BLEAUX'N AWAY

UF 6-0, No. 2 in AP poll I

Orange and cheese?
This was part Swamp, part
Green Bay. Quarterback Chris
Leak hurled himself into the
stands, registering his own trade-
mark version of the Lambeau
Leap, Leak's face portraying the
sheepish expression of a child
who had just received an unex-
pected second scoop of bubble
gum-flavored ice cream.

part Camden Yards. One by one,
UF players hotfooted toward a
rabid student section. The Gators
made like Cal Ripkens, thank-
ing as many fans as time would

Sunshine began blaring away.
Tim Tebow had his contin-
gent in the stands. Urban Meyer
had his family around him. The
Gators had their army about


them.
The taste of a 23-10 LSU beat-
down was a succulently Cajun
one in Gainesville early Saturday
evening, as they roasted live
Tiger at the Swamp and posed
BCS officials a pressing question:
How do you like your Tostitos?
Gator-done with a dash of salsa,
please.
The now No. 2 Gators (6-0,
4-0 Southeastern Conference)
are suddenly SEC and national
championship contenders. How

Buses carry more riders, even on Sunday


By GEORGIA BUCKHALTER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Gainesville's bus system is serving more
UF students on more days of the week, ac-
cording to a count at the end of the Regional
Transit System's fiscal year.
RTS boasted a ridership of 8.6 million
this year, up half a million from last year's
figures.
Also part of this trend is RTS' recent addi-
tion of Sunday bus service, which has experi-
enced surprisingly high ridership in its first

six weeks of operation.
"In the beginning our goal was to trans-
port 15 passengers per hour, but from day one
we'vebeen carrying an average
Local of 17 passengers per hour," said
News RTS Director Jesus Gomez.
These productivity figures
are phenomenal at such an early stage in the
Sunday bus program, Gomez said.
"The first Sunday buses just started run-
ning a month and a half ago, and RTS didn't
expect to hit the 15-passenger-per-hour aver-
age until the end of our two-year pilot run,"


Gomez said.
Bob Miller, chairman of the UF committee
that recommends how much students should
pay for transportation as part of their tuition,
is optimistic that the Sunday bus program
will continue to grow.
"Initially students have this '7-11
Syndrome' because they are so used to pull-
ing right up to the front of a store and hop-
ping out," Miller said. "It's a shock when

pep rally

By JOEY CHINDAMO
and JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Writers

Thousands of people learned
Friday night that Hot Pockets are
the quickest way to the toilet at
least according to Gator Growl co-
median Jim Gaffigan.
About 40,000 people attended
UF's 83rd annual Growl event,
which is billed as the world's
largest student-run pep rally. The
show's yearly staples like stu-
dent skits, up-and-coming comedi-
ans and fireworks were featured
in keeping with the event's "Relive
the Tradition"
theme.
Gaffigan,
known for his
roles on TV
shows like "Sex
and the City,"
opened his
Gaffigan performance
with a joke
about meeting UF president Bernie
Machen. "What a drunk," he said,
adding that Machen was a "fabu-
lous kisser."
In a press conference Thursday,
Gaffigan said most of his jokes
would be relatively new, but his
Growl performance included his
well-known riff on Hot Pockets.
Comedian Gabriel Iglesias, who
is known for his stint on NBC's
show "Last Comic Standing,"
opened for Gaffigan with jokes
about the 2004 hurricane season,
saying it was "the first time white
people washed up in Cuba."
Iglesias also described the "five
levels of fat," placing himself in the
fourth category, called "Fluffy."
Gaffigan was paid $42,500 for
his appearance, while Iglesias
pocketed $16,000. Growl was set
up by Florida Blue Key, a private

UF has received $425,000 to
expand its involvement in a huge
international database that holds
scientific information.
The Open Science Grid is a
computer network connecting
researchers across the globe. The
grid's purpose is to share the large
amounts of information generated
in scientists' experiments. It has
50 members in the United States,
along with members in 'South
America and Asia.
The grant is part of $30 mil-
lion shared by 15 members. The
National Science Foundation and

Willie Alesten, the main

Thursday morning after nine

Alesten was wanted in con-

whom they called "armed and
dangerous."
Sgt. Keith Kameg, spokes-

in contact with officers during
the two weeks.
Alesten arrived at GPD head-

CLASS DEBT

Faculty assembly looks to different plan for debt


By CHAD SMITH
Alligator Writer
csmith@alligator.org

Faculty members in UF's College of Liberal
Atts and Sciences have voted to "set aside" the
college's five-year plan, which was designed
to eliminate a $4 million debt.
CLAS Dean Neil Sullivan said the CLAS
Assembly, which offers him advice, wants to
look into other ways to fix the college's budget
troubles. Now that the assembly has voted
against the plan, Sullivan will discuss the deci-
sion with UF Provost Janie Fouke.
Faculty members didn't feel enough time
was taken in drafting the plan, Sullivan said.


They also felt it didn't demonstrate shared
governance the idea that administrators
and faculty should both contribute in the deci-
sion-making process.
Sullivan said he is open to changes.
The current draft, which Sullivan helped
write, calls for financial and personnel reduc-
tions in departments including English and
mathematics by 2010.
In. July, UF administrators paid off the
college's debt from previous years, which
totaled about $4 million. But CLAS is already
projected to rack up another $4 million debt
during the current school year.
Fouke told Sullivan to get the college out of
debt by the 2008-09 academic year.


"We cannot get through this without some
cuts," Sullivan said.
"We cannot get through this with-
out some cuts."
Nell Sullivan
CLAS dean

He said the rising number of students ad-
mitted to the university has put financial pres-
sure on the college, since most students have
to take some core classes in CLAS.
Non-CLAS majors take 59 percent of the
seats in CLAS courses. To keep up with stu-
dent demand, new faculty had to be hired, he


said. But this year, UF held its freshman class
stable, admitting fewer students than it has
since 1991.
In order to shake up the college's budgeting
practices, the assembly also advised Sullivan
to dissolve the college's current Faculty
Finance Advisory Committee, he said.
The committee, whose members are ap-
pointed by Sullivan, advises the dean in dis-
tributing money to CLAS departments.
The assembly advised Sullivan to form
a similar committee in which six members
would be elected and three appointed by
Sullivan. Sullivan said he agrees with the sug-
gestion and the committee should be formed
in about two weeks, he said.


Alumni, students unite in Homecoming parade tradition


* SISTER HAZEL AND SEN.
BILL NELSON RODE IN CON-
VERTIBLES FOR THE EVENT.

By JOEY CHINDAMO
Alligator Writer
jchindamo@alligator.org

UF's Homecoming weekend is
designed .to bring alumni back to
town, but that didn't stop the rest
of the Gainesville community from
coming out to the annual parade
Friday.


This parade marked the annual
event's 83rd year, and 143 groups
march or rode in it on the first day of
UF's Homecoming festivities.
Various student and local orga-
nizations participated in the parade.
Some rode on custom-made floats,
while others walked or danced their
way down University Avenue.
Some groups made a party of the
occasion. The UF Surf Club had doz-
ens of people on its party-on-wheels
float, complete with a surf-rock
band and beach-bar look.
High school marching bands


from around the area, ranging in
size from hundreds of young musi-
cians to just a few dozen, performed
in the parade as well.
Members of the Gainesville-bom
band Sister Hazel were the parade's
grand marshals, riding near the
front of the parade in convertibles.
For photos of the parade and other
Homecoming events, see pg. 14.
Student Government executives
and Florida Sen. Bill Nelson also
made appearances in the parade.
Jason Jowers, from Keystone


Heights, came to the parade with
his wife and 3-year-old daughter,
Mackenzie.
"She's excited for the parade,
but we're waiting for (the game),"
Jowers said.
A high school bluegrass band
called Sweetwater Special per-
formed for people walking on
University Avenue.
"We try to openpeople's minds to
bluegrass," said Michael Lesousky,
the band's mandolin player.
Prior to the parade's start, more
than 1,000 people participated in


the Gator Gallop, which began at
the James G. Pressly Stadium and
continued down West University
Avenue.
The Gator Gallop is a 25-year-old
tradition in which people pay to run
in a two-mile race.
For some, this year's parade
marked milestones in their lives.
Kristin Millson, a UF graduate from
Winter Park, said it was her 36th
consecutive Homecoming.
"I came up (Thursday) night for
the parade and to see my family and
friends," Millson said.

* HAPPENSTANCE *

1 Cheap piano ignites like a winter campfire


A Gainesville Fire Rescue fire.
fighter douses a flaming piano
on Northwest Third Avenue early
Sunday morning.
The usually serene street, witn
its arching oak limbs and liberal-
minded college students, ignited
shortly after bars closed.
The loud music from decked-out
cars and the live band playing out-
side brought a flood Of revelers from
an already overflowing party into
the street, where they danced and
flung glow sticks from one side to
the other in a blue and green neon
shower.
As the celebration escalated, a
piano with broken keys and useless
pedals was dragged into the street
for a performance.

leadership honorary.
Growl also featured Ken Block and Drew
Copeland, of Gainesville rock band Sister Hazel,
singing the national anthem with the University
Gospel Choir.
Student skits included the traditional parodies
of rival football programs and imitations of popu-
lar television commercials.
AUF version of Miller Lite's "Man
Gator Law" commercials was also featured,.
GrOWI using a council of university figtires
that included Student Body President
John Boyles and football players Brandon Siler
and Tim Tebow.
The council passed three "Gator Laws"
concerning issues like rooting for other football
teams, body paint and studying on game days.
Earlier in the show, UF basketball player
Lee Humphrey crowned Nina Vaghaiwalla as
Homecoming queen. She blew kisses and waved
as she was crowned.
Several winners of Gator Growl Talent Night
performed in the show, including vocal-cat-


egory winner Vivian Lamolli and dance troupe
Soundstage, the winner of the dance category.
In between the comedians' performances,
head football coach Urban Meyer and seniors
from the Gators football team took the stage for
recognition.
"This is a special group of seniors," Meyer
said. "They've done everything we asked."
Gators quarterback Chris Leak, who received a
standing ovation before his introduction, took the
microphone to thunderous applause and cheers.
"We expect this to be the loudest stadium
in college football, ever," Leak shouted to the
crowd.
UF alumna Jill Garcia, 53, said she grew up
two blocks from the stadium and has seen plenty
of Growl events. This year's show was "one of the
better ones," she said.
But sports management senior Kenny Zaron
said Growl was not what he expected.
Zaron said the show would have been more
enjoyable if different comedians had performed.
"They could have paid someone better," he
said. "I mean, FSU got Stephen Colbert for like
8,000 people, and I think we can do better than
that."


"This is a
special group
of seniors.
They've done
everything we
asked."
Urban Meyer
UF football
coach


History senior Eric Joyner. who
had bought the piano for $10, said a
couple of his friends had been talk-
ing about breaking it or burning it.
"They decided they were going
to get it from a house a block awav
and set it on fire in the middle of the
road." Joyner said.
His friends and other partiers
soaked the piano in lighter fluid, lit it
and danced around the flames like it
was a winter carnpfire.
One man slammed on the burn-
ing keys as a woman jumped on top
of the piano, shimmying against the
fire.
"Everybody was going nuts."
Joyner said. "It was ridiculous."

City could pick up bus tab

BUS, from page 1

Turlington, park and go to the library."
Miller emphasizes the convenience of bus transportation
in lieu of driving without passengers. He cites safety, reliabil-
ity, limited parking and high gas prices as reasons to use mass
transit.
"Now that students have the convenience of bus travel seven
days a week, we can really propose the philosophy that students
can come to UF's campus, go to school here and do it without a
car," Miller said.
At a cost of $312,635 a year, the Sunday bus service trial
run is half funded by the transportation access fees paid by
UF students and half subsidized by a grant from the Florida
Department of Transportation.
Once the contracts end and the pilot program is reviewed, the
Gainesville City Commission will choose whether to step in and
keep RTS buses running on Sundays.
The addition of Sunday service was not a part of RTS's long-
term development plan until 2009, Gomez said.
Of the 10 Sunday buses, nine operate off campus from 10 a.m.
to 5 p.m., and the East-West Circulator operates on campus from

Give us a break

Homecoming crowd

rapes, pillages UF
They came. They saw. They left their crap all over
campus.
We're talking about alumni, of course, who poured
into Gainesville by the thousands for last Saturday's
Homecoming game. We love them as much as the next stu-
dent, and probably for the same reason their money -
but to be honest, we're getting a little tired of the routine.
It goes something like this. Starting on Friday, old people
invade our sleepy little town. They clog our intersections
with their cars and park in our bike lanes. They take all the
good tables in our favorite restaurants. On Saturday, they
camp out on our front lawns, throwing footballs, grilling
hamburgers and drinking Bud Light at noon!
Once the game starts, they desert their shantytowns
- tents, folding chairs and mounds of garbage to march
to the Swamp and boo our starting quarterback. And then,
until next weekend, they're gone. Wham, bar, thank you
ma'am.
Now, don't get us wrong. If you're middle-aged, bored
and just dying to visit your alma mater, we're more than
happy to host you, even if you do tend to trash the place a
little. We'll probably do the same thing after we graduate.
But at least by then we'll have robots to clean up after us.
And hamburgers in pill form no messy grill required!
But that's all in the future. For the time being, we'll settle
for alumni who don't blitz Gainesville. like a Viking horde
once a week. Or, better yet, a police force that doesn't look
the other way when Gramps beaches his Cadillac across
three parking spaces. Write him a ticket, guys. Please.
Of course, that's wishful thinking. UF loves its alumni
- in fact, this is their school, their town. We just happen to
live here. But it's nice to dream, isn't it?


FEMA follies


George, you're do-
ing a heck of a job.
Really.
First, the president
ignored warnings about
New Orleans' shaky levees.
Then he sat on his hands
as hundreds died in the
wake of Hurricane Katrina.
And now, more than a year
later, he refuses to clean
up the Federal Emergency
Management Agency. We
just don't get it.
Last month, Congress
passed a bill requiring,
among other things, mini-
mum qualifications for
future FEMA directors:
five years of executive
experience and a "knowl-
edge of emergency man-
agement." Sounds pretty
reasonable. After all, no
one wants another politi-
cal appointee like Michael


Brown, who worked for
the International Arabian
Horse Association before
coming to FEMA.
The president signed the
bill into law Wednesday.
But according to a "sign-
ing statement" released
by the White House, he
won't obey the part about
minimum qualifications. In
other words, if he wants to
put Barney the first ter-
rier in charge of FEMA,
he'll do it. Screw the law.
Rep. Katherine Harris
voted for the FEMA bill.
So did Reps. Corrine
Brown and Cliff Stears of
Alachua County. Now it's
up to them and their
colleagues on Capitol Hill
- to see that the presi-
dent respects the wishes
of Congress. The voters are
watching.

Saving CLAS is Machen's responsibility


here is a budget shortfall in the College of Liberal
Arts and Sciences that we must deal with.
UF President Bernie Machen said it succinctly
in a letter to the faculty last month: "(CLAS) expendi-
tures for the current year are projected to exceed rev-
enues by $4 million." That is new debt, as he calls it, and
somehow the college has to avoid incurring it.
As most of you know, the now-infamous five-year
plan will prevent that budget deficit by, among other
things, reducing several departments within the col-
lege. When this plan was unveiled last month, as my
father says, the feces hit the oscillator.
Some say this plan represents a huge ideological
struggle. Others quip that it's nothing more than an
unfortunate-but-necessary fiscal measure that is getting
blown way out of proportion. Almost no one else has a
clue about what exactly is going on. What is happen-
.ing?
For years, UF has been asking CLAS to do more and
more with less and less money. Now CLAS plans to cut
its budget to fix a.problem the college didn't make and
can't fix and it will seriously hurt the university as a
whole.
At a faculty assembly last week CLAS Dean Neil
Sullivan explained, in his cool New Zealand accent,
that, "When the university student population grows by
1 to 1.5 percent, our college population and the courses
we're required to teach grow by 2 to 3 percent."
This means the principal cause of the budget deficit
is a bureaucratic problem with determining the amount
of money UF allots CLAS, not any inefficiency in how
CLAS operates. This crisis is little more than a reminder
to the dean's office that moneymaking not education,


research or service is the uni-
versity's main concern. So much
for the three missions asserted in
Machen's Strategic Work Plan.
The operating budget for the
entire university last year was
Gerald Liles $2.4 billion. It's hard for a college
The Liles Files student to even begin to compre-
letters@alligator.org hend that scale. The departments
I allocate my budget to include
Ginnie Springs and Pokey Stix.
But I do know that Machen would only need to redis-
tribute 0.17 percent of that budget to cover the CLAS
deficit-- and he has the power to do it.
Under the thinking that produced the five-year
plan changes, CLAS departments will be gutted more
and more as the student population grows. This is
like cutting funding for the football team because too
many people go to the games. Classes will be larger.
Professors (those who stay) will be harried, demoral-
ized and discontented. The diversity of courses offered
will decrease.
I encourage everyone regardless of what college
you're in to stop by Tigert Hall this week and ask
President Machen, by note or in person, to reconsider
the five-year plan. Or soon and very soon it will
not mean as much to be part of the Gator Nation.
Many slept outside to take part in ESPN College
GameDay. Take five minutes to be a part of keeping UF
(the school you go to) a university to be proud of. Go
Gators, get up and go!

Letters to the Editor
Fair Tax would benefit all taxpayers
I was nodding in agreement to Todd
Portnowitz's Friday column, until I reached
the fifth paragraph. Like most opponents of
the "Fair Tax," Portnowitz can't criticize it
without distorting the idea or lying.
First of all, the Fair Tax would not be an
additional tax, levied on top of the income
tax. It would replace the income tax com-
pletely, obviating the need for a huge tax
bureaucracy.
Second, under the Fair Tax, families
would be reimbursed to the tune of $2,000
to $7,000 a month for taxes paid on neces-
sities like food and clothing. In other words,
you.wouldn't start paying taxes until you
started buying things you don't really need.
Finally, the idea that the Fair Tax serves the
richest 20 percent of taxpayers is ludicrous, as
they are the people who buy the most stuff.
I suggest Portnowitz do more research
before writing about something he knows
nothing about.

Rude fans embarrass Gators everywhere
As a member-of the Gator Nation, I'm em-
barrassed to have witnessed some very taste-
less behavior from some very crude Gator
fans during the Homecoming game.
Being Gators, we fans represent UF its
values and its character. So when a few fans
screamed, "I hope you break your leg in three
places!" to an Louisiana State University
player or "Go back to your FEMA trailers!"
when LSU turned over the ball, they made
UF look like a school full of insensitive, class-
less jerks.
Moreover, this group of crude fans called
LSU players racist names like "Chinky bas-
tardc" and "yellow bitches" all within
earshot of a large group of Asian-American
students.
Again, this showed disrespect and insen-
sitivity, and it reflected poorly on UE
There's a difference between "Rowdy
Reptiles" and "Rude Reptiles." I hope Gator
fans everywhere remember that.

Exposure to booze causes alcoholism
"Exposure to booze stops binge drink-
ing," Daniel Burroughs' Wednesday column,
was as irresponsible as it was inaccurate.
The column complained about UF's re-
quired alcohol course, which includes sev-
eral assigned articles freshmen must read
before taking the final quiz. How appalling
- being required to read! In college, of all
places!
Besides, MyStudentBody.com only as-
signs articles based on which questions you
get wrong on the introductory quiz so
you're only reading material you didn't
already know.
I was equally bothered by Burroughs'
flippant suggestion that parents provide
alcohol to minors.
He proposed this as a solution to alcohol
abuse, claiming that by exposing teenagers
to alcohol sooner, parents would kill the
mystery that makes young adults drink in'
the first place. But underage'drinking has
many contributing factors.
Besides, the younger you are when first


exposed to alcohol, the greater your risk of
alcohol abuse and dependence.

SG delivers valuable services to students
I noticed a glaring flaw in Patrick Barrett's
Thursday column, "Hey, SG: Where's my free
burrito?" Barrett wants "a half-pound of beefy,
cheesy satisfaction waiting for you when you
get off the bus."
But if Student Government paid for free
Taco Bell, it wouldn't have any money left to
pay for that bus. But at least you could have a
yummy burrito while you walked to campus.
I'm sure SG is quite good at wasting stu-
dents' money, but Barrett seems to think it all
goes into some black hole somewhere. In real-
ity, it pays for all kinds of benefits that thou-
sands of students use every day. That's worth
much more than a Taco Bell burrito to me.

Gators tied for first


after Mississippi trip


By JOSH ARMSTRONG
Alligator Writer
jarmstrong@alligator.org

On their way home from
Mississippi, the Gators also re-
turned to another familiar spot:
first place.
The No. 8 UF volleyball
team (14-2, 7-1 Southeastern
Conference) swept Mississippi
on Sunday just before SEC
leading No. 10 LSU lost 3-1 to
Alabama. LSU and UF are now
tied for first place in the confer-
ence standings.

"Her name will not be all
over our record books, but
the success of our team
this season will have a lot
to do with Stefanie Doug-
las."
Mary Wise
UF volleyball coach

Despite battling lingering
knee problems, senior outside
hitter Stefanie Douglas had a
career-high 13 kills on just 16 at-
tacks in UF's 30-26, 30-19, 30-25
win against the Rebels.
"Her name will not be all
over our record books," UF
coach Mary Wise said in a ra-
dio interview, "but the success
of our team this season will
have a lot to do with Stefanie
Douglas?'
Douglas played in three
games for only the fourth time
this season Sunday to relieve


junior outside hitter Amber
McCray, who sat out with a sore
shoulder.
Douglas earned a starting
nod after an impressive eight-
kill performance Friday at
Mississippi State. The Gators
swept the Bulldogs 30-28, 30-26,
30-23.
McCray missed both match-
es this weekend but is expected
to return to practice and play
against Arkansas on Friday.
Wise said Douglas' perfor-
mance came as little surprise.
"Every day, she has to go
out in practice and be the other
team's offense," Wise said. "Our
players Will tell you she's pretty
hard to defend."
UF's defense recorded seven
blocks and held the Rebels to a
.212 hitting percentage.
Junior middle blocker
Kisya Killingsworth matched
Douglas' 13 kills and added
three blocks.
Junior setter Angie McGinnis
had a strong offensive showing
with 10 kills and 39 assists.
She also had a solo block in
game two that seemed to steal
Mississippi's momentum for
the remainder of the match.
"I just thought that that was
the point where we took the
wind out of their sails," Wise
said.
Sophomore middle blocker
Kelsey Bowers had only one
kill on four attacks, but she was
more effective from the back

UF boasts second-largest crowd, wins 13th consecutive home game


FOOT, from page 1

gesture and a series of fist pounds as he exited into
the south end zone.
"That was one of the best environments I have
ever been privileged to be a part of," Meyer-said
of the 90,714 fans, the second-largest home turnout
ever. "I want to thank our crowd, thank our student
body and thank our homecoming people, because
I'll put that [atmosphere] up with anybody in the
country."
They love you here as long as you win, and
Meyer has done that this season. The Gators danced
and pranced and hopped and skipped afterward,
and whynot? UF is 6-0 for the first time since 1996,
and you know what happened that season.
"I don't know where we will be in the polls,"
defensive tackle Ray McDonald said before
Sunday's polls were released. "That's up to [vot-
ers], but hopefully we'll be No. 1."
They did actually play a game Saturday. There
was then*No. 9 LSU, which had downed the Gators
in three of their previous four meetings. There was
Tigers quarterback JaMarcus Russell, all 6-foot-6 of
him, with a passer rating that ranked first in the
SEC prior to the game. Then there were broken
LSU dreams, a distraught Russell and one unani-
mous UF message for the Baton Rouge faithful:
Geaux home.
"That was one of the main reasons I came here
- to play in the Swamp and to get a win against
LSU," Leak said. "For it to be my last homecoming


- it's one of my best memories."
It was the Leak-Tebow crossover show and LSU
overplayed, then overpaid.
It was the Ryan Smith clinic, sparking unfound-
ed rumors that his interceptions are now being sold
in two packs, at local Walgreens.
It was the freakish Reggie Nelson looking
more like the product of a Roswell, New Mexico,
warehouse than an SEC safety with his blocked
punt and fierce hits.
The defense was at it again, and somehow felt
unappreciated throughout it all.
"I felt like we were be-
ing overlooked," linebacker
Brandon Siler said. "That's how
the whole defense felt. We came
out and played with a little chip
on our shoulders. We felt disre-
spected."
Leak And theri, of course, it was
the crowd. Texas A&M may
have the 12th man, but Saturday the Swamp had

Gators defense, special teams force six turnovers


By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org

These turnovers counted.
One year after eliciting five
LSU turnovers in vain, UF forced
six in the rematch.
And it was this constant ha-
rassment of LSU whether by
forced fumbles, interceptions or
a blocked punt that set the
tone for a UF team that suddenly
looks like a legitimate national
title contender. The No. 2 Gators
won 23-10.
"Outsiders don't realize this,
but as a defense, we know we
have a lot of playmakers on our
side of the ball," cornerback
Reggie Lewis said. "We see it ev-
ery practice, and it shows off on
Saturdays"
While the Gators might not
be great offensively, they are cer-
tainly making up for it in their
other phases.
UF recorded three intercep-
tions, recovered two fumbles and
blocked a punt, setting a definitive
tone throughout the LSU match.
Still, the Gators' first turnover
was more fortune than anything
else.
LSU's Chevis Jackson inexpli-
cably whiffed on a first-quarter
punt return. UF's Lutrell Alford
then pounced on the loose ball
and the Gators scored a touch-
down six plays later..
UF's next forced turnover
altered the game's entire com-
plexion.


Tim Casey/ Alligator Staff
Safety Reggie Nelson blocks a punt by LSU's Chris Jackson during the third quarter of the Gators' 23-10
win against LSU on Saturday. It was one of six turnovers forced by the Gators.


LSU quarterback JaMarcus
Russell had the Gators backed
up on their own 1-yard line. But
Russell bobbled the snap on the
17th play of what could have been
a touchdown drive. UF's Brandon
Siler recovered.


"I think if they would have
scored, it would have been tough
on us," Lewis said. "That was
huge for the defense to get on that
ball, and that was a big change-
around for the game."
LSU would get the ball back


shortly, but Russell quickly di-
rected a pass into the arms of
cornerback Ryan Smith.
Smith finished the game with
two interceptions and now has
four in two games. Tony Joiner
recorded UF's third interception


to seal the game late in the fourth
quarter.
"[Smith has] adjusted, well
[since his playing days at Utah],"
Coach Urban Meyer said. "The
best thing going for Ryan Smith is
his relationship with [secondary]
coach [Chuck] Heater.
"Those two are on the same
page and have been together for
a long time. It's like a fatler-son
deal."
Yet Smith could have eas-
ily finished the game with four
interceptions. He dropped two
easy ones; he also dropped a po-
tential interception at the end of
last week's Alabama game.
"There's more talk about drop-
ping the two than there is catch-
ing the two," Smith said. "There's
no problem with that. I've got to
make those plays."
Freshman Riley Cooper
- huh? joined the turnover
fray on the opening kickoff of
the second half. LSU's Early
Doucet bobbled the kick just
outside LSU's goal line and was
subsequently crushed by the UF
receiver.
The ball squirted into the
end zone where UF's Jermaine
McCollum tackled Trindon
Holliday for a safety.
UF safety Reggie Nelson con-
tinued his campaign for the Jim
Thorpe Award by blocking an
LSU punt in the third quarter.
"If I had a draft choice, I might
take Reggie Nelson No. 1," Meyer
said. "I think we have the best
free safety in college football."


UF unknowns nail Tigers' coffin


* FRESHMAN RILEY COOPER AND SOPHOMORE
LOUIS MURPHY BOTH MADE BIG PLAYS.

By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
dtreat@alligator.org

Sometimes one play or player can change a game.
In UF's 23-10 victory against LSU on Saturday, it was
two players making two plays, who helped ensure that
the Gators remained perfect.
In the span of just under 3 minutes, Riley Cooper and
Louis Murphy made plays that resulted in a Gators check-
mate, widening UF's lead from 14-7 to 23-7.
Coupled with a Gators touchdown with 22 seconds
remaining in the first half, UF dominated the middle 10
minutes of the game.
"Lou Holtz always tells me, and I talk to him about
once a week, he says, 'The last five minutes of the first
half and the first five minutes of the second half could de-
termine the game,'" UF coach Urban Meyer said. "It's all
momentum when you go in and when you come out."
On the kickoff to start the second half, LSU's Early
Doucet muffed the catch and was obliterated by Cooper
on the three-yard line.
Doucet fumbled the ball, and it was recovered in the
end zone by the Tigers' Trindon Holliday for a safety, giv-
ing UF a 16-7 lead.
"Before kickoff, I'm just thinking about going down
there as fast as I can," Cooper said. "When I saw the guy
start juggling around a little bit, it was just a perfect op-
portunity for me to hit him."
Doucet never knew what hit him.


"I dropped the ball, picked it up, looked up and
boom," Doucet said. "I never saw him."
Added Cooper: "I wanted to hit him and I did."
The Gators got the ball on the ensuing free kick, and a
little-known player again made the big play.
With Tim Tebow in the shotgun, LSU's safeties cheated
in.
Tebow faked a run that caused the defensive backfield
to bite, pulled back and threw to a wide-open Murphy for
a 35-yard touchdown that proved to be UF's final score of
the game.

I went to the bench and I was like, 'Did I
score?' and Jemalle [Cornelius] was like,
'Yeah you scored.'
Louis Murphy
UF wide receiver

The catch was the first of Murphy's career, and there
wasn't a defender anywhere near him as he stumbled into
the end zone.
"He's our weapon," Meyer joked. "We saved him for
that."
Murphy later caught another pass for seven yards, but
he didn't even realize that he had scored on the touch-
down pass.
"I didn't know I was in the end zone," Murphy said.
"Everybody started telling me to run off the field because
the field-goal team was coming on. I went to the bench
and I was like, 'Did I score?' and Jemalle [Cornelius] was
like, 'Yeah you scored,' so I was just happy just to score, or
at least catch the ball my first catch."

Wise said. "She can play well in the front row [and
then] go to the back row and be just as good."

The Gators held the strong-serving Bulldogs to
only three aces.

UF is now 43-0 under Wise

Though the Gators sport a road,
record of 6-1, it is the first time this season they return
from a road stretch unscathed.

and another at South Carolina earlier this season.
"It helps when you get a road mentality that you

Gators return from Kentucky on top of SEC East


* UF DOWNED VANDERBILT, THEN
TIED THE WILDCATS.

By RACHEL ROBINS
Alligator Writer
No home-field advantage? No problem.
The No. 21 UF soccer team- (8-4-2, 4-1-1
Southeastern Conference) finished the week-
end 1-0-1 after defeating Vanderbilt and tying
Kentu.ky in consecutive road games. The
Gators are undefeated on the road in SEC
play.
"That's two tough teams on the road," UF
coach Becky Burleigh said. "We would like to


come out with two wins. We just got to take
care of business that's the bottom line."
There were some hiccups on the vic-
tory road back to Gainesville, especially in
Sunday's game against Kentucky.
It took two overtime periods to complete
the match, and the scoreboard still read 0-0.
Following the trend that they have established
for most Sundays, the Gators came out slug-
gish in the opening half, only attempting two
shots on goal.
"We just have to play smarter soccer,"
sophomore midfielder Ameera Abdullah said.
"Sometimes that doesn't mean as much run-
ning as we normally would like to, but we just
have to keep the ball in different ways."


It didn't improve much in the second half,
as the Gators were only able to put up three
Shots on goal.
"We are having trouble
S with our final connect-
ing pass onto the goal,"
Abdullah said. "Sometimes
we have a tendency to rush
those. We had good scoring
chances, and I thought that
Bin some parts of the game
Burleigll
we dominated. It's just one
of those games you just couldn't put it in."
However, the Gators got a great start
to their weekend before they even played
Kentucky.


OnFriday, Kentucky beat South Carolina 1-
0 to catapult UF into the lead in the SEC East, a
fact that leaves Burleigh unfazed.
"We have a standard that we want to play
to," Burleigh said. "Whether we are leading
the East or chasing it, we want to play to that
standard. We need to try and win out, and
that's our goal."
UF did its job to secure that ranking by
defeating Vanderbilt on Friday, also by a score
of 1-0.
The Gators came out attacking, and in the
sixth minute, got their reward a goal by
Abdullah.
Abdullah and Stacy Bishop now have six
goals each, tying them for the team lead.

Tebow jumper nets first career touchdown pass


By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
nzaccardi@alligator.org.

Just call him "Air" Tebow.
Known to most UF fans for his straight-
ahead running style, UF freshman quarter-
back Tim Tebow showed off another part of
his arsenal Saturday his jump shot.
He.accounted for all three of UF's touch-
downs in its 23-10 win
against LSU, scoring once on
a 1-yard run and then on two
passes.
On both throws, Tebow
Football faked a quarterback sneak,
stepped back and found a
wide-open receiver.
The first reminded Tebow of his prep bas-
ketball days.
On the LSU 1-yard line with 27 seconds
remaining in the first half, Tebow made his
move forward, fooling the defense into think-
ing he was going for his second 1-yard score
of the game. He then moved back, double-
pumped and found tight end Tate Casey fall-
ing into the back of the end zone.
"I thought it was pretty good-looking,"
Casey said of the catch, which was Tebow's
first touchdown pass of his career and Casey's
first catch of any kind this season. "[But] it felt
ugly, to be honest with you."
Tebow held onto the ball for an extra sec-
ond to allow Casey to get open, throwing the
ball in jump-shot fashion while trying not to
land for what would have been a traveling call
on the hardwood.
LSU's preseason All-America safety LaRon


Landry held Casey up at the line at first, but
the 6-foot-7, 240-pound junior ripped through
the defender.
"We'd rather our tight end not fumble
around and fall down and do siL- pushups.
do a cartwheel then get up mnd tr. tro catch it'
UF coach Urban Meyer joked.' Did the have
video back in 1913? I think that's where we got
that. We did that in Utah agaih_ t .ir Force in
triple overtime one time to i iu- the game"
But Tebow thought the play had a little
more Michael Jordan to it.
"I haven't hit a shot in a while," said Tebow,
who finished the game with nine rushes for 35
yards. "I need to get back to doing that. Its a
lot of fun. I love playing basketball, so hope-
fully that had a little bit to do with that."
The Gators worked on the secret play all
throughout last week. Casey told his parents
to look out for a weird play, but could not re-
veal exactly what the play was.
Tebow would fool LSU again after halftime
when he found Louis Murphy for a 35-yarder,
the sophomore's first career catch. Tebow
again took a step forward to fool the defense.
Murphy ran down the left sideline all alone,
giving Tebow a zone that most of the 90,714 at
the Swamp could have slipped a ball into.
UF coach Urban Meyer called the play a
helmet throw, as if Tebow could have taken off
his helmet and thrown it. When asked about
his electrifying intensity that fires up the fans
after the game, Tebow went Jordan again.
"It feels like they're part of us, like they're
our sixth man or our 12th-man," Tebow
said, correcting himself.
Only one question remains: Was Billy
Donovan watching?

"If he's out there the whole time, you are
never getting that stuff communicated,"
Mullen said.
"I think there is nothing better than
in the middle of a series to be able to get
your quarterback to the sideline and say,
'They've changed their blitz package. This
is what they are doing. This is the check we
are going to go to. This is why. Get back out


there onto the field.'"
At first glance, this is far from a true
two-quarterback offense. UF coach Urban
Meyer has dubbed Leak the starter and the
senior takes a vast majority of the snaps.
But when you consider how many
meaningful plays in which Tebow finds
the ball in his hands, things suddenly don't
look so skewed.
While Leak was under center for most
of the game against LSU, Tebow passed for
two scores and ran for another, accounting

Believe it or not, that was a good thing

After Saturday's performance, teams are

Tebow in their game plans.
Nobody has had an answer for Tebow
yet, and LSU was actually afraid of Tebow.
Need proof?
When Tebow faked a third-quarter run

toward the line of scrimmage to try to take

Meyer downplays UF's ascent in pol


By LOUIS ANASTASIS
4. Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org

Urban Meyer calls it "Florida
Nonsense." You can call it national title
hype.
The Gators earned a huge boost in
the public-relations department Saturday
as they moved into the No. 2 Associated
Press poll.
UF is ranked No. 3 in the USA Today
Coaches' Poll and suddenly finds itself
in the midst of the national champion-
ship race after bouncing LSU 23-10 in the
Swamp on Saturday.
"I kept hearing, 'Can we stay focused?'
and 'What's down the road?'" Meyer said.
"We never discussed it, [but] I will address
it now. [It's] the Florida Nonsense, the big
school, the Internet nonsense."
So what exactly is Florida Nonsense?
"It's the media. It's the fans," Meyer
said. "It's just like the Notre Dame non-
sense or the USC nonsense."
The Gators (6-0, 4-0 Southeastern
Conference) moved past Auburn which
was upset by unranked Arkansas in
both polls. But the somewhat surprising
development was UF leapfrogging both
West Virginia and Southern California
in the AP poll. All three teams are unde-
feated, but the Trojans have struggled in
consecutive games against Washington
State and Washington, respectively.
Meanwhile, West Virginia has yet to play
a top-25 team.
In reality, it is the Coaches' poll that
truly matters. The initial BCS rankings

Tim Casey/ Alligator Staff
UF freshman quarterback Tim Tebow listens to instructions from Coach Urban Meyer dur-
ing the LSU game. Sunday, Meyer reiterated his disdain for national title talk.


Tebow, Leak thriving in two-quarterback system


T he idea of a two-quarterback system
has been scoffed at by coaches and
football gurus for years.
Surely, receivers can't develop chemistry
with two quarterbacks.
When you use two quarterbacks, how
can either get into any kind of rhythm?
If you shuffle quarterbacks, won't both
be nervous that any miscue could lead to a
seat on the bench?
Former UF coach Steve Spurrier ran a
two-quarterback system in the late '90s with
mild success.
But this isn't Jesse Palmer and Doug
Johnson.
This is Chris Leak and Tim Tebow.
This is the experienced senior with ri-


diculous accuracy
and a knack for the
deep pass and the
true freshman who
runs with reckless
Bryan Jones abandon, making
Bryan Out Loud linebackers and safe-
bjones@alligator.org ties look like kickers
and punters.
Leak and Tebow
aren't battling each other. They are compli-
menting each other.
"It is kind of a unique situation because
they are very different talent-wise," of-
fensive coordinator Dan Mullen said. "The
difference in talent of those two really opens
up some windows within how you package


things.
"They look at all the positives of it."
Just consider this:
If opposing defenses spent a whole week
preparing for Tebow instead of Leak, would
the freshman still be able to come in and the
run ball down their throats?
If Tebow doesn't act as an offensive spark
plug and pick up crucial first downs, does
Leak get a chance to open up the offense and
continue his success?
Mullen said one advantage of using two
quarterbacks is the ability to take one quar-
terback off the field in the middle of a series
and discuss what he needs to do to attack
the defense.

Buses carry more riders, even on Sunday By GEORGIA BUCKHALTER Alligator Contributing Writer Gainesville's bus system is serving more UF students on more days of the week, according to a count at the end of the Regional Transit System's fiscal year. RTS boasted a ridership of 8.6 million this year, up half a million from last year's figures. Also part of this trend is RTS' recent addition of Sunday bus service, which has experienced surprisingly high ridership in its first six weeks of operation. "In the beginning our goal was to transport 15 passengers per hour, but from day one we'vebeen carrying an average Local of 17 passengers per hour," said NeWS RTS Director Jesus Gomez. These productivity figures are phenomenal at such an early stage in the Sunday bus program, Gomez said. "The first Sunday buses just started running a month and a half ago, and RTS didn't expect to hit the 15-passenger-per-hour average until the end of our two-year pilot run," Gomez said. Bob Miller, chairman of the UF committee that recommends how much students should pay for transportation as part of their tuition, is optimistic that the Sunday bus program will continue to grow. "Initially students have this '7-11 Syndrome' because they are so used to pulling right up to the front of a store and hopping out," Miller said.

About 40,000 people attended UF's 83rd annual Growl event, which is billed as the world's largest student-run pep rally. The show's yearly staples -like student skits, up-and-coming comedians and fireworks -were featured in keeping with the event's "Relive the Tradition" theme. Gaffigan, known for his roles on TV shows like "Sex and the City," opened his Gaffigan performance with a joke about meeting UF president Bernie Machen. "What a drunk," he said, adding that Machen was a "fabulous kisser." In a press conference Thursday, Gaffigan said most of his jokes would be relatively new, but his Growl performance included his well-known riff on Hot Pockets. Comedian Gabriel Iglesias, who is known for his stint on NBC's show "Last Comic Standing," opened for Gaffigan with jokes about the 2004 hurricane season, saying it was "the first time white people washed up in Cuba." Iglesias also described the "five levels of fat," placing himself in the fourth category, called "Fluffy." Gaffigan was paid $42,500 for his appearance, while Iglesias pocketed $16,000.

.1 4, ALLIGATOR E MONDAY, OCTOBER 9,'2006 CLAS DEBT Faculty assernbh looks, to different plan for debt By CHAD SMITH AlIigator Writer csmith@alligator.org Faculty members in UF's College of Liberal Atts and Sciences have voted to "set aside" the college's five-year. plan, which was designed to eliminate a $4 million debt. CLAS Dean Neil Sullivan said the CLAS Assembly, which offers him advice, wants to look into other ways to fix the college's budget troubles. Now that. the assembly has voted against the plan, Sullivan will discuss the decision with UF Provost Janie Fouke. Faculty members didn't feel enough time was taken in drafting the plan, Sullivan said. They also felt it didn't demonstrate shared governance -the idea that administrators and faculty should both contribute in the decision-making process. Sullivan said he is open to changes. The current draft, which Sullivan helped write, calls for financial and personnel reductions in departments including English and mathematics by 2010. In_ July, UF administrators paid off the college's debt from previous years, which totaled about $4 *ilion. But CLAS is already projected to rack up another $4 million debt during the rent school year. Fouke told Sullivan to get the college out of debt by the 2008-09 academic year. "We cannot get through this cuts," Sullivan said. "We cannot get through out some cuts. He said the rising number o mitted to the university has put sure on the college, since most; to take some core classes in CLA Non-CLAS majors take 59 seats in CLAS courses.

Alumni, students unite in Homecoming parade tradition E SISTER HAZEL AND SEN. BILL NELSON RODE IN CONVERTIBLES FOR THE EVENT. By JOEY CHINDAMO Alligator Writer jchindamo@aIIigator.org UF's Homecoming weekend is designed to bring alumni back to town, but that didn't stop the rest of the Gainesville community from coming out to the annual parade Friday. This parade marked the annual event's 83rd year, and 143 groups march or rode in it on the first day of UF's Homecoming festivities. Various student and local organizations participated in the parade. Some rode on custom-made floats, while others walked or danced their way down University Avenue. Some groups made a party of the occasion. The UF Surf Club had dozens of people on its party-on-wheels float, complete with a surf-rock band and beach-bar look. High school marching bands from around the area, ranging in size from hundreds of young musicians to just a few dozen, performed in the parade as well. Members of the Gainesville-bom band Sister Hazel were the parade's grand marshals, riding near the front of the parade in convertibles. For photos of the parade and other Homecoming events, see pg. 14. Student Government executives and Florida Sen. Bill Nelson also made appearances in the parade. Jason Jowers, from Keystone Heights, came to the parade with his wife and 3-year-old daughter, Mackenzie. "She's excited for the parade, but we're waiting for (the game)," Jowers said. A high school bluegrass band called Sweetwater Special performed for people walking on University Avenue. "We tryto openpeople'smindsto bluegrass," said Michael Lesousky, the band's mandolin player. Prior to the parade's start, more than 1,000 people participated in the Gator Gallop, which began at the James G. Pressly Stadium and continued down West University Avenue. The Gator Gallop is a 25-year-old tradition in which people pay to run in a two-mile race. For some, this year's parade marked milestones in their lives. Kristin Millson, a UF graduate from Winter Park, said it was her 36th consecutive Homecoming. "I came up (Thursday) night for the parade and to see my family and friends," Millson said. ror aeiaiis aDOUT TfiS exciting opporTunly, contaCT uri ADramS, University Florida Army ROTC at 352-392-1395 or abramsg@ufl.edu Voter Registration Rally When: October 10, 2006 (The last day to register to vote for the November 7th General Election) Where: Gainesville Downtown Community Plaza Time: 6pm-8pm Special performance by the Gainesville Community Band!

MONDAY, OCTOBER 9, 2006 E ALLIGATOR, 5 HAPPENSTANCE+ Cheap piano ignites like a winter campfire A Gainesville Fire Rescue firefighter douses a flaming piano on Northwest Third Avenue early Sunday morning. The usually serene street, with its arching oak limbs and liberalminded college students, ignited shortly after bars closed., The loud music from decked-out cars and the live band playing outside brought a flood of revelers from an already overflowing party into the street, where they danced and flung glow sticks from one side to the other in a blue and green neon shower. As the celebration escalated, a piano with broken keys and useless pedals was dragged into the street for a performance. GROWL, from page 1 leadership honorary Growl also featured Ken Block and Drew Copeland, of Gainesville rock band Sister Hazel, singing the national anthem with the University Gospel Choir. Student skits included the traditional parodies of rival football programs and imitations of popular television commercials. A UF version of Miller Lite's "Man Gator Law" commercials was also featured,, W using a council of university figures that included Student Body President John Boyles and football players Brandon Siler and Tim Tebow. The council passed three "Gator Laws" concerning issues like rooting for other football teams, body paint and studying on game days. Earlier in the show, UF basketball player Lee Humphrey crowned Nina Vaghaiwalla as Homecoming queen. She blew kisses and waved as she was crowned. Several winners of Gator Growl Talent Night performed in the show, including vocal-category winner Vivian Lamolli and dance troupe Soundstage, the winner of the dance category. In between ,the comedians' performances, *head football coach Urban Meyer and seniors from the Gators football team took the stage for recognition. "This is a special group of seniors," Meyer said. "They've done everything we asked." Gators quarterback Chris Leak, who received a standing ovation before his introduction, took the microphone to thunderous applause and cheers. "We expect this to be the loudest stadium in college football, ever," Leak shouted to the crowd. UF alumna Jill Garcia, 53, said she grew up two blocks from the stadium and has seen plenty of Growl events. This year's show was "one of the better ones," she said. But sports management senior Kenny Zaron said Growl was not what he expected. Zaron said the show would have been more enjoyable if different comedians had performed. "They could have paid someone better," he said. "I mean, FSU got Stephen Colbert for like 8,000 people, and I think we can do better than that." "This is a special group of seniors. They've done everything we asked." Urban Meyer UF football coach History senior Eric Joyner, who had bought the piano for $10, said a couple of his friends had been talking about breaking it or burning it. "They decided they were going to get it from a house a block away and set it on fire in the middle of the road," Joyner said. His friends and other partiers soaked the piano in lighter fluid, lit it and danced around the flames like it was a winter campfire. One man slammed on the burning keys as a woman jumped on top of the piano, shimmying against the fire. "Everybody was going nuts," Joyner said. "It was ridiculous." -TIM HUSSIN City could pick up bus tab BUS, from page 1 Turlington, park and go to the library." Miller emphasizes the convenience of bus transportation in lieu of-driving without passengers. He cites safety, reliability, limited parking and high gas prices as reasons to use mass transit. "Now that students have the convenience of bus travel seven days a week, we can really propose the philosophy that students can come to UF's campus, go to school here and do it without a car," Miller said. At a cost of $312,635 a year, the Sunday bus service trial run is half funded by the transportation access fees paid by UF students and half subsidized by a grant from the Florida Department of Transportation. Once the contracts end and the pilot program is reviewed, the Gainesville City Commission will choose whether to step in and keep RTS buses running on Sundays. The addition of Sunday service was not a part of RTS's longterm development plan until 2009, Gomez said. Of the 10 Sunday buses, nine operate off campus from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and the East-West Circulator operates on campus from 10 a.m. until midnight. The more popular Sunday destinations are off-campus locations like the Oaks Mall and Butler Plaza.

6, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, OCTOBER 9, 2006 Editorial Give us a break Homecoming crowd rapes, pillages UF hey came. They saw. They left their crap all over We're talking about alumni, of course, who poured into Gainesville by the thousands for last Saturday's Homecoming game. We love them as much as the next student, and probably for the same reason -their money but to be honest, we're getting a little tired of the routine. It goes something like this. Starting on Friday, old people invade our sleepy little town. They clog our intersections with their cars and park in our bike lanes. They take all the good tables in our favorite restaurants. On Saturday, they camp out on our front lawns, throwing footballs, grilling hamburgers and drinking Bud Light -at noon! Once the game starts, they desert their shantytowns -tents, folding chairs and mounds of garbage -to march to the Swamp and boo our starting quarterback. And then, until next weekend, they're gone. Wham, bam, thank you ma'am. Now, don't get us wrong. If you're middle-aged, bored and just dying to visit your alma mater, we're more than happy to host you, even if you do tend to trash the place a little. We'll probably do the same thing after we graduate. But at least by then we'll have robots to clean up after us. And hamburgers in pill form -no messy grill required! But that's all in the future. For the time being, we'll settle for alumni who don't blitz Gainesville. like a Viking horde once a week. Or, better yet, a police force that doesn't look the other way when Gramps beaches his Cadillac across three parking spaces. Write him a ticket, guys. Please. Of course, that's wishful thinking. UF loves its alumni -in fact, this is their school, their town. We just happen to live here. But it's nice to dream, isn't it? FEMA follies eorge, you're doing a heck of a job. Really. First, the president ignored warnings about New Orleans' shaky levees. Then he sat on his hands as hundreds died in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. And now, more than a year later, he refuses to clean up the Federal Emergency Management Agency. We just don't get it. Last month, Congress passed a bill requiring, among other things, minimum qualifications for future FEMA directors: five years of executive experience and a "knowledge of emergency management." Sounds pretty reasonable. After all, no one wants another political appointee like Michael Brown, who worked for the International Arabian Horse Association before coming to FEMA. The president signed the bill into law Wednesday. But according to a "signing statement" released by the White House, he won't obey the part about minimum qualifications. In other words, if he wants to put Barney -the first terrier -in charge of FEMA, he'll do it. Screw the law. Rep. Katherine Harris voted for the FEMA bill. So did Reps. Corrine Brown and Cliff Stearns of Alachua County. Now it's up to them -and their colleagues on Capitol Hill -to see that the president respects the wishes of Congress.

Opinions ~o2A {14{ { Column Saving CLAS is Mac here is a budget shortfall in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences that we must deal with. UF President Bernie Machen said it succinctly in a letter to the faculty last month: "(CLAS) expenditures for the current year are projected to exceed revenues by $4 million." That is new debt, as he calls it, and somehow the college has to avoid incurring it. As most of you know, the now-infamous five-year plan will prevent that budget deficit by, among other things, reducing several departments within the college. When this plan was unveiled last month, as my father says, the feces hit the oscillator. Some say this plan represents a huge ideological struggle. Others quip that it's nothing more than an unfortunate-but-necessary fiscal measure that is getting blown way out of proportion. Almost no one else has a clue about what exactly is going on. What is happening? For years, UF has been asking CLAS to do more and more with less and less money. Now CLAS plans to cut its budget to fix a problem the college didn't make and can't fix -and it will seriously hurt the university as a whole. At a faculty assembly last week CLAS Dean Neil Sullivan explained, in his cool New Zealand accent, that, "When the university student population grows by 1 to 1.5 percent, our college population and the courses we're required to teach grow by 2 to 3 percent." This means the principal cause of the budget deficit is a bureaucratic problem with determining the amount of money UF allots CLAS, not any inefficiency in how CLAS operates. This crisis is little more than a reminder to the dean's office that moneymaking -not education, ALLIGATOR www.a I Iigator.org/opin ions T)WA W0NVS6T l W'IT1 15ASalThAU-ASON3 COMING UF I F )A4AYU.O 6IAe6 ien's responsibility Gerald Liles The Liles Files letters@alligator.org research or service -is the university's main concern. So much for the three missions asserted in Machen's Strategic Work Plan. The operating budget for the entire university last year was $2.4 billion. It's hard for a college student to even begin to comprehend that scale. The departments I allocate my budget to include Ginnie Springs and Pokey Stix. But I do know that Machen would only need to redistribute 0.17 percent of that budget to cover the CLAS deficit -and he has the power to do it. Under the thinking that produced the five-year plan changes, CLAS departments will be gutted more and more as the student population grows. This is like cutting funding for the football team because too many people go to the games. Classes will be larger. Professors (those who stay) will be harried, demoralized and discontented. The diversity of courses offered will decrease. I encourage everyone -regardless of what college you're in -to stop by Tigert Hall this week and ask President Machen, by note or in person, to reconsider the five-year plan. Or soon -and very soon -it will not mean as much to be part of the Gator Nation. Many slept outside to take part in ESPN College GameDay. Take five minutes to be a part of keeping UF (the school you go to) a university to be proud of. Go Gators, get up and go! Gerald Liles is a history and religion junior.

MONDAY, OCTOBER 9, 2006 R ALLIGATOR, 7 Letters to the Editor Fair Tax would benefit all taxpayers I was nodding in agreement to Todd Portnowitz's Friday column, until I reached the fifth paragraph. Like most opponents of the "Fair Tax," Portnowitz can't criticize it without distorting the idea or lying. First of all, the Fair Tax would not be an additional tax, levied on top of the income tax. It would replace the income tax completely, obviating the need for a huge tax bureaucracy. Second, under the Fair Tax, families would be reimbursed -to the tune of $2,000 to $7,000 a month -for taxes paid on necessities like food and clothing. In other words, you wouldn't start paying taxes until you started buying things you don't really need. Finally, the idea that the Fair Tax serves the richest 20 percent of taxpayers is ludicrous, as they are the people who buy the most stuff. I suggest Portnowitz do more research before writing about something he knows nothing about. Rajeev Desikan SFCC student Rude fans embarrass Gators everywhere As a member-of the Gator Nation, I'm embarrassed to have witnessed some very tasteless behavior from some very crude Gator fans during the Homecoming game. Being Gators, we fans represent UF -its values and its character. So when a few fans screamed, "I hope you break your leg in three places!" to an Louisiana State University player or "Go back to your FEMA trailers!" when LSU turned over the ball, they made UF look like a school full of insensitive, classless jerks. Moreover, this group of crude fans called LSU players racist names like "Chinky bastards" and "yellow bitches" -all within earshot of a large group of Asian-American students. Again, this showed disrespect and insensitivity, and it reflected poorly on UP. There's a difference between "Rowdy Reptiles" and "Rude Reptiles." I hope Gator fans everywhere remember that. Leah Villanueva UF alumna Exposure to booze causes alcoholism "Exposure to booze stops binge drinking," Daniel Burroughs' Wednesday column, was as irresponsible as it was inaccurate. The column complained about UF's required alcohol course, which includes several assigned articles freshmen must read before taking the final quiz. How appalling -being required to read! In college, of all places! Besides, MyStudentBody.com only assigns articles based on which questions you get wrong on the introductory quiz -so you're only reading material you didn't already know. I was equally bothered by Burroughs' flippant suggestion that parents .provide alcohol to minors. He proposed this as a solution to alcohol abuse, claiming that by exposing teenagers to alcohol sooner, parents would kill the mystery that makes young adults drink in the first place. But underage drinking has many contributing factors. Besides, the younger you are when first exposed to alcohol, the greater your risk of alcohol abuse and dependence. Meganlynn Flores 4HHP SG delivers valuable services to students I noticed a glaring flaw in Patrick Barrett's Thursday column, "Hey, SG: Where's my free burrito?" Barrett wants "a half-pound of beefy, cheesy satisfaction waiting for you when you get off the bus." But if Student Goverrment paid for free Taco Bell, it wouldn't have any money left to pay for that bus. But at least you could have a yummy burrito while you walked to campus. I'm sure SG is quite good at wasting students' money, but Barrett seems to think it all goes into some black hole somewhere. In reality, it pays for all kinds of benefits that thousands of students use every day. That's worth much more than a Taco Bell burrito to me.

16, ALLIGATOR E MONDAY, OCTOBER 9,2006 Gators tied for first after Mississippi trip By JOSH ARMSTRONG Alligator Writer jarmstrong@aIligator.org On their way home from Mississippi, the Gators also returned to another familiar spot: first place. The No. 8 UF volleyball team (14-2, 7-1 Southeastern Conference) swept Mississippi on Sunday just before SEC leading No. 10 LSU lost 3-1 to Alabama. LSU and UF are now tied for first place in the conference standings. Her name will not be all over our record books, but the success of our team this season will have a lot to do with Stefanie Douglas." Mary Wise UF volleyball coach Despite battling lingering knee problems, senior outside hitter Stefanie Douglas had a career-high 13 kills on just 16 attacks in UF's 30-26, 30-19, 30-25 win against the Rebels. "Her name will not be all over our record books," UF coach Mary Wise said in a radio interview, "but the success of our team this season will have a lot to do with Stefanie Douglas." Douglas played in three games for only the fourth time this season Sunday to relieve junior outside hitter Amber McCray, who sat out with a sore shoulder. Douglas earned a starting nod after an impressive eightkill performance Friday at Mississippi State. The Gators swept the Bulldogs 30-28, 30-26, 30-23. McCray missed both matches this weekend but is expected to return to practice and play against Arkansas on Friday. Wise said Douglas' performance came as little surprise. "Every day, she has to go out in practice and be the othe r team's offense," Wise said. "Our players Will tell you she's pretty hard to defend." UF's defense recorded seven blocks and held the Rebels to a .212 hitting percentage. Junior middle blocker Kisya Killingsworth matched Douglas' 13 kills and added three blocks. Junior setter Angie McGinnis had a strong offensive showing with 10 kills and 39 assists. She also had a solo block in game two that seemed to steal Mississippi's momentum for the remainder of the match. "I just thought that that was the point where we took the wind out of their sails," Wise said. Sophomore middle blocker Kelsey Bowers had only one kill on four attacks, but she was more effective from the back SEE VOLLEYBALL, PAGE 17 UF boasts second-largest crowd, wins 13th consecutive home game FOOT, from page 1 gesture and a series of fist pounds as he exited into the south end zone. "That was one of the best environments I have ever been privileged to be a part of," Meyer-said of the 90,714 fans, the second-largest home turnout ever. "I want to thank our crowd, thank our student body and thank our homecoming people, because I'll put that [atmosphere] up with anybody in the country." They love you here as long as you win, and Meyer has done that this season. The Gators danced and pranced and hopped and skipped afterward, and why not? UF is 6-0 for the first time since 1996, and you know what happened that season. "I don't know where we will be in the polls," defensive tackle Ray McDonald said before Sunday's polls were released. "That's up to [voters], but hopefully we'll be No. 1." They did actually play a game Saturday. There was thenNo. 9 LSU, which had downed the Gators in three of their previous four meetings. There was Tigers quarterback JaMarcus Russell, all 6-foot-6 of him, with a passer rating that ranked first in the SEC prior to the game. Then there were broken LSU dreams, a distraught Russell and one unanimous UF message for the Baton Rouge faithful: Geaux home. "That was one of the main reasons I came here -to play, in the Swamp and to get a win against LSU," Leak said. "For it to be my last homecoming -it's one of my best memories." It was the Leak-Tebow crossover show and LSU overplayed, then overpaid. It was the Ryan Smith clinic, sparking unfounded rumors that his interceptions are now being sold in two packs at local Walgreens. It was the freakish Reggie Nelson -looking more like the product of a Roswell, New Mexico, warehouse than an SEC safety -with his blocked punt and fierce hits. The defense was at it again, and somehow felt unappreciated throughout it all. "I felt like we were being overlooked," linebacker Brandon Siler said. "That's how the whole defense felt. We came out and played with a little chip on our shoulders. We felt disrespected." Leak And theri, of course, it was the crowd.

MONDAY, OCTOBER 9, 2006 0 ALLIGATOR, 17 FOOTBALL Gators defense. special teams force six turnovers By LOUIS ANASTASIS Alligator Staff Writer [anastasis@aligator.org These turnovOrs counted. One year after eliciting five LSU turnovers in vain, UF forced six in the rematch. And it was this constant harassment of LSU -whether by forced fumbles, interceptions or a blocked punt -that set the tone for a UF team that suddenly looks like a legitimate national title contender. The No. 2 Gators won 23-10. "Outsiders don't realize this, but as a defense, we know we have a lot of playmakers on our side of the ball," cornerback Reggie Lewis said. "We see it every practice, and it shows off on Saturdays." While the Gators might not be great offensively, they are certainly making up for it in their other phases. UF recorded three interceptions, recovered two fumbles and blocked a punt, setting a definitive tone throughout the LSU match. Still, the Gators' first turnover was more fortune than anything else. LSU's Chevis Jackson inexplicably whiffed on a first-quarter punt return. UF's Lutrell Alford then pounced on the loose ball and the Gators scored a touchdown six plays later., UF's next forced turnover altered the game's entire complexion. Tim Casey/ Alligator Staff Safety Reggie Nelson blocks a punt by LSU's Chris Jackson during the third quarter of the Gators' 23-10 win against LSU on Saturday. It was one of six turnovers forced by the Gators. LSU quarterback JaMarcus Russell had the Gators backed up on their own 1-yard line. But Russell bobbled the snap on the 17th play of what could have been a touchdown drive. UF's Brandon Siler recovered. "I think if they would have scored, it would have been tough on us," Lewis said. "That was huge for the defense to get on that ball, and that was a big changearound for the game." LSU would get the ball back shortly, but Russell quickly directed a pass into the arms of cornerback Ryan Smith. Smith finished the game with two interceptions and now has four in two games. Tony Joiner recorded UF's third interception to seal the game late in the fourth quarter. "[Smith has] adjusted, well [since his playing days at Utah]," Coach Urban Meyer said. "The best thing going for Ryan Smith is, his relationship with [secondary] coach [Chuck] Heater. "Those two are on the same page and have been together for a long time. It's like a fatlier-son deal." Yet Smith could have easily finished the game with four interceptions. He dropped two easy ones; he also dropped a potential interception at the end of last week's Alabama game. "There's more talk about dropping the two than there is catching the two," Smith said. "There's no problem with that. I've got to make those plays." Freshman Riley Cooper -huh? -joined the turnover fray on the opening kickoff of the second half. LSU's Early Doucet bobbled the kick just outside LSU's goal line and was subsequently crushed by the UF receiver. The ball squirted into the end zone where UF's Jermaine McCollum tackled Trindon Holliday for a safety. UF safety Reggie Nelson continued his campaign for the Jim Thorpe Award by blocking an LSU punt in the third quarter. ."If I had a draft choice, I might take Reggie Nelson No. 1," Meyer said. "I think we have the best free safety in college football." UF unknowns nail Tigers' coffin FRESHMAN RILEY COOPER AND SOPHOMORE LOUIS MURPHY BOTH MADE BIG PLAYS. By DAN TREAT Alligator Staff Writer dtreatealligator.org Sometimes one play or player can change a game. In UF's 23-10 victory against LSU on Saturday, it was two players making two plays, who helped ensure that the Gators remained perfect. In the span of just under 3 minutes, Riley Cooper and Louis Murphy made plays that resulted in a Gators checkmate, widening UF's lead from 14-7 to 23-7. Coupled with a Gators touchdown with 22 seconds remaining in the first half, UF dominated the middle 10 minutes of the game. "Lou Holtz always tells me, and I talk to him about once a week, he says, 'The last five minutes of the first half and the first five minutes of the second half could determine the game,"' UF coach Urban Meyer said. "It's all momentum when you go in and when you come out." On the kickoff to start the second half, LSU's Early Doucet muffed the catch and was obliterated by Cooper on the three-yard line. Doucet fumbled the ball, and it was recovered in the end zone by the Tigers' Trindon Holliday for a safety, giving UF a 16-7 lead. "Before kickoff, I'm just thinking about going down there as fast as I can," Cooper said. "When I saw the guy start juggling around a little bit, it was just a perfect opportunity for me to hit him." Doucet never knew what hit him. "I dropped the ball, picked it up, looked up and boom," Doucet said. "I never saw him." Added Cooper: "I wanted to hit him and I did." The Gators got the ball on the ensuing free kick, and a little-known player again made the big play. With Tim Tebow in the shotgun, LSU's safeties cheated in. Tebow faked a run that caused the defensive backfield to bite, pulled back and threw to a wide-open Murphy for a 35-yard touchdown that proved to be UF's final score of the game. I went to the bench and I was like, 'Did I score? and Jemalle [Cornelius] was like, 'Yeah you scored.' Louis Murphy UF wide receiver The catch was the first of Murphy's career, and there wasn't a defender anywhere near him as he stumbled into the end zone. "He's our weapon," Meyer joked. "We saved him for that." Murphy later caught another pass for seven yards, but he didn't even realize that he had scored on the touchdown pass. "I didn't know I was in the end zone," Murphy said. "Everybody started telling me to run off the field because the field-goal team was coming on. I went to the bench and I was like, 'Did I score?' and Jemalle [Cornelius] was like, 'Yeah you scored,' so I was just happy just to score, or at least catch the ball -my first catch." McGinnis stuffs stat sheets in two wins VOLLEYBALL, from page 16 row with five service aces. "Kelsey is emerging as that all-around player," Wise said, "She can play well in the front row [and then] go to the back row and be just as good." Bowers displayed her front-row abilities Friday against MSU with a team-high 12 kills. The Gators held the strong-serving Bulldogs to only three aces. Freshman defensive specialist Christina Diaz had a career day off the bench with eight digs and three service aces. McGinnis nearly had her third career triple-double with 35 assists, seven kills and eight digs. UP is now 43-0 under Wise McGinnis against teams from Mississippi. Though the Gators sport a road, record of 6-1, it is the first time this season they return from a road stretch unscathed. UF lost a neutral-site match to UCLA in Honolulu and another at South Carolina earlier this season. "It helps when you get a road mentality that you can win," Douglas said. "Now we know we can win on the road and be confident coming into those games."

There were some hiccups on the victory road back to Gainesville, especially in Sunday's game against Kentucky. It took two overtime periods to complete the match, and the scoreboard still read 0-0. Following the trend that they have established for most Sundays, the Gators came out sluggish in the opening half, only attempting two shots on goal. "We just have to play smarter soccer," sophomore midfielder Ameera Abdullah said.

"We are having trouble with our final connecting pass onto the goal," Abdullah said. "Sometimes we have a tendency to rush those. We had good scoring chances, and I thought that in some parts of the game we dominated. It's just one of those games you just couldn't put it in."

MONDAY, OCTOBER 9, 2006 E ALLIGATOR, 19 Tebow jumper nets first career touchdown pass By NICK ZACCARDI Alligator Staff Writer nzaccardi@alligator.org. Just call him "Air" Tebow. Known to most UF fans for his straightahead running style, UF freshman quarterback Tim Tebow showed off another part of his arsenal Saturday -his jump shot. He. accounted for all three of UF's touchdowns in its 23-10 win against LSU, scoring once on a 1-yard run and then on two passes. On both throws, Tebow Football faked a quarterback sneak, stepped back and found a wide-open receiver. The first reminded Tebow of his prep basketball days. On the LSU 1-yard line with 27 seconds remaining in the first half, Tebow made his move forward, fooling the defense into thinking he was going for his second 1-yard score of the game. He then moved back, doublepumped and found tight end Tate Casey falling into the back of the end zone. "I thought it was pretty good-looking," Casey said of the catch, which was Tebow's first touchdown pass of his career and Casey's first catch of any kind this season. "[But] it felt ugly, to be honest with you." Tebow held onto the ball for an extra second to allow Casey to get open, throwing the ball in jump-shot fashion while trying not to land for what would have been a traveling call on the hardwood. LSU's preseason All-America safety LaRon Landry held Casey up at the line at first, but the 6-foot-7, 240-pound junior ripped through the defender. "We'd rather our tight end not fumble around and fall down and do six pushups, do a cartwheel then get up and try to catch it," UF coach Urban Meyer joked. "Did they have video back in 1913? I think that's where we got that. We did that in Utah against Air Force in triple overtime one time to win the game." But Tebow thought the play had a little more Michael Jordan to it. "I haven't hit a shot in a while," said Tebow, who finished the game with nine rushes for 35 yards. "I need to get back to doing that. It's a lot of fun. I love playing basketball, so hopefully that had a little bit to do with that." The Gators worked on the secret play all throughout last week. Casey told his parents to look out for a weird play, but could not reveal exactly what the play was. Tebow would fool LSU again after halftime when he found Louis Murphy for a 35-yarder, the sophomore's first career catch. Tebow again took a step forward to fool the defense. Murphy ran down the left sideline all alone, giving Tebow a zone that most of the 90,714 at the Swamp could have slipped a ball into. UF coach Urban Meyer called the play a helmet throw, as if Tebow could have taken off his helmet and thrown it. When asked about his electrifying intensity that fires up the fans after the game, Tebow went Jordan again. "It feels like they're part of us, like they're our sixth man -or our 12th man," Tebow said, correcting himself. Only one question remains: Was Billy Donovan watching? ium eiimam / OUT LOUD, from pg. 20 "If he's out there the whole time, you are never getting that stuff communicated," Mullen said. "I think there is nothing better than in the middle of a series to be able to get your quarterback to the sideline and say, 'They've changed their blitz package. This is what they are doing. This is the check we are going to go to. This is why. Get back out there onto the field."' At first glance, this is far from a true two-quarterback offense. UF coach Urban Meyer has dubbed Leak the starter and the senior takes a vast majority of the snaps. But when you consider how many meaningful plays in which Tebow finds the ball in his hands, things suddenly don't. look so skewed. While Leak was under center for most of the game against LSU, Tebow passed for two scores and ran for another, accounting Tim Casey / Alligator Staff UF tight end Tate Casey catches a hoops-like 1-yard touchdown pass from Tim Tebow just before halftime against LSU. The bizarre play was Tebow's first ever TD throw. UF No. 3 in coaches' poll FOLLOW from page AP poll -will be one of th criteria.

"We will lighten up; ba it's a one-game season," said. "We outhit [LSU], anc one of [the hardest -hitting] Alli1gator Staff in the nation. We have t for all three of UF's touchdowns. Believe it or not, that was a good thing for Leak. After Saturday's perfonnance, teams are going to have to start focusing heavily on Tebow in their game plans. Nobody has had an answer for Tebow yet, and LSU was actually afraid of Tebow. Need proof? When Tebow faked a third-quarter run Saturday, the entire LSU defense darted toward the line of scrimmage to try to take them fresh and on their game 20 Saturday. I don't believe you do that with long practices." The Gators are also in prime BCS's position to make it to Atlafita for the SEC title game.

But if teams get too worried about Tebow, look for Leak to get more opportunities to use his patented hop-and-point-tothe-skies routine. And who knows? He may even save a few of those finger points for his talented backup.

Sports W~U ~ ~ k~"~ ~KKK1 I-'~'N K'"' I' ~ /~' ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSportS.org FOOTBALL Meyer downplays UF's ascent in poll_ By LOUIS ANASTASIS 4 Alligator Staff Writer lanastasis@alligator.org Urban Meyer calls it "Florida Nonsense." You can call it national title hype. The Gators earned a huge boost in the public-relations department Saturday as they moved into the No. 2 Associated Press poll. UF is ranked No. 3 in the USA Today Coaches' Poll and suddenly finds itself in the midst of the national championship race after bouncing LSU 23-10 in the Swamp on Saturday. "I kept hearing, 'Can we stay focused?' ad 'What's down the road?"' Meyer said. "We never discussed it, [but] I will address it now. [It's] the Florida Nonsense, the big 3 school, the Internet nonsense." So what exactly is Florida Nonsense? "It's the media. It's the fans," Meyer said. "It's just like the Notre Dame nonsense or the USC nonsense." The Gators (6-0, 4-0 Southeastern Conference) moved past Auburn -which was upset by unranked Arkansas -in both polls. But the somewhat surprising development was UF leapfrogging both West Virginia and Southern Califormnia in the AP poll. All three teams are undefeated, but the Trojans have struggled in consecutive games against Washington State and Washington, respectively. Meanwhile, West Virginia has yet to play a top-25 team. In reality, it is the Coaches' poll that truly matters. The initial BCS rankings will be released after UF plays Auburn on Tim Casey/ Alligator Staff Saturday and the coaches poll -not the UF freshman quarterback Tim Tebow listens to instructions from Coach Urban Meyer durSEE FOLLOW, PAGE 19 ing the LSU game. Sunday, Meyer reiterated his disdain for national title talk. Tebow, Leak thriving in two-quarterback system he idea of a two-quarterback system has been scoffed at by coaches and football gurus for years. Surely, receivers can't develop chemistry with two quarterbacks. When you use two quarterbacks, how can either get into any kind of rhythm? If you shuffle quarterbacks, won't both be nervous that any miscue could lead to a seat on the bench? Former UF coach Steve Spurrier ran a two-quarterback system in the late '90s with mild success. But this isn't Jesse Palmer and Doug Johnson. This is Chris Leak and Tim Tebow. This is the experienced senior with ridiculous accuracy and a knack for the deep pass and the true freshman who runs with reckless Bryan Jones abandon, making Bryan Out Loud linebackers and saferoneselligatororg ties look like kickers and punters. Leak and Tebow aren't battling each other. They are complimenting each other. "It is kind of a unique situation because they are very different talent-wise," offensive coordinator Dan Mullen said. "The difference in talent of those two really opens up some windows within how you package things. "They look at all the positives of it." Just consider this: If opposing defenses spent a whole week preparing for Tebow instead of Leak, would the freshman still be able to come in and the run ball down their throats? If Tebow doesn't act as an offensive spark plug and pick up crucial first downs, does Leak get a chance to open up the offense and continue his success? Mullen said one advantage of using two quarterbacks is the ability to take one quarterback off the field in the middle of a series and discuss what he needs to do to attack the defense. SEE OUT LOUD, PAGE 19 Gators welcome Thomas By NICK ZACCARDI Alligator Staff Writer nzaccardi@alligator.org UF senior defensive tackle Marcus Thomas didn't start, but still starred in the Gators' win against LSU in his return from a two-game suspension. Thomas, who was reinstated to the team Thursday after sitting out due to failing a second drug test, led the Gators' staunch defense Saturday with eight tackles. "He made a big difference," fellow defensive lineman Ray McDonald said. "Marcus is one of the emotional leaders on the defensive line. We really missed him out these past few games, so it's great to have him back." Thomas also broke up a pass and committed a tackle for Football loss, pacing a defense that forced four turnovers and picked up a safety. UF's Substance Abuse Committee amended Thomas' appeal just in time for the LSU game, though many speculated he could have sat out five or six contests. Thomas sat out the first four plays of LSU's opening series before entering on a third-and-4. HARVIN RErURNS, WYNN SITS: UF wide receiver Percy Harvin, a game-changing freshman who is coming back from a high left ankle sprain, caught two passes for 18 yards. He also ran once for nine yards. .Starting tailback DeShawn Wynn missed all but one play of the game after suffering a sprained right knee in UF's win against Alabama.
