at every level of his football career, retired on
Thursday as the NFLs all-time leader in rushing
yards and rushing touchdowns.
"I've given everything I can possible to the

in Jacksonville for the Super Bowl festivities.
Although Smith was a highly sought recruit
out of Pensacola, many skeptics questioned his

would star at UF.
It took just three games for Smith to silence
In 1987, Smith saw limited action in a season-
opening loss to Miami, but in week three against
No. 11 Alabama, he broke out for a UF freshman
record 224 rushing yards in the Gators' surpris-
ing 23-14 road victory.
Smith never looked back, finishing the season
with a Southeastern Conference-best 1,341 yards
en route to 3,928 rushing yards and 36 touch-
downs in just three seasons in Gainesville.
He holds UF's single-game rushing record of
316 yards against New Mexico in 1989.

UF libraries may hinder Top-10 research aspirations
By EMILY YEHLE
In order to compete with
America's top universities, UF's
library system must meet a "dire
need" of $11 million over the
next five years to better fund its
staff and build students' resourc-
es, officials say.
The university's goal to be-
come a Top 10 public research
institution might be hindered by
the George A. Smathers Libraries
system, which ranks 20th on a list
compiled by the Association of
Research Libraries, or ARL.
"It's one of the important tools
of a university," Faculty Senate
Chairman Pierre Ramond said.
"Universities are basically as
good as [their] libraries."
Scott Nygren, chairman of
the Faculty Senate's Council on
Academic Infrastructure and
Support, will give a report on
the situation at the Feb. 17 Senate
meeting, but will hold off on pro-
posing any action.
In the report, compiled by
library director Dale Canelas,
UF is ranked in
against the Top
10 public uni-
based on a 2002-
03 ARL list.
In six of the
Ramond seven categories
that fall under
the "university characteristics"
section of the list, UF outranks
at least seven df the Top 10 uni-
The amount of students, fac-
ulty and doctorate fields at each
school are among the characteris-
tics addressed in that section.
But in nine of the 13 categories
under the "library characteris-
tics" and "user support charac-
teristics" sections, all 10 institu-
tions outrank UF.
Those categories rank the
libraries' budgets, the total num-
ber of volumes each holds and
the number of volumes held per
Also, UF's library faculty
salaries are ranked No. 93 of 114
university libraries in the United'
States and Canada.
For UF to become a top-tier
research university, its library
needs funds to address these
shortcomings, Canelas said.
"I find it distressing to be told
all the time that we want to be in
the Top 10 when we're funded at
around 35," she said. "You can't
do that because it costs us the
same to buy books as [University
of California at] Berkeley."

Students distribute Honor Code cards on campus
By MEGAN SEERY
Alligator Staff Writer
In a bid to boost academic integrity among
UF students, discount cards complete with the
university Honor Code soon will be distrib-
uted on campus.
The cards, which can be used at area busi-
nesses, such as Pita Pit and Casino's Pizza, are
a result of a project by the Bateman Team, a UF
public relations team.
"Hopefully, the card will be a daily re-
minder because students will see the Honor
Code every time they use it," team member
Ashley Zandy said. "They'll think of it when
they have an opportunity to do something
Of 815 students surveyed, 74 percent said
they had an average or below average under-
standing of UF's Honor Code.
And 24 percent of those surveyed said they
had cheated while at UF.
"We sampled large classes from several
colleges," Zandy said. "It was a non-random
sample, so our results cannot be generalized
for the entire university."
The team was given a challenge to pro-
mote academic integrity among students for
this year's Bateman Team contest, she said.
It's difficult to compare the number of UF
cheaters to those at peer institutions because
many schools are not obligated to provide
the information to the public, team member
Jeremy Katzman said.
Florida's public records laws could have
made available the survey results if it had been
conducted by the university.
Now that the team's results are in, it's
important for students to create awareness,
"Do you want to be competing against
someone who is cheating?" Katzman asked.
"It cheapens your degree."
"Do you want to be competing
against someone who is cheat-
ing? It cheapens your degree."
-Bateman Team member
The team, which has to submit its com-
pleted project in March, is working on a way
to evaluate the program's success.
"We'll see how many cards get passed
out," Katzman said, noting they are not valid
until students sign them. "Businesses will tell
us if students are using the cards."
The Dean of Students Office and Tutoring
Zone, which are co-sponsoring the project,
paid for 15,000 cards as part of the pilot pro-
gram. The dean's office may continue the pro-
gram if it is successful, Zandy said.
About 5,000 cards will be passed out to stu-
dents at special events and in some classrooms,
and the rest will be distributed during Dean of
Students Office programs like Preview.
Student Body President Jamal Sowell and
Vice President Jennifer Puckett signed the first
cards in a symbolic gesture Thursday after-
noon on Turlington Plaza.
And although he couldn't comment on in-
cidences of academic dishonesty at UF, Sowell
said ethics in the classroom are becoming a
major student issue.
"Cheating is common at universities na-
tionwide," he said. 'It's time that students
stop and evaluate actions such as these."
Volunteer program helps handicapped get in shape

Some walk faster than others,
some say hello clearer than the next,
but all the students from the Sidney

and behavior takes the smiles to
Stopka provides UF students
with the opportunity to help men-

and pretest them, train them and
then post-test them," Stopka said.
"They said they wouldn't under-
stand what you were talking about
and that it just wasn't possible."
Yet, according to research stud-
ies by Stopka and others from the
department of health education
and behavior, the program vastly
improves the Sidney Lanier Center
students' stamina and strength.
Ann Goodman, a teacher at the
Sidney Lanier Center, helped Stopka
create the program in 1987 when
several employers complained that
"the students were not physically fit
to handle their jobs.
"I haven't received one com-
plaint since then," Goodman said.
Not only do the students im-
prove physically, they grow socially.
"This program is so meaningful
to my students," Goodman said.
"They consider the volunteers their
peers and friends."
The program appears to benefit
everyone involved, Stopka said.
"I often see more change in my
volunteers than I do in the Sidney
kids," Stopka said. "I think they are
surprised by the friendships formed
and how much they actually have in
common with the kids."
UF senior Taisha Richardson be-
gan volunteering last Fall to receive
"The program changed the way
I looked at a lot of things. It became
hanging out with friends and not
just getting hours," Richardson said,
adding that she recommends it to
other UF students.
"It's one of the most exhilarating,
liberating things you don't know
what to expect," Richardson said:
"And then the kids come put a smile
on your face."
The program is held every
Tuesday and Thursday from 12:30
p.m. to 2 p.m. at Living Well and
always welcomes new volunteers.
Extravaganza showcases talent, celebrates black history
* THIS WAS THE FIRST TIME SINCE 1991 THAT
THE EVENT TOOK THE FORM OF A PLAY.
By LINDSAY TAULBEE
Students in the University Auditorium on Thursday were
witness to two weddings, a birth and a graduation all in one
The Black Male Extravaganza, hosted by Kappa Alpha Psi
fraternity as part of Black History Month, aimed to showcase
Students rapped, danced, sang, played the piano and re-
cited poetry, all in the context of a play chronicling the events in
the life of one young man.
SThe play, entitled "His Journey: The Life, Longing and Love
of a -Black Man," showed how success can be defined differ-
ently from different perspectives, extravaganza co-director
Travis Lester said.
"It's just basically talking about how there are different
paths for black men," he said.
This year marked the first time the event took the form of a
play since the extravaganza was created
"We implemented the various areas
of talent on campus throughout the
play," he said.
Student performers from all comers
of university life performed, and event
Sco-director Andre Samuels wrote the
Black History original script.
Month "Everyone's part fit them perfectly,"
He noted the approximately 150
people in the audience visibly reacted to the onstage events.
"People were really into the play," he said.
The story began before the main character was born, with
the wedding of his parents.
SAfter his father's death, the story focuses on the main char-
acter, Walter Johnson, as he graduates high school and goes to
college. The story ended with Johnson's own wedding.
Woven into the play were performances by students who
sang, recited poetry, and danced, including a dance perfor-
mance by Apocalypse Dance Troupe. Students in the audience
sang along with the music and danced in their seats while hear-
ing the fictional Johnson's life story.
His parents' wedding scene drew "awws" from the mostly
"I expected a little bit bigger turnout, but I think the people
who were here really enjoyed themselves," Lester said.
Ronald Diltz, a UF theatre student who has been acting for
eight years, played the role of Johnson.
"They were interested in me playing the lead role," he said.
"I took the challenge."
Diltz said he felt everyone involved came together to put on
a good show.
"I was really, happy with the cast, and being able to pull it
off," he said.

There comes a time in all students' lives when they have
to take responsibility for themselves.
For some, this means going off to college to live on their
own and learn how to pick out their own clothes.
For others, it means leaving school, getting a job and
starting a family or at least a mortgage.
Here at the Department of Darts & Laurels, however, it
means finally agreeing to pay for your share of the pizza.
Whatever the defining moment happens to be for you,
make sure you're ready to step up and be a man (or wom-
So cut your hair, put on your grown-up clothes and get
out the door early to beat the morning traffic on your way to
this week's edition of...
Darts & Laurels
Because we're suckers for stories about estranged parents
choosing to take responsibility for their children, we kick
things off by extending a maybe-they-really-do-care-after-
all LAUREL to the Florida Legislature, the State University
System's favorite deadbeat dads, for giving UF $39 million
to partially make up for three or four years of endowment
support payments they were behind in making.
The payments, which are intended to match private
donations, still are a year behind. On the bright side, the
Legislature's recommitment makes UF hopeful it may see
money more often from now on.
Moving on to an example of people taking credit for oth-
er peoples' actions, we toss a somebody-thought-man-I've-
got-to-get-in-on-that-action DART to Iraqi insurgent group
the Green Brigade, who in a questionable-sounding video
sent to Al-Jazeera claimed responsibility for the crash of the
British military plane on the day of the Iraqi elections.
Much like an old B-rated war movie, the video opens
with a finger pressing a button on a box with wires com-
ing out of it and then cuts to the launch of a pair of missiles
or rockets. The video does not show any impact, however,
instead ending with footage of people walking through the
wreckage of a plane.
Yep, sounds like compelling evidence to us.
Then, wondering if maybe there are some things you
just shouldn't take responsibility for, we throw a how-
about-a-pom-and-lingerie-subsidy-next-time DART to the
crazy people in charge of Medicare for developing a new
program that will cover prescriptions for Viagra and other
But the image of senior citizens being federally funded to
get jiggy won't be the only thing disturbing taxpayers, as the
extended program is expected to cost more than $500 billion
over the next decade.
To put this in perspective, Anthony Cordesman of the
Center for Strategic and International Studies estimated the
war in Iraq cost the United States $128 billion up to the end
of 2004 about a quarter of the 10-year figure for the new
Finally, we give a now-this-is-how-you-spread-peace-
and-freedom LAUREL to the leaders of Egypt, Jordan,
Israel and Palestine for planning a summit to discuss meth-
ods of decreasing tension in the Middle East.
The summit which will focus on the reduction of vio-
lence between Israelis and Palestinians should be a suc-
cess, because it's hard to imagine any ill-will surviving the
luxurious assault of Egypt's opulent Red Sea resort Sharm el
Sheik, where it will be held.
Hey, even the most responsible parents should be al-
lowed to take a vacation every now and then.

Address was full of lies, contradictions
ickening. Watching George W. Bush take the podium
Wednesday night can be described as nothing else.
Nevertheless, I stomached the entire State of the Union
address and observedl something I already knew: W can't
go five seconds without contradicting himself or just plain
lying. Here are a few excerpts from his speech:
"We are working with European allies to make clear to
the Iranian regime that it must give up its uranium enrich-
ment program and any plutonium reprocessing."
Reality: England, France and Germany are negotiat-
ing with Iran over these issues. Yet, despite the European.
Union's urgings, the administration is steering clear of these
discussions altogether. If the United States does not step in
as'Bush claims we have, Iran will become a nuclear power.
"We are working closely with governments in Asia to
convince North Korea to abandon its nuclear ambitions."
Again, this is false. The six-party talks involving the
United States, Russia, China, Japan, South Korea and North
Korea are in suspension. Bush has rejected diplomacy in this
instance, saying it would "reward bad behavior." North
Korea resumed reprocessing two years ago and most likely
has built a couple nukes since.
"There are still regimes seeking weapons of mass de-
struction but no longer without attention and without
That's a strange thing to say when we apparently are
ignoring both Iran and North Korea. It's funny Bush was
so concerned about WMDs a couple of years ago, but now
most of our military is committed to the one "Axis of Evil"
country without any.
"America will stand with the allies of freedom to support
democratic movements in the Middle East and beyond, with
the ultimate goal of ending tyranny in our world."
Does this mean W will take action against China and
Saudi Arabia? They aren't exactly "democratic." And what
if the citizens of a tyrannical Middle Eastern government
revolted right now? Would Bush send troops to help out?
"Judges have a duty to ensure all
i citizens' rights."
That is, unless they're homosexual
S ("I support a constitutional amend-
ment to protect the institution of
4 i marriage.")
Andrew Meyer "I will send you a budget that
Uncommon Sense holds the growth of discretionary
email@example.com spending below inflation, makes tax
relief permanent and stays on track to
cut the deficit in half by 2009."
How exactly does Bush plan to make tax relief permanent
and cut the deficit in half at the same time? Aren't those mu-
tually exclusive goals? If the government has less tax money,
what are they supposed to pay down the deficit with?
"I have a message for every American who is 55 or older:
do not let anyone mislead you. For you, the Social Security
system will not change in any way. For younger workers,
the Social Security system has serious problems that will
grow worse with time."
Bush was surprisingly frank here: it seems his plan for
fixing Social Security is to screw the young. Everyone 55
and.up the powerful older voting bloc gets to stay in
the current system, while everybody else gets their benefits
cut. Where Bush is misleading Americans is when he tries
to tie in fixing the system with privatization. Personal ac-
counts have nothing to do with fixing the solvency of Social
Security. They merely are a devious method of reducing the
Social Security system's progressivity. The rich will get to
keep more of their own money than they do now, while the
poor will have to make do with less. The problem for Bush
will come if the people ever realize the benefit cuts neces-
sary for fixing the system would be much smaller without
personal accounts than with them.

Letters to the Editor
Change shouldn't end with North-South
Editor: I noticed they finally put up the
signs where North-South Drive used to be.
I knew the name change was coming since
football season when they announced they
would honor Gale Lemerand, co-founder of
Stonewood Tavern & Grill, who gave some
money to UF. That smacks of ego gratification,
but at least he's not a reputed racist like the
ln.iake I:,f :our basketball arena.
'ie'. mn ca-e y'--u IadIJ't heard, Stephen
C. O'Connell was a racist. He voted against
integration as a state Supreme Court justice
and all but ignored blacks on campus as presi-
dent of UF, arousing ]iLUridrid-d 'f -tudCit.- to
protest his policies by .ta .uqg sit-,,- .uid >-ven
mass withdrawals (see Dan Berger's column,
"O'Connell's Real Legacy is Racism" from the
Nov. 17, 2000 issue of the Alligator).
I propose that, in honor of Black History
Month and in light of our current president's
commitment to diversity, we rename the
O'Connell Center after someone who gave
more'than money to UF and its students
- someone such as Martin Luther King Jr.
or Mary McLeod Bethune, whose lives and
works signify more of what we aspire to be as
a uiu ersity in the 21st century.
Social Security too beneficial to gamble
Editor: As both my parents and grand-
parents retired to Florida, I'd like to relate the
experiences of two generations of my family to
the debate about Social Security.
I've seen firsthand how the Social Security
system as it stands helped my parents and
grandparents retire without fear of poverty.
My father lost a major part of his invest-
ments in mutual funds in the '70s, and then
he watched them dwindle in the '90s before he
was forced to jump that sinking ship again.
One set ofrmy grandparents also lost their
investments'ih the stock market crash of 1929,
and my other grandfather lost a thriving busi-
Sness to the resulting Depression. Each time
the r lia, bE.,-n a stock market "adjustment,"
-ma-i1 L n. I: -t.'r. lost security for their senior
years, but Social Security neither dwindled nor
disappeared. It provided just that: security..
-Now, my brother and I face our retirement
years with President Bush willing to gamble
that part of my security away, despite the his-
tory of regular downturns in the stock market
and the examples of the disasters of similar
privatization plans in Chile and Great Britain.
Before the safety net of Social Security, 50
percent of American seniors lived in poverty
- even during the boom times of the '20s.
Since the enactment of Social Security, only 10
percent live below the poverty line.
Bush may be willing to consign half of
U.S. citizens to financial hardship as they age
in order to boost Wall Street, but those of us
who are aware of the realities of privatization

Financial aid goes digital
Changes made to cut costs
By MEGAN SEERY
Alligator Staff Writer
In an attempt to cut costs
and response times, UF
Student Financial Affairs will
begin contacting all students
receiving financial aid elec-
tronically next week.
"All correspondence will
be sent electronically," said
Ron Anderson, associate di-
rector for Student Financial
Affairs. "Students will be
notified about outstanding fi-
nancial information via their
Hard copies of the first
e-mail, which will detail the
new process; will be sent to
students next week via the
U.S. Postal Service, he said.
All future newsletters will be
The e-mails will direct
students to a financial aid
section on the Integrated
Student Information System,
"We are going to shorten
the response time from fi-
nancial affairs to students,
eliminate the possibility of
lost mail and save monies in
postage," Anderson said.
Incoming freshmen will
receive hard copies of fi-
nancial documents but will
receive only e-mail notices
after their first year.
More than 38,000 students
receive financial assistance,
Students who submit the
Free Application for Federal
Student Aid, or FAFSA, will
be notified electronically
about their award status in
In the past, private e-mail
providers such as America

tered university correspon-
dence their systems errone-
ously reported as junk mail.
"We are going to short-
en the response time
from financial affairs
to students, eliminate
the possibility of lost

associate director for Stu-
dent Financial Affairs
"Students need to keep
their GatorLink addresses
valid," he said, noting stu-
dents should check their
e-mail options if forwarding
university messages to out-
side accounts. "They need to
make sure they check their
accounts on a regular basis."
Biomass use urged
By BRIAN HAGEN
Any new power plant built to
meet Gainesville's future energy
needs should exclusively use
trees, leaves and other locally
available "biomass" materials
instead of imported petroleum
coke and coal, one UF professor
Donald Rockwood spoke to the
Alachua County Environmental
Protection Advisory Committee,
which met to discuss alternatives
to the coke- and coal-burning
plant proposed by Gainesville
Regional Utilities that also
would utilize small portions of
Biomass and city waste could
fuel a 300 megawatt power plant,
he said, citing a case in Orlando.
Orlando put its wastewater,
yard compost and mulch on in-
ferior land. Quick growing trees,
cottonwood and eucalyptus were
planted and reached full-size in
less than three years.
A power plant could be fu-
eled with the 30 tons of wood
per acre per year that the land
"Everyone wins energy
producers, landowners, commu-
nities and the carbon balance,"
said Rockwood, a professor in
the School of Forest Resources
Using biomass would keep
money in the Gainesville area, he
said. Cheaper foreign imports of
paper and other pulpwood prod-
ucts destroyed the value of Florida
pulpwood for tree farmers.

Alleged Sigma Phi Epsilon assault in state's hands
By EVA KIS
Alligator Staff Writer
University Police filed a
sworn complaint with the State
Attorney's Office last week in the
alleged sexual assault of a minor
by a Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity
member last Fall.
"Our role is to see if we
have a prosecutable case," State
Attorney's Office spokesman
Spencer Mann said.
UPD has completed its inves-
tigation into an incident at a sa-
fari-themed party in the Sigma Phi
Epsilon house, 5 Fraternity Row,
on Sept. 25, UPD spokesman Joe
The State Attorney's Office is
reviewing the findings and will
be scheduling sworn testimony
with witnesses, reviewing forensic
evidence and coordinating any
necessary follow-up investigation,
As interviewing begins, Mann
said other names not previously
included as potential witnesses
could come up
and may be
S asked to provide
t s There's
no timeline as
to how long it
Sharkey will take us to
investigation," Mann said, adding
that specific charges, if any, will
not be pursued until his office's
investigation is completed.
The victim, then 17, drank alco-
holic beverages made by her date
as well as several other drinks
during the course of the party, ac-
cording to reports.
She reportedly said she did not
remember what happened when
she woke up naked in her date's
bed with him the following morn-
ing. She filed a complaint after be-
ing treated at Shands at AGH.
The victim rescinded charges
soon thereafter but later asked the
investigation be pursued.
Mann said the severity of pos-
sible charges will not depend on
the victim's age.
"The issue we're dealing with
is sexual battery, which is a pretty
serious charge irregardless,"
Sigma Phi Epsilon has placed
itself on voluntary social proba-
tion since the incident, but Sharkey
said any further action against the
fraternity is at UF's discretion.
Alachua County Judge Jaworski sworn into office
By MEGAN V. WINSLOW
A former defense attorney as
well as state prosecutor, Thomas
M. Jaworski has argued on both
sides of the courtroom.
On Thursday, however,
Jaworski officially took his place
on the bench with the other judg-
es of the Eighth Judicial Circuit as
he was sworn in as an Alachua:
"It's just an honor and a
privilege to serve the citizens of
Alachua County," Jaworski said.
"It is one of the noblest callings,
being a judge, and I'm absolutely
delighted following the ceremo-

As his wife, Amy, and children Thomas and Emily look on, Thomas M. Jaworski is administered the oath
of office for Alachua County Court Judge by Circuit Judge Toby Monaco.
Judge Aymer "Buck" Curtin's
retirement in 2004, Jaworski beat
Gainesville trial attorney Bruce
Smith for the County Judge 5 po-
sition in the Aug. 31 primary.
Smith, a former state attorney
when Jaworski served as a state
prosecutor, congratulated his one-
"I was just so proud of Tom
- he worked so hard to get here
and he has such good qualities
to make him a fine judge," Smith
said following the ceremony. "It's
wonderful for me recently so
many of my former staff- mem-
bers are now judges, and I hope
I treated them well now because,
as a practicing lawyer, I have to
get in front of all these people that
used to work for me."
Jaworski's mother and six
siblings traveled from as far as
Michigan to support him at the
ceremony, which was dedicated-to
his late father, Theodore Thomas
"I always expected great things
from him, I really did for some
reason, and I can't express the
feelings that I have of pride and
joy for all my family to be here,"
Jaworski's mother said.
During his acceptance speech,
Jaworski thanked his wife, Amy,
and children Thomas and Emily
for their dedication and patience
during the campaign.
"I was just really excited that
he got the opportunity to do this
because he's wanted to be a judge
for a really long time," Emily

1987. "His durability over the year
goes back to his desire that he had
and really the type of person he
is. A guy less motivated with his
ability never would have been the
player he was."
Smith played for the Gators dur-
ing the program's transition years.
UF was a nationally recognized
program in the mid-'80s -- shortly.
before Smith's arrival reaching
No. 1 for a week in 1985.
But the program would end
up on probation for NCAA viola-
tions, weakening UF's national

a contract to coach UF

back. His 18,355 rushing yards and
164 rushing touchdowns rank first
all-time in the NFL, while.his 179

most success in the NFL.
"He was not the fastest or big-
gest player, but he had an uncanny

Johnson, although "very shaken up," was not injured in
the incident, Kameg said. At press time, it was not known
whether she is a student at either UF or SFCC.
GPD is investigating the incident but there have been no
charges filed, Kameg said, nor does he have a formal esti-
mate of what any potential charges would be.
Public Northeast 53rd Avenue was closed to traffic
Safety from Main Street to Northeast 15th Street for
approximately three hours.
The number of fatalities in the state of
Florida out of 243,294 traffic crashes during 2003 was 3,179,
according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
Programs such as Click It Or Ticket have been imple-
mented statewide to enforce the mandatory seatbelt law
for drivers and their passengers.
Florida's traffic laws require that all occupants of a ve-
hicle wear seatbelts at all times while the vehicle is in mo-
tion, according to FHP.

Humphrey, who shot 48.4 percent and
averaged 10.8 points per game while starting
our games in Walsh's place, has averaged 4.8
ince Walsh regained his starting spot against
outh Carolina on Saturday.
Donovan, however, believes Walsh's
recent shooting woes have little to do with
uis physical condition and more to do with
gettingg back into the flow of the game.
"I know, as a player, when you're out for
3HAF, from page 20

Getting used to going again," Donovan said.
According to Lee,hat moment may come
soon for Walsh.
"I predict him carrying us in these next
two games to a victory," Lee said.
Whether or not Walsh will reemerge, the
Gators will have a tremendous task trying to
control an Alabama team who trounced MSU
98-49 on Jan. 18.
Junior forward Kennedy Winston, averag-
ing a league-third-best 17.8 points per game,
and senior guard Earnest Shelton, with a
he locker room doors if the Gators come up short on Saturday, the
erm better-win game might be more applicable.
After the Alabama game, five of UF's next seven games prior to
he season finale against Kentucky are on the road. And even in a
town year for the Southeastern Conference, road games in the SEC
ire never a given.
A loss against the Tide could send the Gators into a tailspin an
'vent that might eventually earn them a spot in the (gasp!) NIT. Given
heir recent Tournament track record and the growing swell of sup-
sixth-best 17.4 points, have led the Crimson
Tide (17-3, 6-1 SEC) to an SEC-second-best
78.7 points per game.
"We all saw them kill Mississippi State,"
Humphrey said. "So we're going to have to
take these next two days pretty serious."
And for Lee, getting serious pertains to
not just himself, Walsh or leading scorer
Anthony Roberson, but the entire team.
"We'll take [walk-ons] Jack [Berry] and
Garrett [Tyler] coming off the bench, hav-
ing 20 each anyway we can get a victory
at this point," Lee said. "We're looking to go
6-2. That's the biggest thing right now."
port for an increased amount of mid-major births, combined with the
overall underachievement of the SEC, it's not all that far-fetched.
Now stiffen up that upper lip because here is the good news. A
win on Saturday could be just what the Gators need to get back into
contention in the SEC East.
They are still 5-2 in conference and have yet to play up to their
ability. Donovan surely needs to fix some things in terms of execu-
tion. Matt Walsh needs to prove he did not let his oversized heart cure
his ankle prematurely. And the freshmen need to show that they are
ready for primetime game in and game out. All of which are distinct

Gators seek road win
By DAN TREAT
All athletes have to deal with hostile
crowds. Screaming while an opponent
shoots a free throw or stomping feet dur-
ing a big drive have become traditions of
Imagine, however, having to do back-
flips on a four-inch-wide piece of plastic
and rubber with 8,000 people barking at
This is just one of the many challenges
facing the No. 5 Gators gymnastics team,
which faces No. 7 Georgia tonight.
"It's hard; I'd be lying if I said it
wasn't," Coach Rhonda Faehn said. "The
good thing is that the majority of those in
our lineup have experienced it and been
through it before."
One of those experienced performers
is senior Orley Szmuch, who will be com-
peting in the all-around competition for
the first time since the two teams met at
the Super Six Challenge four weeks ago.
Szmuch has been hampered.by a sur-
gically repaired ankle that has plagued
her for almost a year.
This meet will give UF a chance to
prove it can handle the pressures of the
"I think it's big for our confidence,"
Szmuch said. "If we can go into this meet
and get a good solid score and win, I think
to walk away from that and to go to SECs
and nationals would be a big confidence
boost for us."
Wins on the road against the Bulldogs
have been hard to come by for the Gators.
UF has not defeated Georgia in Athens
since the 1985 NCAA Southeast Regional
The Gators haven't won a dual meet
of any kind against Georgia since 1990,
but they did defeat the Bulldogs at both
the Super Six Challenge and NCAA
Qualifying Meet in 2004.
UF will enter four gymnasts in the all-
around competition for the first time this
season. Breanne King is the only Gator to
be in the all-around every meet this sea-
son, and she will be joined by Katie Rue
and Ashley Reed, who returns after being
held off floor exercise in last week's win
"If we can go into this meet
and get a good solid score and
win, I think to walk away from
that and to go to SECs and
nationals would be a big confi-
dence boost for us."
One performer who is unlikely to
compete this week is Tracey Rai. She
has been suffering from shin splints and
Faehn does not want to cause a stress frac-
ture. The key to the meet, however, will
come from the Gators' ability to battle
the hostile environment that the team has
come to expect in Athens.
"At SECs last year, our last event, we
were on balance beam and Georgia was
on floor," Faehn said. "There were about
8,000 fans that were barking while we
were up on beam.
"You couldn't hear anything. You
could feel the floor vibrating, that's how
loud it was."
While UF's freshmen may have only
had a small taste of road hostility against
LSU three weeks ago, co-captain Erinn
Dooley feels that they'll be ready.
"Eachmeet that we go against an SEC
school, they learn more and more," she
said. "They're ready for whatever comes
their way, and they're getting that experi-

This weekend is all about in-state rival-
ries for the UF men's tennis team, which
will host Miami today and then travel to
Tallahassee for a match against Florida
State on Sunday.
UF has unfinished
business with No. 47
Miami. Last year, the
teams were vying for
the lead when the match
was interrupted by rain
"We almost lost
Mirzadeh to them last year;
we're ready to go. It's
an in-state opponent and we hate the
Hurricanes," Hamid Mirzadeh said.
"We're pumped for it."
Despite Miami's rank, which is much
lower than UF's No. 3 ranking, Coach
Andy Jackson said the Hurricanes are still
a tough team.
"We'll have to bring our 'A' game. Last
year we were ranked much higher, but they
were still winning when the rain came,"
he said. "We've had two good-quality
practices and things are going pretty well,
but we don't know how well because we
haven't really had a sustained number of
matches, which is about to start."
Because last Sunday's Duke match was
called off due to an ice storm, this is the
first weekend in which the Gators will
play two matches.
Sunday's match against the Seminoles
will be the Gators' first on the road. UF has
beaten FSU in their last eight meetings, but
Jackson said he feels FSU is undelranked
and that the match is going to be the most
severe test for the Gators thus far.
"[Florida State] probably is a top-25
team and they're only ranked 40," he said.
"So they've got a chip on their shoulder
and we've got something they want."

GATORS FACE HIGHEST-

UF a 75-73 overtime win against
Alabama in the 2004 Southeastern
"Oh, that's probably the best
Single play of my career so far
- high school, any level," said
Humphrey with a humble grin.
The shot earned Humphrey,
who contemplated redshirting his
freshman season, celebrity status
and jump-started the Gators to
their first SEC Tournament cham-
pionship game since 1994.
Now, the Gators hope they,

Following a loss to Mississippi
State and with the attention of
many influential members of the
sports media just to the north in
Jacksonville, UF will attempt to
garner some national attention
in the second of a tough three-
game stretch that concludes at
Kentucky on Tuesday..
"It's one of those things you
can't wdrry about while you're
playing," said senior forward
David Lee. "But as you look
back, I'm sure these are the games
people will be watching. And
Alabama is another Tournament-
quality team, like we are."
The SEC's top-scoring Gators
were held to a season-low 57
points, while shooting a season-
worst 38.5 percent in the loss to
the Bulldogs, as UF again ap-
peared to be adjusting to the rein-
tegration of guard Matt Walsh.
Walsh was 1 for 5 against
MSU, as his team suffered a 9 for
29 second-half shooting slump.
While Coach Billy Donovan
cautioned that Walsh wouldn't
immediately become his former
self following a three-week hiatus
due to a severe ankle sprain, the
junior has shot 25.9 percent since

Win could turn the tide
After getting thumped at
The Hump, the UF bas-
ketball team returns to
the O'Dome on Saturday with a
bruised ego and that familiar air
of skepticism filling its lungs.
Say what you" want about
statement games and how impor-
tant they are in the marathon that
is a college basketball season, but
Tuesday night against Mississippi
State was an opportunity lost.
Luckily for the Gators,
Saturday's game against Alabama
presents another chance to prove
to the conference that they are
more than just paper champions.
Defeating a team that dismantled
Mississippi State by 49 points
earlier this season would go a
long way in proving that Tuesday
night was nothing more than a
bump in the road an aberra-
tion and not a trend.
