Vigil honors

E UF STUDENTS SHARED THEIR STORIES OF
COMING OUT AT THE SEVENTH ANNUAL EVENT.

By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Alligator Writer
acancino@alligator.org

In the dark, candlelight illuminated the faces of about 36
students who walked Monday night to honor people who
were killed for living as a gender they were not born into.
The students walked from Turlington Plaza to the Reitz
Union to mark the seventh annual Transgender Day of
Remembrance.
Attached to each candle with a silver ribbon was a small
blue card, relating the story of someone who was killed for
his or her gender preferences.
"I'm Kasha Blue, though some of my friends also knew
me as Sydney," read one card. Blue was stabbed in the chest
June 18. After stabbing her, her killer said, "I got faggot blood
on me" and ran down the alley, the card read.
After the silent walk, four transgender students spoke to
the crowd about their experiences "coming out," during a
forum held on the ground floor of the Reitz Union.
The Office of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender
Affairs and Student Government's LGBTQ Student Affairsristin Nis
Cabinet sponsored the forum and the vigil. Kristin Nichos/Alligato

Students, rodents battle for territory in Broward Hall


By BRITTANY DAVIS
Alligator Writer
bdavis@alligator.org

The snap of a rat trap and its accompany-
ing squeal are sweet music to Broward Hall
residents. Those disgruntled dorm-dwellers
share their rooms with some of nature's crafti-
est mammals.
For the past month, Broward residents
have been finding ramen noodles scattered
on the floor, Doritos with nibbled-on edges


and cereal boxes punctured with bite marks.
Students said the Department of Housing and
Residence Education isn't doing enough to
correct the problem.
"We pay a lot of money to live here. They
should at least keep them up and make them
livable," said freshman Jacob Dubin. He pays
$1,858 per semester to live in a double in
Broward.
Last week, freshmen Michael Gilbert and
Louis Friend trapped a rat in a foam cup after
seeing it scamper across the floor in their third-

story room. The fist-sized rodent gnawed a
hole in the foam while Friend and Gilbert
held the cup down, scanning the room for a


backup plan. They grabbed an empty bottle
and jammed it over the cup, but the rat still
escaped before a maintenance worker could
arrive.
To fight the infestation, maintenance has
placed one or two 6-inch rat traps, each with
a gob of peanut butter for bait, in every room
where a student spots a rat.
Steel wool and expanding foam are used
to fill holes in the heating ducts that run from

Group alleges cow mistreatment


* AN ANIMAL RIGHTS ORGANIZATION QUES-
TIONS PRACTICES IN UF'S DAIRY RESEARCH.

By CHAD SMITH
Alligator Writer
csmith@alligator.org
Every day for two and a half years, Patricia Cacace
petted her cows at UF's Dairy Research Unit to prove
they were worth more than milk to her. But Cacace had
never before stroked a cow while its brains oozed out of
its head.
Cacace, who worked at the unit as an animal care-
taker, did just that one day after a hunter's errant bullet
pierced Ruby the cow's skull. Ruby, the gentlest of the
group, was left unattended for two days before she re-
ceived veterinary help, Cacace said.
Now an animal rights group may sue UF's dairy unit
to protest what they call the poor treatment of its cows.
The Animal Rights Foundation of Florida sent a
series of complaints to the unit's coordinator, David
Armstrong, and two other UF officials on Monday. The
complaints said the unit has allowed hunters too dose to
cows, failed to provide a safe environment for animals
and employed cruel euthanasia practices.
Some cows that were euthanized by being shot to
death were shot several times before finally dying,
Cacace said. She was fired from her job Oct. 20 after
employers said she wasn't working enough.
In a letter to the unit, ARFF wrote, "Although gun-
shot is an industry-accepted method of euthanasia, we
are concerned that current practices add to the stress and
suffering of the animal."
Armstrong declined to comment Monday. Joel
Brendemuhl, undergraduate coordinator for UF's
Department of Animal Sciences, and R. Kirby Barrick,
dean of UF's College of Agricultural and Life Sciences,
also were sent the letter but could not be reached for
comment.
Cacace said she approached ARFF after she was fired
because she worried about the cows' well-being and be-
cause many died unnaturally while she worked there.
"I've watched so many of them die in the past two
years, it's not even funny," Cacace said.


She described the filth some cows endure on a daily
basis and said some have to stand for up to 10 hours
a day in their own waste before their quarters are
washed.
"As high as the boots would go, sometimes that's
how high (the waste) goes," she said.
She described the "please-kill-me" looks that some
cows wear on their faces because of the "horrible" con-
ditions.
The letter says that though some of the practices at
UF's dairy unit are technically legal, they are subpar for
what's expected from UE.
Cacace gave ARFF volunteer Nick Atwood a tour of
the farm, which she said is a public facility, earlier this
month after she had been fired.
"As high as the boots would go, some-
times that's how high (the waste) goes."
Patricia Cacace
former UF Dairy Research Unit animal caretaker

Atwood, who is a vegan, said the way most dairy
farms treat their cows marks a far cry from the way cows
used to be raised.
"Dairy isn't happy cows in a field anymore," he said.
"It's a very unnatural environment for them."
He said he carried his video camera with him in plain
view during the tour of the facility to document his trip
and even met Armstrong. Atwood didn't tell Armstrong
he was affiliated with an animal rights group, he said.
"I was kind of surprised he didn't question why I
was filming or even why I was there," he said.
The video of Atwood's tour will be posted on ARFF's
Web site if UF doesn't respond to the complaints within
a few weeks, he said.
"Our aim is to have the university make changes to
the management of the Dairy Research Unit that will
benefit animals," he said.
For now, Cacace is still worried about the cows -
particularly Ruby, who survived her gunshot wound.
But Cacace isn't optimistic about her chances for a
normal life.
"She'll wind up dying like the rest of them," she
said.

Vegetarian turkey


tackles Turlington


* CLUB PROMOTES THANKS-
GIVING VEGETARIANISM.

By FRANCESCA DE GIROLAMI
Alligator Contributing Writer

Shivani Patel said that although
she's hot in her large turkey cos-
tume, she's dedicated so she'll
wear it as long as she needs to.
"If a giant turkey is handing you
a flier, you don't really say no to
that," she said.
Patel, a communication sciences
and disorders sophomore, is a
member of the -student organiza-
tion Animal Activists of Alachua,
which tabled and handed out fliers
Monday on Turlington Plaza. The
organization, which is dedicated
to increasing awareness about the
suffering of animals, was educating
students about the alternatives to
turkey for Thusday's Thanksgiving
holiday.
Patel handed out fliers in a tur-
key costume complete with a sign
reading, "Hug me don't eat me."
She said she got a couple of hugs
as a result.
Bonnie Chan, a mechanical
engineering sophomore and co-
president of the organization, said
they are trying to show people
alternatives to turkey because of all
the bad things the birds have to go
through.


"A lot of people are completely
unaware of the conditions that their
Thanksgiving meal goes through
before it gets to the table," Chan
said. "If a lot more people knew,
then they would consider alterna-
tives to turkey."
Members of AnimalActivists
of Alachua were handing out fliers
that explain the cruelty that many
turkeys experience.
According to one of the fliers
written by People for the Ethical
Treatment of Animals, factory-
farmed birds are often fed antibi-
otics in order to gain an enormous
amount of weight in a short pe-
riod of time. This results in painful,
swollen joints, crip-
On pled feet and heart
attacks. The birds are
also overcrowded
and packed so tightly that flapping
a wing or stretching a leg is nearly
impossible.
"People think that turkeys run
around and play in the dirt," Chan
said. "But it's not like that."
Chan, a vegan, said that on
Thanksgiving she eats green bean
casserole, mashed potatoes and
other traditional sides. Instead of
turkey she eats Tofurky, a turkey
substitute.
"What a lot of people don't
realize is they can have a regular
meal and replace the meat with soy
meat," she said.


Sentence dismays


slain student's friends


By JAMES RIGNEY
Alligator Writer
jrigney@alligator.org

Thomas Brown's fraternity
brothers are trying to put his
death behind them after two men
were sentenced Friday in connec-
tion with the death.
Jordan See, Brown's Beta
Theta Pi Fraternity brother, said
members of his fraternity are not
satisfied with the sentences.
"We wish the whole case had
turned out better than it did," he
said. "We're just trying to move
on."
Brown, who would have
turned 24 this September, was
beaten to death a few blocks from
the Jacksonville Landing after
the 2005 Florida-Georgia football
game.
Jeremy Lane was sentenced
to 12 years in prison, followed
by three years of probation. A
jury had convicted Lane of ag-
gravated battery, which carries a
maximum sentence of 15 years, in
September.
Mark Foss was sentenced to
four years in prison and two
years probation. He had pleaded
"no contest" to felony battery in
early November.
Alan Chipperfield, Lane's at-
torney, said the hearing lasted


four hours while friends and
family of Brown and Lane testi-
fied.
Chipperfield said Circuit
Judge Jack Schemer deliberated
for an hour before he announced
the sentences. He said many
criminal cases end with no real
winner.
"It's a tragic
case on both
Sides. It wasn't
intended, but it
.? came about be-
S cause of young
S people drinking
Brown and fighting,"
he said. "It's
just sad, just sad for both sides.
It's a loss for both families, and I
feel sorry for them."
See and Brown's family have
said they were disappointed in
the lesser convictions of Lane
and Foss. Lane was not convicted
of second-degree murder, as they
had hoped, and Foss' second-de-
gree murder charge was dropped
after he pleaded "no contest" to
felony battery.
See said he's glad the trials
and questions from the media are
almost done.
"There's some relief that it's
all over," he said. "We got some
closure, but not the closure we
wanted."

CHARITY

UF book drive benefits


inmates, their children


By ASHLEY MIHLEBACH
Alligator Contributing Writer

Irene Garrett lives her life bound by
hundreds of yards of coiled wire fencing
and constraints on she has each day to feel
the fresh air on her aged face. But she says
she can travel anywhere.
"With reading, you can escape," said
Garrett, 61, who is serving a life sentence
at Lowell Correctional Institution for sec-
ond-degree murder. "You can lie on your
bed and go anywhere."
With limited outside activities, books
at the prison are eagerly embraced and
seldom returned.
UF's English Society will help allevi-
ate the shortage by hosting a book drive,
which continues through Dec. 1.
Lowell Correctional Institution is a
minimum-security facility in Alachua
County housing about 1,200 female in-
mates.
Some serve a year and a day. Some
serve a lifetime. One waits on death row.
Angela Haines, who is serving time for
burglary, grand theft and violation of pa-
role, works in the main library at Lowell.
"Women come in every day asking,
Is there anything new today, Library
Lady?'" she said. "This is their life with-
out books there's nothing."
Given the way the institute is funded,
it's difficult to purchase items like books,
said Ellen Link, the assistant warden.
"We survive off donations," Link said.
The English Society decided to donate
its collection to the prison after hearing of
its request for children's books, said Rachel
Matuson, English Society president.
Many organizations donate to elemen-
tary schools and overlook prisons, she
said. Inmates want children's books so
they can read to their children during visi-
tation hours, especially over the holidays.
Garrett said reading is a great way
for a parent and child to interact when


inmates may not know how to express
themselves.
"When you're holding them in your
lap, nuzzling them in your arms, it's dif-
ficult to find the right words," she said.
Garrett and Haines also requested
books with large print for elderly inmates
and books in braille for blind inmates.
"Many inmates are unable to read
at the same level as my third-grader,"
Haines said. "They often get books that
are too advanced for them because they're
embarrassed and wind up getting dis-
couraged."
They also mentioned career-oriented
books, like how to write r6sumes, for in-
mates who want to prepare for the future.
"Many inmates are unable to
read at the same level as my
third-grader."
Angela Haines
prisoner

"When if, I get out of here, I want
to work for a few years and see every-
thing I've read about," said Garrett, who
has never held a cell phone or surfed the
Internet.
Link said she jumped at the opportu-
nity to be involved in the project.
Inmates often don't realize just how
much learning they're doing through
reading, she said. There's so much going
on behind the words.
Matuson said she hoped for a signifi-
cant turnout for the book drive but didn't
know what to expect because it will be the
English Society's first.
Drop boxes can be found in the
English department's main. office in
Turlingtbn Hall, Room 4008; the Student
Government offices in the Reitz Union;
Books-A-Million Inc.; and both Goerings
Book Store locations.

cal characteristics of a boy, but knew she
was a girl. As the years passed, Phillips' cer-
tainty about the way she felt made her sad.
By October 2002, she weighed about 320
pounds and was considering suicide.
Phillips, who now looks the way she
feels, iiade a pact with herself to lose
weight and tell her family that she was a
woman. She "came out" in May 2003, after
losing about 180 pounds.
Kyle Orta told his mother he was a man
his freshman year at UF.
His parents cut him off financially for the
next year. He worked different jobs to sup-


port himself and go to school full time.
After surgery and hormone pills, he has
the body he wants. He now attends the New
England Culinary Institute in Vermont.
UF alumnus Jeremy Merritt, 24, said the
civil rights movement inspired him to tell
his mother he was a man. He
On said their courage gave him
Campus courage.
Merritt also had surgery to
remove his breasts. He takes hormones to
make his body more masculine.
As the vigil ended Evan Andrews, chair-
man of the LGBTQ Student Affairs Cabinet,
blew out his candle and said: "Don't ex-
tinguish what we've done tonight. Don't
extinguish the hope and the love."

room to room. Isolating the rats
makes it easier to trap them.
In Friend and Gilbert's room,
a rat set off a trap, but managed
to wrest its wounded body out
of the metal damp. It scurried
about the room, trailing blood,
and disappeared. Maintenance
came the next day to dean up.
Even when students don't
see rats, they can hear them
scampering behind the walls,
said freshman Jason Blate.
Blate and his hallmates have
asked housing to take more
aggressive measures. In the
meantime, members on Blate's
floor don't take the situation
too seriously. Dubin said one
student bought a fake rat and
put it in the hallway.
"It's the hall joke," he said.
On the other side of Broward,
two floors below, freshman


Kasie Anthony is also dealing
with four-legged floormates.
After rats were spotted in the
kitchen, a resident put up a sign
that read: "Enter at your own
risk."
.Department of Housing and
Residence Education spokes-
woman Sharon Blansett said the
department has a pest control
staff, but they don't want to use
poison to kill the rats because
they might die in the walls.
"That would create an awful
smell," she said.
Four or five rats have been
trapped so far, Blansett said.
But that indicates a very small
problem, she said, since there
are more than 750 residents in
Broward. She added that the
cold weather often causes ro-
dents to seek shelter inside.
"It's a moderate problem
right now, but of course we
would like the number (of rats)
to be zero," she said.


Jose Tomeu, the president of
Alachua County Pest Control,
said in a well-maintained build-
ing, rats shouldn't be an issue.
"The only way the rats can
get in there is by having a hole,"
Tomeu said.
He said a building with
plenty of food and water is es-
pecially likely to have a rodent
problem. Another concern for
the students, Tomeu said, is the
diseases rats often carry.
"Lets say you have diarrhea
tomorrow and you don't know
where you get it," Tomeu said.
"The first thing you are going to
do is get mad at the restaurant.
But maybe a rat just urinated on
your bread."
According to the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention,
rats are susceptible to dis-.
eases transmittable to humans
through bites, droppings or
urine. No students have report-
ed illness, Blansett said.

6, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 21,2006




Get out now

Time for fewer U.S.

troops in Iraq, not more
W ell, that tears it. Over the weekend, Henry
Kissinger said victory in Iraq is impossible
and the man knows a thing or two about
botched military interventions. He was the brains, so to
speak, behind much of the Vietnam War.
Kissinger is the latest hawk to admit that Operation
Iraqi Freedom hasn't quite lived up to its title. He's joined
by Sen. John McCain, who said American troops in Iraq
are "fighting and dying for a failed policy." You've got that
right, John.
As the death toll mounts and Baghdad lurches further
and further into chaos, former supporters of the war are
gradually coming around to an obvious conclusion that
our presence in Iraq has worsened the problem, not solved
it. So what's the answer? More troops, of course!
McCain wants to add 20,000 U.S. soldiers to the 145,000
already stationed in Iraq enough for a "last big push,"
as the president calls it. Never mind that the Army is
stretched to the limit as it is. Never mind that the war in
Iraq costs us $200 million a day.
And even if 20,000 extra troops could stop the insur-
gency, never mind that there are no good guys left in Iraq
to take over when we're through just a bunch of squab-
bling factions, each with its own guns, its own bombs and
its own reason to hate everybody else.
Pulling out now would be messy, no doubt about that.
Without us around, Iraq's simmering civil war will jump
to a no-holds-barred free-for-all. But there's no reason to
think that won't happen when we leave whether it's in
six months, six years or a decade.
We can't train an effective Iraqi army. We can't keep
insurgents out of the police force. We can't even keep
Muqtada al-Sadr out of the interim government. We can
only watch as ethnic and religious factions divvy up
Baghdad, rearm and wait for us to go home. Then the
bloodbath starts.
So why stick it out? Why spend time and money and
American lives if all we can do in Iraq is delay the inevi-
table?
There's an opportunity cost here, after all those
troops fighting in Mosul and Tikrit aren't on the Korean
border, keeping an eye on Kim Jong II. They're not avail-
able for service in Iran, Syria or Sudan. Tying ourselves
down in Iraq limits our options if there's a crisis some-
where else.
Of course, American soldiers aren't pieces on a chess
board. They're people. While the administration makes its
last big push and the last big push after that they'll
be the ones doing the shooting, the ones getting shot at,
the ones losing arms, legs and eyes for no good reason.
Throwing 20,000 more of them into this mess is an odd
way of supporting the troops. That's why members of both
parties should support Sen. Carl Levin's proposal to begin
reducing troop levels in Iraq and voters should punish
their representatives in Congress if they don't. Sen. Bill
Nelson, we're looking at you.
Leaving Iraq won't be sexy, it won't be fun and it defi-
nitely won't be-"mission accomplished." But it's the right
thing to do. In the coming months, we hope opponents of
the war can find the courage of their convictions.

Letters to the Editor
Give fans true football playoff
As a fan of UF football, I want-
ed to voice my concern about the
Bowl Championship Series rating
system. Except for Division 1,
every division in college football
has a play-off system. So does
every other major sport: Baseball,
basketball and soccer all have
play-offs.
How can you expect a com-
puter to pick the top two teams
in the nation? The NCAA should
take the top six teams and have
a college football play-off. That
way, you'd really have the best
two teams playing in the national
championship.

Dude, where's my heritage?
It seems we have a month to
celebrate every culture but my
own. It's always Black or Hispanic
History Month but what about
European History month? Why
don't we celebrate the culture that


set the foundations for western
civilization?
After all, there wouldn't be an
America if it weren't for Western
Europeans. There's nothing wrong
with celebrating a wide array of
cultures but frankly, I'm sick of
never getting any respect or rever-
ence for my own.
Justin Brand
SFCC student


Press defends public interest
I had to respond .to "Press
keeps military from doing its job,"
Patrick Barrett's Thursday column.
I don't know if Barrett has ever
read Thomas Jefferson, but it's the
job of the press to keep our lead-
ers from doing stupid, ill-advised
things like getting us into stu-
pid, ill-advised wars.
It's precisely at the point when
people are getting ready to die that
we need to question our leaders,
not blindly obey them.

UF FOOTBALL

Harvin, Rolle exchange trash talk prior to FSU game


By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org

Let the trash talking begin.
On Monday, Florida State fresh-
man safety Myron Rolle took some
shots at UF freshman receiver Percy
Harvin..
"I'm in my zone and if I happen
to see him (run his route) across the
middle, it should be a fun thing,"
said Rolle, whose Seminoles play
the Gators on Saturday.
When UF ended its practice and
Harvin found out what Rolle said,
he fired back.
"If that's what he wants, then
bring it," Harvin said. "I don't shy
away from contact. I don't shy away
from anybody. So if that's how he
wants to take it, then we'll take
it there. He maybe can hit me, he
maybe can grab me, but as far as
running me down I don't know
about all that."
"He maybe can hit me, he
maybe can grab me, but as
far as running me down I
don't know about all that."
Percy Harvin
UF freshman receiver

So. why all the animosity?
Harvin and Rolle were both
members of the East team at the
U.S. Army All-American Bowl in
January. But instead of hobnobbing
with Rolle, Harvin and some of the
receivers took exception to the way
the safety excessively used his hands
to be physical during practice.
Harvin said he and the receivers
eventually huddled up and decided
to ignore Rolle's bravado. And ac-


cording to Harvin, he has always
burned Rolle.
"I guess he is still a little bitter
about the all-star game and us going
head to head," Harvin said. "And I
see him more as a linebacker than a
DB because his hits aren't quite that
great for a DB. I kind of got the best
of him and everybody was saying
'Ooh' and 'Ah.' He kind of took of-
fense to that and I guess pretty much
hasn't gotten over that yet."
Another point of contention
between the two is recruiting clout.
Harvin and Rolle flip-flopped
throughout their senior years as the
top-ranked players. Harvin finished
his prep career as the No. 1 overall
recruit on Rivals.com, while Rolle
was No. 12. However, Scout.com
had Rolle No. 9 and Harvin No. 13.
"When somebody's on top, the
next guy wants to be where he's at,"
Rolle said. "I wouldn't say that we're
the best of friends, and I think that it
can be settled on the field. You don't
want to talk about it. You want to
do something about it, and at safety
I'm in a good position to make some
things happen and let him know
that I'm here and let him know that
we're not the best of friends."
Saturday, the Gators and
Seminoles will be mired in a recruit-
ing-based dash of their own.
The annual rivalry often sways
undecided prospects who are con-
flicted between the two schools.
UF cleaned house last year after
its 34-7 home thrashing of FSU.
Safety Bryan Thomas, receiver
Jarred Fayson, cornerback Jacques
Rickerson, returned Brandon James,
defensive end Lawrence Marsh and
tight end Trent Pupello committed
either immediately after the game or
within the following week.
"The winner of this game usually


shakes hands (with recruits)," Coach
Urban Meyer said. "I hope it doesn't
come down to that, but the mag-
nitude is tremendous. Everything
you heard about the locker room
after this game is true. After a while,
I had to be careful about whose
hand I was shaking because it was
unbelievable what happened in the
SEumagmmim L-.- ",Plaaw


locker room afterward."
A loss at the hands of a mediocre
FSU team could cost UF a poten-
tially prolific run game. Tailback
Noel Devine of North Fort Myers
High, ranked No. 1 at his position
by Scout.com, has the Gators and
Seminoles at the top of his wish list.
Devine would probably be able to


immediately make an impact at UF
However, former Seminoles cor-
nerback Deion Sanders also played
high school ball at North Fort Myers
and has often talked with Devine.
Five-star prospects Ahmad Paige
(receiver) and John Brown (defen-
sive tackle) favor UF and FSU as
well.

FOOT, from page 16
ball after returning the opening kickoff for 12 yards.
For the season, James has turned into the diamond of a UF
recruiting class filled with crown jewels.
Scout.com had him listed as a two-star prospect, the lowest-
rated player who signed with the Gators.
Rivals.com didn't think much more of the 5-foot-7 speed-
ster, grading him a three-star running back.
So why did Meyer take a chance on such an unheralded
prospect?


"I took (St. Augustine coach) Joey Wiles' advice," Meyer
said. "He said, 'You're nuts if you don't take him.' (Now) we've
got his butt for three more years."
To add insult to what's already happened
to FSU this season, James' derriere could have
been Bobby Bowden's.
"Growing up, I was a Florida State fan,"
Football James said.
But James' allegiance ended on Nov. 26 of
last year when the Gators routed the Seminoles 34-7.
After watching the game with half-brother, Jacques


Rickerson, the two eventually committed to UF within the next
few days.
Fast-forward 12 months, and James has not only FSU but
also Green in his sights.
With 312 total punt-return yards, James is just 80 yards be-
hind the Gators' single-season best owned by Green with
three games left.
To break the record against the Seminoles would be inde-
scribable.
"Through my high school career, they didn't really recruit
me," James said. "So I have a little grudge."

UF improving despite weak opponents


HOOPS, from page 16


upset to Oral Roberts.
UF coach Billy Donovan said he believes
the Gators will be ready after learning
something from each of the four games
they have decisively won.
"I think a lot of times people will look
at the scores of those games and say that
the games maybe have not been benefi-
cial, but I would disagree," Donovan said.
"I think all of the games we've played
have been beneficial and helpful as far as
our growth is concerned, because we're
seeing a lot of different things."


UF has been able to handle anything
its opponents have dished out from
a Princeton style of play to the double-
teaming of its post
S players. Junior forward
Joakim Noah said it is the
Gators' depth that makes
Basketball them such a resilient
team.
"What's great about
this team it's not one or two guys that
are tough," Noah said. "I think that ev-
erybody shows that they can contribute,
and that's a good edge to have, especially
this early in the season."


through no fault of their own. No
one could have predicted that Florida
State, Alabama and Georgia would all
have simultaneous off-years. Playing
Western Carolina didn't help either.
Instead, we're left arguing about
the merits of teams that have failed to
ensure that'they should be playing for all
the marbles.
With the way the system is, any one-
loss team that is excluded from the game
doesn't have a legitimate gripe.
For the record, I am adamantly op-
posed to the way things are decided now,
with the opinions of a small minority and
some computer-crunched numbers decid-
ing which two teams are best. Just ask me
about the 16-team playoff that a couple


of other writers and I came up with over
beers in Nashville. Such an amendment
would not only raise the competitive bal-
ance of the sport, but also generate a ton
more revenue in the process.
Unfortunately, we don't have the
logical playoff necessary to determine
who would win a game between UF
and Michigan, USC and West Virginia,
Arkansas and Notre Dame.
One e f these teams is going to-get a
chance to look Ohio State in the eye and-
see how they measure up. That team will
be determined by a rating rather than by
proving itself against its peers.
In all likelihood, the Gators will be sit-
ting on their couches rather than playing
on Jan. 8. They will be wondering how
that night on the Plains went so horribly
wrong, and they will have no one to
blame but themselves.

James seeks revenge on 'Noles for not recruiting him


Casey Anderson / Alligator
Brandon James returns a Western Carolina punt during the Gators' 62-0 victory against the Catamounts
on Saturday. James said he will be extra motivated to play Florida State on Saturday.


* THE FRESHMAN SCORED
HIS FIRST TD SATURDAY.

By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
nzaccardi@alligator.org

Brandon James finally got in the
end zone, but there's still a monkey
resting on his back.
As .No. 4 UF (10-1, 7-1
Southeastern Conference) readies
for Saturday's game at Florida State,
James will be looking to show why
the Seminoles made a mistake in not-
recruiting him.
After calling his first colle-
giate touchdown against Western
Carolina a great feeling, the fresh-
man running back said a similar
score against FSU would be inde-
scribable.
"Thats been running through
my mind since signing day," James
said. "Going into this week, we'll
just have to see what's going to
happen."
If Saturday's showing was any
indication, James might get his
vengeful touchdown.
Against Western Carolina, he
took a punt back 77 yards for a score,
helping him reset UF's single-game
record for punt return yardage in


one half.
With 155 yards before halftime,
James surpassed Jacquez Green's
mark of 145 set in 1996 against
Kentucky.
More importantly, James' return
didn't get called back on a penalty.
Against Tennessee and Georgia
earlier this season, James also took
punts back all the way, only to have
penalties negate the scores.
A yellow hanky flew on
Saturday's touchdown return, but it
was called on the Catamounts.
"I ran past the flag, so I'm think-
ing, 'Here it goes again,'" James
said.
Watching James take the penal-
ties in stride including the one
Saturday -has impressed UF coach
Urban Meyer.
"I was going to choke who-
ever that flag was on," Meyer joked.
"(But) Brandon James has not one
time complained or moaned about
a guy having a penalty."
His touchdown was the Gators'
first punt-return score since Lito
Sheppard took one back in 2000,
also against Kentucky.
After six returns in the first two
quarters, James took a breather in
the second half and didn't touch the

Gators not entitled to title game


allow me to sort through this
BCS mess for you.
S I'll avoid stating the obvi-
ous, such as the fact that it's going to
take a minor miracle for the Gators to
find themselves in the title game after
the pollsters didn't drop Michigan
following its loss to Ohio State last
weekend.
-One thing, however, I don't want to
hear is complaining when UF doesn't
end its season in Arizona, or that the
Gators have somehow been shafted/
screwed/jobbed/robbed or any other
term you want to use, because it is no
one's fault but their own.
In the crazy realm that college foot-
ball occupies, no one-loss team is owed
anything.
The Gators aren't owed a national
title bid any more than Michigan,
Southern Cal, Arkansas or anyone else,
because they failed to take care of their
own business.
If the Gators don't fall against
Auburn in mid-October, we're talking
about whether they can hold on and


Dan Treat
Dan in Motion
dtreat@alligator.org


face the Buckeyes
rather than hav-
ing to argue their
worth.
At least one
Gator agrees.
"'We could
have avoided all
this if we had
beaten Auburn,"
defensive tackle


Clint McMillan said. "It's not like
we're an undefeated team saying we're
getting cheated that Way, because if
we handled business against Auburn,
then we have a shot at the national
championship, and there's no dispute
about it."
If you want to talk legitimate'gripes,
let's talk 2004 Auburn, which won all
of its games, including a conference
title game but was still denied a chance
to play for it all.
If you want to talk strength of
schedule, the Gators come up short

Brewer attends to father


By JENNA MARINA and
LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writers

While the rest of the Gators practiced
Monday afternoon in preparation for
tonight's game, forward Corey Brewer was
more than 600 miles away tending to his
father's ailing health.
Brewer flew to Portland, Tenn., on
Sunday morning to be at his father, Ellis',
side while he was hospitalized for two
days for breathing problems related to fluid
buildup in his chest.
Ellis had his left leg amputated in late
October after a sore on his foot progressed
into gangrene, and the fluid buildup was a
result of sitting in bed as he recovered.
"Sometimes when you have a surgery
like that it kind of shocks the body,"
Brewer's older brother, Jason, said. "But
he's doing good. Everything's looking up.
He's just taking it one day at a time."
Brewer decided to catch an early-mom-


ing flight to Gainesville today after his
father's condition improved somewhat.
"I'm doing all right," Ellis said. "I've
been moving around. I've just had to go
through a long healing process."
Perhaps Brewer
helped the healing pro-
cess, since his presence
definitely boosted his
father's morale.
"I wasn't expecting
him to come," Ellis said.
"It meant a whole lot."
Brewer Ellis will be watch-
ing his son on television
as the Gators take on Prairie View A&M
tonight at 7:30 in the O'Connell Center.
This will be the last chance for No. 1 UF
to work out any kinks before it heads to Las
Vegas on Thanksgiving weekend to com-
pete against No. 10 Kansas its most for-
midable opponent thus far. The Jayhawks

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2006 UF infirmary stocks over-the-counter Plan B By JESSICA DaSILVA Alligator Writer jdasilva@aIigator.org UF students will now have easier access to the birth control option known as Plan B, as the Student Health Care Center loosened its regulations on the pill Monday. Although the tablets have always been available at SHCC, UF students can now buy them without a prescription, said pharmacy manager Laura Tipton. Plan B uses a "larger-than-typical dose" of birth control that prevents ovulation, Tipton said. But even if fertilization does occur, she said, Plan B can still prevent a pregnancy. The pills are being sold for $30 Public -$8 to $15 cheaper than at other HG81th pharmacies, Tipton said. "We always try to have the lowest cost for students," she said. She emphasized that the pills would only be sold to UF students older than 18. "You can be registered for one credit," Tipton said. Students must bring their Gator 1 Cards to the center, located next to the Florida Gyrm, in order to purchase the pills. Vigil honors tran sgendered r M UF STUDENTS SHARED THEIR STORIES OF COMING OUT AT THE SEVENTH ANNUAL EVENT. By ALEJANDRA CANCINO Alligator Writer acancino@alligator.org In the dark, candlelight illuminated the faces of about 36 students who walked Monday night to honor people who were killed for living as a gender they were not born into. The students walked from Turlington Plaza to the Reitz Union to mark the seventh annual Transgender Day of Remembrance. Attached to each candle with a silver ribbon was a small blue card, relating the story of someone who was killed for his or her gender preferences. "I'm Kasha Blue, though some of my friends also knew me as Sydney," read one card. Blue was stabbed in the chest June 18. After stabbing her, her killer said, "I got faggot blood on me" and ran down the alley, the card read. After the silent walk, four transgender students spoke to the crowd about their experiences "coming out," during a forum held on the ground floor of the Reitz Union. The Office of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Affairs and Student Government's LGBTQ Student Affairs Kristin Nichols/ Alligator Cabinet sponsored the forum and the vigil.

Those disgruntled dorm-dwellers share their rooms with some of nature's craftiest mammals. For the past month, Broward residents have been finding ramen noodles scattered on the floor, Doritos with nibbled-on edges and cereal boxes punctured with bite marks.

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2006 E ALLIGATOR, 3 Group alleges cow mistreatment AN ANIMAL RIGHTS ORGANIZATION QUESTIONS PRACTICES IN UF'S DAIRY RESEARCH. By CHAD SMITH Alligator Writer csmith@alligator.org Every day for two and a half years, Patricia Cacace petted her cows at UF's Dairy Research Unit to prove they were worth more than milk to her. But Cacace had never before stroked a cow while its brains oozed out of its head. Cacace, who worked at the unit as an animal caretaker, did just that one day after a hunter's errant bullet pierced Ruby the cow's skull. Ruby, the gentlest of the group, was left unattended for two days before she received veterinary help, Cacace said. Now an animal rights group may sue UF's dairy unit to protest what they call the poor treatment of its cows. The Animal Rights Foundation of Florida sent a series of complaints to the unit's coordinator, David Armstrong, and two other UF officials on Monday. The complaints said the unit has allowed hunters too close to cows, failed to provide a safe environment for animals and employed cruel euthanasia practices. Some cows that were euthanized by being shot to death were shot several times before finally dying, Cacace said. She was fired from her job Oct. 20 after employers said she wasn't working enough. In a letter to the unit, ARFF wrote, "Although gunshot is an industry-accepted method of euthanasia, we are concerned that current practices add to the stress and suffering of the animal." Armstrong declined to comment Monday. Joel Brendemuhl, undergraduate coordinator for UF's Department of Animal Sciences, and R. Kirby Barrick, dean of UF's College of Agricultural and Life Sciences, also were sent the letter but could not be reached for comment. Cacace said she approached ARFF after she was fired because she worried about the cows' well-being and because many died unnaturally while she worked there. "I've watched so many of them die in the past two years, it's not even funny," Cacace said. She described the filth some cows endure on a daily basis and said some have to stand for up to 10 hours a day in their own waste before their quarters are washed. "As high as the boots would go, sometimes that's how high (the waste) goes," she said. .She described the "please-kill-me" looks that some cows wear on their faces because of the "horrible" conditions. The letter says that though some of the practices at UF's dairy unit are technically legal, they are subpar for what's expected from UE Cacace gave ARFF volunteer Nick Atwood a tour of the farm, which she said is a public facility, earlier this month after she had been fired. "As high as the boots would go, sometimes that's how high (the waste) goes." Patricia Cacace former UF Dairy Research Unit animal caretaker Atwood, who is a vegan, said the way most dairy farms treat their cows marks a far cry from the way cows used to be raised. "Dairy isn't happy cows in a field anymore," he said. "It's a very unnatural environment for them." He said he carried his video camera with him in plain view during the tour of the facility to document his trip and even met Armstrong. Atwood didn't tell Armstrong he was affiliated with an animal rights group, he said. "I was kind of surprised he didn't question why I was filming or even why I was there," he said. The video of Atwood's tour will be posted on ARFF's Web site if UF doesn't respond to the complaints within a few weeks, he said. "Our aim is to have the university make changes to the management of the Dairy Research Unit that will benefit animals," he said. For now, Cacace is still worried about the cows particularly Ruby, who survived her gunshot wound. But Cacace isn't optimistic about her chances for a normal life. "She'll wind up dying like the rest of them," she said. "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" Looks like someone took a peek at the Holiday Gift Guides.

4, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2006 Vegetarian turkey 1, ac1K eS Tur iin gto n E CLUB PROMOTES THANKSGIVING VEGETARIANISM. By FRANCESCA DE GIROLAMI Alligator Contributing Writer Shivani Patel said that although she's hot in her large turkey costume, she's dedicated -so she'll wear it as long as she needs to. "If a giant turkey is handing you a flier, you don't really say no to that," she said. Patel, a conununication sciences and disorders sophomore, is a member of the -student organization Animal Activists of Alachua, which tabled and handed out fliers Monday on Turlington Plaza. The organization, which is dedicated to increasing awareness about the suffering of animals, was educating students about the alternatives to turkey for Thusday's Thanksgiving holiday. Patel handed out fliers in a turkey costume complete with a sign reading, "Hug me don't eat me." She said she got a couple of hugs as a result. Bonnie Chan, a mechanical engineering sophomore and copresident of the organization, said they are trying to show people alternatives to turkey because of all the bad things the birds have to go through. By JAMES RIGNEY Alligator Writer jrignfey@alligator.org Thomas Brown's fraternity brothers are trying to put his death behind them after two men were sentenced Friday in connection with the death. Jordan See, Brown's Beta Theta Pi Fraternity brother, said members of his fraternity are not satisfied with the sentences. "We wish the whole case had turned out better than it did," he said. "We're just trying to move on.", Brown, who would have turned 24 this September, was beaten to death a few blocks from the Jacksonville Landing after the 2005 Florida-Georgia football game. Jeremy Lane was sentenced to 12 years in prison, followed by three years of probation. A jury had convicted Lane of aggravated battery, which carries a maximum sentence of 15 years, in September. Mark Foss was sentenced to four years in prison and two years probation. He had pleaded "no contest" to felony battery in early November. Alan Chipperfield, Lane's attorney, said the hearing lasted "A lot of people are completely unaware of the conditions that their Thanksgiving meal goes through before it gets to the table," Chan said. "If a lot more people knew, then they would consider alternatives to turkey." Members of Animal.Activists of Alachua were handing out fliers that explain the cruelty that many turkeys experience. According to one of the fliers written by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, factoryfarmed birds are often fed antibiotics in order to gain an enormous amount of weight in a short period of time. This results in painful, swollen joints, cripOn pled feet and heart attacks. The birds are also overcrowded and packed so tightly that flapping a wing or stretching a leg is nearly impossible. "People think that turkeys run around and play in the dirt," Chan said. "But it's not like that." Chan, a vegan, said that on Thanksgiving she eats green bean casserole, mashed potatoes and other traditional sides. Instead of turkey she eats Tofurky, a turkey substitute. "What a lot of people don't realize is they can have a regular meal and replace the meat with soy meat," she said. four hours while friends and family of Brown and Lane testified. Chipperfield said Circuit Judge Jack Schemer deliberated for an hour before he announced the sentences. He said many criminal cases end with no real winner. "It's a tragic case on both sides. It wasn't intended, but it came about because of young people drinking Brawn and fighting," he said. "It's just sad, just sad for both sides. It's a loss for both families, and I feel sorry for them." See and Brown's family have said they were disappointed in the lesser convictions of Lane and Foss. Lane was not convicted of second-degree murder, as they had hoped, and Foss' second-degree murder charge was dropped after he pleaded "no contest" to felony battery. See said he's glad the trials and questions from the media are almost done. "There's some relief that it's all over," he said. "We got some closure, but not the closure we wanted."

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2006 U ALLIGATOR, 5 CHARITY UF book drive benefits inmates, their children By ASHLEY MIHLEBACH Alligator Contributing Writer Irene Garrett lives her life bound by hundreds of yards of coiled wire fencing and constraints on she has each day to feel the fresh air on her aged face. But she says she can travel anywhere. "With reading, you can escape," said Garrett, 61, who is serving a life sentence at Lowell Correctional Institution for second-degree murder. "You can lie on your bed and go anywhere." With limited outside activities, books at the prison are eagerly embraced and seldom returned. UF's English Society will help alleviate the shortage by hosting a book drive, which continues through Dec. 1. Lowell Correctional Institution is a minimum-security facility in Alachua County housing about 1,200 female inmates. Some serve a year and a day. Some serve a lifetime. One waits on death row. Angela Haines, who is serving time for burglary, grand theft and violation of parole, works in the main library at Lowell. "Women come in every day asking, 'is there anything new today, Library Lady?"' she said. "This is their life -without books there's nothing." Given the way the institute is funded, it's difficult to purchase items like books, said Ellen Link, the assistant warden. "We survive off donations," Link said. The English Society decided to donate its collection to the prison after hearing of its request for children's books, said Rachel Matuson, English Society president. Many organizations donate to elementary schools and overlook prisons, she said. Inmates want children's books so they can read to their children during visitation hours, especially over the holidays. Garrett said reading is a great way for a parent and child to interact when inmates may not know how to express themselves. "When you're holding them in your lap, nuzzling them in your arms, it's difficult to find the right words," she said. Garrett and Haines also requested books with large print for elderly inmates and books in braille for blind inmates. "Many inmates are unable to read at the same level as my third-grader," Haines said. "They often get books that are too advanced for them because they're embarrassed and wind up getting discouraged." They also mentioned career-oriented books, like how to write resumes, for inmates who want to prepare for the future. "Many inmates are unableto read at the same level as my third-grader." Angela Haines_ prisoner "When -if, I get out of here, I want to work for a few years and see everything I've read about," said Garrett, who has never held a cell phone or surfed the Internet. Link said she jumped at the opportunity to be involved in the project. Inmates often don't realize just how much learning they're doing through reading, she said. There's so much going on behind the words. Matuson said she hoped for a significant turnout for the book drive but didn't know what to expect because it will be the English Society's first. Drop boxes can be found in the English department's main, office in Turlington Hall, Room 4008; the Student Government offices in the Reitz Union; Books-A-Million Inc.; and both Goerings Book Store locations. VIGIL,frompage 1 cal characteristics of a boy, but knew she was a girl. As the years passed, Phillips' certainty about the way she felt made her sad. By October 2002, she weighed about 320 pounds and was considering suicide. Phillips, who now looks the way she feels, iade a pact with herself to lose weight and tell her family that she was a woman. She "came out" in May 2003, after losing about 180 pounds. Kyle Orta told his mother he was a man his freshman year at UF. His parents cut him off financially for the next year. He worked different jobs to support himself and go to school full time. After surgery and hormone pills, he has the bodyhe wants. He now attends the New England Culinary Institute in Vermont. UF alumnus Jeremy Merritt, 24, said the civil rights movement inspired him to tell his mother he was a man. He On said their courage gave him Campus courage. Merritt also had surgery to remove his breasts. He takes hormones to make his body more masculine. As the vigil ended Evan Andrews, chairman of the LGBTQ Student Affairs Cabinet, blew out his candle and said: "Don't extinguish what we've done tonight. Don't extinguish the hope and the love." No rat-related illnesses reported in dorms RATS from page 1 room to room. Isolating the rats makes it easier to trap them. In Friend and Gilbert's room, a rat set off a trap, but managed to wrest its wounded body out of the metal camp. It scurried about the room, trailing blood, and disappeared. Maintenance came the next day to ciean up. Even when students don't see rats, they can hear them scampering behind the walls, said freshman Jason Blate. Blate and his hallmates have asked housing to take more aggressive measures. In the meantime, members on Blate's floor don't take the situation too seriously. Dubin said one student bought a fake rat and put it in the hallway. "It's the hall joke," he said. On the other side of Broward, two floors below, freshman Kasie Anthony is also dealing with four-legged floormates. After rats were spotted in the kitchen, a resident put up a sign that read: "Enter at your own risk." Department of Housing and Residence Education spokeswoman Sharon Blansett said the department has a pest control staff, but they don't want to use poison to kill the rats because they might die in the walls. "That would create an awful smell," she said. Four or five rats have been trapped so far, Blansett said. But that indicates a very small problem, she said, since there are more than 750 residents in Broward. She added that the cold weather often causes rodents to seek shelter inside. "It's a moderate problem right now, but of course we would like the number (of rats) to be zero," she said. Jose Tomeu, the president of Alachua County Pest Control, said in a well-maintained building, rats shouldn't be an issue. "The only way the rats can get in there is by having a hole," Tomeu said. He said a building with plenty of food and water is especially likely to have a rodent problem. Another concern for the students, Tomeu said, is the diseases rats often carry. "Lets say you have diarrhea tomorrow and you don't know where you get it," Tomeu said. "The first thing you are going to do is get mad at the restaurant. But maybe a rat just urinated on your bread." According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, rats are susceptible to diseases transmittable to humans through bites, droppings or urine. No students have reported illness, Blansett said. Kaplan MCAT classes are starting now!

6, ALLIGATOR E TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2006 Editorial Get out now Time for fewer U.S. troops in Iraq, not more ell, that tears it. Over the weekend, Henry Kissinger said victory in Iraq is impossible -and the man knows a thing or two about botched military interventions. He was the brains, so to speak, behind much of the Vietnam War. Kissinger is the latest hawk to admit that Operation Iraqi Freedom hasn't quite lived up to its title. He's joined by Sen. John McCain, who said American troops in Iraq are "fighting and dying for a failed policy." You've got that right, John. As the death toll mounts and Baghdad lurches further and further into chaos, former supporters of the war are gradually coming around to an obvious conclusion -that our presence in Iraq has worsened the problem, not solved it. So what's the answer? More troops, of course! McCain wants to add 20,000 U.S. soldiers to the 145,000 already stationed in Iraq -enough for a "last big push," as the president calls it. Never mind that the Army is stretched to the limit as it is. Never mind that the war in Iraq costs us $200 million a day. And even if 20,000 extra troops could stop the insurgency, never mind that there are no good guys left in Iraq to take over when we're through -just a bunch of squabbling factions, each with its own guns, its own bombs and its own reason to hate everybody else. Pulling out now would be messy, no doubt about that. Without us around, Iraq's simmering civil war will jump to a no-holds-barred free-for-all. But there's no reason to think that won't happen when we leave -whether it's in six months, six years or a decade. We can't train an effective Iraqi army. We can't keep insurgents out of the police force. We can't even keep Muqtada al-Sadr out cf the interim government. We can only watch as ethnic and religious factions divvy up Baghdad, rearm and wait for us to go home. Then the bloodbath starts. So why stick it out? Why spend time and money and American lives if all we can do in Iraq is delay the inevitable? There's an opportunity cost here, after all -those troops fighting in Mosul and Tikrit aren't on the Korean border, keeping an eye on Kim Jong Ii. They're not available for service in Iran, Syria or Sudan. Tying ourselves down in Iraq limits our options if there's a crisis somewhere else. Of course, American soldiers aren't pieces on a chess board. They're people. While the administration makes its last big push -and the last big push after that -they'll be the ones doing the shooting, the ones getting shot at, the ones losing arms, legs and eyes for no good reason. Throwing 20,000 more of them into this mess is an odd way of supporting the troops. That's why members of both parties should support Sen. Carl -Levin's proposal to begin reducing troop levels in Iraq -and voters should punish their representatives in Congress if they don't. Sen. Bill Nelson, we're looking at you. Leaving Iraq won't be sexy, it won't be fun and it definitely won't be"mission accomplished." But it's the right thing to do. In the coming months, we hope opponents of the war can find the courage of their convictions. th indepedet flrido alligator Stephanie Garry EDITOR Ashton Grosz MANAGING EDITOR Jake Ramsey OPINIONS EDITOR Tom Durrenberger Anuradha Pandey Leigh Shapiro EDITORIAL BOARD.

Letters to the Editor Give fans true football playoff As a fan of UF football, I wanted to voice my concern about the Bowl Championship Series rating system. Except for Division 1, every division in college football has a play-off system. So does every other major sport: Baseball, basketball and soccer all -have play-offs. .How can you expect a computer to pick the top two teams in the nation? The NCAA should take the top six teams and have a college football play-off. That way, you'd really have the best two teams playing in the national championship. JJ. Berg 3BA Dude, where's my heritage? It seems we have a month to celebrate every culture but my own. It's always Black or Hispanic History Month -but what about European History month?Why don't we celebrate the culture that set the foundations for western civilization? After all, there wouldn't be an America if it weren't for Western Europeans. There's nothing wrong with celebrating a wide array of cultures -but frankly, I'm sick of never getting any respect or reverence for my own. Justin Brand SFCC student U U N Press defends public interest I had to respond to "Press keeps military from doing its job," Patrick Barrett's Thursday column. I don't know if Barrett has ever read Thomas Jefferson, but it's the job of the press to keep our leaders from doing stupid, ill-advised things -like getting us into stupid, ill-advised wars. It's precisely at the point when people are getting ready to die that we need to question our leaders, not blindly obey them.

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2006 E ALLIGATOR, 15 Harvin, Rolle exchange trash talk prior to FSU game By LOUIS ANASTASIS Alligator Staff Writer lanastasis@amligator.org Let the trash talking begin. On Monday, Florida State freshman safety Myron Rolle took some shots at UF freshman receiver Percy Harvin. "I'm in my zone and if I happen to see him (run his route) across the middle, it should be a fun thing," said Rolle, whose Seminoles play the Gators on Saturday. When UF ended its practice and Harvin found out what Rolle said, he fired back. "If that's what he wants, then bring it," Harvin said. "I don't shy away from contact. I don't shy away from anybody. So if that's how he wants to take it, then we'll take it there. He maybe can hit me, he maybe can grab me, but as far as running me down -I don't know about all that." "He maybe can hit me, he maybe can grab me, but as far as running me down -I don't know about all that." Percy Harvin UE freshman receiver SQ why all the animosity? Harvin and Rolle were both members of the East team at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in January. But instead of hobnobbing with Rolle, Hafvin and some of the receivers took exception to the way the safety excessively used his hands to be physical during practice. Harvin said he and the receivers eventually huddled up and decided to ignore Rolle's bravado. And according to Harvin, he has always burned Rolle. "I guess he is still a little bitter about the all-star game and us going head to head," Harvin said. "And I see him more as a linebacker than a DB because his hits aren't quite that great for a DB. I kind of got the best of him and everybody was saying 'Ooh' and 'Ah.' He kind of took offense to that and I guess pretty much hasn't gotten over that yet." Another point of contention between the two is recruiting clout. Harvin and Rolle flip-flopped throughout their senior years as the top-ranked players. Harvin finished his prep career as the No. 1 overall recruit on Rivals.com, while Rolle was No. 12. However, Scout.com had Rolle No. 9 and Harvin No. 13. "When somebody's on top, the next guy wants to be where he's at," Rolle said. "I wouldn't say that we're the best of friends, and I think that it can be settled on the field. You don't want to talk about it. You want to do something about it, and at safety I'm in a good position to make some things happen and let him know that I'm here and let him know that we're not the best of friends." Saturday, the. Gators and Seminoles will be mired in a recruiting-based clash of their own. The annual rivalry often sways undecided prospects who are conflicted between the two schools. UF cleaned house last year after its 34-7 home thrashing of FSU. Safety Bryan Thomas, receiver Jarred Fayson, cornerback Jacques Rickerson, returner Brandon James, defensive end Lawrence Marsh and tight end Trent Pupello committed either immediately after the game or within the following week. "The winner of this game usually shakes hands (with recruits)," Coach Urban Meyer said. "I hope it doesn't come down to that, but the magnitude is tremendous. Everything you heard about the locker room after this game is true. After a while, I had to be careful about whose hand I was shaking because it was unbelievable what happened in the locker room afterward." A loss at the hands of a mediocre FSU team could cost UF a potentially prolific run game. Tailback Noel Devine of North Fort Myers High, ranked No. 1 at his position by Scout.com, has the Gators and Seminoles at the top of his wish list. Devine would probably be able to immediately make an impact at U. However, former Seminoles ,cornerback Deion Sanders also played high school ball at North Fort Myers and has often talked with Devine. Five-star prospects Ahmad Paige (receiver) and John Brown (defensive tackle) favor UF and FSU as well. Casey Anderson / AiHgator Freshman receiver Percy Harvin tries to break a tackle during the Gators' 62-0 victory against Western Carolina last Saturday. Harvin said he looks forward to running by FSU safety.Myron Rolle on Saturday. James needs 81 yards to break Green's single-season punt-return record FOOT, from page 16 ball after returning the opening kickoff for 12 yards. For the season, James has turned into the diamond of a UF recruiting class filled with crown jewels. Scout.com had him listed as a two-star prospect, the lowestrated player who signed with the Gators. Rivals.com didn't think much more of the 5-foot-7 speedster, grading him a three-star inning back. So why did Meyer take a chance on such an unheralded prospect? "I took (St. Augustine coach) Joey Wiles' advice," Meyer said. "He said,'You're nuts if you don't take him.' (Now) we've got his butt for three more years." To add insult to what's already happened to FSU this season, James' derri6re could have been Bobby Bowden's. "Growing up, I was a Florida State fan," Football James said. But James' allegiance ended on Nov. 26 of last year when the Gators routed the Seminoles 34-7. After watching the game with half-brother, Jacques UF improving despite weak opponents H OOPS, from page 16 upset to Oral Roberts. UF coach Billy Donovan said he believes the Gators will be ready after learning something from each of the four games they have decisively won. "I think a lot of times people will look at the scores of those games and say that the games maybe have not been beneficial, but I would disagree," Donovan said. "I think all of the games we've played have been beneficial and helpful as far as our growth is concerned, because we're seeing a lot of different things." UF has been able to handle anything its opponents have dished out -from a Princeton style of play to the doubleteaming of its post players. Junior forward Joakim Noah said it is the Gators' depth that makes Basketball them such a resilient team. "What's great about this team -it's not one or two guys that are tough," Noah said. "I think that everybody shows that they can contribute, and that's a good edge to have, especially this early in the season."

Sports TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 21,2006 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org James seeks revenge on 'Noles for not recruiting him Casey Anderson / Alligator Brandon James returns a Western Carolina punt during the Gators' 62-0 victory against the Catamounts on Saturday. James said he will be extra motivated to play Florida State on Saturday. E THE FRESHMAN SCORED HIS FIRST TD SATURDAY. By NICK ZACCARDI Alligator Staff Writer nzaccardi@alligator.org Brandon James finally got in the end zone, but there's still a monkey resting on his back. As .No. 4 UF (10-1, 7-1 Southeastern Conference) readies for Saturday's game at Florida State, James will be looking to show why the Seminoles made a mistake in not recruiting him. After calling his first collegiate touchdown against Western Carolina a great feeling, the freshman running back said a similar score against FSU would be indescribable. "That's been running through my mind since signing day," James said. "Going into this week, we'll just have to see what's going to happen." If Saturday's showing was any indication, James might get his vengeful touchdown. Against Western Carolina, he took punt back 77 yards for a score, helping him reset UF's single-game record for punt return yardage -in one half. With 155 yards before halftime, James surpassed Jacquez Green's mark of 145 set in 1996 against Kentucky. More importantly, James' return didn't get called back on a penalty. Against Tennessee and Georgia earlier this season, James also took punts back all the way, only to have penalties negate the scores. A yellow hanky flew on Saturday's touchdown return, but it was called on the Catamounts. "I ran past the flag, so I'm thinking, 'Here it goes again,"' James said. Watching James take the penalties in stride -including the one Saturday -has impressed UF coach Urban Meyer. "I was going to choke whoever that flag was on," Meyer joked. "(But) Brandon James has not one time complained or moaned about a guy having a penalty" His touchdown was the Gators' first punt-return score since Lito Sheppard took one back in 2000, also against Kentucky. After six returns in the first two quarters, James took a breather in the second half and didn't touch the SEE FOOT, PAGE 15 Gators not entitled to title game Ilow me to sort through this fiGS mess for you. I'll avoid stating the obvious, such as the fact that it's going to take a minor miracle for the Gators to find themselves in the title game after the pollsters didn't drop Michigan following its loss to Ohio State last weekend. -One thing, however, I don't want to hear is complaining when UF doesn't end its season in Arizona, or that the Gators have somehow been shafted/ screwed/jobbed/robbed or any other term you want to use, because it is no one's fault but their own. In the crazy realm that college football occupies, no one-loss team is owed anything. The Gators aren't owed a national title bid any more than Michigan, Southern Cal, Arkansas or anyone else, because they failed to take care of their own business. If the Gators don't fall against Auburn in mid-October, we're talking about whether they can hold on and Dan Treat Dan in Motion dtreat@alligator.org face the Buckeyes rather than having to argue their worth. At least one Gator agrees. "We could have avoided all this if we had beaten Auburn," defensive tackle Clint McMillan said. "It's not like we're an undefeated team saying we're getting cheated that Way, because if we handled business against Auburn, then we have a shot at the national championship, and there's no dispute about it." If you want to talk legitimate'gripes, let's talk 2004 Auburn, which won all of its games, including a conference title game but was still denied a chance to play for it all. If you want to talk strength of schedule, the Gators come up short SEE MOTION, PAGE 15 Brewer attends to father By JENNA MARINA and LOUIS ANASTASIS Alligator Staff Writers While the rest of the Gators practiced Monday afternoon in preparation for tonight's game, forward Corey Brewer was more than 600 miles away tending to his father's ailing health. Brewer flew to Portland, Tenn., on Sunday morning to be at his father, Ellis', side while he was hospitalized for two days for breathing problems related to fluid buildup in his chest. Ellis had his left leg amputated in late October after a sore on his foot progressed into gangrene, and the fluid buildup was a result of sitting in bed as he recovered. "Sometimes when you have a surgery like that -it kind of shocks the body," Brewer's older brother, Jason, said. "But he's doing good. Everything's looking up. He's just taking it one day at a time." Brewer decided to catch an early-morning flight to Gainesville today after his father's condition improved somewhat. "I'm doing all nignt, Ellis said. "I've been moving around. I've just had to go through a long healing process." Perhaps Brewer helped the healing process, since his presence definitely boosted his father's morale. "I wasn't expecting him to come," Ellis said. "It meant a whole lot." Brewer Ellis will be watching his son on television as the Gators take on Prairie View A&M tonight at 7:30 in the O'Connell Center.
