Police nab 100s
By JESSICA RIFFEL
There were 27 arrests at
Saturday's UF-FSU football
game, which is more than any
other home game this season,
according to the University
fans were arrested at Ben
Hill Griffin Stadium for
possession of alcohol,
but Gainesville Police
Department reported 180
alcohol violations on game
day, said GPD spokesman
Possession of alcohol is
a misdemeanor offense. The
defendant usually pays a fine
and court costs, but that's
"up to a judge," Kameg said.
Ten UF students were ar-
rested at the football game.

"It was a little quieter be-

Speaker to talk sex
By IVETTE MENDEZ
Alligator Contributing Writer
After a holiday weekend at home with family, students are returning to
UF to hear about sex.
The Reitz Union Board is sponsoring "The J-Spot: A Sex Educator Tells
All," with speaker Jay Friedman.
The certified sex educator will make his presentation
about sex and relationships today at 6 p.m. in the Reitz
Friedman, who was sought out by the Comedy
Lecture Committee, aims to present the information in a
way that is entertaining for students.
"We've been talking about him all semester," said
Katie Newman, a member of the public relations commit-
Friedman tee for the board.
The free event will address a variety of topics, includ-
ing AIDS, G-spots and the future of sex.
Friedman has been lecturing on the college circuit for more than a decade
about topics considered taboo.
By the end of the show, people don't want him to stop, Newman said.
"From what I've heard, he's amazing," she said.
Friedman is also a writer and the host of a Seattle radio talk show.
After the lecture, the board will show the movie "March of the Penguins."
The penguin documentary is about dating, and the board wanted the
movie topic to match the topic of the lecture, Newman said.

UF coach Urban Meyer sings the alma mater following the Gators' 34-7 win against the Seminoles
on Saturday. .
Gators finish season perfect at home
By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
The Swamp cheer flared outward like the external
rings of a Bloomin' Onion.
And after two Outback Bowl representatives
dressed in gravy-colored sport coats smiled past
their 20-second ovation, the biggest ramification of
UF's 34-7 rout of Florida State became as clear as
Australian ocean water: grab the steak sauce, because
the Gators are.back in Outback Bowl contention.
"They helped themselves a lot today by winning,"
said Bruce Poli, Outback Bowl Chairman. "This puts
them right there in the picture."
With one swift blow to Bobby Bowden's jugular,
the Gators salvaged their season Saturday. They
completed a sweep of rivals Tennessee, Georgia
and Florida State for the first time since 1995. Of
course, it still bothers Coach Urban Meyer that he
"I think it's our biggest win. Why? I think
the Swamp was electric, and I think our
players take great pride in that."
UF football coach
cannot prepare for a date with Louisiana State in the
Southeastern Conference championship, but Meyer
has clearly taken notes from the movie "Gladiator."
Win over the crowd and you will win freedom in
Meyer's case, freedom from criticism.
"I think it's our biggest win," Meyer said. "Why? I
think the Swamp was electric, and I think our players
take great pride in that."
By the game's end, UF fans chanted his approval.

Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, is an
old term that means the day when retailers go from
red to black in sales, said Becky Bumgarner, senior
marketing director at The Oaks Mall. Companies
previously used red ink to indicate losses, while
black represented a profit.
According to a National Retail Federation sur-
vey, the 145 million people who went shopping
this Thanksgiving weekend spent more than $27.8
billion. The federation expects about $439.5 billion
to be spent throughout this holiday season.
"This will go down as one of the earliest and
most promotional Black Fridays in history,"

Tracy Mullin said in a news release. "Many stores

McCullough: Gators want bowl in Tampa
FOOTBALL, from page 1
But instead of bellowing "live,"
it was his name they hooted
- "Urban Meyer." Now, toward
the end of a season rockier than
any 6 G coaster, it is a Seminoles
blowout that allows The Gator
Nation to honestly say the ride
has not been that bad after all.
And how about this not-so-
subtle detail for kicks: UF finishes
the season undefeated at home -
the only school in the SEC to do so
- for the first time since 2000. The
Swamp, at least for the moment,
has indeed been reclaimed.
"Ever since I've been here,
we've always talked about get-
.ting back the Swamp," center
Mike Degory said. "I know for us
seniors, we were really challenged
with that. There's some good
things to look back on."
As for the bowl game outlook,
here's how it breaks down.
There are three teams, but just
two spots for the Peach Bowl and
While the Capital One Bowl
committee traditionally selects the
loser of the SEC title game, there's
a solid chance they could nab
Auburn instead. In that scenario,
the loser of the Georgia-LSU game
would play in either the Outback
or Peach Bowl. If UF doesn't make
the cut, they'll head to Shreveport,
La., for the Independence Bowl.
(8-3, 5-3 SEC)
can only hope
for the game to
pass on former
McCullough UF coach Steve
Spurrier and his South Carolina
squad. The Gamecocks (7-4, 5-3
SEC) do sport one more loss than
the Gators, but some people feel
that Spurrier would create more
than enough fanfare in Tampa to
generate sufficient revenue.
"I love [OutbackSteakhouse's]
steaks and, their Bloomin'
Onions," senior linebacker Todd
McCullough said. "Hopefully
we'll get a chance to go and play
over there, because we haven't

Students shouldn't bear
entire cost of bus service
College is naps in the afternoon. It's classes beginning
at 1 p.m. It's lazy weekends and crazy nights. It's our
last hurrah before we enter the professional workforce
and are forced to live by routines and rules.
But some UF students are thoroughly concerned with be-
ing able to visit campus anywhere at any time. They want the
option of studying, working and traveling every day of the
week, and Sunday bus service is the new plight of Student
We admit it: We told The Gator Party candidates to
champion this cause when they first got elected. We applaud
officials for acting so quickly. But additional research has
changed our minds about the whole thing.
We think the cause is noble enough. In this age of con-
venience, such an idea is attractive. What if, while living on
campus, we realize our long-awaited toga party is missing a
bushel of grapes and our roommate's car is broken? Thank
God there's Sunday bus service so we can make a three-hour
journey to Publix.
Of course, a small number of students actually will use
the service regularly.
But all students will have to pay for extended RTS
campus bus service, and the bill isn't cheap or necessary.
Furthermore, students will be paying for bus routes through
areas not densely populated by students. We'll be picking up
Gainesville's bill and handing residents a free service.
The Transportation Access Fee Committee discussed
getting a grant to cover the cost, and Chairman Bob Miller
inferred that Gainesville would begin to split the tab after a
couple of years.
But we need better assurances than maybes and proba-
blies. We need SG to fight for solid plans that don't add
indefinite and unnecessary fees to tuition.
In the SG elections at the beginning of the semester, both
parties promised to add this service. It's an appealing and
However, a campaign flier doesn't outline the money
needed for such an undertaking.
Now more fees will likely be tacked on to our tuition to
pay for the service. How many times will you use it?
If the university is able to secure a grant, fine. If Gainesville
agrees to take up some of the costs within a short period of
time, go ahead.
But we shouldn't push the service by hiking up students'

The Board of Trustees, UF's highest governing body, will

SG must work to ensure that the student body doesn't fund

But if SG really wants to revive a service that would

Indictment disregards citizen's rights
he Bush administration has both sidestepped a
"Come to Jesus" moment before the U.S. Supreme
Court and nudged America closer to the despot's
door with the conveniently timed indictment of American
citizen and "dirty bomb" suspect Jose Padilla, held in
military custody for three years sans formal charges.
But contrary to earlier statements alleging the "en-
re artant" was letting radiological attacks in the
plotting other crimes with overseas targets.
Despite the new formal charges, the suspected terror-
ist's detention hearing should go on.
SOfficials seek to delay an accounting of conduct that
greatly overshadows any "-gate" American history has
produced by keeping intact a lower court's ruling, which
maddeningly allows the detention of citizens by an abso-
lutely powerful executive.
Padilla's defense argues the case should continue
because the former Chicagoan (or you) could at any
time be reclassified an enemy combatant and detained
indefinitely. But the administration is gambling that the
justices will decline to hear the case by indicting Padilla
before his appeal is heard by a high court.
It would be a miscarriage of justice to allow officials to
avoid this showdown with the Constitution just as some
Americans begin to wonder if that sacred instrument is
little more than Play-Doh.
In order for the government to deprive a citizen of life,
liberty or property, we expect that citizen will enjoy due
process regardless of reprehensibility. We assumed
that America was unlike the old Eastern bloc nations,
where secret police secretly arrested secret people for
secret reasons and secretly sent them to secret prisons
But what happens when we assume? We discover
the CIA has a network of Soviet-era secret prisons in
Justin Hemlepp So we stand, citizens with a
Speaking Out proud heritage of righting wrongs
and making good our evils, left
looking like asses because we de-
tain our own citizens incommunicado to protect free-
dom, and ship non-citizens off to...
Well, we don't know exactly. A CIA prison could be
nice, right? Even Gitmo is at the beach, which is just
bill denying them habeas corpus rights becomes law.
"Our influence in the world is directly affected by
our actions with respect to those we detain," wrote the
American Bar Association's president in a statement urg-
ing members to implore senators to reconsider the bill.
So, we must beg our legislators to uphold the
Constitution they were sworn to "support and defend
... against all enemies, foreign and domestic"? Who, or
what, have we become?
Our flagrant disregard for simple constitutional prin-
ciples is the surest sign that this "shining city on a hill"
has lost its luster, that our nation no longer holds the
moral high ground that the terrorists are winning.
As the world watches us backpedal from democratic
ideals, what legitimacy we bring to the table in market-
ing democracy abroad is criminally diminished. It could
be that our discarded credibility will land in the hands of
"evildoers" a danger comparable to handing Osama

Letters to the Editor
Treason is relative, changes with time
One would think that as a journalism
major, Andrew Bare ("Confederate flag is
a symbol of treason") would know that
treason, like just about everything else, is
Washington, Jefferson and our other
Founding Fathers chose to rebel against
England, which at the time was an act of
treason. The only reason these men are
viewed as heroes and not traitors is be-
cause they were on the winning side. Had
the Revolutionary War been lost, the only
people to remember the Founding Fathers
would be a handful of history buffs insisting
on honoring their forefathers despite the fact
that they were supporting a losing cause.
The same is true of Lee and other
Confederate heroes. They chose to defend
their homeland, which at the time was the
Confederate States of America. Whether
one considers the secession of the southern
states right or wrong is irrelevant.
Before he graduates, Mr. Bare should add
a few more history courses to his curricu-
lum. He might learn about Stephen Decatur,
a Revolutionary War hero who said, "Our
country, in her intercourse with foreign
nations, may she always be right, but our
country right or wrong." From 1861-65, the
state in which I was born was part of the
Confederate States of America, and during
that period, my forefathers served what, at
the time, was their country.
Although I served in the U.S. Navy, I am
proud of my Confederate forebears and will
continue to fly the Stars and Bars in their
honor. To Mr. Bare: Don't you dare call me,
or anyone else who has placed his life on the
line to protect your right to express your asi-
nine opinions, a traitor!
Confederate soldiers deserve respect
I beg to differ on the subject of Andrew
Bare'sWednesday column. I cannot believe
that someone would write such an ignorant
column, and that a newspaper would actu-
ally print it.
The Confederate flag is not in any way a
symbol of treason or rebellion. My seventh
cousin, Robert E. Lee, one of the greatest
generals in American history, was not a trai-
tor, nor was Gen. Jackson or President Davis.
You know what they were? Patriots. How
dare you call them "traitors" or "re)eflious."
All of my grandfathers on every/side of my
family from Tennessee, Texas, Alabama,
Louisiana, Mississippi and Arkansas fought
in the Confederate army, not one of _them
owned slaves, and they weren't fighting
for slavery, either. The Confederate soldiers
were the true American patriots, fighting
for the principles, the morals and the rights
that their forefathers, like Thomas Jefferson,
George Washington and so many others,
fought for and believed in.
The South is my homeland, and my
grandfathers were all Confederate officers
and soldiers, so don't write things that be-
little them and what they fought for. The
Confederacy and its soldiers, whether white,
black, Hispanic, Native American, Jewish,
Irish or Scottish, all deserve honor, and boy
howdy, they're going to get it from me.
God Save Dixie.
Clyde, Texas resident
Mascot offensive to Native Americans
It is apparent that the editorial staff and
cartoonist of the Alligator are unaware of
the issues involved in the abolishment of
mascots depicting Native Americans. This
issue is offensive to many persons native
and non-native alike, the Seminole Inc. of.
Florida excluded. Your cartoon is one of the
most blatant reasons that mascots should
not depict another culture. It implies that
the killing of Indians is OK; this is just one of
the issues that Native Americans find objec-
tionable. It is time that UF and the Alligator
stop promoting the attitude that it is all right
to encourage racist and violent behavior
, against Native Americans.
Cartoon abandons tolerance, decency
Native Americans have a legitimate
right to some control over their public im-
age. How does the tradition of a college
sports team compare with the dignity of the
original American ethnic group? The team
should consider a different name. Adding to
the gross injustices Native Americans have
suffered, it's not necessary to poke fun in
Think of various other ethnic groups,
including your own, as a substitute for the
Native American in the cartoon. Do you
suppose other heritage groups would accept
the role without complaint? Not likely.
Some Americans scoff at "political cor-
rectness" or "being p.c." This encourages
people to abandon tolerance, common de-
cency and mutual respect. If we throw out
these qualities, we are preparing to throw
out civilization itself.

FSU 7 UF34
Lineman Hand gets reception
UF tackle Randy Hand breaks away from FSU linebacker AJ. Nichol-
son for a 1-yard run in the third quarter of UF's 34-7 victory.
By ERIC ESTEBAN and
Alligator Staff Writers
Offensive tackle Randy Hand
won't be striking -Heisman poses
anytime soon, but his 1-yard rush
off a Leak lateral pass in the third
quarter was a first for the senior.
"That big 1-yard gain was a
big play," Meyer said jokingly.
"We felt like down there they
were really tightening up with
an excellent red-zone defense
and we thought we'd get them to
pursue the ball."
Meyer actually started offen-
sive lineman Phil Trautwein in
the tight end spot but didn't get
SOMETHING SPECIAL: Florida
State's special teams came into
the Swamp on a hot streak, block-
ing three punts in two games.
Defensive tackle Marcus Thomas'
hand changed that in an instant.
The Gators were only up 7-0
when Gary Cismesia lined up
for a routine 44-yard field goal.
At the snap, Thomas hopped on
a Seminole offensive lineman
before pushing forward and de-
flecting the ball into the backfield
where cornerback Reggie Lewis
picked it up in stride returning it
52 yards for a touchdown.
"When I saw all that grass in
front of me, and I looked up and
saw no one was behind me, my
thing was just get into the end
zone," Lewis said.
It was Thomas' second
blocked kick in as many games,
and the first time in UF recorded
history that the Gators had re-
turned a blocked field goal for a
"Play of the day," Meyer said.
"I thought our special teams was

wasn't a record crowd, the holi-
day weekend didn't keep more

Although many students were
trying to sell tickets throughout
the week online so they could re-
main on vacation, numerous fans
were trying to buy scalped tickets
outside the Swamp Saturday af-
ternoon, and 90,669 ended up at-
tending the game, good for third
best in Florida Field history.
BACK-TO-BACK: UF's victory
marked the first time in nearly
20 years that the Gators defeated
Florida State in back-to-back
regular season games. The Gators
defeated FSU six straight times
from 1979-86 and hasn't racked
up consecutive victories in the
regular season series since.
The Gators did beat the
Seminoles twice in a row after
defeating FSU in the Sugar Bowl
to win the 1996 national cham-
pionship and then beating No. 2
FSU in the 1997 regular-season
showdown in Gainesville. -A
MUST SEE TV: Though the stakes
might have-been lower- in this
year's Florida-Florida State game
than in past clashes between the
two bitter in-state rivals, the
game was still shown to a na-
tional television audience arid
CBS broadcast, U.S. troops in
Afghanistan were shown watch-
ing the game overseas.
Many of the troops didn't just
show support for their nation.
Orange and blue and garnet
and gold replaced the tradi-
tional camouflaged gear as the
troops cheered on the Gators and
RISING: After defeaitng FSU,
the Gators jumped up two spots
in the AP Top 25 to No. 17. The
Seminoles dropped out of the
rankings following UF's 34-7

Meyer announced that walk-on
place kicker Chris Hetland had
earned a scholarship. Hetland, a
junior, converted on field goals
of 34 and 44 yards against FSU ...

.DREWj from page 20
In a season deemed Southern
Reconstruction, four SEC teams
finished with two or less confer-
ence losses, and a fifth South
Carolina has three blemishes
of its own, but managed to de-
feat the Gators to get a heads up
in the bowl sweepstakes.
Here's further proof that
the bowl system doesn't work
and the BCS needs to remove
the letter C in its title. A great
Auburn team will be left out
of a top bowl game, FSU is a
single Virginia Tech upset away
from the Orange Bowl (ex-
tremely unlikely, but stranger
things have happened) and
an attractive UF team that
has some national appeal will
likely celebrate the holidays in
Still, it didn't have to end
like this. There's no excuse for
losing to an average Gamecocks
team, even if they were led by
the Goldeft Orr. And UF had
about 10 chances to get back in
the LSU game.
Then again, the Gators
were fortunate to play a D.J.

As the distraught Bobby
Bowden will tell you, the scan-
dalous Charley Pell began his
coaching career at UF with a
0-10-1 record, only to turn the
Gators into national contenders
several years later.
Saturday's game, several top
recruits jumped on the Urban
Mobile. Meyer's future looks
bright. Then again, the future
seems equally as promising
at Georgia, South Carolina,
Alabama, Auburn and LSU, and
even Tennessee will rise again.
If the Gators want to do
more than compete, they will
need perfection. There's no rea-
son to think Meyer can't get it
done eventually. But as Auburn
painfully learned last year, not
even perfection guarantees a
At least you can tease your
friends at FSU for the entire off-
season, right? And if all goes

and the rest of the secondary were burned in two .
"That's a big thing. I didn't know that," Lewis
said. "That makes it even better.
"I don't know why we were playing [so poorly in
the last two games]. We had to prove ourselves and
that's what we did. We came out and proved that
we still have a hell of a good defense."
Starting cornerback Dee Webb, who has been
inconsistent throughout the season and his career,
also stepped up in Brown's absence, racking up six
tackles and forcing a fumble.

The one-thing UF's defense didn't achieve was
recording the shutout the entire unit had strived
for all year. They came close, holding the Seminoles
scoreless until a touchdown with 6:35 remaining in
the game gave FSU its 7 points.
"I wanted it bad, there's nothing like a goose
egg," defensive end Jeremy Mincey said. "We didn't
get it, but we won and it was a good victory, a pretty
victory, and I'm proud of that much."
Recruits want to bring prominence back

in my commitment was definitely
the comfort level and my relation-
ships with the coaches and the
players and just the university in
Fayson is looking forward to
contributing early for the Gators.
"They're going to find ways to
get the ball in my hands," Fayson
said. "I just want to come in and
blend in with the rest of the team
and help out where I can."
Through recruiting camps
and visits, many of the prospects
that UF is recruiting have formed
"When we first started this
process we all thought that it
would be great if we all could go
to the same school," Fayson said.
"But we didn't put any pressure
on each other
Jacques Rickerson, a 5-foot-10,
180-pound cornerback out of St.
Augustine, hopes to come in and
help fill a position that is thin.
"I think the deciding factor
was being able to come in and
play early," Rickerson said.
Bryan Thomas, a 6-foot-2, 192-
pound prospect out of Zephyrhills,
also made a verbal commitment to
play for the Gators and is project-
ed to either play safety or receiver
at the college level.
The influx of new talent to the
football team will play a crucial
role in the program's long-term
success as the Gators attempt to
become an elite SEC team again. ;-
"I keep thinking back and
Hornsby and I talk all the time
about Jacquez Green and those
guys with Coach Spurrier and
all those SEC championships,"
Fayson said. "We want to get
Florida football back to where it
used to be."

Offense comes up big
By IAN FISHER
Alligator Staff Writer
Through all the criticism, through
all the questions of Chris Leak run-
ning UF's new offense, Coach Urban,
Meyer stuck with his quarterback, not
wavering after Leak struggled earlier
in the season.
"You're not going to like what
I'm about to say, but Chad.
Jackson can get a lot better.
Chad Jackson is still learning
how to play wide receiver."
UF football coach
On Saturday, Meyer's own daugh-
ter Nicole was wearing a t-shirt with
"Leak" and "12" plastered across the
Perhaps the shirt brought Leak
some luck, because Meyer said it was
Leak that won the game for UE.
Leak passed for an efficient 211
yards and two touchdowns on 19-of-
"Chris Leak has been through
a lot," Meyer said. "He has been
through a lot of ups and downs. That
was a big-time win. A lot of people say
he's never really won a game. I really
felt lik e stepped up the Tennessee
game and did as much as anybody to
win that game, and I felt that way out
On the receiving end of many of
Leak's passes was go-to receiver Chad
Jackson, who finished with nine catch-
es for 97 yards and a touchdown. He
has caught a pass in 23 straight games
and a touchdown in three straight.
Jackson now has 81 catches on the
season, seven short of the UF record
set by Carlos Alvarez in 1969. Jackson
still has the bowl game to match or
break the record.
That being said, Meyer was criti-
cal of Jackson, as he has been all year.
Jackson has never made Meyer's
Champion's Club, despite leading the
team with 11 touchdowns.
"You're not going to like what I'm
about to say, but Chad Jackson can
get a lot better," Meyer said. "Chad
Jackson is still learning how to play
Receiver Jemalle Cornelius had
two diving catches one for 23 yards,
the other for nine. Leak said after the
game that he just has to get the ball
anywhere near Cornelius for him to
make a play.
Dallas Baker also added a receiving
Despite all the positives on offense,
Meyer said it could have been a lot bet-
ter. Leak overthrew receivers all night,
and the one interception he made
came on an overthrow.
"You even saw tonight that there
were a lot of plays that could've been
made," Meyer said, adding that Leak
misfired on some of them. "Chad
Jackson got behind the defense once
or twice. We're still not a big-play of-
fense. Our longest play today was 33
yards and that was Tate Casey when
he fumbled the ball."

He didn't hear the news that this
year's Florida-Florida State rivalry
didn't mean a thing.
With the Gators out of contention
for a Southeastern Conference title and
an outside shot at the Outback Bowl

the UF junior cornerback found a
reason greater than any to defeat the
Seminoles: Vernell Brown.
In an emotionally charged locker

And while Brown, who suffered a
broken leg against Vanderbilt on Nov.

sideline, it was Webb who played like it
was his last game, forcing a fumble and
recording six tackles.
But it was the least Webb could do
to send Brown and UF's nine other
scholarship seniors who weathered
heartaches and a coaching change dur-
ing recent seasons out in style.

called Brown the face of UF football.

It's a direction that Gators seniors

gladly take pride in initiating.

* UF ENTERS NCAA TOURNAMENT
AS NO. 8 SEED IN OMAHA REGION.
By BRYAN JONES
Eager to discover their NCAA tourna-
ment fate, the No. 4 UF volleyball team
performed what Coach. Mary Wise jokingly
deemed a miracle.
Traveling home after sweeping two
weekend matches in Denver, the team
convinced the Chili's near their gate at the
airport to change the television station from
football to the NCAA volleyball tournament
selection show on ESPNews.
That miracle turned out to be unfulfill-
ing, however. Rushed onto the plane, the
team did not learn their fate until shortly
"We found out through the beauty of
cell phone," Wise said. "It's a good thing
we were in the first half to be announced.
Otherwise we wouldn't have found out
until we landed.
'"It was a little different because in the
past we have all been together. We weren't,
we were all spread out and buckled in and
we were yelling it back and forth."

Gators were named the eighth seed in this
year's tournament and will host the first
two rounds, beginning Thursday.
'UF (30-2) will take on Florida Atlantic

Conference, in the opening round of the
tournament. Kansas State (20-10) and Mid-
Eastern Athletic Conference champion
Florida A&M (22-5) will also square off
Thursday in the O'Connell Center.
The second round match will take place
"What we learned last year is that being
right now we are thrilled to be one of the 16
teams that gets to play at home," Wise said.
Last season, the Gators lost in the second
round to Stanford.
"Florida's probably going to be a team
that has a little bit to prove in this tour-
nament," ESPN volleyball analyst Cathy
Nelson said. "They are very good at home
but last year they did lose to Stanford, the

Wise just a few years ago that
in the 2005 season we'd
get six teams in, I'm not sure I would have
believed it," Wise said. "Credit the talent
and the coaches in the league."
Despite being ranked fourth in the
country in the AVCA poll, the No. 8 seed
awarded to the Gators puts them in the
Omaha Regional a region topped by No.
1 seed Nebraska.
But the Gators will not get caught look-
ing head, Wise said, and the team is just
excited about the opportunity to play the
opening rounds at home.
"It's one more chance for our fans to see

By NICK ZACCARDI
Sha Brooks didn't have the

nine minutes of the Gators' 85-56
blowout victory of Stetson at the
She looked well on her way
to breaking the Gators' single-
game record of eight threes set by
Bridget Pettis, but a runaway win
kept her on the bench for much of
the second half.
Her spark led the Gators to a

only attempted one 3-pointer
in the second half of the home
Brooks, who led the team with
19 points, didn't show the same
accuracy from long range in prac-

the "green light" drill.
To complete the exercise suc-
cessively, the player must make
25 3-pointers in two minutes from
different spots on the court.
Brooks didn't make the "green

I FSU trash talk inspired UF
Defensive plays sealed win
By FARZAD SAFI
Alligator Staff Writer
In the week leading up to the
Florida State game, Coach Urban
Meyer believed that his offense
needed "big plays" in order for
the Gators to win.
But it wasn't Meyer that neces-
sarily motivated the Gators.
After UF's loss to South
Carolina two weeks ago, FSU run-
ning back Lorenzo Booker said
that the Gators did not even be-
long on the same field with FSU.
"It's personal when you talk
trash to somebody and I took
Booker's comments personally,"
Siler said. "I think half of the emo-
tion we had out there was from
the disrespect they showed us."
Booker finished with only four
yards on six carries and had Siler
to deal with after every carry.
I "Whenever anybody talks
trash, before the game I remind
them of the quote they said every
time I hit them," Siler said.
"I'm not going to sit here and
say that FSU had a great offense,"
Siler said. "For them to come and
rip us apart before the game and
for us to go out and whoop them,
I'm not going to show them any
So in Saturday's 34-7 romp at
the Swamp, a motivated defense
and special teams made big play
after big play.
While Meyer wasn't com-
pletely satisfied with hiu offense'
execution against the Seminoles,.
the defense made sure that FSU's
offense could not get going.
"Whenever anybody talks
trash before the game I
remind them of the quote
they said every time I hit
The Gators recorded two inter-
ceptions, two fumble recoveries, a
blocked field goal, five sacks and
a turnover on downs in the lop-
sided victory. All came courtesy
of the defense.
The game easily could have
turned the Seminoles' way early,
if not for extraordinary plays like
the blocked field goal.
FSU was back in the game
when quarterback Chris Leak had
an interception returned to the
Kicker Gary Cismenia lined up
for a 44-yard field goal that would
have made it a 7-3 game.
Defensive tackle Marcus
Thomas had other plans. Thomas
lifted himself over two Seminoles
to block the attempt and corner-
back Reggie Lewis returned it 52
yards to make it a 14-0 lead for the
"The blocked field goal that
Reggie Lewis returned for a
touchdow& was the play of the
day," Meyer said.
Suddenly, a 14-point lead
seemed vast in a game where both
offenses were held in check by the
"That would have been a big
momentum change for Florida
State if they had made the field
goal," Lewis said. "Luckily, it
went the opposite way, and I was
able to come up with a big play for

began to threaten with about five

Top recruits commit to UF after FSU win

The old saying "To the winner goes the

commitments for the 2006 recruiting class

we're always together," Hornsby said.
Brandon James, Rickerson's brother and
teammate, is expected to make his decision
in the next couple days.
Fayson, a 6-foot-2, 195-pound prospect
and the top receiver in the southeast, said
after the game he felt like the time was right.
"Everything was great," Fayson said.
