UF lacks alert system equal to USF's


* USF REACHED 97 PERCENT OF ITS
CONTACTS WITHIN FOUR MINUTES.

By SIMON PERSICO and
ROBERTA 0. ROBERTS
Alligator Writers

After the threat of an armed gunman on
University of South Florida campus ended


without harm Friday afternoon, UF said its
response system is similar, adequate and im-
proving.
USF used text messaging, Web site updates
and intercoms to keep students and faculty
aware of developing information, tools which
UF uses or plans to use.
During the recent gun scare, MoBull, a text
alert system named after USF's homed mas-
cot, reached 97 percent of their contacts within


four minutes, said Lara Wade, USF spokes-
woman.
UF took 20 to 30 minutes to contact most
students in recent tests, UF
On spokesman Steve Orlando said.
Campus Students at USF were first
alerted of a possible gunman
by a voice over loudspeakers, four of which
broadcast from the top of parking garages for
maximum coverage, Wade said.


UF is installing a speaker system, which
should be completed within a year, according
to William Properzio, director of UF's Envi-
ronmental Health and Safety Department.
The speakers will be installed in class-
rooms and outside areas, such as the Plaza of
the Americas. The system will cost about $1
million, Properzio said.
According to Orlando, speaker installation

UF dethroned as


No. 1 party school
By THOMAS STEWART "People who do what I
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligatororg do at universities dread


UF's year-long reign as the top
party school in the nation ended
abruptly at noon Monday, when
it was announced that Penn State
University had taken the infa-
mous title.
UF slipped to No. 2 on the list,
published each year by the Princ-
eton Review in its college guide,
"The Best 371 Colleges," which
hit shelves today.
The ranking means UF has
high levels of drug and alcohol
use, a popular Greek system and
students who don't spend much
time studying, according to sur-
vey results from 122,000 students
at 371 colleges.
If UF had retained its No. 1
position, it would have been the
first school to do so since 1995,
when the University of Rhode
Island completed a three-year
run in the top spot, according to


this announcement

Steve Orlando
UF spokesman

Robert Franek, the author of the
college guide.
Steve Orlando, UF's spokes-
man, said he was relieved UF had
been dethroned.
"People who do what I do at
universities dread this announce-
ment coming out," he said.
One reason UF may have
slipped to the second spot this
year is that students didn't hold
as many sports championships,
he said.
When the last rankings came
out, UF held three national cham-
pionships two in men's bas-
ketball and one in football.

Universities collaborate on 'supercomputer' project


By JESSICA CHAPMAN
Alligator Writer

A new supercomputer at UF is
making it easier to do everything
from researching cancer to predict-
ing the weather.
The computer, named Novo-G,
is about 10 to 100 times faster and
uses five to 10 times less energy than


conventional computers, making it
the most powerful in its class.
The computer at UF was finished
and became fully functional last
week.
Novo-G is easily customizable
for specific tasks, said professor
Alan George, director of UF's recon-
figurable computing center.
George explained that while con-


ventional com-
puters are inflex-
ible, computers
like Novo-G can
be modified to
operate more ef-
ficiently.
George con-
George trasted tradi-
tional computers, which he said are


like toy blocks that have been glued
together, with the highly modifiable
Novo-G.
"If you're good at it, you can
have an Eiffel Tower one minute...
and the White House [the next]," he
said.
The project was a collaboration
between UF and George Washington
University, Brigham Young Univer-


sity and Virginia Tech University, as
well as about 30 other business part-
ners, including NASA, Intel and the
National Security Agency. George
said UF's center will continue to re-
search Novo-G to better understand
the system.
"When it's all figured out, it'll be
in Best Buy," he said. "But we're a
long way away from that."

Show to end summer season


By STEVE JOHNSON
Alligator Writer

The UF School of Theatre and Dance will
wrap up its summer season by bringing perspec-
tives from Israel, Africa and the Big Apple to the
Nadine McGuire Theatre and Dance Pavilion.
"Sylvie, An Evening of Dances and Tales"
will open Wednesday night, incorporating the
works of UF professor Neta Pulvermacher and
24 of UF's Summer Dance Intensive students.
"We decided to bring the world here," said
Pulvermacher. "The idea is to think globally and
dance locally."
Focusing on her upbringing in Lehavot Ha-
bashan, a kibbutz in northern Israel, the show
features her award-winning dance "Five Beds/
Children of the Dream."
A kibbutz is a collective community based on
agriculture.
"You share your life with 16 to 18 peers," Pul-
vermacher said about her upbringing. "It meant
that from birth, rather than live with your par-
ents in same house, you only saw them every
day in the afternoon."
Pulvermacher began dancing at 14 years old
and found her calling one year later when danc-
ing and choreographing at an area school close
to her kibbutz.
"Dance and theater have the capacity to reach
and touch beyond words," she said. "It has other
means of expressing ideas, thoughts and feel-
ings."
In 1986, one year after graduating from The
Juilliard School in New York City, Pulvermach-
er formed her own dance company, The Neta


Dance Company.
Since joining the staff at UF three years ago,
Pulvermacher brought her own life experiences
to the stage.
"Sylvie," a piece inspired by Pulvermacher's
recent trip to Senegal, is her most recent work.

"Dance and theater have the capacity
to reach and touch beyond words. It
has other means of expressing ideas,
thoughts and feelings."
Neta Pulvermacher
UF professor

The title of the piece comes from during her
trip when she taught choreography to dance in-
structors from across Africa.
"Before I left they threw a potluck in my hon-
or and roasted a whole goat," she said. "Sylvie
was the name of the goat."
The 24 UF students will be joined by four of
Pulvermacher's dancers from her New York City
studio, two of whom are UF alumni.
"There's an array of music, dancing, signing
and yelling," said Miriam Rosenberg, a UF se-
nior dance major. "It's an emotional journey."
The show opens Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the
Nadine McGuire Theatre and Dance Pavilion in
Studio Theatre G-6.
An additional show will be at 9 p.m.
The performance runs until Friday with two
shows per night. Tickets are $13 for students and
$17 for the general public and can be purchased
at the University Box Office or www.ticketmas-
ter.com, according to the box office Web site.

celebrate," Orlando said.
It's also possible UF President
Bernie Machen's attempts to curb
alcohol consumption have had an ef-
fect on UF's reputation, but it's hard
to tell, Orlando said.
"This is anything but a scientific
survey," he said.
Machen, who is in Indonesia
meeting with university leaders,
could not be reached for comment
Monday.
In addition to three other No. 2
finishes, UF placed first in one of the
survey's 62 categories: Best Career
Services. The ranking means stu-
dents rated UF's job placement ser-
vices highly.
UF was ranked No. 13 in Best Ca-
reer Services last year, the first year
the ranking was used.
Wayne Wallace, director of UF's
Career Resource Center, said he
thinks his hard-working staff and the
center's use of student surveys have
a lot to do with the level of satisfac-
tion.
"I think that being responsive to
student interests and needs has re-
ally been the key," he said.
And, he said, 99 of the 100 compa-

In the category of Lots of Beer, UF
ranked No. 4.
Students had mixed feelings
about UF's drop in the party school
ranking.
Nicole Frankel, a music and pre-
health sophomore, said she was glad
UF was no longer No. 1.
"I think [being No. 1] has kind
of a negative connotation," Frankel
said. "The university is taken a little
less seriously,"
But freshman Alex Patel said she
didn't believe that Penn State was ac-
tually a bigger party school than UF.
"I don't think it's true. I get texts
about parties every night," Patel
said. "They must be partying a lot,
like severely," she said.
Jake Marika, a sociology sopho-
more, said he doesn't think the rank-
ing means much.
"Whoever says they party the
most parties the most," he said. "It's
bound to change every year."
However, he said, the ranking
might make Machen focus less on
student drinking.
"Maybe it's a good thing," he said,
"because Bernie will be less likely to
get his panties in a bunch."

already began at the law school.
Orlando also said a low number of UF staff are set to
receive alert text messages compared to other major Florida
universities such as University of Miami, which can contact
88 percent of its employees through text in an emergency.
This may account for the disparity in delay time between
UF's text system and USF's MoBull.
UF also uses "reverse 911" which allows the Alachua
County Sheriff's Office to send telephone messages, or text-
to-speech, to every phone in specific buildings on campus.
"In a recent test it took us anywhere from five to 10 min-
utes to reach three buildings," Orlando said.
UF uses the ConnectED service to text information to stu-
dents and faculty in case of an emergency, Orlando said.
However, ConnectED, a product of Massachusetts-based
Blackboard Inc., can run into trouble when many people in
the same area use its service simultaneously.
"It's like trying to make a phone call at a Gator game,"
Orlando said.
Phone reception dead zones are also an obstacle to UF's
text alert system.
"Until recently I didn't even get cell phone service at my
desk," Orlando said.
Beyond alert systems, Orlando stressed students should
be aware of their surroundings.
"If you observe something [weird] in a friend, report it,"
he said. "Tell somebody."
Above all, Orlando said UF's Student affairs and coun-
seling staff as the most important part of campus safety.
"If we can address something like that early on, we stand
a much better chance of preventing a bad situation later on.
Prevention is always a better path," he wrote in an e-mail.

UF allots $5M for construction of business center


By SHAY BRODERICK
Alligator Writer

Most incubators at Shands at
UF are occupied by newborns, but
thanks to an $8.2 million grant, UF
is building a different kind of in-
cubator.
The grant for the Florida In-
novation Hub, a business center
for startup companies, was an-
nounced Friday along with plans
for building the 45,000-square-
foot facility, according to a UF
press release.
UF will contribute an addi-
tional $5 million to the project and
will obtain this money mainly
through royalty income earned
from sources like faculty research,
said Win Phillips, UF's vice presi-
dent for research.
Scheduled for completion in
December 2011, the building will
provide office space, laboratories
and conference rooms for several
budding technological businesses
and companies connected to the
UF community.
Ed Poppell, UF's vice president
of business affairs, said that as
soon as planning is finished, work-
ers will begin construction on the
facility, which will hopefully be
within the next six months.


The building will be construct-
ed on what is now a parking lot on
the northeast corner of Shands at
AGH site, Poppell said.
The facility will also house
UF's Office of Technology Licens-

"1 : a


ing and UF Tech Connect, which
finds technology from research
that is patentable and promotes
the licensing of these technologies
to the market.
Phillips said that UF developed


the idea of a building a new incu-
bator after seeing the success of a
similar hub in Alachua County,
which opened in 1995.
He said that various business
sectors will use the facility, in-


ouunresy or ur

cluding chemistry, agricultural
and engineering fields.
Phillips said the hub will pro-
vide constant communication be-
tween companies in the building
and people who license technol-
ogy and the ability to share re-
sources in order to save money.
"There is no question that a
company's ability to succeed is far
greater in an incubator," he said.
The federal Economic Develop-
ment Administration awarded the
grant, which is one of the largest
of its kind ever given by the EDA's
Atlanta regional office, said EDA
regional representative Philip T.
Trader in the press release.
"We expect it to be extremely
successful," he said.
Katie Haney, a health educa-
tion and behavior senior, agrees
with Phillips and said she thinks
the hub is going to continue to
improve the UF business commu-
nity.
She is also optimistic about the
new jobs that these future com-
panies will create for Gainesville
residents, she said.
"As a soon-to-be graduate, I
think it's a great idea," Haney
said. "It's something that is going
to make Gainesville an even better
place to live."


Florida drivers discouraged from texting while driving


By JENNA EZELL
Alligator Contributing Writer

For now, Florida nicely asks drivers to
stay off their cell phones and just drive.
Through its "Stay Alive... Just Drive"
campaign, Florida is taking a softer approach
than the six states and the District of Colum-
bia that ban the use of hand-held cell phones
while driving. Another 17 states have partial
bans.
Monday the Florida Highway Patrol be-
gan distributing brochures and pamphlets


during routine stops to educate drivers about
how to avoid and eliminate distractions while
driving, FHP Capt. Mark Welch said.
FHP teamed up with the "Stay Alive...
Just Drive" program to campaign after Gov.
Charlie Crist declared July as Distracted
Driving Awareness Month, Welch said.
Jay Anderson, the executive director of
the campaign, said the program asks people
to pull over to do anything other than drive
while behind the wheel.
The most visible distraction while driving
is cell phones, but laptops, iPods, grooming,


eating and disciplining children are also ma-
jor problems, he said.
Anderson said one problem is that young
people are in constant communication and
don't stop when they drive.
"You have to ask yourself if
State the risk is worth it while you're
News behind the wheel," he said.
A typical distraction lasts
about three seconds. A car traveling 45 mph
can travel half the length of a football field in
that amount of time, he said.
"Failure to pay attention results in pre-


ventable crashes," Anderson said.
There were 1,796 crashes in Florida in
2003 that were caused by distracted driv-
ers, according to the Florida Department of
Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles Web
site. Twenty percent of drivers were reported
as having been on their cell phone.
Tips to avoid distraction include: pull
over to text or talk on the phone, read the
newspaper at home, limit the amount of time
spent messing with the radio or CDs and
scan the roadway ahead, according to the
department.

Editorial

Already Aware

Editorial Board calls to

ban texting and driving
Texting while driving is a scenario that is familiar to
most students at UF, and the concept of cell-phone-
addicted-screaming-girl is a trope that is ubiquitous
in our current pop culture. (We recently saw it in an epi-
sode of the Jonas Brothers' TV show, so like, even babies
know about it. Don't ask.)
What should also be familiar, though, is the fact that
nothing strikes fear into the heart of a passenger faster
than the sight of his or her driver (and possible gatekeeper
into the afterlife) lower his or her chance of a safe arrival
with each staccato of the fingertips.
To counter this, six states and Washington D.C. have
enacted a strict ban on texting while driving and made it a
ticketable offense. Florida, however, has not taken it that
far. Instead of outlawing the practice, Florida is attempt-
ing to kill the habit with "awareness."
We don't think this is the best approach. People are
aware of the danger inherent in many activities but con-
tinue to do them anyway (Camel Light, anyone?). It is ob-
vious to everyone with half a brain that driving without
a seat belt isn't such a hot idea, but some of us still won't
wear one until we are busted with a $70 fine.
So why doesn't Florida follow suit and ban texting
while driving? Put simply, fear of big government. We
understand this concern, and it seems reasonable to let
people make their own decisions and worry about the
consequences.
However, it seems silly to set this issue apart from
things that are already criminal like drug abuse and seat-
belt wearing requirements, especially because these "in-
fractions" are only harmful (or potentially harmful) for
those who engage in them. To set texting while driving
apart from other activities such as driving while intoxicat-
ed and shooting people by only suggesting they "try not to
do it," is insane considering those activities put innocent
people at risk of death, whether it be by a 3,000 pound
speeding deathmobile or a handgun.
Try telling a girl (possibly the cell-phone-addicted-
screaming-girl) that drunken driving isn't a good idea,
but she won't get in trouble if she downs 97 cosmos at XS
before jumping into her lime green Volkswagen Beetle to
head to the "after party" with her "ladies." We don't think
she'd listen.
One might ask, "Well, if we ban texting, what's to stop
drivers from being distracted by iPods in their cars?" and it
would be a legitimate concern. However, texting requires
more reading and more constant attention than song se-
lection. Unless someone is apt to change his or her song
choice approximately every three seconds, it wouldn't be
as dangerous as carrying out a full-blown conversation.
(And if such person exists, they probably shouldn't be al-
lowed to drive anyway.)
Florida's decision to use a soft approach in addressing
this matter is spineless. Because they fear the reproach of
self-proclaimed "texters," the government refuses to pro-
tect the citizens who are at the mercy of the texters. When
that includes us, our friends and our moms (who take 25
minutes to figure out how to text "call me," God bless 'em),
it leads us to think that Florida isn't really concerned with
protecting its citizens.

'aila le from Commercial NeWS
,l* I


Column

Columnist reflects on political gaffes


miss President George W. Bush, "Dubya" as I affec-
tionately called him. I don't miss his policies or politics,
but the material he and his administration gave me as
a commentator.
First there were the lost weapons of mass destruction in
Iraq. The deciding factor to invade a country in a war that
has killed thousands of Americans and thousands more
Iraqis was based on either false or fabricated intelligence.
What was the response that came from the White House?
"Our bad."
Then, there was the time when we sacrificed our na-
tional integrity and broke a few national laws along the
way when the Bush White House developed a fondness for
rendition. There wasn't any real outrage when the Ameri-
can public found out that its government had transported
supposed enemy combatants to secret prisons around the
world and tortured them. Instead, the nation gleefully
joined in on the comedy act and said, "Those silly boys in
Washington are up to something new every week!"
Except they weren't. The silly boys in Washington
always propped themselves up against the "Defend
America" platform but somehow managed to let security
at American nuclear sites lapse. When the media discov-
ered the Port of Miami was scheduled to be sold to Dubai,
United Arab Emirates, the public was appalled, but few
were incensed when reporters discovered that less than 10
percent of all incoming cargo at American maritime ports
was screened for explosives and other potential national
security breaches.
To top the hilarity off, after President Bush told then-
director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency
Michael Brown that he was "doing a heckuva job" when
thousands were stranded for weeks after Hurricane Ka-
trina devastated the Gulf Coast, the vice president shot a
man while quail hunting.
Sometimes, I think truth is stranger than fiction, and


e the truth of the Bush administra-
tion's comedic tragedy gave me col-
umn fodder for months.
Then Sarah Palin happened. Oh,
the humanity! Each week there was
something new and funny to write.
Matthew Christ There was the time when Palin com-
letters@alligator.org mented that she could see Russia
from her house. There was the time
when Palin accused candidate Ba-
rack Obama of palling around with terrorists, forgetting
that her own husband belonged to a political party that
had secession on its mind. There was the time when she
took the holier-than-thou abstinence position, forgetting
her 17-year-old daughter was pregnant. All of this played
out over the soundtrack of a reasonably powerful per-
son mangling the English language where even "Dubya"
could no longer recognize it.
Today, for the columnists, who every once in a while
like to diverge from serious subjects to comedic ones, hope
again lies on the horizon. Palin may have left office with 18
months left in her gubernatorial term, but surely her ambi-
tion won't keep her away from the national spotlight for
long. Amusement can still be found in the "birther move-
ment," where far right crazies keep coming out of the boo-
nies to challenge whether President Obama was born in
the United States. And even in the White House, the presi-
dent himself has provided comedic fodder by answering
a question last week about the arrest of Harvard profes-
sor Henry Gates after police thought he was breaking into
his own home. Within 30 seconds, Obama changed the
national dialogue from a debate on health care to a "teach-
able moment" on race.
Maybe the comedy reel will keep on rolling.

Letters to the Editor
Author's words distasteful
I was enjoying Jon Silman's ar-
ticle about country music recently
(Country music offers support, ad-
vice for all stages of life July 16).
The opening line was, "It is the
year of open-mindedness." Skip to
the first song he describes, however,
and you'll find, "He doesn't care
what she looks like, or if she's too
fat or old."
Excuse me? The seventh song
offers this description of drunken
antics: "We start bumming smokes,
hitting on fat chicks and sometimes
end up in bed next to someone who
should never come out in the day-
time." Nice open-mindedness, Jon.
Years ago when I first came to
UF, I saw stenciled signs in stair-
wells saying "NO FAT CHICKS!"
I was speechless. Then I saw a car
full of guys drive past a woman on
a bus bench, and they screamed the
same thing out the window as they
sped past. She was visibly devastat-
ed, and I was sickened.
I could stoop to the same level
and accuse these guys of covering
for some sort of sexual dysfunction
but that wouldn't be open-minded.
Jon states, "If we can get past our
initial prejudices, we may discover
something beautifully relevant."
Well, guess what, Jon? People
come in all sizes and shapes. Find
a more intelligent and humane way
to express yourself. You might just
meet someone nice.

Story reads like product plug
I was struck by Roberta Roberts'
article on Magic Hat Beers arriving
in Florida because it came across
as an advertisement for a bar in the
guise of a legitimate story.
After having been a beertender
for three years, I can tell you that
Magic Hat No. 9 is not new, it is not
rare (the Mellow Mushroom carries
it across most of the rest of the U.S.)
and by my tastes, isn't that great.
I'm not alone: It was rated as a
C- by the editors of BeerAdvocate
magazine earlier this year.
If Alligator readers want to en-
joy rare, quality beers, Stubbie Shirt
Pub, Alcove, Tim & Terry's, Gator
Beverage, Dorn's and The Labora-
tory are all havens for exploring the
world of good beer.
I'd suggest Bell's, Steelhead and
Oskar Blues beers, which are all
far superior to anything Magic Hat
makes. The new brewery in Tampa,
Cigar City, is making some amaz-
ing beers, as are St. Somewhere and
Holy Mackerel (both Florida-based
microbreweries).
It's very common for distributors
to test products in new markets be-
fore releasing them, and this is ex-
actly what Magic Hat's Florida dis-
tributor is doing. While Mother's is
lucky to have the beer now, it won't
be long before we'll be able to buy it
at Publix.
Let's see some real beer writing
in the pages of the Alligator.

Five-star Powell shines at Friday Night Lights camp


By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alligator.org

The Swamp was full of future
college football players Friday
night, but one athlete was the un-
questioned star of the night
All eyes were on Ronald Pow-
ell, the five-star defensive end
prospect from Moreno Valley (Ca-
lif.) Rancho Verde High, during
UF's annual Friday Night Lights
camp. Powell received a lot of at-
tention from Gators coaches, staff
and the media.
The rising high school senior
lined up and caught some pass-
es during receiving drills and
switched to the other side of the
ball as well, displaying his freak-
ish athleticism by lining up at
linebacker.
"They're talking about playing
me on both sides of the ball de-
fensive end and tight end," Pow-
ell said.
With his 6-foot-4, 230-pound
frame and ability to play on both
sides of the ball, Powell is part
Cornelius Ingram and part Carlos
Dunlap.
The only prospect on Florida
Field who went shirtless for the
camp, Powell was easily the most


physically impressive athlete in
attendance.
When asked what position he
preferred, he simply said, "I play
everywhere."
"What's not to like? They're
national champs."
Ronald Powell
Five-star HS football recruit

UF coach Urban Meyer also
spent a good portion of his Friday
night speaking with and watching
Powell, whom Rivals.com ranks
as the third-best player in the re-
cruiting class of 2010.
Around 9 p.m., the players
took a knee at midfield to watch
a highlight reel of the UF football
team's 2008 season, but Powell
stood right by Meyer's side at the
front of the group.
When the drills concluded and
the players were treated to a post-
camp meal, Powell was surround-
ed at all times by multiple UF
staff members, and two whisked
him away to a side room in The
Swamp after he left the field.
Powell has received scholar-
ship offers from UF as well as
Notre Dame, Tennessee, Auburn
and seven Pacific-10 Conference

Georgia coach, players


split on game's location


By MIKE McCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
m mccall@alligator.org

HOOVER, Ala. The future
home of the UF-UGA rivalry is still
in doubt, and Georgia coach Mark
Richt is finished giving his opinion
on the subject.
Richt made waves earlier this
year when he said playing the game
in Jacksonville where the Gators
have won 16 of the last 19 is not
a neutral atmosphere, citing distance
and weather as reasons.
At Southeastern Conference Me-
dia Days on Thursday, he took a
different track in hopes of avoiding
controversy.
"This is what I want to do: I want
to focus on winning that game,"
Richt said. "That's all I want to focus
on when it comes to that game."
When asked if that meant he
didn't care where the game is played,
Richt smiled and repeated himself.
"I really just want to focus on try-
ing to win that game. That's my goal
from here on in. That will be my pat
answer from here on in."
The current deal between the two
schools will expire following the
2010 game, and they have yet to sign
a new contract dictating where their
annual rivalry game will be played.
Richt favors a rotation between
neutral sites in Jacksonville and At-
lanta, something the Atlanta Sports
Council has tried to accomplish in
the past.
UF coach Urban Meyer wants to
keep the game in Jacksonville, but he
said he didn't know where the two
schools stood in terms of reaching a


deal.
"I just love that game," he said. "I
love the atmosphere. It's one of the
unique ones in college football."
The Bulldogs in attendance Thurs-
day were just as split on the issue as
the crowd in Jacksonville Municipal
Stadium.
Defensive tackle Jeff Owens, who
tailgated and watched the game as a
fan last year because of injury, says
he'd like to see a rotating schedule.
Quarterback Joe Cox wants to
keep the status quo.
"I really don't care because either
way, the stadium is going to be half
Sred and half blue-and-
orange," Cox said. "If
it's in Atlanta, I guess
people just want to
Football see more Georgia fans
outside the stadium.
It really doesn't matter once you get
inside because it's 50-50.
"I like playing in Florida because
it's pretty good weather, and it's a
fun game to go to."
As Cox said, crowd demographics
wouldn't change much between the
current site and the Georgia Dome,
but attendance would fall.
The dome held 75,892 for the SEC
Championship Game last year, while
84,649 attended the UF-Georgia
matchup in Jacksonville.
From the conference's perspec-
tive, the site of one of its biggest ri-
valry games is secondary.
"It's a great conference rivalry,
so the game itself is what matters,"
SEC commissioner Mike Slive said.
"Where it gets played is really com-
pletely in the hands of the institu-
tions."

Tebow steals spotlight at Media Days

By MIKE McCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alligator org

HOOVER, Ala. Just as he did last year at
Southeastern Conference Media Days, UF quar-
terback Tim Tebow answered questions from the
podium, a spot usually reserved for coaches.
Only Tebow used it more like a pulpit.
For 20 minutes, the UF signal caller discussed
topics ranging from his decision to stay for his se-
nior year to his religious beliefs.
But before anyone could fire off a question,
Tebow addressed the biggest mystery floating indicated Co
around the conference: Which coach left Tebow off
his preseason All-SEC First-Team ballot?
"I'm glad to be here. No, I do not know who did Available from Commercial Ne
not vote for me. I've gotten that question a lot," he
said.
Many questions in Hoover last
week focused on Tebow, as nearly
every player and coach was asked
about him.
Football UF coach Urban Meyer and Mis-
sissippi State's Dan Mullen were
asked to divulge Tebow's annoying habits, and
players were asked whether he's the toughest op-
ponent they have ever faced.
Needless to say, the attention just intensified
when Tebow arrived, with seemingly no topic off
limits.
During a radio interview Thursday, Tebow was
asked whether he's waiting until marriage to have
sex, to which he responded, "Yes, I am."
When another reporter couldn't find the right
words for a follow-up, Tebow interjected, "I think
you're stunned right now. You can't even ask a
question. ... I was ready for that question, but I
don't think y'all were."
Since his days at Nease High, Tebow has become
a very comfortable public speaker. His speech after
the loss to Mississippi last season quickly became
legend (another hot topic at Media Days), and he
looked at ease on Thursday. UF quarterback Tim Tebow speaks at the podium at the South-

All-SEC misvote just one example of Spurrier's unique personality


HOOVER, Ala.
Let's all take a minute and give thanks
for the gift of Steve Spurrier.
The Head Ball Coach put an end
to the "TebowGate" debacle Friday when
he admitted it was him who voted Ole Miss
quarterback Jevan Snead preseason All-SEC
First Team and in the process reminded us
why Media Days can be so much fun.
Spurrier didn't do it out of jealousy. He
didn't even do it because he thought Snead
was a better player than Tebow.
This was a crime of indifference.


"I've been do-
ing the preseason
ballots for 17
years. I've never
filled one out,"
Mike DiFerdinando Spurrier said.
Spurrier said
Beg to DiFer it was South
mdiferdinando@a Illigator.org i a o
Carolina Direc-
tor of Football
Operations Jamie Speronis who filled out
the ballot and that he signed off on the list
afterward.


"I can tell you two guys who were on
there: A.J. Green and Carlos Dunlap. I saw
those two guys were on there and said,
'Yeah, that's fine,'" Spurrier said.
From what we gathered at Media Days,
none of the coaches actually take the time to
fill these things out. Most of the leg work is
done by the sports information departments,
and that's just fine.
Preseason awards are largely meaning-
less.
"I don't know why we vote. I guess we
vote 'cause college football is still without a


playoff system," Spurrier said. "I really be-
lieve most coaches do not know a whole lot
about other teams, but we do vote."
He's right, of course. Most coaches don't
have time to evaluate every team in the
country.
In fact, Spurrier is probably right about
most things. The college game would be bet-
ter off if everyone would just follow his lead.
At the very least, we'd all have a lot more
fun.
This was my first encounter with the 01'

Snead transferred to Ole Miss after spending
his freshman year at Texas and posted more than
2,700 yards and 26 touchdowns through the air.
After getting a chance to talk with the junior
signal caller, I have decided to compile a list of
the top storylines Snead is directly connected to
for the upcoming season.
From No. 5 to 1, here's the list:

5. TENNESSEE The Vols new coach, Lane
Kiffin, has made a lot of noise this offseason, but
one move few can question is the hiring of for-
mer Rebels head coach Ed Orgeron as his associ-
ate head coach. When Snead decided to transfer
to Ole Miss from Texas, Orgeron was the Rebels'
coach. Snead sat out a season, and by the time
he was eligible to play last season, Houston Nutt
had replaced Coach O as the head coach.

4. TEXAS Texas is one of the best teams in
the nation and one of the favorites to meet UF
in the national championship this season. Long-
horns quarterback Colt McCoy beat out Snead
for the starting job when the two were freshmen
the year after Texas climbed to the top of the col-
lege football mountain.

Top 10 Burning Questions for 2009-10

How will women's lacrosse

be received in Gainesville? T "


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
sports@alligator.org

Come spring, there will be a
new sport on campus to capture
your attention.
UF students, we present...
women's lacrosse.
Yep, that's right, while the
sport was formally announced
years ago, we are now finally
207 days from the Gators' season
opener Feb. 20 against Jackson-
ville.
S This, of course,
begs the burning
question: How will
women's lacrosse
be received in
Gainesville?
The groundwork for the sport
(really, it's like building a com-
pletely new program, since it
needed a new stadium and there
was no men's equivalent already
on campus) has been laid since
June 14, 2006, when Athletics Di-
rector Jeremy Foley announced
the newest varsity sport was com-
ing to Gainesville.
The sport is certainly gain-
ing popularity nationwide. The
NCAA has sanctioned a collegiate
champion in women's lacrosse
since 1982, and the sport divided


itself into the traditional Division
I, II and III subdivisions in 2001.
Success has had a decidedly
northeast flavor, however. All
four Division I champions (Mary-
land, Princeton twice, Virginia
and Northwestern five times)
have come from that region of the
country, where lacrosse is similar
in popularity to sports like base-
ball, basketball and football in the
South.
There will be no easy transi-
tion for the Gators, as they are
joining the American Lacrosse
Conference, a seven-team league
containing fellow Southeastern
Conference schools Vanderbilt
and South Carolina as well as
five-time reigning national champ
Northwestern.
When UF takes the field for
its season opener in February -
there will likely be some exhibi-
tion matches in the fall, still to be
announced it will be 13 years
since the Gators had an inaugural
season (there was softball's debut
in 1997 and before that soccer in
1995).
And those two teams are evi-
dence that if you win early, the
fans will come. The soccer team
won a championship in its fourth
season and the softball team
earned an NCAA Tournament ap-

first new athletic program in 12 years when UF hosts Jacksonville on Feb. 20, 2010.


pearance in its second year.
With UF flourishing in so many
non-revenue sports, on-the-field
success usually determines what
program will get the added carry-
over support from the traditional
Gators football and men's basket-
ball fan.
On that end, surface knowl-
edge shows UF has done its home-
work.
Foley, known for his ability to
hire great up-and-coming coaches,


tapped National Lacrosse Hall of
Fame member Amanda O'Leary
to head the UF women's lacrosse
program. O'Leary came to UF af-
ter coaching at Yale for 14 years.
When she left, she ranked fifth
among active coaches in career
winning percentage (.714), and
Foley brought her to Gainesville
in June 2007 in order to give her
plenty of time to lay the ground-
work.
O'Leary's first recruiting class,


24 women strong, will make its
way onto campus in the fall and
includes seven players named to
the US Lacrosse High School All-
America Team as juniors.
So the Gators have a beautiful
stadium, a well-established coach
and a young but talented crop of
players.
Now, the question remains:
How long until the program finds
success, and more importantly,
how many people will care?

RECRUITING


Burton helps convince Brown to commit at FNL


By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alligator.org

Mack Brown didn't work out
or participate in any drills Friday
night, but he drew everyone's
attention just by saying a few
words.
Brown, a four-star running
back prospect from Lithonia (Ga.)
Martin Luther King High, became
the 16th oral commitment of the
Gators' 2010 recruiting class at
UF's fifth annual Friday Night
Lights camp.
Brown made his intentions
known to coach Urban Meyer and
the UF staff following the camp.
"I talked to Florida coaches
more than I talked to any other
coaches, so that was the biggest
thing for me," Brown said. "They
showed me a lot of stuff about
what they're going to do next year
with (UF quarterback John) Brant-
ley, so it'll be more of an I-forma-


tion team."
The 5-foot-11, 185-pound run-
ning back chose UF over Georgia,
a decision he thinks may earn him
a hard time from his friends who
root for the nearby Bulldogs.
According to Rivals.com,
Brown is the sixth-best running
back in the country and the No. 56
overall prospect. He said he an-
ticipates competing with other UF
running backs for playing time
and compared himself to Minne-
sota Vikings running back Adrian
Peterson, adding that he tries to
set the bar high.
"I work hard, and God blessed
me with a lot of talent," Brown
said. "I love competition."
Although Brown's verbal com-
mitment was the biggest story of
the night, more than 200 recruits
tried to make a name for them-
selves in The Swamp in front of
UF coaches and players.
"There were a lot of great ath-
letes out here," said UF 2010 oral


commit Trey Burton. "I think (Fri-
day) was a really good night for
recruiting."
Burton didn't participate in
any drills with the other players,
but he stuck to his role as unoffi-
cial recruiter, a job he has played
to perfection in helping piece to-
gether UF's 2010 recruiting class.
Burton, a quarterback out of
Venice High, met Brown at Friday
Night Lights last year, when Mey-
er expressed an interest in pursu-
ing the running back. Burton and
Brown became friends quickly,
and the two frequently send text
messages to each other.
"When Tebow was a senior in
high school, that's what he did -
he went and got Percy," Burton
said. "So it comes with the posi-
tion. Whether you like it or not,
you still have to do it. I think do-
ing this will definitely help us win,
and I'm the worst loser ever."
With UF's offense likely to
undergo many changes once Tim


Tebow graduates and Brantley
takes over at quarterback, Burton
thinks he and Brown will work
well together in the new scheme.
"He can do everything. He can
line up in the I he's just an all-
around running back," Burton
said. "I think we're going to have
an awesome option game when
he gets up here with he and I run-
ning it."
As Ben Hill Griffin Stadium's
impressive new video boards
showed highlight reels of UF's
2008 season a running score-
board of every game on one side
and the final boxscore of last sea-
son's UF-FSU game on the other
- Burton added that he was ready
to get out on the field and play.
But Meyer knew his combo
recruit/recruiter could be put to
better use, so he told him to work
on convincing some players to
orally commit to UF rather than
participate in passing drills. His
efforts paid off with Brown, who


Burton shadowed for much of the
night.
Already determined to become
a Gator and play for Meyer, Bur-
ton said he was aware of the ru-
mors that his possible future coach
might leave for Notre Dame.
"I knew he wasn't going any-
where," Burton said. "As soon
as that came out, I got an e-mail
(from Meyer) saying he wasn't
going anywhere, so I wasn't wor-
ried about that."

GLENN REMOVED FOR "U": Miami
oral commit Tavadis Glenn flashed
the "U" sign and was kicked out of
the camp for doing so. UF released
a statement saying Glenn left be-
cause of "potential safety issues
to other campers." For an exclu-
sive video of Glenn flashing the
sign, check out alligatorSports.org.

Oral commitments are non-bind-
ing until a national letter of intent is
signed on National Signing Day.

QB discusses fighting complacency


TEBOW from page 17

At times, the interview session bordered
on a sermon, with Tebow seeming to dis-
patch advice to those in the room about
how to avoid complacency.
"So many times in every aspect of life,
people are worried about getting by,"
Tebow said. "You're worried about, 'I can't
wait to get done with this so I have my free
time. I can't wait to get this interview done
with Tim Tebow so I can get it over with,
instead of worrying about how it can be the
best it can be.' In so many different ways,
that's people's mindset."
Tebow also discussed the positives and
negatives of his fame, including the never-
ending media and fan attention that he says
makes it difficult to do simple things like eat
at a restaurant in peace.
"But also you think about it, because of
that, because of the articles that y'all have


written and because of the articles that peo-
ple continue to write, it's not only backlash
from it, but there's also a lot of positive," he
said.

"So many times in every aspect
of life, people are worried about
getting by."
Tim Tebow
UF senior quarterback

"There have been a lot of people that
have been encouraged not to have an abor-
tion because they heard the story of my
mom, or they have been encouraged be-
cause they have heard me give my faith on
TV or in a report or something. You know
what, although there has been a backlash,
oh well. I'll deal with it if I have to."
And just as he ended his now-famous
postgame speech, Tebow left the podium in
Hoover with a "God bless."


KYLE, from page 17


loss and sparking the now-famous post-
game speech from Tebow. Long before
that, UF coach Urban Meyer recruited
Snead to come play quarterback for the
Gators even though he was in the same
class as Tebow. In "Meat Market," a
book about football recruiting by ESPN's
Bruce Feldman, Snead said that Meyer
told him Tebow was going to play line-
backer and that Snead would be able to
come in and play quarterback. Sneadwas
understandably skeptical and de-com-
mitted from UF after Tebow committed.

2. SECVS. BIG 12DEBATE-TheBig 12
has been gaining ground on the South-
eastern Conference for league suprema-
cy in recent years, and some experts feel
as though there is a new power. Snead is
able to offer an interesting perspective,


as he played in both conferences and
went on record in Hoover as saying he
believes the SEC is the best conference in
college football, in part due to the better
defenses. Also, Snead led Ole Miss to a
47-34 victory over Texas Tech in the Cot-
ton Bowl last season in one of two bowl
victories for the SEC against the Big 12.

1. THE HEISMAN TROPHY -Perhaps
no storyline is more enduring through-
out the season than the Heisman Tro-
phy race. Snead is getting most of the
preseason love as the fourth contestant
for this year's award, behind the three-
headed monster of Sam Bradford, Mc-
Coy and Tebow. Snead said he landed
at Ole Miss because he didn't feel UF
or Texas had a place for him. If Snead
makes it to New York as a Heisman fi-
nalist, he will be sharing the stage and
the evening with the two guys who
chased him out of town.

Top 10 Burning Questions for 2009-10

How will the softball team

respond to departures?


By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
sports@alligator.org
The UF softball team reached new
heights during the last two seasons.
Behind the arm of pitcher Stacey
Nelson, the Gators went a combined
133-10 in 2008 and 2009, reaching
the Women's College World Series
both years.
But Nelson has thrown her last
pitch as a Gator. Kim Waleszonia,
UF's all-time hits
Leader, won't be
back on the field in
2010. Same goes for
Ali Gardiner, Kris-
tina Hilberth and
the rest of the 2009
senior class.
That presents the question: How
will the softball team respond this
season after losing such a talented
group of seniors, especially Nelson?
Fortunately for UF coach Tim
Walton, the heart of his lineup will
return in 2010. Rising senior Franc-
esca Enea will likely enter the season
as one of the nation's top-rated hit-
ters, and she will be joined by Kelsey
Bruder, Megan Bush and Corrie
Brooks. Those four combined for 61
home runs and 237 RBI in 2009.
Add a healthy Tiffany DeFelice,


who was hampered by a wrist injury
during her sophomore year after an
outstanding freshman year, and the
Gators likely won't face many prob-
lems they can't hit their way out of.
In addition to the returning
power hitters, rising junior Aja Pac-
ulba made a smooth transition to
the leadoff spot, where Waleszonia
batted her first three years at UF.
Paculba is one of the Gators' most
versatile hitters, and her skill on the
basepaths will only improve.
Despite the talented veteran core,
Walton was forced by injuries to de-
velop some of his younger players.
Rising sophomores Alicia Sisco and
Michelle Moultrie saw time in the
outfield and at the plate last season,
and they will likely find their roles
significantly increased in 2010.
Although the majority of the line-
up is returning and the new players
gained experience in 2009, the team
will be reliant upon rising junior
Stephanie Brombacher in the circle
this season. She was statistically one
of the nation's best pitchers as a back-
up last year. Brombacher pushed
her undefeated career record to 42-0
with 22 wins last season. She put up
a 0.84 ERA and struck out 190 bat-
ters in 158.2 innings pitched.
But she will be the unquestioned
No. 1 in 2010, and that could poten-
