Gators sign another top recruit
By BOBBY CALLOVI
Alligator Staff Writer
bcallovi@al gator org


Matt Tripp/ Alligator Staff
UF coach Urban Meyer speaks to the media Wednesday about the players who sent in their letters of intent
on National Signing Day.


r


When Urban Meyer an-
nounced on Dec. 26 he was
stepping down, then switched a
day later to just taking a leave
of absence, it was supposed to
negatively affect the Gators' re-
cruiting efforts.
Since that time, Florida has
turned what started out as a
good class into arguably the
best group of recruits ever.
Meyer added four five-star
prospects, including the na-
tion's top-rated player Moreno
Valley (Calif.) Rancho Verde
High defensive end Ronald
Powell, convinced five-star
safety Matt Elam to return to
the class after a brief switch to
FSU and got five other commit-
ments to round out the class.
Meyer said he was surprised
how good of a class he got de-
spite all the coaching turmoil.
"Urban Meyer and his staff
deserve the credit for doing
this: They got the program to
the zenith of college football,"
ESPN recruiting analyst Tom
Luginbill said. "I think prospec-
tive student-athletes are savvy

"I completely and utterly

is the best ever), but
my warning is recruiting

Tom Luginbill

UF's 2006 class earned na-
tional praise when Meyer signed
former Gators Tim Tebow, Per-
cy Harvin and Brandon Spikes.
That year, the Gators only had
six in Rivals.com's top 100.
With so much talent coming
in, it is easy to see why people
are calling this the greatest class
ever.

Homeless count lowers


* THERE WERE 1,624 HOMELESS
PEOPLE IN 2009.

By MELINDA CARSTENSEN
Alligator Contributing Writer

In 2009, there were about 1,624 homeless
men, women and children on the streets of
Gainesville.
But according to a census conducted by the
Alachua County Coalition for the Homeless
and Hungry, that number has decreased to
about 1,300.
"To see even a slight decrease in homeless-
ness in the current economy tells us that area
service providers are doing a better and better
job helping people get back into housing as
quickly as possible," said Jon DeCarmine, the
coalition's executive director.
This year, the coalition covered areas within


a 53-block radius of downtown Gainesville.
But local homeless advocate Pat Fitzpatrick
was skeptical.
He said he doubts the number of homeless
people in Alachua County has decreased.
"I'd actually say there's more," Fitzpatrick
said. "But homeless people
are told to scatter and hide.
It's hard to find them."
i r DeCarmine isn't sure
what adjustments the coali-
tion will have to make this
year to reflect the results, but
he said homelessness can-
DeCarmine not solely be fixed by giving
people jobs.
The problem, he said, has more to do with
wages.
"The minimum wage is not nearly enough
for people to support a home and lifestyle,"
DeCarmine said. "We're talking about broad
systematic changes we'll have to make."


Reitz gets pizza, 'Panda'


By JOEY FLECHAS

Students hungry for change will
see adjustments to the food options
and dining hall hours on campus.
Papa John's will replace the Noodle
Bar, and Panda Express will replace
Subway in the Reitz Union food court.
Eddie Daniels, Reitz Union execu-
tive director, said he expects both ven-
ues to be open by Summer B.
These new restaurants could be
coupled with new price hikes for meal
plans.
Students who buy meal plans
might see a $50 price increase for all


plans next semester, according to a
proposal endorsed by the Food Ser-
vice Advisory Committee at a meeting
Wednesday.
While the proposal calls for each of
the five plans to cost $50 more, it also
grants 50 more flex bucks for all but the
most expensive plan.

Wheelchairs to get


* THE HANDLES COULD
REDUCE SHOULDER PAIN.

By ERIN O'DEA
Alligator Contributing Writer

A UF professor has a handle on
wheelchair technology.
Mark Tillman, an associate
professor in the College of Health
and Human Performance, said he
received federal funding for a re-
search project that could lead to
the creation of handles for manual
wheelchairs that would allow us-
ers to propel themselves without
pushing on wheel frames.
The handles, which have been
designed but not built, would be
bolted to the wheelchair, Tillman
said. Unlike in an electric wheel-
chair, users would still use their
body to move the chair by pushing
and pulling the handles.
Tillman said manual-wheel-
chair users often suffer from
shoulder pains because they con-
stantly are moving their arms back
into a strained position to propel


the chair.
The handles are designed to
help reduce shoulder pain by
keeping users' arms in front of
them, Tillman said.
"The idea is that your joints
will be in a more neutral position,"
he said.
Orit Shechtman, an associate
professor in UF's department of
occupational therapy, and Scott
Banks, an assistant professor in
the department of mechanical
and aerospace engineering, will
be working with Tillman on the
project.
Tillman said he and the other
professors hope to
On create a product that
Campus can be applied to a
current wheelchair
model or manufactured as part of
a completely updated wheelchair
model.
He said the handles could be
customized for individual chairs.
The National Institutes of
Health awarded funding for the
project through the Basic to Clini-
cal Collaborative Research Pilot
Program in January, Tillman said.


redesign
Tillman said the handles will
take about a month to manufac-
ture and will be placed on an ex-
isting lab chair in the department
of applied physiology and kinesi-
ology.
Tillman and his team will con-
duct a study with 24 wheelchair
users examining posture, wrist po-
sition and physical exertion when
using the device.
"Ultimately, we'll want to have
them have less pain, but it would
be nice if they could have less pain
and not be using extra energy,"
Tillman said.
Richard Nelson, coordinator of
the Disability Resource Center and
an electric-wheelchair user, said
the handles could be a tremendous
advancement for those with the
appropriate upper-body strength.
He likes the sense of indepen-
dence that the electric wheelchair
gives him because it's hard for him
to use a manual wheelchair.
"If this device, this new style
of wheelchair provides that sense
of independence to even one user
then I think that it's a damn good
product," Nelson said.

Professor


discusses


future of


personal


identity
* JAIN: BIOMETRICS WILL
BECOME MORE IMPORTANT.

By MINCH MINCHIN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Future college students may start
to find underage drinking a little
more challenging.
Anil Jain, an award-winning re-
searcher and professor of electrical
and computer engineering at Michi-
gan State University, talked about
how biometrics technology could be
used in the future of personal iden-
tification to about 60 people at Pugh
Hall Wednesday night.
Fingerprints, iris scans, voice
scans and face scans could replace
driver's licenses and passports in the
future, Jain said.
"Sooner or later [biometric tech-
nology] will affect all of us," he said.
"So it is important to understand
it."
Jain discussed the problems with
current identification technologies.
Passwords and personal iden-
tification numbers, he said, are be-
coming increasingly easy to crack.
Passports and driver's
Public licenses are also simple
Health to forge, he said.
College students,
he said, represent one of the largest
populations of people who possess
fake or duplicate IDs.
These forgeries may soon end as
biometric science provides cheap,
effective identification, Jain said.
Simple biometric programs are
used in stores, shops and factories to
limit access to sensitive information
and verify employee data.
Disney World also uses biomet-
rics, using face scans to replace em-
ployee timecards.
Even if the technology becomes
cheap and effective enough to use,
intelligent people will still be able
game the system by creating false
fingerprints or distorting their faces,
Jain said.
"These errors are inevitable," he
said.
Besides the errors, questions
about civil rights and liberty must
also be addressed, he said.
"The U.S. government is con-
cerned with the abuse of the technol-
ogy to suppress peoples' freedoms,"
he said. "What will happen in the
event of misidentification?"
Despite these problems, biomet-
rics still has a bright future, he said.
Travis Pillow, a senior journal-
ism major, said he appreciated Jain's
candid discussion.
"There are a lot of what-ifs here,"
Pillow said. "If you don't explore
those, then you're in trouble. He did
a great job of dispelling the myth of
the perfect fingerprint."

Campus construction increases local gym usage


By DANIELA ABRATT
Alligator Contributing Writer


As Southwest Recreation Center
construction continues, students are
getting their fitness fix off campus.
"We have had one of the largest
increases this semester, probably
the largest since we've been in busi-
ness," said Ken Hynema, general


manager of Gainesville Rock Gym,
704 S. Main St.
UF students now make up about
two-thirds of the total membership
there, with about 150 new members
this semester alone.
Powerhouse Gym, 3441 W Uni-
versity Ave., has experienced similar
growth. Manager Steven Dillenbeck
said the gym saw a membership
surge in January, doubling its stu-


"We're getting 20 new stu-
dents a day."

dent membership to 18 percent.
"We're getting 20 new students a
day," he said.


But Brian Russell, spokesman for
Gainesville Health & Fitness Center,
4820 Newberry Road, disagrees. He
has not seen notable increases in stu-
dent membership and believes New
Year's resolutions account for any
increases.
Pam Hightower, Southwest Rec-
reation Center facilities coordinator,
said there has been no significant
difference in the number of students


using the gym this semester than
last.
"I attribute any changes to the
time of the year, not our construc-
tion," Hightower said.
Alex Mirea, a UF criminology
and mathematics senior, said he
uses Southwest Recreation Center
about three times a week, and the
construction has had no impact on
his routine.

The players in the 2006 class obviously turned their po-

class in Southeastern Conference history.
Although the top three players from that class -
Tebow, Harvin and Spikes led the way, the rest of the
recruits exceeded many's expectations of them. Something
the other 17 players not in the top 100 will have to do if
this class is going to have the same type of on-field success
in their time at UF.
"They have elite players in this class across the board,"
SLuginbill said. "The middle third and bot-

Football be great because not everyone at the top is

In the past, Meyer has been quick to proclaim one or
two of his new signees the next great thing, but he re-
frained from doing it this year.
But he could not help but gush over the defensive line
his coaches have assembled in this class.
The Gators brought in the top defensive end and two
four-star prospects at the position. To fill the inside of the
line, UF got the top-two defensive tackles and a four star
as well.
"I've gotten myself in trouble by anointing players be-
fore they are deserving of it, but as far as a defensive front,
I don't think I've seen anything like this," Meyer said.

Editorial

GOP Barbie

Larimer's views cheapen

Republican women
When the Editorial Board read that Republican Na-
tional Committee co-chair Jan Larimer thought
women need "more hand-holding" than men
throughout the election process, we envisioned a patroniz-
ing man who happened to have a Scandinavian first name.
We were wrong.
Alas, Google Images revealed the awful truth. Larim-
er, a woman, recently explained why she thought so few
women participate in the Republican party.
She blamed the problem on women's reliance on friends
to help them make decisions.
Larimer said committee workshops aimed at involv-
ing women with the party focus on helping them make up
their own minds and carve their own paths.
The statement sounds empowering, but we have to ask:
Who in her right mind would decide to get involved in
politics without first consulting a confidante for advice?
Larimer implied she did. Did she shake up a GOP Mag-
ic 8-Ball or crack open a fortune cookie and hope for an
answer?
We would ask a few good friends for their opinions in-
stead of stubbornly rushing into a situation of such mag-
nitude.
Friends and loved ones who advise someone not to run
for office aren't trying to put a damper on the mood or
crush a political party one household at a time.
They're only trying to save someone from a mistake
that's the political equivalent of getting a tattoo while ut-
terly sauced.
Perhaps a select few could make such a massive choice
on their own, but politicians have teams running the show
from behind the scenes once the ball gets rolling.
Larimer's point is ridiculous. To involve oneself in a
government for the people, by the people and of the peo-
ple without leaning on close comrades for advice seems
obnoxious.
It puts her out of touch with Americans, especially
those with XX chromosomes.
We don't think it's the hand-holding that's alienating
women from her party.
It's probably the condescending stereotypes Larimer
helps perpetuate.
Granted, much of the Board's reaction stems from the
sheer amount of estrogen in the newsroom, but Gallop
polls show that women have a notable tendency to become
Democrats.
It doesn't take a genius to see why.
By painting women as swaying with the fluctuations of
society and basing their political values on their spouses,
girlfriends or book clubs, Larimer takes Americans on an
unhappy trip down memory lane and into the kitchens of
the 1950s.
Someone needs to tell her and much of her party that
times have changed.
Today, women use their own minds and hearts to make
choices but with input from others.
They even win offices based on the strength of their
campaigns and beliefs, even if Larimer doesn't see many
success stories in her own party.

Tebow ad is stealing
Starring in a controversial anti-abortion commercial
bankrolled by a fundamentalist Christian group, Tim
Tebow headlines the first-ever "issue ad" aired on
Super Bowl Sunday and has effectively hijacked the pre-
Super Bowl hype machine.
The biggest issue I have with this commercial is the
tone-deaf nature of the content. The Super Bowl is a time
for commercials featuring anthropomorphic animals and
partial-male nudity, not hot-button social issues. Pretty
much the only time I want to get sentimental with Super
Bowl ads is when I ponder the regal Clydesdale.
Shoehorning fundamentalist Christian beliefs into our
grand orgy of violence and capitalism is bumbling and
tactless.
While I personally suspect that this media maneuver
is designed to start into motion the forces that will even-
tually lead to a paramilitary junta that installs Tebow as
president of the Philippines for life, perhaps it is simply a
vivid example of the brave new world our Supreme Court
has envisioned for us.
When the Supreme Court ruled that corporations and
groups no longer had stringent regulations limiting their
involvement in the political process, maybe gauche politi-
cal advertisements during the most expensive time slots of
the year were exactly what the Supremes had in mind.
Forcing Americans to think about their personal views
on abortion may seem rather jarring to Super Bowl watch-
ers used to GoDaddy.com ads obviously tailored for ap-
ple-faced mouth breathers with pressing Web needs, but
a far more shocking ad will likely never see the light of
day.
President Obama has been feeling the heat over his
campaign promises to close the Guantanamo Bay deten-
tion center where we hold Muslim people suspected of


Super Bowl limelight
Terrorist ties. Rumor has it that
MTV brought out the big Guido
guns in an effort to justify the con-
tinued use of Cuba as a holding pen
for religious zealots.
Titled "Gym/Tan/Call to
Tommy Maple Prayer," this 30-second commercial
letters@alligatororg stars some of the more prominent
"Jersey Shore" cast members frol-
icking in the tropical beach prison. The opening shot has
Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino in a beachside razor-wire
cell dressed in traditional Muslim garb and holding what
looks like a copy of the Quran.
As the camera pans out, The Situation opens up his
holy book and then keeps unfolding it until the audience
sees it is a shiny silver, face-tanning reflector. The Situ-
ation sits down on a lounge chair, and Snooki is seated
next to him looking content and serene. You can tell it's
her by the orange face peeking out from under the hijab
and the overwhelming sense that she is really wanting to
make out.
The rest of the Jersey Shore/Guantanamo commercial
seems far too controversial for people with even a hint of
decency or compassion, and even MTV thought it too in-
cendiary for public airwaves. Muslims are one of the last
minority groups to successfully stave off total assimilation
into the coarse commercial culture America manufactures
like so many Fords and Chevys.
Don't be surprised, though, when the Jersey Shore
"Adhan Abs" DVD hits stores in time for Christmas -
with the tagline "Feel the bum and the blessings of Allah
wherever you worship or work out."

Letters to the Editor
Student Alliance party should put its
money where its mouth is
Mark McShera's letter to the editor
Tuesday was an example of how disgust-
ing, vile, hateful and forgetful members of
the Student Alliance party can be.
In his rambling rage, filled with fac-
tual errors and half-truths, he launched
personal attacks against one of the most
fair and bipartisan leaders on this campus,
Ashton Charles.
Ashton Charles once stepped aside in
an election for a Senate position to allow
Mark McShera to step in.
Her reasoning? It was important to her
to allow more minority party representa-
tion in Senate.
In his letter, McShera accused Charles
of not getting in Senate on her own mer-
its (even though she was elected twice
by overwhelming margins) but instead
through the secret workings of a corrupt
system.
This sort of twisted McCarthyism has
never worked for you, Mark. When you
ran a slanderous and exceedingly negative
campaign with the Orange and Blue Party
last year, you were shot down by students
who wanted to hear about your experience
and ideas.


Now, the Student Alliance party is pol-
luting the Alligator with this filth again. I
speak for my fellow students when I say:
Enough is enough.
I want the Student Alliance party to put
its money where its mouth is and do as
the Unite Party is doing: Run a campaign
about positive ideas and values that cares
more about displaying its own candidates'
experience than attacking the opposing
candidates.


M


Groups should not be judged by the
most extreme of their members
I have concern over the prevalence of
the "Islam is of the devil" T-shirts on the
UF campus.
I am neither Muslim nor anti-Muslim,
but a neutral third party who hopes for
mutual respect. At least within our stu-
dent community.
I consider it an act of aggression to
wear clothing with such sweeping gener-
alizations, and I consider the intelligence
and ethics of the persons involved ques-
tionable.


In the current global scenario, I un-
derstand it is quite easy to feel insecure
because of out-groups, especially if those
out-groups have a number of radical fun-
damentalists who preach and practice vio-
lence.
In spite of this, as critical thinkers, we
college students should not fall into the
trap of severe and unhealthy stereotyping
or resort to despicable, underhanded ac-
tions.


Chris Jaeger It makes me wonder, if we had fewer
UF student restrictions placed on us by our society,
would we too resort to armed violence as
a response to diversity of beliefs and opin-
ion?


Furthermore, such comments hurt de-
vout Muslims, who are just as good people
as anyone else.
When we recall the past, we see the cru-
sades, whose impacts are perhaps still be-
ing felt.
While Jesus taught forgiveness, accep-
tance and love, crusaders called them-
selves "Knights of Christ" and waged
bloody wars motivated by greed and thirst
for power regardless of initial intent -
on behalf of Christ, who symbolized ev-
erything in the world that is peaceful and
good.


Just as it is unfair to judge a Christian
based on the crusades, it is unfair to judge
a Muslim based on a group of fundamen-
talists or jihadists.
Many religious or nonreligious groups
have had periods in their histories that are
not praiseworthy.
It is not sensible to discard or dismiss a
majority based on the actions of a minor-
ity.
The word "Islam" means purity, peace
or obedience, and the word "Muslim" is
defined as someone who submits to the
will of God.
Those who wear words such as "Islam
is of the devil" simply exhibit their own
lack of knowledge, especially when they
are supposed to represent any religious af-
filiation.
I hope UF students and alumni will
be torchbearers of love and enlighten the
world about peaceful coexistence as well
as an appreciation for diversity, rather
than falling to the level of blinded reli-
gious extremists.
Let us tear down the walls that sepa-
rate us from one another and help build a
united world.

Gainesville's most
promising alternative act,
Colourslide, delivers an al-
bum of radio-ready singles
with its sophomore album,
"Everybody's Right About
Everybody." The record's
11 tracks are a tribute to
stadium-filling acts of the
last 20 years.
The album opens with
"Reasons," a pounding
dance track that shows gui-
tarist Dean Newman's ad-
miration for U2's The Edge.
"Komplikated" is epic
enough to compete with
Coldplay.
But the album standout is
"You Got Lucky," a cosmic
disco song about true love
with a synth riff that'll melt
you into your chair. Go to
colourslide.com for more

Plan B(irth control): Who's buying and how does it work?


By Michael Perrone
and Amelia Harnish
avenue writers

He Says...
Nothing can make you go from
ecstasy to agony faster than pulling
out of your lady friend only to wit-
ness the mangled wreckage that
used to be your condom. Instead of
giving yourself a celebratory pat on
the back for another job well done,
you must now act with Jack Bauer-
like cunning to ensure that in nine
months, you won't be in a delivery
room yelling "Push!"
Luckily, the science community
has bestowed upon us the perfect
solution for when your Trojan de-
cides to fall apart like Tim Tebow at
the Senior Bowl: Plan B. Fellas, I'm
sure you know all about "The Pill."
Consider Plan B "The Other Pill." This
emergency contraceptive gives your
lady a super dose of hormones, and
assuming she takes it within a cou-
ple of days of the incident, prevents
her from getting pregnant.


But don't expect this contingency
plan to be as cheap as the one-night
stand that got you into this mess.
Typically, Plan B sells for about $50.
If the lady in question is your girl-
friend, or you just happen to be a
nice guy, go to Walgreens and drop
the cash.
If she is some random girl you
don't plan on seeing again and you
wanna be an asshole, feel free to
leave her hanging. If she threatens
that she won't take the pill unless
you pay, call her bluff. Around Day 2,
she will be driving to CVS so fast you
would think she was Danica Patrick.
Of course, I don't condone such
douchebaggery. My suggestion: Of-
fer to throw down half, that way she
feels comfortable taking the pill,
you don't come off like a jerk and
you leave the door open for a future
booty call.
Ladies, to avoid the panic that
occurs when he tells you that his
rubber broke, be proactive and have
Plan B at your house, just in case.
Too embarrassing? Imagine how we
guys feel when we have to go up to


the 60-year-old female cashier with
a box of condoms and a container of
lube.
Speaking of condoms, guys, learn
the right way to use it. That reservoir
tip is there for a reason; make sure
to leave enough room. And unless
you are hung like Greg Oden, don't
buy Magnums. The golden package
may impress her at first, buttrust me,
she is not gonna be too happy when

are trying to fish it
out of her.
And finally, if
at any point dur-
ing sex you say
to yourself, "This
feels really good
all of a sudden," you might want to
get a status report on your condom.
Otherwise, get ready to dial up Plan
B.
She Says...
Accidents happen. Condoms
break.
You forget to take your pill or
you're not on the pill and he doesn't
pull out.


Whatever the scenario, the freak-
out follows obsessing over when
your last period ended, cursing your-
self for having sex in the first place,
and maybe even googling abortion
clinics. Er, I mean, shmashmortion
clinics.
Relax and praise the sexual
health gods. You have Plan B, a little
pill that offers another option, sav-
ing you from a bigger decision that
no one, regardless of which side of
the issue you fall on, ever wants to
think about.
Plan B is not an abortion pill,
explained Phyllis Craig, registered
nurse practitioner and women's
health expert at the Student Health
Care Center. It only changes the uter-
ine environment, making it harder to
get pregnant. It does what the birth
control pill does, except after the
act.
With the advent and growing
popularity of this helpful tool, some
etiquette regarding its use needs to
be discussed.
Craig recommends keeping a
pack of Plan B pills in your bathroom


for these scary occasions. If you're
18 or older, you do not need a pre-
scription, and you can get it at the
Student Health Care Center or any
pharmacy.
But Plan B is not a suitable plan
A. Not only does it not protect against
STDs, it's not as effective as being
on the regular pill, and at about $50,
it's expensive, Craig said.
And guys, you are notexemptfrom
worrying about this. If an accident
happens, you should offer to help
your girlfriend (or the girl you brought
home last night) secure a dose,
meaning drive her to Walgreens and
cough up $25. The least you can
do is offer because the haunting
thoughts of unwanted pregnancy are
much worse for her, and she'll appre-
ciate the thought, trust me.
In regards to this, Craig agreed,
saying she often sees partners ac-
company women seeking emergen-
cy contraception at the Women's
Clinic.
"This is a mutual responsibility,"
she said. "It's a discussion couples
should be having."

Sundance film released


By JOEY FLECHAS
avenue writer

With the Sundance Film Festival clos-
ing out Sunday, many of the screened
films have a few months before hitting
theaters.
Anybody who isn't a film critic or a
member of the Hollywood elite would
have to wait for wide release dates, and
if it's a smaller independent film, it might
not even reach that wide of an audience.
That's where "Bass Ackwards" strays
from the norm with a marketing approach
fit for its title.
The film was released Monday
through major digital retailers including
iTunes and Amazon.com, one day after
Sundance closed.
Producer Thomas Woodrow said he
knew the idea had never been done be-
fore, and that was part of the reason it
sounded so appealing
"It lines up with the hook of the mov-
ie," Woodrow said. "The trajectory of the
film is bass ackwards."
Two companies, New York-based New
Video and Zipline Entertainment, are
handling the new, innovative distribution
method.
The comedy, which Woodrow said
was well-received at Sundance, centers


on a man who takes his modified-VW bus
cross-country after an affair with a mar-
ried woman ended badly.
It stars little-known Linas Phillips, who
also directs.
Woodrow said Phillips has been very
receptive to different ideas throughout
the process of puttingthe film together.
"Linas is a very collaborative guy. He'll
hear a good idea and take it," he said.

"The trajectory of the film is bas
ackwards."
THOMAS WOODROW
producer


He also acknowledged that part of
the rationale behind such a bold market-
ing plan is to take advantage of a world
where getting movies-even new ones-is
just a click away.
There are still plans to release the
film in theaters later in the spring
Woodrow said that even these days
the quality of the film and the thrill of
moviegoing will always draw people to
the Silver Screen.
"I take it as a complete misconception
that digital platforms make people less
likely to see it in the theater," he said.


Tips for Guys:
Focus on a muscle-
building workout
that is high intensity
with heavy weight
and a low amount of
repetitions.

+Tips for Girls:
To get toned and
slim, concentrate
on endurance train-
ing with moderate
strength training.



unges:
Works: Glutes,
hamstrings,
obliques, core
and lower back.
How to do it: Step
forward with your
right leg and lower
your body down
so that your thigh
and shin form a
90-degree angle
and the knee
doesn't go past
the toes. Your
left knee should
touch the ground.
Alternate legs.
That's one rep.

perfect bathing-suit body We have tips from UFstrength and conditioning coach
Allison Bradshaw and Derek Rakestraw, graduate assistant for strength and
conditioning for UF's Department of Recreational Sports, on the best ways to
get in shape for this year's break

ull-ups:
Works: Biceps, forearms, upper back and fats.
How to do it: Grab a pull-up bar with your palms facing away from you. Slowly lower
yourself so that your arms are straight and your back is flat. Using your arms, shoul-
ders and back, pull yourself up so that your chin crosses the bar and squeeze your
shoulder blades together. Lower yourself back to the dead-hang position. That's one
rep.













Works: Quads, hamstrings, glutes, calves, upper back, abs and obliques.
How to do it: Place the barbell on the top of your back and below the neck. With the
feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart, keep your back flat and sit down lower-
ing yourself so that your thighs become parallel with the floor, keeping your weight on
your heels. Extend your legs to stand back up. That's one rep.


beadlift:
Works: the lower body and back, hamstrings and glutes.
How to do it: With a barbell on the ground, place your feet underneath the bar with
shins touching the bar. Grip the bar with your palms facing the floor, sit down so your
thighs are parallel with the ground and using your hips, stand up. That's one rep.

Five reasons to drink local


By RICHARD 0. STEHLI
avenue writer

Last summer, you never would have heard me
telling you to drink local, because you couldn't.
Thankfully, that all started to change in April, when
Swamp Head Brewery brewed its first batch of
beer. Founder Luke Kemper returned home from
his undergraduate work in beer-soaked Boulder,
Colo., and saw Gainesville to be lacking. In his
own words, "I realized how great it would be to
have a local beer in Gainesville." Last Friday, I had
the chance to sit down with Kemper and Swamp
Head master brewer Craig Birkmaier to sample
the beer and talk shop, and let me assure you, it
is great to have a local beer in Gainesville.
The Beer Is Good With five very distinct
brews from Swamp Head, it's easy to find some-
thing to love. For those who prefer a light, crisp
taste, we have the honey cream ale, Wild Night.
For the wheat lover there is Cottonmouth, a Bel-
gian wheat with some elements of a hefeweizen.
Midnight Oil packs an incredible amount of cof-
fee flavor into an already solid oatmeal stout.
The pale ale, Stump Knocker, is hoppy enough to
satisfy yet easy to drink. Swamp Head's flagship
beer is Big Nose, a fantastic India Pale Ale that
pairs a massive shot of hops with a full body.
It's Only Getting Better The only thing I
liked more than Big Nose IPA was the new and
improved Big Nose IPA, soon to replace the old
recipe. Birkmaier is always playing with the main


lineup and creating new beers. Kemper, always
tweaking the business aspect of the brewery, is
working on certification to bottle and sell Swamp
Head in stores.
The Work of Men, Not Machines Birkmaier
is as much an artist as a scientist. His recipes
have been tailored from years of award-winning
amateur brewing and are not just based on some
generic algorithm. Several started as copycats of
big name beers, but as Birkmaier says, "Why try
to clone it when I can do better?"
Keeping It Local The guys at Swamp Head
let their beers showcase the products of North
Central Florida. Wild Night is flavored with Tupelo
honey, world famous for its
quality but collected exclusive-
lyin Florida. MidnightOil uses
locally roasted organic Sweet-
water coffee. "It's expensive,"
Kemper said, "but we figured
we should use the best."
This Is Your Beer Put
Swamp Head among the ranks of Tim Tebow,
championship rings and Burrito Brothers as rea-
sons you are proud to be a Florida Gator. As an
early adopter, you get bragging rights for all time;
you can tell your kids thatyou drank Swamp Head
back in 2010. When you are proud of what you
drink it tastes so much better.
Drink Swamp Head exclusively atStubbie Shirt
Pub, Satchel's Pizza, Alcove, The Laboratory and
The Market Street Pub.

You've seen him in his basketball
shorts and jersey running down the
court, and you've seen her cheering
on the sidelines in her glittery uni-
form, but you've never seen them
like this.
UF basketball player Chandler
Parsons and Dazzler Christie Garcia
showed us what they wear off the
court during a photo shoot Monday.
Garcia arrived first, carrying
a Gator orange duffel bag full of
clothes, shoes and accessories from
her stylish closet. Parsons showed
up five minutes later in blue jeans, a
gray sweatshirt and black Converse
sneakers, all of which were used in
the shoot. His girlfriend accompa-
nied him, and he reached for his
double chocolate chip Frappuccino
before we started shooting.
Garcia and Parsons were dressed
in shirts, accessories, dresses and
jeans provided by Wolfgang and
Calzatura in addition to the clothes
they brought from their own ward-
robes.
Garcia's tiny frame made every-
thing look fabulous, but Parsons
couldn't fit into everything provided
for him, seeing as he is 6 feet 9
inches tall. But his personal style
shone through as he made a state-
ment in his own Ed Hardy jeans.
"I am pretty fashionable, but
pretty laid back," he said. "To class
I usually just wear basketball stuff,
but when I go out I will wear a but-
ton-up, polo or V-neck."
Garcia said her style is "punk
rocky, but [she] still like[s] to look
girly. Not too scene-ish."
After stylingthree looks each, the
shooting began. Parsons was quite

natural in front of the camera and
was comforted by his girlfriend's
presence (she's only 5 feet 2 inches
tall we don't know how it works ei-
ther). Garcia's smile shone through
the lens, and she showed off her
Dazzler moves and dancing muscles
with some jumping shots.
During the shoot, we also got to
know their shopping secrets.
"I love Express, Banana Repub-
lic and American Apparel," Parsons
said. "I usually shop in Orlando."
Garcia, who is turned off by the
lack of stylish stores at the Oaks
Mall, said she does her shopping at
"Bebe, Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors
and Arden B." She also loves Inter-
mix because it carries many brands,
and she said she gets her shoes
from Koko & Palenki (a boutique in
Miami).

"I love Express, Banana
Republic and American Apparel.
I usually shop in Orlando."
CHANDLER PARSONS
UF basketball player

Garcia and Parsons differed in
sense of style and shopping loca-
tions, but both commented on their
love of shoes and watches.
"I like casual shoes," Parsons
said. "My favorites are Creative Rec-
reation."
And Garcia accessorizes her out-
fits with fun boots and high heels
adorned with studs.
The shoot had to wrap up pretty
early so both student-athletes could
make it to class and practice on
time, but as they walked away, it
was clear that Garcia and Parsons
can manage school, sports and es-
pecially style. Be sure to cheer on
Parsons and the Gators as they take
on Alabama tonight at 7 on ESPNU.

Donovan to face


former assistant
By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alligator org

At least one apple didn't fall too far from Billy Donovan's
coaching tree.
Anthony Grant, a longtime assistant under Donovan, has tak-
en the reins at Alabama this season and will face his former men-
tor tonight at 7 when the Crimson Tide (13-8, 3-4 Southeastern
Conference) host the Gators (15-6, 4-3 SEC) in Tuscaloosa, Ala.
Grant coached under Donovan for 12 years, two at Marshall
and 10 at Florida, serving as the associate head coach on the 2005-
06 national championship team before taking his first head coach-
ing job at VCU the next season.
"Obviously my relationship with coach Donovan
is much bigger than basketball, but when the
game starts, it's a basketball game and it's the
guys on the court that really make the differ-
ence."
Anthony Grant
Alabama head basketball coach


After Grant left UF, Donovan told VCU athletics director Rich-
ard Sander he just made one of the biggest steals in the country, as
Grant should have been a head coach long before 2006.
"I was really surprised in a lot of ways that earlier on, he was
not approached more about being a head coach," Donovan said.
"I'd almost liken it to a little bit of the Charlie Strong situation,
where Charlie probably should have been a head coach a long
time ago. I think a lot can be said for Anthony in the same re-

Gators round out recruiting class with lineman


By JAIME MANHEIMER
Alligator Writer

TAMPA In front of friends and family,
Tampa Catholic High offensive lineman Chaz
Green made his college intentions known by
'Gator chomping.'
Green signed his letter of intent to play at
Florida at a ceremony at his high school, becom-
ing the 28th and last member of the Gators' 2010
class.
At 6-foot-6, 290 pounds, Florida is getting an
impact lineman who can't wait to arrive in The
Swamp.


"I'm looking forward to running onto the
field on game day," Green said. "I'm ready to
come in and work hard."
Green has always been
known for his attributes off
the field but needs to im-
prove in certain areas to suc-
ceed at the next level.
"The Gators are getting
a great player, with a great
Green work ethic, and great natural
ability," Green's high school
coach, Bob Henriquez, said. "He needs to get
stronger, he's a great pure athlete, and he has


to learn how to really play the position. Right
now, I think his pass blocking is a little ahead
of his run blocking ability, but going up against
bigger stronger guys in practice is going to help
him get better."
Henriquez remembers Green as a 6-foot-5 ju-
nior, whose main sport was basketball. He had
just transferred from Palm Harbor High where
he played defensive end and tight end.
"When I first met Chad he was about 260
and had a deep basketball background," Hen-
riquez said. "He came to me and asked 'Coach

* THE GATORS HOST NO. 22
VANDERBILT TONIGHT AT 7.

By EUGENIO TORRENS
Alligator Writer
etorrens@alligator org

Three home games in a row for the
Gators could mean one thing: a spike
in business at Jimmy John's Gourmet
Sandwiches on University Avenue.
That's where guard Jordan Jones
stops to eat as part of her routine before
home games.
UF (12-9, 5-3 Southeastern Confer-
ence) starts a three-game home stint to-
night at 7 by hosting No. 22 Vanderbilt
(16-6, 5-4 SEC).
Coach Amanda Butler expects this
game to be one of the most physical
games for her team this season, if not
the most physical.
She stressed the Commodores' intel-
ligence, pointing out how they rarely
run set plays, rendering them more
unpredictable and harder to gameplan
against than most teams.
Add the fact that four of Vander-
bilt's starting five are
upperclassmen, and
it's no wonder Butler
stressed the need for
Women's her team to be defen-
Basketball sively aware.
Without sets to
look at on film, the
Gators will be looking at defensive con-
cepts: how to handle a certain screen or
what to do when a certain Commodore
is on the perimeter as opposed to trying
to anticipate the play because of Van-
derbilt's dribble drive offense.
Limiting Vanderbilt's looks from
behind the three-point line will be
paramount, as will limiting the Com-
modores' transition- and half-court of-
fense.
Against the Rebels, UF surrendered
a 17-point lead on transition buckets
and three-pointers before reclaiming
the lead.
"There can't be a worse feeling than
having a huge lead and thinking 'We
got this' and we worked so hard for
that lead and then end up on the wrong
side of it," Jones said. "I don't want to
find out the hard way against Vandy
that we had a big lead and we blow it."
Since the Gators can't memorize the
Commodores, they are focusing on de-

game starts, it's a basketball game and it's the guys on the court
that really make the difference."
Having worked together for more than a decade, Grant and
Donovan developed similar coaching styles, and their teams
run many of the same plays and defensive sets. Donovan said
the Gators and Tide will employ most of the same concepts to-
night, with the differences due to the teams' personnel.
UF will look to get its guards back on track after a shaky per-
formance against Tennessee on Sunday, while Alabama will
rely on the inside-outside combo of guard Mikhail Torrance
(15.1 points, 5.5 assists per game) and forward JaMychal Green
(14.6 points, 7.2 rebounds per game).


"We're doing a lot of similar things on offense and defense,"
Donovan said. "In a lot of ways, preparation-wise, there will be
some concepts that our guys totally understand."
While at UF, Grant recruited guard Ken-
ny Boynton as a ninth and 10th grader, and
the freshman made strong comparisons be-
tween Donovan and his proteg6.
Men's "Alabama's more of a team that plays just
Basketba ll like us with coach Grant," Boynton said. "He
coaches just like coach Donovan."
"They're running basically the same stuff
that we run," Boynton added. "I think he's a great coach a
lot like coach Donovan. That's who he learned from, so they're
a lot alike."

forgotten about her offensive threat,
which has grown with her ball-handling
skills and evolution into a more complete

"She's one of the reasons why they're

she said. "She's one of
the ones that really

Look no further than the individual
workouts during Florida's bye week last
week, when players started 30-minute
individual workouts that had shooters
drenched in sweat at the end.
"The more practice and reps you get,
the more confident you are," Butler said.
"Shooting is about confidence, so yeah -
picking up a couple extra hundred shots
in a week, should you feel better going
into that week's game? Absolutely, and
that's what we saw."

what position do you think I should be playing?'
I responded by saying 'Chaz, if you play your
cards right you can be playing offensive tackle on
Sundays' and he gave me a look that showed me
he had a little doubt."
Henriquez then assured Green of his poten-
tial.
"I said 'Chaz, let's be realistic,'" Henriquez
said. "I told him he'd be 290 (pounds) by spring
of his junior year. He came back from Christmas
break and we were having a workout and I asked
him how much he weighed. He said 290. The rest
is history.
"And since then, with all of his athletic ability,
he's been so determined to get better everyday. "
Green, a four-star recruit according to Rivals.
com, had offers from USC, Tennessee and Ohio
State before he ultimately chose Florida.
Also highlighting Tampa Catholic's signing
was Green's teammate Christian Green. The four-
star athlete had Florida in his top-three schools,
according to Rivals.com, but went with FSU.

"U"-turn to UF


Gators pick up recruits out of Miami


By JAIME MANHEIMER
Alligator Writer

The city of Miami has always been a trend-
setter, especially on the gridiron.
Since 1999, one trend has been Miami
Northwestern High's annual beatdown of in-
ner-city rivals Booker T. Washington High.
Until, on Oct. 3, Booker T. Washington
upset nationally ranked Northwestern 35-28.
At the end of the game, two of Washing-
ton's top prospects, four-star defensive end
Lynden Trail and wide receiver Quinton
Dunbar, went to midfield and started a cheer
that was unfamiliar to most residents of the
area to celebrate their team's first win over its
rival since 1999.
Instead of throwing up the "U" sign, they
started "Gator chomping."
"I was committed to the Gators for about
six months (before the Northwestern game),
and I had the Gators in my heart and knew
that's where I wanted to be," Trail said.
"When I put the hat on and went to the mid-
dle of the field to do the chomp, it felt like
reality was setting in, and I knew I wanted to
be a Gator."
Trail, who has been committed to Florida
since October, convinced Dunbar to switch
his oral commitment from Miami to Florida.
"Don't get me wrong. I love UM," Dun-
bar said. "I felt like I was going to UM for
the wrong reasons. Outsiders expected it and
were telling me to go to Miami. So I decided
to de-commit and go back to the whole re-
cruiting process and see what was out there
for me.
"When I came up to Gainesville (for an of-
ficial visit), I fell in love with it and knew I
wanted to play here for the next four years."

"It's absolutely shocking to me," Newberg
said. "It's a real head-scratcher."
The Gators aren't the only team that has
benefited from the plethora of talent in South
Florida.
Florida State signed five-star defensive
back Lamarcus Joyner (Ft. Lauderdale St.
Thomas Aquinas) and four-star linebacker
Jeff Luc (Port St. Lucie Treasure Coast High).


West Virginia has also recruited well in
South Florida.
Last year, the Mountaineers brought in
four-star dual-threat quarterback Eugene
Smith (Miramar High). This year, they
signed four-star wide receiver Ivan McCart-
ney, Smith's former teammate.
"One thing you have to recognize is that
not everybody from South Florida can go to
Miami," Newberg said. "So that really opens
the door for other schools to recruit down
there."

Reloading the Gators
Next year, the Gators will be without
Heisman-winning quarterback Tim Tebow.
The team's identity has yet to be deter-
mined, but UF's 2010 recruiting class is built
around defense.
"[Florida's] identity depends on how their
team evolves," said Newberg. "The keys are
going to be turned over to (quarterback) John
Brantley, and he can't do it by himself so the
receivers have to step up. If they don't step
up, I imagine the team will be characterized
as a team whose offense struggles and wins
by defense."
Dunbar plans on being able to step up and
have an immediate impact on the field, while
Trail has done plenty of talking to other Flor-
ida recruits.
"The main thing I tell [recruits undecided
between UF and UM] is that they will have a
much better chance to play," Trail said. "The
main things we need are receivers. Randy
Shannon came out and said that there were
only a limited number of positions open at
UM.
"So what I did was start calling a lot of re-
cruits letting them know we need help at the
receiver position."
The 2010 Gators will feature a lot of new
faces on both sides of the ball, but those new
faces hope to bring back some old hardware.
