate. A lot can happen in
a couple of weeks.
Sen. John McCain said it's in the country's best interests
to push the debate to the back burner to focus on America's
immediate issue, the floundering economy. He wants to take
the weekend off from campaigning to head to Washington to
"work for a bipartisan solution."
On the other hand, his opponent Sen. Barack Obama
believes the candidates should go through with the debate.
Obama is reportedly keeping tabs on the economy by con-
sulting with Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and those
negotiating the bailout strategy.
How convenient. We've got an- election approaching, a
dire issue that needs immediate, full attention and the two
guys who could potentially become the next president feed-
ing us nothing but absolute garbage.
We get it. McCain doesn't understand the economy.
Neither do we.
The problem is that he goes on TV and tries to explain it to-
us, which only serves to further confuse all parties involved.
Obviously, he wants to get back to D.C. so someone on the
Hill can give him some insight into this issue.
Then there's Obama. The dream-weaver who can silence
thousands by simply clearing his throat, but who is still
enough of an everyman to appear to care about a Gators
football game during his appearance in nearby Jacksonville.
He also believes this whole economy nonsense should be
immediately addressed but in the form of a debate.
Why stop campaigning for an issue when you can keep
doing a thousand things at once?.
Typically, presidents don't have to deal with only one
thing at a time. Isn't that right, Mr. Hope-I'm-President?
The way we see it, both these guys are full of it.
We're not saying they don't care about the economy be-
cause they have to. They live here just like the rest of us, so
their interest in the situation is as valid as ours.
What we saw when we read McCain's announcement
to put his campaign on hold is a man realizing he's losing
ground and deciding to retreat.
As for Obama, we see a normally congenial candidate
going for his opponent's jugular the moment he smells a
weakness.
Both candidates' reactions are completely politically
based. That's a problem.
Despite the U.S.'s awful economic state, both men con-
tinue to make decisions only in their best personal interests.
McCain needs to regroup and learn something, while
Obama wants to knock his opponent out of the park by prey-
ing on his failings.
Meanwhile, we get to twiddle our thumbs, watch our
economy bob along at the speed of smell and cross our fin-
gers in hopes that, at some point, someone neither of these
two fellas, though is able to do something about it.

Tradition dies with
ear Hank,
Is it okay if I call you that? Would you prefer
Mr. Steinbrenner? I don't want to make you feel
too old.
Simply put, why are you closing Yankee Stadium?
Why did you feel it was necessary to abuse the taxpay-
ers of New York City to build a new stadium in the middle
of our country's economic misfortunes?
I'm not even sure if I can call it a stadium maybe the
sixth borough of New York would be more appropriate.
Hank, forgive me if I come across as irrational, but tell
me: Why now?
Why, when Yankee Stadium sells out night after night,
even when the product on the field isn't exactly what one
would call championship-caliber?
Don't tell me that you are doing this to ensure your
dad's legacy. Your father doesn't need a new stadium
built during the twilight years of his life for his name to
go down in history as an all-time Yankee great.
Hell, he has so many memories there he didn't even
need to be at the last game.
Hank, you have a lot of work to do if you ever want
to be remembered like your father. Too much of your
reputation stems from whining and indecision about Joba
Chamberlain; try to change that to World Series rings and
lavish downtown parades.
I must commend you, though. Even in the wake of a
pretty miserable season for the New York Yankees, you've
managed to make the last season at Yankee Stadium look
pretty dam classy.
The commemorative ball used during every game, the
All-Star Game in the Bronx and, of course, the last game at
the stadium featuring all the Yankee greats topped off by a
touching speech from Derek Jeter in its final moments.
Was this an honest gesture to the fans or a series of sly
distractions to'keep their minds off the fact that, as of last
Sunday night, baseball will no longer be played at the hal-

Yankee Stadium
lowed Yankee Stadium?
Hank, do I need to give you
a laundry list of examples to ex-
plain the lore of Yankee Stadium
to you?
Do the names Babe Ruth, Lou
Daniel Seco Gehrig, Mickey Mantle, Roger
letters@alligator.org Maris and Joe DiMaggio ring a
bell?
Ever taken a walk in Monument
Park or watched a game with the Bleacher Creatures in
right field?
Sure, the stadium is old, but so are Wrigley Field and
Fenway Park. Maybe the seats are a little small, but we
can all afford to lose a few pounds. Perhaps the smell on
a hot summer day is a bit musty, but that's the Bronx for
you.
Hank, I'm not some hapless Red Sox fan trying to ruf-
fle your feathers quite the contrary, actually. I write as a
concerned Yankees fan wondering from afar what closing
"The House that Ruth Built" will do to the organization.
You are giving up so much in the name of history and
tradition that I'm not so sure you are going to get such
good returns on your investment.
The new stadium will probably be a sight to see, but
New Yorkers know beauty doesn't last. I hope you don't
expect the magic of Yankee Stadium to pack up and move
across the street just because you want it to.
I guess my parting words of advice to you, Hank, are
to not rest on your laurels. Don't get too comfortable
and think that because you have this fancy new stadium
you will continue to draw fans regardless of where the
Yankees are in the standings.
Ask any true fan. That's not what being a Yankee is all
about.

Leter to the Editor
Christianity influenced founding fathers
It is baseless to say that America's
founding fathers were, to quote Wes Hunt,
"vehemently anti-Christian," and to char-
acterize the preachers of the Second Great
Awakening as swindlers.
Hunt's example of Mason Weems paints
an incorrect image of the Second Great
Awakening as a whole.
In actuality, its leaders spurred Christians
to reform society by pursuing women's
rights and abolition.
To claim to know about the hearts and
faiths of the founding fathers who lived
more than 200 years ago is also unreason-
able. Furthermore, there are letters written
by the fathers that contradict the argument
Hunt made.
In an 1813 letter to Thomas Jefferson, John
Adams discussed the principles through
which the liberty of this nation was attained.
"Now I will avow, that I then believed,
and now believe, that those general prin-
ciples of Christianity, are as eternal and im-
mutable, as the existence and attributes of
God," he wrote.
In an 1803 letter, Jefferson wrote: "To the
corruptions of Christianity I am indeed op-
posed; but not to the genuine precepts of
Jesus himself. I am a Christian, in the only
sense He wished any one to be; sincerely at-
tached to His doctrines."
Jefferson and Adams, among many oth-
ers, were deeply influenced by Jesus Christ
and his teachings, and to say that our na-
tion's foundation has no roots in Christianity
is a lie.

Guest column

U.S. should promote learning languages


ff T.evin is an American. He is in
SMoscow now. Repeat after

As the class joyfully chorused back to
Ludmila Vladimirovna, our elementary
Russian professor, I couldn't help but
contrast the experience to my time in the
class Spanish 140 freshman year.
That class, which followed Alessandro
and Pablo on their journey through el sig-
lo de oro, had 25 students in it. My current
Russian class, which examines Kevin's
massive crush on Tanya in the Putin era,
has eight.
It's not exactly shocking to note that
intermediate Spanish and French classes
are overrun with freshmen intent on ful-
filling the University of Pennsylvania's
language requirement. After four years
of a language in high school with an AP
exam or two thrown in, it makes sense
to complete those courses and achieve a
relative' degree of proficiency.
But while Spanish and French are
invaluable languages in an increasingly
globalized world, the government's
National Security Language Initiative,
passed in 2006, makes a good case for
imbibing Russian, Hindi, Chinese and
Arabic as well.
Under the Bush administration's
plan, millions of dollars have been al-
located to funding new programs that
emphasize learning languages deemed
critical to national security.
Have students caught the Azeri fever
and signed up in droves? According to
Dan Davidson, president and co-founder
of American Councils for International


Julie Steinberg Education, out
U-Wire of 17 million cur-
rent university
students, only 1.2
million are studying a language. Of those
students, the number studying Russian
and Arabic has increased slightly or lev-
eled off. Similarly, since 2006, the num-
ber of students at Penn taking Russian
has remained stable, at about 28 students
in first-year Russian every fall semester.
Although these numbers are en-
couraging, there are still about seven
times the amount of Spanish courses as
Russian ones.
Arabic, on the other hand, has seemed
to flourish at Penn. Roger Allen, chair-
man of the Department of Near Eastern
Languages and Civilizations, said there
are 100 students in first-year Arabic, a
major increase since 2001.
While studying these languages at a
university provides an important foun-
dation for future study, learning and
living in-country can have innumerable
benefits for those intent on mastering the
dialect.
"You're learning every minute you're
awake," said history professor Benjamin
Nathans, who studied abroad at
Leningrad State University in the 1980s.
"It's really important for Americans,
who tend to know a lot less about other
people than they know about us, to have
experiences abroad."
And some of these programs oblige.
The State Department-run Fulbright
program and the Critical Languages
Scholarship program offer a limited


number of awards to students who want
to study abroad be it in Tashkent,
Uzbekistan or Suzhou, China.
The problem is many of the pro-
.grams are contingent upon previous
knowledge of the language. While I'm
desperate to get to Russia, I can only win
an award if I have a working knowledge
of Russian equal to two years' college in-
struction. I have just learned how to say,
"Misha, you stole my vodka" -- I doubt
the government will be inclined to give
me money.
It's easy to understand. After all,
giving large grants is a hefty gamble on
students who may become disillusioned
after trying to master 3,000 Chinese
characters. But if the government is se-
rious about attracting more students to
agencies that desperately need them, it
may not hurt to hand out funds to those
without prior instruction.
Even after Bush leaves office, the U.S.
will remain embroiled in conflicts in the
Middle East and Central Asia. Without
a federal workforce versed in those lan-
guages, our presence there will become
more and more fruitless.
The only way to ensure American
integration into a global realm is to make
sure students who will become our
civil servants can literally understand
the U.N. manuals.
Kevin understands the need to in-
gratiate with Tanya. We should too, if
the government and educational system
better facilitate the process.
Julie Steinberg is a student at
University of Pennsylvania.

Applicants for Preview staff face more competition


* THERE ARE ONLY ABOUT
40 SPOTS ON STAFF.

By GUYANA HAND
Alligator Contributing Writer
The application process to join
next summer's Preview staff will
be a little more of a battle than in
recent years.
Ann H. Becks, director of UF's


New Student Programs, said about
140 students have applied to join
Preview, which serves as an ori-
entation program for UF freshmen
and transfer students.
In a typical year, about 115 stu-
dents apply, she said. Preview staff
members are paid about $2,200 for
working the entire summer, ac-
cording to the application.
Although the number of stu-
dents applying has increased, only


about 40 students will be selected .
at the end of the process.
Becks said applications for the
program were adver-
Student tised just like any oth-
Life er year, and she isn't
sure why more people
decided to apply.
The selection process consists
of three rounds. The first, a group
interview, began Wednesday.
Students participated in three


activities, including one called
"Toxic Waste." Students transport-
ed a bucket of "toxic" balls across
the room with a rope and bungee
cord without dropping them.
Becks said the activities al-
lowed candidates to show their
communication styles and prob-
lem-solving skills.
The second round is an indi-
vidual interview with a UF faculty
member and former Preview staff-


er, and the third is an individual
interview with the staff of New
Student Programs. The staff will
be chosen in late October, accord-
ing to the Preview Web site.
Becks said some students apply
thinking Preview is all fun and
games.
"It's not just all the rah-rah
cheerleader stuff," Becks said.
"There are very enjoyable things to
it, but it is work."

Bowling shoe sales lacking


* 'FASHION' BOWLING SHOES CAN'T
BE USED FOR BOWLING.

By JACLYN ROSANSKY
Alligator Contributing Writer
To prevent students from walking out
with its'bowling shoes, the Reitz Union
Game Room is offering a fashionable pair
for sale. But now it can't get the shoes off
the shelves.
Charlotte Dare, game room manager,
said no one has bought the shoes so far.
The Eye Catchers shoes were meant to be
a fashion statement and not meant for bowl-
ing, Dare said.
Dare said she had heard rumors of
people stealing bowling shoes to wear out,
so it seemed like a good idea to try selling
fashion-only bowling shoes.
The shoes cost $39.99 a pair, but Dare
said she is considering a price reduction.
Dare said she and some of her employees
were given a pair of the shoes to try for free.
The trial period began in May and will last
through December, so it doesn't cost UF
anything to sell the shoes.
In the meantime, Dare said she wants to
begin advertising the shoes more.


Although the shoes' design is fashion-
based, feedback from various UF students
in the game room stated otherwise.
One student said the color scheme was
atrocious. Another said the shoe is not
pleasing to the eye.
Dare said she tried to get the shoes to
come in an orange and blue color scheme,
but as of now they come in blue and yellow,
plum and brown, hot pink and green, and
hot pink and yellow.
The shoes can't be used
On for bowling because the heel
Campus would mar the approach to
the lane. Also, the bottom of
the shoe is not slippery, which
could create a hazard for bowlers, Dare
said.
Zarana Upadhyay, a Reitz Union game
room employee, said the shoes would be
more appealing if they could be worn while
bowling.
The shoes should also be available in
more neutral color combinations so they
could be easily matched with clothing,
Upadhyay added.
Although Dare agreed some of the color
combinations of the shoes are not the most
flattering, she said the shoes are surpris-
ingly comfortable.


Author expects book three in 2012


SPEAKER, from page 1

will document the end of the war, will
be completed in the fall of 2012.
"From the beginning of this enter-
prise, my presumption has been no
21st-century reader can understand
the ultimate Allied victory in Europe
without understanding what came
before," he said.
The event, sponsored by the
Samuel Proctor Oral History Program
and the Department of History, at-
tracted about 100 people and several
World War II veterans in attendance.
One of them, Phil Newman, was a
B-17 pilot stationed in Foggia, Italy.
Newman said he actually learned
things about the war from reading the
book, such as what was happening on
the ground while-he was in the air.
"I've been there, but I need it to re-
fresh my memory," Newman said.
He said he's read many books on
World War II, but Atkinson's second


book is one of the best.
Wade Speake, a UF finance and
anthropology junior, said he attended
the event because "The Day of Battle"
is his dad's favorite book, and he
wanted to get it signed.
"It's better than just putting
out facts. He actually brings
you into it."
Wade Speake
UFjunior

He said he was impressed by
Atkinson's book because he deals with
the characters on a personal level.
"It's better than just putting out
facts," Speake said "He actually
brings you into it."
Atkinson has written five books
with a war theme and considers all of
them antiwar books.
"War shapes us," Atkinson said.
"It's a way of looking at who we are."

Student input influences changes


REGULATIONS, from page 1

never intended to punish students of legal
age who choose to drink in their homes off
campus.
"Your private home is your private home,"
she said.
Telles-Irvin said the new codes passed
Wednesday are much better than the original
codes proposed in late July.
A big reason they are better, she said, is
the amount of student input that went into
modifying them.
She said feedback on the iTew codes was
gathered from the extended comment period,
which, according to UF records, was stretched
from the typical 14 days to 44 days.
Although no one requested a student
forum, she said she decided to hold one any-
way in August because she recognized the
importance and contentiousness of the issue.
Before the board voted on Monday, she
singled out one student in particular for
his work on the new codes: Student Body
President Kevin Reilly.
"This has not been an easy process, and he


has taken a few hits," she said.
Reilly said in a phone interview that much
of the criticism he has received has been the
result of some confusion.
He said when members of the Orange and
Blue Party criticized him for being in favor
of the new codes even
before some of the more
questionable clauses had
been amended, they were
.. probably referring to a
7 different version of the
codes, which he said were
S constantly evolving.
Orange and Blue Party
Reilly President Sam Miorelli
said he disagrees with Reilly's characteriza-
tion of his party's criticism and said his party
knew what was going on.
"I think that this is a very disingenuous
and, in fact, insulting suggestion that those of
us who disagreed with these regulations were
just poor, confused dullards," Miorelli said.
Although they may disagree on the pro-
cess'that led to the version passed by the
board, both Reilly and Miorelli said they are
satisfied with the final product.


Board to find new chancellor


BOARD, from page 1


The money in the PECO fund comes
primarily from the sales of bonds,
which is tied into the gross receipts
tax on utilities. If the amount of money
from this tax increases, then proceeds
from the sales of bonds will be greater,
and the PECO fund will grow.
This year, utility costs have gone
up around the state, so the amount of
money from the tax and thus the size
of the PECO fund should grow, said
Ed Poppell, UF's vice president for busi-
ness affairs.
In anticipation of the increase in
PECO funding, UF is requesting about
$145.8 million from 2009-2012 the
highest of the requests according
to a spreadsheet summarizing each
university's priorities.
UF's first PECO request for 2009-
2010 is for $15 million to keep current
UF facilities up and running.
After that, UF is asking for $22.5 mil-
lion to build a chemistry and chemical
biology building.
Poppell said this building would
provide more labs and general space for
the chemistry program.


Poppell said UF received PECO
funding last year to begin planning
the building, which may be completed
around January 2011.
He said UF also hopes to receive
initial planning money for a water, land
and plant resources building, which
would bring current faculty members
working on this type of research and
place them under one new roof.
The board will also plan for a new
chancellor.
U F Rosenberg,
Adminlslratlton who led the
board since
2005, said Monday that he will resign in
February. He plans to join the faculty of
Florida International University, where
he served as provost and executive vice
president for academic affairs for more
than seven years.
Bill Edmonds, the board's spokes-
man, said he could not imagine the
board not discussing what he called
the "unexpected issue" of Rosenberg's
resignation.
"I think that will probably be the key
question," Edmonds said. "How will
they do the search, and is there enough
time to get it accomplished before
Chancellor Rosenberg leaves."

Going green is new trend

JORDANA FYNE AVENUE WRITER


The green movement is spread-
ing through America like a forest
fire. Even in the celebrity world,
green seems to be the new pink.
When M6tley Criie drumuner
Tommy Lee called up his buddy
Johnny Colt and told him he's
doing this new reality show about
"going green," Colt nearly fell out
of his chair laughing.
"I told him, 'If you're going
green on camera, of course I'm
in,'" Colt said. "I want to have the
best seat in the house."
Colt, former bassist for The
Black Crowes and current bassist
for Train, jumped on the green
bandwagon as a member of the
Discovery Company's reality show
"Battleground Earth: Ludacris vs.
Tommy Lee," which airs on Planet
Green at 10 p.m. on Sunday.
Tune in to the "Wet and Wild"
episode to watch Tommy and
Ludacris spread the word about

vation in the ( There is r

ence by break- ber and bassist
ing a Guinness
World Record for world's largest
group shower.
But now tear your eyes away
from celebrity activities, and flip
the channel to Community 12
Television.
Not only has the eco-friendly
color leaked its way onto the red
carpet, but it's also infiltrated
Gainesville, too.
From a local public-access
studio near you, Mark Hostetler,
associate professor of wildlife ecol-
ogy and conservation, hikes up his
jeans and crouches before a stick
and block of wood, rubbing them
furiously to show how to obtain
energy without fossil fuels.
Aw, shucks he's just kid-
ding. Hostetler doesn't expect
you to go back to the Stone Age.
He just wants to help you learn to
consume energy more responsibly
on UF's IFAS Communication
Services TV series, "Living Green,"
which airs on local channel 12 at 6:
01 p.m. on Sunday.
Stylistically, the two shows are
worlds apart. "Battleground Earth"
aims to inform while entertaining,
each episode crammed with cam-
eos from the likes of Cedric the
Entertainer, Sean "Diddy" Combs,
Magic Johnson and, of course,
Pamela Anderson.
What "Living Green" lacks in
star power and record-breaking
stunts, Hostetler makes up for
with his Bill Nye-esque charm and
the allure of actual scientific fact.
Both shows have their heart in
.the right place. Sometimes people

need a push to get involved.
"I can see how it can raise
awareness if someone sees their
favorite celebrity advertising their
beliefs for a particular cause," said
UF senior Chris Garces. "If some-
one you respect believes in some-
thing, it might make you think it's
worth believing in too."
Celebrities have their place
in the process of environmental
awareness, but it's beside a long
list of others, Hostetler said.
"Changing human behavior
comes from a variety of sources
school, policy and popular
media are all important," he said.
"You still have to have research,
policies, engagement from the
builder of homes, and the public
has to demand it."
Famous faces are trendsetters
and can certainly be productive
toward a cause, said Chris Cano,
the publicity coordinator for
Gators for a
tthing more DIY Sustainable
k than getting Campus.
getting off the "People see
ntrolledbyan celebrities driv-
empany. ing Priuses and
mp now everyone
t wants a Prius,"
cast mem- 9 Cano said. "It
r Train goes for clothes
and for cars


and hopefully for going green."
Colt believes you can pick and
chose where you want to have an
impact. As a creative person, he
could never get on board with a
dinky-looking hybrid car. Instead
of trading in his Toyota FJ Cruiser
SUV, he tries to leave it home as
much as possible and get around
Atlanta on his Surly cyclocross
bike.
"I don't think of it as a green
choice but a creative choice to ride
a bicycle and stay green."
While competing as a member
of Tommy's "Ecorage" team, Colt
represented the world of rock
along with "Pimp My Ride" co-
host Dave "Diggity Dave" Aragon
and musician Nina Bergman.
"We have superior skills on all
levels," Colt said of "Ecorage."
"Rock versus rap? In the end, rock
always wins. We all know that."
Colt did concede that Ludacris
"is incredible." Besides being
fiercely competitive, Ludacris is
all about entertaining, which really
brings home the show's mission.
"Battleground Earth" is about
* delivering facts and tools people
can bring into their own lives to go
green in a way that isn't preachy.
"There is nothing more DIY
punk rock than getting solar pan-
els and getting off the grid not
being controlled by an electric
company," Colt said. "Rock and
roll is not having people tell you
what to do. What people might see
as hippy, I see as pirate, punk-rock
renegade."

Band mixes moods and grooves for an eclectic sound


ZACH SEYMOUR
AVENUE WRITER

Members of Gainesville band
Moodhosa said their sound is
hard to explain even for them.
There's a backdrop of gutty, gritty
Delta blues, hints of funk, under-
currents of reggae and a smatter-
ing of good, old-fashioned rock
'n' roA. What shapes Moodhosa's
groove is exactly what makes rock
music great: a respect for the clas-
sics, an acknowledgment of con-
temporaries and a personal touch.
When Moodhosa vocalist and
guitarist Jose Peruyero and gui-
tarist Jason Moody met two years
ago, things didn't completely click.
The musicians' short-lived jam
sessions stopped after school got
in the way. An unlikely meeting
at Zaxby's proved to be the setting
that would change all that.
Peruyero said the meeting was
like an "awkward date."
"We were both kind of like,
'Uh, I know we tried this before,
but maybe, ya know, we could try
it out again,'" he said.
Despite 'the strange circum-
stances of the meeting, the second
time around proved more success-
ful.
"We really just vibed the sec-
ond time," Peruyero said. "Our
biggest connection was the old
blues. We wanted to push back to
the roots. Those songs express sad-

ness, pain and soul that's where
we feel like it comes from."
With Peruyero needing an
outlet to write songs and Moody
crafting the melody and riffs on his
six-string, the duo began to grind
out some original material.
The first show went well for the
two, and by its second gig, the duo
had picked up steam and become


a quartet with the addition of bass-
ist David Cotton, whom Peruyero
knew through Santa Fe College's
graphic design program, and
percussionist Ari Scott, a friend of
Cotton.
Moodhosa makes music in a
way that does not acknowledge
genre. The sound of the band
stems from each member's differ-


ent musical backgrounds and their
ability, as they put it, to give each
musician complete freedom to
craft songs to his own tastes.
It's not that they want to play
a certain type of music; it's merely
all they can play. Anything else
would feel contrived, Peruyero
said.
A full-length record later,


Moodhosa continues to expand
its creativity as well as its tour-
ing territory. At the beginning of
October, the band is set to hit the
road for two weeks playing gigs
from Florida's panhandle, through
Louisiana and eventually into
Texas and back.
The band travels in a Chevy
Astro conversion van. To say this
vehicle is a stereotypical touring
vehicle would be a gross under-
statement its rusted hood and
mid-80s, box-like shape is a testa-
ment to the carefree attitude of a
band on the road. The van serves
as the band's road warrior and is
affectionately referred to as the
"Big Purple Monster."
Saturday, the Big Purple
Monster need not make a long
voyage. Moodhosa will perform
locally at Market Street Pub in the
band's last show in Gainesville for
the next few months.
The band promises a high-en-
ergy show, and members said they
pride themselves on being a band
that leaves it all on stage. The band
said Gainesville has been good to
them.
"This is what we all get off on,"
Peruyero said. "We want to feel ex-
hausted when we leave the stage.
We give it all and really pour our
emotions out there."
The doors open at 9 p.m., and
the cover charge is $6. Inca Maya,
a rock group from Jacksonville,
will open.


frtSUnuIuon the

anrbn1 avDenue


Your first date with someone is incred-
ibly important. It determines the outcome
of the relationship. They say first impres-
sions are everything, and hopefully your
first date ends well with no walk ot shame
(see-last week's article).
You've got plenty to worry about
What will you say' Will there be awk-
ward silences' Does he/she really like
me, or is he she just looking to get some
action? Freaking out is natural, but I'm
here to help a bit I can't assure that you'll
be perfectly eloquent or promise you
won't get a huge zit on the night of the
date, but I can help make sure that you
look perfect.
My note to ever one. girls and boys:
Be comfortable and be yourself That is
the most important thing Also, don't
wear anything that's hto sizes too small
- trust me, your date will notice m a bad
way.
For girls I think a dress is the safest
and most classic choice to wear on your
date. A dress ensures you look ruce. but
not too nice, while still giving the unpres-
sion that you put more than minimal ef-
fort into your outfit.
In Flonda you can pretty much always


get away with a
dress, and on those
"cold" days lust
grab a cute card-
gan
leans and a ruce shirt is another safe
bet. but I find it plain and overused If
you have an amazing butt, then go ahead
and wear the jeans You always want to
wear what look, best on you and show off
your best assets.
My tavorate outfit to see a guy in is
pants and a ruce shirt It doesn't have to
be a button-up sometimes that's a Lttle
fancy), but a nice pair of pants and a polo
comes off as classy
Some of you guys look like the ulti-
mate tool m pants and a polo, and I un-
derstand that because my brother is one
of them. In that case, wear something a
little more casual, like a graphic T-shirt
lust pick one that doesn't look like you
got it for free or you stole it from your
high school mascot.
That's my advice on your first-date
outfit. Whatever you wear, be comfort-
able and confident. Good luck with the
first date, though, with the right outfit.
you probably won't need it.


A 21st birthday


bash: lose-the sign


One of the most iconic figures in the
Gainesville bar scene is the "21st birth-
day girl." She usually comes inwith a
gaggle of girls who are borderline over-
dressed for the bar or club, and she has
always already had too much to drink.
She' is instantly recognizable with
her tiara and the "21
things to do on your
21st birthday" sign. No
I've seen signs shaped shape
like beer mugs, martini
glasses arid Playboy- they're all I
bunny logos. No mat- glitter
ter the shapes or sizes,
they're all big, pink and
glittery.
All these signs are designed for the
same purpose to put the wearer in
embarrassing Facebook photo ops and
to make sure there is never a moment
she doesn't have a glass in her hand.
Although the majority of celebra-
tory tasks are common to every birth-
day girl, even I'm amazed with the
thought some people put into their lists.
Highlights include getting a stranger to
give you his or her underwear, taking a
red-headed-slut shot with a ginger and
only introducing yourself by your strip-
per name.
Getting a free shot from the bartend-
er is a pretty standard item on the list,


rr
m
e


y


and we're almost
always willing to
comply. Asking
nicely is the only way to go; otherwise
you'll be getting whiskey warm.
The benefit of being the 21st birthday
girl is that you're not concerned with
what other people are
saying about your
latter the behavior. This- often
'S or sizes, leads to situations that
g, k causes the bar staff to
g, pink and intervene.
I've coaxed my share
JJ of drunken girls off bar
stools and pool tables
and received nothing
but bewildered stares when I told them
that with 10 or more shots in their sys-
tem, they have to keep their feet firmly
on the ground. You don't want to ring
in your 21st birthday in the emergency
room when your face meets the bar
floor.
Even if you don't plan a typical 21st
birthday extravaganza for yourself,
Gainesville tradition maintains one oth-
er part of the 21s' birthday girl equation.
Meet the "overzealous best friend."
She's the girl that's talked about her 21s'
birthday since her senior year of high
school, and if your birthday happens to
come after hers, beware.

* Gay men make good girlfriends, cock-blockers


Let me introduce myself. I'm Stephanie,
* and I'm a fag hag. But let me make a few
things dear before your mind conjures up
the image of that outspoken MAC makeup
artist who so perfectly embodies the ste-
reotype of the textbook fruit fly. I'm not
a pudgy hanger-on, and my self-esteem
is nowhere near lacking. I don't cling to
0 gay men because otherwise, I'd never get
within three feet of a penis. I'm definitely
not the kind of girl who thinks that she
* alone can turn any Britney-squealing,
homosexual man into a burly football fa-
natic. I don't brandish my gay friends like
accessories, nor do I harbor any "Sex and
the City" fantasies of being a cosmopolitan
surrounded by sophisticated sodomites.
Somehow, I just always found myself sur-
rounded by gay guys and never thought
much of it until everybody started asking

me why.
I'll tell you what my title does entail.
Being a fag hag means that at the end of
the night, I will be driving myself home be-
cause the guy who professes his undying
loyalty to me while delicately waving the
first cosmotini of the night will drop my
ass for some twink with a Spanish name
and a tight T-shirt after another fruity
concoction.
I'm the girl who parents hang their last
hope on as they ask how my last date with
their son went and when we plan on mov-
ing in together. When these same parents
find a copy of "Guys Gone Wild" in their
son's top drawer, I hang my head and ad-
mit to having a thing for gay porn, despite
the fact that I didn't even know "Guys
Gone Wild" existed. That's not to say my
sacrifices are not reciprocated. I reap plenty

of fruits from my friendships, and even
more friendships from my fruits that
was an inexcusable pun, and I sincerely
apologize.
I never ask for fashion advice. That
would be not only a gag-inducing cliche
but also a waste of time. No gay guy wants
to talk about what you're wearing any
more than you want to talk about what
he's wearing.
I know that when he says, "Come to
my room, I want to show you something,"
it means I'll probably be analyzing a text
from the aforementioned Spanish boy and
not sitting in rigid silence while some guy
tries to get me to "lay down, you look sooo
uncomfortable." I love gay men because
they're, well, men. And I love men. If a guy
goes behind your back, your gay friend is
the first to get protective by spitting on him
while screeching, "Take your man tits to
your little whore, you whore!"

They change tires and fix computers.
As men, they still have that uncanny knack
for being heartlessly honest, like when
they tear your bangs off your forehead
and say, "Wow, you really are breaking
out! Are you stressed or on your period?"
When you don't feel like being a minx,
you have a makeshift boyfriend as long
as the guy hitting on you doesn't notice
his cinched, pin-striped vest and Dolce &
Gabbana necklace. Your actual boyfriend
doesn't get jealous of the fact that you have
virtually no female friends. In front ofmiy
gay friends, I can let my hair hang in the
toilet water while I puke in my stale, night-
before clothes looking like a bruised and
broken hooker this coming from the girl
who refuses to go to Publix in sweatpants
just in case she runs into a sex partner past,
present, future or imagined. I never would
have thought I'd learn the most about sex
from the people I'll never have sex with.

Freshman Jenkins continues to impress in backfield


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
S bsteele@alligator.org

Before the game at Tennessee,
freshman cornerback Janoris
Jenkins was asking roommate
and fellow corner Joe Haden
more questions than usual.
The best advice Haden could
give was that "it's going to be
loud, and (the fans) aren't going
to be rooting for us."
Whatever Haden said, it
worked. On Tennessee's fourth
play of the game, Jenkins forced
a fumble that led to the Gators
taking a 10-0 lead.
Then he came away with an
interception right before halftime
that prevented the Volunteers
from at least taking some mo-
mentum into the break. Instead,
Jenkins' pick caused the jeers at
Neyland Stadium to start to rain
down even harder.
Now, Jenkins is competing
for a starting spot with Wondy
Pierre-Louis.
"He knows he's a good cor-
ner," Haden said. "He's been
covering people since he started
playing football. You have to
know you're good at cornerback.


If you don't, then you're going to
get beat all the time."
Jenkins might know he's
good, but most good players
don't do what he did in their first
Southeastern Conference game.
Jenkins is starting to prove he
,is not most players.
"He's ahead of
J me," said Haden,
Comparing his
-- -"l freshman year to
Football Jenkins' year so
far. "He's way
ahead of me."
Considering Haden received
the praise of coach Urban Meyer
constantly last year, that's a sig-
nificant compliment.
When asked if he thought he'd
play this much this early, Jenkins
replied simply, "Not really."
"The thing about him is, he
has no fear," defensive coordina-
tor Charlie Strong said.
Jenkins said enrolling at UF in
the spring helped him catch on
quickly. At first he said he didn't
know the plays, but then Haden,
Pierre-Louis and company ham-
mered them into his head.
"He's just leading me like a

Top nine Gators sports topics


This week, Phil on the Hill will
be taking a slightly different
approach.
In blistering fashion basically,
nothing like an actual baseball game
- nine names or games from the
wide world of UF sports will get
their flipping facts finagled from the
Phil point of view.
Hold on to your hat sort of.
Batting leadoff this week, the
ever-popular Tim Tebow. Great guy,
great team leader, great "manager of
the game," as he's now commonly
called. But no Heisman in 2008. At
this point last year, the indestruc-
tible man had 13 touchdowns. So far
he has only five, all of them passing.
Yes, the No. 4 Gators are better off
because of it. Will he have a huge
Heisman-esque moment at some
point this year? Probably. (Ahem,


Georgia and LSU,
look out). But one
game won't make
the difference.
Numbers two
through four are
Phil Kegler Hawaii, Miami
Phil on the Hill and Tennessee.
pkegler@alligator.org Thanks for show-
ing us nearly
nothing about the Gators. It's hard
for the defense not to look bet-
ter when it's coming off a dismal
season. And yes, the Warriors,
Hurricanes and Volunteers of 2008
as a whole are better than last year's
opening opponents, which UF beat
by a combined score of 167-54. But
remember how good UF fans felt
after a 59-20 drubbing of Tennessee

Defensive players probable


* JERMAINE CUNNINGHAM AND RYAN
STAMPER ARE EXPECTED TO PLAY.

By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Staff Writer
edrexler@alligator.nrg

UF defensive end Jermaine Cunningham
practiced Wednesday after missing all of
Tuesday's practice with a hyperextended knee.
Gators coach Urban Meyer said he expects
the junior to play in Saturday's game against
Mississippi.
Junior linebacker Ryan Stamper did not
practice again on Wednesday. A sprained ankle
has kept him sidelined, though Meyer believes
Stamper should also be ready for Saturday.
"He was out there, he was doing his steps
and everything," Meyer said. "He's a tough
nut. I'm thinking they both should be ready, I'm
hoping."
BACKUP BLUES: UF quarterback Tim Tebow
took every snap for the Gators against Miami
and Tennessee, but Meyer wants to get his
backups more involved against the Rebels.


Sophomore Cameron Newton is still
banged up with an ankle sprain, and Meyer
said that affects his mobility.
"Cameron's gimped up a little bit," Meyer
said. "He's not right. He obviously can't per-
Sform, because a big part of his
game is moving around."
Redshirt freshman John
Brantley, on the other hand,
looks good to get some
snaps. Meyer said he would
like Brantley to play in the
game, though he does not
Cunningham have a specific time he wants
Brantley to go in.
NO TIME FOR YOUTH: Along with the backup
quarterbacks not seeing much time on the
field, Meyer admitted he's upset the freshmen
are not getting chances to shine.
"It's probably something I've got to do a
better job of, getting guys in the game," Meyer
said.
ETC: Meyer said freshman cornerback Jeremy
Brown is a "redshirt candidate" because of
a significant back injury and added Brown
would likely be playing if not for the injury.

UF VOLLEYBALL

Gators work to overcome injuries, build chemistry


By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

With six freshmen on this
year's roster, the No. 11 Gators
(8-1, 2-0 Southeastern Conference)
have had to build the chemistry
between their young talent and
veteran players.
It would be hard enough to
gel two freshman setters (Ciindy
Bathelt and Kelly Murphy) with
tyo experienced middle block-
ers (Kelsey Bowers and Kristina
Johnson) without any additional
obstacles.
However, the two middles have
missed out on a lot of practice time
due to injury, which has slowed
the acclimation process.
"It was definitely difficult the
first couple matches," Bathelt said.


"But I think we're starting to get
more of a rhythm."
Bowers has been slowed by a
back injury that hasn't improved
much since she first hurt it over the
summer. As a result, the senior has
seen limited action and has rarely
been used in back-to-back games.
Similarly, Johnson has experi-
enced soreness in her knee after
tearing her ACLlast season, which
limited her action in UF's only loss
this season against Colorado State.
Heading into this weekend's
games at Arkansas on Friday and
at Mississippi on Sunday, coach
Mary Wise expressed concerns
that Johnson's knee might not be
able to handle flying on this road
trip.
The situation becomes more
complicated because both play-.


ers are cleared to play as long as
they are physically ready some-
thing Wise doesn't find out until
the morning of their practices or
matches.
"We see signs of improve-
ment, and it's been a really
good week for Kelsey Bow-
ers. But then again, today
Kristina Johnson won't
jump."
Cindy Bathelt
UF freshman setter

"We see signs of improvement,
and it's been a really good week
for Kelsey Bowers. But then again,
today Kristina Johnson won't
jump," she said. "It's a revolving


door, good news then bad news."
The good news for the Gators
offense is that nine games into the
season, the setters are now becom-
ing comfortable with the middle
blockers despite their lack of prac-
tice time together.
"Even if Kelsey can't get as
many reps, we make the reps qual-
ity," Bathelt said.
While it may not be the best
time to figure out your teammates,
the experiences they are gaining in
matches are replacing the repeti-
tions lost in practice.
Bathelt said she learned some-
thing about each of her middles
quickly and had to make an ad-
justment in her game.
"K.J. jumps really high,. and
Kelsey is really fast," she said.
Tuesday's practice was largely


devoted to getting the middle
blockers more action, and Wise
said she thinks the team hbs-per-
formed well in recent matches.
"We are doing a better job of
getting point production out of
our middle blockers, serving bet-
ter and we're definitely blocking
better," she said.
If -Bowers and Johnson aren't
able to stay healthy throughout
the season, the Gators will lose
something a lot more valuable
than kills or blocks they will
lose experience.
The duo constitutes half of
the upperclassmen on UF's ros-
ter and, along with junior libero
Elyse Cusack and senior defensive
specialist Christina Diaz, provides
much of the leadership needed on
a contending team.


Wise explains Williams' transfer to Central Florida


* THE FORMER UF PLAYER WANTED
MORE PLAYING TIME.

By MIKE DIFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

All Janine Williams wanted was a chance
to play.
She decided that opportunity wasn't go-
ing to come at UF.
In August, the former UF outside hitter
transferred to Central Florida.


Williams, whose father Keith played
football for the Gators, first talked to UF
coach Mary Wise about a possible transfer
last spring.
"Her decision, she felt, was the best for
her in terms of playing time," Wise said.
Williams, a former All-American from
Gainesville's P.K. Yonge, signed to play
for the Gators along with teammate Elyse
Cusack.
But while Cusack's career took her onto
the court and into the record books, Williams
was forced to watch from the sideline.
She redshirted as a freshman in 2006 after


a knee injury.
Williams played sparingly the following
year but was one of the
S team's strongest perform-
ers off the bench.
She racked up 72 kills
and 13 service aces in lim-
ited time.
Williams has hit the
ground running since her
arrival in Orlando.
Williams She has worked her
way into the starting rotation and is produc-
ing the numbers she expected to coming out


of high school.
Through the Knights' first 14 games,
Williams is second on the team in kills
(170) and averaging more than three per set
- success that doesn't surprise Wise. The
Knights are off to a 9-5 start this season.
"We're hoping that she's the conference
player of the year and that she continues to
have a great career," Wise said.
Regardless, she will have a team full of
friends back in Gainesville cheering for her.
"The players on the team are still very
close to her," Wise said.
"She has support here."

Elliott looks to get more involved


* THE JUNIOR HAS STEPPED
UP HER CONDITIONING.

By BOBBY CALLOVI
Alligator Writer
bcallovi@alligator.org

Ashlee Elliott is not a fan of hard
conditioning, but it will be crucial
if she is to be more assertive on of-
fenser"
UF coach Becky Burleigh told
her during Sunday's match against
Kansas to be more aggressive and
get involved with the offense.
It immediately paid off, as Elliott
scored both goals in the Gators' 2-1
victory.
Although Burleigh wants to see
Elliott stay busy on offense, Elliott
is still a defensive midfielder and
needs to be able to get back quickly.
That's where the hard condition-
ing comes in.
"After a while (the constant
movement) could affect me, espe-
cially during the first half, cause I'm
not allowed to get subbed," Elliott
said.
On the few occasions she does
get some breaks in the second half,
they tend to be short-lived. She


leads all midfielders in minutes
played with 645, good for third on
the team behind defenders Caitlin
Howard and Jazmyne Avant.
Her conditioning is important
to her staying on the field, and she
stayed in Gainesville for summer A
and B training sessions just to work
on her endurance..


I1 take my lead-
ership a lot more
seriously than I did
last year," she said.


V.owA.I "I have to bring a
lot of leadership, so
when I do slack on my conditioning,
everyone sees that and that's not a
good leadership quality."
While the team is starting to
come together more, there are still
areas UF must improve to be a
championship-caliber team.
"To this day, we are still getting
comfortable with each other. We're
still trying to communicate, we're
still not fully set on trusting each
other," Elliott said. "Even though
we trust each other as friends, on
the field you don't want to pass it
to that person because you don't
want to get them in trouble or vice
versa."


These issues have caused Elliott
to stay back on defense early in the
season.
As the season progresses and she
gains more trust in the young de-
fense, Elliott expects to get involved
in offensive attacks more and more.
Having her in the box could
bring a new dynamic to the offense,
as she is one of the taller, more
physically gifted players.
"Ashlee is a player that when she
decides to impose herself physically
on teams, there are very, very few
teams that can stop her from doing
that," Burleigh said. "She has that
ability that no one else has."
She will have extra incentive to
score this weekend with her parents
making the trip from California. She
credited her second goal Sunday to
her mom, who told her before the
match to "take a shot."
The Gators can expect plenty of
advice from Elliott's mom during
Friday's game against Georgia, and
who knows, maybe it will pay off
again for the team.
"You're going to be-hearing her
telling me to go forward, go for-
ward, go forward, and not only me
but everyone else," Elliott said.


Young cornerback still prone to mistakes


JENKINS, from page 22


big brother," Jenkins said of Haden.
Like with any little brother, however, there are times
you have to stare him down after he does something
that v n't according to the plan.
Jeni.s had a pass interference penalty in the third
quarter against the Volunteers. Meyer said he "jumped
(Jenkins') tail" after that.
"He's a very talented guy who still at times is im-
mature," Meyer said. "He's one of those guys with very


good ball skills. He could play receiver for us. He's very
good with the ball in his hand."
..i After his interception, Jenkins
tried to run it out of the end zone,
which ended up not being the smart-
Sest decision as he only got three
yards.
"Major (Wright) was trying to
tackle him, but he couldn't catch
Haden him," Haden said.
At least Jenkins has been good at catching opposing
receivers so far.


PHIL, from page 22

a year ago?
In the No. 5 spot, the mystery of the Gators offense.
All the explaining is becoming tiresome. Yes, the clock
rules affect the number of plays and possessions. The
Gators had 17 plays of 20 yards or more through the
first three games last season. This season? Eleven. Not
a big difference, and certainly the 3-0 record is all Urban
Meyer is worried about. But UF's offense strikes fear into
defensive coordinators right now because of its potential,
not recent results.
Our No. 6 hitter is Les Miles. This man is an example
of the great, crazy passions of college football. Love him
or hate him, he rolls the dice more than any sane man
would. Will the time come when the odds catch up to
him? Most likely. Still, LSU is one of the most exciting
teams to watch recently, and Miles has a lot to do with
it. Anything is possible when you show your team you
believe nothing is impossible for it.
Hitting seventh is another passion-fueling part of
college football trash talk. Coaches and school media
officials hate it. Media thrive on it. Fans love it. Everyone
will agree rivalries are a much bigger deal at the college
level. Coaches will never like giving the other team bul-
letin-board material. But Louis Murphy and Brandon
Spikes made the weeks leading up to the Miami and
Tennessee games interesting (certainly more interesting
than the games themselves).
Now, moving the spotlight to some smaller sports,
the eighth spot goes to the No. 16 Gators soccer team,
which opens up Southeastern Conference play this week-
end. Praise goes to coach Becky Burleigh for her tough
nonconference scheduling. You have to think UF will
be ready for anything the league presents after having
already scuffled with No. 4 Florida State, No. 5 Portland,
No. 18 Illinois and No. 25 Kansas. Maybe the SEC isn't
as tough in soccer as football, but imagine if the football
team had to push through a slate of games like that.
Pulling up the rear in the ninth spot, the No. 11 UF
volleyball team. Rest assured, all you volleyball nuts, the
Gators will take home their 18th consecutive conference
title this season. Yeah, the term "volleyball nut" probably
doesn't refer to most of you, but this is definitely one of
the most consistent teams on campus.
But the past precedent will also continue in the post-
season as well expect a second-round exit for these
young Gators in the NCAA Tournament.
