AROUND GAINESVILLE

Haunted house doors



creak open today


By HILARY SHEINBAUM
Alligator Contributing Writer

Walt Disney World has fairy-tale prin-
cesses and a haunted house. Now Gainesville
does, too, but with a scary twist.
The Gainesville Junior Chamber of Com-
merce, or Jaycees, will hold its 14th annual
Haunted House at the Alachua County Fair-
grounds starting tonight and ending on Hal-
loween.
In groups of five or six, people will enter
a 1,500-square-foot house in the depths of
the woods and make their way through 13
rooms, numerous hallways and a maze, ac-
cording to Kristen Rabell, Jaycees commu-
nity director and haunted house head chair-
woman.


"I have seen a grown woman wet
her pants, and someone actually
ran out of their shoes."
Kristen Rabell
Jaycees community director

This year's event, The Enchanted Castle,
is inspired by fairy tales and Disney stories
twisted into frightening tales, she said. For
the past three years, the house's themes were
movie-based, asylum-inspired and deco-
rated to resemble the horror movie genre
respectively.
Tickets are $5 in advance and $6 at the
door, cash only. A portion of the funds will

Dorms test shower timers


* THE YULEE AREA PLACED THE

By JENNIFER BATE
Alligator Contributing Writer

When Yulee Area residents take a shower,
they are not alone.
They have shower coaches.
The small, $2.80 timing devices, called
Shower Coaches, are suction-cupped to the
walls of 86 showers in Yulee, Mallory and
Reid, which comprise the Yulee Area.
"I really like them," said Haley Merritt, a
freshman Yulee resident."They really help. I
definitely take a five-minute shower now."
The timers were placed in the showers to

Residence Education.
Sharon Blansett, chairwoman of the
Housing and Residence Education Green
Team, wrote in an e-mail that the program
is designed to educate residents on sustain-
ability issues.
The targeted shower time is five minutes.
Every minute spent showering uses 2.5 gal-
lons of water, so a five-minute shower uses
12.5 gallons.

of water I am using with the timers around,"
Merritt said. "It's something major that

A man was arrested early Thursday
morning for elbowing and pushing a preg-
nant woman during an argument.
Jabaric Bell, who is 6 feet, 3 inches tall
and weighs 225 pounds, was gathering his
things to leave the house he shares with his
girlfriend when they got into an argument
over items that belonged to her, including
sports cards, according to an Alachua Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office report.
She told police that Bell elbowed her


twice and pushed her into the bedroom
wall, according to the report.
Bell told police he was trying to take his
things and leave with his cousin. He said he
did not hit the woman and "pivoted" to get
around her.
The woman told police she was not in-
jured.
Bell said he knew she was 6-months
pregnant and believes the child is his.

Things got worse for the resi-

UF ADMINISTRATION

UF's Board of Trustees receives two new members


BY CAROLYN TILLO
Alligator writer

The Florida Board of Governors ap-
pointed two members to UF's Board of
Trustees, UF's highest governing body, in
a meeting Thursday.
Board of Governors spokesman Bill Ed-
monds said Marshall Criser III, of Coral
Gables, and Carolyn King Roberts, of Oca-
la, will join the board Jan. 6.
"Both appointments for University of


Florida are very strong individuals," Ed-
monds said.
Criser is the president of AT&T Florida
and the son of former UF President Mar-
shall Criser, who served from 1984 to 1989,
Edmonds said.
Roberts also brings business experience
and knowledge of university government.
She owns Roberts Real Estate Inc. and
served as a member on the Florida Board
of Education.
She also served as the chairwoman for


the Board of Governors and is a member of
the Board of Governors.
Edmonds said Rob-
erts' term on the Board
of Governors will end
before she begins serving
her term with the Board
of Trustees.
UF spokesman Steve
Edmonds Orlando said the board's
newly appointed members have strong
ties to the university, and they are well-


respected in the Florida business commu-
nity.
Criser and Roberts will replace board
members Courtney Cunningham and Jo-
elen Merkel.
Gov. Charlie Crist will also appoint two
new members who will start their terms
in January and replace members Roland
Daniels and Earl Powell, Orlando said.
According to a press release, the Board
of Governors made 21 appointments
Thursday for the 11 state institutions.

Two hundred people died try-
ing to escape.
Seventy-two thousand people
were incarcerated for trying to
leave their country.
These facts and others were
pasted upon the panels of a rep-
lica of the Berlin Wall created by
a group of UF students.
More than 100 people gath-
ered in Pugh Hall Thursday night
for the Freedom Without Walls
gala, which commemorated the
20th anniversary of the fall of the
Berlin Wall on Nov. 9, 1989.
"A large group of UF students
collaborated to bring the Berlin
Wall to UF," said Will Hasty, a
German studies professor.
For the past month, German
students and faculty hosted a
film festival, a speech contest and
built and tore down a replica of
the Berlin Wall.
The panels of the UF wall
served as a backdrop behind the
speakers and decorations around


Pugh Hall for the audience to see
as it listened to the many speak-
ers at the event.

The first-place winner, Heath-

the end of her speech, in which
she described her visit to Berlin
and how her parents met there
years ago.
"I was completely blown
away by the emotion displayed
here," psychology and German
sophomore Johanna Meyer said.
Meyer was one of the students
who helped build and paint the
replica.
After the student speeches,
keynote speaker Holger Teschke,
an author and former dramatist
in the Berlin Ensemble Theater
Group, said he still remembers
what he was doing when the wall
fell. He said there was a peaceful
rebellion the night the wall came
down and the world should use
this as an example to help make
it a better place.
"I wasn't expecting a tearjerk-

guess with this the two go hand

Shands offers tour of center


By MELINDA CARSTENSEN
Alligator Contributing Writer

The wait to see the inside of Shands' new-
est building is over.
This weekend the UF Shands Cancer Cen-
ter is opening its doors to the public before it
begins admitting patients on Nov. 1.
The $388 million cancer center, at 1515 SW
Archer Road, will host an open house from 9
a.m. to noon Saturday.
Guests will be able to take tours of the facil-
ity and preview some of its 192 patient rooms.
They will also get to see some of the center's
departments, such as the stem cell lab and the
emergency department, spokesman Jeff Kelly
said.
The center was designed with emphasis
on bringing the outside in, Kelly said, and the
many windows give the building a unique
appearance the hospital is surrounded by


97,000 square feet of glass.
"It's absolutely a sight to see," he said. "It's
not the way your mind's eye would picture a
hospital."
"It's absolutely a sight to see. It's

Visitors can take guided tours of the eight-

photos with UF mascots Albert and Alberta.
Free food and drinks will also be provided.
Construction on the center began in Janu-
ary 2007. Since then, Kelly said, it has been
hard work getting the hospital to this point.
"We're most excited about being able to
showcase the hospital to the people it'll be
serving," he said.

Event organizers expect 2,500 to 3,000
attendees to visit the haunted house over
the course of five days.
UF organizations contributing to the
event include Sigma Phi Lambda Sorority,
UF American Society of Civil Engineers and
UF Fire Emergency Services, Rabell said.
People of all ages can attend the event,
though the attraction may be too scary for
children younger than 8, Rabell said.
During a previous haunted house walk,
a guest hyperventilated and had to be car-


ried out by paramedics.

Barcia: Luck was on my side


PRICE from page 1


And that's just what he did,
sporting a bright orange Gators shirt
topped with an equally spirited hat.
"I have to represent where I'm
from," Barcia said. "I think I even
did a little Gator chomp."
Each morning, competitors are se-
lected from that day's audience. Bar-
cia was weeded out from hundreds
of other potential contestants, acing
the final on-the-spot interview.
"I said, 'I almost feel like a kid in
a candy shop because I can't contain
myself,'" Barcia said. "The average
person's interview lasted two min-
utes. I took five."
Barcia also developed somewhat
of a support group while waiting in
line that morning.
"People were shaking my hand
and saying, 'I know you're going to
get picked,'" he said.
Soon, the overhead lights danced
around the studio and music blasted
into the already-applauding audi-
ence. The announcer, Rich Fields, a
UF graduate, introduced Drew Car-
ey, the show's host.
Barcia was the third name Carey
called, and then it was game time.
"I was ready to go," Barcia said. "I
had no doubt in myself."
Barcia bid and bargained his way
through the show, his eye on the
prizes to come if he made it to the


Showcase Showdown.
"I really wanted to win a trip,"
Barcia said.
When it came time to spin the
wheel for the Showcase Showdown,
although he was not allowed to be
specific, Barcia said luck was on his
side.
"I was just ecstatic," Barcia said.
"I was going crazy. I jumped up into
the air, and I pumped my fist in the
air about five times. I think I broke
my watch."
He was heading to the final round:
The Showcase.
While CBS protocol prohibits Bar-
cia from disclosing the final outcome
of the show, he was allowed to com-
ment on his emotional reaction to the
60-minute game that would, in many
ways, change his life.
"I was sweating," Barcia said.
"There's all this pressure on you. I
can't stress that enough. Everything
happened so fast; you have no time
to really take it in."
As Barcia prepares to graduate in
the spring, currently working part-
time at the UF Athletic Association
as a customer service representative,
his experience on the show has im-
pacted the way he views himself.
"It's made me believe in myself a
lot more," Barcia said. "I believed in
myself. It made me remember to not
doubt the power of going after what
you really want."

6, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2009


Editorial
It's been a busy week at the Alligator (go figure). Just
when we thought exams were over and all was quiet
on the West University Avenue front, another parade
took us by surprise. This time, it was a festival of suck that
hit us like a dump truck loaded with your neighbor's rot-
ten Wu-Tang pumpkin that he carved way too early and
allowed to marinate in the sun...
We now present you with the how-long-until-we-get-
to-melt-into-our-parents'-couches-for-Thanksgiving edi-
tion of...



Darts & Laurels

For some reason, the university thinks it's okay to pe-
nalize all residents on the third floor of Riker Hall for the
mistakes of some jerks whose actions resulted in $150,000
worth of flood damage. If administrators get their way,
each student will pay $3,000 for the Oct. 10 flood. Resi-
dents only pay about $2,200 per semester to live there. We
shoot a way-to-take-the-easy-way-out-again DART at UF,
and we stab a way-to-not-man-up-to-your-actions DART
at the Kevin Costner-wannabes for their awful recreation
of "Waterworld."
Just when you thought a gunshot to the face would,
you know, kill you, 27-year-old Glenn Altman not only
survived but managed to drive himself to the hospital. In
addition to a blood-soaked apartment, police also found
a "small marijuana growing operation." For having crap
luck after having lead embedded in his skull, we give a
it's-a-good-thing-chicks-dig-scars LAUREL to Glenn Alt-
man.
We don't know how or why a wanted Georgia
man stole $6,000 worth of Steel Reserve and cigarettes
from a local Chevron early Wednesday. But we do know
this: Georgia sells 40-ounce beers, and the only way to
drink Steel Reserve is with the bottle duct-taped to your
hands while playing Edward-40-hands. For this, we give
a could-you-at-least-have-gone-for-the-champagne-of-
beers? DART at Oscar Tellez.
Way to "steal" the "reserve"! Ooooohhhhh.
A local CVS manager was arrested Friday and charged
with video voyeurism after a woman found his cell phone
secretly filming in the bathroom. For violating the pri-
vacy rights of dozens of women by filming them while
they peed, we give a hope-you-like-being-watched-when-
you-pee-too DART at possible future inmate Johnathan
Matheny. As if public restrooms weren't gross enough
already.
A local man was arrested Thursday after an apparent
scuffle with his girlfriend, who is six months pregnant.
The 6-foot-3-inch, 225-pound man reportedly elbowed her
twice and pushed her into a wall. In an argument over...
sports cards.
For what looks to be an extreme overreaction, we throw
a you'll-have-no-trouble-getting-on-"Maury" DART at
Jabaric Bell, who admitted that he believes he IS the fa-
ther of the baby.
When police called in the bomb squad to investigate a
suspicious backpack outside the Reitz Union on Monday,
the robot they sent in did a less than stellar job. For the big-
gest technology fail of the week, we throw a gritty, way-
to-drop-the-"bomb" DART at the bomb squad robot for
not only mishandling the potentially explosive backpack
but also for mistaking sand for fabric softener. Looks like
robots aren't good at everything.
That's all, folks. Hope you've got your costume ready
for next weekend, because nobody likes a slutty ghost.

Guest column

Govt. needed for health reform


While I believe that Neal Wheeler has
the kernel of a good idea in his letter
to the editor, he becomes increasingly
more ignorant as the piece goes on. His idea
that the government can't be counted on to fix
everyone's problems is very true. The govern-
ment can't, in fact, fix everything. Perhaps the
government has tried too hard in the past to fix
all the problems in American society, but this
doesn't extend to health care.
First of all, you can't compare health care to
having a bad mortgage, to amassing credit card
debt that can'tbe paid off, to not saving up enough
money for retirement, or to not being able to buy a
new car. All those things are due, in the most part,
to irresponsibility on the part of the consumer.
Health care, however, is not due to irresponsi-
bility, at least for the most part.
Wheeler chooses to focus on the obese and
the smokers of the world, as if they are the only
ones crying out for health care reform. Many of
the people that simply want to be covered want it
because they will/do suffer from genetic diseases,
or other ailments through no fault of their own.
Take Christina Tucker from the Alligator's edi-
torial as an example. She was raped, and she can't
get coverage. Is that her fault? No.
Wheeler says, "You can get in shape or stop


Paul Murty smoking," in response to
Speaking Out the cries for a public op-
tion. What Wheeler doesn't
realize, though, is that it is
more than simply changing to a healthy lifestyle.
Sometimes you need legitimate help because of
things you have no control over.
I'd love to see Wheeler tell people like my
brother, a recent college grad who can't afford
health care, to shape up and buy his own health
care. Wheeler's solution for the poor is that they
qualify for Medicaid, anyway.
The minimum qualifications for Medicaid, ac-
cording to govbenefits.org, are that you must class
as low or very low in the income scale. You must
also be either pregnant, a parent of, or a caretaker
of dependent children younger than 19; be blind;
take care of someone with a disability; or be older
than 65 years of age.
That doesn't sound like my brother, who is 26
and neither blind, nor a guardian, nor disabled.
The health problems people incur during their
lives aren't always the result of irresponsibility,
like the credit card or mortgage problems. Health
care needs legitimate reform, and the government
is legitimately being relied upon to take care of a
huge problem.
Paul Murty is an english sophomore at UF.

Letters to the Editor
Medicaid could fix health care issue
Mr. Wheeler makes an excellent point.
If you can't afford health care, don't go
running to the government to solve your
problems. Just get on Medicaid!
Medicaid is a wonderful little char-
ity that everyone in America contributes
a little money to for the benefit of those
poorest around us. Isn't it wonderful the
things we can do without the govern-
ment in our lives?

Asbestos nothing new on campus
As great as it is to read about our stu-
dent senators feeling "uncomfortable"
regarding the health of hotel guests, I
would like to take this opportunity to
remind our representatives that as resi-
dents of Rawlings Hall we live under
these circumstances every day.
Asbestos has been found in both our
ceilings and piping providing difficulties
for both maintenance and a desperately
needed renovation.
So while you allocate money to the
removal of asbestos in the Reitz hotel
we will just sit tight over here, patiently
waiting our turn. Try not to "fear" for our
health too much.

UF has money to repair Riker Hall
When I saw on Monday that the third
floor of Rinker hall would be required to
pay $3,000 each for damages, I was flab-
bergasted.
Imagine, you're sitting in your dorm
studying, when the sprinklers shoot on.
Your night is now ruined, and the com-
fort the school gives you is a $3,000 bill
for something you didn't even take part
in. While the school should not be re-
sponsible for the entire bill, the students
who were not absent-mindedly kicking
a ball inside a dorm that caused the inci-
dent should not be punished with a bill.
And then I turn the page to see some-
one has proposed implementing a stu-
dent fee to fix the Reitz Union hotel to
make it asbestos free. That's dandy, we
should all get a bill from UF to pay for
a service we take no part in so that the
school doesn't have to pay for it.
I remember seeing somewhere last


year that Bemie Machen has the second-
highest public school salary in the nation,
meanwhile UF is cutting undergraduate
departments.
As much as I love sports and all, this
school is becoming too sports-oriented.
We just spent who knows how many mil-
lions of dollars building a lacrosse field
and soccer field and fixing up Southwest
Rec Center, meanwhile we can't get away
with building a study center. While I love
sports just as much as the next student,
what makes a country strong and inde-
pendent is not sports it's the education
that the population has.

Prof. shouldn't have been reinstated
Good for the anthropology depart-
ment for defending diversity and minori-
ties. What could be more diverse and be a
smaller minority than a reckless-driving
professor who attempts to exchange
drugs for gay sex near a church? Shame
on UF for reinstating such a creeper.

Comedian with Tourette syndrome
mischaracterized
I was severely disappointed in the
representation of Louis Centanni con-
cerning the front-page article. Certain
inaccuracies were statedthat all together
misrepresented not only Louis himself,
but all thosesuffering with Tourette Syn-
drome.
First, subjugating the disease to say-
ingthat the ticks can be controlled is a
gross exaggeration. Louis was sayingthat
through acting, miraculously he can con-
trol his ticks, however he isaware and
mentioned that the ticks are uncontrol-
lable and mostlyunnoticeable to him.
Moreover, I feel that the article complete-
lymisunderstood Louis's objective in giv-
ing the talk. He was not saying thatliving
with Tourette's is "not so bad." He com-
pletely acknowledged thestruggle it was
and is for him concerning his battle with
the public schoolsystem and also every-
day tasks. Louis's point was that life goes
on and that he does not let his disease de-
fine him.

KICKOFF: 7:30 p.m. ET
TV: ESPN


Kyle Maistri is still fuming about
the money he (would have) lost (if we
condoned gambling here in the alliga-
torSports Brand Picks Column but we
don't, so he isn't) because of Washing-
ton last week. And there are few things
that Mike DiFerdinando loves more
than Jake Locker and UW football.
So we thought it would only be ap-
propriate for the two of them to break
down this week's clash between the
Huskies and the Ducks.

WASHINGTON WILL WIN BECAUSE...
This is the week Jake Locker proves to
Kyle Maistri and the rest of the world
he's one of the nation's elite quarter-
backs. The "West Coast Tebow" has
already led the Huskies to three more
wins than last year (they were 0-12)
and has blossomed as a passer un-
der new head coach Steve Sarkisian.
The 6-foot-3, 226-pound junior has
completed 57.2 percent of his passes
this season and has thrown for 1,702
yards and 11 touchdowns. That's
more yards (1,032) and touchdowns
(8) than Gainesville Tebow.
MIKE DiFERDINANDO

OREGON WILL COVER THE -10 POINT
SPREAD BECAUSE... Washington is
simply a mediocre team, at best.
It stands to reason then that DiFer
would like the Huskies, as he is gen-
erally mediocre, at best. Washington
is the most celebrated 3-4 team in the
history of college football, and putting
Jake Locker in the same sentence as Tim
Tebow is criminal.
Unless of course that sentence reads,
"Tim Tebow could have all of his dis-
cernible talents and skills sucked from
his body in a Space Jam-esque manner,
and still the Florida quarterback would
be better than Jake Locker." Locker
would undoubtedly play the goofy Bill
Murray character in such a remake.

UF looks to clean up offense against MSU


* FLORIDA HAS LOST ITS
LAST FOUR IN STARKVILLE.

By MIKE McCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alligator org

Forget Dan Mullen.
When Mullen left Florida for
the head coaching gig at Missis-


sippi State after last season, this
weekend's matchup between the
Gators and Bulldogs gained in-
stant relevance as the battle be-
tween Urban Meyer and his for-
mer sidekick.
But recent events have changed
the game's meaning.
After a lackluster showing last
week against Arkansas, No. 2 Flor-


ida (6-0, 4-0 Southeastern Confer-
ence) has something to prove dur-
ing its trip to Starkville.
The Gators were surpassed by
Alabama for the top spot in the AP
poll, and getting back on track for
a run to a national title takes prec-
edent over the family reunion.
"We won't be thinking about
it while we're playing, but after


Andrew Stanfill / Alligator Staff
Tight end Aaron Hernandez is 22 receiving yards away from topping his output from all of last sea-
son, but he said UF's offense isn't as explosive as it's been in the past.


the game we'll probably go up
to them," tight end Aaron Her-
nandez said. "It won't be weird
because they're an opponent, and
they're in our way."
The Bulldogs (3-4, 1-2 SEC)
don't appear as dangerous as the
Razorbacks, but Florida has lost its
last four trips to Starkville, and re-
peating last week's mistakes (four
fumbles, 3 for 6 in the red zone)
could certainly yield an upset.
Cleaning up that sloppy offen-
sive performance will be a priority.
Although Florida's offense ranks
in the nation's top 11 for rushing,
total yardage, scoring and pass ef-
ficiency, the unit has come under
fire for uncreative play-calling
and poor execution.
Getting receiver Deonte
Thompson more involved in the
passing game is also key, as Her-
nandez and receiver Riley Cooper
have accounted for the majority of
the team's receptions.
There's still room for improve-
ment, but Hernandez doesn't
think the offense should be held to
the same standard as years past.
"I think we're not the offense
that's going to be putting up
points on one-play drives like
[Thompson's 77-yard touchdown
against Arkansas]," he said. "It's
not going to happen that often.
We're a team that's going to pun-
ish the ball, drive it down the field,
run it and use play-actions. I don't
think people should expect us to
just come on the field and score on

Florida had its Ole Miss game; now it needs an Arkansas


t's time to turn back the clocks again.
Last week against Arkansas, Florida
did its best impression of the 2008 Ole
Miss letdown.
UF managed to come through the chal-
lenge unscathed, obviously an improvement
from a year ago.
Now the Gators need to repeat another '08
turning point the week after the letdown
game.
In 2008, this came at Arkansas as Florida
used 21 unanswered points in the fourth
quarter to break open a 38-7 victory.
The scenario sets up well for UF to repeat
such a dominant performance as it prepares
to face a less-than-stellar Southeastern Con-
ference foe with a pretty weak defense in its
way.
Last year, Arkansas finished 72nd in the
nation in total defense and No. 93 in scoring


S defense.
The Mississippi
State defense that will
take the field Saturday
night currently sits at
Phil Kegler 59th in total defense
Phil on the Hill and No. 64 in scoring
defense.
pkegler@alllgator org defense.
Those stats are
buoyed by the fact the
season is only halfway through, and MSU has
had a few cupcake games -Jackson State and
Middle Tennessee to help the numbers.
It still has to face Florida, Alabama and
Arkansas, three of the SEC's top four scoring
offenses.
The Dan Mullen factor is worth a little
something, although Mississippi State's tal-
ent level won't allow Mullen to put his in-
depth knowledge of the Florida offense to


good enough use.
MSU's defense surrendered 30 points to
LSU earlier this season.
The recipe for a breakout game? Fixing the
little things.
After all, as it's been pointed out plenty
of times this week, Florida is just off its stats
from this point a year ago.
But for UF to come anywhere close to
making the offensive leap it made a year ago,
a few specific deficiencies must be cleaned
up.
The Gators are only scoring on 80 percent
of red zone trips, compared to 95.8 percent in
the first six games of 2008.
A big reason is UF's surprisingly high
number of turnovers. Florida finished +22 in
turnover margin last season, good for No. 2
in the nation.

PICKS, from page 13


Oregon, on the other hand, is a team on the up and up.
The Ducks have completely bounced back from a disastrous start after
Boise State and LeGarrette Blount did their best to end their season before
it started. As for covering the 10-point spread? I'm sure Oregon is at least a
touchdown and a field goal better than mediocre, which is more than I can
say for DiFer. KYLE MAISTRI

Now on to the picks!
Still hanging on to first place with a record of 38-31 is Mike "Logistical
Knightmare" DiFerdinando, who has spent the last few weeks planning out
his currently non-existent musical career. We don't want to spoil it, but it
involves skin-tight leather pants, a members only jacket and a Bedazzler.
In second with a record of 36-33 is Mike "I'm going to throw up on your
lap" McCall, who was so upset that he couldn't spend Thursday night in
Tifton, Ga., that he threatened to projectile vomit all over DiFer's bedazzled
leather pants. Or maybe it was the pants that upset his stomach...
Tied with Mike, we have Bobby "I like a teenage boy in uniform" Callovi
and the Gainesville Sun's Ed "The South will rise again" Aschoff. While Bob-
by is probably already painting his chest for the Hoover High football game
Friday night in Birmingham, Ed was undoubtedly disturbed by news that
his beloved Ole Miss is changing one of its fight songs. Now who's going to
confuse him with Dave Chappelle's black blind white supremacist?
Next, with a record of 35-34 we have Kyle "I like my large quantities of
meat late at night" Maistri, who is outraged at the thought of scarfing down
Dreamland's famous ribs first thing in morning.
With a record of 34-35, is Phil "That's classified" Kegler, who is keeping
his LSAT score under lock and key. We'd be embarrassed, too, if we found
out we couldn't go to law school in a country with running water.

The Bulldogs won't be a threat

Gators dominate SEC-leading Tigers


By TYLER JETT
Alligator Writer
tjett@alligator org

The top of the Southeastern Conference
is now muddled.
No. 17 LSU (10-3-3, 6-1-1 SEC) came
into Gainesville on Thursday tied for first
in the SEC, but the Tigers were dominated
by the No. 12 Gators 4-0, and, with just
two games left on the year, the conference
championship will most likely be decided
in the season finale.
UF will host South Carolina, the other
conference leader, Oct. 30.
Coming into Thursday's game, the
Gators found themselves in a must-win
situation.
"How wouldn't it make you focus?"
freshman McKenzie Barney said. "It is the
ultimate competitive situation."
Barney, who was making just her sec-
ond start on the season, kept LSU on its
toes.
After midfielder Angela Napolitano's
low corner kick was deflected into the air
by sophomore Sarah Chapman, an LSU
player botched a clear attempt. The ball
found Barney two yards away from the
goal, and the forward headed it in uncon-
tested in the fifth minute.
"Somebody kept the keeper away,
which was definitely a bonus for me," Bar-
ney said.
Florida added another goal in the 32nd
minute when senior Lauren Hyde served
a free kick into the penalty box that Chap-
man was able to head into the lower left
comer from 15 yards out. The Gators put
the Tigers away early in the second half
when freshman Brooke Thigpen wrestled
the ball from an LSU defender inside the
penalty box and scored from 12 yards out.
"Once we got that third goal, we knew
it was all she wrote," UF coach Becky Bur-
leigh said.
In both of the team's practices this
week, UF focused on shutting down the
LSU attack. The Gators' work was evident
as the Tigers only had one good opportu-
nity, a free kick in the eighth minute that


Steven H. Keys/ Alligator
UF midfielder McKenzie Barney kicks the ball during Florida's 4-0 win over LSU at
James G. Pressly Stadium on Thursday night. Barney scored two goals.


UF goalkeeper Katie Fraine stopped with
her outstretched arms.
Thursday was Breast Cancer Awareness
Night, which hit home for Hyde, who lost
her mother to breast cancer, and Burleigh,
whose mother is a three-time survivor.


"One of my really good friends came
up to me before the game and said, 'Do this
for your mom,'" Hyde said.
But even with the win, the Gators still
need to win out, and their next match is
Sunday at Arkansas (8-5-4, 2-5-2 SEC).


FRIDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2009 U ALLIGATOR, 15




PHIL, from page 13

This fall, the Gators sit at minus 2,
tied for 76th in the nation.
Do I expect UF's fumbling ways to
persist through the whole season?
No, but playing the what-if game for
too long is like continually betting hard
sixes at the craps table.
Eventually, seven hits and all is lost.
If Tebow didn't fumble near the goal
line against Tennessee, Florida might
finish with a 30-6 win.
If UF didn't decide to just play con-
servatively against LSU, the offense
could've done more.
If the Gators didn't fumble twice
within the Razorbacks' 10, they could've
won by several touchdowns and not
been forced to kick a game-winning field
goal.
There is something to be said for a
team being forced to fight through ad-
versity, especially if it comes out the
other side undefeated.
But there is still plenty of risk.
What if those things never get fixed?
What if UF can't stop turning the ball
over? What if teams stack the box and
the passing game lets Florida down?
The Gators' national championship
hopes could use a boost from a great
game by the offense.
Can it reproduce the eye-popping
stats of last season?
Probably not, and UF players and
coaches seem like they're beginning to
realize this.
But with just a little more offense and
a fixing of the fundamentals, the Gators
are a game away from fans wondering
why they were so worried.
Otherwise, Florida will be playing
in a bowl far from Pasadena this win-
ter, asking what if it could turn back the
clocks one more time.

0the independent florida Not officially associated with the University of Florida Published by Campus Communications, Inc of Gainesville, Florida VOLUME 103 ISSUE 44 We Inform. You Decide. AROUND GAINESVILLE Haunted house doors creak open today By HILARY SHEINBAUM Alligator ContributingWriter Walt Disney World has fairy-tale princesses and a haunted house. Now Gainesville does, too, but with a scary twist. The Gainesville Junior Chamber of Commerce, or Jaycees, will hold its 14th annual Haunted House at the Alachua County Fairgrounds starting tonight and ending on Halloween. In groups of five or six, people will enter a 1,500-square-foot house in the depths of the woods and make their way through 13 rooms, numerous hallways and a maze, according to Kristen Rabell, Jaycees community director and haunted house head chairwoman. "I have seen a grown woman wet her pants, and someone actually ran out of their shoes." Kristen Rabell Jaycees community director This year's event, The Enchanted Castle, is inspired by fairy tales and Disney stories twisted into frightening tales, she said. For the past three years, the house's themes were movie-based, asylum-inspired and decorated to resemble the horror movie genre respectively. Tickets are $5 in advance and $6 at the door, cash only. A portion of the funds will SEE HAUNTED, PAGE 5 Dorms test shower timers 0 THE YULEE AREA PLACED THE DEVICES IN 86 SHOWERS. By JENNIFER BATE Alligator ContributingWriter When Yulee Area residents take a shower, they are not alone. They have shower coaches. The small, $2.80 timing devices, called Shower Coaches, are suction-cupped to the walls of 86 showers in Yulee, Mallory and Reid, which comprise the Yulee Area. "I really like them," said Haley Merritt, a freshman Yulee resident."They really help. I definitely take a five-minute shower now." The timers were placed in the showers to help save water and are sponsored by the committee that oversees sustainability efforts within the Department of Housing and Residence Education. Sharon Blansett, chairwoman of the Housing and Residence Education Green Team, wrote in an e-mail that the program is designed to educate residents on sustainability issues. The targeted shower time is five minutes. Every minute spent showering uses 2.5 gallons of water, so a five-minute shower uses 12.5 gallons. "I'm a lot more conscious of the amount of water I am using with the timers around," Merritt said.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2009 U ALLIGATOR, 3 UF ADMINISTRATION UF's Board of Trustees receives two new members BY CAROLYN TILLO Alligator writer The Florida Board of Governors appointed two members to UF's Board of Trustees, UF's highest governing body, in a meeting Thursday. Board of Governors spokesman Bill Edmonds said Marshall Criser III, of Coral Gables, and Carolyn King Roberts, of Ocala, will join the board Jan. 6. "Both appointments for University of Florida are very strong individuals," Edmonds said. Criser is the president of AT&T Florida and the son of former UF President Marshall Criser, who served from 1984 to 1989, Edmonds said. Roberts also brings business experience and knowledge of university government. She owns Roberts Real Estate Inc. and served as a member on the Florida Board of Education. She also served as the chairwoman for the Board of Governors and is a member of the Board of Governors. Edmonds said Roberts' term on the Board of Governors will end before she begins serving her term with the Board of Trustees. UF spokesman Steve Edmonds Orlando said the board's newly appointed members have strong ties to the university, and they are wellrespected in the Florida business community. Criser and Roberts will replace board members Courtney Cunningham and Joelen Merkel. Gov. Charlie Crist will also appoint two new members who will start their terms in January and replace members Roland Daniels and Earl Powell, Orlando said. According to a press release, the Board of Governors made 21 appointments Thursday for the 11 state institutions. SFC students raise awareness of carbon dioxide emissions 0 RALLY BEGINS SATURDAY.

By JOEY FLECHAS Alligator Contributing Writer Members of UF's Model United Nations and students linked themselves through their support of global cooperation among nations Thursday. In celebration of United Nations Day, students added links to a chain, which symbolized their support of global cooperation to help developing nations on the Plaza of the Americas. Inspiration for the activity's theme came from one of the U.N.'s Millennium Development Goals, which is to help nations that are still developing -like third world countries -succeed. Model U.N. member and UF senior Stephanie Loy said the event was about raising awareness and solidarity. "We are advocating coming together for one cause," she said. Students commemorate fall of Berlin Wal MORE THAN 100 CAME TO THE EVENT IN PUGH HALL. By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN Alligator Contributing Writer Two hundred people died trying to escape. Seventy-two thousand people were incarcerated for trying to leave their country. These facts and others were pasted upon the panels of a replica of the Berlin Wall created by a group of UF students. More than 100 people gathered in Pugh Hall Thursday night for the Freedom Without Walls gala, which commemorated the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall on Nov. 9, 1989. "A large group of UF students collaborated to bring the Berlin Wall to UF," said Will Hasty, a German studies professor. For the past month, German students and faculty hosted a film festival, a speech contest and built and tore down a replica of the Berlin Wall. The panels of the UF wall served as a backdrop behind the speakers and decorations around Pugh Hall for the audience to see as it listened to the many speakers at the event. The speakers touched on the to commemorate the event. importance of the wall's fall to German studies professor Germany and how important it is Franz Futterknecht introduced Matt Tripp/ Alligator Staff Holger Teschke speaks at the Freedom Without Walls event inside Pugh Hall Thursday night, celebrating the anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. Teschke is a former dramatist in the Berlin Ensemble Theater Group and is now a visiting professor at Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts. Students could write their names, where they're from and even a quote on slips of colored paper. The slips were stapled together to form a chain of support that snaked along the front of the table. "We are advocating coming together for one cause." Stephanie Loy Model UN, member Yellow, green, brown, orange and blue names formed a chain more than 120 links long. UF junior Andrew Scheuermann said he liked the idea of Model U.N. bringing awareness to global issues. "I think it's a cool organization promoting international thinking," he said. Although the organization observed U.N. Day Thursday, the actual international holiday is Saturday. I with gala the winners of the speech contest, and the first-, secondand thirdplace winners each gave his or her speech again. The first-place winner, Heather Lear, started to tear up toward the end of her speech, in which she described her visit to Berlin and how her parents met there years ago. "I was completely blown away by the emotion displayed here," psychology and German sophomore Johanna Meyer said. Meyer was one of the students who helped build and paint the replica. After the student speeches, keynote speaker Holger Teschke, an author and former dramatist in the Berlin Ensemble Theater Group, said he still remembers what he was doing when the wall fell. He said there was a peaceful rebellion the night the wall came down and the world should use this as an example to help make it a better place. "I wasn't expecting a tearjerker, Meyer said. "I was expecting more of a celebration, but I guess with this the two go hand in hand."

There are friendly reminders stuck to the residence hall walls. Signs were posted to remind students to conserve water while brushing their teeth and shaving. A student can save three gallons of water each day by her teeth, and an additional three gallons when shaving. Runny toilets, leaky faucets and leaky showers can each waste more than 10 gallons per day if they are not reported. There are about 520 residents living in the Yulee Area.

"I did see that someone stuck one of the shower timers next to a toilet. That was kind of funny." The Green Team hopes to spread the conservation program to other residence halls.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2009 U ALLIGATOR, 5 LOCAL NEWS Shands offers tour of center By MELINDA CARSTENSEN Alligator Contributing Writer The wait to see the inside of Shands'newest building is over. This weekend the UF Shands Cancer Center is opening its doors to the public before it begins admitting patients on Nov. 1. The $388 million cancer center, at 1515 SW Archer Road, will host an open house from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday. Guests will be able to take tours of the facility and preview some of its 192 patient rooms. They will also get to see some of the center's departments, such as the stem cell lab and the emergency department, spokesman Jeff Kelly said. The center was designed with emphasis on bringing the outside in, Kelly said, and the many windows give the building a unique appearance -the hospital is surrounded by 97,000 square feet of glass. "It's absolutely a sight to see," he said. "It's not the way your mind's eye would picture a hospital." "It's absolutely a sight to see. It's not the way your mind's eye would picture a hospital." Jeff Kelly UF Shands Cancer Center spokesman Visitors can take guided tours of the eightstory, 500,000-square-foot building and take photos with UF mascots Albert and Alberta. Free food and drinks will also be provided. Construction on the center began in January 2007. Since then, Kelly said, it has been hard work getting the hospital to this point. "We're most excited about being able to showcase the hospital to the people it'll be serving," he said. Guests have been scared, wet pants HAUNTED, from page l be donated to The American Kidney Foundation. Event organizers expect 2,500 to 3,000 attendees to visit the haunted house over the course of five days. UF organizations contributing to the event include Sigma Phi Lambda Sorority, UF American Society of Civil Engineers and UF Fire Emergency Services, Rabell said. People of all ages can attend the event, though the attraction may be too scary for children younger than 8, Rabell said. During a previous haunted house walk, a guest hyperventilated and had to be carnied out by paramedics. "I have seen a grown woman wet her pants, and someone actually ran out of their shoes," Rabell said. "It's pretty funny to see senior football players from Eastside [High School] run out screamAround ing like 4-year-old girls." Gainesville The haunted house will be open from 7:30 p.m. to 12 a.m. tonight, Saturday and Oct. 30. On Thursday, it will be open from 7:30 p.m. to 11 p.m., and on Halloween, it will be open from 7:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. For advance tickets or additional information, e-mail info@gainesvillejaycees.com or call 352-213-6760. Barcia: Luck was on my side P RICEfrom page 1 And that's just what he did, sporting a bright orange Gators shirt topped with an equally spirited hat. "I have to represent where I'm from," Barcia said. "I think I even did a little Gator chomp." Each morning, competitors are selected from that day's audience. Barcia was weeded out from hundreds of other potential contestants, acing the final on-the-spot interview. "I said, 'I almost feel like a kid in a candy shop because I can't contain myself,"' Barcia said. "The average person's interview lasted two minutes. I took five." Barcia also developed somewhat of a support group while waiting in line that morning. "People were shaking my hand and saying, 'I know you're going to get picked,"' he said. Soon, the overhead lights danced around the studio and music blasted into the already-applauding audience. The announcer, Rich Fields, a UF graduate, introduced Drew Carey, the show's host. Barcia was the third name Carey called, and then it was game time. "I was ready to go," Barcia said. "I had no doubt in myself." Barcia bid and bargained his way through the show, his eye on the prizes to come if he made it to the Showcase Showdown. "I really wanted to win a trip," Barcia said. When it came time to spin the wheel for the Showcase Showdown, although he was not allowed to be specific, Barcia said luck was on his side. "I was just ecstatic," Barcia said. "I was going crazy. I jumped up into the air, and I pumped my fist in the air about five times. I think I broke my watch." He was heading to the final round: The Showcase. While CBS protocol prohibits Barcia from disclosing the final outcome of the show, he was allowed to comment on his emotional reaction to the 60-minute game that would, in many ways, change his life. "I was sweating," Barcia said. "There's all this pressure on you. I can't stress that enough. Everything happened so fast; you have no time to really take it in." As Barcia prepares to graduate in the spring, currently working parttime at the UF Athletic Association as a customer service representative, his experience on the show has impacted the way he views himself. "It's made me believe in myself a lot more," Barcia said. "I believed in myself. It made me remember to not doubt the power of going after what you really want."

6, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2009 It's been a busy week at the Alligator (go figure). Just when we thought exams were over and all was quiet on the West University Avenue front, another parade took us by surprise. This time, it was a festival of suck that hit us like a dump truck loaded with your neighbor's rotten Wu-Tang pumpkin that he carved way too early and allowed to marinate in the sun. We now present you with the how-long-until-we-getto-melt-into-our-parents'-couches-for-Thanksgiving edition of. Darts & Laurels For some reason, the university thinks it's okay to penalize all residents on the third floor of Riker Hall for the mistakes of some jerks whose actions resulted in $150,000 worth of flood damage. If administrators get their way, each student will pay $3,000 for the Oct. 10 flood. Residents only pay about $2,200 per semester to live there. We shoot a way-to-take-the-easy-way-out-again DART at UF, and we stab a way-to-not-man-up-to-your-actions DART at the Kevin Costner-wannabes for their awful recreation of "Waterworld." Just when you thought a gunshot to the face would, you know, kill you, 27-year-old Glenn Altman not only survived but managed to drive himself to the hospital. In addition to a blood-soaked apartment, police also found a "small marijuana growing operation." For having crap luck after having lead embedded in his skull, we give a it's-a-good-thing-chicks-dig-scars LAUREL to Glenn Altman. We don't know how -or why -a wanted Georgia man stole $6,000 worth of Steel Reserve and cigarettes from a local Chevron early Wednesday. But we do know this: Georgia sells 40-ounce beers, and the only way to drink Steel Reserve is with the bottle duct-taped to your hands while playing Edward-40-hands. For this, we give a could-you-at-least-have-gone-for-the-champagne-ofbeers? DART at Oscar Tellez. Way to "steal" the "reserve"! Ooooohhhhh. A local CVS manager was arrested Friday and charged with video voyeurism after a woman found his cell phone secretly filming in the bathroom. For violating the privacy rights of dozens of women by filming them while they peed, we give a hope-you-like-being-watched-whenyou-pee-too DART at possible future inmate Johnathan Matheny. As if public restrooms weren't gross enough already. A local man was arrested Thursday after an apparent scuffle with his girlfriend, who is six months pregnant. The 6-foot-3-inch, 225-pound man reportedly elbowed her twice and pushed her into a wall. In an argument over. sports cards. For what looks to be an extreme overreaction, we throw a you'll-have-no-trouble-getting-on-"Maury" DART at Jabaric Bell, who admitted that he believes he IS the father of the baby. When police called in the bomb squad to investigate a suspicious backpack outside the Reitz Union on Monday, the robot they sent in did a less than stellar job. For the biggest technology fail of the week, we throw a gritty, wayto-drop-the-"bomb" DART at the bomb squad robot for not only mishandling the potentially explosive backpack but also for mistaking sand for fabric softener. Looks like robots aren't good at everything. That's all, folks.

Apparently it is becoming common practice around campus for students and bystanders to leave suspicious-looking backpacks lying around public areas and for the Gainesville Police Department bomb squad to respond accordingly. Or at least that's the message UF administration is sending when it shut down part of the Reitz Union for almost an entire day to a bomb threat but failed to utilize the emergency notification system it touts each year as crucial to our safety. It seems that the administration either doesn't consider bomb threats serious enough threats to notify us or it simply is so inefficient at running things that it failed at sending out a simple text message and/or email on its emergency notification system. But seeing as these are many of the same administrators who argued the addition of minus grades to our grading scale would magically "raise" the overall GPAs of UF students, I am leaning toward the second option. Regardless, there are two reasons this failure should go corrected in the event of a similar incidence. Most importantly, it is flat-out dangerous. Thousands of students use the Reitz Union each and every day for various reasons like studying, eating and visiting the Career Resource Center. By not notifying students that a large portion of the union is shut down, there are two negative impacts. First, students take a significant amount of time out of their days to travel over to the union only to get kicked out or re-routed. Second, and even worse, the situation becomes potentially even more dangerous when a glut of students is left hanging around a potential bomb. The second major reason why UF needs to actually utilize its emergency notification system in instances like this is because it is Kyle Robisch simply annoying when the univerletters@alligatororg sity doesn't. With spring registration just around the corner, ISIS will surely be asking all of us to verify our emergency contact information. If UF thinks being able to actually e-mail and/or text us in potentially dangerous situations is important enough to prevent us from registering for classes, then use it. But when I drove past the union twice earlier this week and had no idea either time why it was blockaded completely, despite having my phone and e-mail open all day, there arises a major issue. And if you are lucky enough to have actually received one of the many test text messages or e-mails sent out by the administrators of the system, you know it works, just like I do. So a question arises: How much does student safety have to be endangered before we are notified? If a bomb threat at the heart of campus doesn't pass that test, then does an armed gunman roaming around campus qualify? These are all questions students are left wondering about after Monday's debacle. Hopefully we all find out before it is too late. Kyle Robisch is a political science and economics junior.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2009 U ALLIGATOR, 7 "* 1 Copyrighted -a ,Syndicated Coitent Available from Commercial News Providers e r Guest column Govt. needed for health reform While I believe that Neal Wheeler has the kernel of a good idea in his letter to the editor, he becomes increasingly more ignorant as the piece goes on. His idea that the government can't be counted on to fix everyone's problems is very true. The government can't, in fact, fix everything. Perhaps the government has tried too hard in the past to fix all the problems in American society, but this doesn't extend to health care. First of all, you can't compare health care to having a bad mortgage, to amassing credit card debt that can'tbe paid off, to not saving up enough money for retirement, or to not being able to buy a new car. All those things are due, in the most part, to irresponsibility on the part of the consumer. Health care, however, is not due to irresponsibility, at least for the most part. Wheeler chooses to focus on the obese and the smokers of the world, as if they are the only ones crying out for health care reform. Many of the people that simply want to be covered want it because they will/do suffer from genetic diseases, or other ailments through no fault of their own. Take Christina Tucker from the Alligator's editorial as an example. She was raped, and she can't get coverage. Is that her fault? No. Wheeler says, "You can get in shape or stop Paul Murty smoking," in response to SpeakingOut the cries for a public opSpea king Out__ tion. What Wheeler doesn't realize, though, is that it is more than simply changing to a healthy lifestyle. Sometimes you need legitimate help because of things you have no control over. I'd love to see Wheeler tell people like my brother, a recent college grad who can't afford health care, to shape up and buy his own health care. Wheeler's solution for the poor is that they qualify for Medicaid, anyway. The minimum qualifications for Medicaid, according to govbenefits.org, are that you must class as low or very low in the income scale. You must also be either pregnant, a parent of, or a caretaker of dependent children younger than 19; be blind; take care of someone with a disability; or be older than 65 years of age. That doesn't sound like my brother, who is 26 and neither blind, nor a guardian, nor disabled. The health problems people incur during their lives aren't always the result of irresponsibility, like the credit card or mortgage problems. Health care needs legitimate reform, and the government is legitimately being relied upon to take care of a huge problem. Paul Murty is an english sophomore at UF. Letters to the Editor Medicaid could fix health care issue Mr. Wheeler makes an excellent point. If you can't afford health care, don't go running to the government to solve your problems. Just get on Medicaid! Medicaid is a wonderful little charity that everyone in America contributes a little money to for the benefit of those poorest around us. Isn't it wonderful the things we can do without the government in our lives? Chad Kimes Gainesville Resident Asbestos nothing new on campus As great as it is to read about our student senators feeling "uncomfortable" regarding the health of hotel guests, I would like to take this opportunity to remind our representatives that as residents of Rawlings Hall we live under these circumstances every day. Asbestos has been found in both our ceilings and piping providing difficulties for both maintenance and a desperately needed renovation. So while you allocate money to the removal of asbestos in the Reitz hotel we will just sit tight over here, patiently waiting our turn. Try not to "fear" for our health too much. Billy Owen UFstudent UF has money to repair Riker Hall When I saw on Monday that the third floor of Rinker hall would be required to pay $3,000 each for damages, I was flabbergasted. Imagine, you're sitting in your dorm studying, when the sprinklers shoot on. Your night is now ruined, and the comfort the school gives you is a $3,000 bill for something you didn't even take part in. While the school should not be responsible for the entire bill, the students who were not absent-mindedly kicking a ball inside a dorm that caused the incident should not be punished with a bill. And then I turn the page to see someone has proposed implementing a student fee to fix the Reitz Union hotel to make it asbestos free. That's dandy, we should all get a bill from UF to pay for a service we take no part in so that the school doesn't have to pay for it. I remember seeing somewhere last year that Bernie Machen has the secondhighest public school salary in the nation, meanwhile UF is cutting undergraduate departments. As much as I love sports and all, this school is becoming too sports-oriented. We just spent who knows how many millions of dollars building a lacrosse field and soccer field and fixing up Southwest Rec Center, meanwhile we can't get away with building a study center. While I love sports just as much as the next student, what makes a country strong and independent is not sports -it's the education that the population has. Chris Moody Gainesville resident U U Prof. shouldn't have been reinstated Good for the anthropology department for defending diversity and minorities. What could be more diverse and be a smaller minority than a reckless-driving professor who attempts to exchange drugs for gay sex near a church? Shame on UF for reinstating such a creeper. Chris Marth 4AG U U Comedian with Tourette syndrome mischaracterized I was severely disappointed in the representation of Louis Centanni concerning the front-page article. Certain inaccuracies were statedthat all together misrepresented not only Louis himself, but all thosesuffering with Tourette Syndrome. First, subjugating the disease to sayingthat the ticks can be controlled is a gross exaggeration. Louis was sayingthat through acting, miraculously he can control his ticks, however he isaware and mentioned that the ticks are uncontrollable and mostlyunnoticeable to him. Moreover, I feel that the article completelymisunderstood Louis's objective in giving the talk. He was not saying thatliving with Tourette's is "not so bad." He completely acknowledged thestruggle it was and is for him concerning his battle with the public schoolsystem and also everyday tasks. Louis's point was that life goes on and that he does not let his disease define him.

Sports FRIDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2009 ALLIGATOR www.allIigator.org/sports Picks Column SITE: Davis Wade Stadium (cap. 55,082) KICKOFF: 7:30 p.m. ET TV: ESPN Kyle Maistri is still fuming about the money he (would have) lost (if we condoned gambling here in the alligatorSports Brand Picks Column but we don't, so he isn't) because of Washington last week. And there are few things that Mike DiFerdinando loves more than Jake Locker and UW football. So we thought it would only be appropriate for the two of them to break down this week's clash between the Huskies and the Ducks. WASHINGTON WILL WIN BECAUSE. This is the week Jake Locker proves to Kyle Maistri and the rest of the world he's one of the nation's elite quarterbacks. The "West Coast Tebow" has already led the Huskies to three more wins than last year (they were 0-12) and has blossomed as a passer under new head coach Steve Sarkisian. The 6-foot-3, 226-pound junior has completed 57.2 percent of his passes this season and has thrown for 1,702 yards and 11 touchdowns. That's more yards (1,032) and touchdowns (8) than Gainesville Tebow. -MIKE DiFERDINANDO OREGON WILL COVER THE -10 POINT SPREAD BECAUSE. Washington is simply a mediocre team, at best. It stands to reason then that DiFer would like the Huskies, as he is generally mediocre, at best. Washington is the most celebrated 3-4 team in the history of college football, and putting Jake Locker in the same sentence as Tim Tebow is criminal. Unless of course that sentence reads, "Tim Tebow could have all of his discernible talents and skills sucked from his body in a Space Jam-esque manner, and still the Florida quarterback would be better than Jake Locker." Locker would undoubtedly play the goofy Bill Murray character in such a remake. SEE PICKS, PAGE 14 UF looks to clean up offense against MSU 0 FLORIDA HAS LOST ITS LAST FOUR IN STARKVILLE. By MIKE McCALL Alligator Staff Writer m mcca ll@a Iligator org Forget Dan Mullen. When Mullen left Florida for the head coaching gig at Mississippi State after last season, this weekend's matchup between the Gators and Bulldogs gained instant relevance as the battle between Urban Meyer and his former sidekick. But recent events have changed the game's meaning. After a lackluster showing last week against Arkansas, No.2 Florida (6-0, 4-0 Southeastern Conference) has something to prove during its trip to Starkville. The Gators were surpassed by Alabama for the top spot in the AP poll, and getting back on track for a run to a national title takes precedent over the family reunion. "We won't be thinking about it while we're playing, but after -{ Andrew Stanfill / Alligator Staff Tight end Aaron Hernandez is 22 receiving yards away from topping his output from all of last season, but he said UF's offense isn't as explosive as it's been in the past. the game we'll probably go up to them," tight end Aaron Hernandez said. "It won't be weird because they're an opponent, and they're in our way." The Bulldogs (3-4, 1-2 SEC) don't appear as dangerous as the Razorbacks, but Florida has lost its last four trips to Starkville, and repeating last week's mistakes (four fumbles, 3 for 6 in the red zone) could certainly yield an upset. Cleaning up that sloppy offensive performance willbe a priority. Although Florida's offense ranks in the nation's top 11 for rushing, total yardage, scoring and pass efficiency, the unit has come under fire for uncreative play-calling and poor execution. Getting receiver Deonte Thompson more involved in the passing game is also key, as Hernandez and receiver Riley Cooper have accounted for the majority of the team's receptions. There's still room for improvement, but Hernandez doesn't think the offense should be held to the same standard as years past. "I think we're not the offense that's going to be putting up points on one-play drives like [Thompson's 77-yard touchdown against Arkansas]," he said. "It's not going to happen that often. We're a team that's going to punish the ball, drive it down the field, run it and use play-actions. I don't think people should expect us to just come on the field and score on SEE FOOTBALL, PAGE 14 Florida had its Ole Miss game; now it needs an Arkansas t's time to turn back the clocks again. defense. good enough use.

In 2008, this came at Arkansas as Florida used 21 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to break open a 38-7 victory. The scenario sets up well for UF to repeat such a dominant performance as it prepares to face a less-than-stellar Southeastern Conference foe with a pretty weak defense in its way. Last year, Arkansas finished 72nd in the nation in total defense and No. 93 in scoring buoyed by the fact the season is only halfway through, and MSU has had a few cupcake games -Jackson State and Middle Tennessee -to help the numbers. It still has to face Florida, Alabama and Arkansas, three of the SEC's top four scoring offenses. The Dan Mullen factor is worth a little something, although Mississippi State's talent level won't allow Mullen to put his indepth knowledge of the Florida offense to making the offensive leap it made a year ago, a few specific deficiencies must be cleaned up. The Gators are only scoring on 80 percent of red zone trips, compared to 95.8 percent in the first six games of 2008. A big reason is UF's surprisingly high number of turnovers. Florida finished +22 in turnover margin last season, good for No. 2 in the nation.

And Mullen should be able to PICKS, from page 13 Oregon, on the other hand, is a team on the up and up. The Ducks have completely bounced back from a disastrous start after Boise State and LeGarrette Blount did their best to end their season before it started. As for covering the 10-point spread? I'm sure Oregon is at least a touchdown and a field goal better than mediocre, which is more than I can say for DiFer. -KYLE MAISTRI Now on to the picks! Still hanging on to first place with a record of 38-31 is Mike "Logistical Knightmare" DiFerdinando, who has spent the last few weeks planning out his currently non-existent musical career. We don't want to spoil it, but it involves skin-tight leather pants, a members only jacket and a Bedazzler. In second with a record of 36-33 is Mike "I'm going to throw up on your lap" McCall, who was so upset that he couldn't spend Thursday night in Tifton, Ga., that he threatened to projectile vomit all over DiFer's bedazzled leather pants. Or maybe it was the pants that upset his stomach. Tied with Mike, we have Bobby "I like a teenage boy in uniform" Callovi and the Gainesville Sun's Ed "The South will rise again" Aschoff. While Bobby is probably already painting his chest for the Hoover High football game Friday night in Birmingham, Ed was undoubtedly disturbed by news that his beloved Ole Miss is changing one of its fight songs. Now who's going to confuse him with Dave Chappelle's black blind white supremacist? Next, with a record of 35-34 we have Kyle "I like my large quantities of meat late at night" Maistri, who is outraged at the thought of scarfing down Dreamland's famous ribs first thing in morning. With a record of 34-35, is Phil "That's classified" Kegler, who is keeping his LSAT score under lock and key.

Not far behind with a record of 30-39 is the Florida Times-Union's Mike "Kids pick the damndest games" DiRocco, who for the second time this year defaulted to the favorites. He's too old to stay up for the West Coast games. With a record of 27-42, it's the Miami Herald's Joe "I've got a fever" Goodman, whose only question to offensive coordinator Steve Addazio was about MSU fans' cowbells. He's not afraid to ask the tough questions. And in dead-last place with a piss-poor record of 22-48 is the Palm Beach Post's Ben "Was that Chandler or Miley on stage?" Volin, who embarrassingly tried to hit on Parsons after mistaking him for the underage teen pop star he loves so much.

UF SOCCER Gators dominate SEC-leading Tigers By TYLER JETT Alligator Writer tjett@alligator org The top of the Southeastern Conference is now muddled. No. 17 LSU (10-3-3, 6-1-1 SEC) came into Gainesville on Thursday tied for first li_ in the SEC, but the Tigers were dominated by the No. 12 Gators 4-0, and, with just two games left on the year, the conference championship will most likely be decided in the season finale. UF will host South Carolina, the other conference leader, Oct. 30. Coming into Thursday's game, the Gators found themselves in a must-win situation. "How wouldn't it make you focus?" freshman McKenzie Barney said. "It is the ultimate competitive situation." Barney, who was making just her second start on the season, kept LSU on its toes. After midfielder Angela Napolitano's low corner kick was deflected into the air by sophomore Sarah Chapman, an LSU player botched a clear attempt. The ball found Barney two yards away from the goal, and the forward headed it in uncontested in the fifth minute. "Somebody kept the keeper away, which was definitely a bonus for me," Barney said. Florida added another goal in the 32nd minute when senior Lauren Hyde served a free kick into the penalty box that Chapman was able to head into the lower left corner from 15 yards out. The Gators put the Tigers away early in the second half when freshman Brooke Thigpen wrestled the ball from an LSU defender inside the Steven H. Keys/ Alligator penalty box and scored from 12 yards out. UF midfielder McKenzie Barney kicks the ball during Florida's 4-0 win over LSU at "Once we got that third goal, we knew James G. Pressly Stadium on Thursday night. Barney scored two goals. it was all she wrote," UF coach Becky BurUF goalkeeper Katie Fraine stopped with "One of my really good friends came leigh said. her outstretched arms. up to me before the game and said,Do this week, Ut fo used on stt dracices the Thursday was Breast Cancer Awareness for your mom,"' Hyde said.

The Gators' work was evident Night, which hit home for Hyde, who lost But even with the win, the Gators still as the Tigers only had one good opportuher mother to breast cancer, and Burleigh, need to win out, and their next match is nity, a free kick in the eighth minute that whose mother is a three-time survivor.

Do I expect UF's fumbling ways to persist through the whole season? No, but playing the what-if game for too long is like continually betting hard sixes at the craps table. Eventually, seven hits and all is lost. If Tebow didn't fumble near the goal line against Tennessee, Florida might finish with a 30-6 win. If UF didn't decide to just play conservatively against LSU, the offense could've done more. If the Gators didn't fumble twice within the Razorbacks'10, they could've won by several touchdowns and not been forced to kick a game-winning field goal. There is something to be said for a team being forced to fight through adversity, especially if it comes out the other side undefeated. But there is still plenty of risk. What if those things never get fixed? What if UF can't stop turning the ball over? What if teams stack the box and the passing game lets Florida down? The Gators' national championship hopes could use a boost from a great game by the offense. Can it reproduce the eye-popping stats of last season? Probably not, and UF players and coaches seem like they're beginning to realize this. But with just a little more offense and a fixing of the fundamentals, the Gators are a game away from fans wondering why they were so worried. Otherwise, Florida will be playing in a bowl far from Pasadena this winter, asking what if it could turn back the clocks one more time.
