First-day voter turnout average despite rain

U MORE THAN 3,000 STUDENTS VOTED IN SG'S
FALL ELECTION TUESDAY.

By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Alligator Writer
dculclasure@aligator.org

Tuesday's rainy weather may have drenched candi-
dates campaigning during the first day of the Student
Government election, but it didn't completely deter
students from voting.
Sarah Krantz, SG's supervisor of. elections, said
3,253 students voted, which was similar to the turnout
for the first day of voting in the last few elections, she
said.
Yooni Yi, Gator Party president, said before she
heard the turnout results, she thought the inclement
weather would drive voter turnout down.-
After hearing the results, Yi said she was surprised.
"I'm happy that students came out and voted, but
there's still room for improvement," she said. "It gives
us so much more credibility toward the administration
when more students vote."
Joseph Trimboli, Progress Party president, said the
weather hit his party hard, but he was also pleasantly
surprised with the turnout.
"There jist wasn't that much campaigning going on
all around because of the rain," Trimboli said.
Yi said she probably wouldn't be happy until the
turnout was 50,000.
Despite the weather, Yi said she was pleased
with the first day of elections, describing the day as
"smooth sailing." Scott Robertson / Alligator Staff

STUDENT LIFE

Students make time for TV


By HILARY LEHMAN
Alligator Writer

Last week, a traditional fall diversion
arrived to tempt students from their
books.
TV premiere week found students
making adjustments to fit new seasons of
popular shows such as "Grey's Anatomy"
and "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,"
into their schedules.
Katie Privett, a UF sophomore, said
she religiously watches "Supernatural"
and "Smallville" on Thursday nights and
keeps up with "House" and "The Office"
on a less-regular basis.
TV is a definite factor in her schedule,
she said. She arranged her classes for the
fall in order to have Thursday evenings
free to watch her favorite shows.
Since the fall TV season has started,

she said, she's beginning to make adjust-
ments to fit in her TV viewing, which she
estimated is about five to six hours per
week.

"Supernatural" and "Smallville" run

Police investigate UF teaching assistant's death


By ILEANA MORALES
Alligator Writer
imorales@alligator.org

A UF physics teaching assistant
died Sept. 21, said Alachua County
Sheriff's Office spokesman Sgt.
Keith Faulk.
Faulk said Wayne Bomstad, a
31-year-old UF physics graduate


student, probably committed sui-
cide, but the sheriff's office is still
conducting an investigation.
An incident report from the office
states that the death was alcohol-re-
lated.
Faulk declined to comment fur-
ther on the investigation.
Steve Orlando, UF spokesman,
said Bomstad's mother, Henrietta


"He was always really
happy and joked around."
Chelsea Huff
UF chemistry junior

Shuminsky, informed the physics
department of Bomstad's death.
Alan Dorsey, chair of the de-


apartment, informed the counseling
center and asked that counselors tell
Bomstad's students.
On Sept. 25, two counselors told
students in Bomstad's Physics I
with Calculus discussion class and
offered to help students cope with
the news.
Chelsea Huff, a chemistry junior
in Bomstad's discussion class, said


some students cried.
"He was always really happy
and joked around," Huff said. "Even
the way he signed his e-mails: 'your
friendly neighborhood T.A.'"
In 2006, Bomstad was one of five
UF physics teaching assistants who
received the Outstanding Teaching
Assistant Award from the American
Association of Physics Teachers.


Alachua County vets offer free vaccinations for dogs


* THE TREATMENT WILL BE
OFFERED UNTIL NOV. 23.

By JENNIFER BINGAMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

In the past five months, Alachua
County has had an outbreak of a se-
rious virus that affects dogs.
However, there is free treatment.
The Alachua County Veterinary
Medical Association is provid-


ing free distemper vaccinations to
spayed and neutered dogs until
Nov. 23.
Distemper is a virus that affects
mostly puppies and stray dogs, said
Denise Seufert, a veterinarian at the
Butler Plaza Animal Hospital.
The virus begins as a runny nose
and cough, according to a press
release about the free vaccination
program. It can eventually lead to
pneumonia, seizures and possible
death.


Seufert said her practice partici-
pates in the program.
Once the disease advances, dogs
"walk almost like
Around they are drunk,
Gairunesville like they don't
have any control
over their legs,"
Seufert said.
Her animal hospital has already
given out 121 vaccinations since the
free program began on Sept. 23, she
said.


"I don't know if this will ever be
repeated, because to my knowledge
we have never had a distemper out-
break like this in 15 years," Seufert
said.
Because the virus spreads so eas-
ily, Alachua County Animal Shelter
has had to euthanize about 130 pup-
pies and 470 adult dogs since June
that appeared to have the beginning
stages of distemper, she said.
"Just like you or I, when we
cough or sneeze, it can spread sev-


eral feet," Seufert said.
The motivation behind the dis-
counted pet services came from a
California-based organization called
Maddie's Fund. The organization
provides grants to animal shelters
that promote a no-kill philosophy.
Because the vaccination only
works to boost a dog's immune
system and does not eliminate the
virus, Seufert said it is important
to get dogs vaccinated as soon as
possible.

UF group uses art for healing


By HANNA THOMPSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

A new student organization
will use personal art to connect
with patients and caregivers in
Africa and European countries
such as France, Portugal and
Germany.
Jill Sonke-Henderson, a UF
theater and dance faculty mem-
ber, came to Zarabeth Golden,
a neuroscience and painting
junior, with the idea for the
International Fine Arts and
Healing Student Organization.
Golden, president of IFAH,
said the purpose is to expose
students to the universe of arts
and medicine.
"Many students at UF have
their own art and want to be
able to use that art to help
people," Golden said.
Twelve students will travel
to Gambia in West Africa during
spring break, along with three
nurses and two faculty mem-
bers, said Sonke-Henderson,


the IFAH faculty adviser.
"We will take groups to the
rural villages in Banjul and
a subset of the group will do
performances on malaria pre-
vention for the community,"
she said.
"Many students at UF
have their own art and
want to be able to use
that art to help people."
Zarabeth Golden
IFAH president

Sonke-Henderson will also
teach the History of Arts and
Healing in Europe and the U.S.,
a two-credit class that will take
20 IFAH members to Strasbourg,
France for Summer A.
Students will work with
five hospitals in and around
Strasbourg, Sonke-Henderson
said.
Three community-service
hours are also required each


week, in which students can
choose to work in senior facili-
ties, school programs or com-
munity performances, she said.
In preparation for the trip,
French classes are required once
a week throughout October. The
IFAH members will also volun-
teer at Shands to train for the
work they will be doing abroad,
Sonke-Henderson said.
"They will go through orien-
tations and then be mentored
by the residents artists in the
Arts in Medicine program,"
she said.
IFAH will work all year to
raise money for travel fees and
learn how to use the creative
arts for healing, according to
the Web site.
"We are going to have bake
sales, car washes, sell arts and
crafts gift sets," Golden said.
"Anything we can think of."
The club is now planning to
host an art auction that allows
Gainesville and student artists
to donate their work to be sold.

Editorial


Wasted Time

Outgoing senators don't

make the grade
s another Student Senate term comes to a dose, we just
have to ask (to paraphrase Janet Jackson): What have
you done for us lately?
The answer seems to be: Not much.
In fact, the only thing we've seen Student Government do
this semester was get credit cards accepted at eateries across
campus oh, wait. That was mostly thanks to Student Body
President Ryan Moseley.
We're not saying the Senate hasn't been doing its job. We're
sure it's going through all the motions, passing all the resolu-
tions and practicing its circumlocutions. But where is the in-
novation? Where are the "tangible" benefits the Gator Party
promised last semester, when Gator won all but one seat in the
Senate?
This doesn't give us much hope for the Gator senators who
might win seats in this semester's election.
For up to half of the Senate members (probably less, assum-
ing incumbents retain some seats), this week is the end of their
terms. Next week the torches will be passed to fresh-faced stu-
dent senators, who will be announced after the, election votes
are tallied tonight.
We can only hope the next class accomplishes more.
It is the Student Senate's job not just Ryan Moseley's to
come up with idea"that will better the student body and then
work to make those ideas a reality. While the Senate should
work to accomplish as many of the platform goals as is feasible
- and it has worked toward several already it cannot judge
its success solely on that.
So for the senators-to-be: You're signing up for this job, pre-
sumably, because you want to make UF a better place. Because
you want to gain experience. Because you want to say, "When I
was in college, I made a difference."
Prove it.


No Excuses


We can understand
if you didn't vote
Tuesday. We'd be
lying if we said we never
used the rain as an excuse
to skip classes, including
Tuesday.
We can understand if
you didn't vote Tuesday.
You weren't sure where to
go. Or you left your Gator 1
Card at home. Luckily, you
can look for signs around
campus, or check out the
Student Government Web

We can understand if
you didn't vote Tuesday.
You hadn't heard enough
about the issues. You
wanted to have a few more
candidates attack you
on Turlington Plaza. You
wanted to see if today's
Alligator would have any
new information about the
candidates or the parties.


Well, you've got the paper.
You've got the Alligator's
Web site for old articles and
editorials. You've got fli-
ers from both parties. Not
much more we- can do on
this front.
We can understand if
you didn't vote Tuesday.
You were too busy with
midterms, papers and the
like. School work got in the
way. But voting only takes
a few minutes. Surely you
can do it before, in between
or after classes.
We can understand if
you didn't vote Tuesday.
We're college students
- procrastination is our
leading tactic.
Well, the deadline is
here. Get to the polls.
We can understand if
you didn't vote Tuesday.
But what's your excuse for
not voting today?

Fundraising campaign comes at a price


The advent of the Florida Tomorrow campaign is a
great chance for UF to address its cash concerns
but only if done properly.
Even though it looks innocent enough, this campaign
has a dark side, primarily the fattening of UF's endow-
ment.
An endowment is a college's version of a savings ac-
count. It is money that can be invested in various ventures
to increase its value. The endowment is a rough measure
of a college's prestige, as more money allows a univer-
sity to do more things. It is no coincidence that Harvard
University is America's richest, with a piggybank nearing
the $30 billion mark, according to U.S. News & World
Report.
The past several years, UF's endowment has come just
shy of the $1 billion mark. By comparison, the University
of California-Los Angeles has about $2.9 billion, the
University of Michigan-Ann Arbor has about $5.6 billion
and the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill has
about $1.7 billion. Even the University of California-Davis
has about $1.3 billion.
If UF President Bernie Machen gets his way, UF's
campaign will increase UF's endowment to more than $2
billion, putting UF on par with other top schools. This is
not bad in theory. After all, that extra money can do a lot
of good things for students and faculty.
Notice that in U.S. News' public university rankings,
the four state schools I just mentioned rank third, third
(they're tied), fifth and 11th, respectively. UF is ranked
17th. Could this campaign be merely a front for a ratings
boost?
Even though Machen has mentioned that this cam-
paign is not directly aimed at UF's cash problem, it is also
odd that he did not mention anything about paying for


UF's multimillion-dollar budget
deficit.
If UF raised $1.5 billion, offset-
ting this year's plan to cut $34 mil-
lion from the budget would cost
about 2 cents per dollar.
Vincent GaglianO It would address the issue of
letters@alligator.org staffing enough classes for every-
one. It would put a stop to UF's
hiring freeze and provide more fi-
nancial incentives for professors. But most of all, it would
do all of these things without having to raise tuition or
compromise Bright Futures.
In addition, raising the money for a big endowment is
only half of the problem. The money from an endowment
must be invested so it grows over time. If the money were
squandered away in a matter of years, UF would have
achieved nothing.
How Machen handles the campaign after five years
have passed will be a defining aspect of his time at UF.
Managing success is one of the best tests of leadership,
and Machen will be tested a lot.
Just ask Billy Donovan, who led five NBA prospects
and their egos to a second national championship.
In all fairness, the campaign is oriented toward aca-
demics. The UF administration has tried going before a
tax-unhappy Republican governor a Florida State
University alumnus, no less, to no avail.
But before we spend five years trying to raise massive
amounts of money, we must do it for the right reasons. We
are THE University of Florida, so we must serve the best
interests of students and teachers.

Letters to the Editor
Student-run cafe would be SG-funded
It is reassuring to see that the Alligator
editorial board appreciates the ideas
behind the student-run cafe a non-cor-
porate, nonprofit, student-run space that
serves cafe-style food and beverages at cost
to consumers.
What's less reassuring is the horrible
job the editorial board did formulating its
opinions, which have consistently been off
the mark, about the cafe. If it had actually
taken the time to read the referendum, it
would have seen that the student-run cafe
would ask Student Government, not UF, to
provide the start-up costs for the cafe. ,
With the money spent bringing one
speaker to this school, we could fund a stu-
dent-run cafe on campus serving high-end
organic and fair-trade drinks on the cheap.
If you think it's about time Starbucks'
monopoly on campus ended, and if you
recognize the value of a nonprofit student-
run cafe, you need to vote "yes" for this.
Maybe now that the Alligator has all the
facts about this referendum, it will apolo-
gize for misleading its readers about it.

Experience not necessary to critique
I'm sure Kyle Cox hasn't done a lot of
things in his life, as I haven't either. But
to say that you cannot criticize someone
because of never doing those things is
* ridiculous.
Charlie Weis is the University of Notre
Dame's head coach, and he deserves the
heat he is under. When the United States
heads to war, can we say the president is
doing a horrible job and that we have no
right going? Of course not, because we've
never been a president.
What about CNN and Fox News and
all those news channels constantly talking
about people's decisions? Should they be
taken off the air because they are not letting
people do their jobs?
Cox's argument is fundamentally
flawed. Just because I've never been a
football head coach doesn't mean I can't
see how horrible of a coach Charlie Weis is.
And I think it's funny that Cox invites me
to try out for football. I don't understand
the logic here: Do I have to do and be ev-
erything in life in order to have an opinion
of it? No. Let me say what I want.

homework in the afternoon if I
know that I want to watch TV at

Vanessa Vinas, a UF sopho-
more, said she doesn't have much
time for TV, but she makes an effort
to fit a few shows in.
She left lab work early last week
to watch the "Grey's Anatomy"
season premiere, she said.
"I try to make room for it in my
schedule," she said. "It's not like
I'm going to ditch a test to watch
TV, but I make a bigger effort to
schedule it in."


Privett and Vinas aren't the only
students pushing aside the books
for a few hours of TV. College
students are increasingly acknowl-
edged as an important consumer
group for TV shows.

Nielsen Media Research an-
nounced in January that it would
begin factoring college students
living away from home into its
ratings.


According to a press release
from Nielsen, the impact on rat-
ings from college student viewing
among women was greatest for
prime-time dramas with strong
female characters, while male stu-
dents increase ratings for football
and animation programming.
Frank Selb, a UF biochemistry
and molecular biology junior, said
in his apartment, the TV is gener-
ally on all day.
Selb said he and his roommates,
all of whom are men, "aren't re-
ally into the new fall schedule,"
but that his roommate did skip a
Campus Crusade for Christ meet-
ing last week to catch "The Office"
premiere.

a concern

NOTES, from page 16

"I think in his heart he
wasn't trying to do anything
wrong, so I think he should
(play), yeah," Tebow said.
Meyer said he was con-
cerned the news would distract
the Gators as they prepare
for their matchup against the
Tigers, but
he didn't
sense a lack
of focus at
Ss practice.
"These
guys are
all fam-
Tebow ily," Meyer
said. "Any time someone has
a situation, that distracts the
family."

SHOOTING UPDATE: Meyer
said he is very worried about
his team's nighttime activities
after three football players were
interviewed about a shooting
early Sunday morning.
Tight end Aaron Hernandez
and two other current Gators
yet to be identified were among
several people interviewed by
police, according to reports
from the Orlando Sentinel.
;.Although the players are not
suspects in the case, Meyer said
he wasn't overly happy that his
players were out at 2 a.m.
"I mean, I know college
kids do stuff," Meyer said. "I'd
rather not do that after games,
but I'm not a police officer, ei-
ther, so I can't lock them down
completely."

in games following losses


MEYER, from page 16


chomp while the Gators hung
their heads or stared into space.
Meyer remembered other
special teams lapses, a thought-
less roughing the kicker penalty,
a missed field goal by Joey Ijjas
and a fake punt for a first down
brought back by a pre-snap
penalty.
Since he coaches the special
teams, Meyer blamed himself
for the loss.
"You don't get angry at play-
ers, you coach players," Meyer
said. "So I'm angry at myself and
angry at our staff ... We've got to
finish the job."
He took the fall for freshman
punter Chas Henry failing to line
up on the line of scrimmage on
the fake and for Jamar Hornsby
running into the punter. The
good news is that all of that is
correctable.
"We're not putting our caps
on backwards for rally caps or
turning them inside out," Meyer
said. "We have to get better."
Judging by history, they prob-
ably will improve and quickly
Meyer's impeccable record in
more than six years of coaching
includes a 10-1 mark in games
after losses.
That gives No. 9 UF (4-1,
2-1 Southeastern Conference)
the confidence needed to trust
Meyer's change in tactics. .

see someone who handles los-
ing, handles adversity really

Meyer has not lost two in a
row since 2002 at Bowling Green,
and he has never lost three
straight.
But this is top-ranked LSU, a
team bent for revenge to make
up for losing in Gainesville last
year.
The last time the Gators trav-
eled to Baton Rouge, a 21-17 loss
in 2005, Meyer left wiping away
tears after a heart-tugging post-
game press conference.
"It was emo-
tional for all of
us," Joiner said.
"It meant a lot
Football to see our coach
actually show
emotion about a game we lost,
the same emotion we showed.
... It kind of helped us, knowing
that he's in it with us."
Meyer had the luxury of bye
weeks following his last three
losses at UF. After the Auburn
loss in 2006, the Gators re-
grouped to defeat Georgia.
The same thing happened in
2005, when the Gators topped
the Bulldogs after the LSU loss.
Later that year, Meyer and
the Gators dominated Florida
State 34-7 after getting upset by
Steve Spurrier's South Carolina
Gamecocks.
Can the Gators do it again?
Having Meyer at the helm cer-
tainly gives them a chance. -

ing to comment? It's their right to stay silent,
but why not talk if it isn't a concern?
The Gators got through the Marcus Thomas
ordeal last season, but that was a veteran team.
This is a young, impressionable team.
Maybe Joiner didn't go to the impound
looking to steal the car back, but his decision
to go there at that time may have just cost the
Gators a chance at a national championship.
Because if Joiner doesn't play, that defense is
a sitting duck.

UF VOLLEYBALL


McGinnis one of many Gators rewriting history books


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Writer

Angie McGinnis may be a
stellar setter, but when it comes
to setting records, she's a little
oblivious.
The senior setter needs only
16 assists to become UF's all-
time assist leader, breaking Heidi
Anderson's 15-year-old record.
When asked about it Tuesday,
McGinnis said she didn't even
know she was close to breaking
the record.
The senior laughed as she ac-
knowledged it would be pretty
bad for her team if she didn't
break the record this weekend,
considering she has averaged
41.6 assists per match so far this
season.
"That's a pretty awesome ac-
complishment," McGinnis said.
"But I mean, getting a chance to
play for a great volleyball team
and getting a chance to start all
four years is the only reason that
that's happening."


McGinnis knows she's come a
long way from her freshman year,
and as she looks to dish out her
4,856th assist, she attributes most
of the change to boosts in strength
and confidence.
"I didn't have the strength to
push the ball from one side of
the court to the other my fresh-
man year necessarily," McGinnis
said. "And now I'm much more
confident with it. I do a lot more,
like taking a look at the other
team's blocks and trying to get
our hitters one-on-one. I've kind
of gone from a good set my fresh-
man year to making all my sets
good, to making them tricky and
taking the other team out of their
offense."
Considering the differences
in play back then points were
only scored on serve, which made
for longer games and therefore
more assists UF coach Mary
Wise is impressed McGinnis has
closed in on the mark.
"It's amazing that was a
statistic that was earned back in


side-out scoring," Wise said. "The
game has changed in rally scor-
ing. I wasn't sure when Heidi set
it that it would ever be broken. So
to not only break it, but break it
in rally scoring tells you just what
a great setter that Angie has been
for our program."
"As Elyse plays, so goes
our team."
Mary Wise
UF volleyball coach

McGinnis isn't the only UF
player rewriting the history
books.
Elyse Cusack became the
first player in Southeastern
Conference history to win back-
to-back Defensive Player of the
Week awards.
The award is Cusack's seventh
league honor in just her second
season, including five Defensive
Player of The Week awards and
two Freshman Player of the Week
honors.


The five defensive accolades
are also the most by one player
since the league began naming
the award in 2003.
The sophomore libero contrib-
uted a season-high 29 digs against
Alabama on Sunday.
Wise knows Cusack's presence
on the floor influences a match
immensely.
"As Elyse plays, so goes our
team," Wise said. "When she
took her game to another level
at Alabama, so did our team. She
has the ability to really change an
entire match. She's so good that
other teams have to really work
hard in their entire offensive
scheme on how to keep balls away
from her."
Kisya Killingsworth continues
UF's record-setting trend.
The senior middle blocker
recorded her 1,000th kill against
LSU on Sept. 23.
That made her the 15th player
in school history to hit the millen-
nium mark.
With fellow senior Marcie


Hampton already above the
achievement, it marks the fifth
time in UF history that-1he team
has had two players on the roster
with 1,000 kills.
Not only has Killingsworth
dominated in kills, but the senior
also tallied her 300th career block
Sunday against Alabama. She
became the fifth player in school
history to have 1,000 kills and 300
blocks. *r*
Wise noted the special nature
of Killingsworth's versatility.
"None of those others had
to do it at multiple positions,"
Wise said. "Her ability to do that
playing three different positions
- what a great athlete Kisya is
and has been."
Despite all the milestones be-
ing passed, Killingsworth said the
team doesn't focus too much on
the individual achievements.
"I think it's awesome but ...
we'll have bigger things to cel-
ebrate," Killingsworth said. "Like
if we win a national champion-
ship."

Coach stays


mum about


safety's arrest

E URBAN MEYER IS WAITING TO LEARN
MORE BEFORE COMMENTING.

By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
jmarina@alligator.org

UF coach Urban Meyer was tight-lipped about
senior safety Tony Joiner's arrest on charges of bur-
glary Tuesday morning.
Meyer, Who was "disappointed" when he heard
the news, said he's still evaluating the incident and
won't comment until he knows more because it's
not fair to the people involved.
"I don't know the whole story, yet," Meyer said
after Tuesday's practice.
"I'm still getting information like a lot of people
are."
Meyer said he would probably find out more
details later Tuesday night, and until he does, he
refuses to comment candidly about it.
Joiner did not practice Tuesday, and Meyer said
it will remain that way until the coach finds out
everything about the situation.
Joiner, who is a member of the leadership com-
mittee and was voted in as a captain, has totaled 20
tackles, one interception and one pass breakup for
the season.
Quarterback Tim Tebow, Joiner's roommate,
said he was asleep when the safety was arrested
and feels the captian shouldn't be benched for the
LSU game Saturday. Alex Kolyer / Alligator

UF FOOTBALL

Meyer buckles down after Auburn loss


By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
nzaccardi@alligator.org

After UF's heartbreaking loss to Auburn
on Saturday, something had to change.
In an intense, impromptu team meet-
ing, UF coach Urban Meyer set the record
straight Monday morning.
Simply put, no more Mr. Nice Guy.
"You can kind of say he's a lot more
strict now in everything he's doing,"
said senior strong safety Tony Joiner on
Monday, less than 24 hours before he was
arrested on burglary charges. "He's not
playing around anymore."
Joiner elaborated, saying Meyer has re-
verted back to his tough-guy attitude.


He's back to being a disciplinarian and a
detail-oriented coach.
No more turning the other cheek when
players miss a class or two, or in practice
when players take a few plays off.
"Every human being is mea-
sured when they get hit."
Urban Meyer
UF football coach

Meyer's challenge is to fix mistakes,
including his own, regroup his young team
and come to play Saturday in the backyard
of the No. 1 team in the country, LSU.
"Every human being is measured when
they get hit," Meyer said about the 20-17


last-second loss to Auburn, Meyer's first
home loss at UF. "We got hit.square. That
was a frontal, frontal shot at home."
After losses, Meyer speaks softer and in
shorter sentences. Reporters inch closer to
him to hear his answers.
Players reflect his attitude.
"We all feel the same way he does," de-
fensive tackle Clint McMillan said. "It feels
like you got stabbed in the gut after you
lose a game like that in the last seconds."
The scene Saturday featured Auburn
freshman kicker Wes Byrum, a Florida
native, burying the Gators with a 43-yard
field goal as time expired.
Byrum ran around doing a Gator

isten closely. You hear that noise off
in the distance?
It's LSU quarterbacks Matt Flynn
and Ryan Perrilloux laughing.
In case you somehow didn't see the
front page of the newspaper, UF senior
safety and team captain Tony Joiner was
arrested and charged with burglary early
Tuesday morning after trying to take his
girlfriend's towed car from an impound
lot.
Later on Tuesday the owner of the
property, Stan
Forron, said the
whole thing was a
misunderstanding
I, and wanted the
charges dropped.
Forron said Joiner
Brian Steele had made plans to
Steele-ing Bases pick up the car and
bsteele@alligator.org that's why the gate
was open, but no-
body was there to meet up with Joiner.
No matter what the truth is, Joiner
shouldn't have been there at 4:30 in the
morning.
So, Gators fans, if you were sick to your
stomach watching Auburn's Brandon Cox
pick apart the secondary, you better break
out the Pepto-Bismol.
If Joiner doesn't play this weekend,
you'll be on the verge of a stomach ulcer.
No offense to Major Wright, Joe Haden
and Wondy Pierre-Louis, but UF's pass
defense is a mess without Joiner.
These young pups have huge ceilings
and'laudable work ethics, but their play
just hasn't been consistent. They've all
made some great plays, but that becomes
a whole lot more difficult without their
senior captain.
LSU standout receiver Early Doucet

you know he's not going to miss this one

secondary.
As if the game against No. 1 LSU hasn't
already lost some of its edge with the
Auburn loss, the Joiner arrest may have
just put the final dagger in it.
In a week where we should be debating
whether LSU's defense can stop UF's of-

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 3, 2007 First-day voter turnout average despite rain U MORE THAN 3,000 STUDENTS VOTED IN SG'S FALL ELECTION TUESDAY. By DEVIN CULCLASURE Alligator Writer dculclasure@alligator.org Tuesday's rainy weather may have drenched candidates campaigning during the first day of the Student Government election, but it didn't completely deter students from voting. Sarah Krantz, SG's supervisor of elections, said 3,253 students voted, which was similar to the turnout for the first day of voting in the last few elections, she said. Yooni Yi, Gator Party president, said before she heard the turnout results, she thought the inclement weather would drive voter turnout down. After hearing the results, Yi said she was surprised. "I'm happy that students came out and voted, but there's still room for improvement," she said. "It gives us so much more credibility toward the administration when more students vote." Joseph Trimboli, Progress Party president, said the weather hit his party hard, but he was also pleasantly surprised with the turnout. "There just wasn't that much campaigning going on all around because of the rain," Trimboli said. Yi said she probably wouldn't be happy until the turnout was 50,000. Despite the weather, Yi said she was pleased with the first day of elections, describing the day as "smooth sailing."

"Tony" Joiner was arrested and charged with burglary early Tuesday. Joiner pushed open a heavy electronic gate at about 4:30 a.m. to take his girlfriend's car out of Watson's Towing without paying the $76 tow fee, according to an arrest report. Joiner was released at 1:17 p.m. Tuesday, according to Alachua County Jail records. He was released on his own recognizance, which means he left without posting bail but will return to face charges. Stan Forron, property manager fpr the lot, said Joiner was supposed to be there to pick up the car and it wasn't a burglary. "It was a miscommunication," he said. However, Gainesville Police Local Department spokesman Lt. News Keith Kameg said there had been no miscommunication. It's up to the courts now to decide his exact charges, Kameg said. Joiner said he intended to pay the tow bill but got impatient, according to the arrest report. Alligator Staff Writer Andrew Tan contributed to this report. STUDENT LIFE Students make time for TV By HILARY LEHMAN Alligator Writer Last week, a traditional fall diversion arrived to tempt students from their books. TV premiere week found students making adjustments to fit new seasons of popular shows such as "Grey's Anatomy" and "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," into their schedules. Katie Privett, a UP sophomore, said she religiously watches "Supernatural" and "Smallville" on Thursday nights and keeps up with "House" and "The Office" on a less-regular basis. TV is a definite factor in her schedule, she said. She arranged her classes for the fall in order to have Thursday evenings free to watch her favorite shows. Since the fall TV season has started, she said, she's beginning to make adjustments to fit in her TV viewing, which she estimated is about five to six hours per week. "If I do have something that's due on Friday, I have to complete it early." Katie Privett UF sophomore "Supernatural" and "Smallville" run in a two-hour block Thursday night, so she has to make an extra effort to keep up with her work for the next day, she said.

Keith Faulk. Faulk said Wayne Bomstad, a 31-year-old UF physics graduate student, probably committed suicide, but the sheriff's office is still conducting an investigation. An incident report from the office states that the death was alcohol-related. Faulk declined to comment further on the investigation.

Alachua County vets offer free vaccinations for dogs E THE TREATMENT WILL BE OFFERED UNTIL NOV. 23. By JENNIFER BINGAMAN Alligator Contributing Writer In the past five months, Alachua County has had an outbreak of a serious virus that affects dogs. However, there is free treatment. The Alachua County Veterinary Medical Association is providing free distemper vaccinations to spayed and neutered dogs until Nov. 23. Distemper is a virus that affects mostly puppies and stray dogs, said Denise Seufert, a veterinarian at the Butler Plaza Animal Hospital. The virus begins as a runny nose and cough, according to a press release about the free vaccination program. It can eventually lead to pneumonia, seizures and possible death. Seufert said her practice participates in the program. Once the disease advances, dogs "walk almost like A ud they are drunk, Gainesville like they don't have any control over their legs," Seufert said. Her animal hospital has already given out 121 vaccinations since the free program began on Sept. 23, she said. "I don't know if this will ever be repeated, because to my knowledge we have never had a distemper outbreak like this in 15 years," Seufert said. Because the virus spreads so easily, Alachua County Animal Shelter has had to euthanize about 13.0 puppies and 470 adult dogs since June that appeared to have the beginning stages of distemper, she said. "Just like you or I, when we cough or sneeze, it can spread several feet," Seufert said. The motivation behind the discounted pet services came from a California-based organization called Maddie's Fund. The organization provides grants to animal shelters that promote a no-kill philosophy. Because the vaccination only works to boost a dog's immune system and does not elirrinate the virus, Seufert said it is important to get dogs vaccinated as soon as possible.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 3, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, 5 STUDENT LIFE UF group uses art for healing By HANNA THOMPSON Alligator Contributing Writer A new student organization will use personal art to connect with patients and caregivers in Africa and European countries such as France, Portugal and Germany. Jill Sonke-Henderson, a UF theater and dance faculty member, came to Zarabeth Golden, a neuroscience and painting junior, with the idea for the International Fine Arts and Healing Student Organization. Golden, president of IFAH, said the purpose is to expose students to the universe of arts and medicine. "Many students at UF have their own art and want to be able to use that art to help people," Golden said. Twelve students will travel to Gambia in West Africa during spring break, along with three nurses and two faculty members, said Sonke-Henderson, the IFAH faculty adviser. "We will take groups to the rural villages in Banjul and a subset of the group will do performances on malaria prevention for the community," she said. "Many students at UF have their own art and want to be able to use that art to help people." Zarabeth Golden IFAH president Sonke-Henderson will also teach the History of Arts and Healing in Europe and the U.S., a two-credit class that will take 20 IFAH members to Strasbourg, France for Summer A. Students will work with five hospitals in and around Strasbourg, Sonke-Henderson said. Three community-service hours are also required each Dr. Fuller W.

"They will go through orientations and then be mentored by the residents artists in the Arts in Medicine program," she said. IFAH will work all year to raise money for travel fees and learn how to use the creative arts for healing, according to the Web site. "We are going to have bake sales, car washes, sell arts and crafts gift sets," Golden said. "Anything we can think of."

6, ALLIGATOR N WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 3, 2007 Editorial Wasted Time Outgoing senators don't make the grade another Student Senate term comes to a close, we just have to ask (to paraphrase Janet Jackson): What have you done for us lately? The answer seems to be: Not much. In fact, the only thing we've seen Student Government do this semester was get credit cards accepted at eateries across campus -oh, wait. That was mostly thanks to Student Body President Ryan Moseley. We're not saying the Senate hasn't been doing its job. We're sure it's going through all the motions, passing all the resolutions and practicing its circumlocutions. But where is the innovation? Where are the "tangible" benefits the Gator Party promised last semester, when Gator won all but one seat in the Senate? This doesn't give us much hope for the Gator senators who might win seats in this semester's election. For up to half of the Senate members (probably less, assuming incumbents retain some seats), this week is the end of their terms. Next week the torches will be passed to fresh-faced student senators, who will be announced after the election votes are tallied tonight. We can only hope the next class accomplishes more. It is the Student Senate's job -not just Ryan Moseley's -to come up with ideasthat will better the student body and then work to make those ideas a reality. While the Senate should work to accomplish as many of the platform goals as is feasible -and it has worked toward several already -it cannot judge its success solely on that. So for the senators-to-be: You're signing up for this job, presumably, because you want to make UF a better place. Because you want to gain experience. Because you want to say, "When I was in college, I made a difference." Prove it. No Excuses We can understand if you didn't vote Tuesday. We'd be lying if we said we never used the rain as an excuse to skip classes, including Tuesday. We can understand if you didn't vote Tuesday. You weren't sure where to go. Or you left your Gator 1 Card at home. Luckily, you can look for signs around campus, or check out the Student Government Web site for a list of locations. We can understand if you didn't vote Tuesday. You hadn't heard enough about the issues. You wanted to have a few more candidates attack you on Turlington Plaza. You wanted to see if today's Alligator would have any new information about the candidates or the parties. Well, you've got the paper. You've got the Alligator's Web site for old articles and editorials. You've got fliers from both parties. Not much more we can do on this front. We can understand if you didn't vote Tuesday. You were too busy with midterms, papers and the like. School work got in the way. But voting only takes a few minutes. Surely you can do it before, in between or after classes. We can understand if you didn't vote Tuesday. We're college students -procrastination is our leading tactic. Well, the deadline is here. Get to the polls.

Be smug for Ithe rest of the day Column Fundraising campaign comes at a price he advent of the Florida Tomorrow campaign is a great chance for UF to address its cash concerns -but only if done properly. Even though it looks innocent enough, this campaign has a dark side, primarily the fattening of UF's endowment. An endowment is a college's version of a savings account. It is money that can be invested in various ventures to increase its value. The endowment is a rough measure of a college's prestige, as more money allows a uriversity to do more things. It is no coincidence that Harvard University is America's richest, with a piggybank nearing the $30 billion mark, according to U.S. News & World Report. The past several years, UF's endowment has come just shy of the $1 billion mark. By comparison, the University of California-Los Angeles has about $2.9 billion, the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor has about $5.6 billion and the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill has about $1.7 billion. Even the University of California-Davis has about $1.3 billion. If UF President Bernie Machen gets his way, UF's campaign will increase UF's endowment to more than $2 billion, putting UF on par with other top schools. This is not bad in theory. After all, that extra money can do a lot of good things for students and faculty. Notice that in U.S. News' public university rankings, the four state schools I just mentioned rank third, third (they're tied), fifth and 11th, respectively. UF is ranked 17th. Could this campaign be merely a front for a ratings boost? UF's multinillion-dollar budget deficit. If UF raised $1.5 billion, offsetting this year's plan to cut $34 million from the budget would cost about 2 cents per dollar. Vincent Gagliano It would address the issue of letters@aligator.org staffing enough classes for everyone. It would put a stop to UF's hiring freeze and provide more financial incentives for professors. But most of all, it would do all of these things without having to raise tuition or compromise Bright Futures. In addition, raising the money for a big endowment is only half of the problem. The money from an endowment must be invested so it grows over time. If the money were squandered away in a matter of years, UF would have achieved nothing. How Machen handles the campaign after five years have passed will be a defining aspect of his time at UF. Managing success is one of the best tests of leadership, and Machen will be tested a lot. Just ask Billy Donovan, who led five NBA prospects and their egos to a second national championship. In all fairness, the campaign is oriented toward academics. The UF administration has tried going before a tax-unhappy Republican governor -a Florida State University alumnus, no less, to no avail. But before we spend five years trying to raise massive amounts of money, we must do it for the right reasons. We are THE University of Florida, so we must serve the best Even though Machen has mentioned that this caminterests of students and teachers. paign is not directly aimed at UF's cash problem, it is also Vincent Gagliano is a sophomore majoring in physics. odd that he did not mention anything about paying for His colunin appears oi Wednesdays.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 3, 2007 N ALLIGATOR, 7 "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" Letters to the Editor Student-run cafe would be SG-funded It is reassuring to see that the Alligator editorial board appreciates the ideas behind the student-run cafe -a non-corporate, nonprofit, student-run space that serves cafe-style food and beverages at cost to consumers. What's less reassuring is the horrible job the editorial board did formulating its opinions, which have consistently been off the mark, about the cafe. If it had actually taken the time to read the referendum, it would have seen that the student-run cafe would ask Student Government, not UF, to provide the start-up costs for the cafe. With the money spent bringing one speaker to this school, we could fund a student-run cafe on campus serving high-end organic and fair-trade drinks on the cheap. If you think it's about time Starbucks' monopoly on campus ended, and if you recognize the value of a nonprofit studentrun cafe, you need to vote "yes" for this. Maybe now that the Alligator has all the facts about this referendum, it will apologize for misleading its readers about it. Skeet Surrency 4AG Experience not necessary to critique I'm sure Kyle Cox hasn't done a lot of things in his life, as I haven't either. But to say that you cannot criticize someone because of never doing those things is ridiculous. Charlie Weis is the University of Notre Dame's head coach, and he deserves the heat he is under. When the United States heads to war, can we say the president is doing a horrible job and that we have no right going? Of course not, because we've never been a president. What about CNN and Fox News and all those news channels constantly talking about people's decisions? Should they be taken off the air because they are not letting people do their jobs? Cox's argument is fundamentally flawed. Just because I've never been a football head coach doesn't mean I can't see how horrible of a coach Charlie Weis is. And I think it's funny that Cox invites me to try out for football. I don't understand the logic here: Do I have to do and be everytbing in life in order to have an opinion of it? No. Let me say what I want.

"The mood was positive," she said. "The candidates were coming back drenched and just asking for more handouts." Today, the Gator Party will continue its strategy of talking to as many students as possible, she said. That goal should be easier to reach because she isn't expecting rain, she added. Trimboli said his party's campaigning was mostly limited to the Reitz Union Colonnade. -Today, candidates would "I'm very pleased with everyone," he said. "Despite the rain, students went out and voted." He added that an improved voting system could increase even more.

Media group includes students in TV ratings TV, from Page 1 said. "I'm more likely to do my homework in the aftemoon if I know that I want to watch TV at night." Vanessa Vinas, a UF sophomore, said she doesn't have much time for TV, but she makes an effort to fit a few shows in. She left lab work early last week to watch the "Grey's Anatomy" season premiere, she said. "I try to make room for it in my schedule," she said. "It's not like I'm going to ditch a test to watch TV, but I make a bigger effort to schedule it in." Privett and Vinas aren't the only students pushing aside the books for a few hours of TV. College students are increasingly acknowledged as an important consumer group for TV shows. "I try to make room for it in my schedule." Vanessa Vinas UF sophomore Nielsen Media Research announced in January that it would begin factoring college students living away from home into its ratings. According to a press release from Nielsen, the impact on ratings from college student viewing among women was greatest for prime-time dramas with strong female characters, while male students increase ratings for football and animation programming. Frank Selb, a UF biochemistry and molecular biology junior, said in his apartment, the TV is generally on all day. Selb said he and his roommates, all of whom are men, "aren't really into the new fall schedule," but that his roommate did skip a Campus Crusade for Christ meeting last week to catch "The Office" premiere. wwwmarkettrebrewpub cm tug TIub* & (3dm1iht 10kcsdag 9 pm -2 am $5.00 All-You-Can-Drink Domestic Drafts $10.00 All-You-Can-Drink Any Draft Texas Hold'Em starting at 7:30 Beat-The-Bag starting at 10pm $75 worth of Gift Gertificates to top 5 players *(Must have MSP Muq $5.00) Mug Clubbers get free pitchers for Beer Pong VOTE!

14, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 3,2007 UF players' night lives a concern NOTES, from page 16 "I think in his heart he wasn't trying to do anything wrong, so I think he should (play), yeah," Tebow said. Meyer said he was concerned the news would distract the Gators as they prepare for their matchup against the -Tigers, but he didn't sense a lack of focus at practice. "T h e s e guys are all famTebow ily," Meyer said. "Any time someone has a situation, that distracts the family." SHOOTING UPDATE: Meyer said he is very worried about his team's nighttime activities after three football players were interviewed about a shooting early Sunday morning. Tight end Aaron Hernandez and two other current Gators yet to be identified were among several people interviewed by police, according to reports from the Orlando Sentinel. Although the players are not suspects in the case, Meyer said he wasn't overly happy that his players were out at 2 a.m. "I mean, I know college kids do stuff," Meyer said. "I'd rather not do that after games, but I'm not a police officer, either, so I can't lock them down completely." Coach boasts 10-1 record in games following losses MEYER, from page 16 chomp while the Gators hung their heads or stared into space. Meyer remembered other special teams lapses, a thoughtless roughing the kicker penalty, a missed field goal by Joey Ijjas and a fake punt for a first down brought back by a pre-snap penalty. Since he coaches the special teams, Meyer blamed himself for the loss. "You don't get angry at players, you coach players," Meyer said. "So I'm angry at myself and angry at our staff. .We've got to finish the job." He took the fall for freshman punter Chas Henry failing to line up on the line of scrimmage on the fake and for Jamar Hornsby running into the punter. The good news is that all of that is correctable. "We're not putting our caps on backwards for rally caps or turning them inside out," Meyer said. "We have to get better." Judging by history, they probably will improve -and quickly Meyer's impeccable record in more than six years of coaching includes a 10-1 mark in games after losses. That gives No. 9 UF (4-1, 2-1 Southeastern Conference) the confidence needed to trust Meyer's change in tactics. "Guys can look at him and see someone who handles losing, handles adversity really BASES, from page 16 well," sophomore quarterback Tim Tebow said. Meyer has not lost two in a row since 2002 at Bowling Green, and he has never lost three straight. But this is top-ranked LSU, a team bent for revenge to make up for losing in Gainesville last year. The last time the Gators traveled to Baton Rouge, a 21-17 loss in 2005, Meyer left wiping away tears after a heart-tugging postgame press conference. "It was emotional for all of us," Joiner said. "It meant a lot Football to see our coach actually show emotion about a game we lost, the same emotion we showed. .It kind of helped us, knowing that he's in it with us." Meyer had the luxury of bye weeks following his last three losses at UF. After the Aubum loss in 2006, the Gators regrouped to defeat Georgia. The same thing happened in 2005, when the Gators topped the Bulldogs after the LSU loss. Later that year, Meyer and the Gators dominated Florida State 34-7 after getting upset by Steve Spurrier's South Carolina Gamecocks. Can the Gators do it again? Having Meyer at the heim certainly gives them a chance. "We're going to do what's made Coach Meyer's program great in the past," Tebow said. "That's outworking teams." arrested. Whenever I've dealt with Joiner, he's been nothing but a stand-up person. He's everything you want as a reporter: candid, accessible and friendly. He's had issues in the past -something he understandably doesn't want to talk about -but those appeared to be past him. --Alex Kolyer / Alligator UF coach Urban Meyer expresses disapproval after wide receiver Louis Murphy received an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty following his touchdown reception against Mississippi on Sept. 22. These young guys in the secondary look up to him, and they appeared to have good reason. Now he's a distraction. As Lawrence Marsh left the practice field and saw the mosh pit of reporters around Urban Meyer, Marsh whispered that it really wasn't that big of a deal. But then why didn't Meyer say more on it? The most UF's coach said about the incident was that he was "disappointed" in Joiner. Why didn't players talk instead of declining to comment? It's their right to stay silent, but why not talk if it isn't a concern? The Gators got through the Marcus Thomas ordeal last season, but that was a veteran team. This is a young, impressionable team. Maybe Joiner didn't go to the impound looking to steal the car back, but his decision to go there at that time may have just cost the Gators a chance at a national championship. Because if Joiner doesn't play, that defense is a sitting duck.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 3, 2007 E ALLIGATOR, 15 UF VOLLEYBALL McGinnis one of many Gators rewriting history books By PHIL KEGLER Alligator Writer Angie McGinnis may be a stellar setter, but when it comes to setting records, she's a little oblivious. The senior setter needs only 16 assists to become UF's alltime assist leader, breaking Heidi Anderson's 15-year-old record. When asked about it Tuesday, McGinnis said she didn't even know she was close to breaking the record. The senior laughed as she acknowledged it would be pretty bad for her team if she didn't break the record this weekend, considering she has averaged 41.6 assists per match so far this season. "That's a pretty awesome accomplishment," McGinnis said. "But I mean, getting a chance to play for a great volleyball team and getting a chance to start all four years is the only reason that that's happening." McGinnis knows she's come a long way from her freshman year, and as she looks to dish out her 4,856th assist, she attributes most of the change to boosts in strength and confidence. "I didn't have the strength to push the ball from one side of the court to the other my freshman year necessarily," McGinnis said. "And now I'm much more confident with it. I do a lot more, like taking a look at the other team's blocks and trying to get our hitters one-on-one. I've kind of gone from a good set my freshman year to making all my sets good, to making them tricky and taking the other team out of their offense." Considering the differences in play -back then points were only scored on serve, which made for longer games and therefore more assists -UF coach Mary Wise is impressed McGinnis has closed in on the mark. "It's amazing -that was a statistic that was earned back in side-out scoring," Wise said. "The game has changed in rally scoring. I wasn't sure when Heidi set it that it would ever be broken. So to not only break it, but break it in rally scoring tells you just what a great setter that Angie has been for our program." "As Elyse plays, so goes our team." -Mary Wise UF volleyball coach McGinnis isn't the only UF player rewriting the history books. Elyse Cusack became the first player in Southeastern Conference history to win backto-back Defensive Player of the Week awards. The award is Cusack's seventh league honor in just her second season, including five Defensive Player of The Week awards and two Freshman Player of the Week honors. The five defensive accolades are also the most by one player since the league began naming the award in 2003. The sophomore libero contributed a season-high 29 digs against Alabama on Sunday. Wise knows Cusack's presence on the floor influences a match immensely. "As Elyse plays, so goes our team," Wise said. "When she took her game to another level at Alabama, so did our team. She has the ability to really change an entire match. She's so good that other teams have to really work hard in their entire offensive scheme on how to keep balls away from her." Kisya Killingsworth continues UF's record-setting trend. The senior middle blocker recorded her 1,000th kill against LSU on Sept. 23. That made her the 15th player in school history to hit the millennium mark. With fellow senior Marcie Hampton already above the achievement, it marks the fifth time in UF history that.jhe team has had two players on the roster with 1,000 kills. Not only has Killingsworth dominated in kills, but the senior also tallied her 300th career block Sunday against Alabama. She became the fifth player in school history to have 1,000 kills and 300 blocks. Wise noted the special nature of Killingsworth's versatility. "None of those others had to do it at multiple positions," Wise said. "Her ability to do that playing three different positions -what a great athlete Kisya is and has been." Despite all the milestones being passed, Killingsworth said the team doesn't focus too much on the individual achievements. "I think it's awesome but we'll have bigger things to celebrate," Killingsworth said. "Like if we win a national championship." FL4RIDAVOLLEYBALL HOME.

Sports WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 3,2007 Coach stays mum about safety's arrest S URBAN MEYER IS WAITING TO LEARN MORE BEFORE COMMENTING. By JENNA MARINA Alligator Staff Writer jna na@algator.org UF coach Urban Meyer was tight-lipped about senior safety Tony Joiner s arrest on charges of burglary Tuesday morning. Meyer, who was "disappointed" when he heard the news, said he's still evaluating the incident and won't comment until he knows more because it's not fair to the people involved. "I don't know the whole story, yet," Meyer said after Tuesday's practice. "I'm still getting information like a lot of people are. Meyer said he would probably find out more details later Tuesday night, and until he does, he refuses to comment candidly about it. Joiner did not practice Tuesday, and Meyer said it will remain that way until the coach finds out everything about the situation. Joiner, who is a member of the leadership committee and was voted in as a captain, has totaled 20 tackles, one interception and one pass breakup for the season.

UF FOOTBALL Meyer buckles down after Auburn loss By NICK ZACCARDI Alligator Staff Writer nzaccardi@alligator.org After UF's heartbreaking loss to Auburn on Saturday, something had to change. In an intense, impromptu team meeting, UF coach Urban Meyer set the record straight Monday morning. Simply put, no more Mr. Nice Guy. "You can kind of say he's a lot more strict now in everything he's doing," said senior strong safety Tony Joiner on Monday, less than 24 hours before he was arrested on burglary charges. "He's not playing around anymore." Joiner elaborated, saying Meyer has reverted back to his tough-guy attitude. *MLB Playoffs: Los Angeles at Boston TBS, 6:30 p.m. *MLB Playoffs: Chi Cubs at Arizona TBS, 10 p.m. He's back to being a disciplinarian and a detail-oriented coach. No more turning the other cheek when players miss a class or two, or in practice when players take a few plays off. "Every human being is measured when they get hit." Urban Meyer UF football coach Meyer's challenge is to fix mistakes, including his own, regroup his young team and come to play Saturday in the backyard of the No. 1 team in the country, LSU.

UF finished the year with an 8-2 record. last-second loss to Auburn, Meyer's first home loss at UF. "We got hit square. That was a frontal, frontal shot at home." After losses, Meyer speaks softer and in shorter sentences. Reporters inch closer to him to hear his answers. Players reflect his attitude.

You hear that noise off in the distance? It's LSU quarterbacks Matt Flynn and Ryan Perrilloux laughing. In case you somehow didn't see the front page of the newspaper, UF senior safety and team captain Tony Joiner was arrested and charged with burglary early Tuesday morning after trying to take his girlfriend's towed car from an impound lot. Later on Tuesday the owner of the property Stan Forron, said the whole thing was a misunderstanding and wanted the charges dropped. Forron said Joiner Brian Steele had made plans to Steele-ing Bases pick up the car and bsteele@alligator.org that's why the gate was open, but nobody was there to meet up with Joiner. No matter what the truth is, Joiner shouldn't have been there at 4:30 in the morning. So, Gators fans, if you were sick to your stomach watching Auburn's Brandon Cox pick apart the secondary, you better break out the Pepto-Bismol. If Joiner doesn't play this weekend, you'll be on the verge of a stomach ulcer. No offense to Major Wright, Joe Haden and Wondy Pierre-Louis, but UF's pass defense is a mess without Joiner. These young pups have huge ceilings and'laudable work ethics, but their play just hasn't been consistent. They've all made some great plays, but that becomes a whole lot more difficult without their senior captain.

In a week where we should be debating whether LSU's defense can stop UF's offense, we're talking about legal issues.
