percent win over McCain, with 93
percent of precincts accounted for.
Florida, a swing state known more
recently for leaning Republican, had
27 electoral votes at stake.
By press time, Alachua County
had counted 122,366 votes, though
not all early votes had been counted.
Obama received
59.94 percent of
votes, and 38.54
percent went
in support of
McCain.
One group of
Obama support-
ers celebrated
Obama the news outside
Bishop's Tavern, where they held
signs and sparklers and cheered
at passing cars and. chanted "N~o
more Bush!" on the corner of West
University Avenue and Main Street.
Soon after, police broke up the
crowd.
McShera said Obama's win
shows the unity of a country
brought together through his cam-
paign for the last two years and the
strength of the people to change the
federal government.
Patrick Kavanaugh, spokes-
man for the Florida Campaign for
Change, said Tuesday night was
the culmination of a campaign full
of people who love this country and
want to see it change.
SKavanaugh said he attributes the
campaign's success to its volunteers
who worked endlessly for Obama-
"It would never have happened
without them," he said.
Pam Carpenter, supervisor of
elections for Alachua County, said
this year's election was unprec-
edented in voter turnout-
More than 78 percent of the
county's 156,746 registered voters
cast votes in the election.
A record-breaking 53~556 voters
cast their ballots early.

After months of traveling, cam-
paigning and debating, Sen. Barack
Obama of Chicago, il., was chosen
as the 44th president of the United
States on Tuesday night.
Obama has served as. a senator
for Illinois since 2004. He will be the
country's first black president.
"I expected Barack to win," said
Mark McShera, editorial chairman
of UF College Democrats. "I didn't
think it would be such a blowout."
To win, Obama needed to receive
270 electoral votes. He received
337 as of press time, according to
73 percent of precincts accounted
for nationwide. He also took the
popular vote, with a 51.3 percent
win over the 47.5 percent received
by Sen. John McCain.

voters in other time zones to reach
last-minute voters across the coun-
try. The group's meeting was closed
to the media.
Republicans, both young and
old, gathered at the Alachua County
Republican Executive .Committee
Headquarters at l210 N. Main Street
to watch the results.
The room was filled with red,
white and blue decorations, and
the guests munched on salad, pasta
and finger food while watching the
results on a big-screen TV.
Katherine DeCesare, a McCain
volunteer, and her dog, Chloe, both
donned McCain-Palin shirts and
stickers. DeCesare said she attended
the party to support the candidates
and the campaign.
She said making phone calls
for the campaign and discussing
McCain's view for the country was
rewarding and made her feel like
she was part of something bigger.
"This is my government," she


said. "This is my country."
Democrats watched results
at Gator's Dockside at 3842 W.
Newberry Road.
As the results projected on the
screen showed victories in states
for Obama, partygoers raised their
glasses and cheered loudly for eaclr
of the senator's wins.
Randi Cameon, a volunteer for
the Obama campaign, said she came
to the results part after a long day of
canvassing.
"I wanted to be with my people
to see the results come in," Cameon
said.
She said although she knows it
will take a long time to reverse the
changes to the U.S. in the last eight
years, she knows it can be done.
"If Obama can govern the way he
has campaigned, it will be brilliant,"
she said.
Meanwhile, at the Student
Government Elections Bash in
the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom,


between 550 and 600 students gath-
ered to wait for the results.
As students trickled in starting
at 7:30 p.m., they followed ABC
news updates on a big screen while
ObamaBot jostled around a buffet
table with pizza and other snacks.
Student Government President
Kevin Reilly welcomed students,
acknowledging the "incredible"
turnout among young voters.
Nearing full occupancy, stu-
dents stood or sat around 22 round
tables decorated with red and blue
balloons from Cholimp the Vote,
chatting, occasionally erupting into
cheers when a candidate was shown
on the big screen.
As votes came in, Adam Prom,
UF political science junior, said he .
still had hope McCain would pull
through despite the growing gap in
Obama's favor.

Although some voters met
with problems on Election Day,
officials said long lines and faulty
ballots weren't the norm around
Gainesville.
Including the record-break-
ing 53,556 votes that were cast
early, about 78 percent of Alachua
County's registered voters took
part in the election.
Some students who said they
had registered on campus were
unable to vote when precincts
showed their registration to be
incomplete or nonexistent.
Pam Carpenter, Alachua
County Supervisor of Elections,
said the students had registered
with the New Voters Project by
Student Public Interest Research
Group, or Student PIRG.
About 10 to 12 students were
required to vote on provisional
ballots and will have until 5 p.m.
Thursday to confirm their regis-
trations, Carpenter said.
Poll workers at the Reitz Union
reported that a lawyer from the
Obama for America campaign
appeared inquiring aboxit com-
plamnts that workers were having
difficulty finding proof of regis-
tration from a few students.
Other people received a text
message stating incorrectly that


voting had been extended until
today.
"No one was taking that
original text message seriously,"
Carpenter said. "They pretty
much knew that Election Day was
today."
Still, an e-mail from Patricia
Telles-Irvin, vice president of
Student Affairs, was sent out to
students informing them of the il-
legitimacy of the text message.
Steve Orlando, UF spokesman,
said UF was unsure of who sent
the message but felt it was im-
portant to publish a correction,
particularly because it was many
students' first time voting.
"We wanted to set the record
straight," Orlando said.
Despite the slips-ups,
Carpenter said polling stations
throughout Gainesville and
Alachua County faced no serious
problems Tuesday.
Lorin J~ohnson, a UP freshman
who voted in the early afternoon
and brought a book to read while
waiting in line, said the process
was quick and painless, not at all
what she had expected.
With this being the first elec-
tion she was eligible to vote in,
Johnson felt it was important to
get out and choose a candidate.
"We have the ability to vote,
and we should take advantage of
it," she said.
A few- stragglers came rushing

into their polling places just before
closing time at 7 p.m., said Bob
Casey, a polLL worker and former
Florida House representative.
"The last guy came running
up and I told him, 'Man, you just
made it,"' Casey said. "And he
said, 'Yeah, I had to run several
red lights to get here."'"
Other voters got an early start.


Margaret Harris, an assistant clerk
at precinct 12, said 139 ballots
were cast in the first 10 minutes of
voting and that people were lined
up at 5:45 a.m.
Obama volunteers, who were
stationed outside polling centers
throughout Gainesville, also~ ar-
rived early. Volunteers handed
out Democratic sample ballots


and encouraged voters to select
Obama as president.
Volunteer Kathi Vellinga,
who was at a pollirig place at the
Amei-ican Cancer Society's Hope
Lodge on Southwest 16th Street at
10 a.m., said she had seen many
students voting that morning.
"It's good to see the energy on
both sides," Vellinga said.


UF's Tau Epsilon Phi Fraternity is under investigation
by University Police for hazing. '
Details of the hazing incidents were not available be-
cause the investigation is ongoing. No arrests were made
as of Tuesday afternoon, said UPD Sgt. Scott Summers.
Interim Dean of Students Paige Crandall said similar al-
legations against TEP were made in spring, but there was
not enough concrete evidence to substantiate the claims.
Chris Loschiavo, director of UF's Student Conduct and
Conflict Resolution Office, said the hazing allegations are
among the worst he has ever seen. He said hazing charges
could result in an organization's suspension or expulsion.
Loschiavo said once a reort, is finalized, the matter
would go to the Greek Conduct Committee, which would
then make a recommendation for punishment to Crandall.
The fraternity's chancellor, Adam Fischer, declined to


comment when reached by phone.
Crandall said she was disappointed by the fraternity's
reported actions given the precedent of
discipline used in the Pi Kappa Phi case.
In summer, the Pi Kappa Phi
~Fraternity was suspended for four years
~T~S~for allegations .0f forcing members of
its fall 2007 pledge class to do hours
of physical activity and consume large
amounts of alcohol.
Loschiavo "I guess what's disappointing and
frustrating is that the Greek community,
which is very close-knit, may not have heeded the results,
the actions, that were taken with the other group," Crandall
said.

SHE MAY HAVE PERFORMED
SEX ACT ON ROOMMATE.

University Police arrested a UF
student Tuesday on suspicion of sexual
assault.
The student, a 19-year-old sopho
more who lives in Springs Residential
Complex, could face a first-degree
felony charge after his roommate told
police he woke up to find the student
performing a sexual act on him in his
bed without his consent, according to a
UPD arrest report.


The defenldant's name is not
published to protect the roommate's
identity.
UPD Detective Jeff Moran said the
roommate~ came to the
On department on Tuesday
Campus to file a report about the
incident, which took
place at about 2:30 a.m. Monday, ac-
cording to the report.
The defendant said in a Tuesday in-
terview with Moran that he performed
the act and felt like he "forced himself"
On his roommate and "felt remorse for


his action," according to the report.
The arrested student was taken to
the Alachua County Jail at about 2:
15 p.m. Tuesday without posting bail.
A jail official said he was being held
overnight.
Spencer Mann, State Attorney
spokesman, said if convicted, the of-
- fense is punishable by up to 30 years in
prison and a $10,000 fine.
Paige Crandall, interim dean of
students, said students found guilty of
felony charges could face expulsion.

Actor Kal Penn campaigns for Obama on campus


IIHE RETURNED AFTER
GIVING A SPEECH IN AUGUST.

By DAVID CUMMING
Alligator Writer

Hungry Krishna lunch patrons
got more than their $4 worth when
actor Kal Penn walked through the
crowded line to make sure people
headed to the polls.
Penn, star of the "Harold &
Kumar" movies, zipped around
Thrlington Plaza, the~ Reitz Union,
Pugh Hall and even a few class-
rooms where he passed out precinct
fliers and encouraged students to
cast their ballots Tuesday.
"Gainesville and the county itself
is such a swing county, and it's go-
ing to be close no matter how you
look at it," Penn said.
Penn, who returned to UF for
a second time after his August ap-
pearance for voter registration, is a
volunteer for the Obama campaign,
Although his acting takes up four
to five days a week in California,
Penn said he volunteered inost of
his weekends touring campuses
around the country.
At UF, Penn stayed after 7 p.m.
when the polls closed, encouraging
people to stay in lines at various


voting locations. Penn called people
in Colorado and Nevada, states in
which polls wouldn't have closed
for a few more hours.
He also helped Yes We Van! drive
people to voting booths.
"Polls are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and
that doesn't mean that a last-minute
change of heart can't take place,"
said Jamie Mann, a UF freshman.
"So it's good that he's out here all
day."
Penn, an Independent, said
he met a student-volunteer in
Minnesota` who returned from Iraq
after being hit by an explosive, leav-
ing him in a wheelchair.
"He said he's volunteering every
day for the Obama campaign be-
cause, as he put it, 'I don't want any-
one else to go through what I went
through,'" Penn said. "They want
a better .solution for the direction
of our country. It's the most moving
thing I've ever seen in my life."
Although an Obama-Biden vic-
tory would be nice, he said, students
should keep the same attitude after
the elections.
"So many college students have
gotten involved in a campaign of
their choice," he said. "It would be
a shame after today, no matter who
wins, if we didn't continue to par-
ticipate in the political process."

Three Alachua County Commissioners
will keep their seats from 2008 to 2012 after
running for re-election.
Democratic incumbents Mike Byerly of
District 1, Paula DeLaney of District 3 and
Rodney Long of District 5 retained their
positions on the Alachua County Board of
County Commissioners in Tuesday's elec-
tion.
A nervous crowd, dominated by
Democrats, watched the results come in on
the second floor of the downtown County
Administration Building.
DeLaney and Byerly watched together.


DeLaney said she had butterflies as
early results from rural precincts showed
Republicans in the lead.
But with 86.7 percent of the precincts
reporting at about 7:45 p.m., DeLaney had
pulled ahead.
Byerly broke into a smile as he and Long
both surpassed their opponents when early
voting numbers started to come in.
"That was a tough hour," Byerly said.
By midnight, not all early votes had been
counted, but numbers from the Alachua
County Supervisor of Elections showed
Byerly with 57.3 percent of the vote and
DeLaney with 58.7 percent. Rodney Long
was ahead with 54.22 percent.
Surrounded by family and friends, Long
celebrated his re-election formally at the


Sweetwater Branch Inn.
"It's a historic night," he said, celebrating
his victory and the results of the presidential
election.
At Gainesville's Republican Headquarters
on North Main Street, more than 150 candi-
dates and supporters watched the results
over food, beer and disappointment.
Candidate Lloyd W. Bailey Jr., who had
run for District 3, said goodbye to fellow
candidate Ward Scott, who had rnm for
District 5, inviting him to share "tears in our
beers."
A three-time candidate, Bailey, who ran
against DeLaney, said he plans to run again.
"The County Commission is not my
ambition, but it is my duty," he said. "I
don't have an agenda. I'm a scuba instruc-
tor. I should be sitting on a boat listening to
Jimmy Buffett."
In his second run for county commission,
Scott said he felt that his campaign was bet-
ter informed about the community's needS.
"We did our homework," he said. "We
felt like we made good contact with the
community."
Scott said his campaign used scientific
research to better prepare for the election.
Kevin Riordan, candidate for District
1, remained optimistic until the end as he
waited with a crowd at Dragonfly restaurant
downtown.
The incumbent Democrats have years of
experience on the County Commission.
Long, the current chairman, has been on
the Commission for eight years.
He said his focus is on helping the less
fortunate in his district. He also has sup-
ported the construction and growth in East
Gainesville.
Long said his campaign ran smoothly,
though he said negative campaign ads from
his opponent did not help.
This will be Paula DeLaney's second
term on the commission.


The first campaign had a completely
different feel, with three major hurricanes
occurring and President George W. Bush
running for re-election, she said, adding that
this year has had a difference in the dynamic
because of that strength of influence.
She said her opponent, Bailey, has been
charming and her most fun opponent so far.
DeLaney has served as Gainesville's
mayor and said has spent her years as a lo-
cal politician focusing on the poverty in the
community, the increasing cost of energy,
criminal justice and taxes.
Byerly, a Gainesville resident for almost
30 years, has been on
the commission for eight
..years.
''He said his campaign
arhas been similar to past
campaigns, staying .vol-
unteer-oriented and being
outspent by his opponent,
Byerly Kevin Riordan.
Byerly said he will continue to make
energy and water conservation his main is-
sues, in addition to making investments that
will counteract the declining revenues.
He said he appreciates the huge turnout
this year and hopes it is a new trend.
Laura Bresko, a member of the Alachua
County Democratic Executive Committee
and the chapter president of Judy Levy
National Organization for Women, said she
was confident that the Democrats would
win the County Commission races, saying
it would be a "huge mistake" if they were
to lose.
"We are truly fortunate to have such an
intelligent, diligent commission," she said.
Bailey disagreed. He said it's important
to keep putting conservatives in the race
against liberals, even if there doesn't seem to
be a chance to win.
"The county's not ready yet. But it will
be. Eventually we will win," he said.

Editorial


Long Journey

Election's afterglow

won't last forever.
On Oct. 23, 2006, Time Magazine introduced us to Illinois
Sen. Barack Obama. The publication allowed the face
Oof a first-term U.S. senator to engulf the whole cover
with the headline, "Why Barack Obama Could Be the Next
President."
Two years and 12 days later, Obama locked up the presiden-
tial election in a decisive victory over Republican candidate Sen.
John McCain.
He is no longer Sen. Obama. He will be sworn in as 44th
president of the United States.
There was little controversy at the polls, and there have been
no cries of foul play. Despite the familiarity of the campaign
techniques, this election has delivered an electoral result that
hasn't been seen in more than a decade.
Obama wasn't named president by a U.S. Supreme Court
majority; he walloped his Republican counterpart.
En route to doing so, Obama won crucial victories in Florida,
Ohio and Indiana, each of which were pegged as "battleground
states" by major national news outlets.
We should all be aware of the electoral importance of the
Sunshine State. If our voters are able to properly cast their bal-
lots we're looking at you, Palm Beach then the winner of
'dxe state is rewarded with 10 percent of the 270 electoral votes
needed to become president.
Florida had voted Republican in 11 of the 14 elections before
2008, but Obama was able to eke out a slim victory.
For twvo years, since his face showed up on the cover of Time,
America has been submerged in Obama exposure.
We have heard his story, which has often been equated to the
American Dream, and we have been fed tales of his dedication
to both America's impoverished and its working class.
We have been subjected to the bad and' the cloudy, too.
Apparently, the cliche that all publicity is good publicity holds

et noomserem det to amount of anti-Obama sentiment,
whether spewed by Joe the Plumber or Sen. Hillary Clinton's
PUMAs, could have derailed what we have been calling the
Obama train.
Don't fret, McCain fans. The election may not have turned
out how you wanted, but there is still some comfort to be had in
McCain's losing effort.
Obama is entering the Oval Office in the midst of terrible
economic circumstances, a war on terror that won't seem to end
and a nation emerging as powerful enough to rival the longtime
hegemony of the U.S.
Obama does not have years of D.C. politics under his belt
like McCain, so stumbles are likely on the way, but do not take
pride in a faulty piece of Obama-generated tax or foreign policy
legislation. Instead, be proud that McCain will not have to be
the Hector to the economy's Achilles. McCamn's war hero status
will long outshine his political defeat, which will preserve the
reputation of a man who commands the nation's respect. For
that, conservative voters should be happy.
The rest of us should be watchful of our new president.
Obama has begun his honeymoon with the U.S., but it will only
last for so long. The nation's infatuation will quickly wear off.
Congress and the public offer newly elected presidents a
very small window of opportunity to ride the coattails of elec-
toral success before they start to clamp down on a new com-
mander in chief.
Obama's legacy could end as quickly as it began when Time
featured him on its cover. The problem for Obama is that a fall
as sudden as his rise would leave him with half of his term as
president to wallow in the contempt of a disappointed public.

When I first saw a front-page story about a UF pro-
gram encouraging bicycle use, I was more than
excited. I am a huge cycling advocate.
I sold my car and bought a bicycle six years ago while
living in Washington, D.C., because I couldn't afford
the gas, parking and insurance costs. Mostly though, I
couldn't afford the stress of driving around the nation's
capital.
When I first told friends what I wras doing, they begged
me to reconsider. My workplace was more than a dozen
miles from where I lived, and winter was fast approach-
ing. I was naively locking myself into a world of suffer-
ing.
Fortunately, my coworker in the cubicle next to me was
a cyclist mn his 50s. He and his girlfriend lived close to our
workplace. They both went on 50- to 60-mile cycling trips
in the area on the weekends. She biked to D.C. everyday
and worked close to where I lived. He explained to me
that, with the right equipment and a knowledge of the
bikeway system, cycling is an extremely realistic and inex-
pensive mode of transportation.
He commended the bikeway system in the tri-state area
and showed me a map of the bicycle paths through and
around D.C.
In most places, cyclists had their own road and weren't
forced onto the same roadway as 2-ton death machines.
My experience as a cyclist in D.C. was a carefree, fulfilling
One.
When I moved back to Gainesville, I thought it would
be ideal for cycling. After all, the weather is warmer and
the land is flatter. Gainesville calls itself the most bicycle-
friendly city in Florida, but it took no time for me to realize
the stark difference between the cities for a cyclist.
I have been hit by cars on three separate occasions in
my harrowing adventures around Gainesville.


Anyone who looks at a map
of the bikeways in Gainesville
realizes right away why students
choose not to- ride their bicycles.
Although there is a nice system
of bikeways on the edges of the
Michael Belle town and far away from UF, the
letters@alligator.org area connecting off-campus life to
UF is not safe for cycling.
Alachua County has had a
Bicycle Master Plan on the books for years now. Bikeways
providing alternatives to risking life and limb on Archer
Road, Newberry/University Avenue and 20th Avenue are
at the top of the list.
Unfortunately, there has been very little funding to
make it happen. Road maintenance is expensive and
behind schedule. I think it could be quite a while before
we see even the beginning of the Alachua County Bicycle
Master Plan put into action.
In the meantime, it is laughable to suggest that renting
cheap bicycles to students on campus for a short period
of time promotes cycling as an alternative mode of trans-
portation. How many students are really driving their cars
around campus?
The transportation issue is off campus, where cars idle
in clogged roads and contribute filth to the air.
If President Bernie Machen really wants to convert stu-
dents from motorists to cyclists, he would team up with
the county and find the money to~implement the Bicycle
Master Plan. Machen has more clout in the state than any
county commissioner and could speed up the process if he
so chooses. This is aside from the funds that UF already
has to throw away on cheap bicycles no one will use.
Michael Belle is a political science graduate student. His
column appears on Wednesdayls.

Letters to the Editor
Abortion jargon hinders debate
We kn~ow political discourse
is mostly rhetoric, not debate.
Abortion is the only major issue in
which the words used to identify
your point of view are meaningless
rhetorical euphemisms.
We know the meanings of "pro-
universal-health-care" and "anti-
gay-marriage," but what is "Ipro-
life"? Who could be against life?
Who could be against choice?
For pro-life, the problem is many
of those identifying themselves as
such (Republicans) are not even


Voter registration groups have
serious responsibility
I am new to Florida, and I have
recently registered to vote here be
cause I knew my vote would mean
a lot more in Florida than in my
home state of Texas.
I filled out a registration form
and turned it in with a student
group that had a table set up on
the Plaza of the Americas.
When I went to vote on Friday,
I was not in any of the databases as
being registered.


I was told that several other
People had come in with the same
situation: registered on campus,
but not in the system.
These groups need to be held
accountable in some way if they're
going to be in charge of a person's
ability to vote.
I don't know if they were affili-
ated with a particular campaign,
but they should be identified as
such.

close to consistent in supporting
life. Those claiming to value life are
OK with bloody wars and execu-
tions. Pro-life is acceptable when it
applies to the few people who con-
sistently oppose abortion, the death
penalty and war. However, if you
oppose abortion but are OK with
capital punishment and non-defen-
sive wars, you are not pro-life.
As for pro-choice, it's not so
much inherent hypocrisy, but it's
such an astoundingly broad, mean-
ingless euphemism. Vague euphe-
misms indicate that you are ont


some level ashamed of your beliefs.
It smacks of the antebellum South's
"peculiar institution." If you think
abortion is OK, which is a perfectly
reasonable position, then don't be
afraid to say it.
The abortion debate will never
turn into real dialogue with both
sides recognizing each other's good
points, rather than shouting at each
other's brick walls, until we startby
using direct and honest language.

shot because the country's enamored by Barack
Obama," he said.
Political science experts at UF said this elec-
tion was set apart from previous ones, both in
activism and voter participation.
Daniel Smith, an associate professor of politi-
cal science specializing in political campaigning,
called voter turnout monumental. Tinnout is
expected to be more than 60 percent nationwide,
he said.
Michael Heaney, an associate professor at UF,
said he thought this year was more clear-cut than
recent neck-and-neck elections.
He said both candidates ran disciplined cam-
paigns with no major mistakes committed by ei-
ther party, which focused the race on the issues.
"This election was not really about the candi-
date, but more about who does the public trust
more on the economy," he said.
As results slowly trickled in, both parties re-
joiced and booed at the decided states.
And as polls started showing Obama's lead
in the polls, Republicans slowly filed out of the
headquarters, though some remained to rejoice
in the party's wins in Congressional seats and in
McCain's state wins.
At Gator's Dockside, Democrats hugged and
clapped and raised their hands in happiness as
they chanted "O-ba-ma!"
One man banged on a drum; some attempted
phone calls within the noisy crowd; and many
cried tears of joy as they embraced loved ones.
McShera said he hoped Obama would start
implementing his platform and making changes
in the first 100 days of his administration.
Overall, McShera said this win was a huge
victory for the party he supports.
"It's a fantastic day to be a Democrat," he

I I ~SEC Tourney starts with 'BamB


more than UF. The Gators' resume is already good
enough to qualify them for the NCAA Tournament,
one of the few SEC teams able to say that.
Having a possible berth into the NCAA
Tournament up for grabs should lift the energy levels
of the rest of the conference.
"Every team from here on out is going to bring it
because they know their NCAA is on the line, and
this may be their last game," first-team, All-SEC mid-
fielder Ashlee Elliott said.
Seniors Ameera Abdullah and Megan Kerns-were
the other two Gators on the first team with junior
Lauren Hyde getting second-team honors, w ~ch
were announced on Tuesday.
"I didn't have one of my best games
against Alabama, so I feel I have some-
thing to prove."
Jazmyne Avant
UF freshman deferider

UF coach and SEC Coach of the Year Becky
Burleigh has emphasized to her team the importance
of not taking a team lightly, coming in overconfident
and preparing for one team at a time.
Amajor concerh~is the tactical changes the Crimson
Tide will make to produce a better result against the
Gators.
Burleigh said the changes made by an opposing
team are the hard part about playing a team for the
second time.
While Burleigh has her worries about playing a
team twice, Avant can't wait to get a second go at
some in-conference rivals.
"As a freshman, I didn't really feel like I had
anything to play for because I never had any prob-
lems with any of the teams or rivalries," Avant said.
"Now that I have played teams, my mentality has
changed."

For Jazmyne Avant, the Southeastern Conference
Tournament isn't just a way to get an automatic bid in
the NCAA Tournament. It's also a way to get redemp-
tion for poor performances in previous matches.
The freshman defender was thrown right into the
college soccer world since arrivng on campus, start-
ing every game ~this season the only freshman on
the Gators to do so.
She helped silence any questions about No. 7 UF's
inexperienced defense entering the season with her
strong play, but there are still games she wishes she
could play again.
Today, the SEC All-Freshmen Team member will
get her second chance at one of those games when
No. 1 seed UF (16-2-1, 11-0 SEC) takes on No. 8 seed
Alabama (9-8-2, 4-6-1) in the opening match of the
SEC Tournament.
"I didn't have one of my best games against
Alabama, so I feel I have something to prove," Avant
said. "That goes for a lot of people, maybe not against
Alabama, but we have other reasons to play hard
other than just winning.
The Gators won the first meeting 6-1, but they need
to forget about that and the other 10 wins in confer-
ence play because the seven other teams competing
in the tournament are waiting for their chance for
payback.
With a 23-game winning streak including going
undefeated this season against conference oppo-
nents, they can expect teams to be gunning for them a
little harder to kn~ock the Gators off.
This has them feeling a little paranoid.
"We feel like every one is out to get us, and a lot
of teams have something against us that they didn't
have before," Avant said.
Other teams in the SEC need the automatic bid

Nelson kept it a close affair but couldn't
escape a 3 and 2 loss.
Uzelatz had momentum in the early
stages but squandered it and never got it
back as she lost 4 and 3.
Now the Gators will have until Feb.
9 before seeing the greens again, when
they'll travel to Palos Verdes, Calif., for the
Northrop Grumman tournament.
Briles-Hinton said the team will focus on
one thing this offseason.
"We, without a doubt, have to work on
our short game," Briles-Hinton said. "That
was a lesson learned this week for these
girls: 'My short game needs. to be better than
anybody's.'"

At least there's a spring season.
The UF women's golf team finished its
fall season on a disappointing note, losing to
16th-seeded Tulsa 3-1-1 in the last round at
the Match Play in Orlando on Tuesday.
On a positive note, it was no surprise
as the Gators were led by their freshmen
- again.
Freshman Evan Jensen swiped-JF's sole
victory from Tulsa's Shu-Yin Liu in thrilling
fashion,
Liu led for 14 consecutive holes before
Jensen tied it up on the second-to-last hole.
Jensen got the win on the last hole.


At one point, Liu held a 4-hole lead
against Jensen.
"(Liu) made a few putts early on that put
me down quick," Jensen said.
Jensen said she buckled down and
stopped worrying about what her opponent
was doing.
Jensen, the Gators' best player this tour-
nament, boasted a 2-1 record in her three
matches.
"Mentally tough," coach Jill Briles-
Hinton said when describing Jensen. "She
won quite a few holes when she was down,
and that shows mental toughness."
The next best golfer was fellow freshman
Andrea Watts.
Watts halved her match meaning her


and her opponent finished the match tied.
Watts and Tulsa's Woori Shin traded
holes throughout the match before Watts
gained the upper hand in
.the second-to-last hole.
It was a fleeting lead, as
Shin saved face for the tie.
For her three rounds,
Watts finished 1-1-1.
"One of the best swings
in golf," Briles-Hinton
Jensen said about Watts.
Nicole Schachner, Brittany Nelson and
Lauren Uzelatz didn't fare as well against
their respective opponents.
Schachner, who was filling in for top
golfer Jessica Yadloczky dropped her match

Hampton finds assistant coaching job at P.K. Yonge


KAR L, from page14

pointed by it.
Also, there is no guarantee a playoff
would truly crown the best team in the coun-
try. College football is based entirely upon
making as much money as possible for the
NCAA and the college presidents.
This means that in a pretend playoff, the
winners of the six BCS conferences would re-
ceive automatic bids, and Notre Dame would
have some loophole created so it could get
into the championship. That leaves two at-
large bids available at the most.
Using this season as an example, let's pre
tend Texas Tech, UF, Penn State, Southern Cal,
Georgia Tech and West Virginia lock up their
respective conferences. Acnd let's also imagine
Utah, by virtue of being an undefeated mid-
major, and Texas receive the at-large bids.
We still would have a screwyr playoff with


grader. "You can look back and say maybe we
could've gone farther."
In the end, UF was unable to capture
a national title before losing Hampton,
Amber McCray, Angie McGinnis and Kisya
Killingsworth to graduation. Some thought
that nucleus of players had what it took to
finally bring home that~ championship, but
Hampton is optimistic the new group of
Gators will be able to get it done.
"It's just matter of time," she said. "They
have the talent, and they have the coaching."
Cusack said that if the teamnis able to pull it
off in her time at UF, the feat would be some-
thing for everyone to share.
"It would be an'honor for me, but it would
mean so much to all the previous players, do-
ing something that they worked so hard for
but just couldn't get," she said.
SIf they ever do hoist that elusive banner
into the rafters, you can bet Hampton will
have a front-row seat.


By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer
.rkmaistri@alligator.org

For Marcie Hampton, there are no more
long practices with 13 other players who she
has come to call "sisters."
No more road trips to Fayetteville, Ark., or
Starkville, Miss.
No more launching miniature volleyballs
into the O'Connell Center stands during the
bla ~ied-out player introductions.
Though her storied four-year career with,
UF came to an end after she suffered a rup-
tured left Achilles' tendon in the Gators' final
regular season match against Long Beach State
in 2007, Hampton isn~'tdone with volleyball in
Gainesville.
Nite former outside hitter has taken an as-
sistant coaching job at P.K. Yonge High, where
she and current UF standout Elyse Cusack
once graced the same hardwood.


"Its really cool being in the old gym that I
used to play in," Hampton said. "The pictures
of our state championship teams are up. It's
neat to go back tb where it all began."
The step backward into her past was made,
in part, because fate took away her ability to
step forward into her future.
Hlampton had aspirations of going out on
top, winning UF's first-ever national champi-
onship and then making a seamless transition
to a professional career overseas.
But recovering from the injury has proven
to be a long and taxing process she has yet to
complete. In the meantime, Hampton's com-
petitive nature and need for a job made
high school coaching a perfect stop.
UF coach Mary Wise frequently teased
her during her playing days that she would
become a coach because she loved the game
too much.
"It's a lot -different," Hampton said of
coaching and playing. "I've enjoyed coaching


more than I thought I would, it's a lot more
than sitting there telling the girls what to do."
The girls she works with make the job fun
for her, and it's allowed her to stay around the
sport that was taken away from her, some-
thing she's only recently come to grips with.
'7 try to tell myself ev-
erything happens for a rea-
son," Hampton said. "You
put so much of your life,
blood, sweat and tears into
it, and you finally get to the
point where you're play-
ing well, and your team is

work out."
Hampton and the Gators were robbed of
one last postseason run, something her team-
mates never saw coming.
"To have her go down was really hard
for our teamn and for me," said Cusack, who
first played with Hampton as an eighth


two teams (Georgia Tech and West Virginia)
that have no business being in the tournament
while great teams like Oklahoma, Oklahoma
State and Alabama would be left out in the
cold. Any of those three teams would be good
enough to win an eight-team playoff, but
none would be given the opportunity.
You might say the solution would be to
just take the top eight teams in the BCS and
ign~ore conferences altogether, but that's just
unrealistic. I don't think there's any way
college football will ever move to a playoff.
There's too much money to be lost from bowl
games, but even if they did, the only way they
would consider it is if the six BCS conferences
received automatic bids.
With the possibility that a playoff could be
nearly as unsatisfying as a bunch of dudes in
front of a computer crunching numbers, why
not simply enjoy the endless possibilities of
the BCS?;

You Decide. ?J~ecyc'Ie\) A-./ WEDNESDlAY NAVEMBF 8 0 'I Will Be Your President' Sen. Barack Obama to be first black president after historic election By ANDREA ASUAJE Alligator Writer aasuaje@almigator.org After months of traveling, campaigning and debating, Sen. Barack Obama of Chicago, Ill., was chosen as the 44th president of the United States on Tuesday night. Obama has served as a senator for Mlinois since 2004. He will be the country's first black president. "I expected Barack to win," said Mark McShera, editorial chairman of UF College Democrats. "I didn't think it would be such a blowout." To win, Obama needed to receive 270 electoral votes. He received 337 as of press time, according to 73 percent of precincts accounted for nationwide. He also took the popular vote, with a 51.3 percent win over the 47.5 percent received by Sen. John McCain. Obama took Florida in a 51 Election Winners President: Barack Obama Congress (District 6): Cliff Stearns House of Representatives (District 23): Charles -Chestnut IV County Commission District 1: Mike Byerly County Commission District 3: Paula M.

Florida, a swing state known more recently for leaning Republican, had 27 electoral votes at stake. By press time, Alachua County had counted 122,366 votes, though not all early votes had been counted. Obama received 59.94 percent of votes, and 38.54 percent went in support of McCain. One group of Obama supporters celebrated Obama the news outside Bishop's Tavern, where they held signs and sparklers and cheered at passing cars and. chanted "No more Bush!" on the corner of West University Avenue and Main Street. Soon after, police broke up the crowd. McShera said Obama's win shows the unity of a country brought together through his campaign for the last two years and the strength of the people to change the federal governmeAt. Patrick Kavanaugh, spokesman for the Florida Campaign for Change, said Tuesday night was the culmination of a campaign full of people who love this country and want to see it change. Kavanaugh said he attributes the campaign's success to its volunteers who worked endlessly for Obama. "It would never have happened without them," he said. Pam Carpenter, supervisor of elections for Alachua County, said this year's election was unprecedented in voter turnout. More than 78 percent of the county's 156,746 registered voters cast votes in the election. A record-breaking 53,556 voters cast their ballots.early. Political groups on campus, such the UF College Republicans and UF College Democrats, held electionwatching parties in Gainesville on Tuesday night.

The group's meeting was closed to the media. Republicans, both young and old, gathered at the Alachua County Republican Executive Committee Headquarters at 1210 N. Main Street to watch the results. The room was filled with red, white and blue decorations, and the guests munched on salad, pasta and finger food while watching the results on a big-screen TV. Katherine DeCesare, a McCain volunteer, and her dog, Chloe, both donned McCain-Palin shirts and stickers. DeCesare said she attended the party to support the candidates and the campaign. She said making phone calls for the campaign and discussing McCain's view for the country was rewarding and made her feel like she was part of something bigger. "This is my government," she said. "This is my country." Democrats watched results at Gator's Dockside at 3842 W. Newberry Road. As the results projected on the screen showed victories in states for Obama, partygoers raised their glasses and cheered loudly for eacof the senator's wins. Randi Cameon, a volunteer for the Obama campaign, said she came to the results part after a long day of canvassing. "I wanted to be with my people to see the results come in," Cameon said. She said although she knows it will take a long time to reverse the changes to the U.S. in the last eight years, she knows it can be done. "If Obama can govern the way he has campaigned, it will be brilliant," she said. Meanwhile, at the Student Govermnent Elections Bash in the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom, between 550 and 600 students gathered to wait for the results. As students trickled in starting at 7:30 p.m., they followed ABC news updates on a big screen while ObamaBot jostled around a buffet table with pizza and other snacks. Student Govermnent President Kevin Reilly welcomed students, acknowledging the "incredible" turnout among young voters. Nearing full occupancy, students stood or sat around 22 round tables decorated with red and blue balloons from Chomp the Vote, chatting, occasionally erupting into cheers when a candidate was shown on the big screen. As votes came in, Adam Prom, UF political science junior, said he still had hope McCain would pull through despite the growing gap in Obana's favor.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 2008 E ALLIGATOR, 3 78 percent of local registered voters cast ballots No major problems at polls By ANDREA ASUAJE, RENEE COLE and KYLE MAISTRI Alligator Writers Although some voters met with problems on Election Day, officials said long lines and faulty ballots weren't the norm around Gainesville. Including the record-breaking 53,556 votes that were cast early, about 78 percent of Alachua County's registered voters took part in the election. Some students who said they had registered on campus were unable to vote when precincts showed their registration to be incomplete or nonexistent. Pam Carpenter, Alachua County Supervisor of Elections, said the students had registered with the New Voters Project by Student Public Interest Research Group, or Student PIRG. About 10 to 12 students were required to vote on provisional ballots and will have until 5 p.m. Thursday to confirm their registrations, Carpenter said. Poll workers at the Reitz Union reported that a lawyer from the Obama for America campaign appeared inquiring about complaints that workers were having difficulty finding proof of registration from a few students. Other people received a text message stating incorrectly that voting had been extended until today. "No one was taking that original text message seriously," Carpenter said. "They pretty much knew that Election Day was today." Still, an e-mail from Patricia Telles-Irvin, vice president of Student Affairs, was sent out to students informing them of the illegitimacy of the text message. Steve Orlando, UF spokesman, said UF was unsure of who sent the message but felt it was important to publish a correction, particularly because it was many students' first time voting. "We wanted to set the record straight," Orlando said. Despite the slips-ups, Carpenter said polling stations throughout Gainesville and Alachua County faced no serious problems Tuesday. Lorin Johnson, a UP freshman who voted in the early afternoon and brought a book to read while waiting in line, said the process was quick and painless, not at all what she had expected. With this being the first election she was eligible to vote in, Johnson felt it was important to get out and choose a candidate. "We have the ability to vote, and we should take advantage of it," she said.

"It's good to see the energy on both sides," Vellinga said.

University Police arrested a UF student Tuesday on suspicion of sexual assault. The student, a 19-year-old sophomore who lives in Springs Residential Complex, could face a first-degree felony charge after his roommate told police he woke up to find the student performing a sexual act on him in his bed without his consent, according to a UPD arrest report.

The arrested student was taken to the Alachua County Jail at about 2: 15 p.m. Tuesday without posting bail. A jail official said he was being held overnight. Spencer Mann, State Attorney spokesman, said if convicted, the offense is punishable by up to 30 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

4, ALLIGATOR 0 WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 5,2008 Actor Kal Penn campaigns for Obama on campus 0 HE RETURNED AFTER GIVING A SPEECH IN AUGUST. By DAVID CUMMING Alligator Writer Hungry Krishna lunch patrons got more than their $4 worth when actor Kal Penn walked through the crowded line to make sure people headed to the polls. Penn, star of the "Harold & Kumar" movies, zipped around Turlington Plaza, the Reitz Union, Pugh Hall and even a few classrooms where he passed out precinct fliers and encouraged students to cast their ballots Tuesday "Gainesville and the county itself is such a swing county, and it's going to be close no matter how you look at it," Penn said. Penn, who returned to UF for a second time after his August appearance for voter registration, is a volunteer for the Obama campaign. Although his acting takes up four to five days a week in California, Penn said he volunteered most of his weekends touring campuses around the country. At UF, Penn stayed after 7 p.m. when the pol cl osed, encouraging people to stay in lines at various voting locations. Penn called people in Colorado and Nevada, states in which polls wouldn't have closed for a few more hours. He also helped Yes We Van! drive people to voting booths. "Polls are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and that doesn't mean that a last-minute change of heart can't take place," said Jamie Mann, a UF freshman. "So it's good that he's out here all day" Penn, an Independent, said he met a student-volunteer in Minnesota who returned from Iraq after being hit by an explosive, leaving him in a wheelchair. "He said he's volunteering every day for the Obama campaign because, as he put it, 'I don't want anyone else to go through what I went through,'" Penn said. "They want a better solution for the direction of our country. It's the most moving thing I've ever seen in my life." Although an Obama-Biden victory would be nice, he said, students should keep the same attitude after the elections. "So many college students have gotten involved in a campaign of their choice," he said. "It would be a shame after today, no matter who wins, if we didn't continue to partidipate in the political process." Harrison Diamond / Alligator Staff Actor and Obama supporter Kal Penn hands a signed information leaflet to a student talking on a phone during his walk around UF's campus on Tuesday. LOCAL ELECTION Byerly, DeLaney, Long win commission re-election bids By FAITH REAVES and KATHRYN WATSON Alligator Contributing Writers Three Alachua County Commissioners will keep their seats from 2008 to 2012 after running for re-election. Democratic incumbents Mike Byerly of District 1, Paula DeLaney of District 3 and Rodney Long of District 5 retained their positions on the Alachua County Board of County Commissioners in Tuesday's election. A nervous crowd, dominated by Democrats, watched the results come in on the second floor of the downtown County Administration Building. DeLaney and Byerly watched together. DeLaney said she had butterflies as early results from rural precincts showed Republicans in the lead. But with 86.7 percent of the precincts reporting at about 7:45 p.m., DeLaney had pulled ahead. Byerly broke into a smile as he and Long both surpassed their opponents when early voting numbers started to come in. "That was a tough hour," Byerly said. By midnight, not all early votes had been counted, but numbers from the Alachua County Supervisor of Elections showed Byerly with 57.3 percent of the vote and DeLaney with 58.7 percent. Rodney Long was ahead with 54.22 percent. Surrounded by family and friends, Long celebrated his re-election formally at the Erin Green / Alligator Commissioner Paula DeLaney celebrates with her husband, Bruce, after the announcement of Sen. Barack Obama's win at Gator's Dockside on Tuesday night. Sweetwater Branch Inn. "It's a historic night," he said, celebrating his victory and the results of the presidential election. AtGainesville's Republican Headquarters on North Main Street, more than 150 candidates and supporters watched the results over food, beer and disappointment. Candidate Lloyd W. Bailey Jr., who had run for District 3, said goodbye to fellow candidate Ward Scott, who had run for District 5, inviting him to share "tears in our beers." A three-time candidate, Bailey, who ran against DeLaney, said he plans to run again. "The County Commission is not my ambition, but it is my duty," he said. "I don't have an agenda. I'm a scuba instructor. I should be sitting on a boat listening to Jimmy Buffett." In his second run for county commission, Scott said he felt that his campaign was better informed about the community's needs. "We did our homework," he said. "We felt like we made good contact with the community." Scott said his campaign used scientific research to better prepare for the election. Kevin Riordan, candidate for District 1, remained optimistic until the end as he waited with a crowd at Dragonfly restaurant downtown. The incumbent Democrats have years of experience on the County Commission. Long, the current chairman, has been on the Commission for eight years. He said his focus is on helping the less fortunate in his district. He also has supported the construction and growth in East Gainesville. Long said his campaign ran smoothly, though he said negative campaign ads from his opponent did not help. This will be Paula DeLaney's second term on the commission. The first campaign had a completely different feel, with three major hurricanes occurring and President George W. Bush running for re-election, she said, adding that this year has had a difference in the dynamic because of that strength of influence. She said her opponent, Bailey, has been charming and her most fun opponent so far. DeLaney has served as Gainesville's mayor and said has spent her years as a local politician focusing on the poverty in the community, the increasing cost of energy, criminal justice and taxes. Byerly a Gainesville resident for almost W 30 years, has been on the commission for eight Years. He said his campaign has been similar to past campaigns, staying volunteer-oriented and being outspent by his opponent, B3yorly Kevin Riordan. Byerly said he will continue to make energy and water conservation his main issues, in addition to making investments that will counteract the declining revenues. He said he appreciates the huge turnout this year and hopes it is a new trend. Laura Bresko, a member of the Alachua County Democratic Executive Committee and the chapter president of Judy Levy National Organization for Women, said she was confident that the Democrats would win the County Commission races, saying it would be a "huge mistake" if they were to lose. "We are truly fortunate to have such an intelligent, diligent commission," she said. Bailey disagreed. He said it's important to keep putting conservatives in the race against liberals, even if there doesn't seem to be a chance to win. "The county's not ready yet. But it will be.

6, ALLIGATOR E WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 5,2008 Editorial Long Journey Election's afterglow won't last forever On Oct. 23, 2006, Time Magazine introduced us to Illinois Sen. Barack Obama. The publication allowed the face of a first-term U.S. senator to engulf the whole cover with the headline, "Why Barack Obama Could Be the Next President." Two years and 12 days later, Obama locked up the presidential election in a decisive victory over Republican candidate Sen. John McCain. He is no longer Sen. Obama. He will be sworn in as 44th president of the United States. There was little controversy at the polls, and there have been no cries of foul play. Despite the familiarity of the campaign techniques, this election has delivered an electoral result that hasn't been seen in more than a decade. Obama wasn't named president by a U.S. Supreme Court majority; he walloped his Republican counterpart. En route to doing so, Obama won crucial victories in Florida, Ohio and Indiana, each of which were pegged as "battleground states" by major national news outlets. We should all be aware of the electoral importance of the Sunshine State. If our voters are able to properly cast their ballots -we're looking at you, Palm Beach -then the winner of ,the state is rewarded with 10 percent of the 270 electoral votes needed to become president. Florida had voted Republican in 11 of the 14 elections before 2008, but Obama was able to eke out a slim victory. For two years, since his face showed up on the cover of Time, America has been submerged in Obama exposure. We have heard his story, which has often been equated to the American Dream, and we have been fed tales of his dedication to both America's impoverished and its working class. We have been subjected to the bad and the cloudy, too. Apparently, the cich6 that all publicity is good publicity holds true for our president-elect. It now seems that no amount of anti-Obama sentiment, whether spewed by Joe the Plumber or Sen. Hillary Clinton's PUMAs, could have derailed what we have been calling the Obama train. Don't fret, McCain fans. The election may not have turned out how you wanted, but there is still some comfort to be had in McCain's losing effort. Obama is entering the Oval Office in the midst of terrible economic circumstances, a war on terror that won't seem to end and a nation emerging as powerful enough to rival the longtime hegemony of the U.S. Obama does not have years of D.C. politics under his belt like McCain, so stumbles are likely on the way, but do not take pride in a faulty piece of Obama-generated tax or foreign policy legislation. Instead, be proud that McCain will not have to be the Hector to the economy's Achilles. McCain's war hero status will long outshine his political defeat, which will preserve the reputation of a man who commands the nation's respect. For that, conservative voters should be happy. The rest of us should be watchful of our new president. Obama has begun his honeymoon with the U.S., but it will only last for so long. The nation's infatuation will quickly wear off. Congress and the public offer newly elected presidents a very small window of opportunity to ride the coattails of electoral success before they start to clamp down on a new commander in chief. Obama's legacy could end as quickly as it began when Time featured him on its cover. The problem for Obama is that a fall as sudden as his rise would leave him with half of his term as president to wallow in the contempt of a disappointed public.

Opinions ALLIGATOR www.alligator.org/opinion Column Rental bicycles won't lower car use hen I first saw a front-page story about a UF program encouraging bicycle use, I was more than excited. I am a huge cycling advocate. I sold my car and bought a bicycle six years ago while living in Washington, D.C., because I couldn't afford the gas, parking and insurance costs. Mostly though, I couldn't afford the stress of driving around the nation's capital. When I first told friends what I was doing, they begged me to reconsider. My workplace was more than a dozen miles from where I lived, and winter was fast approaching. I was naively locking myself into a world of suffering. Fortunately, my coworker in the cubicle next to me was a cyclist in his 50s. He and his girlfriend lived close to our workplace. They both went on 50to 60-mile cycling trips in the area on the weekends. She biked to D.C. everyday and worked close to where I lived. He explained to me that, with the right equipment and a knowledge of the bikeway system, cycling is an extremely realistic and inexpensive mode of transportation. He commended the bikeway system in the tri-state area and showed me a map of the bicycle paths through and around D.C. In most places, cyclists had their own road and weren't forced onto the same roadway as 2-ton death machines. My experience as a cyclist in D.C. was a carefree, fulfilling one. When I moved back to Gainesville, I thought it would be ideal for cycling. After all, the weather is warmer and the land is flatter. Gainesville calls itself the most bicyclefriendly city in Florida, but it took no time for me to realize the stark difference between the cities for a cyclist. I have been hit by cars on three separate occasions in my harrowing adventures around Gainesville. Michael Belle Ietters@alligator.org Anyone who looks at a map of the bikeways in Gainesville realizes right away why students choose not toride their bicycles. Although there is a nice system of bikeways on the edges of the town and far away from UF, the area connecting off-campus life to UF is not safe for cycling. Alachua County has had a Bicycle Master Plan on the books for years now. Bikeways providing alternatives to risking life and limb on Archer Road, Newberry/University Avenue and 20th Avenue are at the top of the list. Unfortunately, there has been very little funding to make it happen. Road maintenance is expensive and behind schedule. I think it could be quite a while before we see even the beginning of the Alachua County Bicycle Master Plan put into action. In the meantime, it is laughable to suggest that renting cheap bicycles to students on campus for a short period of time promotes cycling as an alternative mode of transportation. How many students are really driving their cars around campus? The transportation issue is off campus, where cars idle in clogged roads and contribute filth to the air. If President Bernie Machen really wants to convert students from motorists to cyclists, he would team up with the county and-find the money to implement the Bicycle Master Plan. Machen has more clout in the state than any county commissioner and could speed up the process if he so chooses. This is aside from the fuids that UF already has to throw away on cheap bicycles no one will use. Michael Belle is a political sci'nce graduate student. His column appears on Wednesdays.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 7 Letters to the Editor Abortion jargon hinders debate We know political discourse is mostly rhetoric, not debate. Abortion is the only major issue in which the words used to identify your point of view are meaningless rhetorical euphemisms. We know the meanings of "prouniversal-health-care" and "antigay-marriage," but what is "prolife"? Who could be against life? Who could be against choice? For pro-life, the problem is many of those identifying themselves as such (Republicans) are not even close to consistent in supporting life. Those claiming to value life are OK with bloody wars and executions. Pro-life is acceptable when it applies to the few people who consistently oppose abortion, the death penalty and war. However, if you oppose abortion but are OK with capital punishment and non-defensive wars, you are not pro-life. As for pro-choice, it's not so much inherent hypocrisy, but it's such an astoundingly broad, meaningless euphemism. Vague euphemisms indicate that you are on some level ashamed of your beliefs. It smacks of the antebellum South's "peculiar institution." If you think abortion is OK, which is a perfectly reasonable position, then don't be afraid to say it. The abortion debate will never turn into real dialogue with both sides recognizing each other's good points, rather than shouting at each other's brick walls, until we start by using direct and honest language. Michael Barbieri UF Alumnus Voter registration groups have serious responsibility I am new to Florida, and I have recently registered to vote here because I knew my vote would mean a lot more in Florida than in my home state of Texas. I filled out a registration form and turned it in with a student group that had a table set up on the Plaza of the Americas. When I went to vote on Friday, I was not in any of the databases as being registered. I was told that several other people had come in with the same situation: registered on campus, but not in the system. These groups need to be held accountable in some way if they're going to be in charge of a person's ability to vote. I don't know if they were affiliated with a particular campaign, but they should be identified as such.

Friday @ midnight shot because the counters enamored by Barack Obama," he said. Political science experts at UF said this election was set apart from previous ones, both in activism and voter participation. Daniel Smith, an associate professor of political science specializing in political campaigning, called voter turnout monumental. Turnout is expected to be more than 60 percent nationwide, he said. Michael Heaney, an associate professor at UF, said he thought this year was more dear-cut than recent neck-and-neck elections. He said both candidates ran disciplined campaigns with no major mistakes committed by either party, which focused the race on the issues. "This election was not really about the candidate, but more about who does the public trust more on the economy," he said. As results slowly trickled in, both parties rejoiced and booed at the decided states. And as polls started showing Obama's lead in the polls, Republicans slowly filed out of the headquarters, though some remained to rejoice in the party's wins in Congressional seats and in McCain's state wins. At Gator's Dockside, Democrats hugged and clapped and raised their hands in happiness as they chanted "O-ba-ma!" One man banged on a drum; some attempted phone calls within the noisy crowd; and many cried tears of joy as they embraced loved ones. McShera said he hoped Obama would start implementing his platform and making changes in the first 100 days of his administration. Overall, McShera said this win was a huge victory for the party he supports. "It's a fantastic day to be a Democrat," he said.

Sports WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 5,2008 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Hill improves 'disappointing' play to find role on UF Marianne Lijewski / Alligator UF safety Will Hill tackles Kentucky receiver E.J. Adams in the second quarter of the Gators' 63-5 win against Kentucky in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium on Oct. 25. Hill finished with a team-high 11 tackles. E HE HAS EARNED ASPOT IN THE SAFETY ROTATION. By BRIAN STEELE Alligator Staff Writer bsteele@aIigator.org Will Hill probably never heard the word "disappointed" associated with his name before. When you score 28 touchdowns while also being one of the hardest hitting safeties in the country in your senior year of high school, "disappointed" doesn't come to mind. Until you come to a program with athletes who have those same type of stats and accolades, that is. When Dorian Munroe was lost for the season with a torn ACL in his right knee over the summer, it appeared Hill, who decided to play safety full time at UF, would be the favorite for the starting strong safety job next to Major Wright. A lack of sound practice habits and not understanding UF's defensive system showed otherwise. "We were all kind of -I hate to say disappointed -but we were at first," UF coach Urban Meyer said of Hill when he arrived in the fall. So' like many other Gators before him (think Reggie Nelson, Louis Murphy and eyen current freshman Jeff Demps), Hill had to make an impact on special teams before he would see any quarterbacks throwing his direction or running backs rumbling toward him. "The rite of passage for us for a young player is special teams," safeties coach Chuck Heater said. "(Hill) started Heater making all those tackles on kickoff, and then he was kind of turning the corner. That's validation for us when he's being-productive on special teams, and then you feel like he's ready to make that move (to defense)." It's official. The Gators have a three-safety rotation with Wright, Hill and Ahmad Black. "It's exactly like we thought (he would be)," Meyer said. Hill is not going to be taking a starting spot from Wright or Black anytime soon, but he will be getSEE HILL, PAGE 16 UF FOOTBALL Rickerson arrested, off team By BRIAN STEELE Alligator Staff Writer bsteele@alligator.org UF sophomore cornerback Jacques Rickerson was arrested early Tuesday morning on charges of domestic battery by strangulation and obstruction of justice, both felony charges, by the Gainesville Police Department. Coach Urban Meyer released a statement Tuesday releasing Rickerson from the program. "Jacques Rickerson is no longer part of our team -that is not what our program is about,"_ Meyer said. "My focus and our team's focus is with the players who are part of the program and preparing for the Vanderbilt game." The incident occurred at Lexington Crossing Apartments, and Rickerson was later booked at 7:51 a.m. When Rickerson was asked to leave the residence, he became upset and struck the victim on the side of her face, according to the arrest report. Rickerson then went on to use his hand to choke the victim, and when the victim called for help, Rickerson pushed her face deep into a mattress and covered her face with a pillow, according to the report. After Rickerson let go of the victim, he blocked her exit out of the room and prevented her from calling the police by holding her cell phone, the report stated. The victim sustained visible injuries to her arm, neck and upper chest, according to the report. The report said Rickerson and the victim had been dating for over a year. "Jacques Rickerson is no longer part of our team -that is not what our program is about." Urban Meyer UF football coach He was still in jail as of 11:30 p.m. Tuesday Rickerson is a backup cornerback and has played sparingly this year after coming in as a four-star cornerback, according to Scout.com. After Monday's practice, Meyer would not comment on Rickerson other than saying the situation was "disappointing." When asked if his absence would impact the depth of the secondary, Meyer said it will have "no impact at all." Junior linebacker Brandon Spikes said the team has not yet met to discuss Rickerson's incident. Please, don t do a playoff t's best if I just come out and say it. I love the BCS. There you have it, and before you lambast, let me explain. I was nothing more than a casual college football fan before I came to UF just more than four years ago. I'd watch the big games and catch the Hurricanes or Gators whenever I got a chance, but it wasn't "Must See TV" for me. Today, I won't allow myself to miss a game, and there are few thiings I enjoy more than debating all the different permutations we could end up with. Now, don't take this as me saying the BCS is the best way for a champion to be crowned. It's far from it, actually. I'm a huge fan of the NBA, and I stand by the notion that a seven-game series is the best way to learn who the best team in a league is. S u c h a thing is impossible in football, which leads everyone to. Karl Hyppolite say that colHy-Lite Reels lege footkhyppolite@asligatororg ball should switch to an eightteam, single-elimination playoff. As recently as a few years ago, I was a proponent of a system like that, but as time moves on I feel like it may be a little less satisfying than the BCS, which allows for endless debates and makes every week feel like the fate of the world lies in the balance. We would lose that if college football went to a playoff, and, I have to admit, I'd be a bit disapSEE KARL, PAGE 16 NBA: Chicago vs. Cleveland ESPN, 8 p.m. NBA: Denver vs. Golden State ESPN, 10:30 p.m. M 2005: No. 13 UF defeats Vanderbilt 49-42 in double overtime in the Gators' homecoming game.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 2008 N ALLIGATOR, 15 ___SEC Tourney starts with 'Bama UF freshman defender Jazmyne Avant juggles the ball in the second half of the Gators' 5-1 win against Tennessee on Sept. 28. By BOBBY CALLOVI Alligator Writer bcallovi@alligator.org For Jazmyne Avant, the Southeastern Conference Tournament isn't just a way to get an automatic bid in the NCAA Tournament. It's also a way to get redemption for poor performances in previous matches. The freshman defender was thrown right into the college soccer world since arriving on campus, starting every game this season -the only freshman on the Gators to do so. She helped silence any questions about No. 7 UF's inexperienced defense entering the season with her strong play, but there are still games she wishes she could play again. Today, the SEC All-Freshmen Team member will get her second chance at one of those games when No. 1 seed UF (16-2-1, 11-0 SEC) takes on No. 8 seed Alabama (9-8-2, 4-6-1) in the opening match of the SEC Tournament. "I didn't have one of my best games against Alabama, so I feel I have something to prove," Avant said. "That goes for a lot of people, maybe not against Alabama, but we have other reasons to play hard other than just wining." The Gators won the first meeting 6-1, but they need to forget about that and the other 10 wins in conference play because the seven other teams competing in the tournament are waiting for their chance for payback. With a 23-game winning streak -including going undefeated this season -against conference opponents, they can expect teams to be gunning for them a little harder to knock the Gators off. This has them feeling a little paranoid. "We feel like every one is out to get us, and a lot of teams have something against us that they didn't have before," Avant said. Other teams in the SEC need the automatic bid more than UF. The Gators' resume is already good enough to qualify them for the NCAA Tournament, one of the few SEC teams able to say that. Having a possible berth into the NCAA Tournament up for grabs should lift the energy levels of the rest of the conference. "Every team from here on out is going to bring it -because they know their NCAA is on the line, and this may be their last game," first-team, All-SEC midfielder Ashlee Elliott said. Seniors Ameera Abdullah and Megan Kerns were the other two Gators on the first team with junior Lauren Hyde getting second-team honors, wlich were announced on Tuesday. I didn't have one of my best games against Alabama, so I feel I have something to prove." Jazmyne Avant UF freshman deferiler UF coach and SEC Coach of the Year Becky Burleigh has emphasized to her team the importance of not taking a team lightly, coming in overconfident and preparing for one team at a time. A major concern is the tactical changes the Crimson Tide will make to produce a better result against the Gators. Burleigh said the changes made by an opposing team are the hard part about playing a team for the second time. While Burleigh has her worries about playing a team twice, Avant can't wait to get a second go at some in-conference rivals. "As a freshman, I didn't really feel like I had anything to play for because I never had any problems with any of the teams or rivalries," Avant said. "Now that I have played teams, my mentality has changed." UF WOMEN'S GOLF Gators, Jensen close out fall season with loss to Tulsa By EUGENIO TORRENS Alligator Writer At least there's a spring season. The UF women's golf team finished its fall season on a disappointing note, losing to 16th-seeded Tulsa 3-1-1 in the last round at the Match Play in Orlando on Tuesday. On a positive note, it was no surprise as the Gators were led by their freshmen -again. Freshman Evan Jensen swiped UF's sole victory from Tulsa's Shu-Yin Liu in thrilling fashion. Liu led for 14 consecutive holes before Jensen tied it up on the second-to-last hole. Jensen got the win on the last hole. At one point, Liu held a 4-hole lead against Jensen. "(Liu) made a few putts early on that put me down quick," Jensen said. Jensen said she buckled down and stopped worryfig about what her opponent was doing. Jensen, the Gators' best player this tournament, boasted a 2-1 record in her three matches. "Mentally tough," coach Jill BrilesHinton said when describing Jensen. "She won quite a few holes when she was down, and that shows mental toughness." The next best golfer was fellow freshman Andrea Watts. Watts halved her match -meaning her and her opponent finished the match tied. Watts and Tulsa's Woori Shin traded holes throughout the match before Watts gained the upper hand in the second-to-last hole. It was a fleeting lead, as Shin saved face for the tie. For her three rounds, Watts finished 1-1-1. "One of the best swings in golf," Briles-Hinton Je"se" said about Watts. Nicole Schachner, Brittany Nelson and Lauren Uzelatz didn't fare as well against their respective opponents. Schachner, who was filling in -for top golfer Jessica Yadloczky dropped her match 6 and 4. Nelson kept it a close affair but couldn't escape a 3 and 2 loss. Uzelatz had momentum in the early stages but squandered it and never got it back as she lost 4 and 3. Now the Gators will have until Feb. 9 before seeing the greens again, when they'll travel to Palos Verdes, Calif., for the Northrop Grumman tournament. Briles-Hinton said the team will focus on one thing this offseason. "We, without a doubt, have to work on our short game," Briles-Hinton said. "That was a lesson learned this week for these girls: 'My short game needs to be better than anybody's."' @0 De you to food drive. 1105 W.

16, ALLIGATOR 0 WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 5,2008 U'~ VOLLEYBALL Hampton finds assistant coaching job at P.K. Yonge By KYLE MAISTRI Alligator Writer kmaistri@alligator.org For Marcie Hampton, there are no more long practices with 13 other players who she has come to call "sisters." No more road trips to Fayetteville, Ark., or Starkville, Miss. No more launching miniature. volleyballs into the O'Connell Center stands during the blaked-out player introductions. Though her storied four-year career with UF came to an end after she suffered a ruptured left Achilles' tendon in the Gators' final regular season match against Long Beach State in 2007, Hampton isn't-done with volleyball in Gainesville. *Yhe former outside hitter has taken an assistant coaching job at P.K. Yonge High, where she and current UF standout Elyse Cusack once graced the same hardwood. "It's really cool being in the old gym that I used to play in," Hampton said. "The pictures of our state championship teams are up. It's neat to go back to where it all began." The step backward into her past was made, in part, because fate took away her ability to step forward into her future. Hampton had aspirations of going out on top, winning UF's first-ever national championship and then making seamless transition to a professional career overseas. But recovering from the injury has proven to be a long and taxing process she has yet to complete. In the meantime, Hampton's competitive nature -and need for a job -made high school coaching a perfect stop. UF coach Mary Wise frequently teased her during her playing days that she would become a coach because she loved the game too much. "It's a lot different," Hampton said of coaching and playing. "I've enjoyed coaching more than I thought I would, it's a lot more than sitting there telling the girls what to do." The girls she works with make the job fun for her, and it's allowed her to stay around the sport that was taken away from her, something she's only recently come to grips with. "I try to tell myself everything happens for a reason," Hampton said. "You put so much of your life, blood, sweat and tears into it, and you finally get to the point where you're playing well, and your team is Hampton play ig well, and it doesn't work out." Hampton and the Gators were robbed of one last postseason run, something her teammates never saw coming. "To have her go down was really hard for our team and for me," said Cusack, who first played with Hampton as an eighth grader. "You can look back and say maybe we could've gone farther." In the end, UF was unable to capture a national title before losing Hampton, Amber McCray, Angie McGinnis and Kisya Killingsworth to graduation. Some thought that nucleus of players had what it took to finally bring home that championship, but Hampton is optimistic the new group of Gators will be able to get it done. "It's just a matter of time," she said. "They have the talent, and they have the coaching." Cusack said that if the team is able to pull it off in her time at UF, the feat would be something for everyone to share. "It would be an honor for me, but it would mean so much to all the previous players, doing something that they worked so hard for but just couldn't get," she said. If they ever do hoist that elusive banner into the rafters, you can bet Hampton will have a front-row seat. HILL, from page 14 ting his fair share of snaps now in addition to his special teams work. Wright called Hill, who is seventh on the team with 28 tackles, "grown up." Hill's dreadlocks don't make him look like an old man, but his newfound maturity has been seen on the field. "At first he was playing a little timid, but now he's playing like the five-star he is," cornerback Joe Haden said. Playing like a five-star high school prospect is apparently just the start. "I feel that I can play better," Hill said aft; UF's 63-5 win against Kentucky, a game in which he had a team-leading 11 tackles. "Coming in with all the accolades, it didn't mean anything to me. I just knew I had to wait my turn, and when I got my turn, make the most of it." The Monday after the Kentucky win, Heater's wife even told him he needs to find a way to get the trio of Wright, Black and Hill all on the field at the same time. That usually doesn't happen with safeties, but Heater said they did it last year with Tony joiner. "He's come a long Football way," Heater said. "It took him a while to acclimate and learn how to go, and then about the time he was about to get going he strained his hamstring and that set him back. Now he's back in a situation where we're trying to find some ways to get him out there." With the way he's played recently, getting him out there would be a good idea. KARL, from page 14 pointed by it. Also, there is no guarantee a playoff would truly crown the best team in the country. College football is based entirely upon making as much money as possible for the NCAA and the college presidents. This means that in a pretend playoff, the winners of the six BCS conferences would receive automatic bids, and Notre Dame would have some loophole created so it could get into the championship. That leaves two atlarge bids available at the most. Using this season as an example, let's pretend Texas Tech, UF, Penn State, Southern Cal, Georgia Tech and West Virginia lock up their respective conferences. And let's also imagine Utah, by virtue of being an undefeated midmajor, and Texas receive the at-large bids. We still would have a screwy playoff with two teams (Georgia Tech and West Virginia) that have no business being in the tournament while great teams like Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Alabama would be left out in the cold. Any of those three teams would be good enough to win an eight-team playoff, but none would be given the opportunity. You might say the solution would be to just take the top eight teams in the BCS and ignore conferences altogether, but that's just unrealistic. I don't think there's any way college football will ever move to a playoff. There's too much money to be lost from bowl games, but even if they did, the only way they would consider it is if the six BCS conferences received automatic bids. With the possibility that a playoff could be nearly as unsatisfying as a bunch of dudes in front of a computer crunching numbers, why not simply enjoy the endless possibilities of the BCS? I definitely am. V I ~ ~ Former five-star recruit feels best is yet to come from him T
