UF ADMINISTRATION

Research funding


ranks 19t

By ALISON SCHWARTZ
Alligator Writer
A rickety economy has not stopped UF
from spending about $584 million on sci-
ence and engineering research in the 2008
fiscal year, earning the university a spot
in the nation's top 20 in terms of research
funding.
Even still, UF looks a little stingy com-
pared to its spending the previous year.
According to the National Science Foun-
dation, UF's spending decreased by about
$9 million from the 2007 fiscal year.
UF is ranked 19th in the nation, accord-
ing to the foundation.
John "Row" Rogacki, director of the UF
Research and Engineering Education Facil-


n US


ity, credits the university's reputation for
the amount of funding it received.
"The university has a very strong repu-
tation, and we work very hard at what we
do, competing for and winning grants and
contracts," Rogacki said. "It really speaks
highly of our people."
Rogacki described the process to receive
funds as cutthroat, often weeding out good
ideas along the way.
"It's a competition," Rogacki said.
"There are more good ideas than there is
money to fund those good ideas."
Rogacki said REEF's current research
agenda includes computation energetic
and computation mechanics, studies that
focus on munition innovation.

Former UF employee


arrested for molesting

A former UF engineering employee
was arrested Sept. 29 after police say he
molested a 9-year-old girl last year.
David Blankenship, 53, was arrested in
Washington County after a warrant was
issued from the state attorney's office, ac-
cording to a release.
On April 15, the victim came to Alachua
police and said Blankenship molested her
in 2008, though she was not able to give
them an exact date, according to the re-
lease.
The girl told police he entered her room,
touched her genitals under her clothes and
penetrated her with his fingers, according


to a police report.
The report did not include the reason
Blankenship was in the girl's room.
Blankenship was charged with lewd
and lascivious molesta-
tion. His bail has been
posted at $100,000, ac-
H &. cording to the release.
Blankenship worked
at UF as a photographer
in the College of Engi-
neering News and Pub-
Blankenship locations office from Sep-
tember 1980 until July
2008, UF spokesman Steve Orlando said.
Orlando had no further comment on
the investigation.

Senators say farewell, welcome newly elected members


By CAROLYN TILLO
Alligator Writer
Senate rocked to a new beat
Tuesday night when new senators
were sworn in and old senators said
goodbye.


Progress Party Sen. Dave Sch-
neider, who represented Rawlings
Hall, left Senate with a bang. He
grabbed a guitar and two musicians
and sang a rendition of "Thank You
for Letting Me Be Myself Again" by
Sly and the Family Stone.
"Guys, as my last meeting, I fig-


ured that making a speech would be
kind of another
Student brick in the
Government wall, dust in the
wind," he said.
Schneider dedicated the song to
his party members and the senators
who voted in favor of the resolution


asking Aramark, UF's food provid-
er, to negotiate wage increases for
Immokalee tomato growers.
Orange & Blue Party Sen. Ben
Cavataro, who represented Hume
Hall, said he did not want to see the
band go.
"I wish they could stay for the


rest of the night so that they could
play people off the stage like the Os-
cars," Cavataro joked.
Cavataro offered advice to new
senators, saying they should be pro-
active and find their niche in Senate.

CORRECTION
It was reported in the Sept. 29
edition of the Alligator that Jo-
seph McCabe was a UF student
senator. While he still officially
held his seat until Tuesday night,
when his term ended, McCabe
withdrew from the university on
Sept. 14, according to the Office
of the University Registrar. The
registrar's office initially provid-
ed incorrect information, listing
McCabe as an enrolled student,
but confirmed Tuesday he had
withdrawn.
An employee in the Student
Government office said McCabe
was able to retain his seat be-
cause no one had notified the of-
fice of his withdrawal.

Fraternity hosts World Series of Spades for charity


* 28 PLAYERS COMPETED
FOR A $100 VISA GIFT
CERTIFICATE.

By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

The Reigning Champions won
the World Series on Tuesday
night.
Twenty-eight players sipped
on smoothies and sodas while
they competed in Phi
On Beta Sigma Frater-
Campus nity Inc.'s World Se-
ries of Spades cards
tournament at Orange & Brew.
The World Series of Spades is
one of seven events Phi Beta Sig-
ma Inc. will host during its bian-
nual "Sigma Recess" week.
There is one event held every
the fall, and one will be held in
the spring, senior Jacquestephen
Carrenard said.
The competition was divided
into three rounds.
The first team to earn five
points won the game and moved
on to the next round.
As music thrummed in the
background, competitors played
through each game, only taking a


break while they waited for other
games to finish.
Fourteen teams of two com-


peted, each giving itself a name petitors were not allowed to talk
like The Lion King and The about the card game while they
Reigning Champions. The com- were playing.


Matt Tripp/ Alligator Staff
Calvin Smith and Tay Ford play against Brandon Thomas and Thaddeus Blue during a semifinal round of
the World Series of Spades tournament put on by Phi Beta Sigma Inc. inside Orange & Brew Tuesday.


"It's a pretty intense game
when it starts getting played,"
said senior Terrell Wilks, who
helped plan the event. "People
show a lot of emotion when you
can't talk like that."
The games got more and more
competitive as the tournament
carried into the final games.
During the championship
round, everyone gathered around
the last table to peer over the
players' shoulders.
This year's winners, senior Mi-
chael Wood and sophomore Pau-
la Irvin of the Reigning Champi-
ons team, won a $100 Visa gift
certificate.
The chapter will decide where
the money raised throughout the
week will be donated.
In the past, Phi Beta Sigma Inc.
has donated funds to the Ameri-
can Red Cross, The American
Cancer Society and schools in the
Alachua County area.
"Nothing's definite as of yet,
but these are places we are look-
ing into," Carrenard said.
Other events Phi Beta Sigma
Inc. will be hosting this week are
a three-on-three basketball tour-
nament, a free game night and a
free barbecue and tailgate.

Equal opportunity

director elected
By JIMMIE PAUL
Alligator Writer
The Gainesville City Commission elected a new Equal
Opportunity Committee director at its Tuesday meeting.
Cecil E. Howard, one of six candidates the commission
invited for an on-site interview, was selected unanimously.
"I felt relieved," Howard said. "I had never gone through
a grueling two-day interview."
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan, the commissioners and char-
ter officers interviewed the applicants.
"I was thoroughly impressed by all six candidates,"
Hanrahan said. "They have all been stellar."
Howard said he plans to move to Gainesville soon and
analyze the failures and successes of the previous director.
The Equal Opportunity Committee ensures equal access
to employment, housing and credit in Gainesville.
As a Seminole, Howard joked about being a Gators fan.
"Once a Seminole, always a Seminole," he said. "How-
ever, my son is looking into UF." Ana Goni-Lessan/ Alligator Staff

Bourgie Burger

Burger King's makeover

too fancy for fast food

In an attempt to reign as fast food's king of the grill, Burg-
er King Corp. officials have announced plans to overhaul
its 12,000 restaurant locations.
The remodeled restaurants will feature a "sleek interior"
with "rotating red flame chandeliers" and "industrial-in-
spired corrugated metal and brick walls," according to an
article by the Associated Press.
The king of Burger King, CEO John Chidsey, said the
restaurant will feel much more "upscale," according to the
article.
About 60 locations have already been remodeled.
So, by the time the No. 2 burger restaurant chain in the
U.S. has finished remodeling its remaining 11,940 locations,
they'll likely be outdated.
We can't understand why fast food chains insist on mar-
keting their products as something other than fast food.
A McDonald's McCaf6 won't make anyone's McDesk job
any more McMarvelous.
Just like ordering a Whopper from a "brilliant TV-screen
menu" won't make our burgers any better.
So Burger King, please find another way to spend that
"whopping" $300,000 to $600,000 per restaurant. Perhaps
start with developing better menu items?
Or at least think of a better advertising campaign. That
king fella is getting creepy.

No Tiene Taco Bell


AMiami man appar-
ently wanted his
Taco Bell "fourth-
meal" so badly that he
thought it was worth a few
bullets.
After employees repeat-
edly told him he couldn't
place an order because the
restaurant was closed, the
man waited in the parking
lot and fired a gun at the
manager, according to an
Associated Press article.
Six rounds later, he
struck one employee in the
leg.
Unfortunately, investi-
gators have not found the
suspect, according to the
article.
So, what item on a Taco
Bell menu is worth open-
ing fire? The fire sauce?
A Crunchwrap Supreme?
Perhaps a MexiMelt?
We know how disap-
pointing it is to show up at
the University Avenue Taco
Bell, only to find that they're
out of beans, rice, chicken


and every other menu item.
We also know what it's like
to then drive to the chain
restaurant's Archer Road
location, only to hear that
employees "just turned off
the machines that make the
food." (Ahem, we thought
hands made our food.)
But this is Gainesville,
a city that shuts down at 2
a.m. Miami, however, nev-
er sleeps.
Couldn't the Taco Bell
Terror have ventured to,
say, an authentic Mexican
restaurant?
This man is an example
of why people need to take
a deep breath and not flip
out when things go awry.
It's a taco. Get over it.
Everyone can be guilty
of overreacting, but waiting
until employees leave so
you can shoot them is not
the right answer to "Sorry,
we're closed."
Just imagine what would
have happened if they
messed up his order.

SG involvement doesn't stop at polls


Ihate to break it to everyone who got worked up over
the Student Government elections last week, but noth-
ing new happened.
Last semester, the exact same issues were argued.
Transparency, online voting, "I voted" stickers heard
it all. And the same issues will be debated next semester.
Sure, there are slight twists. What will the majority
party call itself this year? What will Frank Bracco decide
to file a complaint about this time?
Let me share what I've learned after four and a half
years at UF, during much of which I was editing Alligator
stories about SG. Each party has really awesome people
who are in it for the right reasons. Each party also has
really shady people who get high off power and manipu-
late the system for their own motivations. And I really
don't believe that there are more of either type of people
on one side than the other.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. The system is corrupt. But it's a cor-
rupt system that spends $14 million of your money, re-
gardless of the corruption level.
I'm not going to say that the 83 percent of students
who didn't vote in this semester's elections were irre-
sponsible. I completely get the apathy.
Despite knowing a lot about SG and how it works, I
was still extremely tempted to not vote in this semester's
election. I told a volunteer who was trying to give me a
sticker, "I know more about Student Government than I
can ever hope to forget."
And even though my SG-passionate best friend
dragged me to the polls, I still don't believe that election
day or the issues that get brought up in the preceding
weeks are the ones that actually affect students in their
day-to-day lives.
Don't get me wrong I believe that the student paper


Hilary Lehman
letters@alligator org


has a duty to look into these issues,
and that the minority party should
continue bringing them up. It cre-
ates a checks and balances system
that's necessary in any type of dem-
ocratic government.
I just don't believe that voting
for a certain party in the election is
the way most students can best par-


ticipate in SG politics.
Do you think that food in the Reitz Union is over-
priced? SG officials have office hours, just like your pro-
fessors stop by and express your concerns. Are half
the chairs in your lecture hall broken? Learn the name of
your college's representative and send him or her an e-
mail. Want to make sure your voice gets heard? Show up
at a Senate meeting. They're open to students.
It's interesting to me that the SG pundits who bemoan
lack of student involvement just before and after the elec-
tion always seem to disappear during the year.
If you really care about SG, don't vote and then com-
plain that the same party always wins or complain about
even having to vote because your party always wins.
Newsflash: It's true! The same party always wins! That
doesn't mean that you're never going to see the results
you want out of SG or that you can assume the party of
your choice will do everything it promised.
In the end, whatever party you voted for, your repre-
sentatives are students who should care about the same
things you care about. Being active during the year is a
more surefire way of getting what you want out of UF's
student political process than just casting one vote.

SG lacks student relevance


The reason students don't participate in
Student Government is that it fails to
make a step toward a greater society.
Apathy isn't the issue, relevance is.
Instead of turning the goals and image of
SG into something that reflects a common
measure of greatness, those who participate
insulate themselves in a fake world. In their
bubble, they are able to act out an illusion of
greatness. Like a collection of children play-
ing monopoly and imagining themselves to
be powerful realtors, they have redefined
what is prideful and fundamental while on-
lookers merely smile, halfheartedly wish they
had time for such things and move on with
the work of understanding the larger world
and their part in it.
As long as the goals of SG amount to pass-
ing pointless resolutions or throwing the best
Gator Growl ever, students will continue to let
the children play their game by themselves.
As a Democrat, I can say that there is
plenty of room for an SG party to champion
the causes of the defenseless, voiceless and
less fortunate. Campus organizations such
as Pride Student Union and Human Rights
Awareness struggle to extend civil rights pro-
tection to the vulnerable and abused.
Off campus, the Alachua County Coali-
tion for the Homeless and Hungry is taking
on the most critical problem in our region:


Mike Belle the plight of the sick,
Speaking Out hungry, homeless and
hopeless. And a strong
stance against increas-
ing tuition is a message that many would
rally for.
Imagine if there was an SG party that com-
mitted itself to this sort of noble work first and
foremost as an extension of a shared, lifelong
commitment to a set of core principles?
Why isn't there a Democratic party in SG
politics, a group of registered Democrats who
are committed to higher-minded goals? For
that matter, why isn't there a Republican par-
ty in SG committed to cutting wasteful spend-
ing and lowering student fees? Why is there
just a bunch of fake movements with catchy
action words for names, two-year shelf lives
and the same silly platform planks?
People I have talked to about this idea
have told me that real political parties have
no place in SG, that it would be illegitimate.
These people are the ones participating in SG
politics, to whom I respectfully respond that
SG is already illegitimate. I should know; I
was a student senator for a year. I even held a
seat on the Budget Committee, which means
something to maybe 13 percent of you.
Maybe.

Letters to the Editor
Church group message exhausted
The Dove World Outreach Center
phenomenon is getting ridiculous. I un-
derstand that in the United States we
support a plurality of opinion and the
concept of free speech. However, since
when do we passively allow blatant
hatred and bigotry to go unchecked?
Though I don't typically lecture people
on the absolutes of "right" and "wrong,"
this is definitely an instance in our lives
where we need to take a step back and
say, "Damn it, that is wrong!"
The DWOC is abusing the liberal
idea of freedom of speech and opinion
by socializing young recruits to be hate-
ful, i.e. Martin Boecken, 15. What kind
of parents allow their child to march in
a hate parade? Furthermore, what kind
of parent allows his or her child to go to
school with an "Islam is of the Devil" T-
shirt, let alone with two different socks?
I don't know about anyone else, but
I'm sick and tired of this group profess-
ing a message so out of tune with mo-
dernity.
Although a controversial ethical issue
does exist, society needs to address this
serious philosophical question: Should
we stand by and watch something so
unsubstantiated, hateful and potentially
violent exist, or should we take action
responsibly before the group snowballs
into something far worse than it is now?
The group will most likely dissipate
and die off after a year or so but think of
the amount of young kids, just like us,
who will confirm bigotry in the name of
Jesus.

People should be more responsible
On Wednesday, The New York
Times ran an article about prepaid cards
and the large amount of fees they charge.
Like credit cards, these cards have con-
sumers agree to certain terms by simply
using the card.
So, when consumers are charged fees
mentioned in the terms they didn't read,
they complain and refuse to pay the fees.
They seem to forget that they agreed to
pay those fees when they used the card.
It is always easier to lay the blame on
someone else. Why? Why can't people
take responsibility? It's the "let me get
away with it" attitude that is becoming
increasingly common.
It's not only with banks and fees; it
can be seen with people who claim eat-
ing fast food caused them to gain weight
and sue the fast food chains as a result.
It can be seen with the people who plead
not guilty to charges they are guilty of.
It can even be found locally. I can't
begin to count how many people I've


heard of who broke traffic laws, were
caught and appealed. If you broke the
traffic laws and got caught, why can't
you accept the penalty for breaking the
law and move on? Because it's easier to
lay the blame on someone else and avoid
the penalties.
It's a dangerous new epidemic of ir-
responsibility, and it's infecting more
people every day.

Student should be grateful for food
I'd just like to respond to the letter to
the editor written in Tuesday's edition
of the Alligator by Alyssa Lai.
Yes, Lai, expired free food is better
than no food at all. I applaud the effort of
giving food away in order to bless broke
college students instead of just letting
it go to waste. If you're that offended,
please leave it for the people who will
appreciate it.

Reitz Union doesn't meet needs
I just have to comment on the ineffi-
cient services in the Reitz Union cafeteria
and with students who are sick with the
flu that choose to come to school, both of
which I had the horror of experiencing
today.
While paying for food at the Noodle
Bar on Tuesday, a student, who obvi-
ously came to campus sick, threw up
behind me and vomit got all over my
legs. He had also thrown up on the uten-
sil area between Noodle Bar and Home
Zone.
I returned to the area five minutes lat-
er, after telling a member of the janitorial
staff what had happened and scrubbing
down my legs, arms and hands numer-
ous times in the bathroom, and abso-
lutely nothing had been cleaned up. In
fact, people were stepping in the vomit
and taking utensils from the affected
area. The workers at the Noodle Bar saw
the incident, and the janitorial staff were
notified about it, yet absolutely nothing
had been done.
With the current swine flu pandemic,
I am absolutely appalled that anyone
would be selfish enough to come to
campus while sick, and that the UF em-
ployees in the Reitz Union would be so
passive about a potentially dangerous
situation. Please keep your eyes out for
these situations because obviously the
UF staff won't be looking out for even
your most basic interests or needs.

Former soldier meditates with inmates


By VANESSA DIMAGGIO
Alligator Contributing Writer

As they walk into the stark gray
room at the Lowell Correctional
Institution in Ocala, K.C. Walpole
greets each inmate with the grace of a
mentor and the sternness of a soldier.
Dressed in all black, his head shaved
smooth and his broad shoulders fit
into perfect posture.
"Are you full of fire and brim-
stone?" he asks a woman as a smile
dimples his aging face.
She nods at him.
"Is there anything we can do to fix
that today?"
She points to her head, grabs an
imaginary object from it then tosses
it away.
"Yeah, let's get rid of those
thoughts," Walpole agrees.
Walpole, 66, visits the female in-
mates at Lowell every Friday at 9 a.m.
He teaches them to sit for 15 minutes
or more without moving, talking or
thinking the Buddhist practice of
meditation.
Walpole, who leads monks at
the Gateless Gate Zen Center in
Gainesville, has held about 1,800
meditation and Zen programs for
inmates at 25 of Florida's prisons. In
a state where the inmate population
nears 100,000 and where one-third
of released inmates are jailed again
within three years, his programs aim
to reduce the number of inmates who
end up back behind bars.
He uses meditation to help the
prisoners develop self-discipline and
impulse control to reveal the reason
they first entered prison.
"If people are at peace with them-
selves, then they're at peace with
the world, and they can handle the
world," Walpole said.
Walpole founded the Gateless
Gate in High Springs in 1997. At his
first meditation session there, a man
brought a letter from an inmate at
Marion Correctional Institution ask-
ing for someone to teach him. Walpo-
le agreed, and within a year or two,
he was visiting prisons.
Walpole didn't always live the
meditative life of the Buddhist faith,
though. He served in the military for
nearly 25 years, working in the mid-
'70s and early '80s as a Green Beret,
training commandos in El Salvador
as the country erupted with violence.
When guerrillas assassinated one
of his closest friends, a life filled with

her stringy, long brown hair into a
bun as she recalls her first meditation
practice.
"It was hard, man," she said as she
tapped her pack of Marlboros on the
table. "Meditation for me is very, very
difficult. I can't even sit still here."
During her first meditation, the
instructor told Frazier to stay present
with the moment, but she couldn't.
Her sentence had just been re-
duced, and she could see the fin-
ish line. She didn't know where she
would go or how she would get her
life together.
She tried to stop thinking and fo-
cus on her breath. She heard a guard
outside yell, "Inmate, get in line!"
"Oh my God," she remembered.
"I'm in prison."
She still can't achieve a clear mind
during meditation, she said, but Wal-
pole calms her. He tells her every-
thing is as it should be, and we are all
perfect in this moment.
Frazier met Walpole at a ceremo-
ny at the prison where she vowed to
live a wholesome, ethical life.
He walked in with his "Obi-Wan
Kenobi" robes, his Buddha statues
and some incense. He called her
name, then whacked a wooden stick
and startled her.
But it was during the end of the
ceremony, when she was supposed
to receive a burn on her hand, that
Walpole showed his true colors.

FUNDING, from page 1

"With computers, we can design
explosives that are safer to handle and
more effective," Rogacki said.
To receive funding, researchers and
their teams often have to send out ex-
tensive proposals to the agencies solic-
iting ideas.
"Almost all research gets funded
by someone else," Rogacki said. "But
it's funded on a competitive basis, and
there are a lot of good universities out
there."
One university is the University of
South Florida. Ranked a distant sec-
ond in the state behind UF, The Tampa
Tribune reported the foundation's esti-
mate of about $278 million allocated to


research spending at the university.
Rogacki welcomes the competition.
"I don't view USF or other univer-
sities as threats," he said. "I think cer-
tainly for the good of the nation, the
more researchers we have, the better
off we're going to be."
Rogacki applies the same mind-
set to other
UF universities,
Administration crediting the
competitive
nature of research funding as creative
fuel.
"When someone like UCF or USF
or FSU or any other university gets bet-
ter, they force us to get better," Rogacki
said. "We welcome their competition,
and we appreciate the contribution
they make."

"It may be frightening and unfamiliar

Supervisor of Elections Ariana Alfonso
stopped by the meeting to go over results from
last week's election. Senators approved them
by unanimous consent.
Once old senators said their goodbyes, the
newly-elected senators got down to business.
Their first act was to elect new Senate leader-
ship.
Unite Party Sen. Ashton Charles was
elected Senate President and Unite Party Sen.
Naadira Renfroe was elected as Senate Presi-


dent Pro-Tempore.
CLAS Sen. Andre Haughton, from the
Unite Party, endorsed Renfroe, who represents
the sophomore class.
Haughton said his reasons for supporting
Renfroe extended beyond her resume and
work ethic. He said Renfroe would prevent
Senate from becoming isolated from the stu-
dents it represents.
"I'm confident that Sen. Renfroe will em-
body this dream and keep it alive," he said.
Unite Party Sophomore Class Sen. Kara
Olesky said she supported Charles, who rep-
resents District A, because she is a great role
model and will work for students.

Frozen yogurt shops to open downtown, near campus


* NEW STORES INCLUDE TUTTI
FRUTTI, SECOND MOCHI.

By ESTEE BECK
Alligator Contributing Writer

Gainesville has a soft spot for frozen yo-
gurt.
Two new stores will join Gainesville's
bevy of yogurt shops.
Florida's first Tutti Frutti, a self-serve fro-
zen yogurt shop, will open at 1232 W Univer-
sity Ave. No information was available about
its projected open date, but the location is
listed on the company's Web site.


The second store, located on the first floor
of the new downtown Hampton Inn & Suites,
will be Gainesville's second Mochi. One of
the managers, Jurel Serrana, said business has
been good at the company's Archer Road lo-
cation, which opened during Summer A. The
new store is expected to open in January.
Mochi's business hours are noon to mid-
night every day. According to Serrana, the
downtown store will have the same hours,
but it may be open later on weekends for
clubgoers.
While Mochi is expanding, other yogurt
shops aren't afraid of the competition.
Yogaberry general manager Jennifer Fich-


ter said she expects the store to stay afloat in
the flooding market.
"Is [the competition] daunting? No, not
really," Fichter said. "It's all about what kind
of PR you do."
Fichter said that Yogaberry's coffee menu
and pastry assortments
Around make it unique from other
Gainesville yogurt shops. She said the
shop is trying to keep the
customers who loved Deja Brew.
Mochi finds its individuality in the envi-
ronmentally friendliness of its product, Ser-
rana said.
The cups and spoons at Mochi are made


of plant starch and biodegradable materials.
The yogurt machines have an energy-saving
cooling system, and some of the decor is
made from partially recycled materials.
To keep customers coming back for that
frozen fix during the cold months, Serrana
said Mochi will play around with new flavors
and take requests from customers. Serrana
said frozen yogurt is a healthy alternative to
other desserts.
She said new designs for the downtown
Mochi are in the making.
"I think Mochi is really different," Serrana
said. "I think frozen yogurt is going to be here
for a while."

Group holds lecture


about free software


By KRISTEN BOWE
Alligator Contributing Writer

About 50 UF students at-
tended Tuesday night's Mind
MashUp with laptops in hand
ready to learn about open-
source software.
The event was held by Flori-
da Free Culture in Library West
in honor of the the first interna-
tional Open Access Week, from
Oct. 19 to Oct. 23, which aims to
broaden students' understand-
ing of open access.
During the two-hour event,
students learned to remix im-
ages, music and videos licensed
under Creative Commons, an
alternative copyrighting sys-
tem, said Jennifer Griffith, pres-
ident of Florida Free Culture.
Club members demon-
strated how to use open source
software programs like Audac-


ity, Blender, Inkscape and The
GIMP.
Griffith, a third-year elec-
trical engineering major, said
the club's goal was to raise
awareness about the software
resources that are available to
students.
Griffith said the club hoped
to "foster a spirit of innova-
tion."
Angela Austin, a fourth-year
anthropology major, attended
the workshop.
"We need to increase free
software in the way that we
communicate and transmit
ideas," she said.
Austin hopes society evolves
past copyright. "It must come
from people using the program,
not the company," she said.
She said there is no way to
avoid open sharing because it's
a part of the culture.
"It's a digital age," she said.


Students watch as Patrick Flanagan,21, demonstrates Adobe Premiere at the Mind MashUp event at Library
West Tuesday. The event tested open-source software and educated people about the different types.

Tebow returns to limited practice

0 THE SENIOR STILL ISN'T
CLEARED FOR CONTACT.

By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@allIgator org

Florida quarterback Tim Tebow
returned to practice in a limited
role Tuesday after being cleared for
non-contact drills.
Coach Urban Meyer said Tebow
split snaps 50-50 with backup John
Brantley, and discussions will con-
tinue for the next few days about
whether or not Tebow can and
should play at LSU on Saturday.
"He didn't go full, and it was ob-
viously non-contact," Meyer said.
"I'd say he did probably 80 percent
of practice. He did well. A little
rusty, not really from anything oth-
er than that he hasn't played foot-
ball in over a week."
Meyer said Tebow worked out
and did some conditioning Sunday 1I
and Monday, and a team of experts
including trainers, physicians, a
neurosurgeon and a neurologist
were involved in clearing him to
practice.
"He looked like Tim out there
today," Meyer said. "Obviously
he practiced a lot differently than

Brantley preps


as possible


starter vs. LSU
By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alllgator org

When Florida's starting quarterback takes the field
at Tiger Stadium on Saturday night, he will have gone
through a week of prank calls from LSU fans.
It's just unclear who "he" will be.
While senior Tim Tebow returned to practice Tues-
day, his status for UF's game Saturday is still uncertain.
LSU fans apparently wanted to take every precau-
tion, so they acquired sophomore John
Brantley's cell phone number and have
Been berating him with calls and text
messages.
Football Tebow went through a similar thing in
the week before the team's 2007 matchup.
After scoring a touchdown two years ago,
Tebow celebrated by pretending to dial a phone.
So far, LSU fans have treated Brantley like an equal off
the field, but how will UF's offense change if it is No. 12
and not No. 15 taking the snaps Saturday night?
Offensive coordinator Steve Addazio said any altera-
tions would be slight.
"He's got a good grasp of the whole offense," Add-
azio said. "Obviously, like always, we'll always have
little things that feature someone's personal strengths
- John's a real thrower that's something you can fea-
ture a little bit. The bottom line is he's been trained to run
our offense, and he'll run the offense, and he'll do it real
well."
All of Brantley's playing time so far has come after UF
had secured a victory. He has appeared in three of four
games this season and completed 22 of 30 passes for 232
yards and four touchdowns, good for a 182.29 passer ef-
ficiency rating.
If he plays Saturday, he will face a LSU pass defense

Preseason polls give false sense of upsets in college football


Apparently, this is the year of the upset
in college football.
But why?
Sure, seven teams ranked in the top 10 of
the AP preseason poll already have at least
one loss on their records, but what makes
these teams considered elite before the season
begins?
It is the preseason polls that create these
notions that some teams are the best in the na-
tion when eventually they will prove they are
nothing more than frauds.
Every year, a bunch of voters decide which
teams are the best in the nation based off


their performances in
the previous season,
player turnover in the
offseason and their
schedules heading into
the season.
Bobby Callovi Nowhere in the
Bobby's World consideration is how
bcallovi gatororg teams have fared so far
through the season.
Once the teams
have been voted to a spot in the rankings, only
a loss can significantly drop them from that
spot, and only a loss by another team can al-


low them to leap in the rankings.
This makes it hard for a team that has
played extremely well in the current year to
move up on its own, and God forbid that team
loses a game, because it probably will find it-
self in the back half of the top 25 or out of the
poll altogether.
But teams like USC and Oklahoma barely
fall after losses. Neither team fell out of the top
15 after its early season loss, and USC's defeat
came at the hands of unranked Washington.
This system makes every season the year
of the upset in college football because no
one really knows if any of these teams in the


preseason top 10 will be as good as they are
expected to be.
Since 2002, only once have the AP voters
been correct in the preseason about which
team would be the best in the nation at the end
- USC was No. 1 before and after the 2004
season.
And the rest of their top 10s have not
looked much better.
In that same time, 2007 had the most pre-
season top 10 teams (six) finish there after
year's end.

Gators will charter after match with Gamecocks


* THE RETURN TO GAINESVILLE IS
UF'S ONLY CHARTER THIS SEASON.

By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alligatororg
While other Southeastern Conference
teams have been flying first-class, the Gators
have been the class of the league and saving
money in the process.
Several other SEC schools have incurred
the added expense of chartering flights -
Mississippi State's volleyball team had its own
plane for three full weekends last season, and
Kentucky is doing the same this season but
UF has only chartered one flight per season in
recent years.
"I don't know why they (other programs)
make those choices, but at the end of the day,
dollars are dollars," said Lynda Tealer, the
senior associate athletic director for women's
sports. "So you may opt to spend dollars in
that way, but then you don't have them to
spend on something else."
After kicking off a four-match road swing
with a rare midweek contest against South
Carolina (10-5, 2-4 SEC) in Columbia tonight
at 7, No. 6 Florida (11-2, 5-1 SEC) will enjoy


the once-in-a-season luxury three other UF
sports use regularly: a chartered flight back to
Gainesville.
Commercial travel has already had its share
of ups and downs for the Gators this year. Af-
ter sweeping Arkansas on the road on Sept. 20,
UF coach Mary Wise said in a radio interview
that the team would only make its flight if it
won in three sets.
"We'd absolutely love to charter every
single away match, but it's just not like that,"
junior opposite hitter Lauren Bledsoe said.
"And those regular flights, they work out just
great. We make it work.
"Sitting here wishing, it just doesn't matter.
We've handled it."
This weekend, commercial airfare could
provide another difficulty for UF. With its next
two matches being televised on ESPNU at 7
p.m., the Gators are subject to the network's
scheduling. That means their Sunday match
at LSU will end too late to catch a flight back
that night, so they will have to travel back to
Gainesville early Monday morning.
"That really is an oddity because I can't
think of any other sport or program where
there's typically Sunday evening competi-
tion," Tealer said. "It just doesn't happen."
Although commercial airfare and busing
may be harder on the players and coaches, it
lightens the financial load on the athletics pro-


gram.
"I think the only benefit for chartering is
convenience, which is a legitimate benefit,
but that's really the only benefit," Tealer said.
"The cost is just so incredibly significant when
you have that many competitions."
The Gators football, men's basketball and
women's basketball teams charter their own
flights on a regular basis when necessary.
Tealer said the cost simply
, outweighs the convenience
of chartering flights for other
UF sports. Aside from foot-
Volleyball ball and basketball, every
team at Florida only charters
a return flight for midweek
matches or under extenuating circumstances.
According to Tealer, the average cost of
sending the volleyball team round-trip on
commercial flights is around $4,500 to $5,000.
The lowest a chartered plane would cost for
the same trip is about $25,000.
"When you multiply that over the course of
the season for all of the teams, it just becomes
a really unmanageable amount of money to
spend on travel," Tealer said.
For the Florida volleyball program, the
money saved through busing or flying com-
mercial can be reallocated to paying for coach-
es, managers, equipment, the training staff or
scholarships.


Each decision has its benefits and detri-
ments, but the more money available for
scholarships, the more Wise and her coaching
staff can recruit the best players possible, par-
ticularly out-of-state athletes.
According to a University Athletic Associa-
tion expense report, the volleyball program's
scholarship budget is the sixth largest of all
UF sports, behind football, women's track,
women's swimming, women's basketball and
soccer.
Six of UF's 15 players are from Florida, so
the cost of offering scholarships to the nine out-
of-state players is greater than that of, for ex-
ample, Florida's baseball program, which has
a lower scholarship limit (11.7 to volleyball's
12) and primarily recruits in-state athletes.
Despite the lower cost of recruiting, the
baseball team operates under the same travel
circumstances as the volleyball team only
for midweek competitions or under extenu-
ating circumstances, like getting the student-
athletes back from Columbia on Wednesday
night in time for class Thursday.
"Typically, when they compete on Friday
and Sunday unless something goes bad on
that Sunday return, which unfortunately, that
happens for a lot of our teams; traveling in and
out of Gainesville can sometimes be challeng-
ing but for the most part, they're able to
minimize their missed classes," Tealer said.

UF learns from loss


* OLE MISS DEFEATED
FLORIDA 3-2 ON SUNDAY.

By EUGENIO TORRENS
Alligator Writer
etorrens@alligator org

The fall from grace is swift and
unforeseen.
The UF soccer team's most re-
cent 3-2 double overtime loss to
Mississippi on Sunday ushered in
the possibility of a new mindset in
the Southeastern Conference: the
Gators are vulnerable.
UF coach Becky Burleigh and
her players all echoed the same
thing, it's up to them to change
other people's perception.
"Our players come here to win
the SEC and we're certainly not
giving up that fight," Burleigh
said. "We have too much talent on
this team for this thing to not turn
around."
By tying Mississippi State last
Friday, 1-1, UF broke its 22-game
SEC regular-season win streak that
started Oct. 7, 2007.
Sophomore Lindsay Thompson
said it was two different teams
from the state of Mississippi than
the ones the Gators (8-4-1, 2-1-1
SEC) beat last year en route to an
11-0 conference record.
"I feel like we have to bounce
back and do what we can this
weekend to prove that we're still
somebody who is going to be reck-
oned with in the SEC," Thompson
said.
For a program that has finished
first in the SEC the last three years,
a tie and loss in consecutive SEC
matches is something other confer-
ence foes can feed upon.
"I think teams have probably


gotten a little arrogant because the
team that went undefeated last year
kind of stumbled this past week,"
senior Angela Napolitano said.
While the loss is a blemish on
the record, players tried to take it
as a lesson.
"I think that it's good in the
sense that it humbles us," Napoli-
tano said. "It reminds us that if we
don't come out the way we need to,
that we can get beat by anybody."
Redshirt freshman McKenzie
Barney, whose first two college
goals came against Vanderbilt, said
it reinforced the constant focus the
team needs to have.
"Nothing worth
/ having is going to
come easy at all this
season," she said.
Soccer "We can't let down
for one game, we can't
let down for one second."
Barney said it doesn't matter
how other teams in the conference
perceive the Gators, and that it
shouldn't affect the way the team
executes. She said part of the plan is
making sure UF dictates the tempo
and plays its fast-paced offense.
"Personally I always think -
well I know that we're a good
team," Barney said.
If anything, the team will hope
that history repeats itself. The 22-
game SEC regular-season win
streak began after back-to-back
losses at Georgia and at Tennes-
see.
If the team has fallen in the SEC
totem pole, the climb back up will
partly rest on the upperclassmen's
experience.
"We've been here before," Na-
politano said. "We've come back
and it's not anything that's out of
our reach by any means."


Run game takes pressure off Brantley

FOOT, from page 17


that's third-worst in the South-
eastern Conference.
Sophomore wide receiver
Deonte Thompson, one of the
team's best deep options, is ex-
pected to play this weekend af-
ter missing the last two games.
"We've got so many play-
makers at this school," Brantley
said. "To go in there and see
those playmakers in the huddle
with you, that gives you confi-
dence."
Brantley will also be aided
by the nation's top rushing of-
fense. The Gators are averaging
307.5 yards per game behind
Tebow and their trio of run-
ning backs -Jeff Demps, Chris
Rainey and Emmanuel Moody.
Each of the three is averaging
more than 8 yards per carry.
Running backs coach Ken-
ny Carter acknowledged his
guys might carry a heavier
load if Tebow doesn't play
but stressed the importance of
throwing the ball.
"The passing game is a vital
part of what you have to do to
be successful in this league,"
Carter said. "You can't be one-
dimensional. Us being produc-
tive is huge, but we have to
play well at quarterback too."
While relatively untested
in college, Brantley came to
Gainesville as the sixth-best
quarterback prospect coming
out of high school, according to
Rivals.com
Now Florida's undefeated
record may rest on Brantley's
shoulders.
"Anytime you don't have a

guy like Tim Tebow who's ar-
guably the best college football
player in America stop right
there," Addazio said. "But John
Brantley is a hell of a football
player. I mean a big-time guy.
"We're going to have some


wrinkles for John Brantley like
we always would, but John
Brantley will run our offense
and John Brantley will com-
pete. John Brantley would be
starting for a lot of teams in this
conference right now."

UF TENNIS

Embree, Will advance in singles, doubles


By GREG LUCA
Alligator Writer
While Johnny Hamui's at-
tempt to get a second Gator into
the men's main draw of the ITA
All American Championships
came to an unsuccessful end on
Tuesday, freshman Lauren Em-
bree was dominant in her first
and second round of qualifying
and still has a shot at joining
Marrit Boonstra in the women's
draw.
So too does freshman Allie
Will, who was selected to com-
pete in the qualifying draw de-
spite a loss in the pre-qualifying


tournament.
Embree blew out No. 70
Lenka Hojckova of North Caro-
lina State 6-0, 6-1 and followed
that up with a 6-4, 6-1 win over
No. 52 Liset Brito in her second
round match on Tuesday. The
win brings Embree to 4-0 in her
UF career, with each win coming
against a ranked opponent.
"Lauren was very aggres-
sive today, and that's something
we've been working a lot on in
practice," associate head coach
Dave Balogh said.
Also in action on Tuesday was
Will, who by a stroke of luck got
selected to play in the qualifying
tournament and made the most


of her opportunity with wins
over Anna Redecsi of DePaul
and Denise Dy of Washington.
This wasn't the only action
for the talented
freshmen on
the day, as they
teamed up and
won an 8-6 vic-
tory over third-
seeded Marta
Lesniak and
Hamui Aleksandra
Malyarchikova
of SMU. Will and Embree went
down 3-0 early but managed to
keep it together and record the
comeback victory. This brings
UF's team of freshman to 3-0 in


doubles action for the season.
"They communicate and work
really well together, but whether
its singles or doubles they're just
so competitive, they always find
a way to come through," Balogh
said.
Also in the women's doubles
qualifying draw is the team of
Boonstra and Joanna Mather, the
tournament's No. 2 seed. This
pairing was also victorious Tues-
day, besting Vanja Corovic and
Stephanie Davison of Texas 8-4.
On the men's side, Hamui fell
to Christoph Thiemann of Ole
Miss 6-3, 4-6, 6-3, ensuring only
Alex Lacroix will be participat-
ing in the main draw.


BOBBY, from page 17
Last year was arguably the
pollsters' worst, though.
Only four teams stayed in the
top 10 after the season, and three
of those preseason top-10 teams
were not even ranked by year's
end LSU, Clemson and Au-
burn.
This season, the preseason poll
has obviously not gotten off to a
good start with four top 10 teams
already out of that group.
These preseason polls are fun
for fans and make it easier for the
media to call a season the year of
the upset when preseason predic-
tions begin to crumble, but they
don't do any good for college
football.
All they really do is make
things harder for teams that en-
ter the season already considered
not very good despite not playing
a down.
A lot of these teams aren't
good and were rightfully left
out of the preseason polls, but
they should at least be given the
chance to prove they suck before
being labeled as such.
In a similar fashion, some of
the teams in the preseason polls
are top teams, but they should
have to prove it on the field, rath-
er than be given an advantage by
a bunch of voters who are mak-
ing guesses.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2009 UF ADMINISTRATION Research funding ranks 19t By ALISON SCHWARTZ Alligator Writer A rickety economy has not stopped UF from spending about $584 million on science and engineering research in the 2008 fiscal year, earning the university a spot in the nation's top 20 in terms of research funding. Even still, UF looks a little stingy compared to its spending the previous year. According to the National Science Foundation, UF's spending decreased by about $9 million from the 2007 fiscal year. UF is ranked 19th in the nation, according to the foundation. John "Row" Rogacki, director of the UF Research and Engineering Education Facilh in US ity, credits the university's reputation for the amount of funding it received. "The university has a very strong reputation, and we work very hard at what we do, competing for and winning grants and contracts," Rogacki said. "It really speaks highly of our people." Rogacki described the process to receive funds as cutthroat, often weeding out good ideas along the way. "It's a competition," Rogacki said. "There are more good ideas than there is money to fund those good ideas." Rogacki said REEF's current research agenda includes computation energetics and computation mechanics, studies that focus on munition innovation. SEE FUNDING, PAGE 9 By KATHERINE BEIN Alligator Staff Writer kbein@a Iligator org A former UF engineering employee was arrested Sept. 29 after police say he molested a 9-year-old girl last year. David Blankenship, 53, was arrested in Washington County after a warrant was issued from the state attorney's office, according to a release. On April 15, the victim came to Alachua police and said Blankenship molested her in 2008, though she was not able to give them an exact date, according to the release. The girl told police he entered her room, touched her genitals under her clothes and penetrated her with his fingers, according to a police report. The report did not include the reason Blankenship was in the girl's room. Blankenship was charged with lewd and lascivious molestation. His bail has been posted at $100,000, acC cording to the release. Blankenship worked at UF as a photographer in the College of Engineering News and PubBlankenship locations office from September 1980 until July 2008, UF spokesman Steve Orlando said. Orlando had no further comment on the investigation. Staff writer Carolyn Tillo contributed to this article. Senators say farewell, welcome newly elected members By CAROLYN TILLO Alligator Writer Senate rocked to a new beat Tuesday night when new senators were sworn in and old senators said goodbye. Progress Party Sen. Dave Schneider, who represented Rawlings Hall, left Senate with a bang. He grabbed a guitar and two musicians and sang a rendition of "Thank You for Letting Me Be Myself Again" by Sly and the Family Stone. "Guys, as my last meeting, I figured that making a speech would be kind of another Student brick in the Government wall, dust in the wind," he said. Schneider dedicated the song to his party members and the senators who voted in favor of the resolution asking Aramark, UF's food provider, to negotiate wage increases for Immokalee tomato growers. Orange & Blue Party Sen. Ben Cavataro, who represented Hume Hall, said he did not want to see the band go. "I wish they could stay for the rest of the night so that they could play people off the stage like the Oscars," Cavataro joked. Cavataro offered advice to new senators, saying they should be proactive and find their niche in Senate.

While he still officially held his seat until Tuesday night, when his term ended, McCabe withdrew from the university on Sept. 14, according to the Office of the University Registrar. The registrar's office initially provided incorrect information, listing McCabe as an enrolled student, but confirmed Tuesday he had withdrawn. An employee in the Student Government office said McCabe was able to retain his seat because no one had notified the office of his withdrawal.

4, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 7,2009 Fraternity hosts World Series of Spades for charity 28 PLAYERS COMPETED FOR A $100 VISA GIFT CERTIFICATE. By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN Alligator Contributing Writer The Reigning Champions won the World Series on Tuesday night. Twenty-eight players sipped on smoothies and sodas while they competed in Phi On Beta Sigma FraterCampuS nity Inc.'s World Series of Spades cards tournament at Orange & Brew. The World Series of Spades is one of seven events Phi Beta Sigma Inc. will host during its biannual "Sigma Recess" week. There is one event held every the fall, and one will be held in the spring, senior Jacquestephen Carrenard said. The competition was divided into three rounds. The first team to earn five points won the game and moved on to the next round. As music thrummed in the background, competitors played through each game, only taking a break while they waited for other games to finish. Fourteen teams of two competed, each giving itself a name like The Lion King and The Reigning Champions. The competitors were not allowed to talk about the card game while they were playing. Matt Tripp / Alligator Staff Calvin Smith and Tay Ford play against Brandon Thomas and Thaddeus Blue during a semifinal round of the World Series of Spades tournament put on by Phi Beta Sigma Inc. inside Orange & Brew Tuesday. "It's a pretty intense game when it starts getting played," said senior Terrell Wilks, who helped plan the event. "People show a lot of emotion when you can't talk like that." The games got more and more competitive as the tournament carried into the final games. During the championship round, everyone gathered around the last table to peer over the players' shoulders. This year's winners, senior Michael Wood and sophomore Paula Irvin of the Reigning Champions team, won a $100 Visa gift certificate. The chapter will decide where the money raised throughout the week will be donated. In the past, Phi Beta Sigma Inc. has donated funds to the American Red Cross, The American Cancer Society and schools in the Alachua County area. "Nothing's definite as of yet, but these are places we are looking into," Carrenard said. Other events Phi Beta Sigma Inc. will be hosting this week are a three-on-three basketball tournament, a free game night and a free barbecue and tailgate.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2009 U ALLIGATOR, 5 CITY COMMISSION Equal opportunity director elected By JIMMIE PAUL Alligator Writer The Gainesville City Commission elected a new Equal Opportunity Committee director at its Tuesday meeting. Cecil E. Howard, one of six candidates the commission invited for an on-site interview, was selected unanimously. "I felt relieved," Howard said. "I had never gone through a grueling two-day interview." Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan, the commissioners and chari ter officers interviewed the applicants. "I was thoroughly impressed by all six candidates," Hanrahan said. "They have all been stellar." Howard said he plans to move to Gainesville soon and analyze the failures and successes of the previous director. The Equal Opportunity Committee ensures equal access to employment, housing and credit in Gainesville. As a Seminole, Howard joked about being a Gators fan. "Once a Seminole, always a Seminole," he said. "However, my son is looking into UF."

The remodeled restaurants will feature a "sleek interior" with "rotating red flame chandeliers" and "industrial-inspired corrugated metal and brick walls," according to an article by the Associated Press. The king of Burger King, CEO John Chidsey, said the restaurant will feel much more "upscale," according to the article. About 60 locations have already been remodeled. So, by the time the No. 2 burger restaurant chain in the U.S. has finished remodeling its remaining 11,940 locations, they'll likely be outdated. We can't understand why fast food chains insist on marketing their products as something other than fast food. A McDonald's McCaf6 won't make anyone's McDesk job any more McMarvelous. Just like ordering a Whopper from a "brilliant TV-screen menu" won't make our burgers any better. So Burger King, please find another way to spend that "whopping" $300,000 to $600,000 per restaurant. Perhaps start with developing better menu items? Or at least think of a better advertising campaign. That king fella is getting creepy. No Tiene Taco Bell Miami man apparently wanted his Taco Bell "fourthmeal" so badly that he thought it was worth a few bullets. After employees repeatedly told him he couldn't place an order because the restaurant was closed, the man waited in the parking lot and fired a gun at the manager, according to an Associated Press article. Six rounds later, he struck one employee in the leg. Unfortunately, investigators have not found the suspect, according to the article. So, what item on a Taco Bell menu is worth opening fire? The fire sauce? A Crunchwrap Supreme? Perhaps a MexiMelt? We know how disappointing it is to show up at the University Avenue Taco Bell, only to find that they're out of beans, rice, chicken and every other menu item. We also know what it's like to then drive to the chain restaurant's Archer Road location, only to hear that employees "just turned off the machines that make the food." (Ahem, we thought hands made our food.) But this is Gainesville, a city that shuts down at 2 a.m. Miami, however, never sleeps. Couldn't the Taco Bell Terror have ventured to, say, an authentic Mexican restaurante? This man is an example of why people need to take a deep breath and not flip out when things go awry. It's a taco. Get over it. Everyone can be guilty of overreacting, but waiting until employees leave so you can shoot them is not the right answer to "Sorry, we're closed." Just imagine what would have happened if they messed up his order. 0l the independent florida alligator Kristin Bjornsen 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 includethe 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 1105 W University Aye or send them to P0 Box 14257, GainesviIle, FL 32604-2257Columns of about 450 words about original topics and editorial cartoons are also welcome Questions?

(2r Column SG involvement doesn't stop at polls hate to break it to everyone who got worked up over the Student Government elections last week, but nothing new happened. Last semester, the exact same issues were argued. Transparency, online voting, "I voted" stickers -heard it all. And the same issues will be debated next semester. Sure, there are slight twists. What will the majority party call itself this year? What will Frank Bracco decide to file a complaint about this time? Let me share what I've learned after four and a half years at UF, during much of which I was editing Alligator stories about SG. Each party has really awesome people who are in it for the right reasons. Each party also has really shady people who get high off power and manipulate the system for their own motivations. And I really don't believe that there are more of either type of people on one side than the other. Yeah, yeah, yeah. The system is corrupt. But it's a corrupt system that spends $14 million of your money, regardless of the corruption level. I'm not going to say that the 83 percent of students who didn't vote in this semester's elections were irresponsible. I completely get the apathy. Despite knowing a lot about SG and how it works, I was still extremely tempted to not vote in this semester's election. I told a volunteer who was trying to give me a sticker, "I know more about Student Government than I can ever hope to forget." And even though my SG-passionate best friend dragged me to the polls, I still don't believe that election day or the issues that get brought up in the preceding weeks are the ones that actually affect students in their day-to-day lives. Don't get me wrong -I believe that the student paper Hilary Lehman Ietters@alligator org has a duty to look into these issues, and that the minority party should continue bringing them up. It creates a checks and balances system that's necessary in any type of democratic government. I just don't believe that voting for a certain party in the election is the way most students can best participate in SG politics. Do you think that food in the Reitz Union is overpriced? SG officials have office hours, just like your professors -stop by and express your concerns. Are half the chairs in your lecture hall broken? Learn the name of your college's representative and send him or her an email. Want to make sure your voice gets heard? Show up at a Senate meeting. They're open to students. It's interesting to me that the SG pundits who bemoan lack of student involvement just before and after the election always seem to disappear during the year. If you really care about SG, don't vote and then complain that the same party always wins or complain about even having to vote because your party always wins. Newsflash: It's true! The same party always wins! That doesn't mean that you're never going to see the results you want out of SG or that you can assume the party of your choice will do everything it promised. In the end, whatever party you voted for, your representatives are students who should care about the same things you care about. Being active during the year is a more surefire way of getting what you want out of UF's student political process than just casting one vote. Hilary Lehman is a journalism senior.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2009 U ALLIGATOR, 7 Letters to the Editor Copyrighted Material S yndicate Content Available from Commercial News Providers i Guest column SG lacks student relevance he reason students don't participate in Student Government is that it fails to make a step toward a greater society. Apathy isn't the issue, relevance is. Instead of turning the goals and image of SG into something that reflects a common measure of greatness, those who participate insulate themselves in a fake world. In their bubble, they are able to act out an illusion of greatness. Like a collection of children playing monopoly and imagining themselves to be powerful realtors, they have redefined what is prideful and fundamental while onlookers merely smile, halfheartedly wish they had time for such things and move on with the work of understanding the larger world and their part in it. As long as the goals of SG amount to passing pointless resolutions or throwing the best Gator Growl ever, students will continue to let the children play their game by themselves. As a Democrat, I can say that there is plenty of room for an SG party to champion the causes of the defenseless, voiceless and less fortunate. Campus organizations such as Pride Student Union and Human Rights Awareness struggle to extend civil rights protection to the vulnerable and abused. Off campus, the Alachua County Coalition for the Homeless and Hungry is taking on the most critical problem in our region: Mike Belle the plight of the sick, Speaking Out hungry, homeless and hopeless. And a strong stance against increasing tuition is a message that many would rally for. Imagine if there was an SG party that committed itself to this sort of noble work first and foremost as an extension of a shared, lifelong commitment to a set of core principles? Why isn't there a Democratic party in SG politics, a group of registered Democrats who are committed to higher-minded goals? For that matter, why isn't there a Republican party in SG committed to cutting wasteful spending and lowering student fees? Why is there just a bunch of fake movements with catchy action words for names, two-year shelf lives and the same silly platform planks? People I have talked to about this idea have told me that real political parties have no place in SG, that it would be illegitimate. These people are the ones participating in SG politics, to whom I respectfully respond that SG is already illegitimate. I should know; I was a student senator for a year. I even held a seat on the Budget Committee, which means something to maybe 13 percent of you. Maybe. Mike Belle is a political science graduate student. ""141(11 N EXT TO GATOR CITY: j UNKIN 1730 W.

I understand that in the United States we support a plurality of opinion and the concept of free speech. However, since when do we passively allow blatant hatred and bigotry to go unchecked? Though I don't typically lecture people on the absolutes of "right" and "wrong," this is definitely an instance in our lives where we need to take a step back and say, "Damn it, that is wrong!" The DWOC is abusing the liberal idea of freedom of speech and opinion by socializing young recruits to be hateful, i.e. Martin Boecken, 15.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2009 U ALLIGATOR, 9 Former soldier meditates with inmates By VANESSA DIMAGGIO Alligator Contributing Writer As they walk into the stark gray room at the Lowell Correctional Institution in Ocala, K.C. Walpole greets each inmate with the grace of a mentor and the sternness of a soldier. Dressed in all black, his head shaved smooth and his broad shoulders fit into perfect posture. "Are you full of fire and brimstone?" he asks a woman as a smile dimples his aging face. She nods at him. "Is there anything we can do to fix that today?" She points to her head, grabs an imaginary object from it then tosses it away. "Yeah, let's get rid of those thoughts," Walpole agrees. Walpole, 66, visits the female inmates at Lowell every Friday at 9 a.m. He teaches them to sit for 15 minutes or more without moving, talking or thinking -the Buddhist practice of meditation. Walpole, who leads monks at the Gateless Gate Zen Center in Gainesville, has held about 1,800 meditation and Zen programs for inmates at 25 of Florida's prisons. In a state where the inmate population nears 100,000 and where one-third of released inmates are jailed again within three years, his programs aim to reduce the number of inmates who end up back behind bars. He uses meditation to help the prisoners develop self-discipline and impulse control to reveal the reason they first entered prison. "If people are at peace with themselves, then they're at peace with the world, and they can handle the world," Walpole said. Walpole founded the Gateless Gate in High Springs in 1997. At his first meditation session there, a man brought a letter from an inmate at Marion Correctional Institution asking for someone to teach him. Walpole agreed, and within a year or two, he was visiting prisons. Walpole didn't always live the meditative life of the Buddhist faith, though. He served in the military for nearly 25 years, working in the mid'70s and early '80s as a Green Beret, training commandos in El Salvador as the country erupted with violence. When guerrillas assassinated one of his closest friends, a life filled with grief, violence and paranoia caught up with him. "I guess you could say I was enjoying some of the aftereffects of military service in the fast lane," Walpole said. "You could call it [post-traumatic stress disorder]." He turned to yoga and meditation and retired from the military in 1985. "Twenty-fours years of soldiering was enough," Walpole said. Marcia Frazier, who attended a meditation program at Broward Correctional Institution, said Walpole is a "stealth bomber" when it comes to teaching her life lessons. "He gets in exactly where he needs to be without you even knowing it," Frazier said. Sitting at the mom-and-pop bagel shop where she works as a cook, Frazier rolled up her sleeves and twisted her stringy, long brown hair into a bun as she recalls her first meditation practice. "It was hard, man," she said as she tapped her pack of Marlboros on the table. "Meditation for me is very, very difficult. I can't even sit still here." During her first meditation, the instructor told Frazier to stay present with the moment, but she couldn't. Her sentence had just been reduced, and she could see the finish line. She didn't know where she would go or how she would get her life together. She tried to stop thinking and focus on her breath. She heard a guard outside yell, "Inmate, get in line!" "Oh my God," she remembered. "I'm in prison." She still can't achieve a clear mind during meditation, she said, but Walpole calms her. He tells her everything is as it should be, and we are all perfect in this moment. Frazier met Walpole at a ceremony at the prison where she vowed to live a wholesome, ethical life. He walked in with his "Obi-Wan Kenobi" robes, his Buddha statues and some incense. He called her name, then whacked a wooden stick and startled her. But it was during the end of the ceremony, when she was supposed to receive a burn on her hand, that Walpole showed his true colors. The department of corrections didn't allow the bum. "It was considered destruction of state property," Frazier said. "I have never in my entire life known such compassion, total compassion, he had in his eyes when he told me that he was taking my burn for me." Walpole burned himself once for Frazier then 11 more times for the other inmates at the ceremony. Two years ago, Walpole visited any prisoner who asked. He bought cars, drove them until they nearly broke down, then traded them for new ones. In three years, he clocked at least 100,000 miles a car. But two years ago, Walpole had stents put in his heart, and his doctor told him he had to cut back on his prison service. Then, about a year ago, Walpole had an aneurysm and came back with three more pieces of metal in his heart. Now Walpole only visits two programs and helps run five others. He has to start paying more attention to himself, he says. The wall of a tiny blood vessel in his heart has stretched and ballooned to the point where it could burst, and he could bleed out before any help could get to him. He doesn't know when it could rupture. It could be tomorrow, or it could be in 10 years. "I have to focus on developing leadership potential so that the place will survive if I don't," Walpole said. Walpole says he will do whatever he can until, as he likes to call it, he stops "sucking air." "I haven't half-stepped any part of my life up 'til now," Walpole said. "No point in starting." K.C. Walpole, a former enlisted Marine and Army officer, teaches meditation to inmates in 25 Florida prisons. $584M spent on research in 2008 FUNDING,from page 1 "With computers, we can design explosives that are safer to handle and more effective," Rogacki said. To receive funding, researchers and their teams often have to send out extensive proposals to the agencies soliciting ideas. "Almost all research gets funded by someone else," Rogacki said. "But it's funded on a competitive basis, and there are a lot of good universities out there." One university is the University of South Florida. Ranked a distant second in the state behind UF, The Tampa Tribune reported the foundation's estimate of about $278 million allocated to research spending at the university. Rogacki welcomes the competition. "I don't view USF or other universities as threats," he said. "I think certainly for the good of the nation, the more researchers we have, the better off we're going to be." Rogacki applies the same mindset to other UF universities, Administration crediting the competitive nature of research funding as creative fuel. "When someone like UCF or USF or FSU or any other university gets better, they force us to get better," Rogacki said. "We welcome their competition, and we appreciate the contribution they make." Charles elected Senate President SENATE, from page 1 "It may be frightening and unfamiliar now," Cavataro said. "It won't always be." Supervisor of Elections Ariana Alfonso stopped by the meeting to go over results from last week's election. Senators approved them by unanimous consent. Once old senators said their goodbyes, the newly-elected senators got down to business. Their first act was to elect new Senate leadership. Unite Party Sen. Ashton Charles was elected Senate President and Unite Party Sen. Naadira Renfroe was elected as Senate President Pro-Tempore. CLAS Sen. Andre Haughton, from the Unite Party, endorsed Renfroe, who represents the sophomore class. Haughton said his reasons for supporting Renfroe extended beyond her resume and work ethic. He said Renfroe would prevent Senate from becoming isolated from the students it represents. "I'm confident that Sen. Renfroe will embody this dream and keep it alive," he said. Unite Party Sophomore Class Sen. Kara Olesky said she supported Charles, who represents District A, because she is a great role model and will work for students.

10, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 7,2009 Frozen yogurt shops to open downtown, near campus 0 NEW STORES INCLUDE TUTTI FRUTTI, SECOND M OCHI. By ESTEE BECK Alligator Contributing Writer Gainesville has a soft spot for frozen yogurt. Two new stores will join Gainesville's bevy of yogurt shops. Florida's first Tutti Frutti, a self-serve frozen yogurt shop, will open at 1232 W University Ave. No information was available about its projected open date, but the location is listed on the company's Web site. The second store, located on the first floor of the new downtown Hampton Inn & Suites, will be Gainesville's second Mochi. One of the managers, Jurel Serrana, said business has been good at the company's Archer Road location, which opened during Summer A. The new store is expected to open in January. Mochi's business hours are noon to midnight every day. According to Serrana, the downtown store will have the same hours, but it may be open later on weekends for clubgoers. While Mochi is expanding, other yogurt shops aren't afraid of the competition. Yogaberry general manager Jennifer Fichter said she expects the store to stay afloat in the flooding market. "Is [the competition] daunting? No, not really," Fichter said. "It's all about what kind of PR you do." Fichter said that Yogaberry's coffee menu and pastry assortments Around make it unique from other Gainesville yogurt shops. She said the shop is trying to keep the customers who loved Deja Brew. Mochi finds its individuality in the environmentally friendliness of its product, Serrana said. The cups and spoons at Mochi are made of plant starch and biodegradable materials. The yogurt machines have an energy-saving cooling system, and some of the decor is made from partially recycled materials. To keep customers coming back for that frozen fix during the cold months, Serrana said Mochi will play around with new flavors and take requests from customers. Serrana said frozen yogurt is a healthy alternative to other desserts. She said new designs for the downtown Mochi are in the making. "I think Mochi is really different," Serrana said. "I think frozen yogurt is going to be here for a while." ON CAMPUS Group holds lecture about free software By KRISTEN BOWE Alligator Contributing Writer About 50 UF students attended Tuesday night's Mind MashUp with laptops in hand ready to learn about opensource software. The event was held by Florida Free Culture in Library West in honor of the the first international Open Access Week, from Oct.19 to Oct. 23, which aims to broaden students' understanding of open access. During the two-hour event, students learned to remix images, music and videos licensed under Creative Commons, an alternative copyrighting system, said Jennifer Griffith, president of Florida Free Culture. Club members demonstrated how to use open source software programs like Audacity, Blender, Inkscape and The GIMP. Griffith, a third-year electrical engineering major, said the club's goal was to raise awareness about the software resources that are available to students. Griffith said the club hoped to "foster a spirit of innovation." Angela Austin, a fourth-year anthropology major, attended the workshop. "We need to increase free software in the way that we communicate and transmit ideas," she said. Austinhopes societyevolves past copyright. "It must come from people using the program, not the company," she said. She said there is no way to avoid open sharing because it's a part of the culture. "It's a digital age," she said.

Sports WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2009 Tebow returns to limited practice THE SENIOR STILL ISN'T CLEARED FOR CONTACT. By PHIL KEGLER Alligator Staff Writer pkegler@alligator org Florida quarterback Tim Tebow returned to practice in a limited role Tuesday after being cleared for non-contact drills. Coach Urban Meyer said Tebow split snaps 50-50 with backup John Brantley, and discussions will continue for the next few days about whether or not Tebow can and should play at LSU on Saturday. "He didn't go full, and it was obviously non-contact," Meyer said. "I'd say he did probably 80 percent of practice. He did well. A little rusty, not really from anything other than that he hasn't played football in over a week." Meyer said Tebow worked out and did some conditioning Sunday and Monday, and a team of experts including trainers, physicians, a neurosurgeon and a neurologist were involved in clearing him to practice. "He looked like Tim out there today," Meyer said. "Obviously he practiced a lot differently than what's going to happen Saturday night.

ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Preseason polls give false sense of upsets in college football Apparently, this is the year of the upset in college football. LI But why? Sure, seven teams ranked in the top 10 of the AP preseason poll already have at least one loss on their records, but what makes these teams considered elite before the season begins? It is the preseason polls that create these notions that some teams are the best in the nation when eventually they will prove they are nothing more than frauds. Every year, a bunch of voters decide which teams are the best in the nation based off A Bobby Callovi Bobby's World bca Ilovi@a Iligator org their performances in the previous season, player turnover in the offseason and their schedules heading into the season. Nowhere in the consideration is how teams have fared so far through the season. Once the teams have been voted to a spot in the rankings, only a loss can significantly drop them from that spot, and only a loss by another team can allow them to leap in the rankings. This makes it hard for a team that has played extremely well in the current year to move up on its own, and God forbid that team loses a game, because it probably will find itself in the back half of the top 25 or out of the poll altogether. But teams like USC and Oklahoma barely fall after losses. Neither team fell out of the top 15 after its early season loss, and USC's defeat came at the hands of unranked Washington. This system makes every season the year of the upset in college football because no one really knows if any of these teams in the preseason top 10 will be as good as they are expected to be. Since 2002, only once have the AP voters been correct in the preseason about which team would be the best in the nation at the end -USC was No. 1 before and after the 2004 season. And the rest of their top 10s have not looked much better. In that same time, 2007 had the most preseason top 10 teams (six) finish there after year's end.

Check out a recap of the week's action at alligatorSports.org. Brantley preps as possible starter vs. LSU By PHIL KEGLER Alligator Staff Writer pkegler@aligator org When Florida's starting quarterback takes the field at Tiger Stadium on Saturday night, he will have gone through a week of prank calls from LSU fans. It's just unclear who "he" will be. While senior Tim Tebow returned to practice Tuesday, his status for UF's game Saturday is still uncertain. LSU fans apparently wanted to take every precaution, so they acquired sophomore John Brantley's cell phone number and have been berating him with calls and text messages. Football Tebow went through a similar thing in the week before the team's 2007 matchup. After scoring a touchdown two years ago, Tebow celebrated by pretending to dial a phone. So far, LSU fans have treated Brantley like an equal off the field, but how will UF's offense change if it is No. 12 and not No. 15 taking the snaps Saturday night? Offensive coordinator Steve Addazio said any alterations would be slight. "He's got a good grasp of the whole offense," Addazio said. "Obviously, like always, we'll always have little things that feature someone's personal strengths -John's a real thrower -that's something you can feature a little bit. The bottom line is he's been trained to run our offense, and he'll run the offense, and he'll do it real well." All of Brantley's playing time so far has come after UF had secured a victory. He has appeared in three of four games this season and completed 22 of 30 passes for 232 yards and four touchdowns, good for a 182.29 passer efficiency rating. If he plays Saturday, he will face a LSU pass defense SEE FOOT, PAGE 19 TEEING OFF WITH BOBBY CALLOVI E The MLB playoffs start today, and I actually feel good about the Yankees' chances, especially against a tired Twins team that played an extra game that went 12 innings. But if the Yankees come up short again, there is always more money to fix the problems. .Rookie WR Michael Crabtree is talking to the 49ers (3-1) again to get a deal done. Apparently, winning has healed all wounds.

18, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 7,2009 Gators will charter after match with Gamecocks 0 THE RETURN TO GAINESVILLE IS UF'S ONLY CHARTER THIS SEASON. By ADAM BERRY Alligator Staff Writer a berry@alligator org While other Southeastern Conference teams have been flying first-class, the Gators have been the class of the league -and saving money in the process. Several other SEC schools have incurred the added expense of chartering flights Mississippi State's volleyball team had its own plane for three full weekends last season, and Kentucky is doing the same this season -but UF has only chartered one flight per season in recent years. "I don't know why they (other programs) make those choices, but at the end of the day, dollars are dollars," said Lynda Tealer, the senior associate athletic director for women's sports. "So you may opt to spend dollars in that way, but then you don't have them to spend on something else." After kicking off a four-match road swing with a rare midweek contest against South Carolina (10-5, 2-4 SEC) in Columbia tonight at 7, No. 6 Florida (11-2, 5-1 SEC) will enjoy the once-in-a-season luxury three other UF sports use regularly: a chartered flight back to Gainesville. Commercial travel has alreadyhad its share of ups and downs for the Gators this year. After sweeping Arkansas on the road on Sept. 20, UF coach Mary Wise said in a radio interview that the team would only make its flight if it won in three sets. "We'd absolutely love to charter every single away match, but it's just not like that," junior opposite hitter Lauren Bledsoe said. "And those regular flights, they work out just great. We make it work. "Sitting here wishing, it just doesn't matter. We've handled it." This weekend, commercial airfare could provide another difficulty for UF. With its next two matches being televised on ESPNU at 7 p.m., the Gators are subject to the network's scheduling. That means their Sunday match at LSU will end too late to catch a flight back that night, so they will have to travel back to Gainesville early Monday morning. "That really is an oddity because I can't think of any other sport or program where there's typically Sunday evening competition," Tealer said. "It just doesn't happen." Although commercial airfare and busing may be harder on the players and coaches, it lightens the financial load on the athletics program. "I think the only benefit for chartering is convenience, which is a legitimate benefit, but that's really the only benefit," Tealer said. "The cost is just so incredibly significant when you have that many competitions." The Gators football, men's basketball and women's basketball teams charter their own flights on a regular basis when necessary. Tealer said the cost simply -outweighs the convenience of chartering flights for other UF sports. Aside from footVolleyball ball and basketball, every V l b team at Florida only charters a return flight for midweek matches or under extenuating circumstances. According to Tealer, the average cost of sending the volleyball team round-trip on commercial flights is around $4,500 to $5,000. The lowest a chartered plane would cost for the same trip is about $25,000. "When you multiply that over the course of the season for all of the teams, it just becomes a really unmanageable amount of money to spend on travel," Tealer said. For the Florida volleyball program, the money saved through busing or flying commercial can be reallocated to paying for coaches, managers, equipment, the training staff or scholarships. Each decision has its benefits and detriments, but the more money available for scholarships, the more Wise and her coaching staff can recruit the best players possible, particularly out-of-state athletes. According to a University Athletic Association expense report, the volleyball program's scholarship budget is the sixth largest of all UF sports, behind football, women's track, women's swimming, women's basketball and soccer. Six of UF's 15 players are from Florida, so the cost of offering scholarships to the nine outof-state players is greater than that of, for example, Florida's baseball program, which has a lower scholarship limit (11.7 to volleyball's 12) and primarily recruits in-state athletes. Despite the lower cost of recruiting, the baseball team operates under the same travel circumstances as the volleyball team -only for midweek competitions or under extenuating circumstances, like getting the studentathletes back from Columbia on Wednesday night in time for class Thursday. "Typically, when they compete on Friday and Sunday -unless something goes bad on that Sunday return, which unfortunately, that happens for a lot of our teams; traveling in and out of Gainesville can sometimes be challenging -but for the most part, they're able to minimize their missed classes," Tealer said. dJourna ism?

UF learns from loss OLE MISS DEFEATED FLORIDA 3-2 ON SUNDAY. By EUGENIO TORRIENS Alligator Writer etorrens@a Iligator org The fall from grace is swift and unforeseen. The UF soccer team's most recent 3-2 double overtime loss to Mississippi on Sunday ushered in the possibility of a new mindset in the Southeastern Conference: the Gators are vulnerable. UF coach Becky Burleigh and her players all echoed the same thing, it's up to them to change other people's perception. "Our players come here to win the SEC and we're certainly not giving up that fight," Burleigh said. "We have too much talent on this team for this thing to not turn around." By tying Mississippi State last Friday, 1-1, UF broke its 22-game SEC regular-season win streak that started Oct. 7, 2007. Sophomore Lindsay Thompson said it was two different teams from the state of Mississippi than the ones the Gators (8-4-1, 2-1-1 SEC) beat last year en route to an 11-0 conference record. "I feel like we have to bounce back and do what we can this weekend to prove that we're still somebody who is going to be reckoned with in the SEC," Thompson said. For a program that has finished first in the SEC the last three years, a tie and loss in consecutive SEC matches is something other conference foes can feed upon. "I think teams have probably gotten a little arrogant because the team that went undefeated last year kind of stumbled this past week," senior Angela Napolitano said. While the loss is a blemish on the record, players tried to take it as a lesson. "I think that it's good in the sense that it humbles us," Napolitano said. "It reminds us that if we don't come out the way we need to, that we can get beat by anybody." Redshirt freshman McKenzie Barney, whose first two college goals came against Vanderbilt, said it reinforced the constant focus the team needs to have. "Nothing worth having is going to come easy at all this season," she said. Soccer "We can't let down for one game, we can't let down for one second." Barney said it doesn't matter how other teams in the conference perceive the Gators, and that it shouldn't affect the way the team executes. She said part of the plan is making sure UF dictates the tempo and plays its fast-paced offense. "Personally I always think well I know -that we're a good team," Barney said. If anything, the team will hope that history repeats itself. The 22game SEC regular-season win streak began after back-to-back losses at Georgia and at Tennessee. If the team has fallen in the SEC totem pole, the climb back up will partly rest on the upperclassmen's experience. "We've been here before," Napolitano said. "We've come back and it's not anything that's out of our reach by any means. FOOT, from page 17 that's third-worst in the Southeastern Conference. Sophomore wide receiver Deonte Thompson, one of the team's best deep options, is expected to play this weekend after missing the last two games. "We've got so many playmakers at this school," Brantley said. "To go in there and see those playmakers in the huddle with you, that gives you confidence." Brantley will also be aided by the nation's top rushing offense. The Gators are averaging 307.5 yards per game behind Tebow and their trio of running backs -Jeff Demps, Chris Rainey and Emmanuel Moody. Each of the three is averaging more than 8 yards per carry. Running backs coach Kenny Carter acknowledged his guys might carry a heavier load if Tebow doesn't play but stressed the importance of throwing the ball. "The passing game is a vital part of what you have to do to be successful in this league," Carter said. "You can't be onedimensional. Us being produclive is huge, but we have to play well at quarterback too." While relatively untested in college, Brantley came to Gainesville as the sixth-best quarterback prospect coming out of high school, according to Rivals.com Now Florida's undefeated record may rest on Brantley's shoulders. "Anytime you don't have a Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff UF sophomore John Brantley is preparing to make his first career start against LSU if Tim Tebow can't play. guy like Tim Tebow who's arguably the best college football player in America -stop right there," Addazio said. "But John Brantley is a hell of a football player. I mean a big-time guy. "We're going to have some wrinkles for John Brantley like we always would, but John Brantley will run our offense and John Brantley will compete. John Brantley would be starting for a lot of teams in this conference right now." kickoff EDITIONS Reach your Target Market before the game! 15% DISCOUNT 15% DISCOUNT For any ON ADVERTISEMENTS RU N advertisement IN 5 OUT OF 7 EDIT rONS that runs prior to DEADLINE FOR SPECIAL is picked up(no WNED OUNT 200 Kickoff Edition and OFFER: changes).

20, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 7,2009 UF TENNIS Embree, Will advance in singles, doubles By GREG LUCA Alligator Writer While Johnny Hamui's attempt to get a second Gator into the men's main draw of the ITA All American Championships came to an unsuccessful end on Tuesday, freshman Lauren Embree was dominant in her first and second round of qualifying and still has a shot at joining Marrit Boonstra in the women's draw. So too does freshman Allie Will, who was selected to compete in the qualifying draw despite a loss in the pre-qualifying tournament. Embree blew out No. 70 Lenka Hojckova of North Carolina State 6-0, 6-1 and followed that up with a 6-4, 6-1 win over No. 52 Liset Brito in her second round match on Tuesday. The win brings Embree to 4-0 in her UF career, with each win coming against a ranked opponent. "Lauren was very aggressive today, and that's something we've been working a lot on in practice," associate head coach Dave Balogh said. Also in action on Tuesday was Will, who by a stroke of luck got selected to play in the qualifying tournament and made the most of her opportunity with wins doubles action for the season. over Anna Redecsi of DePaul "They communicate and work and Denise Dy of Washington. really well together, but whether This wasn't the only action its singles or doubles they're just for the talented so competitive, they always find freshmen on a way to come through," Balogh the day, as they teamed up and won an 8-6 victory over thirdseeded Marta Lesniak and Hamui Ale ks and r a Malyarchikova of SMIU. Will and Embree went down 3-0 early but managed to keep it together and record the comeback victory. This brings UF's team of freshman to 3-0 in said. Also in the women's doubles qualifying draw is the team of Boonstra and Joanna Mather, the tournament's No. 2 seed. This pairing was also victorious Tuesday, besting Vanja Corovic and Stephanie Davison of Texas 8-4.

Only four teams stayed in the top 10 after the season, and three of those preseason top-10 teams were not even ranked by year's end -LSU, Clemson and Auburn. This season, the preseason poll has obviously not gotten off to a good start with four top 10 teams already out of that group. These preseason polls are fun for fans and make it easier for the media to call a season the year of the upset when preseason predictions begin to crumble, but they don't do any good for college football. All they really do is make things harder for teams that enter the season already considered not very good despite not playing a down. A lot of these teams aren't good and were rightfully left out of the preseason polls, but they should at least be given the chance to prove they suck before being labeled as such. In a similar fashion, some of the teams in the preseason polls are top teams, but they should have to prove it on the field, rather than be given an advantage by a bunch of voters who are making guesses.
