Chiropractic



school denied


By JAMES VANLANDINGHAM
Alligator Staff Writer
Jvanl@alligator.org

The plan to build a chiropractic
school at Florida State University
was pronounced dead Thursday at
12:40 p.m. in the Reitz Union Grand
Ballroom.
That's when the Board of
Governors, which oversees Florida's
11 public universities, voted 10 to
3 to deny its approval, breaking
the back of an effort to build what
would have been the first chiro-
practic school at an American public
university.
After hearing arguments, most
of the board members said its con-
struction would not be a valuable
use of scarce state resources.
Board Chairwoman Carolyn
Roberts, an Ocala realtor, said build-
ing the school could jeapardize
FSU's entry into the Association of
American Universities.

SG to fund

hotel, tickets
By JEFF SIRMONS

UF's Reitz Union Hotel needs
to get with the times, officials
say, and Student Government has
stepped in to help.
To combat the "vintage" look
of the hotel, the SG budget com-
mittee approved a $500,000 loan
to the union. The money will
be used to renovate bathrooms
designed almost 40 years ago, as
well as replace worn-out curtains,
carpets and bedspreads from the
'80s.
"Currently, the hotel is old and

developer, said FSU failed to present
clear and convincing evidence that
the school is needed.
And Steven Uhlfelder, a
Tallahassee lobbyist, said the plan
has been a political power play with-
out real merit for either FSU or the
State University
System. He add-
ed that the Board
of Governors
should move on
to important sub-
jects such as the
inadequacy of

Roberts funding.
In his last budget recommenda-
tion, Gov. Jeb Bush funded only a
quarter of the amount the Board of
Governors said is necessary to keep
pace with new student enrollment.
One of the three dissenting votes

SG budget committee chairman.
"It's at a Motel 6 quality when it
should be at a Hyatt quality."
The money will come out of SG
reserves and will be paid back in
five years.
"This investment will actually
clear up more money for the stu-
dents," said Dave Kratzer, Reitz
Union director. "We do these
renovations, increase the price
by $15, SG would be able to make
a return on the investment and
also, the Activity & Service Fee on
student tuition would go down
because of increased revenue."
The remodeling would take
four to eight weeks, and the goal
is to finish by football season.

Chris Bucciarelli and Jeremy Martin of the Interfraternity Council discuss volunteer options
with Kay Lenard of the Red Cross on Thursday afternoon. IFC, along with the Panhellenic
Council, presented a check to the organization from money raised for tsunami relief.

Greek councils donate relief


By DAVID COHEN
Alligator Writer
dcohen@alligator.org

UF's generosity soon will be putting food in
starving mouths, covering cold bodies and warm-
ing the hearts of thousands of strangers in Asia.
The Interfratemity and Panhellenic councils
formally presented the North Central Florida
Chapter of the Red Cross with a $7,500 check for
tsunami disaster relief Thursday at 4 p.m.
The contribution is a result of the efforts of the
Greek community as well as the generosity of the
entire UF student body.
"It really exceeded our expectations," said
Chris Ferrante, service director for IFC. "The stu-
dent body really showed out in big support. We
were only expecting a couple thousand dollars
at best. It took so long to even count the money;
even the pocket change and everything helped.
We were pretty much overwhelmed."
Ferrante noted that IFC did not get the check
to the Red Cross sooner because the Red Cross
had been "so busy" accepting donations.


* Months of preparation
culminated in a victory last
week for students from the
UF Levin College of Law
at the annual Florida Bar
Mock Trial team competi-
tion held in Miami. See
story, pg 6.


Red Cross International is bringing $1.2 billion
in relief efforts to South Asia.
"At first, the Red Cross is concerned
with meeting their immediate needs,
and after that the Red Cross will step
in on the long-term recovery pro-
cess."

"I am overwhelmed. I am more than im-
pressed; I am overwhelmed," said Margaret

Cross, in regard to the large donation.

Machen plans to


double research


* UF PRESIDENT URGES
TECHNOLOGY AND BUSI-
NESS DEVELOPMENT.

By BRIAN HAGEN
Alligator Writer
bhagen@alligator.org

It took $200 to silence
about 500 attendees the first
time.
Mark Walker of Mercantile
Bank, corporate sponsor of
the annual meeting dinner of
the Gainesville Area Chamber
of Commerce, announced
that one of the room's 500
travel cups held a winning
ticket for that amount. The
noisy crowd went silent as
hands rushed to grab for the
travel cups at every setting.
The evening's second and
third silences came after din-
ner courtesy of UF President
Bernie Machen and Katherine
Pierce, who assumed her po-
sition Thursday evening as
the 2005 chair of the Chamber
of Commerce.
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan,
city and county commis-
sioners, and hundreds-of
Gainesville business repre-
sentatives listened to them
both closely.
Machen also announced
his aspiration to double the
size of UF's research ambi-
tions, continuing to pursue
his vision of elevating UF
among the top ten universi-
ties in the nation.
"I want to recruit scientists
and scholars," Machen said.
However, while expand-
ing the research side of UF,
Machen plans to maintain
current enrollment levels.
"Forty-nine thousand is
plenty big," he said.
The proposed growth for
UF means the need for a new
infrastructure, new buildings
and a solution to Gainesville's
traffic, problem. ;


"The University of Florida
must be the stimulant for
economic development,"
Machen said.
UF-spawned technologies
have created six companies
that have brought half a bil-
lion dollars and 2,000 jobs to
Florida, he said. He intends
to keep these businesses in
Gainesville to keep jobs and
money within the commu-
nity.
"The next decade is going
to be of great excitement to
us," Machen said.
Pierce's new position was
announced by her predeces-
sor, 2004 Chamber Chairman
Charles "Chic" Holden, who
called her
"my right
hand" and
a constant
source for
good ad-
vice.
Machen Pierce
introduced
her theme for the year,
"Business is Good," empha-
sizing the business commu-
nity must increase its partici-
pation in local government.
"They are not mind-read-
ers," Pierce said of the city
and county officials. "Show
up at meetings. At least send
an e-mail. You must let them
know what you want."
"Not speaking up is like
not voting," Pierce added.
The Chamber succeeded
in its goal of increasing di-
versity in 2004. Over the past
year, the Chamber's newly
created Diversity Task Force
brought to its board three
new African-American mem-
bers, two Hispanics and two
women, Holden said.
It also expanded member-
ship with 198 new members,
bringing the group's net
increase in members to 100,
Holden added.

After striking down a pet project of last year's legis-
lative leaders, the Board of Governors defied the state-
house again by voting not to fund a $5.4 million recom-
mended construction project for a community college.
After the vote against a chiropractic program at FSU,
Board member Steve Uhlfelder questioned funding St.
Petersburg-College, a community college the board
doesn't govern.
"Why can't we turn them down on this?" Uhlfelder
asked his colleagues. "It's not our responsibility to look
after St. Pete College."
Board Chairwoman Carolyn Roberts questioned if
refusing legislative wishes was wise at a time when the
State University System is short on cash, but the board
voted against the funding by one vote.
The board voted to delegate distribution of the $5.4
million to the Department of Education.


Should UF receive some of that money, it would
help fund a new life sciences building at the university,
Interim Provost Joe Clover said.
UF got more than $5 million in additional funds
after Public Education Capital Outlay revenue projec-
tions increased by $46.9 million. PECO funds Florida
public university construction
UF projects.
Administration UF now expects a total of
$64.2 million for maintenance,
an emergency power system
and two new interdisciplinary research facilities over
the next three years.
"This is growing research," said Ed Poppell, UF vice
president for finance and administration. "That is our
focus."
If the Florida Legislature includes the construction
funding recommended by the Board of Governors in its
2005-06 state budget, UF should receive $40.6 million
around July 1, he said.

Author tells Greeks of hazing dangers


Togetherness, positivity encouraged


By IVETTE MENDEZ
Alligator Contributing Writer


Ricky L. Jones, author of the book
"Black Haze," addressed Greek
students on the dangers of hazing
Thursday night, stressing the im-
portance of unity within their com-
munity.
The event, sponsored by the
Institute of Black Culture and the UF
chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi fraterni-
ty, drew a crowd of about 100 to the
Reitz Union Grand Ballroom.
"Black Greeks and white Greeks
in particular need to come together
and do more things together," Jones
said.
c: J ', ..


Jones, a member of Kappa Alpha
Psi, said he hopes to put a stop to
the deaths caused by hazing. Hazing
was present even among his frater-
nity's chapter
at Morehouse
~' College.
"What is re-
ally important

life," he said.
In order
Black History to lighten the
Month mood of the
room, Jones
brought some
comic relief to the issue of hazing.
At one point toward the end of his


speech, the room.broke into laughter
as he quoted Dave Chappelle and Lil
Jon.
-Instead of focusing on blaming,
Jones used his position to motivate
the audience to pay more attention to
academics. Greeks need to start suc-
ceeding more in school and worry
less about partying, Jones said.
Kappa Sigma fraternity pledge
Peter Kasser said, "Of course hazing
is a major issue; I'm glad he recog-
nizes it. He put a historical perspec-
tive on it."
Jones said he wants the Greek
community to help students live suc-
cessfully.
"Either the fraternity or sorority
makes you, or you help to make the
fraternity or sorority," he said.

STUDENT LIFE

UF law students dominate mock trial competition


By LAURA JONES
-Alligator Contributirg Writer

Months of preparation culminated in a vic-
tory last week for students from the UF Levin
College of Law at the annual Florida Bar Mock
Trial team competition held in Miami.
Nine schools from around the state, in-
cluding the University of Miami, Stetson
University, Florida Coastal University and
Barry University, brought two teams to partic-.
ipate in the competition, held Jan. 19 and 20.
The competition consisted of four full tri-
als, with each team taking turns to represent
the plaintiff and the defendant. Two federal-
district judges presided over the trial, playing
referee for the competition, said Chris King,
one of the team captains.


"They ran it just like they would run their
courtroom on a typical day," King said.
The team with the most points after each
trial would move on to the next trial.
"It's just like the NCAA tournament. If
you win you move on, and if you don't you're
out," King said.
After winning in the semifinal rounds, the
two UF teams had to face off in the finals.
"We were just all really excited and thrilled
to be able to do that," King said. "As far as we
know, it hadn't happened before, so we were
excited."
The team of King, Paul Vicary, Gregory
Edwards and Najah Gibson won first place.
King, a third-year law student, received best
advocate honors. Other UF team members
included Loreal Belfon, Claudel Pressa, Chris


"The success of this team is re-
ally a testament to what happens
when talented students are willing
to work hard towards achieving a
single goal."
Nick Zissimopulos
Law Office of Rush & Glassman attorney

Chestnut and Natalie Hanan.
Stacey Steinberg, an assistant state attorney
in Alachua County, and Nick Zissimopulos,
an attorney with the Law Office of Rush &
Glassman in Gainesville coached the teams.
"In order to prepare for this tournament,
the students began practicing in October of


last year," Zissimopulos said. "With an av-
erage of four practices per week, as well as
individual work, each student was required
to devote hundreds of hours of preparation
outside of their regular school schedules."
The team ended its trip with a celebration at
a restaurant in Coconut Grove and left Miami
with more experience under their belts.
King said this victory was especially sweet
because last year the UF team was out of the
running shortly after the competition began.
Zissimopulos said that most importantly,
students learned the value and importance of
a strong work ethic.
"The success of this team is really a testa-
ment to what happens when talented students
are willing to work hard toward achieving a
single goal," Zissimopulos said.

Financial Accounting class getsacademic makeover



Financial Accounting class gets-academic makeover


By JULIE ANNE MCADAMS
Alligator Contributing Writer


Financial Accounting at UF has re-
ceived a facelift in an attempt to make it
more relevant and attractive to students.
"Students think accounting is boring
and it's a pain to come to class," Financial
Accounting assistant professor Haijin Lin,
said. "We are trying to change that."
In the past, three multiple-choice exams
made up most of the class grades. Students
in Financial Accounting now have home-
work and quizzes to help balance their
scores.
An optional lab session also meets


every other Friday, where teaching assis-
tants answer questions and give practice
quizzes.
Lin agrees with the revisions to the
course, saying the class was too mechani-
cal before. Now she tries to relate her
teaching to the real world of business.
"If you just mechanically' apply the
rules, you miss out," Lin said.
Sophomore finance major Ashley Aplin
said Financial Accounting is the weed-out
class. She admits she heard the course was
difficult from many people.
"I was really scared to take it at first,"
Aplin said. "Everyone made it seem like it
was impossible to do well or even pass."


Lin said she believes this kind of input
from friends can hurt the confidence of a
potential Financial Accounting students
before they even register for the class.
"We worry about the misperceptions
of this course," she said. "We are trying to
conquer this."
Aplin said she was sur-
On prised at her positive reaction
:";':?' -"' to the course.
"This class has made me
realize that this is what I want to do. I
like it," she said. "I think Professor Lin is
covering the material really well in lecture.
My teaching assistant is great too. He fills
in the blanks that aren't explained well


enough in lecture."
According to Lin, the class was de-
signed to be difficult but not impossible.
Some students simply do not take the
course seriously.
Lin said she believes students- who
take the course seriously are the ones who
come to class and will do well in the end.
"Financial Accounting cannot be
learned overnight," Lin said. "It takes a
good institution of knowledge."
Lin said she does not think the new rou-
tine demands too much from students.
"They can take what we give them,"
Lin said. "They just need to work hard
from the beginning."

6, ALLIGATOR N FRIDAY, JANUARY 28, 2005


The Department of Darts & Laurels had planned a slate of
pressing, important issues for today.
This space was to be full of national intrigue, civil rights
battles and a healthy portion of good old controversy.
But then, Floridians collectively decided to be morons yet
again.
This week, we're going to bring you the best (or worst) of
the ridiculous things denizens of the Sunshine State chose to do,
from the silly to the just plain idiotic.
Who wants to hear real news anyway? That's what "The
Daily Show" is for.
So put on a dissaproving look, raise your eyebrow and get
ready to point your finger as we chuckle scornfully into this
week's edition of...



Darts & Laurels

Because tales of actual school violence just aren't good
enough for us anymore, we give a there's-a-way-to-effec-
tively-use-law-enforcement-resources DART to Ocala Police
for arresting two special education students on second-degree
felony charges, accusing them of drawing pictures "for the
sole purpose of intimidating and scaring" another student.
The boys, ages 9 and 10, made drawings in pencil and red
crayon depicting a 10-year-old classmate dying in various
ways. If the students are charged as adults which no longer
seems like such an impossible idea they could face up to 15
years in prison.
In similar news, FBI investigators are still perplexed over
a case in which a kindergarten student has fled the country to
escape prosecution. The student, who was the subject of a na-
tionwide manhunt, faces a possible life sentence if convicted
of calling his teacher a "doodyhead."
As the last remnants of hanging chads and misplaced
absentee ballots were finally slipping out of the nation's col-
lective consciousness, we toss a yes-we'd-love-to-hear-more-
about-the-election-four-years-ago DART to Theresa LePore,
former Palm Beach County election supervisor, for announc-
ing she is writing a book on her exploits as butterfly-ballot
champion.
LePore, who has been milking the subject for her own gain
a la Monica Lewinsky since 2000, expects the book to be a big
success though she said she can't promise whether pre-or-
dering customers will receive their first choice of blue or red
covers.
While we close our eyes and try extra hard to pretend
our state hasn't transformed into one giant episode of "The
Simpsons," we hurl a yes-the-voters-really-meant-it-this-time
DART to some Florida legislators for continuing to think the
high-speed rail is a good idea.
The state lawmakers who are waiting to see if the federal
transportation budget includes funding for the rail evidently
missed the last meeting, in which the huddled masses realized
Epcot's Futureland section is not the best model for Florida's
development.
But finally, just when we thought IQs in "America's wang"
(thanks, Homer) had dropped to their lowest, one group
actually decided to take a step'forward on the evolutionary
ladder.
Because we love to say "We told you so," we gratiously
present an at-least-somebody-in-this-crazy-place-remem-
bered-their-helmet LAUREL to the Board of Governors for
voting to kill FSU's proposed chiropractic school.
Regardless of the possible merits of chiropractics as a prac-
tice, the proposal scoffed at the idea of faculty, student and
university approval and instead came into being when senator
and chiropractor Jim King said "Make it so."
Didn't someone tell him we have standards to uphold
here?

TV becoming a repetitLve wasteland



TV becoming a repetitive wasteland


hanks to the insanely cold weather, I've recently
stayed indoors a lot more. This has led to a horrify-
ing discovery about the state of television: it's aw-
ful. TV, for the most part, has become unwatchable.
The first thing I noticed was even the commercials have
hit a new low. Not counting the various local news ads
that warn me, "Something could be killing you right now,
tune in at 11 to find out what it is," there are only about
five different commercials that run in Gainesville. Not
only are they all on constantly, but all of them are terrible.
I have seen that horrid InventTech commercial about
18 million times and unintentionally have it memorized:
"Everybody laughed at my pot that cooked and drained
pasta; If I had the patent, I'd be rich." It won't be long before I
start having nightmares about it: "Snap your fingers, turn on
the lights that was my idea, but now Satan will eat your
soul."
Worse than the commercials are the actual TV shows
themselves. Not only are they bad, but I think I can place al-
most every show on TV right now in one of four categories.
First there are the New Age detective shows in which
most of.the program is spent in a lab where generic, under-
developed characters make smarmy remarks about evidence
that will help them find who's been killing all the neighbor-
hood cats. CBS alone has something like 14,000 shows in this
genre, and they're all on Thursday. "CSI," "CSI: Miami,"
"CSI: New York," "NCIS," "Cold Case," "Without a Trace,"
"Numb3rs," and the brand new "CSI: Sri Lanka" come on,
tell me you wouldn't watch all fit the bill.
Then there are the homogenous sitcoms starring
crappy, usually fat, white comedians, who always have a
ridiculously hot wife. The prototype for this kind of show
has to be "The King of Queens," also on CBS. You're telling
me Kevin James could ever hook up with Leah Remini?


Really? Maybe I could believe it,
maybe, if his character wasn't so
boorish and obnoxious.
SAnother unfortunate trend is
the list show perpetuated by VH1.
These programs take any random
Andrew Meyer topic (i.e. "The 100 Most Outrageous
Uncommon Sense Moments ofJanuary 4th") and getD-
letters@alligator.org list celebrities to comment on them.
Actually, they don't even need a list
anymore now that they've created the monstrosity known
as "Best Week Ever." Now, we can get instant commentary
"I Love the 80s"-style from Michael Ian Black on things that
happened the previous week. Watching this would be the
fastest way to kill an hour and a bunch of brain cells, were it
not for the reality TV craze.
Ah yes, reality TV. The bane of the boob tube, reality
TV is what has truly ruined television perhaps forever.
I don't know who deserves more of the blame for this-
- MTV, CBS or FOX. Everyone knows MTV's "The Real
World" essentially birthed reality TV, but the astounding
success of CBS's "Survivor," which I admittedly watched,
is what sparked reality TV's expansion. Personally, I hold
FOX responsible. Why? Because they took reality TV and
made certain that it would appeal to the lowest com-
mon denominator: "Who Wants to Marry a Millionaire?"
"Temptation Island," "American Idol," "My Big Fat
Obnoxious Fiancee," the list goes on and on. FOX
guaranteed you won't be able to turn on any of the major
networks without wanting to kill their executives.
Isay forget TV. Who needs it?
"The Sopranos" is on DVD now anyway.
Andrew Meyer is a journalism freshman. His column ap-
pears on Friday.

Sexual assault victim responds to letter
Editor: As a former victim of sexual as-
sault, I must say David Tarabocchia's letter
was disturbing to read on Thursday. It amazes
me how ignorant some people can be about
rape, sexual assault, the causes of it and who
is responsible. These crimes will never cease to
take place if people continue to make excuses.
Rape and sexual assault are crimes and
should never be mistaken for anything else. If
a womah wears an outfit that is provocative,
it doesn't give a man the right to rape her. She
has a right to wear whatever she feels is ap-
propriate and, if a man cannot control himself,
then he needs to seek therapy not justify it
by raping her. If she says "no" at any point
during a sexual interaction, it means "no."
Sadly, there are women in the world who


think it is all right to claim rape when it did
not occur. A recent example of this is Kobe
Bryant's "rape" case. These women are sick
and they hurt the real women in the world
who have been raped. Yet, these few cases of
women screaming for attention should not be
used as examples to justify rape. As for your
crude "take responsibility" example, I have
one thing to say: Unlike a car, a woman can
not lock her body. You can protect your car
from being stolen by locking the doors or
buying an alarm, no matter how much of a
"burden" that is.
What society needs to do is change its
views on rape and sexual assault as a whole.
Women do need to be responsible. Yet, rap-
ists also have to take responsibility for their
actions. Society needs to make them see violat-


ing somebody else's body never is justifiable.

Students lose if they do not vote locally
Editor: Campaign season is here again. No,
it's not time for the flashy state and national
campaigns but time for real politics: local
elections. Every year, students hear the same
plea to get involved, but it always falls upon
deaf ears. Voters aged 18-25 consistently have
among the the lowest turnouts of all groups,
but it finally caught up with them in Ocala.
Tuesday night the Ocala City Commission
took a stand against underage drinking by
approving an ordinance banning anyone


under 21 from going to bars or clubs. Dozens
of students and youths piled into the commis-
sion chambers to argue their case, but the war
had already been lost at the polls. Had youth
in Ocala taken a few moments out of their time
to research candidates and vote, they wouldn't
be relegated to watching Saturday Night Live
reruns. In about a month, three.pro-student,
pro-business city commissioners in Gainesville
will come up for reelection. Take some time
to research and see where they stand and if
the challengers understand the issues. With
Mayor Hanrahan and President Machen cur-
rently using a public relations campaign to
curb underage drinking, make sure you aren't
mute if they look to Ocala for ideas.

Forestry students


prevent forest fires


APRIL IS AN ACTIVE
MONTH FOR WILDFIRES.

By SKYLER SMITH
Alligator Writer
ssmith@alligator.org

UF forestry students are doing
their part to set forest fires.
Preventing fires by setting
supervised blazes is a method
used throughout the country. In
Florida alone, more than 34,000
acres were scorched to get rid of
underbrush so the ecosystems
could be protected from a devas-
tating uncontrolled fire, accord-
ing to the U.S. Forest Service.
Six miles northeast of
Gainesville, the UF-owned
Austin Carey Memorial Forest is
used as a teaching laboratory to
demonstrate different aspects of
forest ecosystem management,
according to the university's Web
site. Part of the forest's use is to
show the effectiveness of con-
trolled burns.
Between five and 15 con-
trolled fires are set throughout
the forest per year, said Alan
Long, a UF associate professor
in the School of Forest Resources
and Conservation.
"We're going to be doing one
or two a week for the next couple
months,". Long said, citing the


dry, temperate winter months
between December and March
as the busiest time for controlled
fires.
There have been two
Gainesville-area brushfires in
the past two weeks, including a
30-acre blaze Monday in High
Springs.
"A 15- to 30-acre fire isn't
unusual."
Alan Long
UF associate professor

Although Gainesville is going
through a dry spell and concerns
have been raised about extra
standing brush from two hurri-
canes, Long said there is nothing
to be overly concerned about.
There are at least 10 fires of
that size per year in Alachua
County, Long said.
"A 15- to 30-acre fire isn't un-
usual," he said.
However, he cautioned that
the most dangerous months for
wildfires have yet to come. April
and May, when temperatures are
rising and summer rains have
yet to arrive, are the most active
times of year, Long said.
Ideally, a forest should have
these preventative burns every
four to eight years to keep foliage
at a healthy level, Long said.


Forest research organizations honor UF researchers


By SKYLER SMITH
Alligator Writer
ssmith@alligator.org

Two UF researchers have been honored
with awards from an international organi-
zation for their contributions to the field of
agroforestry.
The International Union of Forest Research
Organizations has announced UF professor
P.K. Nair as the recipient of its lifetime scien-
tific achievement award. John Bellow, a for-


"It's always gratifying to get recog-
nition from your peers, and espe-
cially from a world body like this."
P.K. Nair
UF agroforestry professor

mer graduate student of Nair's, was selected
as one of seven students worldwide who won
the outstanding doctoral dissertation award.
Agroforestry is the science of specified
management of land to allow for the simulta-


neous production of crops and trees.
This is the first time a professor and
graduate student from the same school have
won awards as well as the first-ever lifetime
achievement award for a UF professor from
the TUFRO, according to Nair.
"It's always gratifying to get recognition
from your peers, and especially from a world
body like this," he said.
Nair has been working in the field of agro-
forestry since its inception he was among
the founders of the International Center for


Research in Agroforestry in 1978, he said.
He is director of the UF Center for
Subtropical Agroforestry in addition to his
faculty position.
Bellow, who obtained his PhD at UF, spent
over two years in Guatemala working on his
dissertation on increasing small-farm pro-
ductivity by growing fruit trees with annual
crops.
Nair and Bellow will be accepting their
awards in August in Brisbane, Australia at the
12th IUFRO World Congress.

Trash fire sparks


pastureland blaze


iNO INJURIES WERE RE-
PORTED IN 20-ACRE FIRE.

By MEGAN V. WINSLOW
Alligator Writer
mwinslow@alligator.org
More than 20 acres of pasture-
land burned in a brushfire on
Thursday afternoon.
Residents of a home at 19001
NW County Road 239 started the
fire in a nearby field to dispose of
yard debris and trash, said Mark
Hughes, an Alachua County Fire
Rescue spokesman.
But what started as a controlled
bur quickly escalated and spread
due to dry brush and strong
winds.
"To make a pun, it liter-
ally spread like wildfire," Hughes
said.
Although residents initially
tried to douse the flames with the
aid of a tractor, their attempts were
unsuccessful.
They placed a call for emer-
gency services because of the
threat of structural damage to a


nearby home and utility structures
around 1 p.m.
Firefighters from four differ-
ent agencies, including Alachua
County, the town of LaCrosse
and the cities of High Springs and
Newberry, as well as the Florida
Division of Forestry, responded to
the call. Over a dozen fire-rescue
vehicles were present at the scene,
Hughes said.
Ultimately,
Public. firefighters used
bulldozers and four-
wheel-drive vehicles
to extinguish the blaze.
No injuries were reported and
aside from the charred remains of
several fence posts, damage was
minimal.
Due to seasonally dry climate,
which often contributes to the
rapid spread of uncontrolled fires,
Alachua County Fire Rescue urges
local residents to report any signs
of smoke or flames as soon as pos-
sible.
"The sooner we receive notice,
the easier it is for us to contain the
fire," Hughes said.

FSU has $9 million in budget up in the air


FSU, from page 1

Board of Governors is due to FSU
holding the rotating chairmanship of
the Florida Student Association.
Eady voted against denying ap-
proval for the school even though
critics say it could devalue the science
degrees earned by FSU's students.
Eady did not attend the meeting but
voted via telephone. Calls to his FSU
office Thursday were not returned.
UF Student Body President Jamal
Sowell said he would have voted with
the governors to kill the chiropractic
school had he held the rotating seat.
The chiropractic school was present-
ed to FSU as a fait accompli, or done
deal, last year when Sen. Dennis Jones
(R-Treasure Island), an ally of then-
Senate President Jim King, pushed the
legislature to approve the school. King
Slater maneuvered to funnel $9 million
annually to the chiropractic school
from state liquor taxes.
But the Board of Governors ruled in
October that FSU must get the board's
approval before building the school.
Since then, some lawmakers have
hinted the board could face legislative

retaliation if it opposed the school.
At the Thursday meeting, Roberts
played down those rumors.
"Whatever we vote here will not
hurt us in the legislature," she said.
"These are honorable people."
"Whatever we vote here will
not hurt us in the legislature.
These are honorable people."
Carolyn Roberts
Board of Governors chairwoman

But in a telephone interview, Sen.
Jones said he was disappointed by
the decision and questioned whether a
board of 14 members should be able to
defy the will of the legislature.
"Ten people, all volunteers, have
denied access to this education to hun-
dreds of students," he said. "That's not
something I think the voters of Florida
ever imagined would happen."
It is unclear what will now happen
to the $9 million FSU was given last
year for the school, or to a $1.75 mil-
lion endowment for an FSU eminent
scholar chair for chiropractic research.
Jones said he hoped to keep the $9
million in the budget and attempt to


bring the chiropractic-school proposal
back to the governors at a later date.
"It's a tremendous loss for FSU," he
said. "If FSU doesn't build it [the chi-
ropractic school], there will be a public
university somewhere in the country
that will be the first."
But not everyone from FSU was ea-
ger to continue fighting for the school.
FSU Provost Larry Abele was up-
beat and said in an interview he was
glad the struggle was finally over.
For months, Abele has straddled a
position of official neutrality between
a faculty widely opposed to the school
and a Board of Trustees led by allies of
the powerful legislators who pushed
for the school's creation last year.
Such allies include John Thrasher,
who was chairman of the FSU Board
of Trustees until its last meeting, and
Jim Smith, who was selected to suc-
ceed him. Both are Tallahassee lobby-
ists whose livelihoods depend on the
goodwill of state legislators.
Current Senate President Tom Lee,
who many see as a reformer, said Jan.
12 he wants to ban lobbyists from serv-
ing on such boards to avoid conflicts of
interest for those who "depend on the
state legislature to butter their bread."

SG to lower prices of

performance tickets

REITZ, from page 1

may allocate $75,000 to lower the price of student
tickets for performances at UF.
"We are providing concerts to the whole com-
munity," said Michael Blachly, associate dean for
resources and services at the College of Fine Arts.
"SG's support is critical to us because we reach the
student crowd through you (SG)."
The college plans to match the proposed dona-
tion. In the past two years, it has paid $100,000 to
lower the price of student tickets.
The committee argued too few students would
benefit, as not all students will see the shows, but
Blachly cited a large growth in student attendance
to counter the doubts.
"We increased student attendance by 938 per-
cent when we invested in lowering the price of
tickets for students," Blachly said. "More tickets
will be sold with our combined efforts to lower
the cost."
The Student Senate will vote on the proposals
Tuesday.

PUBLIC SAFETY

Batteries stolen at store


By MEGAN V. WINSLOW
Alligator Writer
mwinslow@alligator.org

In what appears to be a growing trend at
a local supermarket, two area men have been
arrested in connection with stealing alkaline
batteries, according to the Gainesville Police
Department.
Reports state both suspects preferred
pink-bunny performance instead of the
"Coppertop" crop.
Frederick Resha Warren, 19, of 6102
NW 26th Terrace, attempted to walk out of
the Publix supermarket at 1302 N Main St.
without paying for batteries he had allegedly
snatched off a shelf on aisle nine, according
to reports.
A Publix loss prevention officer watched
a man bend over his bookbag, a pack of
Energizer batteries in hand. Seconds later, the
officer lost sight of the merchandise, reports
state.
The man then went to the store's rest-


room, where he allegedly removed the bat-
teries from their packaging.
Upon recovering the discarded container
from the men's room, the officer confronted
Warren, reports state.
Although he originally suggested that
the packaging had accidentally come open
and he forgot about stowing the batteries
in his jacket pocket, Warren later admitted
he was -unable to afford the batteries, which
cost $7.99.
According to reports, Dustin Tyler St.
Johns, 34, was a little more ambitious in his
version of the events.
St. Johns, of 4135 Main St., was arrested
by the Florida Highway Patrol on Thursday
evening in connection with the theft of two
packages of Energizer batteries.
The alleged incident occurred at the same
Publix supermarket where the younger but
equally unsuccessful Warren had tried his
luck.
Both St. Johns and Warren have been
charged with misdemeanor offenses.

whole," Fields said. "You are our next
generation, and I am so proud about
this donation."
Fields said the UF community's
contribution to the Red Cross will go
toward providing immediate shelter,
food and first aid for tsunami vic-
tims.
"At first, the Red Cross is con-
cerned with meeting their immediate
needs, and after that the Red Cross
will step in on the long-term recovery
process," Fields said.
Although Fields appreciated the
generosity of the students, she ex-
pressed concern about matters here
at home.
"Locally, we need a lot of help,"
she said. "Services are simply needed.
When there is a fire, it doesn't matter
if it is a wealthy or poor family, the
Red Cross is there."
The North Central Florida Chapter
has nearly 300 volunteers and is re-
sponsible for providing services for
eight counties in both Florida and
Georgia, making it the largest geo-
graphical responsibility of any Red


of student efforts
Cross facility in the Southeast United
States.
A five-day U.N. conference in
Japan that concluded Saturday de-
termined a tsunami warning system
should be put in place for the South
Asia region within the next 12 to 18
months.
The conference also set up commu-
nication channels between nations to
share weather data, establish cleanup
and relief funds, and formulate re-
sponse strategies to help even the
odds between nature's unpredictabil-
ity and the human lives in its path.
The 8.9-magnitude earthquake on
Dec. 26 has resulted in the deaths of
hundreds of thousands of people in
South Asia.
Differing government tallies
have put the total number of dead
in 11 countries between 144,000 and
178,000. As many as 147,000 people
are missing many of them pre-
sumed dead raising the possibility
that more than 300,000 died.
All told, governments and inter-
national bodies have pledged about
$4 billion for tsunami aid-and recon-
struction.
The Associated Press contributed to
this report.

Senior, freshman combination contributes half of team's rebounds


BASKETBALL, from page 24


uct of a conscious attempt to improve.
"I talked to Al and the other bigs," Lee said. "And we've
just been trying to make a concerted effort to dominate the
paint and make a stride on the boards this year."
Lee, who had one of his best performances last season
against the Gamecocks with 21 points and 14 rebounds in a
65-62 UF win, has had some inconsistent offensive perfor-


mances while averaging 12 points per game. But Coach Billy
Donovan said the senior is the type of player who shouldn't
be judged on his point total but on his ability to pull down
12 to 15 rebounds per game and improve the play of his sur-
rounding teammates by attracting the defense's attention.
"That's why I'm so proud of the way David is playing
right now," Donovan said. "Because it's not all about points,
and it's not all about scoring. It's about making other play-
ers better."
And who other than Lee's freshman partner in basketball
repossession benefits more from his presence?


Donovan said he notices opponents so concerned with
boxing out Lee that Horford often can swoop in for the re-
bound. And just as often, Lee will draw a double team to
leave Horford free on a put-back opportunity.
Lee likened the situation to his underclassman experi-
ence playing with Matt Bonner.
"When I was a sophomore, and Matt Bonner was getting
the double teams, and Matt Bonner was getting the atten-
tion, I was able to get some good rebounds on the outside,"
Lee said. "I think Al is really taking great advantage of that
right now."


Weekend will be critical for rising stars


RECRUITING, from page 24

Scout.com, have expressed desire to play together.
"I love Coach Meyer's system because he runs
the same thing I ran in high school," Jackson said..
"I think I'd do well ... but the main thing I'm look-
ing for is a comfortable environment."
Jackson lists UF, LSU, Oklahoma State, Notre
Dame and Texas as his final candidates.
Also making the trip will be Daytona Beach
Mainland High teammates Avery Atkins and
Brian Ellis. Atkins is ranked the No. 5 defensive
back in the nation by Scout.com, while Ellis, a tight
end, is ranked No. 22.
Atkins has been an undecided commitment to


UF for some time, and Meyer and his staff can take
solace in the fact that they'll be his final official vis-
it. At 5-foot-11, 185 pounds and 4.5 speed, Atkins is
also friends with visiting linebacker Jon Demps.
While the recruiting process will conclude
on National Signing Day on Wednesday, Meyer
has been keeping tabs on UF's recruiting process
throughout January.
"The more recruiting weekends I've gone
through, I've had the chance to talk to the student-
athletes because I want to learn as much as I could
about this university," Meyer said. "It's not a good
university, it's a great university, and I look for-
ward to finishing this recruiting year strong."
Oral commitments are non-binding until a national
letter-of-intent is signed on National Signing Day on
Wednesday.


SHAF, from page 24


5 points. Impressively, all came on
the road.
Led by the SEC's highest per-
centage shooter in Carlos Powell,
South Carolina doesn't do anything
spectacular, but does everything
well. They will keep the game close
and try to steal it toward the end.
But not if UF comes out ready
to play. The Gators are bigger, more
athletic and possess better shooters


than the Gamecocks.
We have seen glimpses of a
team on the rise, but its history of
inconsistency casts a constant cloud
of doubt over the O'Dome. If UF is
to continue its maturation into a
legitimate Tournament contender,
this is the type of game it needs to
show it can win.
Many will look to Tuesday
night's game in Starkville as a
barometer for the Gators, but
Saturday's performance against
South Carolina will tell me all I
need to know.

atorsb softball opens season with doubleheader


* UF WILL FACE FLORIDA INTERNA-
TIONAL AND FLORIDA ATLANTIC.

By WILLIS JACOBSON
Alligator Writer

"First thing's first" is the motto of the
2005 UF softball team. While the phrase
serves as a reminder to focus on the basics
and take each game one at a time, the Gators
will get their first real "first" of the season
this Saturday in Miami.
The' Gators will open the season at the
Sunshine State Softball Kickoff with a
doubleheader against Florida Atlantic and
host-team Florida International. Leading a
squad that is returning nine starters from a
year ago, fifth-year coach Karen Johns says


her team is anxious to get out and play.
"I think they're real excited for Saturday
and just getting that opening day out in
front of us here and seeing how we stack
up against outside competition," Johns said.
"Overall, I think the team is very excited for
it."
Second baseman Savana Kelly, in par-
ticular, will be even more excited than usual.
The freshman from Ft. Lauderdale will be
playing her first collegiate game only min-
utes away from her hometown.
"My whole family is coming down and
they'll be there so I'm kind of playing in
front of a home crowd but not, so it's really
exciting for me," Kelly said.
Noting that she was recruited by FIU,
Kelly says that she will have extra mo-


tivation' to play well against the Golden
Panthers this weekend.
The fate of the Gators, though, will likely
hinge on the performance of their pitching
staff, led by sophomore
ace Stacey Stevens.
"Stacey is going to lead
the way for us, but we're
looking more towards this
group to give us their indi-
vidual efforts, and I think
combined the group will
Johns do well for us," Johns said.
"Each one brings a differ-
ent element that we're looking for and we'll
move them in and out accordingly to the
competition that we're playing."
The probable starters for Saturday's


games will be seniors Amanda Knowles and
Mandy Schuerman, respectively.
UF will enter the 2005 season unranked
but receiving votes in both major polls.
The Southeastern Conference Preseason
Coaches poll projected UF to finish third in
the Eastern Division.
The Gators will play FAU at 11:00 a.m.
and FIU at 1:30 p.m. Both games will take
place at the University Park Softball Field on
the FIU campus in Miami.
This is UF's first meeting with FAU
since the Owls ended their 2003 season by.
knocking them out of the NCAA regional
in Gainesville. The all-time series is tied at
three games apiece. This will be UF's first
matchup with FIU since 2002. The Golden
Panthers lead the all-time series 2-1.


TENNIS

Jackson calls for more discipline against top teams


By NATASHA WEINSTEIN and
KATE CAVANNA
Alligator Writers

It's going to be a busy weekend
for the UF men's tennis team.
Beginning today at 4 p.m., the
men will host unranked Furman,
then travel on Saturday to Duke for
their first match against a top-ten
team on Sunday.
Coach Andy Jackson hopes this
afternoon's match sees the Gators
play better than last week, despite
their 7-0 opening victory.
"I'd like to see across the board
more discipline made on the court
that is absolutely necessary against
top-ten teams," Jackson said. "We've
had good quality practices, I feel like
we've made preparations to play
Furmnn and ultimately Duke on the
racd. So far, it's been a good week."
After losing to Central Florida,
top-seeded pair Hamid Mirzadeh
and Chris Brandi spent most of this


week reverting to the basics of dou-
bles tennis and re-acquainting them-
selves with playing together. Their
last match together was during the
NCAA quarterfinals last May.
"I'm pretty confident that me
and Chris will get back to our nor-
mal ways for Furman," Mirzadeh
said. "They've had good doubles
teams the past few years, so it will
be a good match."
While the Gators are heavily
favored, Jackson said the Furman
team will be more disciplined than
Central Florida, as they are led by a
top coach, Paul Scarpa.
"I don't believe in planning
that things are going to be easy;
I'm expecting that it's going to be
much closer and harder fought
than UCF," Jackson said. "Furman
is hard-nosed, solid, disciplined
and often pulls big upsets. They are
dangerous."
After the Furman match, the
team will focus on Sunday's meeting


against No. 9 Duke. Besides playing
a top-ranked team, another first for
the season will be that the match
will take place indoors. Jackson said
it will be good preparation for the
upcoming team indoor competition.
"I'm pretty confident that
me and Chris will get back
to our normal ways for
Furman. They've had good
doubles teams the past
few years, so it will be a
good match."
Hamid Mirzadeh
UF tennis player


"It's going to be loud in there and
the freshmen are going to have to
deal with the pressure of loud col-
lege fans in their face," Mirzadeh
said. "I'm excited this is my first big
test as the leader, and I'm hoping I


can bring my team to victory."

WOMEN WIN: Looking for its first
official win of the season,.the UF
women's tennis team took on the
UCF Golden Knights Thursday
night in a windy match at the Ring
Tennis Complex.
Coach Roland Thornqvist
changed the doubles positions,
moving junior Jennifer Magley and
senior Zerene Reyes to the No. 2
spot after they played at Nd. 1 in
their opening match against Baylor.
Freshmen Lolita Frangulyan and
Whitney Benik, ranked third in the
country, took the No. 1 spot, and
sophomore Nina Suvak and fresh-
man Alex Liles played at No. 3.
The move to No. 2 did not slow
Magley and Reyes, as they defeated
Becky Gordon and Ola Luczak 8-0.
Frangulyan and Benik domi-
nated in the early stages of their No.
3 match, gaining points with Benik's
quick net work and ball placement.


The pair began to struggle in the
fifth game, floating up too many
balls, which their opponents, UCF's
Pamela Fernandez and Kristina
Lohmos returned with punishing
overheads. The pair fought hard
in a back-and-forth match, finally
defeating UCF 8-5.
In the No. 3 spot, Suvak and
Liles again showed their power as
a doubles team. The duo quickly
went ahead 3-0 before allowing
UCF's Megan Hunter and Jennifer
Carati to climb their way back to 3-2.
The Gators won the sixth game and
dominated the rest of the match, not
allowing UCF to win another game
and taking the set 8-2.
The Gators won all six singles
matches, with only Frangulyan hav-
ing any trouble, taking her match to
a tiebreaker. She won the match 3-6,
6-3, 10-3, finishing the 7-0 sweep.
UF will see its next action on
Saturday at 1 p.m. against Florida
International.

Intense challenge awaits UF in stronger Alabama


B THE TIDE'S ASHLEY MILES HAS
ALREADY WON SEC GYMNAST OF
THE WEEK TWICE THIS YEAR.

By DAN TREAT
Alligator Writer
dtreat@alligator.org

UF coach Rhonda Faehn has made it
very clear this season: the Gators' oppo-
nent is of little or no consequence to her
and her team.
This week, she went so far as to say that
she wasn't even sure if the Gators knew
where they were ranked.
After dropping to No. 12 after the sea-
son opener, UF has climbed all the way
back to No. 5 after last week's victory over
Nebraska.
The Gators now face their stiffest chal-
lenge yet this season as they welcome
No. 4 Alabama to the O'Connell Center
tonight.
"We're not as a team looking at that at
all," Faehn said. "What we're trying to do
this week in the gym is trying to fix the

Gymnast Breanne King and the Gators host No. 4 Alabama tonight. King, who will be
one of three Gators to compete in the all-around tonight, holds UF's highest individual


score on beam this season (9.95).
Conference Gymnast of the Week the past
two weeks.
The Crimson Tide have also added
Olympian Terin Humphrey to the mix.
She won two silver medals in Athens
this summer: one in the team competition
and one on uneven bars.
Humphrey will compete on uneven
bars and balance beam tonight against the
Gators.


The Gators' lineup will be nearly iden-
tical to the one they trotted out against
Nebraska last Friday.
Freshman Ashley Reed and sopho-
mores Breanne King and Katie Rue will
again be the three all-around performers
for the Gators.
Rue's score of 39.35 last week was the
Gators' highest scoring performance this
season.


UF seniors Erinn Dooley and Orley
Szmuch will again be limited in their ac-
tion this week.
Dooley is still being hampered ry a
stress fracture in her foot.
"This week, her bar practices have gone
much better," Faehn said. "Probably the
best they've been all year.
"I'm sure last week [when she had an
exhibition fall on bars] was difficult for
her, but I think that it was beneficial."'
Faehn said she would still compete on
balance beam in addition to another exhi-
bition on uneven bars.
Szmuch competed in the all-around
at the Super Six Challenge but has not
returned to the event since because of a
lingering ankle injury.
Faehn said she eventually will return
to competing in the all-around, but the
coaching staff is going to continue holding
her off the floor exercise.
Tracey Rai will return to the floor
lineup after sitting out last week ag. nst
Nebraska.
It will likely be at least another week
before All-American Chantelle Tousek
returns to the main lineup as well. Faehn
said that is because of difficult skills.
"She did an excellent job on balance
beam last week," Faehn said. "The biggest
thing is that in her routines, she has brand
new skills that are of such high difficulty
and risk factor that I want to be able to
put her under the pressure situations on
numerous occasions before she actually
gets plugged into the lineup."


ators can't contain Georgia

The UF women's basketball had a chance to dis-
tance itself from the Southeastern Conference pack
Thursday and beat a rival in the process. But, after a
fast start, UF fizzled and lost at Georgia, 81-61.
The Gators (12-7, 3-3 SEC) dominated the first
five minutes, jumping out to a 15-5 lead. Once
Georgia (16-5, 5-2 SEC) took the lead with about
three minutes left in the first half, the Bulldogs
never looked back.
Tasha Humphrey recorded 21 points and nine
rebounds for Georgia. Coach Carolyn Peck said.UF
contained the freshman, but Georgia eventually
found a way to get her touches.
"We were making it as difficult as you possibly
can for Tasha Humphrey to get the ball inside,"
Peck said. "That's how Georgia came back into
the game, they figured out a way to get her the ball
inside and she was able to finish."
Peck said she was proud of her team's effort.
Despite the final score, she feels better about
the team now than after last Sunday's loss to
Mississippi. She added that Thursday's game was
very physical, which benefited Georgia. So physi-
cal, in fact, UF's leading scorer, Bemice Mosby,
came away with a sore shoulder and a gash on her
face.
Mosby was again the leading scorer, with 25
points on 8 of 18 shooting.'Only one other Gator,
senior Tamia Williams, finished in double figures
with 14 points.


UF's reserves pitched in 7 points versus 34 for
Georgia. Dressing.only nine due to injured guards
Kim Dye and Danielle Santos, it seemed like it
was only a matter of time before the lack of depth
caught up with UF.

"[Depth] plays a factor, but I know the
girls on our bench are tough. It was
just a night where they couldn't get it
going."
Bernice Mosby
UF forward


Mosby disagrees.with that assessment saying
that the bench players played good defense, but
their shots were not falling.
"[Depth] plays a factor, but I know the girls on
our bench are tough," Mosby said. "It was just a
night where they couldn't get it going."
The Gators had several chances in the second
half. Down 31-29 at halftime, UF would tie the
game with free throws from junior Dalila Eshe
less than a minute into the second half. Georgia
began an 8-0 run on the next possession, but UF
nearly eliminated the lead, trimming the deficit to
45-43 with 13 minutes left. That was as close as they
would get to a win.
"We got the momentum back at times," said
Williams of UF's second-half play. "But basketball
is a game of runs, and bottom line is they had the
last run."

Serious opponents


precede title meet


* THE GATORS WILL FACE
VIRGINIA AND TENNESSEE.

By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Writer

Procrastination isn't an option
for the Gators.
UF is less than a month away
from the Southeastern Conference
championship, otherwise known
as crunch time for the men's and
women's swimming and div-
ing teams. With the impending
conference championship, this
weekend's meets against Virginia
(ranked No. 10 and 12 in the men's
and women's CSCAA polls, re-
spectively) and Tennessee (No. 17
in the men's poll) are final warm-
ups for No. 3 UE.
Coach Gregg Troy believes that
although Virginia is the best team
in the Atlantic Coast Conference,
the Gators must not sleep on
conference rival Tennessee either.
Since the Volunteers have never
beaten the Gators before, it will
serve as an extra motivational fool
for Tennessee.
"We've never lost to Tennessee,
and I think that bothers them,"
Troy said. "Tennessee will come in
fired up and ready to go. They've
had their best teams in years.
Virginia is by far the best team
-in-the ACC, and it's a-real ehal-


lenge facing a conference rival in
Tennessee the next day."
However, Troy still has his
teams focused on the overall pic-
ture, saying that this is not the time
for the Gators to lose ground.
"Sometimes you improve in
times, and sometimes it's in tech-
nical improvements," Troy said.
"We want continued improvement
from week to
S, week so we
have a good
mental state for
conference."
The Gators
are still looking
for their stron-
gest formula
Troy
and may tweak
the line-ups this weekend in order
to find that.
"We're making final decisions
on where we put swimmers in
conference," he said. "You may not
see our strongest line-ups."
While UF does have its sig t set
on the final stages of conference
and NCAA play, Troy is still aware
that Virginia will be prepared
for one of its bigger meets of the
season.
"Virginia is very well-coached,"
he said. "It's an opportunity for
them to beat one of the best teams
in the country. We need ft be
aware of that and treat them like
anyone else."

Lee, Horford play tough down low

By BRYAN APP
Alligator Staff Writer
bapp@alligator.org

For forward David Lee, the losses were miser-
able. But the way in which they were incurred be-
came intolerable.
Lee noticed a distinct and frustrating pattern in
his team's defeats last season.
"The most consistent thing we got killed in
was rebounding," Lee said. "It was game in and
game out in the [Southeastern Conference]. When
we'd lose, we'd get out-rebounded by 15 rebounds
against the bigger teams."
Coming into his senior season, Lee crafted a mis-
sion statement for himself and his teammates.
"I said, 'If we're going to lose, let's try not to
make it because of our defense
or our rebounding, let's make it
because we had an off-shooting
night."'
And so far, those words have
amounted to more than mere
4%, rhetoric for the Gators (12-4, 4-1
'SEC).
SLee After finishing last season
seventh in the SEC in offensive
Srebounding and eighth in defensive rebounding,
UF has improved to fourth and second in those
A respective categories this season while increasing
a league-seventh-best 0.8 rebounding margin to a
second-best 7.2.
Such development has led the Gators to double-
digit rebounding advantages and consequently lop-
sided wins at Vanderbilt and against a Georgia team
that tried to limit their running style of offense.
Saturday at 1 p.m., the Gators, led by Lee and
freshman forward Al Horford, again look to control
the boards when they face perhaps their most dif-
ficult conference opponent thus far, South Carolina
(11-6, 3-3 SEC).
While the Gators have out-rebounded their last
i1 three opponents by an average of 18.3 per game, Lee
and Horford have combined for nearly half of UF's
Matt Marriott/ Alligator Staff total rebounds.
UF's Al Horford has played a crucial role in UF's rebounding resurgence According to Lee, the difference is just the prod-
this season. Horford ranks 10th in the SEC in rebounding. SEE BASKETBALL, PAGE 21


Recruits


to tour UF
By ERIC ESTEBAN

The Gators are on the clock.
Coach Urban Meyer and staff have
reached the recruiting equivalent of foot-
ball's two-minute drill, as they will host
their final group of visitors this weekend.
"About six or seven hours after
the Fiesta Bowl ended, I was
already recruiting. It's hard to
compete against the in-state
programs and the SEC, but I
really do believe that we have
the best product out there."
Urban Meyer
UF football coach

The final weekend of what has proved
to be a hectic first month for the new staff
in Gainesville will feature more than 10
recruits visiting for a sneak peek of what
wearing orange and blue is all about.
"About six or seven hours after the
Fiesta Bowl ended, I was already re-
cruiting," said Meyer, who appeared on
Sunshine Network on Wednesday.
Playing relationships will be the
key to success this weekend, as visiting
prospects include several teammates and
out-of-state recruits who have openly ex-
pressed their desire to play together.

back R.J. Jackson and wide receiver

Gators shouldn't overlook Gamecocks in preparation for Bulldogs


T he ship has been righted.
Every team has a hiccup every here
and there, right?
An overtime conference loss on the road
doesn't look so bad after a 23-point thrashing
of Georgia (or was that South Atlanta High?)
on national television.
Matt Walsh has shown Terrell Owens that
miraculous recoveries are possible.
Anthony Roberson has picked his game
up to nationally recognized status. David Lee
is banging the boards like never before. And
Al Horford looks like the second coming of


Udonis Haslem.
The Gators now sit at 4-1 in Southeastern
Conference play, good enough for second in
the East.
So, gas up the plane, and it's off to Starkville
for a date with the powerhouse Bulldogs.
What is that you say? Another game? Oh,
but that's just South Carolina. And thus,.the
infamous "trap" game is born.
Call it what you want a look ahead, the
sandwich, an oversight but a game such as
the one UF will play on Saturday is the most
dangerous kind on any team's schedule.

Sure, the players
all say the right things
and will be prepared by
coaches who have seen
this scenario hundreds
of times. But, there is
no way to tell if UF has
taken its opponents se-
riously until tipoff.
Don't think the
Cocks have enough


game to take the Gators to the woodshed on
their home court?


Let's start with their coach, Dave Odom.
He is one of only two coaches to be named
Coach of the Year in both the SEC and ACC
(and if you forgot how good the ACC is, just
check out the Top 5). He knows UF might be
looking ahead, and he'll have his team ready.
Second, despite their six losses, the
Gamecocks have given top-caliber opponents
fits all season. This is a team that lost to No.
6 Kentucky, No. 7 Kansas, No. 18 Pittsburgh
and No. 22 Mississippi State by an average of
