With just one more touch-
down run, Florida quar-
terback Tim Tebow will
overtake Herschel Walker as the all-
time Southeastern Conference lead-
er in career rushing touchdowns.
The Heisman Trophy winner will
not only have the chance to do it in
his hometown of Jacksonville but
also against Walker's former team.
If Tebow breaks the record in
Jacksonville Municipal Stadium
against Georgia (4-3, 3-2), the result
could be met with criticism.
Until 2002, the NCAA did not
count bowl statistics and decided
not to retroactively include them, so
Walker's postseason success is not
accounted for in his 49 career touch-
downs.
In three bowl games, Walker
rushed for five touchdowns to bring
his actual total up to 54.
Another knock on Tebow if he


an


obtains the record will be that he
needed four years to do it, and
Walker accomplished his feat in
only three years before bolting for
the professional level.
While everyone would have ex-
pected the reigning Heisman Tro-
phy winner to make the natural
transition to the well-established
NFL, Walker surprised everyone
with his next move.
In 1983, the NFL didn't allow col-
legiate players to forgo their senior
seasons in order to pursue a draft
selection and subsequent contract
in the NFL.
Walker made the decision to leave
Georgia early anyway and signed a
contract with the USFL, which had
only been in existence for a year.
The all-time SEC great went on
to play for the New Jersey Generals
until 1985, when he moved to the
Dallas Cowboys of the NFL after
financial hardship struck the fledg-
ling USFL.
Walker went on to a fairly un-
impressive NFL career, spanning


narrilsonu uiamon. / Hlllga r Saniii
UF quarterback Tim Tebow needs only one more rushing touchdown to
surpass Herschel Walker and become the SEC's all-time leader.


roughly a decade, and Tebow has
brought a lot of attention back to the
former Bulldogs star.
Despite the possible complaints,
unless the NCAA changes the rule,
Tebow's next touchdown will put
him ahead of the legend
"It has been an honor to even be
mentioned with Herschel. It is very
humbling and I'm sure when I sit
back and think about I'll realize how
cool it is," Tebow said. "To be able
to break the record against Georgia
would be extra special."
Overtaking the career rushing
touchdown record will just be an-
other notch on the belt of Tebow's
illustrious career.
He already broke the SEC record
for most total touchdowns with 124
this season, surpassing former Gator
Danny Wuerffel.
Another record on his mantle is
the career SEC passing efficiency at
170.19.
Tebow already has a record of
doing pretty well against Georgia
In 2007, he threw for 236 yards
and a touchdown as well as running
for two more touchdowns.
Last season, he completed 10 of
13 passes for 154 yards and a touch-
down and added 39 yards and three
touchdowns on the ground.
In Tebow's last game against the
Bulldogs, he will have more on his
mind than just breaking Walker's
record.
The No. 1 Gators (7-0, 5-0) will
look to improve their poor perfor-
mances in the red zone after empha-
sizing it in practice all week.
UF has scored touchdowns on
just seven of its 25 trips into the red
zone against conference opponents.
"Offensively we have to do a
better job in some areas," UF coach
Urban Meyer said.
"Third downs we were not good.
Red zone production, we usually do
it on Wednesday, we are going to do
it earlier this week. We just need to
improve."
Although the team has struggled
inside its opponents' 20-yard line,
when the ball gets down to the goal
line, Tebow has been just as good as
he has been since he arrived at UF.
The senior has scored five of his
six touchdowns on runs of less than
5 yards, and it only took one attempt
to punch it in on all of those runs.
He did not have as much success
last week against Mississippi State,


Anarew aranfiil/ Aigaior itanr
UF quarterback Tim Tebow completed 10 of 13 passes for 154 yards and a touchdown against Georgia in 2008.
He also rushed 12 times for 39 yards and three touchdowns.


failing to score on his two tries from
just 1 yard out.
But when the Gators get down
near the goal line, they are still go-
ing to let Tebow try to take it in him-
self.
"The single wing element has
been so successful around here,"
Meyer said.
"The ability to take someone else
out of the box is No. 1, No. 2 is he
is a big powerful runner; he is also
Tim and is going to give you every-
thing he's got."
Tebow has been watching the
Florida-Georiga rivalry since he was
4, and living in Jacksonville made it
easy for him to attend the game fre-
quently.
Growing up a Gators fan in Jack-
sonville made this rivalry extra spe-
cial for the Nease High graduate.
He said he doesn't expect there
to being any extra emotions in his
last time playing in the rivalry with
a chance to pass Walker.
In his hometown, Tebow is 1-1 as
a starter, and in his one loss, he had
to endure watching the entire Geor-


gia team celebrate a touchdown in
the end zone.
The play that still weighs heav-
ily on the minds of the Gators and
even got a response out of Meyer, as
he called two late timeouts after the
game was out of hand.
All the great memories from pre-
vious games are not the thing he
thinks of first, when reflecting on
what has made the game special for


him.
"Going home and playing in that
game makes it special for me, hav-
ing a lot of people there supporting
me," Tebow said.
A win would be one step closer
to a third national title in Tebow's
career, but one more rushing touch-
down could mean passing a player
many consider the greatest college
football player ever.

UF professor resigns after sex allegations


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewa rt@a llgator org

A UF department chair resigned earlier this
month following accusations that he had sex
with students.
Michael T. Garrett, 39, former chairman
of the counselor education department in the


College of Education, submitted his resigna-
tion in late September and officially resigned
Oct. 2.
UF learned of the allegations in early Sep-
tember and launched an investigation but
dropped it when Garrett left.
As a result, UF made no decision on wheth-
er the allegations were credible.
Even so, UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes


said UF would probably not rehire Garrett
and would tell other potential employers the
same.
On "The university condemns
Campus and, in fact, prohibits relation-
ships between faculty members
and students they supervise," Sikes said.
Officials in the education college held an
open meeting Monday night where they dis-


cussed the situation and read statements from
students who had been romantically involved
with Garrett.
"I have sadly come to learn in the past
couple of months that there are several other
students who simultaneously shared that false
hope and trust in Michael, believing as I did

Vigil honors victims


of breast cancer


Jamie Dollinger, the assistant director of the Women's Affairs cabinet at UF, stands with her candle at the
Candle Light for the Fight vigil for breast cancer on the Plaza of the Americas Thursday evening. The vigil was
held to raise awareness about the cancer during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.


By MOLLY LARMIE
Alligator Contributing Writer

Candlelight flickered in the
humid Thursday night, as the
normally bustling Plaza of the
Americas quieted during a vigil
for breast cancer.
About 50 people, their faces
framed by the soft orange glow
from their candles, formed a
semi-circle at 7:30 p.m. to cele-
brate Candle Light for the Fight.
The event was hosted by UF
Student Government's Health
Affairs and Women's Affairs to
conclude Breast Cancer Aware-
ness Month.
Claire Fluker, cabinet director
of Women's Affairs, organized
the vigil to create a more inti-
mate awareness setting where
students were encouraged to
participate, she said.
For half an hour, the hushed
crowd listened to testimonies
from students whose lives were
affected by a disease that, ac-


cording to the American Cancer
Society, could kill as many as
40,000 women in the U.S. this
year.
"It was the scariest
thing anyone could ever
tell me. I thought, 'How
could this happen to
us?"'
Synticee Denmark

Members of Zeta Tau Alpha
sorority handed out pink rib-
bons, and representatives from
the other organizations pro-

"ABCs" of breast health.

how she reacted when her moth-
er was diagnosed with breast

Recession forces students to recycle Halloween garb


Denslow: Trend typical during economic downturns


By MATT HARRINGER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Stacy Hutton is going to be an
angel for Halloween again.
Hutton, a junior health, edu-


cation and behavior major, is
on a tight budget this year, and
she'll be working at McDonald's
through the weekend instead of
going to costume parties or the
UF-Georgia game.


Hutton is allowed to wear
a costume Saturday night, but
she'll be recycling angel wings
from a previous year's costume.
David Denslow, a UF profes-
sor and research economist, said


many consumers this year might
follow the same trend because of
the recession. He expects most
people to make their own outfits
or, like Hutton, wear their old
ones.


Denslow said it's typical for
Halloween sales to be affected
by a weak economy. He expects
candy sales to be less flexible
than costume sales since trick-or-
treaters would be upset with last
year's candy.

WHAT'S HAPPENING
On-campus residents share
wireless Internet concerns
About 40 residents of Maguire
Village and University Village South,
two of UF's graduate and family
housing facilities, met with officials
from the Department of Housing
Thursday night to discuss problems
with their wireless Internet.
Azfar Mian, the director of hous-
ing for administrative services, an-
swered questions from the residents
about the reasons behind their unre-
liable wireless connection.
Based on a survey of the resi-
dents, which was completed by the
Department of Housing, the wire-
less system gets overloaded from
about 6 p.m. to midnight as resi-
dents return home, Mian said.
Alvaro Gurovich, a graduate
student of applied physiology and
kinesiology, said he has had to go
into work at 4 a.m. to upload data
because his wireless Internet did not
work.
"We work for the university,"
Gurovich said. "We produce for the
university. Our job made this uni-
versity, and we can't have fair access
to our data, to our servers."
Other residents expressed con-
cern because, as parents, they can-
not leave their children to use the
wireless on campus.
In response to the residents' com-
plaints and suggestions, Mian said
he would look into having wireless
access points in each building, rath-
er than have 36 total for the Maguire
and University Village South facili-
ties.
He also said he would consider
increasing the bandwidth of the
wireless network so it could support
more users.
Mian also said he would look
into using a wired connection.
He said he will assess the prices
of these alternatives and meet with
the group again.
"What you have said, I'm taking
that to the heart," Mian said.

Planned Parenthood, was the topic
of interest Thursday when UF's
Pro-Life Alliance held a demonstra-
tion on the Plaza of the Americas.
The organization called the
demonstration Margaret Sanger Ex-
posed and talked about her attitude
toward eugenics, or selective breed-
ing, through sterilization and birth
control. They stated Sanger and
Planned Parenthood specifically
target minorities and people with
disabilities for abortions.
"A lot of people see Planned
Parenthood as a great thing that
provides birth control and sexual
education," said Patricia Aguerra-
vere, junior art history major and
historian for the Pro-Life Alliance.
"People do not realize that it's the
largest abortion provider in the na-
tion and targets minorities due to
their socio-economic status."
Members handed out brochures
detailing various statistics on abor-
tions by race to support of their
argument. The organization also
linked Sanger to the eugenics move-
ment as an influence on Adolf Hit-
ler.
Students had mixed feelings
about what they learned.
"I'm pro-life, but I feel if you were
raped you should have a choice,"
said Tiffany Bass, a UF freshman.
Bass agreed with the organizations
opinion of Planned Parenthood and
felt that they do target minorities.
UF junior Andrew Scheuermann
on the other hand felt the organiza-
tion used emotions to get people
riled up.
"I think it would be horrible if it
was true, but I don't believe it," he
said.

After 250 years, composer comes to life for interview


By ALISON SCHWARTZ
Alligator Writer

He was a musician before the
days of punk rock angst and raw-
to-the-bone hip-hop. He was be-
fore rhythm and blues and before
MTV.
But Thursday evening, Johann
Sebastian Bach was back he just
looked a little different.
Re-animated in an original
program engineered by Digital
Worlds Institute artist-in-resi-
dence Arturo Sinclair, Bach ap-
peared in a live video Web cast for


LiveVibeTV, a 60-minute produc-
tion presented by the UF College
of Fine Arts.
"Bach was, I believe, one of the
greatest geniuses in the history of
humankind," said Steven Thomas,
a cellist and faculty member at
UF's School of Music. "He belongs
up there with Einstein and that
group."
It's been more than 250 years
since Bach's "Brandenburg con-
certos" and "Toccata and Fugue in
D minor" joined the ornate melo-
dies of the Baroque music period,
but Bach, the esteemed composer


"We live in a world with a
lot of distractions. Here
we were able to really
focus and experience [the
show]."
Lucinda Lavelli
Dean of the College of Fine Arts

of the 18th century, was enthu-
siastic and willing to answer the
questions from the live audience
of about 50 at Digital World In-
stitute's REVE facility in Norman
Hall.


Resembling the technology
used by Pixar Animation Studios
and DreamWorks Animation
SKG, Bach's lips moved, his eyes
twitched and his voice boomed
throughout the studio.
"We live in a world with a lot of
distractions," said Lucinda Lavel-
li, dean of the College of Fine Arts.
"Here we were able to really focus
and experience [the show]."
The program was a collabora-
tion of two of the college's pro-
grams: the Digital Worlds Insti-
tute and the School of Music.

* OFFICIALS DID NOT ANNOUNCE
WHEN TODAY'S TEXT WILL BE SENT.

After a flubbed test of its emergency mes-
saging system Wednesday, UF will send an-
other batch of text messages to students and
employees some time today.
In order to make the test more realistic, UF


won't announce to students or the company in
charge of sending the messages when it plans
to conduct the test, UF spokesman Steve Or-
lando said.
Orlando said this time UF is hoping the
messages will be sent out within 10 minutes
or less.
On Wednesday, because of a glitch that de-
layed messages for about 14 minutes, it took


about 23 minutes for all the texts to be sent to
cell phone carriers, said Kenneth Allen, UF's
emergency manage-
U F ment coordinator.
Administration That doesn't in-
clude the time it takes
for carriers to deliver the messages to individ-
ual phones, Allen said.
Orlando said if today's test doesn't go well,


grams, this pilot episode of LiveVi-
beTV was all about the music.
Hosted by UF senior English
major Cameryn Justice, the show
featured the music of Thomas and
Brazilian guitarist Welson Tremu-
ra as well as No Southern Accent,
a UF student a cappella group.
The show ended with a collec-
tive performance from all of the
participating musicians, a mash-
up of music that would have made
Bach proud.
The show broadcasted live on-
line and can be viewed at livevi-
betv.com.


ewer delays
UF might have to replace Blackboard Connect,
the company in charge of the system.
"This is essentially their last shot," he said.
Ed Miller, president of the company, said
the problem has already been fixed and he's
not worried at all.
"I'll sleep soundly tonight," Miller said
Thursday afternoon.

'Drill instructor' gives billiards tips


By ANDREW NORRIS
Alligator Contributing Writer

In a free clinic Thursday night, Domi-
nic "The Drill Instructor" Esposito put
about 30 spectators through a billiards
boot camp.
Esposito, a staff writer for Pool & Bil-
liard Magazine as well as a recognized
top 20 billiards instructor, showed on-
lookers drills and techniques to help im-
prove their game.
"All skill levels can enjoy what I'm


going to do tonight," Esposito said in an
interview before the clinic. "While I'm
speaking in a language that beginners
can ascribe to, the advanced player can
connect to the things that they really care
the most about and fill in the gaps."
Esposito, who lives up to his nick-
name by dressing in full drill instructor
garb, said his title came from his meticu-
lous way of teaching fundamentals.
"I'm pretty specific about what we do
and why we do it," Esposito said. "Shoot-
ing the shot right, shooting the right shot,

Esposito's appearance was well re-

some complaints about the event's tim-

da-Georgia, I think we'd have a bigger
crowd," said Mike Shelestak, a UF gradu-
ate student. "It's pretty cool seeing some
of the things he can do though. You see
some of that stuff on TV, but you never
really get anyone to explain to you how
to do it. "
The clinic was sponsored by the Reitz
Union Game Room. Esposito was paid
$350 for his appearance.
Esposito's clinic was the first of two
parts; the second will will take place in
January. The second clinic will cost par-
ticipants $50 and will be more one-on-one
training and in-depth training secrets.


Smoking ban


starts Sunday

The first phase of UF's campus-wide to-
bacco ban will go into effect Sunday at UF's
Health Science Center and all Shands at UF
facilities.
Ben Hill Griffin Stadium went smoke-
free in September, and the rest of the cam-
pus will follow suit on July 1.
In preparation for the Nov. 1 phase of
the ban, UF and Shands have been putting
up posters detailing the new policy and re-
moving ashtrays in affected buildings.
They've also been letting employees and
patients know about ways to quit smoking,
like free counseling sessions
On and free or discounted medi-
Campus cations.
People don't seem to be
rushing to the free sessions, however.
Kim Rose, a Shands at UF spokeswoman,
said she hasn't seen an uptick in enrollment
and Roger Keroack, who runs the sessions
for employees and their spouses at UF, said
attendance has been dismal.
UF can counsel about 45 people a semes-
ter, but a combined 20 people have either
taken the class already or signed up for the
semester's last one which started this
week even though UF allows employees
to participate during the workday without
using leave time.
Keroack said more people might sign
up when the campus-wide ban gets a little
closer.
"Maybe in May people will get serious
about it," he said. "Who knows?"

Zoo gets scary for Halloween


By LAUREN DELGADO
Alligator Contributing Writer


Halloween in Gainesville is about
to get a whole lot wilder.
The Santa Fe College Teaching
Zoo, located on 3000 NW 83rd St.,
will host its Halloween event "Boo
at the Zoo" from 3 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
on Saturday.
Zoo grounds will be transformed
into different Halloween themes by
student zookeepers. Three candy
stations will be open in each section
to give candy to trick-or-treaters.
Jack Brown, director of the zoo,
gave zookeepers an incentive to in-
spire them.
"The winning area that does the
best job on their particular theme
gets the following Wednesday off of
lab for free," Brown said.
The day off is no small occasion
for the student zookeepers, who are
required to work weekends, holi-
days and summers.
"The animals are here all the
time, and they need to be cared for,"
he said. "Our students are totally


immersed in everything they do,
which is anything a normal keeper
would do."
"Our students are totally
immersed in everything
they do, which is any-
thing a normal keeper
would do."
Jack Brown
Santa Fe College zoo director

The students carry out daily
animal care, which includes clean-
ing cages, preparing animal diets,
giving medications or providing
enrichments for the animals. Enrich-
ments are different ways to make an
animal's environment more exciting
through the use of new foods and
toys.
"Boo at the Zoo's" guests will be
the enrichments for the animals Sat-
urday. All of the animals are left on
exhibit for the guests, adding to the
experience.
"If the animals were adversely


affected by the crowds or the com-
motion, we would put them off dis-
play," Brown said.
Although there will be games in
the front lawn, the main focus will
be in the zoo. The zookeepers want
to share their enthusiasm for the ani-
mals.
"I really love the enrichments,"
said Alexandra Henwood, a third-
year student at the teaching zoo.
"You see different behaviors [from
the animals]. It's not an inside job,
which I would hate."
According to Brown, the zoo's
purpose is two-fold: to teach its
students and to teach its visitors.
The community plays a big part for
the teaching zoo. With habitats and
populations declining, the fate of the
animals is left to the people.
To aid the community, visitors
need to bring one canned good for
their admission, with all cans going
to local food banks.
"It's our chance to give back to the
community," Brown said. "Whether
that be through these cans of food or
just a fun, safe place to spend Hal-
loween."


Students share stories

on cancer's impact

CANDLE, from page 1

anyone could ever tell me," she said to the crowd. "I thought,
'How could this happen to us?'"
Her mother lost her battle with cancer last April. Denmark
said that cancer awareness should be everyone's responsibility
and encouraged students to find a way to get involved.
Eboni Peoples, 20, a UF health education and behavior ju-
nior, said Candle Light for the Fight was more
On personal than daytime events.
Campus "It makes you want to say 'Hey, Mom,
have you been to your appointment?' Or 'Hey,
Grandma, what are you doing about this?'"
After observing a moment of silence, Andrew Ruiz, presi-
dent of Colleges Against Cancer, walked onstage to deliver a
closing message.
Ruiz became a cancer awareness advocate after his mother
died from breast cancer six years ago.
"As you blow out your candles, make a wish," he said to the
crowd, "and that wish is to eliminate this horrible disease."

Editorial
The week is winding down at the Alligator as we pre-
pare for Halloween, Florida-Georgia, the Fest, sleep...
Fortunately, we've been working on our costumes
all semester. Thanks to many long nights at the Alligator,
accompanied by stimulant-fueled weekend study binges,
we're happy to present you with a we-feel-like-zombies-
every-day-so-we-don't-need-to-dress-up-for-Halloween
edition of...



Darts & Laurels

In our current states, we felt right at home Wednesday
when a flash mob brought the zombie apocalypse to the
UF campus. Sporting fake blood and tattered clothes, the
flash mob attracted a lot of attention, and we loved the idea
(playing off the now infamous UF Emergency Zombie Plan).
Unfortunately, with such a small turnout, the whole thing
looked less like the apocalypse and more like a D-horror
movie without all the bad dialogue to laugh at. That's why
we're going to throw a think-bigger-next-time DART at the
Theatre Strike Force, who organized the event.
This Sunday, the Alligator Editorial Board will have a
little less whining to do about lost sleep, as we gain an hour
thanks to Daylight Saving Time. For providing us with one
precious hour before early Monday classes, we would like
to present a we-love-our-antiquated-agrarian-time-system
LAUREL to Daylight Saving Time. It might not have any
relevance or benefit in today's society, but delaying an 8:30
a.m. writing lab by any amount of time is always a good
thing.
On Wednesday, President Barack Obama signed the Mat-
thew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention
Act into law, providing gays and lesbians with federal hate
crime protection.
This legislation is on the heels of last week's directive to
federal agencies not to pursue or prosecute licensed medical
marijuana users or distributors. For the recent rash of action
in what advocates have called an unproductive term and
with health care reform finally, well maybe, on its way we
would like to deliver a keeping-campaign-promises-is-awe-
some LAUREL to the Obama administration.
We were also happy to hear that Obama had time to tour
a southwest Florida solar power plant this week. Noticeably
absent from the event, in addition to the sunny Florida weath-
er, was Gov. Charlie Crist. Crist is facing a tough Republican
primary, and with last winter's Crist-Obama power hug still
plaguing him, it's understandable that he wants to distance
himself from Democrats. But snubbing Obama while he de-
livers $200 million in stimulus money for Florida's aging
power grid, and claiming that he didn't know Obama would
be in town, means we must throw a don't-hide-from-the-
man-hug DART to Gov. Crist. Because, if more hugs means
more money, then we need all the hugs we can get.
Finally, with the Florida-Georgia game approaching fast,
we are happy to hear that an anonymous donor has pre-
sented Student Government with a 10-foot wooden oar to
celebrate the longstanding rivalry. While we would like to
thank this donor by name, we are not surprised that he chose
to be anonymous, given that cutting down just about any
1,000-year-old cypress tree, let alone one from the Okefeno-
kee National Wildlife Refuge, is likely illegal. But this oar
is amazing... and with that in mind, we would like to give
an oars-can-be-paddles-too LAUREL to Mr. Anonymous,
because if we have it our way, UF's SG president will have
many future opportunities to give Georgia's president a
post-victory paddling to remember.
That's all for this week! Go absurdly huge oars!

Opinions


Guest column

Mayor explains stan
Editor's note: This is an excerpt from an e-mail sent
by Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan regarding an an editorial
and story published by the Alligator.
Q: Is it true that the City Commission took action to
prohibit St. Francis House from serving more than 130
meals at holidays?
A: There has been no recent action or direction by the
City Commission related to meal service at St. Francis
House. Approximately 18 years ago, long before the ten-
ure of any current elected official, the City Commission
passed general code provisions that regulate food dis-
tribution centers for the needy that are not operated at a
place of religious assembly (sec. 30-111) and those that are
operated at places of religious assembly (sec. 30-91). These
code provisions address, among other things, a limit on
the number of meals within a 24-hour period, distance
requirements and management plan requirements. These
code provisions make no special distinction for holiday
meals. This ordinance has not been reviewed by the City
Commission at any time during my nearly 12-year ten-
ure.
Q: Why is there a 130-meal limit in the first place?
A: This has been a provision in the Gainesville Code of
Ordinances since before 1992. The intent was, and is, sim-
ply to distribute the services to destitute people across
the community, rather than to concentrate them all in one
location. St. Francis House has never been legally autho-
rized to serve more than this number and has, or should
have, been aware of this during its entire existence at its
current location.
Q: Isn't this immoral? Aren't people then left to
starve?
A: Every place of religious assembly throughout our
community is authorized to serve meals and house home-
less persons, subject to the limitations and permit require-
ments set forth in City Code Sec. 30-91. However, the

ce on serving meals
administrative enforcement of those
limitations and requirements have
been temporarily suspended since
March 28, 2008, when the City Com-
mission directed the city manager
not to issue or deny any permits un-
Pegeen der Sec. 30-91 until the Community
Hanrahan Development Committee studied
Speaking Out those regulations and returned with
proposed amendments. The Com-
mittee is returning to the City Com-
mission with recommendations on Nov. 5.
Q: The City of Gainesville has been listed as one of
the nation's "Meanest Cities" toward homeless for clos-
ing Tent City and enforcing this meal limit. What is
wrong with the city?
A: In reality, the cities who have been placed on this list
are actually all communities that are doing SOMETHING
to help homeless people, albeit imperfectly. There are
many communities that do little or nothing for homeless
people, so those that take up the responsibility end up with
"more than their fair share" of work to do. Unlike most
government programs, one of the difficult issues around
helping homeless people is that the better the services you
provide, the more people who come forward to seek those
services. In an environment in which there is no require-
ment for basic human needs to be met in all jurisdictions,
those who do provide services end up taking up the bur-
den for those who don't, and the better your services are,
the more people you attract who need them. In reality,
Gainesville is a city of 130,000 that is trying to provide al-
most all of the homeless services in a multi-county region
of more rural, suburban and disadvantaged communities.

complete responses, explanations of laws and ordinances and
ways citizens can help the homeless, please visit A, 1it. .org.

Letters to the Editor
East Gainesville not dependent on AGH
Your editorial column "Closed Doors"
was patently ridiculous. According to Map-
quest Shands at AGH and Shands at UF are
1.42 miles apart. I hardly think a three-min-
ute travel time will result in "cutting off ac-
cess to those in need" and your hysterically
dire predictions for infant mortality, STDs,
homicide deaths, economic decline, crime,
etc.
Of course, as a nonprofit corporation,
Shands will indeed redirect "savings" back
into the community. For the record, I am
a Shands at UF employee, but am not in
on business decisions. If I was, Pediatrics
wouldn't have been moved to AGH and
back again.

New radio format rewarding, enriching
May I add my voice in support of WUFT-
FM's current programming format, and I
hope you will hear from many more who
share my view that the new format offers
an exciting, rewarding and enriching listen-
ing experience. It's impossible to fact-check
the claims by those 40 music-lovers with the
funds to buy a full-page ad in the Sun.
But I for one would regret any decision
to step back to what they believe was a "bal-
ance" between music (actually about 19 1/2
hours in 24) and news/commentary (4 1/2
hours).
This group also urges readers to call
in during this pledge week with an implied
threat that they will only contribute if the
old format is restored.


I find this offensive, and it has motivated
me to double the amount of my membership
contribution this year. Options for listening
to good classical, folk and jazz music are
there. Missing from the ad is another alterna-
tive--choosing from one's collection of CDs.
And these folks must have lots to choose
from. So please, stay with what you've got
going for many of us. Thank you.

Gainesville Resident



Station switch to NPR a good move
I am sure you are getting a large num-
ber of emails on the WUFT programming
switch, so I will try to keep mine short. I


am writing.
I saw a full page ad in the Gainesville
Sun today urging me to contact you (and
copy all the other individuals included on
this email) to complain about the format
change; on the contrary, I would like to
thank you for switching to an all-talk sta-
tion.
I enjoy the NPR programming, and I
am excited that I am now able to access
that programming all day on WUFT.
As far as pledging is concerned, my
husband and I are so pleased with the
change that we have made our first dona-
tion to the pledge drive this year.
Thank you for the format change!

Guest column

Michigan ordinance
For an off-year election, Nov. 3 is shaping up to be pretty
interesting day at the polls.
The more obvious reasons for this, and the ones get-
ting the most attention from cable news channels, are a few rac-
es (including the gubernatorial elections in Virginia and New
Jersey and a quirky special election for the U.S. House seat in
New York's 23rd congressional district) being decided Tues-
day that some political folks are characterizing as bellwethers
for the mood of the country.
Maybe more significant, there are a few ballot initiatives be-
ing voted on that may serve as an indication of just how much
progress the LGBT rights movement has made. Maine is voting
on Question 1, which could reject via a "people's veto" a state
law that legalized gay marriage; Washington state is voting on
Referendum 71, which is asking voters to approve or reject a
state law that expanded domestic partnership rights to match
those of marriages.
But maybe the most relevant ballot initiative to Gainesville
is the vote on Ordinance 1856, in which voters in Kalamazoo,
Mich., will decide whether or not to approve a city ordinance
that extended discrimination protections to LGBT people.
Why? Because what's playing out in Kalamazoo almost ex-
actly matches Gainesville's vote on Charter Amendment 1, and
eerily so.
Charter Amendment 1 was a proposed amendment to the
Gainesville City Charter that had the intention of eliminating
discrimination protections in areas like housing and employ-
ment based on sexual orientation and gender identity. (Pro-
tections for many other categories, like race and religion, are
already protected under state law.)


similar to local Charter Amendment 1


The group pushing for the amend-
ment's passage, Citizens for Good Public
Policy, said that protecting LGBT people
constituted giving them "special rights"
and insinuated that keeping protections
for transgender people would lead to
Joe Dellosa men entering girls' restrooms and rap-
letters@alligatororg ing them. Gainesville voters called BS
both on that argument and the amend-
ment itself, voting it down on March 24.
But evidently, what's past isn't prologue for the anti-LGBT
protections group in Kalamazoo pushing for the rejection of the
ordinance. (The "yes" vote in this election is the pro-LGBT pro-
tections vote; the "no" vote is the anti-LGBT protections vote.)
The group, Kalamazoo Citizens Voting No to Special Rights
Discrimination, is trying to say that these protections, far from
working against discrimination, are in fact discriminatory
against people who don't want to work with or provide ser-
vices to LGBT people. In other words, they're saying that Ordi-
nance 1856 discriminates against people who want to discrimi-
nate (well, yeah) and that "elevating the beliefs of one group
over those of another is indeed both a 'special right' and dis-
crimination" (because not getting fired because of the person
you love is, indeed, a special right).
(On a sidenote, even if we're going to follow Kalamazoo
Citizens Voting No's argument that we shouldn't elevate one
group's beliefs over another and that sexual orientation and
gender identity is a choice, I'm skeptical that they're going to
spearhead the effort to repeal discrimination protections based
on religion.)


And, of course, there's the "men in girls' restrooms" argu-
ment again. The group's talking points sheet is titled, "Is There
a Man in Your Daughter's Bathroom?" And they've even
pilfered wholesale Citizens for Good Public Policy's TV com-
mercial featuring a pedophile following a little girl into the
bathroom for an Internet ad, except they swapped the word
"Gainesville" for "Kalamazoo." (You can compare the two on
YouTube tinyurl.com/KzooAd and tinyurl.com/GvilleAd -
if you're curious.)
Perhaps the sneakiest thing Kalamazoo Citizens Voting No
is doing is distributing signs and fliers that say "No Discrimi-
nation: Vote NO on Ord. 1856" a clear attempt to hoodwink
low-information voters into thinking that the "no" vote is the
vote in favor of discrimination protections.
I'm not presumptuous enough to tell Kalamazoo voters
how they should cast their ballot. After all, I've never even been
to Kalamazoo (though I've heard it's a really pretty city, espe-
cially in the autumn). And besides, I'm pretty sure they can
make up their own minds.
But for what it's worth, I can say that I had never been
prouder to live in Gainesville when voters both locals and
students rejected Charter Amendment 1 by 16 percentage
points. And contrary to what the at times cartoon-like absurd
campaign waged against LGBT protections wanted us to be-
lieve, our city is better for it, and we're better people for it.
It's disheartening to see the same scare tactics that were used
here being used in Kalamazoo, but with any luck, the outcome
will be the same.Fingers crossed, Kalamazoo.

kansas and Paul Bunyan's Axe
between University of Minneso-
ta and University of Wisconsin.
Johnson and UGA's Student
Body President Katie Barlow
will highlight the old rivalry's
new addition during a 2 p.m.
CBS broadcast in the parking
lot of the Jacksonville Municipal
Stadium this Saturday.
Johnson said the oar isn't just
for the winning school's Student
Government but for the whole
Student Body.
"It instills a sense of pride to
the game, a sense of responsibil-
ity to students from both sides
and a sense of sportsmanship
and great tradition that SEC
football is known for," he said.
Johnson said the oar is made
from wood in the Okefenokee
Swamp, which is common in
both states and is engraved into
the histories of both Florida and
Georgia.
SG press secretary Eric Con-
rad said the oar was carved from
a 1000-year-old tree.
The wood symbolizes the
conflict that arose when Florida
and Georgia drew the state-
boundary line through Okefeno-
kee Swamp, a conflict that came
long before the rivalry on the
football field.
Barlow said both schools
have been talking about having
an award for years, adding the
oar will add to the tradition and
rivalry of the game.
"It's just something to kind of
symbolize the victory," Barlow
said.

LOCAL

St. Francis House residents


receive free dental advice


By ANNIE QUINTANA
Alligator Contributing Writer

In comparison to finding
a place to sleep or food to eat,
oral hygiene isn't a top prior-
ity for homeless people.
The Pre-dental American
Student Dental Association
wants to change that.
Thursday night, mem-
bers of the Pre-dental ASDA
served dinner to the home-
less and gave a presentation
on good oral hygiene at the
St. Francis House.
About 30 shelter residents


"We wanted to reach
out to a part of the
community that is
often neglected."
Alex Samuel
Pre-dental ASDA board
member

had hot meals provided
by the members of the Pre-
dental ASDA and watched a
presentation on proper den-
tal care, such as appropriate
ways to brush and floss.
"We wanted to reach out
to a part of the community


that is often neglected," said
Alex Samuel.
Samuel, who is on the
board of directors for the
Pre-dental ASDA, wanted
to spread awareness of the
importance of maintaining
good oral hygiene and pre-
venting serious medical con-
ditions.
Rich Miller, a St. Francis
House resident, paid close
attention to the presentation.
"It's hard to get dental
care," Miller said. "More
work needs to be done for
the homeless out here."


Some decide not to wear costumes


ECONOMY, from page 1

Last year's Halloween candy was dis-
counted because stores were surprised by
the recession and overstocked, he said, but
this year he expects fewer discounts because
stores are controlling inventory better.
Sales at Center Stage costume shop are
steady, according to manager John Albrit-
ton.
"Halloween is the one time a year you
can be yourself," Albritton said. "You can
be a kid and dress up."
He thinks Halloween sales will be sus-
tained in a college town like Gainesville be-


cause it's the last party for students before
midterms and the holidays.
Albritton expects some students to cele-
brate Thursday, Friday and Saturday night,
even if they're going to Jacksonville for the
football game.
Local But Chelsea Pulido, a soph-
News more business administration
major, is using the football
game as an excuse not to dress up.
Pulido said with the tighter economy,
her mom isn't giving her as much money,
and even if she does go to a Halloween par-
ty before the game, she won't be wearing a
costume this year.


He sent nude photos via phone


RESIGN, from page 1

that they were involved in an exclu-
sive, intimate, committed relation-
ship," a statement read, according to
an article on InsideHigherEd.com.
"Those students, consequently, are
also experiencing intense pain right
now."
The article quotes three anony-
mous students who said they had in-
timate relationships with Garrett, two
of whom admitted having sex with
him.
One former student said she had
sex regularly while she was enrolled
in his class. Another told Inside High-
er Ed that she exchanged nude pic-
tures with him.
"His classes were intimate," one
student said in the article. "We ex-
posed really personal stuff, and he
would continue to talk to us about
personal stuff. That's what he initiated
contact with."
E-mails and a voicemail message
requesting comment from Garrett
were not returned Thursday.
One former student and teaching
assistant of Garrett's said she was
shocked to hear about the allegations
against him when contacted on Thurs-
day.
"He was one of the best profes-
sors I had ever had," said the recent
UF graduate, who wished to remain
anonymous.
"He just really, really, really cared
about his students."
She said Garrett was always very
professional and conceded that she


could see how some female students
might have felt an attraction for him,
but she never thought he would cross
the line with any of them.
Another former student, Amy
Mazak, also said the allegations came
as a surprise and that Garrett was one
of her favorite professors.
"He talked about his family a lot in
class, and I even met his young son on
several occasions,"
Mazak wrote in an
e-mail. "His son
was the world to
him, that was obvi-
ous."
Garrett, who
was hired in 2006,
t was on the fringes
Garrett of another scandal
earlier this year when UF investigated
the abuse of university credit cards,
known as purchasing cards.
UF learned that an employee in
his department had been sharing her
card, a violation of university policy,
with other members of the depart-
ment, including Garrett.
The employee had her card can-
celed, but UF decided not to take any
action against Garrett.
According to a biography on the
UF Web site, Garrett has authored
dozens of articles and book chapters,
many about the counseling of Native
Americans.
Garrett, who was paid about
$106,000 at UF according to salary
information from March grew up
on a Cherokee Indian reservation in
western North Carolina.

Picks


Column


SITE: Jacksonville Municipal
Stadium (cap. 84,000)
KICKOFF: Saturday 3:30 p.m.
TV: CBS


We're eight weeks in, and it seems
the cream is already rising to the top.
We invited five "real" writers to partici-
pate in the alligatorSports Brand Picks
Column for the first time this fall, and
so far, the only thing they are "real"
good at seems to be losing. Four of the
top five places are held by alligator-
Sports guys with Phil Kegler being the
lone Alligator guy in the bottom five.
We're sure it'll only be a couple more
weeks before we bask in our complete
dominance. Anyway, now let's debate
a top-10 showdown that will likely de-
termine the Pacific-10 Conference.

USC WILL COVER THE -3 SPREAD BE-
CAUSE ... the Trojans always do? Is that
too easy a solution? This is the game
where USC reminds everyone of its
dominance and all but clinches a share
of the conference title for the eighth
straight year. While Autzen Stadium
poses a tough test, Trojans freshman
quarterback Matt Barkley has the ex-
perience of a fourth-quarter, go-ahead
drive against Ohio State earlier in the
season. This should be the best de-
fense the Ducks have faced this sea-
son since their season opener against
Boise State, and Oregon quarterback
Jeremiah Masoli had a whopping 135
total yards against the Broncos. This is
the week Kyle Maistri can stop quack-
ing and realize USC will be the confer-
ence winner yet again. PHIL KEGLER

OREGON WILL WIN BECAUSE ... The
Ducks are simply the class of the Pac-
10. For the second straight week, I'm sit-
ting here telling all of you out there that
Oregon will obviously cover the line, as
the Quack Attack will be too much for
the Trojans to contain in Eugene. DiFer
foolishly tried to argue for Washington
and his boy Jake Locker, but the Hus-
kies were trampled 43-19 by the Ducks,
who easily cleared the 10-point line. La-
Michael James is just the latest in a long

Redshirt freshmen duo hungry for first title

By TYLER JETT

tjett@alligator org

McKenzie Barney and Kat Williamson
know all about last year's Southeastern
Conference champions.
While the Gators were busy running
through every conference rival en route to
a perfect SEC record in 2008, Barney and
Williamson watched from the sidelines,
hobbled by knee injuries.

"When you're hurt as a freshman,
it's the toughest thing because
you're coming into an already-es- I .
tablished social group."

Becky Burleigh
UF soccer coach


Tonight at 6, as No. 10 Florida (13-4-
2, 7-1-2 SEC) hosts No. 13 South Carolina
(15-2-1, 7-2-1 SEC), the Gators will have a
chance to live up to the expectations set by
last year's team. With a win, UF the team
picked in the preseason to take the confer-
ence will have its fourth-straight SEC
title. As the Gators have scrapped back to
the top of the conference with five wins in
their last six games, the play of Barney and
Williamson has been pivotal.
Barney has scored five goals in SEC play
and was recently moved from midfielder to
starting forward while Williamson has been
a staple for the Gators' backline, starting ev-
ery game this season.
The two redshirt freshmen missed all of

their first year with ACL-related injuries.
"When you're hurt as a freshman, it's the
toughest thing because you're coming into
an already-established social group, and
then you're not really a part of it directly,"
coach Becky Burleigh said. "But I think both
(Barney) and Kat's personality lent them-
selves to being a big part of the team even
though they weren't playing."


Barney's problems began as a senior at
Sammamish Skyline High in Washington.
While practicing with her team in Septem-
ber 2007, Barney made an awkward cut and
tore her left ACL.
Barney rehabbed and was healthy again
after six months, but on just the third day of
preseason practice last season, Barney went

This year's UF-UGA game won't be worth remembering


If you're a senior like me (I
would technically classify
myself as a redshirt junior,
but that's besides the point), and
you spent the last three Florida-
Georgia games getting wasted
at the Landing or in the parking
lot of Jacksonville Municipal Sta-
dium, I feel sorry for you.
For the life of me, I can't un-
derstand why "sports fans" insist
on being three sheets to the wind
- for UF-UGA, maybe seven or
eight sheets would be more accu-
rate by the time they're ready
to watch their team play.
Call me crazy, but I like to
clearly understand what's going
on, especially during big games,
and sometimes even remember


what I watched/thought the next
day. I would count control of my
bladder as a plus as well, though
not totally necessary I suppose.
In my three years at college,
the Gators and Bulldogs have
squared off in some games I'm
glad I can remember.
My freshman year, Florida
was coming off the crippling Au-
burn loss, and it would be easy to
argue the 21-14 win over Georgia
served as the spring board for the
eventual national title.
In 2007, both teams came in
with two losses and absolutely
desperate to salvage their sea-
sons. UGA stomped in the end
zone on its way to a Sugar Bowl
berth, and the rest is history.

Which brings me to Saturday.
Given all the great recent and
distant history between these two
Southeastern Conference pow-

that anyone making the 90-min-
ute excursion to Jacksonville
really take the time to focus on
what's important this weekend


and forget about any potential
distractions.
And just this once, I'm refer-
ring to the game when I say dis-

It's apparent from the unfa-
miliar lack of buildup throughout
the week that this isn't exactly the
Big with a capital 'B' game
that it has been in the past.
The Bulldogs are just an av-
erage SEC team this season, and
the Gators are playing some of
the most boringly successful
football in recent memory. If you
find defense "exciting," good for
you. I do, too. But who among us
wouldn't argue UF was far more
entertaining last season when it

UF WOMEN'S CROSS COUNTRY

Gators vie for first SEC title since '97


By JESSICA BETTER
Alligator Writer

It has been 12 years since the wom-
en's cross country team has won a
Southeastern Conference title.
"They put enough pressure on
themselves," coach Todd Morgan said.
"They know SEC titles are never easy to
win and so it is going to be a fight, but
they are ready for it this weekend."
The No. 5 women's team was a pre-
season favorite to win the conference
title, and now the Gators will have a
chance to make good on that projec-
tion as they travel to Oxford, Miss., to
compete in the SEC Championship on
Saturday.
After finishing two runners in the
top 10 at the Pre-NCAA Invitational on
Oct. 17 and finishing in second place at
the meet, the Gators realize the goals


they set out at the beginning of the sea-
son can be accomplished.
Morgan prohibited his players from
talking to the media this week in an ef-
fort to keep them away from the hype
and focused on the
task at hand.
The runners are
focused on the SEC
Championship on
Saturday as well as
the South Regional
meet on Nov. 14 and
Morgan the NCAA Champi-
onships on Nov. 23,
Morgan said.
The team finished second at the
2008 SEC Championship but want to
place higher than that this season with
the addition of three new runners.
Graduate student Stacey Johnson,
whose eighth-place finish at the Pre-
NCAA meet was the best on the team,


will run in her first SEC Championship
meet, along with freshmen Sydney De-
vore and Mandy Perkins.
"Most of our girls are running the
best they have ever run," Morgan said.
"We have several that could be our first
girl across the line on any given day.
There is a lot of talent on that roster."
Although the women's team has
many talented athletes, Morgan said
Arkansas and Tennessee are two teams
that are capable of winning the race on
Saturday.
Arkansas, who was the only other
team to receive first-place votes in the
SEC Cross Country Coaches' Poll, was
projected to finish in second while Ten-
nessee came in third during the pre-
season poll.
The Gators will have a week off af-
ter the SEC Championship before the
NCAA South Regional meet in Tusca-
loosa, Ala.


Williamson, Barney rehabbed injuries together


SOCCER, from page 16


for a header along with three other players.
"Knees were everywhere, elbows were everywhere,"
Barney said. "Someone's leg knocked my knee or some-
thing, and I thought I heard the famous 'pop' in the air."
This time, Barney tore her right ACL.
Williamson also tore her ACL in the fall of 2007, but she
did not allow her ligament to fully heal. She tried to prac-
tice again three months after the tear, and she damaged
her patellar tendon in the same knee in April of 2008.
Williamson did not have surgery on her knee for an-
other three months, as local doctors failed to diagnose her
injury.
"It was extremely difficult not knowing what was
wrong and how to fix it," she said.
Once they finally got their respective surgeries last
year, Barney's and Williamson's time was almost entirely
dedicated to getting back on the field.
They would wake up, go to therapy, go to class, go
back to therapy, do special workouts at practice, go back
to therapy again, sleep and repeat.


"Kat and McKenzie are workhorses, and they want to
get back and they want to play," trainer Emily Kiefer said.
"Motivation for them is not an issue."
Kiefer said the only thing holding the players back
was time. Williamson's less-severe injury required three
months to heal while Barney's demanded six months.
As they sat on the sidelines, Barney and Williamson
were told by Burleigh to watch specific players. During
the games, they would hear the coaches'
^ comments about mistakes made by their
healthy teammates.
"Me and Kat learned so much last year
Soccer from watching, and I think it really trans-
ferred over to this year," Barney said.
After all the time spent on the sideline, keeping their
weight off their weakened knees, Barney and Williamson
have learned how to appreciate life on the field.
"I feel so fortunate to actually be actively part of this
team, because I felt like so long I was just verbally con-
tributing instead of physically having my presence out
there," Williamson said. "It's a great experience. I love it.
I love every minute out there."

Class of '12 to lead UF on road


Outside hitter Kristy Jaeckel is one of four second-year players who have
started every game for UF this season.


UNIEST OF FLO ID

* THE TEAM WILL FACE UA
AND MSU THIS WEEKEND.

By ANTHONY CHIANG
Alligator Writer
achlang@alligatororg

After 18 years of conference
dominance, coach Mary Wise
has seen many successful grad-
uating classes pass through
Florida.
Perhaps none of them ac-
complished as much in their
first two years as these sopho-
mores.
The class includes setter
Kelly Murphy, middle blocker
Cassandra Anderson and out-
side hitters Kristy Jaeckel and
Colleen Ward all of whom
have started every match this
season.
They will lead No. 10 UF
(16-3, 10-2 Southeastern Con-
ference) as it heads to Tusca-
loosa to face Alabama (6-16, 4-8
SEC) at 8 p.m. before traveling
to Starkville to take on Missis-
sippi State (5-18, 1-11 SEC) on
Sunday.
This is not their first go-
around. The sophomores now
know what to expect from life
on the road in the SEC.
"It was kind of trial by fire a
year ago, but what a difference
a year makes," Wise said. "You
can talk about what it's like to
play at Alabama or Mississippi
State, but they have already


been there now. We aren't
spending any extra time on do-
ing those types of things."
The four sophomores are al-
ready on their way to becoming
the faces of the program this
season as Anderson leads the
team in blocks; Ward has the
most kills; Jaeckel is second on
the team in digs; and Murphy
has the most triple-doubles, the
most assists and the highest
hitting percentage.
"The youth of our team
is something we can use
as an advantage, but it's
also something we also
can't use as an excuse."
Kristy Jaeckel
UF sophomore outside hitter

"I think we've definitely
grown a lot," Jaeckel said. "It's
hard sometimes to make the ad-
justment at first between high
school and college because the
speed of the game is just com-
pletely different."
But it's not like they didn't
have an impact in their fresh-
man year either.
Murphy, Jaeckel and Ward
were all named to the SEC All-
Freshman Team, and the trio
finished atop UF's total kills
list last season.
The sophomore class made
history in 2008 as Murphy be-
came the first player in school

history to win the AVCA Na-
tional Freshman of the Year.
She also broke the school re-
cord for most triple-doubles in
a career in her first season with
six and now has five more to
add to that total with another
nine matches remaining in her
sophomore season.
"I think it's just really excit-
ing." Jaeckel said. "The youth
of our team is something we
can use as an advantage, but
it's also something we also
can't use as an excuse."
The fourth member of the
group was quietly impressive
in her freshman season as well.
Anderson has led the Gators in
blocks ever since she first set
foot on campus while also be-
coming one of just seven fresh-
men in school history to aver-
age more than one block per
set.
"Cassandra is one of those
players who may go under the
radar of our fans or the media,
but she is at the top of our list
because she leads us in block-
ing," Wise said. "We under-
stand that the only chance we
have of making a run in the
NCAAs is with blocking."
But all of these accomplish-
ments and records don't mean
anything to the sophomores.
Their primary focus is on help-
ing this program do something
it has never done before win
a national championship.

PICKS, from page 16

Oregon running backs, as the freshman has rushed for 657
yards and six touchdowns in his last five games. Plus, Phil Keg-
ler went a pathetic 3-7 last week against the lines while I posted
a less-than-modest 9-1 mark. The better man will surely win
this one yet again, just ask DiFer. KYLE MAISTRI

On to the picks!
Leaping to the top and ending Mike DiFerdinando's reign
with a 44-35 record is Kyle "The Tuskers are the best profes-
sional sports team" Maistri, who will be heading to St. Pete
tonight to catch a UFL game. That's certainly an improvement
over his normal Friday night routine of watching Sex and the
City reruns in a pink Snuggie before crying himself to sleep.
Also moving ahead of DiFer in second place with a 43-36
record is Bobby "I currently cover Gator gymnastics" Callovi,
who hasn't updated his Facebook employment in a year and
half. He lists Tamagotchi, Pokdmon and Beanie Babies under
his interests and nap time, recess and "going potty" under his
activities.
Falling to third at 42-37 after ending his hopes for a wire-
to-wire title is Mike "This is just like that movie with the fog"
DiFerdinando, who woke up in the middle of the night in a cold
sweat, soaked in his own urine after having to drive through a


light fog on our trip to Starkville.
Checking in at fourth at 41-38 is Mike "It's playoff time!"
McCall, who was more interested in the start of the MLS play-
offs than the beginning of the World Series.
Rounding out the top five and taking the top non-Alligator
spot at 40-39 is the Gainesville Sun's Ed "Isn't my 70s basket-
ball player costume hilarious?" Aschoff, who is way to excited
to slip into a pair of John Stockton-esque shorts. At least there
won't be any mini-Eds after the irreparable damage he is sure
to do.
Beginning a two-way tie for sixth at 37-42 is the Florida
Times-Union's Mike "Brandon James could eat peanuts off my
head" DiRocco, who was used as a body double for Gimli in all
three Lord of the Rings movies.
Also in sixth at 37-42 is Phil "What's the game tonight?"
Kegler, who inexplicably garners respect for his opinions on
the latest sports lines. Picture Rain Man, without the aptitude
for correctness.
Sitting in eighth at 36-43 is the Orlando Sentinel's Jeremy
"My Giant" Fowler, who plays the Gheorghe Muresan to Bob-
by Callovi's Danny DeVito when they sit next to each other at
football games.
Falling in at ninth at 31-48 is the Miami Herald's Joe "Tus-
caloosa is due west of Starkville" Goodman, who grew up in
Alabama, where he never learned Geography. He did better


than most Alabamians, as he's only had sex with one of his sec-
ond cousins.
Sitting in dead-last place with a dreadful 27-53 record is
the Palm Beach Post's Ben "Paparazzi" Volin, who was happy
to pass around his phone this week showing off pictures he
snapped of scantily clad girls at a downtown lingerie party.

was hanging 40-plus on the reg?
I have no reason to believe this game
won't look a lot like last week's Missis-
sippi State matchup minus the pick-
sixes so just this one time, I find it
acceptable for fans to make cornhole the
main athletic event in their itinerary Sat-
urday.
Cross the bridge, show up early, grill
out and throw back a few cold ones with
84,000 of your closest friends because the


environment might just be the most re-
deeming quality of this year's 87th edi-
tion of the rivalry.
There probably won't be any danc-
ing in the end zone after a score or
fourth quarter timeouts to rub salt in the
wounds of a 49-10 loss. (Do yourself a fa-
vor: load up the YouTube clip and keep
an eye on No. 72 in Red and Black. Big
man gets down.)
There probably won't be any fire-
works at all.
We're all getting ready to sleepwalk
through another ugly 10-point win,


which is why I will leave you with some-
thing from my youth.
I distinctly remember going to a
spring training baseball game with my
dad at beautiful Roger Dean Stadium in
Jupiter, sitting in the bleachers on a hot
summer day.
A charismatic beer vendor walked by
our section and gave us a classic sales
pitch: "Buy a beer! Your friend looks bet-
ter blurred!"
I suspect the same will be true Sat-
urday for our old friend the Florida-
Georgia game.
