SG party names



president pick


* CAVATARO IS A FORMER
ORANGE AND BLUE SEN.

By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN
Alligator Writer

Its name still remains a mys-
tery, but the newly formed Student
Government party has found its
candidate for Student Body Presi-
dent in former Orange and Blue
Party Sen. Ben Cavataro.
The new party is a combination
of the Progress Party and the Or-
ange and Blue Party.
It will announce its name and
the other party leaders on its ticket
at the end of the week, Cavataro
said.
"We are looking forward to
having a very exciting ticket with


leaders from all across campus,"
he said.
Cavataro, who served on the
Student Senate for two years, said
his campaign focuses on making
changes in SG and protecting stu-
dent interests.
"We need a system that's go-
ing to work for all of us, not just a
handful," he said.
He said the
Student party hopes to
Government protect funds
delegated for
Bright Futures.
It also hopes to use the multi-
million-dollar SG budget responsi-
bly and make SG and its expendi-
tures more transparent, Cavataro
said.

Bouncers aren't the only ones

UF's RecSports employees are find-
ing non-UF students are trying to
cash in on the perks enjoyed by
Gator 1 Card holders.
UF students pay the transporta-
tion access fee of $6.79 per credit
hour in their tuition, but for non-
students, a free bus ride is as sim-
ple as finding or stealing a Gator 1
Card.
Non-students caught using
fake or borrowed cards cannot be
charged with using fake identifica-
tion because the Gator 1 Card is not
state-issued, said University Police
Capt. Jeff Holcomb.
However, offenders can face
penalties ranging from being kicked
off the bus, being stripped of the


card or being issued a trespassing
warning.
"The warning means: 'Don't
come back to UF's campus,'" Hol-
comb said. "If you come back again,
you can be arrested."
"The warning means:
'Don't come back to UF's
campus. If you come back

Chip Skinner, spokesman for
Regional Transit System, said bor-
rowed and fake Gator 1 Cards have
been a problem in the past.
"We've seen it going on for quite
a while ever since we had passes

* THEY RAISED MONEY FOR
RELAY FOR LIFE.

By TYLER JETT
Alligator Writer
Students in pajama pants and slip-
pers gathered on the second floor of The
Swamp Restaurant Wednesday night,
but no one was sleeping.
The UF Relay for Life committee host-
ed the pajama party-themed meeting to
parallel this year's theme, "A Relay Big
Party."
"We thought we would do a pajama
party to get everyone in the spirit of the
theme and get everyone motivated," said
Andrew Ruiz, the event's chairman.
During the meeting, team captains
were instructed how to get donations
from companies and motivate members
of their team to raise money. Committee
members also asked team captains to get
cancer survivors involved in the event.
American Cancer Society commu-
nity representative Brett Hipsley chal-
lenged UF students to raise more money
through Relay for Life than Florida State
University.
Hipsley, a UF alumnus, referenced a
UF commercial that featured Gators en-
couraging each other to succeed in their
field. In the ad, one person tells another
to "go cure cancer."
"That's why they say that in the com-
mercial because the University of
Florida is going to cure cancer," Hipsley
said.
Ruiz hopes each team can raise be-
tween $1,000 and $1,500.

UF's Ice Hockey club wii

More than 5,000 fans attended


By JOEY FLECHAS
Alligator Writer


UF's Ice Hockey club skated away with
the Thrasher Cup after winning the Savan-
nah Tire Hockey Classic in Savannah, Ga., last
weekend.
Three Gators, including goalie Casey Fer-
ris, team captain Jonathan Pavlinec and defen-
seman Matt Stankowicz, made the all-tourna-
ment team.
After beating both Univeristy of Georgia


and Florida State Univeristy, the team's record
is now 8-4.
Ferris, a senior, said he thinks the team is
winning because the players have bonded
more than in previous years.
Ferris said the team has never defeated
Georgia and FSU in the same tournament un-
til this year.
Ferris, a three-year veteran, was happy to
see the team grab the attention of other teams
and more than 5,000 fans who attended.
"We're finally getting recognized in our di-
vision," he said.


is Georgia t
The club team, founded in 1996, competes
in Division III in the American Collegiate
Hockey Association.
But second-year head coach Joel Pagett said
the players approach the sport as if they were
playing in Division I,
Gators which is their goal.
Special teams "We're definitely
committed to getting
the team to the next level," he said.
As a member of the Southeastern Colle-
giate Hockey Conference, the club plays fa-
miliar SEC opponents, including Univeristy of
Alabama and Univeristy of Tennessee, in the
regular season October through February.


tournamentt
The players have nowhere to practice in
Gainesville, so they make a weekly trip to
Jacksonville Wednesday nights to get on the
ice.
Despite the recent winning streak, assistant
coach Dan Boutin said the team's poor history
has kept it from cracking the rankings, which
are determined through a coaches' poll.
He insists, however, that it only inspires
the team more.
"I'm smiling inside because it's a motiva-
tional tool," he said.
The Gators' next game is against Embry-
Riddle Aeronautical University at Jacksonville
Ice & Sportsplex at 7:30 p.m. Friday.


NATIONAL

Loss crushes Dems


By MATT HARRINGER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Republican Scott Brown's
win in the Massachusetts Sen-
ate race Tuesday night sig-
naled a political tug-of-war
between Alachua County of-
ficials.
A victory for the Republi-
cans, his election destroyed
the Democrats' super major-
ity and struck a blow to health
care legislation.
Stafford Jones, chairman of
the Alachua County Republi-
can Party, said he was "tick-
led pink" when Brown won
Tuesday night.
Because Brown's victory
makes 41 Republicans in the
Senate, Jones said he thinks
they will be able to halt health
care legislation.


But Jon Reiskind, chairman
of the Alachua County Demo-
crats, said he's disappointed
with the loss.
Reiskind said he doesn't
know what the Democratic
leadership in Congress will
do, but he'd like to see health
care reform
succeed in
the future.
"We can-
not put it
off another
decade," Re-
iskind said,
Brown We'll see a
problem far
worse than today."
Reiskind said the country
is facing a health care crisis.
"It's not a Democrat or a
Republican problem," he said.
"It's a national problem."


Students discuss survey results


* MORE THAN 28,000 STUDENTS TOOK
THE SURVEY ABOUT UF EXPERIENCE.

By ALLY FOX
Alligator Contributing Writer

About 75 students gathered to discuss the results
of the Student Experience in the Research University
(SERU) survey in the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom
Wednesday night.
The survey was conducted in the spring of 2009
and asked all UF undergraduate students about their
campus experiences at the university.
The survey was distributed at six universities
across the country, and UF ranked first in social expe-
rience and value of education, according to the Office
of Institutional Planning and Research Web site.
Participants talked about results and about their
classroom and academic experiences.


About two-thirds of UF undergraduates said they
were satisfied or very satisfied with instruction.
UF junior Ismail ibn Ali said he noticed a decrease
in his class sizes from his freshman to junior year.
He said the quality of education gets better as class
sizes get smaller and believes the smaller class sizes
contribute to student satisfaction with the quality of
their professors.
Students also talked about the impact of socioeco-
nomic status on student academic experiences.
The survey showed 82 percent of those who con-
sidered themselves of higher socio-economic status
feel respected, compared to 37 percent of the lower
socio-economic status.
The groups discussed how the way students dress
could affect people's perceptions of them.
Anthony Crenshaw, assistant director of multicul-
tural and diversity affairs, said the event went well.
"It's good for people to be able to hear experiences
from different students," Crenshaw said.

Cavataro said he is confident
the outcome of this election will
be a good one for his party and UF
students.
"We haven't been in power
forever, and we may not have the
resources of the incumbent party,
but we have the students on our
side, we're fighting for their issues
and that's what really matters,"
Cavataro said.


He said he decided to run after
encouragement from friends and

The Unite Party is also in the
process of choosing its party lead-
ers.
Unite Party spokesman Ben
Meyers said the Unite Party can-
didates and platform will be an-
nounced soon.
He said the Unite Party was
founded one year ago with the
goal of uniting the campus and
representing the entire Student
Body.
"We feel that it's time to show
that we've done that," Meyers
said.


44 suspended from intramurals last fall


GATOR 1, from page 1


He estimated 75 percent of bus riders are UF stu-
dents, faculty and staff, and nine of 23 bus routes to UF
run strictly on campus.
Holcomb said counterfeit cards were not used as
much for getting football tickets or for campus activi-
ties such as GatorNights because the events require the
cards to be scanned. People scanning IDs often overlook
the pictures on cards, so borrowed cards are easier to
pass off in these situations.
Jon Broska, assistant director for UF intramural
sports, said non-students have also been using fake or
borrowed Gator 1 Cards to play intramurals and gain
access to UF fitness centers.
Last semester, there were 22 instances of people us-
ing fake or borrowed cards to play, Broska said, usually
for outdoor sports.
Broska said when a person is caught trying to use a
borrowed card, that person and the card's original own-


er are suspended indefinitely from intramural sports.
Forty-four players were suspended last semester.
After the owner of the card is notified, the card is
revoked from its holder and placed in a lockbox in his
office, Broska said.
"If they want to play again, they're going to have to
set up a meeting with me, so we can work something
out," he said.
David Looney, assistant director of the
special business services division at UF, said it is
Report more difficult for non-students to attain his
or her own Gator I Card than borrowing a
card, and it comes with higher stakes.
When applying for a Gator 1 Card, students must
be able to produce a valid UF ID number along with
another form of government-issued identification, Loo-
ney said.
He added if the applicant could not show valid iden-
tification after applying for a card, the case would be
treated as identity theft, and a Gator 1 Central employee
would then contact the University Police Department.

vice has been unfairly tarnished by the individual actions
of a few disgraced officers," she said.
Looking toward the future, the mayor addressed proj-
ects concerning the city's proposed $18.2 million traffic
management system, which is slated to be finished by
September, as well as Gainesville's homelessness preven-
tion campaign.
Although she recognized many of the city's successes,
Hanrahan said there's much more to be done within the
city, especially improving graduation rates, attracting
more businesses to the area and reducing poverty.
"This is not the time to go back to old, outdated para-
digms, but to capture the innovation and market advan-
tage that define who we are," she said. "I encourage all
of us to lift ourselves on the buoyancy of hope and begin
now to fulfill our aspirations. That's the way to achieve
the Gainesville that we want."

Republican Scott Brown, and the Editorial Board
can't help but feel that Massachusetts voters delivered a
sucker punch to the U.S. as a whole.
Granted, Coakley ran a lackluster campaign, and Demo-
crats should have pulled for her harder if for no other reason
than to block Brown.
But now isn't the time to look backward and point fin-
gers -at Coakley, at Obama, at anyone. It's time to look
forward and figure out how health reform can survive de-
spite the GOP's best efforts to pull the plug.
With reform inching albeit slowly closer to real-
ization, progressive Democrats need all the help they can
get to overcome vehement Republican opposition, and
with some Democrats making the process more difficult
by refusing to back their peers, 41 Republican seats will
make the struggle even more intense.
But as they fight the battle for health care reform, Dem-
ocrats need to stick to their ideals and refuse to admit de-
feat. If they try but lose, they will have earned our contin-
ued respect.
But if they let this slap in the face rupture their will to
rebuild a broken system and help millions of Americans,
they will alienate even the most devout liberals.
As Kennedy said, "If the Democrats run for cover, if
we become pale carbon copies of the opposition, we will
lose and we deserve to lose. The last thing this country
needs is two Republican Parties."


Stayin' Alive


T he New York Times
announced Wednes-
day afternoon that in
2011 it will offer online read-
ers only a limited number of
articles for free each month.
In this "metered system,"
once users reach their limit,
they will be charged or de-
nied access.
The Times optimistically
presents this as bringing in
another revenue stream on
top of advertising. While this
contradicts the long-held be-
lief that pay walls destroy
advertising revenue, it's pos-
sible that the Times has an
answer to this hidden in its
new plan.
However, details on what
access will cost or the exact
article cap are scarce, and
the balancing of these two
variables while increasing
revenue and keeping readers


happy and dedicated will be
a feat heretofore unseen in
the online age.
Some will cheer this deci-
sion as a sign of newspapers
standing up for their true
worth. Others will scoff and
quote lines of doom, preach-
ing that people have only
ever paid for the paper, not
the words printed on it.
Either way, in our opinion,
it's better than waiting for the
slow decay that the current
model has promoted.
By making a move, the
Times may hasten its own
demise or it may eventually
discover the model that will
save itself and the few pa-
pers in its league, who would
surely follow suite.
Ultimately, if the business
of large-scale journalism is to
stay alive, it's going to have
to stay on its feet.

Column

'Avatar' parallels F
Read as a straightforward attack on capitalism in a
blue-green hue, many conservatives have angrily
vented across all media platforms belittling "Ava-
tar" as yet another Hollywood-leftist-socialist-homosex-
ual-pantheistic-anthrophobic diatribe.
This conclusion is painfully myopic and does not take
into account any level of nuance, which is where director
James Cameron truly shows his esoteric genius.
Full disclosure I wholeheartedly believe "Titanic"
was an obvious parable for the Cuban Missile Crisis
(Leonardo DiCaprio is JFK, Kate Winslet is the Soviet
Union and, of course, the boat is the soul of Karl Marx.
Cuba is the iceberg, and Fidel Castro looks pretty much
exactly like Billy Zane anyway).
Seeing that American conservatives are the indig-
enous, blue humanoid population of the planet Pandora
isn't exactly groundbreaking. The Na'vi would rather die
than give up their weapons, and their fiercely libertarian
take on property rights was even mentioned in a Wash-
ington Post blog last week.
Cameron, though, evidently meant to set up the Na'vi
not just as American conservatives, but as specific con-
servative commentators. Seething with righteous rage yet
sensitive enough to cry, the female protagonist Neytiri
looks eerily like a caricature of Sarah Palin. Pretty, more
than a little bit earthy, handy with a bow and arrow and
oblivious to global political ramifications sounds like
a match to me.
Neytiri's regal-but-doomed family is clearly a nod to
the Bush administration in a time of great tumult and
disarray for the right, with Dick Cheney conspicuously
depicted as Neytiri's mom the all-knowing witch doc-
tor.
The Tree of Souls, where everyone goes to get plugged


Republican Party
S in and recharged before battle, rep-
resents the Fox News Channel. The
shows and hosts rejuvenate view-
ers with a buoyant feeling not un-
like the power of the mystical tree.
In fact, when Glenn Beck drops acid
Tommy Maple and starts thinking about FEMA,
letters@alligatororg his tail begins to glow with a soft
white light.
Obama and the Dems in Congress are the evil military
industrialists in my deduction, and it is hardly a stretch
even the name of the quasi-governmental corporation
they all work for, the Resources Development Adminis-
tration, sounds like something to which Obama would
appoint a czar.
Obama orders his Congressional troops to blow to
smithereens the limits on political power that keep the
government from interfering with the American econo-
my (Hometree), and then he wants to use nuclear weap-
ons to enact a series of wholesale changes to American
life. Unobtanium, the precious resource atop which the
Na'vi have developed their society, is the symbolic soul
of American wildcat independence like a magical pick-
le jar containing Andrew Jackson's heart and testicles.
Seen in this new light, "Avatar" is instantly trans-
formed into a redemptive Republican flick worthy of
praise from even the staunchest conservative. Fun DVD
extra to look out for: About two and a half hours into
the movie, one can clearly see scared gunship pilot Harry
Reid have his face smashed in by Na'vi warrior Glenn
Beck, riding a majestic and angry flying Toruk that looks
suspiciously like Rush Limbaugh.

Guest column

TV lessons lessen with time


No offense to my parents, but I
was raised by television.
They simply couldn't com-
pete with the hundreds of channels TV
offered me. Even as I got older, I real-
ized that everyone in my generation
could bond over one show or another.
That fact alone is not troubling.
However, the content of these pro-
grams is.
From staged reality shows to nev-
er-ending sports coverage to the latest
stalker-esque update on some talent-
less pop-culture star, every program
seems to just numb the mind.
You might be thinking, "Well, isn't
TV supposed to numb the mind?" The
lack of mental stimulation would not
be a problem if TV were not placed
in the center of our living rooms, our
bedrooms, our entire lives. We can
even stream TV on our phones. The
sheer amount of hours spent in front
of it might make it our most influential
teacher.
The Learning Channel (now com-
monly known as TLC to hide the fact
that it teaches you nothing) airs a re-
ality show about the now infamous
Octomom, while The History Channel
has quests for fictional monsters and
biased documentaries on conspiracy
theories.
Once you think of TV as our gen-
eration's greatest teacher, it suddenly
becomes clear how damaging a lesson
in numbness can be.
While these shows may be put on
TV with the best of intentions, the end
result always seems to be a dumbing
down of our culture.
And like someone much smarter
than me once observed maybe be-
cause he didn't have a TV to distract
him the road to hell is paved in
good intentions.
So what is the solution?
America needs more smart people
on TV. We need more intellectual dis-
course.
We need to show each other that
smart people can be entertaining too,
and that watching some celebrity train
wreck to make yourself feel better


Eric Tegethoff about your life
Speaking Out doesn't actually
make your life
any better.
I've noticed a trend in TV's educa-
tional value. Shows meant for children
appear to be getting smarter, but as
you get older, programs teach you less
and less.
For instance, "Dora the Explorer"
teaches children functional moral les-
sons (and even a little Spanish).
Once children get to "Jonas," star-
ring the Jonas Brothers, TV teaches
less, though there are still some moral
lessons. Plus, they get the added bonus
of learning how to hide their sexuality
with promise rings.
Finally, at our age, we have "Jersey
Shore," which teaches us how to hide
our sexuality with hair gel.
Imagine a country where, instead
of discussing the latest revelation on
Tiger Woods' sex life, we discussed
the topics that now seem so forbidden,
(but we nonetheless think of) like re-
ligion.
What if we discussed democracy as
was intended by our forefathers when
they set out a government "by the peo-
ple, for the people"?
I often question our dedication to
democracy when sports are easier to
discuss than politics.
If Gator fans and Bulldog fans can
talk football every now and then, why
can't liberals and conservatives find a
way to discuss politics?
I've wondered lately how the void
in human life that was set aside from
work and finding food was occupied
before TV.
Long ago, hunting took up most
of the human brain power. Once food
was easier to get, it was work that took
up most of human time, but there was
still some leftover.
What did people discuss in their
time off?
Did they have intellectual discus-
sions? Did constant media exposure
kill those discussions? And even if it
did, can't we use TV to bring it back?

Student's arrest brings to light America's flawed priorities


About two weeks ago, Haisong Ji-
ang, a graduate student from China
studying biosciences at Rutgers,
saw his girlfriend off at the Newark Liberty
International Airport.
The only problem was that the restrict-
ed-access area after security wasn't very
clearly marked. He went too far down the
terminal to prolong his goodbye. It was a
security breach. TSA freaked out, Terminal
C was closed for seven hours, more than
a hundred flights were delayed, and poor
Haisong Jiang was arrested for trespass-
ing. New Jersey Sen. Frank R. Lautenberg
called for his deportation, but now at least
the Chinese Consulate is helping handle
the situation.
I studied Chinese for two years, includ-
ing seven months abroad in 2008, so I know
firsthand what it can be like to live in a dif-
ferent country where you don't really un-


derstand the culture. UF has a program in
which people who are studying a foreign
language can partner with students study-
ing abroad here. Half the time is spent help-
ing the other person learn English, and the
other half is for you to practice speaking a
foreign language to a native.
You learn about school habits, dating
codes, parental interaction, etc. I remem-
ber this summer I watched "Titanic" with
my Chinese-language partner and had to
explain why Rose would say, "I'll be God
damned."
"Shouldn't it be 'Damn you?'" he
asked.
Language partners are great, but right
now I would hate to be Haisong Jiang's
language partner. It would be difficult to
explain to him why he was on national
news. But I've been playing it through in
my mind, and here's my imagined interac-


Will Penman tion.
Speaking Out "Haisong, Haisong,
Haisong," I would say
with a smile. "That
sucks. I should have explained before.
See, you know how last week we visited a
church? Well, that's not really how we live
any more. In America, our god is airport
security."
At first he wouldn't know if I was jok-
ing, but I would continue. "A god is the
thing you sacrifice everything else for. And
we do that with airport security. You ap-
proach the security temple, and out of rev-
erence, you must take off your shoes; You
are on holy TSA ground."
I act it out. "You offer everything you
have: keys, change, outer clothing, laptop,
toiletries. All of it goes on a belt where it is
examined by machines that divide soul and
spirit, joint and marrow. It is practically


able to judge the thoughts and intentions
of the heart. The TSA priests are never hap-
py with you, but airport security is a very
strict god. Some people are regular wor-
shippers; others only come on holidays. If
the TSA god has any doubt, you must show
your devotion. Raise your hands and an-
other machine will see if you are sincere."
Haisong is interested. "So you see, Hai-
song," I say, "by crossing the roped-off area,
you ignored everything we love: airport se-
curity. If you want to live here, you have to
worship our god. Come to him with peace,
good thoughts, and not too many liquids,"
We smile. "And he will let you in, too."
"Ming bai le," says Haisong. "I get it."
And I think he does. At the very least, when
he gets out of jail, he'll be able to explain to
all of his Chinese friends about America's
new religion.

U The Drums
For fans of: The Smiths, Soft
Cell
This Brooklyn indie-pop four-
piece is the most hyped New
York band since The Strokes.
The band released its debut EP,
Summertime!, last October and
will be quick to silence those
who say they have a Beach Boys
vibe. The Drums sound more like
Joy Division if lan Curtis was re-
placed with The Cure's Robert
Smith.

U J. Cole
For fans of: Kanye West, Jay-Z
As an aspiring rapper, J. Cole
waited hours in the rain one day
to hand Jay-Z a demo, only to
get the cold shoulder. But he
went on to be featured on The
Blueprint 3's "A Star is Born."
And when Jay-Z started his la-
bel last year, Cole was the first
to be signed.

r Free Energy
For fans of: Cheap Trick, Tom
Petty
When you're packed in a car
with friends on a Saturday night,
dazed and ready whatever
mischief is next, you should blast
Free Energy. They're bringing
the hefty guitar riffs and hooks
of '70s bands like Thin Lizzy
to a new generation. And who
doesn't like Thin Lizzy?


No boundaries: Gainesville Improv Festival plays all


By ALLISON BANKO
avenue writer

Don't you dare throw this lovely
piece of literature that we call The Al-
ligator away. And I'm not suggesting
that you go green and skip your pretty
little feet on over to the recycling bin
either. Save your newspapers; they
could be used as the inspiration for
one of this year's performances at the
Gainesville Improv Festival.
The festival is set to be at the Phil-
lips Center for the Performing Arts
until Saturday, and Chicago-based
headliner, Whirled News Tonight, uses
newspaper clippings brought in by the
audience as inspiration for its perfor-
mances.
"Before the show, the audience is
asked to bring in outrageous articles
that they would like to see interpret-
ed. The articles are tacked on a peg
board on stage, and the Whirled News


Tonight performers pick an article
from the board and just go with it,"
Gainesville Improv Festival's co-found-
er Skyler Stone said.
(Masturbating library man, any-
one?)
Differing from the traditional stage
performances, improve shows hold a lot
of audience interaction, so the line be-
tween the performers and the specta-
tors is thinner than the curtain rope.
"There are no boundaries in these
shows. They depend on the energy of
the night's audience," Stone said.
Although Whirled News Tonight
is the headliner, there are more than
20 other improve troupes from around
the nation setto perform at this year's
event. Each group is unique in their
own, quirky and unscripted perfor-
mances.
Due to the plethora of performers
at the festival, each performance is
one of a kind. Some troupes act out


their suggestions (some are even giv-
en via text message) through the use
of musical instruments, while others
may channel it through a one-act play.
"There is so much variety in these
performances. Each troupe is made
up of such a diverse array of people.
Interpretations are never one in the
same, so a performance is never re-
peated," Stone said.
Many of the performers in the
event are UF alumni. Co-founders of
the Gainesville Improv Festival, Stone
and Tom O'Donnell, are not only for-
mer Gators but also former members
of the UF improvtroupe setto perform,
Theatre Strike Force.
The workshops held by the
Gainesville Improv Festival are open
to the public and those interested are
encouraged to visit gainesvilleimprov.
com to learn more about the work-
shop's instructors and how to reserve
a spot.


All right kids, here's a way to re-
lease your bottled up idea: Whether
you want to witness them through the
start of newspapers, text messages
or musical instruments, Gainesville


Improv Festival offers all delicious fla-
vors. Catch them all through Sunday
Jan. 23 at the Philips Center. Tickets
may be purchased at
performingarts.ufl.edu/tickets.

Hard OFF: When Penises Flop


* HOW TO DEAL WITH ALL YOUR
WHISKEY DICK PROBLEMS

By AMELIA HARNISH
avenue writer

She says...
I love sex. And lucky for me, and the
rest of my fellow females out there, I
have little standing in my way as far
as making it happen. (Except maybe
reputation, but that's a whole other
column.)
It's unfair, really, which is why I feel
especially bad when a guy I'm hook-
ing up with is having performance is-
sues. Maybe he's just had too much
to drink, maybe this is a recurring
problem, but whatever the situation,
it's uncomfortable for both parties. I
can only imagine the embarrassment
that comes along with not being able
to get it up, and I bet it's worse than


the frustration I feel upon realizing
I'm not getting any. But still, I can't
help but think, "Damn it!"
Whenever this happens to me or
a friend we obviously talk about it.
From these conversations, I've no-
ticed some common questions and
thoughts about the experience.
How am I supposed to handle this?
Guys, we are not dick experts. Please
do not make things weird by allowing
us to fondle your semi-limp member
for longer than a few minutes. Be hon-
est with us and yourselves. And do
not ask us to go down on you to get
you going. Gross.
Ladies, don'ttreat it like the elephant
in the room. Be sensitive to the issue,
but at some point you've got to just
give it up and avoid beating his failure
into his head, doingway more psycho-
logical damage than necessary.
Maybe it's me. Being naked in front


of someone is going to make any girl
self-conscious at first. If an erection
does not happen immediately after
you take your clothes off, it is not your
fault, ladies.
Guys, this is why it is importantfor you
to be upfront about the situation be-
cause before we think of your short-
comings, we're thinking: "Oh my God,
are my boobs weird?" or "This is such
bad lighting for my vagina!" Just tell
us you've had too much to drink, and
we can all move on with our lives.
Maybe some guys just get harder
than others? Please enlighten me on
this one, masses, because I just can't
come up with an answer. Is there a
spectrum of hardness or something?
Or is this a sign that my girlfriends and
I should start hooking up soberly?

HEAVY METAL

by ASHLEY McCREDIE, Avenue Writer

Punk rock is making a comeback through studded cloth-
ing and accessories, and you can keep up with this easy
DIY project. Take a simple piece of clothing and give it a
metal makeover by adding silver studs.



Grab some pliers and your preferred
spikes and studs. Use something like
Jewelry Essentials assorted box with
186 studs, $5, Michaels.




Find a garment or accessory that
could use some rocker flare. We
used a little black dress, $50, Zara,
but anything from tank tops to shoes
to leather jackets will do.



Decide on a pattern for the studs.
They can be scattered, in a perfect
line, in a shape or used to make
words. Attach the studs by piercing
them through the fabric and using
the pliers to secure them in the back.
Step 4

After creating your first look, draw
inspiration from more studded items.
These Jeffery Campbell shoes and For-
ever 21 purse can easily be replicated
and made into original pieces by you!

Low-cal, h
By RICHARD 0. STEHLI
avenue writer

While you were out having a good time
Friday night, we blindly sampled a list
of light beer so you wouldn't have to.
Two dozen beers later, we are weary
but wiser. What should you drink?
What shouldn't you drink? What helps
you stay slim? What if you don't like
beer at all? We have everything you
need to know to get started.
Best In Show: Drink Sam Adams Light,
especially if someone else is paying. It
was the most expensive beer we tried
but was the hands down favorite, as
well. It's rich, malty and complex but
drinks a lot heavier that the prototypi-
cal "light beer."
Best Light Beer: For a true light taste,
drink Amstel Light. More reasonably
priced than Sam Adams, Amstel Light
delivers crisp, easy flavor that a few
tasters described as "exactly what a
light beer should be." At only 95 calo-


igh-quality
ries, it shouldn't fill you up or add to
your Freshman 15.
Lightest Beer: For those sophomores
and juniors trying to drop the Fresh-
man 15, your best option is to stop
drinking beer! But, we know you must
drink, so go with Budweiser Select 55
and MGD 64. With 55 and 64 calories
Behind respectively, these
Be.h ind beers sacrifice a lot
of taste and alcohol
to make themselves
more healthy. But it's still fizzy, yellow
and beer-flavored. Plus, it only has half
the calories of other light beers.
Pseudo-Beer: Although hardly beer,
youshouldtryBud LightLimeand Miller
Chill. In one sip you will know whether
you love it or hate it, and maybe you'll
find yourself a new summertime favor-
ite. If you aren't a big beer drinker, try
Michelob Ultra Lime Cactus. It has a
soft, flowery lime taste with hardly any
trace of beer flavor. As well as being
cheaper, compare its 107 calories to


chug fest
the 228 in Smirnoff Ice. They make
a pomegranate-raspberry and an or-
ange-grapefruit flavor, as well.
Best Value: In charge of drinks this
weekend? Buy Keystone Light. It has
a nice beer taste with no off-flavors.
Keystone Light isn't quite as good as
bestsellers Miller Lite and Bud Light,
but the price tag is nearly cut in half.
Natural Light and Busch Light were al-
most as good, but Keystone was our
unanimous favorite among the cheap-
est beers.
Avoid at All Costs: Unless there is a
gun pressed against your temple, do
not drink Heineken Light or Corona
Light. Heineken Light smelled bad
enough to make some of us gag, and
the taste was sour and tinny. Corona
Light was not only skunky but also had
an aftertaste quite reminiscent of ciga-
rette butts.

of the best and worst beers, check out

Hot dogs, hot deals


By ALEX ORLANDO
avenue writer


Deciding where to eat on your next
late-night food run just got harder.
You now have more to add to your
repertoire of fast-food options.
Sandwiched between Blockbuster
Video and Target Copy on Southwest
Archer Road, Orange Tree Hot Dogs,
a mom-and-pop shop gone fran-
chise, is setting up its first store in
Gainesville.
Orange Tree will open at the
Gainesville location on Jan. 28
and has tentative plans for a grand
opening in mid-February featuring a
hot-dog-eating contest and reduced
prices, said Shawn Emling director
of franchising and grandson-in-law
of Orange Tree's founders, Carolyn
and Peter Koppenberger.
Emling also said Orange Tree is
looking to add two new stores in
Gainesville: one near the Oaks Mall
and the other on UF's campus.
"It fits the mold for a budget-minded
college student," Emling said.
He attributes simplicity, cost and
originality to Orange Tree's growing
popularity.
"It's the simplicity of the menu tied in
with the uniqueness of the toppings,
without having the price point that it
dictates," Emlingsaid.
Emlingsaid that specialty items usu-
ally keep customers coming in the


door like the Orange Frost (a type of
orange smoothie), the Onion Sauce
Dog and personal-size pizzas, all fea-
turing secret recipes.
Although Orange Tree is about tra-
dition with most of its locations be-
ing virtually identical, Emling said
the company is willing to change its
hours of operation to accommodate
the college crowd.
The new store will be open 10 a.m.
to 11 p.m. Mondaythrough Thursday
and 10 a.m. to midnight Friday and
Saturday These hours are consider-
ably extended from any of the other
Orange Tree res-
taurants, Emling
said.
Deborah Butler,
vice president
and general man-
ager of Butler
Enterprises, said
she thinks Orange Tree Hot Dogs
will benefit existing shops and res-
taurants in Butler Plaza and will add
variety to the area.
Butler said she remembers eating at
Orange Tree Hot Dogs as a child. The
restaurant's longevity made it ap-
pealing as a tenant, she said.
Butler said, because of all the stu-
dents and families in Gainesville,
she was not surprised to see a new
restaurant looking to set up shop.

UF faces Arkansas


to start busy stretch


* THE GATORS WILL PLAY
TWO GAMES IN THREE DAYS.

By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alligator org

The Gators will be in need of
a comfortable flight home from
Arkansas, as the trip back will be
their only chance to rest during the
next three days.
Tonight's matchup against the
Razorbacks (8-9, 1-1 SEC) at 9 in
Bud Walton Arena will kick off a
hectic period for UF, which will
then have just one day to prepare
for its 6 p.m. home game against
South Carolina on Saturday.
The Thursday-Saturday sched-
ule is new to the Southeastern
Conference this year, as the league
signed a deal with ESPN in order
to get more conference games on
the network, ESPN2 and ESPNU.
UF (12-5, 1-2 SEC) will have to
get used to the quick turnaround,


as the team will repeat this sched-
ule two more times this season.
"It's going to be different for
everyone in the league. It's almost
like an NCAA Tournament situ-
ation where you have one day in
between to prepare," UF coach
Billy Donovan said. "The only dif-
ference in that situation is in the
NCAA Tournament, if you're for-
tunate enough to advance, you're
at least staying at the same site."
But Florida will be without the
luxury of staying put this week-
end, as the team will have to fly
back from Fayetteville early Friday
morning and prepare for South
Carolina on its only day off.
"Because of a lack of depth for
us, how quickly we can get them
back physically and the balance
of preparation going into the next
game ... that is difficult, and that is
challenging," Donovan said. "But
that's what comes with the TV
package that the league was able

Sophomore Erving Walker will only get one day to rest before Florida's game against South Carolina on

UF WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

Gators look to avoid upset


By EUGENIO TORRENS
Alligator Writer
etorrens@allgator org

In its last three games, the UF women's
basketball team has gone 1-2, with losses to
top-10 teams Georgia and Tennessee by a
combined 11 points.
The sole win in that stretch was a road
win against a Mississippi State team with a
12-6 record.
"We drew great confidence from [Ten-
nessee]," UF coach Amanda Butler said.
"What we come away with is can you get
up to play Mississippi State the same way
you played Tennessee? Might be a little
harder."
After the tough competition last week,
facing Alabama (8-10, 0-5 Southeastern
Conference) tonight in Tuscaloosa at 7 may
seem like a step down, but UF (10-8, 3-2
SEC) will attempt to play with the same
intensity it played with against the Volun-
teers to avoid getting upset by the Tide.
"We're not going to have any blowouts
in the SEC," sophomore guard Jordan Jones
said. "Our confidence is high but it can't be


too high where we overlook a team like Al-
abama their record may not show how
good they are. We don't want to go there,
coming off a couple of good performances
and have a let down."
Part of that "good" basketball against the
Volunteers meant crisper play with limited
turnovers something
the Gators had trouble
with on the road against
Georgia and MSU, when
they turned the ball over
21 times in each contest.
Butler said 14 of the
16 first-half turnovers UF
Butler had against UGA were
self inflicted, saying some
turnovers were a byproduct of her team's
aggressive, up-tempo style of play.
"The Mississippi State game was uglier
than it had to be," Butler said. "We do have
to learn to live with a certain amount of
mistakes. The thing we really emphasize is
if we make mistakes, let's make sure we're
making aggressive mistakes. We don't

Floyd rumor tops them all


It's no wonder Florida was able
to bring in what many recruiting
analysts are calling one of the best
classes in recent memory.
Urban Meyer's short-lived retire-
ment turned leave of absence left him
with one helluva sales pitch.
The latest you-wont-believe-this
message board story comes right
from The Man Upstairs, through Ur-
ban Meyer's lips and to new UF com-
mit Sharrif Floyd, the No. 1 defensive
tackle prospect according to Rivals.
com.
Here's what's being floated around
and attributed to Floyd's high school
coaches:
"Sharrif was really confused and
put a call into coach Meyer. When
they spoke, coach Meyer told him
that he had a 'dream' the night before,
and that coach Meyer saw himself on
the sideline coaching Sharrif. Told


E him that it was
a message
from God that
I should come
back and coach,
as I guess if it's
Kyle Maistri my time to die,
Kyle Points I'd rather die
kma istrn@alligatororg on the sidelines
coaching you
than anywhere else in the world.'
"Sharrif talked to us the next day and
said Ohio State is great and all, but
coach Meyer said he would DIE for
me. That's pretty intense. From that
day on Sharrif mainly kept to himself.
But that was the turning point in my
eyes."
This report hasn't been confirmed
by either Meyer or Floyd, and we will
never know whether this actually hap-
pened.

Gators must stop balanced attack


HOOPS, from page 15


to put together, so everyone's going to have
to deal with it."
UF's players are much less concerned
with the new Thursday-Saturday schedule.
Freshman guard Kenny Boynton pointed to
the team's early season success in Atlantic
City, N.J., when the Gators beat then-No. 2
Michigan State and Rutgers on consecutive
nights.
"We did it before when we played the
back-to-back games in New Jersey," Boynton
said. "We did it before, so it's just a mental
thing."
Boynton and sophomore point guard Erv-
ing Walker will have to recover quickly af-
ter matching up with the talented Arkansas
backcourt of Courtney Fortson (17 points,
7.3 assists per game) and Rotnei Clarke (18.4
points per game, 48.8 three-point percentage)
on Thursday.
But Walker played off the responsibil-
ity as no big deal for him and Boynton, who


are first and second on the team in minutes
played this season at 32.4 and 32.3, respec-
tively.
"We're young. We'll have Friday," Walker
said. "We'll just do South Carolina on Friday.
We're not going to look ahead to them. It's all
Arkansas now."
Florida will have plenty to prepare for,
as four Arkansas starters
are averaging more than 13
points per game this year.
The Razorbacks' sub-
M ens .500 record is indicative of
Basketball their struggles early in the
season, when they were
dealing with injuries and Fortson's suspen-
sion. But Donovan pointed to the team's last
three games as a sign of Arkansas' potential:
a 96-85 loss to then-No. 2 Texas, a two-point
loss at Mississippi State and a 71-59 win
against Alabama.
"I don't think they're a team whose record
speaks to where they're at right now," Dono-
van said.


Tide enters with zero SEC wins


W-HOOPS, from page 15

want to make mistakes because
we're hesitant or passive or any of
that."
The Tide has zero conference
wins this year, but Butler is weary
of an improved team playing at
home with seasoned players like ju-
nior Tierney Jenkins.
Jenkins is the SEC's second-
leading rebounder (9.3) and scores
10.8 points per game one of three
Crimson Tide players averaging
double figures.
The guard play Butler braced her
team for, featuring Dedrea Magee
at point and guard Ericka Russell
(10.9 points per game) took a hit on


Sunday.
Junior guard Varisia Raffington,
who led Alabama with 12.2 points
per game, is out for the season with
a torn MCL and partially torn PCL.
The Gators will look to apply
the same type of defensive pres-
sure they have their previous three
games, holding opponents to 59.6
points per game and 39.7 percent
field-goal shooting in that span.
Florida also wants to get out to
a faster start on the road than it did
in Starkville, Miss., where the team
scored seven points in the first sev-
en minutes.
"We're still experiencing some
lulls," Butler said. "We've got to be
hungrier for win No. 4 (in the SEC),
than Alabama is for win No. 1."


KYLE, from page 15


True or not, it says something
about how crazy the recruiting pro-
cess gets.
Either Meyer played the God
card to solidify a commitment from
a kid who was on the fence, or
someone floated a rumor out there
about Meyer going to such lengths
with the intention of soiling his
reputation.
This easily tops the story of


Meyer telling Jevan Snead not to
worry about competing with Tim
Tebow for snaps at quarterback
because Tebow was going to play
linebacker for the Gators.
Again, I can't be sure if either of
these stories are true. The only peo-
ple who know for sure are Meyer,
Floyd and Snead.
One thing I've learned as a re-
porter is that rumors usually aren't
true, but that doesn't mean they're
never true.


Here's where I may differ from
some people out there who some-
times chose to believe stories like
these: I don't care if Meyer did say
these things.
Recruiting is so clearly full of lies
and deceit, and anyone coaches,
media members or players who
chooses not to take that as fact is
only being naive.
Coaches lie to players to get
them on campus. Players hopefully
understand that.


And guess what, players also
lie to coaches; something Meyer
knows first hand.
Former Tennessee wide receiver
Nu'Keese Richardson was commit-
ted to the Gators up until signing
day and even told the Gainesville
Sun's Ed Aschoff that he was com-
ing to Gainesville AFTER already
signing and faxing his papers to
Knoxville.
It's not always the big bad
coaches taking advantage of the


young gullible players.
UF recruits likely have to wade
through a fair amount of B.S. from
Meyer, but be sure that Meyer also
has to guard himself against poten-
tial Richardson situations.
As long as everyone under-
stands that recruiting is a two-way
street filled with broken promises
and abused trust, we can all learn
to laugh at stories like these.
To quote Omar Little from HBO's
the Wire: "It's all in the game."
