Trustees set guidelines after CLAS debt
* UF'S GOVERNING BODY APPROVED EIGHT PRIN-
CIPLES TO AVOID FINANCIAL MISMANAGEMENT.
By ELIZABETH HILLAKER
Following the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences' mul-
timillion-dollar debt, officials from UF's top governing body
approved a set of financial guidelines for UF on Thursday.
The Board of Trustees' Committee on Finance and Facilities
recommended the eight principles, which outline responsible
accounting procedures. The entire board will consider the pro-
posal at today's meeting.
"To the extent that we can, we'd like to avoid other situa-
tions like [the CLAS debt]," said Dianna Morgan, the commit-
CLAS was never practicing fraudulent accounting, said
trustee Al Warrington. Instead, college officials just didn't fol-
low "principles of financial management."
UF Provost Janie Fouke said in.an interview that UF's bud-
get directors and new department leaders will receive financial
training. This program has been in the works for some time,
she said, but the CLAS debt spurred officials to speed it up.
A committee to decide how UF's budget will be allocated is
also in the works, she said. It will review each college's respon-
sibilities and give them the resources they need, she said.
SWarrington also said that at $55 million, UF's current con-
struction costs "seem out of control."
He suggested the university should focus on supporting
faculty members instead of expensive
UF construction projects. UF President
Administration Bernie Machen agreed.
"We have a lot of work to do on the
personnel side," he said. "It's reflected in our salaries."
Last week, CLAS officials announced a plan to gradually
reduce faculty to save money. In an interview after the meeting,
Machen said prioritizing faculty is a "university issue" that is
not linked to CLAS's plan. The college needs to do what it can
to cut costs, he said.
"It's simply a balancing act," he said.
Attack leads to gunfire

Two SFCC students were attacked
outside their southwest Gainesville apart-
ment early Thursday morning, according
to a police report.
One student, Clinton Howard, used a
.45 handgun to thwart the two attackers,
shooting one in the chest.
Two men were charged with burglary
and battery, and one was taken to the hos-
pital after receiving "nonlife-threatening
injuries," according to the report.
Colin Douglas Williams Jr., who lives
in Alachua, was arrested not far from
the crime scene, near the intersection of
Southwest 13th Street and Southwest 16th
Avenue, at 9:14 a.m.
Patrick Jensen Fort, who was shot in
the attack, was also arrested.
Jeremiah Smith, the other SFCC stu-
dent who was attacked, said he was smok-
ing a cigarette outside his second-story
apartment's front door with Howard, his
At about 5:20 a.m., a Chevrolet
Avalanche drove by, and the passengers
shouted insults from the truck's windows,
according to the police report.
Smith said he and Howard shouted
back as the truck drove out of sight
around the apartment building.
A few moments later, Smith said, "they
just came running up the stairs."
"They said they were undercover sher-
iff's officers," Smith said. "Well, I thought
for a second they could have been, but
from the way they acted, that went out
According to police, one attacker be-
gan to grab and punch Smith and another
went after Howard.
"The guy just ripped off my shirt
- man, it was like Hulk Hogan," Smith
The roommates managed to escape
into their apartment. The attackers fol-
lowed. Then, according to the police re-
port, Howard went to get his gun.
"They said they were undercover
sheriff's officers. Well, I thought
for a second they could have
been, but from the way they act-
ed, that went out the window."
Across the street at Frederick Gardens
Apartments, Brad Bryant, a UF criminol-
ogy major, was getting ready to go to his
Air Force ROTC physical training.
"I heard yelling," Bryant said. "Then I
heard a gunshot."
Howard fired his gun once. It was
loaded only with a rat shot, a cartridge
similar to a shotgun shell that sprays
small pellets instead of a bullet.
Smith said this is when they called
"I thought it was awesome that ...
within a minute (of the shooting) there
were two cop cars there," Bryant said.
"They always patrol this street because of
speeders. This is the part of town where a
lot of stuff happens."

Infirmary offers STD shot
Event flaunts Asian flair
By CHRISTINA KALIHER
Alligator Contributing Writer
Female students can now turn to UF for
protection against a common STD if they're
willing to shell out $450.
This is the first semester that UF's Women's
Clinic has given the vaccine for the human
papillomavirus, or HPV.
"HPV is the most common sexually trans-
mitted disease," said Tom Belcuore, who di-
rects the Alachua County Health Department.
"The four types (of HPV) in the vaccine are
responsible for 70 percent of cervical cancer
and 90 percent of genital warts."
The vaccine, called Gardasil, is adminis-
tered in three doses which UF administers
for a price of $150 each.
The university-has given about 10 shots so
far, said Phylis Craig, a nurse-practitioner for
the Women's Clinic.
HPV is contracted through "skin-to-skin
contact with someone who has that virus or
something that has that virus," Craig said.
"Most often it's from rubbing or cose con-
The vaccine is effective for at least four
years, she said. Although it's only approved for
females, males are susceptible to HPV as well.
"Guys get HPV. That's for sure," Craig said.
"But the vaccine, this first vaccine, has been ap-
proved for this point in time for women and
girls between the ages of 9 and 26."
Belcuore said the vaccine representss a
big breakthrough" in reducing the number of
deaths due to cervical cancer.
"The four types (of HPV) in the vac-
cine are responsible for 70 percent
of cervical cancer and. 90 percent
of genital warts."
Alachua County Health Department director
Women who have never been infected with
HPV benefit most from the vaccine, accord-
ing to the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention's Web site.
But those who have already been infected
with HPV can still get protection from the
virus types in the vaccine they have never
"At some point, I am sure we will see this
vaccinebecome one of the routine childhood
immunizations," Craig said, "just as we saw
Hepatitis B become routine."

Dancers whirling their glitter-
ing robes and clacking their bracelets
brought South Asian culture to UF on
SThe South Asian American Student
Assembly introduced students to
South Asian dubs and other resources,
and was organized by the South Asian
American Student Alliance.
Paul Varghese, an Indian-American
comic featured on Comedy Central
and on NBC's "Last Comic Standing,"
performed at the Reitz Union Grand
Ballroom. He joked about life as the
son of Indian immigrants, made fun of
Indian food, relationships and spelling
bees, and discussed the lack of South
Asian Americans in entertainment.
He said writer and director M. Night
Shyamalan is an exception.
"How are you going to make a
movie called 'The Village' and not put
any Indians in it?'he joked.
Farheen Akbar, president of the al-
liance and a Pakistani American, said
she invited the comic to lightheartedly
portray obstacles of growing up as a
minority in America.
Dancers from the Hindu Student
Council whirled shimmering saris
and swung colorful clothes to the
beat of Indiarrmusic. Members of the
Pakistani Student Association flaunted
traditional garb in a fashion show.

tims of an October earthquake that hit

compensation for the year could
depend on how well he pays facul-
ty members, expands need-based
aid and improves campus sus-
tainability, or the conservation of
resources for future generations.
Those goals were outlined in
a set of 51 objectives for Machen

Board of Trustees' Committee
on Governance discussed at its

that maps the university's route to
becoming a top-tier institution.
But at Thursday's meeting,
Machen said the trustees should
consider a different way to chart
To revamp the goal-setting sys-
tem, Machen said the board should
create "a simplified model" of his
annual and long-term goals.
That plan would compress
Machen's yearly and three-year
objectives into a single document.
"It's very aligned with where
we want to go," said trustee
Dianna Morgan, the former senior
vice president of public affairs for
Walt Disney World.
If the trustees eventually ap-
prove Machen's plan, his yearly
compensation could be affected,
said committee Chairman Mac

in the current plan would remain
from year to year.
"There are a lot of them that
won't get accomplished in a year

Machen also highlighted three
of his own goals for the univer-
sity, which include analyzing UF's
financial needs and strengthening

ees and other administrators.

Senator protests districting
By JESSICA DaSILVA
Although Student Senate of-
ficials recently decided against
altering the way seats are dis-
tributed, one lawmaker says
maintaining the status quo is
At Tuesday Senate meeting,
Sen. Robert Agrusa announced
the Judiciary Committee would
not redistribute seats for the up-
coming year. One of that com-
mittee's roles is to decide how
many seats each college and
student living area should be
given in Student Government's
But if Sen. Ryan Nelson has
his way, SG will alter its seat
distribution by Spring.
Nelson plans to propose a
measure that would remodel
the Senate's seat apportionment
to reflect the methods used by
the U.S. Congress.
Byusing thatmethod, Nelson
said, SG rules would align with
"If it's good enough for
the United States Congress, it
should be good enough for SG,"
"If it's good enough for
the United States Con-
gress, it should be good
enough for SG."
If the Senate votes in favor
of Nelson's bill at its meeting
Thursday, graduate senators
would gain an additional seat
- which some lawmakers say
is necessary anyway.
Graduate students account
for 21 percent of UF's student
body, but there are just seven
senators, about 8 percent of the
Senate, representing them now.
Cecilia Amador, a graduate
senator with the Unite Party,
said graduates deserve more

even, Agrusa said.
"The issues are the same for

students)," he said.
Sen. Heshan "Grasshopper"
Illangkoon said although he
supports Nelson's bill, he thinks
graduate representation in the
Senate is already "pretty cose to
what we want."
S"Getting one seat would be
just enough for the semester,"
he said. "I wouldn't expect more
than that, really."

We all have addictions. Whether it's drink, drugs or just
the sound of your own voice, there's probably something in
this world you can't live without.
Hi. We're the Independent Florida Alligator, and we're
addicted to cheap jokes.
As far as addictions go, that's not so bad. People tangle
with rougher stuff every day. Still, it's a 550-word-a-day
habit, and we have to get our fix. So bear with us as we begin
this week's edition of ...
Darts & Laurels
We start things off by tossing a we'll-never-hear-crikey-
the-same-way-again LAUREL to the late, great Steve Irwin,
a man who was obviously addicted to danger. Better known
as the Crocodile Hunter, Irwin was killed Monday when a
stingray stabbed him in the chest with its poisonous tail
barb. Experts say the attack was "a one-in-a-million thing."
Irwin was filming a documentary called "The Ocean's
Deadliest," a joke we won't touch with a 10-foot pole. But
we will say this: Irwin, a respected conservationist when he
wasn't a beloved TV personality, died doing what he loved.
He will be missed.
,Next, we launch a failure-must-be-your-anti-drug
DART at the Office of National Drug Control Policy, which
is responsible for those anti-marijuana ads we all know and
love. Since 1998, the federal government has spent $1.4 bil-
lioni on the ads, and the president just requested another
$120 million for next year's TV spots. But according to a
recent study, they don't work. Well, duh.
It gets better, though. The study also shows that expo-
sure to the anti-marijuana campaign makes some kids more
likely to smoke weed which the Office of National Drug
Control Policy tells us leads to harder drugs. So good job,
guys. Somewhere out there, a teenager is turning tricks be-
hind a Dumpster for a nickel bag, and it's all your fault. We
hope you're happy.
On the subject of addicts, we toss a step-away-from-
the-mirror DART at the men and women of the Swamp
Party, who chose candidates this week for the Fall
Student Government election. What are they addicted to?
Themselves, of course.
From Student Body President John Boyles recently
crowned UF's "most adorable SG official" to the lowliest
functionary, Swamp has some great people. They're good
enough, smart enough and, gosh dam it, people like them.
And of course, they're not afraid to say so.
Party bigwig Josh Weiss said this year's slate includes
"the most outgoing, the most talented and the most en-
gaging students" that Swamp has ever fielded. Last year
was great, of course, but this year ... wow. The Alligator
suspects next year's candidates will be you guessed it
even better somehow. Amazing!
Thankfully, not all SG candidates wear heart-shaped
lockets with their own faces inside. The Alligator slides'a
how-are-you-guys-the-most-normal-ones LAUREL to the
insurgent Pants Party for deflating the rampant narcissism
on display this week with a little good-natured humor. It's
a shame they have no chance of winning a seat.
Speaking of which, U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris the
most tarted-up and darted-up politico in Florida some-
how snagged the Republican Party's Senate nomination in
this week's primary. For that, we shoot at what-the-hell-
were-you-thinking DART at everyone who voted for her.
You know she's going to lose, right?
SThen again, her candidacy should at least be good for a
laugh. We just hope Harris takes UF's new online alcohol
course before her campaign bus rolls into Gainesville. This
is a college town, after all. She could hurt herself.

UF upbeat to open '06 season
* THE GATORS HAVE MADE THE
NCAAS TWO STRAIGHT YEARS.
By ALEX WEINTRAUB
Things have changed for UF's
cross country teams.
The Gators have a new at-
titude and a reinvigorated drive
as the UF men and women gear
up for today's season-opening
University of Tampa Classic.
"We've had a change in men-
tality," UF coach Jeff Pigg said.
"We've been willing to make
"I mean, we had guys that
were running 90 miles a week
during the summer and working
The teams hope to remain on
the steady rise they have been on
since Pigg took over as coach of
both squads in 2002.
The men's team is looking to
improve on last year's run.
In 2006, the Gators picked
up their first at-large bid to the
NCAA Championship in the his-
tory of the program.
The feat marked the team's
second consecutive berth at the
NCAAs, something that had
never been accomplished before
by a UF cross country team.
The men's team returns a
talented core of runners to help
improve on the 2005 finish.
Of the seven runners who par-
R K"*i; Y (;
ticipated in last year's NCAAs,
six will be returning.
The group includes sopho-
more Jeremy Criscione.
As a freshman last year, he
home the team's best time at the
NCAAs and finished 112th in the
The men's squad also returns
junior Steven Hassen and senior
Daniel Parker, who finished third
and fourth on the team, respec-
tively. The two also ranked 132nd
and 142nd nationally.
"We've been willing to
make sacrifices. I mean,
we had guys that were
running 90 miles a week
during the summer and
working really hard."
UF cross country coach
This does not mean the Gators
have all their questions answered.
In fact, they're far from it. UF fin-
ished 23rd out of 31 teams in last
season's final event.
UF must also find a way to
replace departed sophomore
Lechebo recorded the team's
highest finish in five of last
season's seven events, includ-
ing the Southeastern Conference
Championship and the, South
"We had some good stuff hap-
pen last year with the team," Pigg
said. "But we're getting ready for
this year now."
On the women's side, the team
is trying to improve on last year's
fifth-place finishes at the South
Regional and SEC champion-
The Gators consist mostly of
underclassmen and will be one of
the youngest squads ever fielded
by the program.
Junior Lindsay Sundell placed
among UF's top three in every
Another top returnee is sopho-
more Jacy Kruzel.
She enjoyed a stellar fresh-
man season by recording the
team's best time in the SEC
According to Pigg, both 2006
teams must advance to the
NCAA Championship in Terre
He also wants to see the teams
improve on last season's finishes
in the SEC championships.
The women's squad hasn't
qualified for the NCAAs since
"We're going to have to out-
work other people," Pigg said.
"Right now, they believe they are
good and they expect to be good.

SITE: The Swamp, Gainesville,
KICKOFF: Saturday, 6 p.m.
The alligatorSports Brand Picks
Column has gone medieval.
With UF set to host Central Florida
this weekend in the Swamp, we here at
ye olde alligatorSports wanted to find
an expert source who could give us ye
finest insight into Saturday's matchup.
After some deliberation, followed by
some nasty slapping and hair pulling,
we unanimously agreed that no one
could better provide us with more
savvy analysis on the Golden Knights
than a real life knight or at least some
dude who acts like one at an elaborate
So we immediately ran to the nearest
phone and dialed Orlando's Medieval
Times Dinner and Tournament, where
after several days of waiting and hun-
dreds of dollars in long-distance phone
charges, we were finally connected with
the Yellow Knight, Jason Jones.
The Yellow Knight said he would
consider joining the Golden Knights if
they requested his services, but a few
rule changes would have to be made.
"I would be on horseback, but ev-
erybody else would be on foot," Jones
said. "I'll be the running back, but I am
going to be on my horse with my lance
and I am going to run straight up the
middle. I might not need the lance, so I
would be nice and I wouldn't even use
the lance for the second half."
The Yellow Knight would also de-
mand that his squire have access to the
playing field at all times.
"The squire would bring me water,
and if somebody touched my armor
and messed it up, he would have to
shine it right there," Jones said. "I can't
play the game with dirty armor."
In fact, he said that UCF would easily
defeat the Gators if they had his assistance.

"If we don't get better this

Tate Casey said. "Tougher than
it could be."

(1-0) aren't looking past the
showdown with the class
of Conference USA's East
Division, Central Florida, at 6
The Gators' first two oppo-
nents accomplished two things
Tennessee didn't last season:
They made a bowl game
and finished above .500.
That didn't stop one UF
player from muttering bulle-
"I've got to be honest I
think maybe a lot of the [UCF]
guys there maybe wanted
to come to the University of
Florida," sophomore tight end
Cornelius Ingram said. "So
they might feel disappointed
in a certain kind of way."
That may fire up the Golden
Knights, but it's the Gators
who need to improve if a win
at Rocky Top is in their future.
Most importantly, they need
to find a running back.
Meyer originally labeled
starter DeShawn Wynn (neck
stinger) questionable for
Saturday but said Wednesday
that the senior should play.
"I'm a little disappointed
with the tailback position,"
Meyer said after the 34-7 win
against Southern Miss. "We

Wide receiver has become UF's
most versatile tool on, off field
after UF quarterback Chris Leak
aptly read the children's book "Little
Granny Quarterback" to a room of
about 40 first-graders, Jemalle
Cornelius took his turn.
"He seemed to be very comfortable
and made a real connection to the chil-
dren," said Kutura Godbolt, who taught
the class at Finley Elementary School. "It
was very friendly and warmhearted, and
he seemed to really capture the hearts of
In one of his many visits to Gainesville
schools, Cornelius joined Leak and run-
ning back Kestahn Moore to read to
Godbolt's class earlier this semester.
The senior wide receiver read the fic-
tional children's book "Miss Nelson Has
a Field Day."
The book is about a woman who
shapes up a team, making the players
work together to make it a winner.
Coincidentally, it is Cornelius who has
acted out the very lesson of that children's
On a team with a defensive tackle who
fathered three kids and another one who
failed two drug tests this year, Cornelius
stands out as a class act.
He has emerged as a leader on and off
the field and in the community.
"Coach (Urban) Meyer kind of chal-
lenged me because I was kind of a quiet
guy, kind of stayed to myself," Cornelius
said. "I'm here to help people, and be-
sides football, to help people on and off
Last season, cornerback Vernell Brown
held a similar position, and Meyer named
him the "Face of Florida football."
By his impact on offense and special
teams, Cornelius may be the MVP of
the No. 9 Gators (6-1, 4-1 Southeastern
Conference) this year.

Cornelius (below) takes

on Sept. 9.

Most know Cornelius for his pass-
catching skills. He ranks second on the
team with 325 receiving yards on 17
catches, including three touchdowns.
"He's a playmaker," defensive lineman
Ray McDonald said. "Watch on Saturday
- he always makes a big catch in clutch
Without recording a catch in a 27-17
loss at Auburn two weeks ago, he still
played a factor.
That's because Cornelius holds a spot
on the kickoff coverage, punt coverage
and punt-return teams.
"He does everything for me," Meyer
said "He makes play after play, especially
-when you need a play to be made. If I had
to dr.ft a team in college, I'd probably

only one domng anm talking.

'THAT'S MY BOY'
Believe it or not, Cornelius' deep re-
i.tionshlp i\ ith Meyer started out a bit
When the t-vo first met, Cornelius
called his father Clinton, a senior pastor
in Fort NMeade. \\-ith bad news.
'Imalle said. '(Meyer) wasn't very
happy\ \ ith me but it was more of a chal-
lenge.' Clinton said. "He had found out
that Jemalle was a good kid but he wasn't
hanging out with the kids that get in
trouble. He wanted Jemalle to be there to
make sure that they did the right things."
That meant that Cornelius would have
to break up the monotony of calling his
dad every night and start going to clubs
with his teammates.
Clinton said that Jemalle hadn't gone
to clubs in the past, but the idea of min-
gling with his teammates while watching
out for them sparked him to follow them
into the Gainesville night.
"Jemalle took that challenge," Clinton
The prospect of keeping his teammates
in line was tough for Cornelius, who had
never been in trouble, his dad said.
Jemalle did receive detention once, for
allegedly throwing a pencil while work-
ing on a project as a teenager.
Despite that ugly incident, Meyer has
placed the receiver on his Leadership
Committee in both of his seasons at UF.
Among other things, Committee mem-
bers are responsible for handing out in-
house punishments to players who com-
mitt disciplinary infractions:
The second-year coach has referred to
the ,wide receiver as "my boy" and said
that Cornelius would earn "Champions
Club" status every week regardless of
Players may earn weekly entry into the
club based on grades given by position
"He'll always grade out a champion.
It's like saying Nate Meyer didn't grade a
champion," said Meyer, referring to his 7-
year-old son. "I hope Nate turns out to be
like him because Jemalle is a special guy."
Meyer also has called upon Cornelius
to mentor troubled players.
"(Meyer) kind of lets me know, and
sometimes a lot of guys just come to
me and tell me that they're struggling
with certain things," said Cornelius, a
family, youth and community sciences
major. "They need prayer or something

resents this university the way it should
Cornelius' message got through to re-
ceiver Riley Cooper last week.
Slowed by two turf toes, the freshman
dropped a couple passes and heard about
it from the coaching staff.
Then Cornelius came to the rescue.
"I was kind of standing by Coach
Meyer when he told Jemalle to go and
get him," receiver Cornelius Ingram said;
"It's neat because right after that hap-
pened, I think (Cooper) caught two or
three deep balls in a row."
Added Cooper: "I forget what he said,
but it obviously had an impact. He just
told me to keep my head up."
Even if a teammate needs help in mi-
nor matters, Cornelius serves the role of a
"Even if you call him on the cell phone
and ask him for some sugar or something
like that, he's there," tailback Kestahn
A RT.1SSE1l FUTURE
Cornelius took his talent off campus
in January, going to Washington, D.C., to
represent UF at the Knight Commission
Summit on the Collegiate Athlete
It was there that he participated in a
panel that discussed issues such as sub-
stance abuse, performance-enhancing
substances and misogyny among student-
"I don't think a lot of programs are
focused on choices and values; they're fo-
cused on scoring touchdowns," Cornelius
said at the Summit.
For Cornelius, the experiences with
6-year-old kids, 20-year-old athletes and
those in the nation's capital have pro-
vided career training.
He has thought about following his
father, Clinton, and becoming a youth
"To whom much is given, much is
required," said Cornelius, paraphrasing
part of Luke 12:48. "It's a lot of respon-

"I don't know about the Golden Knight, but the Gator doesn't want to have anything
to do with the Yellow Knight," he said.
"A Gator has no chance against the Yellow Knight," Jones said. "I will layeth my lance
on the Gator, and my lance will go right through the Gator."
Luckily for the Gators, I wouldn't expect to see the Yellow Knight in a Golden Knight
uniform any time soon.
While his wench was a graduate of UCF, there is apparently some animosity between
the Yellow Knight and UCF mascot, Knightro.
"I wanted to be the Gold Knight, but they came and thi, stole it from me," Jones said.
"So I am a little angry right now."
If it came down to it, Jones said, the Yellow Knight would certainly win in a battle.
In fact, he had no problem taking a jab at the mascot.
"[Knightro] is a very feminine knight, let's just say that," Jones said. "I have seen that
way that Golden Knight rides, and it is embarrassing."

Not even Ron Zook could nave pulled this one off.
In an inexplicable upset of gargantuan proportions, Central Florida pulled
off tfhe upset of the season maybe of the decade. The Golden Knights (2-
0) squeaked past UF (1-1) in the Swamp in a 33-31 thriller.
"Honestly, I think Florida came in here a little cocky," said bewildered ESPN
analyst Kirk Herbstreit after the game. "I don't think they were prepared.
This should teach them a harsh lesson in the future."
UCF pile-drove quarterback Chris Leak into the turf time and time again,
sacking UF's starter twice and forcing four crucial interceptions.
Offensive line coach John Hevesy appeared to vomit on the sidelines after
Leak's second interception
With the game scoreless halfway through the first quarter, UCF defensive
end Rashidi Haughton charged unabated toward Leak and smashed him
from the blindside. When the dazed Leak peeled himself off the turf, he
saw his wobbly pass picked off by cornerback Johnell Neal and run back 51
yards for a touchdown.
Leak finished 18 of 35 with three touchdowns and four costly interceptions.
UCF workhorse tailback Kevin Smith terrorized an overwhelmed defensive
line for 166 rushing yards on 35 carries. He stiff-armed safety Tony Joiner in
the backfield and ran in a 16-yard touchdown scamper that put the Golden
Knights up 14-3
However, Leak would find a temporary groove. He connected with freshman
receiver Percy Harvin on consecutive scores, nudging the Gators ahead 17-
14. When Dallas Baker reeled in an 18-yard touchdown reception with 0:
41 seconds remaining in the first half UF led 24-14 and looked primed for
However, without any second half protection and a nonexistent running
game, the Gators crumbled.
UF tailback DeShawn Wynn put in another disastrous performance, rushing
seven times for two yards.
He also dropped an easy catch that became an interception.
Still, with UCF up 30-24, the Gators had four minutes to hold the Golden
Knights and get the ball back However, UCF recorded four consecutive
first downs. UCF coach George O'Leary would give the no-mercy signal and
ordered a field goal try with one-second remaining. Down 33-24 with one
final play remaining, UF's Jemalle Cornelius ran back the kickoff 90 yards
for a touchdown.

Father's poor health nearly led Brewer to the NBA
Flash back to a celebratory pep
rally at the O'Connell Center
on April 7, and you may still
hear the cheering, clapping and
commotion of 10,406 people re-
joicing that Joakim Noah, Al
Horford and Corey Brewer had announced
their return to college basketball.
But one conversation could have easily
made the crowd's cheers morph to tears
and reduce their rejoicing to heartbreaking
"I was almost out the door," Brewer said.
"It was a hard decision for me to come back
just because of my situation. I wanted to be
able to take care of my family."
Even though Brewer's family members
live more than 600 miles away in Portland,

Back to back? History not on UF's side as it aims at another title
By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
The wait is over the Gator boys are back.
Nearly seven months have passed since the UF men's basketball team
claimed its first national title, and the Gator Nation has been salivating at
the thought of a repeat ever since the team's star players announced they
would be staying in Gainesville for at least one more year.
Junior Joakim Noah plans on delivering that dream but cautions that
the journey will be a long one.
"I feel like we can make history and do something really special this
year," Noah said. "Of course, the goal is to win a second championship,
but to get to that point, there's a lot of places we have to go before that,
and I think we can't forget that. We can't think about March yet."
The Gators ascended to the pinnacle of college basketball last spring.
UF trounced UCLA 73-57 in the national championship game en route to
a 33-6 record.
Six days ago, the Gators found themselves right back where they
ended ranked No. 1 in the nation by the ESPN/USA Today Coaches'
UF is the first championship team to return all five starters in more
than eight seasons. This could make repeating which hasn't been done
since Duke in 1991 and 1992 more realistic than usual.
As the hype continues to escalate, the Gators are realizing more and
more the importance of maintaining a level of humility.
"In the game of basketball, there's going to be a lot of humbling mo-
ments whether it's a loss or getting dunked on or getting crossed,"
Noah said. "As soon as somebody's doing well on the other team, the
whole team is going to let you know about it. So I think that's the thing
about us we all keep each other on edge."
UF will unofficially usher in the new season when it takes on
Northwood tonight at 7 in an exhibition game.
But if fans expect to see the same team they watched dominate in the
NCAA Tournament, they better think again.
For starters, there are four completely new additions to the roster.
"I think any time you add different ingredients to the soup, it is going

to taste a little different," UF coach Billy Donovan said. "Our guys all
have to work on the team chemistry.
"If you were living in a house, and all of a sudden you decide you have
new guys living in our house and everything was peaceful for a while, it
may change the complexion of your house a little bit."
And then one must consider the team's mentality.
Are they still hungry?
Can they still play unselfishly after winning a championship?
Can they handle the pressure of the bull's-eyes on their backs?
"Generally, when people have success, the next thing that happens is
there is a huge letdown," Donovan said. "There's a lack of motivation in
people. ... From a human element, we should fail this year. We should not
be a great team, we should not work as hard, we should not be as moti-
vated and we should not be as driven."
But Donovan can rest easy because, if anything, his players are more
motivated to hold on to the success they've already tasted.
"This is what we've been waiting for ever since last season ended," ju-
nior point guard Taurean Green said. "We're ready to play again and just
get the whole season started.
"Everybody is going to predict us to win almost every game. We're not
even focused on that."
In return for their focus and hard work, Donovan has promised to
shield his players from the added stress to repeat.
"I am not going to allow anybody to take away from the enjoyment
and pleasure that we are going to try to have as a basketball team taking
on this season and the challenge of this year," he said. "With the expecta-
tions, if you do not get to a Final Four and you do not get to the last game
of the year, I am not going to sit there and look at it and say, 'What a dis-
appointing season.'" '
