Senate committee meets mixed reviews


By LAUREN BAKER and

Alligator Writers

Following a renewed effort at
transparency and bipartisanship
in Student Government, a new
Student Senate committee was


created to review the selection
process for replacement senators
and committee seats; however
some senators feel the endeavor


has no clout.

thwarted his
efforts to reach out to them by re-

Several Orange and Blue sena-

STATE

Electioneering


law up in air

By SEETA REBBAPRAGADA
Alligator Contributing Writer

After hearing arguments in Gainesville on Monday,
a federal judge said he would decide in a few days
whether to take steps to suspend a Florida law affecting
political speech.
College Libertarians, filed a lawsuit
earlier this month stating that Florida's
electioneering communications law
infringes on their First Amendment
rights to free speech.
The law requires groups or people
that spend money to comment on a
candidate or ballot issue to register
Ga hlaw with the state. Registered groups must
disclose information about their contributors and report
their organizations' income and expenditures.
Bert Gall, a senior attorney for the Institute for Justice,
argued on behalf of the groups at Monday's hearing.
Gall said the law could only regulate speech that
advocates a particular candidate or issue, while these Andrew Slanill Alligator Staff
groups were only creating political awareness.
"The state cannot regulate the speech of community Voting March
groups that just want to discuss politics," he said. Student supporters of Sen. Barack Obama hold posters before a march downtown to vote Monday. The

UF's medical school sees rise in first-year applicants


* NATIONAL TREND HAS DECREASED.

By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

It isn't getting any easier to get into
medical school at least in Florida.
First-year applications for UF's College


of Medicine rose from 2,671 in 2007 to 2,847
for the fall 2008 class, said Dr. Ira Gessner,
the college's assistant dean of admissions.
The college's applications bump bucks
a national trend that saw the number of
medical school applications fall during the,
same period, according to a recent study
of medical school admissions from the
Association of American Medical Colleges.


While the decrease in applications at
medical schools across the country is rela-
tively miniscule about
UF a 0.2 percent drop it
Academics marks the first time since
2002 that the number of
applicants has not risen, according to the
study released last week.
Gessner said he believes applications


will increase next year nationally, and UF
may very well hit the 3,000 mark for the
2009 class.
He said some contributing factors to
UF's continued growth could include a
growing state population and the college's
reputation. There may also be a more lu-

Locals jump on Rays bandwagon after pennant win


* MERCHANDISE SALES INCREASED
WHEN TEAM STARTED WINNING.

By TAYLOR TRAVIESA
Alligator Contributing Writer
Tampa Bay Rays fever has swept
Gainesville since the team defeated the
Boston Red Sox on Oct. 19 to take the
American League Championship and go to
the World Series.
Rays merchandise has been flying off
shelves, said James Cattaneo, assistant man-
ager at Champs Sports in the Oaks Mall.


Cattaneo said the store wasn't stocking a
lot of Rays gear at the beginning of the sea-
son in the spring, but after the team started
off strong, hats and T-shirts became a hot
commodity.
TJ Goodman, the vice president and
general managing partner of Mother's Pub
& Grill, said it has been funny to watch the
transformation of the fan base in his bar.
"I would see customers come in wearing
Red Sox garb and then a couple days later
see them in Rays stuff," he said.
Goodman lived in Tampa when the
team began play in 1998. He used to put


the team's games on just one TV in his bar
because he was the only person who would
watch them. Now, all his TVs are tuned in to
the games.
Justin Coran, a third-year UF graduate
student and sociology
Around instructor, said the band-
Gainesville wagon fan base for the
Rays in Gainesville has
developed because the city has such a large
population interested in sports.
"There is also a huge population of stu-
dents from the Tampa Bay area," he said.
"They feel a sense of pride that their home-


town team is doing so well."
The Rays attracted attention this season
when they were dubbed by newscasters
and newspapers as the team that went from
"worst to first."
Before this year, the team was the laugh-
ingstock of baseball and never had a win-
ning season.
The team's worst season was in 2002
when it suffered 106 losses and 55 wins un-
der the management of Hal McRae.
Game 5 of the Series was suspended
Monday night with the teams tied at 2.
Philadelphia has a 3-1 lead in the series.

Officials debate effects of proposed county taxes


Alachua County Commissioner Mike Byerly, left, makes his closing statement during a de-
bate with opponent Kevin Riordan at the UF Hilton Conference Center on Monday night.


By RENEE COLE
Alligator Contributing Writer

Interest in two proposed Alachua
County taxes brought more than 40
people to the UF Hilton Conference Center
Monday night to hear officials discuss op-
posing viewpoints.
Alachua County Emerging Leaders,
a young professionals group, sponsored
two 30-minute debates that covered the
pros and cons of proposed local taxes.
If passed on the Nov. 4 ballot, the taxes
would be used to fund conservation and
the school system.
Alachua County Commissioner Mike
Byerly spoke in favor of the Wild Spaces
& Public Places referendum, a two-year,
half-cent sales tax that would purchase
conservation land and maintain parks.
Land conservation would buffer
against flooding and encircle urban areas
as the county expands, Byerly said.
He said there's not enough money in
the budget to purchase land without cut-
ting basic services.
Kevin Riordan, who is running for
Byerly's County Commission seat in
the November election, focused on the
imposition of a new tax rather than land


conservation.
Riordan said county spending is not
efficient.
"We should not reward bad decision
making with a new revenue stream,"
Riordan said.
During the second session, Dan Boyd,
the Alachua County schools superinten-
dent, and Stafford Jones, chairman of the
Alachua County Republican Party, de-
bated raising property
taxes to go toward the
school district's operat-
ing expenses.
Boyd argued in
S favor of the tax, say-
ing that without it,
Alachua County would
be forced to reduce
Rordan elementary school art
and music programs.
Children should not be sold short be-
cause of an economic crisis, Boyd said.
Jones said he worried that increasing
property taxes could worsen problems in
the housing market in the future.
"I still think the worst thing we can do
is keep putting downward pressure on
our housing markets by raising taxes right
now," he said.


Biden comes to Ocala to win support of undecided voters


* OBAMA TO VISIT SUNRISE ON
WEDNESDAY.

Less than a week after Michelle Obama
drew a crowd of more than 10,000 people in
Gainesville, Democratic vice presidential can-
didate Sen. Joe Biden will visit North Central
Florida today to promote early voting.


Biden will speak at Dancing Horses Farm
in Ocala at 8711 W. Highway 40.
The speech is free and gates open at 9 a.m.
The event is scheduled to start at 11 a.m.
No ticket is necessary, but reservations are
recommended at www.fl.barackobama.com.
Kevin Cate, spokesman for Barack Obama's
Florida campaign, said Biden is stopping in
Florida because of the state's importance to


this year's election.
With only a week until Nov. 4, North
Central Florida is a key
8lm campaign area because
l2008 of the amount of unde-
Presidential cided voters in the area,
he said.
"(Undecided vot-
ers) are extremely important in how Election


Day turns out for presidential candidates,"
he said.
Biden's tour started in New Port Richey
on Monday and will stop in Melbourne on
Tuesday and Jupiter on Wednesday.
Sen. Barack Obama is scheduled to re-
turn to Florida to campaign in Sunrise on
Wednesday.

Family housing children don costumes at carnival


* CARNIVAL HELD EVERY
YEAR ON CAMPUS.

By TAWNA DANGER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Piercing screams of horror
poured out of children's mouths
as they trembled through a
haunted house at Maguire Village
on Monday night.
Black tarp and cobwebs
draped the insides, while screams
and eerie, child-like taunting
echoed through the halls.
"The zombies, the spaghetti.
I was really scared," said 9-
year-old Akiko Smith, who was
dressed in all pink as a princess
for the night.
The Campus Diplomats and
the Dean of Students Office's an-
nual Haunted Housing carnival
for the children of family hous-
ing students is one of the only UF
events where Snow White and
Harry Potter mingle with Yoda
and Tinker Bell.
"For many of the children that
attend this event, this is the only
opportunity for them to celebrate
Halloween," said Michelle Allen,
co-chairwoman of the event.
"For other children, this is
their very first time learning
about and celebrating Halloween
because they moved here from


another country. This makes it
even more rewarding and more
of a reason to continue this every
year."
Children of all ages lined up to
walk through the event's haunt-
ed house, which was staffed by
members of Theatre Strike Force,
UF's improve and sketch comedy
troupe.
About 300 people paraded
in their costumes from table to
table, playing Halloween-themed
games and accumulating tickets
for a grand prize from the prize
table.
"Of our assort-
Campus ment of prizes, I'd
say the spider rings
are a clear favorite,"
said Nicole Oscher, a member of
the Campus Diplomats.
"Eyeball erasers and plastic
vampire teeth are both a close
second."
Each year, student organiza-
tions are invited to, help create
and staff booth games at the
event.
Some of the activities include
face painting, pumpkin roll-
ing, a Halloween dance station,
beanbag toss and a haunted
walk. Gamma Eta sorority taught
a simple version of Michael
Jackson's "Thriller" to children
at the event.


Jennifer Walker/ Alligator
Kelley Abramowich, a UF law student, helps her son, Arthur, 3, slam dunk a basketball at the
Haunted Housing carnival at Maguire Village on Monday night.


"We have been involved here
for about three years and really
enjoy getting to see all the kids
dance and just have a good time,"
said Priscilla Moreno, Gamma
Eta's community service chair.
"The enthusiasm for this event


by all of the Campus Diplomats
as well as our volunteers is al-
ways very evident and is what
makes this event successful each
year," Allen said.
"When looking around during
the event, you can see how all of


the volunteers get into the theme
by being in costume and just hav-
ing fun just as they would if they
were a young child.
The children feed off of this
and it makes for a very fun and
successful event."


Board sets deadline for chancellor replacement search


* A UNIVERSITY PRESIDENT MAY BE
INTERIM CHANCELLOR.

The committee charged with finding
a new chancellor to oversee Florida's 11
public universities agreed on Monday
that a permanent chancellor should be
found by July 1.
The Board of Governors chancellor
search committee met for the first time via
conference call to discuss how to replace


outgoing Chancellor Mark Rosenberg,
who announced his resignation last
month.
The committee agreed to hire a search
firm to find suitable candidates.
Sheila McDevitt, the board's chair-
woman, said during the meeting that
she had been talking with a university
president who could possibly fill in for
Rosenberg after he leaves in February, but
she didn't want to release the president's


name yet.
UF President Bernie
Machen wrote in an e-
mail that he is not being
considered for the tem-
porary job.
"I have not been asked
to consider such a possi-
Machen ability and would decline,
if asked," Machen wrote.
"I already have a full-time position."


The subject of the new chancellor's
salary was also brought up at Monday's
meeting. Carolyn King Roberts, 'chair-
woman of the search committee, said
other states pay their chancellors a lot of
money.
"We don't have that money," Roberts
said.
The board's next full meeting will be
Nov. 20 in Tallahassee.

tial rally, "Gary: A New Hope for a Better
America."
Ten minutes after opening the doors
to the Reitz Union's Rion Ballroom, TSF
members were forced to shut out show-go-
ing students after about 370 filtered in.
Audience members enjoyed a multi-me-
dia medley of video, music and live perfor-
mance satirizing all aspects of the political
process and promoting the fake candidate,
Gary, for president.
Skits and videos poked fun at the cur-
rent administration, the press's role in


elections and the characteristics American
voters value in presidential candidates.
Within the premise of the rally, TSF
performed its traditional improve scene
throughout the show.
Public Maxx Mann, the director
Safety of the show, said preparations
continued down to the wire.
"Our writers have been working day
and night for four days preparing and fi-
nessing the show," Mann said.
In the last ten minutes of the show, Gary
finally appeared on the stage, only to be
assassinated by an anti-Gary protestor in a
wheelchair named Wheely.
"Maybe if we really want change, we
should stop looking toward politicians and
start looking within ourselves," Wheely
said.

"I think it reflects the economic situ-

the economy."
The college has discussed increas-
ing the size of its first-year enrollment
class of 135, but it does not have the
space to teach any more first- or sec-

"We are pretty locked into 135 based
on the facilities," Gessner said. "We
have a new education building in the

He said he does not know more in-

building and deferred further ques-
tions to Dr. Michael Good, the college's
interim dean, who did not comment on

Editorial


Buzzwords

Senate actions would

speak louder than titles
We cried foul when the now-infamous Student
Government Gmail scandal dropped on SG elec-
tion day, and then we screamed for change. Our
only demands were transparency and fairness.
A few weeks and one historic SG election later, it would
seem the reorganized Student Senate is trying to shake off
any talks of corruption and get itself back on the straight and
narrow. So it seems.
To accomplish this, newly elected Student Senate
President Jordan Johnson has created the Replacement and
Agenda Transparency Committee.
For those of you who haven't memorized the inner work-
ings of SG, this means that Johnson has created a committee
to oversee the committee that was involved in the Gmail
controversy that occurred during the summer.
It's almost difficult to find fault with this action because,
in name, this is what we've been waiting for. The problem is
that a committee already exists to investigate the practices of
other Senate committees the Rules and Ethics Committee.
Johnson's newborn committee doesn't have the power to
investigate; it can only recommend changes.
Ultimately, it doesn't really do anything. One senator
even declined to join the new committee because he doesn't
think it will have any effect.
It looks like SG wants to take steps to regain the con-
fidence of the student body, and we can't complain about
that. This just isn't the way to do it. Creating a committee
with the word "transparency" in its title isn't going to fool
anyone, especially if members of the Senate are so willing to
denounce it.
We like where Johnson's head is, but the Senate will need
to be a bit more convincing to alleviate our suspicions.


Bagging Santa


If you don't want your
younger siblings to learn
the truth about Santa
Clauq, then Virginia is the
state for you (spoiler alert!).
Last week, Tysons Corner
Center in McLean, Va., was
swamped with protests to
retain veteran Santa Claus
Michael Graham, whom the
mall had recently laid off.
Graham had appeared at
the mall during the holiday
season for 18 years. During
his tenure as Kris Kringle, he
obviously made a lasting im-
pression on the community
because news of his battle
with his long-time holiday
home prompted "an online
petition and threats to boy-
cott the mall."
We thought about it for a
while, and we couldn't tell
you whether our hometown
malls have ever switched
Santas on us, though we're
not sure we would be able to


tell if they did.
Every St. Nick is built the
same (with or without stuff-
ing). They all have enormous,
frosty ZZ Top beards, and
each one talks like the jolliest
of smokers on Earth. It makes
us wonder how a town could
grow so attached to a single
Santa Claus.
We understand why
Graham was so angry about
losing his winter job the
guy was making $175 an
hour. You don't know how
many accident-prone tod-
dlers we would sit through to
rake in that kind of dough.
Apparently, Graham is
an A-list Santa. If a whole
town can learn to care so
much for a guy in a generic
red suit, then he's obviously
going above and beyond the
call of Santa duty. If that's
the case, then we're glad the
mall caved in and agreed to
rehire him.

Column

Last-minute events can shift election


Every four years as presidential candidates approach
the finish line, the election hiccups. It could be a
dramatic global event; it could be the final rabbit
in a candidate's hat (or the final skeleton in his closet).
Whatever form it takes, a presidential -campaign must
always anticipate that last-minute X-factor, the dreaded
"October Surprise." For the candidate in the lead, it repre-
sents one last perilous curve ball. For the candidate running
behind, it represents opportunity.
In October 2004, Sen. John Kerry was essentially tied
with President Bush heading into the final stretch of the
campaign. This did not bode well for Bush. As an incum-
bent president, Bush should have enjoyed a bigger lead in
the polls; conventional wisdom dictated that late deciders
would break toward the challenger.
Then came the October Surprise. Less than a week
before Election Day, Osama bin Laden released a new vid-
eotape that warned Americans, "Your security is not in the
hands of Kerry or Bush or al-Qaida. Your security is in your
own hands."
Although it was hardly an endorsement of President
Bush, bin Laden's message dovetailed perfectly with Bush's
claim that Kerry was weak on national security. In a time of
peril, people tend to seek consistency, not change. The sud-
den reemergence of America's public enemy No. 1 spooked
undecided voters, driving them into the safe arms of the
incumbent president. Kerry dropped suddenly in the polls.
Bush was re-elected.
This year, I'm still waiting on the October Surprise. I'm
still waiting on another bin Laden tape. He may resurface
before Nov. 4, and I don't know how the chips will fall if he
does. It worries me.
Sen. John McCain has already embraced fear as a po-
litical tactic that much is apparent. He insidiously asks,
"Who is the real Barack Obama?" as his audience responds
with cries of "terrorist!" His running mate, the insufferable
Barbie Doll from Fargo, accuses Obama of "palling around


with terrorists." Supporters
invoke Obama's middle name
S- H "Hussein" as some sort of vile
epithet at campaign rallies. This is
not guilt by association; McCain is
an inch away from calling his op-
Jake Miller ponent an al-Qaida closet case.
McCain won't make the link
letters@aligator.org explicitly. He's malicious, not stu-
pid. Instead, he shrouds Obama
in enigma and secrecy, hoping voters draw their own
-dark conclusions about this mysterious, vaguely foreign,
perhaps anti-American man from Chicago. Obama's mul-
ticultural heritage and upbringing render him uniquely
vulnerable to suspicions of dangerous exoticism. A timely
message from bin Laden could amplify McCain's case that
Obama is a risk not worth taking.
Fear may be all McCain has left, but it is a powerful mo-
tivator nonetheless.
So much has happened since 2004. It was the first elec-
tion after Sept. 11, and the tragedy of that day was not so
quickly dispelled. For many, fear of terrorism was still a
raw impulse. Today, national security has taken a backseat
to financial security. As dangerous as they are, the abstract
threats of shadowy organizations probably won't puncture
an election narrative so completely dominated by the eco-
nomic crisis. It will take more than a tape from bin Laden to
save the Republicans this year.
McCain is running out of time, and there don't seem to
be any rabbits left in his hat, but a devoted few still hold out
hope. Who knows? Maybe the Maverick will crash-land his
fighter jet in Pakistan and personally dismember bin Laden
in a glorious haze of patriotic bloodshed. At this point, it
may take just that.'
But don't put it past him. If nothing else, we know
McCain is good at crash-landing.
Jake Miller is a political science and anthropology senior.

Letters to the Editor
Early voting editorial unfair
I am .frequently disappointed
by the unreasonably negative and
sarcastic tone of some Alligator edi-
torials, and Monday's whiny screed
against early voting activists is the
latest and most perplexing example.
Don't you think you could
find some more pressing issue to
comment on than an occasional
two-second delay in your urgent
expeditions through the Plaza of the
Americas?
Where is your appreciation for


the unpaid civic service these people
are performing? It's not as if they
have some mysterious, selfish rea-
son for trying to ensure that you get
a chance to vote.
If you'd bothered to actually
talk to any of those volunteers, you
would have learned exactly why
early voting is so important.
If everyone shows up all at once
on Nov. 4, the lines are likely to be
long enough that some people won't
have time to vote at all. Not to men-
tion that the time you could save


by casting your ballot now, while
there's no wait, would make up
many times over for those uncon-
scionable interruptions in your daily
pilgrimage to Chick-fil-A.
Please put a little more thought
and professionalism into your
future editorials and, of course,
don't forget to vote early.

Booing opponents classless
In years gone by, Gator fans
screamed "Gator Bait" in unison
when the opposing team came out


onto the field. It was a special and
unique greeting for the invaders of
Florida Field.
Now we hear "Boooo," which is
childish and certainly not reflective
of the caliber of The Gator Nation. It
mimics supporters of other schools
around the country and, even
worse, high-school kids.
There is no other Swamp, so
hopefully we will return to a special
tradition that has gradually eroded.

Academics discuss evolution, creationism at debate


* ABOUT 1,000 PEOPLE
ATTENDED.

By MELISSA MILCHMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Students, faculty members and
Gainesville residents flocked to wit-
ness a debate over Adam and Eve
and chimpanzees Monday night.
Douglas Jacoby, Christian speak-
er and writer who holds a doctorate
in ministry, and Michael Shermer,
historian of science and publisher of
Skeptic magazine, debated the issue
of creation versus evolution in the
Reitz Union Grand Ballroom.
About 1,000 people attended the
event, which was called "Science,
Man, God: A Creation vs. Evolution
Debate," said Andrew Guglielmo,
chairman of Accent Speakers
Bureau.
Beth Waltrip, director of student
activities for the Reitz Union, said
Accent paid $15,000 for both speak-
ers.
Jacoby, who believes in creation-
ism, said in his opening argument
that he believes there is an intelli-
gent designer but admitted it's not
the only option to believe.


There is a conflict model between
creationism and evolution, he said.
"Why can't it be both?"
Jacoby said a person can be a
scientist and believe in God.
In contrast, Shermer, who be-
lieves in evolutionary theory, said
in his argument that all design is
natural design.
People want to believe they are
created by God because it bothers
them to think that they are related
to apes, Shermer said. However,
humans share 98 percent of their
genetics with chimpanzees.
Shermer said he cannot prove
there is no God but believes that
everything from planets to plants to
people was created through evolu-
tion and not intelligent design.
The event was sponsored by
Accent, the Christian Student
Association and Gator Freethought,
a group that promotes open reli-
gious discussion.
"We chose these speakers be-
cause they are two academics that
are very prominent in the field,"
Guglielmo said.
The two had previously e-mailed
Guglielmo to speak at UF, but he
made the decision to combine them
for the debate, he said.


Christian speaker and writer Douglas Jacoby argues for creationism against evolution-supporter Michael
Shermer in "Science, Man, God: A Creation vs. Evolution Debate" at the Reitz Union on Monday night.


Transparency committee lacks support from Orange and Blue senators


COMMITTEE, from page 1

e-mails, he said.
The R&A committee came under
scrutiny earlier this month following an
Alligator article revealing four Student
Government officials two of whom
were R&A committee members made
plans through personal e-mail accounts.
The e-mails, which were sent in May,
discussed plans to keep Orange and Blue
Party members out of important Senate
committees.


Johnson said the transparency cominit-
tee was created in part because of the e-
mails, but the committee's focus is to see if
long-term changes are needed in the way
R&A conducts business, not to evaluate
what's already happened.
"There's an inherent culture in Student
Government that calls for clarification,"
he said.
He said the transparency committee
was his idea and UF's Vice President for
Student Affairs Patricia Telles-Irvin was
supportive. Telles-Irvin declined to com-
ment for the story.


The transparency committee will sub-
mit a report of its recommendations Nov.
25 after evaluating the process of R&A
meetings and interviews,
Harrell said.
Johnson said the
transparency committee
was not created to inves-
tigate, but it could issue
subpoenas through him.
Johnson "I'm just the guy com-
ing in cleaning every-
thing up," Johnson said.
Gator Party Sen. William Harrell, the


transparency committee's chairman, said
the group will examine the way the R&A
committee interviews candidates and con-
ducts its meetings.
Not all senators, especially Orange
and Blue Party members, are sold on the
committee's purpose.
Orange and Blue Sen. Benjamin Dictor
said he refused to join the transparency
committee because it is primarily a public
relations "stunt" that will actually hide
problems that should be revealed.
"You're asking the fox to watch the hen
house, essentially," Dictor said.

UF OFFENSE

Gators' offense puts up ridiculous numbers in wins


UF junior wide receiver Percy Harvin runs into the endzone for a touchdown during the first half against
Kentucky in the Gators' 63-5 win on Saturday. Harvin finished with two touchdowns.


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

Maybe UF had gotten tired of
listening to all the critics. Maybe it
was something in the Fayetteville,
Ark., air.
Whatever the case, the No. 5
Gators' offense has finally hit the
level many predicted before the
season.
And it all started against
Arkansas.
UF has scored 135 points dur-
ing its last nine quarters, dating
back to the fourth quarter in
Fayetteville on Oct. 4 and continu-
ing through the LSU and Kentucky
blowout wins. The stretch has pro-
pelled the Gators to the top of the
Southeastern Conference in many
statistical categories.
No. 1 in scoring offense. No. 1 in
passing efficiency. No. 1 in red zone
efficiency. No. 2 rushing offense.
And UF is the only SEC school to
not miss a field goal this season.
"The world is starting to see it,"
junior receiver Percy Harvin said.
"These last two weeks we seem to


put it together really good. So we
are going into (the Georgia game)
on all cylinders."
Yet players and coaches claim
nothing big has changed.
Offensive coordinator Dan
Mullen points to the play of his of-
fensive line as one possible answer.
Quarterback Tim Tebow has
been sacked only three times in
those nine quarters.
"Guys are making plays.
Every time I seem to get
the ball, we're at midfield."
Dan Mullen
UF offensive coordinator

Mullen also pointed out that the
offense would not look as strong if
not for the consistent play from the
defense and special teams units.
The Gators have scored 18
touchdowns in the past nine quar-
ters, two of which came from inter-
ception returns and another two of
which came Saturday after blocked
punts led to one-play drives from

.J-latred to fuel UF-Georgia game


The week every college football fan
has waited for has finally arrived.
The UF-Georgia matchup always
brings a little sizzle down south, but this
season's matchup comes with something
a little extra. Both teams are in the top
10, and with Texas beating up on the Big
12 and with Penn State coasting through
its schedule like Ohid State has for each
of the previous two seasons there isn't
going to be a two-loss team playing in the
national championship this year.
- That fact alone makes this possibly a
bigger game than if both teams came in
undefeated. You can recover from one loss
to a top opponent, but you can't lose again
if you're Georgia and the nation already
witnessed Alabama beat you down like
you stole something. And you definitely
can't afford to slip up if you're UF and
fumbled away a potential 7-0 start against
Mississippi at home.
Oh, and what's that you say? The
Bulldogs stormed the field after scoring
their first touchdown of the game?
I must have forgotten amid the stream


Today's question: Will you be attending the UF-
Georgia game?

Monday's question: Do you still care about
Georgia's celebration in last year's game?

the Gators crushed

khyppolite@alligator.org There I go actu-
ally talking about
the ramifications of the game rather than
what will fuel the game: The dislike the
two squads have for each other.
That moment is what makes rivalries
so fun.
The smirk on Mark Richt's face as his
players showed up the Gators last year was
priceless you can count me as one per-
son who doesn't think Richt was surprised
at how his players chose to celebrate their
first score. It was the greatest "oh, no, they
didn't" moment I've seen since Ron Artest
and Stephen Jackson thought it wasn't a
bad idea to fight out-of-shape drunk guys
in the stands.

Offensive line finds depth


* SENIOR GUARD JIM TARTT MAY
PLAY THIS WEEKEND.

By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

While the status of senior left guard Jim
Tartt, who is struggling to regain strength
in his surgically repaired shoulder, is de-
cided weekly, the rest of the offensive line's
depth has finally come into place.
Redshirt sophomore Carl Johnson has
been a stable component on the line ever
since redshirt sophomore Marcus Gilbert
went down with a sprained ankle.
"Carl Johnson, we were very concerned
about that a couple weeks ago," Coach
Urban Meyer said on Monday. "He was
still in the maturation phase, and he's done
a great job. ... We're starting to get that
depth back we thought we'd have. The
last two weeks, that group has controlled
the game."
Meyer said Tartt, a team captain,
could still play this week against Georgia.
Redshirt freshman James Wilson and red-
shirt sophomore Maurice Hurt have also
provided depth on the offensive line.
HOW TO MOTIVATE: Meyer must have

all season and allowing 95.


found the right way to motivate his team
to avoid the letdown he was afraid of last
week against Kentucky.
When asked what was the key to moti-
vating a team, Meyer had a quick answer.
"Play good teams," he said. "This year
we have a mature team. We were very im-
mature last year. I saw that offensive line
prepare last week because
of the team we played
(Kentucky was one of the
top-rated defenses in the
Footall conference). The best form
of motivation is pressing
play (on film of an oppo-
nent). It's not rah-rah and what color pants
we're wearing."
DEMPS EARNS WEEKLY AWARD: Freshman
running back Jeff Demps who blocked
his second punt of the season Saturday
against Kentucky was named the
Southeastern Conference Special Teams
Player of the Week on Monday.
"I agree with the SEC on their choice,"
Meyer said jokingly.
According to Meyer, Demps' special
team success is intertwined with how
much of a threat Brandon James is at re-

Stewart on road to recovery after kidney removal


* SHE HAD THE SURGERY IN
SEPTEMBER.

By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Alligator Writer
cyazbec@alligator.org

Azania Stewart was always a healthy kid
growing up.
She had never been to the doctor for any-
thing too serious.
So when UF's freshman center found out
she was going to have her kidney removed in
September, she couldn't believe it.
"I just randomly got a pain," Stewart said.
"It started off as like a charley horse."
The 6-foot-4 newcomer was playing PIG
- a shorter version of HORSE on the
practice courts with one of her friends when
she realized the pain was too much for her to
keep playing.


She went home that night and lay in bed
until about 9:30, and then the feeling got
worse.
"I couldn't breathe," Stewart said. "So my
roommate called my trainer and she came
over to my house, and she was trying to calm
me down. She just felt around, and then she
pushed my back and that was it. I just started
screaming."
Stewart went to the emergency room, and
scans revealed her left kidney wasn't drain-
ing fluids.
The doctors filled her up with liquid and
saw all of it was going to her right kidney and
then decided to remove her left kidney.
UF's coaches didn't think much of
Stewart's pain at first.
"My coach, Amanda (Butler), she was like,
'It's fine. It's an infection, you'll be fine,'"
Stewart said. "And every day got worse. And
it was like, 'OK, you need surgery now.'"
It's easy for Stewart to laugh about what


happened now, but she's more concerned
with getting back on the court full speed as
soon as possible.
"I was expecting to be up with the rest
of the team, and right now I'm playing big
time catch-up," she said. "Everything doesn't
seem the same when I'm not playing basket-
ball."
"Everything doesn't seem the
same when I'm not playing basket-
ball."
Azanla Stewart
UF freshman center

If anything, the surgery helped Stewart
grow closer to her coaches and teammates.
The day she got out of surgery, her team-
mates came to see her in the hospital and
started making jokes and laughing with her


to cheer her up.
"And I couldn't laugh," Stewart said. "I
was in so much pain I started crying, and
they got so upset and worried that they had
to leave." -,
Senior guard Sha Brooks said Stewart has
made it easy for the team to jell in the pre-
season, even in her recovery.
"Z (Stewart) has a great personality,"
Brooks said. "She's always happy. I never see
Z upset."
Brooks and the rest of the Gators will ap-
preciate Stewart's presence on the low yck
when she returns to full speed. The England
native averaged 13.8 points, 9.5 rebounds and
two blocks per game in her senior season of
high school and brings experience from play-
ing with the Great Britain Under-20 team.
"Even if I'm not playing, on the sideline,
my mouth is so big that I'll just help them
along, encourage them as much as I can,"
Stewart said:


Gators satisfied to spread ball throughout offense


OFFENSE, from page 14

inside the Kentucky 5-yard line. UF has
started 17 drives in opponent territory this
season and has scored on 13 of those.
"Guys are making plays," Mullen said.
"Every time I seem to get the ball, we're at
midfield."
Something has changed, though.
In the first four games, UF tallied more
than 400 offensive yards only once, and
that came in the season opener against
Hawaii.
Now the Gators have done it three
straight weeks and have averaged 478
yards against the Razorbacks, Tigers and
Wildcats, the last two of which were ex-


pected to slow down UF's vaunted attack.
There are also some interesting statis-
tical breakdowns, although they can be
misleading considering
that all three games
ended up in UF blow-
outs.
In the nine quarters,
Harvin, widely con-
sidered one of college
football's best players,
Tebow has had only 13 touch-
es. Compare that to 23
and 25 for running backs Chris Rainey and
Jeff Demps, respectively.
For wide receivers coach Billy Gonzales,
the challenge becomes keeping everyone
happy and productive even when they


don't have a lot of catches or carries.
Senior Louis Murphy, for example,
had just two catches for 21 yards Saturday
against Kentucky. And while junior Riley
Cooper did not have a single reception,
Gonzales raved about two key blocks.
He's also quick to point out Harvin scored
on two of his three touches against the
Wildcats, a prime example of his biggest
philosophy: when you get the ball, be sure
to make a play.
"Everybody wants the ball. Everybody
wants a piece of success," Gonzales said.
"Ultimately, the success comes when our
team wins, and that's the first and fore-
most. We have an agreement to play as a
unit and buy into the team concept. If you
do that, you'll be successful."


Backup QB Newton stays sidelined with ankle sprain

turning the ball.
"Our first year we didn't
have great personnel running
down on punts," Meyer said.
Meyer remembered having
to adjust his plan on the punt
coverage against LSU in his


first year at UF because the
Tigers had such a dynamic re-
turner, Skyler Green.
NEWTON STILL HURTING:
While quarterback John
Brantley has gotten the major-
ity of the backup snaps so far
this season, Cameron Newton
is still recovering from a high
ankle sprain.


Offensive coo-dinator Dan
Mullen said Brantley was not
the official back-
up quarterback,
and Newton's
injury has been
Football the main reason
why Brantley
has gotten snaps when Tim
Tebow was out.
"He's dealing with that


ankle sprain a little bit like
(Emmanuel) Moody," Meyer
said.
"He dings it and we're just
being very cautious. We're try-
ing to be smart. It's not bad.
Three weeks ago he re-hit it
again. We saw him gimping
around, and he could hardly
function, and now he's starting
to get back."

KARL, from page 14
But with all the hoopla surrounding
this game, what's getting lost in the shuffle
is we're getting a chance to see some of the
best talent college football has to offer on
the same field.
Three of the top five or six players in
the nation are key elements in this game:
Tim Tebow, Percy Harvin and Knowshon
Moreno.
Matthew Stafford hasn't been as good
as many people thought he would be this
season, but he has the talent to be a first-
round pick in the NFL Draft.
. Jeff Demps may be the most surprising
player of this college football season and is
the fastest person I've ever seen.
Georgia's AJ Green, another standout
freshman like Demps, is one of the best
young wide receivers in the country and
has NFL talent. And I haven't even men- .
tioned the talented defenses the two teams
put on the field (though Georgia's loss to
Alabama and giving up 38 points to LSU
doesn't look too good).
So let's stop dwelling on "the stomp"
and prepare for the multiple stampedes to
the end zone we'll likely be seeing.
Because, like I said, it's what we've all
been waiting for.

Injuries slow blocking


By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer

UF coach Mary Wise is calling
upon a power greater than herself to
fix her team's recent middle-blocking
struggles.
Senior Kelsey Bowers took a step
back in recovering from a back injury
and went to see a specialist on Monday,
and junior Kristina Johnson is still not
at 100 percent after off-season ACL
surgery.
"Right now, we're looking for a few
medical miracles," Wise said. "That
would probably be the No. 1 thing that
would really help."
After getting beaten up at the net
against Georgia in the team's first con-
ference loss of the season, it is no secret
the Gators (17-2, 11-1 Southeastern
Conference) have been missing pro-
duction from their middles.
"What we're going to do is go back
to the drawing board and figure out
how can we block balls," Wise said.
"It's been a huge weakness of ours,
and it really came back to haunt us this
weekend."
In-game blocking isn't the only
thing suffering from a lack of presence
in thl- middle of the court.


In Sunday's match, the Gators'
three outside hitters turned in sub-
par efforts, which, according to Wise,
stem from the lack of quality blocking
they're up against in practice.
"We're not a great blocking team,
so our hitters don't see great blocking
in practice either,"
she said. "We just
have to block balls to
score points against
our opponents, and
we have to block
balls in practice to
make our own team
Bowers better."
NITrANY LIONS IMPRESS WISE: The
NCAA's decision to shorten matches
from 30 points was made in order to
level the playing field.
Wise has said many times that
Gators fans should not expect as many
3-0 wins, as anything can happen in a
shortened set.
Which is exactly why Wise had such
high praise for No. 1 Penn State (22-0,
10-0 Big Ten), who hasn't dropped a
single set all season.
"It is unbelievable, at a 25-point
set, that Penn State is going through a
league, as good as the Big Ten is, unde-
feated like that," she said. "They're just
in a different orbit than the rest of us."


Seeding only concern for UF


By BOBBY CALLOVI
Alligator Writer

Having already secured the Southeastern
Conference regular-season title and top seed
in the SEC Tournament, the Gators only
have a perfect conference record and a high
national seeding to play for.
South Carolina, on the other hand, still
has a lot left on the line.
Currently fourth in the conference
standings, the Gamecocks can rise as high
as second or drop as low as sixth based on
the outcome of Thursday's match with the
Gators.
Not to mention the Gamecocks want to
protect their unblemished home record this
season.
"Just like every team we play, they are go-
ing to really be up for this game," UF coach
Becky Burleigh said. "It's their last home
game for their seniors, and there are a lot of
factors into it."
Other than the undefeated conference
record, No. 7 UF only has to worry about
its seeding for the NCAA Tournament since
it unlike South Carolina has already
locked up a bid.
South Carolina is currently ranked 44th


in the RPI standings and could use a resume
boost from a win over UF to solidify its
chances of making the tournament.
"The implications for us is big, too, be-
cause we have to look at the national picture
and seeding in the NCAAs and things like
that," Burleigh said. "But in terms of the SEC,
there is no real ramification for us in win-
ning or losing that game.
So can we overcome that
and be motivated enough
to play against teams that
Soccer probably have more on the
line than we do."
That extra motivation
has come from the upperclassmen, who
want to finish undefeated in SEC play.
Since switching to the scheduling format
in 2004, where every team meets each con-
ference member, no team has gone without
a loss.
"The older players have taken it very
seriously about the legacy they want to
leave with this undefeated season," Burleigh
said. "They talked about that before we even
clinched the SEC against Arkansas, so that
has really kept the team focused.
"That's not something we introduced as
coaches, that was something the older play-
ers talked about with the younger players."
