Domestic partners covered by benefits
* UF APPROVES HEALTHCARE FOR
By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Gay and lesbian partners of UF employ-
ees will soon qualify for healthcare benefits.
UF's highest governing body, the Board
of Trustees, extended the university's health
benefits to all interdependent couples dur-
ing its Friday meeting.
Administrators plan for the program to
take effect Feb. 1.
UF Human Resources Director Kyle
Cavanaugh said without the benefits, UF
has been at a competitive disadvantage
compared to some of its peer schools.
UF is the first Florida public university
to offer the benefits, but several of its peer
institutions already do, such as the univer-
sities of Michigan, Minnesota and Utah.
Cavanaugh said 295 schools nationwide
offer the benefits,
U F including 23 of the
Administration top 25.
"We have lost
some faculty because of this, and we have
had some say they weren't coming because
of this," Cavanaugh said.
Trustee Al Warrington cast the sole vote
against the benefit plan, denouncing it as
morally, ethically and scripturally wrong.
"I've got probably more gay friends than
anybody around this room," he said in an
interview before the meeting. "I just hate

Gators to face
Iowa in Outback
By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
UF's postseason doesn't look so terrible after all.
While the Gators were bracing for the possibil-
ity of playing in the Dec. 30 Independence Bowl in
Shreveport, La., Urban Meyer and Co. learned they
will ring in the new year in a familiar place at the
Outback Bowl in Tampa.
UF played in the Outback Bowl in both the 2002 and
2003 seasons under Ron Zook, fall-
ing to Michigan and Iowa.
This year's game which takes
place on Jan. 2 because of NFL
games on New Years' Day pits the
a Gators against Iowa once again.
"They're extremely talented and
physical," said Meyer of the No. 25
Hawkeyes (7-4). "You don't play in the Big Ten unless
you're physical. But you look at the defenses in the
SEC, and this is a very physical conference as well."
The Outback is generally reserved for the No. 3
team in the Southeastern Conference, but the Outback
committee chose the sixth-place Gators despite having
the option of selecting Louisiana State, a team that lost
just one regular season SEC game to UF's three, and
defeated UF in October.
LSU will face Miami in the Peach Bowl.
The committee also could have invited Steve
Spurrier's South Carolina team. The Gamecocks fin-
ished with an identical conference record as the Gators
and defeated UF in the SEC finale.
Outback Bowl President/CEO Jim McVay said the-
Gators' wins'against SEC champion Georgia and ACC
champion Florida State greatly bolstered their resume,

Survey to determine effects of UF alcohol policies
* TWO THOUSAND FOOTBALL FANS
RECEIVED THE QUESTIONNAIRE.
By EMILY KISER
Alligator Contributing Writer
UF officials are gathering the potentially
sobering details about new gameday alcohol
policies implemented this season through a
survey of football fans.
In a survey sent to 2,000 Gators football fans
last week, the Alcohol and Drug Education
Policy Committee aimed to find out which
programs worked for the 2005 football season,
which didn't and what changes can be made
to ensure a safer season in 2006.
"When we are looking at our policies and
changing those policies, especially with alco-
hol, we really need to have data to back up our
suggestions," said Maureen Miller, alcohol
and drug prevention specialist at the Student
Health Care Center.
Miller said the survey was e-mailed to
1,000 student ticket holders and 1,000 non-
student ticket holders after the FSU game in
Gainesville. The results will help determine
the public's reaction to the Game Day Task
Force's public-relations efforts and how much
students really drink on game days.
"This gives us a better idea of who's drink-
ing more males or females, students or
non-students," Miller said. "Past surveys have
shown people are drinking more on game
days than when they go out and socialize or
party. There is a heightened environment and
The survey is a part of a comprehensive
approach taken by the committee, University
Police, Gainesville Police and the University
"It is a mass campaign to work with people
and to educate people to be responsible and
act responsible," Miller said. "Really we are
just trying to make the culture and environ-
ment safe for students."
The survey asks participants to list the num-
ber of alcoholic beverages consumed on a nor-
mal game day compared to a typical night of
socializing. The results will help the committee
gauge perception and potential misrepresenta-
tion of gameday drinking.
Student Industrial engineering senior
Life Ross Morris said the survey top-
ics were nothing new.
"I thought it was a little ridiculous, with
some of the questions and how they were
phrased," Morris said.
Miller said she was unsure if the survey
results would be directly connected to future
changes in UF's alcohol policies.
"We need to know if people are in support
of changing policy, and if so, what can we do
to make that happen," Miller said. "For the
most part, the people that don't drink on game
day are more looking for the policy changes."
UF would not be alone if future gameday
alcohol policy changes were implemented.
On Nov. 5, Yale University implemented a
new tailgating policy that requires all tailgates
to end after halftime. At that point, fans must
go to the game or leave the area, according
to Yale University's official athletic Web site.
On the same day, Columbia University also
unveiled its new tailgating procedures that
include a new tailgating zone and security
guards checking IDs at the gates, according to
the Columbia University athletic Web site.
"Schools across the country are experienc-
ing high drinking levels," Miller said. "It is not
just UF who is unique to this issue."
Miller said the surveys will be sent out
once more to the initial recipients before the
Dec. 12 deadline. The policy committee will
start reviewing the results next month.
"Our goal is to make game day as safe as
possible," Miller said. "We just hope that stu-
dents take the time to fill the survey out."

but he admitted that the allure of
having UF play in Tampa likely
clinched UF's Outback bid.
"We wanted to bring Florida
in here," McVay said. "It's our
20th anniversary, this made sense.
This is going to be a quick sellout,
people are going to have to act
very fast if they want to be a part
of this game."
Meyer made sure that much of
the top high school talent in the
nation was well aware that UF
will be playing on Jan. 2.
"The minute I heard, other
than [telling] my wife, the phone
calls I made were to recruits be-
cause I think that's critical," he
said. "When you say Jan. 1, Jan.
2 and then you say the Outback
Bowl, and then you say you're
playing against a team with a
great reputation like Iowa, I think
that does wonders.
"It's good for recruiting and
it's great for our team."
Outback officials made a sur-
prising move by inviting Iowa

will face Nebraska'in the Dec. 28

UF has struggled against some
of the SEC's upper-echelon de-
fenses, and Iowa presents another
challenge. The Hawkeyes' de-
fense ranks No. 3 in the Big Ten.

The Gators *have nearly
a month to prepare for the
Hawkeyes, and for the next
month UF's coaches can point to
the Outback Bowl bid as proof
that the program isn't taking a
step backward under Meyer.
"Anytime you play a Jan. 1
or 2 bowl, [there's] the prestige
and the fact that players come to
Florida to play in bowl games. I
think that's critical.

Participants walk, run for research
By KENDRA GENTRY
Alligator Contributing Writer
After seven years, Kenya
native Catherine Odera said
it was time to face the voices
that have troubled her since
her father's death in 1998.
In addition to being diag-
nosed with diabetes, Odera's
father had also tested HIV
positive due to a blood trans-
fusion, she said.
For years after his death,
Odera chose not to reveal his
medical history, even after
moving to the United States.
"I used to be afraid and
just said my dad only had
diabetes," she said. "I wanted
him to keep his dignity."
On Sunday, Odera par-
ticipated in the World AIDS
Marathon's 5K Fun Walk, her
first HIV-related activity since
her father's death.
"I did it to give a human
side to all of those voices,"
This time, Odera did
not walk alone. Along with
about 85 other participants,
she walked through campus
Sunday, many wearing red
ribbons signifying hope for
an HIV/AIDS cure.

Marathon events included

Saturday at the Paramount
Plaza Hotel and Suites on
Southwest 13th Street.
The entire weekend of ac-
tivities raised approximately
$10,000 for AIDS research at
UF and for AIDS and cancer
.charities. According to the
marathon's Web site, Janet
Yamamoto, a professor at
the College of Veterinary
Medicine, donated $1,000.
Yamamoto was the first to
gain commercial marketing
approval from the USDA for
a feline HIV vaccine.
Between 4(fand 45 interns,
including students in an HIV

His presentation, which featured graphic
pictures of AIDS-infected patients, left many
audience members cringing.

Campus people infected with the disease
do not have any symptoms.
"There is no real way to tell if someone is in-
fected unless you have them repeatedly tested
and are positive they are not engaging in any
harmful activities," he said.
The Indian Student Association and Club
Creole dance teams performed at the event to
emphasize that AIDS is not an "African dis-
ease," but a global pandemic.
"The disease is spreading rapidly in indi-
viduals in Asia, India and Eastern Europe,"
said Hansjoerg Dilger, a professor of African
Owoidoho Silas, president of the African
Student Union, said that the event, although
focused on the stifling presence of AIDS inter-

6, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, DECEMBER 5,2005
Classes are almost over, and the Editorial Board is almost
dead from exhaustion. There is no ink in our pens, no mo-
tivation to our inspiration, no coherence to our words. We
simply cannot go on as before.
So, we're falling back on what we do best: criticizing oth-
ers for our own amusement. With only three issues of the
Alligator remaining this year, we feel that a year in review,
Darts & Laurels style, is in order.
Our victim today is Student Government. We're going
to hold them responsible for the past, in hopes that they'll
reform in the future. Also, creating DARTS for them was just
ridiculously easy. We have papers to write and finals to study
for; writing about anything else seemed like a task.
Tomorrow we'll take on UF administration, and
Wednesday is reserved for city and state issues.
So buy a red Sharpie, put on your reading glasses and get
ready to evaluate as we begin this week's first edition of...
Darts & Laurels
We first shoot a please-stop-treading-water-and-learn-
from-this-technical-disaster DART for this Fall's Internet
voting fiasco. Instead of allowing students to vote through
their GatorLink accounts, SG officials limited computer vot-
ing to specific locations on campus. The results were long
lines, failing computers and chaos. ,
We're sick of the excuses. Allowing students to vote from
home is definitely, definitively and unarguably secure. We
put our credit-card numbers through GatorLink, we sign up
for classes through GatorLink, and we enter loads of per-
sonal information through GatorLink. Voting for SG officials
ranks way below these actions in privacy importance.
Staying on the same topic, we slingshot a will-you-ever-
forever-and-ever DART for conducting business as usual
during the Fall elections. The Impact Party obviously had
a more thought-out and student-friendly agenda, but the
Gator Party mysteriously won by an overwhelming majority.
Not even the armies of loyal Alligator readers could stop the
madness. So much for changing the world through journal-
ism. We give up.
While we're on the subject of the Gator Party, we also lob a
your-existence DART for spending thousands of dollars on
SG public relations campaigns. Officials created incredibly
pathetic television commercials and bought all sorts of SG-
emblazoned knickknacks without relaying any new informa-
tion to the student body.
Of course, Florida Blue Key has already figured out why it
should be involved. Having friends in the right places might
allow you to pillage the $11 million SG jackpot.
We fling an SG-reserves-can't-keep-Growl-afloat-for-
ever DART for giving Gator Growl officials $140,000 in
ticket subsidies, plus an extra loan from Student Government
Productions. If it hadn't been for Vice President of Student
Affairs Patricia Telles-Irvin, SG would have doled out
$340,000. That's a lot of money to give a private organization
for one night of festivities.
If SG continues to hold this huge soft spot for Gator
Growl, officials will never learn how to keep student ticket
prices low or Growl afloat without extra student funds.
But we don't think SG is completely full of bad eggs. We
bestow a keep-on-truckin'-despite-all-the-crap-flung-your-
way LAUREL on all the political groups that didn't win in
the Spring and Fall elections. Progress showed promise in
the face of hopelessness in the Spring, and the Impact Party
succeeded in pushing through a few senators this Fall. But
our favorite political titan is Dan Fitzpatrick, who organized
a campaign in the Spring aimed at making himself dictator of
SG. His aspirations at staging a "bloody coup" failed, but his
ideals of an SG openly controlled by an evil dictator appealed
to our search for truth.
The Iron Fist will always be close to our hearts.

Death penalty needs careful scrutiny
here was a time when executions were festivals of
punishment and cruelty, gruesomely performed in
public squares. There were no medieval debaters
justifying execution for its ability to deter crime, or at-
tackers arguing that the merits of evidence did not justify
the terrible finality of state-sanctioned death. There was
only a public. A public wittingly and self-consciously im-
plicated in the death of one of its own, deriving satisfac-
tion in the killing of those who would disrupt the peace
and stability of their communities.
Today we are 'told this is barbarism. We enlightened
Americans do not string up horse thieves on cold desert
nights without written approval from the county judge,
at the very least.
Instead, we are disinterested administers of the sci-
ence of justice. The execution itself is perversely per-
formed with the sterile precision "of surgery, as if justice
were a matter of finding the correct medicinal mixture
and applying it to the criminal bacteria.
Gov. Mark Warner, a Virginia Democrat, granted
clemency Tuesday to convicted killer Robin Lovitt, a man
whose defense counsel was at one time the infamous
Kenneth Starr, the special prosecutor made famous by
the Monica Lewinsky scandal. Lovitt's execution would
have been the 1,000th since 1976, when the Supreme
Court ruled in favor of overturning the ban on capital
Warner argued the profundity of capital punishment
outweighed the mishandling of the state's criminal case
against Lovitt, which included the inappropriate dis--
carding of the alleged murder weapon, thereby making
a fair appeal all but impossible given the DNA resources
of today's crime fighting. Lovitt will still have to serve
a term of life imprisonment without the possibility of
Guagiardo Capital punishment is a hard
Speaking Out thing to defend to our enlightened
ears. We want disinterested reasons
to kill a man an argument based
in necessity. We are supplied these arguments deter-
rence, justice and so forth. But these reasons never quite
strike our sensitive ears with that clear tone of certitude
we expect when we are about to end someone's life.
As William Munny said in Clint Eastwood's Western
classic "Unforgiven" as he's about to blow Gene
Hackman straight to hell, "Deserve's got nothing' to do
with it." And indeed, what a criminal deserves plays an
ambivalent role in the administration of punishment.
We want to punish those who have wronged us, and we
want to hurt them. This is an uncomfortable truth for us
humanitarians but a truth nonetheless.
As a community, we have a need to protect ourselves
from subversion, and therefore we quash what may harm
us. We imprison, we execute, we make war.
The question is, "What do we need to keep us stable?"
Because I'm admittedly torn on the issue, I do not pre-
tend to offer answers. However, it is only because we
enjoy relative safety and security that we can debate the
rights of the criminal. Imagine how ludicrous the idea
of criminals' rights would've been in less stable societies
- in the streets of 10th century Brussels or 15th century
We have the social luxury and the tools of DNA re-
search to prosecute with certainty.
But before we commit the 1,000th act of state-sanc-
tioned murder, let's make sure we want that kind- of
justice on our hands.

'Intelligent design' claims are testable
In Tuesday's "Scientific theories more than
guesses," Jonathan Hoffman quoted Thomas
Harrington, who said scientific theories are
"testable and falsifiable," then insisted "intel-
ligent design" "does not meet these criteria:
How do you falsify the hypothesis of the in-
teraction of a higher being? By. disproving the
existence of God?"
But "intelligent design" doesn't state mere-
ly that certain features of the natural world
Rather, "intelligent design" claims that
design is detectable in certain features of the
natural world, and such specific claims are
For instance, "design" theorist Michael
Behe argues we can detect design in bacterial
flagellum because the tiny rotary motor needs
all of its parts to function.
That's a problem for Darwinian evolution,
which builds from one tiny, functional muta-
tion at a time.
Moreover, standard uniformitarian rea-
soning teaches that systems manifesting an
end-directed arrangement of parts whether
rotary motors or wheelbarrows or mousetraps
- are designed.
Because whenever we learn the causal his-
tory of such a system, it always turns out to
have been designed.
How to falsify Behe's argument? Provide
a detailed evolutionary pathway from simple
ancestor to present motor. The flagellum
might still be designed, but Behe's argument
that such design is detectable would have

Annexation promises higher rent, taxes
An article in Friday's Alligator on the an-
nexation of the area surrounding SFCC stated:
"However, homeowners may only break even
with this benefit because the city has increased
property taxes." It seems incredibly obvious
the renter will not fare any better, either.
If anyone imagines that the landlords will
eat those increased property taxes without
raising their rents, then he or she is a complete
Adding another level of government does
one thing: increase taxes.
It's pretty rare that the benefits accrued
outweigh the tax increases.
The average citizen now works until May
to pay all the taxes, fees and other folderol
applied toward his or her income. Somehow,
our schools never mention to students that the
total tax the Founding Fathers were revolting
over was something less than 5 percent.
They would stand aghast at what we con-
sider acceptable these days.
I predict this vote will mysteriously be
scheduled as it always is, during Spring Break,
whenever that is, requiring the extra effort of
an absentee ballot if a student is to vote.
Somehow, the city and county always
seemingly, manage to "accidentally" disen-
franchise the students with this tactic year
after year after year.

Tuition hike would betray UF principles
Friday's Alligator reported that UF's
highest legislative priority is the ability to
set its own tuition rate. I believe this goal is
Under the current administration, the
-university's goal of becoming a Top 10 institu-
tion has become something of an obsession: a
detriment of much of what has made UF great
in the first place.
For many years, UF has gained a well-de-
served reputation as a world-class education
at an affordable price.
Unfortunately, administrators are now
seeing this as a hindrance rather than an as-
set. Officials point to our low tuition as if it is
something to be corrected.
If UF is given the power to increase tuition
at will, it is at least conceivable that many of
Florida's brightest students may choose to
attend another school for financial reasons.
These issues may not mean much to someone
who was just awarded a $75,000 bonus, as UF
President Bernie Machen was, but it means a
great deal to the families of this state.
Machen also has made it known that
he would prefer to free UF from the Bright
Futures and Florida Prepaid programs as
This further limits the financial options of
His administration has requested that
alumni contact their state representatives to
encourage this action.
Doing so would betray the founding prin-
ciples of the university and its students. The
overriding goal of any public school should
be to serve the citizens of the state. For over
a century, UF has done so with excellence. We
should not destroy that legacy in the pursuit of
a dubious goal.
New political party desperately needed
Why do I get the feeling that our elected of-
ficials in Washington are selling out America,
and all we want to do is sit around complain-
ing whether Wal-Mart should come to town?
Could it be that we can't' see that they can
retire in four years, give themselves a pay raise
every year and give corporations huge tax
breaks for sending our jobs overseas? They're
letting illegal immigrants take the jobs that
don't pay minimum standards while the rich
get richer and the poor get poorer. They got
us into a war we can't win and can't get out
of because they'd be damned if they did and
damned if they didn't. They let oil companies
make billions and their CEOs make millions
while most Americans can't even pay their
credit-card bills. The price of housing is go-
ing out of sight, and it won't be long before
most folks can't afford to own a home, or even
rent one. Our senior citizens are getting fewer
and fewer benefits, wondering whether they
should pay for their medicine or buy a quart of
milk. And we call this the land. of plenty.
Our courts aren't doing much better, ei-
ther. All they want to do is stop the Pledge
of Allegiance in our schools, stop displaying
the Ten Commandments and make us forget
Christmas is the birthday of Jesus.
if we don't start voting out every politician
who is in office, Republican or Democrat, it's
going to get worse. It's time for a people's
party one that will listen to the people and
restore dignity to our nation.
I hope that everyone who goes home for
the Christmas holiday will give thanks to
what we do have, and pray for our troops
overseas, wherever they might be.

Lighting opens season
lim Hussin, Alligator Sbatt
Neal Birmingham, 38, balances a candle between
bricks by the Christmas tree after an ensemble of UF
choirs sang carols in front of it Sunday.
By STACEY WROBLE
Alligator Contributing Writer
In an evening of song and cheer,
UF's College of Fine Arts and the
Reitz Union Board, sponsored by
Student Government, presented a
holiday program Sunday with al-
most as much history as its nation-
ally famous cousin in Rockefeller
The college's annual Sounds
of the Season concert kicked off
the celebration in the University
Bringing together four choirs, a
recorder quintet and a brass choir,
the concert was directed by School
of Music staff members Will Kesling
and professor Ronald Burrichter.
Featuring Renaissance hymns,
traditional carols and contempo-
rary favorites, the concert offered a
broad spectrum of holiday music.
"I'm not formally trained in
Western classical music, but it's
different and really good," said
Sridhar Srinivasan, a graduate stu-
dent and concert attendant.
All in attendance were provided
with lit candles. Led by the choirs,
a sea of lights advanced toward the
Reitz Union North Lawn to witness
an event steeped in UF tradition
- the tree-lighting ceremony.
Led by Kesling, the choirs contin-
ued in song. After running through
four holiday numbers, UF first lady
Chris Machen spoke to the crowd.
"The sounds of the season were
absolutely beautiful," she said be-
fore signaling to senior electrician
Rick Murray, who lit the tree.
Guests were later directed to
the Reitz Union Colonnade, where
Reitz Union Board members dis-
tributed holiday cookies and apple
While not quite as old as the
Rockefeller Center tree, which
was first raised in 1937, the UF
tradition started in 1957 with a
holiday concert always following
In the past, the ceremony was
held on the north side of the
University Auditorium, facing
the Plaza of the Americas. But the
original cedar tree eventually grew
to a size that made its trimming too
In 1987, the tree-lighting ceremo-
ny was moved to the North Lawn,
and a new cedar was lit.
Standing a majestic 45 feet
tall, the current tree is covered by
nearly 1,200 multicolored lights. Its
asymmetrical shape garnered a few
laughs from the crowd, who looked
up awestruck as it was lit.
"[The ceremony] is a symbol of
Christmas. It's for the entire univer-
sity," Murray said.
What: UF Crristmas Tree
Where: Retz Uniion North Lawn
The Tradition: The tiee lighting cer-
emony started in 1957 ana li has always
followed a holiday concert.
Tree Facts: About 40 feet tall, the cedar
tree is covered with nearly 1.200 lights.

Brewer soars in blowout win
I FORWARD SCORES 25
POINTSS IN 80-47 VICTORY.
By DAN TREAT
As if the 16 points he had al-
eady poured in hadn't proved
hat it was Corey Brewer's day,
ds second 3-pointer of the day
With UF already holding a 52-
26 lead, Brewer stood in front of
the UF bench, rose and fired. His
shot clanged off the back rim.
In a stroke of luck, however,
the ball flew high
in the air, bounced

Basketball backboard and

All Brewer could do was
Graham Hunley / Alligator
'orey Brewer goes for an easy dunk in the second half of UF's win
against UCF. Brewer finished with a career-high 25 points.
And in a game that was billed
as the Gators against Central
Florida, Brewer turned it into his
own personal show. He finished
with a career-high 25 points,
seven rebounds and five steals
as No. 11 UF (7-0) pulled away
in the second half to defeat the
Golden Knights (4-1) 80-47. t was
Billy Donovan's 200th win as the
Gators' head coach.
"He's hard to guard," UCF
coach Kirk Speraw said. "He can
shoot over people, he can slash,
he has the ability to put down a
perimeter jumper, and he'll get
better at shooting, too."
Brewer began to take over the
game late in the first half, when
he scored 7 of the Gators final
11 points, including an acrobatic
windmill dunk from just inside
the free-throw line to push the
lead out to 36-23 at the half.
The Brewer show continued in
the second half. He had a reverse
dunk along the baseline ard an
alley-oop layup from Taurean
Green that Brewer twisted his
body around in midair to con-
The high-altitude outburst
came as no surprise to his team-
"You've got to be careful, be-
cause he will jump over you and
dunk on you," said 6-foot-11- for-
ward Joakim Noah who finished
with 13 points. "I've seen him
do some pretty crazy things. I'm
not going to put anybody on the
spot, but people did get dunked
on including me."
In addition to his acrobatics,
Brewer was a defensive catalyst
who finished with a third of UF's
season-high 15 steals.
His play overshadowed one
of the best games of Al Horford's
The sophomore center finished
with a career-high 17 points and
four steals, and he showed his
ability to run the Gators' fast
break UF scored 34 points off
of 19 UCF turnovers.
"Like I said in the beginning,
we're hungry and I think that
running just adds to that because
teams get tired after awhile,"
Noah said. "It's not just the press;

UF advances to Omaha
By BRYAN JONES
Jane Collymore has a flair for
The senior closed the door on
Alabama and the Southeastern
Conference volleyball tournament
by tallying what will go down as
the final kill in the history of the
tournament. With match point
in the second round of the NCAA
Tournament Friday night, in her
final career match at the O'Connell
Center, the All-American's number
was called again.
And once again, she delivered.
With that final kill, eighth-
seeded UF defeated Kansas State
3-0 (30-21, 31-29, 30-25), propelling
the Gators into the Sweet 16.
While the match ended in a
sweep, it was anything but an easy
victory for the Gators.
"The 3-0 win is not reflective of
how competitive this match was
and how dose it was," Coach Mary
Wise said. "We had to play very
well to beat this team."
Thirty points wasn't enough in
game two, as Kansas State pushed
the Gators to a 31-29 score.
In game three, UF fell behind
24-21 when Mary Wise decided to
call a timeout. Behind the serving
of sophomore outside hitter Marcie
Hampton, UF would go on to score
nine of the next 10 points to dose
out the match.
"Going to the Sweet 16

"A lot of credit goes to Marcie
Hampton for that serving run she
went on because that was pinpoint

match, but the difference maker for
the Gators may have been sopho-

Non-chalantly, Tebow returned to
the recorders and sharpies, as if noth-

That became apparent with two
minutes left in the first half, when
Tebow fired a 97-yard touchdown
pass to receiver Ryan Ellis.
Nearly backed into his own end
zone, Tebow zipped a pass about 60
yards down the middle of the field,
hitting Ellis in stride between two
"You've got Tim Tebow, and again,
we get to use him one more game and
then let them college guys have him,"
Nease coach Craig Howard said.
"When you've got Tim Tebow, you
can throw from the 1-yard line."
Later, Tebow showed his versatil-
ity, scoring on a 10-yard quarterback
draw and hitting running back
Daunte Owens on a soft screen pass
to give Nease 7 points.
After the game, Tebow answered
questions on his impending decision.
Alabama and UF are the top contend-
ers for his services. He will announce
his decision on ESPN on Dec. 14.
"We just try and pray about it
and find the right place right now,"
Gators fans outnumbered a
strong Alabama contingent at Nease
Stadium, where five UF students
painted their chests in orange and
blue to spell out T-E-B-O-W in the
"Gator fans are awesome, that's
[what] they're like," Tebow said. "It's
a great thing about Florida."
UF upsets Temple
By NICK ZACCARDI
After missing out on the NCAA Tournament last sea-
son, UF is doing its best to impress the selection panel
Defeating a ranked team for the first time since Feb.
29, 2004, certainly helped the Gators' cause.
Thanks to a missed 3-pointer as time expired, UF (5-1)
outlasted No. 18 Temple 58-55 to match its
best start in Coach Carolyn Peck's fourth
year at the helm.
Bo lI "When it comes to RPI ratings as the
time gets toward the end of the season, I
think this game could be a deal breaker of
whether or not you get in or out of the tournament," Peck
said. "I think it's very key that you beat a ranked team on
the road. You get a lot credit when you do that."
Temple's failed bid to force overtime came following
a timeout with eight seconds left when Jennifer Owens'
attempt fell short off the rim.
UF held a 58-52 lead with 20 seconds left but let the

and fellow senior Rachel Engel
finished their O-Dome careers
on a high note.
"Obviously to have a win
and this great of a win was
a good feeling," Engel said.
"Going to the Sweet 16 and just
that feeling of this whole team
in celebration after the game
was a great feeling."
The Gators will move on
to the Omaha Regional, where
they will face No. 9 ranked
Louisville. Should they win, it
would set up a possible match
with Nebraska, the nation's top
"With every win the talent
level of the opponent just in-

we are to play in that next
round will be coming off two
wins and we would expect
them to be more talented. There
are no easy wins left."

Luckily, I was able to obtain a top-
secret advance copy of Meyer's speech
he'll read to Tampa boosters before the
bowl game. Here's an excerpt:
"It's a great day for Florida football.
I want to thank the old, white men that
support the Outback Bowl and happen
to be Gators alumni for inviting us to
the game reserved for the SEC's No. 3
team when we finished, the season as
the SEC's No. 6 team."
Excuse me for not praising the
Gators, but it's awfully clear that
UF doesn't deserve to play in the
Just take a quick glance at the SEC
bowl map, proof No. 1;500 that the
bowl system is a joke.
Georgia won the SEC champion-
ship and heads to the Sugar Bowl
- no complaints here, even though
Auburn is the most talented team in
That's where any semblance of san-
ity comes to a crashing halt.
The Capital One Bowl generally
reserved for the loser of the SEC title
game passed up LSU for Auburn.
That's understandable, but don't for-
get LSU and Auburn both lost a single
regular season conference game, and
Auburn's one loss came to LSU.
OK, so LSU will have to settle for
the Outback Bowl, right? Well here's
what Outback CEO Jim McVay re-
portedly said to LSU coach.Les Miles
in an e-mail: "Sorry Les, there's too
much Florida pageantry in Tampa. I
know the Gators lost two more regular
season SEC games than your team, in-
cluding a loss in your house, but I real-
ly want my son to wear his new Gators
jacket I'm giving him .for Christmas at
the Outback Bowl. And by the way,
we're trying to sell seats."
So the Tigers are knocked out of a
January bowl, heading to the Peach
Bowl in a sexy matchup with Miami.
And it turns out the 01' Ball Coach
lost to the Gators after all. South
Carolina, the SEC East's No. 2 team
that spanked UF just weeks ago, heads
to the Independence Bowl to face some
team in a game nobody cares about.
I'm not saying the Gators can't hang
with most teams in the nation, but try
to find another sport that would toss
the No. 22 in the nation (Florida State)
in one of the top four bowls, the No.
6 team (Oregon) in the Holiday Bwl
and the Gators ahead of LSU in the
It's not the Gators' fault they play
under such a terrible system. In fact
it only helps them. Why do you think
recruits want to come to a school like
UF? You think a three-loss Vanderbilt
team would edge out a two-loss LSU
team for a January bowl bid?
College football officials call it a
selection process. I call it a pile of kan-

Hairston sank all three shots,

"I think that down the stretch in
the second half, conditioning was
going to be important," Peck said.
"We picked up our pressure de-
fensively in the full-court, caused
some turnovers ... What we had
to [do] down the stretch is really
execute our offense."
While UF led nearly the entire
game, Temple came back midway
through the second half to jump
But mistakes including turn-
overs the Owls finished with 26

The technical came when
Brittany Davis was inbounding
the ball for UF with 1:10 left in
the game. Temple center Lady

Davis passed it

hit another to extend the lead from
three to six.
"This team continues to show
me good things and maturity with
their composure, even when the
games get tight," said Peck, who

points down to defeat Charlotte on
Following Davis' big game
against Charlotte on Wednesday,
fellow senior forward Dalila Eshe
stepped up to lead the Gators.
Eshe scored a team-high 20
points, grabbed eight rebounds
and picked up four steals in 39
"As the game got close, the time
got shorter, Dalila did a good job of
going down, posting up and want-
ing the ball and then took charge
and finished," Peck said.
Defensively, Eshe and the
Gators held Temple star Candice
Dupree, the reigning Atlantic 10
Player of the Year, to just eight
Dupree also committed a game-
"If they moved her to the low
post, what we wanted to do is for
her to always have two people on
her so that she had to be a passer,"
