SG to sell Sun deal
By DAVID COHEN
Student Government is helping the
Sun shine its rays across campus.
Student Body President Joe
Goldberg announced plans Tuesday
for a promotional committee to help
push forward the $46,000 Gainesville
Sun Readership Program recently pur-
chased by the Student Senate.
The program involves the daily
distribution of 2,500 special "student
edition" papers on campus that SG
will purchase incrementally at 10 cents
a copy from tuition-funded reserves.
"This (the marketing committee) is
to ensure that students take advantage
and understand all the benefits associ-
ated with this new program," Goldberg
wrote in a memorandum. "This in-
cludes, but is not limited to, assisting
the management at the Gainesville Sun
on effective marketing strategies and
programs, distribution and promoting
awareness of the program."
The committee of students is head-
ed by Sun bill sponsor Sen. Mike Belle.
Belle was not available for comment.
Goldberg said the committee will
start meeting soon but plans to end its
work before the Sun student edition
makes its way to campus next month.
He called the infant committee a
"think tank to get ideas together."
"This is only to help them get off
the ground," he said; "Then it's go-
ing to be up to the Gainesville Sun to
implement those strategies."
Goldberg said the committee
would not have a stake in the Sun's
"The committee should in no
way, shape or form help the editorial
department," he said. "If it is, the com-
mittee will no longer be around." ,
But William "McKeen, chairman
of UF's journalism department, said
some of the goings-on have left him
"The whole thing that has come
up is kind of unusual," he said. "I
think they do some really weird things
under the name of marketing. My con-
cern is that there is going to be an edi-
Student between SG and
GOVermm nt the Gainesville
Master lecturer Mike Foley,
who teaches reporting classes in
the College of Journalism and
Communications, said he met with
the managing editor of the Sun last
week and fears faded.
"We were assured that there's go-
ing to be no journalistic problems,"
he said. "You can't blame Student
Government for trying to market
this addition because they are paying
46,000 bucks for it. As long as this com-
mittee doesn't get involved in content,
newsworthiness, story selection or any
other journalistic decision-making, I
don't see a problem."
Foley said he is confident that the
Sun will make the right choices.
"I'm giving them the benefit of the
doubt," he said. "I have no reason to

Law school to offer new
master's degree track
Students of UF's Levin College
of Law this Fall will have the op-
portunity to study for a new de-
gree in international tax law.
The. program is applicable to
students who want to go into inter-
national accounting, international
law firms or finance ministries
of foreign countries, said profes-
sor Michael Friel, director of the
college's Graduate Tax Program.
"It's really sort of .a natural
fit with our existing master's
degree in taxation," he said.
The large number of interna-
tional students enrolled in UF's
tax program led to talks about
the new one-year track, Friel said.
The new program will accept
about 10 students this year, which
will soon grow to 25, he said.

Reporter jailed for not revealing anonymous source
* SHE FACES MONTHS IN PRISON
FOR HONORING CONFIDENTIALITY.
By CHUCK BAER
Alligator Contributing Writer
A federal judge jailed New York Times
reporter Judith Miller on Wednesday'for re-
fusing to divulge her source to a grand jury
investigating the Bush administration's leak of
an undercover CIA operative's name.
The prosecutor, U.S. Attorney Patrick
Fitzgerald, responded in court to Miller's
refusal to name her source by saying "we
can't have 50,000 journalists" each making
their own decisions about whether to reveal
"We cannot tolerate that," he said. "We are
trying to get to the bottom of whether a crime
was committed and by whom."
The case has aroused passions in the media
community, with The Newspaper Guild lead-
ing a two-minute moment of silence in news-.
rooms Wednesday as well as protests around
"I think it's a sad day for journalism, a sad
day for freedom and a sad day for democ-
racy," said Bill O'Meara, the guild's New York
chapter secretary of the treasury.
The case is seen as a key test of First
Amendment press freedom, and many media
groups have lined up behind the reporters.
Thirty-one states and the District of Columbia
have shield laws protecting reporters from
having to identify their confidential sources.
However, in this time of the Patriot Act
and increasing tolerance of governmental
intrusion, some see upholding the First
Amendment more as hiding behind it.

"It seems the only people who care are
other journalists," said Jon Roosenraad, as-
sistant dean of UF's College of Journalism
and Communications. "It's very hard to get
average citizens fired up about freedom of the
Earlier in the day, co-defendant Time mag-
azine reporter Matthew Cooper said he would
cooperate with the investigation into the leak
of the identity of CIA operative Valerie Plame
because his source gave him permission.
As for Miller, unless she decides to talk, she
will be held until the grand jury ends its work
in October. The judge speculated that Miller's
confinement might cause her source to give
her a more specific waiver of confidentiality,
as did Cooper's.
The case continues the debate on the proper

Natural hormone could ease, shorten time in braces
UF researchers: Wearing time could be halved

Orthodontic patients soon may

as UF researchers are testing the
abilities of a natural hormone to bio-
chemically assist in realigning teeth.
While modem orthodontics re-
lies only on force to move patients'

use of anonymous sources, highlighted recent-
ly by the retraction of a Newsweek magazine
story on alleged abuses at the Guantanamo
Bay detention facility and the revelation of
the Deep Throat source from the Watergate
"I really don't like confidential sources,"
said Mike Foley, a master lecturer in the
College of Journalism and Communications.
"But I understand why they are used, and I
understand that's the way the world works,
especially in Washington."
At issue is who in the administration
leaked Plame's identity. Her name was dis-
closed in a column by Robert Novak days
after her husband, former Ambassador Joseph
Wilson, impugned part of President Bush's
justification for invading Iraq.
Wilson was sent to Africa by the Bush
administration to investigate an intelligence
claim that Saddam Hussein may have pur-
chased yellowcake uranium from Niger in the
late 1990s for use in nuclear weapons. Wilson
said he could not verify the claim and criti-
cized the administration for manipulating the
intelligence to "exaggerate the Iraqi threat."
Disclosure of an undercover intelligence
officer's identity can be a federal crime if pros-
ecutors can show the leak was intentional and
the person who released the information knew
of the officer's secret status.
Cooper spoke to White House Deputy
Chief of Staff Karl Rove after Wilson's public
criticism of Bush and before Novak's col-
umn ran, according to Rove's lawyer, Robert
Luskin, who denies that Rove leaked Plame's
identity to anyone. Cooper's story mention-
ing Plame's name appeared after Novak's
column. Miller did some reporting, but never
wrote a story.

Senate may lower Phillips student tickets to $10
Christian music event also in works
By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Student Sen. Sundeep Rawal paid about
$70 to see "Riverdance" in February, but with
new Student Government-subsidized student
tickets, he will be center-stage at "Cats" for $10
Abill allocating $115,000 to subsidize student
tickets at the Phillips Center for the Performing
Arts for the 2005-2006 season passed its first
reading Tuesday in Student Senate.
Ticket prices can be as high as $70. If the bill
passes, student tickets throughout the audito-
rium, for any show, will cost $10.
"Theoretically, we could buy out the or-
chestra pit," Sen. Jared Hernandez said.
Though the bill has not yet passed, $10 tick-
ets for the 2005-2006 season have been on sale
since June 3. Phillips Center Director Michael
Blachly said he is confident the subsidy, to be
matched by the Phillips Center, will come.
He said 828 student tickets already have
been sold for the upcoming season, expressing
doubt that the tickets will last through Spring.
"We're facing a problem that we all want,"
he told the Senate on Tuesday night. "The sup-
ply and demand issue is one that's working
favorably toward your peers."
The Phillips Center has sold reduced-price
student tickets since 2001, but SG has only
subsidized them since Feb. 15, when it granted
$75,000 to fund the tickets through June 19.
To avoid abuse of the program, a Gator 1
Card is required at purchase of and admission
with the student tickets.
In other performance-related grant news,
SG may help fund "Engage," a Christian
rock concert on campus. It is scheduled for
Sept. 8, though the artist and venue are un-
Student Government Productions,
SG's entertainment bureau, and Gator
Christian Life are co-sponsoring the event.
Because GCL is not an SG-funded organi-
zation, it has asked SG to cover its half of
the $20,000 bill.
If the Senate grants the request, SG's half
will cover artist fees, and SGP's half will cover
GCL is considering two popular national
acts Blindside and Skillet to be sup-
ported by two local bands. Former GCL presi-
dent Galen Wood said although contemporary
Christian music is the sixth-largest genre in the
nation, it is not represented at UE
UF has 20 Christian organizations and
2,700 involved students, Wood said.
"Why do we have classical concerts when
this type of music outsells classical two-to-
one?" Wood said.
However, Sen. Jamie Wathen expressed
concern about the absence of SGP Chairman
Joey Van de Bogart at Tuesday's meeting.
"I don't feel comfortable if SGP says, 'You
pay $10,000, we'll spot the other 10,' and then
they don't show up to the meeting," she said.
The bill requires one more reading and a
vote to pass.
Gainesville congregation endorses same-sex marriage
By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Alligator Contributing Writer
The United Church of Gainesville
has approved in spirit a resolu-
tion endorsing same-sex marriage,
which it has practiced for years.
The United Church of Christ's
General Synod, the church's rule-
making body, officially adopted the
resolution Monday. The Gainesville
congregation was first asked to ap-
prove it at least as early as April.

However, the local congregation
affiliated with the United Church of
Christ has followed an "open and
affirming" ideology toward the gay,
lesbian, bisexual and transgender
community since 1991.
Larry Reimer, a United Church
of Gainesville pastor, said the
Gainesville congregation unani-
mously approved the resolution.
"All people are children of God,"
he said. "Marriage is afforded to
everyone else in the United States,
including convicted felons and
sex offenders. The only people in
America that can't get married are
LOCal tion encourages the
News church's 1.3 million
to adopt "wedding policies at their
churches that do not discriminate
against gay and lesbian couples."
And it urges the congregations
to support legislation to grant equal
rights to all couples, regardless of
their gender, and to work against
laws banning gay marriage.
"This is a very important and
exciting step for the gay community
and the people of faith who made
this resolution," said Tamara Cohen,
director of UF's Lesbian, Gay,
Bisexual and Transgender Affairs.
Cohen said because opponents
of the resolution try to define "mar-
riage" as a sanctified union between
a man and a woman, it was impor-
tant to use "marriage" instead of a
word with a lesser meaning.
Reimer said some people left the
Gainesville congregation in 1991,
but since then there has been a posi-
tive response from church members,
which now number about 600.
The United Church of Christ was
formed in 1957, and later became
the first major Christian church to
ordain an openly gay minister. ,

Mosquito numbers controlled
By STEPHEN MAGRUDER
In a city used to roller-coaster
population swings, local health of-
ficials are happy to report controlled
numbers of a particularly less-than-
welcome resident: the mosquito.
"Typically, it's a peak time, but
right now we're just not seeing it,"
Gainesville Mosquito Control ento-
mologist Kellie Etherson said.
Florida's June-to-October hur-
ricane season, which often brings
months of rainy weather, helps
mosquitoes breed wherever standing
However, this season has seen
fewer mosquitoes, Etherson said.
Gainesville Mosquito Control,
which operates inside city limits, em-
phasizes controlling mosquito larvae
before they hatch by draining stand-
ing water in low-lying areas and using
mosquito-eating fish and bacteria.
Etherson said Gainesville hasn't
had to spray for mosquitoes this year
because officials continuously moni-
tor about 50 poorly draining "hot
spots" throughout Gainesville where
mosquitoes are likely to breed.
"In past years, the spraying has
become less frequent, and that's what
we strive for," Etherson said. "We
look at spraying as a failure."
"Typically, it's a peak time,
but right now we're just not
Gainesville Mosquito Control's
Web site states more than 200 mos-
quitoes can breed from one table-
spoon of water.
Adult mosquitoes have the ability
to.transmit diseases such as West Nile
Virus and encephalitis to animals and
humans. Alachua County Health
Department Environmental Health
Director Paul Myers said four horses
and 14 chickens have tested positive
for Eastern Equine Encephalitis in
Alachua County this year, but no hu-
man cases have been reported.
."While the risk is low, the risk is
not zero," Myers said.
Draining plant containers, bottles,
gutters and anything else that can col-
lect water is recommended to avoid
breeding your own mosquitoes.
To avoid mosquito bites, Etherson
advised staying indoors at dawn and
dusk, as well as wearing like-colored
"Mosquitoes don't see color, but
they see contrast," she said.
Mosquitoes also are attracted to
chemicals in sweat, as well as certain
odors such as perfume and cologne.
Mosquito repellents containing
the chemical DEET also are recom-
mended, as well as two new, more
natural chemicals recently approved
for use: Picaridin and oil of lemon

flooding from hurricanes Frances
and Jeanne where officials could not

He said the editor of the student section has not been
Goldberg said SG would not spend additional money to
implement the committee's marketing strategy.
"We're paying for these papers," he said.
Goldberg said SG's executive branch has about $58,000
allotted this year for advertising, but the whole of SG spends
hundreds of thousands of dollars annually on promotion.
Senate President Pro Tempore John Boyles said that
even without a budget, the committee could use SG's Web

Activities Center and other methods to promote the Sun.
Boyles said SG has created committees in the past to
increase awareness of the USA Today and The New York
Times readership programs.
"I believe that the goal of the committee is to help to pro-
mote a service that SG is providing," he said.
Boyles said SG is wary of spending money advertising
what student Activity & Service fees fund.
"We do our best to not use student money to get the word
out about what their money is already doing," he said.

Built better, stronger and faster than before, the
Department of Darts & Laurels is eager to tackle the raging
bull that is American life, circa 2005.
Funny, though, as our eyes wander to the countryside of
France and glue themselves to the spinning spokes of the 189
men competing in this year's Tour de France.
How else should we spend Summer B, as our tests and
papers pile up, than watching four hours of biking every day
through the majestic French countryside?
Oh, there are better ways. Silly us.
We're a little wistful as we pedal into this week's edition
Darts & Laurels
While we rev ourselves up for the main field, we'll stay on
topic and hand a the-first-crash-is-the-deepest LAUREL to
Lance Armstrong, everyone's favorite lung, brain, abdomen
and testicular cancer survivor, for making a class gesture
After, the former leader of the Tour de France, David
Zabriskie, crashed and dropped out of first place Tuesday,
Armstrong would not don the symbolic yellow jersey of the
top rider until a Tour official made him or else.
Since Armstrong himself crashed several times while in
contention, including twice during his victorious Tour run in
2003, he's no stranger to reversals of yellow-jersey fortune.
Other riders have made similar moves in the past for their
fallen competitors, but we salute Armstrong for giving ever
more credibility to a sport already known for its politeness.
Switching gears to a less polite frame of reference, we'll
expel an of-course-we're-not-a-culture-of-fear DART to the
many governmental agencies involved in Esuvee.com, a
"consumer awareness and safety" Web site that has aired a
number of esoteric TV and movie-theater ads.
Instead of spending the millions of dollars they're
spending on the program to lobby for changes to the auto
industry's practices, the groups behind Esuvee.com ins.eadd
hold the SUV driver responsible in "teaching" them how to
handle the dangerous equipment. '
A true case of government on our side.
We've been called esoteric a few million times before, so
we'll mount the highest horse in the land and stretch to hand
a putting-away-childish-things LAUREL to the Student
Senate for quietly ending the Gator Growl funding debate.
Hear us out: Instead of passing an even more exorbitant
bill in defiance of the earlier veto of $200,000 in Growl fund-
ing, the Senate chose to stick close to the $140,000 approved
by the administration.
The new plan also will reduce 15,000 student Growl tick-
ets to $5 instead of giving the $140,000 away scot-free, which
was one criticism of the earlier plan.
Disagree with the so-called "bailout" or not, Student
Government officials' willingness to end the madness shows
With the finish line in sight, we use the last gas in our
tank to build a thank-you-for-seeing-that-two-wrongs-don't-

Miller, who could spend months behind bars for not divulg-
ing her sources to a federal prosecutor.

Miller made a decision anyone with ethical standards
should support she refused to sell her livelihood short to
appease faceless officials who don't care about the implica-
tions of their actions.
In its own way, it's much like Lance Armstrong, on a hec-
tic street in Chambord, zipping up a blue-and-white jersey in
defiance of the rules for the sake of decency.

Newspaper projects an affront to university town
Editor: I long have cherished a belief in an absolute
right to freedom of the press. That belief has been shaken
in the last month in this university town.
As if the Alligator were not enough to separate
the students from the rest of us, the New York Times-
owned Gainesville Sun was reported here to be work-
ing with the UF School of Journalism to create pages
with news for area college students.
Our students apparently have other things on their
minds. And if they don't they soon will, courtesy of a
New York Times concept.
But that degree of separation pales by comparison
with the the likely result of a reported intent of the New
York Times to publish a newspaper targeted to a poor
black community created by de jure/de facto segrega-
tion in East Gainesville.
When I left Orlando, three weeklies and a newsletter
targeted "news" to blacks, who generally are left out of
positive news in The Orlando Sentinel.
But at least they were black-owned.
Still the result was-to move the community toward
racial separation: "voluntarily separate" but "equal."
Such "specialization" in a university town dumbs
down our common interests. All that is left for us to
share are the TV wonders of Entertainment Tonight and
. of course all Gator sports.'

Southeast tour this summer.
Starting Over, an Ocala band, consists
of Joe Barnes, 21, and his brother Randy
Barnes, 17, and high school friends Erik
Nilsen, 18, and Chad Tauber, 18. Lead
singer Greg Shields, 20, has been with the
band for about three months.
Their music will be embraced by fans of
bands From First to Last and Senses Fail.
Starting Over will be playing shows
throughout Florida and will also be hitting

on the road is generally
boring, but they plan to break it up by
promoting the band.
"Typically, we find whatever malls we

the heck out of the band," Barnes says. "I
credit this method as being the reason for
all the Myspace friends we have, as well as
the countless amount of online streaming
plays we receive daily."
Don't knock these guys just because
they are from Ocala. The city has more of a

years it is really low, Barnes says. There is

which was too easily abused and
resulted in scared-defensive backs
and automatic points.
Gamers potentially could
depend entirely on their game
breakers, their three impact play-
ers, and earning a "game-break-
ing" moment or an instant
touchdown in every series.
But EA has foreseen this unre-
alistic plan. "Game-breaking" mo-
ments will become an occasional
than a constant
First off, they
will be more like
timely stiff arms
or a key pass de-
flection than a miracle Hail Mary
or an impossible interception.
And second, you'll be lucky to get
two a game.
The new "Road to the
Heisman" feature will let gamers
generate their own high schooler,
recruit him and work their own
impact player four years in pur-
suit of the coveted trophy.
UF's impact players are deserv-
ingly Chris Leak, Chad Jackson
and Earl Everett.
Second only to the addition of
Brett ers to "NCAA
Kelman Football 06" is
don't Hate the Playa the inclusion

from last year's Madden, and
its new counterpart, the "Truck
Now, as linebackers flick the
joystick and feel the bones crunch
beneath their thumbs, so too can
beefy running backs as they lower
their shoulders and pursue the
shortest distance to the end zone
a straight line.
I think this is a much-needed
addition, since a charging bruiser
won't have to let percentages de-
cide if he breaks the next tackle.
Still, like that risky hit stick, usirg
the truck stick constantly should
have serious drawbacks.
With impact players, "Road to
the Heisman" and the truck stick
all joining the game, this year's
installment of NCAA football is
something to get excited about.
Maybe this is the year that
this fan's favorite finally will
outdo its older, professional and
consistently better brother. Still,
with adaptive AI, new franchise
options and the ridiculously in-
tricate "Superstar Mode," what
"Madden 06" promises is equally
Honestly, I'm buying both.
Spielberg overdoes apocalyptic terror with 'Worlds'
If aliens attacked the human race, took
us hostage, killed us and then sprayed
our blood all over the remains of the
destruction, it would be apparent to al-
most anyone that it would suck.
Director Steven Spielberg wanted to
make this clear to moviegoers in his latest
film, "War of the Worlds," and he definite-
ly did over and over and over again.
The movie, based on H.G. Wells' 1898
novel about alien invasion, is an intense
and thrilling sci-fi spectacle that fails to
go any deeper than the novel, despite
Spielberg's desperate attempt.
Tom Cruise stars as divorced deadbeat
dad Ray Ferrier, who seems to have no
skills as a parent and no connection other
than sharing the same blood with his chil-
When their mother and stepfather drop
them off to spend the weekend with their
dad, all hell breaks loose literally.
Aliens inserted into the ground by freak
lightning storms man massive tripod de-
struction machines planted
on Earth before the human
Of course, they imme-
diately start to disintegrate
humans one by one.
Sounds crazy I know, but
it's pretty cool.
While I personally didn't ooh and
aah during the annihilation sequences as
much as I cringed and gripped onto the
person next to me one of my manly guy
friends, thank goodness audiences will
leave the theater impressed at the elements
of sound, act-ion and special effects.
Much like a bodybuilder with a less
than huge southern region, "War of the
Worlds" overcompensates with its special
effects for its lousy dialogue, plot and even
Spielberg seemed to dramatize every-
thing in the movie,
Melissa ._ boundaries to the point
Filipkowski where the actors are
The Reel Life overacting.
firstname.lastname@example.org It's ironic actually,
if you think about how
the movie and all the
Tom Cruise madness was overpublicized.
The plot of the movie also drags on and
is choppy at places.
Most of the movie is Cruise and his two
kids running away from the huge alien tri-
pod killing machines;-and after 15 minutes
you'll get the point aliens bad, humans
good, characters must runaway.
While at first the movie is extremely
intense and terrifying, how much death
and destruction can you see before you get
used to it?
Perhaps if Spielberg had created more
meaningful emotional ties to characters, I
might have felt a little sorrier for them.
The worst aspect of the movie was
Spielberg incorporating some political
Dakota Fanning, who plays Cruise's
wide-eyed and constantly screaming
daughter, fearfully asks her father if it
is terrorists attacking them, and family
members desperately look at walls and
walls of missing ad fliers that are obvi-
ously a reference to Sept. 11, 2001.
Overall, the movie is only good but
mainly for its special effects and action
Again, like bodybuilders: It's some-
thing good to look at, but only expect to be
intrigued for about 15 minutes.

Men strike back, critique women's fashion no-nos
Ante up, ladies; it's time to admit that
maybe we don't give guys enough
This week I truly was stunned to find that
masked by a facade of beer guzzling, female
ogling and sports watching, men actually
may be deep thinkers.
I understand that statement is rather
shocking; I'm still befuddled myself.
You see, the goal was to seek out the pet
peeves of female fashion from the male per-
spective. It may seem a futile effort at-first,
for when it comes to style, we ladies tend to
hold the cards. However, it's only fair to deal
the guys in, too.
It was a good week. I bet the gym and the
bars were the two havens of male bonding
where I would have the highest success rate.
And yes, I won that round.
Upon asking the million-dollar question,
of course there were the replies, "I like it
when they wear nothing," and "It's not what
girls are wearing, it's trying to get them out
of it," and "those ugly ruffled mini skirts."
You know, the ones you learn to expect.
But, then there were the trump cards,
the answers I didn't anticipate. Men were
actually philosophizing and discussing the
intangible qualities of style.
Ladies, in fashion as in life the stakes are
high you must be weary of the consequenc-
es of your actions and always look out for No.
1. Brace yourselves; in taking this matter to the
guys I found they were not full of No. 2.
Here are their top five replies:
5. Overdressing Mies Van der Rohe
said it best: "Less is more." There is no
need to parade around all
day dressed like you're ^
ready to take on the night
scene. However, if you
jusf haven't been to bed .
from the" evening before,
go on rock star, you're
4. Too much uniformity How can you
be eye-catching if you get lost in the shuffle?
So unless you plan to take over the world
with your army of clones, ladies please re-
lieve your ruffled mini skirts of their negli-
3. Dressing inappropriately for the sea-
son Like a house of cards, this action is
very prone to fault. You should know bet-
ter than to wear those damn Uggs in the
summer if you are going to whine about
how hot you are, or wear tank tops in the
winter if you're going to complain that
2. Caring too much about what others
think, especially women I think they hit
the nail on the head here.
I admit that in the past I, too, have been
guilty of this but since learned the error of
my ways. It's so liberating not to care what'
Christine However, the opinions
Steffens of others can mean the
Fashion a Go-Go difference between look-
Fashion a Go-Go .
email@example.com ing fabulous and looking
So use common sense,
play your cards right and find value in the
minds of those you trust.
Finally, the royal flush of answers:
1. Lacking discretion in clothing choices
and not dressing for your body type Oh,
where do I begin?
Ladies, you and I know we come in all
shapes and sizes. Just because we may be
able to fit into a size 6 pair of jeans, that
doesn't mean we should wear them in pub-
lic. Maybe.a size 8 would be better?
When it comes to showing skin, it is im-
perative to proceed with caution and think
outside the box. Why bare a stomach paunch
when you have a great pair of legs? What we
don't realize is that we actually detract from
ourselves when we reveal too much, just like
a bad poker face.
Emphasizing our assets and playing
down our imperfections. enables us to put
ourselves out there with confidence. We tell
the world how we want to be seen instead of
being the passive victims of overexposure,
thus allowing the world to judge us.
Let's call a spade a spade: The best-
looking woman is the one who feels
comfortable in her skin, lets her person-
ality shine through, is independent and
celebrates her uniqueness. Not necessarily
the one with the best clothes or the most
Ladies, I hope you fared well in this
hand. If not, it was time to deal a new round
Though we may be more fashion-for-
ward than our male counterparts, it took a
guy to make me realize it may be for all the
wrong reasons. However, in poker if you
break even, you're still a winner.

COUNTDOWN TO KICKOFF
UF defensive line coach looks to improve pass rush
By ERIC ESTEBAN
Alligator Staff Writer
When Urban Meyer accepted the job as
head coach at UF, he began to assemble his
defensive staff with one thought in mind.
Instill toughness, tenacity and disci-
pline to an underachieving defensive line
that allowed 8 out of 12 opponents to rush
for more than 100 yards in 2004 while com-
piling-just 23 sacks.
Enter Greg Mattison.
As the Gators' new defensive line coach
and co-defensive coordinator, Mattison's
attitude on the field screams of Big Ten
Conference coaching experience. Before
arriving at UF, Mattison coached at
Michigan for four years and Notre Dame
This spring, he worked relentlessly at
implanting his philosophy in Gainesville.
In 2005, the key to the Gators' defensive
front will revolve around putting more
pressure on the quarterback. During the
spring Mattison circled that as the biggest

"We have a lot of work to do on pass
rush and that is one phase we will work
extremely hard on this summer," Mattison
said. "If someone were to have asked,
'What do you feel you haven't done good
enough coaching this spring?' [I would
have said] I feel like we didn't improve
enough in the pass rush."
UF returns all four starters up front, but
both the defensive line and the defense as
a whole will be anchored by the talented

Calls leave fans wondering if referees can do better

With every breath on his
black whistle decorated with
bite marks, UF intramural sports
referee Gilad Goldenholtz is self-
assured and confident.

Gators intramural games for the

Florida State fans had plenty of reasons to celebrate after FSU defeated UF 38-34 in one of the most
controversial games in team history. Questionable referee calls marred the final outcome.

portant of a game for both parties,
there's something terribly wrong.
Sports officials might as well start
calling Tiger Woods for illegal

pitching wedge within 75 yards,
or Kobe Bryant for a personal foul
every time his shot is too pretty, or
a decrepit old lady for roughing
the shuffler every time she heck-
les her opponent in shuffle board.
This just doesn't make sense.
Offensive guard Shannon Snell
was so outraged from the calls, he
couldn't refrain from using four
expletives in less than 6 minutes
during a post-game interview.
"It's bulls---," said Snell,
usually an affable, cuddly bear
who listens to U2 and Kid Rock.
"They took five fumbles away
from us that should have been
ours. I have a newfound respect
for [Southeastern Conference] of-

they gave us some tough calls.

plays determine the outcome of a
game, not just one or two or five.
But the five fumbled plays by the
referees Saturday overshadow
most all others because many
were the difference between a
touchdown and an arrow to the
heart, an extended lead and an 8-

bowl of soup for consolation.

You can try to find a Gators fan
that has forgotten, the infamous
2003 UF-FSU football game,
now dubbed the Swindle in the
Swamp, but you'd probably
have better luck finding a Ron
Zook fan in Gainesville. Since the
advent of modem sports, fans
have always pointed the finger at
referees for seemingly ill-advised
calls going against their favorite
team. But after this hard-fought
game, everyone felt cheated.
"[The NCAA] needs to bring
in officials from another confer-
ence, maybe Pac-10 or Big Ten,
because this was definitely a bi-
ased game," former UF offensive
lineman Shannon Snell said. "It
was bull. [The officials] took the
game away from us."
But you didn't have to be a UF
fan to raise your eyebrows at the
officiating that always seemed to
go FSU's way. Several Seminoles
players admitted that the offici-
ating was far from perfect, but
from the FSU perspective it was
still a solid Seminoles victory.
"That's the way games
go," FSU running back Leon
Washington said. "Even if, and
that's a big if, the referees made
a bad call, [Florida] had the game
won. They scored [with 2:50 left]
and were up by three."
In the end, ACC officials ad-
mitted the calls were inaccurate.
"The ACC admits mistakes
were made," Foley said.
"It's not something I agree
with whether it's the SEC or
ACC, but that has nothing to do
with this situation. I think people
should be held accountable."
In this classic column, Jeremy
Fowler discovers that even an
intramural referee could have
called this game correctly.

Lee makes debut with Knicks
By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer .
With one pick left in the first round
of last week's NBA Draft, David Lee...
was angry. His cell phone was silent 3
and it didn't look like the New York
Knicks were calling him with any sort .

It turns out Lee had no reception
in the bar where he was watching the
Draft, so he relied on the TV for the I ,
most joyous news of his life Lee
was heading to the Knicks.
So much has gone through Lee's
head in the past week, but when the
former UF forward officially replaced
the orange and blue jersey with New
York's own variation of orange and
blue on Wednesday, UF men's basket-
ball's biggest success story in recent
years realized he had made it.
"It's unbelievable," Lee said. "The
New York Knicks are such a great
franchise and the city is so wonderful.

* UF COACH URBAN MEYER CONTINUES TO
RECEIVE VERBAL COMMITMENTS FOR 2006.
By BLAKE BONSACK
The UF football team continues to stock up for the fu-
ture after receiving a verbal commitment from Bradenton
defensive line prospect Terron Sanders.
Sanders, a 6-foot-2, 298-pound nose guard put of
Southeast High, will enter his final high school season
this fall after being named 2nd team All-State as a ju-
For Sanders, getting an education was a priority in
making his decision.
"The academic level," said Sanders, when asked
why he wants to play for UF beginning in 2006. "The
University of Florida is one of the top academic pro-
grams in the nation and that's really high on my part."
Sanders also said his personal relationship with
Urban Meyer and his coaching staff was an important
"The other big thing was Urban Meyer and the pres-
sure on him to win," Sanders said. "It meant a lot to me
that he had the trust in me to offer a scholarship."
Sanders attended summer football camp last month
and impressed the coaching staff with his strength, tech-
nique and tremendous first-step quickness.
Sanders, along with current 2006 UF commit Corey
H Hobb-, could fill the need for powerful, run-stutqn
defensive linemen to compliment the defense agg64.-
After failing to sign any defensive lineman from the
high school class of 2005, the need has become even more
crucial. Look for the Gat.ors to sign two to three more
defensive linemen from the high school class of 2006.
With juniors Marcus Thomas, Ray McDonald, Joe
Cohen, Steven Harris and senior Jeremy Mincey nearing
graduation, the 2006 class could see playing time early
Although verbal commitments are non-binding and
Sanders could sign with a different school come national
signing day on Feb. 1, he said that he has no intention of
continuing to look at other schools. -

Not-so-happy reunion scheduled for Lee, Drejer in summer league
Heads up two former Gators are
scheduled for .a Sin City show-
Much of Gator Nation might recall Feb. 18,
2004, as a day of treachery.
One day after not making the trip for
a Southeastern Conference showdown at
Georgia, Christian Drejer shocked UF fans
and teammates alike, announcing his decision
to leave the Gators for a professional gig in
"It's a strange deal," Lee, then a junior, told
Florida (12 innings)
the Alligator. "I consider Christian probably
my best friend on the team, and I never even
got a call from him.
"I was walking out of the locker room [the
previous Sunday]. I said-Later, Christian, I'll
see you tomorrow,' and he said, 'I'll see you
tomorrow D-Lee.' He gave me a little peace
sign, and I never spoke to the kid again. That's
been the hardest thing for me. But you've just
got to move on."
And the one-time pals have moved on
- only in different directions.
M The UF-FSU rivalry returns to
Gainesville this year, but the
memories of the 2003 debacle
remain for many fans. See page
Now, a guaran-
teed contract and a
Catalonian flop later,
the former friends will
meet for the first time
since Drejer's shady
departure as opponents
in the Reebok Vegas
Summer League when
the Knicks' and Nets'
respective summer teams meet on Monday.

i July 9, 2002: Before helping lead Miami
to the 2005 NBA Eastern Conference Finals,
former UF center Udonis Haslem takes his
first step toward the pros by playing with the
molding himself into a first-round pick by the
New York Knicks in last.week's NBA Draft.
Considered an NBA. first-round lock out
of Danish prep school, Drejer finally caved in
to the seven-figure proposals from European
clubs, abandoning the Gators for PC Barcelona,
but his bluff had been called.
The 6-foot-9 point forward, whom Coach
_ Billy Donovan once referred to as the most-tal-
ented player he had ever seen in practice, fell
to the Nets with the 51st overall pick. -

al.'hree players saw ample time
on the court Wednesday.
Lee finished with nine points
and seven rebounds in 21 min-
utes, shooting 2-of-6 from the
field and recording two assists.
Channing Frye, the 8th
pick in the draft from Arizona,
played 29 minutes, finishing
with 16 points.
The other first rounder on
New York's roster, 5-foot-9
guard Nate Robinson who was
acquired in a trade from the
Phoenix Suns, finished with 20
points and five assists.
Former Gators center Brent
Wright also played for New York
and showed promise, finishing
with eight points and shooting
4-for-5 from the field.
If Lee hopes to continue play-
ing 21 minutes a game when the
scores count, he may have to
adjust to a new game plan.
After playing center and
power forward at UF, Lee played
small forward on Wednesday.
While no one doubts Lee's athle-
tism, it's a drastic change for the
6-foot-9 big man.
"They don't know what I can
do at [power forward]," Lee said.
"There's quite a few big guys in
this summer league, but I'll be
playing more [power forward]
"Everything went really well
and the team is really happy
with me. The biggest thing was
just getting that first exhibition
game under my belt."
Former Gators forward
Christian Drejer also made
his summer league debut on
Wednesday, scoring six points
on 2-of-7 shooting in 31 minutes.
