Students petition Levin
E SOME ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THE
LAW SCHOOL'S LACK OF DIVERSITY.
S..By JOHN W. COX
Tim Hussin. Alligator STaH
Third-year law student Natasha Chisolm signs a petition to in-
crease diversity at the Levin College of Law on Wednesday.
Seventeen of the 92 incoming Fall students
to the UF Levin College of Law are not white.
Ten of the college's 72 faculty are not white.
Felix Felicier, a third-year UF law student,
said it's not enough.
"Its tough when you come in as a first-year
law student and look in your classes and only
see four or five students who look like you,"
said Felicier, who is Puerto Rican.
The law school's 18.5 percent minority en-
rollment this Fall places it near the bottom of
the Association of American Universities' list
of top schools this semester when ranked by
minority enrollment, he said.
About 100 students and faculty signed a pe-
tition at the UF law school today to encourage
administrators to face its lack of diversity.
Felicier and several other members of the
American Constitution Society's local chapter
organized the petition, which will continue
until the administration takes notice, said third-
year law student Vatrice Perrin.
The minority statistics this Fall are mislead-
ing, said Associate Dean Patrick Shannon.
For the first time, the law school accepted
one pool of student applications simultane-
ously for both the Summer and Fall semesters,
Shannon said. A total of 298 students enrolled
in the entire group: 206 in the Summer and 92
in the Fall.
Of the 298 total, 22.8 percent were minori-
ties, Shannon said.
But even at this percentage, UF has a long
way to go, Perrin said.
"This law school, since I came, has said year
after year that they want to be a Top 10 public
law school," Felicier said. "We're tired of being

CLO must be
fixed to stay
By DAVID COHEN
Elizabeth "Izzy" McAlister went to UF officials ask-
ing for lower rent.
She got her wish but only until March 17.
If the Collegiate Living Organization cannot come up
with $500,000 to repair its co-op facility, which does not
meet UF's strict standards, the university will be forced
to sell the land to the highest bidder.
And McAlister, along with about 70 other residents,
will be forced to find a new home.
But because UF holds a trust

Administration cannot profit from the public
sale of the land all money
for the valuable property will go to help low-income
students for whom the trust was originally intended.
That, however, is of little comfort to McAlister, who
was approved to move into the CLO on Dec. 9 by UF.
officials because she couldn't afford to live in Sledd Hall
McAlister said the CLO's rent was cheaper by $1,000
But a UF investigation, which concluded a month
earlier, detailed repairs needed to get the 33-year-old
facility up to university standards.
"I feel hurt, deceived, insulted," McAlister said. "It's
upsetting that they care so little about each individual
student. It's really very upsetting to my family. They
finally thought there was a sense of relief."
"They're not being considerate to less fortunate
students," she said of UF officials, with whom the trust
deed dates back to 1947. "For some people this is the
only option they have."

Student's purse stolen while shopping at UF bookstore
UPD believe theft committed by team of four
By STEPHANIE RODRIGUEZ
Police are searching for a team
of four people who stole a stu-
dent's purse at the UF Bookstore.
A woman was caught on a
security video Dec. 16 grabbing
a UF student's purse while three
accomplices roamed the book-
store as lookouts, according to
a University Police Department
"It is obvious that they were
working together from looking at
the video," said UPD spokesman
The UF student set her purse
down because she was in a
rush to get to her graduation
ceremony for the College of
Engineering, said Dave Moore,
human resource manager at the

The woman who grabbed the
purse took out the contents and
left the purse behind, according
to the release.
Moore said it is unusual for
thefts to occur in the bookstore.
"The most- common thing
that happens is that people take
laptops from the library," Moore
said. "Students need to be more
careful where they leave things."

Student Organization Fair
ends today at Reitz Union
The annual Student
Organization Fair continues today
from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the Reitz
Union Colonnade with more than
70 organizations planning to at-
The fair kicked off Wednesday,
and organizers say this year is
unique because no organization
can be on display for both days.
"Because of the large number of
organizations who want to partici-
pate, we can only have organiza-
tions sign up for one day," said fair
Chairman Yordanos Eyoel.
IDEAL, a group of official am-
bassadors of the Office of Student
Involvement, sponsors the fair and
runs all of the necessary opera-
tions, such as group registration,
setup and organization.
The purpose of the Student
Organization Fair is to bring all
student organizations together
to give students an easier way to
leam about the groups on campus.
"It is important to get involved
because you need to take respon-
sibility for something in your life,
whether it's your faith or studies,
but something you're passion-
ate about," said Bobby Angel, a
member of the Catholic Student
There are more than 700 organi-
zations on campus, so it is easy to
find one that suits every passion.

Incomplete grade resulted in Cosimi's ineligibility
By LYNDSEY LEWIS
UF officials say they cannot re-
veal why Student Body Treasurer
Lindsay Cosimi, who received an
incomplete grade last Spring, was
not determined ineligible to hold
office at an earlier date.
Cosimi said she first received a
letter informing her of her ineligi-
bility toward the end of Fall, about
halfway through her year-long term
Although the Dean of Students
Office forced her resignation in
December, Student Senate re-
turned Cosimi to her former posi-
tion through a unanimous vote at
Tuesday night's Senate meeting. She
had nominated herself, along with
two other can-
didates, to take

"The focus of
this, in my opinion, is that I'm a very

to the date when she resigned from

semester regarding student leader
eligibility Zdziarski said. "Most
cases are resolved in less than 30
Cosimi said that although her
incomplete grade initially did not
affect her grade point average, it
automatically changed to a failing
grade of E by the time Fall semester
However, she said she was
unaware of this change when she
began classes in the Fall.
"Immediately upon receiving
my grades (in Spring), I was work-
ing on rectifying the situation," she
said. "(By Fall) I had kind of put
everything so far behind me and
was focusing on my job and my

state that officials must maintain

tion in Spring 2005, meaning the

By the time she learned she
would have to resign, the deadline
to appeal the decision had already
passed, but Cosimi said she was
doing her best to establish her eligi-
bility to hold office.
"They were looking for docu-
mentation upon documentation,
and I did everything in my power
to provide that for them," she said.
Cosimi was eventually allowed
to file an appeal past deadline, a de-
cision which Zdziarski and Student
Government adviser Chris Cupoli
said they could not comment on.
Now that she is set to complete
the remainder of her term, Cosimi
said she is looking forward to con-
tinuing her work as Student Body

Ex-ambassador argues national security is a joint effort

By LINDSEY FRANCO
Alligator Contributing Writer
Former U.S. Ambassador Nancy
Soderberg called on America to
join forces with other countries to
help improve U.S. national secu-
rity in a speech at the Reitz Union
"The U.S. is less secure today
than it should be because it's blind-
ed by the superpower myth," she
said to a crowd of 400 listeners.
Soderberg discussed what she
called the "dangerous fallacy"
of the myth in her speech titled
"The Superpower Myth The Use
and Misuse of American Might,"
which followed two speeches she
presented earlier in the day titled,
"Preventing Conflict in Africa" and
"Can the U.N. Be Reformed?"
She described the superpower
myth as a misconception Americans
hold about the United States having
more economic, cultural and mili-
tary power than other countries. She
argued that blindly believing this
has led to a weak national security
"The superpower myth has led
us to single-handedly do it all," she
said. "There is no way the U.S. can,

have since returned.
Although things have been some-

has always had problems with mi-

to change, Jacobs said.
"I think it's sort of a pipe dream
that an institution of this size and
history is going to turn it around,"
The problem is not exclusive
to the law college or UF, but the
university's position as the flagship
school in the state makes it more of a
problem, she said.
Perrin said she thinks many quali-:

not to attend the law college because
of its lack of diversity.

that claims in Frey's book were

W e here at the Alligator have been having a tough

been announced earlier that day. There was no time for
anyone to start investigating the other nominees.
To most people, Cosimi was the only known contend-
But we think the vote should have been more than just
a rubber stamp.
Students and senators should have had more time to
thoroughly evaluate each candidate.

We eventually found out that the two other candidates
were actually Cosimi's underlings, Assistant Treasurers
Freya Birdie and Gabrielle Leon.
They were running against their boss.
Talk about a conflict of interest.
Leon withdrew her nomination before the meeting.
That meant Cosimi really only brought two potential
names to the meeting, rather than.the required three.
And the fact that it was a unanimous selection just
brings up more questions. There are many parties in
Student Senate, all with different agendas.
So where was the opposition?
Cosimi originally resigned amid speculation that
she was having a great deal of personal trouble. Senate
President John Boyles speculated that it must have been
"something dramatic, something rough."
But her dilemma was really just academic. She re-

that it was an in-house matter for SG. Cupoli tried to push

But consider what these young men were concerned
about. They sought to restrict the admission of women
and minorities to what was once an all-white, all-male
university. "In Defense of Elitism," an essay published
in CAP's official magazine, Prospect, is a fair summary
of the group's politics.
CAP didn't just oppose affirmative action. They sup-
ported reinstating a rule that had limited the number
of women in each freshman class to 300 out of about
They also had quite a mean streak. A 1984 Prospect
article on AIDS joked, "Scientists must find humans,
or rather, homosexuals, to submit themselves to ex-
perimental treatment. Perhaps Princeton's Gay Alliance
may want to hold an election." Another article, on sexu-
al harassment, included photos of a woman in a bikini.
It goes without saying that CAP's politics should
trouble Republicans and Democrats alike. But who can
say whether Alito's views have changed since the '70s,
when he became a Concerned Alumnus?
So what do we make of this miniature scandal? At
best, Alito has been caught in an obvious lie. At worst,
he harbors beliefs that would make Pat Buchanan
White House officials insist that a nominees' personal
views should have no bearing on their jurisprudence.
But it's hard not to question some of Alito's deci-
sions in light of what we know about his politics. For
example, he voted in 1991 to uphold a Pennsylvania
law requiring women to notify their husbands before
getting an abortion.
The Supreme Court overturned the ruling the next
year. In her opinion,, Sandra Day O'Connor wrote, "A
state may not give to a man the kind of dominion over
his wife that parents exercise over their children."
Alito may be 30 years removed from the Cbncerned
Alumni of Princeton, but on the ideological scale, he's
right next door.

A duty as Student Body president to

textbook adoption is an issue that affects every

unfounded. I have had countless productive

I will not question the integrity of UF's
SG officials, because their integrity went out

how the SG advisers allowed something

in how this whirlwind of events transpired

As most successful couples would agree,
communication is an essential element in the

hours away from your honey, talking on the
phone is really the closest you'll get to con-
necting. And now that cell phones have ren-

and reception, there's no reason why your
communication skills can't be put to the test.

"Glory Road" is based
on the true story of the Texas
Western basketball team, which

Reserves step up
BASKETBALL, from page 20
Walter Hodge lead the group with a career-high
18 points, including shooting 5 of 7 from behind the
David Huertas, Garrett Tyler and Jack Berry also
had career highs with 15, 7 and 5 points respective-
ly, including a dunk from Tyler that his teammates
have anticipated all season.
"Garrett can jump higher than Corey [Brewer],,
although Corey will tell you that's a lie," Adrian
Moss said. "I'm being serious, you can go roll a ball
out and tell Garrett to do anything. He can get you
anything you want from a dunking standpoint."
Tyler said after the game that the two tied in a
preseason vertical jump test, making out around 42
inches. And Donovan feels like the tale of Tyler's
dunk will only grow with time.
"Probably when he gets to be 45 or 50, it will
probably elevate to over Kentucky, overtime, put
us up by one; the story will certainly escalate, I'm
sure," he said.
ABRAMSON, from page 20
heard negotiations with the Harlem
Globetrotters' archenemy Washington
Generals failed after the Generals re-
fused to go down without swinging.
So here's where Donovan's sched-
uling (or lack thereof) could bite him
in the arse. What if the Gators end up
losing three or four games? Those stuffy
committee folks might suddenly look at
UF's No. 132 national strength of sched-
ule and erase their No. seed and pencil
ina 4 or5.
But forget the seeding for just a mo-
ment. The Gators are on the brink of be-
coming a true basketball powerhouse,
something that has never existed in the
state of Florida.
There are only two reasons UF
hasn't jumped into the elite class that,
in this decade, includes Duke, UConn,
Michigan State, North Carolina and
Kansas (Illinois is also on the bubble):
those terrible postseason exits which in-
dude five straight seasons with a first or
second round NCAA Tournament loss
(a trend that should end this year), and
that schedule that gives me a greater
chuckle than an episode of Sanford and
I'm always hearing complaints from
Gators fans that Duke and Kentucky get
more TV air time than Kate Moss after
an all-night binge, but can you blame
ESPN for not wanting to air those great
rivalry games between UF and Morgan
And come conference season, it's
not like the SEC makes for thrilling TV
anyway. Yet, a mediocre Kentucky team
has owned the airways because of its
non-conference matchups against Iowa,
West Virginia, North Carolina, Indiana,
Louisville and Kansas. Ditto for Duke,
which faced Texas and Indiana before
the grueling ACC season.
Miami (who the Gators should play
every season) and Providence, UF's
toughest non-conference games outside
of the Coaches vs. Cancer tournament,
hardly compare. With a home advan-
tage second to none in college basket-
ball, the Gators' fans deserve to see at
least one national powerhouse each
December in Gainesville.
How about an annual matchup
with an ACC team other than FSU?
It makes sense geographically
How about a home-and-home with
UCLA? It would give the Gators West
Coast exposure. How about a game
against anyone other than Savannah

-alk-on forward Garrett Tyler jumps past Savannah State forward Chris

* FRESHMAN POINT GUARD WALTER HODGE
LED UF'S BUSY BENCH, SCORING 18 POINTS.
By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
There wasn't much to be decided at the O'Connell
The Gators entered the game ranked No. 2 in the nation,
riding a 17-game home winning streak dating back to last
season. Savannah State came into Gainesville with no wins
against Division I opposition and without a player taller
than 6-foot-7 on its roster.
And after Wednesday's non-conference finale, the Gators
are now 18-0, the Tigers are still winless against Division I
competition, and they still don't have a player taller than 6-
foot-7, as evidenced by the Gators' 12 blocks in their 113-62
"You either get better or worse, and I feel like we got
better as a team," Al Horford said: "I think we're starting
to push the ball a little more in transition, which we haven't
been doing the last few games, and that's just good for our
When the starters were iin te game, however, their only
competition was how many alley-oops and dunks they
could accumulate, with the crowd showing obvious disap-
pointment any time a fast break didn't end with a flush.
The Tigers were able to keep the game relatively cose
in the early going, edging as close as 16-6 before UF went
on a 41-17 run during the remainder of the half, including
one stretch during which the Gators scored 21 consecutive
Joakim Noah lead the Gators with 21 points, shooting

Gators add Jones to top-ranked class

Consider it payback for the 31-3 thrashing

In any case, don't expect Mike Shula to be
rooting Urban Meyer on in his pursuit of the
nation's No. 1 recruiting class.
Meyer and his staff have already snatched
.several recruits from the grasp of the Alabama
coach, including quarterback Tim Tebow and
linebacker Brandon Spikes.
Wednesday, linebacker AJ. Jones became
the latest to shun the Crimson Tide in favor of
the Gators, verbally committing to UF on Fox
Sports Net's Countdown to Signing Day.
"Florida has a great program and they
are headed in the right direction. They have
the No. 1 recruiting class, and it's going to
be a great place to be in a couple of years,"
Jones told the Tampa Tribune on Wednesday.
"They told me I could sign whenever I was
ready and never put any pressure on me."
At 6-foot-2,190 pounds,
Jones is considered under-
sized for a linebacker, but
makes up for it with out-
"He is just an excep-
tional player," said Harry
Hubbard, who coached
Jones at Tampa Middleton
Jones High. "I know he is a little
undersized, but once kids go off to college,
with the regimen of resting and eating, there
is no problem for him to pick up weight."
Jones' commitment came at a crucial time
for the Gators, whose recruiting class suffered
a blow after losing one of the nation's best
linebackers in Lany Grant.
Grant, a junior college transfer, failed to
qualify academically after not passing a math

"I think the Florida Gators' coaching staff
and Coach Meyer have done an excellent job
of recruiting, and they have made [Jones] feel
like a big part of their program," Hubbard
said. "I know if they were recruiting me, I
would say yes. And not just because it is the

to a game against the Tigers. And
we're not talking the LSU Tigers,
Auburn Tigers, Memphis Tigers or

We're talking the glorious
Savannah State Tigers, who have
averaged a grand spanking total of
0.5 wins the last two seasons. Give
the Tigers credit; I wasn't sure if
they'd hit double figures, let alone
the half-century mark.
But as the Gators fight their way

Donovan's initial intention) makes

(unlikely as it is) or only lose a game

Donovan might as well have sched-
