GATORS NET CHAMPIONSHIP



UF wins first


national title
By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org

INDIANAPOLIS This was an insane
asylum, a pinball machine hurtling UF fans
into Sidney Green, into Tito Horford, into
David Lee.
Sweat flew as bodies grinded together
like a party held in a bathtub overflowing
with molasses. You could barely breathe.
And as lungs functioned at dangerously
low levels, void of oxygen and cramped
by screaming, you could feel that no one
cared. For the first time in school history,
the Gators were crowned NCAAbasketball
champions, 73-57, here in the RCA Dome-
on Monday night.
"The Gator boys are hot right now
- too hot," boasted Joakim Noah amid
other indiscernible screams and yammer-
ings at center court. "We're going back to
Gainesville, and we're going to drink some
real wine when we get there."
At center court, they dogpiled. Like little
kids wading through imaginary mud, they
formed one cluster of happiness, of exuber-
ance, of the sheer joy involved with making
history.
Corey Brewer and Al Horford were the
outcasts more like the musical group
than someone who is shunned. They
hopped away from the mayhem, postur- Kristin Nichols Alligator Stalf
ing, singing, gesturing. Brewer threw two UF coach Billy Donovan raises the net in triumph of the Gators' victory against UCLA to win the NCAA Championship on Monday night

By ANTONIO GONZALEZ and BRYAN JONES
Alligator Writers

It's where it all began. It was only fitting it should
end there.
On Oct. 14, Midnight Madness prepped an
O'Connell Center crowd for what many anticipated
to be an average season.
Few would have guessed they would be back
Monday night to witness their team win the national
championship game.
The home of the Gators was deafening once more


as 5, 996 Gators fans assembled to watch one final
game, never mind that it was hundreds of miles
away.
Broadcast on a 22.5-by-30-foot big-screen, Gators
fans of all ages came to cheer their team on to a 73-
57 win against UCLA for UF's first-ever national
championship.
"This season has been a dream," said UF senior
Justin Orlando, a four-year Rowdy Reptile veteran.
"I couldn't have picked a better place for it to end."
Orlando said he couldn't make the trip to
Indianapolis, and quite frankly, he didn't want to.

UF not a Top 10 for best value
UF was once again absent from
The Princeton Review's rankings
of the Top 10 best-value colleges,
but Kiplinger's Personal Finance
ranked UF as No. 2 for best value
in a public university.
Both companies rank colleges
based on academic strength and
tuition costs. The Princeton Review
also uses ratings by students.
According to The Princeton
Review, New College in Sarasota
and the University of North
Florida in Jacksonville represent
the state in the list of best-value
public colleges. New College was
No. 1 and UNF was No. 5 in the-
2007 edition, which was recently
released. Kiplinger's lists UF as No.
2, topped only by the University of
North Carolina-Chapel Hill, but
UF was not even on The Princeton
Review's list of best-value colleges
in Florida.
The Princeton Review said stu-
dents could get the best "bang for
their buck" at seven other Florida
colleges, including Florida State
University and the University of
South Florida.
New College has been on
Princeton's list in past years, com-
ing in at No. 6 in last year's ratings.
According to the company, New
College is No. 1 this year because
of its low tuition and distinct pro-
gram, where students work closely
with individual faculty members.
They rated UNF as a best-value
because of its great business, jazz,
nursing, nutrition and premed
programs and because it "offers
some of the lowest in-state tuition
rates anywhere in the country."

d Carnival kicks off Pride Month


By ALEX TIEGEN
Alligator Contributing Writer


Tim Hussin / Alligator Staff
Nicholas Dean, assistant Pride Awareness Month director, swirls cotton
candy at the Kickoff Carnival in front on the Reitz Union on Monday.


Inflatable bounce houses,
jousting rings, comedian
Margaret Cho and transgender
activist S. Bear Bergman all come
together for this year's Pride
Awareness Month on UF's cam-
pus.
Pride Awareness Month's
Kickoff Carnival had students
and community members jump-
ing and jousting in inflatable
bounce houses and jousting rings
Monday.
"The carnival's main pur-
pose is to have fun and also just
promote community," Pride
Awareness Month Director
Ashley Goforth said.
Organized by the Pride
Student Union, Pride Awareness
Month seeks to promote commu-
nity, individuality and activism,
Goforth said.
Space Walk of Gainesville
supplied the carnival's bounce
houses, and PSU members served
hamburgers and snow cones to
passing students.
Pride Awareness Month's
events range from political and
educational activities, such as
the Marriage Equality for All
presentation April 12, to social
gatherings, like the Queer Ball on
Friday night.
"It's like the gay prom you


never got to go to," Goforth said.
"A lot of students are unable to
go to their proms with their girl-
friends and boyfriends because
there's a lot of homophobia in
high school. So here, they can feel
safe to bring their partners and
hang out."
The prom will include an ama-
teur drag contest and a search to
find the king and queen of PSU.
Goforth said she hopes the
month will add more diversity to
the lesbian, bisexual, gay, trans-
gender and questioning com-
munity.
"It's like the gay prom you
never got to go to. A lot of
students are unable to go
to their proms with their
girlfriends and boyfriends
because there's a lot of ho-
mophobia in high school.
So here, they can feel safe
to bring their partners and
hang out."
Ashley Goforth
Pride Awareness Month Director

"A lot of people in other or-
ganizations feel that they might
not be able to join more than
one community," Goforth said.
"We're trying to show that there
are LGBT individuals from any


community everywhere."
One of the causes Pride
Awareness Month will promote
is a move to add gender identity
and expression to UF's nondis-
crimination clause.
"It's important that every-
body, no matter how they dress
or who they identify with, is
not discriminated against in
classes or by university services,"
Goforth said.
PSU member and second-year
student Alberto Sierra said Pride
Awareness Month brings atten-
tion to transgender topics, phobia
against bisexual people and other
issues students might not usually
think about:
"It makes the issue more com-
plex," Sierra said. "Generally, I
get the impression that (students
think) it's only a queer commu-
nity, and that's all they ever think
about it. It gives more depth to
it."
On Tuesday, Pride Awareness
Month continues with a Bisexual
Brunch, featuring spoken-word
poets in the Reitz Union, Room
284.
Other events planned for
Pride Awareness Month include
speeches by transgender activ-
ist T.J Jourian on April 12 and
Miss Coco Peru on April 18. The
month ends with the induction
of new PSU officers for the 2006-
2007 year.


SG votes on cutting events budgets of student organizations


By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Alligator Writer
acancino@alligator.org

To save money amid a $309,000 shortfall,
student senators will consider cutting money
initially earmarked for organizations' special
events, including Black History Month and
Hispanic Heritage Month.
At tonight's Student Senate meeting, the
body will vote on an amendment that would


cut the funding for such events. The amend-
ment would reduce next year's special events
budget from $262,290 to $258,786.
The cuts were made to save more than
$3,000 on next year's Student Government
budget, which is facing a $309,000 shortfall.
The deficit came about when the UF Board
of Trustees approved an increase in the bud-
get-funding Activity & Service Fee of 60 cents
per credit hour, rather than the 84 cent increase
SG officials had hoped for.


Student Body Treasurer-elect Ryan
Moseley said that initially groups were al-
lowed a 5 percent increase from this year's
budget, but the shortfall
de forced that increase to fall
Soternment to 3.6 percent.
Hispanic Student
Association President
Jessica Klahr said the $792 cut to the $59,355
Hispanic Heritage Month budget was mini-
mal.


"I appreciate that they are doing (the cuts)
before (next year's) budget starts," she said.
The Black Student Union received a $667
cut in its $50,022 budget for Black History
Month. But treasurer Tyler Redden said his or-
ganization does not foresee any problems with
the cuts because SG executive agencies would
help by supplementing the event costs.
The amendment would also get rid of a
measure that prevents more than half of an
event's budget to be spent on speakers.

STUDENT'GOVERNMENT

Officials work to reorganize SG
o| ^--r^


By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Staff Writer
Ilewis@alligator.org
Student Government officials
may reshuffle several executive
offices, but with about a week- re-
maining until applications for the
positions become available, no con-
crete plans exist for the overhaul.
The offices in question are in
the SG Cabinet, a large part of the
executive branch designed to work
as a liaison between students and
SG officials. Cabinet officials work
together to create programs for
students based around campus
issues.
"SG and the cabinets need to not
be so internal," Student Body Vice
President-elect Lydia Washington
said, echoing a longtime concern.
"They need to be opened up for all
students."
Washington, a cabinet chair-
woman until she assumes the vice
presidency May 1, will oversee the
Cabinet in her new role.
She and Student Body President-
elect John Boyles are seeking input


on how to increase the Cabinet's
efficiency.
Boyles said he and Washington
both support implementing chang-
es within the Cabinet, but added
that those adjustments might not
necessarily entail cutting its size.
"We are in favor of making the
"SG and the cabinets need
to not be so internal. They
need to be opened up for
all students."
Lydia Washington
Student Body Vice President-elect

Cabinet work better whatever
that means," Boyles said.
Under the current arrangement,
44 students hold the title of cabinet
director, each overseeing a smaller
cabinet with a specific purpose.
Some officials, including Student
Body Vice President Joyce Medina,
have complained that the Cabinet
is too large to function effectively.
A few weeks ago, Medina at-
tempted to downsize the Cabinet


from 44 directors to 11 secretar-
ies, taking a bill to Student Senate
to trim her bureaucracy. After
heated debate, senators eventually
quashed her effort.
Medina said she does not intend
to pursue the issue in the Senate
any further.
"My time is up. These next six
weeks I should be transitioning
Lydia," she said during an inter-
view a few days after Senate shot
down her bill.
To assist Washington in her
drive 'to transform the Cabinet,
Medina participated in an open
forum about the issue Friday after-
noon, where senators and Cabinet
officials raised questions and of-
fered suggestions.
Boyles echoed Washington's
sentiment during the meeting,
expressing concern that short-term
remedies will ultimately not in-
crease the Cabinet's efficiency.
"Let's not create Band-Aids that
we can redo every year, but let's
create an all-encompassing body
that can take care of our student
population," Boyles said.


Grad students favor split Senate


May present idea to SG
By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Alligator Writer
acancino@alligator.org
If a bloc of graduate and professional student sena-
tors succeed,two Student Senates could exist: one for
graduate students, another to represent undergradu-
ates.
The group, UF Graduate and Professional Student
Caucus, also hopes to improve communication be-
tween its constituents and senators, as well as steer
more resources toward graduate student programs.
Student Sen. Fei Long, the recently elected chair-


man of the organization, said graduate and profes-
sional senators would work best if separated from the
undergraduate senators.
However, Mike Bowen, a former graduate senator
and the organization's creator, said the group was not
created with the intention to sepa-
Student rate from the Student Senate.
-, rw-; Since its creation, the organi-
zation has held meetings usu-
ally on Monday nights during which students can
voice their opinions and talk with their senators, Long
said.
He added that the separation of both senates will
be discussed in meetings and that the idea could even-
tually be presented before the current Senate.

Gym changes reach $60K


By KAITLIN O'FARRILL
Alligator Contributing Writer

Trading elliptical machines for Arc Trainers and
towels for disposable wipes, UF's Department of
Recreational Sports spent about $60,000 this year
on new additions to campus fitness centers, a fit-
ness coordinator said.
"It's kind of exciting but also time-consuming,"
said Nick Clayton, coordinator for strength and
conditioning.
The money comes from a budget set each year
by Student Government using student Activity &
Service Fee funds, Clayton said. Last year's budget
was about $45,000, but the amount depends on
what equipment is scheduled for replacement ac-
cording to a 10-year plan.
"We try to replace the equipment before it
breaks down because we get a lot of usage," he
said.
Divided between the Student Recreation and
Fitness Center and the Southwest Recreation
Center, the new equipment includes four Arc
Trainers, three plate-loaded machines, dumbbells,
leg-extension machines, abductor and adductor
machines, and adjustable benches.
SClayton said when deciding what to buy, he
tries to balance the demands of the budget with the
equipment replacement plan and student requests.
The No. 1 request from students is more space in
the fitness centers, he said.
"Space is our main concern, so we want smaller
machines," he said.
For next year, Clayton said he hopes to be able
to update the Student Rec Center.
Along with the old equipment, the department


discarded its towel policy at the fitness centers,
which required students to bring their own towels
to the gym. Now, employees offer students disin-
fectant wipes to keep the equipment ocean.
Clayton said the department dropped the towel
policy because too many students were turned
away from the fitness centers for not bringing tow-
els, and it was too expensive for the fitness centers
to provide towels.
Although he admits that not all students use
the wipes, he said the fitness center and custodial
staffs ensure the cleanliness of the fitness centers.
Mary C. Thorkildson, a family nurse-practitio-
ner at the Student Health Care Center, said the new
disinfectant wipes are better.than the towel policy.
Though towels wipe up sweat on gym equip-
"There is a saying that if it's wet,
sticky and not yours, don't touch it."
Mary C. Thorkildson
SHCC family nurse-practitioner

ment, they just move germs around until more
sweat reactivates the bacteria or virus, Thorkildson
said. Disinfectant wipes kill germs.
"Most of this stuff, when its dry, isn't danger-
ous," she said. "But some of it is."
The most common germs found in gyms in-
clude cold and influenza viruses, and bacteria that
cause staph infections and strep throat, she said.
Even though she believes local gyms are usu-
ally ocean, Thorkildson said any place with skin-to-
skin contact, directly or indirectly, has some risk.
"There is a saying that if it's wet, sticky and not
yours, don't touch it," she said.

Editorial


Cold shoulder

Court refuses to hear

Padilla case
If you think your rights are protected as an American
citizen, then the case of Jose Padilla might make you
reconsider.
Padilla, who also happens to be an American citizen, was
arrested at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport in May
2002 after traveling throughout the Muslim world. The Bush
administration declared Padilla to be an "enemy combatant"
who planned to carry out a dirty bomb attack against the
United States. Padilla was subsequently whisked away to a
military brig in South Carolina and held in isolation for three
years without ever being charged of a crime.
That was bad enough. But then, when Padilla's case was
on its way to the Supreme Court which probably would
have deemed the Bush administration's actions unconstitu-
tional the administration changed its tune, transferring
Padilla to civilian custody in Miami and backtracking on its
claim that Padilla was planning a dirty bomb attack, charg-
ing him instead with lesser crimes.
Despite being an obvious attempt to avoid review by the
court, the ploy worked. On Monday, the Supreme Court
decided-in a 6-3 decision not to hear Padilla's'case, largely
because he is no longer in military custody.
And so the Bush administration, which has made a habit
of sidestepping its constitutional authorities when not dis-
regarding them entirely, has successfully dodged a review
by the one governmental organization that could keep it in
check.
To call us disappointed is an understatement.
The minority in the decision, consisting of justices Souter,
Ginsburg and Breyer, thought the court should have re-
viewed it anyway. That sounds reasonable, especially given
the fact that this is a case of unbelievable governmental mal-
feasance that could have repercussions for years to come.
But Chief Justice Roberts, along with justices Kennedy
and Stevens, rejected the appeal because they claimed
the Padilla case now raises only "hypothetical" issues.
Apparently because the Bush administration eventually did
the right thing by transferring Padilla to civilian custody, it's
no longer an issue.
Remember that when federal agents snatch you out of bed
and hold you in a military brig for three years while your
case winds its way through the appeals process. That is, if
you can somehow manage to find legal representation while
being held incommunicado.
And all because somebody somewhere declares you to be
an "enemy combatant."
It sounds outlandish, and it probably is. After all, Padilla's
no saint; besides the latest indictments, he's previously been
charged with aggravated assault, aggravated battery, armed
battery and carrying a concealed firearm. That was all before
he converted to militant Islam in prison.
So he's a pretty bad guy, but that's not the point. Until
recently, the only evidence that had been publicly produced
against him were the accusations of the Bush administration.
Now he will finally have his day in court, but only after
much legal wrangling by his attorneys.
In a country of precedents, allowing the executive branch
to hold an American citizen indefinitely with minimal legal
recourse sets a-dangerous one.
The Supreme Court had the opportunity to set the record
straight. But on Monday, it refused to do so.

Guest Dance Marathon is an insult to student intelligence
Annual Dance Marathon is an insult to student intelligence


've seen some pretty stupid things in my
time here at UF. Guys eating disgust-
ig things for money, girls fighting over
nothing at the dub, Ron Zook as head.coach,
Gainesville Police you name it. But no
drunken act of depravity, no mustachioed
motorcycle cop, no Student Government
president can compare with the idiocy that is
Dance Marathon.
For those of you who aren't familiar with
Dance Marathon, it's an annual event in which
every fraternity and sorority on campus forces
its younger members to spend 30-odd hours
straight in the Stephen C. O'Connell Center
to support the Children's Miracle Network.
It wouldn't be such a bad thing, except for
one little detail the dancers, mostly frater-
nity neophytes, aren't allowed to sleep for
the duration of their stay. Actually, they aren't


even allowed to sit. So, to recap, all the Greek
organizations on campus basically force their
pledges to stand for about as long as it would
take to travel across the entire planet, and
until the scene in the O'Connell Centerlooks
like something out of "Night of the Living
Dead." I guess hazing is acceptable as long as
it's for charity. Seriously though, doesn't the
Eighth Amendment protect against this type
of punishment? Because being forced to stand
up for 32 hours straight definitely qualifies as
cruel and unusual. Hell, I'm pretty sure that if
I treated my dog that way I could be thrown in
jail for animal cruelty.
The reasoning behind the 32-hour stand
might be even more unconscionably stupid
than the act of standing itself. The people
running the event will tell you that you're
standing to "help the children." I'm sorry,
but that's ridiculous. I'm all for helping the


Andrew kids, but how exactly-
Meyer does pushing a bunch
Speaking Out of college students to-
the limits of exhaustion
accomplish anything?
It's the funds that Dance Marathon generates
that helps their cause. Is it really that hard to
come up with another type of fundraiser the
Greek community could use that doesn't in-
dude torture? I'm told golf tournaments are
an easy way to raise money for good causes.
And think about this: If everyone who was
forced to spend 32 hours at Dance Marathon
instead spent one-tenth of that time actually
volunteering at a children's hospital, don't
you think the kids would be better served?
No, this kind of thinking makes way too
much sense. Its OK, I understand. People
can't handle that much change all at once.
That's why I also came up with a way to run


Dance Marathon humanely since the event
would probably be harder to get rid of than
herpes, despite no one liking it. Anyway, why
not simply leave out beds big, comfortable,
fluffy beds and let people sleep when they
need it? What, it ruins the spirit of the event,
you say? Bullshit. Everyone sleeps at Dance
Marathon. Only now, they are forced to go to
the bathroom for a couple hours and pretend
they have a horrible case of diarrhea while
they embrace their new best friend and pillow:
the toilet paper dispenser.
So let us bring sleep back to the forefront,
my friends. Allow the gloriousness that is rest
to come out into the open, out from the cold,
dark depths of the bathroom stall. Do this,
and even I might consider dancing one year.
Maybe. Hey, if George Mason University can
make the Final Four, anything's possible.

Speaker overstated human rights violations against women


Iwas astounded after a talk on "Human Right Violations
Against Muslim Women" sponsored by Islam on
Campus that featured the former Turkish parliamentar-
ian, Merve Kavakci. As a Turkish citizen, I was shocked by
the undemocratic image that she drew of Turkey, a country
that proves Islam can coexist with democracy. As a Turkish
woman, I was stunned by the oppressive images she drew
about a country that has given women the right to vote and
stand in election before many nations, including France,
Spain and Canada.
Turkey is founded on the basis of "laicit6," the principle of
separation of state and religion. Our basic rights are protected
by the Turkish Constitution, which is not based on the rules of
a particular religion. We are free to practice or not to practice
- our religion, and every Turkish citizen can coexist in the
same environment, regardless of our faiths and how we choose
to practice our beliefs.
According to Kavakci, women wearing head scarves are not


Burcin Unel able to get higher education in Turkey.
Speaking Out My experience in Turkey was complete-
ly different from hers, according to her
account. I had many friends in college
- a public university, no less who wore head scarves. These
were friends with whom I went to class, crammed for exams
and spent endless hours at our graduation ceremony. Also, in
Turkey there is no law against wearing head scarves in the pri-
vate sector or in one's private life. There is a well-known dress
code for govnmment employees, which bans head scarves as
well as jeans and tank tops. This is no different from abid-
ing by the dress code of any institution you work for, be it a
university, a consulting firm or the military.
Democracy has many irirtues, such as freedom of expres-
sion of faith, freedom of speech and freedom to choose the
institution you work for. However, we must not forget that
with freedom comes the responsibility to respect rights of
others and respect the mores of society.


It is true that Turkey is a young democracy where much
still needs to be done in the area of human rights. However,
this does not change the fact that women in Turkey, a
predominantly Muslim country, have freedoms that most
Muslim women in other parts of the world can only dream
about. Not only can we leave our houses without a man es-
corting us, we can also become worldwide personalities in
fields ranging from arts to science to politics. Turkey is one
of the few countries that has elected a woman as a prime
minister.
I think the discussion about "Human Rights Violations
Against Muslim Women" should not be aimed at a particu-,
lar country, especially not at a country that has given women
equal rights with men. The real discussions should be about
human rights in the Muslim world, and how to raise the wel-
fare of Muslim women around the world to the level of women
in democratic nations like Turkey.

Gators build early lead, hold on


* UF TOOK AN 11-POINT
ADVANTAGE INTO THE HALF.

By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
dtreat@alligator.org

INDIANAPOLIS They were
labeled the team that was a year
away, the team that was too inex-
perienced to win a title, so excuse
them for their celebration.
As the confetti flew high into
the air and the pile formed at cen-
ter court, Corey Brewer and Al
Horford made a beeline for the sec-
tion of UF students, who instantly
embraced them and almost made
them into one:
And that's when Joakim Noah,
the one whom the people have re-
vered the most, ascended atop press
row and threw his fists towards the
heavens and Gator chomped to the
crowd, signifying that there may
not have been a greater time to be a
Florida Gator.
It took about 91 years, but the
Gators can finally call themselves
the best team in the land.
And they beat the greatest pro-
gram in the history of the game to
get there.
The Gators had four players in
double figures and controlled the
pace throughout the entire game
to defeat UCLA 73-57 to capture
the first national championship in
school history.
"It's indescribable. This is the
best I've ever felt in my life," Noah
said. "You work so hard for these
moments and they're so worth it.
We worked so hard as a team, and
so much sweat and tears and sacri-
fices to get moments like this. I'm
like on a cloud right now."
With the Gators leading 36-25
at the half, guard Lee Humphrey
quickly put the game out of reach,
much like he did against George
Mason in the national semifinals on
Saturday.
Humphrey hit three 3-pointers
during UF's first two possessions of
the second half, the second of which
came moments after he pointed his
hand into the air in attempt to call
a play.
Corey Brewer followed up with
a three of his own to give the Gators
an 18-point lead at 45-27, sending
an already raucous UF crowd fur-


their into frenzy.
-After the three-point barrage,
UCLA cut the deficit 12 points in
the second half and started pressur-
ing the Gators in the backcourt with
less than 8 minutes remaining.
The Bruins pestered UF into
a few turnovers, stirring up the
UCLA crowd, but they ultimately
weren't able to capitalize on the op-
portunities.
The Gators shot six for 19 from


behind the three-point line and 44.8
percent from the floor for the game,
while the frontcourt combination
of Joakim Noah and Al Horford
finished with 16 and 14 points and

INDIANAPOLIS-He stood alone on the stage
at center court, arms extended with his two index
fingers painting toward the sky.
And only seven words were repeatedly uttered
from his lips.
"We're on top of the world baby."
During his five years at UF, senior Adrian Moss
has been called a lot of things: the Boss, Uncle and
Grandfather just to name a few.
But after one magical Monday night, he added
another moniker that he can proudly wear for the
rest of his life: champion.
And not only did Moss become a part of the
first national championship in school history, he
impacted the game in every way a player could.
He finished with 9 points and six rebounds and
was a force on the defensive end as well.
"Keep working, man. It can be done," Moss said.
"It's a euphoric feeling. It don't get no better."
With Al Horford and Chris Richard both picking
up two fouls in the first half, Moss was forced into

Gators'


starter


search


ongoing
By SPENCER DAVIS-VANNESS
Alligator Staff Writer
sdvanness@alligator.org
Two days have passed since
a host of inexperienced pitchers
led the Gators into a 16-2 loss to
Vanderbilt.
And nine days ago, a UF fresh-
man starter opened up a 21-4 loss
at South Carolina.
Tonight, the UF baseball team
will place its fate in the hands of
another first-year pitcher.
As the Gators (19-13, 3-6
Southeastern Conference) con-
tinue to search for starters, fresh-
man Chas Spottswood will pick
up his third start for the UF to-
night in Jacksonville against 2005
Division II national runner-up
North Florida.
Senior reliever Darren O'Day
is not surprised with the recent
struggles of his team's younger
pitchers.
S"[The SEC]
is .arguably
conference in
the country,"
O'Day said.
"The mistakes
you made in
o'1* Palm Beach, or
wherever you
were in high school, aren't going
to fly here."
O'Day, a leader within the
pitching staff, said he took re-
sponsibility as a veteran for
the mental development of his
younger teammates.
"The best thing I can offer is
my personal experience because
I've been there," O'Day said. "I
don't know if I've ever lost 21-4,
but I definitely had some failures
my freshman and sophomore
years."
But O'Day drew the line, say-
ing the young pitchers ultimately
would have to take care of them-
selves.
"The coaches and the older
players have helped With men-
tal approach," O'Day said. "But
I can't be out there with a guy
throwing the pitches for him.
"My role is to help them up to
that point [and] walk them up to
the door. Then they have to open
Sit up and go through."
UF DROPPED FROM POLL: After
flirting with the top two spots in
a host of polls this season, UF fell
out of Baseball America's Top 25
Monday.
"I still think that we can be one
of the best teams in the nation,
even at this point," O'Day said. "I
think that our stock has dropped
with some outside people, but
it's just as high with those that
areiloser to our program."
The Gators have lost six of
their last eight.

Noah, Gators host


block party in rout


* THE SOPHOMORE SET A
TITLE GAME RECORD WITH
SIX BLOCKS.

By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org

INDIANAPOLIS Who
needs buckets anyway?
Knowing there would be no
way he could make Gainesville's
fiesta, Joakim Noah hosted his
own block party at the RCA
Dome. UCLA received VIP treat-
ment with no cover charge.
Noah swatted an NCAA
Championship record five shots
in the first half alone. So after
recording the record, he made an-
other toast to his guests, rejecting
another shot after halftime.
"Whatever I had to do to win
this game," said a bubbling Noah
afterward.
Noah's block totals through-
out the NCAA Tournament are
gaudy. He has altered at least four
shots in every Tournament tilt so
far, totaling 29 in six games.
The last couple of weeks have
turned into Jo-mania. With re-
porters stalking his every move
and pestering him for golden
quotes, Noah was thirsty to
record a breakout scoring per-
formance. The most points he
scored in the Tournament was
21 against Villanova. Against
the Bruins, Noah had no trouble
demonstrating that defense can
win championships.
"He was unbelievable; he's
been there all year, but all this just
goes to prove what we started at
the beginning of the season,"


point guard Taurean Green said.
"I even told my dad before the
season started that we would do
special things because we would
play team basketball."
Attending the game was
Noah's father Yannick; mother,
Cecilia Rodhe; sister, Yelena and
grandmother, Mary Claire.
"I'm so proud of him it's unbe-
lievable," Rodhe said.
This was supposed to be a
nasty, gritty episode of what can
happen when two defensive-
minded teams clash for the title.
But only UCLA's offense received
the nasty memo, as it appeared
anemic for much of the game. The
result: a near Tournament record
for UF, who, with its 57 points
allowed in the title game, almost
bested Michigan State's record
of 56.3 points allowed during
a Tournament. Those were the
Spartans of 2000, the team that
crushed the Gators' title hopes in
UF's first title game appearance.
What the Gators did Monday
night was exactly what the Bruins
had done to their previous two
opponents. But after UCLA held
Memphis and LSU to 45 points
apiece, it was UF plastering the
rim with a lid.
In addition to Noah's swat
tally, Al Horford chipped in two,
while Corey Brewer and Chris
Richard each added one.
"The NBA can't give you this,"
said Noah amid hooting at center
court.
Noah did sneak in a patented
dunk one-quarter of the way
through the second half.
Will there be an encore?
"We're coming back next year
to do it again," Noah said.

happen?" he asked.
Covered in orange and blue
and waving pom-poms, the
crowd roared before the game
at even the slightest glimpse of
the Gators.
And like they've done for
every home game this season,
they jumped and cheered for
the opening tipoff as a pep
band belted out the UF fight
song. The crowd erupted
again when Humphrey con-
nected from beyond the arc to
stretch the UF lead to 42-25 in
the second half.
"Holy crap. We're going to
win this game," said UF fresh-
man Stephanie Miller from her
front-row seat. "I can't believe
we're going to win."
The clocked waned down
and when it flashed 1 minute,
fans knew it was finally hap-
pening.
The dream of so many was
now a reality.
The Gators had won a na-
tional championship.
And the party was on.
"It's absolutely amazing,"
UF senior Nestor Ramos said
amid the chaos. "I can't even
describe the feeling.
"This might be a football
town, but tonight, basketball
is king."
Ramos said he's not going
to school tomorrow.
Instead, he will go to the
Gainesville Raceway to meet
the team for its national cham-
pionship party at noon.,
Fans were told by the pub-
lic address announcer not to
rush the court.
Police officers and security
guards lined the court to make
sure they didn't.
But fans didn't want to go
anywhere.
After the game, fans stayed


for the televised postgame in-
terviews of players and coach-
es. And as a symbolic event,
cheerleaders and Rowdy
Reptiles cut the nets down.
Across University Avenue,
bar-hoppers packed the streets
and sidewalks, and the real
celebration began.
Mobs of Gators fans
charged the streets, hanging
on light posts, shooting off
fireworks and spraying alcohol
anywhere and everywhere.


As the pandemonium raged
on, today's classes weren't on
anybody's mind.
"I am not going to go to
class," sophomore finance ma-
jor Adrian Hayes said. "I've
got a test, but it is probably
going to get skipped."
Lola Roman, a third-year
liberal arts major agreed.
"Hell no [I am not going to
class]," she said. "Who goes to
class the day after we win the
championship?"

INDIANAPOLIS Kareem Abdul-
Jabbar, Bill Walton, Bill Russell and
Charles Barkley were just four of the
basketball celebrities on hand for
Monday night's national champion-
shiRSgame.
Former UCLA players who made
the trip included Ed O'Bannon, Ralph
Jackson, Curtis Knight and Reggie
Miller.
Legendary UCLA coach John
Wooden, who led the Bruins to seven
consecutive national titles from 1967-
1973 and amassed a 47-game winning
streak, was practically the only-notable
figure absent.
Wooden, 95, was hospitalized in
California on Sunday night, but his
condition was not considered life-
threatening.
Wooden had not intended on at-
tending before being hospitalized, but
he reportedly watched the game from
his hospital bed surrounded by family
members.
He is expected to be released from
the hospital in the next couple of
days.
"Coach is always there at the home
games, sitting behind the bench,"
UCLA coach Ben Howland said. "He's
the greatest coach in the history of col-
lege basketball."

ROLL CALL: Aside from the.famous
families of Al Horford, Taurean Green
and Joakim Noah, whose father
Yannick and mother Cecilia Rodhe
sported matching vintage Albert the
Alligator T-shirts, several other notable
UF figures were at the RCA Dome.
UF football coach Urban Meyer
canceled football practice Monday so
he and his wife, Shelley, could travel to
Indianapolis for the
game.
In addition, for-
mer UF forward
David Lee was in the
crowd, sitting near
the players' fami-
lies across from the
Gators' bench.
Meyer Lee, a rookie for
the New York Knicks, was excused
from practice by Coach Larry Brown, a
former UCLA coach.

HONORS: During halftime, members
of the Texas Western 1966 National
Championship team, the first team to
start five black players in a national
title game, was honored by the NCAA
on the 40th anniversary of their cham-
pionship.
The players, who inspired the movie
"Glory Road," were presented watches
by NCAA President Miles Brand.
Former Texas Western coach Don
Haskins was unable to attend but
spoke on a recorded message displayed
on the scoreboard in the RCA Dome.

arms up toward the heavens, facing the crowd with one gar-
gantuan "the field goal is good" sign.
"I don't think this is the NIT," Brewer said, screaming loud-
er than ever heard before. "We're the best team in the nation."
Soon, Noah climbed back onto shore, traded through hap-
py fans, his eyes focusing on his family that had brought him so
far. He embraced his father, Yannick. He exchanged smiles with
his mother, Cecilia Rodhe. Then, at his pinnacle of nirvana, he
sought to hug his sister, Yelena.
"This may sound strange, but I just think we're very, very
blessed," Yannick said, wiping away a smidgeon of a tear be-
neath his UV3 sunglasses.
They muttered some words, Noah and his sophomore
bunch, during their first preseason media opportunity. They
were quiet phrases that became forgotten, and that now are
deafening.
"I feel like we're going to surprise a lot of people," proph-
esized Brewer in October.
Noah delved further into that realm.
"I'm hungry to prove to the world that we're ready to play
the best," he said.
That reversed a popular outlook that had UF being sucked
into the vacuum left by David Lee, Anthony Roberson and
Matt Walsh, who all bolted for the NBA after last season.
For the media and fans, UF's words fell by the wayside. But
for the players, the words were their inspiration, their confi-
dence yearning for something almost unreachable. Now, they
have crushed all barriers of logical thought. Even the former
Gators joined the new inner circle.
"This is absolutely incredible," Lee said.
UCLA legends Bill Walton and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar wit-
nessed this live, then performed an about-face, floating off into
the exits and out of the stadium, onto planes and into the jet
stream.
"This is the best day of my life," said UF senior Larry Page,
who made the trip as part of an eight-fan group. "It's better
than prom. It's better than anything in high school It's better
than getting accepted into college."
And at the epicenter of Gators lore is UF coach Billy
Donovan. Some said he could only recruit while others called
him overrated.
"It's great for our kids and for our program," Donovan said.
"But I'm just a small part of it."
Let a father, after all this, do the talking.
"I had a funny feeling all week, even when he wasn't talk-
ing, that there was a quiet confidence about the coaches," said
Donovan's father, Bill.
And then, after it all ended, two strands of the confetti hung
from the rafters. One was orange. One was blue. One could
represent football. One could signify basketball the story of
a program that has finally arrived.


MOSS, from page 15


extended minutes and responded
scoring all of his points before the
intermission.
His contributions weren't just
limited to the paint, either.
He hit a long jumper, hit free
throws and scored on a put-back
to give the Gators an early 15-8
lead.
In a matchup that was billed
as 'a defensive struggle, Moss
more than held his own on the
opposite end, helping limit the
Bruins starting frontcourt combo '
of Luc Richard Mbah a Moute
and Ryan Hollins to 6 combined
points in the first half.
He also took a charge during
the first half that landed him flat
on his back, screaming in excite-
ment.
"He was big for us tonight,"
Lee Humphrey said. "He's been
around for five years; he knows
how to prepare for games. He
knows the right mindset to have,
and he stays focused. Tonight
he gave us great energy off the
bench."
It has been a long journey for
Moss since he graduated from
Humble High outside of Houston
nearly six years ago.
He spent a year at Fork Union
Military Academy before coming
to UF in 2001 after being ranked
as one of the top unsigned play-
ers in the country during his year
in prep school.
After a great deal of consul-
tation with UF assistant coach
Anthony Grant, Moss redshirted
his first year in Gainesville.
His best season statistically
came .as a sophomore, when he
started 16 games and averaged
6.8 points and 4.6 rebounds, but
chronic back problems slowed
his career.
While the stats might not have
been there, his teammates know
how much Moss has meant to
the team, and it showed Monday
night.


"It's unbelievable how much
he had to sacrifice this year,
and he deserves all the credit,"
Joakim Noah said. "We play for
him. He's our only senior, and I


just have so much respect for him
as a person.
"I'm just so proud that he's
my boy, and I'm just proud to be
his teammate."

UCLA's Farmar scored the
game's first basket, a jump shot
30 seconds into the contest, and
Cedric Bozeman sank a pair of
free throws to give the Bruins a
4-2 lead, their last of the game.
The Gators took their first lead


less than 3 minutes into the game
and steadily built it throughout
the first half.

seven of their first 13 shots of the
game -and uncharacteristically
had just three turnovers in the
first half, not committing their
first until more than 10 minutes

To Steve Spurrier: You're tied, buddy.
To Urban Meyer: Championships don't

To Adrian Moss: You sacrificed five years
of your life only to ride the bench while
younger, more talented stars stole the spot-
light. On Monday, you were the warrior.
To Yannick, Tito and Sidney: Thanks
for never considering a vasectomy. To Ellis
Brewer: Your failing heart kept you away
from the Final Four, but your life lesson of
hard work made your son Corey a cham-

To Lee Humphrey: You're no bagboy. You

Adrian Moss was vital to the
Gators in the early going, scor-
ing 9 points and grabbing three
rebounds before intermission, as
UF led by as many as 13 in the
first half.

but your ascension to the top of the basket-
ball universe is nothing short of stunning.
This championship would not have been
possible without your dedication, passion
and bizarre gestures. But most of all, to the
Gators, the unexpected ones: Before this
astounding season began, you were valued
somewhere between a stock of Enron and a
can of Spam. Champions of the NIT sound-

UF coach Billy Donovan, who be-

deal of pleasure seeing how hard
everyone else works."


ed ambitious. National champions sounded
ludicrous. Somehow, someway, you tran-

almighty presence of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

UCLA basketball.
A hundred years from now, fathers will
take their sons to the O'Dome and point
