HOMECOMING 2005


Wayne Brady to headline Gator Growl


By CRYSTAL HENRY
Alligator Writer
chenry@alligator.org

Gator Growl officials have selected "Whose
Line Is It Anyway?" comedian Wayne Brady
as the headlining act for this October's event.
Brady, an Orlando native who has won
two Emmy awards including one for "Whose
Line...," will join a who's who of past per-
formers, such as Jerry Seinfeld and Jay Leno,
at the world's largest student-run pep rally.
Brady's talent coordinator, Colleen McGarr,


said Brady will work closely with Carmody
and the rest of the Gator Growl staff to tailor
his act specifically for this year's show.
"He's from Orlando, so he's super familiar
with Gator Growl," McGarr said.
She said Brady agreed to perform at UF for
a number of reasons, but mainly because, like
for many performers, Gator Growl is like a
right of passage they all want to do it once.
McGarr said Brady is the first performer
of his kind at Gator Growl because he will
incorporate comedy, music and improvisation
all in one show.


Growl spokesman Chris Chase said Brady
will be paid $65,000 for a 45-minute perfor-
- mance. Last year's head-
S & liner, Blue Collar Comedy
Tour's Bill Engvall, was
paid $90,000 for his Gator
Growl appearance.
Although the Florida
Blue Key event has a
smaller budget this year
Brady and had to request a pro-
vision of almost $200,000
from Student Government, the "Revenge of


the Swamp"-themed show will go on, Gator
Growl Producer Rob Carmody said.
Carmody said he still is searching for
opening acts but doesn't want to get students'
hopes up by naming any of the possibilities
until he knows whom he will get to commit.
Students can also audition to be part of the
event at a talent night to be held within the
next few weeks, Chase said.
Both Carmody and Chase noted every-
thing is right on schedule for what will be
Gator Growl's 80th year, and Carmody, who

ISIS to charge cards


At Criser Hall (above), students can pay their bills in several ways without facing a new service charge.


By STEPHEN MAGRUDER
Alligator Writer
smagruder@alligator.org

Students who use ISIS to pay
university obligations, such as
tuition, with a credit card will see
a charge added to their transac-
tions next week in a move a UF
administrator says is meant to
encourage the use of less costly
payment methods.
Starting July 26, a 2.6-percent
service charge will be added to
all credit card payments made
through ISIS on UF's Web site to
offset the fees charged to the uni-
versity to process the payments.
UF Senior Associate Controller
Stuart Hoskins said UF students
pay more than $40 million in
tuition each year, and the fees to
cover credit card payments made
by a minority of students are paid
for by all students.
"That's why we had to make
this decision," he said.
Hoskins added that admin-


istrators, who announced the
upcoming fee Friday via e-mail,
have considered adding the fee
since January.
Credit card companies charge
UF about 2 percent of the total to
process online transactions. The
extra 0.6 percent UF is charging
students will cover the cost of hir-
ing a processing company.
"What we tried to do was go
back and charge this to the stu-
dents who were using the credit
cards," he said.
"We know increasing any fees
isn't popular with students."
VISA, the most frequently used
credit card on ISIS, declined to ac-
cept the 2.6-percent service charge
and no longer will be accepted on
ISIS.
VISA would have allowed the
convenience fee if UF charged a
flat fee to all students, Hoskins
said, but that was not feasible
since some students use ISIS to

Multicultural groups seek improved representation


Editor's note: This is the second story in a
series taking a closer look at the hidden
structures of Student Government.

With opinions as diverse as their back-

seem to agree on one thing: there is room for

sentation of minority students.
Senate President Diane Kassim, the highest
ranking African American woman in SG his-
tory, said the path to her position was riddled
with challenges.
"I'm not going to say it was easy at all," she
said. "I took chances. There were several situ-
ations where I thought I would never be a part
of (Student) Senate again."
Kassim said she feels SG is treading the high
road of diversification.
"I believe that [SG] is a better reflection of


the student body, more so than the administra-
tion," she said. "The numbers are moving up.
(But) there's always room for improvement."
Hispanic Student Association Vice President
of Operations and District
Student D Sen. Laura Gonzalez said
Government there are very few hoops to
jump through in order to
get to the SG finish line.

she said. "I don't think being a minority made

SG adviser Chris Cupoli said he believes
SG is on the path toward boasting a group
of representatives just as multifaceted as UF's
student body.
"Just looking around the third floor (of the
Reitz Union), I think it is more diverse than it
has been," he said. "It's a fairly diverse room.

Witches, wizards and were-

for pints of Berry Brew and
purple mini cakes, while others
bustled through the store mak-
ing wizard hats and watching
magic tricks.
At 12:01 a.m. July 16, the
crowd in Books-A-Million on
13th Street erupted in cheers as
an employee behind the registers
lifted a book into the air the
first of approximately 450 books
sold in the first hour and a half.
"Harry Potter and the Half-
Blood Prince" was no longer a
secret.
Scholastic Inc., the global
children's publishing and media
company, printed and shipped
10.8 million copies of "Harry
Potter and the Half-Blood
Prince" filling more than 600
trucks in preparation for the
biggest book release in history,
according to a company press
release. More than 5,000 stores
nationwide held midnight par-
ties to celebrate the release of J.K.
Rowling's sixth Potter book.
"It's like Christmas in July,"
said Clay Whittaker, a cafe as-
sociate at Books-A-Million. "The
excitement grows as the minutes
tick away to midnight."
Harry Potter fans scoured
the store looking for any Harry
Potter accessories they could
find, including books, pencils

visited one of the four activity
"classrooms" in the store.
Jessica Stephens, a 13-year-old
fan who arrived just after 9 p.m.
to take part in the festivities, said it
was weird being in Slytherin when
her stepsister was in Gryffindor.
The two houses are pitted against
each other in the books.
Fans were dressed in such
elaborate costumes that custom-
ers had a hard time distinguish-
ing between reality and the fan-
tasy world of Hogwarts School of
Witchcraft and Wizardry.
"I wasn't expecting Professor
Trelawney to be here," Stephens
said, motioning to a woman
dressed as one of the book's char-
acters, complete with long, curly
silver hair, a crystal ball and eye-
glasses that magnified her eyes to
twice their normal size.
The winners of the best overall
costume contest, Ryan Tamay and
Alex Geoffroy, were dressed as a
Slytherin quidditch player and a
hippogriff, respectively. A hippog-
riff is a magical creature that looks
like a giant eagle and horse.
Ashley Powers, who dressed
as Harry's sidekick, know-it-all
Hermione Granger, came to win
Books-A-Million's Harry Potter
trivia contest.
Cradling a stuffed dragon
named Norbert, Powers entered
the contest but did not win.
However, she was still excited
about receiving her book and said
she was going to start reading it
the minute she got it.
"I'm going to stay up until six in
the morning if I have to," she said.
Stephens, on the other hand,
said she was going to go to sleep
and start reading in the morning,
since it was only going to take her
about three or four hours to finish
the 672-page book.
"I've read each one about 16
times except the fourth," she
said. "I've read that one about 40
times."
As customers filed out of the
store with their books in hand at
about 1:30 a.m., Books-A-Million
employees surveyed the aftermath.
Luke Schmidt, the store's gen-
eral manager, said the number of
people who attended the event
was much higher than the last.
"I was stupefied," he said, rub-
bing his eyes as he sat in the back
office after the event ended.

Students to vote in


online-voting poll


* A FORUM ON THE LONG-
DEBATED SUBJECT WILL
TAKE PLACE WEDNESDAY.

By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Alligator Writer
jrichards@alligator.org

Students are invited to act as
senators by debating and cast-
ing ballots on the issue of online
voting in Student Government
elections at a forum Wednesday
night, Senate President Diane
Kassim said.
"If the Senate ignores what
the students say," Kassim said,
"that says a lot about the Student
Senate."
The issue has been raised and
quashed in Senate since Fall 2001,
when students had the option of
voting online in a trial run of
the system that 600 voters used.
Gainesville-based network-
ing company Accelerated Data
Works, Inc. conducted the trial.
Kent Tambling, the firm's
vice president of operations,
said no security weaknesses
were found.
He said he has spoken to SG
every year since and assured
them each time the system was
secure.
"I felt the answers I was giv-
ing were not the ones they were
looking for," he said. "I felt they
were looking for weaknesses."
Former Student Body
Treasurer Dennis Ngin specu-
lated political motives may have
suppressed the issue in the past.
"If more people vote, better
representatives will be elected
and some people don't like that,"
Ngin said.
Sen. Jared Hernandez,
chairman of the Online Voting
Revisions Committee, said his
group has arrived at two options
for online voting, which it has
termed "secure site" and "unse-
cure site."
Secure-site voting involves
monitored polling locations that
require photo identification. Its


advantage is students can vote
at any polling location, instead of
only at their respective colleges.
With an unsecure site sys-
tem, students can vote from
almost any computer with an
Internet connection.
Tambling said IP addresses,
which identify computers
logged onto specific networks
such as campus wireless net-
works, can'be frozen to prevent
party members from campaign-
ing by using their laptops to ask
students to vote on the spot.
Addresses also can be timed
out to prevent multiple votes
from the same computer.
Hernandez expressed con-
cern that unsecure-site voting
would not protect students'
anony m -
Student ity, allowing
Government them to be
coerced from
over their shoulders.
"It's up to the individual
voter to protect their own rights
to vote," Tambling said, adding
such a case would be no differ-
ent from absentee ballots.
Committee member Sen.
Gareth Kerr expressed discom-
fort about the terms "secure
site" and "unsecure site."
"I don't like the terminology
because I think it's all secure,"
he said.,
Both forms use 128-bit en-
- cryption, code even the U.S.
government has not been able
to break.
Santa Fe Community College
and Florida International
University use online voting for
their SG elections.
"You can pick up your cell
phone and vote in Student
Government elections," said
Dan Rodkin, associate director
for student life at SFCC.
The switch to online
voting could save approxi-
mately $30,000 each election,
Hernandez said.
The forum will be held at 7
p.m. in room 282 of the Reitz
Union.

Poll: Staff happy with UF, not pay


By DOUGLAS BONEPARTH
Alligator Contributing Writer

For UF staff, life is pretty good.
A survey of more than 8,000 UF
employees showed a high level of
contentment with work environ-
ments at the university as well as
benefits and career-development
opportunities.
Of those surveyed, 84 percent
said they would recommend UF as
a good place to work, compared to
the national average of 77 percent.
As far as school spirit is con-
cerned, 83 percent of respondents
said they were proud to be part of
the UF community, right on par
with the national average.
About 61 percent of those offered
the survey, which was designed
by Chicago-based International
Survy Research, responded.
"Survey results indicate that our
staff thoroughly enjoys the working
condi ions here," UF President Bernie
Machen said in a press release.


On the other hand, the survey
revealed that the same group re-
ported a low level of satisfaction
with pay and internal communica-
tions.
"Staff pay is a major concern
and we recognize that issue. Pay is
one of our high-
UF pest priorities, and
the upcoming 3.6
percent salary
increase is a step
'roe in the right direc-
tion," Machen
said.
Machen Another area
UFpresident of dissatisfaction
among UF staff
involves the implementation of the
PeopleSoft accounting software.
PeopleSoft, blamed for multiple
personnel and payroll issues in the
year following its activation, has
made their jobs more challenging,
staffers said.
As for improvement in soft-
ware, Vice President for Human


Resources Kyle Cavanaugh said
UF has an ongoing plan to ease
employees' relationship with
PeopleSoft.
"PeopleSoft is much more than
an information system; it's nothing
short of a cultural change," he said.
"It requires a different thinking
process, but over time we will see
improvement."
Cavanaugh said the majority of
staffers believe the PeopleSoft situ-
ation soon will improve because
familiarity and knowledge of the
system is increasing rapidly.
Machen said in the release UF
will use the results, along with
other information, to create a
strategy to continue to improve the
administration's relationship with
university staff.
"Attracting and retaining qual-
ity staff is a key to our pursuit of
becoming a Top 10 institution,"
he said. "The survey results are an
important tool in helping us do just
that."

Bob Graham to visit UF


By ASHLEY JONES
Alligator Contributing Writer
Retired U.S. Senator and UF alumnus
Bob Graham will visit UF on Thursday
to discuss a center for public service
planned for the College of Liberal Arts
and Sciences.
Graham will hold an open forum for
faculty, staff and students at 2 p.m. in the
Keene Faculty Center at 103 Dauei Hall to
discuss the new Bob Graham Center for
Public Service.
The facility will be dedicated to train-
ing college students in languages, culture
and other skills vital to a career in public
service.
"Graham has been talking with UF
since the Spring about establishing this
center," said Allyson Beutke, spokes-
woman for the college.
Some of the issues Graham will dis-
cuss at the forum include the opening
date for the center, how the center will
operate and how it will be funded.


"The center, like the other programs in
the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences,
will receive state money," Beutke said.
"But Graham will also solicit for donations
r from private donors."
Plans for the
Graham Center
include implement-
ing a Statesmen-in-
Residence Program,
which will invite
j prominent U.S. and
Graham international leaders
to UF to conduct re-
search and give seminars, Beutke said.
The center also will hold interdisci-
plinary forums, provide an internship
program and eventually, through CLAS,
offer bachelor's and master's degrees in
public policy, Beutke said.
Graham will teach courses at UF and
serve as a Senior Scholar in Residence, but
will not preside as the center's coordina-
tor, Beutke said. A professor from the col-
lege most likely will hold that position.


College gets interim dean


* TONY DASTA WILL LEAD THE
COLLEGE OF DESIGN BY AUG. 6.

By DIANA MAZZELLA
Alligator Contributing Writer
Tony Dasta knew he would become an
architect and teach, but he didn't expect a
39-year stint at UF, a tenure that culminated
in his appointment as the interim dean of
the College of Design, Construction and
Planning last week.
Dasta, 64, formerly the associate dean
for curriculum and student services at the
college, started at the university as a profes-
sor in 1966 after completing his master's
degree in architectural engineering at the
University of Illinois because it seemed like
a "good place to start a career," he said.
He worked as a consultant while teaching
to become a registered architect and engineer,
he said. After 25 years as a professor, he has
spent the last 14 years in administration.
He will begin his new position Aug. 6,
according to a press release. His annual
salary as dean will be $176,274, the same as
his current salary, according to UF's human
resources and academic personnel depart-
ments.


During his time as interim dean,
Dasta said he hopes to increase gradu-
ate-student enrollment in the college and
broaden its international programs. He
said he wants to keep the college moving
while it awaits a new dean.
He has an open-door policy with stu-
dents, he said.
"When I'm a dean, students come
first," he said. "If I'm here, and you're
here, we talk."
Dasta has another two years left until
retirement when he can go fishing and
work on his golf handicap, he said. The
search for a new
U F dean should take
Administration about a year.
The college
has about 1,500
students and about 74 to 80 faculty mem-
bers so it is one of the smaller colleges at
the university, he said.
Andrew Wehle, Dasta's assistant in
student services, said he expects a smooth
transition because of Dasta's knowledge
of the college.
There will be no search to fill Dasta's
previous position, Wehle said. Dasta has
said he will continue to be involved in
student services.

UF students fight genocide one letter at a time


By ERIN CHALFANT
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF students are demanding the
President and representatives take
action against the genocide in the
p Darfur region of western Sudan.
Human Rights Awareness on
Campus has sent a total of 1,350
letters to President Bush, Sen. Mel
Martinez, Sen. Bill Nelson and Rep.
Cliff Stearns to urge them to take
action.
"We want to tell people about
these situations, and expose the ugly
truths behind the West's inaction,"
group President Nikolas Wolfe said.


The new student group, started in
March, has recruited 30 active mem-
bers and more than 200 students for'
its letter-writing campaign.
The letters implore legislators
to pass the Darfur Accountability
Act, which would establish United
Nations-sanctioned aid to the area's
peacekeepers and would create a
no-fly zone over Sudan.
Robert Uttaro, a 52-year-old UF
political science doctoral candidate,
said the only thing that could keep
the genocide in Darfur at the fore-'
front of American politics is college
students pushing the issue.
"The challenge for this gen-


eration is to get America-back on
the right side," said Uttaro, who has
taught courses on African politics at
UF and will be teaching an African
experience course in the Fall.
The United Nations estimates
a total of 400,000
Student Africans have been
Activism killed by govern-
ment-sponsored
raids since the "ethnic cleansing"
started in February 2003.
Uttaro said the United
States stopped calling the mur-
ders in Darfur genocide when
Condoleezza Rice became Secretary
of State in January, but the Darfur


Accountability Act may be able to
repair some damage.
He said the act is probably "al-
ready a dead horse" since'the White
House rejected it a few months ago,
but there is hope in mobilizing legis-
lators on local levels.
Wolfe, a political science major,
said the response from lawmakers so
far has been vague. One letter dated
July 6 from Steams said he "voted in
favor of a resolution that declared the
atrocities unfolding in Darfur, Sudan,
genocide" on July 22.
In April, the group won a $10,000
MTVu grant for its Darfur activism
as a start-up organization. Wolfe


said the organization's goal for the
summer is to continue to work and
to remember that the organization
was not just a fluke idea at the end
of spring.
"We want something to be
done," Wolfe said.
He said his group would like to
use the money from MTVu to spon-
sor a village in Sudan by sending
clothing, food and other supplies..
The organization is working
on getting speakers such as Don
Cheadle from "Hotel Rwanda" and
Paul Rusesabagina, the man his
character is based on, to speak at
UF in the Fall.

although Chase said he did not know how

University Box. Office in the lobby of the
Constans Theatre adjacent to the Reitz
Union. Tickets for non-students also can be
purchased for $18.


SG asked to engage underrepresented student groups


CULTURAL, from page 1

Sen. Jared Hemandez said he doesn't
see the SG engine running so smoothly.
"SG should not only be representative
of the students, but it should be reflective
of the. student body," he said. "There's still
a great many barriers that still need to be
broken in terms of race, sexual orientation
and gender."
Hernandez added the issues at hand
run deeper than a simple fix will address.
"The system that currently exists re-
quires groups to be politically motivated,
active and participatory," he said. "There
are institutional obstacles to tradition- .
ally underrepresented and marginalized.
groups."
But Pride Student Union President
Allison Andrews said her group has done
better recently than in past years.
"This past year was the first year that
we had really good representation," she
said. "I think that right now things are
good. More people are willing to be out
in Senate."
Asian Student Union President Sandy
Chiu said there is a shortage of Eastern
faces in SG.
"They have a fear that it's not the place


for them," she said of her constituents.
"Maybe they are afraid of SG in general.
It's harder for an Asian American to feel
like they belong at UE The outreach is not
Asian specific. A lot of people feel they are
not welcome in SG because they don't see
any Asian Americans in it."
"I think to have more people
in SG, people have to take the
initiative first."
Sandy Chiu
ASU president

She said SG members need to breathe
more multicultural air at campus events.
"It would be really helpful and advan-
tageous on SG's part if they would come
out to more multicultural events," she said.
"We can only do so much promoting."
Hernandez said SG needs to deepen its
interest in minority groups in an effort to
lure all students into the activities of UF's
student-run governing body.
"You have to engage populations of stu-
dents that haven't been engaged before," he
said. "They have to feel vested in the com-
munity I know we can do better. It takes
leaders who are willing to break barriers."
Chiu added that it has been difficult to


get efficient funding from SG because the
Budget Committee increases' organiza-
tional checkbooks by 5 percent each year,
which is too low for the "exponential"
growth of ASU.
"But there's only a certain amount
of money for student groups," she said.
"Everyone has the need for more money."
But she said she thinks the Asian
American community needs to take the
first step toward change.
Summer program director of the Jewish
Student Union Josh Sachs said his organi-.
zation is content with the state of its repre-
sentation in SG.
"I've never found a problem with get-
ting involved (in SG),"'he said. "You just
have to figure out what you want to do."
He said JSU does not tell its members
who to vote for in SG elections.
"The students are there to make their
own decisions," he said.
None of the multicultural groups men-
tioned require membership dues.
Senate President Pro-Tempore John
Boyles said senators tend to vote along
party lines rather than with their multicul-
tural comrades.
"Having a political party can been a
great tool to accomplish common goals,"
he said.

Batter up

Don't discount UF's

major-league potential
With summer in full swing, our hearts turn to the
world of baseball, where the tales of fortune and
disaster would make Kevin Costner blush.
There's the ongoing saga of the New York Yankees, the
team for whom George Steinbrenner has spent so much
money that Coleridge could pen a verse or two about
him.
With $208 million in the bank, the 25 men lucky enough
to play on the stately pleasure field that Ruth built remain
in second place with a win-loss record unremarkable in its
mediocrity.
Hint to Steinbrenner: buy five other teams. You can af-
ford it. Or the Kingdom of Tonga you could afford that,
too.
Speaking of low payroll and low expectations, no one
fits the bill like our "hometown" Tampa Bay Devil Rays,
the worst team in baseball.
Is it comforting to us, then, that the other team based in
Florida is winning only as many as it's losing? Ours must
be the worst state in the union for baseball fans.
Then again, Florida's infatuation with the game has
taken its share of lumps. We're a football state.
Or maybe Gainesville's a basketball city, too.
But it seems UE's contributions to the major leagues of
our national pastime have plenty of their own stories to
tell, and they're almost as plentiful as UF stars in other
sports. "
The Washington Nationals, led by former UF star Brad
Wilkerson, were written off as nobodies while they fought
hard to avoid last place while hailing from Montreal the
past few years.
Conditions became so bad that no one owned the team
all the other teams pitched in to buy a share to keep'the
franchise alive.
With a fresh start in D.C., they've become one of the best
teams in baseball. Wilkerson, while not an All-Star, has per-
formed admirably in center field for the Nats this year.
It goes to show that nothing is predictable, a lesson we
can all share.
Or take the story of David Eckstein, once the second
baseman here at UF and now the shortstop for the St.
Louis Cardinals.
Although loved by the folks in Anaheim, where he
started his career, he finally became an All-Star in St. Louis.
Playing for the best team in the league hasn't hurt him.
It's possible the Cards and Nats will face off in this
year's playoffs, and when they do it'll be a reunion of
Gators and of what UF does when it does something
right.
And don't forget former UF pitcher Josh Fogg, who's
held his head (and his record) above water despite pitch-
ing for the below-middling-Pittsburgh Pirates.
While none of these men have the explosive star power
of an Emmitt Smith or a Udonis Haslem, a baseball super-
star may be on the horizon faster than could be expected.
Look at the Gators this year. They weren't expected to
compete, and they made it to the brink of a national cham-
pionship.
Could Matt LaPorta be the next Albert Pujols? Could
Jeff Corsaletti become, well, the next Brad Wilkerson?
We don't know either, but you can bet we'll stay tuned.
Batter up.

Opinions


Super Lance, hero a
s mere mortals, we often look to the superhuman
for inspiration. One lives among us, and his name
is Lance Armstrong.
Webster's dictionary" defines superhuman as "being
above the human; exceeding normal human power, size
or capability."
After overcoming cancer that spread from his testicles
to his abdomen, lungs and brain, Armstrong was given a
50 percent chance to live.
He responded by winning the Tour de France a record
six times in a row and is currently on his way to lucky
number seven.
Before he was diagnosed with cancer, Armstrong had
never won the event.
The Tour de France is one of the most grueling athletic
competitions on the planet. It takes place over the course
of three weeks in July with only one or two days devoted
to rest for the whole race.
The 2005 Tour spans 2,240,miles with cyclists riding
more than 100 miles almost every day. The Tour begins
with 189 cyclists and often only half of them cross the fin-
ish line.
Imagine riding a bicycle from New York to Los Angeles
in less than a month, and then add in ample climbs of the
Alps and Pyrenees mountains for good measure.
In 1986, after 83 years of European domination,
America's Greg LeMond became the first non-European
to win the Tour de France.
At the time, this accomplishment was equivalent to
America winning the World Cup in soccer. Now, consider
Lance Armstrong's domination of the Tour for six straight
years, possibly seven.
How's that for perspective?
Armstrong's physical capability is rivaled by no other hu-

mong mere mortals
Aaron Blye man being on the planet. At the start
Blye's Eyes of the Tour, his body-fat level was
ablye@alligator.org about 4-5 percent. The average man
has between 15-17 percent, whereas
elite athletes are in the 6-12 range.
Somehow, Armstrong produces less lactic acid and
metabolizes it more effectively than most top athletes. It
is a physiological phenomenon that scientists have yet to
understand.
This ability allows him to spin the pedals around 100
times per minute on a mountain climb, a rate that would
turn his opponents' quads into Jell-O.
Armstrong's 83.8 score on the V02 Max test, used to
assess an athlete's aerobic ability by measuring maximum
oxygen consumption, is more than double that of a typi-
cal, healthy man.
His heart, which is a third larger than that of an average
male, is so strong that it beats about 32 times per minute at
rest, a rate'so low that any doctor who didn't know better
would immediately send him to the hospital.
Sounds more like a description of the newest comic-
book superhero than the attributes of a human being.
During Stage 9 of the 2003 Tour de France, Armstrong
was forced to off-road down a grassy embankment at 60
mph when a rival went down in front of him. How his 20
mm wide tires didn't explode is beyond comprehension.
Michael Jordan and Muhammad Ali might have more
talent than him, but Lance Armstrong is the greatest
American athlete of all time.
With less than a week remaining in Armstrong's final
Tour de France, Americans should all tune into OLN and
see first hand what it means to be superhuman.

Power of language extends beyond phrases and clauses


If there are universals for everyone in the
human adventure, one of them must be
language.
Denying the power of language cannot be
done with a straight face. Unfortunately, the
same can be said of trying to find a comprehen-
sive definition of language that encompasses all
its varied uses and messy meanings.
We use the word for a lot of things: the lan-
guage of love, the language of war, computer
languages and so on.
As omnipresent as it is though, language
unfortunately is taken for granted in educa-
tion, in policy and in our every day lives. We
should not, as the President might say, misun-
derestimate language's many intricacies.
As native speakers of language, our minds
quickly and effortlessly combine these forms
to express thought. But I encourage you to
toss your grammar book out the window and
learn about these rules and forms from our
linguistics department.


The fun and interesting Introduction to
Linguistics (LIN3010) presents the study of
language through many rigorous, exciting
and often interrelated disciplines such as syn-
. tax, phonology, morphology, sociolinguistics,
writing systems and many more.
We draw conclusions from sociolinguistics
as to why language in education should be
more readily understandable.
In Texas, it has been shown that students
whose native language is Spanish and don't
know English will do better in education if
they continue learning both as time goes on..
It might have something to do with the
ability to compare and contrast the languages,
thereby deriving a superior understanding of
. what makes, language work, perhaps expand-
ing our mind to consider different possibilities.
People deserve a chance to learn as fully as
everyone else. Coming to America, being born
or being raised here isn't enough.
If older immigrants don't know English,


Christian and they don't use it
Waugh in their jobs, and they
The Final Frontier don't have the financial
wug gtor.org access to resources to
cwaugh@alligator.org learn the language, and
learn the language, and
if their friends don't
speak English, then how the hell can they be
expected to learn it?
Children certainly deserve such an oppor-
tunity, which is why we should strive to leave
no child behind as opposed to simply catering
to the lucky multilinguals.
And so, too, does language in
our normal lives go unappreciated.
Every word can have an effect on the mind.
Languages themselves may shape perceptions
on a neurobiological basis, if we are to believe
some neuroscientists.
One unfortunate trend belying crude,
unfeeling and unthinking ignorance is to call
things of supposed ill repute "gay." .
English's grammatical structure contains a


more pernicious and -covert trend: the obfus-
cation of women. From the generic pronoun
"he" to the order of women in phrases like
"men and women," women are implicitly put
second place all the time by almost all speak-
ers of the language.
One linguist at UF says we should say
"women and men" until it doesn't matter
anymore. I agree.
We should be freed by language, not im-
prisoned by it. Perhaps if people made a con-
scious effort to change this, their perceptions
might change.
But language is ever-changing. Its forms
shift and dance to the speech communities
of the day. Words and grammars are here one
day and gone the next.
We should not fear the change of language,
but welcome it, because language's power
comes from diversity.

Letters to the it.:_-
Reduced library hours meet most students' needs
Editor: I am writing in response to the letter from graduate
assistant Ann Griswold complaining about library hours.
Each year, library staff develop a schedule of service hours
designed to meet the needs of UF's students, faculty and staff.
Traditionally, we offer shorter hours during the summer
and greatly reduced hours (including closing on weekends)
during intersessions.
Library use is significantly lower during these periods.
During the intersession between Summer and Fall, reduced
hours give the libraries time to gear up for the coming semester
and the library staff an opportunity to schedule the vacations
they have earned. Since we don't have redundant staffing, we


would be stretched thinly if several staff needed to be away
from the libraries during our peak periods.

Sam Proctor the real 'Gator to know'
During the past few weeks, many articles and editorials
have been published in newspapers across the state regarding
the UF Alumni Association's list of 81 "Gators to Know."
There is a man who more than deserves to be there, a true
UF alumnus who arguably has done more to advance the his-


tory of UF and the state than any other Samuel Proctor.
UF will never be the same without him. The first time I met
him, Dr. Proctor spent hours talking about not only the Johns
Committee but also other fascinating parts of UF's history.
UF was so much a part of his life. How many others can say
they have been on campus for almost 70 years?
Even though he had been ill for the past two years, when
visiting him, he would still recount names and events from the
past about professors, campus buildings and alumni.
He truly was a Gator standout and a great man every UF
alumnus should be proud of.

Renovated law library opens


* THE FACILITY STAYED IN
BUTLER PLAZA FOR A YEAR.

By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Writer
Ilewis@alligator.org

UF's Levin College of Law
reopened its library on campus at
Holland Hall on-Friday after more
than a year of storing its legal re-
sources at Butler Plaza.
The newly renovated library
has been renamed the Lawton M.
Chiles Legal Information Center
and boasts an expansion of about
60,000 square feet, said Kathleen
Price, associate dean for Library
and Technology at the college.
"What used to be classrooms
are now part of the library," Price
said. "We put in new floors and
have new classroom towers."
In addition to the expansion,
Price said the library features cut-
ting-edge technology she hopes
will aid law students.
"It's a totally wireless campus,
and every classroom has all the lat-


est technologies," she said. "Some
are energy-savers, .like when
people are moving in a room, lights
will go on, and when the move-
ment stops they'll go off."
The facility has been closed
since April 2004, when all its
resources except reserve and tax
materials were moved to a storage
facility in Butler Plaza.
Despite the inconveniences
of an off-campus resource center,
Price said students'
SOn reactions were gener-
Campus ally positive.
"I think that was
what was most surprising to me
because I expected students to be
angry, and they were wonderful,"
she said. "Our students are a con-
genial group, and they've grown
accustomed to studying in the
woods around picnic tables."
Although the library only
closed in 2004, plans for its reno-
vation have been in the works for
years, Price said.
"The project began even before
I came here from NYU, so I'd say
it started four or five years ago,"


she said, adding that UF architec-
ture students helped in the initial
stages to determine the amount of
new space necessary.
Now that the center is reopen-
ing, Price said she hopes to draw
attention to its expansion and
technologies during a dedication
ceremony scheduled for Sept. 8.
"It's a football weekend, so
we're planning to have an open
house and tours the next day," she
said, adding that recently retired
Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day
0' Connor and members of the
Florida Supreme Court are slated
to make appearances at the event.
Although she looks forward
to the events surrounding the
library's dedication, Price said
she's eager for law students to be-
gin utilizing the renovated center's
new resources.
"We're very excited to provide
this space for students," she said.
"Just as the university is seeking to
become one of the Top 10 public in
the nation, so is the law school, and
I think this library will jumpstart
that."


Campus payment still free


IS IS, from page 1

pay thousands of dollars in
tuition while others only use
it to pay parking tickets.
"We couldn't come up.
with one single rate that
would be fair to everybody,"
he added.
However, the fee will not
impact credit card transac-
tions on campus, where VISA
still is accepted. It also will
not apply to debit card trans-
actions.
The fee likely will im-
pact students who do not
receive financial aid and
cannot afford paying tuition
with a checking account.
Undergraduate Florida
residents, who pay $2,955 per
year for 30 credits, would be
charged $76.83 for making
online credit card payments.


Out-of-state students would
pay $411.50 on their $15,827
annual tuition.
Hoskins said while credit
card tuition payments are
popular, they represented
a minority of the payment
methods.
"Last time we did an
analysis, just about half of the
[tuition] fees get paid for by
financial aid," Hoskins said
He added the majority of
the remaining half is paid for
by the fee-free methods of
cash or check.
Transferring funds to UF
electronically from a check-
ing account, known as EFT,
will remain free and will be
processed immediately in-
stead of taking three to four
days also starting July 26.
Tuition payments via
credit card can be made fee-
free at S-113 Criser Hall.

Craze sweeps

UF college

By JAYME GOUGH
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF's College of Health and
Human Performance is on the ball
- literally.
Outreach coordinator Cher
Harris, 31, started the craze with her
purple exercise ball.
Staff and faculty passing by her
office would catch Harris sitting on
her exercise ball while typing at her
computer. Her high-backed office
chair sat abandoned in the comer
of the room.
"I started using it in 1999 when I
was getting my master's in Exercise
Physiology at the University of
Indiana, and the balls were just get-
ting popular," Harris said. "There are
so many health benefits that go along
with sitting on the ball, and when I
explain that to people, they get curi-
ous and want to try it themselves."
Harris started a trend that spread
quickly among the college's faculty.
Eleven faculty members so far have
traded their office chairs for exercise
balls, including the college's interim
dean, Jill Vames.
"We spend a lot of time at work,"
Vames said. "We need to have some
fun, and this a safe way to get some
low-impact exercise and bum a
couple extra calories while working.

Cher Harris, Melissa Wohlstein, Interim Dean Jill Varnes, Janice Douglas and Jessica Brennan gather
around a table in the College of Health and Human Performance's reading room on Friday.


to your printer in the office the way
you would in an office chair. It forces
you to move around."
Sitting on the ball makes you
aware of your posture, Harris said.
In the beginning, it is difficult be-
cause if you slouch you feel very un-
stable, and if you aren't used to keep-
ing your back straight, your muscles
will hurt by the end of the day.


Harris explained when a person
slouches they depend on their lower
back muscles to hold up their torso
instead of their abdominal muscles.
This.causes lower back pain, weak
abdominal muscles, cartilage de-
terioration and permanent spine
curvature.
As people who slouch age, they
eventually are unable to straighten


their spines and end up with
humps.
"I would say posture is the most
important part of being fit and
healthy because it affects all activi-
ties and everything yofi do in daily
life," Harris said.
It is especially important for
women because of bone density is-
sues, Harris said.


(352) 381-3100


Women are more susceptible
to osteoporosis than men because,
during menopause, bone density
decreases as women lose calcium,
and the bones in the spine break
or shrink. Sitting straight could
decrease harmful stress on the back
'that worsens osteoporosis.
"Sitting on the ball has made all
activities much easier," Harris said.
"I don't have any back pain, and
my core muscles are strong."
DeEtta Harissen, 34, is a pro-
gram assistant in the college's
Office of Student Affairs. She has
sat on the ball for the past two
weeks and said she already feels
the impact the ball has had on her
quadriceps, gluteus muscles and
legs.
"Students notice and say things
like 'nice seat' or 'That's different,'"
Hanssen said. "It makes a lot of stu-
dents smile, because you don't real-
ize what you look like when you
start bouncing without thinking."
Hanssen said as she became ac-
climated to the ball, boring office
tasks weren't as difficult to finish.
"I did a lot of data entry into
a computer today, but I don't
feel the mental fatigue I normally
would have begun to feel by now,"
Hanssen said.
Harris suggests beginning ball-
users start by sitting on the ball in
one-hour intervals.
"It sounds ludicrous, but sitting
up straight in the beginning is tir-
ing," Harris said.
She said K-mart sells the balls
for around $13.

Secondary prepares for more man-to-man coverage


* A KEY INTERCEPTION IN THE 2004
GAME AGAINST FSU MAY PROVE A
BUILDING BLOCK FOR HERRING.

By ERIC ESTEBAN
Alligator Staff Writer
eesteban@alligator.org

With a crucial game on the line, some-
body in the secondary needed to step up.
Ideas were on a swivel as tomahawk
chops churned in unison to the tune of the
Marching Chiefs and it seemed as if the
Gators were destined for yet another late-
game meltdown with Florida State driving
into UF territory.
But the final game of the regular season
brought promising signs for the 2005 cam-
paign. In the closing seconds against FSU,
Jarvis Herring's game-clinching intercep-
tion showed that the safety should be a
force in his final season.
Now a senior, Herring cemented his
spot at the strong safety position through-
out the spring after becoming a mainstay
on the 2004 secondary.
His ability to read the offense and be


at the right place at the right time helped
him lead the Gators last year with four
interceptions.
"I'm not a fast guy or a guy who will
run you a 4.3," Herring said. "I just don't
have that kind of speed. But I'm one that's
going to keep hustling to the ball on every
play and I'll be the last man standing."
While Herring might not be -a blazing
speedster,
S i junior Dee
110"M MI Ai ig Webb brings
i plenty of
speed to the
secondary.
Webb, who competed with the track
team in the spring to' improve his speed,
emerged as the Gators' top cornerback last
year after leading UF in pass breakups
with 10.
UF should be playing a lot more man-
to-man coverage this year, and that's an
opportunity that Webb is already savor-
ing.
"Man coverage is my favorite coverage
and we didn't run it too much until the
end of last season," he said. "I like that
a lot because I feel like I can shut down


anybody at anytime, so by [Coach Urban
Meyer] implementing that, I can be more
physical with the receiver."
An even bigger surprise for the UF sec-
ondary in 2004 turned out to be the rapid
on-field maturation of sophomore Kyle
Jackson.
Jackson started the Gators' final four
games last year and looked like a natural
at the free safety position; snatching two
interceptions in UF's 48-14 win against
South Carolina.
The biggest question in the secondary
is who will lock up the second cornerback
spot.
Senior Vernell Brown emerged from
the spring as the starter, but he will have
to hold off up-and-comers like Reggie
Lewis, twin broth-
ers Tremaine and
Jermaine McCollum
and true freshman


Avery Atkins.
The dark horse
in the race could be
sophomore safety
Reggie Nelson.
Nelson has all the


GP
TackL ls
TFL Yds
lnr t)Js


intangibles to be a force in the SEC, but
. a transition to cover corner would have
to be learned in a small amount of time.
At 6-foot-I, 175 pounds, he possesses the
ideal frame for a starting corner and is ath-
letic enough to get on the field as the year
progresses.
Sophomore Tony Joiner and junior
Terrence Holmes should also give quality
depth in the secondary because of their
game experience. Joiner is a close friend
with Jackson and the relationship has
helped him become even more knowl-
edgeable on the field.
"[Kyle] being out there and playing is
kind of like a mentor to me, because he
played last year and I didn't," Joiner said.
"So he sees things I don't see."

Donovan criticizes NBA's minimum-age requirement


By BRYAN APP
Alligator Staff Writer
bapp@alligator.org

Donnell Harvey, Kwame
Brown, Mike Miller, Christian
Drejer the list of players who
have deferred to complete their
basketball apprenticeships under
UF coach Billy Donovan grows
longer.
At the helm of a program that
lQst nearly 40 percent of its scor-
ing after former UF junior guards
Anthony Roberson and Matt
Walsh opted to go pro last month,
Donovan would seem to be the
poster boy for raising the NBA
age limit.
But the coach burned so fre-
quently by early departures of-
fered criticism of the NBA's recent-
ly adopted 19-year-old minimum
entry age during a teleconference
on Monday.
As part of the NBA's collective
bargaining agreement with the
player's union last month, the
league raised its minimum age
from 18.
Starting in 2006, all NBA draft
entrants must be at least 19 years
old, which effectively eliminates
the opportunity of high school
prospects skipping college to head
straight to the pros.
"Personally, I don't like it,"
Donovan said. "I think it creates
more confusion in our game at the
college level."
Donovan explained that from
speaking with NBA scouts, colle-
giate coaches have a good idea of


1A

Several players have left the UF men's basketball program before their third year in college. Coach Billy
Donovan suggested using an eligibility rule in basketball similar to the one used in college baseball.


which potential signees are likely
to jump straight to the league.
Under the old regulation,
coaches could maximize their re-
cruiting time by concentrating on
prospects not pegged for the pros.
Now, with the new age limit


forcing future NBA superstars to
spend a year out of high school,
coaches must face the burden of
convincing talented but potential
two-, three, and four-year play-
ers, to commit to a program as a
reserve for an unknown amount


of time.
"I think it's very difficult in
college when you sign a real good
player, and you spend an enor-
mous amount of time [recruiting
him]," Donovan said, "and then
he's only there for a year and


leaves."
Donovan did acknowledge that
players, such as former Syracuse
star Carmelo Anthony, have made
significant impacts on their respec-
tive teams in only one year.
But he also noted the difficulty
in a program recovering from such
a loss.
Donovan also pointed out the
adjustment period many first-year
collegiate players encounter could
injure an NBA prospect's stock.
"I think it creates unrealistic
expectations for a young man,"
Donovan said. "I don't care if it's
high school to college or college to
the NBA. Anytime you change lev-
els and the competition changes,
there's always a period of adjust-
ment."
While the coach admitted he
couldn't offer a perfect solution,
Donovan pointed to baseball's
policy as a preferable example.
High school baseball players
have the option of jumping to the
big leagues immediately. However,
once a player has signed with a
college, he must remain there for
three years.
"Selfishly, the best thing for our
game would be a situation like
baseball," Donovan said. "I think
that will make it a little easier for
us transition-wise.
"But at the same point, it's not
fair to a young man that has the
option to leave after his freshman
or sophomore year and can make a
lot of money to maybe change the
lifestyle of his family."


At 60, Spurrier shouldn't have to deal with South Carolina mess


There was a day not so long ago when
South Carolina landing on probation
equaled a page seven story, buried
somewhere between UCF football and the
NHL.
But when the NCAA announced the
discovery of ten violations under Lou Holtz
throughout a three-year period, the interest
in Gainesville exploded.
About five hours northeast of town, Steve
Spurrier hides under his USC visor to escape
the scorching sun blazing on a ritzy South
Carolina golf course.
Today the 60-year-old Spurrier, once
crowned "Wonderboy" in Gainesville, is old
enough to utilize many senior citizen golf
discounts.
You'd expect a man like Spurrier to retire
at 60 and play golf, drive to the beach and

drool at girls in bikinis, or do whatever it is
retired millionaires do.
Instead, you can turn on the TV and find
Spurrier wearing a red Gamecocks vest. He
looks much more weary these days, worn
out with the. season still more than a month
away.
The first summer of Spurrier's seventh
decade hasn't been so kind to the ol' ball
coach. After watching several of his players
run afoul with the law, Spurrier must deal
with the violations.
No, South Carolina won't be slapped with
the most serious penalties. Spurrier and Co.
have requested two years of probation and a
minor reduction in scholarships.
But it's painfully obvious the Gamecocks
are far from competing for a SEC title, some-
thing USC has never accomplished.

Meyer, Steve Spurrier and off-the-
field issues in college sports in the
first of a two part interview series.

Steve, buddy, pal,
legend, what are you
doing in Columbia?
You once laid claim to
king of college football,

more feared than Napoleon's sword.
Some say it's Spurrier's enormous ego,
desperate to prove that he can single-hand-
edly resurrect a program like he did at Duke
and UF (shhh, we'll pretend the NFL coach-
ing gig was a dream or something).
Let's get real. If South Carolina wins the

WNBA and MLS game on the same day.
Some will argue that Spurrier found him-
self in a similar situation when he became
UF's head man, but the talent-rich state of
Florida seemed to be waiting for the Age of
Spurrier. History doesn't repeat itself, not
like that.
So why, at Spurrier's age, would he want
to take over a program that's a long-term in-
vestment? Even Pat Riley, also regarded as a
fading legend, will only accept a coaching gig
likely to result in a shiny championship ring.
Spurrier may claim he balked at the UF
job because he wanted a new challenge, but
do you really believe he would rather coach
South Carolina than a familiar UF team
loaded with talent.
In all likelihood, Spurrier never expected

AA: Do you have an opportunity to golf often?
BM. I thought when I moved to Florida that I
would eolt a lot, but I haven t been able
to get our much. But I golf once a month
anyway.

AA. When you arrived in Gainesville, were you
surprised at the enthusiasm surrounding UF
sports?
BM: Well, actually, I knew it was one of the top
overall programs in Ihe country. I measure
that not so much by football, which a lot
of schools have, but by the depth or the
program especially women's sports I
was verve impressed coming in by the qual-
ity of the swimming and diving team, the
women s soccer team, the gymnastics team
and the volleyball team. Women's basket-
ball had a rough go. but I knew it was a good
program.

AA: What about just the overall fan support?
60,000 fans showing up to a spring game.
that's a lot.
BM: I've never seen anything like it. At most
places-including Michigan, which is a
pretty fair football school-never would
spring sports and the spring game have
the kind of attraction that it does here.
Many schools are doing away with the
spring game. Obviously that wouldn't work
here given the fan interest in making it
happen. But I realized a number of things.
First, last fall going through a coaching
search win a.11 the help that I received, I


h realized there's a lot of
people paying attention
II_ to what's going on with
rn football. And generally
II II once Coach Meyer came
and seeing the enthu-
e n siasm outpour for him,
1che I realized we were in a
different place.

AA: How strange is it hir-
ing Urban Meyer twice, and what's so special
aoout n.m?
BM: I remember the last time I saw Coach
Meyer before I came to Florida. Utah played
Southern Mississippi in the Liberth Bowl
on New Near's Eve day. The n6i.t morning I
was checking out of the hotel at 7 a.m. and
Urban was down at the lobby. We hugged
and I said, "go get 'em. Urban." I figured
that was it. Then, the idea of us hiring him
[at UF| never even got in my head. It was
Jeremy Foley who really decided that s the
person we wanted. BItL I knew Urban. I knew
his values are what a coach ought to have.
He s family list and he lakes care ot his
athletes the way any c:ach would want his
atnletes to ne taken care of. He also loves
the university. He will never do anything to
embarrass the university. Most of the people
now hali: become familiar with now he be-
haves and now important the university is
to him. We're lucky to have an Urban Meyer
at the University of Florida, any university ,
would be.

AA: Are you troubled by the increase in off-the-
field incidents in college sports?
BM' Yes, I am. I think it was one of Urban's pri-
orities both at Utah and here that in order
to be a champion you ve got to live right off
the field. You've got to perform well in the
classroom as well as on the field It was
something I knew would be a nignil impor-
tant issue for him. I don t Know how these
tiversiies can look thernsel.es in the mir-


ror with all the stuff that's going on.
AA: What about in pro sports? What went
through your head when you saw the
Pistons-Pacers brawl back in November?
BM: That was a disgrace to athletics. A lot of
that had to do with alcohol. You saw the
beers that were flying around. I've been to
the Palace of Auburn Hills and it's a great
facility. But it's a pro atmosphere with lots of
alcohol, and the crowd sort of gets worked
up over that. I don't think it helped college
sports or pro sports at all.

AA: Is there something that can be done?
Obviously they're not going to ban alcohol at
pro sporting events.
BM; I think it's had a sobering effect on every-
one when they saw just how out of control it
was. I'd be surprised if it happened again. I
think the NBA has really made it clear where
the line is. and you shouldn't cross that line.
Maybe that line wasn I as clearly marked
before this as it is now I think it will take
care of itself.

4A. Switching gears a ont. Steve Spurrier is a
legend at UF. but now he's a rival. Is he still
a Gator?
BM: I think Steve will always be a Gator. He
still has a home here in Gainesville and he
says ne wants to come here to retire. I wish
he would have come nere to retire sooner
rather than later ilaugnsi. I do think we're
going to have some spirited competition
now that he's at South Carolina, but at the
end of the day Steve Spurrier is and always
will be a Gator.

AA: Are you looking forward to the game in
Columbia?
BM I'm rot going. I don't do away games. I
think the rivalry will heat up and I think
it will be good for college sports. I know
Coach Meyer's looking forward to it, and I
bet Coach Spurrier is looking forward to it
as well.


#ABRAMSON, from page 19


UF to find a better coach than him (what? That's blasphemy
in the Book of Steve).
UF did it right. At 40, Urban Meyer could be Spurrier's son
(adopted, of course-they don't exactly appear biologically
related).
In the last few years, Meyer led an unheralded Utah team
to a Fiesta Bowl championship. Spurrier led Redskins owner
Daniel Snyder to the insane asylum (or was it the other way


around?)
But enough Urban praising and Spurrier bashing, because
Spurrier could have been a solid No. 2 choice for the UF job.
Spurrier can flat out coach in the college level, and he de-
serves better.
There weren't many high profile job openings this season
- I can't picture Spurrier being an ideal fit in Catholic South
Bend. Talk about the odd couple.
But how about, dare I say it, the Florida State job next
season. Bobby Bowden's time is up, he's old enough to be
Spurrier's dad (possibly not adopted, in an eerie Darth Vader-
Luke Skywalker sort of relationship).


Imagine what the 01' Ball Coach could do in Tallahassee.
Recruiting in South Carolina is a daunting task, especially
with Clemson in the mix. The high school talent in South
Carolina and Florida isn't even comparable.
And there will be other jobs available. Another Texas loss
to Oklahoma could mean the inevitable oust of Mack Brown.
I 'know the golfing in South Carolina is second to none, but
if Spurrier really wanted to coach this late in his life, why not
aim for the greatest reward of all a second national title.
For now, Spurrier and the 'Cocks will remain page one
news around the SEC, especially in Gainesville.
But for how long?
