* SG FINANCE DISMISSES EMPLOYEE AFTER
SHE SPOKE ABOUT STUDENT-MONEY SPENDING.
By DAVID COHEN
A student assistant in the Student Government Finance
Office was fired last week for commenting to the Alligator
about student money spent at a pig roast.
On Nov. 9, Susan Henriques said Student Body Treasurer
Lindsay Cosimi "should have caught" the Spanish American
Law Students Association before it spent $137.50 of tuition-
funded SG money on a pig for an off-campus tailgate party.
Henriques had signed a contract stating that she would
not speak on behalf of the SG Finance Office.
SG Finance Office Business Manager Stan Beckerdite said
he fired Henriques, who had been an employee for longer
than three years, because "even a reasonable person" would
believe that she spoke on behalf of the entire finance office
with that statement.
"I won't tolerate that," he said. "I
GStudent think it's wrong. She crossed a bound-
GOVermmntt ary. I'm the boss; my opinion is what
Beckerdite said he made the decision Nov. 10, the morn-
ing the article ran in the Alligator, but he slept on the decision
for three days.
"Yes, I'm still upset about it," he said.
Henriques said she will have to get another job to com-
pensate for her previous $7 per hour wage to pay her rent.
SG adviser Chris Cupoli said administrators want UF
to be a learning environment for students and that "conse-
quences are educational rather than punitive."
Henriques said she was surprised when she found out
there was a problem with her quote.
"I didn't see why he was so upset," she said of Beckerdite.
Pride Student Union Vice President Adelle Fontanet
said ,she has seen Henriques at work on the Budget &
Appropriations Committee three times. She said the com-
mittee, which Henriques sat on for three years as a represen-
tative of the finance office, could suffer without her.
"I think it was really crappy that she was fired," Fontanet
said. "They lost someone with a lot of experience who is not
directly affiliated with Student Government. She had a great
long-term perspective, something that the current committee
lacks. They're all new."
Henriques said she should be given a second chance.
"I'm really upset about it, but there's not really anything
I can do," she said.
Cosimi said she cannot remember any other time
when Henriques violated the contract; however, she said
Henriques is not deserving of a second chance.
Cosimi helped create the new regulations Henriques
signed at the beginning of the semester, Cosimi said, and she
broke them when she gave her opinion to the Alligator.
Cosimi said she can speak her mind because she is an

UF behind in faculty resources
By CASSIDY MILLS
Alligator Contributing Writer
UF must find oil or win the lot-
tery in order to hire new faculty,
according to Kim Tanzer, chair of
UF's Faculty Senate.
The UF Foundation, the orga-
nization that controls fundraising
for UF, has raised $52 million
of a $150 million goal set by UF
President Bernie Machen to help
recruit and retain faculty.
The fundraising is part of the
Faculty Challenge campaign
aimed at raising money to en-
hance classroom instruction and
research, said Chris Brazda, vice
president for public relations for
The $52 million is an endow-
ment, meaning that the money
is invested and only the interest
earned is spent.
Tanzer said the money, which
was raised in less than two years,
is hardly a drop in the bucket.
In a presentation to the Faculty
Senate on Thursday, Tanzer said
that. although the student body
has grown 33 percent in the past
15 years, the number of regular
faculty members, who do most
of the teaching, has only increased
by 2 percent.
"Even the $150 million
won't scratch the surface
of our deficit."
UF Faculty Senate chair
Tanzer said that UF is so far be-
hind comparable state schools in
terms of faculty resources that an
increase in tuition is the only way
to generate the necessary funds.
"Even the $150 million won't
scratch the surface of our deficit,"
Tanzer added that although
the endowed money sounds like
a substantial amount, private
individuals donate it with very
specific purposes in mind.
Donors decide where the
funds go and to what college, so
they are generally not distributed
evenly, she said.
Tanzer added that students are
the ones who suffer when faculty
resources are neglected.
"Students have said that the
size of classes now are large and
not sufficiently demanding, espe-
cially in lower division courses,"
she said. "I think that the risk for
students is that they don't have
people to write letters of recom-
mendation for them for graduate
school, or even someone to share
informal advice with them about
fellowships, or just general career
Sam Hadley, a second-year
accounting major, said that an
increase in faculty would be espe-
cially beneficial for students in the
Warrington College of Business
because many courses are online.
"If we had more professors
and smaller class sizes, we might
actually learn more of the material
instead of just memorizing infor-
mation for exams," Hadley said.

FBK picks new officers

Allende has been elected as the next
president of Florida Blue Key, a

so far appointed Eric White as next

"They were really the most quali-
fied people to apply for the posi-

White, who is a member of Kappa
Sigma Fraternity and a former asso-
ciate producer of Gator Growl, will
also have the distinction of being the
event's first black producer.
"The thing I look forward to the
most is to get the entire commu-
nity of Gainesville involved in Gator
Growl," White said.
Hooker is a former Student Senate

in which three non-Greeks were
elected to executive positions, all of

Allende's ties to a conspiracy de-
signed to confuse student voters in an
effort to benefit the Gator Party dur-

Online comic readers turn pennies into toys for Shands
By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Alligator Contributing Writer
Readers of a popular online comic strip
have saved their pennies for a charitable cause
Visitors of Penny Arcade's Web site have
donated more than $4,000 in toys in less than
two weeks to Shands Children's Hospital at
Penny Arcade is a humorous video game-
based comic strip created by Mike Krahulik
and Jerry Holkins. In 2003, the two used the
Web site's popularity to found Child's Play, a
charity organization based in Seattle.
This is the first year that Shands has taken
part in the toy drive, and it has received toys
ranging from Xbox consoles to children's
"Medical care could be very expensive, and
cash donations get spent on necessities, things
used to take care of sick kids," said Greg
Turner, corporate Web developer for Shands
Turner, who is a reader of Penny Arcade,
contacted Child's Play to include Shands in
the toy drive. The charity then posted a wish
list from the hospital on its Web site.
The wish list is hosted by Amazon.com, so
donators can select a gift, pay for it and send it
to the hospital with only a few clicks.
Turner said that he saw Child's Play as an
opportunity to get toys for the hospital that
children could use together.
"They can't, go outside and play soccer
like before, but they can get together and play
video games on a TV," Turner said.
Child's Play was motivated by a column
that appeared in 2003 in The Daily Herald, a
newspaper from Everett, Wash., according to
Child's Play's Web site.
"They can't go outside and play
soccer like before, but they can
get together and play video games
on a TV."
Shands HealthCare Web developer
In the column, the author stated that video
games were a training ground for children to
develop attitudes like that of Gary Ridgway, a
man from Seattle who confessed to killing 48
women in 2003.
Bothered by the portrayal of gainers in
that column and in other articles, Krahulik
and Holkins, both 28, decided to use Penny
Arcade's worldwide readership of about four
million people to create "something worth it,"
said Mike Fehlauer, Child's Play spokesman.
The result was Child's Play.
Fehlauer is a business development direc-
tor for Penny Arcade and volunteers his time
with the charity.
Child's Play started small, sponsoring
only th6 Seattle Children's Hospital, but the
response from the gaming community was so
great that it now sponsors 15 hospitals.
Child's Play does not receive a profit from
the toy drive. Money donated-through PayPal
or collected through- Amazon.com will be
equally divided and donated to the sponsored
hospitals, Fehlauer said. Child's Play's goal is
to have a video game console in every room of
the children's hospitals that they sponsor.

Official stands by her statements
HENRIQUES, from page 1
The contract reads: "ALL external commu-
nications WILL be of a factual or educational
nature. Staff will NOT express personal opin-
ion in a form that leads people- to believe it
is SG Finance position. Nothing in this Office
is intended to restrict freedom of speech. IT
MUST BE CLEAR when expressing a per-
sonal opinion that it is YOUR opinion."
Henriques said she is standing firm.
"I said that because I believed it to be true
and still do," she said.
Henriques said she signed the contract
during Fall slating, when SG parties picked
who they would run for election. She was
the Impact Party's treasurer, running against
Cosimi, then Gator Party treasurer candidate.
The contract also prohibits campaigning
while working and the use of office equip-
ment for "partisan political work."
Student Body President Joe Goldberg said
Henriques wore two hats.
"It's not easy when you are working in an
office and you are also running for office,"
he said. "I know that that's something that
is difficult to overcome. We don't have time
to play around with politics. I don't think
anyone wants to get caught up in anything
besides getting the work done that needs to
be done for the students."
He said he found fault with Henriques
when she served as a student seriator during
Summer and worked in the finance office.
"I found that to be a direct conflict of inter-
est," Goldberg said.
Henriques said she wrote an apology to all
those involved, "for my misunderstanding of
what I was allowed to do-and what I wasn't
allowed to do."
Public stepping up in crime fight
BRUCIA, from page 1
lords complete 'the checks because
Gainesville Police statistics show that
sex offenders move frequently.
Keith Faulk, spokesman for the
Alachua County Sheriff's Office, said his
office partners with GPD to do routine
checks on Alachua County's 330 regis-
tered sexual predators and offenders.
The most recent was on Halloween.
"We had about six deputies from our
department out banging on doors," he
said. "Some of the predators are not al-
lowed to have any contact with children
and would be in violation of their proba-
tion if they were dishing out candy to
children on Halloween."
Faulk said his department takes en-
forcement of the laws seriously
"We've gotten complaints from sev-
eral different offenders that three differ-
ent deputies came by in the same week
to check on them," he said.
GPD spokesman Keith Kameg said
there has been an increase in sex crimes
in the past few years.
"If anything good has come out of
the Brucia case, it is that people are more
aware of what's going on," Kameg said.
"Now the public is starting to take a
stand against crime."

Goldberg's accession as
FSA chairman ironic
It's like the entire student body is made up of goldfish.
We swim in our respective fish bowls, we study the
world through our own distorted glass barrier, and we
never remember anything that happened 30 seconds ago.
Last Fall, Joe Goldberg was against joining the Florida
Student Association. This Fall, he's chairman of the orga-
And no one is questioning this drastic turnaround. Have
we all forgotten?
We'll admit Goldberg eventually supported joining the
student lobbying group, and the Student Senate voted to
join FSA while Goldberg was Senate President.
But before he came out in support, Goldberg was part of
a group that stalled the Senate from voting on the matter.
The bill was held back for four months under the guise of
research, the results of which never really surfaced. Then
suddenly, on one very special day, the dissenters became
the supporters, without much explanation.
The FSA bill was originally supported by the Access
Party, the party of the executive branch. Goldberg was a
member of the opposing Innovate Party, which ran the
Senate. When the parties came together and voted to join
FSA, another Access-supported bill mysteriously disap-
peared one supporting Internet voting.
UF eventually joined FSA at a discounted rate, but offi-
cials had missed their chance to have a voice on setting the
So Goldberg is now chairman of an organization that he
impeded, possibly for political reasons.
But maybe Goldberg was on the right track when he
opposed joining FSA. At one point last Fall, he even took
a take-it or leave-it mentality, admitting that everything
gained by joining FSA could be done without actually join-
That's an interesting outlook for -the chairman of the
Not many deny that FSA's main purpose is networking.
We pay almost $30,000 a year for our SG officials to improve
relations with other schools' SG officials. And then some of
the money goes to lobbying against basic issues like block
tuition and higher Bright Futures standards.
But when then-Student Body President Nikki Fried
dropped funding for FSA a few years baak, she replaced
what was lost by hiring a private lobbying firm.
Under Goldberg, we've held on to both options and now
dole out a total of about $90,000 for lobbying efforts within
the state. Do we really need FSA? Or should we get rid of
the private firm?
We're glad that a UF representative has an influential po-
sition in such a big organization. And we want a UF student
-on the Board of Governors, the highest governing body of
public universities (a perk to Goldberg's new position).
But we begin to doubt the aptitude of an organization
that appoints as chairman the very person who almost pre-
vented UF from joining.
UF is the flagship institution of Florida, and its member-
ship is integral to carrying out many of FSA's goals. Our
university's influence dwarfs most of the other member
And yet, despite almost hindering FSA, Goldberg is now
accountable for its well-being. Ain't it great to be a Gator?

Bush must reconsider policies on Iraq
With approval ratings of the war and President
Bush's decisions in pursuing it languishing, it's
time to have a serious discussion about why we
still have troops in Iraq.
During the last six months, our troops have become tar-
get practice for angry insurgents, causing our role to be little
more than a counterproductive bloodbath.
Last week, Republicans resorted to name-calling, prob-
ably because the weapons-of-mass-destruction ploy -used
three years ago is wearing thin, and they don't have another
defense. Bush claims that withdrawing now would "send
mixed signals to the troops and the enemy."
But what would be mixed about Bush taking account-
ability for a deplorable decision? Then again, "accountabil-
ity" has never been in this administration's vocabulary.
When pleading for an end to this ruthless cycle of
pointless deaths now numbering more than 2,000, it is
impossible not to mention Rep. John Murtha, D-Penn. This
17-term congressman and retired Marine recently spoke
passionately against the war, asserting that the gravestones
in Arlington National Cemetery "don't say Democrat or
Republican; they say American." This is no longer a war
that can be won militarily. Instead, we now need to assist
the Iraqi government politically. Murtha's new plan sug-
gests a procedure for withdrawing troops and offers incen-
tive to the Iraqi people to help them settle what remains
Republicans deliberately misinterpreted Murtha's
logical argument. They drew up a resolution for immediate
withdrawal, claiming it was in the spirit of Murtha's pro-
posal. It was rejected 403-3. But this blatant political stunt
missed the point entirely. Murtha didn't call for immediate
withdrawal; he asked for serious re-examination and con-
sideration of his four-step plan.
Amy Eisinger While in China, Bush responded
Speaking Out gently to Murtha's emotional plea,
acknowledging him as a strong mili-
tary supporter but adding that with-
drawal would lead to a "safe haven for terror." Yet recent
polls show that Americans don't feel significantly safer now
than they did immediately after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.
The real problem is that Bush is looking to defeat a
specific group, when in reality we're fighting a faceless
enemy. The administration cannot simply ignore someone
as well respected as Murtha when he has chosen to speak
out so vehemently. Moreover, ignoring the overwhelming
majority of Americans who now oppose the war would
be a direct slap in the face to all this nation stands for.
What good is democracy when the voice of the majority
is suffocated under the selfish propaganda and privately
motivated actions of one man?
And then there's the world stage. When Bush attended
the Summit of the Americas in Argentina, Venezuelan
President Hugo Chavez led a protest against American
policies, and the 34 participating nations gave Bush a
lukewarm reception. We can no longer pretend the inter-
national community is blind to our actions. How many
more allies will the United States lose before Bush is con-
vinced our policy is wrong? How many more Americans
must give their lives for an aimless personal agenda?
This war has been seriously crippled by countless
deaths, appalling examples of bigoted American torture
and an inability to actually find weapons of mass destruc-
tion. The only hope this administration has of salvaging
what little integrity it has left is by actually listening to th(
American people and seriously reconsidering its policies.
Amy Eisinger is an English and classics junior. Her column,
appears on Tuesday.

withdraw soldiers from Iraq? tions for Florida Bright Futures?

Israel adviser affirms terrible reality
Would like to thank Accent
and VISA for inviting Ra'anan
Gissin, Ariel Sharon's senior
adviser, to UF on Thursday.
Never mind that his speech
was a propagandist spiel about
democratic practice in the West's
favorite apartheid state. Never
mind that he repeatedly .referred
to the Gaza withdrawal of 10,000
settlers while ignoring the illegal
presence of 400,000 Israeli settlers
in the West Bank. Never mind the
ridiculous claim that Palestinian
terror is the direct reason for
economic misery in the occupied
It's terrific when a senior Israeli
representative openly states, "We're
not going to talk we're going to kick
some ass." It's an honest, damning
confession from a regime that bluffs
about a roadmap for peace while going
against the very grain of international
consensus as laid forth in U.N. resolu-
tions and the Geneva Conventions.
The dictates of the International Court
Tariq Khan of Justice are
Speaking Out not worth an
ounce, it seems,
when weighed against Sharonic law.
I initially had some reservations
about Accent's choice of speaker.
Accent has worked hard to bring
us excellent speakers in the past,
including Noam Chomsky, Ralph
Nader and Bill Clinton. But Gissin
seemed like a waste of money. I
didn't feel comfortable with his
role as a spokesperson for foreign
Even in the Reitz Union Rion
Ballroom usually such a lovely
venue I did not feel comfort-
able. Maybe it was the police
officers standing at the doors. I
suppose it was mainly the surreal
nature of attending a speech on
democracy with such tight secu-
rity measures. The event itself was
modestly attended, with less than
200 audience members. It hardly
merited such security concerns;
the topic should have been benign.
Democracy is supposed to be such
a warm, fuzzy thing that I thought
we could all agree we liked it.
Perhaps Israeli democracy is a dif-
In any case, my fears turned
out to be completely unfounded.
Gissin is a blessing in disguise. His
speech's topic, "the only democ-
racy in the Middle East," inevitably
gave rise during the Q&A session to
the far more substantive concerns
of Israeli-Palestinian relations.
I hope he is given free rein by
his administration to carry on the
good work and that the language
grows more colorful, more explicit
and more in line with the realities
on the ground.
Because "ass" is being kicked as
this letter is typed. The legal and
political facilitation of "ass-kick-
ing" is under way. And it is time
that you knew it, straight from the

Letter to the Editor
Alligator proves it is intrinsically against Ayn Rand
Your paper's coverage of the event hosted by the Ayn
Rand Club on Thursday betrayed your own motto, "We
inform, you decide."
The Ayn Rand Club has hosted numerous speaking
events on campus and has never had an audience of less
than 100 people. How could you possibly forget to men-
tion the dub that brought Gary Hull to UF? Unfortunately,
this omission is not startling, given your paper's ever-pres-
ent biases. I'll admit that your paper's approach is smart
though. The worst thing you could have done from your
perspective is make known the fact that Rand is still hav-
ing an effect, 23 years after her death. She can still draw a
crowd with her ideas and keep students at a lecture for two
and a half hours despite all the school they already have.
You have to make it seem as though the students who at-
tended were beside themselves and left in protest.
Though many students left early, how is this any dif-
ferent from a regular college lecture? We do not need your
support to keep our activities flourishing on campus. For
your sake, hope the Ayn Rand Club does not become more
popular or else you might even have to mention her name
in an article. Actually, I'm surprised that you.missed a
chance to say something derogatory about her. That's usu-
ally an opportunity that people at a liberal rag like yours
won't pass up.

No. 14 Gators feel improved despite loss of Big Three
Tim Casey / Alligator Staff
UF forward Adrian Moss grabs a rebound in UF's 77-72 win against
the Deacons on Nov. 17. Moss and the Gators have risen to No. 14.
By DAN TREAT
It might be early, but the UF
men's basketball team has already
begun to reap some of the rewards
of its early season success.
After receiving just six total
votes in the pre-season Associated
Press Top 25 one more than
Bucknell and seven fewer than Old
Dominion the Gators leaped
from unranked all the way to the
No. 14 spot in this week's poll.
And it may be extremely early,
but the emergence of a new group
of starters begs the question: is this
team better than last year's version
of the Gators, who finished 24-8,
won the Southeastern Conference
Tournament and sent three players
to the NBA?
"I think we're a better team
this year than we were last year,"
forward Adrian Moss said.
"Everyone has a defined role, ev-
eryone's going to stick to their role,
and you can see our teamwork and
camaraderie on the floor."
Moss said that he received
40 voice mails from friends tell-
ing him how unified the Gators
looked after defeating Wake Forest
and Syracuse for the Coaches vs.
"[They said] it doesn't look
like there's any dissention on the
floor," Moss said. "It looks like
everyone has one agenda, and that
is to win the game at hand. There's
no ulterior motives."
Moss went on to say the editori-"
al cartoon that ran in the Alligator
on Monday, which depicted a UF
player breaking free from a ball
and chain labeled "Roberson" and
"Walsh" was unfair.
A reporter then asked Moss
to clarify his statement that
the team was better this year
without Anthony Roberson and
Matt Walsh, to which Moss said,
"We all have one agenda,
and that's to win basket-
Moss said it was all right for
him to criticize the duo because it
was his team that he was talking
Moss then said the ulterior
motives he discussed earlier were
Roberson and Walsh, "trying to
pursue a pro career" alluding to
the fact that they were thinking
of themselves rather than playing
Moss, however, doesn't believe
that is an issue with this year's

said. "And that's to win basketball

that, and they drew praise from

after winning the championship in
"I think they've got a very good
team that's going to be a very good
team to contend with," Syracuse
coach Jim Boeheim said. "I think
they'll have a tremendous year." -
Free throw woes
Despite UF's two victories
against teams from the high-pow-
ered Atlantic Coast and Big East
conferences, the team continued
to struggle from the free throw
The Gators are converting
on just 57.4 percent of their free
throws, only slightly better than
their 52.4 percent field goal
percentage and five percentage
points less than their opponents.
Donovan said that he and his
assistant coaches are trying to
be creative by forcing players to
shoot foul shots under pressure
in practice, sometimes with extra
running involved for misses.
Donovan added that while
nobody on the team is currently
shooting 70 percent from the line,
he could shoot 57 percent with his
left hand. Donovan, a right-hand-
er, shot 84.3 percent from the line
his senior year at Providence.
Moss thinks Donovan might be
a little shaky at the line.
"I want to see that," Moss said.
"Sometimes guys can forget what
they really can do when they stop
playing for awhile."
Wake up Gator Nation, UF-FSU game is still the year's hottest ticket
Am I missing something here?
Is this not the week of the Florida-
Florida State game, a.k.a. one of col-
lege football's greatest rivalries?
The game is just five days away, but there
isn't the faintest sign of Jarvis Herring guar-
anteeing a victory or Seminoles linebacker
Ernie Sims declaring he will beat up Chris
'Tis the holiday season, but it looks like
Santa forgot to leave a vintage Gators-'Noles
matchup for Little Bobby and Little Urban
this year. That will teach those naughty ras-
cals to lose three games in a season.
Seriously though, I challenge -the fans.
-Where are you guys this year? Instead of
worrying about how the Gators will handle
FSU's talented running backs duo, you're
debating whether to leave Gainesville today
Shame on the countless students who
have posted things like "Desperate to Sell 1
FSU Ticket!" on the message boards.
Since when did the hottest ticket in town
become less valuable than Priest Holmes on
my fantasy football team?
Whether I like it or not, "The Showdown
in the Sunshine State" has definitely lost its
luster in the past few years.
In the 1990's, the Gators and the
Seminoles would storm through their re-
spective SEC and ACC schedules and the
annual rivalry game would play a big part
in who could go to the national champion-
From 1993 until 1999, the game decided if
one team would go to
the title game in five of
those seven years.
Fast forward to the
new millennium and
Farzad Safi things have changed
Far's Side at both schools. The
firstname.lastname@example.org Ron Zook experiment
led to lowered stan-
dards for a school once
unhappy with a 10-2 record. Meanwhile in
Tallahassee, Bobby Bowden has seen his
dominance over the ACC diminish. During
the '90's, Bowden lost just two conference
games. The Seminoles have lost three ACC
games this season alone all to unranked
So this weekend when No. 23 FSU travels
to face No. 19 UF, who really cares?
The guys in orange and blue and garnet
and gold have an instinctive hatred for each,,
These guys grew up together and have
battled from their Pop Warner days to high
school-and now for bragging rights.
"It's Florida State," defensive end Joe
Cohen said. "You got fights before the game,
during the game and after the game."
Honestly, I wouldn't mind seeing the
Gators defend their logo at the 50-yard line
if the Seminoles' players try to stomp on it
before the game, as they like to do.
Although I don't think fighting belongs
in football, someone has to prove that this
game still matters.

Home finale to be bittersweet for UF seniors
By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
Don't blame Steve Spurrier's hasty de-
parture, Ron Zook's failed tenure or Urban
Meyer's not-so-smooth transition to the
In fact, don't blame anyone from
Gainesille, or the United States for that mat-
If you want someone to blame for UF's lack
of success the past four years, there's a scape-
goat thousands of miles away.
He's none other than the world's most
wanted man, Osama bin Laden.
Five seasons ago, when the Gators were
preparing to face Tennessee in the usual early-
season matchup, the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist
attacks headed by bin Laden forced the game
to be postponed until December.
When the game finally rolled around, the
Gators needed to defeat the Volunteers at the
Swamp for an appearance in the SEC champi-
onship game as well as a No. 2 national rank-
ing that likely would have landed them in the
BCS title game.
The Gators lost. Now, UF's fifth-year
seniors who will play their final regular
season game against Florida State on Saturday
- have never been that close to a title game
"I blame Osama bin Laden for all of this,"
joked senior linebacker Todd McCullough.
So as McCullough, Jarvis Herring,
Mike Degory, Jeremy Mincey and Tavares
Washington prepare to play at the Swamp
for the final time on Saturday, it will be a
bittersweet moment -- and it's not just bitter
because it will be their home finale.
"It's extremely disappointing,"
McCullough said. "It's something we'll al-
ways live with. It's something that's not going
to just go away. It's truly disappointing for
those guys coming in here for the level Florida
was at and to not get an SEC championship."
McCullough believes the Gators will even-
tually bounce back and become an elite team
again, but "it's just unfortunate for the seniors
not to be a part of that."
For Degory it's been equally as difficult.
"You come. to this place to win to win
SEC championships, and I've never reached
my goal," he said. "I've lost some hair and I've
lost some sleep over it but there's not much I
McCullough said playing for three coaches
was difficult and a partial reason for UF's
"Definitely going through three different
coaches and three different systems and three
different philosophies, it's hard to compete
in the SEC at this level trying to adapt to all
those systems that quickly," McCullough said.
"I think it definitely didn't play to our favor
but it's on us guys to get it done. In my mind,
we did let a lot of people
While the Gators have
Sno shot at an SEC title or
BCS bowl appearance this
season, a win against the
Seminoles would be an
ideal send-off for the se-
Degory niors that will never receive
a championship ring at UF.
"It would be awesome to look back and
say I won SEC championships and I won all
these rings, but you're not going to have that
,stuff," Degory said. "You have to remember
the times with your friends, joking around in
the locker room the good times and the bad
times. Hopefully you remember just the good
SHREVEPORT OR BUST: While it initially looked
like the Gators were heading for a Music City
Bowl bid in Nashville, now it appears UF will
play a Big 12 team in the Independence Bowl
in Shreveport, La. While nothing is certain, and
the Gators could possibly end up in a slightly
more prestigious game like the Cutback Bowl
in Tampa, in all likelihood five SEC teams will
earn higher bowl bids than the Gators.
For the second consecutive season, only
six SEC teams qualified for a bowl game. Last
year, the Independence Bowl didn't get to se-
lect an SEC team because of the low amount of
qualifiers. This year, the Music City Bowl will
be shut out.
MCDONALD OUT? UF coach Urban Meyer said
defensive end Ray McDonald might not be
available against Florida State. Meyer said
there is still swelling in McDonald's knee
that was injured against Tennessee. There is a
chance it will have to be surgically repaired.
McDonald has played sparingly the last
few weeks and on Monday Meyer said he will
look into whether it was the right decision to
even bring him back this year if he hadn't
come back he could have used a medical
"I've asked that and actually we had a dis-
cussion about that today," Meyer said. "There
will be decisions made on him real soon."
