Wall graffiti removed


By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

Volunteers painted over graffiti on
the 34th Street Wall on Saturday morn-
ing, replacing it with the message
"KEEP OUR CITY CLEAN AND
GREEN."
Underneath the new paint were
the words "EVERY COP INVOLVED
SHOULD ROT IN PRISON," which
appeared after last week's UF Tasering
incident.
A memorial for the students who
died in the Danny Rolling murders was
also tagged with blue graffiti. The same

OXFORD, Miss. With the game on the line, Tim
Tebow walked up to his coach and got in his face.
The baby-faced 20-year-old quarterback wasn't
about to lose his first road start.
He made sure his 43-year-old coach knew that.
"He's in my ear, 'Let me win the game,'" UF coach
Urban Meyer said. "Okay, Tim, I'll let you win the
game.",
The sophomore star carried the No. 4 Gators (4-0,
2-0 Southeastern Conference) to a grind-it-out 30-24
win and destroyed a 40-year-old school record in the
process.
He ran for a UF quarterback-high 166 yards on 27
carries and two touchdowns.
Larry Rentz previously set the program mark with
109 yards against Tulane in 1967.
Adding in a 20-for-34 throwing performance for
261 yards and another pair of scores, Tebow account-
ed for 427 yards on 61 touches.
"That was a four-quarter fight," Tebow said. "It
was down to the last minute. I wasn't really thinking
about how many carries I had or anything like that.
I was just trying to get the first down, manage the
offense."'
UF called Tebow runs on five straight plays to bum
the final three minutes of clock after Mississippi's fi-
nal effort a fake punt failed.
He powered for a pair of first downs through the
brunt of the Rebels' defense, allowing the Gators to
kneel down and run out the dock.
"I have to commend Tim Tebow because he is
like a brick wall," Mississippi defensive back Dustin
Mouzon said. "I came up to hit him, and I kind of got
hurt."

This semester marks the final stretch of a
four-and-a-half-year journey for Adrianna
Rodriguez, a UF history and journalism senior
who will graduate in December.
Although she looks forward to a new chap-
ter in her life, Rodriguez, 22, says she fears that
when she is dropped from her parents' health
insurance after graduation, she will join the
ranks of young and uninsured Americans.

See story, pg. 17.


The Rebels deserved credit too.
. They laughed at the 23-point spread and fell just
short of victory in the fourth quarter, boldly going for
the win.
After UF settled for a 25-yard field goal to take
a 30-24 edge, the underdogs had 4:59 remaining to
mount a touchdown drive to take the lead.
But they stuttered (two false starts) and stalled at
their own 33-yard line with 3:09 left.
On a fourth-and-11, Coach Ed Orgeron tried a fake

Punter Justin Sparks completed
a short pass to tight end Robert
Lane, but defensive end Jermaine
Cunningham converted an open-
field tackle three yards shy of a first
down.
UF took a timeout before the
play and telegraphed it.
Cunningham "I know him as a coach, and
he's not going to punt that ball,"
Meyer said.
While Tebow's switch stayed on for 60 minutes,
everybody else wearing white looked a little off at
times.
A porous secondary and a weak pass rush allowed
Mississippi to score on three straight drives in the
third quarter. UF went up 27-9 and, all of a sudden,
had that lead cut to three points five minutes later.
Rebels quarterback Seth Adams, a game-time deci-
sion with a sprained shoulder, wowed with a 77-yard
touchdown pass to Mike Wallace with 7 seconds left
in the third to really spook the Gators.
Wallace sped past freshmen Joe Haden and Major
Wright on a deep sideline route, opening up a two-
yard cushion.
"I've never been beat like that before," Haden

In the first half of 2006, nearly 35 percent
of 19- to 24-year-olds were without health
insurance, according to a June
Student 2007 report from the Agency for
Life Healthcare Research and Quality.
"My concern is that I've al-
ways been lucky and blessed to
have health insurance," Rodriguez said. "But
it's going to be really hard to pay for it by my-
self because it's difficult to find a job that offers
health-insurance benefits anymore."

UF students featured in Playboy magazine


By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

In the name of school spirit,
some students would give the
shirts off their backs.
Seven UF women took off more
than that in a 10-page pictorial of
the "Girls of the SEC" October is-
sue of Playboy.
The issue, which features
"WILD SOUTHERN COLLEGE
GIRLS," according to the cover, hit
newsstands Sept. 7.
Jessica Macbeth, a pre-med
UF psychology senior who posed
with the other Gator gals in an
orange, blow-up kiddie pool, said
the number of fan e-mails she's
received pushes triple digits.
Macbeth, a tall brunette who
wore a white pullover sweater
during an interview Friday, said
she tried out for the magazine in
April because her friends dared
her.
But the joke was on them, she
said.
Two days before the photo
shoot April 13, she got the news
that she was in.
So far, she said she's had posi-
tive responses from friends and
family. She said she'd always be
proud of her participation in the
magazine.
"It's a fun thing I did when I
was young and hot," she said with
a wide smile.
Still, Macbeth said frequent
recognition by strangers is hard to
get used to.
Crowds of people at the gym
have approached her, and each
day she can count on more than 20
Facebook friend requests and mes-
sages, she said.
On Sept. 10, all seven girls par-
ticipated in a magazine signing at

of people came for autographs,
they said.
"It was weird when people had
me signing for their dad or a little
brother," Macbeth said.
She added that she signed one
copy of the magazine for her own
dad.
"He knows all about it," she
said, laughing.
She said her grandma saw it as
well. And Macbeth's boyfriend.
And his parents.
"It's not like it's Hustler."
-Natasha Combs
UFsophmore


But Macbeth, who wore a bikini
in the photo, said it doesn't matter
to her.
"It's how they'd see me at the
beach," she said.
Allison Creamer, a UF sopho-
more and self-proclaimed baby of
the group, said her boyfriend, Pat
Carroll, encouraged her to audi-
tion.
When Carroll saw his sweet-
heart's bare breasts in print,
Creamer said he couldn't have
been happier.
She said Carroll's fraternity
brothers were also excited.
"He just told them, 'Whatever.
She's beautiful,'" Creamer said.
Playboy's college pictorials
have been some of the most popu-
lar features in the magazine over
the past 31 years, according to a
press release from Playboy.
The last time Playboy featured
"Girls of the SEC" was in October
2001.
Monique Omura, a UF adver-
tising senior who posed topless,
said she has always loved Playboy.
However, she said she never ex-
pected to be a part of it.
"You don't look at it as por-
nography," Omura said, flipping


through glossy pages of busty,
naked women. "You look at it as
these beautiful girls."
Between giggles, the freckled,
dark-haired Omura explained
she's proud to have posed but
hasn't mustered the courage to
break the news to her mom and
dad.
"I don't think my parents really
need to see me naked," she said.
Looking around the room at
four of the other Playboy pinups
from UF, she said the best part of
the experience was bonding with
her new buddies.
"You'll always have the maga-
zine, but now we also all have
these great friends," Omura said.
Natasha Combs, a UF sopho-
more, said she initially had con-
cerns that participation in the
pictorial could hinder her future
career in telecommunication.
She said she ultimately de-
cided if someone doesn't hire her
because she posed, she wouldn't
want to work for that company
anyway.
Combs has a tattoo on her hip
that says "Live Free," and she said
she loves to predict personality
traits based on astrological signs.
She was the only girl from UF

with an individual shot, donning
nothing but a green net.
"I was comfortable," she said of
the shoot. "I was surprised."
However, Combs said she
was disappointed when she saw
the published product because
her name below the picture was
switched with another woman's.
"It was horrible," she said with
her eyes wide. "You want to take
credit for your own picture. That's
a really big deal."
Combs said she denied her par-
ticipation in the magazine to her
parents for as long as she could.
But when a check from Playboy

was mailed to her house, the secret
was out.
The girls would not reveal how
much they were paid for the shoot,
but Combs said it was less than
$1,000.
She said her parents weren't
thrilled about her participation at
first, but she said they were happy
she chose to be a part of "one of the
classier adult magazines."
"It's not like it's Hustler," she
said.
The girls said because they
posed for the magazine, the doors
of the Playboy Mansion in Beverly
Hills, Calif., are open to them
whenever they want to visit.
They will have to pay for travel
expenses, but with one quick
phone call, they have a ticket in-


side.
Anita Mae Rose, a UF finance
senior, said she wasn't the least bit
nervous posing topless.
The only other people in the
room were the photographer,
producer and lighting coordinator,
Rose said.
She said she wasn't worried
about dressing scantily.
So far, she hasn't had nega-
tive feedback about posing in the
magazine.
Rose added that she thinks
Americans in general are too prud-
ish about showing skin. The others
nodded in agreement.
"The female figure is something
people shouldn't be ashamed of,"
Macbeth said. "It's empowering in
a lot of ways."

Tasers used by UPD


17 times since '01


By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer
Tasers have been used 17
times in University Police
Department incidents since sum-
mer 2001, according to UPD's
spokesman.
As a result of the Sept. .17
Tasering incident, though, the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement will conduct an
investigation of UPD's use of
force.
UPD spokesman Capt. Jeff
Holcomb said potential policy
changes will not be made until
investigation results are given.
UPD started using Tasers
during summer 2001. They were
issued first to sergeants and field
training officers, Holcomb said.


UPD has not given Tasers to
the entire staff. Some captains
and majors do not have them,
he said.
UPD uses the X26 and M26
models.
The newer model, X26,'is 60
percent smaller and
Pub ic lighter than the M26,
Sa y according to the
Taser International
Web site.
The X26 also has greater
"stopping capabilities." Its en-
ergy can penetrate up to 2 inches
of clothing, according to the Web
site.
Officers are allowed to use
Tasers when someone resists
their attempts to control a .situ-
ation, according to a UPD docu-
ment titled "Use of Force."

Crist in Gainesville for NAACP


By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Alligator Writer
dculclasure@alligator.org
At the Florida Conference of the NAACP on
Saturday, Gov. Charlie Crist praised -the orga-
nization as a leader in fairness and described
several civil rights leaders who inspired him.
Crist was the keynote speaker at the closing
banquet of the NAACP's convention, where he
addressed a crowd of a little more than 500 at
Gainesville's Mount Carmel Baptist Church.
He was the first Florida governor in 64 years
to speak at the conference.
It took Crist about 10 minutes to enter
the church because he was shaking so many
hands.
During his speech, he described the impact
several civil rights leaders had on his life, in-
cluding Verle Davis, his high school principal
and .the first black principal at St. Petersburg
High School.
"Because of his influence, I am who I am
today," Crist said, referring to Davis as a "great
American."
"I haven't reached as high as he has yet, but
I'm trying."
Crist also mentioned his father, a member of
the Pinellas County School Board who served
as team doctor for St. Petersburg's Gibbs High


School all-black football team in the 1960s.
His father insisted on bringing him to the
games, where Crist said he sat in on locker-
room pep talks and prayed with the team be-
fore the game.
"It taught me a lot at a very early age that
we're all the same," Crist said. "We all have the
same hopes, the same dreams, the same aspira-
tions."
"I haven't reached as high as he has
yet, but I'm trying."
Charlie Crist
Florida governor

Crist also praised the NAACP as a leader in
"doing unto others," a rule he said drives his
administration.
"Civil rights and simple human justice and,
doing what's right for your fellow man, be-
ing kind, being gracious, being decent. These
things are important. These things matter,"
Crist said.
During his address and while answering
media questions afterward, he mentioned
Florida's high property taxes, his efforts to
attract black voters and the Florida Parole
Commission's new regulations for -restoring
civil rights to ex-criminal offenders.

UF Takes It Off

Playboy spread could

inspire UF celebs
When we heard seven UF women are featured in this
month's issue of Playboy, we immediately ran to
the nearest gas station to buy a copy for our office.
The issue contains a spread on the "Girls of the SEC." The
students were photographed back in April after on-campus
auditions. Unfortunately, they didn't get to meet Hugh
Hefner, but they said they could visit the Playboy Mansion
in Los Angeles any time they want.
What an honor.
The magazine got us thinking what kind of Playboy
and Playgirl spreads might we like to see of UF figures? You
know, like those "READ" posters in the libraries but na-
ked. Weak stomachs beware; we don't think these would all
be pretty pictures...
The most obvious photograph would be UF President
Bernie Machen posing on his Harley, wearing nothing but
a leather jacket. Of course, the hog would be cleverly posi-
tioned to keep this photo PG-13. A fan gently blowing his
hair would make it look like he was riding into the sunset.
Student Body President Ryan Moseley is also a given
for the shoot. If his hair looks that good, well, we can only
imagine about the rest of his body. This picture would fea-
ture Moseley in his third-floor office in the Reitz Union. It's
cliche, we know, but is there anything better than the wear-
ing-nothing-but-a-tie, feet-on-the-desk pose? We don't think
so. Maybe we'll even throw in a sexy student senator, too.
Vice President of Student Affairs Patricia Telles-Irvin
would be in this spread, too. She started the Gator Common
Reading Program this year, which encouraged all first-year
students to read a book before coming to UF to give them all
a common experience.
So of course, Telles-Irvin would appear among stacks
of books in Library West. She would wear a pencil behind
one ear and some glasses to give off a sexy-librarian look.
Telles-Irvin said she hopes the reading program will become
a tradition. If it had promotional posters like this, it would
be a sure thing.
We're willing to bet Andrew Meyer wouldn't mind-strip-
ping down to his skivvies, as long as he was being photo-
graphed. UF's newest celebrity could pose with a few sexy
women holding Tasers. As long as they don't shock him,
everything should be OK.
Albert and Alberta, our beloved mascots, wouldn't want
to miss out on the fun. Besides, who hasn't wondered about
what's underneath his orange sweater and her pleated dress?
We're visualizing a romantic scene shot in front of Lake Alice.
But this photo wouldn't be too graphic after all, Albert and
Alberta are just really good friends.
They may not be recognizable to every student, but most
graduate students could use a little extra dough. We could
easily round up a handful of starving teaching assistants, as
long as they were promised a free meal of anything other
than Ramen noodles or beans.
And no spread would be complete without a few Men
of the SEC. Tim Tebow, Andre Caldwell and Percy Harvin
would pose in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium with strategically
placed footballs and Gators helmets, wearing just their mesh
practice jerseys.
As Jessica Macbeth, one of the women who really was
photographed, put it isn't it great to be "young and hot"?

Police work hard to keep everyone safe
When I saw the aftermath of the police
Taser incident, I thought to myself, something
is not right. Why has this occurrence become
such a huge cause to fight for? Why is this
student getting all this attention?
UF students are upset because our freedom
of speech seems to have been attacked. And
now, the police are our enemies.
I do not remember as much fire being
stirred in the hearts of students when a pohce
officer was killed in the spring by a drunken
driver.
Maybe the cops were wrong when they
Tasered that young man, but does that give
us leave to forget the sacrifices police make to
ensure our safety?

It is true I am a retired University Police
Department officer. It is also true I am a Gator
graduate (class of 1975), and I can see things
from a student perspective as well as from a
law enforcement perspective.

Crude language didn't warrant Tasering
"Blowjob." That's the obscenity Andrew
Meyer uttered that resulted in him getting
Tasered at a free-speech event.
The First Amendment is about the right to
say things those in power don't want to hear.
In Gainesville, it is about the right of a church
to administer to the religious needs of a con-
gregation that is largely homeless. At UF, it is
about the right ot an mdwidual to say some-
thing unpopular at an Accent event.

situation. Angry citizens go with the job. If
being rude. arrogant and self-centered is now
a crime, I know a number of citizens in this
town who should also be in jail probably


including me.
Ironically, at the same time Meyer's ar-
rest took place, UF was sponsoring a First
Amendment seminar. While discussing
whether school-board budgets should be on
the Web, the real freedom of speech issue was
playing out on another part of the campus.
In an editorial, The Gainesville Sun pointed
out that instead of having one law enforcement
agency investigating another, there should be
open discourse about what happened and
what the rules of engagement should be.
Surely there are several steps between telling
someone they are acting rude, wrestling that
person to the ground and Tasering him.
In the interest of free speech: "Blowjob,
blowjob, blowjob."

Guest Column

Police officers' actions could inspire Taser free-for-all


The outrage over Monday's
incident at the Sen. John
Kerry event has gone as
far as inspiring protests on cam-
pus. Students are livid about the
actions of the University Police
Department.
After my first look at this issue,
I was shocked, too. Clearly the of-
ficers had overreacted. However,
after giving the situation some
thought, I began to reconsider my
position.


I realized .the implications of
the event. Through its actions,
UPD has given me permission to
Taser anyone who asks too many
questions. I now have the power
to punish all those who annoy
me. I should probably get a car
charger for my Taser gun because
that thing will get a lot of use. I
can think of six people I would've
Tasered just this morning. UPD has
liberated me from society's expec-
tations that I should tolerate the


Tosha Sketo intolerable
Speaking Out masses.
I am free.
Never again will I make mind-
less conversation with mindless
acquaintances. Attempts at chit-
chat will merit a Tasering. No lon-
ger will I put up with endless ques-
tions from my professors. Exams
will obviously lead to group
Taserings. Certainly the tasks and
reprimands that my supervisors
burden me with will earn them


Taserings. Yes, I will utilize my
Taser frequently, and according to
UPD, justly.
. Of course, I must acknowledge
that if I have the power to freely
yield my Taser, so does everyone
else. This could pose a problem.
People are annoyed by an endless
array of things. Some people don't
like it when I talk on my phone in
public. I'm sure I'll get Tasered at
least once a day for that.
I imagine that being Tasered is


quite annoying, and I will have to
Taser back. I don't suppose it will
take long for chaos to erupt at UF.
There will be mass Taserings all
over campus.
Maybe there was a purpose be-
hind that old notion of tolerance.
Regardless, I will follow the lead
of UPD. By the way, officers: I find
parking tickets to be the ultimate
annoyance.

LOOKING BACK

Family struggles with aftermath of student's death


By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

Even before his adult teeth grew in,
Andrew Enriquez smiled.
His cousin, Danny Enriquez, a law stu-
dent at Georgetown University, said Andy
wasn't embarrassed by how long it took for
those teeth to grow in. Grinning always came
naturally.
But now, his smile is forever frozen in pic-
tures and memories.
Andy Enriquez, a 20-year-old UF his-
tory junior who hoped to become a lawyer,
died Sept. 14 in a single-vehicle accident on
Southwest 13th Street.
"I miss him so much," said his mother, Sue
Enriquez, between bursts of sobs. "I have a
pain in my heart like there's something miss-
ing."

From grieving to giving
The Enriquez family has set up a memo-
rial fund with the UF Foundation in Andrew
Enriquez's name to raise money for a UF
scholarship.
"I hope his death leads to some student be-
ing able to fulfill their dreams," Sue said. "So
he didn't die totally in vain."
So far, the family has not requested a me-
morial service from UE
Enriquez was the middle child. His sister,
Amanda, is 21, and his brother, Timothy, is 15.
Family was everything to Enriquez, Sue
said. His siblings and cousins were his best-
friends and his support system.
Andy's friends were his family, too.
About 2,000 people were at Enriquez's
funeral Sept. 17 in Key Biscayne, Danny
Enriquez said.

For love and history
Enriquez loved spending time on the fami-


ly's boat, said his father, Tim Enriquez.
"He would fish all day if you let him," he
added.
He loved history, weightlifting and run-
ning. Tim said Enriquez worked hard to be-
come a Gator.
He spent one year at Tallahassee
Community College and one year at SFCC
before getting accepted at UF.E
He liked music mostly "that rap stuff,"
Tim said.
The 5-foot-11-inch Enriquez was a ladies'


man, his dad said.
"He had really pretty girls around here," he
said with a laugh.

"So many best friends"
In everything he did, Enriquez celebrated
his life, Tim said. He loved everyone he met.
Tim said he doesn't think Andy's death has
fully hit him yet, but Sue is struggling in the
meantime.
Sue said Enriquez would call her every
day.

UF student Andrew Enriquez died Sept. 14 in a single-vehicle accident on Southwest
13th Street.


"All his friends would say to me, I was his
best friend,'" Sue said. "I never knew anybody
in the world who had so many best friends. I
feel like he was my best friend, too."
Sue said she had already started saving her
pennies for Enriquez's law school tuition.
"He and his cousins used to joke about
having a firm called Enriquez, Enriquez,
Enriquez and Enriquez," she said.
In a few weeks, Sue said she and Tim will
go to Gainesville to dean out Enriquez's apart-
ment.

Lessons learned
UF President Bernie Machen said Andrew
Enriquez died with an armband from a bar on
his wrist and a forged ID in his pocket.
Machen said cases like this encourage him
to continue his fight against underage drink-
ing.
Tim said he hasn't seen Andy's toxicology
reports, which aren't yet available. He's not
sure he wants to see the reports.
One thing he does know is students need
to take care of themselves. Whether they have
been drinking or are just tired, they should be
careful behind the wheel, he said.
"Your body can only handle so much," he
said. "Studying is very hard, and students are
under a lot of pressure. You can drink, but, my
gosh, you've got to get your rest."

Twenty full years
Enriquez's cousin, Danny Enriquez, said
remembering Andy's good qualities brings
comfort, but it doesn't bring him back.
Still, despite tragedy, Danny said he thinks
Enriquez led a fulfilling life.
"It's the worst thing that's ever happened
to any of us, but the way he lived his Jife
brought a lot of peace," he said.
"If he had known he'd only have 20 years
to live, he probably wouldn't have done any-
thing differently."

"With freedom of speech comes respon-

unwritten rule to be respectful.".
Freshman Jocelyn Velazquez was one of the
volunteers who touched up the U.S. flag of a
memorial for soldiers.
As red, white and blue paint was slathered

Mark Cline takes care of graffiti problems
for Keep Alachua County Beautiful.
He takes pictures of graffiti before he paints
over it. The main concern on the 34th Street
Wall is profanity.
"It's a shame I have to come down here and
babysit college students," he said.
Kharyssa Rhodes, program director for
Keep Alachua County Beautiful, said while
some parts of the wall change, it is an unspoken
rule that the memorials remain untouched.
Rhodes might try to instill a city permitting
system for wall painting. The group may also
ask the city to install video cameras to monitor
wall activity, she said.
"DONT TASE ME BRO" was also marked
three times over Gainesville Police Department
Lt. Corey Dahlem's memorial.
Dahlem was hit by a drunken driver after
the spring basketball championship.
Katie Dahlem, his daughter, helped volun-
teers paint on Saturday. Her father's memorial
was touched up on Thursday.
Katie, an SFCC criminal justice sophomore,
said it hurt when she found out someone van-
dalized her father's memorial. She said the
memorial serves an important purpose.
"Mike having it," Katie said. "I like people

INSURANCE, from Page 1

Health-insurance dilemma
The cutting-edge technology that has
produced life-saving medical advances
and top-of-the-line pharmaceuticals has
contributed to soaring health care costs.
And new graduates are among the work-
ers shouldering the costs as they enter the
workforce.
Employers, hard-pressed to cover
rising health insurance premiums, have
shifted the burden of the cost to their
employees, said W. Bruce Vogel, a health-
care economist and associate professor
in the department of epidemiology and
health policy research at UF's College of
Medicine. Some companies, especially
smaller ones, are dropping coverage all
together.
Many young people, who typically
have smaller salaries, are unable to afford
their portion of the cost and go without,
Vogel said. Those who aren't offered em-
ployee-based coverage are left to shop for
policies in the pricey individual market,
he said.
Opting out of insurance
The rising cost of health insurance
may not be the only reason why so many
young Americans are uninsured.
Many choose to forego health insur-
ance benefits in favor of higher wages
because they are younger and thought to
be healthier, Vogel said.
"Going without health insurance at a
young age is running a risk, but it's not
the same risk as if you were 45," he said.
Wayne Wallace, director of the Career
Resource Center at UF, said the students
he sees are typically more concerned with
salary, location and job satisfaction than
whether they are offered health benefits.
He said young people would often rather
spend the money on other things.
"It's just not something they think
about at age 23," Wallace said. "They
don't think about how important it is un-
til something happens, and it's too late."
Going without health insurance post-
graduation may be nothing new for some
UF students.
Roughly 20 percent of UF students re-
ported not having health insurance when
a survey was taken a few years ago, said
Dr. Phillip Barkley, director of the Student
Health Care Center.
Barkley said that number might


have decreased since UF introduced
GatoprGradCare, a health plan that covers
graduate students on teaching, research
and graduate assistantships.
The plan was started in January, ac-
cording to the UF Human Resource
Services Web site.
"Going without health insur-
ance at a young age is running
a risk, but it's not the same
risk as if you were 45."
W. Bruce Vogel
health-care economist

It is common for younger students to
be on their parents' plans, but as they get
older they are more likely to be dropped,
Barkley said.
UF students are not required to carry
health insurance, though it is available for
purchase through Scarborough Company
Insurance Inc.
Risky business
Opting out of health insurance may
pose major risks for young Americans.
Young adulthood is a high-risk pe-
riod for unintended pregnancy, sexually
transmitted infections, substance abuse
and injuries, according to a report from


the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Additionally, an increasing number of
young adults have chronic medical condi-
tions, the report states.
"A catastrophic medical event can be
financially devastating for young people
without insurance," Barkley said.
Plans still available
There might be light at the end of the
tunnel for uninsured students and recent
graduates.
Low-risk policies called catastrophic
health insurance plans are available for
people in good health.
These plans might not cover doctors'
visits but provide coverage in the event of
a major medical procedure.
A healthy young person could find
a plan for as low as $60 to $80 dollars a
month with a $1,000 to $2,000 deduct-
ible, said Howard Shapiro, executive vice
president of Brown & Brown Insurance in
Tallahassee.
Shapiro also said short-term major
medical plans are available at a low cost
for young people who are between jobs.
Shapiro said lack of insurance is more
often due to irresponsibility in young
people rather than unavailability.
"If something happens and you are
uninsured, you will pay it off for the rest
of your life," Shapiro said.

Hispanic Heritage Month hosts soccer tournament


By SPENSER SOLIS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Nations collided on Hume Field on
Sunday as students competed for a gold-col-
ored cup and the right to be called champion
of the Americas.
More than 200 participants represented
18 different countries in Copa America UF,
an annual soccer tournament presented by


Hispanic Heritage Month 2007 and FOX
Sports en Espafol.
Players settled their nations' rivalries by
squaring off on the soccer field throughout
the day. Most contenders played for the
nations of their heritage, but it was not a
requirement.
Mexico won the tournament, beating
Guatemala 4-3, but the event was as much
cultural as it was competitive.


"This is not just a Hispanic event.
Soccer relates to all cultures."
Melissa Nobles
director of Copa America UF

Melissa Nobles, the director of Copa
America UF, said this year's tournament
pulled in record numbers of participants.
Non-Hispanic countries, including the


United States, Haiti and Suriname, also
participated.
"This is not just a Hispanic event," she
said. "Soccer relates to all cultures."
Nobles said the event's slogan, "Different
Roots, Same Passion," represents this diver-
sity.
"It's about individuals celebrating their
culture," she said. "Through soccer, we can
share and celebrate."

Free safety position


Sa problem for Gators


Alex Kolyer Alligator
UF safety Major Wright tackles Mississippi's Shay Hodge in the second quarter of the Gators' 30-24 win
against the Rebels on Saturday in Oxford, Miss.


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

Four weeks into the season, the
UF football team is still working
out its starting free safety.
Senior Kyle Jackson who has
struggled for much of the season
and has been pulled from games
due to poor play is still the start-
er but continues to lose ground to
freshman Major Wright.
Whoever is back there, the job
comes with lots of pressure.
"That's the quarterback (of the
defense), regardless of if it's fair or
not," UF coach Urban Meyer said
during his Sunday teleconference.
"If you miss a tackle and you're a
defensive end, the tackle or some-
one else helps you. That's part of
the position you play. You miss a


tackle in the backed, and that's a
home run. Our free safety position
has to be much better than it is
right now."
After watching Reggie Nelson
patrol the backfield last season and
lay punishing hits, fans want to see
Wright, who is also known for his
hitting ability. But Meyer won't in-
crease the freshman's role until the
coach feels he's ready.
"There's a lot of people that
say throw them out there and see
how they do," Meyer said. "That's
absolutely not the case. It's simply
week-to-week. See how Major
and Kyle played and compare the
two."
In defense of the secondary,
the defensive line has struggled
all season to get any pressure on

Running Tebow wild poses risks


On Saturday, Tun Tebow picked up
the Gators, placed them on his back
and carried them to a win against
Mississippi six yards at a time.
With the clock winding down and UF
clinging to a slim lead over the Rebels, Tebow
rushed 11 times on the final two drives for five
first downs.
Tebow's runs up the middle led to a field
goal, and he single-handedly ran off the last
three minutes with straight-ahead plows.
He finished with 166 yards on 27 carries,
and both of those numbers set UF single-game
records for a quarterback.
I've watched Tebow break plenty of records
at Nease High, and that's one that I'd rather
not see. The sophomore accounted for more
than half of the Gators' total rushing attempts,
and he is their leading runner this season. -
Urban Meyer and the rest of the coaching
staff have spent the better part of the last two
years trying to persuade Tebow to abandon
his reckless running style to prevent an injury,
but what they are doing with him now may be
even worse than letting him run over a line-
backer on his way out of bounds.
His upper body is much better equipped to
handle contact than his legs are.
Sending Tebow through the middle of op-
posing defenses on more than a quarter of the
team's offensive plays is a dangerous gamble,


Mike McCall

and sooner or later UF's
luck will run out.
Every time he goes
spinning through a
jumble of linebackers
and defensive linemen,
Tebow's knees and
ankles are very sus-
ceptible to injury, and
believe it or not, he isn't
invincible.
Ponte Vedra Beach


Nease High's coaching staff learned that
quickly, as Tebow missed time in two seasons
due to injury.
During his senior year, Tebow suffered an
ankle sprain after a quarterback sneak and
missed three starts, playing sparingly off the
bench in the third. He barely made it back in
time to guide the Panthers to a state champi-
onship, something they couldn't have accom-
plished without him.
In college, Tebow means even more to his
team than he did in high school. If there is one
part of the Gators' offense that can't be lost,
even for one game, it's Tebow.
Meyer knows this, and he acknowledged
the danger of the play-calling after the game,
saying that a quarterback should never have

Rebels shred secondary


By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Staff Writer
bjones@alligator.org

OXFORD, Miss. UF's inconsis-
tency on defense was glaring Saturday
against Mississippi, and Coach Urban
Meyer has become concerned.
The third-year coach said the unit's
deficiencies start with the pass rush,
and correcting the issue has become
an urgent priority.
"That's going to cost us a game,"
Meyer said. "I never see their quarter-
back get hit, and that's a problem."
At times, the UF defense dominat-
ed the Rebels the way it expected to.
But with the pass rush disappear-
ing for much of the game, Mississippi
took advantage of an inexperienced
defensive backfield.
"We have a young secondary that
got exposed today," Meyer said.
Mississippi quarterback Seth
Adams torched the Gators for 302

yards through the air, including two
touchdowns.
The third quarter was particularly
troubling.
Sophomore cornerback Wondy
Pierre-Louis got beat -on a 51-yard
reception by Mississippi receiver
Michael Hicks, which brought the
Rebels to the UF five-yard line, setting
up a field goal.
On the Rebels' next possession,
Adams connected with receiver
Shay Hodge on three-
Gators straight plays totaling
Defense 48 yards. On the third
reception, UF free safe-
ty Kyle Jackson made
an ill-advised attempt to jump the
route and intercept the pass. Jackson's
lunge didn't even come dose, and
Hodge walked into the end zone.
One drive later, receiver Mike
Wallace got behind the secondary
and Adams found him for a 77-yard

Volleyball rallies to


seal win against LSU


* UF REMAINS UNDEFEAT-
ED AFTER ROAD TRIP.'

By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Writer

Trailing No. 22 LSU 24-21, in
danger of going to a decisive fifth
game, the Gators turned to what
they know best outside hitter
Marcie Hampton.
The senior responded, tallying
five of her 20 kills as UF scored
nine straight points to win the
match 3-1 (30-25, 30-24, 27-30,
30-24).
The Tigers (11-2, 3-1
Southeastern Conference) looked
poised to push the match to the
limit after making an 8-0 run
in game four. A pair of 4-0 runs
helped dose the gap before the No.
6 Gators (11-0, 4-0 SEC) went on
their deciding streak to finish off a
weekend road sweep.
In a match filled with highly
contested calls, UF coach Mary
Wise didn't mind two disputable
LSU double hits during the match-
ending run.
"You're not supposed to get
breaks on the road," Wise said.
"I think we did get two big-time
breaks late in game four. I'm
not sure that either of those calls
should've gone our way and they
did."
Sunday's match featured both
SEC division leaders, and the
Gators looked to both old and new
to carry them.
Senior middle blocker Kisya
Killingsworth had a big day, total-
ing 14 kills and four blocks with a
team-high .385 hitting efficiency.
Killingsworth scored her
1,000th career kill, and it couldn't
have come at a better time. LSU
had taken a 20-19 lead late in game
one, when Killingsworth reached


the millennium mark, evening the
score. UF would not trail again en
route to taking the first game.
Wise made a key lineup change
late in game one, substituting
freshman Callie Rivers, daughter
of Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers,
for a struggling Janine Williams.
Williams had no kills and one er-
ror on four attacks and would not
re-enter the match.
Rivers made an immediate
impact, scoring a kill and a block
by the end of the game and would
stay in the rotation for the rest
of the match,
starting the
remaining three
games.
"She _tallied
nine kills along
the watch one off
her career high.
foreshadowed in Before Sunday,
whive Rivers played in had seen
action in only 15 of 34 games, most
of which was frecor short periods.
"Callie's a competitor," Wise
said. "You could just look in her
eyes, before this match she
wanted to plaght time. She's taken the
bestuse of this opportunf her eity."
Wise's decision may have been
foreshadowed in Friday's match
against Mississippi (12-3, 2-2 SEC)
when Rivers played in all three
games and recorded four kills in
the victory.," Wise said. "The
UF swept Mississippi for the
17th-straight time. Hampton led
the team with 13 kills, but it was
Killingsworth who stormed out of
the gate, tallying five of her eight
kills in game one.
"-It was almost as if the student
section kind of kicked Kisya into
another gear," Wise said. "The
look on her face she came to
play"
Radio and television broadcasts
contributed to this report.


Meyer concerned with high number of carries for quarterback


FOOTBALL, from page 1


said.
With the lead cut to 27-24, the returning
national championship players -- led by
Tebow would come to the rescue.


Senior safety Tony Joiner had a key fourth-
quarter interception and sophomore wideout
Percy Harvin had a game-high 11 catches for
121 yards.
Mississippi played eight and nine men in-
pass coverage, shutting off deep passes and
forcing Tebow to throw dinks and dunks and
pull it down and run.


Meyer said Tebow would ideally take
about 10 carries per game, and
he worried about overusing
his prized quarterback.
"We have to be very careful
Oo ball with the Tebow thing," Meyer
said. "That's a crutch."
If the Gators thought Saturday was tough,


what's coming could be downright scary.
UF, now the sole leader of the SEC East
Division, hosts Auburn next week and then
travels to LSU and Kentucky before ending
October with Georgia.
First, it's back to Gainesville.
"I'm anxious to get on a plane," Meyer
said, "and get the hell out of here."

UF SOCCER

UF nets ties against unranked foes


By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Writer

At this point, the UF soccer team's prob-
lems are becoming trends, and games that
should be wins are turning into missed op-
portunities.
On Sunday, the No. 12 Gators (4-2-2)
finished the weekend the same way they
started it, with a tie to an unranked team.
Heading to Nebraska in a rare home-
away split weekend, the Gators and the
Cornhuskers (3-2-3) took 110 minutes to
put a 1-1 tie in the books.
UF started the weekend with a draw
against Florida Atlantic in a scoreless
match Friday night.
The Gators and Owls agreed to call the
game following regulation due to poor
weather conditions.
The double-overtime tie in Lincoln,
Neb., came in front of a crowd of 465 and


represented the Gators' first overtime con-
test of the season.
The Cornhuskers applied pressure early
on, out-shooting the Gators 10-3 in the
opening 45 minutes.
"It was just a misplayed goal."
Becky Burleigh
UF soccer coach

The second half began on a sour note for
the Gators, when a free kick from 35 yards
out by Nebraska's Selenia lacchelli slipped
through UF goalkeeper Katie Fraine's
hands for a goal.
"It was just a misplayed goal," UF coach
Becky Burleigh said. "It's not like we were
doing anything poor on defense, it was
only a minute into the half. But I don't
think anyone put their head down. We
just recovered and began to put all sorts of
pressure on them."


The embarrassing score served as a
turning point for the Gators.
In the 65th minute, forward Stacy
Bishop connected on a free kick from de-
fender Lauren Hyde, heading the ball into
the back of the net.
The rest of the game featured a slew
of near misses for the Gators, including a
heartbreaker by forward Ashley Harris in
the 96th minute, when she was able to beat
the goalie before Nebraska's Carly Peetz
slid to knock the ball away only inches
before it crossed the plane.
The Gators received a final chance in the
107th minute, when Bishop's fifth shot of
the game sailed over the net.
"Today was a much different feel than
Friday," Burleigh said. "Even though I
know the result was the same. I felt a lot
better about the way we played today than
Friday. I felt like we outplayed Nebraska,
the result just wasn't there."


Meyer: Lack of depth in secondary leaves few options


DEFENSE, from page 17

touchdown that brought the
Rebels to within three points at
27-24.
"It was.pretty good cover-
age," said UF cornerback Joe
Haden, who was defending
Wallace on the play. "It was just,
when the ball went in the air, he
accelerated.
"He's one of the fastest kids
I've ever seen."


M CALL-IN', from pag


as many carries in a game as Tebow had.
The problem is that Meyer hasn't been
given a reason not to run Tebow. He almost
never fails to pick up the necessary yards,
and he seems to be the most reliable option.
What baffles me is the reluctance to
hand the ball to Kestahn Moore, the starting
running back whom Meyer has repeatedly
called a trustworthy player.
Moore struggled to hold on to the ball
last year, prompting me to name him


With inexperience and inju-
ries plaguing the UF secondary,
Meyer said he doesn't have the
depth to make full-scale lineup
changes when players aren't
performing well.
"There are no choices right
now," Meyer said. "You've got
what you got."
Jackson, a senior, was
benched in the first half against
Tennessee and his struggles
forced Meyer to consider pull-
ing his starting job in favor of
true freshman Major Wright.


Strong safety Tony Joiner,
Jackson's best friend, was vis-'
ibly upset when asked about
Jackson's confidence following
the game.
"I think his
confidence is still
the same," Joiner
Foot all said. "There's
not really any-
thing I see for
his confidence to be lower. I'm
going to talk to him again on the

But while the Gators were


Kestahn "nobody fumbles" Moore.
He has since shed that moniker and
become a consistent performer, averaging
more than five yards per carry with no
fumbles on 53 attempts.
However, with the game in jeopardy,
Tebow seizes control of the running duties.
Whether this is because Meyer doesn't
actually trust his backs or because Tebow
insists upon it, it carries a risk that could end
UF's title hopes in a snap, crackle or pop.
This isn't to say that they should play
scared. The moment they begin calling
plays just to avoid an injury, the offense will
become less productive.


burned by the Rebels' passing
attack, they contained All-
Southeastern Conference run-
ning back Benjarvus Green-Ellis
and the run game.
They allowed 80 yards and
no touchdowns on the ground,
holding Green-Ellis to just 37
yards.
"Our linebackers and our D-
lineman are playing phenome-
nal (against the run) right now,"
Joiner said. "When everything
is put together, we are going to
have a great defense."


Meyer and his staff can and will do
whatever they have to in order to win,
and with games against top Southeastern
Conference foes looming, they'll want the
ball in safe hands.
No matter what, every time Tebow goes
to the ground, the collective breath of Gator
Nation will be held.
Perhaps the day will never come when
Tebow hobbles off the field to polite ap-
plause, but I think Meyer and his fans
would agree that they have to minimize the
chances of that happening.
The easiest way to do this is to let the
running backs do some running.

the opponent's quarterback. The
Gators have seven sacks through
four games.
"They're tied together," said
Meyer of the cov-
erage and pass
rush struggles.
"When your de-
fensive backs are
playing well, it's
usually correlat-

Jackson pass rush. I think
it's somewhat tied, but you can't
use that as an excuse."

SHARE THE LOVE: Standout sopho-
more Percy Harvin stole the show
Saturday with 121 receiving yards
and a touchdown and he had
several runs called back due to
penalties but Meyer knows he
has more than just Harvin at his
disposal.
"[Jarred] Fayson was wide open
and we didn'f get him the ball,"
Meyer said. "[Cornelius Ingram]
is very involved in our offense and
had a couple catches. I think we
went a little conservative."

GAME TIME: UF announced that
this weekend's home game against
Auburn will start at 8 p.m. and be
televised on ESPN.

ETC: Meyer said running back
Kestahn Moore's shoulder was
a little "dinged up," but that he
would be fine for this weekend...
He also said wideout Riley Cooper
should return, and he also hopes to
have Andre Caldwell back.

VOLUME 101 ISSUE 22 the independent florida Not officially associated with the University of Florida Published by Campus Communications, Inc. of Gainesvile, Florida We Inform. You Decide. UF30 2 UM 24 Gators hang on to escape Mississippi upset UF quarterback Tim Tebow evades Mississippi's Billy Dobbs to score a third-quarter touchdown, giving the Gators a 21-6 lead. LOCAL Wall graffiti removed By APRIL DUDASH Alligator Writer Volunteers painted over graffiti on the 34th Street Wall on Saturday morning, replacing it with the message "KEEP OUR CITY CLEAN AND GREEN." Underneath the new paint were the words "EVERY COP INVOLVED SHOULD ROT IN PRISON," which appeared after last week's UP Tasering incident. A memorial for the students who died in the Danny Rolling murders was also tagged with blue graffiti. The same "With freedom of speech comes responsibility to the public." Akeelah Ammons nutritional sciences junior happened to the memorial of a local soldier, Army specialist Chris Neiberger, who died in Iraq in August. Nora Spencer, the UF director of LGBT Affairs, brought about 20 students from her First Year Florida class to help paint the wall. SEE WALL, PAGE 9 By NICK ZACCARDI Alligator Staff Writer nzaccardi@alligator.org OXFORD, Miss. -With the game on the line, Tim Tebow walked up to his coach and got in his face. The baby-faced 20-year-old quarterback wasn't about to lose his first road start. He made sure his 43-year-old coach knew that. "He's in my ear, 'Let me win the game,'" UF coach Urban Meyer said. "Okay, Tim, I'll let you win the game." The sophomore star carried the No. 4 Gators (4-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) to a grind-it-out 30-24 win and destroyed a 40-year-old school record in the process. He ran for a UF quarterback-high 166 yards on 27 carries and two touchdowns. Larry Rentz previously set the program mark with 109 yards against Tulane in 1967. Adding in a 20-for-34 throwing performance for 261 yards and another pair of scores, Tebow accounted for 427 yards on 61 touches. "That was a four-quarter fight," Tebow said. "It was down to the last minute. I wasn't really thinking about how many carries I had or anything like that. I was just trying to get the first down, manage the offense." UF called Tebow runs on five straight plays to bum the final three minutes of clock after Mississippi's final effort -a fake punt -failed. He powered for a pair of first downs through the brunt of the Rebels' defense, allowing the Gators to kneel down and run out the clock. "I have to commend Tim Tebow because he is like a brick wall," Mississippi defensive back Dustin Mouzon said. "I came up to hit him, and I kind of got hurt." The Rebels deserved credit too. .They laughed at the 23-point spread and fell just short of victory in the fourth quarter, boldly going for the win. After UF settled for a 25-yard field goal to take a 30-24 edge, the underdogs had 4:59 remaining to mount a touchdown drive to take the lead. But they stuttered (two false starts) and stalled at their own 33-yard line with 3:09 left. On a fourth-and-11, Coach Ed Orgeron tried a fake punt, and it almost worked. Punter Justin Sparks completed a short pass to tight end Robert Lane, but defensive end Jennaine Cunningham converted an openfield tackle three yards shy of a first down.UF took a timeout before the play and telegraphed it. Cunningham "I know him as a coach, and he's not going to punt that ball," Meyer said. While Tebow's switch stayed on for 60 minutes, everybody else wearing white looked a little off at times. A porous secondary and a weak pass rush allowed Mississippi to score on three straight drives in the third quarter. UF went up 27-9 and, all of a sudden, had that lead cut to three points five minutes later. Rebels quarterback Seth Adams, a game-time decision with a sprained shoulder, wowed with a 77-yard touchdown pass to Mike Wallace with 7 seconds left in the third to really spook the Gators. Wallace sped past freshmen Joe Haden and Major Wright on a deep sideline route, opening up a twoyard cushion. "I've never been beat like that before," Haden SEE FOOTBALL, PAGE 18 By AMELIA BECK Alligator Writer This semester marks the final stretch of a four-and-a-half-year journey for Adrianna Rodriguez, a UF history and journalism senior who will graduate in December. Although she looks forward to a new chapter in her life, Rodriguez, 22, says she fears that when she is dropped from her parents' health insurance after graduation, she will join the ranks of young and uninsured Americans. In the first half of 2006, nearly 35 percent of 19to 24-year-olds were without health insurance, according to a June Student 2007 report from the Agency for ife Healthcare Research and Quality. "My concern is that I've always been lucky and blessed to have health insurance," Rodriguez said. "But it's going to be really hard to pay for it by myself because it's difficult to find a job that offers health-insurance benefits anymore."

4, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 24,2007 UTs cu 6n /isL Jg D0z0nA UP students featured in Playboy magazine By KIM WILMATH Alligator Writer kwilmath@alIigator.org In the name of school spirit, some students would give the shirts off their backs. Seven UF women took off more than that in a 10-page pictorial of the "Girls of the SEC" October issue of Playboy. The issue, which features "WILD SOUTHERN COLLEGE GIRLS," according to the cover, hit newsstands Sept. 7. Jessica Macbeth, a pre-med UF psychology senior who posed with the other Gator gals in an orange, blow-up kiddie pool, said the number of fan e-mails she's received pushes triple digits. Macbeth, a tall brunette who wore a white pullover sweater during an interview Friday, said she tried out for the magazine in April because her friends dared her. But the joke was on them, she said. Two days before the photo shoot April 13, she got the news that she was in. So far, she said she's had positive responses from friends and family. She said she'd always be proud of her participation in the magazine. "It's a fun thing I did when I was young and hot," she said with a wide smile. Still, Macbeth said frequent recognition by strangers is hard to get used to. Crowds of people at the gym have approached her, and each day she can count on more than 20 Facebook friend requests and messages, she said. On Sept. 10, all seven girls participated in a magazine signing at The Swamp Restaurant. Hundreds of people came for autographs, they said. "It was weird when people had me signing for their dad or a little brother," Macbeth said. She added that she signed one copy of the magazine for her own dad. "He knows all about it," she said, laughing. She said her grandma saw it as well. And Macbeth's boyfriend. And his parents. "It's not like it's Hustler." ,Natasha Combs UF sophmore But Macbeth, who wore a bikini in the photo, said it doesn't matter to her. "It's how they'd see me at the beach," she said. Allison Creamer, a UF sophomore and self-proclaimed baby of the group, said her boyfriend, Pat Carroll, encouraged her to audition. When Carroll saw his sweetheart's bare breasts in print, Creamer said he couldn't have been happier. She said Carroll's fraternity brothers were also excited. "He just told them, 'Whatever. She's beautiful," Creamer said. Playboy's college pictorials have been some of the most popular features in the magazine over the past 31 years, according to a press release from Playboy. The last time Playboy featured "Girls of the SEC" was in October 2001. Monique Omura, a UF advertising senior who posed topless, said she has always loved Playboy. However, she said she never expected to be a part of it. "You don't look at it as pornography," Omura said, flipping through glossy pages of busty, naked women. "You look at it as these beautiful girls." Between giggles, the freckled, dark-haired Omura explained she's proud to have posed but hasn't mustered the courage to break the news to her mom and dad. "I don't think my parents really need to see me naked," she said. Looking around the room at four of the other Playboy pinups from UP, she said the best part of the experience was bonding with her new buddies. "You'll always have the magazine, but now we also all have these great friends," Omura said. Natasha Combs, a UF sophomore, said she initially had concerns that participation in the pictorial could hinder her future career in telecommunication. She said she ultimately decided if someone doesn't hire her because she posed, she wouldn't want to work for that company anyway. Combs has a tattoo on her hip that says "Live Free," and she said she loves to predict personality traits based on astrological signs. She was the only girl from UF with an individual shot, donning nothing but a green net. "I was comfortable," she said of the shoot. "I was surprised." However, Combs said she was disappointed when she saw the published product because her name below the picture was switched with another woman's. "It was horrible," she said with her eyes wide. "You want to take credit for your own picture. That's a really big deal." Combs said she denied her participation in the magazine to her parents for as long as she could. But when a check from Playboy Clockwise from top left: Anita Mae Rose, Jessica Macbeth, Natasha Combs, Allison Creamer and Monique Omura pose Sunday. was mailed to her house, the secret was out. The girls would not reveal how much they were paid for the shoot, but Combs said it was less than $1,000. She said her parents weren't thrilled about her participation at first, but she said they were happy she chose to be a part of "one of the classier adult magazines." "It's not like it's Hustler," she said. The girls said because they posed for the magazine, the doors of the Playboy Mansion in Beverly Hills, Calif., are open to them whenever they want to visit. They will have to pay for travel expenses, but with one quick phone call, they have a ticket inside. Anita Mae Rose, a UF finance senior, said she wasn't the least bit nervous posing topless The only other people in the room were the photographer, producer and lighting coordinator, Rose said. She said she wasn't worried about dressing scantily. So far, she hasn't had negative feedback about posing in the magazine. Rose added that she thinks Americans in general are too prudish about showing skin. The others nodded in agreement. "The female figure is something people shouldn't be ashamed of," Macbeth said. "It's, empowering in a lot of ways." AV 1 /% ON YOUR MONTHLY SE Call 1-800-741-4DER for the location nearest you. vtchycDm/w %Loch your ro oin Amerias

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 2007 N ALLIGATOR, 5 Tasers used by UPD 17 times since '01 By APRIL DUDASH Alligator Writer Tasers have been used 17 times in University Police Department incidents since summer 2001, according to UPD's spokesman. As a result of the Sept. .17 Tasering incident, though, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement will conduct an investigation of UPD's use of force. UPD spokesman Capt. Jeff Holcomb said potential policy changes will not be made until investigation results are given. UIPD started using Tasers during summer 2001. They were issued first to sergeants and field training officers, Holcomb said. UIPD has not given Tasers to the entire staff. Some captains and majors do not have them, he said. UPD uses the X26 and M26 models. The newer model, X26,'is 60 percent smaller and Public lighter than the M26, Saet according to the Taser International Web site. The X26 also has greater "stopping capabilities." Its energy can penetrate up to 2 inches of clothing, according to the Web site. Officers are allowed to use Tasers when someone resists their attempts to control a .situation, according to a UPD document titled "Use of Force." LOCAL Crist in Gainesville for NAACP By DEVIN CULCLASURE Alligator Writer dculclasure@alligator.org At the Florida Conference of the NAACP on Saturday, Gov. Charlie Crist praised the organization as a leader in fairness and described several civil rights leaders who inspired him. Crist was the keynote speaker at the closing banquet of the NAACP's convention, where he addressed a crowd of a little more than 500 at Gainesville's Mount Carmel Baptist Church. He was the first Florida governor in 64 years to speak at the conference. It took Crist about 10 minutes to enter the church because he was shaking so many hands. During his speech, he described the impact several civil rights leaders had on his life, including Verle Davis, his high school principal and.the first black principal at St. Petersburg High School. "Because of his influence, I am who I am today," Crist said, referring to Davis as a "great American." "I haven't reached as high as he has yet, but I'm trying." Crist also mentioned his father, a member of the Pinellas County School Board who served as team doctor for St. Petersburg's Gibbs High School all-black football team in the 1960s. His father insisted on bringing him to the games, where Crist said he sat in on lockerroom pep talks and prayed with the team before the game. "It taught me a lot at a very early age that we're all the same," Crist said. "We all have the same hopes, the same dreams, the same aspirations." "I haven't reached as high as he has yet, but I'm trying." Charlie Crist Florida governor Crist also praised the NAACP as a leader in "doing unto others," a rule he said drives his administration. "Civil rights and simple human justice and. doing what's right for your fellow man, being kind, being gracious, being decent. These things are important. These things matter," Crist said. During his address and while answering media questions afterward, he mentioned Florida's high property taxes, his efforts to attract black voters and the Florida Parole Commission's new regulations for restoring civil rights to ex-crninal offenders.

6, ALLIGATOR N MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 2007 Editorial UF Takes It Off Playboy spread could inspire UF celebs hen we heard seven UF women are featured in this month's issue of Playboy, we immediately ran to the nearest gas station to buy a copy for our office. The issue contains a spread on the "Girls of the-SEC." The students were photographed back in April after on-campus auditions. Unfortunately, they didn't get to meet Hugh Hefier, but they said they could visit the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles any time they want. What an honor. The magazine got us thinking -what kind of Playboy and Playgirl spreads might we like to see of UF figures? You know, like those "READ" posters in the libraries -but naked. Weak stomachs beware; we don't think these would all be pretty pictures. The most obvious photograph would be UF President Bernie Machen posing on his Harley, wearing nothing but a leather jacket. Of course, the hog would be cleverly positioned to keep this photo PG-3. A fan gently blowing his hair would make it look like he was riding into the sunset. Student Body President Ryan Moseley is also a given for the shoot. If his hair looks that good, well, we can only imagine about the rest of his body. This picture would feature Moseley in his third-floor office in the Reitz Union. It's cliche, we know, but is there anything better than the wearing-nothing-but-a-tie, feet-on-the-desk pose? We don't think so. Maybe we'll even throw in a sexy student senator, too. Vice President of Student Affairs Patricia Telles-Irvin would be in this spread, too. She started the Gator Common Reading Program this year, which encouraged all first-year students to read a book before coming to UF to give them all a common experience. So of course, Telles-Irvin would appear among stacks of books in Library West. She would wear a pencil behind one ear and some glasses to give off a sexy-librarian look. Telles-Irvin said she hopes the reading program will become a tradition. If it had promotional posters like this, it would be a sure thing. We're willing to bet Andrew Meyer wouldn't mind stripping down to his skivvies, as long as he was being photographed. UF's newest celebrity could pose with a few sexy women holding Tasers. As long as they don't shock him, everything should be OK Albert and Alberta, our beloved mascots, wouldn't want to miss out on the fun. Besides, who hasn't wondered about what's underneath his orange sweater and her pleated dress? We're visualizing a romantic scene shot in front of Lake Alice. But this photo wouldn't be too graphic -after all, Albert and Alberta are just really good friends. They may not be recognizable to every student, but most graduate students could use a little extra dough. We could easily round up a handful of starving teaching assistants, as long as they were promised a free meal of anything other than Ramen noodles or beans. And no spread would be complete without a few Men of the SEC. Tim Tebow, Andre Caldwell and Percy Harvin would pose in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium with strategically placed footballs and Gators helmets, wearing just their mesh practice jerseys.

Opinions S1 Column Never forget last oday, we mark the one-week anniversary of the Tase heard 'round the world. On this most solemn of days, I have one humble request: Would somebody please Tase me, bro? As one UF student reaches in vain for a 901st second of fame, I realize someone must fill the news vacuum left behind. I am such a man. Some of you may feel that the Tasering of a fellow student is old news, and perhaps some of you can no longer remember his or her name -which is my exactly point. It would be my worst nightmare realized if we became distracted by the truly insignificant happenings of the world. This is how the mass media manipulate us into submission. I, for one, have more important things to worry about than private security contractors in a desert 7,000 miles away. Nor can I be bothered by the government housekeeping in Mother Russia. China's economy, disease in Africa -these events clutter the news landscape. And so, I beg you: Please Tase me, bro. Give everyone news that matters. Give everybody a cause worth fighting for. Give them something important to protest. Show us how we can change the world. We're not that different, you and I. We both want the same things: security for our families, good health, some prosperity .and spinners on our cars, of course. But I differ in one key point -I want nothing more in life than to be featured in YouTube's most-viewed video of the week. That student who got Tasered at UP, now a martyr for all our sins, never even asked anyone for attention, and look how selflessly everyone told his or her story. Together with my thirst for fame and the public's hunger to shamelessly decare its own news, we are unstoppable. In. case you already forgot what I was saying, I ask you again: Please Tase me, bro.

I'll tell you what's important: I don't want to be famous for 15 Vincent Massaro minutes -I want to be famous in letters@asigator.org 15 minutes and for as long as the water will hold. But I wish it were that simple. How naive of me. So much has changed in this post-Sept. 17 world. Today, to be Tasered and videotaped is to be unoriginal. It's been done. It's boring. It's not enough. I doubt CNN would even put me on the crawl at the bottom of the screen. YouTube would laugh me off the Web. Begrudgingly, I understand. I need to come up with something new, something bold, something brave. Apart from handing out unauthorized "I Voted" stickers during the next Student Government election, what can I do? I must find someone more important than a junior Democratic senator from Massachusetts who once ran for president -is Bob Dole still around? And I'll need to be more ruthless in my questions. "Isn't it true you conceded the 1996 election when you really lost?" "Didn't you and Bill Clinton once play a game of checkers in the White House basement?" "Mr. Dole, isn't it true that you never actually used the Viagra you advertised?" And at "Viagra," my fate will be sealed. I will be deemed disruptive and the fun will begin. I must rehearse my cries for help. Above all, I must figure out a way to be heard without really saying anything. If this doesn't work, my only hope is for OJ to get off, only to be arrested again.

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 2007 E ALLIGATOR, 7 Letters to the Editor Police work hard to keep everyone safe When I saw the aftermath of the police Taser incident, I thought to myself, something is not right. Why has this occurrence become such a huge cause to fight for? Why is this student getting all this attention? UF students are upset because our freedom of speech seems to have been attacked. And now, the police are our enemies. I do not remember as much fire being stirred in the hearts of students when a police officer was killed in the spring by a drunken driver. Maybe the cops were wrong when they Tasered that young man, but does that give us leave to forget the sacrifices police make to ensure our safety? Tamar Carter 4AG Taser incident seen from both angles It is true I am a retired University Police Department officer. It is also true I am a Gator graduate (class of 1975), and I can see things from a student perspective as well as from a law enforcement perspective. I enjoy a joke as much as anyone, but my take on the Taser-ncident is that The Andrew Meyer has a major credibility problem -not to mention he's a bad actor. If I weremore computer-savvy, I'd consider starting .a Web site called www.DontBoreMeBro.com. Steven Mossburg Gainesville resident .U U Crude language didn't warrant Tasering "Blowjob." That's the obscenity Andrew Meyer uttered that resulted in him getting Tasered at a free-speech event. The First Amendment is about the right to say things those in power don't want to hear. In Gainesville, it is about the right of a church to administer to the religious needs of a congregation that is largely homeless. At U, it is about the right of an individual to say something unpopular at an Accent event. Sen. John Kerry was never in any danger, and he seemed willing to answer Meyer's tirade. After being in politics as long as he has, Kerry was totally capable of dealing with the situation. Angry citizens go with the job. If being rude, arrogant and self-centered is now a crime, I'know a number of citizens in this town who should also be in jail -probably including me. Ironically, at the same time Meyer's arrest took place, UTF was sponsoring a First Amendment seminar. While discussing whether school-board budgets should be on the Web, the real freedom of speech issue was playing out on another part of the campus. In an editorial, The Gainesville Sun pointed out that instead of having one law enforcement agency investigating another, there should be open discourse about what happened and what the rules of engagement should be. Surely there are several steps between telling someone they are acting rude, wrestling that person to the ground and Tasering him. In the interest of free speech: "Blowjob, blowjob, blowjob." Bob Freeman Gainesville resident Guest Column Police officers' actions could inspire Taser free-for-all The outrage over Monday's I realized the implications of incident at the Sen. John the event. Through its actions, Kerry event has gone as UPD has given me permission to far as inspiring protests on campus. Students are livid about the actions of the University Police Department. After my first look at this issue, I was shocked, too. Clearly the officers had overreacted. However, after giving the situation some thought, I began to reconsider my position. Taser anyone who asks too many questions. I now have the power to punish all those who annoy me. I should probably get a car charger for my Taser gun because that thing will get a lot of use. I can think of six people I would've Tasered just this morning. UPD has liberated me from society's expectations that I should tolerate the Tosha Sketo intolerable Speaking Out masses. I am free. Never again will I make mindless conversation with mindless acquaintances. Attempts at chitchat will merit a Tasering. No longer will I put up with endless questions from my professors. Exams will obviously lead to group Taserings. Certainly the tasks and reprimands that my supervisors burden me with will earn them Taserings. Yes, I will utilize my Taser frequently, and according to UPD, justly. .Of course, I must acknowledge that if I have the power to freely yield my Taser, so does everyone else. This could pose a problem. People are annoyed by an endless array of things. Some people don't like it when I talk on my phone in public. I'm sure I'll get Tasered at least once a day for that. I imagine that being Tasered is quite annoying, and I will have to Taser back. I don't suppose it will take long for chaos to erupt at UT. There will be mass Taserings all over campus. Maybe there was a purpose behind that old notion of tolerance. Regardless, I will follow the lead of UPD. By the way, officers: I find parking tickets to be the ultimate annoyance.

8, ALLIGATOR N MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 24,2007 LOOKING BACK Family struggles with aftermath of student's death By KIM WILMATH Alligator Writer kwilmath@alligator.org Even before his adult teeth grew in, Andrew Enriquez smiled. His cousin, Danny Enriquez, a law student at Georgetown University, said Andy wasn't embarrassed by how long it took for those teeth to grow in. Grinning always came naturally. But now, his smile is forever frozen in pictures and memories. Andy Enriquez, a 20-year-old UF history junior who hoped to become a lawyer, died Sept. 14 in a single-vehicle accident on Southwest 13th Street. "I miss him so much," said his mother, Sue Enriquez, between bursts of sobs. "I have a pain in my heart like there's something missmng." From grieving to giving The Enriquez family has set up a memorial fund with the UF Foundation in Andrew Enriquez's name to raise money for a UF scholarship. "I hope his death leads to some student being able to fulfill their dreams," Sue said. "So he didn't die totally in vain." So far, the family has not requested a memorial service from UP. Enriquez was the middle child. His sister, Amanda, is 21, and his brother, Timothy, is 15. Family was everything to Enriquez, Sue said. His siblings and cousins were his best friends and his support system. Andy's friends were his family, too. About 2,000 people were at Enriquez's funeral Sept. 17 in Key Biscayne, Danny Enriquez said. For love and history Enriquez loved spending time on the famifly's boat, said his father, Tim Enriquez. "He would fish all day if you let him," he added. He loved history, weightlifting and running. Tim said Enriquez worked hard to become a Gator. He spent one year at Tallahassee Community College and one year at SFCC before getting accepted at UP. He liked music -mostly "that rap stuff," Tim said. The 5-foot-11-inch Enriquez was a ladies' man, his dad said. "He had really pretty girls around here," he said with a laugh. "So many best friends" In everything he did, Enriquez celebrated his life, Tim said. He loved everyone he met. Tim said he doesn't think Andy's death has fully hit him yet, but Sue is struggling in the meantime. Sue said Enriquez would call her every day. UF student Andrew Enriquez died Sept. 14 in a single-vehicle accident on Southwest 13th Street. "All his friends would say to me, 'I was his best friend,"' Sue said. "I never knew anybody in the world who had so many best friends. I feel like he was my best friend, too." Sue said she had already started saving her pennies for Enrtiquez's law school tuition. "He and his cousins used to joke about having a firm called Enriquez, Enriquez, Enriquez and Enriquez," she said. In a few weeks, Sue said she and Tim will go to Gainesville to dean out Enriquez's apartment. Lessons learned UF President Bernie Machen said Andrew Enriquez died with an armband from a bar on his wrist and a forged ID in his pocket. Machen said cases like this encourage him to continue his fight against underage drinking. Ttm said he hasn't seen Andy's toxicology reports, which aren't yet available. He's not sure he wants to see the reports. One thing he does know is students need to take care of themselves. Whether they have been drinking or are just tired, they should be careful behind the wheel, he said. "Your body can only handle so much," he said. "Studying is very hard, and students are under a lot of pressure. You can drink, but, my gosh, you've got to get your rest." Twenty full years Enriquez's cousin, Danny Enriquez, said remembering Andy's good qualities brings comfort, but it doesn't bring himback. Still, despite tragedy, Danny said he thinks Enriquez led a fulfilling life. "It's the worst thing that's ever happened to any of us, but the way he lived his .life brought a lot of peace," he said. "If he had known he'd only have 20 years to live, he probably wouldn't have done anything differently."

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 2007 E ALLIGATOR, 9 | Options available for post-graduate health insurance Police officer's daughter helped volunteers paint WALL, from Page 1 UF nutritional sciences junior Akeelah Ammons said it was great to see so many people come together to repaint. "With freedom of speech comes responsibility to the public," Ammons said. "It's an unwritten rule to be respectful.". Freshman Jocelyn Velazquez was one of the volunteers who touched up the U.S. flag of a memorial for soldiers. As red, white and blue paint was slathered onto the surface, the blue graffiti vanished, and a flag reappeared. "There are so many other Local ways you can express yourself," News Velazquez said. Keep Alachua County Beautiful is responsible for keeping up the appearance of the wall. Mark Cline takes care of graffiti problems for Keep Alachua County Beautiful. He takes pictures of graffiti before he paints over it. The main concern on the 34th Street Wall is profanity. "It's a shame I have to come down here and babysit college students," he said. Kharyssa Rhodes, program director for Keep Alachua County Beautiful, said while some parts of the wall change, itis an unspoken rule that the memorials remain untouched. Rhodes might try to instill a city permitting system for wall painting. The group may also ask the city to install video cameras to monitor wall activity, she said. "DONT TASE ME BRO" was also marked three times over Gainesville Police Department Lt. Corey Dahlem's memorial. Dahlem was hit by a drunken driver after the spring basketball championship. Katie Dahlem, his daughter, helped volunteers paint on Saturday. Her father's memorial was touched up on Thursday. Katie, an SFCC criminal justice sophomore, said it hurt when she found out someone vandalized her father's memorial. She said the memorial serves an important purpose. "I-like having it," Katie said. "I like people. to drive by, remembering it." INSURANCE, from Page 1 Health-insurance dilemma The cutting-edge technology that has produced life-saving medical advances and top-of-the-line pharmaceuticals has contributed to soaring health care costs. And new graduates are among the workers shouldering the costs as they enter the workforce. Employers, hard-pressed to cover rising health insurance premiums, have shifted the burden of the cost to their employees, said W. Bruce Vogel, a healthcare economist and associate professor in the department of epidemiology and health policy research at UF's College of Medicine. Some companies, especially smaller ones, are dropping coverage all together. Many young people, who typically have smaller.salaries, are unable to afford their portion of the cost and go without Vogel said. Those who aren't offered employee-based coverage are left to shop for policies in the pricey individual market, he said. Opting out of insurance The rising cost of health insurance may not be the only reason why so many young Americans are uninsured. Many choose to forego health insurance benefits in favor of higher wages because they are younger and thought to be healthier, Vogel said. "Going without health insurance at a young age is running a risk, but it's not the same risk as if you were 45," he said. Wayne Wallace, director of the Career Resource Center at U, said the students he sees are typically more concerned with salary, location and job satisfaction than whether they are offered health benefits. He said young people would often rather spend the money on other things. "It's just not something they think about at age 23," Wallace said. "They don't think about how important it is until something happens, and it's too late." Going without health insurance postgraduation may be nothing new for some UF students. Roughly 20 percent of UF students reported not having health insurance when a survey was taken a few years ago, said Dr. Phillip Barkley, director of the Student Health Care Center. Barldey said that number might have decreased since UF introduced GatorGradCare, a health plan that covers graduate students on teaching, research and graduate assistantships. The plan was started in January, according to the UF Human Resource Services Web site. "Going without health insurance at a young age is running a risk, but it's not the same risk as if you were 45." W. Bruce Vogel health-care economist It is common for younger students to be on their parents' plans, but as they get older they are more likely to be dropped, Barkley said. UF students are not required to carry health insurance, though it is available for purchase through Scarborough Company Insurance Inc. Risky business Opting out of health insurance may pose major risks for young Americans. Young adulthood is a high-risk period for unintended pregnancy sexually transmitted infections, substance abuse and injuries, according to a report from Perentage of U.S. Population Uninsured by Age Under 18 ,II % 18 119.5% 19 -24_ 1: :34.9% 25-29 r 3% 30 -34 LZ27.2% 351 :7 l 19.5% 55-64 71116% SOURCE: Agency for Health Care Statistics Rachel Greenfield / Alligator Staff GENERAL NUTRITION CENTERS 25%OFFany one GNC Product Cannot be com ined.

Additionally, an increasing number of young adultshave chronic medical conditions, the report states. "A catastrophic medical event can be financially devastating for young people without insurance," Barkley said. Plans still available There might be light at the end of the tunnel for uninsured students and recent graduates. Low-risk policies called catastrophic health insurance plans are available for people in good health. These plans might not cover doctors' visits but provide coverage in the event of a major medical procedure. A healthy young person could find a plan for as low as $60 to $80 dollars a month with a $1,000 to $2,000 deductible, said Howard Shapiro, executive vice president of Brown & Brown Insurance in Tallahassee. Shapiro also said short-term major medical plans are available at a low cost for young people who are between jobs. Shapiro said lack of insurance is more often due to irresponsibility in young people rather than unavailability. "If something happens and you are uninsured, you will pay it off for the rest of your life," Shapiro said.

More than 200 participants represented 18 different countries in Copa America UF, an annual soccer tournament presented by Hispanic Heritage Month 2007 and FOX Sports en Espafiol. Players settled their nations' rivalries by squaring off on the soccer field throughout the day. Most contenders played for the nations of their heritage, but it was not a requirement. Mexico won the tournament, beating Guatemala 4-3, but the event was as much cultural as it was competitive. "This is not just a Hispanic event. Soccer relates to all cultures." Melissa Nobles director of Copa America UF Melissa Nobles, the director of Copa America UF, said this year's tournament pulled in record numbers of participants. Non-Hispanic countries, including the United States, Haiti and Suriname, also participated. "This is not just a Hispanic event," she said. "Soccer relates to all cultures." Nobles said the event's slogan, "Different Roots, Same Passion," represents this diversity. "It's about individuals celebrating their culture," she said. "Through soccer, we can share and celebrate."

Sports MNAY, SEPTEMBER 24,2007 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org UF30 DUM24 UF FOOTBALL Free safety position a problem for Gators Alex iolyer / Aligator UF safety Major Wright tackles Mississippi's Shay Hodge in the second quarter of the Gators' 30-24 win against the. Rebels on Saturday in Oxford, Miss. By BRIAN STEELE Alligator Staff Writer bsteele@alligator.org Four weeks into the season, the UF football team is still Working out its starting free safety. Senior Kyle Jackson -who has struggled for much of the season and has been pulled from games due to poor play -is still the starter but continues to lose ground to freshman Major Wright. Whoever is back there, the job comes with lots of pressure. "That's the quarterback (of the defense), regardless of if it's fair or not," UF coach Urban Meyer said during his Sunday teleconference. "If you miss a tackle and you're a defensive end, the tackle or someone else helps you. That's part of the position you play. You miss a tackle in the backend, and that's a home run. Our free safety position has to be much better than it is right now." After watching Reggie Nelson patrol the backfield last season and lay punishing hits, fans want to see Wright, who is also known for his hitting ability. But Meyer won't increase the freshman's role until the coach feels he's ready. "There's a lot of people that say throw them out there and see how they do," Meyer said. "That's absolutely not the case. It's simply week-to-week. See how Major and Kyle played and compare the two." In defense of the secondary, the defensive line has struggled all season to get any pressure on SEE FOLLOW, PAGE 20 Running Tebow wild poses risks On Saturday, Tim Tebow picked up the Gators, placed them on his back and carried them to a win against Mississippi six yards at a time. With the clock winding down and UF clinging to a shm lead over the Rebels, Tebow rushed 11 times on the final two drives for five first downs. Tebow's runs up the middle led to a field goal, and he single-handedly ran off the last three minutes with straight-ahead plows. He finished with 166 yards on 27 carries, and both of those numbers set UF single-game records for a quarterback. I've watched Tebow break plenty of records at Nease High, and that's one that I'd rather not see. The sophomore accounted for more than half of the Gators' total rushing attempts, and he is their leading runner this season. Urban Meyer and the rest of the coaching staff have spent the better part of the last two years trying to persuade Tebow to abandon his reckless running style to prevent an injury, but what they are doing with him now may be even worse than letting him run over a linebacker on his way out of bounds. His upper body is much better equipped to handle contact than his legs are. Sending Tebow through the middle of opposing defenses on more than a quarter of the team's offensive plays is a dangerous gamble, Mike McCall McCall-in' It Like I See It mmccall@alligator.org and sooner or later UF's luck will run out. Every time he goes spinning through a jumble of linebackers and defensive linemen, Tebow's knees and ankles are very susceptible to injury, and believe it or not, he isn't invincible. Ponte Vedra Beach Nease High's coaching staff learned that quickly, as Tebow missed time in two seasons due to injury. During his senior year, Tebow suffered an ankle sprain after a quarterback sneak and missed three starts, playing sparingly off the bench in the third. He barely made it back in time to guide the Panthers to a state championship, something they couldn't have accomplished without him. In college, Tebow means even more to his team than he did in high school. If there is one part of the Gators' offense that can't be lost, even for one game, it's Tebow. Meyer knows this, and he acknowledged the danger of the play-calling after the game, saying that a quarterback should never have SEE MCCALL-IN'; PAGE 20 Rebels shred secondary -By BRYAN JONES Alligator Staff Writer bjones@alligator.org OXFORD, Miss. -UF's inconsistency on defense was glaring Saturday against Mississippi, and Coach Urban Meyer has become concerned. The third-year coach said the unit's deficiencies start with the pass rush, and correcting the issue has become an urgent priority. "That's going to cost us a game," Meyer said. "I never see their quarterback get hit, and that's a problem." At times, the UF defense dominated the Rebels the way it expected to. But with the pass rush disappearing for much of the game, Mississippi took advantage of an inexperienced defensive backfield. "We have a young secondary that got exposed today," Meyer said. Mississippi quarterback Seth Adams torched the Gators for 302 yards through the air, including two touchdowns. The third quarter was particularly troubling. Sophomore cornerback Wondy Pierre-Louis got beat -on a 51-yard reception by Mississippi receiver Michael Hicks, which brought the Rebels to the UF five-yard line, setting up a field goal. On the Rebels' next possession, Adams connected with receiver Shay Hodge on threeGators straight plays totaling Defense 48 yards. On the third reception, UF free safety Kyle Jackson made an ill-advised attempt to jump the route and intercept the pass. Jackson's lunge didn't even come close, and Hodge walked into the end zone. One drive later, receiver Mike Wallace got behind the secondary and Adams found him for a 77-yard SEE DEFENSE, PAGE 20 NFL 3 St. Louis Tampa Bay NFL Jacksonville 3 24 24 Denver 13 *NFL: Tennessee at New Orleans ESPN, 8:30 p.m. M Rugby World Cup: New Zealand vs. Scotland VS., 6 p.m. UF Kentucky Georgia South Carolina Vanderbilt 2-0 1-0 1-1 1-1 1-1 Tennessee .0-1 M 1988: Running back Emmitt Smith rushes for a UF-record 96-yard touchdown run against Mississippi State.

By PHIL KEGLER Alligator Writer Trailing No. 22 LSU 24-21, in danger of going to a decisive fifth game, the Gators turned to what they know best -outside hitter Marcie Hampton. The senior responded, tallying five of her 20 kills as UF scored nine straight points to win the match 3-1 (30-25, 30-24, 27-30, 30-24). The Tigers (11-2, 3-1 Southeastern Conference) looked poised to push the match to the limit after making an 8-0 run in game four. A pair of 4-0 runs helped dose the gap before the No. 6 Gators (11-0, 4-0 SEC) went on their deciding streak to finish off a weekend road sweep. In a match filled with highly contested calls, UF coach Mary Wise didn't mind two disputable LSU double hits during the matchending run. "You're not supposed to get breaks on the road," Wise said. "I think we did get two big-time breaks late in game four. I'm not sure that either of those calls should've gone our way and they did." Sunday's match featured both SEC division leaders, and the Gators looked to both old and new to carry them. Senior middle blocker Kisya Killingsworth had a big day, totaling 14 kills and four blocks with a team-high .385 hitting efficiency. Killingsworth scored her 1,000th career kill, and it couldn't have come at a better time. LSU had taken a 20-19 lead late in game one, when Killingsworth reached Meyer concerned with high number of carries for quarterback FOOTBALL, from page 1 said. With the lead cut to 27-24, the returning national championship players -led by Tebow -would come to the rescue. Senior safety Tony Joiner had a key fourthquarter interception and sophomore wideout Percy Harvin had a game-high 11 catches for 121 yards. Mississippi played eight and nine men in pass coverage, shutting off deep passes and forcing Tebow to throw dinks and dunks and pull it down and run. Meyer said Tebow would ideally take about 10 carries per game, and he worried about overusing his prized quarterback. "We have to be very careful Fo all with the Tebow thing," Meyer said. "That's a crutch." If the Gators thought Saturday was tough, what's coming could be downright scary.

UF would not trail again en route to taking the first game. Wise made a key lineup change late in game one, substituting freshman Callie Rivers, daughter of Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers, for a struggling Janine Williams. Williams had no kills and one error on four attacks and would not re-enter the match. Rivers made an immediate impact, scoring a kill and a block by the end of the game and would stay in the rotation for the rest of the match, starting the remaining three games. She -tallied nine kills along the way, one off her career high. Before Sunday, Rivers had seen action in only 15 of 34 games, most of which was for short periods. "Callie's a competitor," Wise said. "You could just look in her eyes, before this match -she wanted to play. She's taken the best use of this opportunity." Wise's decision may have been foreshadowed in Friday's match against Mississippi (12-3, 2-2 SEC) when Rivers played in all three games and recorded four kills in the victory. UF swept Mississippi for the 17th-straight time. Hampton led the team with 13 kills, but it was Killingsworth who stormed out of the gate, tallying five of her eight kills in game one. "It was almost as if the student section kind of kicked Kisya into another gear," Wise said. "The look on her face -she came to play." Radio and television broadcasts contributed to this report.

20, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 24,2007 UFSOCCER I UF nets ties against unranked foes By DANNY KLEIN Alligator Writer At this point, the UF soccer team's problems are becoming trends, and games that should be wins are turning into missed opportunities. On Sunday, the No. 12 Gators (4-2-2) finished the weekend the same way they start*a it, with a tie to an unranked team. Heading to Nebraska in a rare homeaway split weekend, the Gators and the Cornhuskers (3-2-3) took 110 minutes to put a 1-1 tie in the books. UF started the weekend with a draw against Florida Atlantic in a scoreless match Friday night. The Gators and Owls agreed to call the game following regulation due to poor weather conditions. The double-overtime tie in Lincoln, Neb., came in front of a crowd of 465 and represented the Gators' first overtime contest of the season. The Cornhuskers applied pressure early on, out-shooting the Gators 10-3 in the opening 45 minutes. "It was just a misplayed goal." Becky Burleigh UF soccer coach The second half began on a sour note for the Gators, when a free kick from 35 yards out by Nebraska's Selenia Iacchelli slipped through UF goalkeeper Katie Fraine's hands for a goal. "It was just a misplayed goal," UF coach Becky Burleigh said. "It's not like we were doing anything poor on defense, it was only a minute into the half. But I don't think anyone put their head down. We just recovered and began to put all sorts of pressure on them." The embarrassing score served as a turning point for the Gators. In the 65th minute, forward Stacy Bishop connected on a free kick from defender Lauren Hyde, heading the ball into the back of the net. The rest of the game featured a slew of near misses for the Gators, including a heartbreaker by forward Ashley Harris in the 96th minute, when she was able to beat the goalie before Nebraska's Carly Peetz slid to knock the ball away only inches before it crossed the plane. The Gators received a final chance in the 107th minute, when Bishop's fifth shot of the game sailed over the net. "Today was a much different feel than Friday," Burleigh said. "Even though I know the result was the same. I felt a lot better about the way we played today than Friday. I felt like we outplayed Nebraska, the result just wasn't there." Meyer: Lack of depth in secondary leaves few options With inexperience and inju, from page 17 ries plaguing the UF secondary, Meyer said he doesn't have the depth to make full-scale lineup touchdown that brought the changes wlien players aren't Rebels to within three points at performing well. 27-24. "There are no choices right "It was pretty good covernow," Meyer said. "You've got age," said UF cornerback Joe what you got." Haden, who was defending Jackson, a senior, was Wallace on the play. "It was just, benched in the first half against when the ball went in the air, he Tennessee and his struggles accelerated. forced Meyer to consider pull"He's one of the fastest kids ing his starting job in favor of I've ever seen." true freshman Major Wright. MCCALL-IN from page 17 as many carries in a game as Tebow had. The problem is that Meyer hasn't been given a reason not to run Tebow. He almost never fails to pick up the necessary yards, and he seems to be the most reliable option. What baffles me is the reluctance to hand the ball to Kestahn Moore, the starting running back whom Meyer has repeatedly called a trustworthy player. Moore struggled to hold on to the ball last year, prompting me to name him American Heart Association WE'RE FIGHTING FOR YOUR LIFE F Strong safety Tony Joiner, Jackson's best friend, was vis-' ibly upset when asked about Jackson's confidence following the game. "I think his confidence is still the same," Joiner Fo tall said. "There's not really anything I see for his confidence to be lower. I'm going to talk to him again on the bus, and that's about it." But while the Gators were Kestahn "nobody fumbles" Moore. He has since shed that moniker and become a consistent performer, averaging more than five yards per carry with no fumbles on 53 attempts. However, with the game in jeopardy, Tebow seizes control of the running duties. Whether this is because Meyer doesn't actually trust his backs or because Tebow insists upon it, it carries a risk that could end UF's title hopes in a snap, crackle or pop. This isn't to say that they should play scared. The moment they begin calling plays just to avoid an injury, the offense will become less productive.

They allowed 80 yards and no touchdowns on the ground, holding Green-Ellis to just 37 yards. "Our linebackers and our Dlineman are playing phenomenal (against the run) right now," Joiner said. "When everything is put together, we are going to have a great defense." Meyer and his staff can and will do whatever they have to in order to win, and with games against top Southeastern Conference foes looming, they'll want the ball in safe hands. No matter what, every time Tebow goes to the ground, the collective breath of Gator Nation will be held. Perhaps the day will never come when Tebow hobbles off the field to polite applause, but I think Meyer and his fans would agree that they have to minimize the chances of that happening. The easiest way to do this is to let the running backs do some running.

The Gators have seven sacks through four games. "They're tied together," said Meyer of the coverage and pass rush struggles. When your defensive backs are playing well, it's usually correlating with a great pass rush. I think it's somewhat tied, but you can't use that as an excuse.' SHARE THE LOVE: Standout sophomore Percy Harvin stole the show Saturday with 121 receiving yards and a touchdown -and he had several runs called back due to penalties -but Meyer knows he has more than just Harvin at his disposal. "[Jarred] Fayson was wide open and we didn't get him the ball," Meyer said. "[Cornelius Ingram] is very involved in our offense and had a couple catches. I think we went a little conservative." GAME TIME: UF announced that this weekend's home game against Auburn will start at 8 p.m. and be televised on ESPN. ETC: Meyer said running back Kestahn Moore's shoulder was a little "dinged up," but that he would be fine for this weekend. He also said wideout Riley Cooper should return, and he also hopes to have Andre Caldwell back. -----
