Costs mount in
fight over union
* UF SPENT MORE THAN
$50K ON OUTSIDE COUNSEL.
By MEGAN SEERY
Alligator Staff Writer
UF has spent more than $50,000
fighting its faculty in a legal battle
about which university employees
can vote to unionize on campus.
UF paid $50,803.50 for 337.8 la-
bor hours in outside legal services
related to a state Public Employees
Relations Commission case be-
tween UF administrators and the
UF chapter of United Faculty of
Florida, university spokesman
Steve Orlando said. The figure
does not include UF's in-house
labor and resource costs, he said.

UF to review alcohol policies
Officials seeking curtailment
By STEPHANIE GARRY and
Alligator Staff Writers
Ladies drink free. Two-for-
one wells. Two-dollar pitchers.
UF administrators fear these
specials encourage students to
overindulge, and they're bring-
ing some outside help to stop it.
Laurie Davidson, associ-
ate director of the Center for
College Health and Safety, will
meet with administrators and
city officials on Feb. 16 to dis-
cuss ways to combat alcohol
abuse through factors such as
drink specials, bar location and
"What we've promoted is
a comprehensive approach,"
Davidson said. "Nobody be-
lieves there's a silver bullet -
the one activity that's somehow
going to change this issue."
UF President Bernie Machen
brought the topic to the fore-
front after a UF survey showed
50 percent of students surveyed
binge drink. Last week, Machen
took the first step by prohibiting
Coors Light from advertising
at an upcoming concert at the
Stephen C. O'Connell Center.
Curbing this kind of ag-
gressive marketing toward
college students is part of the
holistic approach that is gaining
popularity among researchers.
Last Fall, a Harvard University
study found 10 universities
reduced high-risk drinking by
tackling environmental factors
such as encouragement of non-
alcoholic activities, cooperation
with the host cities and expan-
sion of alcohol-free dorms.
Now university officials are
hoping Davidson can teach
them how these practices might
work at UF. But first they have
to determine the problem.
A few years ago, bars ad-
vertised on campus by putting
flyers on every seat in lecture
halls, displaying drink specials
on overheads between classes,
and layering so much material

Gainesville residents may face higher utility charges
GRU plant, diversity training decisions postponed
By BRIAN HAGEN
Gainesville citizens could pay an average of $12 more
on their water bills and $14 more on their electric bills if a
proposed fire-hydrant and streetlight fee is approved.
Commissioners Tony Domenech and Ed Braddy both
expressed a desire to research-the feasibility of the new
fees at Monday's City Commission meeting.
"I want to get off the dime and get more (information)
known to get the dialogue rolling," Domenech said.
Commissioner Chuck Chestnut countered.
"I've got no problem getting off the dime," Chestnut
said. "I want to know when it's coming back to me, be-
cause I want to spend that dime."
Along with Chestnut, Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan and
Commissioner Rick Bryant both expressed unease with
the approval that continuing to explore this fee implied.
"It sounds like we're going forward; I haven't heard
any other options," Chestnut said.
Commissioner Craig Lowe introduced an amendment
to the language that clarified the staff will look for other
options, which all commissioners accepted.
The decision to approve and enact the fee won't be
made for four or five months.
Gainesville has the lowest water rates in the state,

Hanrahan alternatives to the energy plan put forth
by GRU, such as natural gas and biomass, which har-
nesses energy from dead trees and compost.
A meeting specifically about the proposed plant will be
held next Monday.
Two presentations on impact and alternatives by pri-
vate citizens have been approved.
Missing from discussion was an item on cultural sensi-
tivity training, which was passed over without comment
from the commission's agenda.
A decision on the topic has been postponed until Feb.
Braddy sent an e-mail and spoke about his opposition
to the program on WSKY 97,3 FM's "The Bob Rose Show"
on Monday morning.
Braddy called the extra training "an irresponsible ac-
tion" in a phone interview, noting that all city employees
already go through diversity-awareness training.
The push for increased training came as a result of a
disruption of the Fifth Avenue Arts Festival by local law
enforcement in May.
Festival Executive Director Nkwanda Jah said
Gainesville Police officers acted insensitively to the festi-
val's attendees and should be made to undergo awareness

Monday night learning to defend them-

advice and defense moves.
Acting Against Rape Every Student's
Task Force and the Panhellenic Council
sponsored this final event of Sexual
Assault Awareness Month.
Amy Kennedy, director of women's
wellness for the Panhellenic Council,
stressed the importance of speaking up
about sexual assault.
"Our well-being on this campus.is
such an important issue," she said. "r
feel that there's so many issues that aren't
brought up as much as they should, and I
want to help promote those issues."
Weed, 27, became motivated to speak
at campuses after her friend was mur-
dered in 2001. She said she worried the
same thing would happen to her.
"I realized we will never be equal to
men as long as we are terrified of them,"
Weed decided she would teach wom-
en how to protect themselves to preserve
her friend's memory.
"Maybe this is my mission in life," she
said. "I'm supposed to roam around the
country teaching ass-kicking."
Weed suggested changing locks
when first moving in and urged women
to wedge a piece of wood between the
window opening and the top of a pane to
keep it from getting opened. The speech
ended with a self-defense demonstration
targeting a man's most sensitive areas
- the groin, throat, eyes, nose, stomach,
ears, fingers, feet, temples, forehead and
"There's nothing more dangerous
than a pissed-off woman," she said.

lot of people show interest in it."

Japanese WWII survivor talks internment in America
By LINDSAY TAULBEE
Students and adults gathered to hear a WWII Japanese in-
ternment survivor recount his tale in the Reitz Union Monday.
Robert Hosokawa told about 35 people in the Reitz Union of
his ordeal in camps near Seattle and in Idaho. He also spoke of
civil liberties and security as they apply to recent events.
Hosokawa had just finished college when the U.S. govern-
ment ordered Japanese-American internment.
He told how his mother cried as she burned letters from
relatives, afraid the government would find them suspicious.
"Let's not let our government forget that our
civil liberties are too dear to squander."
WWII Japanese internment camp survivor
"After seven months there, the United States government
admitted it had been a- mistake to order the mass intern-
ment," he said.
He said the findings now show the overwhelming majority
of Japanese-Americans were loyal to the United States.
"Too late," he said.
Later, the government said the prisoners could leave the
camps, but only if they could secure a job off the West Coast.
Through a friend, Hosokawa got a job at a newspaper in, "of
all places, Independence, Missouri," he said.
Later, in response to a question from the audience, he said
he did not know enough about Guantanamo Bay to compare
it to his experience. There are things people don't know and
things the government doesn't want them to know, he said.
"The problem we have to worry about is that it has been
kept so secret," he said. Months or years later, he asked, "are
they going to say,'Oh, it was all a mistake'?"
He agreed to a need for security, but said, "Let's not let
our government forget that our civil liberties are too dear to

Journalism dean will stay
By JEFF SIRMONS
One sought-after journalism administra-
tor has chosen to stay at UF where "there's
more going on" rather than seek the helm of
another top journalism school.
Terry Hynes, dean of UF's College of
Journalism and Communications, withdrew
her candidacy as a finalist for the same po-
sition at the University of North Carolina
at Chapel Hill Monday, saying she felt she
could do more for UF.
"It really was wonderful up there, and
they have ore of the finest programs in the
nation," Hynes said. "However, I feel my tal-
ents are better matched here, and that there's
more going on in this program."
Hynes took the job in 1994 and has since
helped mold the program into one of the best
in the nation, said John Sutherland, chairman
of the advertising department.
"There are a lot of good things happening
in this college, and I can see-why Dean Hynes
wants to continue with that," Sutherland
said. "UNC is great, but it's small and stable,
whereas UF is bigger and on the rise, which,
I think, fits her personality better."
UF's communications programs are
quickly improving, Sutherland said, and if
Hynes left, the momentum would be lost.
"If we lost Hynes, it might take a couple
years to get back to where we are now,"
William McKeen, chairman of the jour-
nalism department, said Hynes' positive
attitude and supportive nature have allowed
her to succeed as a dean.
"If you have an off-the-wall idea, she
won't shoot it down-instead, she'll work
with it and make something out of it,"
McKeen wasn't surprised that UNC ex-
pressed interest in Hynes.
"They'd be sitting pretty if- they had her
because she has the same academic and
professional savvy as their old dean, who
is retiring after 25 years at that position,"
S McKeen said. "She brings
extensive real-world and
academic experience to
One of Hynes' great-
est accomplishments was
bringing master lecturer
Michael Foley to UF and
Hynes helping him earn a faculty
position, she said.
"Foley brings excitement, expertise and
toughness to reporting, and he is an asset to
the,department of journalism," Hynes said.
She has also altered faculty, as about half
have been hired during her tenure as dean.
Hynes, who has experience as a news-
paper reporter and copy editor, won the
Freedom Forum medal for Journalism
Administrator of the Year in 1997.
Pulling her candidacy from the UNC
search had nothing to do with financial rea-
sons, she said, as she bowed out before her
potential salary was disclosed.
"I imagine it'd be more than $200,000, but
I have no way of knowing that," she said.
Tom James, head of the UNC search com-
mittee, declined to comment.

the chapter. As a result, no member-

Heading the fraternity's efforts is
Sigma Nu President Brian Wehle.
A founding member, and presi-
dent of Sigma Nu at UCF, Wehle
was asked to bring the group back
to UF when he transferred in the
"The organization wanted to
recolonize, and that's what we're
doing," he said.
. Wehle said Sigma Nu members
spread word of the fraternity's re-
turn by setting up tables in the Reitz
Union and asking sorority members
to tell anyone not already involved
in Greek life about the organization.
While the group has not yet re-
ceived an official charter, it is part
of the Interfraternity Council, and
members may attend IFC meetings.
"They're an associate member
which makes them a non-voting
member," IFC President John Dicks
Dicks said the IFC's Independent

Accidents should be city
priority, not consumption
Let's face it: College students drink.
They drank in the past, they drink now and they ever
will drink into the future.
Despite what President Machen and other well-meaning
officials may think, all of the posters and advertisements in
the world aren't going to convince a single person not to drink,
and increased punishments and tighter restrictions won't
make students less likely to succumb to their dark, fermented
If anything, getting arrested gives students something to
joke about with their friends the next time they get wasted.
Of course, the goal of reducing underage and binge drink-
ing is a noble one, and its success would be a victory for the
safety of everyone in Gainesville.
But a public relations campaign is not going to make it
While attempts to do the right thing are appreciated, a
line must be drawn when they are costing already-scarce UF
For instance, it is ridiculous that UF officials ordered the
band Rascal Flatts to remove all Coors Light advertising from
their upcoming Stephen C. O'Connell Center performance. If
the band were going to be tossing Silver Bullets into the crowd
like T-shirts at a baseball game, it would be understandable
that administrators would be upset. But a furor over some
propaganda on ticket stubs and fliers is just silly.
Worse, the band agreed to remove the Coors materials only
if UF waived the $12,500 O'Connell Center nightly rental fee.,
That's $12,500 less the university has, to add additional
sections of overcrowded classes, pay teacher salaries and, just
maybe, not switch to block tuition.
Though this move likely was meant to save face in light of
UF's recent commitment to remove the town's drinking prob-
lems, it's hard to see it being worth l- inmg that kind of money.
But while drinking is difficult to stop through word of
mouth, much can be done to prevent alcohol-related acci-
dents. Any funds allocated to a futile attempt to tell students
not to drink would be better spent on making Gainesville a
safer place for partiers.
Local towing companies such as Watson's Towing,
Freedom Carrier Service and Superior-Towing LLC already
are offering discounted rates to impaired students. If funds
were used to subsidize these companies,, students would be
much more likely to take advantage of the service.
Towing is an expensive option now, but rates as low as $15
or $20 per tow which should be feasible if everyone cooper-
ates would look pretty attractive compared to the possibil-
ity of an accident or DUI.
Cab companies also could be convinced to get in on the
deal, giving an option to students and residents who do not
live near Later Gator stops.
Of course, Later Gator doesn't help anyone on ,iglr- it
doesn't run. The service at least should add operating times
on Wednesday, which is a big night for many bars in town.
And though it's been stated countless times, an extension
of bar closing times by an hour or more, with last call staying
at its current time, would give bar-goers a much needed sober-
ing-up period and stop everyone from flooding the streets at
Someday, the bureaucracy Will learn the truth: They may

Sexual-assault prevention programs should focus on men
January is Sexual Assault Awareness
Month, and, as it draws to a close, one can
only hope the need to increase awareness
and prevention of rape and sexual assault will
not be forgotten until SAAM 2006. One out of
every four college women will be the victim
of rape or sexual assault. Often when people
think of rape, they envision a stranger pop-
ping out of the bushes in the dark and raping
a woman. However, statistics show 70 percent
of rape and sexual assault crimes are commit-
ted by someone the victim knows.
The current programs offered on campus
as preventative measures present rape as a
safety issue, as can be seen by the reliance
on self-defense classes and telling women
to "cover their drinks" and "not walk alone
on campus at night." While such safety tips
can be helpful, it is not the responsibility of
women to prevent our being raped. Women
shouldn't have to feel unsafe on campus or
worry about being a victim of sexual assault.
Men should stop raping us. The reality is, men
are responsible for the rape and sexual assault
of women, and there are many ways to create
awareness and prevent attacks on women.
The Campus National Organization for
Women believes that rape is the result of the
unequal power balance between women and
men. Men rape women because they can,
.and, far too often, they get away with it. An
estimated 60 percent of rapes committed by
an acquaintance go unreported, and, when the
rapist is a boyfriend or husband, the number
Adrienne Maxwell of unreported
Michelle Paggi cases is estimated
Speaking Out more than 70
percent. Based on
our own experiences and those of women we
know, the reason many women don't report
rape is because police make us feel guilty,
stupid, embarrassed and irresponsible, or they
just don't believe us.
Taking self-defense classes, covering our
drinks and looking for the blue lights isn't go-
ing to keep us from getting raped. UF needs
to place more emphasis on telling men not to
rape women, because it is men who are the
source of the problem. Prevention should be
aimed at fraternities, which play a major role
in condoning rape and sexual assault on cam-
pus. Last semester, a UF student reported she
was sexually assaulted in a fraternity house;
this is not surprising, because an estimated 10
to 30 percent of on-campus sexual assaults oc-
cur in fraternities.
Campus NOW's Rape Action Committee
has developed a survey aimed at creating
awareness and encouraging victims to report
their rape or sexual assault. We also want UF
and University Police to stop putting the bur-
den on women to avoid rape and start putting
the pressure on men to stop raping us. Join us
Tuesday in Turlington 2349 where we will be
organizing to stop rape and further the realiza-
tion of women's equality.
Adrienne Maxzoell and Michelle Paggi are vice
president and secretary of Campus NOW.
Letters to the Editor
Problem in our schools is organizational, not financial
Editor: Your editorial asserts "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."
I do not doubt their "constantly-deteriorating" state, but it is
not from lack of funds. The United States spends more per pu-
pil on education than any other country, according to "U.S. tops
in school spending, not scores, an Associated Press report by
Ben Feller. Feller states, "Among more than 25 industrialized
nations, no country spends more public and private money to
educate each student than the United States, according to an
annual review by the Paris-based Organization for Economic
Cooperation and Development."
The primary problem is at the K-12 level though there is
an abundance of folly in higher education. K-12 education is a
protected state monopoly. Monopolies are not noted for stellar
performances. Joel Klein, chancellor of New York City schools,
led the Clinton Justice Department's anti-trust case against
Microsoft. In "Unions vs. Kids," Klein applies his analytic skills
to the New York City school system. His description of the sys-
tem's dynamics apply to large systems nationwide. He states,
"No organization that has its incentives wholly misaligned can
succeed.. Take, for example, the three pillars of the teachers-
union contract: de facto life tenure, lock-step pay and seniority-
based assignments. Collectively, these provisions mean there is
no employee accountability in the system, no meritocracy and
no incentive to take risks or innovate. If the very best and very
worst teacher the one who works hardest and the one who
simply punches a clock get paid based on length-of-service,
the system will inevitably drift toward mediocrity...."
No amount of money can make such a structure perform.
Retired public school teacher
Privatization is not the answer to Social Security woes
Editor: There is no dispute that Social Security will face a se-
rious problem in the future, especially as the number of retirees
rises and the number of workers decreases. However, Bush's
proposal does not leave me feeling comfortable at night.
Under the current system, recipients get a certain percent-
age increase in the amount-of Social Security in correlation with
the percentage increase in cost-of-living. Under Bush's propos-
al, everyone would receive a smaller amount of Social Security,-
but this theoretically wouldn't be a problem because everyone
would be more than compensated by the income from private
accounts. This poses threats of bankruptcy and inability to meet
obligations, but it also raises questions such as what percent of
the Social Security tax would go into privatized accounts, who
would manage the allocation of the funds and what happens to
the current retired people who would be living on less without
any hope of starting their own personal accounts?
Bush generated this brilliant idea about how we should re-
form Social Security through privatization today but lacks any
detailed plans as to how this will be carried out or at least
any that he shares with the public. It's almost like his unfalter-
ing commitment to go to war without any plans as to how to
bring our boys home. Maybe a better way to spend time is by
implementing incremental changes for both Social Security
and Medicare, while considering alternative options. For start-
ers, level the playing field and raise funds for existing fiscal
problems by making everyone's entire income taxed by Social
Security, not just the first $90,000 of income.
Since the '30s, people have relied on the "safety net" of Social
Security to predict how life will be after retirement. Who knows
if Social Security will be around when I retire, and who knows
if my mother, who works for the government in Social Security,
will receive the benefits she's been promised her whole life? All
we're doing now is waiting for more details.

He added that SFCC received

The push to expand the
college's reach began with SFCC
President Jackson Sasser.
"When I began my presidency
at Santa Fe shortly after the trag-

SFCC international initiative to
expand and enrich programming
that enhances global peace and
understanding," Sasser said in
a recent press release detailing
Sasser and Bdnahue will be
traveling to New York April 21 to
accept the award.
The international initiative
was made possible by two grants
froin the U.S. Department of
Education totaling $304,599.
Robin Hardee was a leader
of the initiative. As an SFCC
humanities professor and co-
ordinator of the study-abroad
program, she has seen it increase
threefold since the initiative's
first programs were launched
SFCC is also using the grant
money to add international
themes to the arts and sciences
curricula, Bonahue said.
"The notion was not only to
add more classes but add compo-
nents of internationalization into
our courses," said SFCC spokes-
man Larry Keen.

No. 7 Saints not surprised with 20-0 start
By RYAN MOSS
Alligator Contributing Writer
One team gets all the attention, while the
other often plays in anonymity.
But just seven miles from the O'Connell
Center and the hype surrounding the Gators lies
Santa Fe Community College's gym, where an
unheralded basketball team has become one of
the biggest surprises in Gainesville.
The Saints are off to a 20-0 start, defeating op-
ponents by an average margin of 15 points per
Ranked No. 1 in the state and No. 7 in the na-
tion in the most recent NJCAA poll, Saints guard
Brian.Greene said that his team could play tough
against the Gators.
"I would love to [play the Gators]," Greene
said. "[UF guard] Matt Walsh is my boy and I
always talk about us matching up with them. I
really do think we can compete with them."
Could the Saints really hang with the Gators?
No one knows. But it's a fact that no opponent
has been able to top the Saints and their up-
tempo style of basketball.
Offensively, the Saints push the ball up-court
at every opportunity, while defensively they of-
ten employ a full-court, man-to-man press.
"We cause a lot of teams to turn the ball over
with our pressure,
Santa Fe which has helped
S it .1 iege us get some easy
buckets in transi-
tion," Coach Chris
However, in order to play such an up-tempo
game, Mowry must rely on his team's depth. The
Saints have 10 players that regularly see time and
all have scored in double figures in at least one
game. In addition, sophomores Sam Jozenville,
Jon Plefka and Greene, along with freshman
Torrance Walker, average in double figures.
"I feel that all 10 of our. kids that play are
Division-I level players," Mowry said.
Greene, who has committed to Florida A&M,
is one of the team's leaders on both sides of the
ball. After redshirting last season due to injury,
the third-year sophomore does it all he leads
the Saints in points, rebounds, blocks and steals,
and is third in assists.
Greene's defensive skills are so keen that
Mowry called him "the best defender I've ever
had in over 30 years of coaching."
The fast start is a big turnaround for the
Saints, who went 15-14 last year in Mowry's first
season. This year, three transfers and a good crop
of freshmen were added to the mix.
The result? Santa Fe has become one of the
best shows in town.
"Looking at our preseason, we were doing
yery well," Plefka said. "I knew we had a lot of
talent, but going 20-0 is a very hard thing to do.
It's not [shocking]. I'm not shocked at all, but it
has been a pleasant surprise."
The Saints play at home Wednesday at 8 p.m.
against Daytona Beach Community College.

Senior Boss employs three ways to befuddle batters
By TIM CASEY
If the key to a successful season
is to end the previous campaign
on a good note, expect UF senior
pitcher Tommy Boss to send plenty
of disappointed batters back to the
dugout this year.
Bosspitched the first two com-
plete games of his career in, his
final two starts last year. He threw
a four-hit shutout against UCLA
to clinch an NCAA Super Regional
berth. Against Vanderbilt in the
Southeastern Conference tourna-
ment, Boss allowed seven hits with
four strikeouts in a complete-game
Coach Pat McMahon is counting
on Boss to set the tone throughout
the season by sticking to basics.

"For Tommy to be success-

pitches over," McMahon said. "He's
got an outstanding straight change,
but he's got to be able to get a down
breaking ball in the strike zone and
make that be an effective pitch for
Boss has his eyes set on a rematch
series with Miami on Feb. 18-20. The
Hurricanes ended the last two sea-'
sons for the Gators.
"I pretty much hate Miami, to tell
Syou the truth," Boss said. "They've
ruined my life for about three years
now. Hopefully we can win one,
one of these times; before I get out
In his final five starts last season,
Boss surrendered just nine earned
runs over 41.2 innings for a 1.94 ERA

struck out 34 and allowed only six

brought that confidence from
Dunnellon High, where he was a
two-time first-team all-state Class

one-hitters and a no-hitter. In high
school, Boss posted a 35-11 record
with 457 strikeouts and 78 walks.
His fastball hits a top speed of

McMahon agrees with that as-

duce a fourth pitch to his arsenal.
"Fastball, change and curveball
are his three pitches," McMahon
said. "He and Coach [Ross] Jones
have experimented with cutting a
fastball a little bit. We'll see how that

Connor Falkenbach, a relationship
he says has benefited him on and
off the field.
"We kind of have the same

so we kind of see each other a

Gators look for win at home
Mant Marriot / Alligator sban
JF guard Matt Walsh said he doesn't feel any lingering pain in his
eft ankle, but Coach Billy Donovan may start Lee Humphrey.
By BRYAN APP
Alligator Staff Writer
They never saw it coming.
The confident appearance of the
young but cohesive Gators as they
doubled up on Florida Atlantic
and defeated Stetson by 39 seemed
unbefitting for a team that has more
quality wins on the road than at
home just past midseason.
And if someone suggested then
that they would lose three home
games by this point, they probably
would've responded with a sarcas-
tic laugh. Not anymore.
"It'd definitely surprise me,"
said junior guard Matt Walsh, re-
garding any early season prospects
of his team's current home record.
"I don't know what the reason for it
is. I can't explain it. We're riot sup-
posed to lose those games at home,
so I don't know how to put it."
Tonight at 7, the Gators (11-4,
3-1 Southeastern Conference) will
attempt to reclaim the O'Connell
Center against Georgia (7-8, 1-4
SEC) before a national audience.
In hopes of packing the stands-
for the ESPN2-televised game, ev-
eryone in attendance will receive an
orange or blue T-shirt.
While he'd certainly appreciate
the home-crowd support, Coach
Billy Donovan said they shouldn't
have exceeding expectations for
the recently reintegrated Walsh,
who surprisingly disappeared in
UF's overtime loss to Tennessee on
"I don't want people or Matt
to have the expectation that: 'OK,
Matt's back. He's our leading
scorer. Therefore, his first game
back, he's got to lead in scoring,'"
Donovan said. "He's got to help
our team in any way he can."
Donovan said Walsh, who made
an expeditious recovery from a
severe ankle sprain on Dec. 30, has
no* medical restrictions regarding
playing time. And Walsh said he
doesn't feel impaired at all by his
"I feel like I'm playing like
I always do. My ankle, in
terms of me playing, isn't
even an issue at all. It
hasn't bothered me at all. I
haven't had any pain in my
ankle in like over a week."
"I feel like I'm playing like I al-
ways do," Walsh said. "My ankle,
in terms of me playing, isn't even
an issue at all. It hasn't bothered me
at all. I haven't had any pain in my
ankle in like over a week."
And while senior forward
David Lee said Walsh has regained
his stamina and mobility, Donovan
said he's leaning toward starting
sophomore Lee Humphrey, who
started five games during his
teammate's recovery, in order to
ease Walsh's return.
Donovan expressed concern
with the possibility of Walsh par-
ticipating too much too soon and
cited that reason for using the
junior sparingly during UF's come-
back attempt against the Vols.
"I felt Matt tried to do too much
[against Tennessee]," Donovan
said. "I've never questioned his
heart, work ethic or desire. We
had been playing very well up to
then, and I felt that we needed to-
try to win without Matt because he
was putting too much pressure on
Following the team's off-week-
end, however, Donovan said Walsh
has had valuable time to regain his
stamina, and perhaps more impor-
tantly, his team has had time to be-
come re-acclimated with him.
"Our teamahad to learn to play
without Matt while he was out, and
now we're learning to play with
him," Donovan said. "I think our
team also has to understand that
with Matt back, we all have roles to
play. Everybody has to do their part
and hold up their end."
Now the Gators must do a bet-
ter job of rediscovering their team
chemistry against a probation-rid-
dled, but confident, Georgia team
that claimed its first conference win
of the season against Vanderbilt on
"Georgia, I think, has to be feel-
ing pretty good about themselves,"
Donovan said. "I think their confi-
dence level is high.
"To beat a team like Vanderbilt...
without Levi Stukes, their leading
scorer, it says a lot about their kids,
their mindset and where they are
