Bailout effects hard to predict, UF profs say


* U.S. HOUSE REJECTED
BILL ON MONDAY.

By EMILY BLAKE
Alligator Writer
The U.S. House of
Representatives rejected plans
Monday for what would have been
the largest government bailout since
the Great Depression.


Although it looked as if it might
be approved, the $700-billion bail-
out to save Wall Street was rejected
by the House in a 228 to 205 vote,
according to House records.
"The strange thing was everyone
woke up this morning thinking
the bill was going to pass," said
Jonathan Hamilton, chairman of
UF's economics department. "The
only way to rationalize that is ev-
erybody thought the bailout was


going to be at least a little bit of a
bad thing."
He said the bailout would have
used government
National money to purchase
News assets from strug-
gling financial
institutions, but some representa-
tives thought it would give relief to,
groups that didn't deserve it.
"It was going to reward some
people who were guilty of excessive


risk taking," Hamilton said.
It was not dear whether politi-
cians would try to patch up the
plan.
If a new bailout plan is-proposed,
it might give funds directly to banks,
which are more regulated than other
financial institutions and take fewer
financial risks, Hamilton said.
UF economics professor Steven
Slutsky said without an alternative
bailout plan, the economy would


continue to suffer.
"If nothing is done, the concern
is that it will spread and worsen any
downturn in the economy," Slutsky
said.
Without some form of govern-
ment intervention, banks might not
have enough money to hand out
loans, causing problems for busi-
nesses and people in need, he said:

Exhibit shows gross


side of human body


Display at UF until January


By CHRISTINA VILA
Alligator Contributing Writer

Take a tour through the nose.
Walk, climb, slide and crawl through
the digestive system. Enter through
a giant mouth into the "grossest"
exhibit of the human body.
With the opening of the Florida
Museum of Natural History's latest
exhibition on Saturday, visitors can
delve deeper into the human body in
an interactive playground for adults
and children alike.
"Grossology: The (Impolite)
Science of the Human Body" opened
Saturday. The exhibit is based on the
bestselling book "Grossology," writ-
ten by Sylvia Branzei. Highly color-

ful, noisy and, in some cases, totally
rude, it offers something different to
every visitor, taking things that are
usually taboo and making them fun.
"It's sort of like walking into a
cartoon world, a carnival."
Douglas Noble
head of exhibits and public programs
at the museum

One visitor, Suzanne Stapleton,
brought her children to the museum
to see the butterflies. After waiting
more than 45 minutes in line and
at the insistence of her two boys,

that eligibility was determined by regional

STUDENT LIFE

UF Hillel holds services


By MELISSA MILCHMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF Hillel will hold services in
the Reitz Union on Tuesday and
Wednesday to observe the Jewish High
Holy Days, which began this week with
Rosh Hashana.
The holiday began on Monday night
and ends Wednesday night.
"It's the Jewish New Year, but it's
not a party holiday," said Corey Smith,
the program director at UF Hillel. "It's a
time to reflect on the past year and look
forward to the upcoming year."
Rosh Hashana is the first of the
Jewish High Holy Days, which also
include Yom Kippur.
According to the UF Hillel Web site,
services on Tuesday will begin at 10
a.m.
Smith said the center is expecting
about 700 people for services and about
500 people for dinner.
Students usually attend the services,.
but they are open to everyone, said
Rabbi Yoni Kaiser-Blueth, the associate
director of Jewish student life.


Students with schedule conflicts are
welcome to come in and out of services,
but Kaiser-Blueth hopes that everyone
who attends will be able to stay for a
period of time that will allow the ser-
vices to be meaningful to them.
"It's a time to reflect on the
past year and look forward to
the upcoming year."
Corey Smith
UF Hillel program director

Naomi Fireman, the vice president of
communications of the Jewish Student
Union, said she is glad UF Hillel puts
on these services.
There is a large population of Jewish
students at UF, and even though they
may not attend the center's services
and events regularly, they might be
looking for a place to go on the High
Holy Days, she said.
"People at Hillel are extremely
warm and welcoming," Fireman said.
"It's the only other place I'd want to be
on Rosh Hashana besides home."


Professor known for humor


By MORGAN COLLINS
Alligator Writer

UF College of Medicine professor James
William Doyle is not only remembered as a
successful educator and doctor of ophthal-
mology, but also as an amateur comedian.
Doyle, 53, died Wednesday after suffer-
ing from a long-term neuromuscular wast-
ing disease that weakened his muscles.
His colleague, Dr. Sonal Tuli, an assistant
professor and program director for the
ophthalmology department, said Doyle
was a jokester who loved to make people
laugh.
"He was always such a lighthearted
person," Tuli said. "He always had a joke
of the day."
Tuli knew Doyle for seven years and
worked with him in the eye clinic at
Shands at UF and at the Malcom Randall
Veterans Affairs Medical Center.
"Patients loved him," she said. "They
thought he was the best."


She said doctors diagnosed him with
the disease two years ago, and after losing
strength in his arms and hands, Doyle left
his clinical work and went on disability
leave.
Still, she said, he continued to come
in whenever he had the energy to teach.
Doyle's final lec-
U F ture was about two
Administration weeks before his
death.
He entered the
lecture hall in a wheelchair. Before the
period ended, he had to stop because he
had trouble breathing and could not speak
much longer.
Tuli said people in the department were
amazed at his ability to stay upbeat.
Doyle kept telling jokes even in the final
weeks of his illness, Tulsi said. She recalled
one of the last times he spoke to her, giving
her one last joke about a UF alumnus who
walked into a Florida State University bar.
Tuli said he was a "funny guy" and will
be missed.

Half-cent sales tax to be placed on Nov. 4 ballot


clmll MiiClln/ nlIlt:a LUI
Gainesville Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan speaks at a special joint meeting of the city and county commis-
sions about the half-cent sales tax initiative Monday afternoon.


By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Staff Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org

An extra half-cent sales tax
could soon go toward parks and
land conservation in Alachua
County.
The tax, which will be on the
Nov. 4 ballot, would increase
sales tax to 6.75 percent and last
for two years, and it is expected
to raise about $40 million.
Half of the revenue would go
to acquiring land for conserva-
tion, while the other half would
go to improvements of parks and
recreation facilities.
Robert Hutchinson, ex-
ecutive director of the Alachua
Conservation Trust, said the pre-
sentation gave commissioners a
chance to raise any serious ques-
tions before the vote on Nov. 4.
"The worst thing is when an
independent commissioner comes
out against it and starts publicly
opposing it," Hutchinson said.
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan
pointed out errors within the pre-
sentation but spoke in favor of the
initiative.
"Even though we have some
problems in our economy and


so on, I hope people will see that
investing in children and our
environment is a good idea even
when times are tough," Hanrahan
said.
"Even though we have
some problems in our
economy and so on, I

Pegeen Hanrahan
Gainesville mayor

Although some argue against
a tax increase, especially in tough
economic times, Hutchinson said
the group was "cautiously opti-
mistic" about the referendum's
chances.
"Who likes taxes?" Hutchinson
said. "But you have to raise it
somehow."
Similar taxes benefiting land
conservation were on the ballot
in 2000, when it passed, and 2004,
when it did not, Hutchinson said.


UF student starts Scrabble society


* FOUNDER SAID HE WANTS TO
BREAK A WORLD RECORD.

By LAUREN GOLD
Alligator Contributing Writer

A UF sophomore hopes to win a
triple-word score with a new club on
campus.
Nathaniel Shull," 19, created the
Student Scrabble Society, a UF student
club devoted to the popular board
game Scrabble.
The Student Scrabble Society will
hold its first meeting tonight at 8 p.m.
in the entrance of Pugh Hall.
Shull said he has played the game
since he was a child with family and
friends, and when he found out there
was no club at UF, he decided to make
one.
"The club brings about something
new," he said. "It's an enjoyable activ-
ity."
Scrabble is a word game in which


players score points by creating words
from lettered tiles on a game board,
according to the official Scrabble Web
site.
Shull said one of the club's long-
term goals is to break the Guinness
World Record for Most Simultaneous
Games of Scrabble.
According to the
Student Guinness World Records
Life Web site, the record
for the most games of
Scrabble played at once
was 521 games by 1,042 participants at
Singapore schools in 2006.
"I'd like to see this world record be
broken, but you have to start small,"
Shull said.
Setting a new record is not feasible
right now, but it could happen eventu-
ally if more people get involved in the
club, he said.
Kristie Serrano, a UF freshman and
club treasurer, said she wants to help
break the record someday, but she-


wants the Student Scrabble Society to
do community service first.
The Student Scrabble Society set
a goal to raise $400 for Metropolitan
Ministries, a homeless shelter in
Tampa, Serrano said.
Chelsea Hetelson, a UF English
junior, loves to play Scrabble on the
weekends with her roommates and is
excited to join the dub.
"It's a good idea because it's not
just a silly game," she said. "It's chal-
lenging. You can learn things."
Hetelson said she wants to help
break the record, and the club should
attempt it if enough students express
interest.
Shull said the Student Scrabble
Society plans to host a game in
Turlington Plaza or on the Plaza of
the Americas to attract potential mem-
bers.
"I know there are so many people.
interested, and it's my job to get to
these people," Shull said.

Bar holds Guitar Hero contest


* PRIZES INCLUDED A FENDER GUITAR
AND CONCERT TICKETS.

By MAGGIE CUNNINGHAM
Alligator Contributing Writer

Clusters of people crowded the front sidewalk of
1982 Bar Sunday afternoon waiting to register for the
Guitar Hero tournament.
The crowd consisted mostly of teenage boys
dressed in rock 'n' roll gear that included fedoras,
blazers and white gloves.
Seventeen participants competed in head-to-head
matches on 1982's stage. The tournament was double-
elimination, which meant competitors were out after
two losses.
First prize was a Fender guitar and amp package
donated by Lipham Music. Rock station 100.5 The
Buzz provided a pair of concert tickets for second
prize. Third prize was a GameStop voucher for a
copy of Rock Band 2. Fourth and fifth prize were-gift


certificates for 1982.
Cory Klein, 18, won first place by playing previ-
ously undefeated Brady Wynn, 20, in the finals and
winning two songs in a row.
Wynn has been playing Guitar Hero for about two
years and won first place in a different competition
last spring. He said he likes losing himself in the mo-
ment when he plays.
"I feel like I'm a rock star," he
Around said. "It's a good way for me to
Gainesville unwind."
Because he had not lost a match
all night, Wynn said he felt pretty confident going
into the final round. Tight competition and two dif-
ficult songs in the final round, "The Way It Ends" by
Prototype and "She Bangs the Drums" by The Stone
Roses, led to Wynn's defeat and Klein's win of the
Fender package.
"I was cool with it because I got concert tickets,"
Wynn said.
Wynn chose tickets to see the band Shiny Toy Guns
in Jacksonville next month.

Grossology explains inner

workings of bodily functions


G ROSS, from page 1

Stapleton visited the exhibit.
She liked how the hands-on
activities kept children en-
tertained.
For 6-year-old Wyatt
Dyke, it was all about the
snot display.
He said he liked it best
because it grossed his mom
out. He also liked the tooting
station that explained why
people fart.
The exhibit is not reserved
for children. People over the
age of six can still learn new
information about their bod-
ies.
Mike Arena, a UF student,
learned that the nostrils take
turns inhaling, switching
sides every three to four
hours from one of the signs
around the room.
The exhibit even provided
an answer to an intriguing
question: Why do women


usually have to wait longer
for the bathroom than men?
"Grossology" showed that it
takes women an average of
79 seconds to use the bath-
room. On the other hand,
men only take an average of
45 seconds.
Douglas Noble, the head
of exhibits
On and public
Campus programs at
the museum,
described the
exhibition as wildly popular.
"Grossology" has traveled to
over 75 major museums in
the U.S. and abroad.
Noble said that it is highly
engaging and interactive, in
spite of being very child-ori-
ented.
"It's sort of like walking
into a cartoon world, a carni-
val," Noble said. "Instead of
playing games of chance for
a stuffed dog, you walk away
more informed about your
body and how it works."

Slugfest

Vice presidential

debate may get ugly
With the McBama undercard bout out of the way, we
can settle into our beer-stained, fifth-hand couches
with a pint and a bowl of Cheetos to plunge ourselves
into Thursday's vice presidential debate. We think it's going to
be a barn burner.
The vice presidential debate has us reminiscing about a
show we haven't seen since our teens.
"Celebrity Deathmatch" aired on MTV when it had already
abandoned music for the most part, but had yet to do away
with our beloved teenage fart humor "The Tom Green
Show" in favor of more sophisticated programs like "Date
My Mom" and "From G's to Gents".
The only difference is that if you had-seen our two upcom-
ing combatants in the "Deathmatch" ring 10 years ago, you
would've thought former host of "The Price is Right" Bob
Barker was about to go toe-to-toe with chick-flick veteran Diane
Keaton, Claymation style.
Don't worry, though. Our current scrappers aren't battling
anywhere near death. We just like to hype it up because we're
excited.
The match-up of these potential vice presidents presents a
few intriguing storylines.
Duking it out for the Republicans is eyewear-fashion diva
and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
Unlike her running mate, she has the youth card on her side,
but, similar to Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack
Obama, her less-than-plentiful political experience has been
called into question repeatedly.
This hockey mom is more than ready to drop the gloves. The
only problem with knockout punches is, if they miss, you look
incredibly off-balance and awkward that is, if your opponent
doesn't counter and knock you into the sixth row of the crowd.
Her opponent is long-time Sen. Joe Biden. When we say
long-time, we mean it: Biden has been in Congress for 35 years,
while Palin has only been alive for 44 years.
Given his tenure, no one has criticized Biden's political expe-
rience since he was added to Obama's ticket.
The potential problem with Biden is his long-winded, lop-
ing style. He has been known to lull crowds to sleep with his
rambling testimonies, which could sway the judges' scorecards
in his opponent's favor.
That's why you never want to leave it in the hands of the
judges. There's no way to tell how they'll score the bout.
Palin's short career has gotten about as much bad publicity
as any of Britney Spears' 2007 media mishaps.
Since he was announced as Obama's running mate, Biden,
for the most part, has been able to campaign under the radar,
which is a plus for a man who has been knocked for putting his
foot and then some into his mouth.
In January of last year, Biden was vying for the democratic
presidential nomination against his current running mate. At
the time, Biden, referring to Obama, said, "I mean, you got the
first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright
and dean and a nice-looking guy, I mean, that's a storybook,
man."
Before their debate, Biden should be sure to touch gloves
with Palin to thank her for taking such a commanding hold
of the spotlight because if she hadn't, Biden easily could've
slashed the tires of his own campaign.
We can't wait to see how this match plays out. We've got a
seasoned vet who's prone to buffoonish comments squaring off
against a newcomer whose biggest headline to date has been
about her glasses.
Ready your finger foods America this should be a good
one.

Ignorant electorate bound for failure


M any of you may be preparing to skip the first
election in which you are eligible to vote.
Congratulations, it's quite the milestone in, your
life of civic irresponsibility. May I suggest a way to celebrate
this momentous occasion? Turn on CNN on election night,
and every time Wolf Blitzer or one of his minions says the
phrase "best political team on television," take a drink.
You'll be plastered, hungover and sober again well before
anyone knows who won Florida.
What if you aren't going to skip the election and have
actually decided to vote? If we had three parties to select
from, who would you choose?
Hypothetically, your choices are an adulterous cripple;
a vegetarian, author and war hero; and a raging alcoholic,
all up for election. Most of you would select the alcoholic,
simply because you can relate to him. Our nation, on the
other hand, would undoubtedly choose the war hero. In
this analogy, our nation would have elected Adolf Hitler.
The losers would have been Franklin Delano Roosevelt and
Winston Churchill.
There's no reason this scenario cannot or will not happen
here in the United States. We suffer from the same affliction
the Germans had 80 years ago: an electorate of mediocre
intelligence short-sighted and self-interested. "The best
argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation
with the average voter," Churchill once quipped.
The late George Carlin said, "Think of how stupid the
average person is and realize half of them are stupider than
that."
The average intelligence of this nation, truly of almost
any nation, is mediocre or slightly above.
So who do people elect as their leaders? People of
slightly better than mediocre intelligence, because that is
who they can relate to.
John Kerry lost because he's incoherent while sober.
How the hell could we talk to him after a few rounds?


Wes Hunt Al Gore lost by wearing suits and
Speaking Out giving PowerPoint lectures while
Dubya cleared brush in his boots
and cowboy hat. Bill Clinton won by
feeling your pain. Bob Dole lost by speaking in the third
person. George H.W. Bush lost by not knowing that it's the
economy, stupid. And Ronald Reagan was "The Gipper,"
everyone's favorite grandpa. Even by some of his own ad-
visers' accounts, he wasn't that bright, but damn it, he was
"The Gipper."
Do you think Americans really want to vote someone
smarter than themselves into leadership roles? Why do you
think politicians spend so much time trying to convince us
they are just like us?
What demographic, then, ultimately selects our leaders?
Eighteen to 30-year-olds? The only national campaigns that
hinge on our demographic are kicked off during the com-
mercial breaks of every Super Bowl.
How about the 30- to 50-year-old crowd? Maybe.
Ultimately, the heart of the American workforce is too wor-
ried about paying for their children's college education,
their own retirement, credit-card debts, the mortgage they
shouldn't have taken out with the Lehman Brothers and the
Jones' new lawn mower.
People over the age of 50 decide elections. People who
really have no stake in there of the nation beyond the
next two to three, maybe four, presidents.
Those of us with an understanding of the way the world
is changing, where the world is going and what our nation
needs to get there don't vote. We suffer the choices of the
less informed and the antiquated.
There is a reason why Ted Stevens won Senate re-election
after revealing his utter ignorance by declaring the Internet
is "not a big truck. It's a series of tubes." The people voting
- the old and the stupid also think that the Internet is a
series of tubes.
Wes Hunt is a history senior.


The views expressed here are not necessarily those of the Alligator.

Letters to the Editor
Drinking policy should apply to everyone
As a recent alumna coming back to UF
to tailgate, I was caught off guard by a new
campus rule. While playing beer pong with
friends, we were accosted by two members of
the University Police Department who said
we had to break up the game immediately,
wrote down all our names, took our pictures
and said if we were caught again they could
arrest us for trespassing.
Drinking games are not allowed on cam-
pus because they promote rapid consump-
tion of alcohol, the officers said. Even if we
were to fill the cups with water or soda to
play, beer pong and flip cup would not be
permitted. According to the two UPD of-
ficers, this rule was put in place last year
only to be enforced this year. While browsing
the Web after the game, I found out this was
passed by the Board of Trustees and added
to the Student Conduct Code this past week,
not last year as the officers had said.
A handle of liquor can be considered a
common-source container, and almost any-
thing can be turned into a rapid-consumption
drinking game. I believe we were targeted
because of our age. The older folks next to
us were drinking heavily while playing corn-
hole, and they were clearly more intoxicated
than .us.
When pointed out to the officer, they
replied that cornhole is a lawn game and
still allowed on campus. Perhaps instead of
trying to regulate how tailgaters drink, UPD
should be on the lookout for those both old
and young who have chosen to imbibe too
much.

Fans harbor tradition, not stadium
Yankee Stadium in its current state is not
the same place where Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig
and Mickey Mantle played. The stadium was
remodeled in 1974.
Before that time there was no Monument
Park because the monuments were on the
field. Home plate was moved 20 feet forward
and the outfield walls were moved in. The
stadium looked nothing like it had in the
past, and many people had the same reac-
tions that fans now have about the stadium
changing.
The fans are the ones who keep tradition,
even though the team will be at another park
across the street. Also, George Steinbrenner,
not Hank Steinbrenner, has been fighting for
a new stadium since the 1980s. As much as
you don't like some of the things Hank says,
he had nothing to do with the building of the
new stadium it was all George.

Orange and Blue is green
Michelle Isgut claimed the Gator Party is
the party of sustainability. Is this the same
party that purchased 16 recycling bins at the
mind-boggling price of $1,000 each? Is this
the same party that rejected a referendum
that was supported by 80 percent of the
student body to establish an independent
advisory committee for socially responsible
investing?


The Gator Party is as much the party
of true sustainability as it is of responsibly
spending Student Government's $13 million
budget.
The Orange and Blue Party is the only
party that supports a bicyclist's bill of rights
and responsibilities, an advisory committee
on socially responsible investing and a more
effective means of advertising campus events
on the Internet, instead of wasting thousands
of dollars on fliers that litter our campus.
I encourage every student to visit
orangeandblueparty.com and access our
open platform.
Then ask yourself: Which is the true party
of sustainability?
Stephen Holmgren
2LS

Environmentalism not a partisan issue
Unlike Michelle Isgut, I am not a Gator
Party senator, but I am an environmentalist
and, until last year, I was an undergraduate
at UF. Her shots at the Orange and Blue Party
for its environmental agenda are unfair.
When I look at the people running the
Orange and Blue Party, I see many of the
same faces that campaigned tirelessly for the
sustainability fee that was tied to credit hours.
I see the same leaders who first brought up
the issue of too few recycling bins. And I see
many of the same environmentalists I saw at
the sustainability meetings.
Orange and Blue Party leaders may not
have a gimmicky environmental point on the
platform, but its leaders have in various
groups produced real results in the past.
Environmentalism is a movement too
large and too important to be claimed by


only one party.

Watermelon Bust waste of food, money
The annual Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity
philanthropy event, the Watermelon Bust, is a
disgrace to those who are involved in service
activities in their community, and it's disgust-
ing to see it mentioned in this paper.
Did none of the spectators at the event
have enough common sense to see the prob-
lem with destroying fruit in order to collect
food for the local food pantry? Did no one
question why all the money spent to host the
event wasn't just donated to the Gainesville
Harvest, the event's so-called "beneficiary"?
The reason none of the Greek organiza-
tions do this is because they aren't truly inter-
ested in their community.
While service would involve the donation
of time and effort to a cause, their philan-
thropy is only a donation of money or goods,
which can be raised through ridiculous so-
cial events, such as Kappa Kappa Gamma's
wing-eating contest or Sigma Phi Epsilon's
"Surf Frenzy."
These philanthropic events serve only as
a front to cover up the constant boozing and
partying that are central to the Greek system
with the idea that they are doing a service to
the community. Such hypocrisy should not
be glamorized. Hopefully in the future, this
paper will focus on events that are genuinely
about community involvement.

UF deals with loss in Sunday practice

By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
,-" pkegler@alligator.org

Talk remained all about Mississippi at Urban Meyer's
Monday morning press conference.
Despite the fact that No. 12 UF's (3-1, 1-1 Southeastern
Conference) loss to Mississippi was two days prior, and
even though the Gators go on the road to play unranked
Arkansas (2-2, 0-1 SEC) on Saturday, it's clear this week's
main focus will be how the Gators respond to their 31-30 .
loss. .
Meyer called an emergency team practice Sunday "
night, a time the team usually has off, in order to try and
move forward as quickly as possible.
"We all had to get around those players," he said,
"and put closure to a bad day."
Players were not made available for comment on
Monday. 7
Meyer also held a team meeting, the details of which .
he refused to disclose, but it was clear the attempt was
to clear the air.
"We all had to get around those players
and put closure to a bad day."
Urban Meyer
UF football coach ,-.'.


"The first thing (you do after a loss) is you feel sorry
for yourself," he said. "Second thing is you point a fin-
ger at someone. That's everywhere. That's from Little
League to ... UF football."
It's too soon to tell how well the team will fare after
this test.
Meyer has seen teams that dealt well with adversity,
mentioning the 1996 and 2006 national champion UF
teanas well as his 2004 Utah team, which finished
its season 12-0. He said it's not a matter of whether a
team will deal with setbacks, but how well they do af-
terwards.
"Because a guy throws a helmet or kicks the dirt
and says, 'Doggone it', that doesn't make him angry,"
he said. "If you play with a little chip on your shoulder,
if you pay great attention to detail, if you come together
- that's how you make those statements."

Gators finally find their groove on offense


* UF SCORED SEVEN GOALS INSIDE
THE PENALTY BOX THIS WEEKEND.

By BOBBY CALLOVI
Alligator Writer
bcallovi@alligator.org

When a team scores seven goals in one
weekend, it's clear the offense is doing
something right.
For the No. 16 Gators, that something
has been getting more people in the penalty
box.
"When you have four or five people in


the box, you're bound to have someone
open or at least have some confusion and
chaos," UF coach Becky Burleigh said.
This was evident as all seven of the
scores occurred from inside of the box, and
multiple were on second chances.
The offense finally started to look in
sync this past weekend, and it came at the
perfect time as the Gators began conference
play.
Burleigh has expressed displeasure with
UF's attack for most of the season. But af-
ter this weekend, the Gators' coach tossed
a few praises to the team's recent scoring


onslaught.
"We have been keeping a stat for certain
positions for the number of times they
-. get in the box, and since
we have been keeping
the stat, they have been
real accountable to it,"
Soccer Burleigh said. "That type
of accountability has
helped us."
Besides the newfound responsibil-
ity shown in the wins against Georgia and
Tennessee, the offense received a boost
SEE SOCCER, PAGE 16


Tebow's story

still to be told

As I sat and watched Tim
Tebow speak, his eyes
bloodshot and his lips
quivering in Saturday's postgame
press conference, I thought this
would likely be the defining mo-
ment of his season.
I know, you'll say Tebow has
already scored a national cham-
pionship ring and a Heisman
Trophy in his first two years, but
that doesn't matter right now.
. What does matter is that Tebow
won that national championship
as a backup albeit an extremely
important one and earned that
Heisman as
the quar-
terback of
a four-loss
team.
Whatalso
matters is
Karl Hyppolite that Tebow
Hy-Lite Reels is just 12-5
khyppolite@alligator.org in his first 17
games as a
starter, not much more impressive
than the maligned Chris Leak's
10-7 record through his first 17
starts.
And that was with Tebow hav-
ing a much better coach in Urban
Meyer and arguably more skill
surrounding him.
Now, this isn't to imply that
Leak was better or even as good
as Tebow. There's no questioning
that Tebow is a better talent.
The question that does remain
after Saturday's embarrassing loss
to Mississippi is this: How will
Tebow's story read when it's all
said and done, and he hangs up
the orange and blue? "
I'm inclined to believe Tebow
when he says he's going to push
himself and his teammates harder
than any player in the country.
He's that passionate, and that il-
lustrates one of the key differences
between Tebow and his predeces-
sor.
Leak was a quieter, more cere-
bral player who wouldn't try to
use this loss as a rallying cry for
his teammates.

Meyer not the only one with issues on new clock rules


* STEVE SPURRIER AND LES
MILES HAVE COMPLAINED.

By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

Turns out Urban Meyer is not
the only coach fed up by the clock
rules.
The Gators' coach expressed
his displeasure about the new


40-second play clock following
the Tennessee game, and other
Southeastern Conference coaches
have shown they have similar re-
sentment.
NCAA statistics show the aver-
age length of a game this season is
3 hours and 9 minutes, 13 minutes
shorter than the average contest
last season.
UF has had an average of 121
plays on offense and defense com-
bined per game so far this season


compared to a national average of
143 a year ago.
LSU coach Les
Miles said his
team's game against
Auburn on Sept. 20
Football a 26-21 fourth-
quarter victory for
his team an hour earlier than
normal.
Shorter games give teams less
of a chance to distinguish who is
better because of the fewer plays,


Miles said.
Miles also added fewer come-
backs will occur because there
will not be as much time to make
adjustments late in games.
The new rules were instituted
to keep games shorter, making it
easier on television companies that
hold big contracts to show them,
Miles said.
While understanding the mon-
ey tied to such contracts, he does
not enjoy this negative impact it


has had on the game.
"Maybe it doesn't need to be
formatted for TV, and if they take
that criteria out of it," he !aid,
"then it would be whatever is best
for college football."
South Carolina coach Steve
Spurrier doesn't think coaches will
have an easy time getting things
changed after the season.
"As everyone knows/' he said,
"television tells us what to do,*Bxd
they pay the bills."


Multiple injuries causing trouble for Gators' offensive line

Team's travels cause headaches

Mary Wise's weekend was filled with motor-
cycles and booked hotels.
When the No. 10 Gators arrived in Fayetteville,
Ark., on Thursday, they were surprised to learn
their match against the Razorbacks just happened
to coincide with the city's annual Bikes, Blues &
BBQ festival.
Wise was shocked to learn the event attracts
more than 400,000 leather-clad bikers to the city.
"It added a little excitement to the weekend,"
she joked Monday.
As if that wasn't enough fun for one road trip,
UF still had the unenviable task of finding a hotel in
Oxford, Miss., the same weekend as a presidential
debate.
"Luckily we got to go to Oxford the one week-
end that there are no hotels to be found in the entire
state," Wise said with a laugh. "It became a much
longer road trip than we expected."
Wise said sophomore Callie Rivers is feeling bet-
ter a day after leaving the Gators' match against the
Rebels during the first set with a stomach illness.
"We kind of joked later that with what that road


trip was like, the fact that we only had one go down
was pretty good," she said.
As the weeks march on, more and more new
faces are showing up on the court most recently,
outside hitter Cassandra Anderson.
Anderson got a chance to play in the absence of
the ailing Rivers.
S~- -- Though she finished the
match with only a single tally
on the stat sheet (one kill), Wise
has high hopes for the athletic
freshman.
"Matt DeLancey, our strength
coach, will tell you she's the
best jumper that we have ever
Rivers had," she said. "What we want
Cassandra to be is that high-fly-
ing fast player."
Wise also reiterated her displeasure with the
way Mississippi middle blockers redirected balls
over the net Sunday.
She still isn't sure why an obviously illegal play
was being allowed during the match.
"The way that I understand the rule is that if
you hold the ball and redirect it, that's illegal," she
said. "It sure looked to me like some of those balls
were being redirected."

When UF's season began, the offensive line
looked to be one of the strongest units on the
field.
You wouldn't know it four games into the
season.
Multiple injuries to the line means quar-
terback Tim Tebow is being hurried and pres-
sured more than usual with fewer defenders
rushing him, causing overthrown and under-
thrown passes and short-yardage scrambles.
Fifth-year senior left guard .Jim Tartt rein-
jured his shoulder in No. 12 UF's 31-30 loss
to Mississippi on Saturday, and Gators coach
Urban Meyer lists him as "very ques-onable,
probably doubtful" for this weekends game
at Arkansas.
Tartt has had four total shoulder surgeries,
three of them on one shoulder.
"It's just wear and tear," Meyer said. "Poor
guy, he's as tough a human being as there is,
but he's had three surgeries on one shoulder.
Jim's good for a week, and then he's off for a
week."
After missing the first two games of the
season, Tartt started in the Gators' matchup at
Tennessee on Sept. 20 and against Mississippi.
Meyer had counted on the team captain to be
available when Southeastern Conference play
began, but now Meyer realizes he might not be
able to rely on Tartt.
"I hate to say that, but there's probably
some truth to that," Meyer said.
Tartt is not done for the season, Meyer
said.


KARL, from page 14


But once again that leads me
to ask if that passion will lead to
a national championship with
Tebow as the starter.
From the moment he stepped
onto campus in January 2006,
the expectation was that he was
destined to bring the Gators
back to the championship
heights they hadn't tasted in 10
years instead of Superman,
maybe Tim should be nick-
named "Neo." And the fairy
tale played to form for that first
season.
But no story is worth reading
unless there is a struggle that
defines the main character.
And as UF's quarterback
- and more importantly as
the program's "Neo" the
struggle is taking place right


Backup left guard Marcus Gilbert sprained
his ankle on Saturday and is also "very ques-
tionable" for the Arkansas game, and Maurice
Hurt is still out with shoulder and neck sting-
ers. What's left is a thinner offensive line than
Meyer would like.
"The offensive line is a strength of our pro-
gram," Meyer said. "When you take three out,
, it's difficult. ...That's why you recruit. Get a
little depth going."
"There's a big difference as far
leadership, experience, which is
awful high in this league."
Urban Meyer
UF football coach

The Gators have sophomore Carl Johnson,
redshirt freshman James Wilson and even Ron
Wilson ready to step in on offensive line.
True freshman David Young would be next
on the list, but using him would require taking
away what is likely a redshirt season for him.
Meyer even discussed moving true fresh-
man Matt Patchan, who has been playing
extensively on the defensive line, to the other
side of the ball.
However, Meyer admitted the team b-
ably could not afford to do that.
Still, in the Mississippi game, sophomore
right guard Mike Pouncey liked.what he saw
from Gilbert and Johnson.
"Gilbert came in and filled the role,"
Pouncey said. "He got hurt, Carl Johnson
came in. He finally got his chance to step on
the field. He played real good."


before our eyes.
That struggle may be why
those tears were welling up in
Tebow's eyes on Saturday, as
much as the lost opportunity
for an undefeated season and
the embarrassment of a home
loss to the Rebels.
His popularity already rivals
that of. Danny Wuerffel and
Steve Spurrier, but as the guy
who is going to continue their
tradition, things haven't gone
according to plan.
And that begs another
question. If Tim doesn't win
a national championship as a
starter, will his tenure be con- 4
sidered a disappointment? Is
that fair?
Only time will tell.
But as Tebow stood there
with bloodshot eyes, I was
sure how he would answer that
question even if I don't know
the climax of his story.

UF's 'plan to win' not accomplished Saturday; LSU game set for 8 p.m.


GATORS, from page 14

PLAft FAILS: Meyer continu-
ally reiterates his plan to win
each week, which consists of five
key parts play great defense,
win the turnover battle, red-zone
efficiency, win kicking game and
third-down efficiency. The Gators
failed in all but red-zone efficiency
(three touchdowns and one field
goal on four trips).


* The defense gave up 325 yards
Saturday, including 140 on the
ground. There were 11 missed
tackles, according to Meyer.
* UF lost the turnover battle, 3-1,
including fumbles on back-to-back
drives to start the second half.
* Meyer said the kicking game
accomplished only two of 10 un-
specified goals. UF had a potential
game-tying PAT blocked.
* The Gators converted an abys-
mal 9 percent of third downs, go-


ing 1 for 11. He said the toughest
part was they kept getting stuck in
third-and-long.


Foo all


ARKANSAS TALK:
Only one ques-
tion was asked of
Meyer about the
Razorbacks, but he


said he was con-
cerned with their passing attack
on offense.
"They are throw-oriented right
now, and on defense they are very


capable," Meyer said.
The Razorbacks lost two run-
ning backs Darren McFadden
and Felix Jones to the first round
of the NFL Draft back in April.
Both were on display when UF
faced Arkansas in the 2006 SEC
Championship Game.
INJURIES STACKING UP: After start-
"ing middle linebacker Brandon
Spikes, the linebacker corps is
still dealing with injuries. Starter
Dustin Doe continues to play


through a double hernia, accord-
ing to Meyer, and key reserve Ryan
Stamper did not play Saturday due
to an ankle sprain. On the offensive
side of the ball, Emmanuel Moody
has a high ankle sprain and is also
"very questionable." Meyer said
tight end Aaron Hernandez is in a
boot, but "should be fine."
LSU TIME SET: The Oct. 11 UF-LSU
game will kick off at 8 p.m. in The
Swamp and will be televised on
CBS.


Abdullah gets back into scoring rhythm with two goals against Tennessee


SOCCER, from page 14

from senior midfielder Ameera Abdullah.
Abdullah entered the season as the
Gators' most proven offensive threat. She
showed this by scoring in the opening
match at Colorado, but has failed to cross
the goal line again until putting two in the
net against the Volunteers.
For most of the match against Tennessee,

she had a defender whose main purpose
was to mark her.
"Tennessee decided to man-on-man her,
and I would like every team to man-on-man
her if she is going to do that," Burleigh said.
While one of the team's captains finally
had the big game expected of her, another
struggled for the first time this year.
Junior defender Lauren Hyde overcom-
mitted herself a few times and got beat on a
couple of attacks Sunday.
One of the times she got beat she shoved


a Volunteers player in the back while in the
penalty box, which result-
ed in a penalty kick and
the only goal for them.
The mistakes were
very out of character for
the All-American, who
has been the main reason
for the strong play of the
Abdullah young defense early in the
season.
"There are times when she probably tries


to do a little too much because she is with a
little bit of an inexperienced backline com-
pared to last year, so maybe she tries to take
on more responsibility," Burleigh said.
"But she has plenty of times saved us in
tight situations."
One of those plays came on Sunday.
Despite playing poorly, she flashed a
moment of brilliance by recovering from
getting beaten, saving a shot on the empty
net and preserving the 1-0 Gators' lead at
the time.
