UF students



leave local jail

By DEVIN CULCLASURE$
Alli gator Writer I
dculclasure@alligator.org w

Two UF students arrested at an appearance by former
U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales on Monday night
were released from the Alachua County Jail on Tuesday
afternoon.
Donning orange jumpsuits and black hoods, Richard
Gutierrez and Kevin Hachey climbed on stage about 15
minutes into Gonzales' address at the
Phillips Center for the Performing Arts.
University Police Department officers
then led the students away without a A
struggle and arrested them for disrupt-
ing a public event.
UPD Lt. Stacy Ettel said the stu-
dents were cooperative after police ap-
Gonzales proached them.
"I think there was a point made, and
that point was well-received, at least by those who wanted
to hear it," Ettel said.
After being processed at the UPD station, Gutierrez and
Hachey were taken to the Alachua County Jail, which is
managed by the Alachua County Sheriff's Office. i
The students were booked around 11 p.m. and then
changed into inmate jumpsuits. They were fingerprinted,
photographed and put up in a holding cell.
At 9 a.m. on Tuesday, they appeared before a judge, who Jeremiah Wilson, Alligator
released them without having to post bail because they Within Reach
agreed to appear in court in about 30 days. Connor Thompson, 6, awaits a pass from his father, Ron, during a game of catch Tuesday evening on the

dents plead or are found guilty.



Students advised to use caution for holiday travel


* THE WEEK'S RISKIEST TRAVEL TIME
IS FROM NOON TO 11 P.M. TODAY.

With 26 student deaths since January, in-
cluding several caused by traffic accidents, law
enforcement officials are advising students to
be careful on the roads this weekend.
Officials said students should take pre-
cautions for their safety, such as wearing
seat belts, reducing driving distractions and
avoiding dangerous traffic situations because
of the extra traffic from Thanksgiving and the

football game,
Lt. Mike Burroughs, Florida Highway
Patrol spokesman for the Gainesville area, said
the most dangerous and congested travel time
is from noon to 11 p.m. today.
"For those travelers who are going to be
traveling out of town, if they could delay their
trip to start early Thursday morning, they
would find a much safer trip and much less
congested roadways," he said.
Officer Darin Gentry of the University
Police Department said students should also
avoid waiting until the last minute to return to
Gainesville for the same reasons.
Burroughs said the main interstates are
usually the most dangerous for driving dur-
ing the holiday weekend. However, the busy


shopping weekend and the big football game
make any roads dangerous, he said.
Taking obvious precautions like wearing
seat belts, driving sober and avoiding text
messages and other distractions are essential
to student safety, he said.
Burroughs said adding
Around distracted, fatigued drivers
Gainesville to the heavy congestion of
the roadways makes for a
"deadly situation."
Gentry echoed the importance of students
staying alert while driving by getting enough
sleep and avoiding alcohol.
He said with the football game this week-
end, students need to watch out for other
people driving.drunk.

E A mystery is afoot
on UF's campus:
Who smashed the
head of the lion
statue that sits
outside the Sigma
Alpha Epsilon
Fraternity house?
See story, pg. 4.


Drivers should be especially careful be-
tween 10 p.m. and 3 a.m., which is the most
common time for alcohol-related accidents,
he said.
FHP encourages drivers to call the 511 sys-
tem if they are stuck in gridlock on the road.
The system gives live updates on road block-
ages and alternate routes.
Burroughs said with the high number of
law enforcement officers patrolling the road-
ways this weekend, it is important for stu-
dents to be aware of the Move Over Act.
When drivers see an officer on the side of
the road, they need to slow down to 20 mph
below the speed limit on a two-lane road or
move to the lane farther from the roadside if
driving on the interstate.

HEALTH

Be wary of turkey binges


By LANE NIESET
Alligator Contributing Writer
With temptations of pumpkin pie, gin-
gerbread, turkey with gravy and more, it's
easy to make bad decisions when eating
during the holidays.
Students often make poor choices be-
cause they do not know what the right
choices are, said Susan Jeck, a nutrition-
ist and owner of B-Fit Body Boutique in
Jupiter.
"Alot of people think that Thanksgiving
means to stuff yourself," she said, "but that
is not a good idea."
Jeck said to focus on vegetables as much
as possible, limit desserts and sugar intake
and be careful to eat items in moderation.
Liz Lagasse, a registered dietitian for
GatorWell, said eating balanced meals
and stopping when feeling full help con-


trol overeating and increase enjoyment of
food.
But Dominique Richardson, a UF fresh-
man, said she usually watches what she
eats and feels Thanksgiving is the only
day she can splurge by eating the foods
she wants.
"It doesn't have to be a huge
feast."
Susan Jeck
nutritionist

Richardson looks at Thanksgiving as
the one day to ease up on dieting and enjoy
food with her family, she said.
Jeck agrees but said it's important to
keep self-control.
"Look at Thanksgiving as a nice meal,"
Jeck said. "It doesn't have to be a huge
feast."


Blood supply set to dip


By OLEE FOWLER
Alligator Contributing Writer


While students return to their homes
for holiday festivities and companionship,
the LifeSouth Community Blood Centers
remain lonely places.
With the exodus of the student popula-
tion, so goes nearly 30 percent of blood do-
nations LifeSouth receives in Gainesyille,
said Christine Evans, LifeSouth donor
services manager.
"It starts right around Thanksgiving
because people are focused on other
things," she said. "Everyone is thinking
about their holiday plans, and people just
aren't thinking about the blood supply."
To prepare for a dip in the blood sup-


ply, LifeSouth plans events strategically to
coincide with times when blood supplies
are lowest.
The Greek Blood Drive is held twice a
year. The fall semester drive, which ended
last week, used to be held in mid-October
but was delayed to be
Around closer to the holidays,
Gainesville Evans said.
LifeSouth also
works with local media and radio stations
to advertise the shortage in the blood sup-
ply. Blood donor stations are moved to
different locations, and LifeSouth has pro-
motions with local companies to increase
awareness.
"The coupons and cookies are a defi-
nite plus for donors," Evans said.

Mystery man may


have smashed lion


The lion statue at the Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity house
Monday night.


Charles Roop / Alligator Staff
stands headless after being vandalized


By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

Twenty-five years ago, a now-
infamous man named Edgar was
left with a naked scalp, vowing to
get revenge.
On Sunday morning, members
of UF's chapter of Sigma Alpha
Epsilon Fraternity discovered the
face of their lion statue smashed,
a sin they suspect Edgar of com-
mitting, said Sam Warfield, presi-
dent of Sigma Alpha Epsilon.
In 1982, repainting the lion
statue outside the house at 2
Fraternity Row was punishable
by razor, Warfield said.
He said Edgar a man with
no known last name and his
girlfriend sullied the stone cat
anyway, and members of -the
fraternity shaved the offenders'


heads against their will.
The members probably tied
them down to complete the trim,
Warfield said.
Edgar was not a member of
Sigma Alpha Epsilon, known as
SAE, Warfield added.
The fraternity planned on tak-
ing its Christmas picture in front
of the lion.
However, Warfield said it
would have to wait until the head
is repaired.
He said several SAE alumni
have told the present chapter
they've seen Edgar around UF's
campus recently.
The alumni also said to watch
out for him.
"It's always been a folklore
rumor," Warfield said. "And I've
seen stranger things be true than
that."


Group works to keep homeless warm during winter


* BLANKETS HAVE BEEN COLLECTED.

By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

With wintry weather around the comer,
blankets were collected this month for the
Gainesville homeless population.


The Alachua County Coalition for the
Homeless and Hungry collected about 100
blankets since Oct. 23, said Jim Wright, execu-
tive director for the coalition.
Some of those were collected at the
"Homeless Night Out and Service Fair" on
Nov. 7.
About 40 of those blankets came from
Congregation B'nai Israel last week.


"We need as many sleeping bags and blan-
kets as there are unshel-
Around tered homeless people in
Gainesville Gainesville," Wright said.
The January 2007 count
of unsheltered homeless
was 395.
"1 feel disappointed in our efforts to give
blankets," he said.


The coalition will try to get more sleeping
bags next year because they keep people the
warmest, he said.
Wright said people can still donate to the
Alachua County Housing Authority at 703 NE
First St.
"We're always excited when people give us
donations, and of course winter still has a long
way to go," he said.

UPD learned


lesson from


Tasergate
W ith one day before break,
we have a lot to be
thankful for. But with
Monday's speech, one thing that is
fairly low-key tops my list.
Thank goodness we didn't have
a worse incident at former U.S.
Attorney General Alberto Gonzales'
speech. There were more protesters.
They caused a ruckus. A sense of
impending catastrophe was in the
air. Sound familiar?
Except this time, the ending
was different. No Tasers, no iconic
quotes and no committees on the
lawful use of police force.
Other circumstances made the
officers' handling of the scenario
even more remarkable. The speaker
was not a
presidential
candidate
but a govern-
I ment official
disgraced for
his disputed
Vincent Gagliano firing of U.S.
letters@alligator.org attorney y s.
The potential
for trouble was greater given what
he did in office.
It seems the University Police
Department has learned from
its mistakes. The massive outcry
against Tasergate prompted cam-
pus security to rethink how it uses
force to restrain combative people.
Hopefully, UPD will keep its new
mindset in the years to come -
don't blame police for not listening
to angry students.
One of the most common com-
plaints from the Kerry forum was
the way UPD restrained Andrew
Meyer. Many people wondered,
"Why couldn't they just subdue
him and remove him from the
room? They didn't really need to
Taser him." That's precisely what
UPD did when Richard Gutierrez
and Kevin Hachey ascended the
stage.
Even the protesters were better
behaved the second time around.
Sure, they were unhappy with
some of the things Gonzales did in
office, but they were more civil in
expressing their message. Among
the group, there was a noticeable
lack of vulgar language. Most com-
plied with the officers throughout
the event.
UPD knew what most of the pro-
testers had planned and avoided

Things to be thankful for at UF this holiday


A h, Thanksgiving. I'm thankful for the
f\ holiday you can't screw up. There's no
L need to fret about finding the perfect
gift for your mom or someone hot to kiss at
midnight. It's socially acceptable to eat so much
pie that you can't get up from the table. Here's
what I'm thankful this year:
1. Billy Donovan's morning-after regret
about getting in bed with the Orlando Magic.
He's atoned for his indiscretion by leading our
mostly freshman team back into the Top 25.
2. The powers that be have officially recog-
nized UF's status as Top Dog. I'm talking about
CollegeHumor.com's No. 2 nod and Playboy
featuring girls from Florida in its "Girls of the
SEC" issue in September. One of the girls lives
near my boyfriend he's definitely grateful.


Leigh Shapiro 3. Prices around
Editorial Notebook campus are still low for
tuition, football tickets,
presidential salaries ...
oops, maybe scratch that last one.
4. Accent. This semester's lineup of notable
speakers, which Accent chairman Steven Blank
called "electrifying," has certainly engaged the
campus in widespread debate. I can only hope
next semester will be as exciting.
5. Gainesville liberals. Through student and
resident activism, more voices than ever are tell-
ing the UF administration how they feel about
issues including police brutality and graduate-
student rights. Some individuals will always
cross the line of decorum, but it's better to err
on the side of more communication than less.


6. Library hours that will be extended even
longer than they were last exam season. Maybe
if we pack Library West during the first two
weeks in December, Student Government could
make a case for keeping some libraries in busi-
ness late at night on a regular basis. If the gym is
open late on certain days, then popular libraries
should be, too.
7. Tim Tebow. Period.
8. The fact that all of my classes are canceled
today. Unlike the few poor souls stuck on cam-
pus reading this, I'm home, feeling guilt-free
about skipping classes, and making and eating
pies. Maybe next year UF will allow all students
to do the same.
Leigh Shapiro is a junior majoring in econom-
ics. She is a member of the editorial board.


We tackle the issue of how the presi-
dential races are going on both sides of
the game. Will Hillary best Obama? Will
Huckabee ever make it to the White House
with that ridiculous name?

As one of the protesters, I'd like to point out that any sign-holding, hood-
wearing, or back-turning was done in complete silence. It was the rest of the
crowd who heckled the hell out of that fascist and make a ruckus during our
brief demonstrations.

Editorial
We're starving. The thought of eating another meal out
of a box, bag or can is enough to make out stomachs turn.
So we're holding out for the gluttonous pleasure that is
epitomized in the Thanksgiving meal.
And the rest of the world wonders why we're such a fat
country. We blame it solely on the pilgrims. But as for our
personal hunger strike, we hope to lose a few pounds from
dehydration and muscle atrophy before we gain three
times of it back from gorging ourselves this weekend. But
as we count down the minutes until our Thanksgiving
feast, we can't seem to get our minds off of food and
we don't know why. So if you're still in town dreaming
of your own dinner, try not to drool on this week's salty-
creamy-crunchy-sweet-savory-saucy-spicy-tender edition
of...



Darts & Laurels
It's been a short week, but that doesn't mean we don't
have plenty of stuff to praise or complain about. We love
complaining almost as much as we love pie. On that note,
we throw a we-hope-you-find-lumps-in-your-mashed-po-
tatoes DART to the University of Georgia Bulldogs for
ruining the Gators' hopes of ,going to the Southeastern
Conference title game not once, but twice this season.
We're not bitter or anything, but a team that rushed the
endzone after a first-quarter touchdown- because their
coach told them to and laughed on the sideline as it
happened does not have any class and does not deserve
to be a contender for the SEC championship. Hopefully
Tennessee will pull through so we don't have to worry
about seeing 'another display of poor sportsmanship in
Atlanta next weekend.
Up next, we give a now-that's-the-whipped-cream-
on-the-pumpkin-pie LAUREL to UF's No. 2 ranking by
CollegeHumor.com. Thanks to our wealth of cute co-eds
and our giant stadium, among other factors, UF is the sec-
ond-best place to attend college. We're not biased or any-
thing, but we don't think Pennsylvania State University,
the No. 1 college, holds a candle to our fair campus. Come
on. It's much easier to be cute in a miniskirt and a tank top
than in a parka, ski cap, mittens and long underwear.
And now we have a who's-the-bigger-turkey, you-or-
the-one-in-the-oven? DART to Alberto Gonzales, the
former U.S. attorney general who Accent brought to speak
Monday night. We darted him last week for some of his re-
quests to Accent (which the organization denied), but now
we dart him for what he's done. Condoning torture in vio-
lation of the Geneva Conventions and firing nine U.S. at-
torneys for reasons he cannot remember are what most of
the speech's attendees probably wanted to hear him speak
about, but instead he spoke about living the American
Dream. Yeah, we've never heard that one before.
Accent brought Gonzales to stir up controversy, and
that he did. We've got a no-pie-for-you DART for the
protesters who decided to cause enough of a scene to get
themselves arrested by taking to the stage in the middle
of the speech. But not all the protesters were out of line,
so we give them an extra-slice-of-pie LAUREL for being
respectful while making their point.
We love animals, so of course we've got to give a he'd-
pardon-more-turkeys-than-any-president LAUREL to
Jack Hanna, the world-famous zookeeper and wildlife
conservationist. He spoke Tuesday in Gainesville and
recorded an episode of his show "Jack Hanna's Animal
Adventures" at the SFCC Teaching Zoo. Most of us prob-
ably grew up watching Hanna and his menagerie, so it's
an honor that he'd come to Gainesville.
We have to mention this week's football game before
we pass out from a loss of nutrients, so we give a we-hear-
Seminole-tastes-great LAUREL to the great matchup we
anticipate in The Swamp this weekend. We know you
want to watch the game, so stay safe this weekend on the
roads.

rial Notebook

Japan should stop whaling practices


s you sit down tomorrow to enjoy your turkey dinner,
surrounded by smiling family members and with the
prospect of pie in the not-so-distant future, people in
Japan will be sitting down to a plateful of ... whale.
"But wait," you ask, "aren't whales protected by the
International Whaling Commission, which Japan is a mem-
ber of? And what about the moratorium in the South Pacific
that's been in place since 1963?"
Well, it seems that Japan is more interested in continuing
cultural "traditions" (more on that later) than protecting the
many whale species that inhabit the Earth's oceans.
On Monday, a Japanese fleet set out on the country's
largest whaling expedition ever, hoping to bag nearly 1,000
minke whales, 50 fin whales and, perhaps most horrifying of
all, up to 50 humpback whales.
As the ship embarked, "Popeye the Sailor Man" played
over speakers, and the ship's crew toasted the occasion with
beer. The day before, Japanese officials had encouraged their
fellow countrymen to continue the whale-eating culture, ac-
cording to an article from The Associated Press.
Personal confession time: I am a ceteceaphile, a bona fide
whale lover. The thought of whales being harpooned chokes
me up. Sea World saddens me. "Free Willy" still makes me
cry, as Michael Jackson's "Will You Be There" blasts through
the TV speakers and Jesse's hand reaches for his friend (even
though Willy, as an orca, is not a true whale, but a member of
the dolphin family).
But back to real life and the real-life problem.
The International Whaling Commission bans commercial
whaling, but it allows hunting of whales for scientific pur-
poses. This is the guise Japan is using to justify its massive
hunt. Japan's Fisheries Agency says it wants to study the
whales' reproductive and feeding habits, but just about ev-
eryone has recognized the Japanese plan to sell the whales
for food. Wouldn't it make more sense to study reproductive
and feeding patterns on living whales, which, as a matter of
fact, reproduce and eat?
But hey, that's just my opinion, I'm no scientist. But I'm
also not going to be eating whale any time soon, which
brings us back to Japan's cultural tradition. I recognize the
Japanese have been enjoying whale dishCe for centuries. I


won't argue the ethics of it, but I will
argue with the method. Whales used
to be caught with nets and spears. It
took an entire village worth of men
to haul the catch back to shore. The
whale had to be gutted by hand. It
Jessica Holland was indeed a huge ordeal. There's
jholland@alligator.org no doubt this kind of whaling would
have been sustainable and could
shape cultural traditions.
But that's not how it is anymore. I won't disgust you
with too much exposition about how whales are handled
after their slaughter nowadays, but the harpoon and huge
whaling ships have completely changed the shape of whal-
ing and the "tradition" surrounding it. I will say, however,
that the harpoons used in commercial whaling have to be
long enough to penetrate through the whale's layers of blub-
ber. Some harpoons are equipped with bombs on the heads.
Often, the first shot isn't enough to kill the marine mammal.
And you thought getting your flu shot hurt.
Probably the best defense the whales have is the environ-
mental group Greenpeace, which has sent out its protest ship
Esperanza in search of the Japanese ships to try to disrupt
their hunt.
There are no "whale farms" where Japan can raise whales
for consumption like we do with cows and chickens. Since
so many species are slow-moving, it is nearly impossible for
them to defend themselves. Some whales may be heartier
than others, but not many have the tenacity of Moby Dick.
And it's even easier for the Captain Ahabs to track them
down, thanks to sonar technology.
The whales are then brought back to the mainland and
sold off to restaurants and individual customers. Whale meat
is sometimes served in school cafeterias, despite its high lev-
els of mercury unhealthy for growing kids.
Japan should end its whaling practices once and for all.
Whaling populations are only beginning to recover from
pre-commercial whaling levels. Does Japan want to bring the
gentle giants back to the brink of extinction?

Letters to the Editor
Nothing wrong with fishing T-shirts
In Monday's "Fashion" Alligator
Rants, "frat guys who wear Guy Harvey
shirts" were chastised for wearing the art-
ists's apparel simply because "Gainesville
doesn't have any good places to fish for
swordfish." As a longtime supporter of
Mr. Harvey's artwork and marine preser-
vation efforts, I'm a little baffled.
, So, according to this mindset, then, stu-
dents can't wear sneakers if they won't be
using a treadmill? To suggest that wearing
a Guy Harvey shirt in a landlocked area
is a fashion faux pas is ridiculous. Guy
Harvey shirts show captivating marine
creatures.
Someone's proximity to the ocean
should not affect the wear-ability of Mr.
Harvey's apparel. I say, don't "save your
Guy Harvey shirt" for "dad's boat."
Instead, wear it with pride, "frat guys"
and all students alike.

Protesters an embarrassment to UF
After attending Alberto Gonzales'
speech, I have never been so ashamed
and embarrassed to attend UF. I sim-
ply cannot believe people are so disre-


spectful and rude to someone who has
devoted his life to serving our country.
I really appreciated and enjoyed
what Mr. Gonzales had to say, and he
has been the first speaker Accent has
brought whom I actually wanted to
see.
Also, I think the Alligator used left-
wing bias in Tuesday's article about
the event.
Unfortunately, I could only hear
some of the speech due to the com-
motion caused by a group of people
who hate anyone involved in the Bush
administration.
While I loathe Sen. John Kerry with
every fiber in my being and thank God
every day for the fact that George Bush
is our president, I would, never have
dreamed of even going to see Sen.
Kerry, and I would never had heckled
him while he was speaking.
Those people should be ashamed of
their actions and how our university
continues to lose credibility due to out-
bursts like this.
Mr. Gonzales took the high road as
always and said, "Our young men and
women fight overseas to preserve this
kind of freedom of speech."

Students owe Gonzales an apology
For the first time since I have been
at UF, I was embarrassed to be a Gator
on Monday night. The treatment of Mr.
Gonzales was completely devoid of class,
professionalism and common decency.
So you don't like the man? Fine.
Protest outside. When someone is giving
a speech, you should not boo him, inter-
rupt every line of the speech or rush the
stage in homemade T-shirts. It speaks of
immaturity, overexaggerated idealism
and, worst of all, bad taste.
Mr. Gonzales' actions while in office
were, at worst, questionable, but he isn't a
monster. Controversy aside, he is a great
American success story and deserved
better than what UF showed him.
On behalf of Gators with common
sense and courtesy, I would like to apolo-
gize to Mr. Gonzales. I only hope the ac-
tions of many members of the crowd do
not give people the wrong impression of
our school.
We are, for the most part, good people
who do not treat visitors like pariahs.
Shame on you, UF students. Even if you
don't agree with Mr. Gonzales' politics,
show him some respect. He has earned it,
and Monday night, many of you lost it.

confronting them. The police correctly
avoided interfering with the protesters'
First Amendment rights. UF spokesman
Steve Orlando acknowledged that the
event was an overall success. It was a
more peaceful event the second time
around. This is good news, given Dr.
Jack Kevorkian's speech in the spring,
which was delayed because UF feared
students would follow Meyer's example
in the wake of Sen. John Kerry's forum.
It's much easier to focus on what
happened Tuesday than what did not.
But doing so ignores the lessons learned
from September's incident. Without
Meyer's misbehavior, yesterday might
have been a lot worse.
Have a happy Thanksgiving and
enjoy the UF-Florida State University
game.

Student remains


in critical condition


By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer
After hearing the news of
Ashley Ann Groves' accident
Monday afternoon, about 100 of
her friends arrived at Shands at
UF and prayed downstairs.
Since then, friends have been
filing in and out of the hospital.
'Groves' family has stayed at her
side.
Groves, a 19-year-old sopho-
more, was listed in critical con-
dition Monday after her scooter
struck a gray Acura TL near
Southwest Second Avenue.
Gainesville Police Department
Lt. Will Halvosa said the investi-
gation is ongoing, and toxicology
reports for everyone involved are
pending.
No charges have been filed,
but that may change depending
on Groves' condition, Halvosa
said.
A Shands spokeswoman said
Tuesday evening Groves was still
in critical condition.
Carly Sewell, a UF elemen-
tary education freshman, has
been close friends with Groves
since the ninth grade.
Sewell had already gone
home for Thanksgiving but trav-
eled back to Gainesville after


hearing about the accident.
"You never think it's going to
happen to somebody you know,"
Sewell said.
Groves' mother was in her
room for a few minutes before
her leg surgery and sang to her,
Sewell said.
"She opened her eyes a little
bit for her mom," she said.
Torie Fake,
Local 22, met Groves
News at church in
Groveland. Their
parents are best
friends.
"She's like a sister to me,"
Fake said.
When she heard of the acci-
dent, Fake said she was in shock.
Sewell said members of the
UF Fellowship of Christian
Athletes formed prayer groups
at the hospital yesterday and
cooked Groves' parents a meal.
"We just love her, and we're
ready for her to be back to nor-
mal," Sewell said. "It's going to
be a long recovery."
Groves' birthday is on
Saturday. She will be turning 20.
"I really honestly think she's
going to come through this,"
Fake said. "She's a fighter. That's
what all of her friends and every-
one are saying."


STUDENT LIFE

Heading home can be difficult


By LINDSAY SMITH
Alligator Contributing Writer

While many students are excited about pack-
ing up to go home and visit their families over
Thanksgiving break, some aren't too happy about
an extended stay at home.
"My family is pretty quirky," said journal-
ism major Elaine Wilson. "My mom's side of the
family is very Irish, and they consume a lot of
alcohol."
When she was younger, Wilson would become
increasingly uncomfortable around her family
during the holidays, but now she's used to it.
"I go home because I want to," she said. "I
wouldn't want to be anywhere else than with my
mom and dad."
But John Scanzoni, a professor of sociology
at UF who specializes in sociology of the family,
said such warm sentiments aren't always the case
around the holiday season.
"It depends how families feel about each oth-
er," he said. "The thing that binds kin together is
obligation it isn't always because they like each
other, much less love one another."
The atmosphere around the holidays can be
"cool but collected, emotionally not warm" for
some families, he said.
"When people get together, they don't say
what's on their minds or in their hearts," Scanzoni


said. But, that's not necessarily a bad thing, he
added. Often, students in college are more liberal
than their parents, who may feel that the "univer-
sity has corrupted" their sons and daughters.
"The key to keeping the peace is common
sense: If you are willing to tolerate stupid com-
ments and superficial conversation, everything
will be all right," Scanzoni said. "You won't be
emotionally hurt, just disappointed. Just say
nothing that matters talk about the weather."
"My family is pretty quirky."
Elaine Wilson
journalism student

For Caroline Lewis, an English major, argu-
ments with her family occur every time she goes
home for the holidays.
"It's always little squabbles over stupid things,
but it always happens," she said. "We can't even
spend five minutes together before we're fighting
again. Two seconds later, we've made up, but the
pattern just repeats itself."
But despite the "constant bickering about any-
thing and everything," family still comes first for
Lewis, especially for Thanksgiving.
"It's just comfortable being home with people
that you love," she said. "Arguing is half the
fun."

UF, FSU get greener


By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

Turfgrass footprints are
easy to patch up. A carbon
footprint damage done to
the atmosphere that results
in global warming isn't so
simple.
UF and Florida State
University officials have
found a way to counteract the
damaging emissions caused
by the football game Saturday,
a UF press release states.
The release says UF would
be the first university in the
nation to attempt the neutral-
ization.
Along with the Florida
Forestry Association and
Environmental Defense, UF
has arranged for about 18
acres of rural North Florida
land to be managed as a pine
plantation forest for 10 years.
The land is part of 100 acres
set aside by Jim and Winston
Bailey, two North Florida UF
supporters. The rest might be
used for future carbon offset-
ting projects.
Environmental Defense,
an environmental protection
group, will pay the Baileys to
manage the trees.
Dedee DeLongpr&
Johnston, director of UF's
Office of Sustainability, will


head the project.
DeLongpr&Johnston said
in the release that with the
expected attendance of 88,000
fans, Saturday's UF-FSU game
would generate more than
1,750 metric tons of carbon
dioxide.
Carbon dioxide comes from
burning fossil fuels in power
plants and vehicles, which is
the main human contributor
to global warming.
Trees take in carbon diox-
ide and release
Lo |al oxygen as part
News of their normal
0News growth.
"The faster a
tree grows, the more carbon
dioxide it removes," stated Jeff
Doran, executive vice presi-
dent of the Florida Forestry
Association, in the release.
"Since Florida's climate pro-
vides optimal growing condi-
tions, our forests can be very
efficient scrubbers of green-
house gases."
Eighteen acres of man-
aged forest, which would fill
about 14 football fields, would
almost absorb the carbon
released during the football
game.
Sources of Saturday's ex-
pected carbon outflow include
car emissions, lighting and op-
erating the stadium and lodg-
ing for the traveling fans.

Former students' info


leaked on Web site


By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Alligator Writer
dculclasure@alligator.org

More than 400 former UF students
might have been put at risk for identity
theft after their Social Security numbers
were posted on UF's Computing &
Networking Services Web site.
A news release from the Liberty
Coalition, a group that works to pre-
serve the privacy of individuals, said 14
files on the Web site contained "sensitive
information" of 534 former UF students,
including 415 Social Security numbers.
All the individuals were former
students of Richard Elnicki, a professor
of information systems and operations
management, and had taken classes ISM
4220 or ISM 4330 with him between 1998
and 2001, the release stated.
Many of the files had been online
since 1998.

by UF officials, who also worked with
major search engines to dear their caches
of the information, the
release stated.
Steve Orlando, UF
spokesman, said UF's
investigation showed
the numbers were
posted in Elnicki's
gradebook before
UFID numbers.
Orlando Those who suspect
their Social Security numbers were post-
ed can search their names on the Web
site www.ssnbreach.org, Orlando said.
Only about 350 numbers were post-
ed, and the Computing & Networking
Services Web site's logs indicated no-
body had accessed the information in
five years, he said.
UF is trying to find how the numbers
ended up online and also reach those
who might have been affected, he said.


New group aims to help kids


By ILEANA MORALES
Alligator Writer
imorales@alligator.org

Alisha Wainwright, a UF sophomore,
said she is hoping to bring creative learn-
ing, fun and a break from curriculums
geared toward FCAT to elementary school
students in Gainesville.
Wainwright is president of Students
Working For Educational Equality Today,
known as S.W.E.E.T.
The new organization's constitution
was approved Sunday by Student Senate's
Judiciary Committee.
Student organizations are not official
until their constitutions are approved.
S.W.E.E.T. is affiliated with Teach for
America and intended to get undergradu-
ate students involved with increasing
awareness of educational inequality.
Wainwright said S.W.E.E.T. plans to
start an after-school tutoring program in
the spring.
Her experience working with children
started as a counselor for Young At Art

Children's Museum in Davie, Fla., where
she learned how to bring a "fun, free as-
pect" to teaching.
"It's great to see the progression of kids
who don't want to learn anything to then
know names of art and give an upper-level
analysis," she said.
Wainwright said she wants to offer stu-
dents "confined to a desk learning FCAT"
a little more.
Leah Dietterle, Teach For
America campus campaign
Student coordinator and S.W.E.E.T.
Life external affairs chair, said she
expects more organizations
like S.W.E.E.T. will pop up at other uni-
versities.
"The needs of Gainesville schools are
not unique to Gainesville," Dietterle said.
She said she hopes students from all ma-
jors will see they don't have to be education
majors to make a difference in education.
"You 'see kids run around on dilapi-
dated old playgrounds with overgrown
weeds, and they deserve more than that,"
Dietterle said.

touch keyboard in FAO Schwarz.
UF free safety Major Wright: I am thankful
that I am free of that taped-up boxing glove
- a clubbed hand is no way to attract the
ladies.
UF wide receiver David Nelson: I am
thankful that there's a possibility the Gators
will be playing in the Capital One Bowl. I hear
Tiger Woods has a house in Orlando, so maybe
my deceiving looks will get me into the VIP
section of Club Paris.
UFP tight end Tate Casey: I am thankful
football season is almost over. I'm starting to
develop carpal tunnel syndrome from tying
half the team's neckties every game day.
Florida State football coach Bobby Bowden:
I am thankful my senility will prevent me
from realizing that the Seminoles are being
blown out Saturday, yet again.
UF twin linemen Mike and Maiirkice
Pouncey: We're thankful that for one day out
of the year, there's enough food on the table to
feed us both, so we don't have to elbow-smash
each other for the last turkey leg.
And now, in the true spirit of Thanksgiving,
a sincere message of gratitude...
The entire Gators football team: We're
thankful to have Percy Harvin back.


PICKS, from page 19

When Bowden does leave FSU, it will definitely be an
emotional separation. It goes without saying that the patriarch
of Seminoles football will still have some connection to the
program.
Luckily, all the gamet-and-g6ld action can be caught in
the common room at HarborChase on Saturdays, so Bowden
won't miss a thing.
Actually, he might be just as involved in the game as a TV
viewer as he is now on the sideline.
"My activities assistant is a big Florida State fan, so she leads
them in the Indian War Chant thing with the arm hatchet-chop,
whatever you call that thing," Lerner said.
Without a doubt, all the amenities and services of
HarborChase would suit Bowden just fine, and his wife can
join him in a plush, one bedroom apartment reserved for
couples.
There is one last thing though. The home would have to be
able to accommodate Bowden's celebrity status.
"My assistant said (Bowden) would be a real ringleader
around here," Lemer said. "He'd be involved in all of the ac-
tivities and heading them up.
"He'd probably like it here. It's a pretty happening place, I
have to say."
It's settled then. Bowden to HarborChase.
Now, onto the picks!
Leading off with a record of 65-45 is Bryan "absentee-sports


editor-in-chief" Jones, who involuntarily worked from the
road Tuesday evening, giving his thanks at 80 mph down 1-95.
Nice try, buddy.
Not far behind at 64-46 is alligatorSports.org editor Brian,
"Why drive in one lane, when you can use both?" Steele, who
hopes his podcasting skills will one day land him a job at
Lincoln Finahcial Sports.
Lagging in third at 60-50 is Mike "David Garrard may only
score touchdowns on Sundays, but he can score on me any day
of the week" McCall, who, like any diehard Eastern Carolina
fan, roots for North Carolina in basketball. Go figure.
With a record of 59-51 and fulfilling her womanly duties in
a cleanup role is assistant sports editor Jenna "Everytime Dan
Werner scores a basket, an angel gets its wings" Marina, who
decided to learn Spanish when she discovered she would be
headed to Columbia for the South Carolina game.
And in dead-ass last place with a piss-poor record of 56-54
is Nick "Unless they bring 'Prison Break" back, I'll be making
my own writer's strike official" Zaccardi, who, like Marion
Jones, will not be attending the Olympics in Beijing this year.

To some, he's a legend. To others,
he's senile.
He's the winningest coach in
Division I-A history and just a dadgumr
nice guy.
Florida State coach Bobby Bowden
is no doubt one of the faces of col-
lege football, but in his 32nd season
in Tallahassee, he's enduring as much
criticism as ever.
The 78-year-old Bowden is thought
to be out of touch with his team and
sometimes with reality,
Since it looks like his tenure with the
Seminoles could be drawing to a dose,
we at the alligatorSports Brand Picks
Column wanted to find a nice place for
him to go after his career as a coach is
over.
We called up Julie Lemer, lifestyle
enrichment director at HarborChase
of Tallahassee, an assisted living com-
munity, to size up the joint for Bowden.
"It's a retirement community for
seniors who need a little bit of assis-
tance with activities of daily life," said
Lerner, who has a nephew at UF. "We
have four levels of care, starting from
those who are pretty much completely
independent."
OK, this sounds good so far. But
would HarborChase cater specifically
to Bowden's needs?
"A lot of our residents are here be-
cause they have memory loss issues,"
she said. "They can't remember to take
their medicine, what time to eat a meal
or to do laundry, so we are there to be
reminders."
Bingo!
For a guy that once referred to FSU
backup quarterback Xavier Lee as "the
other guy" and often comments on
players by their numbers, not names,
memory is a chief concern.
Although, after seeing some of the
shellackings the Seminoles have taken
in the last few years, you can't blame
Bowden for wanting to forget some
things.

UF MEN'S BASKETBALL

Gators cruise Tuesday, prep for FSU clash


UF forward Nick Calathes breaks through coverage to shoot during the
Gators' 102-51 win against North Florida on Tuesday.


By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
dklein@alligator.org

With Friday's rivalry
matchup against Florida
State looming, the UF men's
basketball team prepared
with a warm-up game
Tuesday night.
In a lopsided contest from
start to finish, the No. 25
Gators (5-0) crushed North
Florida (1-3) 102-51, breaking
the 100-point mark for the
second time this season.
The Gators dominated all
aspects of the game. UF shot
53 percent from the field and
knocked down 13 3-pointers,
while only allowing two.
UF outrebounded the
Ospreys 48-31 in the contest
as well.
Center Marreese Speights
continued his strong early
season play, tallying 20
points and 12 rebounds in
only 16 minutes on the court.
"I was impressed with
Marreese tonight," Coach
Billy Donovan said. "He's
doing the things that we've
asked him to do. I think he's
attacking the glass more,
which is good to see."
Guards Nick Calathes and
Walter Hodge both added 14
points.
Donovan said he's pleased
with his young team so far,
especially when it comes to
their energy in games.
"I still can see a boyish en-
thusiasm with the way they
play the game," Donovan


said. "They're doing the right
things and playing together."
In Friday's upcoming
game, the Gators will face
. their most difficult test yet.
Donovan is fully aware of the
challenge.
"We know on Friday night
that they're (FSU) going to
play their best game of the
season," he said. "And I
don't think there's any doubt
that of the five teams we've
played, this is the most tal-
ented, the most athletic yet."
"We know on Friday
night that they're (FSU)
going to play their best
game of the season."
Billy Donovan
UF coach

The Gators are looking
to avenge last season's loss
to the Seminoles, when FSU
defeated then-No.4 UF 70-66
in Tallahassee.
Perhaps even more scar-
ring for the Gators is the im-
age of the FSUI student body
rushing the court following
the win.
Sophomore Dan Werner,
who played only nine min-
utes in last year's game, said
the atmosphere was the cra-
ziest he's ever seen.
"I think it was the first
place where I saw that you're
allowed to serve alcohol,"
Werner said. "They're nuts
up there. They play us tough

Holiday season draws thanks as football season closes


Christmas music is already playing on

I'd like to hit life's pause button and
point out to everyone that Christmas is

Thanksgiving is this Thursday.

Meyer: I am thankful that the crazy Taser
kid is no longer in the news. The name
"Meyer" should be associated with nothing


but excellence.
UF safety Tony Joiner: I am thankful
that for as long as I live, Gainesville towing
companies will steer clear of my car.
Superman: I am thankful that Pam and
Bob Tebow procreated because their son's
existence has taken a lot of the pressure off
me.
Tim Tebow: I am thankful that I will be
heading to New York in December to live
out my lifelong dream. Forget the Heisman

Rivalry sways in-state talent


* UF-FSU OUTCOME CRUCIAL
TO RECRUITING SUCCESS.

By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org-
When UF throttled Florida State
34 7 two years ago in the Swamp, UF
c -.ch Urban Meyer walked around
t ,2 locker room with his hands in his
tickets.
Meyer had to be careful because
whenever the Gators and Seminoles
o at it on the field, they do so on the
recruiting field as well.
"It seems like 46 years ago," said
Aeyer, recalling the atmosphere with
i recruiting class that included Tim
Febow and Percy Harvin. "I had to
walk around with my hands in my
pockets because people started trying
to commit, shake my hand at that mo-
ment. That was a program changer. It
brought in an '06 class that was very in-
strumental in helping us win a national
championship."
When No. 12 UF (8-3, 5-3
Southeastern Conference) squares off
against FSU (7-4, 4-4 Atlantic Coast
Conference) Saturday evening at 5 in
The Swamp, there will be much more
on the line than just in-state bragging
rights.
With both teams out of the title hunt
in their conferences, all that's left to
play for is rival supremacy and wager-
ing for the best bowl bid possible. The
recruiting implications also cannot be
overstated.


"Florida-Florida State, you're prob-
ably going to see the cream of the crop
in the country coming to watch the
game," defensive tackle Clint McMillan
said. "That's the deciding factor for a
lot of guys to come here or there."
While most recruits come to the
game to make a decision, Mike and
Maurkice Pouncey had already told
Meyer they were Gainesville-bound
last fall before 2006's showdown in
Tallahassee. With their minds already
set, the brothers did some recruiting of
their own with some of the still unde-
cided prep stars.
"We had already come to all the
home games for Florida, and that
crowd was so crazy," Maurkice said.
"Then we went to the Florida State
game, and this crowd ain't nothing
like the Gator Nation. We didn't finish
the whole game. ... We left early. Their
crowd doesn't even get into the game
really. It's kind of lazy."
It also helps a team's chances when
it has a Heisman candidate on its ros-
ter.
However, in typical Tebow fashion,
the quarterback doesn't put himself
above the team.
"I know that any time I can say
something to them and let them know
that this is the best place in the country
to come, I'm going to do that," Tebow
said.
For some, quick playing time can
supersede the rivalry as a deciding fac-
tor in choosing between the schools.
"I thought about it, but after some of
the stuff they told me, they got thrown
out the window as soon as they left the


house," UF senior Andre Caldwell said
of FSU. "(They told me) 'You probably
won't be playing 'till your third year
here.' I was pretty much done after I
heard that.'"
Once a recruit decides to commit
to either school, an automatic rivalry
is born.
"We don't like them," Caldwell
said of the Seminoles. "We hate them.
It don't matter if we're both 10-0 right
now. It's still going to be a heated
battle, and we're still going to hate each
other after the game."





Who: Florida State at UF
Kickoff: 5 p.m.
Where: The Swamp
Series: UF leads 30-19-2
Tickets: Sold out
Notes: UF has won the last
three meetings between the
two schools. ... Since 1990, the
team that rushed for more yards
has posted a 16-2-1 record. ...
UF has held FSU to less than 50
yards rushing in each of the last
three years. ... The game has
been decided by 7 points or few-
er in three of the last four years.


Youthful 'Noles still

hold experience edge

HOOPS, from page 19
every year, so I hear."
As the new-look Gators make their debut in the
heated rivalry, the young group will face an FSU
team-filled with new faces of its own. Gone from
the Seminoles is last year's leading scorer and cur-
rent Los Angeles Clippers player, Al Thornton.
.Like the Gators, the Seminoles also boast seven
freshmen on the team roster.
But unlike the Gators, FSU
returns four starters from last
.. year's game, namely seniors
Isaiah Swann and Jason Rich,
and juniors Toney Douglas and
Uche Echefu.
,- FSU has had a rough start to
I 7' .a the season. The Seminoles have
Calathes lost to Cleveland State and South
Florida so far.
"It's an all-new rivalry," Calathes said. "It's
new guys, it's a new challenge, so for us it's just
another game at this point."
Calathes said the matchup will be another test
for the young team, which he said is improving by
the game.
"We keep getting better, but we need to keep
playing together, keep doing the little things that
help us win," he said. "We know that every game
could be an upset with the way things are going in
college basketball these days. So we need to take it
one game at a time and keep moving forward."

Bubba's


WR has lasting impact at UF


By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
jmarina@alligator.org

A single pair of blue and silver Nike
shoes lie untouched in the comer of a
bonus room on the second story of a
Tampa home.
They rest on top of a Gators slot ma-
chine with remains of dirt and turf still
stuck in the cleats.
They belong to UF wide receiver
Andre Caldwell, who wore the shoes
in the 2003 Army All-American Bowl,
playing for the East team with future
Gators teammate Chris Leak.
Caldwell is nearly five years re-
moved from the game, but the phrases
he etched in permanent marker on the
shoes still hold true for the senior.
The right shoe reads "#1 AC The
Truth" on the outer side, and "Bubba"
on the inside. On the left shoe, #1
Untouchable" spreads across the outer
side while "AC The Truth" is featured
on the inside.
"I feel like I'm untouchable when
I'm on the field," Caldwell said
"Nobody can stop me. And I wrote
"the truth" just cause I'm the real deal
out there. Ain't no jokes or no gim-
micks. It's all business. This is what I
was born to do."

Bubba is bqrn
His birth certificate reads Andre
Jerome Caldwell, but thanks to lis
older brother, Reche, he will forever be
known as "Bubba."

her younger son was on the rotund
side until he turned 7.
Reche thought the name Bubba jut-
seemed to fit the persona of a chubby
child, so it stuck.
The notion that Caldwell would
enjoy a life rooted in sports seemed a-1
natural to his family as his nickname
He ran track and played both basket-
ball and baseball growing up before he
ultimately decided to focus on football
His talent and skill didn't remain a
secret for long.
Alex Medina, a childhood friend
'said he and Caldwell ate lunch togeth-
er every day in high school, and at the
start of their junior year the hype sur-
rounding Caldwell began to swell.
Representatives from UF, Miami
and Southern California would visit
Jefferson High just to eat lunch with
the pair.
"I always knew he was good, but
I never knew he would be as big as he
was," Medina said. "Bubba handled it
real well. He wanted to be like a regular
kid. He didn't take it to the head like
that."
When recruiters visited his home,
they always peeked at the trophy room
that now hosts Caldwell's shoes. At the
time, the room was filled with Reche's
accolades from his career at UF.
When Florida State coach Bobby
Bowden, and USC coach Pete Carroll
took one look at the Gator-filled room,
the same question inevitably popped
up.


"They'd say, 'Miss Deborah, do .
we really have a chance?'" Caldwell's
mother recalls.
Turns out they didn't, as the No. 1
receiver in the nation declared on ESPN
that he was headed to Gainesville.
Despite his early success in high
school, Caldwell remained a dreamer.
He created a list of goals his fresh-
man season and still adds to it every
year. After his 13-reception perfor-
mance against Florida Atlantic last
week, he can cross off UF's all-time re- f jr
ception leader, but a 1,000-yard season
and the Heisman Trophy still remain
unchecked.
"The dreams I write down are hard i .. "
to reach," Caldwell said. "I try to break
records not by a little bit, but by a lot. I
don't want to be just average. I want to
be a great player."

castle. I'm the king of this jungle here."


Tragedy and Triumph
For as much as Caldwell is respon-
sible for lifting his teammates' spirits,
he's had to work just as hard at keeping
his own intact.
His first test came during the
Gators' home victory against Tennessee

in 2005. Caldwell started out strong,
scoring UF's only touchdown on an
18-yard run in the first quarter.
Then came the start of the second
half, when he received the kickoff on
the goal line and returned it 21 yards
before Tennessee linebacker Ryan
Karl's helmet crashed into his right
thigh. The devastating hit shattered
Caldwell's femur and ended his junior
season.
His mother watched the hit on
television.
"I was freaking out. I just can't say
more," Deborah said. "The phone
started ringing. Reche was calling, and
he was like, 'Andre broke his leg.' My
husband started calling me, 'Bubba is
in a lot a lot of pain. It's not looking
good.'"
She decided to drive to Gainesville
and kept imagining her son lying in
the hospital bed with his leg hanging
in traction, just like she used to see in
the movies.
"I didn't want to see Andre like
that," she said. "But I kept telling my-
self, you got to be strong for yourself
and Andre. When I went in the there I
was hugging him. He was really quiet.
I said, 'You're going to overcome it.' He
was like, 'yeah, yeah, yeah.'"
But the hit broke Caldwell's heart
and will just as it had broken his bone.
"He withdrew himself from really
the program, from the football team,"
UF wide receivers coach Billy Gonzales
said. He lost about 20 pounds. He
looked like he was sick.
"He was part of a team. He was a
major player in the program, and next
thing you know, they're telling (him),
you might not ever play again."
Caldwell did everything the doctors
instructed him to do and entered the
2006 season with high expectations.
However, when he finally took the
field, he looked tentative, and Caldwell
said it wasn't until UF's 21-14 win
against Georgia on Oct. 28 that he re-
ally felt comfortable again.
He caught eight passes for a season-
high 88 yards and one touchdown in
the game. Prior, Caldwell had aver-
aged just three receptions for 30 yards
per game.


"I hadn't been hit in like a year,"'
Caldwell said. "It took a couple games
for me to get used to people diving at
my leg, trying to take them out. Going
into that game I was very confident."
Caldwell finished the season as UF's
second-leading receiver and ended it
with fireworks, scoring a touchdown in
the national championship game.
Many expected him to follow the
exodus of players who decided to enter
the NFL Draft early. Caldwell was pro-
jected to go in the third round, but that
just wouldn't satisfy him. So, after seek-
ing advice from Reche, who currently
plays for the Washington Redskins,'
Caldwell decided to return for one
more year of college football.
"The plan was coming out of high
school, do three years and get out of
this place," Caldwell said. "After being
here for all these years, it's like my sec-
ond home, and it's all I know right now.
I'm happy with the decision."
The Gators were happy to have him
back. With only 14 seniors returning,
Caldwell has played a crucial role as a,
major leader on the team.
Although he usually took a backseat
to vocal leaders like Dallas Baker and
Jemalle Cornelius, Caldwell knew it
was time to embrace his role.
At a team gathering at UF coach
Urban Meyer's home two weeks be-
fore this season started, he gave an un-
expected speech at Meyer's request.
"Bubba's not really one to be all that
vocal," linebacker Dustin Doe said.
"But when he gave that testimony, it
was kind of like he was free-styling ...
and by him doing that everybody was
on the same page. He was being real,
but he was being poetic at the same
time."
Caldwell asked for every one of his
teammates to jump on the bus with
him for his last year as a Gator.
"He's going to give everything he
has, and he wanted us to give every-
thing we had," Murphy said. "He's a
good leader, and we don't want to let
him down because he goes so hard."
Caldwell looked primed to have a
spectacular final season after his per-
formance in the season opener. He tal-
lied three receptions for 103 yards.

But then it happened again -
Caldwell sprained his knee in the sec-
ond game of the season against Troy.
When his family first saw him go
down, they held their breath fearing
the worst but exhaled when they saw
Caldwell walk off the field.
His parents returned to their home
relatively confident their son would be
fine. Then, the phone rang on Sunday.
"When we talked to Coach Gonzales
and Coach Meyer, you would have
thought they were going to a funeral,"
Deborah said.
He missed two weeks with the inju-
ry, started against Auburn but didn't
record a reception and caught one
pass during the LSU game the week
after. Still, he was determined to finish
the year stronger than ever.
"I planned to have a great year, and
to go down so early in the year, it was
devastating," Caldwell said. "But like
I told my momma, it's like a blessing
in disguise. It made me realize, when
I come back I got to be hungry and
sacrifice whatever I can to get better
everyday. And I'm doing that."
The past three games Caldwell has
churned out consecutive career-high
performances. He recorded more
than 100 yards each game and logged
his best game to date against Florida
Atlantic with 13 receptions for 164
yards.
For his last game in The Swamp,
Caldwell already has his perfect end-
ing planned out. It would include a
150-yard game topped off with his
final catch in the end zone, so he could
throw the ball into the orange and blue
crowd and really be remembered.
Whatever the outcome, Caldwell
will undoubtedly be remembered by
his teammates for the impact he has
had on their lives.
"That's a man that's willing to put
forth his career for this football team,
and that's all that's ever mattered to
him," Gonzales said. "So to see these
records come up tight here, right now
within his reach, it's fantastic for him.
But at the same time, he'd trade every-
thing in to continue to be a great leader
and a great role model for these young
kids." '






3, KICKOFF, ALLIGATOR S WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 21,2007


S0.


F RUN vs. FSU RUN DEFENSE
F rushes for 190.3 yards per game; FLORIDA STATE allows 99.5 yards per game.
EY PLAYERS: UF: So. QB Tim Tebow (181 attempts 749 yards, 4.1 avg, 20 TDs), So. WR Percy Harvin (54 att 442 yds, 8.2 avg, 4 TDs); FSU: Jr. LB Geno Hayes (71 tackles, 17.5 TFL), Jr. LB Derek Nicholson (81 tackles, 6 TFL).
NALYSIS: Tebow got stuffed by Florida Atlantic that's right, Florida Atlantic. Cameron Newton and Markus Manson actually had UF's two longest runs against the Owls. Running back Kestahn Moore continues to successfully walk the
ght rope for his starting job, rushing for two scores last week with Brandon James suspended. Harvin's return adds that tricky third element to the Gators' usually potent running attack.
ADVANTAGE: UF

LIF PASS vs. FSU PASS DEFENSE
UF passes for 264.5 yards per game; FLORIDA STATE allows 233.6 yards per game.
KEY PLAYERS: UF: So. QB Tim Tebow (2,870 yds, 26 TDs-6 INTs, 68.5 pct, 177.47 rating), Sr. WR Andre Caldwell (48 rec, 665 yds, 13.9 avg, 4 TDs), So. WR Percy Harvin (45 rec, 714 yds, 15.9 avg, 3 TDs); FSU: So. SS Myron Rolle
(54 tackles, 2 FR), So. CB Patrick Robinson (27 tackles, 6 INTs).
ANALYSIS: For the first time in weeks, UF may have its entire group of wide receivers healthy. Harvin (sinus infection) and Riley Cooper (broken finger) have been hampered recently, while Caldwell (sprained MCL) and Cornelius Ingram
(sprained ankle) overcame their injuries and posted solid numbers against Florida Atlantic. FSU has some great playmakers in its secondary In Rolle and Robinson and great experience in junior corner Tony Carter and senior free safety
Roger Williams. This will be a matchup to savor all day.
ADVANTAGE: UF

FSU RUN vs. UF RUN DEFENSE
FLORIDA STATE runs for 123.3 yards per game; UF allows 99.4 yards per game.
KEY PLAYERS: FSU: Jr. TB Antone Smith (171 att 657 yds, 3.8 avg, 3 TDs), So. WR Preston Parker (38 att 221 yds, 5.8 avg, 2 TDs); UF: So. LB Brandon Spikes (108 tackles, 11 TFL), So. LB Dustin Doe (72 tackles, 2 FR).
ANALYSIS: Smith missed last week's win against Maryland with a bruised shoulder, and his top two backups sat out, too. That left the do-everything sophomore Parker to switch from wide receiver to running back. Parker transitioned
smoothly, running for 133 yards. His performance has some in Tallahassee calling for a permanent switch, as Smith has been unimpressive and prone to injury this year. Smith should return this week, but it's anybody's guess as to how
many carries Parker will steal from him. Spikes ranks second in the Southeastern Conference in tackles five behind Kentucky linebacker Wesley Woodyard and seems destined to be a first-team All-SEC pick.
ADVANTAGE: UF

FSU PASS vs. UF PASS DEFENSE
FLORIDA STATE passes for 243.5 yards per game; UF allows 254.5 yards per game.
KEY PLAYERS: FSU: Jr. QB Drew Weatherford (1,585 yds, 8 TDs-1 INT,.59.7 pct, 127.27 rating), Jr. WR Greg Carr (38 rec, 688 yds, 18.1 avg, 3 TDs), Sr. WR De'Cody Fagg (44 rec, 657 yds, 14.9 avg, 5 TDs), So. WR Preston Parker (48
rec, 631 yds, 13.1 avg, 3 TDs); UF: Jr. DE Derrick Harvey (40 tackles, 6.5 sacks), Sr. SS Tony Joiner (53 tackles, 2 INTs).
ANALYSIS: Bobby Bowden has borrowed from Steve Spurrier, using a quarterback carousel the last few years. Right now, Weatherford is slotted ahead of Xavier Lee and Christian Ponder. Weatherford hasn't been half bad recently,
knocking off undefeated Boston College and beating Maryland in November. His group of receivers has the talent to rival UF's playmakers and beat the Gators' battered secondary, especially If Joe Haden sits out with a sprained ankle.
ADVANTAGE: FSU

SPECIAL TEAMS
KEY PLAYERS: UF: Jr. Kicker Joey Ijjas (9-12 FGs, long 43), Fr. Punter Chas Henry (32 punts, 38.9 avg, long 53); FSU: Sr. Kicker Gary Cismesia (23-29 FGs, long 50),
Jr. Punter Graham Gano (52 punts, 42.8 avg, long 64).
ANALYSIS: Cismesia and Gano are solid and experienced kickers, unlike Ijjas and Henry. UF missed Brandon James last week Jarred Fayson looked indecisive
Ray Garvin, ranks outside of the top 10D in Division-IA for average yards per return with 20.2 H I
ADVANTAGE: UF

INTANGIBLES:
This is one of the dullest UF-FSU matchups in recent memory. The teams aren't playing to warm up for conference title games or to see who goes to the Sugar Bowl
or Orange Bowl. Instead, FSU is looking at the possibility of a return trip to the Emerald Bowl, or, better yet, the Music City Bowl. UF has it a bit better off with the
Capital One and Outback bowls on the horizon, but it's still not satisfying. This game will be all about who is more motivated. The last time FSU entered The Swamp, a rn
Urban Meyer wiped the floor with Bowden in a 34-7 drubbing. The spoils of the win included a grab bag of recruiting commitments, including Payson and James. The n -
Gators only have 10 commitments so far this year versus 19 for the Seminoles. Maybe that's an omen. p

Wr WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2007 LOCAL UF students leave local jail By DEVIN CULCLASURE Alligator Writer dculciasure@alligator.org Two UF students arrested at an appearance by former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales on Monday night were released from the Alachua County Jail on Tuesday afternoon. Donning orange jumpsuits and black hoods, Richard Gutierrez and Kevin Hachey climbed on stage about 15 minutes into Gonzales' address at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. University Police Department officers then led the students away without a struggle and arrested them for disrupting a public event. UPD Lt. Stacy Ettel said the students were cooperative after police apGonzales proached them. sI think there was a point made, and that point was well-received, at least by those who wanted to hear it," Ettel said. After being processed at the UPD station, Gutierrez and Hachey were taken to the Alachua County Jail, which is managed by the Alachua County Sheriff's Office. The students were booked around 11 p.m. and then changed into inmate jumpsuits. They were fingerprinted, photographed and put up in a holding cell.

Students advised to use caution for holiday travel 0 THE WEEK'S RISKIEST TRAVEL TIME IS FROM NOON TO :1 P.M. TODAY. By HILARY LEHMAN Alligator Writer hIehman@alligator.org With 26 student deaths since January, including several caused by traffic accidents, law enforcement officials are advising students to be careful on the roads this weekend. Officials said students should take precautions for their safety, such as wearing seat belts, reducing driving distractions and avoiding dangerous traffic situations because of the extra traffic from Thanksgiving and the football game. Lt. Mike Burroughs, Florida Highway Patrol spokesman for the Gainesville area, said the most dangerous and congested travel time is from noon to 11 p'.m. today. "For those travelers who are going to be traveling out of town, if they could delay their trip to start early Thursday morning, they would find a much safer trip and much less congested roadways," he said. Officer Darin Gentry of the University Police Department said students should also avoid waiting until the last minute to return to Gainesville for the same reasons. Burroughs said the main interstates are usually the most dangerous for driving during the holiday weekend. However, the busy shopping weekend and the big football game make any roads dangerous, he said. Taking obvious precautions like wearing seat belts, driving sober and avoiding text messages and other distractions are essential to student safety, he said. Burroughs said adding Around distracted, fatigued drivers GainOSVIle to the heavy congestion of the roadways makes for a "deadly situation." Gentry echoed the importance of students staying alert while driving by getting enough sleep and avoiding alcohol. He said with the football game this weekend, students need to watch out for other people driving.drunk. Drivers should be especially careful between 10 p.m. and 3 a.m., which is the most common time for alcohol-related accidents, he said. FHP encourages drivers to call the 511 system if they are stuck in gridlock on the road. The system gives live updates on road blockages and alternate routes. Burroughs said with the high number of law enforcement officers patrolling the roadways this weekend, it is important for students to be aware of the Move Over Act. When drivers see an officer on the side of the road, they need to slow down to 20 mph below the speed limit on a two-lane road or move to the lane farther from the roadside if driving on the interstate.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2007 0 ALLIGATOR, 3 HEALTH Be wary of turkey binges By LANE NIESET Alligator Contributing Writer With temptations of pumpkin pie, gingerbread, turkey with gravy and more, it's easy to make bad decisions when eating during the holidays. Students often make poor choices because they do not know what the right choices are, said Susan Jeck, a nutritionist and owner of B-Fit Body Boutique in Jupiter. "Alot of people think that Thanksgiving means to stuff yourself," she said, "but that is not a good idea." Jeck said to focus on vegetables as much as possible, limit desserts and sugar intake and be careful to eat items in moderation. Liz Lagasse, a registered dietitian for GatorWell, said eating balanced meals and stopping when feeling full help control overeating and increase enjoyment of food. But Dominique Richardson, a UF freshman, said she usually watches what she eats and feels Thanksgiving is the only day she can splurge by eating the foods she wants. "it doesn't have to be a huge feast." Susan Jeck nutritionist Richardson looks at Thanksgiving as the one day to ease up on dieting and enjoy food with her family, she said. Jeck agrees but said it's important to keep self-control. "Look at Thanksgiving as a nice meal," Jeck said. "It doesn't have to be a huge feast." Blood supply set to dip By OLEE FOWLER Alligator Contributing Writer While students return to their homes for holiday festivities and companionship, the LifeSouth Community Blood Centers remain lonely places. With the exodus of the student population, so goes nearly 30 percent of blood donations LifeSouth receives in Gainesville, said Christine Evans, LifeSouth donor services manager. "It starts right around Thanksgiving because people are focused on other things," she said. "Everyone is thinking about their holiday plans, and people just aren't thinking about the blood supply." To prepare for a dip in the blood supply, LifeSouth plans events strategically to coincide with times when blood supplies are lowest. The Greek Blood Drive is held twice a year. The fall semester drive, which ended last week, used to be held in mid-October but was delayed to be Around closer to the holidays, Gainesville Evans said. LifeSouth also works with local media and radio stations to advertise the shortage in the blood supply. Blood donor stations are moved to different locations, and LifeSouth has promotions with local companies to increase awareness. "The coupons and cookies are a definite plus for donors," Evans said.

4, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2007 ON CAMPUS Mystery man may have smashed lion The lion statue at the Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity house stands headless after being vandalized Monday night. By KIM WILMATH Alligator Staff Writer kwilmath@alligator.org Twenty-five years ago, a nowinfamous man named Edgar was left with a naked scalp, vowing to get revenge. On Sunday morning, members of UF's chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity discovered the face of their lion statue smashed, a sin they suspect Edgar of committing, said Sam Warfield, president of Sigma Alpha Epsilon. In 1982, repainting the lion statue outside the house at 2 Fraternity Row was punishable by razor, Warfield said. He said Edgar -a man with no known last name -and his girlfriend sullied the stone cat anyway, and members of dthe fraternity shaved the offenders' heads against their will. The members probably tied them down to complete the trim, Warfield said. Edgar was not a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon, known as SAE, Warfield added. The fraternity planned on taking its Christmas picture in front of the lion. However, Warfield said it would have to wait until the head is repaired. He said several SAE alumni have told the present chapter they've seen Edgar around UF's campus recently. The alumni also said to watch out for him. "It's always been a folklore rumor," Warfield said. "And I've seen stranger things be true than that." Group works to keep homeless warm during winter I BLANKETS HAVE BEEN COLLECTED. By APRIL DUDASH Alligator Writer With wintry weather around the corner, blankets were collected this month for the Gainesville homeless population. The Alachua County Coalition for the Homeless and Hungry collected about 100 blankets since Oct. 23, said Jim Wright, executive director for the coalition. Some of those were collected at the "Homeless Night Out and Service Fair" on Nov. 7. About 40 of those blankets came from Congregation B'nai Israel last week. "We need as many sleeping bags and blankets as there are unshelAround tered homeless people in GalneSVjj Gainesville," Wright said. The January 2007 count of unsheltered homeless was 395. "I feel disappointed in our efforts to give blankets," he said. The coalition will try to get more sleeping bags next year because they keep people the warmest, he said. Wright said people can still donate to the Alachua County Housing Authority at 703 NE First St. "We're always excited when people give us donations, and of course winter still has along way to go," he said.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, 5 UPD learned lesson from Tasergate With one day before break, we have a lot to be thankful for. But with Monday's speech, one thing that is fairly low-key tops my list. Thank goodness we didn't have a worse incident at former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales' speech. There were more protesters. They caused a ruckus. A sense of impending catastrophe was in the air. Sound familiar? Except this time, the ending was different. No Tasers, no iconic quotes and no committees on the lawful use of police force. Other circumstances made the officers' handling of the scenario even more remarkable. The speaker Vincent Gagliano Ietters@aiIigator.org was not a presidential candidate but a government official disgraced for his disputed firing of U.S. attorneys. The potential for trouble was greater given what he did in office. It seems the University Police Department has learned from its mistakes. The massive outcry against Tasergate prompted campus security to rethink how it uses force to restrain combative people. Hopefully, UPD will keep its new mindset in the years to come don't blame police for not listening to angry students. One of the most common complaints from the Kerry forum was the way UPD restrained Andrew Meyer. Many people wondered, "Why couldn't they just subdue him and remove him from the room? They didn't really need to Taser him." That's precisely what UPD did when Richard Gutierrez and Kevin Hachey ascended the stage. Even the protesters were better behaved the second time around. Sure, they were unhappy with some of the things Gonzales did in office, but they were more civil in expressing their message. Among the group, there was a noticeable lack of vulgar language. Most complied with the officers throughout the event. UPI knew what most of the protesters had planned and avoided SEE GAGLIANO, PAGE 7 viewpoints ALLIGATOR www.aIIigator.org/opinions Things to be thankful for at UF this holiday h, Thanksgiving. I'm thankful for the holiday you can't screw up. There's no eed to fret about finding the perfect gift for your mom or someone hot to kiss at midnight. It's socially acceptable to eat so much pie that you can't get up from the table. Here's what I'm thankful this year: 1. Billy Donovan's morning-after regret about getting in bed with the Orlando Magic. He's atoned for his indiscretion by leading our mostly freshman team back into the Top 25. 2. The powers that be have officially recognized UP's status as Top Dog. I'm talking about CollegeHumor.com's No. 2 nod and Playboy featuring girls from Florida in its "Girls of the SEC" issue in September. One of the girls lives near my boyfriend -he's definitely grateful. Leigh Shapiro 3. Prices around Editorial Notebook campus are still low for tuition, football tickets, presidential salaries oops, maybe scratch that last one. 4. Accent. This semester's lineup of notable speakers, which Accent chairman Steven Blank called "electrifying," has certainly engaged the campus in widespread debate. I can only hope next semester will be as exciting. 5. Gainesville liberals. Through student and resident activism, more voices than ever are telling the UF administration how they feel about issues including police brutality and graduatestudent rights. Some individuals will always cross the line of decorum, but it's better to err on the side of more communication than less. 6. Library hours that will be extended even longer than they were last exam season. Maybe if we pack Library West during the first two weeks in December, Student Government could make a case for keeping some libraries in business late at night on a regular basis. If the gym is open late on certain days, then popular libraries should be, too. 7. Tim Tebow. Period. 8. The fact that all of my classes are canceled today. Unlike the few poor souls stuck on campus reading this, I'm home, feeling guilt-free about skipping classes, and making and eating pies. Maybe next year UF will allow all students to do the same. Leigh Shapiro is a junior majoring in economics. She is a member of the editorial board. We tackle the issue of how the presidential races are going on both sides of the game. Will Hillary best Obama? Will Huckabee ever make it to the White House with that ridiculus name? Check out our special Wednesday edition of Darts & Laurels on Page 6. We wanted to call it "Brussel Sprouts & Pumpkin Pies," but that was just too damn long. Comment Corner: Alberto Gonzales' speech As one of the protesters, I'd like to point out that any sign-holding, hoodwearing, or back-turning was done in complete silence. It was the rest of the crowd who heckled the hell out of that fascist and make a ruckus during our brief demonstrations. -yay Get used to it, Alberto Gonzales. Your new career as a laughingstock and an embarrassment is only beginning. -Kelvin

6, ALLIGATOR S WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 21,2007 Editorial We're starving. The thought of eating another meal out of a box, bag or can is enough to make out stomachs turn. So we're holding out for the gluttonous pleasure that is epitomized in the Thanksgiving meal. And the rest of the world wonders why we're such a fat country. We blame it solely on the pilgrims. But as for our personal hunger strike, we hope to lose a few pounds from dehydration and muscle atrophy before we gain three times of it back from gorging ourselves this weekend. But as we count down the minutes until our Thanksgiving feast, we can't seem to get our minds off of food -and we don't know why. So if you're still in town dreaming of your own dinner, try not to drool on this week's saltycreamy-crunchy-sweet-savory-saucy-spicy-tender edition of. Darts & Laurels It's been a short week, but that doesn't mean we don't have plenty of stuff to praise or complain about. We love complaining almost as much as we love pie. On that note, we throw a we-hope-you-find-lumps-in-your-mashed-potatoes DART to the University of Georgia Bulldogs for ruining the Gators' hopes ofgoing to the Southeastern Conference title game not once, but twice this season. We're not bitter or anything, but a team that rushed the endzone after a first-quarter touchdownbecause their coach told them to -and laughed on the sideline as it happened -does not have any class and does not deserve to be a contender for the SEC championship. Hopefully Tennessee will pull through so we don't have to worry about seeing 'another display of poor sportsinanship in Atlanta next weekend. Up next, we give a now-that's-the-whipped-creamon-the-pumpkin-pie LAUREL to UF's No. 2 ranking by CollegeHumor.com. Thanks to our wealth of cute co-eds and our giant stadium, among other, factors, UF is the second-best place to attend college. We're not biased or anything, but we don't think Pennsylvania State University the No. 1 college, holds a candle to our fair campus. Come on. It's much easier to be cute in a miniskirt and a tank top than in a parka, ski cap, mittens and long underwear. And now we have a who's-the-bigger-turkey, you-orthe-one-in-the-oven? DART to Alberto Gonzales, the former U.S. attorney general who Accent brought to speak Monday night. We darted him last week for some of his requests to Accent (which the organization denied), but now we dart him for what he's done. Condoning torture in violation of the Geneva Conventions and firing nine U.S. attorneys for reasons he cannot remember are what most of the speech's attendees probably wanted to hear him speak about, but instead he spoke about living the American Dream. Yeah, we've never heard that one before. Accent brought Gonzales to stir up controversy, and that he did. We've got a no-pie-for-you DART for the protesters who decided to cause enough of a scene to get themselves arrested by taking to the stage in the middle of the speech. But not all the protesters were out of line, so we give them an extra-slice-of-pie LAUREL for being respectful while making their point. We love animals, so of course we've got to give a he'dpardon-more-turkeys-than-any-president LAUREL to Jack Hanna, the world-famous zookeeper and wildlife conservationist. He spoke Tuesday in Gainesville and recorded an episode of his show "Jack Hanna's Animal Adventures" at the SFCC Teaching Zoo. Most of us probably grew up watching Hanna and his menagerie, so it's an honor that he'd come to Gainesville. We have to mention this week's football game before we pass out from a loss of nutrients, so we give a we-hearSeminole-tastes-great LAUREL to the great matchup we anticipate in The Swamp this weekend. We know you want to watch the game, so stay safe this weekend on the roads. tie dependent florida aliao Lyndsey Lewis EDITOR Adam Berry MANAGING EDITOR Jessica Holland OPINIONS EDITOR Jessica Miller Leigh Shapiro EDITORIAL BOARD Tie Alligator encourage comments trim readers.

"But wait," you ask, "aren't whales protected by the International Whaling Commission, which Japan is a member of? And what about the moratorium in the South Pacific that's been in place since 1963?" Well, it seems that Japan is more interested in continuing cultural "traditions" (more on that later) than protecting the many whale species that inhabit the Earth's oceans. On Monday, a Japanese fleet set out on the country's largest whaling expedition ever, hoping to bag nearly 1,000 mike whales, 50 fin whales and, perhaps most horrifying of all, up to 50 humpback whales. As the ship embarked, "Popeye the Sailor Man" played over speakers, and the ship's crew toasted the occasion with beer. The day before, Japanese officials had encouraged their fellow countrymen to continue the whale-eating culture, according to an article from The Associated Press. Personal confession time: I am a ceteceaphile, a bona fide whale lover. The thought of whales being harpooned chokes me up. Sea World saddens me. "Free Willy" still makes me cry, as Michael Jackson's "Will You Be There" blasts through the TV speakers and Jesse's hand reaches for his friend (even though Willy, as an orca, is not a true whale, but a member of the dolphin family). But back to real life and the real-life problem. The International Whaling Commission bans commercial whaling, but it allows hunting of whales for scientific purposes. This is the guise Japan is using to justify its massive hunt. Japan's Fisheries Agency says it wants to study the whales' reproductive and feeding habits, but just about everyone has recognized the Japanese plan to sell the whales for food. Wouldn't it make more sense to study reproductive and feeding patterns on living whales, which, as a matter of fact, reproduce and eat? But hey, that's just my opinion, I'm no scientist. But I'm also not going to be eating whale any time soon, which brings us back to Japan's cultural tradition. I recognize the Japanese have been enjoying whale dishes for centuries. I Jessica Holland jholland@alligator.org won't argue the ethics of it, but I will argue with the method. Whales used to be caught with nets and spears. It took an entire village worth of men to haul the catch back to shore. The whale had to be gutted by hand. It was indeed a huge ordeal. There's no doubt this kind of whaling would have been sustainable and could shape cultural traditions. But that's not how it is anymore. I won't disgust you with too much exposition about how whales are handled after their slaughter nowadays, but the harpoon and huge whaling ships have completely changed the shape of whaling and the "tradition" surrounding it. I will say, however, that the harpoons used in commercial whaling have to be long enough to penetrate through the whale's layers of blubber. Some harpoons are equipped with bombs on the heads. Often, the first shot isn't enough to kill the marine mammal. And you thought getting your flu shot hurt. Probably the best defense the whales have is the environmental group Greenpeace, which has sent out its protest ship Esperanza in search of the Japanese ships to try to disrupt their hunt. There are no "whale farms" where Japan can raise whales for consumption like we do with cows and chickens. Since so many species are slow-moving, it is nearly impossible for them to defend themselves. Some whales may be heartier than others, but not many have the tenacity of Moby Dick. And it's even easier for the Captain Ahabs to track them down, thanks to sonar technology. The whales are then brought back to the mainland and sold off to restaurants and individual customers. Whale meat is sometimes served in school cafeterias, despite its high levels of mercury -unhealthy for growing kids. Japan should end its whaling practices once and for all. Whaling populations are only beginning to recover from pre-commercial whaling levels. Does Japan want to bring the gentle giants back to the brink of extinction?

Controversy aside, he is a great American success story and deserved better than what UF showed him. On behalf of Gators with common sense and courtesy, I would like to apologize to Mr. Gonzales.

8, ALLIGATOR 0 WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 21,2007 Student remains in critical condition By APRIL DUDASH Alligator Writer After hearing the news of Ashley Ann Groves' accident Monday afternoon, about 100 of her friends arrived at Shands at UF and prayed downstairs. Since then, friends have been filing in and out of the hospital. Groves' family has stayed at her side. Groves, a 19-year-old sophomore, was listed in critical condition Monday after her scooter struck a gray Acura TL near Southwest Second Avenue. GainesvillePoliceDepartment Lt. Will Halvosa said the investigation is ongoing, and toxicology reports for everyone involved are pending. No charges have been filed, but that may change depending on Groves' condition, Halvosa said. A Shands spokeswoman said Tuesday evening Groves was still in critical condition. Carly Sewell, a UF elementary education freshman, has been close friends with Groves since the ninth grade. Sewell had already gone home for Thanksgiving but traveled back to Gainesville after hearing about the accident "You never think it's going to happen to somebody you know," Sewell said. Groves' mother was in her room for a few minutes before her leg surgery and sang to her, Sewell said. "She opened her eyes a little bit for her mom," she said. Torie Fake, Local 22, met Groves NewS at church in Groveland. Their parents are best friends. "She's like a sister to me," Fake said. When she heard of the accident, Fake said she was in shock. Sewell said members of the UF Fellowship of Christian Athletes formed prayer groups at the hospital yesterday and cooked Groves' parents a meal. "We just love her, and we're ready for her to be back to normal," Sewell said. "It's going to be a long recovery." Groves' birthday is on Saturday. She willbe turning 20. "I really honestly think she's going to come through this," Fake said. "She's a fighter. That's what all of her friends and everyone are saying." STUDENT LIFE Heading home can be difficult By LINDSAY SMITH Alligator Contributing Writer While many students are excited about packing up to go home and visit their families over Thanksgiving break, some aren't too happy about an extended stay at home. "My family is pretty quirky," said journalism major Elaine Wilson. "My mom's side of the family is very Irish, and they consume a lot of alcohol." When she was younger, Wilson would become increasingly uncomfortable around her family during the holidays, but now she's used to it. "I go home because I want to," she said. "I wouldn't want to be anywhere else than with my mom and dad." But John Scanzoni, a professor of sociology at UF who specializes in sociology of the family, said such warm sentiments aren't always the case around the holiday season. -"It depends how families feel about each other," he said. "The thing that binds kin together is obligation -it isn't always because they like each other, much less love one another." The atmosphere around the holidays can be "cool but collected, emotionally not warm" for some families, he said. "When people get together, they don't say what's on their minds or in their hearts," Scanzoni said. But, that's not necessarily a bad thing, he added. Often, students in college are more liberal than their parents, who may feel that the "university has corrupted" their sons and daughters. "The key to keeping the peace is common sense: If you are willing to tolerate stupid comments and superficial conversation, everything will be all right," Scanzoni said. "You won't be emotionally hurt, just disappointed. Just say nothing that matters -talk about the weather." "My family is pretty quirky." Elaine Wilson journalism student For Caroline Lewis, an English major, arguments with her family occur every time she goes home for the holidays. "It's always little squabbles over stupid things, but it always happens," she said. "We can't even spend five minutes together before we're fighting again. Two seconds later, we'ye made up, but the pattern just repeats itself." But despite the "constant bickering about anything and everything," family still comes first for Lewis, especially for Thanksgiving. "It's just comfortable being home with people that you love," she said.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2007 0 ALLIGATOR, 9 UF, FSU get greener By KIM WILMATH Alligator Staff Writer kwilmath@alligator.org Turfgrass footprints are easy to patch up. A carbon footprint -damage done to the atmosphere that results in global warming -isn't so simple. UF and Florida State University officials have found a way to counteract the damaging emissions caused by the football game Saturday, a UF press release states. The release says UF would be the first university in the nation to attempt the neutralization. Along with the Florida Forestry Association and Environmental Defense, UF has arranged for about 18 acres of rural North Florida land to be managed as a pine plantation forest for 10 years. The land is part of 100 acres set aside by Jim and Winston Bailey, two North Florida UF supporters. The rest might be used for future carbon offsetting projects. Environmental Defense, an environmental protection group, will pay the Baileys to manage the trees. Dedee DeLongpr6Johnston, director of UF's Office of Sustainability, will head the project. DeLongpre-Jobnston said in the release that with the expected attendance of 88,000 fans, Saturday's UF-FSU game would generate more than 1,750 metric tons of carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide comes from burning fossil fuels in power plants and vehicles, which is the main human contributor to global warming. Trees take in carbon dioxide and release Local oxygen as part of their normal News growth. "The faster a tree grows, the more carbon dioxide it removes," stated Jeff Doran, executive vice president of the Florida Forestry Association, in the release. "Since Florida's climate provides optimal growing conditions, our forests can be very efficient scrubbers of greenhouse gases." Eighteen acres of managed forest, which would fill about 14 football fields, would almost absorb the carbon released during the football game. Sources of Saturday's expected carbon outflow include car emissions, lighting and operating the stadium and lodging for the traveling fans.

10, ALLIGATOR N WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 21,2007 ON THE WEB Former students' info leaked on Web site By DEVIN CULCLASURE Alligator Writer dculclasure@alligator.org More than 400 former UF students might have been put at risk for identity theft after their Social Security numbers were posted on UF's Computing & Networking Services Web site. A news release from the Liberty Coalition, a group that works to preserve the privacy of individuals, said 14 files on the Web site contained "sensitive information" of 534 former UF students, including 415 Social Security numbers. All the individuals were former students of Richard Einicki, a professor of information systems and operations management, and had taken classes ISM 4220 or ISM 4330 with him between 1998 and 2001, the release stated. Many of the files had been online since 1998. The release stated that the files were on a Computer & Networking Services server that required a password to upload files, though the public could download the files without a password. The files were immediately removed by UF offic ials, who also worked with major search engines to dear their caches of the information, the release stated. Steve Orlando, UF spokesman, said UF's investigation showed the numbers were posted in Elnicki's gradebook before UFID numbers. Orlando Those who suspect their Social Security numbers were posted can search their names on the Web site www.ssnbreach.org, Orlando said. Only about 350 numbers were posted, and the Computing & Networking Services Web site's logs indicated nobody had accessed the information in five years, he said. UF is trying to find how the numbers ended up online and also reach those who might have been affected, he said. New group aims to help kids By ILEANA MORALES Alligator Writer imorales@alligator.org Alisha Wainwright, a UF sophomore, said she is hoping to bring creative learning, fun and a break from curriculums geared toward FCAT to elementary school students in Gainesville. Wainwright is president of Students Working For Educational Equality Today, known as S.W.E.E.T. The new organization's constitution was approved Sunday by Student Senate's Judiciary Committee. Student organizations are not official until their constitutions are approved. S.W.E.E.T. is affiliated with Teach for America and intended to get undergraduate students involved with increasing awareness of educational inequality. Wainwright said S.W.E.E.T. plans to start an after-school tutoring program in the spring; Her experience working with children started as a counselor for Young At Art Children's Museum in Davie, Fla., where she learned how to bring a "fun, free aspect" to teaching. "It's great to see the progression of kids who don't want to learn anything to then know names of art and give an upper-level analysis," she said. Wainwright said she wants to offer students "confined to a desk learning FCAT" a little more. Leah Dietterle, Teach For America campus campaign student coordinator and S.W.E.E.T. external affairs chair, said she expects more organizations like S.W.E.E.T. will pop up atother universities. "The needs of Gainesville schools are not unique to Gainesville," Dietterle said. She said she hopes students from all majors will see they don't have to be education majors to make a difference in education. "You 'see kids run around on dilapidated old playgrounds with overgrown weeds, and they deserve more than that," Dietterle said.

18, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2007 FLOOR, from page 19 touch keyboard in FAO Schwarz. UF free safety Major Wright: I am thankful that I am free of that taped-up boxing glove -a clubbed hand is no way to attract the ladies. UF wide receiver David Nelson: I am thankful that there's a possibility the Gators will be playing in the Capital One Bowl. I hear Tiger Woods has a house in Orlando, so maybe my deceiving looks will get me into the VIP section of Club Paris. UF tight end Tate Casey: I am thankful football season is almost over. I'm starting to develop carpal tunnel syndrome from tying half the team's neckties every game day. Florida State football coach Bobby Bowden: I am thankful my senility will prevent me from realizing that the Seminoles are being blown out Saturday, yet again. UF twin linemen Mike and Matirkice Pouncey: We're thankful that for one day out of the year, there's enough food on the table to feed us both, so we don't have to elbow-smash each other for the last turkey leg. And now, in the true spirit of Thanksgiving, a sincere message of gratitude. The entire Gators football team: We're thankful to have Percy Harvin back. PICKS, from page 19 When Bowden does leave FSU, it will definitely be an emotional separation. It goes without saying that the patriarch of Seminoles football will still have some connection to the program. Luckily, all the garnet-and-geld action can be caught in the common room at HarborChase on Saturdays, so Bowden won't miss a thing. Actually, he might be just as involved in the game as a TV viewer as he is now on the sideline. "My activities assistantis a big Florida State fan, so she leads them in the Indian War Chant thing with the arm hatchet-chop, whatever you call that thing," Lemer said. Without a doubt, all the amenities and services of HarborChase would suit Bowden just fine, and his wife can join him in a plush, one bedroom apartment reserved for couples. There is one last thing though. The home would have to be able to accommodate Bowden's celebrity status. "My assistant said (Bowden) would be a real ringleader around here," Lerner said. "He'd be involved in all of the activities and heading them up. "He'd probably like it here. It's a pretty happening place, I have to say." It's settled then. Bowden to HarborChase. Now, onto the picks! Leading off with a record of 65-45 is Bryan "absentee-sports editor-in-chief" Jones, who involuntarily worked from the road Tuesday evening, giving his thanks at 80 mph down 1-95. Nice try, buddy. Not far behind at 64-46 is alligatorSports.org editor Brian, "Why drive in one lane, when you can use both?" Steele, who hopes his podcasting skills will one day land him a job at Lincoln Financial Sports. Lagging in third at 60-50 is Mike "David Garrard may only score touchdowns on Sundays, but he can score on me any day of the week" McCall, who, like any diehard Eastem Carolina fan, roots for North Carolina in basketball. Go figure. With a record of 59-51 and fulfilling her womanly duties i a cleanup role is assistant sports editor Jenna "Everytime Dan Weiner scores a basket, an angel gets its wings" Marina, who decided to learn Spanish when she discovered she would be headed to Columbia for the South Carolina game. And in dead-ass last place with a piss-poor record of 56-54 is Nick "Unless they bring "Prison Break" back, I'll be making my own writer's strike official" Zaccardi, who, like Marion Jones, will not be attending the Olympics in Beijing this year.

To others, he's senile. He's the winningest coach in Division I-A history and just a dadgum nice guy. Florida State coach Bobby Bowden is no doubt one of the faces of college football, but in his 32nd season in Tallahassee, he's enduring as much criticism as ever. The 78-year-old Bowden is thought to be out of touch with his team and sometimes with reality, Since it looks like his tenure with the Seminoles could be drawing to a dose, we at the alligatorSports Brand Picks Column wanted to find a nice place for him to go after his career as a coach is over. We called up Julie Lerner, lifestyle enrichment director at HarborChase of Tallahassee, an assisted living community, to size up the joint for Bowden. "It's a retirement community for seniors who need a little bit of assistance with activities of daily life," said Lemer, who has a nephew at UF "We have four levels of care, starting from those who are pretty much completely independent." OK, this sounds good so far. But would HarborChase cater specifically to Bowden's needs? "A lot of our residents are here because they have memory loss issues," she said. "They can't remember to take their medicine, what time to eat a meal or to do laundry, so we are there to be reminders." Bingo! For a guy that once referred to FSU backup quarterback Xavier Lee as "the other guy" and often comments on players by their numbers, not names, memory is a chief concern. Although, after seeing some of the shellackings the Seminoles have taken in the last few years, you can't blame Bowden for wanting to forget some things.

By DANNY KLEIN Alligator Staff Writer dklein@alligator.org With Friday's rivalry matchup against Florida State looming, the UF men's basketball team prepared with a warm-up game Tuesday night. In a lopsided contest from start to finish, the No. 25 Gators (5-0) crushed North Florida (1-3) 102-51, breaking the 100-point mark for the second time this season. The Gators dominated all aspects of the game. UF shot 53 percent from the field and knocked down 13 3-pointers, while only allowing two. UF outrebounded the Ospreys 48-31 in the contest as well. Center Marreese Speights continued his strong early season play, tallying 20 points and 12 rebounds in only 16 minutes on the court. "I was impressed with Marreese tonight," Coach Billy Donovan said. "He's doing the things that we've asked him to do. I think he's attacking the glass more, which is good to see." Guards Nick Calathes and Walter Hodge both added 14 points. Donovan said he's pleased with his young team so far, especially when it comes to their energy in games. "I still can see a boyish enthusiasm with the way they play the game," Donovan said. "They're doing the right things and playing together." In Friday's upcoming game, the Gators will face their most difficult test yet. Donovan is fully aware of the challenge. "We know on Friday night that they're (FSU) going to play their best game of the season," he said. "And I don't think there's any doubt that of the five teams we've played, this is the most talented, the most athletic yet." "We know on Friday night that they're (FSU) going to play their best game of the Season." Billy Donovan UF coach The Gators are looking to avenge last season's loss to the Seminoles, when FSU defeated then-No.4 UF 70-66 in Tallahassee. Perhaps even more scarring for the Gators is the image of the FSU student body rushing the court following the win. Sophomore Dan Weirner, who played only nine minutes in last year's game, said the atmosphere was the craziest he's ever seen. "I think it was the first place where I saw that you're allowed to serve alcohol," Werner said. "They're nuts up there.

20, ALLIGATOR E WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 21,2007 Rivalry sways in-state talent N UF-FSU OUTCOME CRUCIAL TO RECRUITING SUCCESS. By BRIAN STEELE Alligator Staff Writer bsteele@aligator.org When UF throttled Florida State 34 7 two years ago in the Swamp, UF c( :ch Urban Meyer walked around f .locker room with his hands in his .)ckets. Meyer had to be careful because henever the Gators and Seminoles o at it on the field, they do so on the cruiting field as well. "It seems like 46 years ago," said Aeyer, recalling the atmosphere with i recruiting class that included Tim [ebow and Percy Harvin. "I had to walk around with my hands in my pockets because people started trying to commit, shake my hand at that moment. That was a program changer. It brought in an'06 class that was very instrumental in helping us win a national championship." When No. 12 UF (8-3, 5-3 Southeastern Conference) squares off against FSU (7-4, 4-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) Saturday evening at 5 in The Swamp, there will be much more on the line than just in-state bragging rights. Withboth teams out of the title hunt in their conferences, all that's left to play for is rival supremacy and wagering for the best bowl bid possible. The recruiting implications also cannot be overstated. "Florida-Florida State, you're probably going to see the cream of the crop in the country coming to watch the game," defensive tackle Clint McMillan said. "That's the deciding factor for a lot of guys to come here or there." While most recruits come to the game to make a decision, Mike and Maurkice Pouncey had already told Meyer they were Gainesville-bound last fall before 2006's showdown in Tallahassee. With their minds already set, the brothers did some recruiting of their own with some of the still undecided prep stars. "We had already come to all the home games for Florida, and that crowd was so crazy," Maurkice said. "Then we went to the Florida State game, and this crowd ain't nothing like the Gator Nation. We didn't finish the whole game. .We left early. Their crowd doesn't even get into the game really. It's kind of lazy." It also helps a team's chances when it has a Heisman candidate on its roster. However, in typical Tebow fashion, the quarterback doesn't put himse above the team. "I know that any time I can say something to them and let them know that this is the best place in the country to come, I'm going to do that," Tebow said. For some, quick playing time can supersede the rivalry as a deciding factor in choosing between the schools. "I thought about it, but after some of the stuff they told me, they got thrown out the window as soon as they left the house," UF senior Andre Caldwell said of FSU. "(They told me) 'You probably won't be playing 'till your third year here.' I was pretty much done after I heard that.'" Once a recruit decides to commit to either school, an automatic rivalry is born. "We don't like them," Caldwell said of the Seminoles. "We hate them. It don't matter if we're both 10-0 right now. It's still going to be a heated battle, and we're still going to hate each other after the game."

As the new-look Gators make their debut in the heated rivalry, the young group will face an FSU team filled with new faces of its own. Gone from the Seminoles is last year's leading scorer and current Los Angeles Clippers player, Al Thornton. Like the Gators, the Seminoles also boast seven freshmen on the team roster. But unlike the Gators, FSU returns four starters from last year's game, namely seniors Isaidh Swann and Jason Rich, and juniors Toney Douglas and Uche Echefu. FSU has had a rough start to the season. The Seminoles have Calathes lost to Cleveland State and South Florida so far. "It's an all-new rivalry," Calathes said. "It's new guys, it's a new challenge, so for us it's just another game at this point." Calathes said the matchup will be another test for the young team, which he said is improving by the game. "We keep getting better, but we need to keep playing together, keep doing the little things that help us win," he said. "We know that every game could be an upset with the way things are going in college basketball these days. So we need to take it one game at a time and keep moving forward." ____j

He walks off the team bus on game day carting his Louis Vuittonbag, and yet, despite the flashy style and designer bags, his teammates don't rag on him. "I'n Slike, where did you get that from?" fellow wide receiver Louis Murphy said "He's like, 'Boy, you ain't got this.' He'll joke, 'You can't get this."' Butbehind allthebravado, Caldwell remains down-to-earth, keeping his teannates'best interests at heart. "A lot of times he has a serious face on, so people think he's mean or something. But he's one ofthe goofiest persons I've ever metinmyhlife," wide receiverPercy Harvin said. "You could wake up and be in theterriblest mood, and he'll find a way to make you laugh." Tragedy and Triumph For as much as Caldwell is responsible for lifting his teasomates' spirits, he's had to work just as hard at keeping his own intact. His first test came during the Gators'hometvictory against Tennessee UF wide receiver Andre Caldwell stretches for a pass during the Gators' 59-20 win a Calkell will play his last Ome in The Swamp this Saturday against Florida State. in 2005. Caldwell started out strong, scoring UF's only touchdown on an 18-yard run in the first quarter. Then came the start of the second halt, when he received the kickoff on the goal line and returned it 21 yards before Tennessee linebacker Ryan Karl's helmet crashed into his right thigh. The devastating hit shattered Caldwell's femur and ended his junior season. His mother watched the hit on television. "I was freaking out. I just can't say more," Deborah said. "The phone started ringing. Reche was calling, and he was like, 'Andre broke his leg.' My husband started calling me, 'Bubba is in a lot a lot of pain. It's not looking good."' She decided to drive to Gainesville and kept imagining her son lying in the hospital bed with his leg hanging in traction, just like she used to see in the movies. "I didn't want to see Andre like that," she said. "But I kept telling myself, you got tobe strong foryourself and Andre. When I went in the there I was hugging him. He was really quiet. I said, 'You're going to overcome it.' He was like, 'yeah, yeah, yeah."' But the hit broke Caldwell's heart and will just asit had broken his bone. "He withdrew himself from really the program, from the football team," UF widereceivers coach Billy Gonzales said. He lost about 20 pounds. He looked like heawas sick. "He was parttof a team. He was a major player in the program, and next thing you know, they're telling (him), you might not ever play again." Caldwelldid everything thedoctors instructed him to do and entered the 2006 season with high expectations. However, when he finally took the field, he looked tentative, and Caldwell said it wasn't until UF's 21-14 win against Georgia on Oct. 28 that he really felt comfortable again. He caughteight passes for a seasonhigh 88 yards and one touchdown in the game. Prior, Caldwell had averaged just three receptions for 30 yards per game. "Ihadn't been hit in like a year," Caldwell said. "It took couple games for me to get used to people diving at my leg, trying to takethem out.Going into that game I was very confident." Caldwell finished the season as UF's second-leading receiver and ended it with fireworks, scoring a touchdown in the national championship game. Many expected him to follow the exodusof players who decided to enter the NFL Draft early. Caldwell was prjected to go in the third round, but that just wouldn't satisfy him. So, after seeking advice from Reche, who currently plays for the Washington Redskins, Caldwell decided to return for one more yearofrcollege football. "The plan was coming out of high school, do three years and get out of this place," Caldwell said. "After being hee for all these years, it's like my second home, and it's all Itow rightnow. I'mhappyawith the decision." The Gators were happy to have him back. With only 14 seniors returning, Caldwell has played a crucial role as a major leaderon the team. Although he usually took a backseat to vocal leaders like Dallas Baker and Jemalle Cornelius, Caldwell knew it was time to embrace his role. At a team gathering at UF coach Urban Meyer's home two weeks before tis season started, he gave an unexpected speech at Meyer's request. "Bubba's not really one to be all that vocal," linebacker Dustin Doe said. "But when he gave that testimony, it was kind of like he was free-styling and by him doing that everybody was on the same page. He was being real, but he was being poetic at the same time." Caldwell asked for every one of his teammates to jump on the bus with him for his last year as a Gator. "He's going to give everything he has, and he wanted us to give everything we had," Murphy said. "He's a good leader, and we don't want to let him down because he goes so hard." Caldwell looked primed to have a spectacular final season after his performance in the season opener. He tallied three rceptions for 103 yards.4 But then it happened again Caldwell sprained his knee in the second game of the season against Troy. When his family first saw him go down, they held their breath fearing the worst but exhaled when they saw Caldwell walk off the field. His parents.returned to their home relatively confident their son would be fine. Then, thephone rang on Sunday "When wetalked to Coach Gonzales and Coach Meyer, you would have thought they wee going to a funeral," Deborah said. He missed two weeks with the injury, started against Auburn -but didn't record a reception -and caught one pass during the LSU game the week after. Still, he was determined to finish the year stronger than ever. "I planned to have a greattyear, and to go down so early in the year, it was devastating," Caldwell said. "But like I told my momma, it's like a blessing in disguise. It made me realize, when I come back I got to be hungry and sacrifice whatever I can to get better everyday. And I'm doing that." The past three games Caldwell has churned out consecutive caner-high performances. He rcorded more than 100 yards each game and logged his best game to date against Florida Atlantic with 13 receptions for 164 yards. For his last game in The Swamp, Caldwell already has his perfect ending planned out. It would include a 150-yard game topped off with his final catch in the end zone, so he could throw the ball into the orange and blue cwdandereally be remembered. Whatever the outcome, Caldwell will undoubtedly be remembered by his teammates for the impact he has had on their lives. "That's a man that's willing to put forth his career for this football team, and that's all that's ever mattered to him," Gonzales said. "So to see these records come up right here, right now within his reach, it's fantastic for him. But at the sane time, he'd trade everything in to continue to be a great leader and a great rolenmodelfor these young kids." a

3, KII KOFF, ALLIGATOR N WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2007 Punter Graham Gano (52 punts, 42.8 avg, long 64). NALYSIS: Cismesia and Gano are solid and experienced kickers, unlike Ijjas and Henry. UF missed Brandon James last week -Jarred Fayson looked indecisive running the ball. Expect James back from suspension this week. The dangerous Parker also retums punts, though not as well as James. FSU's kick retuner, Michael Ray Garvin, ranks outside of the top 10D in Division-IA for average yards per retum with 20.2 ADVANTAGE: UF~ NPGIBLES: is is one of the dullest UF-FSU matchups in recent memory. The teams aren't playing to warm up for conference title games or to see who goes to the Sugar Bowl r Orange Bowl. Instead, FSU is looking at the possibility of a retum trip to the Emerald Bowl, or, better yet, the Music City Bowl. UF has it a bit better off with the pital One and Outback bowls on the horizon, but it's still not satisfying. This game will be all about who is more motivated. The last time FSU entered The Swamp, lrban Meyer wiped the floor with Bowden in a 34-7 drubbing. The spoils of the win included a grab bag of recruiting commitments, including Fayson and James.

WR Percy Harvin (54 att -442 yds, 8.2 avg, 4 TDs); FSU: Jr. LB Geno Hayes (71 tackles, 17.5 TFL), Jr. LB Derek Nicholson (81 tackles, 6 TFL). ANALYSIS: Tebow got stuffed by Florida Atlantic -that's right, Florida Atlantic. Cameron Newton and Markus Manson actually had UF's two longest runs against the Owls. Running back Kestahn Moore continues to successfully walk the Ought; rope for his starting job, rushing for two scores last week with Brandon James suspended. Harvin's return adds that tricky third element to the Gators' usually potent running attack. ADVANTAGE: UF UF PASS vs. FSU PASS DEFENSE UF passes for 264.5 yards per game; FLORIDA STATE allows 233.6 yards per game. KEY PLAYERS: UP: So. QB Tim Tebow (2,870 yds, 26 TDs-6 INTs, 68.5 pct, 177.47 rating), Sr. WR Andre Caldwell (48 rec, 665 yds, 13.9 avg, 4 TDs), So. WR Percy Harvin (45 rec, 714 yds, 15.9 avg, 3 TDs); FSU: So. SS Myron Rolle (54 tackles, 2 FR), So. CB Patrick Robinson (27 tackles, 6 INTs). ANALYSIS: For the first time in weeks, UF may have its entire group of wide receivers healthy. Harvin (sinus infection) and Riley Cooper (broken finger) have been hampered recently, while Caldwell (sprained MCL) and Cornelius Ingram (sprained ankle) overcame their injuries and posted solid numbers against Florida Atlantic. FSU has some great playmakers in its secondary in Rolle and Robinson and great experience in junior coiner Tony Carter and senior free safety Roger Williams. This will be a matchup to savor all day. ADVANTAGE: UF FSU RUN vs. UP RUN DEFENSE FLORIDA STATE runs for 123.3 yards per game; UF allows 99.4 yards per game. KEY PLAYERS: FSU: Jr. TB Antone Smith (171 att -657 yds, 3.8 avg, 3 TDs), So. WR Preston Parker (38 att -221 yds, 5.8 avg, 2 TDs); UP: So. LB Brandon Spikes (108 tackles, 11 TFL), So. LB Dustin Doe (72 tackles, 2 FR). ANALYSIS: Smith missed last week's win against Maryland with a bruised shoulder, and his top two backups sat out, too. That left the do-everything sophomore Parker to switch from wide receiver to running back. Parker transitioned smoothly, running for 133 yards. His performance has some in Tallahassee calling for a permanent switch, as Smith has been unimpressive and prone to injury this year. Smith should return this week, but it's anybody's guess as to how many carries Parker will steal from him. Spikes ranks second in the Southeastern Conference in tackles -five behind Kentucky linebacker Wesley Woodyard -and seems destined to be a first-team All-SEC pick. ADVANTAGE: UF 5-U PASS vs. UP PASS DEFENSE LORIDA STATE passes for 243.5 yards per game; UF allows 254.5 yards per game. EY PLAYERS: FSU: Jr. QB Drew Weatherford (1,585 yds, 8 TDs-1 INT,-59.7 pct, 127.27 rating), Jr. WR Greg Carr (38 rec, 688 yds, 18.1 avg, 3 TDs), Sr. WR DeCody Fagg (44 mc, 657 yds, 14.9 avg, 5 TDs), So. WR Preston Parker (48 631 yds, 13.1 avg, 3 TDs); UF: Jr. DE Derrick Harvey (40 tackles, 6.5 sacks), Sr. SS Tony Joiner (53 tackles, 2 INTs). NALYSIS: Bobby Bowden has borrowed from Steve Spurrier, using a quarterback carousel the last few years. Right now, Weatherford is slotted ahead of Xavier Lee and Christian Ponder. Weatherford hasn't been half bad recently, rocking off undefeated Boston College and beating Maryland in November. His group of receivers has the talent to rival UF's playmakers and beat the Gators' battered secondary, especially if Joe Haden sits out with a sprained ankle. DVANTAGE: FSU
