LOCAL NEWS


Restaurant closes doors with little notice


Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff
The interior of Mellow Mushroom seen through its front door Thursday afternoon. The University Avenue
restaurant closed Tuesday night.


By JARED MISNER
Alligator Writer

Gainesville residents will have
to get their psychedelic fix some-
where else now that local pizza
favorite Mellow Mushroom has
closed up shop.
Mellow Mushroom, 1209 W
University Ave, closed its doors
indefinitely Tuesday night due to
a host of ambiguous reasons.
"We've had a lot of problems
with the equipment and the whole
building in general, really. It's di-
lapidated," said Zach Joiner, 24, a
server and cook who worked at
Mellow Mushroom for more than
2 1/2 years.
Joiner, who last worked as a
cook Monday night, said a man-
ager told him via text message late
Tuesday night that the owner of
the restaurant, Deo Klein, was per-
manently closing the Gainesville
location and the doors would be
locked Wednesday.
Klein could not be reached for
comment.
"There are probably still a few
employees who don't know,"
Joiner said.


Mellow Mushroom CEO Rich-
ard Brasch said the Gainesville
location was the only location to
close in "quite some time."
"The condition of the store
would have ultimately required a
substantial amount of infrastruc-
ture investment, and the owner
was hesitant to make that finan-
cial commitment," Brasch said of
the franchised location.
Although Brasch could not
comment further on the exact rea-
sons for the close, he said the econ-
omy might have been a factor.
"The decision by the owner to
close was not shocking," Brasch
said.
Joiner had a different reaction.
"It was definitely very unex-
pected," Joiner said.
Stephanie Rogg, a UF sopho-
more and a frequent Mellow
Mushroom customer, also ex-
pressed shock and disappoint-
ment.
"I mean, some restaurant had
to close. I'm just surprised it was
this one," Rogg said, referring to
the economy. "I used to go to Mel-
low Mushroom every day before

H1N1 vaccine on order


By MARIA PIQUET
Alligator Contributing Writer

Alachua County's first batch of H1N1
vaccines is expected to arrive early next
week.
The Alachua County Health Depart-
ment put in an order for about 1,500
H1N1 vaccines this week, and they are
expected to arrive Monday or Tuesday.
More shipments are expected to arrive
weekly until January, and people can re-
ceive them at ACHD, 224 SE 24th St., for
free.
"Because we're not getting them all
at once, we're going to have to prioritize
who is getting the vaccine first," said Paul
Myers, assistant director of ACHD.
Children will receive the first vaccines
because they are one of the most vulner-
able groups to the virus, according to the
Centers for Disease Control and Preven-
tion, Myers said.
There are two types of swine flu vac-


cines. There's a nasal spray, which con-
tains the alive, attenuated influenza vi-
rus, and there's a shot, which contains the
inactive virus, Myers said. The upcom-
ing shipment will only include the nasal
spray.
Because the nasal spray contains the
live influenza virus, it's not suitable for
people who have underlying health con-
ditions such as asthma or
Local diabetes, he said. They will
News have to wait a couple of
New weeks before the flu shot
starts getting included in
the shipments.
The Health Department hopes to
give doses of the vaccine to the UF Stu-
dent Health Care Center within the next
month or so, Myers said.
"It all depends on how much we re-
ceive up front, what type of vaccine we're
getting and what kind of penetration into
the most vulnerable populations we get,"
Myers said. "Then we'll start getting into

Students rush to sell


high-demand tickets


By ANDREW NORRIS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Patrick Reynolds walked into Library
West at about 5:45 p.m. Monday. He sat
down, opened his laptop and waited until 6
p.m. Congratulations ticket found.
Reynolds, a UF sophomore, is one of the
5,000 students whose computers ran the
virtual gauntlet that is Ticketmaster and
emerged with a ticket to the UF-Georgia
game Oct. 31.
"When it got to my place in line, I was re-
ally excited, Reynolds said. "I knew if I got
a ticket, I'd be able to sell it and make some
extra cash."

A look at Craigslist shows Reynolds
wasn't alone in that thought. Since Monday,
student and alumni tickets have been listed
for sale from $100 to more than $200.
"It's frustrating," said psychology senior
Josh Hemandez. "I feel like people who re-

REGIONAL

Reitz board


takes first at


conference

By JARED MISNER
Alligator Writer

Showing up with one of the smallest
programming budgets, UF's Reitz Union
Board Entertainment left with the biggest
prize Saturday at the National Associa-
tion for Campus Activities' regional con-
ference in Winston-Salem, N.C.
Kristen Huff, RUB Entertainment
president, attributed UF's first-place fin-
ish Saturday to a dedicated, tight-knit
group of students all working together
to produce better programming for UF's
diverse Student Body.
"It means so much to me," Huff said.
"It's a recognition for all the hard work
we do."
UF beat Eckerd Col-
lege's Palmetto Produc-
tions from St. Petersburg
to win the top prize in
the $150,000 and below
budget bracket.
Huff "When she an-
nounced it was us, we
exploded we were screaming and
shouting," said Amy Casaletto, vice
president of external affairs for RUB En-
tertainment. "People from other schools
were Gator chomping for us."
RUB Entertainment's budget of
$118,000 provides UF with free movie
viewings, comedians, karaoke programs
and a variety of other free nightly pro-
gramming.
"A lot more schools had a lot more
money than we do," Casaletto said. "I re-
ally think that's why we won, because we
do something every night and it's always
quality and it's always free."
Although the award carries no mon-
etary value, Huff hopes the top award
will mean a greater amount of funding in
future years.
"We just want students to have as
much fun as we do," she said.


Wall lets students express worries

By NICOLE LYNN GREINER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Students expressed their concerns over cock-
roach infestations, stress and the national debt at the
Wall of Worries Thursday afternoon.
The event, which was put on by Student Gov-
ernment's Disability Affairs Cabinet, took place on
the Plaza of Americas and was held in honor of UF's
Disability Awareness Month. i
Andrea Perez, a women's studies junior, wrote
about her battles with stress on the wall. -
"Even though I have tried to stop, I just can't
break the cycle," she wrote.
Perez took some time to put her worry on the
wall, adding she already goes to the UF Counseling
Center on campus. She said events like the Wall of
Worries help students to know they are not alone.
Caroline Robichaux, director of Disability Affairs
Cabinet, said mental disabilities are the second-larg-
est registered disability on campus.
She said the idea behind the Wall
Local of Worries and the other events is to
News raise awareness and inform students
about mental and physical disabili-
ties on campus.
Students who contributed to the wall were given
tea and peppermints to help ease the stress they
were under.
"It's different," said UF sophomore Stephen
Holmgren. "I can't say I have seen anything like
that before."
Holmgren said he is worried about the national
debt.
He said it's a problem that our generation is go-
ing to have to worry about and eventually pay off
in the future.
The campaign will cost SG about $1,500, Ro-
bichaux said.
Accent and SG have also arranged for Louis
"Twitchels" Centanni to speak on Oct. 21. Centanni
was profiled on MTV's "True Life: I have Tourettes."
Centanni's appearance will cost about $2,500.
A Halloween carnival will end the campaign
Oct. 29 from 12:30 p.m. to 2p.m. The carnival will Juliana Jimenez/ Alligator Staff
raise money for 15 students at the Sidney Lanier Religion junior Vickie Machado prepares to write on the Wall of Wor-
School, a school for people ages 3 to 22 who have ries. The SG Disability Affairs Cabinet displayed the wall Thursday on
disabilities. the Plaza of the Americas for Disability Awareness Month.


Common, Kid Cudi may come to UF


* IF SCHEDULED, THE SHOW
WILL TAKE PLACE DEC. 4.

Flavet Field might be getting a double
shot of rap in December with Common
and Kid Cudi, thanks to Student Govern-
ment Productions Music & Entertainment.
The SG-funded organization filed pa-
pers recently seeking funds for a possible
Dec. 4 show.
Common, an established rapper from
Chicago, could get paid $45,000 while Kid
Cudi, an up-and-comer known for his sin-
gle "Day 'N' Nite," is currently slated for


an estimated $30,000.
The show would be the second major
event at the new band
shell, which was fin-
ished this summer. It
hosted a concert at the
end of August with
Citizen Cope and The
Whigs. About 4,000
people showed up.
Common Allen Johnson, a
sports management se-
nior, said he's a big fan of Common and
likes Kid Cudi too.


"Common isn't like other artists who
use vulgar language in their music," John-
son said. "I think Common is a good rep-
resentative of the African-American com-
munity."
He took issue, however, with the com-
bined price tag of $75,000.
"Hell no," he said. "That is way too
much money."
Instead, he'd like to see the money spent
on saving a program or a professor's job.
"We need to be putting that money
somewhere else," he said.

Women's charities receive grants from local organizations


Commission awarded $500 to two groups


By KATHLEEN BIRKHIMER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Gainesville's Commission on
the Status of Women is meeting
the economic climate with a poli-
cy of generosity.
The group recently doubled
the budget of the mini-grant it
introduced this fall, which aids
women's advocacy projects.
They awarded two $500 grants
this weekend to The Arbor House
and The Displaced Homemaker


Program.
"We were so impressed by
these two applicants that... the
board gave us the funding to
fund a second full grant this
first round," said Megan Silbert,
a member of the GCSW and a
leader in the mini-grant selection
process.
The Displaced Homemaker
Program aims to benefit women
who have primarily been home-
makers throughout their lives but
must now enter the workforce.


"The experience that we've
gathered over these years
is extremely important..."
Nancy Griffin
Program coordinator

The program received a blow
when its funding was cut by 40
percent beginning July 1.
Although the mini-grant can't
come close to covering the orga-
nization's $67,000 cut, coordina-


tor Nancy Griffin said the money
will buy workbooks she considers
essential tools for these women.
"The experience that we've
gathered over these years is ex-
tremely important and we want
to be able to give that information
away freely and not be charging
people," Griffin said.
"These women will be able to
go out and have a stronger eco-
nomic situation for them, which
also will benefit our community
in terms of productivity and may
benefit their children if they're
also parenting," Silbert said. "If
we have higher unemployment,


then it's even harder to get a job
and they are more needed."
The Arbor House, which de-
clined an interview, provides safe
housing, counseling and career
resources for single and expect-
ant mothers, according to their
Web site.
The GCSW received 13 com-
plete applications, submitted by
for programs ranging from wom-
en's self-defense to religious em-
powerment. The selections were
based on factors such as how well
the applicants could measure
their effectiveness and the sus-
tainability of the programs.

Environmentalist speaks about history of Fla. activism


By CAROLYN TILLO
Alligator Writer

Joe Browder may have talked
about the Florida's history of envi-
ronmental activism, but he warned
his audience not to take history too
seriously.
Browder spoke to a crowd of
about 85 Thursday night at Pugh
Hall.
He said history has a tendency
to make struggles like the environ-
mental movement seem less intense
than they were.
"History has a way of sanitizing
conflicts and making the prevailing
participants appear to have been
safer and more acceptable than they
were at the time," Browder said.
Browder, an environmental ac-
tivist who worked in the Carter ad-
ministration and served as the con-
servation director of Friends of the
Earth, helped preserve the Florida
Everglades and continues to work
as an environmental consultant.
Browder said the environmen-
tal activism of the 1960s and 1970s
was possible because of the public
awakening that occurred across
Florida and the nation.
He said the public's frustra-
tion over the Vietnam War and the
struggle with discrimination led to
an increased openness to the move-
ment on a national level, while
South Florida was open to an op-


portunity to end its associations
with land fraud and crime.
"I think we were riding some-
body else's waves," Browder said.
Looking back on his role as an
environmental advocate, Browder
said he encouraged students inter-
ested in protecting the environment
to develop a thick skin and a will-
ingness to engage in conflict.
Ryan Scott, a Gainesville resi-
dent, said Browder's message
emphasized standing up for the
environment even in the face of ad-
versity.
Scott said the speech taught him
how the history of Florida's natu-
ral resources involves
On a connection between
Campus industry, the economy
and politics.
Jack Davis, an associate profes-
sor of history at UF, said he values
Browder for his ability to offer pre-
cise, first-hand memories about his
role and the roles of other figures in
the environmental movement.
Davis interviewed Browder for
his biography of environmentalist
Marjorie Stoneman Douglas, who
worked with Browder.
"He has a steel-trap mind," Da-
vis said.
Browder will be donating letters,

Editorial
t's been a pretty stressful week at the Alligator. Not only
do we all have exams coming up, we've also been do-
ing the jobs of several people. It's been so rough that we
might even take our three-day weekend early. On that note,
we present to you a doing-homework-at-home-has-never-
sounded-so-appealing edition of...



Darts & Darts

And Laurel.
First and foremost, we fire a big, fat DART to the 10-day
"sore"-cast on Weather.com. At 3 p.m., it should not feel
like 103 degrees. Did you not get the memo, Mamma Na-
ture? October is here.
In fact, it's so awful hot in this sunny state of ours that a
Tallahassee man has been to stripping down to his skivvies
to keep cool and comfortable during his daily bicycle ride.
But not for long.
Richard Irby, 55, was ordered not to wear a thong in pub-
lic any more and to stay out of trouble by a Leon County
judge Monday. Irby was charged with misdemeanor disor-
derly conduct Aug. 17 for showing too much while donning
his banana hammock in a mobile home park, according to
an article by The Associated Press.
However, the article fails to mention Irby's disability.
Locals call him the Bikini Bicyclist, and in a video on the
St. Petersburg Times Web site, it's made clear that the man
isn't stripping for attention.
Irby had to learn to eat, speak and walk again after he
was hit by a car in high school. He's most comfortable riding
his bike in a Speedo, like your grandpa does at the beach.
Let's launch a haven't-you-ever-seen-skin-before?
DART at the Leon County judge who ruled against Irby,
and hit all hit-and-run drivers with a can't-you-own-up-
to-your-actions? DART, preferably one dipped in salt and
lemon juice.
On a serious note, we launch a don't-drop-the-soap
DART to the 53-year-old former UF employee accused of
sexually violating a 9-year-old girl last year. If what this girl
says is true, then there's a special place in Hell for you, Da-
vid Blankenship.
The "unusual" and "luxury" gift store Brookstone has
come under fire after some say its new Frog-O-Sphere is not
habitable for the amphibians it houses.
Don't get us wrong; we're all about pets. One of our
moms even has a Shrimp-O-Sphere with a snowflake-sized
crustacean named Roscoe residing on her window sill.
However, Roscoe has been alive for a more than a year.
These frogs are reportedly dying within weeks.
We can't understand how these Frog-O-Spheres offer
a "starting point for learning about life in ecosystems," as
Brookstone's Web site claims. According to PetCo's Web
site, African Dwarf frogs the kind Brookstone sells -
should be kept in a 10-gallon tank at minimum.
So, for keeping its product on the market just to make a
buck, we fling a poison DART frog at Brookstone.
And finally, a LAUREL to all of the bright and shining
faces we'll see tomorrow from 2 to 5 p.m. during the Al-
ligator's second open house of the semester. Remember to
bring clips, resumes and at least half a brain. We know, it's
Friday, and the last thing you probably want to do is look
for work.
Now that you've finished reading this edition of Darts
& Darts (& Laurel), bring a clipping of it today when you
apply for opinions editor. This is a test.
Be sure to wear your seat belts when driving to (and
from) Louisiana this weekend.Gooooo Gators!

Media obsessed w
As you read this, I am hard at work imbibing the
contents of my giant, green Bubba Keg on a bus
to Baton Rogue.
I'm surrounded by more than 100 of my best friends
on this trip, and one thought continues to run through
my mind: Is Tim Tebow dead?
Actually, that question is probably irrelevant in the
ultimate scheme of things because John Brantley's Heis-
man campaign just now seems to be heating up. With-
out fail, every time I turn on ESPN, check Yahoo! Sports
online or pick up the Alligator, I read about the immi-
nent demise of Tebow and the rise of Brantley.
Did you know that his high school numbers were
better than Tebow's? Watch any news source for more
than a passing second, and you soon will.
To be completely honest, I'm flabbergasted that
Brantley hasn't yet jumped to the top of ESPN.com's
Heisman Watch poll. Both his passer rating and touch-
down-to-interception ratio are better than Tebow's.
Let's just go ahead and fly him to New York now and
award him the Heisman Trophy.
Frankly, all this attention focused on the quarter-
back situation here in Gainesville is flat-out ridiculous.
Without a doubt, some press is due when the Heisman-
Trophy-winning quarterback of the No. 1 team in the
nation goes down with a concussion. But the national
media obsession with Tebow and Brantley has spiraled
out of control.
In the end, though, this is just another symptom
of the media's fixation with college athletes such as
Tebow. It is simply unacceptable for the media and na-
tion to feast on the ups and downs of college athletes,
no matter what sport they participate in. At the end of

Asking them whether they are
virgins (as they did to Tebow during
S a press conference) is unethical and
not newsworthy. If you wouldn't
Kyle Robisch ask a college student standing next

the question, you certainly should
not be putting these twenty-somethings on the spot in
front of the national spotlight.
Taking it a step further, some have even advocated
paying college athletes in the power conferences by not
only giving them free tuition but a flat salary. Aside
from destroying the slight parity that already exists in
college sports, this would completely eliminate the stu-
dent part of the equation.
If you attend a university and are granted a degree,
you damned well better have earned it. The current sys-
tem makes that outcome questionable for thousands of
college athletes, and a change to a salary-based system
in college sports would only make the value of their de-
grees laughable.
Tebow and his backup, Brantley, are just two of the
many examples of media excess and infatuation with
college stars. There should be coverage, without a
doubt. But there should also be respect for the fact that
they are both athletes and scholars.
Otherwise the media should be covering the speed
with which I just downed the full 72 ounces of my Bub-
ba Keg.

Letters to the Editor
Philadelphia doesn't hate dogs
I am shocked and extremely insulted from
Tommy Maple's article about my birthplace
and the city in which most of my family re-
sides. I am not going to comment about the
dog fighting subject because I love dogs and
know their value to our society.
Maple, who is a grad student in interna-
tional communications, has managed to ex-
amine the moves of two separate parties and
conclude that 1.4 million people feel the same
way. If he is with international communica-
tions, this is not a good way for him to start
off. Is he going to call other countries bad
names when he grows up to be a real grown
up and has a job?
This article should be about two parties
only: the 3rd District Court in Philadelphia
and the Philadelphia Eagles management.
The courts let Vick play. This has nothing to
do with the city or its residents, yet he calls
them heroin addicts and drug dealers. I have
news for him. There are drug dealers every-
where, even in Gainesville. Most important-
ly, there are thousands of UF students with
relatives from Philly and who are from there.
In a student newspaper, you have insult-
ed an entire nation of good people who hold
our city in the highest regard by printing his
trashy, sensationalized column. Let me be
clear the city does not hate dogs. That is
my main point.
There are 1.4 million people in that city
and millions of others who love dogs, some
have even given up their season tickets be-
cause the Eagles signed Vick. They chose dogs
over their football team. Let me ask Tommy
this question: If you had season tickets for the
Gators, would you throw them away if Bran-
don Spikes had a dog fighting ring?
I ask that you retract his sixth paragraph
about Philadelphia's people and apologize
to me and all of the students families you
have insulted. I would much rather speak
to Maple personally, but he doesn't have the
face of a brave man. I am very interested to
know where he is from, so I can Google ugly

Thursday column's author misinformed
I'm a Gator, and I read the Alligator ev-
ery day. Tommy Maple's Thursday column
is one of the worst I have read and one of the
most obvious examples of an author not do-
ing his research.
First of all, just because a manager, owner
and coach of a sports team decides to acquire
a specific player does not mean the entire
city is in favor of it. I live in and was in Phila-
delphia this summer when they acquired
Michael Vick. There was an incredible out-
cry from Philadelphia fans. So many people
were disappointed and there were even peo-
ple protesting in front of the stadium. People
have given up season tickets and vowed to
attend no more games because of what the
Eagles decided to do. Don't assume that ev-
eryone is in favor of the idea.
Quite frankly, I am not sure what the point
of this column even is. Are you upset with
the Eagles? Philadelphia? From this article
it's pretty apparent that the author has never
really experienced Philly. Philadelphia is ex-
tremely rich in history and art, and clearly the
author has no appreciation for culture. I don't
think the entire city of Philadelphia should be
looked down on because of one team's deci-
sion to acquire one player. Yes, Philadelphia
has some of the most knowledgeable and
passionate sports fans out there but in no way
does this make them bad people. This makes
Philly a great city to visit and live in.
Go Phillies! Go Eagles! Go Gators!

UF ADMINISTRATION

Nursing dean one of


three finalists for spot


The dean of the College of Nursing is
one of three finalists for the presidency of
Georgia Southern University, officials an-
nounced Thursday.
The university, located in Statesboro,
Ga., announced last month that Kathleen
Long was one of six finalists, but the field
has now been narrowed by half.
The other finalists are Brooks A. Keel,
vice chancellor for research and economic
development and professor of biological
sciences at Louisiana State University, and
David Belcher, provost and vice chancel-
lor for academic affairs at the University


of Arkansas at Little Rock.
The current president, who has been
in office since 1999, will
resign at the end of De-
cember. Long has been
the dean and a profes-
sor at UF's nursing col-
lege since 1995.

H1N1 takes 4th victim


* SHE WAS 20 YEARS OLD.

By LEORA ARNOWITZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

The swine flu claimed its fourth victim
in Alachua County with the death of a
20-year-old woman in late September.
The woman, an Alachua County resi-
dent, was not a UF student, according to
Paul Myers, assistant director of the Ala-
chua County Health Department. He said
she had severe, underlying health condi-
tions when she contracted the flu.
"Our deepest sympathies are extend-
ed to family and friends," said ACHD
spokeswoman Jean Munden.
While most cases of the swine flu are
mild, pre-existing health conditions play


a large role in determining how someone
will react to the virus, according to an
ACHD press release.
Symptoms of the flu include coughing,
sneezing and a fever of more than 100 de-
grees. People who are infected may expe-
rience a sore throat, runny or stuffy nose,
body aches, headaches, chills, fatigue, di-
arrhea or vomiting.
To prevent the spread of the swine flu,
ACHD encourages those who are feeling
sick to stay home and away from others.
Also, before visiting a medical office or
clinic, ACHD recommends sick individu-
als contact their medical provider for in-
structions.
"We continue to receive and inves-
tigate reports of flu transmission in the
county and urge citizens to exercise pre-
cautions against infection," Munden said.

games. It just sucks."
Joiner said that Monday's
trivia night was one of the slow-
est he's seen in years, whereas
past Mondays at Mellow Mush-
room defied the industry trend
of slow shifts.
"I think Tuesday was one of
the slowest lunches we've had. I
think we only made about $300
for the whole lunch period,"
Joiner said about the restau-
rant's last lunch shift.
Brasch could not confirm ru-
mors that Mellow Mushroom
would open another store in
Gainesville.
"We are going to work dili-
gently to create a plan to resur-
face in [the Gainesville] mar-
ket," he said. "We're going to
do everything we can."
Brasch elaborated, saying
that a reopening of Mellow
Mushroom in Gainesville at a
different location would de-
pend on a number of factors,
including whether to keep the
Gainesville location a franchise
and whether to market the
Gainesville location strictly to
UF or to the entire community.
"It depends, in some respect,
on the interest we get from


Gainesville residents that are re-
ally craving Mellow Mushroom
to come back," Brasch said.
Joiner, who has already filed
for unemployment, said there
was some initial confusion as
to whether employees would
receive their final paychecks.
According to Joiner, a manager
distributed paychecks Thurs-
day night.
Joiner directed feelings not
necessarily to UF
Local students such as
News Rogg, who said
she'll miss the
house calzone the most, but to
the Mellow Mushroom regulars
who came in everyday.
"I mean it was good food. I
really enjoyed the food," Joiner
said. "I can't really say that for
all the places I've worked in."
As of Wednesday night, the
restaurant's Twitter and Face-
book accounts were down, but
the company's Web site still
listed the Gainesville location in
operation as of Thursday night.
"It's not like we wanted this
result, but now that we're faced
with this reality, we have to ask
ourselves, 'OK, what's the best
solution?'" Brasch said.

team are kind of undercut by people who just want
to make a profit."
Hemandez spent the few minutes before 6 p.m. in
his living room with friends laptop ready but
wasn't as lucky. This is the first year since attending
UF that he will have to buy a ticket secondhand.
"I don't mind paying a lot of money for tickets,
but it's tough being a college student and spending
that much money just to see your team play," Her-
nandez said.
Reynolds, who bought his season football tickets
from a graduate student, doesn't see a problem with
buying and reselling tickets.
"He just wanted a few bucks for rent and stuff,
and I just wanted a ticket," he said. "It's the same
with these. If someone wants a ticket badly enough,
they'll be willing to pay up to a certain amount with-


in reason. We both get what we want."
Although there were some complaints last year
about the new system, which switched from the
phone method to online, the University Athletic As-
sociation said the sale ran glitch-free.
"Besides the fact that the tickets went very fast,
everything ran fine with Ticketmaster," said Mike
Masson, student ticket supervisor for the UAA.
"There were no glaring issues that we saw."
Some students say the system still has issues.
"I think the current system isn't working," Her-
nandez said. "Although it's convenient to do every-
thing online, it seems like there's too many things
that can go wrong."
Hemandez said while waiting in line, his screen
froze. He had to sign in again, likely losing his tick-
et.
"I actually prefer the old method of calling on the
phone. Even though it took a long time, you were
rewarded for your persistence," Hemandez said.


Children to take priority for H1N1 vaccine

the college and the students."
Dr. Phillip Barkley, director of the Student Health
Care Center, said the clinic is following the ACHD
guide on who receives the vaccinations first. He is
waiting for word on when UF students and staff will
become the next priority.
According to a recent AP poll, only 45 percent of
people ages 18 to 29 will be lining up for the vaccine,
something Barkley expected.
"We've known for years that people who are rec-
commended to be vaccinated sometimes choose not
to be," Barkley said.
Over the years, only about 13 percent of pregnant
women, 40 to 45 percent of healthcare workers and
two-thirds of those over the age of 65 have received


the seasonal flu vaccine, even though it's recom-
mended these groups be vaccinated by the Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention and the Adviso-
ry Council on Immunization Practices, Barkley said.
"But your primary defense against
getting influenza is to get vaccinated."
Paul Myers
assistant director of ACHD

For those who choose not to be vaccinated, Myers
stands behind the public health messages the ACHD
has been pushing: If you're ill stay home, practice
good cough and sneezing etiquette and continue to
wash your hands.
"But your primary defense against getting influ-
enza is to get vaccinated," Myers said.

The UF soccer team ran this
week.
And ran. And ran.
But the Gators weren't condi-
tioning their bodies; they were ad-
justing their mindsets.
Tonight, when No. 14 Florida (8-
4-1, 2-1-1 Southeastern Conference)
hosts Alabama (5-4-1, 1-1-1 SEC),
the Gators will have a chance to
show how different they are from
the squad that left Oxford, Miss.,
disappointed five days ago.
After a rough weekend in which
the Gators blew a late lead, coach
Becky Burleigh said her defense
needed passion.
Defenders have been giving
opposing forwards too much of a
cushion, they were told during a
team meeting Monday. If the back
line applies more pressure, its pres-
ence will limit the attacking play-
ers' options.
The back line also needs to im-
prove its team defense, which in-
cludes double-teaming the player
with the ball, Burleigh said.
"The biggest issue is the lack of
aggressiveness on our part," she
said. "If you can do it for a half, you
can do it for a whole game."
Coaches tried to rev up the back
line's intensity in practice this week
through competition.
The Gators were divided into
three groups. Two of the groups
scrimmaged while the other ran
with strength and conditioning
coach Karin Werth.
After one scrimmage, the losing Steven H. Keys/ Alligator
group ran with Werth and the other Strength and conditioning coach Karin Werth ran UF's players extra
two scrimmaged. hard in preparation for Alabama after a poor defensive weekend.


UF looks to keep


up strong blocking


effort against LSU
By ANTHONY CHIANG
Alligator Writer
achiang@alligator org

During Florida's recent blocking drought, senior libero
Elyse Cusack wrote a quote on the whiteboard before prac-
tice that the team will play by for the rest of the season.
"Offense wins games, but defense wins champion-
ships."
If No. 6 UF (12-2, 6-1 Southeastern Conference) has plans
of winning its 19th consecutive SEC title, it will have to con-
tinue its recent high level of defensive play.

"I think the extra attention we've been putting
into blocking is finally paying off in the match-
es."
Elyse Cusack
UF senior libero

After failing to outblock an opponent in the first 10
matches of the season, the Gators have now done so in three
out of their last four matches. They will look to keep it up
as they travel to Baton Rouge, La., to take on LSU (11-4, 5-1
SEC) at 7 p.m. on Sunday in a match televised on ESPNU.
"In practice, we have been doing so much blocking, and
players have been going in early and getting in extra reps,"
Cusack said. "I think the extra attention we've been putting
into blocking is finally paying off in the matches."
In the last couple of seasons, blocking has been a key
statistic for UF. The team is undefeated in its last 20 regular-
season matches when it outblocks an opponent, dating back
to 2008.
Sophomore middle blocker Cassandra Anderson has led
the charge for the Gators, as she has averaged 1.23 blocks
per set this season. She had 10 block assists in the team's
win Wednesday against South Carolina.

Young runners will get chance to earn spots at FSU


By JESSICA BETTER
Alligator Writer

A few UF runners are hoping to secure
spots later in the season with strong perfor-
mances at the FSU Invitational on Saturday
morning.


Coach Todd Morgan said the meet will
give the younger runners a chance to step up
and get another race under their belts before
the Southeastern Conference Championship
on Oct. 31.
Junior Ali Crabb, who finished fifth at the
SEC meet in 2008, will be one of six women


participating in Tallahassee on Saturday.
"I know some of the girls (who will be run-
ning) haven't had a chance to race in a while,
and they are ready," she said. "They have been
training well, and it should be a great race for
them. I'm excited to get a chance to run again
and prepare for SECs."


Alison Babb, Callie Cooper, Sydney Dev-
ore, Mandy Perkins and Erica Taltos will also
be running in the 5K race with Crabb.
Morgan can run 10 women at the SEC meet.
He said there are three spots up for grabs and
anticipates the women who run well at this in-
vitational to be considered for those positions.


UF suffered first winless

weekend since 2007

SOCCER, from page 9

time.
The loss, coupled with a 1-1 tie at Mississippi State on Oct.
2, gave UF its first winless weekend of SEC matches since the
beginning of the 2007 season.
"To score two goals on the road at Ole Miss, the disap-
pointing part isn't our offense," Burleigh said. "It's giving up
three goals."
Burleigh said the team's objective after a weekend of SEC
,play is to walk off the pitch two wins and six
points closer to finishing first in the confer-
ence for the fourth straight year.
"We're complacent," freshman Kayla Bala
Soccer said. "We've won the SEC so many times, when
it comes to teams like Mississippi State and Ole
Miss, we're like, 'Oh, we're going to beat them.' We have the
state of mind that we're going to crush those teams, but we
have to go in there thinking that anything can happen."
While the team failed to live up to Burleigh's expectations
last weekend, Florida will have a chance at redemption with a
two-match homestand that ends Sunday against Auburn.
Unlike the two teams the Gators couldn't beat last week,
the Tigers, who reached the NCAA Tournament last season,
come to Gainesville respected by Florida.
But playing a tougher opponent might be just what UF
needs.
"When we were playing FSU, the defense was on point,
and everyone was really sharp because we knew their for-
wards were really good," Bala said. "But when you're play-
ing teams that you don't think are as good, you become pas-
sive."

Wise sees blocks, digs as effort statistics

VOLLEYBALL, from page 9


But she wasn't the only one who thrived
on the defensive end that night. Sophomore
setter Kelly Murphy finished the match with
17 digs, while Cusack racked up 18.
"We always say there are two stats that re-
ally scream effort," UF coach Mary Wise said.
"One is block assists, the other is digs."
Though the outside hitters are not known
for their defense, even they are getting in on
the action. In their last four matches, Kristy
Jaeckel, Colleen Ward and Callie Rivers have
combined to dig up an average of 18.25 balls
per match.
Jaeckel has quietly improved her defen-
sive play this season. After averaging just 1.17
digs per match last year, she has the second
highest dig average this season after raising
that number to 2.23 per set.
But the leading force behind the team's
improved defensive effort has been Cusack,
a player who takes pride in her defense and
leads the team in digs.
"I think that, especially for me defense
being my position, great teams are great de-
fenders," Cusack said. "That's blocking and
digging balls, and if you do that, you are go-
ing to beat your opponent."
Despite the abrupt defensive turnaround,
Wise does not believe UF has reached its full
defensive potential yet.
"There have been some years that I can say,
'This is as good as we are going to get,' and
that's just not the case this season, not with as
many sophomores as we play," Wise said. "I
really like the potential of this team."

Florida looks to end Tiger Stadium streak


LSU has won 32 straight Sat. night games


By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@allgator org

It doesn't matter if it's John
Brantley or Tim Tebow who
gets the start at quarterback, No.
1 Florida (4-0, 2-0 Southeastern
Conference) will face its tough-
est test of the season Saturday
night as it heads to Death Valley
to take on No. 4 LSU.
UF coach Urban Meyer said
Tebow will likely be a game-
time decision.
If he is unable to go, backup
John Brantley will get his first
career start under the lights.
"(John has) al-
ways been a guy
who could throw
the ball. It's like
Football a running back
that just can run.
Now, he seems to be a quarter-
back who has command of the
game, command of the huddle,"
Meyer said.
Brantley has completed 22
of 30 passes for 232 yards, four
touchdowns and no intercep-
tions this season.
"He's getting the full (play-
book). When he's in that game,
there's no baby steps. He's go-
ing to go play," Meyer said.
The Tigers (5-0, 3-0 SEC) have
been dominant when playing at
home on Saturday nights, win-
ning their last 32 games, includ-
ing 21 straight under Les Miles.


Since 1960, LSU is 211-59-4 all
time at night in Tiger Stadium.
Its last Saturday night home loss
came against Alabama in 2002.
"It's the toughest place I've
played at since I've been here,"
cornerback Joe Haden said.
Two years ago, Tim Tebow
received death threats on his


cell phone the week before the
game. This year, LSU fans were
able to get a hold of Brantley's
and wide receiver Riley Coo-
per's phone numbers.
Saturday's game against
Florida is the highest-ranked
matchup to be played in Baton
Rouge since No. 1 LSU beat No.


3 Ole Miss 7-3 in 1959.
That day, Billy Cannon took
a fourth-quarter punt back 89
yards for the game's only touch-
down. The play would become
the highlight of the Heisman
Trophy winner's career.
Cannon's distant successor,
sophomore Jordan Jefferson,

t's 15 minutes from i i,:.-i t deep in the bowels
of Tiger Stadium.
Urban Meyer and John Brantley are hud-
dled together in a dimly lit 7;ii,;l.;. just outside
the Florida Gators' locker room.
They speak in hushed but passionate voices.
Brantley: "You said this was my chance!
You said even if the doctors clear him to
play, you still had to make a decision. You
told me yesterday I was going to be the start-
er. My family drove all the way out here,
and the receivers even promised they'd try
this week. You have to go in there and tell
him!"
Meyer: "How am I supposed to do that?


I've got kids, man."
A loud thump comes
from inside the locker
room, and the twoo jump
back, startled.
Brantley: "Look,
Mike McCall the offense can still be

are fast as lightning,
and Deonte is bound
to catch one out of every three deep balls.
Then we can bring in Moody to grind out
the tough yards."
Meyer: "Who?"


They are interrupted again by the sound of
crashing and growling on the other side of the
door.
Meyer: "Well, I guess I better go get this
over with."
Meyer enters the locker room and is shocked
at the scene before him.
A single, naked light bulb swings from the
ceiling.
The room is empty, save for three tigers
whimpering in the corner.
Tim Tebow is seated in front of a mirror,

and writing with the other.

It's amazing this guy still has a job.
Sure, years ago he used to win a
bunch of games when he still had his
faculties about him.
He's got a national championship
under his belt, and he's great with
members of the media.
But his fans are getting unruly, crav-
ing nay, demanding a change.
His southern charm makes him
an affable personality, and he has ac-
complished a lot during his time at his
Florida school. Yet the recent run of
reprehensible results seems to warrant
a firing. Disgruntled boosters are call-
ing for his head. His bosses, however,
seem unwilling to pull the trigger due
to all the good will he has accumulated
in previous years.
He is, of course, Palm Beach Post
beat writer and dear friend of the Al-
ligator Ben Volin.
The last time out, our panel of ex-
perts here at the alligatorSports Brand
Picks Column logged a banner week.
Volin? He managed a pathetic 3-7
mark. His reaction? Bliss.
Those three wins were a 300 percent
increase from his previous two weeks
combined.
Without further ado, here's our Bos-
ton College-Virginia Tech debate:

BC WILL UNQUESTIONABLY CRAP ALL
OVER THE +13.5-POINT SPREAD BE-
CAUSE ... The Eagles own a three-game
regular-season winning streak against
the Hokies. So BC may have lost the
last two ACC Championship games.
Big deal. The last time I checked, it
was still October. More importantly,
Boston College has covered in eight
of its last 11 games against Virginia
Tech, including six of the last eight in
Blacksburg. If you need one more rea-
son to agree with me, just consult the
picks column standings.

UF SWIMMING

Florida kicks off season at UVA


By TONI-ANN MILLER
Alligator Writer
When UF travels to Virginia
for its season opener this week-
end, the Gators will have two
experienced seniors leading the
way.
On the women's side, senior
Gemma Spofforth will head a
strong squad into Virginia when
competition gets underway Fri-
day.
"We're probably returning one
of the best women's teams in the
country," coach Gregg Troy said.
"We don't have any weaknesses
that are obvious at the moment."
Last season, Spofforth broke
UF records in the 100- and 200-
yard backstrokes, and the 200 in-
dividual medley.
She also defended her NCAA
and Southeastern Conference
titles in both the 100 and 200
back, and she was named the SEC
Swimmer of the Year.
"She's got a lot of leadership, a
lot of background and certainly a


lot of experience," Troy said.
She also represented Great
Britain in the 2008 Olympics and
finished fourth in the 100-meter
backstroke.
Spofforth said the experience
she gained in the Olympics will
help push her to do better this
season.
"Coming fourth in the Olym-
pics, although a lot of people said
it was really great, it's something
that has made me hungry for
more," she said. "Every disap-
pointment I've had in the past
year just gives me a little bit more
hunger to swim faster every time
I get in the pool."
Spofforth said she is accus-
tomed to the expectations placed
on her because of the success she
has had, so she just focuses on
her performance in the pool.
"I've had a while to get used
to the pressure," Spofforth said.
"I've already had pressure from
world competitions and the
NCAA, so I don't really think
about it. I just use each match as a

stepping stone for the next one."
On the men's side, UF is with-
out two of last season's top three
performers Bradley Ally and
Rex Tullius graduated last year.
The third, Shaune Fraser, returns
as the senior pace setter for UF
this season.
Fraser will enter this week-
end's meet at Virginia with a
great deal of experience.
Last season, he had six All-
America honors at the NCAA
Championships, capturing the
200-yard freestyle and the 200
butterfly.
He also broke four individual
UF records the 50, 100 and 200
free and the 200 fly.
Troy said that after the sum-
mer Fraser had, he expects the se-
nior to take on some of the lead-
ership responsibilities.
Fraser said he would use his
performance to lead the younger
swimmers.
"I try to just lead by example
and just do the best that I can,"
he said.

UF advances four

at ITA All-American
By GREG LUCA
Alligator Writer
Despite having to face three ranked opponents in the pre-
vious two days, UF freshmen Allie Will and Lauren Embree
looked as strong as ever in first-round wins at the ITA All-
American Championships. Also recording first-round victories
were Marrit Boonstra on the women's side and Alex Lacroix on
the men's side.
Embree's 6-2, 6-2 win over Marta Lesniak of
SMU brings her to 6-0, while Will improved to
11-1 with her 6-3, 6-3 victory over Boise State's
Tennis Pichittra Thongdach. The freshmen comple-
mented their singles victories with a 8-3 win on
the doubles court. over Jennifer Stevens and Emily Fraser of
Virginia.
Boonstra also advanced with a 6-2, 6-3 win over qualifier
Natasha Marks of Arizona.
"Those three were extremely resilient today and didn't let
anything phase them," UF women's associate head coach Dave
Balogh said. "It was probably one of the best days I've seen
from a Gator team in many many years."

He could struggle, though,

LSU's offensive line has al-
lowed 13 sacks through five
games, including six against
Georgia.
Assuming the offensive line
can keep Jefferson standing and
the defense can keep the Gators
out of the end zone, Tiger Sta-

of as one of the toughest places to
play.

"Uh, hey Tim," Meyer says nervously.

Meyer: "What Bible verse are you going

Tebow: "Oh, it's one of my favorites. It's

Meyer: "But I can't risk you getting hurt
again. If you go down on my watch, I'm done
for. I promise, just sit out tonight and I'll let
you run on every play against Arkansas."
Tebow pauses, then gives a lighthearted chuck-
le.
Tebow: "Coach, were you nervous about
telling me this? Don't worry about it. I'm fine
taking the night off. I know Johnny has it cov-

Meyer is visibly relieved. As he walks back out
into the hallway to tell Brantley the good news,
a hooded figure approaches and sneaks up behind


Brantley.
Meyer: "Dan? Is that you? What are you

The hood slips off, revealing Mississippi State
coach Dan Mullen. He pulls out a club, smacks
Brantley's knee and runs off down the i,;ll,..;I.

Tebow glares at Meyer for a moment, then
slips his helmet on and leads his teammates onto

Meyer: "Well, at least I don't have to give

To the best of our knowledge, Dan Mullen has
not been contracted for a hit on John Brantley.

LSU FOOTBALL

Scott moves back to RB


By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Staff Writer
kmalstr@alllgator org

Fullback isn't where senior Charles Scott
was supposed to be lining up four games
into LSU's season.
Yet the preseason All-Southeastern
Conference first-team running back selec-
tion found himself laying blocks for senior
Keiland Williams before being moved back
to his natural position against Georgia last
week.
Scott responded with 95 yards on 19 car-
ries and scored two touchdowns in the final
three minutes of the Tigers' 20-13 win against
the Bulldogs.
"He has a very strong game with or with-
out the ball," LSU coach Les Miles said.
"When the game is on the line, you can put
the ball in his hands. He runs with passion,
and he refused to go down on the last play."
The last play was a 33-yard bruising run
in which Scott ran through two defenders in
the hole at the line of scrimmage and broke
another tackle before getting into the end


zone for the game-winning score.
Last season, Scott rushed for over 1,000
yards and an SEC-high 18 touchdowns.
Florida defensive coordinator Charlie
Strong said Scott's running style isn't any-
thing the Gators haven't seen already.
"I don't think he really does anything dif-
ferent," Strong said. "He's similar to (Ten-
nessee running back Montario) Hardesty."
Hardesty gashed UF for 96 yards and a
touchdown on 20 carries in Week 3, though
Scott didn't enjoy similar success the last
time he faced the Gators.
UF's defense held Scott to 35 yards on 12
carries in a 51-21 win in The Swamp in 2008.
The last time the Gators went to Death
Valley, however, then-LSU running back Ja-
cob Hester had his way with UF's defense,
going off for 106 yards on 23 carries includ-
ing two fourth-and-1 conversions on the
game's final drive.
He would later cap off that drive by scor-
ing the go-ahead touchdown with just more
than one minute remaining to seal the Ti-
gers' 28-24 victory.


PICKS, from page 17


VT WILL WITHOUT A SHADOW OF A DOUBT COVER THE -13.5-POINT SPREAD BECAUSE ... BC
is about as untested as Derrick Rose. Unless you count the Golden Eagles' win against a
Volin-led ... I mean, Bobby Bowden-led FSU team. BC is yet to even play a ranked opponent,
nevermind beat one. VT, on the other hand, has won two out of three games against ranked
opponents, with its lone loss coming against No. 3 Alabama. Plus, Volin picked BC.
KYLE MAISTRI

Now, on to the picks!
Leading the pack of journalists with a 28-21 record is Mike "I feel too connected" DiFerdinan-
do, who recently made the switch to an iPhone and decided to read the Alligator on his phone's
Web browser rather than the print copy less than a foot away.
In second place with a 24-25 record is Mike "How many different kinds of alcohol did you say
are in a hand grenade?" McCall, who wants no part of our plans to bomb out on New Orleans'
most famous drink. If he can't handle a grenade, imagine what a Hurricane might do to him ...
Locked in a three-way tie for third at 23-26 is Ed "The youth of a nation" Aschoff, who di-
rectly contridicted our implications that golf doesn't exactly reach out to America's "hip-hop"
culture. To be fair, Ed also scored 120 out of 129 on the "Stuff White People Like" list, including
scarves, having gay friends and Juno.
In the middle of the manwich is Bobby "Enough with the short jokes" Callovi, who will be
buckled up in the back seat as per law on our trip to Baton Rouge. Luckily, his girlfriend is com-
ing along so we don't have to worry about keeping his bottle filled this weekend.
Moving into the top half of the table for the first time is Kyle "I meant to bubble 'F'" Maistri,
who forgot to answer a multiple-choice exam question despite no penalties for wrong answers.
In sixth place with a 22-27 record is Phil "I got stuff to do" Kegler, who should have cured
cancer, discovered new planets and won a Nobel Peace Prize considering how many times he
turns down social interactions. We suspect he's actually sitting around the apartment feeding his

knitting, pottery and quilting addictions.
First in a line of poor-performing "real" journalists with a 21-28 record is Jeremy "I wish I
were back at the Alligator" Fowler, whose life is so boring that he literally waits on this picks
column e-mail in the middle of the week. I guess having a wife and a job at a major newspaper
just isn't enough for some people.
Nipping at his heels with a 20-29 record is Mike "How do I reach these keeeds" DiRocco, who
thought it would be funny to flip off a couple of us while waiting at a stop light. He's no longer
our favorite grandpa.
After an epic fall from grace, in second-to-last place and also with a 20-29 record is Joe "Gator
Clause" Goodman, whose blog name makes him sound like a red-and-green-clad Albert.
And rounding out our collection of hard-working wordsmiths is Ben "Is being compared to
Bobby Bowden that bad?" Volin, who requested we leave out other similarities like involuntary
bowel movements, balding and a creepy old man affinity for co-eds.
