UF adjusts class policies to curb swine flu


By ASHLEY HORN
Alligator Contributing Writer


In an effort to prevent a swine
flu outbreak, UF will require an
e-Leaming site for every course to
encourage students who may have
the virus to stay home.
All instructors will be able to
access the e-Leaming site Monday,
according to a memo sent by An-
drew McCollough, UF's associate


provost for Internet technology.
By Tuesday, nine auditoriums
will be equipped with Mediasite,
a tool that will assist in lecture re-
cording.
According to UF spokesman
Steve Orlando, the additional e-
Learning use will not add any
costs to the university.
While the e-Learning require-
ment will allow students with the
virus to keep up with class, UF is


also taking measures to prevent

vading the Stu-
dent Body.
According to
Orlando, the Di-
vision of Hous-
ing has spent
about $3,500 on
BM hand sanitizer
for the campus.
There are also three dorm


rooms where the roommates of in-
fected students can live while the
sick student recovers, he said.
GatorWell, a division of the Stu-
dent Health Care Center, operates
tents in high traffic areas such as
the Reitz Union and Weimer Hall
to hand out free hand sanitizer and
flu prevention fliers.
Orlando said it all comes down
to individual responsibility.
"We ask that you do three


things," he said. "One is to cover
your mouth while you sneeze and
cough, two is to have good hygiene
and use hand sanitizer, and lastly,
if you're sick, stay home."
Orlando also said professors
are encouraged to be lenient with
attendance policies when it comes
to sick students.
Absence is one factor that eco-
nomics professor Mark Rush,

Dean may


face tough


decision

* SHE IS ONE OF SIX FINALISTS.

Kathleen Long, dean of UF's College of
Nursing, has been tapped as one of six final-
ists for the presidency of Georgia Southern
University, located in Statesboro, Ga.
Long will meet with university officials
this week for three days and take part in
campus and community forums, including
one today, according to a GSU press release.
Coincidentally, UF announced Wednes-
day that Long will oversee the area of Fac-
ulty Development in Academic Affairs be-
ginning Tuesday.
The position includes responsibility for
programs like the Teacher/Scholar of the
Year award and New Faculty Orientation,
according to a memo sent to UF officials.
Long has been dean of the nursing col-
lege since 1995.
E-mails sent Wednesday asking who
might replace Long were not returned.

Police will resume the search today for a
driver who was ejected into Paynes Prairie
Wednesday afternoon after a crash.
A Chevrolet truck traveling south on U.S.
441 collided with a Ford Explorer at about 4
p.m. near Paynes Prairie State Park, said Flori-
da Highway Patrol Cpl. Rodney Howard.
Howard said the truck struck the Explorer
from behind before swerving, breaking through
a guardrail and landing in the swamp below.
Workers from ANS Tree Service helped pull


the truck, which was submerged, out of the wa-
ter. Rescue divers searched for the Chevrolet's
driver until nightfall with no success.
The other driver, who has not been identi-
fied, was taken to a nearby hospital and is in
stable condition, Howard said.
Witness Peter Carolin, who notified author-
ities about the accident, believes that whoever
was in the truck never made it out. "The mud
definitely sucked him down," he said.

Houck also secretly made visits to her

who was hired in December 1992, has been
placed on administrative leave per UF proto-
col.

New GI bi

* THE BILL OFFERS MORE
BENEFITS THAN THE LAST.

By CAROLYN TILLO
Alligator Writer
ctillo@alligator org

Lauren Cook worked for her ed-
ucation. She couldn't afford college,
so she planned to return to school
after joining the Army.
Now a veteran and a mother,
Cook, 30, attends Santa Fe College
and plans to transfer to UF to pur-
sue a teaching career.
Cook, who works in the SFC
Office of Veterans Affairs, benefits
from the new Post-9/11 GI Bill, a
modification of the older and less
generous Montgomery GI Bill.
The Post-9/11 bill, effective Aug.
1, pays university tuition, fees and
living expenses for disabled veter-
ans and those who served at least 90
days beginning on or after Sept. 11,
according to the U.S. Department of
Veterans Affairs Web site.
This new bill could encourage
more veterans to attend public four-


year colleges like UF rather than
public two-year colleges, according
to a new study published by Alex-
andria Walton Radford, a research
associate with MPR Associates Inc.
Radford said the Montgomery
GI Bill only gives veterans about
$1,300 per month to cover living
expenses, books, tuition and fees.
This insufficient amount may have
encouraged veterans to attend com-
munity colleges or go to school part-
time rather than attending four-year
universities, she said.
But UF spokes-
National man Steve Orlando
News said UF has yet to
see an increase in
the number of veterans applying as
a result of the Post-9/11 GI Bill.
He said about 450 veterans at-
tend UF, and the university wel-
comes them because they offer pos-
itive examples for students.
Justin Levine, 26, president of
UF's Collegiate Veterans Society,
served 41/2 years in the Army and
is working on an undergraduate fi-
nance degree and a master's degree
in international business at UF.
He said the money offered by


the Post-9/11 GI Bill provides in-
centives for veterans to leave the
military and attend school.
However, Levine said UF's strict
admissions requirements limit the
number of veterans who apply and
attend. He said a high number of
veterans in Alachua County spend
two years at Santa Fe before attend-
ing UF because they leave the mili-
tary with zero credit hours.
"In the case of UF, I think it's
more dependent on the grades and
the academic discipline of the stu-
dent," he said.
Levine does not expect the num-
ber of veterans applying to UF to
increase for another two years be-
cause veterans may choose to spend
that time at Santa Fe.
Brian Sellers, who is completing
a work-study in the SFC Office of
Veterans Affairs, said 108 veterans
are using the new GI Bill at SFC.
For Cook, the bill has other ad-
vantages. The money it offers helps
fund things like tutoring services.
"It's just little factors, little fac-
tors like that they reimburse you for
that just makes or breaks someone's
success as a veteran," she said.

Documentary features struggles of disabled teen


By ROBERT HILSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

Dale Ginder is 7 years old. He is from
Gainesville. He loves his Gators.
And he is sick.
So his parents will be at the Phillips Cen-
ter at 7 p.m. Thursday, not for their son's fa-
vorite team, but to watch a movie that may
save his life.
Lelia Ginder, Dale's mother, and the Col-
lege of Public Health and Health Professions
present "Darius Goes West," the acclaimed
story of a teenager with Duchenne muscu-
lar dystrophy, a not-so-rare genetic disorder
that strips the male body of dystrophin, a
structural protein needed to function.
The heart and lungs both muscles, both
deprived race each other to see which will
give out first.
Local According to Parent Project
News Muscular Dystrophy, another
20,000 boys like Dale and Dari-
us are diagnosed with the disease each year.
This means, each year, roughly double
this number of parents find that they stand a
good chance of outliving their sons.
The disease progresses with speed and
menace. By 7, scar tissue replaces muscle. By
9, walking requires assistance. By 14, breath-
ing requires assistance.
Most die in their 20s. Some die older.
Some die younger.
For now, DMD kills. Always.
The documentary, winner of more than
25 film festival awards, focuses on Darius
Weems' first trip away from home, a cross-
country attempt to get his wheelchair on
MTV's "Pimp My Ride."
At the end of the film, Weems will take
the stage with his travel partners and adopt-
ed family, the film's cast and crew.
Weems turns 20 on Sept. 27. He has out-
lived his brother, who died of DMD, by


Darius Weems, left, and Logan Smalley pose on a beach in Panama City, Fla.


more than a year.
Accordingly, each campus screening
doubles as a celebration.
UF cheerleaders, Albert and Alberta and
Gators broadcaster Mick Hubert will at-
tend.
The event raises awareness and promotes
"One Year. One Million DVDs," a campaign
that generates $17 for DMD research for ev-
ery DVD sold.
The film has sold about 26,000 copies,
according to Logan Smalley, director and
editor of "Darius Goes West." Through ex-
tensive campus touring, the crew has raised
$1.6 million and logged over 100,000 miles
since September 2008.


Smalley said research is exploding, and
numerous human clinical trials show great
promise.
"We're extremely hopeful and optimistic
that a treatment or a cure for DMD is on the
horizon," he wrote in an e-mail.
The screening, part of "Darius at UF," is
free and open to the public, and the Ginders
urge everyone to come.
Lelia Ginder said when she took her son
to the pediatrician, the nurse in the office
knew right away of his condition.
"I said, 'You must be mistaken.' Of
course, we were shocked and not believing
it for a while," she said.
There is no cure, only piles of underfund-


ed research.
Inside the Starbucks on Archer Road,
Dale Ginder's picture hangs on a bulletin
board above canisters of milk, no amount of
which can make him stronger.
His healthy face and radiant blue eyes
don't tell that DMD can enlarge the heart,
only that Dale's is very big.
"He is still in the exact same body he was
in before he was diagnosed," Ginder said.
"His experience of life has not changed. But
it changed for us."
But there are optimists, like Josh Winheld,
who was diagnosed with DMD at 4.
"When I get up everyday, it seems like a
good day," he said.
Winheld lives a long wayfrom Gainesville,
yet he is like Dale. He is 31 years old. He is
from Philadelphia. He loves his Phillies.
Winheld says he's hopeful for the child.
Realizing that "nothing will happen the next
day" brings freedom.
"You have life ahead of you," he said.
"You just have to go out and live it, because
if you keep worrying about what's happen-
ing down the road, you'll forget what's hap-
pening right now."
He is what Dale can grow up to be -
alive, but more than that.
Winheld is an author, a speaker, an in-
spiration for the kind of event that will take
place at the Phillips Center.
He also blogs about his day-to-day expe-
riences, chronicling both the ups and downs
of life with applesauce limbs.
March 4: Birthday time. Winheld hangs
with the Philadelphia 76ers.
Aug. 1: Hospital run. An internal defi-
brillator sends 18 separate bolts of lightning
surging through his chest.
"I thought there was a distinct possibil-
ity that I would be blogging no more," he
wrote.
These are the kinds of trials that Dale will
face.

Board chairman takes seat

There won't be any tailgating.
There won't be anyone scalping
tickets. There won't even be alco-
hol, much less drunk fans playing
beer pong along University Av-
enue with ESPN blaring from a TV

When the Board of Trustees
gathers today, there won't be any
of that.
Instead of 90,000 screaming
fans watching 22 sweaty athletes,
there might be a total of 50 people
watching 13 conservatively dressed
board members discussing some of
the biggest issues facing the univer-
sity.
Budget cuts. Tuition hikes. It's
what they do. And as UF's highest
governing body, when the board
talks, people listen.
Now, after a three-month hia-
tus, the board will be led by a new
chairman W.A. "Mac" McGriff
III, a private investor from Jack-


sonville who has been on the board
since 2001.
McGriff, 65, said he never imag-
ined when he was taking classes at
UF in the 1960s that he would one
day end up as head of UF's most
powerful body.
"I was thinking about getting
out of the business school and get-
ting a job," he said. "I had a wife
and a kid."
McGriff, who
graduated with
a bachelor's de-
gree in business
administration
in 1969, was
born and raised
MGriff in Gainesville.
"I've been a
Gator all my life," he said.
He has three children and eight
grandchildren, all living in Jack-
sonville. He splits most of his time
between Jacksonville and a 1,500-
acre farm he co-owns in Quitman,
Ga., a town of about 5,000 on the
southern edge of the state.
"We've got dogs and horses and


land that we've groomed up for
quail hunting," he said.
Mcgriff, who's been president
of the Alliance Mortgage Co. and
the Florida Mortgage Bankers As-
sociation of Florida, also serves on
the Shands HealthCare and Uni-
versity Athletic Association boards
of directors.
He's been a registered Republi-
can since age 18 and donated $2,300
to John McCain's 2008 presidential
campaign.
Not surprisingly, he said UF's
budget issues will be the most dif-
ficult thing the trustees will deal
with this year. UF still hasn't cut
about $16 million of the $42.2 mil-
lion budget cut announced in May.
"Any of us that have ever been
in business have been through this
same crap," he said. "And it's not
fun. It's not fun."
At today's meeting, there are
few action items, but the board's
committees will discuss issues like
H1N1 swine flu and the merger of
UF's Counseling Center and the
Student Mental Health Services.


$3.5K spent on sanitizer
PLAN, from page 1
whose class is recorded and posted online, has taken into con-

"Every year, there is a flu virus, and so far none have im-
pacted my class," Rush said. "My concern about H1N1 is that
it might turn out to be significantly more contagious then the
typical flu, in which case there is a significant possibility of it
affecting UF classes."
Rush believes UF will do its best to combat the virus.
"I am hoping and praying that the H1N1 won't turn out to
be more fatal than the typical flu," he said.
Populations most susceptible to the virus include but are
not limited to universities, schools and
UF health care personnel. According to the
Administration Centers for Disease Control, 20 to 40
percent of these populations may con-
tract the H1N1 virus.
Dr. Phillip Barkley, director of student health at UF, has sim-
ple guidelines for all students feeling flulike symptoms.
"Stay at least six feet away from other people, and don't go
to the dining hall," Barkley said. "Have someone bring you
some food."
Barkley also recommended taking Tylenol and staying home
for 24 hours after fever goes away.

Editorial


Still Split

President's speech fails

to unite parties

If President Obama's Wednesday night speech does not
manage to turn Republican members of Congress on to
major health care reform, it will be a huge political failure
and a huge disappointment.
The speech, which marked Obama's second time appear-
ing before a full Congress since his inauguration, called for
a compromise between Democrats who support a public-op-
tion health care plan and Republicans who support creating
either a nonprofit health care cooperative or no reform at all.
The speech was also his time to address a sharply divided
American public.
However, what he could say to Congress was limited.
In his attempt to unite the Democratic and Republican
parties and refrain from launching any more attacks that
would deepen the fissure between the two, Obama could
only emphasize his desire for a public option and invite
Republicans to contribute their ideas. He could not call out
Republican fear-mongering without couching it in politically
correct rhetoric.
Point by point, Obama addressed the misconceptions of
many Americans that were perpetuated by pundits and Re-
publicans like Sarah Palin. He laughed at the idea of "death
panels" and reiterated that his plan would not insure illegal
immigrants or fund abortions. He asked Republicans bla-
tantly to stop misrepresenting the bill as a government take-
over of health care.
However, we think the American public should be aware
of something that Obama could never bring up to his op-
ponents in Congress. Even though Obama noted how some
members of Congress used Americans' confusion over health
care as way to create fear and gain political clout, he couldn't
fully illustrate their hypocrisy.
Article 31 of the Iraqi Constitution, drafted by the Bush
administration, calls for guaranteed health care for Iraqi citi-
zens.
Now, the same plan that was drafted by the GOP and
shoved onto another country under the guise of "freedom" is
being denounced as socialism in the United States.
The cost of implementing freedom, or at least carrying out
Operation Enduring Freedom, has reached almost $900 bil-
lion, according to the Congressional Research Service. The
cost of Obama's proposed health-care reform has been esti-
mated at about that amount over the next decade.
In essence, the United States has spent the taxpayer mon-
ey it would require to overhaul the health care system to
create a government, complete with a health care system, in
another country.
Obama will have a hard time convincing Republican
members of Congress to change their minds about health
care when their positions are already so steeped in fallacious
thinking. In his speech, Obama told congressmen: "If you
misrepresent what's in the plan, we will call you out."
We wish that Obama reminded Republicans that they
voted to implement universal health care in Iraq. We wish he
could remind them that they did it in the name of democracy,
not socialism. And we wish that he could rebut the Repub-
lican response, which just went on to call Obama's plan a
government takeover of the health-care system and seemed
to completely ignore the preceding one-hour speech.
But then again, we aren't cool-headed enough to be presi-
dent.
Obama's speech addressed the concerns of the people,
appropriately called out Republican fear-mongerers and di-
rectly tied the vote to a moral obligation to constituents.
We just hope it was enough.

Health care debate ignores zombies


In a few years, Sarah Palin will be a hot forty-some-
thing with her own little media empire. The thing
we may remember most about Sarah Smile, though,
could be the way she hijacked the multifaceted debate
about end-of-life care and turned the whole thing into a
screaming match about government "death panels."
Conjecture and hearsay are excellent ammo for radio
rebels and Internet trolls, but now is the time for a criti-
cal examination of the real policies that will shape the
way each one of us lives and dies. Now is the time for
some frank, honest talk about zombies.
Palin looks to the uninitiated observer like a simple-
ton spouting off the talking points of the insurance and
pharmaceutical lobbies, but her vague comments about
the regulation of health care are not simply misinforma-
tion. Even though insurance companies operate as de-
facto death panels and make hundreds of decisions every
day that regulate care for the privately insured, those of
us united with Sarah Palin yearn for something better.
The only Americans truly fit to serve on a death panel
are those who have already died, as they clearly possess
first-hand knowledge about failed health care and the
end of life. Sarah Palin is obviously setting the table for
zombies to become gatekeepers of health care.
A savvy politician, Palin has never once mentioned
anything even remotely connected to zombies. However,
she has never publicly denied that she has a stake in the
potentially lucrative zombie lobby. Nor has Palin ever
stated her opposition to zombies receiving subsidized
health care.
Zombies, because they are technically dead, may be
the ideal candidates for inclusion into the health-care
system. Their high threshold for pain and inability to
communicate effectively seem to preclude a large major-


ity of medical malpractice lawsuits,
thereby rendering the debate over
tort reform a moot point.
Zombified Americans eat less
than their living counterparts do,
and expensive machines regulat-
Tommy Maple ing breathing and the function of
letters@alligatororg various organs would be frivo-
lous in a zombie hospital. Zom-
bies would mainly visit a hospital to a) get brains or b)
have their limbs re-attached. Certainly, Sarah Palin knew
these built-in advantages of zombies in health care when
she first bandied about the idea of a government death
panel.
Zombie studies is a growing research field at many
top universities, and a group of four professors in Can-
ada who calculated the damage of a potential zombie
outbreak actually got their study published in a peer-re-
viewed journal. While a rampaging virus infected these
hypothetical zombies, recent stem-cell technology actu-
ally uses dead stem cells to create living organs. We are
going to have zombies, be it by science or by accident
- and we must plan for this extra burden on our health
care system.
All matter of serious talk will now commence about
health care in America, and it will be terribly boring.
Many people will use statistics in an egregious manner,
and they will be at least partially correct.
However, all of this productive governance will likely
spoil the growing debate about zombies, death panels and
health care. Sarah Palin, zombie nation turns its creepy
undead gaze to you. Keep fighting the good fight.

Letters to the Editor
Food prices exploit students
Zach Mayo's column in Tues-
day's Alligator, "UF should keep
cheap food options," should set off
a firestorm of protests and lead to
the canning of whoever is respon-
sible for these exploitive food pric-
es. There is no reason for the prices
they gouge from students at UF, ex-
cept greed.
Pollo Tropical is the example
closest to my heart. I have eaten at
the Pollo Tropical at The Florida
State University. The prices there
are cheap. I can get a half-chicken
value meal with a drink for about
$6. UF charges me $10.81.
Further, FSU completely rebuilt
their dining hall to accommodate
Pollo Tropical and Hardee's yet
that cost is not passed on to con-
sumers.
If FSU can renovate their dining
hall for Pollo Tropical and sell the
food at prices that are as cheap as,
or cheaper than, stores in Miami,
why is UF lagging behind? Why is
UF worse, greedier and eviler than
FSU?
And yes, I would consider over-
charging for that delicious chicken
evil.

Cheeburger not Cheep
I just have to write about Chee-
burger Cheeburger at UF.
I have been there three times and
all three times there have been prob-
lems. My first time, I tried to order
waffles. Guess what? They don't
make waffles, but they are on the
menu. The second time, for lunch, I
ordered a hamburger. I had to wait
15 minutes because they were wait-
ing on fries.
Guess what? I didn't order fries.
The orders in front of mine had
fries, and they could only make four
burgers at a time. So everybody af-
ter them had to wait even if they
did not have fries. My third time, I
tried to order a salad, and they tried
to charge me $12.79 for one salad.
The salad did not even have meat
on it.
If anybody at Gator Dining reads
this, please either fix the problems

"Twilight" inspires new readers
In regards to the "Twilight" arti-
cle, I agree that the series has no lit-
erary value. But then again, I have
heard no one in my daily travels
claiming that it is of literary merit.
To attack something that isn't
even claimed to be "literary" seems
like too much wasted effort to me.
I read the books when I was a


freshman here, and I thought they
were very entertaining. That was
the goal, right?
They had the same effect on
me that "Harry Potter" did, to be
perfectly honest, mainly because
I didn't think "Harry Potter" was
high-quality writing either. And al-
though "Wuthering Heights" may
be great writing, when was the last
time anyone lost themselves in that
book?
If anything, reading "Twilight"
has inspired my friends to read
more, even to read books of "liter-
ary value."
So, out of all the things to choose
that is making the world worse, you
chose to attack a book? Have we ex-
hausted the need to talk about cur-
rent events that actually affect our
lives?
Apparently, people reading has
an extremely negative effect on
our society. Heaven forbid people
stare at a book and not a television
screen.
I would encourage people to
keep reading, but also to branch out
and not become too obsessed.
Dana Connell
3LS



Books do not need to be literary
I picked up "Twilight" because
my roommates told me that I'd love
it and I wouldn't be able to put it
down, not because I was expecting
the next great American novel or
anything of the sort.
While I don't know if "Twilight"
has any literary value (in whatever
sense of the phrase you mean, that
is), I do know that I've never heard
anyone claiming that it does.
So what if high school students
of the future never end up ana-
lyzing examples of conflict in the
books and underlining metaphors
describing Edward's appearance as
akin to David?
And for that matter, "Harry Pot-
ter" isn't scheduled to reach the
classroom any time soon, either.
It's still highly entertaining when
I want to lose myself in a fictional
story.
While Edward has some appeal-
ing characteristics, including his
looks and his propensity to look out
for Bella, I'm not deluding myself
into leaving my window unlocked
hoping my knight in sparkling skin
will climb in and watch me mumble
his name in my dreams.
Maybe if you're so concerned
about your sister and her friends,
you should just remind her that all
who drive Volvos do not sparkle
and then let her and the rest of the
world enjoy an entertaining fic-
tional series about a charming vam-
pire and the girl who's in love with
him.

Bobby K collection empowers women, shows passion


By REBEKAH GEIER
avenue writer


Breaking up has never looked so damn
good.
After local fashion designer Bobby Kelley,
or Bobby K, 26, ended a four-year relation-
ship with his significant other, he realized
he'd much rather stitch up a dress than a
broken heart.
Kelley channeled his creativity into coor-
dinating a fashion show that will be the fi-
nale on Friday to Gainesville Fashion Week,
a four-day celebration of fashion and art, and
he is about to leave this town breathless.
"My creativity imitates my life," Kelley
said. "When I started goingthrough this dark
time, I had no way of expressing myself. Yeah
sure, I can go see a therapist or talk to my
friends, but people are biased and it is hard
to talk to people the way you want to be in-
terpreted."
So Bobby K gave himself his own therapy
and did what he knows best, which is design-
ing clothing to show people what he went


through and how he got out on top.
Kelley's ex-lover ended the relationship in
a state void of emotion, and left Kelley feel-
ingjust the opposite.
"Every human being knows the feeling
of communicating with someone that can't
communicate back," he said. "And in that in-
stant, the person you are talkingto is subhu-
man, not human but a robot."
His show is appropriately titled "I'm In
Love With a Robot," and he is not afraid to
prove a point. In fact, that is the point.
Kelley wants his pieces to give women a
sense of strength and independence, which
will support his theme of empowerment.
"It is important for a woman to realize
that (she is) strong enough to take control of
situations and almost say, 'Fuck you, I'm in
charge'," Kelley said.
The show will be set up to replicate the
stages of a relationship. Kelley broke down
his collection into four parts.
The first section is the romance. Models
will glide down the runway wearing fuchsia
tie-dyed fabrics smothered in ruffles in order


to represent that innocent stage of love.
The second section is where things start
to get "rough," symbolized by acid-washed
blacks and whites with structured pieces
that are very 1980s.

"It's important for a woman to realize
that (she is) strong enough to take
control of situations and almost say,
'Fuck you, I'm in charge."'
BOBBY KELLEY
fashion designer



Kelley's third section is what he calls his
"Wear to Work or Ready to Wear" collection,
which consists of more formal pieces, such
as skirts and tweed dresses with black cum-
merbunds. He interlaced purple satins to
make it feel "grown up" and to represent the
part of a relationship that takes work.
The fourth section is "The Robot," and
it is anything but lifeless. Imagine a fierce


model in a jet-black fur jacket over a black
one-piece fabric bikini with boots reaching
up to her thighs.
The complete experience will be no trip to
the movies.
"I want people to feel like they are at
MGM," Kelley says. "I want people to experi-
ence the clothing."
The presentation will be darker and edgi-
er than anything Kelley has done. He hopes
that people see the translation between his
shows and real-life situations.
Spectators can anticipate a night of pas-
sion, surprises and models in cages dancing
to the sounds of a violin with the help of their
professional pole-dancing classes.
"Gainesville needs a shot of adrenaline,"
Kelley said. "When people see this, for them
it is going to be shock, like, 'This really ex-
ists and goes on here?' Yes it really, really
does."
And for anyone that can't handle the thrill:
"Don't worry, I'll be handing out Depends at
the door," he jokes.

Up shows real life


By MARGARET GRECO
avenue writer

Just so you know, "Up" is a
play based on the life and fam-
ily of a man who tied balloons
to a lawn chair and ended up
16,000 feet in the air, not a
stage adaptation of the 2009
Disney-Pixar cartoon with the
same name. As long as you
know this, you probably won't
be confused for the entire first
act by the lack of old men, lit-
tle boys and flying houses. Not
that I was. I can just imagine
the confusion it might cause.
At times, "Up" is like a less
annoying version of "Juno."
There's a 16-year-old pregnant
girl who wears quirky, look-at-
me-I'm-an-individual clothes
(that's right, she rocks the
skirt and pants combo) and
her socially awkward male
counterpart. But there is actu-
al dialogue between the char-
acters, not just pseudo-witty
"hip" banter.
But "Up" is more than its
teenage characters. It's about
real life, and that's why I like
it.
The small, balloon-lined
stage has a yellow, four-seated
kitchen table to represent the
Griffin's home, and on the oth-
er half of the stage is the red
and gold armchair that is the
home of Maria (the pregnant
girl). Through its set's simplic-
ity, "Up" shows the life of Wal-
ter Griffin, the man who went
up. And with the audience sur-
rounding the stage on three


sides, it's easy to understand
how trapped and empty Griffin
feels after actualizing his wild-
est dream.
The play also tells the story
of an average American fam-
ily's day-to-day life. Walter (Tod
Zimmerman) captures the
awkwardness that comes with
being the father of a teenager,
and his son Mikey (Dylan Kam-
merer) experiences all the
things you wish you could for-
get about being in high school
and living at home: The girl you
like leaves town, leaving just
a note and an empty house
behind, your dad can't find a
job (or just doesn't want to),
your parents won't stop fight-
ingand sometimes peoplejust
steal your shit.
Maria (Jennifer Smith), a
mysterious, French-speaking,
unwed teen mother, reminds
me of the girls I wasn't allowed
to have sleepovers with in el-
ementary school. Though get-
ting kicked out of the house
by her drunk mother may be a
reason to excuse her from her
consistent shadiness, I'm not
sure if I like her or if her ac-
tions are justified.
"Up" won't give you any
answers, but it will make you
think. Even if you don't like
plays, there are a few hilarious
that's-what-she said moments
in itforyou. Try if you can catch
this one: "I love the way it feels
in your mouth." Hint: it's in the
first act.
"Up" will be at the Hippo-
drome through Sept. 27. Stu-
dent tickets are $12.


Tailgating countdown to kickoff


By JON SILMAN
avenue writer


It is not difficult to describe the palpable excitement of
a Gators game day here in Gainesville. Imagine the day
you were born and the first time you looked into your moth-
er's eyes. The true and immediate comfort. The sense of
belonging. Game day is like that, but with more orange.
People who do not usually mix are at arms
length to lend a helping hand, pick up a fall-
en comrade and lead a thousand-man cheer.
With such a massive celebration, Gators everywhere were
partaking in the revelry with delightful abandon in myriads
of ways. Where were you?

One could blissfully ignore the sorry state of the econ-
omy at the UF Bookstore. Gator gear was selling out faster
than Private Butz sold out to Lt. Aldo Raine in "Inglourious
Basterds." The No. 1 selling item in the store? According
to employee Brett Estenoz, 20, it's the coveted No. 15 jer-
sey.
4 hours to kickoff-The "Pool-bus" House
After some caffeine intake, I headed over to a place
I know has some excitement. The infamous "pool-bus"
crew are hanging out with, as usual, a harem of scantily-
clad girls, and they're playing their own particular brand
of beer pong called "beam to the face." These mid-20's,
ex-frat boys are wild, but welcoming. Due to recent zon-
ing complications, the bus is only back for a "daytime ren-
dezvous," and theytell me adamantly and repeatedly they
plan to move it tomorrow. The inside of the pool-bus house
is carpeted with women's underwear and beer bottles. In-
side, the living room is adorned with the classic deer head,
a stripper pole and the obligatory flat screen. Picture "Ani-
mal House" with more tattoos and less clothes.
3 hours to kickoff Norman Hall
The field in front of Norman has been transformed into
a used car lot, and Brian Lott, 23, is its salesman. Clad in
an orange jacket, blue tie and blue pants that he bought
special-order from China, he's ready to party. Bleary-eyed,
middle-aged couples sit next to their inflatable Gators and
watch ESPN under the comfortable shade of their gazebos
while sipping Coronas. These are professional tailgaters,
but I want more.


2 hours 10 minutes to kickoff Flavet field
After serious consideration, I decide to crash the Sigma
Alpha Epsilon (lion frat) party. They have a live band that
I can hear from the field, where families are roasting hot
dogs and playing an impromptu pickup dodgeball game.
A man I can only imagine as "Uncle Diego" has obviously
had a few too many and is way too into the game. He's
scaringthe kids.
2 hours to kickoff The Lion Frat
You would think it would be harder to sneak into a frat
party, but I enter unnoticed. This place has a huge open
courtyard with balconies dotting the walls like a fancy ho-
tel. Moms and girls are everywhere, and everyone is large-
ly ignoringthe band and its sexy brunette singer. Two open
bars and the quote of the century: "Don't shoot your meat
man! It'sSatur umm... I mean Game Day!" I could get used
to this, but I duck out of there before someone notices me
and I get beat up.
1 hour 30 minutes to kickoff -
Student Ghetto
I'm looking for the craziest party
in Gainesville. Two blocks behind St.
Augustine Catholic Church, I find it.
There are six college-aged hooligans
jumping up and down on the roof of a
black Chevy Z-71. It has a keg in the back and more than
50 people are crowded around it chanting, "Orange! Blue!
Orange! Blue!" My two companions do keg stands while
we sing them happy birthday, and we all become blurry,
fast friends.
30 minutes to kickoff O'Connell Center
The O'Connell center is the Magic Kingdom of Gator
Country. Urban Meyer is Walt Disney and Tebow is... you
get the point. Crawling with activity on the outside, the in-
side has become a reprieve for weary travelers looking for
respite from the heat.
15 minutes to kickoff Sad Epilogue
Having personallyfeltthe gripping excitement, but with-
out a press pass or ticket, I pray for a miracle. After various
failed attempts tryingto buytickets, I give up and decide to
take a romantic ride home in the Gainesville equivalent of
a horse and carriage, the bike trailer. As the sun sets and
the breeze whispers at my neck, the sound of the roaring
crowd fades into the dusk.


PostSecret creator inspires


By MEAGAN MCGONE
avenue writer

Dylan Kammerer (Mikey) and Jennifer Smith (Maria) perform a scene from
the play "Up" at the Hippodrome, launching the theatre's 37th season


Can you keep a secret? Well, Frank Warren can.
"I'm starting rabbinical school and I love bacon!"
"I'm 25, and I've never been kissed. It's not that I
don't want to... It's just that no one else does."
"I had not one, but two abortions. I've never felt
guilty!"
These are just a few of the secrets that travel from
all over the world and wind up in his mailbox in Ger-
mantown, Md. Warren, creator of an ongoing art proj-
ect called PostSecret, sifts through more than a thou-
sand secrets per week that are artistically displayed
on postcards and anonymously sent to him. He then
selects some to show in PostSecret's blog, books and
exhibits. He has received more than 250,000 post-
cards from all over the world since the project started
in November of 2004.
Warren said he believes there are two types of se-
crets: ones we hide from other people and ones we
hide from ourselves. His inspiration to start PostSecret
came from a secret he hid from himself.
On Tuesday, Warren will reveal this secret to those
who attend the PostSecret event at the Phillips Center
for the Performing Arts. He will also share images that
were banned from his four PostSecret books, reveal
inspirational stories behind PostSecret, and let audi-
ence members have a chance to tell their secrets too.
Nicole Keimer, an intern for PostSecret who has
been working with Warren for more than two years,


said that PostSecret has made an incredible impact
on her life. She used to be conservative and narrow-
minded, but reading thousands of secrets for the proj-
ect has made her more understanding of humanity,
especially the more socially unaccepted side of it.
"Often, when I meet people, I wonder what their
secret is, and I think of some of the most depressing
secrets I have seen. I have a bit more compassion and
patience with people as a result, knowing that we all
have our secrets," Keimer said.
PostSecret doesn't only serve as an outlet for peo-
ple to admit their deepest secrets. It also gives people
the courage to take action after releasing their bur-
dens.
Keimer said that one example of PostSe-
On the cret's effect gives her chills. After attending
a PostSecret event, a woman came home
and put Warren's book on the table. When
her daughter saw it, the woman explained that it is a
book full of secrets. After a while, the daughter asked
the mother if she could reveal one of her own secrets.
She confessed that her father had been molesting her,
and the mother immediately left her husband.
"It is such a great story about how inspiring Post-
Secret can be, and how it can really open up for the
possibility to share what may never have been shared
otherwise," Keimer said.
Warren didn't expect to touch so many people when
creating the art project more than four years ago, and
he doesn't set limits to where PostSecret will take off
in the future.

Pop culture updates


By ALEX ORLANDO
avenue writer

You might have had fun this past
weekend, yelling Asher Roth's "I Love
College" at your buddies across the
beer pong table, but it was no such
party for "Harry Potter" star Joshua
Herdman.
Herdman, who plays the Slytherin
bully Gregory Goyle, was caught red-
eyed and red-handed, smoking a
joint big enough to rival the famous
Cheech and Chong stogie from "Up in
Smoke."
But this isn't the first "Harry Pot-
head" to emerge from the cast. Jamie
Waylett, who plays Vincent Crabbe,
pleaded guilty about a month ago to
growing pot in his bedroom.
What kind of potion requires that
kind of herb? And, more importantly,
what happened to the clean-cut,
bright-eyed and adventuresome group
of young wizards who most of us un-
derclassmen grew up watching

***

Chris Brown, R&B star and celeb-
rity ass-kicker, appeared on Larry King
Live a few weeks ago for the first time
since beating his former girlfriend,
Rihanna.
In the interview on CNN, Brown
assured King of his nonviolent ten-


dencies as he sat accompanied by
his mother and lawyer. Real gangster,
dude.
When he was asked if he remem-
bered doing it, he replied, "I don't. It's
like it's crazy to me."
First of all, what an intelligent way
to talk on national television...not.
Second, what kind of drugs do you
have to take to not remember beating
your young, hot celebrity girlfriend to a
pulp?
I'm sure she remembers it quite
vividly.

***

What's the latest thing that nerds
and toddlers have in common? Well
they'll both be looking to Disney for
their entertainment needs.
Last week, Disney bought Mar-
vel Entertainment for $4 billion. That
means all your old favorites like Spi-
der-Man and X-Men are now techni-
cally playing bitch to, you guessed it,
Mickey Mouse.
Picture the Hulk bringing coffee to
Mickey in the office or Goofy as the
newest addition to the Fantastic Four.
Doesn't that make you cringe?
But really, if I see Donald fighting
crime alongside Spider-Man in the-
aters next summer, I'm goingto cry.
This kind of crap would never hap-
pen in Justice League.


Role-playing fulfills


By BRANDT WILLIAMS
avenue writer

A good friend of mine was recently
in need of a "sexy librarian" outfit for
a costume party and requested my
expertise in locating the appropriately
slut-tastic attire. After some shopping,
I ensured that my friend was sexed up
in a button-down blouse, tight-fitting
pencil skirt, yellow Calvin Klein glass-
es, six-inch black heels and a neon
blue corset. Weeks later I discovered
that her supposed costume party was
actually a party for two to indulge the
fantasies of her nerdy boyfriend.
Welcome to the world of role-
playing. If you're anything like me,
college life is a barrage of theme
parties in which scantily clad peers
flock to apartments and clubs. Girls
sport devil-red cocktail dresses acces-
sorized with a pair of horns, and bend
over while a boy decked out in preppy
Catholic school attire spanks their
ass with a wooden ruler. Well-versed
in the art of getting dressed up and
pretending to be somebody else, we
don't realize our kinky desires are let
out of the house along with our under-
dressed selves.
While some are sure to be turned
off by deviant behavior like role-play-
ing, they shouldn't be.
One of its advantages is that it al-
lows couples an opportunityto reinvig-
orate an otherwise monotonous love
life by inviting a sense of adventure
and mystique into the bedroom. Can
you imagine your partner playing the
role of a secret spy, burglar, fireman,
sex slave or doctor who wants you to
open up wide and check your tonsils?
Hell, even "Friends" got creative when


Rachel dressed as Princess Leia for
an eager Ross.
Some people insist they cannot un-
derstand the attraction of role-playing
because they don't want to view their
significant other in a radically different
light. In this case, not unlike when en-
gaging in threesomes, it's best to role-
play with someone to whom you aren't
committed.
And though Halloween and themed
parties have groomed college stu-
dents with a keen eye for costumed
fornication, role-playing isn't limited
to skanky outfits. Over rolls of sushi, I
had previously discussed the concept
of role-playing with my friend Ethan
(names have been
changed to protect
the promiscuous).
Ethan laughed
and said he had
engaged in role-
playing before,
though his experi-
ence was decidedly less dressed-up.
He recounted a story in which he met
and brought home a 30-something-
year-old cougar. What followed was an
incestuous game in which the woman
acted the role of stepmother, and
Ethan the role of her 20-year-old step-
son. Clothing was replaced with show-
ering together, an inspection of the
"son's" physical health, and pleads of
"don't tell your father, he'll be home in
an hour."
Is such a scenario a little too hard-
core? Perhaps. Yet, role-playing is
about adopting a specific personality
and character. It can be light and coy,
or brazen and edgy. Regardless, it's
about tapping into a fetish and sexual-
ly exploring it. Everyone has a fantasy.
What's yours?


Man



versus



beast

By ERIK VOSS
avenue writer

Classic "man versus beast"
tales feature bears or sharks.
Mine features a cat named Mon-
key.
Left behind by a cat-breeding
former neighbor, the tom was
a frequent visitor to our house.
Starving for affection, Monkey
would squeeze through ajar
doors and surprise my father in
the bathroom.
"Someone get this damn
cat out of here so I can wipe my
ass!" he would shout.
These intrusions were es-
pecially unwelcome to our own
house cat, Rajah. Her valiant
attempts to defend the home-
land only yielded nasty scars
and missing patches of fur. Con-
cerned for my cat's safety and
my father's rectal hygiene, I de-
cided to intervene.
Scaring Monkey was coun-
terproductive he'd just hide
under beds. Giving him the cold
shoulder was equally useless -
he'd just climb up on it. When I
(jokingly) suggested euthanasia,
Rajah, covered in gauze like an
assault victim on the witness
stand, seemed delighted with
the prospect of lethal injection.
Finding new owners proved
futile, and I couldn'tturn Monkey
over to those "death panel" ani-
mal shelters.
The humanitarian thingto do,
I decided, was to relocate Mon-
key to a new neighborhood.
When I tried stuffing Monkey
in Rajah's cardboard veterinar-
ian box, he sensed the trap,
hissed, scratched my hands,
and bolted.
Later, wearing protective
oven mitts, I lured Monkey in by
speaking gently, tossed him in
the box, loaded it in the back of
my Jeep, and peeled out.
My heart beat frantically as
I sped down the highway. While
Monkey pawed at the box's air
holes in attempt to escape, I
visualized the next morning's
front page: My perplexed mug
shot dangling from the head-
line, "Kitty-napper caught red-
pawed." I stopped in a charming
neighborhood only to discover a
small hole clawed in the side of
the box. No Monkey.
Terrified, I turned forward
and saw the cat perched on the
dashboard, hissing inches from
my face. Within seconds I was
halfway down the street, wonder-
ing if cats could drive stick.
But when I returned, Monkey
was gone.
Although Rajah and myfather
are now content, the guilt still
haunts me. The beast is gone,
but somehow, he won.

AROUND THE LEAGUE

Mullen gearing up for SEC opener

By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@allgator org

Last year's Mississippi State-Aubumrn match-
up garnered plenty of national headlines but
not for good reasons.
The Tigers edged the Bulldogs 3-2 on Sept.
13, 2008, with an Auburn 35-yard field goal and
Mississippi State safety the only scoring plays.
Now they're set to square off at Auburn
on Saturday as both teams open their South-
eastern Conference schedule with new head
coaches.
Auburn hired Gene Chizik, and Mississippi
State tapped former Florida offensive coordi-
nator Dan Mullen to head the program.
Mullen remembers watching last year's
Tigers-Bulldogs match-up because the Gators
had a bye weekend.
S, "Any game that's that close like that you
py Materlove," Mullen said. "Even though as an offen-
sive coach, you say, 'Boy what opportunities
I C ~are there.' Mississippi State had opportunities
ynIcaed Content to win, couldn't take advantage."
Mullen and Chizik said they haven't used

cause so much has changed.
"I don't put any stock into that," Chizik
said. "That was last year, and for both Missis-
sippi State and Auburn, we've both moved on.
It's a new year, new people, new everything."
Mullen said he was more than impressed
with the atmosphere in Starkville, Miss., dur-
ing the Bulldogs' 45-7 win over Jackson State
in the season opener.
"It was more than what I expected," Mullen
said. "Getting off the buses for the Dog Walk
was unbelievable. Just to see the masses of peo-
ple turning out and the support we had, just
the atmosphere we had third-largest crowd
in school history to support the team. Our guys
came out and played really hard.

No-huddle key to


Florida's fortunes


Phil Kegler
Phil on the Hill
pkegler@alllgatororg


T e Gators' new no-
huddle offense could
win them the national
championship.
You see, offenses are
like relationships. Each
can run on chemistry for
a while, but if you go too
long without spicing things
up, a stale feeling will creep
in. We all know how that


ends.
Coach Urban Meyer talked all about Oklaho-
ma's no-huddle offense since the Gators started
preparing for the Sooners in the BCS National
Championship.
I didn't really believe him.
There has been plenty of Meyer's "ideas" that
haven't ever panned out probably because
the coaches thought about it before deciding it
wouldn't really help the Gators.
This new "Banzai" package filled with up-
tempo, no-huddle formations seems to be for
real, and it's one of the best moves Florida could
have made.
New wrinkles to the UF offense have paid
plenty of dividends in the past.
In 2006, there was Tim Tebow garnering Su-
perman fame by converting every short-yardage
situation.
In 2008, there was the explosion of the fresh-
men running back duo Jeff Demps and Chris
Rainey.
Notice any year missing? Yeah, 2007 a 9-4
record for a team that had a bad defense and a
lack of running backs.
It's all about matchups and creating mis-
matches.
We'll never know, but the idea of Florida run-
ning two tight end sets with Aaron Hernandez
and Cornelius Ingram should've scared defen-

UF coach Urban Meyer said he is taking
precautions to prevent the spread of the swine
flu among his team.
"I'm scared to death of it," Meyer said.
Brandon Hicks missed practice Wednes-


day due to dehydration and needed TVs to
give him fluids. Freshman offensive lineman
Nick Alajajian has lost 10 pounds because of
the flu, according to Meyer

BLACK OK WITH ROTATION: Safety Ahmad
Black was replaced in the starting lineup last
Saturday by sophomore Will Hill, but said
that he is comfortable splitting time in the
secondary.
"A lot of us have to get used to it," Black
said. "Coming out of high school we were all


great players, probably the best player on the
team. Now, coming to college, we have to split
time with other great players.
It will all work out."
Black, who led the nation
in interceptions in 2008 with
Football seven, rotated with Hill and
Major Wright against Charles-
ton Southern.

INJURY UPDATE: Linebacker Brendan Beal
will be out a few more weeks with a neck in-


jury.
"It's non-surgical. It's a disc issue that they
seem pretty confident about," Meyer said.
Receiver Carl Moore and comer Jeremy
Brown are both still out with back injuries, and
linebacker Jelani Jenkins is doubtful for Satur-
day's game against Troy with an ankle injury.
Defensive coordinator Charlie Strong said
that defensive end Jermaine Cunningham
missed Saturday's game against Charleston
Southern because of a twisted ankle but that
he is probable to play against Troy.

UF FOOTBALL

Hines emerges as possible option at wide receiver


By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Staff Writer
kmalstrl@alllgator org

When it comes to playing time,
one player's setback is another
player's opportunity.
With news of freshman wide
receiver Andre Debose's season-
ending hamstring surgery, there
are suddenly a lot more snaps to
go around.
Redshirt freshmen T.J. Law-
rence and Frankie Hammond Jr.,
were thought to be the favorites
to provide depth at the position,
but Omarius Hines, also a redshirt
freshman, has come on strong dur-


ing the last week.
"He came out of nowhere.
There was zero plan for him," Flor-
ida coach Urban Meyer said. "We
have Thursday races on kickoffs
where we actually race our kick-
off team down the field. It's where
some guys around here got noticed
all the way back to Reggie Nelson
and Dorian Munroe. (Hines) is
fast, and he's a good guy. He'll see
more and more opportunities."
Meyer noticed the 6-foot, 204
pound receiver just in time to work
him into the game plan for Charles-
ton Southern on Saturday.
Hines responded by connect-
ing with backup quarterback John


"I know someday it's going
to be our turn to play."
Omarius Hines
UF redshirt freshman wideout

Brantley for three catches and 31
yards in the second half against
the Buccaneers. Only senior Riley
Cooper and junior tight end Aaron
Hernandez hauled in more passes
than Hines, a surprising statistic
considering that recently Hines
seemed to be buried on the depth
chart.
During spring practice, Hines
said he hurt the thigh muscles in
his legs, keeping him out for two


to three months and leaving him
behind Lawrence and Hammond,
his roommates, in the rotation.
The three young receivers knew
there would be playing time for
at least one of them as the posi-
tion was already thought to be
the Gators' weakness, even with a
healthy Debose. Now, the coach-
ing staff is even more intent on de-
veloping some of the young wide
receivers as viable options behind
Cooper, Deonte Thompson, David
Nelson and Brandon James.
"The wide receiver position is
really short right now," Hines said.
"We all need to step up and make
plays."


And the wideout position could
be thin for more than just this year.
Other than Thompson, a sopho-
more, the three top receivers are
all seniors.
That means Hines is not only
working to see playing time in a
backup role this season, he is also
setting himself up for a year from
now when Nelson, Cooper and
James are all gone.
"I know someday it's going to
be our turn to play," Hines said.
"We're just trying to do what we
can to help the team right now and
learn while doing that, and then
next year when it's our turn just
go ball."

JUMPBALL

Are college football fans overly obnoxious or duly dedicated?


ail me to the cross because I'm
about to say something not ex-
actly flattering to the vast major-
ity of the Alligator readership.
I love college football, a little less than
DiFer, but still quite a bit.
But I don't love the overwhelming
majority of college football fans.
I follow all sports religiously, and col-
lege football fans rub me the wrong way
far more often than any other sport's fan
base. There are certainly knowledgeable,
rational and respectable college football
fans, and if you are one of those people
then please don't take offense at the fol-
lowing.
Here are the five most annoying
things about college football fans in de-
scending order from least to most an-
noying:

5. HATING ON RIVALS WHEN THEY
ARE BETTER THAN YOUR TEAM. I un-
derstand everyone who goes to Florida
hates Miami and Florida State and vice
versa. I even understand talking smack
when a rival school goes down in a ball
of flames. What I don't understand is
how a Miami or Florida State fan is in
any position to mock a Florida fan while
the Gators are winning championships.
I'm not saying they should be congratu-
lating the Gators, but at least save you
obnoxious banter for a time when your
team is relevant.

4. TAKING MESSAGE BOARDS AS
GOSPEL. There are a lot of Web sites out
there that do a fine job reporting on the
day-to-day happenings of college foot-
ball teams. Unfortunately, the Internet is
often a lawless place where speed is val-
ued far more than accuracy. Time and
again, we see things reported online that
turn out to be false. Every time your team
gets a "commitment" from a hot recruit,
I really don't want to hear the endless
bragging about how he is going to lead
your team to four national champion-


Kyle Maistri
Kyle Points
kmaistrl@alligator org


ships. He might
just turn out to
pull a Nu'Keese
Richardson and
de-commit on
Signing Day.

3. BEING
WASTED AT
GAMES. I like to
drink. You like


to drink. Sometimes I like to drink too
much, and I'm sure you do too. How-
ever, I hate sitting next to the belliger-
ent drunk while watching my team
play, and I'm sure that you do too. For
some reason, getting wasted and go-
ing to the game has become as much a
part of gameday tradition as chants and
fight songs. And when a team is bad, the
game seems to get in the way of its fans'
binge drinking. Even more perplexing is
getting trashed for big games. One of my
friends once got so drunk at the Florida-
Georgia game that he passed out for the
entire first quarter. That doesn't exactly
spell devotion in my opinion.

2. BOOING THE OFFICIALS NO MATTER
WHAT. Perhaps this bothers me because I
am passionate about the sport of football
itself and not just "my team." There is
no rule that says the officials must make
every call in favor of the home team, so
when you clearly identify a penalty that
happens to be on your own team, take
your anger out accordingly on the
player and not the official.

1. THINKING YOUR FAN BASE IS SOME-
HOW DIFFERENT. Without a doubt, the
thing that bothers me the most is hear-
ing, "Team X's fans are by far the most
obnoxious." The mentality of every col-
lege football fan is roughly the same -
support your team no matter what, hate
on everyone else no matter what and
don't concern yourself with any kind of
objectivity.


As usual, Kyle Maistri chooses to
focus on the negatives and ne-
glects the overwhelming posi-
tives about you, the college football fan.
He fails to understand your unwavering
passion and misconstrues your enthusi-
astic nature for something that it's not.
Forgive him. He doesn't know any bet-
ter. Unlike you and me, he doesn't em-
brace the joy of spending Saturday with
90,000 good friends.
So, Kyle, here are the top-five reasons
why college fans are great:

5. TAILGATING: College fans throw the
best parties. There's nothing like a pre-
game BBQ and a cold beer on a Saturday
morning in the fall.
What could be more fun than throw-
ing the football around the front yard
with your best friends on game day? Or
tossing ping pong balls into red plastic
cups while the sounds of a marching
band play in the distance. Not only are
the food and beverages great but you
couldn't ask for a better backdrop. The
towering stadiums, the ivy covered
brick campuses, flags flying from cars
like they are heading into battle-the
atmosphere just can't be beaten. And is
there any other time in your life when
you can walk around talking to thou-
sands of people you've never met before
and act like you have known them for
years?

4. RIVALRIES: Nothing can even
come close to the rivalries that lit-
ter college football. Oklahoma-Texas,
Michigan-Ohio State, Florida-Georgia-
these are about more than football. They
transcend sport. They divide families.
They're personal.
Texas hates Oklahoma because the
Sooners keep beating the Longhorns
with players from Texas. Oklahoma
hates Texas because the Longhorns win
the Sooners' bowl games.
USC hates UCLA because the Bruins

hired a cheater.
UCLA hates USC
because the Tro-
jans still haven't
been caught
cheating.
The ACC
hates that it
hasn't become
the SEC. The SEC
hates that it leads
the country in pa-


rolees.
Fans make rivalries and none are
more heartfelt or hate-filled then college
football's.

3. STUDENTS: The majority of college
football fans are students. The play-
ers they cheer for on Saturday are their
classmates and friends not professionals
they have no interaction with. They go to
class together. They eat at the same res-
taurants. They drink at the same bars.

2. TRADITION: From the 12th man at
Texas A&M and the War Eagle at Au-
burn to the checkerboard end zone at
Tennessee and Chief Osceola's flaming
spear at Florida State, it's the pageantry
of college football that makes it great.
College fans grow up with exciting and
creative traditions that stay with them
for life.

1. PASSION: College fans care. They
really care. Often times, they care more
than is reasonable or logical. But can you
blame them? They aren't just cheering
for a team in the city they live in. They're
pulling for their school or their alma
mater. But most of all, they cheer for the
memories. For many, college football is
a fountain of youth. It takes them back
to the days when they sat in the student
section. When they were more worried
about where the next party was than
their next paycheck. And isn't that rea-
son enough to love them?

Jefferson key for LSU


SEC, from page 17
JEFFERSON IMPRESSING
MILES: LSU quarterback
Jordan Jefferson was one
of many young SEC signal
callers taking over their
teams, and now he will
lead his team into its SEC
debut against Vanderbilt.
Tigers coach Les Miles
was happy with the way
Jefferson took care of the
ball and managed the vic-
tory over Washington.
The sophomore com-


pleted 11 for 19 passes for
172 yards and three touch-
downs and added 42 yards
on eight rushes.
Miles knows the quar-
terback's play will be key
to his team's success.
"That position, year-in
and year-out, speaks to
the teams that win cham-
pionships," Miles said.
"He's been a playmaker
for us. ... I think the way
the he throws it gives us a
great opportunity to win
games."

sive coordinators everywhere.
So when Ingram went down with an injury, the
Gators didn't have much new offensively heading
into the 2008 season -- and struggled until Demps
and Rainey burst onto the scene in the fourth quarter
of the Arkansas game last year.
This year, I was unsure where Florida's mismatch
would come from. Sure, Hernandez is still there but
without Percy Harvin, I see plenty of defenses key-
ing on Hernandez and not letting him be the differ-
ence maker.
And yes, Demps and Rainey ran all over Charles-
ton Southern, but again the loss of Harvin will make
a bigger impact than people expect come conference
play. I'm not sold on Moody staying healthy.
So this year's mismatch will not be wearing a jer-
sey, it will be a scheme instead -- one that Florida de-
fensive coordinator Charlie Strong called the hardest
he's ever prepared for.
From someone who has been around the game for


more than 25 years, and the Gators' defensive coor-
dinator for the last six, that means something.
On one play, Charleston Southern had 13 defend-
ers on the field two were near the sideline jogging
off because Tim Tebow snapped the ball earlier than
the Bucs expected.
UF linebacker Ryan Stamper wasn't surprising,
considering the Gators had similar struggles against
the Sooners in the title game.
"You get the calls in late, the personnel in late,"
Stamper said. "They can call hike, and they're five
wide and we have our base (defense) on the field."
A five-wide offense against a base defense -- that's
a mismatch.
Offensive coordinator Steve Addazio was coy
about how much UF intends to run the no-huddle,
but Meyer said Wednesday the Gators wouldn't ever
run it for an entire game.
And why should they? Its biggest advantage right
now is the element of surprise.
"It's great, we like it," Addazio said. "We choose
when we want to change the pace of the game."
Look for it when the Gators need some spice.
