FSA discusses block tuition, Bright Futures
By BRIDGET CAREY
Student Government representatives from
across the state met Friday-to draw battle lines
in their fight against block tuition and other
potential student financial woes.
The Florida Student Association, the stu-
dent lobbying group for Florida's 11 public
universities, met in Boca Raton to focus on
ways of effectively crushing the block tuition
proposal, protecting the Florida Bright Futures
Scholarship and prepaid college programs and
also squash proposals encouraging students to
In addition to its financial focus, FSA will
be raising money for tsunami victims and
showcasing it to the key members of the leg-
islature Feb.16, the same day the association
will argue against the body's proposed tuition
The major target of Student Body President
Jamal Sowell's attack is fighting block tuition,
"Now, the student body already has
enough fees to pay," Sowell said.
FSA recently elected Sowell vice president.
Sowell was the sole member of the UF
Board of Trustees, the school's top governing
body, who voted against the block tuition
proposal. If the state legislature votes in favor
of block tuition, all under-
graduate public university
students will have to pay
for 15 credits regardless of
the number of credits they
Under block tuition,
students would dish out 20
Sowell percent more per semester
to attend the university.
Although UF President Bernie Machen
proposed that block tuition should only af-
fect full-time students, the state could require
block tuition to affect even part-time students
attempting nine credits.
"Not all students come from the same
background and might not have the same
privileges," Sowell said.
Block tuition supporters say it will en-
courage students to sign up for more classes
to graduate faster. FSA members argue it is
already difficult for students to sign up for
the classes they need to graduate. Instead of
block tuition helping students graduate faster,
students will feel obligated to sign up for any
class since they are paying for itanyway.
Therefore, it wouldn't help students accelerate
on the track to graduation.

Eye on the Sky
Local artist Peter Carolin records the changing light Friday afternoon at Payne's Prairie. "It makes
it exciting," Carolin said of the challenge of watching the sky and quickly translating what he sees
onto his huge canvas. Carolin's style of painting, known as plein air, was characteristic of the 19th
century French impressionist painters who worked outside to capture the essence of light and their

In the late '70s, tobacco was everywhere.
Students could buy cigarettes from an on-campus bookstore.
Faculty and staff were able to smoke in their offices.
But UF officials put a stop to smoking and its references, and
now puffs of nicotine are prohibited even outside campus build-
Alcohol isn't nearly as prevalent on campus as tobacco once
was, but UF officials are working on a university policy that
could similarly eliminate any existing alcohol presence on cam-
pus --starting with an upcoming Stephen C. O'Connell Center
UP President Bernie Machen and Ed Poppell, vice president for
Finance and Administration, gave coun-
UF try band Rascal Flatts an ultimatum
Administration drop sponsor Coors Light or play
"I don't think anyone's saying that alcohol is not accept-
able," Poppell said. "We're not talking about abstinence. We're
talking about the concern of binge drinking, drinking to get
drunk [and] operating a vehicle under the influence."
UF has sacrificed the $12,500 O'Connell Center nightly rent to
remove the Coors Light message from all concert materials and
promotions, down to the ticket stub.
Rascal Flatts agreed to do the deed without complaint, but
since they had to redo all advertisements, banners, on-stage props
and equipment, UF footed the rent bill.
"They had negotiated a nationwide sponsorship, so that's big
to eliminate it for one show," Poppell said. "They were very ac-
commodating to us; they understood how serious we were."
Though the policy is here to stay, Poppell said he doesn't
think it will hurt O'Connell Center business. Though Rascal
Flatts' contract had to be redrawn, future promoters will know
of the new policy before signing a contract.

Adopted son faces trial for murder of UF instructor
* JURY SELECTION IN THE CASE
SHOULD BEGIN TODAY.
By MEGAN V. WINSLOW
Three years to the day a UF adjunct pro-
fessor was found bludgeoned to death in
her apartment, jury selection is scheduled to
begin today in the case of her adopted son,
who has been charged with her murder.
Police say that on Jan. 24, 2002, Tavares
Eugene Williams, 21, used a baseball bat to
strike his adoptive mother, Barbara Roth,
repeatedly in the head within her Covered
Bridge Apartments residence, 1810 NW 23rd
Although police reports state that
Williams, known to his friends and family
as "T.C.," eventually confessed to the crime,
the case has been plagued with questions of
the defendant's competence.
Unlike a finding of insanity, issues of
competence relate to a defendant's ability to
understand the case against him or her and
communicate effectively with his or her at-
torney, State Attorney Bill Cervone said.
However, Williams' mental-health issues
have been addressed, Cervone said, and the
prosecution is ready to proceed.
"We are confident that we have suffi-
cient evidence for a conviction in this case,"
A Jan. 25, 2002 phone call from a con-
cerned co-worker at UF prompted Covered
Bridge management to enter Roth's resi-
dence. Her body was discovered on the
floor of the apartment with massive trauma
to her head and the side of her face. Police
also noticed Roth's car was missing.
Later in the afternoon, Williams drove
up in his mother's car, reportedly saying he
knew nothing of the incident and initially
denying any involvement.
-: When his story began to
Loc l show signs of inconsistency,
- COuI s Williams confessed, police
Roth, a former social
worker assigned to Williams' family when
he was a child, adopted Williams in 1998.
The pair moved to Gainesville, where he
attended Gainesville High School and she
pursued a doctoral degree at UF and taught
American government. Ultimately, Roth
developed the first online UF undergradu-
ate political science course.
Albert Matheny, UF's assistant dean for
Student Affairs and a professor within the
political science department, said he knew
Roth for approximately 10 years and that
his son and Williams used to play together
when they were young.
"I remember after hearing that Barb had
been killed, I said, 'Well, who's going to
watch T.C.?'" Matheny said. "So it was a
complete shocker to me that he would be
the one who would be accused of doing
The UF political science department has
created a scholarship in Roth's name for

students, and anyone interested in contrib-
uting to the fund should contact the depart-
ment at 392-0262.

to UF students, Kiwanis Club of Gainesville-

build the house.
Williams' family is the sixth to move to
Celebration Oaks since January 2004, with
four more houses under construction. Habitat

families to the community.
Directly next to the Williams' home, UF

A UF student hoping to get
back his stolen laptop comput-
er found himself on the other
end of the law early Friday
Jason Sutton, 3555 SW 20th
Ave., went downtown to :
08 Thursday night, where he
met Corey R. Church, 411.7
SW 20th Ave., and fellow UF
student Benjamin J. Bryant,
3901 SW 20th Ave. The trio later
went to Sutton's residence to
smoke marijuana, said Alachua
County Sheriff's Office spokes-
man Sgt. Steve Maynard.
After about 20 minutes,
Bryant, 19, and Church, 21,
left the residence with Sutton's
$2,300 laptop in tow.
A call to ASO dispatched
officers to Bryant's residence,
where officers saw Sutton's
computer from the window.
"The defendants said that
they were just trying to play
a joke on the victim, yet they
didn't know his name, they
didn't know who he was,"
Bryant and Church were
charged with grand theft.
Sutton faces charges of posses-
sion of drug paraphernalia.
Man arrested for after-
hour booze boost
Angered over his inabil-
ity to buy alcohol after hours,
a Gainesville man reportedly
walked off with his intended
purchase Saturday morning.
Ten minutes after the 2 a.m..
curfew for liquor purchases,
Jeremy J. Easton, of 636 NW
26th Ave., attempted to pur-
chase two bottles of Corona and
one bottle of Heineken from the
Kangaroo convenience store
at 1255 W University Ave.
However, after Melissa Marie
McCloy, a Kangaroo employee,
refused to sell it to him, Easton
left the store with the bottles of
beer in hand.
Shortly afterward, a
Gainesville Police officer inter-
rupted Easton as he was urinat-
ing in the well-lit parking lot
of Leonardo's Pizza, located
next door to the convenience
store, in full view of traffic on
University Avenue. Easton had
one of the bottles of Corona,
which was open, with him,
police reports state.
Easton then was relieved of
the rest of the stolen items and
escorted to a waiting patrol car.
Charges against him include
theft, resisting arrest without
violence and public urination.
The beer cost $10.80.

M y government teacher in high

prediction that has stuck with
me. He said whichever party won the
presidential election in 2004 would '
not win in 2008 because the country is
such an utter mess that nobody could :.

There's no denying it: America is in an ..

the Middle East and facing the largest
federal deficit in history. Some argue
President Bush needs to finish the job
he started, but the onus for this mess
lies squarely on his shoulders.
The federal deficit needs to be
reduced, and Bush's plan to cut the
deficit in half in five years has been
termed an "anemic goal," by Stephen
Moore, former president of The Club- *
for Growth a conservative group.
The federal deficit in 2004 topped
$413 billion, more than 3 percent of
our nation's gross domestic product.
Bush wants to extend and expand his
tax cuts and revise the current alter-
nate minimum tax. The Congressional

Bush must leave time for
discussion of key issues
L ove him or hate him, President Bush has built a reputa-
tion for swift and decisive action. Regardless of'personal
views concerning the merit of these actions, he has shown
he will not hesitate to use all available force and speed to ac-
complish his goals.
However, this trend is beginning to look dangerous as pre-
dictions for the term he began Thursday take shape.
Intending to usher in an era of change for the better, Bush
has proposed drastic measures to address issues in immigra-
tion and Social Security. These issues, however, are not pressing
enough to require such hasty action especially considering
effectiveness in dealing with the problems likely would be sacri-
fled for immediacy.
To be sure, Social Security must be fixed before it collapses
under its own weight in 50 years.
But the program could stand to run as it does now for de-
cades, so the government can easily afford to set aside at least a
year for research, debate and the search for a solution that will
provide the needed changes without exposing future retirees'
benefits to the uncertainty inherent in privatization.
Similarly, finding a solution to problems stemming from ille-
gal immigration is equally important and equally capable of
being postponed until further research and debate can be done.
A system of providing work visas could help regulate ac-
ceptance of immigrants, but the proposed plan would cause
further bureaucratic nightmares while having little real effect
on the influx of illegal immigrants.
As the leader of the country, Bush must be able to set aside
his wishes for seeing the end of these problems occur during his
presidency in favor of having them solved in whichever ways
will be best in the long run.
In addition to blocking the path for better solutions, the
rush to finalize responses to these issues has obscured issues in
dire need of attention. In a glaring example, perhaps the most
important issue for the future of America has been severely ne-
Unlike Social Security and illegal immigration, the U.S. edu-
cational system is in a time of crisis. Public schools and universi-
ties do not have the funds necessary to revive them from their
constantly-deteriorating state, and there is no plan currently in
motion to address this concern.
SMore than the expansion of democracy, more than an end
to terrorist threats and more than essentially anything else, the
improvement of our educational system should be the goal of
Bush's next four years in office.
Quality of education impacts every other aspect of life in the
country. Better-educated students make and spend more money,
participate more fully in the political process and otherwise are
better equipped to be active members of society. Furthermore,
America's continued flagging in education compared to other
nations casts doubts on whether it will be able to compete in
fields such as technology and science in the future.
Fixing these problems would be relatively simple if proper
funding were provided: increased salaries would lead to an in-
crease in the number of teachers and in their qualifications; ad-
ditional funding not decreased funding, as under the current
"grading" system would allow failing schools to improve;
and more money given directly to the public education system
would allow more schools to be built and existing schools to be
expanded, which would reduce the problem of overcrowding.
All of these things would produce results that would have
lasting benefits that are impossible to put a price on.
While billions of dollars are being spent on issues that seem
to be relevant today, the importance of providing for the future
is being forgotten.

Emperor Bush had gaudy coronation
don't be fooled. President Bush was not inaugu-
rated he was crowned. And Bush, for his part,
is acting like the holy Roman emperors and con-
querors of medieval times.
Those emperors were -deemed by the pope as cho-
sen by God to protect the Christian church. They were
responsible for the souls of their subjects and the souls
of the "barbarians" who lived outside the empire's ter-
ritory. Therefore, it was divine will that the emperor
should conquer as much territory as he could in order to
Likewise, Bush, to many, is the defender of moral
values. By decree, there will be no gay marriage in his
kingdom and, maybe soon, no abortion.
The Bush coronation culminated with an hour-long
church service in, tellingly, a Gothic cathedral. Evangelist
Billy Graham said he believed God orchestrated Bush's
Essentially, it seems, Bush is the American president
by divine right.
"Their next four years are hidden from us, but they
are not hidden from you," Graham said. "You know the
challenges and opportunities they will face. Give them
a clear mind, a warm heart, calmness in the midst of tur-
moil, reassurance in times of discouragement and your
That's a pretty heavy load for any leader, but Bush
took his responsibilities even further with his inaugural
address. Rather than merely bringing Christianity into
every savage land on Earth like the emperors of old, he
said "it is the policy of the United States to seek and sup-
port the growth of democratic movements and institu-
tions in every nation and culture, with the ultimate goal
of ending tyranny in our world."
So instead of spreading Christianity by the sword,
Bush is determined to spread liberty by the bomb.
Although these ends are different, Bush used religious
imagery to clarify his vision.
"Liberty does not mean independence from one an-
other," he said in his address. "Our nation relies on men
and women who look after a neighbor and surround, the

much like when the holy Roman emperors would wear
jeweled shoes and a crown of gems and gold while visi-

feet to win favor and access to the royal court, but they
did have to spend ungodly amounts of money.
Diana Olick and Rob Reynolds of CNBC reported
ChevronTexaco, ExxonMobil, Occidental Petroleum and
Southern Company paid tribute by "donating" $250,000
each. These companies hope Bush will throw them a
bone in the form of energy subsidy legislation.

Bush's plans sound promising, but his intent is uncertain
W hen George W. Bush first ran for
president, he decried "nation build-
ing" as futile. But in Thursday's
inaugural speech, he pledged to make nation
building a hallmark of his second term.
If President Bush's first four years are any
guide, presidents don't always get to choose
their priorities; some have priorities thrust
upon them. Although only time will tell where
Bush leads the country, his speech laid out
where he'd like to go. He spoke of spreading
"the fire of freedom" to the oppressed abroad,
though whether he intends to do so via an
outpouring of foreign aid or an outpouring of
bombs remains to be seen. The next headlines
involving Iran or North Korea should clue us
in, though whether he intends to forge ahead
unilaterally or with the support of our allies
Letters to the Editor
Validity of chiropractics is not the issue
Editor: Publications such as yours should
stop lumping the credibility of the chiropractic
profession in with the political and financial
issues related to the proposed addition of
a chiropractic school at FSU. Thursday's
editorial states "the scientific community, as
a whole, vehemently opposes the inclusion of
chiropractics as a legitimate healing art" with-
out clarifying who constitutes this "scientific
SMy assumption is that your information
solely has come from medical professionals
and associations who have a long history of
attempting to suppress chiropractics. In 1987;
a U.S. District Court found the American
Medical Association and its co-conspirators
guilty of trying to destroy the chiropractic pro-
fession. Further investigation into chiroprac-
tics' legitimacy revealed a body of research
conducted by The National Institutes of Health
and other organizations that demonstrate the
also remains to be seen. February's State of th6
Union address 'and meetings with European
Union leaders will shed light on his intent.
Bush said our moral values are built upon
the "varied faiths of our people." I, like Bush,
attend a Methodist church, but I would like to
see greater sensitivity toward those who don't
share our religion. However, our personal faith
can and should inform our political beliefs.
But those beliefs don't and can't apply only in
a religious sense. Hunger, illiteracy, lack of ac-
cess to medical care, irresponsive politics and
oppression lead to civil instability, which is a
national security threat to America.,
A few days before Bush's inauguration, the
United Nations unveiled a plan to slash global
poverty: If the world's richest donor countries
increase their aid to 0.5 percent of their gross
health benefits of chiropractics. Multiple stud-
ies have shown chiropractic care to be safer,
less expensive and as or more effective, than
pharmaceuticals and surgery. As a legitimate
and popular therapeutic option for millions
of people, grouping chiropractics with "Crop
Circle Simiulation" and "Bigfoot Institute"
as portrayed in the cartoon distributed by
FSU faculty and published in your paper last
week is irresponsible and unjustifiable. The
chiropractic profession has fought this kind of
ignorance since the 1800s.
Private chiropractic degree programs abide
by rigid educational standards and board
certification on both national and state levels.
Whether or not to add a chiropractic school to
a publicly funded institution such as.FSU is the
issue, and attempts to debunk an established,
standardized and proven effective profession
should not be part of the conversation.

simplifying the tax code and trimming the
bureaucracy. He could focus on cleaning up

King of late night dies at 79
* THE "TONIGHT SHOW" HOST LEFT AN
INDELIBLE MARK ON COMEDY.
By NEIL HUGHES
Johnny Carson, one of the most influential and
beloved entertainers in American history, died
Sunday morning after a long battle with emphy-
sema. He was 79.
Carson hosted NBC's "The Tonight Show" for
nearly 30 years and became a staple of American
television before retiring May 22, 1992.
While the entertainer kept out of the public eye in
his retirement, news surfaced last week that Carson
still provided "Late Show" host David Letterman
with material on an occasional basis.
Eddie Geller, president of Theatre Strike Force,
a UF improvisational comedy group, said people
loved Carson because he was a mainstay who was
exceptional at his job.
"During his time at 'The Tonight Show,' the com-
edy he did was really original and was something
that was very entertaining," Geller said.
Some felt the void left in late night television
was never filled after Carson's retirement. Even
Letterman, whose show borrows its formatting
from Carson, said all late-night successors are just
Ed McMahon, the sidekick and straight man on
"The Tonight Show," was best known for introduc-
ing Carson into people's homes nightly with a cry of
McMahon said Sunday that Carson was "like a-
brother to me."
"Our 34. years of working together, plus the 12
years since then, created a friendship which was
professional, family-like and one of respect and
great admiration," McMahon said in a statement.
"When we ended our run on 'The Tonight Show'
and my professional life continued, whenever a big
career decision needed to be made, I always got the
OK from 'The Boss."'
Josh Breit, a Theatre Strike Force member, said
Carson is deserving of the praise he gets because he
was ahead of his time.
"I don't know if anyone will surpass him because
he was the first," Breit said. "He was the pinnacle."
Nearly all of Carson's professional life was spent
in television, from his postwar start at Nebraska sta-
tions in the late 1940s to his three decades with "The
Carson chose to let "Tonight" stand as his career
zenith and his finale, withdrawing into a quiet re-
tirement that suited his private nature and refusing
involvement in other show-business projects.
In 1993, he explained his. absence
Special from the limelight.
-" :' I have an ego like anybody else,"
Carson told The Washington Post, "but
I don't need to be stoked by going before the public
all the time."
Through it all, Carson simply refused to be
wooed back onto the stage.
"I just let the work speak for itself," he told
Esquire inagazine in 2002.
While he said he feels no one will be more loved
than Carson, Breit said he thinks "Late Night" host
Conan O'Brien will be well-respected.
"I think Conan is very, very funny," Breit said. "I
think he has a good shot [to be remembered], espe-
cially since he started out so young."
Though he didn't grow up with Carson on the
air, Geller said he felt the effect Carson had on him
"His comedy influenced people who influenced
me," Geller said. "People like Conan O'Brien and

Program teaches self defense /
Women learn moves
from UPD instructor
By ELIZABETH PRANN
Twenty Gainesville women spent 12 hours in a
University Police-sponsored class this weekend learn-
ing how to defend themselves in a possible sexual
In the early morning hours of Saturday, the all-
ages group of women got a chance to socialize among
themselves over orange juice, coffee and danishes,
which created a comfortable atmosphere for everyone
to share personal experiences and goals for the class.
Sgt. Walt Hamby instructed the women follow-
ing materials provided by Rape Aggression Defense
Systems a comprehensive women-only program
consisting of realistic self-defense tactics and tech-
Hamby began his training for teaching the course
in 1999 and taught his first group of women in 2000.
He said the class has been rewarding for him as he
maintains an entertaining .prefaced lecture outlining
avoidance and prevention, but if necessary compli-
ance as well, with a mental and physical martial-arts
defense training course.
Hamby said he always walks away impressed with
the women and pleased with the results -.especially
when the class gets physical.
"I love it," Hamby said. "I love it when they hit me
... and it hurts."
The women equipped with kneepads, elbow
pads, gloves and a helmet during the physical-training
session practice defensive moves on Hamby and
his cohort, UPD officer and RAD coordinator Darren
Sanders, both of whom are dressed in full body suits.
To Hamby, the suit is an imitation Michelin Man.
"The pads do a very effective job," Hamby smiled.

It was the Gators' 17th consecutive
'ason-opening victory and third con-

RECRUITING, from page 20
"Overall, my visit was top notch, and I can't
wait to be a Florida Gator," Munroe said.
In addition to Munroe, UF added receiver
David Nelson to its growing stable of wide re-
ceivers. Nelson, a 6-foot-6, 196-pound receiver
from Texas, chose UF instead of Texas, Notre
Dame and Iowa. A trip to Ben Hill Griffin
Stadium sealed the deal for Nelson, who was
amazed at the experience of running out of the
tunnel, a must for visiting recruits, he said.
Ryan Stamper, a 6-foot-2, 210-pound line-
backer from First Coast High in Jacksonville,
also pledged his commitment to UF Sunday.
Stamper, who de-committed from Auburn,
will shore up a Gators linebacking corps that
features only four players on scholarship.
With kickers Matt Leach and Matt
Piotrowicz graduating, the Gators were able to
land Jonathan Phillips. Phillips, who was com-
mitted to Purdue, finished his career at 18-21
inside of 45 yards. More than 90 percent of his
kickoffs were not returned.
While UF landed a big haul following the
weekend, not everything went as planned.
Current freshman Brandon Daniel and recruit
Jeff Owens went on a trip to Lake Wauburg.
The two defensive tackles, weighing more than
275 pounds each, made a huge splash.
"I was in there with [Daniel] and [the ca-
noe] just tipped over," said Owens, the No. 13
defensive tackle in the nation. "Everyone was
yelling there was an alligator close to us and
we had to swim back to shore a little faster."
Owens, a Georgia commitment, will visit
FSU Jan. 28 before making his final decision.
He didn't say if the canoeing experience will
weigh into his decision.
"Coach Meyer is a great guy and he
definitely gave me a lot to think about before
I make my decision on signing day," Owens
Receiver Eric Sledge also committed to UE
Oral commitments are non-binding until a
national-letter-of-intent is signed on National
Signing Day on Feb. 2.
You think alike. You've been friends forever.

Gators defeat No. 19 Nebraska, set season highs
By DAN TREAT
It was foggy outside the O'Connell Center
on Friday night, but what transpired inside
was clear to see.
In what was easily its best performance of
the season, the No. 10 UF gymnastics team de-
feated No. 19 Nebraska 196.95 to 196.675.
"I thought that we did a tremendous job
staying focused," Coach Rhonda Faehn said.
"That was our goal coming into this meet, to
be consistent and hit our routines and correct
the mistakes of the previous two meets."
UF would only trail after the first rotation,
scoring a 49 on vault while Nebraska scored a
49.25. Vault was also the only event in which
UF did not have an individual winner.
Sophomore Samantha Lutz shared indi-
vidual titles on both bars and floor exercise.
"One of the reasons we put her in the floor
lineup is because she's such a performer,"
Faehn said. "It's obvious when she's out there
that she loves what she's doing, the judges
love it and the crowd loves it."
The floor exercise victory came in her first
appearance on the apparatus this season, -
As the last balance-beam performer, she
had to nail her routine so that UF was not
forced to count an earlier fall.
"The. last thing you want to think is 'oh
no,'" Lutz said. "When you have a mistake,
you rely on the hard work that-you put in
during practice, that you know you can do it
regardless of the situation."
.Lutz's personal-best score of 9.9 on bars
was part of UF's resurgence in a skill that
"We knew that it was going to be a
learning process. Tonight we did
an excellent job."
Gymnastics head coach
plagued the team inthe first two meets.
Friday, the Gators not only avoided having
to count a fall, but their score of 49.35 on bars
was their second highest of the night.
"We knew from the start that it was never
going to be a weakness," Faehn said. "What
happens when you almost have a brand-new
team is that you're going to have issues find-
ing out who is going to be most prepared or
"We knew that it was going to be a learning
process. Tonight we did an excellent jal."
Despite her worst all-around performance
of the season, Breanne King took the beam
crown with a personal-best score of 9.95.
"We've been working real hard on beam,"
King said. "Everyone has been more and more
consistent and I think it shows."
In just her second career all-around appear-
ance, Katie Rue finished second with a 89.35.
She was bested by. Nebraska's Richelle
Simpson, the 2003 NCAA all-around cham-
Rue's score was UF's highest of the season.
"We have the same expectations of every
athlete that we put up there regardless of
whether they're a freshman or a senior," Lutz
said. "We have confidence in them, and we
expect them to do what they're capable of

Just when it seemed the UF women's bas-
ketball team would notch another come-back
win, everything fell apart.
Making up a 19-point deficit early in the
second half, the Gators could not hang on,
losing to Mississippi 82-70.
On an afternoon when UF (12-6, 3-2
Southeastern Conference) could have won
the its 500th game, the coach with the most
wins in team history sat on the other bench.
Carol Ross spent 12 years at UF, winning
247 games for the Gators. After resigning
following the 2001-02 season, Ross joined
Mississippi (13-5,3-2 SEC) last season.
Ross recruited many of UF's current
players, but only two played for her se-
niors Tishona Gregory and Tamia Williams.
Despite this, Ross wanted to make sure the
Rebels did not worry about her past.
"I told them 'don't get caught up in the
Gator thing,'" Ross said. "Because I created
that chaos, and they didn't need to wear that
burden. I thought the\ responded well."
Womens Basketball played well until
Mississippi 82 LF mounted a 31-
UF -0 11 run that seemed
to burN its aspua-
tions of a blow' out.

Junior Sarah Lowe said the. team fought

from 19 points down and then going on to

time it's no excuse. We shouldn't have been

Despite the loss, UF is still in conference
contenhon. Peck was positive afterwards,
saying there is still time to get better.
"We'll refocus and look at things we did
well, and then things that we need to im-
prove on," Peck said. "One game is not going

That is why UF will not feel the
effects of this year's recruiting class.
Assuming the whole sophomore'
class doesn't go pro a year early,
UF will be fine. By signing a smaller
class this year, it opens up next year,
when Meyer and his staff will have
the necessary relationships to put
together a top-10 class.
Besides, UF got the player it
needed most Sunday night. Kicker
Jonathan Phillips was offered a
scholarship and accepted. You
probably thought I was joking, but
seriously, no kicker on UF's current
team had even a field goal attempt
Everyone has talked aboit how
young a team UF was the past two
seasons. Well, now the boys are be-
coming men. The Gators are grow-
ing up right before our eyes.
No needto see the probable small
numbers this year and shudder.

UF steals safety recruit from FSU
By ERIC ESTEBAN
For the second time in two
months, UF defeated Florida State
- this time it was a fierce compe-
tition for one of the nation's top
After committing to FSU ear-
lier in the recruiting season, Dorian
Munroe of Miami's Coral Reef
High visited UF this weekend and
couldn't pass up on a chance to play
for Urban Meyer and the Gators.
"I called the coaches at Florida
State, de-committed, and told them I
was going to Florida," said Munroe,
rated as the nation's No. 11 safety by
Scout.com. "The atmosphere is what
sold me, and I see us playing for a
national championship in my time
UF played host to more than 17
recruits this weekend and ended up
with five oral commitments.
Munroe was hosted by freshman
Kyle Jackson and immediately hit it
off with one of UF's top freshman
players from 2004.
"Kyle is one cool guy who played
early and told me how it is up
there," Munroe said. "Gainesville is
definitely where I want to be and
Coach Meyer is a huge reason for
my change of heart."
The addition of Munroe to UF's
list of commitments gives the Gators
the No. 11 safety and the No. 3 de-
fensive back Avery Atkins, who will
make his official visit to Gainesville

With. Mike Locksley's departure and UF's
2005 recruiting season in jeopardy, Coach Urban
Meyer had fo act quickly.
A little more than a week after Locksley took
the offensive coordinator job at Illinois with
Ron Zook, Meyei announced the hiring of Stan
Drayton as running backs coach on Friday.
Drayton, who comes to Gainesville after serv-
ing in the same capacity at Mississippi State in
2004, has spent nine years working with running
backs at the collegiate level.
Drayton has also coached in the NFL for three
"We were looking for a coach who had
extensive experience coaching running backs
with a proven track record,"
Meyer said. "We were looking
for an outstanding recruiter,
a great teacher of the game
and someone who understood
the philosophy of our football
"Coach Drayton is all of
Drayton that and more. We are excited
to have him and his wife join
our Gator family."
Drayton, 33, went to MSU from the Green
Bay Packers, where he spent the previous three
seasons as the organization's offensive quality
control and assistant special teams coach.
Before coaching on the pro level, Drayton
was the running backs coach for five months
at Bowling Green (Ohio) State University. He
earlier served as an assistant coach at Villanova
from 1996-2000, including its Division I-AA
national championship season in 1997. In 1999,
Drayton was nominated for the American
Football Coaches' Association Assistant Coach of
the Year Award.
Drayton has been instrumental in the devel-
opment of standout running backs, including
two-time All-American and Super Bowl-bound
Philadelphia Eagle Brian Westbrook. As a
sophomore at Villanova in 1998, Westbrook
became the first player on any collegiate level
to record more than 1,000 yards rushing and
1,000 receiving yards in the same season. This
past season, Drayton tutored Mississippi State's
"Jerious Norwood, who rushed for 1,050 yards
on 195 carries to finish third in the Southeastern
Conference with 95.5 yards per game.
"I'm proud to be a part of the Florida foot-
ball program," Drayton said. "I was fortunate
to be around Coach Meyer when he began his
head coaching career at Bowling Green, and I'm
thrilled to be reunited with him in Gainesville."
UF men's golf coach Buddy Alexander
was selected to coach the U.S. team in
the 2005 Palmer Cup by the Golf Coaches
Association of America. The Palmer Cup is
considered the Ryder Cup of college.
