Worth





Repeating


By MIKE McCALL I ALLIGATOR STAFF WRITER
mmccall@alligator.org

Gators hope to reprise title run


have been reduced to a
yearlong drill.
There are months of
conditioning, followed by fall camp
and a grueling season.
Then, a whistle blows in Miami,
and it's time to rinse and repeat.
Basking in the glory of last sea-
son's BCS championship is not part
of the process, but there are plenty
of accolades floating around.
The defending champs return
most of their key players, including
a quarterback already hailed as one
of the game's greats and a coach rec-
ognized as the best in the business.
The Gators were picked as the
preseason No. 1 by every major col-
lege football magazine and received
58 of 60 first-place votes in the Asso-
ciated Press poll the highest total
ever but they still feel like there
are doubters.
There's something left to prove:
that they belong among the best
teams ever.
These Gators are hungry for
more than another trophy. They
want perfection.
"We want to be great," receiver
David Nelson said. "We want to
be known as one of the best, so we
want to be known as the team that
did it again. That's what we're try-
ing to prove. We want to prove to
the country that we can do it again.
A lot of people are ranking us No.
1, but they also have their doubts
that no team can do it again. Right
now, we are hungry to prove people
wrong."
After a summer trying to avoid
their own press clippings, taking
advice from a slew of big-time guest
speakers and fuming over past loss-
es, the day has arrived.
The quest for the best season in
school history starts now.

Friends in High Places
Despite the high expectations
inside and out of the locker room,
the company line throughout the
offseason was, "We just want to win


the Southeastern Conference." But
back then, Game 1 against Charles-
ton Southern was still a far-off date.
Now that kickoff has ceased to
be Sept. 5 and become Saturday, it's
more clear what this team is about.
As quarterback Tim Tebow dem-
onstrated in his speech following
the loss to Ole Miss last year, an un-
defeated season is a priority. So is
repeating.
To that end, coach Urban Meyer
brought in experts on the subject
during the offseason. Lou Holtz,
Tony Dungy and Mike Shanahan
were among the guest speakers in-
vited into the Florida locker room
- three coaches with experience
when it comes to defending cham-
pionships.
Holtz won a national title with
Notre Dame in 1988, but saw his bid
for a repeat stymied by Miami after
an 11-0 start. Dungy's Indianapolis
Colts also failed in an attempt to
repeat their 2006 Super Bowl win,
but Shanahan successfully coached
the Denver Broncos to back-to-back
titles in 1997-98.
And if that's not enough help,
there's a pretty
good example just
down the street
in UF basketball
coach Billy Dono-
van, who won con-
secutive champi-
Dungy onships in 2006-07
and will serve as
Meyer's blueprint for success.
"The way he managed it, espe-
cially when they hit a little skid in
the middle of the season, the way he
pulled that (2007) team back togeth-
er [was impressive]," Meyer said.
"I learned a lot. That was one of the
best basketball teams of all time."
Meyer picked Donovan's brain
during the offseason for tips to keep
his team focused, even showing the
same Tiger Woods interview that
Donovan showed his squad. In it,
Woods defines greatness as having
the ability to win again and again,
something Holtz was convinced


Andrew Stanfill / Alligator Staff
Linebackers Brandon Spikes (left) and Dustin Doe (32) hope to be kissing another crystal ball when the 2010 BCS National Championship Game rolls
around on Jan. 7 in Pasadena, Calif. The Gators are trying to become the first team to win back-to-back titles during the BCS era.


Florida could do after watching just
one practice on his visit.
"It's very difficult (to repeat),
but I think Florida is in a class by
themselves," said Holtz, currently
an analyst for ESPN. "Here's what
impressed me the
most. I didn't ex-
Spect to see this, but
I saw a group of
coaches so enthu-
siastic, players so
focused and work-
ing hard, it looked
Holtz like a team that
was out to prove
something. It's not just their talent
and leadership. You don't usually
see a veteran football team working
that hard."

Lessons Learned
The work ethic Holtz saw stems
partly from a chip on the players'
shoulders.
But unlike most teams, the Gators
aren't trying to overcome it. They've
seen what happens when it's gone.
After winning the 2006 national
title, Florida went 9-4 and lost to
Michigan in the Capital One Bowl.
"A lot of times, when you're as


successful as we've been through-
out our career, you get complacent,"
Nelson said. "That's what happened
two years ago. We thought we had
all the answers, and they showed us.
There are a lot of guys on this team
who were on that
2007 team, went
to the Capital One
Bowl and felt that
loss, so we don't
want that again.
We still carry that
loss, that pain we
Shanahan had against Michi-
gan in the Capital
One Bowl. We still have that grudge,
that sick feeling in our stomach."
That's the other thing about this
team: losses die hard.
All the highs of a national title
haven't wiped that loss to Michigan
away, and despite the turnaround
that ensued, stumbling against Ole
Miss is still a touchy subject.
"That loss is still frustrating to
everybody, although a lot of good
came from it," Tebow said. "That's
one of the good things about our
team, though, is how upset and mad
we get about something like that.
"We get pretty self-motivated

from things like that, and irritated,
and we still use that today in prac-
tice."
Reminding themselves of losses
and keeping a narrow watch on the
conference schedule are just tricks
to stay focused and avoid compla-
cency, the two biggest roadblocks
that Dungy, Shanahan and Holtz
pointed out to the team this sum-
mer.
The only on-field question about
the Gators is whether they can re-
place receivers Percy Harvin and
Louis Murphy.
With a thin group of wideouts,
none of whom are as proven as their
predecessors, it's a legitimate con-
cern.
But Florida has a trump card.
For the first time in 20 games,
Tebow is healthy.
For the final six contests in 2007,
Tebow took painkilling injections to
deal with his injured right shoulder,
and he did the same thing all last
season after re-injuring it in the sea-
son opener against Hawaii.
"He's 100 percent for the first
time in his career, which is scary,"
Nelson said. "You can see that extra
get-up that he has, and I can't wait
to see him on Saturday."


Similar Starts
If UF does manage an undefeat-
ed season, it wouldn't be the first in
school history.
In 1911, the Gators' first year
playing against big-name oppo-
nents, they went 5-0-1, tying South
Carolina.
This year will start just as that
one did, with Florida hosting a team
from Charleston. Then, it was The
Citadel, which UF topped before
defeating three other teams from the
state and crowning themselves "The
Champions of South Carolina."
Now, it's Charleston Southern,
and the Gators have their eyes on
much more. It's the start of a march
they hope ends with another crystal
ball.
The drill won't be over until the
S whistle blows in Pasadena.

Johnson urges



transparency


By CHELSEA KEENAN and
KATHRYN RANHORN
Alligator Writers
During Tuesday's Student
Senate meeting, Student Body
President Jordan Johnson was
first to sign a waiver granting
UF students access to his previ-
ously unavailable records that
were protected under the Family
Educational Rights and Privacy
Act, more commonly referred to
as FERPA.
FERPA, a federal law, pro-
tects students' educational re-
cords from being viewed by the
public.
Johnson encouraged senators
to sign the voluntary waiver,
which would allow items such as
voting records and recordings of
Senate meetings to be put online.
"This is a big deal," he said.
"We had a lot of people to go
through and research to do."
Although members from the


Progress Party and the Orange
and Blue Party said they are
pleased with Johnson's deci-
sions, they've progressed with
their own initiatives to promote
transparency.
"This is a big deal. We
had a lot of people to go
through and research to
do."
Jordan Johnson
Student Body President

"We've been releasing our
voting records on our Web site
since the very first date," said
Sen. Dave Schneider, Progress
Party leader.
Orange and Blue Party leader
Jonathan Ossip said signing the
waiver is a step in the right di-
rection but is not enough since
it does not include SG-related e-

Judge upholds


bar ordinance
By C.J. PRUNER
Alligator Writer
In a recent development of Gainesville's battle with the bottle, an
Alachua County judge upheld a city ordinance that attempts to curb
underage drinking.
The Underage Prohibition in Alcoholic Beverage Establishments
ordinance, which went into effect April 1, restricts
bars from admitting people under 21 after 9 p.m.
if the bars have exceeded a certain number of un-
derage drinking offenses. Venues with a capacity
of less than 201 can have five offenses, while venues
with a capacity of more than 201 can have 10.
Hearings began last month after local bar owner
Rob Zeller challenged the ordinance's constitution-
Roundtree ality. After hearing arguments from both sides,
Alachua County Circuit Judge Robert Roundtree
decided to uphold the law, according to Gainesville litigation attorney
Elizabeth Waratuke.
In a small victory for bar owners, the court struck out a clause that

City codes may pull


plug on 'Pool Bus'


By DAVID TINTNER
Alligator Contributing Writer

When a few college kids salvaged
a $400 school bus and turned it into
a pool, they thought they had struck
gold; but last Thursday, the City of
Gainesville Code Enforcement Divi-
sion asked them to remove the bus
from their property.
The students were cited for three
$250 violations, according to Ed
Dimuccio, investigator for the City
of Gainesville Code Enforcement
Division. The offenses included the
pool being too close to power lines
and the pool not meeting the stan-
dards for fencing and enclosure.
The owners of the bus, six room-
mates who live on the 1000 block of
Sixth Avenue, found the bus on a
Craigslist ad from a Baptist preacher
in Orange Heights last October. For
an additional $600, they got the reg-
istration, insurance and tag to make
it legal.
Originally, they used the bus
to drive to the UF-Georgia game
and tailgate. They also took it on a
weeklong camping trip, drove their
friends downtown on Halloween
and even occasionally dropped their
friends off at classes, said Giancarlo


Marogti, a fifth-year senior and part-
owner of the bus.
In an act of vandalism on St.
Patrick's Day, the bus' tires were
slashed and the windshield was
broken. Instead of repairing the
damage, the owners came up with a
different idea.
"We were walking to the pool
one day and just wished that we
didn't have to," said Adam Heaton,
a graduate student and another
owner of the bus.
They removed part of the roof,
took out the windows and turned it
into a swimming pool. They added
an entertainment center where the
roof remained.
"We bought a pool pump, fil-
ter and pool liner," Marogti said.
"It was up and running in about a
week."
The roommates enjoyed the pool
for more than a month before an in-
vestigator from code enforcement
came to them with a list of viola-
tions.
"We're willing to do anything to
make it legitimate to stay," Heaton
said, in hopes of making the bus
safe and acceptable under city laws.
Since the inspector's visit, the men
have drained the water from the

1000 block of Southwest Sixth Avenue. The bus owners are working to bring it up to code.


pool and plan to move the bus far-
ther away from the power lines.
"It's become a landmark of the
neighborhood," Heaton said. "Ev-
erybody loves it."
Even if the students find a way
to securely lock the back and front
doors, they would still be in viola-
tion of ordinances regarding swim-
ming pools, Dimuccio said.
"A child could get in it and no-


body would know," he said. "It's
becoming a safety hazard."
The division is waiting on a
maintenance report for the bus to
determine if it is safe to drive on
streets.
The bus is also more than 35 feet
long, too long to be parked at the
house even if registered as an RV,
according to Dimuccio.
"Their best bet is to find a place to


store it and then bring it back for less
than 72 hours to use it," Dimuccio
said. "I don't see any way they're
going to be able to keep it."
If they are allowed to keep the
bus, the owners said they plan on
fixing it up so that it can be driven to
campus on game days.
"It's been such a big part of our
college careers," Marogti said. "We
don't want to lose it."


South African prof. details evolution of photography


* HE IS VISITING FROM CAPE TOWN.

By SHEMUEL ARRINDELL
Alligator Contributing Writer

Michael Godby, a professor of art history
at the University of Cape Town in South Af-
rica, presented a lecture on the evolution of


the country's photography Thursday night.
Godby, who spoke as a part of the Ham
Eminent Scholar lecture series, said South
African photographers changed their styles
based on historical events like apartheid, pro-
tests, strikes and religious practices.
Now, more than 20 years later, photo-
graphs representing a more positive South
Africa are being displayed in small South Af-


rican galleries and museums, he said.
After the presentation, Tom Southall, the
Ham's photography curator, made a com-
parison to the Great Depression when he said
photos were taken "of the people, but not for
the people," adding the situation is improv-
ing.
Helen Safa, a retired UF professor of an-
thropology and Latin American studies, said


she doesn't believe art or photography is get-
ting more popular in South Africa.
Safa, who traveled to South Africa in 2001,
said the money in South Africa is spent on
items like cars, not art.
If South Africans are not willing to buy
and display their own art, the photographers
will continue to sell their work in American
and European galleries, she said.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Parties look to fill spots


By CAROLYN TILLO
Alligator Writer
Thursday marked the beginning of Stu-
dent Government elections when students
with intentions of joining a student political
party stopped by the Reitz Union.
The Unite Party attracted about 60 stu-
dents. About 20 students committed to the
Orange and Blue Party and about 15 commit-
ted to the Progress Party.
Orange and Blue Party Sen. Ben Cavataro
said candidates came into the interviews with
varying ideas, including fixing the elevators
in Beaty Towers and shortening the lines for
free printing.
"A lot of the ideas are motivated by real
student concerns, you know, what real peo-
ple are feeling," Cavataro said.
Freshman Michael Morales said he's lean-
ing toward the Orange and Blue Party.
"I definitely find that their policy of put-
ting the students before themselves is some-
thing I can agree with," he said.
Dave Schneider, Progress Party president,
said his party's goal this election season is to
bring SG from its third-floor office to the stu-


dents.
Sophomore Jeanna Lee said she was in-
terested in the Progress Party because it
embodies the idea that there is room for im-
provement in SG and encourages a diverse
platform.
"There's good students leading ev-
erywhere, not just Greek houses,
not just the dorms."
Jason Yoepp
Unite Party spokesman

Unite Party spokesman Jason Yoepp said
the party saw a great turnout, but he doesn't
want students to be discouraged from stop-
ping by today or Tuesday.
He said there are plenty of good students
out there, and he doesn't want them to be in-
timidated or think they don't have a shot.
"There's good students leading every-
where," he said. "Not just Greek houses, not
just the dorms."
Slating will continue today and Tuesday
from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m in Room 284 of the Reitz
Union.


Google exec gives $5M

for children's hospital


By ALISON SCHWARTZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

Good is finally coming from a lo-
cal family's nightmare.
Wednesday, less than two years
after Horst and Luisa Ferrero's
3-year-old son died from medical
error at UF's pediatric clinic, the Se-
bastian Ferrero Foundation received
a $5 million gift from Google's tech-
nology director, Craig Silverstein,
a Gainesville native who became
Google's first employee in 1998.
The money will go toward ad-
vancing the foundation's mission of
establishing a full-service children's
hospital in Gainesville.
"Growing up the child of two
doctors, I understand the important


role medical care plays in a com-
munity," Silverstein said in a press
release. "The more I hear about this
project and what it will bring to
Gainesville, the more excited I am
by it."
Deborah Peeples, executive di-
rector of the Sebastian
Local Ferrero Foundation,
News described Sebastian's
family as "deeply grat-
ified and excited" about the gift.
"They feel this is a wonderful
way to honor Sebastian," Peeples
said. "We want him to be remem-
bered as the little hero who brought
the community together to improve
the level of medical care available
in Gainesville to a full-service chil-
dren's hospital."

Group offers grants for local women's advocates


By KATHLEEN BIRKHIMER
Alligator Contributing Writer
A local women's advocacy group
is accepting applications for mini
grants for groups or individuals
who support Gainesville's women.
The Gainesville Commission on
the Status of Women will offer the


grants bi-annually, and $500 will be
distributed between up to three ad-
vocacy groups, individuals or busi-
nesses for their nonprofit programs.
According to GCOSW member
and UF student Megan Silbert, the
organization is committed to offer-
ing the grants for the next two years
and hopes the program will contin-


ue beyond that.
The online application asks for
information about the applicant's
mission, the project's
Local financial status and its
News impact on women and
girls in Gainesville.
About 20 contributors, includ-
ing a sub-committee of three judges,


helped to create the evaluation cri-
teria that will be used to judge the
entries, Silbert said.
The GCOSW was founded more
than 25 years ago to promoteequal-
ity for women, according to partici-
pant Jan Zak, who helped distribute
information about the mini grant via
the organization's e-group.


Zak stressed the effect of the
group's largest annual conference,
which she said "brings to the fore-
front violence [against women]."
She discussed other events,
including an amateur art exhibit
hosted in the Reitz Union featuring
artists who have survived violence
or trauma.

Editorial
With the second week under your belts, you're probably
feeling a little fatigued.
This is understandable. We at the Editorial Board feel your
pain, but would like to remind you that the acceptable period
for mourning is over fall is in full swing. Drop/Add is over.
So like a claustrophobic who made the poor decision to ride Ep-
cot's Mission: Space, you're locked in for the full ride, whether
you decide you like it or not (or bang against the door scream-
ing to be let out, ruining the ride for the rest of the people in
your capsule).
Bad memories.
And, if you've already made it through this heady introduc-
tion, it looks like you're also locked in for this week's edition
of...


Darts & Laurels

And now to point to someone who is having a better week
than you: our favorite (we only know one) former mullet-rock-
ing, hockey-playing impregnator Levi Johnston. We don't
know how much he got paid to write a tell-all on Sarah Palin
for Vanity Fair, but from the snippets we've seen from it about
late-night Taco Bell runs and reality TV marathons, it's mad
compelling.
However, for taking his 15 minutes of fame to a new high (or
low, whatever), we'd like to cast a hey-at-least-you-taught-us-
it's-possible-to-feel-sympathy-for-Sarah-Palin DART at Levi
Johnston. We understand that money can be tempting, but for
the love of all that is holy, think about your kid and her mother.
(Coming to newsstands Sept. 8.)
Someone else who's having a better week than you is reign-
ing table tennis champion Wang Hao. The 25-year-old was
banned from dating until national team officials finally set him
up with other Chinese table tennis player, Peng Luyang. We
wonder if all his training and skill cultivation wasn't an elabo-
rate ploy to get the government to set him up with a girl, but if
it was, more power to him for achieving his goals.
For going to the most extreme lengths to get a girl, ever, we'd
like to send a your-level-of-dedication-to-getting-laid-is-second-
only-to-Mario-in-Super-Mario-Bros. LAUREL to Peng Luyang.
Although, considering this is probably just China using him to
breed the ultimate ping-pong protege, Luyang might have been
better off skipping those years he threw away in a specialized
ping-pong academy and just applying for a VISA and a spot on
"The Pick-Up Artist." But hey, whatever works.
To throw some positivity into the mix, we'd like to send a
LAUREL to those involved in the new coalition to prevent re-
currences of the Tau Epsilon Phi and Pi Kappa Phi fraternity
hazing incidents. Hazing is bad in most cases. However, we do
wonder if the last case of hazing at UF was that bad. We think a
second coalition should be formed to promote Sigma Lambda
Gamma sorority's alleged "hazing" scenario, which involved
restrictions on Facebook, make-up and fast food. "Real" hazing,
though, is no good.
We already lauded SG last week for responding to student
outcry and re-instating The New York Times readership pro-
gram on campus. This time, however, we'd like to send a but-it-
only-took-you-90-letters-to-the-editor-and-constant-takeover-
of-the-opinions-pages-to-do-something DART at the Student
Government officials who sometimes treat this paper like it's
the now-defunct Juicy Campus.
We'll also send out a LAUREL to our readers who had to
put up with officials complain about complaints, or whatever
they were doing. And to think that things will only get worse
with SG elections on the horizon...
We appreciate getting The New York Times back, but we
also appreciate getting the last word.
That's all for this week. Enjoy watching Florida play some
school no one's ever heard of on Saturday. Go Gators?

Slating brings annoyance, fliers for all


f you don't have of headphones, I strongly suggest
that this week or next you invest in a pair.
You don't eve need to attach them to an iPod or
even portable CD player, and they don't even have to be
expensive; a standard $5 pair from Wal-Mart will do.
They only need to last the next five weeks or so.
I would also advise rerouting your daily walk to and
from classes: away from large public areas including,
but not limited to, Turlington Plaza, the Plaza of the
Americas and anywhere near Anderson and Matherly
halls. Ambushes may await you in other parts of cam-
pus. In this case, just steer clear of all bright blue, red
and orange shirts.
Taken together, these defensive measures should in-
sulate you from the barrage of fliers, political posturing
and free pencils that await you over the course of the
next four to five weeks.
Indeed, it is the most wonderful time of the year for
UF students as Student Government elections gear up.
For the uninitiated (that's you, freshmen), the next five
weeks will be more aggravating than anything you have
ever experienced.
Around every corner of campus, an SG flier or el-
evator speech awaits to ambush you between 8 a.m. to
5 p.m, including lunch breaks. It is almost impossible
to avoid this broadside of fake smiles and politicking,
but by taking the measures suggested above, you can
significantly increase the chance of you escaping this
ordeal unscathed.
To be fair, it does seem a bit hypocritical of me to be
complaining about how bothersome SG elections can be
when just last spring I was one of the army of orange,
blue and red waiting to greet you during your daily


Kyle Robisch
letters@alligator org


commute through campus, armed
with a plastic grin and a handful
of stickers.
However it seems that this elec-
tion is going to be particularly dirty
and bitterly contested, if the letters
and guest columns in the Alligator
and the speeches in Student Senate
are any indication of the months to


come.
I should also point out that my criticism is not lim-
ited to a single political party or grouping; every party
and member is and will be guilty of political pandering
to the students, myself most likely included.
But that certainly does not mean you have to blindly
accept it.
It certainlymay be important to you to vote and be
informed, and by all means please do so. However, the
glossy fliers and free pencils that will come to litter Tur-
lington Plaza do not aid in the political education pro-
cess.
Don't be afraid to do your own research and find out
for yourself about the parties' platforms and voting re-
cords.
So while this brown-nosing is to be expected in any
election at any level from SG to the United States pres-
idential election, it is also important to be able to cut
through what is B.S. and what is true.
But since that is becoming increasingly impossible in
SG elections, the better strategy may be to keep your
head down and ears covered.

Political bumper stickers are childish, show driver stupidity


If the eyes are the window to the soul,
then a bumper sticker is the portal to the
back of a moron's head.
I'm not referring to classic pieces of car
flair, such as "Where's the beef?," "Drive it
like you stole it" and the ever-popular "My
kid beat up your honor student." Gems like
these get straight to the point if they have
one. Asking tailgaters to locate their meat
won't elicit a nasty response. They'll prob-
ably snort a chuckle and continue happily
riding your ass while constantly re-reading
your lame automobile decorations.
Recently, however, I've noticed the once-
gleeful tradition of selecting the perfect
bumper sticker has devolved into pulling
punches at political opponents. Gator Na-
tion, this is a disaster. Why are we wasting
our cars' surface area arguing political agen-
das when we could be goading fellow trav-
elers into mashing the pedal to the metal?
We have Bill O'Reilly and Keith Olber-
mann on television, Rush Limbaugh and


National Public Radio in traffic and our
empty-headed neighbors and co-workers to
fill every other gap in our days. There is no
reason the exterior of our cars should argue
our points to people we've never met. Why
stir up trouble on the highway? Most of us
have obviously forgotten the all-too-true
warning sign donned by hundreds of 1991
Dodge Rams: "Keep honking, I'm reload-
ing."
I work a part-time job where I see hun-
dreds of bumper stickers daily. Sometimes I
laugh, but mostly I shake my head in either
disgust or confusion. Lately, I've been see-
ing hordes of shiny new anti-Barack Obama
bumper stickers, which makes sense be-
cause he's working from the office that can-
not escape criticism.
Some of my favorites: "So, how's that
hope and change working out for you?,"
"I'll keep my guns, freedom and money
... You can keep the 'change!'" and "Buck
Ofama." (OK, that last one has been done


Before, but I saw one
Chevy Equinox so en-
thusiastic it decided to
"buck" the president
twice).
On other vehicles, I
Adam Wynn see tailgates and bum-
letters@alligatororg pers wearing slightly
older, faded bumper
stickers. They say
inane things like "No more Nazis vote
Democrat," or "dubya dubya dubya dot liar
dot com." The surplus of NObama stick-
ers seems to be a petty attempt at revenge
on every motorist whose car spouted anti-
George W. Bush jargon through the better
part of last year.
The best anti-W sticker uses the ex-pres-
ident's middle initial to begin the phrase
"Worst president ever."
Cue Comic Book Guy from "The Simp-
sons."
I imagine such a creation just about max-


es out the intellectual capacity of someone
who has never heard of Herbert Hoover, the
"do-nothing" president who slid us into the
Great Depression.
Bush is out of office. Get rid of your stu-
pid, fruitless bumper sticker and go pray for
the servicemen in your family.
Obama is trudging through a dead-
weight legislative branch, but he still has
three years to go. Scrape the childish stick-
ers from your rear bumper because they
will look like crap in 2012 no matter how his
presidential term is remembered.
As for your cars, apologize for dress-
ing them up in all things ridiculous. They
probably appreciate your angry adhesives
as much as your grandma's Pomeranian
likes its Superman costume. If you insist on
pimping your ride with rear-end stickiness,
I suggest touting your kid's ability to wal-
lop other 12-year-olds.

He said there is a bill sponsored by the
Orange and Blue Party in the Judiciary Com-
mittee, a group in charge of choosing and ap-
proving bills that will be discussed in Senate
meetings, that would call for a more compre-
hensive FERPA waiver.
"The only reason you wouldn't want your
voting records to be available is because you're
not proud of what you've done," he said.
Johnson said records will eventually be on-
line. However, because this is a large structural
change to the Web site, not everything will be
available immediately.
Nury Hyre, an economics senior, said she
was shocked records weren't public already.
"This school promotes technology and stu-

she said. "Not having the voting records online

we all agree that the agency is getting what we are rec-

Unfortunately, she said, the requests for funding ex-

funding for nonprofits, and there is a growing amount
of need in our community for our social services," said
County Manager Randall Reid.


Among the agencies that received funding are
Big Brothers and Sisters of Mid-Florida, Bread of the
Mighty Food Bank, Children's Home Society, Elder-
Care of Alachua County, Epilepsy Foundation of Flor-
ida, Florida Organic Growers, St. Francis House, the
Hippodrome State Theatre, Planned Parenthood and
Peaceful Paths.
"It's a grueling process for everyone, but I am com-
pletely satisfied with the vote," Tragash said. "The fact
that it was unanimous that doesn't happen often -
means that the commission recognizes chronic poverty
as a problem."


Underage arrests down

ORDINANCE, from page 1

prohibits bars from using an "innocent owner" defense. The
defense allows owners to contest admission restrictions if they
can prove that there was no way to prevent underage drinking,
such as the use of fake IDs.
The UF Student Senate has spoken out against the ordinance,
claiming that it hurts businesses and prohibits() safe nightlife
engagements of the underage population of students."
UF Student Body President Jordan Johnson said the devel-
opment is a healthy compromise.
"This isn't an issue about one person having a drink at a bar.
It's about making sure that everyone is safe when they go
out," Johnson said.
Local Since the law took effect, there has been a de-
News crease in underage drinking arrests, according
to the Gainesville Police Department's Web site.
Offenses for bars with a capacity of more
than 201 have plummeted about 75 percent, while arrests
at bars with a capacity of less than 201 have seen about a 46
percent decrease.
Lt. Keith Kameg, GPD spokesman, attributed the encour-
aging statistics to the cooperative effort between bars and
police and "the legislation's teeth."
"We want to make sure that Gainesville is a vibrant, yet
safe, community," he said. "The bars have been doing a really
great job working with us to make sure that this works."
Joseph Gloger, a Gainesville bouncer, was surprised at how
seriously owners and police are working to address the issue
and warns potential underage patrons of the consequences.
"They aren't messing around with this," he said, pointing to
the number of cops who go into establishments looking for any
illegal activity. "It's just not worth the risk."

10, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2009


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alllgator org

Florida might be facing
lowly Charleston Southern
on Saturday, but the coach-
ing staff is still keeping the
Gators' starting lineups se-
cret.
Defensive coordinator
Charlie Strong said the battle
at safety between Will Hill
and returning starters Ah-
mad Black and Major Wright
remains too close to call.
Strong continued to refer to
all three of them as "starters"
on Thursday.
Offensive line is another
position yet to be solidified.

Gators open season in Daytona


UF coaches refuse


to name starters


By KELSIE HOECHERL
Alligator Writer

The Florida women's golf
team will tee off its season this
weekend in Daytona for the
Hooters Match Play Champion-
ship with a new coach and some
fresh new talent.
After 11 seasons as head coach
for the Gators, Jill Briles-Hinton
announced her resignation in
May, but UF was not without a
coach for long. Jan Dowling was
up for the challenge and named
head coach in June.
Dowling left her position as
an assistant coach at Duke to
head up the women's golf team
at UF.
Her experience as a college
and professional golfer will
prove helpful to the young Flor-
ida team.
"We all really like her," soph-
omore Evan Jensen said. "She
is very energetic and confident.


We're all really happy with
her."
Returning players Jessica
Yadloczky, Andrea Watts,
Marika Lendl and Jensen have
already faced off in intense in-
trasquad practice rounds with
freshmen Ni-
cole Boyett,
Mia Piccio, Me-
gan Pak, Ame-
lia Lewis and
Isabelle Lendl.
"We have
such a young
Dowling team and there
is a lot of com-
petition within our team, so I'm
really excited about the year,"
Jensen said.
The first qualifier of the year
kept Yadloczky, a junior, out of
the season's first tournament.
"We had a qualifier and we
have a very competitive team
this year. You have got to play
very well to make the lineup,"

Dowling said. "And unfortu-
nately, this year we'll have some
players who will stay home for a
tournament or two.
"It's all part of the grow-
ing process, and when you face
some adversity, you will get bet-
ter in the long run."
Despite the competition, the
women and their new coach are
showing signs of coming togeth-
er and growing, a key for a suc-
cessful season.
"They [the returners] help
with everything from the golf
game all the way down to the
academics and getting to know
the school," said Dowling. "Our
team has been great. They seem
to get along really well.
"The freshmen have a lot to
learn, not so much with their
golf game, but with being a stu-
dent-athlete at the University of
Florida. It's a huge asset to have
a group of upperclassmen who
are willing and helpful."


All set to start Saturday are
Maurkice Pouncey at center,
Mike Pouncey at right guard
and Marcus Gilbert at right
tackle.
Carl Johnson will also start,
but his position will be dictat-
,ed by who the

Football James Wilson
or left tackle
Matt Patchan.
"I talked to [offensive
coordinator and line coach
Steve Addazio], and he's not
going to announce," coach
Urban Meyer said Thursday.
"He says right now we have
six starters."

UFSOCCER

Gators start tough stretch after easy opening slate


By TYLER JETT
Alligator Writer
tjett@alligator org

So far this season, Becky Bur-
leigh's squad hasn't tipped its
hand.
The Gators have played three
games, and they've won all of them.
But those were better classified as
tune-ups, not measuring sticks.
Only one of the teams played in
last year's NCAA Championship
- Miami, a team that was bounced
in the first round.
When the Gators (3-0-0) take on
Indiana (3-0-0) today, that soft-op-
ponent trend will continue.
The Hoosiers were a below-.500
team last year, and although they
are unbeaten so far this season,
their victories have come against


teams from less-established confer-
ences like the Mid-American Con-
ference and the Missouri Valley
Conference.
But come Sunday, the Gators
will finally get a real test. Their
game against No. 8 UCLA (1-1-
1) will be the first of four straight
matchups against top-20 teams.
The Bruins are a powerhouse,
having won six straight Pacific-10
Conference titles. Last year's squad
made the NCAA semifinals before
losing to eventual national champi-
ons North Carolina 1-0.
UCLA has gotten off to a rough
start this year, getting trounced in a
season-opening rematch with No. 1
North Carolina 7-2, then tying No.
12 San Diego.
Keeper Katie Fraine said UF
does not see the Bruins' poor start


"Playing a challenging
schedule gets you to know
your team really well and
exposes your weakness-
es."
Becky Burleigh
UF soccer coach

as evidence of a down year.
The Gators expect a tough non-
conference schedule. Since 2004, the
team has played 18 games against
preseason top-25 teams before
Southeastern Conference matchups
began.
"Playing a challenging schedule
gets you to know your team really
well and exposes your weakness-
es," Burleigh said.


,


Burleigh said she schedules
tough opponents so her team can
prepare for SEC games, and Fraine
reiterated that point.
"If we play a bunch of wussy
teams before we go into our con-
ference, we're just going to get
our butts whooped (against SEC
teams)," she said.
Since 2004, the Gators are 42-
7-6 against SEC teams, while their
record in matchups with ranked
teams is a mediocre 7-7-1.
Most members of the team claim
their goal is to win the SEC cham-
pionship, but Burleigh's decision
to constantly flood UF's schedule
with top-tier opponents suggests
she is preparing the Gators for pos-
sible games in the later rounds of
the NCAA Championships.
During the next three weekends,

the Gators will take on three teams
that reached the national quarterfi-
nals last year.
Burleigh said the team's ap-
proach to a game is the same re-
gardless of the opponent's quality,
but some of her players don't share
that opinion.
"It's easier for a team to get
pumped for a UCLA or a Duke
rather than an FIU," Fraine said.
Other players said their moti-
vation during offseason workouts
came from thinking about ranked
teams.
"(Before the season begins), we
prepare a little more for the top-20
teams because we know they're go-
ing to be a greater challenge than
maybe some of the other teams,"
sophomore Lindsay Thompson
said.

The alligatorSports Brand Picks
Column is a long-standing tradition
at our newspaper, the beginnings of
which can be traced back through
generations of student sportswriters.
So naturally, we decided to shake
it up a little bit this semester.
We spit in the face of tradition.
No more interviews with lei shop
owners in Hawaii, Uga handlers in
Georgia or whiskey distillery manag-
ers in Tennessee.
From now on, we'll start out Picks
Column with what we love most -
arguing but we'll still end it with
some good, old-fashioned insults.
Each week, two of our writers will
debate one of the most highly contest-
ed games in this column, and to add
some legitimacy to our little opera-
tion, we've added five "professional"
Florida beat writers to our picks sec-
tion.
Oh, and this year we're picking
against the spread, because we're
men, and this is America.

ALABAMA WILL EASILY WIN BY
MORE THAN 6.5 POINTS VS. VIRGINIA
TECH BECAUSE... I'm not sure how
anyone could seriously consider pick-
ing Virginia Tech in this one.
The Hokies come from an inferior
conference, and Darrell Evans, their
star running back, will be on crutch-
es.
Sure, Alabama is breaking in start-
ers at quarterback and left tackle,
but wide receiver Julio Jones will
make their jobs easier. The 6-foot-4,
210-pound playmaker will take ad-
vantage of whichever 5-foot-11 cor-
nerback is covering him.
Also, Virginia Tech has never won
a game in the Georgia Dome, where
the game will be played.
Don't worry about the fact that the
Hokies have only played there once.
They still lost that game and will lose
big to Alabama. BOBBY CALLOVI

Tebow's farewell tour begins Saturday


* THE SENIOR QB HAS
SEVEN GAMES LEFT IN THE
SWAMP.

By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alllgatororg

Take a long, hard look at
Tim Tebow when he walks out
onto the field Saturday. He just
might be staring back.
Saturday marks the start of
the senior's farewell tour, and
the Heisman Trophy winner is
going to be soaking up every
minute of his last go-around.
"It's special," Tebow said.
"The most memorable part for
me is I wait until the end and I
get to see everyone run out (of
the tunnel). And then I hear the
roar. That's what makes it the
most special."
The praise hasn't stopped
since UF knocked off Oklahoma
to win the BCS National Cham-
pionship Game back on Jan. 8.
The No. 1 Gators have been
showered with accolades. They
racked up a historic 58 out of 60
votes in The Associated Press's
preseason poll. And No. 15 once
again tops the watch list for ev-
ery award under the sun.
Saturday's season opener
against Football Championship
Subdivision opponent Charles-
ton Southern should only fuel


Andrew Stanfill / Alligator Staff
Tim Tebow will start his third season opener for the Gators against Chalreston Southern. Team-
mates and coaches say the senior quarterback is healthy for the first time in his career.


the fire.
The Buccaneers, who were
7-5 last season and finished fifth
in the Big South Conference, are
more than 60-point underdogs.
"I think I would love to go
play another Miami or some-
thing that's a rivalry game
and intense and fun," Tebow
said. "But this is also a game
where we can work on things,


sharpen up, get ready, try to be
crisp and play. It's the first op-
portunity. You want to get that
under your belt and see what
you've got."
Charleston Southern fell to
Miami 52-7 in the 2008 season
opener.
There might not be much
drama in The Swamp on Satur-
day, but there are still plenty of


things for Gators fans to keep
an eye on.
Matt Patchan and James Wil-
son are fighting for a starting
job on the offensive line.
Jeff Demps was named the
starter at running back, but is
only narrowly holding off ad-
vances from Chris Rainey and
Emmanuel Moody.
SEE FOOT, PAGE 20


Florida's dominant talent demands a tougher schedule


he supposed best team in college foot-
ball, what many call one of the best
teams ever, is about to begin one of
the easiest schedules in the country.
I couldn't be more disappointed.
Really, Florida?
Charleston Southern, Troy, FIU and the
annual matchup with Florida State.
I realize there is no incentive for the
Gators to schedule a heavyweight non-con-
ference game. Schedules are made years in
advance.
Running undefeated through a soft slate
is rewarded in the current BCS system.
But UF could've done more. Just because
it could.
Just because it returns every defensive
starter and is solid on offense despite a lack
of depth at receiver.
You've got possibly the best college foot-


ball player of all time,
and the combined re-
cord of your non-con-
ference opponents is
29-21 (.580)?
It's a shame, be-
Phil Kegler cause Florida could
Phil on the Hill make a statement.
pkegler@alllgatororg To be the best, you
need swagger.
You need a take-on-all-comers attitude,
even without any outside incentive.
For me, scheduling is one of my favorite
aspects when I start a new dynasty in EA
Sports' NCAA Football video game. I strive
to get the computer to rate my strength of
schedule as an A or possibly even an A+.
Certainly, I use some suicidal moves to
get there scheduling several top-10 non-
conference opponents, including a few on


the road.
But in my mind, I'm usually playing
with a pretty good team, and I want the
challenge of feeling like I'm the best.
I want to be pushed week-in and week-
out.
The Gators could take a page from that
line of thinking and learn something from
their heated rival in Athens.
Georgia, ranked No. 13 in the preseason
polls, opens its season by playing at No. 9
Oklahoma State then comes home the next
week to immediately start its SEC schedule
against South Carolina.
Two weeks later, UGA hosts Arizona
State as the second half of a home-and-
home series (the Bulldogs won 27-10 in
Tempe, Ariz., in 2008). Georgia caps off its
non-conference schedule with its in-state

PICKS, from page 18


VIRGINIA TECH WILL OBVIOUSLY COVER THE
6.5-POINT SPREAD BECAUSE... Alabama hasn't defeat-
ed an ACC school to open a season since... one year
ago. OK, the Tide are the obvious favorite to win this
game, but I think the Hokies can keep it close enough
to cover the 6.5-point spread. VT plays solid defense
every year, commits to special teams and has a dy-
namic dual-threat quarterback named Tyrod Taylor.
Florida disposed of Alabama in last year's SEC
Championship Game using the same formula: tough
defense, a commitment to special teams and a dual-
threat quarterback whose initials are TT.
KYLE MAISTRI

Now, on to the picks!
Representing the Alligator, we have our five
sprightly young football writers:
Mike "I can sense even the smallest human suf-
fering" DiFerdinando, who will be trading in his Red
Bull and cereal for hand lotion and tissues when Zac
Robinson and his beloved Oklahoma State Cowboys
take on Georgia this weekend.
Bobby "I never have to worry about a DUI" Callo-
vi, who, at the age of 21 and the height of 5-foot-6, still
needs the rest of us to drive him around. He can drink
alcohol, but he's still a growth spurt away from being
allowed to sit in the front seat.
Phil "Go big, but mostly just go home" Kegler,
who admittedly drank nothing but Bud Light on his
weeklong trip to Vegas, where alcohol is free.
Mike "Draft to trade" McCall, who spitefully took
a second defense in our office fantasy NFL draft be-
cause he was outbid on David Garrard as his third
quarterback in a one-QB league.
Kyle "I finally made it past midnight" Maistri, who
recently broke his Joe DiMaggio-like streak of passing
out before the change of day during a party in which

liquor was prominently involved.
Representing the outside world that unfathomably
exists beyond the Alligator, we have our five aging
beat writers:
From the Palm Beach Post, welcome Ben "Back to
school" Volin, who couldn't stay away from college-
aged girls, so he enrolled in an MBA program.
From the Jacksonville Times-Union, welcome Mike
"I'm a man, I'm 39" DiRocco, who is the longest-ten-
ured beat writer in this column, and quite possibly the
western hemisphere.
From the Orlando Sentinel, welcome Jeremy
"Strictly business" Fowler, who was the only one not
to laugh after he asked Urban Meyer if Matt Patchan's
assessment of Lane Kiffin as a bozo was accurate.
From the Miami Herald, welcome Joe "Is a three-
piece too formal?" Goodman, who may not outreport
you, but he'll certainly outdress you.
And last and coincidentally least, from the
Gainesville Sun, welcome Ed "Drunk, equal-oppor-
tunity Casanova" Aschoff, who "apparently" made
out with three different girls of varying ethnicities the
other night.

rival, Georgia Tech.
Obviously rivalry games are hit-and-miss as to their
quality, but this year, the Bulldogs face a tough matchup
playing at the 15th-ranked Yellow Jackets, whose triple-
option offense ran all over the field last year, racking up
409 rushing yards in a 45-42 victory.
While Saturday's opener against Charleston Southern
gives Florida a chance to ease into the fall, receiver David
Nelson admits he wouldn't mind playing in a marquee
game early in the year.
"When you play a team the caliber of Oklahoma State's
from different conferences teams you don't ever get to
play but you get to see on TV it would be fun to play a
team like that every once in a while," Nelson said.
It would ease one problem trying to decide when to
call off the dogs. Last year, Meyer took heat for kicking a
late, meaningless field goal against Miami, a 26-3 win.
If it was up to Nelson, he would play the whole game
Saturday, and not because he has a desire to run up the
score on the Bucs.
When you're playing in one of your last seven games
inside The Swamp, wouldn't you like to play more than
a half?
There's a chance Nelson and plenty of other starters
won't see any fourth-quarter playing time in at least three
of the seven home games (Charleston Southern, Troy,
FIU).
The solution is simple.
Don't leave it to the analysts. Don't leave it to people
judging stats against subpar opponents.
Prove it where it should be proven.
Do it on the field.

Meyer: Backups are ready

FOOT, from page 18
Major Wright, Ahmad Black and Will Hill are locked in
a three-way competition for two starting spots at safety.
New offensive coordinator Steve Addazio will call
plays for the first time as he tries to replace Mississippi
State coach Dan Mullen. The second half will likely be-
long to John Brantley and a host of new faces.
"It will be a little easier to put (younger
S players) in (this year)," Meyer said. "Our
Q 'i ) first year, second year it was a little more
difficult to put guys in because you're go-
Football ing to put that thing in reverse. We can't let
that happen."
The Gators are 14 games, 56 quarters and
840 minutes away from the end of the 2009 football season
and a potential run at college football history.
Regardless of how the chips fall, there is at least one
guy who's going to enjoy every second of it.
"There are seven more opportunities to run out of that
tunnel," Tebow said. "I'm going to cherish every oppor-
tunity, every minute, every chance I get to be on that field
and play with those guys. I'm going to make it special and
leave everything out there."

UF VOLLEYBALL

Biggest test so far is familiar foe


By ANTHONY CHIANG
Alligator Writer
achiang@alllgatororg

It's been nine months since Stan-
ford eliminated Florida from the
NCAA Tournament, but it seems as
if the Gators have eliminated their
memories of that game.
Tonight, No. 5 UF (3-0) will have
a chance at redemption as it faces No.
11 Stanford (2-1) at 8 p.m. as part of
the Community Bankers Classic in
Stockton, Calif., and will face either
Pacific or San Jose State on Saturday
night, depending on the result of to-
night's match.
But the Gators seem to have for-
gotten about last season's loss and
are taking a different approach to
their first big test of the season.
"We haven't talked too much
about it," senior libero Elyse Cusack
said. "This isn't a revenge match or
anything like that; it's just a great
opportunity to play a great team like
Stanford."
Since their last meeting in the
round of 16 on Dec. 12, both teams


I(APLAN


have changed.
Two UF starters from that De-
cember game, middle blocker Kelsey
Bowers and setter Cindy Bathelt,
have graduated and transferred,
respectively. However, sophomore
middle blocker Cassandra Ander-
son and transfer setter Brynja Rod-
gers have helped
make up for the
losses at those po-
sitions.
Anderson is
currently leading
the team in blocks
with eight and
Cusack Rodgers is aver-
aging 21 assists
per match to help fill the void those
two left.
The Gators have also added a
year of experience that will especial-
ly help the five freshmen who were
part of last season's team.
"I think one thing that we lacked
last year was experience," Cusack
said. "We are starting to play more
together as a team because we have
played with each other for a year


now."
Sophomores Kelly Murphy, Col-
leen Ward and Kristy Jaeckel have
proven to be three of the team's top
players this year. All three players
have already notched at least one
double-double in their first three
games of the season.
"A lot of times, players make the
biggest strides between their fresh-
man and sophomore years," coach
Mary Wise said. "They are more
physical, they are hitting the ball
harder and they are jumping high-
er."
Meanwhile, Stanford seems to
have regressed since its last match
with the Gators.
The Cardinal saw two AVCA
First-Team All-Americans, Cynthia
Barboza and Foluke Akinradewo,
graduate. Both players were alter-
nates for the United States in the
2008 Olympics.
Those losses have been huge for
the Cardinal this year, as the team
has already been pushed to five sets
by LSU and fell in straight sets by
Notre Dame.

SEC TV deal steals spotlight


TV Deals for BCS Conferences


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligatororg

College football is finally back, and the South-
eastern Conference hopes to keep its reputation as
the nation's best league.
With two historic television deals signed in the
offseason, the 12 teams will have plenty of chances
to make their case from coast to coast.
The SEC signed 15-year contracts with ESPN
and CBS worth $2.25 billion and $825 million,
respectively during the offseason to showcase its
athletes nationwide.
Florida coach Urban Meyer likes the fact the
Gators will be seen in even more places this fall
but guards against overextending their recruiting
focus.
"Our job's not to go on a national level and re-
cruit," Meyer said. "Now we'll cherry Spick, and I
tell our guys: It better be a first-rounder for us to go
do that because there's plenty of great football play-
ers within five hours of our school.
"I do believe [the TV deals] will help, but what
I don't want to have happen is [national recruiting]
be our focus because now all of a sudden we're on
TV somewhere."
The CBS deal extends its current status as the
national broadcast network and will show one SEC
game per week at 3:30 p.m. on Saturdays.
But now one 12:30 p.m. game per week will be
shown on ESPN Regional Television, which is syn-
dicated to more than 66 million households in 75
different markets.
The so-called SEC Network will be ESPN's
third-largest "channel" from noon to 3:30 p.m. on
Saturday, according to a ESPN press release, avail-
able in more homes than ESPNEWS or ESPNU dur-


ing that block. There also will be a new SEC-focused
pregame show at noon with Rob Stone and Matt
Stinchcomb. This SEC Network will debut with
Western Kentucky-Tennessee on Saturday.
Of the league's 12 season openers, only one will
be carried only on in-state pay-per-view (Missouri
State-Arkansas). Nine will be carried on ABC or an
ESPN network, including the first game of the sea-
son Thursday night (South Carolina-N.C. State).
"Opening games are really different," Auburn
coach Gene Chizik said. "It's almost overkill be-
cause you've got so much film you've watched over
the summer and in the preseason. You've watched
about every game you can watch, which some-
times is a little bit too
OUTHAEN much."
Only four SEC
schools (South Caroli-
na, Georgia, Alabama,
CONFER E LSU) are facing an
opponent from a BCS
conference in the first week, but two of those feature
premier matchups between ranked teams No. 13
Georgia plays at No. 9 Oklahoma State on Saturday
at 3:30 p.m., while No. 5 Alabama plays No. 7 Vir-
ginia Tech in the Georgia Dome at 8 p.m.
Alabama coach Nick Saban said national expo-
sure was a big reason the Crimson Tide agreed to
play the Hokies in the neutral-site Chick-fil-A Col-
lege Kickoff. Last year, Alabama participated in the
same event, using a 34-10 upset over preseason No.
9 Clemson to make a statement en route to going
undefeated until the SEC Championship Game.
"I certainly think that last year our team prob-
