New MVP Party: athletes dominate ballot
* 'MOST VALUABLE PARTY' INCLUDES
UF SPORTS STARS.

If a newly formed Student Government
party is successful, Gators football stars
Brandon Siler and Tim Tebow could be
dominating more than the football field
Team: Most Valuable Party, an,SG party
registered by Ryan Sherry, is planning to
run in this Spring's election with a slate
that, so far, is half athletes. .
"We're going to win. We're the athletes.
People are going to vote for us," Sherry

bid for Student Body president taking

Students destroy stereotypes

SAlligator Contributing Writer
S ."" Stereotypes such as "kike,"
"slut" and "nerd" all came crashing
down Friday when students gath-

UF President Bernie Machen
A spoke at the dosing ceremony of
S-, the fourth annual Writing on the
Wall Project, where he described
the 40-foot-long and 9-foot-high
wall made of cinder blocks painted
withhurtful words and slogans as a
"'N different type of wall.
Several hundred students and
faculty gathered at the dosing
ceremony to face the inner walls of
hate and to "tear down this damn
wall," Machen said.
"The point of this project is
to start conversation and remind
r people what they do to each other
intentionally and unlintentionally,"
A second speaker, UF student
Ivana Black, spoke about how
stereotypes are passed down from
Sgenerations-and from the media.
"We construct them, and only
we can destroy them," Black said.
Vikram Rangala, the third and fi-
nal speaker at the dosing ceremony,
has spoken at this event for the past

"I really believe in the wall's

creativity of the project."
Rangala spoke about nonviolent
resistance and the use of love as a

Delta Chi returns
after long hiatus
By KYLIE CRAIG
Delta Chi Fraternity returns to UF's campus this week after
a nearly seven-year hiatus.
The fraternity's international headquarters removed UF's
chapter from campus in Fall 2001 after a scandal where fra-
ternity members were accused of soliciting a prostitute at an
The incident was videotaped and the woman accused a
fraternity member of rape. The University Police Department
later charged the woman with filing a false report.
UF suspended Delta Chi's chapter from 1999 to 2001 after it
was charged with violating seven student conduct codes.
The fraternity has completed its sanctions and is
Greek working with the Office of Fraternity and Sorority
Lie Affairs to start up its chapter on campus through
recruitment this week, Director of Fraternity and
Sorority Affairs Chris Bullins wrote in an e-mail last week.
"Most students on campus now were not here at the time
the chapter left, so I am not sure those incidents will reflect in
any way," he wrote.
Rusty Williams, the leadership consultant for Delta Chi,
will head recruitment for the chapter, along with Director of
Expansion Reed Davis and Justin Roberts. The fraternity is
based in Iowa City, Iowa.
Williams said he waited until Interfratemity Council re-
cruitment week finished before starting things at UE
"Delta Chi believes informal recruitment is the best way to
recruit members," Williams said. "We take the time to actually
get to know the person."
The success of Delta Chi will depend on their preparation,
"Groups I have seen succeed started weeks in advance
by getting their name out via campus newspapers and other
forms of advertisements," Bullins wrote. "Delta Chi has been

Students to vote on UF policies during SG elections
* ONE INITIATIVE AIMS TO ALLOW
ONLINE VOTING OFF CAMPUS.
By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
UF's alcohol policy and Student
Government online voting you decide.
Two questions could appear on the ballot
for this Spring's SG election. One, a referen-
dum, would allow students to weigh in on
UF's alcohol policies. The other, an initiative,
would give voters a say in the future of online
Referendums simply declare the opinion
of the student body regarding a certain issue.
Initiatives, if approved, have the ability to be-
come SG law.
Both measures will be evaluated by the SG
Supreme Court before moving to the ballot.
Fall Student Senate candidate Amanda
Kane introduced the alcohol referendum.
It reads: "Do you approve of UF President
Bernie Machen's official alcohol policy on
campus and the Gainesville community?"
Since arriving at UF two years ago, Machen
has made a series of moves to reduce binge
drinking at UF, including prohibiting alcohol
sponsorship for any event held at the Stephen
C. O'Connell Center and joining the national
Campaign for Alcohol-Free Sports TV, a coali-
tion of about 200 colleges pledging to break
the connection between sports and alcohol.
Kane said she wrote the referendum be-
cause the Senate does not represent the opin-
ion of the students, and she wanted to give
them an opportunity to speak.
"The voice of the students should tell the
(Student) Government and (UF's) administra-
tion what they think," she said, adding that
those two entities were created to serve the
students, "not the other way around."
Kane's petition has been signed by about
520 people. To appear on the ballot, referen-
dums need signatures from 1 percent of the
student body, or roughly 480 students.
By introducing the referendum, Kane said
she was not taking a stand on alcohol policies,
but merely trying to get people talking.
Student Body treasurer candidate Susan
Henriques introduced the initiative to imple-
ment Internet online vot-
St ent ing in next Fall's elections.
Government So far, Henriques has
collected about 1,226
student signatures. SG
statutes require signatures of 2 percent of the
student body for initiatives to be on the ballot,
or roughly 1,000 students.
This form of voting would allow students
to elect their leaders from any computer con-
nected to the Internet. The students would
need their GatorLink usemame and password
,in order to vote.
Last Spring, the Impact and Progress par-
ties tried to put a similar initiative on the ballot
but were denied by the SG Supreme Court.
According to the Court, the main reason
for the denial was ambiguous language that
made it unclear whether it was an initiative or
a referendum. However, the word "initiative"
was in the proposal.
Under the current system, the supervisor
of elections can select one of three ways for
students to cast a ballot: paper ballots, elec-
tronic voting and on-campus intranet voting
- none of which allow students to vote from
home. Intranet voting, which allows students
to vote at designated computers on campus,
debuted with widespread glitches during the
"We have already done it with Intranett
voting]," Henriques said. "Now that we have
that step, it's time for the next."
The Spring election will be held Feb. 28 and

Student Senate President John Boyles announces his candidacy in the Spring 2006 elec-
tion for Student Body president on the Reitz Union Colonnade on Friday afternoon.
By LYNDSEY LEWIS
John Boyles became the first candidate to
launch his campaign for Student Body presi-
dent at an outdoor rally Friday afternoon.
Boyles, the president of Student Senate,
said he was reluctant to run but could not
miss the opportunity to do so.
"I was that student who walked around
campus during election time and said,
'Don't give me a flyer,'" Boyles said in an
Boyles, 21, who is running under the
banner of the newly formed Swamp Party,
listed fiscal responsibility as one of the most
important items on his party's agenda.
Elected SG officials control more than $11
million of student money.
"Our fees pay for countless amenities on
campus, and students deserve the best bang
for their buck," Boyles told a crowd of en-
thusiastic supporters gathered on the Reitz
Other priorities on the Swamp platform
include ensuring students have a voice in
the UF administration and local affairs, as
well as making SG more accessible to all
students themes the Gator Party stressed
in its successful bid last Spring.
Boyles said he felt Student Body President
Joe Goldberg's Gator Party administration
has not succeeded in uniting students.
"I don't think the Gator Party necessarily
embodies everything I believe in," he said.
Boyles, the senator from the College of
Fine Arts, won his seat last Spring with the
Boyles added that he hopes to continue
working toward several goals initially set
forth by the
Student Government Gator Party,
such as fight-
ing for better
Swamp spokesman Josh Weiss said his
organization is not a revival of any past SG
parties, but a majority of Gator Party leaders
were at the rally, including Goldberg.
Weiss said Boyles is the most qualified
candidate to carry out Swamp's goals.
Boyles was first elected to Senate in
Spring 2004 with the Access Party.
Now that he is a candidate for SG's high-
est office, Boyles said he will seek sugges-
tions from students about how to make UF
a better place.
"I want to know what they want to see
happen," he said.

Unite Party names new SG presidential candidate
jallllnncu ,Vainrsr/ MIIIdLUr
Jared Hernandez talks with Jeremiah Blanchard, 25, and Chris Eklund, 26, about the
increasing graduate student turnout. Hernandez announced his candidacy for Student
Body president under the Unite Party on Sunday night.
By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
The newly formed Unite Party picked
Jared Hemandez as its Student Body presi-
dential candidate Sunday night.
"I want you all to join me in this cam-
paign," Hemandez said at the kickoff event.
"Join me in this cause. Join me in this move-
ment to unite the University of Florida and
make history together."
Elected Student Government officials con-
trol more than $11 million of student money.
Hemandez, 25, represents the law school in
the Student Senate.
Unite party leader and former Student
Body vice presidential candidate Adam
Roberts said the party will spend student
money in an innovative way: It will push for
Internet voting in SG elections and continue
to bring all students into SG, "not just major
Unite has the support of members of
various parties, including Impact, Gator and
Progress, Roberts added.
Though Unite is still working on its plat-
form, Roberts said it probably would include
the Impact message: "Your money. Your vote.
Your Student Government."
About 100 supporters attended the rally,
which was held at the Levin College of Law.
"Serious issues deserve serious people,"
Hemandez said in an interview after the rally.
At last week's Senate meeting, Hernandez
resigned from both the Judiciary and the Rules
& Ethics committees and declared himself in-
dependent of the ruling Gator Party.

who attended the event, said her organiza-

members of her organization may do so.
"Leaders support whomever they want
to support," she said before the event.
HSA President Jessica Klahr concurred
with Chiu's comments and emphasized that
HSA is not a political organization.
"Not in any way, shape or form do we
tell the students who to vote for," Klahr said,

Eatery evicted to pave
way for development
On Friday night, Maui Teriyaki closed its doors for
the last time.
The local eatery, home of the $5 chicken bowl,
was evicted by their new landlord, University Corers.
University Corers is a new development project that
aims to rebuild the area around University Avenue and
13th Street, just north of campus.
But before they can build, they have to clear the area
out. To toss out Maui, University Corners had to termi-
nate the remainder of the local business's lease, leaving
University Corners in violation of the contract.
To recompense, the developers offered to pay Maui the
eatery's average yearly profit each year until 2017.
But Maui wasn't having it.
Now they're going to court.
"We've got a long way to go because we have to sue for
damages now," said Maui's owner, Steve Marzke. "They
can evict us at any time, but they are breaking the lease
and have to pay."
In our humble opinion, Marzke should've taken the
money and run. Being paid not to work is generally a
pretty good arrangement.
But Maui's struggle emphasizes the local problems that
have arisen due to the University Corers development.
It will be disruptive.
It will be expensive.
And the only reason University Corers has the money
to pay businesses off is that the city of Gainesville afforded
them a huge tax credit.
The city's tax-incentive package has a value of nearly
$34 million spread across 26 years. The money will come
from the taxes generated by the complex; 10 percent of the
new taxes will go to the city, but the rest will go right back
to University Corers.
The result is a 90-percent tax credit for a quarter cen-
That's an unbelievable deal.
It also shifts the tax burden for the project to the rest of
The development will undoubtedly generate more traf-
fic and require more services than the current combination
of businesses. If 10 percent of University Corers revenue
isn't enough to cover all of the city's new expenses, other
taxpayers will be left holding the bag.
SAnd the complex isn't supposed to be completed for
another seven years. Whole classes of UF students will
have to do without the services of the local businesses
once located at the corner.
Even when it's built, we think the development will be
too expensive for poor, destitute college students to take
advantage of. Businesses like Maui provided food and ser-
vices to students on the cheap. Most were probably more
concerned with stretching out a dollar than experiencing
Supplanted businesses like Maui will be replaced with
expensive retailers, $850,000 condominiums and million-
Sure, wealthy alums will have a place to stay during
football season. But University Corners will have a tough
time earning the support of students who have to get by
on a budget.
Will the project succeed?
We don't know.
But if developers have to rely on a tax credit just to
build the damn thing, then maybe private investors have

Hamas success could escalate conflict
he Palestinians have a right to free and fair elections,
and they have exercised it. But let's be honest.
They screwed up.
President Bush has to be more than a little irked about
Hamas' success in the Palestinian parliamentary elections.
He has always said democracy was the answer to the world's
problems, but now democracy may escalate the Arab-Israeli
drama into an all-out war.
Hamas has historically played the part of underdog in
Palestine and refused to recognize the Palestinian Authority.
But now the PA and Hamas have merged, and a rocket attack
into Gaza can be seen as a governmental act of war.
Israel can then retaliate with little international scrutiny.
The nation is no longer dealing with a party that claims it
I suspect the world was somewhat disillusioned with the
Palestinian cause last week.
International aid is going to be cut for the Palestinians,
and Israel's decades-old argument that Palestinians gener-
ally do not want peace suddenly looks undeniable.
There are many commentators who believe Hamas' new-
found responsibility will force them to moderate their views,
drop terrorism and go legitimate.
Hamas's leaders will be too busy kissing babies to plan
suicide attacks. And if you believe that, I've got some
oceanfront property in Iraq to sell you.
There are many positive possibilities behind the re-
sults, though. The facade of compromise and peace that
characterized the old days of Yasser Arafat's leadership is
now truly gone.
The Israelis and the Arabs can now tackle their differ-
ences head on, and, after decades of little progress, maybe
something will give. But Hamas' victory has spooked
Taking Up Arms
Americans and Europeans alike.
The scariest part of this ordeal
is the message this election sends:
Democracy doesn't always work.
Terrorism thrives in coun-
tries with free elections, like the
Philippines and Colombia. And
bad decisions at the ballot box
firstname.lastname@example.org have put some awful people in
power, like in Venezuela and Iran.
In Palestine, the ruling Fatah
party was also riddled with corruption. But no matter
what the circumstances, it's disheartening to watch bad
guys win the legal way. For President Bush and those who
see democracy as the rosy cure-all for the world's prob-
lems, the Palestinian elections present a dilemma.
America's empire is based on the spread of liberty, but
every abuse of that liberty jeopardizes our efforts in Iraq,
Afghanistan and elsewhere. What happens when, instead
of eradicating terrorism, democracy actually facilitates it?
Hamas' success should remind us of how far America still
needs to go to unravel the complicated history of the Middle
East. It also suggests the flexible ethos that we must exercise
when tackling an enemy frequently hailed as heroes.
Freedom is not an end unto itself, and America must
be versatile enough to avoid giving terrorists the kind of
political leverage the Fatah party gave Hamas.
The next year of the Arab-Israeli conflict promises to be
an interesting one. America should be taking notes because
the same event could be repeated in Iraq, Afghanistan or
another one of our empire's corners.

Attorney says Braddy will accept DUI consequences
* THE COMMISSIONER IS
TROUBLED BY HIS ACTIONS.
By JESSICA RIFFEL
While Ed Braddy could serve
six months in jail for a recent DUI
arrest, the city commissioner's at-

steps to resolve the "issues" be-

Braddy's attorney, Gloria

an alcohol treatment facility, but
she said Braddy has "recognized
that there are issues, and he's taken
the appropriate action."

He could also remain on probation

"He takes full responsibility for

Braddy was driving alone when
he hit the Rev. Timothy Keyes' ve-

Identity theft, copyright enforcement and

One of the event's guests who will speak
Saturday is former Wired News journalist Kim

The conference is a product of the Center

Swipe card keys shut out old locks at Campus Lodge
Swipe card keys shut out old locks at Campus Lodge
* THE CARDS CAN BE REPROGRAMMED EVERY
TIME A RESIDENT LEAVES.
By MARIA LAVERGHETTA
Alligator Contributing Writer
A new lock system has some Campus Lodge residents
wondering where they live.
"We don't live in an apartment complex we live in a
hotel," said resident Jordan Fishfeld.
Campus Lodge's new slide card system for the 360 doors
in the complex including the front gate, gym, computer
lab, pool and game room replaced the old-fashioned key
Because the door locks automatically when closed; the
locks improve safety for the residents, said Joshua Johnson,
community director at Campus Lodge.
"Even if I'm taking out the trash, I lock the door. So for
me, it's great," Johnson said.
Jason Treiber, a resident, doesn't think the new doors
will help with keeping residents safe.
"If they are so concerned with safety, why don't they
install new alarm systems?" Treiber said.
Not only do the safety issues irk residents, Fishfeld and
others said the slide card system ruins the social aspects of
"Are you going to have to have a dude at the door when-
you have parties?" Fishfeld said. "I mean, if you want to
lock the cops out, you can do it more effectively."
Johnson said the automatic locks help those who forget
to lock their doors, as well as those who lose keys easily.
The new system will also stop residents from making du-
plicate keys for their friends, since only four
tent slide cards, excluding maintenance, will open
Residents will be forgiven for losing their
card twice, but beyond that, replacement cards will cost
Also, because the slide cards are magnetic, they can be
reprogrammed each time a resident leaves.
Johnson said his main concern is with the cards de-
magnetizing due to wear and causing problems for the
"I've been carrying one of these keys for two weeks now
and purposely abusing it to test the limits of how durable,
they really are," Johnson said.
Kevin Clarke, general manager of The Estates apart-'
ments of Gainesville, said the slide cards are a great invest-
Clarke worked at a hotel in Philadelphia that used the
slide card system, which he said cost about $84,000.
The software is the most important investment with the
system, as well as the hardest part to maintain, Clarke said.
"It can give you a ton of headaches. But, the good thing
is it is such a cool system," he said.
The Estates changes its 1,400 locks in August of each year
and has considered upgrading to the slide card system, but
doesn't feel it is needed at this point, Clarke said.
"We are pretty secure with our system," he said.
Clarke also added that the slide card system is much
cheaper and easier for the landlord in the long run. Lost
keys are not a problem anymore, and rekeying is much
easier to do with the slide card system, he said.
"I would love to have it here, but the saving money thing
is more geared toward the landlord," Clarke said.
Even though the new slide keys look different, they
serve the same purpose as the old-fashioned key system,
which is just as safe, Clarke said.

Brides plan wedding, grooms play poker at Bridal Expo
By KATIE BURNS
Alligator Contributing Writer
Gainesville's fourth Florida
Bridal Expo took place Sunday
afternoon at the UF Hilton Hotel
and Conference Center, providing
future brides and grooms a variety
of information, contacts and options
for their upcoming nuptials.
Hundreds of visitors wandered
by tables offering everything from
photography to honeymoons to
spa services. Department stores
exhibited china settings and registry
materials while caterers encouraged
sampling of their chocolates and
Laura Salazar, director of cater-
ing for the Hilton, said the Florida
Bridal Expo is the best show she
has seen in her eight years of expe-
rience. She said the Hilton, which
hosts a wedding about every other
weekend, enjoys working with the
vendors to put on the event.
"We're all partners in the wed-
ding community," she said. "[The
couples] are absolutely happy with

Salazar said, noting that the Bananas
Foster sample booth was one of the
biggest hits with Sunday's patrons.

Magazine sponsored the exposition.
Greg Sessions, the magazine's
general manager and publisher, said
although most visitors are happy
and excited, occasionally attendees
are overcome by emotions.
"Weddings solicit emotions
anyway," he said. "Youll find
some [brides] a little frantic; even
their mothers. You look at them the
wrong way and you're in a little bit
Sessions also pointed out that
while many wedding events cater
primarily to women, the Florida
Bridal Expo includes the grooms as
much as possible with things like
poker tables and a variety of foods.
"These poor guys get dragged to
these places," he laughed. "You can
see the look on their faces. We keep
Sunday's show was the first
in several years to be held at the

Humphrey's re-emergence came at a critical time,
as Corey Brewer only played 17 minutes and didn't
start for the first time in his career.
After begging UF coach Billy Donovan to play
him against South Carolina, Brewer went to Donovan
Saturday morning and told him he would be better
utilized off the bench.
"I don't know how many sophomores in college
would come in and say that when he breaks a string
of a lot of starts," Donovan said. "I'm hopeful we can
get him back 100 percent.

Editor's Note: Beginning with the start of the SEC season, the alligatorSports staff will
vote on the top three UF basketball performances of the week each Monday. The No. 1
player will receive 5 points, No. 2 player 3 points and No. 3 player 1 point. At the end of
the season, the player with the most combined points will earn the title of alligatorSports

UF women suffer worst defeat in nearly 3 years
* GEORGIA RUNS AWAY IN A
BY NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
UF coach Carolyn Peck wanted
to burn the game tape.
Then she thought better of it.
Peck, whose first three words
of her postgame press conference
were "that was awful," watched the
No. 24 UF women's basketball team
lose 92-55 to No. 15 Georgia at the
O'Connell Center on Sunday.
"We might watch [the game
tape] two or three times before we
bur it tomorrow," Peck said. "But
after tomorrow is over, we're not go-
ing to bur it because we can keep it
on the shelf where we can look at it,
and it can be a reminder of what we
don't want tq do."
UF (15-5, 3-4 Southeastern
Conference) committed 25 turn-
overs, including 16 in the first half
when guard Danielle Santos, who
led the team with 17 points, had six
"We were probably their lead-
ing assist person for them today
with our turnovers
leading into their
Women's points," Peck said.
E>w' Georgia forward
scored a game-high
30 points and added 10 rebounds
and six steals.
"Tonight sucks, and it was aw-
ful," said guard Sarah Lowe, who
committed five turnovers. "Sorry,
I'm just going to be honest. But at
the same time it's been worse for

CLASS OF CONTROVERSY
UF's No. 1 rank in recruiting polls sparks debate
By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
Days before National Signing Day ap-
proaches, Scout.com subscribers flock to the
Gators' forums, posting messages like: "This is
still the best recruiting class I can remember,"
"Amazing" and "Where is the signing day
party? I'll be in the mood to have a few!"
On Wednesday, the nation's top high
school talents will officially end the grueling
recruiting process'by signing letters of intent
to the colleges of their choice.
Since most recruiting experts list UF's
class as the best in the nation, an ever-grow-
ing legion of fans following recruits' every
moves will break out the champagne and
treat signing day like the national champion-
But are the parties a bit premature? And
more importantly, is it even possible to
call a school's class No. 1? Not if you ask

Few writers know more about the busi-
ness of recruiting than Wallace, who gave up
a career in law to start SuperPrep magazine
If forced to rank a school No.l, Wallace
said he would follow the trend and select
UF But he admits it's extremely difficult to
determine if one school's recruits outweigh
"It's all about where you put your em-
phasis, how much do you put on players and
who are your sources?" he said. "You've got
to think about how you're going to compare
classes. What's the total number of players in
each team's class? How is the player going to
satisfy the team's needs?"

However, quantity often .translates into
quality in the rankings.

connected to college football and talking
to high school coaches usually a flawed
system since high school coaches almost al-
ways hype their players in hopes of landing
a scholarship. Its basically the same system
From there a player receives a ranking on
a scale from 1 to 100 in terms of overall and
positional standing and is ranked from 1 to 5
on a star system the players with the most
potential receive five stars.
But if you rank the teams purely by indi-
vidual talent, then Southern California, not
UF, blows away the competition.
The average Trojans commit received 4.44
stars while the Gators commits second best
in the nation on that system average a 3.89.
However, USC- is penalized because of
receiving just 16 commits 28 players have
committed to UF.
Also, 12 of USC's 18 commits are ranked
in Scout.com's Top 100 while just eight of
UF's 27 commits make that list.
"Some say the rankings are as complex as
the BCS," said Jeremy Crabtree, Rivals.com
national recruiting analyst. "We pride our-
selves trying to tweak it each year and trying
to develop it. The best way is sum up all the
parts. Both quality and good quantity will
score the nation's No. 1 class. You can still

ments in a] class... but all the kids in the class

But to Wallace, there are other issues that

Jim Barrie, an offensive lineman from
Tampa and UF commit, believes serious
ethical issues exist in the recruiting business.
Since college coaches put stock into recruiting
analysis, a couple of unfavorable reviews can
plague a recruit's entire career.
"It almost seems like [recruiting writ-
ers] can twist the story a little bit toward the
schools [they favor], and that happens a lot,"
he said. "It actually can kind of hurt a recruit.
"There are definitely facts in there, but
there are definitely, to go along with that, a
whole lot of rumors."

But each year, fans grow more intrigued
by recruiting analysis, and it's grown into a
multimillion-dollar business. On Scout.com's
UF fan Web site, Gatorcountry.com, more
than 100 people chat live at noon on a work-
day. Thousands of messages fill the servers
each day. In the end, it's really a crapshoot.
"It's impossible to predict how [recruits]

The biggest downside to Pierre-
Louis' game is simply experience. A
native of Haiti, he has only played
football for three years, Metzger
S"I think because of Florida's
schemes of man-to-man, that helps
him out tremendously because it's
a situation where it takes a pretty
tough physical toll on you. But from
a mental standpoint, it is not as tax-
ing because you know what you
have to do. You've got to cover the

UF's other visitor could not re-
main so inconspicuous. For Andre
Smith, the best offensive lineman in
the country according to Scout.com,
it took only a few minutes for UF
fans to discover the presence of

Saturday's men's basketball game.
Early in the first half, Gators fans
chanted, "We want Andre," until
Smith stood and acknowledged the
Smith, who didn't decide to visit
Gainesville until early last week,
may be the biggest mystery of the
recruiting season, as he has shown
an unwillingness to narrow down
his list of schools.
"I know he would have to be
very interested [in the Gators] to
take a visit," said Curtis Coleman,
who coached Smith at Birmingham
(Ala.) Huffman High. "We will
probably sit down tomorrow and
make a decision."

Horford helps UF sink Vandy
By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
In UF's 68-62 loss at South Carolina
on Wednesday, Al Horford was close
to invisible, scoring just 6 points and
grabbing four rebounds in a perfor-
mance where the players admitted
that they didn't come into the game
with the right mindset.
But with an 18-game home winning
streak on the line, Horford responded
in a huge way, scoring 16 points and
grabbing 16 boards as the Gators

4% 'to tell Al what to do," said forward

a team, we didn't come ready to play

played like a warrior."

Aside from winning the Class 4A state title in
both the long jump and triple jump, Pierre-Louis

his 4.3 speed, to go the distance at'anytime. He has
tremendous cover skills, and he is really learning
