Goldberg said he is going to

are as low as possible, and block tu-

He said one of the main responsi-

for students in Tallahassee, adding
that his relationship with state legis-

Goldberg said he is the first UF
student body president in about
eight years to be chairman.

A UF student was arrested for steal-

"Students who walked by
and saw the situation began yelling at

After giving the police a sworn
complaint of what happened, Miller
went back out to Turlington to continue
preaching about 40 minutes later, said
witness Randolph Hawkins, who was

Governors push diversity
By LYNDSEY LEWIS.
As UF officials attempt to broaden
diversity on campus, the state Board of
Governors is also taking steps to increase
minority enrollment at Florida schools
through a hew group called the Access
and Diversity Team.
The body that oversees Florida's 11
public universities approved the group's
creation at its Thursday meeting. The
team's main purpose will be to research
ways to improve strategies for recruiting
and enrolling minority students from
around the state.
"The team is to examine the pano-
ply of programs and strategies used to
broaden diversity of the State University
System enrollment," Board spokesman
Bill Edmonds wrote in an e-mail.
The group will be comprised of rep-
resentatives employed within Florida's
K-12 school system, as they often work

Newspaper geared toward Jewish students to hit stands
* THE PAPER, AS YET UNNAMED, IS

By LYNDSEY BECHTEL
Alligator Contributing Writer
When Jewish students come to UF, they
feel that they must make a serious compro-
mise, according to a local rabbi.
Students think they must isolate them-
selves to continue their faith or assimilate into
the larger college culture.
"This simply isn't true," said Rabbi Yonah
Schiller. "People can have Jewish experiences
UF Hillel, a Jewish community center for
students located across the street from cam-
pus, will offer these students a new connection
to their religion through an as-yet unnamed
Jewish newspaper that will circulate every
other week beginning in the Spring.
"It's a Jewish value to play an integral part in
the local and national community," Schiller said.
"If I regulate my Jewish life to one building or
day a year, my experience has fallen short."
According to Schiller, there are approxi-
mately 6,000 Jewish students on campus,
more than any other school in
Student the Southeast. Hillel's listserv has
Life about 2,000 subscribers.
Plans for the paper include a
women's column, and Schiller
said he hopes to have Mike D from the hip-hop
act Beastie Boys write about his experiences
with Judaism. Study-abroad students also will
send in articles about Jewish subcultures.
"There is this up-and-coming, new genera-
tion of Jews," Schiller said. "Hey, you can be
hip and be kosher at the same time."
Public relations junior Laura Jones is part of
the newspaper's founding team and said she
wants to expand her faith.
"Judaism is about old traditions and cultures
for most people," she said. "Once I got to high
school, I felt the pressure to go out on Friday
nights instead of go to temple for Shabbat."
The paper's staff will be finalized after

Flash mob brings mystery and excitement to UF
By HEATHER RAPP
Alligator Contributing Writer
At precisely 1:46 p.m. Friday,
about 25 students stood atop 25
chairs and raised 25 bananas in
The strangers toasted their
fruit, peeled and devoured.
"I don't get it," yelled a diner-
turned-audience member in the
Reitz Union Food Court.
Confusion and applause rip-
pled through the bystanders.
Two minutes later, it was all
ever. The bananas were gone, as
were their spontaneous consum-
With that, the fourth UF flash
mob was complete.
What was that?
A flash mob occurs when
strangers congregate at a" syn-
chronized time and place, per-
form an often-obscure activity
and disperse immediately.
Usually, they've collaborated
through e-mail or cell phone text

Joseph Picataggio, 20, uses
Facebook.com to organize the UF
"It's like a camera flash,"
Picataggio explained. "It's there,
and you notice it. Then it's
His flash mobs have never
been captured on camera before,
and Picataggio said people par-
ticipate because they enjoy being

He said he slept through Fall's
first flash mob that consisted of
repeatedly yelling "Can you hear
me now?" into cell phones on
So this time, he was deter-
mined to participate.
How it started
The term "flash mob" origi-
nated from "Flash Crowd," a.
1971 science fiction novella that
suggested if instant teleportation
technology became widespread,
uncontrollable crowds would
flock from all over the world to
the scene of any event, according
to the author's Web site.
The first documented flash
mob occurred in June 2003 when
100 people gathered in the home
furnishings department of a
Macy's department store.
As an e-mail instructed, the
flash mobbers told sales associ-
ates that they were purchasing a
"love rug" for the commune the
entire group lived in, Picataggio
Thousands of similarly bizarre
congregations popped up in Asia,.
Australia and Europe.
While the international craze
has been described as "random
acts of pointlessness" by British
publications, many flash-mob or-
ganizers wield political agendas,
and the phenomenon persists
On Nov. 1, demonstrators
were invited to protest anti-bi-
cycle laws at a metro station in
Bucharest, Romania, as posted on
Flashmob.com, an international
But Picataggio said he has no
intention of putting a political
'spin on his events, nor is he at-

tempting to revive the craze.
The man in the orange hat
Unlike this semester's "Undie

Bergeron, the first rule of 'flash
mobs is you do not talk about
That's what Picataggio said
sets "underground" collabora-
tions apart from other publicized
"It's almost performance art,"
The public relations major

Because the 200-plus group
is comprised of strangers,
Picataggio can only hope his
messages are enticing.
"I don't know who's going
to be there," he said. "That's the
excitement of it."
In every message, he tells
members to show up and "meet
the man in the orange hat."
Picataggio's fluorescent hat
is not related to flash mobs, but
it makes him easy to spot in a
And he's got plenty of ideas
for more events.
His whiteboard at home is
filled with possibilities: from an
impromptu game of red-light,

Bright Futures rewards
The Editorial Board isn't going to win any friends this
week. We've decided a Florida tradition close to stu-
dents' hearts must change its ways.
Florida Bright Futures needs to stiffen its standards be-
fore it sinks the academic credibility of our university.
We all love the scholarship. It means many of us can go
to college for free or for a very discounted price. We're able
to attend a public university that rivals many. expensive
out-of-state schools. And getting the money is close to ef-
fortless qualified students sign up, and the scholarship
is automatically dispensed.
But while we would like to give everyone a chance to
get a good education, we can't rationalize giving merit-
based scholarships fo students who haven't displayed
much merit. To qualify for the Florida Medallion Scholars
Award, which pays 75 percent of tuition, students only
need to score a 970 on the SAT. The average SAT score is
Should a purportedly merit-based scholarship have
standards that dip below average achievement?
We like Bright Futures because it's easy to get. We don't
need to put forth much effort to secure it, and we have
come to consider it our educational right.
But in the long run, we all lose when money is given
away so loosely.
Bright Futures has succeeded at keeping good college
students within the state. When public universities offer a
good education for free, students, find it hard to travel out
of state, far from their families, to a college that will cost
them $40,000 a year.
Undoubtedly, UF owes the excellence of its student
body to Bright Futures.
However, the highest standards of Bright Futures are
falling behind UF's entrance qualifications. And with
many students receiving the scholarship, tuition is kept ri-
diculously low by a state government that can't, or won't,
pay higher tuition for Bright Futures recipients. Instead
of everyone paying their share for education, otit-of-state
and graduate students carry an unfair burden.
UF is at a standstill. Classes grow larger, and professors
are forced to teach more and more students. We might like
going to school cheaply, but at what price of education?
Nothing worthwhile is obtained for free.
Bright Futures once helped raise the bar for Florida
universities; now it's impeding their growth.
Instead of discerning by merit or need, the state gives
the scholarship to almost everyone qualified for' college.
About 24,000 of 33,000 UF undergraduates receive at least
a 75-percent Bright Futures Scholarship.
Many who receive the award dorl't need the money. If
the standards were set higher, only overachieving students
would get the award, leaving extra money for need-based
scholarships and allowing tuition to be raised to a more
Students who can't afford the higher tuition would be
able to receive need-based aid. And students who could
afford it would still be in a better financial situation than if
they had gone out of state.
We're in a world where college education is a possibil-
ity for everyone. Bright Futures has enabled thousands to
receive an education without going into debt, and public
universities are providing quality education at an afford-
But our goal of equality should not trump our search
for exceptionality. Rewards aren't for everyone; they're for
those who have risen above the crowd.

S should "intelligent design" be taught in schools? I say
absolutely. It is an excellent topic for discussion in phi-
losophy class or in a comparative mythology class.
Why does it not belong in a science class? "Intelligent
design" is not science. It does not behave like science, and it
does not produce like science. "Intelligent design" is a move-
ment aimed at social and political reform hiding under the
guise of science. The motivations of the "intelligent design"
movement are clearly religious, and these religious implica-
tions were laid bare at the recent Scopes II trial in Dover, Pa.,
and in documents distributed by the "intelligent design"
movement. "Intelligent design" found a loophole in the 1987
Edwards v. Aguillard Supreme Court decision that struck
down the teaching of creationism. They now want to use
that loophole to insert a theocratically based social-reform
agenda through a back door.
I find it equally amazing that 100 scientists were found
who were "skeptical of the claims of random mutation and
natural selection." How many of those 100 scientists have
published their "problems"? Zero.
There are few, if any, peer-reviewed articles on "intelligent
design." I'm also willing to bet that every single one of the
100 scientists has benefited directly from studies of evolu-
tionary biology. I'm willing to bet they are healthy and able
to sign the document because they have been treated with
newer strains of antibiotics developed to keep ahead of the
random mutations and natural selective processes that cre-
ated antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
So what does "intelligent design" offer? Not much. The
conclusion of "intelligent-design scientists" is that if some-
thing looks complex, then it could not have arisen by natural
means and therefore an "intelligent designer" is responsible.
That boils down to: "Hey, I'm a smart scientist, and if I cannot
figure out how this might have evolved, than there really is
only one 'thing' smarter than me, so God did it."
Supporters make the claim that the blood-clotting cas-
cade is irreduciblyy complex" and therefore must have been
equal to giving up
Joseph Meert designed. If we accept this conclusion,
Speaking Out what fruit does it bear? How does the
hemophiliac benefit from this knowl-
edge? "Intelligent design," for all its
hyperbole, is really about giving up, Scientists do not give up
when faced with a seemingly insolvable problem.
Good science does not move forward via political lob-
bying. Einstein did not insist that relativity be taught in
physics class. He argued his case before his peers through
scientific publication and through scientific presentations
to those peers. He provided testable hypotheses, and when
those hypotheses were confirmed by experimentation and
observation, his ideas made it into high school physics text-
books. Einstein did not take out a large advertisement in The
New York Times stating, "We the undersigned have serious
problems with Newtonian gravity." He did not hire a lawyer
to have relativity inserted in high school textbooks. He did
not insist on a disclaimer in textbooks that said, "Newtonian
gravity is a controversial theory."
I would also like to add that signing a document is a
fallacious argument called "appeal to authority." A counter-
example meant to demonstrate the illogical nature of this
argument was conducted by the National Center for Science
Education. Its "Project Steve" asked for signatures by scien-
tists named Steve who find the evidence for evolution com-
pelling. So far, more than 650 scientists named Steve have
signed the document. If appeals to authority are compelling,
then evolution leads "intelligent design" by a 6.5 to 1 margin
using only scientists named Steve!
Lastly, the teaching of "intelligent design" may be illegal.
The test case in Dover is likely to provide a first test for the le-
gality of teaching "intelligent design" in classrooms. I predict
that no matter which way the decision goes in this case, the
movement will continue lobbying pressure and will continue
to fail at producing fruitful scientific evidence for its claims.

Hull's speech inspiring, not angering
If Nicole Rohrmann is a representative
example of a reporter at the Alligator, I shud-
der to think of the "news" I am receiving. I
recall two people leaving the speech and their
"storming out" looked more like a quiet exit.
At one point, an enthusiastic attendee broke
into a fit of applause when the speaker talked
about the immorality of all antitrust legisla-
If Rohrmann employed the use of a Q-tip,
the speech she heard by Gary Hull would
have left her thinking the following:
That racism is the belief that one's race de-
termines one's identity.
That multiculturalism teaches that identity
is based on skin color/ethnicity but claims its
goal is to end racism.
That there are objective standards to
which cultures can be rated. For example,
Western culture is objectively better than Nazi
Germany. It is objectively better than cultures
that deny reason, individual rights and tech-
That Western culture is not perfect its
contradictions included slavery and the op-
pression of women.
That the solution to racism is the realization
that the individual should be judged as an in-
dividual, possessing free will.
Hull presented one of the most positive,
inspiring speeches I have ever been witness
to. He spoke of the most rational, able race of
Evolution a fact, creation an illogical myth
Enough is enough already. Teaching "intel-
ligent design" in schools is simply absurd. The
mere suggestion that "intelligent design" is as
viable a theory as Darwin's "theory" of evo-
lution questions that person's credibility as a
coherent human being.
Evolution is as close to being a fact as the
Earth is round. The proof is all around us. The
fossils that are always being uncovered (most
of which, by the way, date back to more than
6,000 years ago) show us the steps to evolu-
tion. It is a very logical answer. But then again,
religion has a real problem with logic.
"Intelligent design" supporters say the
"theory" of evolution is not a sound argument,
but how often do they question their own ar-
gument? Where is the truth in it? It does not
exist. All of their arguments are based around
the Bible, which contrary to popular belief is
not a book of facts but a book of fairy tales. It
was written by a bunch of people who were
trying to find a way to control others. I think
it is sad that it has continued to be a success
thousands of years later, when the technology
is such that people should have the common
sense to realize how absurd religion is.
Why am I worried about this? I'll tell you.
The nonsense that is drilled into kids' heads,
the brainwashing, should stay within the
walls of the churches. "Intelligent design"
is only an attempt to combine schools and
churches. The separation of church and state
is a must, or else Andrew Bare's column could
be a very true thing.
What are they going to attack next, the
"theory" of gravity?e Skelly
Starbucks puts sexual comment on cups
by printing a quote on homosexuality
Amie Ward argued that a woman's ob-
jection to the Starbucks cup was due to a
"whacked-out mentality" of "bigotry" and
attitudes that are "disgusting, -nauseating
and vile." Sound ridiculous? That's Ward's
opinion of anyone who holds a different (read:
their own) opinion about sexuality.
The real problem isn't personal opinion.
The real problem is that Starbucks put sex on its
cups. Let's be real honest here the term "gay"
doesn't refer to a man's political or religious
views. It doesn't refer to whether he
fee or tea. Gay means sex. Intercoi
don't believe me, look it up.
To assign any more meaning t
would be to blanket all gays under

Potter faithful join together to top weekend receipts
Alligator Contributing Writer
Gainesville residents who wanted a first
glimpse of the latest installment in the "Harry
Potter" franchise had to get their tickets well
before they ever set foot in the theater.
By 6 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights, all
of that day's screenings of "Harry Potter and
the Goblet of Fire" were sold out, according to a
Regal Gainesville Cinema 14 receptionist.
The franchise's fourth cinematic install-
ment, "Goblet of Fire" took in an estimated
$101.43 million nationwide during its opening
weekend, making it the fourth-largest box-of-
fice opener ever behind "Spider-Man" in 2002,
"Star Wars: Episode I Revenge of the Sith"
in May and "Shrek 2" in 2004, according to
Box Office Mojo's Web site.
The parking lot of the Butler Plaza theater
was spilling over to nearby businesses' park-
ing and lawns Friday as fans lined up for one
of the film's 24 showtimes.
Fifteen-year-olds Lauren Hudson and Valerie
Fowler, from Bell, wore round, black-rimmed
glasses with repair tape on the bridge, signature
of orphaned wizard Harry Potter.
Hudson said she's read all of the books five
times each and watches all of the movies once
"I like 'em a lot," she said. "It's kind of
dorky, but cool."
Both agreed the film was exciting, though
it did not include everything from the book.
Hudson said they planned to see the movie
together about four months ago, and they
bought tickets Nov. 12.
"I like 'em (the books and movies)
a lot. It's kind of dorky, but cool."
Harry Potter fan
SFCC education major Serena Gibson, 23,
took her little.sister, Arianne, 12, to see the film
Saturday night. After arriving at the theater
at about 5 p.m., she was told that the earliest
showtime that was available was 10:55 p.m.
Gibson said she expected the opening
weekend to be busy, and she was not disap-

pointed that they had to go to a late show be-
cause the film was so exciting that it held her
attention the entire two-and-a-half hours.
"Walk the Line," another new release and
the weekend's second most popular film, took
in only a quarter of the new Potter film's earn-
ings, about $22.4 million.
According to a Fandango.com poll Friday,
62 percent of the Web site's visitors planned to
see "Goblet of Fire" on opening weekend.
Dan Fellman, head of distribution at
Warner Bros., which released the movie, said
the results exceeded the studio's expectations.
The third Potter film, "Harry Potter and the
Prisoner of Azkaban," premiered last year
with a $93.7 million weekend take.

FSA, from page 1
Goldberg said he arrived at the meeting and was un-
sure of whether to run for the position, but other student
body presidents' support at the meeting convinced him
he was suited for the spot.
University of North Florida Student Body President
Tom Foran said he nominated Goldberg because of his
"He has good insight," Foran said, noting that
Goldberg is usually up-to-date on state education issues.
FSA is looking into the possibility of bringing two
more medical schools to Florida, something that the
Board of Governors is deliberating on.
FSA Executive Director Mike Fischer said the
University of Central Florida and Florida International
University have expressed interest.
"They're very expensive," he said of the possible
medical school additions.
He said the Board of Governors is also thinking of
"instigating" a technology fee.
In May 2004, Goldberg said he was doubtful about
whether or not it was worth it for UF to spend about
$30,000 to join FSA.
However, he said when he went to his first FSA meet-
ing later in the year, he was all for it.
GovStud ment "You're sitting in a room with 10
other student body presidents, who
are trustees of their universities, who
do the same things that we do at UF," Goldberg said.
Fischer said he is confident in Goldberg.
"When you're a college student, it is awful hard to be
taken seriously," he said. "A lot of people tend to over-
look college students. Joe never has that problem."
Student Sen. Allison Cullin, leader of the Impact
Party, Goldberg's opposing Student Government
party, said the debate about whether FSA is helpful
"If we are going to be a part of FSA, we might as
well be represented at the top, where the University of
Florida belongs," she said.

Billy Ball is back
Don't lie and pretend you saw this coming, be-
cause Nostradamus couldn't have predicted this
Only about 12 people believed the Gators were ca-
pable of playing like a top-10 team, and they have names
like Joakim and Jack Berry.
Al Horford, Taurean Green and Corey Brewer must
have known they were being held back by last year's le-
thargic backcourt that had talent but couldn't play legiti-
mate Billy Ball. Now the Gators are fresh off nationally
televised victories against Wake Forest and Syracuse at
the World's Most Famous Arena, and the new darlings
of college basketball play in your backyard.
They're impossible .not to like.
Just last week, a friend and self-described Gator
Hater told me he didn't care if Matt Walsh and Anthony
Roberson were out of the picture, the Gators would still
be softer than an asexual man at a
But after watching UF conquer
the Garden, even he couldn't
deny that this team has hardcore
written all over it.

firstname.lastname@example.org The sporting world is a funny,
mysterious place. Just as you were
drenching your Gators memorabilia with gasoline after
another football season gone awry, the basketball team
appeared out of nowhere.
What's that, you already lit the match? Man, I can
smell the burning from here and it smells like a team
that Billy Donovan was born to coach.
A not-so-wise man once told me that basketball in
November means nothing, the stakes don't exist until
Well for a school that would rather watch spring foot-
ball than a basketball tournament game, chew on this:
that football game with FSU on Saturday? It means noth-
ing. While there's pride at stake, losing to Steve Spurrier
was already much more shameful than a possible defeat
at the hands of Bobby Bowden.
Sure, a win against FSU could land the Gators a re-
cruit or two and slightly redeem Urban Meyer's loss in
Columbia, but win or lose UF is probably heading to the
Music City Bowl. So it's all about basketball, and those
two victories just propelled UF into the Top 25 while do-
ing all sorts of wonders for their RPI ranking.
Suddenly I'm more interested in watching this bas-
ketball team play in the O-Dome Friday night against
FSU then I am in watching Chris Leak look awkward
running the option Saturday afternoon against the
It's still early, but I think the basketball team will ac-
complish what their football counterparts haven't done
in five years win the SEC.
And how about this ironic slap in the face? On the
day Walsh was waived by the Miami Heat, the new-look
Gators defeated Syracuse. Ouch.
Seniors, recruiting motivate UF
* THE GATORS HAVE PLENTY
TO PLAY FOR AGAINST FSU.
By IAN FISHER
Alligator Staff Writer
The Gators and the Seminoles
have six losses between them. For
UF, there are no BCS implications in
Saturday's game, win or lose.
Thinking of staying home be-
cause it's Thanksgiving weekend
and this game doesn't mean any-
"No matter what happens during
the regular season for either school,
it's always Florida-Florida State,"
senior linebacker Todd McCullough
said. "Both teams are going to be up
and fired and ready to go."
"No matter what happens
during the regular season
for either school, it's always
Perhaps most importantly, many
recruits will be at the game, and
that's partly why Coach Urban
Meyer believes this game means a.
lot for the Gators' future.
"Especially the 11th game of
the year, if you find a way to win
this game, it just sets the tone for
not just the off-season program but
also recruiting, just the atmosphere
and the attitude of how you go after
them," Meyer said.
Meyer said that recruiting was
going really well after the Gators'
big victories against Tennessee and
Georgia earlier this year both
teams were ranked in the top four
at the time.
Meyer said he is still learning
about this rivalry.
"Obviously this runs deep within
a lot of people here at Florida,"
Meyer said. "I hear what our players
say, what people who are passionate
about our program say. Bragging
rights and families split down the
middle and those types of things."
Another reason Meyer would
like to finish strong is for the de-
parting seniors. The class has been
through two coaching changes,
three bowl losses and many other
ups and downs.
"I've always felt that way, that
these seniors have been through a
Tim Casey. Alligator StaH
Despite the fact that a victory won't earn UF a spot in a BCS bowl game,
linebacker Todd McCullough and the Gators still feel they have a lot to
lot," Meyer said. "They haven't had
the success that they all. envisioned
coming to the University of Florida
... There are some guys who have-
invested a lot in this program. There
are some good people that are play-
ing their last game in the Swamp
and I think it's really important to
play as hard as we can and get them
McCullough agreed and added
that part of the importance of this
game is staying undefeated at
"This is it it's our last time in
the Swamp," he said. "We haven't
set out what we wanted to, do this
year, obviously, but we're undefeat-
ed in the Swamp right now and we
want to leave that for these younger
guys to carry on for the future and
get back that home-field advantage
But even if the Gators fall, Meyer
thinks that this game could help
"I think that also ties in to the
chemistry, where the guys will be
bouncing around here pretty good
if you win that game," Meyer said.
"That's what recruits like to see. I
don't know if it's actual results. I
think that plays a part, but it's also
just the attitude."
INJURY UPDATE: The Gators have
had injury problems all year and on
Sunday, Meyer updated the Gators'
status for Saturday's game.
Receiver Dallas Baker still has
a broken rib he played at about
60 percent against South Carolina.
Defensive end Ray McDonald, who
has been suffering a lingering knee
injury all season, played at about
50 percent. That probably won't
change, Meyer said.
* Tennessee's 28-24 loss to Van-
derbilt assured that the Volunteers
would finish under .500 and not
be eligible for a bowl game for the
first time since 1988.

UF ready for NCAA championships
By BRIAN STEELE
The UF men's cross country team
may have a secret.
The No. 20 Gators have been tak-
ing a tumble in the recent rankings,
but that may not matter going into
today's NCAA Championships.
"Other teams are probably writing
us off, but I still think we have a great
chance to be a top-10 team because
we run as a team," sophomore Henok
Lechebo said. "Whenever there's a big
meet we tend to come together."
While butterflies should be ex--
pected before one of the biggest races
of the runners' lives, the Gators are
trying to take a different approach.
"We take practice just like we do
the races, and go out and run just like
it's another day," Lechebo said. "We
know what we can do. We've run as a
team all year, this won't be any differ-
Even though the Gators did not
finish as well as they did at last year's
regional, that does not worry the
coaching staff. UF finished second last
year and third this season.
"I think we probably ran better
than last year at regionals, the region
just got better this
year," Coach Jeff
Pigg said. "I think
we ran solid, prob-
ably a top-20 perfor-
mance at regionals,
but we want a little
more than that at
Now the season all comes down to
one race for the Gators.
"If we run really well we could be
top-10, the main thing is that we just
go perform like we're capable of and
hope that puts us at a high level."
SFCC WINS THRILLER: Apparently the
holidays came early for the Santa Fe
Community College men's basketball
After giving up a 14-point lead, the
Saints received a few gifts down the
stretch against Indian River Community
Santa Fe, which still led by 12 with
5:38 left in the second half but missed
several late free throws, was bailed out
by sophomore Torrance Walker with a
last-second steal that sealed the 68-67
Even though the young Saints
barely held on, Coach Chris Mowry
knows that this is all part of the learning
"We had several opportunities
to fold and let them score down the
stretch," he said. "We took a charge, got
a couple of defensive rebounds. They
had several opportunities to win the
game, but we found a way to get some
stops when we needed to."
UF proud to win final
VOLLEYBALL, from page 19
The top-seeded Gators opened the tournament
on Friday, defeating, eighth-seeded Georgia 3-0
(30-25, 30-16, 30-20). Killingsworth's 16 kills led
the Gators, which hit at a .486 clip. It was UF's
40th consecutive win against the Bulldogs.
The second round proved to be much more
challenging for the Gators. UF fell behind early
to fourth-seeded Arkansas, losing two of the first
three games. Down 2-1, the Gators rose to the oc-
casion, cruising to victory in game four. After
reaching match point at 14-10, Arkansas fought
off three straight match points in game five, but
UF finished off the Razorbacks on a kill from
"We just have so much talent," Collymore
said. "This team is not just one position."
The tournament title was UF's 12th in the last
"We wanted to be the team that put the final
name on there," Cheronis said. "Hopefully there
won't be another tournament and the Gators will
forever be SEC Tournament champions."

Collymore leads Gators to SEC Tournament title
* THE GATORS DEFEATED ALABAMA
IN A THREE-GAME SWEEP.
By BRYAN JONES
It could not have been a more fitting fi-
Jane Collymore's eyes lit up. She leapt
high in the air, swung her right arm back
and smacked the daylights out of the ball. In
a blur, the ball fell to an empty spot on the
other side of the net.
In a blur, her Southeastern Conference ca-
reer was over. In a flash, she tallied the final
kill in SEC Tournament history.
With that Collymore kill, the No. 4 Gators
defeated Alabama 3-0 (30-25, 30-25, 30-17)
in Tuscaloosa, Ala., to win the final SEC
With the SEC's decision to add more games
to the regular season schedule beginning in
2006, there will no longer be enough time in
the year to field the tournament.
"This is a new era in the SEC," Coach Mary
Wise said. "This is by far our greatest achieve-
ment in the SEC Tournament."
Collymore, a two-time All-American and
a two-time SEC Player of the Year, finished
the match with 13 kills and five
Gators digs. She was named the Most
Volleyball Valuable Player of the tourna-
It may have been the
savvy play of setter Angie McGinnis and
the inside presence of middle blocker Kisya
Killingsworth, however, that put the Gators
over the top in the final match.
McGinnis finished the match with 38 as-
sists and eight digs, but her four kills and four
blocks are what caught Alabama off-guard.
"Angie has the ability to make wild plays,"
. Wise said. "And she has the ability to make
everyone around her better."
Killingsworth led the Gators. with 16 kills
on .591 hitting, to go along with four blocks.
"Kisya has a fierce, competitive side to
her," assistant coach Nick Cheronis said. "She
really wanted to win this match today.",

The game was dominated by
a series of runs throughout the
second half, as both teams went on
extended scoring spurts. The final
run, a 10-0 burst, punctuated by a
Green three that gave the Gators
their largest lead at 72-62 with 1:
52 left in the game, sent the largely
pro-Syracuse crowd scrambling
for the exits.
"The thing about these guys,
which is good in the game of
basketball, is that sometimes they
have a short term memory," UF
coach Billy Donovan said. "They
have no idea what's happening,
they just play hard, they compete,
they just keep playing."

In a parallel to their victory
the night before, the Gators were
largely able to keep control of the
game's pace and spent a majority
of the game in the lead.
The largest deficit UF faced
was three late in the first half after
Syracfuse's Demetris Nichols bur-
ied his fourth three of the half to-
give the Orange a 44-41 lead.
Nichols 18 first-half points (he
finished with 24) were a career
"I thought we were very fortu-
nate to only be down a point at the
half," Donovan said. "We were 3-
10 from the free throw line; every-
thing else was pretty even across
the stat sheet."
The 3-10 from the line was only
the start of an abysmal 13-27 night
from the charity stripe for the
Gators, as they ended up shooting
almost as well from behind the
arc (43.5%) as from the foul line
UF, however, frustrated
McNamara, a preseason Wooden
Award candidate, to 5-19 shoot-
ing, including 3-11 from three.
Donovan gave much of the
credit to the Gators' frontcourt.
"We really felt like our bigs
had to get out there and show
and make sure he didn't come off

"We really tried to force to him to
throw the ball back to [Terrence]
