Board to vote



on funds for UF

By DEBORAH SWERDLOW

TAMPA UF may have
found another way to jump-
start stalled construction proj-
ects after some members of the
Board of Governors expressed
support Thursday for giving
universities greater flexibility
in using state money.
However, not every board
member supports the plan,
which would allow Florida's
11 public universities to ask
for the board's permission to
use Public Education Capital
Outlay, or PECO, funds to fi-
nance projects that have been
delayed by cuts to the Courtelis
state matching funds program.
As a compromise, the
board, which met for almost
seven hours at the University of
South Florida, asked a UF-led
group to develop a proposal


that would allow this new pro-
cedure for only a year.
The board plans to vote on
the proposal in November.
"I'm saying, 'Stick with
the freshman cap.'"
Mark Rosenberg
chancellor of the board

If the board passes the
proposal, the state Legislature
would need to approve it be-
fore the universities could use
this new process. That decision
will be final at the end of the
session in May.
In November, the board also
plans to vote on whether to
remove the freeze on freshman
enrollment, which has been in
place since July 2007.

Group petitions center


* JACKSONVILLE GROUP WANTS AU-
TISM CENTER OUT OF UF'S CONTROL.

By DAVID CUMMING
Alligator Contributing Writer

An online petition pushing for UF's
Center for Autism and Related Disabilities,
or CARD, in Jacksonville to be reassigned
to another university has gained momen-
tun this week.
The petition, which gained about 190
signatures Thursday night, seeks to yield
control of the center from UF's College of
Medicine in Jacksonville to the University
of North Florida, following financial stum-
bles and a push for local oversight.
The center, funded by the Florida
Department of Education, serves about
1,900 patients and was established in 1993.
It is one of seven regional centers of its
kind in the state, according to its UF Web
site.

has a new Web
site just for its
blogs!

Alligatorblogs.org
for extended
coverage of UF
and Gainesville.


Mark Hudak, the associate chairman
for pediatrics at UF's College of Medicine
in Jacksonville, said in a phone interview
that UF officials are ready to talk with the
petition's supporters even though UNF has
not been lobbying to take the program.
"There are definite advantages in
keeping it with
U F UF," Hudak said.
Administration "Efficiency and
quality will be lost
if you separate CARD between different
areas."
He said the college shares the center's
resources with Jacksonville-area pediatric
centers. Also, he said if a patient with mul-
tiple disabilities has to use more than one
center for treatment, it's more efficient for
all the services to be under the umbrella
of UF.
But some of the supporters of the peti-
tion, which was reported by The Florida

Party releases platform


State seeks counties' help

Voter registrations flood department


* GATOR PARTY SAYS IT WILL
FOCUS ON TANGIBLE RESULTS.

By LAUREN BAKER
Alligator Writer
Ibaker@alligator.org

The Gator Party released its
platform Thursday, featuring plans
to improve UF's environmental ef-
forts and student representation
and safety.
Other initiatives deal with lob-
bying on behalf of students to pro-
tect the Bright Futures Scholarship
Program and streaming live video
of Student Senate meetings.
Another platform point is posting
a crossing guard at the crosswalks
outside the Reitz Union and Hume
Hall on Museum Road, according to
the party's release.
"We've always tried to develop
our platform as serving the inter-
ests of the students," said Michael
Hoffman, Gator Party spokesman.
Hoffman said two hot topics will
likely be student representation and
environmental consciousness, but
he could not label certain platform


points as more important.
"Each and every one is sort of our
collective baby," Hoffman said.
The platform points include
having input in the upcoming ex-
pansion of the Reitz Union, such
as adding a dry cleaner and a video
rental store.
The Gator Party also plans to back
"soft closings," which would require
bars in downtown Gainesville to re-
main open after
Studrentent they stop serving
alcohol. Hoffman
said this would
give patrons a chance to sober up
before heading home.
The party also plans to make
campus more bicyclist-friendly and
set up a sports kiosk, which would
include equipment that students
could rent with a Gator 1 Card, such
as Frisbees, Hoffman said.
"Our big thing, our slogan, is
tangible results," he said. "Physical
things that people can point to
and say, 'That's what Student
Government's done for me."'
The platform hasn't been posted
on the party's Web site, which can
be found at www.gogatorparty.com.

Some Florida counties have been unsym-
pathetic to a plea from the state's Bureau of
Voter Registration Services asking for help
to process voter applications, but Alachua
County accepted the challenge.
The bureau sent out an e-mail Wednesday
asking county supervisors of elections to
help process its voter applications, which
have been increasing as the Oct. 6 registra-
tion deadline approaches, said Jennifer Krell
Davis, spokeswoman for the Secretary of
State.
Pam Carpenter, Alachua County super-
visor of elections, said Alachua County has
taken on 200 applications from the state but
that they have about 800 to do on their own.
"We here in Alachua County certainly
have a tremendous workload ourselves,"
Carpenter said. "When the division sends
us extra applications, we have to work those
into our workloads."
More stringent state requirements to
check applications with Social Security or
driver's license information have also taken
extra time, she said. If applications don't
match, the state sends them back to be dou-
ble-checked.
The 11 employees of the office have al-
ready been working on Saturdays, she said,
and 15 part-time employees are helping out.
Still, she said, "It's all doable."


The state office received more than 25,000
voter applications Monday and Tuesday and
is averaging between 5,000 and 10,000 a day,
Davis said. The state hired 25 part-time em-
ployees to help with the applications.
While most counties accepted the pro-
posal, a few have refused, she said, saying
the workload is simply too much.
Davis said the state didn't think the re-
quest was much of an imposition.
"Once you spread it
around 67 counties, we're
talking about 200 to 400
applications per location,"
she said.
-. Carpenter said she
thought it would have
been better if the e-mail
Carpenter had warned how many
applications were coming.
"It's the anticipation of, are you going to
get one, or are you going to get a thousand,"
she said.
Since the registration date closed for the
August primary election, Carpenter said the
county has registered 9,000 people to vote.
While 144,174 people are now registered
to vote in the county, she expects 150,000 to be
registered in time to vote in the presidential
election, she said.
The numbers are similar to previous presi-
dential elections, she said.
"It does get very busy every four years,"
she said.

City sells lightbulbs


for regional rivalry


By TATIANA GONZALEZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

Add compact fluorescent
light bulb purchases to the Gator-
Seminole rivalry.
The energy-efficient lightbulbs
will be available for $1 throughout
Gainesville until Tuesday as part of
the yearlong energy-conservation
challenge between Tallahassee and
Gainesville.
Gainesville is ahead in the
categories of solar panels and hot
water converters, but Tallahassee is
in the lead for insulation and light-
bulb purchases, Gainesville Mayor
Pegeen Hanrahan said.
For the past year, Gainesville and
Tallahassee have been comparing
the amount of energy saved from
the programs at the end of each
business quarter, she said.
The contest ends Tuesday with
the end of the fiscal year.


Hanrahan said she and
Tallahassee Mayor John Marks have
previously competed in similar chal-
lenges, such as voter registration.
"We've had a four-year winning
streak with Tallahassee," Mayor
Pegeen Hanrahan said. "We want to

UF's Office of

ing the event
with Gainesville

to distribute
50,000 lightbulbs


They can be purchased today
at any local Publix from 4 p.m.
to 7 p.m. or at the Ole Miss.game
Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
GRU will announce the overall
winner at halftime during the UF-
Florida State football game Nov. 29.


Members petition Facebook


By ANKITA RAO
Alligator Contributing Writer

Facebook's redesign is causing a commotion.
Groups petitioning to return to the status quo
have attracted millions of members. Annoyed
members of the online social network have
replaced their profile pictures with "I am on
Facebook hiatus. If you wish to reach me please
use e-mail or telephone."
The new design features separate tabbed
pages for photos, wall commentary and profiles
instead of a one-shot look at all of the elements.
"I liked it when it was simple," said James,
Snedaker, a UF finance senior. "I think there's too
much going on so many buttons."
Gary Ritzenthaler, a UF online media re-
searcher, said the response to the new design is
not unique to Facebook. He said he supports the
newest version, though he finds some of the fea-
tures to be less intuitive.
"I'd like to know exactly how many people are
unhappy," Ritzenthaler said. "How much of this
is just because it is new?"
One group called "1,000,000 AGAINST THE


NEW FACEBOOK LAYOUT!" had exceeded 2.6
million by Thursday night.
The group's page includes a link to an online
petition, as well as an alternative social network-
ing site.
"I'd like to know exactly how many
people are unhappy. How much of
this is just because it is new?"
Gary Ritzenthaler
UF online media researcher

On Sept. 18, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg
issued a statement on The Facebook Blog defend-
ing the newest revamp.
"Many people disliked News Feed at first be-
cause it changed their home page and how they
shared information," he wrote. "Now it's one of
the most important parts of Facebook. We think
the new design can have the same effect."
Snedaker said he liked the first set of updates
with notifications that informed users about
events, wall posts and photos but said he would
prefer to let users choose their Facebook design.

Editorial
Here we are at the end of a strange week for both
our city and our nation. On the national level, we saw
Wall Street get bailed out a few more times and saw the
Republican presidential candidate tuck his tail between
his legs in fear and cock his puppy-dog head to the side
in confusion. We know, Uncle Johnny, the ecomony or
however you say it is pwetty complicated.
Locally, we had the privilege of seeing the Libertarian
candidate, Bob Barr, in all his sea-dog-mustache glory. We
also heard about the faux ninja who stood off against the
police, armed only with a sword. You have to appreciate
the juxtaposition of ninjas and pirates in our little com-
munity.
Now that we're closing out this take-it-as-you-will
Rorschach test of a week, we figured we'd bless your
weekend with our weekly dose of ...



Darts & Laurels

To lead off, we'd like to shoot a get-your-hand-outta-,
my-face-and-just-mind-your-business DART at college
admissions officers for using students' Facebook profiles
to help decide whether a particular student is right for a
school.
Isn't there a saying about judging a book by its cover?
Who's to say someone didn't hack our profiles the day
after we submitted our applications? How do you know
our sadistic friend didn't Photoshop the twig and berries
on our foreheads?
The point is, there's no way to know. Unless you're
going to accept us out of pity because you saw we went
from "in a relationship" to "single," then stop stalking us.
Just because we own a funnel doesn't mean we don't own
books.
Next in line, we have a did-you-mean-to-do-this-or-is-
Bill-Engvall-going-to-give-you-a-sign LAUREL to a man
with an outstanding warrant who called police to turn
himself in and decided to help clean up the streets in the
process.
Let's make sure we get this right you violated your
parole and knew you were going down, so you decided
to help out and take someone else down with you. Now
that's what we call selflessness in the face of adversity.
You're better than us, Hancock.
Speaking of crime, next we're going to make it rain a
bunch of little all-we-need-is-love DARTS on the recent
weird crime wave affecting Gainesville. We've seen more
samurai swords, price gouging, fraud and burglary than
Detroit.
Last time we checked; we don't need to be this shady
or mad. It's football season; the weather is cooling down;
and, thankfully, it will never snow. People in Detroit are
expected to be angry the Tigers are bad; the Lions are
embarrassing; and the economy can't be helping the city's
auto industry. When all you have to look forward to is the
return of the Red Wings, you almost have a valid excuse
for mugging someone.
Now we'd like to bestow a we've-got-a-whole-univer-
sity-to-protect-so-buy-your-own-bodyguard LAUREL to
the Gainesville Police for finally deciding to make high-
profile visitors foot the bill for their personal security.
Gainesville and UF both have enough on their plates
without worrying about whether Bob Barr is going to trav-
el safely. Maybe if he didn't trim his "V for Vendetta" mus-
tache ever-so-creepily, he wouldn't get so many strange
looks as he romps through a small Florida town.
That'll do for this week. Have a safe weekend. Go
Gators.

Guest column

Politics as usual makes '08 look like '68


Since 1966, the Republican Party has been held together
by a tripod of issues and standpoints: foreign policy, eco-
nomic and fiscal conservatism and the creation of cultural
resentment. Today, its case for the presidency has been
whittled down to one argument.
Republicans' credibility on foreign policy ended the day
Fallujah blew up in 2004, and consequently, the Bush War
PR machine fell apart.
Republicans praise the god of deregulation, tax cuts
and free markets. However, what remain of the Republican
economic credentials have been shredded in the last week
as a result of huge government bailouts of the Wall Street
financial industry.
As an American taxpayer, you will ultimately foot the
bill.
Republicans' worst nightmare, socialism, has been ful-
filled by their ignorance, incompetence and greed.
This leaves us with Sen. John McCain and the
Republicans resorting to their last viable option to take the
White House this year. Their plan is to play off voters' fears,
stirring up cultural and racial resentment to divide and con-
quer. This disheartening show was nowhere more apparent
than at the Republican National Convention where they
showcased their best and brightest. Rudy Giuliani, Alaska
Gov. Sarah Palin and Mitt Romney let the slander fly, distin-
guishing small town from uptown and elitist from decent.
The use of language is key to this year's election. The
names are different than in years past, but the consequences
are the same.
During the Cold War, you labeled someorfe a communist
to discredit an opponent. Now, the race and sexism cards
are charged to distract from the dialogue that needs to be
taking place.
While Romney (Mormotron 5000) and McCain were
praising the wisdom of the late President Reagan during
the Republican primary, what they weren't mentioning was
another genius of the Republican legacy.


Anthony Paglino Perfected by Richard Nixon,
Speaking Out positive polarization was used to
divide the electorate over values
during the 1960s. Using this tac-
tic, Nixon rose to the highest office in the land in 1968.
He played on people's cultural resentment and fears.
He capitalized off the "silent majority." He found that the
politics of culture could overcome the politics of econom-
ics. He relied on division and did not reach out to other
constituencies.
This is where '08 looks like '68 politics over policy.
Right now, this country cannot afford that, both literally
and figuratively.
McCain made a weak attempt at trying to gain inroads
outside his divided constituency. Choosing Palin as his run-
ning mate was a transparent political ploy to unite his party
and try to gain women's votes.
That is not how to build a coalition. Showing people it is
in their best economic interest to vote for competency and
intelligence is how a working majority is established.
A united country is a prerequisite for any sort of com-
prehensive solution to our foreign policy woes, lack of
affordable health care, energy dependence and economic
instability.
The same old story is playing itself out again this elec-
tion year. Hopefully, this time it will have a different end-
ing: an ending where honesty, intelligence and accountabil-
ity trump politics.
Learning from past mistakes is the only way to progress.
As a nation, America must learn from the mistakes that
were made a generation ago.
The majority of Americans are ready to move past these
superficial divisions and elect a president who can lead
them there. We deserve better than this. We are better than
this.

Guest column

Stewart's success with 'The Daily Show' will leave with Bush


Significant amount of politically inter-
ested students at Brown University, if
ot the majority, are fans of "The Daily
Show with Jon Stewart." The show features
comedian and author Jon Stewart anchoring
a joke-ridden "fake news" show.
While the show may provide some laughs
for its viewers, it is ultimately dangerous and
misleading. Fortunately for civil society, "The
Daily Show" has a limited future.
The show's politically driven focus began
with Stewart. He launched his "Indecision
2000" campaign to highlight the Florida
recount controversy involving candidates
George W. Bush and Al Gore and has since


used the show as a jeering vehicle to attack
President Bush.
Throughout the course of his nine-year
tenure as the show's host, Stewart has taunt-
ed various members of the Bush administra-
tion. The show's structure makes it painfully
evident that once President Bush leaves of-
fice, the show's future will leave with him.
I presume "The Daily Show" viewers
probably lean left and will stop tuning into
the show when President Bush fades from
power and Stewart runs out of fodder.
What will Stewart talk about after the 2008
election? While he can still poke fun at John
McCain, he will have to be more restrained if


Anish Mitra he wants to get away
U-Wire with mocking a former
prisoner of war and
current senior citizen.
On the flipside, if Sen. Barack Obama
claims victory in November, Stewart will
have a tough time mocking his viewership's
idol.
Stewart has more serious problems than
an inevitable lack of material. His show has
also failed to live up to its own contradictory
principles. While he claims to run a "fake
news" show, albeit a "reality-based" one, he
rarely avoids talking about real events.
Stewart has packaged his snarky style and


markets it as cool and hip on his television
show.
According to data collected by Nielsen
Media Research during the 2004 presidential
election, "The Daily Show" received more
male viewers in the 18- to 34-year-old age
demographic than "Nightline," "Meet the
Press," "Hannity & Colmes" and each of the
evening news broadcasts.
As the most important election of our time
approaches, I am afraid that young people.
nationwide will do the "cool" thing at the
voting booth instead of what is right.

University.

UF Muslim groups host Ramadan meal on campus


By KASEY ROBERTS
Alligator Contributing Writer

The scent of steaming chicken and rice
filled the air Thursday night as about 200
people gathered in the O'Connell Center for
Iftar, a nightly meal to break fast during the
Islamic holy month of Ramadan.
During Ramadan, which will last
through the end of September this year,
-Muslims don't eat or drink from sunrise to
sunset.
Jonathan Bull, vice president of external
affairs for Islam on Campus, said dinner is
served every night of Ramadan at mosques
in Gainesville to provide food for the local
fasting community.
Different people sponsor and fund these
meals each night, Bull said.
This year, the Pakistani Students'
Association and Islam on Campus teamed
up to host the Iftar at UF, which was the
groups' way of doing what the mosques do
on a nightly basis, Bull said.
"When you feed someone who's been
fasting, the reward is great," he said.
The event opened at 7:30 p.m. with
prayer on. the main floor of the O'Connell
Center. After about 10 minutes of prayer,
people filed into the martial arts room for a
buffet catered by Chutnees.
As students dug into chicken, yellow
rice, flatbread and cake, they listened to a

"We must remove pollution and dirt
from our hearts and renew our faith,"
Mubarak said.
The last 10 days of Ramadan are the "the
best of the best" because it is a time when all
sins can be forgiven, he said.
Salman Bukhari, a UF graduate student,
spoke about the importance of looking past
cultural differences of Muslims growing up
in different countries and to focus on the
religion they share.
"Just like Muslims everywhere,
Pakistanis celebrate this holy month with
religious fervor," Bukhari said.
Gohar Majeed, president of the
Pakistani Students' Association, said
student organizations such as the Indian
Student Association, Bangladeshi Student
Association, Student Government and
Volunteers for International Student Affairs
were invited to attend the Iftar to celebrate
the Ramadan's approaching end.
Majeed said he wanted everyone at the
event to see how the Pakistani Students'
Association is involved culturally and reli-
giously.
"A lot of people think Pakistan is a place
of extremists," he said. "We're not some
hard-line country."
Ramadan will end when a new moon ap-
pears, Majeed said, which is set to happen at
the end of September.

UPD investigates officer


* TITUSVILLE POLICE OFFICER MAY
HAVE STALKED UF STUDENT.

By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Staff Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org

A Titusville police officer is being
'investigated by University Police on
charges of stalking a UF student.
According to UPD investigations,
Adam Paul Treinen, an officer of the
Titusville Police Department, may have
used unauthorized police resources to
conduct searches on the 26-year-old stu-
dent, a complaint affidavit stated.
Treinen, 25, has a child with the stu-
dent's girlfriend, the affidavit stated.
The student told police he and his
girlfriend have received unwanted
phone calls and text messages for the
past year, it stated.
The situation culminated Sept. 9,
when he discovered that his password to
the UF computer network had been reset
without his permission, it stated.
The password could be used to access
academic records, financial information
and private e-mails, it stated.
According to the affidavit, he re-
ported the incident to the Computing
Help Desk, which determined that the


password had been changed over the
phone three hours earlier, when a caller
had successfully answered his security
questions.
While on the phone with the help
desk, someone else logged onto the ac-
count from a computer in Titusville, it
stated. While the help desk was inves-
tigating the problem, the same caller
again requested the password to be reset,
.it stated.
Officials notified UF po-
On lice, who traced the call to a
Campus telephone number belong-
ing to Treinen, it stated.
An investigation by the police showed
that just prior to the student's account
being accessed, Treinan had viewed his
personal data from a computer at the
Titusville Police Department using po-
lice driver and vehicle records, it stated.
Police speculated that information from
the records could have been used to an-
swer the security questions, it stated.
In March of 2008, the investigation
found, Treinen had requested informa-
tion about the student from University
Police, saying he was trying to obtain an
injunction against him for harassing his
fiancee and child, it stated.
Investigation of the case is still un-
derway.

Med students burn out


By ALEXANDRA BIZARES
Alligator Contributing Writer

A recent study found that feeling
burned out may be associated with
increased suicidal thoughts among
students in medical school.
The study of about 4,000 students
from seven U.S. medical schools
showed that about 50 percent of its
participants experienced burnout,
which the study defines as emotional
exhaustion, depersonalization and
low personal accomplishment.
About 11.2 percent of the students
had suicidal thoughts in the past year,
according to the study, which was
published earlier this month in the
Annals of Internal Medicine. In the
general U.S. population, the rate is
6.9 percent among people in that age
group.
The results may be representative
of students in the College of Medicine
at UF, said Dr. Lawrence Klima, as-
sociate program director for the UF
internal medicine residency.
Burnout seems to be related to
suicidal thoughts, Klima said. If stu-
dents can recover from those feelings,
they are less likely to have suicidal
thoughts.
The findings may help the college
target burnout, he said.
"The college offers counseling
services and workshops on stress


and anxiety management at the
Office of Student Counseling and
Development.
Devin Bustin, a second-year UF
medical student, said he recognizes
burnout in medical school, but he
doesn't know of any incidences of
classmates contemplating suicide.
Bustin said medical school is ex-
tremely stressful, and he can spend
up to 80 hours a week in class and
studying.

"It does take over your life
because it has to."
Devin Bustin
second-year UF medical student


"It does take over your life because
it has to," he said.
Most students handle the pressure
well, he said, and they try to find dif-
ferent ways to release stress, such as
going to the gym or running.
Claudia Leon, a junior biology ma-
jor who plans to go to medical school,
said the news doesn't faze her.
Having a support system that al-
lows students to do what they need to
do without giving them extra respon-
sibilities will be important throughout
medical school, Leon said.
"I'm not deterred by a statistic,"
she said. "It's what I want to do, and
I'll handle it as it comes."

National bailout protest sees low turnout locally


By ANDREA ASUAJE
Alligator Writer
aasuaje@alligator.org

On a national day of "emergency ral-
lies," a small group of women gathered
on the comer of South Main Street and
Southwest Second Avenue to protest the
$700 billion government bailout for Wall
Street.
TrueMajority, a grassibots group found-
ed by Ben & Jerry's co-founder Ben Cohen,
encouraged the day of protest against gov-
ernment funds being used to save strug-
gling financial corporations.
In Gainesville, the protest attracted five
people.
The event's planner, Gabriela
Waschewsky, and four other women
showed up in front of the courthouse at the
5 p.m. starting time.
Waschewsky, a member of Gainesville's
Green Party, said in an interview before the
protest that this was the first time she has
organized a political event. Waschewsky
said she's trying to get herself and others
involved in politics.
"If there are people who are actually go-
ing out and standing on a corer for hours,


it shows that they're a little more interested
in this issue," she said.
Though the turnout was lower than she
intended, the women said their piece about
the state of the economy.
Fe Ripka, another protester and a
member of the women's political group
CodePink, said the bailouts are merely
giving money to big corporations, robbing
taxpayers of their money.
"It's like I threw a party and no-
body came."
Gabriela Waschewsky
protest planner

Ripka, who waved a sign that said
"Health care for all," said she lived in
Bradford County but often came -to
Gainesville to protest.
JAnn Murray, a staffer of the Alachua
County Labor Party, said it was important
to show a stance on the bailout issue be-
cause it's affecting everyone.
"They're just using this scare tactic and
time constraints to force us to go along with-
what they want us to do," Murray said.
"You don't have to just swallow it."

RTS to increase rates, reduce Saturday service Oct. 1


* THE FARE INCREASE IS
-THE FIRST IN 12 YEARS.

In response to a $1.5 million
deficit, Gainesville's Regional
Transit System will increase rates
and reduce Saturday service
starting Oct. 1.
Saturday service routes will be
replaced with modified Sunday


routes.
The routes will now run once
an hour between 7 a.m. and 6
p.m., except Route 401, formerly
Route 5, which will run every
30 minutes, RTS spokeswoman
Theresa Harrison said.
Route 401 and Route 400, for-
merly Route 20, will also receive
UF funding to run until later at


night, she said.
The fare increase is RTS's first
in 12 years, Harrison
Local said. It will include
News adult fares, which
will increase from
$1 to $1.50; all-day passes, which
will increase from $2 to $3; and
student semester passes, which
will increase from $35 to $60.


RTS proposed a list of possible
solutions to its budget problems
in July, including reducing ser-
vice frequency on eight Saturday-
only routes from one hour to two
hours, she said.
After listening to input from
Gainesville residents, the city
commission passed the rate
increase and reduced Saturday


Service frequency at its Sept. 18
meeting.
Harrison said she thought RTS
users had been receptive to the
changes.
"Although everyone would
like to have kept the existing
fares and existing levels of ser-
vice, they understood," she said.

UF receives high grades on eco-friendly report card


By LAUREN BAKER
Alligator Writer
lbaker@alligator.org

The grades are in, and according to the
2009 College Sustainability Report Card,
UF's eco-friendly efforts are above average,
though its score in endowment transparency
remains low.
UF upgraded from its score last year of a
B-minus to a B-plus, receiving higher marks
than other Florida institutions that were as-
sessed.
In the study, which was released
Wednesday by the Sustainable Endowments
Institute, UF received A's in categories such


as food and recycling, administration, stu-
dent involvement and investment priorities.
Anna Prizzia, outreach coordinator of
UF's Office of Sustainability, said it is dif-
ficult to know what standards make the
grade.
"There aren't a whole lot of robust crite-
ria for those report cards," Prizzia said. "In
some cases, it's really a matter of the people
involved in the organization making their
own judgment."
UF received its lowest marks in the areas
of endowment transparency and sharehold-
er engagement, which were nevertheless
higher than the previous year, rising from
F's to D's.


"We consider transparency to be an
important issue in all realms of the univer-
sity, but we don't foray into the university's
Prizzia said.
UF's endowment
is overseen by the UF
Investment Corporation.
Steve Orlando, UF
S spokesman, said the boost
in the financial catego-
Orlando ries likely resulted from
administrative actions
following spring protests by Students for a
Democratic Society, or SDS, which urged UF
to make its investments transparent.


"The president took those concerns to
heart," Orlando said, adding that UF's in-
vestments from its endowment cannot be
completely transparent because the goal is
to get maximum returns.
Skeet Surrency, an SDS member, said
the overall grade did not seem legitimate
because the information taken to determine
UF's grade was self-reported.
"It's UF trying to make themselves look
good, and that's just ridiculous," Surrency
said. "Let's focus on things besides just opti-
mizing profits."
Surrency called for the creation of an ad-
visory committee to ensure socially respon-
sible investments.


Teenagers attempt to use stolen credit card at Wal-Mart


* THEY TRIED TO BUY MORE
THAN $700 OF CLOTHING.
Three boys were arrested early
Thursday in connection with a
$779.26 attempted charge on a sto-
len credit card.
Three boys attempted to buy


more than $700 in clothing and the
clerk noticed a woman's name on
the credit card, a Gainesville Police
report stated.
When police arrived, two of the
boys were being held at the check-
out, and one was hiding in the back
of the store, it stated.


The credit card belonged to UF
sophomore Patpilai Kasinpila and
had been used about
Local an hour earlier to
News purchase a candy bar
at the same Wal-Mart,
it stated.
Two of the boys, ages 15 and 16,


were arrested on charges of grand
theft and credit card fraud, the re-
port stated. Information on the third
was not available.
They told police the credit card
came from a purse they had stolen
earlier in the evening at The Estates
apartments, it stated.


One boy had two credit cards, a
Starbucks gift card and a Blockbuster
gift card, which had all been in the
purse, the report stated.
The second had a small tin of
mints that he told police had also
come from the purse, it stated.

UF may have more freedom to redistribute state construction funds


BOARD, from page 1


freshman cap,'" said Mark Rosenberg, out-
going chancellor of the board.
Rosenberg announced earlier this week
that he would resign in February and re-
turn to the Florida International University
faculty.
At Thursday's meeting, board chair-
woman Sheila McDevitt said she would
form a search committee for Rosenberg's
replacement in the next few weeks.
McDevitt said she is open to finding an
interim chancellor if the committee cannot
complete its search by the time Rosenberg
resigns. However, she added that there is
no need to speculate until then.
"I don't want them to rush," she said. "I
want them to do what is necessary to get
the best option."

Machen Supports Proposal
UF President Bernie Machen said he
supports redistributing PECO funds to
Courtelis projects.
"We have a perfect storm right now
where we have a huge backlog of Courtelis
money that's sitting in the bank of our in-
stitutions and can't be accessed, yet at the


same time, we have PECO funds," Machen
said at the meeting.
Specifically, UF hopes to reallocate $20
million in PECO funds to match existing
donations for a planned expansion of the
Ham Museum of Art and construction of
William R. Hough Hall, which will house
the graduate business school, he said.
UF already has $10 million for each proj-
ect, he said, but that money cannot be used
because the Legislature has not matched.
the funds through the Courtelis program.
According to Alligator archives, UF
asked the Legislature for $28 million
in Courtelis funds and received only
$160,000.
In an interview, Machen said he doesn't
expect the- Courtelis program to be fully
restored for a year or two, which is why
he wants to use PECO funds a more
stable money source based on utilities taxes
- to match the existing $20 million from
donors.
However, other board members, includ-
ing Rosenberg, expressed concern that us-
ing PECO money in this way could suggest
to the Legislature that universities don't
need the Courtelis program anymore.
"If we're going to do this, I would like


to see it done for only one year," Rosenberg
said after the meeting.
Machen said he's confident the
Legislature would continue funding both
programs.
However, because the Legislature won't
make the final decision
until May, UF will con-
tinue with plans for a
$20 million loan to fund
the Ham Museum and
Hough Hall projects,
Machen wrote in an e-
mail Thursday evening.
Machen Machen announced
the plans for a loan at the Board of Trustees
meeting earlier this month.

Access Versus Quality
Board of Governors members found
themselves again in disagreement Thursday
when they discussed whether to continue
the cap on freshman enrollment.
Those who support the enrollment
freeze, such as Rosenberg, said the State
University System's first priority is to
ensure the quality of education that under-
graduates receive.
"We can get students in, but we're hav-


ing trouble getting them out," Rosenberg
said, referring to how hard it is for under-
graduates to take all the courses they need
to graduate on time.
However, the board members who want
to remove the enrollment cap said the
system's first priority is to provide greater
access to a college education.
Ava Parker, the board's vice chairwom-
an, made the original motion in July 2007 to
implement the enrollment cap, but she said
she now wants to repeal the measure to in-
crease access for Florida students.
"I just think that, based on the current
economic conditions, I'd rather have my
students in a crowded class than not have
one at all," Parker said.
The board asked Florida State University
Provost Larry Abele and Florida Education
Commissioner Eric Smith to lead a group
that will recommend whether to continue
the enrollment cap.
The group will present its findings for a
vote at the November meeting.
Abele said on Thursday that he doesn't
think access is a problem.
"They may not get into the university
(in) Florida where they want," he said, "but
there has always been a spot for students."

Gainesville children's theater to open in spring


* OLD AMPHITHEATER WILL
BE CONVERTED.

By S. FAITH REAVES
Alligator Contributing Writer

Children in Gainesville- may
have a new reason to step away
from the television and embrace
the arts with the opening of
the Thomas Center Theatre for
Young Audiences in spring.
The new theater will be set
up in an old amphitheater in the


Thomas Center Gardens, which
hasn't been used in over 10 years
because of overgrowth and lack
of shade.
David Ballard, Gainesville's
new events coordinator, will be
the theater's artistic director.
A veteran puppet master,
Ballard has performed and di-
rected programs for children for
more than 30 years.
Although the theater won't be
specifically for puppets, he said,
Ballard hopes to incorporate
them into the performances.


Ballard said he discovered
the vacant amphitheater when
he was interviewed for his posi-
tion in December and wanted to
"bring it back to life."
Because of
the city's large
Around b dget cuts,
Gainesvlle budget cuts,
Ballard said
he is looking
into fundraisers, donations and
sponsorships to landscape the
area and purchase umbrellas for
shade.
Gainesville's Department of


Parks, Recreation and Cultural
Affairs will host a 1920s-themed
ball in the Thomas Center on,
Saturday with admission prices
going toward the project.
Ballard said he hopes the the-
ater can be open by March.
He's already planning his first
production, he said, which might
be an adaptation of the Chinese
tale, "The Monkey King."
The performance would fea-
ture martial arts, dancing and
flying, he said.
He and other guest directors


will put on six shows a year,
he said, which will be held on
Saturday mornings and Thirsday
evenings.
Although the theater will
be the only one in the area that
specifically appeals to young au-
diences, Ballard said he hopes to
attract an audience of all ages.
"I have performed in theaters
and festivals all over the world
with a mix of children and adults
in my audiences," he said. "I love
having the whole family enjoy
sharing live theater."


Petitioners want UNF to manage Jacksonville autism center; UF disagrees


CENTER, from page 1


Times-Union on Thursday, believe the
center's leadership has become a trust issue
between the taxpayers and the stewardship
agencies, including UF.
Julie Delegal, a 43-year old UF alumna
and Jacksonville resident, initiated the peti-
tion.
"What I'm trying to do now is create
awareness," Delegal said. "What they don't
appreciate is that the program does not be-
long to UF it belongs to the taxpayers."
Delegal's paper petition has received
more than 130 signatures, but it is unclear
how many people signed both.
Delegal's main qualm with UF's control
of the center stems from a mishandling of
grant money awarded to the center almost
10 years ago.
According to local news reports, between


1999 and 2004, Paul Wharton, a former pro-
fessor and administrator at UF's medical
school in Jacksonville, subcontracted more
than $500,000 in grant money to the Florida
Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association instead
of the autism center and a CARD sister
agency, the Florida Diagnostic and Learning
Resources System.
Wharton pleaded guilty to embezzling
about $253,000 of the grant for personal pur-
chases, according to his 2007 plea.
The petition's constituency board, which
includes parents, physicians and psycholo-
gists in Jacksonville and throughout Florida,
is still irked by money that was unaccounted
for following a $400,000 settlement reached
in 2005.
"UF was asleep at the wheel while this
criminal took money away from our com-
munity," Delegal said. "I think of how many
behaviorists could have been hired and


deployed in public schools to assist with
families hands-on and educate them in first
choice treatment for autism."
Hudak said the money, which didn't
"There is a great deal more sup-
port than there is with the con-
stituents of this petition."
Mark Hudak
associate chairman for pediatrics at UF's
College of Medicine in Jacksonville


amount to the $550,000 of funds that were
illegitimately subcontracted, will be. dis-
bursed to the center and its sister agency, the
Florida Diagnostic and Learning Resources
System.
The petition also disapproves of UF's de-
cision to move the center to one location that


housed multiple agencies of the college even
though legislation passed this year rejecting
multi-agency arrangements.
Despite the petition's call to change
oversight of the center, Hudak said UF's
Jacksonville .medical school has received
many letters about how well the program
has served the autism center's patients and
their families.
"There is a great deal more support than
there is with the constituents of this peti-
tion," he said. "If it comes down to a decision
to where CARD should reside, we will make
a very strong case as to where the program
will stay."
Still, Delegal and other petitioners want
the Jacksonville center to be managed by
UNE
"I want for my alma mater to come clean
and make good on the harm that has been
done to this community," Delegal said.

Snead to make return to Gainesville

gentleman?
We here at the alligator-
Sports Brand Picks Column would
certainly like to think that we have
the class of those down-to-earth
Southerners.
But apparently, Mississippi yes,
Mississippi has lost its roots. In
2003, Chancellor Robert Khayat and
Rebels athletic director Pete Boone
decided to replace the team's mascot,
the elder, white-bearded Colonel Reb,
with a more muscular, athletic looking
talisman.
So we decided to call up Brian
Ferguson, the chairman of the Colonel
Reb Foundation, who is trying to get
the Colonel Reb mascot that most in the
MagetZ a State have come to love, back
in Oxford.
Ferguson's cause led the Foundation
all over the place from CNN (yes,
people in Mississippi get that channel)
to ESPN to the New York Times and
that's where people heard what they
had to say. Good luck, fellas.
"They said because he was unath-
letic looking and it didn't represent
what the university was aiming at,"
Ferguson said. "They said it also hurt
recruiting."
Saying an old man isn't athletic?
Sounds like age discrimination to us.
Now cover your eyes for a sec-
ond, Gators fans, because here's what
Ferguson had to say about why having
a macho mascot is not necessary:
"Look at the University of Florida,
you've got Alberta the Alligator roam-
ing the sidelines a female alligator
with a bow in her hair," Ferguson said.
Now, before you jump on our
guest's back, this ought to make you
feel better.
"You've got a big nut that's roaming
the sidelines at Ohio State," he said.
Better?

By MIKE McCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alligator.org

Before the future of UF's
offense was centered on Tim
Tebow and Percy Harvin, it
was focused on a strong-armed
Texan named Jevan Snead.
Snead was one of the first
verbal commitments to the
Gators' 2006 recruiting class,
and he seemed like a perfect fit
for coach Urban Meyer.
He'll finally make his debut
at The Swamp on Saturday,
albeit two years late and in a
different uniform as he leads
Mississippi against the No. 4
Gators.
SSnead averaged more than
300 yards and four touch-
downs per game in his final
two seasons at Stephenville
(Texas) High, all while running
some of Meyer's plays.
"During high school, my of-
fense was very similar to that
of Florida's and coach Meyer's
when he was at Utah, so we
got a lot of our offense from
them," Snead said. "It felt like
it would be a good fit for me at
the time."
His official visit for the UF-
Tennessee game that season -
the same weekend that Harvin
was in town further cement-
ed his decision. The recruiting
race for Harvin was still wide-


open, and since Tebow had a
long list of schools to choose
from, Snead looked like the
best bet to be running the show
in Gainesville.
But his orange-and-blue
dreams didn't last long.
He said this week that it was
too long ago to remember, but
according to the book "Meat
Market,"
Which fo-
cused on col-
.lege football
recruiting,
S Meyer told
Snead in
2005 that he
Meyer was recruit-
ing Tebow as
a linebacker.
Meyer and Tebow denied
that this week, with Tebow re-
sponding simply, "No, never,"
but at any rate, when Snead
realized he wasn't the only
quarterback on Meyer's wish
list, he switched his commit-
ment to Texas.
"I guess it was a little frus-
trating, but I decided that it
wouldn't be the best situation
for me (at UF)," Snead said. "I
decided to withdraw my com-
mitment, and fortunately it has
worked out for both Florida
and myself."
Tebow and Harvin both

Oher is real player to watch on Mississippi offense


alk all you want about Mississippi's
quarterback, Jevan Snead. I won't be.
When the ball is snapped to No. 4
on Saturday, I won't be following him. I'll
be watching the best player in the state of
Mississippi Michael Oher.
If Oher, the Rebels' left tackle, isn't do-
ing his job as well as he always does, then it
won't matter if Snead is an up-and-coming
gunslinger. He'll be on his back.
The offensive and defensive lines are of-
ten underappreciated, but they are crucial to
any team's success. We haven't mentioned
Oher's name once in this week's coverage
leading up to Saturday's game, and that's
a travesty. He will impact the game more
than anyone else in crimson and blue.
I don't understand how the left tackle can
be overlooked anymore. Three of the top 15
players selected in the 2008 NFL Draft were
offensive tackles, including the first overall


Evan Drexler
The Drex Factor
edrexler@alligator.org


pick, Jake Long, who
went to the Miami
Dolphins. In 2007, the
Cleveland Browns
took Joe Thomas
with the No. 3 overall
pick and the Arizona
Cardinals made Levi
Brown pick No. 5.
Thomas made the Pro


Bowl in his first year.
Oher is very much in that mold and
will be a top-10 if not a top-five pick in the
2009.Draft. If he went to the pros instead of
coming back to Mississippi this season, he
could have been right along with Long.
His story is truly amazing, one docu-
mented in "The Blind Side" by Michael
Lewis, author of "Moneyball." The book
uses the tale of Oher's rough upbringing
to show how important left tackles have


become to football, as evidenced by the
recent NFL Drafts. I tore through the nearly
300-page book in two days.
This is why a left tackle is important:
When a right-handed quarterback like
Snead drops back to pass, his back faces his
left side. Oher, his left tackle, is responsible
for keeping defenders Snead can't see from
slamming him into the ground.
Oher plays the position like no one
else in college football. He's not just huge
- though he is huge, tipping the scales at
6-feet, 5-inches and 318 pounds but he's
also quick on his feet. One of the anecdotes
from the book I always remember is when
Oher got mad at a defender who was taunt-
ing him all game one year in high school.
Oher saved up his rage for a quarter and
a half, and then decided to take him out of

the game. Oher lifted the player off his feet,
and "blocked" him off the field and halfway
to his team bus. Oher wanted to send him
home. That's how dominant he was.
The craziest thing is that Oher never
played organized football until his junior
year in high school. He's just a natural tal-
ent. Speed and strength make for the best left
tackle in college football.
I briefly spoke to Oher at Southeastern
Conference Media Days in Hoover, Ala., this
July. It was intimidating just to be near him.
While other players spoke into the micro-
phones, Oher leaned back and engulfed the
mike, making it look like a toothpick.
Basically, the UF defensive line will have
some work to do.
"The thing about him is he's big and
physical, but he's also a pretty good athlete,"
UF defensive end Justin Trattou said. "I saw
one play where he ran all the way down the
field."
So go ahead and follow that skinny wimp
Jevan Snead when he has the ball.
I'll be watching the action.


PICKS, from page 22

to find any high school athlete who has loved bulldogs all their
life, and then choose the Bulldogs because of it. We're dog lov-
ers here, but we're not about to give Uga extra pats either.
"You've got all these programs that might not be so called
'athletic' (because of their mascots)," Ferguson said. "That just
doesn't happen. It's just a cop out (by the administration)."
Are there even any alligators here anymore? We're not sure.
Ferguson said their Colonel Reb is still allowed to attend
games, but he's not allowed on the sidelines. But maybe
if they sell enough of those Colonel Reb bumper stickers
they're marketing, the Colonel will get back out there.
It doesn't hurt that new coach Houston Nutt is a supporter of
the mascot.
"With coach Nutt's approval, I don't see a reason why it
shouldn't happen," Ferguson said. "When you hear Houston
Nutt say that, it just adds to the emphasis that we've been cor-
rect the entire time. There is nothing wrong with the mascot."
Heck, 'they even came up with their own term for this. Get
ready for it: "ColonelGate."
Believe it.
"It's just kind of a funny phrase that we came up with,"
Ferguson said. "We obviously got it from Watergate. The fact
is that it was just behind the scenes or no thought at all put into
removing the Colonel."
We've seen it all.
With that said, on to the picks!
In first place with a 22-8 record is Assistant Sports Editor
Evan "Why shouldn't a Jewish dude root for Texas Christian
University?" Drexler, who has not benefited at all from spend-
ing an entire road trip reading about how guys pick up girls.


In second place with a 20-10 record is Phil "Tennessee's
football stadium sucks compared to its women's basketball
shrine" Kegler, who doesn't read his insults, giving us freedom
to write whatever we want about him without consequence. He
is a poop-eater.
In third with a 19-11 record is Sports Editor Brian "With
snoring this loud, it's no wonder I'm single" Steele,-whose
nighttime nasal noises are louder than a packed Neyland
Stadium ...whatever that sounds like. At least his voice isn't
really high-pitc ...oh, right.
In fourth place with an 18-12 record is Karl "If they don't
bring me Major Wright I'm going to hurt someone" Hyppolite,
who suffered all week writing his feature story despite only
talking to Wright once. With those kinds of empty threats, he's
sounding more and more like a professional journalist every
day.
In dead-ass last place with a piss-poor 17-13 record is East
Carolina homer Mike "Now I'm done" McCall, whose heart
goes aflutter when the enchanting Brady Quinn commercial for
EAS comes on the television. His man-crush would be cute if it
wasn't so disgusting. Jeez, McCall, get a room.

UF seeks redemption for slow 2007 conference start


* THE GATORS WON 13 IN A
ROW LAST SEASON.

By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Alligator Writer
cyazbec@alligator.org

Katie Fraine remembers exactly
what -happened last season when
the UF soccer team lost at Georgia
and Tennessee.
"We definitely didn't come out
as hard as we needed to," the goal-
keeper said.
That, combined with the efforts
of both opponents, forced UF into
a 0-2 Southeastern Conference
start a year ago.
Then things changed.


"(We) just realized that we're
not going to be able to just come
out and walk all over teams,"
Fraine said. "We have to play."
That mindset helped UF reel
off 13 straight victories, including
SEC regular season and tourna-
ment titles. The Gators defeated
Georgia in the championship 4-1,
avenging their only loss ever to the
Bulldogs.
No. 16 UF (5-2-1) will get a
chance to redo the first weekend
of conference play starting Friday
night at 7 when it hosts Georgia
(2-6-0).
Even though her team has
proven it can rebound from early
conference losses, UF coach Becky
Burleigh does not want to have to


face that situation again.
"We were playing good soc-
cer in those two games, we just
didn't win," she said. "Certainly
the urgency of needing to get W's
changed a little bit.
But we don't want
to start that trend
again this year."
Georgia's re-
Soccer cord coming in
might be some-
what deceptive.
The Bulldogs, ranked 18th in
the preseason, have lost to five
teams currently in the top 13.
With that schedule, the SEC
doesn't seem so intimidating any-
more.
The Gators haven't fooled


around in the non-conference
either.
They've defeated three of the
four top-25 teams they've faced,
the only loss coming at No. 4
Portland 2-0 last Friday.
"(To be prepared is) why we do
it," Burleigh said. "I think it's re-
ally a big deal for us to make sure
that we're facing not just good
teams but a variety of styles."
One thing's for sure, UF isn't
taking the weekend lightly this
time around.
Junior midfielder Ashlee Elliott
said -the juniors and seniors spoke
to the rest of the team on Tuesday
and "let them know that this is a
big weekend for us and we need to
take revenge."


"I feel like this weekend we
have to show up bigger and more
ready than we did last year,"
Elliott said.
On Sunday, the Gators will take
on Tennessee (3-5-0), a team they
haven't beaten in the regular sea-
son since 2002.
Three of the Volunteers' five
losses have come against teams
currently in the top 20.
Now, Fraine wants to begin
SEC play delivering the blows
rather than taking them.
"It was a real punch in the face,"
she said. "To be able to come out
and beat Georgia and Tennessee,
two of the hardest teams in the
SEC, it would just bring a lot of
confidence to the (team)."

Rivers searches for playing time on talented Gator squad


By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer

Patience isn't a virtue that Callie Rivers is
fond of.
After playing an extensive role during the
early part of the season for the Gators, the
sophomore outside hitter has all but fallen
out of the UF rotation.
She didn't play at all in last weekend's
match against Georgia and played only spar-
ingly in UF's win against LSU.
UF coach Mary Wise said Rivers' play-
ing-time reduction is due to the number of
talented players she has to choose from at the
position.

"We're going with whoever has the hot
hand," Wise said. "There aren't enough spots
for everyone to play all the time."
The main reason for Rivers' relegation to
the bench is the sudden emergence of fresh-
man Colleen Ward, who has led the team in
kills in each of the Gators' last two games.
While Rivers said she is OK with the deci-
sion to incorporate more of the team's young
players at the position, she would obviously
prefer to be on the court.
"Nobody likes to not play," she said. "I
think we have so many different lineups that
we can use as a weapon, so whatever works
as long as we're winning."
Rivers will hope to work her way back
into the rotation when the No. 10 Gators (8-1,

Growing up with three
brothers, Rivers didn't
have the luxury of taking
things slow.
Whether it was a race
to the car or who got to
drink the last glass of or-
ange juice, there was not a
Rivers lot of sitting around in the
Rivers' home.
"Everything was a competition in my
household," she said.
So it's no surprise that she hasn't taken a
liking to the bench.

Despite her diminished role, Rivers still
views herself as one of the team's motiva-
tional leaders.
"I hate to lose, so if we're anywhere near
losing, I'm going to try to motivate anyone
around me," Rivers said.
If history is any indication, she won't have
to worry about losing anytime soon, though.
The Gators are 24-2 all-time against the
Razorbacks.
Rivers is still searching for her role on a
team that is the youngest and perhaps one of
the most talented of the Wise era.
But then again, fighting for her spot has
never been a problem for Rivers.
"Our team is very competitive and because
I'm very competitive, it helps," she said.

Gators get set for big test at Preview Invitational


* UF WILL FACE EIGHT OF THE
PRESEASON TOP 10.

By EUGENIO TORRENS
Alligator Writer

If you're measured by the company you
keep, the UF men's golf team should be re-
gardedin high esteem starting on Sunday.
The team will be in Toledo, Ohio for the
Preview Invitational along with some stiff
competition.
"It's the best field that we'll play in the
fall," coach Buddy Alexander said. "This is
obviously the most important tournament
in the fall because it's where the (NCAA
Championship is) going to be played."
Senior Billy Horschel said the tournament
will gauge how the team is doing.
"We need to put ourselves in a tournament
where (there are) a lot of teams that are re-
ally good and have a lot of good players," he
said. "It shows us where we stand alongside
them."
The field consists of eight of the top-10


teams in the Golfweek Preseason poll, includ-
ing No. 1 Georgia and No. 2 Oklahoma State.
No. 4 Southern California will also be
there, along with Chattanooga, which won the
Carpet Capital Collegiate in Rocky Face, Ga.
The No. 12 Gators tinkered with their
lineup a bit by bringing in freshman Mu Hu.
The five-man rotation will be filled out by
members of the last rotation with Horschel,
Andres Echavarria, Toby Ragland and Tyson
Alexander.
The Preview Invitational will test the
Gators more than the season-launching Carpet
Capital Collegiate, where they finished fifth.
If UF is to have a shot at competing in this
tournament, it will have to avoid a sluggish
start that plagued them at the Carpet Capital.
"Obviously, if we get off to a bad start, we
may discuss it a little bit," Alexander said.
With such a talent-filled field, a slow start
may doom the Gators before the sun sets on
the first round.
But the team is sleeping well and isn't let-
ting one slip-up haunt it.
"There's one thing that we learned at the
Carpet Capital Collegiate, was that we can


bounce back from a bad round and play well,"
Horschel said.
Alexander isn't abandoning ship either.
"I'm not ready to panic yet because we
had one poor opening round," Alexander'
said. "We'll just hope that that doesn't hap-
pen again and move on as
though it didn't."
The par-71, 7,255-yard
Inverness Club also hosts
the NCAA Championships
in the spring.
"You don't want a team
full of guys to go up there
and play poorly and have a
Alexander bad taste in their mouths, or
a bad feeling, or negative vibes about this golf
course that we're going to ultimately compete
on for the national championship," Alexander
said.
If history is indicative of anything, though,
the Gators may not want to fly up.
UF missed the Preview in 2001 and won
the NCAA Championship that year.

WOMEN LOOK TO REBOUND: Time may not


heal all wounds, but in this case it just needs
to heal a 14th-place finish.
It's been 18 days since the UF women's
golf team's last tournament, and it will look to
rebound with the start of the Mason Rudolph
Women's Championships today in Franklin,
Tenn.
Other teams in the field include defending
champion Southern California and power-
house Duke.
"This is another event with a very strong
field," coach Jill Briles-Hinton said. "(The
girls) can't worry about who's here. They just
have to take care of business and just worry
about themselves."
The team will have a similar lineup to its
first tournament with the exception of Hannah
Yun, who is making her sophomore debut.
"I'm definitely expecting an immediate
boost," Hinton said about Yun in the lineup.
Joining Yun is sophomore Jessica
Yadloczky, junior Brittany Nelson and fresh-
men Evan Jensen and Andrea Watts.
Sophomore Lauren Uzelatz is also mak-
ing the trip, but will only be competing as an
individual.


Quarterback transfers to Rebels after Texas can't promise playing time


SNEAD, from page 20

signed on soon after Snead bolted,
and their careers have gone quite
differently.
Snead saw playing time with
the Longhorns, but it was apparent
that fellow freshman Colt McCoy
had won the job, so Snead trans-
ferred to Mississippi, where he has


started all four games this season.
His performances have ranged
from promising (a 253-yard, four
touchdown day in a narrow loss to
Wake Forest) to awful (four inter-
ceptions and no scores last week
against Vanderbilt), but it's clear
that the respect that drove Meyer
to recruit Snead at Utah and UF is
still there.


"We think he's a tremendous
talent," Meyer said. "He's got
great touch and
great release on the
. ball, and he launch-
es it. They'll throw it
FOtball down the field. He's
not much more ex-
perienced than any of these guys,
but he's as talented as anybody in


the country."
Snead will be the fourth inex-
perienced quarterback the Gators
have faced in as many games,
but his arm strength poses a new
threat. UF hasn't been tested
against the deep ball this season,
and the Gators will have to keep
Snead from getting comfortable in
the pocket.


Snead said he has "no hard feel-
ings" toward Meyer or the Gators,
but if he's able to settle in, expect
a few long tosses that could be the
difference between an upset and a
blowout.
"I'd like to take advantage of
that," Snead said. "Anytime I have
a chance to throw a deep ball, it's
definitely a good thing."
