O'Dome to host Rock Band Live tour on Sat.


* PANIC AT THE DISCO, DASHBOARD
CONFESSIONAL TO PERFORM.

By DAVID CUMMING
Alligator Writer

Video game rockers who dedicate hours of
practice to playing plastic guitars and drums
could finally take their act to the main stage.
Rock Band Live, a multi-city tour featur-
ing bands Panic at the Disco, Dashboard


Confessional, Plain White T's and The Cab,
will take over the O'Connell Center on
Saturday at 7 p.m.
Before the concert, fans will be given the
chance to play Rock Band 2, and the band
that scores the highest will play live onstage
in between bands' performances.
Even the touring musicians play after
show gigs as animated rockers.
"Every single day, at the exact same time,
we play," said Alex Marshall, singer, guitarist
and pianist for The Cab.


"Knowing that you're coming to a
huge arena show every day and
there's going to be a lot of people,
it pushes us."
Alex Marshall
singer, guitarist and pianist for The Cab

"We have alter-egos, a side project that
just plays Rock Band."
The band's single "Bounce" will be re-


leased soon on the free downloadable pack,
Marshall said.
"I'm going to see if I can play it, but I prob-
ably can't," he laughed.
The tour, which began in early October,
runs throughout the country and is booked
in four cities in Florida.
Tickets for Saturday's show are on sale for
$28 with a Gator 1 Card. Tickets for the gen-
eral public are $35.

Reitz to fill vacancies


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Writer

The ground floor of the Reitz
Union can be a lonely place.
After shops began closing their
doors in summer 2007, there have
been fewer reasons for students to
venture downstairs.
The exodus of stores began
with Lange Eye Care in June 2007.
Then, The Studio retreated to the
basement in May and STA Travel
closed in June.
Mike Mironack, director of op-
erations at the Reitz Union, said
it's unusual for the Reitz to have
three locations vacant.
That's all about to change.
By spring, the space in the
Reitz Union ground floor will be
occupied by a new restaurant and
a convenience store, said Eddie
Daniels, Reitz Union executive
director.
Daniels said he couldn't dis-
close what restaurant would be
coming to the Reitz Union because

LOCAL GOVERNMENT


negotiations are in progress.
The two food-service locations
will join Pollo Tropical and Jamba
Juice, which are scheduled to de-
but in the Reitz Union Food Court
next year.
Daniels said there are no esti-
mates for the cost of the restaurant,
but the convenience store will cost
UF about $250,000 and Aramark,
UF's food service provider, about
$100,000.
On Instead of paying
Campus rent to the Reitz, the
locations, like all of
UF's food-service operations, will
pay UF a 10.4 percent commission
on sales.
However, until the new tenants
move in, the Reitz will continue
to miss out on money it could be
making on leases or commissions.
STA Travel used to pay about
$57,000 a year in rent, Mironack
said, and Lange Eye Care paid
about $16,000 a year. The Studio
didn't pay rent because it was part

Commission extends benefits to domestic


By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Writer

After voting unanimously to increase
domestic partnership rights at a meet-
ing Thursday night, Gainesville City
Commissioners questioned the wording of
the ballot initiative that would eliminate
local anti-discrimination protections for gay
and transgender people.-
After little discussion, commissioners


voted in favor of the ordinance, which
would extend city employee benefits to
people in domestic partnerships, as well as
spouses.
Commissioner Jack Donovan said he felt
people in domestic partnerships could face
unintended restrictions from seemingly
small issues.
"I'm glad we're passing this," Donovan
said.
The Commission must vote on the pro-


posed ordinance again be-
fore it becomes a city law.
A ballot initiative that
would amend the city
charter caused a greater
stir later in the evening
when the Commission
debated how it should
nrahan be worded on the March
ballot.
If passed, the proposed amendment


partnerships
would take away Gainesville's anti-dis-
crimination policy, which offers protections
based on sexual orientation and gender
identity. The policy would be replaced by
the state policy, which does not offer these
protections.
The group proposing the amendment,
Citizens for Good Public Policy, acquired
6,343 valid petition signatures in favor of

Longest motorcycle parade
to be held on Sunday
Gainesville's roads will be
dominated by the roar of motor-
cycles Sunday as participants of
the eighth annual Bikers on Parade
for the USA attempt to break the
Guinness World Record for longest
parade of motorcycles.
Founder Ralph Cameron said he
hopes the 23-mile charity parade,
which is the longest in the country,
will be able to raise $100,000 for the
North Central Florida Chapter of
the American Red Cross and local

Registration for the parade
will be from 9 a.m. until noon
at Santa Fe College and costs
$25 for riders and $15 for pas-
sengers. The opening ceremony
will be at noon, and the parade'
will begin at 12:45 p.m. The
route, which will begin and end
at SFC, will take motorcyclists on
main roads like Northwest 43rd

New TV series to


feature UF prof.

* HE HELPED IDENTIFY TWO OF ROMANOV FAMILY.

By DAVID CUMMING
Alligator Writer

Among damaged skulls and autopsy tables in the depths of
UF's Cancer/Genetics Research Complex is a man whose work
has shocked the world.
Anthony Falsetti, a UF anthropology professor, helped
discover the identities of the last two children of the Romanov
family, a royal Russian dynasty murdered in 1918.
Falsetti was featured in a number of shows, including this
summer's National Geographic Channel show "Explorer:
Finding Anastasia," for his work.
But the TV attention won't stop there.
On Monday, the Discovery Channel will begin filming a new
series called "Royal Inquests" at Falsetti's lab, where he'll dis-
cuss the Romanov project. His time with the Discovery Channel
will be spent discussing the family's story in depth, he said.
"I've done a number of these shows over the years, and
they're fun to do," he said.
Falsetti helped analyze the first nine Romanovs found in
1991 using DNA from the living royal family. Two children,
Alexei and either Anastasia or Maria, were still missing.
In 2007, the myths of the children living were debunked
when 40 bone fragments were found. Falsetti brought back
specimens, looked at the profiles from the DNA and compared
them to the nine other bodies. Both bodies had the same mito-
chondrial DNA as their mother.
Falsetti said what makes his job interesting lies not in the
shock value of the cases he is handed, but in the process of find-
ing the truth.
"The circumstances of discovery are certainly bizarre, but it's
the discovery that is intriguing," he said.


Gainesville City Commissioner Lauren Poe discusses a proposed five-lane expansion of the South-
west 62nd Boulevard at a City Commission meeting on Thursday afternoon.

Club hosts rights talk


By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org .

UF law students learned from the
former leader of the American Civil
Liberties Union how they could get
involved with the organization in
protecting civil rights, even if they
haven't graduated.
New York Law School professor
Nadine Strossen, who was ACLU
president for 17 years before step-
,ping down in October, spoke for
an hour and a half Thursday before
fielding questions from an audience
of about 50 people in the Chesterfield
Smith Ceremonial Classroom in
Holland Hall.
"There's a lot you can do, even
before you get your law degree, to
make a difference between having
rights in legislation and having rights
in reality," she said.
The event was hosted. by UF's
chapter of the American Constitution
Society.
Michael Kassower, ACS president,


said Strossen was the most high-pro-
file speaker the organization has had
since its start in 2002.
Both the ACLU, the nation's
largest and oldest civil liberties
'organization, and the ACS,, which
was founded as a counterpart to the
Federalist Society, are nonpartisan
organizations.
The ACLU may not endorse
elected officials, but that didn't keep
the presidential election from coming
intothe conversation.
It was discussed primarily as an
exariple for progress the country has
made in racial equality.
However, Strossen said it is inter-
esting how voters could elect Sen.
Barack Obama as president but vote
in favor of measures that ban gay
marriage in California, Florida and
Arizona.
"I was upset to see the juxtaposi-
tion with the presidential election,"
she said. "But it often takes mul-
tiple tries to get legislation changed.
Activists never take 'no' for an an-
swer."

Downtown Festival & Art Show to boost local economy


* COORDINATOR EXPECTS 100,000
ATTENDEES THIS WEEKEND.

By CURT DEVINE
Alligator Contributing Writer

Downtown Gainesville will be animated
with a wave of paintings, crafts and art enthu-
siasts this weekend.


The 27th annual Downtown Festival & Art
Show, which features local and national art
and music, is expected to attract more than
100,000 attendees Saturday and Sunday, sig-
nificantly boosting Gainesville's economy.
Event coordinator Linda Piper said busi-
ness at hotels and restaurants near downtown
should double Saturday and Sunday.
"When Gainesville's wide-open streets
are filled with great art and music, tourists


flock downtown," Piper said. "It's great for
the city."
The event, presented by the Department
of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs,
extends from City Hall
Around to the Hippodrome State
GaJnesville Theatre.
Ryan Hickey, a man-
ager at Maude's Classic Cafe, said he is ready
for the mass influx of customers this weekend


with twice the amount of coffee and cookies
in stock.
Hickey is hoping for even more success
than last year when the cafe had about a 200
percent increase in profits during the event.
"It's stressful when you really scramble,
but we are happy whenever lots of customers
are rolling in," he said.
The event will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Saturday and Sunday

Four bands to play,

fans to take stage

CONCERT, from page 1
Although The Cab is still touring in a van, as op-
posed to the buses the other bands travel in, the Rock
Band Live tour has brought them to larger venues than
they have played before.
The Cab has followed the rock bandwagon in a van
for the past month, instead of a bus, growing from
smaller venues during the summer.
"Knowing that you're coming to a huge arena show
every day and there's going to be a lot of people, it
pushes us," he said.
On Shortly after they graduated from high
Campus school and joined a few tours, the band is
returning to Gainesville for a second time
after a tour with We The Kings.
"Last time we were there, it was a fun show, so it
should be a good time," he said.
The Cab, a Las Vegas band, was signed to
Decaydance Records in May 2007 after giving a demo
to Panic at the Disco at a concert.
"Everybody on tour has just grown together and
has become friends, and that's really cool," he said.
Panic at the Disco even bought The Cab costumes
for its Halloween show. Like their alter egos offstage,
the musicians took on new identities: a crab, a banana,
a chili pepper and a rat.
Marshall said the national tour has been a bit over-
whelming for the young baid.
"Being on tour with all the bands you grew up
listening to has been a real privilege and an honor,"
he said.


Commission to revise language of ballot question


BENEFITS, from page 1


putting the amendment on the ballot, surpassing the
required 5,581 signatures, City Attorney Marion Radson
said at the meeting.
The Commission must now approve a 75-word ballot
question fo March's citywide election, Radson said.
Commissioners debated how to handle the required
word limit, all saying they felt the language presented to


them did not accurately explain the amendment.
"What strikes me as most important is the ballot
language," said Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan, who felt the
wording was not specific enough.
"A 75-word requirement presents a significant chal-
lenge in order to be truly reflective of the impact of the
proposed amendment."
The Commission voted unanimously to continue the
discussion at its meeting either Dec. 4 or Dec. 18, after
more wording options could be drafted.


Survey says students want grocery store, restaurant


REITZ, from page 1


of a Reitz Union-funded program.
Lange Eye Care left about a year ago
after UF asked to terminate its contract,
Daniels said. The request came shortly
after the store's owner, Dr. Michael P.
Lange, was arrested on charges of solici-
tation of prostitution, indecent exposure
and lewd and lascivious behavior.
"There were questions around that
arrest and how that might impact the
relationship with the university," Daniels
said.
The Studio closed during the summer
and moved to the basement of the Reitz
to make room for commercial vendors
because of budget cuts.


STA Travel closed less than two
months later in a cost-cutting measure
that closed 47 other locations across the
country.
Mironack said the sagging economy is
one reason it has taken
the Reitz officials so
long to find replace-
ments for the previous
tenants.
Troubled times
have meant less inter-
est in the open spots,
Daniels he said.
Mironack said the
spots have also remained vacant because
officials wanted to know what students
wanted in the space.
A UF survey of about 1,000 students in


last fall showed that students primarily
visit the Reitz to eat. The most frequent
responses for what the building was
missing was 'a grocery store and more
variety of food, according to a summary
of the answers.
UF decided to listen to the students
but had to wait for UF's food-service con-
tract with Aramark to be signed, which
happened in August, Daniels said.
In addition to giving students what
they wanted, the new food locations will
also relieve some overcrowding in the
Food Court during lunchtime, Daniels
said.
"We're not just gonna put something
in there for the sake of filling the space,"
Mironack said. "We want something
that's gonna be around a while."

Editorial
You've got to love being a Gator. We rarely have boring
days or bad experiences. Even when we do, our beloved UF
or one of its arms usually replaces our boredom with hilarity
and our grief with jubilation.
As thoughts of last year's nightmare against-Georgia
caused your throat to tense up and a mix of pride and bile
crept up your esophagus, our Gators dismantled Georgia.
Again, UF to the rescue.
We figured we would plunk a little positivity into your
laps to make sure you get your weekend started right.
Now, it's time for this week's edition of ...



Darts & Laurels
First, we would like to pat ourselves on the back by
giving UF a thanks-for-saving-us-money-now-and-mak-
ing-us-money-later LAUREL for being ranked No. 2 on
Kiplinger's list of the 100 best values in public universi-
ties.
We may not always spend that money in the wisest
ways Stubbie's has everything but for every $53 tab
we rack up, we make up for it by dropping in at our fair
share of happy hours around town.
Next up, we would like to serve a tsk-tsk-tsk-we-
thought-you-were-progressive DART to the state of
Florida and its voters for passing Amendment 2.
We've heard the arguments for and against all forms of
marriage. There's no reason legislation should have any
real bearing on two people's close relationship, regardless
of gender. We're not mad, Florida, just disappointed.
Moving on, we would like to hurl a not-weird-hazing-
crap-again DART at Tau Epsilon Phi for, well, their weird
hazing crap. We can only hope your bonds remain extra
tight after your little incident.
Now it's time to toss a two-part,.Harvey-Dent-style
D&L combo to UF's Students Public Interest Research
Groups. We know it's a mouthful, so we call them PIRGs.
We're giving them a sunshine-rainbows-and-politi-
cal-activism LAUREL for registering more than 2,500 UF
students to vote, and an all-we-wanted-was-perfection
DART for unsuccessfully registering about a dozen stu-
dents through its New Voters Project. Considering the
ratio of successful registrations to unsuccessful ones, we
can't be too upset. We just realize how pissed we would be
if we were one of the unlucky 10 to 12.
Next on our agenda, we would like to present Sen.
John McCain with a grace-is-appreciated-in-every-form
LAUREL for the class he showed in a losing effort.
It takes enough courage for us to-swallow our pride and
admit that our favorite football team was outplayed by an
Eli Manning-less Ole Miss team, and we don't even play
on the team. Imagine how disappointed McCain felt as he
watched his opponent's electoral votes leave his numbers
in the dust. Despite his frustrations, McCain stepped up
and took the loss like a hero.
On a related note, we would like to send possible one-
time Gators for McCain Chairman Joshua Simmons a we-
hope-you-enjoyed-the-attention DART for making such a
big deal about his last-minute choice to vote for Obama.
You wasted all that time campaigning and debating for
McCain only to roll off into the sunset in the arms of the
ObamaBot. We hope you caused the stir you wanted.
Last, but certainly not least, we would like to give a
you-deserve-it-big-guy LAUREL to our next president,
Barack Obama. We have faith that you can get the ball
rolling toward the change you talked about during your
historical campaign. Now let's see that ball gather some
momentum in January. Best of luck, Mr. President.
Have a safe weekend. Go Gators.

The Reitz Union is trying to figure out what students want to fill
the vacancies on the ground floor. Here are some suggestions
for businesses that couldn't possibly fail:

Column

Anti-Palin views do not count as sexism


t's strange, really. I don't feel like a sexist.
It seems my last column ruffled some feathers with
its description of Gov. Sarah Palin as an "insufferable
Barbie Doll from Fargo." In the spirit of friendship, I would
like to offer an extended clarification of my remark to clear
up any lingering misconceptions about my opinion of the
governor. In the aftermath of defeat, she's rumored to be
considering a presidential run in. 2012. Consider this my
opening volley against such a prospect:
Palin is both an insufferable Barbie Doll from Fargo
and a tumor on the ass of American democracy.
It frightens me that she controls one state. The thought
of her controlling 50 conjures images of plague and
Hellfire. My problems with Palin are almost endless: her
scorched-earth tactics, her cultivated political persona, her
world view, her abuses of power, her hobby of shooting
animals from an airplane. Really, it's everything but her
gender. I would be just as quick to write off a similar male
politician as a vapid, potentially dangerous Ken Doll.
Everyone likes symbols. At the presidential level,
though, we prefer symbols with some stature. There are
legions of Republican women more qualified than Palin.
Her selection revealed only the shallow political calcula-
tions of the.McCain campaign. Palin can hardly be blamed
for accepting the nomination, shameless pander that it
was.
Her conduct after being selected, however, revealed
a double standard all her own. It diminishes all women
when a female candidate cries "sexism!" about questions
any man would be expected to answer.
People on presidential tickets don't deserve a learning
curve or a rain check.
Palin's isolation from the press exemplifies what
President George W. Bush might call "the soft bigotry
of low expectations." Watching her, though, who could
blame the campaign for limiting her media exposure?
Every time she sat down with a journalist, she looked


Jake Miller
letters@alligator.org


more like a deer in headlights
than a vice president.
Apparently, Palin wasn't con-
tent with being only a woefully
uninformed emblem of shallow
politics. She was intent on tran-
scending her eventual status as
a historical asterisk, reaching
instead into the dark corners
of electoral politics that confer
infamy at the expense of good


repute.
She embraced tactics that even the most awful recent
politicians had the decency to avoid. Bush's campaign
tarred and feathered Sen. John Kerry, but Vice President
Dick Cheney never brandished charges of socialism or
terrorist connections. Palin displayed a frightening enthu-
siasm for any ridiculous accusation that would advance
her own ambition, eagerly providing a mouthpiece for the
most awful of Sen. John McCain's attacks. She said what
he wasn't willing to say. That's saying something.
In the end, though, Palin was both a product and a
symptom of the Republican Party's worst instinct: an
insistence on waging a culture war that has lost its rel-
evance.
Take away the rabble-rousing about God, gays, guns,
abortion, patriotism and class warfare, and Palin is an
empty hat, a mere puppet of the most repulsive tendencies
in American political life. She is the shameful climax of
tired cultural and moral battles that distract people from
real, solvable problems. She is the dying gasp of a divisive
brand of conservatism that has worn out its welcome with
an American public that knows when it's being screwed.
She should go away forever. It's not because she's a
woman. It's because she's Sarah Palin.

University Police officer overstepped
boundaries at Election Bash
Nov. 4 should have been one of the best
days of my life. However, that historic mo-
ment was tainted for me by the actions of
a UF police officer. As I was walking into
the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom to join my
friends for the Elections Bash, a police officer
grabbed me by the arm and pulled me to-
ward her. While wagging her index finger in
my face, she told me three times, "Don't you
ever push me when you walk past me."
The first two times I apologized because,
frankly, I hadn't even realized she was there,
let alone that I had touched her, but she still
had a firm grip on my upper arm and was
yelling at me like I was a child.
She let go, and I walked back into the
room. I was completely shocked. I was hu-
miliated and hurt, but after I thought about
it, I became angry. She was supposed to serve
and protect, but instead she hid behind her
badge and bullied me. I tried excusing her
actions and blamed it on a bad day, but in the
back of my mind, I couldn't help but think
about it.
Did she do it because I am a female? Did
she do it because I am black? What if no one
was around, would she have beaten me?
Then I realized no matter how far our
country comes, there will still be a lot of igno-
rant people calling themselves Americans.

Column shows spirit of black Americans
I am a black American woman, and I am so
proud of the column Daniel Seco wrote about
the experience he had on election night.
You really got a small glimpse into the
heart of black Americans. We love our coun-
try and always have, but for the first time, we
feel that our country loves us as well.
For me, this election means the distance
between blacks and whites will be com-
pletely erased. It means that we will see one
another only as Americans.
America has been blessed by God himself.
Through all the suffering we all have had
to endure (black or white) we have never
given up. We were taught by our parents,
grandparents and great-grandparents not to
look back.
When you fall on your back, if you can
look up, then you can get up. May God con-
tinue to bless you, Daniel Seco.

Voluntary actions aren't hazing
I understand that hazing is wrong and
dangerous, but if everything was voluntary


can allegations still be considered hazing?
It seems most people who spoke to either
Judicial Affairs or the police did not state that
Tau Epsilon Phi was guilty of hazing. If the
pledges did not feel threatened by the actions
taking place, UF should not take action.
By removing another fraternity from UF,
it almost discourages Greek life in general.
Instead of focusing on brotherhood and uni-
fication, fraternities are forced to spend their
time worrying about hazing policies.
Tau Epsilon Phi has been at UF for 83
years, and it would be absolutely ridiculous
for a history of tradition to end like this.

Wasteful habits easily curbed
Every day, I am appalled by the needless
waste in our community. The four common
behaviors listed below seem to be particular-
ly flagrant violations of commonly sense, and I
encourage individuals and institutions alike
to put a stop to them.
First, we need to stop running the thermo-
stat ridiculously low in public buildings.
As Floridians, we dress for warmer
weather. When I'm wearing a T-shirt and
shorts, walking into a building that is cooled


to 68-70 degrees is very uncomfortable. Stop
giving me hypothermia, and save some
money on your utilities.
Second, we need to stop sending junk
mail and printing receipts. Welcome to the
21st century. I can check my bank statement
online, so don't print a receipt unless I ask
for one.
There's a "Do Not Call" list for telemar-
keters. Let's pass some legislation for a "Do
Not Mail" list, too.
Next, we must stop overwatering lawns.
I can't tell you how many times I've seen our
beloved university and various apartment
complexes watering their too-green lawns
during a rainstorm. If you insist on watering
at all, buy a rain sensor for your sprinkler sys-
tem. The aquifer will thank you and so will
your grandchildren.
Finally, stop buying products that use
excessive packaging. One-hundred-calorie
packs and individually wrapped cookies
have to go. Buy the econo-size bag and put
what you want to eat in some Tupperware.
If you haven't figured it out by now, work-
ing toward these goals won't cost you a thing,
and achieving each of them would save you
money.
Please conserve your resources, both envi-
ronmental and financial.

Guest column

Republican Party should return to its conservative roots


Think everyone in this country
can agree to just be happy the
election is over. Granted, some
of us, namely those who supported
Sen. John McCain, are bound to be
disappointed. An objective analy-
sis of the situation shows us that,
despite our best efforts, the elec-
tion was ours to lose. The future of
our party is clear and hopeful.
The past eight years marked the
long, drawn-out end of the era of
conservatism. Many, myself includ-
ed, supported President George W.
Bush when he ran in 2000 and 2004
because of what he stood for, but
his policies destroyed our party's
ideals. Bush hugely expanded the
federal government under the con-
servative-friendly theme of national
security, and in doing so, under-
mined the small-government values


the Republican Party has worked
to create. His overly interventionist
foreign policy, "spend and spend"
mentality and disregard for civil
liberties ruined the notion of a small-
government and fiscally responsible
Republicans.
McCain was not nominated as
the great standard bearer of the
Republican Party. He was nomi-
nated as the candidate everyone
thought would be able to win the
election. He was seen as a traditional
moderate, and people voted for him
over the other hacks of candidates
who ran against him because they
thought he could hold on to the
White House. His campaign was
under-funded and poorly run, and
he failed to differentiate himself
from Bush's abysmally low ap-
proval ratings. When he supported
the Wall Street bailout, he ruined

Johnathan Lott any hope of
Speaking Out being seen
as fiscally re-
sponsible.
People voted for McCain not
because they thought he would be a
great president; they just thought he
was the lesser of two evils. He had
no hope of winning against a young,
energetic candidate running under
the banners of hope and change, no
matter how insubstantial Obama's
resume or policy positions were.
Tuesday proved three things:
Republicans cannot survive as a
big-government party; the Bush
administration set our party back
for years; and the Reagan coalition
of conservative support fiscal
conservatives, social conservatives,
Southern Democrats is dead.
Hope for the Republican Party
is far from gone. Obama is going


to take his ultra-liberal, redistribu-
tive policies and ram them through
Congress, and people are going to
get tired of him and his Democratic
army very quickly. If Republicans
play their cards right, they can easily
get back in power and stay there for
years to come.
Republicans need to oppose
government expansion and regula-
tion of all kinds. The post-Sept. 11
civil-liberty infringements need to
go, and the moral majority needs
to realize it is no longer a majority.
We need to realistically scale back
government in all areas and encour-
age private development without
corporate welfare. We must only
use our military when necessary to
defend our nation and our allies and
to reasonably and responsibly fight
those who terrorize and oppress the
defenseless. We need a strong na-

tional defense, not an overstretched
and exhausted military.
Republicans need to become
the party of fiscal responsibility,
individual liberty and small federal
government.
There is hope for Republicans,
and if they run a truly conservative
candidate in 2012, then Obama will
be gone. This is the goal UF College
Republicans will be pursuing over
the next two years. We will continue
to work and rally for conservative
goals.
I would encourage anyone who
holds our core values to attend our
biweekly meetings Tuesdays at 6:30
p.m. in Turlington Hall, room L011.
We will work toward a new hope
and a new future for the Republican
Party.

College Republicans.

,Column


SITE: Vanderbilt Stadium,
Nashville, Tenn., (cap. 39,790)
KICKOFF: Saturday, 8 p.m.
TV/RADIO: ESPN2/WRUF AM850


We here at the alligatorSports
Brand picks column understand
how important music is to our daily
lives.
Who doesn't love humming
along to a catchy tune?
And there's no better place in
America to get a catchy tune stuck
in your head than Nashville, Tenn.,
home of the Grand Ole Opry.
While country music isn't
everyone's cup of tea, there has to
be something special about a place
where legends like Garth Brooks,
Martina McBride, the Dixie Chicks,
LeAnn Rimes, Keith Urban and
Carrie Underwood have graced the
stage.
For a little help on what makes
the Grand Ole Opry so special, we
decided to ask Darlene Bieber, a
publicist for the Grand Ole Opry, to
fill us in.
"The Grand Ole Opry is the lon-
gest running country show in the
United States," Bieber said. "It's
been running for 83 years and over
the years it's gotten more diverse.
Nashville is known for country, but
we have everything pop to blue
grass to traditional country.
"It's a world-renowned show
and part of a rich history of country
music."
For those who couldn't man-
age to score a ticket to the football
game this weekend, you'll have a
chance to enjoy Kevin Costner and
the Modem West's Opry debut
Saturday night.
Yes, Kevin Costner of "Dances
With Wolves" and "The Bodyguard"
will be competing head-to-head with
big-time Southeastern Conference
football.
We can only hope his music is bet-

Gators look to clinch SEC East with win

0 THE COMMODORES STAND IN THE WAY OF
A DEC. 6 TRIP TO ATLANTA.

By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Staff Writer
edrexler@alligator.org

A trip to Atlanta appears guaranteed at this point
for UF, but there's still a pesky Vanderbilt team in
the way before the Gators' spot in the Southeastern
Conference Championship Game is clinched.
The Commodores (5-3, 3-2 SEC) seem like just an-
other victory waiting to happen for the No. 4 Gators
(7-1, 5-1 SEC) on Saturday in Nashyille, Tenn., at
8 p.m., but that's what everyone thought about
Mississippi back in September. .
As usual, UF coach Urban Meyer's focus this week
has been on not turning his contest with Vanderbilt
into the always-sneaky letdown game.
After Tuesday's practice, Meyer seemed amazed
that hugely favored teams can lose games like this .
one.
"I can't, I can't ... How does that happen?" Meyer
said. "You're right, it does. I shouldn't say those
kinds of things because sure it can happen."
But winning these games is what it's all about for
Meyer.
"It's why you get up in the morning," Meyer said.
"It's why you brush your teeth, it's why you eat, it's
why you shave, to go play in these games. Why else
do you do this? It's not fun. The only thing that's fun
is going to win it."
That said, Meyer has not stressed the clinching
of the SEC East this week, choosing to focus on the
game instead of the outcome.
"Everybody knows about it," Meyer said. "I
haven't had a lot of discussion about that. We had a
lot of discussion about how you win that game, not
what happens if (you win)."
Simply put, losing focus on their goals will not be
an option for the Gators on Saturday night. They've
learned something from the loss to the Rebels that Harrison Diamond. Alligator Staff
may keep them out of national-title consideration. UF coach Urban Meyer stands on the sidelines during the Gators' 51-21 win

For man crush to be complete, Demps needs nickname


don't develop man crushes easily, and there
are only five that have really stuck with me.
First, there was Atlanta Braves third
baseman Chipper Jones, my boyhood idol,
whom my girlfriend inexplicably does not find
attractive. (Not sure what that says about me.)
Then came Michigan cornerback Charles
Woodson, whom I would re-award the
Heisman Trophy to every season if I could,
Dutch soccer player Ruud van Nistelrooy
and NFL superstars David Garrard and Chris
Johnson (East Carolina grads).
It takes a lot to get added to that list, but UF
running back Jeff Demps is making a push.
Through eight games, Demps leads the


-,-- Gators in rushing as a
true freshman and has
supplied the big plays
.' <", everyone expected to
- come from Tim Tebow,
-' Percy Harvin and
Mike McCall Emmanuel Moody.
McCall-in' It I'm not saying any of
Like I See It those three have played
poorly this, but Demps
mmccall@alligator.org has breezed past them as
the big-play threat.
He leads the nation in yards per carry (10.2)
among players with 30 rushes or more, and his
four touchdowns are an average of 47 yards


long. On the side, he also averages 10.1 yards
per his eight receptions. Yikes.
He has provided nearly the same bang for
the buck as Harvin did in his freshman season,
and Demps' accomplishments might be even
more impressive considering the fact he's
competing with Chris Rainey, Kestahn Moore,
Moody, Tebow and Harvin for carries.
The odds of a true freshman rising to the top
of that group are slim, but Demps has shown
he is more than the sideshow many expected
him to be coming into the season. He has zero
fumbles and, just for fun, two blocked punts.

_ Freshmen shine without Lucas


By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer

After 37 consecutive games, the Gators took the
court for the first time Thursday night without point
guard Jai Lucas.
Lucas, who UF coach Billy Donovan announced
Wednesday would be transferring from the program
at the end of the semester, did not attend the game.
His absence was hardly noticed, though, as No. 19
UF rolled over Rollins College 82-53 at the O'Connell
Center in its final exhibition game of the season.

"It's different without Jai on the court."
Nick Calathes
UF sophomore guard


SLucas was replaced in the starting lineup by Walter
Hodge, who finished the game with only 3 points. The
senior-was 1 for 6 from the field.
Freshman Erving Walker is already seeing an
Expanded role. The point guard played 27 minutes
against the Tars, dropping in 11 points and four as-
sists in the process.
He once again showed his range, sinking 3 three-
pointers on the night.
I'm just trying to help the team the best way that
I can," Walker said.
Walker, however, played most of his minutes off
the ball.
As expected, sophomore Nick Calathes assumed
the majority of the point guard duties.
Calathes dished out six assists including a rim-
rocking alley-oop pass to Alex Tyus with just under
Andrew Stanfill / Alligator Staff six minutes left in the first half to go along with a
UF point guard Erving Walker looks for a pass during the Gators' 82- team-high 16 points.
53 exhibition win against Rollins College on Thursday night. "It's different without Jai on the court," Calathes


Players careful not to underestimate Vanderbilt


FOOTBALL, from page 14

I "We took a step back against Ole
Miss at home," middle linebacker
Brandon Spikes said. "We really didn't
prepare well, and they stole it at our
house. After that, we want to learn.
Every game counts."
Vanderbilt does not, on paper, look
like it can pose a threat to UF.
The Gators have won their last four
games by an average of 39.5 points, al-
lowing just 10.75 points per game in that
span. Vanderbilt is coming off a 10-7 loss
to traditional Atlantic Coast Conference
doormat Duke, and the Commodores

have averaged just 12.25 points in their
last four games and have the worst total
offense in the SEC.
Looking at statistics like that are
the reasons upsets take
place.
"We definitely can't
Football go in underestimating,"
Spikes said. "We're at
their house, and it's (for)
the championship."
Vanderbilt coach Bobby Johnson sees
all those numbers, too, and he has been
preparing his team for an offensive on-
slaught.
"They don't have a lot of weaknesses,
but you never know what's going to
happen in a football game," he said.


ter than the movies he has subjected us to the last 10 years.
"I actually heard his band once and they sounded pretty
good," Bieber said.
"He'll put on a good show."
After watching "The Postman" and "Mr. Brooks," it's easy
to be skeptical. We'll see, Darlene.
On to the picks!
In first place with a 52-28 record is Assistant Sports Editor
Evan "I will never grow a mustache" Drexler, who still has
flashbacks of the Miami Dolphins in the Dave Wannstedt era.
Don't worry, Drex Factor, he's the University of Pittsburgh's
problem now.
Tied for first place with a 52-28 record is Karl "I'm some-
what-to-moderately proud to be black during this time when
important stuff is goin' on" Hyppolite, whose obsession with
meaningless early season NBA games is disturbing. After
watching a Spurs-Timberwolves contest go into double over-
time Wednesday, he realized it's time to get a life.
In third place with a 50-30 record Phil "I just love adding


Never knowing what's going to
happen is why one-game-at-a-time syn-
drome is at an all-time high.
UF blew out Vanderbilt last season,
but the Commodores played the Gators
tough in 2005 and 2006, memorably tak-
ing them to double overtime in 2005
before current Denver Broncos quarter-
back Jay Cutler threw a game-ending
interception.
UF escaped a close one at home, 49-
42.
The common thread lately for the
Gators has been capitalizing on op-
ponents' mistakes. Johnson knows his
team will have to be flawless to prevent
UF from booking a flight to Atlanta on
Dec. 6.


1,000 miles to my car's odometer" Kegler, who is secretly
wishing he were still on the women's basketball beat as its sea-
son starts tonight. He would probably be driving 2,000 miles if
the women's team had a contest in Montana this weekend.
In fourth place with a 49-31 record is Sports Editor Brian "If
loving Carrie Underwood is wrong, I don't want to be right"
Steele, whose obsession with the country star is getting so in-
tense he'll likely end up on a sexual predators list.
In dead-ass last place with a piss poor record of 46-34 is
Mike "Sunday night Conference USA games are the only real
college football I follow" McCall, who celebrated a Pirates vic-
tory last weekend more intensely than he will celebrate his
graduation, his wedding day and the birth of his first three
children combined.

said. "Jai was a great leader on our team and with
him gone, I have to step up and lead the team like he
did."
Ray Shipman continues to show flashes of Blil-
liance. For the second straight game the freshman
scored in double figures (12) and nabbed two steals.
"I was more relaxed tonight," said Shipman, who
was admittedly very nervous during his first game.
Donovan said after watching Walker and Shipman
in two exhibition games, he is confident both will play
big roles during the season.
"Ray and Erving, I-have a level of confidence Mi,"
Donovan said. "Both of them give us a deeper back-
court."
Shipman said he and Walker know Lucas' depar-
ture has left them with more responsibility.
"It's something me and Erv talked about last
night," Shipman said. "Jai told us that we needed to
step up now that he's gone. We know what we hale
to do."
The early season woes continued for Kenny Kadji.
The freshman big man struggled to control the ball in
the post and only managed 4 points and five rebounds
in 17 minutes of play.
With a little more than three minutes to go in the
game, a frustrated Kadji had an inbounds pass picked
off by a Rollins guard and put in for a layup.
"He had some bad plays offensively where he got
some shots blocked," Donovan said. "Both him and
Allan (Chaney) got exposed to some degree."
The poor play of UF's young post players was
highlighted by the Gators' struggle on the glass,
where they were out-rebounded by the undersized
Tars (37-36).
"Rebounding is going to be an issue all year long,"
Donovan said.
"It is what it is. I don't think we're going to cure
that problem."


M IKE, from page 14

Demps has had a ridiculous year,
and while he hit a rough patch against
Georgia last week, that was partly the
fault of the coaching staff for trying to
use him as the one thing he isn't a
wrecking ball on the opening drives.
There's no reason to think he won't
return to his playmaking ways Saturday
against Vanderbilt, and if there's one
thing his eye-popping numbers tell us,
it's this: Demps needs a great nickname.
Tebow is The Chosen One (forget
that Superman nonsense), linebacker
Brandon Spikes is the Predator (prob-
ably the best possible nickname on the
team) and Demps deserves one, too.
I have heard lots of things thrown
around, but nothing has really stuck
yet, so let's come up with one. E-mail
me some suggestions, and I'll either pick
one or put up a poll on our Web site to
choose a winner. I promise to use it when
Demps' name comes up in a story.
You can name Harvin, Demps and
Rainey together (I saw someone came
up with Mach 1, 2 and 3) or keep him
separate. Some ground rules: I don't
want anything with "Lightning" in it
because it's played out. And no "Dash"
stuff, either. That's Chris Johnson's nick-
name, and I'm sensitive about it.
Finally, nothing long like Jeff "2 Legit
2 Quit" Demps. Keep it to one or two
words. Some good ideas I have heard or
thought of so far: "Shock and Awe" for
Rainey and Demps, "The Fugitive" (he's
always on the run), "Jailbreak," "The
Dart," and "The Roadrunner." Let me
know what you think, because no man
crush is complete without a nickname.
