* A GRAD STUDENT IS
PETITIONING FOR THEM.

By KORI FREDERICK
Alligator Writer

Some students prefer to dry
their laundry on a clothesline
to protect against the wear and
tear of an electric dryer.
But, like anyone else who
lives on UF's campus, Ricardo
Brown-Salazar is unable to use
a clothesline to dry his clothes.
According to UF housing
regulations, drying clothes on
clotheslines, fences, breeze-
ways or on adjacent apartment
building areas is not permitted.
Brown-Salazar, a graduate stu-
dent who lives in Tanglewood
Village, believes the regulation
-contradicts the university's at-
tempts to be more environmen-
tally friendly.


Students, are not allowed to
erect clotheslines or use solar
power to dry clothing outside
of their own living areas.
"This policy is in place for
a couple of reasons," said Rob
Holland, graduate and family
housing administrative coor-
dinator.
"The primary concern is
safety. There's just so many
different. places that someone
could set up a clothesline, and
given the sheer volume of
people living here, some with
children, it's better.just to ban
them outright," Holland said.
Holland also said-the uni-
versity is concerned that if ev-
ery student wanted to put up a
clothesline, the campus would
quickly become cluttered with
student laundry.

John Kerry coming to UF


By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

After canceling his visit
to UF last spring, Sen. John
Kerry will speak at UF at the
University Auditorium on
Sept. 17.
Steven Blank, chairman
of Accent, UF's speakers
bureau, said Kerry would
speak for free because acting
senators cannot be paid for
speeches. -
Kerry, -a Democrat, is
the junior senator from
Massachusetts.
Free tickets will be avail-
able Monday at the Phillips
Center for the Performing
Arts and the University Box
Office on a first-come, first-
serve basis, Blank said.


Any unclaimed tickets will
be available the day of the
speech.
Blank said tickets from the
canceled spring speech are
no longer

He said
he expects
the audi-
torium to
be filled
to capac-
Kerry ity, which
is about 900
people.
Blank said Kerry would
probably speak about nation-
al security, his views on the
war in Iraq and government
policies.
After his speech, Kerry
will take questions from the
audience.


Kerry has served as a
Massachusetts senator for 22
years.
He ran in the 2004
presidential election on the
Democratic ticket against
President George W. Bush.
"We're definitely open
to having some prominent
Republicans speak as well,
but there's no one specific on
our radar," Blank said.
He said he wasn't worried
that Accent, which is billed
as the largest student-run
speaker's bureau in the na-
tion, would appear biased.
Most people know the or-
ganization has a long history
of nonpartisanship, he said.
In the past, Accent has
brought well-known po-

City moves homeless


By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

Residents of Tent City, a home-
less encampment near South
Main Street, will begin relocating
Wednesday.
St. Francis House is one of the
shelters that will take people in
from Tent City.
Kent Vann, executive director,
said they are prepared for small
groups.
Vann said the city has set aside
about $62,000 for the efforts of The
Salvation Army and St. Francis
House. This includes funding for
the increased amount of space, food
and utilities used.
"It's hard to say what to an-
ticipate. It's really no different than
what we deal with every day," he
said.


Vann said he doesn't expect
many problems.
"The biggest problem will be for
us to find affordable housing," he
said. "There's not an abundance of
affordable housing at all."
It's going to take cooperation
between agencies to make it suc-
cessful for the
Around people taking
Gainesville advantage of all
the provided ser-
vices, he said.
So far, about 12 to 15 shelter
beds are available for residents in
Tent City.
City spokesman Bob Woods said
once bed space is filled, the reloca-
tion process will stop until more
beds are available.

Breakdown


of state funds

By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

Five-million dollars in state funds given to
UF this summer will not only be used to finance
the salaries of the 15 new faculty members and
eight new advisers, but for upkeep at UF as
well.
UF Provost Janie Fouke said because only $2
million are recurring state funds, they are the
only kind that could be
UF used for salaries.
Administration The new faculty
members will fill po-
sitions for high-demand courses, including
chemistry, physiology and English.
Fouke said the other $3 million could be
used for several purchases, such as start-up
payments for the hires, classroom and labora-
tory renovations, new desks, new equipment or
any other one-time expenses.
"It will be used to enhance undergraduate
education," she said.
UF will receive more money to hire 200 more
faculty and 100 more advisers once the Tuition
Differential Program kicks in next fall. The
program will allow UF to raise tuition up to 40
percent over several years.

Bars criticized for underage drinkers


By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

It was no happy hour for several
Gainesville bars Wednesday.
At a meeting of the Community
Alcohol Coalition, a group created
by UF President Bernie Machen to
discourage binge drinking, the 10 bars
with the most underage-drinking vio-
lations were criticized.
Gainesville Police Department offi-
cials also announced they received an
$18,000 grant to help enforce underage
drinking deterrents, said Ron Wayne,
a UF spokesman.
The top offender was The Venue,
with 97 violations in the 2005-2006
school year and nine in the past six
months. Rue Bar came in second with
95 violations in 2005-2006 and 93 in
the past six months, said UF Dean of
Students Gene Zdziarski.
Eight Seconds had the lowest num-
ber, with 10 violations in 2005-2006
and none during the past six months.
GPD officers said they will continue
to crack down on underage drinking.
"We have no mercy," said GPD
Capt. Ed Book.
Despite the violations, cases of
alcohol misuse have decreased from
618 in the 2005-2006 school year to


477 during 2006-2007. DUI cases de-
creased from 74 to 58.
Officials said they are working
with the Florida Legislature to pass an
initiative that would require underage
DUI recipients to spend six hours in
the Shands at UP Trauma Center to see
consequences of drunken driving.
A moving information station will
-drive around downtown Gainesville
on Friday and Saturday nights to warn
about dangerous alcohol behaviors.
Signs on buses will continue to
address the dangers of alcohol abuse.
Signs boast messages like "Passing
out is humiliating" or "He slipped
something into my drink, and the next
thing I knew he was on top of me, and


I couldn't get him to stop."
On football game days, officials
from Florida's Division of Alcohol
Beverages and Tobacco, which gives
alcohol licenses, will work with
"underage operatives" to catch res-
taurants and bars serving alcohol to
people under 21.
Nick Farah, a 20-year-old computer
science junior, said, "I'm all for it,"
referring to underage drinking. "Some
of my best friends are underage alco-
holics."
Farah said college is .the time to be
irresponsible.
"We repair those mistakes for
the rest of our lives," he said with a
laugh.

Gardens available


By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Local residents can sign up
Saturday for a plot of land to
grow their own organic plants
and vegetables.
The fall sign-up for UF
Organic Gardens Cooperative
is scheduled to begin at 8
a.m. and last until 11 a.m.
According to the UF Office
of Sustainability Web site,
participants are expected to
practice organic gardening
methods.
"Gardening is great for ex-
ercise and stress relief. It's so
good for mental health," said
Julie Garrett, the garden's
secretary.
Garrett has been, renting
a plot there since February.
She grew more than 350 to-
matoes.
The gardens are located on
SW 23rd Terrace, a quarter-


mile south of Archer Road.
The cost for renting a plot,
which is 12 feet by 25 feet, is
$10 for six months with a $5
deposit.
No background in garden-
ing is required. Renters are
also not required to be UF
students or faculty.
"Gardening is great
for exercise and stress
relief. It's so good for
mental health."
Julie Garrett
garden secretary

While members can use
seeds, tools and water for
free, they are expected to vol-
unteer two hours a month to
" help clean the cooperative's
common areas.
"You don't just rent a gar-
den plot; you join a commu-
nity," Garrett said.


Sustainability experts to speak


By AMELIA BECK
Alligator Writer
UF will host two experts on environmentally
friendly business strategies for The Business Case
for Sustainability and UF Sustainability Showcase on
Monday and Tuesday.
L. Hunter Lovins and Bob Willard will address
the ways in which businesses can benefit from
eco-friendly practices. Doors will open for the first
speech at 6 p.m., and speeches will begin at 7 p.m. in
the Reitz Union Ballroom on Monday. As part of the
showcase, nearly 30 student groups are registered to
set up tables at the Reitz Union before and after the
presentation.
"Hunter and Bob are probably in the top 10 in the
world on demonstrating the business case for sustain-
ability," said Tim Center, director of the Council for
Sustainable Florida. "The opportunity to have these
folks available in a manner where they can answer
questions from the audience will be instrumental in
showing how businesses can implement sustainable
practices."
Lovins is the president of Natural Capitalism
Solutions, a nonprofit organization working to make


global society more environmentally friendly.
A leading expert on the business value of corpo-
rate sustainability strategies, Willard is the author
of "The Sustainability Advantage: Seven Business
Case Benefits of a Triple Bottom Line" and "The Next
Sustainability Wave: Building Boardroom Buy-in."
He has given presentations to corporations, govern-
ments, academics and national government organi-
zations.
The Business Case for Sustainability is based on
the idea thatbusinesses can profit in the
Local long run from eco-friendly endeavors,
News said Ted Astleford, an assistant director
in the Center for Entrepreneurship and
Innovation .in the Warrington College of Business
Administration.
Astleford said the showcase could give students
knowledge of environmentally friendly techniques
that will help them to be more marketable in the
professional world.
"In the upcoming years, nothing is going to be
more pressing and in-demand than people who are
knowledgeable about turning companies 'green,'
about renewable energies and about defending the
climate," he said.

SG parties play name game


* NO PARTIES HAVE CANDI-
DATES OR PLATFORMS YET.

By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Alligator Writer
dculclasure@alligator.org

It's all in a name when it comes
to political parties competing in
this fall's Student Government
election.
SG's Elections Commission
received five complaints about
election violations Thursday,
though no political parties have
candidates or platforms yet. Four
complaints involved the use of the
Gator, Swamp and Impact party
names. One complaint prompted
the commission to hold an emer-
gency meeting Thursday evening.
Party registration had ended
Thursday at noon.
William Foster, president of the
Greek Party, told the commission
that the Gator Party name sounds
too similar to UF's Gators, which
he said suggests that the party is


sanctioned by UF.
Commissioners ruled against
Foster, allowing the party to keep
its name.
The remaining name contro-
versy revolved around students
who registered party names from
past elections, such as Impact
and Swamp, despite having no
previous involvement with those
parties.
According to election rules,
party officials
Student who used the
Government name in the
election be-
fore the current one have the first
chance to register that name again.
An additional complaint was filed
about three hours after the meet-
ing and will be resolved in another
emergency session at 8 a.m. today,
said Sarah Krantz, SG supervisor
of elections.
To avoid confusion, the naming
problems must be resolved before
candidate qualification begins at 9
a.m. today, she added.
Keith Hardwick, president of


the Swamp Party in the spring,
filed the coniplaint against the cur-
rent Swamp Party headed by Sam
Miorelli.
Hardwick said he initially
withdrew his complaint after offi-
cials stripped Miorelli of the party
name.
He filed another complaint
after Miorelli renamed his party
"The Party Formerly Known as
Swamp."
Hardwick said he hasn't de-
cided whether his party will com-
pete in the election, adding that
students could be confused by the
party names.
Former Impact Party Treasurer
Ben Grove also filed a complaint
against the current Impact Party,
saying he had rights to the name.
Grove said he withdrew his com-
plaint.
The fifth complaint was filed
by Miorelli against the Gator Party
but was unrelated to party names.
In the complaint, Miorelli accused
the Gator Party of illegally starting
its campaign early.

6, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7,2007


Editorial
We're mad. We have too much homework and too little
time to sleep. Too few beers and too little money. Not enough
clothing and no laundry money. We're pissed, and we're not
afraid to say it.
This week, the Department of Darts & Laurels might as
well be a crotchety old man you know, that bald 80-year-
old covered in liver spots who yells at those damn kids to
get off his lawn. So stay out of our way today as we vent our
frustrations in this week's furious-and-fuming edition of...



Darts &.attre s
First up, we hurl an empty-wallets-make-us-angry DART
at the bars that raise their prices on game days. Seven dollars
for a pitcher of Natural Light? You've got to be kidding us.
Only filthy-rich alumni can afford that. And if they're filthy
rich, why the hell are they buying Natty Light? Maybe they're
just trying to relive their days as college students but no
one needs to stoop to that level. Please, bars,'keep the cheap
beer cheap.
Not just bars are guilty of game-day price gouging. We
shoot a we-spent-all-of-our-money-on-Natty-Light-so-how-
do-we-get-home-now DART to Gainesville-area cab com-
panies, which charge higher rates on game days from three
hours before until three hours after the game. Instead of charg-
ing based on how far you're driven, most of the companies
charge flat rates, whether you're going just around the block
or halfway across town. Regional Transit System buses run
infrequently to the campus area on game days if at all so
many drunken students need cabs to get them home safely.
And it's not like the cab drivers get much out of this they
don't get paid overtime. All their money comes from tips.
So the greedy companies pocket all the extra money they're
charging riders, while those doing the legwork get the short
end of the stick.
This next thing we're not really mad about. We're mostly
just confused. So here's a what-the-hell-is-going-on DART
for Student Government. The new election season is barely
underway and already the mud is being slung. The Gator,
Swamp and Impact parties all had complaints lodged against
them. And another registered party, Greek, is probably just
here to mislead everyone. Why can't we all just get along? -
Don't get us wrong no party should ever run unop-
posed, and no party should be allowed to break the rules. But
will any of this petty bickering going on right now accomplish
anything? Probably not.
What else really irks us? The fact that companies have to
put their names on everything. So here's a can-you-hear-our-
outrage-now DART for Gator Growl for attaching its new
sponsor's name to the show's official title. No longer can we
call it "Gator Growl 2007: Nation of Champions." Now that
Verizon Wireless has given the show $112,500, we've got to
tack "presented by Verizon Wireless" on the name. Maybe
we're bitter, but all this corporate hoopla makes us want' to
growl.
What happened to the good ol' days when having your
name in the program and a few ads was enough? Are the in-
dustry wars so fierce that if a company's name isn't constantly
shoved in our faces, it'll immediately lose market power and
flounder into financial despair? Something tells us that's not
the case.
Finally, we're mad because of more pointless UF rules.
We chuck a don't-call-it-safety-if-it's-really-an-aesthetic-issue
DART at the UF Housing Department for its ban on clothes-
lines on campus. While it insists that having clotheslines
around campus could be a safety issue, we don't see it. Are
volleyball and tennis nets a safety issue, too? And candles just
don't compare to clotheslines, contrary to what the depart-
ment may say.
We can understand why students can't drape their clothes
all over campus, but one or two clotheslines set up outside
dorms and family housings' laundry rooms wouldn't be too
intrusive. It would help out the environment, make our clothes
last longer and we'd have more money to spend on drinks
on game days. Now that's something we can smile about.

Swamp assigns seats for a reason
As a lifelong Gators fan and UF student,
I did not have much fun at last week's
football game versus Western Kentucky-
University. My girlfriend and I had good
seats -- about 25 rows up close to the ac-
tion with a good view. When it was time for
kickoff, everyone stood up, and a fun time
was to be had by all, right?
Not so much. Before and during the
game, people were on their cell phones,
signaling to their friends to leave their as-
signed seats from higher sections to come
down to the lower section. About five
minutes into the game, my girlfriend and I
were a row below our assigned seats, about
five seats to the left and standing sideways
with no room to maneuver not even to
do the Gators chomp.
When the rightful owners of those seats
arrived a few minutes late, they tried to
squeeze into the already-cramped spaces.
We tried to get back to our original seats,
but they had been taken. It took a nice mem-
ber of the Gainesville Police Department to
make enough room for us to actually see
the game; even then it was very cramped.
Halftime arrived, and we expected some
people to leave, giving us more breathing
room. Few did and more people were
coming down to our section. Fed up, we
left for the O'Connell Center.
Gators fans, fellow students: Please, you
have assigned seats. You can find them on
your tickets.

Not all students back tuition increase
It was interesting to read the Wednesday
Alligator's pro-tuition-increase editorial. I
am sure I am not the only one who found
it bizarre.
The editorial demanded that UF wants
an increase in tuition. Who exactly is "UF,"
anyway?
It is obviously not the students, the
majority of whom do not want to pay any
more money to the school than they or
their parents already do.
Some students support an increase,
but only if that money is guaranteed to be
directed toward need-based grants or new
faculty hires.
The editorial said 12 student govern-
ment leaders from Florida's public uni-
versities went to Tallahassee to talk with
Gov. Charlie Crist, and "about half of the
leaders said they would support a tuition
increase if it went toward reducing class
size or providing need-based scholar-
ships." The editorial also stated Crist did
not listen to the students because in May
he vetoed a 5-percent tuition increase.
Since when does "about half" consti-
tute a majority?
There were 12 student leaders, so
"about half" can, at most, be five people
an obvious minority.
So maybe Crist was listening to the.
majority. And isn't that what democracy
is all about?

Donations, investments should be public
Thanks for being so one-sided about
the protest. Maybe the Alligator should do
its homework before reacting so quickly as
well.
First of all, SDS didn't ask where stu-
dents' tuition money goes we know
quite well how to find that information
online. What we were asking was where all
the money handled by the UF Investment
Corporation goes.
We're also well aware of the fact that the
UFICO and the UF Foundation are 501.3(c)
organizations (I assume you know what that
means) and thus aren't obliged to release
spending records. But since the donations
go to students, we should at least know how
that money is being spent.
As far as protesting goes, don't think
we haven't tried other methods. We have
made phone calls and sent letter after letter
to Machen and the Alligator. But it seems
like the only way we can get the Alligator to
write about us is to make theatrical asses out
of ourselves.
So thanks a lot for putting in the time to
understand what we were trying to accom-
plish for us and you. We'll try to keep quiet
from now on and leave the protesting to our
ancestors.

Transparency protest achieved its goals
An editorial headline told us
Wednesday's demonstration for transpar-


ency was pointless and that it "didn't ac-
complish much." As a member of Students
for a Democratic Society and an organizer
of the protest, I'd like to point out that we
actually accomplished every one of our ob-
jectives for the day.
We kicked off our campaign in a vis-
ible and energetic way. We presented our
demands to UF President Bernie Machen's
associates did anyone really think the
president would be there to greet us at the
steps of Tigert Hall? Not really.
We got extensive local media cover-
age. We networked with other students
searching for a meaningful way to work for
change at UF. Perhaps most importantly,
we did all of this a week before the next UF
Board of Trustees meeting, where this issue
will be discussed.
With any luck, we added urgency to
an issue that has been on the board's back
burner for years now.
Also, the editorial pointed out that the
UF Foundation is a private organization
created to "support the university," but it
failed to consider whether it deserves to
be considered as separate from the uni-
versity and thus exempt from Florida's
Government-in-the-Sunshine Law.
SDS does not think UF should get off so
on such a technicality. We believe all opera-
tions of a public institution, including UF's
endowment investments, should be open
for public review.

High cab prices discourage taxi use on game days


By KRISTINA PEIN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Mike Bentley wanted to take a
cab to the first Gators football game
of the season so a DUI arrest would
not ruin his night.
But when the UF graduate stu-
dent learned that a ride with City
Cab. would cost $20, he changed
his mind. Bentley decided to take
his chances driving after drinking
alcohol rather than pay the high cab
fares on game days.
"It was going to be cheaper for
me to drive.to the game and find a


spot rather than wait 30 minutes for
the cab to get there," said Bentley,
who drove from his apartment to
the stadium.
The drive to the stadium from his
home at Camelot Apartments, at the
comer of Southwest 34th-Street and
Southwest Second Avenue, is under
two miles.
City Cab's fares are not usually
so high. On any given day, the same
ride would only cost $8 or $9.
"If the town's goal is to help keep
people safe, then the fares need to
be controlled," Bentley said. "But I
suppose safety doesn't make much


money."
Cab companies can charge a flat
rate on game days as long as the fare
is posted by the cab, according to the
Gainesville Code of Ordinances.
A seasonal sale, promotional or
sidewalk sale, parade, festival or
home football game are all consid-
ered special events, according to the
City of Gainesville's Web site. .
Bestway Cab Co. also raises fares.
The two-mile ride. Bentley needed
would have cost at least $8 on an
average day. The same ride would
have cost a flat rate of $15 for two
people three hours before and three

hous.after a game.
Students should save money to
pay for cabs on game day to avoid
the temptation to drink and drive,


said Jeff Holcomb, spokesman' for
the University Police Department.
"What's the cost of a life if you
drive drunk?" he said. "It's a much
more costly alternative than a cab
fare."
Jared Sheffield, a UF alumnus
who came from out of town, said
he decided to stay the night at his
fraternity house so he could walk to
and from the game.
"When it comes down to it, many
students convince themselves that
they can make the two-mile drive
and save themselves some cash,"
Sheffield said.


New students find ways to get involved at Gatorfest


* THE EVENT ATTRACTED
ABOUT 2,000 STUDENTS.

By ANGELA PETERSEN

New and old faces trailed into
the O'Connell Center on Thursday
night to get a taste of The Gator
Nation for Gatorfest.
Gatorfest, a part of the Division
of Student Affairs' Weeks of
Welcome program, introduced new

About 2,000 students attended
the event.
The pep rally featured per-

team and UF cheerleaders.
Several UF administrators,
Student Government officials and
UF coaches made appearances and
-brief speeches.
Student Body Vice President
Vanessa Goodwin and Student

effort to have the look of its grounds and facilities give
off a certain aura," he said. "It gives off a different look
than what we're going for if there are clotheslines every-
where."
Brown-Salazar wants UF to change the policy. He said
new energy-saving light bulbs had been installed in all
the village housing, but residents were being forced to
use energy-inefficient electric dryers.
Holland contended safety factors were more pressing
than conserving energy.
"We aren't against saving energy," he said. "But if
someone wants to save energy by using candles, obvi-
ously they can't; there's a safety element there. It's the
same for the clotheslines."
Brown-Salazar has started a petition for his commu-
nity, and he said he plans to submit it in less than one
month to UF's housing officials.
He cited examples from Florida statutes that promote
the use of solar drying. Those statutes don't apply to con-
dominiums or apartment complexes though.
"The university is not keeping the spirit of that law
though," he said.
Brown-Salazar got the go-ahead from the mayor of,
his village to petition UF housing to set up clotheslines.
Not every unit needs a clothesline, but there should be a
designated area on campus where students can line-dry
their clothing, he said.
Holland said that students can use drying racks in
their own apartments to dry their clothes. Additionally,
he said that officials are willing to take suggestions.
"We always entertain suggestions and ideas from
the students," he said. "Would we rule out looking at it
again? If the situation was right, we would consider it.
But since it is part of the contract, we aren't going to be
quick to remove it either."

said:
This week, the Gainesville Police
Department started posting trespass
notices to warn homeless people of the
pending relocation. Woods said start-
ing Wednesday, official trespass notices
and emergency shelter vouchers will
be passed out by GPD.
The voucher will enable them to ob-
tain bed space at either The Salvation
Army or St. Francis House. If a person
has serious health issues, other arrange-
ments will be made, Woods said.
Each individual will have five days
to use the voucher.
In August, City Commission de-
cided, in a 5-to-1 vote, that all homeless
people living on the public property of
Tent City would have to be relocated.
Woods said, "Jf private-property
owners say that anyone living on their
property is trespassing, they can re-
quest assistance from the GPD."

For tomorrow's matchup between
UF and Troy, the alligatorSports Brand
Picks Column has reached into its col-
lective bedside table for some perspec-
tive on the Troy Trojans.
We called up Jim Daniels, the Vice
President of Marketing for Trojan, the
makers of "America's #1 Condom."
The company began in the 1920s,
and while the origin of the name is
uncertain, some stories point to the
protective nature of the city of Troy and
its soldiers.
Not to be premature, but we're a
bunch of straight-shooters-Saturday's.
game shouldn't be dose, and Troy
could probably learn a thing or two
from its prophylactic brethren.
Sorry, if that was a low blow (on that
note, Trojan makes flavored condoms,
too). So what are the benefits of Trojan
condoms?
"The obvious benefits are to protect
against unexpected pregnancies and
the spread of STDs," Daniels said.
"With correct use and compliance, they
are 98 to 99 percent effective."
With those numbers, who wouldn't
want condoms on the field?
The Gators registered four sacks
against Western Kentucky, and Troy
will need some reliable protection to
prevent the same from happening.
Since the football Trojans have al-
ready allowed a sack this season, the
pieces of latex seem to offer more pro-
tection than the Troy offensive line.
"I don't think Troy is 98 or 99 percent
effective, so yes, we would be more pro-
tective," Daniels said.
Until recently, the company was
represented by the "Trojan Man," who
would come to the rescue of young
couples by offering condoms.
Trojan Man was pretty jacked, so it
made us wonder what kind of football
player he would make.
"He would probably be a coach,"
Daniels said.

QB Haugabook puts Trojans on map

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

When Tony Franklin took over as the offensive coor- B
dinator at Troy after the 2005 season; he quickly realized
one big problem.
He didn't have a quarterback.
"Before I ever took the job, (Troy head coach Larry
Blakeney) sent me film," said Franklin, a former offensive
coordinator- at Kentucky. "I looked at the quarterbacks
and didn't feel like there was anybody here that could
play and do what I wanted to do."
So Franklin did what any other enterprising coordina- -
tor would do. He scanned recruiting Web sites, checking
out Scout, Rivals and Sunshine Preps.
"That's where I saw him," Franklin said.
"Fundamentally, he was doing the things I believe in. He
kept the ball high, he had hot feet and he did real well in
the pocket. Immediately, I knew he was the guy. Because
of those three things, he was somebody I wanted to find
more about."
The guy was Omar Haugabook, a 6-foot-2, 220-pound
quarterback out of Dodge City (Kan.) Community
College.
"Immediately, I knew he was the guy. ,
Because of those three things, he was
somebody I wanted to find more about."
To Tony Franklin
Troy offensive coordinator .,


The day Franklin passed his NCAA recruiting test,
he got Haugabook on the phone. Franklin convinced
Haugabook to de-commit from Marshall by explaining
how cold it was in West Virginia and how much closer
Troy was to his home of Belle Glade.
Haugabook took the bait and packed for Troy.
In his first season, Haugabook earned Sun Belt Player
of the Year honors and led the Trojans to a win in the New
Orleans Bowl.
Haugabook presented problems for defenses with his
ability to pass (2,401 yards and 21 touchdowns) and his
running prowess (313 yards and five scores). He's willing

Gators to travel to Utah, focus on fundamentals


Small arena to prepare UF for SEC venues


By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Writer

Even though the UF volleyBall
team is 6-0, Coach Mary Wise will
tell you the Gators are far from
perfect.
"This team is a long ways away
from playing its best volleyball,"
she said.
With only one match to go be-
fore the Southeastern Conference
schedule begins -next week, the
Gators will take all the time they
can get to refine their play.
UF travels to Salt Lake City to
take on Utah (2-3) Sunday at 6 p.m.
Eastern time.
Wise talked about getting better
at blocking earlier in the season,
and the Gators have visibly im-
proved in that area.
After blocking in the single dig-
its in their first four matches, the
Gators had 10 blocks against Santa
Clara on Saturday afternoon and a
season-high 16 against Florida State


on Wednesday night.
But for senior outside hit-
ter Marcie Hampton, that's not
enough. .
"There's a lot we have to get bet-
ter on," she said. "We have a ton to
work on blocking, serving and
just the basics. We have to get better
in order to beat [SEC] teams."
Senior setter Angie McGinnis
has noticed a step-up in play, but
said there is plenty of room to get
better in setting, passing and block-
mg.
"It's all coming around," she
said, "but, I definitely think that
in order to beat the top teams in
the SEC, and then eventually the
NCAA Tournament, we have to
improve those three areas."
The Gators certainly don't
want to come out flat like they did
against FSU, losing the first game
before taking the final three.
"If we ever come out like that
again, we will all be benched,"
senior middle blocker Kisya


Killingsworth said.
Though the Utes have a losing
record,-they received votes in the
most recent American Volleyball
Coaches Association Poll and are
coming off a win against Purdue, a
team that was No. 17 in the nation
at the time.
Instead of playing in a large
basketball arena like the Gators do,
Utah plays its matches in a second-
ary arena. Wise thinks this experi-
ence in Utah will help when SEC
play begins.
"They play in a smaller auxiliary
gym," she said. "And I think that's
good for our team before we go
into places like Alabama and some
of the SEC schools that play in a
smaller facility, where the crowd's
right on top of you."
UF and Utah met last season
with UF taking the win 3-1 at home.
McGinnis recorded UF's second
career triple-double in that match
with 56 assists, 11 digs and 10 kills.
Hampton leads the team in


kills with 72, outside hitter Amber
McCray is second with 48 and
Killingsworth is third with 37.
"We all play with a love for
the game and we're all very com-
petitive," Hampton said. "As a
group, [the seniors] look to set an
example."
McGinnis is also up there in
kills, with 32 so
far. She is tal-
elying 1.78 kills
per game, more
than half a kill
per game higher
than her career
average before
McGinnis this season.
Her kills often
come on sneaky downward slaps
over the net when the opponent
thinks she is going to set the ball to
a hitter instead.
"The team needs that in order
to open up our offense," McGinnis
said. "In order for the block on the
other side to be confused, they have
to be worrying about the setter kill
as well as the hitter. I kind of have
to do that in order to open up our


offense."
These kills come as a surprise
both to the opponent and her
Gators teammates, resulting in
louder-than-usual cheers in the
post-point huddle.
"I think sometimes I fake people
out," McGinnis said. "That's why
they get so excited, because they
didn't know it was coming."

JAECKEL TO REDSHIRT: Freshman
outside hitter Kristy Jaeckel will
redshirt the 2007 season.
Jaeckel, who is not yet 18
years old, came into UF as a
PrepVolleyball.com All-American
and played on the 2007 U.S. Junior
National A2 Team.
-She was not scheduled to be a
freshman this year and instead was
going to wait until the 2008 season
to enroll.
But her mother, Sharon, said she
is very competitive and wanted
to train early to be ready for .2008
without losing her first year.
"She wanted to get stronger, and
she didn't want to bum a year of
eligibility," Sharon said.

to do either to win games.
"I can throw it, and I can run,"
Haugabook said. "It all depends on how
the games go."
He put Troy on the college football
map last season by scaring the daylights
out of Seminole nation in week two.
The Trojans led 17-10 in the fourth
quarter before Drew Weatherford


PICKS, from page 17


brought Florida State back for a 24-17
escape. Haugabook attempted a season-
high 46 passes in the game, but his inter-
ceptions abruptly ended
Troy's final two drives.
"That was my first
big Division-I game,"
FootballW Haugabook said. "I made
some mistakes, but I also
did some good things. I learned from
that game."
Haugabook had similar problems in

told us about the brand is that it is like a trusted mentor. He's
approachable, tells it like it is and he's always there to help you
out. Obviously the coach doesn't get into the game, but he can
help the players have success."
According to a study done by Trojan last year, the Gators
would benefit from a visit by the Trojan man; UF ranked 49th
out of 100 schools in Trojan's Sexual Health Report Card survey
and earned an "F" in condom availability.
With a horde of Trojans due in town Saturday, that grade
should improve some in the 2007 rankings.
Over the years, Trojan has made an effort to increase plea-
sure for its users with things like vibrating rings and corkscrew
designs, so what would bring more enjoyment to Gators fans: a
win or one of the company's products?
"That's a good question," Daniels said.
"Let's just hope that the students on the Florida campus
have a great time, and if they choose to celebrate by being
sexually active, they make sure they have a Trojan condom for
protection."
With that said, Daniels isn't ready to award UF a win just
yet; he picked the Gators to win but expects a tough fight.
"Troy is going to put up some very good defense, given their
namesake, and they will be respected," he said.
With that, on to the picks!
Leading off with an 8-2 record is Bryan "Let me make sure
this is okay with my girlfriend" Jones, who has survived for
weeks off of crumbs he found in his unkempt mustache.


to Arkansas.
He hopes to take those experiences
as well as lessons learned in losses to
Georgia Tech and Nebraska last season
into The Swamp this week.
The Gators will be waiting.
"He has a different throwing motion,
but he's an extremely accurate passer,"
UF coach Urban Meyer said. "I know he
struggled a little bit against Arkansas, but
that was more in the second half. Early in
that game he did a great job. That was a
heck of a job in the first half."


In the two-spot, also at 8-2, is Brian "Sneakers only get better
with age" Steele, who will miss the entire opening weekend of
the NFL season when he realizes MTV is running a marathon
of America's Next Top Model.
Hitting third with a 6-4 mark is Jenna "Ooh, pick the team
with the cutest mascot to win the Super Bowl" Marina, whose
hair in her column picture looks eerily like Joakim Noah's locks
minus his token hair tie. Now if only we could get her to stop
wearing those billowy African gowns around the office she's
scaring away the new staff.
Batting cleanup at 6-4 is Mike "I like to pick up the occa-
sional running back on the side of the road" McCall, whose
top three searches on Google are "david garrard topless," "ecu
pep band song lyrics" and "david garrard shirtless." He'll love
every minute of those muscles if he has enough hand lotion to
last him through the night.
Bringing up the rear, also at 6-4, is Nick "I'll cover your high
school soccer game for free" Zaccardi, who has had a rough
couple of days, as his beloved Illinois football team lost last
week and Lon Kruger has yet to respond to his message on
eHarmony.

NICK-EL, from page 17

Smith would go on to play another season, at
Utah, and he is now entering his third year with
the San Francisco 49ers.
But what about the road games?
OK, Meyer lost at Alabama, at LSU and at
South Carolina in his first year.
He lost at Auburn in 2006.
Only a couple of those defeats can be consid-
ered upsets.
If Troy beats the Gators, it would be an embar-
rassment, not an upset.
And when was the last time somebody embar- ;
rassed a Meyer-coached team?
Again, go back to the Utah days.
The 24th-ranked Utes lost by 12 to a three-loss
New Mexico team in 2003, though I don't remem-
ber gasping in horror when seeing that score
come across the ticker.
So Meyer doesn't lose at home, and he doesn't
get embarrassed.
He doesn't overlook teams, either.
The real start of the season comes next week
as Phillip Fulmer brings his Tennessee Vols into
Gainesville, looking for his first win over Meyer.
The same scenario came into play in 2006.
The Gators easily won their opener and faced
a "trap" game before heading to Tennessee.
UF blanked Central Florida 42-0 led by a
27-point second quarter and started packing
for Knoxville at halftime.
In 2005, the Gators romped 41-3 over Louisiana
Tech the week before Tennessee.
The Trojans do have one thing going for them:
gamblers seem to like them.
They opened as 27-point underdogs.
As of Thursday night, that number fell to 26
1/2 as everyone drinking the Appalachian State
Kool-Aid put their money on the Trojans, at least
to cover the spread.
Las Vegas knows something. Watch out.

UF SOCCER

Gators to take on in-state rivals Seminoles, Bulls


By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Writer

Say what you will about Florida State, but
Ashley Harris isn't listening.
When the UF soccer team hosts the
Seminoles this weekend, Harris, a senior
from Royal Palm Beach, will have no prob-
lem looking past the garnet and gold.
"Rival teams? I don't have any," Harris
said. "All my teams are rivals."
Harris, along with the rest of the No. 14
Gators (1-1), will host the No. 9 Seminoles (1-
1) this Sunday at 1:30 p.m. at James G. Pressly
Stadium.
FSU will be the Gators' second top-10 op-
ponent, and they are only two weekends into
the season. The Seminoles, along with last
Sunday's opponent, Notre Dame, made up
one half of last year's final four.
For Harris, a chance to play such a high-
caliber team is what she needs to get moti-


vated.
"I like having competition,": she said.
"That's what I like about the game. It's excit-
ing. It's competing it's what we're here
for. If we didn't want to compete, then why
would we play sports?"
Harris is only one of the eight seniors
on the team who have experienced victory
against their in-state foe.
The Seminoles have defeated the Gators
in the past two contests, and in three of the
last five.
Last year, FSU scored a late first-half goal
that would prove too much for UF, who fell to
the then-ranked No. 2 Seminoles 1-0.
The game, held in Tallahassee, was played
in front of a record crowd of 4,582 at Seminole
Soccer Complex.
This year, the Gators hope to set an at-
tendance record of their own, as they try to
eclipse the 4,745 fans who attended the 1999
matchup between the two teams.

"I expect a typical UF-FSU crowd," Harris
said. "Packed stadium so many people
that they can't all fit in the stands. ... It's a lot
of fun getting fans out there; it pumps us up.
Especially if we're down a goal, we need our
fans there for us."
Even UF coach Becky
Burleigh is getting into the
spirit.
"I'm hoping they're
really rowdy and crazy,"
she said. "That's what we
like."
But before the Gators
Harris kick off Sunday's highly
anticipated game, they will
have to tackle another nearby opponent.
On Friday at 7 p.m., the Gators will take
on South Florida.
The Bulls have only played one game so
far, a double-overtime tie against Mississippi.

Gainesville and only the second meeting be-
tween the programs.
There is some familiarity as the two
squads met last spring for an exhibition game
in Tampa, where the Gators pulled out a 2-0
victory.
Burleigh said her team has no intention of
looking past the Bulls.
"We played them in the spring, and it was
a battle," she said. "They're a real defense-
oriented team, and this is going to be a real
test for us. They want to defend hard, and
we need to take care of our opportunities,
especially in this game because we may not
get too many."
Following last weekend's loss to No. 2
Notre Dame, the Gators remain confident as
they move deeper into the season.
"I don't think it was a make-or-break type
of thing," junior forward Ameera Abdullah
said. "We're going to just keep doing what
we're doing and continue to move forward."

Pounceys linked by brotherly love


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

They sit together, side by side, slightly
leaning forward as their arms rest on their
legs.
They let out small chuckles and their dim-
ples resonate on their schoolboy faces.
Then the questions from reporters con-
tinue: Do you finish each other's sentences?
"We always do it," they say in unison.
Next...
Have you ever switched places in classes?
"We always wanted to but never did," one
says.
Two seconds later...
"We always wanted to but never did," the
other says, copying the prior's words without
realizing it, creating laughter from each other
and those surrounding.
Think you've just developed double vi-
sion?
Nope. It's just a whole lot of Pouncey.
"Not many," they say together on how
many people can tell them apart. "They just
call us Pouncey twins."
Mike and Maurkice better known as
The Pouncey Twins. Better known as two pil-
lars for the future of UF's offensive line. Better
known as the blockers and protectors for Tim
Tebow, Percy Harvin and Kestahn Moore.
And better known as two of the goofiest
300-plus-pound men you will ever meet.
"They're jokesters right there," said senior
offensive lineman Carlton Medder, who is
Maurkice's roommate. "They're always get-
ting you laughing. Always keeping a smile
on your face. There's never a down time with
them."

Hungry Men
The Pounceys have 'developed a reputa-
tion as jokesters, but there's no joke if you
keep them from the buffet line.
"All they do is eat every second," fresh-


man running back and former Lakeland High
teammate Chris Rainey said. "They don't care
what it is."
Wherever the Pounceys wander in search
of their next refueling station, it's not a pretty
sight for waiters and waitresses.
"Some cooks start sweating (when we
walk in)," Mike said. "'Man, we got to cook
another batch of something.'
"Me, my brother, Carl Johnson and Marcus
Gilbert went to Hooters one day and shut it
down. Had everything in there. (The wait-
resses are like) 'Dang, we got a lot to feed.'"
Maurkice gets the same feeling.
"We walk in and they're like, 'There's
going to be a lot more tipping for a lot more
cooking,'" he said.
Then there's the day when their
mother, Lisa Webster, works the hardest
- Thanksgiving.
"It's trouble there," Mike said. "We eat ev-
erything. We have like a fiesta over there."
But they're not just hungry off the field.
They're hungry on it, too.
"For a true freshman, Maurkice is hungry.
He's real hungry," Medder said. "He's always
asking me questions about this play, about
that play, about this one, about that one.
That's always a good sign from a freshman."
The offensive line has recognized the
Pounceys' abilities. UF coach Urban Meyer
even said Maurkice was one of the finest
freshman offensive linemen he has ever seen.
And Maurkice's play has backed up that
statement so far.
In his first game Saturday against Western
Kentucky, Maurkice started in place of the
injured Phil 'Trautwein, who is out indefi-
nitely with a stress fracture in his right foot.
He learned he would take the job just a few
days prior.
But after several late-night study ses-
sions with Medder, including one that
went past midnight, Maurkice was ready
and the offensive line didn't miss a beat.
Meyer almost graded the freshman a cham-

pion, an honor that only goes to a few players
in a given game.
"They like to have fun," senior center and
team captain Drew Miller said. "It's al-ivwa
nice to have guys that like to joke around,
but when it's time to get serious, they know
to buckle down and get serious. That shows a
great deal of maturity.
"Sometimes you feel separated some of
the younger guys from the older guys but
they fit in right away, and they're just good
guys."

something and it's like a broken record.

"Just being at home by ourselves," Mike
said. "We want to be around everybody. When
we're at home in the dorm, we're like, 'Let's go
outside or something.' We can't stand being by
ourselves."
They say the longest time they have ever
spent apart from each other is probably a
"class period," but there are some times wheri
they do want to be alone. Like around girls.
Especially when they switch on them.
"Switching up on girls, we did that a couple
times," Maurkice said. "They might find out
one day like after (this quote goes.in the
paper)."
So, do they like the same girls?'
"If they're pretty," Maurkice said
"We're not picky," Mike said at the same
time.
A few seconds later...
"Maybe we're kind of picky," Mike added
after glancing over at his brother.
As the term "kissing your sister" applies to
a tie in sports, you don't want to be kissing the
same girl as your brother, either.
"We just wanted to stop playing around,"
Maurkice said. "You can hurt a girl's feelings
like that. We didn't want to mess around with
the same girls."
Switching for a girl is one thing, but would
the Pounceys dare pull the switch oA Meyer?
"I don't know," Mike said. "I don't want to
find out (what he'd do)."
However, Meyer said in the spring that he
couldn't tell them apart.
When asked more recently if he could tell
Mike from Maurkice, Meyer nodded.
"One's 55, one's 56. Maurkice is 56."

Family Men
The Pounceys protect more than their quar-
terback.
Rainey lived with the Pounceys for four
r years prior to arriving at UF.
"Without Rainey we still have that team
bond, but we love Rainey," Maurkice said.

Gators take notice of Michigan loss, prepare for Troy


By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
jmarina@alligator.org

After Appalachian State stunned Michigan last week, the
Gators have been taking notes of what not to do Saturday when
they take on Troy in The Swamp.
"Any time a big powerhouse like that goes down to a team
not even in our division, it's a real big surprise," UF center Drew
Miller said. "It just proves that anything can happen in a football
game if you don't prepare right."
Though some may assume that UF's first two games against
Western Kentucky and Troy do not present a challenge for the
Gators, a closer look at the Trojans might prove otherwise. Troy
is the reigning Sun Belt Conference champion and won its first
ltowl game in the progragi's history last season, defeating Rice in


the New Orleans Bowl.
Troy senior Omar Haugabook is a proven quarterback
with some talent around him, including running back Kenny
Cattouse, who was placed on the Doak Walker Award watch list
this season.
It's the same list that features players like Arkansas' Darren
McFadden and Rutgers' Ray Rice, both Heisman contenders.
The Trojans return nearly all of their starters, making it virtu-
ally the same team that nearly upset a top-10 Florida State squad
last September.
While the Gators don't plan on losing to Troy, UF coach Urban
Meyer did say he is concerned that UF might believe it already
has the game in the bag.
"I worry about that with the older guys like Drew Miller or
Carlton Medder, but they are such good kids, and we are going to
be on them so hard that I don't see that being a problem," Meyer


said.
Miller agrees, but said he could see how some teams might
show up and expect to sleepwalk to victory.
"It's easy when you go against teams like that the last few
years and usually blow them out not really getting a scare,"
Miller said. "Teams come in as underdogs, and they'll do all
kinds of things crazy blitzes, different things on offense and
that can confuse you if you don't prepare right."
During last week's 49-3 victory against Western Kentucky,
Miller wasn't completely happy with the way UF won the
game.
"We had a couple drives where I saw the guys kind of go
down to (Western Kentucky's level)," Miller said. "When we
were on the sideline, I would try to regroup them and say, 'This
can't happen. We got to score as much as we can to get the young
guys in, so they can get game experience.'" '0

ISSUE 11 V FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2007 UF prohibits clotheslines Laura nema1 / AiaiIUr UF sophomore Chris Saunders separates his dark clothes from his lights in the laundry room of Beaty Towers West on Thursday afternoon. 0 A GRAD STUDENT IS PETITIONING FOR THEM. By KORI FREDERICK Alligator Writer Some students prefer to dry their laundry on a clothesline to protect against the wear and tear of an electric dryer. But, like anyone else who lives on UF's campus, Ricardo Brown-Salazar is unable to use a clothesline to dry his clothes. According to UF housing regulations, drying clothes on clotheslines, fences, breezeways or on adjacent apartment building areas is not permitted. Brown-Salazar, a graduate student who lives in Tanglewood Village, believes the regulation contradicts the university's attempts to be more environmentally friendly. Students, are not allowed to erect clotheslines or use solar power to dry clothing outside of their own living areas. "This policy is in place for a couple of reasons," said Rob Holland, graduate and family housing administrative coordinator. "The primary concern is safety. There's just so many different. places that someone could set up a clothesline, and given the sheer volume of people living here, some with children, it's better-just to ban them outright," Holland said. Holland also said-the university is concerned that if every student wanted to put up a clothesline, the campus would quickly become cluttered with student laundry.

John Kerry will speak at UF at the University Auditorium on Sept. 17. Steven Blank, chairman of Accent, UF's speakers bureau, said Kerry would speak for free because acting senators cannot be paid for speeches. Kerry, a Democrat, is the junior senator from Massachusetts. Free tickets will be available Monday at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts and the University Box Office on a first-come, firstserve basis, Blank said. Any unclaimed tickets will be available the day of the speech. Blank said tickets from the canceled spring speech are no longer S .valid. .He said he expects the auditorium to 4 be filled to capacKerry ity, which is about 900 people. Blank said Kerry would probably speak about national security, his views on the war in Iraq and government policies. After his speech, Kerry will take questions from the audience. Kerry has served as a Massachusetts senator for 22 years. He ran in the 2004 presidential election on the Democratic ticket against President George W. Bush. "We're definitely open to having some prominent Republicans speak as well, but there's no one specific on our radar," Blank said. He said he wasn't worried that Accent, which is billed as the largest student-run speaker's bureau in the na-tion, would appear biased.

Vann said the city has set aside about $62,000 for the efforts of The Salvation Army and St. Francis House. This includes funding for the increased amount of space, food and utilities used. "It's hard to say what to anticipate. It's really no different than what we deal with every day," he said.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7; 2007 E ALLIGATOR, 3 LOCAL Bars criticized for underage drinkers Breakdown of state fun ds By KIM WILMATH AllIigato r Writer kwilmsth@alligator.org Five-million dollars in state funds given to UF this summer will not only be used to finance the salaries of the 15 new faculty members and eight new advisers, but for upkeep at UF as well. UF Provost Janie Fouke said because only $2 million are recurring state funds, they are the only kind that could be U F used for salaries. AdlinistratiOn The new faculty members will fill positions for high-demand courses, including chemistry, physiology and English. Fouke said the other $3 million could be used for several purchases, such as start-up payments for the hires, classroom and laboratory renovations, new desks, new equipment or any other one-time expenses. "It will be used to enhance undergraduate education," she said. UF will receive more money to hire 200 more faculty and 100 more advisers once the Tuition Differential Program kicks in next fall. The program will allow UF to raise tuition up to 40 percent over several years. 477 during 2006-2007. DUI cases decreased from 74 to 58. Officials said they are working with the Florida Legislature to pass an initiative that would require underage DUI recipients to spend six hours in the Shands at UF Trauma Center to see consequences of drunken driving. A moving information station will -drive around downtown Gainesville on Friday and Saturday nights to warn about dangerous alcohol behaviors. Signs on buses will continue to address the dangers of alcohol abuse. Signs boast messages -like "Passing out is humiliating" or "He slipped something into my drink, and the next thing I knew he was on top of me, and I couldn't get him to stop." On football game days, officials from Florida's Division of Alcohol Beverages and Tobacco, which gives alcohol licenses, will work with "underage operatives" to catch restaurants and bars serving alcohol to people under 21. Nick Farah, a 20-year-old computer science junior, said, "I'm all for it," referring to underage drinking. "Some of my best friends are underage alcoholics." Farah said college is the time to be irresponsible. "We repair those mistakes for the rest of our lives," he said with a laugh. By KIM WILMATH Alligator Writer kwilmath@alligatororg It was no happy hour for several Gainesville bars Wednesday. At a meeting of the Community Alcohol Coalition, a group created by UF President Bernie Machen to discourage binge drinking, the 10 bars with the most underage-drinking violations were criticized. Gainesville Police Department officials also announced they received an $18,000 grant to help enforce underage drinking deterrents, said Ron Wayne, a UF spokesman. The top offender was The Venue, with 97 violations in the 2005-2006 school year and nine in the past six months. Rue Bar came in second with 95 violations in 2005-2006 and 93 in the past six months, said UF Dean of Students Gene Zdziarski. Eight Seconds had the lowest number, with 10 violations in 2005-2006 and none during the past six months. GPD officers said they will continue to crack down on underage drinking. "We have no mercy," said GPD Capt. Ed Book. Despite the violations, cases of alcohol misuse have decreased from 618 in the 2005-2006 school year to scouts who RSVP with their troops will receive a coupon for a free t dog and drink at the game scouts who RSVP will receive reserved seating and a pre-game hello i member of the Gator coaching staff!

4, ALLIGATOR 0 FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7,2007 ON CAMPUS Gardens available By KATIE EMMETS Alligator Contributing Writer Local residents can sign up Saturday for a plot of land to grow their own organic plants and vegetables. The fall sign-up for UF Organic Gardens Cooperative is scheduled to begin at 8 a.m. and last until 11 a.m. According to the UF Office of Sustainability Web site, participants are expected to practice organic gardening methods. "Gardening is great for exercise and stress relief. It's so good for mental health," said Julie Garrett, the garden's secretary. Garrett has beenrenting a plot there since February. She grew more than 350 tomatoes. The gardens are located on SW 23rd Terrace, a quartermile south of Archer Road. The cost for renting a plot, which is 12 feet by 25 feet, is $10 for six months with a $5 deposit. No background in gardening is required. Renters are also not required to be UF students or faculty. "Gardening is great for exercise and stress relief. It's so good for mental health." Julie Garrett garden secretary While members can use seeds, tools and water for free, they are expected to volunteer two hours a month to help clean the cooperative's common areas. "You don't just rent a garden plot; you join a community," Garrett said. Sustainability experts to speak By AMELIA BECK Alligator Writer UF will host two experts on environmentally friendly business strategies for The Business Case for Sustainability and UF Sustainability Showcase on Monday and Tuesday. L. Hunter Lovins and Bob Willard will address the ways in which businesses can benefit from eco-friendly practices. Doors will open for the first speech at 6 p.m., and speeches will begin at 7 p.m. in the Reitz Union Ballroom on Monday. As part of the showcase, nearly 30 student groups are registered to set up tables at the Reitz Union before and after the presentation. "Hunter and Bob are probably in the top 10 in the world on demonstrating the business case for sustainability," said Tim Center, director of the Council for Sustainable Florida. "The opportunity to have these folks available in a manner where they can answer questions from the audience will be instrumental in showing how businesses can implement sustainable practices." Lovins is the president of Natural Capitalism Solutions, a nonprofit organization working to make global society more environmentally friendly. A leading expert on the business value of corporate sustainability strategies, Willard is the author of "The Sustainability Advantage: Seven Business Case Benefits of a Triple Bottom Line" and "The Next Sustainability Wave: Building Boardroom Buy-in." He has given presentations to corporations, governments, academics and national government organizations. The Business Case for Sustainability is based on the idea that businesses can profit in the Local long run from eco-friendly endeavors, News said Ted Astleford, an assistant director in the Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation.in the Warrington College of Business Administration. Astleford said the showcase could give students knowledge of environmentally friendly techniques that will help them to be more marketable in the professional world. "In the upcoming years, nothing is going to be more pressing and in-demand than people who are knowledgeable about turning companies 'green,' about renewable energies and about defending the climate," he said.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2007 E ALLIGATOR, 5 SG parties play name game E NO PARTIES HAVE CANDIDATES OR PLATFORMS YET. By DEVIN CULCLASURE Alligator Writer dculclasure@aiigator.org It's all in a name when it comes to political parties competing in this fall's Student Government election. SG's Elections Commission received five complaints about election violations Thursday, though no political parties have candidates or platforms yet. Four complaints involved the use of the Gator, Swamp and Impact party names. One complaint prompted the commission to hold an emergency meeting Thursday evening. Party registration had ended Thursday at noon. William Foster, president of the Greek Party, told the commission that the Gator Party name sounds too similar to UF's Gators, which he said suggests that the party is iCANCER Vi R 0 1E C Finally! Aprescription ithside effectsyou want. sanctioned by U. Commissioners ruled against Foster, allowing the party to keep its name. The remaining name controversy revolved around students who registered party names from past elections, such as Impact and Swamp, despite having no previous involvement with those parties. According to election rules, party officials Student who used the Government name in the election before the current one have the first chance to register that name again. An additional complaint was filed about three hours after the meeting and will be resolved in another emergency session at 8 a.m. today, said Sarah Krantz, SG supervisor of elections. To avoid confusion, the naming problems must be resolved before candidate qualification begins at 9 a.m. today, she added. Keith Hardwick, president of the Swamp Party in the spring, filed the complaint against the current Swamp Party headed by Sam Miorelli. Hardwick said he initially withdrew his complaint after officials stripped Miorells of the party name. He filed another conplaint after Miorelli renamed his party "The Party Formerly Known as Swamp." Hardwick said he hasn't decided whether his party will compete in the election, adding that students could be confused by the party names. Former Inpact Party Treasurer Ben Grove also filed a complaint against the current Impact Party saying he had rights to the name. Grove said he withdrew his complaint. The fifth complaint was filed by Miorelli against the Gator Party but was unrelated to party names. In the complaint, Miorelli accused the Gator Party of illegally starting its campaign early. aBody Kits eLights Largest showroom .Winches .Lowering Kits and inventory Tonneau Covers i North Central Too Boxes eBedliners Florida *Nerf Bars .Bug Deflectors 2Hidden Hitches .Fuel Tanks &Roll-N-Lock GAINESVILLE, FL Covers *Truck Racks eSpray-in Bedliners (Next to The Clock Restaurant) MON-FRI 8:30-5:30 SAT 8:30-4:00 UF, Tenn. will settle rivalry through blood By LINDSEY ROBINSON Alligator Contributing Writer Before the UF football team squares off against the University of Tennessee team on Sept. 15, UF and UT fans will compete in a battle for blood.

6, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7,2007 Editorial We're mad. We have too much homework and too little time to sleep. Too few beers and too little money. Not enough clothing and no laundry money. We're pissed, and we're not afraid to say it. This week, the Department of Darts & Laurels might as well be a crotchety old man -you know, that bald 80-yearold covered in liver spots who yells at those damn kids to get off his lawn. So stay out of our way today as we vent our frustrations in this week's furious-and-fuming edition of. Darts First up, we hurl an empty-wallets-make-us-angry DART at the bars that raise their prices on game days. Seven dollars for a pitcher of Natural Light? You've got to be kidding us. Only filthy-rich alumni can afford that. And if they're filthy rich, why the hell are they buying Natty Light? Maybe they're just trying to relive their days as college students -but no one needs to stoop to that level. Please, bars, keep the cheap beer cheap. .Not just bars are guilty of game-day price gouging. We shoot a we-spent-all-of-our-money-on-Natty-Light-so-howdo-we-get-home-now DART to Gainesville-area cab companies, which charge higher rates on game days from three hours before until three hours after the game. Instead of charging based on how far you're driven, most of the companies charge flat rates, whether you're going just around the block or halfway across town. Regional Transit System buses run infrequently to the campus area on game days -if at all -so many drunken students need cabs to get them home safely. And it's not like the cab drivers get much out of this -they don't get paid overtime. All their money comes from tips. So the greedy companies pocket all the extra money they're charging riders, while those doing the legwork get the short end of the stick. This next thing we're not really mad about. We're mostly just confused. So here's a what-the-hell-is-going-on DART for Student Government. The new election season is barely underway and already the mud is being slung. The Gator, Swamp and Impact parties all had complaints lodged against them. And another registered party, Greek, is probably just here to mislead everyone. Why can't we all just get along? Don't get us wrong -no party should ever run -unopposed, and no party should be allowed to break the rules. But will any of this petty bickering going on right now accomplish anything? Probably not. What else really irks us? The fact that companies have to put their names on everything. So here's a can-you-hear-ouroutrage-now DART for Gator Growl for attaching its new sponsor's name to the show's official title. No longer can we call it "Gator Growl 2007: Nation of Champions." Now that Verizon Wireless has given the show $112,500, we've got to tack "presented by Verizon Wireless" on the name. Maybe we're bitter, but all this corporate hoopla makes us want to growl. What happened to the good ol' days when having your name in the program and a few ads was enough? Are the industry wars so fierce that if a company's name isn't constantly shoved in our faces, it'll immediately lose market power and flounder into financial despair? Something tells us that's not the case. Finally, we're mad because of more pointless UF rules. We chuck a don't-call-it-safety-if-it's-really-an-aesthetic-issue DART at the UF Housing Department for its ban on clotheslines on campus. While it insists that having clotheslines around campus could be a safety issue, we don't see it. Are volleyball and tennis nets a safety issue, too? And candies just don't compare to clotheslines, contrary to what the department may say. We can understand why students can't drape their clothes all over campus, but one or two clotheslines set up outside dorms and family housings' laundry rooms wouldn't be too intrusive. It would help out the environment, make our clothes last longer -and we'd have more money to spend on drinks on game days. Now that's something we can smile about. the independent florida alligator Lyndsey Lewis EDITOR Adam Berry MANAGING EDITOR Jessica Holland OPINIONS EDITOR Leigh Shapiro EDITORIAL BOARD The Allgator encourages comments from readers.

Just use our handy chart to get a grip on who cares about what, and to what extent they care about it: THE PARTIES: THcEISSUES: SwM .A :Colum-n Even clels ca uvv oob l *a e hat I am about to say has never been said before. I do not believe that anyone, in the history of UF, has expressed the following words, for fear of being a social outcast forever and possibly banished from The Gator Nation. Ready? Here it is: I don't understand football. That's right. To me, watching a football game is comparable to staring at a really modem piece of art. I just don't get it. Everyone else at UF seems to have been born with an extra section of the brain dedicated to knowing every possible fact about Gators football. At any given time around campus, professors and students chat about the threats we will face when we play opposing teams. As Saturday nears, thousands of fervent fans comb their orange-andblue wigs and buy fresh cans of body paint. People know everything from the stats to the favorite movies of every player. I have a theory that Gators fans are more obsessed with college football than any other university in the world. To further prove this point, Gator Boosters are paying upward of $1 million to-have dinner with Urban Meyer. I'm going to go out on a limb and guess they already know what his favorite food is. It's not that I don't care about football. It's just that I fail to understand the rules. I regularly read the sports section in hopes of picking up a few facts, but it's no use. If you are like me -one of the sad few who thinks a scrimmage is a type of seafood -don't give up hope. All we have to do is pretend to be as passionate as everyone else. For the small number of in-the-closet football fakes, I'll list of two very important points to remember when pretending to be a football know-it-all: No. 1. Cheer when other people cheer, and No. 2. Never ask questions. The first rule is easy enough to follow. All you have to do is yell, "Go Gators!" at steady intervals Colleen Shea throughout the game. Make sure letters@alligator.org you only cheer when the Gators are dominating the field. However, if you happen to make the mistake of cheering when the other team scores, don't fret. Simply rebut with, "Oh, so I can't boost morale? Where is your team spirit? They may have just intercepted the ball and scored a major touchdown, but they're still GATOR BAIT!" It's always a good strategy to make the other person seem like the disloyal fan. If you are in the zone and feeling particularly adventurous, try blurting out football lingo at random. For example, whenever the ball touches the ground, yell, "Fumble!" This is a very clever move, as it will appear you actually understand the terminology. And, finally, the most important thing to remember as a clueless viewer is that you are never, under any circumstances, allowed to ask questions. I once broke this rule and asked, "What does 'fourth down' mean? Is that bad?" Needless to say, my answer came in the form of an open mouth and a look that said, "You have got to be kidding me." So, during Saturday's game against. .whomever we're playing, remember to show your support for the Gators -even if you don't know what's going on. Colleen Shea is a sophomore majoring in journalism.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, 7 Letters to the Editor Swamp assigns seats for a reason As a lifelong Gators fan and UF student, I did not have much fun at last week's football game versus Western Kentucky University. My girlfriend and I had good seats -about 25 rows up -close to the action with a good view. When it was time for kickoff, everyone stood up, and a fun time was to be had by all, right? Not so much. Before and during the game, people were on their cell phones, signaling to their friends to leave their assigned seats from higher sections to come down to the lower section. About five minutes into the game, my girlfriend and I were a row below our assigned seats, about five seats to the left and standing sideways with no room to maneuver -not even to do the Gators chomp. When the rightful owners of those seats arrived a few -minutes late, they tried to squeeze into the already-cramped spaces. We tried to get back to our original seats, but they had been taken. It took a nice member of the Gainesville Police Department to make enough room for us to actually see the game; even then it was very cramped. Halftime arrived, and we expected some people to leave, giving us more breathing room. Few did -and more people were coming down to our section. Fed up, we left for the O'Connell Center. Gators fans, fellow students: Please, you have assigned seats. You can find them on your tickets. Dana Preble 3EG Not all students back-tuition increase .It was interesting to read the Wednesday Alligator's pro-tuition-increase editorial. I am sure I am not the only one who found it bizarre. The editorial demanded that UF wants an increase in tuition. Who exactly is "UF," anyway? It is obviously not the students, the majority of whom do not want to pay any more money to the school than they or their parents already do. .Some students support an increase, but only if that money is guaranteed to be directed toward need-based grants or new faculty hires. The editorial said 12 student government leaders from Florida's public universities went to Tallahassee to talk with Gov. Charlie Crist, and "about half of the leaders said they would support a tuition increase if it went toward reducing class size or providing need-based scholarships." The editorial also stated Crist did not listen to the students because in May he vetoed a 5-percent tuition increase. Since when does"about half" constitute a majority? There were 12 student leaders, so "about half" can, at most, be five people -an obvious minority. So maybe Crist was listening to the majority. And isn't that what democracy is all about? Scott Erker 8LS Donations, investments sh Thanks for being so o the protest. Maybe the Allig its homework before reactin well. First of all, SDS didn't dents' tuition money goes quite well how to find th online. What we were askin the money handled by the Corporation goes. We're also well aware of UFICO and the UF Founda organizations (I assume you means) and thus aren't ob spending records. But since go to students, we should at that money is being spent. As far as protesting go we haven't tried other mel made phone calls and sent ] to Machen and the Alligat like the only way we can get write about us is to make the of ourselves. So thanks a lot for putting understand what we were plish for us and you. We'll from now on and leave the p ancestors. Transparency protest ach An editorial headli Wednesday's demonstration ould be public ency was pointless and that it "didn't acne-sided about complish much."

8, ALLIGATOR E FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7,2007 AROUND GAINESVILLE High cab prices discourage taxi use on game days By KRISTINA PEIN Alligator Contributing Writer Mike Bentley wanted to take a cab to the first Gators football game of the season so a DUI arrest would not ruin his night. But when the UF graduate student learned that a ride with City Cab would cost $20, he changed his mind. Bentley decided to take his chances driving after drinking alcohol rather than pay the high cab fares on game days. "It was going to be cheaper for me to drive to the game and find a spot rather than wait 30 minutes for the cab to get there," said Bentley, who drove from his apartment to the stadium. The drive to the stadium from his home at Camelot Apartments, at the corner of Southwest 34th Street and Southwest Second Avenue, is under two miles. City Cab's fares are not usually so high. On any given day, the same ride would only cost $8 or $9. "If the town's goal is to help keep people safe, then the fares need to be controlled," Bentley said. "But I suppose safety doesn't make much money" Cab companies can charge a flat rate on game days as long as the fare is posted by the cab, according to the Gainesville Code of Ordinances. A seasonal sale, promotional or sidewalk sale, parade, festival or home football game are all considered special events, according to the City of Gainesville's Web site. Bestway Cab Co. also raises fares. The two-mile ride, Bentley needed would have cost at least $8 on an average day. The same ride would have cost a flat rate of $15 for two people three hours before and three "If the town's goal is to help keep people safe, then the fares need to be controlled. But I suppose safety doesn't make much money." Mike Bentley UF graduate student hous after a game. Students should save money to pay for cabs on game day to avoid the temptation to drink and drive, said Jeff Holcomb, spokesman -for the University Police Department. "What's the cost of a life if you drive drunk?" he said. "It's a much more costly alternative than a cab fare." Jared Sheffield, a UF alumnus who came from out of town, said he decided to stay the night at his fraternity house so he could walk to and from the game. "When it comes down to it, many students convince themselves that they can make the two-mile drive and save themselves some cash," Sheffield said. New students find ways to get involved at Gatorfest E THE EVENT ATTRACTED ABOUT 2,000 STUDENTS. By ANGELA PETERSEN Alligator Contributing Writer New and old faces trailed into the O'Connell Center on Thursday night to get a taste of The Gator Nation for Gatorfest. Gatorfest, a part of the Division of Student Affairs' Weeks of Welcome program, introduced new students to involvement opportunities, events and Gator traditions. About 2,000 students attended the event. The pep rally featured performances by the Fightin' Gator Marching Band, The Dazzlers dance team and UF cheerleaders. Several UF administrators, Student Government officials and UF coaches made appearances and brief speeches. Student Body Vice President Vanessa Goodwin and Student Body Treasurer EJ Walicki called the incoming class of 2011 the most academically competitive class to enter UP. Afterward, UF President Bernie Machen offered advice to students to get all they can out of the classroom and remember "the best is yet to come."

Students quickly nabbed free T-shirts and hand towels as they swamped the entrance. By about 7 p.m., more than 1,000 freebies had been handed out. Students also were given a gift package of a key chain and tassel that was to remain unopened until the end of the rally. Wibeto said the key chain symbolized a welcome to UP, and the tassel represented the final goal of graduation. The event drew On new students adjustCalZMPUS ing to student life and eager to be more involved in Gators traditions. Michael Renneker, a UF freshman, said he is adapting well to life at UP. He said the first day of classes reminded him of Walt Disney World. Erica Rands, another UF freshman, said she came to the pep rally because she was excited to see the marching band. She said she missed it at the first football game of the season last Saturday. -Rands said her first few weeks at UF have been a big adjustment, but she is looking forward to joining "The Gator Nation family." -l ppetiZe withOO te pAR rJ Lse r ru "3 'ea, Or/eans cSlyfe J-eslauzwn/" Located on 110 SE 1" Street 372-1555 www.hookedonharrys.com Gainesville location only.

Steven Blank UF cites safety as reason for ban LAUNDRY, from Page 1 effort to have the look of its grounds and facilities give off a certain aura," he said. "It gives off a different look than what we're going for if there are clotheslines everywhere."~ Brown-Salazar wants UF to change the policy. He said new energy-saving light bulbs had been installed in all the village housing, but residents were being forced to use energy-inefficient electric dryers. Holland contended safety factors were more pressing than conserving energy. "We aren't against saving energy," he said. "But if someone wants to save energy by using candles, obviously they can't; there's a safety element there. It's the same for the clotheslines." Brown-Salazar has started a petition for his community, and he said he plans to submit it in less than one month to UP's housing officials. He cited examples from Florida statutes that promote the use of solar drying. Those statutes don't apply to condominiums or apartment complexes though. "The university is not keeping the spirit of that law though," he said. Brown-Salazar got the go-ahead from the mayor of his village to petition UF housing to set up clotheslines. Not every unit needs a clothesline, but there should be a designated area on campus where students can line-dry their clothing, he said. Holland said that students can use drying racks in their own apartments to dry their clothes. Additionally, he said that officials are willing to take suggestions. "We always entertain suggestions and ideas from the students," he said. "Would we rule out looking at it again? If the situation was right, we would consider it. But since it is part of the contract, we aren't going to be quick to remove it either." TENT, from Page 1 be able to provide emergency shelter housing for every individual," Woods said. This week, the Gainesville Police Department started posting trespass notices to warn homeless people of the pending relocation. Woods said starting Wednesday, official trespass notices and emergency shelter vouchers will be passed out by GPD. The voucher will enable them to obtain bed space at either The Salvation Army or St. Francis House. If a person has serious health issues, other arrangements will be made, Woods said. Each individual will have five days to use the voucher. In August, City Commission decided, in a 5-to-1 vote, that all homeless people living on the public property of Tent City would have to be relocated. Woods said, "If private-property owners say that anyone living on their property is trespassing, they can request assistance from the GPD."

Sports FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2007 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Picks Column SITE: The Swamp (cap. 88,548) KICKOFF: Saturday 6 p.m. TV/RADIO: PPV/WRUF AM850 For tomorrow's matchup between UF and Troy, the alligatorSports Brand Picks Column has reached into its collective bedside table for some perspective on the Troy Trojans. We called up Jim Daniels, the Vice President of Marketing for Trojan, the makers of "America's #1 Condom." The company began in fhe 1920s, and while the origin of the name is uncertain, some stories point to the protective nature of the city of Troy and its soldiers. Not to be premature, but we're a bunchof straight-shooters-Saturday's, game shouldn't be dose, and Troy could probably learn a thing or two from its prophylactic brethren. Sorry, if that was a low blow (on that note, Trojan makes flavored condoms, too). So what are the benefits of Trojan condoms? "The obvious benefits are to protect against unexpected pregnancies and the spread of STDs," Daniels said. "With correct use and compliance, they are 98 to 99 percent effective." With those numbers, who wouldn't want condoms on the field? The Gators registered four sacks against Western Kentucky, and Troy will need some reliable protection to prevent the same from happening. Since the football Trojans have already allowed a sack this season, the pieces of latex seem to offer more protection than the Troy offensive line. "I don't think Troy is 98 or 99 percent effective, so yes, we would be more protective," Daniels said. Until recently, the company was represented by the "Trojan Man," who would come to the rescue of young couples by offering condoms. Trojan Man was pretty jacked, so it made us wonder what kind of football player he would make. "He would probably be a coach," Daniels said. "One of the things consumers have SEE PICKS, PAGE 19 QB Haugabook puts Trojans on map By NICK ZACCARDI Alligator Staff Writer nzaccardi@alligator.org When Tony Franklin took over as the offensive coordinator at Troy after the 2005 season, he quickly realized one big problem. He didn't have a quarterback. "Before I ever took the job, (Troy head coach Larry Blakeney) sent me film," said Franklin, a former offensive coordinator at Kentucky. "I looked at the quarterbacks and didn't feel like there was anybody here that could play and do what I wanted to do." So Franklin did what any other enterprising coordinator would do. He scanned recruiting Web sites, checking out Scout, Rivals and Sunshine Preps. "That's where I saw him," Franklin said. "Fundamentally, he was doing the things I believe in. He kept the ball high, he had hot feet and he did real well in the pocket. Immediately, I knew he was the guy. Because of those three things, he was somebody I wanted to find more about." The guy was Omar Haugabook, a 6-foot-2,220-pound quarterback out of Dodge City (Kan.) Community College. "Immediately, I knew he was the guy. Because of those three things, he was somebody I wanted to find more about." Tony Franklin Troy offensive coordinator The day Franklin passed his NCAA recruiting test, he got Haugabook on the phone. Franklin convinced Haugabook to de-commit from Marshall by explaining how cold it was in West Virginia and how much closer Troy was to his home of Belle Glade. Haugabook took the bait and packed for Troy. In his first season, Haugabook earned Sun Belt Player of the Year honors and led the Trojans to a win in the New Orleans Bowl. Haugabook presented problems for defenses with his ability to pass (2,401 yards and 21 touchdowns) and his running prowess (313 yards and five scores). He's willing SEE TROY, PAGE 19 Associated Press Photo Troy quarterback Omar Haugabook attempts a pass against Arkansas during the first quarter of the game in Fayetteville, Ark., last Saturday. Meyer's Gators too well coached to suffer major upset he question "Who's Now?" was finally answered last week. Appalachian State is now. So who's next? Who's next in line to pull off the stunner? I can't tell you who it will be. But I can tell you who it won't be. It won't be any team invading The Swamp in the near future, and certainly not Troy. Big whoop, you say. Michigan fans uttered the same phrase last week, as did Florida State fans a year ago when Troy came into Tallahassee and nearly pulled an Appalachian State. ESPN2, looking to ruffle some feathers on its fluffy morning show "First Take," brought on. Troy coach Larry Blakeney earlier this week. They asked Blakeney Nick Zaccardi for the magic formula Nick-el Coverage it takes to upset powernzaccardi@alligator.org house teams. Blakeney, whose team blew a 17-10 fourth-quarter lead against the Seminoles, said upsets happen when favorites are not ready to play at the start of games. In other words, the Gators would have to come in unprepared. Is he talking about Michigan being unprepared last week? Or Ohio State being unprepared on Jan. 8 after over a month of, umm, preparation time? Whatever Blakeney's talking about, he can't be referring to any team coached by Urban Meyer. Let me hit you with some stats. Meyer has won 21 straight home games. The last time Meyer lost at home, his home was Salt Lake City, Utah. His quarterback was a young sophomore named Alex Smith.

18, ALLIGATOR E FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7,2007 Gators to travel to Utah, focus on fundamentals Small arena to prepare UF for SEC venues By EVAN DREXLER Alligator Writer Even though the UF volleyBall team is 6-0, Coach Mary Wise will tell you the Gators are far from perfect. "This team is a long ways away from playing its best volleyball," she said. With only one match to go before the Southeastern Conference schedule begins next week, the Gators will take all the time they can get to refine their play. UF travels to Salt Lake City to take on Utah (2-3) Sunday at 6 p.m. Eastern time. Wise talked about getting better at blocking earlier in the season, and the Gators have visibly improved in that area. After blocking in the single digits in their first four matches, the Gators had 10 blocks against Santa Clara on Saturday afternoon and a season-high 16 against Florida State on Wednesday night. But for senior outside hitter Marcie Hampton, that's not enough. "There's a lot we have to get better on," she said. "We have a ton to work on -blocking, serving and just the basics. We have to get better in order to beat [SEC] teams." Senior setter Angie McGinnis has noticed a step-up in play, but said there is plenty of room to get better in setting, passing and blocking. "It's all coming around," she said, "but I definitely think that in order to beat the top teams in the SEC, and then eventually the NCAA Tournament, we have to improve those three areas." The Gators certainly don't want to come out flat like they did against FSU, losing the first game before taking the final three. "If we ever come out like that again, we will all be benched," senior middle blocker Kisya Killingsworth said. Though the Utes have a losing record,.they received votes in the most recent American Volleyball Coaches Association Poll and are coming off a win against Purdue, a team that was No. 17 in the nation at the time. Instead of playing in a large basketball arena like the Gators do, Utah plays its matches in a secondary arena. Wise thinks this experience in Utah will help when SEC play begins. "They play in a smaller auxiliary gym," she said. "And I think that's good for our team before we go into places like Alabama and some of the SEC schools that play in a smaller facility, where the crowd's right on top of you." UF and Utah met last season with UF taking the win 3-1 at home. McGinnis recorded UF's second career triple-double in that match with 56 assists, 11 digs and 10 kills. Hampton leads the team in kills with 72, outside hitter Amber McCray is second with 48 and Killingsworth is third with 37. "We all play with a love for the game and we're all very competitive," Hampton said. "As a group, [the seniors] look to set an example." McGinnis is also up there in kills, with 32 so Sfar. She is tallying 1.78 kills per game, more than half a kill per game higher than her career average before Her kills often come on sneaky downward slaps over the net when the opponent thinks she is going to set the ball to a hitter instead. "The team needs that in order to open up our offense," McGinnis said. "In order for the block on the other side to be confused, they have to be worrying about the setter kill as well as the hitter. I kind of have to do that in order to open up our offense.", These kills come as a surprise both to the opponent and her Gators teammates, resulting -in louder-than-usual cheers in the post-point huddle. "I think sometimes I fake people out," McGinnis said. "That's why they get so excited, because they didn't know it was coming." JAECKEL TO REDSHIRT: Freshman outside hitter Kristy Jaeckel will redshirt the 2007 season. Jaeckel, who is not yet 18 years old, came into UF as a PrepVolleyball.com All-American and played on the 2007 U.S. Junior National A2 Team. She was not scheduled to be a freshman this year and instead was going to wait until the 2008 season to enroll. But her mother, Sharon, said she is very competitive and wanted to train early to be ready for 2008 without losing her first year. "She wanted to get stronger, and she didn't want to bum a year of eligibility," Sharon said.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2007 I ALLIGATOR, 19 Meyer: Haugabook's arm extremely accurate TROY, from page 17 to do either to win games. "I can throw it, and I can run," Haugabook said. "It all depends on how the games go." He put Troy on the college football map last season by scaring the daylights out of Seminole nation in week two. The Trojans led 17-10 in the fourth quarter before Drew Weatherford PICKS, from page 17 brought Florida State back for a 24-17 escape. Haugabook attempted a seasonhigh 46 passes in the game, but his interceptions abruptly ended Troy's final two drives. "That was my first big Division-I game," Football Haugabook said. "I made some mistakes, but I also did some good things. I learned from that game." Haugabook had similar problems in the second half. of last week's 46-26 loss told us about the brand is that it is like a trusted mentor. He's approachable, tells it like it is and he's always there to help you out. Obviously the coach doesn't get into the game, but he can help the players have success." According to a study done by Trojan last year, the Gators would benefit from a visit by the Trojan man; UF ranked 49th out of 100 schools in Trojan's Sexual Health Report Card survey and earned an "F" in condom availability. With a horde of Trojans due in town Saturday, that grade should improve some in the 2007 rankings. Over the years, Trojan has made an effort to increase pleasure for its users with things like vibrating rings and corkscrew designs, so what would bring more enjoyment to Gators fans: a win or one of the company's products? "That's a good question," Daniels said. "Let's just hope that the students on the Florida campus have a great time, and if they choose to celebrate by being sexually active, they make sure they have a Trojan condom for protection." With that said, Daniels isn't ready to award UF a win just yet; he picked the Gators to win but expects a tough fight. "Troy is going to put up some very good defense, given their namesake, and they will be respected," he said. With that, on to the picks! Leading off with an 8-2 record is Bryan "Let me make sure. this is okay with my girlfriend" Jones, who has survived for weeks off of crumbs he found in his unkempt mustache. to Arkansas. He hopes to take those experiences as well as lessons learned in losses to Georgia Tech and Nebraska last season into The Swamp this week. The Gators will be waiting. "He has a different throwing motion, but he's an extremely accurate passer," UF coach Urban Meyer said. "I know he struggled a little bit against Arkansas,but that was more in the second half. Early in that game he did a great job. That was a heck of a job in the first half." In the two-spot, also at 8-2, is Brian "Sneakers only get better with age" Steele, who will miss the entire opening weekend of the NFL season when he realizes MTV is running a marathon of America's Next Top Model. Hitting third with a 6-4 mark is Jenna "Ooh, pick the team with the cutest mascot to win the Super Bowl" Marina, whose hair in her columnpicture looks eerily like Joakim Noah's locks minus his token hair tie. Now if only we could get her to stop wearing those billowy African gowns around the office -she's scaring away the new staff. Batting cleanup at 6-4 is Mike "I like to pick up the occasional running back on the side of the road" McCall, whose top three searches on Google are "david garrard topless," "ecu pep band song lyrics" and "david garrard shirtless." He'll love every minute of those muscles if he has enough hand lotion to last him through the night. Bringing up the rear, also at 6-4, is Nick "I'll cover your high school soccer game for free" Zaccardi, who has had a rough couple of days, as his beloved Illinois football team lost last week and Lon Kruger has yet to respond to his message on eHarmony.

But what about the road games? OK, Meyer lost at Alabama, at LSU and at South Carolina in his first year. He lost at Auburn in 2006. Only a couple of those defeats can be considered upsets. If Troy beats the Gators, it would be an embarrassment, not an upset. And when was the last time somebody embar-; rassed a Meyer-coached team? Again, go back to the Utah days. The 24th-ranked Utes lost by 12 to a three-loss New Mexico team in 2003, though I don't remember gasping in horror when seeing that score come across the ticker. So Meyer doesn't lose at home, and he doesn't get embarrassed. He doesn't overlook teams, either. The real start of the season comes next week as Phillip Fulmer brings his Tennessee Vols into Gainesville, looking for his first win over Meyer. The same scenario came into play in 2006. The Gators easily won their opener and faced a "trap" game before heading to Tennessee. UF blanked Central Florida 42-0 -led by a 27-point second quarter -and started packing for Knoxville at halftime. In 2005, the Gators romped 41-3 over Louisiana Tech the week before Tennessee. The Trojans do have one thing going for them: gamblers seem to like them. They opened as 27-point underdogs. As of Thursday night, that number fell to 26 1/2 as everyone drinking the Appalachian State Kool-Aid put their money on the Trojans, at least to cover the spread. Las Vegas knows something.

20, ALLIGATOR N FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7,2007 UFSOCCER Gators to take on in-state rivals Seminoles, Bulls By DANNY KLEIN Alligator Writer Say what you will about Florida State, but Ashley Harris isn't listening. When the UF soccer team hosts the Seminoles this weekend, Harris, a senior from Royal Palm Beach, will have no problem looking past the garnet and gold. "Rival teams? I don't have any," Harris said. "All my teams are rivals." Harris, along with the rest of the No. 14 Gators (1-1), will host the No. 9 Seminoles (11) this Sunday at 1:30 p.m. at James G. Pressly Stadium. FSU will be the Gators' second top-10 opponent, and they are only two weekends into the season. The Seminoles, along with last Sunday's opponent, Notre Dame, made up one half of last year's final four. For Harris, a chance to play such a highcaliber team is what she needs to get motivated. "I like having competition," she said. "That's what I like about the game. It's exciting. It's competing -it's what we're here for. If we didn't want to compete, then why would we play sports?" Harris is only one of the eight seniors on the team who have experienced victory against their in-state foe. The Seminoles have defeated the Gators in the past two contests, and in three of the last five. Last year, FSU scored a late first-half goal that would prove too much for UF, who fell to the then-ranked No. 2 Seminoles 1-0. The game, held in Tallahassee, was played in front of a record crowd of 4,582 at Seminole Soccer Complex. This year, the Gators hope to set an attendance record of their own, as they try to eclipse the 4,745 fans who attended the 1999 matchup between the two teams. "I expect a typical UF-FSU crowd," Harris said. "Packed stadium -so many people that they can't all fit in the stands. .It's a lot of fun getting fans out there; it pumps us up. Especially if we're down a goal, we need our fans there for us." Even UF coach Becky Burleigh is getting into the spirit. "I'm hoping they're really rowdy and crazy," she said. "That's what we like." But before the Gators Harris kick off Sunday's highly anticipated game, they will have to tackle another nearby opponent. On Friday at 7 p.m., the Gators will take on South Florida. The Bulls have only played one game so far, a double-overtime tie against Mississippi. This will be USF's first regular-season trip to Gainesville and only the second meeting between the programs. There is some familiarity as the two squads met last spring for an exhibition game in Tampa, where the Gators pulled out a 2-0 victory. Burleigh said her team has no intention of looking past the Bulls. "We played them in the spring, and it was a battle," she said. "They're a real defenseoriented team, and this is going to be a real test for us. They want to defend hard, and we need to take care of our opportunities, especially in this game because we may not get too many." Following last weekend's loss to No. 2 Notre Dame, the Gators remain confident as they move deeper into the season. "I don't think it was a make-or-break type of thing," junior forward Ameera Abdullah said. "We're going to just keep doing what we're doing and continue to move forward."

They let out small chuckles and their dimples resonate on their schoolboy faces. Thenothe questions from reporters continue: Do you finish each other's sentences? "We always do it," theysay in unison. Next. Have you ever switched places in classes? "We always wanted to but never did," one says. Two seconds later. "We always wanted to but never did," the othersays, copying the prior's words without realizing it, creating laughter from each other and those surrounding. Think you've just developed double vision? Nope. It's just a whole lot of Pouncey. "Not many," they say together on how many peoplecanetellthem apart. "They just call us Pouncey twins." Mike and Maurkice -better known as The Pouncey Twins. Better known as two pillars for thefuture of UF's offensive line. Better known as theblockers and protectors for Tim Tebow, Percy Harvin and KestahnMoore. And better known as two of the goofiest 300-plus-pound men you will ever meet. "They're jokesters right there," said senior offensive lineman Carlton Medder, who is Maurkice's roommate. "They're always getting you laughing. Always keeping a smile on your face. There's never a down time with them." Hungry Men The Pounceys have developed a reputation as jokesters, but there's no joke if you keep them from the buffetline. "Alltthey do is eat -every second," freshman running back and former Lakeland High teammate Chris Raineysaid. "They don't care what it is." Wherever the Pounceys wander in search of their next refueling station, it's not a pretty sight for waiters and waitresses. "Some cooks start sweating (when we walk in)," Mike said. "'Man, we got to cook another batch of something.' "Me, mybrother, Carl Johnson and Marcus Gilbert went to Hooters one day and shut it down. Had everything in there. (The waitresses are like) 'Dang, we got a lot to feed."' Maurkice gets the same feeling. "We walk in and they're like, 'There's going to be a lot more tipptng for a lot more cooking,"' he said. Then there's the day when their mother, Lisa Webster, works the hardest -Thanksgiving. "It's trouble there," Mike said. "We eat everythicng. We have like a fiesta over there.' But they're not just hungry off the field. They're hungry on it, too. "For a true freshman, Maurkice is hungry. He's real hungry" Meddersaid. "He's always asking me questions about this play, about that play, about this one, about that one. That's always a good sign from a freshman." The offensive line has recognized the Pounceys' abilities. UF coach Urban Meyer even said Maurkice was one of the finest freshman offensive linemenhe has ever seen. And Maurkice's play has backed up that statement so far. In his first game Saturday against Western Kentucky, Maurkice started in place of the injured Phil Trautwein, who is out idefinitely with a stress fracture in his right foot. He learned he would take the job just a few days prior. But after several late-ight study sessions with Medder, including one that went past midnight, Maurkice was ready and the offensive line didn't miss a beat.

"It's always nice to have guys that like to joke around, but when it's time to get serious, they know to buckle down and get serious. That shows a great deal of maturity. "Soemees you feel separated-some of the younger guys from the older guys -but they fit in right away, and they're just good guys.", Ladies' Men Ask the Pounceys what they think about something, and it's like a broken record. Mike haslayedeith er guagd orJckle his entire football career, but he's recently been switched to center. Still, if you're a Pouncey there are no worries. On cleaning the intricacies of the new position: "It's fun," Mike said. "I get to tell everybody what to do." So, what's not fun for the jolly giants? "Just being at home by ourselves," Mike said. "We want to be around everybody When we're at home in the dorm, we're like, 'Let's go outside or something.'We can'tstand being by ourselves." They say the longest time they have ever spent apart from each other is probably a "class period," but there are some times where they do want to be alone. Like around girls. Especially whenthey switch on them. "Switching up on girls, we did that a couple times," Maurkice said. "They might find out one day -like after (this quote goescin the paper)." So, do theyhlike the same girls? "If they'repretty," Maurkice said "We're not picky," Mike said at the same time. A few seconds later. "Maybe we're kind of picky," Mike added afterrglancing over at his brother. As the term "kissing your sister" applies to a tie in sports, you don't want to betkissing the same girl as your brother, either. "We just wanted to stop playing around," Maurkice said. "You can hurt a girl's feelings like that. We didn't want to mess around with the same girls." Switching for a girl is one thing, but would the Pounceys dare pull the switch on Meyer? "I don't know," Mike said. "I don't want to find out (what he'd do)." However, Meyer said in the spring that he couldn't tell them apart. When askedmorerecently if he could tell Mike from Maurkice, Meyer nodded. "One's 55, one's 56. Maurkice is 56." Family Men The Pounceys protect more than their quarteRaiey lived with the Pounceys for four years prior to arriving at U. "Without Rainey we still have that team bond, but we love Rainey," Maurkice said. te a block on the offensive line during the Gators' 49-3 victory over Western Kentucky. "If anything happens to Rainey we just break down and cry. We just love having him around." Maurkice has a tattoo that reads, "The Chosen One." If nothing else, he was chosen by Rainey. Rainey, who said he has had a "hard life," made the decision to move in with the Pounceys and was supported by his brother, former NFL and XFL running back Rod Smart, aka "He Hate Me." "Those kids have grown up together," Lakeland High offensive line coach John Flath said. "When one needs something, the others are there." But it wasn't the easiest transition. "It was difficult at first," Mike said. "We had our own rooms, and Rainey moved in and moved into my -oom. Rainey doesn't like nobody tobe loud, and I got a snoring problem. So the first night he's putting pillows over my face, and I'm waking up and I can't breathe. "So from then on my brother and I moved into a room. We gave Rainey his own room." Thenthere was, well, an incident.' When they first came to Gainesville, the Pounceys had two scooters. But when Rainey arrived, that number was quickly cut in half. "Rainey wrecked mine whee first got up here," Maurkice said. "He hit a pole." Added Mike, jokingly: "We rent letting Rainey drive nothing." Sharing one scooter is a pretty big dilemma for thePounceys. When you combine for 624 pounds of man on one scooter, that's an issue if you want to move rhore than five mies per hour. Mike said they have a 150cc scooter that supports them both, but even with that the Pounceys have become the poster kids of the Facebook group "I've Seen Two HugeFootball Players on a Tiny Scooter!" College Men Running out of the tunneling The Swamp 41f for the firsttime was a unique experience for Maurkice. With 90,000 fans cheering and the next era of their life set to begin, Maurkice had a problem: He had to go to the bathroom. "Yeah, (I almost peed)," Maurkice said on running out of the tunnel for the first time. "I got chills running down my arms. (I thought), 'Oh shit, herefit comes."' As for Mike? "Me too. I'm the same way," Mike said. "I was nervous. I was even more nervous for him because he was starting." For the first time ever, one Pouncey took the field without the other. "That (was) the first time (I didn't play with my brother)," Maurkice said. "Withhmy teammates now,theyfeel likebrothers. So it really felt like he was already out there." Mike did get into the game later, but from the sidelines he plays the role of cheerleader for his brother. "Ifelt like he deserved it," Mike said. "I'm his biggest fan. Every play I watch him. He comes to the sideline and he messed up. I'm Ske, 'Come on, man, you got to get it.'" Meyer said after the game that Maurkicer wasn't perfect, but there was one play that stood out. Maurkice was able to flatten a Western Kentucky lineman near the end zone. "I was real excited whenthat happened," Maurkice said. "I was like, 'Oh man, it was just like high school again.'" But it's not high school, and for the Pounceys, that's a good thing. With all due respect to the state champion Lakeland Dreadnaughts, their loveable, mammoth twins have encountered a whole new life in Gainesville. "I've never been in an atmosphere like this where we prepare so much," Maurkice said. "I thought at Lakeland we did a good job of preparing, but this makes Lakeland look like it's nothing. I had never seen anything like (the atmosphere in The Swamp)." Alligator File Phot The Pouncey brothers sit with Aaron Hernandez (center) during Florida Pro Scout Day on March 7 at The Swamp. Gators take notice of Michigan loss, prepare for Troy By JENNA MARINA Alligator Staff Writer After Appalachian State stunned Michigan last week, the Gators have been taking notes of what not to do Saturday when they take on Troy in The Swamp. "Any time a big powerhouse like that goes down to a team not even in our division, it's a real big surprise," UF center Drew Millersaid. "It just proves that anythingcan happen in a football game if you don't prepare right." Though some may assume that UF's first two games against Western Kentucky and Troy do not present a challenge for the Gators, acloser look at the Trojans might prove otherwise. Troy is the signing Sun Belt Conference champion and won its first howlgamein the progratI'srhistory last season, defeating Rice in the New Orleans Bowl. Troy senior Omar Haugabook is a proven quarterback with some talent around him, including running back Kenny Cattouse, who was placed on the Doak WalkerAward watch list this season. It's the same list that features players like Arkansas' Darren McFadden and Rutgers' Ray Rice,both Heisman contenders. The Trojans return nearly all of their starters, making it virtually the same team that nearly upset a top-10 Florida State squad last September. While the Gators don't plan on losing to Troy, UF coach Urban Meyer did say he is concerned that UF might believe it already has the game in the bag. "I worry about that with the older guys like Drew Miller or CarltonMedder, but they are such good kids, and we are going to be on them so hard that I don't see thathbeing a problem," Meyer said. MiSler agrees, but said he could see how some teams might show up and expect to sleepwalk to victory. "It's easy when you go against teams like that the last few years and usually blow them out -not really getting a scare," tiller said. "Teams come in as underdogs, and they'll do all kinds of things -crazy blitzes, different things on offense -and that can confuse you if you don't prepare nght." During last week's 49-3 victory againstWesternKentucky, ler wasn't completely happy with the way UF won the game. "We had a couple drives where I saw the guys kind of go down to (Western Kentucky's level)," Miller said. "Wien we were on the sideline, I would try to regroup them and say, 'This can't happen. We got to score as much as we can to getthe young guysrin,sothey can get gameexperience.'" 1 Who: Troy at UF Kickoff: B p.m. Where: Ben Hill Griffin Stadilum Series: This is the first meeting between the two teams.
