UF President Bernie Machen chats with Herb Peyton, a major donor to UF, after a speech acknowl-
edging UF's financial supporters during the President's Council Regional Recognition Banquet.
By JUSTIN RICHARDS
JACKSONVILLE UF honored some of its biggest
donors, including those who have given more than $5
million, at a ritzy hotel reception in this riverfront city
The event began in a reception hall in the Hyatt
Regency Jacksonville Riverfront hotel on the St. John's
River. Servers wove between dusters of cocktail-
toting dignitaries, carrying trays of hors d'oeuvres
- Parmesan bruschetta with mango salsa, cucum-
bers topped with baked shrimp and seasoned cream
"Come on, you got to have more than just one," the
shrimp server urged.
There were spindly chandeliers, a pianist plinking,
huge arched windows overlooking the river lights
and two open bars.
To signal dinner, a server named Millie walked
through the hall playing a small xylophone.
The President's Council Regional Recognition
Banquet had two purposes: to thank and honor those
who have donated to UF and to encourage future
The President's Council is a group the university
considers likely to make large investments.
To be invited to the council, guests had to donate at
least $2,000 annually or $50,000 overall.
Society donors, UF's designation for those who
gave $100,000 or more, and laureate donors, who gave
$5 million or more, were honored Thursday night.
Though not all attended, there were more than 100
society donors either individuals or organizations

Deputies not told
of Cosimi's plans
By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Student Body Treasurer Lindsay Cosimi, who briefly resigned
from her position last week, did not inform any of her 14 assistant
treasurers that she had been forced to step down from her post.
Cosimi justified her actions Thursday.
"I didn't have the time in dealing with my issues to get to them,"
she said. "My personal decision was not to share this information
with anyone beyond my closest family and closest friends."
As treasurer, Cosimi controls more than $11 million of student
money. After nominating herself and two other candidates to take
over the treasurer position, Student Senate voted her back to her
post Tuesday night.
Cosimi said she felt that her assistants did not need to know of
her resignation before anyone else.
Her assistants are responsible for maintaining relations be-
tween student organizations and the Student Government Finance
But current and former SG officials question the role of the 14
deputies and their relevance in the SG bureaucracy.
Assistant Treasurer Tung Ho said he felt Cosimi handled her

Student members no-shows
In an effort to garner
student involvement on its
Sustainability Committee, the
Faculty Senate voted over-
whelmingly Thursday to have
student members selected by
Student Government instead of
Chris Snodgrass, chairman
of the Constitution Committee
of the Faculty Senate, said many
committees have a "big prob-
lem" with student members
showing up to meetings.
He said he hopes that giving
SG the power to select students
instead of electing them will
yield more motivated students
on Faculty Senate committees.
Because of this change, Student
Affairs may suggest candidates.
"What the Faculty Senate
really wants is people. who are
committed and to grant Student
Government the flexibility to find
those people,"Snodgrass said.

And 18-year-old Ryan Sweeting
could have left the practice match
in Bradenton, Fla., with more than
just a few extra bucks.
He could have joined her in pro-
fessional tennis, but now he dons
the orange and blue.

she was so gopd looking and not
because of how good she was," said
the Bahamas-bor Sweeting.

the outcome, but I was happy with
UF men's tennis coach Andy
Jackson said UF is a natural fit for
Sweeting, who was once ranked
the No. 4 junior in the world by the
International Tennis Federation.
"I sold it to him," Jackson said.
"But I didn't sell him something I
didn't believe in. It's a mistake at 18
to turn pro. He was smart in being
able to slow down."
Sweeting said high-ranked play-
ers don't often choose books over
the potential for cash.
"It just seemed like the smartest
thing to do," he said. "Obviously, I
could have not come here. I think
that would be rushing it. I'm a re-
ally skinny, slim guy."
He hopes Jackson can get him
ready to face the pro game.
"He's going to help the Gators
a lot, but, more importantly, I
think the Gators are going to help
him a lot," Jackson said of making
Sweeting quicker and stronger.
"Do I feel that he is going to be a
-pro tennis player? Absolutely. In a
couple of years, he can be Top 100
in the world. Regardless of what
happens to his tennis, he's going to
be an educated man. It was a win-
win for him."
And Sweeting already has a
reputation for winning the 2005
U.S. Open junior tournament last
September, to be exact.
"That's like the highlight of
the junior career," Sweeting said.
"That's the reward. There's nothing
like it. All the hard work paid off,
UF's men's program is ranked
No. 2 in the Fila Collegiate Tennis
Rankings preseason poll and is a
fairly established member of the
Top 5 programs in the country.
"I think it gives us more talent,"
Jackson said of Sweeting. "It's a
step forward, but it doesn't blow
us out of the water. This is the first
one, but I don't think it will be the

the mix, UF's program is going to

semester of eligibility. "For me,

on and off the field is impressive.
"I haven't played with too many
kids his age," Brandi said. "He's
also extremely mature for his age.
It's going to be fun. I just basically
want to have no regrets. I'll miss
it, but I've played enough. I'm

Collegiate tennis shows who's
tough and who's not, Brandi said.
"The team atmosphere enhances
the quality of tennis," he said. "It
really shows who can compete un-
der pressure. If you lose in a team
match, you are letting down six,
eight, 10 other players. It separates
the best from everyone else."
Sweeting said the unity on .the
Gators squad was what made him
want to be a part of it.

Rabbi Jonathan Siger listens during "Torah on Tap," a
meeting for students to enjoy conversation and a beer.
Over pizza, rabbi meets students
By JACQUELINE DAVISON
Campus Rabbi Jonathan Siger
gulps a Pabst Blue Ribbon beer while
Foreigner's "Hot Blooded" blasts in
"What we as Jews think is moral
isn't the same for other religions," he
says. "Ethics are more universal."
Not exactly a typical setting for
the discussion of Jewish philosophy.
Siger hosted "Torah on Tap" at
the Mellow Mushroom on Thursday
night through the Hillel Foundation.
Students are invited to meet with the
rabbi the third Thursday of every
month for free beer and a huge help-
ing of the Torah.
"Certainly my goal is to provide
an opportunity for Jewish students
to come and meet the rabbi; explore
what it is to be Jewish in a way that's
non-threatening," he said.
A half-dozen students sat around
a white wheat pizza (pepperoni isn't
kosher) discussing topics varying
from Steven Spielberg's "Munich" to
the students' lives.
Margot Stem, a UF graduate stu-
dent, teaches at Temple Shir Shalom
She asked the rabbi about possible
lessons for a seventh-grade class she
"You meet people that you
have something in common
with, even if the only thing you
have in common is that you
like to drink free beer that a
rabbi buys you."
"If this is what I'm going to be do-

to be miserable," Stem said of debat-
ing Jewish philosophy. "I mean, I'm
happy being miserable."
"That's being a Jew," Siger re-
Though the program is sponsored
through the Hillel, all faiths are in-
vited to participate.
"You meet people that you have
something in commori with, even if
the only thing you have in common
is that you like to drink free beer that
a rabbi buys you," Siger said.
Although the main idea of Torah
on Tap is to explore Judaism, Siger
also wants to demonstrate respon-
sible social drinking to students.
"I think one of the big concerns
of the ministry is about responsible
consumption of alcohol," Siger said.
"Show people that you can enjoy al-
cohol; enjoy socializing as an adult."
Since Siger hosts the event for
students of legal drinking age, which
previously had left out Allyson Falor,
a UF junior, until she turned 21 last

Siger said Gainesville has the
second-largest Jewish student popu-
lation outside of Israel with about
7,000 members of the faith.
"If people don't like organized re-
ligion, they should hang out with the
Jews," Siger said.
"We're the most disorganized
people I've ever met."

UF charms donors at reception
DONORS, from page 1
Bruce Smathers, son of UF libraries'
namesake and deceased U.S. Sen. George
Smathers, said the university is in the
so-called quiet phase following a recent
outpouring of financial support.
The lead givers give during a quiet
-phase, said Bruce's wife, Susan Smathers.
Other donors follow.
The quiet phase refers to the period
before UF officials make an announce-
ment of the fundraising campaign.
Bruce Smathers, a UF donor who has
served in the Florida Senate and now
practices law in Jacksonville, said private
donations are especially important at UF
because of poor state funding.
"If you just rely on state dollars, we'd
rather be strangled," he said.
Bruce Smathers said people give for
both altruistic and personal reasons.
Some want to give back; many also
want to increase the value of their degrees
and the prestige of their alma mater.
"People like to be associated with suc-
cess and with excellence," he said.
Allen Lastinger, a laureate donor, has
given to several colleges at UF. He is a
former president of Barnett Bank.
"We couldn't think of a better way to
invest in the future than to invest in the
programs we have seen in the University
of Florida," he said. "If you can't leave
something behind after you're gone, why
were you here?"
On stage, after a dinner of steak and

He also told of Shands at UF's new
cancer-killing proton beam, to be pow-
ered up this summer.
Machen said state funding can only
provide a baseline.
"The truly great support that we'll get
will be from our alumni and friends,"
Some of the contributions made were
the end results of the work of UF's Office
for Development and Alumni Affairs.
Each college has between one and
three development officers who target
potential donors for their schools.
The university has a sophis-
ticated database to track alumni.
Development officers contact those
alumni from their respective colleges
who have become exceptionally wealthy.
Development officers call these alumni

Michael Wohl said.
Commissioner Ed Braddy said
he would like to raise fines and put

Benefits need pledge
By STEPHANIE GARRY
Alligator Staff Writer
In order to receive health benefits
-for their partners, some UF employ-
ees have to sign a document pledg-
ing they are in a sexual relationship.
Created to cover partners of gay
and lesbian employees, the pro-
gram requires an affidavit declaring
they "have been in a non-platonic
relationship for the preceding 12
months," in addition to 14 other
"There's something about
asking people about their
Some at Thursday's Faculty
Senate meeting thought this was an
unnecessary invasion of privacy.
"I thought it was kind of odd,"
Faculty Sen. Marylou Behnke said.
"How will they enforce it?"
The issue arose after Kyle
Cavanaugh, UF's vice president
for human resources, updated the
Senate on the program enrollment.
In December, the UF Board of
Trustees extended health insurance
to gay and lesbian partners of UF
employees. The enrollment period
lasts from Jan. 9 to Jan. 31. The ben-
efits go into effect Feb. 1.
Behnke asked' Cavanaugh if he
would police this regulation. He
responded, "Not personally."
"There's something about asking
people about their sexual life," said
Behnke, who represents the depart-
ment of pediatrics.
More than 100 employees have
attended information sessions about
thebenefits, Cavanaugh said. About
five to 10 employees have signed up
for partner benefits so far.
"We've been pleasantly surprised
by the level of interest," Cavanaugh
Defining the relationship as non-
platonic helps human resources.
weed out employees who might be
seeking coverage for a roommate
or family member, Cavanaugh
said. The affidavit, including the
non-platonic clause, is standard for
companies that offer benefits for the
partners of their gay and lesbian
Shands HealthCare has a similar
clause in their affidavit for partner
Other employees have ques-
tioned the non-platonic relationship
requirement as well, Cavanaugh
said. Human Resources will recon-
sider the language, but Cavanaugh
said he doubted it would be changed
before the end of the month.

Radhika Gaur, 20, was driving on Interstate
10, about 20 miles northeast of Lake City, when
she lost control and was thrown from the car, ac-

Witnesses said Gaur's car suddenly spun
into another lane and onto the shoulder. The car
then ricocheted off a large tree into several oth-.
ers and caught fire, according to the report.
Paramedics pronounced Gaur dead 30 min-
utes after the accident, according to the report.
Gaur was active in several groups on cam-
pus, including the Women's Chorale, UF's

6, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, JANUARY 20, 2006
It's been a wild and crazy week at the Alligator. Between cov-
ering all the protesting outside, the CLO residents getting
hassled and a certain SG official un-resigning, we've had
barely enough time to eat and sleep.
But now it's the end of the week and we couldn't be happier.
Now we just have to sit back, relax and pick this week's winners
and losers in a game we like to call...
Darts and Laurels
We begin by bestowing a thanks-for-the-quote-of-the-week
LAUREL to UF student Elana Levin.
Last Saturday, Levin was standing on a sidewalk downtown,
eating some dinner.
According to the arrest report, when officer James Hinson
asked her to move, she replied: "[Expletive] you. I'm eating my
She then proceeded to slap a police horse in the face.
We're not sure about her tactics, but it's about time some-
body taught those equine invaders a lesson.
How many times have we opened our front door only to
find a steaming hot pile of horse muck on our doorstep?
We've had just about enough of that.
On the topic of horse muck, we turn our attention to
Tuesday's Student Senate meeting. Cosimi's announcement
pretty much drowned out everything else going on that eve-
ning. But to catch you up, we'll toss an if-it's-not-your-money-
then-shut-up-about-it DART to UF student Christine Miller.
Miller, a resident adviser in Mallory Hall, spoke out against
UF's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Affairs depart-
ment. She claimed that because the office supported homosexu-
ality, her tax dollars shouldn't be going to support it.
Unfortunately, the office isn't funded by the state at all, but
by private donations to the university.
Maybe she didn't get the memo.
We continue by throwing a what-in-the-hell-were-you-
thinking DART to Farris Hassan, a 16-year-old Florida high
Last December, instead of staying home for the holidays,
Hassan made an unannounced, unaccompanied trip to
Although he knows no Arabic, Hassan expected to blend
in with the Iraqi population because of his Middle Eastern
When he stumbled into the Associated Press office in
Baghdad, he admitted he hadn't even told his parents about
The AP notified the U.S. Embassy in Iraq, and Hassan was
escorted home by the 101st Airborne Division.
He put himself in danger and wasted U.S. war resources.
Our military probably has better things to do than rein in a
But, then again, we like his style. Anybody willing to put his
life on the line to find out what's really going on in Iraq deserves
So we bestow a maybe-it-was-reckless-but-at-least-you'll-
have-a-career-in-journalism LAUREL to Hassan.
After he gave the country headlines like "Farris Hassan's
month off," we couldn't stay mad for long.
Finally, we deliver an it's-about-time-that-we-had-the-right-
to-die-with-dignity LAUREL to the U.S. Supreme Court. 'This
week, the court ruled 6-3 to support an Oregon law that allowed
physicians to help patients end their lives.
We can't understand why the government would ever think
it had the moral authority to force citizens to continue living
when they no longer desire to.
When people want to end their lives, we're pretty sure
they'll find some way to do it.
And physician-assisted suicide sure beats the alternatives.

Murders should have been prevented
he murder of Amber Peck and John Parker earlier
this month was not only an incredible tragedy, but
also an example of a breakdown in the justice sys-
The breakdown isn't related to the fact that the weapon
used in this murder was an assault rifle; the crime would
have happened even if guns were outlawed.
The breakdown was that these murders were allowed
to occur at all.
Asking that the legal system prevent all murders is
both unreasonable and impossible.
However, preventing someone with such a violent past
from committing further crime is not.
This is the very reason our nation has exorbitantly
expensive prisons. We detain criminals and remove them
from society so they may not continue to harm others.
Usually, this system works reasonably well.
Increasing the severity and frequency of crimes leads to
Yet Leo Boatman, an individual who has been in trouble
with the law since he was 11, had no such punishment.
Having committed arson, assault and a variety of other
violent and malicious crimes, he should've been marked
as a bad-egg long ago.
Instead, because he was under the age of 18, he was
sentenced lightly, with nothing but slaps on the wrist.
Being a minor allowed him to continue committing crimes
without definitive punishment from the courts.
He had only been out of juvenile detention for four and
a half months when he killed Peck and Parker. It is as if the
legal system was merely waiting for the other shoe to drop
once Boatman was an adult.
Just like turning 21 magically entitles you to constime
alcohol legally, being under the age
of 18 allows many individuals to
get away with crimes. Too light a
punishment won't prevent future
From a very basic standpoint, lighter sentences for
juveniles make sense. While having a sense of right and
wrong, many juveniles don't yet respect the law. Children
lack a true grasp of the consequences of their actions.
Lighter sentencing allows many juveniles a second
chance to get back on their feet. Pointless crimes like shop-
lifting and drug possession shouldn't ruin an individual's
But lesser sentences begin to lose their appropriate-
ness when applied to violent crime. Crimes like the ones
Boatman committed show a serious lack of compassion
and respect for the rights of others.
Individuals like Boatman should be flagged as crimi-
nally violent individuals at the first sign of such behavior.
It is with juvenile criminals like these that the sys-
tem needs some refining. If the system had prescribed a
harsher punishment for Boatman earlier on in his criminal
career, then perhaps the murder of two innocent people
could have been averted.
Of course, it would be best if the legal system was
geared toward the true rehabilitation of criminals.
But as the system operates currently, a man like
Boatman should have been in jail on Jan. 3.
Through either more intuitive juvenile sentencing or
scalable sentencing based on age, we must address the
growing trend toward violent juvenile crime.

Boyles implicated in Cosimi scandal

political machinations? The Gator Party's

the rules in the same high regard as their cam-
But let's ignore the Gator Party's betrayal
and look at the main enabler and likely estab-
lishment candidate for President.

At best his silence means he is an enabler

Alito's group membership irrelevant
I would like to thank both the editors of
the Alligator and Jake Ramsey for restating
the Democratic talking points concerning
Sam Alito in yesterday's guest column titled
"Alito crippled by dubious affiliation." Alito's
30-year association with the mostly irrelevant
organization seems to speak louder than a
career of outstanding judicial performance to
some, not everyone.
In addition, as if his spotless integrity eval-
uation didn't speak loud enough, his name
fails to appear in any of the organization's
literature or bulletins.
It is interesting to note that another promi-
nent public figure, Ted Kennedy, seems to have
been much more active in an equally bigoted
organization at his alma mater, Harvard..
It seems his organization, nicknamed the
Owls, was expelled from Harvard in the 1980s -
under the auspices of anti-discrimination
Kennedy has donated money to the Owl
Club and, until recently, continued to be an
While Kennedy is not the official being con-
firmed, it seems this detail has failed to surface
with any meaning in the mainstream media.
Finally, assessing the career of a judicial
candidate is a far more comprehensive process
than offering one anecdotal ruling removed
from its context.
It seems the only thing dubious in this case
is Alito's connection with the CAP.
Cosimi still best candidate for position
The Alligator is beginning their tirade to
call for Lindsay Cosimi's resignation.
Cosimi let her grades slip as she got more
involved with her service and extracurricu-
She hasn't fouled up the budget or ac-
cepted anything from Jack Abramoff, as far
as I can tell.
The Alligator's points are on mark in that
Cosimi is probably just as guilty of playing
politics as they are.
But in the end, these terms last a year and
she isn't getting paid anything dose to what I
did waiting tables at Perkins.
My assumption is that the Alligator sees
the big boys at The Washington Post pinpoint-
ing government corruption and underhand-
edness asking for resignations and they
want to do it too.
The best interest of students would be to
leave in office the person that already has the
necessary experience and a mandate with as
little bureaucracy and red tape as possible.
It's sad that the Alligator, only months ago,
questioned black and white policy in their ve-
hement defense of the treasurer they endorsed
in the last election, yet immediately question
the current treasurer in a similar predicament.

Professor remembered for helping college grow
* BIOCHEMIST MELVIN FRIED DIED
MONDAY AFTER 37 YEARS AT UF.
By MARIA LAVERGHETTA
Alligator Contributing Writer
He started college in 1940 at 16.
He received his Yale doctorate in 1952
He joined the original faculty of the UF
College of Medicine in 1956.
But Melvin Fried died Monday, known
to friends as simply a normal guy.
"He was very loyal to Gainesville and
the College of Medicine a great Gator,"
said Tom Harris, associate dean in the
College of Medicine.
Fried, a biochemistry professor at UF
for 37 years, died Monday after a life of
teaching, mentoring and contributing to
the Gainesville community.
"When you love your profession, I think
you work very hard to make it a viable
institution," said Charles Allen, professor
emeritus of biochemistry and molecular
biology. "If he hadn't made the effort, the
department may have not been able to
grow as fast as it had."
Many credit Fried with the growth and
success of the biochemistry department at
UF, but that was only one of his passions.
"He loved to scuba dive," said Daniel
Purich, professor of biochemistry and mo-
lecular biology. "He had many interests. He
was greatly interested in medical student
education, wildlife and city planning."
Purich, who knew Fried for 22 years,
appreciated Fried's sense of humor, which
he said "could knock you over," and his
"remarkable" background as a biochemist.
Prior to his career at UF, Fried worked un-
der three Nobel Laureates: Lord Alexander
Todd, the 1957 recipient for chemistry, and
Carl and Gerty Cori, the 1947 recipients for
medicine, Purich said.
Fried served in the army during World
War II and soon after joined the faculty at
UF. When Fried started at UF, only three to
four faculty members staffed
Local the biochemistry department.
News Today more than 20 teach-
ers, along with the students
and technicians who work in the lab, scur-
ry about and continue building his legacy,
While biochemistry and the growing
department dominated his interests, he still
found time to pursue outside interests such
as urban planning, which caught his eye
after living in Gainesville.
"Developers just wanted to move in and
develop," Purich said. "He didn't want de-
velopers to simply grind up Gainesville."
In addition to urban planning, he devel-
oped a spoken and written fluency in both
Although he retired in 1993, the cur-
rent biochemistry staff still knew his face
through his weekly trips to the biochemis-
try division, Purich said.
"I just think he is a very fine person,"
Purich said. "Even though he's been re-
tired... he kept such a close relationship
with all the people in the department."
Although he kept close ties to his fellow
friends and colleagues, his death came as
a shock. Purich said Fried was a man who
didn't want others to worry about him,
explaining why he was very private about
Hiding his illness was a testament to his
character, Purich said.
"He was much more interested in learn-
ing about others how they were doing
and how he could help them," he said.

In exactly 71 days, the Stephen

will voluntarily be on their feet and
awake for 32 consecutive hours.
Today marks the last day of a
week filled with festivities to pro-
mote registration for the 12th an-

raised more than $319,000.

after a week of roller skating, cof-
fee and food. Emily Kiser, public
relations chairwoman for the Dance
Marathon Overall Team, said this
year may have the highest registra-
tion yet. She expects about 700 stu-
dents will register for the event.
Matt Katz, a 20-year-old geog-

Katz, who is considering participat-

Applications can be submitted
online or in the Student Activities
Center in the Reitz Union, Room
This year more non-Greek-affili-
ated groups have registered for the
event as a result of a recruitment
team visiting groups around cam-
pus a few times a week, Kiser said.
This week also focused on
reaching out to the Gainesville com-
munity, Kiser said. While Dance
Marathon 2006 is a UF event, Kiser
said she wanted to make sure the
Gainesville community felt a part of
the festivities as well.
Kiser said local Dance Marathon
2006 supporters have been more
than willing to help out. In addition
to Joe's Deli, Deja Brew and Skate
Station Funworks were willing to
assist with festivities this week.

Students and alumni looking for
job opportunities, internships or just
interview experience can find it all at
the Career Showcase, Jan. 24 and 25

The format, though, the same as last
fall's Showcase, is somewhat different
from previous years'.
The first day is dedicated to students
looking for technical positions and the
second day for non-technical positions.
With a widely diverse group of em-
ployers from government organizations
to non-profit groups to, international
employers, students of all majors and
interests should come see what the
Showcase has to offer.

Tips to remember for success with potential employers
By Megan Davis
The chance to sell yourself as a prime
job candidate to about 300 employers is
just around the corner, and the odds are
in your favor.
"The economy is really, really good right
now, and there's lots of jobs," said Farouk
Dey, the associate director for career de-
velopment at the Career Resource Center.
To help ensure your success at the 2006
Career Showcase, here are some tips.
The resume should one concise page
highlighting your education, skills, rel-
evant coursework and experience is typi-
cally preferred, Dey said.
He recommends using 10- to 12-point
font, such as Times New Roman. Also list
your GPA, especially if it is above 3.0.
"If a GPA is not included, the employers
become very suspicious and want to know
what you're trying to hide," Dey said.
List references on a separate page in
case employers request them, said Nadene
Francis, the assistant director for CRC
THE COVER LETTER
"Treat the cover letter as dn extension to
your resume, not repeating the information
on the resume," Dey said.
He suggests telling the employer what
you want and why you are qualified in
three or four simple, formally written
Get to the point quickly, but grab the
employer's attention, too. Employers read
hundreds of cover letters from UF alone.
"You want something to stand out,"
"Everything is about explaining to the
employer why you're a good fit for the
company, not just why you're an awesome
person," Francis said.
To sign up for interviews, register with
Gator CareerLink, the online interview
Then research the company and prac-
tice possible answers in front of a mirror,
Dey recommends confident and concise
answers. When discussing your skills, in-
clude specific examples or experiences.
"That's the biggest problem studelits
have; they don't mention past examples,"
Wear close-toed shoes, go light on the
cologne or perfume and dress profession-
"If you're considering between the pink
suit or a light blue suit or black, go with
the black," Francis said.

Humphrey returns home to cobblers, hecklers
* GATORS WILL TRAVEL TO
ROCKY TOP TO FACE MUCH
By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
Lee Humphrey's family has be-
come a part of the Gators' annual
trip to Knoxville, Tenn.
The past two seasons, the UF
guard's family drove from nearby
Maryville, just 16 miles away, to de-
liver desserts to the team at its hotel
the night before its game against
Humphrey's personal favorite:
blackberry cobbler. But the Gators'
3-point specialist doubts his team-
mates feel the same-way about the
"[My parents] bring some other
things," Humphrey said. "I don't
think some of the guys like cobbler
as much as I do."
Not that the rest of the team
doesn't appreciate the gesture.
"It's a nice change of pace," for-
ward Adrian Moss said. "Southern
cooking, a lot of pies, cakes, cobbler,
stuff like that kind of what I'm
used to, being from Texas."

against the Tigers on Jan. 14. The Tennessee native will return home Saturday to face the Volunteers.

laid-back country vibe that personi-

"The best person I could com-

Moss said. "Lee is Gomer Pyle, in
the naive Gomer Pyle-way. You
know what I mean? But Lee is a
great dude; I love Lee to death."
The Gators(17-0,3-0 Southeastern
Conference) will take Humphrey
back home when they face the Vols
(11-3, 2-1 SEC) at 7 p.m. Saturday.
But Humphrey might not find
himself so welcome by the 'crowd
at Tennessee's Thompson-Boling
Arena, which can seat about 25,000
people, more than double the capac-
ity of the O'Connell Center.
"It's going to be a big crowd.
They've had a good year,"
Humphrey said. "They're pretty ex-

"I've always felt like they have good

Gators rebound for victory
By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
Focusing on rebounding going into
Thursday's game at Mississippi, the UF
guards nearly forgot how to score.
Danielle Santos jogged her memory late in
the second half.
She scored 12 points, all on 3-pointers, in a
span of 2 minute, 51 seconds, late in the game,
spurring UF to a 66-58 win to avoid a three-
game losing streak.
Santos earned her first career double-dou-
ble with 13 rebounds and dished a team-high
"I've got to compliment Danielle for having
the guts," UF coach Carolyn Peck said. "She
stepped up like a senior to win the game in-
stead of staying hesitant or tentative."
Santos' hot shooting started with UF down
43-39 and ended with the Gators up 55-46 with
Prior to Santos' run, the UF guards com-
bined to go 1 of 23 from the field, including
missing all 13 from behind the arc.
But guards Sarah Lowe and Kim Dye made
up for that by finding Santos late.
"Sarah Lowe did a tremendous job of find-
ing Danielle, and then after she hit one, she did
a good job of finding her again," Peck said.
"That strategy of going to the hot hand was.
very good for us."
Those passes helped hide a poor scoring
night from the UF backcourt.

a senior to win the game instead
of staying hesitant or tentative."

Lee's 3's key to success
HOOPS, from page 19
Humphrey's shooting from beyond
the arc may be the key to silencing
the hostile crowd in a matchup of the
SEC's two top-scoring offenses.
His 51.9 percent shooting from
3-point territory leads the SEC, rank-
ing just ahead of teammate Taurean
Green's 45.6 percentage.
S"I would line him up with anybody,
and I've been here 10 years, open, spot-
up shooting," Donovan said. "[Matt]
Bonner, Mike Miller, [Teddy] Dupay,
' [Matt] Walsh, [Anthony] Roberson
he can shoot with anybody."
And Humphrey's teammates know
what kind of a talent he is, and encour-
age him to shoot as often as possible.
"He doesn't shoot enough," Moss
said. "Literally, Lee could shoot the
ball every time he touches it, and I
wouldn't care. But he's just not that
type of guy. If Lee has an open shot,
and someone has a better shot, he's go-
ing to get rid of it. But I'd rather see Lee
shoot the ball."
Ailing Dotson scores career-game
WOMEN, from page 19
Eshe scored 14 while picking up 11
rebounds and three blocks.
Dotson, who missed practices this
week due to sickness, finished with 13
points and added 10 rebounds for her
second career double-double. UF's em-
phasis on crashing the boards paid off.
The Gators finished with 50 rebounds.
"When you saw Kentucky do
that against us with 55 [rebounds], I
thought, Well, is that humanly pos-
sible?'" Peck said. "For us to break the
50-rebound barrier was very good for
us. Ole Miss had 52, but we're making
progress in the right direction."
Mississippi coach Carol Ross, the
all-time winningest coach in UF his-
tory, recruited Santos, Davis, Eshe and
Lowe four years ago.
Thursday was the first time Ross'
recruits have won at Oxford.
"It's a special win because our
seniors have not won here," Peck
said. "As you well know, in the SEC,
there's no easy win and especially on
Radio broadcast contributed to this report.
SAFI, from page 19
my girlfriend believes that my love for recruit-
ing belongs "on the mantle of nerdiness."
Fair enough, but there is so much hope and
optimism involved that it's hard not to get
swept up. For example, a five-star running back
who commits is immediately envisioned as the
next Reggie Bush. Following recruiting can be
more fun than the regular season because it's
all about wins and rarely about losses.
Urban's first real recruiting class is off the
charts. Every single kid at a skill position seems
to run either a 4.4 or 4.5 time in the 40. To suc-
ceed in the SEC, you need speed, and it looks
like Meyer has caught on.
Speaking of speed, the Gators received a
commitment from WR Percy Harvin, the No.
1 overall prospect. in the nation according to
most analysts. Harvin is a game-breaker, a
dangerous return man and the type of weapon
Meyer has dreamt about.
Basically, if Harvin can live up to his rank-
ing, the Gators should start looking forward to
frequent BCS Bowl trips.
A bit of insider information Harvin is a
monster talent; however, he has had trouble
with his ego and authority in the past. He has
been suspended for three games during his last
two seasons in high school. Combine that with
Meyer's no-nonsense attitude, and you have a
potential conflict on your hands.
Personally, if UF cares about winning, then I
suggest they recruit all the thugs they can find.
There seems to be a direct correlation be-
tween talent and sketchy personalities. Just
look to the history of the Miami Hurricanes
football program for proof.
With National Signing Day rapidly ap-
proaching here's a rundown of the top remain-
ing prospects UF is.looking to lure:
5) RB Mon Williams The Gators have ev-
ery position wrapped up except running back,
and this burner out of Texas is high on playing
for the Orange and Blue.
4) LB Josh Johnson A junior college kid
who got kicked out of Georgia, but UF could
use a guy with a mean streak like his at line-
3) DT Phillip Taylor This 6-foot-3, 346-
pounder could play both defensive tackle spots
2) OT Ian Symonette All you need to
know is that he is 6-foot-9 and 330 pounds. It
would be frightening to have this guy as your
1) C.J. Spiller The No. 2 ranked RB in the
nation. Alongside quarterback Tim Tebow and
Harvin, Spiller would give the Gators an awe-
some offensive arsenal for years to come.
