FIU 3 FLORIDA 62


Gators romp, begin preparing for Senior Day

By KYLE MAISTRI ,
Alligator Staff Writer -
kmalstrl@alligator org

As the 62-3 score went final on Tim Tebow's second- &
to-last home game as a Gator, the quarterback could
feel his time winding down.
Tebow knows it's becoming more and more impor-
tant to make sure his successor, John Brantley, is ready
to take over the reins once he's gone.
The sophomore showed how far he has come as a
passer in the second half, going 9 for 13 for 146 yards
and three touchdowns, but Tebow was more concerned
with something else.
"I was actually trying to get Johnny to
go around shaking hands with me, but he
didn't want to," said Tebow, who takes a
victory lap around The Swamp after ev-
Football ery home victory. "But I'll get that tradi-
tion passed on."
Brantley gave Gators fans a short look at the fu-
ture of the team's passing attack against FIU (3-8, 3-4
Sun Belt) with touchdown strikes to redshirt freshmen
Omarius Hines and Frankie Hammond Jr. the first
of their careers but his reluctance to join the former
Heisman Trophy winner on his post-game jog around *
Florida Field shows the Tim Tebow era isn't over quite
yet.
"I've been waiting for three years now, but you
know what, I've just learned so much and I've taken it
all in these three years," Brantley said. "To sit behind
one of the greatest players in college football is a bless- Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff

Employee arrested for DUI


By MATT HARRINGER
Alligator Contributing Writer
A resident psychiatrist at UF's College of
Medicine was arrested early Sunday morning
for driving drunk and failing to stop after hit-
ting a pedestrian near Ben and Jerry's on Uni-
versity Avenue.
Marcus Anderson, 28, drove onto the side-
walk and hit 27-year-old law student Clay
Hodges as he was leaving 101 Cantina, accord-
ing to a police report.
Hodges said the vehicle hit his elbow and
the side mirror smashed into his ribs.
After hitting Hodges, Anderson hit a stop
sign, put his car in reverse and tried to drive


away, according to the report.

WUFT-FM to play live


music for the holidays


By MORGAN WATKINS
Alligator Contributing Writer

This holiday season WUFT-FM will
spread some cheer by broadcasting live
and recorded local music on its Hybrid
Digital 2 channel.
The UF radio channel will also stream
the performances on its Web site, wuft-
fm.org.
Performances include the Gainesville
Chamber Orchestra and the UF Sym-
phony Orchestra, HD2 program director
Richard Drake wrote in an e-mail.
The Symphony Orchestra was al-
ready recorded during a performance
on Nov. 12, orchestra music director and
conductor Raymond Chobaz wrote in an
e-mail.
The Gainesville Chamber Orchestra
was recorded by WUFT-FM during its
performance Friday at the University
Auditorium. The orchestra performed its

eighth annual "Got Beethoven?" concert,
a tribute to the famous composer.
Drake said the channel plans to turn
the program into an ongoing series that
runs throughout the year.
Drake, who has been working with
the local music community for the past
25 years, said he wanted to showcase
some of the area's talent through this
holiday program.
"The public should be excited about
this series because it's us people who

Drake said.


200 toothbrushes wanted


By MELISSA QUINN
Alligator Contributing Writer

When 12-year-old Hussein Muham-
mad felt pain in his molar, his mother
knew how to fix it. She tied a piece of
string to his tooth and yanked, hard.
She couldn't afford to take him to the
dentist, so instead she performed the
extraction herself.
His story prompted UF sophomore
Rahma Mkuu, who was born in Kenya,
to collect toothbrushes to send to the
country's residents.
Muhammad is one of the millions of
Kenyan residents who can't afford ad-
equate dental care, Mkuu said. She said
a majority of the population makes less
than $1 a day, making it near impossible
to buy even a toothbrush.
Mkuu started the project last month
and will continue to collect the tooth-
brushes until Dec. 7.


On Dec. 15, she will travel to Kenya
and distribute the toothbrushes to chil-
dren in Mombasa.
Her goal is to collect 200 toothbrush-
es, and so far she has 25.
She is receiving toothbrushes from
Health Occupation Students of Ameri-
ca, the Florida State Nursing School and
friends.
On Mkuu said she created
Campus a Facebook group that en-
courages students to do-
nate as well.
When families can buy toothbrush-
es, they use them for multiple years,
she said. While most Americans pur-
chase more than two toothbrushes per
year, most Kenyans can afford only one
toothbrush every three years. Providing
their families with food takes priority,
she said.
Those interested in donating can con-
tact Mkuu by e-mail at rmkuu@ufl.edu.

Students discourage smoking


By ERICA JOHNSON
Alligator Contributing Writer


UF students took a stand against smoking Friday
when they celebrated the Great American Smoke-
out on Turlington Plaza to raise awareness of the
dangers of smoking.
The Great American Smokeout is a national, an-
nual event put on by the American Cancer Society
the Thursday before Thanksgiving and challenges
smokers to not smoke for 24 hours.
Colleges Against Cancer, the group that coordi-
nates Relay for Life, held the event on Turlington
Plaza from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., said Michaela Val-
enti, the group's mission education chairwoman.
"We know that it's hard to quit smoking, so we
want people to know that it is getting easier," Val-
enti, a junior anthropology major, said. "There are
more medications out now, more counseling and it
is becoming more affordable."
Valenti said 13 percent of UF students smoke, so
one goal of the event was to ensure students were
reminded of the dangers of smoking.
In order to get the message out, students were


asked to spin a giant wheel to learn the disadvan-
tages of smoking and ways to quit.
Club members also gave students fliers with in-
formation on how to quit smoking.
But knowing the dangers isn't always enough.

"We know that it's hard to quit smok-
ing, so we want people to know that it is
getting easier."
Michaela Valenti
UFjunior anthropology major


Colleges Against Cancer member Alyssa San-
dler, a junior education major, was dressed as a gi-
ant cigarette that read, "Put a Chomp on Tobacco."
She said it is extremely frustrating for her when
she sees people who know the harm they're doing
to their bodies but still continue to smoke.
"I had a grandma die of cancer, and I had can-
cer myself twice when I was younger," she said. "I
want people to quit so they don't have to go through
what my grandma and I went through."


Gator creates networking site


* USERS CAN POST AND
BROWSE LISTINGS.

By GAIA BONINI
Alligator Contributing Writer

Shawn Joseph is looking for
buddies.
Not just for himself but for ev-
ery student at UF and colleges na-
tionwide.
Joseph, 25, a recent UF graduate,
is the founder of BuddySurfing.
com, an interactive social network-
ing Web site that allows users to
post and browse events happening
at their school and community.
Joseph said it's a sort of Face-
book-meets-Craigslist idea that he
thought of in January and debuted
at UF two weeks ago.
While anyone can join Buddy-
Surfing, Joseph divided the site
into collegiate users and other
users for safety and security pur-
poses.
Social networking among col-
lege students is different than net-
working among other groups of
people, he said, and their events
should be kept separate, as well.
Joseph said bulletin boards
plastered with fliers are an incom-
prehensible mess, and handouts
from the Reitz Union Colonnade
and Turlington Plaza most likely
end up in the trash. But Buddy-
Surfing allows organizations and
individuals to promote events on a
well-organized site.
Users simply choose their net-
works from a list of nearly every
college and university in the coun-
try, much like choosing a city on
Craigslist.
Then the users can browse
through events that are separated
into two categories work and
play which Joseph said is how
college students define their lives.
Work listings may be Student
Government events, job opportu-
nities or tutoring sessions, while
play events could be anything
from parties and nightlife to per-
sonal ads.
Users can link events to their Fa-


cebook statuses to get their friends
involved, he said.
Joseph said his biggest regret as
an undergraduate student was not
taking advantage of all the events
UF has to offer.
"This place is a gold mine for
social activities, and you don't re-
alize that until you're gone," he
said.
Joseph is the site's only investor


and said he spent a few thousand
dollars to get it running.
He graduated Spring 2008 with
a degree in biochemistry, and he
has a strong background in com-
puter science.
He worked for a year and a half
in stem-cell research at Shands at
UF and will start a graduate pro-
gram this Spring in pharmaceuti-
cal chemistry at UF.

Center makes up


for missed Mitzvahs


By DAVID TINTNER
Alligator Contributing Writer

When Taylor Newman
saw the red carpet, the DJ,
the photo booth and all of
her relatives, she finally
felt complete.
Last February, New-
man, a pre-dental senior at
UF, took advantage of an
opportunity she missed out
on more than seven years
before her Bat Mitzvah.
Usually, the event is
celebrated with a religious
ceremony and party and
marks when a child turns
13 and becomes a man or a
woman under Judaism.
However, growing up,
Newman was less con-
nected to Judaism than she
is now and didn't have a
celebration.
But fortunately for her,
Rabbi Berl Goldman and
his wife, Chanie, directors
of the Lubavitch-Chabad
Jewish Student and Com-
munity Center, started the
Bar and Bat Mitzvah pro-
gram last year to give stu-
dents who never had a Bar
or Bat Mitzvah a second
chance.
Newman was one of five
students to participate in
the first Bar/Bat Mitzvah
Bash, which was funded by
donations to the center.
"I never thought in a
million years I would have
a chance like this again af-
ter I missed it when I was
13," Newman said. "I'm so
grateful that I have."
The Goldmans are look-
ing for their next group of
students, and will begin
working with them in Jan-
uary. The program is free,
so anyone who is interested
can have the opportunity.
"The reality is there are
hundreds among the Jew-
ish student population
here that have not celebrat-
ed their Bar or Bat Mitzvah
yet, and it bothers them,"
Berl Goldman said.
To participate in the
program, students have to
attend a series of classes at
the center, where they dis-
cuss Jewish history and tra-
ditions, Hebrew and mod-
ern Jewish issues.
Berl Goldman said one
of the main reasons many
children don't have a Bar
or Bat Mitzvah when they
grow up is because they
didn't enjoy their Jewish


education.
He wants to change that
with his students.
"Don't forget these are
college students," he said.
"They're being offered sex,
rock 'n' roll and drugs. Ev-
ery other element of soci-
ety is vying for their atten-
tion."
Julie Kaufman, a UF
student who also partici-
pated in the program, said
her Bat Mitzvah was more
meaningful to her because
she had it when she was 21
- not 13.
"You don't under-
stand the significance of a
Bat Mitzvah when you're
younger," she said. "Reli-
gion wasn't really my pri-
ority then."
Kaufman didn't have a
Bat Mitzvah when she was
13 because she
Local was too busy
News and was not
really inter-
ested, she said.
But as she grew up, Ju-
daism became more im-
portant to her, and she was
embarrassed not to have
had a Bat Mitzvah.
"I just felt like there was
something missing," she
said. "It was something I
really wished I could go
back and do."
After Newman had her
Bat Mitzvah, she changed
her entire lifestyle, she
said.
She started following
the strict kosher dietary
laws.
"It's hard in
Gainesville," Newman
said. "I don't eat out or
anything anymore. I don't
know why I chose to do it. I
just know it feels right."
Newman also said she
noticed the Bar and Bat
Mitzvahs have changed
some of the students and
help them grow.
Many of the students
have also become more re-
ligious. Berl Goldman said
if students are motivated to
study and learn, they can
have the opportunity to
have their Bar or Bat Mitz-
vah at any age.
"By offering this pro-
gram, we want to tell stu-
dents it's never too late,"
he said. "You are Jewish,
you are important and your
Bar or Bat Mitzvah means
something."

UF study shows


religious left


more active

* UNIVERSITY OF NOTRE DAME, UNIVERSITY
OF CINCINNATI COLLABORATED WITH UF.

By JOEY FLECHAS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Religion plus politics doesn't necessarily equal
right-wing.
A new UF study conducted in collaboration with
the University of Notre Dame and the University of
Cincinnati reveals a diversity in political leanings
among religious voters that might not have been as
obvious before.
Kenneth Wald, UF political science professor and
collaborator on the study, said a religious left has be-
come more prominent over the recent years.
According to the study, voting trends among Chris-
tians have shifted more left than in the past.
"We're at a point in history where
U F the opportunities for the religious left
Research are better than before," he said.
However, he noted there has been
political diversity among those who practice a religion
for a long time.
"We're not claiming that we've found something
new," he said.
UF Levin College of Law student and Christian Le-
gal Society president Christine Pratt said she has no-
ticed a movement of Christians trying to work against
a stereotype that pegs them all down as hard-line con-
servatives.
"There are issues to the left of center that are val-
id," she said.
Even though her political views are mostly conser-
vative, she identifies with issues commonly touted by
liberals like social welfare and taking care of the en-
vironment.
Wald attributed some of the shifts in attitudes to
the younger members of evangelical groups, as they
have criticized their leadership more.


Ticket presales break Fandango's record


TWILIGHT, from page 1


faux-fang-flaunting, "Twilight"-obsessed fans, made
"The Twilight Saga: New Moon" the No. 1 advance tick-
et-selling movie in Fandango.com history shortly after 8
p.m. Nov. 14 more than five days before the movie
was released.
They have since surpassed all presale ticket records,
according to Harry Medved, Fandango.com spokesman.

'4`IbIqkq


Meagan Duff, 25, walks to her theater after buying
snacks at the concession stand at the Regal Butler
Plaza Cinemas 14 late Thursday night for the show-
ing of "The Twilight Saga: New Moon."


"The fan base has exploded," Medved said.
Two hours before the 12:01 a.m. showing Friday, Re-
gal Gainesville Cinema 14 sold out 15 showings of the
latest cinema installment of the "Twilight" saga.
Medved attributed the increase in popularity to mov-
iegoers who found love at first bite last November with
the cinema debut of Edward Cullen, a golden-eyed, Vol-
vo-driving, vegetarian vampire.
But in round two, Bella, the love-struck mortal, may
find herself a new beau as she lands herself in a monster
love triangle between Robert Pattinson, her brooding
vampire boyfriend, and Taylor Lautner, the suddenly
sultry werewolf next door.
"Instead of one guy Bella's crazy about, there's two
hunky guys that are crazy about her," Medved said. "I
guess you could say there's more eye candy for the wom-
en this time."
And for Megan Barthle, who attended one of the 15
sold-out showings early Friday morning, there was too
much eye candy to choose from.
"You can't choose," the UF psychology senior said. "I
want them both."
Barthle donned a handmade T-shirt professing her
uncertainty with the word somem" splattered across her
chest in paint.
And vampires weren't the only ones with blood on
the brain Friday morning.
Clay Gibbons, community development coordinator
with LifeSouth Community Blood Centers, estimated
the "New Moon"-themed blood drive attracted about
60 blood donations in the theater's parking lot with its
"Team Edward" and "Team Jacob" Blood Mobiles.
Andrea Andrews, a 22-year-old UF student and "Team
Edward" member, wore a black T-shirt with Pattinson's
pale face emblazoned on the front. She said she felt more
like a 13-year-old girl as she stood in a line 17 people long

Editorial

Poison the Well

Lobbyists do more harm than

good by opposing regulations
Last week, a federal judge in Tallahassee approved a
settlement in an environmental suit that requires the
EPA to set nutrient limits for lakes, streams and creeks
in Florida.
For the first time, there would be strict limits on the out-
put of these chemicals, common byproducts of lawn fertiliza-
tion, sewage treatment, farming and cattle production.
We were surprised to find that Florida, unlike most other
states, does not already have limits on these chemicals. Rath-
er, the state has adopted "narrative" standards, allowing for
flexibility or total neglect when the situation calls for
it. Opponents of the new regulations, a coalition of lobbying
groups representing business and farming interests, argue
that the weak economy means now is not the time to increase
costs for business and government.
But for more than a decade, as Florida's economy and
housing market boomed, these same lobbying groups argued
against regulations, claiming they would hamper growth.
It is precisely this growth, bringing with it the endless
suburbs now synonymous with Florida, that has created an
environmental mess in Lake Okeechobee, major rivers and
the beaches of Southwest Florida. Lawn fertilizer runoff
causes algae blooms that kill fish, leave waters too unhealthy
to swim in and cause respiratory problems for residents and
tourists.
We believe that the real threat to Florida's economic fu-
ture (not to mention the well-being of its residents) is not
new regulations, but these lobbying groups themselves, who
have been all-too effective up to this point.
Because a wheezing stroll down an algae covered beach
won't appeal to most tourists.


Party Poopers


On Saturday night,
the Senate voted to
move health care
legislation to the floor for de-
bate in a close party-line vote
of 60 to 39.
But two key centrist sena-
tors who voted to move the
bill to debate, Ben Nelson,
D Neb., and Joseph Lieber-
man, who-knows-what-party
- Conn., have vowed to vote
against it if the "public op-
tion" remains, according to
The New York Times.
Lieberman, who admits
"we have a health care system
that's in trouble" (understate-
ment of the week), follows
by saying that "we have an
economic crisis," which he
does not want to aggravate
by passing a public option.
He argues this plan could cost
billions.
But the Congressional
Budget Office, the non-par-
tisan research agency within
Congress, estimated that the


bill would save $130 billion
in the first 10 years, and $650
billion in the next 10 years -
public option and all.
While Lieberman has a his-
tory of divisive splits from the
Democratic majority, Nelson
and other reluctant Democrats
are alienating themselves by
vocally criticizing the Demo-
cratic majority.
We say let them.
If senators like Nelson
want to latch on to arguments
straight out of Republican
talking-point memos, like the
notion that a public option
would mean bureaucrats will
invade doctor-patient rela-
tionships (citing recent mam-
mogram guidelines), maybe
the Democratic majority isn't
the best place for them.
The Democrats need to
consolidate support for up-
coming legislation, but some
dissenters might need to be
abandoned in health care
efforts and in their next re-
election campaigns.

US keeps moral high ground with trials


ast week, the Alligator published contradictory
views on whether trying Khalid Sheikh Muham-
mad in New York is the right move. Unfortunately,
both pieces missed some of the most pertinent questions.
Before addressing these, it must be said that I feel trying
Muhammad in New York is the right decision. Don't get
me wrong, he in no way deserves the protections we are
providing him.
He deserves little more than to be released in the middle
of Times Square, after making sure everyone knows when
and where. But trying him in open court is the right deci-
sion not only because it allows us to keep the moral high
ground but because it sets a precedent for how to treat the
remaining prisoners in American custody.
There is little doubt that Muhammad is guilty and de-
serves life in prison, at a minimum. But what about the re-
maining prisoners at Guantanamo Bay and other military
prisons like Bagram? It is true that some of these prisoners
are terrorists who are committed to destroying the United
States, but not all of them. There is a difference between
Taliban and al-Qaida. Even Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the
top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, admits that there
are no major al-Qaida factions remaining in Afghanistan.
Should the United States be allowed to detain and impris-
on enemy combatants indefinitely without ever bringing
charges against them?
No. But one major problem is that the CIA was allowed
to take the lead in interrogations. Being much more restric-
tive in its definition of torture, the CIA uses techniques that
are illegal in the U.S. This means it is very difficult to bring
prisoners to trial because any evidence given under duress
is inadmissible.
Some are also making the argument that we should not
bring detainees to the U.S. because of the difficulty in ob-
taining guilty verdicts. This is a ridiculous argument. If we
can't prove these people are guilty, especially when con-


Nick Miner sidering the death sentence, we have
Speaking Out no right to imprison them. There
have already been several docu-
mented cases of imprisoning foreign
nationals because of mistaken identity. These people were
arrested, flown halfway around the world and imprisoned
for months.
It's been shown that there were innocent people held at
Guantanamo, a place that President George W. Bush de-
scribed as holding only the "worst of the worst." One of
these men, Akhtiar Mohammad, was arrested on informa-
tion given to authorities by insurgents because he worked
for the government. Given this history of imprisoning the
innocent, we must ensure those in our custody are actually
guilty.
Not everyone who opposes the United States is evil. In
fact, very few are. We mock Muslims for calling us "The
Great Satan," but aren't we guilty of similar demonization?
We cannot treat all prisoners of the "War on Terror" as im-
minent threats to our security. We cannot imprison people
indefinitely without ever bringing charges. We cannot steal
people's lives. If we do, we are no better than the petty dic-
tators who we condemn for political prosecutions. If we
cannot prove someone has committed the crimes he or she
is accused of, we have no right to imprison him or her.
And for those who claim we can't bring these people to
trial because most of the evidence is inadmissible, here's
an idea: Don't use illegal interrogation methods. This is
the United States of America; we are better than that. Yes,
it might mean letting an enemy soldier return to the fray,
but abandoning our values and tarnishing our prestige
will lead to the deaths of far more Americans in the long
run. Plus if they do acquit Khalid Sheikh Muhammad then
maybe we can get our wish, and they will release him onto
the streets of New York.

Letters to the Editor
RTS is concerned with rider safety
The RTS family joins the Alligator in of-
fering the sincerest condolences to the family
of Erin Pelton. No words can express the loss
of such a bright young person on the cusp of
a promising future.
It is with this in mind that we, the board
of Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1579,
must strenuously object to both the tone and
contents of the Nov. 4 editorial "RTS must
act to make crossing streets safer."
The saddest thing about this tragedy,
which shattered two lives, is that it could
have been prevented. We feel it is irrespon-
sible and inflammatory for the Alligator Edi-
torial Board to place the onus on RTS.
RTS operators consider their passengers'
safety to be of the utmost importance. When
an operator asks you to exit via the rear door
or the talking bus reminds you to cross be-
hind the bus, where you will be most vis-
ible to traffic, this is done with your safety
in mind. Operator concern about passen-
ger safety has also led to RTS management
adopting a policy that discourages passen-
gers from running across the street to catch
the bus.
The Alligator has suggested that RTS is
not alert to locations where passengers make
high-risk crossings. On the contrary, this fall,
with the support of the Student Senate, RTS
launched a new Route 22 that uses Old Ar-
cher Road a routing suggested by an op-
erator to give residents of Oxford Manor
and Brandywine Apartments an alternative
to crossing Archer Road midblock.
Furthermore, we would like to address
the Alligator's recommendation that RTS
remove all midblock stops to discourage
high-risk crossings. On Archer Road from
23rd Drive to 34th Street there are bus stops
at crosswalks, apartment complexes and
places of business. The stop where Erin Pel-
ton most likely got off is located adjacent to
a driveway that leads to the UF entomology
and nematology departments. There are le-
gitimate reasons for a person to wish to use
these stops that do not involve a high-risk
crossing. If the Alligator Editorial Board
were to carry its arguments to their logical
conclusions, it might not find the results to
its liking.

Pride in UF doesn't come from buildings
This is in response to Zach Faza's letter to
the editor about his support for the renova-
tion of the Reitz Union. It is ignorant to ar-
gue that the pride Florida students have is


derived from the quality and beauty of their
campus. This is not a resort, but a university
that students attend for a reputable educa-
tion. What separates UF students from ev-
eryone else? Certainly not an addition onto
an already over-glorified building. Suggest-
ing that our "premier" university status is
dependent on such materialism is insulting.
In a true Randian sense, "A building
has integrity just like a man. And just as
seldom." Putting such emphasis on such
an arbitrary structure leads me to question
whether you're here for the right reasons. I
know I'll define my college experiences by
more than just where I pick up lunch or grab
money from the ATM. Let me bring you back
to the real world where the down economy
has smacked our university with immense
budget and faculty cuts. How about this time
we refrain from expanding our expensive
indulgences and remind ourselves of what
we're really here for.
Lauren Parater
UF political science sophomore



Embargo gives Castro regime
leverage over citizens
I used to feel the exact same way as Dayme
Sanchez does about the Cuban embargo, but
last time I went to Cuba I changed my mind.
As I flew into the Havana airport I saw a
billboard with a picture of President George
W. Bush on it that read, "America is full of
assholes."
When I got into a cab, the driver saw
my newspaper and told me there's no way
America would ever elect Barack Obama be-
cause it's a racist country.
When I got to my friend Ernesto's house,
he told me that he trusts the results of Cuban
elections more than American ones because
our politicians can pay for a win.
When I was traveling to Holguin, an
18-year-old in military uniform told me he
felt secure knowing Castro wouldn't send
him off to die a needless death like America
does to its troops.
When I was telling my friend Ariel good-
bye, an elderly woman asked me to bring her
some glasses next time since America won't
sell Cuba enough lens grinders because it
wants the people to suffer.
And when my plane took off from Hol-
guin I saw Bush again, this time alongside
Hitler as the ace of spades in the Cuban ver-
sion of the terrorist card deck.
So let's get one thing straight, the Cuban
embargo was about Castro seizing and sell-
ing American property in 1959, but now it's


the best tool the regime has to control peo-
ple's perception of America and keep them
complacent.

Undergrads have right to protest fee
I would like to give a response to Mat-
thew Powers and all those others who have
stated, "Undergraduates haven't the right
to complain about the fee." To all of those,
I return your "Shut up, undergrads," with a
"Shut up, graduates, and think about it."
Maybe Bright Futures worked differently
back in your day, but things have changed
recently. Now, they don't pay full tuition but
a set by-the-credit-hour rate. And I am pretty
sure that set rate will not be adjusted to ac-
commodate this Reitz Union fee. Rather, un-
dergrads will have to pay out of pocket, just
like you. No, we don't have massive amounts
of spending money, as you seem to think. I
have both Bright Futures and Prepaid; but if
not for the federal loan I took out this semes-
ter, I would not be able to pay my rent right
now, and my rent is not very expensive. We
are all broke, not just you.
And then there is the ignorance of placing
us all into one category. Many of us are like
you once were, undergrad juniors and se-
niors, enjoying only one year or less of Bright
Futures funding. Soon, we will join you in
these woes. And then there are the fifth-year
seniors, whom Bright Futures does not even
support. Not all undergrads are financially
equal. So we have just as much a right as
graduates to protest this ridiculous fee.

Anyone can be a drunken driver
Friday night I received text messages from
several friends and students at UF regarding
a DUI featured on the front page of the Alli-
gator. Kristen Gillis, an avid supporter of my
personal campaign against drunken driv-
ing and a friend of mine, made a mistake, a
big one. I was worried, personally hurt, and
pretty heartbroken.
Two things to take from this: Anyone can
be a drunken driver, and anyone can be his
or her victim; don't drink and drive, ever.
Second, if posting names in the Alligator is
intended to be a deterrent for others against
drunken driving then every single student
who drives drunk should have his or her
name listed on the front page. That's not an


attack against the Alligator. Rather, that's a
personal shove at you, my fellow students.
Hundreds of students at UF have made
and will make the same mistake Gillis made
on Thursday; trust me, I learned that the
hard way when my car was hit head-on by
another student driving drunk in 2006. One
thing UF does not have enough of, however,
is amazing people like Gillis. She makes mis-
takes, but I know she is much better at mak-
ing people smile.
Don't want to have your name listed on
front page? Then how about everyone sticks
to making people smile.

SG, administration have bad timing with
renovation and expansion plans
The issue about the Reitz Union expan-
sion raises fundamental and core problems
surrounding the attitudes of this university,
its administration, its Student Government
and the complete lack of distinction between
any and all of these categories.
We know that SG will operate under any
and all modes of self-interest. SG is, like the
administration, interested in ideas fit for
a brochure with attractive buildings and
boundless ideas of "excellence." But what
we need, as concerned graduate employees,
undergraduate employees, and students all,
is to use this moment of absolute disrespect
to put this attitude in check.
Unfortunately it is poor timing for UF
and SG to attempt to pull this one off: we
simply cannot afford to accept the decision
of a multi-million dollar expansion at a time
when faculty are leaving this university,
when graduate students are leaving this uni-
versity, and when a host of undergraduates
would rather see their money well spent in
holding onto the value of their already di-
minishing degrees.
The Board of Regents for the University of
California system recently approved a state-
wide fee increase of 32 percent, leaving stu-
dents upset, active and organizing against
this decision. This is our educational context.
Expanding a student union for more elbow
room for eating pizza and "activities" is in-
sulting. Renovations are the administration's
fiscal responsibility. We are not going to be
passed the buck.
Figure out something else... This is why
you are paid three-fourths of a million dol-
lars, Bernie.

Transgender victims honored in Day of Remembrance


143 transgenders were killed this year


By BEATRICE DEAHL
Alligator Contributing Writer
Wearing black arm bands em-
blazoned with the transgender
symbol and holding flickering
candles in the cool November air,
more than 40 people gathered Fri-
day on the Plaza of Americas to
remember.
Young and old stood together in
to remember people they've known
and hundreds they've never met.
They bowed their heads as they
remembered the lives of trans-
gender people and mourned the


deaths of hundreds of others killed
in hate crimes. The gathering was
part of the Transgender Day of Re-
membrance memorial at UF.
This year marks the 11th year
that UF has observed the Transgen-
der Day of Remembrance.
The number of transgender
deaths this year is also the highest
since the Day of Remembrance be-
gan.
The event also celebrated a vic-
tory for the transgender commu-
nity. The Local Law Enforcement
Hate Crimes Prevention Act was
passed in the House of Representa-


tives on Oct. 29, providing money
to law enforcement to prosecute
hate crimes wherein the victim was
selected because of race, gender,
sexual orientation or
Local disability.
News Speeches focused
not only on violent
crimes of the past but also looked
forward to the hope this act will
bring.
UF's memorial service included
several speeches, a reading of the
names of those who were killed
this year in transgender-related
hate crimes, a candlelight vigil and


a meditation circle.
Donna Lee, a transgender activ-
ist and ordained minister, led ev-
eryone in a time of meditation.
"Let us believe that justice and
love will prevail, hopefully sooner
than later," Lee said.
According to the Transgender
Day of Remembrance Web site,
there have been 143 transgender
homicides in 2009, and it is estimat-
ed that an anti-transgender murder
occurs every three days.
Alexia Vandeventer spoke of
the crimes against transgender
people and why these crimes have
been seen as almost acceptable in
today's society.


Vandeventer said that for crimes
to stop, transgender people need to
be seen as humans rather than ob-
jects of curiosity.
Both non-transgender and trans-
gender people attended.
Patricia Sullivan, a 65-year-old
transgender, read about the event
online and said it meant a lot.
"I lived all my life as someone
I wasn't, and as of last May, I was
finally able to be myself. It's been
wonderful," Sullivan said.
The vigil was sponsored by the
UF LGBT Affairs Office, the Of-
fice of Multicultural and Diversity
Affairs, Student Government and
Pride Student Union.


LOCAL

Online churches offer support to members from afar


By JU'LIA SAMUELS
Alligator Contributing Writer

It has been said that the Internet can take
a person anywhere. However, for someone
like Anesia Burns, an engineering major, the
Internet offers a direct link to heaven.
Burns is a member of an online church,
Christ Fellowship, which began offering its
sermons online in 2008.
Burns attended the church when she
lived at home in Palm Beach, and its online
sermons allow her to still be a member.
"When I left for college, the church had
like 100 members, but now there are like
5,000 members," Burns said.
The online service allows members who
are out of town to stay connected with their
church, and for Burns, it also offers a more
personal relationship.


"When I was there, I never had a person-
al conversation with the pastor, but now I
do. It's much easier to be open and tell them
your problems over a Web interface than
telling them your problems face to face,"
Burns said.
Viewers of the church's online sermons
log onto a group that allows them to chat
with the pastor and ask questions.
Online ministry has become so popular
that other churches are beginning to follow
the trend by posting their sermons online as
well.
"When new technology appears and, es-
pecially, becomes accessible to multitudes of
people, it seems irresponsible to not take ad-
vantage of such technology for the Gospel,"
said Michael Robertson, the technical direc-
tor of Gainesville's First Assembly of God.
Taking advantage of the changing times


has benefited students like English major
Anita John, who had little time to attend
church over the summer.
According to Robertson, the response to
online sermons has been met with very few
complaints.
"It's much easier to be open and
tell them your problems over a
Web interface than telling them
your problems face to face."
Anesia Burns
member of online church

"I hear stories and [am] told specifically
about people literally around the world that
have and are keeping up with our online
media. I have not heard any bad feedback,
unless [the post] gets up late or it's a Sun-


day where we don't put it up, which is very
rare," Robertson said.
While online sermons offer a sense of
convenience and intimacy, online church
media have yet to offer a feature that allows
the online members to connect with all the
members in the church, an advantage that
can still be found exclusively within the
walls of a church.
"We want everyone to come to a service.
It is a chance to rub shoulders with the Body
of Christ and to be encouraged and spurned
to live for Jesus," Robertson said. "This is
hard to do just through a screen."
It still boils down to fellowship for proud
online members like Burns.
"There is nothing like being able to go
to church and fellowship with the members
and have someone hold your hand when
they pray with you," she said.

UF RESEARCH

Study: Bullies act

on assumptions
..... ..... By JIMMIE PAUL
Alligator Writer
Bully see, bully do.
SA UF study shows that the more bullies think their peers are
harassing others, the more likely they are to tease others.
The experiment, which surveyed nearly 10,700 anonymous
middle school students from 2006 to 2008, was designed to moni-
tor bullying behaviors. About 20 middle schools from New Jersey
and New York participated in the study.
The research found that 66 percent of students said they've
been the victim of bullying more than once in the last month.
Twenty-five percent of those surveyed avoided recess, class
and lunch to keep clear of trouble. Eight percent of the teenagers
also reported that they skipped school for the same reason.
Jason Grindstaff, who works at UF's counseling center and
deals with student depression and anxiety, said menacing stu-
dents were often ridiculed and ostracized, so they tend to join
"jock" groups to appear popular and exert power, he said.
David W. Craig, one of the researchers, said easily influenced
students usually become quarrelsome and troubled, which is why
they tend to pick on others. He said people think bullying happens
much more than it actually does.
"We've been looking at the frequency between behavior and
the perceived behavior for two years," he said. "The higher the
grade level, the less influenced students are to becoming bullies."
S. .. .... The study also found that the classroom, lunchroom and hall-
.,. ways at schools were the places where victimization was most
prevalent. Craig also said bullying is down about 15 percent since
the study at the schools where students were surveyed.
Researchers from Hobart and William Smith colleges and Har-
vard University also participated in the study.

Florida eliminated from SEC race

* THE GATORS BREAK AN 18-YEAR
STREAK OF CONFERENCE TITLES.

By ANTHONY CHIANG
Alligator Writer
achiang@alligator org

The Gators will not win the Southeastern
Conference for the first time in 19 years, but
on Sunday, Florida prevented Kentucky from
claiming a share of the title.
After being eliminated from the conference
race Friday with a loss against Tennessee (22-7,
15-4 SEC) in four sets 3-1 (22-25, 25-23, 25-15,
25-22), No. 13 Florida (21-5, 15-4 SEC) didn't
have much time to regroup.
On Sunday, UF traveled to face Kentucky
(27-3, 17-2 SEC), which could clinch at least a
share of the SEC with a victory over the Gators. '
But UF implemented some new wrinkles and
delayed the celebration with an impressive
3-1 victory (31-29, 25-23, 24-26, 25-21) over the
Wildcats.
"This group is a special group and I know
that some of our alumni are disappointed that
our streak ended, but there are very few teams
that I have ever been as proud of as I am of this
team at this moment," coach Mary Wise said.
Despite playing in a two-setter offense for
most of the season, the Gators switched to us-
ing only one setter for most of the match against
Kentucky and benched struggling senior mid- r
dle blocker Kristina Johnson for junior Lauren
Bledsoe. / d i. i'
The results of the changes were encouraging ,
to say the least. .' I ..I
Sophomore setter Kelly Murphy thrived in irt 1 i -
the new offense as she finished with 43 assists '*
and helped four players reach double-digit :i 'f
kills. t' I
"The first person I told we were going to do .Mi i.4 11 . -..
this was Kelly, and she looked me right in the I- -
eye and it was like a sense of excitement she Harrison Diamond/Alligator Staff
was all over it," Wise said. UF sophomore Kelly Murphy took over as the Gators' lone setter for

FlU game gives

glimpse of future

im Tebow only has three games left as a
Gator, raising plenty of questions about what
the offense will look like when he's gone.
Saturday gave Gators fans a glimpse into the
post-Tebow era, and it did not look so bad.
When Tebow did not return to field for the
Gators' second drive in the third quarter, most of
the starters joined him on the sidelines, but a few
key starters were left on.
Running backs Jeff Demps and Chris Rainey
along with wide receiver Deonte Thompson all
went back out for one drive with Tebow's succes-
sor, John Brantley, before
Being taken out.
They are the only three
starting skill players that are
definitely returning. Wide-
outs Riley Cooper, David
Nelson and Brandon James
Bobby Callovi will all be out of eligibility
after the year, and tight end
Bobby's World Aaron Hernandez will draw
bcaov@algator org plenty of attention from the
NFL and could decide to
leave early.
But Demps, Rainey and Thompson will be back
next season as Brantley's biggest weapons.
Although it was against FIU and it was just
nine plays, the drive they all played together still
showed what next year is likely to resemble.
The Gators still ran their read-option play with
their speedy backs. The main difference was Brant-
ley seemed more willing to hand the ball off in-
stead of tucking it and running with it on his own
like Tebow does.
That is no surprise considering Brantley is no-
where near the runner Tebow is.
But Brantley proved he can run when needed.
Although the play was called back because of a
holding penalty, the redshirt sophomore showed

Gators snap out of shooting slump to rout

Walker went 76 mins without field goal missing and missing key during the
"That was just a slump, but hopefully I'm Boynton said


By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alligatororg


When Erving Walker's 3-pointer found the
bottom of the net a little more than three min-
utes into the second half Friday night, he said
two words immediately came to his mind.
"Thank God."
Walker hit his first three of the season after
going 0 for his last 17 shots from the field, and
the rest of the Gators' outside shooters finally
found their touch as well, leading Florida (3-


0) to an 80-58 victory against Troy (2-1) in the
O'Connell Center.
After shooting 3 for 29 through its first
two games, UF hit 12 shots from beyond the
arc Friday, including seven that came in a
dominant second-half performance in which
the Gators outscored the Trojans 49-26.
Walker, a 41.9 percent 3-point shooter last
year, was 0 for 6 from long range and just 4
for 19 from the field entering Friday's game.
"I'm not going to lie, I was very frustrated,
but you can't dwell on that," Walker said.
"That's so frustrating when you just keep


out of it."
Kenny Boynton, Walker's partner in the
starting backcourt, led UF
in scoring for the second
straight game. The fresh-
man guard poured in 23
Men's points on 8-of-16 shooting,
Basketball including three 3-pointers.
To ease some of the ten-
sion on Walker, who has
run the point and led the team in minutes
played through the first three games, Boyn-
ton occasionally took the ball at the top of the


Trojans
second half to set up Walker.
Sthe backcourt role reversal is


something the two will look to do more often
as the season progresses to make it easier for
Walker to find his shot from the wing.
"Both those guys look for each other when
they're playing," UF coach Billy Donovan
said. "They need to continue to have that
kind of relationship because when both those
guys are playing like that, it really creates a
lot for our team."
Walker and Boynton weren't the only
shooters who found their rhythm Friday
night, though. Forwards Chandler Parsons
SEE HOOPS, PAGE 16


U Cal fans rushing the end zone after a 34-28 win at Stanford was absolutely ab-
surd. You're a ranked team, on the road and playing against the Cardinal. You've
gotta be kidding me. ... Can't help but revisit a Charlie Weis quote from his first
press conference at ND: "If you think they hired me to go .500, you've got the
wrong guy." The Irish are 6-5 and likely will be 6-6 after going to Stanford.


U ESPN's College GameDay will be
in Gainesville on Saturday as part of
the Florida State-Florida festivities.
The show will broadcast from the
grass outside the north end zone.

Meyer, seniors undefeated against FSU


FOOTBALL, from page 1


With the win against the Golden Panthers, the
Gators (11-0, 8-0 Southeastern Conference) extend-
ed their nation-best win streak to 21 games the
fourth-longest in SEC history.
Perhaps more impressively, the win made
Tebow and the rest of the seniors the winningest
class in conference history, running their record to
46-6.
The senior class has accomplished a lot together,
but there's still plenty of unfinished business for
this group.
Brantley and the next generation's time is edging
closer by the week, but it will be on Tebow, senior
linebacker Brandon Spikes and the rest of the cur-
rent starters to close out the regular season with a
victory on Senior Day against Florida State on Sat-
urday.
A win against the Seminoles gives the Gators
their first undefeated regular season since 1995
and the third in school history UF went 5-0-1 in
1911.
Coach Urban Meyer and his senior quarterback
have never lost to FSU in their time as Gators, and
Tebow has dominated the Seminoles in his two sea-
sons as a starter.
In the last two years, Tebow passed for 447 yards
and six touchdowns and added 169 yards and three
scores on the ground.
The Gators have won by a combined margin of
90-27.
The lefty grew up cheering for Florida in Jack-
sonville, and no one knows the significance of the


rivalry better than him.
"Since I can remember watching football, I can
remember watching that game," Tebow said.
After the game against FIU, he told an anecdote
about watching the game in 1996 a 24-21 loss -
as a 9-year-old.

"I've been waiting for three years now, but
you know what, I've just learned so much
and I've taken it all in these three years.
To sit behind one of the greatest players in
college football is a blessing to me."
John Brantley
UF sophomore quarterback


His father had him go out into the yard and rake
the leaves when the contest ended, and Tebow said
he cried the entire time because he knew the Gators
had lost and wouldn't be able to win a national
championship.
The young Tebow was wrong, of course.
Quarterback Danny Wuerffel and Florida went
on to defeat FSU 52-20 in a rematch at the Sugar
Bowl, giving the Gators their first-ever national
championship.
The members of the senior class will take their
third national championship in four years any way
they can get it, but stomaching a loss in their final
game in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium would be less than
a storybook ending.
In that scenario, Tebow would be deprived of his
final victory lap, with or without Brantley.


UF defensive end Jermaine Cunningham is part of the winningest
senior class in SEC history, going 46-6 over a four-year span.


FlU 3, Florida 2 4

Urban Meyer said after the game that he let Rainey
) know he wouldn't mind if his shifty back turned in similar
performances against top-tier SEC foes. We can't help
but agree. No. 3 had an elusiveness Saturday that was
impressive even against an overmatched FIU defense. 2

.Brantley gave Florida fans a glimpse of the future after takir
over for Tebow midway through the third quarter. He threw
a touchdown pass on all three of the drives he led, and each
one went to a different receiver of the future Omarius Hine
Frankie Hammond Jr. and Justin Williams. He may not run
over people like Tebow, but Brantley's got a much sweeter
arm.

SLeave it to the annual nonconference blowout before FSU
to return Tebow to form. His 55-yd touchdown scamper
was the longest run of his career, and UF's offensive line
gave him plenty of time to throw the ball. It was the first
time he hasn't been sacked since the LSU game, a span
of six games. The Gators will need Tebow at his best if

UF WOMEN'S CROSS COUNTRY

Lowe leads Gators in attempt for first NCAA title


By JESSICA BETTER
Alligator Writer


The Florida women's cross coun-
try team has a chance to do some-
thing today its never done before in
its 30-year history win a national
title.
The No. 5 Gators will compete in
the NCAA Championships with 30
other teams today at 12:58 p.m. in
Terre Haute, Ind. The 6K race will
be televised live on Versus as well as
being streamed on NCAA.com
UF has finished no lower than


fourth in any of its six races in 2009
and is coming off back-to-back
wins in the Southeastern Confer-
ence Championship and the NCAA
South Regional.
Florida, the SEC's lone qualifier,
finished second among 37 teams in
the Pre-NCAA Invitational on Oct.
17, which is run on the same course
as today's race.
"This is a program that has never
finished in the top 10 before and that
was one of our goals at the begin-
ning of the season," said coach Todd
Morgan, recently named South Re-
gion Women's Coach of the Year.


"Things have gone so well and we
want to set our sights a little higher.
We want to see how high we can fin-
ish and that's kind
of the new goal."
This is the
fourth consecu-
tive year the
Gators have
qualified for the
NCAA Champi-
Lowe onships, although
they have never
finished in the top 10. Their previous
best finish was 11th in 2007.
UF is coming on strong of late,


however.
Three of Florida's five scoring
runners at the NCAA South Re-
gional placed in the top five, led by
the race's individual winner, red-
shirt sophomore Rebecca Lowe. The
South Regional Female Athlete of
the Year has paced the Gators' last
two victories, winning both individ-
ual titles after not even leading the
team in her first two competitions of
the year (Notre Dame Invitational
and Pre-NCAA Invitational).
The Gators' biggest competition

Florida hopes to get some re-

Cold shooting lets Pitt pull away early


* THE PANTHERS USED A 12-0 RUN.

The shots didn't fall for the Florida wom-
en's basketball team against FSU and it lost
by four.
Poor shooting doomed UF(1-2) once again
Friday as it fell 81-58 at Pittsburgh (2-0) in
the Petersen Events Center.
"Clearly, there were a lot of problems. ..
Disappointing from the beginning, disap-
pointed with the way we started the game,
shots didn't fall. We didn't prepare well
enough and let down on all fronts," coach
Amanda Butler said. "Pitt kicked our butt."
The teams were tied at 14 with 10:34 left in
the first half, but the Panthers ran away with
the game after that, going on a 12-0 run.
Pittsburgh's Taneisha Harrison was a
one-woman wrecking crew. The junior guard
carved up the Gators for 20 points in the first
half and scored a career-high 25 points to go
along with five rebounds and four assists.
While UF shot and missed, the Panthers


were making buckets thanks to open looks
with a larger, and more experienced, lineup.
Pittsburgh outscored UF 38-14 in the paint,
and no combination of speed and size Flori-
da threw out seemed to work.
Ndidi Madu was the only semi-bright
spot on an otherwise dull post night. The
6-foot-i forward only tallied 7 points, but she
led the team with five rebounds.
The game got out of hand by the end of the
first half, as the Panthers
pounced on the Gators' in-
effective shooting and post
game to establish a 43-20
Women's halftime lead.
Pittsburgh outscored
Basketball the Gators in every way
possible, shooting 50 per-
cent from the field, including 7 of 13 from be-
yond the arc, and dominating the paint with
20 points in the first half.
"They hit shots," said starting guard Steffi
Sorensen, who finished scoreless on 0-for-7
shooting. "They came out firing. The score
doesn't even indicate how opposite the game
felt as far as how they dominated us."
Florida's weaker post game forced the
ball to the perimeter and missed shot after


missed shot built frustration and the Pan-
thers' lead.
"The missed shots were certainly a prob-
lem," Butler said. "But when you allow a
team to score 43 points on you in 20 minutes
of play, I think that's a bigger problem."
The Gators didn't make their first three-
pointer until the 18:49 mark in the second
half when Susan Yenser finally dialed one in
from downtown after the team was unsuc-
cessful in its first 12 attempts.
"I don't think we were mentally ready
to come in here and battle and compete on
someone else's home floor," Butler said.
Offensive ineptitude wasn't helped by
lapses in defense. The Gators forced four
turnovers in the first half but couldn't score
off any of them. By comparison, Pittsburgh
scored 11 points off Florida's turnovers in
the decisive first half.
"The only thing you can really control is
your defensive effort and your rebounding
effort," Butler said. "We weren't good in any
aspect. You have to give Pitt a lot of credit,
they were ready to whip our butts and that's
exactly what they did. They embarrassed us
tonight."

and Dan Wemer combined for
27 points and six threes.
Werner, who led the team
with four 3-pointers, said dur-
ing warmups the coaches in-
sisted on getting the ball back
to players who were missing
their shots before the game
- and odd twist on the usual
shootaround practice of getting
the ball back to players hitting
their shots.
"They told us just to keep
shooting, keep our confidence
up," Boynton said. "(Parsons)
came in hot, so we knew some-
body else had to get hot. Erv got
it going, then I got it going."

TYUS SPRAINS ANKLE: Junior


BOBBY, from page 14


power forward Alex Tyus
went down with a sprained
right ankle with a little more
than two minutes remaining
in the second half against the
Trojans.
Tyus was tangled up with
Troy's Bernard Toombs and hit
the floor in obvious pain, winc-
ing as he walked off the court
on his own. Donovan said Tyus'
ankle was tender and sore after
the game, but he won't know
anything more until he meets
with team doctors.
"I am concerned about Tyus'
ankle," Donovan said. "I don't
know where that's at."
Parsons was also a little
banged up after the game, nurs-
ing a hip flexor he said was "a
little tender."

for a 13-yard scramble.
Even though Brantley can run, it will be on
Demps, Rainey and Emmanuel Moody, who
was not involved in the 2010 preview because
of an ankle sprain, to drive Florida's rushing
attack without much help from the quarter-
back.

UF power forward Alex Tyus is picked up after spraining his ankle
during a 80-58 win over Troy in the O'Connell Center on Friday.


Brantley did show a skill that Tebow has
struggled with for most of this season the
ability to spread the ball out.
Tebow has often looked locked in on Coo-
per and Hemandez, but on Brantley's first
drive with some of the starters, he threw six
passes, spreading them out to five different
targets. Of the four he completed, he hit three
different receivers.
Other than Thompson, the receiving unit
next year is unknown. Urban Meyer has said


all season he was looking for Omarius Hines,
Frankie Hammond Jr. and T.J. Lawrence, who
has been out recently with a knee injury, to
step up and provide depth at the position, but
none of them have been able to give the Gators
much meaningful time in games.
On Saturday, Hines and Hammond Jr.
showed they have the ability to make plays in
the passing game, especially Hines.
Four of Brantley's nine completions were
caught by Hines including a 20-yard score

SEC in digs

The other change to Bled-
soe not only led to increased
offensive production from the
middle blocker position, it also
led to improved defense.
Before the switch was
made, Johnson was averag-
ing four kills a match, but
Bledsoe more than tripled that
amount with 13 kills against
Kentucky. She even recorded
three blocks as her and middle
blocker Cassandra Anderson
made it tough for the Ken-
tucky hitters.
The Gators got off to a
quick start early in the match
thanks to the play of junior
opposite hitter Callie Rivers,
who finished with 11 kills and
eight digs. She tallied up five
of those kills in the first set,
but the emotion displayed
after each point helped jump
start the team was equally as
important.
"It all starts with Callie
Rivers," Wise said. "She is the
most competitive player that
I have ever had the pleasure
of coaching, and the team just
fed off her emotion."
The match marked another
milestone for senior libero
Elyse Cusack as she finished
with a season-high 33 digs to
give her sole-possession of
second-place on the all-time
SEC digs list.


where he caught a short pass and made a de-
fender miss before dragging another into the
end zone.
Hammond's lone reception from Brantley
was a 31-yard touchdown on a throw that hit
him right in stride, displaying the connection
the pair has been building in practice.
It will certainly be weird seeing the Gators
play without Tebow, but Brantley and com-
pany showed Saturday that change doesn't
always have to be a bad thing.
