Gator, Impact parties finish Senate slating
By DAVID COHEN
Public relations freshman Jill Peck said she
wanted to slate with The Gator Party because
her sorority, Delta Gamma, is active in Student
Government's current administration.
"They're really involved in The Gator Party,"
she said. "I know this orte's more Greek."
And she wasn't the only one.
The Gator Party interviewed 118 candi-
dates Tuesday, the final day of slating, bring-
ing the party's total to 222, nearly three-and-
a-half times as many candidates as the Impact
Party, their opposition. Gator will slate for all
46 available Student Senate seats.
Their rivals, the Impact Party, interviewed
about 40 potential candidates Tuesday, raising
their total to 65. Impact will slate for 40 seats.
Gator Party President Laura Gonzalez said
she was very pleased with the turnout.
"I am very happy to see so many people
excited about The Gator Party," she said.
Impact Party spokesman Adam Roberts
echoed Gonzalez's contentment.
"It-could not have ended any better," he
said. "We are very enthusiastic. We cannot
wait to get started."
Both parties were

The Gator Party wrote up what Student
Body President Joe Goldberg called a "good-
faith agreement" between parties to campaign
ethically. The agreement stated, "I shall not
use or permit the use of character defamation,
libel, slander or scurrilous attacks on any can-
didate or his or her personal or family life, nor
shall I use or permit on my behalf misleading
or untrue advertisements.".
Both party presidents signed the agreement.
"We took the initiative to put the campaign
on the right foot," Gator Party spokesman
Thomas Philpot said. "We want to agree to
those standards from the start."
SG Supervisor of Elections Daniel Maland
said no illegal activity was brought to his at-
tention during slating.

Towels carry high price
By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Abill allocating almost $50,000 to the
laundering of 15,000 free towels at the
Southwest Recreation Center passed its
first reading in Student Senate Tuesday.
The Gator Party campaigned on the
issue last Spring with a $25,000 price
"The No. 1 thing I hear all the time
is, 'Where are those towels?'" Student
Body Treasurer Lindsay Cosimi said.
The Gator Party President Laura
Gonzalez said students' re-use of one
towel for many trips to the gym is a
"It's kind of gross that they keep
wiping down the machines with a towel
they have not washed," she said.
Some senators, however, suggested
the money could be spent more wisely.
"This is almost $50,000 which could
be spent elsewhere, like another vehicle
for SNAP or more parking for family
housing," said Sen. Brooke Seidman,
adding that people could bring their
own towels home and wash them.
Senate also approved a $12,266,399
budget for the 2006-2007 period, but it
needs one more reading to be finalized.
To accommodate the budget's growth
spurt, the Senate proposed a 95-cent
increase to students' Activity & Service
Fee. However, the A&S Fee Committee
has yet to confirm that figure.
Sen. Jackie Pace, chairwoman of
the Senate Budget and Allocations
Committee, said the budget's in-
crease is largely due to Florida's new
minimum wage and the recent spike
in fossil fuel prices, which affect

SG's subsidization of student tickets
at the Phillips Center for the Performing
Arts, passed during Summer, took a
$41,400 cut in the budget.
Meanwhile, SG's renewed member-
ship in the Florida Student Association
meant state lobbying fees rose by $34,400.
Because the budget was written
before Supervisor of Elections Daniel
Maland implemented a "secured-site"
online voting method for SG elections,
there is no reduction in the budget's
$49,500 elections line. Online voting
is supposed to de-
crease the cost of
"We're going to
come in drastically
under cost of what
we've been budget-
ed," said Sen. Jared
Pace Hemandez, who
chaired the Senate
Online Voting Committee last Summer.
UF's music ensembles were also cut
from the budget. Cosimi said they may
not meet the standards for fundability
laid out in SG statutes.
The music department should fund
these ensembles, she said.
The budget requires one more read-
ing and a signature to go into effect.
Senators also voted down a resolu-
tion advocating the repeal of a state
law prohibiting vendors from selling
gasoline below cost, which would al-
low vendors to sell gasoline cheaper.
Sen. John Printy said the resolution
could hurt Gainesville's small-busi-

Interim Dean Jill Vames

at 9:30 a.m. expecting to have her
usual Tuesday staff meeting.
Instead, she received a round
of applause and a big surprise-
when Senior Airman Jeffrey Solis
dropped by the College of Health
and Human Performance to
thank her for her support.
Solis presented the interim
dean with an American flag
signed by himself and the 12
other members of his unit spon-
sored by the college during their
six months in Iraq.
"That's really special," Varnes
said, taking, the flag and wiping
tears from her eyes. "Thank you."
Every month, the college fac-
ulty and staff filled two to three
boxes with snacks, playing cards,
books, games and calling cards to
send to the troops in Iraq.
"It's hard to find anything out
in the middle of the desert, so
everything helped," Solis said.

Student Douglas sent an

her son in the most
recent package, and asked him

for the college's support.

Event urges opposition to Roberts' Court nomination
By JESSICA RIFFEL
It was standing room only in
the Civic Media Center on Tuesday
night for a meeting to oppose the
nomination of John Roberts for
Supreme Court chief justice.
The event informed the audience
of about 30 as to why Roberts, a con-
servative, should not be appointed
to the Supreme Court.
"It's important for the president
to appoint, and the Senate to con-
firm, judges who
Around are fair who
Gainesville follow the law
and who aren't
known in their careers for being
extremely right-winged," National
Lawyers Guild member Shelbi Day
said. "The judiciary branch is sup-
posed to be a neutral third party."
Andrea Costello, president of the
Gainesville National Lawyers Guild
chapter, pointed out instances when
Roberts spoke against affirmative ac-
tion, women's rights, the Commerce
Clause of the Constitution, separa-
tion of church and state, and the
She based these allegations on
reports from the Alliance for Justice,
the NAACP Education Fund, the
People for the American Way and the
National Organization for Women.
"This is not a lawyer who favors
the use of federal civil rights laws as
a way to protect the majority of peo-
ple in the United States," she said.
However, President Bush said in
his nomination speech that Roberts
possesses experience, wisdom, fair-
ness and civility and has devoted his
career to the cause of justice.
* To counter Bush's confidence
Costello cited a case in Roberts' pri-
vate practice when he represented
the Toyota corporation.
"He successfully advocated that
Toyota didn't have to provide ac-
commodations under the Americans
with Disabilities Act for a woman
who developed carpal tunnel on the
job," Costello said.
A prisoners' rights lawyer .in
attendance agreed that Roberts'
record showed a lack of protection
"It seems like he takes the side
of the powerful most often, and
that's troubling," said National
Lawyers Guild member Cassandra
Speakers at the event hoped
students and residents would fa-
miliarize themselves with Roberts'
record and take action by contact-
ing senators on the Senate Judiciary
"It's our court, and we really
need to be talking about how to get
it back," Costello said.

While government flubs,
Americans take up slack
Last week the Editorial Board weighed in on the atrocities
plaguing New Orleans and its outlying areas.
Indeed, the hurricane seemed to bring out the worst
in people. Desperation caused looting and violence, while the
local and federal governments fumbled with how to dean up
the fatal mess.
But, today we want to focus on all the non-bureaucratic
good that has emerged since the tragedy.
For all the shortcomings of our political leaders, individu-
als have taken up the slack with unprecedented vigor.
In classrooms all across campus, professors urged students
to donate to the American Red Cross. And thousands of stu-
dents, the biggest cheapskates of all time, actually took that
advice and placed their almost nonexistent money into the
hands of volunteers.
Local and campus organizations sat in the heat all day to
Parents and students alike trudged out to the heart of the
devastation to help in the traumatic efforts.
Businesses pitched in services, money and supplies.
Most relevantly many universities quickly came to the aid
of the area's devastated colleges. All in all, Katrina affected at
least 29 universities, 11 of which are in New Orleans.
UF is taking in some of these students, charging them in-
state tuition, a financial strain that is both significant and sur-
prisingly sympathetic. About $10,000 lie's between in-state and
out-of-state tuition, and UF is already overenrolled.
Other schools have taken it further; since many students
have lost the thread to their finances, some colleges are offer-
ing the stranded students free tuition. FIU, along with seven
other colleges, has offered some students free or severely dis-
So why is the entire country so devastated and moved by
this disaster? Other parts of the world have experienced such
catastrophes, most notably the 2004 tsunami.
While we watch news of those faraway disasters with inter-
est, it's been awhile since our country has been so genuinely
empathic for the victims of such devastation.
When the tsunami hit select groups asked for donations,
but the same feeling just wasn't there. We saw it as a travesty
far from home; it was a cause -we could pick up and drop a
couple months later. We could talk about it with reserve and
logic; now, emotions run high with every utterance of New
This response is different.
We don't just watch the news with the perverted eye we
reserve for car wrecks; we watch it with mounting anger and
depression. Every new development sparks an urge to help
from almost everyone.
It's like Sept. 11, 2001 it's on our own soil. It's not re-
moved; it's in our face. These could be our families. In fact
many Floridians have friends who are residents of the area.
So we're selfish; we only care about our own. That's just
But maybe we can remember in the future the shock and
horror we felt at something so close to home. In Asia families
are still displaced and poverty-stricken but are only remem-
bered at such times as these.
President Bush and New Orleans officials failed in evacuat-
ing the city properly, resulting in the poorest factions being left
behind. Their incompetence is abhorrent.
This hurricane's devastation has revealed the racial divide
of this country. The poorest residents, arid thus the ones left to
die, are predominantly black.
But if our government isn't up to the task, at least American
citizens have shown their competence at helping their fellow
man, no matter his socioeconomic status.

Students' free speech rights threatened
It's one of those ideals almost synony-
mous with being American: freedom
Especially in the world of higher edu-
cation, freedom to vocalize dissent either
in or out of the classroom is practically
inherent to the learning process.
Despite these ideals, a recent review
by a national watchdog group claims that
UF restricts students' right to free speech.
In fact it gave UF the lowest rating pos-
sible on its scale.
Before my banner-waving allies
start marching to UF President Bernie
Machen's doorstep, let's get real.
The Foundation for Individual Rights
in Education was founded to help sustain
students' rights at what its founders be-
lieved were an increasing number of par-
tisan universities. Since then, the founda-
tion has brought several universities to
court, usually after a student complained
that his or her rights were violated.
They've won a number of cases.
So what's so wrong with UF? It got
a "red light" rating, meaning at least one
of its policies "both clearly and substan-
tially restricts freedom of speech."
The foundation further defines
this as a policy that "unambiguously

The foundation's Web site points to
various sections of UF's Student Rights
and Responsibilities and to descriptions
of what qualifies as sexual harassment.
I read each policy. A main issue the
foundation has with Student Rights and
Responsibilities falls on one sentence:
"Organizations or individuals that
adversely upset the delicate balance of
communal living will be subject to disci-
Slightly less than vague? Definitely.
But whether or not the-group will file
suit against UF is open to question
- they've done it before to other uni-
versities in similar situations.
Other than this one question re-
mains: As a student at UF, have I felt
my freedoms restricted? Moreover, if UF
is brought to court over a few words in
its policies, will there be any noticeable
I'd say probably not. In cases like this
generally the only people who come out
winning are the lawyers. What this re-
view does mean is that students need to
be more aware of the way in which the
university can restrict personal liberties.
Will we see deans bolting across
Turlington Plaza to shut down groups?
Maybe not, but blatant displays of cen-
sorship are not the only ways in which
the administration can limit quietly or-
ganizations or people on campus.
What the administration needs to do
is rewrite both policies before they are
used against it.
Universities should harbor free
thought, without ever making stu-
dents feel inhibited for expressing
a personal belief. The foundation's
review should be a wake up call and
a reminder that we as students have
an obligation to scrutinize constantly
the words and actions of our school
Over the last few years, and under
laws like the Patriot Act, we must real-
ize that rights we once took for granted
can be called into question.
And though some might find them

Letter to the Editor
Katrina victims deserve attention, help
I am not black. Nor do I take responsibility
for speaking on behalf of the people ravaged by
the monster Hurricane Katrina.
I am, however, outraged.
I'm outraged at President Bush, the media
and, quite frankly, the scary radicals who de-
fend the president at all costs.
The only story in Tuesday's paper about
the political mess of the past two weeks was a
column by Matthew Melone, who claimed that
liberals are politicizing the tragedy.
All right, Matt. Even if we are, and I would
maintain we are not, we only learned how to do
it from the amazing way 3,000 American lives
were politicized after Sept. 11, 2001, by the Bush
administration. Do you think Saddam Hussein
had something to do with this? Or does Mother
Nature just hate our freedom too?
Melone also said liberals are promoting an
agenda. If trying to deliver food to poor, suf-
fering people and pointing out that they are
society's forgotten is wrong, then I am very
pleased to be wrong.

Campus bike theft spikes in Fall
Alligator Contributing Writer .
With falling leaves come rising rates
of bicycle theft on campus, according to
the University Police Department.
"We see this every Fall semester,"
UPD Lt. Darren Baxley said. "New
students either don't know how to lock
their bike properly or don't even lock
them at all, thus leading to the increase
in bike thefts in the Fall."
Scott Baltz, a UF sophomore, has
had two $500 bicycles stolen on campus
in the past year..
"If I were to give advice to anyone
who wants to keep a bike on campus,
I would tell them to get a bike that they
wouldn't want to have for themselves,"
Baltz said. "I had two nice bikes, but
apparently they are too much of a tar-
get for people who want to steal them.
Now I have a $75 Wal-Mart bike that
I've had no problems with."
Many bicycle thieves target high-
priced bicycles on campus, and the pro-
fessional thieves can defeat most lock-
ing mechanisms, Baxley said, although
he said he believes locking bicycles is
still effective against theft.
Eric Johnson, co-owner of Chain
Reaction Bicycles, 1630 W University
Ave., said he sees at least a dozen
students a week who claim their bi-
cycles or bicycle parts were stolen on
Johnson believes that a sturdy bi-
cycle lock can deter a would-be thief.
He recommends all students buy a
U-lock and coil cable to protect their
UPD recommends that students also
register their bicycles. This increases the
chance that the bicycle can be recovered
and returned if stolen.
"There isn't a whole lot we can do
if the owner doesn't register their bike,"
Baxley said. "Chances are they'll never
see [their bicycle] again."

Gas prices pinch
By JONATHAN HILL
Alligator Contributing Writer
Delivery drivers, many of whom are students
at UF or SFCC, are losing income because they
have to spend more on gas after Hurricane Katrina
severely halted production and delivery of gasoline
in the Gulf of Mexico.
"I had to stop working and basically quit," said
Pierce Parker, a driver for Gatorfood.com. "As far
as compensation, all you could hope for were bet-
Parker is still considering working for
Delivery companies pay their
drivers a fixed delivery fee. Drivers
are solely responsible for the up-
keep of their vehicles and the cost
of repairs that may occur while
Andrew Howard, another driver
for Gatorfood.com, said he spends approximately
$3 more a day on gas because of higher gas prices
after the storm.
"What's the point in staying with a company
when you're not going to get paid more over time?"
Delivery drivers aren't the only ones affected
by rising gas prices. Some students now bike to
campus to counter the problem.
Nathan Kemper, a UF mechanical and aerospace
engineering senior, said he rides his bike as much
as possible to avoid using gas. He said it saves him
time and money and alleviates the hassle of trying
to find parking on campus.

UF upgrades cable TV
UF robot sinks the competition
By CHERYL CLARKE
Alligator Contributing Writer
On-campus residents now
have almost twice as many options
when they spend the night in.
Cox Communications Inc. and
the UF Department of Housing &
Residence Education upgraded
the Housing CATV System from
40 to 73 channels, reflecting the
demands of students who filled
out TV surveys last Fall.
"I have been lobbying for this
for at least the last 10 years," said
Sharon Blansett, assistant director
of Housing for Marketing, Public
Relations & Research.
The cable renovations began-in
the Spring and completed at the
end of July. New channels include
MTV2, Oxygen, The Golf Channel,
Turner Classic Movies, Cox Sports
Television and Bravo.
Cox also offers additional digital
cable packages that include premi-
um and Pay-Per-View channels.
"I think it was a good decision
to get a cable upgrade," said Ari
van den Berg, UF sophomore and
Rawlings Hall resident. "I got the
HBO and digital cable package
also. I like to watch 'Entourage.'"
The Cox upgrade is installed
automatically in- dorm rooms
whether the resident owns a TV
or not. Housing rent increased this
year due to utility charges,. which
includes the Cox Cable upgrade
that, coupled with. telephone
service, comprises 4.3 percent of
students' rent, Blansett said.
"An increase of $75 each se-
mester' was issued
Student this year," Blansett
Life said. "Renovations
received $25, and
$50 went toward in-
creased operational expenses like
utilities, sewage and cable."
When asked about billing com-
plaints by residents, Blansett said
the department is not given that
"All of the marketing and bill-
ing goes to Cox," she said. "The
students are paying for any addi-
tional packages directly to Cox."

"We're just pleased to have found him,

began the process of selecting a new

Zdziarski said. -
Upon his departure Williams' duties
were assigned temporarily to other em-
ployees at the Dean of Students Office.

that," Zdziarski said.

SLATING, from page 1
"No personal complaints have been
brought up to me yet," he said.
However, last year's election was an
entirely different matter. Maland said there
were instances of coercion and intimidation in
which some students were put in uncomfort-
A member of the Elections Commission
feared personal harm at one point, he said.
"That's despicable," he said.
Maland said students were not punished
for last year's infractions but that could
"If someone does something of that sort, I
wouldn't hesitate (to punish them)," he said.
-However, not everyone was pleased with
the slating process. Thursday and Friday, The
Gator Party's slating room was much closer to
the qualifying room, which every participant
is required to enter, than Impact's. On Tuesday
the rooms were somewhat closer.
Impact Party campaign staffer Gareth Kerr
said if he were in Maland's shoes, he would
have allowed equal opportunity for both par-
ties to be close to the qualifying room, which is.
where the candidates make their first impres-
sions about running for Senate.
"Obviously, the closer you are to the quali-
fying room, the more you are seen," he said.
Maland said party representatives picked
the rooms, but in the future he thinks a raffle
could improve the situation.
Roberts said he is hoping one of the main
reasons students chose to slate with Impact
was to change the way the $11 million tuition-
funded Activity & Service Fee budget is spent.
Roberts said one of the last interviews of
the day, political science freshminan Victor Bard,
was right on target with Impact's philosophy.
"It was an amazing interview," Roberts said.
"He was right on track with how we felt."
Economics freshman David Markus, a
member of Alpha Epsilon Pi, said he didn't
know the difference between the two parties
but was slating with Gator.
"It's the party affiliated with my fraternity,"
Finance freshman Brandon Vantuijn said he

Minor slips haunt defensive linemen
'M MCDONALD LEADS REVAMPED;
IMPROVED DEFENSIVE LINE.
By BRYAN APP
Alligator Staff Writer
Adorned with mischievous grins and
each other's jerseys, Steven Harris and
Marcus Thomas turned the heads of re-
porters after Tuesday's practice.
It's just the kind of trick one can
expect from such fun-loving jokesters,
but when Harris and Thomas picked up
the phone late Saturday night, it was no
prank call. Haunted by blown sacks, the
two coped the best way they knew how,
by waking Coach Urban Meyer with a
midnight telephone confessional.
"I was just telling him we could've
done a whole lot better with the D-line,"
Thomas said. "He can expect a lot more
of us next game."
Explained Harris, "We had a couple

few harmless slips necessitate such an

discuss suitable hours for phone calls

Meyer couldn't be happier with the at-

December is 'You've got lazy guys play-

called. "They're not lazy. I think they're
great young men, and they could be a
special group if they keep going."
Just how special? Defensive end
Jeremy Mincey, a first-week inductee to
Meyer's Champions Club, claims that

"That's all we talked about the whole
summer, spring, working on our pass
rush," Mincey said. "Now we have to
work on our run a little more because
they scored on us. But we've worked on
our pass rush a whole lot, and we're tak-
ing a lot more pride in getting sacks."
With an immature group and a
coaching staff in limbo, Mincey said
confidence lacked last season. After
sustaining an off-season makeover,
courtesy of Meyer and his staff, Mincey
claims,. "It's a whole anotherr ball
According to Mincey, the new coach-
ing staff pushed the defensive linemen
in a manner the former regime failed to,
concentrating on strengthening minds
and attitudes rather than just muscles.
"They pushed us mentally," Mincey
said. "It wasn't even the physical battle.
They knew we had talent. It was the
mindset they put us-all in. Instead of
a bunch of boys walking around, now
we all carry ourselves like men. We do
manly things: work hard in the weight
room, go to class. It's just the simple
things that make you a better player."
Overall, Meyer considers the defen-
sive line's transformation in academ-
ics, lifestyle and passion for football
the most drastic and impressive on the

A after Chris Leak's three-touchdown,

UF coach Urban Meyer if this proved the

against Louisiana Tech.
Since then, Meyer has said he will have
a package for true freshman sensation Josh
Portis every week. Portis didn't pass the
ball Saturday, but he ran for 45 yards on
five carries, which was the only thing that
remotely resembled a running game. When
he was out there, you couldn't look away.

Meyer said. "That's

When asked if Portis brings anything to the
game that he doesn't Leak responded with
a mind-boggling, "Like?"
Maybe Portis is a little faster, the re-
porter suggested. Leak didn't understand,
asking what the reporter meant.
"We run the same plays out of the
same offense, so the plays that are called
are exactly the same except for instead of
a running back running the ball, he'll run
the ball," Leak said. "We're calling the same
plays, so I really don't see a difference."
To me, Leak was taking a shot at Portis,
implying that he can only run. It's clear that
Leak is scared of Portis taking some of his
"If the game is... out of hand you always
want your twos to be ready," Leak said.
Except Portis came in with most of the
fourth quarter left and the Gators up 26-7
-19 points is not exactly out of hand.
Portis had 56 more rushing yards than
Leak on five less carries. Portis is better suit-
ed to the Meyer offense. Meyer obviously
knows this since he recruited Portis, but he
also knows Leak is too good to not play.
While it is by no means a quarterback
controversy, it could become one, especially
by next season.
Sure, Leak had a great game, but just
catching a glimpse of Portis makes me
think that he can do what Meyer wants
better than Leak.

Same distracts players from Katrina
By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
For a 30-point underdog, a road game
against one of the nation's top 10 teams
ever seemed so comforting.
Less than two weeks ago, Louisiana
ech coach Jack Bicknell considered a date
vith the Gators at the Swamp anything
ut an escape from a miserable reality. For
earns like the Bulldogs, games like these
usually mean two things: a hefty paycheck
ind a double-digit loss.
Now, with players scrambling to find
oved ones in the harrowing aftermath of
-lurricane Katrina, and others mourning
he loss of friends and family, three hours
>n the gridiron seems like a pretty nice
emedy, albeit a temporary one.
"We're excited about playing that
;ame," Bicknell said. "I think it will be a
dice diversion. There are 120 guys [on this
:eam] and the No. 1 thing they wanted to
nake sure of was that [this game is] tele-
uised back here.
"I know those people are looking for-
hvard to coming over, watching the game
nd seeing their sons. I think it'll be a good
version for everyone."
Ruston, located in the northwest corner
of Louisiana, 330 miles from New Orleans,
didn't feel the wrath of Katrina.
But with seven players on Louisiana
"I know those people are look-
ing forward to coming over,
watching the game and seeing
their sons. I think it'll be a good
diversion for everyone."
Louisiana Tech football coach
Tech's roster residing from the now desert-
ed and decaying city of New Orleans, and
many others from neighboring areas, the
last week has been terrifying and surreal.
At one point, 16 players were unsure
of their families' fate. Quarterback Donald
Allen spent days attempting to contact his
father and grandfather. He didn't find out
they were alive until Sunday
"He said, 'Coach, the weight of the
world, I feel like, has been lifted off my
shoulders'," Bicknell said. "I think that's
the way the team is looking at it now."
While most of the stories echo that of
Alien, not every player enjoyed such a
For Oren Lewis of Waveland, Miss., the
aftermath was bittersweet. His mother,
missing for days, was spared. But his
uncle, sister-in-law and godchild perished.
Lewis, a third-string nose guard, plans
to play on Saturday.
"It was a very sad situation," Bicknell
said. "Thank goodness his mom was okay.
"A lot of our players have lost every-
thing. A lot of their families are up here. It
really hits home.
Bicknell expects many of the Bulldogs'
family members to remain in Ruston
throughout the season. Initially, the fami-
lies were housed at the Thomas Assembly
Center, but most have moved to campus
And while part of the healing process
begins Saturday against the Gators,. the
anguish will remains for months and even

at all. It continues to go on. The people are
still here and they still need to be taken care

it, it's just overwhelming unless you take it

UF to play in Alamodome
* WHILE HURRICANE KATRINA EVAC-
UEES REMAIN IN SAN ANTONIO, THE
AWAMODOME IS NOT BEING USED AS
A SHELTER. THE GATORS WILL PLAY
THERE THIS WEEKEND.
By DAN TREAT
in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, there
were. several early indications that San
Antonio's Alamodome would be used as a
shelter for refugees fleeing the Gulf Coast.
Instead the site of last season's national
volleyball championship will still host
three nationally ranked teams as sched-
uled, including the No. 6 Gators.
"We actually had some concern about
that because some initial reports said that
they were going to use the Alamo Dome
[for a shelter]," UF Coach Mary Wise said.
"But as of [Sunday], from what we heard
over the weekend, the matches will be
played in the Alamodome and there hasn't
been a change."
The trip this weekend will put a human
face on the tragedy for the team, as thou-
sands of people have been displaced by
this natural catastrophe.
"I think that we're definitely going to
realize what's going on," Texas native
Amber McCray said. "It's really going to
bring it a lot closer to home, because we're
kind of far from it now. We've been think-
ing about them and we've talked about
them and had a moment of silence and
prayed for them, so we'll definitely be
thinking about them."
Senior Jane Collymore needed 11
kills in Monday's match against Eastern
Washington to pass Ashley Mullis for
eighth on UF's all-time career kills list, but
finished with just four.
Wise praised Collymore's ability to not
let a shaky offensive night affect how she
performed in other aspects of the game.
"That's what the great players will
do," Wise said. "She didn't let her offense
dictate the rest of her game. She didn't get
as many good looks offensively, but her
serving and her passing, her passing was
outstanding today with some of the digs
"What Jane has shown is that she's
more than a one-dimensional player."
