Dahlem memorial tagged with Meyer quote


By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

A memorial for a Gainesville police officer
on the 34th Street Wall has been covered with
the now-infamous words "DONT TASE ME
BRO."
Lt. Corey Dahlem died after being hit by a
drunken driver in the spring.
After UF student Andrew Meyer was
Tasered by a University Police Department of-
ficer Monday, Dahlem's memorial was tagged
in bold red lettering Wednesday with words
Meyer shouted.
"EVERY COP INVOLVED SHOULD ROT
IN PRISON" also takes up about six sections
of the wall.
UF engineering student Phillip Sutton
paused as he passed by the wall.
"This is not necessary," Sutton said.
Political science junior Ben Dictor, who
has participated in campus protests against
Meyer's Tasering, said, "The man lost his life
protecting ours, and he deserves to be remem-
bered that way."
Kharyssa Rhodes, program director of
Keep Alachua County Beautiful, helps with
wall maintenance.
She said the organization would try to fix
the memorial in the next 24 hours.
Additionally, she said, she plans to take
care of larger graffiti Saturday morning with'
volunteers.

Taser use under review

The Florida Department of Law
Enforcement, known as FDLE, has begun
its investigation into the University Police
Department's controversial use of a Taser
on Monday.
FDLE will piece together what really
happened, not judge the situation, said
Sharon Gogerty, FDLE spokeswoman.
Andrew Meyer, a UF telecommunica-
tion senior, was Tasered and arrested by
UPD officers during a Monday speech by
Sen. John Kerry, a Democrat representing
Massachusetts. Meyer was charged with a
third-degree felony for violently resisting
arrest and a second-degree misdemeanor

He was released from jail Tuesday

While some students continue to

student Andrew Meyer, other people
are questioning Meyer himself.
Meyer became an Internet and TV
celebrity when videos were posted of
police Tasering him at a speech by Sen.
John Kerry, a Democrat who represents
Massachusetts.

Without such action, Bush
said, "Our national security
professionals will lose critical

country."
"It will be harder to figure
out what our enemies are doing
to train, recruit and infiltrate
operatives into America," the
president said during a visit

"Without these tools, our

The Foreign Intelligence

( the government must obtain
warrants for eavesdropping

proved just before Congress'

Under the new law, the
government can eavesdrop
without a court order on com-

person reasonably believed to
be outside the United States,
even if an American is on one

Thanks in part to protest, Chomp the Vote hits goal


* THE ORGANIZATION AIMED
FOR 1,000 STUDENTS.

By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Alligator Writer
dculclasure@alligator.org

Tuesday's protest over Andrew
Meyer's Tasering offered a chance
for Chomp the Vote, Student
Government's non-partisan voters
drive, to increase its visibility.
Frank Bracco, co-director of
Chomp the Vote, said he went to
protests on Turlington Plaza and
Emerson Alumni Hall to find "stu-


dents who care."
"Since these are students who
seem to care about issues, they
should seem to care about voter
registration, too," Bracco said.
On Wednesday, Chomp the Vote
reached its initial goal of having
1,000 students register to vote or
update their voter information for
Alachua County, Bracco said., The
registrations were a result of the
entire semester's efforts.
"We're very excited about that,
and we're hoping we can keep up
that momentum," he said.
After a successful premiere in
2004, when Chomp the Vote regis-


tered 8,000 voters, the organization
practically disappeared for the next
two years.
Bracco said Chomp the Vote has
turned itself around by becoming
more visible, adding that the organi-
zation is far from its final objective of
registering 3,000 to 5,000 students.
Because of
Student Bracco's appear-
Gov RMIMM Rt ance during the
protest, Chomp
the Vote drew mention on "The Sean
Hannity Show," a talk-radio show.
Hannity described Chomp the
Vote as part of a liberal, left-wing
conspiracy protest, Bracco said.


Then Chomp the Vote's other co-
director, Tyler Antar, called Hannity
and explained that the organization
was just registering students to
vote.
Hannity "was excited, so he
mentioned Chomp the Vote again,"
Bracco said with a laugh. "He
cleared us of being part of the liberal
protest."
The staff of about 25 tries to reg-
ister students on Turlington Plaza at
least three days a week.
About 20 fraternities and sorori-
ties have received voter registration
forms, Bracco said.
He is also planning to supply the


remaining Greek houses with forms,
he said.
Chomp the Vote will also host
socials at the Campus Lodge and
Campus Club apartment complexes
in mid-October, he said. Attendees
can swim, eat free food and register
to vote.
Bracco said the complexes will
host the events for free, but Chomp
the Vote will pay for pizza, drinks
and fliers. He added that he didn't
know the exact cost.
"I'm hoping it will draw a lot of
students," Bracco said. "It may not'
boost registration, but it will defi-
nitely boost awareness."


ON CAMPUS

Law professor's speech centers on Fourth Amendment


By KORI FREDERICK
Alligator Writer

UF law professor Christopher Slobogin
painted a dark, Big Brother-esque picture
Wednesday of the post-Sept. 11 regulation of
government surveillance.
His speech, given in honor of Constitution
Day, which was earlier this week, focused on
his belief that recent surveillance acts are in
direct conflict with the Fourth Amendment,
which protects against unreasonable search
by the government.
The speech took place at the Chesterfield
Smith Ceremonial Classroom at. UF's law
school.
The Fourth Amendment requires that a
warrant with probable cause be signed by a


judge before a search can be performed.
But with the heightened search for ter-
rorists, the system of checks and balances on
the government has become lax, Slobogin
said.
"These days, it's hard to find a reason to
celebrate the Fourth Amendment," Slobogin
said.
There are four types of surveillance the
government uses that the Supreme Court
has ruled are not covered by the Fourth
Amendment. Slobogin believes these should
be regulated by requiring a warrant.
Using slides, Slobogin outlined the four
types of surveillance he thinks should be
covered by the amendment, including com-
munication surveillance.
Communication surveillance refers to


the seizure of phone numbers and e-mail
addresses. This is called envelope informa-
tion the content of the conversation itself
is still protected.
Slobogin said he believes the Fourth
Amendment should -play a bigger role in
governmental surveillance.
"These days, it's hard to find a
reason to celebrate the Fourth
Amendment."
Christopher Slobogin
UF law professor

"The government should have to provide
a justification for surveillance that's propor-
tionate to the intrusion involved," he said.


"As far as the Constitution is concerned,
there is virtually no limit on what the gov-
ernment can do outside of intercepting do-
mestic communication."
Not only has increased surveillance been
unsuccessful, but cameras have only re-
duced crime 6 percent and have done noth-
ing to reduce violent crime, Slobogin said.
Slobogin said the government has held 70
people, most of Middle Eastern descent, for
more than a year but has only charged nine
and convicted four. It has interviewed 15,000
people and convicted 3,000, mostly .of minor
surveillance crimes, he said.
"Sure a lot of Americans will say, 'I've
got nothing to fhide,' he said. "But are you
comfortable with the government tracking
you?"

Bars get fire-safety training
By KATIE GALLAGHER historical fires had caused to public places. A
Alligator Contributing Writer video of a 2003 nightclub fire in Rhode Island


Local bar and nightclub staff members gath-
ered at Rue Bar on Wednesday night for man-
datory fire-safety training with Gainesville Fire
Rescue.
The 52 representatives who completed the
program Operation Safe Club received badges
certifying them as crowd managers.
GFR will require every bar and nightclub to
have at least one crowd manager with a badge
present during its night inspections.
Deputy Fire Chief Tim Hayes said the badge
will show the person is trained in evacuation
plans and 911 calls, making inspections easier.
Nine employees of GFR's Risk Reduction
Bureau were at the meeting.
"This is our whole division right here to-
night," he said. "We don't have enough people to
come down here every night."
Fire investigator Sandy Ellison said the
night inspections are made two to three times a
month.
With 49 bars and nightclubs to visit in
Gainesville, he said, they end up hitting each one
at least twice a year.
Investigators look for blocked exits, over-
crowding and burnt-out exit lights, Ellison said.
The training at Rue Bar covered not only
fire safety and prevention, but also the damage


was shown.
"You know where the manager of this club is
right now?" Hayes asked the crowd during the
video. "He's in jail."
Jordan Cuffe, a manager at Rue Bar, said he
didn't mind the training.
"Most people don't even know the legal ca-
pacity of their building," he said.
"That's why we're here, to learn how to
run a safe establishment."
Detron Colson
Bar One representative

Detron Colson, a representative of Bar One,
said he felt there was no such thing as having too
much information.
"That's why we're here, to learn how to run a
safe establishment," he said.
GFR spokeswoman Laura Koppel said fire-
safety training has always been mandatory, but
it has never been offered by the fire department
before.
"We're a resource for you guys," Hayes said
at the event. "We don't want you to hate to see
us coming."
Both Hayes and Koppel said that another
training session will be held at a later date.


Broward complex's guest policies could see changes


* ONLY GATOR 1 HOLDERS
MAY USE THE FACILITIES.

By CHRISTINE AMARO
Alligator Contributing Writer

On the glass window at the
entrance of the Broward Outdoor
Recreation Complex, bold letters
give a warning.
"Only University of Florida stu-
dents, faculty, staff or their spouses
may use the Broward Outdoor
Recreation Complex. Guests are not
allowed."
But according to David Bowles,
director of recreational sports at UF,



Yep. We've

merged stores

and we're

1717 NW FirstAvenue.
Parking is available. Alongside
the store, across the street in the

the guest policy is subject to change.
The complex, off Museum Road
directly across from Beaty Towers, is
constantly occupied, offering a roller
hockey rink, a state park, equipment
check-out and basketball, volleyball
and tennis courts.
Currently, only Gator 1 cardhold-
ers are allowed to use the facilities,
primarily because overcrowding in
the relatively new complex has been,
a concern, Bowles said.
However, guests are allowed to
use some of the campus recreation
facilities.
According to the UF's Recreation
and Fitness Center policies, all stu-
dents, faculty and staff members


are limited to two guests per day.-
Guests must be 18 or older, and each
guest is limited to using each build-
ing once a semester.
The guests are permitted to use
the Southwest Recreation Center
and the Student
On Recreation & Fitness
Campus Center, also known as
the Racquet Club, but
are not allowed to use
the Broward Outdoor Recreation
Complex.
Jenny Lee, recreational sports
board chair, said the Recreational
Sports Board of Directors, consisting
of 11 students and four faculty mem-
bers, meets once every month from

September to April to discuss policy
changes and facility approvals.
"What's so great about being on
the board is that it involves a lot of
student opinions, and it's because
of issues like this that we are on
the board," Lee said. "Sometimes
faculty members aren't aware issues
like this exist because they aren't
students."
Lee said the guest issue at the
Broward complex is the first thing
she's going to discuss with the board
this month, and it will be addressed
by October.
"When I bring it up, they'll talk
about the pros and cons, what they
can and can't do and decide when


to have the complex available to
guests." she said.
"They'll look at the numbers and
either have the complex available to
guests at certain times or make it
available all the time if overcrowd-
ing isn't an issue," she said.
Another reason why only Gator
1 cardholders are allowed to use the
Broward facilities is to ensure that
the people using the-recreational
center are the ones who have paid
for the activities and services pro-
vided, Bowles said.
Lee said amending the guest
policy at the Broward Outdoor
Recreation Complex would be an
improvement.

Editorial


Later, Gator

Dull platform lacks

depth, new ideas
Considering all that's happened this week -Andrew
Meyer, Tasers, UPD, worldwide'news coverage and
so on everything else just seems'boring in com-
parison. Take, for instance, the Gator Party platform.
Its Tuesday release was a little overshadowed by what
has been dubbed "Tasergate," but we got around to it. -
But there's not much to report. It's safe to say this is one
of the most boring platforms we've seen in a while.
One of the platform's points is to "oppose budget cuts
in the State University System." This just begs the ques-
tion: What Student Government party in its right mind
would support those budget cuts? Who'd vote for those
people? We can't help but imagine Gator just tacked this
onto the end of its platform to take up space.
One idea we thought had potential went sour as soon
as we started asking questions. Gator wants to institute a
"Faculty/Student Discount Day," claiming it would give
college students a break while providing a boost to the
Gainesville economy.
The problem here? Gator said it would probably only
be at the UF Bookstore once a semester, to start. So can
Gator fill us in on the boosting-the-economy part? If the
party could have this at the mall, Target or grocery stores
once a month, we'd listen.
Metered parking at Southwest Recreation Center is a
nice idea, but once again, the logic behind it is flawed.
Parking meters, by nature, require people to meter them.
Unless these meters require about 20 quarters an hour, UF
probably can't afford to hire more parking enforcement
officers for this lot.
Gator prides itself on "tangible" goals it ran with the
same idea in the spring but maybe it should consider
some further-reaching, better thought-out ideas.



Tainted Paint


A n anonymous e-
A mail sent to the

a.m. Wednesday contained
two photographs of two
people clad in Guy Fawkes

Corey Dahlem, who died
in the spring the morning
after the Gators basketball
team won the national
championship. He was hit
by a drunken driver.
It was horribly tasteless
to paint "Don't Tase me,


bro" all over his memorial.
An officer who died while
serving this community in
what should have been one
of its proudest moments
does not deserve such ter-
rible treatment.
Afew bad cops shouldn't
spoil the bunch.
Plus, Dahlem was an of-
ficer with the Gainesville
Police Department, not
the University Police
Department, which is the
department that sparked all
the Taser controversy no
pun intended.
We hope the offending
vandals remain anony-
mous, because mutilating
a memorial to anyone is
nothing to be proud of.

Know everyone just can't stop talking about their
new favorite expression, "Don't Tase me, bro." As
fun as it would be to tackle this obviously worthy (or
not) issue, I'm sick of it.
So, did anyone hear that the horizontal happy face
celebrated its 25th birthday? I'm so excited. I even
baked the beloved "emoticon" apparently that's the
name experts gave the happy face a rounded Funfetti
cake, complete with yellow icing, black icing for the
eyes and black licorice for the mouth. Actually I didn't,
but wouldn't that have been cute?
But something is missing. When the horizontal
happy face first appeared, it had a nose. But that got
lost over time in our hurry to type as fast as humanly
possible.
We need to bring back this facial feature. If I were a
horizontal happy face, I would want a nose.
It's sad our society is so fast-paced we don't even
have time for a nose. It's simple: Add the hyphen. For
the good of humanity, add the hyphen. -
I'm not just rambling about horizontal happy faces.
It was an important contribution to society. How else
would we electronically express our immense happi-
ness, make weak attempts to flirt, try to salvage what's
left of awkward conversations and end sentences when
we don't feel like using periods? Yes, the horizontal
happy face surely bettered online conversational skills.
But the point of this whole bit is we can't even find
time for a nose anymore. For some reason it really
struck me: Even I don't include the nose.
Am I really that busy? I barely make time to call-ny
own family anymore. I love my family, but it's.tough to
realize I have to actually plan ahead to call them.

And I definitely don't cook. I
know how, but I've found myself
looking for organic microwave-
able dinners, rationalizing they
are the same as cooking a meal.

Stephanie thought I was eating space food.
Rosenberg Eating while sitting down is
letters@alligator.org a luxury, too. If I eat standing;
I'm ready to bolt out the door at
a moment's notice. I might bolt hungry, but at least I'll
be able to bolt.
Most disturbing of all, I relish simple staring time.
You know, the time of day when you sit if you're
lucky, lie down and stare. That's right, I appreciate
time when I vegetate while staring at a blank wall in
my room.
I'm not the busiest person in the world. I'm just your
average student, but I'm sure we all feel overwhelmed
by life at times. But like AIM, we've adapted to no noses
and no time. There are people with real problems, real
worries and real responsibilities. But we all have those.
Whether ours are important is subjective, but that's not
for anyone else to judge.
We need to take time for ourselves sometimes. We
need to control our lives instead of being swept up in a
busy current-of eating microwaveable food, penciling in
appointments and eating while standing.
We need to put the noses back in the horizontal
happy faces because 25 years ago, we had the time for
noses.

Letters to the Editor
Defacing memorial crossed line
To the individuals who defaced the memo-
rial to Lt. Corey Dahlem on the 34th Street
Wall: Regardless of what you may believe
about the University Police Department's ac-
tions, you have crossed the line. By tagging
the now infamous "Don't Tase me, bro!" over
a memorial to a dedicated and upstanding of-
ficer, you covered up the most visible mark of
an officer who exemplified how to protect and
serve.
If you want to reclaim any semblance of
honor and decency you may have once had,
you will go back and restore the memorial to
how it was. Lt. Dahlem died in the line of duty,
protecting us he deserves better.

Taser incident sends message to Iraq
I am sickened by the story and video of the
student tortured by the Taser for free speech.
I am shocked by the students who sat by
silently and watched the police abuse. Do they
believe that would never happen to them? It is
very scary that free speech is not valued at UF
by the students and police. And to think we
are told we're fighting for democracy in Iraq.
What message are we sending to the
world?
Marilyn Stanley
Bellaire, Mich.

UPD acted to protect speech attendees
Kudos to Kyle Cox on his column regard-
ing UF student Andrew Meyer. Thank you for
covering many points the media failed to ad-
dress during their biased audio clips. Anyone
who has viewed the full-length videos of the
incident would have to admit there were mul-
tiple non-forceful steps taken prior to Tasering
Meyer.
The video showed that at the time of the
Tasering, Meyer's left arm was not secured
behind his back, but rather stretched out
because he was using it in a dear attempt to
resist arrest.
As a staff member, part of my responsibil-
ity is to ensure the well-being and safety of not
only our student body but also our guests.
Meyer's violent behavior placed others
around him at risk. UPD officers responded


by doing their job.
We live in a post-Columbine, post-Virginia
Tech era, where tragedies occur without warn-
ing with far worse outcomes than Meyer get-
ting shocked.
Bottom line: Meyer broke the law, resisted
arrest, and put others in harm's way. It is a UF
policy to not tolerate disruptive behavior. I
support the quick and appropriate actions tak-
en by UPD to subdue this disruptive student.
Leslie Lear
UF employee, Student Health Care Center

Immature student deserved Tasering
It never ceases to amaze me how liberals
are able to cast any situation into a light that
is beneficial to them; the most recent case in
point being the infamous "Don't Tase me, bro"
incident Monday. In the time it took to upload
a shaky video on YouTube, the liberal talking
points were already spelled out: Fascist police
use force to squash free speech.
However, those who were there or the
millions who watched the incident online
saw a slightly different story. They saw an
aggressive questioner who was disrespectful
to the police, the audience and Kerry with his
well-prepared act. They saw an overdramatic
ideologue attempt to seize his moment of im-
mortality.
Moreover, they saw an arrogant, antagonis-
tic student whose immaturity led to him being
Tasered and carted off to jail for a night. Once
he began violently resisting the orders of the
police, it was their responsibility to each stu-
dent here to use whatever practical means in
getting Meyer subdued.
I applaud UPD for its patience and restraint
in dealing with this unpredictable situation.
Todd Burus
UF graduate student

Meyer should have obeyed police orders
I just hate that Meyer's arrest is an-
other reason for all of the Alligator-reading,
Krishna-Lunch-eating and uniformly biased
college-aged hippies to whine even more than
already.
I dislike the police as much as the next guy
(thanks a lot, speeding ticket from May), but I
respect them. If they tell me to do something,
I do it. And so should everyone else. End of

Taser incident not a free-speech issue
I was present at Meyer's incident and have
to say that the police were 100 percent right
in their actions. He was acting extremely ag-
gressive and being very loud and disruptive,
growing angry right from the beginning. He
seemed to be almost provoking the officers.
This was not in any way an issue of free
speech. Meyer was not Tasered because of
anything that he said. He was Tasered because
he was violently resisting arrest. Contrary to
rumors, he was not handcuffed while being
Tasered. He was Tasered so he could be hand-
cuffed. He was also given repeated warnings
that if he did not calm down and comply with
the officers, he would be Tasered.
I was nervous during the incident, not
knowing whether Meyer might be armed. He
was acting very aggressively, and in today's
post-Sept. 11 world, we cannot simply as-
sume someone is unarmed, especially in that
situation. The auditorium was very full and
has few exits. The officers were only trying to
protect the people in that auditorium, and as
one of them, I am thankful.

Police prevented possible harm
In regards to the Tasering incident on cam-
pus during the Kerry forum, the UPD officers
acted appropriately in the handling of Meyer.
Students and faculty quick to cry out that this
was an injustice need to objectively look at
this situation and realize Meyer caused the
incident, not the police.
As a former Senate page, I used to work
dose to senators, including Kerry. Meyer's be-
havior was unprofessional, disrespectful and
a stain on UF's reputation. It is impossible to
have an intellectual discussion when someone
behaves the way Meyer chose to.
After viewing the various video angles of
'the incident, it appears Meyer left the police
no choice in their actions. They have a sworn
duty to protect the audience and the high-
profile speaker present in the room. Such
behavior in the Capitol or in Washington,

UPD chief should resign after incident
Such brutality as conducted by the campus
police at the Kerry event shows that UPD
Chief Linda Stump is either culpable for their
behavior because she ordered or gave permis-
sion for the excessive force, or her officers are
out of control.
She should take responsibility for her
staff's behavior, apologize to the student and
the community and resign. Even conserva-
tive talk-show hosts are mocking her police
department's behavior and calling it deplor-
able. She should be ashamed.
Stephen Dear
Chapel Hill, N.C.

More people Tasered than Meyer
In light of the release of the police report,
I hope people will realize that the Meyer
Tasering incident was not about First-
Amendment rights. To say a person who ask
ed a question even though the allotted ques-
tion-and-answer time was over, who saw it fit
that his questions were more important than
the people ahead of him, and was able to yell
questions at Kerry for a good bit of time before
he said blowjobb" was somehow robbed of his
First-Amendment rights is ridiculous.
The police did not remove him for being
too controversial or for asking the "tough
questions" but for being a belligerent, petu-
lant kid who had complete disregard for the
established etiquette of a forum. He was dis-
ruptive, and it became dear after watching the
video that he didn't really want answers from
Kerry, just to stump him. Tasering him was not
warranted, but removing him was. If people
really want to be outraged about Tasering,
they should read about the pregnant woman
who was Tasered in her belly in Gainesville
recently.

Protests continue Wednesday


By ALEX TIEGEN

Alligator Staff Writers

Though there were fewer participants
Wednesday, a group of about 70 UF students
marched through the drizzling rain to pro-


On


On Wednesday, the crowd marched from
the Plaza of the Americas to UPD.


Rikki Seguin, a UF freshman, said she
test the Monday arrest and Tasering of UF was protesting the use of violence by UPD
student Andrew Meyer. officers.


Wednesday's protest was a continua-
tion a similar event Tuesday afternoon,
whne about 300 students marched to the
University Police Department. Later, about
100 went to Emerson Alumni Hall.


She held a cardboard sign that read,
"Have you seen my free speech?"
"I feel like if we protest for several days
until we get what we want, it shows solidar-
ity," Seguin said.


UPD Lt. Stacy Ettel met the protesters at
the door of the police station and handed
out citizen complaint forms.
Ettel said he didn't know how many com-
plaints UPD received Tuesday, but he added
most of them had been e-mailed. He said
that by the end of the day, the department's
phone lines were full.
UPD has discussed Meyer's arrests with
several students, although it has not con-
ducted a formal meeting with them.
Benjamin Dictor, a UF political science ju-
nior who had a prominent role in Tuesday's
protest, said he was happy students were
still turning up the day after a large protest.
The rain probably discouraged more stu-
dents from joining the march, he said.
He added that Tuesday's protest brought
the national attention protesters had hoped
for.
Sitting outside UPD, rain flecked some
students' faces as they filled out complaint
forms and waited to turn them into the UPD
office.
Protesters later grouped in the parking
lot and debated what they should do next.
Some students said they felt the protest
was not achieving enough.
One student suggested filing a formal
complaint as a group to UPD later that
night, while another suggested protesting
the security policies of Accent, Student
Government's speakers bureau. The idea
elicited a few yells of agreement.
Dictor and others told waiting students
not to let the protest die after two days.
"Reprimanding is not enough for these
officers," Dictor said. "We've all been hurt
by this."


ABOVE: People gather at noon Wednesday on the Plaza of the Americas and talk during a protest against the University Police
Department's arrest and Tasering of UF student Andrew Meyer.
RIGHT: Two students listen to discussion of Meyer during Wednesday's protest. Meyer, a telecommunication senior, was released

Crist appoints education adviser


By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

Following months of head-
butting over budget cuts with
the Florida Board of Governors
and the state Legislature, Gov.
Charlie Crist has brought in a
middleman.
Crist recently appointed
Dean Colson as his Special
Adviser for Higher Education.
Colson, a 55-year-old Miami
lawyer, political adviser and
University of Miami trustee,
will be a liaison between Crist
and the board and Legislature,
according to a press release from
the Governor's Office.
Colson will join the Board of
Governors, the State University
System's highest governing
body, at its meeting Sept. 27,
according to a press release from
the board.
Carolyn Roberts, the board's


chairwoman, said in the board's
release that Colson's appoint-
ment is "outstanding news for
all of us who are dedicated to
higher education excellence."
During a July meeting, the
board announced a 5 percent
statewide
tuition hike,
despite the
fact that Crist
had already
I vetoed it.
Because
Sof a tax
Colson deficit, Crist
proposed
public-university funding cuts
of about $600 per student in
September, pending approval of
the Legislature.
Bill Edmonds, the board's
spokesman, said in an interview
Sept. 10 that the board would
appeal to the Legislature for a
compromise on Crist's recom-
mended cuts.


But the board and Legislature
are not always on the same
page.
The board joined former
Florida Sen. Bob Graham's law-
suit against the Legislature to
fight for tuition-setting powers
at the July meeting.
The Tuition Differential
Program was created to raise
money to hire more faculty and
advisers, and Crist approved it
in June. The program will incre-
mentally raise tuition 40 percent
over four years.
Edmonds called the pro-
gram's approval a great political
achievement for state universi-
ties, but said Crist's proposed
cuts could leave universities
right where they started.
"We look forward to a
dialogue with Dean Colson
and Governor Crist on ways we
can make our State University
System stronger," Roberts said
in the board's release.


New RTS station opens


By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Contributing Writer

She said it was cleaner and
neater.
Shanita Ford, an SFCC sopho-
more, was one of many patrons at
the new Regional Transport System
bus station Wednesday. While there
are improvements, Ford said the lo-
cation of the new RTS Downtown
Station, 700 SE Third St., makes
some buses late because of the new
routes.
RTS held a grand opening
Tuesday for the new 100,000 square
foot station, which includes a
canopy, public restrooms and an
updated ticket booth.
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan said
at the event, "When I was first
elected in 1996, there was about 1.5
million people per year using the
Gainesville RTS."


Now, RTS has nine million peo-
ple use its transportation annually,
Hanrahan said.
Hanrahan said since the institu-
tion of using the Gator 1 Card as a
bus pass in 1997 and 1998, the vast
majority of the RTS riders have
been students.
As the demand for transporta-
tion and buses
Around increased in
Gainesville the Downtown
Plaza, safety
became an issue
for the RTS riders because double-
parked buses blocked traffic.
"We outgrew the Downtown
Plaza, and it became necessary to
find a new location," said Public
Works Director Teresa Scott.
The total cost to create the sta-
tion was about $1.7 million. It was
built -by Scherer Construction &
Engineering of North Florida.

Experts look at Simpson case


* SIMPSON HAS POSTED
BAIL.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LAS VEGAS (AP) In a
scene of legal deja vu, a grayer,
heavier O.J. Simpson stood
handcuffed in court Wednesday
to face charges that could put
- him behind bars for life. The
prosecutor who failed to get
him a dozen years ago was
there to watch, and news cam-
eras tracked his every move as
if they were covering a slow-
speed chase.
But as Simpson made his
$125,000 bail on charges includ-
ing kidnapping and armed
robbery, legal experts were
questioning- Could a former
football star who beat a double-
murder rap really do hard time
for a crime that sounds like a
bad movie?
Police have laid out a case
that makes Simpson the leader


in an armed holdup of sports
memorabilia collectors, and
they arrested a fifth suspect in
the case Wednesday. Some of
the facts including a curious
recording of the confrontation
- don't seem so dear-cut.
Legal ex-
National perts say that
News issues such as
who had right-
ful ownership
of the goods and the reputation
of witnesses in the sometimes
less-than-reputable world of
memorabilia trading could
cloud the prosecution's case.
Simpson has insisted he was
merely retrieving items that
were stolen fromihim earlier.
Alfred Beardsley, one of
the collectors who says he
was robbed at gunpoint by
Simpson and several other
men, told NBC's "Today Show"
before Simpson's hearing that
he didn't think an audiotape
made at the scene was accurate.
Beardsley was arrested on a pa-


role violation Wednesday.
The other victim, Bruce
Fromong, was recovering from
a heart attack in a Los Angeles
hospital. The man who ar-
ranged the meeting between
Simpson and the two collec-
tors, Tom Riccio, has a criminal
record.
"Thecredibilityofthecohorts
in the enterprise would be a key
issue at trial," said University of
Southern California law profes-
sor Jody Armour.
Dennis Turner, a professor at
the University of Dayton School
of Law, agreed. "This is a pretty
shady world and pretty shady
characters dealing with each
other in a pretty shady way."
A key difference with the
1995 murder trial is that there
are plenty of witnesses this time
who place Simpson at the scene,
including hotel video surveil-
lance. Simpson has made no
secret he went to the hotel room
intending to take the memora-
bilia.

Gator releases goals


By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Alligator Writer
dculclasure@alligator.org

Student Government's Gator
Party has released its platform,
which includes goals of creating a
sustainability minor and rework-
ing UF's E-Learning System.
Yooni Yi, Gator Party presi-
dent, said the platform released
Tuesday focuses on meeting the
needs of the largest, most diverse
group of students possible.
"My platform reaches out to
the student body," Yi said. "We're
covering what they need and
what they really want out of their
Student Government."
Yi said the Gator Party has both
short-term and long-term goals.
Party objectives that could be
implemented quickly include in-
tegrating the E-Learning System
with UF WebMail, she said.
E-Learning is confusing, Yi said,
and herparty wants students to be
able to have forwarded e-mail re-
minders for events, deadlines and
mail featured in the system.
Other short-term goals include
extending library hours during
exam week and implementing


metered parking at the Southwest
Recreation Center.
Metered parking would allow
students without decals to use the
facility during decal hours, she
said.
-Y For the long
term, one of
Gator's plans
is to create a
sustainability
minor.
Yi said the
sustainabil-
' ity minor would
give students an
avenue to learn and accomplish
more in that field.
"It's being sustainable in a way
because you are building leaders in
these concepts," she said.
Yi said she thinks these goals
can be accomplished and paid
for within one year by improving
communication with UF's admin-
istration.
"I think the administration is
really willing to work with stu-
dents," Yi said. "There's a lack of
communication, but once they real-
ize students are interested, I think
they would want to work and find
a way to make things happen."


Report says Meyer was

wrote in the report.
Then came the struggle.
According to the report,
police were only able to hand-
cuff Meyer's right hand as he
thrashed about, and Sgt. Eddie
King gave the order to Taser his
left shoulder to cuff that hand.
Mallo complied.
At a press conference
Tuesday, UF President Bernie
Machen announced that King
and Mallo were suspended
with pay.
According to the report,
several officers were bruised,
but no one needed medical at-
tention.
King's sunglasses were
destroyed and his hat was
knocked off, according to King.
The, report lists Meyer's fist
as his weapon.
After Meyer was arrested,
Mallo wrote that he was
"laughing and being light-
hearted" when cameras were


out of sight.
The report said Meyer asked
if cameras would be at the jail.
Mallo wrote that on the way
to jail, Meyer told police, "I
am not mad at you guys, you
didn't do, anything wrong, you
were just doing your job."
Meyer's lawyer, Robert
Griscti, said Monday's incident
was not a planned stunt.

FDLE plans to use video footage to identify witnesses close to officers


FDLE, from page 1

ably be made in about two weeks,
he said.
Mann said the FDLE will review
the evidence more slowly than the
officers at the Kerry speech had time
to do on Monday.


If necessary, a trial date will be
scheduled after the review, he said.
"We'll talk to people with specific
knowledge of the case, not just what
they've seen on TV," Mann said.
"There's a big difference."
He said he couldn't estimate how
long the investigation will take. The
office hasn't even received a com-


plete case report, he added.
Gogerty said FDLE will use vid-
eos to identify witnesses who were
dose to the officers and Meyer for
interviews.
She said FDLE will use the foot-
age to review Monday's events, but
it will be intently scrutinized.
Consideration of the location of


the camera, where the tape begins
and where it ends are crucial to the
investigation, she said. Different
angles can tell different stories.
Gogerty said investigations are
part of FDLE's normal responsibili-
ties.
Any time an officer is involved in
a shooting, regardless of the kind of


gun, FDLE gets involved, she said.
Gogerty estimated there are
usually more than 20 investigations
done per year.
The investigation into Monday's
Tasering will utilize four of the six
FDLE officers based in Gainesville,
she said, which is an average num-
ber.

and larger-than-life wasted rockers.
The realities today are that smok-
ing is against the law inside the
city's public buildings and hopeful


rock- stars have to be on their best
behavior to impress the record labels
that often scout bands at
miscellaneous shows.
Gainesville band Debutaunts got
its taste of the modem New York
rock scene Sept. 14 when it played


an exclusive show for Universal
Records and other record labels.
"If anything, the music scene in
New York has become more com-
mercial," bassist Eric Bloomquist
said.
When Debutaunts were last in-


pljjiljil. l..i. 1J1 I au n l. i"I
The Debutaunts play a show at Midway in the Lower East Side of Manhattan for the Universal Records
label showcase. The Gainesville band played in front of seven record labels.


terviewed by the Avenue in April, it
was a five-piece band preparing to
release its first EP.
Five short months later, it found
itself in a place bands spend years
trying to reach: a Lower East Side
rock dub, playing a special show for
seven major record labels.
"It is a whole different vibe play-
ing for record label executives,"
guitarist Jonathan Shupert said.
"Everything has to be perfect."
On June 8, Debutaunts trav-
eled to the Big Apple to meet with
Universal Records representative
Matt Marooney. Afterward, the
band was invited to play Universals
Record's official showcase.
Realizing
what a unique opportunity the
showcase would be for the band,
the guys immediately decided to
play it.
"We are serious about music, and
we are shopping for a label," front-
man Jazek Creacy said. "We could
not pass up the chance to play for so
many of them."
Summer vacation was spent
practicing, writing new music and
filling the gap made by losing a
band mate.
Earlier in the summer, the band's
fifth member, Mats Peterson, parted
ways with the band, taking with
him the sound of his baby grand
piano.-
"Losing a member forces ev-
eryone to pick up their heels and
perfect what they are doing, because
the sound changes when you lose an
instrument," Creacy said. "But in all


honestly, I think it has turned out
better. The sound is more even
and less cluttered."
Record label executives must
have agreed because at the show-
case, Debutaunts was showered
with business cards from record
executives.
"They were really good,"
Marooney said.
For Debutaunts, music is its main
priority. Every show it plays and ev-
ery rehearsal it runs through is done
with perfection in mind.
"Many bands just have music
as a hobby, and the ones who take
music seriously often don't have the
drive and determination to pursue
a major label," Creacy said. "We've
always been the kind of band that
is perfectionist about what we do,
which sets us aside."
The hard work paid off with the
success of its concert Friday.
"The show was a great learning
experience as well as an opportunity
for us to show our name out there,"
drummer Stephen Safitana said. "I
think we are more on their radar
now."
But the band is not going to give
itself away to the first label it finds.
For now, the band members are
considering their options and con-
tinuing to write and record music in
their own record studio in prepara-
tion of their fall tour.
"Now we are at a place where we
can accomplish what we want with
the people we have and the way we
perform," Creacy said. "We are not
missing any elements."


90 minutes, one joke


"Mr. Woodcock" is a textbook
example of the preview showing all
the funny parts of a movie. After an
hour and a half, I can safely say there
was only one scene not revealed in
the previews worthy of a laugh.
That's it. Only one. The rest of the
film plods along with little enthusi-
asm and even fewer laughs.
"Mr. Woodcock" is the kind
of movie that was written on the
back of a bar napkin during a high
school reunion. It feeds the desire
to "get back" at previous authority
figures who have wronged us in the
past. The story is about John Farley
(played by Seann William Scott, or as
he's know to our generation, Stifler
from "American Pie"), a successful
self-help writer who is invited to
receive an award in his hometown.
When he gets back, he discovers
that his mom, the always wonderful
Susan Sarandon, is dating his old
gym teacher, Mr. Woodcock (Billy
Bob Thorton).
This plot has all the makings of a
short film or one episode of a sitcom.
It does not work for a feature-length
film. The jokes are spread too far
apart and the schmaltzy morals
toward the end pitifully diminish
what little comic value there was to
begin with. The best/funniest part


of the film
is when Mr.
Woodcock
torments
the chil-
dren in
his class.
Thorton
delivers
his lines in





- 14TL1111


a perfect
deadpan that is difficult not to laugh
at. However, this sequence only lasts
about five minutes and is at the very
beginning of the film. Really, you
could walk out of the theater after
10 minutes and not regret leaving
early.
Perhaps the most pointless part
of this pointless movie was the love
interest, Tracy, played by Melissa
Sagemiller. Why is she even in this
movie? She adds no depth to the
primary characters, no development
to the plot and, the worst sin of all,
no comedy to a comedy.
If, at the end of the day, you're
looking for a bland, uninteresting,
uninspired movie about getting
even with your gym teacher, then
see "Mr. Woodcock." But then again,
if this is what you're looking for in a
movie, perhaps you need to get out
more.

Space rock 'n' roll


Friday's show bids farewell

LANE NIESET I AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER


When asked to describe what
genre of music the band Binary
Forest Faux Pas fits into, the mem-
bers paused for a second before jok-
ingly naming, the genres "science


rock" and "space rock."
Singer and guitarist Greg
Pishko, 23, simply responded, "I
guess we're rock music."
The Gainesville band is play-


to drummer
ing their last show with drummer
Chuck Smyth at 8 p.m. Friday at the
Downtown Community Plaza.
The show is free and also will
feature musical acts Holopaw and
Michael Holland.
"It is a reformation of the band,"


Laura Heald/Alligator
Binary Forest Faux Pas plays a show Tuesday night at The Atlantic. Drummer Chuck Smyth's last perfor-
mance will be at their free show downtown on Friday.

Smyth, 28, said.
Binary Forest Faux Pas was his
side project, but he is leaving to fo-
cus on his other band, the Cadets.

Expanding horizons
For Friday's show, Binary Forest
Faux Pas added two additional
members: Amber Zappia, 18, who
plays hand drums and secondary
percussion, and Andrew Simler, 19,
who sings backup vocals and plays
guitar.
"Hopefully since we have a
couple more people, we will be able
to do some more intricate things,"
Pishko said. "There is an extra
element you can't quite put your
finger on, and I think the second-
ary percussion will bring out that
world-music feel to the general
rock sound."
The band will feature an array
of instruments in its set not found
on its album, including a cowbell,
tambourine and doumbek, a type
of hand drum.
"This is a chance for people to
see some good rock 'n' roll music
that is slightly unique but still has
quite a few roots in the classic rock
style that people enjoy," Pishko
said.
Pishko started Binary Forest
Faux Pas almost a year ago to make
and play music with his friends.
"I created the name to criticize
digital formats and how far people
will go to computerize the world to
make nature digital," he said.


The band normally plays shows
in Gainesville, but it has played a
few acoustic sets in South Florida,
where a majority of its members
are from.

Local love
They released their first album in
April, titled "All I See is Numbers,"
on. School Glue Records, a record
label Pishko runs out of his house.
Another musician who was
friends with the band created the
name and it stuck, Pishko said.
"The label is a collective of peo-
ple who are traded off musically be-
tween the different bands," he said.
His house, dubbed "the Manor"
by local musicians who have come
and gone over the years, is a com-
mon practice space and where most
of the recording takes place.
"Everybody here is just very ac-
tive in playing music on their own
time and with other bands," Pishko
said. "The music won't end because
we are all kind of part of this col-
lective."
School Glue Records is com-
posed of seven bands: five local
bands, a band from Boston and a
band from Ormond Beach.
The label is a side project for
Pishko while he completes his
Ph.D. in mechanical engineering
at UF.
"It is pretty much about friends
at this time in our lives doing
something that we love together,"
he said.

Forget self-control; get a DCB


CEDRIC HARRIS I
CONTRIBUTING SEX COLUMNIST
Most nights I go out, I need a DCB.
A DCB, or a "designated cock blocker," is
someone who keeps an eye on people like me
who sometimes wake up in the morning hoping
they didn't hook up with that random, sort-of-
sketchy, somewhat homely person from the bar
last night, only to roll over and find said person.
0 For example, one morning after too many
Southern Comfort and limes, I awoke with a sore
head, an odd cut on my leg and a weird lump in
the bed next to me. I ran to the living room and
scanned for my roommates to make sure there
wouldn't be any witnesses.
I rushed to awaken the lump and used some
lame excuse for an immediate evacuation. As I
shoved the lump through the door, lo and be-
hold, -my roommate was standing right in the
kitchen. Her expression was confused at first,
but she 'slowly gave me the sliest of smiles. At
that moment, I knew I'd become a punch line for
the next month.
The solution to such a predicament is easy:
prevention. We learned this concept in eighth-


grade health class through contraception and
proper hand-washing techniques, but they forgot
the important suggestion of a DCB.
Like a designated driver, the DCB is ap-
pointed at the beginning of the night. Unlike the
designated driver, the DCB can still drink.
A drunken DCB might even be better at his
job because drunks are usually blunt and can
definitely end a mood.
Don't pick just anyone for this esteemed posi-
tion, though. Your average cock block won't do
- their unintentional cock blocking skills can't
be. controlled.
All your friend has to do is make sure you
don't let just anyone in your pants including
the ex you call after too much tequila.
As a result, although you may not feel like a
million bucks in the morning, at least you don't
have to worry about having an unwelcome guest
next to you.
The next time you're preparing for a forgetful
night out, don't bother with chastity belts or self-
control. Rely on a DCB to ensure you have all the
fun without ary unwanted lumps in the bed.

New Foos shows


range of styles


K


ADRIAN RUHI)
AVENUE WRITER

Ten years after the de-
finitive "The Colour and
The Shape," the Foo Fighters
reconvene with "Colour"
producer Gil Norton. The
result isn't- quite- another
classic, but 'Echoes Silence,
Patience and Grace," releas-
ing Tuesday, will satisfy Foo
fans.
Lead man Dave Grohl
isn't usually one to experi-
ment, but "Echoes" manages
to blend the Foos' typical
post-grunge alt-rock sound
with small influxes of inno-
vation, no doubt inspired by
the 2006 acoustic tour.


The
album is 5
punctu-
ated by
Grohl's
heartfelt
lyrics I
a n d
impressive guitar playing.
Songs span a wide range of
styles, including bluegrass
instrumental jams, cello-and-
guitar-driven ballads and
big, arena rock.
"Echoes, Silence, Patience
and Grace" definitely has
its highlights, but the Foo
Fighters continues its strug-
gle to make an album as
timeless and memorable as
its decade-old classic.

UF FOOTBALL

Jackson may not start


By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Staff Writer
bjones@alligator.org
UF free safety Kyle Jackson may
have lost his starting spot.
After pulling Jackson during the
first half of the Tennessee game last
week, UF coach Urban Meyer said
Wednesday that he will make a game-
time decision whether to start Jackson
or freshman Major Wright against
Mississippi on Saturday.
"They're both going with the [first
team] right now," Meyer said.
Meyer spoke with Jackson on the
phone Sunday night to voice his sup-
port for the safety despite his strug-
gles.
Jackson told Meyer that he is too
invested to give up.
"I just need to make that extra step
on a tackle," Jackson said. "This week
I'll be out there doing extra tackling
and bringing that extra step. I've been
playing football for too long, and I
know I've got it."
INJURY UPDATE: Meyer said wide re-


ceiver Riley Cooper is probable for
Saturday while offensive lineman
Maurkice Pouncey will be a game-time
decision. Both suffered sprained ankles
against Tennessee.
"Riley (was) gimping around a little
bit today, but we expect him to go,"
Meyer said. "Maurkice is a game-time
decision, I'm told, and I'm hoping it's
going to work out."
"I just need to make that extra
step on a tackle."
Kyle Jackson
UF free safety

If Pouncey is unable to play, Maurice
Hurt is expected to take his spot in the
lineup.
If Cooper can't play, David Nelson
could see more field time.
Meyer said he has been extremely
impressed with Nelson, particularly
as a blocker.
"He just practiced his tail off,"
Meyer said. "Instead of worrying
about things, he's just going out and
going as hard as he can."

Gators could face former Vols' QB Schaeffer


FOOTBALL from page 23


what we're doing we go over our checks," Wallace said.
"He gives mq a look and a signal, and I go with it. He's always
making the right call."
Though Adams said it is the type of injury he will have
to force himself to play through, his potential replacement is
a familiar face for the Gators. The Rebels' backup is former
Tennessee quarterback Brent Schaeffer.
Schaeffer was a highly regarded recruit coming into
Knoxville, but he lost playing time to the Volunteers' current
starter, Erik Ainge, decided to transfer and eventually landed
af Mississippi.
Though Schaeffer has had a less-than notable career with
the Rebels, Orgeron said Schaeffer's attitude has improved,


and he is doing better academically.
But it's going to take a lot more than just a quarterback to
pull the upset against No. 3 UF (3-0,1-0 SEC) on Saturday.
Running back Benjarvus Green-Ellis is the workhorse for
Mississippi (1-2, 0-1 SEC). Whether Adams or Schaeffer starts,
Mississippi won't go anywhere if the senior doesn'tt show up.
Green-Ellis has 384 yards on the ground and one touchdown.'
"When Benjarvus goes, we go,"
Southeastern Orgeron said. "It seems like when teams
Conference stop BenJarvus, our offense kind of shuts
I down a little bit."
After spending a few seasons as SEC cellar dwellers, the
Rebels are excited for a chance at the upset.
"This is definitely the highest-ranked team I've ever played
or that Ole Miss has played for a while," Adams said. "We'll be
ready. It's a once in a lifetime chance to play Florida."


Defenders, goalkeeper bound by close friendships


SOCCER, from page 23

Girls are a lot more emotional. As much
as we don't want to admit it, if I'm hav-
ing a fight with one of my. defenders
and I scream at them during the game,
they're going to take it personally and
freak out."
This sense of camaraderie can be


seen at the beginning of every game.
Huddling at one end of the field, the
members of the defense gather and dis-
cuss their goals. When the spirited con-
versation ends, the girls shout "big and
strong," a rallying cry that has become a
symbol of their unity.
Credited with the creation of these
motivational words, senior Shana
Hudson is the defense's elder leader.

"Yeah, I'll beat the crap out of peo-

The senior pointed out that playing
defense does have its benefits.
"When I'm having a bad day it defi-
nitely helps," she said. "It's always nice
to go in there and knock some people
down."
Perhaps the most notorious bruiser of
all is sophomore Lauren Hyde. In only
her second season, Hyde has already
developed a reputation.
"I am glad she is on my team,"
Hudson said. "That's all I have to say.
She is one of the toughest girls I have
ever played with. She will hurt some-
one."

reserved off the field, but the junior from
Oak Forest, Ml., rejects the idea.
"I don't think you know me very
well," she said. "I'm pretty wild and
loud, on and off the field; I'm the best
dancer on the team, so I get the team

nation and the No. 10-ranked player in terms
of total offense.
The Gators have already made it clear that
their offense is a force to be reckoned with,
having the ability to react to almost any de-
fense and boasting more-weapons than a bad
action movie.
To be fair, the Trojans and Tigers have
talented offenses as well, and LSU boasts
the nation's top defense in two .out of four
categories.
UF, LSU and USC finished last year as Nos.
1, 3 and 4, respectively.
So with all three undefeated and clearly
national contenders, why has the order been
flipped? .
The. Gators deserve more respect than they
are getting.
They should at least get as much as defend-
ing champions have received in the past.
Other than UF, every national champion
since 2002 has gotten first-place votes in the
AP's preseason poll.
Even 2005 champ Texas garnered votes,
and the Longhorns lost quarterback Vince
Young, its leading rusher and passer who
almost single-handedly defeated USC "in the
Rose Bowl.
The Longhorns may not have had as many
question marks on defense as UF had coming
into this year, but they wound up finishing
out of the top-10 with three losses.
They failed to even making the Big-12
Championship Game.
The same fate could befall the Gators, but
at this point they have earned at least a few
No. 1 votes.
I'm not saying that UF is the best team in
the nation right now, but since when does
anything other than losses remove a team
from the top spot?
Until they lose a game, the Gators should
be viewed as the team to beat.
They have the national championship.
trophy, as well as the talent and coaching to
add another one to the trophy case after this
season.
All it takes is one loss to end their chance
to repeat.
But until that happens they shouldn't be
satisfied with No. 3.

SEC FOOTBALL

Former walk-on


QB leads Ole Miss


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

Seth Adams isn't your typical
Southeastern Conference quar-
terback.
He didn't have the Tim
Tebow-type attention coming
out of Holly Springs, Miss.
He never shook hands with
Urban Meyer, Phillip Fulmer or
Steve Spurrier.
But now, the junior college
transfer and former walk-on is
starting for Mississippi.
And his strong play has been
turning heads.,
Through three games,
Adams has thrown for 660 yards
with five touchdowns and two
interceptions.
"It was a weight lifted off
my chest," Adams said of being
named starter. "That was just
another step. Now that I was
the starter, I had to make the
next steps.
"It was a dream to always
play in the SEC. I didn't know
how things would unfold, but
I would stick to my dream.


Playing in the SEC was always
in the back of nm mind, and I felt
that in my heart that I could do
it. I took a chance and took ad-
vantage of the opportunity that
Coach (Ed Orgeron) gave me."
That opportunity almost
came to a temporary half
Saturday when Adams sprained
his right shoulder during -the
fourth quarter of last week's
game at Vanderbilt. However,
Orgeron expects.the quarterback
to play Saturday. After sitting
out most of Tuesday's practice,
Adams reportedly took some
reps Wednesday.
: "He should be fine,"
Orgeron said Wednesday dur-
ing 'the -weekly SEC Coaches'
Teleconference. "He's a very
tough, very dedicated young
mal."
One Rebels player who is
hoping ,for a healthy Adams
is junior wide receiver Mike
Wallace. So far, Wallace has team
highs of 323 receiving yards
and three touchdowns on the
season.

UF deserves more love in polls


Tough defense leads Gators


By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Writer

They don't care about goals. They hardly
ever think about assists.
They are the names hidden in the stat sheet
- the players who have left headlines behind.
They are the Gators defense, five of the UF
soccer team's most unheralded and most im-
portant players.
The Gators have given up a mere four goals
in six regular season games, helping lead UF to
a 4-2 record early on.
Goalkeeper Katie Fraine is at the heart of
the backline. Labeling herself the team's vocal
leader, the redshirt freshman sums it up simply.
"You know what they say," Fraine said.
"Offense may win games, but defense wins
championships."
The adage was dear in 1998, when the
Gators gave up only 17 goals in 27 total games

.en route to winning the program's first and only
national title.
So how does this year's defense stack up?
According to Fraine, just call them the "Wall
of Florida."
"We have a lot of big girls
on our defensive line, and
they're all ready to hit people
and throw them down," she
said. "Even if it's not in the
front page of the media, it
doesn't matter. That's not
Fralne what defense is all about. It's
about winning games."
Fraine said the defense is bound by strong
friendships, a unique and vital factor in this
case.
"With guys, a lot of times it doesn't even
matter if they know each other," Fraine said.
"When girls trust each other, they play better.

U 1986: The No. 13 Gators lose at home to
fourth-ranked Alabama 21-7. UF finished the
season with a 6-5 record.


G ators fans seem pretty ex-
cited that UF is ranked No.
3 in the AP and USA Today
polls, but they shouldn't be.
Instead, they should be angry.
The Gators received seven first-
place votes in the USA Today poll,
just behind LSU's eight and USC's
44, but got zero nods for the top
spot from the AP.
So why aren't the undefeated,
defending national champs with
the unstoppable offense getting
any love?
Honestly, it doesn't really mat-
ter where the Gators are ranked
this week.
They will get their shot at No.
2 LSU in a few weeks, and if they
win they will receive plenty of ac-
colades.
The rankings now won't have
too much of a bearing on UF's
chances of a repeat. If they go
undefeated, they will be playing


N The UF football team is tied for
first in the nation with 25 wins
since the start of the 2005 sea-
son. Texas, USC and LSU also have
25 wins in that span.

Taser use under review By KIM WILMATH Alligator Writer kwilmath@alligator.org The Florida Department of Law Enforcement, known as FDLE, has begun its investigation into the University Police Department's controversial use of a Taser on Monday. FDLE will piece together what really happened, not judge the situation, said Sharon Gogerty, FDLE spokeswoman. Andrew Meyer, a UF telecommunication senior, was Tasered and arrested by UPD officers during a Monday speech by Sen. John Kerry a Democrat representing Massachusetts. Meyer was charged with a third-degree felony for violently resisting arrest and a second-degree misdemeanor for disturbing the peace. He was released from jail Tuesday morning on the condition that he will appear in court when a date is scheduled for his case. The State Attorney's Office will make the final judgment on the criminal charges against Meyer. Spencer Mann, spokesman for the State Attorney's Office, Local said FDLE's investigation News is separate from the state attorney's decision.

Meyer became an Internet and TV celebrity when videos were posted of police Tasering him at a speech by Sen. John Kerry, a Democrat who represents Massachusetts. According to a University Police Department offense report, before Meyer began pelting Kerry with questions on Monday, he turned to a friend and said, "Are you taping this? Do you have this? You ready?" In a loud voice, Meyer said he was "sick of listening to Kerry's crap for the past two hours," and he demanded permission to ask questions, the report states.

Without such action, Bush said, "Our national security professionals will lose critical tools they need to protect our country." "It will be harder to figure out what our enemies are doing to train, recruit and infiltrate operatives into America," the president said during a visit to the super-secret National Security Agency's headquarters. "Without these tools, our country will be much more vulnerable to attack," he said. The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act governs when the government must obtain warrants for eavesdropping from a secret intelligence court. This year's update -approved just before Congress' August break -allows more efficient interceptions of foreign communications. Under the new law, the government can eavesdrop without a court order on communicatfions conducted by a person reasonably believed to be outside the United States, even if an American is on one end of the conversation -so long as that American is not the intended focus or target of the surveillance. In requesting the change, the Bush administration said technological advances in communications had created a dire gap in the ability to collect intelligence on terrorists.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, 3 Thanks in part to protest, Chomp the Vote hits goal 0 THE ORGANIZATION AIMED FOR 1,000 STUDENTS. By DEVIN CULCLASURE Alligator Writer dculclasure@a1ligator.org Tuesday's protest over Andrew Meyer's Tasering offered a chance for Chomp the Vote, Student Government's non-partisan voters drive, to increase its visibility. Frank Bracco, co-director of Chomp the Vote, said he went to protests on Turlington Plaza and Emerson Alumni Hall to find "students who care." "Since these are students who seem to care about issues, they should seem to care about voter registration, too," Bracco said. On Wednesday, Chomp the Vote reached its initial goal of having 1,000 students register to vote or update their voter information for Alachua County, Bracco said., The registrations were a result of the entire semester's efforts. "We're very excited about that, and we're hoping we can keep up that momentum," he said. After a successful premiere in 2004, when Chomp the Vote registered 8,000 voters, the organization practically disappeared for the next two years. Bracco said Chomp the Vote has turned itself around by becoming more visible, adding that the organization is far from its final objective of registering 3,000 to 5,000 students. Because of Student Bracco's appearGOVM____ ance during the protest, Chomp the Vote drew mention on "The Sean Hannity Show," a talk-radio show. Hannity described Chomp the Vote as part of a liberal, left-wing conspiracy protest, Bracco said. Then Chomp the Vote's other codirector, Tyler Antar, called Hannity and explained that the organization was just registering students to vote. Hannity "was excited, so he mentioned Chomp the Vote again," Bracco said with a laugh. "He cleared us of being part of the liberal protest." The staff of about 25 tries to register students on Turlington Plaza at least three days a week. About 20 fraterities and sororities have received voter registration forms, Bracco said. He is also planning to supply the remaining Greek houses with forms, he said. Chomp the Vote will also host socials at the Campus Lodge and Campus Club apartment complexes in mid-October, he said. Attendees can swim, eat free food and register to vote. Bracco said the complexes will host the events for free, but Chomp the Vote will pay for pizza, drinks and fliers. He added that he didn't know the exact cost. "I'm hoping it will draw a lot of students," Bracco said. "It may not' boost registration, but it will definitely boost awareness." ON CAMPUS Law professor's speech centers on Fourth Amendment By KORI FREDERICK Alligator Writer UF law professor Christopher Slobogin painted a dark, Big Brother-esque picture Wednesday of the post-Sept. 11 regulation of government surveillance. His speech, given in honor of Constitution Day, which was earlier this week, focused on his belief that recent surveillance acts are in direct conflict with the Fourth Amendment, which protects against unreasonable search by the government. The speech took place at the Chesterfield Smith Ceremonial Classroom at UF's law school. The Fourth Amendment requires that a warrant with probable cause be signed by a judge before a search can be performed. But with the heightened search for terrorists, the system of checks and balances on the government has become lax, Slobogin said. "These days, it's hard to find a reason to celebrate the Fourth Amendment," Slobogin said. There are four types of surveillance the government uses that the Supreme Court has ruled are not covered by the Fourth Amendment. Slobogin believes these should be regulated by requiring a warrant. Using slides, Slobogin outlined the four types of surveillance he thinks should be covered by the amendment, including communication surveillance. Communication surveillance refers to the seizure of phone numbers and e-mail addresses. This is called envelope information -the content of the conversation itself is still protected. Slobogin said he believes the Fourth Amendment should -play a bigger role in governmental surveillance. "These days, it's hard to find a reason to celebrate the Fourth Amendment." Christopher Slobogin UF law professor "The government should have to provide a justification for surveillance that's proportionate to the intrusion involved," he said. "As far as the Constitution is concerned, there is virtually no limit on what the government can do outside of intercepting domestic communication." Not only has increased surveillance been unsuccessful, but cameras have only reduced crime 6 percent and have done nothing to reduce violent crime, Slobogin said. Slobogin said the government has held 70 people, most of Middle Eastern descent, for more than a year but has only charged nine and convicted four. It has interviewed 15,000 people and convicted 3,000, mostly of minor surveillance crimes, he said. "Sure a lot of Americans will say, 'I've got nothing to hide,' he said. "But are you comfortable with the government tracking you?" P T / N Ag'

4, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2007 LOCAL Bars get fire-safety training By KATIE GALLAGHER historical fires had caused to public places. A Alligator Contributing Writer video of a 2003 nightclub fire in Rhode Island Local bar and nightclub staff members gathered at Rue Bar on Wednesday night for mandatory fire-safety training with Gainesville Fire Rescue. The 52 representatives who completed the program Operation Safe Club received badges certifying them as crowd managers. GFR will require every bar and nightclub to have at least one crowd manager with a badge present during its night inspections. Deputy Fire Chief Tim Hayes said the badge will show the person is trained in evacuation plans and 911 calls, making inspections easier. Nine employees of GFR's Risk Reduction Bureau were at the meeting. "This is our whole division right here tonight," he said. "We don't have enough people to come down here every night." Fire investigator Sandy Ellison said the night inspections are made two to three times a month. With 49 bars and nightclubs to visit in Gainesville, he said, they end up hitting each one at least twice a year. Investigators look for blocked exits, overcrowding and burnt-out exit lights, Ellison said. The training at Rue Bar covered not only fire safety and prevention, but also the damage was shown. "You know where the manager of this club is right now?" Hayes asked the crowd during the video. "He's in jail." Jordan Cuffe, a manager at Rue Bar, said he didn't mind the training. "Most people don't even know the legal capacity of their building," he said. "That's why we're here, to learn how to run a safe establishment." Detron Colson Bar One representative Detron Colson, a representative of Bar One, said he felt there was no such thing as having too much information. "That's why we're here, to learn how to run a safe establishment," he said. GFR spokeswoman Laura Koppel said firesafety training has always been mandatory, but it has never been offered by the fire department before. "We're a resource for you guys," Hayes said at the event. "We don't want you to hate to see us coming. Both Hayes and Koppel said that another training session will be held at a later date. Broward complex's guest policies could see changes E ONLY GATOR I HOLDERS MAY USE THE FACILITIES. By CHRISTINE AMARO Alligator Contributing Writer On the glass window at the entrance of the Broward Outdoor Recreation Complex, bold letters give a warning. "Only University of Florida students, faculty, staff or their spouses may use the Broward Outdoor Recreation Complex. Guests are not allowed."

The complex, off Museum Road directly across from Beaty Towers, is constantly occupied, offering a roller hockey rink, a state park, equipment check-out and basketball, volleyball and.tennis courts. Currently, only Gator 1 cardholders are allowed to use the facilities, primarily because overcrowding in the relatively new complex has beena concern, Bowles said. However, guests are allowed to use some of the campus recreation facilities. According to the UF's Recreation and Fitness Center policies, all students, faculty and staff members are limited to two guests per day. Guests must be 18 or older, and each guest is limited to using each building once a semester. The guests are permitted to use the Southwest Recreation Center and the Student On Recreation & Fitness Campus Center, also known as the Racquet Club, but are not allowed to use the Broward Outdoor Recreation Complex.

"Sometimes faculty members aren't aware issues like this exist because they aren't students." Lee said the guest issue at the Broward complex is the first thing she's going to discuss with the board this month, and it will be addressed by October. "When I bring it up, they'll talk about the pros and cons, what they can and can't do and decide when to have the complex available to guests." she said. "They'll look at the numbers and either have the complex available to guests at certain times or make it available all the time if overcrowding isn't an issue," she said. Another reason why only Gator 1 cardholders are allowed to use the Broward facilities is to ensure that the people using the recreational center are the ones who have paid for the activities and services provided, Bowles said.

6, ALLIGATOR E THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2007 Editorial Later, Gator Dull platform lacks depth, new ideas onsidering all that's happened this week -Andrew Meyer, Tasers, UPD, worldwide'news coverage and so on -everything else just seems boring in comparison. Take, for instance, the Gator Party platform. Its Tuesday release was a little overshadowed by what has been dubbed "Tasergate," but we got around to it. But there's not much to report. It's safe to say this is one of the most boring platforms we've seen in a while. One of the platform's points is to "oppose budget cuts in the State University System." This just begs the question: What Student Government party in its right mind would support those budget cuts? Who'd vote for those people? We can't help but imagine Gator just tacked this onto the end of its platform to take up space. One idea we thought had potential went sour as soon as we started asking questions. Gator wants to institute a "Faculty/Student Discount Day," claiming it would give college students a break while providing a boost to the Gainesville economy. The problem here? Gator said it would probably only be at the UF Bookstore once a semester, to start. So can Gator fill us in on the boosting-the-economy part? If the party could have this at the mall, Target or grocery stores once a month, we'd listen. Metered parking at Southwest Recreation Center is a nice idea, but once again, the logic behind it is flawed. Parking meters, by nature, require people to meter them. Unless these meters require about 20 quarters an hour, UF probably can't afford to hire more parking enforcement officers for this lot. Gator prides itself on "tangible" goals -it ran with the same idea in the spring -but maybe it should consider some further-reaching, better thought-out ideas. Tainted Paint A n anonymous email sent to the Alligator around 4 a.m. Wednesday contained two photographs of two people clad in Guy Fawkes masks -most of us would recognize them from the movie "V for Vendetta." The two people may have been -the ones who defaced the portion of the 34th Street Wall that was painted in honor of Lt. Corey Dahlem, who died in the spring the morning after the Gators basketball team won the national championship. He was hit by a drunken driver. It was horribly tasteless to paint "Don't Tase me, bro" all over his memorial. An officer who died while serving this community in what should have been one of its proudest moments does not deserve such terrible treatment. A few bad cops shouldn't spoil the bunch. Plus, Dahlem was an officer with the Gainesville Police Department, not the University Police Department, which is the department that sparked all the Taser controversy -no pun intended. We hope the offending vandals remain anonymous, because mutilating a memorial to anyone is nothing to be proud of. a l l h indeed nt florida aligator Jessica Holland OPINIONS EDITOR Jessica Miller Leigh Shapiro EDITORIAL BOARD The Aigator encourages comments fromreaders.

As fun as it would be to tackle this obviously worthy (or not) issue, I'm sick of it. So, did anyone hear that the horizontal happy face celebrated its 25th birthday? I'm so excited. I even baked the beloved "emoticon" -apparently that's the name experts gave the happy face -a rounded Funfetti cake, complete with yellow icing, black icing for the eyes and black licorice for the mouth. Actually I didn't, but wouldn't that have been cute? But something is missing. When the horizontal happy face first appeared, it had a nose. But that got lost over time in our hurry to type as fast as humanly possible. We need to bring back this facial feature. If I were a horizontal happy face, I would want a nose. It's sad our society is so fast-paced we don't even have time for a nose. It's simple: Add the hyphen. For the good of humanity, add the hyphen. I'm not just rambling about horizontal happy faces. It was an important contribution to society. How else would we electronically express our immense happiness, make weak attempts to flirt, try to salvage what's left of awkward conversations and end sentences when we don't feel like using periods? Yes, the horizontal happy face surely bettered online conversational skills. But the point of this whole bit is we can't even find time for a nose anymore. For some reason it really struck me: Even I don't include the nose. Am I really that busy? I barely make time to call my own family anymore. I love my family, but it's, tough to realize I have to actually plan ahead to call them. And I definitely don't cook. I know how, but I've found myself looking for organic microwaveable dinners, rationalizing they are the same as cooking a meal. Trust me -they weren't. I Stephanie thought I was eating space food. Rosenberg Eating while sitting down is letters@alligator.org a luxury, too. If I eat standing; I'm ready to bolt out the door at a moment's notice. I might bolt hungry, but at least I'll be able to bolt. Most disturbing of all, I relish simple staring time. You know, the time of day when you sit -if you're lucky, lie down -and stare. That's right, I appreciate time when I vegetate while staring at a blank wall in my room. I'm not the busiest person in the world. I'm just your average student, but I'm sure we all feel overwhelmed by life at times. But like AIM, we've adapted to no noses and no time. There are people with real problems, real worries and real responsibilities. But we all have those. Whether ours are important is subjective, but that's not for anyone else to judge. We need to take time for ourselves sometimes. We need to control our lives instead of being swept up in a busy current of eating microwaveable food, penciling in appointments and eating while standing.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 20,2007 U ALLIGATOR, 7 Letters to the Editor Defacing memorial crossed line To the individuals who defaced the memorial to Lt. Corey Dahlem on the 34th Street Wall: Regardless of what you may believe about the University Police Department's actions, you have crossed the line. By tagging the now infamous "Don't Tase me, bro!" over a memorial to a dedicated and upstanding officer, you covered up the most visible mark of an officer who exemplified how to protect and serve.

Casey Peterson 2LS Taser incident not a free-speech issue I was present at Meyer's incident and have to say that the police were 100 percent right in their actions. He was acting extremely aggressive and being very loud and disruptive, growing angry right from the beginning. He seemed to be almost provoking the officers. This was not in any way an issue of free speech. Meyer was not Tasered because of anything that he said. He was Tasered because he was violently resisting arrest. Contrary to rumors, he was not handcuffed while being Tasered. He was Tasered so he could be handcuffed. He was also given repeated warnings that if he did not calm down and comply with the officers, he would be Tasered. I was nervous during the incident, not knowing whether Meyer might be armed. He was acting very aggressively, and in today's post-Sept. 11 world, we cannot simply assume someone is unarmed, especially in that situation. The auditorium was very full and has few exits. The officers were only trying to protect the people in that auditorium, and as one of them, I am thankful. Erin Decker 3LS Police prevented possible harm In regards to the Tasering incident on campus during the Kerry forum, the UPD officers acted appropriately in the handling of Meyer. Students and faculty quick to cry out that this was an injustice need to objectively look at this situation and realize Meyer caused the incident, not the police. As a former Senate page, I used to work close to senators, including Kerry. Meyer's behavior was unprofessional, disrespectful and a stain on UF's reputation. It is impossible to have an intellectual discussion when someone behaves the way Meyer chose to. .After viewing the various video angles of 'the incident, it appears Meyer left the police no choice in their actions. They have a sworn duty to protect the audience and the highprofile speaker present in the room. Such behavior in the Capitol or in Washington, D.C., would have elicited a much stronger response. UF President Bernie Machen should not have to deal with media inquiries relating to a student's poor judgment. UPD should not be decried for dealing with this situation appropriately. Rafael Yaniz 1BA UPD chief should resign after incident Such brutality as conducted by the campus police at the Kerry event shows that UPD Chief Linda Stump is either culpable for their behavior because she ordered or gave permission for the excessive force, or her officers are out of control. She should take responsibility for her staff's behavior, apologize to the student and the community and resign. Even conservative talk-show hosts are mocking her police department's behavior and calling it deplorable. She should be ashamed. Stephen Dear Chapel Hill, N.C. More people Tasered than Meyer In light of the release of the police report, I hope people will realize that the Meyer Tasering incident was not about FirstAmendment rights. To say a person who ask ed a question even though the allotted question-and-answer time was over, who saw it fit that his questions were more important than the people ahead of him, and was able to yell questions at Kerry for a good bit of time before he said "blowjob" was somehow robbed of his First-Amendment rights is ridiculous. The police did not remove him for being too controversial or for asking the "tough questions" but for being a belligerent, petulant kid who had complete disregard for the established etiquette of a forum. He was disruptive, and it became clear after watching the video that he didn't really want answers from Kerry, just to stump him. Tasering him was not warranted, but removing him was. If people really want to be outraged about Taserng, they should read about the pregnant woman who was Tasered in her belly in Gainesville recently.

8, ALLIGATOR 0 THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2007 Marc ing On Protests continue Wednesday By ALEX TIEGEN and ILEANA MORALES Alligator Staff Writers Though there were fewer particpants Wednesday, a group of about 70 UF students marched through the drizzling rain to protest the Monday arrest and Tasering of UF student Andrew Meyer. Wednesday's protest was a continuation a similar event Tuesday afternoon, whne about 300 students marched to the University Police Department. Later, about 100 went to Emerson Alumni Hall. On Wednesday, the crowd marched from the Plaza of the Americas to UPD. Rikki Seguin, a UF freshman, said she was protesting the use of violence by UPD officers. She held a cardboard sign that read, "Have you seen my free speech?" "I feel like if we protest for several days until we get what we want, it shows solidarity," Seguin said. UPD Lt. Stacy Ettel met the protesters at the door of the police station and handed out citizen complaint forms. Ettel said he didn't know how many complaints UPD received Tuesday, but he added most of them had been e-mailed. He said that by the end of the day, the department's phone lines were full. UPD has discussed Meyer's arrests with several students, although it has not conducted a formal meeting with them. Benjamin Dictor, a UF political science junior who had a prominent role in Tuesday's protest, said he was happy students were still turning up the day after a large protest. The rain probably discouraged more students from joining the march, he said. He added that Tuesday's protest brought the national attention protesters had hoped for. -Sitting outside UPD, rain flecked some students' faces as they filled out complaint forms and waited to turn them into the UIPD office. Protesters later grouped in the parking lot and debated what they should do next. Some students said they felt the protest was not achieving enough. One student suggested filing a formal complaint as a group to UPD later that night, while another suggested protesting the security policies of Accent, Student Government's speakers bureau. The idea elicited a few yells of agreement. Dictor and others told waiting students not to let the protest die after two days. "Reprimanding is not enough for these officers," Dictor said. "We've all been hurt by this."

RIGHT: Two students listen to discussion of Meyer during Wednesday's protest. Meyer, a telecommunication senior, was released from jail Tuesday. ON CAMPUS Crist appoints education adviser By KIM WILMATH Alligator Writer kwirmath@auigator.org Following months of headbutting over budget cuts with the Florida Board of Governors and the state Legislature, Gov. Charlie Crist has brought in a middleman. Crist recently appointed Dean Colson as his Special Adviser for Higher Education. Colson, a 55-year-old Miami lawyer, political adviser and University of Miami trustee, will be a liaison between Crist and the board and Legislature, according to a press release from the Governor's Office. Colson will join the Board of Governors, the State lUniversity System's highest governing body, at its meeting Sept. 27, according to a press release from the board. Carolyn Roberts, the board's chairwoman, said in the board's release that Colson's appointment is "outstanding news for all of us who are dedicated to higher education excellence." During a July meeting, the board announced a 5 percent statewide tuition hike, despite the fact that Crist had already vetoed it. of a tax Colson deficit, Crist proposed public-university funding cuts of about $600 per student in September, pending approval of the Legislature. Bill Edmonds, the board's spokesman, said in an interview Sept. 10 that the board would appeal to the Legislature for a compromise on Crist's recommended cuts. But the board and Legislature are not always on the same page. The board joined former Florida Sen. Bob Graham's lawsuit against the Legislature to fight for tuition-setting powers at the July meeting. The Tuition Differential Program was created to raise money to hire more faculty and advisers, and Crist approved it in June. The program will incrementally raise tuition 40 percent over four years. Edmonds called the program's approval a great political achievement for state universities, but said Crist's proposed cuts could leave universities right where they started. "We look forward to a dialogue with Dean Colson and Governor Crist on ways we can make our State University System stronger," Roberts said in the board's release. New RTS station opens By KATIE EMMETS Alligator Contributing Writer She said it was cleaner and neater. Shanita Ford, an SFCC sophomore, was one of many patrons at the new Regional Transport System bus station Wednesday. While there are improvements, Ford said the location of the new RTS Downtown Station, 700 SE Third St., makes some buses late because of the new routes. RTS held a grand opening Tuesday for the new 100,000 square foot station, which includes a canopy, public restrooms and an updated ticket booth. Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan said at the event, "When I was first elected in 1996, there was about 1.5 million people per year using the Gainesville RTS." Now, RTS has nine million people use its transportation annually, Hanrahan said. Hanrahan said since the institution of using the Gator 1 Card as a bus pass in 1997 and 1998, the vast majority of the RTS riders have been students. As the demand for transportation and buses Around increased in Gainesville the Downtown Plaza, safety became an issue for the RTS riders because doubleparked buses blocked traffic. "We outgrew the Downtown Plaza, and it became necessary to find a new location," said Public Works Director Teresa Scott. The total cost to create the station was about $1.7 million. It was built -by Scherer Construction & Engineering of North Florida.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2007 K ALLIGATOR, 9 Experts look at Simpson case E SIMPSON HAS POSTED BAIL. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LAS VEGAS (AP) -In a scene of legal deja vu, a grayer, heavier O.J. Simpson stood handcuffed in court Wednesday to face charges that could put him behind bars for life. The prosecutor who failed to get him a dozen years ago was there to watch, and news cameras tracked his every move as if they were covering a slowspeed chase. But as Simpson made his $125,000 bail on charges including kidnapping and armed robbery, legal experts were questioning: Could a former football star who beat a doublemurder rap really do hard time for a crime that sounds like a bad movie? Police have laid out a case that makes Simpson the leader in an armed holdup of sports memorabilia collectors, and they arrested a fifth suspect in the case Wednesday. Some of the facts -including a curious recording of the confrontation -don't seem so dear-cut. Legal exNational perts say that News issues such as who had rightful ownership of the goods and the reputation of witnesses in the sometimes less-than-reputable world of memorabilia trading could cloud the prosecution's case. Simpson has insisted he was merely retrieving items that were stolen from him earlier. Alfred Beardsley, one of the collectors who says he was robbed at gunpoint by Simpson and several other men, told NBC's "Today Show" before Simpson's hearing that he didn't think an audiotape made at the scene was accurate. Beardsley was arrested on a parole violation Wednesday The other victim, Bruce Fromong, was recovering from a heart attack in a Los Angeles hospital. The man who arranged the meeting between Simpson and the two collectors, Tom Riccio, has a criminal record. "Thecredibilityofthecohorts in the enterprise would be a key issue at trial," said University of Southern California law professor Jody Armour. Dennis Turner, a professor at the University of Dayton School of Law, agreed. "This is a pretty shady world and pretty shady characters dealing with each other in a pretty shady way." A key difference with the 1995 murder trial is that there are plenty of witnesses this time who place Simpson at the scene, including hotel video surveillance. Simpson has made no secret he went to the hotel room intending to take the memorabilia. STUDENT GOVERNMENT Gator releases goals By DEVIN CULCLASURE Alligator Writer dculclasure@alligator.org Student Government's Gator Party has released its platform, which includes goals of creating a sustainability minor and reworking UF's E-Learning System. Yooni Yi, Gator Party president, said the platform -released Tuesday -focuses on meeting the needs of the largest, most diverse group of students possible. "My platform reaches out to the student body," Yi said. "We're covering what they need and what they really want out of their Student Government. Yi said the Gator Party has both short-term and long-term goals. Party objectives that could be implemented quickly include integrating the E-Learming System with UF WebMail, she said. E-Learning is confusing, Yi said, and her party wants students to be able to have forwarded e-mail reminders for events, deadlines and mail featured in the system. Other short-term goals include extending library hours during exam week and implementing metered parking at the Southwest Recreation Center. Metered parking would allow students without decals to use the facility during decal hours, she said. For the long term, one of Gator's plans is to create a sustainability minor. Yi said the sustainabilYi ity minor would give students an avenue to learn and accomplish more in that field. "It's being sustainable in a way because you are building leaders in these concepts," she said. Yi said she thinks these goals can be accomplished and paid for within one year by improving communication with UF's administration. "I think the administration is really willing to work with students," Yi said. "There's a lack of communication, but once they realize students are interested, I think they would want to work and find a way to make things happen." Report says Meyer was laughing after arrest PRANKS, from page 1 wrote in the report. Then came the struggle. According to the report, police were only able to handcuff Meyer's right hand as he thrashed about, and Sgt. Eddie King gave the order to Taser his left shoulder to cuff that hand. Mallo complied. At a press -conference Tuesday, UF President Bernie Machen announced that King and Mallo were suspended with pay. According to the report, several officers were bruised, but no one needed medical attention. King's sunglasses were destroyed and his hat was knocked off, according to King. The report lists Meyer's fist as his weapon. After Meyer was arrested, Mallo wrote that he was "laughing and being lighthearted" when cameras were out of sight. The report said Meyer asked if cameras would be at the jail. Mallo wrote that on the way to jail, Meyer told police, "I am not mad at you guys, you didn't do anything wrong, you were just doing your job." Meyer's lawyer, Robert Griscti, said Monday's incident was not a planned stunt. Still, Meyer's On p Web site, which Campus features several homemade videos, political rants and purchasing instructions for an $89 remotecontrolled, color-changing "pimp lamp," has raised suspicions about his diatribe on Monday. One of Meyer's videotaped sketches features Meyer standing in a street with a sign proclaiming, "Harry Dies," when the last Harry Potter book, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," was released in July. The Associated Press contributed to this report. Precision Ping-Pong Hongqiang Zhai, an electrical engineering alumnus, Wednesday evening. The games were part of a Table plays table tennis at the Florida Gym on Tennis Club meeting. FDLE plans to use video footage to identify witnesses close to officers FDLE, from page 1 ably be made in about two weeks, he said. Mann said the FDLE will review the evidence more slowly than the officers at the Kerry speech had time to do on Monday. If necessary, a trial date will be scheduled after the review, he said. "We'll talk to people with specific knowledge of the case, not just what they've seen on TV," Mann said. "There's a big difference." He said he couldn't estimate how long the investigation will take. The office hasn't even received a complete case report, he added. Gogerty said FDLE will use videos to identify witnesses who were close to the officers and Meyer for interviews. She said FDLE will use the footage to review Monday's events, but it will be intently scrutinized. Consideration of the location of the camera, where the tape begins and where it ends are crucial to the investigation, she said. Different angles can tell different stories. Gogerty said investigations are part of FDLE's normal responsibilities. Any time an officer is involved in a shooting, regardless of the kind of gun, FDLE gets involved, she said. Gogerty estimated there are usually more than 20 investigations done per year. The investigation into Monday's Tasering will utilize four of the six FDLE officers based in Gainesville, she said, which is an average niunber.

Biting the Big Apple Gainesville band gets break in New York STEPHANIE GRANADA 0 AVENUE WRITER At the turn of the century, the New York music scene entailed nicotine-filled, dimly lit nightclubs and larger-than-life wasted rockers. The realities today are that smoking is against the law inside the city's public buildings and hopeful rock stars have to be on their best behavior to impress the record labels that often scout bands at miscellaneous shows. Gainesville band Debutaunts got its taste of the modem New York rock scene Sept. 14 when it played an exclusive show for Universal Records and other record labels. "If anything, the music scene in New York has become more commercial," bassist Eric Bloomquist said. When Debutaunts were last in-7" '"".". -/ 1yw The Debutaunts play a show at Midway in the Lower East Side of Manhattan for the Universal Records label showcase. The Gainesville band played in front of seven record labels. terviewed by the Avenue in April, it was a five-piece band preparing to release its first EP. Five short months later, it found itself in a place bands spend years trying to reach: a Lower East Side rock dub, playing a special show for seven major record labels. "It is a whole different vibe playing for record label executives," guitarist Jonathan Shupert said. "Everything has to be perfect." On June 8, Debutaunts traveled to the Big Apple to meet with Universal Records representative Matt Marooney. Afterward, the band was invited to play Universals Record's official showcase. Realizing what a unique opportunity the showcase would be for the band, the guys immediately decided to play it. "We are serious about music, and we are shopping for a label," frontman Jazek Creacy said. "We could not pass up the chance to play for so many of them." Summer vacation was spent practicing, writing new music and filling the gap made by losing a band mate. Earlier in the summer, the band's fifth member, Mats Peterson, parted ways with the band, taking with him the sound of his baby grand piano."Losing a member forces everyone to pick up their heels and perfect what they are doing, because the sound changes when you lose an instrument," Creacy said. "But in all honestly, I think it has turned out better. The sound is more even and less cluttered." Record label executives must have agreed because at the showcase, Debutaunts was showered with business cards from record executives. "They were really good," Marooney said. For Debutaunts, music is its main priority. Every show it plays and every rehearsal it runs through is done with perfection in mind. "Many bands just have music as a hobby, and the ones who take music seriously often don't have the drive and determination to pursue a major label," Creacy said. "We've always been the kind of band that is perfectionist about what we do, which sets us aside." The hard work paid off with the success of its concert Friday. "The show was a great learning experience as well as an opportunity for us to show our name out there," drummer Stephen Santana said. "I think we are more on their radar now." But the band is not going to give itself away to the first label it finds. For now, the band members are considering their options and continuing to write and record music in their own record studio in preparation of their fall tour. "Now we are at a place where we can accomplish what we want with the people we have and the way we perform," Creacy said. "We are not missing any elements." 90 minutes, one joke "Mr. Woodcock" is a textbook example of the preview showing all the funny parts of a movie. After an hour and a half, I can safely say there was only one scene not revealed in the previews worthy of a laugh. That's it. Only one. The rest of the film plods along with little enthusiasm and even fewer laughs. "Mr. Woodcock" is the kind of movie that was written on the back of a bar napkin during a high school reunion. It feeds the desire to "get back" at previous authority figures who have wronged us in the past. The story is about John Farley (played by Seann William Scott, or as he's know to our generation, Stifler from "American Pie"), a successful self-help writer who is invited to receive an award in his hometown. When he gets back, he discovers that his mom, the always wonderful Susan Sarandon, is dating his old gym teacher, Mr. Woodcock (Billy Bob Thorton). This plot has all the makings of a short film or one episode of a sitcom. It does not work for a feature-length film. The jokes are spread too far apart and the schmaltzy morals toward the end pitifully diminish what little comic value there was to begin with. The best/funniest part of the film is when Mr. Woodcock torments the children in his class. Thorton delivers his lines in a perfect deadpan that is difficult not to laugh at. However, this sequence only lasts about five minutes and is at the very beginning of the film. Really, you could walk out of the theater after 10 minutes and not regret leaving early. Perhaps the most pointless part of this pointless movie was the love interest, Tracy, played by Melissa Sagemiller. Why is she even in this movie? She adds no depth to the primary characters, no development to the plot and, the worst sin of all, no comedy to a comedy. If, at the end of the day, you're looking for a bland, uninteresting, uninspired movie about getting even with your gym teacher, then see "Mr. Woodcock." But then again, if this is what you're looking for in a movie, perhaps you need to get out more. -, ~ l7

Space rock 'n' roll Friday's show bids farewell LANE NIESET 0 AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER When asked to describe what genre of music the band Binary Forest Faux Pas fits into, the members paused for a second before jokingly naming the genres "science rock" and "space rock." Singer and guitarist Greg Pishko, 23, simply responded, "I guess we're rock music." The Gainesville band is playto drummer ing their last show with drummer Chuck Smyth at 8 p.m. Friday at the Downtown Community Plaza. The show is free and also will feature musical acts Holopaw and Michael Holland. "It is a reformation of the band," Laura Heald/Afligator Binary Forest Faux Pas plays a show Tuesday night at The Atlantic. Drummer Chuck Smyth's last performance will be at their free show downtown on Friday. Smyth, 28, said. Binary Forest Faux Pas was his side project, but he is leaving to focus on his other band, the Cadets. Expanding horizons For Friday's show, Binary Forest Faux Pas added two additional members: Amber Zappia, 18, who plays hand drums and secondary percussion, and Andrew Simler, 19, who sings backup vocals and plays guitar. "Hopefully since we have a couple more people, we will be able to do some more intricate things," Pishko said. "There is an extra element you can't quite put your finger on, and I think the secondary percussion will bring out that world-music feel to the general rock sound." The band will feature an array of instruments in its set not found on its album, including a cowbell, tambourine and doumbek, a type of hand drum. "This is a chance for people to see some good rock 'n' roll music that is slightly unique but still has quite a few roots in the classic rock style that people enjoy," Pishko said. Pishko started Binary Forest Faux Pas almost a year ago to make and play music with his friends. "I created the name to criticize digital formats and how far people will go to computerize the world to make nature digital," he said. The band normally plays shows in Gainesville, but it has played a few acoustic sets in South Florida, where a majority of its members are from. Local love They released their first album in April, titled "All I See is Numbers," on School Glue Records, a record label Pishko runs out of his house. Another musician who was friends with the band created the name and it stuck, Pishko said. "The label is a collective of people who are traded off musically between the different bands," he said. His house, dubbed "the Manor" by local musicians who have come and gone over the years, is a common practice space and where most of the recording takes place. "Everybody here is just very active in playing music on their own time and with other bands," Pisbko said. "The music won't end because we are all kind of part of this collective." School Glue Records is composed of seven bands: five local bands, a band from Boston and a band from Ormond Beach. The label is a side project for Pishko while he completes his Ph.D. in mechanical engineering at U. "It is pretty much about friends at this time in our lives doing something that we love together," he said.

Forget self-control; get a DCB CEDRIC HARRIS 0 CONTRIBUTING SEX COLUMNIST Most nights I go out, I need a DCB. A DCB, or a "designated cock blocker," is someone who keeps an eye on people like me who sometimes wake up in the morning hoping they didn't hook up with that random, sort-ofsketchy, somewhat homely person from the bar last night, only to roll over and find said person. For example, one morning after too many Southern Comfort and limes, I awoke with a sore head, an odd cut on my leg and a weird lump in the bed next to me. I ran to the living room and scanned for my roommates to make sure there wouldn't be any witnesses. I rushed to awaken the lump and used some lame excuse for an immediate evacuation. As I shoved the lump through the door, lo and behold, my rcommate was standing right in the kitchen. Her expression was confused at first, but she 'slowly gave me the sliest of smiles. At that moment, I knew I'd become a punch line for the next month. The solution to such a predicament is easy: prevention. We learned this concept in eighthgrade health class through contraception and proper hand-washing techniques, but they forgot the important suggestion of a DCB. Like a designated driver, the DCB is appointed at the beginning of the night. Unlike the designated driver, the DCB can still drink. A drunken DCB might even be better at his job because drunks are usually blunt and can definitely end a mood. Don't pick just anyone for this esteemed position, though. Your average cock block won't do -their unintentional cock blocking skills can't be, controlled. All your friend has to do is make sure you don't let just anyone in your pants -including the ex you call after too much tequila. As a result, although you may not feel like a million bucks in the morning, at least you don't have to worry about having an unwelcome guest next to you. The next time you're preparing for a forgetful night out, don't bother with chastity belts or selfcontrol. Rely on a DCB to ensure you have all the fun without aiy unwanted lumps in the bed. 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 '1* New Foc range .of ADRIAN RUHI 0 AVENUE WRITER Ten years after the definitive "The Colour and The Shape," the Foo Fighters reconvene with "Colour" producer Gil Norton. The result isn't quite another classic, but "Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace," releasing Tuesday, will satisfy Foo fans.

20, ALLIGATOR E THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2007 UF FOOTBALL Jackson may not start By BRYAN JONES Alligator Staff Writer bjones@alligator.org UF free safety Kyle Jackson may have lost his starting spot. After pulling Jackson during the first half of the Tennessee game last week, UF coach Urban Meyer said Wednesday that he will make a gametime decision whether to start Jackson or freshman Major Wright against Mississippi on Saturday. "They're both going with the [first team] right now," Meyer said. Meyer spoke with Jackson on the phone Sunday night to voice his support for the safety despite his struggles. Jackson told Meyer that he is too invested to give up. "I just need to make that extra step on a tackle," Jackson said. "This week I'll be out there doing extra tackling and bringing that extra step. I've been playing football for too long, and I know I've got it." INJURY UPDATE: Meyer said wide receiver Riley Cooper is probable for Saturday while offensive lineman Maurkice Pouncey will be a game-time decision. Both suffered sprained ankles against Tennessee. "Riley (was) gimping around a little bit today, but we expect him to go," Meyer said. "Maurkice is a game-time decision, I'm told, and I'm hoping it's going to work out." "I just need to make that extra step on a tackle." Kyle Jackson UF free safety If Pouncey is unable to play, Maurice Hurt is expected to take his spot in the lineup. If Cooper can't play, David Nelson could see more field time. Meyer said he has been extremely impressed with Nelson, particularly as a blocker. "He just practiced his tail off," Meyer said. "Instead of worrying about things, he's just going out and going as hard as he can."

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2007 E ALLIGATOR, 21 NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE 9. I I "I p 0 F 0 N lp I I ,,. "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" Gators could face former Vols' QB Schaeffer | FOOTBALL from page 23 what we're doing -we go over our checks," Wallace said. "He gives me a look and a signal, and I go with it. He's always making the right call." Though Adams said it is the type of injury he will have to force himself to play through, his potential replacement is a familiar face for the Gators. The Rebels' backup is former Tennessee quarterback Brent Schaeffer. Schaeffer was a highly regarded recruit coming into Knoxville, but he lost playing time to the Volunteers' current starter, Erik Ainge, decided to transfer and eventually landed itt Mississippi. Though Schaeffer has had a less-than notable career with the Rebels, Orgeron said Schaeffer's attitude has improved, and he is doing better academically. But it's going to take a lot more than just a quarterback to pull the upset against No. 3 UF (3-0, 1-0 SEC) on Saturday. Running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis is the workhorse for Mississippi (1-2, 0-1 SEC). Whether Adams or Schaeffer starts, Mississippi won't go anywhere if the senior -doesn't show up. Green-Ellis has 384 yards on the ground and one touchdown. "When BenJarvus goes, we go," SoutheasterH Orgeron said. "It seems like when teams Conference stop BenJarvus, our offense kind of shuts .down a little bit." After spending a few seasons as SEC cellar dwellers, the Rebels are excited for a chance at the upset. "This is definitely the highest-ranked team I've ever played or that Ole Miss has played for a while," Adams said. "We'llbe ready. It's a once in a lifetime chance to play Florida." Defenders, goalkeeper bound by close friendships SOCCER, from page 23 Girls are a lot more emotional. As much as we don't want to admit it, if I'm having a fight with one of my defenders and I scream at them during the game, they're going to take it personally and freak out." This sense of camaraderie can be seen at the beginning of every game. Huddling at one end of the field, the members of the defense gather and discuss their goals. When the spirited conversation ends, the girls shout "big and strong," a rallying cry that has become a symbol of their unity. Credited with the creation of these motivational words, senior Shana Hudson is the defense's elder leader. "Yeah, I'll beat the crap out of people," Hudson said. The senior pointed out that playing defense does have its benefits. "When I'm having a bad day it definitely helps," she said. "It's always nice to go in there and knock some people down." Perhaps the most notorious bruiser of all is sophomore Lauren Hyde. In only her second season, Hyde has already developed a reputation. "I am glad she is on my team," Hudson said. "That's all I have to say. She is one of the toughest girls I have ever played with. She will hurt someone.", "It's always nice to go in there and knock some people down." Shana Hudson UF defender Liz Ruberry enters her third season at center back, where she has started every game. Ruberry appears calm -nd reserved off the field, but the junior from Oak Forest, Ill., rejects the idea. "I don't think you know me very well," she said. "I'm pretty wild and loud, on and off the field. I'm the best dancer on the team, so I get the team hyped up." The fifth spot belongs to Melanie Booth, who is currently competing for Canada in the World Cup. Freshman Nicky Kit and sophomore Tricia Townsend are splitting time. CALLIN' IT, from page 23 nation and the No. 10-ranked player in terms of total offense. The Gators have already made it clear that their offense is a force to be reckoned with, having the ability to react to almost any defense and boasting more weapons than a bad action movie. To be fair, the Trojans and Tigers have talented offenses as well, and LSU boasts the nation's top defense in two out of four categories. UF, LSU and USC finished last year as Nos. 1, 3 and 4, respectively. So with all three undefeated and clearly national contenders, why has the order been flipped? The Gators deserve more respect than they are getting. They should at least get as much as defending champions have received in the past. Other than UF, every national champion since 2002 has gotten first-place votes in the AP's preseason poll. Even 2005 champ Texas garnered votes, and the Longhorns lost quarterback Vince Young, its leading rusher and passer who almost single-handedly defeated USC in the Rose Bowl. The Longhorns may not have had as many question marks on defense as UF had coming into this year, but they wound up finishing out of the top-10 with three losses. They failed to even making the Big-12 Championship Game. The same fate could befall the Gators, but at this point they have earned at least a few No. 1 votes. I'm not saying that UF is the best team in the nation right now, but since when does anything other than losses remove a team from the top spot? Until they lose a game, the Gators should be viewed as the team to beat. They have the national championship trophy, as well as the talent and coaching to add another one to the trophy case after this season. All it takes is one loss to end their chance to repeat. But until that happens they shouldn't be satisfied with No. 3.

Sports THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 20,2007 Former walk-on QB leads Ole Miss By BRIAN STEELE Alligator Staff Writer bsteele@alligator.org Seth Adams isn't your typical Southeastern Conference quarterback. He didn't have the Tim Tebow-type attention coming out of Holly Springs, Miss. He never shook hands with Urban Meyer, Phillip Fulmer or Steve Spurrier. But now, the junior college transfer and former walk-on is starting for Mississippi. And his strong play has been turning heads. Through three games, Adams has thrown for 660 yards with five touchdowns and two interceptions. "It was a weight lifted off my chest," Adams said of being named starter. "That was just another step. Now that I was the starter, I had to make the next steps. "It was a dream to always play in the SEC. I didn't know how things would unfold, but I would stick to my dream. Playing in the SEC was always in the back of my mind, and I felt that in my heart that I could do it. I took a chance and took advantage of the opportunity that Coach (Ed Orgeron) gave me." That opportunity almost came to a temporary half Saturday when Adams sprained his right shoulder duringthe fourth quarter of last week's game at Vanderbilt. However, Orgeron expects the quarterback to play Saturday. After sitting out most of Tuesday's practice, Adams reportedly took some reps Wednesday "He should be fine," Orgeron said Wednesday during the weekly SEC Coaches' Teleconference. "He's a very tough, very dedicated young man." One Rebels player who is hoping for a healthy Adams is junior wide receiver Mike Wallace. So far, Wallace has team highs of 323 receiving yards and three touchdowns on the season.

Tough defense leads Gators By DANNY KLEIN Alligator Writer They don't care about goals. They hardly ever think about assists. They are the names hidden in the stat sheet -the players who have left headlines behind. They are the Gators defense, five of the UF soccer team's most unheralded and most important players. The Gators have given up a mere four goals in six regular season games, helping lead UF to a 4-2 record early on. Goalkeeper Katie Fraine is at the heart of the backline. Labeling herself the teamn's vocal leader, the redshirt freshman sums it up simply. "You know what they say," Fraine said. "Offense may win games, but defense wins championships." The adage was clear in 1998, when the Gators gave up only 17 goals in 27 total games en route to winning the program's first and only national title. So how does this year's defense stack up? According to Fraine, just call them the "Wall of Florida." "We have a lot of big girls on our defensive line, and they're all ready to hit people and throw them down," she said. "Even if it's not in the front page of the media, it doesn't matter. That's not Fralne what defense is all about. It's about winning games." Fraine said the defense is bound by strong friendships, a unique and vital factor in this case. 'With guys, a lot of times it doesn't even matter if they know each other," Fraine said. "When girls trust each other, they play better. SEE SOCCER, PAGE 21 UF deserves more love in p3ils ators fans seem pretty excited that UF is ranked No. 3 in the AP and USA Today polls, but they shouldn't be. Instead, they should be angry. The Gators received seven firstplace votes in the USA Today poll, just behind LSU's eight and USC's 44, but got zero nods for the top spot from the AP. So why aren't the undefeated, defending national champs with the unstoppable offense getting any love? Honestly, it doesn't really matter where the Gators are ranked this week. They will get their shot at No. 2 LSU in a few weeks, and if they win they will receive plenty of accolades. The rankings now won't have too much of a bearing on UF's chances of a repeat. If they go undefeated, they will be playing 'IThe UF football team is tied for first in the nation with 25 wins since the start of the 2005 season.

But after holding then-No. 22 Tennessee to less than 300 yards of total offense and just 37 yards on the ground, I think it's safe to say it's serviceable. Meanwhile, the offense is on another planet. The Gators are No. 2 in the nation in scoring offense.
