Officer cleared


n shooting of local teen


SA JURY RULED IT WAS A
JUSTIFIABLE HOMICIDE.

The killing of a Gainesville man
by an Alachua County Sheriff's
deputy was ruled justifiable by a
grand jury Tuesday.
Nicholous Vertex Weeks, 18,
was shot several times by ASO Lt.
Mike Hanson May 15 after force


and the use of a Taser gun did not
stop Weeks from attacking the dep-
uty.
Hanson returned back to work
on May 27, after he was cleared
by the ASO Office of Professional
Standards, said ASO spokesman
Art Forgey.
Forgey said Gainesville Police
Department was hired to conduct


the criminal aspect of the investi-
gation, but its findings are not yet
complete.
"Were glad it's over
Local with," Forgey said.
New! "There is no real win-
ner. Now we have to
pick up the pieces and move on."
At around 12:50 p.m. the day of
the shooting, GPD received calls


about a man and woman fighting
in a car at the intersection of North-
west 34th Street and 39th Avenue.
Before GPD officers arrived at
the scene, Hanson pulled up and
tried to stop the fight.
After being Tasered, Weeks at-
tempted to grab the deputy's gun.
Hanson then shot Weeks several
times, killing him on the scene,


GPD spokesman Lt. Keith Kameg
said. From about 9:30 a.m. to about
3 p.m., the jury listened to personal
accounts of Hanson and the testi-
monies of multiple witnesses, said
State Attorney Bill Cervone.
Cervone said the grand jury
concluded that Weeks' death was a
justifiable homicide.

Reitz Union


poolroom


ranks No. 1
By ABBIE PARKER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Two local pool experts ranked the Reitz
Union poolroom the No. 1 pool hall in Ala-
chua County.
Matt "Quick Draw" Sherman and Donny
Lutz evaluated 12 billiards halls in Alachua
County, criteria from a list in Robert Byme's
Billiard's Digest article "My Dream Room."
Sherman is the author of two books, "Pic-
ture Yourself Shooting Pool" and "Step-by-
Step Instruction for Successful Pocket Bil-
liards," and teaches a pool leisure course at
UF.
Sherman, along with certified pool instruc-
tor and former UF pool league coach Donny
Lutz, writes a monthly column called the "8-
Ball Debates" for Inside Pool Magazine.
The article listed 23 specific criteria for a
good poolroom, such as places for pool play-
ers to sit comfortably, spots from which some-

SG bill opposes Machen's proposed Fla-Ga liquor ban


By JESSICA CHAPMAN
Alligator Writer

The UF Student Senate passed a
bill Tuesday opposing the resolu-
tion proposed by President Bernie
Machen to implement changes that
will affect liquor licensing during
the annual UF-Georgia game in


Jacksonville.
"Most people don't want Bernie
Machen telling them what to do,"
Sen. Alan Yanuck said.
Acting Progressive Party Presi-
dent Nick Mildebrath told the Sen-
ate he has been petitioning for the
bill at The Pita Pit.
Other senators have petitioned,


as well.
"Student Government has not
done a strong
Student job advocating
Government for students,"
Sen. Jonathan
Ossip said. "I'm
glad this year we were able to take
a stance."


The Senate will send a copy of
the bill to Machen, Vice President
of Student Affairs Patricia Telles-
Irvin and the University of Geor-
gia Student Government Associa-
tion president.
Much debate at the meeting
surrounded a bill that proposed
changes to online availability of SG


records, such as cabinet members'
applications and resumes, which
can currently only be accessed by
SG officials.
The bill, a reworking of a past
bill that would have given access
to all students, would adjust online

Fort Myers Beach town council fires manager married to porn star


MIAMI (AP) A South Florida town
manager who married a porn star last year
was fired at an emergency meeting after the
mayor and council members found out.
Fort Myers Beach town council voted 5-0
to fire Scott Janke "without cause" after May-
or Larry Kiker called the Tuesday meeting.
Kiker said he learned that afternoon that
Janke's wife is an adult film star, and the
elected officials took action hours later.
"At no time did we make a judgment call


on the activities of Mr. Janke or his wife,"
Kiker told The Associated Press.
Adult Industry News recently reported
that Janke's wife, Anabela Mota Janke, goes
by the stage name Jazella Moore. Kiker said
a clause in Janke's contract permitted the
council to fire him with a majority vote. He
said he considers the Jankes friends.
"Our heads are held high," Scott Janke
said. "We have nothing to be embarrassed
about. We've done nothing wrong."

STATE
Minimum wage increases
to $7.25 per hour
Floridian minimum wage work-
ers can expect a few extra pennies
in their pockets starting Friday.
The state's minimum wage will
rise by four cents, from $7.21 to
$7.25, in the second increase of the
year.
Traditionally, Florida's mini-
mum wage has been above the
federal requirement.
The state wage was raised be-
fore from $6.79 to $7.21 on Jan. 1.
Friday's increase will keep the
state minimum wage in line with
the federal wage, as Washington
finishes a series of small wage in-
creases.
Some economists believe an
increase in minimum wage will
negatively affect business.
"Given the cuts in funding
across the campus and the decline
in business in general, the odds are
that employers will be forced to re-
duce the number of student hires,
unless they are using a student to
replace a full-timer who has been
released," said Wayne Wallace, a
director of UF's Career Resource
Center.
Despite economists' claims of a
negative pattern, some argue that
a four-cent increase will have little
effect.
"I don't think it's going to af-
fect [employment] that much. It's
not that big of a deal," said Rich-
ard Stritkland, manager of the local
Backyard Burger.
He added that his company in-
tends to keep its work force at 25
employees.
Similarly, many student work-
ers do not believe they will be af-
fected by the wage increase.
"I get paid mostly from tip share
so, while the increase in minimum
wage is a great thing, it won't di-
rectly affect me as it will to those
whose pay is strictly minimum
wage," said Melanie Lyon, a UF
sophomore.
It is debatable that the progres-
sive raise of the minimum wage
squeezed the job market.

"We've been servicing more
participants this year than last
year," said Josh Wadsworth, an
employee at Job Junction, a non-
profit employment office funded
by Goodwill of North Florida.
He added that he was un-
sure if this was due to the wage
increases or the economy in gen-
eral.
College graduates should re-
main unaffected, as they general-
ly are not looking for minimum
wage jobs, according to Wallace.

Candidates named in


search for police chief


By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Staff Writer
kemmets@alligator.org

A list of finalists to replace Gainesville
Police Chief Norman Botsford was re-
leased Monday.
The memo, written by Gainesville
City Manager Russ Blackburn, was ad-
dressed to the City Commission.
The finalists include: Joseph Curreri,
a Los Angeles Police Department cap-
tain; Craig Goralski, a Houston Police
Department captain; Richard Hanna, a
Gainesville Police Department major;
Richard Lemack, former assistant city
manager for the city of Hollywood, Fla.,
and previous assistant chief of police for
the Hollywood Police Department; and
Antonio Williams, chief of police for
the University of Maryland, Baltimore
County.
In the memo to the commission,
Blackburn explains that after receiving
93 applications, the pool was narrowed
down to 20 semi-finalists who met re-
quirements including having eight years
of senior-level command experience.
After discussing credentials and
resumes in telephone interviews with
each semi-finalist, the selection was nar-
rowed down to five.


On Aug. 11 and 12, the finalists will
be invited to attend a formal interview.
According to the memo, the inter-
view will include a panel interview led
by Blackburn, one-on-one interviews
with Blackburn and a community recep-
tion to allow Gainesville residents to get
to know each of the finalists.
Blackburn said that he encourages
residents to make suggestions of who
they think would be the best candidate
for the position.

Panel OKs water-pong


tournament for charity


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@a Iligator.org

After initially saying no, UF is giving wa-
ter pong a second shot.
On Wednesday, the Center for Student
Activities and Involvement approved student
group A Spring of Hope's plan to host a chari-
ty water-pong tournament on the Reitz Union
north lawn after initially denying its request
for a permit because it resembles beer pong
and because water-drinking contests can be
dangerous or deadly.
"There have been students who have be-
come ill or even died from consuming a large
amount of water," said Beth Waltrip, UF's di-
rector of campus programs.
The policy also extends to eating competi-
tions, she said, with several permits for wing-
or hot dog-eating contests denied over the
years.
UF officials also frown upon activities that
promote heavy drinking, she said.
"The university [makes] a very specific ef-
fort to try to discourage binge and underage
drinking among students," she said.
In the fall UF passed changes to the Student
Conduct Code that ban drinking games, kegs
and activities encouraging the "rapid, exces-
sive consumption of alcohol" on campus.
UF President Bernie Machen has also made
his opposition to binge drinking clear and has
recently tried to get the city of Jacksonville to
limit alcohol sales during festivities at the an-
nual UF-Georgia game.
But Nancy Chrystal-Green, director of the


student center, said the issue was more about
the dangers of a water-drinking contest.
"There's really no regulation that says that
we can ban events that resemble [beer pong],"
she said. "That wasn't the concern."
Jonathan Ossip, president of the group
hosting the tournament, said the group has al-
ways maintained that students don't actually
need to drink the water in order to compete.
The group held a water-pong tournament last
year with the same rules, he said.
"There's really no regulation that
says that we can ban events that
resemble [beer pong]."
Nancy Chrystal-Green
director of the center

Chrystal-Green, however, said that wasn't
made clear on the group's permit this year.
Ossip said he's glad UF finally allowed the
event, which will raise money to build wells
for schools in rural Africa. Last year, the event
raised between $200 and $300, but Ossip said
he expects to raise more this year because he
has recruited sponsors like Domino's Pizza
and Gainesville Health & Fitness Center Inc.
The wells cost between $2,000 and $10,000
to build, he said.
Ossip said the tournament is popular with
students, who pay to compete, resulting in
more money raised through entry fees, dona-
tions and the sale of T-shirts and bracelets.
Ossip said the group met with UF officials
five times before the initial denial was over-
turned.

Pub one of few to serve rare brew
By ROBERTA 0. ROBERTS
Alligator Writer

A bewitching new brew has shown
up on University Avenue.
Mother's Pub & Grill, 1017 W.
University Ave., is the only bar in
Gainesville, and one of four in the
state, that has been selected by Ver-
mont-based Magic Hat Brewing Co.
to serve its newest concoction Mag-
ic Hat No. 9, a "not quite pale ale," ac-
cording to TJ Goodman, co-owner of
the pub.
Mother's will host a party Friday
night to formally introduce Magic
Hat No. 9.
Burgers and chicken wings cooked
using the beer will also be available,
Goodman said.
Other towns in Florida hosting the
specially brewed beer include Talla-
hassee, Ocala and the Tampa/St. Pe-
tersburg area.
Goodman said
Around the ale is unique
Gainesville and indescribable.
"It's like Sierra
Nevada," he said, "but it has a flow-
ery, fruity taste afterwards. It really is
hard to explain."
But despite its hard-to-determine
flavor, Goodman said it has been suc-
cessful with customers in its first week
after becoming available in the bar.
"We had one keg about 110 pints
- gone within three hours, which is
unbelievable," he said.
He also said the new specialty beer
is going to change a lot of things.
"A lot of college students will go
from buying $1 drinks and jump to
buying $3 and $4 drinks, which is
unheard of in today's economy," he
said.

UF ACADEMICS

Levin drops


enrollment
By SHAY BRODERICK
Alligator Writer
On June 8, KC Hagan took the Law School
Admission Test in hopes of being accepted to the
Levin College of Law.
But though more students will apply for a posi-
tion in the college than last year, Hagan will com-
pete for one of 100 fewer spots than in 2008.
According to The Princeton Review Web site,
only 36 percent of all LSAT test-takers are admit-
ted to law school each year. UF's law school only
accepted less than 9 percent of its applicants for
the fall class of 2009
Noemar Castro, director of admissions for the
Levin College of Law, said that
for the fall 2008 class, the college
received 3,369 applications and
admitted 400 students.
This year, the college re-
ceived 3,430 applications but
will reduce the number of stu-
dents they enroll by 25 percent,
castro enrolling only 300 applicants
for the fall 2009 semester.
Castro said the law school decreased its admis-
sions in an effort to implement a quality-not-quan-
tity approach for the future.
"It's extremely competitive," she said. "We
have definitely seen an increase in applicants for
this year."
Castro said people are interested in attending
law school because a law degree provides options
and also prepares students for the workforce.
She predicts an even higher number of applica-
tions for fall 2010, she said, because students who
finish undergraduate programs will have a tough
time finding jobs and look to law school as an op-
tion.
Hagan, a 21-year-old advertising senior, took
LSAT prep classes in April.
"You have to be competitive," she said.

STUDENT LIFE

Students no longer refunded for found library books


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.ora


If you've got any lost library books, now's
the time to find them.
After a new policy goes into effect Aug.
17, students may have less time after the
due date to return a book before UF charges
them for the cost of a replacement.
Currently, lost books are replaced when
librarians get around to buying the new


books, said library spokeswoman Barbara
Hood.
So some lost books aren't back on the
shelf in a timely manner, which prompted
the change, Hood said.
Under the new policy, the library will in-
stitute a fixed schedule for book replacement,
and as soon as the new book is ordered, the
one who checked out the book will be re-
sponsible for paying for it, she said.
The new policy states that 21 days after
the due date, the library will charge borrow-


ers a $35 processing charge per item for gen-
eral loans. The next day,
the replacement item will
be ordered, and the bor-
rower will be responsible
for the cost of the new
item, in addition to the $35
fee.
The other late fees will
Hood remain largely the same.
For general loans, it will still cost 25 cents per
day after the due date until the maximum


overdue fine kicks in after 20 days. That fine,
however, will now be $5 instead of $10.
From July 1, 2008 to May 13, the library
reported 728 lost books at the Smathers Li-
braries, which at the time didn't include the
Health Science Center libraries or the law
school's library.
Those books had a combined cost of
about $50,000, Hood said.
During the last school year, UF students,
faculty and staff checked out almost 220,000
books, she said.

Editorial
T hings are not looking good at the Department of Darts
& Laurels right now. The weekend hasn't even started
yet (and it won't until this white space has been filled),
and a deadly mixture of beer and Mario Kart Wii (we call it
Beerio Kart) has already destroyed our apartments, bodies and
minds.
But, alas! The show must go on. So, feel free to crack open
a cold one, start living the High Life and read this week's let's-
hope-we-can-get-through-this-editorial-before-we-throw-
up-an-entire-Mario-Bacardi-party edition of Darts & Laurels,
courtesy of Advil, of course. Also, please excuse the product
placement overkill. We aren't on the payroll for Nintendo,
Miller Brewing Co., Bacardi Limited or Advil. We swear...



Darts & Laurels

The 11 million monthly subscribers of World of Warcraft
will actually have a reason to leave their apartments/bunkers/
caves of seclusion for something other than Bawls, Hot Pocket
re-ups and foam sword-fighting equipment as soon as 2012.
Sam Raimi (of "Spider-Man" fame) has announced that he will
be directing a feature film all about the horde. We were into
RuneScape back in middle school (one of us even required
an intervention), but we would like to throw a DART at Sam
Raimi for making a movie about a game that has sent many
past acquaintances into a veritable abyss (presumably with
Jonathan Taylor Thomas, Ruben Studdard and Carmen de la
Pica Morales). Raimi proved that he's a master of cheese with
"Drag Me to Hell," but we think he's actually serious with this
one. In a word: Wow.
Speaking of tools, a burglar seems to have found the perfect
instrument to do his dirty work. Guys, it's a monkey. Security
tapes show what appears to be a monkey stealing hundred
of dollars worth of merchandise from Plants and Planters, a
store in Richardson, Texas. We would like to send a LAUREL
to as-of-yet-unapprehended burglar for channeling "Murders
in the Rue Morgue" (sans the part in which a dismembered
corpse is shoved up a chimney) and pinning his crimes on a
blameless animal. Anything that gives us a chance to reference
the great Auguste Dupin deserves a laurel; plus, dudes, it's a
monkey. (You guys like animals, right?)
After initially denying a student group's request to play
water pong for an African charity, the Center for Student Ac-
tivities and Involvement has now decided the event is OK.
According to a UF official, the concern about the event came
from the fact that it resembles a certain drinking game (rhymes
with "Donkey Kong") and that drinking water in excess can
result in injury or death. The Department of Darts & Laurels
would like to throw a DART into the cups of those who work
for center, firstly for not being able to make up their minds and
secondly for not realizing that people only die in water drink-
ing contests when a Nintendo Wii is involved. (Seriously guys,
we don't work for them).
Reluctance would be understandable if the student group
wanted to pull a reverse "Mad Max" and drink gasoline be-
cause apparently that makes your IQ drop. A 14-year-old boy
from Yibin City, China, who has been reportedly drinking
gasoline for the past five years in order to resemble his idol,
Optimus Prime. We wanna throw the kid a LAUREL for fol-

ing to the kid's mom, he has damaged his brain to the point
that he can no long perform simple addiction, I mean addition,

this situation, given that he probably can't read. In fact, we feel
this way about a lot of the Darts and Laurels this week. What
have we really written about? People that can't stop looking at
gnomes and mages long enough to read a newspaper, a mon-
key and a kid who can't add seven and 17. Oh boy.
Well, we realize that we only did four this week, but, as
we've said, we are nursing some killer hangovers. As our part-

And also, have a good weekend. No drinking and driving (un-
less the driving is virtual).

Guest column

Sales tax unfairly b
ne hundred years ago on July 17,1909, Sen. William
E. Borah (R-Idaho) wrote, "The income tax is the fair-
est and most equitable of the taxes. It is the one tax
which approaches us in the hour of prosperity and departs
in the hour of adversity. Certainly, it will be conceded by all
that the great expense of government is in the protection of
property and wealth. There is no possible argument founded
in law or in morals why these protected interests should not
bear their proportionate burden of government."
Within two years of Sen. Borah's pronouncement, Wis-
consin enacted the first state income tax. Several other states
followed suit as a wave of Progressive Era reforms led many
states to replace their ailing property taxes with more pro-
gressive and effective income taxes.
By contrast, the first functional sales tax was enacted in
Mississippi during the dark days of its segregationist history
in 1932, in part as an effort to shift taxes off of the wealthy
and politically powerful landowners, and onto the backs of
blacks and poor whites. Several states followed, and while
their reasoning may have been less offensive, it's clear that
legislators have known since the beginning exactly who is
most impacted by a sales tax. As states across the U.S. grap-
ple with budget cuts this year, choices are again being made
that will affect families everywhere. States including New
Jersey, New York and Oregon are taking the more progres-
sive path and opting for the addition of new tax rates at the
top of their income tax structures. Over the coming months
and into early 2010, states will continue to debate these two
paths as they struggle to meet their respective shortfalls.
The choice should be clear.
Unlike the income tax, so eloquently described by
Sen. Borah, the sales tax falls like a hammer on families
during their hour of greatest adversity. That's because it's
based on how much we spend, not how much we earn.
There are many situations where one can spend more than
they earn for months or even years: someone who takes an
extended time off work to take care of a sick parent; college
students relying on loans; a family struggling for months af-

urdens Americans
Brian Miller ter a plant closing; an entrepreneur in
American Forum the first critical years of a new business
venture; and a family that chooses to
live on just one income during its new
child's formative years. In all these family realities, as spend-
ing outpaces income, the sales tax has its greatest adverse
impact. In more streetwise language, the sales tax gleefully
kicks you when you're down.
Meanwhile, there are those at the top of the income
scale whose millions are scarcely touched by the sales tax.
Much of their income is used to acquire more wealth with
the purchase of stocks, bonds and real estate investments.
Unlike the "purchases" most of us make every day, these
are tax free, allowing wealth to snowball. Even their attor-
ney fees and landscaping services are generally free of the
sales tax. According to a report by the Institute on Taxation
and Economic Policy, "The average state's consumption tax
structure (sales and excise) is equivalent to an income tax
with a 7 percent rate for the poor, a 4.8 percent rate for the
middle class, and a 1 percent rate for the wealthiest taxpay-
ers. Obviously, no one would intentionally design an income
tax that looks like this yet by relying on consumption tax-
es as a revenue source, this is effectively the policy choice
lawmakers nationwide have made."
And so, under a sales tax, income at the top that more
often finds its way into speculation or idle savings remains
virtually untouched, while the income of the far-less-
wealthy, which moves swiftly and consistently back into
our local, state and national economies at a time when we
need it most, is taxed at the highest possible level.
If our elected officials are serious about strengthening the
middle class and fostering a more broadly shared prosper-
ity, let them take a moment to consider the wisdom of our
forebears. Great truths, like the words of Sen. Borah, stand
the test of time and can help us make wise and just decisions
when facing the challenges of today.

Amazon should allow buyers to own books
What concerns me is not the technology itself, but
this growing concept that individuals don't own the
data on their own storage devices.
They could have easily designed the Kindle to let
you purchase and download the e-books, and after that
immediately stop keeping track of the book because it's
no longer their damn business.
They did not, and I'm glad to see Amazon.com get-
ting bitten in the ass for it. I like Amazon.com, and I
hope they learn from this.

Congress should take time to pass bills
The author's comparison breaks down for the fol-
lowing reason: There was plenty of debate as to wheth-
er landing a man on the moon was worth the expense.
But there was no debate on how to do it. That was left
to the engineers who understood the problem.
With today's issues, most everyone agrees on the
sort of thing that should be done (with the likely excep-
tion of climate change), but there are strong disagree-
ments about how to do things. Having Congress (most
of whom have little to no practical experience in health
care, climate science, finances, etc.) rush through mas-
sive spending bills may not be the best thing. Many
would argue that this path is sure to cause more harm
than good.

Student featured


in Quiznos contest

By JESSICA CHAPMAN
Alligator Writer

"Where do you torpedo?"
Answering that question just might win UF engineering
junior Blake Matson $10,000, a year of free Quiznos torpedo
subs and a chance for his video to be televised nationally.
Matson is one of 10 finalists in the Quiznos "Where Do
You Torpedo?" video contest, which was designed to raise
publicity for Quiznos' new $4 Toasty Torpedo sub.
His video, "The sandwich you can't let go," features Mat-
son as pink-shirted, pink sunglass-clad "Bryce."
In the video, Bryce drives a convertible with sub in hand
while telling the passenger he torpedoes "in his
Student sports car doing 120, with the windows down
Life and the top rolled back," just before the Quiz-
nos Toasty Torpedo sub shoots off into space,
rocket-style before landing in his hand.
In order to win, Matson's video must receive the most
online votes before the July 31 deadline.
Voters are automatically entered into a contest to win free
torpedo subs for a year, according to the contest Web site.
He said he entered the contest to make a video, and the
competition was an added incentive.
"We wanted to make a video and maybe get recognition
for it," he said.
He said he wanted to begin his video "kind of lame" and
finish with something big to throw judges off.
Matson, who shot the video with Florida State University
student Johnathan Greenaway, said if he wins he will take
his friends on a vacation and possibly buy a hybrid car.
But Matson, who is the only one visible in the video,
doesn't plan to hog all the winnings.
"Johnathan plans to buy a motorcycle," he said.

UF ACADEMICS

Telescope debuts in Canary Islands


* UF ONLY U.S. ENTITY TO PARTICIPATE.

By STEPHANIE LEVENTHAL
Alligator Contributing Writer

Looking through the world's largest telescope is
like seeing something with four million eyes.
The telescope, which was built out of a joint
effort by UF astronomers and astronomers from
Spain and Mexico, will be inaugurated Friday by
King Juan Carlos I and Queen Sofia of Spain at the
Observatorio del Roque de los Muchachos in La
Palma, Canary Islands.
The telescope, named Gran Telescopio Canarias,
has the latest technology and instrumentation, in-
cluding more light-collecting area than any other
in the world, said UF astronomy professor Charles
Telesco.
Large telescopes usually have one mirror that is
distorted by gravity when tilted, he said, but GTC's
mirror is a mosaic of 36 hexagonal segments that
can be readjusted to prevent deformation.
The telescope also features a $3.3 million, heat-
sensing camera called CanariCam, which was de-
signed and built by UF engineers and scientists, he
said.
On the island, air sweeps smoothly across the
Atlantic Ocean, and there are no topographical fea-
tures to cause turbulence, Telesco said.
The telescope, which rests on building only 20
feet shorter than the Statue of Liberty and whose
base can hold the weight of 62 elephants, is located
atop a 7,874-foot mountain, with clear, dry weather
that allows for high-precision images.
UF and Mexico each own 5 percent of the GTC,
and Spain owns 90 percent, said Stan Dermott,
chairman of UF's astronomy department.
The university contributed about $5 million to
the $180 million project.
The project is part of the campaign to interna-
tionalize the university, according to Dermot.
Although this ownership commits the university
to 5 percent of all expenses, it also entitles the as-


tronomy department to about 20 days of observa-
tion each year, Telesco said.
The privilege of guaranteed access was the main
reason for joining the project, he said.
"It was natural for us to get involved in this
Spanish telescope because of the Hispanic connec-
tion we have here in Florida," Telesco said.
Eric Ford, assistant professor in the department
of astronomy, was one of the first to make observa-
tions with the GTC.
From Gainesville, he instructed experts at the
site to perform operations and send the images to
him over the Internet.
The uncertainty of using a new telescope made
the experience suspenseful and exciting, he said.

"It's really nerve-wracking, you're check-
ing every little detail every five minutes,
and you know you'll either make it or
break it."
Eric Ford
Assistant Professor, Department of Astronomy


"It's really nerve-wracking," Ford said. "You're
checking every little detail every five minutes, and
you know you'll either make it or break it."
But the observation turned out a success, he said.
A Jupiter-sized planet following a nearly circular
orbit around a star was observed.
According to Ford, the telescope will primarily
be used to learn about the formation and evolution
of planets and to gain an understanding of how the
solar system fits into the universe.
He also mentioned studying young stars, the
center of galaxies, black holes and star-forming re-
gions surrounded by dust.
The key hope is to find something that is un-
known to mankind, Dermott said.
"This university has a desire to be a top 10 state
university," he said. "For that desire to be met, it
is essential that we involve ourselves in top-notch
projects like this one."

Monday's band practice was a
downer for Tony Farah.
The bass player couldn't believe
it might be Chupaskabra's last time
playing in the living room they use
to rehearse for shows, he said.
The local ska band will perform
a free concert alongside The Dup-
pies at Bo Diddley Community
Plaza Friday. The concert will be
the group's last for a while, band
members said.
"We just need a break from it,
I guess," trumpet player Blaine
Garvin said. "We've been playing
the same stuff for two and a half
years."
However, the seven-piece
band's decision isn't unani-
mous. Some of the members feel
they could easily continue Chu-
paskabra, Farah said.
When Chupaskabra churned
out its happy-go-lucky, horn-
backed rendition of pop-punk at
Free Fridays last year, the group at-


tracted an audience of about 400.
David Ballard, the plaza events
coordinator, said attendance at Free
Fridays has gone up significantly
this year, continuing a trend.

"We just need a break from
it, I guess. We've been
playing the same stuff for
two and a half years."

Both Ballard and the band agree
it's the family friendly atmosphere
that attracts the large, diverse
crowd, encouraged by an alcohol-
free environment.
"It's cool because you see peo-
ple there that you would never
normally see at shows," tenor sax-
ophone player Neil Soule said.

Study: Flip-flops create foot and back problems


Doctors recommend replacing flip-flops when possible


By MARY HILLYER PEELEN
Alligator Contributing Writer

It may seem stilettos are the
most serious foot-pain offender,
but it's summer's favorite shoe
that's now getting the blame.
The American College of
Sports Medicine determined
wearing flip-flops is harmful to
feet, legs and lower back when
worn as primary footwear.
Floridians may be harder hit
than most, with all-year sunshine
allowing flip-flop wear year
round.
"Flip-flops give no support for
the arch, so there is some flatten-
ing in the feet overtime," said Dr.
Scott Koppel, a podiatrist from
North Florida Family Podiatry in
Gainesville.
Flip-flops increase the chances
for ankle sprains, and Koppel
recommends when purchasing
sandals to avoid funky or really
thick soles, which can be hazard-
ous, he said.
"The best choice is to wear an
athletic shoe when you can," Ko-
ppel said.
He advises his patients to
wear either New Balance or Asics
brands because of their support-
ive soles.
Most flip-flops lack supportive
soles and make people change
the manner in which they walk


or run.
When wearing them for too
long, they can cause pain, ac-
cording to the American College
of Sports Medicine.
The average American takes
between 10,000 and 20,000 steps


day, and small changes to a per-
son's gait can escalate to a serious
injury.
Although summer's go-to
shoe may cause pain, Cayce Con-
nolly, a UF junior, says she won't
stop wearing her favorite type of


footwear.
"Flip-flops are so comfort-
able and they make my feet look
good," Connolly said, while
sporting a pair of Rainbow flip-
flops during an interview.
"I always see people on cam-


pus wearing flip-flops, probably
because it is so hot and they just
want some breezy feet," she said.
The American College of
Sports Medicine recommends re-
placing flip-flops as often as pos-
sible and not wearing them for
an extended period of time or for
long distances.

Union calls for High Springs police chief to resign


By PATRICK ANNESTY
Alligator Writer

High Springs Police Chief James Troiano
will not resign, despite union demands, he
said Wednesday.
A union representing the police officers
of High Springs called for the resignation of
Troiano in a letter addressed to the mayor
Monday.
The Florida Police Benevolent Association
Inc. cited a survey that found morale at the
police department "very low." Respondents
blamed this on the chief, calling him "belliger-
ent and unfair."
The survey also found that "rules and reg-


ulations are not applied equally to all employ-
ees" and "favoritism is shown by the agency,"
according to the letter.
"I am not going to resign. I am not being
fired. I am absolutely committed to the best
level of leadership for this department," Troia-
no said.
Of the 12 surveys sent out, nine were re-
turned. Each said if they could change one
thing at the agency, it would be "to get rid
of the police chief," according to the survey
results released by Reddish & White, CPAs,
which conducted the survey for the union.
In a press release Tuesday, City Manager
James Drumm defended Troiano, saying he
"has not done anything warranting his res-


ignation, and [I] have no intention of asking
[him] to resign on the demand of staff mem-
bers."
He added that "the appointment of the po-
lice chief is not a popularity
contest."
Troiano is concerned
about the survey's timing,
he said. The city is cur-
rently in negotiations for
a three-year labor renewal
agreement with the union.
Trolano "We stand committed to
continue this negotiation in
good faith," Drumm said in the release.
Troiano doubted the survey's methods.


The union sent out 12 surveys, but only 10 offi-
cers in the department were eligible to receive
them, Troiano said. One was received by an
officer who is not a union member.
The letter accused the chief of unfair disci-
plinary practices, but Troiano said he has for-
mally disciplined only one officer in his tenure.
That officer divulged confidential information
to someone outside the police force. Out of the
maximum penalty of 160 hours suspension,
Troiano removed the officer for one day.
"I can't see how [that] would be 'unfair and
not in line or scope with what should be ex-
pected,' as the union claims," he said.
He added that "the true feelings of many in
the police department were not heard."


Summer swing dance to benefit leukemia society


* DANCE HELD IN MEMORY

A Santa Fe College professor
hopes to raise money for the Leuke-
mia & Lymphoma Society this Sat-
urday in memory of his father.
The Larry G. Shahboz Memorial
Summer Swing Dance will be held
at the Thelma Boltin Center from 8
p.m. to 11 p.m.
"The dance is going to be a lot of

fun, and it's for a great cause," said
Marc Shahboz, SFC digital media
professor and host of the event.
He and his wife, Joyce, have been
swing dancing for about four years
and are members of UF's Florida
Swing Dancing Club.
Shahboz said his aunt and his
father inspired him to begin swing
dancing.
His father, Larry, was an avid
swing dancer who died in 2005 from
Multiple Myeloma, a type of leuke-
mia, and his aunt, Judy Martin, was
his father's dance partner and a sur-
vivor of Leukemia.


At the Boltin Center, 516 NE Sec-
ond Ave., there will be dancing les-
sons and demonstrations for those
who want to learn, which will start
at 8:30 p.m.
"You don't have to know how
to dance in order to
Santa Fe come," Shahboz said.
Collg|q "The whole point is
to get the commu-
nity together, have a
great time and help out a wonderful
cause."
Essie Jennings, a second-year
animal sciences major at UF and
president of the swing club, said


many of the club's members will at-
tend and added that the dance "will
be a blast."
Jennings said the swing club
has always wanted to participate in
charitable events but has never had
the funds to do so.
This is the first year that Shah-
boz is hosting the event and plans to
hold more in the future.
He said he thinks this will be the
perfect way to commemorate his fa-
ther.
"My dad was a very charismatic
guy," he said. "He would have loved
this event and would have been the


first one on the dance floor."
The Shahboz family is covering
all costs including renting the center
and paying for the refreshments. All
of the money that is raised will go
directly to the Leukemia & Lympho-
ma Society's North Florida Chapter.
Local restaurants like Bento Cafe
and Stonewood Grill and Tavern
have also donated gift certificates
to raffle off and raise money for the
cause.
Tickets cost $10 for general ad-
mission and $7 for students and can

"The players are all non-pro,
but even though all the players are
in college, it doesn't mean they are
young with only a couple of years
of experience," Sherman said. "You
could be playing against a 40-year-
old man that is in law school, who
has played for over 20 years. The
competition is very fierce."
Gainesville poolrooms Art of
Billiards and J P Gators ranked No.
2 and 3 respectively on the list.
Art of Billiards owner Dana
Rogers said her poolroom offers
things that the Reitz can't-alcohol
and smoking.
Her billiards hall hosts about 25


upper-level tournaments a year,
including a monthly 9-ball tour-
nament and professional tourna-
ments.
Rogers said the hall also pro-
vides a good environment for fam-
ilies during the day.
"I think it's a blast to have fami-
lies come in with their children to
play," she said. "We have a lot of
fun."
Art of Billiards also hosts six
shooters who have played in pro-
fessional tournaments in Las Ve-
gas.
J P Gators wasn't available for
comment.

Colourslide prepares to go major with new album in fall


MEAGAN MCGONE + AVENUE WRITER


Ask any band to classify its
music, and its members are likely
to give a thoughtfully drawn-out
list of categories. A band's sound
never fits into one simple genre.
Colourslide is no exception.
"It's more of a melodic rock,"
guitarist Dean Newman said.
Alex Lawhon, the band's
lead singer, jokes that it sounds
like Celtic music with a hip-hop
twist.
"I guess if you wanted to sub-
categorize it though, it sort of has
a Britpop gloss to it," Newman
said.
After several moments con-
templating different bands with
musical similarities (U2, Cold-
play, REM, Counting Crows, the
Killers), drummer Steve Julian
comes to a conclusion.
"Our music is definitely rock,"
he said.
On Saturday, the band will

like they were concocted in Jeezy and

as they await the outcome

which will be released in the
fall.
The guys want to get it
out and receive enough ex-

pondered over a daunting list be-
fore making a decision.
Colourslide came to Lawhon's
mind through a song by Swedish
band Kent.
The band spells color with a
'u' because it feels the word is
more eye-catching.
"If you get to a certain size, it
doesn't matter what your name
is," Lawhon said. "No one dwells
on what the Smashing Pumpkins
means. They just know who the
band is."
Though its popularity isn't
at a Smashing Pumpkins size,
Colourslide hopes it is only a
matter of time before people will
focus on the music it plays, with-
out deliberating the band's name
or musical classification.
"Eventually we'd like to sign a
label and get really big," Newman
said. "Hopefully our next album
gets us the exposure we need to
really launch our career."

Ostrich, kangaroo, 'gator and rat-
tlesnake are not items typically found
on a Mexican restaurant's menu, but
Boca Fiesta can hardly be considered
a traditional Mexican restaurant.
The restaurant, which opened this
summer and is located downtown, at
232 SE First St., touts a unique menu
and a continuously blossoming social
atmosphere.
With a co-founder who spent the
last eight years playing drums in one
of Gainesville's most revered bands,
Against Me!, and a name that trans-
lates to "Mouth Party," how could
one not be intrigued?
Boca Fiesta's co-founder, War-
ren Oakes, toured the world several
times over with Against Me!. Along
the way he has tasted food from doz-
ens of countries from putrefied
shark in Iceland, to kangaroo in
Australia. "I
The decision to become a res-
taurateur came to Oakes during MUCI
his time traveling and perform- ani
ing with Against Me!
"Food and music have always tha
been my two passions," Oakes
said. "A realization came early
on that you have to eat multiple
times a day, every day for the
rest of your life, so you might as
well enjoy it and do it well."
Oakes always had an idea of the
type of establishment he hoped to
open, but being so consumed with
music, the implementation escaped
him, which is where co-owner Jacob
Ihde stepped in.
"He has opened restaurants be-
fore. He won a silver medal at the
Pizza Olympics last year," Oakes
said. "He's got quite a food service
pedigree under his belt."
Oakes planned to split his time
between recording and touring with
Against Me! and opening the doors
at Boca Fiesta. But he soon discovered
he would be spread to thin.
"It wasn't going to be feasible to
do both simultaneously," he said.
To avoid short changing either
project, Oakes chose to commit to the
restaurant.
"I had a really good run playing

Kangaroo meat is low in choles-
rol and cosuming it helps the envi-
nment.
"They are dangerously overpopu-
ed in Australia right now, so it's ac-
ally encouraged to consume them
livestock in order to shift the focus
ray from cows and lamb and other
ore traditional meats," said Oakes.
The game meats are also rich in
vor.
"You don't need to suffer through
ting this weird meat to be good
the planet. They stand out on the
taste aspect as well," he said.
While meat is a staple item on
the menu, Boca Fiesta welcomes
carnivores and herbivores alike.
"The tempeh is a living food and
has a great flavor to it," Oakes
said.
The house tempeh is made in
Gainesville and brought in daily.
Customers can also create a
vegetable protein taco, burrito or
taco salad. Commonly known as
TVP, most restaurants mix it in
with ground beef to cut costs. But,
ca Fiesta serves TVP by itself as a
found beef mockup.
"A lot of people love it. My dad
a meat eater, and the TVP taco is
s favorite thing on the menu," said
ikes.
Boca Fiesta's business will soon go
yond serving up tacos and marga-
as, as it begins to embrace down-
wn Gainesville's nightlife.The res-
urant already screens movies in its
urtyard and Oakes hopes to soon
ake live music a staple.
"We have a band lined up to play
on as sort of a test run," he said.
Warren wants Boca Fiesta to be a
ace where patrons can enjoy down-
wn as a place to go for something

Tweetups bring online


friends face to face


JON SILMAN + AVENUE WRITER
Demi Moore stopped a desper-
ate suicide attempt by re-posting an
ominous message. A University of
California, Berkeley student evad-
ed Egyptian prison by posting the
word "arrested." And Gainesville
residents who had never met in per-
son partied together at a local Japa-
nese restaurant.
Though seemingly unrelated and
in different comers of the world,
these events have one thing in com-
mon Twitter.
The Gainesville Tweetup, a gath-
ering of people who are friends on
Twitter, was held at Shooting Star,
203 SW Second Ave., on July 16.
Michelle Hipps, a 22-year-old UF
graduate, got the idea for the event
when she saw a tweet about a meet
up for Twitter users in New York
City.
"The tweetup is for both person-
al and professional gain," she said.
"I get to meet the people I've been
tweeting with and I'd also like to
make some professional contacts."
Hipps said that Twitter is not just a
way to spit superficiality in 149 char-
acters or less, like others say it is. To
her, Twitter is more about what peo-
ple are thinking and not about what
movies they like or what books


they've read. The content is less im-
portant than the actual thought pro-
cess of a person writing a tweet.
Hipps said her generation is not
as superficial as the ones that came
before it. People now want to delve
deeper and find out if they think the
same way or share the same ideals.
"What Twitter is really asking
you is, 'What are you thinking?'
'What's capturing your attention?'"
she said.
Twitter provides a good medium
for college grads to network with
companies looking for new talent,
especially in the field of media and
communications.
"Twitter is great for networking,
"Hipps said. "It's amazing for net-
working."
At the event, a crowd of about
25 people drank beer, cocktails and
enjoyed free appetizers from 6 to 8
p.m., at the second of what Hipps
hopes to be many future Gainesville
tweetups. The first event was held
at Stubbie Shirt Pub in downtown
Gainesville about a month ago.
Brian Smith, 28, video opera-
tions supervisor for UF, came to the
event to network with other local
Gainesville tweeters. Smith thinks
Twitter is a socially acceptable way
to meet friends, as having met the

people through tweets provides an
instant ice breaker. Twitter allows
users to create a personal connec-
tions as they go along, as opposed to
Facebook, where you already have
that personal connection.
Twitter is different from other
social media sites in that there is no
profile to look at, no persona to delve


into and no pictures to browse.
Twitter accounts are simple.
On Twitter, you get to know
people through their tweets.
"I've met some good contacts and
made a few decent friends out of it,"
he said.
Smith met Gary Ritzenthaler, a
PhD student in mass communica-


tion at the UF, at the first tweetup.
The men found out they were col-
leagues and have since become
good friends.
"Now when I see him around we
have something to talk about," he
said.

fashions down a poolside cat-
walk, a hip-hop dance group
will perform, DJ Pop Rocks will
spin and security will be in place
to ensure everyone's safety.
The party will run from 2 to
6 p.m., at The Enclave Apart-
ment's pool. The event is free
and will include free drinks,
food and clothes courtesy of Di-
osabella's Fashions.
"If you look down at your
wardrobe and you say 'Hmm, I
dress like a peasant,' then come
out here to the pool party. You
don't have anything else to do
- come get some free Christian
Audigier Ed Hardy gear," said
guest model Greg Halstead of
the Real World Hollywood's on
his video invite.
Diosabella's Fashions is a de-
signer boutique based in Las Ve-
gas. The owners recently opened


a store in Butler Plaza and will
be providing the models' attire
and free Ed Hardy shirts, hats,
bathing suits, skim boards, jeans
and purse giveaways. The store
has teamed up with the Network
Promotions and The Enclave
Apartments to give Gainesville a
little taste of lusty Vegas.
"Our events are geared at
giving students the best college
experience possible," Cameron
said. "We aim to bring those
crazy college parties in the mov-
ies to life."
Within the last year, The Net-
work has thrown many parties.
Currently it hosts Friday nights
at Rue Bar, and the weekly prof-
its go toward putting on its infa-
mous pool parties. The Network
hosted the Cinco De Mayo pool
party at the Enclave, the Blink
Fashion show at Gainesville
Place, the Jefferson 2nd Avenue
rooftop parties and the evening
Lexington Crossing pool parties,
with each attracting more than
2,000 scantily dad bodies.
"The Network throws the
best pool parties. Game over,"
Halstead said.
The Network has a social
networking site, thenetworkpro-
motions.com, that allows party-
goers to stay connected and re-
ceive drink specials, a place on
VIP lists and free entry to any
Network party.


Binges won't mend a broken heart


BRANDT WILLIAMS + AVENUE WRITER
0 It's 3 a.m., you're piss-drunk, out of breath, roll-
ing among sweat-stained sheets and incapable of
* sleep. No, you're not in the thrusts of a one-night
stand; you're dealing with heartbreak after being
served a monogamist's worst fear: the breakup.
S Face it, even in the promised land for the pro-
miscuous, known to many as college, sometimes
you become inexplicably drawn and committed to
Another. As graduation nears and your significant
other considers staying up all night studying Anat-
omy 101 with that friendly classmate, someone is
* gonna get the boot.
This is made increasingly worse if your rela-
tionship was built on love; it's no coincidence love
0 is also a four-letter word. If you're unfortunate
enough to find yourself in this scenario, then you
might believe your non-beating heart was just pu-
0 red in a blender. When in water this deep, there's
no quick fix and those Vicodin pills aren't gonna
help you much, either.
S A lot of newly single people go on weeklong
benders, complete with Lindsay Lohan-esque
downward spiral. Booze and drugs will numb you.
SBut eventually they wear off and then the memory
of your ex is sure to hit you harder than a run-away
SRTS bus. Couple that with a study-impairing hang-
over and pretty soon you're failing a freshman class
like Marriage and Families.
S One of the best things you can do post-breakup
is evading the former apple-of-your-eye. This in-
cludes screening their calls and texts because, like
* Gwen Stefani, you're just too damn busy "walking
into spiderwebs."
Taking a leave of absence from Facebook won't
hurt either. Facebook has a cruel sense of humor,
and Mark Zuckerberg somehow knows your dat-
ing history; so you can look forward to mini-feed
posts indicating your ex is having an impressively
easier time getting over the relationship. You don't
want to see that, and you deserve better.


Packing away memen-
tos and reminders is a
healthy idea. No need for
a ritualistic burning of the
sheets you shared, but your
ex-lover's picture sitting
within eyesight of your bed
can go.
Brandt It's crucial to work out
Williams your feelings and gain clo-
Columnist sure. Over-priced therapy
is unnecessary this is
what your friends are for lucky, lucky them.
But avoid drowning in self-pity and, even if you're
a borderline-masochist, stop wondering what
could've prevented the breakup. Breakups happen
for a reason and you. just. need. to. move. on.
Then comes the questionable process of re-
bounding. As hard as it might get, avoid hooking
up with people before you're ready.
Should you wake up next to a reasonably attrac-
tive classmate and still want to gnaw your arm off
in an attempt to escape his or her bed, you're prob-
ably not ready to be seeing other people. Occasion-
ally the perfect stroke your ego needs will consist
of your friend Cuervo, Miami's finest "herbal rem-
edies" or a sultry one-night-stand, just don't go too
crazy.
Mostly, take time to yourself. Pick up a sport,
take on a project or focus on your upcoming exam.
Treat yourself to regular gym visits (endorphins are
nature's anti-depressants), lounge by the pool and
take your Visa on a field trip to Gucci.
Looking better than your ex is the world's most
just revenge, so those days at the gym and pool
will pay off when inevitably finding yourself in the
oh-FML pathway of your former partner. While
they've clearly gained a belated Freshman 15 and
have a stage-five clinger hanging on their arm, your
toned and golden body is about to give them whip-
lash.

Current trends evoke spirit of cliche stereotypes
nrnrI'AU L rimIn A ..,.. .,........n


Kr


The pages of Elle, my favorite
fashion magazine, were one of the
last places I'd expect to find a flash-
back to my middle-school days.
But there it was, wedged between
the trend reports and style advice, I
was sent back to eight grade where
everyone conformed to a perfect
social stereotype. The cliques were
grouped according to who you hung
out with, what music you listened
to, and most importantly, what you
wore.
There were "Punks," "Preps,"
"Hippies," "Gangsters," "Goths,"
and "Nerds" labels I now use
with reservation. If you didn't fit
into one of those, then you were a
"nobody," which therefore account-
ed as a group of its own.
I remember feeling almost lim-
ited in what I was allowed to wear
either because of judgment from my
peers or fear of The Force, otherwise
known as our school dress code.
Any middle schooler was fashion-
ably doomed and guaranteed a spot
in either one of the aforementioned
stereotypes. Or even worse, they
could be defined as a poser, the cruel
word that stamped "fake" on your
forehead.
Now there it was again; printed
in Elle magazine were current trends
influenced by classic stereotypes.
Today, the fashion industry is re-
defining what it means to be a poser.
Unlike middle school, this industry
is not afraid of what people are go-
ing to be labeling them or saying

everywhere on dresses, purses,
button-downs and jeans.
3. Studs
Studs in all shapes and sizes
are embellishing the most basic of
pieces. Forever 21 displays sandals
smothered in silver studs or leath-
er bracelets decked out with rows
of 3D pyramids. Five years ago I
would have reserved these items for
either the punk rockers with electric
blue hair or some S&M contraption,
never expecting studs and spikes to
stylishly decorate a light pink tank
top or a girly handbag.
4. Stripes
Preppy is a trend that always
has and always will exist. Scholas-
tic stripes are being borrowed from
the Preps in order to make an edgier
statement. The would-be-basic cot-
ton T-shirt is turning chic, adorning
parallel lines in black and white or
varying stripe width and direction.
5. Simplicity
In middle school, these were the
kids who wore jeans and a white T-
shirt, steering away from any sort
of fashion conformity the "no-
bodies." In the fashion industry,
infamous basic tees hold a level of
sophistication that cannot be de-
nied. There is something confident
and sexy about a crisp white T-shirt
teamed with your favorite pair of
jeans.
These trends make it clear that
outside the hallway walls, there
is an adult world still influenced
by its adolescent days, a world
where fashion boundaries are being
crossed and social borders are being

Mullen brings UF


style to Miss. State


By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Staff Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

HOOVER, Ala. Missis-
sippi State took Dan Mullen out
of Gainesville, but the Bulldogs
hope Starkville doesn't take the
Florida out of Dan Mullen.
The Gators' former offensive
coordinator had a lot to say on
what to expect from a program
that has been to only one bowl
game since 2001
and an offense
that ranked last
in the Southeast-
Football em Conference
in scoring (15.2
points per game)
a season ago.
"If you turn on a game film,
watch a team, all 11 players on
the field on any given snap, play
with a relentless effort, play with
a passion for the game of football
for 60 minutes of that game, then
we'll have a successful season,"
Mullen said.
One of UF's team slogans
implemented by coach Urban


Meyer is "four to six seconds of
relentless effort," and Mullen
said he is intent on bringing that
hardworking, focused attitude
to his new squad.
In a 15-minute interview
with MSU junior K.J. Wright, the
linebacker used the phrase "re-
lentless effort" three times when
describing the new goals for the
Bulldogs.
Terminology, however,
isn't the only thing that made
the nearly 600-mile trip from
Gainesville to Starkville, Miss.
The Bulldogs will switch
from a run-heavy offense to the
spread Mullen and Meyer made
famous in The Swamp, and Mul-
len, who is looking to emphasize
special teams play, will be the
team's special teams coach just
as Meyer is for the Gators.
The 37-year-old coach has
also brought the "Champions
Club" with him in hopes of
holding players accountable on
and off the field.
It seems the only things he
didn't bring with him are the

Shredding suspects around


Tebow's robbed All-SEC pick


HOOVER, Ala.
Afew weeks ago, which of these
would you have thought Tim
Tebow had the best chance of be-
coming?
A) A two-time Heisman Trophy win-
ner.
B) A three-time national champion.
C) A unanimous selection to the pre-
season All-Southeastern Conference first
team, as voted by the coaches.
No matter how lofty your expectations
for Tebow and the Gators this season, op-
tion C definitely looked the safest. Until
the All-SEC team was announced earlier
this month, that is.
Tebow came up a vote shy of being
a unanimous pick, denying one of the
game's best-ever players a distinction that
Tennessee comer Eric Berry, Alabama re-
ceiver Julio Jones and LSU lineman Ciron

Days. Find it on alligatorSports.org.


Black earned.
I'm not going to
waste time trying to
justify why Tebow
deserved a unani-
mous selection,
Mike McCall because that's like
McCall-in' It gathering a bunch
Like I See It of evidence to prove
mmccall@alligatororg to someone the sky
is blue or grass is
green.
It's not really a huge injustice either, but
it does say something interesting about

Arkansas prepares new QB


By MIKE DIFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer

HOOVER, Ala. All eyes in Fayette-
ville, Ark., are on sophomore signal caller
Ryan Mallett.
The Michigan transfer redshirted last
year and will now take the reins of Ar-
kansas coach Bobby Petrino's pass-happy
offense.
"One thing Ryan can really do is throw
the deep ball," Petrino said. "If we can
run the ball better and run the ball more
consistently, it should open up our deep
passing game and our ability to get the
ball down the field."
Mallett threw for 892 yards and seven
touchdowns in 11 games as a true fresh-
man for the Wolverines during the 2007-
08 season. He played sparingly as a back-
up to starter Chad Henne but threw for
three touchdowns against Notre Dame in
his first career start.
"He's got one of the strongest arms
I've ever seen," tight end D.J. Williams
said. "In practice, I've got to bring a cou-
ple pairs of extra gloves because he tears

the gripping off with his passes."
Arkansas went 5-7 last year in Petrino's
first season at the helm, and quarterback
Casey Dick threw more interceptions (14)
than touchdowns (13).
Now the Hogs are hoping that Mallett,
a quarterback tailor-made for Petrino's
pro-style offense, can right the ship.
"He's just as accurate as he is pow-
erful, and he's going to be a great quar-

year," Williams said.
At 6-foot-7, Mallett

fectively.

Top 10 Burning Questions for 2009-10


How will women's basketball respond after two years


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
sports@alligator.org

In two years at the helm of the
UF women's basketball program,
Amanda Butler has turned in one of
the best turnarounds in school his-
tory (2007-08) and a top-10 ranking
en route to a return to the NCAA
Tournament (2008-09).
Thatbeckons the question: Where
will Butler's Gators go from here?
The upcoming season will cer-
tainly be an uphill
battle with the depar-
ture of four seniors
(Sha Brooks, Kim
Critton, Marshae
Dotson and Aneika
Henry).
The 2008-09 Gators tied a pro-
gram record with 24 wins and set
a new school mark with a 15-game
winning streak.
Brooks was the team's go-to
player on the wing, while the 5-foot-
11 Dotson was one of the best under-
sized post players in the country.
Butler has shown the ability to
make her players continually fight,
but the Gators only managed a No. 4
seed in the Southeastern Conference
Tournament with one of their most
talented teams in recent history.
One reason was UF's 7-5 road re-


cord. And despite the gaudy overall
record of 24-8, the Gators failed to
show up to play on certain nights -


losing at Florida Gulf Coast and at
home against Arkansas.
But even without two of their best


players in recent history, the Gators
could still be a talented team.
Three-point specialist Jordan


UF women's basketball coach Amanda Butler will have her work cut out for her as the Gators try to follow
up one of the best seasons in program history after losing seniors Sha Brooks and Marshae Dotson.


of success?
Jones, a South Carolina transfer, is
eligible after sitting out last season.
Rising senior guard Jennifer Mos-
sor is back after missing most of last
season with a tom right ACL. Rising
sophomore Trumae Lucas earned
more playing time as her freshman
campaign wore on and will likely
find a starting spot in the backcourt.
Butler did well on the recruiting
trail, signing 2009 Ms. North Caroli-
na Basketball Christal Caldwell. The
5-foot-11 guard led West Charlotte
High to the 2009 4A state champi-
onship. Joining her in the back-
court will be 5-foot-7 guard Tessah
Holt, who was named The Atlanta
Journal-Constitution's 2009 Georgia
Class 4A Girls' Basketball Player
of the year. The Gators also signed
6-foot-2 forwards Jennifer George
and Lily Svete.
The Gators will now have five
players taller than 6 feet, compared
to two in Butler's first year.
This year's schedule has not been
released, but it was announced that
UF will play at Rutgers on Dec. 7.
It's certain to say that the Gators
will not sneak up on anyone after
their two-year revival. They have
outperformed preseason expecta-
tions the last two years in the SEC.
Now as the bar gets higher, will
UF be able to keep topping it?


Recruits coming to Gainesville for Friday Night Lights


By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alligator.org

Friday night, some of the top high school
football players in the nation will gather un-
der the lights of one of college football's most
storied stadiums.


This is UF's fifth annual Friday Night Lights
camp, one of the biggest recruiting events in
the country. The players, including many ver-
bal commitments for UF's class of 2010, will
get a taste of a college football atmosphere.
Matt Elam, a UF 2010 verbal commitment
who will be attending FNL, told Rivals.com
he heard rumors during his recruitment that


Urban Meyer would not be in Gainesville after
next season.
Despite the rumors, the
Gators' next class already
has 15 verbal commitments,
Recruiting and with many prospects
from the class of 2011 ex-
pected to be in attendance Friday night, UF


will not likely see much of a drop-off in the
coming years.
"I assume they're working on 2011 al-
ready," said Jamie Newberg, a recruiting ana-
lyst for Rivals.com. "You look at how much
that topic has been in the news, yet they're still
sitting on one of the top classes in the country
on paper right now."

Defensive players see improvement in offense under Mullen's spread


MULLEN, from page 28


two national championships he won with UF
in 2006 and 2008, something Mullen's new
players are acutely aware of.
"He has what we want," Wright said. "I
believe that what coach Meyer has done, he's


going to do the same."
Wright said he was upset to learn that pre-
vious coach Sylvester Croom would not be
back for this season but became excited when
he found out Mullen would be the new coach
while watching SportsCenter on ESPN.
Though the defensive philosophy run
fast and hit hard, according to Wright -


hasn't changed, the offense
is moving in a more dynam-
ic direction.
"I don't like to get scored
on in practice," Wright said.
"But it kind of made me
happy to see that we are
getting better."


Iullen


The two programs are still on opposite
ends of the SEC food chain, but MSU and UF
will undoubtedly be linked for as long as Mul-
len resides in Starkville.
Wright said he would like to play for Mey-
er if he had to choose another coach within the
SEC, and from the looks of things, he might
find that playing for Mullen isn't too far off.


MIKE, from page 28


Brooks denied they were the one.
Petrino's response: "I'm not crazy."
The media contingent from Florida
seems pretty determined to solve this
whodunit, so the rest of the coaches
will be asked the same thing.
"I don't know if y'all are going to
find that culprit that didn't vote for
him, but you can tell [Tebow] it wasn't
me," Johnson said.
Really, the only reason why a coach
wouldn't have voted for Tebow is to
make a statement. Football is what
these guys do, and they all know who
the best quarterback in the conference
is.
So here's a breakdown of the re-
maining suspects, excluding Urban
Meyer (coaches couldn't vote for their
own player):

THURSDAY
Nick Saban, Alabama Maybe he's
still upset about losing the SEC title. Or
maybe he really likes Mississippi's Je-
van Snead. But as much as people hate
Saban, I don't see it. He's high-profile
and has shown Tebow plenty of love
in the past, and he doesn't really have


anything to gain by doing it. And he's
a good evaluator of talent. And I don't
think he's stupid.
Mark Richt, Georgia Richt and
Tebow are cut from the same cloth, and
regardless of his hate for the Gators or
Meyer's timeout-calling, he isn't the
type to take that out on Tebow.
Houston Nutt, Ole Miss Nutt
was the early favorite since he has the
conference's second-best quarterback,
but since he couldn't vote for Snead,
it probably wasn't him. If it was, it
means he voted for a third party and
views Tebow as the conference's third-
best quarterback. Nic Harris would be
proud.

FRIDAY
Gene Chizik, Auburn Chizik
played at UF, but he's a new guy, and
he's fighting an uphill battle in trying
to win over a fan base that just waved
goodbye to Tommy Tuberville. For this
reason, I'm taking Chizik as the dark
horse to upset you-know-who. He'd
be loved by Tigers fans for it, and he
can deflect some criticism by saying he
hasn't coached against Tebow.
Steve Spurrier, South Carolina -
No way, right?


Les Miles, LSU Miles recruited
Tebow, and by all accounts, they got
along well, so I don't think it was him.
I'd put him and Saban on the same level
of likelihood.
Lane Kiffin, Tennessee It's almost
like the SEC made the schedule with
this in mind. Kiffin is going last, mean-
ing that by the time he takes the podi-
um, it's pretty likely that we'll already
have 10 denials in hand. Kiffin told The
Associated Press he voted for Tebow,
but I don't want to count him out yet. I
believe in his curmudgeonry.
If everyone else says they voted for
Tebow and Kiffin sticks to his story, it
either means he voted for him and isn't
as crazy as we thought, or it means he
didn't, is lying and is calling an un-
named coach a liar. That is going to be
fun.
On the flip side, it helps his case that
he denied it. If he voted for someone
else, he'd most likely come out and say
it, not keep it private.
Of course, this whole witch hunt is
based on us assuming that these coach-
es won't do what most of them are very
good at: lying in public.
So we may never get an answer, but
if that happens, Kiffin is probably going
to take the blame.

Top 10 Burning Questions for 2009-10

Will off-the-field issues


continue to be a problem?


By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
sports@alligator.org


After making headlines all sea-
son en route to a national champi-
onship, UF was back in the news
this off-season.
After cornerback Janoris Jenkins
was arrested by Gainesville police
in June and charged with misde-
meanor affray and resisting arrest
without violence after an alleged
fight outside of a nightclub the
24th arrest of a UF football player
in coach Urban Meyer's four years
-public outcry against Meyer and
the Gators reached a new level.
That leads Gators fans to a se-
ries of related questions: Will the
football team's off-the-field issues
continue? Will they still be a big
deal in the media?
In reality, UF's troubles were
not disproportionately greater
than those of any other college
football program over the last
four years. Among its rivals, the
number of arrests during that time
span fell somewhere near the aver-


age. Georgia players were arrested
30 times, Tennessee has totaled 21
arrests and FSU has tallied 13 ar-
rests.
Every major college football
program struggles with off-the-
field issues brought to light by the
media and criticized by the public.
But success breeds contempt,
and after a national title, a few
off-season arrests made the Gators
easy targets for the
media, and Meyer's
S control of his team
was brought into
question.
Six of the arrest-
ed players were not recruited by
Meyer, and the number of charges
by recruiting class over the last
four years has decreased: eight
(2005), eight (2006), two (2007), one
(2008) and zero (2009).
Few of the arrests have been of
a serious nature, and three of the
arrests were from players who
were already dismissed from the
team at the time.
After the outcry against the 24
arrests in four years, the eighth
