UF ADMINISTRATION


UF announces plan to cut additional $6M


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewa rt@alligator org

Under recently formulated plans to cut the
last $6 million from UF's budget this year, the
university could leave as many as 60 faculty
positions unfilled.
That number would be added to the 200
or so positions that are already in the process
of being eliminated or laid off.


The plan calls for the provost and deans
of UF's colleges and academic units to decide
which faculty positions will be left unfilled
when professors leave or retire over the next
two years.
Annual turnover and reallocation at UF
produces an average of $10 million to $15
million in salaries and benefits each year, and
officials would have to identify about $6 mil-
lion to cut from that pool by the end of June.
A lower-ranking professor at UF typically


makes about $100,000 in salary and benefits
each year, which means about 60 positions
could be affected.
However, the number could be lower be-
cause the deans will be able to decide if they
want to continue funding the positions by
instead cutting back on other things, said UF
Provost Joe Glover.
Each college and unit will likely get a pro-
portional share of the cut, Glover said, though
he has discretion to decide if some colleges


will have to cut more than others.
Put into perspective, the cut amounts to
about 1 percent of the state-funded portion of
each of the colleges' budgets.
But unlike in January, when they were
told to prepare budget proposals that were
eventually posted online, Glover said the col-
leges won't have to do that this time.
"That was a very stressful exercise," he
said.

ROTC wins national award


The program beat 50 others


By CAROLYN TILLO
Alligator Writer

UF's Air Force ROTC is flying
high after its national award.
It received the Right of Line
Award, which ranks it as the
top program of its size in the
nation.
Maj. Craig Heitzler, an assis-
tant professor in aerospace stud-
ies, said UF's Air Force ROTC
Detachment 150 competed with
about 50 other programs for the
award.
The award was based on
training, education and recruit-


ment efforts, he said.
Heitzler said students, or ca-
dets, participate in field training
where they assume roles similar
to real Air Force jobs and learn
how to cope in
National high-pressure
News situations.
UF's Air
Force ROTC also
makes its Career Day event open
to the public, unlike programs
at other universities. It brings
in active-duty Air Force officers
who talk about their jobs to any
students interested in joining
the Air Force, including those


not involved in ROTC.
"Maybe other universities do
what we do, but then we take it
to the higher level," he said.
Heitzler has been at UF for a
short time but hopes to help UF
secure the award in the future.
"I definitely want to continue
the winning tradition that we
have here and do the best I can
in helping the cadets achieve
their goals," he said.
He said UF's Air Force ROTC
also won the award in 2007 but
was ineligible for the Right of
Line in 2008 because programs
cannot win two years in a row.

Ida drops to tropical storm


* GAINESVILLE WILL SEE HEAVIEST
IMPACT TONIGHT.

By DAVID TINTNER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Chad Seufert won't let a few gusts of wind and a
couple inches of rain ruin his Veterans Day.
Seufert, a second-year UF graduate student, is
driving to Orlando for a Minus the Bear concert
Wednesday, and he's determined not to let Tropical
Storm Ida make him miss the show.
Tropical Storm Ida was forecast to strike Florida's
Gulf Coast Tuesday morning. After being recently
downgraded from a Category 2 hurricane to a tropi-
cal storm, Ida is no longer expected to cause any ma-
jor problems but could still wash out some Veterans
Day events.


Dave Donnelly, emergency management chief for
Alachua County, doesn't expect the storm to make a
major impact on the county.
"Fortunately, the storm really weakened over-
night," he said, adding that he only expects an inch
or two of rain to hit the county.
"Fortunately, the storm really weakened

But people still need to be careful because of the
possibility of tornadoes, he said.
"People should avoid boating on lakes and rivers
and be extra careful driving," he said.

Grad student arrested for
stealing shoes
A UF graduate student was ar-
rested Sunday evening after he ran
from police while wearing a pair of
sneakers he'd just stolen.
Matthew Cimoch, 24, entered
the Kohl's department store on
Archer Road at about 6 p.m., put
on a pair of black New Balance
sneakers and left the store without
paying, according to a Gainesville
Police Department report.
A store security guard confront-
ed Cimoch, who then pushed the
guard's shoulders and ran across
the Kohl's parking lot toward Ar-
cher Road.
Cimoch then went across the
street to Wal-Mart, where he
walked around as police searched
for him, according to the report.
Police stopped him as he was
leaving the store. The Kohl's secu-
rity guard identified Cimoch as the
man who stole the sneakers, which
were still on his feet.
The sneakers cost about $75, ac-
cording to the report.

Group encourages
student art appreciation
At an institu-
tion known for its
distinction in both
sports and scholar-
ship, University
of Florida arts orga-
nizations are strug-
gling to develop
younger audiences.
For many college
students, adoration Mallory
for the perform- Zuckerman
ing arts gets lost somewhere between
midterms and Midtown. Yet, without
the continued support and arts educa-
tion of young patrons, the performing
arts would cease to exist.
So how does the arts community
find and foster the next generation's
patrons?
The University of Florida Perform-
ing Arts Student Encore Circle was cre-
ated to engage students interested in the
arts, support other arts organizations
through volunteer efforts and coordi-
nate social events infused with meaning-
ful artistic learning. Members support
the arts while also receiving exclusive
benefits, like backstage tours.
My fellow Gators, consider the
worth of your time and money. The
habits we form here can encourage the
beginnings of a life-long appreciation
for the performing arts.

dent Encore Circle, visit http://www.

The University of Florida Air Force
ROTC Detachment 150 recently was
awarded the "Right of Line Trophy" for
having the best program out of 144 de-
tachments in the nation.
Detachment 150 also earned the award in
2007, for the first time in its 63-year history.
Col. Hubert D. "Griff" Griffin has led
the detachment since July 2006. Griffin
attributes the strong relationship between
ROTC and the UF/Gainesville communi-
ty as a major reason for the unit's success.
"We organized a Joint Service Color
Guard for every home football and
basketball games, and contrib-
uted to the cadet unfurling of a I *
huge American flag during the
National Anthem in front of
90,000-plus fans," Griffin said.
The detachment also won
first-place in the individual
category and second-place in
the team category at this year's Na-
tional Drill Competition.
"Our drill team is just one example,"
Griffin said. "In every area, we strive to be
out front."

Best Buddies member Brian Carter (center) visits the Delta Delta Delta sorority
house during UF's Ghouls, Goblins and Greeks event.

Sororities provide fun evening

for Gainesville community
Recently, princesses, super heroes and a dozen mini-Tim Tebows descended upon the University
of Florida's Panhellenic Drive from 5 to 8 p.m. for the annual event, Ghouls, Goblins and Greeks.
Organized by the Junior Panhellenic division, the community event is known as a safe place where
children and adults enjoy trick-or-treating together. It has been a Gainesville tradition for more than
10 years.
One group that attended this year was Best Buddies. The group matches university students with
individuals from the Gainesville community who have intellectual and developmental disabilities,
such as Down syndrome.
Part of an international organization, the UF chapter's typical activities include students calling
their buddies for weekly phone chats, and taking their buddies to the movies, Lake Wauburg and
various community events throughout the year. The buddies' ages range from 14 to 70.
Amanda Chin, president of UF's Best Buddies and a junior hospitality management major, loves
taking the buddies to Ghouls, Goblins and Greeks.
"Our buddies know they are getting spoiled," said Chin. "They all seem to love it, and being with
everyone and the community."
A couple of the buddies especially love the attention from the sorority girls and they can be quite
the flirts, Chin said.
All 16 sororities provided fun-filled activities for the trick-or-treaters.
The perfectly manicured lawns of the sorority houses were transformed for the evening into
themes such as Toy Story, Monsters Inc. and the Flintstones. For safety reasons, Panhellenic Drive
was barricaded from automobile traffic.
Children of all ages could be seen pulling their parents or guardians to the next house, so they
could put one "last" piece of candy into their bags. Colorful streamers and paper monkeys hung in
trees and danced in the wind during a truly magical October evening.
Carlene Chase of Micanopy brought her daughter to the event for the second year.
"I bring my daughter here because it is a nice and safe neighborhood to trick-or-treat," Chase said.

WUFT-FM sees decline in donations at pledge drive


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator org

UF raised almost $50,000 less than
last year in its fall pledge drive for
WUFT-FM, the university-owned
radio station that recently dropped
its classical music programming in
favor of more news and talk shows.
While UF pointed to the slump-
ing economy and shorter pledge
sessions, the leader of a local group
opposed to the station's program-
ming changes said the decrease in
donations can be attributed to a lack


of support for the new format.
Over a total of 11 days from late
October to Friday, UF pulled in
about $83,000, said Paul Gordon, the
interim executive director of the Di-
vision of Multimedia Properties in
the College of Journalism and Com-
munications.
Last fall, the take was about
$132,000 in 12 days of pledging.
Gordon said the decrease had
a lot to do with the economy and
shorter pledge segments, as well as
one fewer day of pledging.
UF officials have also said they
expected a decline in listenership


and donations initially, which is in
line with what other stations across
the country that
have switched
from music to
news program-
ming have expe-
rienced.
Gordon said
he expects dona-
Gordon tions to pick up
again next fall
and said UF does not regret making
the changes.
"We're absolutely convinced that
what we're doing is the right thing,"


he said.
John Wright, dean of the journal-
ism college, also pointed out in an
e-mail that almost 30 percent of the
contributions came from new do-
nors.
According to Gordon, this fall's
numbers are actually better than
UF expected and, he said, combined
with other factors, the station should
not take a big financial hit.
For example, he said, fewer peo-
ple accepted the gifts that typically
come with donations, more contri-
butions were made online where
they cost less to process and 11


positions were recently eliminated
from the station, which reduced the
station's expenses.
Sue Yelton, the leader of a group
that has protested the station's
changes, said she doesn't buy UF's
claims that the economy and shorter
pledge segments had a huge effect
on this year's donations. The econ-
omy was bad last year too, she said,
but that didn't stop people from do-
nating in near-record numbers.
"I think that our community has
made it clear that we support the
mix of music and talk that we had
originally," she said.


Investigation reveals different man as shooting suspect


By KATHERINE BEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
kbein@alllgator org

The Alachua County Sheriff's Office
dropped charges against a man arrested for
attempted murder Friday after further inves-


tigation led them to believe he was falsely ac-
cused.
Stephen McNeill, 20, was accused of shoot-
ing Glenn Altman in the face when the victim
picked him out of a photo line-up.
However, investigation led to McNeill's
release and the arrest of Corey Conner, 18, in


Hemando County, Alachua Sheriff's Office Lt.
Steve Maynard said.
Local "We don't stop investigating
News just because a victim said, 'he
did it,'" Maynard said.
Conner was given away by his accomplice,
Cameron Byard, 20, who helped Conner rob


the victim under the pretense of visiting to
purchase marijuana on Oct. 20, Maynard said.
Upon being read his rights, Conner con-
fessed to the robbery and shooting the victim,
Maynard said.
Altman was released from the hospital
without permanent injury, Maynard said.

Senators get silly


with assassin game


By ANDREW NORRIS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Emily Hunt has killed two stu-
dent senators and has her eyes set
on another.
Her can of glow-in-the-dark Sil-
ly String always at the ready, she's
foiled attempts at assassination
while she prepares her next kill.
Hunt, a Progress Party senator,
isn't the only one with a hit list.
Armed only with Silly String,
about 50 student senators are par-
ticipating in a game called Assas-
sin.
Starting midnight last Wednes-
day, senators were assigned a "hit"
and were told to assassinate or be
assassinated.
Senate President Pro-Tempore
Naadira Renfroe said she thought
the game could serve as a team-
building exercise.
Renfroe's game assigned each
participating senator with another
senator they had to "kill," which
entails spraying the assigned tar-
get with Silly String until they sur-
render their can. When a senator is
eliminated, his or her hit is assigned
to the assassin who made the kill.
The rules of the game establish
certain off-limit areas, such as class-


rooms, bathrooms and the third and
second floors of the Reitz Union.
Renfroe fell victim to her own
game when she was eliminated the
first day.
"I guess my excuse is that three
senators corroborated together to
make sure I died," she said. "It just
shows the teamwork that goes into
being successful in this game."
This is something embraced by
all three parties in the Senate, Ren-
froe said, with
senators from
each party par-
ticipating in the
game.
"I think the
game has been
Renfroe very fun first of
all, it's been a
blast," Hunt said. "More than any-
thing, it's a great way to connect
with people I don't normally con-
nect with."
This is the first time the Senate
has played Assassin. Although the
game is still on, Renfroe deems it
a success and hopes to make Silly
String an essential tool in Senate se-
mesters to come.
"I hope that this is something
that can be a tradition for each new
session of Senate," Renfroe said.


Locals react to House vote


Health decision left to Senate


By CJ PRUNER
Alligator Writer

In a major victory for Dem-
ocrats, the U.S. House of Rep-
resentatives passed a bill late
Saturday night that calls for
a $1.1 trillion overhaul of the
health care industry over the
next 10 years.
The passage of the bill,
which is more than 2,000 pag-
es, has been met with both zeal
and disgust.
Many Democrats view the
bill as a necessity that will al-
low millions of Americans
to acquire health insurance
with help from the govern-
ment. Most Republicans, on
the other hand, are wary of the
program's hefty price tag and
call for increased government
presence.
Ben Cavataro, the president
of the Florida College Demo-
crats and vice president of UF's
chapter, saw Saturday's pas-
sage as a victory in America's
quest to obtain quality health
care while reducing the fed-
eral deficit in the long term.
"It's great to see the House
pass reform and move past the


scare tactics used by the other
side," he wrote in an e-mail.
"A public insurance option
would control costs and keep
insurers honest."
According to Cavataro, the
health reform will replace a
current system that he believes
isn't working for America.
"When insurance compa-
nies can take people off cover-
age once they get
Local sick, things need
News to change," he
said.
But Bryan Griffin, chairman
of the UF College Republicans,
sees the bill as a fiscally irre-
sponsible, desperate attempt
by Democrats to bolster re-
election campaigns.
"[Speaker of the House
Nancy] Pelosi doesn't care
about listening to what the
people have to say; all she
cares about is getting this
through without anyone get-
ting a chance to read what the
bill actually says," he said.
"It's a complete farce."
The conservative response,
Griffin argued, is governmen-
tal support for nonprofit orga-
nizations through tax incen-


tives, not a federally regulated
overhaul.
"Now is do-or-die time for
America," he said. "We need
to vote out the people who
are trying to run this garbage
through."
Despite the victory in the
House, the health care over-
haul faces a Senate vote that,
according to UF political sci-
ence professor Richard Con-
ley, could be a challenge.
Thirty-nine Democrats voted
against the bill in the House,
and the Senate, according to
Conley, is a whole new politi-
cal ballgame.
"If I was in Vegas I would
bet about 40-60 on this thing
getting through," he said.
"The big question is whether
Harry Reid can convince the
Blue Dog Democrats and the
independents to go along with
this."
According to Conley,
Americans should expect
more turmoil in the upcoming
months.
"There's an old saying
that those who are squea-
mish should stay away from
sausage factories and legisla-
tures," Conley said. "It's going
to be a battle."

Cruel Courts

Fla. judicial system should

rethink how it tries teens

Three South Florida teenagers who stand accused of setting
another teen on fire will be charged as adults, according
to the Associated Press. Denver Jarvis and Matthew Bent,
both 15, and Jesus Mendez, 16, were charged with one count
each of attempted second-degree murder on Monday.
The Broward County State Attorney's office accuses Jarvis of
pouring rubbing alcohol on 15-year-old Michael Brewer, while
Mendez lit the boy on fire and Bent directed the attack.
The altercation stemmed from an argument over a video
game and escalated when the victim accused the defendants of
trying to steal his father's bicycle.
We fully appreciate the seriousness of these allegations. The
victim sustained burs over 65 percent of his body and is still in
critical condition. He will likely suffer for the rest of his life as a
result of this horrendous attack.
But the choice to try these children as adults is a mistake,
and yet another example of a widespread problem in Florida's
judicial system.
In transferring this case to adult criminal courts, the judicia-
ry is taking the position that these children are beyond juvenile
rehabilitation. It is unreasonable to assume that at the age of 15,
or even at 16 in the case of one of the defendants, these children
are unredeemable.
To put them into the adult prison system, which is no doubt
where they will end up after extended trials and lengthy ap-
peals processes, is entirely counterproductive.
Florida prisons are not the place that troubled child crimi-
nals will receive the therapy necessary to give them a chance at
a normal life outside of prison. On the contrary, they will likely
emerge as hardened adult criminals.
Further, in choosing to try the teens as adults, the court ex-
poses them to the harsher sentences available in adult court; an
attempted second-degree murder charge carries a maximum
sentence of 30 years.
If these teens are found guilty, we believe they deserve seri-
ous punishment (not to mention serious psychological rehabili-
tation). But the sentences that many Florida juvenile offenders
receive are clearly excessive.
This decision comes on the same day that the Supreme
Court began hearing arguments about whether juveniles can be
locked away forever for their crimes.
The two cases before the Supreme Court involve Florida
men serving life terms with no chance of parole for crimes com-
mitted while they were teenagers. Their lawyers argue that
life sentences for non-homicide crimes, when given to people
so young, are cruel and unusual a violation of the Constitu-
tion. They argue that young people have a greater capacity to
change, that they are redeemable.
As a state that does not quite share those views, Florida is
home to more than 70 percent of the nation's juvenile defen-
dants who are serving life sentences for crimes other than ho-
micide. With just more than a 6 percent share of the total U.S.
population, the disproportionate number of juvenile life sen-
tences that Florida hands down is shocking.
We don't want to paint these juveniles as innocent victims.
Joe Sullivan, one of the men included in the Supreme Court
case, is serving life in prison for raping an elderly woman after
a home invasion. An act like this is almost beyond comprehen-
sion. But Sullivan was 13 years old. It is unreasonable to expect
a boy this young to fully understand these actions and outra-
geous to give him a life sentence.
The other defendant, Terrance Graham, was implicated in
armed robberies when he was 16 and 17. The fact that even less-
er crimes like this are receiving life sentences demonstrates that
changes need to be made to Florida's judicial procedures.
Is Florida's problem cruel teens or cruel courts?

Column

'Support the troops' not just a phrase


tomorrow is Veterans Day. Support the troops.
To be honest, I feel a little uncomfortable saying
that. "Support the troops" has become such a meaning-
less phrase a vague slogan that's easy to print on magnetic
yellow ribbons but seemingly difficult to translate into any-
thing substantive that it almost sounds insincere speaking
it aloud, the same way a reflexive, thoughtless "I love you"
can mean just the opposite.
The phrase is too often used as a rhetorical weapon, as
shorthand for questioning someone's patriotism and taking
an unearned moral high ground. When used this way, telling
someone to support the troops carries the implication that the
person to whom you're speaking isn't supporting the troops
and that you by virtue of being able to accusingly repeat
three words are in a position to evaluate their appreciation
for their country and those who serve it.
Maybe worst of all, saying "support the troops" makes it
sound like "the troops" is a single, monolithic entity that
the troops act and think uniformly, have identical beliefs and
values, and have the same experiences and backgrounds.
Not only is this clearly false, but it helps foster the notion
that supporting the troops is a black-and-white proposition
- that there's only one political position, course of action or
worldview that constitutes being pro-troops, and everything
else is anti-troops. And thinking of the troops in this way de-
humanizes them. It's easier to send a vague, abstract notion
of "troops" to war and read in a breaking-news graphic that
"troops" have been killed if you forget or ignore that they're
individual people with individual lives.
I've found that the way to make saying "I love you,"
which has been appropriated and monetized by countless
Hallmark cards and jewelry commercials, less cheap and
more meaningful is to explain what I mean when I say it.
And while I'm not sure the same holds true for "support the
troops," it's worth a try.
By no means is this a definitive or exhaustive list, and I
won't even pretend it's an inarguable list. You are more than


S welcome to disagree, you are more
than encouraged to create your own
list, and you have my thanks for in-
dulging me:
I think supporting the troops
means not trivializing the plight of
Joe Dellosa those serving overseas and the heart-
letters@alligatororg ache of their families by using those
feelings to promote a discount retailer
or an defense contractor in a TV com-
mercial. War and those involved in it do not constitute an
Integrated Marketing Communications strategy.
I think supporting the troops means saying something
when you think military action is imprudent or unnecessary,
and when you think the lives of servicemen and service-
women will needlessly be put in danger. It's patriotic, even
if you disagree. I think supporting the troops means getting
outraged when women in the military are disproportionate-
ly more likely to be raped or sexually assaulted when serving
than the general population. It's inexcusable when a service
member has to feel as wary of someone serving alongside
them as someone against them.
But perhaps most importantly, I think supporting the
troops means remembering that each member of the military
is a person with his or her own story. Each joined the military
for his or her own reasons. Each has family and friends who
are hoping for a safe return. Each has his or her own views
on the war. And each has hopes and dreams that extend be-
yond the battlefield. Supporting the troops doesn't mean the
deification of the troops. In fact, I'd argue that any deification
does more harm than good. Whatever our beliefs about war
or the military, supporting the troops means acknowledging
that they're real people doing a really difficult job that we all
wish didn't have to exist.
Support the troops.

Letters to the Editor
Republicans aren't too
conservative
Matthew Christ needs to learn a
thing or two about the political ide-
ology of Americans before he writes
another column. In his latest one,
"Republicans should move away
from fringe," he seems to be under
the impression that this country
leans moderate to left, and therefore
the Republicans lost the presidential
election. With every column of his I
read, I find myself questioning his
understanding of what a conserva-
tive is. He seems to think that we are
all "Bible-thumping," overzealous
patriots, and I for one resent his at-
tempts to pigeonhole us.
According to an October Gal-
lup poll, 40 percent of Americans
identify themselves as conservative,
36 percent as moderate and only
20 percent as liberal. Republicans
didn't lose the last election because
they became too conservative; they
lost it because they moved away
from conservative principles.
Too many Republican politicians
want to straddle political ideology,
thinking they are playing it safe.
This is what has hurt the party the
most, and if they don't come back to
their conservative principles, they
will lose more elections. Conserva-
tives come from all walks of life. Not
all of us are rich, "Bible-thumping"
white guys. I'm a conservative Lib-
ertarian, a humanist and a person
of principle who will not straddle
ideology to appease liberals, as so
many moderate Republicans do.

WUFT-FM should rethink change
in format
In a report compiled in June, con-
sultants advising John Wright, the
dean of UF's College of Journalism
and Communications, suggested a
format change to WUFT-FM would
only lose $52,000 in membership dol-
lars the first year ($26,000 per semes-
ter). Sadly, this semester's drive fell
short. It represented a loss of more
than $49,000 compared to fall 2008.
That is a nearly a 40 percent reduc-
tion in pledge dollars; the number
of pledges fell by 40 percent as well.
The fall pledge drive brought in 29
percent less than the much weaker
spring 2009 pledge drive.
Big donations from the dean
and his circle of insiders, along
with pledges from the university,
couldn't stop the bleeding. While
the state of the economy is certainly
responsible for some of the losses,
the hemorrhaging of membership
dollars highlights a bigger problem:
A large portion of the community
has lost faith in WUFT-FM. It is time
to re-evaluate the format change and
consider the community's needs.
While some of the additions
have proven worthwhile, others just
don't add up. It is time to consider
adding classical and jazz music back
into the schedule, even if only for a
block per day. The dean's argument
of increasing student involvement
has not panned out; more students
were cut than added. Why not add
some student talk shows in place of
expensive NPR or BBC program-
ming? Dean John Wright, please go
back to the drawing board.

College Republicans tear down Berlin Wall replica


* THE WALL FELL 20 YEARS AGO
ON MONDAY.

By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

The Berlin Wall came tumbling down
again Monday afternoon.
Members of the College Republicans
constructed and tore down a Berlin Wall
replica on the Plaza of the Americas to
commemorate the 20th anniversary of its
fall.
The wall consisted of 36 cardboard
boxes spray-painted with graffiti words
like "Communism" and "Marxism."
"These are the things that we're out
here trying to crush, trying to bring
down," said Johnathan Lott, vice chair-
man for the College Republicans.
As members of the organization put
together the wall, others manned a table
filled with literature about the club and
the Young America's Foundation, a con-
servative youth organization.
Bryan Griffin, the club's president, re-
cited former President Ronald Reagan's
"Tear Down this Wall" speech to a crowd
of about 30 who gathered between fifth


and sixth periods.
After he finished, Griffin explained
the symbolic purpose of the replica and
encouraged the crowd to join him in tear-
ing it down.
"I made a request of people to be vigi-
lant in watching for the construction of
another Berlin Wall or walls of sort that
impede democracy in the world and
even our own country," Griffin said.
Members of the crowd rushed for-
ward and pushed the boxes to the
ground while everyone else cheered and
clapped.
"It's not so much about the wall it-
self," Lott said. "It's more
On about the symbolism be-
Campus hind what we're doing."
Lott said that the replica
of the wall represented the oppression
and restoration of liberties for the people
of East Germany and the importance
in continuing to fight for liberty every-
where.
Griffin said he was pleased with the
crowd who supported the College Re-
publicans and participated in the com-
memoration.
"If it stuck and made a difference in
one person, then I think it served our
purpose," he said.


The UF College Republicans set up a mock Berlin Wall on the Plaza of the Americas Monday
to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the wall coming down.


UF RESEARCH

UF professor's hybrid fruit aims to hit supermarket shelves


By JENNIFER MARIETTA
Alligator Contributing Writer

A successful crossbreed of two citrus fruits
has left a sweet taste of accomplishment in
the mouths of its inventors.
The Sugar Belle is the first crossbred citrus
variety that UF is releasing to the public. Bred
in late October, the fruit is part Clementine -
a small mandarin and part Minneola a
cross between a grapefruit and tangerine.
Fred Gmitter, the fruit's breeder and UF
professor of Citrus Genetics and Breeding,
said the fruit is a vibrant red-orange color.


It thrives in the Florida climate and is ripe
from November to January.
The fruit has been in the works for sev-
eral years on the premises of the UF Citrus
Research and Education Center in Lake Al-
fred, the biggest off-campus research center
in UF's Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences.
With the fruit successfully crossbred and
grown, focus has turned to getting the prod-
uct recognized in the retail market.
The fruit has 40 to 60 percent more vita-
min C than its rival, the tangerine.
It also possesses carotenoid, the com-


pound that makes carrots orange, and ac-
cording to medical research, improves heart
health and cancer protection.
The Sugar Belle is also
resistant to the alteraria
fungus, which usually at-
tacks the Minneola fruit,
creating black spots on
the leaves and fruit from a
lack of photosynthesis and
taints the fruit.
Gmtter There are five growers
across the state of Florida in the process of
receiving their license to grow the fruit, said


Peter Chaires, executive director of New Va-
rieties Development and Management Corp.
The whole process of getting Sugar Belles
to a full-fledged seasonal fruit will take about
three to four years, Chaires said, which is the
time needed to license and grow trees.
Gmitter said 70 percent of the Sugar
Belle's profits will go back into the research
program, 20 percent will go to the inventors
as compensation for creating the fruit and
10 percent will go to the Florida Foundation
Seed Producers Inc., a non-profit organiza-
tion that helps with the crossbreeding pro-
cess.

are sponsoring free blood sugar
screenings and awareness events
to celebrate November as Diabetes
Awareness Month.
Diabetes is a disease in which
the body does not properly use or

Last year, more than 300 people

risks and complications
and knowing who is at risk
could help you or someone

Dr. Desmond Schatz

Parker said.


The best ways for people to com-

Dr. Desmond Schatz, medical
director at the UF Diabetes Center
and associate chairman of pediat-

Ballots for annexation


referendum due tonight


* THE AREA INCLUDES ABOUT 1,200
ACRES IN EAST GAINESVILLE.

By DAVID TINTNER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Residents of an area in east Gainesville have
been living outside the city limits for years. That
may change, however, depending on how citi-
zens vote on an annexation referendum.
Ballots for the referendum must be turned in
at the Alachua County Supervisor of Elections
by 7 tonight.
The referendum proposes annexing about
1,200 acres of unincorporated Alachua County
into the city of Gainesville. It would also add
about 3,000 additional residents to the city.
Ballots were mailed out on Oct. 21 to the res-
idents of the proposed annexation area, which
lies just to the east of Southeast 27th Street and
south of East University Avenue, except a small
section that extends into northeast Gainesville.
The residents of the unincorporated area cur-
rently receive some city services like Regional
Transit System buses but do not have a voice in
city elections, said Gainesville spokesman Bob


Woods.
"Right now, those decisions are being made
without the input of citizens of that area because
they simply do not have legal standing to vote
for city elected officials," Woods said.
If the annexation passes, City Commissioner
Scherwin Henry of 1st District would represent
the area, Woods said.
As of Monday night, 663 ballots have been
received of the 2,069 mailed
Around out, said Pam Carpenter,
Gainesville supervisor of elections for
Alachua County.
Although it was estimat-
ed to cost roughly the same price as a traditional
one-day election, the Supervisor of Elections de-
cided to have residents vote via mail-in ballots.
"Historically when we've run mail ballot
elections in the past, we've seen an increase
in voter turnout compared to the turnouts we
see when we open a polling place," Carpenter
said. "When you send the ballot directly to their
home, it's right there in front of them and gives
them the opportunity to think about it and more
of an opportunity to vote."
Carpenter said that the results of the election
will be announced by about 7:30 or 8 tonight.


Cuts are on top of 58 layoffs


BUDG ET, from page 1

The newly announced cuts are the
last piece of UF's budget cut puzzle.
Originally, when UF announced
in May that it had to cut $42 million,
there were about $16.6 million in cuts
that were still undecided.
Officials said they hoped the rest
could be cut through university-wide
administrative initiatives, like cutting
summer pay for faculty and offer-
ing an early retirement plan, both of
which are being implemented.
Changes to UF's sick leave plan
were also considered but ultimately
dropped after faculty protest.
The only other option, Glover said,
was to cut more from the colleges.
"At some point we ran out of ideas
or ways to do cuts centrally, and so
we had to go back to the colleges," he
said.
The additional cuts are on top of
about 58 layoffs and 150 vacant posi-


tion eliminations UF announced in
May. The number of layoffs has since
shrunk to 41 9 faculty and 32 staff.
It's unclear how many positions have
been eliminated so far.
John Biro, head of the UF faculty
union, said he thinks the latest plan
to cut the budget
hasn't been prop-
erly explained to
the public.
"There has been
no discussion, no
comment about it,"
Biro said.
Joe Glover He also said UF
has the money to
keep the positions filled, but instead
it has chosen to spend its money hir-
ing new faculty, pointing to UF's plan
to use $10 million in stimulus funds
to hire up to 100 faculty.
"If I'm short of the money to pay
my mortgage, I don't go out and buy
a Hummer," he said.

Bench leads UF in rout of Webber Int.

E THE RESERVES SCORED 49 POINTS.

By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@allgator org

Amid all the hype surrounding the new-
look starting lineup, the Gators' bench players
showed Monday night the strides they made
this offseason.
Ray Shipman scored 16 points and Chan-
dler Parsons added 12 and a team-high nine re-
bounds as Florida cruised past NAIA opponent
Webber International 104-53 in its final exhibi-
tion game in the O'Connell Center.
Freshman guard Kenny Boynton led the
team with 25 points in only his second college
game, but UF's reserves brought the team some
much-needed energy after a slow start.
"I think we've got a great bench," said Par-
sons, who entered the game with his team down
15-11 before going on 15-0 run. "I think we're
deep. I think we've got size. I think we got ath-
leticism, we got energy, guys that can play de-
fense, guys that can shoot the ball."
Shipman, who averaged 3.8 points per game
last year, provided a spark off the bench, slash-
ing into the lane on offense and slamming down
dunks in transition. All of Shipman's seven field
goals against the outmatched Warriors came on
dunks or layups.
The 6-foot-5 guard, who scored 10 in UF's
exhibition opener, whipped himself into shape
during the offseason, dropping from 225 pounds
to 205 and coming to terms with his role on the
team, something he struggled with during his "
first year in Gainesville.
The sophomore put his improved condition-
ing on display Monday night with an array of
impressive moves to the basket.
"When we get Ray playing like he did to-
night, I think we become a lot more athletic, a
lot quicker and a much, much better defensive
team on the perimeter than we were a year ago,"
UF coach Billy Donovan said.
With 6:08 left in the first half, point guard Er- Andrew Stanfill Alligator Staff
ving Walker's comer 3-pointer bounced off the UF guard Ray Shipman dunks during Florida's 104-53 win over Webber Inter-

Gators get No. 3 seed in NCAA Tourney


By TYLER JETT
Alligator Writer
tjett@alligator org

If the Florida soccer team reaches the
second round of the NCAA Tournament
this weekend, it might be the favorite on
paper alone.
If UF defeats Illinois State and Ohio State
wins against Oregon State in the first round
Friday, the Gators will play the Buckeyes on
OSU's home field Nov. 15.
When the tournament seeding was an-
nounced Monday night, the Gators received


a No. 3 seed. Despite being the highest
ranked team in its opening weekend re-
gional, Florida will travel
to Ohio State, another
team in the regional.
The Buckeyes are un-
seeded, as the NCAA
only ranks the top four
teams in each bracket.
But the Gators insist
Fraine circumstances beyond
their control, like the lo-
cation of their matches this weekend, will
not affect them.


SThe NFL is evaluating whether or not Oakland coach Tom Cable needs man-
datory counseling. Somehow counseling comes before a firing on the chain of
events for the Raiders. ... Isiah Thomas tried his hardest to get out of playing
UNC in FIU's season opener. His team responded by keeping it close in a 88-72
loss. I guess his team didn't need protection from the defending champs.


"If we got to play in Buckeye stadium
and show the Buckeyes what it's all about,
then that's fine with us," goalkeeper Katie
Fraine said. "Our school has done it before,
and we can do it again."
The team that hosts the regional is based
on proximity to the other teams in that re-
gional as opposed to seeding.
Coach Becky Burleigh said she obvious-
ly would have preferred if the Gators could
play in Gainesville this weekend. Beyond
that, she has no vested interest in how the

Tebow's path


to win second


bronze statue
shortly before last year's Academy
Awards, I remember listening to
an NPR broadcast that featured
a panel of respected film critics dis-
cussing who would take home the top
honors.
When it came to the Award for Best
Actress, they all agreed: Kate Winslet
should win for her role in "The Read-
er."
I haven't seen it, and I only watched
one of the other nominees' perfor-
mances, but I disagreed completely
based on their reasoning.
Winslet deserved it, they said, be-
cause, "It's just
her turn. She has
earned it."
This is the
manner in which
people make
these kinds of
Mike McCalldecisions, and I
McCall-in' It expect the same
Like I See It kind of thought
mmccall@allgator org process when it
comes to Heis-
man Trophy voting.
Just as there are no meaningful sta-
tistics to compare the artistic integrity
of movies, we don't really have any
for the Heisman either.
Sure, we can look at numbers. But
they don't all face the same competi-
tion. And should their teams' records
count? Do they sacrifice gaudy stats
for wins? Does that matter?
I don't agree with the process, but
that's how college football works.
With that in mind, here's what UF's
Tim Tebow needs to do to make sure
he leaves New York City with another
hunk of metal next month.

KEEP WINNING: Thanks to Notre
Dame quarterback Jimmy Clausen's
rough outing last week, what will mat-
ter most come voting time is whether
Texas' Colt McCoy, Alabama's Mark
Ingram, Boise State's Kellen Moore
and Tebow are still undefeated.
Tebow can knock off Ingram if the
Gators beat the Crimson Tide for the
conference title, and from there, he
just needs to provide enough stats for
voters to feel justified in voting for
him.

bracket gets drawn up.
"To me, it doesn't really matter
who we play, where we play, when
we play I'm just ready to play,"
Burleigh said.
With only four days to prepare for
Illinois State, Burleigh said the team
will try to get film so it can study the
Redbirds, who received an automatic
bid into the tournament when they
won the Missouri Valley Conference
Championship on Sunday.
The road trip to Columbus, Ohio,
could be troubling for the Gators, as
the team struggled earlier this season
away from Gainesville. After winning
the season-opener at
Miami on Aug. 21,
UF did not win a road
game until Oct. 18 at
Soccer Georgia. After the vic-
tory in Athens, Florida
won its next two away
games, and the Gators claim their
traveling woes are behind them.
"We got all our kinks out on the
road and we figured it out, so we
should be set," freshman Holly King
said.
King is one of 10 UF freshmen,
and the team's upperclassmen are
trying to prepare the young players
for their first NCAA Tournament.
Fraine said the key to success is hav-
ing tunnel vision, not worrying about
your opponent's style of play.
The young players also need to
be ready for any elements that may
come with a mid-November game in
Ohio.
"We're going to play in rain, sleet
or snow just like the postman," Fraine
said.


I I M F,1 SN 'SAT n. I


1 A Mark Ingram (16) 1,148 rushing yards, 6.6 yards p
8 TD, 24 receptions, 216 receiving yards, 3 TD
Ingram continues to domino
matter how his quarterback is i:
He is sixth in the country with 127.
per game, but his average of 6.
per rush is good for second best
backs with 165 carries or mor
5-foot-10 sophomore had no p
with LSU's defense, racking up 144 yards on 22
The most impressive thing is Ingram's ability to shin'
games he is averaging 141.8 yards per game in
games, despite playing in arguably the best de
conference.
A Case Keenum (8) 158.92 passer rating, 3,815
passing yards, 28 TD, 5 INT, 95 rushing yards, 2.3
ypc, 3 TD
No one can argue with
Keenum's raw numbers he
I leads the nation in passing
yards and touchdowns. He
currently sits at No. 6 in passing
efficiency and also has been
stingy with interceptions,
averaging one every 91.6 attempts, making him
slightly better than Moore (89.3 attempts per INT)
and in a whole different class than Tebow (43.3).
The junior continued to put up video game-
esque numbers this past weekend, throwing for
522 yards, three TDs and no interceptions while
leading Houston to nine points in the final 21
seconds to top Tulsa 46-45.


V Kellen Moore (15) 169.35 passer rating, 2,259 yards, 67.5
completion percentage, 27 TD, 3 INT, -9 rushing yards, -0.5
ypc, TD
SMoore's two-week reign at the top
came to a close, likely due to no fault
of his own. The nation's most efficient
passer threw for 354 yards and three
touchdowns with one pick in Boise
State's 45-35 win over Louisiana Tech.
The lefty sophomore appears to have
the best case for a non-BCS conference player, however
- he has one fewer TD than Keenum despite 190 fewer
attempts.


4 Tim Tebow (5) 156.59 passer rating, 1,531
passing yards, 65.9 completion percentage,
S1 TD, 4 INT, 578 rushing yards, 3.7 ypc, 9 TD
Playing on an undefeated
and top-ranked team has its
perks. Tebow stayed at the
same place in our Heisman
Watch despite an average
game from the only senior
on our list. He threw for
208 yards and a touchdown and ran for
another score against Vanderbilt, although
he had just 27 rushing yards on 16 carries.
He is currently No. 8 in passing efficiency
among qualified players, his best ranking in a
statistical category, but when your team has
won 19 games in a row, it doesn't take much
to impress.


5 A LaMichael James (4) 1,043 rushing yards, 7 ypc, 8 TD, I receptions, 128 yards
One of the season's biggest surprises makes our Heisman Watch for the very first
time. Many people might not know James, who stepped up at running back
for Oregon when LeGarrette Blount was suspended after the season opener.
They ought to learn his name fast. The 5-foot-9 freshman didn't take too long
to get acclimated he has eclipsed 100 yards rushing in six of his last seven
games. Two weeks ago, he ran for 183 yards in Oregon's upset over USC, and
this past weekend he finished with 214 yards from scrimmage on 22 touches (18
rush, 4 rec) in the Ducks' loss at Stanford.

Florida's special teams continue to gain
recognition, from inside the program and
out.
Sophomore kicker Caleb Sturgis was
named a semifinalist for the Lou Groza Col-
legiate Place-Kicker Award on Monday, this
coming less than two weeks after junior punt-
er Chas Henry was named to the Ray Guy
Award watch list.
Sturgis is four for four on field goals lon-
ger than 40 yards this season, and Henry al-
lowed his first punt return yards of the sea-
son against Vanderbilt.
UF coach Urban Meyer drew attention to
his team's overall special teams play at his
weekly Monday press conference, praising
the well-rounded job done by his coverage
and return units.
Plenty of young players like Jon Bostic,
Mike Gillislee, and Dee Finley have made a
name for themselves on special teams, but
the Gators trot out veteran defensive start-
ers like Joe Haden, Ahmad Black and Major
Wright as well.
"You have to be an accountable guy. If you
have issues, you won't be on (special teams),"
Meyer said. "If I don't trust you, there's no
chance you're getting near that team. You're
not getting in this (special teams) room if I
don't trust you. Our guys understand that,


kickoff coverage, punt return and kickoff re-
turn in that order of importance.

MUNROE REINJURES KNEE: Redshirt senior
safety Dorian Munroe missed Saturday's


ACL injury will end Munroe's career.
The safety missed 2008 with a tear in his
right knee and missed all but the Georgia
game this season after reinjuring the knee in
preseason workouts.


UF sophomore Caleb Sturgis is 17 of 20 on field goals, including four of four from lon-
ger than 40 yards. His 56-yarder against Georgia is the SEC's longest this year.


roza Award
"Dorian Munroe falls into the same cate-
gory as Ryan Stamper and Justin Trattou that
are players on our team that are all Gator,
man," Meyer said.

FUTURE COACHES: Meyer also commented
on the future of Trattou, a junior, and Stamp-
er, a senior, on Monday.
Even if an NFL career doesn't work out for
them, their coach thinks they have a bright
future in football.
"(Trattou) already has a job at Florida,
or somewhere as a coach. That's how much
respect we have for him," Meyer said. "He
understands the game. He's going to go play
for a while because he's just a competitor, but
his knowledge of special teams and his work
ethic this profession, I know I'm pushing
this, this profession needs Justin Trattou and
Ryan Stamper to go coach some day."
Stamper, who can play all three linebacker
positions, has previously said that coaching is
something he could see himself doing down
the road when his playing career is over.

TEBOW HEALTHIER THAN EVER: Quarterback
Tim Tebow is done with the pain-killing
shots he has had to take in the past.
Tebow said he feels healthier than he ever
has at this point in the season and no longer
takes any pain-killing injections.
"When I came off that shoulder surgery,
just training with coach (Mickey Marotti), he
did a really good job of training me to go out
there and take hits," Tebow said. "The type of
workouts that we've done and exercise, I feel
like coming into this season I was in the best
shape of my life."


UF FOOTBALL RECRUITING

Gators commit will play in U.S. Army All-American Bowl


By MICHAEL PIPITONE
Alligator Writer

As usual, the Gators have made
major noise on the recruiting front.
Cornerback Jaylen Watkins of
Cape Coral High is the first UF
commitment selected to play in the
U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
The all-star game will feature 90
of the nation's top high school foot-
ball players showcasing their skills
at the Alamodome in San Antonio
on January 9.
"Florida is getting a better per-
son than a player," Cape Coral
coach Mike Goebbel said.


The 6-foot-i, 172-pound four-
star recruit is listed as a corner-
back on Rivals.com but plays on
both sides of the ball for his high
school.
Versatility is a definite strength
for any recruit, according to ESPN
recruiting analyst Tom Luginbill.
A player has a better chance to
crack a college roster when he has
multiple tools.
"Far less chance to miss on a
guy," Luginbill said.
Watkins said he has the most
fun playing corner, although he
also lines up at receiver and re-
turns kicks.


As a junior, Watkins rushed for
329 yards and five touchdowns
while throwing for 419 yards and
five touchdowns.
He did all this
while thriving at
cornerback, tal-
lying 71 tackles
and three inter-
ceptions.
Watkins has
also been called
a leader that other players look up
to.
"Great leader by example on
and off the field," Goebbel said.
Watkins knows that when the


ball is in his hands late in the game,
he has the trust of his teammates to
lead them to victory.
"I feel like I have to be the lead-
er," Watkins said. "I haven't been
leading them wrong. They can
count on me."
Despite all the accolades for
his great play, Watkins still has to
work on some things.
"He's a little lean right now,"
Luginbill said. "He has to become
more physical of a football play-
er."
Luginbill believes Watkins is
capable of doing this. Every year
underweight recruits come to col-


lege weight rooms, follow a pro-
gram and see results that change
their game for the better.
The amount of top recruits UF
brings in each year creates heated
competition between teammates
for playing time.
Watkins likes the competition.
"Only way to get the best ability
out of you," Watkins said.
The big stage of the U.S. Army
All-American Bowl, televised on
NBC, has also hosted former UF
greats Chris Leak, Percy Harvin
and Tim Tebow when they were
seniors in high school. Leak won
MVP at the 2003 game.

UF MEN'S BASKETBALL

Webber shows fight early


Starting frontcourt struggles


By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Staff Writer
kmaristrl@allIgator org

Florida dominated Webber International
for 35 minutes Monday.
The first five minutes, however, were cause
for concern.
WIU's Tyrell Harper threw down a two-
handed dunk off a steal in transition to put
the Warriors up 9-3. After a missed jump shot
by UF power forward Alex Tyus, Harper
slammed home another dunk, this time out
of a broken press. And four possessions later,
WIU forward Marvin Williams added another
two-handed jam in a half-court set.
"That was good to happen to our team be-
cause here's a team that clearly at the level
they're at came in and hit us in the mouth
early in the game," UF coach Billy Donovan
said. "And it wasn't 'a high-major, Division I
conference game or nonconference game.' It
was a game against a team that came out with
a lot more aggressiveness than we did."


It's hard to learn anything from early season
games against significantly worse competition,
but the Gators were able to feel what it's like to
come out with less energy than an opponent.
Athleticism, size and talent overwhelmed
WIU over the course of the entire game, but
it may not be so easy to rebound later in the
year.
"Ugly. Just poor execu-
tion, poor focus," sopho-
more point guard Erving
Walker said. "That's totally
our fault, and we can't have
that for the regular season."
Donovan voiced concern
Donovan after UF's first game about
his team's ability to transi-
tion out of its full-court press into a half-court
defense. The Gators gave up 17 offensive re-
bounds to Saint Leo, and Monday, they com-
pletely missed assignments transitioning to
man-to-man defense, showing that playing
against small schools can still provide valuable
lessons.


HOOPS, from page 17

iron, but Shipman soared above the
rim to throw down a powerful putback
dunk.
Shipman said after the game he
missed a dunk exactly like that in prac-
tice earlier in the week, but Donovan
told him not to be afraid to take those
opportunities in a game, as he wouldn't
have had the energy or conditioning to
even attempt those plays last year.
Donovan said Shipman entered col-
lege with "entirely the wrong mental-
ity" and was more concerned about
his own statistics and doing what he
wanted to do, rather than focusing on
the role the team needed him to play.
"(UF assistant coach Richard) Pitino
told me, it's like 95 percent of freshmen
who come into college basketball are


dumbasses just like that. I was one of
those dumbasses," Shipman said. "But
now, I feel like I'm mature, and it's
helped me out a lot."
While Shipman was slashing
through the lane, Parsons and the rest
of UF's frontcourt
reserves made up
for a starting front-
Scourt that combined
Men's for half as many
Basketball turnovers (nine) as
points (18).
Sophomore cen-
ter Kenny Kadji added 11 points and
eight rebounds, and freshman forward
Erik Murphy contributed eight points,
four boards and a game-high six steals.
Parsons and Kadji were the team's
leading rebounders, helping the Gators
to a 49-31 advantage on the boards.


MCCALL, from page 17

SCORE: And for Tebow, stats
mean touchdowns. He's way be-
hind his 2007 passing numbers,
and he's on pace to fall 700 yards
shy of last year's total. His com-
pletion percentage and intercep-
tions look good, but he needs to
start getting in the end zone.
Eleven passing and nine rush-
ing TDs? That's really weak con-
sidering he accounted for seven
touchdowns in the 2007 South


Carolina game alone!
Luckily, this is an easy fix. All
it takes is a 10-minute talk with
the team. Jeff Demps, try to bust a
few long runs, but take a hint from
Chris Rainey and get run down at
the 3-yard line. Tebow can punch
it in from there.
Ditto for Brandon James on
kick returns and for defenders
after interceptions. With a tight
Heisman race, it's just uncalled
for and selfish for them to pursue
glory for themselves. Time to take


one for Tim, guys.

EMBARRASS SOMEONE: Short
of the kind of huge game he post-
ed against the Gamecocks two
years ago, Tebow needs an iconic
play or two.
That hasn't happened this year.
No jump-passes, and although he
has led some crucial drives, there
hasn't been anything crazy.
Right now, the most lasting
image of Tebow is his concus-
sion against Kentucky. He needs


another enduring moment to ri-
val that, and then the injury will
be remembered as an obstacle he
heroically overcame rather than a
low point.
Luckily, his best three chances
are ahead of him.
South Carolina: Tebow stiff-
arms his way to a 40-yard, zig-
zagging touchdown, grabs Steve
Spurrier's visor and spikes it to
the ground in celebration.
Florida State: He waits for an
FSU defender to talk some trash


the week of the game, then runs
him over and knocks his helmet
off. Some Seminole war paint on
the face would help too.
Alabama: Here, with everyone
watching and Heisman talk in
overdrive, Tebow needs to out-
rush Ingram and make a clutch
play late.
If he can follow this plan, the
award is all his.
If not, congratulations Colt Mc-
Coy! He may not have the num-
bers, but it's just his turn.
