Meyer's willingness to play the

best causes fierce competition


By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Staff Writer
kmaistrl@alllgatororg

The five stars mean nothing
now.
Neither does the No. 1 position
ranking, the high school All-Amer-
ican game selection or the state
championships. Everyone has the
same pedigree.
Come to Florida, where every
top recruit has a chance to play
right away, provided he's willing
to outwork the All-American to his
right and left.
The plan is simple: commit to
one of the top programs in the na-
tion, outshine every other player at
the same position and secure a start-
ing job as an underclassman.
Following through on the plan is
significantly harder.
Percy Harvin did it. Joe Haden
did it. So did Janoris Jenkins.
Now, safety Will Hill is doing it,
too.


The sophomore made his first
career start in UF's season opener
against Charleston Southern, re-
placing junior Ahmad Black, who
was tied for the most interceptions
in the nation just a season ago.
The Gators have three supremely
talented safeties battling for two
spots on the field.
Coach Urban Meyer and his staff
say they are all starters, but when
the whistle blows and the first ca-
dence is called, someone is left
standing on the sidelines.
"A lot of us have to get used to it
because coming out of high school,
all of us were great players, probably
the best players on the team," said
Black, who won three state titles at
Lakeland High. "You know coming
to college, you know you got to split
time with other great players. You
know it will all work out."
Defensive coordinator Charlie
Strong elected to use Hill, Black
and junior Major Wright in a rota-
tion during the first game, which

Sophomore safety Will Hill (10) supplanted Ahmad Black (35) as UF's opening-day starter despite Black's impressive 2008 season. As a sophomore,
Black tied for the most interceptions in the nation with seven. Coach Urban Meyer plans to use a three-man rotation at safety for the foreseeable future.


keeps everyone happy and works
fine in a 62-3 blowout. However,
when it comes time to put two
of them on the field late in close
games, a tough decision will have
to be made.
The fact that a decision even has
to be made after the year that Black
and Wright who started in all 14
games for the Gators in 2008 had
speaks volumes about Hill, who was
ranked the No. 1 safety in his class,
according to Scout.com, and was se-
lected to play in the ESPNU Under
Armour High School All-American
Game.
The dreadlocked defensive back
has given the coaching staff exactly
what it wants, a fierce competition
for playing time that pushes the
individuals involved to be the best
they can be for the team.
And Hill's not the only one mak-
ing things uncomfortable for some
returning starters.


Get Noticed


For players to respect a coach,
he has to build a strong, caring re-
lationship with each of his guys,
which makes it tough to cast aside a
proven veteran for the promise of a
rising young star.
"It's tough because you get re-
lationships with the players, but
I think at the end of the day, guys
come to Florida for a lot of reasons
and one of them is to win games,"
Meyer said. "If you're the best play-
er, you're going to play, and they
understand that. If you're open and
honest and you evaluate, one thing
we do is we grade every snap and
we meet constantly, so there's no
surprises when there's a position
change made or when a guy moves
up the depth chart. People see it
coming."
The day-to-day competitions

as the Gators' new Banzai package.
Compounding the awkward
situation of an inherently adversar-
ial relationship with a teammate is
the fact that players, by and large,
spend the most time with their po-
sition groups, often growing closest
with guys they are in direct compe-
tition with.
"You think about one's feelings,
but then you also think about you
and your career," Hill said. "So you
just got to just go out there and keep
your head level and just know ev-
erything is going to play out right."
Things have played out right for
Hill so far, but not every player's
presumed ascension has come to
fruition.
Junior Emmanuel Moody, who
transferred from USC to Florida
largely because of the apparent hole
in the Gators' backfield at the time,
has seen the field predominantly
during garbage time.
Sophomores Jeff Demps and
Chris Rainey emerged as home-run
hitting tailbacks during their fresh-
man seasons, frequently leaving the
oft-injured Moody as the odd man
out.
Moody, the Pacific-10 Freshman
of the Year in 2006, is now at full
speed and feels comfortable with
the competition for carries.
"What I love about it is there's no
envy toward any of the other run-
ning backs," Moody said. "We're
just pushing each other and which-
ever running back makes a big play,
we just try to encourage them."
That team-first attitude is birthed
out of a commitment to winning
first and foremost, something that
Black said makes the transition to a
reduced role easier.
Fifth-year senior wide receiver
David Nelson commended Black
for his attitude while conceding
that all of the veterans feel pushed
by the young talent the true sign
of Meyer's mark on the program.
"That's how it should be. That's
competition. Every down, you're
playing your hardest to keep your
spot," Nelson said. "Coach Meyer
has worked real hard here to recruit
good players and recruit depth.
When he first got here, he had first-
deep and that's all he was comfort-
able with. Now, he feels like he has
a two-deep and maybe a three-deep,
and so he's confident knowing if
somebody gets hurt, somebody is
going to step in and fill that void
and not miss a beat."
Practice Makes Perfect
Center Maurkice Pouncey, who
was on Lakeland's state-champion-
ship teams with Black, has started


all but one game since stepping on
campus, but he still feels like his
role is not guaranteed.
"Somebody is trying to come for
my job every day," Pouncey said.
"That's the way I approach it, ev-
erybody goes out there every day
trying to get a spot on the field.
We practice harder than any other
school out there.
Practice, to us, is harder than any-
thing I ever experienced in my life.
I hope it keeps that way. It keeps us
winning."
It's easy to get down after a slip
on the depth chart, a decrease in
game snaps or any sort of deviation
from the aforementioned plan.
Junior linebacker Lorenzo Ed-
wards, who was ranked as the No. 1
weakside linebacker in his class by
Scout.com and selected to the 2007
U.S. Army All-American game, ad-
mitted to being a little depressed
after he came in with lofty expec-
tations but was unable to crack the
rotation.
Fifth-year senior Ryan Stamper,
who plays the same position as Ed-
wards, tried to help out his younger
teammate.
"My first year, my second year, I
wasn't playing and I was just telling
him, 'You think that it's the coaches.
You think that, but you pretty much
have to go deep down and it's pret-
ty much you,'" Stamper said.
"Most of the players here this
is Florida the best players are go-
ing to play, and that's what I told
him, 'Man, you got to find some-
thing in yourself because it's you.
It's not no one but you.'"
It's easy to blame a setback on
outside interference like politics, fa-
voritism or even class standing, but
none of that makes a difference to
Meyer, now in his fifth year as UF's
head coach.
Players, like Hill, earn their
stripes in practice and on special
teams.
As a freshman, Hill started off
playing almost solely on special
teams and impressed coaches by
leading the team with 22 tackles on
kickoff and punt coverage.
He parlayed that into a role as
the Gators' nickelback and eventu-
ally, a starting safety job.
Hill said understanding how
such talented players can get bur-
ied on the depth chart isn't quite the
mystery some make it out to be.
"You got to think about it, there's
a reason for everything," Hill said.
"You just watch practice and, basi-
cally, practice tells it all."
If that's the case, competing with
their teammates may be the tough-
est test the Gators face this season.

City to enforce Game-Day parking rules


* RESIDENTS MUST ACQUIRE A
PERMIT TO SELL SPACES.

By KATHLEEN BIRKHIMER and
DAVID TINTNER
Alligator Contributing Writers

Gainesville residents hoping to sell Game-
Day parking will have to pay close attention
to an ordinance the city plans to enforce more


rigidly this year.
Over the weekend, officials from Gaines-
ville's code enforcement division reminded
property owners that selling spaces on their
lawn for parking requires a permit and a fee.
"It's really an education process at this
point," Gainesville spokesman Bob Woods
said.
Later this season, unlicensed lawn park-
ing will result in fines.
Violators will face punishment ranging


from warnings to $500 fines and court ap-
pearances for repeat offenders.
Woods said the ordi-
Around nance has been effective
Gainesville since last year, and the
number of applications for
permits has doubled since then.
A parking permit for lots in business zones
costs $26.25, and private lots are charged
$52.50 for up to 25 spaces after 25, the per-
mit costs $157.50.


"This is really an attempt just to observe
the extent of the yard parking that was taking
place," Woods said. "Our concern is not to
fine property owners; our concern is to gain
compliance."
According to Woods, homeowners not
those who rent the houses will be held re-
sponsible for infractions.
Woods said the city intends to have of-

Five-month search


for police chief ends


New Gainesville Police Chief Tony Jones answers questions at the first press conference of his
term at City Hall Thursday afternoon.


By JARED MISNER
Alligator Writer

After a nationwide search, City Man-
ager Russ Blackburn announced Capt.
Tony Jones as Gainesville's new police
chief at a press conference Wednesday
afternoon.
Jones has worked for the Gainesville
Police Department since 1975, most re-
cently as interim police chief.
Jones, who graduated from the Uni-
versity of Alabama, first served as inter-
im police chief from 1997 to 1998.
In addition to his 34 years with GPD,
Jones serves as a board member in com-
munity organizations such as the Boys &
Girls Club and the Black on Black Crime
Task Force.
"Tony brings a tremendous amount
to the City of Gainesville," Blackburn
said.
Out of 93 applicants for the position,


five "highly qualified" applicants were
interviewed, according to Blackburn.
"It's been an exhaustive process,"
Blackburn said, adding that selecting a
new chief has garnered more public in-
terest than any issue he's faced as city
manager.
"Tony brings a
tremendous amount to
the City of Gainesville."
Russ Blackburn
City manager

Jones was appointed interim police
chief on July 6, following the retirement
of former police Chief Norman Botsford
on April 16.
Botsford, who served as GPD chief for
10 years, retired amid controversy sur-
rounding several GPD officers, includ-

Business college namesake announces $16M gift


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@allgator org

Al Warrington, namesake of UF's War-
rington College of Business Administration,
announced a $16 million gift to the college
Thursday.
The donation will also be eligible for a
matching grant from the state, pushing the
total to $32 million.


The U.S.
Department of
Commerce awarded
UF with more than
$142,000 to help
Gainesville businesses.
See story at
alligator.org.


Warrington said the money will be used
to hire more faculty in the college, which has
a faculty-student ratio of more than 90-to-1.
"We got great faculty," he said. "The
problem is there's just not enough of
them."
UF's overall faculty-student ratio is listed
as 20.3-to-1 in the latest U.S. News & World
Report, but internal numbers put the ratio
higher, at 22-to-1.
Warrington's donation will be used to


Divers locate body of driver in Paynes Prairie waters Thursi
After nearly a day and a half of searching, authorities
found the body of a driver involved in Wednesday's ac-
cident near Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park.
Dive teams from the Alachua and Marion County
sheriff's offices recovered the body of Thomas Sherman,
48, of Ocala at about 11 a.m. Thursday from the swamp
water, according to Lt. Patrick Riordan of the Florida
Highway Patrol.
The divers had to feel their way through the murky
water in order to locate him, Riordan said.


establish an endowment, and the yearly in-
come from the endowment
will fund the salaries and
benefits of new faculty.
The money will fund
a constant stream of new
faculty, four at a time, as
they work to attain tenure
Warrington in the college.
The college currently
has about 100 faculty.


FHP also identified the other person involved in the
accident as Amy Hodges, 37, of Gainesville.
The accident, which occurred around 4 p.m. Wednes-
day, resulted from Sherman's vehicle hitting Hodges'
from behind.
The impact caused Sherman to lose control, plow
through a guardrail and land in the water.
Authorities have not determined the cause of death,
Riordan said.
CJ PRUNER


Warrington said he will donate the mon-
ey over time.
"I'll be making the gifts as I see fit and as
I can afford it," he said.
The state's portion will also not fall into
place right away, as the state has temporar-
ily halted its matching grants program due
to a lack of money.
The college was named after Warrington,
a UF Trustee and businessman from Hous-
ton, in 1996.

New business caters to local cyclists, coffee-lovers


By KATELYN MCKEY
Alligator Contributing Writer

At The 8th Ave. Bike and Cof-
fee House, any service or bicycle
accessory costing more than $10
comes with a free cup of coffee.
"I am happy so far," said Au-
riona East, 20, as she purchased a
latte. "I like the idea of the coffee
house and bicycle combo."
No other coffee shop in
Gainesville also sells and repairs
bicycles.
"They are the two greatest
things ever," said Ryan Aulton,
one of the owners of the shop.
"We are totally original. We are
the only one south of the Mason-
Dixon Line."
The new bicycle and coffee
house has the elements of a stan-

other shops. According to Aulton,
most of the bicycles are made of
steel, which is more comfortable
than aluminum and less expen-
sive than carbon fiber.
Prices for one of these refur-

range from $200 to $2,000.
"Each colorful bike being sold
at the shop is unique," Aulton
said. "These are bikes with per-

According to Aulton, the best
part of the whole deal is the fact
that the bicycles come completely
refurbished, which means new
tires and tubes, replaced brake

The shop sells a select style of
bicycles, but employees will re-

Shop owners also hope to host

Swine flu causes second


death in Alachua County


By JESSICA CHAPMAN
Alligator Writer

Alachua County experienced its sec-
ond death from the H1N1 virus, known
as swine flu, this week.
The Alachua County Health Depart-
ment suggested in a press release that
pre-existing health problems may have
made the 82-year-old man, whose name
was not released, more vulnerable to the
disease.
Although swine flu cases are normal-
ly mild, some people, especially chil-
dren and the elderly, experience severe
cases.
Jean Munden, administrator of the
ACHD, said that the county is continu-


ing to receive and investigate reports of
flu transmission.
"Our deepest sympathies are extend-
ed to family and friends," Munden said
in the release. "[We] urge citizens to ex-
ercise precautions against infection."
n The Florida Department
Campus of Health reported that 670
people statewide have been
hospitalized with cases of
the swine flu.
Four of the cases reported were in
Alachua County.
There have been 9,079 people hospi-
talized for the virus in the U.S. and U.S.
territories, and 593 people have died, ac-
cording to the Centers for Disease Con-
trol.

Fla. cigarette sales down

In the last year, Florida cigarette
sales have decreased by 28 percent.
According to Florida's Department of
Business and Professional Regulation,
76.8 million packs of cigarettes were sold
between July 2008 and 2009 down
from 106.6 million the previous year.
The new dollar-a-pack tax implement-

from June to July of this year went down
17 percent, according to the report.
"It's because of the new tax," said
Matt Pritchett, a UF sophomore. "People
just don't want to pay it."
Sunoco employee Doug said he has
seen a recent decrease in sales but not a
significant drop.
"People are still smoking, still buy-

upset about losing flavored cigarettes
than about the tax, and sales haven't
been affected.
"We haven't had a problem, not with

will always buy what they want."
"It's a sin tax, can't really com-

But Pritchett said he knows some
people who have quit because of the
price increase. He is also trying to cut
back, he said, and now rolls most of his
cigarettes because it's cheaper.
Pritchett isn't against the tax,
though.
"It's better to tax cigarettes than cut
schools or tax food," he said. "It's a sin

Pawn shop owner announces plan to run for mayor


By EMILY FUGGETTA
Alligator Staff Writer
efuggetta@allgator org

Richard Selwach only shares one
thing in common with the president
- a desire for change.
The second to announce his bid
for Gainesville mayor, pawn shop
owner Selwach said he changed his
plans to run again for a commission
seat after learning Penny Wheat was
competing for the District 4 seat.
"Penny and I would work well
together," he said. "Our plans to


help the environment will go hand
in hand."
Selwach earned 6.19 percent of
the vote for the At-Large commis-
sion seat in March, losing to incum-
bent Jeanna Mastrodicasa.
Aside from improving Gaines-
ville's water supply and preserving
the environment, Selwach said his
major focus is government transpar-
ency and fiscal responsibility.
Selwach raised eyebrows dur-
ing the March elections for his op-
position of Charter Amendment 1,
which would cut nondiscrimination


protections from Gainesville's code
of ordinances.
If elected,
Selwach said he
will try to halt
equal-opportu-
nity legislation
a far cry from
opponent Craig
Selwach Lowe, who chairs
Gainesville's
Equal Opportunity Committee.
"As far as I'm concerned, every-
one is equal. As long as you keep
on defining, you keep perpetuating


inequality," he said. "Everybody
wants to file a lawsuit. We don't
need that."
Selwach also clashes with Mast-
rodicasa, who championed the city's
underage drinking ordinance.
"I wasn't for it," he said. "If the
business owners and the students
came to me and said they don't want
it, I would listen to the people and
debate it and put it to a vote."
Though the number of underage
arrests has decreased, Selwach said
the ordinance doesn't combat under-
age drinking in private and burdens


residents and business owners.
"I go into Chipotle, and I want
to get a hot and spicy burrito. I'm
47 years old, and I pay taxes, and
they want to see my ID," he said. "I
get upset. I say, 'Hey, I'm almost 50
years old, and I'm getting carded.
What is this, Nazi Germany?'"
Selwach said his issue with the
current administration lies in too
much talk and little improvement.
"The less rules and the less taxes
and the smaller government, the bet-
ter," he said. "The more convoluted,
the more crap you have."

Editorial
We at the Department of Darts & Laurels aren't
huge TV fans, apart from our nightly "Jeopar-
dy!" sessions and one of our members' obsession
with all things TLC.
So, we're not sure how all of our Darts & Laurels ended
up being about as-seen-on-TV products, sitcoms, televised
speeches and hypothetical campaign ads. But instead of
worrying about what could be at the least, coincidence,
and at the most, fate, we present you with this week's sor-
ry-for-the-spoilers edition of...



Darts & Laurels

You've seen the commercials. You've seen the parodies
of the commercials. And, if you're unlucky enough, you've
seen someone actually wearing a Snuggie. The "blanket
you can wear" is excellent for old people who want to con-
tinue knitting, clipping coupons or wildly gesticulating
about back in the day while basking in the warmth that
their thin, semi-translucent skin can no longer provide.
However, in no instance is it acceptable for the young,
spry and fertile to enshroud themselves in a Snuggie.
For promoting what is quite possibly the grossest con-
cept we've ever been made aware of, we'd like to throw
wait-isn't-a-blanket-with-arms-supposed-to-be-a-mod-
ern-version-of-a-chastity-belt-anyway DART at Snuggie-
Sutra.com, which is exactly what it sounds like.
If curiosity got the best of you and you checked out
the aforementioned Web site (the figures look like monks,
right?), you can undo the damage by checking out the pi-
lot for Theater Strike Force's sitcom, "Oppie," which is
now available online. So, yeah, LAUREL to Theater Strike
Force for being funny. In the midst of Alligator Cartoon
Debacle 2009, we could use a laugh or two (or one daily,
please apply).
Although we liked the pilot, we have to admit that an
even funnier show will be Richard Selwach's campaign
for mayor. We enjoyed every second of his campaign for
city commissioner last year, and his campaign ads are still
in our favorites on YouTube. He's not playing ball yet, as
he told us his campaign is centered around "the environ-
ment" and "fiscal responsibility" (which is oddly broad in
comparison to "no men in women's restrooms at Home
Depot"), but he's got plenty of time to get specific and/
or crazy.
Actually, Selwach told us part of his platform is to get
city meetings aired on public access television. And no,
we didn't bother to tell him they've been doing that since
19-forever.
For having the bravery to run for mayor after losing
horribly in the race for a lesser office, we'd like to com-
mend Selwach with a only-you-can-make-us-enjoy-local-
politics LAUREL. We can't wait to see what you come up
with.
But while Selwach was in the process of brewing a
great political show, someone else was in the process of
ruining a perfectly good one. For showing disrespect for
our country's highest elected official and disrupting what
was supposed to be a reach across the proverbial aisle, we
would like to throw a DART at Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC).
You tarnished a great speech, not to mention the fact that
you ruined every cable news show that should have been
discussing the content of Obama's speech instead of the
motives for your childish outbursts.
That's all for this week. And if you don't attend this
weekend's football game, we hear that "Half-Ton Dad" is
an equally enjoyable spectacle. Go Half-Ton Dad?

Bright Futures sho
FQ uit bitching. Seriously, shut up. I am tired of
hearing all of you Floridians complain about
how bad the recent cuts in the Florida Bright
program are for you.
Put bluntly, most of you don't need or deserve Bright
Futures, and is it not a grave injustice that you actually
now have to take responsibility for your classes and pay
for the ones you drop?
Just ask Mommy or Daddy for a little extra spending
money each week so you can still order your grande
caramel macchiato from Starbucks every morning.
Maybe it will keep you awake enough in that class you
would otherwise drop.
To be fair, there are certainly students here that need
Bright Futures to help pay their ways through college,
but it is definitely not most of us here. In fact, the medi-
an income of a UF freshman's family in 2006 was more
than $100,000.
That certainly puts most of us here within range of
paying the dirt-cheap tuition that the State of Florida
asks of us each year, which is by far one of the cheapest
in the nation.
Case in point, as an out-of-state student from Kansas
who has Florida Prepaid (but not Bright Futures), it is
less than half as expensive for me to attend UF as the
University of Kansas. Even without Bright Futures, you
all get the best education deal in the United States of
America.
But what makes your whimpering about minor cuts
in Bright Futures especially asinine is how ridiculously
easy it is for you all to earn the scholarship. All you
need to do is earn a weighted 3.0 GPA in high school
and a 970 on the SAT.

Translation: Stumble though

dropping the ball and be sure to fill

My solution is radical, yet sim-
Kyle Robisch ple. And if anyone actually reads
letters@alligatororg my columns, I will find out Mon-
day morning when I wake up to a
mountain of angry letters in response.
We should eliminate the Bright Futures program
in its totality and make it an entirely need-based pro-
gram.
I'm sorry, but if you can't pull a 970 on your SAT,
you simply do not deserve to have the state pay for 75
percent (let alone any) of your already low college tu-
ition.
This program may have had noble aims in seeking to
keep Florida's talented youth in state, but in the end it
just ends up subsidizing the college tuition for the bot-
tom rung of Florida's weak high school system.
I should also note that I do believe every qualified
high school student should have the opportunity to at-
tend a first-rate educational institution such as UF, but
I am also sure that "qualified" is not a 3.0 and a 970 on
the SAT.
And I am even more certain that UF students do not
have the right to weep over a few lost dollars in their
already essentially free education.
The Starbucks coffee you bought with that extra cash
wasn't that good anyway. I promise.

Letters to the Editor
Israel's violence disproportionate
Israelis claim they want peace but then cre-
ate settlements on Palestinian land. From 2005
to 2008 there were 1,754 Palestinian and 117
Israeli deaths. Israel should be charged with
war crimes for its disproportionate military
responses that often punish the Palestinians
collectively.
Just because someone has helicopters and
"precision" missiles does not mean he or she
is not a terrorist. As a Jew I know the need for
solidarity, but as a human, I cannot support
Israel.
Joel Flowers
UFalumnus

Israel should push harder for peace
I am Jewish and very proud of my religion
and heritage but I cannot say that I am proud
of the state of Israel. It is hard for me to talk
about this issue but I feel that I must.
I wish Israel would make a stronger effort
in the world to promote peace. I understand
that many countries in the region do not be-
lieve in her existence and continue to have
anti-Semitic views and actions, but Israel is
here to stay and must take a lead role in the
world to promote peace.
We are dealing with a very sensitive situ-
ation in the Middle East, but given that we
are one of the most powerful countries in the
region (thanks to the help from the U.S.) we
must make a stronger effort for peace.
Why must we keep building settlements
on Palestinian land in the West Bank? The
U.S. opposes it, and the people there are led
by an elected government that is supported
by the United States. Why must we use exces-
sive military force, killing innocent civilians in
Gaza? Why must we blockade humanitarian
aid to those in need? Why must we build an-
other Berlin Wall through Palestinian land? I
just do not understand.


"Defending ourselves" just does not jus-
tify all of these actions. Peace talks can also be
looked at as a form of "defense." A peaceful
solution with the Palestinians will ultimately
lead to more peace with Israel and its neigh-
bors. Many anti-Israel countries use this con-
flict as justification to hate Israel.
Eli Cohen
Jacksonville resident



UF shouldn't make students wait for aid
I sincerely hope the entire UF financial
sector is slated for a thorough overhaul. It is
nearing the end of the third week of classes,
and there is still no financial aid, much less
any noted 'progress' on ISIS. I have been to
the Registrar's Office, Financial Affairs and Fi-
nancial Services (including my dean's office)
several times, and the response is always the
same. No one takes responsibility, but every-
one is quick with excuses and a shove out the
door when in reality, it's one monetary me-
nage a trois.
That is unacceptable. I consider myself a
patient man, but when I'm facing eviction be-
cause of UF's bureaucratic bullshit, I say bull-
ocks to patience and demand answers.
I know there is a miracle "emergency loan"
available, but that's not the point. Why does
this avoidable situation exist in the first place?
Talk about a setup. Disburse financial aid be-
fore classes begin and leave the fiscal respon-
sibility to us to pay our academic bills.
Why does UF only process loans/waiv-
ers Mondays and Wednesdays in a school of
about 50,000 students? Why do no explana-
tions accompany the cryptic fluctuations and
revisions on ISIS?
Shame on you, UF, for giving the "We're
here for you, the students" spiel and failing to
make good on the financial end.


I'm not sure which is worse: how it seems
UF intentionally places roadblocks to retain
our financial aid as long as possible or the
amount of generated interest UF makes as the
millions of our financial aid sit in the UF bank
account.

Wilson's outburst childish
By now, you might've heard of Joe Wilson
and his inability to hold his tongue. If you
haven't, here's the story:
During President Obama's address to
the joint session of Congress and the nation
Wednesday night, Rep. Wilson (R-SC) was
heard shouting "You lie!" for all to hear. Wil-
son's outburst was in response to Obama's
statement that the health care "reforms [he's]
proposing will not cover those who are here
illegally."
My question is, what's this child doing
in Congress? The incident felt like an infant
crying in church. No, it's worse. The baby
wouldn't know any better. It was more like
a grown man yelling out "God who?" in the
middle of Communion.
Wilson's apology, which was three sen-
tences long, called his actions "inappropriate,"
"regrettable" and "lacking civility." Yeah, no
kidding. Isn't this apology a little sparse con-
sidering he blatantly disrespected the highest
elected official in this country, and maybe the
world?
The president's chief of staff has accepted
Wilson's apology, and Democrats in Congress
have come out saying they don't want to em-
phasize the event for fear that it might over-
shadow the president's address. I agree. I just
thought the Student Body should hear about
this disrespectful, immature representative, if


only so that he is never elected to public office
again.
Much more important though, was the
president's speech. So if you haven't seen it
already, go find out what your president had
to say about health care reform.

Aramark to blame for campus food prices
Campus food prices are high because the
university invites a company called Aramark
to operate as a monopoly over all food ser-
vices on campus.
As a former student senator with the Prog-
ress Party, I authored bills and tried to use the
power of Student Government to stop the ad-
ministration from signing a new, more-than-
decadelong, multimillion dollar contract with
Aramark a year ago.
My efforts were stopped by the majority
party who acted, as usual, as a mouthpiece
for the administration.
Aramark profits off of students not utiliz-
ing all of their pre-paid meals in dining halls
(about 40 percent are missed) and by taking
advantage of its monopoly position on cam-
pus and gouging students at its franchises.
On top of that, it extends its exploitation
beyond its on-campus monopoly; it's even a
violation for a student to bring food in from
an off-campus establishment for a group
meeting in the Reitz Union. The food must be
provided by Aramark's on-campus catering
company, Classic Fare. Talk about exploita-
tion.
Many campuses around the country in the
past few years have kicked Aramark out. It's
time for students to fight back.

FACES OF GAINESVIIJF
BY LEORA ARNOWITZ


Downtown, where locals go to clubs,
bars and romantic dinners, William Moses
Smith Jr. takes walks for fresh air.
When asked, he recites his name in the
voice of a preacher, with a smile that dis-
plays a gap where a tooth once was.
With graying brown hair and warm,
blue-gray eyes, Smith paces downtown ev-
ery day. Tucked into the collar of his lem-
on-yellow polo shirt sits a small silver cross
and a collection of his past personas.


Ana Goni-Lessan/ Alligator Staff
William Smith sits outside the St. Fran-
cis House Homeless Shelter and Soup
Kitchen on Sept. 3.


He's been a Navy corpsman, a surgical "Cocaine for me is directly related with a
technologist, a childhood baseball player, sexual thing, especially crack. It gives you
an alcoholic and a cocaine addict. that excitement. Euphoric."
Now, he is homeless. Smith stays in St. His need for sexual stimulation led to
Francis House on Main Street and South the birth of his now 15-year-old daughter,
Fourth Avenue. He has been sobe .lin.
about three months and attributes his ne After a night of beers and Jagermeister
lifestyle to a rededication to Christianity. ots, he went to bed with a friend who


Growing up in Gainesville, Smith was
the youngest of four siblings and describes
himself as a shy boy.
"As a kid, I can remember having the
girls chase me on the playground," he said.
"Isn't that funny? I wasn't interested at
all." I
At 17, he had his first beer. After high
school, he went through a program at UF
and Shands to become a surgical technolo-
gist, which is a substitute nurse.
He then joined the Navy, where his
alcoholism began. With beer constantly
flowing in his system, he said it was easy to
become involved with women. Smith was
engaged four times, married three times
and fathered a daughter with a friend.
In the '90s, he smoked crack cocaine
for the first time. He tried it three times
and didn't think much of it. Less than a
decade later, it became his biggest vice. As
his wives, girlfriends, jobs and religious at-
tachments came and went, the cocaine and
alcohol lingered.
"Working with the submarines, it was
very strict," he said. "I only did [cocaine] on
weekends or once in a while, but I would
do it for days in a row."
He dabbled in marijuana, getting tastes
of "Gainesville green" from dealers, but it
never had the attraction of cocaine, he said.
"I have tobe honest," he said, glancing at
his digital watch as if looking back in time.


was also his supervisor at work. A month
later, she told him she was expecting.
"She was very nonchalant about the
whole thing," Smith recalled with a deep-
throated laugh. "I said 'How are you? Is
there something wrong with you?' and she
said, 'Oh, I'm pregnant,' and walked away.
I was in shock for two months."
After three years of trying to make the
relationship work, she and Smith broke it
off. She moved to Texas, taking their daugh-
ter with her. Smith said the loss, combined
with the death of his mother, drove him to
escalate his cocaine addiction.
"I went out binge drinking one night,
and I don't recall going, picking up a guy
and buying drugs, and next thing I know, I
was sobering up in a house somewhere."
Smith turned to a new woman to keep
from being lonely and married her shortly
after they began dating.
At the time, Smith was a clinical pstruc-
tor at Tampa General Hospital anarsid he
felt guilty for "getting crockl~''., 1,--.
was employed. On the fringeof'< d:..
from his third wife, Smith turF to his
crack pipe, which caused him to lose both
his wife and his job.
He did a short stint living in a dealer's
cabin, where he was given drugs every day
in exchange for watching the home. The
downside, he said, was that he was only
fed on the whim of the dealer, Abe.


Abe later threatened his life because
Smith owed him money for drugs, and
Smith eventually forfeited his truck to the
dealer to pay his dues.
"He could have been bluffing to a cer-
tain degree, but how did I know that?"
Smith said.
Carless and drug-hungry, Smith was
single and banned from his family's home.
"I was homeless," Smith said.
After selling two cars for drugs and al-
most losing his life, Smith had nothing to
his name. He had drug-dealer friends trade
him cocaine for everything he owned, in-
cluding food stamps.
"You smoke, and your problems fade
away," he said. "Once, I smoked for 10
days every day. I didn't eat for a week. I
picked at a burrito."
He said it was prayer that broke his
cycle of drug abuse. With a glaze shining
over his reddening eyes, Smith spoke of his
devotion to God.
Today, he spends his days reading
scripture, attending Alcoholics Anony-
mous meetings and doing chores at the St.
Francis House. He stays in a bedroom with
four male roommates, a floral comforter
covering his bed and a Bible laying face
up on the pillow. At his bedside, next to a
partially empty bottle of Fanta Orange, are
piles of neatly folded clothes.
"People always say, 'Bill, you have so
many clothes,' but I know I plan to move
out of here soon, so I brought everything
with me," he said.
Wrinkles crease his forehead as he
thinks seriously about his future.
"There's a fine line between recovery
and relapse," he said.
Smith has no plans to relapse.
"I'm not seeing my daughter, my rela-
tionships are strained with my family, I'm
just tired of feeling useless and worthless
and not having self-esteem," he said. "I
think this is my time."

Picks


Column


SITE: The Swamp (cap. 88,548)
KICKOFF: 12:21 p.m.
TV/RADIO: SEC Network/ AM 850


The alligatorSports Brand Picks
Column altered its style last week
with a debate over the week's most
divided game instead of a silly inter-
view, and we have taken the lack of
response from our readers as a sign
of approval.
The first week of college football
provided viewers with plenty of ac-
tion.
A knockout punch, a major upset
and an actual good game between
FSU and Miami. This season looks
promising already.
Week two comes with one of the
most anticipated games of the year:
No. 3 USC at No.8 Ohio State. Nat-
urally, it wasn't a hard choice for
which game to argue.

OHIO STATE WILL BEAT USC BE-
CAUSE... Ohio State was almost em-
barrassed last week by the Midship-
men.
The Buckeyes struggle at times to
stop the triple-option offense, but in
the end, they pulled out the win and
that's all that matters.
Terrelle Pryor was criticized for
supporting Michael Vick on his eye
black strips, but I say who cares?
He's allowed to say whatever he
wants, and he will silence his critics
by having a Vick-like performance
against a young Trojans defense.
Good thing he isn't playing a team
called the Bulldogs, or that could get
ugly.
USC freshman quarterback Matt
Barkley seems like he is destined for
greatness and he probably is -
but he will struggle in his first game
on the road at a major college. The
Horseshoe will not exactly be the
friendliest of confines.

It's time to spice things up a nations last week, according to
bit. Meyer, and defensive coordinator
Coach Urban Meyer called Charlie Strong said he only called
his playcalling for the Charleston three different defenses against


the Buccaneers.
Expect that to change Saturday
when No. 1 Florida (1-0) gets its
final tune-up at 12:21 p.m. against
Troy (0-1) with next week's South-
eastern Conference opener against
Tennessee looming.
The Trojans were the pre-

UF coach Urban Meyer said the Gators will open up the playbook this weekend against Troy after
using only three offenses and three defenses against Charleston Southern.


season media pick to win the Sun
Belt Conference, although they
did lose 31-14 at Bowling Green
last week.
"You're facing a better team.
You're facing better personnel,"
Meyer said. "You're facing an of-
fense that's very explosive and a
real talented defense. Last week,
we went into the game with just
a couple defenses. You'll see the
whole defensive package. Offen-
sively, you saw very minimal op-
tion [last week]
"You're going to see a lot of
that this week. We're kind of let-
ting it go this week."
Meyer also used Troy's near-
upset of LSU in Baton Rouge, La.,
last season to keep UF focused.
The Trojans led 31-3 in the third
quarter before the Tigers rallied
for a 40-31 win.
"I think the best thing that hap-
pened to us is when they should've
beat LSU and outplayed LSU last
year," Meyer said.
Now, UF will seek to replicate
last week's offensive onslaught.
The Gators rushed for 369 yards
- Florida's second-highest total
in Meyer's four-plus years and
five touchdowns behind the three-
headed attack of sophomores Jeff
Demps and Chris Rainey and ju-
nior Emmanuel Moody.

turned all 11 starters from 2008, it

NFL season brings questions, here are the answers


The NFL season has officially begun.
The Steelers opened the season
with a 13-10 win against the Titans.
With the start of the season, some of the
questions that have been looming during
the offseason will get answered.
Luckily for you readers, I consider my-
self to be quite knowledgeable about the
NFL and have the answers for most of the
important questions heading into this sea-
son at least that's what I like to think.
Here are some of those tough questions
with their answers:
Can Tom Brady return to form after a
knee injury in week one required season-
ending surgery?
Absolutely. Brady will have no problems
looking like his old MVP self, and having
Randy Moss and Wes Welker to throw to


doesn't hurt.
Will the Lions actu-
ally win a game this
year?
Yes, but not many.
I'll take a guess and
Bobby Callovi say three. Expect
Bobby's World rookie quarterback
bcallovi@alllgatororg Matthew Stafford to
look less than impres-
sive, but receiver Calvin Johnson will still
look like a stud.
How many games into the season before
Al Davis fires Tom Cable, and will Richard
Seymour ever show up in Oakland?
The first question shouldn't take long,
probably about six games. Davis barely
wanted him to begin with, but he seemed
to be the only one who wanted the job. Sey-


mour will eventually suck it up and make
the trip out west. This trade will make him
lack motivation or make him hungry to
make the Pats dumb for getting rid of him.
Can Mark Sanchez lead the Jets back to
the playoffs?
Kind of. The Jets will make the playoffs,
but more so because of their strong running
game and great defense than because of
Sanchez.
Will Brett Favre make a difference in
Minnesota?
This unfortunately is a yes. As much as
I would like to see him fail for torturing us
by being the only thing ESPN would cover
this summer, Minnesota has Adrian Peter-
son, a good defense and playmaking wide
receivers that will make it hard for him not

UF WOMEN'S TENNIS

Gators set to kick off season


Defense aims for shutout


By GREG LUCA
Alligator Writer

Things appear to be looking up for the Florida
women's tennis team. After reaching the Round
of 16 in the NCAA Championships and finishing
14th in the ITA rankings last year, the team has
reason to believe it can produce even better re-
sults this season.
Each of the top four players from last season's
team, including seniors Marrit Boonstra and An-
astasia Revzina, will be returning to action in
2009.
The team is also welcoming a recruiting class
that coach Roland Thomqvist believes is the best
he has had in his eight-year tenure at UF.
The incoming class is headlined by the nation's
No. 2 recruit Lauren Embree, who established a
36-11 record while playing as tough a schedule as
anyone in the nation. Embree, who attended Lely
High in Marco Island, has competed in a number
of prestigious tournaments such as the French
Open and U.S. Open Women's Qualifying Tour-
nament, and is expected to make an immediate
contribution to the UF team.
Other freshmen joining the Gators this sea-
son will be the nation's sixth-ranked recruit, Al-
lie Will, as well as Caroline Hitimana of Belgium
and Brittany Borsanyi.


Also new to the team will be Claire Bartlett, a
former top-10 recruit who is transferring to UF
after spending a year at Virginia.
This mix of young talent and veteran lead-
ership ensures that the Gators will be a tough
matchup for any school in the nation when team
play begins in January.
Until then, the primary focus will be on the
numerous individual tournaments filling the
schedule in the coming months, beginning with
the SEC Coaches Fall Classic, which starts today.
The Gators head into these
tournaments with four players
ranked in the ITA preseason
rankings Boonstra at No. 3,
Revzina at No. 33, sophomore
Joanna Mather at No. 86 and
sophomore Jessica Alexander
at No. 104.
Boonstra Boonstra's ranking comes
as no surprise, as she posted a
36-10 record last year and won 23 of her last 26
matches while playing as UF's No. 1 for the dura-
tion of the season. She also reached the quarterfi-
nals of the NCAA Singles Championship, earning
herself All-America honors in the process. Still,
Boonstra heads into the season with plenty left
to prove, as she was only 5-6 against opponents
ranked in the top 25 last season.


FOOT, from page 17

feels like there is plenty to improve
upon namely the three points
scored by Charleston Southern, a
Football Championship Subdivi-
sion team.
"I personally felt like it was
too much," redshirt senior Ryan
Stamper said. "Especially with all
the guys we had coming back and
the defense we have. Even with
our twos [backups] in there, I still
feel like a team like that shouldn't
score."
Strong added: "It's great that he
felt like that. ... Sometimes the ex-
pectations are a little different with
the competition you have to play."
Strong expects an up-tempo,
quick passing attack from Troy
similar to Charleston Southern.
Florida's ability to pass rush has
caused opponents to incorporate
more one, two and three-step


drops. The Gators allowed 228
yards passing against the Bucca-
neers.
Above all, though, the mis-
sion for this week remains the
same. One more victory will tie
the school record for longest win-
ning streak. The 1995 team won 12
games in a row before falling 62-24
to Nebraska in the
Fiesta Bowl.
"I know it
sounds cliche, but
Football we're just trying to
win the game," re-
ceiver David Nelson said. "We're
just trying to go out there this
weekend and beat Troy. We know
they have some phenomenal play-
ers and some great individual tal-
ent. We'll throw whatever we need
to win the game. Tennessee's next
week. We'll worry about them
after this week. Right now, we're
worried about Troy."

UF VOLLEYBALL

Gators look to stay unbeaten


na..iuii i.......iiu../ i..mi..u. ji
UF coach Mary Wise will take her team to Tampa, the host of 2009's Final Four,
this weekend. Three of the four teams in the field are ranked in the top 10.


By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alllgatororg

If the Gators' plans for this
season pan out, this weekend
will only be the first time they
make the trip to Tampa to play
in a four-team tournament.
No. 4 Florida (5-0) will com-
pete in the Tampa Twice Tour-
nament in the Sun Dome, about
12 miles from the St. Pete Times
Forum, the site of the Final Four
this December.
UF will face host South Flor-
ida (5-0) tonight at 8 before tak-
ing on No. 3 Washington (6-0)
at 6 p.m. Saturday.
The impetus for scheduling
the early season tournament
in Tampa was the opportunity
to promote women's college
volleyball in the area before
the Final Four, but UF coach
Mary Wise said she is more ex-
cited about the competition this
weekend than the city her team
is playing in.
"We'll get better if we play
South Florida and Washington
in a parking lot," Wise said. "It's
not the venue, it's the teams."
But with three of the four
teams participating ranked in
the top 10 No. 9 Minnesota
rounds out the bracket it's
not out of the realm of possibil-
ity that at least one of them will,
as the tournament's name im-


plies, be back in Tampa at the
end of the season.
"We're kind of just taking it
one match at a time so far, but
it's definitely a goal to be down
there twice," sophomore setter
Kelly Murphy said.

"We'll get better if we
play South Florida and
Washington in a park-
ing lot."
Mary Wise
UF volleyball coach


Although the Gators made it
clear this week that their focus
was on the Bulls and the Hus-
kies, they still acknowledged
their long-term goal of getting
back to Tampa.
Regular-season competi-
tion against highly ranked op-
ponents, like the ones they will
face in this weekend's tourna-
ment, can help prepare them
for the postseason.
"Every time we do some-
thing correctly, every time we
win a match, every time we
beat a team to 25, it's practice
for the Final Four, it's practice
for the ultimate goal," junior
setter Brynja Rodgers said.
The Gators haven't shied
away from saying they have a
potential Final Four berth on
their minds.


At the team's preseason me-
dia day on Aug. 13, Wise even
joked that it was exactly 131
miles from the team's practice
facility to the St. Pete Times Fo-
rum "not that we counted."
Given the fact that Florida
will host an NCAA regional
and won't have to leave the
state once tournament play be-
gins, some have argued that the
Gators' road back to Tampa in
December could be easier than
the two-hour drive down Inter-
state 75.
Murphy said reaching the
Final Four will be no less of a
challenge for UF than usual de-
spite the convenient location,
and the team still has plenty
of room to improve before the
opening serve tonight.
The Gators still have not
outblocked any of their five op-
ponents this season, and they
recorded 28 service errors last
weekend.
An elite team like Washing-
ton is more than capable of ex-
ploiting Florida's weaknesses,
so UF placed a strong empha-
sis on both areas in practice
throughout the week.
"Missing serves is an au-
tomatic point lost," right-side
hitter Lauren Bledsoe said. "By
not getting a block, then you
have all these confident hitters
who just want to get kills on us
all the time."


PICKS, from page 17


USCWILL UNDOUBTEDLYCOVER THE 7-POINTSPREAD BE-
CAUSE... of the questionable moral character of Ohio State
and quarterback Terrelle Pryor. The guy wore Mike Vick's
name on his eye black last week against Navy. When he
tried to justify it in an interview after the game, he offered
up this insightful analysis:
"Not everybody's the perfect person in the world. I
mean, everyone kills people, murders people, steals from
you, steals from me, whatever," Pryor told reporters.
It's a good thing he's so understanding when it comes
to murder. I guess he won't feel bad when Taylor Mays
and USC get done with him.
It's going to be a lot like what Vick did to his dogs, only
the Trojans won't put Pryor out of his misery afterwards.
- MIKE DiFERDINANDO

Now, on to the picks!
From the cream of the crop to the bottom of the barrel,
here are our 10 writers:
In the lead with a 7-3 record after the first week is Mike
"I have a problem" DiFerdinando, who has made at least
one reference to alcohol in all of his columns.
Next up sitting at 5-5 is Bobby "I'm putting Rutgers in
the Picks Column" Callovi, who really believed the Scarlet
Knights had a shot at keeping it within 30 against Cinci-
natti.
From the Florida Times-Union with a 5-5 record, Mike
"Take my time" DiRocco, who made sure to wait as long
as possible to send his picks in.
From the Orlando Sentinel and also holding a 5-5 re-
cord, Jeremy "Can someone tell me what is going on with
Andre Debose" Fowler, who can finally stop asking his
daily questions about Debose's injury.
From the Miami Herald with yet another 5-5 record, Joe
"Good job" Goodman, who I refuse to say anything nega-
tive about. Keep up the great work, Joe.
Tied for second with a 5-5 record is Mike "Silver spoon"


McCall, who always seems to have things go his way, in-
cluding going to the usually boring FSU-UM game and not
only getting to see a great game, but also witnessing an
ass-beating in the stands. One of these days, something
bad will happen to you.
From the Gainesville Sun with a 4-6 record is Edward
"Nothing to see here" Aschoff, who wouldn't really talk to
us this week because he knows how embarrassing his insult
could become.
At 4-6 is our sports editor Phil "Last minute" Kegler,
who has set a good example for the rest of the writers by
making it a habit of writing his stories after his 7 p.m.
deadline.
From the Palm Beach Post with a 4-6 record, Ben "You
stink" Volin, who got into an argument and almost a fight
with another beat writer after insulting his personal hy-
giene.
In last place at 2-8 is Kyle "Abandon ship" Maistri, who
has changed his allegiance in the Big 12 and Pac-10 from
Oklahoma and Oregon to Baylor and Oregon State. Sorry,
Bears and Beavers, looks like your seasons will be ruined
soon enough.

to look decent. And being decent will be
good enough to make this team a champion-
ship contender.
How will Michael Vick perform for the
Eagles?
He is not allowed to play until week 3,
and by that time, the Eagles and quarterback
Donovan McNabb will have a better idea
what the plan for Vick is.
This will allow him to come in and be ei-
ther a distraction to defenses or catch them
off-guard. Either way, he will be an impact
player when he is on the field, but don't ex-
pect him to be on the field more than 15-20
snaps per game.
With some of the storylines out of the
way, it's on to my postseason predictions.
In the NFC, the Giants, Vikings, Falcons
and Seahawks will win their divisions, with
the Eagles and Packers making the playoffs
as wild cards. The Patriots, Steelers, Colts
and Chargers will be the division champions
in the AFC, and the Jets and Ravens will get
into the postseason with wild card bids.
Finally, who will win the Super Bowl?
The Ravens' dominating defense and
hard-nosed rushing attack will be enough
to top the Vikings 20-14 in this year's Super
Bowl.
Even if I'm off on a couple of these, one
thing is for sure: Thank goodness the NFL
season is back.

UF will start six-game homestand


By EUGENIO TORRENS
Alligator Writer
etorrens@alligator org

Just because the grass is greener,
shorter or thicker on the other side
doesn't mean it's more fun to play
on.
The UF soccer team begins a six-
game home stint tonight when it
hosts Duke at 7, and so far this sea-
son, home is where the Gators' heart
is.
Playing at home means playing
on a pitch UF knows all too well,
and soccer fields aren't the same
everywhere. The ball moves differ-
ently on different grass surfaces, just
like in golf.
"It's like a different climate,"
midfielder Erika Tymrak said.
At UF, the grass is thinner, which
makes for a faster-moving ball that
rolls smoothly across the surface.
The grass fields in Indiana and Il-
linois were thicker, which meant a
slower-moving ball.
"We like to have fast balls on
the ground, so it made it difficult at
times (in the Midwest)," midfielder
Jessica Eicken said.
UF is 2-0 at home compared to
1-2 on the road.
While the team has struggled on
the road, UF coach Becky Burleigh
said the trip was good experience
for the younger players.
Playing away from home also
provided the team with a glimpse of
what happens when things don't go
the Gators' way.
"There's going to be days where
you can't really connect, so how
are you going to win games when
you're not in that rhythm?" Burleigh
said Monday at a press conference.
While playing on the road is a
staple of any level of athletics, there
is a certain routine to be established
at home that can't be mimicked on
the road.

ing what to expect, not having to

FOOTBALL

Troy in familiar position


By MIKE McCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alligatororg
Don't expect Troy to be overwhelmed
by the prospect of facing the defending
national champions.
It's what the Trojans do.
Saturday's contest in The Swamp will
mark the third year in a row that Troy has
taken on college football's title-holder,
and after nearly upsetting LSU last sea-
son, intimidation is no longer a factor.
Troy has nothing to lose.
"We want to go in and show the big
teams we can compete with them," re-
ceiver Austin Silvoy said. "We have a
game plan we've created, and we're ex-
pecting to win with it.
"If we win, we beat the best team in
the nation. If we lose, it only makes us
better playing the best."
The Trojans went 8-5 in 2008, win-
ning the Sun Belt Conference, and put up
strong fights against the Tigers and the
Buckeyes. They fell 28-10 to Ohio State,
but OSU led just 14-10 after three quar-
ters. Then, in November, they led LSU
31-3 in the third quarter, but the Tigers
rattled off 37 unanswered points to fend
off the upset bid, 40-31.
Performances like that have made it
easy for UF coach Urban Meyer to keep
his squad from overlooking Troy.
"The best thing that happened to us
is when they should have beaten LSU,
when they outplayed LSU," Meyer said.
"The good thing is, I think our players
know from watching the film that they're
good schematically and have good per-
sonnel."


Meyer singled out defensive end
Brandon Lang this week as a player to
watch, and for good reason. Lang led the
Trojans with 10.5 sacks and 17.5 tackles
for loss, and he ranked in the nation's top
15 in both categories.
Linebacker Boris Lee, who attended
football camps at UF growing up, and
receiver Tebiarus Gill could also cause
problems for the Gators, but the Trojans
will have to play better than last week's
31-14 loss to Bowling Green to keep
things competitive.
Receiver Josh Jarboe could also have
a big impact for Troy. The 6-foot-2,
199-pounder was rated as the nation's
No. 10 receiver by Rivals.com out of high
school, but he was kicked off the team at
Oklahoma after a gun charge and an on-
line rap video that stirred controversy.
The game Saturday will also mark a
reunion between UF quarterback Tim
Tebow and Silvoy. The two played to-
gether at St. Augustine Nease High,
where Silvoy nearly caught more passes
in his senior season (54) than UF starting
wideouts David Nelson and Riley Cooper
have combined for during their careers in
Gainesville (57).
If Silvoy duplicates his two-touch-
down performance from the 2007 meet-
ing between Florida and Troy, Tebow
will be partly to blame, as Silvoy credits
the quarterback with making him a suc-
cessful player.
"For me, it was huge because I played
junior varsity my junior year," Silvoy
said. "Having him as a leader, he taught
me how to work out and how to practice
right, having that never-let-up intensity."


Troy receiver Austin Silvoy (bottom) will face former high school teammate Tim Tebow in The
Swamp on Saturday. Silvoy scored two touchdowns in 2007 when UF defeated Troy 59-31.
