For sororities, Bid Day only the beginning
* PANHELLENIC SORORITIES
GAVE OUT BIDS MONDAY.
By ILEANA MORALES
Alligator Contributing Writer
For Kayla Griffin, the second
time around is the charm. After
quitting Panhellenic Recruitment
last year, she came back to school
this year with the confidence to
Griffin was one of 1,200 girls
who rushed to join one of UF's
sorority chapters during the
Panhellenic Council's recruit-
ment program, or "rush week."
The week began Aug. 18 and
ended Monday with sororities
making bids for the candidates.
As a sophomore, Griffin felt
better prepared to tackle the
intensity of rush week, which
proved too stressful her fresh-
"It was pouring the whole
time, and I was moving in at the
same time," said Griffin of her
first attempt to rush. "I didn't
know anything about sororities.
I didn't see myself as a sorority
As she discovered that most
of the friends she made freshman.
year were in sororities, Griffin
started to see herself as a Greek.
She was impressed to find
sorority women who shared the.
same interests and values. Many
of them were in the same clubs
as her, such as Campus Crusade
"I like the idea of having a
large support system and some- L

'Grey's Anatomy,' and 20 girls

rounds of activities. Each round

The week started off with two
days of visiting each sorority

known as Pi Chis, led the girls
through Sorority Row. The coun-

blue hats and tie-dyed shirts.

make it enjoyable," said sopho-

New lounge area, other renovations in store for Reitz
By JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Staff Writer
By spring 2008, students look-
ing for a place to chill in the Reitz
Union will have more than the
circular blue couch at the first floor
entrance, according to one Reitz
Mike Mironack, director of oper-
ations for the ReitzJUnion, said the
north side of the first floor would
be undergoing renovation for the
Mironack said the changes to the
first floor include an open lounge
area for students, much-needed
administrative offices and updated
The renovation is expected
to cost about $1.3 million. It
will be paid for by the Capital
Improvement Trust Fund, which
uses student tuition money for non-
academic improvements at UF.
The restrooms warrant renova-
tion since they're some of the "most
heavily used facilities on campus,"
Though wood boards are block-
ing the north side of the building's
first floor, Mironack said the en-
trance would not be closed down at
any point during the semester.
The biggest nuisance students
might face is a sign redirecting
them to different commodes during
the restrooms' updating, he said.
"Our goal is to minimize rerout-
ing and inconvenience to our cus-
tomers," Mironack said, specifying
that everyone who comes into the
Reitz Union is a customer.
He said the goal for renovating
the sparsely used lounge areas is
to give students a place where they
can "come hang out and do what
they need to do."
The new lounge will include
two-seat couches and better light-
It will also feature tablet arm-
chairs and more electrical outlets
for laptop users, Mironack said.
Administrative offices on the
first floor will include enough space
to house about 24 Reitz Union offi-
cials from the administrative staff
and event and catering services,
For now, the three departments
have been temporarily moved to
the third floor, with multiple ad-
ministrators sharing office space.
Mironack shares his office space,
once a conference room, with three
24 officials including Union
administrators and event and
catering services 0th
Christopher Dudley, a UF fresh-
man, said he plans to use the new
lounge facilities come spring.
Dudley said he has quite a long
break between some of his classes
and could use a lounge area with
more electrical outlets.
"I haven't been around campus
too much, but I haven't seen too
many places where you can really
do that like the Reitz and the Hub,"
Lindsay Weaver, a UF journal-
ism junior, expressed the same
ideas, though she said she didn't
think there was anything wrong
with the women's restroom.

City edges closer to homeless center
By ANDREW TAN
Alligator Staff Writer
Gainesville city commissioners came
another step closer Monday to establish-
ing a center for homeless services.
In a 5-to-2 vote, the Commission ap-
proved a lease that may establish a one-
stop center at 3335 N Main Terrace for
local homeless people to receive food,
showers, counseling and other services.
However, the lease will need to be ap--
proved by City Attorney Marion Radson.
The City Plan Board will also need to
rezone the area to before services can be
offered to the homeless.
Commissioners Ed Braddy and Rick
Braddy suggested that a flaw in the
design of the one-stop is requiring it to be
near a Regional Transit System bus stop.
Bryant echoed Braddy's concerns and
said it might be better if the center were far
away from the city. The City of Madison,
Wis., he said, has had positive results by
putting its center for homeless services
outside the city.
But Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan said put--
ting it outside city limits and away from
local RTS routes could make it difficult for
homeless people to access the center.
Rosemarie Watson, a member of the.
local Lions Club, a community-service or-
ganization, said the one-stop center could
have an adverse effect on her organization.
Watson was one of several people who
spoke out against the center's location
because of the negative effect it could have
on the neighborhood.
"I fear you're going to' put us out of
business," Watson told commissioners.

* THE MINOR FOCUSES ON
AMERICAN INDIAN STUDIES.
By ILEANA MORALES
Alligator Contributing Writer
Adam Recvlohe has waited
a year for what he wanted, and
now- it's here. After lobbying
Student Government and UF ad-
ministrators, Recvlohe was able
to make the American Indian and
Indigenous Studies minor a real-
ity at UF this semester.
The new minor is offered by
the department of anthropology
'in the College of Liberal Arts and
Recvlohe, an indigenous Yuchi
and Mvskoke, said his concern
about the lack of programs for
American Indians inspired him to
push for the minor.
The minor requires the comple-
tion of courses Native American
History to 1815 and Native
American History Since 1806.
It also requires the completion
of nine elective history hours.
The road to the minor has been
long and frustrating.
Recvlohe sought SG's.help in
creating the minor in summer
2006. He found a senator who
supported the creation, but no
real help came for six months:
While waiting for SG to act, he
found the help he needed from
Sheila Dickisqn,, associate deann
for academic affairs in the CLAS.
Dickison was optimistic about the
program's future. She said the col-
lege had enough classes related to
Native American history to offer
the minor without hiring addi-
tional faculty or adding courses.
"This minor provides diver-
sity in our curriculum and allows
students to investigate an im-
portant area in our own cultural
heritage," Dickison said, "The
minor will provide visibility for
American Indian and Indigenous
Studies on this campus in a way
that has not existed before."
Recvlohe said he was disap-
pointed that the university did
not offer a mi-
U F nor when he
Academics first enrolled.
"I wish peo-
ple had noticed
before," said Recvlohe, a political
science major. "The minor could
have been there, but no one really
wanted to organize it."
Recvlohe, president of the 500
Nations club, said his goal this
year is to be supportive, to incom-
ing American Indian students.
He said he hopes the minor will
inspire UF to make a better effort
to recruit more American Indian
Recvlohe describes the minor

Chomp the. Vote,
swamp the polls
F finally, students can register to vote on campus.
Well, let's back up. Students have always been able
to register on campus. The forms have been available on
campus for years. Chomp the Vote, a Student-Government
funded organization, was created in 2004 and took voter reg-
istration even more seriously. That year, the organization regis-
tered 8,000 students that year.
But the organization dropped off the radar in 2005 and 2006
- and 2006 was an important year for national, state and local
politics. Sadly, the number of 18- to 26-year-old Floridians who
voted in 2006 went down from 2002.
Chomp's new director, Frank Bracco, hopes to turn things
around. And he's off to a great start. While very few new vot-
ers were registered by Chomp last year, more than 300 students
have been registered to vote in just the first three days of
Great job, Frank. We're happy to hear that Chomp is once
again functional because it is, without a doubt one, of the most
important organizations on campus.
Chomp is also working to increase students' interest and
knowledge about politics. It will host educational forums for
upcoming primaries and local elections. Chomp hopes to regis-
ter at least 3,000 new voters by the end of the year.
One student who registered Monday, Claressa Midgette,
summed it up best: "If you don't vote, you better not com-
It's also important for you to be registered in Alachua

I heard through the Greekvine that the Greek community
needs a makeover. Apparently some silly television show
filled with sex and sex and beer oh my! bruised
their peach-like reputation. I put together some slogans for
them. Here's my top sorority slogan: "To-ga, to-ga, to-gather
under the bonds of sisterhood is a wonderful idea." It says,
"We're a little formal, but we're here for the party, too." They
can thank me later.
This "silly" television show cleverly named "Greek"
on the ABC Family network has come under intense scru-
tiny by members of the (surprise!) Greek community for its
supposedly inaccurate and negative portrayal of sororities
An article in Monday's Alligator described the contro-
versy. Christine Bainer, president of UF's Delta Delta Delta
Sorority, and Michelle Shimberg, international president of
Delta Delta Delta and a former member of UF's chapter,
spoke out against the show's stereotypical depictions.
I make it a point to be thorough in my research, so I sat
down and watched the show. I also wanted to mock what I
assumed to be a cross between "Dawson's Creek" and "One
Life To Live." One side note on a corny scale of one to 10,
one being sincerely enjoyable and 10 being cringe-worthy,
shows aired on ABC Family usually rank about a nine.
I watched this nearly unwatchable show. The acting made
Paris Hilton look like an Oscar-caliber actress. Afterward, I
knew I had the solution to mend the fences between ABC
Family and Greeks across the United States. OK, ready for
my golden words? "Greek" is, get this, fictional! Remember
when Laura married Luke, her rapist, on "General Hospital"?'
Yeah, sorry to break it to you, but that was fictional, too.
We all like to make the members of the Greek community
out to be villains, but I agree ABC Family exaggerated the
negative aspects of Greek life. It's entertainment, though.
What do they expect? As much as group studying and lead-
ership activities make for great plotlines, I think ABC Family
opted to go the other way. -
As for Greeks, stop act-
ing like ABC Family hit you
with a below-the-pledge-pin
punch. We all know you'd
love to maintain an image
comparable to the Make a
Wish Foundation with a keg,
but you haven't earned that
right either. I'm not trying to
turn the tables here. I'm just
shifting them slightly
I see your giving and role-model potential, but many
times it's masked by your superficial, discriminating, holier-
than-Tim-Tebow behavior. As someone who experienced
sorority recruitment firsthand, I'm going out there on a limb
and say appearance is heavily weighted in the process. Some
people say that as admission standards go up, looks go down
You can fight me all you want on the subject I'm a
certified red belt though but we all know the truth, and
sorority recruitment meafis Judgment Day is upon you. I'm
pretty sure when you enter a sorority you don't take a vow
of celibacy. And pledging fraternities doesn't involve volun-
teering at local alcohol abuse centers.
But this isn't a Greek-blasting session. I enjoy Greek peo-
ple. Some of my good friends are Greek. Being Greek doesn't
make you a worse or better person.
Maybe I don't have a winning slogan on my hands. But
I do have some advice. Note to the Greek community: ABC
Family didn't start a holy war against you. We know you're
trying to uphold your purer-than-glacial-water image, but
try being honest for once.
And everyone else prone to criticizing the Greek com-
munity: Grab the nearest Greek and take a long, judgmental,
comparative look in the mirror. You might find you're both

Marching band worth the weight
I am writing in response to
Monday's article, "UF band

Basler's frustrations in being as-
signed to play a sousaphone after
years at the oboe.
I joined the UF Band in 1961,
having played trumpet and bari-
tone in high school, only to find all

La Casita headed by interim director after resignation
* THE FORMER DIRECTOR'S LAST
DAY WAS AUG. 10.
By KORI FREDERICK
If you pass the Institute of Hispanic-
Latino Cultures, you might be under the
impression that it's closed. Especially if
you knew that its director, Leticia Martinez,
recently resigned her position.
Although the institute known as La
Casita is sharing a building with the
Institute of Black Culture, it's not closed
A graduate student was appointed inter-
im director of the institute to compensate
for Martinez's absence.
Desiree Zerquera, who has been with
the center in various capacities since 2003,
assumed the job at the beginning of the
She will serve as interim director until a
permanent director is hired.
Zerquera declined to talk about her new
position at the center.
In a letter received by the Dean of
Students Office July 20, Martinez said she
was leaving UF to move back to Texas to be
closer to her family.
She said she had also accepted an offer
to serve as director of multicultural affairs
at the University of Texas at Arlington.
"La Casita has been a home away from
home for not only students, but for me as
well," Martinez wrote in the letter. "As I
prepare to move, I know that I will always
hold a special place in my heart and count-
less memories of my time here."
Martinez's last day was Aug. 10, the end
of the summer C session.
"Unfortunately we won't know when
we are able to hire someone else because
Leticia left after the hiring freeze was
in place," said Tamara Cohen, Dean of
Student's Office director of multicultural
and diversity affairs.
University administrators announced a
hiring freeze during the summer but are
stilling faculty for 15 high-priority posi-

sad to see her go, they are optimistic about
the future of the center.
"Everything is running smoothly,"
Cohen said. "We are renovating the center.
It's getting new paint and new carpet. All
the programs are still in place."
Martinez reinvented the center to create
a "home away from home" atmosphere,
where all students are welcome to come
and learn about Hispanic culture.
"She did.an amazing job," said Edgardo
Hernandez, a senior who has worked at
the center for four years. "She always kept
the future in mind. She brought in good
student leaders and hired a lot of freshmen
to ensure the future of La Casita would be
The Hispanic-Latino population is the
university's largest minority population.
The center organizes events for students
like Gatormania and the Hispanic Student
Assembly, Hernandez said. The center
also served as a meeting place for Asian
American students in lieu of a non-existent
Institute for Asian and Asian American
Hernandez said Martinez prepared the
student staff for a time when she might
leave the center.
"She taught us really well how to keep
the center going and what to look for when
it comes time to search for a new director,"
he said. "And with help from the Dean of
Students Office, our secretary and Desiree,
I have all the faith in the world that we will
keep the center running."
La Casita, located on West University
Avenue, was founded in 1994 and was
the first center of its kind in the Southeast.
The students are proud of how much it has
grown over the past years under Martinez's
direction and are ready for the challenges
this next year, he said.
"We're really focused on keeping La
Casita running," Hernandez said.

Students should stock up early for hurricane threat
By CHANTALLE CARLES
Alligator Contributing Writer
As students continue to move in to new
homes in Gainesville, some forget to put hur-
ricane preparedness on their to-do lists.
"After Katrina we learned how certain
storms could prevent or delay emergency
response," said Danny Hinson, emergency
management planner for Alachua County
"That's when having taken the time to
prepare for the storm becomes the most im-
portant," he said.
According to a recently released statewide
poll by Florida International University's
Metropolitan Center, less than 25 percent of
Florida residents have supplies that will last
While less than a quarter of residents
surveyed have some supplies on hand in the
event of a'storm, 54.4 percent of respondents
feel "extremely" or "somewhat vulnerable"
However, some students don't share the
feeling of vulnerability.
"Relative to other parts of the state, I don't
think a hurricane making landfall is that seri-
ous of a threat to us here," said John Hunt, a
UF history senior.
"We would probably just get the remnants
of a storm if anything," he said.
UF political science senior Anne
Lesser shares Hunt's sentiments. She said
Gainesville's location in the middle of the
state is why she doesn't worry during the
"I've never worried about hurricanes in
Gainesville, and I'm not worried about them
now," she said.
Both said it would take a hurricane to
make landfall in Gainesville for apartment
complexes to actively encourage hurricane
Jack Ryals, an employee of the local hard-
ware store Jackson Industries Stoneworks,
said students like Hunt and Lesser should be
mindful of Hurricane Katrina.
"They should think that had they been in
Katrina and didn't have food for three days,
what would they have done," he said. "It

doesn't take much to get prepared, so why
not do it?"
Hinson said he and other emergency
management planners actively encourage
residents who feel vulnerable to be proactive
and adequately prepare for the hurricane
Alachua County Fire Rescue organizes
its yearly Get Ready campaign in June at the
Oaks Mall to accomplish this.
At this year's campaign, Hinson said he
ran his own small survey of Gainesville resi-
dents to understand'the level of preparedness
He said of the 12 people he talked to, 90
percent felt they knew what to do if a hur-
ricane threatened their home. Most of the
people he talked to were students.
"We set up 20 to 30 booths with pamphlets
of information to educate the population on
hurricane safety," Hinson said.
1Hinson said these responsess are encour-
aging. UF's emergency management is also
helping educate students about hurricane
preparedness, Hinson said. The amount of in-
formation the county and university provide
is sufficient enough so that all students know
what to do in the event of a hurricane.
"A responsible student Would -take this
information to heart," he said.
Kenneth Allen, UF's Environmental
Health and Safety Office emergency manage-
ment coordinator, said on- and off-campus
students should make preparations.
"The first things students should look into
is insurance to cover their belongings," Allen

Plan B celebrates first year of over-the-counter sales
By VALERIE JONES
Alligator Contributing Writer
While many have had the option for over
a year, some students still don't know about
Or how it works.
Plan B, a birth control drug that can be
used after unprotected sex or sexual assault,
celebrated its one-year anniversary of being
available over the counter.
The Food and Drug Administration ap-
proved the over-the-counter sale of the drug
on Aug. 24, 2006, to people 18 and over.
Previously, the medication was only avail-
able to women by prescription.
After the initial over-the-counter approval
by the FDA, Staci Fox, president and CEO of
Planned Parenthood of North Central Florida
Inc., said there was a huge demand for the pill
that has since subsided. She said she hopes the
anniversary will call attention to the drug.
However, females under 18 still need a pre-
scription from their health care provider.
Fox said Plan B is sometimes confused with
the abortion pill RU-486, which can be used to
terminate an existing pregnancy.
In addition to being confused about what
the product does, some students are confused
about its name.
Some call it Plan B while others call it the
"morning-after pill." Both refer to the same
"Plan B is actually. the product name," Fox
said. "'Emergency contraception' and 'morn-
ing-after pill' are just references to the actual

receive. There is no generic prod-
president and CEO of Planned Parenthood
of North Central Florida Inc.
Plan B is a series of two pills that should
. be taken as soon as possible within the first
72 hours of unprotected sex. If taken properly,
Plan B is 89 percent effective in preventing a
pregnancy, according to the pill's Web site.
Currently, Plan B is the, only packaged
brand of emergency contraception approved
by the FDA to be available over the counter.
"Plan B is still on patent, so that should be
the product they receive," Fox said. "There is
no-generic product available."
According to the Plan B Web site, the drug
contains a chemical -found in other forms of
birth control. The chemical mainly works to
stop the release of an egg from the ovary.
If the chemical fails at that, Plan B can also
work by preventing fertilization or by prevent-
ing the egg from attaching to the uterus.
Plan B, however will not affect a fertilized
egg already attached to the uterus.
"It's important that all women have access
to emergency contraception so they have a
-second chance to prevent pregnancy," Fox

Memorial service is somber reminder of bicycle/vehicle safety

UF graduate student Welch McNair
Bostick III was a semester away from
receiving his doctoral degree from the
agricultural and biological engineering
department when he was struck by a car
while riding his bicycle along Williston
Road on Aug. 27. Bostick died on Aug.
28, leaving behind his wife, Carmen, and a
10-month-old son, Luca.
An informal memorial service for
Bostick will be held today at 9 a.m., near
the west entrance of Rogers Hall. His
family, including his wife, son, father,

awareness of bicycle safety for those who
"It has helped make everyone in the de-
partment more aware of the reality of dan-
gers that we face when we ride bicycles,"
said James Jones, a distinguished professor
in agricultural and biological engineering,
and a teacher of Bostick.
Jawoo Koo, a fellow student and friend
of Bostick, said the accident has changed
his view on bike safety.
"I saw a car driving through,bike lanes
and I wanted to call a cop right away to
ticket it," Koo said.
James Leary, a member of Bostick's de-
partment, has been involved in two vehicle-
bicycle crashes. The undergraduate adviser
says both resulted in broken bones, surgery
and extensive rehabilitation.
Leary is convinced the first driver who
hit him just didn't see him.
L eary is a lucky one. In the
past year, Bostick was not the
only student bicyclist killed.
Henry Crane, 21, died after
being struck by a vehicle at the
intersection of Archer Road and
Jon Lizaso, a post-doctoral
associate in agricultural and bio-
logical engineering, and friend
of Bostick's family, said he thinks
people just don't see bicyclists,
even in the daylight.
"The cruise control of your
brain is looking for cars, trucks,
buses," he said.
Lizaso is the coordinator of
today's memorial service, and has
been instrumental in promoting
bicycle safety in Gainesville.
Laura Hallam, executive
director of the Florida Bicycle
Association, said most students
are not aware that bicycles are'
rtlett Grace considered vehicles.

Sophomore Erika Manion of Kissim-

year without air conditioning. After all, she
accepted a position as resident adviser in
Buckman Hall with full knowledge of the
building's lack of air conditioning.
"I was surprised to arrive at school (this
year) and hear portable air conditioners
were allowed," said Manion. "I thought I
could make it without, but my mom stayed
in here one night without it and said she
Manion said her mom made a quick
trip to Target the next day, and paid more
than $500 for the portable machine.
"I'm glad my mom did it," the resident
adviser admitted. "I've always had air

UAA gives $6 million to
The University of Florida Athletic As-
sociation donated $6 million to the univer-
sity to support several academic programs
threatened by state budget cuts. President
Bernie Machen made the announcement at
the Joint Civic Club Luncheon at the Hilton
University Conference Center on Aug. 15.
The money will be used in part to pay
for the continuation of the Florida Oppor- "
tunity Scholars program. Offered for the
second year, the scholarships pay tuition
and riom and,board for qualified students
who are the first in their family to attend
a four-year university and have family
income less than $40,000.
UAA has given nearly $40 million back
to the university since 1990. '

- The two buildings are listed on the
National Historic Register, and in 1906,
housed the entire campus.
"We have addressed previous road-
blocks," said Blansett. "Electrical service
to these buildings has been upgraded and
portable air conditioners are available that
will not compromise the historic architec-
ture of the buildings."
To participate in the program, residents
provide their own portable unit that-must
meet or exceed health and safety specifica-
tions. No additional utility charges will
be assessed this year, but housing staff
anticipates additional charges to residents
participating in the program in the future.
According to Manion, about 50 percent
of the residents in her building have pur-
chased AC units.
"I told one of the-residents that she can
come watch TV with me, since she doesn't
have air conditioning."

Expect another exceptional year from the Razorbacks. The rushing
game is looking good with juniors Darren McFadden and Felix Jones
leading the way. Arkansas led the league in rushing yardage in both
2005 and 2006, as the duo combined to average-201.07 yards per
.,ame. The Razorbacks also ranked second nationally in yards per
carry with 5.94. Wide receiver Marcus Monk has proven to be an
unstoppable force. He averaged 19.2 yards per catch last season
and ranked second-best in the SEC. With 24 career touchdown
receptions, the senior only needs eight more to break the league's
career mark, currently held by UF's Chris Doering. Claiming the
record could be a challenge, however, because Monk is expected to
miss four to six weeks after undergoing knee surgery Aug. 13.
S'ArKansas -ii struggle somewhat i is year after losing four major
players. Tre Razorbacks look to replace leader Sam Olajubutu,
a semi-finalist for the Butkus Award. They must also replace last
season's leading sacker, Jamaal Anderson, tackles Keith Jackson
and Chris Houston, who all left for the NFL. The coaching staff
expects big things from sophomore defensive tackle Malcolm
Sheppard, who finished last season with 10 tackles and two hurries
in a limited role behind Anderson. Senior Weston Dacus anchors the
linebacker core, which welcomes back Freddie Fairchild, who should
make more of an impact this season now he has recovered from an
ACL injury that sidelined him almost all of last season.
Last year's record: 10-4

Troy at Arkansas: Sept. 1

The primary offensive problem the Rebels face heading into the
'season is their quarterback. Former walk-on Seth Adams was-
finally named as the starter Friday, after the position opened up for
competition in the spring. Adams beat out last season's starting QB
Brent Schaeffer and redshirt freshman Michael Herrick. Other than
that major question mark, the offense is pretty much set with nine
returning starters. The Rebels will rely heavily on standout running
back BenJarvus Green-Ellis, who rushed for over 1,000 yards last
season. The return of Dexter McCluster will significantly boost the
wide receiver group. The sophomore compiled 574 all-purpose yards
in the first six games before being sidelined for the rest of the season
with head and shoulder injuries.
To dub this season a rebuilding year is a major understatement. The
linebacker position is completely depleted. After losing stars Rory
Johnsonfand All-American Patrick Willis to the NFL, the projected
starting linebackers have recorded a whopping seven tackles.
The Rebels are hoping newcomer Chris Strong, ranked the No. 3
defensive end by Rivals.com, can make an immediate impact as
middle linebacker. Coach Ed Orgeron said it remains to be seen if
Kendrick Lewis can remain consistent at free safety, and the coach
is optimistic about Dustin Mouzon and Terrell Jackson at corner. The
Rebels also expect to see some production out of defensive tackle
Peria Jerry, who was limited last season with injuries.

At 6-toot-2, 215 pounds, warren McFadden
proved that no one is ever too big to trick-or-treat.
The All-American running back.dressed up as
a clown for Halloween last year and wore the
It was a side of McFadden most people fail to see
when they're watching the junior's roadrunner
speed on gameday most people, that is,
except for his teammates.
A "Darren has always been easygoing, joking since
he was a freshman," linebacker Weston Dacus said. "We talk about
this with each other, how he hasn't changed a bit since he's gotten
The only thing that may have surprised the Razorbacks was the way
McFadden rose to his superstar status.
Initially fellow running back Felix Jones was the better player, with his
breakaway speed and polished moves, Dacus said.
"He was ahead of Darren for a while," Dacus said. "I don't know what
got into Darren, but the coaches realized that he was special."
Now, after a remarkable sophomore season in which McFadden
placed second to Ohio State's Troy Smith for the Heisman Trophy,
Arkansas is excited about the possibility of sending McFadden to
New York again.
"I think he's at the top, the front-runner," Arkansas coach Houston
Nutt said. "There's no question about it, or he wouldn't be on every
magazine. I think everybody knows that."
As for McFadden, the pressure to perform isn't really pressure at all,
but more of a challenge.
"It's something that motivates me," McFadden said of his potential
candidacy for the Heisman Trophy. "I know that I will have to come
with my A-game when I'm out there and not slack around. I must
come out for every game."
Arkansas will ROCK because the team is well rounded, with a stellar returning group and solid
reserves. The Razorbacks as a whole have enough athleticism and speed to make up for some
inexperience in the offensive line and linebacker positions.
Arkansas will GET ROLLED if the team can't stay healthy. Wide receiver Marcus Monk suffered a
knee injury Aug. 9, and could be out for the first game. Starting defensive tackle Marcus Harrison is
already missing the first game because he is still recovering from major knee surgery.

BenJarvus Green-Ellis knows exactly who to
thank for his success at running back.
Without his offensive line, the senior admitted
it would have been difficult to rush for 1,000
yards last season.
To show his appreciation, Green-Ellis takes
the offensive line out to dinner every Monday
W night to one of the few places in Oxford
Chili's, Ajax or Applebee's but the bill
doesn't always go on his tab.
"I pay sometimes," Green-Ellis said. "I can't afford treating guys
who are 350 pounds all the time."
And after the senior's summer workouts, don't be so sure that
his friends on the line will offer to pick up the check.
During the offseason, Green-Ellis refused to take a break. He
said he put himself in the best shape of his life by lifting weights
He increased his 5-foot-11 frame to 225 pounds and said he
increased his bench 30 pounds to 435.
Last year, Green-Ellis rushed 234 times; averaged 83.3 yards
per game and scored seven touchdowns.
The Rebels are expecting another stellar year from the running
back, and Green-Ellis is more than ready to take on the
"If my team requires me to go out and carry the ball 30-35 times
(per game) then that's what I have to do," Green-Ellis said.
"There's no set number that I'm setting up for myself."
Mississippi will ROCK because they have strong individual players in running back BenJarvus
Green-Ellis, junior offensive tackle Michael Oher and sophomore defensive end Marcus Tillman.
The Rebels also have secured some fairly strong recruiting classes recently.
Mississippi will GET ROLLED because it is Mississippi. True, the Rebels lost four games by a
combined total of 17 points last season, but they consistently failed to finish. Not to mention, of their
four wins last season, the Rebels failed to win convincingly, with a 27-7 victory over Northwestern
State being their only major blowout if you can call it that.

Kentucky's offense makes Steve Spurrier drool. A first team All-
SEC selection, Andre' Woodson directs a high-powered passing
attack with wideout Keenan Burton returning as his favorite
target. Behind Woodson stands one great runner, Rafael Little,
and another good one in Tony Dixon. Both are capable of
handling the starting load, but Little has an explosive potential
that makes him dangerous on returns. There's also All-SEC
tight end Jacob Tamme to check down to. The offensive line is
a work in progress, meaning Woodson must fire quickly.
Linebacker Wesley Woodyard returns to lead an average to
weak unit. The defensive line is soft on rush defense and
the tdam needs another corner to step up beside Trevard
Lindley, who was on the wrong end of a memorable Tim
Tebow stiff arm last season. Both starting safeties return in
Marcus McClinton and Roger Williams. The linebackers are
the strength. Keep an eye on sophomore linebacker Micah
Johnson, a highly regarded true freshman in 2006 who is
pushing to start in the middle.

QB Andre' Woodson
A year ago at this time, Woodson fiercely fought
Curtis Pulley for the starting quarterback job,,
And it seemed nobody wanted him to win it.
Many thought Woodson, who struggled as a
sophomore starter the year before, would lose
out to the younger Pulley, the athletically hyped
2004 Kentucky Mr. Football.
Woodson proved them wrong with 3,515
passing yards and 31 touchdowns.
Now, Pulley is redshirting to fix academic problems that forced -e
"to withdraw from school in the spring.
If Woodson studies, he'll see that many rate him as the No. 2
senior quarterback in the country behind Louisville's Brian Brohm.
"I came to this university to help turn things around," said
Woodson, who ended up throwing passes to Pulley last year. "We'd
been a doormat for so many years, and now, we want people and
te ams to know that we are a contender and want to be a contender
year in year out."
Wooason has done so much for the Wildcats program, from
leading the team to its first bowl in win since 1984 to saving Coach
"It's nmaybe one of the biggest transitions from production,
leadership, accountability that I've seen a young man make from
one year to the next in my coaching career," said Brooks, a former
coacn at Oregon and with the St. Louis Rams. "And thank God he
did because I'm back here."
Kentucky will ROCK because its offense is nearly unstoppable. The Wildcats have all-conference players
at quarterback, running back, wide receiver and tight end. They can pound teams with the second-best
running back combo in the SEC, Rafael Little and Tony Dixon, or air it out with Andre' Woodson.
Kentucky will GET ROLLED because the program has yet to oreak the triumvirate atop the SEC East.
Even though they beat Georgia last year, they are yet again predicted to finish behind UF, Tennessee and
Georgia in the East.

In 2006, true freshman quarterback Matthew Stafford took
hold of the starting job and impressed late as Georgia knocked
off three straight top-25 teams to end the year. Despite the
optimistic finish, Coach Mark Richt has hinted at a possible
rotation of Stafford and Joe Cox, much like the David Greene-D.J.
Shockley experiment. But make no mistake, this is Stafford's
offense. Experienced seniors Kregg Lumpkin and Thomas Brown
return at running back and more experience comes back at wide
receiver in Mohamed Massaquoi and Sean Bailey. The offensive
line has been overhauled with a new position coach.
The obvious weak link of the team is on defense, where the
team lost ends Charles Johnson and Quentin Moses to the
NFL Draft and cornerback Paul Oliver to the supplemental
draft. Safety Tra Battle and linebackers Tony Taylor and Jarvis
Jackson, who played important roles in 2006, also are gone.
The cupboard is bare as only three starters return, led by
strong safety Kelin Johnson. First-year starters make up the
defensive line, while middle linebacker Brandon Miller leads
all returning linebackers with 23 tackles last year.
Last year's record: 9-4, (4-4 SEC)

QB Matthew Stafford
Or, Nar.,,rai Signing Day 2006, the pursuit began.
The top three quarterbacks in the nation, Mitch
's Mustain, Matthew Stafford and Tim Tebow, signed
with SEC schools.
Over the next four years or three, perhaps
everyone could judge and critique the three
quarterbacks as they played against each other
and the nation's toughest defenses.
After one season, Mustain goes to USC and Tebow wears a national
-championship ring, but Stafford holds the experience edge.
"It's tough for a true freshman to come in and get a grip on the offense
like that," center Fernandp Velasco said. "Now he's got a year under
his belt. He's been in the system for quite a while now. I expect a great
season out of him this year."
In 2006,. Stafford was the only one of the trio to gain a starting job and
keep it through the end of the season.
Along the way, Stafford took his lumps, including throwing three
interceptions in three different games.
But he found his groove late with wins at Auburn, against rival Georgia
Tech and in the Chick-fil-A bowl against Virginia Tech.
Stafford's stats weren't impressive 7 TDs, 13 INTs but he got the
This year, he's expected to do a lot more.
Stafford leads an experienced offense that will likely have to match
opposing teams score for score.
He has two solid running backs and two solid wide receivers at his
"Instead of trying to fit in, he's now leading our program," Coach Mark
Richt said. "He's come so far. ... He's so much better than a year ago. I
hope it shows on the field."
Georgia will ROCK because they have as much momentum as anybody in the league. With Matthew
Stafford finally comfortable at quarterback, the Bulldogs oeat Auburn, Georgia Tech and Virginia Tech to
close out the 2006 season. They get injured stars in running back Thomas Brown, wide receiver Sean
Bailey and kicker Brandon Coutu back too.
Georgia will GET ROLLED because the inexperienced defense will get ravaged early on. The first two
games are against offensive juggernauts Oklahoma State and South Carolina, both ranked in the top 20
in Division I total offense a year ago. The Bulldogs could very easily open 0-2 if their defense doesn't grow
up in a hurry.

Gators nab former USC running back
By MIKE MCCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
The UF football team's practice squad just got a lot
Former USC running back Emmanuel Moody an-
nounced Monday that he will transfer to UF, a decision
that almost instantly solidifies the Gators' ground attack
for next year.
Due to NCAA transfer rules, the sophomore will have
to sit out this season.
"From the campus down to the coaches, I just really 4.
felt that Florida was a good fit for me," Moody said. '
Moody made his choice on Saturday after visit-
ing North Carolina and UF, and he canceled trips to
Oklahoma State and Texas after coming to Gainesville.
Moody didn't have long to pick a new home after
filing a transfer request on Aug. 15, and his time to visit
schools was limited since classes at most of his choices
began the next week.
"From the campus down to the coaches, I
just really felt that Florida was a good fit for
former USC running back -
"Time was definitely a factor, but I just knew Florida
was a perfect fit," he said. "I enrolled already, and I'll be
there on Wednesday.
"Everything is all set up. Now I just have to go through
the .NCAA Clearinghouse."
A native of Coppell, Texas, Moody was rated the No.
11 running back out of high school by Scout.com, and he
signed with the Trojans after making a verbal commit-
ment to Texas.
As a freshman at USC, Moody rushed for 459 yards on
79 attempts in nine games before an ankle injury sidelined
him for the last four contests.
His performance was good enough for The Sporting
News to name him Pac-10 Offensive Freshman of the
Year, and he was also featured on a regional cover of

Moody: sitting out has upside
TRANSFER, from page 26
Sports Illustrated's college football pre-
view along with two other Trojans backs.
After a hamstring injury in spring
practice, Moody fell into a 10-player com-
petition for field time, and he told the Los
Angeles Times that he felt "forgotten."
Now, he will have to watch a season
unfold from the sidelines and will func-
tion only in practice.
"It'll build my mind up," he said.
"Sitting out a year, everyone sees it as
'Oh man, you're not playing football this
year,' and there's a lot of negative energy
towards that. I feel like there are a lot of
positives in this. A few of them are that I
can really just sit back and be a spectator,
really just get the feel of everything and
also learn the offense."
After his trip to Gainesville last
Thursday, Moody summed up the area
with one word: country.
But he says he didn't mean it as a bad
"When I say country I mean that it
reminds me of home. Texas is considered
"I lived in (Los Angeles) for a year
and kind of got the mindset that any-
thing that's not the city is the country.
Gainesville is the suburbs, so there's no
transition from Texas to Florida. I feel like
the south is the south, and it's all just kind
.of the same. It's just like home."
The move also puts Moody closer to
his father, -Eugene Moody, who lives in
Tampa, although the two have rarely spo-
ken since Eugene and Moody's mother,
Young Sun, separated when Moody was
6 years old.
Moody said that
ity to his father had
nothing to do with
his choice, and that
UF met a list of ten
M brought with him.
Moody "The list of what
I wanted the school to have, Florida
knocked all of those down," he said
"I checked off all the categories."
With his decision behind him, Moody
said he is eager to get back to the game
"I'm just excited to play some foot-
ball," he said. "All the traditions are
great,but putting the pads on again, even
just to practice, I'm excited.
"I feel weak now because of this
whole transfer situation, so I'm just ready
to play some ball."
OUT LOUD, from page 26
not meet on the field barring a national
championship clash or at least a major bowl
game, they are going to be competing for
high-profile recruits and more importantly,
Remember who almost kept UF out of
the national title game last year? USC had to
implode against UCLA or else it would have
been the one-loss Trojans, not the one-loss
Gators basking in the desert glory.
It's not like the Trojans have a policy of
letting potential transfers go wherever they
.want. Numerous sources have reported
that USC will not grant a release to Jamere
Holland, who is also transferring from USC,
should he choose to go to another Pac-10
school. With Moody, the issue was moot
because he wasn't considering other Pac-
10 schools, but I can only assume the same
stipulation would have been in order.
What effect would Moody or Holland
have on USC if they transferred to another
Pac-10 school? USC would defeat Oregon
50-28 instead of 50-17?
Ask Meyer and Pete Carroll what the key
to success in college football is, and I guaran-
tee you'll get the same answer: recruiting.
The two schools may be thousands of
miles apart geographically, but they often
meet up along the recruiting trail. Here are
just a few of the names UF and USC have
competed for in the past two years: Percy
Harvin, Tim Tebow, Stafon Johnson, Vidal
Hazelton, James Wilson, Deonte Thompson.
This list of players is enough to make
recruiting junkies salivate. Obviously these
guys were looking at other schools as well,
but the point is that UF and USC often com-
pete for the same players.
The last two years, USC and UF have sat
atop the recruiting rankings, with everyone
else a distant third.
In terms of the long run, that isn't likely to '
change anytime soon.
While Meyer's last two classes have sur-
passed Carroll's in terms of quantity, USC
has, by popular opinion, brought in better
But take Moody out of USC's 2006 class
and add him to UF's, and things begin to get
just a tiny bit hazier.
The Trojans have to remember that only
one team can win a national title in a given
season. If you are going to be a national title
contender, why give another contender the
ability to improve itself?
If Moody is as good as people think, he
could turn out to be the missing piece that.
takes Meyer's offense to a scary level.
If that happens, USC might wish Moody
had just transferred to a Pac-10 school.
