Shooter attacks six before killing himself

By JON SILMAN
Alligator Staff Writer

S - A Gainesville man shot six people and then killed
- - himself in an east Gainesville shooting spree on
. . Monday.
" One victim was killed, and the other five were in
surgery as of Monday night, police said in a press
conference.
The suspect is Clifford Miller Jr., 24, who was
r found with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the
head in a red Chevrolet truck at 2306 SE 46th Ter-
race.
Police were flooded with 911 calls between 4:03
p.m. and 4:16 p.m. as Miller rampaged through east
Gainesville. The shootings took place at six separate
locations within a three-mile radius.
Police said they do not yet know the
Breaking relationship between the victims and
News the suspect. Neighbors and witnesses
said they believed Miller was specifi-
cally targeting at least some of the victims.
One of the houses where a body was found, 914
SE 10th Ave., is the residence of the suspect's father,
Clifford L. Miller Sr., 52. Family and neighbors said
the suspect killed his father, but police would not yet
confirm the victim's name.
All of the victims were adult males, and their inju-
ries ranged from "minor to very serious," according
to Lt. Steve Maynard of the Alachua County Sheriff's
Matt Tripp / Alligator Staff Office.
Tonya Small, the sister of the alleged shooter, Clifford Miller Jr., recovers after fainting when the body of her father, Clif- Police said they do not yet have a motive for the
fard Miller Sr., was moved from his home Monday evening by medical examiners, according to neighbors and relatives, shooting.


STUDENT GOVERNMENT BUDGET

SG budget explained


By CAROLYN TILLO
Alligator Staff Writer

They drain students' pockets, but
many students don't know what they
are. Activity and service fees fund ser-
vices offered through Student Govern-
ment, the Reitz Union and RecSports,
and they generate millions of dollars.
The 2010 to 2011 Activity and Service
Fee Budget for UF is almost $16 million,
according to Student Government doc-
uments obtained by the Alligator.
UF students are paying $12.38 per
credit hour in activity and service fees,
compared to last year's fees of $10.65
per credit hour, a result of the Florida
Legislature's decision to lift a cap that
prevented tuition and fees from rising


more than 5 percent each year.
For 2010 to 2011 only, the Higher Ed-
ucation Conforming Bill allows public
universities in Florida to increase their
fees up to 15 percent or by the amount
needed to reach the state average.
This year's increased activity and
service fees added $1.56 million to the
UF Activity and Service Fees budget.

See SG budget breakdown on pg. 3

Of these funds, $747,842 will be
distributed to the Reitz Union to sup-
port additional staff to oversee student
groups, and $812,155 will be distributed
to RecSports to help pay for the South-
west Recreation Center expansion and
for additional staff.


UF grant take tops chart


By JOEY FLECHAS
Alligator Staff Writer

The state legislature has awarded UF
$600,000 in research grants to fund alter-
native energy and health care technology
research.
In the spring, the legislature allocated
$2 million to fund the commercialization
of products and technologies that result
from university research.
Twenty-one projects from 10 state uni-
versities were approved to receive part of
the funding.
Four projects will be based at UF, which
is receiving the largest award out of the 10
universities.
"At UF, we certainly have the largest


research enterprise in the state," said UF
spokesman Steve Orlando.
One of the UF projects aims to market
a new technology that allows medical pro-
viders to track prescribed pills or capsules
and make sure patients are :,.11J.i ii'" to a
medication regimen.
Another will try to produce a market-
ready, portable energy-generating unit

Look, Ma, no hands: Man plans 300-mile hands-free Harley ride


ADRIAN, Mich. - A man plans to ride
his Harley-Davidson about 300 miles from
the Mackinac Bridge in Michigan to the
Ohio border without using his hands to
steer to raise money for Parkinson's disease
research.
Phil Comar of Adrian told The Daily
Telegram that the Sunday ride is in memory
of his father, Robert, who died in 2008. He
wants to raise $3,000 with the ride for the
Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's


Research.
The 61-year-old has been riding motor
bikes and motorcycles almost 50 years, and
said he'll steer with his legs and by leaning.
An extra gas tank has been added to the back
of his motorcycle so he can go nonstop.
Comar plans to ride to the bridge that
connects Michigan's Upper Peninsula and
Lower Peninsula on Saturday - no-handed
at times.

Campus offers


flu vaccinations
By KIMBERLY DEWITT
Alligator Contributing Writer

The Student Health Care Center kicked off its 2010
Influenza Campaign with free flu vaccinations Monday
for UF students at the Reitz Union.
Kelly Mitchell, registered nurse and coordinator of
the campaign, said the center ordered 10,000 doses of
the vaccine this year, twice as many as last year. In 2009,
all 5,000 doses were used and Mitchell hopes students,
faculty and staff will once again take advantage of the
services.
"In the past we have had shortage issues and delayed
shipping problems," she said. "Rarely does everything
go exactly as planned. But so far so good for now, al-
though it's only the first day."
John Hinchee, a fifth-year environmental science stu-
dent, was one of the many students who received the
shot Monday.
"In the past we have had shortage issues and
delayed shipping problems."
Kelly Mitchell
Registered nurse

No stranger to the illness, Hinchee contracted the
H1N1 virus, or swine flu, last year while studying
abroad in Australia.
"The fourteen-hour plane ride home from Australia
was rough," he said. "I'd much rather have the flu shot
this year than have to deal with that nonsense again."
The vaccines are free to students but are available to
employees for $25. Outreach clinics accept cash or check
only.


Sitting within the Siege
Students sit as they attend a military ceremony while soldiers stand guard in front of the government
palace in Quito, Ecuador, Monday. Ecuador is under a state of siege, with the military in charge of public
order, after soldiers rescued Ecuador's President Rafael Correa Thursday from a hospital where he'd been
surrounded by police who roughed him up and tear-gassed him earlier.




1 RTS to add 25 buses, build new facility


* IT RECEIVED A $10.6-MILLION GRANT.

By ALEXANDER KLAUSNER
Alligator Writer

A little more than a month after setting a new re-
cord for riders in a single day, Regional Transit Sys-
tem has broken its record for riders in a month and
riders in a single year.
The news was followed by the announcement
that the company is receiving a $10.6 million grant
from the Department of Transportation to build a
new maintenance facility and expand the fleet by 25
buses.
"It really got everybody energized over here in the
office," said Chip Skinner, spokesman for RTS.
During the month of the September, about 1.15
million people rode RTS buses, breaking the previous
record set in 2009 by 31,042 riders.
September is RTS' busiest month because of the
large influx of new students on campus, according to
Skinner.


"It's a great benefit to have our partnership with
the University of Florida," he said. "We couldn't have
broken that record without the faculty, students and
staff of UF choosing public transit and choosing the
green option for their transportation needs."
About 9.37 million people rode the bus from Oct.
1, 2009 to the same date this year, breaking the previ-
"Hopefully we will be able to expand on the
number of routes and the service that we
provide to the public."
Chip Skinner
Spokesman for RTS

ous year's record by about 300,000 riders.
Construction on the new facility could begin as
soon as 2011, and Skinner estimated the facility would
be completed by 2013.
"With the expansion of fleets and the facility, hope-
fully we will be able to expand on the number of
routes and the service that we provide to the public,"
he said.


SG votes to let election violations slide


* VIOLATORS WERE WARNED.

By KAT BEIN
Alligator Staff Writer

The Student Government Election
Commission voted unanimously to
let election code violators off with a
warning Monday night.
The commission considered two
election complaints filed during last
week's SG election.
The first complaint accused Stu-
dent Alliance party spokesman


Yevgen Sautin and independent
Sen. Neil Gundavda of distributing
unregistered and unapproved fliers
around campus. The fliers misrep-
resented the platform of the Unite
Party.
Sen. Alan Ya-
Student nuck, who ran
Government independently
this semester and
filed the complaint, said the defen-
dants had committed "obvious vio-
lations."
The four-member council gave


each of the accused persons a warn-
ing, citing a lack of hard evidence for
a harsher punishment.
The second complaint was filed
because 10 independent candidates
turned in their campaign finance
reports late or not at all. They also
received warnings.
All complaints previously filed
by members of the Unite Party were
dropped before the meeting.
Before the meeting adjourned,
the committee voted to validate the
results of the election.


Secretary of ed.


holds conference
By CJ PRUNER
Alligator Staff Writer

While some may view the combination of slashed bud-
gets and skyrocketing costs as the death knell for the af-
fordable college education in America, U.S. Secretary of
Education Arne Duncan sees it as nothing more than an-
other round of challenges for what he still considers the
greatest educational system in the world.
In a phone conference Monday, Duncan reassured stu-
dent reporters that the government is doing all it can to
keep students in school at a reasonable price.
"[A college education] has never been more important,"
Duncan said. "But it's never been more expensive."
While Duncan acknowledged problems within the edu-
cational system like keeping costs down and preparing
students to finish college, he pointed to increases in federal
funding and the simplifying of the Free Application for
Federal Student Aid as positive signs.
The conference call was sponsored by
MTV and the College Board as a part of
their "Get Schooled CollegeAffordability
Challenge," which allows students from
across the nation to propose new ideas
to revamp the financial aid system.
Gaston Caperton, former governor of
Duncan West Virginia and current president of
The College Board, said a lot of the prob-
lems facing the American educational system are due to a
combination of overspending and failing to save.
A solution may hinge on the federal government's abil-
ity to raise taxes, he said. He acknowledged that some
Americans may not appreciate such a measure, but he said
a better-educated America would outweigh the cost.
"It wasn't the popular thing to do, but it was the right
thing to do," he said.

Defender retires to teach


lawyers in Afghanistan


By MARISSA PRIETO
Alligator Contributing Writer

Rick Parker has spent more than a
quarter of a century working for people
who can't afford to hire a lawyer. Now,
he's moving to Afghanistan to train
young Afghan lawyers.
Rick Parker, 63, has served as the
Eighth Judicial Circuit public defender
in Alachua County since 1984.
Now, he'll train lawyers through
Pacific Architects and Engineers Inc., a
private company under contract with
the U.S. State Department.
It all started in May when he re-
ceived an e-mail through the Florida
Public Defenders Association from PAE
Inc. with one-year job opportunities for
those interested in serving as criminal
defense advisers in Afghanistan.
Parker had recently decided with his
wife Kathy that he was not going to run
for re-election in 2012.
"Part of the problem of looking for a
new job is that sometimes you find one
before you're really ready to take it," he
said. "I don't think the position will be
available if I wait, so I've decided to take
advantage of the unique opportunity."
The exact duties and responsibilities
of the job will be unknown to Parker un-
til he is approved for flight and arrives
in Kabul, Afghanistan. The company
has offices in seven other provinces, and
Parker could end up at any of them.
The goal, Parker said, is to create a


stable nation that can resist the Taliban
and deny a home to al-Qaida.
"If we can accomplish those things,
it will make Europe and America both
safer places to live," he said.
Parker had a previous interest in
Afghanistan and was familiar with the
U.S. mission there. Parker works with a
man who served two one-year contracts
in Afghanistan and a woman whose
husband is in Afghanistan now. Parker
talked with the woman's husband about
his experiences.
"Looking at his pictures and getting
to talk to him about it, I thought it was
a very noble thing to
do," Parker said.
"We're going to
be doing the best
we can to stay away
from the dangerous
situations," Parker
said. One risk, he
Parker said, is roadside
bombs. The lawyers
will travel in armored vehicles.
"I feel blessed to have this chance to
do something that I consider to be help-
ful, while at the same time .:-I,:I.' i ,'c,-
myself to do something totally different
than what I'm used to," he said.
He isn't sure when he'll fly to Af-
ghanistan, but he expects it will be be-
fore the end of the year. As for the open
position of public defender, Parker said
Stacy Scott, an assistant public defender
in Alachua County, will be his recom-
mendation to Gov. Charlie Crist.

Sexy Studies

Teens using condoms

more often
Americans are having a lot of sex.
And things are getting freakier and friskier.
The National Survey of Sexual Health and Behav-
ior, which appeared in the Journal of Sexual Medicine Monday,
paints one of the largest and naughtiest images of America's
collective sex life, and some of the results are, well, just keep
reading.
America is stretching the limits of its definition of normal
and lubing it up with a side of cherry-flavored kinky.
According to the study, respondents participated in a rep-
ertoire of more than 40 hide-your-eyes sex acts and positions
during their most recent sexual encounter.
Forty? We must be a bunch of prudes, but we got stuck nam-
ing positions at about 17. Good work, America! Happy hump-
ing!
Fifteen percent of respondents also reported having a sexual
history involving at least some same-sex action. Interestingly,
only 7 percent of those respondents reported their sexuality as
something "other than heterosexual."
And in a nod to the lovable Bill Clinton and his tagline more
famous than "not inhaling," America seems to also be having
a hard (so many puns) time defining what dirty deeds can be
called sex.
And the study makes us proud of kiddies across the nation.
According to the study, 83 percent of teens reported using a
condom during their most recent sexual encounter. But only 22
percent of adult males reported wrapping up.
So keep passing out those free condoms, GatorWell.
And remember, Gators, if you don't use one, like the 83 per-
cent of teens who do, you will get pregnant, and you will die.


Fare trials


ixth Amendment,
Schmixth Amendment!
In a New York Uni-
versity law school report
released Monday, of the 15
states with the highest pris-
on populations, one of those
being our very own penal-
fall peninsula, 13 imposed
some hefty charges for those
seeking public defendants.
In an obvious contrast
to the Sixth Amendment,
which states the accused
shall "have the Assistance
of Counsel for his [or her]
defense," the finding obvi-
ously flips T. Jefferson and
ole' Mr. Madison over in
their graves.
Although the sixth in-
stallment in the Bill of Rights
doesn't explicitly say coun-
sel should be provided free
of charge, the study finds
poorer criminals will, in ef-
fect, have worse representa-
tion and a higher chance of
wrongful conviction as they


are unable to afford some of
the public defenders' rates
that can reach nearly $1,300.
The American Civil Lib-
erties Union has spoken out
after the study's release, say-
ing the study labels Ameri-
ca, where liberty and justice
for all are *...j.::t ....- j super
important, as a two-tiered
system of justice where rich
Americans have a greater
chance of accessing fair le-
gal representation.
But then again, the Na-
tional Districts Attorney As-
sociation said it's "only fair"
dirt poor criminals should
have to fork up the dough
they don't have.
This study tells us all one
thing about America's val-
ues: Greed is good.
Apparently so good it
trumps constitutionality.
Everyone deserves equal
representation no matter
how many Benjamins he or
she can fork over.

Today's question: Do you watch
"Teen Mom"?


ALLIGATOR
www.alligator.org/opinion


,RTS PRECENTlY SAW RECORD NUMBER OF PASSEHt`4rES.-.


Column

'Teen Mom' signals
everybody with cable TV and a proclivity toward
captivating car-wreck television has an opinion
on the sorta-famous young mothers on MTV's
"Teen Mom," but this week marks the first time police
started a case against someone based solely on what the
baby momma did on MTV.
MTV giveth, and MTV taketh away.
"Teen Mom" is a runaway hit television show that
may or may not glamorize teen pregnancy.
The only things I'm sure "Teen Mom" glamorizes
are wearing sweatpants and completely ignoring your
children.
However, an Indiana girl named Amber Portwood is
currently under investigation by police and Child Pro-
tective Services in her hometown for mercilessly beat-
ing her baby daddy, Gary Shirley, in the last episode of
this season's "Teen Mom."
If the police decide to rewind the DVR and watch
the rest of this season, they may just take away Port-
wood's baby and place it in a more safe and secure loca-
tion where it can have a better chance at a normal life
- somewhere like an industrial mine in Mongolia or
inside a den of angry bears.
The bears would easily recognize the child's father as
one of their own, as he is roughly the size of a teenage
grizzly and hibernates for half the year. Bears, though,
would be immediately disappointed in Shirley's work
ethic and inability to do anything remotely productive
in life other than pick up ugly girls in the diaper aisle
at Walmart.
Portwood and Shirley are just one of the four sets of
parents on "Teen Mom" who have agreed to have every
detail of their depressing lives scrutinized by millions


demise of America
of people.
In exchange for a sniff of what
passes for fame in the Facebook
Age, these improbable American
idols reveal every torturous mo-
ment to a global television audi-
Tommy Maple ence and provide endless digital
letters@alligatororg fodder min the form of video clips
and message-board material.
We watched as Portwood was brought to tears by a
particularly vexing computerized GED test and cringed
as she screamed at her baby for being too needy and
weepy.
A nation held its collective breath as Shirley excruci-
ated over the most important decision he makes on any
given day - pizza or hot wings.
I guess all the world's a stage, and the men and
women are merely players.
But it is still important to note the above passage did
not originate in a song by Drake or Kanye.
It is a hallmark of modern American society when we
have the ability to boil down complex issues that bleed
across numerous socio-economic and cultural boundar-
ies into a t :.1.11 ,i, tweet or a "Like" button.
Yet the struggles of teen moms make for such com-
pelling material precisely because they are such a per-
sonal and sensitive matter, and societies exist largely
to shelter and hopefully cultivate stronger bonds than
the ones we see strained by the cartoonish violence of a
dumb, chunky girl on MTV.
Et tu, Amber?

Letters to the Editor
Columnist misses point about Fox News
Chris Dodson's criticism of President Barack Obama's
campaign against Fox misses the point.
MSNBC is certainly partisan, but that does not mean it
has anything in common with Fox.
There is a difference between being partisan and ly-
ing.
On health care, Fox lied.
MSNBC got it right.
On the New York City mosque, Fox unabashedly em-
ployed racism and hate-mongering.
MSNBC employed compassion and common sense.
From a fact-checking point of view, Fox and MSNBC have
nothing in common.
MSNBC could probably do its message a favor and
tone down the sensationalism.
However, if methods of research and journalism with
a sense of integrity lead an organization to support one
party over another, as displayed with NPR, we should be
careful not to mistake this happening for partisan hack-
ery.
I encourage anyone who disagrees to fact check Fox
News and MSNBC.

Free market leads to tragic effects
William Tew's Monday letter to the editor and his sug-
gestion that socialist governments have more frequently
brain-washed their citizens than capitalist governments
should be called into question.
Tew should be reminded he lives in a country which,
through the CIA, has actively sabotaged the economies
of dozens of leftist countries around the world, surrepti-
tiously started wars that have killed millions of people,
overthrown dozens of democratically elected leaders,
staged public opinion polls and planted newspaper arti-
cles mostly at the direction of the capitalist-spawned U.S.
corporations that wanted to sell their products in those
countries.
Indeed, the free market gives fruitful results in many
industries, but tragic effects occur when unfettered profit
pursuit drives all business activity.

suicides


Guest column

Negligence caus
am furious and cannot keep silent any longer. For
those who are not aware, there has been a series
of suicides over the last few weeks with a com-
mon theme: people who were being harassed for
their sexuality. We all (or at least should) remember
Matthew Shepard, the gay student at the University
of Wyoming who was brutally beaten and left on a
split-rail fence in the middle of nowhere to die.
His horrific death prompted a wave of hate-crime
awareness and led to attempts to codify anti-hate
crime legislation in the form of the Matthew Shepard
Act. This was in 1998. This act wasn't passed until
2009. Why?
Because our nation does not view gay and lesbian
people as human beings deserving of equality and
acceptance.
It's been 12 years since Shepard's gruesome
death, and one might think progress has been made
in the area of protection against hate crimes. Well, it
hasn't.
The nation was shocked in February 2008 when
Lawrence King, a 15-year-old middle school student,
was shot in the head by a 14-year-old student while
at school. He was shot because he had attempted
to befriend someone who had been taught that gay
people were evil, that gay people were not human.
This prompted another wave of media coverage and
lent enough credence to get the Matthew Shepard
Act passed in 2009.
Once again, the nation could sweep this issue un-
der the rug because gay and lesbian people had got-
ten their protection, and we could go back to worry-
ing about the latest season of "American Idol."
Lawrence King has faded from the collective mind
of the public, and new issues occupy our attention.
Yet again, the issue of anti-gay harassment raises its
brutish head, in an even more shocking event.
This time, an 11-year-old student hanged him-
self. There are people on this campus with children
around that age. How would you feel, parents, if you
came home and your child had killed himself or her-
self? How would you feel, especially, if you knew of
the issue that caused this and had :._ :.1,_Il noti-
fied your child's school, but the school did nothing
to stop this harassment?
This is what happened in Massachusetts in April
2009.


We are seeking volunteers for a study of muscle and

jaw function. Participants must be between 18 and 44
years old and in generally good health. Compensation

IJ UNIVERSITY of
UF FLORIDA


Sterling Davenport Carl Joseph Walker-
Speaking Out Hoover, unable to bear
the load of daily torment
by his classmates, took his
own life. His mother notified the school weekly lead-
ing up to this, pleading with it to step in and stop this
harassment.
All this does is say to survivors, "Your child was
not worthy of protection, and your child is not wor-
thy of remembrance."
I'm going to list some names of children who
are now dead because of harassment based on their
sexual orientation. July 9, Justin Aaberg, 15, Min-
nesota, hanged himself after continual harassment
at school. Sept. 9, Billy Lucas, 15, Indiana, hanged
himself after being constantly tormented at school,
with the full knowledge of the administration. Sept.
19, Seth Walsh, 13, California, hanged himself after
being forced to transfer schools due to harassment
over his sexuality. Sept. 22, Tyler Clementi, 18, fresh-
man at Rutgers University, New Jersey, jumped
from a bridge after his roommate broadcast him be-
ing intimate with another man over his Facebook
and Twitter feed. Sept. 23, Asher Brown, 13, Texas,
shot himself in the head after continual harassment
at school. Sept. 29, Raymond Chase, 19, openly gay
sophomore at Johnson and Wales University, Rhode
Island, hanged himself in unknown circumstances in
his dorm room.
Did we take any impact from Matthew Shepard?
From Larry King? From Carl Joseph Walker-Hoover?
Did we change the casual nature of homophobic
slang in our culture? Did we recognize we needed to
do something about this issue? No.
Now we have six more deaths on our hands. Six
children dead for senseless, thoughtless reasons. Let
this be a lesson to us all. Words and actions have real-
world consequences. Let us not have these children
lose their lives in vain.
I hope you will join me in an effort to stop ha-
rassment, stop violence and let the families of these
children and other children who are struggling with
the same issues know we are committed to finding a
solution to this increasingly dangerous problem.
We cannot let another child die because of our
negligence.
Sterling Davenport, 4LS

Lemmens becomes integral part of Gators' run defense


* THE UF DEFENSE WILL
FACE THE SEC'S LEADING
RUSHER SATURDAY.

By MIKE McCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alligator org

After being what he called "a
serviceable backup" for three
years, Duke Lemmens has found
a home in Florida's defense.
When the Gators use their
run-stopping scheme, Lemmens
moves from defensive end to
strongside linebacker, a role that
gives him more ground to cover
and more responsibility as the
hybrid player in UF's heavy pack-
age.
"It's definitely been a long time
since I didn't have my hand in the
dirt," Lemmens said. "It makes
me feel like an athlete again."
He has to be. The 6-foot-3,
250-pounder is responsible for
getting past the opposing tight
end to stop run plays and provid-
ing support against the passing
game.
That requires more versatil-
ity than his main position on the
end of the line, but Lemmens has
made the transition smoothly.
He racked up a career-high
eight tackles - seven in the first
half - during Saturday's loss
at Alabama, topping the previ-
ous high he set in the first game


he played in the heavy package
against Tennessee.
"The two games he played,
Tennessee and this one, he kind
of had [career games] because he
was using his athleticism to run
all over the place and be a highly-
energized ._,-. " UF coach Urban
Meyer said. "He played extreme-


ly well - played his best game."
Meyer will need the senior to
replicate that performance this
weekend against LSU. For the
third time in four games, the
Gators will face the Southeastern
Conference's leading rusher.
The Tigers' Stevan Ridley
holds that distinction with 557


yards and four touchdowns in
five games (5.7 yards per carry),
and he's coming off a 123-yard
performance against Tennessee.
"Their back is a tough one,"
Meyer said. "He's tough and
physical. That's where they're go-
ing to go with it, or we're guess-
ing that's the direction they're go-

ing to head."
Meyer and defensive coordi-
nator Teryl Austin had the same
feeling about what the Crimson
Tide would try to do on offense:
pound the ball with running
backs Mark Ingram and Trent
Richardson.
The Gators countered with the
heavy package, and the results
were mixed.

"It's definitely been a long
time since I didn't have my
hand in the dirt. It makes
me feel like an athlete
again."
Duke Lemmens
UF defensive end

The Tide's backfield duo com-
bined for 110 yards after putting
up 242 the previous week against
Arkansas, but 89 of those yards
and two touchdowns in the first
half helped build a 24-3 lead.
Meyer was happy with his de-
fense's handling of Ingram and
Richardson, especially because
the Gators improved upon the
22 missed tackles from last year's
SEC title game.
"[Alabama's running backs]
were way below what they ex-
pect," Meyer said. "Six missed
tackles is what I go through. That
was our whole thing last week,
and we tackled well."


Commit helping out in recruiting process


Waisome is a four-star CB

UF verbal commitment Nick Waisome is the No. 11 cor-
nerback prospect in the nation.


By TOM GREEN
Alligator Writer
tgreen@alligator org

Nick Walsome committed to UF in
August, but he's not done with the
recruiting process quite yet.
No, the four-star cornerback out
of Groveland South Lake High isn't
considering other offers. He 's trying
to recruit an old friend to join him at
Florida next season.
Walsome, the No. 11 cornerback
in the nation according to Rivals.
com, and Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix, the
top safety in this year's class, both
attended Lockhart Middle School in
Orlando, where the two were best
friends.
Clinton-Dix, from Orlando Dr.
Phillips High, committed in April
to play at Alabama. But that hasn't
stopped Walsome from trying to lure
him to Florida before National Sign-
ing Day on Feb. 2.
"I've been talking to him, trying to
get him on board," Walsome said af-
ter his team's 44-7 home loss to Apo-
pka Olympia High on Friday.
In that game he had three tackles
and one pass breakup in the end zone
- the only time Olympia threw the
ball in his direction.
Early in September, Clinton-Dix
said he was 95 percent committed to


the Crimson Tide, but his one-time
close friend has been in his ear since
committing to the Gators in August.
Since then, Clinton-Dix has soft-
ened his solid verbal, even if just
slightly. He told the Orlando Sentinel
last month he was only 85 percent
committed to Alabama.
"I'm still 'Bama, but the Gators are
on a run with me," Clinton-Dix told
the Sentinel at the time.
Walsome, who said he is 100 per-
cent Florida, isn't giving up on his
former schoolmate
/ just yet. When the
two were in middle
school together, they
Recruiting used to play sandlot
-:....rl: II after classes
and were close until Walsome moved
and they lost contact with each oth-
er.
The two highly-touted recruits re-
connected at tryouts for the Central
Florida All-Stars 7-on-7 team earlier
this year and were teammates on the
Southeast team that won the ESPN
RISE Gridiron Kings tournament this
summer.
Now, with their senior seasons in
full swing and college approaching,
Walsome is hoping the friends can
once again be schoolmates and re-
unite on the field.
"I'm just trying to get him over to


the Gators and be part of the family,"
Waisome said.
That family includes three-star
defensive back De'Ante I . '1" Saun-
ders, as well as four-star linebacker
Ryan Shazier and four-star quarter-
back Jeff Driskel, the nation's top
pro-style passer.
All of them are UF commits with
whom Walsome has built strong re-
lationships. He said they all talk on a
regular basis and exchange text mes-
sages to get to know each other better
before they enroll at UF.
While Clinton-Dix is the only one
Walsome is trying to recruit right
now, he said there's a chance he will
"get on a couple of other cats later,"
and try to get them to commit to UF
- a role similar to the one freshman
Trey Burton played in last year's
class.
"There ain't nowhere else to go,"
Walsome said. "The Gators is where
it's at."

Red-zone struggles a concern for Florida's offense

* GATORS COMMITTED TWO TURNOVERS IN
THE RED ZONE AGAINST ALABAMA.

By ANTHONY CHIANG
Alligator Staff Writer
achia ng@alligator org

The Gators won the yardage and time of possession
battles Saturday against the Crimson Tide, but Florida
still lost the game.
UF's struggles inside the red zone were the biggest
reason for that.
Of four opportunities inside the Alabama 20-yard line,
two resulted min held goals and two resulted min turnovers.
An interception in Alabama's end zone and a botched
handoff on Alabama's one-yard line ruined two chances
to put points on the scoreboard.
"The red-zone scoring, that's a whole different ball
game," coach Urban Meyer said. "If we don't throw
those picks and have red-zone efficiency, we are in that
[game]."
No. 14 Florida used freshman wildcat quarterback
Trey Burton near the goal line again Saturday. But instead
.,of scoring six touchdowns like he did against Kentucky
4 the week prior, Burton threw an interception in the end
. zone on a 4th-and-goal jump pass.
"I knew it was on the road, I knew points were going
, to be at a premium against that offense," Meyer said of
the play call. "We had significant momentum going there
so we wanted to score touchdowns."
The next red-zone turnover came in the third quarter
Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff when quarterback John Brantley tripped over offensive
On the first drive of the game UF freshman Trey Burton attempted a jump pass near the goal line on fourth down. But lineman Carl Johnson and fumbled the exchange with
the pass was intercepted, one of the Gators' two turnovers in the red zone. SEE NOTEBOOK, PAGE 16


UF TENNIS

Slilam wins in straight sets


By STEPHEN SHEEHAN
Alligator Writer

In the first round of qualifying, junior
Nassim Slilam did something that no UF
player had done in more than a year - post
a straight-sets 6-0, 6-0 win.
Slilam's win against No. 69 Daniel Stahl
of Notre Dame was the first of its kind since
Alexandre Lacroix defeated South Florida's
Wael Kilani on Sept. 25, 2009, in the Gator
Invitational.
Slilam's dominating victory at the ITA
All-American in Tulsa, Okla., impressed
coach Andy Jackson.
"Nassim beat the No. 69 guy in the coun-
try and beat him very 1 :.11 ' Jackson said.
It was also a successful day for sopho-
more Sekou Bangoura Jr., who battled for
three rounds against Texas Tech's Rafael
Garcia before earning a victory (6-2, 3-6,
6-4).
Jackson said Bangoura played extremely


tough in what was a long, difficult match.
Both Bangoura and Slilam will play in
round two on Tuesday, while Bangoura
will also play in doubles qualifying with
Billy Federhofer.
Bangoura was .... ,i,, scheduled to
play with Bob van Overbeek, who had to
be replaced after getting the flu.
The doubles pairs need
three wins in qualifying
to advance to the 32-team
main draw.
Even though this is the
first time Federhofer and
Bangoura will play to-
Jackson gether, Jackson said it will
only help develop chemis-
try for the spring.
Through three days of action, the
Gators' coach is pleased with his team's
performance, particularly that of freshman
Andrew Butz.

out of laziness and naivety - those
who ignore the past are not, in fact,
doomed to repeat it. But while the
first two comparisons at least hold
some merit, the third is a wishful
oversimplification.

* FIBA is considering lowering the rim for the women's game. No word on
whether they're considering doing away with double dribbling and switching to
nerf balls. ... Les Miles said LSU was trying to run two plays instead of the one
they would've gotten by spiking the ball at the end of the game against UT. I like
to think he just got confused, thought they were playing futbol and was counting
on stoppage time.

McDowell sinks birdie putt to help clinch cup for Europe


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEWPORT, Wales - Graeme McD. .11..II
capped off an unforgettable year for himself
- and for Europe.
In a Ryder Cup that came down to the
very last match Monday, McD. ...II rolled in
a 15-foot birdie putt on the 16th hole, then
closed out Hunter Mahan to give Europe the
14.5 points it needed to reclaim the precious
gold trophy.
It was the first time since 1991 that the
Ryder Cup was decided by the final singles
match, a thriller made possible by the Ameri-
cans getting big wins from their best players
and a stunning comeback by 21-year-old
rookie Rickle Fowler.
Leave it to Mc'... .11, the U.S. Open
champion, to deliver another career-defining
moment.
Under far greater pressure than he faced
at Pebble Beach, he turned back the Ameri-


can rally with a birdie putt that seemed to
take forever to reach the hole until it tumbled
into the cup and set off a ground-shaking
roar at Celtic Manor.
"Graeme McE.. -.II was put there for a
good reason - he's full of confidence, and
that showed," European captain Colin Mont-
gomerle said. "That birdie on 16 was just
quite unbelievable. Quite unbelievable."
So was the finish.
Europe, ahead by three points going into
the final round, took the early lead in eight of
the nine matches and appeared on its way to
another rout on home soil. But it all turned
so quickly.
Tiger Woods holed out from the fairway
for eagle during a seven-hole stretch that he
played in 7-under par. Steve Stricker won the
opening match, and Phil Mickelson built a
big lead to win late. Then came Fowler, the
first PGA Tour rookie to play in the Ryder
Cup, winning the last three holes with bird-

les - including putts of 15 feet on the 17th
and 18th - to earn an improbable halve
against Edoardo Molinari.
That gave the Americans 13.5 points, and
they only needed a halve in the last match
to retain the cup. Just as Fowler was being
mobbed by his teammates,
'p1 xMahan made a nervy birdie
putt on the 15th to cut Mc-
S'... 11 s lead to one up.
"The U.S. Open felt like
a back nine with my dad
back at Portrush compared
to that," McE. i ...II said. "I
McDowell was really nervous there.
Wow! It's a different feel-
ing. It's just so much pressure."
It sure didn't look that way as he blasted
a tee shot down the middle and hit his ap-
proach to 15 feet, leaving him a quick putt.
"The best putt I've hit in my life," Mc-
D. . .II said.

After a week of rain that forced the first
Monday finish in Ryder Cup history, more
showers soon followed - only these came
from bottles of champagne sprayed in every
direction.
"It's been the best week of my life," said
Rory McIlroy, who holed a five-foot par putt
on the 18th hole to earn a half-point against
Stewart Cink that turned out to be crucial.
Montgomerle is renowned for a career
missing only a major. This felt like one, may-
be even better.
"This is one of the finest moments of my
golfing - wait a minute - this is the greatest
moment of my golfing career," he said.
Europe thrives on winning the Ryder
Cup, yet this year went beyond the match-
es. McDowell won the U.S. Open, and
Martin Kaymer of Germany won the PGA
Championship, the first time two Euro-
peans have won majors in the same year
since 1999.

TYLER, from page 14

Florida lost the turnover battle
4-0, allowed the Tide good field
position early (two touchdown
drives starting in the Gators'
territory), only converted 23
percent of third downs, man-
aged just three points in four
red-zone possessions and failed
to stop Alabama's offense in-
side the Florida 20-yard line (24
points in four possessions).
Remove one of those ele-
ments, any one of them, and
the Gators still lose. If Meyer
and Co. hopped in a DeLorean
and returned to Saturday night,
they would need to fix most, if
not all, of those problems.
Fans want this loss to rival
the Ole Miss contest because,
in retrospect, few losses have
inspired a team or its follow-
ers the way that game did. Few
teams have been ignited like the
Gators were, averaging more
than 45 points in the 10 games
after their meltdown against
the Rebels.

flashed potential. Its quarter-
back had won the Heisman,

Injuries: After Saturday's crushing loss,
the Gators finally received some good news.

on the sideline with crutches the entire sec-
ond half, was diagnosed with a bone bruise
after many thought he suffered a high ankle
sprain. Meyer said he is probable for Satur-
day's game against LSU.


one of its receivers was integral
in the '06 championship run
and its defense returned eight
of its top-10 tacklers from the
season before.
An underachieving Florida
team lost to Ole Miss 31-30 be-
fore realizing its potential. This
year's Florida team lost 31-6.
Center Mike Pouncey said
Florida beat itself last weekend
and, depending on your out-
look, that's true. But can't fans
look at a lot of losses that way?
Aren't most games decided by
a few pivotal plays when one
team succeeds and the other
doesn't?
And that's giving Florida
too much credit. The Gators did
not lose because of a few costly
mistakes. They lost because of
25 points' worth of mistakes.
Good teams, even champi-
onship teams, have occasion-
ally "cost themselves" a game.
The 2008 team did. But don't
view that season, or any other
in the past five years, as a blue-
print. If the Gators did actually
beat themselves by 25 points,
have a lot to work on.
And no paved path to fol-
low.

The 2010 to 2011 Activity and Service Fee Budget for UF is almost $16 million, according to Student Government documents obtained by the Alligator. UF students are paying $12.38 per credit hour in activity and service fees, compared to last year’s fees of $10.65 per credit hour, a result of the Florida Legislature’s decision to lift a cap that prevented tuition and fees from rising more than 5 percent each year. For 2010 to 2011 only, the Higher Education Conforming Bill allows public universities in Florida to increase their fees up to 15 percent or by the amount needed to reach the state average. This year’s increased activity and service fees added $1.56 million to the UF Activity and Service Fees budget. Of these funds, $747,842 will be distributed to the Reitz Union to support additional staff to oversee student groups, and $812,155 will be distributed to RecSports to help pay for the Southwest Recreation Center expansion and for additional staff.

Twenty-one projects from 10 state universities were approved to receive part of the funding. Four projects will be based at UF, which is receiving the largest award out of the 10 universities. “At UF, we certainly have the largest research enterprise in the state,” said UF spokesman Steve Orlando. One of the UF projects aims to market a new technology that allows medical providers to track prescribed pills or capsules and make sure patients are adhering to a medication regimen.

In a phone conference Monday, Duncan reassured student reporters that the government is doing all it can to keep students in school at a reasonable price. “[A college education] has never been more important,” Duncan said. “But it’s never been more expensive.” While Duncan acknowledged problems within the educational system like keeping costs down and preparing funding and the simplifying of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid as positive signs.

The bears would easily recognize the child’s father as one of their own, as he is roughly the size of a teenage grizzly and hibernates for half the year. Bears, though, would be immediately disappointed in Shirley’s work ethic and inability to do anything remotely productive in life other than pick up ugly girls in the diaper aisle at Walmart. Portwood and Shirley are just one of the four sets of parents on “Teen Mom” who have agreed to have every detail of their depressing lives scrutinized by millions of people. In exchange for a sniff of what passes for fame in the Facebook Age, these improbable American idols reveal every torturous moment to a global television audience and provide endless digital fodder in the form of video clips and message-board material. We watched as Portwood was brought to tears by a particularly vexing computerized GED test and cringed as she screamed at her baby for being too needy and weepy. A nation held its collective breath as Shirley excruciated over the most important decision he makes on any given day — pizza or hot wings. I guess all the world’s a stage, and the men and women are merely players. But it is still important to note the above passage did not originate in a song by Drake or Kanye. It is a hallmark of modern American society when we have the ability to boil down complex issues that bleed across numerous socio-economic and cultural boundar ies into a twaddling tweet or a “Like” button. Yet the struggles of teen moms make for such compelling material precisely because they are such a per sonal and sensitive matter, and societies exist largely to shelter and hopefully cultivate stronger bonds than the ones we see strained by the cartoonish violence of a dumb, chunky girl on MTV. Et tu, Amber? Tommy Maple is an international communications graduate student. His column appears every Tuesday. Sexy StudiesTeens using condoms more oftenAmericans are having a lot of sex. And things are getting freakier and friskier. The National Survey of Sexual Health and Behavpaints one of the largest and naughtiest images of America’s collective sex life, and some of the results are, well, just keep reading. According to the study, respondents participated in a repertoire of more than 40 hide-your-eyes sex acts and positions during their most recent sexual encounter. Forty? We must be a bunch of prudes, but we got stuck naming positions at about 17. Good work, America! Happy humping! Fifteen percent of respondents also reported having a sexual history involving at least some same-sex action. Interestingly, only 7 percent of those respondents reported their sexuality as something “other than heterosexual.” And in a nod to the lovable Bill Clinton and his tagline more famous than “not inhaling,” America seems to also be having called sex. And the study makes us proud of kiddies across the nation. According to the study, 83 percent of teens reported using a condom during their most recent sexual encounter. But only 22 percent of adult males reported wrapping up. So keep passing out those free condoms, GatorWell. And remember, Gators, if you don’t use one, like the 83 per cent of teens who do, you will get pregnant, and you will die. Tommy Mapleletters@alligator.org

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2010 ALLIGATOR, 7 I am furious and cannot keep silent any longer. For those who are not aware, there has been a series of suicides over the last few weeks with a common theme: people who were being harassed for their sexuality. We all (or at least should) remember Matthew Shepard, the gay student at the University of Wyoming who was brutally beaten and left on a split-rail fence in the middle of nowhere to die. awareness and led to attempts to codify anti-hate crime legislation in the form of the Matthew Shepard Act. This was in 1998. This act wasn’t passed until 2009. Why? Because our nation does not view gay and lesbian people as human beings deserving of equality and acceptance. It’s been 12 years since Shepard’s gruesome death, and one might think progress has been made in the area of protection against hate crimes. Well, it hasn’t. The nation was shocked in February 2008 when Lawrence King, a 15-year-old middle school student, was shot in the head by a 14-year-old student while at school. He was shot because he had attempted to befriend someone who had been taught that gay people were evil, that gay people were not human. This prompted another wave of media coverage and lent enough credence to get the Matthew Shepard Act passed in 2009. Once again, the nation could sweep this issue under the rug because gay and lesbian people had gotten their protection, and we could go back to worrying about the latest season of “American Idol.” Lawrence King has faded from the collective mind of the public, and new issues occupy our attention. Yet again, the issue of anti-gay harassment raises its brutish head, in an even more shocking event. This time, an 11-year-old student hanged himself. There are people on this campus with children around that age. How would you feel, parents, if you came home and your child had killed himself or her self? How would you feel, especially, if you knew of the issue that caused this and had repeatedly notito stop this harassment? This is what happened in Massachusetts in April 2009. Carl Joseph WalkerHoover, unable to bear the load of daily torment by his classmates, took his ing up to this, pleading with it to step in and stop this harassment. All this does is say to survivors, “Your child was not worthy of protection, and your child is not wor thy of remembrance.” I’m going to list some names of children who are now dead because of harassment based on their sexual orientation. July 9, Justin Aaberg, 15, Minnesota, hanged himself after continual harassment at school. Sept. 9, Billy Lucas, 15, Indiana, hanged himself after being constantly tormented at school, with the full knowledge of the administration. Sept. 19, Seth Walsh, 13, California, hanged himself after being forced to transfer schools due to harassment over his sexuality. Sept. 22, Tyler Clementi, 18, freshman at Rutgers University, New Jersey, jumped from a bridge after his roommate broadcast him being intimate with another man over his Facebook and Twitter feed. Sept. 23, Asher Brown, 13, Texas, shot himself in the head after continual harassment at school. Sept. 29, Raymond Chase, 19, openly gay sophomore at Johnson and Wales University, Rhode Island, hanged himself in unknown circumstances in his dorm room. Did we take any impact from Matthew Shepard? From Larry King? From Carl Joseph Walker-Hoover? Did we change the casual nature of homophobic slang in our culture? Did we recognize we needed to do something about this issue? No. Now we have six more deaths on our hands. Six children dead for senseless, thoughtless reasons. Let this be a lesson to us all. Words and actions have realworld consequences. Let us not have these children lose their lives in vain. I hope you will join me in an effort to stop harassment, stop violence and let the families of these children and other children who are struggling with solution to this increasingly dangerous problem. We cannot let another child die because of our negligence. Sterling Davenport, 4LSNegligence caused gay suicidesGuest columnSterling DavenportSpeaking Out Columnist misses point about Fox NewsChris Dodson’s criticism of President Barack Obama’s campaign against Fox misses the point. MSNBC is certainly partisan, but that does not mean it has anything in common with Fox. There is a difference between being partisan and lying. On health care, Fox lied. MSNBC got it right. On the New York City mosque, Fox unabashedly employed racism and hate-mongering. MSNBC employed compassion and common sense. From a fact-checking point of view, Fox and MSNBC have nothing in common. MSNBC could probably do its message a favor and tone down the sensationalism. However, if methods of research and journalism with a sense of integrity lead an organization to support one party over another, as displayed with NPR, we should be careful not to mistake this happening for partisan hackery. I encourage anyone who disagrees to fact check Fox News and MSNBC. Dave Gallo 4CLAS Free market leads to tragic effectsWilliam Tew’s Monday letter to the editor and his suggestion that socialist governments have more frequently brain-washed their citizens than capitalist governments should be called into question. Tew should be reminded he lives in a country which, through the CIA, has actively sabotaged the economies of dozens of leftist countries around the world, surreptitiously started wars that have killed millions of people, overthrown dozens of democratically elected leaders, staged public opinion polls and planted newspaper articles mostly at the direction of the capitalist-spawned U.S. corporations that wanted to sell their products in those countries. Indeed, the free market gives fruitful results in many pursuit drives all business activity. Idan Solon UF alumnus Letters to the Editor

THE UF DEFENSE WILL FACE THE SEC’S LEADING RUSHER SATURDAY.By MIKE McCALLAlligator Staff Writermmccall@alligator.org After being what he called “a serviceable backup” for three years, Duke Lemmens has found a home in Florida’s defense. When the Gators use their run-stopping scheme, Lemmens moves from defensive end to strongside linebacker, a role that gives him more ground to cover and more responsibility as the hybrid player in UF’s heavy package. since I didn’t have my hand in the dirt,” Lemmens said. “It makes me feel like an athlete again.” He has to be. The 6-foot-3, 250-pounder is responsible for getting past the opposing tight end to stop run plays and providing support against the passing game. That requires more versatility than his main position on the end of the line, but Lemmens has made the transition smoothly. He racked up a career-high half — during Saturday’s loss at Alabama, topping the previhe played in the heavy package against Tennessee. “The two games he played, Tennessee and this one, he kind of had [career games] because he was using his athleticism to run all over the place and be a highlyenergized guy,” UF coach Urban Meyer said. “He played extremely well — played his best game.” Meyer will need the senior to replicate that performance this weekend against LSU. For the third time in four games, the Gators will face the Southeastern Conference’s leading rusher. The Tigers’ Stevan Ridley holds that distinction with 557 yards and four touchdowns in and he’s coming off a 123-yard performance against Tennessee. “Their back is a tough one,” Meyer said. “He’s tough and physical. That’s where they’re going to go with it, or we’re guessing that’s the direction they’re going to head.” Meyer and defensive coordinator Teryl Austin had the same feeling about what the Crimson Tide would try to do on offense: pound the ball with running backs Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson. The Gators countered with the heavy package, and the results were mixed. bined for 110 yards after putting up 242 the previous week against Arkansas, but 89 of those yards half helped build a 24-3 lead. Meyer was happy with his defense’s handling of Ingram and Richardson, especially because the Gators improved upon the 22 missed tackles from last year’s SEC title game. “[Alabama’s running backs] were way below what they expect,” Meyer said. “Six missed tackles is what I go through. That was our whole thing last week, and we tackled well.” TUESDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2010 ALLIGATOR, 13Harrison Diamond / Alligator StaffUF defensive end Duke Lemmens totaled a career-high eight tackles against Alabama. His role as a hybrid end/strongside linebacker has been key to the Gators’ heavy package. Lemmens becomes integral part of Gators’ run defenseBy TOM GREENAlligator Writertgreen@alligator.org Nick Waisome committed to UF in August, but he’s not done with the recruiting process quite yet. No, the four-star cornerback out of Groveland South Lake High isn’t considering other offers. He ‘s trying to recruit an old friend to join him at Florida next season. Waisome, the No. 11 cornerback in the nation according to Rivals. com, and Ha’Sean Clinton-Dix, the top safety in this year’s class, both attended Lockhart Middle School in Orlando, where the two were best friends. Clinton-Dix, from Orlando Dr. Phillips High, committed in April to play at Alabama. But that hasn’t stopped Waisome from trying to lure him to Florida before National Signing Day on Feb. 2. “I’ve been talking to him, trying to get him on board,” Waisome said after his team’s 44-7 home loss to Apopka Olympia High on Friday. In that game he had three tackles and one pass breakup in the end zone — the only time Olympia threw the ball in his direction. Early in September, Clinton-Dix said he was 95 percent committed to the Crimson Tide, but his one-time close friend has been in his ear since committing to the Gators in August. Since then, Clinton-Dix has softened his solid verbal, even if just slightly. He told the Orlando Sentinel last month he was only 85 percent committed to Alabama. “I’m still ‘Bama, but the Gators are on a run with me,” Clinton-Dix told the Sentinel at the time. Waisome, who said he is 100 per cent Florida, isn’t giving up on his former schoolmate just yet. When the two were in middle school together, they used to play sandlot football after classes and were close until Waisome moved and they lost contact with each other. The two highly-touted recruits reconnected at tryouts for the Central Florida All-Stars 7-on-7 team earlier this year and were teammates on the Southeast team that won the ESPN RISE Gridiron Kings tournament this summer. Now, with their senior seasons in full swing and college approaching, Waisome is hoping the friends can once again be schoolmates and re“I’m just trying to get him over to the Gators and be part of the family,” Waisome said. That family includes three-star defensive back De’Ante “Pop” Saunders, as well as four-star linebacker Ryan Shazier and four-star quarter back Jeff Driskel, the nation’s top pro-style passer. All of them are UF commits with whom Waisome has built strong relationships. He said they all talk on a regular basis and exchange text messages to get to know each other better before they enroll at UF. While Clinton-Dix is the only one Waisome is trying to recruit right now, he said there’s a chance he will “get on a couple of other cats later,” and try to get them to commit to UF — a role similar to the one freshman Trey Burton played in last year’s class. “There ain’t nowhere else to go,” Waisome said. “The Gators is where it’s at.”Commit helping out in recruiting process hand in the dirt.

UF’s struggles inside the red zone were the biggest reason for that. Of four opportunities inside the Alabama 20-yard line, An interception in Alabama’s end zone and a botched handoff on Alabama’s one-yard line ruined two chances to put points on the scoreboard. “The red-zone scoring, that’s a whole different ball game,” coach Urban Meyer said. “If we don’t throw [game].” No. 14 Florida used freshman wildcat quarterback Trey Burton near the goal line again Saturday. But instead of scoring six touchdowns like he did against Kentucky the week prior, Burton threw an interception in the end zone on a 4th-and-goal jump pass. “I knew it was on the road, I knew points were going to be at a premium against that offense,” Meyer said of so we wanted to score touchdowns.” lineman Carl Johnson and fumbled the exchange with Harrison Diamond / Alligator Staff SEE NOTEBOOK, P AGE 16L season, Florida’s loss last Satur day immediately drew compar isons to another moment in the Urban Meyer era.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2010 ALLIGATOR, 15 GOLFTHE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEWPORT, Wales — Graeme McDowell capped off an unforgettable year for himself — and for Europe. In a Ryder Cup that came down to the very last match Monday, McDowell rolled in a 15-foot birdie putt on the 16th hole, then closed out Hunter Mahan to give Europe the 14.5 points it needed to reclaim the precious gold trophy. match, a thriller made possible by the Americans getting big wins from their best players and a stunning comeback by 21-year-old rookie Rickie Fowler. Leave it to McDowell, the U.S. Open moment. Under far greater pressure than he faced at Pebble Beach, he turned back the American rally with a birdie putt that seemed to take forever to reach the hole until it tumbled into the cup and set off a ground-shaking roar at Celtic Manor. “Graeme McDowell was put there for a that showed,” European captain Colin Montgomerie said. “That birdie on 16 was just quite unbelievable. Quite unbelievable.” Europe, ahead by three points going into the nine matches and appeared on its way to another rout on home soil. But it all turned so quickly. Tiger Woods holed out from the fairway for eagle during a seven-hole stretch that he played in 7-under par. Steve Stricker won the opening match, and Phil Mickelson built a big lead to win late. Then came Fowler, the Cup, winning the last three holes with birdies — including putts of 15 feet on the 17th and 18th — to earn an improbable halve against Edoardo Molinari. That gave the Americans 13.5 points, and they only needed a halve in the last match to retain the cup. Just as Fowler was being mobbed by his teammates, Mahan made a nervy birdie putt on the 15th to cut McDowell’s lead to one up. “The U.S. Open felt like a back nine with my dad back at Portrush compared to that,” McDowell said. “I was really nervous there. Wow! It’s a different feeling. It’s just so much pressure.” It sure didn’t look that way as he blasted a tee shot down the middle and hit his approach to 15 feet, leaving him a quick putt. “The best putt I’ve hit in my life,” McDowell said. showers soon followed — only these came from bottles of champagne sprayed in every direction. “It’s been the best week of my life,” said on the 18th hole to earn a half-point against Stewart Cink that turned out to be crucial. Montgomerie is renowned for a career missing only a major. This felt like one, maybe even better. is the greatest Europe thrives on winning the Ryder Cup, yet this year went beyond the matches.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT BUDGET SG budget explained By CAROLYN TILLO Alligator Staff Writer They drain students' pockets, but many students don't know what they are. Activity and service fees fund services offered through Student Government, the Reitz Union and RecSports, and they generate millions of dollars. The 2010 to 2011 Activity and Service Fee Budget for UF is almost $16 million, according to Student Government documents obtained by the Alligator. UF students are paying $12.38 per credit hour in activity and service fees, compared to last year's fees of $10.65 per credit hour, a result of the Florida Legislature's decision to lift a cap that prevented tuition and fees from rising more than 5 percent each year. For 2010 to 2011 only, the Higher Education Conforming Bill allows public universities in Florida to increase their fees up to 15 percent or by the amount needed to reach the state average. This year's increased activity and service fees added $1.56 million to the UF Activity and Service Fees budget. See SG budget breakdown on pg. 3 Of these funds, $747,842 will be distributed to the Reitz Union to support additional staff to oversee student groups, and $812,155 will be distributed to RecSports to help pay for the Southwest Recreation Center expansion and for additional staff.

4, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, OCTOBER 5,2010 Campus offers flu vaccinations By KIMBERLY DEWITT Alligator Contributing Writer The Student Health Care Center kicked off its 2010 Influenza Campaign with free flu vaccinations Monday for UF students at the Reitz Union. Kelly Mitchell, registered nurse and coordinator of the campaign, said the center ordered 10,000 doses of the vaccine this year, twice as many as last year. In 2009, all 5,000 doses were used and Mitchell hopes students, faculty and staff will once again take advantage of the services. "In the past we have had shortage issues and delayed shipping problems," she said. "Rarely does everything go exactly as planned. But so far so good for now, although it's only the first day." John Hinchee, a fifth-year environmental science student, was one of the many students who received the shot Monday. "In the past we have had shortage issues and delayed shipping problems." Kelly Mitchell Registered nurse No stranger to the illness, Hinchee contracted the H1N1 virus, or swine flu, last year while studying abroad in Australia. "The fourteen-hour plane ride home from Australia was rough," he said. "I'd much rather have the flu shot this year than have to deal with that nonsense again." The vaccines are free to students but are available to employees for $25. Outreach clinics accept cash or check only. Sifting within the Siege Students sit as they attend a military ceremony while soldiers stand guard in front of the government palace in Quito, Ecuador, Monday.

By ALEXANDER KLAUSNER Alligator Writer A little more than a month after setting a new record for riders in a single day, Regional Transit System has broken its record for riders in a month and riders in a single year. The news was followed by the announcement that the company is receiving a $10.6 million grant from the Department of Transportation to build a new maintenance facility and expand the fleet by 25 buses. "It really got everybody energized over here in the office," said Chip Skinner, spokesman for RTS. During the month of the September, about 1.15 million people rode RTS buses, breaking the previous record set in 2009 by 31,042 riders. September is RTS' busiest month because of the large influx of new students on campus, according to Skinner. "It's a great benefit to have our partnership with the University of Florida," he said. "We couldn't have broken that record without the faculty, students and staff of UF choosing public transit and choosing the green option for their transportation needs." About 9.37 million people rode the bus from Oct. 1, 2009 to the same date this year, breaking the previ"Hopefully we will be able to expand on the number of routes and the service that we provide to the public." Chip Skinner Spokesman for RTS ous year's record by about 300,000 riders. Construction on the new facility could begin as soon as 2011, and Skinner estimated the facility would be completed by 2013. "With the expansion of fleets and the facility, hopefully we will be able to expand on the number of routes and the service that we provide to the public," he said. SG votes to let election violations slide VIOLATORS WERE WARNED. By KAT BEIN Alligator Staff Writer The Student Government Election Commission voted unanimously to let election code violators off with a warning Monday night. The commission considered two election complaints filed during last week's SG election. The first complaint accused Student Alliance party spokesman Yevgen Sautin and independent Sen. Neil Gundavda of distributing unregistered and unapproved fliers around campus. The fliers misrepresented the platform of the Unite Party. Sen. Alan YaStudent nuck, who ran i n d e independently this semester and filed the complaint, said the defendants had committed "obvious violations." The four-member council gave each of the accused persons a warning, citing a lack of hard evidence for a harsher punishment. The second complaint was filed because 10 independent candidates turned in their campaign finance reports late or not at all. They also received warnings. All complaints previously filed by members of the Unite Party were dropped before the meeting. Before the meeting adjourned, the committee voted to validate the results of the election. 4/) Secretary of ed. holds conference By CJ PRUNER Alligator Staff Writer While some may view the combination of slashed budgets and skyrocketing costs as the death knell for the affordable college education in America, U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan sees it as nothing more than another round of challenges for what he still considers the greatest educational system in the world. In a phone conference Monday, Duncan reassured student reporters that the government is doing all it can to keep students in school at a reasonable price. "[A college education] has never been more important" Duncan said. "But it's never been more expensive." While Duncan acknowledged problems within the educational system like keeping costs down and preparing students to finish college, he pointed to increases in federal funding and the simplifying of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid as positive signs. The conference call was sponsored by MTV and the College Board as a part of their "Get Schooled CollegeAffordability Challenge," which allows students from across the nation to propose new ideas to revamp the financial aid system. Gaston Caperton, former governor of Duncan West Virginia and current president of The College Board, said a lot of the problems facing the American educational system are due to a combination of overspending and failing to save. A solution may hinge on the federal government's ability to raise taxes, he said. He acknowledged that some Americans may not appreciate such a measure, but he said a better-educated America would outweigh the cost. "It wasn't the popular thing to do, but it was the right thing to do," he said.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2010 M ALLIGATOR, 5 Defender retires to teach lawyers in Afghanistan By MARISSA PRIETO Alligator Contributing Writer Rick Parker has spent more than a quarter of a century working for people who can't afford to hire a lawyer. Now, he's moving to Afghanistan to train young Afghan lawyers. Rick Parker, 63, has served as the Eighth Judicial Circuit public defender in Alachua County since 1984. Now, he'll train lawyers through Pacific Architects and Engineers Inc., a private company under contract with the U.S. State Department. It all started in May when he received an e-mail through the Florida Public Defenders Association from PAE Inc. with one-year job opportunities for those interested in serving as criminal defense advisers in Afghanistan. Parker had recently decided with his wife Kathy that he was not going to run for re-election in 2012. "Part of the problem of looking for a new job is that sometimes you find one before you're really ready to take it," he said. "I don't think the position will be available if I wait, so I've decided to take advantage of the unique opportunity." The exact duties and responsibilities of the job will be unknown to Parker until he is approved for flight and arrives in Kabul, Afghanistan. The company has offices in seven other provinces, and Parker could end up at any of them. The goal, Parker said, is to create a stable nation that can resist the Taliban and deny a home to al-Qaida. "If we can accomplish those things, it will make Europe and America both safer places to live," he said. Parker had a previous interest in Afghanistan and was familiar with the U.S. mission there. Parker works with a man who served two one-year contracts in Afghanistan and a woman whose husband is in Afghanistan now. Parker talked with the woman's husband about his experiences. "Looking at his pictures and getting to talk to him about it, I thought it was a very noble thing to do," Parker said. "We're going to be doing the best we can to stay away from the dangerous situations," Parker said. One risk, he Parker said, is roadside bombs. The lawyers will travel in armored vehicles. "I feel blessed to have this chance to do something that I consider to be helpful, while at the same time challenging myself to do something totally different than what I'm used to," he said. He isn't sure when he'll fly to Afghanistan, but he expects it will be before the end of the year. As for the open position of public defender, Parker said Stacy Scott, an assistant public defender in Alachua County, will be his recommendation to Gov. Charlie Crist.

6, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, OCTOBER 5,2010 Sexy Studies Teens using condoms more often A mericans are having a lot of sex. And things are getting freakier and friskier. The National Survey of Sexual Health and Behavior, which appeared in the Journal of Sexual Medicine Monday, paints one of the largest and naughtiest images of America's collective sex life, and some of the results are, well, just keep reading. America is stretching the limits of its definition of normal and lubing it up with a side of cherry-flavored kinky. According to the study, respondents participated in a repertoire of more than 40 hide-your-eyes sex acts and positions during their most recent sexual encounter. Forty? We must be a bunch of prudes, but we got stuck naming positions at about 17. Good work, America! Happy humping! Fifteen percent of respondents also reported having a sexual history involving at least some same-sex action. Interestingly, only 7 percent of those respondents reported their sexuality as something "other than heterosexual." And in a nod to the lovable Bill Clinton and his tagline more famous than "not inhaling," America seems to also be having a hard (so many puns) time defining what dirty deeds can be called sex. And the study makes us proud of kiddies across the nation. According to the study, 83 percent of teens reported using a condom during their most recent sexual encounter. But only 22 percent of adult males reported wrapping up. So keep passing out those free condoms, GatorWell. And remember, Gators, if you don't use one, like the 83 percent of teens who do, you will get pregnant, and you will die. Fare trials Sixth Amendment, Schmixth Amendment! In a New York University law school report released Monday, of the 15 states with the highest prison populations, one of those being our very own penalfail peninsula, 13 imposed some hefty charges for those seeking public defendants. In an obvious contrast to the Sixth Amendment, which states the accused shall "have the Assistance of Counsel for his [or her] defense," the finding obviously flips T. Jefferson and ole' Mr. Madison over in their graves. Although the sixth installment in the Bill of Rights doesn't explicitly say counsel should be provided free of charge, the study finds poorer criminals will, in effect, have worse representation and a higher chance of wrongful conviction as they are unable to afford some of the public defenders' rates that can reach nearly $1,300. The American Civil Liberties Union has spoken out after the study's release, saying the study labels America, where liberty and justice for all are supposedly super important, as a two-tiered system of justice where rich Americans have a greater chance of accessing fair legal representation. But then again, the National Districts Attorney Association said it's "only fair" dirt poor criminals should have to fork up the dough they don't have. This study tells us all one thing about America's values: Greed is good. Apparently so good it trumps constitutionality. Everyone deserves equal representation no matter how many Benjamins he or she can fork over. a ll te independent florida Emily Fuggetta EDITOR Paul Runnestrand Stefania Ferro MANAGING EDITORS Jared Misner OPINIONS EDITOR The Alligator encourages comments from readers Letters to the editor should not exceed 150 words (about one etter-sized page) They mustbe typed, double-spaced and must include the author's name, classification and phone number Names will be withheld if the writer shows just cause We reserve the right to edit for length, grammar, styie and iibei Send letters to ietters@aiiigatororg, bring them to 1105 W University A or send them to PO Box 14257, GainesviIle, FL 32604-2257Columns of about 450 words about original topics and editorial cartoons are also welcome Questions?

'Teen Mom' signals verybody with cable TV and a proclivity toward captivating car-wreck television has an opinion on the sorta-famous young mothers on MTV's "Teen Mom," but this week marks the first time police started a case against someone based solely on what the baby momma did on MTV. MTV giveth, and MTV taketh away. "Teen Mom" is a runaway hit television show that may or may not glamorize teen pregnancy. The only things I'm sure "Teen Mom" glamorizes are wearing sweatpants and completely ignoring your children. However, an Indiana girl named Amber Portwood is currently under investigation by police and Child Protective Services in her hometown for mercilessly beating her baby daddy, Gary Shirley, in the last episode of this season's "Teen Mom." If the police decide to rewind the DVR and watch the rest of this season, they may just take away Portwood's baby and place it in a more safe and secure location where it can have a better chance at a normal life -somewhere like an industrial mine in Mongolia or inside a den of angry bears. The bears would easily recognize the child's father as one of their own, as he is roughly the size of a teenage grizzly and hibernates for half the year. Bears, though, would be immediately disappointed in Shirley's work ethic and inability to do anything remotely productive in life other than pick up ugly girls in the diaper aisle at Walmart. Portwood and Shirley are just one of the four sets of parents on "Teen Mom" who have agreed to have every detail of their depressing lives scrutinized by millions demise of America Tommy Maple letters@alligatororg of people. In exchange for a sniff of what passes for fame in the Facebook Age, these improbable American idols reveal every torturous moment to a global television audience and provide endless digital fodder in the form of video clips and message-board material. We watched as Portwood was brought to tears by a particularly vexing computerized GED test and cringed as she screamed at her baby for being too needy and weepy. A nation held its collective breath as Shirley excruciated over the most important decision he makes on any given day -pizza or hot wings. I guess all the world's a stage, and the men and women are merely players. But it is still important to note the above passage did not originate in a song by Drake or Kanye. It is a hallmark of modern American society when we have the ability to boil down complex issues that bleed across numerous socio-economic and cultural boundaries into a twaddling tweet or a "Like" button. Yet the struggles of teen moms make for such compelling material precisely because they are such a personal and sensitive matter, and societies exist largely to shelter and hopefully cultivate stronger bonds than the ones we see strained by the cartoonish violence of a dumb, chunky girl on MTV. Et tu, Amber? Tommy Maple is an international communications graduate student. His column appears every Tuesday. The views expressed here are not necessarily those of the Alligator.

Columnist misses point about Fox News Chris Dodson's criticism of President Barack Obama's campaign against Fox misses the point. MSNBC is certainly partisan, but that does not mean it has anything in common with Fox. There is a difference between being partisan and lying. On health care, Fox lied. MSNBC got it right. On the New York City mosque, Fox unabashedly employed racism and hate-mongering. MSNBC employed compassion and common sense. From a fact-checking point of view, Fox and MSNBC have nothing in common. MSNBC could probably do its message a favor and tone down the sensationalism. However, if methods of research and journalism with a sense of integrity lead an organization to support one party over another, as displayed with NPR, we should be careful not to mistake this happening for partisan hackery. I encourage anyone who disagrees to fact check Fox News and MSNBC. Dave Gallo 4CLAS Free market leads to tragic effects William Tew's Monday letter to the editor and his suggestion that socialist governments have more frequently brain-washed their citizens than capitalist governments should be called into question. Tew should be reminded he lives in a country which, through the CIA, has actively sabotaged the economies of dozens of leftist countries around the world, surreptitiously started wars that have killed millions of people, overthrown dozens of democratically elected leaders, staged public opinion polls and planted newspaper articles mostly at the direction of the capitalist-spawned U.S. corporations that wanted to sell their products in those countries. Indeed, the free market gives fruitful results in many industries, but tragic effects occur when unfettered profit pursuit drives all business activity. Idan Solon UF alumnus Negligence caus am furious and cannot keep silent any longer. For those who are not aware, there has been a series of suicides over the last few weeks with a common theme: people who were being harassed for their sexuality. We all (or at least should) remember Matthew Shepard, the gay student at the University of Wyoming who was brutally beaten and left on a split-rail fence in the middle of nowhere to die. His horrific death prompted a wave of hate-crime awareness and led to attempts to codify anti-hate crime legislation in the form of the Matthew Shepard Act. This was in 1998. This act wasn't passed until 2009. Why? Because our nation does not view gay and lesbian people as human beings deserving of equality and acceptance. It's been 12 years since Shepard's gruesome death, and one might think progress has been made in the area of protection against hate crimes. Well, it hasn't. The nation was shocked in February 2008 when Lawrence King, a 15-year-old middle school student, was shot in the head by a 14-year-old student while at school. He was shot because he had attempted to befriend someone who had been taught that gay people were evil, that gay people were not human. This prompted another wave of media coverage and lent enough credence to get the Matthew Shepard Act passed in 2009. Once again, the nation could sweep this issue under the rug because gay and lesbian people had gotten their protection, and we could go back to worrying about the latest season of "American Idol." Lawrence King has faded from the collective mind of the public, and new issues occupy our attention. Yet again, the issue of anti-gay harassment raises its brutish head, in an even more shocking event. This time, an 11-year-old student hanged himself. There are people on this campus with children around that age. How would you feel, parents, if you came home and your child had killed himself or herself? How would you feel, especially, if you knew of the issue that caused this and had repeatedly notified your child's school, but the school did nothing to stop this harassment? This is what happened in Massachusetts in April 2009. We are seeking volunteers for a study of muscle and jaw function. Participants must be between 18 and 44 years old and in generally good health. Compensation provided. UNIVERSITY of FLORIDA TUESDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2010 E ALLIGATOR, 7 ed gay suicides Sterling Davenport Carl Joseph WalkerSpea king Out Hoover, unable to bear the load of daily torment by his classmates, took his own life. His mother notified the school weekly leading up to this, pleading with it to step in and stop this harassment. All this does is say to survivors, "Your child was not worthy of protection, and your child is not worthy of remembrance." I'm going to list some names of children who are now dead because of harassment based on their sexual orientation. July 9, Justin Aaberg, 15, Minnesota, hanged himself after continual harassment at school. Sept. 9, Billy Lucas, 15, Indiana, hanged himself after being constantly tormented at school, with the full knowledge of the administration. Sept. 19, Seth Walsh, 13, California, hanged himself after being forced to transfer schools due to harassment over his sexuality. Sept. 22, Tyler Clementi, 18, freshman at Rutgers University, New Jersey, jumped from a bridge after his roommate broadcast him being intimate with another man over his Facebook and Twitter feed. Sept. 23, Asher Brown, 13, Texas, shot himself in the head after continual harassment at school. Sept. 29, Raymond Chase, 19, openly gay sophomore at Johnson and Wales University, Rhode Island, hanged himself in unknown circumstances in his dorm room. Did we take any impact from Matthew Shepard? From Larry King? From Carl Joseph Walker-Hoover? Did we change the casual nature of homophobic slang in our culture? Did we recognize we needed to do something about this issue? No. Now we have six more deaths on our hands. Six children dead for senseless, thoughtless reasons. Let this be a lesson to us all. Words and actions have realworld consequences. Let us not have these children lose their lives in vain. I hope you will join me in an effort to stop harassment, stop violence and let the families of these children and other children who are struggling with the same issues know we are committed to finding a solution to this increasingly dangerous problem. We cannot let another child die because of our negligence. Sterling Davenport, 4LS For further information call or email: OPPERA Study (352) 273-7620 or OPPERA@dental.ufl.edu

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2010 E ALLIGATOR, 13 Lemmens becomes integral part of Gators' run defense THE UF DEFENSE WILL FACE THE SEC'S LEADING RUSHER SATURDAY. By MIKE McCALL Alligator Staff Writer mmccall I@all Iigator org After being what he called "a serviceable backup" for three years, Duke Lemmens has found a home in Florida's defense. When the Gators use their run-stopping scheme, Lemmens moves from defensive end to strongside linebacker, a role that gives him more ground to cover and more responsibility as the hybrid player in UF's heavy package. "It's definitely been a long time since I didn't have my hand in the dirt," Lemmens said. "It makes me feel like an athlete again." He has to be. The 6-foot-3, 250-pounder is responsible for getting past the opposing tight end to stop run plays and providing support against the passing game. That requires more versatility than his main position on the end of the line, but Lemmens has made the transition smoothly. He racked up a career-high eight tackles -seven in the first half -during Saturday's loss at Alabama, topping the previous high he set in the first game he played in the heavy package against Tennessee. "The two games he played, Tennessee and this one, he kind of had [career games] because he was using his athleticism to run all over the place and be a highlyenergized guy," UF coach Urban Meyer said. "He played extreme4. ly well -played his best game." Meyer will need the senior to replicate that performance this weekend against LSU. For the third time in four games, the Gators will face the Southeastern Conference's leading rusher. The Tigers' Stevan Ridley holds that distinction with 557 yards and four touchdowns in five games (5.7 yards per carry), and he's coming off a 123-yard performance against Tennessee. "Their back is a tough one," Meyer said. "He's tough and physical. That's where they're going to go with it, or we're guessing that's the direction they're gonarrsn uiamona / Anigar ia" UF defensive end Duke Lemmens totaled a career-high eight tackles against Alabama. His role as a hybrid end/strongside linebacker has been key to the Gators' heavy package. ing to head." Meyer and defensive coordinator Teryl Austin had the same feeling about what the Crimson Tide would try to do on offense: pound the ball with running backs Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson. The Gators countered with the heavy package, and the results were mixed. "It's definitely been a long time since I didn't have my hand in the dirt. It makes me feel like an athlete again." Duke Lemmens UF defensive end The Tide's backfield duo combined for 110 yards after putting up 242 the previous week against Arkansas, but 89 of those yards and two touchdowns in the first half helped build a 24-3 lead. Meyer was happy with his defense's handling of Ingram and Richardson, especially because the Gators improved upon the 22 missed tackles from last year's SEC title game. "[Alabama's running backs] were way below what they expect," Meyer said. "Six missed tackles is what I go through. That was our whole thing last week, and we tackled well." Commit helping out in recruiting process Waisome is a four-star CB By TOM GREEN Alligator Writer tgreen@alligator org Nick Waisome committed to UF in August, but he's not done with the recruiting process quite yet. No, the four-star cornerback out of Groveland South Lake High isn't considering other offers. He 's trying to recruit an old friend to join him at Florida next season. Waisome, the No. 11 cornerback in the nation according to Rivals. com, and Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix, the top safety in this year's class, both attended Lockhart Middle School in Orlando, where the two were best friends. Clinton-Dix, from Orlando Dr. Phillips High, committed in April to play at Alabama. But that hasn't stopped Waisome from trying to lure him to Florida before National Signing Day on Feb. 2. "I've been talking to him, trying to get him on board," Waisome said after his team's 44-7 home loss to Apopka Olympia High on Friday. In that game he had three tackles and one pass breakup in the end zone -the only time Olympia threw the ball in his direction. Early in September, Clinton-Dix said he was 95 percent committed to the Crimson Tide, but his one-time close friend has been in his ear since committing to the Gators in August. Since then, Clinton-Dix has softened his solid verbal, even if just slightly. He told the Orlando Sentinel last month he was only 85 percent committed to Alabama. "I'm still 'Bama, but the Gators are on a run with me," Clinton-Dix told the Sentinel at the time. Waisome, who said he is 100 percent Florida, isn't giving up on his former schoolmate just yet. When the two were in middle school together, they Recruiting used to play sandlot football after classes and were close until Waisome moved and they lost contact with each other. The two highly-touted recruits reconnected at tryouts for the Central Florida All-Stars 7-on-7 team earlier this year and were teammates on the Southeast team that won the ESPN RISE Gridiron Kings tournament this summer. Now, with their senior seasons in full swing and college approaching, Waisome is hoping the friends can once again be schoolmates and reunite on the hield. "I'm just trying to get him over to the Gators and be part of the family," Waisome said. That family includes three-star defensive back De'Ante "Pop" Saunders, as well as four-star linebacker Ryan Shazier and four-star quarterback Jeff Driskel, the nation's top pro-style passer. All of them are UF commits with whom Waisome has built strong relationships. He said they all talk on a regular basis and exchange text messages to get to know each other better before they enroll at UF While Clinton-Dix is the only one Waisome is trying to recruit right now, he said there's a chance he will "get on a couple of other cats later," and try to get them to commit to UF -a role similar to the one freshman Trey Burton played in last year's class. "There ain't nowhere else to go," Waisome said. "The Gators is where it's at." NICK WAISOME'S 2010 STATS (through five games) Defense: Tackles: 10 Tackles for loss: 1 Pass breakups: 5 Offense: Four receiving touchdowns N., Harrison Diamond / Alligator Staff UF verbal commitment Nick Waisome is the No. 11 cornerback prospect in the nation.

Sports TUESDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2010 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Red-zone struggles a concern for Florida's offense GATORS COMMITTED TWO TURNOVERS IN THE RED ZONE AGAINST ALABAMA. By ANTHONY CHIANG Alligator Staff Writer achiang@alligator org The Gators won the yardage and time of possession battles Saturday against the Crimson Tide, but Florida still lost the game. UF's struggles inside the red zone were the biggest reason for that. Of four opportunities inside the Alabama 20-yard line, two resulted in field goals and two resulted in turnovers. An interception in Alabama's end zone and a botched handoff on Alabama's one-yard line ruined two chances to put points on the scoreboard. "The red-zone scoring, that's a whole different ball game," coach Urban Meyer said. "If we don't throw those picks and have red-zone efficiency, we are in that [game]." No. 14 Florida used freshman wildcat quarterback Trey Burton near the goal line again Saturday. But instead of scoring six touchdowns like he did against Kentucky the week prior, Burton threw an interception in the end zone on a 4th-and-goal jump pass. "I knew it was on the road, I knew points were going to be at a premium against that offense," Meyer said of the play call. "We had significant momentum going there so we wanted to score touchdowns." The next red-zone turnover came in the third quarter Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff when quarterback John Brantley tripped over offensive On the first drive of the game UF freshman Trey Burton attempted a jump pass near the goal line on fourth down. But lineman Carl Johnson and fumbled the exchange with the pass was intercepted, one of the Gators' two turnovers in the red zone. SEE NOTEBOOK, PAGE 16 UF TENNIS Slilam wins in straight sets By STEPHEN SHEEHAN Alligator Writer In the first round of qualifying, junior Nassim Slilam did something that no UF player had done in more than a year -post a straight-sets 6-0, 6-0 win. Slilam's win against No. 69 Daniel Stahl of Notre Dame was the first of its kind since Alexandre Lacroix defeated South Florida's Wael Kilani on Sept. 25, 2009, in the Gator Invitational. Slilam's dominating victory at the ITA All-American in Tulsa, Okla., impressed coach Andy Jackson. "Nassim beat the No. 69 guy in the country and beat him very badly," Jackson said. It was also a successful day for sophomore Sekou Bangoura Jr., who battled for three rounds against Texas Tech's Rafael Garcia before earning a victory (6-2, 3-6, 6-4). Jackson said Bangoura played extremely tough in what was a long, difficult match. Both Bangoura and Slilam will play in round two on Tuesday, while Bangoura will also play in doubles qualifying with Billy Federhofer. Bangoura was originally scheduled to play with Bob van Overbeek, who had to be replaced after getting the flu. The doubles pairs need three wins in qualifying to advance to the 32-team Main draw. Even though this is the first time Federhofer and Bangoura will play toJackson gether, Jackson said it will only help develop chemistry for the spring. Through three days of action, the Gators' coach is pleased with his team's performance, particularly that of freshman Andrew Butz.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2010 0 ALLIGATOR, 15 McDowell sinks birdie putt to help clinch cup for Europe THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEWPORT, Wales -Graeme McDowell capped off an unforgettable year for himself -and for Europe. In a Ryder Cup that came down to the very last match Monday, McDowell rolled in a 15-foot birdie putt on the 16th hole, then closed out Hunter Mahan to give Europe the 14.5 points it needed to reclaim the precious gold trophy. It was the first time since 1991 that the Ryder Cup was decided by the final singles match, a thriller made possible by the Americans getting big wins from their best players and a stunning comeback by 21-year-old rookie Rickie Fowler. Leave it to McDowell, the U.S. Open champion, to deliver another career-defining moment. Under far greater pressure than he faced at Pebble Beach, he turned back the American rally with a birdie putt that seemed to take forever to reach the hole until it tumbled into the cup and set off a ground-shaking roar at Celtic Manor. "Graeme McDowell was put there for a good reason -he's full of confidence, and that showed," European captain Colin Montgomerie said. "That birdie on 16 was just quite unbelievable. Quite unbelievable." So was the finish. Europe, ahead by three points going into the final round, took the early lead in eight of the nine matches and appeared on its way to another rout on home soil. But it all turned so quickly. Tiger Woods holed out from the fairway for eagle during a seven-hole stretch that he played in 7-under par. Steve Stricker won the opening match, and Phil Mickelson built a big lead to win late. Then came Fowler, the first PGA Tour rookie to play in the Ryder Cup, winning the last three holes with birdies -including putts of 15 feet on the 17th and 18th -to earn an improbable halve against Edoardo Molinari. That gave the Americans 13.5 points, and they only needed a halve in the last match to retain the cup. Just as Fowler was being r9i mobbed by his teammates, Mahan made a nervy birdie putt on the 15th to cut McDowell's lead to one up. "The U.S. Open felt like a back nine with my dad back at Portrush compared to that," McDowell said. "I was really nervous there. Wow! It's a different feeling. It's just so much pressure." It sure didn't look that way as he blasted a tee shot down the middle and hit his approach to 15 feet, leaving him a quick putt. "The best putt I've hit in my life," McDowell said. After a week of rain that forced the first Monday finish in Ryder Cup history, more showers soon followed -only these came from bottles of champagne sprayed in every direction. "It's been the best week of my life," said Rory McIlroy, who holed a five-foot par putt on the 18th hole to earn a half-point against Stewart Cink that turned out to be crucial. Montgomerie is renowned for a career missing only a major. This felt like one, maybe even better. "This is one of the finest moments of my golfing -wait a minute -this is the greatest moment of my golfing career," he said. Europe thrives on winning the Ryder Cup, yet this year went beyond the matches. McDowell won the U.S. Open, and Martin Kaymer of Germany won the PGA Championship, the first time two Europeans have won majors in the same year since 1999.

16, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, OCTOBER 5,2010 Meyer looking for leaders to step up; Gillislee listed as probable NOTEBOOK, from page 14 Meyer won't know who the team's leaders are until Saturday's game against No. 12 running back Emmanuel Moody. LSU. Part of the problem was a lack of balance "Some leadership really stepped up in with the play-calling. The Gators ran the ball there," he said. "But it's easy to stand up and eight times and threw it just three times when say something. Now you have to be a grown they were inside the Tide's 20-yard line. man and back everything up. So I'm anxious Leaders need to emerge: Meyer is playto watch them." ing the waiting game. Senior center Mike Pouncey was one of After the loss against Alabama, some the players who made his voice heard after players were vocal in the locker room. But the loss, but he reiterated there isn't a clear leader on the team just yet. Two Gators off to second round of qualifying TENNIS, from page 14 Butz advanced to the final round of prequalifying before losing to Georgia Tech's Dean O'Brien on Sunday. Jackson said a player's performance in the tournament can be judged on two factors -who he beat and whether who he lost to continues to perform. "Andrew had a good tournament," Jackson said. "He beat the No. 2 guy for TCU, a top-four guy for Georgia Tech and lost to a guy who is still playing," Jackson said. With two players advancing to qualifying and good performances by the two freshmen, Jackson is excited about the rest of the week. "Andrew had a good tournament. He beat the No. 2 two guy for TCU, a top-four guy for Georgia Tech, and lost to a guy who is still playing." Andy Jackson UF tennis coach Junior Nassim Slilam became the first UF player to record a double-bagel victory in more than a year Monday. "I'm very pleased with our team and the way we're working and looking forward to continuing it," he said. "A lot of people said a lot of things," Pouncey said. "The main message was just believe in each other and we'll get through this tough loss." Following UF's loss to Auburn in 2006, Meyer said he remembers a lot of players Football screaming and yelling. After its loss to Ole Miss in 2008, he remembers a dejected group. But this time, he is still waiting for leaders to step up. TYLER, from page 14_ Flonda lost the turnover battle 4-0, allowed the Tide good field position early (two touchdown drives starting in the Gators' territory), only converted 23 percent of third downs, managed just three points in four red-zone possessions and failed to stop Alabama's offense inside the Florida 20-yard line (24 points in four possessions). Remove one of those elements, any one of them, and the Gators still lose. If Meyer and Co. hopped in a DeLorean and returned to Saturday night, they would need to fix most, if not all, of those problems. Fans want this loss to nval the Ole Miss contest because, in retrospect, few losses have inspired a team or its followers the way that game did. Few teams have been ignited like the Gators were, averaging more than 45 points in the 10 games after their meltdown against the Rebels. But that team had already flashed potential. Its quarterback had won the Heisman, "[The leaders are] to be determined," he said. "There were some good things said, but we all can walk up and say good things." Injuries: After Saturday's crushing loss, the Gators finally received some good news. Running back Mike Gillislee, who stood on the sideline with crutches the entire second half, was diagnosed with a bone bruise after many thought he suffered a high ankle sprain. Meyer said he is probable for Saturday's game against LSU. one of its receivers was integral in the '06 championship run and its defense returned eight of its top-10 tacklers from the season before. An underachieving Florida team lost to Ole Miss 31-30 before realizing its potential. This year's Flonda team lost 31-6. Center Mike Pouncey said Florida beat itself last weekend and, depending on your outlook, that's true. But can't fans look at a lot of losses that way? Aren't most games decided by a few pivotal plays when one team succeeds and the other doesn't? And that's giving Florida too much credit. The Gators did not lose because of a few costly mistakes. They lost because of 25 points' worth of mistakes. Good teams, even championship teams, have occasionally "cost themselves" a game. The 2008 team did. But don't view that season, or any other in the past five years, as a blueprint. If the Gators did actually beat themselves by 25 points, have a lot to work on. And no paved path to follow.
