City passes


GRU rate


increases

By KRISTIN BJORNSEN
Alligator Contributing Writer
The Gainesville City Commission passed proposed rate
increases for Gainesville Regional Utilities in a meeting
Thursday night.
GRU will raise its rates on electricity, gas, wastewater
and drinking water for all customers starting Oct. 1.
Base rates for electricity will increase by $2.06 to $7.60.
Drinking water rates will go up $1.65 to $7, and gas rates
will go up $2.37 to $9.52.
"I think GRU has blindsided us out there."
Melody Sost
Cobblefield resident

Per-unit fees will also increase for each utility, depend-
ing on how much is used and when.
The price increase was caused by GRU's rising costs for
materials, improvements to facilities and fewer customers
than expected.
The wastewater rate change drew complaints from resi-
dents of private neighborhoods where the reclaimed water
is used for required lawn maintenance.
Instead of paying a flat rate of $10 a month, customers
will pay $6 a month plus 60 cents per 1,000 gallons used.
"I think GRU has blindsided us out there," said
Cobblefield resident Melody Sost. "It's not right."
Commissioner Jack Donovan moved to postpone the
wastewater decision for further analysis but was struck
down.
Most of the commissioners agreed that the new waste-
water rate was still low compared to other parts of the
nation.
"I'll say it tonight, and I'll say it as much as I need to: We
pay too little for water," Commissioner Lauren Poe said.


Minus grades to start summer A


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Writer
UF's grading system, which is be-
ing changed to include minus grades,
will premier a semester later than
planned.
UF Provost Joe Glover announced
the new grading scale at Thursday's
Faculty Senate meeting. Glover said
the scale would be ready by sum-


mer A.
Minus grades
were originally
approved by
the Senate in
December 2006,
according to
Senate records.
Glover According to
Alligator archives,
former UF Provost Janie Fouke said


in February that the new system
would be ready by January.
The new grading system won't
just add new grades: It will change
the value of plus grades as well. For
example, a B+, which is currently
worth 3.5 grade points, will be worth
3.33 points. A B- will be worth 2.67
points.
Student Senate records state that

Turlington evacuates after
fire alarm goes off
A fire alarm prompted a
few hundred UF students,
faculty and staff to evacuate
Turlington Hall for about half
an hour Thursday afternoon.
The alarm sounded off at
4:15 p.m. and disrupted much
of ninth period.
Lt. Terry McCarthy of the
Gainesville Fire Rescue said the
cause of the alarm appeared to
be a sensor that detected some
kind of aggravation, such as
dust, and not someone pulling
the alarm.
The building was cleared by
firefighters at about 4:45 p.m.
"You get false alarms all the
time," McCarthy said.
About six firefighters and
two fire trucks were sent to
the scene. McCarthy said more
were on standby because of the
building's size.
McCarthy said he and some
of the firefighters checked

STATE NEWS

Congress protects student loans


By JACQUELYN WEINER
Alligator Writer
jweiner@alligator.org

Although it won't affect UF students, some college
students in Florida who worry about securing federal
student loans may be able to rest easy for at least an-
other year.
A bill that extends by a year the federal govern-
ment's protection of banks that handle federal student
loans is awaiting President Bush's signature. The
purpose of the bill is to ensure that college students
can obtain federal loans regardless of the state of the
national economy.
The legislation would not affect UF students be-
cause the university uses the Federal Direct Loan
Program instead of working through lenders, said
Karen Fooks, director of UF Student Financial Affairs.
UF opted out of working through lenders in 1993,
Fooks said.
Florida State University and the University of
Central Florida, however, are among the universities
that use federal lenders and will be affected by the
new legislation.
The new measure was approved by the U.S. House
of Representatives on Monday and was quickly
passed on to the Senate, which voted in favor of the
legislation Wednesday, according to the House's
Committee on Education and Labor's Web site.
The bill extends for another year the authority, of
Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings to purchase
student loans. This allows the government to provide
lenders with a steady flow of money so they won't
have to turn eligible students away, according to the
committee's Web site.
The secretary's authority to bail out suffering lend-


ers was originally granted to Spellings through the
Ensuring Continued Access to Student Loans Act,
which was signed into law in May.
So far, no students have reported problems access-
ing federal student aid, according to the committee's
Web site.
The legislation is a preventative measure to ensure
that qualified students are able to receive federal aid
for college.
Texas Congressman Ruben Hinojosa emphasized
the importance of maintaining sufficient federal stu-
dent loan money during disctission
of the bill Monday before the House
of Representatives' vote, according
to the Library of Congress' Web
Site.
Hinojosa is chairman of the
House Subcommittee on Higher
Education, Lifelong Learning, and
Hinojosa Competitiveness and cosponsored
the bill.
"It would be a tragedy for a student to decide to
forego or postpone college because of a fear of not
being able to get a federal student loan," he said dur-
ing House discussions of the bill, according to the
library's Web site.
Florida Sen. Bill Nelson said in a statement that
the legislation is important because it ensures there is
enough financial aid available for students who need
help paying for college.
Fooks said regardless of credit market conditions,
UF students should not have any problems obtaining
loan money because UF works directly with the gov-
ernment.
Between 16,000 and 17,000 UF students pay for
their education using direct federal loans, she said.


GPD arrests SG


party members
Of 10 underage drinking arrests made by Gainesville
Police on Wednesday night, five involved members of Student
Government political parties at The Swamp Restaurant.
Gator Party Treasurer Brady Beitlich, 20, was one of the
students arrested on charges of underage drinking.
Beitlich said he regrets his decision, but the incident is unre-
lated to the Gator Party.
"This is simply five college students who made
a bad decision and are dealing with the side
effects from it."
Brady Beitlich
Gator Party Treasurer

"This is simply five college students who made a bad deci-
sion and are dealing with the side effects from it," he said.
Two students who registered with the party this week were
among those arrested, along with Sen. Suzanne Hershman,
20, and replacement Sen. Ryan McCarthy, who turns 21 next
month.
"It's really no one else's business," Beitlich said. "It was
simply friends gathering at Swamp after a very long day."
All five students were issued a court date and a notice to
appear, said GPD Lt. Keith Kameg.
Kameg said the arrests should serve as a wake-up call for
bar and restaurant security.

STUDENT LIFE

Blood drive uses rivalry


By NATHAN DEEN
Alligator Contributing Writer
For students who donate blood, the
idea that they could save a person's life
is satisfying enough, but UF freshman
Giovanni Oliva feels he has made more of
an impact than usual.
"I want us to win," Oliva said. "Every
person counts."
Oliva is one of the donors in a com-
petition between UF and the University
of Tennessee that expands their rivalry
beyond sports. For the third straight year,
the two schools are competing to get the
most students to donate blood in a week.
Tennessee beat UF by a wide margin
the first two years of the competition, but
this year, things may change.
As of Thursday night, UF took the
lead over Tennessee, 1,147 to 1,116 stu-
dent donors.
Life South Community Blood Centers,
the sole supplier of blood for all hospitals
within the Gainesville region, is doing
everything it can to encourage students
to donate. Donors receive free snacks,
drinks and a T-shirt that reads "I Bleed"


Orange and Blue."
Emphasizing Tennessee's past domi-
nation in the competition may be having
an impact. This week is one of Life South's
best of the year.
"This is a very competitive drive," said
Laura Gale Bialeck, a donor recruiter for
Life South. "There's definitely an interest
in where we are in the competition."
Just the words "versus Tennessee"
have more students willing to help.
"This is a very competitive drive.
There's definitely an interest in
where we are in the competi-
tion."
Laura Gale Bialeck
donor recruiter for Life South

"I want to beat Tennessee any way
possible," said Marissa Gainsburg, a UF
freshman.
Today is the last day for students
to donate. Bialeck said that the drive's
results could be tallied as early as late
afternoon.


Business college to offer


lecture podcasts in Oct.


By KAYLEE MCCALL
Alligator Contributing Writer

To keep up with highly mobile stu-
dents, the Warrington College of Business
Administration at UF is providing down-
loadable lectures that students can watch
wherever and whenever.
Eric Olson, director oftheUFInformation
Technology Support Programs, plans on de-
buting free podcasts for all online business
course lectures in early October. Podcasts
are digital audio files that can be accessed
through the Internet and downloaded onto
a computer or mobile device.
Business professors already record lec-
tures as they speak during class and upload
them to the college's Internet server.
Offering the lectures in podcast form
will allow students to download the up-
dated structural content automatically


every time they plug their mobile device
into iTunes.
Olson said students can then access the
file and play it as often as they like.
He said the previous Windows video
format was inconvenient, and now stu-
dents with iPods will no
UF demcs longer have to convert
Academic the lecture format to fit
their systems.
Olson said podcasts could expand to
other UF departments but would not re-
place traditional lectures.
Jeramy Gonzalez, a UF zoology senior,
said a lecture podcast would make study-
ing easier.
"Commuting and waiting between
classes takes up a lot of time," Gonzalez
said. "But with podcasting lectures, I
could watch them between classes or on
the bus."

Car crashes into house


Harrison Diamond. Alligator Staff
A car sits partially embedded in the front wall of a house at 3020 NW 54th Ave. on Thursday
morning after it was driven through the yard and into the house.


* THE ACCIDENT WAS CAUSED
BY A FIGHT, POLICE SAY.

The front-seat passenger of a
car that crashed into a house in
Northwest Gainesville was arrested
Thursday morning.
The arrest came after police at-
tributed the car accident to a physi-
cal dispute between the car's driver
and passenger, said Gainesville
Police Officer Kelly Weaver, who
was on the scene.
A woman was driving the car west
on Northwest 54th Avenue with her
72-year-old mother in the passenger
seat around 11:30 a.m. when the two
began to argue, Weaver said.
Police reported that the passenger
pulled the driver's hair, causing the
steering wheel to shift to the right,
he said.
The car veered off the road and
into the house, Weaver said.


"It was a very low-speed crash,"
he said.
The car came to a stop in the liv-
ing room of a home at 3020 NW 54th
Ave. while the owners were in the
kitchen, Weaver said.
"They walked around and saw a
car in the house," Weaver said.
He said the driver and the owners
of the house were not hurt, and the
car was still drivable.
"They walked around and
saw a car in the house."
Kelly Weaver
Gainesville Police Officer

The passenger was arrested on
charges of domestic battery.
She was taken to the hospital in
accordance with procedures but did
not appear to be injured, Weaver
said.

Message urges BSU members to interview for Gator Party


President to approve future messages


Another message urging mem-
bers of a student organization to
register with the Gator Party during
interviews for spots in next month's
Student Government elections has
emerged.
A member of the Black Student
Union sent a Facebook message that
encouraged members to support the


Gator Party.
It was sent by Naadira Renfroe,
the organization's SG liaison.
"Everyone is encouraged to come
out and slate with the Gator Party,"
Renfroe's message stated.
A similar message was sent by an
Indian Student Association member
on Tuesday.


BSU President Courtney
Stephenson was quoted in a
Wednesday Alligator article as say-
ing that members of a student orga-
nization should not be told which
party to choose.
In an interview Thursday,
Stephenson said he was unaware of
the message.


He said that he stood by his state-
ments in Wednesday's article.
"1 really regret that it happened,
but I did what I could to rectify the
situation," he said.
As president,
StUdent Stephenson claimed
Life responsibility and said
only BSU's executive
board will be able to send future
messages, which must be approved
by Stephenson.

Meanwhile, Lisa "Turtlee"

Wednesday interview that her or-
ganization was allowed to tell mem-
bers to support the Gator Party.
Patel, who sent the message, said
the party never contacted ISA about
funding, which was a motivating
factor in Patel's message.
"That was a mistake, and we do
apologize for that," she said.

6, ALLIGATOR N FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 2008


Editorial
The end of this week has been a bit hectic. There hasn't
been an open seat in Library West for the past 48 hours, so
we've been forced to run mini-marathons around Marston
in search of a spot that was somewhat quiet and had contact
with an AC vent.
It's hard to study in hot, stale air when you've sweated
backpack straps onto the shoulders of your T-shirt and the
group of girls sitting behind you won't stop cackling about
God-knows-what. Thankfully, though, we survived our
tests and are being rewarded with the annual match up
between our beloved Gators and our rivals up in Knoxville,
Tenn.
That's enough about us; let's get on with this week's edi-
tionof ...


Darts & Laurels
To kick things off this week, we'd like to hand a this-
is-a-tradition-we-can-stand-by LAUREL to the Great
Underwear Dash 8. We can't believe this thing has persisted
for eight separate installations, but we're glad it has. Our
only real concern is, if the Undie Dash maintains its current
momentum, original Dashers will return in 30 years, strip to
their unmentionables and participate in the GUD 38.
If some of you do plan to dash as 50-something alumni,
please be sure to keep running in the meantime. We don't
want the police Tasering a group of half-naked old people
- think of all the jiggling.
Next up, we'd like to send an aren't-gas-prices-bad-
enough-already DART to the jerk who decided to spread
a rumor about a gas shortage. We don't know if you were
honestly concerned or if you wanted to create some extra
weekend business for a Gainesville gas station. The only
good to come from the rumor was we all decided we
weren't going to drive last weekend, so we stayed home
and partied. Thankfully, there was no rumor of a Natty
Light shortage.
Once again, we'd like to send a we've-come-a-long-way-
baby LAUREL to George Starke Jr., the first black student
admitted to UF. Thank you for breaking a cruel barrier 50
years ago and changing our lives for the better.
Now we'd like to toss a we-are-voting-Republican--
because-Paris-Hilton-says-Sarah-Palin's-glasses-are-hot
DART to anyone who focused on the Alaskan's eyewear
rather than her resume. The Editorial Board isn't trying to
influence anybody's vote, regardless of accusations against
us. We just want to make sure people are paying attention
to issues and not whether the candidates wear white after
Labor Day.
Finally, we've got a D&L doubleheader for you.
We'd like to send a where-did-you-all-come-from
LAUREL to the UF student body for an above-average
turnout for Student Senate party interviewing this week.
It's always good to see a constituency show enough initia-
tive to give the idea they truly care who represents them.
On the other hand, we are chucking a we-smell-some-
thing-fishy-and-possibly-infuriating DART to the Facebook
message encouraging student organizations to register un-
der the Gator Party to receive more SG funding. If it turns
out that SG functions on a foundation of bribery, then we'll
rescind the student body's above-mentioned laurel because
compelled participation isn't participation at all it's just
following directions.
Being de-laureled puts you immediately into the D&L
Hall of Shame, where you get to hang out with Andrew
"Don't Dart me, Bro" Meyer. We'know you don't want to
be there, and we don't want to put you there. We sincerely
hope these shady dealings are 100 percent false.
Go Gators, and have a safe weekend.

Letters to the Editor
Meyer's actions not heroic
Andrew Meyer is not a hero.
Meyer did not stand face-to-face with tanks
in protest of an oppressive government (see
Tiananmen Square).
He did not lead a march on Washington,
D.C. in an effort to gain basic human rights
for people (see Martin Luther King Jr.). He
did not participate in protests to gain religious
freedoms (see Protestant Reformation).
These others were heroes. They protested
to gain basic rights of equality.
What Meyer did do was behave belliger-
ently in what had been a peaceful intellectual
discussion. He did throw a temper tantrum
when he was politely told to relinquish the
microphone. He did avoid several opportuni-
ties to conduct himself in a mature fashion as
University Police escorted him out. Meyer em-
barrassed himself, his family and his school,
and he abused his right to free speech.
He behaved more like a drunk, visiting
fan screaming obscenities than as a protester
trying desperately to rally support for a noble
cause. He got exactly what he deserved.

Racism does not exist in U.S. society
Daniel Seco is writing about a problem that


doesn't exist.
The all-white jury hasn't convicted O.J.
Simpson. Even if they do, Seco would have
to prove that Simpson is nearly not guilty to
have a semi-valid case.
Seco is the racist. He's the one writing a
column about the jurors' race and assuming,
because the jurors are white, they will convict
a black man regardless of the facts of the case.
Get a life. Write about something that exists.

Hand scanners a waste of money
At a time of grave financial crisis, record
layoffs and severe budget cuts, UF and
Student Gdvernment have no business allow-
ing the installation of expensive hand scanners
in the recreational facilities. Students do not
want their money wasted on such technology.
As someone who collected signatures for
the petition, I am terribly confused by David
Knowles' assertion that, "The one thing we've
been hearing from students for years is that
they don't want to have to bring their Gator 1
cards when they come to work out."
Only.one of the nearly 200 people I spoke
to actually expressed interest in such technol-
ogy. The rest of them thought the idea was


ridiculous. The problem could be solved by
taking a closer look at Gator 1 cards, asking
forgetful students for another form of identi-
fication or merely asking the students for their
UF ID numbers and addresses.
I expect the UF population to overwhelm-
ingly oppose such superfluous spending.
However, knowing the school's history, I also
suspect that, like the student-run coffee shop
and socially responsible investing, our duly
cast votes will be subverted.

McCain doesn't support troops
I opened up the Alligator on Wednesday to
find an awful rant by Andrew Fells. I would
like to set him straight. First, Alaska Gov.
Sarah Palin's bubble has just burst. Maybe it
has something to do with her personal tan-
ning booth or her cutting funding for Alaska's
Special Olympics.
Although it's nice to say Sen. John McCain
has always stood by the troops, maybe you
should check his record before making those
claims. He voted against the GI Bill, increased
funding for veterans' health care, funding a
trust fund for military health facilities and
funding for counseling services for veterans
with mental disorders.


Good going, almost as good as how he ap-
parently invented the BlackBerry.
Francisco Sotomayor
3EG

McCain's voting record consistently bad
Andrew Fells' editorial was appalling, as
was the decision to publish it. Poorly written
and childish, there was no logical structure.
It consisted simply of random rants and feel-
ings.
When it does try to draw upon evidence,
the article simply repeats false accusations and
unsubstantiated assertions. To refute Fells'
feeble claim that John McCain is stronger than
Barack Obama on military matters, McCain
voted no on the Health Care for Veterans
Amendment, as well as no on an amendment
that would have provided money for readjust-
ment counseling, related mental health servic-
es and rehabilitative services for veterans with
mental illness, post-traumatic stress disorder
or substance abuse disorder.
As for his character, he left his first wife
after she was hurt in a horrible car accident,
and the Senate Ethics Committee found that
McCain, one of the "Keating Five," exercised
poor judgment during the Savings and Loan
Crisis of the 1980s. Check your facts, Andrew
Fells.

Guest column-


Presidential election could determine economic future of U.S.


In the past two weeks, the global
financial system has seen such cha-
otic and devastating activity that, as
voters, we find ourselves in a critical
position to' elect a president who
will maneuver us far from the des-
titution of the Bush administration's
policies.
Before, one could make a reason-
able argument that a vote for Sen.
John McCain was at least in the best
interest of those with large bank
accounts. It was assumed the rich
should vote Republican.
Now, with the investments of the
entire world on thin ice, such an as-
sumption cannot be made.
Given the emerging and estab-
lished evidence of the negligent and
failing Bush administration policies,
Americans must understand the
enormous impact that the state of


the global financial system has on
them.
By no standard is the economic
foundation of our nation stable; it is
in a state of utter chaos.
In case you've been sleeping for
the past two weeks, several historic
events have taken place in the finan-
cial world that will impact the lives
of most of the people on this planet.
Last week, the government made
unprecedented seizures of financial
mortgage giants Fannie Mae and
Freddie Mac. ,
Plans were announced Sunday
for Merrill Lynch to be sold to
avoid bankruptcy., On Monday,
investment-banking titan Lehman
Brothers declared bankruptcy. Both
events caused a flurry of fearful ac-
tivity on the stock market.
The Dow Jones Industrial


Lance Legel Average
Speaking Out responded
by dropping
more than
504 points on Monday, which was
the greatest one-day drop since the
first day of trading after the Sept. 11
terrorist attacks.

the massive insurance company
AIG in exchange for an $85 billion

the Dow Jones plummeted again.
nearly 450 points.
What does this mean? In histori-
cal context, it serves as a potential
beckoning to a great financial de-
pression.
This decline could rob the value
of all our assets through the degra-


dation of the American dollar. We
must avoid this downturn at all
costs by using the 2008 presidential
election to re-chart our nation's eco-
nomic course.
Our continued dependence on
fossil fuels serves to threaten our na-
tional security while simultaneously
perpetuating expensive preemptive
wars and permanently scarring our
environment.
The ecological and financial costs
of worsening the effects of global
warming via continued investment
in the oil industry will serve to eco-
nomically paralyze our nation in the
pursuit of sustaining a modernized
industrial economy.
This election, when deciding
between a candidate funded by
the lobbyists responsible for Bush
administration policies and a candi-


date funded by 2.5 million outraged
American citizens demanding
change in these policies, please
choose wisely.
Know that McCain's dialogue of
change in Washington is laughable
compared to his record of voting
with Bush policies.
Independently research energy,
health care, war, the environment
and the economy before you go to
the polls. Each of these issues is criti-
cal to this election.
Elect a leader we can count on to
guide us in these turbulent times, as
Abraham Lincoln and Franklin D.
Roosevelt did in theirs.
Elect Barack Obama.

County holds


hunger summit

By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Contributing Writer
Poverty and hunger in Alachua County are causing resi-
dents to resort to some unusual methods of finding food.
"We have elders reporting that they.are Dumpster diving
in order to eat at the end of the month when their food stamps
run out," said John Skelly, poverty reduction program manager
for the Department of Children and Family Services in Alachua
County.
Skelly organized the Alachua County Hunger Summit,
which drew about 150 people Thursday to the Martin Luther
King Jr. Activity Center.
Local Skelly said he has observed the poverty prob-
News lems within the county for the past year.
"The biggest situation we are dealing with is
hunger," he said.
Local organizations, restaurants and grocery stores have
excess food they do not use, he said, adding that the summit
will be asking the organizations to donate food so volunteers
can deliver them.
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan said this is the first time Alachua
County has held a Hunger Summit, and it came during a par-
ticularly challenging time with dwindling resources.
"Only 55 percent of people eligible for food stamps actually
receive them," Hanrahan said.
The rest of those eligible often don't apply because of lim-
ited access to a computer or means of transportation, according
to the 2008 Survey on Hunger in Alachua County conducted
by DCF in April.
Don Winstead, deputy secretary of DCF, said UF is a useful
resource to the community.
UF has a $4.2 million statewide contract with DCF to aid
in helping local communities, Winstead said, and university
staff and students provide nutritional education to low income
families.
Marilyn Baker, a DCF representative, was on-hand to offer
information about income limits and the allotment of money
for food stamps, which increases every October.
"For a one-person household, the amount will rise from
$162 to $176 per year," she said.
Baker said DCF is informing unemployed residents and
those who don't have food for their families about where to
go for help.
"People that need food stamps should make sure they ap-
ply online," she said. "It processes much faster than the paper
application."
Applicants can track their application's progress online,
Baker said, and if they do not get a response within 30 days,
they should call to follow up.


500 attend Ramadan Fast-a-thon


By KASEY ROBERTS
Alligator Contributing Writer

The sun went down, and
the feast began Thursday as
people filled the floor level of
the O'Connell Center in honor
of Ramadan, the holiest month of
the Islamic calendar.
The Ramadan Fast-a-thon,
hosted by Islam on Campus, was
open to people of any religion,
and about 500 people attended.
Osman Zafar, chairman- of the
event, said the organization asked
all participants to fast Thursday
to experience for one day what
Muslims experience the entire
month of Ramadan, which takes
place during the ninth month of
the Islamic calendar.
This year, Ramadan spans
the month of September. During
Ramadan, Muslims fast daily
from sunrise to sunset.
"One of the greatest devel-
opments of self-control is
to control what you put in
your mouth."
Imam Siraj Wahhaj
keynote speaker

Everyone who attended the
event was treated to a dinner
catered by Chutnees and Falafel
King that included hummus,
chicken, rice and salad.
The day's fast was broken
with dates and water at 7:35
p.m. following a reciting of "The
Sunset Prayer."
Imam Siraj Wahhaj, the first
Muslim to lead a prayer at the
U.S. House of Representatives,
spoke to students about the
purpose, benefits and power of
fasting.
Siraj Wahhaj said that man's
first sin, as agreed on by people
of Christian, Jewish and Muslim
religions, was to eat something
that was prohibited. Fasting is

prescribed to Muslims in the
Quran, and it will raise both con-
sciousness of God and conscious-
ness of the poor, he said.
"One-of the greatest develop-
ments of self-control is to control
what you put in your mouth," he
said to the crowd.
Siraj Wahhaj said that if stu-
dents are able to fast from food,
drinks and sexual relations dur-
ing the daylight of Ramadan,
they will continue to have a posi-
tive discipline after it is over.
"If you can stay away from


water during the month of
Ramadan, think of how easy it
will be to stay away from alco-
hol," he said.
Zafar said Islam on Campus
members have asked local busi-
nesses for merchandise dona-
tions that will be auctioned off
closer to the end of Ramadan.
The proceeds will go to the St.
Francis House, a local emergency
food shelter for the homeless.
"Last year, we raised about
$5,000," Zafar said. "We're look-
ing to raise that amount."

plus grades were added at UF in

by the rest of UF four years later.
The new grading system brings
with it an array of side effects, in-
cluding a possible fluctuations of
student grade point averages.
It could also affect whether stu-
dents earn math and writing credits
from their classes, Glover said.
Florida law states that students
must earn a C or higher in a class to
earn such credits.

Students who take courses pass/
fail, which requires a grade of C or
higher to pass, will need to earn
higher grades to pass. Eligibility for
financial aid and honors status could
also be put at risk, Glover said.
The new system will require
professors to change their syllabuses
and UF to modify transcripts and
the algorithm it uses to compute
GPAs, he said.
Student Body President Kevin
Reilly, who sponsored a Student
Senate resolution in 2006 opposing
minus grades, said he is against mi-
nus grades because they will lower


students' GPAs though students will
not be doing anything differently.

Eight of the 10 other universi-

Bernie Machen discussed the results
of a new student survey that he said
poses troubling questions for the

The National Survey of Student

774 colleges and universities across

UF students were satisfied with
their education and experience, but
it also showed that UF is not chal-

peer universities, Machen said.
Machen said UF students report-
ed lower levels of class participation
and fewer written assignments than
students at peer universities.
"Some of these variables could
be impacted by our horrible faculty-

Column


SITE: Neyland Stadium, Knoxville,
Tenn., (cap. 104,079)
KICKOFF: Saturday 3:30 p.m.
TV/RADIO: CBS/WRUF AM850


We here at the alligatorSports Brand
Picks Column like to remember those
who help us become the big freaking
studs we are in the journalism com-
munity.
A year ago, an up-and-coming
sophomore from alligatorSports, Mike
McCall, went on ESPN's "First Take"
against The Daily Beacon (Tennessee's
student paper) sports editor Hunter
Pavlik.
We promise we haven't let McCall
anywhere near writing this thing.
If you haven't seen the clip on
YouTube yet, stop what you're doing
and go watch. It should be part of your
UF fan packet.
Let's just say it spawned this group
on Faceboolc "Who's Hunter Pavlik?
Hunter Pavlik is Mike's bitch." '
Being the nice, unbiased journalists
we are, we certainly have no comment
on such thoughts except to say, well
- we think so too.
Turns out Pavlik is the complete an-
tithesis to McCall the Tennessee grad
is also a fan of Virginia Tech (recently
upset by McCall's ECU Pirates) and
grew up a huge Duke fan in Durham
(Mike also loves UNC and despises all
things Blue Devils). But let the record
show Pavlik was a good sport in re-
counting the events of a year ago. He
seems like a jolly fellow and may very
well be more successful than all of us.
Kidding, of course. Anyhow, we
caught up with Pavlik this week and
found him up in Washington, D.C. He
graduated from Tennessee in May and
moved to the nation's capital to fol-
low his girlfriend, who is going to law
school at American.
"I haven't got anything permanent
yet. I'm freelancing for a Maryland pa-
per back and forth," Pavlik said. "But
I've had a bunch of interviews lately,
and I think something permanent is

Gators get set for first test against Vols


By MIKE McCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alligator.org

Forget about those other two
games. Hawaii and Miami were
merely warm-ups.
Lose the thought that the
defense might have improved
since last season, and hold your
judgment about UF's running
backs or the play of quarterback
Tim Tebow.
The No. 4 Gators (2-0) have
a clean slate, and Saturday's
matchup at Tennessee won't
look anything like those first two
contests.
Players on both sides will fly
to the ball faster, there will likely
be more shots downfield in the
passing game, and Percy Harvin
will be "cut loose." This is UF's
first step toward the goal of a
Southeastern Conference title.
"This is basically another
opener," cornerback Joe Haden
said. "SEC is definitely what you
get pumped up about."
Some of the excitement
has been scaled back since the
Volunteers (1-1) aren't ranked -
the first time in the series that has
been true since 1984 -but expect
a different look from Tennessee
than the squad that lost to UCLA
in overtime two weeks ago.
And, with the crowd on their
side, don't look for the Volunteers
to limp out of this game like they

Surgery can't stop cross country runner Criscione


T he tailgaters won't be there.

People ready to scream.
The dew will be fresh. The sun will have
come up an hour earlier.
Jeremy Criscione doesn't mind.
The senior cross country star holds school
records in both the 5-mile and 8K and is one of
the odds-on favorites for Saturday's Mountain
Dew Invitational, and yet many students don't
even know his name.
But for him, this sure beats watching from
the sidelines.
E
Criscione had hernia surgery on Aug. 3,
2007, causing him to miss last season's opening
meet, the Gators' only home competition.
He missed 10 or 11 days of practice.


But the season that
would follow inspired
" confidence that may
have been a blessing in
disguise.
He remembers wor-
Phil Kegler trying about being fully
Phil on the Hill healed during his first
pkegler@alligator.org workout.
Then there were
worries about his first
race, the Auburn Invitational. All Criscione did
was turn in a career-best time in the 8K.
He felt the time could have been mislead-
ing by a forgiving course. The worries were
unfounded.
The senior broke a 14-year-old school record
in the 8K the following week, and all the con-
cerns were forgotten.


But Criscione knew a little differently. He
could still feel the stitches and mesh from the
surgery. Jabs of pain shot through him occa-
sionally.
"You always question if it came back or if
something tore again."
It didn't, and doctors tell him now there's a
negligible chance of it recurring. Sometimes he
still feels a pang or two but nothing compared
to the loneliness felt at last year's NCAA meet.
E U N
While the UF women qualified as a team for
last year's NCAA Championships, the men did
not. So as Criscione lined up at the start he
qualified as an individual he felt the differ-
ence of having no pack to hunt with.

UF faces former RB coach Drayton


FOOTBALL, from page 17


, Everyone seems to be in agreement on where
this game will be won or lost. The team with
more rushing yards has taken 16 of the last 18
meetings, and the Gators have dominated in
that department recently.
The Volunteers' rushing totals the last three
times were 66, minus-11 and 37 yards, and they
haven't broken a run for more than 10 yards
against UF since 2005.
"They are a tailback-oriented offense, and
(senior running back Arian Foster) is really
good," coach Urban Meyer said. "So getting
pressure on the quarterback is going to be criti-
cal, but I think what's more critical is stopping
that run."
Tennessee running backs coach Stan Drayton
might throw a hitch in Meyer's plans, as he
served at the same position with UF for the past
three seasons.
Meyer said he isn't worried about Drayton
giving the Volunteers any advantage in terms of
knowing the Gators' plays, and his decision to
move to a conference opponent doesn't bother
Meyer.


"It's just a rival," he said. "I want everyone to
better their family and do what they have to do,
but that's part of the deal. I'm fine, we just have
tomove on. God bless him and good luck."
While some of the hype for this game may
be lost, it still carries enormous significance.
Since the SEC split into divi-
sions, either UF or Tennessee
has won the East 13 out of
16 times, -and the loser of the
battle between the two teams
Shas only come back to make
the SEC Championship three
times a feat the Volunteers
accomplished last year.
The game will also give the defense a chance
to prove it can be a strong point instead of a
weakness.
The unit especially the secondary
- played well in the first two games, but every-
thing will be a little tougher now.
"The speed is different from any other team.
Linemen are faster, and it's like everybody trains
just to run fast," linebacker Brandon Hicks said.
"It's faster than the regular pace of a college
game. People talk about it, and you don't really
notice it or feel it until you're actually in it."


PHIL, from page 17

"You don't ever want to get on a
starting line with 250 other runners,
and you're the only one from your
team," he said.
Todd Morgan has stepped up
as the main coach leading the cross
country team this fall, and he has
seen a lot of development in his star
senior.
"He's just really got his head
down, showing up every day, clock-
ing in," Morgan said. "We learned a
lot with Jeremy last year."
It's a lesson Morgan and
Criscione want this team to take to
heart it's not how you start, it's
how you finish.
During Criscione's freshman
and sophomore years, the Gators
peaked midway through the season,
and their mid-season rankings were
always higher than their finishes at
the NCAA meet.
Last season, the team did not


qualify for nationals. While some of
this can be attributed to pushing too
early in the season, there's another
factor at play here.
Cross Country races usually
come in two varieties for men 8K
and 10K. UF runs in 8K races all the
way until NCAA Regionals and
Championships. Those last two
meets by far, the most important
- are 10K-length.
This year is Criscione's last
chance to have a successful finish
to his career. Then again, he just
finished up another chase in his life
- looking for the 1999 Walt Disney
documentary/drama "Endurance."
The senior had watched a part of
the movie many years ago but was
unable to find a copy to finish it.
The trail came to an end
Wednesday when Criscione bor-
rowed a copy from his coach.
With that complete, the pair will
turn back to the unsolved mystery
of how to get the Gators to produce
at the NCAA Championship meet.
Similar success seems likely.

bread-winner, and we certainly respect that here.
Pavlik admits he wasn't surprised by last year's outcome
on the field and joked he hopes the Volunteers "can keep them
within 30" this time around. As for the other nationally tele-
vised beatdown his showdown with McCall on "First Take"
- Pavlik said he held back on trash-talking because, well, there
isn't much to trash-talk about for Tennessee.
"You guys had just come off national championships in
football and basketball, and I didn't really want to throw any
Pat Summitt stuff out there. ... I mean, I wanted UT to win and
everything, but in the back of my head, logic is telling me that
Florida is probably going to cream us."
--'Cs to his pick for this weekend, here's what he had to say:
"There's no way I'm putting anything in your paper that
says Florida is going to win. We should've beat you guys two
years ago in Knoxville. UT kicks the late field goal to win."
Pavlik had this final message for UF students:

and seriously this time we're going to rush for more than 50
yards against you guys."

In sole possession of first place with a 17-3 record is Phil
"The thought of the Tampa Bay Rays in the World Series gives
me a raging erection" Kegler, who went a whopping 10-0 two
weeks ago and celebrated by broadcasting it on his Facebook
status and renting a chick flick. We cannot confirm any chicks

In second with a 15-5 mark on the year is Assistant Sports
Editor Evan "I live for Alligator travel" Drexler, who was
comparing the pros and cons of the Cincinnati and Charlotte
airports for a possible layover on a flight to the Arkansas game.
Hey, I hear they both have big windows and loud planes.
Checking in at a respectable third with a 14-6 record is
Sports Editor Brian "'T' for Troll" Steele, whose Harry Potter
fanaticism allowed him to remember the grading scale for a
fictional set of exams in the office the other night. If he could
just remember what spell Harry cast in Chapter 34 of book four,
he'd have a girlfriend in no time.

Friends become foes as UF opens SEC play with UGA


* KRISTY JAECKEL PLAYED IN HIGH
SCHOOL WITH UGA'S ANN DYLLA.

By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

The Gators' freshmen will have their first
brush with Southeastern Conference play
tonight, but that doesn't mean the match
will be entirely foreign for a few first-year
players.
When No. 11 UF (6-1) squares off with
Georgia (7-4) tonight in the O'Connell
Center, there will be a couple familiar faces
on the other side of the court.
UF redshirt freshman Kristy Jaeckel
played high school volleyball in Colorado
with Georgia's starting middle blocker, Ann
Dylla the team's second leading blocker
(1.07 per set).


"It's always fun to see people that you
know from back home out here," said
Jaeckel, who plans to go out to dinner with
her old friend while she's in town.
Freshmen Colleen Ward and Kelly
Murphy played on the same Illinois-based
club volleyball team with Georgia libero
Carla Tietz, who has logged the second-
highest dig-per-set total on the team (3.17).
Ward said she.hasn't kept in touch with
Tietz since coming to college and added it's
a weird feeling seeing an old teammate on
the other side of the net. When the fresh-
man class takes the court and kicks off a new
conference slate, history would indicate that
they will become familiar with something
else: winning.
In the 17 years coach Mary Wise has been
at the helm, the Gators' SEC success can
only be described as utter domination.
UF's collective record over that time span


is 294-9, and 11 times the Gators have run
through the conference schedule without a
single slip-up.
On the way to winning games at a 97
percent clip, six teams in the conference
Georgia, Alabama,
Kentucky, Mississippi,
Mississippi State and
Auburn have never
Volleyball defeated Wise.
If the Gators are able to
defeat the Bulldogs tonight, Wise will im-
prove to 44-0 against the team from Athens.
Despite all the impressive statistics and
tradition of mowing down SEC competi-
tion, Wise noted the improvement across the
conference.
"This is not your mother's SEC," she said.
"This is a very different-looking league."
Wise said every team in the league has a
go-to player that is capable of carrying her


team to a victory on any given night, which
will keep the league more balanced from top
to bottom.
"We're all an ankle sprain away from be-
ing in the middle of the pack," she said.
In preparing for the Bulldogs, the Gators
have been focusing on senior outside hitter
Maria Taylor.
Taylor comes into the matchup averaging
more than four kills per set.
UF will have to key in on Taylor a
player Wise called the early favorite for SEC
Player of the Year in order to prevent their
second consecutive loss.
Wise and many of the players said they
learned more from losing to Colorado State
than they would have from a win, and they
hope to use that to get better and raise t.~ir
game against Georgia.
"We know that we can come out and be a
way better team," Jaeckel said.

VJLUIVIE 1V2 ISSU .1 7 City passes GRU rate increases By KRISTIN BJORNSEN Alligator Contributing Writer The Gainesville City Commission passed proposed rate increases for Gainesville Regional Utilities in a meeting Thursday night. GRU will raise its rates on electricity, gas, wastewater and drinking water for all customers starting Oct. 1. Base rates for electricity will increase by $2.06 to $7.60. Drinking water rates will go up $1.65 to $7, and gas rates will go up $2.37 to $9.52. "I think GRU has blindsided us out there." Melody Sost Cobblefield resident Per-unit fees will also increase for each utility, depending on how much is used and when. The price increase was caused by GRU's rising costs for materials, improvements to facilities and fewer customers than expected. The wastewater rate change drew complaints from residents of private neighborhoods where the reclaimed water is used for required lawn maintenance. Instead of paying a flat rate of $10 a month, customers will pay $6 a month plus 60 cents per 1,000 gallons used. "I think GRU has blindsided us out there," said Cobblefield resident Melody Sost. "It's not right." Commissioner Jack Donovan moved to postpone the wastewater decision for further analysis but was struck down. Most of the commissioners agreed that the new wastewater rate was still low compared to other parts of the nation. "I'll say it tonight, and I'll say it as much as I need to: We pay too little for water," Commissioner Lauren Poe said.

UF Provost Joe Glover announced the new grading scale at Thursday's Faculty Senate meeting. Glover said the scale would be ready by summer A. Minus grades were originally approved by the Senate in December 2006, according to Senate records. Glover According to Alhigator archives, former UF Provost Janie Fouke said in February that the new system would be ready by January. The new grading system won't just add new grades: It will change the value of plus grades as well. For example, a B+, which is currently worth 3.5 grade points, will be worth 3.33 points.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 2008 N ALLIGATOR, 3 STATE NEWS Congress protects student loans By JACQUELYN WEINER Alligator Writer jweiner@alligator.org Although it won't affect UF students, some college students in Florida who worry about securing federal student loans may be able to rest easy for at least another year. A bill that extends by a year the federal government's protection of banks that handle federal student loans is awaiting President Bush's signature. The purpose of the bill is to ensure that college students can obtain federal loans regardless of the state of the national economy. The legislation would not affect UF students because the university uses the Federal Direct Loan Program instead of working through lenders, said Karen Fooks, director of UF Student Financial Affairs. UF opted out of working through lenders in 1993, Fooks said. Florida State University and the University of Central Florida, however, are among the universities that use federal lenders and will be affected by the new legislation. The new measure was approved by the U.S. House of Representatives on Monday and was quickly passed on to the Senate, which voted in favor of the legislation Wednesday, according to the House's Committee on Education and Labor's Web site. The bill extends for another year the authority of Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings to purchase student loans. This allows the government to provide lenders with a steady flow of money so they won't have to turn eligible students away, according to the committee's Web site. The secretary's authority to bail out suffering lenders was originally granted to Spellings through the Ensuring Continued Access to Student Loans Act, which was signed into law in May. So far, no students have reported problems accessing federal student aid, according to the committee's Web site. The legislation is a preventative measure to ensure that qualified students are able to receive federal aid for college. Texas Congressman Ruben Hinojosa emphasized the importance of maintaining sufficient federal student loan money during disctession of the bill Monday before the House of Representatives' vote, according to the Library of Congress' Web Site. Hinojosa is chairman of the House Subcommittee on Higher Education, Lifelong Learning, and Hinolosa Competitiveness and cosponsored the bill. "It would be a tragedy for a student to decide to forego or postpone college because of a fear of not being able to get a federal student loan," he said during House discussions of the bill, according to the library's Web site. Florida Sen. Bill Nelson said in a statement that the legislation is important because it ensures there is enough financial aid available for students who need help paying for college. Fooks said regardless of credit market conditions, UF students should not have any problems obtaining loan money because UF works directly with the government. Between 16,000 and 17,000 UF students pay for their education using direct federal loans, she said. "Schlumberger gave me the training and support to progress beyond my expectations."

4, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 2008 STUDENT LIFE Blood drive uses rivalry By NATHAN DEEN Alligator Contributing Writer For students who donate blood, the idea that they could save a person's life is satisfying enough, but UF freshman Giovanni Oliva feels he has made more of an impact than usual. "I want us to win," Oliva said. "Every person counts." Oliva is one of the donors in a competition between UF and the University of Tennessee that expands their rivalry beyond sports. For the third straight year. the two schools are competing to get the most students to donate blood in a week. Tennessee beat UF by a wide margin the first two years of the competition, but this year, things may change. As of Thursday night, UF took the lead over Tennessee, 1,147 to 1,116 student donors. Life South Community Blood Centers, the sole supplier of blood for all hospitals within the Gainesville region, is doing everything it can to encourage students to donate. Donors receive free snacks, drinks and a T-shirt that reads "I Bleed* Orange and Blue." Emphasizing Tennessee's past domination in the competition may be having an impact. This week is one of Life South's best of the year. "This is a very competitive drive," said Laura Gale Bialeck, a donor recruiter for Life South. "There's definitely an interest in where we are in the competition." Just the words "versus Tennessee" have more students willing to help. "This is a very competitive drive. There's definitely an interest in where we are in the competition." Laura Gale Bialeck donor recruiter for Life South "I want to beat Tennessee any way possible," said Marissa Gainsburg, a UF freshman. Today is the last day for students to donate. Bialeck said that the drive's results could be tallied as early as late afternoon. Business college to offer lecture podcasts in Oct. By KAYLEE MCCALL Alligator Contributing Writer To keep up with highly mobile students, the Warrington College of Business Administration at UF is providing downloadable lectures that students can watch wherever and whenever. Eric Olson,directoroftheUFInformation Technology Support Programs, plans on debuting free podcasts for all online business course lectures in early October. Podcasts are digital audio files that can be accessed through the Internet and downloaded onto a computer or mobile device. Business professors already record lectures as they speak during class and upload them to the college's Internet server. Offering the lectures in podcast form will allow students to download the updated structural content automatically every time they plug their mobile device into iTunes. Olson said students can then access the file and play it as often as they like. He said the previous Windows video format was inconvenient, and now students with iPods will no UF longer have to convert Academics the lecture format to fit their systems. Olson said podcasts could expand to other UF departments but would not replace traditional lectures. Jeramy Gonzalez, a UF zoology senior, said a lecture podcast would make studying easier. "Commuting and waiting between classes takes up a lot of time," Gonzalez said. "But with podcasting lectures, I could watch them between classes or on the bus."

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 2008 N ALLIGATOR, 5 Car crashes into house Harrison Diamond /Alligator Staff A car sits partially embedded in the front wall of a house at 3020 NW 54th Ave. on Thursday morning after it was driven through the yard and into the house. E THE ACCIDENT WAS CAUSED BY A FIGHT, POLICE SAY. The front-seat passenger of a car that crashed into a house in Northwest Gainesville was arrested Thursday morning. The arrest came after police attributed the car accident to a physical dispute between the car's driver and passenger, said Gainesville Police Officer Kelly Weaver, who was on the scene. A woman was driving the car west on Northwest 54th Avenue with her 72-year-old mother in the passenger seat around 11:30 a.m. when the two began to argue, Weaver said. Police reported that the passenger pulled the driver's hair, causing the steering wheel to shift to the right, he said. The car veered off the road and into the house, Weaver said. "It was a very low-speed crash," he said. The car came to a stop in the living room of a home at 3020 NW 54th Ave. while the owners were in the kitchen, Weaver said. "They walked around and saw a car in the house," Weaver said. He said the driver and the owners of the house were not hurt, and the car was still drivable. "They walked around and saw a car in the house." Kely Weaver Gainesville Police Officer The passenger was arrested on charges of domestic battery. She was taken to the hospital in accordance with procedures but did not appear to be injured, Weaver said. -KATIE GALLAGHER Message urges BSU members to interview for Gator Party President to approve future messages Another message urging members of a student organization to register with the Gator Party during interviews for spots in next month's Student Government elections has emerged. A member of the Black Student Union sent a Facebook message that encouraged members to support the Gator Party. It was sent by Naadira Renfroe, the organization's SG liaison. "Everyone is encouraged to come out and slate with the Gator Party," Renfroe's message stated. A similar message was sent by an Indian Student Association member on Tuesday BSU President Courtney Stephenson was quoted in a Wednesday Alligator article as saying that members of a student organization should not be told which party to choose. In an interview Thursday, Stephenson said he was unaware of the message. He said that he stood by his statements in Wednesdays article. "I really regret that it happened, but I did what I could to rectify the situation," he said. As president, Student Stephenson claimed Life responsibility and said only BSU's executive board will be able to send future messages, which must be approved by Stephenson. Meanwhile, Lisa "Turtee" Patel, the ISA treasurer, said in a Wednesday interview that her organization was allowed to tell members to support the Gator Party. Patel, who sent the message, said the party never contacted ISA about funding, which was a motivating factor in Patel's message. "That was a mistake, and we do apologize for that," she said. -LAUREN BAKER eJ~ $2M~ poI*vN TO Ity GENERAL NUTRITION CENTERS 25% OFF any one GNC Product 15 W.

6, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 2008 Editorial The end of this week has been a bit hectic. There hasn't been an open seat in Library West for the past 48 hours, so we've been forced to run mini-marathons around Marston in search of a spot that was somewhat quiet and had contact with an AC vent. It's hard to study in hot, stale air when you've sweated backpack straps onto the shoulders of your T-shirt and the group of girls sitting behind you won't stop cackling about God-knows-what. Thankfully, though, we survived our tests and are being rewarded with the annual match up between our beloved Gators and our rivals up in Knoxville, Tenn. That's enough about us; let's get on with this week's edition of Darts & Laurels To kick things off this week, we'd like to hand a thisis-a-tradition-we-can-stand-by LAUREL to the Great Underwear Dash 8. We can't believe this thing has persisted for eight separate installations, but we're glad it has. Our only real concern is, if the Undie Dash maintains its current momentum, original Dashers will return in 30 years, strip to their unmentionables and participate in the GUD 38. If some of you do plan to dash as 50-something alumni, please be sure to keep running in the meantime. We don't want the police Tasering a group of half-naked old people -think of all the jiggling. Next up, we'd like to send an aren't-gas-prices-badenough-already DART to the jerk who decided to spread a rumor about a gas shortage. We don't know if you were honestly concerned or if you wanted to create some extra weekend business for a Gainesville gas station. The only good to come from the rumor was we all decided we weren't going to drive last weekend, so we stayed home and partied. Thankfully, there was no rumor of a Natty Light shortage. Once again, we'd like to send a we've-come-a-long-waybaby LAUREL to George Starke Jr., the first black student admitted to UP. Thank you for breaking a cruel barrier 50 years ago and changing our lives for the better. Now we'd like to toss a we-are-voting-Republicanbecause-Paris-Hilton-says-Sarah-Palin's-glasses-are-hot DART to anyone who focused on the Alaskan's eyewear rather than her resume. The Editorial Board isn't trying to influence anybody's vote, regardless of accusations against us. We just want to make sure people are paying attention to issues and not whether the candidates wear white after Labor Day. Finally, we've got a D&L doubleheader for you. We'd like to send a where-did-you-all-come-from LAUREL to the UF student body for an above-average turnout for Student Senate party interviewing this week. It's always good to see a constituency show enough initiative to give the idea they truly care who represents them. On the other hand, we are chucking a we-smell-something-fishy-and-possibly-infuriating DART to the Facebook message encouraging student organizations to register under the Gator Party to receive more SG funding. If it turns out that SG functions on a foundation of bribery, then we'll rescind the student body's above-mentioned laurel because compelled participation isn't participation at all -it's just following directions. Being de-laureled puts you immediately into the D&L Hall of Shame, where you get to hang out with Andrew "Don't Dart me, Bro" Meyer. We'know you don't want to be there, and we don't want to put you there. We sincerely hope these shady dealings are 100 percent false. Go Gators, and have a safe weekend. thefl indepedent florida Jessica DaSilva Adam Wynn EDITOR OPINIONS EDITOR Hilary Lehman, Ken Schwencke MANAGING EDITORS The Alligator encourages comments from readers.

People are switching from family sedans with 25 miles per gallon to hybrids with 40 mpg to save fuel. Their actions are supported by the fact that people who drive an average of 12,000 miles per year would save 180 gallons of fuel by exchanging their 25 mpg cars for the 40 mpg hybrids. Just think of the possible savings if all those low mileage vehicles that are on the road today were improved to higher mileage standards. Instead of offering tax breaks for people who buy hybrids, why doesn't the government offer incentives to people who trade in their old gas-guzzlers? Even better, why not just raise the minimum mileage ratings for vehicles in this country? That possibility might be closer to reality than people realize. Last fall, Congress passed a bill that would raise fuel efficiency by 40 percent of what it is to 27.5 mpg for cars and 22.4 mpg for light trucks and SUVs by 2020. It seems pretty fail-safe, except when you look at the body of the bill and discover that if the task of improving fuel efficiency is too arduous, automakers can ask for a waiver of the deadline. One year after its passing, Detroit automakers Chrysler LLC, Ford Motor Co. and General Motors are already asking for a waiver from the 2015 interim standard, which requires a roughly 15 percent increase in fuel efficiency. We're seven years away from the deadline, and automakers have already said they can't meet the standard. Last week, Hyundai Motor Co. said it would meet the entire 2020 mileage requirement by 2015. ng energy problem Jarrod Stern With no grumbling from Toyota Speaking Out Motor Co. or Honda Motor Co. Ltd., I assume they don't find the 2020 deadline too difficult to meet either. So why are American companies requesting the waiver? As the big three automakers are asking for waivers, they are simultaneously requesting more than $50 billion from Congress to achieve the mileage increases that they claim they can't meet anyway. The inconsistency lies in the role of lobbyists and special interest groups in legislation, which is also the reason Congress is in' the mess that it is in the first place. The big three automakers are able to use lobbyists to. persuade members of Congress to lighten bills for the same reason the CEOs of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Lehman Brothers and the like were not held accountable for their foolish handling of other people's money. Presidential election votes aren't the only votes that matter. If the public became aware of the real reasons for high fuel costs, an upheaval could occur to force Congress to actually propose true solutions to the problem rather than offshore oil drilling and weak mileage bills. America needs to wean itself from Persian oil sheiks and Russian oil czars who have mostly anti-American ideals. It's up to you, America. Let Congress know you're aware of its smoke-and-mirrors magic act and you want hard-line action rather than passive wrist slapping. If you don't act, you know politicians won't.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 7 Letters to the Editor Meyer's actions not heroic Andrew Meyer is not a hero. Meyer did not stand face-to-face with tanks in protest of an oppressive government (see Tiananmen Square). He did not lead a march on Washington, D.C. in an effort to gain basic human rights for people (see Martin Luther King Jr.). He did not participate in protests to gain religious freedoms (see Protestant Reformation). These others were heroes. They protested to gain basic rights of equality. What Meyer did do was behave belligerently in what had been a peaceful intellectual discussion. He did throw a temper tantrum when he was politely told to relinquish the microphone. He did avoid several opportunities to conduct himself in a mature fashion as University Police escorted him out. Meyer embar-rassed himself, his family and hi-s school, and he abused his right to free speech. He behaved more like a drunk, visiting fan screaming obscenities than as a protester trying desperately to rally support for a noble cause. He got exactly what he deserved. K.C. Baumert 4EG Racism does not exist in U.S. society Daniel Seco is writing about a problem that doesn't exist. The all-white jury hasn't convicted O.J. Simpson. Even if they do, Seco would have to prove that Simpson is clearly not guilty to have a semi-valid case. Seco is the racist. He's the one writing a column about the jurors' race and assuming, because the jurors are white, they will convict a black man regardless of the facts of the case. Get a life. Write about something that exists. Daniel Seco: the racist drama queen. Ed Kallal 5EG Hand scanners a waste of money At a time of grave financial crisis, record layoffs and severe budget cuts, UF and Student Government have no business allowing the installation of expensive hand scanners in the recreational facilities. Students do not want their money wasted on such technology. As someone who collected signatures for the petition, I am terribly confused by David Knowles' assertion that, "The one thing we've been hearing from students for years is that they don't want to have to bring their Gator 1 cards when they come to work out." Onlyone of the nearly 200 people I spoke to actually expressed interest in such technology. The rest of them thought the idea was ridiculous. The problem could be solved by taking a closer look at Gator 1 cards, asking forgetful students for another form of identification or merely asking the students for their UF ID numbers and addresses. I expect the UF population to overwhelmingly oppose such superfluous spending. However, knowing the school's history, I also suspect that, like the student-run coffee shop and socially responsible investing, our duly cast votes will be subverted. Rory Delaney Rohan 5LS McCain doesn't support troops I opened up the Alligator on Wednesday to find an awful rant by Andrew Fells. I would like to set him straight. First, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's bubble has just burst. Maybe it has something to do with her personal tanning booth or her cutting funding for Alaska's Special Olympics. Although it's nice to say Sen. John McCain has always stood by the troops, maybe you should check his record before making those claims. He voted against the GI Bill, increased funding for veterans' health care, funding a trust fund for military health facilities and funding for counseling services for veterans with mental disorders. Good going, almost as good as how he apparently invented the BlackBerry. Francisco Sotomayor 3EG McCain's voting record consistently bad Andrew Fells' editorial was appalling, as was the decision to publish it. Poorly written and childish, there was no logical structure. It consisted simply of random rants and feelings. When it does try to draw upon evidence, the article simply repeats false accusations and unsubstantiated assertions. To refute Fells' feeble claim that John McCain is stronger than Barack Obama on military matters, McCain voted no on the Health Care for Veterans Amendment, as well as no on an amendment that would have provided money for readjustment counseling, related mental health services and rehabilitative services for veterans with mental illness, post-traumatic stress disorder or substance abuse disorder. As for his character, he left his first wife after she was hurt in a horrible car accident, and the Senate Ethics Committee found that McCain, one of the "Keating Five," exercised poor judgment during the Savings and Loan Crisis of the 1980s. Check your facts, Andrew Fells. Alicia Swift 3EG Guest column Presidential election could determine economic future of U.S. In the past two weeks, the global financial system has seen such chaotic and devastating activity that, as voters, we find ourselves in a critical position to' elect a president who will maneuver us far from the destitution of the Bush administration's policies. Before, one could make a reasonable argument that a vote for Sen. John McCain was at least in the best interest of those with large bank accounts. It was assumed the rich should vote Republican. Now, with the investments of the entire world on thin ice, such an assumption cannot be made. Given the emerging and established evidence of the negligent and failing Bush administration policies, Americans must understand the enormous impact that the state of the global financial system has on them. By no standard is the economic foundation of our nation stable; it is in a state of utter chaos. In case you've been sleeping for the past two weeks, several historic events have taken place in the financial world that will impact the lives of most of the people on this planet. Last week, the government made unprecedented seizures of financial mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Plans were announced Sunday for Merrill Lynch to be sold to avoid bankruptcy .On Monday, investment-banking titan Lehman Brothers declared bankruptcy. Both events caused a flurry of fearful activity on the stock market. The Dow Jones Industrial Lance Legel Average Speaking Out responded by dropping more than 504 points on Monday, which was the greatest one-day drop since the first day of trading after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. On Wednesday, the government gained ownership of 80 percent of the massive insurance company AIG in exchange for an $85 billion loan. Amid ballooning fears encapsulating the global financial system, the Dow Jones plummeted again. nearly 450 points. What does this mean? In historical context, it serves as a potential beckoning to a great financial depression. This decline could rob the value of all our assets through the degradation of the American dollar. We must avoid this downtum at all costs by using the 2008 presidential election to re-chart our nation's economic course. Our continued dependence on fossil fuels serves to threaten our national security while simultaneously perpetuating expensive preemptive wars and permanently scarring our environment. The ecological and financial costs of worsening the effects of global warning via continued investment in the oil industry will serve to economically paralyze our nation in the pursuit of sustaining a modernized industrial economy. This election, when deciding between a candidate funded by the lobbyists responsible for Bush administration policies and a candidate funded by 2.5 million outraged American citizens demanding change in these policies, please choose wisely.

8, ALLIGATOR N FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 2008 County holds hunger summit By KATIE EMMETS Alligator Contributing Writer Poverty and hunger in Alachua County are causing residents to resort to some unusual methods of finding food. "We have elders reporting that they.are Dumpster diving in order to eat at the end of the month when their food stamps runnout," said John Skelly, poverty reduction program manager for the Department of Children and Family Services in Alachua County. Skelly organized the Alachua County Hunger Sumnmit, which drew about 150 people Thursday to the Martin Luther King Jr. Activity Center. Local Skelly said he has observed the poverty probNews lems within the county for the past year. "The biggest situation we are dealing with is hunger," he said. Local organizations, restaurants and grocery stores have excess food they do not use, he said, adding that the summit will be asking the organizations to donate food so volunteers can deliver them. Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan said this is the first time Alachua County has held a Hunger Summit, and it came during a particularly challenging time with dwindling resources. "Only 55 percent of people eligible for food stamps actually receive them," Hanrahan said. The rest of those eligible often don't apply because of limited access to a computer or means of transportation, according to the 2008 Survey on Hunger in Alachua County conducted by DCF in April. Don Winstead, deputy secretary of DCF, said UF is a useful resource to the community. UF has a $4.2 million statewide contract with DCF to aid in helping local communities, Winstead said, and university staff and students provide nutritional education to low income families. Marilyn Baker, a DCF representative, was on-hand to offer information about income limits and the allotment of money for food stamps, which increases every October. "For a one-person household, the amount will rise from $162 to $176 per year," she said. Baker said DCF is informing unemployed residents and those who don't have food for their families about where to go for help. "People that need food stamps should make sure they apply online," she said. "It processes much faster than the paper application." Applicants can track their application's progress online, Baker said, and if they do not get a response within 30 days, they should call to follow up. Everyone who attended the event was treated to a dinner catered by Chutnees and Falafel King that included hummus, chicken; rice and salad. The day's fast was broken with dates and water at 7:35 p.m. following a reciting of "The Sunset Prayer." Imam Siraj Wahhaj, the first Muslim to lead a prayer at the U.S. House of Representatives, spoke to students about the purpose, benefits and power of fasting. Siraj Wahhaj said that man's first sin, as agreed on by people of Christian, Jewish and Muslim religions, was to eat something that was prohibited. Fasting is Imam Siraj Wahhaj speaks at the Ramadan Fast-a-thon sponsored by Islam on Campus in the O'Connell Center on Thursday night. prescribed to Muslims in the Quran, and it will raise both consciousness of God and consciousness of the poor, he said. "One. of the greatest developments of self-control is to control what you put in your mouth," he said to the crowd. Siraj Wahhaj said that if students are able to fast from food, drinks and sexual relations during the daylight of Ramadan, they will continue to have a positive discipline after it is over. "If you can stay away from water during the month of Ramadan, think of how easy it will be to stay away from alcohol," he said. Zafar said Islam on Campus members have asked local businesses for merchandise donations that will be auctioned off closer to the end of Ramadan. The proceeds will go to the St. Francis House, a local emergency food shelter for the homeless. "Last year, we raised about $5,000," Zafar said. "We're looking to raise that amount."

Proeo yur skin. ww,.aad.org -85462.)A0M 500 attend Ramadan Fast-a-thon By KASEY ROBERTS Alligator Contributing Writer The sun went down, and the feast began Thursday as people filled the floor level of the O'Connell Center in honor of Ramadan, the holiest month of the Islamic calendar. The Ramadan Fast-a-thon, hosted by Islam on Campus, was open to people of any religion, and about 500 people attended. Osman Zafar, chairmanof the event, said the organization asked all participants to fast Thursday to experience for one day what Muslims experience the entire month of Ramadan, which takes place during the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. This year, Ramadan spans the month of September. During Ramadan, Muslims fast daily from sunrise to sunset.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 2008 N ALLIGATOR, 9 Survey reports UF classes not challenging enough for student body FACULTY from page 1 plus grades were added at UT in 1974 at the law school and adopted by the rest of UF four years later. The new grading system brings with is an array of side effects, including a possible fluctuations of student grade point averages. It could also affect whether students earn math and writing credits from their classes, Clover said. Florida law states that students must earn a C or higher in a class to earn such credits. Students who take courses pass/ fail, which requires a grade of C or higher to pass, will need to earn higher grades to pass. Eligibility for financial aid and honors status could also be put at risk, Glover said. The new system will require pmfessors to change their syllabuses and UF to modify transcripts and the algorithm it uses to compute GPAs, he said. Student Body President Kevin Reilly, who sponsored a Student Senate resolution in 2006 opposing minus grades, said he is against minus grades because they will lower students' GPAs though students will not be doing anything differently. Chris Snodgrass, a UF English professor who voted in favor of minusgradesin2006,saidminusgrades allow professors to be more precise when gradAdministration ,ts' per formance. Snodgrass said the grades will give students a better idea of how they are doing in each class. According to a study of grades at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, which had plus grades, the average undergraduate GPA dropped from 3.11 to 3.05 the year after minus grades were introduced. But over three years, the average GPA rebounded to a 3.1 before dropping the next year to a 3.08. Eight of the 10 other universities governed by the Florida Board of Governors already have minus grades, according to a survey on the Faculty Senate's Web site. Also at the meeting, UF President Bernie Machen discussed the results of a new student survey that he said poses troubling questions for the quality of education at U. i f \f r 0% ?!OMV isrli )E?

The National Survey of Student Engagement surveyed students at 774 colleges and universities across the country The survey found that UF students were satisfied with their education and experience, but it also showed that UF is not challenging its students as much as its peer universities, Machen said. Machen said UF students reported lower levels of class participation and fewer written assignments than students at peer universities.

Sports FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 19,2008 ALLIGATOR www.aIIigator.org/sports Picks Column SITE: Neyland Stadium, Knoxville, Tenn., (cap. 104,079) KICKOFF: Saturday 3:30 p.m. TV/RADIO: CBS/WRUF AM850 We here at the alligatorSports Brand Picks Column like to remember those who help us become the big freaking studs we are in the journalism community.A year ago, an up-and-coming sophomore from alligatorSports, Mike McCall, went on ESPN's "First Take" against The Daily Beacon (Tennessee's student paper) sports editor Hunter Pavlik. We promise we haven't let McCall anywhere near writing this thing. If you haven't seen the clip on YouTube yet, stop what you're doing and go watch. It should be part of your UF fan packet. Let's just say it spawned this group on Facebook: "Who's Hunter Pavlik? Hunter Pavlik is Mike's bitch." Being the nice, unbiased journalists we are, we certainly have no comment on such thoughts except to say, well -we think so too. Turns out Pavlik is the complete antithesis to McCall -the Tennessee grad is also a fan of Virginia Tech (recently upset by McCall's ECU Pirates) and grew up a huge Duke fan in Durham (Mike also loves UNC and despises all things Blue Devils). But let the record show Pavlik was a good sport in recounting the events of a year ago. He seems like a jolly fellow and may very well be more successful than all of us. Kidding, of course. Anyhow, we caught up with Pavlik this week and found him up in Washington, D.C. He graduated from Tennessee in May and moved to the nation's capital to follow his girlfriend, who is going to law school at American. "I haven't got anything permanent yet. I'm freelancing for a Maryland paper back and forth," Pavllk said. "But I've had a bunch of interviews lately, and I think something permanent is going to come up soon." Either way, it looks liIke the man found himself a woman who can be the SEE PICKS, PAGE 18 UF FOOTBALL Gators get set for first test against Vols By MIKE McCALL Alligator Staff Writer mmccal@alligator.org Forget about those other two games. Hawaii and Miami were merely warm-ups. Lose the thought that the defense might have improved since last season, and hold your judgment about UF's running backs or the play of quarterback Tim Tebow. The No. 4 Gators (2-0) have a clean slate, and Saturday's matchup at Tennessee won't look anything like those first two contests. Players on both sides will fly to the ball faster, there will likely be more shots downfield in the passing game, and Percy Harvin will be "cut loose." This is UF's first step toward the goal of a Southeastern Conference title. "This is basically another opener," cornerback Joe Haden said. "SEC is definitely what you get pumped up about." Some of the excitement has been scaled back since the Volunteers (1-1) aren't ranked the first time in the series that has been true since 1984but expect a different look from Tennessee than the squad that lost to UCLA in overtime two weeks ago. And, with the crowd on their side, don't look for the Volunteers to limp out of this game like they Harrison Diamond / Alligator Staff UF linebacker Brandon Spikes tries to get past the block of Miami tackle Jason Fox during the Gators' 26-3 win against Miami in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium on Sept. 6. did after the 59-20 thrashing in doesn't expect Tennessee to give from last year with the way we Gainesville last season. up this year. beat up on them," Spikes said. "I While UF linebacker Brandon "We know they're going to know they are going to be pretty Spikes said, "I know they're be ready to play, they're at home jacked up." really not as tough as us," he and they're looking for revenge SEE FOOTBALL, PAGE 18 Surgery can t stop cross country runner Criscione T he tailgaters won't be there. There will not be tens of thousands of people ready to scream. The dew will be fresh. The sun will have come up an hour earlier. Jeremy Criscione doesn't mind. The senior cross country star holds school records in both the 5-mile and 8K and is one of the odds-on favorites for Saturday's Mountain Dew Invitational, and yet many students don't even know his name. But for him, this sure beats watching from the sidelines. Criscione had hernia surgery on Aug. 3, 2007, causing him to miss last season's opening meet, the Gators' only home competition. He missed 10 or 11 days of practice. But the season that would follow inspired confidence that may have been a blessing in disguise. He remembers worPhil Kegler trying about being fully Phil on the Hill healed during his first pkegler@alligator.org workout. Then there were worries about his first race, the Auburn Invitational. All Criscione did was turn in a career-best time in the 8K. He felt the time could have been misleading by a forgiving course. The worries were unfounded. The senior broke a 14-year-old school record in the 8K the following week, and all the concerns were forgotten. But Criscione knew a little differently. He could still feel the stitches and mesh from the surgery. Jabs of pain shot through him occasionally. "You always question if it came back or if something tore again." It didn't, and doctors tell him now there's a negligible chance of it recurring. Sometimes he still feels a pang or two but nothing compared to the loneliness felt at last year's NCAA meet. E N E While the UF women qualified as a team for last year's NCAA Championships, the men did not. So as Criscione lined up at the start -he qualified as an individual -he felt the difference of having no pack to hunt with.

18, ALLIGATOR E FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 2008 UF faces former RB coach Drayton FOOTBALL, from page 17 -Everyone seems to be in agreement on where this game will be won or lost. The team with more rushing yards has taken 16 of the last 18 meetings, and the Gators have dominated in that department recently. The Volunteers' rushing totals the last three times were 66, minus-11 and 37 yards, and they haven't broken a run for more than 10 yards against UF since 2005. "They are a tailback-oriented offense, and (senior running back Arian Foster) is really good," coach Urban Meyer said. "So getting pressure on the quarterback is going to be critical, but I think what's more critical is stopping that run." Tennessee running backs coach Stan Drayton might throw a hitch in Meyer's plans, as he served at the same position with UF for the past three seasons. Meyer said he isn't worried about Drayton giving the Volunteers any advantage in terms of knowing the Gators' plays, and his decision to move to a conference opponent doesn't bother Meyer. "It's just a rival," he said. "I want everyone to better their family and do what they have to do, but that's part of the deal. I'm fine, we just have to move on. God bless him and good luck." While some of the hype for this game may be lost, it still carries enormous significance. Since the SEC split into divisions, either UF or Tennessee has won the East 13 out of 16 times, -and the loser of the battle between the two teams has only come back to make the SEC Championship three times -a feat the Volunteers accomplished last year. The game will also give the defense a chance to prove it can be a strong point instead of a weakness. The unit -especially the secondary -played well in the first two games, but everything will be a little tougher now. "The speed is different from any other team. Linemen are faster, and it's like everybody trains just to run fast," linebacker Brandon Hicks said. "It's faster than the regular pace of a college game. People talk about it, and you don't really notice it or feel it until you're actually in it." PHIL, from page 17 "You don't ever want to get on a starting line with 250 other runners, and you're the only one from your team," he said. Todd Morgan has stepped up as the main coach leading the cross country team this fall, and he has seen a lot of development in his star senior. "He's just really got his head down, showing up every day, clocking in," Morgan said. "We learned a lot with Jeremy last year." It's a lesson Morgan and Criscione want this team to take to heart -it's not how you start, it's how you finish. During Criscione's freshman and sophomore years, the Gators peaked midway through the season, and their nd-season rankings were always higher than their finishes at the NCAA meet. Last season, the team did not qualify for nationals. While some of this can be attributed to pushing too early in the season, there's another factor at play here. Cross Country races usually come in two varieties for men -8K and 10K. UF runs in 8K races all the way until NCAA Regionals and Championships. Those last two meets -by far, the most important -are 10K-length. This year is Criscione's last chance to have a successful finish to his career. Then again, he just finished up another chase in his life -looking for the 1999 Walt Disney documentary/drama "Endurance." The senior had watched a part of the movie many years ago but was unable to find a copy to finish it. The trail came to an end Wednesday when Criscione borrowed a copy from his coach. With that complete, the pair will turn back to the unsolved mystery of how to get the Gators to produce at the NCAA Championship meet. Similar success seems likely. PICKS, from page 17 bread-winner, and we certainly respect that here. Pavlik admits he wasn't surprised by last year's outcome on the field and joked he hopes the Volunteers "can keep them within 30" this time around. As for the other nationally televised beatdown -his showdown with McCall on "First Take" -Pavlik said he held back on trash-talking because, well, there isn't much to trash-talk about for Tennessee. "You guys had just come off national championships in football and basketball, and I didn't really want to throw any Pat Summitt stuff out there. .I mean, I wanted UT to win and everything, but in the back of my head, logic is telling me that Florida is probably going to cream us." 'As to his pick for this weekend, here's what he had to say: "There's no way I'm putting anything in your paper that says Florida is going to win. We should've beat you guys two years ago in Knoxville. UT kicks the late field goal to win." Pavlik had this final message for UF students: "Be ready to see a lot of cornerback ) Eric Berry and (wide receiver) Gerald Jones. .If UT wins, it's because of those guys and seriously -this time we're going to rush for more than 50 yards against you guys." We couldn't make this up if we tried. Now, on to the picks! In sole possession of first place with a 17-3 record is Phil "The thought of the Tampa Bay Rays in the World Series gives me a raging erection" Kegler, who went a whopping 10-0 two weeks ago and celebrated by broadcasting it on his Facebook status and renting a chick flick. We cannot confirm any chicks were in the room with him. In second with a 15-5 mark on the year is Assistant Sports Editor Evan "I live for Alligator travel" Drexler, who was comparing the pros and cons of the Cincinnati and Charlotte airports for a possible layover on a flight to the Arkansas game. Hey, I hear they both have big windows and loud planes. Checking in at a respectable third with a 14-6 record is Sports Editor Brian "'T' for Troll" Steele, whose Harry Potter fanaticism allowed him to remember the grading scale for a fictional set of exams in the office the other night. If he could just remember what spell Harry cast in Chapter 34 of book four, he'd have a girlfriend in no time. Holding on in fourth place with a 13-7 record is Karl "Orange Juice costs $2.50?" Hyppolite, who asked that very question while on the phone with his wife Thursday afternoon. Ah, the enthralling conversations that come with married life. What's next week's topic, Karl? The economy? Lace curtains? In dead-ass last place with a piss-poor 10-10 record is Mike "Eight-hour road trips mean we get to listen to Talib Kweli's entire library" McCall, whose talentless intramural football team will win exactly zero games this season. He'd be better off not getting his hopes up for a championship and quit now -kind of like East Carolina.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 19 UF SOCCER Long road trip, tough opponents await No. 16 Gators By BOBBY CALLOVI miles for UF of the trip to Boulder and back. a weekend off in the middle of ing to have to (talk to each other Alligator Writer It won't be the first time this To try and make sure the team the season," Burleigh said. on the field)," senior Ameera bco~aie gsata season the Gatnr' travel nut west was fully rested, UF took a flight If the Gators are to win on Abdullah said. "There's not aoMost people -traveling from Florida to Oregon are going to want to stay for more than a couple of days before making the return trip. The Gators weren't listening to that thought process. For No. 16 UF, the long journey will just be a business trip, as they head to the Pacific Northwest to take on No. 5 Portland tonight. Then, they will catch the late flight back to Gainesville for their match against No. 25 Kansas on Sunday. The trip will log over 5,950 for a Friday match and return back for a game on Sunday. On opening weekend, the Gators headed out to Boulder, Colo., for a game against Colorado then to Boca Raton to play Florida Atlantic. They were 1-0-1 on the trip. But even that trip wasn't nearly as long as this one will be. Freshman midfielder Tahnai Annis hopes the previous experience will help them be more prepared for the match. "It felt like my legs were just drained and a lot of energy was taken from all of us," Annis said Wednesday morning so it could have Thursday to recover from the ride. "it felt like my legs were just drained and a lot of energy was taken from all of us." Tahnal Annis UF freshman midfielder UF coach Becky Burleigh even gave her team the weekend off after last Friday's 2-0 victory against No. 23 Illinois to prepare for this weekend's difficult schedule. "I can't remember ever having the road, they'll have to shoot a better percentage than they did against the Illini. UF had 12 total shots, but only six of them were on goal in the 2-0 win. Besides the 6-1 demolition against Nebraska, UF hasn't scored more than 2 goals in a game. So far this season, Portland has been near-perfect, tallying five 'shutouts in seven games, defeating defending national champions Southern Cal and averaging four goals per game. "Against a team with as much talent as Portland has, we are going to be room not to talk because that's how we are going to win the game." While UF will probably need its best game of the season to defeat Portland, it will have to then quickly turn its attention to Kansas, another ranked foe WF must face. The Jayhawks are coming off their first loss and will already be in Florida when the Gators get back. Kansas takes on Central Florida on Friday. A victory against Portland would extend UF's winning streak to four. Friends become foes as UF opens SEC play with UGA N KRISTYJAECKEL PLAYED IN HIGH SCHOOL WITH UGA'S ANN DYLLA. By KYLE MAISTRI Alligator Writer kmiistrieaigsiir.org The Gators' freshmen will have their first brush with Southeastern Conference play tonight, but that doesn't mean the match will be entirely foreign for a few first-year players. When No. 11 UF (6-1) squares off with Georgia (7-4) tonight in the O'Connell Center, there will be a couple familiar faces on the other side of the court. UF redshirt freshman Kristy Jaeckel played high school volleyball in Colorado with Georgia's starting middle blocker, Ann Dylla -the team's second leading blocker (1.07 per set). "It's always fun to see people that you know from back home out here," said Jaeckel, who plans to go out to dinner with her old friend while she's in town. Freshmen Colleen Ward and Kelly Murphy played on the same Illinois-based club volleyball team with Georgia libero Carla Tietz, who has logged the secondhighest dig-per-set total on the team (3.17). Ward said she. hasn't kept in touch with Tietz since coming to college and added it's a weird feeling seeing an old teammate on the other side of the net. When the freshman class takes the court and kicks off a new conference slate, history would indicate that they will become familiar with something else: winning. In the 17 years coach Mary Wise has been at the helm, the Gators' SEC success can only be described as utter domination. UF's collective record over that time span is 294-9, and 11 times the Gators have run through the conference schedule without a single slip-up. On the way to winning games at a 97 percent clip, six teams in the conference -Georgia, Alabama, b ^ Kentucky, Mississippi, Mississippi State and Auburn -have never Volleyball defeated Wise. If the Gators are able to defeat the Bulldogs tonight, Wise will improve to 44-0 against the team from Athens. Despite all the impressive statistics and tradition of mowing down SEC competition, Wise noted the improvement across the conference. "This is not your mother's SEC," she said. "This is a very different-looking league." Wise said every team in the league has a go-to player that is capable of carrying her team to a victory on any given night, which will keep the league more balanced from top to bottom. "We're all an ankle sprain away from being in the middle of the pack," she said. In preparing for the Bulldogs, the Gators have been focusing on senior outside hitter Maria Taylor. Taylor comes into the matchup averaging more than four kills per set. UF will have to key in on Taylor -a player Wise called the early favorite for SEC Player of the Year -in order to prevent their second consecutive loss. Wise and many of the players said they learned more from losing to Colorado State than they would have from a win, and they hope to use that to get better and raise t &ir game against Georgia. "We know that we can come out and be a way better team," Jaeckel said. 30ATA Sa-. a N IGHT SEPTEMBER 19 9@fY@M ;F 1 Free for UIF students with Gator I ID RUB -,,,,,,,o ,,,,, oD"*t" n trtaamwt .Pe h event ios visit and at the ENCOUNTERS AT THE END OF THE WORLD & OUTSOURCED HIPP CINEMA.
