RTS bus,



car collide

* GPD: THE CAR'S DRIVER SUFFERED
'SERIOUS INJURIES.'

By KATHERINE BEIN
Alligator Writer
kbein@allgator org
An 82-year-old woman was taken to Shands at
UF after a crash involving an RTS bus Monday.
Ann Ruffin was the only person injured in
the crash, according to Gainesville Police Sgt. Joe
Raulerson.
Raulerson said the bus driver and the few pas-
sengers were not hurt in the crash, which hap-
pened at Northwest 23rd Street and West Uni-
versity Avenue at about 2 p.m.
He said Ruffin was driving her 2008 Cadil-
lac eastbound on University Avenue and tried
to turn left onto Northwest 23rd Street when the
RTS bus crashed into her passenger side.
The impact caused major damage to the front
and side of Ruffin's car, shattered the windows
and set off the air bags, Raulerson said.
Ruffin's injuries were serious but not life-
threatening, said GPD spokesman Keith Kameg.
Investigators are trying to determine who was
at fault, he added.

Breach reveals SSNs


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator org
UF announced Monday that a privacy
breach released 25 Social Security numbers.
The numbers are believed to belong to
trainers who worked with the Florida Traf-
fic and Bicycle Safety Education program in
2006.
Officials aren't sure if anyone accessed
the information, but it was found in an un-
protected file last month during a routine
security check, said UF spokeswoman Jan-
ine Sikes.
"We are not aware of anyone who has
used it for fraudulent purposes," she said.
The file also contained the names of 34
people, but the names didn't match up with
the Social Security numbers, she said.


"They don't really know whose Social
Security numbers they were," she said.
UF doesn't normally publicize such
a small privacy breach, she said, but the
university hasn't been able to identify and
contact the individuals involved, so officials
decided to post the information online.
In 2008, UF experienced
On 107 significant privacy breach
Campus incidents that involved the
records of almost 355,000 peo-
ple, according to information presented to
UF's Board of Trustees in March.
Sikes said UF is constantly improving its
efforts to prevent privacy breaches.
Officials are asking anyone who believes
their information may have been involved
in the recent breach to go to privacy.ufl.edu
or call UF's Privacy Office Hotline at 1-877-
657-9133.

Man takes tape, not nap


By PATRICK ANNESTY
Alligator Writer
pannesty@alllgator org

Richard D. Humphrey went to jail over
a roll of electrical tape and a bottle of hot
sauce that police say he took from a house-
boat.
At about 4:30 a.m. Monday, a witness
reported seeing Humphrey enter a house-
boat at 3020 N Main St., where it was
parked at Jim Walker Auto Sales, accord-
ing to a police report.
The witness said Humphrey hid inside
the houseboat when he noticed he was be-
ing watched.
Gainesville Police Department officer
Edward Ratliff found Humphrey on the
3900 block of North Main Street.
When confronted, Humphrey said he
entered the houseboat "to take a nap."


In Humphrey's front right pocket Rat-
liff found a bottle of hot sauce worth $1,
and in his back left pocket a roll of electri-
cal tape worth $3.
Humphrey admitted to stealing both
items, police said.
Humphrey, 47, of
542 NE Seventh Ave.,
was charged with un-
armed burglary, a fel-
ony, and petit theft, a
misdemeanor.
He was booked at
Humphrey the Alachua County Jail
at 6:03 a.m. Monday.
GPD spokesman Lt. Keith Kameg said
there was no indication why Humphrey
took the hot sauce and tape.
"Sometimes, intelligence and reason do
not play into [these situations]," Kameg
said.

tou (94) slid inside
Saturday against
Troy as part of UF's
3-3-5 defense. The
Gators will use

against Tennessee
this weekend in
passing situations.

New dean reflects on
Gator Engineering
No engineer is
an island.
The most suc-
cessful engineers
immerse them-
selves in the lives
of the people
around them,
finding ways to
make life better
for everyone. They Cammy Abernathy
spend their careers in the service of
others, solving practical problems and
meeting tangible needs. Their passion
for people motivates them to do the
unexpected, attempt the risky and at-
tain the impossible.
The best engineers the ones truly
destined to make a difference reflex-
ively reach beyond cultural, temporal
and disciplinary boundaries. They
understand that isolationism is a death
sentence to creativity, but embracing
differences cultivates innovation.

lege of Engineering, this is the kind of
culture we encourage, and our students
are heavily recruited as a result. It also
allows us to create new interdisciplin-
ary programs attacking problems from
a variety of perspectives. Because of our
people and our broad array of research
initiatives, our college has the opportu-
nity to be a leader in this new approach
to addressing issues in energy, health
care, sustainable infrastructure and the
environment, information technology,
nanotechnology, and a myriad of other
questions facing society.
It's an exciting time to be a new
dean of engineering especially Gator
Engineering.

A Shrimp School participant gives some shrimp a snill test.

Something's fishy about

this international class


With 90 percent of shrimp being imported to the U.S., American consumers can thank the
University of Florida for keeping their favorite seafood safe, fresh and tasty.
UF's Shrimp School is an annual training program to educate shrimp processors and regula-
tors from all over the world. The three-day training program, organized by Steven Otwell of the
Aquatic Foods Products Lab at UF, has been held each summer since 1995.
"The class is already full for next year," said Laura Garrido, Shrimp School coordinator. "I don't
have to advertise anymore."
The popularity of Shrimp School has spread mostly by word-of-mouth, and students are en-
rolled on a first-come basis. While the ideal class size is 25 students, recent years' classes have been
capped at 50 students.
Attendees often include shrimp suppliers and buyers, plant managers, representatives from
private food labs, vice presidents of quality control and assurance, and chefs. Some of this year's
attendees included representatives from supermarkets, research labs and seafood processors and
distributors. Attendees receive a certificate for completing the course.
"I found Shrimp School to be a very educational experience in many aspects," said Casey
Marion, a seafood specialist at the Jacksonville-based Beaver Street Fisheries, which imports frozen
seafood from more than 50 countries.
The course is taught by UF faculty and U.S. Food and Drug Administration representatives.
"We bring the world experts (to teach the class)," Garrido said.
Shrimp School is taught in a classroom, as well as a lab, to give the students hands-on experi-
ence. In the lab, students perform a sensory evaluation to determine how shrimp should look, feel,
taste and smell.
"Each day we had the opportunity to work with FDA sensory experts who took us on a cali-
bration process of smelling different odor standards that represent the freshest of quality to the
absolute worst smelling odors you can think of," Marion said.

ESPN highlights SEC research
The University of Florida has joined with the 11 other Southeastern
Conference institutions in launching the SEC Academic Network,
a Web site designed to showcase the schools' academic and research
endeavors, economic development and more.
The site, www.secacademicnetwork.com, was developed with tech-
nology and coordination from ESPN Digital Media and Origin Digital.
Current UF videos include a hurricane simulator, air-cooled shoul-
der pads, a robotic car and Gatorade. New videos will be added weekly.
Contact Dan Williams, danwill@ufl.edu, with submission ideas.

Site shares community service ideas
The University of Florida "Colleges with a Conscience" Web site
has become more efficient because of improved search features that

Student's site sells overstock books at 'bailout' prices


* THE SITE OFFERS MORE
THAN 21,000 TITLES.

By ANNIE BOGGS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Andrew Koumi took his business
skills from the classroom to the real
world with the launch of recession-
based Web site Bookbama.com.


In order to help students strug-
gling with their finances, the site
promises to sell students "bargain
books at bailout brices."
Koumi, a UF senior, purchases
books from publishers who print
too many copies and sells them for
less than half of the original cost.
He said a $15 book can sell for as
little as $2 on his Web site, adding
he offers a variety of books grouped


into categories ranging from "Body,
Mind & Spirit" to "Literary Criti-
cism."
Koumi came up with the idea
for his business after
Local researching the cost
News of opening a textbook
store.
Although he originally operated
his business out of his apartment
closet, he had to relocate his inven-


tory to two warehouses in St. Peters-
burg, Fla., and New Jersey.
"(It) kept getting bigger and big-
ger," he said.
Updated each day, the inventory
is now at more than 21,000 books.
Koumi said students looking for
even cheaper books should check
out bargain book bailouts, a weekly
promotion in which he makes 25
random book titles free.


Customers must pay shipping
and handling and can order up to
100 free books. Koumi said the pro-
motion has worked because most
customers order regularly priced
books along with their free ones.
Customers are not simply pur-
chasing one or two books as they do
from major bookstores either.
"Most of my customers order
around 15 titles," Koumi said.


GAINESVILLE CITY COMMISSION

Commissioners discuss improvements for transportation


By DALIA SABBAGH
Alligator Writer

The Gainesville City Commission has a
desire named streetcar.
City commissioners voiced ideas like
making the area more pedestrian- and bicy-
cle-friendly, encouraging more bus use and
an creating an electric streetcar system at
their Monday workshop.
Regional Transit System has jumped
from about 1 million passengers in 2000 to
about 9 million this year, said Commission-


er Jack Donovan.
"We want to provide the best transpor-
tation we can, meaning clean and reliable,"
Donovan said, adding that he believes it's
possible to restructure University Avenue
without affecting traffic.
Other ideas included a Bus Rapid Tran-
sit, which would operate like a train system
with a prepaid fare, and strengthening the
connection between UF and downtown.
One goal of the workshop was to figure
out whether the project would qualify for
federal funding, Donovan said.
According to the city planning staff, the


plan would not cost more than $20 million,
would not have a regional impact and would
not be completed within
three years of receiving
the grant all of which
are necessary to qualify
for stimulus funds.
While the broader
plan, including the BRT
and electric streetcar sys-
Donovan tems, would far exceed
$20 million, the more im-
mediate goal of landscaping and widening
sidewalks and bicycle lanes would not meet


the $20-million minimum.
Donovan said the project may not be
possible for at least five years.
But he said smaller steps may still be an
option. The development of a lane dedi-
cated to public transportation would ignite
development downtown and help develop-
ers feel safer investing in downtown com-
munities.
"When you have increased population
downtown, businesses find it a good place
to locate," he said. "It really depends on
federal funding, but we'll be paying close
attention to this in the next few years."

Police follow through with seat belt enforcement


By DEREK GILLIAM
Alligator Contributing Writer

Local enforcement of Florida's June seat
belt law is no joke.
During the first month of enforcement,
the Gainesville Police Department issued
24.5 percent more tickets than it did in July
2008, and 32.5 percent more tickets were
given this August than in August 2008.
Before the law went into effect, people
could only be cited for not wearing seat
belts if they were pulled over for another
offense.
Now, it's a primary offense officers
can pull over a car if the driver or passen-
ger is not wearing a seat belt.
In Alachua County, the fine for not


wearing a seat belt is $104.
Thomas Baker, an aerospace engineer-
ing senior, said he thinks the law is an at-
tempt to raise revenue in a bad economy.
"The police department is more like a
bill collector than a law enforcer," Baker
said.
Lauren Profis, a UF freshman, said she
could see why it would be difficult for law
enforcement to effectively enforce seat belt
violations and has some concerns about
abuse.
"I don't know how a police officer could
identify a violation while the car is mov-
ing," Profis said.
But GPD Cpl. Michael West said that at
the speeds cars travel around Gainesville,
it is not difficult to detect a violation.


He added that officers must be certain
before they pull someone over for a seat
belt violation.
Failure to wear a seat belt contrib-
utes to more fatalities than any other
single traffic safety-related behavior.
About 63 percent of people killed in au-
tomobile accidents were not wearing seat
belts at the time of their accidents, accord-
ing to the National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration.
Amy Meyer, a UF sophomore, said the
increased enforcement is a good sign and
could end up saving lives.
"I have personally known two friends
who died in car crashes," Meyer said.
"They probably would have survived if
they had been wearing their seat belts."

Battle continues over campus radio station content


* THE NEW FORMAT COULD
PRODUCE MORE JOBS.

BY CAROLYN TILLO
Alligator Writer

Demonstrators held signs and
played cellos last week to show
their opposition to WUFT-FM's


change from classical music to
news and public affairs.
The change, which occurred in
August, has also received posi-
tive feedback from people who
enjoy the news programs, said
Paul Gordon, interim executive
director of UF's Division of Mul-
timedia Properties.
Gordon said the station plans


to add more local news cover-
age.
The increase in local coverage
could lead to more
On volunteer and paid
Campus positions at the sta-
tion for students, he
said.
But Sue Yelton, who organized
the protest group, said she misses


the classical, folk, jazz and blues
music the WUFT-FM's old format
offered. The classical music now
offered by the station's HD2 ra-
dio channel does not replace the
old mix, she said.
"I'm not going to tear out my
sound stereo system in my car to
put in an HD radio that I don't
know will work," she said. "We


want back what we had or some-
thing very similar."
However, Gordon said it is
difficult to get people to agree
with the format change when it is
still so new, and the transition is
going to take time.
"It's a matter of really trying
to expand, but it's a crawl, walk,
run process," he said.

Jail Break

Program gives inmates

opportunity to grow
When we think of jailhouses, we are more inclined to
think of "The Shawshank Redemption" than "Julie
and Julia."
However, one Florida minimum-security prison is allow-
ing inmates to put their culinary and horticultural skills to
the test.
The Hillsborough County Jail, located in Tampa, allows
inmates to use peppers grown in its horticulture program to
produce hot sauces with names like "Original," "No Es-
cape," "Smoke" and the yet-to-be-released "Misdemeanor."
The sauces are sold at the jail and online, and all proceeds go
to maintain the program.
We think this is an effective program because it uses no
taxpayer money, allows inmates a bit of self-expression and
leaves them with a certificate in vocational horticulture once
they're out of the slammer.
Plus, the TV spots for the sauces are smoking .
Because Florida is full of landscaping companies, this pro-
gram presents an employment opportunity for inmates upon
release. And because the certificate doesn't mention that it
was earned inside of a prison, it gives them a leg up in be-
coming productive, working members of society.
For combining the redemptive qualities of cooking, grow-
ing produce and creating a product with the concept that
Andy Dufresne clung to in "Shawshank" hope we
would like to commend Hillsborough County Jail for its in-
novative program.
If only the Gainesville man arrested for stealing barbeque
sauce Monday morning was arrested for stealing Jailhouse
hot sauce, we could understand.
Heck, we'd commit a felony to know what "Misdemean-
or" tastes like, too.

Golden rule applies to relationships


A68-year-old man was
honored for 50 years
of service at the
same Missouri McDonald's
last week.
For spending a lifetime
under the golden arches,
Leonard Rhomberg re-
ceived a McFlurry of praise
from his co-workers, who
gave him a cake, gift cards
(to McDonald's) and a St.
Louis Cardinals jersey with
his name across the back.
Things like this keep us
awake at night. Deciding
our futures is tough. Pictur-
ing ourselves as fry-guys
(or girls) for 50 years is Mc-
Frightening.
However, it seems like
Rhomberg might have fig-
ured out a way to avoid any
sort of self-doubt by McLo-
vin' it.
What kind of person does
it take to work at the same
job, without upward mobil-
ity, for 50 years?


Is his tenure a tribute to
his dedication and loyalty,
or is it something that im-
plies a serious lack of ambi-
tion?
Being in or around a Mc-
Donald's a few times a year
is almost too much for us,
but that's not the point.
The point is that
Rhomberg proves it is pos-
sible to be content by know-
ing where you belong. The
Rhomberg's photo shows a
smiling man.
We would like to take his
story as an example of the
fact that happiness doesn't
necessarily come from con-
stantly searching for valida-
tion. Sometimes it comes in
the form of a Happy Meal.
Next time you're stressed
about your future, remind
yourself that happiness can
come from dedication and
sticking to what you know,
even if it is flipping burgers
five days a week.

had a friend who was really into returning lost things to
their owners. One of my more resonant memories of this
is when she found a teddy bear on the sidewalk.
The bear was in pretty decent condition, albeit a little
dirty, and it had a small, custom-made, inscribed locket
around its neck.
So my friend picked up the teddy bear and took it home.
She did some meticulous do-it-yourself dry cleaning on
the bear, shined up the locket, and hung up some "Found:
One Teddy Bear" fliers near where she found it. She always
handled the teddy bear carefully, washing her hands before
touching it and placing it in a large Ziploc bag to keep it
from getting dirty.
At one point, her mom asked her why she was going
through all this trouble for a stranger's lost stuffed animal.
My friend shrugged and said, "It may not be mine, but I
bet whomever it does belong to would probably like it if it
weren't all fucked up and shit. So I'll take care of it while
I've got it."
And I've always thought that's some of the best 21st-
century relationship advice I've ever heard.
I'll explain.
Our generation seems to get a lot of flak for the tran-
sience of our relationships, as if we consider commitment
obsolete. I guess it's not an entirely indefensible argument.
The ease, for instance, with which we change our Facebook
relationship statuses should give us pause. In fact, there's a
relationship status that codifies non-commitment commit-
ment the strangely equivocal "It's Complicated."
And if nothing else, think of the phrase "hook up" an
intentionally cryptic verb that could mean anything from
coffee-having to laid-getting with an ambiguity that serves
the purpose of not committing to much of anything.
But even if our relationship churn rate is higher than


S previous generations, I'm not con-
vinced that this is necessarily a bad
thing. What could be read as non-
commitment could just as easily be
interpreted as an unwillingness to
waste each other's time.
Joe Dellosa This higher chum rate indicates
letters@alligator org that we're meeting, dating and hook-
ing up whatever that means -
with more people, and that indicates we have more oppor-
tunities to hurt each other.
A cold truth of modern-day relationships is that we're
all probably a little bit damaged. Most everyone has dealt
with significant others, awful breakups and a night of self-
medicating with buffalo wings and Chunky Monkey while
mournfully watching "Garden State." (It's a better idea in
theory than in practice.)
And I'm fully cognizant of the fact that the girl with
whom I'll wind up will probably have had her heart broken
several times before she meets me. But I also know that I'd
really appreciate it if the folks she runs into before me treat
her heart with a little gentleness and a little courtesy so that
she's not too jaded or closed to the idea of love when I meet
her. Knowing that is more than enough reason for me to try
to return the favor when I can. That's the responsibility that
comes with our high relationship churn rate, and it's one to
which I think we're all beholden.
Or, to put it another way: For any person with whom
we're in a relationship, their heart might not ultimately be
ours, but it's a safe bet that whomever it does belong to
would probably like it if it weren't all fucked up and shit.
So let's take care of it while we've got it.

Tuesday.

Letters to the Editor
Kanye's comments break record of idiocy
I have to admit, I usually hate everything
on MTV and refuse to watch it, but when I got
on Facebook and saw no less than 700 statuses
along the lines of "Kanye West at the VMAs
- what a terrible person!" it was of the utmost
importance that I find the video online.
In my opinion, it wasn't Kanye's comments
(which set the bar for idiocy in the way Mi-
chael Phelps breaks his own records at swim
competitions) that were surprising, it was the
fact that Taylor Swift didn't take the chance to
ask him whether or not he liked fish sticks.

Elite Republicans don't make headlines
All right, Mr. Matthew Christ, you have
my attention. In your article, "Republicans
lack intellectual figures," you gave me an op-
portunity to voice my opinion.
In your column, you quoted Winston
Churchill, referring to the knowledge of the
average voter. Not a bad point. Allow me to
further this point by mentioning the past two
presidents America elected, George W. Bush
and Barack Obama. The former was elected
based on moral governing (a very bad idea).
The latter was elected based on "change" from
mostly perceived and propagated by the
slanted media incompetence and injustice
perpetrated by the former. Obama won the
election despite clearly lacking a viable plan to
accomplish this "change."
That point being made, let me state that 53
percent of American voters voted for Obama.
Moving on where are the intellectual


Republicans? We are here; we just don't get
attention. We use logic and reason to form
our opinions and arguments instead of emo-
tions. The left should try this sometime. In ad-
dition, we get shouted down often by those
who claim they are proponents of free speech.
As you know, this doesn't make headlines like
saying,"police acted stupidly." Ever heard
of the saying, "the squeaky wheel gets the
grease"? We don't have time to be squeaky
because we're too busy working hard and em-
bracing individual responsibility.
We are the productive members of society
who so often get overlooked because we're not
protesting on the comer and we're not asking
for handouts.

Story ignores Muslim perspective
I was outraged to read Monday's story,
"Demonstrators gather to protest Islam on
Sept. 11," not solely due to the protesters' com-
plete intolerance of other religions and incred-
ibly hateful message, but also because of the
way the Alligator reported the story.
In this article, which somehow merited an
entire half-page, never once cites the Islamic
community's reaction to this demonstration of
hate, nor does it include a single quote from a
Muslim person, a mosque official or any other
person besides the ignorant protesters. The ar-
ticle never mentions how many Muslims lost
their lives on Sept. 11 nor how many Muslims
were the victims of hate crimes following Sept.
11 due to the actions of ignorant and intolerant
followers of the "Islam is of the Devil" credo.


As a newspaper, it is not only your respon-
sibility to decide which stories you publish and
how much importance to give them, it is also
your responsibility to fairly and objectively
represent the main issues of the stories as well.
This story served only to disseminate more ig-
norant, intolerant and hateful messages from
a group that spews racism and prejudice and
hides behind their right to free speech.

Bright Futures needs higher standards
I would like to defend Kyle Robisch and
his column last week regarding Bright Fu-
tures scholarships. It seems Sarah Maloney is
nitpicking the literal meanings of his words.
Anyone deserving a need-based scholarship is
required to have a certain GPA and SAT score.
That is supposed to be the point of a scholar-
ship to give an incentive to be a well-edu-
cated student. What's the point in receiving a
scholarship to attend the university because I
can't afford it if I fail every single class I take?
So cheers to you, Kyle, for making this point.
As for the students who think Bright Fu-
tures should pay for classes they drop: If a stu-
dent takes a class and drops, he or she should
pay for it. The purpose of Bright Futures is to
pay for your education, not to pay for your
education exploration.
As a last note, I would like to point out
that if you work two jobs to pay for college,
you qualify for need-based scholarships. I am
taking out more than $10,000 worth of loans in
one year to pay for my education. And that is
with 100 percent Bright Futures. It is rent, food


and books that hurt our wallets, not tuition. As
much as many of you don't want to believe it,
our tuition is cheap and we are lucky.
Chris Moody
3EG



Most scholarships already need-based
I know the Florida Bright Futures Scholar-
ship Program is flawed, but under no circum-
stances should it become an entirely need-
based program. What Kyle Robisch fails to
realize is that basically all of the scholarships
available for Florida students are need-based.
I worked extremely hard in high school, and it
paid off in the form of an extremely high SAT
score, a 4.3 GPA, passing five out of six AP ex-
ams and becoming a sports captain. However,
when it came to scholarships, I received a mea-
sly $500 after applying for about 20. The vast
majority of scholarships have a need-based
component. I don't see how my parent's salary
has anything to do with how much I achieved
in high school. If we make everything need-
based, it will discourage students from doing
well in school and push them to attend schools
that are less scholastically renowned.
Had I not gotten 100 percent Florida
Brights, I probably would have ended up at
Florida State University or the University of
Central Florida, because they offer thousands
of dollars to well qualified students. The state
should make it more difficult for students
to receive 75 percent, not punish those who
worked hard and deserve to be rewarded.

Gators use Joker package to maximize team speed

F By MIKE McCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alllgator org
Florida's 3-3-5 defense couldn't be more aptly named.
Like the playing card it derives its name from, the Joker
.. package isn't one of the most common defensive forma-
_w tions, but it can wreak havoc on opposing offenses and al-
ways has the potential to create a big play.
The biggest difference is the Gators are always holding
the wild card, and their speed and versatility allow them to
play it at any time.
"It's more fun because you can make more plays, espe-
'" ""ciallywhenyou're rushing them," linebacker Ryan Stamper
said. "We cover really well, and when they
throw the ball, it gives us a better chance to
make interceptions. It seems like we make
more plays when we're in that package,
Football and that's why I love it so much."
That held true in Saturday's 56-6 win
against Troy, when Florida's defense
mostly operated from the Joker package. The results were
promising: three turnovers, three sacks and just 71 yards
allowed in the first half.
The 3-3-5 plays perfectly to the Gators' strengths. It
keeps all three talented safeties Ahmad Black, Major
Wright and Will Hill on the field, increases the depth
of the defensive line and showcases the athletic ability of
the defensive backs and linebackers, as they can blitz the
quarterback or drop into coverage.
Defensive end Carlos Dunlap is used for his pass-
....... : rushing skills and his wingspan, as his 6-foot-6, 290-pound
Pit. :~_: ..frame is helpful in pass coverage as well.
Matt Tripp / Alligator Staff There's a lot of movement before the snap, which makes
Junior Justin Trattou (94) lined up at nose tackle in UF's 3-3-5 Joker formation during Florida's 56-6 win over Troy on it tough to tell where the pressure will come from.
Saturday. The "Joker" package puts a trio of defensive ends and safeties on the field. SEE JOKER, PAGE 15


Saturday full of unpredictability


You know what I love most about
college football? The fact that the
season never shakes out the way we
think it will.
Of the top 10 teams in the AP preseason
poll, three have lost that status within the
season's opening two weeks Adios
Oklahoma, we hardly knew you Oklaho-
ma State and you almost fooled us Virginia
Tech.
That could certainly be an indictment
on preseason polls, but I'd rather express
my love for the parity in college football,
which seems to be in full bloom again.
Florida State nearly lost to Jacksonville
State (home to former Florida defensive
tackle Torrey Davis and former LSU quar-
terback Ryan) from the Football Champi-
onship Subdivision. Missouri fought to
hold off Bowling Green, and Maryland


k needed a field goal
in overtime to edge

Madison, which en-
\_ tered the game 0-9

since 1990.
Phil on the Hillsince 190.
pkegler@alligator org If parity had a
partner in crime, it
would be injury.
Oklahoma will be without quarterback
Sam Bradford for several weeks and has
lost tight end Jermaine Gresham for the
rest of the season, a heartbreaking turn of
events for Sooners fans.
Oklahoma State climbed into the Top 5
just in time to fall at home against Confer-
ence USA foe Houston, and to top it off the
Cowboys will likely be without the services

UF FOOTBALL

Moody not out of picture


By MIKE McCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alligator org

A year ago, Emmanuel Moody's career
at Florida was headed in the right direc-
tion.
Moody was named the Gators' start-
ing running back against Tennessee last
season, and he finished with a game-high
55 yards on nine carries. But an ankle in-
jury soon after caused him to miss three
games, and Chris Rainey and Jeff Demps
combined for 487 yards and four touch-
downs in his absence.
Moody has never regained the starting
role, and he tallied just one carry a fum-
ble last week against Troy. Despite ap-
parently benching Moody for the fumble,
UF coach Urban Meyer says he still plans
to play the redshirt junior as the season
goes on.
"When you put your mind into some-
one whose whole world is carrying the
football and playing at Florida, then it
goes: injury, fumble, this and this," Meyer


said. "I certainly have not lost confidence
in him, we just have to get him right."

INJURY UPDATE: Meyer said defensive
tackle Lawrence Marsh (ankle) is prob-
able for this weekend's game against
Tennessee, and he also expects receiver
Deonte Thompson
(hamstring) to play,
though he may miss a
few days of practice.

TEBOW TAKES HONOR:
Quarterback Tim
Tebow was named
Moody Southeastern Con-
ference Offensive Player of the Week
on Monday. The senior completed 15
of 24 passes for 237 yards and four
touchdowns and added 71 yards and
a touchdown running. He is second in
the nation in passing efficiency (197.95)
behind Arkansas' Ryan Mallett (210.25).


EThe Mike Vick experiment could be more than a cute Wildcat option if Dono-
van McNabb misses any significant time with a broken rib. If you're an Eagles
fan, are you super excited or deathly afraid? ... Former UF receiver Louis Murphy
caught the first TD of his career just before halftime of Monday night's game
regardless of what that hopefully now-jobless official thought he saw on replay.


I POLLRS ULTS


SThe UF-Kentucky game will kick-
off at 6 p.m. on Sept. 26 and will be
televised on ESPN2. Florida's last
appearance on ESPN2 was a 42-14
victory over Vanderbilt on Nov. 8.

of 2008's Big 12 rushing leader, Kendall
Hunter, due to a right leg injury. Anoth-
er set of fans sent into despair.
One fan base's hopelessness, how-
ever, is another team's opportunity.
Could BYU, currently ranked No. 9
in the coaches' poll, be the first school
from outside an automatic-qualifier
conference to finish in the Top 5 of the
BCS Standings?
With home games still to play
against Florida State, TCU and Utah, I
say absolutely. But there's still no way
an undefeated BYU makes it into the
BCS National Championship Game in
Pasadena unless Florida or Texas drop
a game.
The No. 1 Gators and No. 2 Long-
horns aren't impenetrable to injury.
Any given play could cause Florida
or Texas fans to gasp and question the
heavens. After all, Oklahoma's darling
quarterback probably didn't return to
Norman to have his national title hopes
dashed on a single hit, and Tim Tebow
and Colt McCoy don't exactly shy away
from contact when they roll out of the
pocket.
Here in Gainesville, fans should wor-
ry about others in addition to Tebow. At
least No. 15 has a backup the Gators


3-3-5 formation wreaks havoc on opponents passing games but vu

JOKER, from page 14


"We really disguise a lot," de-
fensive line coach Dan McCamey
said. "Sometimes you'll see two
guys with their hands on the line of
scrimmage with nine guys stand-
ing, and they're moving around. We
talk about being moving targets and
bringing them from all areas and dif-
ferent places. There's a rhyme and a
reason for everything we do."
The Joker package causes chaos,
the perfect environment for the
Gators' opportunistic defense. The
unit was third in the nation in take-
aways last season, and its streak of
14-straight games with an intercep-
tion leads the nation (the next closest
teams are tied at nine).
Turnovers were a huge benefit
for UF last year, and the Joker pack-
age will help ensure that trend con-
tinues. But it does have its faults.


LB MLB LB

Because of the three-man line
and increased movement of the
linebackers, the formation can be


vulnerable against a good rushing in the BCS Championship Game,
game. The Gators used it heavily but when Tennessee rolls into town
against Oklahoma's passing attack Saturday, it'll likely be used only in


don't even bother listing a reserve tight
end on their depth chart, making Aaron
Hemandez one of the most irreplace-
able members of the team.
There isn't exactly the usual stable
of wide receivers, either. Only Riley
Cooper (10 catches for 187 yards in two
games) and Deonte Thompson (2 TDs
against Troy) have proven themselves
so far, with Hemandez second on the
team in receptions.
Redshirt senior David Nelson has
only three catches for 13 yards, and I
can't see Brandon James being more
than an occasional option, despite his
over-the-shoulder TD catch Saturday.
Injury isn't the only thing that can
derail games or change a season's path.
How about the weather?
It seems like a silly thought, until
you remember that the Gators' offense
had six fumbles Saturday and looked
completely pathetic in the rain during
the first quarter against Troy.
You just never know.
So I look forward to watching BYU
put its national title game hopes on the
line each week, starting with Saturday's
home contest against Florida State.
Keep winning, and a fan base from
Provo, Utah, can keep dreaming one
week at a time. It might never happen,
but college football continues to show
nothing is certain.


rlnerable to run

passing situations.
"It's no secret what [the Volun-
teers] are going to do," UF coach Ur-
ban Meyer said. "They're going to
come in with two really good backs
and try to pound us and come after
us running the ball.
"I don't believe they're going to
come in and try to wing it all over
the place to try and win the game.
We have good cover guys, but we
have to stop the run. If it starts to be
a downhill game, we have a prob-
lem."
But if the Gators can stop the
Volunteers' ground game, the Joker
package will be especially useful
on third downs. UT has an inexpe-
rienced receiving corps and a quar-
terback, Jonathan Crompton, who
managed more touchdowns than in-
terceptions just twice last season and
threw three picks last week against
UCLA.

By KATHERINE BEIN Alligator Writer kbein@alligato r org An 82-year-old woman was taken to Shands at UF after a crash involving an RTS bus Monday. Ann Ruffin was the only person injured in the crash, according to Gainesville Police Sgt. Joe Raulerson. Raulerson said the bus driver and the few passengers were not hurt in the crash, which happened at Northwest 23rd Street and West University Avenue at about 2 p.m. He said Ruffin was driving her 2008 Cadillac eastbound on University Avenue and tried to turn left onto Northwest 23rd Street when the RTS bus crashed into her passenger side. The impact caused major damage to the front and side of Ruffin's car, shattered the windows and set off the air bags, Raulerson said. Ruffin's injuries were serious but not lifethreatening, said GPD spokesman Keith Kameg. Investigators are trying to determine who was at fault, he added. By THOMAS STEWART Alligator Staff Writer tstewa rt@alligator org UF announced Monday that a privacy breach released 25 Social Security numbers. The numbers are believed to belong to trainers who worked with the Florida Traffic and Bicycle Safety Education program in 2006. Officials aren't sure if anyone accessed the information, but it was found in an unprotected file last month during a routine security check, said UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes. "We are not aware of anyone who has used it for fraudulent purposes," she said. The file also contained the names of 34 people, but the names didn't match up with the Social Security numbers, she said. Junior Justin Trattou (94) slid inside Saturday against Tray as part of UJFs 3-3-5 defense. The Gators will use the Joker package against Tennessee this weekend in passing situations. See Story, Page 14. Kelly McLarnon / Alligator Ann Ruffin, 82, was taken to Shands at UF after her Cadillac (pictured) was hit by an RTS bus while making a left turn onto Northwest 23rd Street from West University Avenue on Monday. I LOCAL Man takes tape, not nap By PATRICK ANNESTY Alligator Writer pannesty@alligator org Richard D. Humphrey went to jail over a roll of electrical tape and a bottle of hot sauce that police say he took from a houseboat. At about 4:30 a.m. Monday, a witness reported seeing Humphrey enter a houseboat at 3020 N Main St., where it was parked at Jim Walker Auto Sales, according to a police report. The witness said Humphrey hid inside the houseboat when he noticed he was being watched. Gainesville Police Department officer Edward Ratliff found Humphrey on the 3900 block of North Main Street. When confronted, Humphrey said he entered the houseboat "to take a nap." In Humphrey's front right pocket Ratliff found a bottle of hot sauce worth $1, and in his back left pocket a roll of electrical tape worth $3. Humphrey admitted to stealing both items, police said. Humphrey, 47, of 542 NE Seventh Ave., was charged with unarmed burglary, a felony, and petit theft, a misdemeanor. He was booked at the Alachua County Jail at 6:03 a.m. Monday. GPD spokesman Lt. Keith Kameg said there was no indication why Humphrey took the hot sauce and tape.

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2009 U ALLIGATOR, 3 New dean reflects on Gator Engineering No engineer is an island. The most successful engineers immerse themselves in the lives of the people around them, finding ways to make life better for everyone. They Cammy Abernathy spend their careers in the service of others, solving practical problems and meeting tangible needs. Their passion for people motivates them to do the unexpected, attempt the risky and attain the impossible. The best engineers -the ones truly destined to make a difference -reflexively reach beyond cultural, temporal and disciplinary boundaries. They understand that isolationism is a death sentence to creativity, but embracing differences cultivates innovation. At the University of Florida College of Engineering, this is the kind of culture we encourage, and our students are heavily recruited as a result. It also allows us to create new interdisciplinary programs attacking problems from a variety of perspectives. Because of our people and our broad array of research initiatives, our college has the opportunity to be a leader in this new approach to addressing issues in energy, health care, sustainable infrastructure and the environment, information technology, nanotechnology, and a myriad of other questions facing society. It's an exciting time to be a new dean of engineering -especially Gator Engineering. Cammy Abernathy Dean, College ofEngineering Program explores Constitution, immigration Do undocumented immigrants have certain protections under the U.S. Constitution? Where, and under what historical context, do our country's constitutional ideals and practical immigration policies intersect? Explore these and other fascinating questions regarding U.S. immigration policy during the University of Florida Constitution Day Program, scheduled for 10:30 a.m. to noon, Sept. 17, in Room 282 of the Reitz Student Union.

U UNIVE RSITY of TeFFLORIDA The Foundation for The Gator Nation A Shrimp School participant gives some shrimp a sniff test. UF Shrimp School has been held as far Something's fishy about away as Nicaragua and Ecuador. this international class With 90 percent of shrimp being imported to the U.S., American consumers can thank the University of Florida for keeping their favorite seafood safe, fresh and tasty. UF's Shrimp School is an annual training program to educate shrimp processors and regulators from all over the world. The three-day training program, organized by Steven Orwell of the Aquatic Foods Products Lab at UF, has been held each summer since 1995. "The class is already full for next year," said Laura Garrido, Shrimp School coordinator. "I don't have to advertise anymore." The popularity of Shrimp School has spread mostly by word-of-mouth, and students are enrolled on a first-come basis. While the ideal class size is 25 students, recent years' classes have been capped at 50 students. Attendees often include shrimp suppliers and buyers, plant managers, representatives from private food labs, vice presidents of quality control and assurance, and chefs. Some of this year's attendees included representatives from supermarkets, research labs and seafood processors and distributors. Attendees receive a certificate for completing the course. "I found Shrimp School to be a very educational experience in many aspects," said Casey Marion, a seafood specialist at the Jacksonville-based Beaver Street Fisheries, which imports frozen seafood from more than 50 countries. The course is taught by UF faculty and U.S. Food and Drug Administration representatives. "We bring the world experts (to teach the class)," Garrido said. Shrimp School is taught in a classroom, as well as a lab, to give the students hands-on experience. In the lab, students perform a sensory evaluation to determine how shrimp should look, feel, taste and smell. "Each day we had the opportunity to work with FDA sensory experts who took us on a calibration process of smelling different odor standards that represent the freshest of quality to the absolute worst smelling odors you can think of," Marion said.

4, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2009 Student's site sells overstock books at 'bailout' prices THE SITE OFFERS MORE THAN 21,000 TITLES. By ANNIE BOGGS Alligator Contributing Writer Andrew Koumi took his business skills from the classroom to the real world with the launch of recessionbased Web site Bookbama.com. In order to help students struggling with their finances, the site promises to sell students "bargain books at bailout brices." Koumi, a UF senior, purchases books from publishers who print too many copies and sells them for less than half of the original cost. He said a $15 book can sell for as little as $2 on his Web site, adding he offers a variety of books grouped into categories ranging from "Body, Mind & Spirit" to "Literary Criticism." Koumi came up with the idea for his business after Local researching the cost News of opening a textbook store. Although he originally operated his business out of his apartment closet, he had to relocate his inventory to two warehouses in St. Petersburg, Fla., and New Jersey. "(It) kept getting bigger and bigger," he said. Updated each day, the inventory is now at more than 21,000 books. Koumi said students looking for even cheaper books should check out bargain book bailouts, a weekly promotion in which he makes 25 random book titles free. Customers must pay shipping and handling and can order up to 100 free books. Koumi said the promotion has worked because most customers order regularly priced books along with their free ones. Customers are not simply purchasing one or two books as they do from major bookstores either. "Most of my customers order around 15 titles," Koumi said. GAINESVILLE CITY COMMISSION Commissioners discuss improvements for transportation By DALIA SABBAGH Alligator Writer The Gainesville City Commission has a desire named streetcar. City commissioners voiced ideas like making the area more pedestrianand bicycle-friendly, encouraging more bus use and an creating an electric streetcar system at their Monday workshop. Regional Transit System has jumped from about 1 million passengers in 2000 to about 9 million this year, said Commissioner Jack Donovan. "We want to provide the best transportation we can, meaning clean and reliable," Donovan said, adding that he believes it's possible to restructure University Avenue without affecting traffic. Other ideas included a Bus Rapid Transit, which would operate like a train system with a prepaid fare, and strengthening the connection between UF and downtown. One goal of the workshop was to figure out whether the project would qualify for federal funding, Donovan said. According to the city planning staff, the plan would not cost more than $20 million, would not have a regional impact and would Donovan not be completed within three years of receiving the grant -all of which are necessary to qualify for stimulus funds. While the broader plan, including the BRT and electric streetcar systems, would far exceed $20 million, the more immediate goal of landscaping and widening sidewalks and bicycle lanes would not meet the $20-million minimum. Donovan said the project may not be possible for at least five years. But he said smaller steps may still be an option. The development of a lane dedicated to public transportation would ignite development downtown and help developers feel safer investing in downtown communities. "When you have increased population downtown, businesses find it a good place to locate," he said. "It really depends on federal funding, but we'll be paying close attention to this in the next few years."

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2009 U ALLIGATOR, 5 STATE Police follow through with seat belt enforcement By DEREK GILLIAM Alligator Contributing Writer Local enforcement of Florida's June seat belt law is no joke. During the first month of enforcement, the Gainesville Police Department issued 24.5 percent more tickets than it did in July 2008, and 32.5 percent more tickets were given this August than in August 2008. Before the law went into effect, people could only be cited for not wearing seat belts if they were pulled over for another offense. Now, it's a primary offense -officers can pull over a car if the driver or passenger is not wearing a seat belt. In Alachua County, the fine for not wearing a seat belt is $104. Thomas Baker, an aerospace engineering senior, said he thinks the law is an attempt to raise revenue in a bad economy. "The police department is more like a bill collector than a law enforcer," Baker said. Lauren Profis, a UF freshman, said she could see why it would be difficult for law enforcement to effectively enforce seat belt violations and has some concerns about abuse. "I don't know how a police officer could identify a violation while the car is moving," Profis said. But GPD Cpl. Michael West said that at the speeds cars travel around Gainesville, it is not difficult to detect a violation. He added that officers must be certain before they pull someone over for a seat belt violation. Failure to wear a seat belt contributes to more fatalities than any other single traffic safety-related behavior. About 63 percent of people killed in automobile accidents were not wearing seat belts at the time of their accidents, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Amy Meyer, a UF sophomore, said the increased enforcement is a good sign and could end up saving lives. "I have personally known two friends who died in car crashes," Meyer said. "They probably would have survived if they had been wearing their seat belts." Seat Belt Violations July 2008 -204 July 2009 -254 August 2008 -83 August 2009 -110 Battle continues over campus radio station content THE NEW FORMAT COULD PRODUCE MORE JOBS. BY CAROLYN TILLO Alligator Writer Demonstrators held signs and played cellos last week to show their opposition to WUFT-FM's change from classical music to news and public affairs. The change, which occurred in August, has also received positive feedback from people who enjoy the news programs, said Paul Gordon, interim executive director of UF's Division of Multimedia Properties. Gordon said the station plans to add more local news coverage. The increase in local coverage could lead to more On volunteer and paid Campus positions at the station for students, he said. But Sue Yelton, who organized the protest group, said she misses the classical, folk, jazz and blues music the WUFT-FM's old format offered. The classical music now offered by the station's HD2 radio channel does not replace the old mix, she said. "I'm not going to tear out my sound stereo system in my car to put in an HD radio that I don't know will work," she said. "We want back what we had or something very similar." However, Gordon said it is difficult to get people to agree with the format change when it is still so new, and the transition is going to take time. "It's a matter of really trying to expand, but it's a crawl, walk, run process," he said.

6, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2009 Jail Break Program gives inmates opportunity to grow hen we think of jailhouses, we are more inclined to think of "The Shawshank Redemption" than "Julie and Julia." However, one Florida minimum-security prison is allowing inmates to put their culinary and horticultural skills to the test. The Hillsborough County Jail, located in Tampa, allows inmates to use peppers grown in its horticulture program to produce hot sauces -with names like "Original," "No Escape," "Smoke" and the yet-to-be-released "Misdemeanor." The sauces are sold at the jail and online, and all proceeds go to maintain the program. We think this is an effective program because it uses no taxpayer money, allows inmates a bit of self-expression and leaves them with a certificate in vocational horticulture once they're out of the slammer. Plus, the TV spots for the sauces are smokin'. Because Florida is full of landscaping companies, this program presents an employment opportunity for inmates upon release. And because the certificate doesn't mention that it was earned inside of a prison, it gives them a leg up in becoming productive, working members of society. For combining the redemptive qualities of cooking, growing produce and creating a product with the concept that Andy Dufresne clung to in "Shawshank" -hope -we would like to commend Hillsborough County Jail for its innovative program. If only the Gainesville man arrested for stealing barbeque sauce Monday morning was arrested for stealing Jailhouse hot sauce, we could understand. Heck, we'd commit a felony to know what "Misdemeanor" tastes like, too. Burger King 68-year-old man was honored for 50 years of service at the same Missouri McDonald's last week. For spending a lifetime under the golden arches, Leonard Rhomberg received a McFlurry of praise from his co-workers, who gave him a cake, gift cards (to McDonald's) and a St. Louis Cardinals jersey with his name across the back. Things like this keep us awake at night. Deciding our futures is tough. Picturing ourselves as fry-guys (or girls) for 50 years is McFrightening. However, it seems like Rhomberg might have figured out a way to avoid any sort of self-doubt by McLovin' it. What kind of person does it take to work at the same job, without upward mobility, for 50 years? Is his tenure a tribute to his dedication and loyalty, or is it something that implies a serious lack of ambition? Being in or around a McDonald's a few times a year is almost too much for us, but that's not the point. The point is that Rhomberg proves it is possible to be content by knowing where you belong. The Rhomberg's photo shows a smiling man. We would like to take his story as an example of the fact that happiness doesn't necessarily come from constantly searching for validation. Sometimes it comes in the form of a Happy Meal. Next time you're stressed about your future, remind yourself that happiness can come from dedication and sticking to what you know, even if it is flipping burgers five days a week. 0 the independent florida alligator Kristin Bjornsen Allie Conti EDITOR OPINIONS EDITOR Brian Kelley Jennifer Jenkins MANAGING EDITORS The Alligator encourages comments from readers Letters to the editor should not exceed 150 words (about one etter-sized page) They mustbe typed, double-spaced and must include the author's name, classification and phone number Names will be withheld if the writer shows just cause We reserve the right to edit for length, grammar, styie and iibei Send letters to ietters@aiiigatororg, bring them to 1105W University A e, or send them to PO Box 14257, GainesviIle, FL 32604-2257Columns of about 450 words about original topics and editorial cartoons are also welcome Questions?

(U H AV\E I T tLL \A1 v IN NG K F A Cum SAF A WEST AZC Golden rule a pplies to relationships had a friend who was really into returning lost things to their owners. One of my more resonant memories of this is when she found a teddy bear on the sidewalk. The bear was in pretty decent condition, albeit a little dirty, and it had a small, custom-made, inscribed locket around its neck. So my friend picked up the teddy bear and took it home. She did some meticulous do-it-yourself dry cleaning on the bear, shined up the locket, and hung up some "Found: One Teddy Bear" fliers near where she found it. She always handled the teddy bear carefully, washing her hands before touching it and placing it in a large Ziploc bag to keep it from getting dirty. At one point, her mom asked her why she was going through all this trouble for a stranger's lost stuffed animal. My friend shrugged and said, "It may not be mine, but I bet whomever it does belong to would probably like it if it weren't all fucked up and shit. So I'll take care of it while I've got it." And I've always thought that's some of the best 21stcentury relationship advice I've ever heard. I'll explain. Our generation seems to get a lot of flak for the transience of our relationships, as if we consider commitment obsolete. I guess it's not an entirely indefensible argument. The ease, for instance, with which we change our Facebook relationship statuses should give us pause. In fact, there's a relationship status that codifies non-commitment commitment -the strangely equivocal "It's Complicated." And if nothing else, think of the phrase "hook up" -an intentionally cryptic verb that could mean anything from coffee-having to laid-getting with an ambiguity that serves the purpose of not committing to much of anything. But even if our relationship churn rate is higher than previous generations, I'm not convinced that this is necessarily a bad thing. What could be read as noncommitment could just as easily be interpreted as an unwillingness to waste each other's time. Joe Dellosa This higher churn rate indicates letters@alligator org that we're meeting, dating and hooking up -whatever that means with more people, and that indicates we have more opportunities to hurt each other. A cold truth of modern-day relationships is that we're all probably a little bit damaged. Most everyone has dealt with significant others, awful breakups and a night of selfmedicating with buffalo wings and Chunky Monkey while mournfully watching "Garden State." (It's a better idea in theory than in practice.) And I'm fully cognizant of the fact that the girl with whom I'll wind up will probably have had her heart broken several times before she meets me. But I also know that I'd really appreciate it if the folks she runs into before me treat her heart with a little gentleness and a little courtesy so that she's not too jaded or closed to the idea of love when I meet her. Knowing that is more than enough reason for me to try to return the favor when I can. That's the responsibility that comes with our high relationship churn rate, and it's one to which I think we're all beholden. Or, to put it another way: For any person with whom we're in a relationship, their heart might not ultimately be ours, but it's a safe bet that whomever it does belong to would probably like it if it weren't all fucked up and shit. So let's take care of it while we've got it. Joe Dellosa is an advertising senior. His column appears on Tuesday. The views expressed here are not necessarily those of the Alligator.

M CALLIN4% W -_,o INTO VWPLY, AT U R-W! 0 0 ( Letters to the Editor Kanye's comments break record of idiocy I have to admit, I usually hate everything on MTV and refuse to watch it, but when I got on Facebook and saw no less than 700 statuses along the lines of "Kanye West at the VMAs -what a terrible person!" it was of the utmost importance that I find the video online. In my opinion, it wasn't Kanye's comments (which set the bar for idiocy in the way Michael Phelps breaks his own records at swim competitions) that were surprising, it was the fact that Taylor Swift didn't take the chance to ask him whether or not he liked fish sticks. Samuel Thomas 3LS Elite Republicans don't make headlines All right, Mr. Matthew Christ, you have my attention. In your article, "Republicans lack intellectual figures," you gave me an opportunity to voice my opinion. In your column, you quoted Winston Churchill, referring to the knowledge of the average voter. Not a bad point. Allow me to further this point by mentioning the past two presidents America elected, George W. Bush and Barack Obama. The former was elected based on moral governing (a very bad idea). The latter was elected based on "change" from mostly perceived -and propagated by the slanted media -incompetence and injustice perpetrated by the former. Obama won the election despite clearly lacking a viable plan to accomplish this "change." That point being made, let me state that 53 percent of American voters voted for Obama. Moving on -where are the intellectual Republicans? We are here; we just don't get attention. We use logic and reason to form our opinions and arguments instead of emotions. The left should try this sometime. In addition, we get shouted down often by those who claim they are proponents of free speech. As you know, this doesn't make headlines like saying,"police acted stupidly." Ever heard of the saying, "the squeaky wheel gets the grease"? We don't have time to be squeaky because we're too busy working hard and embracing individual responsibility. We are the productive members of society who so often get overlooked because we're not protesting on the corner and we for handouts. Story ignores Muslim perspec I was outraged to read Mo "Demonstrators gather to pro Sept. 11," not solely due to the pr plete intolerance of other religion ibly hateful message, but also b way the Alligator reported the st In this article, which someho entire half-page, never once cit community's reaction to this den hate, nor does it include a single Muslim person, a mosque officia person besides the ignorant prot ticle never mentions how many their lives on Sept. 11 nor how n were the victims of hate crimes fo 11 due to the actions of ignorant followers of the "Islam is of the As a newspaper, it is not only your responsibility to decide which stories you publish and how much importance to give them, it is also your responsibility to fairly and objectively represent the main issues of the stories as well. This story served only to disseminate more ignorant, intolerant and hateful messages from a group that spews racism and prejudice and hides behind their right to free speech. Odyscea Moghimi-Kian 6LS E E E 're not asking Bright Futures needs higher standards I would like to defend Kyle Robisch and Derrick Venne his column last week regarding Bright Fu1BA tures scholarships. It seems Sarah Maloney is nitpicking the literal meanings of his words.

It is rent, food and books that hurt our wallets, not tuition. As much as many of you don't want to believe it, our tuition is cheap and we are lucky. Chris Moody 3EG Most scholarships already need-based I know the Florida Bright Futures Scholarship Program is flawed, but under no circumstances should it become an entirely needbased program. What Kyle Robisch fails to realize is that basically all of the scholarships available for Florida students are need-based. I worked extremely hard in high school, and it paid off in the form of an extremely high SAT score, a 4.3 GPA, passing five out of six AP exams and becoming a sports captain. However, when it came to scholarships, I received a measly $500 after applying for about 20. The vast majority of scholarships have a need-based component. I don't see how my parent's salary has anything to do with how much I achieved in high school. If we make everything needbased, it will discourage students from doing well in school and push them to attend schools that are less scholastically renowned. Had I not gotten 100 percent Florida Brights, I probably would have ended up at Florida State University or the University of Central Florida, because they offer thousands of dollars to well qualified students. The state should make it more difficult for students to receive 75 percent, not punish those who worked hard and deserve to be rewarded.

Sports TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2009 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Gators use Joker package to maximize team speed Matt Tripp / Alligator Staf Junior Justin Trattou (94) lined up at nose tackle in UF's 3-3-5 Joker formation during Florida's 56-6 win over Troy or Saturday. The "Joker" package puts a trio of defensive ends and safeties on the field. Saturdays full of unpredictability You know what I love most about needed a field goa college football? The fact that the in overtime to edg season never shakes out the way we FCS member Jame think it will. Madison, which en Of the top 10 teams in the AP preseason tered the game 0poll, three have lost that status within the Phil Kegler against FBS team season's opening two weeks -Adios Phil on the Hill since 1990. Oklahoma, we hardly knew you Oklahopkegler@a Iligator org If parity had ma State and you almost fooled us Virginia Tech. That could certainly be an indictment on preseason polls, but I'd rather express my love for the parity in college football, which seems to be in full bloom again. Florida State nearly lost to Jacksonville State (home to former Florida defensive tackle Torrey Davis and former LSU quarterback Ryan) from the Football Championship Subdivision. Missouri fought to hold off Bowling Green, and Maryland partner in crime, it would be injury. Oklahoma will be without quarterback Sam Bradford for several weeks and has lost tight end Jermaine Gresham for the rest of the season, a heartbreaking turn of events for Sooners fans. Oklahoma State climbed into the Top 5 just in time to fall at home against Conference USA foe Houston, and to top it off the Cowboys will likelybe without the services SEE PHIL, PAGE 15 UF FOOTBALL Moody not out of picture By MIKE McCALL Alligator Staff Writer mmccall@a Iligator org A year ago, Emmanuel Moody's career at Florida was headed in the right direction. Moody was named the Gators' starting running back against Tennessee last season, and he finished with a game-high 55 yards on nine carries. But an ankle injury soon after caused him to miss three games, and Chris Rainey and Jeff Demps combined for 487 yards and four touchdowns in his absence. Moody has never regained the starting role, and he tallied just one carry -a fumble -last week against Troy. Despite apparently benching Moody for the fumble, UF coach Urban Meyer says he still plans to play the redshirt junior as the season goes on. "When you put your mind into someone whose whole world is carrying the football and playing at Florida, then it goes: injury, fumble, this and this," Meyer said. "I certainly have not lost confidence inhim, we just have to get him right." INJURY UPDATE: Meyer said defensive tackle Lawrence Marsh (ankle) is probable for this weekend's game against Tennessee and he also expects receiver Deonte Thompson (hamstring) to play, though he may miss a few days of practice. TEBOW TAKES HONOR: Quarterback Tim Tebow was named Moody Southeastern Conference Offensive Player of the Week on Monday. The senior completed 15 of 24 passes for 237 yards and four touchdowns and added 71 yards and a touchdown running. He is second in the nation in passing efficiency (197.95) behind Arkansas' Ryan Mallett (210.25). TEEING OFF WITH KYLE MAISTR E The Mike Vick experiment could be more than a cute Wildcat option if Donovan McNabb misses any significant time with a broken rib. If you're an Eagles fan, are you super excited or deathly afraid? .Former UF receiver Louis Murphy caught the first TD of his career just before halftime of Monday night's game regardless of what that hopefully now-jobless official thought he saw on replay. KENTUCKY GAME TIME SET E The UF-Kentucky game will kickoff at 6 p.m. on Sept. 26 and will be televised on ESPN2. Florida's last appearance on ESPN2 was a 42-14 victory over Vanderbilt on Nov. 8. Previous question: Which column did you agree with more in the Jumpball about college football fans? Percent (Votes) Beg to DiFer 63% (33) Kyle Points 37% (19) 52 TOTAL VOTES _J POLL RESULTS I e s 9 s a By MIKE McCALL Alligator Staff Writer mmccall@alligator org Florida's 3-3-5 defense couldn't be more aptly named. Like the playing card it derives its name from, the Joker package isn't one of the most common defensive formations, but it can wreak havoc on opposing offenses and always has the potential to create a big play. The biggest difference is the Gators are always holding the wild card, and their speed and versatility allow them to play it at any time. "It's more fun because you can make more plays, especiallywhenyou're rushing them," linebacker Ryan Stamper said. "We cover really well, and when they throw the ball, it gives us a better chance to make interceptions. It seems like we make more plays when we're in that package, and that's why I love it so much." Football That held true in Saturday's 56-6 win against Troy, when Florida's defense mostly operated from the Joker package. The results were promising: three turnovers, three sacks and just 71 yards allowed in the first half. The 3-3-5 plays perfectly to the Gators' strengths. It keeps all three talented safeties -Ahmad Black, Major Wright and Will Hill -on the field, increases the depth of the defensive line and showcases the athletic ability of the defensive backs and linebackers, as they can blitz the quarterback or drop into coverage. Defensive end Carlos Dunlap is used for his passrushing skills and his wingspan, as his 6-foot-6, 290-pound frame is helpful in pass coverage as well. There's a lot of movement before the snap, which makes it tough to tell where the pressure will come from. SEE JOKER, PAGE 15 a

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2009 U ALLIGATOR, 15 Jaguas DE Havmard *iII rin% eavon wth broken lep "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" DWO4 Pt )( r() q'd elm% F rd1tqf I PHIL, from page 14 of 2008's Big 12 rushing leader, Kendall Hunter, due to a right leg injury. Another set of fans sent into despair. One fan base's hopelessness, however, is another team's opportunity. Could BYU, currently ranked No. 9 in the coaches' poll, be the first school from outside an automatic-qualifier conference to finish in the Top 5 of the BCS Standings? With home games still to play against Florida State, TCU and Utah, I say absolutely. But there's still no way an undefeated BYU makes it into the BCS National Championship Game in Pasadena unless Florida or Texas drop a game. The No. 1 Gators and No. 2 Longhorns aren't impenetrable to injury. Any given play could cause Florida or Texas fans to gasp and question the heavens. After all, Oklahoma's darling quarterback probably didn't return to Norman to have his national title hopes dashed on a single hit, and Tim Tebow and Colt McCoy don't exactly shy away from contact when they roll out of the pocket. Here in Gainesville, fans should worry about others in addition to Tebow. At least No. 15 has a backup -the Gators don't even bother listing a reserve tight end on their depth chart, making Aaron Hernandez one of the most irreplaceable members of the team. There isn't exactly the usual stable of wide receivers, either. Only Riley Cooper (10 catches for 187 yards in two games) and Deonte Thompson (2 TDs against Troy) have proven themselves so far, with Hernandez second on the team in receptions. Redshirt senior David Nelson has only three catches for 13 yards, and I can't see Brandon James being more than an occasional option, despite his over-the-shoulder TD catch Saturday. Injury isn't the only thing that can derail games or change a season's path. How about the weather? It seems like a silly thought, until you remember that the Gators' offense had six fumbles Saturday and looked completely pathetic in the rain during the first quarter against Troy. You just never know. So I look forward to watching BYU put its national title game hopes on the line each week, starting with Saturday's home contest against Florida State. Keep winning, and a fan base from Provo, Utah, can keep dreaming one week at a time. It might never happen, but college football continues to show nothing is certain. 3-3-5 formation wreaks havoc on opponents passing games but vulnerable to run JOKER, from page 14 "We really disguise a lot," de_ fensive line coach Dan McCarney said. "Sometimes you'll see two guys with their hands on the line of scrimmage with nine guys standing, and they're moving around. We talk about being moving targets and bringing them from all areas and different places. There's a rhyme and a reason for everything we do." The Joker package causes chaos, the perfect environment for the Gators' opportunistic defense. The unit was third in the nation in takeaways last season, and its streak of 14-straight games with an interception leads the nation (the next closest teams are tied at nine). Turnovers were a huge benefit for UF last year, and the Joker package will help ensure that trend continues. But it does have its faults. Florida's Joker Package Ahmad Black Janoris Jenkins Ryan Stamper DE Will Hill Carlos Dunlap Because of the three-man line and increased movement of the linebackers, the formation can be S M ajor Wright Brandon A.J. Spikes Jones DT DE Jermaine Justin Cunningham Trattou Joe Haden vulnerable against a good rushing in the BCS Championship Game, game. The Gators used it heavily but when Tennessee rolls into town against Oklahoma's passing attack Saturday, it'll likely be used only in passing situations. "It's no secret what [the Volunteers] are going to do," UF coach Urban Meyer said. "They're going to come in with two really good backs and try to pound us and come after us running the ball. "I don't believe they're going to come in and try to wing it all over the place to try and win the game. We have good cover guys, but we have to stop the run. If it starts to be a downhill game, we have a problem." But if the Gators can stop the Volunteers' ground game, the Joker package will be especially useful on third downs. UT has an inexperienced receiving corps and a quarterback, Jonathan Crompton, who managed more touchdowns than interceptions just twice last season and threw three picks last week against UCLA.
