Corners project gets $37M tax incentive
* DEVELOPERS MUST START
THE BUILDING BY MAY. 2007.
By JESSICA RIFFEL
The University Comers project
is now a reality thanks to a $37
million tax-incentive package, ap-
proved Tuesday by the Community
Comers developer Frank Darabi
said the project would not have
been possible without help from the
agency, which consists of Gainesville
City Commission members.
"I'm grateful to the City
Commission that they share our vi-
sion for that comer," Darabi said.
The commission mandated that
construction of the three-block proj-
ect on University Avenue and 13th
Street must begin by May 25, 2007,
and be completed within five years.
Darabi said the next step the
developer will take is to finish plans
and get financing for the project.
University Comers will be a

ers said. The commission expects it
to bring in money for the city in the
long run because of increased taxes.
Work has already started, includ-
ing cleaning up toxic chemicals from
a former dry-cleaning business.
The developer also has negoti-
ated lease terminations with cuurent
tenants and has settled with every
tenant except Maui Teriyaki.
"We have plans ... to build above
and around one tenant we don't have
the money to pay," Darabi said.

More labs found
in homes, motels
By ASHTON GROSZ
The existence of clandestine metham-
phetamine labs is a dangerous health hazard
- and not just for drug users.
Florida law enforcement agencies are in-
creasing efforts to find and clean up "meth"
labs due to a growing number set up in hotel
rooms, apartment complexes and outdoor
parks where lingering carcinogenic vapors.
endanger the health of those nearby
Robin McDaniel, an agent at the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement, said he
has seized about 150 meth labs since 1999,
many of which were in hotel rooms.
"Whoever sleeps in that motel room is
contaminated," McDaniel said.
He said meth is cooked using household
items such as lithium batteries, peroxide,
anhydrous ammonia and over-the-counter
medicines containing ephedrine or pseudo-
ephedrine, like Sudafed.
Once the FDLE finds a clandestine lab in
a hotel or house, officials let the owner know
that he or she is liable if anyone suffers from
health problems as a result. McDaniel said
enforcing cleanup is more difficult.
"It's hard to check on these people be-
cause there's no law that lets us," he said.
McDaniel teaches first responders how
to safely destroy the labs by wearing air
tanks and insulated chemical suits where
temperatures inside can reach 150 degrees
Fahrenheit, putting workers at risk of heat
He said the majority of hotel workers
in Florida are still not taught to spot haz-
ards, but law enforcement officials are be-
ing trained due to increasing meth use in
Florida. The drug trend is originally from
"This is just the tip of the iceberg," he
said of the drug's growth. "Florida ain't
seen nothing yet."
In October, the Florida House Committee
on Health Care Regulation heard a presenta-
tion by James McDonough, director of the
Florida Office of Drug Control, on policy re-
sponse to methamphetamines. McDonough
said 273 labs have been seized this year in
Florida, and he projected the number would
reach 364, up from 15 labs seized in 2000.
According to the Drug Enforcement
Administration's breakdown by county, one
lab in Alachua County has
State been seized every year since
Newse October 2003. ,
News Alachua County Sheriff's
Office spokesman Capt. Jim
Troiano said that although the drug is more
prevalent in counties in the Florida pan-
handle, local code enforcement officers have
requested training from the sheriff's office to
recognize clandestine meth labs.
Troiano said meth, dubbed the "redneck
drug of choice," is cheaper to buy than co-
caine, and the highly portable labs can be
difficult for law enforcement to detect.
"You can put a meth lab in a gym bag,"
He also said hotel cleaning staff should
be wary of unusual items in hotel room trash
cans and ammonia odors, though cookers
can contain strong fumes in propane tanks.,
"You, as a person, would never know
that methamphetamines had been in that
-hotel room," Troiano said. "Everything in
this room would be contaminated every-

Senate approves cap on fees
By DAVID COHEN
Student Senate approved a 50 percent cap on speak-
ers' fees for special events, such as Hispanic Heritage
Month, on Tuesday night by a 51-23 vote.
Budget & Appropriations Committee Chairman
Ryan Moseley said the cap was put in place to encour-
age diverse programming and to ensure that the ad-
vertising and food needed to attract students is within
"We believed that it would help the student body in
general," he said.
The cap on speakers' fees forced the Asian
American Student Union to reallocate $8,000 for its
Kaleidoscope Month in November 2006. The group
created Kaleidoscope Olympics, which will be a series
of games promoting communication, interaction and
unity with AASU sub-organizations, to comply with
Sen. Justin Stone said the committee was amazed at
the new programming that groups brought forth.
Moseley said his committee will be meeting soon
to discuss a $310,000 cut in funds for the Reitz Union,
Recreational Sports and Student Government..
Moseley said SG asked the UF Fee Committee for an
85-cent Activity & Service Fee increase and received a 60-
cent increase, resulting in cuts to the proposed budgets.
He said he expects more cuts in the future, but it
was too early to tell the amount of impact on student
Senate passed the entire Special Events Budget for
2006-07 with the speakers' fee cap totaling $262,290.
In other Senate news, former Senate President Diane
Kassim said she was "terrified" that the Senate might
be heading on a path toward less diversification.
"My motivation is my concern for our future," she
said. "It scares the daylights out of

to play," she said. "I have made

full of crap."
Also at the meeting, Student Body President Joe
Goldberg announced UF is working to improve com-
munication with students regarding class cancella-
tions for severe storms. Goldberg said he met with UF
administration and reported that the university plans

Panel discusses lack of preparation for hurricanes
By STEPHANIE RODRIGUEZ
A UF law professor said the government should ban devel-
opment along the Gulf Coast because of Hurricane Katrina's
devastation in a panel discussion Tuesday.
"The government won't ban coastal development because
of property rights," said professor Michael Allan Wolf. "The
president has a profound ignorance for the proper role of the
Wolf said the major component of the presi-
On dent's solution to Katrina's devastation is tax re-
Campus lief for victims. Four other speakers agreed with
him in the panel discussion.
State Rep. Ed Jennings questioned whether Florida should
allow mobile homes.
"I don't think we have a due when it comes to a time of
tragedy," Jennings said.
Jennings said his concern is that the government is relying
too heavily on the American Red Cross for disaster relief.
"The American Red Cross is great, but they are still a non-
profit organization," Jennings said. "I expect the government to
protect me and my family with federal resources."
Jennings said the government should allot money to pre-
pare for hurricanes.
Wolf said the president was also urging people to give to the
"The Salvation Army is a religious organization," Wolf said.
"What about using our tax dollars?"
Wolf said the government should use tax money to subsi-
dize affordable housing.
Ways to minimize the effects of race and poverty in hurri-
cane-stricken areas were also discussed.
Alyson Floumoy, a UF law professor, said 100,000 Louisiana
residents could not evacuate because they did not have cars.
The government failed to provide a feasible evacuation
strategy for these people, Flournoy said.

Florida House of Representatives' Ed Jennings addresses students about the problems and issues surrounding Hur-
ricane Katrina. He stressed that future preparation is necessary to avoid a future problem.
Flournoy also worried about communities exposed to toxic
mercury from wrecked coal-fired power plants.
"The government's solution is to just warn people,"
Flournoy said. "The mercury is on fish, and they're just telling
people not to eat fish."
Jennings said that the state of Florida must make sure that
17 million people are prepared for natural disasters.
"We need to have county by county plans," he said. "We
need a state and federal 'emergency army' that is prepared on
the ground to respond to these issues."

Speakers talk rape
By DONNA MITRANI
Alligator Contributing Writer
Kelly Addington and Rebecca
Tieder said they want to "make
cock blocking cool."
The 30-year-olds spoke to a
crowd of about 100 about how to
reduce sexual assault and make
a difference Tuesday night at the
Reitz Union Grand Ballroom.
The two women spoke about
their first-hand experience with
rape on a college campus.
"People will listen if you say,
'It's happened to me, and look
what I've done with my life,'" said
20-year-old Veronica Cooper, vice
chairwoman .of AAREST, Acting
Against Rape: Every Student's
Addington said she was
raped while drunk and possibly
drugged by a man visiting her one
weekend during her senior year at
the University of West Florida.
She realized she was sexually
assaulted a few months later after
two positive pregnancy tests and
recurring nightmares about feel-
ing trapped and powerless. To her
knowledge, she hadn't had sex
with anyone in almost a year.
"Either there was a second
Jesus coming into the world and
I had immaculately conceived, or
I had been sexually assaulted,"
Addington and long-time best
friend Tieder quickly traced back
the pregnancy to Addington's
male guest. When Addington
confronted the man, he told her
that although she may. not re-
member it, Addington wanted it
and was all over him.
Addington had a miscarriage
three weeks after finding out.
At the time, she felt guilt, fear
and anger and blamed herself,
she said. With the help of her
mother and Tieder,
On Addington survived

"Life is best if

than letting it take control.
The pair said students should
communicate more openly with
partners about sex and use campus
resources to make a difference.

Low prices, inability to detect by law enforcement makes meth 'drug of choice'
METH, from page 1
Dave Koppenhaver, a forensic scientist
and chemist for the FDLE, said carcinogenic
vapors fill a room where meth is cooked.
Someone who walks into a room contain-
ing an open bucket of anhydrous ammonia
will immediately cough, and some can't stay
in the room for more than 10 minutes, he said.
"If you breathe in anhydrous ammonia, it
robs your lungs of moisture and air," he said.
"If you stay in that environment, you can quite
literally cough your lungs out."
Many labs the FDLE spots are small "mom-
and-pop labs," producing about 3 ounces of
meth, or the equivalent of 60 sugar packets.
Koppenhaver compared meth contamina-
tion to the smell of cigarette smoke, detectable
due to settled chemicals that coat the environ-
ment's surfaces. A room's walls cannot contain
the byproduct in its entirety, he said.
Cleaning costs, funded by federal grants,
are about $3,000 for small labs and $100,000
for larger labs producing up to 1 pound of the
drug, along with 5 to 6 pounds of hazardous
byproduct, Koppenhaver said.
"You, as a person, would never
know that methamphetamines
had been in that hotel room.
Everything in this room would be
Capt. Jim Troiano
Sanjay Patel, general manager of Comfort
Inn on Southwest 13th Street, said that in the
10 years he has been in business, he has not
known of labs in the hotel, but his cleaning staff
is trained to look for glass bottles and needles.
Sheriffs in Osceola County are hosting
meth-awareness seminars so hotel staff can
recognize signs of former labs in rooms, said
Lt. Patrick Maloney of the Osceola County
Maloney saw a meth lab in an apartment
complex that caused health problems for a
nearby dweller as a result of toxic fumes seep-
ing through the walls.
"I'm sure there would be some lingering
health effects from the chemicals used in the
process," Maloney said.

Officials raise questions
by charging for records
T he Editorial Board is convinced: UF President Bernie
Machen is scared of students.
Recent developments in the lawsuit against
Machen pointed us to a most relevant but often neglected
question: Why aren't UF administrators bending back-
ward to give public records to students?
If we had these accusations coming our way, we would
certainly follow the public-records laws to the utmost
technicality regardless of the lawsuit's actual chance of
success. In fact, we would be more open than the law
stipulates, just to make sure. We might even hand out milk
and cookies with every request because who could be
angry after eating a cookie?
But officials have continued to show quite an aversion
to this tactic.
First, they say e-mails are deleted. Then, they claim
some are printed out and filed only by subject, not date.
And a few weeks ago, they told UF student Thomas Mott
he would have to pay almost $150 for documents similar
to the ones Charles Grapski originally requested.
We can all see that Mott has talked to Grapski and
that he is trying to catch the administration violating the
law. We'd hope Vice President for Student Affairs Patricia
Telles-Irvin would be able to see this as well.
Yet her office demanded labor costs of $135 to photo-
copy about 100 pages. They also added the maximum fee
of 15 cents per page to Mott's bill.
This is a confusing response. Sure, officials arguably
have the legal right to charge this amount, if they can offer
a convincing enough argument. But we don't think we're
alone in wondering if taking advantage of these legal
maximums is a wise move, especially with officials mum.
However, although $135 to photocopy a few pages
might seems'exorbitant to a student, it falls perfectly in
line with Telles-Irvin's salary she makes a lot of money.
But does Telles-Irvin really have no one else to make the
copies? Is that person's time really worth $135? How much .
time does it take someone to make 100 copies, anyway?
And most importantly: Why complicate their situation
further with such a pointless stipulation?
Most students can't afford to pay $150, making it dif-
ficult for the bulk of UF's campus to access these kinds of
We couldn't imagine a better example to illustrate the
vast distance between students and administrators.
If officials gave Mott the records for $15, we wouldn't
complain. We might even wonder whether Grapski had
been led astray by an overzealous attitude.
But now we're convinced that the university isn't in-
nocent in this mess. And we don't believe for a second the
claim that Machen doesn't do much business on e-mail.
What is his official e-mail address for? Sending junk
Machen communicates with many people over his e-
mail address, and we just don't buy into the idea that a big
chunk of business isn't conducted on the Internet.
Although we have our reservations about Grapski's
guerilla tactics, we're glad he refiled his suit. Someone
needs to stand up to the administration and expose its
widespread secrecy. E-mail policies must be defined.

High School in Overland Park, Kan.
But before engaging in a cathartic and fully justified at-
tack on my state's infamous school board, let's remember
what this decision does not do. It does not, as many assume,
eliminate the teaching of evolution from Kansas schools. It
does hot place a copy of the Ten Commandments in every
What the new standards actually state are ridiculous
enough without having to overstate their scope. The stan-
dards include harsh and unscientific criticism of evolution
that, implicitly if not explicitly, places unproven and un-
tested theories like "intelligent design" at the same level as
widely accepted science.
But for a second, I'm going to forget about the affront to
Charles Darwin and the hundreds of biologists who have
accomplishedbreathtaking work in this area.
Instead, I'd like to focus on the most important aspect of
any story: how it affects me. Not just me; but all Kansans,
both the expatriates and those still living in the state.
It's never been easy to be a Kansan, especially one living
outside the state, and the recent years have not been friendly
to us. Last year, Thomas Frank wrote a book with a title that
perhaps best summarizes contemporary attitudes toward
the Sunflower State: "What's the Matter with Kansas?"
In the national consciousness, Kansas has largely ceased
to be a community of people, and instead acts as some kind
of collective punch line. People who
have never met a Kansan, never
experienced the extraordinary
kindness and courtesy of Kansans,
presume to denigrate an .entire
population. UF students will tell
Andrew Bare their hilarious Kansas jokes with-
The Bare Truth out realizing that J. Wayne Reitz
email@example.com was born there.
People who have never set foot
in the state, never seen the lush
beauty of the University of Kansas campus in fall, will por-
tray an entire state as a massive wheat field without a single

I worry that the Kansas school system, my school sys-
tem, will lose credibility. The credibility that has been built
over decades by the hard work of thousands of dedicated
Kansans men and women who have spent their lives
turning the state's schools into .some of the nation's best.
I worry that the next mediocre student to come out of
Shawnee Mission West and apply to UF isn't going to get
the benefit of the doubt.
I worry those high-tech companies whose employees
carve out America's future, companies who build their of-
fices in neighborhoods -with top-flight schools, will look at
Kansas as a state hostile to science and learning.
I worry that the teachers I grew to love in my seven years
in the Kansas school system will find themselves the target
of scorn and will be looked down upon by their peers.
And all this so that six members of the Kansas State
Board of Education could accomplish God only knows

Gators must cast off Spurrier fantasy, rally
It's time to cut Steve Spurrier loose
from the Gator Nation.
I will never forget all the great things
he did for our football program. He brought
us a Heisman Trophy as a player. He brought
us six SEC titles, a national title and another
Heisman Trophy winner as a coach.
He was a great Gator. Key word: "was."
After 12 successful seasons at the helm,
Spurrier was tired of winning so much. He
was bored with SEC championships and
trips to major bowl games.
Spurrier dropped the Gators like a
bored child drops a toy that's no longer
Spurrier turned his back on the Gators.
There is no way to sugarcoat it. If he wanted
to leave, fine. It just would have been nice if
he had let us know beforehand.
Instead, Spurrier left UF at the height of
recruiting season, just weeks before signing
day, leaving Jeremy Foley with only a mat-
ter of days to find a replacement. Thanks
to Steve Spurrier, Foley had no time to line
up a quality replacement, and the Gator
Nation was stuck with Ron Zook.
Flash forward three years. Ron Zook
turned out to be a really nice guy with no
football brain and was fired mid-season.
Coincidentally, Spurrier was unemployed fol-
Tripp Miller lowing an embarrass-
Speaking Out ing stint in the NFL and
looking for work back
in the college ranks.
But he didn't want the Florida job. He left
because he was bored with it in 2001, and
he wanted nothing to do with it in 2005. He
wanted a new challenge.
What better challenge than to come to a
school with zero football history and try to
beat the team he had made so great?
And so it was: Spurrier, head coach at
South Carolina. Today, Spurrier is a rival.
He is foe, not friend. And yet Page 133 of
the football media guide is a tribute to the
man who turned his back on the Gators.
On Saturday, Spurrier accomplished
his goal by beating his former team and
ending any hopes of a trip to the SEC
Championship Game in Atlanta.
It's time to cut him loose. It's time to
send his Heisman Trophy up to Columbia.
He is no longer a Gator. He is a Gamecock
and nothing more.
Today the Gator Nation needs to rally
around Urban Meyer, not as the second
coming of Spurrier but as the coach who
may finally end Spurrier's long-held tyr-
anny over the SEC.

Letters to the Et17 o'
'Intelligent design' lacks essentials of scientific theory
A scientific theory has two parts. At its core is a collec-
tion of assertions about the nature of some aspect of the
universe say in particular, the 'development of life on
Earth. From this core, one extracts the second part: hypoth-
eses and predictions either refuted or supported by experi-
ment or observation.
"Intelligent design" theory precisely lacks the ability to
produce predictive hypotheses or suggest particular real
world observations. In fact, by positing the existence of a
supernatural being, it automatically throws its scope be-
yond natural science.
* Intelligent design's key idea is that the complexity of life
implies that a supernatural, intelligent creator designed it.
Many of the theory's supporters suggest that the human
eye, for example, could not be the product of mere chance.
However, no conceivable experiment nor observation
could provide evidence to either support or refute the exis-
tence of deliberate supernatural intelligence designing the
eye. This critical component is necessary for the hypothesis
to have any scientific worth.
So while the problem of the eye leaves something to be
desired of evolutionary theory, intelligent design does not
provide a scientific alternative. In fact, this shortcoming
extends to practically any hypothesis or suggestion that
could come out of the theory because it posits the will of an
entity beyond our ken. No real world observation can be
scientifically attributed to a supernatural cause.
At worst, it points to the scientific community where
current evolutionary theory needs revision and improve-
ment. No reasonable person will claim that evolutionary
theory is perfect in its present state; but like any; good,
sound scientific theory, it is constantly being revised, up-
dated and improved.
Riots proven effective in changing policies in France
Poor people are lazy? Ridiculous amounts of Ayn Rand
quotes? American college students pretending to know
what poor people want? What is this, a joke?
The modern welfare state only exists today because
some very intelligent capitalist found it easier to protect
his wealth by doling out a little of it through welfare rather
than risking more and more major disruptions from those
who created his wealth: a radicalized working class engag-
ing in strikes, direct action and riots.
And so the liberals were appeased, the conservatives,
shaken but no longer threatened and the radicals marginal-
The spontaneity and absence of a unifying political ide-
ology do not exclude the rioters in France from this same
logic. Already, French politicians are pushing through
more social welfare measures that will (maybe) help to al-
leviate .the plight of the jobless and poor in that country.
Does anyone honestly believe the poor communities of
France could have achieved this by signing some sort of pe-
tition, attending a peaceful demonstration or through elec-
toral politics (mainland France has zero non-white parlia-
ment members)? Do not be so idealistic, young capitalist.
Frederick Douglass said it best: "Those who profess to fa-
vor freedom and yet depreciate agitation are men who want
crops without ploughing up the ground; they want rain
without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean with-
out the awful roar of its many waters. ... Power concedes
nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will."
On a side note, as to the comment made by Chris New
about the rich not hiring thugs who beat workers: I'd like
him to try to come up with a more- historically accurate
definition for the state police!

YOUR PROFESSORS' WAR AGAINST THE MIND:
THE BLACK HOLE OF
POST-MODERNISM AND MULTICULTURALISM
Multiculturalism and deconstructionism the twin doctrines of academFia' s latest assault on reason are working to destroy
students' ability to think and to value. These two movements teach that objectivity is a myth and that all ideas are distorted by the
lens of "race, class, and gender."
In this talk, Dr. Gary Hull of Duke University explains the essence of Post-Modernism and how philosophers for the past 200
years have systematically divorced reason from reality, culminating in today's rejection of objectivity.

UF professor makes waves lecturing on tsunamis
.Tricia Coyne / Alligator Staff
Jeff Montgomery and his wife, Christy, watch a slide presentation in Emerson Alumni Hall on Tues-
day that depicts tsunami devastation in the Andaman Islands, India, in December 2004.
By OLIVIA ORMOS
Alligator Contributing Writer
- Deep within the earth in the
Turlington Plaza basement lies the
only seismometer in Gainesville,
which picks up waves that travel
through the earth.
UF assistant professor of geol-
ogy Andrew Zimmerman lectured to a
crowd of about 70 curious UF alumni
Tuesday night about the seismometer
and the science of tsunamis. Different
seismometers are still picking up
waves resulting from the tsunami that
devastated Indonesia last December.
"The earth, in fact, is ringing like
a bell, and there are different wave-
lengths," he said. "It is almost like
having different bells with different
tones expanding and vibrating like a
bell does. Even a year later the earth is
Zimmerman presented before-and-
after pictures of Indonesia's tsunami
damages. He discussed the history and
science of waves and earthquakes, the
three types of plate boundaries and the
various types of waves.
"There have been a lot of recent
natural disasters, and people want to
understand them more," he said.
He said the Indonesian tsunami
was "the strongest earthquake in four
years and the fourth strongest since
The latest figures reveal 300,000
deaths from the disaster, he said.-
The Alumni Association brought
Zimmerman as part of a distinguished
speaker series, held once a month,
which is also open to the public.
Mary Clayton, a member of the UF
Alumni Association who graduated in
1965, said both she and her husband
attend the series of lectures to further
"The lectures have extremely varied
topics, and there are always different
speakers, usually good lecturers from
the university," Clayton said.
Clayton said the main reason why
she was interested in coming to hear
the lecture was because her neighbor's
son survived the last tsunami because
he was out on a boat snorkeling.
Zimmerman said to understand a
tsunami, you have to understand earth-
quakes and waves. The word comes
from the Japanese "tsu" meaning har-
bor and "nami" meaning wave.
"Typically, waves travel up to 500
mph in open ocean and only when
they get near shore do they feel the
bottom and slow down, but build up
in height," he said.

Gators deal with upset while looking toward future
By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
When Jarvis Herring committed
to UF more than five years ago, he
had visions of a giddy Steve Spurrier
giving a salute to 80,000 fans after
winning a crucial Southeastern
But never did Halring imag-
ine that Spurrier would have
been coaching against the Gators,
and he'd be waving to a herd of

bear to watch the postgame celebra-
"I've got pride and that shit hurt

Three days after a 30-22 loss to
the Gamecocks knocked UF out of
the SEC East title picture, the Gators
returned to the practice field for the
first time. But no one has fully recov-
ered from the loss yet.
Tim Casey / Alligator Statt
UF coach Urban Meyer leaves the field at Williams-Brice Stadium following the Gators' loss to the South
Carolina on Saturday. Meyer and the Gators still felt the sting of the upset at practice on Tuesday.
Defensive end Jeremy Mincey
said he still watched the Georgia-
Auburn game Saturday night.
Auburn's victory would have
propelled UF into the SEC
Championship game had the Gators
defeated South Carolina.
"I watched every snap," Mincey
said. "When they won, I was kind of
hurt because that could have been
us in the championship."
No matter what happens from
here on ofit, UF's hopes of win-
ning the SEC have been dashed. So
the Gators can't do anything but
focus on what's left to play for, and
they listed plenty of reasons why it
would be a mistake to fold at this
UF does not play this weekend,
but a victory against archrival
Florida State Thanksgiving week-
end would not only bring pride back
to the Swamp, but it would improve
the Gators' chances at earning a re-
spectable bowl bid.
Also, if the Gators can defeat FSU
and win a bowl game, they would
finish 9-3 instead of 8-4 or 7-5 that
could help their preseason ranking
next year and also benefit recruit-
"I've still got a lot to play for,"
Mincey said. "We haven't won
a bowl game in forever, and we
haven't beat Florida State back-to-
back since '85 and '86.
"I'm not down about it things
didn't go the way we expected, but
I'm still proud to be here and I'm
happy to be a Gator."
Herring and Mincey both se-
niors agreed that the program is
heading in the right direction.
Herring said the goal right now
is to groom the younger players,
many who didn't quite buy into
Urban Meyer's system for whatever
"I've got a good feeling, about
[the program's direction]," Herring
said. "After [Meyer] gets a couple of
years in here with these guys, it'll be
on a lot different level. Those guys
will have a whole different mentali-
ty and they will learn the type of guy
[Meyer] is,- the things you're going
to accomplish if you just listen."
Mincey said he's proud of Meyer
"After [Meyer] gets a
couple of years in here
with these guys, it'll be on
a lot different level."
for "bringing a lot of guys a long
way," and Meyer also expressed
optimism about the future.
"There is no one more excited
than [me], especially when you see
some of the young guys go," Meyer
said. "You have a decent team com-
ing back and obviously, it'll be their
second year in the system. There are
a lot of positives."
But for Herring, there is no sec-
ond year in the system. That's why
finishing the season on a winning
note, even if the team didn't accom-
plish their initial goals, is crucial.
"What do I say to Jarvis Ht-rring?
I love him, which I do," Meyer said.
'Tm very dose to Jarvis Herring and
we're doing everything we possibly
can. He's had a tough go and we cari
make this thing right now, we've

UF's savior on Saturday, that famil-
iar phrase began to swirl once again:
"Wait until next year."
Maybe the program should start

its media guides. Maybe UF should
try to squeeze the saying into its
fight song. But aren't you tired of
waiting until next year?
By the sound of it, it seems like

After helping the 01' Ball Coach's
roosters rise from the SEC East ashes
on Saturday, the Gators are in seri-
ous jeopardy of becoming league
also-rans. And for all of you waiting
for next year, UF's prospects aren't
looking all too promising.
Considering a 2006 confer-
ence schedule featuring games at
Tennessee and Auburn and home
games against Alabama, South
Carolina and LSU, the Gators could
easily watch the SEC Championship
from the comfort of their couches
And don't forget a non-confer-
ence slate including Florida State,
Mississippi and a peon-no-more
UCF team. Factor in another season
of personnel problems for Meyer,
and it seems as though the national
spotlight will leave Gainesville in
the dark again next year.
Next year, Chris Leak will still
be UF's quarterback. Next year, a
football field will still have the same
distance from sideline to sideline.
And next year, SEC defenses will
still be fast enough to cover all 53
and one-third yards of it.
I Still, you have to feel for Meyer.
He wanted to set the SEC ablaze
with his offense. Just take a look in
his eyes to see how that has gone.
He needs to succeed, but more
importantly, he needs time to suc-
ceed more than two years.
He'll adapt. He's not a retard.

franchise has never been the same.

After numerous pit-
falls at UF and in the

has re-emerged with
the Miami Heat. Wil-

"He was a hip-hop Pistol Pete Maravich,"
O'Neal said. "That's who he is."
Equipped with the nickname White
Chocolate, Williams converted every game

"He had a lot of pizzazz to his
game," Heat teammate Gary Payton said.
"Everybody was calling him 'Andl' and
Williams turned a dormant Sacramento
franchise into a playoff team and the most
exciting squad in the NBA.
Falls from Grace
Meanwhile, 385 miles to the south, an at-
tentive O'Neal became impatient. The center
pestered Los Angeles general manager Jerry
West to bring Williams on board.
West .would have none of it. He no-
ticed that Williams' decision making was
often erratic. There were too many flashy
passes. There were too many ill-advised
three-pointers. Soon Sacramento coach Rick
Adelman began benching Williams 'toward
the end of games.
Then, the sledgehammer came down.
Williams failed a drug test in the summer
of 2000. He would be suspended for the
first five games of the season. But there was
more. During a game against Phoenix that
season, Williams launched a verbal tirade on
an Asian fan who taunted him.
"I will shoot all you Asian mother*******,"
adding," said Williams while imitating
machine gun fire. "Do you remember the
Vietnam War? I'll kill y'all just like that. Just
like Pearl Harbor, do you remember that?"
A $15,000 fine followed. Sacramento
traded Williams to Memphis for Mike Bibby
at the end of the season.
"He came in with Sacramento, did all this
stuff, and could never get over the hiump,"
O'Neal said. "Sacramento was a good team
once they were usinghis style but the\ could
never get over the-hump, and they needed a
Punk, or Misunderstood?
Who is the real Jason Williams?
In Memphis, he toned down his game
and his outlandish behavior. He regained
his status as one of the NBA's elite point
guards when he averaged better than eight
assists a game in his first two seasons there.
In a 2005 game against Denver, he became
the only player in NBA history to record 15
assists without committing a turnover.
Who is the real Jason Williams?
Williams, as he had always done with
Sacramento, led Memphis to the playoffs.
His team, as always seemed to be the case,
fell in the opening round. After Phoenix
swept the Grizzlies in the 2005 playoffs,
the point guard yelled at a columnist and
snatched the writer's pen out of his hands.
The incident landed Williams a $10,000 fine.
So really who is the real Jason
The Heat believe they hold answer.
They believe Williams' public perception
is skewed. They traded for him during the
summer with the assumption that he has
matured on and off the court.
So why the negative image?
"White guy. Tattoos. Flashy. It's just a ste-
reotype, and they look at him as a punk or
whatever," said Miami guard and former UFk
star Matt Walsh. "But since the whole time
that I've been here, I can tell you that there's
nothing farther from the truth."
Ask Miami players about Williams' game,
and they will tell you White Chocolate is the
best passer on the planet.
Ask Heat players about Williams' per-
sonality, and they will tell you how Williams
is a close friend. How he always offers to
pick up the tab at a restaurant. How he's a
Williams now lives in Isleworth, next
door to O'Neal where the two spent the off-
season barbecuing, boating and taking care
of each other's kids..
"Sacramento was a good team
once they were using his style,
but they could never get over the
hump, and they needed a scape-
Miami Heat center
"I don't even think of Shaq as a team-
mate," said Williams who, with his wife
Denika, has a 4-year-old son Jaxon and a 1-
year-old daughter Mia. "He's such a great
guy, and I wouldn't trade him for anybody
in the world. Words can't really explain
what kind of a guy he is."
If Williams isn't spending time with
O'Neal's kids, he is probably looking after
At Memphis, for example, he frequented
the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
"In terms of him being around young
people, the way he treated my kids is really
unique and extraordinary," UF coach Billy
Donovan said. "I think Jason often feels a
lot better around people who are not trying
to do a story on him- or trying to label him
or trying to create an image about him. He
feels a lot more comfortable being around
younger kids, high school kids because he
knows they're not drawing any conclusions
or opinions about him."
Yet something seems amiss.
One would think Williams recalls the
day he first played pick-up ball with
Said Williams: "That was such a long
time ago. I don't even remember." "
Walsh along with Heat teammate and
former UF forward Udonis Haslem main-
tain they hold a special bond with Williams
based on their Gator roots.
Said Williams: "But the whole team
And with this statement, Williams em-
phasizes the interview is winding down.
His stare lies somewhere between expres-
sionless and cold. His eyes glare, almost
piercing the reporters who have lingered to
brave the increasingly short answers.
Perhaps Williams has somewhere im-
portant to be. Maybe he is anxious to drive
to his Isleworth home and see his family.
Time for one more question, maybe? -
"Jason, I know all of you guys hang out,
but there has to be a special bond between
you and the Gator guys. I mean, I know
you went to a bunch of colleges (Williams
enrolled at Virginia's Fork Union Military
Academy for four days) but..."
"Man, I went to two colleges," Williams
retorts. "What are you talking about?"
He snatches his belongings and strides
toward the exit. And, gradually, the gray-
ness of his shirt is swallowed by the dark-
ness of the hallway.

Growing up less than 10 miles
from Jacksonville's Alltel Stadium,
Jamar Hornsby always knew he'd
be invited to the World's Largest
Outdoor Cocktail Party.
With whom he would R.S.VP.
was the question.
Rated a five-star prospect and
the No. 3 wide receiver in the coun-
try by scout.com, the Sandalwood
High senior whittled down his list
of. prospective colleges to VUF and
In the end, he said it came down
to which school wanted and needed
him most. On Tuesday, Hornsby
orally committed to the Gators al-
though he can't officially sign until
Feb. 2 and could change his mind
"Florida stayed in touch just
about every day," Hornsby said, "I
think they just wanted me to come
there and make an impact."
A two-way player who regis-
tered 83 tackles and 10 pass break-
ups as a safety along with 720 yards
and nine touchdowns as a receiver
last season, Hornsby said he's not
alarmed by the first-year struggles
of Coach Urban Meyer's spread op-
"I just wanted a program
wheie I could come in my
first year and play."
UF oral commitment
"I think [Meyer] needs receiv-
ers; he needs playmakers," he said.
"He has a few, but they had a big
loss at the beginning of the season
with Bubba Caldwell going out
with a broken leg and Dallas [Baker]
now hurt. Now, the only people
they have to rely on are Jemalle
[Cornelius] and Chad [Jackson].
Provided that those four juniors
return next season, Hornsby could
find himself at the bottom of one
of the most experienced receiving
corps in the country, but he's not
"I just wanted a program where
I could come in my first year and
play," Hornsby said. "I really don't
care who's there. We're friends -
off the field, but when it-comes to
playing time, I've got to do my job,
and I'm going to take somebody's
Hornsby's decision comes after
Stephenville (Texas) High quarter-
back Jevan Snead decided to change
his oral commitment from UF to
Texas on Monday.
The receiver wasn't aware of
Snead's decommitment but said
he'd be happy catching touchdown
passes from UF prospect Tim Tebow,
one of the top quarterbacks in the
nation who is currently deciding
betweeIUF and Alabama.
