march against


nuclear plant

By CAROLYN TILLO
Alligator Writer

A three-headed pink flamingo, a witch and a fish were
among about 35 protesters who marched Wednesday in
downtown Gainesville to protest the proposed $14 billion
nuclear power plant about 50 miles from Gainesville in Levy
County.
The marchers were members of Sustainable Urban and
Rural Florida(SURF), a community group that favors using
alternative energy sources and opposes the plant's construc-
tion. They donned costumes as part of a "Nukes are Mon-
strous!" parade.
Accompanied by music from the Gainesville Radical
Ruckus Marching Band, the marchers paraded around the
Bo Diddley Community Plaza and walked through the
Farmers Market to the post office on Southeast First Avenue.
They dropped a handful of letters addressed to Progress En-
ergy and state representatives into a mailbox, with messages
encouraging them to rethink plans for the power plant.
Christian Hansen danced along with the group in his
pink flamingo costume. Hansen said his costume had three
heads because nuclear waste leaked into the estuary where
the flamingo fed.
He said nuclear waste works its way up the food chain
and creates health hazards, but power companies and nu-
clear regulation committees continue to push off these prob-

Commissioners, student groups promote politics on plaza


By BRANDON BRESLOW
Alligator Contributing Writer

Jacob Smith, president of
UF's Students for Change, spent
Wednesday morning under a tree
discussing health care.
A few yards away, Johnathan
Lott attempted to recruit students
to join the UF College Republi-
cans.
In the center of the Plaza of the
Americas, city and county commis-
sioners endured the heat to speak
with students
Student about local gov-
Government ernment.
The event,
Student Government's Politics on
the Plaza, aimed to help students
become politically involved.
Representatives from 25 UF
organizations attended the event,
some with conflicting beliefs, but
all with the same goal of increas-
ing political participation.
Lott, vice chairman of the UF
College Republicans, tried to at-
tract people to the organization's
meetings.
"We want students who are in-
volved to help us out with events
and discuss their ideas with us,"
he said.
Members of the UF College
Democrats, Students for Change
and Students for the Preservation
of Freedom gave students sugges-


tions about getting involved in the
health care debate, whether they
support the public option or not.
Gators for a Sustainable Cam-


pus and UF's chapters of Amnesty
International and ONE also had
representatives at the event.
"I wouldn't have known about

fWl s t.


all of these organizations if they
weren't together at one time," said
Rahkiah Brown, an English senior.

ers Lee Pinkoson, Rodney J. Long
and Paula DeLaney cleared up
common misconceptions about lo-
cal government and explained to
students why they should be in-
volved.
"It may not be as sexy as the
federal government, but noth-
ing pertains to the people here
more than the local government,"
Pinkoson said.
DeLaney explained zoning us-
ing a jigsaw puzzle and discussed
the importance of taxes in Alachua
County.
"I love being invited to speak
with UF students because I get to
explain what they get in return for
the money they spend locally," she
said.
Gainesville City Commissioner
Craig Lowe discussed his cam-
paign for mayor and the local elec-
tion in March.
Lowe told students to make
sure they are registered to vote in
Alachua County.
"Many students think that they
don't need to register with their lo-
cal addresses because they're only
going to be here for a few years,"
he said. "But I tell them to think of
it in terms of voting on behalf of
those after them."
The Alachua County Supervi-
sor of Elections and Chomp the
Vote registered people to vote and
gave out change of address forms.

High school entrepreneurs pitch proposals at Santa Fe


By JOEY FLECHAS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Alexis Oliver is the kind of person who
looks at a bottle cap and thinks of jewelry.
The 16-year-old Buchholz High School stu-
dent dreams of turning her fashion-conscious
approach to recycling into a flourishing busi-
ness where she can take old clothes, add new


materials and create one-of-a-kind garments.
She stood in front a panel of representa-
tives from local businesses Wednesday night
to pitch this idea with a PowerPoint presen-
tation and a confident smile. "I think I have a
really different idea," she said.
Oliver, along with six other Buchholz
students, took part in the inaugural venture
of Growing Entrepreneurs, a program that


brings together Santa Fe College's Center for
Innovation and Economic Development and
local private equity firm Ener-
Local gent Ventures.
SSix students, with one team
News of two, brought five business
proposals to the downtown
center in hopes of securing $500, training and
mentorship to get their businesses going.


The students are in the Academy of Entre-
preneurship, a magnet program at Buchholz.
The program seeks to foster an entrepre-
neurial spirit in Gainesville area students, a
spirit that Dug Jones, Santa Fe's assistant vice
president for economic development, says is
already prevalent in the city.
"This is the right kind of place for an inno-
vation community," Jones said.


Protesters marched to the post

lems.
"For 40 years they've been saying,
'Oh, by the time these plants get decom-
missioned, we'll solve this problem,'"
Hansen said. "They haven't."
Jack Davis, an associate professor of
history at UF, saw the protesters march-
ing. He said the proposition to build the
plant emphasizes that the state has no
sense of social responsibility.
"My 4-year-old daughter over here
is the one that's going to have to pay for
the mess they're gonna make," Davis
said.
Woody Blue, who held a sign saying
"Nuclear Energy Vampires Suck Our
Money and Never Die," said she has
been fighting nuclear power since the
1980s.
"Now we're back in the same old
place," Blue said. "We're still dealing
with the same old problems and doing
the same old things."


She said she supports conserving
energy and finding alternative energy
sources.
But Cherie Jacobs, Progress Energy
spokeswoman, emphasized the benefits
of nuclear energy.
"For 40 years they've been
saying, 'Oh, by the time these
plants get decommissioned,
we'll solve this problem.' They
haven't."
Christian Hansen
protester

"Nuclear power has no greenhouse
gas emissions and it's one of the most
environmentally friendly to produce
electricity," Jacobs said.
She said Progress Energy also relies
on coal, oil and natural gas for power.
Jacobs said the plant would be fund-
ed by a combination of stocks, bonds
and cash flow from customers.

Florida tuition still among lowest in US


Sake Cafe opens


on Archer Road


By ASHLYN POWELL
Alligator Contributing Writer

Gainesville is feeding its
appetite for Japanese cuisine
with the opening of another
sushi restaurant.
Sake Caf6 opened on Oct.
22 on Archer Road. Despite
being the new kid in town
amid an economic recession,
business is booming, said
general manager Mark Nev-
ins.
"Business has been a lot
better than I thought it would
be," he said. "From noon un-
til 1:30 p.m., it is crowded
from the lunch rush."
The new restaurant faces


competition from similar
businesses nearby such as
Rolls 'n Bowls and Sushi
Matsuri Japanese Restaurant,
both of which are located
less than a mile
Local away from Sake
News Caf6.
To separate
itself from the competition,
Sake Caf6 infuses different
cuisines, Nevins said.
"We offer Japanese food
and we are also going to have
a Chinese menu," he said.
"People can get the best of
both worlds."
Sake Caf6 is located at
3100 Archer Road and is open
from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.


PREPAID, from page 1

UF freshman Ajla Fatkic has a
Florida Prepaid plan. She moved
to the U.S. from Bosnia when she
was 4 years old. She said her dad
knew tuition would increase but
wanted her to go to college.
"His biggest thing was he
wanted his kids to have the
American dream," Fatkic said.
She questioned whether the
increase in the plan was worth


Ruth Harris, the associate
controller for University Finan-
cial Services, said she does not
think the plan's increase in price
will deter many families from
purchasing prepaid plans. She
said families that want to pur-
chase the plans and have the
ability to do so will continue to
participate in the program.
"The beauty of this whole
thing is you're still paying to-


day's costs for tomorrow's pric-
es," Harris said.
She said some families may
find it harder to afford the plan
after the increase, especially giv-
en the state of the economy.
However, Harris said UF re-
mains a low-cost institution.
Edmonds agreed. He said UF
still has the third-lowest tuition
and fees in the country, with
only Wyoming and Louisiana
charging less.


Texts previously delivered in under 6 minutes


TEXT, from page 1
Students surveyed for the article generally reported
getting the e-mails much earlier than the texts.
Even though the company has overseen two unsat-
isfactory tests so far, Orlando said UF is still willing to
give the company a chance.
"There's certainly got to be some point at which we
say, 'OK, this is not working out,'" he said. "I don't
think we're there yet."
In the last test of the system in August, it took more
than an hour for some people to get texts.
That was the first test with ConnectED, which has a
$33,000-a-year contract with UF.


In tests with previous providers, messages were
sent out in less than six minutes, according to Kenneth
Allen, UF's emergency manage-
ment coordinator.
That doesn't include the time it
took the messages to reach individ-
ual phones, however.
That process can add a little
more time, Allen said, and varies
among cell phone carriers.
Orlando Jonathan Tillett, a UF computer
engineering junior who received
his text at 12:23 p.m., said he was disappointed with
Wednesday's test run.

Closed Doors

AGH closure is

good business, bad call

S hands HealthCare is closing the doors at AGH on Nov.
1, citing persistent financial losses and the weakened
economy. In recent years, these annual losses have
climbed to more than $12 million.
Even with the impending closure, the Shands at AGH
Web site still reads: "People throughout the region count
on Shands AGH for their families' healthcare." This is
true; many of the low-income residents of east Gainesville
rely on charity-care services offered by AGH.
All told, the Shands HealthCare System provided more
than $115 million of charity care in 2008. While this is ad-
mirable, Shands is cutting off access to those in need by
moving many charity services out of the area.
A clear sign of how desperately east Gainesville re-
quires additional health care facilities not fewer is
the 2008 Alachua County Health Report Card. The east
Gainesville area scored lowest in almost every category,
spanning health, education and income.
When looking at STD rates among this population, the
statistics are shocking. Compared to people in neighbor-
ing areas, those in east Gainesville are more than three
times as likely to have sexually transmitted infections, and
almost four times as likely to have HIV.
This area also claims the lowest birth weights and high-
est infant mortality rate, four times higher here than in
other areas of Gainesville.
By losing maternity and obstetric services to the Shands
facilities on Archer Road, many will find it increasingly
difficult to get "early and regular care," which the Shands
Web site says is "essential to ensure a healthy pregnan-
cy."
This care may be essential, but unfortunately it is un-
profitable.
Shands CEO Timothy Goldfarb has said closing AGH
was a business decision, albeit a difficult one. AGH must
close to prevent future deficits for Shands.
Not-so-coincidentally, the same day that AGH closes,
Shands Cancer Hospital will open its doors. Cancer treat-
ment is expensive and highly lucrative, especially when
compared to providing basic health care services to low-
income neighborhoods.
Hats off to Gainesville's finest businessman.
But for the roughly 54,000 residents of east Gainesville,
this difficult business decision will have sweeping con-
sequences. Rates of treatable STDs, infant mortality and
homicide deaths (also higher here than anywhere else in
Gainesville) will increase as east Gainesville's intensive
care unit disappears.
Depriving this community of basic services will hinder
economic growth, encourage crime and hurt the city as a
whole.
While a wave of violent crime (and subsequent hospi-
talizations) might provide a short-term boon for Mr. Gold-
farb's bottom line, in the long run, Shands, UF and the city
will benefit from a healthier population and stable neigh-
borhoods.
Accomplishing this with dwindling resources will be
a challenge, but hopefully Mr. Goldfarb will see value in
redirecting some of the tens of millions in "savings" from
AGH's closing back into the community.
Because at some point, health care for those in need
must take precedence over earnings.
OK, we know that last part was a long shot. But at the
very least, we hope that the health of all Gainesville resi-
dents will factor a little more into Mr. Goldfarb's difficult
business decisions.

Letters to the Editor
Editorial misrepresents ordinance
The Alligator has vented its outrage
over the city adhering to its 130-meals
limit for St. Francis House; now for
some facts.
The city ordinance does not lim-
it the number of people St. Francis
House can feed. It simply limits the
number of meals that can be handed
out on the St. Francis House property.
There are many other spaces that I'm
sure the city would support via special
permit, perhaps as close as the Court-
house parking lot on the corner oppo-
site St. Francis house.
I'm not sure where the idea that
being poor, homeless and/or hungry
trumps public safety, property own-
ers' rights and the enforcing of laws
and ordinances.
The government is responsible for
helping and protecting all the people,
not just the select few who are most
vocal.
If the issue involved enforcing oth-
er ordinances, such as those protecting
the Alligator distribution boxes from
damage and theft, the Editorial Board
would have a slant far different from
"Whose property rights is the commis-
sion concerned about?"
When Thanksgiving and Christmas
come, I wonder where the outraged
Alligator editorialists and cartoonists
will be: Helping (anywhere) to feed
and care for the homeless and hun-
gry, or sitting down to their nice, safe,
warm, bountiful tables?
Jim Austin
Gainesville resident



Home Depot to 'rot in hell'
I read your editorial about the
Okeechobee man fired from Home De-


pot for wearing his patriotic/religious
pin. I can't believe it.
I called Home Depot to say how
outraged I am and that I will not shop
at their stores anymore.
In the scheme of life, it is ridiculous
to fire someone over something so
mundane. They accept our dollar bills
that say "In God We Trust." They are
going to rot in hell for being so mean-
spirited.
I thank you for that article. I really
had to call the home office to see if the
article was true because I was so out-
raged.
Josephine Gebhardt
Rochester, N.Y Resident



Editorial Board misses point
Should a Home Depot employee
be allowed to wear a button reading,
"One nation under God"? This is the
wrong question to ask. By claiming
that Trevor Keezor's button didn't
have a "patently offensive phrase" be-
cause it's a quote from the Pledge of
Allegiance, the Editorial Board misses
the point.
Requiring citizens to pledge al-
legiance to a nation "under God" of-
fends the principles upon which our
country was founded. Those two
words weren't in the original pledge
from 1892 but were added during the
Red Scare of the early 1950s, when the
officially atheist Soviet Union became
a threat to national security.
Since then, our political climate has
improved, and so should our mindset
toward our fellow Americans who
exercise their right not to believe in
gods.

Nation still devoted to consuming


may or may not be the vegan mentioned in
Wednesday's column, "Being eco-friendly isn't
always easy." Regardless, I think to view the
carbon footprint exercise as a demonstration of the
futility of lifestyle choices is way off the mark.
I found my own calculation staggering. Even if
everyone were vegan and didn't drive, we'd still
need two Earths to sustain us. This only clarified
that America's problem is a systemic one one
that will not be solved by clotheslines alone.
There is certainly a trade-off between mak-
ing time to prepare homemade, locally-produced
meals or using those hours to make money at
work. There is a trade-off between biking to school
and getting a few extra minutes of sleep.
But are Americans better off when they choose


Lindsey Mills to work more and exercise
Speaking Out less? For me, at least, the
answer is no.
If personal change can
lower the number of theoretical "Earths" we need
to survive from the average American's 5.3 to 2,
perhaps a shift away from our current obsession
with consumption would allow us to maintain a
lifestyle that could be replicated worldwide and
leave us with the one planet we've got still intact.
To say that it is preferable to buy new clothes
every day, rather than set aside a single Sunday af-
ternoon to erect a simple clothesline and dip one's
clothes onto it, reveals just how devoted to this ail-
ing nation's principles many people remain.

SPOTLIGHT: Matt Kurz One Civic Media

HEADLINER: The Methadones The Venue @ 6 p.m.
Born out of '80s punk heroes Screeching Weasel, the
Methadones keep a straight forward pop punk model,

For a Sunday afternoon, this set will see a decent
turnout.

SPOTLIGHT: Defiance, OH The Kickstand @ 10:30 p.m.
Another folk punk outfit worth seeing, Defiance will
play a late show on both Saturday and Sunday night. If
you're going to Fest, you have no excuse to miss them.

Chicago-based band releases new album, starts tour


By MARY MANCHESS
avenue writer


With their new album, "Geneva,"
released just a little more than a
week ago, the Russian Circles have
already gassed up their 16-passen-
ger van and kicked it into high gear.
It has been about three to four
years since the Chicago-based band
has performed at The Fest, Gaines-
ville's legendary three-day concert
series that is known to attract music
lovers worldwide.
The trio will play Friday night at
Common Grounds. Doors open at 5
p.m., and tickets are $20 without a


Fest 8 pass.
The band's new album has re-
ceived great reviews from many crit-
ics in the music industry, including
Alternative Press and NME. Guitarist
Mike Sullivan said these reactions
have been a breath of fresh air.
"You write music for yourself, but
God knows how people are going to
react to it," he said.
Now that the production of the
album is behind them, the band just
needs to focus on keeping a high en-
ergy throughout its hectic tour sea-
son that will last until mid-December.
Sullivan said that the band didn't ex-
actly plan for so many things to hap-


pen at once, but everything was coin-
cidentally just thrown into place.
Life on the road can be difficult in
some aspects, like
when it comes to
getting a decent
amount of sleep
or a good meal.
But Sullivan said
he enjoys tour-
ing a lot because
everything is so
Sullivan methodical; plus,
coffee always
seems to hold him through.
"I feel more comfortable on tour
than being at home because of lack


of privacy and everything," he said.
"Every day is a new adventure. I love
being in the country, and I love driv-
ing, so every drive is enjoyable to me,
thankfully."
He is especially lookingforward to
performing at music festivals, such
as The Fest 8 and the Fun Fun Fun
Fest in Austin, Texas, because it's a
chance to take a short break from
the typical touring routine.
"On tour you see the same bands
every night, and with festivals it's a
good change of pace to say hi to your
friends, step back and enjoy a con-
cert, not just play it," he said. "[The
Fest 8] especially is very diverse, and


there are a ton of people so it makes
for hilarious people-watching."
Another reason touring is so excit-
ingforthe Russian Circles is because
the band members are highly enthu-
siastic about giving off energetic live
performances. Sullivan explained
that the band is very meticulous
about the technicalities that go into
its shows.
"It is just fun to go up there and
grow from our previous experiences,
keep doing what we are doing and
see how it progresses," he said. "We
are tighter and stronger as a band,
and it's been awhile, so we are ready
for it."


Ghost tour reveals past


By JON SILMAN
avenue writer


The idea of letting actors loose after hours
in their own playhouse is enticingand inspired.
The Hippodrome GhostTour started at 10:30
p.m. last Thursday. A group of us (a young mar-
ried couple and some Hipp employees) were
led upstairs into what looked like a dance re-
hearsal room. We sat in chairs for about 10
minutes, wondering. A door that looked like
it belonged in an Old West bank from a Clint
Eastwood movie opened slowly and Rusty
Sailing, a seasoned actor, shuffled out precari-
ously. He was bearded and dressed in all black.
He moved cautiously but fancifully around
us like a modern Vincent Price. He warned
that people have a tendency to get locked in
the vault, so try your best stay away from it.
The legend goes like this: In 1914, Clem-
ent Boyle, a young man, may or may not have
committed a murder. From his cell in the
depths of the Hippodrome, he wrote a heart-
felt letter to his mother, Lucinda. The letter
begged her to help him, for he was facing
death by hanging. A makeshift gallows was
constructed in the courtyard for the purpose
of the dastardly deed. The mother made the


difficult journey by train, over thousands of
miles, to Gainesville only to find out her son
had been hanged the day before. Distraught
and overwhelmed with emotion, she went
insane. She still haunts the Hipp to this day.
We were led around a dark hallway to the
women's restroom where she sometimes can
be heard weeping. Sitting on the playhouse
floor in pitch black is unnerving. The basement
of the Hippodrome is wide and open. Dark
spaces take on new meanings late at night
under the right circum-
Only in stances. Sailing sold
a us on the story and fed
us morsels of it crumb
by crumb leading up to
the frightening "reveal" at the end of the tour.
The highlight of the eveningincludes gettingto
seethe innerworkings ofthe Hippodrome eleva-
tor room in the basement, which resembles an
electricity room for an electricchair, 1920s style.
Accordingto Sailing, this is the tour's second
year. He's been with the Hipp since its inception
in 1973, but he swears he was 5 atthetime and
playing children's roles. When I ask for his age,
hetells me he's "old enough to do a ghosttour."
Since he is the mastermind behind the
whole production, I am inclined to agree.


Ten Tenors to play UF


By JOEY FLECHAS
avenue writer

The Three Tenors used to dominate the
ever-so competitive tenor scene.
Now, The Ten Tenors are emerging to
break through and take their onslaught of
voice to the world.
The Australian group is performing at
the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts
Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.
The Ten Tenors formed in 1995 at the
Queensland Conservatorium Griffith Univer-
sity in Brisbane, Australia. Ten opera stu-
dents got together to occasionally perform
and make a little extra money.
The group sings songs from all eras and
genres, from opera to pop ballads to rock
'n' roll classics.
Current cast member Jeff Teale, who
goes by "Teals" on stage, said performing
around the world has been an extremely re-
warding experience.
"Different songs work in different coun-


tries," he said.
Having toured the world, he said South
America was one of the most pleasant to
visit. The group played a show in Lima,
Peru, where apparently tenormania had
taken over. Crowds of screaming fans sur-
rounded the group's car, with police having
to escort the tenors around.
"We'd never experi-
Senced an audience so
welcoming," he said.
The Ten Tenors' dis-
tinctAustralian accents
lend some unique per-
sonality to the show,
Teale said.
His favorite song to perform is Simon
and Garfunkel's "The Boxer," a crowd fa-
vorite.
"It's the moment where we take their
breath away," he said.
Tuesday's performance will kick off their
U.S. tour in support of their latest album of
disparate musical stylings, "Nostalgica."

Trends are perfect for


last-minute costumes


By REBEKAH GEIER
avenue writer

"I wish I could pull it off" is an in-
famous quote we all wish we could
avoid, regarding clothing that you lust
for, only it doesn't seem to fit your per-
sonal style.
Well what better occasion than
Halloween, a day to shake off all your
fashion inhibitions and literally wear
whatever you want.
Rather than using Halloween as an
excuse to wear that slutty costume you
pulled out of a $60 plastic bag, buy
something you would normally over-
look.
Mix and match fashionable pieces
from stores like Forever 21 with cos-
tume accessories from party stores,
or channel fashion trends into a cos-
tume.
For last-minute costume ideas,
think about today's trendy pieces and
how they are inspired after real-life
characters. Like leather and studs, in-
spired by rock stars and biker babes.
Or fake, thick-brimmed glasses in-
spired by nerds everywhere.
Last Halloween, I was Blair Waldorf


from "Gossip Girl." I admired her style
on the show, but figured I could never
wear her rich schoolgirl wardrobe, red
lipstick and skyscraper heels to my
morning class in Turlington--- It just
wasn't my style. So I satisfied my prep-
py fad and went to Forever 21 where I
found a navy blazer, red headband and
bright red tights to compliment Blair's
signature pop of color. Miss Waldorf
would be ashamed if she knew I pulled
off her Upper East Side look for less
than $60. And the best part about my
"costume" was that I could rewear ev-
ery piece.
Halloween is that opportunity to
experiment with beauty and fashion
trends, so tease the hell out of your
hair or paint the perfect smoky eye.
And when you buy something new
don't you want to get full use out of
it? So pick up that killer jacket you've
been eying, make it part of your cos-
tume, then throw it on before a partyto
spice up your ensemble. Because re-
ally, where else will you be able to wear
your naughty nurse dress?
To see what costume I am putting
together this year, check out the Alliga-
tor Web site after Halloween!

UF prepares to face SEC's top receiver


By MIKE McCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alligatororg

Florida cornerback Joe Haden couldn't tell you much about the
nuances of Georgia's offense or quarterback Joe Cox's playing style.
Normally, that would be pretty alarming to hear three days be-
fore a major rivalry matchup, but for the strategy the Gators' defense
will use Saturday against the Bulldogs, he only needs to know about
one player: receiver A.J. Green.
"I've just been watching A.J.," Haden said.
Haden said he has watched more film on Green than any wide-
out in the past two hours each day since Sunday spending little
time studying the rest of UGA's offense.
That's because the Gators believe stopping Green means shut-
ting down the Bulldogs altogether. Green (41 catches, 682 yards, six
touchdowns) leads the Southeastern Conference in receptions and
receiving yards per game, and he has twice as many catches and
more than three times as many yards as any other UGA receiver.
On a team ranked last in the SEC for rushing offense, that makes
Green the only real threat.
"He's the guy we need to stop," Haden said. "I
know [Brandon Spikes], [Carlos Dunlap] and every-
body are going to stop the run, so they're going to
Football have to resort to the pass."
Haden and Janoris Jenkins will both spend time
covering Green on their respective sides of the field,
though Haden said Green lines up on Jenkins' side more often.
He likens Green to LSU wideouts Brandon LaFell and Terrance
Toliver, only better.
"He has proven time and time again what he can do when the
ball is in the air," Cox said. "You have to find ways to get the ball
in his hands, even if it's handing him a reverse or throwing him a
screen. You have to be creative getting him the ball because a lot of
teams account for him."
The running game is a pretty big mismatch on paper, as Florida
will put the SEC's second-best run defense against a Georgia squad
averaging just 108 rushing yards per game. Richard Samuel entered
the year as the starter and looked to pose a formidable one-two
punch along with Caleb King, but neither has fared well.
Samuel carried the load in the first three games, gaining 256 yards
on 51 carries, but he has 79 yards on 26 carries in four contests since.
Those first three performances alone are enough to make him the
team's leading rusher, with King (35 carries, 135 yards) and Washaun
Ealey (31 carries, 122 yards) next in line.
The disappointment of the running game sums up the season so

catches and receiving yards per game.
far for the Bulldogs (4-3, 3-2 SEC), and while Florida will be trying to
clinch the SEC East on Saturday, they just want to get back on track.
"Obviously, for the goals we set for this season, we're not happy
with where we are," Cox said. "The good thing is, we had our off
week, and now it's like we have a second half of the season we can
focus on and try to finish up strong. We just want to right some of the
things that have gone wrong."

Alligator Writer

As the NBA season begins, the Gators
will have two fewer fans in attendance at
the O'Connell Center.
During the offseason, Boston Celt-
ics coach Doc Rivers and Atlanta Hawks
coach Mike Woodson could often be spot-
ted together cheering on their daughters,
junior opposite hitter Callie Rivers and
freshman outside hitter Mariah Wood-
son.


But now that basketball season has
begun, they can't attend their daughters'
matches anymore.
"It's not as much as
both of them probably
would like, but they
come as much as they
can," Rivers said.
However, it has not
Rivers stopped them from
keeping track of No. 10
Florida's (16-3, 10-2 Southeastern Confer-
ence) matches.
"My dad just told me that he had the


Hawks watch our game this past Friday
against Arkansas in the locker room before
they went out to play," Woodson said.
Doc and Mike have been friends for a
long time, but thanks to their daughters,
their friendship has gotten even stronger
recently.
"They aren't enemies. People might
think they hate each other, but that's not
the case," Woodson said. "They are actu-
ally very good friends, and the fact that
Callie and I play together helps their re-
lationship."

through first


half of games
Iwas fooled.
See, four weeks ago, I wrote
this column about how there
were three great teams in college
football, and I was trying to figure
out who was the fourth best team in
the country.
I saw Florida, Alabama and Texas
as far and above anyone else.
Losses by
any other team
didn't deserve
to be called up-
sets. Turns out,
fourweekslater,
Phil Kegler that statement
Phil on the Hill is still true. But
now it seems
pkegler@allgator org n w i
even those
three don't de-
serve to be called great teams.
Instead, there are no elite teams in
college football this year.
Sounds ridiculous, right? It's the
truth.
Somehow, someway, the 2009
college football season became full of
parity and lacking in greatness.
Coming off the 2008 season and
a great title game matchup of Okla-
homa and Florida, everyone thought
2009 would be great. Stars were com-
ing back, and as great as last season
was, this year would be even better.
It's been a pretty big letdown so
far.
The Gators might have one of the
best defenses in recent years, but as
a whole, they might not be the best
team in the Southeastern Confer-
ence. Tim Tebow is struggling with
the pressure and is playing some of
his worst games as a Gator.
Alabama just scored all of its
points against Tennessee via field
goals. Quarterback Greg McElroy
has come back down to Earth after
dominating earlier in the year. The
Crimson Tide were looking hard to
beat, but a one-sided offense will get
shut down eventually.
Colt McCoy and Texas have
looked like shells of their former

NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE

Rookie Freeman will get start for Bucs after bye week


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

TAMPA The winless Tampa
Bay Buccaneers have changed start-
ing quarterbacks again, with rookie
Josh Freeman taking over.
Freeman was the 17th pick in
the first round of this year's draft.
He made his NFL debut last Sun-
day, playing two series in the fourth


quarter of a 35-7 loss to the New
England Patriots in London.
"It's definitely something I've
been working toward. It's finally go-
ing to be great to get an opportunity
to step out there and do something,"
the former Kansas State standout
said Wednesday.
"My mind-set right now is to
prepare the best I can and then go
out and do what I do, which is play


football and try to
find a way to get
a win."
CoachRaheem
Morris was non-
commital about
his quarterback
plans after Free-
man completed
two of four passes for 16 yards and
was sacked twice for 16 yards in


losses during his brief stint against
New England.
Morris officially made the change
when the team practiced for the first
time since returning from London.
"He's been waiting for his time
patiently, but he's used his time
wisely," said Morris, who has main-
tained from the day Freeman was
drafted that he will not rush the
21-year-old's development.


"The plan bringing him in here
was let him sit behind a vet. Hope-
fully, the vet will get you a bunch of
wins, but that didn't happen.... He's
earned the right. He's went into the
lab, he's done the extra studying,
he's done the extra preparation."
The Bucs (0-7) have a bye this
week, so Freeman will have extra
time to prepare for his first start
Nov. 8 at home against Green Bay.


Woodson didn't like


hoops growing up

VOLLEYBALL, from page 17

In return, the tie between their fathers has also
helped Rivers and Woodson become close off the
court, and it even helped Woodson in her decision
to become a Gator.
On her recruiting trip to UF, she gravitated to-
ward Rivers and the relationship she had with her al-
lowed Woodson to feel comfortable in Gainesville.
"Basically when she came here I just told her this
was a great place to be and if I could go back in time
I wouldn't change my decision, I am happy that I
came here," Rivers said.
Although their fathers are both NBA head
Coaches and they are both part of
the same volleyball team, the simi-
larities between them stop there.
Growing up, Rivers admitted
Volleyball she was a "tomboy" as she grew up
with four brothers and played bas-
ketball, soccer and volleyball. But Woodson, on the
other hand, enjoyed cheerleading and volleyball
while despising basketball.
"I loved cheering to be honest, even though I
am like six-feet tall," Woodson said. "Basketball, I
looked at as being gross. I don't know why. I just
thought it wasn't feminine enough."
In a one-on-one basketball game they agreed
Callie would win without a doubt.
But the answer wasn't so clear when they were
asked which father would win when the Celtics and
the Hawks go up against each other on Nov. 13.
On that same day the Gators will be busy play-
ing one of their most important matches of the sea-
son against LSU that same night, so the bragging
will have to wait at least until after the match.

selves, even though this weekend's match-
up at Oklahoma State looks to be the final
test to an undefeated regular season.
This season's results have been shock-
ing. Not knowing what to expect can be a
good thing, but at some point, we all want
to see a good college football game.
McCoy has eight interceptions already
this season, equal to the number he finished
with after the 2008 season. Tebow already
has eight total turnovers four picks, four
fumbles more than he has ever had in
any one full season.
Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford
(injured shoulder) and Oklahoma State
wide receiver Dez Bryant (ruled ineligible)
are worried about readying themselves for
the NFL Draft instead of making highlight-
reel plays on Saturdays.
The lack of standout performers has
reared its head in projections for the Heis-
man Trophy. There is no frontrunner for
the award. It seems every contender has
flaws.
The last six weeks of the season will
certainly be interesting but not nearly for
reasons I would have thought.
There are five undefeated teams left in
the six BCS conferences Florida, Ala-
bama, Texas, Cincinnati and Iowa.
Obviously the SEC title game will allow
a maximum of four to finish unscathed, but
would these teams be great? Who would
be left out of the title game? Does Texas get
the nod because it got slighted last year?
Four weeks from now, the college foot-
ball season will be nearing completion. I
just hope it seems lot more exciting then.

SEC cracks down on criticism of officials


By BOBBY CALLOVI
Alligator Staff Writer
bcallovi@alllgator org

In the last two weeks, three Southeast-
ern Conference coaches have been repri-
manded by the league for making negative
comments about the referees.
Arkansas' Bobby Petrino and Mississippi
State's Dan Mullen spoke about what they
believed to be blown calls after their losses
to Florida, and Tennessee's Lane Kiffin com-
plained after his team's loss to Alabama.
Vanderbilt coach Bobby Johnson doesn't
remember a year where there were so many
controversies with the referees.
"You have bad calls every year, but they
are magnified because of the replay system,
the amount of games we have television all
the time and everybody sees them," Johnson
said during the SEC coaches teleconference
Wednesday.
Mullen's grievance stemmed from the
refs not overturning Dustin
SDoe's touchdown to a fumble
recovered by the Bulldogs af-
ter reviewing the play.
While the replay system
has been met with complaints, Johnson is
happy with the system in place but admits
it is flawed.
"It works as well as humanly possible.
People are going to make mistakes, but
when you've got the number of cameras we
have with the television exposure we have
and you have a chance to run it slow and
look at it, it gives us a chance to correct the
obviously wrong call," Johnson said. "When
they are so close that you can't tell, you just
can't argue with it."

EARLYSIGNING DAY: With recruits de-
committing late becoming a more frequent
practice, talks about an early signing day
have picked up steam around the nation.
LSU coach Les Miles is in favor of imple-
menting an early signing date to lock in com-
mits before February as long as it doesn't
affect the current calendar in place for the
recruiting process.
"What I have always said is you have an
early signing day," Miles said. "Currently,


we have a bunch of guys committed to us.
We're committing to them and they are
committed to us. They should have the op-
portunity to solidify that in December or late
November.
"If the decision is already made, why ex-
tend the decision signing day to February?"

KIFFIN KEEPING QUIET: In his first year as
Tennessee's head coach, Kiffin has been ruf-
fling people's feather with some of his com-
ments and attacks on other SEC coaches.
Kiffin, whose recent comments about refs
caused him to be reprimanded by the SEC,


may be turning over a new leaf. When asked
Wednesday about his thoughts on the replay
system, Kiffin chose not to comment.
"I'm really not getting into that. I'm go-
ing to stay away from that," Kiffin said.
He repeated that sentiment when asked
if he felt he was treated similarly by the con-
ference as other coaches.
"I'm moving on from last week," Kiffin
said. "I'm not getting into conversations
about it and whether I feel we have been
treated different than Florida or Alabama or
Nick Saban or Urban Meyer, so I'm going to
stay away from it."

* STAMPER HAS OBTAINED
ABOUT 20 TICKETS.

By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Staff Writer
kmalstr@alllgator org

Florida linebacker Ryan Stamper
is about to break a record he set a
season ago.
The Jacksonville native has been
stock-piling tickets to this Saturday's
Florida-Georgia game since this sea-
son began, and he's now up to 19 or
20 total tickets for family and friends,
breaking his unofficial record of 17.
"I know me, (Brandon) Hicks
and (Tim) Tebow do (talk about the
game). All three of us being from
Jacksonville. They told me this is
their favorite game, this is really my
favorite game too," Stamper said.
"Just coming home to the home team,
and playing in front of the fans and
trying to get as many tickets as you
can. They say I had the Florida-Geor-
gia ticket record last year, I'm about
to break that record this year."
Each player is allotted four tickets
to each game, and Stamper always
starts trading for Florida-Geor-
gia tickets early on. This year, he
swapped his LSU tickets for senior
wide receiver David Nelson's tickets
to this weekend's game.


Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen was reprimanded by the SEC for criticizing of-
ficials. Mullen felt Dustin Doe's interception return should've been ruled a fumble.

UF WOMEN'S GOLF

Gators conclude fall slate with second-place finish


By KELSIE HOECHERL
Alligator Writer
The Florida women's golf team must have
really liked where the men wrapped up their
season.
A day after the men's team finished its sea-
son with a second-place effort in Orlando, the
women concluded their fall 2009 season with
a runner-up finish at the Las Vegas Collegiate
Showdown on Wednesday.
All of the Gators competitors finished in
the top 20 at the tournament.
The squad shot the lowest score Wednes-
day with a nine-over 297. It carded a total of
883 (289-297-297, +19).
"We played a really great round today,"
coach Jan Dowling said. "We played through
some tough conditions today, and we had
the lowest round of the day today which was


pretty fantastic. We had a great run at it to-
day. We are going to use it as motivation, get
ourselves through the winter and work hard
to get into contention in the spring. It's a good
finish to our fall."
Florida was just five strokes behind first-
place Arizona, which totaled 14 over (284-294-
300, 878).
Freshman Isabelle Lendl led UF for the
second straight round this tournament. She
ended in a tie for sixth with a 54-hole score of
220 (73-72-75, +4). Her last round of the tour-
nament was her highest thus far. Going into
the final three holes, Lendl was one-over par
and went on to tally a double bogey, a bogey
and a birdie.
"She had two great tournaments in a row
and great plays," Dowling said. "She is think-
ing really well on the golf course and making
good decisions...I am really proud of the way


she played."
Lendl has had a top-10 finish in both of the
tournaments she has competed in this sea-
son.
"She has been doing really well for us this
week," Jensen said. "She
Same on strong and really
played solid; she's helped
us a lot. She brought posi-
tive energy and she is great
to have on the team."
Freshman Amelia Lewis
and junior Jessica Yadloc-
Lendl zky tied for 11th place with
a three-round score of 222
(+6). Yadloczky carded a two-over 74 in her fi-
nal round with three birdies and five bogeys.
Lewis matched her Tuesday score in the
final round with a three-over 75. She went
two-under on her first eight holes and col-


elected two more birdies, five bogeys and one
double bogey.
Sophomore Marika Lendl had the best fin-
ish of her career Wednesday, tying for 14th
place. She carded a 223 (73-74-76, +7).
Sophomore Evan Jensen finished just one
stroke behind Marika with a 224 (75-76-73,
+8), which translated into a tie for 17th place.
"We were a little let down, we all knew
that we were right there in the middle of the
competition, through out the round, so it was
a little bit of a let down to find out we lost by
a few," Jensen said. "But, it shows that we can
be in contention and we really persevered to-
day and played through the rough weather
and stayed patient. I think it is a good show of
what we can do."
The Gators will start up again in February
at the Northrop Grumman Regional Chal-
lenge.

A Friend Dies.


Who Cares?


RE WAC BAND


Toxic drinking is an epidemic on campuses all across America.
It means consuming so much alcohol the drinker passes out. But while"sleeping it off," the victim may be quietly dying.
When you come right down to it, students themselves are the best ones to tackle this problem.
So, in growing numbers, Stony Brook students have joined together in the Red Watch Band movement.
Working with experts, they fine-tuned a course in techniques to handle these alcohol emergencies. Red Watch Band
members can act fast, when every second counts.They know the quick steps they can take to rescue a passed-out
student from a drinking death, and can immediately summon professional help. Everyone completing the course is
given the distinctive red watch for identification.


Since its inception at Stony Brook University in March 2009, approximately 40 schools
across the country have signed on to implement this lifesaving program.
