Chomp the Vote less visible than past years


* DIRECTOR SAYS REGISTRATION
FOCUSES ON LAST-MINUTE EFFORTS.

By LAUREN BAKER
Alligator Writer
Ibaker@alligator.org

Chomp the Vote, the Student Government-
funded, non-partisan organization responsible
for mobilizing student voters, has established


less of an on-campus presence this fall than in
past years.
But Executive Director Brett Roth said it's
all part of his plan for the semester, which
focuses on registering students during the last
week before the voter registration deadline for
the presidential election. -
And while Roth faces criticism from a
former director of the organization for hav-
ing less experience with Chomp the Vote than
another applicant who came out of the orga-


nization, Student Body President Kevin Reilly
maintains his selection of Roth was based on
this plan of action a plan that relies greatly
on text-messaged remind-
Student ers and other alternative
Government communication methods.
After being appointed
in July, Roth spent his summer interning
with the Republican National Committee in
Washington, D.C.
He said his absence did not take a negative


toll on Chomp the Vote's efforts.
Prior to his directorship, Roth served as
Greek Affairs director. He was chosen out of
four applicants for Chomp the Vote director
- two of whom had no previous involvement
in the organization.
But UF business administration senior
Tyler Antar had spent more than a year work-
ing with Chomp the Vote as self-dubbed

About 6,000 people, many donning
blue jeans and cowboy hats or boots,
flocked to the O'Connell Center on

Singer-songwriter Jewel was sec-
ond to hit the stage, and after about
six guitar changes, she shared her
special yodeling talent before saying
goodnight.
Between acts, the audience sat
around listening to country hits, but
when the lights dimmed for the third
time, the crowd turned up the vol-
ume.
A guitar solo sounded as a spotlight
hit the white Stetson of someone stand-
ing on the upstage platform, which the
crowd took to be Paisley.

Cigarette sets off fireworks in car
CENTRAL FALLS, R.I. (AP) A Rhode Island man faces charges
after the cigarette he was smoking inside a car apparently ignited
fireworks.
Police arrested the 28-year-old Sunday after an officer found a'
sedan smoking in the middle of the street. Firefighters were called to
extinguish the blaze. No one was injured.
The man told police he was smoking a cigarette in the car when
fireworks near his feet ignited. Witnesses told police they saw a pas-
senger tossing fireworks out shortly before police arrived.
The man is charged with the use or possession of fireworks under

Codes took


years to revise

By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Writer

"It's keg, keg stand? Is that what it's called?"
Patricia Telles-Irvin, vice president of Student Affairs,
asked as she began explaining in an interview on
Sept. 24 why the phrase "keg tipping" was included
in the proposed changes to UF's Student Honor and
Conduct codes.
The phrase, she said, was added by a not-so-savvy
administrator who confused keg "tipping" with keg
"standing." The reference was corrected weeks before
UF's Board of Trustees voted on
the final version of the revisions,
she said.
According to student inter-
pretation of the policy before it
assumed its final form, students
would be in violation if they pos-
sessed a common source container
Reilly of alcohol, such as a keg, or partici-
pated in activities that encouraged
excessive, rapid consumption of alcohol, such as beer
pong, while on UF property or while participating in
a university activity.
But that was one minor example of countless revi-
sions the proposed code changes underwent before
being approved Sept. 24 by the Board of Trustees,
UF's highest governing body.
The vote, which followed a tumultuous two-month
period of student protest, was one event in a process
that had been unfolding for more than four years.
The journey began in 2004 with a committee of
students, faculty and staff charged with reviewing
UF's student judicial system, which is outlined in the
Student Honor and Conduct Codes.
The Student Judicial Review Committee con-
cluded in an August 2004 report that the system was

Student finds dismembered
alligator
A dismembered alligator car-
cass was found in a vacant lot
on Southwest 23rd Street near
campus Thursday night only a
day after the Associated Press
reported that a dismembered
crocodile carcass was found at
the University of Miami.
"It's gator season," said Gary
Henagan, a Gainesville Police
officer who responded to the
scene. Henagan said hunters had
probably taken the alligator's
head, tail and hide and dumped
the remains. He said Waste
Management would pick up the
rest in the morning.
Eric Tilden, a UF civil engi-
neering senior, said he found the
carcass and ran to tell his room-
mates across the street.
"The first thing he said was,
'There's a giant dragon in the
field!'" said his roommate Ben
Fierstein.

UF faculty panel


discusses economy


* 700 PEOPLE ATTENDED.

By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Contributing Writer

A group of UF finance and eco-
nomics faculty pointed to drops in
real estate value as the origins of the
U.S. economic crisis in a panel on
the nationwide financial dilemma
Thursday night.
More than 700 people attended
to gain a better understanding of the
economic crisis, what it entails and
what can be done to rectify it.
The main room in Bryan Hall
could only hold 200 people the re-
maining 500 had to watch the panel
on television from seven overflow
rooms throughout the campus.
David Denslow, a UF economics
professor, said the current financial
crisis began with the bursting of the
real estate bubble.
This is the first time since the
1930s that there has been a national
decline in real estate prices, Denslow
said.
He said there have always been
drops in real estate, but they have
been localized, such as in Southern
California or Boston.
"When the housing prices are
lowered in one part of the country, it
always rises in another, so there has
been no worrying," he said.
Mike Ryngaert, a UF finance
professor, said people have been
receiving loans on lenient terms to
buy real estate.
People aren't truthful in their
loan applications about how much
money they make, Ryngaert said.
Although the person processing
the loan might think something is
wrong, Ryangaert said he or she will
get compensation if the loan goes
through and will process it anyway.
People have been taking out
multiple loans to pay for one house,

he said.
"In the end, what they owe might
be more than what the house is actu-
ally worth," Ryngaert said.
If this is the case, he said many
people have been turning the keys
to their houses over to the banks.
"When the banks foreclose a
house, the real estate value drops,"
he said. "And for every $12 of the
outstanding loans, the banks only
receive $1 in equity."
The $700 billion rescue plan that
has been proposed to the govern-
ment will buy the mortgages from
the banks, Ryngaert said.
The plan was voted down by
the House of Representatives on
Monday but passed in the Senate on
Wednesday. A revised plan will be
presented to the House today.
Kimberly Schmitt, a
-On UF freshman, said that
Campus she is in favor of the
Campus current rescue plan.
"It is going to hap-
pen, but it is a matter of sooner or
later," Schmitt said. "If it happens
later, it will only be more money and
may end up in the trillions instead of
$700 billion."
She said that if the country does
not pass the rescue plan, companies
that are considered too big to fail
would fail.
"They will drag the economy
down with them because of the
amount of people invested in them,"
she said.
The government needs to pump
the banks with money, Schmitt said.
Not all students are wor-
ried about the economy, though.
Naimish Patel, president of the UP
Investment Club, said the financial
crisis is overhyped.
"People need to panic about
something, and the media does a
good job of hyping it up," Patel
said.

Domestic abuse survivors gather for awareness vigil


By MELISSA MILCHMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Jan Robinson is more than a
victim of domestic violence. She is
a survivor.
Robinson, 74, shared some of her
experiences at the Peaceful Paths
Domestic Abuse Network's annual
candlelight vigil Thursday night.
The vigil is held every year
in honor of Domestic Violence
Awareness month during October.
People are embarrassed to be vic-
tims of domestic violence, Robinson
said, but help is available for those
who ask for it.
"People are starting to realize
more and more that something can
be done for everybody, and I'm
proof that (being a victim) is not the
end of the world," she said.
Robinson is one of about 65
people who attended the vigil at
Northside Park.
Domestic abuse survivors, vol-
unteers and area residents listened
as guest speakers, including State
Attorney Bill Cervone, discussed
the effects of domestic violence.
"It's been at least 20 years that the
agency has been doing this (event),"
said Theresa Harrison, executive
director of Peaceful Paths.
Peaceful Paths is a domestic
abuse network that serves survivors


of domestic violence in Alachua,
Bradford and Union counties, ac-
cording to the organization's Web
site.
Artwork created by current cli-
ents of Peaceful Paths also was put
on display at the park.
T-shirts hung from a clothes-
line printed with sayings such as
"Violence is wrong," and "One day
at a time."
Both children and adults
decorated the shirts as part of the
Clothesline Project, an art project for
current Peaceful Paths clients.
Peaceful Paths provides a wide
range of services, such as emer-
gency shelter, crisis hotlines, victim
advocacy, counseling and support
groups, community awareness and
intervention and violence preven-
tion programs, its Web site states.
"The staff at Peaceful Paths has
helped me regain my self-confi-
dence and self-esteem," Robinson
said.
Cervone said the Office of the'
State Attorney is the court arm
when it comes to issues in domestic
violence.
Rehabilitating both offenders
and victims of domestic violence is
part of the solution, Cervone said.
Peaceful Paths is working with
UF and Victoria's Secret PINK on a
project called Recycle Your Sweats,


a clothing drive that benefits abuse and they are donated to men,
victims, according to a news release. women and children. A donation
Donated items are not limited bin is located outside of the Florida
to sweat pants. Other items such as Bookstore on West University
hats and shoes are also accepted, Avenue.


All items donated go to the
Peaceful Paths Thrift Store, located
at 2131 NW Sixth St., and will be
free to clients involved in Peaceful
Paths programs, Harrison said.

Editorial
It's finally the end of the week, and we're happier than a
pig rolling around in his own you-know-what. Sure the
week started off poorly because of the damn Rebels,
but once we saw Tebow get that crazy/determined look
in his eye, we were at ease once again. Our only fear now
is he won't save his rage for the appropriate enemies and
will instead bull-charge anyone who isn't rocking Orange
and Blue.
In addition to our quarterback's apparently newfound
gridiron bloodlust, we're wicked excited it's finally cooling
down a bit. We appreciate whatever keeps us from becom-
ing the smelly kid in class. There's nothing like plopping
into your seat on the second floor of sweltering Weimer
Hall, only to be greeted by an air conditioner that's on the
fritz. Try enjoying the next three hours of class as your ass
and your chair transform into a new form of Velcro that
has to be pried apart with a crowbar. Our steamy class-
room took the term "swamp-ass" to previously unreach-
able heights, and now October is here to save the day and
our favorite pants.
Enough about our hygienic shortcomings, it's time for
this week's edition of...


Darts & Laurels
For starters, we'd like to award UF and the Gainesville
area for their efforts to "go green" with a we-don't-know-
what-sustainability-means-but-we'll-do-it-if-Luda-does
LAUREL. The local community has made sincere efforts
to be environmentally conscious, and we're all for com-
munities that are pro-Earth.
Gainesville Regional Utilities and Regional Transit
System have both publicized their support for alternative
energy sources (at least they're trying), and both the city
and the county require businesses to recycle. Plus, we all
know how bicycle crazy UFers are just ask people who
have walked through Turlington with their heads down
around noon. They'll have the handlebar bruises to prove
it.
Next, we're going to loft a win-or-lose-we-still-booze-
because-it's-great-to-be-a-Florida-Gator DART to every-
one who left our game against Mississippi last week drag-
ging their feet and conspiring to start a Web site to give
our offensive coordinator the proverbial axe. It's only one
game, people. Rather than whining about play calls and
a few missed tackles, be grateful the loss happened this
early in the season. Just because we won two years ago
doesn't mean we're entitled to jack squat this year.
Moving on, now we'd like to give a we-like-you-less-
than-Wal-Mart-greeters-but-more-than-telemarketers
LAUREL to the voter registration volunteers on campus.
You're out there providing a service you know it, and
we appreciate it. You guys and girls are out there in the
trenches pestering people for the greater good, and you
sweat like dogs while you do it. Thanks for trying to knock
some sense into the rest of us with your clipboards.
Now it's time to fling an if-the-economy's-so-damn-
bad-then-just-study-in-your-apartment DART at UF
students who insist on studying abroad but in places
that aren't as "nice" during a legitimate national finan-
cial crisis. Central America doesn't want your pity-study
money. It might be too expensive to go to Madrid, but who
says you have to go anywhere? Maybe you should think
about taking a travel chill pill, wait a semester or two and
then skip off to London. For those of you who don't have
a few semesters left: Get over it, and get a job. You don't
have money to spend anyway.
That'll do for this week, kiddies. Have a safe weekend,
and go Gators.

Fundraising money should be better spent
After reading the articles on our Student
Government candidates raising a couple
thousand bucks for their ever-important T-
shirts and buttons, I couldn't help but think
about how much money Americans waste
by giving to political campaigns. For the
2008 election thus far, all of the candidates
have raised over $1 billion (McCain = $230
million, Obama = $454 million). Why?
We get it already. Obama: You are cool,
hip, here for change, and you shoot hoops.
McCain: You are experienced, a war hero,
support tax breaks, and you probably
dominate in shuffleboard. You are either an
informed voter or you aren't. Mud-slinging
commercials, yard signs and bumper stick-
ers don't make the difference. Let's start

Volunteers don't avoid McCain supporters
I couldn't help but laugh at the edito-
rial submitted Thursday by Michael George
about voter registration volunteers avoiding
him because he was wearing a McCain-Palin
shirt. It's entirely possible they did not pur-
sue him because someone with enough in-
terest in the election to own a shirt featuring
the name of one of the candidates may be
more likely to have already registered. It's
also possible that in the crowded Turlington

way, it's irresponsible to allege a conspiracy
based solely on anecdotal evidence.

Amendment 2 about curbing rights, not protecting marriage


I'm against Amendment 2 be-
ause I believe Florida should
tand up for the gay community.
The most vocal opponents of
Amendment 2 have been arguing
against the ballot initiative primar-
ily on the grounds that it's a threat
to domestic partnerships, and that's
a valid argument. If it succeeds, the
amendment would specifically de-
fine marriage as "the legal union of
one man and one woman" and de-
dare no other union "shall be valid
or recognized."
The amendment takes direct aim
at gay marriage, but the ambigu-
ous wording also throws the legal
rights and benefits of all unmarried
couples into serious danger.
Protecting domestic partner-
ships doesn't mean pretending this
amendment isn't also a gay advo-
cacy issue. It's startling to see how
the gay advocacy angle has been
downplayed or outright ignored by


those who simply want to see the
amendment defeated.
Consider the strategy used
in Arizona to combat a similar
proposed amendment in 2006.
Opponents seized upon their
amendment's implications for do-
mestic partnerships, resulting in
Arizona becoming the first and,
so far, only U.S. state to reject a
marriage protection amendment.
This year, Arizona will once again
vote on a marriage amendment, but
this time, the language will be nar-
rower and will target only gay mar-
riage. It has a much greater chance
of passing; a 2005 survey found
only 33 percent of Arizonans polled
would support an amendment that
affected domestic partnerships, but
support for a ban exclusively on gay
marriage was at 54 percent.
If Florida votes down this
amendment solely on the grounds
of protecting domestic partnerships,


Joe Dellosa there's no
Speaking Out guarantee
a more nar-
rowly fo-
cused amendment won't pop up in
two years. It's going to be difficult
to tell people in 2010 to "defend gay
rights!" when a few years earlier,
they were assured this wasn't about
gay rights at all.
I understand gay marriage is still
unpopular nationwide. Gay rights
may not be a universal value, but
compassion and understanding are.
I'm against Amendment 2 be-
cause the arguments for protecting
traditional marriage and the warn-
ings of the foundation of society
being undermined sound a lot like
those used to defend laws banning
interracial marriage a century ago,
and that's frightening.
I'm against Amendment 2 be-
cause religious faith is supposed
to be personal and sacred, and to


manipulate religious beliefs as a
political weapon or as a get-out-
the-vote tool against a group of
people is unconscionable.
I'm against Amendment 2 be-
cause quoting scripture in a political
ad to foment fear and paranoia is
shamelessly exploitative and could
only be more blasphemous if the ad
ended with "I'm Jesus Christ, and I
approved this message."
I'm against Amendment 2, be-
cause I care about the intangible
impact of this amendment. I don't
want any gay person in the state to
feel unwanted. I don't want any gay
high school student who's already
having a tough time to have another
reason to feel alone, and I don't
want anybody who seeks to harass
or threaten gay people to feel like
they've gotten an implicit, uninten-
tional endorsement from Florida's
electorate.
And I'm against Amendment


2 because everybody deserves
the right to butcher "Such Great
Heights" as they sing karaoke-style
to the one they love without it being
called unworthy of recognition.
Regardless of how those back-
ing Amendment 2 are trying to
frame this debate, a "no" vote
isn't a wholesale endorsement of
gay rights. Rather, it's a simple
but powerful statement that says,
"Regardless of how I feel about gay
rights or marriage, I won't allow a
group of people to be ostracized and
stigmatized just because they want
to love someone."
The proponents of Amendment
2 are betting that we don't have the
decency or the courage to make that
statement. We need to prove them
wrong.
Please vote "no" on 2.

Gators Quarterback Tim

CONCERT, from page 1


there he was on a catwalk extending into the middle of the floor crowd,
wearing a black shirt, jeans, boots, a cream-colored cowboy hat and a huge
smile.
The audience's energy was almost palpable as he strapped on a blue
electric guitar. Audience members stomped their feet and clapped with the
music; some did the Gator chomp.
"I am so pleased to be at Florida. The place where Heis-
man Trophy winners are born."

"I am so pleased to be at Florida," Paisley said during an interlude while
playing a guitar. "The place where Heisman Trophy winners are born."
Later, Gators quarterback Tim Tebow joined Paisley onstage to help sing
"I'm Still a Guy."
Paisley's songs pumped out feel-good energy and lyrics about American
life, but during a slower hit, the mood calmed.
Guys stuck their fists in their jean pockets, girls rocked back and forth,
and couples swayed together from their seats in the audience.
"This is the Paisley Party," Paisley said. "This being an election year, the
only party that matters is the Paisley Party."

Telles-Irvin fascinated that of 15 regulations, focus came down to alcohol


REVISIONS, from page 1


healthy but noted a problem with the student-
run Honor Court.
The report stated that faculty members felt
the court was too adversarial and time-con-
suming and recommended further review.
Former Interim Vice President of Student
Affairs Mike Rollo, who appointed the com-
mittee, presented the findings to the Board of
Trustees, which also suggested further review
of the system.
When Telles-Irvin -took over in October
2004 as vice president of Student Affairs, she
postponed that investigation for two years.
"I had many things to attend to, so that re-
ally wasn't the number one priority," she said.
In July 2006, Telles-Irvin convened the
Student Conduct Code Committee, which was
also comprised of students, faculty and staff.
The committee would evaluate the ju-
dicial system along with the honor code,
which deals with academic misconduct, and
Conduct Code, which deals with behavioral
misconduct.
In a Thursday phone interview, John
Clayton Brett, a student on the 2006 com-
mittee, said he was disappointed with the
committee's responses to his input and
decided to leave before it produced its final
recommendations.
He said he didn't think the subcommittee
he was on solicited enough student input.
Steve Hagen, an associate professor of
physics on the committee, also said in a
Thursday phone interview that while the com-


mittee sought student opinion, most students
weren't interested in some of the issues the
committee was dealing with.
After about a year of meetings, discussion
and research, the committee produced a report
that recommended UF eliminate the Honor
Court's ability to hear academic dishonesty
cases and clarify its alcohol policy, which was
unclear on specifics regarding games or con-
tainers encouraging binge drinking.
A few of the committee's recommendations
were incorporated into UF's Conduct Code in
June 2007 following a board vote, but the rest
of the recommendations would have to wait.
Meanwhile, then-Dean of Students Gene
Zdziarski began writing the new codes that
would eventually be posted on UF's Web site
this past summer.
Zdziarski said he originally planned to post
the codes in April but decided that students
would think UF was trying to avoid attention
by introducing the changes at the end of the
school year as students were leaving.
Instead, they were posted July 30, with a
little more than a-week left in summer B. The
comment period on the proposed changes
to the codes was set at the usual two weeks
but was eventually extended to 44 days after
widespread student reaction.
Students would put that time to good use.
They met with administrators, sent e-mails
and letters, spoke at Student Senate meet-
ings and even started a petition to oppose the
changes.
The outpouring was more than Telles-Irvin
said she'd ever seen over a regulation change.
"It's so fascinating," she said.
"You have 15 regulations and it's come


down to just alcohol, which, of course, from
my perspective, starts to make me wonder
and worry about what's really going on out
there."
At the heart of the controversy was a sec-
tion of the Conduct Code that attempts to curb
alcohol consumption.
The problem, many students said, was that
the definition of a university activity included
"a social event or other activity, wherever lo-
cated, hosted by a member of the University
community where other members of the
University community are in attendance."
To some students, it seemed that an off-
campus party with kegs or beer pong hosted
and attended by
UF UF students would
Administration violate UF's Conduct
Code.
Telles-Irvin admitted the wording was
unclear and ultimately eliminated the clause,
but she said it was never UF's intent to punish
students for legal off-campus drinking.
"We've never gone into the private home
of a student and addressed a keg, or a drink-
ing game, or anything like that," said Chris
Loschiavo, director of the newly named
Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution,
formerly Judicial Affairs.
According to information provided by
Loschiavo, there were about 4,200 violations
of the conduct code in the past two academic
years. Of those, 113 were for off-campus inci-
dents. Except for DUIs, none of those viola-
tions related to alcohol.
Kellie Dale, Student Senate president, said
even though the current administration may
not have intended to apply the code as it read,


an administration 10 years from now could
decide to enforce it differently, and she didn't
want to take that chance.
Ultimately, students seemed to get the
changes they wanted.
"The same rights that you're afforded now,
you'll be afforded in the future," Student Body
President Kevin Reilly said after the board ap-
proved the new codes.
Revisions to the Student Honor Code also
significantly changed the role of the Honor
Court.
As of last week, the court, established in
1914, no longer hears cases academic dishon-
esty, such as plagiarism or cheating.
According to UF records, only 22 cases out
of 1,095 have been heard before the court since
August of 2001.
Under the new codes, the other options
available to students charged with violating
the codes, including the Student Conduct
Committee, will still be available and most
of the panels will now be required to have a
majority of students.
Ultimately, because the court is part of the
Student Body Constitution, and changes to it
require a vote of the Student Senate and the
student body, its future role may not be de-
cided until the spring, when students would
likely be able to vote on a proposal, Reilly
said.
Honor Court Chancellor Jason Zimmerman
said he is excited about the future role of the
court.
"We want to help the Student Body and
we're here to be a resource to the Student
Body, and the university, but we're just not
being used," Zimmerman said.

We Inform. You Decide.


First text message sent on Thursday


CHOMP, from page 1

co-director when he applied for the position and
offered summer availability.
Reilly said Roth was hired for his vision, which
focused less on "pounding the pavement" and more
on informing the masses through tactics such as text
messaging.
The first text message was sent out Thursday
morning, four days before the deadline to register to
vote on Oct. 6, to the estimated 12,000 students regis-
tered for Mobile Campus text messages.
Still, Antar's familiarity with the organization
was indisputable.
When Chomp the Vote suffered a lack of leader-
ship during the 2006-2007 school year, Antar ap-
proached then-Student Body President John Boyles
to begin spearheading efforts to prepare students for
the upcoming presidential primaries, Antar said.
After first applying in 2007, Antar failed to nab
the position, which he said was likely because of an
out-of-town commitment for the whole summer.
When former Chomp Director Frank Bracco was
appointed, Antar became his right-hand man after
returning to UF in the fall.
"The only reason Chomp the Vote was brought
back was Tyler Antar. It wasn't me," Bracco said.
Antar said he was surprised Roth got the posi-
tion, given his summer-long internship.
He said Roth, a member of Phi Kappa Tau, could
offer SG the fraternity's support.
Reilly and Roth separately said the idea of Roth
becoming director on the backs of his fraternity
brothers was ridiculous.
"Roth was chosen because he's the most quali-
fied person and would do the best job," said Reilly,
adding he had wanted Antar to stay involved and
offered him a position as Roth's right-hand man.
Antar turned down the offer.
"I just thought I was the better candidate for it,"
Antar said. "I thought that I had the experience."
Roth said he was chosen because he presented the
most effective strategy for the coming fall.
Through a co-partnership with the national non-
partisan New Voters Project, Roth said more than
1,000 students have been registered. Most of those
registrations came from talking to students on cam-
pus and offering them forms on the spot.
And then there was the text message on Thursday,
which Roth said would incite students to register out
of a sense of urgency along with increased outreach.


Based on his experience, Bracco said he was un-
sure of the success text messaging would have.
"(Students) actually need to be approached," he
said. "They need to be asked. They actually need to
be forced to do something."
Roth said text messaging is a nearly foolproof
method to reach voters because messages must be
read before deletion.
Text messages were sent out later than planned
because of confusion about UF's switch from Mobile
Campus to Acceleration, a local provider.
Daron Williams, campus organizer for the New
Voters Project, said students procrastinate, so fewer
volunteers were needed the past weeks. The group
also provided online options for students to register.
"Instead of being out there every day, every week,
for the entire semester, we'd rather just focus on the
last week and a half," he said. "We were out there
a little less just because, you know, it wasn't crunch
time."
Meanwhile, Students for Barack Obama regis-
tered 2,500 voters on the first day of the semester,
and Gators for McCain have reg-
istered about 300 so far, accord-
So m jent ing the organizations' respective
presidents. Both organizations
have been out encouraging stu-
dents to register every day this semester.
Former Director Jared Hernandez said under his
leadership, Chomp the Vote registered about 8,000
students by the Oct. 4 deadline for the 2004 presi-
dential election, mainly through seeking them out
on campus.
Roth said the two presidential elections could not
be compared.
He said he expects to register 3,000 to 4,000 stu-
dents by Monday after weekend efforts but could not
specify what those were.
"We haven't set up final plans yet," he said, add-
ing that they might include seeking students to regis-
ter outside of bars.
Roth said he would agree that his team has tabled
less than in years past.
"We also contacted 12,000 students in a matter of
2 seconds," he said.
Roth said he knew some of those students who
received the text message might have already regis-
tered to vote.
One of those was UF freshman Natalie Romano,
who registered a few weeks ago with Students for
Barack Obama, but said she appreciated the text just
the same.

Picks


Column


SITE: Donald W. Reynolds
Razorback Stadium, Fayetteville,
Ark., (cap. 76,000)
KICKOFF: Saturday 12:30 p.m.


Everyone knows that animals can
be a guy's best friend.
And we here at the alligatorSports
Brand Picks Column would like you to
know that we certainly agree with that
statement. I mean, who doesn't like
playing fetch with Fido or watching a
cat lose its head over some catnip?
But, of course, there are times when
animals and nature can hit a little too
dose to home. And that's where Steve
Daphnis comes in.
Daphnis is a wildlife control pro-
fessional in Fayetteville, Ark., so who
better to talk to as the Gators and
Razorbacks get set to duel Saturday?
If you ever hear a strange scratch-
ing or screeching noise coming from
your attic, you don't have to worry
that you're going crazy (though liv-
ing in Arkansas probably leads one
to question his own sanity often). You
probably just have a wildlife infesta-
tion-
"I've seen people that have had
bats and snakes in their homes,"
Daphnis said. "People wonder how
the heck they can get in there, but they
find a way. I once saw a small bat nest
in a home."
Daphnis and his colleagues are
sometimes called for bigger problems
such as a wolf or fox wandering into
someone's back yard or for as little as
a stray cat happening to wander onto
a front lawn.
"We get all kinds of things," he
said. "People calling about stray cats
are the worst. I mean, you seriously
can't deal with that for yourself?
"The big stuff like wolves and foxes
wandering doesn't happen often,
but it definitely gets your adrenaline
going. It takes like three people, and
wrapping that sucker up gets your
blood flowing."

Gators renew focus on fundamentals


* UF AND ARKANSAS LAST
PLAYED IN 2006.

By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

Suddenly, statistics do not seem
so important.
While the Gators won their first
three games, many fans were un-
happy with an offense that wasn't
recording eye-popping numbers.
Then the big numbers came
(see: 443 total yards of offense), but
they ended in a 31-30 defeat at the
hands of Mississippi.
So when No. 12 UF (3-1, 1-1
Southeastern Conference) travels
to play. Arkansas (2-2, 0-1 SEC),
its focus will be on the only figure
that matters wins.
"It's not the first time, and it
won't be the last time this year
we'll face adversity square in the
face," coach Urban Meyer said.
"We haven't really faced it. We've
been playing fairly well, fairly
consistent (before the Mississippi
game). The biggest adversity
we've had is someone saying,
'Boy, you guys aren't having 500-
yard games.' Well, OK, that was
the biggest adversity we had to
deal with. Now we're dealing with
(real adversity), and I kind of like
our reaction so far."
The last time these two
teams played was the 2006 SEC
Championship Game, and much
has changed since then. UF won
that matchup 38-28 on its way


to claiming a national title, and
Arkansas enters the game having
lost two straight by an average of
38.5 points.
Houston Nutt, now with the
Rebels, was the coach for the
Razorbacks then, and they fea-
tured a two-headed rushing at-
tack with Darren McFadden and
Felix Jones. Both now suit up on
Sunday for NFL Teams.
But the bigger storyline this


week will be UF's recovery from
last week's surprising loss, and a
big emphasis has been put on the
basics this week.
"Your fundamentals are what
you rely on at the end of the
game," wide receivers coach Billy
Gonzales said. "You listen to great
coaches and great teams it's
when you fundamentally can do
the little things better than every-
one else."


Gonzales' unit is one ofkt ose
that had some fundamenta5- 3eak-
downs against the Rebels. Several
receivers dropped passes, not to
mention four plays where Tun
Tebow overthrew an open man.
The ball continues to be spread
around, although Gonzales said
that getting few looks a game is
not an excuse. Tebow completed
24 passes Saturday, but only six of

Ole Miss loss old news; UF actually playing Arkansas


after Monday morning's press confer-
ence, UF athletics directory Jeremy
Foley complained that only one ques-
tion in a 20-minute interview was asked to
UF coach Urban Meyer about the upcoming
Arkansas game.
It was funny at the time, considering the
Mississippi game was still fresh in everyone's
minds.
But now? Foley has a point. After four
straight days of questions almost entirely
about the Mississippi loss, I want to pull my
hair out.
For nearly a week, we have stood around
Meyer and asked him what went wrong
against the Rebels. Was it the playcalling?
The fumbles? A poor defensive showing?
I don't care anymore about that game. I've
heard Meyer say "We have to improve on


that" this week more
times than I've heard
Cubs fans say "This
is our year" (which
brief aside sorry
Evan Drexler guys, it's not). There
The Drex Factor are only so many times
edrexler@alligator.org your brain can take
coaches giving the
same answers to the
same questions before it shuts down.
I'm not upset about all the Mississippi talk
because I wanted to see UF win. The prob-
lem with this constant harping on the loss
is that it's not, you know, news. The game
took place six days ago. In today's world of
journalism, that might as well be a decade.
Tuesday's paper should be the cutoff for
any Mississippi talk, but we ran a column


Thursday about whose fault on offense the
loss was and a column Wednesday about the
defense playing well in that defeat. We sure
as hell would not have written four columns
about a Gators' 31-30 win over the Rebels
praising the offense or defense.
And, yes, I realize the irony of writing
about the Mississippi loss to explain how
we should have been writing less about it, so
don't bother pointing that out.
The point: Arkansas, folks, is just one day
away. I think.
Only yesterday did we start touching a
bit. on Arkansas, the team UF is playing this
weekend. And you know what? There are ac-
tually great storylines to go with this game.

Gators cannot afford overconfidence going to 'Dores


By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Alligator Writer
cyazbec@alligator.org

Heading into this weekend's matchups,
the UF soccer team decided to take a lesson
from the Gators football team.
The No. 15 Gators (7-2-1, 2-0
Southeastern Conference) are coming off
two conference wins against Georgia and
Tennessee at home last weekend.
So when they hit the road to take on
Vanderbilt on Friday night and Kentucky
on Sunday, the Gators want to dispel any
notion of a letdown like the football team's
loss last weekend against Mississippi.

"I really didn't think it was going
to be as difficult on the road as it
really is."
Tahnal Annis
UF freshman forward

"We actually talked about (the UF
football team Tuesday) at practice," junior
defender Lauren Hyde said. "(Assistant)
coach Alan (Kirkup) brought it up, and
he's like, 'That's not going to happen to us
because it already happened to the football
team, and we're going to learn from their
mistake.'"
UF coach Becky Burleigh knows how
important it is to not fall into the trap of
thinking they already have the game won,
especially on the road in the SEC.
"That's going come down to our leader-


EVAN, from page 17

Game. The Gators won that contest,
and the two programs have gone in
completely different directions since
then. UF has consistency in coach-
ing and talent. Arkansas, well, not
so much.
-Another huge story is how dra-
matically dissimilar the Arkansas
running game is from last season.
Back in 2006, running backs Darren
McFadden and Felix Jones combined
for 130 yards against UF. Now, the
Razorbacks are a shell of an offense
struggling to get by in the SEC. The
fact that Arkansas can't keep up with
the UFs and LSUs of the conference
is a giant problem with its program


ship of our team," Burleigh said. "We've
talked to them as coaches about it, but I
think their everyday discussions with their
teammates are probably more important."
One way to avoid upsets is finishing
scoring opportunities like the team has
done lately.
The Gators scored seven goals in their
last two games on just 16 shots on goal.
Freshman forward Tahnai Annis will
look to get back into the scoring column af-
ter not hitting the net in the last four games.
She scored four goals in the first six.
"I just want to do what I did when I
came out against Tennessee," Annis said.
"I felt that I played pretty aggressively and
contributed a lot offensively. So I just want
to come out with that same mentality."
As far as Annis could tell, the team
didn't have any sense of relaxing too much
this weekend.
She knows the Gators' opponents, how-
ever, certainly hope that's not the case.
"We all understand and know that we
can't do that," Annis said. "Everyone's
pretty much out to get us, so we have to
play every weekend just like we did last
weekend."
The UF defense will also be a key in
claiming victories and avoiding upsets on
the road.
The Gators blanked the Commodores
and Wildcats last season in Gainesville, but
playing on the road should prove a little
more challenging.
"I really didn't think it was going to be
as difficult on the road as it really is," Annis


that deserves mention.
Instead, the above two topics
were confined to three sentences in
two paragraphs in today's paper.
How about the fact that the
Gators' visit to Fayetteville is their
longest trip all year? That has to im-
pact a team in some way.
Defensive coordinator Charlie
Strong grew up in Arkansas as a
Razorbacks fan. There was some
funny material in there, but we
didn't touch it. Looking back, I
wish I had written more about this
Arkansas team that we all assume
UF is going to cream on Saturday.
But did we care? Nope. We just
wanted to enlighten you with the
ground-breaking knowledge that
fumbling is bad. Now that's news.


said. "The travelling really drains your en-
ergy and drains your legs, and it's hard to
get yourself in a good mental state of mind
in order to perform as high as you can."
For Hyde, it's all about staying focused
on beating Vanderbilt and Kentucky.
If that's the case, UF can probably turn


off the letdown alert sign.
"We definitely have to keep our head
in the game," Hyde said. "We c6M't let
down and think, 'Oh, we beat Georgia and
Tennessee, we can beat them easily.' That's
definitely not the mentality we're going to
have."


UF forward Tahnai Annis and Illinois' Emily Zurrer chase the ball during the Gators' 2-0
win in Pressly Stadium on Sept. 12.

those were to wide receivers not named Percy
Harvin (four were to Louis Murphy, two were
to Riley Cooper).
"You've got to stay mentally focused," he
said. The physical part of the game is going to
come to you. ... You may not be the guy until
the fourth quarter, but when your number is
called, it better.be no different.
"When you touch the ball, you better have
92,000 fans standing on their feet because they
don't know what you're going to do when you
catch the ball."
Another fundamental breakdown came in
the secondary last week when Jevan Snead con-
nected on an 86-yard touchdown pass to Shay
Hodge, who had gotten behind the Gators'
defense.
The unit should get a chance to show im-
provement against a pass-happy Arkansas
offense.


Manning the helm of that offense will be
senior Casey Dick, who leads the SoutMifstern
Conference with 242.2 passing yards per game.
UF safeties coach Chuck Heater classified
the passing attack as "expansive" and "com-
prehensive."
o. "They've got a very large (play)
book," he said. "They'll come out
and break something out a little
Football different probably on Saturday."
The past two years, losses have
been the defining point of a UF season.
In 2006, a 27-17 loss at Auburn rallied the
team to seven straight wins and a national
championship.
Last year, the Auburn home loss was fol-
lowed up by another tough loss at LSU.
Everyone is waiting to see how this team
reacts Saturday.
"We got hit in the mouth, and it's an op-
portunity to come back and find out," Meyer
said. "This will tell you a lot about what kind of
season we're going to have."


PICKS, from page 17


What would really get your blood flowing is taking on a
razorback or alligator. There's nothing like a near-death expe-
rience at the hands of an angry boar to start your day.
"We don't deal with anything that big but it might be
fun to try and catch one," Daphnis said. "We don't have any
crocodile hunters around here."
The most important question of all is who would win in a
fight: an alligator or a razorback?
"A razorback, definitely," Daphnis said. "Alligators have
short arms and legs, but a razorback can run faster than you
think and has horns on it."
Maybe coach Bobby Petrino can find some horns for his
Razorbacks.
On to the picks!
In first place, with a sterling awesome record of 28-12 is


Assistant Sports Editor Evan "Hey guys, we're going to be in
ARKANSAS this time tomorrow!" Drexler, who was explod-
ing with excitement about the previous Tennessee trip until
we hit traffic five miles into the state.
In the two-spot, with a 26-14 record, is Phil "I am so freak-
ing spoiled that I'm getting my parents to drive me to the
airport tomorrow instead of waking up at 3 a.m. like a man"
Kegler, who loves adding "baby" to ends of sentences about
the Tampa Bay Rays. Example: "Evan Longoria is sexy, baby!"
Or: "World Series all the way, baby!" What a shmuck.
Smack dab in the middle of mediocrity, with a 24-16 mark,
is Sports Editor Brian "When I grow up, I'm going to marry
a long snapper" Steele, whose favorite interview subject has
switched from the lovable Pouncey twins to James Smith. He
talks to Smith more than Urban Meyer does.
Batting cleanup with a .575 winning percentage (you
can do the math) is Karl "Tim Tebow is blacker than me"
Hyppolite, who is looking at jobs ranging from traffic-clogged


Atlanta to middle-of-nowhere Macon, Ga., a whopping 84-
mile span. Way to expand your horizons and try new things.
In dead-ass last place for the fifth consecutive week (but
slowly catching up!) with a piss-poor record of 22-18 is Mike
"Who needs a CD player or a radio to play music when you
have a chip that goes in your phone?" McCall, who doesn't
seem to understand that no, we don't want to hear the "7th
Floor Crew" song for the 59th time. They talk about t1oiU pe-
nises, McCall. Get over it.
