Shuttle stays grounded

CAPE CANAVERAL The
seven astronauts aboard Space
Shuttle Discovery face a "best-case
scenario" three-day wait as NASA
technicians determine the specifics
of a fuel-sensor malfunction that
"scrubbed" Wednesday's launch.

Wayne Hale said. "We were ready
to go. It was clearly a launch -

minutes to confirm
News NASA adminis-
trator Mike Griffin
said a check of the four sensors
inside the bottom of Discovery's
main fuel tank that measure liq-
uid hydrogen which is ignited
with a separate tank of oxygen for
thrust found one of them to be
malfunctioning two hours before
"We're beginning a trouble-
shooting procedure to work it
out," Griffin said.
Though all four sensors in the
system measure hydrogen levels
and thus are redundant, there was
no way to know the sensor was
faulty until the fuel tank was filled,
which is done after the shuttle is
rolled out to the launch pad.
"You don't need all four to fly
- you have to have all four to
commit to launch," NASA spokes-
woman June Malone said.

pad after the launch' is scrubbed at Cape Canaveral on Wednesday.

If the rocket does not detach in time,
which was a risk as the sensor was stuck on

damage could result to the shuttle's engines.
A similar problem occurred during test-

by replacing the tank entirely, including all
the wiring and miscellaneous parts. The new
tank and sensors functioned properly during
testing earlier in the day.
"As all electronics owners know, there's
nothing more annoying than an intermittent

Google Earth opens up world
By DOUGLAS BONEPARTH
Alligator Contributing Writer
Fly from Gainesville to Tokyo in seconds.
Google Earth, a new satellite-based geograph-
ical search engine, allows users to fly from space
to street level to research geographic information
and explore places around the globe.
At the click of the "search" button, Google
Earth takes them wherever they want.
"Google Earth utilizes broadband streaming
technologyand 3-D graphics, much like a video
game, enabling users to interactively explore
the world either their own neighborhood or
the far comers of the globe," said John Hanke,
general manager for Keyhole, Google Inc., in a
Aside from.virtually traveling anywhere on
the planet, searches can be localized to find in-
formation like hotels, restaurants, schools, parks,
banks and transportation. It can even record-
driving directions and play it back to the user.
Users can combine multiple layers of informa-
tion, such as cross-referencing school districts with
address look-ups of available homes, business
listings and public transportation, and save their
results for later use, according to the press release.
"The geographical information is supplied
by various data providers," said Youliang Qiu,
teaching assistant for the department of geogra-
phy. "Then Google Earth integrates Google's lo-!
cal search data, similar to online Yellow Pages."
Google Earth's impact could reach beyond
personal use and may reshape how professionals
gather and understand information.
"It's a phenomenal tool," said Mike Foley, mas-
ter lecturer in the department of journalism. "To
be able to find out where some-
thing is that fast is amazing."
He said Google Earth could
help journalists comprehend
information by exploring rela-
tionships on many levels. J
l "I have my students write
stories which involve loca-
Foley tions they probably have not
Journalism lecturer been to," Foley said. "Students
and reporters can verify that
information with this tool."
Qiu said while Google Earth may not have a
large impact on geography science, it will help the
public with understanding such information.
"Students and professionals will definitely
have a clearer idea when it comes to answering
any question related to where something is,"

Funding barrier halts non-Greek SG hopefuls
MONEY, from page 1
"I definitely believe that they
(Greeks) are encouraged by their hous-
es to vote for a certain party," he said.
"Greek houses are allowed to be an
official sponsor. They're going to have
a stance and they are entitled to share
that stance with their members."
And they are abundant in SG.
Sixty percent of SG executive offi-
cers are Greek, including six out of nine
SG agency heads.
SG adviser Chris Cupoli said his
organization is anything but one-di-
"I think it's a lot more diverse than
people give it credit for," he said. "The
culture groups may have more of a
hold than a Greek chapter would."
Bullins said high involvement is just
the nature of the Greek system.
"Our students do a lot of com-
munity service," he said. "They get
great exposure to leadership training. I
think that's what keeps them interested
- the ability to grow as a person."
But the Spring 2005 election had
Impact Party Presidential Candidate
Dennis Ngin seeing green.
"I cannot see someone who is run-
ning for Student Body President with
$100 in their pocket winning the elec-
tion," he said. "If you don't have a lot of
money, it's going to make it that much
harder to win."
Ngin donated $2,800 to his cause.
"I think the administration and the
students can agree that SG needs a
makeover," he said. "People take it too
seriously. I think that's the problem."
The Impact Party reported spending
a total of $12,482 for the campaign and
the Progress Party spent $9,071 by the
end of their run.
The Moritz family contribution to
the Progress Party was $6,970 but their
former hopeful said money isn't much
of an object when running for Student
"I do think it's possible to do with-
out very much money," Moritz said. "It
definitely helps to have money."
Charles Grapski, a teaching assis-
tant who has involved himself in SG for
almost 20 years, said the money factor
may prohibitpotential candidates from
"Money is a major barrier," he said.
"There's no way for an average student
to put together a campaign. It's just
The Gator Party spent $18,656 in the
Spring, more than both Progress and
Impact, and won 38 out of 46 possible
Senate seats in the SG elections.
Gator Party senatorial candidates
coughed up $75 each to be on the
ticket, and the family of Student Body
President Joe Goldberg gave $4,675
toward the campaign.
Goldberg was the only presidential
candidate to have Greek affiliation.
Goldberg, who has been a member
of Phi Delta Theta fraternity since
Spring 2002, said his party would have
won without the deep pockets.
"I think in any campaign, money is
going to be an asset because it enables
you to get the word out about your
campaign," he said. "I think money's
an asset but I don't think it's essential
to becoming an executive. I think that
our message was on point."
Goldberg said he knows of SG cam-
paigns that have hit the $40,000 mark.
"It's been all over the board," he said.
He said SG just finds the best man
for the job when conducting searches
for its higher-ups.
"I don't know who's Greek," he said.
"We don't take affiliations into account. I
want someone who can get things done
and is qualified for the job."
E-mail will save money
HOUSING, from page 1
The system is expected to save a considerable
amount of time and money.
With more than 7,000 students moving on cam-
pus this Fall, the postage and staff time it would
take to mail each housing assignment is substan-
tial, Blansett said.
"If I had been able to know my roommate ear-
lier it would have been so much easier to know
what to pack and know who it is that
you're moving in with," said former
LifStudent resident adviser Erica Scicchitano,
Life-- who lived on campus for two years. "It
would have relieved a lot of my stress
about moving away for the first time."
Early room assignments are not the only aspect
of dorm life the Department of Housing looks to
"We are actively working on being able to ac-
cept credit card payments for rent. Right now
we're just dealing with technical and procedural
difficulties," Blansett said.
Housing is also trying to create an online lease
agreement, although Blansett noted there are ma-
jor-challenges her department must overcome to
make this a viable option.

Ground the Shuttle and
focus on the future
One thing hits home after the Space Shuttle's return
to space was again delayed Wednesday: It's get-
ting mighty old.
The Shuttle is 33 years old, as a working concept, and
24 years old as a flyable space vehicle.
So as the Shuttle program reaches middle age, we must
consider how the craft's return to space will aid President
Bush's semi-ambitious plan to explore strange new worlds
There's no doubt about it it is a necessity for human-
ity to devote a significant amount of time and money to
Furthermore, it is crucial to our development as a race.
The monumental obstacles overcome by NASA in the
1960s, to get not only into space but to see two men on the
moon by decade's end, are synonymous with America's
power to accomplish the impossible when necessary.
Apollo 11, which lifted off 36 years ago this -week,
didn't have as much computing power as a pocket calcu-
lator. It took several years and at least three human lives
to get the go-ahead.
But when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on
the moon, we stood proudly, our power on the world stage
unmatched for one shining moment.
It didn't seem off the mark, back in 1969, to envision
the turn of the 21st Century as an age of multiple-planet
exploration and technology beyond comprehension.
Even after the programs were scaled down severely
in the 1970s, NASA's endeavor to innovate brought us so
many new technologies we take them for granted more
than 1,500 of them.
One thing separated our plan from any others that have
come before or since. Money.
That's what we need.
NASA's budget was roughly $30 billion (in 2005 dol-
lars) in the mid-1960s, compared with about $16 billion
today. If it cost us $30 billion a year to go to the moon, how
will half that amount get us to Mars' doorstep?
The truth is, NASA doesn't know. Nor does the federal
government the projected timeline for space travel, as
released by a cooperative effort of several agencies, has
moon travel feasible again by 2020, with first foot on Mars
It doesn't seem to make sense that we have to wait 15
years to get where we were four decades ago; in fact, it
becomes clear we're not putting enough into the program
to get anything useful out of it.
So all the effort having been expended to get a twenty-
something symbol of our obsolescence into orbit seems a
waste, when we could probably save our money and de-
vote it to newer programs.
Private firms are working to join the Shuttle and the
Russian craft Soyuz in the heavens by the end of the decade.
And replacements for the Shuttle, which will be neces-
sary to make the leap to other planets, have been on the
drawing board since before the Shuttle's first launch. As
of today, no working models exist to our knowledge, even
It's a comforting sight to see people in space, but it's
not comforting enough when our commitment to advance-
ment is considered.
Let's ground the Shuttle and move on.

We don't know enough to judge Rove
ust so we're clear, let's get one thing out of the way first:
If Karl Rove leaked Valerie Plame's name directly or
indirectly then he should be fired.
President Bush promised he would remove anyone who
participated in the leak from his administration, and he
should follow through on his promise.
But until that is proven, everybody needs to back off and
let the investigators do their jobs.
Liberals already are up in arms, demanding that Bush
fire Rove and openly criticizing him and White House Press
Secretary Scott McClellan for avoiding questions about
Do you want to know why they're avoiding these ques-
Maybe, just maybe, it's because they -don't know the
I know we all think President Bush has a magic crystal
ball that lets him know each and every thing that goes on in
the world, but let's assume for a second that maybe it's not
working at the moment.
The rallying cry against Bush today is that he "misled the
public" about Rove in the same way that he misled the public
about nuclear weapons in Iraq which, of course, is a whole
separate argument that I won't go into.
Let's say you lie to someone. They believe you and then
go around spreading the lie, believing it to be true. Are they,
then, a liar?
I don't think so.
Bush originally said he had talked to Rove and that Rove
had no involvement in the leak.
Read between the lines: Bush talked to Rove, and Rove
told him he wasn't involved.
Bush took Rove's word for it. What other choice did he

Thus far, that's the only evidence
presented against Rove: an e-mail
sent from Cooper to his boss stating
that Rove leaked the information.
That's pretty damning informa-
tion. No debate there.

firstname.lastname@example.org privy to before everyone else was.
It also doesn't prove Rove's in-
volvement by itself, though it does
make that outcome seem inevitable.
I'm not saying the Bush administration didn't know.
Maybe they did.
I'm saying that we can't assume our political opponents
have been lying to us every time they are found to be wrong
- even if they don't have a very good track record.
No one knows that much.
Not even the president.
All of this bickering between Democrats and Republicans
about who's playing nice is making our government seem
more and more like a bunch of spoiled kids fighting over
who gets to be X's and who gets to be O's.
Maybe it's too much to ask, but how about we all set aside
must-be-wrong-on-every-possible-subject thoughts and try
being rational for a change?

Guest .:oL: T
'Fair trade' too complex for newspaper column
In no way could Christian Waugh have given
an adequate analysis of the difference be-
tween fair trade and free trade in Tuesday's
Alligator. There's just not enough space. I
thought I'd add a few points, though:
How is fair trade different from free trade?
Defining either is tricky.
I've been an advocate for fair trade for two
years now as a member of Students Making
Trade Fair. In that time, the members brought
Fair Trade Certified coffee to both Java City and
Starbucks on campus, with the help of Gator
Dining Services and Student Government.
Fair trade coffee can be a great tasting prod-
uct with a great socially-responsible message.
As Waugh's column stated: "Fair trade seeks
to alleviate poverty as a matter of social justice
by using 'fair pricing' for goods and services,
but it may also involve transparency, environ-
mental protection and tariffs."
He's right. Established more than thirty
years ago in Europe, Fair Trade Certification
organizes farmers on cooperatives, where they
can grow coffee beans on small plots of land,
pool their crop yields together and sell it on the
The cooperatives don't sell to middlemen,
who are known to buy cheap and sell high.
Instead, the cooperatives directly sell to a coffee
Claudia Adrien :-'.t--tr Apercentage of
Speaking Out the profits go toward
education and health
care programs benefit-
ing the cooperative.
Unlike coffee beans purchased by roasters
such as Maxwell House or Sara Lee, fair trade
coffee must be produced with environmentally
strict standards. Trees cannot be cleared to grow
the crop, and many cooperatives use entirely
organic farming methods.
These coffee farmers receive small loans and
operate under the strict supervision of indepen-
dent third-party agencies.
Is this regulation? Yes. Does fair trade have
its own system of tariffs? Yes. Is it governmen-
tally regulated? No.
Despite political affiliations, fair trade ap-
peals to those on opposite ends of the political
spectrum. The.U.S. House of Representatives
in 2002 unanimously supported a fair trade
There's a demand for fair trade and the sup-
ply is growing. The demand for the product
comes out of the public's desire to have socially
This is an essential motivating factor when
more than 25 million farming families live un-
der extreme poverty. Poverty surrounds coffee
because the industry is cornered by four domi-
So, instead of seeking governmental regula-
tion, which didn't work decades earlier for the
coffee industry, the competition provided by
fair trade forces many of these companies to
Proctor & Gamble now sells a line of fair
trade coffee. And Kraft is willing to work with
other certification processes, like Rainforest
,Alliance, to create more environmentally sensi-
tive growing conditions for their beans.
Ideally, free trade is thought of as an uninter-
rupted exchange of goods and services. I think
this notion must be re-examined.
In all of history, especially in the history of
democracies, there's always been some form
of government intervention and a system of
To advocate free trade in its purest sense
could never realistically occur if societies choose
to live with government.
Fair trade is a self-regulating industry with
socially responsible practices.

Beer Pong skips out of houses, bounces to venues

Standing in front of a shiny, freshly painted
red wooden table at downtown Gainesville's
Market Street Pub, Matthew Chavez ignores
everything else around him. He doesn't
see the two girls standing next to the table,
their blond hair, pink tank tops and occa-
sional swaying giving them the appearance
of slightly tipsy cheerleaders. He doesn't hear
the muffled music pouring from the overhead
speakers through the crowd, nor does he smell
the spilled beer on the hardwood floor as it
forms slippery puddles around him.
With only a strip of small yellownspotlights
shining down on him, Chavez concentrates

his hand. His goal: To sink that ball into the

Trend should advocate cause
What happened to human decency?
Livestrong@, Lance Armstrong's campaign
to fight cancer, has paved the way for a trend
of rubber bracelets that tout awareness as fashion.
Unfortunately, it seems that wearing one may be harbor-
ing a negative connotation.
While doing research for a previous article on ward-
robe pet peeves, I met a number of people who men-
tioned the wristbands, saying they were lame.
This kind of pissed me off because unlike other cloth-
ing styles, this one doesn't come with
a price tag and supports one of the -'"
noblest ideals human survival.
Similar to the jelly bracelets from
elementary school, the soft bangles
come in every color under the spec-
trum, each one demonstrating for a .
different cause from poverty preven-
tion to water purity to counteracting disease.
Throughout your day, you are guaranteed to see a
rainbow of them adorning the arms of celebrities, pass-
ersby, colleagues and friends. I've even seen individuals
with them around their ankles.
When was the last time you donned a fashion that
championed anything other than yourself?
I realize that in this town and on this campus, we are
a population of young adults. We are works in progress,
having not fully come into our own, but don't you think
we are a little young to be portraying ourselves as cyni-
cal, misanthropic dolts? -
Such a sentiment seems to be sprouting nationwide
as well. My best friend in Minneapolis recently went out
on a very bad date with a guy who was not only bor-
ing, but happened to be wearing a yellow Livestrong@
band.Was the armlet the deal breaker? Not necessarily,
but she'd be lying if she said it didn't carry a slight nega-
On the other hand, there are those who slip them on

foolishly practice self-disclosure.

existence. We were nice and respectful to one another
and smiled at complete strangers for no reason.
Perhaps in the wake of the most recent London as-
saults, conveniently timed during the G8 summit for hu-
man rights, this is not so subtle a reminder that we need
to regroup and rally around one another.
The bottom line is, though the wristbands may not
always match your outfit, everything goes with good

"The more drunk people
get, the more impressive it
gets," says Esa Khan, 21, a UF
math major, who was cheer-
ing his friends on as they
played at Market Street.
Local bars are using Beer
Pong tournaments to attract
customers into their busi-
nesses, using beer and poten-
tial prizes as bait. First prize is
usually cash or other prizes,
like gift certificates, bar tabs
and other rewards.
At Market Street alone,
the numbers are increasing.
While only about 15 teams of
two registered the first week,
about 20 to 25 teams signed
up at the latest tournament.
However, many people
have never played the game
or even heard of it, if they're
not from the area.
Matt Glossop, 30, a British
native who works in the UF
physics department, brought
his visiting friend from
England, Niall Maclean, 33,
to watch the game.
"We've never seen any-
thing like this before," says
Glossop, as he and his friend
watch the drunken sport be-
ing played at multiple tables
around them. "We don't have
anything like this in the UK."
Whether they come to
play for cash prizes or just to
drink, the basic point of Beer
Pong seems to be the same for

in to put in his two cents.

Nallflowers deserve revisiting
May 24, 2005
Almost a decade
after The Wallflowers released
ieir hit "One Headlight," it's
me to bring attention to this rock
roup once again.
The band's fifth album hit the
tores without much fanfare, and
Rebel, Sweetheart" could be one
f the most underrated albums of
The Wallflower's signature
found is all over this record; just
straight-ahead rock 'n roll that
takes influence from Springsteen
Though the melodies are some-
what predictable, and at times it'll
make you think, "God, this is so
'90s alt rock," you can still listen
to the album proudly with the
windows down in your car.
Lead singer Jakob Dylan's
gritty voice (thanks to dad, the
legendary Bob Dylan) and his
poetic songwriting are what make
The Wallflowers so magnetic.
Dylan's lyrics are rich with
imagery and range from personal
relationships to the war in Iraq.
One notable track is "God Says
Nothing Back," on which Dylan
sings, "God says nothing but I
told you so."
Though the content is pretty
dark, it won't. leave you feeling
depressed. The band success-
fully contrasts the subject matter
and the melody, which takes on a
lighter tone than the lyrics.
If you pick up this CD, make
sure to hear the band's new-
est single, "The Beautiful Side
of Somewhere" and "Days of

've recently made a not-so-popular transition in my dat-
ing identity. Sometime in Spring, I changed from a non-
smoker to a social smoker.
Now in my opinion, habits are habits.
I floss more often than I smoke, but no one ever re-
quests "floss advocate" in personal ads or roommate
applications. The dating distinction between smokers
and nonsmokers though is much more dramatic. Even
though I'd rather be categorized as part of the clean-teeth
brigade, that label may not be how most people see me.
So, as a part of the increasingly common club of only-
when-I'm-drinking tobacco-users, I realized I didn't know
where I fit in the spectrum any longer.
Since I rarely buy cigarettes, I'm not a consistent smoker.
However, any number of strangers wouldn't know that. after
seeing me bumming a clove from my friends at the bar.
As a social smoker, was I already branded and boxed with
the pack-a-day types?
My friends gave mixed reviews when I asked whether
or not I counted as "a
Mr. Lube One friend, who
Risque Business cringes anytime
firstname.lastname@example.org someone mentions
me un-datable. He
said he dated a guy
who, like me, only enjoyed cigarettes in combination with
alcohol. My friend could still smell the smoke on the guy's
clothes and could taste it in his mouth without ever being
near a lit cigarette.
On the other hand, another nonsmoker-only friend said
my nicotine consumption was acceptable.
Then, I went to the out-and-proud smokers to hear
about the grass on their side of the fence.
While the inhaling choices of their sporadic dates was
really a toss up, all my smoking friends were in relation-
ships with only fellow smokers.
It seems like the population filters itself.
But still the question remains for my fellow social
smokers and me. As it seems, we go both ways.
While I love the feeling of perpetual distraction that
comes from mixing nicotine and alcohol, I know I can get
the same affect from caffeine.
As well, using my search for a light to spark conver-
sation with strangers has produced some fun memories.
However, I'm rarely at a loss for words, especially if al-
cohol is about.
Even though I have enjoyed my experiences with the
cancer sticks, I'm not sure I'm really ready for the stigma
or the label.
When -it comes to smoking and me, I might just be
12, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, JULY 14,2005
Bookstores will host magical festivities to welcome 'Half-Blood Prince'
POTTER, from page 8
Though it sounds like a bad pun on the
book's title, LifeSouth Community Blood
Centers' blood mobile will be in Books-A-
Million's parking lot July 16 and will raffle
off copies of the new book to donors. Center
Stage also will set up a magic booth in the
store for the pre-release celebration
Other stores have smaller events planned.
Barnes & Noble's festivities begin at 9 p.m.
on Friday. The store will give away posters
and have a face-painting booth.
Joe Simmons, corporate sales representa-
tive at Borders, said he is expecting a mob of
Harry Potter fans in the store Friday.
"I'm a little hesitant, but it should be
fun," he said.
Borders will basically be a big activity
room for children, he said. Some of the ac-
tivity tables will involve making magic po-
tions and others will feature wizard duels.
Simon & Schuster is the store's main
sponsor and will provide prizes like post-
ers and bookmarks to winners of the house
cup challenge, which will involve trivia and
possibly costumes, Simmons said.
Even local Gainesville bookstores like
Goerings Book Store will stay open later for
Harry Potter fans.
Goerings' event will begin at 10 p.m.,
said Mary Ann Emerson, a Goerings em-
Last year, the store opened the sealed
boxes at 11:45 p.m. and distributed the prod-
uct to customers. At the stroke of midnight,
it began selling the books to customers.
Emerson said the store would probably
use the same procedure this year.
Goerings is also partnering with Mike
and Lisa Manfredi at Sweet Dreams
Homemade Ice Cream, Coffee and Desserts.
Each customer who comes to the celebration
will receive one free scoop of ice cream arid
can also purchase a one-time-only butter-
beer-flavor ice cream. -
Emerson said the contract Goerings
signed with Scholastic had strict clauses
that prevented it from marketing Harry
Potter merchandise without the publisher's
However, Emerson said when she called
Scholastic and explained what the store was
trying to do, the publishing company told
her items such as a butterbeer-flavor ice
cream would be acceptable for the July 15
"People have been asking, 'Are you go-
ing to be open Harry Potter night because,
if you are, I want to get my book from
Goerings,'" Mike Manfredi said.

Walsh to sign $1 million contract with Miami Heat
By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
Shaq, Dwyane Wade ... Matt
In a surprising reversal of
fortune, the former Gators guard
will sign a partially guaranteed
contract with the Miami Heat in
late July, and may find himself on
Miami's opening day roster.
Critics lambasted Walsh's de-
cision to leave UF following his
junior year, believing he wasn't
ready for the NBA.
Initially it appeared like a poor
decision on Walsh's part he
wasn't selected in the NBA Draft
- but he continued to believe he
would land a pro contract as a
Now, Walsh will sign a two-
year contract believed to be
worth more than $1 million.
"It feels great," Walsh said.
"I'm definitely excited after some
of the negative stuff that was said
after the Draft."
Walsh's father, Mike, and
agent, Jason Levien, received a
bulk of the criticism for possibly
swaying Matt to enter the Draft,
but all along the Walsh camp
said the Heat were interested
in Matt and likely would have
drafted him had former Kansas
forward Wayne Simien not been
Now, the Heat gets Simien and
Walsh, and the Walsh family can
breathe a sigh of relief.
"It's been a little hectic," Walsh
said. "I'm happy, obviously, for
myself, and I had confidence this
was going to happen. I'm happy
for my dad, agent and AAU
coach. After everyone said [those
three] made a bad decision, they
get to say 'screw you.'"
Role on Heat
Walsh will be teamed up with
former UF forward Udonis Haslem,
who signed a new five-year contract
with Miami on Tuesday expected to
be worth almost $34 million.

It's not the Olympics.
In a truly brilliant move on Friday, the
International Olympic Committee elected not
to include baseball and softball in competition
after the 2008 Beijing Games.
Clueless IOC president Jacques Rogge said
baseball would be allowed to return only if
it allowed its top players to compete and ap-
plied stiffer doping penalties.
But come on Monsieur Rogge. MLB su-

afford to fund their Olympic programs. And,

said that was not brought up.
"I'll fit in good," Walsh said.
"Anytime you can play with Shaq

Degory heads UF offensive line
* EXPERIENCED LINE IS ONE OF THE MOST
UNIQUE IN THE NATION.
By ERIC ESTEBAN
Alligator Staff Writer
To call them the centerpiece of the offense would be an
understatement, but don't expect any of them to be on the
cover of NCAA Football 2007.
The offensive line is regarded as a position for the big
guys who just do as they're told. They don't score the
touchdowns, but rather win the game in the trenches.
If experience translates to success, the Gators' offensive
line could be the best one to play in the Swamp in quite
UF will field four seniors and a freshman on the 2005
starting line led by center Mike Degory. Degory, who has
started 38 consecutive games since his freshman year, was
recently named to the Outland Trophy Watch list. The tro-
phy is awarded to the best lineman in college football.
Degory, arguably one of the top three UF players on
either side of the ball, has been a mainstay at UF for three
years. With Coach Urban Meyer's offense still in the learn-
ing process, Degory's leadership and consistency will be
counted upon in 2005.
At 6-foot-7, 315 pounds, senior Lance Butler
switched sides on the offensive line, becoming the new
starter at the right tackle position. As another player
that will be counted on to provide leadership, Butler
believes the Gators' offensive line is one of the most
unique in the nation.
"I think that the guards want to push guys back,
but I think as an offensive line we are one of the more
mobile units in the country," he said. "We've got big
guys and most of us weigh in around 310 and can still
get out there and run and make plenty of plays down

Chris Leak's blind side. In
an offense revolving around speed and misdirection,
Washington should be able to pull out and provide
excellent run blocking for the Gators' backfield.
He might seem like the odd guy out on the depth chart,
but redshirt freshman Jim Tartt was one of the pleasant
surprises in the spring.
"He's done really well, but he's just a really big, coun-
try, strong, tough guy," Butler said. "He can go out there
and just smash people in the face, and I know from talking
to [linebacker] Todd McCullough that running into that
kid is like running into a wall."
Sophomores Drew Miller and Phil Trautwein also will
be in the rotation this year along with junior Steve Rissler.
WALSH, from page 22
Two of UF's three early departures should play in the
NBA next season.
Forward David Lee, selected in the first round of
the NBA-Draft by the New York Knicks, will now be
engaged in a friendly rivalry with Walsh.
In the 1990s, Miami and New York were bitter rivals
in the NBA, and there is still animosity between the
Walsh hasn't spoken to Lee in recent weeks, but said
he looks forward to playing the former /UF star in the
But it's still undetermined whether Roberson will
get his opportunity to join Walsh and Lee in the pros.
Since scoring 13 points for the Memphis Grizzlies
in their summer league opener, Roberson's numbers
have dropped. On Tuesday he scored just four points,.
but added four assists. Walsh believes a NBA team will
eventually sign Roberson to a free agent contract.
"Peep's out here in L.A. with me. We're staying in the
same hotel and we've been hanging a bit," Walsh said.
"He's playing well and has a real good opportunity [to
make the NBA]."
