Student groups shell out money for intricate floats


* THIS YEAR'S PARADE WILL
FEATURE 70 FLOATS.

By STEVEN WEINER
Alligator Writer

With 70 floats entered in UF's
Homecoming parade, crowds can expect
to see live music, local celebrities and colos-
sal robots rolling down University Avenue
today.
Local businesses, fraternities, sororities
and student organizations spent weeks
designing and building the floats.
Max Weiss, UF's Homecoming parade
director, said both the Benton Engineering
Council and UF Surf Club have a history of
making great floats.
Bentley Zephirin, a UF civil engineering
junior, is the Homecoming director for the
Benton Engineering Council, which helps
coordinate laws and standards among en-
gineering organizations on campus.
Last year, Zephirin was the designer for
the council's "Back to the Future" float. It
featured the time-traveling DeLorean car
crashing into a 10-foot-tall model of UF's
Century Tower.


The scene included the characters Marty
McFly, Doc Brown and Mr. Two Bits.
Like most floats, the council's was
primarily made of wood, cardboard and
chicken wire, but it featured two smoke
machines to create the effect of the car's
engines, Zephirin said.
The cost was $1,100, which is about the
same expected cost for this year's float, he
said.
Todd Kinsey, UF Surf Club president,
said his group's float is not about elaborate
designs but about getting the crowd excited
and having fun.
Last year's float featured the local reg-
gae band "Juice" as its main attraction, said
Kinsey, a UF telecommunication senior.
Along with the band, more than 40
people packed onto the truck bed, turning
the float into a traveling party.
For fraternities and sororities, the
Homecoming parade represents the cul-
mination of a week filled with social events
boosting school spirit, said Brian Engel,
Homecoming float chairman for the Sigma
Phi Epsilon Fraternity.
Twelve fraternities and sororities have
paired up and entered six floats into today's
parade, he said.

Parking problems can intensify during Homecoming


Some lots are set aside for students


By MARY MANCONE
Alligator Contributing Writer

Days before the Homecoming
game, the hunt begins. People start
searching, swerving and weaving in
and out in search of the right park-
ing spot.
"When you get a parking pass,
it's not, 'You have a spot,'" said
Mark Ray, a resident assistant at
Murphree Hall. "You have the right
to hunt for a spot."

ber of people wanting to park on

campus will drastically increase
while the number of available
spaces significantly decreases,
said Ron Fuller, assistant director
for Transportation and Parking
Services.
Students can be displaced by the
lack of parking, but UF's transporta-
tion division sets aside parking lots
outside of Tigert and Criser Halls
specifically for those students, he
said.
Students have a chance to park in
those spaces until midnight before
the game, after which anyone can
park there.


Ray said that the Wednesday be-
fore the Homecoming game, he will
search for spots in these designated
areas.
He said he does not always find a
parking spot and
Around ends up mov-
Gainesville ing his car to a
friend's apart-
ment complex, where he can get a
visitor's pass.
After students have been given
the opportunity to find other park-
ing spots, any remaining cars in
reserved areas are towed.

responsible for the certain parking
lots on game day, Fuller said.
At the large commuter lot on
Gale Lemerand Drive, remaining
cars are towed, but only to the grass
area. Cars are then ticketed, but the
owners are not charged a towing fee.
Transportation services pays the fee.
"You're being inconvenienced,"
Fuller said. "We're not trying to
find a way to get more money out
of students, but we've got to clear
the lot."
On game day, when tailgaters
start appearing on campus, trans-
portation services transfers almost
all responsibility to the University
Police Department and the


University Athletic Association.
"The closer you get to game
time, Ocala may be the next option."
Fuller said.
Lt. Chuck Snowden, of the park-
ing unit and special services at UPD,
said that with thousands of people
coming to campus, parking does
become an issue.
Usually, though, UPD has few
problems with tailgaters. Tailgaters
do a good job of cleaning up after
themselves, he said.
As long as they stay out of re-
stricted parking lots, fire and bike
lanes, taped off areas, service drives
and sidewalks, they will not be tick-
eted or towed.

HOMECOMING

Growl skits expected to top last year's


* THE SKITS ARE NOW
PRERECORDED.

By SARA RUBIN
Alligator Contributing Writer

It may be hard to imagine
Steve Spurrier having a direct
effect on the production of
theatrical skits, but like his
playbook, the 01' Ball Coach is
full of surprises.
Gator Growl skits changed
from live performances to
video recordings at Spurrier's
behest.
When Spurrier had natural
grass laid on Florida Field in
1990 to replace the AstroTurf,
performers were prohibited
from running on the field, said
Aron Weingard, producer of
Gator Growl.
As a result, performers
began videotaping skits and
have never turned back.
"I'm maintaining a poker
face, but it's going to be great,"
Weingard said of the skits.


Weingard said even though
the main theme of the skits is
always based around campus
jokes and athletic rivals, new
technology has created oppor-
tunities for the highest quality
of production.
The staff is willing to do
whatever it takes, no matter
how much time is involved, to
create the best possible skits,
he said.
"For every minute of foot-
age, we probably spend over
an hour of filming time," said
Michael Jordan, creative co-di-
rector of Gator Growl.
The process of creating a
skit begins with the seven-
member creative team brain-
storming ideas, writing and
editing a script, casting actors,
filming and editing, Jordan
said.
An element of surprise is
important for the success of
the skits.
For that reason, the skits
are only pre-screened by a
select few directors on staff


before the show. ;:
No more than 10 directors
will have seen them before
they are viewed by thousands
of people.
"The show as a whole is
going to be one of the
best shows that stu-
dents, alumni and the
Gainesville community is
ever going to see."
Michael Jordan
creative co-director of Gator
Growl

Jordan said different video
elements, including songs,
sound effects and footage,
give pre-recorded skits an ad-
vantage over live ones.
"When you see a musical,
it's one-dimensional," Jordan
said.
"But on screen you can re-
ally accomplish a new look
that isn't possible on stage."
Video can be taken from


five of 10 different views at
once, which gives the staff
flexibility to choose the funni-
est or most creative version for
the audience.
The screening process for
actors was more intense this
year, and the overall quality is
the highest ever to be seen at
Gator Growl, he said.
No individual characteris-
tics of the skits make them the
best yet, he said, but rather a
combination of factors.
"Our video editor shoots so
tight and makes it so crisp that
each of our skits are like short
films," Jordan said.
Commercials will also be
acted out, he said.
Instead of showing cameos
all at once, as the 2006 show
did, they will be spread out
during the entire Gator Growl
show.
"The show as a whole is go-
ing to be one of the best shows
that students, alumni and the
Gainesville community is ever
going to see," Jordan said.


Growl nets


sponsor
By EVA MAE SMITH
Alligator Contributing Writer

Gator Growl is taking on a
private title sponsor for the first
time in its 84-year history.
Thanks to this year's Verizon
Wireless sponsorship, Growl will
feature increased lighting and
fireworks, said Aron Weingard,
producer of the event.
Sponsorships for Gator
Growl have been sought for the
past three years, he said, but this
year, a team was able to increase
the amount of money brought in
by a single sponsor from about
$5,000 to $50,000.
Paul Drayton, chairman of
the Student Senate's budget
committee, said SG typically
provides about $11,000 through
ads to Gator Growl.
This year it provided about
$5,000.

Editorial
Ah, Homecoming weekend. The grills are lit, the RVs
are parked, the beer is on ice. We'd be lying if we said we
don't enjoy it. Even though Archer Road is more packed
than a tin of sardines and our favorite bars are at capacity,
we wouldn't trade this three-day weekend for anything.
But who are we kidding? The Department of Darts &
Laurels knows this weekend is about one thing and one
thing only: football. So enjoy the parade, laugh your butt
off at Gator Growl and yell out "Free bird!" when that
band comes on. But most of all, we're looking forward to
the game. Until then, we present the touchdown edition
of...



Darts-& Laurels
First up, a Tebow-style-stiffarm-run-for-a-first-down
LAUREL to the Panhellenic Council's Junior Panhellenic
Division for its annual "Ghouls, Goblins, and Greeks"
event. The Halloween extravaganza provided Gainesville
residents a safe place to bring their costumed kids where
they could play games, meet SpongeBob SquarePants and
of course, collect tons of candy. Plus, what could be cuter
than all those adorable kids in costume?
Next we have to give a fake-punt-trick-play LAUREL
to Graduate Assistants United and Students for a
Democratic Society for staging a protest about giving
teaching and research assistants more time to pay their
fees. As much as it pains us to say that SDS actually pro-
tested something worthwhile, we'll give them credit for
this one.
As we said in Thursday's editorial, it's not fair for our
TAs to have to shell out for all of their fees at a time when
money is invariably at its tightest. It makes much more
sense for them to be able to have their fees deducted from
their paychecks throughout the semester. We go to a uni-
versity, for crying out loud someone should be able to
figure out how to make this happen.
Perhaps someone like a chief financial officer? We give
a dem's-mad-recruiting-skillz LAUREL to UF adminis-
trators for hiring Matthew Fajack to be UF's new CFO.
The title may sound like something more appropriate for
Morgan Stanley, but it's time we realize UF is basically
a corporation and a multi-million-dollar one, at that.
Fajack will have to analyze UF's finances and make recom-
mendations pertaining to them.
As much as it makes UF seem even more impersonal, in
this time of budget cuts and financial woes, UF must have
a CFO if it wants to stay on top of its game.
We've got a the-play-clock-is-winding-down-and-
thank-God LAUREL to the end of the Andrew Meyer
ordeal. Now that all the investigations are complete and
the punishments meted out, hopefully we can all get back
to normal. And who knows, maybe Meyer will be able to,
as well. Then we can go back to thinking about the first
Meyer: Urban.
In case you're a little hungover after partying all night
on Halloween or Thursday night or even Friday, have we
got a cure for you. We have a better-than-spaghetti-and-
Gatorade LAUREL for Starbucks, which is churning out
mochas at its newest Gainesville location in the Reitz
Union. While we hate that Starbucks is taking over UF
- not to mention the world we know it's a damn good
way to make some much needed moolah.
Finally, we close with a Tebow-throws-to-Harvin-who-
runs-in-for-a-TD-to-beat-the-Commodores-by-about-100-
points LAUREL to the Gators football team. We're confi-
dent they'll win this one and make us bowl-eligible. We'll
see you Saturday in the Swamp.

WOULD SOMEBODY PLEASE JUST LET

THE GATOR GROWL ALREADY!?! WE'VE BEEN


Column

Study abroad can come home to you


don't know about you, but spending a semester
abroad is something I've been thinking about doing
since arriving at UF.
It's such an appealing option for students because
studying in a far-away country is like embarking on a
really long vacation that just happens to get you college
credit.
Every time I strike up conversation about study-
abroad opportunities with my family, I usually get the
same response: My parents suggest places I should
spend a semester so it will give them an excuse to visit,
and my little brother recites the same joke and I use
the term joke in the loosest way possible.
It goes something like this: "So, uh, I think I wanna
study abroad when I get to college, too. I just don't
know what her name is yet."
Baa-dum-tchhh.
I know, hilarious.
But anyway, in preparation for my study-abroad
excursion, I opted to live with an international student
this year in order to form friendships with overseas stu-
dents and become more culturally inclined.
My roommate is from England, so I thought it
wouldn't be too different from having an American
roommate because of two very important factors: We
both speak English, and we both love Harry Potter.
It just so happens that our cultures aren't completely
alike, but we enjoy spending time comparing and con-
trasting.
Often, my English roommate, her English friends
and I sit around for hours and play a heart-thumping,
jaw-dropping, riveting game of. "What's It Called?" The
premise is quite simple: Say a word, and then name all
the possible cultural variations of that same word.
This game can become quite lengthy, even rival-
ing epic Monopoly sessions. Some terms, though, like
"creeping Jesus," have no cultural equivalent, while


others could spark a lengthy list.
For example, "fries" to us are
those wonderfully golden strips
of greasy potato that we techni-
cally shouldn't eat, because they
are what doctors and fitness
Colleen Shea gurus deem "unhealthful" and
letters@alligator.org possibly deadly.
To the English, "fries" are
called "chips," and "chips" are
called "crisps" except, under certain circumstances,
"chips" are actually "chips" and not "crisps" but
we'll ignore that for now. It's too advanced.
Speaking of chips, my new English friends are con-
stantly shaking their heads in shame at America's un-
addressed national crisis known as the Fish-and-Chips
Situation.
They do not believe in fish fingers or fast-food fish
because "Fish does not belong in a drive-thru and
should be served with real crisps, not soggy fries." I
agree wholeheartedly, and we should really do some-
thing about this grave situation.
Speaking of drive-thrus, my English friends have
also pointed out just how many fast-food joints we have
in America one for nearly every letter of the alpha-
bet. That struck me as kind of sick and twisted, until I
remembered that the alternatives to fast food are either
going to a sit-down restaurant, where you have to wait
for food, or cooking.
So the moral of this story is, if you want to study
abroad, it would be a good idea to live with interna-
tional students. And if you don't want to study abroad,
that's OK, as long as you at least visit a country where
they sell fish and chips that don't come from a drive-
thru.

Letters to the Editor
Greek event great for Gainesville's children
My husband and I wish to express our gratitude
to all of the sororities that participated in the "Ghouls,
Goblins, and Greeks" event on Halloween. All of the
girls were so caring and wonderful with our kids,
and the effort spent decorating the houses, making
costumes and creating games for the kids' enjoyment
was so appreciated by our family. Our children, who
are ages 3 and 1, had a fantastic time, and we all hope
to participate again next year. Thank you again for the
wonderful Halloween experience.
Kelly Kirkpatrick
Gainesville resident



SG deserves praise when merited
The Alligator editorial board should give credit
where credit is due. When our Student Government
leaders got library hours extended for finals, the edito-
rial board decried SG for not doing more.
Apparently it's easy getting the administration
to fork over $5,000 per semester, and apparently
you're damned if you do and damned if you don't.
Yesterday's editorial faulted the Student Senate for
not working harder. The truth is, senators cannot pass
a bill extending library hours.
Their responsibilities lie almost exclusively in al-
locating the Activity & Service Fee to fund things such
as the Reitz Union, the gyms and student organiza-
tions. While an individual senator can sponsor resolu-
tions in-support of an idea, these are rarely effective.
Passed Senate resolutions may theoretically carry
power, but in practice they have proven to be almost
worthless. Instead, the administration regularly seeks
approval from the Student Body president, who holds
the mandate of the greater student body.
I recognize SG's flaws should be elucidated by a
vigilant press. However, when our leaders succeed,
they deserve a mature press corps that doesn't criti-
cize for the sake of criticism.
Ryan Nelson
former student senator


Alligator unfairly criticizes groups' good works
These past few weeks I have seen continuous neg-
ative coverage by the Alligator editorial board wan-
tonly slamming whole groups of students, namely
Greeks and SG, for mostly negligible offenses.
Heck, even in SG's case they did something, yet
the Alligator felt it necessary to continue-its mudsling-
ing campaign. In the case of the Greeks, the councils
took steps to help safeguard Homecoming, and the
Alligator responded by writing what seemed like a
fair editorial but ended in a tongue-in-cheek jab.
Yes, the Greeks and SG do fall short, but they fall
short while aiming higher than all those around them.
I applaud them for striving valiantly in the face of
ridicule and criticism. However, I hope the Alligator
editorialboard rises to-new heights and leaves this
deplorable, immature smear campaign to lesser in-
dividuals.

Free speech essential for democracy
I don't understand some people's view of "free-
dom of speech." It is evident to me that people who
publicly violate the law during peaceful, political dis-
course are met with praise rather than scorn.
I'd like to live in a place where, if I'm disappointed
with my government, I can freely question my lead-
ers in a public forum without being silenced by other
attendees. I want a place that can use legal precedent
to remove those who violently infringe upon my
freedom. Also, if a person violently resists, my law
enforcement has an effective, non-lethal response.
Luckily, I live in a place like that at UF. It's nice to
know that if someone like Andrew Meyer keeps an
entire room full of people from freely discussing their
political views, he can be removed. Maybe now our
community is free to ask "the hard questions" without
such unlawful interruption.

5. We love a parade. When else do we get to
see politicos wave as if they were the queen of England?


4. Let the Gator Growl. Skits, celebs,
surprises. What more could we need?


3. Fireworks. There's something about explosives
that warms us inside.


S2. A day off from school. As if we needed
another reason to get drunk.


1 Football! Enough said.

HOMECOMING

Performers look forward to large crowds at Growl


By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Alligator Writer
dculclasure@alligator.org

UF students can expect a
mix of up-and-coming talent as
well as tried-and-true success at
tonight's Gator Growl.
The 84th annual Gator Growl,
billed as the world's largest
student-run pep rally, will kick
off at 7 p.m. at Ben Hill Griffin
Stadium.
Comedian Frank Caliendo
is the headlining act at Gator
Growl, and Southern-rock band
Lynyrd Skynyrd will also per-
form.
Caliendo is an impressionist
known for his imitation of politi-
cal figures and celebrities such as
John Madden, George W. Bush
and Robert De Niro.
He will receive $50,000 for his
performance.
Caliendo's credits include a
role on "MADtv" as well as fre-
quent appearances on "Fox NFL
Sunday" and "Late Night with
David Letterman."
On his Web site, Caliendo
describes his show, "Frank TV,"
as a mix of "The Muppets,"
"The Simpsons," "Saturday
Night. Live" and "Second City
Television," a Canadian comedy
show from the late '70s and early
'80s.
Aron Weingard, Gator Growl
producer, said Caliendo's com-
edy appeals to a wide variety of
people.
"His brand of humor relates to
a broad audience," he said.
"Frank can reach into the
audience's world and use voices


and facial expressions to make
common stuff funnier."
Caliendo wrote in an e-mail
that he couldn't wait to perform.
"It's going to be a crazy ex-
perience," he wrote. "I've never
performed in front of so many
people before."
Caliendo said he practiced
impressions his entire life before
he seriously pursued his hobby
during his sophomore year of
college.
"It's going to be a crazy
experience. I've never per-
formed in front of so many
people before."
Frank Caliendo
comedian

He said students can expect
some of his older impressions,
such as Madden, as well as
some new ones that could in-
clude Charles Barkley and Jeff
Goldblum.
Dancing would be another
prominent feature of his perfor-
mance, he added.
Caliendo also compared the
perks of performing in different
mediums and venues.
While his role on "Fox NFL
Sunday" allowed him to make
fun of Terry Bradshaw, and his
own TV show lets him dance to
his heart's desire, Caliendo said
live stand-up is "fun because
you get to have that immediate
reaction."
While Caliendo might be a rel-
ative newcomer, Gator Growl's
second main act, Lynyrd Skynyrd,


has been playing Southern-rock
hits for nearly 40 years.
Lynyrd Skynyrd, which will
receive $150,000 for the perfor-
mance, was inducted into the
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in
March 2006.
Though a 1977 plane crash in
Mississippi killed three members
of the original band, which is
based in Jacksonville, four origi-
nal Lynyrd Skynyrd members
still play today.
Johnny Van Zant, brother of
original lead singer Ronnie Van


Zant, took over as lead singer in
the late '80s.
In an October e-mail, Van Zant
said the band is excited to play in
Gainesville.
"We are looking forward to
playing Gator Growl!" he wrote.
"We've always been big Gator
fans."
Van Zant said Gainesville is
one of the first areas the band
played outside of Jacksonville.
A favorite venue was the Great
Southern Music Hall, he said.
"My favorite memory of


Gainesville would be as kids,"
Van Zant wrote. "We went there
a lot and had friends that lived
there."
Van Zant said UF students
could expect to hear hits such
as "Free Bird," "Sweet Home
Alabama" and "What's Your
Name."
When asked why he thinks
Lynyrd Skynyrd's music has held
appeal for nearly 40 years, Van
Zant wrote he thinks it's because
the group's music "is real songs
about real life."

Unlike FSU, UF's pep rally caters mostly to families


* FSU'S HOMECOMING SHOW,
CALLED POWWOW, FEATURED
SARAH SILVERMAN THIS YEAR.

By NINA MAHMOUDI
Alligator Contributing Writer

It's that time of year again.
It's the time of year when University
Avenue shuts down for the colorful floats
parading around town.
It's the time when alumni flood city
streets and parking lots for the big game.
And, of course, the time for guests
to pile into Ben Hill Griffin Stadium for
Gator Growl.
Growl staff members say they are try-
ing to get back to the Growl traditional
image a family-oriented pep rally for
all of The Gator Nation by featuring come-
dian Frank Caliendo, a star of the TV show
"Madtv," and Southern-rock band Lynyrd
Skynyrd.
While some students are excited for the
acts, others are disappointed.
Kayla Kurtz, a UF animal science junior,
said she will bypass the show this year and


go home for the weekend instead.
"Lynyrd Skynyrd, I know them," she
said.
"But they aren't actually the original
Lynyrd Skynyrd."
Anna Murphy, Growl spokeswoman,
said Caliendo has a "broad" appeal for
audiences.
Lynyrd Skynyrd was also invited to
create a traditional pep rally while honor-
ing the recent success of Gators sports, she
said.
Murphy said organizers tried to keep
the diversity of attendees in mind when
deciding who is going to perform at
Growl. "The Gator Nation is not just stu-
dents," she said.
"We are trying to register to an audi-
ence that incorporates younger siblings to
grandparents."
In contrast to Gator Growl, Florida
State University's Homecoming rally,
called PowWow, is organized exclusively
to the desires of students.
Comedian and actress Sarah Silverman
was featured this year, and Stephen
Colbert appeared last year.
Adam Sterritt, associate director of stu-


dent activities at FSU, said the university
normally tries to get a big name or the hot-
test comedian at that time.
He said students are polled months
before the show to see which comedians
students want to see.
"We have a really student-heavy show,"
he said.
Murphy, the Gator Growl spokeswom-
an, said having Dane Cook as a performer
in 2004 was a turning point for the "largest
student-run pep rally."
State Cook used vulgar lan-
News guage and seemed to en-
tertain only students, said
Murphy.
His performance was not received well
by some members of the audience.
Randy Talbot, executive director of the
UF Alumni Association and a member of
the Class of 1975, said shows like that one
"run the risk of offending the very people
that are supporting the show in the first
place."
Murphy said that alumni are not the
only demographic considered when dis-
cussing what act to feature.
Murphy explained that when a per-


former who is popular at a particular time
is brought in for a show, organizers can
run the risk of that person no longer be-
ing in fashion by the time the show comes
around.
She also said performers these days
seem to be genre-specific.
Somebody like Justin Timberlake would
only appeal to some audience members of
Gator Growl, Murphy said.
She said Lynyrd Skynyrd was a great
choice because the band's music is time-
less and not pigeon-holed to one type of
person.
"When I told my little brother that
Lynyrd Skynyrd was coming to perform,
he was so excited," Murphy said.
Other students are also excited about
the event.
Nika Merta, a mechanical and aero-
space engineering graduate student, said
she plans to attend.
She said she will also include her family
in the festivities.
"I got tickets for everyone before I even
knew who was going to perform," she
said.
"I've gone every year, and it's fun."

Parade brings road closures


By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer

Large portions of University
Avenue will be closed to-
day for Gator Gallop and the
Homecoming parade.
University Avenue will be shut
down from East Third Street to
West 22nd Street, according to the
Gainesville Police Department.
In addition, Main Street will
be blocked off between North
Second Avenue and South Fourth
Avenue.
Thirteenth Street will also be
closed between Northwest Third
Avenue and Southwest Fourth
Avenue.
The roads will close around
11 a.m., but the time will vary for
each one, wrote Sarah Wilson, a
GPD special events coordinator, in
an e-mail. Gallop is scheduled to
start at 11:30 a.m., and the parade
is set to start at noon.
The closures are the same ones
typically used for the Homecoming
parade but are still subject to mi-
nor changes, Wilson said.
Road closures for Gator Growl
have yet to be determined, but
Northwest 16th Avenue will be
closed near University Avenue
afterward for Later Growl at
Baptist College Ministries, ac-
cording to Wilson's e-mail.

New fireworks mean Growl will go out with a bang


By STEVEN WEINER
Alligator Writer

In addition to the traditional
overhead fireworks display in
tonight's Gator Growl, this year's
show will be brought to a new
and more personal level by using
indoor fireworks.
Although he said he didn't
want to give away any of the
show's details, John Feigert, who
works for the company taking
care of Gator Growl's fireworks
show, dropped a few clues about
some new effects in tonight's
show.
Feigert said this year, audi-
ence members should keep their
eyes not only on the stage but in
the stands as well.
To ensure the safety of the au-
dience and to bring the fireworks
closer to the spectators, Arthur
Portnoy, associate. director of
operations for Gator Growl, said
some of the technology being
used is fundamentally different
than what's been used in the
past.
Portnoy said the show will
cost between $15,000 to $20,000.
Because of the new indoor
technology, the cost has not been
determined.
"We're not necessarily spend-
ing more money than last year,"
Portnoy added. "We're trying


something different, and invest-
ing our dollars in this new tech-
nology."
Feigert works for Pyrotecnico,
one of the oldest and most estab-
lished fireworks companies in
the United States.
"We're not necessar-
ily spending more money
than last year. We're trying
something different, and
investing our dollars in this
new technology."
Arthur Portnoy
Gator Growl associate director of
operations

Pyrotecnico has done shows
for the Superbowl and Monday
Night Football, as well as the
2004 Democratic National
Convention.
Feigert said Pyrotecnico
designs dozens of kinds of fire-
works, all made to achieve differ-
ent effects.
"We have custom effects for
fast music or slow music, utiliz-
ing shells, roman candles, com-
ets, crossheads the list goes on
and on," he said.
Two computers coordinate to
ignite the fireworks in time with
a musical soundtrack to present
a synchronized display of light


and sound.
"Our computers know ex-
actly how long it takes for a spe-
cific firework to reach its target
height," Feigert said. "If it takes
three seconds to get up in the
air, the computer will know to
launch it at the right time so it
will explode on cue."
The timing and sequences of
the display are all programmed
into the computer, so the show
begins with the touch of a but-
ton.
Responding to spectator
concerns, Feigert said the Gator
Growl show has been designed
with audience safety in mind.
Audience members are at least
140 feet away from the launch
site, Feigert said.
"You might think so, but
you don't ever have fireworks
exploding over your head," he
added.
The addition of the indoor
fireworks will supplement the
technology of the traditional out-
door show.
Although computer technol-
ogy and new pyrotechnic chem-
istry will dictate the indoor show,
the basic science behind the out-
door fireworks has not changed
for more than 800 years.
Generally, a cardboard shell
called a mortar holds chemicals
in powder form, some of which


act as explosive fuels.
By adding large grains of cer-
tain chemicals to the fuel mix in
the firecracker, the fuel bums lon-
ger, producing a bright sparkle.
The kind of fuel is also important
to how a firework looks.
For example, when the ele-
ment strontium is burned, it
produces a red color while cool-
ing. Meanwhile, copper produces
blue.


Molly Telter/ Alligator Start
By combining elements in
certain proportions, chemists
and pyrotechnicians can create a
spectrum of designs and colors.
Feigert said Gator Growl
would also feature a wide variety
of fireworks.
"We have a different style and
presentation than we've had in
the past two years," Feigert said.
"There will definitely be a wow

Local celebs star in parade

Several UF notables will join sports
teams and Florida politicians in today's
Homecoming parade that starts at noon.
The honored guests include U.S. Sen.
Bill Nelson, state Sen. Steve Oelrich, sev-
eral state representatives and two Alachua
County commissioners, wrote Max Weiss,
UF Homecoming parade director, in an
e-mail.
UF President Bernie Machen, all of
UF's trustees, Gainesville Mayor Pegeen
Hanrahan and Student Body President
Ryan Moseley are also among the univer-
sity's VIPs.
Other UF groups, such as sororities and
fraternities, will participate as well, said
Elizabeth Davlantes, UF Homecoming
chairwoman.
Any group that creates a float for the
parade must stick to the Homecoming
theme of "Nation of Champions,"
Davlantes said.


"It's a great way to unite the whole city
in Gator spirit," she said.
The parade starts at University Avenue
and Gale Lemerand Drive and ends at
Main Street.
"I've been told I'm not a good waver,"
Moseley said. "I've got to start practic-
ing."

Moseley said he's got a lot to do before
the big event, including picking out an
outfit.
"It'll probably be something orange and
blue," he said.
Davlantes said parade participants
would not be allowed to throw beads or
any other objects to the crowd because of
Gainesville rules.


Donations may get boost


By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

UF alumni are coming home, and uni-
versity fundraisers are ready with open
arms and pockets.
While it's unlikely UF will receive
an influx of cash and checks over
Homecoming weekend, it gives the UF
Foundation, UF's fundraising organiza-
tion, the opportunity to mingle with
potential donors.
"A single event like a football game or
Homecoming doesn't necessarily bring
in a huge amount of money," said Chris
Brazda, a spokesman for the foundation.
"The donations we get come in over
time."
However, Brazda said any event that
brings UF alumni back to campus allows
UF fundraisers to show them places
where the university could use monetary
help.
Each of UF's colleges usually hosts


some kind of Homecoming event, such
as tailgate parties or special lectures.
The events raise awareness about
UF's accomplishments and goals, which
usually encourages future donations, he
said.
In addition, the Florida Blue Key
banquet, Homecoming parade and foot-
ball game always attract a large alumni
crowd, he-said.
Brazda said he
Homecoming couldn't estimate
2"7 how many donors the
foundation expects to
rub elbows with during Homecoming
festivities, and he didn't know how
much extra money might come in.
The foundation collects a range of
gifts from $50 to more than $100,000, he
said.
He added that the foundation does
not have a list of VIPs for donors to
charm this weekend.
He said as far as he's concerned,
"everybody's a potential donor."

PUBLIC SAFETY

Police officers expect few problems over weekend


By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer

For people who don't want to
get arrested during Homecoming,
University Police Department Lt.
Robert Wagner said to remember
three things:
Don't have an open container in
public.
Don't drink if you're under 21.
Don't urinate in a public place.


Staying
9? n


"Those are the three things I'm
sure we'll end up dealing with the
most," he said.
Otherwise, he expects
Homecoming weekend to be "rela-
tively easy."
UPD does not allow vacation
time during football weekends, he
said, so there will be a full staff of 13
officers at all times.
Extra officers will work the pa-
rade and Gator Growl and watch
over the TV trucks.


afe


safety tips for

weekend


Gator Growl is "a breeze" to
work, he said, because crowds are
lighter than at games. *
Wagner said he expects cooler
weather and fewer dehydration is-
sues for the game.
Lt. Keith Kameg, Gainesville
Police Department spokesman, said
he also expects little trouble.
"It's nothing compared to a
Tennessee weekend or a Florida
State weekend," he said.
He doesn't expect any fights to


break out.
"Homecoming, other than being
busy, is an easy event for us," he
said. "People come back, and they
don't really come back to be mad at
the opponent. They come back to see
their friends."
This means GPD expects more
small house parties than big blow-
outs, Kameg said.
Still, he said, GPD will have
larger party patrols out and be on
the lookout for drunken drivers the

day of and night before the game.
UPD does not have party pa-
trols on campus, Wagner said, but
will help GPD with drunk driving
checkpoints as needed.
UPD will also be on the lookout
for drunken drivers at a Driving
Under the Influence/Traffic Safety
Checkpoint, a UPD press release
stated.
The checkpoint, which is just east
of the intersection of Museum Road
and Radio Road, started Thursday
at 10:30 p.m.
Police will be checking for driv-
er's license, registration, seatbelts
and alcohol and drug use.
The checkpoint will be conduct-
ed by UPD with the help of GPD,
the Alachua Police Department, the
Florida Highway Patrol and the
city's Public Works Department.
Despite his good outlook, Kameg
said Homecoming is busy because
it is the only football game that in-
volves a pep rally and a parade.
Traffic is always an issue during
the event.
GPD will be readily available just
as during any football weekend, he
said.
Wagner agreed, saying, "There's
nothing specific we do that's differ-
ent."


Some UF employees must work during Homecoming


* THE PHYSICAL PLANT DIVISION
WILL HELP SET UP FOR THE PARADE.

By ILEANA MORALES
Alligator Writer
imorales@alligator.org

Not everyone at UF will have the day off
to watch the Homecoming parade today.
Steve Orlando, UF spokesman, said
some Physical Plant Division employees


would be working to set up for the parade
and Gator Growl. The University Police
Department will also have its officers on
duty, he added.
Jeff Chorlog, an associate director of the
Physical Plant Division, said employees
working today would receive eight hours
of holiday pay.
Hours worked can also be credited for
vacation time later in the year.
Three employees will function as a high-
reach support group for the Homecoming


parade. This crew will be in charge of a
120-foot-high lift for cameras to film the
parade on University Avenue between Gale
Lemerand Drive and Main Street.
Paul Vlahos, mainte-
Homecoming nimce specialist for the
2007 F aysical Plant Division,
said he expects a busy
day, particularly during
the setup and dismantling of the high lift.
"I imagine it's going to be hectic," said
Vlahos, who will be on the ground super-


vising the operation of the high lift. "I've
heard the stories from the other people
here. This is my first time doing this pa-
rade."
Some Physical Plant Division employees
will also work during Gator Growl and the
Homecoming football game.
Crews are assigned to tasks including
setting up trash cans, bleachers and bar-
ricades for the events.
"We gear for this parade all week long,"
Vlahos said.

After graduation, alumni return to changes at UF


Jeremiah Stanley/ Alligator
The University Corners project, which is in the works, is an example of changes in
Gainesville in recent years.


By KORI FREDERICK
Alligator Writer

With a student population of 30,000 and
a football team that once went 0-10-1 during
her enrollment, UF alumna Sharon Taylor
never thought her alma mater would come
this far.
Now, with the student body swollen to
50,000, the football team is the defending na-
tional champion, and the town bleeds orange
and blue seven days a week.
"Football was nothing like it is now," said
Taylor, who completed her undergraduate
degree in 1979.
"We never wore orange and blue to the
games."
With the kickoff of Gator Growl 2007,
Taylor reminisced about how the city and
university have changed since she attended
UF.
"It was a lot of fun," said Taylor, who
completed her law degree at UF in 1982.
"There was usually a big-name comedian,
lots of skits, we'd cheer on the football team
and there were fireworks at the end."
Taylor said she got to see headliners like
Bill Cosby, Bob Hope and Robin Williams at
Gator Growl.
Gator Growl has remained mostly un-
changed over the years, Taylor said.
It still features up-and-coming comedi-
ans, spotlights the football team and ends
with fireworks, but the live skits have been
replaced by videos.
After Growl ended, Taylor said she
would usually attend a fraternity party with


her now-husband Mark Taylor, also a UF
alumnus.
When she was in college, the legal drink-
ing age was only 18, she said.
"So you can imagine what that was like,"
she laughed.
There were often dances after Growl,
which she said she loved to attend.
Her favorite bar was a disco place down-
town called Nichol's Alley, which had a
lighted dance floor.
After she and her husband graduated
- they married in 1981 they continued to
come back to Gainesville for Homecoming.
"We came up a few
Around times after we graduated,
Gainesville but after we had kids, we
stopped coming up," she
said. "But we've always
been season football and basketball ticket
holders."
Over the years, she's watched the city
grow. She said the traffic congestion is much
worse, and there are a lot more apartment
complexes and restaurants, especially on
Archer Road.
She's also watched the campus grow.
While only a few new buildings have been
added to the main campus, she said the en-
tire southwest area of the campus is new.
"I used to live in married housing down
there," she said. "The gym did not exist."
But she's especially watched the pride in
the university grow.
"It's been so much fun to watch these
teams do so well," she said. "We've loved
it."


Homecoming can mean big business for local retailers


* GATORS GAMES BRING MORE
PEOPLE TO GAINESVILLE.

By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

As Gainesville prepares for an influx of
visitors on Homecoming weekend, so do local
businesses.
Brent Christensen, Gainesville Area
Chamber of Commerce president, said the
increase of people in the area causes a ripple
effect in the local economy.
Gators home football games have a large
impact on the community, Christensen said.
Home games affect a variety of businesses,


including hotels, restaurants and retail outlets,
he said.
Lynne Vaughan, director of the UF
Bookstore, said Homecoming is a great time to
draw in traffic to the bookstore.
It took less than two weeks for the store
to sell out of Homecoming T-shirts, and it is
ordering more, Vaughan said.
The store may also do pre-sales for a new
book called "University of Florida Football
Vault," a scrapbook of Florida football over
the years.
The bookstore should have a strong busi-
ness weekend thanks to the parade and foot-
ball game, she said.
"I think it's going to be a very fun
November," Vaughan said.


Sam Rappa, manager for Larry's Giant
Subs on West University Aventie, said extra
people work during Homecoming in order for
the store to be ready.

"We sell out a year in advance."
Karl Kaufmann
Holiday Inn University Center general
manager


However, not everyone sees a significant
change during the Homecoming weekend.
Karl Kaufmann, general manager of
the Holiday Inn University Center on West
University Avenue, said Homecoming is
not very different from other home football


weekends.
"We sell out a year in advance," Kaufmann
said.
People are allowed to book 50 weeks in
advance.
Four game weekends are already sold out
for next season, he said.
The Holiday Inn offers a lot of activities
around the hotel during Homecoming.
"We'll let families and kids up on the pool
deck so they can see the parade," Kaufmann
said.
Kaufmann said he appreciates the energy
of the Gators fans during home game week-
ends.
"Everyone who's coming here is coming
here for the same reason," he said.

Donovan set to help raise money during GatorWalk


By NICOLE FINE
Alligator Contributing Writer

After winning two national titles, UF
men's basketball coach Billy Donovan is
working for another repeat triumph this
time for premature babies.
Donovan and his wife, Christine, are
working with GatorWalk to double the
money raised to benefit the March of
Dimes.
More than 1,000 people walked in
the 2006 GatorWalk, which contributed
around $50,000 in donations, said Amanda
Casciotti, the GatorWalk director.
This year, the fourth annual five-mile
walk hopes to raise $100,000 and increase
involvement to more than 2,000 partici-
pants, she said.
Casciotti, a UF industrial and systems
engineering senior, said this year is going
to be bigger and better with many changes
from previous years.
A live performance by The Pearly
Whites, an Orlando hip-hop group, will
provide musical entertainment this year,

- Raised $50,000

- Featured more than 1,000 walkers

she said.
Local radio stations have provided the
music in previous years, she added.
The event will also focus on

of a child or are strong supporters of the

Betsy Trent, the North Central Florida

tor, said she's enjoyed working with the
Donovans.
"They are fantastic, very supportive
and very passionate about March of


Dimes," she said.
The Donovans will host the five-mile
walk as the honorary chairs, according to
a news release.
Casciotti said students who are inter-
ested in participating can register indi-
vidually or as part of a team.
Trent encouraged all students who are
interested to get involved with this year's
event.
"It is so important for students to get
involved because the statistics are only ris-
ing for the chances of having a premature
baby," Trent said.
The walk is scheduled for Nov. 18
from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and will start on
Turlington Plaza.
Registration must be completed online,
and the deadline is 1 p.m. on the day of the
event, she said.
Prizes will be awarded to top individu-
al and team fundraisers.
Paradigm Properties is also supporting
GatorWalk by providing a 12-month lease
for a three-bedroom apartment to the top
fundraiser.

HOMECOMING

Gator Growl continues evolving


* THE PEP RALLY STARTED
IN 1916, AND IN 1932 IT
BECAME GATOR GROWL.

By NINA MAHMOUDI
Alligator Contributing Writer

What started out as a simple
Homecoming tradition at an all-
male school has now blown up
what is billed as the largest stu-
dent-run pep rally in the nation.
Today, UF students can
celebrate 84 years of the UF
Homecoming tradition Gator
Growl.
The pep rally was started
in 1916, wrote Anna Murphy,
spokeswoman for Gator Growl, in
an e-mail.
As a tradition for the original
pep rally, freshmen contributed
the equivalent of their weight in
firewood for a giant bonfire, she
wrote.
This tradition was known as
"firing up" for the football game,
she wrote.
In 1925, the pep rally expanded
to include skits and performers,
Murphy wrote.
It was known then as a variety
show.
The show evolved into Gator
Growl in 1932.
That was also the first year
the pep rally was put on in the
stadium.

Barber was the first emcee of
Gator Growl.
Now, with more technology
available to produce digital skits,
along with live performances by
bands and dancers, more than 500
students work to put the show
together.
"It has now escalated to a pro-
fessional level, but still maintains
the spirit of what a traditional
pep rally is," Murphy said in an
interview.
"(Gator Growl) has now
escalated to a professional
level, but still maintains the
spirit of what a traditional
pep rally is."
Anna Murphy
Gator Growl spokeswoman


Unlike shows decades ago, this
year's show will feature "elabo-
rate pyrotechnics," light shows
and a celebration of many recent
national titles for UF's sports
teams.
The show has gained prestige
because of the reputation of past
Growl successes.
Past performers, including
Bill Cosby, Robin Williams, Jerry
Seinfeld and Billy Crystal, have
helped escalate the show's reputa-
tion of being more than just a reg-
ular university pep rally, Murphy


said.
Randy Talbot, executive direc-
tor of the UF Alumni Association
and member of the class of
1975, was at Growl when Robin
Williams headlined.
"When he came, I laughed so
hard I sweated," he said.
"He was 'raunchy,' or at least
what was considered to be the def-
inition during that time frame."
The show traditionally had two
comedians, but this year the staff
of Florida Blue Key, which puts on
Growl, has decided to change the
format.
This year, comedian Frank
Caliendo, who was a cast member
on the TV show "MADtv," and
band Lynyrd Skynyrd will head-
line the show.
. The stage will also be set on a
different side of Ben Hill Griffin
Stadium this year.
It will now be in the stadium's
north endzone.
Talbot said the purpose of
Gator Growl is not outdoing what
was done before but just produc-
ing a good show.
This year, ticket sales are not
the only thing funding the pro-
duction.
Verizon Wireless is sponsoring
the event, bringing even more at-
tention to an already hyped show.
This is the first year Gator
Growl has boasted a corporate
sponsorship.

City cleanup


crew will follow


parade floats

By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer

The last trucks to go by in the Homecoming parade
Nov. 2 won't be part of the entertainment. They'll be
filled with city employees to clean up the mess.
"The parade's not over until our trucks go by,"
said Gina Hawkins, a public education specialist with
Gainesville's Public Works Department.
The trucks usually consist of two street sweepers
and a large vacuum, said Steve Joplin, interim director
of the solid waste division.
Local Twenty to 30 people usually partici-
News pate, he said.
The cleanup crew comes mostly from
Public Works and the Parks, Recreation
and Cultural Affairs departments.
Hawkins said it takes them about three hours to get
all the way down University Avenue.
They pick up litter and empty trash containers on
both sides of the street, but they don't cross far into
UF territory.
The same employees also clean up before and after
football games and other major events in Gainesville.
"They've gotten plenty of practice with these
championship wins," Hawkins said.
The crew usually cleans up bottles and household-
type trash.
The arrangement is part of a deal with UF, which in
turn contributes monetarily to the city, Hawkins said.

UF women dominate 106-23


* ANEIKA HENRY LED THE
GATORS WITH 19 POINTS.

By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

It may not have counted in
the record books, but the UF
women's basketball team did
everything it could to erase the
memories of last season.
The Gators wiped out NAIA
Division-II Warner Southern 106-
28 Thursday night.
"Obviously we're very
pleased with the outcome," an
understated UF coach Amanda
Butler said.
"I thought we played re-
ally hard and whenever you can
spread the ball around and get
everybody an opportunity to
play and ... you feel like you get
better by the end of the game, it's
a great opportunity."
Junior transfer Aneika Henry
led the way for the Gators with
19 points and 10 rebounds.
"I think you got a glimpse of
what Aneika's impact is going to
be," Butler said. "Obviously with
that size, the catches she makes,
and the plays that she finishes,
and the rebounds she grabs, a lot
of other people just can't do those
things."
Junior guard Sha Brooks, who
contributed 14 points, loves the
post presence the 6-foot-3 center


brings.
"We've got someone who's
almost 7 feet tall, so you can just
lob it up there and she'll catch it,"
Brooks said.
Henry started in place of soph-
omore forward Sharielle Smith,
who is out four to six weeks after
suffering a stress fracture in her
right foot.
An injury bug that's already
knocked out two Gators almost
got worse when Brooks dived for
a loose ball and
got up slowly,
limping to the
bench.
Women's The junior did
Basketball not return dur-
ing the final 7:48
of the first half,
but she started the second half
and didn't seem to favor the leg.
"I'm good, I'm good," she
said. "I'm a soldier."
Butler didn't worry too much
when she saw Brooks on the
ground.
"You hold your breath a little
bit because we're a little thinner
than we would like to be," Butler
said. "But we're not going to
compromise how hard we play
because we're scared we're going
to get injured."
It seemed only appropriate
that this game would start with
the Gators scoring before any
time ran off the clock.
Warner Southern was charged


with a technical foul for not turn-
ing in its lineup on time. Brooks
stepped to the free-throw line
and made both shots to give the
Gators a 2-0 lead. if
UF scored the first 12 points
before Warner Southern guard
Ivana Soberal finally scored with
16:55 left in the first half.
UF ran up a 57-16 lead by
halftime on 64.7 percent shooting
from the floor.
The Gators totaled 57 points
or fewer in five regular season
games last season.
One thing Butler did stress at
halftime was rebounding, as they
led Warner Southern only 21-19
at the break.
The team responded, out-
rebounding the Royals 39-15 in
the second half for a 60-34 final
margin.
"When you go in the locker
room and issue a challenge and
your team responds like that,
then you certainly have to be
pleased,". Butler said.
She slowed down the pace
in the second half, dropping the
team back into a two-three zone.
"We could've continued to
run, but we didn't feel that was
the classy thing to do," Butler
said. "For us, we weren't getting
better shooting layups. So we felt
it was an opportunity to work
on our half-court execution and
even specific options out of our
half-court execution."


PICKS, from page 39


So far, the connotation doesn't seem to be
rubbing off. In its 118 years of existence, the
robber baron's football team holds a dismal
record of 546-538-50.
With a record like that, is it really possible
for the Rowdies to get rowdy?
"Absolutely, and especially we'll be rowdy
for Florida because we felt we got robbed two
years ago," Davis said. "We're a small school,
so there aren't as many of us, but we can pack
a mighty punch when we need to."
That's a pretty bold statement, and Davis
has the proof to back it up.
We asked Davis, if a robber baron squared
off with Tim Tebow, who would win the
fight?
"A robber baron, hands down, because he
could outsmart him," Lucas said.
But even that kind of trash talking seemed
to be a little too much for a Commodores fan,
who pointed out that Vanderbilt is all about
the love.
"We don't necessarily have massive rival-
ries, and nobody really hates us, and we don't
really hate anyone besides Tennessee," Lucas
said. "So we look forward to beating Florida
on Saturday, but we're also happy about the
success they've brought to the SEC."
What great sportsmanship. No wonder
Vanderbilt is horrible at football.
With that, on to the picks!
Tied for first with the guest pickers with a


46-34 record is Brian "I tried to pick up Georgia
chicks last weekend but scared them off with
my macramed pair of jean shorts" Steele, who
likes to belt out the lyrics to the Spice Girls'
"Wannabe" while in the shower. We just
hope he's not fantasizing about Baby Spice.
Batting second with a 43-37 record is
Bryan "My nickname in high school
was big, fat goalie" Jones, who likes to
eat sandwiches with his only friend, an
imaginary space cowboy named Maurice.
In third at 42-38 is Jenna "Dan Werner is
the next Larry Bird" Marina, who would
rather watch a Lifetime original movie in-
stead of the Patriots-Colts game Sunday.
Batting cleanup; with a record of 41-39, is
Nick "I wish I were sponge-worthy" Zaccardi,
who plans on spending his "Summer of Nick"
by watching Seinfeld re-runs while eating a
block of cheese.
In dead-ass last with a piss-poor record of
40-40 is Mike "I tried to dress up as Timon for
Halloween," McCall, who ended up settling
for a Rafiki costume when he couldn't con-
vince anyone to be his Pumbaa.

Wise persuaded hesitant McCray to follow sister to Gainesville


MCCRAY, from page 32


blocker, played a different position at UF
than Amber would.
Wise also played up the fact that Amber
knew a lot about how the program worked,
considering she had been around it for the
last five years.
Amber began to think it over, and as time
went on she realized UF had many of the
qualities she desired.
Aw weeks later, while playing out of
the country with the US Junior National
Team, she made her decision.
"She called me and said, 'Mom, I want to
go to Florida,'" Darlene said.
The outcome was unexpected, even to
her sister.
"Until the day she committed, I thought
she was going to Texas," Nicole said. "So
when she told me she was going to Florida,
I was ecstatic."
Torn from the Game
If Amber thought the recruiting process
was hard, she had no idea what was to fol-
low.
During the spring of her freshman year,
she tore her anterior cruciate ligament and


her medial collateral ligament in her right
knee.
She said practice started out just like
normal.
"I just jumped to hit a ball and landed
off-balance on one leg, and it just buckled,"
Amber said.
The injury posed her greatest challenge
yet.
"That was most definitely the hardest
thing I've ever had to do," Amber said.
"Because I've always been playing, whether
it was high school, club, summer league
with USA I've always been playing vol-
leyball."
Nicole knew just what her younger sister
was going through, having been.forced to
redshirt her freshman year after a rotator
cuff injury.
The toughest part might have been the
fact that Amber had seen action in 25 of 38
matches her freshman year, playing a key
role on a team that went all the way to the
national final before losing to Southern Cal.
The injury forced her to spend her second
year watching from the sidelines.
"I just told her to stay positive," Nicole
said. "I told her that (the) year was going to
go by fast."
Darlene also had an idea of what her


daughter was going through, having had
a similar but less-serious injury during her
basketball playing days.
Despite hearing that it was an injury that
might force Amber to quit playing volley-
ball, she stayed positive.
"I still wouldn't say 100 percent,
but I'm really working on getting
better every week."
Amber McCray
UF opposite hitter

"I always felt she was going to come
back," Darlene said. "I never felt any nega-
tives or spoke any negative statements to
her about her possibly not playing volley-
ball anymore. It was just a known to me that
she was coming back. I felt like God would
bless her to continue her volleyball career,
and He did."
Leaving her Legacy
Amber returned to the floor in spring
2005 in a scrimmage at Louisville.
She remembers trying to make up for it
all in one play.
"I was over-running every ball," she said.
"Mary could tell me, 'Amber you're really,


really anxious because you're so anxious to
be back.'"
It hasn't exactly been smooth sailing from
there, however.
All those volleyball swings over the years
took their toll on Amber's rotator cuff, and
she developed a tear last season. She sat out
some games, and Wise makes sure not to
overwork her these days.
"There's good days and bad days,"
Amber said. "I still wouldn't say 100 per-
cent, but I'm really working on getting
better every week, so that by the end of the
season and the postseason when it's really
counted, I'll be ready."
Still, she played well enough last season
to be named a second-team All-America
by both the American Volleyball Coaches
Association and Volleyball Magazine.
With her final season winding down
Amber will look to lead UF back to national
prominence.
The Gators have not returned to the Final
Four since her freshman season.
However it ends, Wise knows Amber has
made her mark at UF.
"Amber McCray's injuries she's had
the short end of the stick there," Wise said.
"But the legacy she'll leave is the persever-
ance. I've never seen anything like it."

UF BASKETBALL

Gators test lineups


By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
dklein@alligator.org

When UF coach Billy Donovan
said the Gators starting lineup
was due to change, he wasn't
kidding.
After beginning the game
with the expected setup of
Marreese Speights, Dan Werner
and the three-guard combination
of Walter Hodge, Nick Calathes
and Jai Lucas, Donovan began an
early-season experiment in UF's
97-51 victory over Flagler College
on Thursday night.
Donovan used 13 different
lineups in the first half alone.
He used the same five on the
court only twice.
Donovan said the changes
were more a result of fatigue than
anything else.
"We don't have quite an un-
derstanding of how hard we
have to play at this level to have
a chance to win," Donovan said.
"I didn't want guys to be play-
ing to keep themselves fresh. I
want them to play to exhaust
themselves.
"I think guys were giving ev-
erything they had out there. So
the lineups tonight were more
predicated on fatigue than any-
thing else."


Where Donovan will head
from here is hard to determine,
as the game against Flagler may
have left more questions than
answers.
The Gators got off to a slow
start in their exhibition opener.
At th 12-minute mark in the
first haL,. the lead was a mere five
points.

"I think guys were giv-
ing everything they had
out there. So the line-
ups tonight were more
predicated on fatigue than
anything else."
Billy Donovan
UF men's basketball coach


The Gators began to pull away
afterward, hitting a few outside
shots before forcing Flagler to
take a timeout trailing the Gators
34-17.
Sophomores Jonathan Mitchell
and Dan Werner both failed to
score.
Donovan did note after the
game that he thought Werner
played well without scoring,
which was evident by his seven
assists.
Mitchell was a different story.
He seemed shaky at times and


in victory

elected to pass rather than look
for his own shots.
Freshman Nick Calathes
proved he can compete at the col-
lege level in his first outing.
Donovan downplayed the
guard throughout the preseason,
but the coach showed his level of
confidence in Florida's two-time
Mr. Basketball.
Calathes played 33 minutes,
the most of any player.
He showed his versatility by
playing point guard, shooting
guard and small forward.
The freshman chased history
but came up two assists shy of a
triple-double in his first game.
Calathes scored 18 points,
grabbed 13 rebounds and dished
out eight assists.
Corey Brewer is the only play-
er in school history to achieve a
triple-double.
He recorded 15 points, 13 as-
sists and 10 rebounds in a blow-
out win against Jacksonville on
Dec. 18, 2005.
"I just try to fill the stat
sheet like coach tells me to do,"
Calathes said. "Just go out there
and play hard, do what I can to
win."
Speights led all scorers with
22 points.
All five freshmen tallied dou-
ble figures.

Lasting Impression


McCray decade comes to an end
1'


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

For the last 10 years, there's been a
McCray on the UF volleyball roster.
But that legacy is nearing its end.
Fizrt it was All-American middle blocker
Nicole.
Now it's her younger sister and the
Gators' starting opposite hitter, Amber.
"[My teammates] joke around and call
me 'Grandma,'" Amber said. "Partially be-
cause I've been here five years and partially
because they always say I'm old and falling
apart."
Either way, it's clear she's left an imprint
on the program.
Athleticism in the Genes
The McCray sisters seemed destined to
play sports as they grew up in Longview,
Texas.
Their parents met playing basketball at
Panola Junior College in Texas.
"We were constantly around some sort
of sports or watching sports," said Nicole,
Amber's older sister by five years, now the
volleyball coach at Georgia Southern. "Our
parents wanted us to play basketball, so
when we started playing volleyball, it was
kind of weird. But they jumped on board
and loved it ever since."
An athletic background helped McCray's
parents understand what their daughters
were going through.
"We knew about working hard, working
out, going to the gym, getting home late,"
said Darlene McCray, Amber's mother. "It
was really just'the family continuing on."
Amber remembers watching Nicole join
the East Texas Juniors, a club volleyball
teamni't age 12.
The next year, she wanted in.
"I begged my mom, because I just want-
ed to be on a team," she said. "I didn't care
that I didn't play. I just wanted to travel and


be on a team."
So Amber began her volleyball career
playing on the 12-and-under team at 8 years
old.
"My whole memory from that year is
watching the game from the sidelines," she
said. "I was awful. I might have got in to
serve a couple times in a year, and I missed
my underhand serve, but that was pretty
much my memory from that whole year."
Amber took a year off from club ball
during the sixth grade to play city-league
basketball, but she still played volleyball in
school.
Taking the time off from
club may have actually
helped her game.
Volleyball "It was funny, because
I'd say that was actually
the year I made the most
improvement because I went to my sister's
(high school) practices whenever I could,"
she said.
While she played basketball and ran
track throughout high school, she always
returned to volleyball, her favorite sport,
her first love.
Tough Sell
With her older sister playing at UF, it may
have seemed natural that Amber would be-
come part of the Gators when Nicole gradu-
ated.
While Amber had known UF coach Mary
Wise since the seventh grade, it wasn't the
quick decision Wise might have hoped.
"It was a really up-and-down process,"
Amber said. "For the longest time, I didn't
want to come to UF because [Nicole] came
here, and I didn't want to live in her shad-
ow."
Nicole did not try to sway her sister one
way or the other.
"Amber's her own person," Nicole said.
"I only talked to her if she needed me to or if
she asked for help with anything."
Darlene had watched one daughter play


out of state for four years and had bought
many plane tickets for Nicole to come
home.
As any mother might, she hoped Amber
would be different.
"I was trying to get Amber to stay in
Texas because that was my baby and I want-
ed her to be close," Darlene said.


Darlene said Coach Wise's visit to the
McCray home was a big factor in Amber's
decision.
Wise addressed Amber's concerns about
coming right in after Nicole.
She stressed the fact that Nicole, a middle

SEC sack leader Vanderbilt to test Tebow's mobility

Vanderbilt linebacker Patrick Benoist, top, celebrates with linebacker Jonathan Goff during
their 24-13 win against Miami (Ohio) on Saturday.


By MIKE MCCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alligator.org


Last week, UF proved that one bruised
shoulder can change an entire season.
With quarterback Tim Tebow's right
.shoulder hampering his running abilities,
Georgia was able to blitz early and often to
disrupt the Gators' offense.
The Bulldogs racked up six sacks -
more than UF had allowed all season in
the win that knocked the Gators from the
top of the Southeastern Conference Eastern
Division.
This week will carry the same concern
as No. 18 UF faces Vanderbilt, which leads
the SEC in sacks.
The Commodores are known for blitz-
ing opponents often, and the formula has
worked so far this season.
"On three out of four snaps, they are
bringing either four or five men," UF coach
Urban Meyer said. "They're bringing five-
man pressure a lot of times, they move their
front and they're disruptive.
"You have to be very, disciplined when
you play a team like that because they
cause a lot of lost-yardage plays."
If the threat of Tebow running is absent
for the second straight week, the Gators
can expect even more pressure from the
Commodores.
"We like to get pressure on the quarter-
back," said Vanderbilt linebacker Jonathan
Goff, who leads the team with 71 tackles.
"I'm really not sure how the coaches are go-
ing to call it, but we obviously want to get
to the quarterback any way we can."
What makes Vanderbilt's blitz scheme
hard to stop is its diversity alternating
between three and four down linemen and
sending different linebackers on each blitz.
In a 17-6 win against then-No. 6 South


Carolina two weeks ago, the Commodores
tallied seven sacks for a loss of 50 yards.
Regardless of Tebow's status, Vanderbilt
will bring the same pressure they have re-
lied on all year.
"We usually mix it up a little bit," Goff
said. "We have a game plan coming into the
week, and I don't think it will be anything
too different from what we normally do."
UF's offensive line was somewhat
blindsided by Georgia's persistent pres-
sure last week, but it is expecting pressure
against Vanderbilt.
"With Georgia, they don't blitz a whole
lot from the outside," UF center Drew
Miller said. "That's why it hit us as a sur-
prise in the beginning of the game, because
they're not a blitz-
i ing team.
"Vanderbilt is
known for .blitzing
V .. anyway. That's just
what they do. They
bring blitzes about
50 percent of the time, so we're just prepar-
ing for all of that this week."
Meanwhile, Goff and the Commodores
aren't sure which Tebow they will see
Saturday.
"If he's not going to run as much, I defi-
nitely expect him to try and spread the ball
around to those wide receivers and backs,"
Goff said. "He has a lot of offensive weap-
ons to work with.
"I just look for them to spread the ball
around to their athletes in open space,
where they can take advantage of their
athleticism and speed."
The best way to utilize that speed is still
with a healthy, mobile Tebow, and Meyer is
staying optimistic about Tebow's ability to
run this weekend.
"His shoulder is a lot better, so I hope he
will," Meyer said.

UF focused on record, not revenge against Arkansas


* THE RAZORBACKS HANDED THE
GATORS THEIR ONLY LOSS.

By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Writer

UF's defeat at the hands of Arkansas was
only three weeks ago, but it's a fading memory
for the Gators.
"We lost to them the first time, but that's
because our team didn't come in focused," se-
nior riddle blocker Kisya Killingsworth said.


"They beat us, but what are you going to do?
That loss has already come and gone."
Though the players may not feel like they
have to get revenge on the Razorbacks, their
opportunity comes Sunday at 1 p.m. in the
O'Connell Center.
If not for Arkansas' (10-14, 4-10
Southeastern Conference) win in Fayetteville
on Oct. 12, UF (21-1, 14-1 SEC) would be un-
defeated.
"I think more important than [revenge] is
maintaining our lead in the [standings]," UF
coach Mary Wise said. "And a win will do


that. Any loss brings us closer back to the pack,
and we're trying to win this outright."
UF currently holds a two-and-a-half-match
advantage over Alabama
for the best record in the
SSEC.
The Gators have
Volleyball more time to prepare for
Arkansas than they did
back in October. Instead of
only getting one day off between matches, UF
had three days of preparation and decided to
take Thursday off to relax.


"The weird schedule kind of bit us in the
butt last time," senior outside hitter Marcie
Hampton said.
Since the loss, UF has played five matches
and lost only one game.
The Gators have swept their last four op-
ponents.
Still, Wise and the Gators know better than
to take the Razorbacks lightly.
"Arkansas gives us matchup problems,"
Wise said. "The first time we played them,
we did not do a very good job preparing the
team."

Senior Night is generally on

The seniors will be honored in a

Though the senior class has re-
corded several big victories, there's
still one thing missing from its re-
sume: a national championship.
"A perfect ending would be a
national championship," forward
Ashley Harris said. "Having the
national championship ring ...
that's the bling bling. A national
championship would make it the
perfect season."

Pouncey impresses at DT


By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Staff Writer
bjones@alligator.org

Freshman Mike Pouncey continues to im-
press UF coach Urban-Meyer on the defensive
side of the ball.
A day after confirming the converted
center would play at defensive tackle against
Vanderbilt, Meyer left the door open for a
possible start by Pouncey.
I've seen energy, I've seen a young guy
that loves football, I've seen a tough guy and
a big guy," Meyer said. "He's got that big
ol' rear end you need in there to stop some
runs.
Meyer said it would be a game-time deci-
sion as to who will start alongside senior Clint
McMillan at defensive tackle.
Pouncey's only experience on the de-
fensive line until this week in practice was
playing in goal-line situations in high school,
Meyer said, so he still has a lot to learn about
the position.
"He's really smart," Meyer said. "There
is not an issue as far as football smart.

Pouncey is filling in due to season-end-
ing injuries to Javier Estopinan'and Brandon
Antwine.
Meyer hasn't decided whether the position
switch will be permanent.
The coach expects Carl
Johnson, Maurice Hurt
and Marcus Gilbert to help
replace Pouncey in the of-
fensive line rotation.


Pouncey's twin brother,
Maurkice, starts at guard
on the offensive line.


TAILBACK BY COMMITTEE: After declaring the
starting running back job "wide open" ear-
lier this week, Meyer said the Gators will go
with a committee approach Saturday against
Vanderbilt.
He said sophomores Brandon James, Percy
Harvin and Jarred Fayson, as well as junior
Kestahn Moore, will all carry the ball.
Moore lost his hold on the starting job af-
ter a mistake-riddled performance last week
against Georgia.

Tennis team depleted


By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Alligator Writer

The women's tennis team might
have the greatest ratio of injured
players of any UF team right now.
Only two of the seven Gators
on the roster will travel to the
Southeastern Conference Fall
Coaches' Championship at Auburn,
which lasts today through Sunday.
The rest of the team is nursing
injuries ranging from pulled muscles
to wrist and foot injuries.
Sophomore Megan Alexander
and senior Lolita Frangulyan will
represent the team in what will be the
Gators' last tournament of the fall.
Coach Roland Thornqvist hopes
to see improved play from the duo,
as each player lost dose matches
in the first round of the ITA South
Regionals.
"It's going to be interesting to see
... if they can translate that good play
(in practice) into good play in the


match," Thomqvist said.
The competition will be challeng-
ing at the tournament because most
of the elite players in the conference
did not qualify for the ITA National
Indoor Championships and will play
in Auburn instead.
Along with
competing in
singles play, the
Men's UF duo will -team
Tennis up on the doubles
court, where
Thornqvist would
like to see them continue fundamen-
tal and aggressive play.
"They're very explosive," he said.
As Alexander and Frangulyan fin-
ish up. the fall schedule, Thornqvist
is already focusing on the spring
season.
"We're hoping to get everybody
healthy at the right time," Thornqvist
said. "We just got to try to get
healthy, and that's probably our
main concern."

Commodores employ injured QB tandem with Adams, Nickson


ADVANCE, from page 39

into it, and we've still got to get some con-
tinuity in the recruiting and continuity in
the development. And that's why I think,
you look at a Vanderbilt, you look at teams
that have had that consistency, that's what
everyone is looking for."
Vanderbilt may use two quarterbacks
against the Gators Mackenzi Adams


and Chris Nickson.
Nickson played well against the Gators
last year, but Adams took the starting job
from Nickson earlier this season.
Both players suffered injuries last week
against Miami (Ohio), but both are expect-
ed to be ready for Saturday.
Meanwhile, the Gators will have to
fend off a tough Vanderbilt pass rush with
an injured quarterback of their own.
Tim Tebow's bruised right shoulder is
feeling better, Meyer said, but the injury


still could continue to restrict Tebow from
running as much as UF would like.
Facing a team that loves
to blitz, protecting Tebow
could be a .key for the
Gators, particularly after al-
Football lowing six sacks last week
against Georgia.
"How Tim handles [the pressure] is go-
ing to be about how the offensive line han-
dles it and how the receivers get open,"
Meyer said. "[Vanderbilt's] personnel is


SEC-caliber personnel, especially their
defense. I think their defensive personnel
is really good."
Despite the Commodores' improve-
ment this season, a loss to Vanderbilt
would still be embarrassing for a Gators
team that still has hopes of an SEC title.
"I think they still fit in that category
where we say we shouldn't lose to them,"
Caldwell said. "We have the better talent,
better athletes and we are more confident,
so they are still in that category for us."


BASES, from page 39

are not well suited to stop a wide
receiver like Bennett.
In this college football season,
everything has been wack, sure.
But did you really see UF
standing at just 5-3?
The Gators are more talented
than Georgia.
They're more talented than
Auburn.
They showed that talent
against LSU arguably the most
talented team in the nation and
had a respectable road loss.


After that game, Coach Urban
Meyer said the Gators will be
back smoking'. "
Sorry, Coach, but there hasn't
even been enough smoke to roast
a marshmallow lately.
UF isn't losing this game, but
the point is that you can't be
sure.
Yes, I think the Gators will win
out. But I said the same thing a
week ago.
As talented as UF is,
Vanderbilt could conceivably
come in and knock off the once-
called "Mighty Gators."
Even though UF is better than


both the No. 1 and No. 2 teams
in America Ohio State and
Boston College it doesn't even
deserve to play in its conference
championship game.
Where has the team that oblit-
erated Tennessee gone?
Even if the Gators sneak into
Atlanta for the SEC title game,
they got there through the help of
other teams.
They will have earned the
chance if other teams lose I've
never bought into the "you got
lucky" ordeal but you can't
say they're better than the other
contending teams.


Fact is, when South Carolina,
FSU and Vanderbilt look and see
UF on their schedule, they don't
cringe.
Instead, they see it as just
another opportunity. There's
nothing intimidating about a
three-loss team.
It's weird that 'Arizona State
losing a game is more of an upset
than UF losing one.
Even with all the roster turn-
around the Gators have this
year, you still expect a defend-
ing champion team to have some
aura around it. This team doesn't
have that anymore.


UF's defense had a teade-
marked toughness to it last year.
This year, you can tell they're still
a bunch of kids wondering how
prom went by so fast.
These underclassmen have
been through a lot a captain
getting arrested, a teammate's
death and three losses but they
have to put all that behind them.
That's over.
UF needs to figure out its
problems somehow.
Please, don't send fans to
the Liberty Bowl in Memphis,
Tenn., for a matchup against a
Conference USA team.

Vanderbilt isn't exactly known
for its football, but we at the alliga-
torSports brand picks column were
determined to find someone who
considers himself a Commodores
fan.
Meet Conrad G. Lucas II, co-
founder of Vanderbilt mega-fan
group, the Robber Baron Rowdies.
So apparently, there is more than
one fan. Who knew?
The Robber Baron Rowdies-were
formed this season by Lucas and
four of his friends, who decided to
throw Vandy's version of a tailgate
every week for home games.
Each Saturday, the group and its
mascot, Jack Whodat the dog, set
up tent in Vandyville and construct
a top-10 list for the Commodores'
opponent.
Past top-10 lists include "Lies
Told by Nick Saban" and "Hotty
Toddy, Gosh Almighty, These Ten
Things Would Suck."
Now, for those who don't know
what a robber baron is, let's take a
timeout for a little history lesson.
Robber barons were American
capitalists of the latter part of the
19th century who became wealthy
through exploitation. Cornelius
Vanderbilt made his fortune more
than a century ago by controlling
numerous ferry, steamship and rail-
road lines.
Lucas and his buddies decided
their university's namesake made
the perfect source for the title of
their tailgate.
"Robber barons were successful
and aggressive and well known for
being very good at what they did,"
Lucas said. "We want Vanderbilt
athletics to have those traits."

Gators look to rebound against Vandy

By now, the Gators should have
learned there are no easy victories in the
Southeastern Conference, but they will still
get their yearly reminder of that Saturday.
While Vanderbilt (5-3, 2-3 SEC) is tra-


ditionally supposed to be the conference's
bottom-feeder, UF (5-3, 3-3 SEC) has strug-
gled against the Commodores recently.
And this may be the best Vanderbilt
team yet.
The Commodores, who haven't been to
a bowl game since 1982, are just one win
away from being bowl eligible.
And at 5-3, they enter Saturday's game

with the same overall record as the Gators
and are just a half game behind UF in con-
ference play.
"They have some athletes out there that
make plays, and they're coached well,"
UF wide receiver Andre Caldwell said.
"They're a challenge to any team they
face."
Last season, the Gators needed to re-
cover an onside kick to ensure a six-point
victory against the Commodores.
In 2004, UF trailed Vanderbilt at halftime
before rallying in the second half.
But the Gators' biggest scare came in
2005, the last time the Commodores visited
The Swamp and UF coach Urban Meyer's
first game against Vanderbilt.
"They have some athletes out
there that make plays, and they're
coached well."

UF wide receiver

After squandering a 14-point lead with
less than three minutes remaining, the
Gators needed double overtime to pull off
a 49-42 victory.
"Whenever they play us, they come
ready to play," Caldwell said. "They strap it
up and get ready for us. We have to be more
ready and prepared than them this week to
win this game."
Meyer said Vanderbilt's improvement
comes as a result of Coach Bobby Johnson's
ability to build a consistent program over
time.
"Programs develop and recruit, we're not
a program," Meyer said. "We're three years

UF's championship aura no longer present


Watch out here come
the mighty Vanderbilt
Commodores!
Well, maybe not, but
the Commodores certainly
shouldn't be intimidated by the
Gators.
Not anymore, at least.
After the LSU loss, the
Gators had paved themselves
a path to win out. They'd likely
return to the Southeastern
Conference title game and prob-
ably would've been favored to
win it.
Then the Gators' defense let
a third-string redshirt freshman
crush them for 188 yards and
three touchdowns.
I don't care if Knowshon


Moreno is going to be one of the
most talented backs in the na-
tion next season he was mak-
ing just his second career start.
Moreno and his offensive line
outmanned, outhustled and
out-just-about-everythinged
the Gators on Saturday.
Now the intimidation factor
of being a defending national
champion is gone.
To any remaining Gators op-
ponents, the glimmer of those
championship rings means
nothing.
Any banners and signs
commemorating last season's
David-like championship victo-
ry against Ohio State are simply
gathering dust.

is stoked
about going against this de-
fense.
UF is still one of the most
talented teams in the nation,
but that hasn't transitioned to
the field.
The talent level between UF
and Vanderbilt is huge, but the
standings don't reflect that. The
Gators are 3-3 in conference,


and the Commodores are just a
half-game behind at 2-3. Vandy
even made a closer game of it
with Georgia in a 20-17 loss
than UF did.
The only opponent left on
the Gators' schedule that will
be lacking confidence against
them is Florida Atlantic, and
its mascot is an owl. Something
about a chubby bird whose best
asset is its keen eyesight doesn't
scream intimidation.

4, ALLIGATOR N FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2007 Student groups shell out money for intricate floats 0 THIS YEAR'S PARADE WILL FEATURE 70 FLOATS. By STEVEN WEINER Alligator Writer With 70 floats entered in UF's Homecoming parade, crowds can expect to see live music, local celebrities and colossal robots rolling down University Avenue today. Local businesses, fraternities, sororities and student organizations spent weeks designing and building the floats. Max Weiss, UF's Homecoming parade director, said both the Benton Engineering Council and UF Surf Club have a history of making great floats. Bentley Zephirin, a UF civil engineering junior, is the Homecoming director for the Benton Engineering Council, which helps coordinate laws and standards among engineering organizations on campus. Last year, Zephirin was the designer for the council's "Back to the Future" float. It featured the time-traveling DeLorean car crashing into a 10-foot-tall model of UF's Century Tower. The scene included the characters Marty McFly, Doc Brown and Mr. Two Bits. Like most floats, the council's was primarily made of wood, cardboard and chicken wire, but it featured two smoke machines to create the effect of the car's engines, Zephirin said. The cost was $1,100, which is about the same expected cost for this year's float, he said. Todd Kinsey, UF Surf Club president, said his group's float is not about elaborate designs but about getting the crowd excited and having fun. Last year's float featured the local reggae band "Juice" as its main attraction, said Kinsey, a UF telecommunication senior. Along with the band, more than 40 people packed onto the truck bed, turning the float into a traveling party. For fraternities and sororities, the Homecoming parade represents the culmination of a week filled with social events boosting school spirit, said Brian Engel, Homecoming float chairman for the Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity. Twelve fraternities and sororities have paired up and entered six floats into today's parade, he said. Scott Robertson / Alligator Staff Robert Moore, a UF freshman, moves a cardboard piece into place while assembling a parade float for the Benton Engineering Council. Parking problems can intensify during Homecoming Some /ots are set aside for students By MARY MANCONE Alligator Contributing Writer Days before the Homecoming game, the hunt begins. People start searching, swerving and weaving in and out in search of the right parking spot. "When you get a parking pass, it's not, 'You have a spot,"' said Mark Ray, a resident assistant at Murphree Hall. "You have the right to hunt for a spot." During Homecoming, the number of people wanting to park on The Glass Slipper Wefluy&SellWomensandJr' Cunt itles, Housres, Jewery& Acsoriea Openbe -Sat101n-5pnl 4 a555,52r5 372-6025 campus will drastically increase while the number of available spaces significantly decreases, said Ron Fuller, assistant director for Transportation and Parking Services. Students can be displaced by the lack of parking, but UF's transportation division sets aside parking lots outside of Tigert and Criser Halls specifically for those students, he said. Students have a chance to park in those spaces until midnight before the game, after which anyone can park there. Ray said that the Wednesday before the Homecoming game, he will search for spots in these designated areas. He said he does not always find a parking spot and -Around ends up movGainesville ing his car to a friend's apartment complex, where he can get a visitor's pass. After students have been given the opportunity to find other parking spots, any remaining cars in reserved areas are towed.

At the large commuter lot on Gale Lemerand Drive, remaining cars are towed, but only to the grass area. Cars are then ticketed, but the owners are not charged a towing fee. Transportation services pays the fee. "You're being inconvenienced," Fuller said. "We're not trying to find a way to get more money out of students, but we've got to clear the lot." On game day, when tailgaters start appearing on campus, transportation services transfers almost all responsibility to the University Police Department and the University Athletic Association. "The closer you get to game time, Ocala may be the next option." Fuller said. Lt. Chuck Snowden, of the parking unit and special services at UPD, said that with thousands of people coming to campus, parking does become an issue. Usually, though, UPD has few problems with tailgaters. Tailgaters do a good job of cleaning up after themselves, he said. As long as they stay out of restricted parking lots, fire and bike lanes, taped off areas, service drives and sidewalks, they will not be ticketed or towed. -. Same. day scheduling -.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, 5 HOMECOMING Growl skits expected to top last year's N THE SKITS ARE NOW PRERECORDED.' By SARA RUBIN Alligator Contributing Writer It may be hard to imagine Steve Spurrier having a direct effect on the production of theatrical skits, but like his playbook, the O' Ball Coach is full of surprises. Gator Growl skits changed from live performances to video recordings at Spurrier's behest. When Spurrier had natural grass laid on Florida Field in 1990 to replace the AstroTurf, performers were prohibited from running on the field, said Aron Weingard, producer of Gator Growl. As a result, performers began videotaping skits and have never turned back. "I'm maintaining a poker face, but it's going to be great," Weingard said of the skits. Weingard said even though the main theme of the skits is always based around campus jokes and athletic rivals, new technology has created opportunities for the highest quality of production. The staff is willing to do whatever it takes, no matter how much time is involved, to create the best possible skits, he said. "For every minute of footage, we probably spend over an hour of filming time," said Michael Jordan, creative co-director of Gator Growl. The process of creating a skit begins with the sevenmember creative team brainstorming ideas, writing and editing a script, casting actors, filming and editing, Jordan said. An element of surprise is important for the success of the skits. For that reason, the skits are only pre-screened by a select few directors on staff before the show. No more than 10 directors will have seen them before they are viewed by thousands of people. "The show as a whole is going to be one of the best Shows that students, alumni and the Gainesville community is ever going to see." Michael Jordan creative co-director of Gator Growl Jordan said different video elements, including songs, sound effects and footage, give pre-recorded skits an advantage over live ones. "When you see a musical, it's one-dimensional," Jordan said. "But on screen you can really accomplish a new look that isn't possible on stage." Video can be taken from five of 10 different views at once, which gives the staff flexibility to choose the funniest or most creative version for the audience. The screening process for actors was more intense this year, and the overall quality is the highest ever to be seen at Gator Growl, he said. No individual characteristics of the skits make them the best yet, he said, but rather a combination of factors. "Our video editor shoots so tight and makes it so crisp that each of our skits are like short films," Jordan said. Commercials will also be acted out, he said. Instead of showing cameos all at once, as the 2006 show did, they will be spread out during the entire Gator Growl show. "The show as a whole is going to be one of the best shows that students, alumni and the Gainesville community is ever going to see," Jordan said. at&t _W eaaed~ l Celebrate the Never Ending Spirit and Enthusiasm of Mr. 2-Bits with your sponsorship commitmentto4 help provide spiri team, scholarships for years to come.

6, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2,2007 Editorial Ah, Homecoming weekend. The grills are lit, the RVs are parked, the beer is on ice. We'd be lying if we said we don't enjoy it. Even though Archer Road is more packed than a tin of sardines and our favorite bars are at capacity, we wouldn't trade this three-day weekend for anything. But who are we kidding? The Department of Darts & Laurels knows this weekend is about one thing and one thing only: football. So enjoy the parade, laugh your butt off at Gator Growl and yell out "Free bird!" when that band comes on. But most of all, we're looking forward to the game. Until then, we present the touchdown edition of. arts-& Laurels First up, a Tebow-style-stiffarm-run-for-a-first-down LAUREL to the Panhellenic Council's Junior Panhellenic Division for its annual "Ghouls, Goblins, and Greeks" event. The Halloween extravaganza provided Gainesville residents a safe place to bring their costumed kids where they could play games, meet SpongeBob SquarePants and of course, collect tons of candy. Plus, what could be cuter than all those adorable kids in costume? Next we have to give a fake-punt-trick-play LAUREL to Graduate Assistants United and Students for a Democratic Society for staging a protest about giving teaching and research assistants more time to pay their fees. As much as it pains us to say that SDS actually protested something worthwhile, we'll give them credit for this one. As we said in Thursday's editorial, it's not fair for our TAs to have to shell out for all of their fees at a time when money is invariably at its tightest. It makes much more sense for them to be able to have their fees deducted from their paychecks throughout the semester. We go to a university, for crying out loud -someone should be able to figure out how to make this happen. Perhaps someone like a chief financial officer? We give a dem's-mad-recruiting-skillz LAUREL to UF administrators for hiring Matthew Fajack to be UF's new CFO. The title may sound like something more appropriate for Morgan Stanley, but it's time we realize UF is basically a corporation -and a multi-million-dollar one, at that. Fajack will have to analyze UF's finances and make recommendations pertaining to them. As much as it makes UF seem even more impersonal, in this time of budget cuts and financial woes, UF must have a CFO if it wants to stay on top of its game. We've got a the-play-clock-is-winding-down-andthank-God LAUREL to the end of the Andrew Meyer ordeal. Now that all the investigations are complete and the punishments meted out, hopefully we can all get back to normal. And who knows, maybe Meyer will be able to, as well. Then we can go back to thinking about the first Meyer: Urban. In case you're a little hungover after partying all night on Halloween or Thursday night or even Friday, have we got a cure for you. We have a better-than-spaghetti-andGatorade LAUREL for Starbucks, which is churning out mochas at its newest Gainesville location in the Reitz Union. While we hate that Starbucks is taking over UF -not to mention the world -we know it's a damn good way to make some much needed moolah. Finally, we close with a Tebow-throws-to-Harvin-whoruns-in-for-a-TD-to-beat-the-Commodores-by-about-00points LAUREL to the Gators football team. We're confident they'll win this one and make us bowl-eligible.

Opinions ALLIGATOR www.alligator.org/opinion rr -] Column Study abroad can come home to you don't know about you, but spending a semester abroad is something I've been thinking about doing since arriving at UP. It's such an appealing option for students because studying in a far-away country is like embarking on a really long vacation that just happens to get you college credit. Every time I strike up conversation about studyabroad opportunities with my family, I usually get the same response: My parents suggest places I should spend a semester so it will give them an excuse to visit, and my little brother recites the same joke -and I use the term joke in the loosest way possible. It goes something like this: "So, uh, I think I wanna study abroad when I get to college, too. I just don't know what her name is yet." Baa-dum-tchhh. I know, hilarious. But anyway, in preparation for my study-abroad excursion, I opted to live with an international student this year in order to form friendships with overseas students and become more culturally inclined. My roommate is from England, so I thought it wouldn't be too different from having an American roommate because of two very important factors: We both speak English, and we both love Harry Potter. It just so happens that our cultures aren't completely alike, but we enjoy spending time comparing and contrasting. Often, my English roommate, her English friends and I sit around for hours and play a heart-thumping, jaw-dropping, riveting game of. "What's It Called?" The premise is quite simple: Say a word, and then name all the possible cultural variations of that same word. This game can become quite lengthy, even rivaling epic Monopoly sessions. Some terms, though, like "creeping Jesus," have no cultural equivalent, while others could spark a lengthy list. For example, "fries" to us are those wonderfully golden strips of greasy potato that we technically shouldn't eat, because they are what doctors and fitness Colleen Shea gurus deem "unhealthful" and letters@alligator.org possibly deadly. To the English, "fries" are called "chips," and "chips" are called "crisps" except, under certain circumstances, "chips" are actually "chips" and not "crisps" -but we'll ignore that for now. It's too advanced. Speaking of chips, my new English friends are constantly shaking their heads in shame at America's unaddressed national crisis known as the Fish-and-Chips Situation. They do not believe in fish fingers or fast-food fish because "Fish does not belong in a drive-thru and should be served with real crisps, not soggy fries." I agree wholeheartedly, and we should really do something about this grave situation. Speaking of drive-thrus, my English friends have also pointed out just how many fast-food joints we have in America -one for nearly every letter of the alphabet. That struck me as kind of sick and twisted, until I remembered that the alternatives to fast food are either going to a sit-down restaurant, where you have to wait for food, or cooking. So the moral of this story is, if you want to study abroad, it would be a good idea to live with international students. And if you don't want to study abroad, that's OK, as long as you at least visit a country where they sell fish and chips that don't come from a drivethru.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2007 E ALLIGATOR, 7 Letters to the Editor Greek event great for Gainesville's children My husband and I wish to express our gratitude to all of the sororities that participated in the "Ghouls, Goblins, and Greeks" event on Halloween. All of the girls were so caring and wonderful with our kids, and the effort spent decorating the houses, making costumes and creating games for the kids' enjoyment was so appreciated by our family. Our children, who are ages 3 and 1, had a fantastic time, and we all hope to participate again next year. Thank you again for the wonderful Halloween experience. Kelly Kirkpatrick Gainesville resident SG deserves praise when merited The Alligator editorial board should give credit where credit is due. When our Student Government leaders got library hours extended for finals, the editorial board decried SG for not doing more. Apparently it's easy getting the administration to fork over $5,000 per semester, and apparently you're damned if you do and damned if you don't. Yesterday's editorial faulted the Student Senate for not working harder. The truth is, senators cannot pass a bill extending library hours. Their responsibilities lie almost exclusively in allocating the Activity & Service Fee to fund things such as the Reitz Union, the gyms and student organizations. While an individual senator can sponsor resolutions in.support of an idea, these are rarely effective. Passed Senate resolutions may theoretically carry power, but in practice they have proven to be almost worthless. Instead, the administration regularly seeks approval from the Student Body president, who holds the mandate of the greater student body I recognize SG's flaws should be elucidated by a vigilant press. However, when our leaders succeed, they deserve a mature press corps that doesn't criticize for the sake of criticism. Ryan Nelson former student senator Alligator unfairly criticizes groups' good works These past few weeks I have seen continuous negative coverage by the Alligator editorial board wantonly slamming whole groups of students, namely Greeks and SG, for mostly negligible offenses. Heck, even in SG's case they did something, yet the Alligator felt it necessary to continue its mudslinging campaign. In the case of the Greeks, the councils took steps to help safeguard Homecoming, and the Alligator responded by writing what seemed like a fair editorial but ended in a tongue-in-cheek jab. Yes, the Greeks and SG do fall short, but they fall short while aiming higher than all those around them. I applaud them for striving valiantly in the face of ridicule and criticism. However, I hope the Alligator editorial-board rises to new heights and leaves this deplorable, immature smear campaign to lesser individuals. Tommy Rodriguez secretary, Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity Free speech essential for democracy I don't understand some people's view of "freedom of speech." It is evident to me that people who publicly violate the law during peaceful, political discourse are met with praise rather than scorn. I'd like to live in a place where, if I'm disappointed with my government, I can freely question my leaders in a public forum without being silenced by other attendees. I want a place that can use legal precedent to remove those who violently infringe upon my freedom. Also, if a person violently resists, my law enforcement has an effective, non-lethal response. Luckily, I live in a place like that at UF. It's nice to know that if someone like Andrew Meyer keeps an entire room full of people from freely discussing their political views, he can be removed. Maybe now our community is free to ask "the hard questions" without such unlawful interruption.

8, ALLIGATOR E FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2007 HOMECOMING Performers look forward to large crowds at Growl By DEVIN CULCLASURE Alligator Writer dculclasure@alligator.org UF students can expect a mix of up-and-coming talent as well as tried-and-true success at tonight's Gator Growl. The 84th annual Gator Growl, billed as the world's largest student-run pep rally, will kick off at 7 p.m. at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. Comedian Frank Caliendo is the headlining act at Gator Growl, and Southern-rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd will also perform. Caliendo is an impressionist known for his imitation of political figures and celebrities such as John Madden, George W. Bush and Robert De Niro. He will receive $50,000 for his performance. Caliendo's credits include a role on "MADtv" as well as frequent appearances on "Fox NFL Sunday" and "Late Night with David Letterman." On his Web site, Caliendo describes his show, "Frank TV," as a mix of "The Muppets," "The Simpsons," "Saturday Night. Live" and "Second City Television," a Canadian comedy show from the late '70s and early '80s. Aron Weingard, Gator Growl producer, said Caliendo's comedy appeals to a wide variety of people. "His brand of humor relates to a broad audience," he said. "Frank can reach into the audience's world and use voices Find someone special. Advertise in The Alligator classifieds. 373-FIND and facial expressions to make common stuff funnier." Caliendo wrote in an e-mail that he couldn't wait to perform. "It's going to be a crazy experience," he wrote. "I've never performed in front of so many people before." Caliendo said he practiced impressions his entire life before he seriously pursued his hobby during his sophomore year of college. "It's going to be a crazy experience. I've never performed in front of so many people before." Frank Caliendo comedian He said students can expect some of his older impressions, such as Madden, as well as some new ones that could include Charles Barkley and Jeff Goldblum. Dancing would be another prominent feature of his performance, he added. Caliendo also compared the perks of performing in different mediums and venues. While his role on "Fox NFL Sunday" allowed him to make fun of Terry Bradshaw, and his own TV show lets him dance to his heart's desire, Caliendo said live stand-up is "fun because you get to have that immediate reaction." While Caliendo might be a relative newcomer, Gator Growl's second main act, Lynyrd Skynyrd, has been playing Southern-rock hits for nearly 40 years. Lynyrd Skynyrd, which will receive $150,000 for the performance, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in March 2006. Though a 1977 plane crash in Mississippi killed three members of the original band, which is based in Jacksonville, four original Lynyrd Skynyrd members still play today. Johnny Van Zant, brother of original lead singer Ronnie Van Zant, took over as lead singer in the late '80s. In an October e-mail, Van Zant said the band is excited to play in Gainesville. "We are looking forward to playing Gator Growl!" he wrote. "We've always been big Gator fans." Van Zant said Gainesville is one of the first areas the band played outside of Jacksonville. A favorite venue was the Great Southern Music Hall, he said. "My favorite memory of Gainesville would be as kids," Van Zant wrote. "We went there a lot and had friends that lived there." Van Zant said UF students could expect to hear hits such as "Free Bird," "Sweet Home Alabama" and "What's Your Name." When asked why he thinks Lynyrd Skynyrd's music has held appeal for nearly 40 years, Van Zant wrote he thinks it's because the group's music "is real songs about real life."

10, ALLIGATOR E FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2,2007 Unlike FSU, UFs pep rally caters mostly to families FSU'S HOMECOMING SHOW, CALLED POWWOW, FEATURED SARAH SILVERMAN THIS YEAR. By NINA MAHMOUDI Alligator Contributing Writer It's that time of year again. It's the time of year when University Avenue shuts down for the colorful floats parading around town. It's the time when alumni flood city streets and parking lots for the big game. And, of course, the time for guests to pile into Ben Hill Griffin Stadium for Gator Growl. Growl staff members say they are trying to get back to the Growl traditional image -a family-oriented pep rally -for all of The Gator Nation by featuring comedian Frank Caliendo, a star of the TV show "Madtv," and Southrn-rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd. While some students are excited for the acts, others are disappointed. Kayla Kurtz, a UF animal science junior, said she will bypass the show this year and go home for the weekend instead. "Lynyrd Skynyrd, I know them," she said. "But they aren't actually the original Lynyrd Skynyrd." Anna Murphy, Growl spokeswoman, said Caliendo has a "broad" appeal for audiences. Lynyrd Skynyrd was also invited to create a traditional pep rally while honoring the recent success of Gators sports, she said. Murphy said organizers tried to keep the diversity of attendees in mind when deciding who is going to perform at Growl. "The Gator Nation is not just students," she said. "We are trying to register to an audience that incorporates younger siblings to grandparents." In contrast to Gator Growl, Florida State University's Homecoming rally, called PowWow, is organized exclusively to the desires of students. Comedian and actress Sarah Silverman was featured this year, and Stephen Colbert appeared last year. Adam Sterritt, associate director of student activities at FSU, said the university normally tries to get a big name or the hottest comedian at that time. He said students are polled months before the show to see which comedians students want to see. "We have a really student-heavy show," he said. Murphy, the Gator Growl spokeswoman, said having Dane Cook as a performer in 2004 was a turning point for the "largest student-run pep rally." State Cook used vulgar lanNews guage and seemed to entertain only students, said Murphy. His performance was not received well by some members of the audience. Randy Talbot, executive director of the UF Alumni Association and a member of the Class of 1975, said shows like that one "run the risk of offending the very people that are supporting the show in the first place." Murphy said that alumni are not the only demographic considered when discussing what act to feature. Murphy explained that when a performer who is popular at a particular time is brought in for a show, organizers can run the risk of that person no longer being in fashion by the time the show comes around. She also said performers these days seem to be genre-specific. Somebody like Justin Timberlake would only appeal to some audience members of Gator Growl, Murphy said. She said Lynyrd Skynyrd was a great choice because the band's music is timeless and not pigeon-holed to one type of person. "When I told my little brother that Lynyrd Skynyrd was coming to perform, he was so excited," Murphy said. Other students are also excited about the event. Nika Merta, a mechanical and aerospace engineering graduate student, said she plans to attend. She said she will also include her family in the festivities. "I got tickets for everyone before I even knew who was going to perform," she said. "I've gone every year, and it's fun."

12, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2,2007 Parade brings road closures By KATIE GALLAGHER Alligator Writer Large portions of University Avenue will be closed today for Gator Gallop and the Homecoming parade. University Avenue will be shut down from East Third Street to West 22nd Street, according to the Gainesville Police Department. In addition, Main Street will be blocked off between North Second Avenue and South Fourth Avenue. Thirteenth Street will also be closed between Northwest Third Avenue and Southwest Fourth Avenue. The roads will close around 11 a.m., but the time will vary for each one, wrote Sarah Wilson, a GPD special events coordinator, in an e-mail. Gallop is scheduled to start at 11:30 a.m., and the parade is set to start at noon. The closures are the same ones typically used for the Homecoming parade but are still subject to minor changes, Wilson said. Road closures for Gator Growl have yet to be determined, but Northwest 16th Avenue will be closed near University Avenue afterward for Later Growl at Baptist College Ministries, according to Wilson's e-mail.

The 84th annual Gator Growl, billed as the world's largest student-run pep rally, will kick off at 7 p.m. at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. Shelley Meyer, wife of UF football coach Urban Meyer, will host the event. Comedian Frank Caliendo, who is known for impressions of a wide variety of political figures and celebrities, will receive $50,000 to be Gator Growl's headlining act. Caliendo has appeared on "MADtv" and "Fox NFL Sunday." His own weekly variety show, "Frank TV," will premiere Nov. 20. Also performing is Southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd. The Jacksonville natives, famous for hits such as "Free Bird" and "Sweet Home Alabama," will receive $150,000 for their performance. Verizon Wireless, Gator Growl's primary corporate sponsor, is giving $50,000 to the production this year to help cover costs. Aron Weingard, Gator Growl producer, said students could also expect plenty of jokes at the expense of .Florida State Homecoming University 2007 and Ohio S t a t e University during the pep rally's usual student-produced skits.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, 13 New fireworks mean Growl will go out with a bang By STEVEN WEINER Alligator Writer In addition to the traditional overhead fireworks display in tonight's Gator Growl, this year's show will be brought to a new and more personal level by using indoor fireworks. Although he said he didn't want to give away any of the show's details, John Feigert, who works for the company taking care of Gator Growl's fireworks show, dropped a few clues about some new effects in tonight's show. Feigert said this year, audience members should keep their eyes not only on the stage but in the stands as well. To ensure the safety of the audience and to bring the fireworks closer to the spectators, Arthur Portnoy, associate. director of operations for Gator Growl, said some of the technology being used is fundamentally different than what's been used in the past. Portnoy said the show will cost between $15,000 to $20,000. Because of the new indoor technology, the cost has not been determined. "We're not necessarily spending more money than last year," Portnoy added. "We're trying something different, and investing our dollars in this new technology." Feigert works for Pyrotecnico, one of the oldest and most established fireworks companies in the United States. "We're not necessarily spending more money than last year. We're trying something different, and investing our dollars in this new technology." Arthur Portnoy Gator Growl associate director of operations Pyrotecnico has done shows for the Superbowl and Monday Night Football, as well as the 2004 Democratic National Convention. Feigert said Pyrotecnico designs dozens of kinds of fireworks, all made to achieve different effects. "We have custom effects for fast music or slow music, utilizing shells, roman candles, comets, crossheads -the list goes on and on," he said. Two computers coordinate to ignite the fireworks in time with a musical soundtrack to present a synchronized display of light and sound. "Our computers know exactly how long it takes for a specific firework to reach its target height," Feigert said. "If it takes three seconds to get up in the air, the computer will know to launch it at the right time so it will explode on cue." The timing and sequences of the display are all programmed into the computer, so the show begins with the touch of a button. Responding to spectator concerns, Feigert said the Gator Growl show has been designed with audience safety in mind. Audience members are at least 140 feet away from the launch site, Feigert said. "You might think so, but you don't ever have fireworks exploding over your head," he added. The addition of the indoor fireworks will supplement the technology of the traditional outdoor show. Although computer technology and new pyrotechnic chemistry will dictate the indoor show, the basic science behind the outdoor fireworks has not changed for more than 800 years. Generally, a cardboard shell called a mortar holds chemicals in powder form, some of which How fireworks qet their color Molly welter / Alligator Stan act as explosive fuels.

14, ALLIGATOR M FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2007 OFF THE AVENUE Local celebs star in parade By KIM WILMATH Alligator Staff Writer kwilmath@alligator.org Several UF notables will join sports teams and Florida politicians in today's Homecoming parade that starts at noon. The honored guests include U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, state Sen. Steve Oelrich, several state representatives and two Alachua County commissioners, wrote Max Weiss, UF Homecoming parade director, in an e-mail. UF President Bernie Machen, all of UF's trustees, Gainesville Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan and Student Body President Ryan Moseley are also among the university's VIPs. Other UF groups, such as sororities and fraternities, will participate as well, said Elizabeth Davlantes, UF Homecoming chairwoman. Any group that creates a float for the parade must stick to the Homecoming theme of "Nation of Champions," Davlantes said. "It's a great way to unite the whole city in Gator spirit," she said. The parade starts at University Avenue and Gale Lemerand Drive and ends at Main Street. "I've been told I'm not a good waver," Moseley said. "I've got to start practicing.,, This is his second tune participating in the parade. This year, he said, he's excited to meet Lynyrd Skynyrd. "Free Bird," he said, summing up why he's Hanrahan a big fan. Moseley said he's got a lot to do before the big event, including picking out an outfit. "It'll probably be something orange and blue," he said. Davlantes said parade participants would not be allowed to throw beads or any other objects to the crowd because of Gainesville rules. Donations may get boost By KIM WILMATH Alligator Staff Writer kwilmath@alligator.org UF alumni are coming home, and university fundraisers are ready with open arms -and pockets. While it's unlikely UF will receive an influx of cash and checks over Homecoming weekend, it gives the UF Foundation, UF's fundraising organization, the opportunity to mingle with potential donors. "A single event like a football game or Homecoming doesn't necessarily bring in a huge amount of money," said Chris Brazda, a spokesman for the foundation. "The donations we get come in over time." However, Brazda said any event that brings UF alumni back to campus allows UF fundraisers to show them places where the university could use monetary help. Each of UF's colleges usually hosts some kind of Homecoming event, such as tailgate parties or special lectures. The events raise awareness about UF's accomplishments and goals, which usually encourages future donations, he said. In addition, the Florida Blue Key banquet, Homecoming parade and football game always attract a large alumni crowd, he-said. Brazda said he Homecoming couldn't estimate 2007 how many donors the foundation expects to rub elbows with during Homecoming festivities, and he didn't know how much extra money might come in. The foundation collects a range of gifts from $50 to more than $100,000, he said. He added that the foundation does not have a list of VIPs for donors to charm this weekend.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2007 N ALLIGATOR, 15 Royalty Among Us For the first time, there will be both a Homecoming queen and king illian Yoerges spent most of her days during spring break on her hands and knees working on a farm in Costa Rica. In the afternoons, she taught children English. With her work during her Florida Alternative Break and a glut of other activities, her sorority, Pi Beta Phi, nominated her for Homecoming queen. Yoerges, a UF anthropology senior, was excited for a pageant that focused on leadership and involvement. A few friends she admires had been in the pageant in previous years. Jillian' "I'm definitely not a pageant girl whatsoever, but I think these role models drove me to do it," she said. Her list of at least 12 activities includes working as a Florida Opportunity Scholar mentor last year, a morale captain for Dance Marathon and assistant director of Gatorship. "What a lot of students don't realize is when you move to a new university, you are moving to a new community," she said. "It involves really diving in and not just taking these opportunities for granted." Yoerges hopes to work in urban elementary education for Teach For America once she graduates. After working at a summer camp for terminally ill erges children, she said she questioned whether she had the energy to handle being a teacher every day.'

But he said he's still nervous for the moment when UF's Homecoming king and queen will be announced. "If I trip or something, all my friends are going to see it," said Merkel, a UF marketing senior and one of three finalists for Homecoming king. Merkel devoted 15 to 20 hours a week to the UF marching band during his freshman and sophomore years. "I had a great experience, but I kind of wanted to move Ry into other areas," he said. "I'm all about trying new things." Merkel is a Florida Cicerone and member of Kappa Sigma Fraternity and Florida Blue Key. S ara Hartmann has a passion for education that started when she was young. At the time, she was as young as the middle-school student she now tutors and mentors each week. "I think just having someone she can talk to who is older and kind of a role model has helped," said Hartmann, a UF history senior. By influencing young students, she hopes to inspire them to make significant differences in other people's lives, too. Now, with a one-inthree chance of being UF's Homecoming queen, she hopes to expand this opportunity to be a role model. "I think all the girls are already role models," Hartmann Sara said of her opponents. "They've contributed and given a lot of themselves. I think it's just a matter of taking that title to take opportunities further." icholas Baragona visits his favorite place in the world at least three times a week. The UF Homecoming king finalist takes his breaks at The Swamp Restaurant with friends and some bourbon and Coke. But for Baragona, it's all about time management and waking up early. "School comes first, next involvement," said Baragona, a marketing senior. "Social life comes last," he said. Baragona is the assistant director of special events for Florida Blue Key, the presiNichol2 dent of Sigma Chi Fraternity and a member of Florida Cicerones. He said the application for Homecoming king was no trouble for He said he's been involved in so many activities at UF that he can't remember them all. If he wins king, he said, he wants to convince students to be more active in the community. "I'll maybe use that title to promote student involvement and student leadership to other people," Merkel said. "Especially younger people. It makes the college experience a lot more fulfilling." Merkel is proud of his latest project: rebuilding the Kappa Sigma Fraternity house. "This will be enjoyed by hundreds of students after," said Merkel, who helped design the house. "This is a project for the future." Running for Homecoming queen is something Hartmann said she had always considered. "I thought the women were amazing who were crowned every year," she Before she applied, she wanted to "refine her involvement," she said. Hartmann is a member of Alpha Delta Pi Sorority and Florida Blue Key and is part of the Emerging Leaders Conference. She is now in the application process for Teach For America. She hopes to teach at an inner-city school to "help with the education lartmann gap." "I'll try to instill in (students) the personal belief that you can do anything you put your mind and heart to," Hartmann said. him. "I'm so involved with the university and know so much about it that I was able to talk about it," Baragona said. He added that he's enthusiastic about the possibility of being the first Homecoming king in UF history. "It's an opportunity for gentlemen involved at this university to represent the university well," Baragona said. Meanwhile, he said, he is enjoying his time representing UF as a finalist for Baragona the title. "I have to uphold those high standards the university has set before me," he said.

16, ALLIGATOR N FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2007 PUBLIC SAFETY Police officers expect few problems over weekend By KATIE GALLAGHER Alligator Writer For people who don't want to get arrested during Homecoming, University Police Department Lt. Robert Wagner said to remember three things: Don't have an open container in public. Don't drink if you're under 21. Don't urinate in a public place. "Those are the three things I'm sure we'll end up dealing with the most," he said. Otherwise, he expects Homecoming weekend to be "relatively easy." UPD does not allow vacation time during football weekends, he said, so there will be a full staff of 13 officers at all times. Extra officers will work the parade and Gator Growl and watch over the TV trucks. Gator Growl is "a breeze" to work, he said, because crowds are lighter than at games. Wagner said he expects cooler weather and fewer dehydration issues for the game. Lt. Keith Kameg, Gainesville Police Department spokesman, said he also expects little trouble. "It's nothing compared to a Tennessee weekend or a Florida State weekend," he said. He doesn't expect any fights to break out. "Homecoming, other than being busy, is an easy event for us," he said. "People come back, and they don't really come back to be mad at the opponent. They come back to see their friends." This means GPD expects more small house parties than big blowouts, Kameg said. Still, he said, GPD will have larger party patrols out and be on the lookout for drunken drivers the day of and night before the game. UPD does not have party patrols on campus, Wagner said, but will help GPD with drunk driving checkpoints as needed. UPD will also be on the lookout for drunken drivers at a Driving Under the Influence/Traffic Safety Checkpoint, a UPD press release stated. The checkpoint, which is just east of the intersection of Museum Road and Radio Road, started Thursday at 10:30 p.m. Police will be checking for driver's license, registration, seatbelts and alcohol and drug use. The checkpoint will be conducted by UPD with the help of GPD, the Alachua Police Department, the Florida Highway Patrol and the city's Public Works Department. Despite his good outlook, Kameg said Homecoming is busy because it is the only football game that involves a pep-rally and a parade. Traffic is always an issue during the event. GPD will be readily available just as during any football weekend, he said. Wagner agreed, saying, "There's nothing specific we do that's different." Some UF employees must work during Homecoming 0 THE PHYSICAL PLANT DIVISION WILL HELP SET UP FOR THE PARADE. By ILEANA MORALES Alligator Writer imorales@alligator.org Not everyone at UF will have the day off to watch the Homecoming parade today. Steve Orlando, UF spokesman, said some Physical Plant Division employees would be working to set up for the parade and Gator Growl. The University Police Department will also have its officers on duty, he added. Jeff Chorlog, an associate director of the Physical Plant Division, said employees working today would receive eight hours of holiday pay. Hours worked can also be credited for vacation time later in the year. Three employees will function as a highreach support group for the Homecoming parade. This crew will be in charge of a 120-foot-high lift for cameras to film the parade on University Avenue between Gale Lemerand Drive and Main Street. Paul Vlahos, mainteHomecoming n ince specialist for the 2007 F ,tysical Plant Division, said he expects a busy day, particularly during the setup and dismantling of the high lift. "I imagine it's going to be hectic," said Vlahos, who will be on the ground supervising the operation of the high lift. "I've heard the stories. from the other people here. This is my first time doing this parade." Some Physical Plant Division'employees will also work during Gator Growl and the Homecoming football game. Crews are assigned to tasks including setting up trash cans, bleachers and barricades for the events. "We gear for this parade all week long," Vlahos said.

18, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2007 After graduation, alumni return to changes at UF Jeremiah Stanley/ Alligator The University Corners project, which is in the works, is an example of changes in Gainesville in recent years. By KORI FREDERICK Alligator Writer With a student population of 30,000 and a football team that once went 0-10-1 during her enrollment, UF alumna Sharon Taylor never thought her alma mater would come this far. Now, with the student body swollen to 50,000, the football team is the defending national champion, and the town bleeds orange and blue seven days a week. "Football was nothing like it is now," said Taylor, who completed her undergraduate degree in 1979. "We never wore orange and blue to the games." With the kickoff of Gator Growl 2007, Taylor reminisced about how the city and university have changed since she attended UF "It was a lot of fun," said Taylor, who completed her law degree at UF in 1982. "There was usually a big-name comedian, lots of skits, we'd cheer on the football team. and there were fireworks at the end." Taylor said she got to see headliners like Bill Cosby, Bob Hope and Robin Williams at Gator Growl. Gator Growl has remained mostly unchanged over the years, Taylor said. It still features up-and-coming 'comedians, spotlights the football team and ends with fireworks, but the live skits have been replaced by videos. After Growl ended, Taylor said she would usually attend a fraternity party with her now-husband Mark Taylor, also a UF alumnus. When she was in college, the legal drinking age was only 18, she said. "So you can imagine what that was like," she laughed. There were often dances after Growl, which she said she loved to attend. Her favorite bar was a disco place downtown called Nichol's Alley, which had a lighted dance floor. After she and her husband graduated -they married in 1981 -they continued to come back to Gainesville for Homecoming. "We came up a few Ar nd times after we graduated, Ga e'sVille but after we had kids, we stopped coming up," she said. "But we've always been season football and basketball ticket holders." Over the years, she's watched the city grow. She said the traffic congestion is much worse, and there are a lot more apartment complexes and restaurants, especially on Archer Road. She's also watched the campus grow. While only a few new buildings have been added to the main campus, she said the entire southwest area of the campus is new. "I used to live in married housing down there," she said. "The gym did not exist." But she's especially watched the pride in the university grow. "It's been so much fun to watch these teams do so well," she said. "We've loved it." Homecoming can mean big business for local retailers 0 GATORS GAMES BRING MORE PEOPLE TO GAINESVILLE. By APRIL DUDASH Alligator Writer As Gainesville prepares for an influx of visitors on Homecoming weekend, so do local businesses. Brent Christensen, Gainesville Area Chamber of Commerce president, said the increase of people in the area causes a ripple effect in the local economy. Gators home football games have a large impact on the community, Christensen said. Home games affect a variety of businesses, including hotels, restaurants and retail outlets, he said. Lynne Vaughan, director of the UF Bookstore, said Homecoming is a great time to draw in traffic to the bookstore. It took less than two weeks for the store to sell out of Homecoming T-shirts, and it is ordering more, Vaughan said. The store may also do pre-sales for a new book called "University of Florida Football Vault," a scrapbook of Florida football over the years. The bookstore should have a strong business weekend thanks to the parade and football game, she said. "I think it's going to be a very fun November," Vaughan said. Sam Rappa, manager for Larry's Giant Subs on West University Avenue, said extra people work during Homecoming in order for the store to be ready. "We sell out a year in adv Karl K Holiday Inn University Cent However, not everyone sees a change during the Homecoming we Karl Kaufmann, general ma the Holiday Inn University Cente University Avenue, said Homec not very different from other hom ance." weekends.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2,20075 ALLIGATOR, 19 PHILANTHROPY Donovan set to help raise money during GatorWalk By NICOLE FINEO Alligator Contributing Writer After winning two national titles, UF men's basketball coach Billy Donovan is working for another repeat triumph -this time for premature babies. Donovan and his wife, Christine, are working with GatorWalk to double the money raised to benefit the March of Dimes. More than 1,000 people walked in the 2006 GatorWalk, which contributed around $50,000 in donations, said Amanda Casciotti, the GatorWalk director. This year, the fourth annual five-mile walk hopes to raise $100,000 and increase involvement to more than 2,000 participants, she said. Casciotti, a UF industrial and systems engineering senior, said this year is going to be bigger and better with many changes from previous years. A live performance by The Pearly Whites, an Orlando hip-hop group, will provide musical entertainment this year, she said. Local radio stations have provided the music in previous years, she added. The event will also focus on Ambassadors, which are families that have been affected by the premature birth of a child or are strong supporters of the Molly letter / Alligator Start Molly refer / Alligator Staff March of Dimes.

20, ALLIGATOR 0 FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2,2007 HOMECOMING Gator Growl continues evolving E THE PEP RALLY STARTED IN 1916, AND IN 1932 IT BECAME GATOR GROWL. By NINA MAHMOUDI Alligator Contributing Writer What started out as a simple Homecoming tradition at an allmale school has now blown up what is billed as the largest student-run pep rally in the nation. Today, UP students can celebrate 84 years of the UP Homecoming tradition Gator Growl. The pep rally was started in 1916, wrote Anna Murphy, spokeswoman for Gator Growl, in an e-mail. As a tradition for the original pep rally, freshmen contributed the equivalent of their weight in firewood for a giant bonfire,, she wrote. This tradition was known as "firing up" for the football game, she wrote. In 1925, the pep rally expanded to include skits and performers, Murphy wrote. It was known then as a variety show. The show evolved into Gator Growl in 1932. That was also the first year the pep rally was put on in the stadium.

Now, with more technology available to produce digital skits, along with live performances by bands and dancers, more than 500 students work to put the show together. "It has now escalated to a professional level, but still maintains the spirit of what a traditional pep rally is," Murphy said in an interview. "(Gator Growl) has now escalated to a professional level, but still maintains the spirit of what a traditional pep rally is." Anna Murphy Gator Growl spokeswoman Unlike shows decades ago, this year's show will feature "elaborate pyrotechnics," light shows and a celebration of many recent national titles for UF's sports teams. The show has gained prestige because of the reputation of past Growl successes. Past performers, including Bill Cosby, Robin Williams, Jerry Seinfeld and Billy Crystal, have helped escalate the show's reputation of being more than just a regular university pep rally, Murphy said. Randy Talbot, executive director of the UF Alumni Association and member of the class of 1975, was at Growl when Robin Williams headlined. "When he came, I laughed so hard I sweated," he said. "He was 'raunchy,' or at least what was considered to be the definition during that time frame." The show traditionally had two comedians, but this year the staff of Florida Blue Key, which puts on Growl, has decided to change the format. This year, comedian Frank Caliendo, who was a cast member on the TV show "MADtv," and band Lynyrd Skynyrd will headline the show. The stage will also be set on a different side of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium this year. It will now be in the stadium's north endzone. Talbot said the purpose of Gator Growl is not outdoing what was done before but just producing a good show. This year, ticket sales are not the only thing funding the production. Verizon Wireless is sponsoring the event, bringing even more attention to an already hyped show. This is the first year Gator Growl has boasted a corporate sponsorship.

City cleanup crew will follow parade floats By KATIE GALLAGHER Alligator Writer The last trucks to go by in the Homecoming parade Nov. 2 won't be part of the entertainment. They'll be filled with city employees to clean up the mess. "The parade's not over until our trucks go by," said Gina Hawkins, a public education specialist with Gainesville's Public Works Department. The trucks usually consist of two street sweepers and a large vacuum, said Steve Joplin, interim director of the solid waste division. Local Twenty to 30 people usually particiNews pate, he said. The cleanup crew comes mostly from Public Works and the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs departments. Hawkins said it takes them about three hours to get all the way down University Avenue. They pick up litter and empty trash containers on both sides of the street, but they don't cross far into UF territory. The same employees also clean up before and after football games and other major events in Gainesville. "They've gotten plenty of practice with these championship wins," Hawkins said. The crew usually cleans up bottles and householdtype trash. The arrangement is part of a deal with UF, which in turn contributes monetarily to the city, Hawkins said.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2007 N ALLIGATOR, 29 UF women dominate 106-23 0 ANElKA H ENRY LED THE GATORS WITH 19 POINTS. By PHIL KEGLER Alligator Staff Writer pkegler@alligator.org It may not have counted in the record books, but the UF women's basketball team did everything it could to erase the memories of last season. The Gators wiped out NAIA Division-Il Warner Southern 10628 Thursday night. "Obviously we're very pleased with the outcome," an understated UF coach Amanda Butler said. "I thought we played really hard and whenever you can spread the ball around and get everybody an opportunity to play and .you feel like you get better by the end of the game, it's a great opportunity." Junior transfer Aneika Henry led the way for the Gators with 19 points and 10 rebounds. "I think you got a glimpse of what Aneika's impact is going to be," Butler said. "Obviously with that size, the catches she makes, and the plays that she finishes, and the rebounds she grabs, a lot of other people just can't do those things." Junior guard Sha Brooks, who contributed 14 points, loves the post presence the 6-foot-3 center PICKS, from page 39_ brings. "We've got someone who's almost 7 feet tall, so you can just lob it up there and she'll catch it," Brooks said. Henry started in place of sophomore forward Sharielle Smith, who is out four to six weeks after suffering a stress fracture in her right foot. An injury bug that's already knocked out two Gators almost got worse when Brooks dived for a loose ball and got up slowly, limping to the Bench. Women's The junior did Basketball not return during the final 7:48 of the first half, but she started the second half and didn't seem to favor the leg. "I'm good, I'm good," she said. "I'm a soldier." Butler didn't worry too much when she saw Brooks on the ground. "You hold your breath a little bit because we're a little thinner than we would like to be," Butler said. "But we're not going to compromise how hard we play because we're scared we're going to get injured." It seemed only appropriate that this game would start with the Gators scoring before any time ran off the clock. Warner Southern was charged So far, the connotation doesn't seem to be rubbing off. In its 118 years of existence, the robber baron's football team holds a dismal record of 546-538-50. With a record like that, is it really possible for the Rowdies to get rowdy? "Absolutely, and especially we'll be rowdy for Florida because we felt we got robbed two years ago," Davis said. "We're a small school, so there aren't as many of us, but we can pack a mighty punch when we need to." That's a pretty bold statement, and Davis has the proof to back it up. We asked Davis, if a robber baron squared off with Tim Tebow, who would win the fight? "A robber baron, hands down, because he could outsmart him," Lucas said. But even that kind of trash talking seemed to be a little too much for a Commodores fan, who pointed out that Vanderbilt is all about the love. "We don't necessarily have massive rivalries, and nobody really hates us, and we don't really hate anyone besides Tennessee," Lucas said. "So we look forward to beating Florida on Saturday, but we're also happy about the success they've brought to the SEC." What great sportsmanship. No wonder Vanderbilt is horrible at football. With that, on to the picks! Tied for first with the guest pickers with a with a technical foul for not turning in its lineup on time. Brooks stepped to the free-throw line and made both shots to give the Gators a 2-0 lead. UF scored the first 12 points before Warner Southern guard Ivana Soberal finally scored with 16:55 left in the first half. UF ran up a 57-16 lead by halftime on 64.7 percent shooting from the floor. f The Gators totaled 57 points or fewer in five regular season games last season. One thing Butler did stress at halftime was rebounding, as they led Warner Southern only 21-19 at the break. The team responded, outrebounding the Royals 39-15 in the second half for a 60-34 final margin. "When you go in the locker room and issue a challenge and your team responds like that, then you certainly have to be pleased,". Butler said. She slowed down the pace in the second half, dropping the team back into a two-three zone. "We could've continued to run, but we didn't feel that was the classy thing to do," Butler said. "For us, we weren't getting better shooting layups. So we felt it was an opportunity to work on our half-court execution and even specific options out of our half-court execution." 46-34 record is Brian "I tried to pick up Georgia chicks last weekend but scared them off with my macramed pair of jean shorts" Steele, who likes to belt out the lyrics to the Spice Girls' "Wannabe" while in the shower. We just hope he's not fantasizing about Baby Spice. Batting second with a 43-37 record is Bryan "My nickname in high school was big, fat goalie" Jones, who likes to eat sandwiches with his only friend, an imaginary space cowboy named Maurice. In third at 42-38 is Jenna "Dan Werner is the next Larry Bird" Marina, who would rather watch a Lifetime original movie instead of the Patriots-Colts game Sunday. Batting cleanup, with a record of 41-39, is Nick "I wish I were sponge-worthy" Zaccardi, who plans on spending his "Summer of Nick" by watching Seinfeld re-runs while eating a block of cheese. In dead-ass last with a piss-poor record of 40-40 is Mike "I tried to dress up as Timon for Halloween," McCall, who ended up settling for a Rafiki costume when he couldn't convince anyone to be his Pumbaa.

30, ALLIGATOR N FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2,2007 Wise persuaded hesitant McCray to follow sister to Gainesville MCCRAY, from page 32 blocker, played a different position at UF than Amber would. Wise also played up the fact that Amber knew a lot about how the program worked, considering she had been around it for the last five years. Amber began to think it over, and as time went on she realized UF had many of the qualities she desired. Asew weeks later, while playing out of the country with the US Junior National Team, she made her decision. "She called me and said, 'Mom, I want to go to Florida,"' Darlene said. The outcome was unexpected, even to her sister. "Until the day she committed, I thought she was going to Texas," Nicole said. "So when she told me she was going to Florida, I was ecstatic." Torn from the Game If Amber thought the recruiting process was hard, she had no idea what was to follow. During the spring of her freshman year, she tore her anterior cruciate ligament and her medial collateral ligament in her right knee. She said practice started out just like normal. "I just jumped to hit a ball and landed off-balance on one leg, and it just buckled," Amber said. The injury posed her greatest challenge yet. "That was most definitely the hardest thing I've ever had to do," Amber said. "Because I've always been playing, whether it was high school, club, summer league with USA -I've always been playing volleyball." Nicole knew just what her younger sister was going through, having been.forced to redshirt her freshman year after a rotator cuff injury. The toughest part might have been the fact that Amber had seen action in 25 of 38 matches her freshman year, playing a key role on a team that went all the way to the national final before losing to Southern Cal. The injury forced her to spend her second year watching from the sidelines. "I just told her to stay positive," Nicole said. "I told her that (the) year was going to go by fast." Darlene also had an idea of what her daughter was going through, having had a similar but less-serious injury during her basketball playing days. Despite hearing that it was an injury that might force Amber to quit playing volleyball, she stayed positive. "I still wouldn't say 100 percent, but I'm really working on getting better every week." Amber McCray UF opposite hitter "I always felt she was going to come back," Darlene said. "I never felt any negatives or spoke any negative statements to her about her possibly not playing volleyball anymore. It was just a known to me that she was coming back. I felt like God would bless her to continue her volleyball career, and He did." Leaving her Legacy Amber returned to the floor in spring 2005 in a scrimmage at Louisville. She remembers trying to make up for it all in one play. "I was over-running every ball," she said. "Mary could tell me, 'Amber you're really, really anxious because you're so anxious to be back."' It hasn't exactly been smooth sailing from there, however. All those volleyball swings over the years took their toll on Amber's rotator cuff, and she developed a tear last season. She sat out some games, and Wise makes sure not to overwork her these days. "There's good days and bad days," Amber said. "I still wouldn't say 100 percent, but I'm really working on getting better every week, so that by the end of the season and the postseason when it's really counted, I'll be ready." Still, she played well enough last season to be named a second-team All-America by both the American Volleyball Coaches Association and Volleyball Magazine. With her final season winding down Amber will look to lead UF back to national prominence. The Gators have not returned to the Final Four since her freshman season. However it ends, Wise knows Amber has made her mark at UF. "Amber McCray's injuries -she's had the short end of the stick there," Wise said. "But the legacy she'll leave is the perseverance. I've never seen anything like it." Bring a friend to lunch Satnple 3Wines On ihe "hoe, tl-2:l5 pm. Help provide local students in need with free educational materials and supplies!

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2,2007 N ALLIGATOR, 31 UF BASKETBALL Gators test lineups By DANNY KLEIN Alligator Staff Writer dklein@alligator.org When UF coach Billy Donovan said the Gators starting lineup was due to change, he wasn't kidding. After beginning the game with the expected setup of Marreese Speights, Dan Werner and the three-guard combination of Walter Hodge, Nick Calathes and Jai Lucas, Donovan began an early-season experiment in UF's 97-51 victory over Flagler College on Thursday night. Donovan used 13 different lineups in the first half alone. He used the same five on the court only twice. Donovan said the changes were more a result of fatigue than anything else. "We don't have quite an understanding of how hard we have to play at this level to have a chance to win," Donovan said. "I didn't want guys to be playing to keep themselves fresh. I want them to play to exhaust themselves. "I think guys were giving everything they had out there. So the lineups tonight were more predicated on fatigue than anything else." Where Donovan will head from here is hard to determine, as the game against Flagler may have left more questions than answers. The Gators got off to a slow start in their exhibition opener. At th' 12-minute mark in the first haii. the lead was a mere five points. "I think guys were giving everything they had out there. So the lineups tonight were more predicated on fatigue than anything else." Billy Donovan UF men's basketball coach The Gators began to pull away afterward, hitting a few outside shots before forcing Flagler to take a timeout trailing the Gators 34-17. Sophomores Jonathan Mitchell and Dan Werner both failed to score. Donovan did note after the game that he thought Werner played well without scoring, which was evident by his seven assists. Mitchell was a different story. He seemed shaky at times and in victory elected to pass rather than look for his own shots. Freshman Nick Calathes proved he can compete at the college level in his first outing. Donovan downplayed the guard throughout the preseason, but the coach showed his level of confidence in Florida's two-time Mr. Basketball. Calathes played 33 minutes, the most of any player. He showed his versatility by playing point guard, shooting guard and small forward. The freshman chased history but came up two assists shy of a triple-double in his first game. Calathes scored 18 points, grabbed 13 rebounds and dished out eight assists. Corey Brewer is the only player in school history to achieve a triple-double. He recorded 15 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds in a blowout win against Jacksonville on Dec. 18, 2005. "I just try to fill the stat sheet like coach tells me to do," Calathes said. "Just go out there and play hard, do what I can to win." Speights led all scorers with 22 points. All five freshmen tallied double figures.

32, ALLIGATOR E FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2,2007 Lasting Impression By PHIL KEGLER Alligator Staff Writer pkegler@alligator.org For the last 10 years, there's been a McCray on the UF volleyball roster. But that legacy is nearing its end. First it was All-American middle blocker Nicole. Now it's her younger sister and the Gators' starting opposite hitter, Amber. "[My teamates] joke around and call me 'Grandma,' Amber said. "Partially because I've been here five years and partially because they always say I'm old and falling apart." Either way, it's clear she's left an imprint on the program. Athleticism in the Genes The McCray sisters seemed destined to play sports as they grew up in Longview, Texas. Their parents met playing basketball at Panola Junior College in Texas. "We were constantly around some sort of sports or watching sports," said Nicole, Amber's older sister by five years, now the volleyball coach at Georgia Southern. "Our parents wanted us to play basketball, so when we started playing volleyball, it was kind of weird. But they jumped on board and loved it ever since." An athletic background helped McCray's parents understand what their daughters were going through. "We knew about working hard, working out, going to the gym, getting home late," said Darlene McCray, Amber's mother. "It was really just'the family continuing on." Amber remembers watching Nicole join the East Texas Juniors, a club volleyball teamnit age 12. The next year, she wanted in. "I begged my mom, because I just wanted to be on a team," she said. "I didn't care that I didn't play. I just wanted to travel and F START AT THE NATION'S LARGEST INDEPENDENT COLLEGE NEWSPAPER. WV-,rever you go after college, experience is the edge you'll need to find a job. Start your career now by getting the experience out of state for four years and had bought many plane tickets for Nicole to come home. As any mother might, she hoped Amber would be different. "I was trying to get Amber to stay in Texas because that was my baby and I wanted her to be close," Darlene said. be on a team." So Amber began her volleyball career playing on the 12-and-under team at 8 years old. "My whole memory from that year is watching the game from the sidelines," she said. "I was awful. I might have got in to serve a couple times in a year, and I missed my underhand serve, but that was pretty much my memory from that whole year." Amber took a year off from club ball during the sixth grade to play city-league basketball, but she still played volleyball in school. Taking the time off from club may have actually -helped her game. Volleyball "It was funny, because I'd say that was actually the year I made the most improvement because I went to my sister's (high school) practices whenever I could," she said. While she played basketball and ran track throughout high school, she always returned to volleyball, her favorite sport, her first love. Tough Sell With her older sister playing at UF, it may have seemed natural that Amber would become part of the Gators when Nicole graduated. While Amber had known UF coach Mary Wise since the seventh grade, it wasn't the quick decision Wise might have hoped. "It was a really up-and-down process," Amber said. "For the longest time, I didn't want to come to UF because [Nicole] came here, and I didn't want to live in her shadow. Nicole did not try to sway her sister one way or the other. "Amber's her own person," Nicole said. "I only talked to her if she needed me to or if she asked for help with anything."

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2007 0 ALLIGATOR, 33 SEC sack leader Vanderbilt to test Tebow's mobility 4 EI 0* 2 0) 0 2 CL (D Vanderbilt linebacker Patrick Benoist, top, celebrates with linebacker Jonathan Goff during their 24-13 win against Miami (Ohio) on Saturday. By MIKE MCCALL Alligator Staff Writer mmccall@alligator.org Last week, UF proved that one bruised shoulder can change an entire season. With quarterback Tim Tebow's right .shoulder hampering his running abilities, Georgia was able to blitz early and often to disrupt the Gators' offense. The Bulldogs racked up six sacks more than UF had allowed all season -in the win that knocked the Gators from the top of the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division. This week will carry the same concern as No. 18 UF faces Vanderbilt, which leads the SEC in sacks. The Commodores are known for blitzing opponents often, and the formula has worked so far this season. "On three out of four snaps, they are bringing either four or five men," UF coach Urban Meyer said. "They're bringing fiveman pressure a lot of times, they move their front and they're disruptive. "You have to be very disciplined when you play a team like that because they cause a lot of lost-yardage plays." If the threat of Tebow running is absent for the second straight week, the Gators can expect even more pressure from the Commodores. "We like to get pressure on the quarterback," said Vanderbilt linebacker Jonathan Goff, who leads the team with 71 tackles. "I'm really not sure how the coaches are going to call it, but we obviously want to get to the quarterback any way we can." What makes Vanderbilt's blitz scheme hard to stop is its diversity -alternating between three and four down linemen and sending different linebackers on each blitz. In a 17-6 win against then-No. 6 South Carolina two weeks ago, the Commodores tallied seven sacks for a loss of 50 yards. Regardless of Tebow's status, Vanderbilt will bring the same pressure they have relied on all year. "We usually mix it up a little bit," Goff said. "We have a game plan coming into the week, and I don't think it will be anything too different from what we normally do." UF's offensive line was somewhat blindsided by Georgia's persistent pressure last week, but it is expecting pressure against Vanderbilt. "With Georgia, they don't blitz a whole lot from the outside," UF center Drew Miller said. "That's why it hit us as a surprise in the beginning of the game, because they're not a blitzaa .ing team. "-,="-5" "Vanderbilt is known for blitzing CrsaNrsR anyway. That's just what they do. They bring blitzes about 50 percent of the time, so we're just preparing for all of that this week." Meanwhile, Goff and the Commodores aren't sure which Tebow they will see Saturday "If he's not going to run as much, I definitely expect him to try and spread the ball around to those wide receivers and backs," Goff said. "He has a lot of offensive weapons to work with. "I just look for them to spread the ball around to their athletes in open space, where they can take advantage of their athleticism and speed." The best way to utilize that speed is still with a healthy, mobile Tebow, and Meyer is staying optimistic about Tebow's ability to run this weekend. "His shoulder is a lot better, so I hope he will," Meyer said.

34, ALLIGATOR E FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2,2007 UF focused on record, not revenge against Arkansas I THE RAZORBACKS HANDED THE GATORS THEIR ONLY LOSS. By EVAN DREXLER Alligator Writer UF's defeat at the hands of Arkansas was only three weeks ago, but it's a fading memory for the Gators. "We lost to them the first time, but that's because our team didn't come in focused," senior mliddle blocker Kisya Killingsworth said. "They beat us, but what are you going to do? That loss has already come and gone." Though the players may not feel like they have to get revenge on the Razorbacks, their opportunity comes Sunday at 1 p.m. in the O'Connell Center. If not for Arkansas' (10-14, 4-10 Southeastern Conference) win in Fayetteville on Oct. 12, UF (21-1, 14-1 SEC) would be undefeated. "I think more important than [revenge] is maintaining our lead in the [standings]," UF coach Mary Wise said. "And a win will do that. Any loss brings us closer back to the pack, and we're trying to win this outright." UF currently holds a two-and-a-half-match advantage over Alabama for the best record in the SEC. The Gators have Volleyball more time to prepare for Arkansas than they did back in October. Instead of only getting one day off between matches, UF had three days of preparation and decided to take Thursday off to relax. "The weird schedule kind of bit us in the butt last time," senior outside hitter Marcie Hampton said. Since the loss, UF has played five matches and lost only one game. The Gators have swept their last four opponents. Still, Wise and the Gators know better than to take the Razorbacks lightly. "Arkansas gives us matchup problems," Wise said. "The first time we played them, we did not do a very good job preparing the team." UFSOCCER Seniors prepare for final home matches this weekend By KARL HYPPOLITE Alligator Writer It will be bittersweet when the Gators take the field this weekend. UF (11-4-2, 7-2 Southeastern Conference) hosts South Carolina (13-4-2, 5-3-2 SEC) tonight at 6 and Vanderbilt (6-8-3, 3-4-2 SEC) on Sunday at 12:30 p.m. in what will be the final home contests for the Gators' eight seniors. "It's actually really sad,". senior Daniela Sanchez said. "I was talking to Shana (Hudson) the other day and she said she can't believe four years have flown by. It's sad and exciting at the same time. It's our last game, and hopefully we come out with a win." The seniors aren't the only players who want to go out on a high note. UF's underclassmen intend to put in extra effort to give them a proper sendoff. "I definitely think there's an extra push for it," goalkeeper Katie Fraine Fraine said. "We have a lot of seniors this year and we love our seniors, and we really want to give them a bang." Senior Night is generally on Friday for UF. Inclement weather forced the Gators and the Commodores to move their match on Oct. 5 to Sunday. The seniors will be honored in a daytime ceremony Sunday instead of under the lights tonight. Though the senior class has recorded several big victories, there's still one thing missing from its resume: a national championship. "A perfect ending would be a national championship," forward Ashley Harris said. "Having the national championship ring that's the bling bling. A national championship would make it the perfect season." rP--------Archer Rd.

36, ALLIGATOR E FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2,2007 UFIFOOTBALL Pouncey impresses at DT By BRYAN JONES Alligator Staff Writer bjones@alligator.org Freshman Mike Pouncey continues to impress UF coach Urban-Meyer on the defensive side of the ball. A day after confirming the converted center would play at defensive tackle against Vanderbilt, Meyer left the door open for a possible start by Pouncey. "I've seen energy, I've seen a young guy that loves football, I've seen a tough guy and a big guy," Meyer said. "He's got that big ol' rear end you need in there to stop some runs. Meyer said it would be a game-time decision as to who will start alongside senior Clint McMillan at defensive tackle. Pouncey's only experience on the defensive line until this week in practice was playing in goal-line situations in high school, Meyer said, so he still has a lot to learn about the position. "He's really smart," Meyer said. "There is not an issue as far as football smart. Understanding scoop blocks and understanding what goes on on offense has actually helped him." Pouncey is filling in due to season-ending injuries to Javier Estopinan-and Brandon Antwine. Meyer hasn't decided whether the position switch will be permanent. The coach expects Carl Johnson, Maurice Hurt and Marcus Gilbert to help replace Pouncey in the offensive line rotation. Pouncey's twin brother, Maurkice, starts at guard Meyer on the offensive line. TAILBACK BY COMMITTEE: After declaring the starting running back job "wide open" earher this week, Meyer said the Gators will go with a committee approach Saturday against Vanderbilt. He said sophomores Brandon James, Percy Harvin and Jarred Fayson, as well as junior Kestahn Moore, will all carry the ball. Moore lost his hold on the starting job after a mistake-riddled performance last week against Georgia. Tennis team depleted By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC Alligator Writer The women's tennis team might have the greatest ratio of injured players of any UF team right now. Only two of the seven Gators on the roster will travel to the Southeastern Conference Fall Coaches' Championship at Auburn, which lasts today through Sunday The rest of the team is nursing injuries ranging from pulled muscles to wrist and foot injuries. Sophomore Megan Alexander and senior Lolita Frangulyan will represent the team in what willbe the Gators' last tournament of the fall. Coach Roland Thornqvist hopes to see improved play from the duo, as each player lost dose matches in the first round of the TA South Regionals. "It's going to be interesting to see .if they can translate that good play (in practice) into good play in the match," Thomqvist said. The competition will be challenging at the tournament because most of the elite players in the conference did not qualify for the ITA National Indoor Championships and will play in Auburn instead. Along with competing in singles play, the Men's UF duo will team Tennis up on the doubles court, where Thomqvist would like to see them continue fundamental and aggressive play "They're very explosive," he said. As Alexander and Frangulyan finish up. the fall schedule, Thornqvist is already focusing on the spring season. "We're hoping to get everybody healthy at the right time," Thomqvist said. "We just got to try to get healthy, and that's probably our main concern." \CANCER NR C Er igfti P R C) J E C T Finally! Aprescription with side effectsyou want.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2,2007 K ALLIGATOR, 37 Commodores employ injured QB tandem with Adams, Nickson ADVANCE, from page 39 into it, and we've still got to get some continuity in the recruiting and continuity in the development. And that's why I think, you look at a Vanderbilt, you look at teams that have had that consistency, that's what everyone is looking for." Vanderbilt may use two quarterbacks against the Gators -Mackenzi Adams and Chris Nickson. Nickson played well against the Gators last year, but Adams took the starting job from Nickson earlier this season. Both players suffered injuries last week against Miami (Ohio), but both are expected to be ready for Saturday. Meanwhile, the Gators will have to fend off a tough Vanderbilt pass rush with an injured quarterback of their own. Tim Tebow's bruised right shoulder is feeling better, Meyer said, but the injury still could continue to restrict Tebow from running as much as UF would like. Facing a team that loves to blitz, protecting Tebow could be a key for the F Gators, particularly after alFootball lowing six sacks last week against Georgia. "How Tim handles [the pressure] is going to be about how the offensive line handles it and how the receivers get open," Meyer said. "[Vanderbilt's] personnel is SEC-caliber personnel, especially their defense. I think their defensive personnel is really good." Despite the Commodores' improvement this season, a loss to Vanderbilt would still be embarrassing for a G'ators team that still has hopes of an SEC title. "I think they still fit in that category where we say we shouldn't lose to them," Caldwell said. "We have the better talent, better athletes and we are more confident, so they are still in that category for us." BASES, from page 39 are not well suited to stop a wide receiver like Bennett. In this college football season, everything has been wack, sure. But did you really see UF standing at just 5-3? The Gators are more talented than GeorgiaThey're more talented than Auburn. They showed that talent against LSU -arguably the most talented team in the nation -and had a respectable road loss. After that game, Coach Urban Meyer said the Gators will be back "smokin'." Sorry, Coach, but there hasn't even been enough smoke to roast a marshmallow lately. UF isn't losing this game, but the point is that you can't be sure. Yes, I think the Gators will win out. But I said the same thing a week ago. As talented as UF is, Vanderbilt could conceivably come in and knock off the oncecalled "Mighty Gators." Even though UF is better than both the No. 1 and No. 2 teams in America -Ohio State and Boston College -it doesn't even deserve to play in its conference championship game. Where has the team that obliterated Tennessee gone? Even if the Gators sneak into Atlanta for the SEC title game, they got there through the help of other teams. They will have earned the chance if other teams lose -I've never bought into the "you got lucky" ordeal -but you can't say they're better than the other contending teams. Fact is, when South Carolina, FSU and Vanderbilt look and see UF on their schedule, they don't cringe. Instead, they see it as just another opportunity. There's nothing intimidating about a three-loss team. It's weird that 'Arizona State losing a game is more of an upset than UF losing one. Even with all the roster turnaround the Gators have this year, you still expect a defending champion team to have some aura around it. This team doesn't have that anymore. UF's defense had a tsRdemarked toughness to it last year. This year, you can tell they're still a bunch of kids wondering how prom went by so fast. These underclassmen have been through a lot -a captain getting arrested, a teammate's death and three losses -but they have to put all that behind them. That's over. UF needs to figure out its problems somehow. Please, don't send fans to the Liberty Bowl in Memphis, Tenn., for a matchup against a Conference USA team.

Sports FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2007 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Picks Column SITE: The Swamp, Gainesville, (cap. 88,548) KICKOFF: Saturday 12:30 p.m. TV/RADIO: Lincoln Financial/ WRUF AM850 Vanderbilt isn't exactly known for its football, but we at the alligatorSports brand picks column were determined to find someone who considers himself a Commodores fan. Meet Conrad G. Lucas II, cofounder of Vanderbilt mega-fan group, the Robber Baron Rowdies. So apparently, there is more than one fan. Who knew? The Robber Baron Rowdies-were formed this season by Lucas and four of his friends, who decided to throw Vandy's version of a tailgate every week for home games. Each Saturday, the group and its mascot, Jack Whodat the dog, set up tent in Vandyville and construct a top-10 list for the Commodores' opponent. Past top-10 lists include "Lies Told by Nick Saban" and "Hotty Toddy, Gosh Almighty, These Ten Things Would Suck." Now, for those who don't know what a robber baron is, let's take a timeout for a little history lesson. Robber barons were American capitalists of the latter part of the 19th century who became wealthy through exploitation. Cornelius Vanderbilt made his fortune more than a century ago by controlling numerous ferry, steamship and railroad lines. Lucas and his buddies decided their university's namesake made the perfect source for the title of their tailgate. "Robber barons were successful and aggressive and well known for being very good at what they did," Lucas said. "We want Vanderbilt athletics to have those traits."

While Vanderbilt (5-3, 2-3 SEC) is traditionally supposed to be the conference's bottom-feeder, UF (5-3, 3-3 SEC) has struggled against the Commodores recently. And this may be the best Vanderbilt team yet. The Commodores, who haven't been to a bowl game since 1982, are just one win away from being bowl eligible. And at 5-3, they enter Saturday's game UF wide receiver Andre Caldwell runs past a Troy defender during the the Gators' 59-31 victory over Troy on Sept. 8 in The Swamp. with the same overall record as the Gators and are just a half game behind UF in conference play. "They have some athletes out thePi that make plays, and they're coached well," UF wide receiver Andre Caldwell said. "They're a challenge to any team they face." Last season, the Gators needed to recover an onside kick to ensure a six-point victory against the Commodores. In 2004, UF trailed Vanderbilt at halftime before rallying in the second half. But the Gators' biggest scare came in 2005, the last time the Commodores visited The Swamp and UF coach Urban Meyer's first game against Vanderbilt. "They have some athletes out there that make plays, and they're coached well." Andre Caldwell UF wide receiver After squandering a 14-point lead with less than three minutes remaining, the Gators needed double overtime to pull off a 49-42 victory. "Whenever they play us, they come ready to play," Caldwell said. "They strap it up and get ready for us. We have to be more ready and prepared than them this week to win this game." Meyer said Vanderbilt's improvement comes as a result of Coach Bobby Johnson's ability to build a consistent program over time. "Programs develop and recruit, we're not a program," Meyer said. "We're three years SEE ADVANCE, PAGE 37 UF's championship aura no longer present atch out -here come the mighty Vanderbilt Commodores! Well, maybe not, but the Commodores certainly shouldn't be intimidated by the Gators. Not anymore, at least. After the LSU loss, the Gators had paved themselves a path to win out. They'd likely return to the Southeastern Conference title game and probably would've been favored to win it. Then the Gators' defense let a third-string redshirt freshman crush them for 188 yards and three touchdowns. I don't care if Knowshon E 2002: UF quarterback Rex Grossman completes a school record 36 passes in the Gators' 20-13 win versus Georgia. Moreno is going to be one of the most talented backs in the nation next season -he was making just his second career start. Moreno and his offensive line outmanned, outhustled and out-just-about-everythinged the Gators on Saturday. Now the intimidation factor of being a defending national champion is gone. To any remaining Gators opponents, the glimmer of those championship rings means nothing. Any banners and signs commemorating last season's David-like championship victory against Ohio State are simply gathering dust. Brian Steele Steele-ing Base bsteele@alligator.org T i m T e b o w has a bum shoulder. At this rate, even Florida S t a t e s o f f e n s e is stoked about going against this defense. UF is still one of the most talented teams in the nation, but that hasn't transitioned to the field. The talent level between UF and Vanderbilt is huge, but the standings don't reflect that. The Gators are 3-3 in conference, E Former UF and current Denver Broncos defensive end Jarvis Moss broke his right shin in practice Thursday. He is scheduled to have surgery in the next few days and will be out for three to four months. and the Commodores are just a half-game behind at 2-3. Vandy even made a closer game of it with Georgia in a 20-17 loss than UF did. The only opponent left on the Gators' schedule that will be lacking confidence against them is Florida Atlantic, and its mascot is an owl. Something about a chubby bird whose best asset is its keen eyesight doesn't scream intimidation. I'd even feel confident if I were Vanderbilt. Who's going to cover wide receiver Earl Bennett?
