LET THE TIDE ROLL IN


UF seals spot in SEC title game vs. 'Bama


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

NASHVILLE, Tenn. There
was no extravagant celebration
Saturday night.
Sure, UF's players sang with
the band, Tim Tebow did his usual
victory lap and the Gators were
smiling as they ran off the field at
Vanderbilt Stadium.
But an ignorant bystander
would have had no idea UF just
clinched a spot in the Southeastern
Conference Championship with its
42-14 blowout of Vanderbilt (5-4,
3-3 SEC).
The biggest on-field celebra-
tion, in fact, came from Shelley
Meyer, who Gator Chomped along
with fans.
Meet the 2008 Gators, a team
that says it's just beginning to
reach its goals.
No. 3 UF (8-1, 6-1 SEC) will
make its ninth appearance in the
SEC title game on Dec. 6 against
current-No. 1 Alabama. The Gators
are 6-2 in their previous games,
but both losses ('92 and '99) came
against the Crimson Tide.
"There was a little celebra-
tion, but we expected to win, and
we came out and got it done,"
said linebacker Brandon Spikes,
who led a UF defense that held


Vanderbilt to 93 first-half yards.
That was the lingering theme
Saturday night.
The path has just begun, and
since UF slipped up against
Mississippi on Sept. 27, it wants to


make sure it doesn't happen again
during the next few weeks.
The Gators' 28-point victory
margin Saturday night kept them
from being the second team in SEC
history to win five straight confer-


ence games by 30 or more points.
The only team to do it? UF in
1996.
Now, the talk in Gainesville
and elsewhere will be all about the
Gators and their attempt to get to a
second national title game in three
years.

UF quarterback Tim Tebow hugs coach Urban Meyer after throwing a 41-yard touchdown pass to David
Nelson in the Gators' 42-14 win against Vanderbilt on Saturday in Nashville, Tenn.


The road got a little easier
Saturday night when then-No. 3
Penn State lost 24-23 on a last-sec-
ond field goal at unranked Iowa.
The game finished just before
kickoff in Nashville, and the
Gators were well aware of the
Nittany Lions' gift.
UF, which was No. 5 in the BCS
rankings last week, is now up to
No. 4 with Penn State's loss.
Spikes said UP is playing the
best football in America and sees
fewer obstacles in the way of a
trip to Miami, site of the 2009 BCS
National Championship Game.
"I think we're in the driver's
seat," he said. "We just take care
of business week in and week out,
and we'll be OK."
UF coach Urban Meyer talked
to his team Sunday night about the
possible ramifications of the new-
est BCS standings.
"I learned this back at Utah,"
Meyer said. "They're going to
hear (the national talk), and in-
stead of Uncle Jim or someone like
that, they're going to hear exactly
what's going on with the BCS.
For us to just avoid that, I learned
that's not the right way to do it.
They're going to be talking about
it, so let's talk about it."
UF's ability to play complete
games is the key to its recent suc-
cess.
The Gators jumped on the

Fans play on stage during Rock Band Live show


* PANIC AT THE DISCO, DASHBOARD
CONFESSIONAL AMONG BANDS.

By DAVID CUMMING
Alligator Writer

Magic tricks and stripper poles were
promised to appear during a Dashboard
Confessional set on Saturday night.
"But one is just for after the show," laughed


lead singer Chris Carrabba during the band's
performance.
About 2,700 people filled the O'Connell
Center for MTV Rock Band Live, a four-hour
medley of pop-rock musical sets and wannabe
rockers.
Wearing matching black and white ties
and vests, The Cab worked the crowd as lead
singer Alex DeLeon swayed and skipped
aroundstage.
Although they were the least-known band


on tour, fans hummed lyrics from some of
their songs, such as "That '70s Song" and
"Bounce," even from outside the arena, where
things got a bit competitive.
On Concert-goers tested their
Camg ps karaoke and manual-dexterity
skills on three "Rock Band 2"
stages. Four high-scoring bands
got their kicks on the main stage after the sec-
ond and third musical acts.
Although some spent weeks preparing for


their chance to perform under the lights, oth-
ers played the game on a whim.
"We actually just got the game the day
before, and none of us had really played it,"
said Jason Bell, a graduate student who went
onstage with his band, Claws and Fangs. "But
we're all former musicians so we picked it up
pretty quickly."

Transplant patient dies in crash along with wife, pilot


By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Writer

Investigators are looking into the cause
of a plane crash that killed three Key West
residents east of the Gainesville Regional
Airport early Friday morning.
The plane was carrying Gordon Taylor,
52, who was going to Shands at UF to re-
ceive a kidney transplant, said Robert Valle,
the owner of the plane and operations di-
rector of Air Key West.
The others in the plane were Taylor's
wife, Barbara Taylor, 51, and pilot
Andrew Ricciuti, 43, said Summer Hallett,
spokeswoman for the Gainesville Police
Department.
The Taylors had two daughters, Hallett
said. Their daughter Kyle Taylor is a UF stu-
dent, said Janine Sikes, UF spokeswoman.
Ricciuti, who began flying planes in the
U.S. Navy, had been a pilot for more than 20
years. He had been with Air Key West for
about three or four years, Hallett said.
Valle said Taylor received a call late
Thursday night from Shands saying there
was donor kidney available for him, but
he needed to get there within eight hours

LOCAL


to receive it.
The two-engine Partenavia P.68 plane
took off from Key West at 12:30 a.m. Friday,
Valle said.
Because the air traffic control tower in
Gainesville was closed, air traffic control
in Jacksonville cleared the plane to land
at the Gainesville Regional Airport at 2:45
a.m., said Federal Aviation Administration
spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen.
Bergen said when air traffic
Local control did not hear back from
News the plane, it called Gainesville
officials at 5:15 a.m.
Five local agencies, the
FAA and the National Transport Safety
Board responded- to-the-6800-block-of-
Northeast 39th Avenue to search for any
survivors of the crash, Bergen said.
"The plane crashed just short of the
runway, killing all three passengers and
destroying the plane," she said.
Robert Gretz, the senior air safety inves-
tigator of the National Transportation Safety
Board, said the board would investigate the
pilot, the plane and the environment over
the next six months to a year before it could
issue a probable cause for the crash.

Local residents discuss reasons for living in Gainesville


By LAUREN IRIZARRY
Alligator Contributing Writer


Job opportunities have brought
several residents to Gainesville, but
unique offerings like the world's
second-largest butterfly collection
are what made them stay.
About 15 locals discussed what
they like about Gainesville and


what keeps them here at a book
forum Sunday afternoon at the
Alachua County Headquarters
Library.
Led by City Commissioner
Jeanna Mastrodicasa, the discus-
sion was inspired by the book,
"Who's Your City?" by Richard
Florida. The book argues that one
of the most important decisions
people will make is where they will


live.
Mastrodicasa
said a discus-
sion of what
makes people
like Gainesville is
important to how
the city markets
Masterodicasa itself in the fu-
ture.
"We're going to have to take a


step back and look at what we're
-doing in the local economy," she
said.
In the book, Florida focuses on
the importance of creative econo-
mies, which he wrote are both in-
novative and professional.
Attendees agreed that UF,
Gainesville's growing health care
facilities, the presence of small
businesses and a steady arts and

Bikers parade raises $101K for Red Cross, veterans


By KATHRYN WATSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

University Avenue's usual
Sunday-afternoon calm was dis-
turbed by the roar of engines as
1,770 riders and passengers sped by
on motorcycles, attempting to break
the Guiness World Record for the
largest parade of motorcycles at the
eighth annual Bikers on Parade for
the USA event. .
The 23-mile charity parade
raised more than $101,000 to benefit
the North Central Florida chapter of
the American Red Cross and local
veteran-related causes, said parade
founder Bonnie Cameron.
It took parade participants 26
minutes to cross the start line at
Santa Fe College before winding
through Gainesville streets for
more than an hour, shutting down
University Avenue.
The riders were filmed as they
crossed the finish line under a giant
American flag held aloft by crane.
Although the video will be submit-
ted to the Guinness World Records
agency, the potential record was
rarely mentioned.
Focus was on support for veter-
ans and public safety officers.
"We have a lot of events at this
college. There is none that gives


us more pride than this," SFC
President Jackson Sasser said dur-
ing the parade's opening ceremony,
which was attended by more than
1,000 people.
As Toby Keith's "American
Soldier" blasted during the ceremo-
ny, hundreds of participants crowd-
ed the stage to shake the hands of
the two grand marshals, Purple
Heart recipients Sgt. Catlin Mixson
and Sgt. 1st Class John Borders.
"I never thought I would be able
to get off that stage," said Mixson,
"We have a lot of events at
this college. There is none
that gives us more pride
than this."
Jackson Sasser
SFC President

who is from Williston.
Ed Wedge, who served eight
years in the Air Force, rode in the
parade wearing a full stormtrooper
outfit. Wedge said his white and
black motorcycle was "begging for
a 'Star Wars' costume."
Wedge said he'll be back next
year to continue to support the vet-
erans, including his son, Sgt. Philip
Wedge, who is in Iraq serving his
second tour.

Alachua County Jail officials push inmate GED courses


By CURT DEVINE
Alligator Contributing Writer

Officials at the Alachua County Jail are
hoping a little education could go a long way
in encouraging inmates to pursue degrees.
Since the beginning of the year, 41 of
the jail's inmates have passed the General
Education Development test, almost double
the 22 inmates who passed in 2007, according
to an Alachua County Sheriff's Department
news release. In 2006, 15 inmates passed.
Officials believe the increase in passing
rates is motivating more inmates to enroll in
GED preparation courses.
Eugene Morris, the bureau chief of inmate


programs and services, said his department
has stressed the importance of education
since he took his position in January.
Morris said he tells all inmates that educa-
tion can decrease their chances of being incar-
cerated again.
"It's a golden opportunity and second
chance," he said. "I think our inmates are
starting to see how much a little education
can improve their lives."
All inmates who test below a ninth-grade
level in reading, writing or math are eli-
gible to attend GED classes and take the test
through a partnership between the jail and
the Alachua County School Board, the news
release stated.
In 2008, inmates tested at an average of a


fourth-grade level.
Leanne Lawrence, a GED instructor at the
jail, said with more inmates earning GEDs
than the previous two years combined, her
students are more motivated and eager to
learn. Many of the inmates' personal discus-
sions have shifted from money and relation-
ships to education and grades,
Local she said.
News "Their excitement is conta-
gious," Lawrence said. "Many
inmates are fighting to get into
my class to study fractions or reading com-
prehension."
Lawrence said the she tries to teach the
most important information quickly because
some of her students are incarcerated only 40


to 60 days.
She structures the course to focus on the
most common types of test questions, such as
percentages and basic reading skills, she said.
Lawrence recalled one inmate nicknamed
Willy who enrolled in her course at a third-
grade math level. After a few weeks of study-
ing, he scored a 550 on the GED math section.
A410 out of 800 is required to pass.
He was so thrilled that he ran into her
classroom, picked her up and tried to spin her
around, she said.
"The test has become more of a privilege
and challenge around the jail," Lawrence
said.
"Everyone wants to see if they've got what
it takes to pass."

E-cards urge sexual partners to get tested for STDs


* CARDS CAN BE SENT
ANONYMOUSLY.

By DEANA CASIMANO
Alligator Contributing Writer

People send e-cards for birth-
days, holidays or to express a
simple "thinking of you."
Now, an increasing number of
people are sending virtual cards
to inform past sexual partners
they may have a sexually trans-
mitted disease.
Although an e-card may not
be the best way to break such sen-
sitive news, the goal of the Web
site inSpot.org is to get people
tested and treated, said Migling
Cuervo, an epidemiologist at the


Florida Department of Health
Bureau of Sexually Transmitted
Diseases.
The site's Florida section was
launched in May 2007.
The site, developed by the
nonprofit company Internet
Sexuality Information Services,
includes customized Web sites
for nine U.S. cities, 10 states and
three international sites.
The Florida Department of
Health Bureau of STDs maintains
the content on the inSpot Florida
site.
"Any additional tool that we
can use to power individuals in
Florida is a wonderful thing,"
said Sherese Bleechington,
statewide health educator at the


Florida.Department of Health.
Each city, state and interna-
tional Web site offers a choice of
six different e-cards. The sender
chooses the STD to which they
may have exposed their partner
and can include a personal mes-
sage before sending it anony-
mously or with their e-mail
address.
The recipient of the card is
then directed to a page with dis-
ease-specific information.
Samantha Evans, a GatorWell
Health Promotion specialist,
said the Web site is an effective
method for reaching partners
who might otherwise be unreach-
able and for those who want to
remain anonymous.


According to a report in
the Public Library of Science
Medicine journal, more than
30,000 people have sent more
than 49,500 e-cards through
inSpot since its launch in 2004.
"Any additional tool that we
can use to power individu-
als in Florida is a wonder-
ful thing."
Sherese Bleechington
Health educator at the

Evans said the site does have
its share of problems.
For example, some of the cards
make a joke out of a serious situa-


tion, such as one card that reads,
"I got screwed while screwing,
you might have too. Get checked
for STDs if you haven't recently."
Evans said students don't take
advantage of the STD testing and
treatment services offered by
UF's student health center.
The Student Health Care
Center performed about 520
HIV tests and 1,000 chlamydia
tests between Jan. 1 and June 30.
Evans says that number is low
when compared to the 50,000 or
so students on campus.
While the traditional method
of telling a sexual partner is in
person, Evans said the bottom
line is that people should be noti-
fied and go for testing.


Annual art festival


draws 100,000

By CURT DEVINE
Alligator Contributing Writer

Artists, vendors and dancing green elves filled
Gainesville's downtown streets Saturday and Sunday.
With a few thousand more than last year's 100,000 at-
tendees, the 27th annual Downtown Festival & Art Show
provided art enthusiasts with a wide selection of paint-
ings, crafts and photography..
Event coordinator Linda Piper said many artists and
vendors sold out of products before the festival ended.
Ar d The.festival's 250 artists competed for
Gainesvill $14,000 in prizes, funded by artist regis-
tration fees.
Bill and Jon Slade of Jacksonville
won the $2,000 best-in-show award for their solid-glass
sculptures.
The two artists, who are father and son, have partici-
pated in the festival for almost 25 years, but it was their
first time winning the award.
Jason Anderson, a ceramics artist from Birmingham,
Ala., said shows like the Gainesville festival are nice be-
cause of the college-town atmosphere, but competition
among artists is intense.
"I've been competing with some of these guys for
years," Anderson said. "We're like a group of gypsies
traveling the country together."

Editorial


You've Got Mail

E-cards lame alternative

to confrontation
You've got to love the cowardice that comes with
increased technology. We know we do.
Humans invented the bow and arrow so they
could hunt and fight from a safe distance, rather than risk
their lives at point-blank range.
Later, a telephone call became a less-than-suitable sub-
stitute for a face-to-face breakup. Text messaging and e-
mails have served to further reduce the testicular fortitude
of would-be relationship enders.
In keeping with this yellow-bellied tradition, inSpot.org
has developed an e-card system that lets you inform sex-
ual partners that you might have given them something
itchy and swollen.
If we received an e-card that said, "I got screwed while
screwing, you might have too get checked for STDs if
you haven't recently," our heads would probably explode
out of pure fury.
It would be bad enough to get the news in person that
our downstairs had gotten mixed up, but to send an e-card
is the most spineless method we've ever heard of. Have
some pride, and be creative if you're going to wimp out.
Send us a singing telegram to explain the raspberry
patch on our undercarriages at least we'd have some-
one to punch in the face.
We understand it's better to keep people informed by
any means necessary, but while these e-cards may help
curb the spread of sexually transmitted diseases, we think
the increase in random acts of violence would cancel out
the e-cards' positive impact.


Comeback Kid


R member "Homeward
Bound: The Incredible
oumey"? The movie
told the tale of two dogs and
a cat who got separated from
their owners and were forced
to trek through the wilderness
to get back home. They fought
porcupines, fat animal control
employees and worst of
all random holes in-the
ground. In true family movie
fashion, the trio overcame all
the obstacles to make it back
to their family.
It's time to forget about the
adventures of Chance, Sassy
and Shadow because a dog
named Max has taken their
fictional tale and stomped it
to irrelevance with his tiny
Maltese paws.
Max, who was reported
stolen by a family in Brandon
several months ago, recently
showed up in Chicago.
The dog was identified us-
ing an implanted microchip,
picked up by a Maltese rescue
group based in Racine, Wis.,


and flown back to Florida
Saturday.
If this isn't a feel-good
story, we don't know what
is. Everyone likes dogs; how
could you not root for this
one?
We don't know if we
could survive on our own
in Chicago for months. It
boggles our minds that a dog
weighing less than 10 pounds
could make it all the way to
the Windy City, much less
survive and get back home.
We doubt a Maltese's abil-
ity to rely on its hunting skills
- they're pocket-sized. All we
can guess is Max either found
the most generous Italian
restaurant in Chicago and
lived off leftover spaghetti a la
"Lady and the Tramp," or he
developed a taste for beetles.
We're glad to see a story
about a lost dog that isn't
just a cover-up for your dad
backing the Mazda over little
Sparky.
Congratulations, Max.

Part-time pundits ruin election season


F finally, they are gone.
After two years of hearing them babble end-
lessly into my ear about how Sen. Barack Obama
is a Muslim, Sen. Hillary Clinton is a socialist and Rudy
Giuliani used the NYPD as his own personal paramilitary,
the weekend warriors of the political scene have begun to
crawl back under their respective rocks.
They'll have to wait another four years to pounce.
Hailing from all comers of UF, these engineering, bio-
chemistry and sometimes even political science majors
pop out of the woodwork every two to four years to drop
their preferred political knowledge on our feeble minds.
Did you know Obama is actually part. Arab? You do
now.
Ever wonder if actor Fred Thompson is actually senile?
A five-minute conversation with one of these aspiring po-
liticos would definitely clear it up for you.
I am certainly not saying people are in the wrong for
sharing their uniquely deep thoughts; everyone is entitled
to an opinion.
To the contrary, I think individuals should share as they
wish, regardless of whether they are a political science ma-
jor or are permanently interested in politics. Like a game
show or a horse race, the presidential race and sometimes
even congressional races can be entertaining.
The more attention people pay to political campaigns,
the more educated on the issues and candidates they will
become.
I can't stand the people who assault you verbally if
you can't name all of Rep. Dennis Kucinich's children, or
if you're left speechless when asked to name Rep. Duncan
Hunter's birthplace (yes, he did run for president this
year). These weekend warriors make the political process
a pain for the rest of us.
By all means, share your thoughts, feelings and opin-
ions I would be glad to give your point of view a lis-
ten.


Unfortunately for all the faux-
pundits, having an opinion does
not make you an expert.
SToo many times, conversa-
tions with one of these tempo-
rary political geniuses leave me
questioning the intellect of the
Kyle Robisch average American voter.
letters@a)ligator.org Simply pulling obscure facts
regarding the presidential races
out of a hat doesn't qualify you
to be president or to tell me how I should feel about the
race.
About two weeks before Election Day, I was sitting in
the Hub reading for my public health engineering class
and eating my lunch when an aspiring neoconservative
noticed the Gators for Obama pin on my backpack.
Naturally, he couldn't resist the opportunity to bless
me with his unparalleled understanding of the political
universe.
"Did you know Obama supports Iran's desire to nuke
Israel?" he asked me.
I was caught off guard and left speechless. He walked
away reminding me to "do my research" before backing a
particular candidate.
Clearly, this isn't true even if one believes Obama
is soft with regard to foreign policy, very few believe he
wants Iran to destroy Israel.
Somehow, though, this newfound political science
buff had the gall to walk up to me and inform me of my
candidate's political beliefs.
People like this make life hell for the rest of us by refus-
ing to allow us to enjoy our beliefs.
If you want to share your thoughts, then feel free.
Don't tell me I'm wrong because we disagree.

more. His column appears on Mondays.

Letters to the Editor
The Fest not that different from frat
party
As someone who gets mislabeled a
scene kid regularly, I've come to under-
stand the plight of the common hipster.
The skinny jeans, flannel shirts, fixy bikes
and messenger bags create a supple atmo-
sphere for ridicule.
On more than one occasion, I have been
verbally intimidated by SUVs full of pastel
shirts, usually ending with a quick heck-
ling and acceleration through a late yellow
light. Like I said, I understand the plight of
the common hipster.
We non-pastel-shirt-wearing students
feel similarly about the atmosphere and
attitude of fraternities.
Although outnumbered, the hipsters
set aside one weekend a year (when all the
pastel shirts are in Jacksonville) to celebrate
their interesting style of music and art.
Why is it that members of a subculture
so entrenched in their disgust at the mod-
em fraternity feel obligated during their
time of glory to act in a way so consistent
with their enemies?


As an observer of The Fest, I've wit-
nessed fight after fight, loud scream after
drunken loud scream, stumbling upon
stumbling, bad screaming music after
more bad screaming music until the early
hours of the morning for three long, ardu-
ous days.
From my vantage point, The. Fest ap-
pears more like a prolonged fraternity
formal with bad body odor and less cam-
ouflage than a celebration of a legitimate,
progressive subculture.
Shame on you, hipsters, for once again
falling to the vices of your fraternal nem-
eses.

Palin represents Republican downfall
I wanted to commend Jake Miller's col-
umn in Friday's Alligator.
Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin represents ev-
erything I stand against both as a woman


and as a citizen of this country.
Her views are irrelevant, and as this
nation progresses, she will find that her
narrow-mindedness and divisive remarks
only work on a diminishing sliver of our
population.
Palin has made it clear what she feels
the "real" America is, but the real America
is a mosaic of cultures, religions and ide-
ologies.
On Tuesday, that mosaic voted for an in-
dividual it feel represents them and closed
the door on nonsensical fear-mongering.
If Republicans believe the reasons they
lost the presidency, as well as numerous
House and Senate seats, is because of the
economy and Bush, they have learned very
little from this experience and will likely
nominate Palin in 2012.
I am not a particularly liberal person,
but I feel strongly that if we ever see or
-hear Palin again, it will be too soon.

Opposing team's fans deserve respect
Shame on you, University Athletic
Association staff. Herding Rollins College's
fans around from section to section like
cattle during the men's basketball game
Thursday night was disgraceful.
Would you want Gators fans to be treat-
ed that way at other teams' arenas?
I can understand not letting the Rollins
fans stand in an aisle, but chasing them
around a half-empty arena was uncalled
for. It was an exhibition game, for crying
out loud, and one we knew we would
win.
So what if their fans want to stand and
cheer in the nosebleed Section 3? Our fans
are allowed to stand and cheer, and we en-
courage rowdiness, yet part of the Rollins
group was escorted out by University
Police. They weren't in anyone's way and
did not need to be babysat by six O'Connell
Center staff members and three cops.
Stop your power trip and let the teams
play and the fans cheer.

Election celebration shows enthusiasm for change, Obama


As an American, the proud-
est moment of my life
came on Tuesday night.
No, it wasn't the second I found
out Sen. Barack Obama had been
elected president.
It wasn't even during his accep-
tance speech, when his eloquence
and humility left me absolutely
speechless. It was afterward, with-
out CNN, the snacks or the booze.
After election night concluded,
my friends and I headed back to my
apartment. As we got out of my car,
we heard a growing roar from a few


blocks away.
At the comer of University
Avenue and 17th Street stood
Obama supporters waving and
shouting in elation as cars drove by.
The honking, yelling and en-
ergetic frenzy warmed the cool
November night. It was a feeling
that I had never experienced, and it
wasn't because the candidate I had
voted for won.
I joined them, running back and
forth across the street, jumping de-
liriously and screaming louder than
I ever had at a football game.


Andrea When
Williamson I stopped
Speaking Out to catch
my breath,
I looked
around. I saw black, white, Asian,
Latino, blue eyes and brown eyes.
We were all there, together, hug-
ging each other, shouting together
and running side by side in the
crosswalks.
We all knew that if Obama won,
Tuesday night would be special. We
will tell his story to our children and
grandchildren. We will immortalize


his moment in our memories and
history books. At least on an ab-
stract, intellectual level, his triumph
would mark this election in a way
that no other has.
Maybe my pessimism about
America's narrow-mindedness had
blinded me from the compassion we
are all capable of showing. Maybe
I had been too worried about him
losing or too saturated in his mes-
sage of hope and change that I had
forgotten what he was fighting for.
Above all, I didn't think that
a small group of people waving


Obama signs and running in the
crosswalks could make me feel so
hopeful.
SThe celebration on the street
epitomized what Obama's win sig-
nified. We can overcome our differ-
ences. We can look past the racism
that plagues our history. We can
unite. Yes we can. And on Tuesday
night, we did.
To all of you who were there,
thank you. I have never been
prouder.

UF FOOTBALL

Tebow continues to find stride as season progresses

By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Staff Writer
edrexler@alligator.org

NASHVILLE, Term. The Gators had such a dominat-
ing night on offense that coach Urban Meyer decided to take
quarterback Tim Tebow out of the game before the third quar- ..... ....-.
ter was complete.
Backup quarterback John Brantley finished off No. 3 UF's
42-1@ victory Saturday night, but Tebow had a productive
evening before being replaced.
Tebow had not been replaced that early since UF's season-
opening contest against Hawaii.
"Tim Tebow played tremendous in the first half," Meyer
said. B0
The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner passed for three touch-
downs and ran for two more in the first half, including a-
career-long touchdown run of 26 yards on the Gators' third
drive.
"Tim Tebow played tremendous in the first half." i
Urban Meyer
UF football coach"


When he came out of the game, Tebow had 171 yards
through the air on 12-of-17 passing and 88 yards on the
ground on just 11 carries.
"We came out, and we knew some of those option plays
(I would) probably get some keeps," Tebow said. "I got 'em,
and I tried to make the most of 'em."
His hard-nosed running caught his coach's eye.
"He was very aggressive tonight," Meyer said. "A couple
of them he just dropped his pads and went. Those weren't
designed runs."
He also had a great pocket presence against the

UF quarterback Tim Tebow rushes for a touchdown in the first quarter of the Gators' 42-14 win against Vanderbilt on
Saturday in Nashville, Tenn.


Simply put, UF is best in country


NASHVILLE, Tenn. -
Faster than a speeding bullet.
That's how fast the Gators are
storming to Atlanta.
Colder than a 38-degree night in
Nashville. That's how cold and cutthroat
the Gators have been in their past five
wins.
Stuck between a rock and a hard
place. That's where opponents have
found themselves when they face the
Gators' rare combination of speed and
toughness.
No, Vanderbilt didn't stand a chance
in Saturday night's 42-14 loss. They
rolled out of bed, put on their uniforms
and stormed the field only to realize they
were playing a road game in their own
stadium.
Maybe it was the knowledge that their


Commodores
didn't stand
a chance. Or
maybe it was
the knowledge
-that Kevin
Karl Hyppolite Costner and
Hy-Lite Reels Modem West
khyppolite@alligator.org were in town
for one night
only. Whatever
the cause, Saturday night's game was a
road game for UF in name only.
UF doesn't play road games anymore.
Each game seems to be a traveling show
that's a cross between a pep rally and a
party as the Gators make their way to the
raves that will take place later in Atlanta
and Miami.

Dunlap blocks two punts


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

NASHVILLE, Term. It was a block
party again.
No. 3 UF found more ways to
block punts in Saturday's 42-14 rout
of Vanderbilt, getting their hands
on two of Brett Upson's kicks.
It was UF's fifth and sixth blocked punts of
the season.
"(Coach Urban Meyer) knew everything
they were going to do," said defensive end
Carlos Dunlap, who had the two blocks.
"And he had us prepare for everything
they were going to do."
After watching the Commodores do a
similar punt formation against them last
year, it wasn't surprising from the Gators'
point of view.
"We had a good feeling they'd do the
rugby kick," Meyer said. "It's all person-
nel. It's the best (punt block) group I've
ever had."


VANDY GETS PENALIZED: In a game that
finished with 16 penalties for 150 yards, the
Commodores were the ones that were hurt
the most. They were penalized nine times
for 80 yards.
"It was too hard to make first downs
after that deficit,"
Vanderbilt coach
Bobby Johnson said.
"We were digging
ourselves even deeper
with those penalties."
Johnson credited sev-
nlap eral of the penalties to
Dunlap his younger players.
"Wejusthadcrazypenaltieshurtingour-
selves," quarterback Chris Nickson said.
INJURY UPDATES: Linebacker A.J. Jones
limped off the field on Saturday, but
Meyer said Jones is "fine." The status of
guard Carl Johnson is still up in the air.
"Carl might have a little meniscus,"
Meyer said.

UF DEFENSE

Black helps lead turnaround for Gators secondary


By MIKE McCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alligator.org

NASHVILLE, Tenn. No. 3 UF
furthered its impressive run with
Saturday night's 42-14 win against
Vanderbilt, giving it 38 points or
more in the last five contests.
But the Gators' high-scoring
ways shouldn't come as a surprise.
The big plays from Tim Tebow
& Co. were always there, but solid
defense is UF's new trick.
Ever since allowing 31 points
to Mississippi in a September loss,
the Gators (8-1, 6-1 Southeastern
Conference) have held their oppo-
nents to an average of 11.4 points per
game, a resurgence best exemplified
by the secondary and, more specifi-
cally, strong safety Ahmad Black.
In a year, Black has gone from
coach Urban Meyer's "recruiting
mistake" list to the forefront of the
Gators' success as the team's unlike-
ly leader for momentum-shifters.
Black tallied his team-high fifth
interception of the season against
Vanderbilt when he made a diving
catch off a deflected pass to set up
the Gators' third touchdown of the
first quarter.
Those are the big plays UF is get-
ting used to from the sophomore,
who has returned two picks for
touchdowns this season.
"He's like a cat. If you throw him,
he's always going to land in football


position," Meyer said. "Our guys
make fun of him for it, but it's true.
He's always in football position,
and that's why he's such an excel-
lent tackler. He's too small and too
slow, but he's a very heady player,
and he's always in the right position.
That's how he gets away with it."
The rest of the defense is follow-
ing Black's example, as the Gators
have 14 interceptions, already more
than the 11 last year's squad tallied
all season.
And the secondary isn't just
turning errant passes into turnovers.
It's limiting big plays, making solid
tackles and even supporting the run
defense.
Black, free safety Major Wright

among the team's leaders in tackles,
and Wright and Haden had six each
against the Commodores, while the
unit held Vanderbilt to just 114 pass-
ing yards.
Just as those three and freshman
corer Janoris Jenkins were hitting
their strides, another playmaker
emerged, albeit a little later than
expected.
Freshman Will Hill, thought by
many to be a potential starter after
Dorian Munroe went down with
an ACL tear in the preseason, has
turned in his best performances
recently after becoming a special
teams star earlier in the year.
Hill led the Gators in tackles
against Kentucky (11), managed


five against Georgia last week and
added five more Saturday, and he
played a key role in Black's early in-
terception. Hill blitzed and plowed
through Vanderbilt quarterback

ball go, pressuring him into throw-
ing toward a covered receiver.
Although Hill hasn't broken into
the starting lineup at safety, Meyer


is finding ways to keep him on the
field by playing him at nickel back.
"He played great, and he's going
to be a great player if he keeps work-
ing at it," Meyer said.

And you know no one parties like
the folks in Atlanta and Miami.
After the past five games, which
have looked more like matchups be-
tween the Harlem Globetrotters and
the Washington Generals, I'm ready
to say the Gators are the best team in
the country.
No team can match UF's combi-
nation of flash (Percy Harvin, Chris
Rainey and Jeff Demps), toughness
(Brandon Spikes) and swagger (the
whole team).
They've made every play of the
game worth watching.
I'm used to ignoring punts, but
you can't with Brandon James return-
ing them for touchdowns or Demps
racing pa t everyone and blocking
the kick.
It's not that the Gators are blowing
teams out. College football teams have
been running up the score for decades.
It's the way it's being done.
UF is outplaying opponents in ev-
ery phase of the game.
What's a team to do if you can't
stop the other guys from scoring, can't


unwarranted. After starting the
season slow, Tebow has hit his
stride in the last few gines.
Tebow had five total touchdowns
against Georgia last weekend and
picked up four the previous week
against Kentucky.
His career high of seven total
touchdowns five rushing and two
passing came last season against
South Carolina in Columbia.


score yourself and can't even get a
punt away to at least make the Gators
break a sweat on their way to the end
zone?
The answer is not much. I'm at the
point where I think only Texas Tech
and Texas can possibly take down UF.
Their offenses have the speed to
match the Gators' defensive athleti-
cism, and they're talented enough de-
fensively to keep the Gators from scor-
ing every time they have the ball.
Thankfully, Penn State got out of
everyone's way and lost to Iowa so we
could have a proper national champi-
onship game rather than the type of
one-sided thrashing we've seen the
past two seasons.
And as Urban Meyer stood with his
arm around his wife, Shelley, with his
players reveling in the fact that they
had taken over Nashville, he smiled as
the band played the fight song.
It was a smile filled with con-
fidence. A confidence of what has
come (a berth in the Southeastern
Conference championship game) and
what could be (a second national
championship in three years).
January 8, 2009.
That's the day all of that ceuld
come true.

D '*R*c MONDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2008 UF 42 VANDERBILT 14 LET THE TIDE ROLL UF seals spot in SEC title game vs. 'Bama By PHIL KEGLER Alligator Staff Writer pkegler@atigator.org NASHVILLE, Tenn. -There was no extravagant celebration Saturday night. Sure, UF's players sang with the band, Tim Tebow did his usual victory lap and the Gators were smiling as they ran off the field at Vanderbilt Stadium. But an ignorant bystander would have had no idea UF just clinched a spot in the Southeastern Conference Championship with its 42-14 blowout of Vanderbilt (5-4, 3-3 SEC). The biggest on-field celebration, in fact, came from Shelley Meyer, who Gator Chomped along with fans. Meet the 2008 Gators, a team that says it's just beginning to reach its goals. No. 3 UF (8-1, 6-1 SEC) will make its ninth appearance in the SEC title game on Dec. 6 against current-No. 1 Alabama. The Gators are 6-2 in their previous games, but both losses ('92 and '99) came against the Crimson Tide. "There was a little celebration, but we expected to win, and we came out and got it done," said linebacker Brandon Spikes, who led a UF defense that held Vanderbilt to 93 first-half yards. That was the lingering theme* Saturday night. The path has just begun, and since UF slipped up against Mississippi on Sept. 27, it wants to make sure it doesn't happen again during the next few weeks. The Gators' 28-point victory margin Saturday night kept them from being the second team in SEC history to win five straight conference games by 30 or more points. The only team to do it? UP in 1996. Now, the talk in Gainesville and elsewhere will be all about the Gators and their attempt to get to a second national title game in three years. Andrew Stantill / Alligator Staftf UF quarterback Tim Tebow hugs coach Urban Meyer after throwing a 41-yard touchdown pass to David Nelson in the Gators' 42-14 win against Vanderbilt on Saturday in Nashville, Tenn. I N The road got a little easier Saturday night when then-No. 3 Penn State lost 24-23 on a last-second field goal at unranked Iowa. The game finished just before kickoff in Nashville, and the Gators were well aware of the Nittany Lions' gift. UF, which was No. 5 in the BCS rankings last week, is now up to No. 4 with Penn State's loss. Spikes said UF is playing the best football in America and sees fewer obstacles in the way of a trip to Miami, site of the 2009 BCS National Championship Game. "I think we're in the driver's seat," he said. "We just take care of business week in and week out, and we'll be OK." UF coach Urban Meyer talked to his team Sunday night about the possible ramifications of the newest BCS standings. "I learned this back at Utah," Meyer said. "They're going to hear (the national talk), and instead of Uncle Jim or someone like that, they're going to hear exactly what's going on with the BCS. For us to just avoid that, I learned that's not the right way to do it. They're going to be talking about it, so let's talk about it." UF's ability to play complete games is the key to its recent success.

By DAVID CUMMING Alligator Writer Magic tricks and stripper poles were promised to appear during a Dashboard Confessional set on Saturday night. "But one is just for after the show," laughed lead singer Chris Carrabba during the band's performance. About 2,700 people filled the O'Connell Center for MTV Rock Band Live, a four-hour medley of pop-rock musical sets and wannabe rockers. Wearing matching black and white ties and vests, The Cab worked the crowd as lead singer Alex DeLeon swayed and skipped around stage. Although they were the least-known band on tour, fans hummed lyrics from some of their songs, such as "That '70s Song" and "Bounce," even from outside the arena, where things got a bit competitive. On Concert-goers tested their W karaoke and manual-dexterity skills on three "Rock Band 2" stages. Four high-scoring bands got their kicks on the main stage after the second and third musical acts. Although some spent weeks preparing for their chance to perform tinder the lights, others played the game on a whim. "We actually just got the game the day before, and none of us had really played it," said Jason Bell, a graduate student who went onstage with his band, Claws and Fangs.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 3 Transplant patient dies in crash along with wife, pilot By KATIE EMMETS Alligator Writer Investigators are looking into the cause of a plane crash that killed three Key West residents east of the Gainesville Regional Airport early Friday morning. The plane was carrying Gordon Taylor, 52, who was going to Shands at UF to receive a kidney transplant, said Robert Valle, the owner of the plane and operations director of Air Key West. The others in the plane were Taylor's wife, Barbara Taylor, 51, and pilot Andrew Ricciuti, 43, said Summer Hallett, spokeswoman for the Gainesville Police Department. The Taylors had two daughters, Hallett said. Their daughter Kyle Taylor is a UF student, said Janine Sikes, UF spokeswoman. Ricciuti, who began flying planes in the U.S. Navy, had been a pilot for more than 20 years. He had been with Air Key West for about three or four years, Hallett said. Valle said Taylor received a call late Thursday night from Shands saying there was donor kidney available for him, but he needed to get there within eight hours LOCAL to receive it. The two-engine Partenavia P.68 plane took off from Key West at 12:30 a.m. Friday, Valle said. Because the air traffic control tower in Gainesville was closed, air traffic control in Jacksonville cleared the plane to land at the Gainesville Regional Airport at 2:45 a.m., said Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen. Bergen said when air traffic Local control did not hear back from News the plane, it called Gainesville officials at 5:15 a.m. Five local agencies, the FAA and the National Transport Safety Board responded to the 6800 block of Northeast 39th Avenue to search for any survivors of the crash, Bergen said. "The plane crashed just short of the runway, killing all three passengers and destroying the plane," she said. Robert Gretz, the senior air safety investigator of the National Transportation Safety Board, said the board would investigate the pilot, the plane and the environment over the next six months to a year before it could issue a probable cause for the crash.

4, ALLIGATOR E MONDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2008 LOCAL Bikers parade raises $101K for Red Cross, veterans By KATHRYN WATSON Alligator Contributing Writer University Avenue's usual Sunday-afternoon calm was disturbed by the roar of engines as 1,770 riders and passengers sped by on motorcycles, attempting to break the Guiness World Record for the largest parade of motorcycles at the eighth annual Bikers on Parade for the USA event. The 23-mile charity parade raised more than $101,000 to benefit the North Central Florida chapter of the American Red Cross and local veteran-related causes, said parade founder Bonnie Cameron. It took parade participants 26 minutes to cross the start line at Santa Fe College before winding through Gainesville streets for more than an hour, shutting down University Avenue. The riders were filmed as they crossed the finish line under a giant American flag held aloft by crane. Although the video will be submitted to the Guinness World Records agency, the potential record was rarely mentioned. Focus was on support for veterans and public safety officers. "We have a lot of events at this college. There is none that gives us more pride than this," SFC President Jackson Sasser said during the parade's opening ceremony, which was attended by more than 1,000 people. As Toby Keith's "American Soldier" blasted during the ceremony, hundreds of participants crowded the stage to shake the hands of the two grand marshals, Purple Heart recipients Sgt. Catlin Mixson and Sgt. 1" Class John Borders. "I never thought I would be able to get off that stage," said Mixson, "We have a lot of events at this college. There is none that gives us more pride than this." Jackson Sasser SFC President who is from Williston. Ed Wedge, who served eight years in the Air Force, rode in the parade wearing a full stormtrooper outfit. Wedge said his white and black motorcycle was "begging for a 'Star Wars' costume." Wedge said he'll be back next year to continue to support the veterans, including his son, Sgt. Philip Wedge, who is in Iraq serving his second tour.

Alachua County Jail officials push inmate GED courses By CURT DEVINE Alligator Contributing Writer -Officials at the Alachua County Jail are hoping a little education could go a long way in encouraging inmates to pursue degrees. Since the beginning of the year, 41 of the jail's inmates have passed the General Education Development test, almost double the 22 inmates who passed in 2007, according to an Alachua County Sheriff's Department news release. In 2006, 15 inmates passed. Officials believe the increase in passing rates is motivating more inmates to enroll in GED preparation courses. Eugene Morris, the bureau chief of inmate programs and services, said his department has stressed the importance of education since he took his position in January. Morris said he tells all inmates that education can decrease their chances of being incarcerated again. "It's a golden opportunity and second chance," he said. "I think our inmates are starting to see how much a little education can improve their lives." All inmates who test below a ninth-grade level in reading, writing or math are eligible to attend GED classes and take the test through a partnership between the jail and the Alachua County School Board, the news release stated. In 2008, inmates tested at an average of a fourth-grade level. Leanne Lawrence, a GED instructor at the jail, said with more inmates earning GEDs than the previous two years combined, her students are more motivated and eager to leam. Many of the inmates' personal discussions have shifted from money and relationships to education and grades, Local she said. News "Their excitement is contagious," Lawrence said. "Many inmates are fighting to get into my class to study fractions or reading comprehension." Lawrence said the she tries to teach the most important information quickly because some of her students are incarcerated only 40 to 60 days. She structures the course to focus on the most common types of test questions, such as percentages and basic reading skills, she said. Lawrence recalled one inmate nicknamed Willy who enrolled in her course at a thirdgrade math level. After a few weeks of studying, he scored a 550 on the GED math section. A 410 out of 800 is required to pass. He was so thrilled that he ran into her classroom, picked her up and tried to spin her around, she said. "The test has become more of a privilege and challenge around the jail," Lawrence said. "Everyone wants to see if they've got what it takes to pass." 352.336.9349 1402 W University Ave EQUAL HOUSING OPPORTUNITY Call us.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2008 N ALLIGATOR, 5 E-cards urge sexual partners to get tested for STDs 0 CARDS CAN BE SENT ANONYMOUSLY. By DEANA CASIMANO Alligator Contributing writer People send e-cards for birthdays, holidays or to express a simple "thinking of you." Now, an increasing number of people are sending virtual cards to inform past sexual partners they may have a sexually transmitted disease. Although an e-card may not be the best way to break such sensitive news, the goal of the Web site inSpot.org is to get people tested and treated, said Migling Cuervo, an epidemiologist at the Florida Department of Health Bureau of Sexually Transmitted Diseases. The site's Florida section was launched in May 2007. The site, developed by the nonprofit company Internet Sexuality Information Services, includes customized Web sites for nine U.S. cities, 10 states and three international sites. The Florida Department of Health Bureau of STDs maintains the content on the inSpot Florida site. -"Any additional tool that we can use to power individuals in Florida is a wonderful thing," said Sherese Bleechington, statewide health educator at the Florida.Department of Health. Each city, state and international Web site offers a choice of six different e-cards. The sender chooses the STD to which they may have exposed their partner and can include a personal message before sending it anonymously or with their e-mail address. The recipient of the card is then directed to a page with disease-specific information. Samantha Evans, a GatorWell Health Promotion specialist, said the Web site is an effective method for reaching partners who might otherwise be unreachable and for those who want to remain anonymous. According to a report in the Public Library of Science Medicine journal, more than 30,000 people have sent more than 49,500 e-cards through inSpot since its launch in 2004. "Any additional tool that we can use to power individuals in Florida is a wonderful thing." Sherese Bleechington Health educator at the Florida Department of Health Evans said the site does have its share of problems. For example, some of the cards make a joke out of a serious situation, such as one card that reads, "I got screwed while screwing, you might have too. Get checked for STDs if you haven't recently." Evans said students don't take advantage of the STD testing and treatment services offered by UF's student health center. The Student Health Care Center performed about 520 HIV tests and 1,000 chlamydia tests between Jan. 1 and June 30. Evans says that number is low when compared to the 50,000 or so students on campus. While the traditional method of telling a sexual partner is in person, Evans said the bottom line is that people should be notified and go for testing. Annual art festival draws 100,000 By CURT DEVINE Alligator Contributing Writer Artists, vendors and dancing green elves filled Gainesville's downtown streets Saturday and Sunday. With a few thousand more than last year's 100,000 attendees, the 27th annual Downtown Festival & Art Show provided art enthusiasts with a wide selection of paintings, crafts and photography. Event coordinator Linda Piper said many artists and vendors sold out of products before the festival ended. The-festival's 250 artists competed for Around $14,000 in prizes, funded by artist regisain e tration fees. Bill and Jon Slade of Jacksonville won the $2,000 best-in-show award for their solid-glass sculptures. The two artists, who are father and son, have participated in the festival for almost 25 years, but it was their first time winning the award. Jason Anderson, a ceramics artist from Birmingham, Ala., said shows like the Gainesville festival are nice because of the college-town atmosphere, but competition among artists is intense. "I've been competing with some of these guys for years," Anderson said. "We're like a group of gypsies' traveling the country together."

6, ALLIGATOR E MONDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2008 Editorial You've Got Mail E-cards lame alternative to confrontation Y ou've got to love the cowardice that comes with increased technology. We know we do. Humans invented the bow and arrow so they could hunt and fight from a safe distance, rather than risk their lives at point-blank range. Later, a telephone call became a less-than-suitable substitute for a face-to-face breakup. Text messaging and emails have served to further reduce the testicular fortitude of would-be relationship enders. In keeping with this yellow-bellied tradition, inSpot.org has developed an e-card system that lets you inform sexual partners that you might have given them something itchy and swollen. If we received an e-card that said, "I got screwed while screwing, you might have too -get checked for STDs if you haven't recently," our heads would probably explode out of pure fury. It would be bad enough to get the news in person that our downstairs had gotten mixed up, but to send an e-card is the most spineless method we've ever heard of. Have some pride, and be creative if you're going to wimp out. Send us a singing telegram to explain the raspberry patch on our undercarriages -at least we'd have someone to punch in the face. We understand it's better to keep people informed by any means necessary, but while these e-cards may help curb the spread of sexually transmitted diseases, we think the increase in random acts of violence would cancel out the e-cards' positive impact. Comeback Kid R emember "Homeward Bound: The Incredible R ourney"? The movie told the tale of two dogs and a cat who got separated from their owners and were forced to trek through the wilderness to get back home. They fought porcupines, fat animal control employees and -worst of all -random holes in the ground. In true family movie fashion, the trio overcame all the obstacles to make it back to their family. It's time to forget about the adventures of Chance, Sassy and Shadow because a dog named Max has taken their fictional tale and stomped it to irrelevance with his tiny Maltese paws. Max, who was reported stolen by a family in Brandon several months ago, recently showed up in Chicago. The dog was identified using an implanted microchip, picked up by a Maltese rescue group based in Racne, Wis., and flown back to Florida Saturday. If this isn't a feel-good story, we don't know what is. Everyone likes dogs; how could you not root for this one? We don't know if we could survive on our own in Chicago for months. It boggles our minds that a dog weighing less than 10 pounds could make it all the way to the Windy City, much less survive and get back home. .We doubt a Maltese's ability to rely on its hunting skills -they're pocket-sized. Ali we can guess is Max either found the most generous Italian restaurant in Chicago and lived off leftover spaghetti a la "Lady and the Tramp," or he developed a taste for beetles. We're glad to see a story about a lost dog that isn't just a cover-up for your dad backing the Mazda over little Sparky. Congratulations, Max. ,a 1he independent fiorida alligator Jessica DaSilva Adam Wynn EDITOR OPINIONS EDITOR Hilary Lehman, Ken Schwencke MANAGING EDITORS The Alligator encourages comments from readers Letters to the editor should not exceed 150 wotds (about one letter-sized page).

Opinions ALLIGATOR www.alligator.org/opinion Available from Commercial News Providers C W1 Column Part-time pundits ruin election season F inally, they are gone. After two years of hearing them babble endlessly into my ear about how Sen. Barack Obama is a Muslim, Sen. Hillary Clinton is a socialist and Rudy Giuliani used the NYPD as his own personal paramilitary, the weekend warriors of the political scene have begun to crawl back under their respective rocks. They'll have to wait another four years to pounce. Hailing from all corners of UF, these engineering, biochemistry and sometimes even political science majors pop out of the woodwork every two to four years to drop their preferred political knowledge on our feeble minds. Did you know Obama is actually part Arab? You do now. Ever wonder if actor Fred Thompson is actually senile? A five-minute conversation with one of these aspiring politicos would definitely clear it up for you. I am certainly not saying people are in the wrong for sharing their uniquely deep thoughts; everyone is entitled to an opinion. To the contrary, I think individuals should share as they wish, regardless of whether they are a political science major or are permanently interested in politics. Like a game show or a horse race, the presidential race and sometimes even congressional races can be entertaining. The more attention people pay to political campaigns, the more educated on the issues and candidates they will become. I can't stand the people who assault you verbally if you can't name all of Rep. Dennis Kucinich's children, or if you're left speechless when asked to name Rep. Duncan Hunter's birthplace (yes, he did run for president this year). These weekend warriors make the political process a pain for the rest of us. By all means, share your thoughts, feelings and opinions -I would be glad to give your point of view a listen. Unfortunately for all the fauxpundits, having an opinion does not make you an expert. Too many times, conversations with one of these temporary political geniuses leave me questioning the intellect of the Kyle Robisch average American voter. letters@ailigator.org Simply pulling obscure facts regarding the presidential races out of a hat doesn't qualify you to be president or to tell me how I should feel about the race. About two weeks before Election Day, I was sitting in the Hub reading for my public health engineering class and eating my lunch when an aspiring neoconservative noticed the Gators for Obama pin on my backpack. Naturally, he couldn't resist the opportunity to bless me with his unparalleled understanding of the political universe. "Did you know Obama supports Iran's desire to nuke Israel?" he asked me. I was caught off guard and left speechless. He walked away reminding me to "do my research" before backing a particular candidate. Clearly, this isn't true -even if one believes Obama is soft with regard to foreign policy, very few believe he wants Iran to destroy Israel. Somehow, though, this newfound political science buff had the gall to walk up to me and inform me of my candidate's political beliefs. People like this make life hell for the rest of us by refusing to allow us to enjoy our beliefs. If you want to share your thoughts, then feel free. Don't tell me I'm wrong because we disagree.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 7 Letters to the Editor The Fest not that different from frat party As someone who gets mislabeled a scene kid regularly, I've come to understand the plight of the common hipster. The skinny jeans, flannel shirts, fixy bikes and messenger bags create a supple atmosphere for ridicule. On more than one occasion, I have been verbally intimidated by SUVs full of pastel shirts, usually ending with a quick heckling and acceleration through a late yellow light. Like I said, I understand the plight of the common hipster. We non-pastel-shirt-wearing students feel similarly about the atmosphere and attitude of fraternities. Although outnumbered, the hipsters set aside one weekend a year (when all the pastel shirts are in Jacksonville) to celebrate their interesting style of music and art. Why is it that members of a subculture so entrenched in their disgust at the modem fraternity feel obligated during their time of glory to act in a way so consistent with their enemies? As an observer of The nessed fight after fight, lo drunken loud scream, sI stumbling, bad screaming more bad screaming music hours of the morning for t ous days.

Carolyn Terranova 4LS presents evth as a woman Em N Opposing team's fans deserve respect Shame on you, University Athletic Association staff. Herding Rollins College's fans around from section to section like cattle during the men's basketball game Thursday night was disgraceful. Would you want Gators fans to be treated that way at other teams' arenas? I can understand not letting the Rollins fans stand in an aisle, but chasing them around a half-empty arena was uncalled for. It was an exhibition game, for crying out loud, and one we knew we would win. So what if their fans want to stand and cheer in the nosebleed Section 3? Our fans are allowed to stand and cheer, and we encourage rowdiness, yet part of the Rollins group was escorted out by University Police. They weren't in anyone's way and did not need to be babysat by six O'Connell Center staff members and three cops. Stop your power trip and let the teams play and the fans cheer. Noelle Shema UF Alumna Guest Column Election celebration shows enthusiasm for change, Obama san American, the proudest moment of my life came on Tuesday night. No, it wasn't the second I found out Sen. Barack Obama had been elected president. It wasn't even during his acceptance speech, when his eloquence and humility left me absolutely speechless. It was afterward, without CNN, the snacks or the booze. After election night concluded, my friends and I headed back to my apartment. As we got out of my car, we heard a growing roar from a few blocks away At the corner of University Avenue and 17th Street stood Obama supporters waving and shouting in elation as cars drove by The honking, yelling and energetic frenzy warmed the cool November night. It was a feeling that I had never experienced, and it wasn't because the candidate I had voted for won. I joined them, running back and forth across the street, jumping deliriously and screaming louder than I ever had at a football game. Andrea W h e n Williamson I stopped Speaking Out to catch my breath, I looked around. I saw black, white, Asian, Latino, blue eyes and brown eyes. We were all there, together, hugging each other, shouting together and running side by side in the crosswalks. We all knew that if Obama won, Tuesday night would be special. We will tell his story to our children and grandchildren. We will immortalize his moment in our memories and history books. At least on an abstract, intellectual level, his triumph would mark this election in a way that no other has. Maybe my pessimism about America's narrow-mindedness had blinded me from the compassion we are all capable of showing. Maybe I had been too worried about him losing or too saturated in his message of hope and change that I had forgotten what he was fighting for. Above all, I didn't think that a small group of people waving Obama signs and running in the crosswalks could make me feel so hopeful. The celebration on the street epitomized what Obama's win signified. We can overcome our differences. We can look past the racism that plagues our history. We can unite. Yes we can. And on Tuesday night, we did. -To all of you who were there, thank you. I have never been prouder.

8, ALLIGATOR N MONDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2008 Sarah Hsu / Alligator Start Dashboard Confessional singer Chris Carrabba and other members of the band perform during the MTV Rock Band Live Tour on Saturday night. Bands team up CONCERT, from page 1 ager, said fans tense up on stage after substantial differences in their practice and live scores. "They act all big, but as soon as they get on stage, they get stage fright," Caddy said. "In Orlando, I had a veteran from Iraq that said this was scarier than going to war." During a 45-minute set by the Plain White T's, singer Tom Higgenson brought out his acoustic guitar for "1, 2, 3, 4" and the band's hit song "Hey There Delilah," garnering shrieks and squeals when he jumped the barricades to greet a few fans. When Dashboard Confessional graced the stage, Carrabba immediately made reference to the band's Florida roots. "Last time I was in this gym, my brother was graduating," Carrabba said. The band showed off some card tricks as a backdrop to "Thick As Thieves" and continued with an acoustic "Screaming Infidelities." Carrabba was even joined by members of the first two bands in an energetic rendition of P!nk's "So What." After almost three hours of waiting, camera flashes bounced off a circus set of rainbow drapes and drooping yellow lights towering over two multicolor pillars where Panic at the Disco's drummer and pianist settled. Band members wore either paisley shirts with raggedy hair or tight-fitting suits and mop-top haircuts, each seeming to represent a different Beatles' phase. The garb was amplified when they played "I Want You (She's So Heavy)," a psychedelic ballad of The Beatles', as a bridge between their own "In The Middle of the Summer" and "I Write Sins Not Tragedies." Singer Brandon Uiie ended the show with a final cover of The Isley Brothers' "Shout!" that made fans dance throughout the aisles. "I loved Panic at the Disco," said 14-year-old Katie Lowe, of Hawthorne, who attended the show with her mother. "I told my mom they were groovy."

Then, Tebow and the offense proceeded to score on their first four possessions, with the quarterback accounting for all four scores, two on the ground and two through the air on passes to Louis Murphy and Riley Cooper. The third drive was set up by an Ahmad Black interception at the Vanderbilt 26-yard line. And the Gators would have made it five straight drives with a score if not for a controversial fumble by Percy Harvin at the goal line. UF would still tack on another 7 points before halftime with a 41-yard pass from Tebow to David Nelson with 8 seconds left in the second quarter. With that, the rout was on. Most of the black-and-gold-clad fans had left and Gators fans braved the cold -temperatures to celebrate UF's second appearance in the conference title game in the last three years. You probably won't see too much partying from the Gators just yet. "It's not like it's going to be easy going into Atlanta," Tebow said. "We got to focus on (South Carolina and Florida State) if we want to be in the biggest game of all."

Sport MONDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2008 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org UF FOOTBALL Tebow continues to find stride as season progresses By EVAN DREXLER Alligator Staff Writer edrexier@aIligator.org NASHVILLE, Tenn. -The Gators had such a dominating night on offense that coach Urban Meyer decided to take quarterback Tim Tebow out of the game before the third quarter was complete. Backup quarterback John Brantley finished off No. 3 UF's 42-14 victory Saturday night, but Tebow had a productive evening before being replaced. Tebow had not been replaced that early since UF's seasonopening contest against Hawaii. "Tim Tebow played tremendous in the first half," Meyer said. The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner passed for three touchdowns and ran for two more in the first half, including a career-long touchdown run of 26 yards on the Gators' third "Tim Tebow played tremendous in the first half." Urban Meyer UF football coach When he came out of the game, Tebow had 171 yards through the air on 12-of-17 passing and 88 yards on the ground on just 11 carries. "We came out, and we knew some of those option plays (I would) probably get some keeps," Tebow said. "I got 'em, and I tried to make the most of 'em." His hard-nosed running caught his coach's eye. "He was very aggressive tonight," Meyer said. "A couple of them he just dropped his pads and went. Those weren't designed runs." He also had a great pocket presence against the SEE TEBOW, PAGE 15 Andrew Stanfill/ Alligator Staff UF quarterback Tim Tebow rushes for a touchdown in the first quarter of the Gators' 42-14 win against Vanderbilt on Saturday in Nashville, Tenn. Simply put, UF is best in country NASHVILLE, Tenn. aster than a speeding bullet. That's how fast the Gators are storming to Atlanta. Colder than a 38-degree night in Nashville. That's how cold and cutthroat the Gators have been in their past five wins. Stuck between a rock and a hard place. That's where opponents have found themselves when they face the Gators' rare combination of speed and toughness. No, Vanderbilt didn't stand a chance in Saturday night's 42-14 loss. They rolled out of bed, put on their uniforms and stormed the field only to realize they were playing a road game in their own stadium. Maybe it was the knowledge that their Karl Hyppolite Hy-Lite Reels khyppolite@aligator.org Commodores didn't stand a chance. Or maybe it was the knowledge that Kevin Costner and Modem West were in town for one night only. Whatever the cause, Saturday night's game was a road game for UF in name only. UF doesn't play road games anymore. Each game seems to be a traveling show that's a cross between a pep rally and a party as the Gators make their way to the raves that will take place later in Atlanta and Miami. SEE KARL, PAGE 15 Dunlap blocks two punts By BRIAN STEELE Alligator Staff Writer bsteele@alligator.org NASHVILLE, Tenn. -It was a block party -again. No. 3 UF found more ways to block punts in Saturday's 42-14 rout of Vanderbilt, getting their hands on two of Brett Upson's kicks. It was UF's fifth and sixth blocked punts of the season. "(CoachUrban Meyer) knew everything they were going to do," said defensive end Carlos Dunlap, who had the two blocks. "And he had us prepare for everything they were going to do." After watching the Commodores do a similar punt formation against them last year, it wasn't surprising from the Gators' point of view. "We had a good feeling they'd do the rugby kick," Meyer said. "It's all personnel. It's the best (punt block) group I've ever had." VANDY GETS PENALIZED: In a game that finished with 16 penalties for 150 yards, the Commodores were the ones that were hurt the most. They were penalized nine times for 80 yards. "It was too hard to make first downs after that deficit," Vanderbilt coach Bobby Johnson said. "We were digging ourselves even deeper with those penalties." Johnson credited sevDl eral of the penalties to his younger players. "Wejusthadcrazypenaltieshurtingourselves," quarterback Chris Nickson said. INJURY UPDATES: Linebacker A.J.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2008 N ALLIGATOR, 15 UF DEFENSE Black helps lead turnaround for Gators secondary By MIKE McCALL Alligator Staff Writer mmccalt@amligator.org NASHVILLE, Tenn. -No. 3 UF furthered its impressive run with Saturday night's 42-14 win against Vanderbilt, giving it 38 points or more in the last five contests. But the Gators' high-scoring ways shouldn't come as a surprise. The big plays from Tim Tebow & Co. were always there, but solid defense is UF's new trick. Ever since allowing 31 points to Mississippi in a September loss, the Gators (8-1, 6-1 Southeastern Conference) have held their opponents to an average of 11.4 points per game, a resurgence best exemplified by the secondary and, more specifically, strong safety Ahmad Black. In a year, Black has gone from coach Urban Meyer's "recruiting mistake" list to the forefront of the Gators' success as the team's unlikely leader for momentum-shifters. Black tallied his team-high fifth interception of the season against Vanderbilt when he made a diving catch off a deflected pass to set up the Gators' third touchdown of the first quarter. Those are the big plays UF is getting used to from the sophomore, who has returned two picks for touchdowns this season. "He's like a cat. If you throw him, he's always going to land in football position," Meyer said. "Our guys make fun of him for it, but it's true. He's always in football position, and that's why he's such an excellent tackler. He's too small and too slow, but he's a very heady player, and he's always in the right position. That's how he gets away with it." The rest of the defense is following Black's example, as the Gators have 14 interceptions, already more than the 11 last year's squad tallied all season. And the secondary isn't just turning errant passes into turnovers. It's limiting big plays, making solid tackles and even supporting the run defense. Black, free safety Major Wright and cornerback Joe Haden are all among the team's leaders in tackles, and Wright and Haden had six each against the Commodores, while the unit held Vanderbilt to just 114 passing yards. Just as those three and freshman corner Janoris Jenkins were hitting their strides, another playmaker emerged, albeit a little later than expected. Freshman Will Hill, thought by many to be a potential starter after Dorian Munroe went down with an ACL tear in the preseason, has turned in his best performances recently after becoming a special teams star earlier in the year. Hill led the Gators in tackles against Kentucky (11), managed five against Georgia last week and added five more Saturday, and he played a key role in Black's early interception. Hill blitzed and plowed through Vanderbilt quarterback Mackenzi Adams just as he let the ball go, pressuring him into throwing toward a covered receiver. Although Hill hasn't broken into the starting lineup at safety, Meyer is finding ways to keep him on the field by playing him at nickel back. "He played great, and he's going to be a great player if he keeps working at it," Meyer said. UF strong safety Ahmad Black helps wrap up Vanderbilt running back Jeff Jennings during the Gators' 42-14 win against the Commodores on Saturday in Nashville, Tenn. QB back in Heisman hunt after string of multi-touchdown games TEBOW from page 14 Commodores. On one touchdown, a 41-yard strike to wideout David Nelson with eight seconds left in the first half, Tebow stayed planted in the pocket so long, Vanderbilt's secondary started running back to the line of scrimmage. Instead, Nelson was wide open in the end zone for the score. Putting up numbers like he did has him in the thick of Heisman talk for the second straight year. Still, Tebow's chances were hindered by stout performances from other Heisman front-runners. Texas Tech quarterback Graham Harrell had six touchdowns and 456 passing yards in the undefeated Red Raiders' victory against Oklahoma State. Texas gunslinger Colt McCoy racked up 300 yards and five touchdowns Football in the Longhorns' beatdown of Baylor. Oklahoma signalcaller Sam Bradford tossed four touchdowns and tallied 320 yards .in his team's 66-28 victory at Texas A&M. Always humble, Tebow deflected any talk of him competing for the Heisman. "It's really cool, and I'd love it, but it's not a focus at all," Tebow said. "It's not even something I worry about or think about." Heisman talk would not be unwarranted. After starting the season slow, Tebow has hit his stride in the last few glnes. Tebow had five total touchdowns against Georgia last weekend and picked up four the previous week against Kentucky. His career high of seven total touchdowns -five rushing and two passing -came last season against South Carolina in Columbia. S0 B.5pikes, 12 Percy Harvin, 6 A. Hernandez, 2 J.

Though they've been really -nt of at (1xtr-mb loc) ncam e on ri came through with two blocks against the Commodores. Both punts, and Dunlap said it is really easy to block those kicks w blocks came on rugbiy-style hen you're 6-foot-6 like he is. 2 blocked punts, 1 tackle Hill has really come on in thelast few games, and his five tackles Saturday night were good for fifth on the team. His biggest play did not show up on the stat sheet: a bone-jarring hit against Vanderbilt quarterback Mackenzi Adams that forced an interception to UF strong safety Ahmad Black. The crowd in Nashville clearly moaned, feeling Adams' pain. It's a pain Hill should be causing for years to come. 5 tackles, 0.5 TFL I I: ij Vicky Cabrera and Evan Drexler / Alligator Staff KARL, from page 14 And you know no one parties like the folks in Atlanta and Miami. After the past five games, which have looked more like matchups between the Harlem Globetrotters and the Washington Generals, I'm ready to say the Gators are the best team in the country. No team can match UF's combination of flash (Percy Harvin, Chris Rainey and Jeff Demps), toughness (Brandon Spikes) and swagger (the whole team). They've made every play of the game worth watching. I'm used to ignoring punts, but you can't with Brandon James returning them for touchdowns or Demps racing past everyone and blocking the kick. I It's not that the Gators are blowing teams out. College football teams have been running up the score for decades. It's the way it's being done. UF is outplaying opponents in every phase of the game. What's a team to do if you can't stop the other guys from scoring, can't score yourself and can't even get a punt away to at least make the Gators break a sweat on their way to the end zone? The answer is not much. I'm at the point where I think only Texas Tech and Texas can possibly take down UF. Their offenses have the speed to match the Gators' defensive athieticism, and they're talented enough defensively to keep the Gators from scoring every time they have the ball. Thankfully, Penn State got out of everyone's way and lost to Iowa so we could have a proper national championship game rather than the type of one-sided thrashing we've seen the past two seasons. And as Urban Meyer stood with his arm around his wife, Shelley, with his players reveling in the fact that they had taken over Nashville, he smiled as the band played the fight song. It was a smile filled with confidence. A confidence of what has come (a berth in the Southeastern Conference championship game) and what could be (a second national championship in three years). January 8, 2009. That's the day all of that dould come true. ---NE-W 19s ===
