KENTUCKY 5


Bulldogs await after Gators down Wildcats

E UF AND GEORGIA ONLY HAVE ONE LOSS EACH
ON THE SEASON.

By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Staff Writer
edrexler@alligator.org
Z Let the countdown to Jacksonville begin.
After a 63-5 flattening of Kentucky on Saturday after-
noon, No. 5 UF has its sights set firmly on its game with
No. 8 Georgia this weekend.
The Wildcats (5-3, 1-3 Southeastern Conference) of-
fered little resistance as the Gators (6-1, 4-1 SEC) put up
28 points in the first quarter and never looked back.
In the post-game press conference, questions focused
more on the Georgia contest than the one UF had just
-completed.
It was clear players had been instructed not to talk
about the Georgia game, specifically about the now-in-
--famous touchdown celebration the Bulldogs performed
after their first score in last year's game, which they went
on to win 42-30.
After a 1-yard touchdown by running back Knowshon
Moreno, the Georgia sideline emptied, and the players
stomped on the field in front of the Gators.
q Linebacker Brandon Spikes, for example, responded
with four "no comments" when asked about the celebra-
tion.
SWide receiver Percy Harvin was the only player who
Chas A o Sf came close to talking about it.
Charles Roop / Aligator Staff "That's not been our style," Harvin said. "When

UF ADMINISTRATION

IFAS VP to leave in Jan.


Jimmy Cheek, senior vice president of UF's
Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences,
will step down in late January to become
chancellor at the University of Tennessee,
Knoxville.
UT Knoxville's Board of Trustees unani-
mously approved Cheek as chancellor in a
meeting Friday.
"I really like the university and the state
of Florida, but I.-felt like this was a possibility
for a capstone experience to end my career,"
Cheek said.
Cheek starts his new job Feb. 1. His an-
nual salary will be $345,000. He will also get
a $10,000 non-accountable expense account,
$20,000 for housing expenses, $20,000 for mov-
ing expenses and a university vehicle.
His annual salary at UF is $296,000, not


including bonuses. \
As chancellor, Cheek's position will
be similar to the position of UF President
Bernie Machen, said Jack
Battenfield, IFAS spokes-
man.
Battenfield said Machen
will appoint a search com-
mittee to find Cheek's re-
placement. He said Machen
may decide to select an
Cheek interim head of IFAS.
Cheek, 62, came to UF
as an associate professor of agricultural educa-
tion and communication in 1975. In 2005, he
became head of IFAS.

UF group contests law


By LAUREN IRIZARRY
Alligator Contributing Writer


A hearing today could decide
whether citizen groups must register
with the state to campaign for political
candidates and issues.
Four groups across the state, includ-
ing UF College Libertarians, filed a
suit Oct. 8 against Florida Secretary of
State Kurt Browning and the Florida
Elections C6mmission, stating the law
limited constitutional rights to free
speech and freedom of assembly.


U.S. District Judge Stephan Mickle
will hear arguments at 10 a.m. at the
downtown federal courthouse to de-
cide whether to grant an injunction on
Florida's electioneering
State communications law.
News The law requires
groups to register with
the state if their purpose
is to accept contributions and spend
money to comment on candidates or
ballot issues.
The groups' case will be presented

ELECTIONS 08

Actress-stops in Gainesville to promote early voting


By KATHRYN WATSON
Alligator Contributing Writer
Alicia Silverstone wants Sen.
Barack Obama to be her dad.
"He reminds me of a really
amazing father," Silverstone said
to nearly 50 Obama supporters
and volunteers Saturday. "Who
wouldn't want to call him their
dad?"
The actress, best known for
her roles in "Clueless" and
"Batman and Robin," came to
Gainesville to host an "Early


Voting for Change" event.
Silverstone is touring Florida
to promote early voting.
Tallahassee was her first stop on
the tour.
In Gainesville, her second
stop, she also took time to recog-
nize campaign volunteers.
She spent about 10 minutes
taking their questions and more
than 30 minutes posing for pic-
tures and talking to them one
by one at the "Campaign for
Change" office.
Although the actress is pro-


moting early voting, she said she
has not voted.
"I have about
10 more propo-
sitions I want
to read more
about," she
.A, said.
s"I guess if
you aren't as
SilIverstone obsessive about
propositions
like I am, early voting will work
for you."
Silverstone, who is campaign-


ing for a political candidate for
the first time, said Obama's re-
fusal to take money from corpo-
rations was the main reason she
chose to campaign on his behalf.
"When you take money for a
campaign, those people are your
boss," she said. "Now, we are his
boss."
Silverstone, a self-proclaimed
"truth-seeker," said that Obama's
ability to speak on her level mo-
tivated her.
"I understand what he is say-
ing to me. And if I can under-


stand it, anyone can," she said.
"He's not trying to sell us ideas.
He's being clear."
Her tour includes appear-
ances in Orlando and Tampa.
Silverstone will also appear at
the University of Miami today
for "VoteFest '08" alongside
actors Matt Damon and Kerry
Washington.
After finishing her tour of
Florida, Silverstone said she
would return to Los Angeles,
where she plans to participate in
a phone bank for Obama.

Cell phones to guide city tours


By ANDREA ASUAJE
Alligator Writer
aasuaje@alligator.org

Following the lead of cities
like Chicago and Hong Kong,
Gainesville is launching a pilot
program to attract and educate
tourists and residents about the
city's history.
Gainesville Cultural Affairs is
developing a free cell phone tour
of Gainesville that will allow visi-
tors to dial into a prerecorded tour
message given by a virtual guide
to the city.
The tour is expected to be
ready for operation by the end of
November, said Miriam Deckert,
tourism marketer for Gainesville.
As of now, phone tours are
planned to feature the north and
south sides of the historic district
near downtown and northeast
Gainesville.
Deckert said signs will be post-
ed in featured areas stating, "Let
your cell phone be your guide"
and will show a phone number
and code to dial to hear informa-
tion.
The messages will tell about
the history of the area and how
it's been a part of Gainesville's
culture, she said.
"We want people to see that


there's lots of other things to do
here," she said, "not just football."
She said the tour is still in plan-
ning stages, so more locations
could be featured as the tour ex-
pands and develops.
Coni Gesualdi, director of cul-
tural affairs for Gainesville, said
the Thomas Center gallery started
using a cell phone tour in a recent
exhibit, and it turned out to be a
hit.

"We want people to see
that there's lots of other
things to do here not just
football."
Miriam Deckert
tourism marketer for Gainesville

"It's like having your own per-
sonal guide," Gesualdi said. "It's
much more interesting than just
coming into a building and just
wandering around on your own."
She said she wants the tour to
eventually extend to other places,
including Alachua County's sev-
eral veterans' memorials.
"This is a way of getting more
information than your eyes can
give you," she said.
Rie Burton, an associate of the
Thomas Center, which is one of


the tour's featured stops, said she
is optimistic that people would use
the service.
Being familiar with local his-
tory is important not only for resi-
dents but for those visiting the city,
Burton said.
The virtual tours will give
people more information about
the location than what they could
learn from a brochure, she said.
She also said everyone involved
is looking forward to the public's
reaction to the tour-and thinking
positively about the benefits of the
tour for the city and its residents.
"It's an experiment," she said.
"We'll just have to wait and see
how many people take advantage
of it."

Woman arrested


for stabbing man
A woman who brought her boyfriend to the hospital
for a knife wound was arrested Sunday on charges of
stabbing him.
At 4 a.m. Patsy Shenice Wesley, 42, brought
her boyfriend, Levy Morgan Butler, to Shands at
AGH with a non-life-threatening stab wound to his
lower back, Gainesville Police Lt. Larry Seale said.
Police were called by an employee at the hospital, Seale
said.
Wesley told police the two had gotten into an argu-
ment about cheating, and she had thrown garbage on the
floor and poured syrup and body wash on the bed, a GPD
report stated.
Local She told police she did not know how her
News boyfriend had been stabbed, and if she did
it, it must have been an accident, the report
stated.
A witness who lives with the couple told police he
overheard the argument and that Butler said they were
going to the hospital because Wesley had cut him.
The report stated there had been a sworn complaint
against Wesley in September.
An affidavit stated she had climbed through Butler's
window, throwing his items around his room and pouring
vinegar on his bed, according to the report.

Editorial


Back off

Early voting is not life or

death
The political pestering never seems to end.
First, we had to register with a certain party be-
cause Florida is a closed primary state, which means
independents can't vote in primaries. Get off our back about
primaries we didn't even know who all the nominees for
the candidacy were. New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson?
Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich? We knew about Rudy Giuliani,
but wasn't he only a mayor?
Then, these gung-ho activists wanted to make sure we
were registered to vote in Alachua County. We felt like ev-
ery walk through the Plaza of the Americas turned into a
chase scene from "ChiPs."
There was only the one question. They never asked us
how we were doing or if we had already handled our voter
business via absentee ballot. All they wanted from us was a
signature. They were such a pushy bunch.
They didn't stop there, of course. Now, they're all about
the early vote. Don't put it off until election day, they say.
What we want to know is, why shouldn't we?
Maybe our Tuesday schedule lends itself perfectly to tak-
ing an hour of our day to vote.
Frankly, we're a little more concerned with our nightly
jobs and mountains of class readings than we are about
voting early.
We're going to vote, so let us do it on our time. There's
no need to come to our doors three times to tell us to vote
ahemm, Obama folks).
You've pestered us long enough. The primaries are done,
and we've registered; now back off a bit, and let us handle
the rest.


Make a splash


We love being Gators
because the enthu-
siasm on campus
knows no bounds. Seriously,
UF students get hyped up
for anything and everything
and then work their tails off
to make everything bigger
and better than originally
expected.
For once, we're not talk-
ing about tailgating, protest-
ing or registering voters.
This time we're referring to
the insane amount of people
who turned out to break a
water balloon fight record at
Flavet Field on Friday.
There were more than
2,500 people who showed
up to pelt each other with
more than 55,000 water bal-
loons on UF's campus.
The Editorial Board isn't
exactly comprised of people
who could be called number
crunchers or math aficiona-
dos. In fact, big numbers
tend to make us feel uncom-
fortable.


We prefer English, writ-
ing and editing, but we
know big, impressive num-
bers when we see them. The
thought of that many bal-
loons makes our heads start
to spin in confusion.
We can't imagine all the
work that went into filling
all those balloons, but we
can certainly fathom the fun
involved in unleashing them
on thousands of people.
Even though the water
balloon event didn't break
a world record, UF still
gained recognition by being
featured on national televi-
sion.
UF should try to break
a world record every year.
Our world record challenge
could become as success-
ful as Gator Gallop and the
Great Underwear Dash.
We want our Gators
sports teams to be the best in
the nation, so why shouldn't
we fight to attach UF's name
to a world record?

Early voting could
In what pundits are calling a year with "strong
Democratic tailwinds" (think economic woes, un-
popular president, etc.), Sen. John McCain has man-
aged to hold the presidential contest between him and
Sen. Barack Obama very close. According to Real Clear
Politics, an organization that averages a week's worth
of poll results from multiple sources, McCain was in a
dead heat with Obama in national and battleground state
polls.
Unfortunately for the GOP, the past month has not
been kind to the senator from Arizona, and Obama has
begun to break away.
Despite a recent Associated Press poll of likely voters
that shows Obama about even with McCain, it still seems
certain that -barring an October surprise Obama will
blow McCain off the electoral map on election day.
Ever since the Dow went schizophrenic and consumer
confidence began plummeting, Obama has taken over.
Nationally, polls indicate more than 50 percent of vot-
ers believe the economy is the most important issue and
more voters believe Obama is better equipped to handle
financial breakdowns than McCain.
According to a Qunnipiac University poll released
Friday, voters in the key electoral states of Ohio, Florida
and Pennsylvania believe Obama is more economically
capable than McCain, by varying margins of 8 to 19 per-
centage points. Combined with reports that the economy
won't right itself until long after Election Day and the
Dow's slide into oblivion, these sorry economic condi-
tions favor Obama.
General polling averages in key states do not look
promising for McCain, either. In Virginia, which was
once a GOP stronghold, McCain is down by an average


mean Obama win
of 7 percentage points. In North
Carolina, it's a toss-up between
the two candidates. If Obama
flips either the Old Dominion
or the Tar Heel State, then the
Obamabots could be drinking

Obama, too. In North Carolina,
Democrats are outvoting
Republicans by a margin of nearly 3-to-1. Meanwhile,
blacks, who only make up 21 percent of the state's
population, make up 31 percent of early voters. There is
no way these trends don't lend themselves to Obama's
future success.
In Georgia, 55 percent of early voters are women
while more than 35 percent are black two demograph-
ics who strongly favor Obama.
The Illinois senator's campaign has consistently
harped on the importance of early voting, and so far,
they've seen results. If this keeps up, Obama will have
this election wrapped up in no time.
What remains to be seen is whether the young sena-
tor can fulfill his campaign promises to lower taxes, end
the war in Iraq and stabilize the economy all while
increasing spending and entitlement programs.
In the end, winning an election is vastly different than
following through on campaign promises, no matter how
large your margin of victory is.
If he comes out on top on Nov. 4, Obama will still have
a lot of battles to fight as president.

Letters to the Editor
Halloween Horror Nights horrible
My friend and I took our kids to
Halloween Horror Nights at Universal
Studios last Sunday and had an absolutely
horrendous time.
We paid $277 for seven discounted ad-
missions and drove down from Gainesville
and spent 4.5 of 6,hours standing in line. We
went on three rides and saw one show. I'm
not exaggerating 75 percent of the time
we were standing in line.
There were so many people that I would
bet the state fire marshall would have run
out of ink writing citations.
I've been attending the event for years
and have never seen anything like it. The
Doomsday ride alone claimed 90 minutes of
our time, even though the entrance sign read
45 minutes.
Lines snaked for hundreds of yards. They
went behind buildings, into parking lots and
into other areas where they normally don't
allow guests,
I feel financially violated by the whole
experience. By the time we left, we were so
upset we wanted to stop by guest services
and complain, but we were just too tired at
that point.
After all that standing in line, we wasted


gas for 40 minutes trying to exit the parking
garage via a single lane out of the garage.
After living in Orlando for seven years
and being a Universal and Disney Annual
Pass holder for six years, I have done and
seen my share of theme park line-standing
- even during the busiest tourist season.
I have never experienced anything that
came close to our most recent trip. It was a
complete fiasco.

Gator Growl too political
I just wanted to say how disappointed
I was as I left Gator Growl feeling brain-
washed.
I love Gator Growl and appreciate all the
hard work students put into it. I understand
that with election coming up it is important
for students to vote, but was it necessary to
weave "go vote" into every skit? This was
especially frustrating because each skit had
undertones really meaning "go vote for
Obama."
A lot of people have fallen under the spell
of Obama's great rhetorical ability or have


been convinced by political ads and their
professors but, sorry, not all students are
Democrats.
It's fine to stress the importance of voting
and being an informed voter, but at Gator
Growl? I thought it was supposed to be fun.
If I wanted to go to a rally or hear all
that political jargon I could step through
Turlington or turn on the TV.
For one night, can we leave out the poli-
tics separating us into sides and just come
together as a Gator Nation?

Organizers make water balloon fight fun
On behalf of the Inter-Residence Hall
Association (IRHA), I would like to thank
those who prepared for and attended our
"World Record Water Balloon Fight against
Breast Cancer."
I especially want to thank the Department
of Housing and the many other university
offices that helped. While these advisers and
staff could have written the idea off and said
the event was too prone for problems; they
did not. Instead, they asked, "How can we


do this correctly?"
The event was a spectacular success, and
we owe that success to the many organiza-
tions and people who helped create it.
Less than two months ago, Phillip
Sussman and Sheldon Clark, IRHA's sports
directors, came to IRHA with the idea of
having this event. We knew it would be a
risky endeavor requiring a lot of work with
little preparation time.
The success of the program was stun-
ning, with 2,517 registered people in atten-
dance throwing more than 55,584 balloons.
We raised more than $1,600 to fight breast
cancer.
I cannot express how glad I am that we
took the risk, and how proud I am of those,
especially the UF student body, who came
out in full force despite inclement weather.
Record breaker or not, people who at-
tended said it was amazing, and it was. If
you didn't make it, you missed a once-in-a-
lifetime experience. As for breaking a world
record, there is always next year.
IRHA sincerely and wholeheartedly
thanks everyone who helped fight breast
cancer with water balloons!

City holds first China Fest celebrating Chinese culture


By TATIANA GONZALEZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

Dragons, acrobats and mar-
tial artists took over the Thomas
Center on Sunday.
More than 500 people attended
the city's first China Fest, which
was made possible by a $5,000
grant from the Smithsonian
Community Grant program.
The festival kicked off inside
the Thomas Center's Spanish
Court room with Liang, a gold
medal-winning acrobat, as she
spun eight plates on bamboo rods
while doing handstands, leg kicks
and barrel rolls.
For Liang's finale, the audi-
ence counted along as she twirled
25 hula hoops around her torso,
which were thrown to her one
by one.
Groups of children and adults
also watched Liu Nan, a Chinese
brush painting and calligraphy
artist, demonstrate his techniques
and explain the concept behind
the ancient Chinese art form.
"There must be contrast in the
art," Nan said as he drew two
brown sparrows flying into a tree
using watercolors and black ink.
Outside in-the garden, mem-
bers of the Asian American Dance
Team of Jacksonville dressed as
two red Chinese lions and danced
around the fountain to the beat


of a traditional Chinese drum as
children laughed and clapped
along.
Jessica Lee, a Santa Fe College
[ C


sophomore who worked at the
event, said she was relatively new
to Chinese culture but was still in-
terested in learning more about it.


"It's cool to have events at
Gainesville that don't have to do
with football," Lee said.
China Fest did have its fair

demonstration at China Fest on Sunday.


share of action, as students and
teachers of the Tallest Tree Cuong
Nhu Center showed off their mar-
tial arts skills outside.
People looked on as one wom-
an broke two boards back-to-back
using only her elbows.
Back in the Spanish Room,
Haiqiong Deng performed on a
traditional Chinese instrument,
the zheng.
Wearing a long red and gold
Chinese robe, Deng's arms flowed
and her fingers picked the 21-
stringed harp-like instrument.
"It's cool to have events at
Gainesville that don't have
to do with football."
Jessica Lee
Santa Fe College sophomore

She explained that in ancient
China, music was for self-enter-
tainment and for what she de-
scribed as "self-cultivation."
"One must have a very sensi-
tive ear," she said.
David Ballard, event coordina-
tor for China Fest in Gainesville,
said the city's Department of
Parks, Recreation and Cultural
Affairs would try to host another
China Fest next-year.
"Seeing all these people and
smiles has been great," Ballard
said.

Diwali celebrated with blend of cultures


Show's 20 acts include skits, dances


By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Fifty purple tea lights
lined the stage of the Phillips
Center for the Performing
Arts, where more than 100
performers sang and danced
in celebration of Diwali, the
Indian festival of lights, on
Sunday.
About 1,000 people filled
the auditorium to observe
the holiday, which marks the
Indian New Year.
The celebration was
produced by the UF Indian
Student Association.
The national anthems of
both the U.S. and India kicked
off the event, which consisted
of 20 acts that fused together
the traditional Indian culture
and more liberal western
culture.
The celebration blended
the two cultures through
costumes, music choices and
a series of skits encouraging
Indian students not to be-
come disconnected with their
customs.
Some performers dressed
in saris while others wore
more American-style clothing.
Anisha Kshetrapal, one of
three directors of the event,


said the Indian Student
Association has been working
on the program since the first
week of classes.
Kshetrapal said most of the
dancers and performers have
been dancing since they were
3 or 4 years old.
SFC freshman Janki
Gandhi has been in more than
40 performances.
Gandhi took part in a team


called Gator Adda Fusion, an
act showcasing both tradition-
al and modern Indian music
and American hip-hop.
A fashion show following
intermission featured clothing
from the Eastern and Western
hemispheres, including saris
and dresses.
Because it was the festi-
val of lights, colors such as
gold, teal and fuchsia were in


abundance in all the acts and
fashion show.
Family members of the
participants came from all
over the state to join in the cel-
ebration. Kshetrapal's parents
and grandparents came from
Fort Myers to watch the show.
"It's a mixture of cultures,"
Kshetrapal said. "Some of us
were born in India while other
were born in the States. Some
come from traditional fami-
lies, and others come from
liberal families."

GPD arrest


man for


hit-and-run

A man arrested early Friday morn-
ing told Gainesville Police that he enjoys
drinking and driving.
Ryan Michael Phillips, 19, told police
he had been driving to McDonald's at 3
a.m. to get a cup of coffee when he crashed
into a car at 7200 W. Newberry Road, Lt.
Larry Seale said.
Seale said Phillips did not stop after
crashing into the car and
LOCal police pursued the car for
News four blocks.
They caught up to him
at 205 S.W. Seventh Street,
Seale said.
Phillips was arrested on charges of
driving under the influence, leaving the
scene of an accident, failing to report a
crash with an injured person and violating
restrictions on a driver's license.
Phillips had a restriction on his license
from a previous DUI charge that allowed
him to drive only to and from work, Seale
said.
Phillips told police that he loves to
drink and drive, Seale said.
He also told police that it would take a
death to keep him from drinking and driv-
ing, Seale said.

HOMECOMING

Reep, Steve Miller Band perform at Gator Growl


By LAUREN BAKER
Alligator Writer
lbaker@alligator.org

After dancing a jig around
stage to OutKast's "Hey Ya!"
with UF mascots Albert and
Alberta, comedian Jon Reep
got down to business at Friday
night's Gator Growl.
In a routine using physical
humor and college themes,
Reep, a winner of NBC's "Last
Comic Standing," touched on
naked etiquette in male locker
rooms, Gatorade, Gators quar-
terback Tim Tebow and his
bottle-opening belt buckle.
"Chicks dig it, trust me,"
Reep said of the buckle, and
then pantomimed opening a
girl's beer bottle with an ener-
getic hip thrust.
"It's messy, but it's sexy,"
he said. "I'm bringing messy
back."
Steve Miller Band later took
the stage with frontman
Miller sporting a No. 15 Gators
jersey and performed hits
such as "Abracadabra" and
"The Joker."
When the band's well-known
beat of "doo doo doo-doo doo"
sounded, the crowd sang along,
opened their cell phones and
swayed in time to the rhythm of
"Fly Like an Eagle."
About 35,000 people at-
tended the event, said Michael
Jordan, the show's producer.
The turnout was about
10,000 fewer people than last


year's.
Jordan attributed lower at-
tendance to the weather and the
economy.
"We've seen a drastic decline
in attendance at events like
these in general," he said.
Attendees wiped off sprin-
kled seats before the show
began, but rainfall did not inter-
rupt the show.
Mr. Two-Bits silenced the
crowd before leading his fa-
mous cheer on the 50-yard line,
the same place where a man
proposed to his girlfriend of
three years later in the show.
"We've seen a drastic
decline in attendance
at events like these in
general."
Michael Jordan
Gator Growl producer

Three acts, all winners of
Talent Night in early October,
opened the show: singer-song-
writer Braxton Adamson, dance
troupe Sabor Latino and local
band Dear Dakota.
UF football coach Urban
Meyer took the stage to intro-
duce the team's 17 seniors, a
graduating class with 36 wins
in the past three and a half years
- the "winningest senior class
in history."
Meyer turned over the
microphone to wide receivers
Louis Murphy and Cornelius
Ingram to excite the crowd for


the game.
Past student athletes and ce-
lebrities joined other celebrities
to give their best rendition of
"Let the Gator Growl."
Former UF basketball play-
ers Al Horford and Corey
Brewer, actor Forest Whitaker,
ESPN sportscaster Erin
Andrews, comedian Bob Saget,
and former Sen. Bob Graham
made cameos.
Max Weiss and Vanessa
Douyon were crowned
Homecoming king and queen,
respectively, and walked
around stage to "My Girl."
Various student skits poked
fun at student organizations,
fellow students and rival
schools.
The theme was "Road to
the Swamp," and the host was
Albert E. Gator, unopposed
presidential candidate for The
Gator Nation. &
Albert received endorse-
ments via video from Sens. John
McCain and Barack Obama.
In each taped segment, the
presidential candidates ended
with the show's trademark slo-
gan, "Let the Gator Growl."
Other campaign videos pro-
moted Albert throughout the
night.
One included a political
ad that compared Albert with
Kentucky's Scratch the Wildcat.
"Albert is a family man who
thinks children are the future,"
the voice stated. "Wildcats eat
babies."

UF falls short of world record for water balloon fight


* MORE THAN $1,600 WAS RAISED
FOR BREAST CANCER RESEARCH.

By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Despite its best efforts, UF came up
short in an attempt to break a world record
Friday afternoon.
The Inter-Residence Hall Association
held a water balloon fight on Flavet Field
to try to break the Guinness World Record
for the number of participants and balloons
thrown in a single water balloon fight.


The record stands at 2,849 people in a
fight with more than 51,000 water balloons,
said Phillip Sussman, UF sophomore and
co-sports director of the Inter-Residence
Hall Association.
Xbox set the record in Australia in April
2006.
On Friday, participants tossed 55,584
balloons, or 4,500 more than the current
record, Sussman said.
But the event drew 2,517 participants,
about 300 fewer people than Xbox's re-
cord.
By Guinness standards, UF had to beat
both records in order for either of them to


count, Sussman said.
Still, the event attracted national atten-
tion, as clips of the water balloon fight
were featured on ABC's "Good Morning
America" on Saturday.
Although UF couldn't break a world
record, it did manage to raise
On money and awareness for an-
Campus other cause breast cancer.
October is designated
nationally as Breast Cancer Awareness
Month, and participants were asked
to make donations upon arrival to the
American Cancer Society.
Sussman said IRHA raised more than


$1,600 at the event, and he is still waiting
for organizations, including fraternities
and sororities, to donate money that they
raised internally.
Dressed in a yellow raincoat, Tyler
Baras, a UF sophomore, said breaking a
world record wasn't his top priority.
While most people at the event didn't
realize the organization was raising money
for a cause, Baras said that was the only
thing on his mind while he threw water-
filled balloons.
"I came mostly to support raising mon-
ey for breast cancer," said Baras, whose
mother is a breast cancer survivor.


UF College Liberterians sue over electioneering law's constitutionality


HEARING, from page 1


by Robert Gall, an attorney with the Institute for Justice,. a civil
liberties law firm.
Gall said the law is unconstitutional when applied to the
groups because their speech is to raise awareness, not to actu-
ally campaign for candidates.
"It's fundamentally intolerable in terms of the First
Amendment," Gall said.
UF College Libertarians president Neal Conner said the
group joined with the Institute for Justice to fight for its exis-
tence as well as the right to free speech.
"One of the key features of a constitutional republic like
ours is that people have choice and can hear from a wide vari-


"One of the key features of a constitutional re-
public like ours is that people have choice and

ety of voices," Conner said. "This law prevents us from putting
those choices before the campus."
According to Chapter 106 of Florida Statutes, groups that
register as electioneering communications organizations are
required to comply with regulations such as appointing a cam-
paign treasurer, making regular reports and allowing random
government audits.


Conner said as students, members of UF College
Libertarians could not have the time to comply with such
"burdensome regulations" or worry about whether they are
breaking the law.
The Libertarians are hoping for swift action so they can
continue distributing fliers about ballot issues before the Nov. 4
election, Conner said.
He also hopes to advertise a Wednesday meeting featuring
county judge candidate Lorraine Sherman. Under the law, the
group cannot print Sherman's name on advertisements, but
without her name, ads would be ineffective, Conner said.
Conner said they expect the judge will rule in favor of grant-
ing Floridians an injunction.
If denied, Gall said the groups would still continue to pur-
sue the case.

Gator fans celebrate Homecoming


It was cloudy, rainy and dreary out in
Titletown, but the weather did not dampen
the 2008 Homecoming weekend.
Gator fans flocked to Gainesville to at-
tend the Homecoming parade, Gator Growl
and the football game against Kentucky.
The parade featured floats from student
organizations, local businesses and schools
brandishing orange and blue and Gators
paraphernalia.
The rain stopped just in time for Gator


Growl 2008: Road to the Swamp.
About 35,000 attended the event, which
featured comedian Jon Reep and a musi-
cal performance by The Steve Miller Band,
which performed its greatest hits, such as
"The Joker" and "Fly Like an Eagle."
After the 63-5 win against the Kentucky
Wild Cats in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium on
Saturday, the Gators had more of a reason to
celebrate Homecoming.

UF FOOTBALL

Special teams puts on block party
By MIKE McCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alligator.org .


UF coach Urban Meyer is a big fan of telling his
players they have a 90 percent chance of winning
when they block a punt. He hasn't given them odds
for blocking two punts and a field goal yet, but cor-
nerback Joe Haden seems to have figured it out.
"I guess what happens is you win 63 to some-
thing," he said.
The No. 5 Gators did just that Saturday against
Kentucky, turning three blocked kicks into three
touchdowns in the first half of their 63-5 thrashing
of the Wildcats.
Kentucky came into the game hoping that its de-
fense the top unit in the Southeastern Conference
in terms of points per game could slow down
UF's offense, but there wasn't much the Wildcats
could do after falling into an early hole.
"The mental breakdowns after having two punts
blocked just kind of cascaded on us," Kentucky
coach Rich Brooks said. "It was just a disaster. It's
hard to get back on track after that, and I did a poor
job of getting us back on track."
Any momentum Kentucky gathered from
stopping UF on its first drive quickly evaporated
as freshman defensive end William Green burst
into the Wildcats' backfield and smothered a punt,
which running back Chris Rainey recovered at the
3-yard line.
One play later, quarterback Tim Tebow tacked
another rushing score onto his resume, and the
Gators had a 7-0 lead.
Green's play was easy after Kentucky's last
blocker slid to cover speedster Jeff Demps, a strat-
egy the Wildcats abandoned on their next punt at-
tempt less than two minutes later. This time Demps
wasn't blocked, and he got a hand on punter Tim
Masthay's attempt.
"Obviously, we missed a blocking assignment
on both of them," Brooks said. "They probably had
a pretty good plan, but our rules are fairly simple.

UF remembers despite 'no comment' remarks


No comment.
Wait, oops. I forgot. I'm al-
lowed to actually talk about the
Georgia game. My apologies, I heard "no
comment" so frequently after the Gators'
practice that shouldn't be called an
actual Southeastern Conference football
game on Saturday that I'm used to it.
The gag order has been placed. There
won't be any chatter about watching the
entire Bulldogs team gathered in a flies-
on-a-turd-like huddle celebration after
their first score of last year's game.
Or at least there won't be any talk
you'll hear about.

conversion after

version continu-
ously played in
the locker room
and around the
football facility.
Now, if you
find a way to put


a hidden camera
in the walls of the locker room, you'll
probably catch a peek at that massive
Bulldog celebration. There's a reason
behind these "no comments."
The tension in some of Tim Tebow's
post-game statements could've been
squeezed out of him like a recently

dampened sponge. Part of it was just
Tebow trying to keep from saying any
bulletin board material, but his eyes and
rigid body language showed the same
emotions he had after his "no player will
work harder than me" soliloquy.
Why are the players being told not to
comment? Because coaches and media
relations staff realize how intense the
emotions over this are and that, if play-
ers were to speak from their hearts, the
Gators would provide the Bulldogs with
enough motivational quotes for the rest
of their season.
Whenever a player needed that extra

SEC match

By KYLE MAISTRI
'Alligator Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

No amount of history was going to
help UF defeat Georgia on Sunday.
The No. 8 Gators faced off with the
Bulldogs for the 45th time in the coach
Mary Wise era, and for the first time
in that 18-year period, Georgia came
out victorious 3-2 (25-22, 18-25, 23-25,
25-23, 15-12).
"We didn't lose this match as much
as Georgia won it," Wise said. "They
did it with their blocking."
The discrepancy in that category
was telling, as the Bulldogs (14-9, 7-5
SEC) tallied 17 blocks to the Gators'
eight.
UF (17-2, 11-1 Southeastern
Conference) held the advantage in
almost every other
meaningful statistic
(kills, assists, digs
and hitting percent-
age), and it is now
Volleyball apparent why Wise
constantly stresses
the importance of blocking balls abow'r -
all else.
Veteran middle blockers Kelsey
Bowers and Kristina Johnson were not
effective, combining for three kills and
getting in on just four blocks.
Wise commended Bowers for com-
ing out and playing hard while dearly
being limited by a back injury, but the
production from the middle of the
court just wasn't there.
Sophomore Callie Rivers turned
in her worst offensive game of the
season, killing just six balls and com-
mitting nine errors on a team-high 38
swings.
Rivers, along with fellow outside
hitters Kristy Jaeckel (34 total at-
tempts, .147 hitting percentage) and
Colleen Ward (14 total attempts, .000
hitting percentage), failed to produce
from the left side.
"You just can't have so many peo-
ple, on the same night, play poorly,"
Wise said.
Once again, freshman Kelly
Murphy provided a standout offen-

FOOT, from page 1

teams do that, they expect not to
score. We plan on putting points
on the board, so we don't need
that."
During Sunday's teleconfer-
ence, UF coach Urban Meyer
clearly wanted to move on from
last year's celebration.
"It's old news," Meyer said.
"It has no bearing whatsoever
on this year's game."
This year's contest will likely
decide the winner of the SEC
East like it did last season, and
that is where Meyer wants all
his team's attention.
"This game will be a big
deal," Meyer said. "The stomp,
let's move on."
The Gators' offense is on
track right now to compete
with any team in the conference,
scoring 135 points in its last
nine quarters going back to the
fourth quarter of the Arkansas
game.
The Gators' 63 points against
the Wildcats were their most
since they defeated Florida
A&M on Sept. 13, 2003, and
Saturday's game was the first
time a Meyer-coached team had
put up 28 in the first quarter.
Two blocked punts one
each from freshmen defensive
end William Green and Jeff
Demps on Kentucky's first
two drives set up UF inside the
5-yard line.
Tht Gators scored on their
first plays of their ensuing
drives, and the 14 points they
earned would be 8 more than
they needed for victory.
Quarterback Tim Tebow
scored two rushing touch-
downs, the 35th and 36th of his
career, tying former Gator run-
ning back Emmitt Smith for the
most in team history.
By game's end, backups were


playing at almost every position,
and Meyer had even switched to
his backup punter.
The momentum UF gained
from the two blocked punts
kept the players going through
the game and should keep them
going heading into the Georgia
game.
"We're going into that game
on all cylinders," Harvin said.
"We're looking to get to Atlanta.
Georgia's in the way, so, like
I said, we remember the loss
from last year. So we're going
to prepare for them real good
this year."
UF cornerback Joe Haden
admitted the team is glad the
Georgia contest has finally ar-
rived, but players would not say
much more than that.

"We're looking to get to
Atlanta. Georgia's in the
way, so, like I said, we
remember the loss from
last year. So we're going
to prepare for them real
good this year."
Percy Harvin
UFjunior wide receiver

Haden did say the team
would not be running on the
field after scoring against
Georgia.
"I just want to win the rest of
our games," Haden said.
While Meyer said his strength
coaches had not yet determined
what motivational tools would
be used for this game, he knows
his players won't need much to
get them excited.
"A certain inscription on
a video wall or a board is not
going to be really necessary in
a game like this," Meyer said.
"Because the implications are,
it's for the SEC East, which is
our goal."

Jeff Demps, the Gators' fastest man,
will break through the tiniest of holes for
huge gains.
But he is not just succeeding on offense.
Sure, the freshman running back is daz-
zling fans with plays like his 61-yard
touchdown catch on a 5-yard slant route
against Kentucky on Saturday.
But UF coach Urban Meyer is equally
impressed with Demps' other momentum-
swinging play in the Gators' 63-5 win.
On the Wildcats' second drive, Demps
broke through their offensive line on
fourth down, leaping in front of punter
Tim Masthay and blocking his kick.


"I have not been around a more valu-
able guy than Jeffery Demps," Meyer said.
"Blocking kicks, catching that pass and
taking it all the way."
The Gators recovered the punt on the
1-yard line and scored a touchdown on the
next play, putting them ahead 14-0.
It was Demps' second blocked punt of
the season, the other coming in the second
quarter of UF's 26-3 victory against Miami
on Sept. 6.
"The thing they all like to say about Jeff
Demps is he's kind of a made guy," Meyer
said.
"He works so darn hard at everything
we ask him to do. That name around here
is going to be around for a long time." *
Even Demps said blocking the punt
was more special to him than scoring the
touchdown.


"Just to see the crowd get crazy like
that is just ridiculous," Demps said.
"Blocked punts are a big game-changer.
We blocked two punts, and the crowd just
went crazy."
Yes, it's good to be Jeff Demps this
season.
He has become UF's
first option for rushing
the ball, getting more car-
ries in the first half than
any player except quar-
terback Tim Tebow (they
tied with six).
Demps His 105 total yards in
the first half were more
than anyone on the field. Demps earned
his rest in the second half, as Meyer sat
him in a blowout victory in favor of back-
up running backs.


His touchdown catch caught the eye of
Kentucky coach Rich Brooks. -r
Once Demps got past the linebackers,
Brooks knew it was over.
"We were in real trouble, because we
didn't have anybody who could catch
him," Brooks said.
Meyer saw the same thing at that point
in the run.
"I started to look for the extra-oint
team," Meyer said.
Fellow freshman William Green, who
blocked the other punt for UF, sees a lot
of promise in Demps' future and problems
for opponents.
"They're going to be in trouble for the
next three years, because he's just a fresh-
man like me," Green said.
"We're going to have him around here,
and he's going to be playing."


Gators continue comeback pattern


* UF IS ONE WIN AWAY FROM
AN UNDEFEATED SEC RUN.

By BOBBY CALLOVI

The UF soccer team has devel-
oped a habit coach Becky Burleigh
would like to break.
For the fifth time this season,
the No. 7 Gators conceded the first
goal and were forced to come from
behind to escape with a win.
After giving up a goal to LSU in
the first half, UF needed two second-
period points to leave Baton Rouge
with a 2-1 victory Sunday and end
the Tigers' 18-game home winning
streak.
"When we went into the locker
room at halftime, we said, 'We have
been here before, but just saying
that isn't going to get us out of this
hole. We have to change some of the
things we are doing,'" Burleigh said.
"Our team did a good job at chang-
ing the mistakes we were making."
The Gators (15-2-1, 10-0-0


Southeastern Conference) did not
possess the ball in the first half the
way their coach would have liked,
so they changed that quickly.
Less than two minutes into the
new half, senior Ameera Abdullah
scored off passes from freshman
midfielder Tahnai Annis and sopho-
more defender Nicky Kit.
"When we talk about what we
need to change,
change it and get
'* ]results from it, that
_- gives the team confi-
Soccer depce to know if they
keep doing that, they
are going to have a chance to win the
game," Burleigh said.
Kit came off the backline again to
assist in Annis' go-ahead score.
As part of a defense that gets in-
volved in the attack all the time, Kit
has been the most noticeable of the
defenders on the stat sheet.
The two assists were her fourth
and fifth of the season, moving her
into a tie with Annis for third on the
team in the category.
Her play is getting noticed by
other teams, and it brings back


memories of one of Burleigh's for-
mer players.
"(Kit) is definitely feared by
other teams," Burleigh said. "Our
backs getting forward is a big part
of our game, and the fact that she
is scoring goals and getting assists
from that position is reminiscent of
(former All-American and Canadian
national team player) Melanie
Booth, which is a good role model
to have."
Kit's production has helped get
the Gators within one game of fin-
ishing conference play without a
blemish.
With the regular-season title
clinched and the Gators in prime po-
sition for a good spot in the NCAA
Tournament, the undefeated confer-
ence season will motivate them at
South Carolina on Thursday.
"When you make goals at the
beginning of the year, you talk about
winning the SEC," Burleigh said. "It
seems so far off, and there is so much
to do before it happens, but we have
already realized that.
"Now, our team has decided to
take it a step further."

As a team, UF hit .166, an already paltry number that
would have been significantly lower without Murphy.
Wise took much of the blame after the match, saying
the coaches didn't do a good job of preparing the team.
She also said Kentucky (20-3, 11-1 SEC) is now'in the
driver's seat to win the SEC regular season title because
of its significantly easier schedule down the stretch.

Wise said. "How are you going to respond?"

Three blocks ties school record


BLOCK, from page 17

r
We turned somebody loose.
You have to give them credit for
a good job and give us an 'F' for
execution."
Receiver Deonte Thompson
snatched the ball after Demps'
block and rolled out of bounds
at fee 1-yard line. Brandon
James capitalized on the next
play with another touchdown
run.
UF's first two scoring drives
totaled two plays, 4 yards and
eight seconds to all but end the
contest, as the Gators led 14-0
less than six minutes in.


"That's about as good as you
can get for the start of a game,"
said Meyer, who is 12-0 at UF
when blocking a punt. "That's
the first thing I do on Sundays.
I come in, do a TV show and
start watching
(punts), and you
always try to
get some indica-
Football tors."
Haden got in
on the block party early in the
second quarter.
The Wildcats, trailing 28-0,
were poised to score after inter-
cepting Tebow in UF territory,
but their touchdown bid fell
short when Haden broke up a

push during off-season workouts, the mere
thought of those Bulldog players frolicking
around the end zone was probably enough
to get that weight on their squat up or maybe
finish that last rep on the bench press.
You know it's been seething inside them
for a year now. They've probably even tried
to forget about it at times. Except, now,
there's no more forgetting.
It's here. Meyer won't admit to it, but he
wants all those emotions to come flooding out
of his players this week from the stretches
before practice to the precision routes and
thudding tackles during the game.
That celebration left a bigger impact on


third-down pass near the goal
line to force a 32-yard field goal
attempt.-
Haden breezed around the
edge, reached up with one hand
and deflected the kick, which
safety Major Wright caught and
returned to the UF 40.
Three plays later, the Gators
had another touchdown and a
35-0 advantage.
"He didn't really block me,
so it was kind of easy," Haden
said.
Haden's play gave UF
three blocked kicks on the day,
enough to tie the school record
set by the 2006 squad against
South Carolina.


the Gators' pride than on the scoreboard.
Knowshon Moreno would've run all
over UF regardless of that celebration the
Gators were that outmatched. If you think for
one second, though, that Tim Tebow and the
50-plus other players on the roster thought
the Bulldogs' celebration was just a random
act of kindness, well, that's about as likely as
Brandon Spikes shaving off his dreads.
And I offer you one more finalpiece of proof:
"That wasn't right," Urban Meyer said in his
recently released biography, "Urban's Way,"
about the celebration. "It was a bad deal.
And it will forever be in the mind of Urban
Meyer and in the mind of our football team.
... So, we'll handle it. And it's going to be a
big deal."
Now that's worth a comment or two.

Jeff Demps, 6 Chris Rainey, 1 J. Cunningham, 1

Demps was up to his old tricks Saturday afternoon, breaking off
a huge touchdown catch with his lightning-fast footwork and also
blocking his second punt of the season for the Gators. It seems his
speed|will be coming in handy for years in Gainesville. and he won't
l just be using it to rack up the rushing and receiving yards. Demps'
role on special teams can't be underesuimatea.

RB, Fr. 7 rushes, 50 yards, 4 recs., 67 yds., 1TD, blocked punt

Tebow's second rushing touchdown in the first half tied him with
former Gator great Enmmitt Smith for first all-time on the school
rushing touchdown list with 36. He should have the record all to
himself fairly soon, especially if he keeps averaging 5.3 yards per
carry hlke ne aid against the Wildcats. He had a solid day in the air
as well. tossing two touchdowns. one of which was a 33-yard laser





on the Gators' first drive both incomplete before hooking up
later in the quarter for UF's fourth touchdown of the afternoon. The
Gators were ahead by so much they never had to use him again,
but just his presence on the field made Kentucky's defense play
cautious football.
