Friends remember Delta Tau Delta member


By KYLIE CRAIG
Alligator Writer
kcraig@alligator.org

Delta Tau Delta Fraternity
brothers and close friends of
Brandon M. Johnson gathered
Tuesday night to remember
the UF student who was de-
scribed as a Southern gentle-
man and a true friend.
The fraternity held a me-
morial service in
Student the courtyard of
Life its chapter house
for Johnson, 23,
who died late Monday night
in Gainesville on the way to
the hospital.
With the lights of the house
turned off, the courtyard was
lit with purple, white and gold
candles held by his friends.
A prayer was said for
Johnson, and friends came
forward to speak about the
student who had a Southern
accent and loved country
music.
Close friend and Delta Tau
Delta member Chris Mikell
said Johnson had "a firm


handshake and a great smile.
I don't think he walked into
the room without. greeting
everyone."
Johnson, who was from
Shelby, N.C., transferred to UF
from St. Petersburg College
and pledged the fraternity
this Fall. '
Delta Tau Delta President
Kevin Mastaler said some of
the fraternity members joked
with Johnson about being like
Old Blue, an older man who
pledges a fraternity in the
movie "Old School."
"He was kind of a father
figure," Mastaler said. "His
charisma was almost like a
presence when he walked in
the room."
Visitors placed their
candles around the Delta Tau
Delta crest in the middle of
the courtyard and sang the
fraternity's song before taking
a moment of silence for their
friend.
Several people knelt down

Gators win off field


By AMY TILLEY
Alligator Contributing Writer

Lynne Vaughan has good reason to
cheer a little louder than most Gators
fans the success of her business rests
on hometown victories.
Vaughan,Jinher sixth football sea-
son as the director of UF's bookstores,
said campus and local stores' sales are
heavily influenced by the Gators' per-
formance.
When UF lost to Alabama last
month, sales dropped off, she said.
But the money came roaring back
right before the UF-Georgia game.
Since UF defeated Georgia, sales have
been very strong, Vaughan said.
"If we keep winning, it will be an
awesome holiday season," she said.


Gators seek redemption against FSU
Despite a pair of upset wins and a
jump into the top-15, center Adrian
Moss knows this is still a football
town. Moss and the suddenly
popular Gators will tipoff the rivalry
weekend festivities Friday night
against Florida State. UF will look
to seek redemption for a loss to the
Seminoles in Tallahassee last season
while trying to remain grounded de-
spite early success. See story pg. 15.


Ron Gromoll has been the general
manager of the Best Western Gateway
Grand for seven years. He, too, said
business rises and falls exponentially
as the Gators win and lose.
"If we keep winning, it will be
an awesome holiday season."
Lynne Vaughan
UF bookstores director

If the Gators win the rest of their
games this season, fans will start book-
ing hotel rooms for next year immedi-
ately, he predicted. If the team loses,
then people will be more hesitant to
reserve them.

COUNTY COMMISSION

Funding to end for YMCA


By JULIA CARVALHO
Alligator Contributing Writer

The YMCA rejected an Alachua County
Commission proposal Tuesday to reduce
funding for the program by 25 percent each
year, opting instead to receive no funding.
"This has been a very difficult decision
for us," said Leveda Brown, president of the
YMCA North Central Florida board of di-
rectors. Although the need for the YMCA's
services is not diminishing, the program
will no longer be able to meet that need,
she said.
YMCA's final payment from Alachua
County will be September 2006. The pro-
gram has gotten $401,500 annually since
1997.
This decision should result in fewer after-
school sports programs and summer camps,
and there probably will be a price increase


Dallas Diaz went
through more than
15 hours of hell
to get his slice of
heaven.
Lucky for him, he
wasn't alone.
See story, pg. 3.


of about $100 a child for each sports season,
said Tim Blenco, regional director.
County Commission Chairman Lee
Pinkoson said the commission's decision to
scale down YMCA funding
was intended to provide
an opportunity for greater
financial participation by
individual towns.
"By taking this course
of action, it doesn't give
municipalities any time
Pinkoson [to make up the difference
in cost]," Pinkoson said.
Blenco said the county intends to con-
struct parks and recreational facilities with
the money it saves from funding recreation
programs, and the YMCA will do what it can
to make the best of the situation.
"We want to put a positive spin on it,"
he said.

Gamers battle cold weather, long lines for Xbox 360


By STEVE MAGRUDER and
KATIE NEWMAN
Alligator Writers

Dallas Diaz went through more than 15
hours of hell to get his slice of heaven.
Lucky for him, he wasn't alone.
Crowds of eager shoppers camped outside
department stores throughout Gainesville
and the nation as early as Monday morning,
drawn by the prospect of snagging Microsoft's
newest video game console the Xbox 360
- on Tuesday, its first day of sale.
"This is the Christmas gift of the season,"
said Diaz, 18. He arrived at Best Buy at 5:45
p.m. ready to battle through hours of cold un-
til the doors opened at 9 a.m. Tuesday.
Six stores in Gainesville sold the few Xbox
360 "Premium" packages they had for $399 and
"Core" game systems for $299, said Michael
Giordano, assistant manager at Best Buy.
"This is the Christmas gift of the
season."
Dallas Diaz
Waited for Xbox 360

At Best Buy on Archer Road, more than 60
people were in line, many gripping their blan-
kets and shaking their legs to fight the cold.
Porta Potties were provided next to Best
Buy to save people from having to drive any-
where to go to the bathroom.
At Target on Archer Road, fast food, lawn
chairs and pick-up football games reminis-
cent of Saturday tailgating parties helped
combat nighttime temperatures that report-
edly dropped to the low 50s.
An unofficial list of hopefuls for the 16
available consoles at Target was filled 12 hours


before the store opened. When people got
tired of waiting and left, those on the waiting
list moved up.
Erik Margolin, No. 4 on the list for one of
Target's eight $400 Xbox 360 Premium con-
soles, said the system used by shoppers kept
things from getting too hostile or competitive.
"It wasn't too bad everybody we were
waiting with was cool," Margolin said.
Giordano said there might not be other
Xbox 360s for sale for a number of weeks
- maybe even months.
At Best Buy, patrons tried to occupy their
time with football, basketball and 4-square.
For a few, alcohol helped to pass the time;
some discreetly drank beer while others snuck
brandy into their coffees. Four tents were set
up as shelters and pizza boxes littered the
ground.
Papa John's Pizza delivery driver, Jake
Pillsbury, came to Besf Buy with 10 boxes of
cheese and pepperoni pizzas for free.
Shoppers at Target huddled under blankets
brought from home and slept on the sidewalk
during the last few hours before dawn, when
16 official tickets were handed out at 6:30 a.m.
For Margolin, 26, the love of gaming was
enough of a reason to lose a full night's sleep.
"I'm a video game junkie," he said. "It's my
stress release."
Dozens of guests who approached the
stores after the lines had formed were left
empty-handed and frustrated.
Not all of those who endured the cold
November night planned to buy the console
just to play games, though.
Because demand vastly exceeded the ru-
mored supply of only 300,000 to 500,000 con-
soles available in North America, those who
got their hands on a system could make huge
profits selling it to the highest bidder on eBay.


Laptop computers allowed those waiting
in line to monitor bidding rates like stock
prices, which exceeded $1,000 in some cases.
About 3,000 video game enthusiasts,
including winners of Microsoft's Hex 168
and Origen contests, spent Sunday night
and Monday playing the new system in the
Mojave Desert in an old aircraft hanger for
Xbox: Zero Hour, the official launch event.
The event drew gamers from around the
world, including a few UF students.


Kevin Dion, a sophomore digital arts and
sciences major, won the trip to Zero Hour
through the Hex 168 contest with a video he
created about ninjas inhabiting a typical col-
lege apartment.
"I didn't even really begin to believe we
had won until we actually arrived in L.A.,"
he said. "It was pretty awesome that we
didn't have to pay for anything."

Senate passes $45K bill for more newspaper copies


Student-group budgets due Jan. 9


By DAVID COHEN
Alligator Writer
.dcohen@alligator.org

Student Government has taken
another step to fulfill students'
growing appetite for news.
A bill requesting a $45,000 trans-


fer from SG reserves to cover the
New York Tunimes and USA Today
Readership Program passed its first
Student Senate reading Tuesday.
"Those papers are running out
everyday," Student Body Treasurer
Lindsay Cosimi said.
The bill calls for 30 more USA


Today papers a day, totaling 450
daily, and 48 more New York Times
papers a day, totaling 393.
If the bill passes its second read-
ing next Tuesday, it will replace the
current newspaper contract when it
ends Dec. 31.
In other Senate news, Cosimi said
student organization budgets for the
2006-07 fiscal year are due on the first


day of Spring classes: Jan. 9 at 5 p.m.
The special-events budget for
2006-07, totaling
Student $262,290, passed
Government its final read-
ing. The eight
organizations involved, which are
in charge of events such as Black
History Month, will not be allowed
to spend more than 50 percent of


their event budget on speakers and
performers.
Also, Student Body Vice
President Joyce Medina said she
was voted chairwoman of the
Florida Student Association's Vice
Presidents Council at a meeting
last week. Cosimi was voted vice
chairwoman of the Fiscal Agents
Council.

M... A Feed Nessie, others
+ 11e'


Danny Ghitis / Alligator Staff
Third-year law student Bridget Grimsley helps out with "Feed Nessie," a Thanksgiving food drive with an
oddly shaped bench as its mascot.


By DONNA MITRANI
Alligator Contributing Writer

The Loch Ness Monster has left
Scotland for warmer climates, and
she's hungry.
A new sculpture at the UF Levin
College of Law has inspired Phi
Delta Phi legal fraternity to put
on its first annual "Feed Nessie",
Thanksgiving food drive.
Since mid-November, donations
have been collected around a bench
sculpture that bears a striking re-
semblance to Nessie, the Loch Ness
Monster, when viewed at an angle.
According to a Levin College
of Law news release, the sculpture
arrived in November and is part
of a group of sculptures titled
"Separation of Powers," and was
chosen in part because it functions
as a bench.
The organization is collecting
canned food to help replenish food
drives that have been depleted as a
result of this year's natural disasters,
said Nathan Skop, Phi Delta Phi
membership chairman. The cam-
paign is also collecting blankets and
clothing.
"Now we've got Nessie, our
underwater friend, at the Levin
College of Law," Skop said.


The food drive'began Nov. 14
and ends today at 5 p.m., said Skop,
a second-year law student.
Phi Delta Phi members tied a
bandana around the monster's neck
and placed a sign on her that reads,
"Hi... I'm Nessie. Please feed me to
help others less fortunate."
As of Monday evening, three
boxes full of food had been col-
lected, Skop said.
"I think that it's good that law
students are trying to help people in
the community," said
On first-year law student
Campus Nessa Manten, 22.
According to
Manten, the food drive hasn't re-
ally attracted a crowd, despite the
posters advertising the food drive
around campus.
Manten did, however, find the
Nessie references amusing.
"I think it's kind of funny that
the bench looks like the Loch Ness
Monster," Manten said.
The statue has stirred amuse-
ment around the law school. Skop
created a Facebook.com group
called "Gators for Nessie," and 108
people have joined in support. Only
six students joined a Facebook.com
group called "Law Students Against
Nessie."


Gators' football victories, Urban Meyer influence local businesses'


success


BUSINESS, from page 1

There was also an upturn in business this
year with Urban Meyer as head coach, he said.
Last year, when Ron Zook was the coach,
rooms were available in Gainesville hotels un-
til right before game weekend. With the team
under Meyer's control, local hotels have been
booked weeks in advance.
The hotel also profits from increased rates
during football season, he said. Normally, the
rooms are $99 a night, but during football sea-
son the rooms are $189.


The hotel makes money off its sports bar as
well, Gromoll said.
Paul Lawrence, the assistant general man-
ager of the Holiday Inn West, said he doesn't
worry as much about the football team's per-
formance because his hotel houses the team
when it has a home game.
Whatever his hotel may lose in occupancy
when the Gators do poorly, it makes up by
catering the football team's meals.
Like Gromoll, Lawrence said he noticed
a difference i1n sales since Zook left. Rooms
started selling out after Meyer's Orange and
Blue Game last year. When Zook coached,
rooms only began to sell out in mid-June.


Lawrence also said the time of the game
dictates profits. If it's a night game, guests are
more likely to stay two nights instead of one
because they don't want to drive home late.
Night games also mean money for the ho-
tel's- dining area because guests eat more meals
there if the game is in the evening, he said.
The time of the game is important for book-
stores too, Vaughan said. The best time for a
game is 3:30 p.m. because fans have time to
come into the store before and after the game.
Roland Loog, director of the Alachua
County Visitors and Convention Bureau, said
that if the Gators were undefeated, 75 percent
of the vacant hotel rooms would be filled.


"Fans are fickle," Loog said.
Local restaurants are also highly influenced.
"People eat more food and drink more
drinks when their team is winning," said
Jaclyn O'Brian, a manager at The Swamp
Restaurant.
For the entire weekend of a big game,
there's standing room only, she said.
Merchandise sales are higher, and tips are
better if the team wins, she said.
The anticipation of Coach Meyer and the
team's improved performance have driven
the restaurant's sales upward, she said.
"We have had one of the best football sea-
sons we've ever had," she said.

FOOTBALL

Announcer gets star treatment


By HEATHER RAPP
Alligator Contributing Writer

Just say it.
"Here come the Gators!" Come on,
just say it.
Stadium announcer Jack O'Brien
gets it all the time.
When fans ask him to recite the fa-
mous football-player introduction, he
doesn't understand what the big deal is.
Although nearly 100,000 Swamp spec-
tators hear O'Brien, the "Here come
the Gators" announcement is actually a
recording of his predecessor, Jim Finch,
who died about four years ago.
Finch held the stadium announcer
position for 35 years.
As the voice of the Gators football
team, O'Brien said he's treated like a
celebrity everywhere he goes.
"It's just utterly ridiculous, but I
guess it beats a stick in the eye," he said.
The 53-year-old made quite a life for
himself since he dropped out of junior
college after two months.
"I hated school," he said. "I wanted
to get out into the real world and not be
delayed by four years of crap."


He hoped to gain a deeper knowl-
edge of the broadcasting industry and
had already been working as a DJ since
he was 16.
"I got the best seat in the
house. It's always a good
meal in the University of
Florida press box."
Jack O'Brien
Ben Hill Griffin Stadium announcer

"I knew more than the instructor, and
I was only 18 years old," O'Brien said.
"That's what really disappointed me."
After working with five different
radio stations across the country, he
settled down in 1977 with Jacksonville's
WIVY Top 40 station. Then in 1991,
he was hired by Clear Channel
Communications as sales manager. .
Now he works at Front Line
Solutions, a sales and promotions com-
pany he started in April that caters to
radio stations.
"If all I did was PA announcing, I
wouldn't make enough money to sur-
vive," he said.


He said he does it because he loves
his job at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, even
though he has to commute to and from
his home in Jacksonville every game.
"I got the best seat in the house,"
the 5-foot-8-inch tall O'Brien said. "It's
always a good meal in the University of
Florida press box."
He also loves to hear the Gators
marching band.
His favorite aspect of the job comes
"right before the game when the band
comes out and the crowd goes ballistic."
"It makes the hair on my arms stand
up," O'Brien said. "They don't do that
in the pros; so the college game is much
more fun."
It's also that short amount of time
leading up to the game when he's most
challenged. He said checking his facts
:as he prepares to go on the air is the
most important thing he has to do.
But the job really isn't that hard, he
said.
In addition to his position at the
Swamp, O'Brien has also announced
for the Jacksonville Jaguars, as well as
for boxing matches and professional
baseball games.

and prayed in front of a picture of Johnson sur-
rounded by flowers, a shirt and visor bearing the
fraternity's emblem.
Along with being an active member of the
fraternity, Johnson was a member of the College
Republicans. He also worked at Bonefish Grill to
pay his fraternity dues.
"His dedication to this brotherhood was un-
matched," Mastaler said.
Close friends remembered times when Johnson
made them laugh and gave them advice..
"We could sit in my room for an hour and a half
before we went out at night just listening to country
music," Mikell said.
Mikell said he was recently with Johnson at The
Swamp Restaurant when they toasted to years of
drinking together.
"Then, we put seven bucks in the jukebox and left
... left before our songs got played," Mikell said.
"In more than one way he left before his songs
played."

6, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 2005

Editorial
The Editorial Board was walking through the Plaza
of the Americas on Monday, dancing with the Krishnas,
rolling in the beautiful autumn grass and hugging big,
friendly trees.
The day was a little rainy, but we were enjoying the
serenity and safety of our college campus.
But as we were frolicking across the field, singing about
peace and love, we were shaken out of out reverie by a
frightening and unexpected sight.
An M-4 carbine assault rifle was pointed in our direc-
tion, backed up by a student peering through a sniper rifle.
The National Guard had taken the Krishnas' usual place,
and our hippie-like plaza suddenly became every little
boy's war dream.
We expected chaos, panic, mayhem guns on campus!
- but not many flinched. Most enjoyed the recruitment
events and indulged in the free food.
Sure, the guns were probably unloaded and rigged for
safety. Hell, they might have even been reproductions. But
they sure looked real.
The Editorial Board has to face the truth: Love and
peace just aren't in style. Out with vegetarian singing
circles, in with virtual war games.
So gather your ammo, smear on the face paint and get
ready to lock and load as we begin this week's edition
of...



Darts & Laurels

With Thanksgiving one day away, we'd like to start by
giving thanks. And since we're moving with the recent
violent trend, we're going to give thanks for people with
aggressive game plans.
We bestow an if-you're-going-get-arrested-go-out-in-
righteous-style LAUREL to Jennifer Arce for snatching
campus evangelist David Miller's sign and running away
with it.
Arce stole the sign, which read "Beware queer univer-
sity," and ran toward University Avenue, chased by Miller,
who was shouting and calling the police on his cell phone.
Arce was caught and handcuffed, but we think she should
have received an award for Most Hilarious Crime Against
an Idiot.
But crime isn't the only way to be amusing. We hand
a random-acts-are-much-more-fun-than-relevant-protests
LAUREL to UF sophomore Salvatore Joseph Picataggio
for bringing flash mobs to campus.
Picataggio uses Facebook.com to organize the events,
where a group of students shows -up in a designated spot
to do something random. Most recently, about 25 students
stood up on chairs in the Reitz Union Food Court and raised
bananas. Then they ate them and left.
We don't know what it means, but we think it's pure
genius. It's as satirical as performance art. can get.
Finally, we give a most-high-school-teachers-suck-any-
way-so-they-might-as-well-fake-their-education LAUREL
to William McCoggle, 73, who admitted to running a com-
pany that sold teaching certifications without any training
requirements.
We can just see this former high school teacher cackling
as he took out his revenge for his retirement pittance by fill-
ing Florida schools with unqualified teachers.
We have a message for Florida public schools: If you
don't pay a respectable salary to teachers, you're not go-
ing to get the educated ones. Not many would go through
college just so they can work for a salary they might have
gotten without an education.
Among the certifications McCoggle offered were driver's
education and physical education. We were unaware one
needed certification for those, so we don't feel too cheated.
And since we're all going to use tanks for transportation
and guns for fighting purposes in the near future, we don't
see a real point to these courses anyway.

Opinions


Column

Confederate flag a
History can be a remarkable friend if you deal with
it carefully and respectfully. We must always be
sure to understand the lessons of the past, as the
consequences of ignorance are all too clear.
But history presents us with another danger. It is one
thing to embrace the past; it-is another to hold it with such
verve that you are incapable of letting go, of viewing it
with a dispassionate perspective.
And so we have a few fans at Louisiana State University
football games flying purple-and-gold versions of the
Confederate battle flag, prompting outraged protests by
black students.
And so we have a 28-foot statue of a Confederate sol-
dier in Gainesville, Ga., standing on a marble pedestal
adorned with a Confederate flag.
And so we have citizens of another Georgia town,
Trenton, voting to re-erect a city flag featuring the
Confederate emblem..
If it seems the issue is tired and tiresome, that's because
it is. And if it seems it's time to move on from the Civil
War, that's because we should. But as long as the flags
of the Confederacy still fly over American soil, there's a
debate to be had.
The above stories all present different challenges, le-
gally and ethically, but they all are tied together by the
basic theme of historical misinterpretation.
Southerners in support of flying the Confederate
flag have argued that the Civil War is a crucial aspect
of Southern heritage and to fly the flag is to honor that
heritage.
It's an argument that has a certain allure, largely be-
cause it's completely true. The story of the South, the story
of the entire country, cannot be told without discussing
the Civil War. Where we go wrong is in the belief that the
presence of an event in our historical narrative makes it
worth honoring.
All events are worthy of discussion. Few earn hallowed

We can debate endlessly, if
Andrew Bare somewhat one-sidedly, the ex-
The Bare Truth plosive racial implications of the
letters@alligator.org Confederate flag. But setting those
aside, we're still faced with the in-
disputable facts of the situation.
The Confederate flag represented a group of men and
women who committed treason. It represents a group
of rebels who, if successful, would have tom apart the
United States.
These are the salient facts.
Everything else is on the periphery. The embarrass-
ment of the status quo is that there are American com-
munities that consider it not only appropriate but right to
honor traitors.
That Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson and Jefferson
Davis had greater bearing and wealth than the men
normally associated with words like "treason" is entirely
irrelevant. That many Confederates fought with extraor-
dinary skill and courage is also irrelevant; brilliance in the
pursuit of evil ends is no virtue.
There was nothing good or decent about the South's
rebellion. There was nothing noble about the treason of
Lee or Jackson. Lee had his chance to serve his country or
serve his state.
He chose his state.
An understandable choice. But nations have fallen as a
result of understandable choices.
And there is no reason for Americans to honor men
who made the understandable choice over the right one.

The "intelligent design" debate is not one
over science but one concerning politics. Just
take a fair look at all the articles out there.
You would be hard-pressed to find one on
either side that was calm and collected.
Instead, they are passionate, but you have
to realize that passion is not part of an unbi-
ased scientific approach.
I hold to the "intelligent design" view-
point. It seems to me that if we found a
painting of a tree on a deserted island, we
would assume that there was a painter. Why
is it such a large jump in logic to look at the
tree itself and assume that there was a cre-
ator? I understand that my view is not based

can be performed by different people with
* similar results.
The theory of evolution, as we are dis-
cussing it, is not. We are talking about new
species arising from old ones. What about
the missing links, you ask? The Nebraska
Man was built from one tooth, later found to
be the tooth of an extinct pig. The Piltdown
Man was built from a jawbone that turned
out to be from a modem ape. The missing
links still appear to be missing after more
than a century of searching. It has been re-
ported that on his deathbed, Darwin said,
"I was a young man with unformed ideas.


People made a religion out of them."
Think of the complexity of different gen-
ders. You would need two organisms that
could reproduce to evolve at the same time,
in the same location, with entirely different
sexual organ systems. Doesn't it go against
the concept of evolution to have useless ge-
netic material coding for an entire organ
system when you aren't even using it? But
my favorite example of all is proton motive

branes that makes energy through -a charge

know it. -They need to be questioned and
challenged. My challenge to anyone read-
ing this is to stand back from the issue for a
second. Read and educate yourself about the
opposing view with an open mind, and let
us hope we will be able to discuss the issue
without resorting to useless name-calling.
There needs to be an open forum for com-
munication rather than an "I'm right, you're
wrong" approach. Schools should look at
the underlying assumptions of each in a
philosophy or theology class. That's where
both rightfully belong.
Ashley Wills is a junior in the College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences.


Letters to the kct-:
Henriques' comments not grounds for her losing position
I read with interest your article detailing the firing of' Susan
Henriques. It bothers me immensely that one could lose one's
job over six such sensible words.
The reason cited for the termination of Henriques' employ-
ment was that she publicly stated her personal opinion as that
of the Student Government Finance Office, in violation of regu-
lations. Yet nowhere in the article does it state that Henriques
is speaking for the Finance Office, merely that she is (or was) a
student assistant in the office. Her former boss, Stan Beckerdite,
states that "even a reasonable person" would think she was
speaking for the whole office. I presume I am unreasonable
then, as I take it to mean she is qualified to state her opinion.
But nonetheless, as Beckerdite stated, "[His] opinion is what
counts." Wait wasn't it forbidden to declare your personal
opinion as the opinion of the Finance Office? Regardless, I
challenge the very factuality of his statement, its appropriate-
ness notwithstanding. It is not his opinion that counts. It is the
opinion of the student body, whose Activity & Service Fees the


SG Finance Office is tasked to handle.
- I can think of no one better or more qualified than Henriques
to fill that position, and I am appalled she would lose that posi-
tion merely because apparently someone has an ax to grind.

Evolution is as much of a theory as "Intelligent design"
Jake Skelly stated in his letter about evolution: "Enough is
enough already." When if comes to the brainwashing of our
youth, I fully agree. However, his attacks on "intelligent de-
sign" and the Bible leave much to be desired.
The danger about the teaching of evolution lies in its fairy
tale-style design. The logic behind it is so incoherent that it
takes more faith to believe we came from a "primordial soup"
than it does to believe in an "intelligent designer." Not all argu-
ments regarding this matter must be religious, however. One


can logically argue there are too many loopholes in the evolu-
tion theory to trust it. Society must remember that it's a theory.
Theories act as sets of propositions about how the world
works. They are falsifiable and testable.
Every honest person should be open to educating them-
selves in other theories about how the world came together.
If we truly live in a free society, why not be able to teach other
theories such as "intelligent design"? Part of the brainwashing,
however, consists of many youngsters strictly accepting it as a
law like gravity, yet gravity occurs without any disagreement.
Teaching high school social studies, I have seen the effects
of this brainwashing, and now it has seeped into the college
realm. Young people have taken the bait that evolution is the fi-
nal end-all. Teaching "intelligent design" along with evolution
would not brainwash kids, but rather enable true educational
opportunities so-young people could form their own views.
Not allowing them to do so epitomizes real brainwashing.

Basketball makes headlines at 'football school'


By DAN TREAT
Alligator Writer
dtreat@alligator.org

The town will be awash in orange and
blue this weekend, but the team with the
most firepower this time around may
be playing on Friday night rather than
Saturday afternoon.
The UF basketball team has been
stealing the headlines this week after its
wins against Syracuse and Wake Forest
last week in New York, and it was re-
warded with a No. 14 ranking from the
Associated Press.
Despite the accolades thrown their
way, one Gator knows who the top draw
in town still is.
"This is always a
football school," senior
Adrian Moss said.
"Somebody thinks
Florida, 'Oh how's the
football team doing?'
Around this time, we're
just the guys running
around in shorts."
Donovan And running around
they have been, getting back to the up-
tempo style of play that UF coach Billy
Donovan prefers to play. The Gators
(4-0) will try and carry that style of play
into Friday's game against Florida State
(2-0).
The Gators will attempt to avenge an
82-69 loss to the Seminoles last January,
a game they played without Matt Walsh
and with David Lee scoring just 4
points.
"My memory of last year wasn't
a very good one," Donovan said. "I
thought that Florida State in Tallahassee
played really, really well. They domi-
nated the game from start to finish. We
made a late push to make it respectable,
but I thought from start to finish, they


were very, very dominant."
, Donovan also said the Seminoles have
as much talent as anyone in the country.
"They're athletic, they're quick,
they're explosive," Donovan said.
"They've got a lot of talented pieces to
their puzzle."
Despite last week's two big victories,
Donovan didn't feel that his team played
exceptionally well.
"That's the biggest misconception I
think," Donovan said, "People look at
the games and say, 'Wow, Florida played
great.' No we didn't. We didn't play
great. We shot it great. If you want to
say we shot it great, we shot it great. We
didn't play great."
Getting the public to understand that
is one thing, but to get the team, espe-
cially one as young as the one UF's, is
another.
Donovan is particularly concerned with
his young players going into Friday's
game with inflated egos after last week-
ends success.
"I think the biggest thing I have to
work on now with our guys is keep-
ing them level-headed," Donovan said
while the team was still in New York.,
"Making sure that we have a level of
humility....The biggest mistake our bas-
ketball team can make, with as youthful
as they are, is to think that right now
they have everything figured out."
And after reviewing the film upon
returning to Gainesville, Donovan has
a plentiful list of improvements for the'
Gators, including foul shooting and re-
bounding.
"I would hope that, based on watch-
ing film and seeing what they're going to
see, of where we've got to get better, that
they'll say, 'You know what? Coach is
right.'" Donovan said. "It's right in front
of us; we can't do these things if we want
to reach our potential."

UF WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

Gators head to Tally unfazed by last season's loss


By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Writer .

The women's basketball team
opens Florida-Florida State week
tonight in Tallahassee, where
revenge still isn't enough to get
them pumped up to face the
Seminoles.
Last year's 72-62 loss in
Gainesville snapped a 16-game
winning streak for UF that began
in 1993.
"That was really tough los-


ing to them last year," guard
Danielle Santos said. "Especially
us feeling that we shouldn't have
lost. There was no reason that we
should have lost."
But that is in the past, and the
Gators aren't dwelling on the dis-
appointment.
"We're going to approach
as if it's our next game on our
schedule,", UF coach Carolyn
Peck said. "There's no need to get
over-hyped."
Despite starting the season


"People want to know
who's the best. We'll see."
Sha Brooks
UF point guard

2-0, the Gators are preparing by
addressing their own needs.
"We're really not worried
about them," said Santos, who
poured in 16 points against FSU
last season. "We're just worried
about us and doing what we do
best."


Sarah Lowe has returned from
her Rhodes Scholarship inter-
view, creating a logjam in the
backcourt.
She was only gone for two
games, but in her absence, her
freshman replacement, took her
spot in the lineup.
Sha Brooks started in place
of Lowe at the point during the
weekend, leading the Gators in
scoring for both games.
Peck wants to keep the same
starting lineup, meaning Lowe


will have to work her way back
into the rotation.
"Sarah has missed some prac-
tices and been under the weather
a little bit, and Sha's been play-
ing well," Peck said. "Our main
concern for this team is not who's
starting but that we're winning."
Brooks, who hails from
Tennessee, is ready to enter the
rivalry.
"People want to know who's
the best," Brooks said. "We'll
see."

Seminoles showdown could redeem UF'/ season


By LOUIS ANASTA IS
Alligator Staff Wrifer


Jarvis Herring had be.:.rd enough.
How was UF's o'.: .1 leader supposed
to stand around whike some random .UF
student bitched about Urban Meyer and
another lost o,-tba.ll ta.i:'n r
How was a _iifef, that transitioned from
one coaching regyne to another to another
supposed to take heat from a person who
could not undeArtand the growing pains of
a program? A r 3 so, when Herring, hanging
out on campus with Reggie Lewis and other
members of the secondary, overheard a dis-


senter talking smack earlier this semester,
he intercepted the conversation.
"I'm the one that you don't want to say
that kind of thing to, so that wasn't hap-
pening." Herring said, with the smirk of a
person who means exactly what he says. "I
wasn't going to let him say that. I let him
have it, basically. Someone has to be vocal
and defend this team, and I have nd pr.-.b-
lem doing that."
But Herring one of just 118 players,
scout team included, who understand.
Outside the fraternr.' order f football
players, there exists ).notlcr segment of
the population. There are boosters, fans


and onlookers who are more than happy
vef4ting yet another year of UF frustration
with negativity regarding the program and
Meyer's first season.
"Told you he couldn't run his offense,"
one will say.
"Where are we going the Continental
Tire Bowl?" another adds.
"That whole Spurrier loss was just a
nightmare, right?" a third mind opines.
Here's the confusing part: the criticisms
are somewhat warranted.
"I think we had the team to accomplish
a lot of the goals we had," linebacker Todd
McCullough said. "I don't think they were
unrealistic. This is the University of Florida
- you're supposed to win championships.
That's the reason you bring in a great coach
like Coach Meyer and the reason a lot of the
top players in the country come here is t
win championships."
Such a long time ago, wasn't it? When
Rose Bowl petals garnished the horizon.
When Chris Leak was a Heisman candidate.
When Meyer was supposed to instanta-
neously erase three consecutive five-loss
seasons from UF archives.
But as slow as Meyer's start has been, as
crushing as the South Carolina defeat was,
a nugget f possible consolation awaits. A
win against Florida State gives the Gators a
rivalry sweep (Tennessee and Georgia being
theiother two), and a victory in Gainesville
nia kc-. UF the only Southeastern Contirence
team to go undefeated at home, keeping wi-/
sions of a reclaimed Swamp still alive. \
"There's been a lot of positives and also
some bumps in the road," Meyer said.
"Your goal is to ultimately compete for an
SEC championship in Noverrmber. We did
that but wA didn't close thedeal. Then the
outcome of the Georgia game just rips your
lungs out when you think that you were
that close. But that's all history. The future


- r-T- _----- _~_







Despite falling short of his primary goal, winning an EC championship, Coach Urban,
Meyer still could take back tr'b Swamp with a win against FSU on Saturday.


biggeidisaster? 'N.
"I'm rure that all the skeptics are\going
to be oat there regardless,' center M'lc/

An I, Apicella Alligator Staft

Fed up with years of coach ig turmoil and dissention among fans, senior safety Jarvis
Herring (Po. 46, top) would love nothing more than to give Coach iUrban Meyer a sweep
over the Gators' top three tivls this season with a win against thp Seminoles.


Gator Nation should


be thankful for 2005
D oes another Atlanta-less season have you down?
Not really psyched about that drive to Shreveport, La., for
a riveting Independence Bowl showdown? Well., get over it.
Indeed, Gator Nation has much to be thankful for heading into
'this Turkey Day weekend.
As we commemorate the perseverance of the Pilgrims in settling
on this continent, the Gators have an opportunity to reclaim their
own homestead.
From 1990 to 2001, UF lost just four times -(Auburn in '94,
SAlabama in '99 and Florida State in W3 and '99) at Florida Field.
Then, Miami drained the Swamp with a category five 41-16 beat
'down of the Gators in 2002. The mystique vanished.
Soon teams like LSU, Teifnessee and even Ole' Miss left Gainesville
with victories, as UF dropped five home games during a three-year
span.
7 With a win against the Semioles on Saturday, the Gators would
I take a baby step in the right direction, going undefeated at home for
Sthe first time since 2000.
And if that wasn't sweeter than Grandma's
apple pie, how ablqut the prospect of UF defeat-
ing Tennessee, Georgia and FSU in the same
season.
Can you say cavities?
The Gators haven't been able to claim brag-
'Bryan App going rights over all of their big, rivals since
Bryan App 1995.
S App-etite 1.If they can defeat all three for onl, the third
for Receptions time in school history, could th'siseason really
bapp@alligator.org be considered a disappointed nt?
And the UF defense, it Hias plenty for which
to be thankful heading into Saturday's game.

ACC-worst 15 interceptions this season. k
Dee Webb, Kyle Jackson, your prayers have been answered.

As for the front seven, well, they can be thankful for FSU ofensive

: a While Washington and Booker have battled injuries all season,
"there's no excuse for the duo, to have only six combined touchdowns
'heading into the season finale.
The man simply hasn't a clue, and that's good news for the
;Gators, coming off a humiliating loss at the hands of the SEC's worst
rulung offense.
Perhaps Jeremy Mincey and Brandon Siler should take donations

Last season, Bowden decided against attacking a run-susceptible
,"UF defense, not calling a single run until midway through the second
"quarter. Isn't Bobby supposed to be the senile one?
". If JIWfery makes a similar blunder Saturday, that drive to
,Shreveport just might not be all that terrible afterall, huh?


FLORIDA RUN vs FLORIDA STATE RUN DEFENSE:
Florida rushes for 151.9 yards per game; FSU allows 115.7 yards rushing per game.
KEY PLAYERS: UF: Jr. TB DeShawn Wynn (110 att-560 yds, 5.1 avg, 7 TDs), Fr. TB Markus Manson (66 att 318 yds, 4.7 avg, 1 TD) FSU: Sr.
LB A.J. Nicholson (82 tackles, 42 solo), Jr. LB Ernie Sims (54 tackles, 42 solo)
ANALYSIS: Since 1990, the team that has rushed for more yards in the series has posted a 14-2-1 record. The Gators have found their niche
in the running game with Wynn and. Manson, and Florida State is hurting up front. Defensive tackle Brodrick:Bunkley has-been playing hurt,
and defensive end Kamerion Wimbley (7.5 sacks) will not play.
ADVANTAGE: FLORIDA

FLORIDA PASS vs. FLORIDA STATE PASS DEFENSE:
Florida passes for 223.1 yards per game; FSU allows 181.2 yards passing per game.
KEY PLAYERS: UF: Jr. QB Chris Leak (2,150 yds, 16 TDs-5 INTs, 62.4 pct, 134.1 rating), Jr. Chad Jackson (72 rec, 727 yds, 10.1 avg, 8 TDs);
Jr. Dallas Baker (39 rec, 512 yds, 13.1 avg, 1 TDs) FSU: SS Pat Watkins (35 solo, 2 INTs), So. DB J.R. Bryant (25 tackles, 15 solo)
ANALYSIS: The FSU corners have struggled all year trying to replace Antonio Cromartie, but the FSU secondary's calling card is shutting
down the short pass. The flip side? Free safety Kyler Hall has a knack to give up the big play, and this could be the perfect opportunity for a
Leak to go deep.
ADVANTAGE: FLORIDA

FLORIDA STATE RUN vs. FLORIDA RUN DEFENSE:
FSU rushes for 110.0 yards per game; Florida allows 102.6 yards rushing per game.
KEY PLAYERS: FSU: Sr. TB Leon Washington (69 att 324 yds, 4.7 avg, 2 TDs). Jr. TB Lorenzo Booker (99 att, 515 vds, 5.2 yds, 4 TDs) UF: So. LB
Brandon Siler (53 tackles, 26 solo), Jr. DT Marcus Thomas i37 tackles, 9 for loss, 3 sacks)
ANALYSIS: Dating back to last year, three of the Seminoles last five losses have come when Washington hasn't played, and the previously injured
back should be healthy by Saturday. Booker has been great in Washington's absence, especially with screen passes, but the Gators will need a
bigger game from Siler. who had one tackle against the South Carolina.
ADVANTAGE: FSU

FLORIDA STATE PASS vs. FLORIDA PASS DEFENSE:
FSU passes for 290.6 yards per game; Florida allows 182.8 yards passing per game
KEY PLAYERS: FSU: Fr. QB Drew Weatherford (2,440 yds, 15 TDs, 15 INTs, 59.3 pct, 123.6 rating), Jr. WR Chris Davis (39 rec, 532 yds,
13.6 avg, 4 TD'), Fr. WR Greg Carr (22 rec, 470 yds, 21.4 avg, 9 tds), UF: Sr. SS Jarvis Herring (47 tackles, 31 solo), So. FS Reggie Nelson (39
tackles, 29 solo)
ANALYSIS: Weatherford leads the ACC in passing as a freshman, but his interceptions have ballooned to 15 in the past several games. While
the Gators have their own issues with consistency at corner, a banged-up Seminole offensive line could pressure Weatherford into some ill-
advised passes.
ADVANTAGE: FLORIDA

SPECIAL TEAMS:
FLORIDA KEY PLAYERS: Jr. Kicker Chris Hetland (10-11 FGs, long 471 Jr. Punter, Eric Wilbur (52 punts, 41.2 avg, long 56) FSU: So. Kicker Gary
Cismesia (14-18 FGs, long 49), Sr. Willie Reid (19 att, 262 yards, 1 TD)
ANALYSIS: Florida State has blocked five punts on the year, including a one for a touchdown in a losing effort last week against Clemson. With a
punt formation that has been nit or miss this season, the Gators will have to be wary of the Seminoles' pressure.
ADVANTAGE: FSU


INTANGIBLES:
For a championship or not, it's still Florida-Florida State. A boatload of recruits will be on hand for Meyer's first season finale in the Swamp.
Emotions should be at a high'on the field, especially on senior day. If fair-weather students put down their turkey legs, the atmosphere could
put the chomp above the chop.

Byfar the Seminoles' best weapon, Thornton has the ability to score both inside

Florida: Al Horford So., 6'8" 235 pounds, 10.3 ppg, 6.0 rpg
Horford hasn't had to be a dominant interior scorer in UF's four wins to open the year,
but this may be his chance to step up where David Lee didn't. Lee had just 4 points
and two rebounds against FSU last year. Billy Donovan said he wants a different
person to emerge on offense every night, and this may be Horford's opportunity.

Florida State: Alexander Johnson Jr., 6'10" 250 pounds, 14.0 ppg, 4 apg
A second-year starter, Johnson is the Seminoles' returning leader in scoring, rebounds
and blocks. He came to FSU as part of the stellar recruiting class that included the
now-departed Von Wafer. A prototypical big man, Johnson's game revolves around his
ability to control the glass and body-up the other team's interior players.

Florida: Taurean Green so., 6'0" 177 pounds, 15.3 ppg, 5.3 apg
Welcome to the big time, Taurean Green. After being named MVP of the Coaches vs.
Cancertournament last weekend, Green has been receiving attention nationwide. He
poured in 23 points in each of those games and earned high praise from teammates for
the way he ran and controlled the team's offense.
Florida State: Todd Galloway sr., 5'11" 178 pounds, 4.5 ppg, 4.0 apg
Another second-year starter, Galloway is entrusted to run Leonard Hamilton's offense. A
pass-first point guard, he is seeking to become the fifth player in FSU's history to lead the
team in assists for three consecutive seasons. He can also play tough and is extremely
durable, as he has never missed a game in a Seminoles uniform.
ADVANTAGE: FLORIDA



INTA GIBILES:
If the Gators were playing anyone other than a rival this week, a letdown would be very possible
coming off two highly publicized wins over Syracuse and Wake Forest. They will have revenge on
their minds after last year's defeat in Tallahassee, and the home crowd will be jacked up on the
eve of Saturday's football showdown in the Swamp. Thornton will score his points, but look for
Brewer and Horford to step up big for UF.
