Skimmer victims turn



to banks for advice


* WOMAN USED CREDIT CARD AT
GAS STATION WHERE SKIMMERS
WERE DISCOVERED.

By ALEXANDER KLAUSNER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Liz woke up one morning to a voicemail
on her phone.
The call was from her bank, USAA, notify-
ing her that her account had suspicious charg-
es on it and was flagged for fraud.
She checked her statements and discovered
two fraudulent purchases, each for more than
$100 at a gas station in Tampa.
But Liz hadn't been in Tampa. She was
asleep in her Gainesville residence when the


charges were made.
Liz, who requested her last name not be
used, is just one of the unknown number of
Gainesville residents who had their credit
card information saved onto a gas-pump
skimmer and downloaded via Bluetooth by
identity bandits.
The 25-year-old said she frequently bought
gas from the Kangaroo station at 3424 SW Wil-
liston Road, where two skimmers were found
on the weekend of July 24.
Before the charges appeared, the last pur-
chase made with her card was gas from that
station, she said.
She responded by calling the bank and dis-
cussing the problem with USAA's fraud de-
partment. After about a week, she was able to

2,900 grads to walk

More than 165,000 credit hours.
That's about how many credits
were taken by the undergraduate stu-
dents expected to attend their gradua-
tions Saturday.
The recommended study time for
that many credits would be 7.5 mil-
lion hours, or 860 years, according to
Martin Simpson, director of the Read-
ing and Writing Center.
About 1,400 undergraduate stu-
dents plan to attend the graduation
ceremony Saturday, according to
Donna Stricker, director of the com-
mencement. She said she's unsure


how many students will receive their
degrees without attending the cer-
emony.
The number of students expected
to attend the graduation was deter-
mined by the number of students who
ordered caps and gowns.
The College of Liberal
Student Arts and Sciences has the
Life most students graduat-
ing, "by far," Stricker
said. The college expects about 268
graduates.
In addition to the undergraduates,
there will be more than 1,500 graduate
and professional students graduating
Saturday. Some professional schools,

U


Laid-off professor


officially reinstated


By LIDIA DINKOVA
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF educational psychology as-
sistant professor David Therriault
was officially reinstated to his po-
sition Monday after he received a
layoff notice in July 2009.
In a hearing held June 28 at
Emerson Alumni Hall, arbitrator
Tom Young decided Therriault
was unjustly laid off because uni-
versity administration did not at-
tempt to find him an alternative
position within the department
of educational psychology or the
College of Education and deemed
him ineligible to apply for tenure.
Both are violations of the Col-
lective Bargaining Agreement.
"The university is supposed to
make an active effort to find him
another position, but instead they
chose to ignore this part of the
agreement," said Candi Churchill,
service unit director at the United
Faculty of Florida.
United Faculty of Florida,
an organization that represents


graduate employees and faculty
throughout Florida universities,
spoke on behalf of Therriault at
the hearing.
"There's no good way to
make the cuts that we
made, and unfortunately
there were some decisions
to make layoffs."
Janine Sikes
UF spokeswoman

The university cited adverse
financial circumstances as the rea-
son he was laid off.
Between 2008 and 2009, $100
million was cut from UF's bud-
get, said UF spokeswoman Janine
Sikes.
"There are thousands and
thousands of faculty on this cam-
pus and the university was facing
a severe budget deficit," she said.
"There's no good way to make the
cuts that we made, and unfortu-
nately there were some decisions

hydraulic fracturing, or "frack-

nies across rural America are
attempting to lease property
from residents in order to drill
for natural gas. Filmmaker Josh
Fox received a lucrative offer
from an energy company want-
ing to lease his property to tap
into a reservoir of natural gas.
Fox decided to take his camera
and meet other rural residents
on the front lines of cracking.
He traveled to 32 states and dis-
covered toxic streams, ruined
aquifers, dying livestock, brutal
illnesses and kitchen sinks that
burst into flames. He learns
that all water is connected, and
perhaps some things are more
valuable than money.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Meals, phone bills spared


* SG SPENDS $16,000 FOR OFFICIALS'
PHONE BILLS, MEAL CARDS ANNUALLY.

By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN
Alligator Writer
Senators voted against a bill that would
limit funds given to Student Government of-
ficials for meals and cell phone bills during
Tuesday's meeting.
Members of the Student Alliance party
authored the Student Government Fiscal Re-
sponsibility Act, that would have, if passed,
put a cap on the money given to SG officials
for cell phone usage and meal cards.
According to the bill, the Student Body
president, vice president and treasurer each
receive between $1,200 and $1,500 a year for
cell phone usage and up to $3,000 for meal
cards. All of this money comes from the SG
budget.
This money, combined with money giv-
en to other SG officials, costs SG more than
$16,000 per year. This number excludes sala-
ries and travel costs, according to the bill.
In the bill, the Student Alliance party pro-
posed giving the officials only $65 a month
for their cell phone bills, and $500 a year to-
ward their meal cards, which can be used at


any Gator Dining location.
Jonathan Ossip, Senate leader for the Stu-
dent Alliance party, said he doesn't want to
see their compensations cut completely, nor
is he against them receiving a salary, but he
doesn't think so much money for SG officials
should be taken from the Student Body when
the funds could be used for something else.
Putting a cap on these reimbursements is
an obvious solution, Ossip said.
"This could be going back to regular stu-
dents, and that's what this bill is trying to
do," he said.
Ben Meyers, who repre-
sents the Unite Party, said
the money is given to these
officials because they can-
not have a part-time job
while serving in SG.
He said these members
ssip of SG spend most of their
time in the Reitz Union, so
they typically eat there, and they spend a lot
of time on the phone working with people
such as the SG lobbyists in Tallahassee.
"These so-called perks are necessary
to help them do their jobs," Meyers said.
"We're lucky that we still even have leaders
that are willing to serve."


UF employee, student

arrested for auto theft


By KAT BEIN
Alligator Writer
A UF employee and an electrical
engineering student were arrested
Wednesday for grand theft auto after
they admitted to stealing two scooters.
At about 4 p.m., Gainesville Po-
lice officers spotted UF student Jared
Wolffis, 24, and Bryan Urban, 22, suspi-
ciously driving a truck around various
apartment complexes off of Southwest
20th Avenue, according to the arrest
reports.
When the officers followed the
truck into Canopy Apartments, the pair
stopped suddenly and made a U-turn
in the parking lot, the report stated.
Police followed their truck until the
officers pulled them over in Rockwood
Villas Apartments, the report stated.
As police approached, Wolffis, who


was in the passenger seat, got out of the
truck and ran away, despite officers'
demands to stop, the report stated.
After being read his rights, Urban
admitted to stealing the scooter in the
bed of the truck from Canopy Apart-
ments, the report stated.
A police dog, Justice, was brought
to search for the student in the area
around the apartment complex. Within
minutes, Justice found
Local Wolffis and bit him, ac-
News cording to a GPD state-
ment.
The pair were also connected to the
theft of another scooter from near 200
SE Second Ave., the report stated.
Wolffis is charged with grand theft
auto, resisting arrest without violence,
and loitering and prowling. Urban is
charged with grand theft auto and loi-
tering and prowling, the report stated.

FSU alumni bring version of ZipCarts to Gainesville


Carts are electrically run, paid for


By KAT BEIN
Alligator Writer

Most taxis charge their customers,
but there will soon be five new electric
carts roaming the streets of downtown
Gainesville looking to give people a free
ride.
Next week, the first three electric carts
will be arriving from the Gotcha Media
Group, an Atlanta-based company started
by two Florida State University alumni.
The carts should be in service in just a
couple weeks, according to company co-
founder Drew Sfugaras.
The carts seat five passengers, besides
the employed driver who works for tips,


and are 100 percent electrically run, Sfu-
garas said.
The carts, specially designed with col-
lege students in mind, will be fitted with
CD, DVD and MP3 players, as well as flat-
screen TVs, he said.
"If the Jetsons' car had wheels, that's
kinda what they look like," he said. "We
want them to be fun."
The drivers will also act as concierges,
offering up-to-date information on local
events and hot spots, he said.
The carts can run two to three hours on
one charge, and use a rapid-charge system
that fully energizes the battery in 30 min-
utes.
The company is currently discussing


by advertising
with UF the best places to set up charging
stations, Sfugaras said.
The carts can be hailed like paying tax-
is, or called in through a dispatch number.
They will run from 7:30 a.m. until noon, he
Arounsaid. They will then start
Gainesville back up sometime in the
Gan evening and run until
3 a.m., so they will be
available for students who have been out
drinking, he said.
"The goal is that everyone gets home
safely and we get everyone who needs a
ride," he said.
Gotcha, which stands for Green Oper-
ated Transit Carrying Humanity Around,
can afford offering free rides because the


carts will be "wrapped in advertisements,"
he said.
The idea for the company came from
trying to solve the pan-collegiate prob-
lem of difficult student parking while also
giving advertisers the chance to make an
impression on college students, Sfugaras
said.
"It's really the best way to get in front
of these people," he said. "We love the
model of providing a free service to stu-
dents while marketing."
Other late-night transportation will
still be available for students. ZipCarts, a
nightly shuttle service, and a formerly free
ride, now charges $3 per person and will
compete with Gotcha taxis.
Student Government also offers Student
Nighttime Auxiliary Patrol, the free cam-
pus transportation service, until 3 a.m.

Fraud victims may pay up to $50


SKIMMERS, from pagel


recover her money.
Bob Page, Alachua County president for
Alarion Bank, said that under Federal Regula-
tion E, consumers who have been victimized
only need to pay up to $50. Of course, that de-
pends on whether or not the bank deems the
claim legitimate.
The skimmers haven't just been affecting
consumers, but local businesses as well.
Patrick Daniel, co-owner of Go Video, a
small video rental shop located inside the
Chevron at 5221 NW 43rd St., said that he has
been losing business because people are refus-
ing to leave their credit card information with
him.
Go Video rents videos to customers by the
day. To charge its customers, Go Video must


keep credit card information on file in order
to prevent people from absconding with its
movies.
To accommodate worried customers, Dan-
iel has had to take cash deposits on his rent-
als.
"I couldn't explain to them that the skim-
mers, they get you at the
Around pumps," he said.
Gainesville Daniel also said that he
has noticed a major increase
in people who walk inside to pay.
Though she does not buy gas at the Chev-
ron where Go Video is located, Liz is included
in the multitude of people who now pay in-
side with cash.
"I've gotten yelled at [by my husband
Dustin] for not paying inside," she said. "If I
just swipe at the gas pump, I get talked to."

to make layoffs."
Therriault, however, had an almost $1
million external grant from the National Sci-
ence Foundation.
Furthermore, a briefing filed by Churchill
reads that the College of Education contin-
ued to hire tenure-track faculty and post
open positions after Therriault was laid off.
"From my position, if this is a budgetary
issue, the university should have a hiring
freeze," Churchill said.


Therriault continued working during the
past year.
"My responsibility is
to my students and to my
research and I take those

Evil Event

Burn Quran Day

deserves no attention

Gainesville Mayor Craig Lowe hasn't wasted any time
coming out in protest of Dove World Outreach Cen-
ter's plans for a Quran burning on Sept. 11.
The event, "International Burn a Quran Day," has gotten a
lot of national press for its hate-mongering, anti-Islamic mes-
sage. We just would have used words a little stronger than
"fringe" to categorize the group.
This group is an evil twist on the kind of high-cost, high-
commitment Christianity that televangelists like Peter Popoff
have been flooding the airwaves with for years, except in-
stead of a $20 bottle of holy spring water and a prayer mat,
adherents get brainwashed into having intense, unjustifiable
hatred for their neighbors.
Sure, they have their right to freedom of speech, but we
really can't figure out how an event like this could possibly
further their movement. Burning a Quran is something that
anyone outside the fold of their cult would view as an act to
incite a confrontation.
Unfortunately, people like this interpret any sort of atten-
tion - be it positive or negative - as affirmation that they are
doing the right thing. That said, we are against protesting the
group's book burning since it would only push Dove World
to turn up their zeal to 11 and plan more events like this in
the future.
We don't have any misconceptions that ignoring them
will force them to stop, but we do have high hopes that a lack
of attention will make them move to a place that feeds the
fire - hopefully somewhere far away from Gainesville.


So long, summer


ing summer is finally
coming to a close,
and after all the dreadfully
boring news that came out
in the past few months, we
think it should have come a
lot sooner.
We had the BP oil spill,
with scores of stories about
"Top Kill" underwater cur-
rents bringing oil to Florida
shores - if the topic was a
horse, we'd shoot it. We
had a new Supreme Court
nominee, coupled with a
confirmation process as
predictable as the "Twi-
light" plot. And who could
forget the Lindsay Lohan
trial? Nothing says "slow
news season" like giving
her hours of screen time on
everything from TMZ to the
evening news.
It could have been worse,
though. We could have had
a repeat of last summer's
painfully-overdrawn cov-
erage of Michael Jackson's
death. Although we can't
think of another pop star


who could draw that much
unwarranted attention.
Maybe Madonna? Or Bono?
Who cares, anyway?
We just hope none of
these stories carry into the
fall. It might be wishful
thinking for the oil spill, but
we could do without hear-
ing another word about
Lindsay Lohan for the rest of
our lives. What has she ever
done except star in needless
remakes of campy Disney
films? Oh yeah, she helped
cap off Michael Keaton's
career of classic '80s mov-
ies with an embarrassingly
bad summer movie about a
Volkswagen.
But now isn't the time
to focus on the past. Af-
ter summer exams we get
a couple well-deserved
weeks of relaxation before
college football is back in
full swing. At least by then
there will be something a
little more worthwhile on
TV than what we've had to
deal with for the past few
months.

e have about 80 years to live, and about one-third
of that we spend unconscious. And I don't mean
because of an accumulation of hard nights at Mid-
town. Throw in work, education, eating, daily household
and personal hygiene chores, and the roughly five years ev-
eryone spends in a line of some sort just waiting for some-
thing like a red light to turn green.
Unlike Dorian Gray, we have no portrait of immortality,
so why do we allow ourselves to live within our own "Tru-
man" shows? Because our society glamorizes the standard.
I turn on the TV. Hmm. It's HGTV. For the fourth time in
two hours, "House Hunters" is on. It's an entire show about
normal people buying houses in a particularly unexciting
way. Great. *Click*
MTV, "The Real World," season - I don't know - 241.
So, 20 people in an unreasonably luxurious house are living
there ... I'm waiting for an actual plot ... any reason to actu-
ally continue watching this show ...
*Click*
Lindsay Lohan is in jail, again, and, for some reason, this
dominates every news channel. And for some reason they
want our opinions on the situation via Twitter.
*CLICK*
Sure, that's just television. But what does society consider
a fulfilled life? Well, you go to school to get a job, and then
you get a job to pay for school. Then you work until you can
afford to not have to worry about anything, just like life was
before school. It sounds cruel, but this is the necessary cycle
of life in modem society.
Stay with me, I am certainly not advocating people quit
their jobs and drop out of school. In fact, one of society's ma-
jor problems is that we allow people to simply throw their
hands up and quit the cycle, and then we allow them to live
off of everyone else for free in the form of government en-
titlements. Instead, we as a society should be advocating in-
dividual greatness.
Where is the cultivation of greatness and competition?


When do we start to refocus on living
life uniquely, independently and cre-
atively? Why do we allow ourselves to
conform to stereotypes so easily?
I'm a frat guy who doesn't own a
polo shirt. I like that. I'm a Republican
Bryan Griffin who enjoys indie music and concerts. I
letters@alligator org like that, too. But I want more than to
just break stereotypes. I want to make
this one shot at life everything it is po-
tentially capable of being. And as much as I desire this, I also
like to encourage this in others.
I don't want the occasional dinner at Bennigan's with
friends who grow farther apart the older I get. I want Great
Gatsby parties and dialogues worthy of the ancient Greeks
and Romans.
I don't want to live in the suburban house with hardwood
floors and granite counter tops. I want to live in a castle with
a secret bookcase and a conservatory.
I am not talking about being rich. I am talking about be-
ing different - not for the sake of being different but for the
sake of the inherent fact that we are all different. Yet we allow
each other to set our own standards of living and normalcy.
That's simply how I define my "greatness." It is worth it
to ask yourself what constitutes yours.
Don't let life go by you without throwing in a jab. Some
cannot appreciate serendipity; but it deserves more legitima-
cy than it is currently given.
Everyone I spoke to about this summer's big blockbuster,
"Inception," loved it, especially because the concept of con-
structing a unique world as one chooses is broadly appeal-
ing. Well, why do we have to be dreaming to make the world
our own?
On a note of encouragement, a simple message: It doesn't
have to be black and white; paint the roses whatever color
you like.

Letter to the Editor
Competition should extend to
other services as well
In Tuesday's Alligator, the
Editorial Board took a strong
stance in favor of adding more
Gainesville utility providers, fi-
nally bringing the free market to
our power and water and work-
ing to stop the city-controlled
socialists at GRU. Frankly, I
couldn't agree more.
We should be asking members
of the left-wing city commis-
sion why they won't let the free
market work. They might say
that adding another set of utili-
ties would require tearing up the
roads and building new power
lines, or that the cost would be
enormous, or that public utilities
just don't work that way. But I
say they are dead wrong.
This is America. No task is too
bold, and their naysaying is in
the way of private industry.
While we're tearing up the
roads, why not build a second
set of private, free market streets
as well? The Florida Department
of Transportation has held a mo-
nopoly on our roads ever since I
was born, and it's high time we
let competition prevail.
The invisible hand of the free
market needs to run its course,
and creating competition for
GRU is just the first step.
Personally, I think we need
competition in the fire depart-
ment, as well. With their com-
munist, state-owned services, it
makes perfect sense why their
trucks are all painted red.

interest of ourselves for others, it is taken as
a general norm that such leaders of societies
take steps to curb the negative or bad free-
doms, which are in the best interest of all.
At the crux of this argument is the unity of
individuals as human beings. In essence, the
judgments of what are good or bad for you,
which would normally be controversial, in
this instance are not up for debate. If we can
agree that what is harmful to you is bad, then
society can make clear and decisive actions to
curb your freedom.
UF recently passed a smoking ban earlier
this month prohibiting students from using
tobacco products on its main campus. If my
writing has been persuasive enough, you
would take the logical and moral view that
this is one step in the right direction for the
institution. We all are aware of the dangers
of smoking, not only to smokers, but to non-
smokers who arguably have their own free-
doms (to clean air) infringed upon.
The fact is, yes, your freedoms have been
curbed, and yes, there are logical and moral
reasons that could be made for it. It may be
unenforceable, but it sends a positive mes-
sage to its students. Freedom is a beautiful
thing, but the craving to hang onto the deci-
sions to ultimately do us harm is not only im-
moral but silly. Let's try not to be silly.

ous that Chuck is somewhat of a local hero. He shows it in the way that he talks about his hometown crowd
and the way they adore him. This wasn't your typical college gig. It was tried and true ACRs out there hoot-
ing and hollering for him. It made me glad to see a local musician getting back on his feet."

Dave's final summer column: A whole season in review


LeBron James in Miami, Lohan in jail


nd so, dear readers, here
we are. Another summer in
Gainesville has come and
gone, and it's time we all look back
and reflect on how much we've gone
through. There have been plenty of
things to remember over this past
pseudo-semester, like that time ...
where ... um ...
OK, confession time. I really
don't remember much about this
summer.
I remember it getting so hot that
my roommate melted and made
a mess all over the rug, and then
LeBron taking his talents to South
Beach.
Since then I've been listening
to a loop of Eddie Murphy's hit sin-
gle "Party All the Time" for weeks,
while partying all the time.
Unfortunately, it's the afore-
mentioned partying that has ren-
dered me completely unable to


do a "Summer in Review" column
without making most of this stuff
up as I go.
I'll start with something I've al-
ready mentioned. LeBron James,
basketball player and monarch ex-
traordinaire, will be playing for my
hometown Miami Heat from now
on.
This is merely the next chap-
ter in the ongoing saga of Florida
sports teams seal-clubbing the
state of Ohio.
Actually, now that I think about
it, the people of Ohio are much like
seals: blubbery, helpless and ter-
rible at sports.
Thanks to the ongoing events
in the Gulf of Mexico, we have
achieved our dream of being able
to run our cars off seawater, like
Elisabeth Shue said we could in
that movie "The Saint" with Val
Kilmer.


Sadly,
Lindsay Lo-
han was sent
to jail for the
murder of
Val Kilmer,
after her law-
Dave Johnson years couldn't
Columnist prove that
the movie
"MacGruber" already murdered
him, or that Val Kilmer is actually
still alive.
Collectively, the world watched
in horror as an alien race known as
the "vuvuzela" descended on South
Africa, and overtook the populace.
The only thing that stopped
them from taking over the world
was their fascination with soccer.
Obviously, the aliens do not
have sports where they come from
and were able to find soccer inter-
esting for a whole month.


Luckily, a psychic octopus was
able to drive them off.
"Toy Story 3" came out this sum-
mer, ending an 11 year wait for
those kids who watched the origi-
nal two and were young enough to
truly appreciate it.
Unfortunately, Pixar realized all
those kids grew up and decided
to make them feel like total jerks
about ever giving a toy away.
Also, my roommate Paul was re-
duced to a blubbering mass by the
end credits, sputtering "Andy loves
Woody, but knows it's time to let
go!"
He asked me not to mention
that, but he's late on the rent.
Gainesville and the rest of the
East Coast had one of the hottest
summers on record.
I, and everyone else who bought
Starcraft 2, didn't notice.
Beyond that, literally nothing at
all happened this summer.
If anyone tries to tell you some-
thing that didn't show up in this


column, then they're lying to you
for the purposes of humor because
he or she isn't able to think of any-
thing else to come up with before
deadline.
And so, readers, there it is. The
whole summer, laid out for you in
probably accurate fashion.
I hope you know how much fun
it has been entertaining you guys
this summer, as I'm uncertain as
to my future in this position, and
whether it will be available for me
when fall rolls around.
To improve my chances, voice
your support by saying nothing at
all to the higher-ups at the Alligator
(to the higher-ups: hope you guys
are ready for the overwhelming si-
lence). See you next fall, kids.
Editor's note: Dave Johnson is
a great columnist but notoriously
hard to reach.
You can express your gratitude
(or lack thereof) to him personally
at djohnson338@gmail.com. See
you in the fall, Dave.

Humans vs. Zombies: Inside th


By KAT BEIN
avenue writer

Editor's note: Kat Bein followed a
group of humans around this week-
end and wrote about her experienc-
es.
It was 9 p.m. Friday night when
I found myself at the Reitz Union
Colonnade. UF was dark and most-
ly deserted, but I wasn't alone.
Inside the Reitz Union lobby, about
30 students stood huddled in groups,
waiting anxiously for information
from their leaders outside.
Just beyond the colonnade steps
waited the enemy, the scourge of the
undead, the zombies.
It was a couple of days after the
infection broke out, the third time
in UF campus history, and already
more than 40 people had changed. I
was glad to be a human, and though
I wasn't armed, I was safe among
these weathered warriors. Or at
least, that's what I hoped.
At about 9:15 p.m., the humans
were called to muster. Dr. Muriel, the
one woman who knew how to cook-
up a cure for the virus had been in-
jured the night before and rescued by
some brave young band of humans
calling themselves the Basterds.
Dr. Muriel told everyone she need-
ed samples of the virus in order to
recreate the cure in her lab, but the
only samples she knew of were lost
somewhere on campus, and we hu-
mans would need to scour the area
for clues as to their whereabouts.
I was nervous. We were safe
where we were, but the humans
would all be leavingsoon and I didn't
want to get left behind. I found the
group with the most guns and fol-


lowed them. I was a Basterd tonight.
Led by Nick LoCastro, a fourth-
year microbiology student, the
Basterds are a tough looking band of
badasses. LoCastro was armed with
three guns. Another Basterd, Cam-
eron Conrad, was strapped to the
nines with modified guns and a slew
of sock-grenades draped across his
chest.
The Basterds, about 10 in all that
night, headed toward the Infirmary.
We'd gotten a hint that some clues
could be found "where sick students


go." LoCastro ordered us all to hush
ourselves as we hustled through the
shadows, guns cocked and ready in
case of ambush.
We snuck around the back way
and came through the Florida Gym.
We met a game moderator, third-
year computer engineering major
T.J. Boyd, on the steps of the clinic,
and he told us to look for something
blue.
While the Basterds checked
around, I stared at the body looming
in front of us. I found out that was


e campus i
Derek Jones, the Original Zombie. I
gulped.
Someone found the clue - it was
a hazmat suit and mask and a clue
reading something about having only
two minutes to be somewhere. There
wasn't time to think what that meant
because more zombies were rapidly
gathering around.
LoCastro ordered the Basterds to
huddle, AKA I tried my best to get in
the middle. The air was tense, and
there was an uncomfortable calm
before the storm as the zombies

Humans vs. Zombies just finished its third run on UF campus. Zombie Loic Robertson, 22, tries to figure out what to
eat now that brains are off the menu. The game ran from Wednesday, July 28, to Saturday, July 31.


infection
circled around us, then, suddenly-
AAHHHHHHHHH!!!! The zom-
bies roared and rushed our group. I
screamed and put my hands on my
ears as Nerf bullets shot past my
head. I was confused. I thought I felt
a zombie's hand brush my face. But
when the noise deadened and reality
set in, I was still alive.
I was lucky. The zombies were
only stunned for the next 10 min-
utes. There was no time to grieve.
We took cover inside the Florida
Gym before regrouping in McCarty
Hall. One of the Basterds told me the
chilling tale of how, last year, about
40 students were infected where we
stood in a bloodbath referred to as
the McCarty Feast.
We met with Dr. Muriel. She told
us it wasn't looking good. Since we
left the Reitz Union Colonnade about
an hour and a half ago, the zombies
had taken the lead and we Basterds,
along with another group of maybe
three or four somewhere else, were
the only humans left.
On top of that, some humans had
discovered the coolers hidden in Mc-
Carty woods that contained the cure,
but they had gone in before realizing
the woods were "poisoned," and
technically they should have been
dead for going in without the hazmat
suits.
The mission was pretty much a
failure for the humans, and so plans
were scrapped. The zombies were
declared winners. But there was
hope for tomorrow, and Dr. Muriel
promised lots of cure cards to even
the playing field the next morning.
Three times running and humans
vs. zombies is still working out the
kinks. But hey, it's just a game.

Hot Water Music frontman struggles to find balance


By ALEX ORLANDO
avenue writer


He steps up to the microphone -
eyes shut, sweat streaming down his
face and guitar - as the raspy sound
of his voice cuts through the twangy,
bluegrass sound of his band.
His thick, brownish-red beard al-
most touches the microphone as he
sings and bangs out chords on his
worn acoustic guitar, the pickguard
long gone.
He may not look like it, but even


now, as he entertains screams of
"Chuck yeah!" from the audience
between sets while casting a se-
rene look on the crowd - the kind
you give your family after you've
just finished Thanksgiving dinner -
Chuck Ragan is fighting for balance.
That's because he's headed out on
the road again, a road that offered him
thousands of screaming fans when
he started as the frontman for punk
band Hot Water Music. It was also a
road that he hated coming back from
- back to the reality of eviction notices


tacked to the doors of empty houses
that he used to call home.
Back to hauling his belongings
from trash cans in the front yards of
those houses. Back to donating blood
to make rent payments.
That was the life Ragan had called
normal until 2006, when the band
went on an indefinite hiatus to deal
with the exhaustion, relationships and
personal lives of its members after
a run of touring between 1997 and
2005.
"You can only run a machine for so


long before it needs maintenance," he
said.
Since then, aside from some tour-
ing and writing music independently,
Ragan said he has been focusing on
life in Gainesville.
He said he's been spending time
with his wife, fishing with friends on
Orange Lake and around Shell Mound
near Cedar Key and bringing back the
fish to throw on the grill and sit in his
lawn chair.
"You havetofind a balance between
doingwhatyou love, making livingand


running yourself into the dirt," he said.
Since the band reunited and re-
vamped itself in 2008, Ragan said
he's gotten better about that balance
between music and the rest of his life.
He said he realized that last week
when he was sitting on his porch in
Gainesville, writing songs with the rest
of the band, just like before his rigor-
ous and costly tour schedule.
But, he said, some things still
haven't changed.
For the rest of this story, visit us on-
line at alligator.org/the_avenue.

Brantley t
By ANTHONY CHIANG
Alligator Staff Writer
achlang@alllgator org

A new era is about to begin.
Former Gators quarterback Tim
Tebow, who is in Denver participat-
ing in practices as a member of the
Denver Broncos, is gone.
In steps redshirt junior John Brant-
ley - Florida's new signal caller.
"Well, you can't replace (Tebow),"
senior safety Ahmad Black said. "You
only hope to keep up the tradition,
and keep up what he's done."
But as UF begins its training camp
today, Brantley will look to create his
own legacy.
The Ocala native is more of a
pocket passer than Tebow was, but
will provide less with his legs.
Last season, Brantley threw for
410 yards and seven touchdowns to
go along with zero interceptions in
seven games, mostly in mop-up duty
for Tebow.


"Well, you can't replace
(Tebow). You only hope to
keep up the tradition, and
keep up what he's done."
Ahmad Black
UF senior safety

"We're not going to run our quar-
terback as much," center Mike Pounc-
ey said. "He's not as big as Superman
was."
However, UF coach Urban Mey-
er does not expect that dynamic to
change the offensive scheme very
much if there are other weapons that
can spread the field.
"(Our offensive scheme) is not
going to be dictated as much by the
quarterback," Meyer said. "I know
what he can do. It's the people around
him."
Even though the two primary of-
fensive targets from last season, wide
receiver Riley Cooper and tight end
Aaron Hernandez, are now in the
NFL - the Gators expect even more
playmakers to step up this year.
Wide receiver Deonte Thompson,
who struggled at times and accumu-
lated just 343 yards through the air
last season, is expected to be the deep
threat and the leader of this year's re-
ceiving core.
But the players that could end up
benefitting the most from Meyer's de-


beginss new
cision to stick with the spread offense
are speedy wide receivers Andre De-
bose and Chris Rainey, who made the
move to the position from running
back in the offseason.
Debose, who Pouncey said would
be the offensive player to emerge this
year, came into UF last season as the
No. 2 wide receiver recruit, according
to Rivals.com. But he never had the
chance to play because of a hamstring
injury. Debose has received compari-
sons to Percy Harvin and could play
the same role in this offense.
Other potential passing targets


chapter
for Brantley are redshirt senior Carl

Gators fans should


leave lofty expecta-


tions at the door
he Gators open up their preseason training
camp today, and that can only mean one thing
around these parts: UF fans already have their
eyes on a trip to Glendale, Ariz., in January.
But before they get their hopes up too much, I
think now would be the best time to warn fans to
curb their expectations for this year's football team,
because there are sure to be a few bumps in the road.
Now, I know many of you have been spoiled the
last four years, with two Southeastern Conference
titles, two BCS titles and a Heisman-winning quar-
terback who just so happened to be one of the great-
est - if not the greatest - college football players of
all time.
But that was the past. Tim Tebow is gone, as are
his two favorite receiving targets from last season in
Riley Cooper and Aaron Hernandez.
Add in the losses of Joe Haden, who was arguably
the best shutdown cornerback in the nation, lineback-
ers Brandon Spikes and Ryan Stamper, safety Major
Wright and defensive ends
Carlos Dunlap and Jermaine
Cunningham, and it adds up
to a lot of voids to fill from
a team that went 13-1 and
didn't even win its confer-
Tom Green ence championship.
Those losses leave many
The Tom Green Show questions surrounding this
tgreen@allhgatororg
tgreen@al g team - questions that fans
won't find out the answer
to until at least Sept. 11 against South Florida in the
Gators' only real test before they begin their SEC
schedule.
The biggest questions remain on offense, where
John Brantley will take over for Tebow. Brantley has
been highly touted coming into the season, and by all
accounts, he has the tools to be a great player by the
time he leaves UF. But he has yet to prove anything
as a starter.
More uncertainty revolves around the pieces sur-
rounding Brantley on offense. Who will emerge as the
team's go-to receivers?
"We have a lot of talent," coach Urban Meyer said
at SEC Media Days last month. "I can't list you the
top six or seven playmakers in order. I know we have
them."
Meyer can't list them in order because it's clearly
an unknown commodity. The potential is there for
Brantley and the playmakers, but it's just a matter of
turning that potential into production during games.
The Gators also bring in the No. 2 recruiting class,
according to Rivals.com, and some of those freshmen
are sure to have positive impacts this season. But they
won't all pan out immediately - if at all.
So before you go booking a trip to Glendale in Jan-
uary, Gators fans, take off the orange-and-blue-tinted
shades and look at this team for what it really is - tal-
ented, but unproven.

No. 1 Alabama: Crimson Tide look to defend title


* THEY LOSE 11 STARTERS COM-
BINED ON OFFENSE AND DEFENSE.

By TOM GREEN
Alligator Writer
tgreen@alligator org

Alabama finished last season atop the
college football world, and that's exactly
where it begins this season, coming in as
the unanimous No. 1 in the alligatorSports'
preseason college football poll.
But coach Nick Saban, who has won na-
tional championships at both LSU and Ala-
bama, knows that was last season and in or-
der to get back to the top this year, his team
will have to stay hungry and stay focused.
And that will be no easy feat.
"You really can't look in the rearview
mirror and be able to accomplish these
things," Saban said at Southeastern Confer-
ence Media Days last month. "You have to
look forward and stay focused on the pres-
ent moment in terms of what it takes to be
successful."
As if repeating as national champions in
college football isn't difficult enough - Ne-
braska was the last school to win back-to-
back titles in 1994 and 1995 (both Associ-
ated Press titles) - Alabama will have to
replace a lot of components of last year's
title-winning team. The Tide lose 11 start-
ers combined on offense and defense, plus
their kicker and punter.
Of the losses, Alabama's defense takes
the biggest hit, losing eight of 11 starters
from last year. Out of those eight defensive


players, six were drafted in April's NFL
Draft, including linebacker Rolando Mc-
Clain (105 total tackles, four sacks, two in-
terceptions), cornerbacks Kareem Jackson
(49 tackles, 13 passes broken up) and Javier
Arenas (71 tackles, five interceptions, five
sacks), and behemoth defensive tackle/


gap-plugger Terrence Cody (28 tackles, six
tackles for a loss).
Despite those losses, Alabama does re-
turn a starter at each level of the defense.
In the secondary, defensive back Mark Bar-
ron returns to lead the defense. He led the
team with seven interceptions - including

Alabama Heisman-winning running back Mark Ingram returns this season, along with
sophomore Trent Richardson, to give the Crimson Tide a dangerous rushing duo.


one for a touchdown - and was second in
tackles with 76.
At linebacker, Dont'a Hightower returns
after an injury that kept him out of all but
four games in 2009. Saban has said High-
tower could move around on defense and
play multiple roles.
On the line, Alabama returns BCS title
game MVP Marcell Dareus, who led the
team with six and a half sacks last year.
However, his status is up in the air, as he
is the subject of an ongoing NCAA inves-
tigation.
While the defense is going through quite
a makeover, the offense should look famil-
iar. The Tide return eight starters, including
running back Mark Ingram, who rushed for
1,658 yards and 17 touchdowns en route to
becoming the first player in school history
to win the Heisman.
Joining Ingram in the backfield is Trent
Richardson, who rushed for 751 yards and
eight scores as a freshman behind Ingram.
The two will combine to form arguably the
best one-two punch in college football.
Quarterback Greg McElroy, who hasn't
lost a game as a starter since the eighth
grade and did an ample job of managing
the offense in his first year as a starter for
Alabama, also returns, as does his favorite
target, wide receiver Julio Jones.
To make things even easier for those
skill players on offense, three starters re-
turn on the offensive line, so the offense
shouldn't lose a step. And if Saban can get
the newcomers on defense to buy into his
scheme, Alabama is a real threat to repeat
as national champions.

You Decide. Skimmer victims turn to banks for advice WOMAN USED CREDIT CARD AT GAS STATION WHERE SKIMMERS WERE DISCOVERED. By ALEXANDER KLAUSNER Alligator Contributing Writer Liz woke up one morning to a voicemail on her phone. The call was from her bank, USAA, notifying her that her account had suspicious charges on it and was flagged for fraud. She checked her statements and discovered two fraudulent purchases, each for more than $100 at a gas station in Tampa. But Liz hadn't been in Tampa. She was asleep in her Gainesville residence when the charges were made. Liz, who requested her last name not be used, is just one of the unknown number of Gainesville residents who had their credit card information saved onto a gas-pump skimmer and downloaded via Bluetooth by identity bandits. The 25-year-old said she frequently bought gas from the Kangaroo station at 3424 SW Williston Road, where two skimmers were found on the weekend of July 24. Before the charges appeared, the last purchase made with her card was gas from that station, she said. She responded by calling the bank and discussing the problem with USAA's fraud department. After about a week, she was able to SEE SKIMMERS, PAGE 5 S THURSDAY, AUGUST 5, 2010 2,900 grads to walk By ANDREW PANTAZI Alligator Writer More than 165,000 credit hours. That's about how many credits were taken by the undergraduate students expected to attend their graduations Saturday. The recommended study time for that many credits would be 7.5 million hours, or 860 years, according to Martin Simpson, director of the Reading and Writing Center. About 1,400 undergraduate students plan to attend the graduation ceremony Saturday, according to Donna Stricker, director of the commencement. She said she's unsure how many students will receive their degrees without attending the ceremony. The number of students expected to attend the graduation was determined by the number of students who ordered caps and gowns. The College of Liberal Student Arts and Sciences has the Life most students graduating, "by far," Stricker said. The college expects about 268 graduates. In addition to the undergraduates, there will be more than 1,500 graduate and professional students graduating Saturday.

In a hearing held June 28 at Emerson Alumni Hall, arbitrator Tom Young decided Therriault was unjustly laid off because university administration did not attempt to find him an alternative position within the department of educational psychology or the College of Education and deemed him ineligible to apply for tenure. Both are violations of the Collective Bargaining Agreement. "The university is supposed to make an active effort to find him another position, but instead they chose to ignore this part of the agreement," said Candi Churchill, service unit director at the United Faculty of Florida. United Faculty of Florida, an organization that represents graduate employees and faculty throughout Florida universities, spoke on behalf of Therriault at the hearing. "There's no good way to make the cuts that we made, and unfortunately there were some decisions to make layoffs." Janine Sikes UF spokeswoman The university cited adverse financial circumstances as the reason he was laid off. Between 2008 and 2009, $100 million was cut from UF's budget, said UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes. "There are thousands and thousands of faculty on this campus and the university was facing a severe budget deficit," she said.

Fox decided to take his camera and meet other rural residents on the front lines of fracking. He traveled to 32 states and discovered toxic streams, ruined aquifers, dying livestock, brutal illnesses and kitchen sinks that burst into flames.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 5, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 3 STUDENT GOVERNMENT Meals, phone bills spared 0 SG SPENDS $16,000 FOR OFFICIALS' PHONE BILLS, MEAL CARDS ANNUALLY. By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN Alligator Writer Senators voted against a bill that would limit funds given to Student Government officials for meals and cell phone bills during Tuesday's meeting. Members of the Student Alliance party authored the Student Government Fiscal Responsibility Act, that would have, if passed, put a cap on the money given to SG officials for cell phone usage and meal cards. According to the bill, the Student Body president, vice president and treasurer each receive between $1,200 and $1,500 a year for cell phone usage and up to $3,000 for meal cards. All of this money comes from the SG budget. This money, combined with money given to other SG officials, costs SG more than $16,000 per year. This number excludes salaries and travel costs, according to the bill. In the bill, the Student Alliance party proposed giving the officials only $65 a month for their cell phone bills, and $500 a year toward their meal cards, which can be used at any Gator Dining location. Jonathan Ossip, Senate leader for the Student Alliance party, said he doesn't want to see their compensations cut completely, nor is he against them receiving a salary, but he doesn't think so much money for SG officials should be taken from the Student Body when the funds could be used for something else. Putting a cap on these reimbursements is an obvious solution, Ossip said. "This could be going back to regular students, and that's what this bill is trying to do," he said. Ben Meyers, who represents the Unite Party, said the money is given to these officials because they cannot have a part-time job while serving in SG. He said these members OP of SG spend most of their time in the Reitz Union, so they typically eat there, and they spend a lot of time on the phone working with people such as the SG lobbyists in Tallahassee. "These so-called perks are necessary to help them do their jobs," Meyers said. "We're lucky that we still even have leaders that are willing to serve." UF employee, student arrested for auto theft By KAT BEIN Alligator Writer A UF employee and an electrical engineering student were arrested Wednesday for grand theft auto after they admitted to stealing two scooters. At about 4 p.m., Gainesville Police officers spotted UF student Jared Wolffis, 24, and Bryan Urban, 22, suspiciously driving a truck around various apartment complexes off of Southwest 20th Avenue, according to the arrest reports. When the officers followed the truck into Canopy Apartments, the pair stopped suddenly and made a U-turn in the parking lot, the report stated. Police followed their truck until the officers pulled them over in Rockwood Villas Apartments, the report stated. As police approached, Wolffis, who was in the passenger seat, got out of the truck and ran away, despite officers' demands to stop, the report stated. After being read his rights, Urban admitted to stealing the scooter in the bed of the truck from Canopy Apartments, the report stated. A police dog, Justice, was brought to search for the student in the area around the apartment complex. Within minutes, Justice found Local Wolffis and bit him, acNews cording to a GPD statement. The pair were also connected to the theft of another scooter from near 200 SE Second Ave., the report stated. Wolffis is charged with grand theft auto, resisting arrest without violence, and loitering and prowling. Urban is charged with grand theft auto and loitering and prowling, the report stated. frze yo non-fQt, cholesterol-free certified probiotic nutritious dessert aternative only 45 cents/oz 0 AI, 0 .S $ OFF Jiffy Lube Signature Service' it Oil Change No Coupon Needed!

4, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, AUGUST 5,2010 FSU alumni bring version of ZipCarts to Gainesville By KAT BEIN Alligator Writer Most taxis charge their customers, but there will soon be five new electric carts roaming the streets of downtown Gainesville looking to give people a free ride. Next week, the first three electric carts will be arriving from the Gotcha Media Group, an Atlanta-based company started by two Florida State University alumni. The carts should be in service in just a couple weeks, according to company cofounder Drew Sfugaras. The carts seat five passengers, besides the employed driver who works for tips, and are 100 percent electrically run, Sfugaras said. The carts, specially designed with college students in mind, will be fitted with CD, DVD and MP3 players, as well as flatscreen TVs, he said. "If the Jetsons' car had wheels, that's kinda what they look like," he said. "We want them to be fun." The drivers will also act as concierges, offering up-to-date information on local events and hot spots, he said. The carts can run two to three hours on one charge, and use a rapid-charge system that fully energizes the battery in 30 minutes. The company is currently discussing Carts are electrically run, paid for by advertising with UF the best places to set up charging stations, Sfugaras said. The carts can be hailed like paying taxis, or called in through a dispatch number. They will run from 7:30 a.m. until noon, he Around said. They will then start Ainesvile back up sometime in the aine s evening and run until 3 a.m., so they will be available for students who have been out drinking, he said.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 5, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 5 Fraud victims may pay up to $50 SKIMMERS, from page recover her money. Bob Page, Alachua County president for Alarion Bank, said that under Federal Regulation E, consumers who have been victimized only need to pay up to $50. Of course, that depends on whether or not the bank deems the claim legitimate. The skimmers haven't just been affecting consumers, but local businesses as well. Patrick Daniel, co-owner of Go Video, a small video rental shop located inside the Chevron at 5221 NW 43rd St., said that he has been losing business because people are refusing to leave their credit card information with him. Go Video rents videos to customers by the day. To charge its customers, Go Video must keep credit card information on file in order to prevent people from absconding with its movies. To accommodate worried customers, Daniel has had to take cash deposits on his rentals. "I couldn't explain to them that the skimmers, they get you at the Around pumps," he said. Gainesville Daniel also said that he has noticed a major increase in people who walk inside to pay. Though she does not buy gas at the Chevron where Go Video is located, Liz is included in the multitude of people who now pay inside with cash. "I've gotten yelled at [by my husband Dustin] for not paying inside," she said. "If I just swipe at the gas pump, I get talked to." Professor plans to apply for tenure FACU LTY, from page 1 to make layoffs." Therriault, however, had an almost $1 million external grant from the National Science Foundation. Furthermore, a briefing filed by Churchill reads that the College of Education continued to hire tenure-track faculty and post open positions after Therriault was laid off. "From my position, if this is a budgetary issue, the university should have a hiring freeze," Churchill said. Therriault continued working during the past year. "My responsibility is to my students and to my research and I take those things pretty seriously," he said. "I am very happy with the results and to be able to get back to work and not be distracted b all this." sikes sace y a He plans to apply for tenure, and the university has already stated it will comply. O'Dome to host ceremonies GRAD, from page 1 like the Levin College of Law, won't have a ceremony. About 15 students are expected to get their law degrees, but they won't walk until spring, Stricker said. The College of Education is graduating the most graduate students Saturday with 136 master's degrees and 20 doctoral degrees A former Gators football team captain and leading tackler in 2006, Earl Everett, came back to UF to earn his degree. He completed two courses in Summer A to graduate, according to an interview with OnlyGators.com. and he's expected to attend Saturday, UT spokesman Steve Orlando said. Graduate and professional students will attend a morning ceremony at 10 a.m. at the O'Connell Center, and pharmacy doctoral students will attend at 10 a.m. at the College of Pharmacy's auditorium. The undergraduate student ceremony will begin at 2 p.m. at the O'Connell Center. The two O'Connell Center ceremonies will be broadcast live online at www.registrar.ufl.edu/commencement/. FUN FACTS FOR GRADS Four years ago, the Student Body was headed by the Swamp Party, with John Boyles as president and Lydia Washington as vice president. The deadline for students to turn in F Books, which are handbooks published by the UFAlumni Association that document student traditions, is Friday. The total number of study hours recommended for the 1,400 undergraduates while at UF by the Reading & Writing Center equals 860 years or 7.5 million hours. The undergraduates witnessed UF win two football national championships, in 2006 and 2008, under coach Urban Meyer and saw former quarterback Tim Tebow win the Heisman Trophy.

6, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, AUGUST 5,2010 Editorial Evil Event Burn Quran Day deserves no attention ainesville Mayor Craig Lowe hasn't wasted any time coming out in protest of Dove World Outreach Center's plans for a Quran burning on Sept. 11. The event, "International Burn a Quran Day," has gotten a lot of national press for its hate-mongering, anti-Islamic message. We just would have used words a little stronger than "fringe" to categorize the group. This group is an evil twist on the kind of high-cost, highcommitment Christianity that televangelists like Peter Popoff have been flooding the airwaves with for years, except instead of a $20 bottle of holy spring water and a prayer mat, adherents get brainwashed into having intense, unjustifiable hatred for their neighbors. Sure, they have their right to freedom of speech, but we really can't figure out how an event like this could possibly further their movement. Burning a Quran is something that anyone outside the fold of their cult would view as an act to incite a confrontation. Unfortunately, people like this interpret any sort of attention -be it positive or negative -as affirmation that they are doing the right thing. That said, we are against protesting the group's book burning since it would only push Dove World to turn up their zeal to 11 and plan more events like this in the future. We don't have any misconceptions that ignoring them will force them to stop, but we do have high hopes that a lack of attention will make them move to a place that feeds the fire -hopefully somewhere far away from Gainesville. So long, summer This long, hot and boring summer is finally coming to a close, and after all the dreadfully boring news that came out in the past few months, we think it should have come a lot sooner. We had the BP oil spill, with scores of stories about "Top Kill" underwater currents bringing oil to Florida shores -if the topic was a horse, we'd shoot it. We had a new Supreme Court nominee, coupled with a confirmation process as predictable as the "Twilight" plot. And who could forget the Lindsay Lohan trial? Nothing says "slow news season" like giving her hours of screen time on everything from TMZ to the evening news. It could have been worse, though. We could have had a repeat of last summer's painfully-overdrawn coverage of Michael Jackson's death. Although we can't think of another pop star who could draw that much unwarranted attention. Maybe Madonna? Or Bono? Who cares, anyway? We just hope none of these stories carry into the fall. It might be wishful thinking for the oil spill, but we could do without hearing another word about Lindsay Lohan for the rest of our lives. What has she ever done except star in needless remakes of campy Disney films? Oh yeah, she helped cap off Michael Keaton's career of classic '80s movies with an embarrassingly bad summer movie about a Volkswagen. But now isn't the time to focus on the past. After summer exams we get a couple well-deserved weeks of relaxation before college football is back in full swing. At least by then there will be something a little more worthwhile on TV than what we've had to deal with for the past few months. a l l e independent fo rida Rachael Pino EDITOR Paul Runnestrand Stefania Ferro MANAGING EDITORS Drew Wilson OPINIONS EDITOR The Alligator encourages comments from readers Letters to the editor should not exceed 150 words (about one letter-sized page) They mustbe typed, double-spaced and must include the author's name, classification and phone number Names will be withheld if the writer shows just cause We reserve the right to edit for length, grammar, style and libel Send letters to ietters@aiiigatororg, bring them to 1105 W University A or send them to PO Box 14257, Gainesville, FL 32604-2257Columns of about 450 words about original topics and editorial cartoons are also welcome Questions?

Well, you go to school to get a job, and then you get a job to pay for school. Then you work until you can afford to not have to worry about anything, just like life was before school. It sounds cruel, but this is the necessary cycle of life in modern society. Stay with me, I am certainly not advocating people quit their jobs and drop out of school. In fact, one of society's major problems is that we allow people to simply throw their hands up and quit the cycle, and then we allow them to live off of everyone else for free in the form of government entitlements. Instead, we as a society should be advocating individual greatness. Where is the cultivation of greatness and competition? When do we start to refocus on living life uniquely, independently and creatively? Why do we allow ourselves to conform to stereotypes so easily? I'm a frat guy who doesn't own a polo shirt. I like that. I'm a Republican Bryan Griffin who enjoys indie music and concerts. I letters@a ligator org like that, too. But I want more than to just break stereotypes. I want to make this one shot at life everything it is potentially capable of being. And as much as I desire this, I also like to encourage this in others. I don't want the occasional dinner at Bennigan's with friends who grow farther apart the older I get. I want Great Gatsby parties and dialogues worthy of the ancient Greeks and Romans. I don't want to live in the suburban house with hardwood floors and granite counter tops. I want to live in a castle with a secret bookcase and a conservatory. I am not talking about being rich. I am talking about being different -not for the sake of being different but for the sake of the inherent fact that we are all different. Yet we allow each other to set our own standards of living and normalcy. That's simply how I define my "greatness." It is worth it to ask yourself what constitutes yours. Don't let life go by you without throwing in a jab. Some cannot appreciate serendipity; but it deserves more legitimacy than it is currently given. Everyone I spoke to about this summer's big blockbuster, "Inception," loved it, especially because the concept of constructing a unique world as one chooses is broadly appealing. Well, why do we have to be dreaming to make the world our own? On a note of encouragement, a simple message: It doesn't have to be black and white; paint the roses whatever color you like.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 5, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 7 Letter to the Editor Competition should extend to other services as well In Tuesday's Alligator, the Editorial Board took a strong stance in favor of adding more Gainesville utility providers, finally bringing the free market to our power and water and working to stop the city-controlled socialists at GRU. Frankly, I couldn't agree more. We should be asking members of the left-wing city commission why they won't let the free market work. They might say that adding another set of utilities would require tearing up the roads and building new power lines, or that the cost would be enormous, or that public utilities just don't work that way. But I say they are dead wrong. This is America. No task is too bold, and their naysaying is in the way of private industry. While we're tearing up the roads, why not build a second set of private, free market streets as well? The Florida Department of Transportation has held a monopoly on our roads ever since I was born, and it's high time we let competition prevail. The invisible hand of the free market needs to run its course, and creating competition for GRU is just the first step. Personally, I think we need competition in the fire department, as well. With their communist, state-owned services, it makes perfect sense why their trucks are all painted red. Jonathan Ossip 4LS oms is justifiable at times Guest column Limiting freed reedom is an addictive thing, isn't it? Each time we get a little bit more freedom to do anything, regardless of the positive or negative impacts, we cling to it like a mother clinging to her newly born baby. It is our baby. It is our everything. But why is this so? Why do we find it so difficult to let go of any kind of freedom? I would put my hard-earned Monopoly money on the reason being a human tendency, to grasp onto anything that enables us to express ourselves. Since expression can be quasi-defined as life, the opportunity to live to one's fullest potential, which I believe is infinite, can be equated as freedom. Normally when we speak about potential, we tend to be biased toward the positive possibilities. We have heard discussions of raw athletes reaching their true potential in quickness and strength through hard work and preparation. This doesn't accurately portray potentiality because it could either be directed toward the best or the worst. Potentiality refers to a future state. This can either be positive or negative depending on how you act in the present. And guess what, how you act in the present is always limited by the societal limits to your freedom. So why would society decide to limit your freedom? Is this ever justifiable? Or is it a ruse to dominate the masses? In some cases it is, and in some cases it is not. In fact, in UF's case, as in many advanced societies, there are both logical and moral reasons to limit an individual's freedom. It makes logical sense, when living as a self-sustaining group of individuals that each person's freedoms do not pose a justifiable threat to the goal of the society that is self-sustenance. Laws that punish for murder and theft have not only a moral basis but a logical push behind it. Since a majority of societies are formed to self-sustain and continue, it is reasonable for most societies to attempt to curb the apparently destructive potentialities of its citizens. Now, before dictators and oppressors rub their palms with glee, there is another dimension in this argument, and this involves the equality of each individual in the society, not in rank or intelligence or wealth but in human dignity or humanity. It is ironic that societies with the best basis of self-sustenance are actually those that allow the most individual freedoms tolerable to successful self-sustenance for obvious reasons such as greater expression of its members, leading to more creativity and risk taking. A moral argument for the justification of curbing individuals' freedoms in a society is that, since potentialities can be good or bad, and morally we would like what is in the best Chinedu 0. lkpechukwu Speaking Out %4I Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers aISign up before mmmc. a.tn .IWE Published: August 23 Final Deadline: August 6 Run your same ad from NSE and receive a 10% Pick up discount Call your sales rep today! 376-4452 aliigaIorj 5-piece band available for booking Call (352) 338-0938 or youtube.com/PolParsley What do people think about our teeny-tiny, itty-bitty, guilt free, and tasty 50 Calories per serving?

Check our daily flavors at www.gatordlites.COM interest of ourselves for others, it is taken as a general norm that such leaders of societies take steps to curb the negative or bad freedoms, which are in the best interest of all. At the crux of this argument is the unity of individuals as human beings. In essence, the judgments of what are good or bad for you, which would normally be controversial, in this instance are not up for debate. If we can agree that what is harmful to you is bad, then society can make clear and decisive actions to curb your freedom. UF recently passed a smoking ban earlier this month prohibiting students from using tobacco products on its main campus. If my writing has been persuasive enough, you would take the logical and moral view that this is one step in the right direction for the institution. We all are aware of the dangers of smoking, not only to smokers, but to nonsmokers who arguably have their own freedoms (to clean air) infringed upon. The fact is, yes, your freedoms have been curbed, and yes, there are logical and moral reasons that could be made for it. It may be unenforceable, but it sends a positive message to its students. Freedom is a beautiful thing, but the craving to hang onto the decisions to ultimately do us harm is not only immoral but silly. Let's try not to be silly. Chinedu 0.

This week we conclude our "campus losers" cartoon series with a bang. Dave's final summer column: A whole season in review LeBron James in Miami, Lohan in jail nd so, dear readers, here we are. Another summer in Gainesville has come and gone, and it's time we all look back and reflect on how much we've gone through. There have been plenty of things to remember over this past pseudo-semester, like that time where .um OK, confession time. I really don't remember much about this summer. I remember it getting so hot that my roommate melted and made a mess all over the rug, and then LeBron taking his talents to South Beach. Since then I've been listening to a loop of Eddie Murphy's hit single "Party All the Time" for weeks, while partying all the time. Unfortunately, it's the aforementioned partying that has rendered me completely unable to do a "Summer in Review" column without making most of this stuff up as I go. I'll start with something I've already mentioned. LeBron James, basketball player and monarch extraordinaire, will be playing for my hometown Miami Heat from now on. This is merely the next chapter in the ongoing saga of Florida sports teams seal-clubbing the state of Ohio. Actually, now that I think about it, the people of Ohio are much like seals: blubbery, helpless and terrible at sports. Thanks to the ongoing events in the Gulf of Mexico, we have achieved our dream of being able to run our cars off seawater, like Elisabeth Shue said we could in that movie "The Saint" with Val Kilmer. Dave Johnson Columnist S a d I y Lindsay Lohan was sent to jail for the murder of Val Kilmer, after her lawyers couldn't prove that the movie "MacGruber" already murdered him, or that Val Kilmer is actually still alive. Collectively, the world watched in horror as an alien race known as the "vuvuzela" descended on South Africa, and overtook the populace. The only thing that stopped them from taking over the world was their fascination with soccer. Obviously, the aliens do not have sports where they come from and were able to find soccer interesting for a whole month. Luckily, a psychic octopus was able to drive them off. "Toy Story 3" came out this summer, ending an 11 year wait for those kids who watched the original two and were young enough to truly appreciate it. Unfortunately, Pixar realized all those kids grew up and decided to make them feel like total jerks about ever giving a toy away. Also, my roommate Paul was reduced to a blubbering mass by the end credits, sputtering "Andy loves Woody, but knows it's time to let go!" He asked me not to mention that, but he's late on the rent. Gainesville and the rest of the East Coast had one of the hottest summers on record. I, and everyone else who bought Starcraft 2, didn't notice. Beyond that, literally nothing at all happened this summer. If anyone tries to tell you something that didn't show up in this column, then they're lying to you for the purposes of humor because he or she isn't able to think of anything else to come up with before deadline. And so, readers, there it is. The whole summer, laid out for you in probably accurate fashion. I hope you know how much fun it has been entertaining you guys this summer, as I'm uncertain as to my future in this position, and whether it will be available for me when fall rolls around. To improve my chances, voice your support by saying nothing at all to the higher-ups at the Alligator (to the higher-ups: hope you guys are ready for the overwhelming silence). See you next fall, kids. Editor's note: Dave Johnson is a great columnist but notoriously hard to reach. You can express your gratitude (or lack thereof) to him personally at djohnson338@gmail.com. See you in the fall, Dave.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 5, 2010 ALLIGATOR, 9 Colorful sunglasses trend is just clever marketing ploy By ANGELA FLATLAND compared to last year, and she has Greek organizations that have increase, she said.

Liz Chrisco, 22, a UF architecture senior, was one of the mobile advertisements, trekking through the Plaza of the Americas with a pair of neon pink sunglasses displaying "GEICO" by her left ear. Chrisco is an example of an easy advertising trend thissummerLocal businesses and organizations are taking advantage of the sunny weather by handing out plastic, brightly colored sunglasses with screen-printed logos for free to passersby. Premier Corp., a local marketing firm, makes the plastic eye wear, as well as other promotional items available for custom screen-printing. Stacey Todd, Premier's office manager since January 2009, said the popularity of sunglasses orders this year has significantly increased Dana Burke/ Alligator UF freshman Jordan Fine (left) and friends wear their free sunglasses as they walk to dinner on campus Monday night. They also have screen-printed sunglasses for apartment complexes like Cottage Grove. UF's Tau Epsilon Phi got its sunglasses printed with "TEP Formal '10" from MRL Promotions, a promotional advertising firm based in Fort Lauderdale. Lindsey Boyle, an employee of MRL since February, said that during spring and the beginning of summer a lot of Greek organizations were seeking these sunglasses. Boyle attributes the fashion industry's preference for neon colors as another reason for the trend's success. "Our formal was on the beach and we had previously done beach towels as our giveaway, so we thought sunglasses were ideal," said Justin Vines, who ordered the sunglasses from MRL for his fraternity, TEP. Chrisco said she will continue to wear her sunglasses even though she knows she is advertising for free. "I'm a broke college student.," Chrisco said. "Why would I say no to free sunglasses?" Nerd-core hip hop movement combines nerds By BRITTANY DAVIS avenue contributing writer If Eminem and Luke Skywalker got into a shouting match over a rap beat, and they referenced Halo, Harry Potter and hard drives, the result might sound like nerdcore. Simply put, nerdcore is rap music written by nerds and gamers for nerds and gamers, and according to Drew Love, who is organizing two Gainesville shows, the quirky and often goofy genre is picking up steam. In mid-July, about 700 people attended Nerdapalooza, an annual nerdcore music festival. Love, who works as a waiter and grew up playing Pokemon and Street Fighter, is trying to help nerdcore gain momentum in Gainesville, where he says nerds are plentiful. Rob Tobias, a UF computer sciences graduate who is friends with Love, said nerdcore is about being true to oneself. "People would rather hear a nerd rap about being a nerd then someone who is not gangster trying to rap about being a gangster," he said while sipping on a PBR. "There's the traditional jocks versus geeks stereotype, he said, but even some jocks are nerds deep down, whether they collect Magic The Gathering cards or baseball cards." "Everyone has got something they geek out over," Tobias said. Like traditional hip-hop, nerdcore has its share of controversy and feuds, most of which play out online. Artists have publicly argued over women, and there were feuds over control of the music sharing website, Rhyme Torrents. Some nerdcore artists have made fun of traditional hip-hop in their songs, prompting accusations that the genre is racist. "I'm not goingto say that none of it is insensitive to racial barriers," Tobias said. "But it's more University of Florida students, faculty and alumni get 6% off monthly cell phone charges AND waived activation fee -a $35 value! (Pssst, students! You can use your student Visa for credit approval!) Stop by to save with your University ID!

At its base, nerdcore is about havingfun, and the shows reflect that, Tobias said. An Aug. 14 show will feature HDNinja, MagiTek and Emergency Pizza Party. Krondor Krew, a group in which all the band members dress up like ninjas, and Epic-1 will perform Sep. 18. Both shows will be at The Laboratory and will offer a friendly introduction to nerdcore, Tobias said. "There's no pressure. There are just nerds." summerr arryout Dea s *0 OF

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, AUGUST 5, 2010 Humans vs. Zombies: Inside th By KAT BEIN avenue writer Editor's note: Kat Bein followed a group of humans around this weekend and wrote about her experiences. It was 9 p.m. Friday night when I found myself at the Reitz Union Colonnade. UF was dark and mostly deserted, but I wasn't alone. Inside the Reitz Union lobby, about 30 students stood huddled in groups, waiting anxiously for information from their leaders outside. Just beyond the colonnade steps waited the enemy, the scourge of the undead, the zombies. It was a couple of days after the infection broke out, the third time in UF campus history, and already more than 40 people had changed. I was glad to be a human, and though I wasn't armed, I was safe among these weathered warriors. Or at least, that's what I hoped. At about 9:15 p.m., the humans were called to muster. Dr. Muriel, the one woman who knew how to cookup a cure for the virus had been injured the night before and rescued by some brave young band of humans calling themselves the Basterds. Dr. Muriel told everyone she needed samples of the virus in order to recreate the cure in her lab, but the only samples she knew of were lost somewhere on campus, and we humans would need to scour the area for clues as to their whereabouts. I was nervous. We were safe where we were, but the humans would all be leavingsoon and I didn't want to get left behind. I found the group with the most guns and followed them. I was a Basterd tonight. Led by Nick LoCastro, a fourthyear microbiology student, the Basterds are a tough looking band of badasses. LoCastro was armed with three guns. Another Basterd, Cameron Conrad, was strapped to the nines with modified guns and a slew of sock-grenades draped across his chest. The Basterds, about 10 in all that night, headed toward the Infirmary. We'd gotten a hint that some clues could be found "where sick students go." LoCastro ordered us all to hush ourselves as we hustled through the shadows, guns cocked and ready in case of ambush. We snuck around the back way and came through the Florida Gym. We met a game moderator, thirdyear computer engineering major T.J. Boyd, on the steps of the clinic, and he told us to look for something blue. While the Basterds checked around, I stared at the body looming in front of us. I found out that was e campus i Derek Jones, the Original Zombie. I gulped. Someone found the clue -it was a hazmat suit and mask and a clue reading something about having only two minutes to be somewhere. There wasn't time to think what that meant because more zombies were rapidly gathering around. LoCastro ordered the Basterds to huddle, AKA I tried my best to get in the middle. The air was tense, and there was an uncomfortable calm before the storm as the zombies Photo illustration by Thomas Plevik/ Alligator Staff Humans vs. Zombies just finished its third run on UF campus. Zombie Loic Robertson, 22, tries to figure out what to eat now that brains are off the menu. The game ran from Wednesday, July 28, to Saturday, July 31. nfection circled around us, then, suddenlyAAHHHHHHHHH!!!! The zombies roared and rushed our group. I screamed and put my hands on my ears as Nerf bullets shot past my head. I was confused. I thought I felt a zombie's hand brush my face. But when the noise deadened and reality set in, I was still alive. I was lucky. The zombies were only stunned for the next 10 minutes. There was no time to grieve. We took cover inside the Florida Gym before regrouping in McCarty Hall. One of the Basterds told me the chilling tale of how, last year, about 40 students were infected where we stood in a bloodbath referred to as the McCarty Feast. We met with Dr. Muriel. She told us it wasn't looking good. Since we left the Reitz Union Colonnade about an hour and a half ago, the zombies had taken the lead and we Basterds, along with another group of maybe three or four somewhere else, were the only humans left. On top of that, some humans had discovered the coolers hidden in McCarty woods that contained the cure, but they had gone in before realizing the woods were "poisoned," and technically they should have been dead for going in without the hazmat suits. The mission was pretty much a failure for the humans, and so plans were scrapped. The zombies were declared winners. But there was hope for tomorrow, and Dr. Muriel promised lots of cure cards to even the playing field the next morning. Three times running and humans vs. zombies is still working out the kinks.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 5, 2010 *ALLIGATOR, 11 Hot Water Music frontman struggles to find balance By ALEX ORLANDO avenue writer He steps up to the microphone eyes shut, sweat streaming down his face and guitar -as the raspy sound of his voice cuts through the twangy, bluegrass sound of his band. His thick, brownish-red beard almost touches the microphone as he sings and bangs out chords on his worn acoustic guitar, the pickguard long gone. He may not look like it, but even now, as he entertains screams of "Chuck yeah!" from the audience between sets while casting a serene look on the crowd -the kind you give your family after you've just finished Thanksgiving dinner Chuck Ragan is fighting for balance. That's because he's headed out on the road again, a road that offered him thousands of screaming fans when he started as the frontman for punk band Hot Water Music. It was also a road that he hated coming back from -back to the reality of eviction notices tacked to the doors of empty houses that he used to call home. Back to hauling his belongings from trash cans in the front yards of those houses. Back to donating blood to make rent payments. That was the life Ragan had called normal until 2006, when the band went on an indefinite hiatus to deal with the exhaustion, relationships and personal lives of its members after a run of touring between 1997 and 2005. "You can only run a machine for so long before it needs maintenance," he said. Since then, aside from some touring and writing music independently, Ragan said he has been focusing on life in Gainesville. He said he's been spending time with his wife, fishing with friends on Orange Lake and around Shell Mound near Cedar Key and bringing back the fish to throw on the grill and sit in his lawn chair. "You havetofind a balance between doingwhatyou love, makinga livingand runningyourself into the dirt," he said. Since the band reunited and revamped itself in 2008, Ragan said he's gotten better about that balance between music and the rest of his life. He said he realized that last week when he was sitting on his porch in Gainesville, writing songs with the rest of the band, just like before his rigorous and costly tour schedule. But, he said, some things still haven't changed.

Sports THURSDAY, AUGUST 5, 2010 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Brantley t By ANTHONY CHIANG Alligator Staff Writer achiang@alligator org A new era is about to begin. Former Gators quarterback Tim Tebow, who is in Denver participating in practices as a member of the Denver Broncos, is gone. In steps redshirt junior John Brantley -Florida's new signal caller. "Well, you can't replace (Tebow)," senior safety Ahmad Black said. "You only hope to keep up the tradition, and keep up what he's done." But as UF begins its training camp today, Brantley will look to create his own legacy. The Ocala native is more of a pocket passer than Tebow was, but will provide less with his legs. Last season, Brantley threw for 410 yards and seven touchdowns to go along with zero interceptions in seven games, mostly in mop-up duty for Tebow. "Well, you can't replace (Tebow). You only hope to keep up the tradition, and keep up what he's done." Ahmad Black UF senior safety "We're not going to run our quarterback as much," center Mike Pouncey said. "He's not as big as Superman was." However, UF coach Urban Meyer does not expect that dynamic to change the offensive scheme very much if there are other weapons that can spread the field. "(Our offensive scheme) is not going to be dictated as much by the quarterback," Meyer said. "I know what he can do. It's the people around him." Even though the two primary offensive targets from last season, wide receiver Riley Cooper and tight end Aaron Hernandez, are now in the NFL -the Gators expect even more playmakers to step up this year. Wide receiver Deonte Thompson, who struggled at times and accumulated just 343 yards through the air last season, is expected to be the deep threat and the leader of this year's receiving core. But the players that could end up benefitting the most from Meyer's deegins new cision to stick with the spread offense are speedy wide receivers Andre Debose and Chris Rainey, who made the move to the position from running back in the offseason. Debose, who Pouncey said would be the offensive player to emerge this year, came into UF last season as the No. 2 wide receiver recruit, according to Rivals.com. But he never had the chance to play because of a hamstring injury. Debose has received comparisons to Percy Harvin and could play the same role in this offense. Other potential passing targets chapter for Brantley are redshirt senior Carl Moore and redshirt sophomore Omarius Hines. Brantley will be able to spread the ball around. But the biggest benefit he may have is the experience he has gained from watching Tebow handle the position for the last three seasons. "John Brantley, he's had a great run at Florida," Pouncey said. "He's been there three years, learning from one of the best quarterbacks that played the game. He's ready to lead this team to a championship." Harrison Diamond / Alligator Staff UF redshirt junior John Brantley (12) threw for seven touchdowns as a backup in 2009. He takes over for Tim Tebow at quarterback this year. UF FOOTBALL FAN DAY U The UF football team will hold its fan day on Aug. 15 from 1 to 3 p.m. in the O'Connell Center. Gators players and coaches will be in attendance to sign autographs. TEEING OFF WITH TOM GREEN EYankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez hit his 600th homer Wednesday, making him the seventh player to reach the milestone, and the third to do it with steroids. .Brett Favre is wavering on his decision to retire again. In other shocking developments, the sky is blue and the sun sets in the west. .The Favre saga is taking over ESPN -again. Where is LeBron James when you need him? Gators fans should leave lofty expectations at the door he Gators open up their preseason training camp today, and that can only mean one thing around these parts: UF fans already have their eyes on a trip to Glendale, Ariz., in January. But before they get their hopes up too much, I think now would be the best time to warn fans to curb their expectations for this year's football team, because there are sure to be a few bumps in the road. Now, I know many of you have been spoiled the last four years, with two Southeastern Conference titles, two BCS titles and a Heisman-winning quarterback who just so happened to be one of the greatest -if not the greatest -college football players of all time. But that was the past. Tim Tebow is gone, as are his two favorite receiving targets from last season in Riley Cooper and Aaron Hernandez. Add in the losses of Joe Haden, who was arguably the best shutdown cornerback in the nation, linebackers Brandon Spikes and Ryan Stamper, safety Major Wright and defensive ends Carlos Dunlap and Jermaine Cunningham, and it adds up to a lot of voids to fill from a team that went 13-1 and didn't even win its conferTom Green ence championship. Those losses leave many The Tom Green Show questions surrounding this tgreen@alligatororg team -questions that fans won't find out the answer to until at least Sept. 11 against South Florida in the Gators' only real test before they begin their SEC schedule. The biggest questions remain on offense, where John Brantley will take over for Tebow. Brantley has been highly touted coming into the season, and by all accounts, he has the tools to be a great player by the time he leaves UF. But he has yet to prove anything as a starter. More uncertainty revolves around the pieces surrounding Brantley on offense. Who will emerge as the team's go-to receivers? "We have a lot of talent," coach Urban Meyer said at SEC Media Days last month. "I can't list you the top six or seven playmakers in order. I know we have them." Meyer can't list them in order because it's clearly an unknown commodity. The potential is there for Brantley and the playmakers, but it's just a matter of turning that potential into production during games. The Gators also bring in the No. 2 recruiting class, according to Rivals.com, and some of those freshmen are sure to have positive impacts this season. But they won't all pan out immediately -if at all. So before you go booking a trip to Glendale in January, Gators fans, take off the orange-and-blue-tinted shades and look at this team for what it really is -talented, but unproven. UF BASKETBALL E The Gators released their non-conference schedule for the upcoming season Tuesday. It includes a home game against Ohio State on Nov. 16 and a neutral-site matchup against Kansas State on Dec. 18.

20, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, AUGUST 5, 2010 No. I Alabama: Crimson Tide look to defend title 0 THEY LOSE 11 STARTERS COMBINED ON OFFENSE AND DEFENSE. By TOM GREEN Alligator Writer tgreen@alligator org Alabama finished last season atop the college football world, and that's exactly where it begins this season, coming in as the unanimous No. 1 in the alligatorSports' preseason college football poll. But coach Nick Saban, who has won national championships at both LSU and Alabama, knows that was last season and in order to get back to the top this year, his team will have to stay hungry and stay focused. And that will be no easy feat. "You really can't look in the rearview mirror and be able to accomplish these things," Saban said at Southeastern Conference Media Days last month. "You have to look forward and stay focused on the present moment in terms of what it takes to be successful." As if repeating as national champions in college football isn't difficult enough -Nebraska was the last school to win back-toback titles in 1994 and 1995 (both Associated Press titles) -Alabama will have to replace a lot of components of last year's title-winning team. The Tide lose 11 starters combined on offense and defense, plus their kicker and punter. Of the losses, Alabama's defense takes the biggest hit, losing eight of 11 starters from last year. Out of those eight defensive players, six were drafted in April's NFL Draft, including linebacker Rolando McClain (105 total tackles, four sacks, two interceptions), cornerbacks Kareem Jackson (49 tackles, 13 passes broken up) and Javier Arenas (71 tackles, five interceptions, five sacks), and behemoth defensive tackle/ gap-plugger Terrence Cody (28 tackles, six tackles for a loss). Despite those losses, Alabama does return a starter at each level of the defense. In the secondary, defensive back Mark Barron returns to lead the defense. He led the team with seven interceptions -including I Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff Alabama Heisman-winning running back Mark Ingram returns this season, along with sophomore Trent Richardson, to give the Crimson Tide a dangerous rushing duo. one for a touchdown -and was second in tackles with 76. At linebacker, Dont'a Hightower returns after an injury that kept him out of all but four games in 2009. Saban has said Hightower could move around on defense and play multiple roles. On the line, Alabama returns BCS title game MVP Marcell Dareus, who led the team with six and a half sacks last year. However, his status is up in the air, as he is the subject of an ongoing NCAA investigation. While the defense is going through quite a makeover, the offense should look familiar. The Tide return eight starters, including running back Mark Ingram, who rushed for 1,658 yards and 17 touchdowns en route to becoming the first player in school history to win the Heisman. Joining Ingram in the backfield is Trent Richardson, who rushed for 751 yards and eight scores as a freshman behind Ingram. The two will combine to form arguably the best one-two punch in college football. Quarterback Greg McElroy, who hasn't lost a game as a starter since the eighth grade and did an ample job of managing the offense in his first year as a starter for Alabama, also returns, as does his favorite target, wide receiver Julio Jones. To make things even easier for those skill players on offense, three starters return on the offensive line, so the offense shouldn't lose a step. And if Saban can get the newcomers on defense to buy into his scheme, Alabama is a real threat to repeat as national champions. r Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers Butler Plaza Newberry Square 335-1232 332-3937 Are you interested in a career in education?
