Faculty union wins fight
By STEPHANIE GARRY
Alligator Staff Writer
After nearly three years and legal battles
costing more than $50,000, advocates for UF's
faculty union seem to have won a final victory
against UF, the last of Florida's 11 state univer-
sities still holding out against the union.
"This should be the end of the line," said
Kim Emery, vice president of the UF chapter
of the United Faculty of Florida. "I think
everybody's relieved. It's a really important
victory for faculty rights."
UFF filed with the Public Employees
Relations Commission in May to .force the
UF Board of Trustees, the university's highest
governing body, to work with the union and
return bargaining rights to its faculty.
After about four months the decision came
It states that the union's membership will
remain the same and that it has been the certi-
fied representative of some university faculty
throughout UF's resistance since 2003.
"There are no longer legal avenues. I
mean, this is it," said Tom Auxter, statewide
president of UFF. "I think they (UF adminis-
trators) realize that it's a losing battle and it's
just pointless to continue this any longer."

O'Connor speaks at law school
* THE JUSTICE ADVOCATED
FOR A FREE JUDICIARY.
-By DIANA MAZZELLA
U.S.' Supreme Court Justice
Sandra Day O'Connor praised the
new facilities .of UF's Levin College
of Law at its Friday dedication, but
she alspoemphasized the importance
of keeping the judiciary branch
apart from political wranglings.
"The building is beautiful, and
with the new high-tech classrooms
and the additional library space, the
law school is well equipped to meet
the demands of contemporary legal
education," she said.
Her audience included Florida
Supreme Court justices, members
of the Florida Board of Governors
and UF Board of Trustees as well as
other federal, state and university
officials, college alumni, professors
and students. While a release said
that 1,000 tickets were handed out,
the Associated Press reported about
500 people in attendance.
O'Connor said she wanted to
concentrate on "one important use
of the information that students
will receive as they use the library
here, and what role the students i\ ill
pla\ whether they know it or not in
maintaining individual hberty and
the rule of law"
"Now, judicial indepen-
dence is hard to define,
but if I may coin a phrase,
I know judicial indepen-
dence when I see it."
Sandra Day O'Connor
U.S. Supreme Court Justice
Her primary focus was the
importance of keeping the judicial
branch free from political pressure.
"If you believe ...' that the courts
are important guardians of constitu-
tionally guaranteed freedoms in our
common law system, you know that
the system breaks down without ju-
dicial independence," she explained.
"Now, judicial independence is
hard to define," she said. "But. if I
may coin a phrase, I know judicial
independence when I see it."
O'Connor announced July 1 she
would step down from her seat on
the court, but after Chief Justice

the college's dean.
"I think everything that she said is
of enormous value to everyone, par-
ticularly law students," said Juan E.
Perea, a constitutional law professor
with the college for 15 years.
Though the law school has "ex-
cellent" faculty and students, its
facilities had interfered with day-
to-day education, he said, citing that
the school has had only four major
construction changes in almost 100
years of existence.
The new $25 million building
project took about two years and
funds came from the university, the
state and more than 600 private do-
nors, said Patrick Shannon, associate
dean of administrative affairs.
The facilities include the Lawton
Chiles Legal Information Center and
18 new classrooms.
Kathie Price, associate dean for
library and technology, said the
center formerly had no group study
rooms, whereas now it has 13.
Students used to have to study at
the shaded picnic tables surround-
ing the law school, she said.
"Our faculty and students sac-
rificed a great deal during the past
two years," Price said.
Though the students have a
freshly carpeted and brightly lit li-
brary now, they-had to go to Butler
Plaza to access the center's approxi-
mately 600,000 volumes before the
renovation, said Rick Donnelly, as-
sociate director of the center.
UF President Bernie Machen
hailed the renovation and addition as
an enhancement to the university.
"Today, we take another step
in the university's steady progress
toward being ranked among the
nation's finest universities," he said.'
O'Connor ended her remarks
with an optimistic warning.
"We must be ever vigilant against
those who would strong-arm the ju-
diciary into adopting their preferred
policies," she said. "We can't just
trust the courts to protect them-
selves. For one thing someone has to
people those courts on both sides of
the bench, and those someones are
some of you."

UF's 'bike guy' keeps students spinning
By ELIZABETH HILLAKER
Alligator Contributing Writer
Wheels spinning, air pump humming and
grease everywhere, he works diligently in the
heat of the day to fix the primary mode of
transportation for many students.
With his rolled-up right pant leg, he has the
typical look of a serious bicyclist.
His name is Chas Robles, but you might
know him simply as "the bike guy."
Robles works at the Student Government

where free bike repair is provided for UF stu-

said. "I love bikes; I'm able to be outside, listen

Minority recruitment chief concern at Trustees meeting
* PRES. MACHEN BELIEVES
IT IS A BARRIER TO BECOM-
ING A TOP 10 UNIVERSITY.
By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Although UF is making strides
toward becoming a Top 10 public
research institution, the univer-
sity still needs to make various
improvements before that goal
can be met, UF President Bernie
Macheri said Friday morning.
Concerns about the school's
and branding campaign were
among the chief issues that sur-
faced during Machen's address
to the Board of Trustees, UF's
highest governing body.
The president's report covered
such topics as Hurricane Katrina
relief and UF's national advertis-

representation at UF.

creased from 658 to 731.
"I think [the increase] shows a
move in the right direction, albeit
small," Machen said.
He also expressed concerns
with UF's minority student en-
rollment, pointing out that the
number of black students in this
year's freshman class has dipped
slightly since last year.
However, Machen added

Switch of fund allocation shakes up SG politicos
* CRITICS LAMENT THE LACK OF
STUDENT INPUT IN THE PROCESS.
By JUSTIN RICHARDS
The decision to spruce up the Reitz
Union, rather than revive UF's termite-eaten
Bandshell, lacked the student input typically
involved in the funding process.
"No one consulted me about making this
decision," Student Government Productions
Chairman Joey Van de Bogart said. "I
would've liked to have been asked."
Van de Bogart's group sponsors entertain-
ment events.at venues like the Bandshell.
Though authority over the tuition-funded
allocation typically rests with the UF adminis-
tration, officials say advice from relevant stu-
dent groups should be strongly considered.
"Throughout everything we do, we've tried
to ensure that there is a level of student involve-
ment and input in the decision-making pro-
cess," Dean of Students Gene Zdziarski said.
In 2002 then-Vice President for Student
Affairs James Scott set up a committee com-
posed of student leaders and administrators
to discuss possible recipients of the tuition-
funded Capital Improvement Trust Fund.
The state fund is allocated to public uni-
versities every three to five years when a large
sum of money accumulates.
The committee brainstormed options
including the Bandshell, the International
Student Center and University Police.
Two years later $13.6 million in CITF
money became available to UF.
Then-Student Body President Jamal Sowell
held several focus groups with student leaders
to determine the best options for the student
body, Senate President Diane Kassim said.
Kassim was Senate pro-tempore at the time.
During his Spring 2005. election campaign,
Student Body President Joe Goldberg criti-
cized Sowell for leaving Reitz Union funding,
which is typically included, off the list.
The original requests were approved by
a series of authorities first, the Board of,
Trustees, UF's highest governing body, then
the Board of Governors, which oversees
the State University System, and finally the
The revised list must go through that pro-
cess again, delaying the payoff until next year's
legislative session ends.
Student The recent decision
Government to send the Bandshell's
$1.5-million portion to
the Reitz Union was made jointly among
Goldberg, Vice President for Student Affairs
Patricia Telles-Irvin and UF President Bernie
Machen, Goldberg said.
Associate Vice President for Student Affairs
Mike Rollo said students had input because
they elected Goldberg, and he was involved
in the decision.
"The (UF) president gets to decide. The
students don't make the decision. The students
advise," Rollo said. "It's our expectation the stu-
dent body president talks to other students."

Goldberg said he consulted the SG ex-
ecutive committee, which consists of Kassim,
Senate Pro-Tempore John Boyles, Student
Body Treasurer Lindsay Cosimi and Student
Body Vice President Joyce Medina.
SGP Vice Chairman Matt Jones said
Goldberg "sought no input from SGP's leader-
ship." Jones said he first heard the decision at
the end of Tuesdays Student Senate meeting.
"He brought it up at the end of the meet-
ing and said, 'Hey, I just want to let you guys
know we're moving this $1.5 million.' He
wasn't asking us. He was telling us."
Rollo said he was a proponent of the
Bandshell's renovation, but the Union became
a higher priority.
"Nothing sinister happened," Rollo said.
"This is a very normal process."
The last time CTFF funds were reallo-
cated was in the '70s when the Stephen C. 0'
Connell Center was built, Rollo said.
He said the Rion Ballroom, which may be
remodeled with the funds, can charge admis-
sion unlike the open-air Bandshell.

Sigma Nu Fraternity returns to UF
By KYLIE CRAIG
With tents set up by Lake Alice, Sigma
Nu Fraternity's 40 members put their best
feet forward this semester without the
glamour of a big house on Fraternity Row.
The organization, fresh off a five-year
hiatus from UF, made its comeback last
Spring and celebrated its first Fall recruit-
ment this year.
After financial difficulties, stemming in
part from a sexual-assault complaint against
the chapter and what Sigma Nu National
Director of Expansion and Recruitment
Russell Hammond called a lack of "strong
manpower," the fraternity voluntarily left
UF in 2000.
In the Spring the fraternity rejoined
the Interfraternity Council as an associate
member. Next year IFC will vote to deter-
mine whether the organization will receive
full membership status.
Though unsure of when that would hap-
pen, Hammond said the national headquar-
ters always planned on Sigma Nu returning
"It was more like, 'Let's take a step away,
let things go inactive, and we'll get things
started in a couple years,'" he said.
Hammond added the fraternity "didn't
want to step on anyone in the
Greek IFC's toes."
iOfe Sigma Nu's return may not.
have been possible without the
help of chapter President Brian Wehle.
Upon transferring from UCF, Wehle
heard of a possible recolonization and of-
fered to head the comeback at UF.
"When I transferred UCF got in touch
with nationals," Wehle said. "It just kind of
snowballed from there."
Sigma Nu was able to recruit in the
Spring and rounded out the year with
nearly 40 members.
However, the more competitive nature
of Fall recruitment proved to be more of a
"I knew it was going to be really difficult,
and not having a house, of course, makes it
a lot more difficult," Wehle said.
Kappa Sigma Fraternity is renting Sigma
Nu's house but will move out in May, so the
fraternity can call it home for the first time
Sigma Nu Rush Chairman Josh Jackson
said he was glad the fraternity attracted the
guys who don't need a house.
"The guys that joined were the ones
dedicated to our mission, to our goals and
what we stand for," he said. "We know the
guys we have now are truly dedicated and
truly invested in this."
UF sophomore Joey Sciarrotta, 19, said
after reading an article about the fraternity
in the Alligator last Spring, he researched
Sciarrotta said the challenge of moving
back into the house and building up the
organization was appealing as well.
"Knowing that we have to work for
something lets me know we all have to
work together as a team," he said.
Hammond said he looks forward to
Sigma Nu's members deciding what they
want to be known for as Sigma Nu at UR.

FEMA director shouldn't
O officials have taken to calling every criticism of New
Il Orleans relief efforts a cheap shot in "the blame game."
But now they've started a blame game of their own.
The federal government has decided to remove FEMA
Director Michael Brown from rescue efforts in New Orleans, in
the most humiliating reprimand of recent times.
But while Brown has left the center of devastation, he will
return to Washington with his job intact.
So let's get this straight. Brown isn't competent enough to
deal with exactly the kind of disaster FEMA was created for, but
he's OK to continue to run the agency.
Why do they even bother?
He is needed to deal with potential disasters, according to
Michael Chertoff, the Homeland Security secretary who made
Chertoff cited all those brewing hurricanes in the Atlantic.
They could hit us, and apparently we need Brown in an office,
waiting for his time to go to a future disaster area.
That way he can be sent home again.
The Editorial Board isn't fooled. We don't think Bush is inef-
ficient enough to make a move of such glaring contradictions.
Brown is a goner as soon as the fiasco calms down.
Bush can't fire such an important figure in the middle of
relief efforts. That could lead to further accusations that Brown
was hired purely because of his political connections. This way
officials can pretend Brown is being punished simply for his
response in this situation. Scapegoating is a tricky business.
But seriously, if you're going to do it, do it.
Removing Brown and officially recognizing Coast Guard
Vice Adm. Thad W. Allen is purely a political move. Allen al-
ready has been helping, and probably managing, the efforts.
But why did the feds send in Brown at all?
In the past the FEMA director stayed in Washington, coor-
dinating efforts. Even after the Twin Towers fell, Allen was the
main man in New York.
Brown doesn't know how to organize emergency efforts,
mostly because he's never had experience with it. Even if we
forget all the padding on his resume, it still looks pretty naked.
This guy was one step behind the nation at every turn.
Massive flooding? Violent looting? Dead bodies? He denied it
every step of the way.
FEMA would do well without Brown's lack. of guidance.
But it's not only Brown. The system's been broken for years.
We can't let this political move turn our eyes away from all
the other mistakes made at every level of government.
From New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin all the way to Bush,
this operation was an incredible mess. FEMA is just one failure.
Efforts before and after the hurricane were abysmal.
Everyone in the chain of command should be held responsible.
Learning from this situation is paramount.
Obviously, communication was poor, and decisions were
reckless. How will we know what caused such an error?
Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist thinks the answer is a con-
gressional board formed to investigate what went wrong.
Congress is responsible for the most recent structural change
in FEMA; they voted to put it under Homeland Security. Frist
apparently has never heard of conflict of interest.
In the end, this board will cost money and solve nothing.
So why doesn't the government actually try to fix its mis-
takes? If lawmakers only go for the political angle, this is bound
to happen again.
In any case boards are useless at this stage of the game.
Nothing is going to be fixed before the relief efforts are over.
We need an investigation just not right now.
In the meantime let's not forget that this is a complicated
crime, and everyone is a suspect. One fallen man won't clear a
government's conscience of the deaths of many.

Sept. 11 a reminder of war on terror
s officials in New Orleans pick up the pieces of a'
broken city, another anniversary of the falling of
the Twin Towers passed Sunday without much
Many Americans seem tired of being told to "never
forget," and considering the unfolding aftermath of
Katrina, I can't exactly blame them. I also suspect some
cynics on the left have come to view "never forget" as a
partisan war cry for the Bush administration.
But there's a reason to keep that Sept. 11, 2001 bumper
sticker plastered on your car's rear fender, and it's not for
the sake of being sentimental.
The war on terror has really just begun. Do we have
the passion to keep it up if we forget why we started?
Our leaders seem willing to keep up the fight, but
many Americans frustrated by missteps in Iraq are losing
the stomach for a century-long war against an increas-
ingly ambiguous concept.
The war is four years old, and casualties have been
mounting. The U.S. death toll in the Middle East creeps
ever closer to 2,000, while terrorist attacks in Britain and
Spain have claimed more than 200. Intervention in Iraq
has placed countless civilians at the mercy of fascist
forces aiming to topple the democratic government.
Such trying times are almost enough to make one
yearn for the '90s, when the most interesting news items
were the O.J. Simpson trial and Tonya Harding.
But perhaps the '90s seemed so peaceful because
Americans were so eager to shirk global responsibility.
America's blunders began during the last decade
when George Bush Sr.'s administration urged Shiites
and Kurds to revolt in Iraq during the Gulf War and then
swiftly abandoned them. The blissful ignorance contin-

The casualties we have suffered during our ambitious

America unwilling to shoulder its share of responsibility
for promoting democracy and human rights abroad.
But more importantly the casualties mask our suc-
Thanks to American intervention, Afghanis can dream
reasonably of turning their broken capital, Kabul, into a
glitzy Dubai. Our continued presence in Iraq has assured
that, no matter what the outcome of the constitutional
process, al-Qaida and radical Sunnis will never suc-
ceed in turning back the clock and resurrecting another
Taliban or Saddam Hussein.
Americans also have the luxury of remembering Sept.
11, 2001 as -only one day of truly alarming terrorist at-
tacks since the war began. Whether our good fortune in
so far avoiding a second and more devastating attack is
either a blessing of luck or due to the administration's
policies, we cannot be sure. I suppose it is a combination
of the two.
So do not be eager to forget this anniversary and the
reason why we departed from a foreign policy of negli-
gence and timidity. Do not lose heart in the face of casual-
ties when they are accompanied with increasing success.
The suffering caused by Katrina may be the only thing on
our minds right now, but a faulty memory may cost us
even more dearly on the road ahead.

In Thursday's Alligator, Matthew

Slier: Best of defense unseen Decision not a surprise for faculty members
GATORS, from page 1
feeding Wynn and the previously-
unproven running game.
Wynn provided all the offense
Meyer needed in the first half, rush-
ing for 82 yards and scoring all three
of the team's touchdowns. Though
the running game took a step forward
in the first half, the passing game
took a step back. Quarterback Chris
Leak passed for just 66 yards, missed
open receivers and fumbled away the
Gators' first turnover of the season.
"The receivers were definitely
frustrated in the first half," Jackson
said. "I know I can get open on any-
body in the country, so not getting the
ball is discouraging."
Leak rebounded, passing for 153
yards in the third quarter, leading UF
to three straight touchdown drives.
"We demand perfection, and it
doesn't always come early on," Leak
said. "That's why you have to be pa-
tient and let the game come to you."
Against an overmatched team
like Louisiana Tech, the Gators had
the luxury of time to develop their
offense. Defeating Tennessee will not
be as simple.
"This week, the switch is getting
flipped," Meyer said. "The checkers
are going to be equal so we can't af-
ford the same errors."
In addition to Leak's turnover, the
Gators had three fumbles and nine
penalties for 85 yards against the
Bulldogs. One positive for the Gators
has become the defense, which Meyer
lauded after the game.
"At no time did

"We played well, but you have not

more linebacker Brandon Siler said.
"The best brings out the best, so when
we face a great team like Tennessee,
you'll see us play great too."
UNION, from page 1
And the UF chapter of the
union has a bargaining team
ready to go, she said..
"We're anxious to get mov-

Union advocates have pre-
dicted this moment all year.
In February an appeals court
ruled in favor of the union and
traditional bargaining units in a
very similar case involving the
faculty unions at FSU and UWF.
In July a state hearing officer
recommended that the employ-
ees' commission decide in favor
of the union. Later that same
month the trustees filed three
exceptions to the recommenda-
tion and requested to make an

and denied UF an oral argument.

continued to fight union recog-
nition because it wasn't sure the
commission would side with the
"Some people may have
thought so, but there wasn't that
guarantee," Orlando said, add-
ing Machen wasn't necessarily
opposed to the union.
"He wanted to have the entire
campus have a say in what the
unit was," he said.
At issue was which UF faculty
members should be represented.
The historical bargaining unit,
established by the commission
in 1976, did not include profes-
sional schools such as the Levin
College of Law and the medical

Bittersweet tourney for UF
By DAN TREAT
Alligator Writer "
Prior to this weekend, UF coach Mary Wise
said that the three-match stretch her team was
facing was going to be one of the toughest the
Gators had ever faced.
While that may have been just a prognosti-
cation, the statistics were there to back up her
words. UF's consecutive matchups with No.
13 Texas A&M, No. 8 USC and No. 19 Notre
Dame marked the first time that the Gators
had faced three top-25 teams in three consecu-
tive days in Wise's tenure.
And although the weekend may have end-
ed on a sour note Sunday, the Gators got what
Wise ultimately wanted out of the weekend: a
chance to improve.
UF (7-1) was defeated in three dose games
(30-28, 31-29, 30-28) by the Fighting Irish
Sunday, a team that Wise described as a legiti-
mate Final Four contender.
"This was a match against a team that's got
a chance to be in the Final Four," Wise said. "I
believe in how good Notre Dame. is, because
they have all the pieces. You can just see them
oozing with experience."
The Gators first straight-set loss in four
years may jump off the page, but it shouldn't
overshadow their first two matches of the

It seems like another lifetime, but two years

of speed and power. He was a true freshman
Imagine that same player, two years older,
stronger, matured, quieter...
OK, let's not get carried away, because
wasn't it Ron Zook that crushed UAB 51-3 in
his debut before he became, well, Ron Zook?
There're still so many questions surround-
ing this team but little time to solve most of
the puzzles. You can count down the hours
until Florida's true season begins (if you're
reading this at noon, you're really missing out
on prime tailgating property because UF vs.
Tennessee kicks off in 128 hours).
Now that I'm officially awake after sleep-
ing through that uninspiring game against
the Techsters, I plan to stay awake for the
entire 128 hours analyzing and breaking down
the biggest game in Gainesville since that
dark December night in 2001 when another
Tennessee team sent Steve Spurrier packing.
My 128 hours should fly by, because there's
plenty to analyze and many reasons to be wary
that, by this time next week, UF will be the
clear-cut favorite to reach the SEC title game.
For much of the game against Louisiana
Tech, it looked like Urban Meyer's Spread 'n' 7s
Shred offense had been temporarily renamed
Run 'n' Snooze.
Chad Jackson was getting less airtime than
Marion Jackson (the forgotten member of the
Jackson Five), and Chris Leak's feet provided
more scoring than his arm.
And you know what? I'm giving Meyer
the benefit of the doublit. Perhaps the true,.

Maybe much of the Rev. Meyer's Holy

lack of colossal passing statistics against

revolves around the run and he's smart to
stick with the running game as his weapon of

UF CROSS COUNTRY
Young runners help
Gators sweep titles
By BRIAN STEELE
Never tell a child what they are
not allowed to do.
Especially if that child runs cross
country for the Gators, because he or
she apparently will not listen.
Both men's and women's cross
country teams ran their way to
victories Friday morning at the
Mountain Dew Invitational.
Not only did the men win their
meet, they clinched the top seven
spots, five of which were freshmen
For the women, their top two
finishers were sophomores Lindsay
Sundell and Kristen Johnson, with
last year's consistent top-finisher ju-
nior Jamie Geissler coming in third
"We had a lot of freshmen girls
that were highly recruited and came
in and did a tremendous job," said
Coach Jeff Pigg. "I think we're going
to do some really exciting things,
and sure enough that stuff is hap-
pening. It's not going to be who
your number one runner is, but it's
going to be that you're getting seven
in before other people do."
Even though he has barely begun
his second season, Henok Lechebo
already recognizes that this is not
the same UF team from last year.
The rest of the nation may soon find
that 0o it as well.
"The statement that was made
today was that our team is really

-is go&g to be really good some day.
Right now, we're probably looking
at top 15 at NCAAs. Even though
they're freshmen, they've been
working really hard in the summer
preparing for this, and everything
looks really promising right now. I
think everybody in our region better
Even with youngsters show-
casing their talent in this meet,
the talent may not have been the
defining aspect in the Gators'

"You feel like a

Lechebo you can help each
other out. [Being
close] keeps your confidence up."
As Pigg mentioned, the added
depth is potentially a major factor
in UF's success' this year, and it
came through with a few surprises
"I wasn't expecting anything,
being in that it was just the first
race and that we have a new team,"
Sundell said. "I was just hoping to
have everyone finish up near the
As for the regional qualifying
match for NCAAs, Sundell said
she had no idea what to expect.
However, there was one thing she

Meyer puts faith in Wynn on fourth-and-goal
WYNN, from page 16
Coach Urban Meyer energizes his players, as De-
Shawn Wynn scores on a fourth-and-goal run.
Apparently a career game is
nothing to boast about.
Busting out his shell physi-
cally, Wynn jump-started the
Gators' offense, taking a pitch
from Leak and rumbling for
50 yards to set the Gators up
at the Louisiana Tech 7. Still,
it would take more than that
to impress Meyer.
"I told him that one doesn't
count," Meyer said. "We came
up with a nice little forma-
tion, and he went untouched
for 50 yards. I could probably
But four runs and 7 yards
later, Meyer became a. be-
liever, pumping his fist at his
redeemed tailback. Later, a
fourth-down touchdown run
solidified Meyer's confidence
"I thought DeShawn
Wynn ran hard," Meyer said.
"The goal-line run where he
dropped his pads was nice."
With the touchdown drive
coming off five consecu-
tive Wynn runs, the Gators'
claimed their first score of
the game Wynn's first
since a three-touchdown
performance against Middle
Tennessee State in 2004, eight

trick, reeling in a 24-yard pass
from Leak for only the second
touchdown reception of his
career and the first since 2003
against Florida A&M.
"He's a versatile guy," Leak
said. "He's like a Fred Taylor
or a 'LaDainian -Tomlinson.
He can do all those things,
and that's what we try to let
Still, Meyer isn't about
to declare Wynn a Pro Bowl
starter. He's just glad to see
his bruising back do what he's
"He deserved an oppor-
tunity to play," Meyer said.
"He's a very talented player.
I was very pleased with him.

Women of Troy since a four-game triumph in the
1998 NCAA Tournament.
Keeping with the theme of career highs, Jane
Collymore had two in the match, setting a new ,
standard of 30 kills while tallying a total of 36
Wise admitted that after a match that carried
that level of intensity, she was concerned that her
team might not have been as sharp on Sunday.
"Truly, I've got to tell you, I was concerned
about a USC hangover," Wise said. "How was
our team going to respond after an emotional five-
game win, and this team showed so much heart.
"I think we've had some Gator teams in the
past that might not have showed that. I think you
still end up at a 3-0 win by Notre Dame, but these
games wouldn't have been dose."
Despite coming up short on Sunday, Wise was
still ultimately satisfied with her team's perfor-
mance over the weekend.
"I think there's a gap between Notre Dame and
Florida right now," she said. "It's in experience, it's
in talent, but I think our team has so much to work
on, and we are a much better team having played
"If you told me going into this that we could
come away 2-1, with the competition we played, I
would've said TI'd be thrilled.'"

Wynn lets game do talking
By BRYAN APP
Alligator Staff Writer
Lever playing, never talking, junior tailback
DeShawn Wynn had Gator Nation never knowing,
rushing himself into obscurity.
-Battling a groin injury and an underachieving
reputation, the back who busted onto the scene with
a 100-yard game at Miami as a redshirt freshman in
2003 faded into irrelevance behind departed tailback
Ciatrick Fason last season. A shunning of the media
and a pseudo-suspension to kick off the Urban Meyer
era evoked more questions of Wynn's character.
Entering UF's game against Louisiana Tech on
Saturday, it seemed like Wynn had some damage
control to do.
"You'd have to ask DeShawn that," said quarter-
back Chris Leak of whether DeShawn had something
to prove against the Bulldogs. "Of course he wanted to
play bad last week, so that was keeping him alive."
Only, that's the problem. Outside
of his teammates and coaches, no-
body knows if Wynn even had a
pulse off the field.
Breaking the century mark for
only the second time his career
with 101 yards and three touch-
downs Saturday, Wynn seemed to
Name have mastered the walk. But the
recluse running back still won't talk the talk, refusing
to speak after UF's 41-3 win against Louisiana Tech.

With early freshman phenom
Megan Kerns still coping with a
meniscus tear that will keep her
sidelined for weeks, the Gators
picked up some solid contribu-
tion from another young player
Ameera Abdullah gave the
No. 12 UF soccer team an early
offensive spark, scoring on a hus-
tle play in the fourth minute of
the match as the Gators defeated
Abdullah received a long cross
pass from senior Jessica Young
on the play and slipped it by
Panthers goalkeeper Erin Kane
for her first collegiate goal.
"Our coaches have been
stressing a lot to get in the box, so
when I saw Jessica kick it down
the line, I just did my best to get
in there," Abdullah said. "[The
defender] went. for it and she
missed it, so I just finished with
my right foot.
"Actually, I was kind of sur-
prised, it kind of just rolled in,"
she said. "I didn't know what to
think after it happened, I was just
really excited and surprised. I'm
just happy I got my first goal."
Abdullah, a nationally sought-
after recruit before signing with
the Gators, has seen plenty of
playing time already this sea-
son. In that playing time, she
has turned heads with her great
speed and dribbling abilities.
"She's really, really danger-
ous," head coach Becky Burleigh
said. "She's got a great left foot,
she loves to take people on [one-
on-one], and she's very, very
dangerous because of that.
"Sometimes you find a really
speedy player, but then they don't
have good touch. She's got it all,
and she's done well for us."
While Abdullah scored early,
the Gators picked up solid veteran
contribution later in the game.
Senior Cherry Pickman added
a goal of her .own in the second
half. Junior Melanie Booth picked
up an assist.
