rivalry in win

Alligator Staff Writer
They were nuts or maybe loyal or
Roughly 1,000 fans braved the
biting rain and plummeting tempera-
tures Friday night to see the Gators
host Kentucky on Saturday. It was
an insane asylum, a groundbreaking
crowd or better said both.
An O'Connell Center-record throng
of 12,609 spectators attended what
has become the reignited Battle of the
Blues. It was a football school acting
like a basketball school. And after wit-
nessing it all, who can really be sure it
"Florida will probably always be a
football school, but I think now people
are starting to turn their heads and say,
'OK, the basketball team is starting to
come up,'" said guard Taurean Green
after the Gators won their third con-
secutive game against Kentucky 95-80.
The lines outside the arena formed
early Friday. The first ones were fortu-
nate. They were able to benefit from
some cover. The stragglers, put simply,
ate the rain.
"[Friday,] I remember driving by
the O'Dome, and guys were coming
through with garbage bags so they
could sleep in the rain and watch this
game," forward Joakim Noah said. "I
knew we had to do something special

He felt like he was constantly at the end of his

His sleep schedule was off, he hated his classes

UF professor to head rare, cancer-treating center
* THE CENTER HOPES TO
ACHIEVE A HIGHER CURE RATE.
By DANIELLE TORRENT
Alligator Contributing Writer
The doctor who helped create
an institute to develop an innova-
tive cancer treatment has been ap-
pointed to be its first director.
Dr. Nancy Mendenhall was the
inspiration behind the proton ther-
apy institute, which is scheduled to
open this summer in Jacksonville,
said Dr. Craig Tisher, dean of the
College of Medicine.
One of only three in the country,
the facility will provide the oppor-
tunity for a more accurate way to
"It is really now considered a
cutting-edge therapy in radiation
oncology," Tisher said.
The use of proton beams allows
more control over how far a tumor
can be penetrated, reducing the ex-
posure to normal
UF tissues. Essentially,
Research there are fewer
with normal radiation therapy.
Mendenhall expects the proton
therapy to progress into achieving a
higher cure rate and lower toxicity.
"We will cure more patients and
cause less problems," she said.
The facility was established at
UF's Jacksonville campus because
of its metropolitan, regionally acces-
sible setting. While Mendenhall had
the idea since 1998, its development
took longer than expected.
"I just felt like it was something
I was supposed to do, and the time
was right," Mendenhall said.
With a family in Gainesville,
Mendenhall commutes to the
Jacksonville campus a few days a
week. She will serve as associate
chairwoman of the radiation oncol-
ogy department there.
Mendenhall was chairwoman of
the Gainesville department for 13
years, Tisher said.
"Proton therapy is something
of the next step, in essence,"
Mendenhall said. "I'm honored and
excited to have this opportunity. It's
a big challenge."

More students are taking advantage of on-campus mental health services
MENTAL, from page 1
That's when Davis decided to get help -atUF's Counseling
Center, where he said he found a new perspective.
"I didn't have to constantly be worried about something,"
he said. "You can be completely open. They're just telling you
how it is, and all of a sudden things make more sense."
'College of the overwhelmed'
Evidently, Davis isn't the only one at UF feeling a little anx-
At the Counseling Center, the hours people have come in for
couseling have jumped from 28,000 in 1997-98 to 41,000 in 2004-
05, all without an increase in full-time staff members.
It's the "college of the overwhelmed," said Jaquie Resnick,
director of the center. "Part of this is a national trend that is be-
ing reported everywhere."
Taming the Anxious Mind, the Invincible Black Woman's
Group and the Math Confidence Group are some of the hall-
marks of the center, located in Peabody Hall.
She said some students experience parental stress, money
pressures and, of course, academic anxiety.
"Some people have used a term called helicopter parents,"
she said. "They are very hovering. It differs. For some students
it means that their parents have been very protective; in the ex-
treme, maybe controlling. [Students] haven't dealt with making
their own mistakes and making their own decisions entirely."
Davis said he can relate.
"My mom gets upset when I talk about being gay," he
said. "She really gets upset whenever I talk about school, fun.
Everything was a problem."
Resnik said pressure from parents can lead to stress.
"[At UF], very high expectations can lead to perfectionism
and a.real discrepancy from what you think you ought to be
and who you think you are," she said. "That can lead to a lot of
Davis said he is the first person in his family to attend col-
"You go from being a big fish in a small pond to just another
fish in the sea," he said.
'Everything under the sun'
The UF Counseling Center isn't alone in its growing popu-
larity among students.
Visits to the UF Student Mental Health Services have
increased 189 percent since 2000, climbing from 7,000 to
20,000 visits per year, and visits to psychiatrists have shot
up 291 percent.
Unlike the Counseling Center, Student Mental Health
Services is made up solely of psychiatrists and psycholo-
gists and has the ability to prescribe medicine.
Jackie Ayers, psychologist and director of Student
Mental Health Services, said that trend is consistent with
other universities across the country, which are also seeing
increasing psychopathology among college students.
He said this is due to a decreasing stigma that seeking
mental help is a character weakness, as well as better medi-
cations, which have allowed more .mental health patients
to pursue a degree. Ayers said the lowering of the negative
stigma of mental counseling may be due to the positive
marketing done by pharmaceutical companies in recent
"Students' acceptance is dramatically different" com-
pared to 20 years ago, he said.
Nationally, in 2000, psychiatric visits were nearly double
what they were in 1980, up from 16 million to 29 million,
according to the Centers for Disease Control.
Julie Abrams, a psychologist within Student Mental
Health Services, said she sees "everything under the sun."
About 50 percent of students who visit the facility have
some symptoms of depression, she said, while 25 percent
are experiencing anxiety.
However, Abrams said these are simply emotional re-
sponses to situations and are normal.
One danger of attending a highly competitive univer-
sity like UF, she said; is that some students may "get very
focused at the expense of other aspects of their life" in or-
der to be successful.
But Ayers and his team are struggling to keep up with
"We're suffering pretty bad," he said. "We're meeting
the need as much as we can, but we're having to really
work hard at shifting appointments around to make sure
that we are able to see the students that need to see us."
He said his 24 staff members have to rotate constantly,
and some students who should be seen every week are lim-
ited to once every three.
Jennifer Walker/ Alligator
Brian Davis sought help from UF's Counseling Center
during his bout with depression and frustration.
In November, the UF Fee Committee increased student
fees by 95 cents per credit hour, the maximum allowed.
From that, Avery's facility will receive an increase of 30
cents per credit hour, or about $380,000. The Counseling
Center received a boost of 5 cents per credit hour.
"We needed a lot more to be able to cover our cost to
continue," Ayers said, noting that he may have to freeze
positions, "Times are tight and fee caps are on, so we can't
get the money. We'll make the necessary cuts."

Steve Myers and his son Colton pull into the finish line, winning the
Slowest Tractor Race of the Farm Toy & Tractor Show in Newberry.
Exhaust fumes from the 1940s
and 1950s tractors mixed with
smoke from the charcoal grill as
the Lions Club of Newberry hosted
its biggest fundraiser, bringing
in more than $2,000 from tickets,
rented tables and concessions each
"It's just kind of grown," said
Don Davis, a Lions Club member
who has been involved since the
tractor show's beginning. "To do
anything 14 years after a while
you kind of get it down."
The Lions Club started in
Chicago in 1917 and is now the
largest service organization in the
world, with cubs in almost 200
countries, said Bob Respess, secre-
tary and treasurer of the Newberry
The club is best known for its
work with the blind. At a Lions
convention in 1925, Helen Keller
asked the Lions to be "knights of
the blind in this crusade against
darkness." Since then, they've been
working to provide guide dogs to
the disabled, to give blind children
the opportunity to go camping and
to pay for corneal transplants and
other expensive surgeries.
The old tractors have become a
main attraction, said Davis. Many
come from the farms around
Newberry which raise cattle, hay
and watermelons one of this
town's biggest crops. But many
small farms have been sold to larger
ones, which may account for the 35
old tractors at this year's show.
"Everybody had a tractor in
the '40s," Davis said. "There's not
much farming now. In the '40s and
'50s you had more farmers than you
had people working in the cities."
Steve Myers, 36, is one of those
who left the farm for other things.
He won first place in the Slowest
Tractor-Race with his son Colton,
who's a month short of 2 years
old. Though Myers was "born and
raised on a dairy farm," he now

lives on five acres right down the

"That's the biggest farm I want
now," he said. Myers comes to the
show every year with four or five
old tractors, which he spends all his
spare time fixing up.
Thomas Brookins, 78, sat in one
of his two oversized, hand-carved
rocking chairs, eating his char-
broiled hamburger and chatting
with passersby about the weather.
Brookins, who was a John Deere
dealer for 42 years, found the
chestnut and hemlock chairs in a
hardware store in Ducktown, Tenn.,
while he was on vacation.
"Got a fella, he lived back there in
the mountains and he built 'em for
me," Brookins said.
The morning started off gloomy
and overcast, giving the Lions Club
bake sale a boost in its coffee pro-
ceeds. The club's approximately 35
members baked the goods while
three members sold them.

The skies feared in time for the
show's culmination, the noon trac-

brown tractor to get a jumpstart
from a blue Chevy truck.
As the tractors drove around the
oval bus ramp, one antique stuck
out a 1922 Ford Model T owned
by Rod Hooten.
The 86-year-old Hooten had
made a sign for the back of his
Model T that read, "All you girls that

Despite hire, purpose of
office remains unclear
t's official. UF has found its first director for the new Office
Dedee DeLongpre, the former director of Sustainable
Alachua County, was selected to fill the position Thursday
after a.nationwide search.
Kim Tanzer, chairwoman of UF's Faculty Senate, was over-
"I think she's an excellent choice. She's very good at build-
ing answers among different groups of people," Tanzer said.
But hold on a second.
What exactly is this Office of Sustainability going to do?
Lately, we've been hearing a lot of noise about sustainability
from UF President Bernie Machen and others. But we haven't
heard a lot about what, specifically, sustainability entails.
Last Oct. 26, on Campus Sustainability Day, Machen took
the opportunity to wax poetic.
"We've got to start walking and using [public transporta-
tion]," he said. He proceeded to discuss how UF dims its
lights and keeps the air conditioner at 78 degrees during the
We're all for Machen's ideas to save energy. But we have to
wonder if those goals will be best met by a new, costly bureau-
cracy. Dimming the lights isn't exactly a novel idea.
The Office of Sustainability was created as a result of a
Faculty Senate vote last year. This year, the Provost's of-
fice announced they would host a new Faculty Fellow of
Sustainability position for UF professors.
But we still don't know what these programs will do.
Surely they will be responsible for more than just evaluating
energy usage, right?
DeLongpre's press release wasn't much help in decoding
"For a university or institution like UF, all three spheres of
sustainability must be held in dynamic equilibrium envi-
ronment, social and economic," she said in the release.
The statement couldn't have been more vague.
Sometimes we even wonder if UF officials understand
what sustainability is. Tanzer called the Office of Sustainability
more of a concept than an actual division until DeLongpre's
But at least Tanzer provided some concrete suggestions
about what the office will study. Her ideas office included
examining how the university recycles, how it honors multi-
cultural students and where it buys its lettuce.
But we already have departments to handle those issues.
They are the Physical Plant, Multicultural and Diversity
Affairs in the Dean of Students Office, and Gator Dining
So why the new office?
Occasionally, new UF offices are created not because they
actually do anything, but because they attract potential stu-
dents and faculty. It's part of our never-ending quest to be-
come a Top 10 public research university.
But finding new ways to generate unnecessary paper isn't
a reasonable aspiration.
Maybe we do need an Office of Sustainability.
Right now, there's just no way to tell.
In her press release, DeLongpre said her goal "is to create a
vision for the entire university so everyone understands what
we mean by sustainability."
She'll have her work cut out for her.

Anchor's injury should take a backseat
arly last week, something horrible happened in
Iraq. The incident gripped newspaper headlines
and rocked television networks across the country.
It was discussed on blogs and talk radio. The story
was circulated as far as Taiwan and Azerbaijan.
The incident prompted many commentators to ques-
tion whether the troops in Iraq are making any progress
That's right. The unthinkable happened.
Another journalist was injured in Iraq.
ABC anchor Bob Woodruff and cameraman Doug
Vogt were traveling in a convoy with Iraqi security forces
when they were injured by an improvised explosive de-
The two were evacuated to an Iraqi hospital before
being transferred to Germany and finally Maryland. It
is perhaps a credit to Woodruff's tenacity as a journalist
that this injury happened at all.
But hold on a second. Wasn't all that media coverage
just a little over the top? Or did the media just realize that
people die in war zones?
At least 11 other service men were killed the same
week of Woodruff's accident. But there were no head-
lines or video montages for them.
"It's just a bit frustrating to see something so dra-
matized that happens every day to some 20-year-old
American or worse, to 10 30-year-old Iraqi soldiers
or cops alongside us," an officer stationed in Ba'qubah,
Iraq, wrote in an e-mail to United Press International.
"Some of the stories don't even mention the Iraqi casual-

"The point that is currently being made [is] that press
folks are more important than mere military folks," a
senior military officer told UPI. Bob Woodruff embed-
ded himself in order to give his viewers a better glimpse
of life in Iraq. Now his injury has likely scared reporters
back to their hotel rooms and taken the focus off the very
troops and Iraqis he was trying to report about. Ironically,
Woodruff's wife, Lee, the one person who has a right to
be hysterical, described the situation best.
"We realize that our family is going through soine-
thing that thousands of military families have experi-
enced over the last three years since the war began and
throughout our history," Lee Woodruff said in a state-

story is no more important. He would be the first to insist
that the attention should be focused on the members of
the U.S. military whose heroic actions he has reported on
As long as the media is plagued by timidity, self-im-

ears and the troops will continue to take a back seat to
sensationalism and ego.

Dodge basketball advertising appalling
While watching the men's basketball team
play the University of Kentucky, I found UF's
dancers who wore T-shirts with large
Dodge logos appalling. The dancers sup-
port the university and its athletic programs,
not an automobile corporation.
I am offended, as a graduate of the univer-
sity, to see our dance team whored out in the
name of sponsorship. I ask you, where is the
integrity in that? Is the Athletic Association
in desperate need of financial support? For a
school with so much pride, what was the cost
of selling out?
Heather Helen Mullins
Dancers' attire inappropriate at game
Dodge must have shown UF the" money.
Why else were the Dazzlers clothed in little
more than the Dodge Ram emblem cut from
the free T-shirts distributed to all the fans?
What's next? Cheerleaders spelling out
D-O-D-G-E instead of G-A-T-O-R-S? Billy
Donovan donning a Dodge. Ram necktie?
Maybe Billy's wife, kids and father decked
out in Dodge attire? The band playing Dodge
I've been a Gators basketball fan much
longer than the Dazzlers have even existed. I
know the importance of corporate sponsors,
but enough is enough.
Corporate logos adorn all the big screens;
they are emblazoned along both sidelines.
Can't we at least keep them off our student
performers? Aren't 12,000 fans sporting
Dodge logos on their backs sufficient? Come
Go Gators, and congratulations on an oth-
erwise spectacular basketball game.

Exhibit showcases animals' suffering
I was very moved by the Animal Liberation
exhibit. The suffering endured by animals in
society is inexcusable. Improper stunning in
factory farms results in animals being scalded
and skinned alive. There is no pretense of
pain relief for branding, dehorning and de-
beaking of factory-farmed animals. In the
words of Jeremy Bentham, "The question is
not 'Can they reason?' nor 'Can they talk?' but
rather, 'Can they suffer?'" The exhibit portrays
Bentham's words with pictures and relays that
suffering is wrong to impose on any being.
US invasion of Iraq not worth the cost
Removing a despot isn't as simple as re-_
moving stains from a cocktail dress. If you
don't listen to experts and prepare for an oc-
cupation, it's much harder, too.
Three elections and a constitution won't
mean squat if Iraq falls into a civil war and
is balkanized into three separate religious
After nearly spending $500 billion and
losing more than 2,200 U.S. military lives and
countless Iraqi civilians, was it worth it?
Letter writer Elizabeth Stinson resembles
President Bush and his cronies, who are more
likely to talk about fighting oppression than
actually fighting it.
If it were her butt on the line in an under-
armored vehicle and non-govemment-issued
protective armor, would she clamor to save
the oppressed and nation-build?
Until she and her kind volunteer and let
their actions do the talking, I won't do the
Animals' plight parallels the struggles of oppressed people
lice Walker once said, "The
animals of the world exist
for their own reasons. They
were not made for humans any
more than black people were made
for whites or women for men."
While we rightly look back on
the cruelty of the past with indig-
nation, it is also essential that we
take a stand against contemporary
cruelty. The Animal Liberation-
Project reminds viewers that the
view that accepted child labor de-
nied women the right to vote and.
enslaved countless human beings
is alive and well today.
Today, animals are the victims.
Billions of animals are slaughtered,
experimented on, shot, poisoned,
beaten, chained, drowned and
dissected. This happens routinely
despite scientific evidence and com-
mon sense showing that animals
have the ability to think and to feel
pain, love, joy, terror and other emo-
tions. Despite our ability to choose
alternatives to the use of animals, It
happens because animals are pow-
erless to stop us.
The Animal Liberation Project
carries a message of compassion
and a plea for justice. It encour-
ages people to open their hearts and
minds to the fact that all cruel acts
must be denounced, no matter how
inconvenient or uncomfortable it is
to do so.
Many of the horrors in our soci-
ety's history are linked by the notion
that "might makes right" and by the
exploitation of less powerful groups
But animals also. suffer and feel.
They have physical, social and emo-
tional needs and a compelling inter-
est in leading their own lives. No
matter how different animals seem
from us, the differences are less
Kumar than what all
Speaking Out people and
- the desire to be free from suffer-
ing and exploitation by others.
That is why I became a vegetar-
ian. Once I learned about the treat-
ment of farmed animals today the
imprisonment in filthy spaces, ex-
treme crowding, castration without
painkillers or anesthetics, transpor-
tation by truck without protection
from searing heat and bitter cold,
inept slaughter practices that cause
animals to be butchered while still
conscious I knew that I must stop
participating in this oppressive sys-
tem. I wanted to extend my compas-
sion to those who cannot demand
their own freedom any more than
an 8-year-old child forced to work in
a mine could.
The Animal Liberation Project
has provoked defensiveness on the
part of some, who bristle at having
their own suffering or that of their
ancestors compared to the suffering
of "mere" animals. "How can you
compare the suffering of animals to
what I have endured?" some have
asked, insulted. Yet this attitude
- that animals are lesser beings
whose suffering is inconsequential
- parallels the attitude that enabled
white slave owners to shackle, beat
and abuse blacks.
We have wrongly accepted the
suffering of animals as routinely as
we once accepted slavery, Native
American genocide, child labor and
other heinous crimes until kind
and thoughtful people demanded
Looking back on the cruel treat-
ment of human beings in the past
with indignation is understand-
able. But taking a stand against
contemporary cruelty to animals is
also important and in no way deni-
grates people. Rather, it enlarges the
umbrella of our compassion, help-
ing us to become better at what is
so wonderful about human beings
- our capacity to empathize with
the suffering of others who are dif-
ferent from us and to take steps to
Each one of us can make a dif-
ference by making compassionate
choices. This can be as simple as eat-
ing vegetarian food, buying clothing
not made from-animals or purchas-
ing cruelty-free products. We ask
everyone to open their hearts and
minds to the concept that all torture
should end, regardless of race, age,
religion, gender, sexual orientation,
disability or species.

Dating doctor spills love secrets
By SASHA TALENFELD
Alligator Contributing Writer
Just in time for Valentine's Day, UF
students got love-life advice Friday on
everything from how to build a healthy
relationship to how to deal with a bad
David Coleman, who describes him-
self as "America's real-life Hitch," of-
fered help for dating dilemmas to about
50 students at the Orange & Brew.
Coleman is a dating doctor who
travels around the country speaking
at college, corporate and community
events. He spoke as a part of UF's Gator
Nights, a weekly Friday night event at
the Reitz Union sponsored by Student
Government, the Office of the Provost
and Division of Student Affairs.
"The first two things I tell my audi-
ence are that there's a decent chance I
will offend everyone sitting in the room
at least once because my advice is pretty
straightforward, and sometimes it's
blunt," Coleman.said. in an interview
before the event. "Number two: There's
a decent chance that at least one person
will go home that night and break up a
Coleman said he tries to present his
information in an interactive and fun
way. He calls the audience the stars of
the show and provides everyone with a
worksheet that relates to activities done
throughout the night.
"After seeing this, I'm going to
try to be more outgoing and
clue in a guy that I'm inter-
UF psychology major
"Speakers are not normally brought
to Gator Nights, but he is very dynamic,
the topic is popular and it is dose to
Valentine's Day," said-Farrah Morrone,
associate director for the Office of
Morrone described Coleman as the
real Hitch from the Columbia Pictures
movie "Hitch," about a New York date
doctor who individually counsels men
on hbw to meet women.
Coleman believes that about seven to
eight years ago someone saw his show
and used the idea because the order of
the movie is exactly the order his show
used to be.
"It's crazy," Coleman said. "If we
were to sit down and watch the movie
'Hitch,' I could show you how approxi-
mately 70 percent of what's in that movie
comes from what I do for a living and my
show. The similarities are amazing."
Coleman said he has had many guys
come up to him or-e-mail him after
shows because they have seen the movie
and want him to help them have more
self-confidence with women.
Coleman encourages students to get
involved on campus because he said the
more people you meet, the better chance
you have of meeting someone who may
be special to you.
"After seeing this, I'm going to try to
be more outgoing and cue in a guy that
I'm interested in," said Melissa Lira, a
psychology major at UF.
Coleman said he knows he truly helps
the people who attend his shows.
"There are five days in our lives that
change us, and I think tonight might be
one of those nights for you," he said.

Haitian actors perform history to fund living museum

The group, based in Haiti, plans
to tour the United States for the
next three months to raise funds
through donations for The Memory
Village, a living history museum.
About 50 people attended the play.
"Through understanding our
history, healing can take place
because unless we know where
we came from,'we can't move
forward," said Trudy Harris, who
brought the group to SFCC.

The three actors chronicled the
700 years of history, focusing on
colonization in the Americas and
the Caribbean through pantomime,
dance and music.
"People from any background
can understand it, and they also
try to help the audience begin
to understand the history, not of
the Haitian particularly, not of
the African particularly, but of
all three peoples, so they, too, can
begin the healing and the reconcili-

The group strives to describe
history through multiple per-

effects imperialism has had on
"We get the facts, but we didn't
get really what happened," said
Carla Bluntschli, who plays a
European in the play.
Bluntschli is American-born,
but has chosen to live in Haiti for
the past 20 years.
"I am a white person from
the U.S. because of the slaves my
ancestors have brought over," she
said. "So, that is why I have com-
mitted myself to this."

SCORES HELPED THE

edged out a slim victory, their
first against a Southeastern

UF gymnastics coach
UF freshman Corey Hartung,
who scored a 9.90 on three events
in the Gators' last meet, scored a
9.8 or higher on all four events
Friday, including another season-
and individual-high score of 9.9
on the floor routine.
Junior Chantelle Tousek com-
peted in her first event of the
season Friday, scoring a 9.8 on
the balance beam, tying her col-
legiate best, originally set at the
2004 SEC Championships.
Junior Breanne King hit a
season-high floor routine, earn-
ing a score of 9.825 and tying for
fourth in the event. UF's Nicola
Willis saw less action than usual,
competing in only one event.
Willis needed rest, UF coach
Rhonda Faehn said, and her ab-
sence allowed for Hartung and
King to compete in the all-around
competition, placing second and
"It was wonderful to see they

SComing into the UF men's swim-

against Indian River Community
College on Saturday, senior Ryan
Lochte held 10 UF records. In his last

* OUELLETTE'S 17-MATCH SIN-
GLES WIN STREAK WAS SNAPPED
AGAINST THE BULLS.
By ANTONIO GONZALEZ
The No. 1 UF men's tennis team could
have easily been on the other side of a 6-1 win
against South Florida on Sunday.
But in front of a home crowd, the Gators (5-
0) captured a few tiebreakers and some critical
points en route to a victory against the Bulls
(0-1) at the Ring Tennis Complex.
After sophomore Greg Ouellette and junior
Janne Holmia cruised in their No. 1 doubles
match 8-2, senior Stefan Tell and sophomore
Nestor Briceno dropped their No. 2 doubles
"We have to get a lot better at doubles,"
UF coach Andy Jackson said. "Particularly, we
have to get more aggressive there."
Ouellette's 17-match dual-match win
streak ended Sunday with a loss to USF's Dirk
Britzen (7-6 (4), 6-3).
Britzen used his 6-foot-5 frame to blast
serves past Ouellette, who was never able to
figure out where his serves were headed.
"It's not like the streak ended to a crappy
opponent," Ouellette said. "The guy can play.
And nothing against South Florida, but I'm
surprised a guy of that caliber is playing for a
small school like them."
Senior Vladimir Obradovic dominated
Barragan for a quick win (6-1, 6-3) in No. 2
singles. Sherry, in his usual energetic style,
came out on top in a No. 6 singles match
against Gattiker (6-0, 7-6 (2)).
"We aren't playing anywhere near the
level we should be," Jackson said. "I'd like to
see greater teamwork, improvement in our

middle that would vault UK back into the top 25 with a win

The Gators are officially the face of the SEC. Everyone
was waiting for Kentucky to make its move, but UF remains
the team to beat in the conference.
If the Gators expect to make it back to the Sweet 16 for
the first time since the turn of the century (it's been so long,
I don't know if we're talking 1900 or 2000), they'll have to
win crucial games under the bright lights, and that's exactly
what they did on Saturday.
Unlike in past seasons, when UF peaked in February,
this team still has plenty of room to grow. The only hurdle
is UF's youth teams with four sophomores in the starting
lineup generally fold come March. But these guys are play-
ing with upperclassmen poise.
I keep hearing that the Gators can't hang with the big
boys, but who are the big boys this year? Right now, I'll
take UConn over any team in the nation, but aside from the
Huskies, everyone seems vulnerable. The Gators have their
flaws, and a loss to LSU on Saturday would be a huge disap-
pointment after the Kentucky demolition derby.
But any team featuring four legitimate NBA players can
make a run to the Final Four. Throw in cohesiveness and
unselfishness, and the Gators have the capability to defeat
just about any team in the nation.
And they're already the champions of hugs and kisses.

RIVALRY, from page 1
I've ever had at a game," said 21-year:old UF junior Tom
Evison, always one of the first in line for home games.
For a little more than two hours, Gainesville froze. You
were either at the game, or the game was in your living room
or in your bar. ESPN2 and "College GameDay" made sure
of it. As for the fans they ensured one guest left with
memory he will never forget.
"This 'College Gameday' was by the far the best I've ever
seen in the two years that we've done it," said Digger Phelps,
one of the ESPN college basketball analysts on hand. "It was
unbelievable. They showed the nation how this is one of the
best student bodies in the country. I've never seen a band in-
teract so well with students before."
So excuse Phelps if he mistook the ESPN set for his own
sofa setup. Sporting an ebony Hart Schaffner Marx suit with a
violet polka dot tie and pink shirt accompaniment, Phelps led
the Rowdy Reptile cheers during play stoppage. At one point,
he broke into a Gator chomp. Later, with shades of il Papa,
he began blessing the students. Forgive the man if he sinned
- Phelps has been riling up students since his coaching days
at Notre Dame.
"This 'College Gameday' was by the far the
best I've ever seen in the two years that we've
done it. It was unbelievable. They showed the

interact so well with students before."

"It was too fun to just watch," he said. "They showed that
basketball is for real even at a football school."
Noah welcomed Phelps' cheerleading competition. After
getting fouled on a layup during the first half, he sauntered by
the students, gesturing that he indeed was heading to the free
throw line for a shot, a 3-point play. That, of course, was sand-
wiched between instances of chest pounding and roaring.
"I usually do that against Savannah State, too," Noah
But this was different. UF football coach Urban Meyer was

And it didn't come in a trickle; it came
in the form of an avalanche that barreled
down on the O'Connell Center court,
burying the Wildcats underneath.
The landslide was a game-clinch-
