GATORS DROP THE BALL

UF suffers upset in

first loss of season

By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org
There were 41 seconds left, and Jeremy Foley didn't
want to watch anymore.
That's when UF's athletics director turned away
from a team that couldn't advance the football 3 feet.
A team that was less than one minute from witnessing
giddy Mississippi players flocking to photographers
and doing dances that would make Michael Jackson
blush. A team whose hopes for an unblemished season
vanished like the orange-and-blue-clad fans did from
The Swamp. A team that now has a serious identity
crisis.
Now it's time to page Dr. Tebow for help, and this
is going to require more minute cuts than what he
did over the summer when he gave circumcisions to
Filipino babies.
For Tebow, that's going to be about as easy as it
would be for him to renounce the Bible. Because it's cer-
tainly not easy to alleviate the pain of 120 other sweat- V l---
drenched football players who were refusing to take off
their pads as they sat in a hushed locker room.
"It was so quiet you could hear a pin drop," cor-
nerback Joe Haden said after the humbling 31-30 loss Charles Roop/Alligator Staff

Before Ole Miss hit the Swamp
on Saturday, presidential candidates
Barack Obama and John McCain took
the stage in the Rebels' territory at the
University of Mississippi for their first
presidential debate.
Although supporters said they
called Friday's debate in favor of their
own candidates, experts said it was a


draw.

Forest Whitaker visits UF


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Writer
Academy Award-winning actor and
Obama supporter Forest Whitaker took the
stage in the Reitz Union's Grand Ballroom to
a standing ovation and left it to another.
After his speech, people crowded him so
forcefully that an announcer asked everyone
to "give him just a little bit of room."
Whitaker, who won best actor for his
portrayal of Ugandan dictator Idi Amin in
the 2006 movie "The Last King of Scotland,"
spoke to about 1,000 people for nearly 10
minutes on his impression of Democratic
presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama


and encouraged everyone in attendance to
vote.
The event, which started about 8 p.m.,
S11 ,, was free and open to the
public.
During his speech,
Whitaker said the U.S. is
dealing with war, an eco-
nomic crisis and environ-
mental destruction.
"What happens during
Whitaker times like this is you look
for a leader," he said.
Whitaker used the butterfly effect to ex-

Hip-hop artist Pitbull performs for Hispanic Heritage Month


By HENRY TAKSIER
Alligator Contributing Writer

For Cuban-American hip-hop artist Pitbull,
Hispanic Heritage Month is about struggling
to succeed a concept he said he learned
from his grandmother who was a part of the


Cuban Revolution.
"It means coming from nothing to some-
thing," he said.
PitbuU's show, which was sponsored
by Hispanic Heritage Month and Student
Government Productions, opened at 7 p.m.
Friday at the Phillips Center for the Performing


Arts. He took the stage at 9 p.m.
Maryam Laguna, executive
On director of Hispanic Heritage
Campus Month, said the organization
Campus wanted to pick someone cross-
cultural that everyone on cam-
pus could recognize.


"It's not only about celebrating our own
heritage but sharing it with others," Laguna
said.
Pitbull expressed a similar opinion.
"Music is a universal language," he said.
"No matter what language you speak, as long
as it's good music, people will vibe to it."

* FRATERNITY COLLECTED
1,414 CANNED GOODS.

By ERIC GLICKMAN
Alligator Blogger

Eighties comedian Gallagher isn't
the only one with a vendetta against
watermelons.
Sunday, Lambda ChiAlpha frater-
nity smashed some fruit, too, during
its annual charity, the Watermelon
Bust, at Flavet Field.
The philanthropy benefited
Gainesville Harvest, a local food
distribution center, and the North
American Food Drive. In 2007,
Lambda Chi Alpha raised 31,000
pounds of food. This year, it col-
lected 1,414 canned goods, said Ryan
Abemethy, fraternity spokesman.
About 300 sorority members from
the Panhellenic Council also attended
for the field day.
The Watermelon Bust involved
four field events: a greasy water-
melon hand-off, watermelon toss,
watermelon bowling and an obstacle
course.
In the obstacle course, contestants


spinned around bats five times and
formed human wheelbarrows to
move across the field. At the end,
teams smashed watermelons with
baseball bats.
There was also an optional tug of
war at the end of the event. Teams
lined up in a children's inflatable
pool filled with water and chunks of
watermelon, then battled it out.
Events made up 60 percent of the
points for the event's competition,
with the food drive accounting for
another 20 percent. The last 20 per-
cent was awarded for spirit, which
included a banner competition, atten-
dance points and T-shirt sales.
First place went to Alpha Delta Pi,
who dominated both the field events
and the food drive. The sorority alsq,
received a best-in-field award. Second
place went to Delta Delta Delta, and
Phi Mu won third place.

Picnic mixes Victorian style, Sci-Fi
By CHANTELLE MARCELLE -
Alligator Contributing Writer -, . y j '


If not for the cars parked in the distance,
it could have been a real 19th-century lun-
cheon.
About 30 people dressed in Victorian-
themed clothing picnicked on fields of
Kanapaha Park Saturday afternoon.
Top hat-wearing men and parasol-tot-
ing women came for a celebration of ste-
ampunk, a subculture that combines 19th-
century culture with futuristic technology.
The subculture is featured in movies
such as "Wild Wild West" starring Will
Smith and "The League of Extraordinary
Gentlemen" starring Sean Connery, said
Jenny Underwood, who planned the event
with her husband, Adam.
The two decided to organize the picnic
after attending a science-fiction convention
in Atlanta, she said.
Attendees researched 19th-century
menus and recreated dishes, including
deviled eggs, shortbread cookies, salmon
spread and orange balls, which are made
from cranberries and cheddar cheese.
Guests also played croquet and listened
to music by steampunk bands, such as
Abney Park.
People create personalized touches to
their costumes by adding on pieces such as
goggles and watch parts, she said.
Although steampunk is not as popular
in Florida, Driscoll said in parts of New
York and the western states some people

make it a part of their daily life, decorating
their homes and wearing Victorian styles
on a daily basis.
The turnout surprised the Underwoods,
who only expected about five people to
show up based on a Facebook event page.
They said they have plans for a steam-


punk stance, which would incorporate the
Victorian sense of spiritualism.
Adam Underwood, who wore a top
hat, vest and old-fashioned spectacles, said
steampunk was a natural fit for him.
"I've been dressing this way forever,"
Underwood said.


Professors say

no clear winner

DEBATE, from page 1

to the global financial crisis.
"Each candidate took a couple pawns
from their opponent," Heaney said. "But
nobody took the other's queen."
Daniel A. Smith, a UF associate profes-
sor of political science, said he didn't think
the debate would affect the polls.
But because McCain was expected to
make a stronger showing on foreign policy,
a draw may have seemed more favorable
to Obama, Smith said.
"This should have been John McCain's
night to talk about his foreign policy expe-
rience," he said. "I think Obama held his
own."
The candidates' supporters said they
believed the winner of the debate was dear
-but disagreed on who it was..
Heaney said it's difficult to choose a
winner of a single debate until all three
have occurred.
The candidates will also debate in a
town hall setting Oct. 7 and on domestic
policy Oct. 15.
"This is not about winning a debate,"
Heaney said. "This is about winning an
election."

New Hours

Four-day work week

should benefit all
As we ready ourselves for another week of library
camp-outs and all-night study sessions, it seems a
little too easy for us to be negative. What's the point?
We're busy, but so is everyone else, so we have no right to
complain.
Given our current train of thought, we've been trying to
find something to peg as our little ray of positive sunshine.
There's usually something changing for the better, and this
week we think we've found it.
Starting this week, Gainesville city buildings are extend-
ing hours of operation from the traditional 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
five days a week to the innovative, greener 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
four days a week.
You may not think this change is a big deal, but you can
bet that city employees are going to love having three-day
weekends all the time. We know how much we love to have
our time off extended by Labor Day, Memorial Day and
Veterans Day.
Imagine having an extra day off every week; Ginnie
Springs would probably make enough money to bail out
Wall Street.
The way we see it, the benefits of this change far outweigh
the setbacks. Sure, city employees will wake up before the
sun rises and will get home too late to watch the afternoon
"Seinfeld"-rerun hour, but they'll still be home in time to
catch their rerun fix from "Scrubs" and "The Simpsons."
Because everyone who works in City Hall and the
Thomas Center (among other city buildings) will have to
be at work two hours before most of us have to get to our
morning classes, morning rush hour may be downgraded to
a morning rush half-hour.
We all know what that means. We'll have more time to sit
in line at the McDonald's drive-thru, and there'll be less of
a chance of having to lay out some elaborate excuse to our
professors explaining our tardiness. Celebratory McMuffins
for all.
On Friday, Gainesville roads may veer from their normal
pattern of hellish congestion to a less ulcer-inducing form of
traffic.
Archer Road will still be packed with cars, scooters, rick-
shaws and super-streamlined road bicycles, but maybe the
glob of morning commuters will actually be able to gain a
bit of momentum as opposed to the roadway stalemate that
welcomes the weekend.
Apparently, the biggest upside to the city's hours change
has nothing to do with alleviating Gainesville's traffic trou-
bles. According to city spokesman Bob Woods, the city could
save about $90,000 a year in heating and cooling costs by
closing its office buildings on Fridays.
For those of you non-early birds who weren't sold on this
change by our traffic argument, you've got to appreciate the
potentially huge savings. There are plenty of other ways to
spend $90,000 like contributing to local childcare centers,
which will probably need the money to account for city-em-
ployed parents' longer workdays.
We don't wish parents to be away from their kids any lon-
ger than they already are, but the extra day at the end of the
week should make up for the afternoon family-time hours
taken from the first four days of the week.
With three-day weekends and potential savings of about
$90,000 on the plus side of this change, we doubt we'll be
able to maintain our sourpuss status for the entire week,
though our classes undoubtedly will provide a challenge.

Both parties get free, fair trade wrong


With the collapse of negotiations about trade
with developing nations this summer, the fight
between free trade and fair trade has been re-
newed and brought back into the national spotlight.
On the far right side of the aisle lay hardcore free trad-
ers who favor coercing developing nations and emerging
markets into liberalizing their markets before trading with
the U.S. Conversely, the left calls for protectionism and
"fair" trade that protects workers with high tariffs and
protectionist measures.
Unfortunately, both sides completely miss the point.
The answer lies somewhere in between free trade and fair
trade.
To begin with, there are a number of problems with
Milton Friedman's ideal of completely free trade. Under
the auspices of the World Bank, World Trade Organization
and International Monetary Fund, the world's developed
economies (U.S., European Union, etc.) condition loans to
developing economies (China, India, many African na-
tions) upon liberalizing markets by cutting social spend-
ing and protectionist measures. While this sounds like a
good idea, it ignores the fact that developed nations have
a huge upper hand they have much higher levels of
tariffs and subsidization than any developing nation.
Our cotton, wheat and corn subsidies allow us to dump
these commodities into foreign and developing economies
at much lower prices, giving our farmers a huge competi-
tive edge. This forces millions of African and Asian suste-
nance farmers into deep poverty because their production
costs are much higher than that of U.S. producers.
We are asking emerging markets to do exactly what we
didn't protect their markets. U.S. tariff rates were above
40 percent all the way until World War I, once our markets
were sufficiently built up.


In 1963, South Koreans made
less than $200 a year, and now
they are some of the richest
people in the world. They accom-
plished this through heavy state
intervention into the economy
Kyle Robisch until the 1990s.
etters@aligator.org This. example doesn't make
the left any more correct.
Protectionist measures at home
lead to equally protectionist measures abroad. We cannot
ask emerging markets to liberalize while we pass legisla-
tion like the 2008 Farm Bill, which offers more than $174
billion in subsidies to American farmers. That's nearly
$40 billion more than the gross domestic product of West
Africa.
Additionally, Democratic attempts to spin subsidies as
necessary are flat-out wrong. Sixty-six percent of subsidies
go to the top 10 percent of farmers.
That's QK because farmers don't make a lot of money,
right? Actually, the average U.S. cotton farmer has a net
worth of $800,000. A Malian farmer makes about $850 a
year. You make the decision.
Both sides have valid points, but until a middle ground
is reached, nothing significant will be changed. A policy of
reciprocity cuts from both developed and developing
countries is the only way to truly achieve free trade that
is also fair trade. They aren't mutually exclusive.
Until we elect politicians who are willing to compro-
mise and dig deep for a sense of moral integrity, a free and
fair system of global macroeconomics will remain a pipe
dream.

Letters to the Editor
SAT still relevant admissions factor
The SAT has a place in the college applica-
tion process. It's not an arbitrary evaluation
of a student's math and verbal abilities. It acts
as a de facto intelligence test for applicants.
There is a roughly 0.8 correlation between
SAT performance and G-score, which is a
measurement of general intelligence that is
similar to IQ.
Shouldn't schools be able to pick between
the smarter of two otherwise similar appli-
cants?

Bush's exit won't hurt 'Dally Show'
Regarding Anish Mitra's diatribe on "The
Daily Show," I find it tragic that Mitra feels
"the show's structure makes it painfully evi-
dent" that its future will be in jeopardy once
Bush is out of office.
I'll give Mitra the benefit of the doubt. She
probably has not seen most of the show's epi-
sodes, and it might be easy for her to label the
show as "a jeering vehicle to attack President
Bush." Unfortunately, such an analysis miss-
es the mark on many fronts.
"The Daily Show" is a comedy show more
than it is a vehicle of any kind, jeering or
otherwise. Stewart and his writers go with
what's funny. Their viewership is not the
same as a hard news show that has neither
the luxury nor the task of making its audi-
ence laugh.
With that in mind, Stewart has been quite
dear about his debt to Bush for providing
him with so much material and hasn't shied
away from the fact that he'll miss him.


The show has been funny ov
of the primary season, and I ha
that either potential administer

Alligator shows political bias
"The Independent Florida Alligator. We
Inform. You Decide." These eight words
grace the top of every issue, but what are
they worth?
This paper dearly isn't an unbiased source
for students to receive information and make
their own judgment calls.
Day after day, week after week, month af-
ter month,-all I see is more journalism that is'
extremely supportive of Sen. Barack Obama
and the liberal, Democratic view and artides
denigrating Sen. John McCain, Alaska Gov.
Sarah Palin and the rest of the Republican
Party.
If your staff supports Obama, that's fine,
but please, have some journalistic integrity
and report the news as it happens instead
of finding every opportunity to criticize and
mock the McCain-Palin ticket while glorify-
ing Obama and Sen. Joe Biden and qualifying
any possible downside to their campaign.
Do what you are supposed to do and what
you daim so boldly to do. Simply inform and
allow us to decide.

Political volunteers pester the masses
Dear politically minded people:
Are you registered to vote in Alachua
County? Are you registered to vote in
Alachua County? Are you registered to vote
in Alachua County?
A bit annoying, isn't it?
Look, I honestly don't care who you vote
for, but for the love of God, please stop ruth-
lessly pestering me as I walk from class to
class.
I wasn't interested in your clipboards and
cheery attitudes the first time, and I'm not
interested the 500th time.
It's been over a month. Isn't it about time
to call it quits?

No-fumble rule should apply to all players
Now, I know everyone is angry about the
Mississippi loss, so I'm not going to discuss
my anger about that. We made terrible mis-
takes in such blinding succession in the third
quarter that we didn't deserve to win that
game.
What troubled me almost as much as the
mistakes was the perceived double standard
that Urban Meyer has regarding some of the
players.
It's been a stated philosophy for this of-
fense that if you drop the ball, you will sit
(see: Kestahn Moore, whom Urban no longer
trusts running up the middle). However,
Percy Harvin can fumble three times, indud-


ing losing two handoffs placed right into his
stomach, and his rear doesn't see the pine of
the bench?
Don't get me wrong, I'm a big Percy fan,
and I believe as does every sane person
in America that we stand a much better
chance with Percy than without him.
If it has been such a point of emphasis this
year not to fumble, then why can't our star
wideout face the same punishment? Sit him
on the sideline for a play or two, and make
him understand that everyone has to hold on
to the ball.

Gator Party champions green efforts
As a Senate candidate for the Gator Party,
I am proud to claim that we are the party that
supports sustainability.
Our impact on the environment is now
a major concern of the student body, the
University Administration and the City of
Gainesville, and rightfully so.
We will work tirelessly for .a greener
campus by making efforts in reduced energy
consumption, expanding recycling systems
and promoting student use of bicycles. The
Orange and Blue Party does not address
these concerns at any point in its platform,
which is evidence of the party's lack of focus
and environmental consciousness.
I have fought for an eco-friendly campus
as director of environmental concerns for the
Inter-Residence Hall Association, and I can
assure you the Gator Party will do the same.

LOCAL GOVERNMENT

City moves to four-day workweek to save money


By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Staff Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org

Anyone with business at City
Hall this week should make sure
to plan around the city's new four-
day workweek.
Starting this week, city office
buildings including City Hall,
the Thomas Center and the Old
Library Building will be closed
on Fridays. Monday through
Thursday hours will be extended
from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Previously,
hours were 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
There were a number of reasons
for the change, city spokesman Bob
Woods said the first being a pos-
sible $90,000 savings per year in


heating and cooling costs.
The new schedule could also
be more convenient for working
residents, Woods said.
"A lot of young parents
want to spend quality time
with their families and
children."
Bob Woods
City spokesman

"If individuals need to obtain
a permit, for example, they would
be able to stop by City Hall prior
to getting to their own places of
employments" he said.
Opening the offices an hour
earlier might also take cars off


downtown roads during morning
and afternoon rush hours, he said.
They wouldn't be there at all on
Friday.
"Hopefully, our employees may
experience some gas savings,"
Woods said.
Some employees, though,
have expressed concern about the
schedule, which has already been
tested by a few city departments,
including Regional Transit System.
"Ten hours is a long day,"
Woods said. "A lot of young par-
ents want to spend quality time
with their families and children."
In response to concerns, he
said, individual departments have
offered options including work-
ing fewer hours for less pay or


telecommuting on Friday. Human
resources has also distributed a list
of local day cares, he said.
The four-day workweek could
soon be a possibility for Alachua
County as well, county spokesman
Mark Sexton said. The Board of
County Commissioners will dis-
cuss the possibility in October.
"Frankly, it's a much more dif-
ficult decision for the county than
it was for the city," Sexton said.
Many county employees share
buildings with officials such as
the supervisor of elections, tax
collector and property appraiser,
he said.
"They don't work for the
County Commission," he said.
"They're separately elected offi-


cers. We can't require them to close
down."
Commissioners are usually
quick to discuss the savings in en-
ergy costs, he said, but no dollar
amount-has been estimated.
Sexton said he was certain
county officials would be in con-
tact with the city before making a
decision.
Woods said the city would
re-evaluate its decision after a
year. Until then, he said he hoped
everyone would become easily ac-
customed to the schedule change.
"We're trying to be as sensitive
as we can to our employees and an-
ticipate as many issues as we can to
make this transition as smooth as
possible," he said.


Whitaker watches presidential debate with students in Reitz Union


RALLY, from page 1


plain the importance of this year's election.
"When (a butterfly) flaps its wings,. change
happens across the planet," he said. "Everything
is connected. We're all connected. That's what
Barack Obama is trying to tell us."
After his speech, Whitaker stayed to watch
the first presidential debate on the projector
screen in the ballroom.
As the debate started at about 9 p.m., the
event took on the appearance of a massive slum-
ber party, with students lounging on the floor
around the seats and snacking on pizza, chips
and soda. That is, except for the two uniformed
police officers at the front of the room.
Students weren't afraid to display their lean-
ings during the debate. They cheered when
Obama said he wanted to make college more
affordable and jeered when Republican candi-
date Sen. John McCain mentioned his status as a


prisoner of war in his closing remarks.
In a press conference before his speech,
Whitaker, who was on a two-day tour of Florida
schools, said students in Florida can swing this
year's election. President George W. Bush won
Florida by only 500 votes in 2000.
He also addressed criticism of politically ac-
tive celebrities.
"It would be a travesty if Barack Obama
doesn't become the president, and
Local I sat idly by in some room watch-
News ing it happen on a TV screen," he
said. "If people interpret that badly,
I don't know."
Asked if he would like to portray Obama in a
movie, Whitaker said, "I think Will Smith would
probably be good."
Leo Laurenceau, a UF psychology and po-
litical science senior, said he was surprised by
Whitaker's speech.
"He seemed a lot more soft-spoken than I
would have imagined but still a powerful speak-
er," Laurenceau said.

UF FOOTBALL

Rebels dash Gators' hopes for undefeated season


By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Staff Writer
edrexler@alligator.org

UF coach Urban Meyer thought
about kicking a field goal. But in
the end, he felt more comfortable
putting the ball in the hands of his
Heisman Trophy-winning quarter-
back.
On fourth and one from the
Rebels' 32-yard line, Tebow ran
the ball up the middle and got no-
where, sealing the 31-30 defeat for
the then-No. 4 Gators.
After the game, Tebow was
heartbroken but still passionate
about his team's future.
"I'm sorry. Extremely sorry,"
Tebow said. "We were looking for
an undefeated season. That was
my goal, something Florida's never
done here.
"But I promise you one thing:
A lot of good will come out of this.
You have never seen any player in
the entire country play as hard as I
will play the rest of the season, and
you will never see someone push
the rest of the team as hard as I
will push everybody the rest of the
season. You never see a team play
harder than we will the rest of the
season. God bless."
During Sunday's teleconfer-
ence,JJrban Meyer had confidence
his quarterback was not just talk-
ing.


"That's Tim," Meyer said. "And
everything he says, he does. So,
we're all anxious to get back to
work."
On the final play, Phillips
would have had to kick a 49-yard
field goal if the Gators chose to go
that route.
In the new AP Poll released
Sunday afternoon, UF (3-1, 1-1
Southeastern Conference) dropped
to No. 12. The Gators will face
Arkansas in Fayetteville on
Saturday.
The Gators were forced to score
late Saturday after what looked like
a game-tying touchdown run by
Percy Harvin went from 7 points
to 6. Mississippi's Kentrell Lockett
blocked the ensuing extra-point
attempt, challenging UF to score
with the game on the line for the
second time in five minutes.
Mississippi (3-2, 1-1 SEC) coach
Houston Nutt told his players ear-
lier in the week to focus on block-
ing field goals.
"Last Sunday, for example, we
said, Just keep staying in your gap
on extra points. You never know
when somebody might take a lazy
step,'" Nutt said. "And Kentrell
Lockett, boy, what a listener."
The Rebels' game-winning
play came on an 86-yard pass
from Jevan Snead to Shay Hodge

Emotional Tebow will not quit


or all of Tim Tebow's effort
in UF's loss to. Mississippi on
Saturday, his postgame perfor-
mance was more impressive.
Shortly after being stopped on a
game-ending fourth-and-one run,
Tebow stepped to the podium beneath
the south end zone stands with red-
dened eyes to answer questions from
the media.
His black T-shirt summed up his
demeanor. This was the last place he
wanted to be.
He fielded questions with patience,
even when reporters prodded him about
whether he'd be able to sleep at night or
what moments from the game would
haunt his dreams.
He pushed through it, sometimes

biting his lip or
grabbing the po-
dium to steady
himself.
When the
questions
stopped, Tebow
made his rea-
son for gritting
through the in-
terview dear: He
said he wanted to
make a statement


to UF fans.
Then, he took a long pause.
For a moment, I half expected him
to just walk away, but he took a deep
breath, fought off his emotions and the

Blocked PAT causes dispute


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

Coach Urban Meyer had a succinct ex-
planation for senior kicker Jonathan Phillips'
blocked extra point in the fourth quarter on
Saturday.
"It's illegal to hurdle a player on a field
goal," Meyer said. "I grabbed (the referee)
on my sideline early in the game and said,
'Listen, they're doing this.' He made a com-
ment, 'He went through the gap.' With the
way we teach field-goal protection, there
should be no gaps."
Meyer and offensive coordinator Dan
Mullen admitted they would have to watch
film of the game to see if Mississippi players
were actually doing the illegal act, but what
they believed they witnessed'should've been
penalized.
"It looked like they hurdled the protec-
tion," Meyer -said. "We'll find out if that's
what happened, and let them know it's


against NCAA rules."
Upon further review, there was some pen-
etration by Mississippi's players.
"One guy hurdled, one guy went through
the line," Meyer said during Sunday's tele-
conference. "But we did not protect it well."
Phillips entered
Saturday's game a per-
fect 4 for 4 on field goals.
Now, he's still perfect
after hitting a 32-yarder.
But the extra-point sec-
tion is no longer flawless.
According to some play-
Meyer ers, the kick, blocked by
Mississippi sophomore
defensive end Kentrell Lockett, wasn't a big
deal.
S "It didn't deflate us," cornerback Joe
HIaden said. "We weren't going to tie. We
were going to win. We just wanted to get the
ball back to the offense."
They probably wish they had worried
more now.

UF can still win SEC East


GATORS, from page 1


Don't fret, there were enough
Rebel whoops and hoots going
on a few hundred feet outside if
you didn't care for silence.
Now you probably want some
good news: The Gators (3-1, 1-1
Southeastern Conference) can
still win the SEC East if they win
out. The good part about being
in a competitive division is that
one game may not tarnish your
entire season.
Especially when the only.
two undefeated teams in your
division are Kentucky and
Vanderbilt.
Now the bad news: Urban
Meyer has developed a cliche
plan to win great defense, win
turnovers, score in the red zone
and have a good kicking game
- that was running like a well-
oiled Porsche. On Saturday, that
Porsche turned into a dunking
'83 Geo.
"It looked like they followed
our plan to win, and we didn't,"
UF offensive coordinator Dan
Mullen said.
The devastation was evident.
When Tebow was about to enter
the postgame conference room,
he peeked inside, and then
turned back. The door slammed
shut. He would enter a few min-
utes later with his normally blue
eyes swollen red.
"You heard me talk after the
Tennessee game about how well
we did with not putting our de-
fense in bad positions and not
turning it over," a weary Tebow
said. "We did that this game."
So now Arkansas gets to have
fun with a very upset Tebow this
week. Maybe this is just the kick


Gainesville's Superman needed.
"I already know our team
will come out there and practice
their ass off," center Maurkice
Pouncey said. "Who said we was
going to go undefeated this year?
That wasn't written down in no
law book or anything like that."
Regardless, for the first time
this season, UF didn't have ev-
erything go its way.
The Gators couldn't depend
on any interceptions care of
Tennessee quarterback Jonathan
Crompton to bail them out or
hope a Miami team would never
decide to throw more than a 10-
yard down-and-out rout.
"I want (this
game) to stay in
our hearts and
keep hurting,"
Football Tebow said.
If this game
seemed familiar, it
should have. Far too many times,
fans remember, the small aspects
of the game have cost the Gators
dearly.
Now, once again, Meyer is
faced with a team at a fork in
the road.
"It's not the adversity or it's
not injuries that you have to wor-
ry about happening," Meyer said
during Sunday's teleconference.
"Those are all going to happen.
Every year in the history of col-
lege football, it's all happened.
It's how a team, how a player,
how an athlete, how a program
reacts to it."
For an Arkansas team that just
got shellacked 52-10 by Texas, it's
going to be about two teams re-
acting Saturday.
And maybe this time, Foley
won't have to leave the field
early.

Turnovers costly in upset


,FOOTBALL, from page 14

on third and seven with just over five
minutes left. Saturday was Hodge's
daughter's birthday.
"The outside dude (Janoris Jenkins)
falls off most of the time," Hodge said.
"And he fell off, and I knew I was
-gonna be open. I ain't expect the safety
(Major Wright) to misjudge it that bad,
but when I seen him misjudge it bad I
(took) it to the house."
Neither Jenkins nor Wright were
anywhere near Hodge as he streaked
down the left sideline.
It started out as a normal day in The
Swamp: The Gators were up by 10 at
halftime, Percy Harvin and Tim Tebow
were connecting for big yards and the
momentum was all in their favor.
Then the fumbles started coming.
Four fumbles in the first 35 minutes
three of them going for turnovers
to Mississippi eventually led to the
Gators' downfall.


The Gators fumbled twice in their
first three plays of the second half
- Harvin and Tebow the guilty parties
- resulting in 10 points for the Rebels
and a 17-17 tie game.
UF had not turned the ball over all
season before Saturday.
"We just preach, 'No turnovers; no
turnovers, no turnovers' and 'Take care
of the football,'" of-
fensive coordinator
Dan Mullen said.
"We had five fum-
bles and lost three
of them. That's just
sloppy."
Other than the
fumbles, Meyer
Harvin blamed dropped
passes for a lack of offense.
"You count the number of times we
were open behind them and count the
number of times we dropped the ball,
it's probably 100-plus yards of offense
and a couple scores," Meyer said. "It's
surprising and real disappointing."


M IKE, from page 14


words poured out of him.
He said, "I'm sorry," something a player
like Tebow should never have to do. He
apologized for not leading the Gators to an
undefeated season and promised to bring
some good from the loss.
He was heartbroken, but in a flash, that
sadness was replaced with something else.
He leaned forward, and the intensity that
usually earns him those tough rushing yards
was back.
Tebow promised to play harder for the rest
of the season than any player ever and to push
his team to play harder than any team.
Then, he said, "God bless," and walked
out.
He might as well have said, "I'm going to
stiff-arm every man, woman and child in the
state of Arkansas next weekend."
The energy in the room was palpable, and
I didn't know whether to give Tebow a hug,
break something or punch someone sitting
near me.
It was big talk, but I'm inclined to believe it,
coming from Tebow.
The Gators' issue has never been, nor will it
be, a lack of effort on his part.
The question is how many of his team-
mates will follow his example.
The early indication is good for UF. The


team called a practice Sunday night, a highly
unusual occurrence.
If the Gators want to keep their national
title dreams alive, they'll have to run the table,
win the Southeastern Conference and get a
little lucky.
For that to happen, the offensive game plan
needs to change.
So far, the strategy for the offense has
been to make Tebow more of a manager, cut
back on his running and try to spread the ball
around.
I was a big proponent of that approach un-
til this weekend, but as Urban Meyer would
say, "It's time to ride that horse."
The offense is at its best when Tebow is
breaking off runs, using the rocker step and
launching passes. It's nearly impossible to
defend him. He is the centerpiece of the team
- more effective than Percy Harvin and the
other playmakers combined.
There are dangers to that, such as how the
system will suffer when Tebow is banged up,
but even when he was hurt last year, the of-
fense was usually good.
The defense was the problem, and now
that it seems more solid, I don't see a reason
to change the formula that worked for the of-
fense last year.
Put it all on Tebow, and let him carry the
team.
And if he fails?
Well, I don't want to be at that press confer-
ence.
