Sorority hopefuls race to end of Bid Day


By KAT BEIN
Alligator Staff Writer

Barbecue sizzled, DJs spun and
young women screamed in uncon-
trollable glee as about 1,000 people
crowded both sides of Southwest
Eighth Street on Tuesday afternoon
to witness a tradition: sorority Bid
Day.
The newest sisters received their
bid cards at the Reitz Union, which
told them which house they'd been
welcomed into.
They then came rushing in little
groups toward the houses, passing
through Norman Tunnel, around
Norman field and down Southwest
Eighth Street.
The crowd was divided.
The sorority sisters stood
clumped in colorful groups in front
of their respective houses on the
east side of the street.
Meanwhile, hundreds of men
stood watching across the way
to cheer on the running sorority
hopefuls and boo those who only
walked.
Each group of girls was decked
out in their own house colors and
silly hats.


The Delta Gamma girls wore
sailor caps, and the Alpha Epsilon
Phi ho wore similar green and white
ones.
Though the sisters themselves
declined to comment on the excite-
ment of the day, the bystanders
were more than happy to share their
sentiments.
"This is the most hot girls
you're ever going to see in
one place, at one time."
Luke Epstein
Freshman

"This is the most hot girls you're
ever going to see in one place, at
one time," said UF freshman Luke
Epstein, who watched Tuesday's
event.
In the great fervor of running,
hugging, kissing, picture taking and
checking of make-up via reflections
in car mirrors, there was plenty to
gawk at.
Jennifer Marty, a senior adver-
tising major, turned out to observe
the madness with some of her girl-
friends.
"It's like running with the bulls,"
she said, "in sundresses.".


Two Pi Beta Phi alumni celebrate the entrance of their new sorority sisters at Norman Field during
the sorority bidding event Tuesday afternoon.


Aziz Ansari to headline


2010 Gator Growl


By KAT BEIN
Alligator Staff Writer

Up-and-coming comedic star Aziz An-
san, famous for his work with sketch group
Human Giant and recent NBC hit "Parks
and Recreation," will be coming to rock the
socks off of Gainesville as the headliner of
this year's Gator Growl on Oct. 15.
The Kanye West-impersonating, food-
loving funny man is getting paid $100,000
to perform his stand-up for The Gator Na-
tion.
The routine is sure to please everyone,
said Bryan Griffin, spokesman for this year's
Gator Growl.
"We chose Aziz because he kind of rep-
resents the dynamic type of show we're


trying to do this year," Griffin said. "We're
hoping he can help establish the show with
the whole celebration-type theme."
Celebration is the name of the game this
year, Griffin said, adding that he and his
team are working hard to make
Gator sure this year's Growl is better
Growl than the last few. It should be
fun for everyone, he said.
"This show is going to be completely dy-
namic from beginning to end," Griffin said,
"no lulls, no parts people will miss ... a gi-
ant celebration."
For one thing, the show has become
more interactive. Students and alumni who
want a chance to be a part of the show are
encouraged to submit video skits at www.

Machen speaks to crowd at ribbon-cutting for rec center


* OTHER FLORIDA UNIVERSITY
REPRESENTATIVES ATTENDED.

By JOEY FLECHAS
Alligator Staff Writer
As students jogged along the indoor track upstairs and ped-
aled on the exercise bikes near the tall glass windows, more
than 100 faculty, staff, students and guests applauded Tuesday
afternoon's ribbon-cutting at the newly renovated Southwest
Recreation Center.
UF officials, including President Bernie Machen, spoke to
commemorate the building's official grand opening.


Standing just inside the new front entrance, viewing the
completed center for the first time, Machen said it looked'spec-
tacular.'
"You know it's a good renovation when you can't remem-
ber the old building," he said.
Speaking to a crowd that included recreational-activities
representatives from the University of Central
On Florida, University of South Florida, University
Campus of West Florida and Florida A&M University,
Machen said he was impressed with the facility,
which he called the cornerstone of the southwest corner of cam-
pus.
"We want students to be healthy," he said. "But more im-
portantly, we want to prepare them to be healthy for the rest


of their lives."
After the ribbon-cutting, all were invited on tours of the fa-
cility, and cake was served in the lounge area, which has sev-
eral large flat screen televisions and a smoothie bar.
Robert Carroll, director of campus recreation at Florida
A&M, said the additions and renovations make for a phenom-
enal facility.
"Now it looks like you've reclaimed your spot at the top of
the recreational totem pole," he said.
Students rushed in for the RecSports Extravaganza, in which
a few hundred students flocked to a : -.I .rl: :II court for the
Sport Clubs fair, fitness demonstrations and free T-shirts.
The Sport Clubs fair, which is typically held at the Broward
Outdoor Recreation Complex, drew more interest than usual.

According to the website, submis-

The best three from students and
the best three from alumni will be

The night of the show, the first

be declared live.
There's also a contest asking for
submissions of photos from Gator

will be printed on the front page of
the Gator Growl 2010 program, ac-
cording to the website.
Tickets for the event are $15 for

of that."
The works originate from all over the
continent, said Jason Steuber, the Cofrin
Curator of Asian Art. The pieces come
everywhere from central Asia to China,
Tibet, Korea, Japan and down into south-
east Asia.
He said the works also come from all
throughout history. Some originate from
several thousand years B.C., while others
originate from the contemporary era.
He said that Chinese jades from the
Ming and Qing dynasties, which stretched
from the 1300s to the 1900s, were an ex-
ample of the works that Cofrin left to the
museum.
Cofrin's donation, along with the
museum's existing Asian art collec-
tion, will eventually be moved into the
26,000-square-foot David A. Cofrin Asian
Art Wing, which will open its doors in
2012.
Prior to his death, Cofrin donated $10
million to the construction of this wing.
With the new donation and the new sec-
tion to house, the current 130-piece Asian
art collection will triple in size, he said.
Three new galleries will be featured in
the wing along with the existing ._ :in._, ,


he said.
Though Cofrin's name will forever be
attached to the new wing, his philanthro-
py was not strictly devoted to Asian art.
"He also assisted in acquisitions in the
contemporary, the modern and the pho-
tography collection," Wroath said.

"The 312 works that were added
to the Asian collection were a
tremendous gift."
Tami Wroath
Harn Museum PR Director

The 312 works Cofrin donated to the
museum are worth an estimated $4.2 mil-
lion.
Wroath said that over the course of his
life, he donated more than $30 million to
the museum.
"I think he believed in the mission
of getting Gainesville an exceptional art
museum," Steuber said. "As well as, I
think, filling the need here for a center
for the arts on campus ... I think that was
the grand scheme to develop a great cul-
tural resource for not only the University
of Florida, but also for the community at
large."

Bad Eggs

No one is safe from

scary foods

Will it ever be safe to go back to the grocery store?
Still cowering in fear at the supermarket, clutch-
ing our grocery baskets as we inspect product label
numbers on cartons in our own, makeshift, at-home test for
salmonella - .II.. - i a massive recall last week of more than a
half billion eggs, and just when you thought it was OK to clip
coupons, things just got scarier.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture recently announced
380,000 pounds of lunch meat used in dell sandwiches at Wal-
Mart stores nationwide may (or may not) be contaminated with
Listeria.
According to the USDA, Listeria can cause high fevers, a stiff
neck, nausea and (no big deal) listeriosis, which can be fatal.
A stiff neck followed by a potentially-you-may-or-may-not-die-
a-horribly-painful death all because we were running late to
class and grabbed a smokehouse hero sandwich from one of
Wal-Mart's dell cases? And don't even think about making an
omelet until this all settles down.
As of Friday, more than 1,000 people have been exposed
to the salmonella in the egg recall that affects 28 percent of the
United States.
Luckily, the egg recall has not yet reached Florida, but the
Food and Drug Administration warns the outbreaks are not
over. Cue the scary "Jaws" theme music.
And listen up, all you smug vegans and vegetarians out
there: You aren't so immune to this either.
Leafy vegetables account for the third-most tainted food
item behind poultry and beef, according to a recent Center for
Disease Control report.
Is it just us, or is grocery shopping becoming more like a
game of "Press My Luck?"


Uplifting Upset


Happen to catch the
Miss Universe Pag-
eant Monday eve-
ning? Even know it was on
TV? Yeah, we didn't either.
But this year was special.
And now we feel bad.
For the first time in nearly
two decades, the title of Miss
Universe, at least for this
year, belongs to Miss Mexico,
breaking an apparent curse
for our neighbor to the south.
And we couldn't be hap-
pier for a pageant none of us
watched. For a country rav-
aged by drug-cartel violence,
poverty and that is still recov-
ering from the near $2 billion
worth of damage Hurricane
Wilma caused to some of the
country's most popular tour-
ist destinations, perhaps this
is a simple start to recovery
for Mexico. We realize a pag-
eant winner can never hope
to solve a country's problems,
but Miss Navarette, you're
surely going to have to try!


You have the world's spotlight
now, so use that crown well!
And considering one mem-
ber of the Editorial Board just
returned from a vacation in
Mexico, we know the poverty
first hand in that country.
We've seen children,
grown women, elderly wom-
en selling hand-crafted hand-
kerchiefs for a dollar a piece
on the road. We've seen the
light in a child's eyes when we
gave him a dollar for a hand-
kerchief we didn't need.
So when we found out the
United States lost again, (we
haven't won since 1997 if you
don't include Puerto Rico), we
couldn't have been happier to
continue our own what-did-
we-do-to-deserve-this-we're-
like-so-pretty losing streak.
It almost makes us sad we
didn't have any idea the pag-
eant was going on. Almost.
We're just glad Miss Mexi-
co wasn't asked a really tough
question about map reading.

As if on a mission from the almighty bearded
king Chuck Norris himself, freshmen guys have taken it
upon themselves to exercise their first freedom away from
home.
They treat the five-blade, best-invention-since-spell-
check Gillette Fusion like it's some torturing device
thought up by the Jigsaw Killer (when we already know
the worst torturing device ever created is Miley Cyrus'
split personality).
As a result, freshman guys' non-grizzled, but rather
disgusting, faces could only be loved by their mothers.
And certainly not by any college girls.
We get it. You've never gotten to grow your facial hair
because your mom threatened to stop giving you latkes
and brisket if you didn't shave every morning.
You've already gone a week without shaving now;
you can see that you'll never get more than a few scrag-
gly hairs.
Part of becoming a man is learning that some men are
more endowed than others. Some have Burt Reynolds-
like mustaches or beards like Al's (from "Home Improve-
ment"). Some have sparse strands of pubescence.
And you're not alone. Our beloved No. 12 can't grow
more than a furry upper lip, and if the Florida Gators won't
even allow our future Heisman winner to wear a mini-
Kerwin Bell-like, pencil-width mustache, what makes you
think that your first facial hair actually looks manly?
Please, if you're whiter than paper, and if you have hair
darker than charcoal, please, please stay away from the
leprechaun-esque chinstrap.
You have a better chance of looking like the Old Spice


S man while wearing a pink tutu
and singing Justin Bieber while
wearing a dozen Silly Bandz on
each of your puny wrists then
while sporting your forest of inch-
long chin hairs.
Andrew Pantazzi If you can grow a Wolvermine-
Ietters@aligator.org style beard, go for it... During Oc-
tobeard or No-shave November,
but not while we're trying to enjoy the end of summer.
We'd be better off if you just drank the kool-aid. At
least then you'd have kool-aid mustaches.
Confession time:
I can't grow real-man facial hair. It seems my Jewish
and Greek heritage has overlooked myself and my sib-
lings.
I cannot grow facial hair, so I've discovered a way
around my disability....
I shave.
Go figure. Instead of attempting to show my man-
hood through non-existent stubble, I show my manhood
through tests of intestinal fortitude (see the Alligator's vid-
eo of me eating Gator Dawg's Ghost Chill Dog for proof). I
also regularly sprint on shards of glass. (It prepares me for
my future career as a pain-resistant superhero.)
If you're going to be a manly freshman, then you need
to eat 32-ounce steaks, run weekly marathons, bench press
ACRs' pick-up trucks and shave every day.
I get your man-envy for the goatee; I share your envy.
But work around your youth and/or bad genes and shave.
You'll make UF look less like a school full of 12-year-old,
non-stop cursing NOObz on "Halo."

Students: Beware of job scams


With the economy the way it is, most
students would jump at the chance
to earn some money while looking
for a full-time job. That's why many college
students would jump at the chance to become
a mystery shopper. All you have to do is make
a particular purchase in a store or restaurant,
and then evaluate their experience. Sounds
too good to be true, right?
Well, it just might be. Recently, the Federal
Trade Commission has noticed that mystery
shopping companies may be targeting un-
dergraduate students and recent grads with
bogus job opportunities.The scam starts out
sounding legitimate. People answer an e-mail
or advertisement looking for part-time work.
The scammer tells you that they need mystery
shoppers.
You can shop in your own time and collect
a fee. If you've never been a mystery shopper,
the next part won't strike you as strange: the
company is going to send you a check to use
to buy the small items you need to purchase to
appropriately rate a retailer. Legitimate mys-
tery shopping companies do not do that. They
pay only after you shop and file an evaluation
form and the pay is a very modest amount.
The second red flag is that the check is go-
ing to be for a lot of money - likely $3,000 to
$5,000 - which is vastly more than you need.
The con-artist's excuse for sending so much
money is that they want you to take your fee
out of the check, plus the cost of whatever
you're buying. And then, they want you to

Cheryl Johnson wire the rest of the mon-
U-Wire ey in order to suppos-
edly evaluate a bank or
wire service. They sug-
gest you wait until the check clears to send
them the money. The check then bounces after
the person wires the money, leaving the shop-
per liable for the fake check. People who ap-
ply for the secret shopper or mystery shopper
jobs are told by the company that they have
only 48 hours to complete the assignment or
they will lose the job.
Arizona's Attorney General says, "Con-
sumers need to know that a legitimate com-
pany will never send you a cashier's check
out of the blue or require you to send money
to someone you have never met.
The scam artists use realistic looking
documents, the 'secret' nature of the job, and
the 48-hour deadline to pressure consumers
into cashing the check and wiring the money
quickly before the bank or the consumer can
determine it was a fake check. By then, it's too
late."
So if a mystery shopper program asks
you to pay an upfront fee to become an
employee or deposit a check from some-
one you don't know and then wire
money back, walk away immediately.

consumer issues, visit ftc.gov or call toll-free,

No parole for convicted dog torturer; victim wags tail


AP Photo
Louis Vuitton, a pit bull, leaves an Alabama Board of Pardons and
Paroles hearing in Montgomery, Ala., Aug. 24.


* THE PIT BULL WAS
BURNED AND BEATEN.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MONTGOMERY, Ala. - A
scarred but friendly pit bull
named "Louis Vultton" was the
star witness Tuesday as an Ala-
bama state board denied parole
for the man convicted of spray-
ing him with lighter fluid, setting
him on fire and beating him with
a shovel.
After the 8-year-old dog was
led into the packed hearing room,
the Alabama Board of Pardons
and Paroles voted 3-0 to deny
early release to 23-year-old Juan
Daniels of Montgomery, who was
sentenced in 2009 to nine years
and six months in prison, a record
in Alabama in an animal cruelty
case.
Daniels, whose supporters said
he had been sentenced far more
harshly than criminals who harm
human beings, will be eligible for
parole again in July 2012.
The dog stuck his head forward
for everyone who wanted to pet
him as he entered. He bears burn
scars from his head to his wag-
ging tail, including white lines on
his brown body where the burn-
ing lighter fluid seared his skin.
"You have to see the scars to


see what was done to him," said
the dog's owner, Dee Hartley of
Montgomery. She and her hus-
band adopted the dog after the
torture incident.
It's unusual for a dog or other
animal to make an appearance be-
fore such a panel.
"I don't recall every having
one here before," said Cynthia
Dillard, executive director of the
Alabama Board of Pardons and
Paroles.
The September 2007 attack
on the dog drew wide notice.
The Montgomery Humane Soci-
ety got as many as 50 calls a day
about the case,
National some from other
News countries. The
dog was given the
name of a French fashion brand,
"Louis Vultton," in honor of a
dog named "Gucci," whose tor-
ture case in Mobile in 1994 led to
passage of "Gucci's law," which
made animal cruelty a felony in
Alabama.
More than 60 law enforcement
officers, animal rights advocates
and other supporters of Louis
crowded into the hearing. Rela-
tives and friends of Daniels also
faced the board and asked that he
be released.
Montgomery County District
Attorney Ellen Brooks asked
parole board members to make


Daniels serve his entire sentence
because of his cruelty to the dog
and the nine disciplinary actions
taken against him in prison.
"The first reason to deny pa-
role is to prevent him from hurt-
ing another animal or a person,"
Brooks said.
She said he was accused of
torturing the dog, which then be-
longed to his mother, because he
was angry at her for not letting
him use the car.
A cousin, Thomas Hudson,
said after the hearing he didn't
think it was fair because Daniels
is behind bars with "folks who
committed more extensive crimes
than he committed."
Holladay Simmons, the veteri-
narian who treated Louis imme-
diately after he was burned, told
the board the dog's wounds were
as bad as she had ever seen.
Matt Cooper, the county ani-
mal cruelty officer who responded
to the call, said after the hearing,
"I've worked cases where people
let their dog starve to death, but
this was the worst case of animal
cruelty that I've seen."
Louis stood patiently outside
the parole board offices after the
hearing as people lined up to pat
him on the head.
He nuzzled up to many of his
admirers, giving some a big, juicy
lick on the face.

NYC mayor supports mosque near WTC at Ramadan


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK - New York City Mayor Mi-
chael Bloomberg says not :ll.. i,'o a mosque
to be built near ground zero would be "com-
promising our commitment to fighting terror
with freedom."
The mayor made the comment Tuesday in
an impassioned speech at a dinner in obser-
vance of Iftar, the daily meal in which Mus-
lims break their fast during the holy month of
Ramadan.
Bloomberg says a compromise wouldn't
end the debate. He says the question would
then become "how big should the no-mosque
zone around the World Trade Center site be?"
Earlier Tuesday, Archbishop Timothy
Dolan said after a meeting with Gov. David
Paterson that New Yorkers share values of tol-
erance and unity but he's worried those values
are at risk.
Paterson wants mosque leaders to consider
an alternative location.
"We're just a little bit apprehensive that
these noble values may be a bit at risk in this
way the conversation and debate about the site
of the mosque is taking place," Dolan said.
Mosque supporters say religious freedom
should be protected.
A national survey underscored the complex
views of Americans toward the mosque proj-
ect, with 51 percent agreeing with opponents
of the Muslim center, while 34 percent said
they supported it. The poll of 1,003 randomly
chosen adults was conducted by the nonpar-
tisan Pew Research Center and showed that a
majority, 62 percent, also said Muslims have
equal rights to build houses of worship.
Dolan said both sides of the debate have
legitimate stances.
"I sure don't have strong feelings on where


the mosque should ultimately be," he said
during a brief news conference after meeting
with the governor.
They spoke about how religion can be
brought to bear on the debate over the propos-
al in an effort to encourage reconciliation and
community, rather than divisiveness, Dolan
said, and expressed willingness to be part of
the dialogue if asked.
"Do I have any concrete plans or steps?
Nope," he said.


New York Assembly Speaker Sheldon Sil-
ver, who represents the lower Manhattan dis-
trict where ground zero is, suggested Tuesday
that Islamic leaders should move the proposed
mosque. Paterson has made the same point.
Organizers have the right to build the cen-
ter at a building two blocks from ground zero
but should be open to compromise, Silver
said.
"In the spirit of living with others, they
should be cognizant of the feelings of others

and try to find a location that doesn't engen-
der the deep feelings the currently exist about
this site," Silver said.
"I think the sponsors should take into very
serious consideration the kind of turmoil
that's been created and look to compromise,"
he added.
The developer, meanwhile, was expected to
attend a dinner Tuesday night hosted by New
YorkMayor iF.1-,. 1 F1. ..1: ..., - who has spo-
ken in support of the project. Bloomberg holds
the dinner annually to observe Iftar, the daily
meal in which Muslims break their fast during
the holy month of Ramadan.
Paterson has yet to meet with anyone from
the Cordoba Initiative, the project's organizer.
Its co-founder, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, is on
a Mideast trip funded by the U.S. State De-
partment. He alluded to the controversy at
a dinner Sunday night for student leaders at
the U.S. ambassador's residence in Manama,
Bahrain.
"The fact we are getting this kind of atten-
tion is a sign of success," he said.
"It is my hope that people will understand
more. ... This is something we are doing for
your generation."
Rauf also thanked PresidentBarackObama,
who has said Muslims had the right to practice
their religion and build the Islamic center in
lower Manhattan. The president later said he
wasn't endorsing the specifics of the plan.
"I'm grateful to President Obama for his
support for the project," said Rauf.
The White House on Tuesday said that
Obama would have no further comment on
the issue and that the administration will not
get involved in talks about relocating the facil-
ity.
Republicans have vowed to make Obama's
supportive comments a campaign issue in this
fall's midterm elections.

Florida a winner in 'Race to the Top' c

The state will receive a share of about $4 billion


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MIAMI - Florida joined eight other
states and the District of Columbia Tuesday
in winning the second round in the Depart-
ment of Education's "Race to the Top" com-
petition, which has spurred a wave of edu-
cation reform across the country.
The 10 applicants have been chosen along
with two first-round winners for grants to-
taling about $4.35 billion.
Florida's education leaders stated in their
application that they want to use the funds
to double the percentage of incoming high
school freshmen who graduate and go on to
college. They also want cut the achievement
gap in half by 2015 and increase the percent-
age of students scoring at or above proficient
on the National Assessment of Education
Progress.
Florida will be awarded up to $700 mil-
lion to accomplish those goals.
"Florida's students, teachers and schools
won a great victory t ..:, " Gov. Charlie
Crist said.


Florida applied for the first round of the
competition and was named a finalist, but
only Delaware and Tennessee were given
initial grants. About $3.4 billion remained
for the second-round winners.
The other winners announced by the
Education Department Tuesday are: Geor-
gia, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Maryland, New
York, North Carolina, Ohio, Rhode Island
and Washington, D.C.
"These states show what is possible
when adults come together to do the right
thing for children," U.S. Education Secretary
Arne Duncan said. "Every state that applied
showed a tremendous amount of leader-
ship and a bold commitment to education
reform."
Florida's plan calls for making sure
teachers are well chosen, trained and held
accountable for student achievement. The
state's application said teachers will be ex-
pected to provide a "culture of rigor" for
students and work to improve their practice,
by data analysis and peer -...II :l:..1 i :.r. .,.
"With this critical funding secured we


will be able to accelerate the academic prog-
ress of our students, provide assistance to
our low-performing schools and develop
a system that properly recognizes and re-
wards our hardest working teachers," Edu-
cation Commissioner Eric Smith said.
In its first round, unions in only five
districts supported the state's application,
which linked teacher pay to student test
scores. In the second round, Gov. Char-
lie Crist pulled together a
National working group consistent of
News union, local and state school
leaders, in the end achieving
a broad consensus of support.
"This award means the outstanding col-
laboration in Florida has been recognized,"
U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor, D-Tampa, said, add-
ing that the award, coupled with S555 mil-
lion from an education jobs bill approved by
Congress, "will help our financially strug-
gling school districts offer a quality educa-
tion for Florida children."
The Race to the Top program has been
a game changer in education, with states


competition
embarking on ambitious reforms that lifted
caps on charter schools and created new
teacher evaluations in hopes of boosting
their chance of receiving funds. A majority,
including Florida, also approved adoption
of Common Core standards, the set of uni-
form reading and math benchmarks created
by a coalition of state leaders.
"Competition is something we haven't
had in the school system, in terms of com-
peting for dollars," Andy Ford, president
of the Florida Education Association, the
statewide teacher's union, said. "The fed-
eral involvement in education has been on a
formula basis, and this is a whole new way
of thinking."
Wayne Blanton, executive director of the
Florida Association of School Boards, noted
that $700 million spread out over four years
is not much in a state that spends $20 billion
a year on K-12 education.
"It will have a small economic effect and
a huge policy effect," he said.
Blanton said that there will likely be
tough negotiating in the weeks ahead, as
states complete agreements with their local
unions on the details of their plans.
"Now comes the tough part," he said.

Former Fla. governor


bashes class cap


* THE CLASS-SIZE LIMIT
WAS IMPOSED IN 2002.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SALT LAKE CITY - Former
Florida Gov. Jeb Bush told Utah of-
ficials on Tuesday that there's little
evidence to link smaller class sizes
and student achievement.
"I do not know of any research
that suggests that lower-class size
has any impact on student learning
until you get down to a significantly
lower number," Bush said. "And
the research there is very scant."
Bush made the comments about
class sizes in response to a question
by Utah Gov. Gary Herbert, who
was chairing an education meeting
Bush was invited to address.
Utah has long been home to the
nation's largest class sizes largely
because it has the nation's high-
est birth rate and spends less per
student than any other state. In the
2008-2009 school year, the most re-
cent year for which comparable
statistics were available, there were
23.7 students for every teacher,
about eight more than the national
average.
Herbert is keenly aware of that
fact as he enters his first election on
the top of the GOP ticket, with his
Democratic rival planning to make
education one of the race's key is-


sues.
In 2002, Florida voters approved
a constitutional amendment cap-
ping class sizes that Bush - who
was governor from 1999 to 2007
- vigorously opposed. Previously,
class size averages were calculated
at the schoolwide level.
The toughest requirements of the
Florida amendment goes into effect
this week.
"Every class in every school in
every district in the state has to meet
that mandate," Bush said. "You can
think of the logistical challenge ...
It's going to be a nightmare."
Bush is working to get Florida
voters to approve
State an amendment on
News this year's ballot that
would loosen the
class-size requirements.
A Harvard University study re-
leased in May said Florida's class
size amendment has had no discern-
ible effect on student achievement.
The Florida Education Associa-
tion, the statewide teachers union
which supports the amendment,
however, dismissed the study when
it came out. It said it was biased be-
cause it came from a program linked
to Bush.
Utah Superintendent Larry
Shumway said there's significant
research to show class size has the
greatest impact on minority stu-
dents.

Pet evacuation a priority in post-Katrina New Orleans


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW ORLEANS - The moment cut
sharply through the chaos, suffering and
fear of Hurricane Katrina - a small boy
sobbed hysterically as he was separated
from his dog Si'.. I:. 11 while departing the
wretched Louisiana Superdome.
Si'.. L::.ll was one of thousands of
pets split up from their owners after the
storm struck Aug. 29, 2005, and the story
triggered an outpouring of help to save
stranded animals and reunite them with
their families.
The heart-wrenching tale also spawned
new state and federal laws allowing evac-
uees to take their pets with them.
"For the first time, there was the real-
ization of the strength of the human-ani-
mal bond," said Ana Zorrilla, CEO of the
Louisiana Society for the Prevention of
Cruelty to Animals. "That sparked incred-
ible changes on state and federal levels re-
quiring that pets be included in all evacu-
ation plans."
Congress passed the Pets Evacuation
and Transportation Standards Act in 2006,
requiring plans for the evacuation of pets,
as well as people.
The act was tested in 2008 during Hur-
ricane Gustav, and it worked.
Crates for pets were placed at evacu-
ation pickup points. Animals and their
owners were banded with matching com-
puter codes, and the animals were taken to
the same locations as their owners, allow-
ing them to spend time together.
But things didn't go as smoothly three


years earlier as the dirty water rose in New
Orleans streets.
People were rescued, but countless
times they had to leave their pets behind
as helicopters plucked them from rooftops
or boats drove them to safety.
Sandra Henry, 58, floated with her
black lab, Tasha, to a rescue point where
helicopters were ferrying victims to dry
land.
Along with an 87-year-old disabled
woman and about a dozen relatives, Hen-


ry was rescued, but had to leave Tasha.
"I took Tasha home, crying all the way,"
Henry said. "I left all the food I had out
and opened the doors and windows. Leav-
ing her here was so hard, but what else
could I do?"
It took almost two years for Henry and
Tasha to be reunited. The dog had been ad-
opted and living in Colorado.
"I thought about her every day," Henry
said. "When she got home she knew me
right away."

Sandra Henry and her dog Tasha, who were reunited two years after Hurricane Ka-
trina, hang out at their home in New Orleans, Monday, Aug. 23, 2010.


It wasn't long before the poignant pic-
tures and stories of abandoned pets had
volunteer animal rescuers joining the
search for stranded people. Houses were
spray-painted with information about
bodies found and pets rescued.
The SPCA and 200 other organizations
saved more than 8,000 pets after the hur-
ricane. MuttShack, which was formed be-
cause of Katrmina, rescued more than 3,000.
SPCA supporters also donated more than
$15 million to assist animal rescue efforts
and to rebuild Gulf Coast shelters follow-
ing Hurricane Katrmina.
But some of the pets weren't so lucky.
Glenda Smith left her dogs, Max, a Jack
Russell terrier, and Zack, a Chesapeake re-
triever, at home.
Her neighbors were riding out the
storm and were to take care of them, she
said. Her dogs were rescued, but when she
got to the facility where they were being
held, only Zack was waiting.
"I can't believe after all this time it's
still so painful," Smith said. "I just hope
whoever has him loves him as much as I
do."
S'.. : I:11 was also lost.
He was taken from his family as they
scrambled through a long line for a bus
that would take them away from the heat,
stench and misery of the Superdome where
thousands of those who couldn't make it
out of the city were stranded. As the little
boy wept and called his dog's name, his fa-
ther swept him up in his arms and moved
on in the line, unwilling to sacrifice a spot
on the bus.

OIL SPILL

Federal panel hears about Halliburton's BP warning


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

HOUSTON - Federal investi-
gators probing the blowout that led
to the Gulf oil spill grilled a Halli-
burton official Tuesday about con-
cerns the petroleum services firm
raised over the potential for a severe
gas flow problem if a BP plan was
used.
i- 1: 11 I:.i . .., and BP were at odds
over a key device, known as a cen-
trahzer, that is used as part of the
process to plug a deepwater well
like the oil giant was doing at the
time of the disaster. I-.lll: 1,., r. 1.,'s
well design expert testified he told
BP officials April 15 - five days
before the well blew - that fewer
centralizers would cause a bigger
gas flow problem.
Centralizers are meant to en-
sure casing runs down the center
of the well bore. If casing strings
are cemented off-center, there is a
risk that a channel of drilling fluid
or contaminated cement will be left
where the casing contacts the oil for-
mation, creating an imperfect seal.
BP rejected I- Il, 1I, ., r. i..'s recom-
mendation to use 21 centralizers. In-
stead, BP used six centralizers.
The April 20 blowout of BP's un-
dersea well, which killed 11 work-


ers and caused 206 million gallons
of oil to spew, was triggered by a
bubble of methane gas that escaped
from the well and shot up the drill
column, expanding quickly as it
burst through several seals and bar-
riers before exploding, according to
interviews with rig workers con-
ducted during BP's internal investi-
gation and obtained by The Associ-
ated Press in May.
E-mails released by Congress in
June show that a BP engineering
official conveyed -i. 11,1I: 1.11 r. .-,'s con-
clusions to a BP well team leader
and his own concerns that BP need-
ed to install the extra centralizers.
The well team leader responded he
didn't like the idea because it would
take 10 hours to install them.
"BP then in turn decided not to
run the additional centralizers with-
out consulting me or their in-house
specialists," Jesse Gagliano, the Hal-
liburton official, told members of
the joint U.S. Coast Guard-Bureau
of Energy Management, Regula-
tion and Enforcement investigative
panel.
Tuesday's testimony was part of
the panel's fourth session of hear-
ings aimed at determining the cause
of the explosion and how regula-
tion, safety and oversight can be


improved.
After answering questions posed
by the Coast Guard and other panel
members, Gagliano was grilled by
attorneys representing some of the
other parties involved, including BE
The oil giant's attorney often took
on a sarcastic tone, repeating ques-
tions and responding with disbelief
at times to Gagliano's answers.
Gagliano was asked to read the
e-mail he received April 20, about
three hours be-
fore the well
blew out, from
I-1- II 1:1; r. ,,'s en-
gineer on board
the rig. "We have
completed the job
and it went well,"
Gagliano the rig-bound en-
gineer wrote to
Gagliano. The attorney noted the
engineer made no reference to gas
flow problems or BP's decision to
use fewer centralizers.
Pointing to another 12-page
document, prepared by Gagliano,
the attorney asked if it reflected his
"best engineering judgment and
analysis."
"No, this reflects what was actu-
ally pumped," Gagliano answered.
"No, my best engineering analysis


would have been to run 21 central-
izers."
In addition to operating the
Deepwater Horizon rig that explod-
ed, BP owned a majority interest in
the ruptured undersea well. Trans-
ocean Ltd. owned the rig. Anadarko
Petroleum held a minority interest
in the well.
The documents released in June
include a series of e-mail exchanges
between BP well team leader John
Guide and BP drilling engineering
team leader Gregory Walz. In an
April 16 e-mail, Walz said he had
located an additional 15 centralizers
in Houston and could fly them out
to the Deepwater Horizon.
Suggesting he knew he would
get some resistance, Walz added:
"I do not like or want to disrupt
your operations and I am a full be-
liever that the rig needs only one
team leader. I know the planning
has been lagging behind the opera-
tions and I have to turn that around.
I apologize if I have over step my
bounds."
Later the same day, Guide
panned the idea in part because
of the time it would take to install
the extra centralizers. "I do not like
this," Guide wrote in an e-mail to
Walz.


Nathaniel Chaisson, a Hallibur-
ton cementer who was on the rig as-
sisting with the job, said he saw the
additional centralizers on board the
rig, but BP still decided against us-
ing them.
Also Tuesday, a Transocean of-
ficial said a high-ranking employee
indicated a pressure test problem
had been resolved hours before BP's
Gulf of Mexico well blew out.
Daun Winslow told the govern-
ment panel that there was confusion
among workers in the drill shack,
who were talking before the explo-
sion about a negative pressure test,
a procedure typically done before
a well is plugged. Later in his testi-
mony, Winslow backtracked, saying
instead he would characterize what
was happening in the room as a
"discussion" rather than confusion.
Winslow said he left while the
drill team and tool pushers were
discussing the pressure test to
avoid disturbing them. He said
the highest-ranking Transocean
person on the rig later gave him a
"thumbs up," indicating it had been
resolved.
BP drilling engineer Brian Mo-
rel invoked his constitutional right
not to answer questions before the
panel Tuesday.

Veterans being counted


on to ground freshmen


By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Staff Writer
kmaistrl@allgator org

Senior offensive lineman Mike Pouncey
has some advice for Florida's highly touted
recruiting class.
And it has nothing to do with adjusting
to the speed of college football, living away
from home for the first time or better under-
standing the game.
"At the end of the day the freshmen need
to just shut their mouth and come play,"
Pouncey said. "They haven't done anything
on Saturday, and most of the fans don't even
know who they are. So, until they prove
themselves, they just need to sit back and let
the older guys play."
The Gators brought in the second-best re-
cruiting class in the nation, according to RI-
vals.com, signing four five-star and 17 four-
star players.
Three of those five-star prospects - Do-
minique Easley, Sharrif Floyd and Ronald
Powell - are defensive linemen, which has
led to plenty of expectations and hyperbole
for the group.
"Ronald Powell is Chris Bosh, Sharrif
[Floyd] is Dwyane Wade and I'm LeBron
[James]," Easley said at UF's Media Day,
drawing a comparison to the Miami Heat's
free-agent class.
Pouncey said the trio isn't as cocky as some
of the other freshmen, but Easley's quote
shows a little of bit of what concerns Urban
Meyer with the season opener less than two
weeks away.
"You have 25 young players - or whatev-
er it is - that think they're going to go domi-
nate the way they did in high school, and
they have no idea what's about to hit them,"
Meyer said.
Meyer has a reputation for playing his


best players regardless of seniority, and that
won't be any different this season.
The veteran players are counted on to
make sure the rookies understand how de-
manding a college -.. ..rl:I season can be.
"You don't want to beat up on them and
tear down their confidence, you want to help
them," redshirt senior Carl Johnson said.
"You want to show your dominance but also
be a great teammate. So I think that's one
thing veteran guys do here.
"It's kind of like a father-son lesson."
Redshirt senior linebacker A.J. Jones re-
members coming in with the 2006 recruiting
class that included Tim Tebow, Percy Harvin
and Brandon Spikes.
Jones said his class, which also included
Johnson, was just as cocky, but the older
players on the team helped humble them and
let them know that their time
� would come.
"A lot of them come in
[cocky]. A lot got to adjust fast,"
Football Jones said. "Us older guys just
try to tell them, 'We had to wait
our turn to play. It was rough
at the beginning, but just keep working hard
and everything will get better.'"
Meyer said this recruiting class might
come across more arrogant or entitled than
previous classes simply because there are so
many heralded freshmen - 25 to be exact,
after Jordan Haden and Adrian Coxson de-
cided to transfer.
Arrogance aside, having that many fresh-
men who can potentially contribute to win-
ning right away is a good problem for a head
coach.
"That's kind of standard operating proce-
dure when you get a highly recruited play-
er, but it seems like we have more of them,
which is good," Meyer said. "They'll learn to
do it."


Thomas Plevik/ Alligator Staff
UF defensive end Ronald Powell is part of this season's freshmen class, which
was ranked No. 2 in the nation by Rivals.com.


Meaningless early polls determine meaningful postseason rankings


If you flipped through Tuesday's sports section, you
saw the college football top-25 polls from each of our
four columnists.
If you read mine, you already know it better than I do.
I mailed it in. By that, I mean I told our esteemed edi-
tor, Anthony Chiang, to do it for me (he'll be writing my
papers and letting me steal his lunch this semester too).
As much as I like making Chiang do things for me, I
would rather have abstained.
I'm not qualified to rank the best 25 teams in the na-
tion. Odds are, you aren't either, nor are most of the me-
dia members in the Associated Press poll.
There are too many teams, too many players and too


many question marks about all of
them to make accurate predictions on
a wide scale. Beyond that, no teams
have played a down of football yet,
so it's all based on hype and who is
supposed to be good.
Mike McCall I know one team well enough to
McCallin' It make a guess about how its season
Like I See It will go: Florida.
mmccall@alligatororg And even with UF, I'm hardly an
expert.
Sure, I spend large parts of my day talking and writing
about the Gators, but I've yet to see them so much as run a


sprint because fall practices are closed to the media.
So how can I know how good they are until they play?
It's all speculation, and that's all preseason polls are.
That makes for some interesting debate - a large part
of the entertainment factor of sports - but here's where it
turns from me being a buzzkill to a real problem.
In college -... rl: :I, polls actually matter.
Unlike an NFL power poll, college rankings affect who
gets to play for the national championship. The USA To-
day coaches' poll, Harris poll and computer rankings all
play a part in the BCS formula.

SEE MIKE, PAGE 21


* Oregon State offensive lineman Patrick Thomas was kicked
off the team after police found him naked and intoxicated in a
stranger's home. Police used stun guns after Thomas dropped into
a three-point stance and lunged at the officers. Coach Mike Riley
was understandably disappointed in his actions, as he preaches a
four-point stance in such a scenario.


* Gators midfielder Tahnai Annis was named
the Southeastern Conference Offensive Player of
the Week. She scored two goals against UCF on
Sunday. This is the second time she has earned
the honor.


"He's like a modern-day [Cornelius
Ingram], but in smaller form. ... It's fun
watching him and seeing those little
defensive backs try to tackle someone
that big."

UF VOLLEYBALL

Brown to start at setter despite never playing position


By GREG LUCA
Alligator Writer
gluca@alligator org

When freshman setter Chanel Brown
steps onto the court for Florida's open-
ing match, she will instantly accomplish a
number of career firsts.
The first match of her collegiate career,
her first career start and her first non-club
match at a new position all figure to come
in the team's first game, and all in front of
the biggest crowd she's ever played for.
Still, Brown isn't feeling an ounce of
unwanted stress.
"I really like the pressure," Brown said.
"I just like working hard, and going to-
ward a goal of winning."
After four years of playing outside hit-
ter at Chandler (Ariz.) Valley Christian
High, Brown consulted with many of her
current and future coaches.
To maximize her potential at the next
level, Brown switched to setter.
Evidently those coaches were right. It
took Brown just a single club season and


a few weeks of practice to earn the role of
starting setter on one of the nation's top
teams.
"We thought she had a chance to see
playing time right away, but when we first
started recruiting her we didn't project her
to start as a freshman," coach Mary Wise
said. "She's doing exactly what you want
in college sports, and that's when the op-
portunity presents itself to take full advan-
tage of it."
Although Brown was a 2009 American
Volleyball Coaches Association All-Amer-
ican who led the nation in kills as an out-
side hitter, her height (5-foot-9) meant it
would be necessary to make a positional
switch if she were to successfully transi-
tion to the college game.
Wise, like many other coaches Brown
encountered during the recruiting pro-
cess, decided she would fit perfectly into
the setter role due to her foot speed and
athleticism.
"Her physical traits and leadership
skills are really tailor-made for the setting


position," Wise said. "It's not a stretch to

row defensive setter that we've had here
in this program."
Because her skills fit the position per-
fectly, Brown has been able to make the
transition with relative ease.
Even though the termi-
:-,..1.._ speedofthe game
and quality of athletes
have all presented chal-
lenges, Brown is happy
she made the move.
"It's been an amazing
Brown experience," Brown said.
"I love the transition from
outside hitter to setter, and I wouldn't
change back.
"I love running the offense, the fast
pace of everything, and being able to play
with such amazing athletes."
Brown's step up to the collegiate level
would have been a difficult one even with-
out the positional change, as she moved
from a small Arizona private school to one


of the most heavily populated public uni-
versities in the country.
After four years of playing in front of
just a few dozen fans in her high school
gymnasium, the freshman will jump to the
O'Connell Center, which drew more than
2,500 fans for last season's home opener.
"The Orange and Blue game was the
biggest crowd I've played for so far,"
Brown said. "But I'm not even nervous,
I'm just excited to go out there and play
for Gator Nation and for all the fans that
come out and support all of us."
It should come as no surprise that
Brown isn't feeling any pressure, as the
2009 Arizona State Championship MVP
once notched an astounding 26 kills and 19
digs in the biggest match of her life, lead-
ing her team to a come-from-behind vic-
tory in the championship match.
"That state game was very intense and
so much fun to be in," Brown said. "I'm
so proud of my high school team that we
came out and won state, but now it's a na-
tional championship we're looking for."

While the AP poll doesn't have a direct effect on the
BCS and the Harris poll doesn't kick in until a few weeks
into the season, preseason rankings do affect how we
judge a team's performance as the year wears on.
I don't want to turn this into another column begging
for a playoff (seriously though, please?) but I hate that the


sport's champion is partially decided by votes rather than
on the field.
A day before the AP poll came out (with UF at No. 4), a
reporter asked Florida defensive end Justin Trattou what
he thought the rankings would be.
"That means absolutely nothing because we're still go-
ing to go out and play the season," he said.
I agree completely. I just wish the polls were still mean-
ingless after the season has played out.

RECRUITING

Gators receive oral commitment from four-star recruit


By TOM GREEN
Alligator Writer
tgreen@alligator org

With the recent string of Tampa Plant High
athletes making their oral commitments in the
last two weeks, one more decided to join the
fun.
Without the flair and hoopla that came
with the announcements of schoolmates
James Wilder Jr., Phillip Ely and Tony Posada
- all - .. rl: :Ill players, four-star junior shoot-
ing guard Michael Frazier orally committed to
play for the Gators late Monday night.
According to Bob Horodyski, Frazier's
AAU coach, Frazier committed early because
he wanted to finish the recruiting process and
all the mail and phone calls that go with being
a sought-after recruit. He chose UF because of


the proximity to his family and the chance to
play for coach Billy Donovan and the program
he built.
His decision makes him Donovan's first re-
cruit for the class of 2012.
"I was a little surprised that he committed
this early," Horodyski said. "But it was prob-
ably a smart thing to do. He felt comfortable
with Billy (Donovan). ... I think he's got a
great opportunity at Florida."
Listed at 6-foot-4, Frazier is rated by Rivals.
com as the 13th-best two guard in the class of
2012.
He received offers from nearly a dozen
schools and, according to Horodyski, even
garnered attention from Duke and North Car-
olina.
As a sophomore at Plant last season, Fra-
zier averaged 26.7 points per game, while also


pulling down almost eight boards per contest.
After scoring 695 points last year, Frazier be-
came the first sophomore m I-, 111: .,.- _'. lI
County history to surpass the 1,000 career
points mark.
"He's probably one of the best shooters I've
ever coached," Horodyski
said. "He's got deep range,
and not only can he shoot
open jump shots, but he can
rise and shoot over people
... with pretty good accu-
racy. He's a marksman, no
doubt about it. He can flat

Horodyski said Frazier's
shooting touch reminds him of former UF
guard Kenyan Weaks. During his four sea-
sons at UF, Weaks shot nearly 43 percent from


beyond the arc, making him one of the most
prolific shooters in school history.
While Horodyski heaped praise on Fra-
zier's offensive game, adding that he is ad-
ept at attacking the basket and finishing well
with both hands, he said the 180-pound guard
needs to work on his defense and ball-han-
dling skills.
However, he still has two seasons to perfect
those facets of his game 1:. .. .. .- . .-.111 .' at UF,

Dolphins to rely on pair of second-year cornerbacks


* MIAMI RANKED LAST IN YARDS ALLOWED PER
PASS LAST SEASON.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DAVIE - Miami Dolphins cornerback Sean Smith started
all 16 games as a rookie and broke up a dozen passes but failed
to catch any. His interception total: zero.
Did he find it frustrating to be shut out? Embarrassing?
Shocking?
"I'm going to go with all of the above," Smith said. "It took
awhile for me to get over it."


Such are the growing pains for a young cornerback, whose
every misstep can become fodder for highlight shows. The Dol-
phins had rookies at both cornerback spots last year, one rea-
son they ranked last in the league in yards allowed per pass.
Smith and Vontae Davis are back for a second
season, looking to make more plays and fewer
mistakes. Their anticipated improvement would
help solidify a Miami defense revamped after a
disappointmhng 2009 season.
"If those two guys compete every play like we
know they can, we'll be a very good defense," strong safety
Yeremiah Bell says. "If they clamp down, it means more sacks
for the d-line and more interceptions for the safeties and line-


backers. It makes life so much easier."
The Dolphins made the two young cornerbacks their top
draft choices in 2009 with the expectation the team would be
set at the position for years.
Davis joined Smith in the starting lineup in October as a
replacement for veteran Will Allen, who underwent season-
ending knee surgery.
"When we first came in, everybody was comparing us to
Surtain and Madison," Smith says. "Those are real big shoes.
And when you give up a touchdown, and the crowd is on your
back and yelling things, it would be easy for a guy to tank it.
"Even the best get beat. We understand that. You have to be
the most arrogant guys on the field sometimes."

Columnist Predictions


Brantley will be Heisman runner-up


Florida is coming into the season with
more questions than answers, but I'm
about to fix that.
The Gators are going to lose one game
in the regular season and it won't be
against Alabama. They will rout Miami
(Ohio) and interstate "rival" USF before
getting into the meat of their schedule.
Next, they will go on the road to play
Tennessee, but UF will blow that one open
in the second half. The Vols are throwing
out junior college transfer Matt Simms
to be their quarterback - no, that's not a
good thing for Tennessee.
UF's next game will be dedicated to Tim
Tebow as it goes up against Kentucky, the
team that gave him the concussion. If that
wasn't enough to motivate the Gators to
a blowout victory, they are facing a coach
named Joker.
These first four games will be crucial
to quarterback John Brantley's success. By
this time he will have cemented his name
in the Heisman Trophy race, amassing
1,100 passing yards and 10 touchdown
passes.
But his next game will be the true test.
Alabama will be close, but UF will win
this one. The Crimson Tide won't be as
strong as analysts predict. It loses eight
of its 11 starters on defense and Florida
will expose that as Brantley continues his
surge to prominence with 275 yards pass-
ing in the contest.
At this point, the Gators will be ranked


No. 2. They will turn
that momentum into
a close win over LSU
before slipping up
against Mississippi
Anthony Chiang State in their home-
coming game.
Chiang Reaction I know it sounds
achia ng@alligator org
Twitter @Chiang_Reaction crazy, but Florida
has fallen to a team
from the Southeast-
ern Conference West in each of the last 11
seasons, and former Gators offensive co-
ordinator Dan Mullen will come up with
a great game plan to baffle the Gators de-
fense.
UF will blow through its next four
games before making the trip up to Tal-
lahassee to earn a hard-fought victory
against FSU.
That will bring the Gators to the re-
match everybody will be waiting for -
UF and Alabama in the SEC Champion-
ship Game.
The Crimson Tide will take this one,
which will leave Florida playing in the
Sugar Bowl for a second straight year.
Brantley will end the season with at
least 3,500 passing yards and 40 touch-
downs through the air - just enough
to make fans forget about their beloved
Tebow for a year.
UF will finish second in the SEC stand-
ings, and Brantley will be the runner up
for the Heisman Trophy.


Freshmen to make impact on D


ince the Sugar Bowl in January, al-
most all talk concerning Florida has
surrounded new quarterback John
Brantley. But the Gators face a more press-
ing issue than replacing Tim Tebow. The
team lost two linebackers, two defensive
ends, two defensive backs and the coordi-
nator from a unit that held opponents to
12.4 points per game.
Up front, the Gators have plenty of
options, including several backups from
last year's team. But, on paper, no play-
ers have excited fans more than freshmen
Ronald .. . II, Dominique Easley and
Sharrif Floyd. The super trio - along with
Chris Martin, a California signee who
transferred to Florida on July 20 - was
christened by some recruiting analysts as
"The Greatest Defensive Line Class Ever
(or until our hyperbole gets out of control
again next year)."
Coach Urban Meyer has tried to curb
fans' enthusiasm since training camp
opened, calling his freshman class "an OK
group" and saying Powell in particular
has not played well enough to earn mean-
ingful minutes this season.
But Rivals.com listed - .. II as the No.
1 overall recruit in the nation for a reason,
so expect the defensive end to adapt to
whatever problems are holding him back.
He's 248 pounds and ran a 4.52-forty at
some high school combines. He returned
a blocked kick for a touchdown and also
caught one in the U.S. Army All-American
Bowl. High school pictures revealed he

He will start by

da plays Tennessee.
Also expect to
see a lot of first-year
safety Matt Elam,
the brother of Cleve-
land Browns safety
Abram Elam and
the No. 2 recruit at


his position, according to Rivals. Meyer
said Elam reported to the team "doughy"
this summer but got back in shape before
camp started.
Elam will stay behind Ahmad Black
and Will Hill on the depth chart, but he
should see the field in the "Magic" pack-
age, which is just the 2010 version of the
"Joker" package.
But even with both those players
emerging, the defense will not post num-
bers similar to last season. Excluding the
Southeastern Conference Championship
Game, the 2009 unit was special, and re-
placing Joe Haden, Brandon Spikes and
Ryan Stamper will be tough.
Speaking of that one misstep, forget
the Alabama game this season. You know
it will be hyped, but the more important
matchup will be against a Georgia team
hungry to bounce back after a couple bad
years.
When the Gators win their third straight
meeting against the Bulldogs, Florida will
face Alabama for a second time in 2010.


Henry will win Ray Guy Award


It all seemed so preordained a season
ago. The Gators would play in the South-
eastern Championship Game and a BCS
bowl game, and Timmy would end his sea-
son in New York, pushing for another Heis-
man Trophy.
Not everyone saw the season going
the exact same way, but those three
things were almost givens from the
very beginning.
This year, nothing is a given.
Except for wins against Miami (Ohio),
USF and Appalachian State. Although, I'm
sure Michigan said the same thing before
becoming the victim of the biggest upset
in college :. .. rl:, II history.
Florida has enough talent to contend
for another national championship, but
many of the players that will be relied
upon are inexperienced.
John Brantley has never started a game,
Deonte Thompson is the only wide receiv-
er or tight end with more than 14 career
receptions and the defense is replacing six
starters.
Looking at the home schedule, I don't
see the Gators losing more than once in
The Swamp. If they do drop a home game,
I think the Nov. 13 matchup with South
Carolina will be the one.
The road schedule is a different story.
Traveling to Tuscaloosa to play Alabama
looks like a loss on paper, but I wouldn't
put it past UF to pull an upset. Not that
I'm predicting that to happen.
Games against Georgia in Jacksonville
and Florida State in Tallahassee won't be


easy, but I don't ex-
pect Florida to lose
more than one of
those.
So, I'll put the
team at 10-2, which

Atlanta with a loss, landing the Gators in
the Sugar Bowl for the second consecutive
season, and giving me another week in
New Orleans.
Individually, I like wide receiver
Omarius Hines, running back Mike Gil-
lislee and defensive end Justin Trattou to
have breakout years to varying degrees -
First Team All-SEC would be a breakout
year for Trattou, while a 600-yard season
would qualify the same for Hines or Gil-
lislee.
Brantley will be as good as advertised,
meaning the bulk of the team's yardage
comes through the air and not on the
ground. I don't see him hoisting a bronze
statue at the end of the season, though.
The previous 350 or so words are just
one person's best guess at what to expect
out of this season, but I will leave you with
one thing I know for sure: Punter Chas
Henry will be better as his position than
any other Gator at his respective position.
The Ray Guy Award seems inevitable.


UF to lose to 'Cocks, 'Noles


lorida will go 11-3, finishing 2010 with
a repeat of last year's SEC Champion-

In the words of Vicky Valencourt:
"That ain't no guess! That's what it's
gonna be."
Of course, that's probably wrong, but
here's how I see the season going.
Florida will pummel poor, defense-
less Miami (Ohio) and pull away late in
the second half against USF and wonder-
coach Skip Holtz.
Tennessee and Kentucky aren't good,
so that should give the Gators time to
work out all their position battles and get
quarterback John Brantley some experi-
ence before The Game in Tuscaloosa.
Check this out: they're going to beat
the Crimson Tide. UF is going to show up
big-time for that one while 'Bama comes
in after a tough road game at Arkansas.
It'll come down to a few key plays, and
Florida will make them.

Alabama will be devastating.

The band Hootie & the Blowfish,
which formed at USC, will reunite and
write a song about it. Spurrier will say
something funny after the game.
If you're keeping score at home, you've
noticed I have UF losing one more regular


season game, which
means...
FSU will beat
Florida.

The Gators still get into the SEC Cham-

the rematch and UF goes back to the Sug-

I do lots of drinking on Bourbon Street
and sing karaoke at Cats Meow (Tim

The Sugar Bowl doesn't really matter,
but Florida will probably clown some

All in all, I'd consider that a solid sea-

ers as the Gators did, but I'm sure the idea
of losing to the 'Noles is vomit-inducing
for most of you.
Those are 26 predictions for this year,

to be true: UF will beat Miami (Ohio), and
Spurrier will say something really, really

Role of backup QBs takes form


By TYLER JETT
Alligator Staff Writer
tjett@alligator org

Gators fans have known for more than a year
who would start at quarterback in 2010.
But the pecking order after John Brantley was
murky until Monday, when coach Urban Meyer
said Tyler Murphy is taking snaps with the sec-
ond-team offense while Trey Burton has been
used in the wildcat position. Both backups are
true freshmen.
Florida surprised some fans by offering Mur-
phy a scholarship in January, as the Wethersfield,
Conn., product was previously committed to
Temple, a team in the Mid-American Conference
with just one winning season since 1991.
Meyer said he thinks Murphy has the potential
to be a good quarterback but admitted the team
has a problem with two inexperienced players
waiting behind Brantley, a problem that would be
amplified should the starter get injured this sea-
son.
"There's a question about how long [Murphy
has] been playing quarterback," Meyer said. "He's
got a great arm and he's a pretty mature kid, but
he's just not experienced. This is all new to him."
Giving Murphy the nod at quarterback was not
necessarily a slight to Burton, who could be used
in several positions this season.
In addition to fielding snaps, Burton has lined
up at the flexback position and Meyer even hinted
at making him the lead blocker on kick returns
this season.
"He's a total ball player," offensive coordina-
tor Steve Addazio said. "He lines up, he's taking
snaps, direct runs... he's powerful, he's smart,
he's a really good athlete, he has great hands. I


would say that's been really fun to watch develop
here over the last five, six days."
Tight ends coach Brian White added he is im-
pressed with Burton's ability to adapt to new po-
sitions.
"He's a really unselfish .-, " White said. "He
wants to help this football team win in whatev-
er role coach Addazio, coach Meyer devise for
him."
Offensive line shakeup: Senior Mike Pouncey
said there is a good chance he will play tackle ear-
ly this season as Xavier Nixon and Matt Patchan
recover from injuries. Pouncey expected to replace
his brother, Maurkice, at center this season.
"I feel like I'm a great player wherever I
play at, and I just want to win."
Mike Pouncey
UF offensive lineman

Nixon suffered a left knee injury while Patchan
is rehabbing from a broken right wrist. The pair
was competing for the starting left tackle posi-
tion.
Patchan has returned to practice but was held
out of contract drills, Meyer said Monday.
If neither player is ready by the season open-
er Sept. 4, Pouncey said he would move to right
tackle. Marcus Gilbert, expected to play on the
right side, would switch to left tackle, and sopho-
more Sam Robey would play center.
UF offensive linemen practice multiple posi-
tions in the preseason to accommodate for injured
starters once games begin, and Pouncey said he
doesn't mind switching positions.
"I feel like I'm a great player wherever I play
at," he said, "and I just want to win."

Coaches want to use freshman Trey Burton all over the field this season.

The newest sisters received their bid cards at the Reitz Union, which told them which house they’d been welcomed into. They then came rushing in little groups toward the houses, passing through Norman Tunnel, around Eighth Street. The crowd was divided. The sorority sisters stood clumped in colorful groups in front of their respective houses on the east side of the street. Meanwhile, hundreds of men stood watching across the way to cheer on the running sorority hopefuls and boo those who only walked. Each group of girls was decked out in their own house colors and silly hats. The Delta Gamma girls wore sailor caps, and the Alpha Epsilon Phi ho wore similar green and white ones. Though the sisters themselves declined to comment on the excitement of the day, the bystanders were more than happy to share their sentiments. “This is the most hot girls you’re ever going to see in one place, at one time,” said UF freshman Luke Epstein, who watched Tuesday’s event. In the great fervor of running, hugging, kissing, picture taking and in car mirrors, there was plenty to gawk at.

The move was done to reduce paper waste and create a more “environmentally friendly business,” according to Thomas Bean, who owns and manages the company. The business was using as many as 10,000 sheets of paper a month printing notes, Bean said. “It was just ludicrous how much paper we were wasting and throwing away,” he said. The store has been transitioning into paperless operation for the past couple of years, Bean said. The business started printing doublesided pages in the fall of 2008 and started offering discounts on future purchases to those who brought back their study kits to the store to recycle. Eventually, Bean said, he hopes to take the effort to reduce waste a step further by publishing all advertisements and coupons exclusively through Facebook and Twitter. “Why even have a cash register?” Bean said.

The pieces come everywhere from central Asia to China, Tibet, Korea, Japan and down into southeast Asia. He said the works also come from all throughout history. Some originate from several thousand years B.C., while others originate from the contemporary era. He said that Chinese jades from the Ming and Qing dynasties, which stretched from the 1300s to the 1900s, were an example of the works that Cofrin left to the museum. Cofrin’s donation, along with the museum’s existing Asian art collection, will eventually be moved into the 26,000-square-foot David A. Cofrin Asian Art Wing, which will open its doors in 2012. Prior to his death, Cofrin donated $10 million to the construction of this wing. With the new donation and the new section to house, the current 130-piece Asian art collection will triple in size, he said. Three new galleries will be featured in the wing along with the existing gallery, he said. Though Cofrin’s name will forever be attached to the new wing, his philanthropy was not strictly devoted to Asian art. “He also assisted in acquisitions in the contemporary, the modern and the photography collection,” Wroath said. The 312 works Cofrin donated to the museum are worth an estimated $4.2 million. Wroath said that over the course of his life, he donated more than $30 million to the museum. “I think he believed in the mission of getting Gainesville an exceptional art museum,” Steuber said. “As well as, I for the arts on campus ...

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 25, 2010 ALLIGATOR, 7With the economy the way it is, most students would jump at the chance to earn some money while looking for a full-time job. That’s why many college students would jump at the chance to become a mystery shopper. All you have to do is make a particular purchase in a store or restaurant, and then evaluate their experience. Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, it just might be. Recently, the Federal Trade Commission has noticed that mystery shopping companies may be targeting undergraduate students and recent grads with bogus job opportunities.The scam starts out sounding legitimate. People answer an e-mail or advertisement looking for part-time work. The scammer tells you that they need mystery shoppers. You can shop in your own time and collect a fee. If you’ve never been a mystery shopper, the next part won’t strike you as strange: the company is going to send you a check to use to buy the small items you need to purchase to appropriately rate a retailer. Legitimate mystery shopping companies do not do that. They form and the pay is a very modest amount. ing to be for a lot of money — likely $3,000 to $5,000 — which is vastly more than you need. The con-artist’s excuse for sending so much money is that they want you to take your fee out of the check, plus the cost of whatever you’re buying. And then, they want you to wire the rest of the money in order to supposedly evaluate a bank or wire service. They suggest you wait until the check clears to send them the money. The check then bounces after the person wires the money, leaving the shopper liable for the fake check. People who apply for the secret shopper or mystery shopper jobs are told by the company that they have only 48 hours to complete the assignment or they will lose the job. Arizona’s Attorney General says, “Consumers need to know that a legitimate company will never send you a cashier’s check out of the blue or require you to send money to someone you have never met. The scam artists use realistic looking documents, the ‘secret’ nature of the job, and the 48-hour deadline to pressure consumers into cashing the check and wiring the money quickly before the bank or the consumer can determine it was a fake check. By then, it’s too late.” So if a mystery shopper program asks you to pay an upfront fee to become an employee or deposit a check from someone you don’t know and then wire money back, walk away immediately. consumer issues, visit ftc.gov or call toll-free, 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357).

8, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 25, 2010AP PhotoLouis Vuitton, a pit bull, leaves an Alabama Board of Pardons and Paroles hearing in Montgomery, Ala., Aug. 24. NATIONALTHE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK — New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg says not allowing a mosque to be built near ground zero would be “comwith freedom.” The mayor made the comment Tuesday in an impassioned speech at a dinner in obser vance of Iftar, the daily meal in which Muslims break their fast during the holy month of Ramadan. Bloomberg says a compromise wouldn’t end the debate. He says the question would then become “how big should the no-mosque zone around the World Trade Center site be?” Earlier Tuesday, Archbishop Timothy Dolan said after a meeting with Gov. David Paterson that New Yorkers share values of tolerance and unity but he’s worried those values are at risk. Paterson wants mosque leaders to consider an alternative location. “We’re just a little bit apprehensive that these noble values may be a bit at risk in this way the conversation and debate about the site of the mosque is taking place,” Dolan said. Mosque supporters say religious freedom should be protected. A national survey underscored the complex views of Americans toward the mosque project, with 51 percent agreeing with opponents of the Muslim center, while 34 percent said they supported it. The poll of 1,003 randomly chosen adults was conducted by the nonpar tisan Pew Research Center and showed that a majority, 62 percent, also said Muslims have equal rights to build houses of worship. Dolan said both sides of the debate have legitimate stances. “I sure don’t have strong feelings on where the mosque should ultimately be,” he said during a brief news conference after meeting with the governor. They spoke about how religion can be brought to bear on the debate over the proposal in an effort to encourage reconciliation and community, rather than divisiveness, Dolan said, and expressed willingness to be part of the dialogue if asked. “Do I have any concrete plans or steps? Nope,” he said. New York Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, who represents the lower Manhattan district where ground zero is, suggested Tuesday that Islamic leaders should move the proposed mosque. Paterson has made the same point. Organizers have the right to build the center at a building two blocks from ground zero but should be open to compromise, Silver said. “In the spirit of living with others, they should be cognizant of the feelings of others der the deep feelings the currently exist about this site,” Silver said. “I think the sponsors should take into very serious consideration the kind of turmoil that’s been created and look to compromise,” he added. The developer, meanwhile, was expected to attend a dinner Tuesday night hosted by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who has spoken in support of the project. Bloomberg holds the dinner annually to observe Iftar, the daily meal in which Muslims break their fast during the holy month of Ramadan. Paterson has yet to meet with anyone from the Cordoba Initiative, the project’s organizer. Its co-founder, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, is on a Mideast trip funded by the U.S. State Department. He alluded to the controversy at a dinner Sunday night for student leaders at the U.S. ambassador’s residence in Manama, Bahrain. “The fact we are getting this kind of attention is a sign of success,” he said. “It is my hope that people will understand more. ... This is something we are doing for your generation.” Rauf also thanked President Barack Obama, who has said Muslims had the right to practice their religion and build the Islamic center in lower Manhattan. The president later said he “I’m grateful to President Obama for his support for the project,” said Rauf. The White House on Tuesday said that Obama would have no further comment on the issue and that the administration will not get involved in talks about relocating the facility. Republicans have vowed to make Obama’s supportive comments a campaign issue in this fall’s midterm elections.NYC mayor supports mosque near WTC at Ramadan AP PhotoDemonstrators in favor of the proposed Islamic center near ground zero make their feelings about the emotionally charged subject known in Manhattan on Sunday. THE PIT BULL WAS BURNED AND BEATEN.THE ASSOCIATED PRESSMONTGOMERY, Ala. — A scarred but friendly pit bull named “Louis Vuitton” was the star witness Tuesday as an Alabama state board denied parole for the man convicted of spraya shovel. After the 8-year-old dog was led into the packed hearing room, the Alabama Board of Pardons and Paroles voted 3-0 to deny early release to 23-year-old Juan Daniels of Montgomery, who was sentenced in 2009 to nine years and six months in prison, a record in Alabama in an animal cruelty case. Daniels, whose supporters said he had been sentenced far more harshly than criminals who harm human beings, will be eligible for parole again in July 2012. The dog stuck his head forward for everyone who wanted to pet him as he entered. He bears burn scars from his head to his wagging tail, including white lines on his brown body where the burn“You have to see the scars to see what was done to him,” said the dog’s owner, Dee Hartley of Montgomery. She and her husband adopted the dog after the torture incident. It’s unusual for a dog or other animal to make an appearance before such a panel. “I don’t recall every having one here before,” said Cynthia Dillard, executive director of the Alabama Board of Pardons and Paroles. The September 2007 attack on the dog drew wide notice. The Montgomery Humane Society got as many as 50 calls a day about the case, some from other countries. The dog was given the name of a French fashion brand, “Louis Vuitton,” in honor of a dog named “Gucci,” whose tor ture case in Mobile in 1994 led to passage of “Gucci’s law,” which made animal cruelty a felony in Alabama. More than 60 law enforcement and other supporters of Louis crowded into the hearing. Relatives and friends of Daniels also faced the board and asked that he be released. Montgomery County District Attorney Ellen Brooks asked parole board members to make Daniels serve his entire sentence because of his cruelty to the dog and the nine disciplinary actions taken against him in prison. role is to prevent him from hurting another animal or a person,” Brooks said. She said he was accused of torturing the dog, which then belonged to his mother, because he was angry at her for not letting him use the car. A cousin, Thomas Hudson, said after the hearing he didn’t think it was fair because Daniels is behind bars with “folks who committed more extensive crimes than he committed.” Holladay Simmons, the veterinarian who treated Louis immediately after he was burned, told the board the dog’s wounds were as bad as she had ever seen. Matt Cooper, the county anito the call, said after the hearing, “I’ve worked cases where people let their dog starve to death, but this was the worst case of animal cruelty that I’ve seen.” Louis stood patiently outside hearing as people lined up to pat him on the head. He nuzzled up to many of his admirers, giving some a big, juicy lick on the face.No parole for convicted dog torturer; victim wags tail Ne ws National

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 25, 2010 ALLIGATOR, 9 THE ASSOCIATED PRESSMIAMI — Florida joined eight other states and the District of Columbia Tuesday in winning the second round in the Department of Education’s “Race to the Top” competition, which has spurred a wave of education reform across the country. The 10 applicants have been chosen along taling about $4.35 billion. Florida’s education leaders stated in their application that they want to use the funds to double the percentage of incoming high school freshmen who graduate and go on to college. They also want cut the achievement gap in half by 2015 and increase the percenton the National Assessment of Education Progress. Florida will be awarded up to $700 million to accomplish those goals. “Florida’s students, teachers and schools won a great victory today,” Gov. Charlie Crist said. only Delaware and Tennessee were given initial grants. About $3.4 billion remained for the second-round winners. The other winners announced by the Education Department Tuesday are: Geor gia, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Maryland, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Rhode Island and Washington, D.C. “These states show what is possible when adults come together to do the right thing for children,” U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan said. “Every state that applied showed a tremendous amount of leader ship and a bold commitment to education reform.” Florida’s plan calls for making sure teachers are well chosen, trained and held accountable for student achievement. The state’s application said teachers will be expected to provide a “culture of rigor” for students and work to improve their practice, by data analysis and peer collaboration. “With this critical funding secured we will be able to accelerate the academic progress of our students, provide assistance to our low-performing schools and develop a system that properly recognizes and rewards our hardest working teachers,” Education Commissioner Eric Smith said. districts supported the state’s application, which linked teacher pay to student test scores. In the second round, Gov. Char lie Crist pulled together a working group consistent of union, local and state school leaders, in the end achieving a broad consensus of support. “This award means the outstanding collaboration in Florida has been recognized,” U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor, D-Tampa, said, adding that the award, coupled with $555 million from an education jobs bill approved by gling school districts offer a quality education for Florida children.” The Race to the Top program has been a game changer in education, with states embarking on ambitious reforms that lifted caps on charter schools and created new teacher evaluations in hopes of boosting their chance of receiving funds. A majority, including Florida, also approved adoption of Common Core standards, the set of uniform reading and math benchmarks created by a coalition of state leaders. “Competition is something we haven’t had in the school system, in terms of competing for dollars,” Andy Ford, president of the Florida Education Association, the statewide teacher’s union, said. “The federal involvement in education has been on a formula basis, and this is a whole new way of thinking.” Wayne Blanton, executive director of the Florida Association of School Boards, noted that $700 million spread out over four years is not much in a state that spends $20 billion a year on K-12 education. “It will have a small economic effect and a huge policy effect,” he said. Blanton said that there will likely be tough negotiating in the weeks ahead, as states complete agreements with their local unions on the details of their plans. “Now comes the tough part,” he said.Florida a winner in ‘Race to the Top’ competition Ne ws National The state will receive a share of about $4 billion

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW ORLEANS — The moment cut sharply through the chaos, suffering and fear of Hurricane Katrina — a small boy sobbed hysterically as he was separated from his dog Snowball while departing the wretched Louisiana Superdome. Snowball was one of thousands of pets split up from their owners after the storm struck Aug. 29, 2005, and the story triggered an outpouring of help to save stranded animals and reunite them with their families. The heart-wrenching tale also spawned new state and federal laws allowing evacuees to take their pets with them. ization of the strength of the human-animal bond,” said Ana Zorrilla, CEO of the Louisiana Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. “That sparked incredible changes on state and federal levels requiring that pets be included in all evacuation plans.” Congress passed the Pets Evacuation and Transportation Standards Act in 2006, requiring plans for the evacuation of pets, as well as people. The act was tested in 2008 during Hur ricane Gustav, and it worked. Crates for pets were placed at evacuation pickup points. Animals and their owners were banded with matching computer codes, and the animals were taken to the same locations as their owners, allowing them to spend time together. But things didn’t go as smoothly three years earlier as the dirty water rose in New Orleans streets. People were rescued, but countless times they had to leave their pets behind as helicopters plucked them from rooftops or boats drove them to safety. black lab, Tasha, to a rescue point where helicopters were ferrying victims to dry land. Along with an 87-year-old disabled woman and about a dozen relatives, Henry was rescued, but had to leave Tasha. “I took Tasha home, crying all the way,” Henry said. “I left all the food I had out and opened the doors and windows. Leaving her here was so hard, but what else could I do?” It took almost two years for Henry and Tasha to be reunited. The dog had been adopted and living in Colorado. “I thought about her every day,” Henry said. “When she got home she knew me right away.” It wasn’t long before the poignant pictures and stories of abandoned pets had volunteer animal rescuers joining the search for stranded people. Houses were spray-painted with information about bodies found and pets rescued. The SPCA and 200 other organizations saved more than 8,000 pets after the hur ricane. MuttShack, which was formed because of Katrina, rescued more than 3,000. SPCA supporters also donated more than $15 million to assist animal rescue efforts and to rebuild Gulf Coast shelters following Hurricane Katrina. But some of the pets weren’t so lucky. Glenda Smith left her dogs, Max, a Jack Russell terrier, and Zack, a Chesapeake retriever, at home. Her neighbors were riding out the storm and were to take care of them, she said. Her dogs were rescued, but when she got to the facility where they were being held, only Zack was waiting. “I can’t believe after all this time it’s still so painful,” Smith said. “I just hope whoever has him loves him as much as I do.” Snowball was also lost. He was taken from his family as they scrambled through a long line for a bus that would take them away from the heat, stench and misery of the Superdome where thousands of those who couldn’t make it out of the city were stranded. As the little boy wept and called his dog’s name, his father swept him up in his arms and moved on the bus.

Jeb Bush told Utah ofevidence to link smaller class sizes and student achievement. “I do not know of any research that suggests that lower-class size has any impact on student learning lower number,” Bush said. “And the research there is very scant.” Bush made the comments about class sizes in response to a question by Utah Gov. Gary Herbert, who was chairing an education meeting Bush was invited to address. Utah has long been home to the nation’s largest class sizes largely because it has the nation’s highest birth rate and spends less per student than any other state. In the 2008-2009 school year, the most recent year for which comparable statistics were available, there were 23.7 students for every teacher, about eight more than the national average. Herbert is keenly aware of that the top of the GOP ticket, with his Democratic rival planning to make education one of the race’s key issues. In 2002, Florida voters approved a constitutional amendment capping class sizes that Bush — who was governor from 1999 to 2007 — vigorously opposed. Previously, class size averages were calculated at the schoolwide level. The toughest requirements of the Florida amendment goes into effect this week. “Every class in every school in every district in the state has to meet that mandate,” Bush said. “You can think of the logistical challenge. ... It’s going to be a nightmare.” Bush is working to get Florida voters to approve an amendment on this year’s ballot that would loosen the class-size requirements. A Harvard University study released in May said Florida’s class size amendment has had no discernible effect on student achievement. The Florida Education Association, the statewide teachers union which supports the amendment, however, dismissed the study when it came out. It said it was biased because it came from a program linked to Bush.

SportsWEDNESDAY, AUGUST 25, 2010 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org By KYLE MAISTRIAlligator Staff Writerkmaistri@alligator.orgSenior offensive lineman Mike Pouncey has some advice for Florida’s highly touted recruiting class. And it has nothing to do with adjusting to the speed of college football, living away standing the game. “At the end of the day the freshmen need to just shut their mouth and come play,” Pouncey said. “They haven’t done anything on Saturday, and most of the fans don’t even know who they are. So, until they prove themselves, they just need to sit back and let the older guys play.” The Gators brought in the second-best recruiting class in the nation, according to Ristar players. minique Easley, Sharrif Floyd and Ronald led to plenty of expectations and hyperbole for the group. “Ronald Powell is Chris Bosh, Sharrif drawing a comparison to the Miami Heat’s free-agent class. Pouncey said the trio isn’t as cocky as some of the other freshmen, but Easley’s quote shows a little of bit of what concerns Urban Meyer with the season opener less than two weeks away. nate the way they did in high school, and they have no idea what’s about to hit them,” Meyer said. Meyer has a reputation for playing his best players regardless of seniority, and that won’t be any different this season. The veteran players are counted on to make sure the rookies understand how demanding a college football season can be. “You don’t want to beat up on them and them,” redshirt senior Carl Johnson said. “You want to show your dominance but also thing veteran guys do here. Redshirt senior linebacker A.J. Jones remembers coming in with the 2006 recruiting class that included Tim Tebow, Percy Harvin and Brandon Spikes. Jones said his class, which also included Johnson, was just as cocky, but the older players on the team helped humble them and let them know that their time would come. “A lot of them come in [cocky]. A lot got to adjust fast,” Jones said. “Us older guys just at the beginning, but just keep working hard and everything will get better.’” Meyer said this recruiting class might come across more arrogant or entitled than previous classes simply because there are so after Jordan Haden and Adrian Coxson decided to transfer. Arrogance aside, having that many freshmen who can potentially contribute to winning right away is a good problem for a head coach. “That’s kind of standard operating procedure when you get a highly recruited player, but it seems like we have more of them, which is good,” Meyer said. “They’ll learn to do it.” QUOTABLE UF SOCCER TEEING OFF WITH KYLE MAISTRIThomas Plevik / Alligator StaffUF defensive end Ronald Powell is part of this season’s freshmen class, which was ranked No. 2 in the nation by Rivals.com.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESSNEW YORK — Bobby Bowden did not want to retire. “Fired might be a little too strong,” the former Florida State coach said Tuesday in an inter view with The Associated Press. “Pushed out ain’t bad. I was pushed out, no doubt about it. I didn’t want but one more year. Gosh, I’m 80.” The coach doesn’t act bitter, but he wants to make sure the record is straight. “I didn’t want them to spread the story that I voluntarily, happily resigned,” said Bowden, who was in New York to begin a promotional tour for his new book, “Called to Coach.” The affable Alabama native rolled up 389 victories (though 12 were vacated by the NCAA), second behind Joe Paterno in major college football in a 44year head coaching career. But Florida State went 38-28 board of trustees and then-university president T.K. Wetherell thought after last season it was time for a change. Bowden said Wetherell presented him with two alternatives. “Number one, you can stay as ambassador coach. I don’t think I’ve ever heard of an ambassador coach in my life. I said, ‘Well, what is an ambassador coach?’ “He said, ‘Well, you can remain the head coach but you Now how can I be the head coach of this team if I can’t go that’s out.’ “So I said, ‘What’s the next alternative?’ The next alternative, we ain’t going to renew your contract,” Bowden said with a big laugh. “Does that sound like I resigned?” When Bowden was an assistant coach at Florida State in the 1960s, he coached Wetherell and got to know his family. “He and I were pretty close,” Bowden said. “I thought I was safe.” Bowden said his relationship with Wetherell has likely been irreparably damaged. “I doubt if I’ll have a relationship with T.K. anymore,” he said. Wetherell acknowledged that ultimately it was his decision to remove Bowden and let Jimbo Fisher, who had already been designated Bowden’s successor, take over in 2010. “Of course I made the decision, who else could have?” Wetherell told the AP. While Bowden was not allowed to end his career on his own terms, he insists he doesn’t miss coaching. “I love Florida State,” he said. “I’ll be pulling for them. I’ll be pulling for Jimbo. I didn’t want to sit there and be looking over his shoulder. “People have to make the transition from me to him.” WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 25, 2010 ALLIGATOR, 21 Coaches don’t have nearly enough time to watch every team around the country (not to mention they have their own agendas), computers can’t watch football games, and I’ve heard enough press-box chatter during the last three years to know that media votes are often made without much research. In politics, we have a law mandating that candidates have the opportunity for equal airtime on radio and television. That doesn’t exist in college football. While the AP poll doesn’t have a direct effect on the BCS and the Harris poll doesn’t kick in until a few weeks into the season, preseason rankings do affect how we judge a team’s performance as the year wears on. I don’t want to turn this into another column begging for a playoff (seriously though, please?) but I hate that the sport’s champion is partially decided by votes rather than A day before the AP poll came out (with UF at No. 4), a reporter asked Florida defensive end Justin Trattou what he thought the rankings would be. “That means absolutely nothing because we’re still going to go out and play the season,” he said. I agree completely. I just wish the polls were still meaningless after the season has played out. MIKE, from page 20Harrison Diamond / Alligator StaffFormer Seminoles coach Bobby Bowden racked up 389 wins in a 44-year head coaching career, but went just Bowden: ‘I was pushed out, no doubt about it’UF VOLLEYBALLBy GREG LUCAAlligator Writergluca@alligator.orgWhen freshman setter Chanel Brown steps onto the court for Florida’s opening match, she will instantly accomplish a the biggest crowd she’s ever played for. Still, Brown isn’t feeling an ounce of unwanted stress. “I really like the pressure,” Brown said. “I just like working hard, and going toward a goal of winning.” After four years of playing outside hitter at Chandler (Ariz.) Valley Christian High, Brown consulted with many of her current and future coaches. To maximize her potential at the next level, Brown switched to setter. Evidently those coaches were right. It took Brown just a single club season and a few weeks of practice to earn the role of starting setter on one of the nation’s top teams. “We thought she had a chance to see started recruiting her we didn’t project her to start as a freshman,” coach Mary Wise said. “She’s doing exactly what you want in college sports, and that’s when the opportunity presents itself to take full advantage of it.” Although Brown was a 2009 American Volleyball Coaches Association All-Amer ican who led the nation in kills as an outside hitter, her height (5-foot-9) meant it would be necessary to make a positional switch if she were to successfully transition to the college game. Wise, like many other coaches Brown encountered during the recruiting prothe setter role due to her foot speed and athleticism. “Her physical traits and leadership skills are really tailor-made for the setting position,” Wise said. “It’s not a stretch to think that Chanel could be the best backrow defensive setter that we’ve had here in this program.” fectly, Brown has been able to make the transition with relative ease. Even though the terminology, speed of the game and quality of athletes have all presented challenges, Brown is happy she made the move. “It’s been an amazing experience,” Brown said. “I love the transition from outside hitter to setter, and I wouldn’t change back. “I love running the offense, the fast pace of everything, and being able to play with such amazing athletes.” Brown’s step up to the collegiate level out the positional change, as she moved from a small Arizona private school to one of the most heavily populated public universities in the country. After four years of playing in front of just a few dozen fans in her high school gymnasium, the freshman will jump to the O’Connell Center, which drew more than 2,500 fans for last season’s home opener. “The Orange and Blue game was the biggest crowd I’ve played for so far,” Brown said. “But I’m not even nervous, I’m just excited to go out there and play for Gator Nation and for all the fans that come out and support all of us.” It should come as no surprise that Brown isn’t feeling any pressure, as the 2009 Arizona State Championship MVP once notched an astounding 26 kills and 19 digs in the biggest match of her life, leading her team to a come-from-behind victory in the championship match. “That state game was very intense and so much fun to be in,” Brown said. “I’m so proud of my high school team that we came out and won state, but now it’s a national championship we’re looking for.” Brown Ne ws National

According to Bob Horodyski, Frazier’s AAU coach, Frazier committed early because all the mail and phone calls that go with being a sought-after recruit. He chose UF because of the proximity to his family and the chance to play for coach Billy Donovan and the program he built. cruit for the class of 2012. “I was a little surprised that he committed this early,” Horodyski said. “But it was probably a smart thing to do. He felt comfortable with Billy (Donovan). I think he’s got a great opportunity at Florida.” Listed at 6-foot-4, Frazier is rated by Rivals. com as the 13th-best two guard in the class of 2012. He received offers from nearly a dozen schools and, according to Horodyski, even garnered attention from Duke and North Car olina. As a sophomore at Plant last season, Frazier averaged 26.7 points per game, while also pulling down almost eight boards per contest. After scoring 695 points last year, Frazier beCounty history to surpass the 1,000 career points mark. “He’s probably one of the best shooters I’ve ever coached,” Horodyski said. “He’s got deep range, and not only can he shoot open jump shots, but he can rise and shoot over people with pretty good accuracy. He’s a marksman, no out shoot the ball.” Horodyski said Frazier’s shooting touch reminds him of former UF guard Kenyan Weaks. During his four seasons at UF, Weaks shot nearly 43 percent from beyond the arc, making him one of the most While Horodyski heaped praise on Frazier’s offensive game, adding that he is adwith both hands, he said the 180-pound guard needs to work on his defense and ball-handling skills. However, he still has two seasons to perfect those facets of his game before enrolling at UF, Horodyski said. In addition to basketball, Frazier also serves as the director of the choir at his father’s church. “As great a basketball player as he is, and he’ll become, he’s probably a better person,” Horodyski said. “That’s rare to come by these days.” Oral commitments are non-binding until on or after National Signing Day.Gators receive oral commitment from four-star recruit MIAMI RANKED LAST IN YARDS ALLOWED PER PASS LAST SEASON.THE ASSOCIATED PRESSDAVIE — Miami Dolphins cornerback Sean Smith started all 16 games as a rookie and broke up a dozen passes but failed to catch any. His interception total: zero. “I’m going to go with all of the above,” Smith said. “It took awhile for me to get over it.” Such are the growing pains for a young cornerback, whose every misstep can become fodder for highlight shows. The Dolphins had rookies at both cornerback spots last year, one reason they ranked last in the league in yards allowed per pass. Smith and Vontae Davis are back for a second season, looking to make more plays and fewer mistakes. Their anticipated improvement would help solidify a Miami defense revamped after a disappointing 2009 season. “If those two guys compete every play like we know they can, we’ll be a very good defense,” strong safety Yeremiah Bell says. “If they clamp down, it means more sacks for the d-line and more interceptions for the safeties and linebackers. It makes life so much easier.” The Dolphins made the two young cornerbacks their top draft choices in 2009 with the expectation the team would be set at the position for years. Davis joined Smith in the starting lineup in October as a replacement for veteran Will Allen, who underwent seasonending knee surgery. Surtain and Madison,” Smith says. “Those are real big shoes.

24, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 25, 2010 Thomas Plevik / Alligator Staff By TYLER JETTAlligator Staff Writertjett@alligator.orgGators fans have known for more than a year who would start at quarterback in 2010. But the pecking order after John Brantley was murky until Monday, when coach Urban Meyer said Tyler Murphy is taking snaps with the second-team offense while Trey Burton has been used in the wildcat position. Both backups are true freshmen. Florida surprised some fans by offering Mur Conn., product was previously committed to Temple, a team in the Mid-American Conference with just one winning season since 1991. Meyer said he thinks Murphy has the potential to be a good quarterback but admitted the team has a problem with two inexperienced players waiting behind Brantley, a problem that would be son. “There’s a question about how long [Murphy has] been playing quarterback,” Meyer said. “He’s got a great arm and he’s a pretty mature kid, but he’s just not experienced. This is all new to him.” Giving Murphy the nod at quarterback was not necessarily a slight to Burton, who could be used in several positions this season. at making him the lead blocker on kick returns this season. “He’s a total ball player,” offensive coordinator Steve Addazio said. “He lines up, he’s taking snaps, direct runs he’s powerful, he’s smart, he’s a really good athlete, he has great hands.

Pouncey expected to replace his brother, Maurkice, at center this season. Nixon suffered a left knee injury while Patchan is rehabbing from a broken right wrist. The pair was competing for the starting left tackle position. Patchan has returned to practice but was held out of contract drills, Meyer said Monday. If neither player is ready by the season opener Sept. 4, Pouncey said he would move to right tackle. Marcus Gilbert, expected to play on the right side, would switch to left tackle, and sophomore Sam Robey would play center. UF offensive linemen practice multiple positions in the preseason to accommodate for injured starters once games begin, and Pouncey said he doesn’t mind switching positions. “I feel like I’m a great player wherever I play at,” he said, “and I just want to win.” “I feel like I’m a great player wherever I play at, and I just want to win.”Mike Pouncey UF offensive lineman

The newest sisters received their bid cards at the Reitz Union, which told them which house they'd been welcomed into. They then came rushing in little groups toward the houses, passing through Norman Tunnel, around Norman field and down Southwest Eighth Street. The crowd was divided. The sorority sisters stood clumped in colorful groups in front of their respective houses on the east side of the street. Meanwhile, hundreds of men stood watching across the way to cheer on the running sorority hopefuls and boo those who only walked. Each group of girls was decked out in their own house colors and silly hats. The Delta Gamma girls wore sailor caps, and the Alpha Epsilon Phi ho wore similar green and white ones. Though the sisters themselves declined to comment on the excitement of the day, the bystanders were more than happy to share their sentiments.

By JOEY FLECHAS Alligator Staff Writer As students jogged along the indoor track upstairs and pedaled on the exercise bikes near the tall glass windows, more than 100 faculty, staff, students and guests applauded Tuesday afternoon's ribbon-cutting at the newly renovated Southwest Recreation Center. UF officials, including President Bernie Machen, spoke to commemorate the building's official grand opening. Standing just inside the new front entrance, viewing the completed center for the first time, Machen said it looked 'spectacular.' "You know it's a good renovation when you can't remember the old building," he said. Speaking to a crowd that included recreational-activities representatives from the University of Central On Florida, University of South Florida, University Campus of West Florida and Florida A&M University, Machen said he was impressed with the facility, which he called the cornerstone of the southwest corner of camof their lives." After the ribbon-cuting, all were invited on tours of the facility, and cake was served in the lounge area, which has several large flat screen televisions and a smoothie bar. Robert Carroll, director of campus recreation at Florida A&M, said the additions and renovations make for a phenomenal facility. "Now it looks like you've reclaimed your spot at the top of the recreational totem pole," he said. Students rushed in for the RecSports Extravaganza, in which a few hundred students flocked to a basketball court for the pus. Sport Clubs fair, fitness demonstrations and free T-shirts.

Organizers seek submissions for skits via video upload UKU WL, from page 1 gatorgrowl.org as part of the Growl Minute of Fame competition. According to the website, submissions should not be more than a minute long, should be family-friendly and sent in by 5 p.m. on Sept. 20. The best three from students and the best three from alumni will be chosen by the event committee, then posted to the website to be voted on by everyone, Griffin said. The night of the show, the first place videos from both groups will be shown, and attendees will be asked to text in votes for their favorite submission. The winner of the contest will be declared live. There's also a contest asking for submissions of photos from Gator sporting events. The contest winner will be printed on the front page of the Gator Growl 2010 program, according to the website. Tickets for the event are $15 for students and $25 for general-admission tickets, but Griffin advises people to purchase tickets early because all prices go up $5 the week of the show. Griffin said for Ansari the price, you can't beat the entertainment you're sure to receive. "This year is kind of a lookingforward type thing because we've got a new line-up for football and a lot of things to be grateful for as a Gator," Griffin said.

The works originate from all over the continent, said Jason Steuber, the Cofrin Curator of Asian Art. The pieces come everywhere from central Asia to China, Tibet, Korea, Japan and down into southeast Asia. He said the works also come from all throughout history. Some originate from several thousand years B.C., while others originate from the contemporary era. He said that Chinese jades from the Ming and Qing dynasties, which stretched from the 1300s to the 1900s, were an example of the works that Cofrin left to the museum. Cofrin's donation, along with the museum's existing Asian art collection, will eventually be moved into the 26,000-square-foot David A. Cofrin Asian Art Wing, which will open its doors in 2012. Prior to his death, Cofrin donated $10 million to the construction of this wing. With the new donation and the new section to house, the current 130-piece Asian art collection will triple in size, he said. Three new galleries will be featured in the wing along with the existing gallery, he said. Though Cofrin's name will forever be attached to the new wing, his philanthropy was not strictly devoted to Asian art. "He also assisted in acquisitions in the contemporary, the modern and the photography collection," Wroath said. "The 312 works that were added to the Asian collection were a tremendous gift." Tami Wroath Harn Museum PR Director The 312 works Cofrin donated to the museum are worth an estimated $4.2 million. Wroath said that over the course of his life, he donated more than $30 million to the museum. "I think he believed in the mission of getting Gainesville an exceptional art museum," Steuber said. "As well as, I think, filling the need here for a center for the arts on campus .I think that was the grand scheme to develop a great cultural resource for not only the University of Florida, but also for the community at large."

6, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 25, 2010 Bad Eggs No one is safe from scary foods ill it ever be safe to go back to the grocery store? Still cowering in fear at the supermarket, clutching our grocery baskets as we inspect product label numbers on cartons in our own, makeshift, at-home test for salmonella following a massive recall last week of more than a half billion eggs, and just when you thought it was OK to clip coupons, things just got scarier. The U.S. Department of Agriculture recently announced 380,000 pounds of lunch meat used in deli sandwiches at WalMart stores nationwide may (or may not) be contaminated with Listeria. According to the USDA, Listeria can cause high fevers, a stiff neck, nausea and (no big deal) listeriosis, which can be fatal. A stiff neck followed by a potentially-you-may-or-may-not-diea-horribly-painful death all because we were running late to class and grabbed a smokehouse hero sandwich from one of Wal-Mart's deli cases? And don't even think about making an omelet until this all settles down. As of Friday, more than 1,000 people have been exposed to the salmonella in the egg recall that affects 28 percent of the United States. Luckily, the egg recall has not yet reached Florida, but the Food and Drug Administration warns the outbreaks are not over. Cue the scary "Jaws" theme music. And listen up, all you smug vegans and vegetarians out there: You aren't so immune to this either. Leafy vegetables account for the third-most tainted food item behind poultry and beef, according to a recent Center for Disease Control report. Is it just us, or is grocery shopping becoming more like a game of "Press My Luck?" Uplifting Upset appen to catch the Miss Universe Pageant Monday evening? Even know it was on TV? Yeah, we didn't either. But this year was special. And now we feel bad. For the first time in nearly two decades, the title of Miss Universe, at least for this year, belongs to Miss Mexico, breaking an apparent curse for our neighbor to the south. And we couldn't be happier for a pageant none of us watched. For a country ravaged by drug-cartel violence, poverty and that is still recovering from the near $2 billion worth of damage Hurricane Wilma caused to some of the country's most popular tourist destinations, perhaps this is a simple start to recovery for Mexico. We realize a pageant winner can never hope to solve a country's problems, but Miss Navarette, you're surely going to have to try! You have the world's spotlight now, so use that crown well! And considering one member of the Editorial Board just returned from a vacation in Mexico, we know the poverty first hand in that country. We've seen children, grown women, elderly wom en selling hand-crafted handkerchiefs for a dollar a piece on the road. We've seen the light in a child's eyes when we gave him a dollar for a handkerchief we didn't need. So when we found out the United States lost again, (we haven't won since 1997 if you don't include Puerto Rico), we couldn't have been happier to continue our own what-didwe-do-to-deserve-this-we'relike-so-pretty losing streak. It almost makes us sad we didn't have any idea the pageant was going on. Almost.

As if on a mission from the almighty bearded king Chuck Norris himself, freshmen guys have taken it upon themselves to exercise their first freedom away from home.

As a result, freshman guys' non-grizzled, but rather disgusting, faces could only be loved by their mothers. And certainly not by any college girls. We get it. You've never gotten to grow your facial hair because your mom threatened to stop giving you latkes and brisket if you didn't shave every morning. You've already gone a week without shaving now; you can see that you'll never get more than a few scraggly hairs. Part of becoming a man is learning that some men are more endowed than others. Some have Burt Reynoldslike mustaches or beards like Al's (from "Home Improvement"). Some have sparse strands of pubescence. And you're not alone. Our beloved No. 12 can't grow more than a furry upper lip, and if the Florida Gators won't even allow our future Heisman winner to wear a miniKerwin Bell-like, pencil-width mustache, what makes you think that your first facial hair actually looks manly? Please, if you're whiter than paper, and if you have hair darker than charcoal, please, please stay away from the leprechaun-esque chinstrap.

If you can grow a Wolverinestyle beard, go for it. During Octobeard or No-shave November, but not while we're trying to enjoy the end of summer. We'd be better off if you just drank the kool-aid. At least then you'd have kool-aid mustaches. Confession time: I can't grow real-man facial hair. It seems my Jewish and Greek heritage has overlooked myself and my siblings. I cannot grow facial hair, so I've discovered a way around my disability. I shave. Go figure. Instead of attempting to show my manhood through non-existent stubble, I show my manhood through tests of intestinal fortitude (see the Alligator's video of me eating Gator Dawg's Ghost Chili Dog for proof). I also regularly sprint on shards of glass. (It prepares me for my future career as a pain-resistant superhero.) If you're going to be a manly freshman, then you need to eat 32-ounce steaks, run weekly marathons, bench press ACRs' pick-up trucks and shave every day. I get your man-envy for the goatee; I share your envy. But work around your youth and/ or bad genes and shave.

That's why many college students would jump at the chance to become a mystery shopper. All you have to do is make a particular purchase in a store or restaurant, and then evaluate their experience. Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, it just might be. Recently, the Federal Trade Commission has noticed that mystery shopping companies may be targeting undergraduate students and recent grads with bogus job opportunities.The scam starts out sounding legitimate. People answer an e-mail or advertisement looking for part-time work. The scammer tells you that they need mystery shoppers. You can shop in your own time and collect a fee. If you've never been a mystery shopper, the next part won't strike you as strange: the company is going to send you a check to use to buy the small items you need to purchase to appropriately rate a retailer. Legitimate mystery shopping companies do not do that. They pay only after you shop and file an evaluation form and the pay is a very modest amount. The second red flag is that the check is going to be for a lot of money -likely $3,000 to $5,000 -which is vastly more than you need. The con-artist's excuse for sending so much money is that they want you to take your fee out of the check, plus the cost of whatever you're buying. And then, they want you to Cheryl Johnson wire the rest of the monU-Wire ey in order to supposedly evaluate a bank or wire service. They suggest you wait until the check clears to send them the money. The check then bounces after the person wires the money, leaving the shopper liable for the fake check. People who apply for the secret shopper or mystery shopper jobs are told by the company that they have only 48 hours to complete the assignment or they will lose the job. Arizona's Attorney General says, "Consumers need to know that a legitimate company will never send you a cashier's check out of the blue or require you to send money to someone you have never met. The scam artists use realistic looking documents, the 'secret' nature of the job, and the 48-hour deadline to pressure consumers into cashing the check and wiring the money quickly before the bank or the consumer can determine it was a fake check. By then, it's too late." So if a mystery shopper program asks you to pay an upfront fee to become an employee or deposit a check from someone you don't know and then wire money back, walk away immediately.

8, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 25, 2010 No parole for convicted dog torturer; victim wags tail Al Pnloto Louis Vuitton, a pit bull, leaves an Alabama Board of Pardons and Paroles hearing in Montgomery, Ala., Aug. 24. THE PIT BULL WAS BURNED AND BEATEN. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MONTGOMERY, Ala. -A scarred but friendly pit bull named "Louis Vuitton" was the star witness Tuesday as an Alabama state board denied parole for the man convicted of spraying him with lighter fluid, setting him on fire and beating him with a shovel. After the 8-year-old dog was led into the packed hearing room, the Alabama Board of Pardons and Paroles voted 3-0 to deny early release to 23-year-old Juan Daniels of Montgomery, who was sentenced in 2009 to nine years and six months in prison, a record in Alabama in an animal cruelty case. Daniels, whose supporters said he had been sentenced far more harshly than criminals who harm human beings, will be eligible for parole again in July 2012. The dog stuck his head forward for everyone who wanted to pet him as he entered. He bears burn scars from his head to his wagging tail, including white lines on his brown body where the burning lighter fluid seared his skin. "You have to see the scars to see what was done to him," said the dog's owner, Dee Hartley of Montgomery. She and her husband adopted the dog after the torture incident. It's unusual for a dog or other animal to make an appearance before such a panel. "I don't recall every having one here before," said Cynthia Dillard, executive director of the Alabama Board of Pardons and Paroles. The September 2007 attack on the dog drew wide notice. The Montgomery Humane Society got as many as 50 calls a day about the case, some from other News countries. The dog was given the name of a French fashion brand, "Louis Vuitton," in honor of a dog named "Gucci," whose torture case in Mobile in 1994 led to passage of "Gucci's law," which made animal cruelty a felony in Alabama. More than 60 law enforcement officers, animal rights advocates and other supporters of Louis crowded into the hearing. Relatives and friends of Daniels also faced the board and asked that he be released. Montgomery County District Attorney Ellen Brooks asked parole board members to make Daniels serve his entire sentence because of his cruelty to the dog and the nine disciplinary actions taken against him in prison. "The first reason to deny parole is to prevent him from hurting another animal or a person," Brooks said. She said he was accused of torturing the dog, which then belonged to his mother, because he was angry at her for not letting him use the car. A cousin, Thomas Hudson, said after the hearing he didn't think it was fair because Daniels is behind bars with "folks who committed more extensive crimes than he committed." Holladay Simmons, the veterinarian who treated Louis immediately after he was burned, told the board the dog's wounds were as bad as she had ever seen. Matt Cooper, the county animal cruelty officer who responded to the call, said after the hearing, "I've worked cases where people let their dog starve to death, but this was the worst case of animal cruelty that I've seen." Louis stood patiently outside the parole board offices after the hearing as people lined up to pat him on the head. He nuzzled up to many of his admirers, giving some a big, juicy lick on the face. NYC mayor supports mosque near WTC at Ramadan THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK -New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg says not allowing a mosque to be built near ground zero would be "compromising our commitment to fighting terror with freedom." The mayor made the comment Tuesday in an impassioned speech at a dinner in observance of Iftar, the daily meal in which Muslims break their fast during the holy month of Ramadan. Bloomberg says a compromise wouldn't end the debate. He says the question would then become "how big should the no-mosque zone around the World Trade Center site be?" Earlier Tuesday, Archbishop Timothy Dolan said after a meeting with Gov. David Paterson that New Yorkers share values of tolerance and unity but he's worried those values are at risk. Paterson wants mosque leaders to consider an alternative location. "We're just a little bit apprehensive that these noble values may be a bit at risk in this way the conversation and debate about the site of the mosque is taking place," Dolan said. Mosque supporters say religious freedom should be protected. Anational survey underscored the complex views of Americans toward the mosque project, with 51 percent agreeing with opponents of the Muslim center, while 34 percent said they supported it. The poll of 1,003 randomly chosen adults was conducted by the nonpartisan Pew Research Center and showed that a majority, 62 percent, also said Muslims have equal rights to build houses of worship. Dolan said both sides of the debate have legitimate stances. "I sure don't have strong feelings on where the mosque should ultimately be," he said during a brief news conference after meeting with the governor. They spoke about how religion can be brought to bear on the debate over the proposal in an effort to encourage reconciliation and community, rather than divisiveness, Dolan said, and expressed willingness to be part of the dialogue if asked. "Do I have any concrete plans or steps? Nope," he said. New York Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, who represents the lower Manhattan district where ground zero is, suggested Tuesday that Islamic leaders should move the proposed mosque. Paterson has made the same point. Organizers have the right to build the center at a building two blocks from ground zero but should be open to compromise, Silver said. "In the spirit of living with others, they should be cognizant of the feelings of others S.4 mr r. t Demonstrators in favor of the proposed Islamic center near ground zero make their feelings about the emotionally charged subject known in Manhattan on Sunday. and try to find a location that doesn't engender the deep feelings the currently exist about this site," Silver said. "I think the sponsors should take into very serious consideration the kind of turmoil that's been created and look to compromise," he added. The developer, meanwhile, was expected to attend a dinner Tuesday night hosted by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who has spoken in support of the project. Bloomberg holds the dinner annually to observe Iftar, the daily meal in which Muslims break their fast during the holy month of Ramadan. Paterson has yet to meet with anyone from the Cordoba Initiative, the project's organizer. Its co-founder, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, is on a Mideast trip funded by the U.S. State Department. He alluded to the controversy at a dinner Sunday night for student leaders at the U.S. ambassador's residence in Manama, Bahrain. "The fact we are getting this kind of attention is a sign of success," he said. "It is my hope that people will understand more. .This is something we are doing for your generation." Rauf also thankedPresidentBarackObama, who has said Muslims had the right to practice their religion and build the Islamic center in lower Manhattan. The president later said he wasn't endorsing the specifics of the plan. "I'm grateful to President Obama for his support for the project," said Rauf. The White House on Tuesday said that Obama would have no further comment on the issue and that the administration will not get involved in talks about relocating the facility. Republicans have vowed to make Obama's supportive comments a campaign issue in this fall's midterm elections.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 25, 2010 E ALLIGATOR, 9 Florida a winner in 'Race to the Top' competition The state will receive a share of about $4 billion THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MIAMI -Flonda joined eight other states and the District of Columbia Tuesday in winning the second round in the Department of Education's "Race to the Top" competition, which has spurred a wave of education reform across the country. The 10 applicants have been chosen along with two first-round winners for grants totaling about $4.35 billion. Florida's education leaders stated in their application that they want to use the funds to double the percentage of incoming high school freshmen who graduate and go on to college. They also want cut the achievement gap in half by 2015 and increase the percentage of students scoring at or above proficient on the National Assessment of Education Progress. Florida will be awarded up to $700 million to accomplish those goals. "Florida's students, teachers and schools won a great victory today," Gov. Charlie Crist said. Florida applied for the first round of the competition and was named a finalist, but only Delaware and Tennessee were given initial grants. About $3.4 billion remained for the second-round winners. The other winners announced by the Education Department Tuesday are: Georgia, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Maryland, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Rhode Island and Washington, D.C. "These states show what is possible when adults come together to do the right thing for children," U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan said. "Every state that applied showed a tremendous amount of leadership and a bold commitment to education reform." Florida's plan calls for making sure teachers are well chosen, trained and held accountable for student achievement. The state's application said teachers will be expected to provide a "culture of rigor" for students and work to improve their practice, by data analysis and peer collaboration. "With this critical funding secured we will be able to accelerate the academic progress of our students, provide assistance to our low-performing schools and develop a system that properly recognizes and rewards our hardest working teachers," Education Commissioner Enc Smith said. In its first round, unions in only five districts supported the state's application, which linked teacher pay to student test scores. In the second round, Gov. Charlie Cnst pulled together a working group consistent of News union, local and state school leaders, in the end achieving a broad consensus of support. "This award means the outstanding collaboration in Florida has been recognized," U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor, D-Tampa, said, adding that the award, coupled with $555 million from an education jobs bill approved by Congress, "will help our financially struggling school districts offer a quality education for Florida children." The Race to the Top program has been a game changer in education, with states embarking on ambitious reforms that lifted caps on charter schools and created new teacher evaluations in hopes of boosting their chance of receiving funds. A majonty, including Florida, also approved adoption of Common Core standards, the set of uniform reading and math benchmarks created by a coalition of state leaders. "Competition is something we haven't had in the school system, in terms of competing for dollars," Andy Ford, president of the Florida Education Association, the statewide teacher's union, said. "The federal involvement in education has been on a formula basis, and this is a whole new way of thinking." Wayne Blanton, executive director of the Flonda Association of School Boards, noted that $700 million spread out over four years is not much in a state that spends $20 billion a year on K-12 education. "It will have a small economic effect and a huge policy effect," he said. Blanton said that there will likely be tough negotiating in the weeks ahead, as states complete agreements with their local unions on the details of their plans. "Now comes the tough part," he said. p Have you suffered from at least 2 migraines pr month for at least 3 months or more? Are you female, at least 18 years of age?

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 25, 2010 E ALLIGATOR, 11 Former Fla. governor bashes class cap THE CLASS-SIZE LIMIT WAS IMPOSED IN 2002. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SALT LAKE CITY -Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush told Utah officials on Tuesday that there's little evidence to link smaller class sizes and student achievement. "I do not know of any research that suggests that lower-class size has any impact on student learning until you get down to a significantly lower number," Bush said. "And the research there is very scant." Bush made the comments about class sizes in response to a question by Utah Gov. Gary Herbert, who was chairing an education meeting Bush was invited to address. Utah has long been home to the nation's largest class sizes largely because it has the nation's highest birth rate and spends less per student than any other state. In the 2008-2009 school year, the most recent year for which comparable statistics were available, there were 23.7 students for every teacher, about eight more than the national average. Herbert is keenly aware of that fact as he enters his first election on the top of the GOP ticket, with his Democratic rival planning to make education one of the race's key issues. In 2002, Florida voters approved a constitutional amendment capping class sizes that Bush -who was governor from 1999 to 2007 -vigorously opposed. Previously, class size averages were calculated at the schoolwide level. The toughest requirements of the Florida amendment goes into effect this week. "Every class in every school in every district in the state has to meet that mandate," Bush said. "You can think of the logistical challenge. It's going to be a nightmare." Bush is working to get Florida voters to approve an amendment on News this year's ballot that would loosen the class-size requirements. A Harvard University study released in May said Florida's class size amendment has had no discernible effect on student achievement. The Florida Education Association, the statewide teachers union which supports the amendment, however, dismissed the study when it came out. It said it was biased because it came from a program linked to Bush. Utah Superintendent Larry Shumway said there's significant research to show class size has the greatest impact on minority students. Pet evacuation a priority in post-Katrina New Orleans THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW ORLEANS -The moment cut sharply through the chaos, suffering and fear of Hurricane Katrina -a small boy sobbed hysterically as he was separated from his dog Snowball while departing the wretched Louisiana Superdome. Snowball was one of thousands of pets split up from their owners after the storm struck Aug. 29, 2005, and the story triggered an outpouring of help to save stranded animals and reunite them with their families. The heart-wrenching tale also spawned new state and federal laws allowing evacuees to take their pets with them. "For the first time, there was the realization of the strength of the human-animal bond," said Ana Zorrilla, CEO of the Louisiana Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. "That sparked incredible changes on state and federal levels requiring that pets be included in all evacuation plans." Congress passed the Pets Evacuation and Transportation Standards Act in 2006, requiring plans for the evacuation of pets, as well as people. The act was tested in 2008 during Hurricane Gustav, and it worked. Crates for pets were placed at evacuation pickup points. Animals and their owners were banded with matching computer codes, and the animals were taken to the same locations as their owners, allowing them to spend time together. But things didn't go as smoothly three years earlier as the dirty water rose in New Orleans streets. People were rescued, but countless times they had to leave their pets behind as helicopters plucked them from rooftops or boats drove them to safety. Sandra Henry, 58, floated with her black lab, Tasha, to a rescue point where helicopters were ferrying victims to dry land. Along with an 87-year-old disabled woman and about a dozen relatives, Henry was rescued, but had to leave Tasha. "I took Tasha home, crying all the way," Henry said. "I left all the food I had out and opened the doors and windows. Leaving her here was so hard, but what else could I do?" It took almost two years for Henry and Tasha to be reunited. The dog had been adopted and living in Colorado. "I thought about her every day," Henry said. "When she got home she knew me right away." AP Photo Sandra Henry and her dog Tasha, who were reunited two years after Hurricane Katrina, hang out at their home in New Orleans, Monday, Aug. 23, 2010. It wasn't long before the poignant pictures and stories of abandoned pets had volunteer animal rescuers joining the search for stranded people. Houses were spray-painted with information about bodies found and pets rescued. The SPCA and 200 other organizations saved more than 8,000 pets after the hurricane. MuttShack, which was formed because of Katrina, rescued more than 3,000. SPCA supporters also donated more than $15 million to assist animal rescue efforts and to rebuild Gulf Coast shelters following Hurricane Katrina. But some of the pets weren't so lucky. Glenda Smith left her dogs, Max, a Jack Russell terrier, and Zack, a Chesapeake retriever, at home. Her neighbors were riding out the storm and were to take care of them, she said. Her dogs were rescued, but when she got to the facility where they were being held, only Zack was waiting. "I can't believe after all this time it's still so painful," Smith said. "I just hope whoever has him loves him as much as I do." Snowball was also lost. He was taken from his family as they scrambled through a long line for a bus that would take them away from the heat, stench and misery of the Superdome where thousands of those who couldn't make it out of the city were stranded. As the little boy wept and called his dog's name, his father swept him up in his arms and moved on in the line, unwilling to sacrifice a spot on the bus. Sweet Victory Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher, R-San Diego, right, receives congratulations from state Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles, on the passage of his measure to increase the penalties for convicted child molesters, which was approved by the Senate, at the Capitol in Sacramento, Calif., on Tuesday. The bill, known as Chelsea's Law, would reserve life without parole for adult predators who kidnap, drug, bind, torture or use a weapon while committing a sex crime against a child. The bill was named after 17-year-old Chelsea King, who was murdered in San Diego County by a convicted child molester out on parole earlier in the year. Seated is state Sen.

12, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 25, 2010 OIL SPILL Federal panel hears about Halliburton's THE ASSOCIATED PRESS HOUSTON -Federal investigators probing the blowout that led to the Gulf oil spill grilled a Halliburton official Tuesday about concerns the petroleum services firm raised over the potential for a severe gas flow problem if a BP plan was used. Halliburton and BP were at odds over a key device, known as a centralizer, that is used as part of the process to plug a deepwater well like the oil giant was doing at the time of the disaster. Halliburton's well design expert testified he told BP officials April 15 -five days before the well blew -that fewer centralizers would cause a bigger gas flow problem. Centralizers are meant to ensure casing runs down the center of the well bore. If casing strings are cemented off-center, there is a risk that a channel of drilling fluid or contaminated cement will be left where the casing contacts the oil formation, creating an imperfect seal. BP rejected Halliburton's recommendation to use 21 centralizers. Instead, BP used six centralizers. The April 20 blowout of BP's undersea well, which killed 11 workers and caused 206 million gallons of oil to spew, was triggered by a bubble of methane gas that escaped from the well and shot up the drill column, expanding quickly as it burst through several seals and barriers before exploding, according to interviews with rig workers conducted during BP's internal investigation and obtained by The Associated Press in May. E-mails released by Congress in June show that a BP engineering official conveyed Halliburton's conclusions to a BP well team leader and his own concerns that BP needed to install the extra centralizers. The well team leader responded he didn't like the idea because it would take 10 hours to install them. "BP then in turn decided not to run the additional centralizers without consulting me or their in-house specialists," Jesse Gagliano, the Halliburton official, told members of the joint U.S. Coast Guard-Bureau of Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement investigative panel. Tuesday's testimony was part of the panel's fourth session of hearings aimed at determining the cause of the explosion and how regulation, safety and oversight can be improved. After answering questions posed by the Coast Guard and other panel members, Gagliano was grilled by attorneys representing some of the other parties involved, including BP The oil giant's attorney often took on a sarcastic tone, repeating questions and responding with disbelief at times to Gagliano's answers. Gagliano was asked to read the e-mail he received April 20, about three hours before the well blew out, from Halliburton's engineer on board the rig. "We have completed the job and it went well," Gagliano the rig-bound engineer wrote to Gagliano. The attorney noted the engineer made no reference to gas flow problems or BP's decision to use fewer centralizers. Pointing to another 12-page document, prepared by Gagliano, the attorney asked if it reflected his "best engineering judgment and analysis." "No, this reflects what was actually pumped," Gagliano answered. "No, my best engineering analysis would have been to run 21 centralizers. In addition to operating the Deepwater Horizon rig that exploded, BP owned a majority interest in the ruptured undersea well. Transocean Ltd. owned the rig. Anadarko Petroleum held a minority interest in the well. The documents released in June include a series of e-mail exchanges between BP well team leader John Guide and BP drilling engineering team leader Gregory Walz. In an Apnl 16 e-mail, Walz said he had located an additional 15 centralizers in Houston and could fly them out to the Deepwater Horizon. Suggesting he knew he would get some resistance, Walz added: "I do not like or want to disrupt your operations and I am a full believer that the rig needs only one team leader. I know the planning has been lagging behind the operations and I have to turn that around. I apologize if I have over step my bounds." Later the same day, Guide panned the idea in part because of the time it would take to install the extra centralizers. "I do not like this," Guide wrote in an e-mail to Walz. P warning Nathaniel Chaisson, a Halliburton cementer who was on the rig assisting with the job, said he saw the additional centralizers on board the rig, but BP still decided against using them. Also Tuesday, a Transocean official said a high-ranking employee indicated a pressure test problem had been resolved hours before BP's Gulf of Mexico well blew out. Daun Winslow told the government panel that there was confusion among workers in the drill shack, who were talking before the explosion about a negative pressure test, a procedure typically done before a well is plugged. Later in his testimony, Winslow backtracked, saying instead he would characterize what was happening in the room as a "discussion" rather than confusion. Winslow said he left while the drill team and tool pushers were discussing the pressure test to avoid disturbing them. He said the highest-ranking Transocean person on the rig later gave him a "thumbs up," indicating it had been resolved. BP drilling engineer Brian Morel invoked his constitutional right not to answer questions before the panel Tuesday.

Sports WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 25, 2010 ALLIGATOR www.aIligatorSports.org Veterans being counted on to ground freshmen By KYLE MAISTRI Alligator Staff Writer kmaistri@alligator org Senior offensive lineman Mike Pouncey has some advice for Florida's highly touted recruiting class. And it has nothing to do with adjusting to the speed of college football, living away from home for the first time or better understanding the game. "At the end of the day the freshmen need to just shut their mouth and come play," Pouncey said. "They haven't done anything on Saturday, and most of the fans don't even know who they are. So, until they prove themselves, they just need to sit back and let the older guys play." The Gators brought in the second-best recruiting class in the nation, according to Rivals.com, signing four five-star and 17 fourstar players. Three of those five-star prospects -Dominique Easley, Sharrif Floyd and Ronald Powell -are defensive linemen, which has led to plenty of expectations and hyperbole for the group. "Ronald Powell is Chris Bosh, Sharrif [Floyd] is Dwyane Wade and I'm LeBron [James]," Easley said at UF's Media Day, drawing a comparison to the Miami Heat's free-agent class. Pouncey said the trio isn't as cocky as some of the other freshmen, but Easley's quote shows a little of bit of what concerns Urban Meyer with the season opener less than two weeks away. "You have 25 young players -or whatever it is -that think they're going to go dominate the way they did in high school, and they have no idea what's about to hit them," Meyer said. Meyer has a reputation for playing his best players regardless of seniority, and that won't be any different this season. The veteran players are counted on to make sure the rookies understand how demanding a college football season can be. "You don't want to beat up on them and tear down their confidence, you want to help them," redshirt senior Carl Johnson said. "You want to show your dominance but also be a great teammate. So I think that's one thing veteran guys do here. "It's kind of like a father-son lesson." Redshirt senior linebacker A.J. Jones remembers coming in with the 2006 recruiting class that included Tim Tebow, Percy Harvin and Brandon Spikes. Jones said his class, which also included Johnson, was just as cocky, but the older players on the team helped humble them and let them know that their time would come. A lot of them come in [cocky]. A lot got to adjust fast," Football Jones said. "Us older guys just try to tell them,'We had to wait our turn to play. It was rough at the beginning, but just keep working hard and everything will get better."' Meyer said this recruiting class might come across more arrogant or entitled than previous classes simply because there are so many heralded freshmen -25 to be exact, after Jordan Haden and Adrian Coxson decided to transfer. Arrogance aside, having that many freshmen who can potentially contribute to winning right away is a good problem for a head coach. "That's kind of standard operating procedure when you get a highly recruited player, but it seems like we have more of them, which is good," Meyer said. "They'll learn to do it." Thomas Plevik/ Alligator Staff UF defensive end Ronald Powell is part of this season's freshmen class, which was ranked No. 2 in the nation by Rivals.com. Meaningless early polls determine meaningful postseason rankings If you flipped through Tuesday's sports section, you saw the college football top-25 polls from each of our four columnists. If you read mine, you already know it better than I do. I mailed it in. By that, I mean I told our esteemed editor, Anthony Chiang, to do it for me (he'll be writing my papers and letting me steal his lunch this semester too). As much as I like making Chiang do things for me, I would rather have abstained. I'm not qualified to rank the best 25 teams in the nation. Odds are, you aren't either, nor are most of the media members in the Associated Press poll. There are too many teams, too many players and too Mike McCall McCallin' It Like I See It mmccall@alligatororg many question marks about all of them to make accurate predictions on a wide scale. Beyond that, no teams have played a down of football yet, so it's all based on hype and who is supposed to be good. I know one team well enough to make a guess about how its season will go: Florida. And even with UF, I'm hardly an expert. Sure, I spend large parts of my day talking and writing about the Gators, but I've yet to see them so much as run a sprint because fall practices are closed to the media. So how can I know how good they are until they play? It's all speculation, and that's all preseason polls are. That makes for some interesting debate -a large part of the entertainment factor of sports -but here's where it turns from me being a buzzkill to a real problem. In college football, polls actually matter. Unlike an NFL power poll, college rankings affect who gets to play for the national championship. The USA Today coaches' poll, Harris poll and computer rankings all play a part in the BCS formula. SEE MIKE, PAGE 21 Oregon State offensive lineman Patrick Thomas was kicked off the team after police found him naked and intoxicated in a stranger's home. Police used stun guns after Thomas dropped into a three-point stance and lunged at the officers. Coach Mike Riley was understandbly disappointed in his actions, as he preaches a four-point stance in such a scenario. Gators midfielder Tahnai Annis was named the Southeastern Conference Offensive Player of the Week. She scored two goals against UCF on Sunday. This is the second time she has earned the honor. "He's like a modern-day [Cornelius Ingram], but in smaller form. .It's fun watching him and seeing those little defensive backs try to tackle someone that big." Carl Johnson UF offensive lineman

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 25, 2010 E ALLIGATOR, 21 Brown to start at setter despite never playing position By GREG LUCA Alligator Writer gluca@alligator org When freshman setter Chanel Brown steps onto the court for Florida's opening match, she will instantly accomplish a number of career firsts. The first match of her collegiate career, her first career start and her first non-club match at a new position all figure to come in the team's first game, and all in front of the biggest crowd she's ever played for. Still, Brown isn't feeling an ounce of unwanted stress. "I really like the pressure," Brown said. "I just like working hard, and going toward a goal of winning." After four years of playing outside hitter at Chandler (Ariz.) Valley Christian High, Brown consulted with many of her current and future coaches. To maximize her potential at the next level, Brown switched to setter. Evidently those coaches were right. It took Brown just a single club season and a few weeks of practice to earn the role of starting setter on one of the nation's top teams. "We thought she had a chance to see playing time right away, but when we first started recruiting her we didn't project her to start as a freshman," coach Mary Wise said. "She's doing exactly what you want in college sports, and that's when the opportunity presents itself to take full advantage of it." Although Brown was a 2009 American Volleyball Coaches Association All-American who led the nation in kills as an outside hitter, her height (5-foot-9) meant it would be necessary to make a positional switch if she were to successfully transition to the college game. Wise, like many other coaches Brown encountered during the recruiting process, decided she would fit perfectly into the setter role due to her foot speed and athleticism. "Her physical traits and leadership skills are really tailor-made for the setting position," Wise said. "It's not a stretch to think that Chanel could be the best backrow defensive setter that we've had here in this program." Because her skills fit the position perfectly, Brown has been able to make the transition with relative ease. Even though the terminology, speed of the game and quality of athletes have all presented challenges, Brown is happy she made the move. "It's been an amazing experience," Brown said. Brown "I love the transition from outside hitter to setter, and I wouldn't change back. "I love running the offense, the fast pace of everything, and being able to play with such amazing athletes." Brown's step up to the collegiate level would have been a difficult one even without the positional change, as she moved from a small Arizona private school to one of the most heavily populated public universities in the country. After four years of playing in front of just a few dozen fans in her high school gymnasium, the freshman will jump to the O'Connell Center, which drew more than 2,500 fans for last season's home opener. "The Orange and Blue game was the biggest crowd I've played for so far," Brown said. "But I'm not even nervous, I'm just excited to go out there and play for Gator Nation and for all the fans that come out and support all of us." It should come as no surprise that Brown isn't feeling any pressure, as the 2009 Arizona State Championship MVP once notched an astounding 26 kills and 19 digs in the biggest match of her life, leading her team to a come-from-behind victory in the championship match. "That state game was very intense and so much fun to be in," Brown said. "I'm so proud of my high school team that we came out and won state, but now it's a national championship we're looking for."

In politics, we have a law mandating that candidates have the opportunity for equal airtime on radio and television. That doesn't exist in college football. While the AP poll doesn't have a direct effect on the BCS and the Harris poll doesn't kick in until a few weeks into the season, preseason rankings do affect how we judge a team's performance as the year wears on. I don't want to turn this into another column begging for a playoff (seriously though, please?) but I hate that the sport's champion is partially decided by votes rather than on the field. A day before the AP poll came out (with UF at No. 4), a reporter asked Florida defensive end Justin Trattou what he thought the rankings would be. "That means absolutely nothing because we're still going to go out and play the season," he said. I agree completely. I just wish the polls were still meaningless after the season has played out.

22, ALLIGATOR E WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 25, 2010 RECRUITING Gators receive oral commitment from four-star recruit By TOM GREEN Alligator Writer tgreen@alligatororg With the recent string of Tampa Plant High athletes making their oral commitments in the last two weeks, one more decided to join the fun. Without the flair and hoopla that came with the announcements of schoolmates James Wilder Jr., Phillip Ely and Tony Posada -all football players, four-star junior shooting guard Michael Frazier orally committed to play for the Gators late Monday night. According to Bob Horodyski, Frazier's AAU coach, Frazier committed early because he wanted to finish the recruiting process and all the mail and phone calls that go with being a sought-after recruit. He chose UF because of the proximity to his family and the chance to play for coach Billy Donovan and the program he built. His decision makes him Donovan's first recruit for the class of 2012. "I was a little surprised that he committed this early," Horodyski said. "But it was probably a smart thing to do. He felt comfortable with Billy (Donovan). .I think he's got a great opportunity at Florida." Listed at 6-foot-4, Frazier is rated by Rivals. com as the 13th-best two guard in the class of 2012. He received offers from nearly a dozen schools and, according to Horodyski, even garnered attention from Duke and North Carolina. As a sophomore at Plant last season, Frazier averaged 26.7 points per game, while also pulling down almost eight boards per contest. After scoring 695 points last year, Frazier became the first sophomore in Hillsborough County history to surpass the 1,000 career points mark. "He's probably one of the best shooters I've ever coached," Horodyski said. "He's got deep range, and not only can he shoot open jump shots, but he can rise and shoot over people .with pretty good accuracy. He's a marksman, no doubt about it. He can flat Donovan out shoot the ball." Horodyski said Frazier's shooting touch reminds him of former UF guard Kenyan Weaks. During his four seasons at UF, Weaks shot nearly 43 percent from beyond the arc, making him one of the most prolific shooters in school history. While Horodyski heaped praise on Frazier's offensive game, adding that he is adept at attacking the basket and finishing well with both hands, he said the 180-pound guard needs to work on his defense and ball-handling skills. However, he still has two seasons to perfect those facets of his game before enrolling at UF, Horodyski said. In addition to basketball, Frazier also serves as the director of the choir at his father's church. "As great a basketball player as he is, and he'll become, he's probably a better person," Horodyski said. "That's rare to come by these days." Oral commitments are non-binding until on or after National Signing Day. Dolphins to rely on pair of second-year cornerbacks 0 MIAMI RANKED LAST IN YARDS ALLOWED PER PASS LAST SEASON. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS DAVIE -Miami Dolphins cornerback Sean Smith started all 16 games as a rookie and broke up a dozen passes but failed to catch any. His interception total: zero. Did he find it frustrating to be shut out? Embarrassing? Shocking? "I'm going to go with all of the above," Smith said. "It took awhile for me to get over it." Such are the growing pains for a young cornerback, whose every misstep can become fodder for highlight shows. The Dolphins had rookies at both cornerback spots last year, one reason they ranked last in the league in yards allowed per pass. Smith and Vontae Davis are back for a second season, looking to make more plays and fewer mistakes. Their anticipated improvement would help solidify a Miami defense revamped after a disappointing 2009 season. "If those two guys compete every play like we know they can, we'll be a very good defense," strong safety Yeremiah Bell says. "If they clamp down, it means more sacks for the d-1ine and more interceptions for the safeties and linebackers. It makes life so much easier." The Dolphins made the two young cornerbacks their top draft choices in 2009 with the expectation the team would be set at the position for years. Davis joined Smith in the starting lineup in October as a replacement for veteran Will Allen, who underwent seasonending knee surgery. "When we first came in, everybody was comparing us to Surtain and Madison," Smith says. "Those are real big shoes. And when you give up a touchdown, and the crowd is on your back and yelling things, it would be easy for a guy to tank it. "Even the best get beat. We understand that. You have to be the most arrogant guys on the field sometimes." I U p l LEAERSHIp EXCELLENCE www.goarmy.com/uf @2008. Paid for by the United States Army.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 25, 2010 0 ALLIGATOR, 23 Columnist Predictions Brantley will be Heisman runner-up Florida is coming into the season with more questions than answers, but I'm about to fix that. The Gators are going to lose one game in the regular season and it won't be against Alabama. They will rout Miami (Ohio) and interstate "rival" USF before getting into the meat of their schedule. Next, they will go on the road to play Tennessee, but UF will blow that one open in the second half. The Vols are throwing out junior college transfer Matt Simms to be their quarterback -no, that's not a good thing for Tennessee. UF's next game will be dedicated to Tim Tebow as it goes up against Kentucky, the team that gave him the concussion. If that wasn't enough to motivate the Gators to a blowout victory, they are facing a coach named Joker. These first four games will be crucial to quarterback John Brantley's success. By this time he will have cemented his name in the Heisman Trophy race, amassing 1,100 passing yards and 10 touchdown passes. But his next game will be the true test. Alabama will be close, but UF will win this one. The Crimson Tide won't be as strong as analysts predict. It loses eight of its 11 starters on defense and Florida will expose that as Brantley continues his surge to prominence with 275 yards passing in the contest. At this point, the Gators will be ranked Anthony Chiang Chiang Reaction achir Ca n ligator org Twitter @Chiang Reaction No. 2. They will turn that momentum into a close win over LSU before slipping up against Mississippi State in their homecoming game. I know it sounds crazy, but Florida has fallen to a team from the Southeastern Conference West in each of the last 11 seasons, and former Gators offensive coordinator Dan Mullen will come up with a great game plan to baffle the Gators defense. UF will blow through its next four games before making the trip up to Tallahassee to earn a hard-fought victory against FSU. That will bring the Gators to the rematch everybody will be waiting for UF and Alabama in the SEC Championship Game. The Crimson Tide will take this one, which will leave Florida playing in the Sugar Bowl for a second straight year. Brantley will end the season with at least 3,500 passing yards and 40 touchdowns through the air -just enough to make fans forget about their beloved Tebow for a year. UF will finish second in the SEC standings, and Brantley will be the runner up for the Heisman Trophy. Freshmen to make impact on D ince the Sugar Bowl in January, almost all talk concerning Florida has surrounded new quarterback John Brantley. But the Gators face a more pressing issue than replacing Tim Tebow. The team lost two linebackers, two defensive ends, two defensive backs and the coordinator from a unit that held opponents to 12.4 points per game. Up front, the Gators have plenty of options, including several backups from last year's team. But, on paper, no players have excited fans more than freshmen Ronald Powell, Dominique Easley and Sharrif Floyd. The super trio -along with Chris Martin, a California signee who transferred to Florida on July 20 -was christened by some recruiting analysts as "The Greatest Defensive Line Class Ever (or until our hyperbole gets out of control again next year)." Coach Urban Meyer has tried to curb fans' enthusiasm since training camp opened, calling his freshman class "an OK group" and saying Powell in particular has not played well enough to earn meaningful minutes this season. But Rivals.com listed Powell as the No. 1 overall recruit in the nation for a reason, so expect the defensive end to adapt to whatever problems are holding him back. He's 248 pounds and ran a 4.52-forty at some high school combines. He returned a blocked kick for a touchdown and also caught one in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl. High school pictures revealed he Tyler Jett The Jett Stream tjett@alligator org has eight-pack abs! He will start by Sept. 18, when Florida plays Tennessee. Also expect to see a lot of first-year safety Matt Elam, the brother of Cleveland Browns safety Abram Elam and the No. 2 recruit at his position, according to Rivals. Meyer said Elam reported to the team "doughy" this summer but got back in shape before camp started. Elam will stay behind Ahmad Black and Will Hill on the depth chart, but he should see the field in the "Magic" package, which is just the 2010 version of the "Joker" package. But even with both those players emerging, the defense will not post numbers similar to last season. Excluding the Southeastern Conference Championship Game, the 2009 unit was special, and replacing Joe Haden, Brandon Spikes and Ryan Stamper will be tough. Speaking of that one misstep, forget the Alabama game this season. You know it will be hyped, but the more important matchup will be against a Georgia team hungry to bounce back after a couple bad years. When the Gators win their third straight meeting against the Bulldogs, Florida will face Alabama for a second time in 2010. Henry will win Ray Guy Award It all seemed so preordained a season ago. The Gators would play in the Southeastern Championship Game and a BCS bowl game, and Timmy would end his season in New York, pushing for another Heisman Trophy. ot everyone saw the season going the exact same way, but those three things were almost givens from the very beginning. This year, nothing is a given. Except for wins against Miami (Ohio), USF and Appalachian State. Although, I'm sure Michigan said the same thing before becoming the victim of the biggest upset in college football history. Florida has enough talent to contend for another national championship, but many of the players that will be relied upon are inexperienced. John Brantley has never started a game, Deonte Thompson is the only wide receiver or tight end with more than 14 career receptions and the defense is replacing six starters. Looking at the home schedule, I don't see the Gators losing more than once in The Swamp. If they do drop a home game, I think the Nov. 13 matchup with South Carolina will be the one. The road schedule is a different story. Traveling to Tuscaloosa to play Alabama looks like a loss on paper, but I wouldn't put it past UF to pull an upset. Not that I'm predicting that to happen. Games against Georgia in Jacksonville and Florida State in Tallahassee won't be U Kyle Maistri Kyle Points kmaistri@alligatororg Twitter @KMaistri easy, but I don't expect Florida to lose more than one of those. So, I'll put the team at 10-2, which will be good enough to earn a return trip to the SEC Championship Game and a rematch with Alabama. 'Bama will send UF home from Atlanta with a loss, landing the Gators in the Sugar Bowl for the second consecutive season, and giving me another week in New Orleans. Individually, I like wide receiver Omarius Hines, running back Mike Gillislee and defensive end Justin Trattou to have breakout years to varying degrees First Team All-SEC would be a breakout year for Trattou, while a 600-yard season would qualify the same for Hines or Gillislee. Brantley will be as good as advertised, meaning the bulk of the team's yardage comes through the air and not on the ground. I don't see him hoisting a bronze statue at the end of the season, though. The previous 350 or so words are just one person's best guess at what to expect out of this season, but I will leave you with one thing I know for sure: Punter Chas Henry will be better as his position than any other Gator at his respective position. The Ray Guy Award seems inevitable. UF to lose to 'Cocks, 'Noles lorida will go 11-3, finishing 2010 with a repeat of last year's SEC Championship Game loss and Sugar Bowl win. In the words of Vicky Valencourt: "That ain't no guess! That's what it's gonna be." Of course, that's probably wrong, but here's how I see the season going. Florida will pummel poor, defenseless Miami (Ohio) and pull away late in the second half against USF and wondercoach Skip Holtz. Tennessee and Kentucky aren't good, so that should give the Gators time to work out all their position battles and get quarterback John Brantley some experience before The Game in Tuscaloosa. Check this out: they're going to beat the Crimson Tide. UF is going to show up big-time for that one while 'Bama comes in after a tough road game at Arkansas. It'll come down to a few key plays, and Florida will make them. Property damage across the state of Alabama will be devastating. Four more SEC wins later, the 9-0 Gators are the toast of college football until Steve Spurrier and his mighty Gamecocks show up in The Swamp and ruin everything. The band Hootie & the Blowfish, which formed at USC, will reunite and write a song about it. Spurrier will say something funny after the game. If you're keeping score at home, you've noticed I have UF losing one more regular season game, which means. FSU will beat Florida. I know that Mike McCall sounds impossible after what's hapLike I See It pened in the past mmccall@alligatororg few years, but quarTwitter @McCallinit terback Christian Ponder is awesome, and it has to happen eventually. Jimbo Fisher tricks everyone into thinking he's a good coach with a huge win in front of the home crowd. The Gators still get into the SEC Championship because South Carolina falls to Auburn and Alabama, but the Tide wins the rematch and UF goes back to the Sugar Bowl. I do lots of drinking on Bourbon Street and sing karaoke at Cats Meow (Tim McGraw's "Something Like That"). The Sugar Bowl doesn't really matter, but Florida will probably clown some overmatched Big East team. All in all, I'd consider that a solid season for a team that lost as many key players as the Gators did, but I'm sure the idea of losing to the 'Noles is vomit-inducing for most of you. Those are 26 predictions for this year, and I personally guarantee two of them to be true: UF will beat Miami (Ohio), and Spurrier will say something really, really funny.

24, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 25, 2010 Role of backup QBs takes form By TYLER JEIT Alligator Staff Writer tjett@alligator org Gators fans have known for more than a year who would start at quarterback in 2010. But the pecking order after John Brantley was murky until Monday, when coach Urban Meyer said Tyler Murphy is taking snaps with the second-team offense while Trey Burton has been used in the wildcat position. Both backups are true freshmen. Florida surprised some fans by offering Murphy a scholarship in January, as the Wethersfield, Conn., product was previously committed to Temple, a team in the Mid-American Conference with just one winning season since 1991. Meyer said he thinks Murphy has the potential to be a good quarterback but admitted the team has a problem with two inexperienced players waiting behind Brantley, a problem that would be amplified should the starter get injured this season. "There's a question about how long [Murphy has] been playing quarterback," Meyer said. "He's got a great arm and he's a pretty mature kid, but he's just not experienced. This is all new to him." Giving Murphy the nod at quarterback was not necessarily a slight to Burton, who could be used in several positions this season. In addition to fielding snaps, Burton has lined up at the flexback position and Meyer even hinted at making him the lead blocker on kick returns this season. "He's a total ball player," offensive coordinator Steve Addazio said. "He lines up, he's taking snaps, direct runs. he's powerful, he's smart, he's a really good athlete, he has great hands. I would say that's been really fun to watch develop here over the last five, six days." Tight ends coach Brian White added he is impressed with Burton's ability to adapt to new positions. "He's a really unselfish guy," White said. "He wants to help this football team win in whatever role coach Addazio, coach Meyer devise for him." Offensive line shakeup: Senior Mike Pouncey said there is a good chance he will play tackle early this season as Xavier Nixon and Matt Patchan recover from injuries. Pouncey expected to replace his brother, Maurkice, at center this season. "I feel like I'm a great player wherever I play at, and I just want to win." Mike Pouncey UF offensive lineman Nixon suffered a left knee injury while Patchan is rehabbing from a broken right wrist. The pair was competing for the starting left tackle position. Patchan has returned to practice but was held out of contract drills, Meyer said Monday. If neither player is ready by the season opener Sept. 4, Pouncey said he would move to right tackle. Marcus Gilbert, expected to play on the right side, would switch to left tackle, and sophomore Sam Robey would play center. UF offensive linemen practice multiple positions in the preseason to accommodate for injured starters once games begin, and Pouncey said he doesn't mind switching positions. "I feel like I'm a great player wherever I play at," he said, "and I just want to win." inomas rieviK/ migator tanl Coaches want to use freshman Trey Burton all over the field this season. He has lined up behind center and at the flexback position in practice.
