Gala raises money in remembrance of family's loss


By LAUREN BAKER
Alligator Writer
Ibaker@alligator.org
About 120 people helped create
hope out of a tragedy Thursday at
the first Noche de Gala, held at the
Tioga Town Center on the outskirts


of Gainesville.
The auction and dinner fundrais-
er, hosted by the Sebastian Ferrero
Foundation, planned to raise $1
million as part of an effort to create
a full-service children's hospital in
Gainesville.
The funds raised will be matched


by the family of Horst and Luisa
Ferrero, who created the foundation
following the death of
1 -1 their 3-year-old son,
News Sebastian.
Sebastian died in
October 2007 after he
was brought to Shands at UF and


given an overdose of arginine, a
chemical used to determine if he
had a slow growth rate.
The event, which drew 75 spon-
sors, sold out before advertisements
even went out, Horst Ferrero said.
"That's very special to us," he
said. "Meaningful."


Ferrero said the fundraiser's
Spanish theme came from a desire
to celebrate his family's culture. He
plans to hold the fundraiser every
year.

Students grow

beards, donate

They raised $500

By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org
What ended as a $500 donation to the American
World Adoption Agency began with one man's affinity
for his facial hair.
In a furry display of masculinity, Ben Burchardi, a UF
building and construction senior, and a few friends have
been growing out their facial hair since Nov. 1.
Burchardi said he was hanging out with some friends
from The Navigators, a Christian campus ministry he
helped found, when he pitched the idea of growing
beards for "No-Shave November," a month-long pledge
to not shave.
The month traces its beginnings to "Movember," a
similar movement that started in Australia in which men
grow moustaches to raise awareness for health issues,
such as prostate cancer and depression.
A few beard-loving compatriots jumped on board
right away, but at least two members of Burchardi's
crew were apprehensive about turning their mugs into
monthlong Chia Pet projects. Ultimately, Burchardi's
roommate Scott Smith, a UF mathematics senior, said he
would give in to the scruffy camaraderie if Ben Nugent,

FACULTY SENATE

Faculty Senate discusses looming budget cuts


* UF PRESIDENT BERNIE MACHEN
ASKED FOR SENATE'S INPUT.

By DAVID CUMMING
Alligator Writer

As UF braces for an estimated budget
crunch of about 7 to 8 percent, members of
UF's Faculty Senate discussed Thursday
measures meant to ensure it has greater
input over the cuts.
UF President Bernie Machen requested
that the Senate's Budget Council provide
guidelines for deciding future cuts after
summer meetings. His request came after
some faculty expressed frustrations over
the summer that they were not given mean-
ingful input in decisions over department
mergers and layoffs.
The council presented the Senate with
guidelines, or ways to cut costs and bring
money to UF, during the meeting.
"To put it quite bluntly, we're cutting,"
said David Quillen, Budget Council chair-
man. "That's the reality we have to deal
with."
Some of the cost-cutting guidelines in-
dude providing incentives for faculty mem-
bers who obtain outside grants, increasing
distance-education courses and employing
adjunct professors.
Cuts for college departments were also
proposed, but they were only preliminary
ideas, Quillen said.


"If we can avoid closing a major unit,
that's great, but if we have to do it, we have
to do it," he said. "The impact would be hor-
rible."
Quillen said cutting whole depart-
ments instead of decreasing the number of
a department's professors was necessary
and would be less damaging to the overall
institutions.
Some professors questioned the council's
proposal of eliminating duplicate programs
at UF that may exist at other state schools.
UF English professor Scott Nygren ques-
tioned the Faculty Senate's vote to upgrade
the College of Medicine's division of derma-
tology to a department, despite budget cuts,
but he was assured that little UF money
would be used for the upgrade.
An optional 15 percent tuition increase
for universities statewide each year, pro-
posed Thursday by Gov. Charlie Crist, may
only generate about $11 million to $12 mil-
lion for UF, said UF Provost Joe Glover. The
Budget Council won't know specifics about
how much UF will need to cut until state
legislation is passed on Crist's proposal,
Quillen said.
In spite of the governor's efforts, some in
attendance acknowledged that the upcom-
ing budget cuts would be a great challenge.
Dianna Morgan, Board of Trustees chair-
woman, said UF must adapt to doing more
with fewer resources.
"Crisis is the great change agent in higher
education, and it forces us to look inward


and make tough decisions," Morgan said.
Frank Bova, Faculty Senate chairman,
said Crist's decision marks a significant
change in direction that will allow UF to


move forward with its uncertain fiscal fu-
ture.
"We still have a very, very tough time
ahead of us this year," Bova said.

peta2's Vegetarian-Friendly contest ranks UF No. 7


UF ranked as No. 10 for the past two years


By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF's football team isn't the only program improving its
ranking from last year.
UF claimed the No. 7 spot in peta2's Most Vegetarian-
Friendly Colleges contest. UF ranked No. 10 for the past
two years.
The youth division of People for the Ethical Treatment
of Animals, or peta2, has held a nationwide election for the
past three years to recognize campuses that offer delectable
meatless dishes.
Ryan Huling, peta2's college campaign coordinator,


wrote in an e-mail that the organization picks its final nom-
inees based on the consistency and quality of the meatless
options at dining halls.
About 30,000 students voted over the past month, he
wrote.
Jill Rodriguez, marketing program manager of Gator
Dining Services, wrote in an e-mail that UF's climb in the
rankings may have stemmed from Gator Dining's promo-
tional efforts, which included posters in dining halls, a ban-
ner on the Web site and various Listserv announcements
that encouraged students, faculty and staff to vote for UF.
Aside from offering full vegan stations at the Fresh Food
Company and Gator Comer Dining Center, Rodriguez


wrote that UF has added new entrees to its recipe collec-
tion.
Popular dishes include tempeh pizza, Asian sesame
pasta, vegan tacos and eggplant chimichurri.
"It's good to be a Gator when we're No. 7.
But we could be higher."
Shyamal Patel
vice president of Animal Activists of Alachua

Shyamal Patel, vice president of Animal Activists of
Alachua, said she was happy to see UF improve its veggie-
friendly status.
"It's good to be a Gator when we're No. 7," Patel said.
"But we could be higher."


UF tries to break record


* EVENT HELD TO PROMOTE
ORGAN DONATION.

By HILARY SHEINBAUM
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF will hold a "Festival of Life"
and try to break a world record
Dec. 3 to promote organ donation
and awareness.
The festival is in honor of
UF's Organ and Tissue Donation
Awareness Day and is hosted by
Get Carded, a student organization
dedicated to providing information
about organ and tissue donation.
The festival will run from 9 a.m.
to 4 p.m., and the green ribbon
event will begin at 1 p.m.
Participants will attempt to
create the world's largest human
green ribbon as they stand on the


Reitz Union North Lawn holding
green balloons.
Florida Atlantic University
holds the current record with 689
people.
About 300 people participated
in last year's living green ribbon.
"I got *to tell my
On story and help raise
CaipUS awareness about or-
gan donation," said
Elyssa Winston, community out-
reach chairwoman for Get Carded
and a UF event management ju-
nior.
Winston received a kidney trans-
plant from her father in January.
"Now that I have been given
this amazing gift and second
chance at life, I want to do all I can
to help others get the same chance I
did," she said.


Teen found with drugs, guns


A Miami teen was arrested in Gainesville
on Wednesday night after he was found in
an apartment with drugs, firearms and stolen
property.
Gainesville Police officers found Manuel
Chaviano, 16, when they responded to a
call Wednesday night at Lexington Crossing
apartment complex, GPD spokesman Lt.
Keith Kameg said.
"The officers knocked on the door of F102,
and when it was opened, a cloud of pot smoke
hit them in the face," Kameg said.
Officers found 8 grams of powdered crack
cocaine, 11 grams of marijuana and four hand-
guns with Chaviano, Kameg said.
Chaviano told police he had been trading
the cocaine and marijuana for guns.
Kameg said Chaviano had just been re-


leased from probation in Miami on Oct. 29 for
similar charges.
"It is common for someone who has a drug
problem to steal guns and
sell them to drug dealers for
cocaine," Kameg said. "The
.- drug dealer will then sell it
to someone who wants to
buy a gun."
Police determined that
one of the four guns, a
Kameg .45-caliber pistol, had been
stolen in a Gainesville burglary in January,
Kameg said.
The GPD tactical impact unit is investigat-
ing the case, and Chaviano is being held in a
detention center, Kameg said.

Gainesville extends


partnership benefits ____________


* BENEFITS INCLUDE
PENSION BENEFITS.

By ANDREA ASUAJE
Alligator Writer
aasuaje@alligator.org

Gainesville extended the rights
of registered domestic partners
by passing a city law giving part-
ners more benefits at a meeting
Thursday.
The law will extend pension
and other benefits to people in
domestic partnerships as well as
spouses.
In the evening session of its
meeting, the Gainesville City
Commission, led by Mayor pro-
tempore Jack Donovan, passed the
ordinance in a unanimous 5-0 vote
with Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan and
Commissioner Thomas Hawkins
Jr. absent.
The law will make domestic
partners eligible for pension ben-


efits.
Other benefits include allowing
multiple family names on cem-
etery memorials and mausoleums,
which was previously prohibited
by a city ordinance.
The law would also give domes-
tic partners more rights under the
city's building codes.
When three or more people live
together, and they aren't related or
married, the building is not con-
sidered a residential home. Now,
domestic partners are counted as
equal to spouses.
The law was passed immedi-
ately with no discussion among
the commissioners or citizens.
In its first reading on Nov. 6,
the proposed law was also passed
unanimously without discussion.
The law was first proposed in
May by the Equal Opportunity
Committee, which recommended
recognizing and providing more
benefits to domestic partners.

PUBLIC SAFETY

Car burglaries cause GPD to increase downtown patrols


By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Writer
In response to a recent hike in car burglar-
ies, the Gainesville Police will be adding extra
patrol officers in downtown Gainesville at
night.
Since Oct. 1, 25 cars downtown have
been burglarized on Thursdays, Fridays and
Saturday, GPD spokesman Keith Kameg
said.
The cars have all belonged to people out at


dubs or bars downtown, he said.
Although the burglars are primarily
smashing in windows to get inside the cars,
some of the cars that have been broken into
have been left unlocked, Kameg said.
The stolen items have mostly been small
electronics like iPods and GPS devices, he
said.
"It used to be that people would only take
things from the front seat that are in plain
view in the car," Kameg said. "Now, some
criminals are going as far as popping the
trunk and taking things out of there as well."


"People who are going out down-
town should only take what they
really need."
Keith Kameg
GPD spokesman

A lot of women are having their purses sto-
len after they leave them on the floorboards of
the cars, he said.
"People who are going out downtown


should only take what they really need," he
said. "If they are leaving their purses in the
car, chances are they don't really need them."
When it's necessary to keep items in the
car, Kameg suggested that people not leave
them in plain view for others to see.
GPD will have more officers on patrol
downtown, both in uniform and plain clothes,
in an attempt to reduce the number of break-
ins, Kameg said.
"As the economy gets worse, we don't
think this problem is going to get better," he
said.

Editorial
Something about that giant burning ball in the sky makes
us love living in the Sunshine State. It makes the beach the best
place to spend a day. It allows us to wear a single layer of the
most comfortable clothes. It even makes ice cream taste better.
That being said, damn the cold weather that has been hover-
ing over Gainesville the past week.
Cold weather makes everything more difficult. Getting out
of a warm bed is dreadful, especially if your first morning des-
tination is the bathroom. Shaving becomes more like hacking
through dense South American forest with a machete. Worst
of all, nice, piping-hot coffee turns to Yoo-hoo before you can
put in both sugars.
Hopefully, we won't have to suffer through many more
temperatures-in-the-low-30s days. In case we do, though,
we're heading to Wal-Mart to pick up some thermals because
we don't need to catch hypothermia on the way to our first-
period classes.
Enough about the cold. Let's gather around a fire, marsh-
mallows in hand, and check out this week's edition of ...


Darts & Laurels

First, we will take issue with something very dear to UF
students: football tickets.
We are throwing an even-though-the-Gator-Nation-is-ev-
erywhere-UF-is-not-one-of-the-U.S.'-outlying-islands DART
to Ticketmaster for forgetting what country we live in.
Sometimes, oh wise master of ticketing, things actually are
as simple as they appear. Turns out, UF is named after one of
the 50 United States of America. Despite UF's painfully obvi-
ous location, the U.S. was not listed in the drop-down menu
of nations that potential ticket buyers were required to choose
from. We wouldn't call that a small glitch.
There was some good to come from the Ticketmaster sys-
tem, though. We would like to give the University Athletic
Association a ticket-sales-should-provide-tickets-not-entre-
preneurial-opportunities LAUREL for selling Southeastern
Conference Championship tickets as vouchers. Selling a ticket
for a game you can't attend is one thing; buying two tickets
with all intentions of immediately scalping them is greedy
and selfish. The voucher system is the right way to go when it
comes to selling tickets for big games, and we're glad the UAA
got that one right.
Now we would like to send a did-you-even-try-the-knob-
first? DART to the criminals who keep kicking people's doors
down so they can burglarize them. Isn't it bad enough that
you're about to steal someone's iPod, laptop and jewelry? Do
you really have to annihilate their front doors, too? Obviously,
we don't think you should be stealing from anyone in the first
place, but don't beat down doors to pour salt in your victims'
wounds.
To close this week's edition, we've got another double-
edged D&L sword for Student Senate.
First, we're going to give Senate a please-remind-us-who-
you-think-you're-working-for DART for voting down a piece
of legislation that would have prevented hand scanners from
becoming the sole method of entry at some UF facilities and
events. Eighty-four percent of students voted against hand
scanners in the fall election. The least you could've done
would be to provide them another option.
Second, we are going to give our Senate buddies a just-
when-we-thought-you-couldn't-get-any-dumber-you-go-
and-do-something-like-this-and-kinda-redeem-yourselves
LAUREL for voting down a separate piece of legislation that
would have stripped senators of their ability to call special
meetings.
Senators cannot lose this right. It allows them to further
discuss issues they find important, which, in turn furthers the
democratic process. After the last couple months Senate has
had, you guys made a smart choice in protecting the potential
interests of the little guy.
That's all for now. Have a safe weekend, and go Gators.

Loyalty shouldn't be
early in the presidential campaign, when then-Sen.
Barack Obama was asked to describe the model of
presidential leadership he hoped to emulate, he
cited Doris Kearns Goodwin's book "Team of Rivals."
The book describes how Abraham Lincoln filled his cabi-
net with people who were selected for competence, not
loyalty peers and adversaries alike. Lincoln knew the
gravity of the times called for far more than an adminis-
tration of yes men.
When Obama mentioned it, nobody seemed to take
him seriously. Commentators brushed it off as a high-
minded idea that would never actually happen, just
another example of this feel-good, "Kumbaya" rhetoric
about unity. What kind of presidential ego would permit
such a gesture?
In other words, "Cute idea, kid, but you'll never do it.
Besides that, Hillary has a lock on the nomination, and
you can't win white America."
We saw how that turned out. So as the political world
chums with rumors of Sen. Hillary Clinton as secretary
of state in President-elect Obama's administration, I can't
help but marvel at Obama's gift for telling these sages of
conventional wisdom where to stick it.
Much of the reaction has focused on the politics of
the potential choice, not the merits. For Obama, this is
positive. Nobody has questioned Clinton's aptitude for
the position; even the most partisan Republicans have
a grudging respect for her esteemed reputation among
defense and foreign policy personnel. She brings with
her a demonstrable sense of backbone and a little black
book with more international contacts than just about
anybody alive. If she is offered the position, she will be
an eminently capable secretary of state.
Many have speculated about the complications Bill
Clinton would pose. I would need a book to unpack
Slick Willy in his gaudy, magnificent entirety, so I'll re-


top political priority
frain. I just hope he can stop the
jet-setting bimbo parade for long
enough to not screw this up.
The left-wing peanut gallery
has also shown signs of mutiny,
criticizing the possible selection
of Clinton as "more of the same."
Jake Miller They point to Hillary's past
letters@alligator.org disagreements with Obama as
evidence that she will pursue
her own agenda in the U.S. State
Department, insisting she can't be trusted as an agent of
change. Obama can credit himself with this headache.
His admirable message continuity during the campaign,
the droning repetition of "change," has created a mon-
ster that accepts no hint of status quo. "Throw the bas-
tards out!" goes the refrain bastardly credentials be
damned.
These criticisms miss the mark. The secretary of state
is, by definition, an extension of the president's poli-
cies. If Obama's "change" means Clinton will dance a
jig in Beijing, then she's on the next plane to China. If
she betrays any hint of doublespeak, she'll be shown
the door in disgrace. I have no naive expectations about
the Clintons' propensity for self-serving drama, but the
State Department is not the place you go to look out for
No. 1. Narcissism is a far cry from stupidity, and Hillary
Clinton isn't stupid.
I know we've been conditioned to assume the worst
of our leaders for a long time now, but perhaps this is the
first sign of Obama's "new politics." For all their charms,
it's hard to imagine Bill Clinton or George W. Bush mak-
ing such a magnanimous offer to an archrival. Maybe we
finally have a president who considers policy before poli-
tics. What could be more of a change than that?

Mariachi, flamenco dancers entertain

GALA, from page 1


Lara HICKOX/ Alligator
A flamenco dancer and band entertain guests Thursday at Noche
de Gala, an event benefitting the Sebastian Ferrero Foundation.


the main street of the plaza, their riders
in tuxedos and cowboy hats, as guests in
svelte dresses and suits mingled around
the shopping square.
"Cigartainers" demonstrated the art
of cigar rolling, and sombrero-wearing
members of a mariachi band sang in
English and Spanish.
UF students, from organizations such
as Florida Cicerones, volunteered at the
event.
UF sophomore Brittany Hegi, who
served tables, said she got involved with
the foundation this semester after seeing a
commercial for the organization.
"It broke my heart," said Hegi, who
recently applied to UF's nursing school.
While waiting for the latter half of
evening, guests browsed auction items
such as jewelry from local artists and a
chance to ride along with a fighter pilot
for the day.
While flamenco dancers pounded out
moves on a stage in the center of the din-
ing arena set up in a warmly lit tent, aro-
mas from cultural dishes, such as seafood
paella, filled the air.
As Michael Good, interim dean of
UF's College of Medicine, and his wife,
Danette, looked for their table, they noted
the significance of the Ferreros' effort.
The Ferreros shared their story with
more than 200 students and faculty at
the college earlier this semester as part
of a new curriculum to prevent future
medicinal errors.
"They've really taken what was prob-
ably the ultimate personal tragedy that
parents can experience and have focused
their efforts to bring good," Good said.


Students receive donations from around U.S.

The Navigators staff member,
would do the same.
"We thought it would be sweet
to do No-Shave November just for
fun, but as we talked to a few of
the guys, they didn't really want
to do it," Burchardi said. "But Ben
said, 'If you guys can raise $500 for
the charity of my choice, then I'll
participate.'"
"We took it upon ourselves as a
challenge," he said.


Nugent chose to donate to the
adoption agency because he had
just adopted a child from Russia
through the agency and was im-
pressed by its work.

people about his cause in an effort
to come up with the money before
the Nov. 1 deadline. He said mon-
ey was mailed from people they
knew in California, New York,
Alabama and Tallahassee.
"It's kind of goofy to open up
a whole letter with just a $5 bill
in. it, and that's all there is," he
said. "But that's what this was
all about, just people giving what
they could."
With a week left, however,
Burchardi was significantly short
of the total he needed to rope
Nugent and Smith into his month
of manliness. He garnered enough
support from his friends and fam-
ily two days before the deadline.
So far, Nugent and Smith have
kept their end of the bargain, and
Burchardi estimates his group of
beard-growers to be 10 to 12 mem-
bers strong. The money raised
went to the adoption agency's
Orphan's Ticket Home campaign,
which sends children from across
the world to their new parents in
other countries.
"I feel that if nothing else, we
were productive," said David
Burns, member of The Navigators
and a No-Shave November par-
ticipant.
As for Smith, he said he was-
glad to be part of the experience
and didn't get in trouble at his of-
fice job, as he initially feared.
"It's been annoying at times,
and I can't wait to shave it off, but
it has been a fun experience since
we got to do it together," he said.


Bright Futures would

not cover tuition hike;

TUITION, from page 1

instead of implementing across-the-board raises.
Mac McGriff, vice chairman of UF's Board of Trustees,
said UF's board would probably increase tuition by the full
15 percent.
McGriff said the cost shouldered by each student would
be minimal, but the overall benefits to state universities
would be considerable.
"We're talking, you got to drink two less, three less
Starbucks a week, and you make it up on a weekly basis,"
McGriff joked.
Bill Edmonds, Board of Governors spokesman, said a
full-time student would have to pay about $350 more a year
in tuition if a university decided to make the full 15 percent
tuition hike.
Edmonds said if all 11 universities raised tuition by 15
percent next year, it would generate $72 million more than if
they only raised tuition to match inflation.
That number would soar to $538 million in the 2015-2016
academic year, bringing in about $1.5 billion over the next
seven years, according to numbers from the board.
However, just because universities have the option to
raise tuition by 15 percent doesn't mean they
*-ag.. will. Of the five universities allowed to raise
News tuition up to 15 percent in 2008-2009, only four
did. UCF raised tuition 9 percent.
UF Provost Joe Glover said Crist's proposal
would lend more stability to UF's revenue stream. With UF
in charge of its tuition hikes, it could begin planning years in
advance how it would spend the money.
Sheila McDevitt, Board of Governors chairwoman, said
after the meeting that the plan would make tuition more
predictable for students.
McDevitt said it was often hard to tell if the Legislature
would raise tuition, but if Crist's proposal passes, the board
will likely ask universities to submit three-year proposals
detailing tuition-hiking plans.
Glover said UF would use the extra money to address its
high student-faculty ratio and reduce class sizes.
If UF decides to increase tuition to match the national
average, he said it would take about seven or eight years to
catch up.
UF charges about $3,800 in tuition and fees, and the na-
tional average is between $6,500 and $6,900.
Glover cautioned that Crist's plan was not a cure-all.
State funding cuts that UF has already absorbed, combined
with cuts expected during the next legislative session, will
not be completely covered by tuition increases, he said.
"Next year is going to be, still, a difficult year at the
University of Florida and every university in the state," he
said.
Bob Graham, former Florida governor and U.S. sena-
tor who sued the Legislature to remove its tuition-setting
power, said he liked Crist's proposal but worried it would
give the Legislature an excuse to cut more funding for the
state's universities.
If that happens, Graham said, students and their fami-
lies would be paying more but wouldn't be getting a better
education. He said he wants the plan to include a binding
commitment from the Legislature to keep funding at a cer-
tain level.
The Freshman Freeze
While universities will be able to charge higher tuition,
the board voted to maintain its current hold on freshman
enrollment.
The cap, which limits freshman enrollment at state uni-
versities to about 38,500 because of a lack of funds, will
expire in 2009-2010 as planned. However, the board voted to
give its chancellor the authority to lift the cap at a university
if the university requests it and meets certain criteria.
McGriff, filling in for UF President Bernie Machen, said
after the meeting that UF is fine with the cap because it is
shrinking its enrollment. Machen is abroad in Iran.
A decision on the board's role in the selection of univer-
sity presidents was put off because of unclear language in
the regulation.

Code officers learn defense


Increased violence

prompts class

By FAITH REAVES
Alligator Writer

In an effort to protect themselves from a
job that can be more dangerous than expect-
ed, Gainesville's code enforcement officers
will all be trained in self-defense.
The Florida Association of Code
Enforcement Inc. began sponsoring state-
wide self-defense training for the officers in
October.
Three of the attendees from the first class
were officers from Gainesville, who hope to
bring the training back home.
The new self-defense classes come at a
time of increased violence.
A code enforcement officer was shot and
killed while working in Aurora, Colo., on
Nov. 13, said Jim Garrett, Gainesville's code
enforcement manager.
On Friday, Jason Hendricks, a Pensacola
code officer, was attacked by a man wield-
ing a meat cleaver while doing a routine
inspection, according to the Association of
Code Enforcement Web site. Hendricks is
recovering.
Code enforcement officers' responsibili-
ties generate hostility, Garrett said.
They serve violation notices and place
liens on property, bills that are owed to the
government.
They can also be authorized to physically
remove cars and tear down homes, he said.
Although Gainesville hasn't had an at-
tack in more than 15 years, Garrett said it
could only be a matter of time given the high


number of cases the city deals with. Officers
have completed 10,400 cases this year alone,
he said.
The division hopes to cut costs by, work-
ing with local enforcement agencies to bring
the founders of the self-defense program to
the area to teach the course, he said.
"We have a staff of 19 and want everyone
to be trained," he said.
The division also plans on working with
city officials to have them trained, he said.
Their training would focus more on work-
place violence.
"We have a staff of 19 and want
everyone to be trained."
Jim Garrett
Gainesville code enforcement manager


Although the self-defense training is new,
the code enforcement division's safety team
has already worked to get officers strobe
lights on their cars, identified vehicles and
uniforms, Garrett said.
Striking an officer in uniform is a felony,
so the uniform discourages possible attacks,
he said.
In the future, they would like to add ra-
dios to officers' cars, giving them a direct
link to the Gainesville Police in case there is
danger, he said.
The public can also help keep officers
safe.
If people witness a confrontation where a
code officer could be in danger, they should
call the police, he said.
Code enforcement officers protect neigh-
borhoods, property values and the quality of
life, Garrett said.
"And they do it at risk to themselves," he
said.

STUDENT LIFE

iBottle collects, recycles


By CLARA CRABTREE
Alligator Contributing Writer

Halloween may be long gone, but one
UF graduate student is still sporting a
costume.
Dressed as a water bottle, Alexis Huille
frequents apartment complexes with fel-
low grad student Shelfy Feng, collecting
cans, unopened water bottles and empty
water bottles to raise recycling awareness.
The duo also collects food and un-
opened bottles as part of their project
called iBottle.
Huille and Feng donate the goods to
the Bread of the Mighty Food Bank, a
nonprofit organization that coordinates
the collection and distribution of food and
other essentials to nonprofit programs
that help the needy.
"The costume sparks interest," said
Ross Friedman, project volunteer and
UF Chinese language senior. "We make
people laugh and then hope they donate
food."
Friedman said project iBottle is also
collecting goods on game days, in ad-
dition to collecting cans and bottles at
complexes such as Campus Lodge and
University Commons Condos.
By frequenting tailgates dressed in
the water bottle costume, Huille helps
the project target Gainesville residents, as
well as fans of opposing teams.
"We get a great response from people,"
Friedman said. "It's starting here in
Gainesville, but maybe other fans can
take it back with them. We hope for it to
become viral."
The project started as a way to collect


and recycle empty water bottles, Huille
said.
But throughout the past few weeks,
the water bottle costume has become
somewhat of an icon, and the project has
developed.
"We didn't know how people would
react," Huille said. "But now it's expand-
ed to meet a new objective and a new
goal with the canned goods and water
bottles."
"We accept donations of
anything from anybody. The
economy is out of whack, and
there are a lot of people in
need for various reasons."
Anna Zwanziger
Bread of the Mighty Food Bank em-
ployee


The goods will be donated in time for
Thanksgiving, he said.
Anna Zwanziger, Bread of the Mighty
Food Bank employee, said the organiza-
tion serves five counties and 150 distribu-
tion sites.
"We accept donations of anything from
anybody," she said. "The economy is out
of whack, and there are a lot of people in
need for various reasons."
While Huille originally viewed iBottle
as a short-term project, he said he would
be happy to see it continue in the future.
"We're evolving day by day, but I want
to keep doing what we're doing because
it works," he said. "I'm trying to leave
something behind."

Gators look to return to winning ways at home


By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer
kmajstri@alligator.org

UF lost its last match -
and its slim conference lead
- to Kentucky on Sunday,
but the Gators are far from
out of the driver's seat.
With three conference
matches remaining, UF is
guaranteed at least a share of
the Southeastern Conference
title if it wins out.
The first step in bring-
ing an 18th consecutive
title to Gainesville is down-
ing Mississippi State in
the O'Connell Center at 7
tonight.
"The coaches are defi-
nitely emphasizing that we
control the SEC, it's in our
hands," junior libero Elyse
Cusack said.
Only the Gators final con-
ference match against South
Carolina will be played away
from home. They are 12-0 this
season in the O'Dome.


After dropping its second
match of the year to Georgia
on Oct. 26, UF had the chance
to return home and regain its"
winning form.
The Gators (21-3, 15-2
SEC) have the same oppor-
tunity this :.weekend with
Mississippi State (6-22, 1-16
SEC) and Alabama (15-11, 8-9
SEC) in town, and UF coach
Mary Wise is looking for the

around.
Any
comb in a -
tion other
I than 3-0
doesn't get
it done,"
Wise she said of
the remain-
ing schedule.
The team chalked up
the loss to the Wildcats as
nothing more than facing
a tough top-20 team on the
road, and Wise credited
much of Kentucky's success

* THE GATORS HAVE LOST IN TWO
STRAIGHT ROUND-OF-16 GAMES.

By BOBBY CALLOVI
Alligator Writer
bcallovi@alligator.org

No one on the UF soccer team has
forgotten how the last two seasons ended
- not even this year's 16 freshmen.
The Gators have been eliminated in the
Round of 16 both times.
On Sunday, they have their chance
to end that streak against Texas A&M at
James G. Pressly Stadium at 1 p.m.
The memories of the losses are still viv-
id in the upperclassmen's heads, and they
have been passing those images down to
the newcomers.
"We've spoken with the freshmen
about (what to expect), to put their minds
right and explain what we have been
through losing the past two years," junior
defender Lauren Hyde said.
With the large group of freshmen re-
placing the eight seniors from last year's
squad, many did not expect the Gators


back in the Round of 16. UF was thought
to be in a rebuilding year.
The Gators put that notion to rest
by going undefeated in regular season
Southeastern Conference play.
"Everyone called this year a 'rebuild-
ing' year for us, so going into the season,
that's kind of disheartening to you," Hyde
said. "You don't want to be called that, so
to be able to show those people that this
hasn't been a rebuilding year, and we
have a really good chance to make it past
where anyone has been from last year's
team is going to be a really big step."
Most of those claims of rebuilding
came from outside the team, because from
the beginning of the season, one of the
goals the Gators set was to make it past
the Round of 16.
UF coach' Becky Burleigh never
doubted her team would reach its goals,
but with so many new faces, she did not
know what to expect from the team early
in the season.
"We had so many unknowns with this

Gators have home-field advantage this year


SOCCER, from page 11

many freshmen," she said. "Not only do you not know
what they are going to bring, but it's also difficult to
know how they are going to mesh.
"Early in the season, that was tough to tell, but as
the season progresses, we certainly saw signs that this
team had something intangible."
Losing eight seniors, all of whom played significant-
ly last season, usually would hurt a team's chemistry.
But this year's squad has come together to develop
more of a team-first attitude than in the past.
Not only do the Gators feel they have a better mind-
set to handle the match versus the Aggies, they also


hold home-field advantage, something they did not
have the previous two years.
Both years, UF had to make trips to California
f- it faced Southern Cal in 2007 and
UCLA a year earlier. Elliott said the
trips really took tolls on the team.
The Gators will need to take ad-
vantage of the comfort of playing at
home if they are to end the streak
and silence the thoughts of outsid-
ers.
Hyde "When someone thinks of
Florida, (they are) like, 'Oh, well they lose in the Sweet
16,'" Hyde said. "But this year, I feel, is going to be
different."


UF meeting preseason goals despite loss


VOLLEY, from page 11

to the support of its raucous home
crowd, which showed up to cheer
against the Gators and for a poten-
tial share of the SEC crown.
"For years, we've gone up to
Lexington, and you could take the
entire decade of the '90s and com-
bine that to get the attendance that
there was on Sunday," Wise said.
Freshman setter Kelly Murphy
said it's good for UF to be playing
at home after a loss, because the
fan support gives the team a huge
boost.
"When you play at home, you
know that the fans are on your
side," she said. "That's part of the
reason that Kentucky played so


well last weekend."
In the two road matches against
Mississippi State and Alabama this
season, UF handled both teams
easily, sweeping the Bulldogs and
needing just four sets to defeat the
Crimson Tide.


Volleyball


Now, there is
much more on the
line, and Wise's
team will have to
handle the pres-
sure of finishing
off a successful


SEC run.
Though the players were full of
one-game-at-a-time cliches before
Thursday's practice, Wise has not
made talking about the magnitude
of the home stretch off limits to her
squad.


"It's always good to step back
and look at the big picture, and the
big picture is that our destiny is in
our own hands," she said. "We're
not having to sit here and hope
that this team wins or this team
loses."
Before the season started, Wise
set two goals for her team to reach
by the end of conference play: win
an SEC title and play the best vol-
leyball of the season at the end of
the schedule.
A three-game winning streak
will accomplish the first objective,
and Wise said the team is playing
at its highest level right now.
"I don't think there's an aspect
of the game that isn't significantly
better than when we started in
August," she said.

UF MEN'S BASKETBALL

Gators overcome poor shooting to down Thunderbirds


By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
rnliferdinando@alligator.org

UF coach Billy Donovan said
earlier this year his team would
live and die by its outside shoot-
ing.
Thursday night, the Gators al-
most dug their own grave.
After knocking down 14 3-
point sots against Bradley on
Sunday, UF finished the first half
of Thursday's 64-50 win against
Southern Utah without making a
single shot from behind the arc.
Dan Werner saved UF's 546-
game streak of at least one 3-point
basket plr match when he sank the
Gators' only one of the night with
22 seconds to go.
It would have been the first


time since UF's 81-60 loss to
Kentucky in 1992 that the Gators
failed to make a three.
"Thank God Dan Werner
knocked a three down, or we
wouldn't be doing many shooting
clinics here anymore," Donovan
said.
UF was 1 of 16 from distance on
the night.
"We could not throw the ball in
the ocean tonight," Donovan said.
Despite its poor shooting per-
formance, No. 18 UF (3-0) man-
aged to claw its way to a win.
On a night when almost nothing
fell the Gators' way on the outside,
the much-maligned frontcourt had
its best game of the season.
Center Alex Tyus (8 points) and
his backup, freshman Kenny Kadji,
combined for 16 points against the


Thunderbirds.
The 6-foot-8 sophomore looked
more comfortable in the paint than
he had all season. Tyus displayed
an array of post moves ranging
from rim-rattling
dunks to jump
shots.
"Coach has
been stressing
that the front-
court needs to
pick it up, and
Tyus we really tried
to make that the
focus," Tyus said.
For the first time all year, Kadji
showed signs of life offensively.
The freshman brought the
crowd to its feet when he practi-
cally took off from the foul line
on a fast-break dunk with a little


more than 11 minutes left in the
first half.
"It was pretty close (to the foul
line)," Kadji said.
It was arguably the most ex-
citing play the Gators have had
through their first three games.
"I had a talk with Coach before
the game, and he just told me to be
aggressive any time I get the ball,"
Kadji said.
Kadji, who Donovan said has
been limited by fatigue during the
early part of the season, played 16
minutes in the win.
Even freshman forward Allan
Chaney got in on the act, scoring 6
points off the bench.
Thirty-eight of the Gators' 64
points came in the paint.
Ray Shipman continues to play
the role of lockdown defender. ,


The athletic freshman wing
nabbed four steals against
Southern Utah.
"He changed the game on
the defensive end of the floor,"
Donovan said.
Point guard Erving Walker
'had one of the hardest nights
of his short career against the
Thunderbirds, finishing the game
shooting 1 of 4 from the field.
Nick Calathes (18 points) was
the only Gator to finish in double
figures.
"Sometimes you learn your
most valuable lessons when
you have your most adversity,"
Donovan said.
The Gators will face Syracuse
on Monday night in the semifinal
round of the O'Reilly Auto Parts
CBE Classic in Kansas City, Mo.


UF defense keys second straight rout in 82-46 win


* OPPONENTS HAVE SHOT UNDER
25 PERCENT THE LAST TWO GAMES.

By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Alligator Writer
cyazbec@alligator.org

With a showdown at No. 22 FSU looming,
the UF women's basketball team is starting to
figure out what it needs to do defensively to
win games.
Their defensive effort Thursday night
against Stetson was good enough to help
them claim an 82-46 victory in a game that
was over at halftime.
Every active player on UF's roster played,
and all uttwo scored.
Since the Gators (2-1) gave up 88 points in
a loss at Florida Gulf Coast last week, they
have held their last two opponents to just 51
and 46 points and less than 25 percent shoot-


ing.
"We're very good when we start quickly,"
UF coach Amanda Butler said. "Especially
with our defense, we've got a chance to be a
good team when we do that."
Marshae Dotson nearly had a double-
double and almost scored as many points as
Stetson in the first half.
Dotson had 12 at the break, while the
Hatters had 18.
The senior forward came out after the
game was out of reach early in the second
half and finished with 16 points and nine
rebounds, much to her chagrin.
"I was kind of mad I didn't get (the
double-double)," Dotson said. "I didn't care
about the points, I wanted the 10th rebound,
but Coach kind of gave me a good example
of something could've happened. So I'm like,
'OK, I don't feel as bad.'"
"She can get the 10th rebound in


Tallahassee," Butler added with a laugh.
One indication of the Gators' .improving
defense is they held the Hatters to 17.4 per-
cent shooting in the first half, just three days
after holding Jacksonville to 23.5 percent
shooting, their best field-goal defense since
1995.


Women's
Basketball


Jennifer Mossor helped
UF get going early in the
game. She finished with
10 points and was happy
to see the rest of her team-
mates get the chance to
play.


"It makes us feel real good," Mossor said.
"Especially the starting five going out there
and knowing that we went out there and
did our job, that way we can get everybody
else reps so that they have game experience,
because down the road we're going to need
them."


UF put the game out of reach about mid-
way through the first half after an 11-0 run
that put them up by 19.
After playing Stetson close last year in a
54-50 win, Butler had only one explanation as
to why this year's contest was so different.
"We're a better team this year than last
year," she said. "There's no question about
that."
Stetson coach Lynn Bria agreed.
"I've seen Florida teams in the past, this
team's much improved," Bria said.
Now, UF will look to its trip to Tallahassee
on Sunday to face rival FSU, and Butler
knows nothing about that game will be easy.
"They are very good, and it's going to be a
big challenge for us," she said.
"They've done a fantastic job of coming
out of the gates with their season and estab-
lishing themselves as a top 25 team. It's going
to be a battle."

KICKOFF: Saturday, 1:30 p.m.
TV/RADIO: PPV/WRUF AM850


Here at the alligatorSports Brand
Picks Column, we're suckers for an
inspirational tale, and few around
UF can match Tim Higgins.
During the Gators' 62-0 win
against Western Carolina in 2006, the
5-foot-7, walk-on senior took a hand-
off on the last drive of the game after
students left a note on coach Urban
Meyer's desk, made signs and chant-
ed during the game, all in the hopes
of getting Higgins on the field.
He was stopped for no gain, but
that didn't matter. It was a "Rudy"
moment and the perfect ending to an
emotional Senior Day.
We thought that was the end of
Higgins' career his one shot at
glory but we were tricked.
After the Gators took the 2006 na-
tional title, Higgins enrolled at The
Citadel, where his father, Kevin, was
entering his third year as football
coach. He began work on a master's
degree, but also suited up at wide-
out and finished third on the team
in receiving yards to go with five
touchdowns.
To be fair, Higgins didn't plan
on using his fifth year of eligibility
after graduating from UF, but once
the NCAA changed a rule that al-
lowed him to play at a Division 1-AA
school without sitting out a year, he
pounced on the opportunity.
So, Gators fans, Tim Higgins
duped you.
He even scored a touchdown in
front of 80,000 fans during a 45-31
loss to then-No. 7 Wisconsin last
season.
Higgins is back in Gainesville
now, teaching history and. coach-
ing receivers at Buchholz High, and
this weekend's matchup puts him in
quite a tight spot.
He holds degrees from both
schools, and while he proclaims
he'll always be a Gator and wants
UF to take home another national

Seniors make final Swamp appearance


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator'Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

It's time to say goodbye.
Nineteen seniors will step
into The Swamp for the last time
Saturday when No. 3 UP (9-1, 7-1
Southeastern Conference) hosts
Championship Subdivision oppo-
nent The Citadel (4-7).
At 1 p.m., 30 minutes before
kickoff, the tears will begin to flow
and the names will begin to roll.
Tight end Tate Casey. Safety John
Curtis. Linebacker Jamaal Deveaux.
Defensive tackle Javier Estopinan.
Defensive back Andrew Fritze.
The group finishes its time in
Gainesville with a 40-9 record so
far, one SEC title and one national
title. This year holds the potential
to add another to those last two
categories.
Offensive lineman Brad Heirs.
Tight end Cornelius Ingram. Punter
Bobby Kane.. Running back Kestahn
Moore. Wide receiver Louis Murphy.
"It's one of the best groups of
people I've ever been around,"
coach Urban Meyer said. "Their
record speaks for itself."
Offensive lineman Kyle Newell.
Kicker Jonathan Phillips. Defensive
back Kyle Pratt. Long snapper Butch
Rowley. Long snapper James Smith.
Left guard Jim Tartt.
It's quite likely this game will
get out of hand early. The Gators
come in as the SEC's leader in
scoring offense and defense. The
Bulldogs have lost games to Elon,


MIII


UF quarterback Tim Tebow prepares to take a snap at the South Carolina 1-yard line during the
Gators' 56-6 win against the Gamecocks in The Swamp on Saturday.


Furman, Samford and Wofford.
But Meyer would not get ahead
of himself and talk about getting
backups extended playing time.
He has coached at a school on that
level of play (Bowling Green).
While he wouldn't call this
game a break from the tough
lineup of opponents, he did ac-


knowledge benefits of Saturday's
matchup.
"This is great scheduling,"
he said. "This comes at the right
time."
The usual defensive goals of
allowing no yards and no points
remain intact, albeit a little more
probable this week.


Perhaps the real motivation
might be keeping The Citadel off
the scoreboard. UF has kept five
teams to 7 points or less, but the
Gators have not recorded t'shut-
out since Nov. 18, 2006 against
Western Carolina the last FCS

SEE ADVANCE, PAGE 24


t's not often that losing seniors is seen as
a good thing.
Most college programs consider their
senior leadership the core of the team.
Apparently, the UF soccer team isn't
one of those programs. The Gators lost
eight seniors from the team that reached
the Round of 16 last season. That group
was as decorated as any class to ever play
at UF. But this season, the loss of that lead-
ership has sparked the Gators to a 19-3-1
record, and UF became the first team to go
undefeated in Southeastern Conference
play
"There are some comparisons (between
the last two teams)," midfielder Ashlee


Elliott said. "But I
feel like there were
so many seniors
that they tried to
take it upon them-
Sselves. This year,
Karl Hyppolite we're trying to do
Hy-Lite Reels it together. The
khyppolite@alligator.org seniors (last year)
wanted to take it
on their shoulders.
On this team, everyone wants to take it on
their shoulders."
Before I go any further, allow me to
say that the current team isn't taking
any potshots on departed seniors like


Stacy Bishop, Ashley Harris and KeLeigh
Hudson. It's that there is a different, more
youthful dynamic to the team.
The Gators feature 16 freshmen this
year, which is the most since coach Becky
Burleigh's first season in 1995.
Despite the youth that is sprinkled
throughout the team, this squad didn't
view this as a rebuilding season.
UF soccer lives by the mantra, "We
don't rebuild, we reload."
"This year, our goals were to win the
SEC and go beyond where we did last year
in the Sweet 16," Burleigh said.
So, there's no surprise in the success
that you've had this season?

championship, his dad will be standing on the opposite
sideline. He's so torn between the two teams that he
picked a 37-37 tie, matching the number he wore for the
Gators.
"I'm going to be feeling some stuff on both sides," he
said. "To be honest, my dad is my dad. That's my blood,
and Florida doesn't need any help in this game, so I'm
going to be rooting for my dad to hang in there, get
some first downs and see if they can compete."
The bigger motivational challenge, Higgins said, rests
with the Gators, who he says should view the matchup
as a chance to compete against themselves.
"As much as you tell kids, 'Hey, this team can play,
and they have some guys that can play,' I mean, kids
aren't dumb," he said. "They can see the film, and they
know it's not like South Carolina was last week."
While there will never be another Tim Higgins at
UF, there is one player he'd like to see get a carry on
Saturday reserve long snapper Mike Williamson.

from him.

just switch to guys" Kegler, whose backseat contained a
burned CD simply labeled "Romance." Our guess is it
contains a mix of Broadway, the sound of waves crash-
ing on rocks and Tom Brady reading from "The Vagina
Monologues." We shudder to think of the crimes he has
committed against nature while that disk plays.
In the middle with a 64-36 record is Karl "I haven't
said anything remotely funny this week" Hyppolite,
who decided to replace his tattered Old Navy sweater
with a leather jacket Thursday night. Good thing it was
a blizzard-like 60 degrees outside.
Down in fourth place with a 62-38 mark is Sports
Editor Brian "I'm fairly certain my legs don't move
like that" Steele, whose Facebook page cries out with a.
yearning, "Where have you gone, Harry Potter?"
Growing comfortable in last place with a 59-41 record
is Mike "There may be an East Carolina shirt somewhere
in Gainesville?!" McCall, who drove to two Goodwills
this week in search of a Pirate-related bargain. That's
almost as lame as waking up in the middle of the night
to watch "27 Dresses" in its entirety.

"Well, I don't know about the manner in which we
won the SEC in going undefeated, that was probably
more than we expected," Burleigh said. "But being at
this point (in) the NCAA Tournament, that's where we
were shooting to be."
The other nugget is that Burleigh hasn't had to be as
hands-on with this team as one would expect.
"Much less than I expected to be, I thought I'd have
to be more," Burleigh said. "I think that's a direct tribute
to the older players taking charge in leadership."
Unlike their younger counterparts, the older players
have memories they may be burdened with. The Gators
have lost in the Round of 16 in each of the past two sea-
sons, and that isn't lost on them.
"We don't want to be the team that loses in the Sweet
16 every year," defender Lauren Hyde said.
The Gators have an advantage their predecessors
didn't. They'll be playing at home this time, rather than
traveling to Los Angeles like they have before.
I "The trips to California did take their toll on our
bodies," Elliott said. "Now ... we're going to have an
edge against Texas A&M."
The type of edge those seniors before them didn't
have. And they got there together.

Final.


Senior DT Estopinan overcomes


three ACL tears in UF career


By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Staff Writer
khyp'polite@alligator.org

The term "blood, sweat and tears" is cli-
che and often overused.
But for UF defensive lineman Javier
Estopinan, it's much more.
It's the completion of goals. It's. taking
what you've been given and making some-
thing better.
It's his life story.
The blood comes in the form of three
season-ending ACL surgeries in five years
as a Gator.
"We supported him the whole time," said
Lazaro Estopinan, Javier's father. "We see
him pushing every day and working hard.
Twenty-four hours after his third surgery,
he committed to coach Urban Meyer that he
would play next season. That's something,
to see how much he loves football and loves
the Gators."
The sweat is from each of those painful
rehabs during the sweltering months of
spring and summer when he could have
given up football.
"It's in his makeup," said Joe Mira,
who coached Javier at South MiamirHfigfi
"There's no quit in him. I was concerned
for him going through those injuries, but I
was never surprised that he tried to come
back. He's just a tough guy. You won't find
a .tougher guy."
But it was his heart that wouldn't let him
quit, that didn't let him actually shed any
tears.
Because, like another overused cliche
says, everything happens for a reason.
"Obviously, no one wants to get hurt,"
Javier said.
"But I wouldn't change anything from
what's happened to me and what I've
learned from fighting through these inju-
ries."

Fighter
Fighting is something Javier knows a bit
about.
He clawed his way back to game shape
after his ACL surgeries.
He recorded a 45-0 record and a Class
3A championship his junior year at South
Miami High as a wrestler. Javier was mak-
ing his first comeback after a torn meniscus
kept him from earning that title a year
prior.
Maybe it's his success as a wrestler that
has made it easier for him to twist, flip and
grapple his way back into game shape after
'his injuries.

"I'came to the University of Florida be-

"I knew that they were going to get a really

Once coach Urban Meyer entered the
fray, Javier noticed the differences imme-
diately.

"A lot of us didn't play hard before," he
said.

in high school. When (Meyer) came in, I re-

sons.
Estopinan avoided getting nostalgic
about his last time marching out of the
south end zone. In fact, he hasn't thought
about it much.
"I don't know what it's going to feel
like," he said.
"It may be like the first time I ran out
there."
Lazaro, on the other hand, expects the
emotions to well up again. He watched
Javier sprint onto the gridiron for the first
time in 2004, he's seen him contribute to a
championship team, he's seen him work
back from injuries and he's seen him gradu-
ate.
But that moment on Saturday may top
all of them.
"It's going to be something emotional,"
Lazaro said.
"We see how he's changed over five
years. He's working on his master's degree,
and he's become a man. It's going to be
emotional. Five years flies so fast."
They say that time flies when you're hav-
ing fun.
But for Javier, it was more than just fun
- it was work, and it was life.
He'll have his master's degree in build-
ing construction next December.
But before he gets there, he has to get
through this December, earn another SEC
championship and then head back home
in January, where he could win his second
national title.
After that, he'll hang up his jersey and
pads for good, with none of his blood, sweat
or tears wasted.
"He's as high-character, tough guy as
I've ever been around," Meyer said. "He's
got his whole life worked out. That's why
he came back."
That's why he kept coming back.
