UF quarterback Tim Tebow tries to break free from Tennessee linebacker Ellix Wilson during a pass rush in the
first quarter of the Gators' 30-6 win against Tennessee in Neyland Stadium in Knoxville, Tenn., on Saturday.


Gators blow

past Vols

By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Staff Writer
edrexler@alligator.org

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. One
hundred thousand orange
shirts, and they were all in the
wrong hue.
No. 4 UF's game against
Tennessee was a laugher 11
minutes in, and the crowd in
a filled-to-the-rafters Neyland
Stadium had nothing to cheer
about after the player introduc-
tions.
It was 17-0 so fast, the fans
didn't know what to do with
themselves.
The Gators (3-0) carried
early momentum with them
for the rest of the game, claim-
ing a 30-6 victory against the
Volunteers (1-2).
After Brandon James' 78-
yard touchdown punt return


late in the first quarter, no
amount of singing "Rocky
Top" was going to bring the
Volunteers back into the game.
"It just kind of takes the
crowd out of it," UF coach
Urban Meyer said of the re-
turn.
Gators quarterback Tim
Tebow spent time last week
talking about how important
momentum is in college foot-
ball when explaining how
Ohio State lost its game against
Southern Cal. On Saturday, the
impact of momentum was crys-
tal clear, and the Gators should
have no trouble carrying the
effects of this giant victory
into next week's home contest
against Mississippi.
"I'm starting to like this
team a little bit," Meyer said.
"I'm not going to say a lot, but I
like this teari a little bit because
they know how to practice and
are acting very mature right
now."
The deflation of Neyland
was complete when Tennessee

ELECTION 2008

Obama visits Jacksonville


By MAGGIE LAWRENCE
Alligator Contributing Writer

At a rally in Jacksonville on Saturday,.
Democratic presidential nominee Barack
Obama took aim at investment bankers,
insurance companies and high-salaried
citizens, declaring they could spare some
change.
"The events of this week have shown
that the stakes of this election could not be
higher; they could not be clearer," Obama
said. "We are in the midst of the most seri-
ous financial crisis in generations."
The Illinois senator addressed a crowd
of about 20,000 on Saturday afternoon at
downtown Jacksonville's Metropolitan
Park.
About 12,000 people filled the park


UF scored

Saturday as the

to capacity, according to the Jacksonville
Sheriff's Office.
About 8,000 more were turned away
from the park more than half an hour before
the speech was scheduled to begin.
Those denied entry gathered around
loudspeakers placed on the outskirts of the
park.
Two small planes circled overhead, drag-
ging banners reading "Florida Is McCain &
Palin Country" and "Raising Taxes Is Not
Patriotic."
Obama seemed impressed by the turn-
out.
"I'm amazed we got such a big crowd,"
he said at the beginning of his address. "Are
there any Gator fans in the house? ... I don't

The 90-degree weather on Sunday
forced people to find a spot in the
shade as they stood and sweated in
the heat waiting to hear from one

At least a dozen were carted off by

Supreme Court decision could increase construction


E CITY CAN NOW FUND
COMMERCIAL PROJECTS.

By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Staff Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org

A reversed Florida Supreme
Court decision could mean more
construction projects around
Gainesville.
The court reversed the de-
cision Thursday on Strand v.


Escambia County, a case that
had outlawed a common practice
used to encourage developers to
build in more expensive areas,
such as Gainesville's downtown
area.
The practice offers developers
funds from property taxes over
many years, without requiring a
voter referendum.
Before they were declared il-
legal, the city was in the process
of offering these long-term agree-


ments to luxury condo project
University Corners and apart-
ment complex University House.
Now that the case has been
overturned, the city
Local may decide to renew
News its offers.
Frank Darabi, a
partner on University Corners,
said he has not spoken to city of-
ficials but is excited to hear about
the court decision.
"That's what we've been wait-


ing for," Darabi said.
Construction on University
Corners, at the corner of 13th
Street and West University
Avenue, has been at a standstill.
Construction at University
House has been completed, but
developers are still awaiting
funding.
The Community
Redevelopment Agency pro-
posed Monday that the city offer
the developer a one-year funding


contract renewable over the next
15 years.
Since the reversal, city spokes-
man Bob Woods said Gainesville
offered Friday to renegotiate a
15-year agreement but has not
heard back from University
House representatives.
Woods said officials were
pleased to hear of the reversal.
"Sometimes it's hard to make
the playing field level unless you
have certain tools," he said.


Obama criticizes McCain's tax breaks


OBAMA, from page 1

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama smiles Saturday during a
pause in his speech at a campaign rally at Metropolitan Park in Jacksonville.


know if ya'll are aware there's football today."
During the 30-minute speech, which was
delayed more than an hour because of traffic,
Obama criticized Republican candidate John
McCain's support for fewer financial regula-
tions and tax breaks for those making more
than $250,000 a year.
He said such deregulation is the cause of
recent investment bank collapses and could
not be expected to hold up any better for health
insurance companies.
"I will cut taxes for 95 percent of all work-
ing families," Obama said. "If you make less
than a quarter-million dollars a year is that
you? you will not see your taxes increase
one dime."
Filup Molina, an English senior at UF who
attended the rally, said he hoped that he could
one day tell his children he not only voted for


Barack Obama, but saw him in person.
After waiting in the heat past Obama's
scheduled appearance time, Molina said he
was glad to see that the candidate jogged from
his bus to the stage.
"I thought to myself, 'Here's a chance for
him to show that he's not like the other peo-
ple,'" Molina said. "That's just a very subtle
sign to show people that
he was hopeful and spir-
Elections ited even though people
2008 were passing out."
Florida remains a
battleground state for McCain and Obama.
Jacksonville was Obama's last stop in a whirl-
wind tour of Florida, in which he also spoke in
Coral Gables and Daytona Beach.
"Florida is close, but Florida is always
close," Florida Sen. Bill Nelson said before
Obama took the stage in Jacksonville. "The
person who wins Florida is going to win the
presidency."

Party releases platform


* STUDENTS CAN EDIT GOALS.

By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Staff Writer
ksanders@alligator.org '

The Orange and Blue Party released
its platform for public input Sunday, but
some of the party's ideas could be modi-
fied by the time the Student Government
election arrives.
Some of the platform points, which
include switching UF's e-mail service pro-
vider to Gmail and implementing online
voting in SG elections, will be familiar to
students who voted in spring, but a few
ideas are new.
The party's platform is available as a
wiki, so students can edit the platform and
share their ideas. The platform is linked to
from the party's Web site:
www.orangeandblueparty.com.
Orange and Blue Party President Sam
Miorelli said a new idea that came up in
the party's meeting last week was to make
STD testing available to students for free.
Miorelli said there are a lot of resources
in Alachua County that offer free and
reduced-price STD testing, but student ac-
cess to those places is limited because they
are not on campus.
The party also supports creating a com-
mittee consisting of students, faculty and
alumni to advise UF about where to invest
its endowment. The party also wants UF
to join the Worker Rights Consortium to
ensure Gator and UF apparel is not pro-


duced by exploited workers. Miorelli said
his party supports Universities Allied for
Essential Medicines, which aims to make
new drugs developed by UF affordable.
"These are things that Student
Government needs to put a strong and of-
ficial student voice behind," he said.
He said the party aims to cut down on
wasteful spending by enlisting a third-
party audit of SG's multi-million dollar
budget, which is paid by students through
Activity and Service fees.
"We don't feel like many students,
including us, re-
Student ally trusthow Student
Government Government has been
spending the money,"
Miorelli said.
Another initiative calls for the creation
of a student committee to oversee en-
tertainment selections for Gator Growl,
which is billed as the world's largest stu-
dent-run pep rally.
This year, comedian Jon Reep of NBC's
"Last Comic Standing" and Steve Miller
Band will perform.
Miorelli said he has not been im-
pressed with the acts in the past few years,
which last year included comedian Frank
Caliendo of "MADtv."
"When we've got a bad impersonation
of the president, and FSU has Stephen
Colbert, you know that there's something
wrong," he said.
Gator Party President Luis Nobriga
said his party's platform would likely be
released at the end of the week.


Band enters ESPN contest


By CAROLYN TILLO
Alligator Contributing Writer

Football is the traditional UF
moneymaker, but it's the marching
band that recently earned $5,000
filming a spot for ESPN.
The money was the result of a.
contest to promote the DVD release
of "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom
of the Crystal Skull."
ESPN and Paramount Pictures
designed the contest, called "The
Battle of the Bands and the Quest
for the Crystal," which included six
other marching band performances
from across the country and a
chance at an extra $25,000.
The contest is built on a com-
parison between the crystal national
championship trophy and the crys-
tal skull, said Joe Knaus, manager
of co-marketing at ESPN, in a phone
interview.
Knaus said the band's perfor-
mances of "Raiders March," the
movie's theme, will be posted on
ESPN's Web site.
Fans can vote daily from Sept. 29
through Oct. 10 for the performance


they want to win.
The bands competing come from
UF, Louisiana State University,
Auburn University, Clemson
University, The University of Texas
at Austin, the University of Southern
California and the University of
Georgia, all considered to be con-
tenders for the 2009 BCS National
Championship Game trophy.
"It's a great honor, certainly, to
be considered with the other
schools because they all have
great bands."
John M. Watkins Jr.
director, the Fightin' Gator Marching Band


"It's a great honor, certainly, to be
considered with the other schools
because they all have great bands,"
said John M. Watkins Jr., director of
the "Pride of the Sunshine" Fightin'
Gator Marching Band.
UF's marching band will not
know if its preparation and partici-
pation paid off until the winner is
announced on Oct. 11.

AROUND GAINESVILLE

Latino festival offers music, food


Salsa music blared from speakers and couples danced
in front of the stage at the seventh annual Downtown
Latino Festival.
About 3,000 people attended the free event Saturday at
the recently renamed Bo Diddley Community Plaza, said
Wilfredo Melendez, the director of the festival and presi-
dent of the Chamber of Hispanic Affairs.
"We take the opportunity every year to celebrate
Hispanic culture in our community," Melendez said.
The event featured live music from acts includ-
ing Umoja Orchestra, Estamos Unidos and Mariachi
International.
Food vendors from local churches sold Hispanic food
to raise money for charities, while clothing and jewelry
Stands sold items from Latin American countries.
Harvest of Hope Foundation, a local nonprofit orga-


nization that raises funds to aid migrant workers, ran a
booth at the festival to raise awareness.
We take the opportunity every year to cel-
ebrate Hispanic culture in our community."
Wilfredo Melendez
president of the Chamber of Hispanic Affairs

Jorge Pino, a UF graduate student from Panama, said
he happened to walk past the gathering and decided to
stay a while.
"It's very cool to see that there are a lot of different
Hispanic cultures represented here," Pino said.

Revisions satisfy Orange and Blue


* TRUSTEES VOTE TODAY.
Members of the Orange and Blue
Party, who have made controversial
revisions to UF's Student Conduct
Code a major part of its agenda in
recent weeks, said they are happy
with the final version of the changes,
which were released Thursday.
The changes include a ban on
common source containers, such as
kegs and beer balls, and activities
that encourage excessive, rapid con-
sumption of alcohol, such as drinking
games, "on campus, in the housing of


any University of Florida organiza-
tion or group, or in connection with a
University activity," according to the
code revision.
Cain Norris, an Orange and Blue
Party candidate for District B in the
upcoming
UF election,
Administration said he the
new regula-
tion contains the university's jurisdic-
tion to campus and university events.
The Board of Trustees' Educational
Policy and Strategy Committee
will vote on the changes in a tele-
conference at 2 p.m. today. The full

ly stopped collecting signatures for its
petition, which opposed a previous
version of the changes. The petition
had over 200 signatures, he said.
But Miorelli said the fight's not
over yet.
"We feel like its important for us
not to let our guard down on this un-

Editorial


Plus Side

Minus grades not the

end of the world

All this talk about minus grades is much ado about
nothing.
We tried to convince ourselves that this is some
evil administrative policy set to screw up our grade point av-
erages and financial aid, and our only course of action would
be to revolt or walk out on our classes. We would look like
BAMFs street cred attained.
Turns out, we can't really justify getting all riled up for
something that ultimately doesn't change how or why we do
our work. Minus grades really aren't the end of the world.
In one study, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's aver-
age GPA only dropped from 3.11 to 3.05 the year the school
implemented minus grades. That's only six hundredths of a
point. Three years later the average had bumped back up to
3.08.
Sorry to say it, but we aren't about to lose any sleep about
such a small difference.
If UF's minus grade trend follows that of Nebraska, most
of our GPAs are going to sink a bit within the next year. For
those of you who will be graduating within the next three or
four semesters, that means you probably won't be around to
see UF's collective GPA rebound. Sucks to be you, nerds.
Crying about it isn't going to do anything, though, so
don't. Minus grades aren't the cause of the Apocalypse. If
anything, they should serve as motivation for you to actually
get up and go to your first and second period classes, rather
than hanging out on your pillow top with your snooze but-
ton.
Besides, your grades will always reflect the amount of
work you actually did. It's corny, we know, but it's also true.
So suck it up and skip '80s night in favor of Club West.
Rick Springfield and The Outfield aren't going anywhere.


Opinions


ALLIGATOR
www.alligator.org/opinion


If you've lived in
Gainesville for the
past few years, you've
grown accustomed to
constant construction
work. We know we have.
It just wouldn't be the same
to sleep through an entire
night without hearing a
construction worker barking
at one of his coworkers over
the sound of a concrete-oblit-
erating jackhammer.
The only way this situ-
ation could be more fun is
if it took place just outside
our windows a few minutes
before sunrise. We love to be
woken up at 5:45 a.m. when
we don't have class for an-
other five hours.
That's why the Editorial
Board is excited to hear
the Florida Supreme Court
reversed a decision that pro-
hibited the city from funding
development in expensive
areas, such as downtown.
Now Gainesville can of-


fer developers incentives
- money to build in more
crowded areas.
And you can join us in
our lack of sleep.
With any luck, this deci-
sion reversal will allow land
developers to start throwing
together new apartment
complexes at the speed of
light.

Students have stake in SG election


they're back. Equipped with new fliers, slogans,
T-shirts and platforms, Student Government par-
ties are back en masse and yearning for our votes.
Every fall and spring semester, UF students are over-
whelmed by party volunteers and ads trying to swing
every Gator's vote.
Unfortunately, most of the time these pleas fall on
deaf ears. Last spring, 8,129 total ballots were cast for
student candidates and referendum questions.
This number may sound like an impressive amount
of voters, but let's put it in context. The UF Office of
Institutional Planning and Research reports that more
than 51,000 students attend UF. This means about 16
percent of UF students use their right to vote for their
student representatives.
As the state's flagship institution, this is simply un-
acceptable. Even if students feel disconnected in rela-
tion to the local, state or national legislative system, the
same should not be true for how they feel about their
school.
There are two reasons why you should go out to
the polls on Oct. 7 and 8 to cast a ballot for your fellow
Gators.
The first is the money. SG has a total budget of $13.6
million that will be dished out next year.
You pay into this SG slush fund when you pay your
student activities fee each semester, so you, too, have a
stake in it.
This money gets directly funneled to us through sev-
eral different mechanisms.
SG funds dozens of student groups such as Accent
- and divvies money out to the Reitz Union and the
Recreational Sports Department.


Kyle Robisch The Cartel and Yung Joc con-
Speaking Out cert that you enjoyed last week-
end? It was paid for by Student
Government Productions.
The second reason everyone should vote is that SG's
actions and policies affect us in concrete ways.
A strong Student Senate can stand up against unfair
university policies, and the student body president sits
on the Board of Trustees. SG helps plan transportation
regulations and fund upkeep of the Reitz Union and
Southwest Recreation Center. And remember those
dreaded hand scanners that nobody wants? The elec-
tion is the place to vote on a referendum against them.
In his Gettysburg Address, Abraham Lincoln stated,
"that government of the people, by the people and for
the people, shall not perish from the earth."
We have the right to hold our leaders accountable,
and we have the right to decide who represents us.
Fed up with Student Government? Vote.
Support the current leadership? Vote.
Whether you support the Gator Party, Orange and
Blue Party, Student Party or independent candidates,
you have a reason to vote in the SG election.
SG affects our pocketbooks, transcripts and ability to
throw pingpong balls into Solo cups every Friday and
Saturday night.
Each party offers both a vastly different platform
and overall direction for our university, and it would be
wise for all Gators to pay attention and vote.

Next president won't solve economy
This is a response to Friday's column
"Presidential election could determine eco-
nomic future of U.S." /
While Mr. Legel correctly points out that
the U.S..financial system is in turmoil, the
solution he proposes does little to address
the issues facing the economy.
The next president will not solve our
financial crisis.
In my opinion, the root of the problem
lies in how we perceive our economic sys-
tem. Our Founding Fathers believed in free
and open markets and opposed any form of
socialism or government control over such
markets.
Today, our government has been under-


mining these principles by sele
ing out corporations that the bu
Washington deem essential to t
our financial system.
Whatever happened to
Darwinism and survival of the

Marine's courage, sacrifice deserve highest possible honor


L ast week, Secretary of
Defense Robert Gates de-
cided that Sgt. Rafael Peralta
would not be awarded the Medal
of Honor. Instead, Gates decided
that he should be awarded the
Navy Cross.
For those who have never heard
of Peralta, he was a Marine who
took part in Operation Phantom
Fury in the city of Fallujah, Iraq,
during November 2004.
While leading a patrol into a
house Nov. 15, he encountered a
group of insurgents and was shot


several times in the face and chest.
During the fight, one of the at-
tackers threw a grenade at the group
of Marines, and, despite his wounds,
Peralta was able to grab the grenade
and pull it up to his chest before it
exploded, saving the lives of his fel-
low Marines.
Both the Marine Corps and the
Secretary of the Navy pushed for
Peralta to be awarded the Medal
of Honor. Gates decided the Navy
Cross was more appropriate.
Many speculate the reason for
this decision was that Peralta used


Edgar to be an il-
Rodriguez legal immi-
Speaking Out grant and, if
awarded the
medal, a po-
litical firestorm might ensue.
Whatever the reason, I think it is
disgraceful that he was not awarded
the medal. The Navy Cross is a great
honor the Marine Corps does not be-
stow lightly. Peralta dearly met the
criteria for the Medal of Honor.
Thankfully, Peralta's family and
friends refused to accept that he be
. shortchanged for his bravery. They


are still trying to see that Peralta
receives the honor he deserves as
are several members of Congress.
I knew Peralta. I was with him in
Iraq, and I know firsthand that the
tales of his bravery and courage are
not exaggerated. If anything, they
have been understated.
He didn't have to be in Fallujah
leading the way on Nov. 15. He
could have taken the easy route and
sat behind a desk, and no one would
have been the wiser. He volunteered
to be there because he wanted to
serve his country in the most dif-


ficult way possible.
He may not have been born in
the United States, but Peralta loved
his adopted country more than most
native-born Americans do.
Regardless of your views about
the Iraq war, acts of selflessness like
Peralta's must be properly acknowl-
edged. I hope he receives the recog-
nition he deserves and is able to take
his place among the Medal of Honor
recipients who have given their lives
for their country

GPD proposes security charges for visiting candidates


By ASHLEY HEMMY
Alligator Writer

Gainesville officials are prepar-
ing for potential visits from politi-
cal candidates by deciding on the
most cost-efficient way to protect
them.
At a City Commission meeting
Thursday, Gainesville Police Chief
Norman Botsford proposed a plan


to make security costs more con-
sistent during visits from political
or public figures during election
season.
Botsford proposed that GPD
charge important figures for secu-
rity to and from events.
During each event, the owner
of the facility would be responsible
for paying for security, which could
be provided by the police.


Security fees
for GPD are cur-
rently set at $49
per officer per
hour, city docu-
ments stated.
The proposal
Kameg was sent to the
committee for
further discussion.
The question of consistency


stemmed from 2004, when
Democratic vice presidential nomi-
nee John Edwards and President
George W. Bush, who was seeking
re-election, visited Gainesville.
While one of them was not
charged for security, the other
was asked to pay, Mayor Pegeen
Hanrahan said at the meeting.
With another election approach-
ing, Gainesville should be prepared


for visits from political figures,
GPD Lt. Keith Kameg said.
It was brought up at the meeting
that many cities don't have policies
on political security.
Kameg said safety for political
figures is an important issue.
"We live in a country of divided
beliefs," Kameg said. "When be-
liefs are considered wrong, danger
could be involved."


Campaign against sexual assault to launch Tuesday


* VICTORY OVER VIOLENCE WILL
OFFER FREE SELF-DEFENSE CLASS.

BY BROOKE ARONOFF
Alligator Contributing Writer

Victory Over Violence, a UF student
organization that hosts the production of
"The Vagina Monologues" annually, is
hosting RAINN Day, an annual campaign
created by the Rape, Abuse & Incest


National Network to stop sexual assault on
college campuses.
"'The Vagina Monologues' is very effec-
tive in getting the message out about sexual
assault, but we wanted to get involved in
aif even bigger way this year," said Jackie
Azis, president of Victory Over Violence.
The organization, which provides a
network of support for those who have
been affected by domestic, sexual or dating
violence, hopes to raise awareness among
students by participating in RAINN Day.


Even though the event is Thursday,
the group is hosting events in honor of
the day starting Tuesday and concluding
with a discussion panel about
global and domestic violence
uent and women's rights on Oct.
f 9. Other events include a free
one-hour self defense class
for up to 30 women Wednesday in the
Community Services Division building and
a movie screening Thursday night at the
Civic Media Center.


Victory Over Violence will ask for dona-
tions of $3 to $5 to watch the movie and will
split half the money with the center.
Azis said she hopes participants will
benefit from the group's message and learn
about abuse, how common it is and how to
prevent it.
"We want to reach out to the entire UF
community and especially to those who are
victims of any kind of violence," Azis said.
"We want people to know there is support
and services available to them."

* STUDENTS SUBMIT VIDEOS.

By KATHRYN WATSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

Generations of Florida Gators
are expected to fill a video
booth at the upcoming football
game against the University of
Mississippi to be a part of the
newest nationwide campaign for
UF.
Advertising executives or pub-
lic relations professionals will not
be behind the scenes. Instead, UF


R group to
students will run the show.
This Gator Nation campaign
will give 10 juniors and seniors
the opportunity to give students'
perspectives for the new ads as
members of Alpha PRoductions,
a student agency under the Public
Relations Student Society of
America.
"They were chosen in order
to afford them the experience of
being part of The Gator Nation
campaign," said Dan Williams,
UF director of marketing.
For Alpha PRoductions, the


lead UF advertising


"When did you become a Florida
Gator?" campaign means target-
ing students.
The campaign, which already
includes testimonials from mem-
bers of the university's Board of
Trustees,
UF will grow
Administration to include
a YouTube
channel where students will be
able to submit videos about their
UF experiences.
"We want to give students a
chance to be creative and submit


their stories from wherever they
are in The Gator Nation," said
Monica David, the firm director of
Alpha PRoductions.
There are also plans to place
the video booth at different lo-
cations on campus. Meanwhile,
some students are preparing for
their commercial debut.
"There'd be nothing more
exciting than seeing my face in a
promotion for The Gator Nation,"
said Walker Mills, a UF building
construction junior.
"Famous is famous, but being


campaign
famous for being a Gator would
be pretty incredible."
Mills thinks he has a good shot
at being one of the top stories sub-
mitted but doesn't want to share
his plans yet.
"I don't want to give the story
away, but trust me," he said. "It's
good."
Mills and other Gators will also
have chances to film their stories
at home football games against
Louisiana State University, the
University of Kentucky and The
Citadel.

Volunteer fans leave early after Gators dominate first half of play


NEYLAND, from page 1

quarterback Jonathan Crompton
botched a handoff attempt when
it looked like the Volunteers were
ready to score.
UF defensive end Carlos Dunlap
jumped on the fumble, and the
entire Gators' defense was off the
field with the ball before all of
Tennessee's players stood up.
"We shot ourselves in the foot,"
Crompton said. "We should have
won the ball game, in my opinion.
We gave up 14 points in the red
zone and they scored 7 points off
turnovers. We fumbled on the first
drive, and that gave them 3 more.
Those things change the whole mo-
mentum of the game."


Momentum stayed with the
Gators on a 3rd-and-13 play mid-
way through the second quarter.
When the Volunteers seemed to
be figuring out the Gators' offense,
Tebow called an audible at the line
of scrimmage and hit Percy Harvin
over the middle for a 34-yard pass.
A Tennessee facemask penalty
tacked 15 yards onto the play, and
the Gators found themselves with
a 1st and 10 at the Volunteers' 25-
yard line.
A field goal on the drive put
UF up 20 before the end of the first
half.
The boos rained down on
Crompton and the Tennessee of-
fense after UF cornerback Janoris
Jenkins intercepted the ball in the
end zone with two seconds left


in the first half on a fourth-down
play.
This was not how Tennessee fans
expected their team to perform.
"In the NFL, they say crowd
noise is worth 7 points. I
think it's worth more, prob-
ably, in college."
Urban Meyer
UF football coach

By the time Percy Harvin caught
his first touchdown pass of the
season with 4:29 remaining in the
third quarter, many Volunteers
supporters were done watching
the slaughter. They began pouring
out of the stadium at every exit,
disheartened with the performance


of their team.
"We try to get them out of those
stands early," James said. "Our
motto is, we always say it doesn't
have to be dose."
The crazy, wild, 100,000-fan
environment had already been
quieted, but with 20 minutes still
left in the game, it was conquered.
The home-field advantage was no-
where to be found.
"In the NFL, they say crowd
noise is worth 7 points," UF coach
Urban Meyer said. "I think it's
worth more, probably, in college."
The referees even made it hard
on the depleted crowd. In the wan-
ing moments of the third quarter, a
pass to Tennessee tight end Luke
Stocker was ruled a touchdown,
but then reversed. The fans' loud-


est applause of the game was taken
away from them.
When the Volunteers finally
broke the plane of the end zone, the
tapping was significantly quieter.
Tennessee had not lost a home
game by this many points since the
34-10 defeat at the hands of No. 9
Auburn in 2004.
By the time it was all over, the
swarm of orange had been replaced
by an ugly gray shell, with a few
dense pockets of blue celebrating
the Gators' 24-point victory.
UF players celebrated by danc-
ing and singing the fight song in
one corner of the stadium while the
Volunteers played a somber version
of their alma mater in another.
The contrast could not have
been starker.

Palin talks about Fla. as swing state


PALIN, from page 1


Anurew aranrli / AI..garor BarTr
Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin shakes hands with a supporter Sun-
day afternoon as she arrives at a campaign event in The Villages, Fla.


her husband, Todd Palin, self-proclaimed
Alaskan "first dude" emerged on the
stage to a roar of wild adulation.
She offered little new information in
her speech, but reminded Florida voters of
their ability to swing the election.
"Florida, with your vote, we're going
to win, and we're going to Washington to
shake things up."
However, some in attendance said it
was a small price to pay to see and hear the
woman who they hope will be victorious
in 'vhat was called one of the most impor-
tant elections of their lives.
"Romney, Giuliani, even George Bush
in 2004, none of them got a crowd this big
or this excited when they visited," said
Jeanne Holliday, an event volunteer and
resident of The Villages. "There's some-
thing special about Sarah."
Retired naval officer Terry Marshal
equated the massive speech's energy to a


football game.
"I'm here," Marshal said, "and I've
never been to apolitical rally before in my
life."
For Marshal, it's all about the inter-
national issues, such as keeping nuclear
weapons out of Iran and holding a hard
line with a resurgent Russia.
Others support Palin for her anti-arbor-
tion views, including about 20 UF students
with the campus
Elections chapter of the Pro-
0eci 8 Life Alliance who left
for the event from the
Reitz Union at 6:45
a.m. to get a prime viewing spot.
Amid shouts of "We love you Sarah,"
Palin's speech dipped into friendly banter
as well as party-line policy. The Alaska
governor also took jabs at Democratic
presidential candidate Barack Obama, who
spoke in Jacksonville on Saturday.
"Truly there is only one man of wisdom
to fix our government and economy: John
McCain," she said.

UF FOOTBALL

Gators dominate Volunteers early with big plays


By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Staff Writer
khyppolite@alligator.org-

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. Its fair
to say the rivalry between UF and
Tennessee has become lackluster.
With Saturday's 30-6 demolition
of the Volunteers (1-2), the No. 4
Gators (3-0) earned their fourth con-
secutive victory against Tennessee.
It was also the 12th win in the last
16 games against Tennessee for UF
The Gators wasted little time
in sucking the air out of Neyland
Stadium as they opened the game
with a nine-play, 56-yard touch-
down drive in which Tim Tebow
brought his patented jump pass out
of retirement with a 2-yard loft to
tight end Aaron Hernandez.
UF took a 10-0 lead after a
Montario Hardesty fumble on
Tennessee's next drive resulting in a
Jonathan Phillips field goal.
Junior kick returned Brandon
James made the play of the game
later in the first quarter after
Tennessee's stagnant offense was
forced to punt the ball.
James, who returned an 83-
yard punt for a touchdown against
Tennessee last season, brought back
a 78-yard punt for a touchdown.


"Usually on most of my returns
guys do a great job blocking, and I
don't have to go and make people
miss," James said.
Tennessee did as good of a job
losing the game as the Gators did in
winning it.
The Volunteers turned the ball
over at the 1-yard line on two differ-
ent occasions.
"Usually on most of my
returns guys do a great job
blocking, and I don't have
to go and make people
miss."

UFjunior kick returned

The first came at the tail end of
a 14-play, 71-yard drive that would
have cut the lead to 17-7.
Tennessee running back Arian
Foster mishandled a handoff from
quarterback Jonathan Crompton,
and the ball was recovered by
sophomore defensive end Carlos
Dunlap.
The second turnover came at the
end of the first half on what was an

* HE SCORED A 78-YARD
TOUCHDOWN OFF A PUNT.

By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Staff Writer
edrexler@alligator.org


KNOXVILLE, Tenn. There's
just something about Tennessee that
makes Brandon James go.
"I don't know what it is," James
said. "I think I just get up for the
rivalry and just try to bring my best
game."
The UF running back and kick
returned had another breathtaking
return on Saturday, taking a punt for
a 78-yard touchdown late in the first
quarter.
The touchdown was the fourth
in James' career, tying a UF record.
UF went up 17-0 at that point, and it
was all but over for Tennessee.
"That one felt like I was doing too
much juking and jiving, but it worked
out in the end," James said.
James also said that might have


been the best punt return of his career.
He stopped in a crowd of Tennessee
players, then sped up in an instant
and found a hole.
The diminutive junior only
touched the ball twice in the first half
the punt-return
touchdown being
the second but
he earned 130
yards for UF
Those 130 yards
were 90 more than
the Gators' offense
James tallied in the first
quarter and 22
more than UF got in the entire half.
"If you can hold a block for one
second with a good punt returned,
it's 10 yards," UF coach Urban Meyer
said. "With Brandon James? Hold it
for one second, and it might be more
than that."
Scoring against Tennessee is not
unusual for James.
In last season's contest, James
kicked off the Gators' 59-20 rout with

UF VOLLEYBALL

Bowers back in action, helps team to first SEC wins


By MIKE DIFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

LSU was supposed to be the
team that could put an end to UF's
dominance of the Southeastern
Conference.
With three preseason All-
Conlrence selections, it would ap-
pear this could be the year the Tigers
could bring down a young Gators
squad.
UF coach Mary Wise insisted
before the match it would be one
of her team's biggest challenges of
the season.
But apparently, the more things
change, the more they stay the
same.
The No. 11 Gators' 3-1 (25-12,
25-22, 21-25, 25-19) drubbing of the


Tigers (5-4, 0-2 SEC) makes it seem
like the rest of the conference is still
as far away as ever from knocking
off the juggernaut Wise has built in
Gainesville.
The win came on the heels of
UF's (8-1, 2-0 SEC) Friday-night
3-0 (25-18, 25-16, 25-16) beatdown
of eastern conference rival Georgia
- a team that the Gators have never
lost to.
"We're Florida. We're a really
good team. A lot of people are going
to try and put a target on our backs,"
middle blocker Kelsey Bowers said.
Bowers saw extensive action for
the first time all season in the Gators'
last two games.
Her match-high seven blocks led
the way defensively for UF against
LSU. But the senior showed that she
still has her offensive touch as well,


racking up five kills on only eight
swings and finishing with a team-
high .625 hitting percentage.
"This was the match where
Kelsey Bowers returned," Wise said.
"(She) was a difference-maker out
there."
It was the re-
turn to the lineup
that Bowers had
been itching to
make.
"My back is
finally starting
Bowers to feel better,"
she said. "I feel
strong."
Wise said she hopes that with
Bowers back on the court, her team
will be able to shore up the blocking
that has been a weak point for the
Gators this season.


"Ten blocks is good, but I think
that we can be so much better," Wise
said.
Wise continues to praise the play
of junior libero Elyse Cusack.
Her match-high 21 digs and con-
sistent defensive play have helped
bring stability to the young team.
But it's not just Cusack who
has stepped up defensively for the
Gators.
Wise pointed out the improve-
ment of freshman setter Cindy
Bathelt (eight digs), who is now
making an impact after being relied
on solely to distribute the ball early
in the season.
"We're beginning to pick up balls
in the back row that we should be
picking up all the time," Wise said.
Offensively, the story of the week-
end was the emergence of freshman


outside hitter Colleen Ward.
Her career-high 15 kills against
LSU and 10 in the win over Georgia
have given an already loaded UF
arsenal a new weapon.
"Not only can she score points
for us, but she can be low-error too,"
Wise said. "Sometimes you have
players that can get you points, but
then they give just as many to the
other team. Colleen doesn't make
those mistakes."
Trying to get the always humble
Wise to talk about her run of the SEC
- she's won 17 consecutive confer-
ence championships is nearly
impossible, but needless to say it
appears that the road to the title still
runs through Gainesville.
"Two and 0 at home is the right
place to start, but it's a long season,"
Wise said.


Moody sees increased carries, leads UF with 55 rushing yards


FOOTBALL, from page 17


11-play, 60-yard drive. Facing 4th and 1 with
six seconds remaining in the half, Crompton
threw a pick to cornerback Janoris Jenkins.
UF entered the half with a 20-0 lead.
Game. Set. Match.
"That wasn't us," coach Phil Fulmer said.
"The penalties, the red-zone efforts ...we've
been outstanding in those areas. (in our pre-
vious games). We never gave our defense a


chance."
One year ago, it was Tebow's defense that
nevergave him a chance.
For the second time this season, the reign-
ing Heisman Trophy winner had less than
spectacular stats he finished 8-of-15 for 96
yards and two touchdowns but once again
the Gators came away with an easy victory.
"You can really count on (the defense),"
Tebow said. "You don't have to force any-
thing. It's a great thing. They're out there, and
they're playing hard and making plays."
And just when it appeared that UF was still


a team without a workhorse running back,
Emmanuel Moody finally had the game Gators
fans have waited years for.
Moody led UF with 55 yards
on nine carries.
"All I want to do is have
FO all a role," Moody said. "That
doesn't mean I have to be the
key guy in carries, but I just feel like the whole
team has meshed together well and whatever
part I play, I'm going to keep going hard."
While this is Tennessee's first 1-2 start since
1994, the Gators still feel like this win is as im-


portant as any other they have enjoyed over
the years.
UF remembers how quickly fortunes
can change. Last season, UF manhandled
Tennessee, but the Volunteers still played in
the Southeastern Conference Championship
Game.
"It was a huge step for us," Tebow said.
"For the last 12 to 15 years, the winner of this
game has had a lot of success in the SEC, and
it gives you a lot of momentum. That surge
going into SEC play, you can really feed off of
and get focused."


Gators may try more two-returner sets


JAM ES, from page 17

an 82-yard punt return for a
touchdown.
Neyland Stadium is also
where James made his premiere
starting appearance for the
Gators.
Earlier this week, Meyer re-
layed a story about how James
first earned the starting punt-
returner job one hour before the
Tennessee game in 2006.
Meyer was impressed with
James' composure while fans
were hurling obscenities the
Gators way before that game two
years ago.
"I look at him, and he starts
doing the Gator chomp," Meyer


said. "That kid is not intimidated
by anything, so I grabbed him
and I said, "You're the punt re-
turner today.'"
"I look at him, and he
starts doing the Gator
chomp."
Urban Meyer
UF football coach

James racked up 65 return
yards on four punts including a
long of 35 in that game.
After James' reputation for
the big play was reaffirmed early
on Saturday, he didn't get a touch
until the third quarter.
The Gators, expecting
Tennessee to punt away from
James, put James and wide


receiver Percy Harvin deep to
catch the punt.
James made the catch, then
he and Harvin ran to the center
of the field. James faked a pitch
to Harvin and took the ball for 14
yards to the Volunteers' 47.
"We'll probably do a bit more
of that," Meyer said. "Those two
back there can be lethal."
During James' postgame
interview, Meyer wedged his
arm through a media crowd and
doused James with water. The
pride on Meyer's face was evi-
dent, and James laughed.
"Something's wrong with
coach, man," said James with a
smile, water running down his
face. "I'm going to get him after
this."


BRIAN, from page 17

and six carries doesn't qualify as
letting perhaps the best athlete in
the nation "loose." It does, how-
ever, make you wonder why UF
hasn't actually "let it loose" yet.
It's understandable to have a
conservative offense when you
have Chris Leak under center, and
DeShawn Wynn plodding along
behind him. Its not understand-
able when you have the only soph-
omore to ever win the Heisman
Trophy and more than a handful
of guys who run faster than a 4.3
40-yard dash.
Why putt along in a Volvo


when you have a Porsche? Why
eat at McDonald's when you can
be served filet mignon? Why be the
church choir director if you've got
the pipes of Aretha Franklin?
Bottom line: Why play it safe?
There's one thing that's dear so
far in UF's season: This team has
national championship potential.
The defense has won games for
this team, and that's after a year
where they lost games and played
like they were still at their high
school proms.
Wouldn't you have a sick feel-
ing in your stomach if, at the end of
the year, the Gators could've made
it farther if they had opened up
their playbook just a tad more?

You Decide. -] *yi MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 22,2008 UF 30 E E TENNESSEE 6 FULL SPEED AHEAD narrson uiamona / Aiigaior.ma UF quarterback Tim Tebow tries to break free from Tennessee linebacker Ellix Wilson during a pass rush in the first quarter of the Gators' 30-6 win against Tennessee in Neyland Stadium in Knoxville, Tenn., on Saturday. Gators blow past Vols By EVAN DREXLER Alligator Staff Writer edrexler@alligator.org KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -One hundred thousand orange shirts, and they were all in the wrong hue. No. 4 UF's game against Tennessee was a laugher 11 minutes in, and the crowd in a filled-to-the-rafters Neyland Stadium had nothing to cheer about after the player introductions. It was 17-0 so fast, the fans didn't know what to do with themselves. The Gators (3-0) carried early momentum with them for the rest of the game, claiming a 30-6 victory against the Volunteers (1-2). After Brandon James' 78yard touchdown punt return late in the first quarter, no amount of singing "Rocky Top" was going to bring the Volunteers back into the game. "It just kind of takes the crowd out of it," UF coach Urban Meyer said of the return. Gators quarterback Tim Tebow spent time last week talking about how important momentum is in college football when -explaining how Ohio State lost its game against Southern Cal. On Saturday, the impact of momentum was crystal dear, and the Gators should have no trouble carrying the effects of this giant victory into next week's home contest against Mississippi. "I'm starting to like this team a little bit," Meyer said. "I'm not going to say a lot, but I like this teani a little bit because they know how to practice and are acting very mature right now." The deflation of Neyland was complete when Tennessee SEE NEYLAND, PAGE 10 ELECTION 2008 Obama visits Jacksonville By MAGGIE LAWRENCE Alligator Contributing Writer At a rally in Jacksonville on Saturday, Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama took aim at investment bankers, insurance companies and high-salaried citizens, declaring they could spare some change. "The events of this week have shown that the stakes of this election could not be higher; they could not be clearer," Obama said. "We are in the midst of the most serious financial crisis in generations." The Illinois senator addressed a crowd of about 20,000 on Saturday afternoon at downtown Jacksonville's Metropolitan Park. About 12,000 people filled the park to capacity, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office. About 8,000 more were turned away from the park more than half an hour before the speech was scheduled to begin. Those denied entry gathered around loudspeakers placed on the outskirts of the park. Two small planes circled overhead, dragging banners reading "Florida Is McCain & Paln Country" and "Raising Taxes Is Not Patriotic." Obama seemed impressed by the turnout. "I'm amazed we got such a big crowd," he said at the beginning of his address.

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 22,2008 K ALLIGATOR, 3 Supreme Court decision could increase construction E CITY CAN NOW FUND COMMERCIAL PROJECTS. By KATIE GALLAGHER Alligator Staff Writer kgallagher@aliigator.org A reversed Florida Supreme Court decision could mean more construction projects around Gainesville. The court reversed the decision Thursday on Strand v. Escambia County, a case that had outlawed a common practice used to encourage developers to build in more expensive areas, such as Gainesville's downtown area. The practice offers developers funds from property taxes over many years, without requiring a voter referendum. Before they were declared illegal, the city was in the process of offering these long-term agreements to luxury condo project University Corners and apartment complex University House. Now that the case has been overturned, the city Loci may decide to renew News its offers. Frank Darabi, a partner on University Corners, said he has not spoken to city officials but is excited to hear about the court decision. "That's what we've been waiting for," Darabi said. Construction on University Corners, at the corner of 13th Street and West University Avenue, has been at a standstill. Construction at University House has been completed, but developers are still awaiting funding. The Community Redevelopment Agency proposed Monday that the city offer the developer a one-year funding contract renewable over the next 15 years. Since the reversal, city spokesman Bob Woods said Gainesville offered Friday to renegotiate a 15-year agreement but has not heard back from University House representatives. Woods said officials were pleased to hear of the reversal. "Sometimes it's hard to make the playing field level unless you have certain tools," he said. Obama criticizes McCain's tax breaks OBAMA, from page 1 Andrew Stantill / Alligator Staff Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama smiles Saturday during a pause in his speech at a campaign rally at Metropolitan Park in Jacksonville. know if ya'll are aware there's football today." During the 30-minute speech, which was delayed more than an hour because of traffic, Obama criticized Republican candidate John McCain's support for fewer financial regulations and tax breaks for those making more than $250,000 a year. He said such deregulation is the cause of recent investment bank collapses and could not be expected to hold up any better for health insurance companies. "I will cut taxes for 95 percent of all working families," Obama said. "If you make less than a quarter-million dollars a year -is that you? -you will not see your taxes increase one dime." Filup Molina, an English senior at UF who attended the rally, said he hoped that he could one day tell his children he not only voted for Barack Obama, but saw him in person. After waiting in the heat past Obama's scheduled appearance time, Molina said he was glad to see that the candidate jogged from his bus to the stage. "I thought to myself, 'Here's a chance for him to show that he's not like the other people,"' Molina said. "That's just a very subtle sign to show people that he was hopeful and spirElections ited even though people 2008 were passing out." Florida remains a battleground state for McCain and Obama. Jacksonville was Obama's last stop in a whirlwind tour of Florida, in which he also spoke in Coral Gables and Daytona Beach. "Florida is close, but Florida is always close," Florida Sen. Bill Nelson said before Obama took the stage in Jacksonville. "The person who wins Florida is going to win the presidency."

4, ALLIGATOR N MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 22,2008 Party releases platform N STUDENTS CAN EDIT GOALS. By KATIE SANDERS Alligator Staff Writer ksanders@alligator.org The Orange and Blue Party released its platform for public input Sunday, but some of the party's ideas could be modified by the time the Student Government election arrives. Some of the platform points, which include switching UP's e-mail service provider to Gmail and implementing online voting in SC elections, will be familiar to students who voted in spring, but a few ideas are new. The party's platform is available as a wiki, so students can edit the platform and share their ideas. The platform is linked to from the party's Web site: www.orangeandblueparty.com. Orange and Blue Party President Sam Miorelli said a new idea that came up in the party's meeting last week was to make STD) testing available to students for free. Miorelli said there are a lot of resources in Alachua County that offer free and reduced-price STD testing, but student access to those places is limited because they are not on campus. The party also supports creating a committee consisting of students, faculty and alumni to advise UF about where to invest its endowment. The party also wants UF to join the Worker Rights Consortium to ensure Gator and UF apparel is not produced by exploited workers. Miorelli said his party supports Universities Allied for Essential Medicines, which aims to make new drugs developed by UF affordable. "These are things that Student Government needs to put a strong and official student voice behind," he said. He said the party aims to cut down on wasteful spending by enlisting a thirdparty audit of SG's multi-million dollar budget, which is paid by students through Activity and Service fees. "We don't feel like many students, including us, reStudent ally trust how Student l0oVernMieNlt Government has been spending the money," Miorelli said. Another initiative calls for the creation of a student committee to oversee entertainment selections for Gator Growl, which is billed as the world's largest student-run pep rally. This year, comedian Jon Reep of NBC's "Last Comic Standing" and Steve Miller Band will perform. Miorelli said he has not been impressed with the acts in the past few years, which last year included comedian Frank Caliendo of "MADtv" "When we've got a bad impersonation of the president, and FSU has Stephen Colbert, you know that there's something wrong," he said. Gator Party President Luis Nobriga said his party's platform would likely be released at the end of the week. Band enters ESPN contest By CAROLYN TILLO Alligator Contributing Writer Football is the traditional UF moneymaker, but it's the marching band that recently earned $5,000 filming a spot for ESPN. The money was the result of a, contest to promote the DVD release of "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull." ESPN and Paramount Pictures designed the contest, called "The Battle of the Bands and the Quest for the Crystal," which included six other marching band performances from across the country and a chance at an extra $25,000. The contest is built on a comparison between the crystal national championship trophy and the crystal skull, said Joe Knaus, manager of co-marketing at ESPN, in a phone interview. Knaus said the band's performances of "Raiders March," the movie's theme, will be posted on ESPN's Web site. Fans can vote daily from Sept. 29 through Oct. 10 for the performance they want to win. The bands competing come from UF, Louisiana State University, Auburn University, Clemson University, The University of Texas at Austin, the University of Southern California .and the University of Georgia, all considered to be contenders for the 2009 BCS National Championship Game trophy. "It's a great honor, certainly, to be considered with the other schools because they all have great bands." John M. Watkins Jr. director, the Fightin' Gator Marching Band "It's a great honor, certainly, to be considered with the other schools because they all have great bands," said John M. Watkins Jr., director of the "Pride of the Sunshine" Fightin' Gator Marching Band.

About 3,000 people attended the free event Saturday at the recently renamed Bo Diddley Community Plaza, said Wilfredo Melendez, the director of the festival and president of the Chamber of Hispanic Affairs. "We take the opportunity every year to celebrate Hispanic culture in our community," Melendez said. The event featured live music from acts including Umoja Orchestra, Estamos Unidos and Mariachi International. Food vendors from local churches sold Hispanic food to raise money for charities, while clothing and jewelry stands sold items from Latin American countries. Harvest of Hope Foundation, a local nonprofit organization that raises funds to aid migrant workers, ran a booth at the festival to raise awareness. We take the opportunity every year to celebrate Hispanic culture in our community." Wilfredo Melendez president of the Chamber of Hispanic Affairs Jorge Pino, a UF graduate student from Panama, said he happened to walk past the gathering and decided to stay a while. "It's very cool to see that there are a lot of different Hispanic cultures represented here," Pino said. -CARLA ASTUDILLO Revisions satisfy Orange and Blue N TRUSTEES VOTE TODAY. Members of the Orange and Blue Party, who have made controversial revisions to UF's Student Conduct Code a major part of its agenda in recent weeks, said they are happy with the final version of the changes, which were released Thursday The changes include a ban on common source containers, such as kegs and beer balls, and activities that encourage excessive, rapid consumption of alcohol, such as drinking games, "on campus, in the housing of any University of Florida organization or group, or in connection with a University activity," according to the code revision. Cain Norris, an Orange and Blue Party candidate for District B in the upcoming UF election, Administration said he the new regulation contains the university's jurisdiction to campus and university events. The Board of Trustees' Educational Policy and Strategy Committee will vote on the changes in a teleconference at 2 p.m. today. The full board will vote on the changes in a Wednesday teleconference. Orange and Blue Party President Sam Miorelli said his party has largely stopped collecting signatures for its petition, which opposed a previous version of the changes. The petition had over 200 signatures, he said. But Miorelli said the fight's not over yet. "We feel like it's important for us not to let our guard down on this until the final vote is cast," he said. -THOMAS STEWART % 6

6, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2008 Editorial Plus Side Minus grades not the end of the world A ll this talk about minus grades is much ado about We tried to convince ourselves that this is some evil administrative policy set to screw up our grade point averages and financial aid, and our only course of action would be to revolt or walk out on our classes. We would look like BAMFs -street cred attained. Turns out, we can't really justify getting all riled up for something that ultimately doesn't change how or why we do our work. Minus grades really aren't the end of the world. In one study, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's average GPA only dropped from 3.11 to 3.05 the year the school implemented minus grades. That's only six hundredths of a point. Three years later the average had bumped back up to 3.08. Sorry to say it, but we aren't about to lose any sleep about such a small difference. If UF's minus grade trend follows that of Nebraska, most of our GPAs are going to sink a bit within the next year. For those of you who will be graduating within the next three or four semesters, that means you probably won't be around to see UF's collective GPA rebound. Sucks to be you, nerds. Crying about it isn't going to do anything, though, so don't. Minus grades aren't the cause of the Apocalypse. If anything, they should serve as motivation for you to actually get up and go to your first and second period classes, rather than hanging out on your pillow top with your snooze button. Besides, your grades will always reflect the amount of work you actually did. It's corny, we know, but it's also true. So suck it up and skip '80s night in favor of Club West. Rick Springfield and The Outfield aren't going anywhere. Building Up If you've lived in Gainesville for the past few years, you've grown accustomed to constant construction work. We know we have. It just wouldn't be the same to sleep through an entire night without hearing a construction worker barking at one of his coworkers over the sound of a concrete-obliterating jackhammer. The only way this situation could be more fun is if it took place just outside our windows a few minutes before sunrise. We love to be woken up at 5:45 a.m. when we don't have class for another five hours. That's why the Editorial Board is excited to hear the Florida Supreme Court reversed a decision that prohibited the city from funding development in expensive areas, such as downtown. Now Gainesville can offer developers incentives -money -to build in more crowded areas. And you can join us in our lack of sleep. With any luck, this decision reversal will allow land developers to start throwing together new apartment complexes at' the speed of light. If that holds to be true, we're heading straight for Sam's to pick up a 32-gallon trash can filled with NyQuil so we can sleep through the bulldozer's reverse beep. It seems like 400 new apartment complexes have been built in the past year and a half, and those were completed without these newly legal city-issued incentives. We're crossing our fingers in hopes that they'll leave enough space for parking garages after they toss together another couple hundred apartment buildings.

Opinions ALLIGATOR www.alligator.org/opinion Guest column Students have stake in SG election hey're back. Equipped with new fliers, slogans, T-shirts and platforms, Student Government parties are back en masse and yearning for our votes. Every fall and spring semester, UF students are overwhelmed by party volunteers and ads trying to swing every Gator's vote. Unfortunately, most of the time these pleas fall on deaf ears. Last spring, 8,129 total ballots were cast for student candidates and referendum questions. This number may sound like an impressive amount of voters, but let's put it in context. The UF Office of Institutional Planning and Research reports that more than 51,000 students attend UF. This means about 16 percent of UF students use their right to vote for their student representatives. As the state's flagship institution, this is simply unacceptable. Even if students feel disconnected in relation to the local, state or national legislative system, the same should not be true for how they feel about their school. There are two reasons why you should go out to the polls on Oct. 7 and 8 to cast a ballot for your fellow Gators. The first is the money. SG has a total budget of $13.6 million that will be dished out next year. You pay into this SG slush fund when you pay your student activities fee each semester, so you, too, have a stake in it. This money gets directly funneled to us through several different mechanisms. SG funds dozens of student groups -such as Accent -and divvies money out to the Reitz Union and the Recreational Sports Department. Kyle Robisch The Cartel and Yung Joc conSpeaking Out cert that you enjoyed last week_ _ end? It was paid for by Student Government Productions. The second reason everyone should vote is that SG's actions and policies affect us in concrete ways. A strong Student Senate can stand up against unfair university policies, and the student body president sits on the Board of Trustees. SG helps plan transportation regulations and fund upkeep of the Reitz Union ,and Southwest Recreation Center. And remember those dreaded hand scanners that nobody wants? The election is the place to vote on a referendum against them. In his Gettysburg Address, Abraham Lincoln stated, "that government of the people, by the people and for the people, shall not perish from the earth." We have the right to hold our leaders accountable, and we have the right to decide who represents us. Fed up with Student Government? Vote. Support the current leadership? Vote. Whether you support the Gator Party, Orange and Blue Party, Student Party or independent candidates, you have a reason to vote in the SG election. SG affects our pocketbooks, transcripts and ability to throw pingpong balls into Solo cups every Friday and Saturday night. Each party offers both a vastly different platform and overall direction for our university, and it would be wise for all Gators to pay attention and vote.

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2008 N ALLIGATOR, 7 Letters to the Editor Next president won't solve economy This is a response to Friday's column "Presidential election could determine economic future of U.S." While Mr. Legel correctly points out that the U.S. financial system is in turmoil, the solution he proposes does little to address the issues facing the economy. The next president will not solve our financial crisis. In my opinion, the root of the problem lies in how we perceive our economic system. Our Founding Fathers believed in free and open markets and opposed any form of socialism or government control over such markets. Today, our government has been undermining these principles by selectively bailing out corporations that the bureaucrats in Washington deem essential to the health of our financial system. Whatever happened to economic Darwinism and survival of the fittest? If a company makes bad financial decisions, then let it fail. Don't bail it out with taxpayers' money. Both Sen. Barack Obama and Sen. John McCain favor an expansion of government power over the economy, so who am I to vote for in this upcoming election? Ross Perot? Legal drinkers don't deserve harassing Last week I was socializing inside Grog House with my wristband on, legally drinking a beer, and I was harassed by a Gainesville Police officer. I am 23 years old. I was asked to show my ID. Then they wanted another form of ID. Already perturbed by the unnecessary questioning, I politely presented the officer my UFID. Next, he asked me to step out back with him and remove my free hand from my pocket. He continued his demeaning interrogation for the next 15 minutes and asked me Daniel Rood for my social security number. 3EG After he radioed my information in and concluded that his witch hunt was going nowhere, I was finally permitted to return to the bar. I can only imagine how many other bar patrons have been unjustly harassed like this. The arrival of police officers at the bars at any given time is as unsettling for me as it must be for a sweaty-palmed 18-year-old with a fake ID. That should never be the case. I feel that the GPD underage drinking campaign has exceeded its bounds. This is an overly aggressive police campaign trampling the rights of law-abiding citizens without reason. Alberto Rabionet UFalumnus Guest column Marine's courage, sacrifice deserve highest possible honor ast week, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates decided that Sgt. Rafael Peralta would not be awarded the Medal of Honor. Instead, Gates decided that he should be awarded the Navy Cross. For those who have never heard of Peralta, he was a Marine who took part in Operation Phantom Fury in the city of Fallujah, Iraq, during November 2004. While leading a patrol into a house Nov. 15, he encountered a group of insurgents and was shot several times in the face and chest. During the fight, one of the attackers threw a grenade at the group of Marines, and, despite his wounds, Peralta was able to grab the grenade and pull it up to his chest before it exploded, saving the lives of his fellow Marines. Both the Marine Corps and the Secretary of the Navy pushed for Peralta to be awarded the Medal of Honor. Gates decided the Navy Cross was more appropriate. Many speculate the reason for this decision was that Peralta used Edgar to be an ilRodriguez legal immiSpeaking Out, grant and, if awarded the medal, a political firestorm might ensue. Whatever the reason, I think it is disgraceful that he was not awarded the medal. The Navy Cross is a great honor the Marine Corps does not bestow lightly. Peralta clearly met the criteria for the Medal of Honor. Thankfully, Peralta's family and friends refused to accept that he be shortchanged for his bravery. They are still trying to see that Peralta receives the honor he deserves -as are several members of Congress. I knew Peralta. I was with him in Iraq, and I know firsthand that the tales of his bravery and courage are not exaggerated. If anything, they have been understated. He didn't have to be in Fallujah leading the way on Nov. 15. He could have taken the easy route and sat behind a desk, and no one would have been the wiser. He volunteered to be there because he wanted to serve his country in the most difficult way possible. He may not have been born in the United States, but Peralta loved his adopted country more than most native-born Americans do. Regardless of your views about the Iraq war, acts of selflessness like Peralta's must be properly acknowledged. I hope he receives the recognition he deserves and is able to take his place among the Medal of Honor recipients who have given their lives for their country.

8, ALLIGATOR I MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2008 LOCAL NEWS GPD proposes security charges for visiting candidates By ASHLEY HEMMY Alligator Writer Gainesville officials are preparing for potential visits from political candidates by deciding on the most cost-efficient way to protect them. At a City Commission meeting Thursday, Gainesville Police Chief Norman Botsford proposed a plan to make security costs more consistent during visits from political or public figures during election season. Botsford proposed that GPD charge important figures for security to and from events. During each event, the owner of the facility would be responsible for paying for security, which could be provided by the police. Security fees for GPD are currently set at $49 per officer per hour, city documents stated. The proposal Kameg was sent to the committee for further discussion. The question of consistency stemmed from 2004, when Democratic vice presidential nominee John Edwards and President George W. Bush, who was seeking re-election, visited Gainesville. While one of them was not charged for security, the other was asked to pay, Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan said at the meeting. With another election approaching, Gainesville should be prepared for visits from political figures, GPD Lt. Keith Kameg said. It was brought up at the meeting that many cities don't have policies on political security. Kameg said safety for political figures is an important issue. "We live in a country of divided beliefs," Kameg said. "When beliefs are considered wrong, danger could be involved." Campaign against sexual assault to launch Tuesday 0 VICTORY OVER VIOLENCE WILL OFFER FREE SELF-DEFENSE CLASS. BY BROOKE ARONOFF Alligator Contributing Writer Victory Over Violence, a UF student organization that hosts the production of "The Vagina Monologues" annually, is hosting RAINN Day, an annual campaign created by the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network to stop sexual assault on college campuses. "'The Vagina Monologues' is very effective in getting the message out about sexual assault, but we wanted to get involved in an even bigger way this year," said Jackie Azis, president of Victory Over Violence. The organization, which provides a network of support for those who have been affected by domestic, sexual or dating violence, hopes to raise awareness among students by participating in RAINN Day. Even though the event is Thursday, the group is hosting events in honor of the day starting Tuesday and concluding with a discussion panel about Student global and domestic violence Life and women's rights on Oct. 9. Other events include a free one-hour self defense class for up to 30 women Wednesday in the Community Services Division building and a movie screening Thursday night at the Civic Media Center. Victory Over Violence will ask for donations of $3 to $5 to watch the movie and will split half the money with the center. Azis said she hopes participants will benefit from the group's message and learn about abuse, how common it is and how to prevent it. "We want to reach out to the entire UF community and especially to those who are victims of any kind of violence," Azis said. "We want people to know there is support and services available to them."

10, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 22,2008 Volunteer fans leave early after Gators dominate first half of play NEYLAND, from page 1 quarterback Jonathan Crompton botched a handoff attempt when it looked like the Volunteers were ready to score. UF defensive end Carlos Dunlap jumped on the fumble, and the entire Gators' defense was off the field with the ball before all of Tennessee's players stood up. "We shot ourselves in the foot," Crompton said. "We should have won the ball game, in my opinion. We gave up 14 points in the red zone and they scored 7 points off turnovers. We fumbled on the first drive, and that gave them 3 more. Those things change the whole momentum of the game." Momentum stayed with the Gators on a 3rd-and-13 play midway through the second quarter. When the Volunteers seemed to be figuring out the Gators' offense, Tebow called an audible at the line of scrimmage and hit Percy Harvin over the middle for a 34-yard pass. A Tennessee facemask penalty tacked 15 yards onto the play, and the Gators found themselves with a 1st and 10 at the Volunteers' 25yard line. A field goal on the drive put UF up 20 before the end of the first half. The boos rained down on Crompton and the Tennessee offense after UF cornerback Janoris Jenkins intercepted the ball in the end zone with two seconds left in the first half on a fourth-down play. This was not how Tennessee fans expected their team to perform. "In the NFL, they say crowd noise is worth 7 points. I think it's worth more, probably, in college." Urban Meyer UF football coach By the time Percy Harvin caught his first touchdown pass of the season with 4:29 remaining in the third quarter, many Volunteers supporters were done watching the slaughter. They began pouring out of the stadium at every exit, disheartened with the performance of their team. "We try to get them out of those stands early," James said. "Our motto is, we always say it doesn't have to be close." The crazy, wild, 100,000-fan environment had already been quieted, but with 20 minutes still left in the game, it was conquered. The home-field advantage was nowhere to be found. "In the NFL, they say crowd noise is worth 7 points," UF coach Urban Meyer said. "I think it's worth more, probably, in college." The referees even made it hard on the depleted crowd. In the waning moments of the third quarter, a pass to Tennessee tight end Luke Stocker was ruled a touchdown, but then reversed. The fans' loudest applause of the game was taken away from them. When the Volunteers finally broke the plane of the end zone, the clapping was significantly quieter. Tennessee had not lost a home game by this many points since the 34-10 defeat at the hands of No. 9 Auburn in 2004. By the time it was all over, the swarm of orange had been replaced by an ugly gray shell, with a few dense pockets of blue celebrating the Gators'24-point victory. UF players celebrated by dancing and singing the fight song in one corner of the stadium while the Volunteers played a somber version of their alma mater in another. The contrast could not have been starker. Palin talks about Fla. as swing state PALIN, from page 1 Auurewwxannm/ oAimrganroar Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin shakes hands with a supporter Sunday afternoon as she arrives at a campaign event in The Villages, Fla. her husband, Todd Palin, self-proclaimed Alaskan "first dude" -emerged on the stage to a roar of wild adulation. She offered little new information in her speech, but reminded Florida voters of their ability to swing the election. "Florida, with your vote, we're going to win, and we're going to Washington to shake things up." However, some in attendance said it was a small price to pay to see and hear the woman who they hope will be victorious in 'What was called one of the most important elections of their lives. "Romney, Giuliani, even George Bush in 2004, none of them got a crowd this big or this excited when they visited," said Jeanne Holliday, an event volunteer and resident of The Villages. "There's something special about Sarah." Retired naval officer Terry Marshal equated the massive speech's energy to a football game. "I'm here," Marshal said, "and I've never been to apolitical rally before in my life." For Marshal, it's all about the international issues, such as keeping nuclear weapons out of Iran and holding a hard line with a resurgent Russia. Others support Palin for her anti-arbortion views, including about 20 UF students with the campus Electi n chapter of the Pro100 Life Alliance who left for the event from the Reitz Union at 6:45 a.m. to get a prime viewing spot. Amid shouts of "We love you Sarah," Pain's speech dipped into friendly banter as well as party-line policy. The Alaska governor also took jabs at Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, who spoke in Jacksonville on Saturday. "Truly there is only one man of wisdom to fix our government and economy: John McCain," she said. Prep now and get free MCAT Science Review!

Sports MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 22 2008 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org UF FOOTBALL Gators dominate Volunteers early with big plays By KARL HYPPOLITE Alligator Staff Writer khyppolite@aligator.org KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -It's fair to say the rivalry between UF and Tennessee has become lackluster. With Saturday's 30-6 demolition of the Volunteers (1-2), the No. 4 Gators (3-0) earned their fourth consecutive victory against Tennessee. It was also the 12th win in the last 16 games against Tennessee for UE The Gators wasted little time in sucking the air out of Neyland Stadium as they opened the game with a nine-play, 56-yard touchdown drive in vhich Tim Tebow brought his patented jump pass out of retirement with a 2-yard loft to tight end Aaron Hernandez. UF took a 10-0 lead after a Montario Hardesty fumble on Tennessee's next drive resulting in a Jonathan Phillips field goaL. Junior kick returner Brandon James made the play of the game later in the first quarter after Tennessee's stagnant offense was forced to punt the ball. James, who returned an 83yard punt for a touchdown against Tennessee last season, brought back a 78-yard punt for a touchdown. "Usually on most of my returns guys do a great job blocking, and I don't have to go and make people miss," James said. Tennessee did as good of a job losing the game as the Gators did in winning it. The Volunteers turned the ball over at the 1-yard line on two different occasions. "Usually on most of my returns guys do a great job blocking, and I don't have to go and make people miss." Brandon James UFjunior kick returner The first came at the tail end of a 14-play, 71-yard drive that would have cut the lead to 17-7. Tennessee running back Arian Foster mishandled a handoff from quarterback Jonathan Crompton, and the ball was recovered by sophomore defensive end Carlos Dunlap. The second turnover came at the end of the first half on what was an SEE FOOTBALL, PAGE 18 Harrison Diamond / Alligator Staff UF cornerback Markihe Anderson tackles Tennessee tight end Brandon Warren in the second quarter of the Gators' 30-6 win against Tennessee in Neyland Stadium in Knoxville, Tenn., on Saturday. Timid playcalling hides team's talent KNOXVILLE, Tenn Man, you're such a frigging stud. You've got the prettiest gal in school walking arm in arm with you almost 24/7. You drive up every day in a sleek Mercedes. Your Abercrombie and Hollister shirts are always neatly pressed. You've got Division-I coaches' texting you every day, saying how you're their final piece in a national championship run. Except nobody knows it. You keep your best attributes hidden and play it safe. Doesn't make sense? Don't worry, I don't get it either. That's exactly why UF's offense was so perplexing Saturday. Yes, the Gators embarrassed one of their biggest rivals and probably cost Phil Fulmer his job. And yes, they should've scored at least three more touchdowns than they did. Nothing personal, Tinmy Tebow, but you don't need to be running up the middle 12 times like you did against Tennessee. Not when you've got Chris Rainey, Emmanuel Moody, Percy Harvin and Jeff Demps. What you should be doing instead, Tim, is actually reeling back and using your cannon arm to throw the ball e st downfield. Can we please get a chance to see this speed and explosiveness that's been talked about since the spring? Let's actually Brian Steele see if Carl Moore can Steele-ing Bases be a threat downfield bsteele@alligator.org rather than labeling him a bust -like some have already done. How about using the wide receivers' athleticism to stretch the field so defenses don't just line up in the box waiting for Tebow to come bowling through the offensive line? The only good thing that came from Saturday's play calling was that Kestahn Moore didn't get a carry. Moore deserves every accolade he receives for his leadership off the field, but what he does on the field can be replicated -and bettered -by every other running back on UF's roster. Last week, Urban Meyer told Percy Harvin he was going to "let him loose." Two catches SEE BRIAN, PAGE 18 James gets his kicks HE SCORED A 78-YARD TOUCHDOWN OFF A PUNT. By EVAN DREXLER Alligator Staff Writer edrexler@asligator.org KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -There's just something about Tennessee that makes Brandon James go. "I don't know what it is," James said. "I think I just get up for the rivalry and just try to bring my best game." The UF running back and kick returner had another breathtaking return on Saturday, taking a punt for a 78-yard touchdown late in the first quarter. The touchdown was the fourth in James' career, tying a UF record. UF went up 17-0 at that point, and it was all but over for Tennessee. "That one felt like I was doing too much juking and jiving, but it worked out in the end," James said. James also said that might have been the best punt return of his career. He stopped in a crowd of Tennessee players, then sped up in an instant and found a hole. The diminutive junior only touched the ball twice in the first half the punt-return touchdown being the second -but he earned 130 Those 130 yards were 90 more than the Gators' offense James tallied in the first quarter and 22 more than UF got in the entire half. "If you can hold a block for one second with a good punt returner, it's 10 yards," UF coach Urban Meyer said. "With Brandon James? Hold it for one second, and it might be more than that." Scoring against Tennessee is not unusual for James. In last season's contest, James kicked off the Gators' 59-20 rout with SEE JAMES, PAGE 18 Today's question: Who is being under-utilized Percent(Votes) in the UF offense?

18, )&LIGATOR E MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 22,2008 UF VOLLEYBALL Bowers back in action, helps team to first SEC wins By MIKE DIFERDINANDO Alligator Staff Writer mdiferdinando@alligator.org LSU was supposed to be the team that could put an end to UF's dominance of the Southeastem Conference. With three preseason AllCon%.snce selections, it would appear this could be the year the Tigers could bring down a young Gators squad. UF coach Mary Wise insisted before the match it would be one of her team's biggest challenges of the season. But apparently, the more things change, the more they stay the same. The No. 11 Gators' 3-1 (25-12, 25-22, 21-25, 25-19) drubbing of the Tigers (5-4, 0-2 SEC) makes it seem like the rest of the conference is still as far away as ever from knocking off the juggernaut Wise has built in Gainesville. The win came on the heels of UF's (8-1, 2-0 SEC) Friday-night 3-0 (25-18, 25-16, 25-16) beatdown of eastern conference rival Georgia -a team that the Gators have never lost to. "We're Florida. We're a really good team. A lot of people are going to try and put a target on our backs," middle blocker Kelsey Bowers said. Bowers saw extensive action for the first time all season in the Gators' last two games. Her match-high seven blocks led the way defensively for UF against LSU. But the senior showed that she still has her offensive touch as well, racking up five kills on only eight swings and finishing with a teamhigh .625 hitting percentage. "This was the match where Kelsey Bowers returned," Wise said. "(She) was a difference-maker out there." It was the return to the lineup that Bowers had been itching to make. S"My back is finally starting Bowers to feel better," she said. "I feel strong." Wise said she hopes that with Bowers back on the court, her team will be able to shore up the blocking that has been a weak point for the Gators this season. "Ten blocks is good, but I think that we can be so much better," Wise said. Wise continues to praise the play of junior libero Elyse Cusack. Her match-high 21 digs and consistent defensive play have helped bring stability to the young team. But it's not just Cusack who has stepped up defensively for the Gators. Wise pointed out the improvement of freshman setter Cindy Bathelt (eight digs), who is now making an impact after being relied on solely to distribute the ball early in the season. "We're beginning to pick up balls in the back row that we should be picking up all the time," Wise said. Offensively, the story of the weekend was the emergence of freshman outside hitter Colleen Ward. Her career-high 15 kills against LSU and 10 in the win over Georgia have given an already loaded UF arsenal a new weapon. "Not only can she score points for us, but she can be low-error too," Wise said. "Sometimes you have players that can get you points, but then they give just as many to the other team. Colleen doesn't make those mistakes." Trying to get the always humble Wise to talk about her run of the SEC -she's won 17 consecutive conference championships -is nearly impossible, but needless to say it appears that the road to the title still runs through Gainesville. "Two and 0 at home is the right place to start, but it's a long season," Wise said. Moody sees increased carries, leads UF with 55 rushing yards FOOTBALL, from page 17 11-play, 60-yard drive. Facing 4th and 1 with six seconds remaining in the half, Crompton threw a pick to cornerback Janoris Jenkins. UF entered the half with a 20-0 lead. Game. Set. Match. "That wasn't us," coach Phil Fulmer said. "The penalties, the red-zone efforts .we've been outstanding in those areas (in our previous games). We never gave our defense a chance." One year ago, it was Tebow's defense that never gave him a chance. For the second time this season, the reigning Heisman Trophy winner had less than spectacular stats -he finished 8-of-15 for 96 yards and two touchdowns -but once again the Gators came away with an easy victory. "You can really count on (the defense)," Tebow said. "You don't have to force anything. It's a great thing. They're out there, and they're playing hard and making plays." And just when it appeared that UF was still a team without a workhorse running back, EmmanuelMoody finallyhad the game Gators fans have waited years for. Moody led UF with 55 yards on nine carries. "All I want to do is have Football a role," Moody said. "That doesn't mean I have to be the key guy in carries, but I just feel like the whole team has meshed together well and whatever part I play, I'm going to keep going hard." While this is Tennessee's first 1-2 start since 1994, the Gators still feel like this win is as important as any other they have enjoyed over the years. UF remembers how quickly fortunes can change. Last season, UF manhandled Tennessee, but the Volunteers still played in the Southeastem Conference Championship Game. "It was a huge step for us," Tebow said. "For the last 12 to 15 years, the winner of this game has had a lot of success in the SEC, and it gives you a lot of momentum. That surge going into SEC play, you can really feed off of and get focused." Gators may try more two-returner sets JAMES, from page 17 an 82-yard punt return for a touchdown. Neyland Stadium is also where James made his premiere starting appearance for the Gators. Earlier this week, Meyer relayed a story about how James first earned the starting puntreturner job one hour before the Tennessee game in 2006. Meyer was impressed with James' composure while fans were hurling obscenities the Gators way before that game two years ago. "I look at him, and he starts doing the Gator chomp," Meyer said. "That kid is not intimidated by anything, so I grabbed him and I said, "You're the punt returner today."' I look at him, and he starts doing the Gator chomp." Urban Meyer UF football coach James racked up 65 return yards on four punts including a long of 35 in that game. After James' reputation for the big play was reaffirmed early on Saturday, he didn't geta touch until the third quarter. The Gators, expecting Tennessee to punt away from James, put James and wide receiver Percy Harvin deep to catch the punt. James made the catch, then he and Harvin ran to the center of the field. James faked a pitch to Harvin and took the ball for 14 yards to the Volunteers' 47. "We'll probably do a bit more of that," Meyer said. "Those two back there can be lethal." During James' postgame interview, Meyer wedged his arm through a media crowd and doused James with water. The pride on Meyer's face was evident, and James laughed. "Something's wrong with coach, man," said James with a smile, water running down his face. "I'm going to get him after this." BRIAN, from page 17 and six carries doesn't qualify as letting perhaps the best athlete in the nation "loose." It does, however, make you wonder why UF hasn't actually "let it loose" yet. It's understandable to have a conservative offense when you have Chris Leak under center, and DeShawn Wynn plodding along behind him. It's not understandable when you have the only sophomore to ever win the Heisman Trophy and more than a handful of guys who run faster than a 4.3 40-yard dash. Why putt along in a Volvo when you have a Porsche? Why eat at McDonald's when you can be served filet mignon? Why be the church choir director if you've got the pipes of Aretha Franklin? Bottom line: Why play it safe? There's one thing that's dear so far in UF's season: This team has national championship potential. The defense has won games for this team, and that's after a year where they lost games and played like they were still at their high school proms. Wouldn't you have a sick feeling in your stomach if, at the end of the year, the Gators could've made it farther if they had opened up their playbook just a tad more?

You'd think the, Volunteers would have learned the first time. James set up the Qators' first touchdown drive with i ii [. a 52-yard kickoff return to KR/PR. Jr. open thegame, and his 78-yard punt return in the' first quarter broke the game open. After that, UF was up 17-0 and the rout was-on. -3 ret.,144 yds., I TO For the second straight week, Spikes led the Gators in tackles. Whatever injury was bothering him in the Gators' opener against, Hawaii is long gone., Spikes gets the nod because of his tackle numbers, but the entire MLB, Jr. UF defense really did a fantastic job, stifling the. Tennessee offense. Three games into the season, the Gators defense has allowed 19' points and looks better than the offense. 10 tackles, I TFL A momentum-swinging forced fumble on tiM Volunteers' first, drive combined with a gamekilling interception to end the first half and keep Ten nessee off the board puts the true freshman XTi Jenkins on our list 'for I~JiIflIY~ Swamp, Studs this week.
