Meyer's deal



keeps him



out of court

By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

Andrew Meyer will not face criminal charges if he
completes 18 months of voluntary probation, the State
Attorney's Office said in a news release Tuesday.
Meyer must also donate $150 to the American
Cancer Society or perform 10 hours of community
service, records stated.
Meyer, a UF telecommunication senior who was
Tasered during a forum with Sen. John Kerry on Sept.
17, was originally given felony and
,- misdemeanor charges that could
have meant up to five years in
prison.
State Attorney Bill Cervone
-. wrote in the release that Meyer
,'- did not pose any risk to the safety
or peace of the community.
Meyer Meyer released apology let-
ters to the UF community, the
University Police Department and UF President
Bernie Machen on Monday. The UF and UPD letters
were mandated by the State Attorney's Office as part
of Meyer's deal.
The deferred prosecution agreement, which was
finished Wednesday, was not filed with the court un-
til Tuesday so Meyer could complete these letters.
Meyer has also accepted punishment from UF for
violating the Student Code of Conduct, but the details
of his penalty could not be disclosed.
Meyer's attorney, Robert Griscti, said Meyer has
withdrawn from classes because of the aggressive at-
tention he's received from students and the media.
He plans to return in January, Griscti said.
"I do not believe a Taser should have been used
on me," Meyer wrote on his Web site. "Tasers are not
'non-lethal.'"
However, the Police Benevolent Association, a po-
lice advocacy group that staged a news conference in
front of Tigert Hall on Tuesday morning, said Tasers
are widely accepted as injury-reducing devices.
UPD belongs to the group.
The group said a Wake Forest University study of
962 Taser cases found no deaths, and 99.7 percent of
the Tasered individuals had no injuries or only mild
injuries.
Many of the mild injuries were caused because
people fell down after the shock, the study stated.

Workin' for the Weekend
Student employees of the O'Connell Center move a rack of stage lights onto the stage for Gator Growl in the
north end zone of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium on Tuesday. The event will feature comedian Frank Caliendo and
Lynyrd Skynyrd on Friday night.





Police expect more calls on Halloween


* GPD FIELDS 50 CALLS A NIGHT
AROUND HALLOWEEN WEEKENDS.

By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org

With trick-or-treaters on the streets and
parties all over town, Halloween could
mean extra work for police.
Gainesville Police Department spokes-
man Lt. Keith Kameg said he expects GPD
to stay pretty busy in the days surrounding
Halloween.
"It's not uncommon that we'll respond
to 50 or 60 calls a night around Halloween
weekends," he said.
Sgt. Keith Faulk, spokesman for the
Alachua County Sheriff's Office, said he


expects to get a lot of calls on Wednesday
night, as well.
"In comparison with a home football
game, it would probably be higher than
that even though it's celebrated in the
middle of the week," he said.
University Police Department spokes-
man Capt. Jeff Holcomb said
Public Halloween is a quiet night on
Safety campus.
The dorms aren't a big
destination for partygoers, he said.
Also, UPD doesn't deal with the safety
issues of trick-or-treating because the
dorms are only open to residents, he said.
Kameg said he considers Halloween to
be a major holiday in Gainesville, but it's
calmed down since the mid-'80s, when
people would attend a Halloween ball he
described as "Sodom and Gomorrah."

Tuesday's
story about Andrew
Meyer's apology
prompted hundreds
of comments at
www.alligator.org.
Check out a
sampling of the
responses on pg. 7.


"Halloween is pretty laid back," he
said. "It's just really busy because people
go out and have a good time."
He said he doesn't see too many prob-
lems with pranks or mischief.
Faulk said he's seen few problems, too.
"We do get calls of eggings and toilet
paper and shaving cream," he said, "but
not any major issues."
Police seldom see permanent damage
from vandalism, he said.
Kameg said that while police aren't
looking to arrest anyone for it, another is-
sue might be indecent exposure.
"Some of the costumes are clothing-
light," he said.
Faulk said drivers should be careful
to keep their eyes on- the road and not be
distracted by people wearing costumes in
other cars.

Meyer video,


calls released

By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

On the day he was Tasered, Andrew Meyer told his
mother he was happy because his arrest would bring
important issues to light.
Recordings of Meyer's first telephone call from the
Alachua County Jail and videos from inside the police
car that took him there were made available Tuesday,
the same day his probation notice and personal state-
ments were released.
During his first call, he told his father, Joel Meyer,
that he knows he got "excited" at the speech by Sen.
John Kerry on Sept. 17, but he didn't think it war-
ranted getting Tasered and arrested.
"What a joke," Meyer said when his
Local dad picked up. "What happened to the
News First Amendment, right?"
Joel Meyer reminded his son not to
say anything he'd regret, to which Meyer responded,
"You wanna sue the bastards?"
Meyer and his father speculated about "FBI hench-
men" who they said were probably listening to the
conversation.
When he addressed "whoever is listening," Joel
Meyer said, "If you touch a hair on his head if
anything happens to him there's gonna be really
recourse."
During a call the next day, Meyer joked to his father
that the jail was enjoyable.
"I wanted to smile for my mug shot," Meyer said.
Joel Meyer reminded his son to be humble.
"No smiling, you know, for the cameras," Joel
Meyer said.
In the car the day before, Meyer asked police about
the legality of his arrest, chatted with them about the
UF football team and complained about how tight his
handcuffs were.
"I can't feel the circulation in my hand here, bro,"
Meyer said.
He asked officer Lynn Mallo to explain why he was
charged with resisting arrest with violence.
"I would have never hit you," he said. "You were
just doing your job."
Mallo said she was trying to help Meyer by telling
him to calm down.
"Honestly, I read '1984,' and I felt like, like.you guys
were gonna take me out back and execute me," Meyer
said, leaning forward in his seat. "I was so scared."
Mallo assured Meyer police wouldn't kill him.


CITY COMMISSION

East Gainesville project approved


By KORI FREDERICK
Alligator Writer


The Gainesville City Commission
voted to approve the long-debated
Hatchet Creek Development in East
Gainesville late Monday night.
By a 4-3 vote, the commission ap-
proved the project with a large number
of changes to the original proposal and
room to make additional changes if
necessary.
Commissioners and officials with


the Gainesville Regional Airport had
earlier expressed concerns that part
,01. i of the development
1 would be within the
Airport Noise Zone.
The developers
4 cannot build resi-
S-dences in industri-
ally zoned land near
S' I" the airport, com-
Hanrahan missioners ruled,
though the develop-
ers still want to build in the area.


Charles Roop/ Alligator Staff
Members of the Police Benevolent Association hold signs during a
news conference in front of Tigert Hall on Tuesday morning.


The developers will have an oppor-
tunity to re-present a modified applica-
tion if they decide to, Mayor Pegeen
Hanrahan said.
The commissioners are waiting to
hear back from the Federal Aviation
Administration to get a better under-
standing of how close residential build-
ings can be to the airport.
The development could include
1,199 residential units, an assisted liv-
ing facility and 200,000 feet of office
and commercial space.


police group


supports Tasers

EYER, from Page 1


Florida chapter of the association, said he's
been Tasered before and it wasn't that bad.
"For five seconds, it's really horrible, but
by the seventh second, it's over," Oberlin
said.
He said the organization was disap-
pointed that UF's Committee on a Civil, Safe
and Open Environment does not include any
police officers.
Machen created the committee the day af-
ter Meyer's arrest to examine UF's policies on
student forums and police protocol.
"You don't have a climate control study
without people who understand the climate,"
Oberlin said.
In fact, he added, creating a committee
isn't even necessary since the officers fol-
lowed the law.
As for Meyer, he said he's learned a lot
about expressing himself throughout the
ordeal.
"I felt that being adamant and confronta-
tional about my beliefs was the right way to
effect change," Meyer wrote in a statement. "I
was wrong."
Meyer wrote that his main goal is to edu-
cate people about the need for fair elections.
Meyer was attempting to ask Kerry about
the 2004 election before police tried to take
him outside the auditorium. In the statement,
he apologized to Kerry for accosting him.
"My issues are not so important that I
need to shove them in anyone's face," Meyer
wrote.

Group helps cancer victims


By EVA MAE SMITH
Alligator Contributing Writer

Two families of children receiving cancer
treatment at Shands at UF will soon receive a
helping hand.
- The 5th annual Lance Dalton Memorial Silent
Auction, hosted by the UF chapter of Friends for
Life of America, is being held to assist deserving
families in paying their medical bills, said Rachel
Cannon, the co-chair of the event and a child-
education junior at UF
This year's funds will be given to two families,
one with a 3-year-old boy with leukemia and the
other with a 16-year-old girl with Hodgkin's lym-
phoma, Cannon said.
Friends for Life of America would not release
any more information about the patients or their
families for legal reasons, she said.
Online bidding began Monday and will end
Tuesday at 6 p.m.
Bidding will continue live on Wednesday


from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. on the Reitz Union
Colonnade, she said.
Last year, the event raised about $3,000, and
this year's goal is $5,000, she said.
"The items are things that you're
buying for yourself. But at the same
time, you're giving to other people."
Rachel Cannon
event co-chair

It cost families about $150,000 per leukemia
treatment and the amount of treatments varies
depending on the case, Cannon said.
Cannon said the items up for bid include a
Kaplan course worth $1,500 and Disney park
passes worth more than $100.
"The items are things that you're buying for
yourself," she said. "But at the same time, you're
giving to other people."

Happy Halloween

We put local celebs into

the perfect costumes
No, there's not a Victoria's Secret show downtown
tonight. It's Halloween, arguably college students'
favorite holiday. Drink specials abound, costume
contests bring out the best or worst in everyone, and
of course, our favorite part: half-off candy tomorrow.
As we sat in our office decorated with real spiderwebs
and severed body parts (much scarier, don't you think?),
we thought about what we'd like to see everyone dressed as
this year. So let us entertain you as you prepare for tonight's
parties and put the finishing touches on your costume.
We thought long and hard about what UF President
Bernie Machen would dress up as, but we finally decided
he should spend tonight as a deranged dentist, because re-
ally, what's scarier than spending an hour in that chair?
Plus, that's what Bernie is tenured as, so it's perfect.
We can already see him with a Halloween Horror Nights-
worthy drill, covered in blood. He'd wear a necklace of his
victims' ahem, patients' teeth.
He'd floss our teeth until our gums bleed and instead
of filling our cavities, he'd drill us new ones. Worst of all,
that's not a shot of Novocain.
Student Body President Ryan Moseley should dress up
as David Beckham, since his parents are British. Moseley
and Beckham have the same pretty-Brit-boy look. Student
Senate President Kevin Reilly would dress up as his lovely
wife Posh Spice. Together they'd cause a sensation on the
third floor of the Reitz Union and a highly fashionable
one, at that.
As Gainesville's mayor, Pegeen Hanrahan deserves to
spend the day dressed as a queen. In her beautiful gown
and lovely crown, she'd transform Gainesville into a magi-
cal realm with one wave of her wand. Towing problems:
solved! Traffic lights: synchronized! The Oaks Mall: better
stores! Ah, it's good to be queen.
Age of Dinosaurs professor Paul Ciesielski would dress
up as a Tyrannosaurus Rex but end up looking more like
a rock.
Andrew Meyer would dress up, of course, as a disen-
franchised voter.
Gators quarterback Tim Tebow could dress up as a
priest. We can only hope his vial of Holy Water and his
cross can exorcise the demons that have been haunting the
football team, before it faces Vanderbilt a team that's
given us close calls in the past few years.
Word on the street is that the towing companies all
banded together to have a costume party and all their
employees are dressing up as pirates. Go figure.
Economics professor Mark Rush could dress up as a
slice of pizza from Leo's, and the Director could go as a
Burrito Bros. burrito. We just hope they don't accidentally
eat each other.
Billy Donovan and Urban Meyer would dress up as
Mario and Luigi. Using their superpowers, they'd lead
their cast of characters into Bowser's castle to rescue
Princess Peach. Or they'd just take their teams into champi-
onship games and win. Yeah, we like that much better. But
how awesome would it be to see them dressed up in those
matching red and green outfits?
Whatever you decide to dress up as tonight, we hope
you have a great Halloween.

Hey kids, what's the BEST Halloween treat you got this year?!?


Column

Halloween history explains traditions


or this week, I'm adding a little holiday twist to my
work for Halloween, not Homecoming. Vincent
Massaro, the Monday columnist, might disagree,
but I've seen some strange happenings around Gainesville
over the past few days, things that might have something
to do with the supernatural themes Oct. 31 entails.
This year's pumpkin crop suffered from bad weather.
Andrew Meyer did an about-face and apologized for his
actions at Sen. John Kerry's forum. Gov. Charlie Crist fi-
nally approved a few tuition and fee increases.
But Halloween still has historical and spiritual signifi-
cance beyond candy and costumes.
Tomorrow, Nov. 1, my Catholic grandparents will go
to church to celebrate All Saints' Day. As the name indi-
cates, it is a special day set aside for all of the saints in
the church. From their perspective All Hallow's Eve is the
vigil held before the service.
However, when Catholicism made its way up to the
British region in medieval times, the Brits, Scots and Celts
mixed the Christian tradition with their own pagan festi-
vals, the most famous being Samhain, a celebration when
people would parade around in animal-skin costumes.
That's why the holiday conjures up more images of
witches, ghosts and black cats than of feasts or crosses.
Historically, other legends surround Halloween, con-
tributing to its mystique. The Celts believed sacrifices
were necessary to appease evil spirits, so they left food
and sacrifices for them, which became the root of trick-
or-treating.
The Romans had a festival that honored Pomona, the
goddess of fruit trees who was often depicted wearing a
crown made of apples. This led to the tradition of bobbing
for apples.
The use of orange and black for Halloween has its ori-


gin in the occult. The unbleached
beeswax candles used in church
services for the dead were colored
orange, and caskets were draped
in black.
On a side note, a few magi-
Vincent Gagliano cians will hold seances for Harry
letters@alligator.org Houdini today, 81 years after he
died from a punch in the stomach.
Every year they hope the world's greatest escape artist can
flee from the trap of death, but every year they come away
disappointed.
Don't blame your religious friends for being skittish
about participating in such pagan rituals. I attended a
high school affiliated with the Presbyterian church. Every
year on Halloween night, the church holds a "Creation
Celebration" in lieu of all the aforementioned rituals.
Of course, candy and costume parties are still present,
and everyone has a good time. Ultimately, the most im-
portant thing is to know the history of Halloween, or any
other holiday, in order to truly understand and celebrate
its purpose.
Also, Halloween is the inaugural festival for a litany of
other fall and winter celebrations, the most prominent be-
ing Thanksgiving and Christmas. And for UF, Halloween
falls on the week of the Homecoming parade, Gator Growl
and the Homecoming game against Vanderbilt this year.
So until then, have fun, don't drink too much at parties
and enjoy having Friday off so you can scream your lungs
out for two fantastic days.
Oh, and wish me luck I've heard its dangerous to
spend tonight in Broward Hall.
Vincent Gagliano is a sophomore majoring in physics. His
column appears on Wednesdays.

Letters to the Editor
Meyer not responsible for others' reactions
I am writing to express my dissenting opinions from those
expressed in Tuesday's editorial, "Over and Out." I am disap-
pointed that it repeatedly blamed Andrew Meyer for all of the
reactions to the Tasering incident. Yes, Meyer is responsible for
actions at the Sen. John Kerry forum. However, he is not re-
sponsible for how UF administrators, students and.the world
responded to his actions. It is not his fault that the Kevorkian
speech got moved to next semester. This is the responsibility
of the community of which we are all a part. By attending this
university, we are agreeing to support its policies.
If we do not, it is our responsibility to change them. Please
pardon the suggestion if it sounds patronizing, but if you
don't agree, please read Plato's "The Republic" and take a
course on political philosophy.

UF graduate student



GPS plans will make students' bus rides better
Student Government was pleased to note on Monday that
the Alligator is anticipating the global positioning system
improvements for Regional Transit System just as much as
we are. However, with such a focus on the timeline and cost
of implementing GPS on RTS, students still don't know how
much they will benefit from these improvements. SG is sure
this is a huge step for a system that students interact with on
such a regular basis, and will help all Gainesville residents bet-
ter control their travel and their time.
The most observable results would be access to an online
map of the RTS bus routes, tracking the location of buses in
real time. On top of that, students will be able to send text mes-
sages and receive responses with the projected arrival time for
the nearest bus to each stop on its route. There will also be sev-
eral LCD screens placed at major stops on campus, including
proposed screens at the Hub and Rawlings bus stops. These
screens will display maps of all the routes which run through
the stop.
Technology plays a huge role in the lives of UF students.
With these improvements, SG is helping to bring RTS up to the
modem standards of instant communication.
While these benefits will certainly help students, the most
important benefits won't be immediately apparent. RTS will
be able to track bus movements in a more precise manner, bus-
es will arrive at more even intervals and RTS will also be able
to couple the information gained from GPS and rider-counting
in order to design more efficient routes.
This will ultimately translate into improved and more
consistent wait times for students. Ultimately, installing GPS
on RTS buses will provide many immediate benefits, but more
importantly, it will create an avenue for improvement by lay-
ing the foundation for future change.
SG is dedicated to not only improving the lives of students,
but making a positive impact on the community that supports
our university. We are sure that this program will help im-
prove Gainesville and UF for current and future generations
of Gators.

SG press secretary


Editor's note: The following comments appeared
on www.alligator.org in response to Tuesday's
article "Meyer apologizes in letter to students."
I have to admit, I suddenly like him a whole lot
more.
Tarantula


I know he was definitely at least a bit RUDE and he
was asked to stop his turn however, he was express-
ing political views while asking a few questions at a po-
litical 'town hall' meeting. Since when can't an American
be outraged and demand answers at an 'open' town hall
meeting? The use of force was entirely unnecessary. The
speaker supposedly wanted to answer the questionss.
Why not allow some political discourse?

Gators to wear orange, black in Halloween match


UF middle blocker Kisya Killingsworth spikes the ball during UF's
sweep of the Mississippi Rebels on Sunday afternoon.


* UF PLAYS ITS SECOND MID-
WEEK GAME OF THE SEASON.

By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Writer

Tonight, in a rare midweek
match, UF plays a South Carolina
team (11-12, 4-10 Southeastern
Conference) that should be fright-
ened to face the No. 10 Gators (20-
1, SEC 13-1).
Since Mary Wise became
the coach in 1991, UF has won
seven of its eight matches on
Halloween.
The only loss came in a sweep
at the hands of Florida State in
1994.
Current seniors have fond
memories of a Halloween sweep
over Mississippi State in 2004,
and two seniors have pleasant
recollections of non-volleyball
Halloweens earlier than that.
Senior outside hitter Marcie
Hampton's favorite Halloween
costume as a child was the blue,
puffy-leg getup of Princess
Jasmine from the Disney movie
"Aladdin."
"I was really excited about it,
but it was really, really cold out-
side," she said. "So I had to wear a
jacket over my costume, and that
was devastating.


"It was just heartbreaking. I re-
ally loved my costume."
Senior middle blocker Kisya
Killingsworth also had her share
of costumes growing up, though
she admitted she is more into
Thanksgiving and Christmas than
Halloween.
She usually spends Halloween
night at her computer, handing
out candy when someone rings
her doorbell.

"The coaches do a really
good job of keeping us on a
similar schedule no mat-
ter where we are when we
actually get there."
Marcie Hampton
UF senior outside hitter


The only costume she can
remember is when her mother
dressed her up as a clown one
year.
"I probably was a clown back
then," Killingsworth said.
Though they won't be wearing
any costumes tonight in South
Carolina, they still get to dress up
for the occasion a little.
The team will try to be festive
by wearing its orange-and-black
jerseys, Hampton said.


The Gators learned from their
loss at South Carolina last year
- the only SEC venue where they
lost and plan to stay concen-
trated on volleyball.
Tonight will be the team's sec-
ond and last Wednesday home
match of the season.
Last time, the Wednesday
match was followed by a loss to
Arkansas in a Friday match.
This week, the Gators will not
play again until a Sunday match
against that same Razorbacks
team.
The midweek match can cause
problems for the team's rhythm,
but the coaches are not going to
let that happen.
"The coaches do a really good
job of keeping us on a similar
schedule no matter where we
are when we actually get there,"
Hampton said.
"We need to make sure that's
not a factor when we get ready
to play."
What will be a factor is South
Carolina's home atmosphere.
"Any time you play on the
road, it's tough," Hampton said.
"And then you play in a smaller
gym, the crowd's right on you
and the facility's pretty tight.
We're going to have our work cut
out for us."


UF FOOTBALL

Freshman backup center practices with defensive line


By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
jmarina@alligator.org

UF offensive lineman Mike
Pouncey practiced with the de-
fensive line Tuesday, Gators coach
Urban Meyer said.
The defensive line took a major
blow this week by losing starting
defensive tackle Javier Estopinan,
who tore his anterior cruciate liga-


ment in the Georgia game.
Tackles Terron Sanders (left
high ankle sprain) will miss sev-
eral weeks, and Brandon Antwine
(lower back) is likely out for the
season.
Pouncey is currently listed as
the backup center to Drew Miller
and, as a recruit, was ranked as the
seventh-best offensive guard in the
nation, according to Scout.com.
In mid-October, Meyer said he


expected Pouncey and his twin
brother, Maurkice, to have bright
futures with the Gators.

MOVING ON UP: Redshirt fresh-
man Justin Williams could work
his way into the Gators' receiving
corps, Meyer said.
Williams notched two tackles
against the Bulldogs for a season
total of five.
"That's the first thing you really


have to do before
you get involved
in the offense is
make a play on
special teams,"
Meyer said.
"He's getting a
Williams lot better. He's
one of the most
improved guys right now."

WHERE'S WALKER?: Meyer was


somewhat elusive about running
back Chevon Walker's status on
the team.
Walker played in the first five
games of the season, but he hasn't
seen the field since the Gators'
Sept. 29 home matchup against
Auburn.
When asked if the redshirt
freshman was still on team, Meyer
replied: "He has got some personal
issues he has to take care of. As of
now, yes."

FOOTBALL

Davis, Marsh expected to step in for depleted D-line


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

When it comes to UF's young
defensive linemen, it's better to let
them explain what practice has been
like recently.
"It's been like hell straight
hell," a panting Torrey Davis. said.
"I'm getting better, but it's hell."
With starting tackle Javier
Estopinan out for the year with a
torn left anterior cruciate ligament,
the Gators don't have many op-
tions left. Reserve tackle Brandon
Antwine is also probably done for
the season with lower back issues.
A few weeks ago, losing reserve
redshirt freshman' Terron Sanders
to a high ankle sprain wouldn't be a
big deal. Not anymore.
"Right now, it's a mash unit," UF
coach Urban Meyer said. "We're try-
ing to get that pieced together."
UF's line is in such shambles it
had backup offensive lineman Mike
Pouncey practice at tackle Tuesday.
Now it's redshirt senior tackle
Clint McMillan and a bunch of un-
derclassmen on the inside.
"One soldier goes down, another
soldier has to step up," McMillan


said. "That's something they've got

Injuries further weaken defense


UF freshmen reunite


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

UF freshmen Ndidi Madu and
Kerri Simpson's history as team-
mates started long before they came
to Gainesville.
The pair played together on the
Nike Tennessee Flight Silver team
during the summer of 2006.
But their distance from each other
- Madu lived outside Nashville,
while Simpson was closer to
Chattanooga, Tenn. kept them from
facing off in a high school game.
Still, Madu and Simpson shared
high opinions of each other's skills
from the beginning.
"She was fast," Madu said about
the 5-foot-7 guard. "She played hard."
Simpson regarded the 6-foot-1 for-

ward highly, as well.
"I knew Ndidi was going to be a
remarkable player because she always
had athleticism," she said. "She can
jump out of the gym. She can shoot.
She has all the
characteristics of a
ballplayer."
After traveling
Women's together on their
AAU team, the two
Basketball struck up a bond off
the court, too.
When it came
time to decide the next step in their
basketball careers, Madu was pleas-
antly surprised by what Simpson had
to say.
"We were on the phone one day
and I asked her what were the schools

everyone knew the Gators would have
trouble filling the hole at free safety left
by Reggie Nelson.
But who would have guessed cornerbacks
Ryan Smith and Reggie Lewis would be irre-
placeable, too?
And linebackers Brandon Siler and Earl
Everett?
And defensive tackles Marcus Thomas,
Steven Harris, Joe Cohen and Ray McDonald?
Everybody should have known the de-
fense could not be rebuilt in the span of a few
months.
I watched Knowshon Moreno spin past
Brandon Spikes, and Mohamed Massaquoi
sprint past Joe Haden and Tony Joiner, and as
I saw Georgia score at will, it did not surprise
me in the least.
Before the season, Urban Meyer expressed
worries about his young, inexperienced de-
fense.
It's the middle of the season, and the defense
is still young and inexperienced, and now in-
jured, too.
It could be that way for the rest of the season
and the bowl game, so get used to it.
Against Georgia, they committed mistakes

and three touchdowns the last two seasons.
With UF's soft coverage in the secondary, Bennett
could have a field day against Joe Haden this week.
That's not the only concern, however.
Linebackers Brandon Spikes and Dustin Doe have
performed well, but neither has made a game-changing
play in weeks.
Instead, the Gators have given up fourth-down con-
versions on 12 of 18 attempts and rank 10th in the SEC in
third-down defense.

Davis said they've been running

didn't have technique."

Simpson figured they would always end up going to the

"We always clicked," Simpson said of

go to the same school."
UF coach Amanda Butler expects good

"Generally, kids who come from

Butler said.
Of course; Tennessee roots aren't always a good thing when
you decide to attend a rival Southeastern Conference school.
Simpson's cousin, JaJuan Smith, is a guard for the Tennessee
men's basketball team.
"He always said when I was able to beat him, I'd be able to

i'I Not officially associated with the University VOLUME 101 ISSUE 49 the independent florida of Florida Published by Campus Communications, Inc. of Gainesville, Flonda We Inform. You Decide. LOCAL Meyer's deal keeps him out of court By KIM WILMATH Alligator Staff Writer kwtlmath@alliigator.org Andrew Meyer will not face criminal charges if he completes 18 months of voluntary probation, the State Attorney's Office said in a news release Tuesday Meyer must also donate $150 to the American Cancer Society or perform 10 hours of community service, records stated. Meyer, a UF telecommunication senior who was Tasered during a forum with Sen. John Kerry on Sept. 17, was originally given felony and misdemeanor charges that could have meant up to five years in prison. State Attorney Bill Cervone wrote in the release that Meyer did not pose any risk to the safety or peace of the community. Meyer released apology letters to the UF community, the University Police Department and UF President Bernie Machen on Monday. The UF and UPD letters were mandated by the State Attorney's Office as part of Meyer's deal. The deferred prosecution agreement, which was finished Wednesday, was not filed with the court until Tuesday so Meyer could complete these letters. Meyer has also accepted punishment from UT for. violating the Student Code of Conduct, but the details of his penalty could not be disclosed. Meyer's attorney, Robert Griscti, said Meyer has withdrawn from classes because of the aggressive attention he's received from students and the media. He plans to retum in January, Griscti said. "I do not believe a Taser should have been used on me," Meyer wrote on his Web site. "Tasers are not 'non-lethal."' However, the Police Benevolent Association, a police advocacy group that staged a news conference in front of Tigert Hall on Tuesday morning, said Tasers are widely accepted as injury-reducing devices. UPD belongs to the group. The group said a Wake Forest University study of 962 Taser cases found no deaths, and 99.7 percent of the Tasered individuals had no injuries or only mild injuries. Many of the mild injuries were caused because people fell down after the shock, the study stated.

By KATIE GALLAGHER Alligator Writer kgallagher@alligator.org With trick-or-treaters on the streets and parties all over town, Halloween could mean extra work for police. Gainesville Police Department spokesman Lt. Keith Kameg said he expects GPD to stay pretty busy in the days surrounding Halloween. "It's not uncommon that we'll respond to 50 or 60 calls a night around Halloween weekends," he said. Sgt. Keith Faulk, spokesman for the Alachua County Sheriff's Office, said he expects to get a lot of calls on Wednesday night, as well. "In comparison with a home football game, it would probably be higher than that even though it's celebrated in the middle of the week," he said. University Police Department spokesman Capt. Jeff Holcomb said PubliC Halloween is a quiet night on Safety campus. The dorms aren't a big destination for partygoers, he said. Also, UPD doesn't deal with the safety issues of trick-or-treating because the dorms are only open to residents, he said. Kameg said he considers Halloween to be a major holiday in Gainesville, but it's calmed down since the mid-'80s, when people would attend a Halloween ball he described as "Sodom and Gomorrah." "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" B Tuesday's story about Andrew Meyer's apology prompted hundreds of comments at www.alligator.org. Check out a sampling of the responses on pg. 7. "Halloween is pretty laid back," he said. "It's just really busy because people go out and have a good time." He said he doesn't see too many problems with pranks or mischief. Faulk said he's seen few problems, too. "We do get calls of eggings and toilet paper and shaving cream," he said, "but not any major issues." Police seldom see permanent damage from vandalism, he said. Kameg said that while police aren't looking to arrest anyone for it, another issue might be indecent exposure. "Some of the costumes are clothinglight," he said. Faulk said drivers should be careful to keep their eyes on the road and not be distracted by people wearing costumes in other cars.

4, ALLIGATOR E WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2007 CITY COMMISSION East Gainesville project approved Meyer video, calls released By KIM WILMATH Alligator Staff Writer kwilmath@aIligator.org On the day he was Tasered, Andrew Meyer told his mother he was happy because his arrest would bring important issues to light. Recordings of Meyer's first telephone call from the Alachua County Jail and videos from inside the police car that took him there were made available Tuesday, the same day his probation notice and personal statements were released. During his first call, he told his father, Joel Meyer, that he knows he got "excited" at the speech by Sen. John Kerry on Sept. 17, but he didn't think it warranted getting Tasered and arrested. "What a joke," Meyer said when his Local dad picked up. "What happened to the NeWS First Amendment, right?" Joel Meyer reminded his son not to say anything he'd regret, to which Meyer responded, "You wanna sue the bastards?" Meyer and his father speculated about "FBI henchmen" who they said were probably listening to the conversation. When he addressed "whoever is listening," Joel Meyer said, "If you touch a hair on his head -if anything happens to him -there's gonna be really recourse." During a call the next day, Meyer joked to his father that the jail was enjoyable. "I wanted to smile for my mug shot," Meyer said. Joel Meyer reminded his son to be humble. "No smiling, you know, for the cameras," Joel Meyer said. In the car the day before, Meyer asked police about the legality of his arrest, chatted with them about the UF football team and complained about how tight his handcuffs were. "I can't feel the circulation in my hand here,.bro," Meyer said. He asked officer Lynn Mallo to explain why he was charged with resisting arrest with violence. "I would have never hit you," he said. "You were just doing your job." Mallo said she was trying to help Meyer by telling him to calm down. "Honestly, I read '1984,' and I felt like, likeyou guys were gonna take me out back and execute me," Meyer said, leaning forward in his seat. "I was so scared." Mallo assured Meyer police wouldn't kill him. the Gainesville Regional Airport had earlier expressed concerns that part of the development would be within the Airport Noise Zone. The developers cannot build residences in industrially zoned land near the airport, com-Hanrahan missioners ruled, though the developers still want to build in the area. Charles Roop / Alligator Staff Members of the Police Benevolent Association hold signs during a news conference in front of Tigert Hall on Tuesday morning. The developers will have an opportunIty to re-present a modified application if they decide to, Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan said. The commissioners are waiting to hear back from the Federal Aviation Administration to get a better understanding of how close residential buildings can be to the airport. The development could include 1,199 residential units, an assisted living facility and 200,000 feet of office and commercial space. police group Supports Tasers EYER, from Page 1 Florida chapter of the association, said he's been Tasered before and it wasn't that bad. "For five seconds, it's really horrible, but by the seventh second, it's over," Oberlin said. He said the organization was disappointed that UF's Committee on a Civil, Safe and Open Environment does not include any police officers. Machen created the committee the day after Meyer's arrest to examine UF's policies on student forums and police protocol. "You don't have a climate control study without people who understand the climate," Oberlin said. In fact, he added, creating a committee isn't even necessary since the officers followed the law. As for Meyer, he said he's leaked a lot about expressing himself throughout the ordeal. "I felt that being adamant and confrontational about my beliefs was the right way to effect change," Meyer wrote in a statement. "I was wrong." Meyer wrote that his main goal is to educate people about the need for fair elections. Meyer was attempting to ask Kerry about the 2004 election before police tried to take him outside the auditorium. In the statement, he apologized to Kerry for accosting him. "My issues are not so important that I need to shove them in anyone's face," Meyer wrote. first Responder For class information cal: (Prereq. for UF Student Health Care Center at 352-3921 61 x4283 or visit www.shcc.ufl.edu University of Florida Student Health Care Center GET YOUR BEAT T-SHIRT FOR THE SWAMP!

Kendrea Ivery Jones, 23, and Latoya Lashae Williams, 22, were charged with grand theft and sent to Alachua County Jail, a report stated.

6, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2007 Editorial Happy Halloween We put local celebs into the perfect costumes N0, there's not a Victoria's Secret show downtown tonight. It's Halloween, arguably college students' favorite holiday. Drink specials abound, costume contests bring out the best -or worst -in everyone, and of course, our favorite part: half-off candy tomorrow. As we sat in our office decorated with real spiderwebs and severed body parts (much scarier, don't you think?), we thought about what we'd like to see everyone dressed as this year. So let us entertain you as you prepare for tonight's parties and put the finishing touches on your costume. We thought long and hard about what UF President Bernie Machen would dress up as, but we finally decided he should spend tonight as a deranged dentist, because really, what's scarier than spending an hour in that chair? Plus, that's what Bernie is tenured as, so it's perfect. We can already see him with a Halloween Horror Nightsworthy drill, covered in blood. He'd wear a necklace of his victims' -ahem, patients' teeth. He'd floss our teeth until our gums bleed and instead of filling our cavities, he'd drill us new ones. Worst of all, that's not a shot of Novocain. Student Body President Ryan Moseley should dress up as David Beckham, since his parents are British. Moseley and Beckham have the same pretty-Brit-boy look. Student Senate President Kevin Reilly would dress up as his lovely wife Posh Spice. Together they'd cause a sensation on the third floor of the Reitz Union -and a highly fashionable one, at that. As Gainesville's mayor, Pegeen Hanrahan deserves to spend the day dressed as a queen. In her beautiful gown and lovely crown, she'd transform Gainesville into a magical realm with one wave of her wand. Towing problems: solved! Traffic lights: synchronized! The Oaks Mall: better stores! Ai, it's good to be queen. Age of Dinosaurs professor Paul Ciesielski would dress up as a Tyrannosaurus Rex but end up looking more like a rock. Andrew Meyer would dress up, of course, as a disenfranchised voter. Gators quarterback Tim Tebow could dress up as a priest. We can only hope his vial of Holy Water and his cross can exorcise the demons that have been haunting the football team, before it faces Vanderbilt -a team that's given us close calls in the past few years. Word on the street is that the towing companies all banded together to have a costume party -and all their employees are dressing up as pirates. Go figure. Economics professor Mark Rush could dress up as a slice of pizza from Leo's, and the Director could go as a Burrito Bros. burrito. We just hope they don't accidentally eat each other. Billy Donovan and Urban Meyer would dress up as Mario and Luigi. Using their superpowers, they'd lead their cast of characters into Bowser's castle to rescue Princess Peach. Or they'd just take their teams into championship games and win. Yeah, we like that much better. But how awesome would it be to see them dressed up in those matching red and green outfits? Whatever you decide to dress up as tonight, we hope you have a great Halloween. a ll inac.enet or-id. ,liao Lyndsey Lewis EDITOR Adam Berry MANAGING EDITOR Jessica Holland OPINIONS EDITOR Jessica Miller Leigh Shapiro EDITORIAL BOARD The Afigetor encourages comments from readers.

Opinions ALLIGATOR www.aIligator.org/opinion Hey kids, what's the BEST Halloween treat you got this year?!? Column Halloween history explains traditions or this week, I'm adding a little holiday twist to my work -for Halloween, not Homecoming. Vincent Massaro, the Monday columnist, might disagree, but I've seen some strange happenings around Gainesville over the ptst few days, things that might have something to do with the supernatural themes Oct. 31 entails. This year's pumpkin crop suffered from bad weather. Andrew Meyer did an about-face and apologized for his actions at Sen. John Kerry's forum. Gov. Charlie Crist finally approved a few tuition and fee increases. But Halloween still has historical and spiritual significance beyond candy and costumes. Tomorrow, Nov. 1, my Catholic grandparents will go to church to celebrate All Saints' Day. As the name indicates, it is a special day set aside for all of the saints in the church. From their perspective All Hallow's Eve is the vigil held before the service. However, when Catholicism made its way up to the British region in medieval times, the Brits, Scots and Celts mixed the Christian tradition with their own pagan festivals, the most famous being Samhain, a celebration when people would parade around in animal-skin costumes. That's why the holiday conjures up more images of witches, ghosts and black cats than of feasts or crosses. Historically, other legends surround Halloween, contributing to its mystique. The Celts believed sacrifices were necessary to appease evil spirits, so they left food and sacrifices for them, which became the root of trickor-treating. The Romans had a festival that honored Pomona, the goddess of fruit trees who was often depicted wearing a crown made of apples. This led to the tradition of bobbing for apples. The use of orange and black for Halloween has its oriH. Vincent Gagiano letters@alligator.org gin in the occult. The unbleached beeswax candles used in church services for the dead were colored orange, and caskets were draped in black. On a side note, a few magicians will hold seances for Harry Houdini today, 81 years after he died from a punch in the stomach. Every year they hope the world's greatest escape artist can flee from the trap of death, but every year they come away disappointed. Don't blame your religious friends for being skittish about participating in such pagan rituals. I attended a high school affiliated with the Presbyterian church. Every year on Halloween night, the church holds a "Creation Celebration" in lieu of all the aforementioned rituals. Of course, candy and costume parties are still present, and everyone has a good time. Ultimately, the most important thing is to know the history of Halloween, or any other holiday, in order to truly understand and celebrate its purpose. Also, Halloween is the inaugural festival for a litany of other fall and winter celebrations, the most prominent being Thanksgiving and Christmas. And for UF, Halloween falls on the week of the Homecoming parade, Gator Growl and the Homecoming game against Vanderbilt this year. So until then, have fun, don't drink too much at parties and enjoy having Friday off so you can scream your lungs out for two fantastic days. Oh, and wish me luck -I've heard its dangerous to spend tonight in Broward Hall. Vincent Gagliano is a sophomore majoring in physics. His column appears on Wednesdays.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2007 0 ALLIGATOR, 7 Letters to the Editor Meyer not responsible for others' reactions I am writing to express my dissenting opinions from those expressed in Tuesday's editorial, "Over and Out." I am disappointed that it repeatedly blamed Andrew Meyer for all of the reactions to the Tasering incident. Yes, Meyer is responsible for actions at the Sen. John Kerry forum. However, he is not responsible for how UF administrators, students and.the world responded to his actions. It is not his fault that the Kevorkian speech got moved to next semester. This is the responsibility of the community of which we are all a part. By attending this university, we are agreeing to support its policies. If we do not, it is our responsibility to change them. Please pardon the suggestion if it sounds patronizing, but if you don't agree, please read Plato's "The Republic" and take a course on political philosophy Ondi Crino UFgraduate student GPS plans will make students' bus rides better Student Government was pleased to note on Monday that the Alligator is anticipating the global positioning system improvements for Regional Transit System just as much as we are. However, with such a focus on the timeline and cost of implementing GPS on RTS, students still don't know how much they will benefit from these improvements. SG is sure this is a huge step for a system that students interact with on such a regular basis, and will help all Gainesville residents better control their travel and their time. The most observable results would be access to an online map of the RTS bus routes, tracking the location of buses in real time. On top of that, students will be able to send text messages and receive responses with the projected arrival time for the nearest bus to each stop on its route. There will also be several LCD screens placed at major stops on campus, including proposed screens at the Hub and Rawlings bus stops. These screens will display maps of all the routes which run through the stop. Technology plays a huge role in the lives of UF students. With these improvements, SG is helping to bring RTS up to the modern standards of instant communication. While these benefits will certainly help students, the most important benefits won't be immediately apparent. RTS will be able to track bus movementsin a more precise manner, buses will arrive at more even intervals and RTS will also be able to couple the information gained from GPS and rider-counting in order to design more efficient routes. This will ultimately translate into improved and more consistent wait times for students. Ultimately, installing GPS on RTS buses will provide many immediate benefits, but more importantly, it will create an avenue for improvement by laying the foundation for future change. SG is dedicated to not only improving the lives of students, but making a positive impact on the community that supports our university. We are sure that this program will help improve Gainesville and UF for current and future generations of Gators. Kim Cruts SG press secretary Editor's note: The following comments appeared on www.alligator.org in response to Tuesday's article "Meyer apologizes in letter to students." I have to admit, I suddenly like him a whole lot more. Tarantula I know he was definitely at least a bit RUDE and he was asked to stop his turn -however, he was expressing political views while asking a few questions at a political'town hall' meeting. Since when can't an American be outraged and demand answers at an 'open' town hall meeting? The use of force was entirely unnecessary. The speaker supposedly wanted to answer the question(s). Why not allow some political discourse? Jeff Shame on the university. Shame on the police. He did the only thing he could do in order to finish his school. Sad day for freedom. We have less every day. Aleon Free speech is just that. You can say what you want; doesn't mean the rest of us are required to listen, especially if the speech displays a total lack of respect. I disagree with Sen. Kerry on just about everything, but he still deserves to be spoken to with respect. Passion is great, it motivates one toward a goal, but it must be tempered with good judgment. If you allow your passion to overtake your good sense, no one will ever take you seriously. Dakota A willingness by this "out of control" student to "accept punishment" is admirable, but only if real punishment is imposed. How about several weekends in jail! Ted G. Geogia's laughing at you! Gator cops were pretty stupid. This.story is running worldwide because it's about the cops using the Taser, not anything said or done by A.M. or John Kerry. Are you blind? NoR does anyone wonder why so many MILLIONS across the world were outraged? Think about it. Ruff the Bulldog If you still think the mess.is about him asking questions, YOU are clueless. His behavior and the way he acted brought about the Tasering -NOT what he asked. Talking over people, cutting the line, yelling out of turn and when approached in a request to cease the show he was putting on and leave, he resisted. Oh -I forgot -you think that freedom of speech translates anything goes. my bad. not about free speech I dislike this kid now. Ridiculous. Why the heck would he apologize? Man this kid has no due and half the world doesn't either. Tom What a farce. The media are overplaying this. Thanks, Internet. Don't tax me, bro! Tase me and Amaze me If Meyer just asked to speak kindly, I'm sure the police and security would have been nice and let him speak. John Kerry was probably going to answer all the questions without trying to change the questions. I mean, come on, what are we here? People who think the police and the politicians are unreasonable? Sally "Andrew Meyer has raised the bar.Personally, I no longer respect protesters that merely wave signs, smear fake blood on their faces or scrawl catch phrases on Tshirts. If you can't take the Taser, you're a wimp. And no, this isn't a plug for wimp.com" Timbo For all of you who insist that he shouldn't have been asked to leave (andcremoved when he didn't), I challenge you to go to your next local PTA, town council, county board of supervisors meeting or any public meeting, and behave the way Andrew did. You will be removed, one way or another. It's not a free-speech issue, it's a conduct issue. Doug I think what's important here is that Meyer admitted he was wrong and apologized. Anyone that thinks it's a First Amendment issue needs to do some serious research and reading. Lets all sing it together: Meyer was wrong -Yes, he was -Yes, he was -Meyer's supporters were wrong -Yes, they were -Yes, they were. Repeat twice. Kenny "Buy this punk some socks."

14, ALLIGATOR 1 WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2007 Gators to wear orange, black in Halloween match UF middle blocker Kisya Killingsworth spikes the ball during UF's sweep of the Mississippi Rebels on Sunday afternoon. 0 UF PLAYS ITS SECOND MIDWEEK GAME OF THE SEASON. By EVAN DREXLER Alligator Writer Tonight, in a rare midweek match, UF plays a South Carolina team (11-12, 4-10 Southeastern Conference) that should be frightened to face the No. 10 Gators (201, SEC 13-1). Since Mary Wise became the coach in 1991, UF has won seven of its eight matches on Halloween. The only loss came in a sweep at the hands of Florida State in 1994. Current seniors have fond memories of a Halloween sweep over Mississippi State in 2004, and two seniors have pleasant recollections of non-volleyball Halloweens earlier than that. Senior outside hitter Marcie Hampton's favorite Halloween costume as a child was the blue, puffy-leg getup of Princess Jasmine from the Disney movie "Aladdin." "I was really excited about it, but it was really, really cold outside," she said. "So I had to wear a jacket over my costume, and that was devastating. "It was just heartbreaking. I really loved my costume." Senior middle blocker Kisya Killingsworth also had her share of costumes growing up, though she admitted she is more into Thanksgiving and Christmas than Halloween. She usually spends Halloween night at her computer, handing out candy when someone rings her doorbell. "The coaches do a really good job of keeping us on a similar schedule no matter where we are when we actually get there." Marcie Hampton UF senior outside hitter The only costume she can remember is when her mother dressed her up as a clown one year. "I probably was a clown back then," Killingsworth said. Though they won't be wearing any costumes tonight in South Carolina, they still get to dress up for the occasion a little. The team will try to be festive by wearing its orange-and-black jerseys, Hampton said. The Gators learned from their loss at South Carolina last year -the only SEC venue where they lost -and plan to stay concentrated on volleyball. Tonight will be the team's second and last Wednesday home match of the season. Last time, the Wednesday match was followed by a loss to Arkansas in a Friday match. This week, the Gators will not play again until a Sunday match against that same Razorbacks team. The midweek match can cause problems for the team's rhythm, but the coaches are not going to let that happen. "The coaches do a really good job of keeping us on a similar schedule no matter where we are when we actually get there," Hampton said. "We need to make sure that's not a factor when we get ready to play." What will be a factor is South Carolina's home atmosphere. "Any time you play on the road, it's tough," Hampton said. "And then you play in a smaller gym, the crowd's right on you and the facility's pretty tight. We're going to have our work cut out for us." UF FOOTBALL Freshman backup center practices with defensive line By JENNA MARINA Alligator Staff Writer jmarina@alligator.org UF offensive lineman Mike Pouncey practiced with the defensive line Tuesday, Gators coach Urban Meyer said. The defensive line took a major blow this week by losing starting defensive tackle Javier Estopinan, who tore his anterior cruciate liga~ Five or rmaore sunburns double your risk of developing skin cancer. Pra ecr yv ri at. ment in the Georgia game. Tackles Terron Sanders (left high ankle sprain) will miss several weeks, and Brandon Antwine (lower back) is likely out for the season. Pouncey is currently listed as the backup center to Drew Miller and, as a recruit, was ranked as the seventh-best offensive guard in the nation, according to Scout.com. In mid-October, Meyer said he expected Pouncey and his twin brother, Maurkice, to have bright futures with the Gators. MOVING ON UP: Redshirt freshman Justin Williams could work his way into the Gators' receiving corps, Meyer said. Williams notched two tackles against the Bulldogs for a season total of five.

Sports WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 31,2007 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSportS.org FOOTBALL Davis, Marsh expected to step in for depleted D-line By BRIAN STEELE Alligator Staff Writer bsteele@alligator.org When it comes to UF's young defensive linemen, it's better to let them explain what practice has been like recently. "It's been like hell -straight hell," a panting Torrey Davis. said. "I'm getting better, but it's hell." With starting tackle Javier Estopinan out for the year with a tom left anterior cruciate ligament, the Gators don't have many options left. Reserve tackle Brandon Antwine is also probably done for the season with lower back issues. A few weeks ago, losing reserve redshirt freshman' Terron Sanders to a high ankle sprain wouldn't be a big deal. Not anymore. "Right now, it's a mash unit," UF coach Urban Meyer said. "We're trying to get that pieced together." UF's line is in such shambles it had backup offensive lineman Mike Pouncey practice at tackle Tuesday Now it's redshirt senior tackle Clint McMillan and a bunch of underclassmen on the inside. "One soldier goes down, another soldier has to step up," McMillan By PHIL KEGLER Alligator Staff Writer pkegler@alligator.org UF freshmen Ndidi Madu and Kerri Simpson's history as teammates started long before they came to Gainesville. The pair played together on the Nike Tennessee Flight Silver team during the summer of 2006. But their distance from each other -Madu lived outside Nashville, while Simpson was closer to Chattanooga, Tenn. -kept them from facing off in a high school game. Still, Madu and Simpson shared high opinions of each other's skills from the beginning. "She was fast," Madu said about the 5-foot-7 guard. "She played hard." Simpson regarded the 6-foot-i forNBA: Dallas at Cleveland ESPN, 8 p.m. N NBA: Seattle at Denver ESPN, 10:30 p.m. said. "That's something they've got to do or we won't be successful. I've got to be a leader for these young guys,' and when you're in that fire you've got to step up." Coming off a game where the Gators' run defense gave up 188 yards and three touchdowns to Georgia redshirt freshman Knowshon Moreno -who was the third-string back before injuries -UF is in trouble. "It's been like hell Straight hell." Torrey Davis UF defensive tackle "We got punched in the face last week," freshman lineman Duke Lemmens said. "There's no more time to say that we're young. There are no more excuses. We're going to have a fire come out from under us this week." Without Estopinan, the Gators' best run-stopper, Meyer said Davis and Lawrence Marsh are now focal points in the rotation. Meyer didn't name Davis the starter, but he has SEE FOOTBALL, PAGE 16 ward highly, as well. "I knew Ndidi was going to be a remarkable player because she always had athleticism," she said. "She can jump out of the gym. She can shoot. She has all the characteristics of a ballplayer."

Injuries further weaken defense veryone knew the Gators would have trouble filling the hole at free safety left by Reggie Nelson. But who would have guessed cornerbacks Ryan Smith and Reggie Lewis would be irreplaceable, too? And linebackers Brandon Siler and Earl Everett? And defensive tackles Marcus Thomas, Steven Harris, Joe Cohen and Ray McDonald? Everybody should have known the defense could not be rebuilt in the span of a few months. I watched Knowshon Moreno spin past Brandon Spikes, and Mohamed Massaquoi sprint past Joe Haden and Tony Joiner, and as I saw Georgia score at will, it did not surprise me in the least. Before the season, Urban Meyer expressed worries about his young, inexperienced defense. It's the middle of the season, and the defense is still young and inexperienced, and now injured, too. It could be that way for the rest of the season and the bowl game, so get used to it.

With UF's soft coverage in the secondary, Bennett could have a field day against Joe Haden this week. That's not the only concern, however. Linebackers Brandon Spikes and Dustin Doe have performed well, but neither has made a game-changing play in weeks. Instead, the Gators have given up fourth-down conversions on 12 of 18 attempts and rank 10th in the SEC in third-down defense. While Derrick Harvey and Jermaine Cunningham have pressured the quarterback at times this year, the interior of the defensive line has been sliced thin by injuries.Desperation reared its head Tuesday, as backup center Mike Pouncey practiced at defensive tackle. Next thing you know, Tun Tebow will line up at nose guard. He did so in his last high school game on the final series of a 2005 state championship game. Don't get me wrong, UF's defense could be great in a couple seasons. Haden, Spikes, Doe and Major Wright could be AllAmerica candidates in the future. They say Tebow's tears can cure cancer, but all it's going to take is time and patience to cure UF's defense. A Holiday Gift Guides 2007 What's on your wish list?

"She said she already committed to UF. I said: 'Wow I'm looking at UF. That's where I really want to go.' That's how me and her got close. We communicated all the time after that." Simpson figured they would always end up going to the same place. "We always clicked," Simpson said of their time at Flight Silver. "We were always the two together. We just thought that we'd go to the same school." UF coach Amanda Butler expects good N things from the Tennessee pair. "Generally, kids who come from Tennessee have been very well coached and are used to high levels of expectations," Butler said. Of course Tennessee roots aren't always a good thing when you decide to attend a rival Southeastem Conference school. Simpson's cousin, JaJuan Smith, is a guard for the Tennessee men's basketball team. "He always said when I was able to beat him, I'd be able to play in the SEC," Simpson said.
