UF sophomore forward Corey Brewer walks off the court after the Gators suffered their first loss
of the season to the Volunteers on Saturday in Knoxville, Tenn.
By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. Early
Saturday afternoon, St. John's and
Georgetown, two of UF coach Billy
Donovan's old Big East rivals,
opened the door for his Gators.
As day turned to night, the Gators
were left standing as the only unde-
feated team in college basketball.
All they needed was a win on
Rocky Top to push the door wide
open and claim their first No. 1 rank-
ing in more than two years.
But almost as soon as the door
creaked open, Chris Lofton and the
Volunteers kicked it back shut.
Lofton scored 29 points and made
a critical steal in the final minute to
set up the go-ahead bucket and the
Volunteers ended the Gators' 17-
game win streak with a 80-76 loss.
"It sucks losing," said center Al
Horford, who finished with 11 points
and eight rebounds. "I hate this feel-
ing, and we've just got to get over
The loss dropped the Gators to
17-1 and 3-1 in the Southeastern
Conference, while the Volunteers
improved to 12-3 and 3-1 in the SEC
after winning only six league games
a season ago. While the Gators
wouldn't say that a loss had relieved
a lot of the pressure that had been
building the longer their winning
streak went on, they were able to put
the loss in perspective.
"These days, there's nobody that's
going ,to go unbeaten probably,"
Horford said. "There's too many
good teams, so we're just trying to be
the best we can be."
Undone in the game's final stretch
by turnovers and Tennessee's domi-
nation of the offensive glass, the
Gators had their chances to remain
With the scored tied at 76 and less
than a minute to play, sophomore
forward Corey Brewer pushed the
ball upcourt for a two-on-one fast
break with teammate Joakim Noah.

SG deficit requires cuts
* THE REITZ UNION, REC SPORTS
AND SG WILL BE HIT THE HARDEST.
By LYNDSEY LEWIS
and ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Student Government officials said next
year's budget will incur a deficit of about
Most of the money to reduce that
deficit will come from budget cuts
made to the Reitz Union, the Division
of Recreational Sports and SG itself, said
Stan Beckerdite, business manager at the
SG Finance Office.
"In the six years I've been here, this
has been the first time the budget has not
grown," Beckerdite said.
Although SG officials anticipated an
84-cent-per-credit-hour increase in the
Activity & Service Fee that funds SG's
budget, UF's Board of Trustees only ap-
proved a 60-cent increase'in December,
which brings next year's budget to just
under $12 million.
Increases in the A&S Fee contribute
to determining the percentage by which
student organizations can increase their
budgets from the previ-
UaJ .. ous year.

is usually around 5 per-

UF's energy bills rising
By JESSICA RIFFEL
UF will spend about $6 million more
on energy in 2006 due to increased fuel
costs, a UF official said.
"We went into the year with deficits,
and this is just exacerbating that situa-
tion," said Ed Poppell, UF vice president
for Administrative Affairs.
Poppell said UF officials are evaluat-
ing where the $6 million is going to come
* from. He said UF may have to delay
projects and cut down on maintenance
in order to pay this year's energy bill.
UF spent about $28 million on energy
in 2005. Poppell said hurricane damage
contributed to higher energy costs last
Since 1948, UF has received its energy
from Progress Energy Florida, a utility
company based in St.

At a joint Public Safety Committee and Community
Development Committee meeting on Thursday, many aired
"They are becoming active at the time I go to bed," said
Mary Anne Gularte. She added that she now has to sleep in "a
series of naps."
Many at the meeting proposed simply enforcing the existing
city ordinances to help bring the students back in line.
They should have stopped to examine whether the ordi-
nances should be enforced in the first place.
Maybe we can get behind noise ordinances. Nobody wants
to be woken up in the middle of the night just because there's a
party going on next door.
But some of the other regulations are more dubious. One
prohibits parking on front lawns. Another allows only three or
fewer unrelated people to live in areas zoned as single-family
We don't think either of those issues is the city's business.
If students want to drive all over their front lawns and have
10 people living in one house, well, that's their decision. The
government and busybody residents need to recognize when
to butt out.
Other "solutions" to residents' problems were equally ques-
tionable. One proposal was to increase landlord permit costs,
obviously in the hopes of having fewer students invading resi-
We think that the higher costs would probably just encour-
age more students to pack into already crowded homes.
Another suggestion, made by City Commissioner Chuck
Chestnut, was to encourage UF officials to "issue penalties to
students based on off-campus violations."
Besides being wildly beyond the jurisdiction of the UF ad-
ministration, it's difficult to imagine a more student-unfriendly
policy. Such penalties would effectively punish students twice
- once by police for the original infraction, and once by the
Discrimination against UF students isn't new, but it's rare
that we see it promoted so openly.
City Attorney Marion Radson seemed to recognize the root
of the problem. "There is no new campus housing," she noted.
"So what is the result? There are more rental houses in our
As the university continues to grow, we can expect more
students to move into residential neighborhoods.
But we have to ask why this city is inherently unfriendly to
students, especially when the university's growth could be a
godsend for urban revitalization.
At a Gainesville City Commission forum on Tuesday,
candidates argued persuasively for UF to expand its facilities
"UF is really the answer to East Gainesville because you
need a strong anchor," said candidate Tony Domenech.
Revitalizing East Gainesville is a noble goal. However, mak-
ing the city unlivable for students won't help.
Any growth for the university must be supported by growth
in the student body.
And that means more students in more neighborhoods.
A recurring theme in Gainesville's historic narrative is the
lack of student representation in the halls of power.
Students may be partly to blame for not getting involved.
But we don't exactly see the City Commission reaching out to
their underrepresented constituencies.
There were no students present at Thursday's meeting.
That didn't seem to slow anybody down.

Did bin Laden, or the news media for that matter, think
Bush was ready to negotiate?
In a new audiotape, the al-Qaeda chief offers a long-
term truce if the U.S. military is withdrawn from Iraq and
Afghanistan. He spends most of the tape claiming that
insurgents in Iraq and Afghanistan are winning the war
against the U.S.-led coalition. He states that he believes a
truce would be in everybody's best interest.
But there's something disingenuous about bin Laden's
cockiness. Winners don't ask for truces. Chubby kids play-
ing dodge ball ask for truces.
In November 2002, bin Laden wrote a comprehensive
"letter to the American people" in which he didn't exactly
call for a truce. He made a long list of grievances against
Americans and claimed the chief solution was for every-
one to convert to Islam.
Then he complained about our gambling and other im-
moral practices. He summed up his distaste for our nation
by writing, "It is saddening to tell you that you are the
worst civilization witnessed by the history of mankind."
In the new audiotape, bin Laden talks a lot less about
the importance of jihad and has scaled down his demands
dramatically. He doesn't have much to bargain with now,
and he knows it.
Bin Laden keeps threatening to commit another Sept.
11-style tragedy in America but has consistently failed to
do so. He mocks our security measures as ones that stomp
on civil liberties. But he knows those same measures have
made implementing another attack much more difficult.
And in Iraq, the insurgency is losing ground by the day.

Letters to the Editor
No scandal in Cosimi un-resignation
I have found the coverage of Lindsay
Cosimi's resignation and reappointment to
be frustrating. It seems yesterday's letters to
the editor are looking for a scandal that just
is not there. There is no precedent and thus
no tested procedure for handling a resigna-
tion. This paper is constantly berating SG for
putting politics and procedure before stu-
dents' best interest, but having anyone else
in the position during budgeting for more
than 400 student organizations would be. a
disservice to those groups. Cosimi has done
a fantastic job for the past year and was re-
elected unanimously in the Student Senate
for a reason: She is the most qualified and
best person to be Student Body treasurer.
Cosimi cheated to maintain her office
Thank you for choosing to publish the
article on the assistant treasurers not being
informed of Lindsay Cosimi's plans. I'm
glad the entire student body had the chance
to read and find out about the actions of
Treasurer Cosimi. She should not have been
allowed to nominate herself for re-election.
In the article, Freya Birdie, one of Cosimi's
nominations for treasurer, stated that Cosimi
kind of kept it as "take your role and make
it what you will." Birdie's statement proves
that Cosimi nominated herself and two un-
qualified candidates in order to purposely
have herself re-elected. Cosimi once said she
lives and dies for her position. This time I
feel she cheated for her position.
Cosimi is responsible for training the as-
sistant treasurers. If she still hasn't trained
about half of them, as she claims in the arti-
cle, then she has not done her job. Even after
the publishing of the article, Cosimi still has
not responded to my e-mails and the mes-
sage I left at the office. Her actions during
the term, her resignation and her re-election
are all unprofessional and unacceptable. She
should re-resign and stay resigned. I feel
that as long as she is in office, SG will only
stand for Shady Government.
Flag burning nota legitimate protest
It was with a strange curiosity that I read
an article posted in the Wednesday edition
of the Alligator that attempted to align flag
burning with legitimate forms of protest such
as boycotting and hunger strikes. As though
this ridiculous argument was not misguided
enough, the author, Mike Stephan, had the
nerve to compare the desecration of the U.S.
flag to the ceremonious act of retiring a flag as
conducted by the Boy Scouts of America.
As an Eagle Scout, I want to inform the
readers that any similarity simply does not
exist. Boy Scouts fold and lower the flag into
a fire. The sole purpose of the ceremony is to
lay to rest a living symbol that is no longer fit
to represent the United States of America. All
those in attendance stand at attention, saluting
the flag and reciting the Pledge of Allegiance
as specified by the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
These solemn ceremonies are conducted-
with the utmost respect. There is no self-
gratification through, shock. The action isn't
motivated by the desire to garnish attention
for a cause.

Effectively, the Krishnas are selling food

More importantly, they are not paying fees
to UF as every other food vendor on campus
does. UF needs to take proactive steps to as-

Furthermore, they need to assure the

Applicants should be judged on merit
Joe BunkeI think the article "Students Petition
Levin" is definitely not front-page news, if
you can even consider it news at all. I don't
understand why people make such a big deal
about minority enrollment in institutions,
especially at the graduate level. Getting into
law school is not a right. It's a privilege. If you
are the most qualified applicant, you should
get in. If you aren't, you shouldn't.
It's that simple.
What can the administration do?
Accept under-qualified people so that
some students will feel more comfortable
sitting in the classroom? What are these
students going to do if they get to court
and everyone around them is Caucasian?
The judge is not going to declare a mistrial
just because there isn't anyone else there
who looks like you.
Law school prepares students for the
real world. In the real world, you don't
always get to pick who sits down next to
I would be extremely surprised if very
many students decided not to come here
because of the low minority percentage.
Students go to the best law school they can
get into. UF has a very good law school.
I sat quiet when the controversy with
the cartoon came out. I also sat quiet
when the administration felt it necessary
to invade my mailbox with messages on
how it's necessary to promote diversity

LGBT faces student opposition
By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
UF's Director of Lesbian, Gay,
Bisexual and Transgender Affairs
Tamara Cohen is not worried
about the students who spoke
against LGBT at Tuesday night's
Student Senate meeting.
Christina Miller and two other
students told the Senate that LGBT
Affairs was unnecessary and they
did not want UF and the state to
pay for it.
The LGBT activities budget
comes from three different sources:
$2,000 are marked as educational
and general operating expenses,
which is money provided by the
state; $3,500 comes from conces-
sions on campus, such as vending
machines; and a little more than
$1,000 comes from the work-study
program to pay for a student as-
sistant, said Associate Dean of
Students Mary Kay Schneider.
Miller, 19, a second-year ac-
counting major and a resident as-
sistant at Mallory Hall, said that in
the days after Tuesday's meeting,
some students approached her
to express support for her cause
and told her they were afraid of
reprisals if they agreed with her
"As long as it is true that
there is a big part of the
population that hears
comments and attempts
to commit suicide, there
exists the need to sup-
port and educate."
UF's Director of Lesbian, Gay, Bi-
sexual and Transgender Affairs
She also said LGBT created an
atmosphere that doses discussion
and creates discrimination against
students of different religions and
ideologies "students who want
to make moral choices within their
However, Cohen said she
respects people with different
opinions, and as director of LGBT
Affairs she was there to help stu-
dents succeed academically and
personally and to make sure they
were not being harassed.
"We can open up dialogue,"
she said. "I'm interested in that
as much as [Miller] is. We can find
points of disagreements and talk
Furthermore, Cohen said
LGBT did not exist to take a politi-
cal stand, but to educate.
"As long as it is true that there
is a big part of the population that
hears comments and attempts to
commit suicide, there exists the
need to support and educate,"
Pride Student Union President
Adelle Fontanet said she was not
worried about discrimination
because there was a positive re-
sponse to LGBT during the Senate
"We are a little frustrated be-
cause we thought that we were
beyond that, but not too upset
because Student -Government
supports LGBT," Fontanet said.

Put your best suit forward
Attire key for Career Showcase success
By MELISSA SMILES
Alligator Contributing Writer
Every semester, a sea of students in suits
floods the Stephen C. O'Connell Center for the
Career Showcase. The typical student carries
dozens of resumes and sports a printed name
But for many employers, what students
wear could be just as important as their pro-
fessional experiences and personality.
During the semi-annual Career Showcase
on Tuesday and Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 3
p.m., the importance of dress is relative to dif-
ferent occupations. Non-technical fields gen-
erally put a greater emphasis on candidates'
dress than technical fields.
"There are people I wouldn't even talk to
based on how they were dressed," said Stacy
Keene, a manager of Dillard's in The Oaks
Mall. "If they didn't put in the effort, I didn't
take them seriously."
Keene attended the Fall 2005 Career
Showcase and will have a booth at this semes-
Keene recommends that women wear a
dark three-piece suit, cosed-toe shoes and a
conservative hairstyle. Men should wear a
dark wool suit with a crisp, white or blue long-
sleeved shirt, and the tie should have stripes
or a conservative pattern.
"In retail, people are going to be judged on
their appearance, and you need to look profes-

Joel Howell, business development man-
ager for Harris Corp., a communication sys-
temns and technologies company, said dress
is the least important factor out of experience,
personality and appearance.
Harris Corp. employees stand out at Career
Showcase because while most companies
come in company shirts or suits, Harris Corp.
employees wear Hawaiian shirts. Howell was
at the Fall 2005 Career Showcase and will also
be at the upcoming showcase.
"We choose to come with Hawaiian shirts
to kind of show people the type of atmosphere
that we have at Harris," Howell said.

to turn those folks away. People that care so
much about their work don't usually care as

Different companies have different cul-

Author examines education gap
* DAVID BROOKS SPEAKS AT
UF ON TUESDAY AT 6:30 P.M.
By ADRIANNA C. RODRIGUEZ
Alligator Contributing Writer
With Florida's low rankings in
graduation rates, teacher pay and
student reading levels, the College
of Education sees plenty to do in the
way of improving education.
The college kicks off its year-
long centennial celebration with a
discussion about the education gap
in the United States by New York
Times columnist David Brooks. He
is scheduled to speak Tuesday at
6:30 p.m. in Emerson Alumni Hall.
Brooks," whose books include
"On Paradise Drive: How We
Live Now (And Always Have) in
the Future Tense" and "BoBos in
Paradise: The New Upper Class and
How They Got There," will address
how race, poverty and gender dif-
ferences affect education, a topic he
has also addressed in his columns.
"It's not just for students," said
Larry Lansford, director of news
and publications for the College of
Education. "Anyone interested in
education and educational reform
will benefit from this talk."
The free event will also include
a panel discussion with UF profes-
sors and local educators, a reception
and book sale and signing at 8 p.m..
Lansford said many of the issues
Brooks addresses in his columns
parallel the issues addressed by
students in the college, such as
school improvement programs in
He pointed to the Lastinger
Center for Learning that, through
its Florida Flagship' Schools net-
work of about 19 schools; works to
help schools improve their grades.
The grades are state rankings based
primarily on students' scores on the
Florida Comprehensive Assessment
Test, or FCAT.
Charles W. Duval Elementary
School in Gainesville went from an
F grade in 2002 to an A in 2003 and
2004 with the help of the Florida
Flagship Schools network. In 2005,
the school earned a grade of B.
The school's principal, Leanetta
McNealy, will be a panelist at
Bernard Oliver, professor and
director of the UF Alliance at the
College of Education, which works
with high poverty, low-performing
high schools in the state, said he
sees a renewed interest in reform-
ing high schools and getting off the
D and F list.
"Florida is not doing too well,"
Oliver said. "It's a really complex
Oliver cited high drop-out rates,
low graduation rates, poor teacher
quality and an achievement gap be-
tween ethnicities as major problems
plaguing high schools in Florida.
High schools need to get out of
the 8 a.m.-to-3 p.m. mode and do
more to connect students to college
by offering college-credit courses,
While Oliver, who will also be
a panelist, said he would wait to
see what Brooks says as points for
discussion in the panel, he hopes
students will come away with an
understanding of how race and cul-
ture impact teaching and learning.

Forest Ridge homeowners call for strict regulations
Forest Ridge homeowners call for strict regulations
By NICK PATRICK
While some Gainesville residents are tired
of noisy students and over-occupied homes,
some students feel they are being targeted by
residents who want to drive them out.
A group of residents called for stricter
city code enforcement at a joint Public Safety
Committee and Community Development
Committee meeting on Thursday.
At the meeting, residents complained
about students' late-night parties, homes be-
ing over-occupied and other code violations.
"I don't object at students living in my
neighborhood, but I do object at the daily
activity occurring across the street from me,"
Forest Ridge resident Jodi Gentry said at the
Several students living in Forest Ridge, lo-
cated about a mile north of UF'sLevin College

Brett Selby, a UF sophomore who moved into
Forest Ridge last August. "People will walk
by and make a point not to look at us or talk
Selby, 20, said he and his roommates have
not done anything to warrant cold shoulders
or stricter city codes.
"There aren't any crazy parties," he said.
"It isn't a frat house."
Selby and his roommates have a good re-
lationship with everyone living dose to them,
which makes it confusing why others in the
community would be upset, he said.
"It's strange that they're mad when our
immediate neighbors don't have a problem,"
This is true according to Selby's neighbor,

"They're not loud, not crazy," Campbell
said. "They're fine. Good neighbors."
The hostility toward student residents was
evident at a recent neighborhood association
meeting, said 19-year-old SFCC sophomore
"We found out about it accidentally," said
Widmaier, adding that several other students
did not receive notice of the meeting.
During the meeting, residents discussed
how to make city codes tougher on students,
Some of the codes residents want strength-
ened include those regarding noise violations,
over-occupied homes and parking limits.
"They said they want Gainesville to be
known for its code enforcement like Waldo is
known for its speed traps," Widmaier said.
One student said he was accosted while
walking down a street near his house.
"A guy pulled up and asked where I was
going," UF junior Brian Bahn said. "I didn't
feel like I had to tell him, so he threatened to
call the cops."
The man waited in front of Bahn's house
until he went inside, he said.
"We're the devil, and they want us out,"
Students often receive paperwork about
regulations and complaints, he said.
"I could have a forest of papers they've
left for me," Bahn said. "It's a lot of work over

Regional Utilities, which can
adjust its rates monthly, Progress
Energy is allowed to adjust its
rates no more than twice a year.
Drake said the $6 million is a
rough estimate since that number
is dependent on UF's energy con-
sumption in 2006.
Poppell said UF is always
looking for ways to conserve
energy. He mentioned that every
other fluorescent light bulb was
taken out in many UF hallways.
"We hope it will save $90,000
each year," Poppell said.
But he added that is not a huge
difference relative to the projected
"Your big energy costs are in
heating and cooling, and there's
only so much you can do with
that," Poppell said.
He said the buildings must
remain cool enough so humidity
doesn't damage the structure.
But Drake said UF could
regain all of the $6 million by
making the campus more energy
On Wednesday, officials
from Energy Systems Group, a
subdivision of Progress Energy,
presented ways UF can conserve
energy and decrease its bill.
The company presented UF
Physical Plant Division officials
with energy-saving tips after
completing-a study on five cam-
pus buildings, said Eric Cochran,
associate director of the Physical
"One of the items was behav-
ioral modification turn off the
lights and such," Cochran said.
"They also said to go back into the
air-conditioning machinery to see
if they are operating as efficiently
as they were designed. Its kind of
like a tune-up on a car."
Cochran said Energy Systems
Group suggested that UF build
a waste-energy plant where tree
limbs, paper and other refuse
could be used to create steam for
heating and cooling.
Since the cost of natural gas is
spiking, Progress Energy is look-
ing for ways to rely more on other
energy sources, Drake said.
"We want UF to know that
we're doing everything we can
to mitigate the impact of these
increases," Drake said.

Dane Bradshaw for the game-
winning basket. With one last
gasp for UF, heavily heckled
Tennessee native Lee Humphrey
launched an errant 3-pointer to
an onslaught of boos.
Lofton grabbed the rebound,
was fouled and sank two free
throws to secure the victory.
"I never ever talk about win-
ning and losing with them,"
Donovan said after the game. "I
never talk about SEC champion-
ships. I never talk about a na-
tional championship. All I talk
about is us being the best we
can be. And to me, if we become
the best we can be, to me that's
more valuable than a ranking or
Though some UF players
didn't watch Duke's 87-84 loss
to Georgetown Saturday after-
noon, they all were aware that
the Blue Devils had fallen, and
realized their opportunity to as-
cend to the peak of the national
polls after starting the season
"I mean, we had it in the
back of our minds," point guard
Taurean Green said. "But we
knew we had a tough game com-
ing up, and we just had to focus
on the game."
Donovan insisted an unde-
feated record and a No. 1 rank-
ing was never a priority and said
the Gators will rebound.from the
"I said this before and peo-
ple think I'm nuts, and it's not
true but today they weren't
17-0," Donovan said. "We were
0-0. Today was a new season;
Wednesday at South Carolina
starts a new season ... That's the
way you've got to approach it,
because I think it allows you to
keep some kind of a level play-
ing field emotionally."
"I never ever talk
about winning and
losing with them. I
never talk about SEC
never talk about a na-
All I talk about is us
being the best we can
be. And to me, if we
become the best we
can be, to me that's
more valuable than a
ranking or winning."
DEFICIT, from page 1
Beckerdite added that the
Legislature is to blame for the
deficit, because it limits all tu-
ition-linked fees which include
Health and Athletic fees to a
yearly increase of 5 percent.
However, many SG-funded
organizations said the unusually
low percentage increase will not
affect their programming.
Organizations must face at
least two rounds of budget hear-
ings, the first of which occurred
Yarkin Ulku, treasurer of
Volunteers for International
Student Affairs, said this year's
cap increase still left more than
enough money to cover his
organization's activities for the
He also said each of VISA's
14 active umbrella groups, such
as the Friendship Association of
Chinese Students and Scholars,
are expected to have enough
funding for next year.
"Everyone got what they want-
ed, pretty much," Ulku said.
Hispanic Student Association
President Jessica Klahr concurred,
saying that as long as organiza-
tional budgets are allowed an
increase, HSA will be able to con-
tinue with its planned activities.
In order for student organiza-
tions to continue growing and
functioning through the upcom-
ing year, Beckerdite said, a 3.6
percent increase to this year's
budget is necessary.
"It's not as large an increase
as we wanted, but I don't think
it will hurt programming too
much," said Kshama Shah, trea-
surer of the Asian American
Beckerdite emphasized that
the 3.6 percent cap on budget in-
creases will not cover the $309,000
The Reitz Union, Recreational
Sports and SG which are known
as the "Big Three" will compen-
sate for most of the costs.
The Big Three budget was cre-
ated last Summer at initial budget

No. 2 Auburn clinches win in final strokes of meet
By RACHEL ROBINS
Both teams knew the 400-yard freestyle
relay would determine the winner.
An impromptu timeout before the race
started a cheer-off among the swimmers.
"I have never been more proud to be a
Florida Gator than I was today," said senior
Brian Hartley, who swam anchor in the relay
Even though the Gators trailed when
Hartley jumped into the water, he thought
he still had a shot. It just was not meant to
"Basically, he's a sprinter, and I am not,"
Hartley said about the race's final leg.
The No. 7 UF men's swimming team
ended the relay in third place and lost to No.
2 Auburn by 4 points.
UF coach Gregg Troy knew the Gators
had to swim flawless in order to win the
final relay and the meet.
"We knew we had to put it away before
the last relay because they have so many
great swimmers," Troy said. "I can't com-
plain, though. I thought the weekend was
good overall, and it was a little disappoint-
ing to not bring this one home. We had a
chance to put them away and just ran out
The No. 7 men's (8-3, 4-1 Southeastern
Conference) loss was the seventh consecu-
tive to the Tigers, while the No. 4 UF wom-
en's team (9-2, 4-2 SEC) have not beaten
Auburn since 1994, after losing 178-120 to
The Gators came into Saturday's meet
after defeating Alabama on Friday.
Under specific instructions from Troy,
UF sophomore Grant Johnson defeated
Alabama's Mark Randall in the 500 free,
helping the Gators to a 178-97 win against
the Crimson Tide.
Troy told Johnson to take Randall down
in the last 150 yards of the middle-distance
race. Besides defeating one of Alabama's best
distance swimmers, Johnson also knocked 9
seconds off of his previous time in the event
for an NCAA provisional B time.
Johnson called the race a big confidence-
"I just wanted to lay it all on the line and
just race," Johnson said.
In a two-team meet, the UF women's
team defeated Alabama 79-60 and Arkansas
Despite following with a loss to Auburn,
Saturday's was a successful meet for one UF
swimmer. Jamie Reid won the 200 backstroke
with a time of 1:57.71, automatically qualify-
ing her for the NCAA meet in March.
And in spite of the loss to the Tigers,
many UF swimmers are already looking
ahead to a post-season rematch.
"It's going to b6 a dog fight at SECs and
NCAAs," Hartley said. "This is just round
one out of three."

Senior Elliott Meena swims for the Gators against Alabama on Friday at the O'Connell Center. The UF men's team defeated the

Gators look to improve in 2006
By BRIAN STEELE
The UF softball team will not
play its first official game for more
than two weeks.
However, that does not mean the
Gators will not have game experi-
"We're putting our team in as
many game-like situations as we
possible can," head Coach Tim
Walton said. "Our goal is to work
on everything that can happen in
a seven-inning game of softball to
prepare us to win a championship. I
want to put as much pressure on the
team as we can."
After being hired last June to
replace former coach Karen Johns,
Walton looks to reshape a program
that had a disappointing end to
last year losing both their regional
games at home. After taking Wichita
State to their first NCAA tourna-
ment in 16 years, Walton began to
gain national recognition as one of
the top young coaches in the nation.
Now it will be Walton's job to do the
same in Gainesville.
With that disappointing finish,
many other teams are somewhat
doubting the Gators, as they
were picked, to finish third in the
Southeastern Conference East
Division by the league's coaches.
UF received only one first-place
vote. Alabama led the West Division
polling with seven first-place votes.
"Our goal is to work on
everything that can happen
in a seven-inning game of
softball to prepare us to win
a championship. I want to-
put as much pressure on
the team as we can."
Coach Tim Walton
UF softball coach
Apparently none of the league's
coaches talked to senior All-SEC
outfielder Lindsey Cameron.
"You guys can expect great
things because we're really going
to do it this year," the senior said.
"Coach Walton is amazing. He
knows everything about the game
and more. He's done wonders.
Nobody can see yet, but you will
when we step out on the field."
Still, if UF is to progress as hoped,
having another late-season collapse
is not an option. The Gators lost 11
of their final 16 games last year, in-
cluding a seven-game losing streak.
In six of the seven losses during the
streak, UF lost by an average of two
runs per game.

* JUNIOR JUMPER MIKE MORRISON LEADS
MEN'S TRACK TEAM AT GATOR INVITATIONAL
By ALEX WEINTRAUB
The UF men's and women's track and field teams
participated in the annual.Gator Invitational on Saturday
at the O'Connell Center against teams from throughout
the South, including intrastate rivals Florida State, Florida
International; Jacksonville, and Florida A&M.
The men's team picked up one automatic bid and two
provisional bids. The women's team received three provi-
sional bids by the end of the meet. Leading the men, junior
Mike Morrison received an NCAA automatic mark in the
high jump and added another in the long jump. The team's
other provisional bid came from senior Shane Stroup, who
docked in at 4 minutes, 2.84 seconds in the mile.
"We were looking for commitment from our athletes,
and they stepped up and competed better then they did last
week," said UF men's coach Mike Holloway. "Today, we
took some big steps in the right direction."
The women's team received provisional bids from se-
niors Rachel Longfors and Jen Wynn in the weight throw.
Walk-on junior Candace Cabey received the other provi-
sional bid for the women's team in the triple jump. It was
Cabey's first provisional bid since joining the team.
"Our 4x400-meter relay team did a great job of holding
their own. I was also pleased with our weight throwers and
mile runners," UF women's coach Tom Jones said. "We need
to get mentally tougher. Our team still has a long way to go,
but we should be a very good team by the end of the year."

'Bama defeats UF
after poll shakeup
* MEN'S TENNIS FINISHES COMPETITION EARLY
AT SEC INDOOR CHAMPIONSHIPS
The Gators entered Friday's match with a different ranking
than they started the week with after a change in the tracking
of the NCAA women's gymnastics rankings.
Rather than relying on polls and the previous meet's scores
like many other collegiate sports, the National Association of
Collegiate Gymnastics Coaches/Women voted to change the
system last year, effective this season.
The new system bases a team's rankings for the first seven
weeks of the season on its average score. After week seven,
the rankings switch back to regional qualifying scores, which
are based on a team's six best regular-season and all-around
So the Gators prepared for what they thought was a No. 1
vs. No. 2 showdown, but marched onto the floor with a much
less-trumpeted No. 8 ranking against No. 4 Alabama.
UF coach Rhonda Faehn, however, has constantly stressed'
to ignore rankings and scores altogether this season, so there
was no change in the Gators' plan.
With both teams still in the top 10, the Gators turned in a
solid effort Friday night in Tuscaloosa, Ala., but couldn't come
out with a victory against Alabama;
The Tide pulled away from the Gators during the first three
rotations, then held its position after closing with the more
comfortable floor routine, winning 195.775-194.625,
The Gators had to count their first falls of the season, one
on the uneven bars, the other on the balance beam. The Gators
scored a 9.800 or greater 10 times between the four events,
Freshman Corey Hartung was the only gymnast participat-
ing in the all-around, winning the title with a score of 38.575.
The Gators (4-1, 0-1 Southeastern Conference) face No.
1 Georgia (3-0, 1-0 SEC) Friday at the Stephen C. O'Connell
Center in Gainesville.
SGeorgia, ranked No. 1 in a preseason coaches' poll, has
'found itself at the top of the rankings again after the implemen-
tation of the new ranking system.
MEN'STENNIS FINISHES SEC INDOOR: The UFmen's tennis team

Indoor Tennis Championships in Lexington, Ky., on Sunday
Due to travel conflicts, sophomore Nestor Briceno will not play
Monday's final against Auburn's Alex Schweizer.
Briceno advanced to the finals despite playing just one
match Sunday, the consolation quarterfinals. After defeating
Auburn's Pawel Dilaj 7-6 (2), 6-4, he moved on to the finals
after Mississippi's Bram ten Berge withdrew due to injury.
Briceno defeated Louisiana State's Mark Growcott 2-6, 6-1,
6-0 on Saturday in the consolation second round, UF's only
singles win of the day. Junior All-American Janne Holmia and
senior Ryan Sherry both fell out of the tournament on Saturday.
Holmia ran into No. 1 seed John Isner of Georgia and fell 6-
3, 2-6, 6-4. Sherry took on the No. 2 seed, Georgia's Strahinja
Bobusic, and lost 6-0, 6-1.

Carolyn Peck was all smiles
when talking about her team on

That's because the Gators de-

Hours after stuffing Peck's
office with 200 balloons, a tiara
and a sash and spray-paint-

"Carolyn Peck, forty and fine,"
the UF women's basketball team
presented the fourth-year coach

"In the locker room, we just
talked about what we could take
advantage of," Peck said. "We
were sliding into the spots and
matching up with Vanderbilt's
defense, and we wanted to do a
better job cutting into holes."
In the first 2 minutes, 11 sec-
onds, guards Danielle Santos and
Sha Brooks hit two shots each,
putting UF in front 35-34.
Brooks, the team's third-highest
scorer, had not made a basket in
the last two games, going 0 for 16
from the field until making a layup
33 seconds into the second half.
"Offensively, she's carried
us for a number of games, and I
think she was feeling that pres-

the rest of her team being able to
step up, just for her to be able to
contribute what she can and to
get going early, I think was good

felt like this in a game]," Dye
said. "I think all of us as a team

Ole Miss. We had good, open
shots; they just weren't falling. I

"[Dye]'s ability to shoot the
three as well as Marshae working
inside and being able to power
up and get herself to the free-
throw line I think really helped
the momentum to swing our way
in the second half," Peck said.
UF picked up its second
win over a top-25 team and
moved into fourth place in the
SEC standings. A road contest
at third-place Arkansas looms
"I think it's a confidence
booster for our team," Peck said.
"The thing that we don't want to
do is get too high off one win and
lose sight of we still have plenty
more games to play."

Brewer's injury status uncertain
* SOPHOMORE FORWARD
INJURES ANKLE IN FIRST HALF
By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. Playing
back in his home state, Corey
Brewer was giving every indication
that it was going to be his night.
He dunked emphatically off the
game's opening tip and scored 10 of
the Gators' first 14 points, presum-
ably setting the stage for a shootout
with Tennessee's Chris Lofton, who
eventually poured in 29 points.
But with 9 minutes, 34 seconds
remaining in the first half, Brewer
went up for a rebound on the defen-
sive end and came down flailing and
clutching at his right ankle.
The forward managed to squirm
back to the UF bench, but at the
time, his return seemed improbable.
"I really never anticipated
[Brewer] coming back in the game,"
UF coach Billy Donovan said. "Duke

C orey Brewer collapsed, and UF's heart sank with him
to the floor.
Brewer clutched at his right ankle, his fingers caress-
ing the foot at the altar of his team's success.
Brewer shrieked of pain midway through the first half, the
Gators feeling his pangs from one end of the bench to another.
He hopped off the floor one-legged, and at that point, the
stakes were clear: the Gators would
have to dodge and hopscotch around
4.i Tennessee to win. The problem was that
college basketball teams aren't built for
