Gators roll over Tide


By BRYAN APP
Alligator Staff Writer

The elated screams of the
season-high O'Connell Center
crowd rained down on the
Gators, skipping to the locker
room with their index fingers
pointed toward the sky.
And like a shaken victim.
of a head-on collision with a
semi, the despondent visiting
Alabama team stumbled off the
court, likely wondering what
they iust had experienced.


Seconds earlier, junior guard
Matt Walsh drained a buzzer-
beating three-pointer to cap a
17-3 half-ending UF run. The
scoring surge ended a whirl-
wind opening-period domi-
nation of the No. 11 Crimson
Tide (17-4, 6-2 Southeastern
Conference) en route to an 85-54

Effectively burying the Tide
before they ever started rolling,
the first half also featured a 20-
3 Gators run and each of UF's
Men's Basketball Big Three
Alabama 54 guards
Walsh and
UF 85 Anthony
Roberson
and for-
ward David Lee scoring in
double-digits.
In all, four Gators finished
with double-digits in scoring,
as Roberson, Walsh and Lee
tied with a game-high 18, and
freshman Al Horford matched a
career-high with 14 and earned
his second double-double of the
season with 18 rebounds.
The Gators (14-5, 6-2 SEC)
are now 13-0 when scoring at
least 80 and 7-1 when each of
the-Big Three score more than
10.
"They had four or five
guys that were pivotal," said
Alabama junior forward
Kennedy Winston. "When you
have those kinds of games, it's
awfully impossible to win."
Winston, who came into the
game with a second-best 19.1
points per game in league play
behind Roberson's 22.1 aver-

Conversely, Walsh, who en-

out of his slump with a 6-for-12,
seven-assist and no-turnover
performance.
"I wasn't going to stop
shooting," Walsh said. "It
wasn't even my shooting. I just
haven't felt like my game was
all there."
Donovan said the coach-
ing staff has been trying to get

Snoop Dogg raps in a concert at the Stephen C. O'Connell Center
on Friday night. He entertained a crowd of about 4,600.


Snoop plays O'Dome

ekis@alligator.org

Fans attending Friday's con-
cert at the Stephen C. O'Connell
Center had to wait an extra hour
for their top Dogg tg drop in.
Dressed in a characteristic fur
coat, cream shirt and silver tie,
Snoop appeared in an exclusive
interview on CNN's "Larry King
Live" before Friday's concert to
address a former makeup artist's
claims that he and four others sex-
ually assaulted her after a taping
of the ABC show "Jimmy Kimmel
Live" two years ago.
"It was his chance to respond to
the allegations being made against
him," said Renee Musson, busi-
ness manager of the O'Connell
Center, where the interview was
broadcast live via satellite.
Jeff Yeatman, chairman of
Student Government Productions,
the organization that helped bring
Snoop Dogg to UF, said he did not
know about the suit until he was
approached Friday afternoon by
representatives of Snoop Dogg.

National media outlets carried
reports of the woman's allegation
Jan. 31.
"They came to us and asked us
if we could make arrangements,"
Yeatman said.

Allocating a room for the inter-
view and "some of the technical
aspects" were the only accommo-
dations made by SGP for the in-
terview, Yeatman said, noting that
costs of the live satellite feed were
not footed by his organization.
Elda Auxiliaire, executive
director of Black History Month,
said she was unaware of the al-
legations until she heard about
the arrangements from Yeatman
on Friday.

MULTICULTURAL

More than 500 attend Chinese New Year events


By LINDSAY TAULBEE
Alligator Writer
Itaulbee@alligator.org

Waggling their tails and batting their eye-
lashes flirtatiously at the audience, four lions
danced to the beat of Chinese cymbals and
drums Saturday night.
The colorful and intricately decorated lion
costumes, each manned by two members of
Wah Lum Kung Fu of Gainesville, followed
the lead of a laughing Buddha figure, a
masked man wielding a red fan, teasing them
across the stage and through the aisles of the
Reitz Union Grand Ballroom.
The lion dance, meant to symbolize the
repelling of evil demons, was the first of sev-
eral presentations at the Chinese American
Student Association's annual Chinese New
Year celebration.
A diverse crowd of more than 500 attend-
ees, young and old, watched the performances
that fused both modem and traditional ele-
ments.
"It's not only a celebration of the year,
but a celebration of culture in general," the
organization's special events coordinator
Wand Gan said.
Students sang and danced to modem
Chinese and American songs, as well as to
traditional Chinese music.


A kung fu demonstration by UF's Kung
Fu Club, a skit by members of the Asian
American Greek Interest Group and a fashion
show rounded out the evening.
June Wong, also a special events coor-
dinator for the Chinese American Student
Association, said she felt there had been a good
balance between the traditions associated with
the New Year and modem entertainment.
"Most of us are American-born Chinese,"
she said. She added that she had hoped "to
show that we still remember our culture."
UF improve comedy group Theatre Strike
Force also performed, drawing laughs as one
performer poked fun at former UF football
coach Ron Zook.
The celebration also featured two per-
formances by musicians playing traditional
Chinese stringed-instruments: the ehru and
the pipa.
"We were really lucky to find them," Gan
said.
Jin Xia, 26, who came to Gainesville from
China less than a month ago, played the pipa,
a -four-stringed instrument that looks similar
to a mandolin and rests in the player's lap.
Members of the audience were impressed
with Xia's agile and precise playing of the
song "Go to the Flower Festival."
"I really hope that more people can under-

9, marking the beginning of the Year of the

STUDENT GOVERNMENT


Party to unleash 'independent' voice with platform


By BRIDGET CAREY
Alligator Writer
bcarey@alligator.org

After listening to the concerns of three
student focus groups, the Voice Party will
unveil its campaign platform this week,
highlighting a need to help graduate stu-
dents who party members say continually
get the shaft from Student Government.'
The Voice Party, whose members call
themselves "the party of independents,"
will officially release its platform for the
Spring election Tuesday at 2 p.m. on the
Reitz Union Colonnade.
It is also expected that the party will an-
nounce Sen. Justii Lauer, an independent
senator from the College of Engineering,
as this year's candidate for Student Body
treasurer.
Party chairman Sen. Christian Duque
said there are no plans to run a Student
Body presidential or vice presidential
candidate under the Voice Party, but .the
party will be campaigning to fill seats in
the Student Senate.
"We just might lose, it's a big possibil-
ity," said Duque, who said the party will
probably not garner much Greek support.


"But if we really let everyone on that really
wants to be in Student Government, then
we won't lose."
After three focus-group meetings held
last week, Voice members say they will
put a stop to an SG ruled by Greek and
Florida Blue Key connections, and will
aspire to give entry to the most qualified
applicants.
"If you're not Greek, the doors (to SG)
close for you," said Duque, a fraternity
member himself, who won his Senate seat
with the Access Party last Spring.
One goal Voice members were vocal
about at each focus group is to make SG
more supportive to graduate students and
family-housing communities.
"Offering them a few new swing sets
just isn't enough," Duque said of the
recent SG spending to improve on-site
playgrounds within UF's family-housing
communities.
Voice leaders said they plan to help
graduate students have their own parking
decals, which is one part of making gradu-
ates' voices heard as loudly as the under-
graduates'.
And considering the importance UF's
administration places on research, Duque


says it surprises him that SG doesn't do
more to cater to the graduate-student com-
munity.
"There's not much research going on at
the undergraduate level," he said.
But it's not just graduate students who
aren't best represented, Duque said.

"If you're not Greek, the doors (to
SG) close for you."
Christian Duque
Voice Party chairman


He said that through his Senate experi-
ence, he sees many senators are not put-
ting forth their best efforts to really talk to
students to see what they want.
"Quit saying you represent them if you
don't know who the hell they are," Duque
said.
An average of 10 students attended
each of the three meetings.
They brought up their concerns about
poor funding for campus organizations
and programs, which included dissatis-
faction with how much money was spent


on the Chomp the Vote
drive.


voter-registration


Also discussed was the quality of
Regional Transit System buses and the
creation of 24-hour study centers.
Discussions revolved around those topics,
and also centered on Lauer's and Duque's
Senate experience.
"After a month of being in Senate, I felt
like I wanted to jump in front of a train,"
Duque said.
He said his frustrations with the body
were one of the main factors fueling his
goals to campaign for change in SG.
SAnother topic discussed was the cre-
ation of a fairer way to distribute money
to student organizations. According to
party leaders, some student groups re-
ceive a greater amount of money than they
should.
Duque said the University Gospel
Choir was one such group. The choir got
about $40,000 in funding, compared to the
larger Hispanic Student Association which
received about $50,000.
Duque said the University Gospel
Choir received the Senate-approved fund-
ing because Student Body President Jamal
Sowell is a member.
"A lot has to do with politics and who
you know," Duque said.


Santa Fe students aid relief


* AN AUCTION FOR TSU-
NAMI VICTIMS RAISED
MORE THAN $2,300.

By MEGAN V. WINSLOW

mwinslow@alligator.org

Bracing cool temperatures
amplified-by a windy breeze-
way, SFCC students and fac-
ulty manned collapsible tables
Friday in an effort to support
victims of the Dec. 26 tsunami.
Sponsored by the SFCC
Student Government and a
group of students under the
guidance of professor Deborah
Simon, the silent auction and
sale raised $2,312 for the cause.


Among the goodies up for
grabs were gift certificates for
restaurants such as David's BBQ,
The Melting Pot, Newberry's
Backyard BBQ and Hops.
Simon also donated a mosaic
coffee table she built as well as
pieces of antique jewelry.
"I have a house, and those
people don't, so I decided to
give what I could to help them,"
Simon said.
"We're just a group of stu-
dents trying to make a differ-
ence," she said.
Simon, who has been on the
faculty at SFCC for 27 years,
said she first came up with the
idea in class. Her microbiology
and chemistry students helped
organize the event.


Many SFCC students and
faculty helped donate items for
the garage-sale portion of the
fund-raiser.
"I just think it's a great thing
- a great cause," said student
Erica Maguire.
All proceeds are to be do-
nated to CARE International, a
private humanitarian organiza-
tion providing relief for tsunami
victims..
Simon said she plans to mail
the check Thursday.
Until that time, however,
Simon said she encourages
those who wish to contribute to
contact SFCC at 395-5000.
'"I'd like to challenge, any-
body in town to match our
funds," she said.

With differing perspectives and, opinions, a
doctor and five professors came together Friday
to voice their views on issues such as identity, suc-
cess and racial inequality.
The forum, entitled "Black (Inter)Nationalism,
Civil Rights, and the Illusion of Equality,"
was hosted by the Black Graduate Student
Organization as part of Black History Month.
Angelique Nixon, BGSO's Black History
Month chairwoman, said the forum was a re-
minder to honor the past while moving forward.
"We have to contextualize the issues that face
us," she said.
The six black panelists each holding the
highest possible degree in their respective fields
- began by debating the definition of black na-
tionalism and the concept of identity.
Black.nationalism, a political and social move-
ment in the 1960s and 70s, sought to gain eco-
nomic power for blacks and promote a separate
iclertity,,aid, Terry.MiJll, an associate professor of
sociology and the panel's moderator.


Another theme touched on disparities that ex-
ist in education, healthcare and crime.
"If there's anything that unites us as a black
people, it's our. experience of incarceration and
oppressive policing," assistant English professor
Amy Ongiri said.

Later, law professor Kenneth Nunn compared
blacks in the United States to a homeless person
living in someone else's house. They may have a
place to stay, but no say in the furniture, he said.
Blacks need to find their own home, he said.
Assistant professor of African-American
Studies Stephanie Evans later asked how many in
the. audience knew the names of the people who
clean up after them on campus.
"You have to find your home, but you also
have td'put that home into practice," she said.

Media offer

reality, not

safe image
Y ou do not have a constitutional
right not to be offended.
Deal with it.
The media is going to present in-
formation that makes some uncom-
fortable, but that's how it has to be:
the world is an uncomfortable place.
Everything isn't as shiny and pleas-
ant as some would like to pretend.
Now, there are some things that
are not appropriate to be presented
in easily-accessible media. Had Janet
Jackson's "wardrobe malfunction"
been intentional, it would have been
over the line. Explicit sex or nudity
on network or basic cable TV would
be over the line.
Howard Stern occasionally takes
week-long vacations over the line.
But to say commercials and
broadcasts that merely mention
these things .are offensive is ri-
diculous. Ideas such as this, backed
up by 'Federal Communications
Commission fines and regulations,
are leading American society to a
dangerous position in which it is bet-
ter to produce bland content rather
than risk punitive censorship.
After the last year's Super Bowl,
the Parents Television Council pres-
sured the FCC to revoke CBS stations'
broadcasting licenses. How could the
media operate if even accidental of-
fensive content was to be so harshly .
punished?
It's time for these thin-skinned cit-
izens to grow up. Adults worry about
what they can do to make the world a
better place, rather than trying to get
the media to say that it is.

Editorial


Super censored

Dropped advertisements

show a dangerous trend
T hat was the most boring Super Bowl ever.
No, not the game: the commercials.
Instead of the risk-taking humor expected from the
world's most ostentatious spectacle of advertising; the theme
of the day was "play it safe."
But it didn't have to be that way. A number of companies
had planned funny and admittedly raunchy ads that
would have ranked among the best shown at the yearly
event.
These companies self-censored the commercials, however,
fearing the oppressive might of the Federal Communications
Commission: After Janet Jackson's "wardrobe malfunction" at
last year's Super Bowl, the FCC has gone on a crusade against
any media that has even the possibility of offending anyone.
At the center of the controversy at this year's Super
Bowl was a commercial for Bud Light, which played off of
Jackson's revealing moment. In a light-hearted lampoon, the
spot offered a possible explanation of the event that showed a
stagehand damaging the garment by using it to open a bottle
of Bud Light. -
Anheuser-Busch pulled the ad in fear of possible repercus-
sions from the FCC. It may have been right: The prevailing be-
lief among the FCC and sympathetic groups seems to be that
even referring to something offensive can be offensive.
This is in blatant disregard, of course, of the fact that the
news media prominently featured the "wardrobe malfunc-
tion" and its ensuing controversy for weeks afterward. If it
wants to be fair, the FCC should fine every single publication
and broadcast that dared mention such an offensive occur-
rence.
Another sad example was Ford's pulling of an ad for its
Lincoln Mark LT luxury truck, easily one of the funniest ads
created for this year's event. The ad depicted a priest gaz-
ing lovingly at a Mark LT, causing him to put "Lust" on the
church's outdoor sign as the subject for the upcoming sermon.
This offended members of the group Survivors Network of
those Abused by Priests, who felt the ad exploits church sex
scandals and "offends females who have been molested."
Admittedly, there is a thin line between humorous social
commentary and unduly taking advantage of an unfortunate
situation, but this does not even approach it. Furthermore,
they did not say why it only was molested females and not
males who were supposedly offended.
The fact is, however, that not many people really care. The
indignant outburst to this "offensive" content comes only
from an extreme Tinority of the American public.
FOX's record $1.2-million fine for references to sex on its
show "Married by America," ostensibly was based on the
strength of 159 complaints already a relatively low number.
But there weren't 159 complaints.
Blogger Jeff Jarvis of www.buzzmachine.com revealed, af-
ter filing a Freedom of Information Act request to see the com-
plaints, that only three of them were unique. The remaining
were copies of those three complaints, which were either sent
to multiple FCC employees by the original authors or turned
in by others who switched the author's name with their own.
If the outcry from three concerned citizens, out of the mil-
lions who watched the show, decides the definition of inap-
propriate contention the country, there is a problem.
The morals of this nation should reflect the morals of the
people in this nation, not those of a backward-thinking minor-
ity.
Besides, if the commercials during the Super Bowl aren't
funry, what do we have?

Letters to the Editor
Naming practice honors merit, not personal beliefs
Editor: I am writing in response to the bizarre article
composed by Drew Melville in Friday's Alligator. First
off, when donors bequeath a vast sum of money onto
an academic institution, the receiving body usually
honors them by (re)naming a building, sports ground
or, in this case, a road. It seems to me Gale Lemerand
and our university completed this process much-to
their mutual satisfaction.
Second, spouting off about O'Connell's legacy and
its relation to the naming of an on-campus structure is
ludicrous. Should we also change the name of the Reitz
Union because J. Wayne Reitz witch-hunted commu-
nists and despised homosexuals? Although these two
men probably were not the best people in the world,
these structures have their names imprinted primarily
for meritorious service provided by the pair to UF.
Finally, renaming a building after Mary McLeod
Bethune, whose legacy includes an entire college, or
Martin Luther King Jr., who plagiarized substantial
portions of his dissertation probably not a good role
model for an academic institution on the pretext of
Black History Month and President Machen's "com-
mitment to diversity" baffles me. I see.no reason to
deviate from a system that has been in place more than
a sesquicentennial at UF and replace it with one that
assigns, arbitrarily, names to our esteemed buildings
on campus.

Conservatives rally against cartoons


On the day of Bush's inauguration, the papers were
full of sobering news the prospect of election-
day violence in Iraq, the rising death toll in the
Middle East and the 60th anniversary of the liberation of
Auschwitz but when James Dobson of Focus On the
Family woke up that morning, he saw a more ominous
enemy on the horizon: SpongeBob SquarePants. Dobson
says SpongeBob moonlighted as the star of a video .that
promoted a "pro-homosexual agenda." More recently,
.right-wingers have created a furor over two women in
Vermont who apparently like each other too much. Forget
the war in Iraq; we're in the middle of the cartoon wars.
Last week, Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings
urged PBS to pull an episode of "Postcards from Buster,"
a children's show meant to promote diversity, because
the titular bunny visited the.daughter of a lesbian couple.
She says parents don't want to "introduce this kind of
subject matter" to their kids. Even though the episode
focuses on Buster's trip to a dairy farm and the parents of
the child are only a backdrop, PBS pulled the episode the
same day of the outburst, taking into consideration that
the Department of Education provides 63 percent of the
show's budget. It seems Spellings' aim is to guarantee that
homophobia is free to operate, and the best way to do that
is to prevent children from seeing gays as part of their com-
munity. Spellings plainly is following her boss' mandate: It

Speaking Out class status again when he said,
"Studies have shown that the ideal
is where a child is raised in a married family with a man
and a woman."
Studies have shown thdre is no difference in the wellbe-
ing of children of gay couples and children of heterosexual
couples. In fact, according to a 2001 UCLA study, daughters
of gay couples are not as intimidated as girls from straight
couples in co-ed activities and the workplace, and boys of
gay couples tend to be more nurturing than boys from het-
erosexual homes. I suppose conservatives must be quiver-
ing at the specter of gay characters in children's television.
But as episodes of "Finger me Elmo" and "You're a Gay
Dad, Charlie Brown" have yet to be made, conservatives
seem to have forgotten the child caught inthe crossfire.
It's important for children to see their own lives reflect-
ed on television so that they can feel part of a community,
but by removing the episode, Spellings has committed a
sort of stereotyping by omission. Children like the one fea-
tured on the episode have no role models on TV.
Although gay characters are welcome on primetime,
they apparently have no place in Mr. Rogers' neighbor-
hood.

ELECTIONS 2005

Candidate registration to close


By DAVID COHEN
Alligator Writer
dcohen@alligator.org

Those interested in run-
ning for select Gainesville City
Commission seats must sort their
political ambitions this week. -
Qualification for Districts 2
and 3 seats, as well as the com-
missioner at-large seat, begins
at noon Monday and ends noon
Friday, when paperwork is due to
the Alachua County Supervisor
of Elections Office, 12 SE First St.
So far, three candidates filed
paperwork to run for the at-large
position; two candidates filed for
District 2, largely the area north
and northwest of the UF campus;
and three filed for District 3,
which is the area west and south-
west of UF.
"I want Gainesville to be a
good city where families can
raise their children," District 2


incumbent Ed Braddy said.
Braddy described himself as a
"decisive leader" and said he is in
favor of improving Gainesville's
r. ` :. L business envi-
ronment.
" 4 On the other
side of the
District 2 con-
test is Grant
_. Thrall, -who has
had a 22-year
Braddy
y career as a pro-
fessor in UF's geography depart-
ment, specializing in business
location.
"On my side, we have a lot of
help from groups on the UF cam-
pus," Thrall said.
This list of supporters in-
cludes UF Student Government
Vice President Jennifer Puckett,
who is assisting Thrall's fund-
raising efforts.
"If elected, I will be the third
or fourth UF faculty member that


was on the City Commission,"
Thrall said. "I am at a point in my
career where I want to help the
community."
Thrall called the district seat
"an appropriate next step" for
his life.
He said he believes citizens
can benefit from his business
sense, which has brought 3,000
jobs to Gainesville with the im-
pending University Corners, a
development which will house
both -residential and commercial
space at the corner of University
Avenue and Northwest 13th
Street.
Any at-large candidate needs
to be a qualified voter living
anywhere within Gainesville for
more than six months and would
oversee, the entire city.
District seats are limited to
those who have lived within their
specific region of responsibility
for more than six months.


Fraternity's efforts


spruce up campus
By LINDSAY TAULBEE
Alligator Writer
Itaulbee@alligator.org

In an attempt to spruce up the UF campus and bring their
service efforts a little closer to home, members of one fraternity
spent their Saturday with shovels in hand.
About 40 Sigma Pi fraternity- members planted ap-
proximately 100 trees around a reservoir behind the Florida
Museum of Natural History.
'It's just a cool way of showing that we care about where we
go to school," member Chris Ferrante said.
The young trees include dogwood, black gum,
Greek bald cypress and water pine trees, said Unay
Life Cruz, chairman of the Sigma Pi program Altruistic
Campus Experience Project.
The tree-planting project was completed as part of ACEP,
through which Sigma Pi hopes it can work toward fulfilling
campus needs, Ferrante said.
He also said any student group is welcome to participate.
"It's just trying to refocus the service side of the organiza-
tions back to campus," he said.
The group had approached UF's Physical Plant Division to
see how it could help and chose from among several projects.

Man deploys extinguisher


Despite the fact that nei-
ther smoke nor flames were
anywhere in sight, a trig-
ger-happy local man took it
upon himself to set off a fire
extinguisher early Sunday
morning within a UF frater-
nity house, University Police
reported.
Jason Michael Applebaum,
19, admitted to discharg-
ing the extinguisher inside
the Tau Epsilon Phi frater-
nity house, at Nine Fraternity
Row, because he was drunk
and just "fooling around,"
UPD reported.
Applebaum, of 1716 NW
Third Ave., has been charged
with preventing or obstruct-
ing the extinguishment of a
fire, a felony, police reported.
Although members of the
fraternity would not com-


ment on the incident, Tau
Epsilon Phi President Jordan
Hammer said he does not
believe the defendant is a
member of the fraternity.

WAFFLE HOUSE CUSTOMER
ARRESTED: Impatient with
the service at a local Waffle
House, a woman reportedly
threw sugar on another patron
who defended restaurant staff,
Gainesville Police reported.
GPD. charged 26-year-old
Shanate Gerraine Cook, of
627 SW 69th St., in simple
assault and disorderly con-
duct in an establishment,
both misdemeanors, after the
incident Friday morning, ac-
cording to reports.
Cook, police said, cursed
and yelled at workers for
not preparing her food in a


timely manner at the Waffle
House located at 2120 NW
13th Ave.
Michelle Renee Johnson,
a restaurant patron, verbally
defended the staff before she
attempted to flee the estab-
lishment and the 7-inch-tall
sugar shaker that Cook threw
at her, according to police re-
ports.
Cook, who was released
from the Alachua County Jail
on Friday, denied the charges
in a phone interview Sunday
night.
"I was treated unfairly,"
she said. "Three girls tried to
jump me, kill me, and I'm the
only one going to jail. And I
don't think it's fair that GPD
did me like that."

Donovan said that Walsh

"I'm going to shave it," Walsh
joked. "Maybe I'll have 36 next

After missing on his first three

Sparser crowd than expected watches Snoop invite female students onto stage


SNOOP, from page 1


learn of charges that the makeup
artist was drugged with spiked
champagne before being raped by
him and four others.
Snoop Dogg said that although
the woman had applied his makeup
prior to the Jan. 31, 2003 episode, he
left directly afterward and took off
the makeup himself at home.
"Rape is not in my nature," he
said on CNN. "I don't get down
like that."
Snoop Dogg said he does not
appear in any of the police reports
under either his stage name or his
given name, Calvin Broadus, and
told King he felt it was "straight ex-
tortion" because the alleged victim
has taken settlement money from


The Walt Disney Company until
recently and filed the matter in civil,
not criminal court.
"I got a lot of money, true and
deep, but I'm not gonna give it to
you for something I didn't do,"
Snoop Dogg said.
A source close to the Alligator
was one of several women chosen
from the audience during Friday's
performance to join Snoop Dogg
onstage for "Beautiful" and "Drop It
Like It's Hot," his newest single.
As the women left the stage after
the song ended, Snoop said they
would receive "seven backstage
passes for seven backstage asses."
However, the situation was not
as she said she thought it would be


when they arrived in Snoop Dogg's
dressing room.
"I thought there was going to be
alcohol laying everywhere there
wasn't," she said, though she did
notice a "couple of bottles" of two
different kinds of beer.
She said they were not offered
the alcohol. "They offered us water,"
she said.
Yeatman said SGP did not pur-
chase alcohol for Snoop Dogg or his
entourage despite provisions in the
rapper's rider. Under Florida law, itis
illegal to use Activity & Service fees,
which fund SGP, to buy alcohol.
"But what he had otherwise is
out of our control," Yeatman added.
Snoop Dogg asked about the
girls' majors and teased some of
the girls who partook of the cater-
ing table about college students not


turning down a free meal, she said.
"He gave us hugs. We took pic-
tures," she said, adding that nothing
happened between members of his
party and the women escorted back-
stage and that they all left together.
Yeatman said there was never
any concern about female employ-
ees working that night, several of
them college-aged.
"They treated the staff with the
utmost respect," Yeatman said of
Snoop Dogg and his crew.
Despite the last-minute contro-
versy and delay during which
a previously unslated opening act
performed to accommodate the
schedule, according to O'Dome
staff the fans who turned out
stayed rowdy through the hour-
long set.

there was no additional staff hired
compared to other concerts.

Super Bowl festivities enjoyed by viewers worldwide


Gainesville's homeless and hungry
football fans filled the First United
Methodist Church on Sunday night for
their own Super Bowl party.
A projection television at the church,
419 NE First St., broadcast the game to
more than 100 guests. Nachos began
the evening, and attendees filled tables
and a long row of couches near the
television.
"We got the barbecue pigs," Senior
Pastor Earl Parker announced. "Don't
make up too much of a line there's
enough for everyone."
Church member Randy Stacey took
the microphone and blessed the meal.
Volunteers served barbecued pork


donated by Sonny's Real Pit Bar-B-Q,
along with beans, cole slaw and Texas
toast.
"Gainesville's in the Top 10 for
meanness to the homeless," Stacey
said, referring to the National Coalition
for the Homeless' annual 20 Meanest
Cities list released last year. "The idea
is to start treating everyone as a human
being."
Stacey is part of the Helping Hands
Clinic, which will begin providing
medical care this week at the church
from 5 to 7 p.m. every Monday night.
The clinic moved from its former home
at the Salvation Army last week, Stacey
said.
About a third of the diners cheered
for their team as the game proceeded,
but most concentrated on their meals.
"It's a blessing, this night," said

David Bricker, who came from his tent
in the woods to attend the meal.
His bicycle held hand-made signs
that read, "Jesus loves me & you."
"God is wonderful," Bricker said.
"God's got me in the wilderness to keep
me off of the crack cocaine."
Pastor Parker's personal interest in
the homeless has fueled his organiza-
tion of the Super Bowl party for the last
three years.
"I've had homeless people in my
family," Parker said. "I understand it."
Parker is part of the Homeless
Banquet Ministry, which plans to serve
a spring banquet complete with table-
cloths, candles and table service. They
also plan to host banquets July 4 and in
the fall.
"We're not a country club church,"
he said. "We're going to reach people's
needs where they are."
Parker interrupted the Super Bowl
regularly to take a microphone and
announce door-prize winners. Guests
won jackets, sweatshirts, sleeping bags
and tents, and every one of the first 100
guests received a JanSport backpack
obtained by youth coordinator Will
Vinson.
Vinson, 18, began serving at church
Super Bowl banquets when they began
five years ago.
His phone call convinced the com-
pany JanSport to donate the backpacks.
Church volunteers filled the backpacks
with fruit and pudding cups, shampoo,
deodorant and more.
Slices of cake and coffee and bever-
ages of tea and lemonade ended the
meal. Al, a diner who declined to give
his last name, took a break from singing
along to Paul McCartney's "Hey Jude"
during the half-time show to say he has
been coming to the church's Super Bowl
banquet from the beginning.
"I love it," Al said. "All the people
are nice. But Philly's got to play to win
this one."

GYMNASTICS

Gators bust Athens hex


By DAN TREAT
SAlligator Writer
dtreat@alligator.org

The year was 1985.
Zonald Reagan was in
he White House, "Out
)f Africa" won the Best
?ictuvE Oscar and "We Are
Fhe World" topped the mu-
;ical charts.
It was also the last time
:he No. 5 Gators gymnastics
:eam won a meet in Athens,
:a.
That all changed Friday
might.
UF fended off a late
charge by No. 7 Georgia
mnd overcame two falls on
balance beam to defeat the
Bulldogs 195.725-195.60.
"Historically speaking,
it's tremendous," Coach
Rhonda Faehn said. "It's a
big boost to their confidence
as far as doing something
to that magnitude after so
many years of losing to
Georgia."
The Gators (7-2, 2-1
Southeastern Conference)
held a commanding 1.175-
point lead heading into the
final rotation but struggled
on the balance beam, an


event on which they are
ranked No. 4 in the nation.
UF had two falls, but
Samantha Lutz scored a
9.75 as the Gators' final per-
former to seal the win.

"I would have loved
to walk away from the
competition not only
winning but winning
by a good point, which
is what we should
have done."
Rhonda Faehn
UF gymnastics coach


"I honestly didn't even
know our team score until
the very end," Faehn said.
"I look at the here and
now and at that point I was
disappointed with the mis-
takes we had made.
"I would have loved to
walk away from the compe-
tition not only winning but
winning by a good point,
which is what we should
have done."
UF was able to jump out
to such a large lead because
of Georgia's struggles on
uneven bars.


The Bulldogs (8-1, 3-1
SEC) had two falls on the
apparatus, and they were
forced to count a score of
8.275 to the team total.
Georgia's struggles on
bars were counteracted by
an impressive Gators per-
formance.
UF's 49.075 was their
second highest score on the
event this season.
Freshman Ashley Reed
scored her first collegiate
event title on bars, garner-
ing a 9.90 on her routine.
"It was nice to see the
improvement there," Faehn
said. "Everyone did a really
nice job; Ashley did a phe-
nomenal routine and stuck
her dismount."
Despite the landmark
win for her program, Faehn
evoked a familiar refrain
after the meet.
"Obviously it's still fresh
in their minds that they
made mistakes," she said.
"They made some crucial
mistakes that we don't want
to see happen under the
next serious pressure situa-
tion, and that's going to be
the focus this week in the
gym."


UF hurdles winless fall


By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Writer

The wait is over for the UF men's golf
team. After going winless in the fall, UF
repeated the success as team champi-
ons in the Gator Invitational, shooting a
combined 858 to defeat Wake Forest by
eight shots and Florida State by 10. The
Gators totaled a tournament-low team
score of 280 on Sunday to overtake
second-round leader Wake Forest and
surpass Alabama at Birmingham, who
tied UF after twd rounds.
"[The UF golfers] were awesome
down the stretch," Coach Buddy
Alexander said. "It was just good to
play well here, get this win, put the fall
behind us and move into the spring."
Brett Stegmaier led the Gators with
a three-round score of 211 (+1), placing
him in a tie for second, two shots be-
hind the tournament individual cham-
pion, Florida State golfer Jonas Blixt.
After two rounds, Stegmaier stood in
a first-place tie with Louisiana State
golfer Heath West.
"I made a few dumb mistakes [on
Sunday]," Stegmaier said. "I thought I
gave the tournament away, but I'll take
second. It's a good start."
Ryan Cochran and Richard Treis
paced the Gators with third-round
scores of 68 and 69, respectively, at
the UF Golf Course. Cochran steadily
improved throughout the two days,


despite receiving individual disquali-
fication because of the opening round.
The junior shot-an 11-over-par 81 but
actually signed for an 80.
"When you're driving well and
you're putting well, it's kind of hard
to play bad, and those were two things
that I was doing pretty good [Sunday],"
Cochran said. "I thought I was playing
decent [Saturday], just everything was
going wrong. I thought I had it in me to
come out here and do this today."
Treis birdied
three of the fi-
nal five- holes on
Sunday, redeem-
ing himself after
recording five
bogeys during the
same stretch a day
Alexander earlier. The North
Carolina transfer
finished by sinking an-18-foot birdie
putt on the 18th hole.
James Vargas carded his first top-
10 finish of the season, a tie for ninth
after shooting 214. Treis improved
seven shots from a second round 76,
finishing in a tie for 14th.
UF redshirt freshman Manuel
Villegas, playing as an individual, shot
rounds of 77, 71 and 73 to finish in a tie
for 27th.
Matt Every rounded out the Gators
team scor6.-finishing at 12-over-par and
tied for 34th place.

Alabama puts


UF in dire seat

E COACH SAYS THE GATORS WILL HAVE TO
WIN NEXT FIVE GAMES FOR POSTSEASON.

By MICHAEL MAURINO
Alligator Writer
mmaurinq@alligator.org.

Following an overtime loss to No. 5 Tennessee
Thursday, the UF women's basketball team looked
almost like a different team Sunday.
Shooting just under 30 percent, the Gators lost to
Alabama 77-66.
Perhaps feeling an emo-
tional let down after their Women's Basketball
inspired play Thursday, UF 66
the Gators (12-10, 3-6 Alabama 77
Southeastern Conference)
looked sluggish, aside for
the last 10 minutes of the second half.
Peck said her team's focus was "very different"
from the Tennessee game and said. that the team
thought with their great play versus the Vols
- they would handle Alabama.
"We didn't handle the success [of Thursday], if
you can call it that, very well," Peck said. "We came.
in with not much respect, but Alabama was a much
better team and took advantage of that."
The Gators started a rally toward the end of the
second half, but by that point, Alabama (13-8, 4-4 SEC)
had stretched its lead to 25 points. Peck said the team
did not quit, but she was disappointed that UF had
fallen behind by so much before it started a rally.
UF trimmed the deficit to 9 points at the 1 minute,
16 seconds mark but never got much closer.
Leading the scoring for the Gators were junior
Bernice Mosby with 24 points and senior Tashia
Morehead with 20. Both players had eight rebounds.
However, no other Gator scored more than 5 points.
The Gators had trouble inside, scoring 10 points in
the paint to Alabama's 30. UP was also 20-29 from the
free-throw line, shooting 69 percent.
"That's just focus," said Peck of UF's inability to
capitalize on the little things. "It's going to be layups
and free throws that determine how far teams go and
what position they play at the end of the season."
UF has now lost five consecutive games and six
out of the last seven. At 3-6, UF is in serious danger
of missing the NCAA tournament.
Peck knows the pressure is on and says the Gators
have to win their final SEC games if they want an
invitation to the Big Dance.
"If we have any hope of playing in the postseason,
we're going to have to go 5-0," she said. "With only 3
wins in the SEC right now, we put our backs against
the wall."


Horford rivals Tide in rebounding
By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@aIligator.org

Ten? Twelve? Fifteen? How many
rebounds did Al Horford just grab
against Alabama?
"I thought he had about 25, to be.

against the unlikeliest of opponents,
Horford manhandled the Crimson

contest. There was no loose ball he
didn't chase. And even when he failed
to snatch those one or two stray shots,
Alabama still felt his presence.
"He kicked our fannies today,"
Alabama coach Mark Gottfried said.
"There's no mistaking that."
Toward the end of the second half,

Donovan: Horford is'a sponge

learning curve to a sponge al-
waysrabsorbing experience, never
exuding naivety. Even Saturday,
when the pupil seemed to do no
wrong, Donovan prodded at the
sponge. The freshman's problem?
After grabbing offensive rebounds,
he forced off-balance shots instead of
findig open teammates. Donovan
told Sim this. Then, he watched his
"sponge" work.
"[After that], every single time he
got a rebound, he kept throwing it
out," Donovan said.

Horford is fifth in the
Southeastern Conference in re-
bounds (9.2) and is tied for sixth in
blocks (1.5).
Still, there's one man who isn't
shocked by it all. Tito, Horford's fa-
ther, notched an 18-rebound perfor-
mance of his own in the O'Connell
Center. On Feb. 21, 1987, he did
so as a Miami Hurricane. So, after
Saturday's game, it was only natural
to expect Horford to call his father.
"Yea, I'll call him after the game,"
Horford said. "I'll tell him we won."
What about the 18 boards?
"I'll tell him about that [too],"
Horford said.

fact that Alabama defeated Mississippi State
by 49 points the same MSU team that de-
feated UF by 14. How does that happen? Who
knows. How does lowly Auburn, who was 1-6
in the Southeastern Conference, defeat MSU on
Saturday by 14?
Taking the SEC is clearly wide open this year,
so I'm giving the Gators a chance.
But the biggest opponent Saturday .wasn't
Alabama. It was something that is much tougher
to defeat.


Coach Billy Donovan, his staff, Alabama
coach Mark Gottfried and many other coaches
around the country wore sneakers with their
dress outfits as part of the Coaches vs. Cancer
National Awareness Weekend. Sure, sneakers
and a suit look goofy, but I bet it got people to
donate. Mission accomplished.
Donovan didn't seem to mind the shoes too
much.
"If our guys will play like that, I have no
problem coming out in this attire every game,"
Donovan said after the game.
If the Gators play as well and balanced as they
did on Saturday, he won't need the sneakers.
