As Spring Break approaches, Fischer and

play basketball at Southwest's courts.

SG candidates to run solo, without party limitations
Eight will run independently in elections

But Kaufer, an independent
candidate for the Student Senate's
law school seat, has something his
opponents do not have: the power
to set his own agenda.
Of the 99 candidates in this elec-
tion, eight of them are independent
from Swamp or Unite.
Kaufer is one of five independent
Senate candidates competing for
attention and votes in next
week's Student Government elec-
tion. Three more independent candi-
dates are vying for other positions.
"If you want to [run] badly
enough, and you want to get in-
volved in SG, you should take ad-
vantage of the fact that you can run
as an independent," Kaufer said.
"I think the law school senator
should focus on law students and
should be independent of under-
.grad politics," he added.
In his Senate race, Paul Anderson
is the incumbent. Anderson, who
has served as an interim senator for
about two months, is running for the
College of Public Health and Health
Anderson said his time in office
was a window through which he
saw the political process at work.
"I have always tried to be active
in politics," he said.
Anderson said Unite offered to
help him with his campaign because
the party does not have a candidate
running for that seat.
However, Anderson said he sup-
ports issues from both parties.
"That's the best about being an
independent," he said. "I can take
the best of both worlds."

dependent Chris Weeg interviewed

Hansen's sister Dreama, who lives next

human ribs behind her yard.
"Each of the bones that were found were
found in different areas," she said. -"They
looked like bones that belong to a small per-
son, maybe a woman."
However, ASO spokesman Sgt. Keith
Faulk said police would not know the iden-
tity of the skull and other bones until they get
results from the medical examiner's office.
"It's a very old and rural area. We are not
going to rule out any possibilities," Faulk
said. "It's possible that the area was a home-
stead where families used to bury their kin."
Faulk said they would go through missing
persons reports after they get the results from

The gym is geared toward serious athletes

Southwest doesn't compete with other
gyms because it isn't in it for the money,
Clayton said. Southwest seeks to educate stu-
dents on how to work out through programs,
seminars and personal training.
"Students have the options of signing up
on a reservation list for a specific time to en-

Student paper gets no
love in Illinois
In 1973, the Florida Alligator became the Independent
Florida Alligator. That year, then-UF President Stephen
C. O'Connell, of O'Dome fame, booted our fair establish-
ment off campus because of our publication of an abortion
insert. Back then, the staff was furious with O'Connell.
But after a Tecent decision by the U.S. Supreme Court, we
couldn't be happier.
On Tuesday, the court refused to hear the case of the
Innovator, the student newspaper at Governors State
University in Illinois. At issue was whether or not .the pa-
per had to get approval for its stories before taking them to
It seems university officials at Governors State got upset
after the Innovator ran a series of stories critical of the cam-
pus administration. They instructed the paper's printers not
to produce the newspapers without university approval.
Students working at the newspaper sued, but the 7th U.S.
Circuit Court of Appeals struck down their arguments. The
court ruled that because the paper was affiliated with the
university, officials had the right to supervise its production.
And that meant censorship.
Begrudgingly, we have to agree. Legally, schools should
have every right to watch over their affiliated student pa-
And that's why we're so glad that we operate indepen-
dently of UF.
But while administrators at Governors State have the
right to censor the paper, it is a right that should never be ex-
ercised. If university officials can't take a little heat from their
own students, maybe they should re-evaluate their career
decisions. And if they don't want to shed light on university
policies, maybe they should reconsider their actions in the
The objectives of a student newspaper are twofold.
Student papers inform other students about student is-
sues. They also serve as vehicles to educate students about
the journalism profession.
By exercising censorship over the Innovator, Governors
State totally undermines both of these goals.
Students can't truly be informed when all of the infor-
mation published by a paper is first screened by officials to
make sure it isn't critical of the university.
Instead of serving its proper role as a check against the
administration's power, the Innovator will forever be rel-
egated to the status of university propaganda. Readers will
never again be able to trust the newspaper's reporting on the
We also worry about the message the university is send-
ing to its budding young journalists. Officials are, in effect,
telling student journalists to be more concerned with not
criticizing the university than with getting the facts straight.
That's not a good lesson.
It also sets a dangerous precedent for other campus publi-
cations. Attorney Richard Goehler noted, "Word has already
begun to spread that the standard 'hands-off student media'
policies recognized by college officials in the past may no
longer be required."
And that's kind of scary.
Moving off campus and becoming independent isn't
always a viable option for student papers. We shudder to
think about whatcould happen at universities without real

Pharmaceutical companies keep their prices high because

Hence the conundrum. Medicines don't save lives when
people can't afford them. But without patents, life-saving
medicines won't be invented. It's hard to imagine a blanket
solution that continues to promote innovation while treating
the world's ailments.
But the Equitable Access License could do just that. And
it involves you.
That's because universities, including UF, have financial
arrangements with pharmaceutical companies. When a uni-
versity discovers a new medicine, it patents the research and
then licenses it to a single company to develop and sell. In
2004, for example, GlaxoSmithKline gave over $5.5 million
Here's where the EAL comes in. Essentially, it's a template
contract between universities and pharmaceutical compa-
nies, but it allows the patent to be licensed to other generic
drug producers in poorer countries. When there isn't a single
producer licensed to monopolize a medicine, other generic
producers can compete, and prices naturally go down.
The EAL won't impede innovation because it won't af-
feet pharmaceutical giants, which

Universities really do have this power. When humani-

price in that country went down by 95 percent.
Publicly funded universities, including UF, should be

UF President Bernie Machen has said the university

So far, no universities have specifically adopted the EAL.
Meanwhile, UF is attempting to break into the Top 10 rank-
ings. Being the first to adopt the EAL would help us on our

Students will make an important decision
about the future of Student Government on
Feb. 28 and March 1. As a former Student
Body vice president, running back for the
Gators football team and proud alumnus, I
am excited to see Brandon Siler be a part of the
next generation of leaders on this campus.
Brandon has the management skills and
the drive to be the most impressive Student
Body vice president in years. He has innova-
tive ideas for making the Cabinet more rel-
evant and accountable. For those concerned
about his football schedule, I point out the
fact that besides myself, other members of the
Gators football team have successfully served
as vice president and in other various leader-.
ship positions since 1990.
Someone with Brandon's drive, determi-
nation and intelligence will have-no problem
handling both responsibilities.
Running back, San Francisco 49ers
Former Student Body vice president-
Siler not an appropriate choice for VP
I compliment Brandon Siler and his good
intentions. However, as affable as Siler may
be, he simply does not have the time or ex-
perience that it takes to serve as the Student
Body vice president. Working as the vice
president of a 48,000-person student body is
a full-time job, and by any account, Siler w.ll'
not have enough time to give a full effort ,
both Student Government and his football ac-
tivities. Are his many hours per week spent in
the SG office going to take away from football
practice and game preparation? The honest
truth is that something will have to give.
Personally, I would rather our team cap-
tain dedicate his full efforts toward winning
another Southeastern Conference title rather
than splitting his time between both activities
and compromising his job as a Student Body
Student Activities Center misuses funds
As the president of the UF student chapter
of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic
Engineers, I am tired and appalled at the mis-
use and the misappropriation of funds at this
I requested a food scholarship through
the Student Activity Center on the first day
of school this semester for a special event
IEEE sponsored in conjunction with National
Engineers Week. The event-was held Monday,
and after e-mailing the Student Activities
Center several times and not getting a reply,
I finally called them. It turns out that they've
stopped approving all food scholarships for
UF student organizations because the funding
-for this year is all used up.
Keey in mind that this is only February.
The person I talked to, who worked on the
committee for approvals, told me that there
was a misappropriation of funds last year, and
that they are "investigating" the books to see
v'hy the funds approved for this year were
used up last year. She also told rie that the
Student Activities Center has no idea when all
this will be worked out.
This is money that is supposed to help
organizations that don't have money to fund
collegewide events. Why didn't the Student
Activities Center say anything about it? I
feel like its the responsibility of the Student
Activities Center to inform all student orga-
nizations of this problem, but that would be
admitting that they did something wrong,
President, IEEE Student Chapter
U.S. must shut down Guantanamo Bay
Matt Melone believes that the Guantanamo
Bay military base (in Cuba) should be run by
What he left out in Monday's article was
that I am sure he also believes that the
U.S. nonetheless continues to occupy Cuban
land and torture people in it.
Recently, a United Nations report spoke
the truth and explained that the U.S. had been
found to operate torture centers. Presumably,
the inmates are hiding sensitive information
to U.S. national security and if we can just
torture them for the indefinite future, America
will get safer.
Do you support the Universal Declaration
of Human Rights by the United Nations,
Mr. Melone? Do you support the Geneva
Conventions or the U.N. Charter that all mem-
ber states have signed?
Obviously, Melone would like us to con-
demn the United Nations as a collection of
rogue states an4 instead favor the U.S. in
its unilateral war against evil (terrorism).
We should all be pro-security, pro-America
Americans. Right. And Czechoslovakia threat-
ened the security of the German people.
Melone: When your country tortures sus-
pected criminals in Cuba, it does so regardless
of whether or not a few U.N. representatives
boycotted the invitation of the occupiers to
"tour" the prison. We all know that the U.S.
will not allow free access of detainees to U.N.
persons or the media. And that includes CNN,
which knows no more about Guantanamo
than the average American who can get his
At-home campaigning should be off-limits
The end of politics as usual? I don't think
so. This past weekend while I was trying to
study in my apartment in Gainesville Place,
I vwas rudely interrupted by volunteers of the
Unite Party who showed up at my front door
and began campaigning to me. It is one thing
for a political party to campaign on Turlington
Plaza I think that you're fair game when
walking through campus. However, there is
no need to harass me at home.
After witnessing these campaign antics, for
the Unite Party to say that they stand for the
"end of politics as usual" is a joke. Interrupting
me at my home off campus is the most intru-
sive type of campaigning, and it represents the
usual Student Government election stunts.
Unite Party, you just lost a vote.

Conference covers childhood, literature
By KEVIN MAHADEO
The nobon of corrum books being a "children-only"
medmun gets laid to re-t thls \ weekend atUF's academ-
ilall motri ated corruc boo-k conference.
The fourth annual Urun erilty of Florida Conference
on Conuc- will be held tonight through Saturday night
at the Alachua Counts Library and the Reitz Union.
The event is tree and open to the public, and will be
themed Comics and Childhood.
"The issue of childhood is extremely complicated,
the issue of comics is extremely complicated," said
professor Donald Ault, conference creator and faculty
adviser. "And the intersection of the two is extremely,
Acclaimed writer and artist Will Eisner was dis-
cussing the idea of a multiday academic conference
on comics with colleague Thomas Inge, Ault said. A
dream of Eisner's for some time, the two decided to fi-
nally make the conference a reality with the assistance
of Ault, a man known for "making things happen."
This year's conference aims to look at the influence
of comic books, comic strips and manga, which are
Japanese print comics, in relation to various aspects
of childhood, including children's literature, intended
audiences and public perception.
"Comics continue to have a pretty bad [reputa-
tion]," Ault said. "They're often lumped in with TV
and video games."
In noir films and gangster movies, the stereotypi-
cal "idiot sidekick" would always be told to go back
to reading his comic books, Ault said. Comic books
became a "mark of the lowest intelligence." "It's a
shame comics were seen for kids, but not good enough
for kids to read," Ault said. "Then they're not for any-
It is upsetting to Ault and members of the academic
comic community that comic books are considered a
subpar type of literary work, a reputation which de-
emphasizes their narrative complexity.
"I've been introducing them to adults for 30 years,"
Ault said. "It's not that it's not for kids, but the idea
that they're only for kids."
Contrary to popular belief, Ault has observed a
change in recent years toward adults looking at comics
more than children do. Since its opening, the graduate
comics program at UF receives hundreds of applica-
tions from students who wish to study the field.
"People sometimes overlook [comics] because they
have pictures," said Cathlena Martin, president of the
Graduate Comics Organization and coordinator for
the conference. "It's like, 'Oh look, they're suppose to
be funny, ha ha.'"
This year's theme of comics and childhood is extra
important for Martin, who is writing her dissertation
on the changing narrative of children's literature and
culture in a digital age.
"That's why I'm in charge of it this year," Martin
said. "It's kind of my specialty."
The conference will address the false notions about
comics and look into the effect they have on current
literature both children and otherwise, Martin said.
Keynote speakers Molly Bang and Bill Willingham
are both perfect examples of people who provide the
crux between comics and childhood, Martin said. Bang
will be discussing her award-winning children's books
and sharing her views on incorporating the narrative
art of comic books into children's literature.
On the other.hand, Willingham takes the opposite
route and uses childhood ideologies in his comics,
which are often found in the mature section of local
comic book stores.
"He takes themes from childhood and puts them
into a modem New York setting," Martin said, "pro-
viding something that even adults like to read."
While the main topics are based around the idea of
comics and childhood, presentations include speeches
on the works of Carl Barks, the recent influx of manga
on young adults, comics as a narrative for the Bible
and the use of comics in instruction.
The conference kicks off Thursday at 7 p.m. at the
Alachua County Library, where Bang will give one of
her speeches. The conference continues Friday from
8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Reitz Union, and it concludes
back at the Smathers Library on Saturday from 9 a.m.
to 6 p.m.
Ault will give the dosing speech, but he said he
isn't exactly sure what he is going to say.
"I'm supposed to do something from 5 to 6 p.m.,"
Ault said. "We'll see what happens."

"Night Watch" creates audience for Russian film
By KENT RUSSELL
A paunchy, middle-aged man dressed
like a long-haul truck driver stands in
front of a drop-down screen, surveying the
audience's reaction. M&Ms stir trouble,
kangaroos battle penguins for soda, and a
ceramic doll sprouts arachnids' legs and
starts ambling about, all of which is set to

Rather, they understand that they're in
the presence of a man who helped redefine
global cinema's landscape with one film. .
"Of course we're pioneers," he jokes with
deadpan delivery "That's why I'm talking
Vladimir Leschinsky, one of the co-found-
ers of a leading Russian visual effects outfit
called Dr. Picture Studios, headed the team
that created the visual effects for "Night
Watch." The film, released to select American
cities Friday, tore the covers off a slumbering,
movie-going Russian audience almost two
years ago and exemplified the strides that
Hollywood's Slavic cousin is making.
"Night Watch," the first of a fantasy trilogy
based on Sergei Lukyanenko's novels, opened
at about 1,500 movie theatres in Russia and the
surrounding Commonwealth of Independent
States in July 2004. Costing an astronomical
$3.5 million to make, with a $1 million bud-
geted for visual effects, the film earned $16
million and eclipsed "The Lord of the Rings:
The Return of the King" as the highest-gross-
ing film in that market's history.
Prior to "Night Watch," the average box
office return for a film in Russia was $3 mil-
lion, Leschinsky said. "Of course
Galina Rylkova, a
Muscovite and assistant pro-
fessor in the Department of yl
Germanic and Slavic Studies Vladimir
at UF, believes that "Night Dr. Picture Stl
Watch" succeeded in Russia
on several levels.
Ticket prices are extremely
high in Russia, making it difficult for those
with fixed incomes, like the very young or
the very old, to go to theatres, she said. Until
recently, most Russian families invested en-
tertainment dollars in a quality DVD player
and bought films, which cost about as much
as a movie ticket.
Last year, Rylkova went to a Russian
theatre with two relatives, hoping to catch
a film that starred several Russian headlin-
ers and took place in the city she was visit-
ing. When she tried to buy their tickets, the
cashier made an effort to talk her out of it,
arguing that they should spend their rubles

elsewhere. When they eventually got into
the theatre, they were the only three in the
audience, she said.
But that changed with "Night Watch."
"It hit a chord inside the typical Russian
citizen," Rylkova said. "Kids were making
the squeaking noises over it."
Rylkova equated "Night Watch" to the
arrival of McDonald's in Russia. People
weren't lining up for the food, but for the
're pioneers, experience, she said. "Night
Watch" was an event; people
m talking to wanted to be a part of this
U. epic science-fiction story.
eschinsky Whereas films shown in
lios co-founder huge halls to thousands of
viewers in the USSR were
as much. education as they
were entertainment, "Night
Watch" provided escapism uncommon to
many Russian films, she said. '
"The idea that cinema may provide you
with an outlet for seeing something that
could not happen to you made it popular,"
"Night Watch" also had something few
other Russian films did: a marketing blitz.
Moscow was bathed in movie promos,
product placements and billboards leading
up to the film's release.
"When people came to me and said, 'Too
many ads for this movie; it's not polite,' I
told them they were just afraid of something

of "Night Watch," in an interview with The
New York Times.
Marketing films in a country as large ahd
diverse as Russia is difficult, Rylkova said.
With a myriad of political, religious and ethnic
groups strewn throughout the land, finding a
way to reach the audience is near impossible.
Yet therein lays the success of "Night
In a film replete with vampires, shape-
shifters and countless other Halloween
costume ideas battling it out on the streets
of present-day Moscow, members of the
Russian audience were able to project
themselves and their ideals into the char-
acters, Rylkova said. The film wasn't just an
American movie rehash; it demonstrated the
fusion of East and West.
Back in Matherly, Leschinksy exhibits
a clip he created of a bolt shaking loose
from a plane and falling 15,000 feet above
Moscow's blinking nighttime cityscape,
complete with wind distortion and the dull
reflection of moonlight, before it splashes
down in a young woman's coffee mug.

films getting the budgets and attention their
American counterparts do.

if films continue to bring money back," he
says. "After India and the U.S., we are the

A fallen angel, a spider woman and a

Those are just a few of the mythical
characters appearing in "A Very Old
Man With Enormous Wings," a magi-

Mary Hausch produced
and directed the show and
said the mythical aspect of
the story allowed for much creativity and
imagination on stage.
"Working with mythical material
seemed like something that would be a
lot of fun," she said.
The play tells the story of two children
who discover "a very old man with enor-
mous wings" in their backyard, who has
apparently fallen from the sky.
Believing him to be an angel, the chil-
dren give him shelter and protection, and
soon enough the angel becomes the cen-
ter of the town.
"It's a great fantasy piece," said Laura
Rohner, who plays the role of a woman
in the town who has been crying for 10
Rohner is one of seven cast members
who is a UF Master of Fine Arts student,
and she is currently fulfilling an acting
internship at the Hippodrome.
She said the play depicts the adult
characters as children would view them
in order to truly represent the fantasy
aspect of the story.

ever been just'a show for kids.

Gainesville young at heart," she said.
The play will be

rketing director ter thrust stage, a stage
that is literally inches away
from the seats.
A final preview of the
play will be held tonight, with the actual
premiere on Friday at 8:15 p.m. Shows
will continue eight times per week until
Jessica Thompson, director of market-
ing at the Hippodrome, said the perfor-
mance is incredible.
"It's an amazing spectacle," Thompson
said. "There has never been anything like
this done on stage in Gainesville before."

ators manhandle Rattlers for first midweek win
By BRYAN JONES
kfter sweeping three hard-
;ht games against Miami last
kend, the UF baseball team
faced another orange-and-green-
clad opponent Wednesday night.
Unfortunately for Florida A&M,
its resemblance to the Hurricanes'
fashion is about as far as it goes.
.After defeating the Rattlers by
scores of 17-2 and 18-3 last season,
the No. 1 Gators won 15-5 against
FAMU on Wednesday night. With
the win, UF improved to 15-0 all-
time against the Rattlers.
UF starting .pitcher Jarrod

junior Gavin Dickey swings during the fifth inning of the Gators' 15-5 win against Florida A&M at McK-
lan Stadium on Wednesday. Dickey broke an aluminum bat during a previous plate appearance.
Langlois struggled early, surren-
dering hits to the first three batters
he faced. After a leadoff single by
Rattlers left fielder Stanley Gnat,
third baseman Chris Lee drove
him in with a double down the
third-base line. The next batter,
second baseman Corey McFadden,
singled to left field to give FAMU a
The Gators answered with two
runs in the bottom of the inning,
courtesy of a Brian Jeroloman
double off of FAMU starter Blair
Mercer. After a three-up, three-
down inning for Langlois in the top
of the second, the Gators took the
lead for good.
With two outs and the bases
loaded, UF first baseman Matt
LaPorta hit a breaking ball into the
parking lot behind left field for his
third career grarid slam.
"I hit it straight up, and it just
kept going," LaPorta said. "I am
just surprised it went that far."
LaPorta, who tweaked his
oblique muscle earlier this season,
left the game after the third inning.
He will be day-to-day.
The Gators plated two more
in the inning when Gavin Dickey
tripled off the center field wall.
Dickey drove in two more runs
with a single in the fourth, despite
splitting his aluminum bat in half
on the swing, the barrel landing
just short of third base.
"It caught me off-guard," said
Dickey, who had never snapped an
aluminum bat. "It just snapped."
In Langlois' first career start, he
allowed two earned runs on three
hits in two innings of work.
"I think [Langlois' strong second
inning] was very important" UF
coach Pat McMahon said. "For a
young freshman stepping out there,
it's hard to start a ballgame. ... It's
something where you've got to get
your feet under control."
UF reliever Josh Edmondson

ing two scoreless

score was nothing new for the UF-
FAMU series. Under McMahon,
UF has outscored FAMIU 103-24 in
For the season, opponents have
outscored the Rattlers 102-31.
The Gators ran their season
record to 7-1. In contrast, FAMU
fell to just 1-10, with its only win
coming against Mercer, a team that
handed UF its sole loss this season.
But even after winning by 10
runs, McMahon was not excited
about his team's performance.
"I don't think the score was
indicative of our offensive perfor-
mance," McMahon said. "We've
got to get some guys to step for-
ward offensively, and I believe we
can be a good offensive cub, maybe
by tomorrow. We're not now."

Horford grabbed an offensive rebound off
brewer miss and dished to Lee Humphrey,
to hit a long-distance 3-pointer.
Smith then .turned -the ball over on the
Volunteers' next possession, setting the stage
for Brewer's inbound attempt.
"We took a chance at the end," said
Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl, as sweat perme-
ated through his suit pants and jacket. "I don't
want overtime, and we put [Major Wingate]
on the ball thinking that Florida is going to
get the ball inbounds and run a set. We hadn't
been able to defend in the lane, so I said, 'Let's
make a play right here.'"
UF power forward Joakim Noah was not
on the floor during the final 1:51 after taking
an elbow to the face that knocked out one of
his teeth and gave him a swollen lip that will
Noah was UF's best offensive option
throughout a majority of the game, leading
the way with 20 points, as UF finished with
44 points in the paint. Conversely, Tennessee
scored 33 points (11-21) from 3-point territory.
Early in the second half, Tennessee was
able to take control, limiting the Gators to just
12 points and forcing nine turnovers in the
first 12:30 of the second half.
"I think our inexperience [caused that],"
UF coach Billy Donovan said. "I'm not using
it as an excuse. ... I think that when ycf win
basketball games like we've won; we've won
on heart, passion and toughness."
And while the Gators were able to rally
and tie the score, the outcome was ultimately
the same as UF's five other league losses dur-
ing the last month.
"These are the situations our guys need
to be in for us to reach our full potential as a
basketball team," Donovan said. "I think a lot
of people will focus on the last play, but you
know what, with the way these guys battled,
it's a shame to lose that way."

e? Who else would make the play

The Rowdy Reptiles stood ready

PN Classic of a contest, the Gators
in't wonder if they were going to

n was: Who is going to make the
"I felt like we had the momentum

So with the score knotted at 72,
a Gators had 18 seconds to inbound
a ball, to hog the ball, to drain the
ot clock to attempt a potentially
me-winning shot. They had called
timeout to set up a play and they
11 had one timeout remaining.
Coach Billy Donovan instructed
ewer, the inbounder, to get the
11 to Taurean Green or Al Horford.
After inbounding it, Horford would
move to the high post where he
would either find an open teammate
or take it to the hoop. Instead, Brewer
lost sight of his teammates, and the
timeout he could have called to reset
The players froze in his eyes. He
thought he spotted Horford open.
Instead it was Bradshaw orchestrat-
ing a blockade. The ball would end
up in Bradshaw's hands. Deja vu.
"I didn't even realize I did it twice
until someone pulled me aside and
told me," Bradshaw said.
Boy was 90-year-old grandfather
Pop Jack smiling. Jack had trekked
to the O'Connell Center all the
way from Amelia Island to watch
Bradshaw play, to watch Tennessee
"Coach says a team can play
with us for 30 minutes," Bradshaw
said, "but that we always wear them
down for the last 10."

GPD felt it couldn't prove that Tookes

thought the gun was unloaded.

GPD spokesman Keith Kameg told the
Orlando Sentinel that they did not cooperate
until the police called the athletic department.
"Once the players were contacted by the
coaches," Kameg told the newspaper, "it's
amazing-how willing they were to talk to us
on our terms, not their terms."
Because of this and the fact that no one
has gotten in trouble for acting so carelessly
and dangerously, Meyer must discipline
them more than he would have if they were

He threw the ball away.
Against the same team, in a replica of the first
game, during the period of the game known as clutch
time, Corey Brewer passed the ball to Tennessee. He
threw away the game with the score tied, triggering
an anvil of pain only Bill Buckner could relate to.
"I don't want to say anything right now. I
lost the game again."
"Oh, God," Brewer said. "That's all I could say."
After the game, he was brave enough to face the
media. After the play, he was hurt enough to over-
flow Lake Alice with tears.
"I don't want to say anything right now," Brewer
said. "I lost the game again."
The game was in his hands. The script rested
within his fingers. No way would this one end the
same way the Tennessee game had concluded on that
chilly Jan. 21 night in Knoxville, Tenn. His right ankle
was fine this time.
During the first meeting, with the score knot-
ted at 76, Brewer led a fast break that should have
ended with his or Joakim Noah's game-winning shot.
Instead Chris Lofton leapt from an ambush position,
stole the ball and found a wide-open Dane Bradshaw
for the game-winning layup.
Could you believe it would be Brewer passing it
to Tennessee again? Could you believe it would be
Bradshaw again smack at the epicenter of it all?

coach Bruce Pearl, as the sweat drenching his olive
suit began to crystallize into a winning stench. "Who
