Officials: Report on UF reactor overblown
Investigators took regularly scheduled tours
By JUSTIN RICHARDS
In response to a recent ABC
News story decrying "gaping se-
curity holes" at university nuclear
reactors that names UF as a cul-
prit, university officials said the
network's coverage was inaccurate
"They really did get some things
wrong, and they really did blow it
out of proportion," UF spokesman
Steve Orlando said.
ABC News quoted Dan Hirsch,
head of the nuclear watchdog group
Committee to Bridge the Gap, say-
ing that a terrorist with "a little bit of
explosives" could wreak radioactive
havoc on UF's populated campus.
"Bin Laden would love to do
something like that," he said.
The network teamed up with the
Carnegie Corp. in New York to put
together groups of college students,
who traveled the country testing
security at on-campus reactors. The
investigators told UF officials they
were prospective students inter-
ested in the nuclear program.
The Nuclear and Radiological
Engineering Department routinely
gives escorted tours of its reactor.
ABC reported that its team was
able to bring large tote bags, which
were not inspected, into a room next
to the UF reactor.
The story neglected to mention
that the reactor is surrounded by
walls 10 to 15 feet thick, totaling 50
tons of concrete, Nuclear Facilities
Director Bill Vemetson said.
He added that the bags were left
in a nearby room, but it was not ad-
jacent to the reactor. Rather, it was in
a separate but linked building.

Student protest meets Kanye visit
By DAVID COHEN
Alligator Writer .
firstname.lastname@example.org l m. .
About 4,811 people attended rapper Kanye
West's concert Thursday night at the Stephen C.
O'Connell Center, and most passed protesters
before they could enter.
About 20 UF College Republicans protested
the concert and said that UF administration was
hypocritical in allowing him to come.
The group held signs that read, "You can't
spell crap without rap!" and "Go home Kanye
- UF doesn't want your racist lies" near the
UF College Republicans Chairwoman Ashlee
Black said her group wanted to defend President
Bush from West's claim that he does not care
about black people.
"He said some things that are awful," she said
of West. "A lot of [his work] is demeaning to wom-
en. We love our president. We are proud of him. We
love our country. And we are proud of it."
James Clinch, a UF civil engineering senior,
was holding the "crap" sign and said he is against
exposing young children to West's "terrible lyr-
"It's really destroying the fabric of our moral
foundation," he said.
Clinch said Vice President for Student Affairs
Patricia Telles-Irvin is being "wildly hypocriti-
cal" for allowing the concert to take place, given
her campuswide e-mail last month regarding the
Alligator's "unacceptable" use of the "n-word"
when West's lyrics are rife with it.
"It gives a bad name to our university," he
said. "Even by letting this go on, they are in ap-
proval of it."
Student Government Productions subsidized
the first 2,000 tickets sold to students at $26, with
all other tickets costing $36.
UF accounting sophomore Daniel Riger said
he supports UF's decision to book West.
"It just makes for an interesting environment,"
he said. "If everybody had the same view, people

* UF GROUP'S NEARLY 50-YEAR-OLD
TOURNAMENT HAS BEEN CANCELED.

Officials at the Southwest Recreation Center
have banned the use of Lake Wauburg for this
Fall's Gator Open, resulting in the cancellation
of the semiannual water skiing tournament
which has taken place at the lake
Stgdent for nearly 50 years.
Lure Although members of UF's
Gator Wake and Ski Club
have participated in the event for decades,
Eric Ascher, sport clubs coordinator at the
Southwest Recreation Center, said not enough
UF students have been involved in the tourna-
ment in recent years.
"I don't want [the Gator Wake and Ski Club]
to be responsible for running a tournament that
they're not running," he said.
The Gator Open hosts waterskiers from all
over the country and is sanctioned by USA
Water Ski, the national, governing body for
organized water skiing.
"We only put on events that are UF-related,"
Ascher said, adding that although USA Water,
Ski was free to relocate the event to non-UF
property, organization officials chose to cancel
the event instead.
While most tournament competitors must
pay a $50 entry fee to compete, Gator Wake and
Water Ski Club members participate for free.

Service organization appli-
cations due today
A new campus organization is
helping UF achieve its 100 Million
Minutes Challenge goal.
Applications are due today for
Service Learning Fellows, an or-
ganization that began this Fall to
help connect professors, nonprof-
it organizations and students.
Based in the Center for
Leadership and Service, the con-
cept of the group is: "Through
the partnership of education
and service, we strive to enhance
what the students learn in the
academic setting to encourage
and promote community aware-
ness," according to its mission
The organization has part-
nered with First Year Florida and
physiology and speech classes,
said Katie O'Neill, Service
Learning Fellows director. She
said her group contacts com-
munity service organizations in
Gainesville, then professors in-
corporate the community service
into their classes.
"We do all the dirty work,"
According to the application,
candidates should be able to
learn a computer program, at-
tend weekly meetings and train-
ing sessions and present informa-
tion to a classroom.
"We have six people now,
and we are looking to expand
to about 15 or 20," O'Neill said.
"The volunteers we are searching
for are select and dedicated."
The hours of community ser-
vice that Service Learning Fellows
volunteers achieve will be added
to the cause of the 100 Million
Minutes Challenge, a combined
effort by UF and Alachua County
to encourage community service
through April 2006.

Survivors, supporters to make strides against cancer
By KATY LAYTON
Alligator Contributing Writer
An 80-year-old breast and uterine cancer
survivor flashed her pink rhinestone toe ring
in the shape of the breast cancer-awareness
ribbon given to her by a fellow survivor for
their big event this weekend.
Betty Hart and her friend, Jackie Secula,
who overcame lung cancer, are just two of the
200 survivors attending Gainesville's second
annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer
Walk on Saturday.
"Be sure you come," Hart said. "You will
find the most wonderful, upbeat people you
will ever meet."
"I want to make a difference. I
think you'll find that with all the

Saturday at Northeast Park, 400 NE 16th Ave.,

team of two or more, said Carla Hill, the com-

Registration is free, but entrants who raise
$100 or more receive an official Making Strides
T-shirt, Secula said.
"You can give as little or as much as you
want," she said.
Making Strides began in 1993 in
Massachusetts, but this is only the second year
the event will be held in Gainesville with a
focus on breast cancer, Hill said.
"It's amazing how much [Making Strides]
has grown in just two years," said Terry
McKenzie, co-chairwoman of the event's
Last year, the event did better than ex-
pected, even though hurricane season caused
the American Heart Association's walk to fall
on the same day. Still, 82 teams, 179 individual
walkers and 122 survivors attended, raising
more than $50,000.
This year, Making Strides has more than 90
teams registered and hopes for 200 survivors
and 1,000 total attendees, Hill said.
About half of the society's goal of $60,000
has been met, as walkers pre-registered
Tuesday during Making Strides' Bank Day
Hill said she expects to continue raising
money even after the event, especially since
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
"I want to make a difference. I think you'll
find that with all the volunteers," Secula said.
"We want to find a cure, and I expect to be here
for a long time and to see it all."
SFCC students may pay to park as early as Summer '06
* AT PRESENT, PARKING ON
CAMPUS IS FREE, BUT RARE.
By ALEXIS LLOYD
Talk of requiring parking decals
at SFCC has circulated campus for
years, but they could be a reality as
early as Summer 2006.
Mention parking to any SFCC
student, and responses are typically
"Parking at Santa Fe is hideous,"
said Kallie Nolan, a sophomore the-
atre major. "You have to park so far
away from everything."
SFCC has continually tried to im-
prove its parking situation over the
past few years. An addition of 500
parking spots in the overflow area
more than a year ago cost the col-
lege almost $500,000. More than 110
parking spots opened this Fall, with
a price tag of nearly $180,000.
The next step to making decals a
reality is in the hands of the college's
"Decals won't alleviate the park-
ing problems in the short run,"
said Daryl Johnston, chief of SFCC
Police. "Students may not see any-
thing tangible right away."
The main benefit of the park-
ing decals, he said, is that they will
provide more accountability for stu-
dents and their vehicles. In addition,
all funds collected from the decals
will go to parking improvements.

ment was unable to remove several

"We have realized the holes our
system has on the ability to contact

beginning of the
semester, police have given out
more than 1,200 parking tickets. The

Rezaei said SG has not yet taken
an official position on the issue.
Rezaei said his concerns are that

price does not increase over time.

concerned about the impact of cost

Culture comes to Southeast
The littlest tailgaters
During one of the first cool October days, UF alumna Sarah Sawyer

By ALEX TIEGEN
Alligator Contributing Writer
Diverse voices from colleges and high
schools will join to strengthen the Asian
American -community and identity in
the Southeast during UF's second an-
nual Southeastern Regional Conference
of Asian American Leaders on Friday and
The conference was organized by the
Asian American Student Union, the South
Asian American Student Union and the
Dean of Students Office, and it has received
support and community sponsors. Between
175 and 200 guests are expected to attend.
Sandy Chiu, AASU president and a
founder of the convention said organizers
had little trouble attracting other schools to
the conference. Registration for the two-day
event ended Oct 12.
"[The conference] was developed last
year to sort of bring awareness about Asian
American issues to the Southeast because
some students last year noticed that there
wasn't this kind of community and network
in the Southeast for Asian Americans," Preeti
Sharma, a conference co-director said.
"We're hoping that various students will
come [this year] and not only share their
experiences but gain a better understanding
of what it means to be an Asian American
person and learn about the ways the me-
dia and dominant cultures perceive Asian
Americans as well as what can be done
about it," she said.
Workshops included in this year's confer-
ence will be divided into three sessions con-
forming to the convention's motto: "Turn It
Up. Educate, Expand, Empower."
Sessions will address Asian American is-
sues like identity, stereotypes in the media
and the arts, civil-rights projects and the role
and perceptions of sexuality.
"Last year, we got some feedback, and
a lot of students said there wasn't a lot of
interaction between students from different
schools," said Michael Wong, conference co-
"This year to fix that we implemented the
peer group system where, before and after
all the workshops, the students get to first
think about what their weaknesses are, as
far as their knowledge of Asian American
"We can talk about what each group
has done on their own campus and
learn from each other."
"Our peer groups will help them decide
which workshops will be most appropriate
for them, so that they can build on their cur-
rent knowledge. After the workshops, they
can come back and share their experiences,
and also reflect, and our facilitators would
help them summarize some good points to
take back to their own campuses and use to
create immediate change."
Community and national leaders or-
chestrating the workshops. will include

dent of the Media Action Network for

lisher of Color Lines Magazines; and Bruce

* THE FESTIVAL OF
NAVARATRI HONORS THE
HINDU MOTHER GODDESS.
By DIANA MAZZELLA
The Hindu Students Council
will honor the Mother Goddess
and her incarnations tonight by
hosting the dances of Garba,
Raas and Bhangra for the Hindu
festival of Navaratri, or nine
It will take place at the India

Most of the dancing will
be Garba and Raas, she said.
Garba, meaning womb, is when
women dance around a lamp
that is meant to symbolize life
in a womb.
In Raas, sticks called Dandias
are used during the dance and
hit together, she said. The event
will end in prayer.
The event is free and open to
the public, she said. Attendees

Though Navaratri ended this

Patel, vice president of the
group. The event is free to the
community and doors will open-

should last until midnight.
It is also a participation event,
Patel said. Last year about 887
It will have the same dances
as the Hindu students' event,
He described it as traditional
Indian folk dance and mentioned
that the association will be em-
phasizing the cultural aspect of
the event instead of a religious
one because the event is funded
by Student Government.
Patel said both Garba and
Raas start out slow and then
become faster. Breaks are sched-
uled between dances.
The association has been
hosting the event for the past six
or seven years, he said.
Durairaj said that people like
that there are two events because
they have two opportunities to-
go. Also, if they can't make one,
there is still another one they
may be able to attend.

UF WebMail overwhelmed under new regulation
By CHRISTOPHER HIATT
Alligator Contributing Writer
Students and faculty trying to
access their UF e-mail accounts
through WebMail may have to find
a different program.
The servers that handle WebMail,
the online e-mail retrieval service
used by UF, are overloaded due to
the increase in demand following
the administrative decision to cancel
e-mail forwarding Oct. 1.
William A. McArthur, a pro-
grammer for Open Systems Group,
which hosts the WebMail service,
said the main problem is that the
increased use of the service was not
properly anticipated following the
Oct. 1 policy change.
"We're in the process of repur-
posing a number of machines to
handle that load," he said.
Stephen Ulmer, a UF system
programmer, said WebMail is un-
dergoing an upgrade that "could be
finished ... in four to six weeks."
UF Coordinator for Computer
Systems Control Frances McDonell
said the problem stems from the
fact that most students access
their GatorLink accounts through
WebMlil. Of the 25,000 to 30,000
unique isers estimated to log on to
GatorL -k accounts per day, almost
70 perce t use WebMail.

Danny Ghltls/ Alligator
Senior Abhilash Trehan sets up his laptop in the Computer Science & Engineering CIRCA lab to check his
e-mail and study. Trehan said he depends on more than one e-mail service.
"WebMail was never meant to
be the primary method students
use to access their GatorLink ac-
counts," McDonell said. "Somehow,
a while back; a mistake was made,
and it was announced that students
should access their GatorLink ac-
counts through WebMail. That's
wrong, and we've been trying to
combat that perception ever since."
McDonell said students should
choose a client to access their e-
mail. Among the programs recom-
mended by the UF Computing Help
Desk Web site are Eudora, Microsoft
Outlook and Thunderbird.
Since the e-mail storage server
at UF is separate from the WebMail
server, students can access e-mail
through these programs regardless
of whether WebMail is functional.
UF administration may pro-
vide more funding for WebMail,
"Roads don't get -paved until
they're full of potholes," he said.
"The memory we have wasn't
enough to handle that sudden in-
crease in usage."
Many of the decisions made about
GatorMail are handed down from
the university to UF Computing and

SFCC invites students to relax, enjoy art in Starke
* ADMISSION TO WEEKEND
EVENT IS FREE.
By ALEXIS LLOYD
As .the leaves begin to turn
golden and the temperature slowly
drops, SFCC prepares for its 20th
Annual Starke Fall Festival on
Saturday and Sunday.
The festival, located on North
Walnut Street in Starke, is themed
"A Walk Back In Time" because of
the street's brick paving and his-
toric homes, said event organizer
Lehman thinks college students
will benefit from attending.
"I know from my college days
and my daugh-

she said. "Come
out, relax and take a leisurely stroll
down Walnut Street." -
With more than 75 artists from
Florida and the Southeast planning
to attend, visitors will see different
styles of art, including paintings in
oil and acrylic, sculpture and jewelry.
The event runs from 9 a.m. to 5
p.m. Saturday and noon to 5 p.m.
Sunday. Admission is free.
A children's area will invite visi-
tors to make free crafts such as mo-
saics and Halloween masks.
Concession stands will serve
Southern food, including barbecue,
boiled peanuts and fresh lemonade.
Bands will entertain the festival-
goers with bluegrass, Florida folk
music, acoustic rock and African
drumming throughout both days.
Theater groups, doggers and salsa
dancers will also perform.
SFCC officials expect more than
12,000 to attend the festival.

Bush not all-powerful dictator of U.S.
Tow would you rate President Bush's response to
hurricanes Katrina and Rita?
If you actually answered that question, it's time
for a reality check.
Bush didn't respond to the hurricanes.
And that's not the only thing Bush didn't do.
Bush didn't make the government go to war against Iraq.
Bush didn't give tax cuts to the rich.
Bush, you see, is not an all-powerful figure who person-
ally makes every decision in our government.
No president is.
Just as importantly, in this case, Bush had no reason to
deal with the relief efforts of Katrina and Rita.
I don't think anyone will debate that Bush has exactly

lief. The planning was left as it should have been to

In response to criticism he received during Katrina's af-
termath, Bush hustled to visit FEMA headquarters after Rita
hit and loaded his schedule with events that would give the
impression he was dedicated to solving the problem.
I'm as concerned as anyone with the well-being of those
affected by Rita, but Bush isn't going to do anyone any good

involved in such an undertaking.
So, FEMA didn't do its job very well in the aftermath of
Katrina and Rita.
Bush, on the other hand, did do his job by leaving things
'to those who are supposed to know what they're doing.
Afterward, he was forced to neglect his duties by an unthink-
ing public and media.
The outcry on this issue was impossible to ignore. The

UF spokesman: Getting to nuclear material 'virtually impossible'
REACTOR, from pbge 1
But even if a visitor strapped ex-
plosives to his chest while on a tour,
the blast would not reach the reactor,
Vernetson said. In the improbable
event that all 50 tons were blown to
rubble, he said, the radioactive mat-
ter is sealed inside aluminum plates.
The ABC story also warned of a
"dirty bomb," which would use a
conventional explosive like dyna-
mite to spread radioactive material.
Orlando was skeptical.
"Actually getting to the material
is virtually impossible," he said.
For security reasons, officials
were wary of giving details of the
material's accessibility. ABC report-
ed that its findings were shared with
the universities it investigated.
The Nuclear Regulatory
Commission, which oversees civilian
use of nuclear power, sent a letter to
ABC on Oct. 12 stating that university
reactors "remain safe and secure."
NRC Public Affairs Director
Eliot Brenner said under its concrete
shell, the nuclear material is "buried
under a fair amount of water."
He echoed Orlando in saying that
retrieving the material is not easy.
"The radioactive material is what
we call 'self-protecting,'" he said.
"[It] has -sufficient radioactivity as
to disable or kill anyone who tries
to handle it."
Again for security, Brenner could
not say what kind of surveillance
UF's reactor was under.
"[But] any attempt to do any-
thing unauthorized in one of these
reactors would bring a very swift
and very armed response," he said.
"It was a ridiculous at-
tempt at being sensational
by ABC News. They want to
incite fear and action."
Nuclear engineering grad student
A tour of the reactor is always
chaperoned by a guide from the
nuclear engineering department.
The first entrance to the reactor
facility is a locked steel door.
Tourists are relieved of their cell
phones and led to a control room,
which features a kitchen counter-size
fixture with an instrument panel.
Another locked door leads to the
reactor "cell" Visitors are led up a
staircase to the top of the reactor's
Through a locked portal at the top
of the concrete, objects canbe dipped
into the reactor on a string. The reac-
tor is switched on and off, and the
newly radioactive object is gauged
for levels of various elements.
Anyone leaving the reactor cell
has to stand on a "portal moni-
tor," which resembles the sensors
at supermarket exits. The monitor
measures any radioactivity that a
person's body gives off in the form
of gamma rays.
The facility also has a friskerr,"
a hand-held device that detects ra-
dioactivity levels on the body like an
airport security wand.
But there are no metal detec-
tors or armed guards, which are
common fixtures at many full-scale
nuclear power plants.
Orlando said UF's site does not
produce power for a grid of users.
That, and its relative size, makes
such security precautions excessive.
He compared it to the nearby
nuclear plant in Crystal River, which
guards 100 tons of uranium. UF's
reactor, Orlando said, holds only a
In statements on its Web site, the
NRC affirms that university reactors
pose a low risk, It stated that even
if a dirty bomb were set off using
material from a research reactor, "no
significant injuries from radiological
exposure would result."
UF nuclear engineering graduate
student Brian Triplett said the ABC
News report was deceptive and
lacked technical background.
"It was a ridiculous attempt at
being sensational by ABC News,"
,said Triplett, who is also treasurer
for the UF chapter of the American
Nuclear Society. "They want to in-
cite fear and action."

Republicans approached a nearby KISS
105.3 FM van to try and win some tickets
to the concert.
They won four out of the seven tickets
on two consecutive spins of the wheel. The
seats were situated at rows three and five.
The group huddled to try and figure
out what to do.
"It's like knowing what to do with gar-
bage," Clinch said, amid talk of burning

She said other rappers use the "n-

typically positive. Her friend, FSU fashion

Cancellation ends a 50-year tradition
SKI; from page 1
Event organizer Leon Larson said al-
though many Gator Wake and Ski Club
members don't participate because the
event does not offer the chance to wake-
board, some club members showed inter-
est, along with many UF alumni.
"A lot of [alumni], when I told them
this, were absolutely outraged," he said.
Ascher said money also factored into
the decision to discontinue the tourna-
ment at Lake Wauburg because though the
lake is owned by UF, USA Water Ski does
not pay the university any money to host
"I can't ... endorse an event that gets
dumped on me two weeks prior to the
event, and we've had no conversations
about money or insurance issues," he said.
However, Larson said UF has never suf-
fered any financial losses from hosting the
tournament. Years ago, UF used to supply
gas and pick-up boats for tournament par-
. ticipants, Larson said, but it no longer pays
for any event-related costs.
"Little by little, [UF has] stopped provid-
ing," he said, adding that tournament pro-
ceeds that do not go toward sanction fees
are given to the Gator Wake and Ski Club.
Still, Ascher said the issue centered on
unfair usage of tuition-funded Activity &
Service fees, which help maintain the lake.
"We don't want to, you know, open up
.our doors to outside entities," he said.
"Leon Larson is a private.citizen who
wanted to put on the tournament himself,"
Ascher said. "Yes, it's true that Leon has
done this event for many years, but we're
kind of putting a stop to it."

SEC opponents target UF soccer
By SPENCER DAVIS-VANNESS
For a team that seems to be down players every week, the No.
22 UF soccer team (9-3-1) sure is operating smoothly.
Despite losing three starters before last weekend's matches,
senior forward and tri-captain Jessica Young felt that the team's
effort in practice this week warranted a telephone call to Coach
"I called [Burleigh] just to tell her I was so pleased with
[Tuesday's] practice. It's been incredible," Young said. "The at-
titude of the team is so much better than it's been the past two
Although the Gators played without scoring threats Ameera
Abdullah and Jasmine Johnson in last weekend's games, UF
emerged with two wins, including a victory against a 12-2
S. Couple that with a week of hard, intense practice, and Young
.-feels that the team is riding a wave of momentum.
s. ~ But an early-season loss to Tennessee continues to keep the
I Gators' pursuit of a Southeastern Conference title in the hands
,.i--of several conference rivals, who must lose before UF can climb
S- back atop the standings.
,.r "Right now, all we have control ov& is beating our next op-
OR:ponent, Young said. "In terms of rankings in the SEC, you can
.. only do so much. The rest is up in the air. Whatever happens,
R, w happenss"
-- That philosophy will be tested this weekend, when the Gators
i W travel to take on both Mississippi State and Mississippi.
... .hFriday's match against the Bulldogs will give UF a chance to
redeem a 2003 loss in Starkville, while Sunday's match against
7 q the Rebels will provide the Gators with a chance to defeat a team
4 currently ranked above them in SEC standings.
2,', Young said that despite having SEC-powerhouse Tennessee
a! and a surging Vanderbilt team already in the past, the Gators
.+must be prepared for two intense matches.
"Every team comes out and plays its hardest, because we're
"the Gators," she said. "Every team comes out and tries to kick
Z our butts no matter what, regardless if they're last or first. Every
game's a battle."
"It's a fact," she said. "Ever since we've started our program,
people have had the impression that UF is kind of a school that
has everything handed to them.
"I think they're jealous of our success in a lot of other sports.
There's no question that that's the case."
Tim Casey/ Alligator Staff Burleigh said that she simply wants to ensure that her team
Forward Jessica Young puts some force behind an upfield kick. The does not overlook a Mississippi State team the same way they
UF soccer team faces both Mississippi schools this weekend, did in 2003.

Despite disadvantages, UF looks to overcome obstacles, defeat top-10 team
FOOTBALL, from page 20
against ranked Arkansas and Georgia teams.
"I remember it like it was yesterday," re-
ceiver Dallas Baker said. "We were prepared
that week. We had a meeting before and after
practice saying that our backs were against
the wall, that it was time to step up."
Once again, the Gators have plenty of ob-
stacles to overcome.
UF's receiving corps are depleted with in-
jury, Coach Urban Meyer still hasn't found a
reliable starting tailback and the team has yet
to adapt to Meyer's offensive schemes.
And the Gators must face the dangerous
top-10 LSU team.
"We are getting ready to play a very tal-
ented team, who is playing very well right
now," Meyer said. "They-are playing excel-
lent defense right now. We have our hands
While the Gators seem to be at a huge
disadvantage, they've already defeated a
top-10 Tennessee team this year, and both th&e
coaches and players believe the Alabama loss
was an anomaly.
"We're just going to continue doing what
we do attack, play physical, play fast and
finish," Mincey said, "We're going to attack
them the same way we did all those other
teams we played. We just have to make sure
we come out there intense, with our miids
right and focused."
And maybe, just maybe, the Gators can
pull it off without the pixie dust.
"We still got our hopes," Mincey said. "We
have to play as good as we can. We have to
prepare well, stay healthy and just come out

MADNESS, from page 20
have already gone through their
first full practice as a team.
Tonight's event, primarily
for the fans, will provide some
excitement, especially when the
annual dunk contest kicks off.
This year's contest will be
wide open, as perennial-favorite
David Lee is gone.
Lee's departure, along with
those of Anthony Roberson and
Matt Walsh, has allowed the
youth of the team to take over.
Sophomore Corey Brewer,
who wowed crowds last season
with an array of acrobatic moves,
looks like the early favorite.
"We've got some youthfulness
in certain areas that- we're going
to have to address," Donovan
said. "And guys are going to
have to step up in a hurry and
grow and develop.
"But, the one thing I'm con-
stantly preaching to these guys
is that it's about our team: It's
about being great defensively,
it's about being unselfish on of-
fense and it's about creating an
identity that our work ethic has
to be far superior to anybody we
play against." .
The men won't be alone on the
stage tonight, as Carolyn Peck's
team will take to the court about
20 minutes prior to the men.
Peck has had a youth move-
ment of her own this year, haul-
ing in one of the nation's top
recruiting classes to complement

PICKS, from page 20
not mistakenly hassled by the media.
"My grandpa used to call me Tarzan, because I always-
climbed trees," Miles said. "My dad still calls me Tarzan."
Sure Tarzan, just lay off the crack.
As for the rest of us pickers, hitting in the leadoff spot with
a .683 batting percentage (41-19) is future truck driver Bryan
"I would drive my Tacoma to Zimbabwe if someone built an
overseas highway and gave me a year's worth of uppers" App,
whose emo clothes and positive hygiene habits might get him
a beating at Ma and Pa's Diner on Route 9.
It may be the most disgusting threesome of all-time, but
leading off the three-way tie for second and hitting .633 (38-22)
is the Romanian garbage disposal, Louis "my mom gave birth
to me when she was nearly 50, which explains my mental retar-
dation" Anastasis, who may slit his wrists on the way to Baton
Rouge because he's missing the All-American Rejects concert,
and he won't be able to mentally undress lead singer Tyson.
Sandwiched in the threesome is Steve Job's bitch Ian "it
would take a bottle of Prozac and a handle of Crown to make
me social" Fisher, who became the first nerd to buy a video
iPod so he could watch himself listening to an iPod.
Coming in from behind for the m6nage-a-trios reach around
is sorority sweetheart and pseudo-Greek Farzad "I can totally
waste you in a read-off" Safi, whose frat's rush week festivities
included punch, a 25-square-foot word jumble and a two-day
Trivial Pursuit showdown.
Batting fifth and hitting .600 (36-24) is the most NORML
guy around, Eric "I was going to save Cuba from Fidel, but
I'd rather drink and watch football" Estebanr whose phobia of
shower curtains (no joke) explains his appearance.
And sitting in the dugout with a measly .553 ba tting a \e rage
(35-25), is pedo-cannibal Andrew "babies taste good they're
plump, and they taste like veal" Abramson, who's hitting his
sociology text so hard these days that he seems to think he's
some kind of prophetic tribal leader from Papua New Guinea.

who painfully reminds us of the bum-
When Nick Saban left the Tigers,
LSU athletics director Skip Bertman
decided to take the Florida route and
hire a boring, mediocre coach who will
likely be ousted in a few years.
Here at the alligatorSports brand
picks column, we thought a conversa-
tion with Miles would be like a trip to
the dentist minus the always-enjoyable
So, in need of a weekly guest picker,
we sought out a common man who
wotld share some of the Les Miles-like
qualities without putting us to sleep
faster than a sucking Wayne Brady.
Meet Les Miles of Ft. Scott, Kan. Like
his namesake, he's a big-time boss that
runs a shipping company.
The similiarites don't end there. Both
men call themselves Les because their
full name, Leslie, isn't exactly boss-man
material, unless you're running a fruit
smoothie stand in South Beach.
"No, kids didn't make fun of me in
school because my name was Leslie,"
Miles said. "I always went by Les."
Miles knew there was a college foot-
ball coach that stole his name, but he
wasn't sure of the coach's whereabouts.
Coach Les Miles isn't exactly a part of
household conversation, not even to
the man who shares the name.
"When I heard about him, I just
wished that I had his money," Miles
said. "He makes a lot more than I do."
Miles doesn't seem to have much
faith in his coaching counterpart, be-
cause he picked the Gators to defeat
LSU in a 34-28 offensive showdown.
But if Coach Les Miles somehow
does what Zook couldn't do and be-
comes a quality football coach, our Les
Miles has a fallback name so that he's

Crucial road showdown awaits UF
By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
The Gators are battered and bruised
and favored to lose. A crucial game against
Louisiana State couldn't have come at a worse
time for the injury-riddled Gators.
It may take a little of Tinker Bell's pixie
dust to pull off this one.
"We feel like somebody has a knife at our
back, and we're at the end of a board, you
know how Peter Pan was," defensive end
Jeremy Mincey said. "We don't want to jump
the plank. We don't want to die."
A loss wouldn't kill the Gators, but it
would certainly put them on life support in
the intensive care unit.
Despite UF's 31-3 loss to Alabama two
weeks ago, the Gators still control their own
If the Gators can defeat LSU, their next
game against Georgia would likely deter-

Conference East in the conference title game.
If the Gators fall, they would need to defeat
Georgia and hope the Bulldogs lose again,
with Auburn being the most likely culprit.
Basically, it's do-or-die from here on out,
and this weekend's matchup in a hostile road
environment could be the toughest game of

Mincey said. "So we have to go in there with.
the state of mind that we have to win this
game. We have to have it in our mind every
snap, every play."
It's a very familiar situation for UF.
This time two years ago, the Gators were
reeling. At 3-3, the season seemed lost for
good, but since the losses were piling up for
other teams in the SEC East, the Gators had a
small chance to make a serious run.
Defensive end Jeremy Mincey rushes MSU quarterback Omarr Conner. Mincey hopes to
take some pressure off UF by applying it to LSU on Saturday.
Of course, that meant the Gators would tional champion LSU its only loss of the sea-

NBA during the off-season.
"One thing that did help us
