Students from UF's College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences criticized a plan to lift the college out of debt at
a forum Thursday night, but most of the students didn't
offer alternate solutions for the college's $4 million debt.
About 20 students showed up to the forum, which
was hosted by Student Government and designed to
allow CLAS undergraduates to brainstorm changes for

Budget deficit. The plan called for
cuts in several departments, such as
English, religion and math.

"It's not just the faculty that felt
they were left out," Baker said.
Baker said he didn't expect students to play a crucial
role in CLAS decision-making, but he felt college ad-

"We need to be in the room when the decision is being
made," he added.
Student Body President John Boyles told the crowd
that there are two ways to solve CLAS' problems: either
raise UF tuition or convince the Florida Legislature to
grant the university more money.
"If we don't go out and vote, then they don't have to
care about us," Boyles said.

problems are low funding and increasing enrollment at

*THE MEXICAN HOLIDAY PAYS
HOMAGE TO THE DEAD.
By ALEX TIEGEN
The grinning, wide-eyed faces
of the dead roamed the Florida
Museum of Natural History on
Thursday, as students and children
strapped on skull-faced calavera
masks to celebrate the Mexican "Day
of the Dead."
El Dia de los Muertos is a day
of prayer and celebration in honor
of departed loved ones, said Alicia
Pe6n, a member of the Mexicans in
Gainesville organization. It is a time
when the living can, in spirit, reunite
with the dead, said Pe6n, who was
born in the Yucatan Peninsula.
At the museum, a mock altar
with offerings of bread and flowers
was set up in homage to the recently
Elizabeth Perez, treasurer for
the Mexican-American Student
Association, stood by the altar wear-
ing traditional Mexican garb and
explained the shrine's significance
to visitors. Perez remembers visiting
her grandparents' home in San Luis
Potosi, Mexico, after the death of her
aunt. The family decorated an altar
in the yard, and musicians played a
long velaci6n, a song for the dead.
"It lasted forever," she laughed.
The holiday mixes Mayan, Aztec
and Catholic traditions that aim to
help the living commune with the
"For Mexicans, death is not some-
thing you can fear," Pe6n said. "It's a
part of life."

Candidates link retaining in-state grads to economy
By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
candidate Charlie Crist plans to
attract business to Florida by
keeping taxes low. His opponent,
Democratic candidate Jim Davis,

he plans to achieve it by spending
more on education.
The plans are different, but the

nomic development and to keep

To make Florida the center of

his Web site.
In return, Crist believes ethanol

said he would
Davis give tax credits
to businesses that hire Florida
"I believe that government's
role is not to create jobs but to
create a business-friendly environ-
ment," Crist wrote in an e-mail.
Democratic Rep. Davis said
he plans to attract companies to
the state by improving education
rather than giving cash breaks.
"Bill Gates says that if you want
to bring something like Microsoft
to Florida, build the workforce,
and jobs will come and they will
stay," Davis said.
He said Florida needs to in-
vest more in quality education so
students can get a diploma with a
"very powerful set of job skills."
"I think that's how you help
people get high-wage jobs ... and
that's how you attract those jobs to
the state," Davis said.
Davis, a UF alumnus, also has a
plan to help small businesses "ex-
pand and prosper."
His program would help busi-
nesses lower the cost of providing
health insurance to their workers,
according to his Web site.
Also, he plans to link businesses
to schools and colleges, encourag-
ing companies to provide training
David R. Colburn, a UF history
professor with expertise on Florida
politics, said he thinks Florida's
economy will remain strong
whether the governor is Davis or
However, he said Crist's ap-
proach could gather the same criti-
cism that Gov. Jeb Bush's programs
gathered during his term in office.
For example, Bush offered the
Burnham Institute for Medical
Research a $310 million incentive
to open a branch in Orlando, but
the company created fewer jobs
than expected only 300 jobs,
"What Davis has pointed out
critically, is that (Bush's program)
is costing Florida and tax payers a
million dollars a job how does
that benefit Florida?" Colburn
Colburn said middle-class
workers are con-
cerned about the
tax breaks given
because the state
is spending a
lot of money
to attract these
Crist companies, but
not enough to create jobs.
Instead, Colburn said research
shows that investing in universi-
ties is a more successful approach
to development than investing in
California, for example, has
chosen to invest its money in its
university system and has had
great success, Colburn said.
Colburn said that Republicans
could probably make a good argu-
ment for Crist's plan, but he thinks
that investment in education has
the biggest impact on graduating
"But of course, I am an aca-
demic," Colburn said. "That's why
I think that."
The president of the Law School
Republicans, Christian Waugh,
said the difference between Crist's
plan and Davis' is that Crist knows
how to maintain an "attractive and
friendly tax environment for busi-
Waugh said that economic
increases are correlated with tax
breaks and cuts. These policies, he
said, are more effective in attract-
ing businesses to Florida.
The more profit the companies
make, the more jobs they will cre-
ate, he said.
Additionally, Waugh said that
when businesses receive tax breaks
they don't have to constantly raise
prices, and when prices are low,
there is an economic benefit for
"The more businesses do well,
the more people would benefit in
Florida," he said.
Crist and Davis will face off in
the general elections on Tuesday.

will continue Friday and Saturday

Tax-cut plans have fans, skeptics
By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
College graduates who want to live
and work in Florida face the task of
finding affordable housing.
To make housing more affordable,.
gubernatorial candidates Jim Davis
and Charlie Crist have proposed low-
ering property taxes.
To do that, Democratic candidate
Jim Davis wants to repeal tax breaks
and keep legislators from raising prop-
erty taxes. His opponent, Republican
candidate Charlie Crist, wants to
instead make local governments live
"within their means."
Davis said Florida's growth is be-
ing paid through property taxes, and if
elected, he would stop that.
According to his Web site, since
1999, state-mandated property taxes
have nearly doubled, rising from $4.28
billion to $8.36 billion.
To achieve his goal of decreasing
property taxes by $1 billion, Davis said
he would repeal some of the tax breaks
Gov. Jeb Bush has given to special inter-
est in Tallahassee, and he would veto
any attempts by the Legislature to raise
property taxes to pay for growth.
"I would work with local govern-
ment and business leaders and not-
for-profit leaders to help build homes
that are more affordable, particularly
for first time homeowners, like recent
college graduates," said Davis, a UF
"If parents want good jobs
for their kids, this is a terrible
UF economics professor
Davis' biggest tax cut would come
from the "required local effort," a state-
mandated tax for schools, which Davis
would require the state to pay instead
Unlike Davis, Crisfs plan focuses
on keeping local governments from
increasing property taxes.
According to Crist's Web site, local
government revenue rose from $16 bil-
lion in 1999 to $22.4 billion in 2004.
"Charlie Crist believes that the lo-
cal governments, like all governments,
must live within their means," his plat-
Additionally, Crist, the state's at-
torney general, plans to lower prop-
erty taxes by doubling the homestead
exemption, which now gives residents
a reduction of up to $25,000 on the tax-
able value of their property.
UF economics professor David
Denslow said property taxes are an im-
portant source of income for the state
because Floridians don't pay income
taxes, which is why Davis' plan is prob-
lematic, he said.
Denslow said that if Davis cuts
revenue by $1 billion, he would have to
collect revenue somewhere else.
Most likely, Denslow said, busi-
nesses would be taxed more, which
would be harmful for them because
its ripple effect would make products
more expensive and make it harder for
them to compete in the market.
UF students would be affected, he
said, because there wouldn't be many
companies offering high-quality jobs.
David R. Colbum, a UF history pro-
fessor with expertise in Florida politics,
said that because local governments
rely on property taxes for income,
Crist's plan would create a problem.
Local governments, he said, may have
to readjust budgets and cut services.
Those services include hiring police
officers and streets maintenance.
Jim Dewey, a UF research economist
and professor, said that, in general, cut-
ting property taxes is problematic.
He said that when people complain
about property taxes, they don't realize
that fewer taxes mean fewer services.
He said that if the homestead ex-
emption were balanced with higher
taxes for businesses, then the busi-
nesses with the best jobs would be less
likely to come to Florida.
"If parents want good jobs for their
kids, this is a terrible idea," he said.

Bilingual hip-hop ushers in Kaleidoscope Month
* ASIAN-AMERICAN HISTORY
By ALEX TIEGEN
Shouts and hip-hop beats made the Orange
and Brew bounce Wednesday night as two
rappers in a Filipino hip-hop group called for
students to take pride in their heritage and
fight for justice.
Kaleidoscope Month, a celebration of
Asian and Asian-American culture organized
by the Asian-American Student Union, began
Wednesday with a concert and tabling fair.
The month will raise awareness of Asian-'
American cultures and issues, said Nicole
"Apple" Guevara, executive director of
Kaleidoscope Month. Events like a Chinese
Mid-Autumn Moon Festival on Friday and
the Mr. and Mrs. Asian American Student
Union Pageant will expose students to tradi-
tional-Asian holidays and dress.
DJ Kiwi, a founding member of the
California-based Native Guns, said hip-hop
is an ideal way to communicate the Filipino
experience to a younger generation.
"Ever since I was young, hip-hop was all
around," said Kiwi, who
Multicultural performed at the Orange
Affairs and Brew.
He and DJ Bambu, both
former gang members, rapped in English
and Tagalog, the official language of the
Philippines. They rhymed about street gangs
and paying respect to their original cultures as
DJ Phatrick laid down the background beats.
"Essentially, we're just trying to uplift our
people," he said.
Guevara said she hopes the month will
help shatter stereotypes of Asian Americans.
Two of the most prominent stereotypes at the
university are those of the "model minority"
and the "perpetual foreigner."
During forums and other events, students
Swill discuss the need for an Asian-American
Institute and an Asian-American studies mi-
nor. These are resources UF lacks, she said.
"If you don't have the resources for them,
then why are they going to come?" she asked.

ing that non-CLAS majors take

The five-year plan was drafted
by the CLAS administration with
help from the college's Faculty
Finance Committee, whose mem-
bers are appointed by Sullivan.
"To the faculty, this does not look
comfortable," Sullivan said.
Brigitte Silver, a religion junior,
said some of her favorite professors
are already looking for new jobs be-
cause of the turmoil in the college.
Sarah Martin, another CLAS
student, also said a few of her pro-
fessors have warned they might be
She said they've told her, "Take
my class in the Spring because I
might not be here in the Fall."
Some students at the forum said

connected from students.

to get a leg up on competition in the

tion is not here anymore," Silver

FOSS, from page 1
Lane, Foss and Alex Canzano were each
charged with second-degree murder.
On Wednesday, Mark Foss pleaded guilty
to felony battery, a charge carrying a maximum
sentence of five years in prison.
De la Rionda said the plea was best for
everyone involved because of Lane's ag-
gravated battery conviction in early October.
Prosecutors had told the jury Lane was the
instigator of the beating and "most culpable"
in Brown's death.
De la Rionda said it would have been risky
to go to trial because the jury could have found
Foss, whom Lane's attorney said threw the
fatal blow, only guilty of battery, which has a
maximum sentence of one year.
Ann Brown,- Brown's stepmother of 16
years, said she is upset the jury only convicted
Lane of aggravated battery in October, which
made it harder to prosecute Foss.
She said de la Rionda warned her and her
husband that Foss might accept a plea bargain
after the disappointing verdict in Lane's case.
"He thought it would be better to take the
lesser charge," she said. "He thought it might be
better to get it over with."
But she is still upset with Lane's conviction.
"The six citizens of Jacksonville let us
..- down, let Tommy down and
Sthe let the other citizens of
Jacksonville down," she said.
S"In the future, when Jeremy
S Lane gets out, it's their chil-
dren and grandchildren who
will have to deal with him."
Lonn Lanza-Kaduce, a
Brown professor at the UF Levin
College of Law, said prosecu-
tors often try the strongest case first.
"This is one of the weaknesses of the jury
system," he said. "The case is put in the hands
of ordinary people, and they don't always do
what people expect."
Ann Brown said she and her husband will
attend Foss' and Lane's sentencing on Nov. 17.
She said Brown's 4-and-a-half-year-old sister
Alexandria wants her brother back.
"Every .now and then she'll say I miss
Tommy. When can he come back?'" she said.

The polls open in four days. That's 96 hours. For God's
sake, that's 5,760 minutes! By this time next week, we'll
have a new governor, a new sheriff and barring an act
of God the same senator. Will you be a part of it, or just
Not that it isn't fun to watch, of course. With races com-
ing down to the wire, politicians are getting more desper-
ate, more pathetic and more downright bizarre with every
passing moment. So come along with us on a special, all-
politics edition of...
Darts & Laurels
We kick off with a you-have-one-unheard-message
LAUREL for Charlie Crist, the Republican candidate for
governor. With Jim Davis gaining on him, he's pulling out
all the stops. On Wednesday, Crist called Sarasota conser-
vatives on his cell phone, leaving messages like, "Mr. and
Mrs. Powell, this is Charlie Crist calling. It's about 10:45. I
would really appreciate your vote." That's retail politics,
We just hope the rest of the GOP doesn't get in on the
act. Imagine Dick Cheney's cursing, George W. Bush's
stuttering or prank calls from Defense Secretary Donald
Rumsfeld. Worse, imagine getting lewd text messages from
former Rep. Mark Foley: "What R U wearing, stud? Vote
4 Crist!!!" You just know he'd love to reach out and touch
somebody in all the wrong places. Gross.
Next, we hurl a let's-not-get-it-on DART at the Bush
administration, which launched a program this week to
promote abstinence among unmarried twenty-somethings.
Never mind that nine out of 10 young adults have already

Our dependence on oil for energy is the equivalent of
a 20-year-old still suckling his mother's teat for milk. Let's
move to the "baba" that's baby for "bottle" already. The
world birthed us, but it won't lactate forever.
So what are our weaning or waning options?
Ethanol, produced from corn sugars, has potential. Car
companies have already designed a flex-fuel system that
can run on both petroleum and ethanol. Around 800 gas sta-
tions currently sell it at the pump in the form of E85 an 85
percent ethanol, 15 percent petroleum blend. Not only does
it emit less carbon dioxide, but the crops used to produce it
absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. An increased
demand for ethanol would also help American farmers.
In Brazil, the world's largest proponent of sugar-based
fuels, all fuel sold is 20 percent ethanol.
But ethanol isn't flawless it currently costs more than
gas and gets fewer miles to the gallon. And it'd be ignorant to
assume we could grow enough corn to sustain our country's
rate of food and fuel consumption.
Switchgrass is another crop being researched for its etha-
nol-producing capabilities, but conversion costs are high.
Either way, mandating a 5 percent ethanol solution would
drastically reduce our dependence on foreign oil. Adios,
The other contender is biodiesel. BioWillie the creation

I'd like to thank Patrick Barrett for his
Thursday column. I totally agree with him
on the significance of marriage in children's
education. I'm glad some people here think
the same as a French exchange student, I'm

Card respected audience's intelligence
Ten minutes after he started, even the ea-
ger Republicans in the front row at Andrew
Card's speech were yawning. We all wanted
to hear the gritty details from a White House
insider. What we heard instead was Card's
misty-eyed reminiscing about the President's
2000 inauguration, although it's understand-
able that Card chose to dwell on that day it
was all downhill from there.
In other words, it was a lamentably pre-
dictable and entirely unprovocative speech.
Nonetheless, Card impressed me greatly
during the question-and-answer session
- mainly because it included both questions
and answers, instead of questions, diversions,
and climbing atop soapboxes. Card addressed
each question, regardless of political orienta-
tion, and gave satisfactory answers about ev-
erything from perceived failures of the admin-
istration and controversial Cabinet members
to his opinions on pending legislation.
The audience, including myself, appreci-
ated Card's respect for our questions. He
never dismissed them with partisan quips or
off-topic answers as many previous Accent
political speakers have done, including Ann
Coulter and the Rev. Al Sharpton. I commend

negative about Student Government in the

source for information about the people in SG.

from a group of college students who may not
necessarily take their jobs that seriously?

Storms solicit unique insurance ideas from candidates
By DREW HARWELL
Many students don't care about
property insurance. It's not exactly
something young people can chat
about over a beer.
But for UF students wanting to
stay in state after graduation, high
insurance rates and low-paying jobs
are becoming significant concerns.
In the last 15 months, Florida
has been hit by eight hurricanes.
Damage from the storms has cost
citizens and the state about $30
billion. That cost is still growing be-
cause insured homeowners have to
pay higher premiums for property.
Both candidates for Florida's
chief financial officer Republican
Tom Lee and Democrat Alex Sink
- say they believe in decreasing the
state's cost of living, but their plans-
on how to accomplish the reduction
Tom Lee, the president: f the
Florida Senate for the past two
years, said the state needs to expand
its role as an agency of reinsurance
for private insurance companies.
By reinsuring these companies, the
state helps relieve their financial
problems so that the companies
"Florida has been held
hostage by insurance
companies profiteering at

"Florida has been held hostage
by insurance companies profiteer-
ing at residents' expense," Lee said.
"We need to force those savings
back to policyholders."
Democratic candidate and vice
chair of Florida TaxWatch Alex Sink
agrees with keeping insurance com-
panies accountable for heightened
Additionally, Sink wants to de-
velop a regional fund among coastal
states from Texas to Maine to lower
the financial risk hurricanes pose.
Each state would put money in
the fund, and if a hurricane strikes,
the fund would help rebuild the
"Property taxes need to be rea-
sonable," she said. "Its really an
issue of fairness."
Both candidates have also said
that Florida's job market is more
low-paying than other states. Sink
said the state's CFO should offer in-
centives to businesses that provide
In 2002, Florida's chief financial
officer position was created as a
combination of the former offices
of comptroller, treasurer, insurance
commissioner and fire marshal.
All of the money that passes
through the state government
- about $63 billion a year is
monitored by the CFO-led Florida
Department of Financial Services.
The current CFO, Tom Gallagher,
is retiring this year.

Politician prefers business career
By DREW HARWELL
If elected, Alex Sink will get a $30 billion
raise in the budget she manages.
As the Democratic candidate for Florida's
chief financial officer, she hopes her history
in banking, specifically her handling of Bank
of America's $40 billion in assets, will con-
vince voters she is a worthy candidate to
handle the state's $70 billion budget.
Sink, 58, grew up on a farm in Mount
Airy, N.C., which still appears in her accent.
Her family raised corn, tobacco and cattle.
At an early age, Sink became interested
in mathematics. When she was about 10
years old, she began her banking career by
helping her father write monthly checks to'
pay the farm's bills.
"I had a head for numbers," she said. "It
always came easy for me."
She received math and business degrees
from Wake Forest University before moving
to West Africa, where she taught at high
schools in Sierra Leone, Liberia and Congo.
When she moved back to the United
States, she began her banking career with
NationsBank, now called Bank of America.
She started out making $9,500 a year.
She worked her way up in the company,
moving between North
Carolina, New York and

UF graduate and gubernatorial candidate in
2002, is enthusiastic about her possible posi-
tion, but her father remains skeptical about
"He knows how politics can get," she
said. "He doesn't like his daughter being
subject to ugliness."
By DREW HARWELL
Tom Lee said when he began in politics, he
didn't know anyone in government, wasn't
interested in political affairs and knew little
about the process.
Starting his political career as a state sena-
tor, he climbed the ladder and became presi-
dent of the Florida Senate in nine years.
The 44-year-old hopes his business back-
ground will provide him the votes he needs to
become Florida's chief financial officer.
Born in San Antonio, Texas, he and his
three brothers and sisters moved to Brandon
when he was 7.
After attending Hillsborough Community
College and the University of Tampa, he
began working at Sabal Homes, his father's
home-building company, and later became the
business's vice president.
After 11 years of dealing with finance
and real estate, he said he was recruited by
Hillsborough County Republicans to run for
an open seat in the Florida Senate.
In 1996, he was elected into the seat, al-
though he still regrets having to focus less on
his business career.
"I've always enjoyed business more than
power," Lee said. He said
leaving his business career
for politics has been an
"enormous sacrifice" for
However, as a senator

background, he said he
Lee had a unique perspective
on issues that were con-
ceived differently by career politicians.
"Because I came from outside of the politi-
cal world, I had a fresh set of eyes," he said.
He said his accomplishments in the Senate
ranged from cutting taxes to toughening ethics
reforms. After working on a bill to ban lobby-
ists' gifts to legislators, he was sued by the
Florida Association of Professional Lobbyists,
Lee still lives in Brandon with his two chil-
dren, Regan and Brandon Lee. His family is
helping with his campaign.

Gators sluggish in season opener against Northwood
By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
As the No. 1 UF men's basket-
ball team took the court Thursday
night for its first exhibition game
of the season, the O'Connell Center
pulsated with the cheers and ap-
plause of 10,783 people, and junior
Joakim;Noah couldn't help but join
in from the bench.
In a late decision by UF coach
Billy Donovan, senior Chris Richard
replaced Noah as the starting cen-
ter in UF's 70-41 victory against
"I did not start Joakim because
he did not take care of his academic
responsibilities this week," Donovan
When asked if he could elaborate,
Donovan only said that he is in no
formal trouble by UF, but Noah did
not meet his own standards.
Noah started in 38 of 39 games
last season. His only non-start was
against Georgia on March 1, UF's last
home game and senior night.
Junior forward Corey Brewer had
a little bit of a scare in the first half
when he almost injured his right
ankle the same ankle he injured
against Tennessee on Jan. 21 af-
ter he slipped on a wet spot on the
floor before lifting off for a dunk. He
caught himself before he fell, but he
was immediately taken off the floor.
He returned with 6:14 left in the half,
and seemed to favor the ankle for the
rest of the game.

it like, 'Who's next?' or, 'What can we do to win this

playing Tennessee or we're playing LSU it's more
of a hunger feeling."
While the Gators are picked to finish sixth in the

"I asked him if he was OK, and he
said he was fine," Donovan said. "I
don't know what he tweaked or what
happened there, but he seemed to
come up hobbled a little bit."
Even though. this was the first
game ever for Northwood, the Gators
looked rusty against the unranked
Seahawks and did not lead by double
digits until an Al Horford three-point
play put UF up 20-10 with 10:13 left
in the first half.
"I did not start Joakim be-
cause he did not take care of
his academic responsibilities
"I didn't see that look in their eye
that I'm looking for," Donovan said.
"I think that everybody here that
watched this team would have to
laugh at the fact that we are ranked
the No. 1 team in the country. Last
year's team would beat this year's
team tonight by 20 to 25 points. It
wouldn't have even been a contest."
The Gators shot for 46.7 percent
and a measly 16.7 percent from
the three-point line for the night.
UF managed to outrebound the
Seahawks a mere 37-34.
"I don't know what it was,"
Richard said. "We didn't come out
to play like we were supposed to. We
didn't look like the team we were last
year. I guess for the next game, we
need to take this and learn from it."

"For me, I like the underdog," Dye said. "You go
into a game, and there's nothing to lose. It's kind of
neat being on a team that everyone in their locker
room is saying, 'Oh my goodness Florida they
can (still) come out and beat us any given night.' That's
what we proved last year. It's disappointing because-
everyone in the top five above us, we beat last year."
But still five freshmen? Just one returning
starter? Normally this would equal
a long season well, maybe.
Prior to last-season, there was
much of the same talk, as the
Gators had no returning double-
digit scorer and just one returning
starter, Brittany Davis. But then UF
responded with a seven-win im-

"I feel like this team really has the opportunity to

can). get respect, win the SEC Championship and pos-
sibly win the national championship. Everyone wants
it. Everyone's hungry from this team. We're working
harder this year because we're undersized."
Despite losing four starters, UF hoped to be ranked
higher in the preseason.
"When I got the news (of the preseason rankings), I
called Kim Dye, our senior captain, and she was really
disappointed of where we were," Peck said. "That's
the mindset that they are in:
"I talk to them all the time about what's going to

LSU looks to play spoiler to UF's SEC title hopes
* THE TIGERS ARE LEADING

SEC) hopes to take a share of UF's
conference lead in Baton Rouge, La.
"(In) the mid-'90s, we were less
worried about what was on the other
side of the net as much as our side,"
Wise said. "We'd get in the middle
of the SEC season and start putting
in new wrinkles offensively."
Now,however, the Gators aren't
waiting until December for a mar-

said. "It's going to be a fun match."

people who you don't even know," Siler said.
"That's a real bad feeling."
Siler hasn't watched one college football
game this season. What will he be doing
Saturday evening should the Gators have de-
"Celebrating," he said matter-of-factly.
The Gators hope there will be plenty of that
the rest of the way.
UF is still in the thick of the national title
race. But if the Gators are to separate them-
selves from a caravan of fellow one-loss teams,
UF must impress voters and begin dismantling
opponents. This includes Vanderbilt.
But if nothing else, the Gators understand
their seniors will never have another shot at an
SEC title ring.
"This is a hell of a run for us,"-Smith said. "I
think it would hurt if we would come out with
anything less than an SEC Championship, the
champions. We've got to win it for those (se-
erees. When I got to his house and his mother introduced me,
the first thing he said was, 'Oh, shit.'"
But what about football? Even Notre Dame coach Charlie
Weis, when he recently appeared on "60 Minutes," divulged
that he uses profanity around coaches and assistants.
"Well now, why is that necessary?" Wright said. "Does
debasing someone's character and insulting their integrity
make them a better football player? I never understood why
coaches and players.don't play nice."
Hmmm ... maybe it's because there are millions of dollars
in revenue and job security on the line. Or maybe it has some-
thing to do with the physicality.
"Have you ever heard TV stations have to bleep out any-
thing during a curling event in the Olympics? No, because
avoiding vulgarity is a way of taking the high road."
But Mrs. Wright, curling isn't a contact sport.
"Who was that one receiver for the Vikings? Real good
player, real Christian. Oh yeah, Cris Carter did he ever cuss
on the field?"
All right, point taken. But we had to ask Roseanne Wright
one more question before wrapping up. How much com-
pensation would she have to receive to unretire and teach
Roseanne Barr some manners?
"Nothing there's no price," Wright said. "I've always
had people ask me, 'Hey, you've done this as a profession, and
you two have the same name?' Except I don't find it funny. In
fact, it almost makes me want to curse."
And with that, onto the picks!
Leading off at 57-23 is gambling addict and gay-porn
enthusiast Louis "I need to check the betting lines on the
Savannah School of Art and Design intramural water polo
matches" Anastasis, who believes his fantasy basketball team
is the greatest team ever assembled despite the fact that he is
losing to a guy who autodrafted.
Lagging in second with a 56-24 record like that plump
fourth-grade kid tr ing to leg out a single in kickball is Dan
"I have the softest touch for a big man" Treat, who contin-
ues professing his love for the Yankees, Indians and UConn
Huskies the women's team, of course. We expect to receive
several e-mails from Dan's daddy criticizing this column.
Hitting in the three spot with a mediocre 49-31 mark is
Bryan "Get me some good beer Coors or Natty Lite, please"
Jones, who wants to have Brevin Knight's children and eat
Batting cleanup with a pathetic 48-32 record-is the cold-
blooded Antonio, "a.k.a. Derrick Harvey without any of the
football talent" Gonzalez, who has purchased a triple-layered
sheepskin coat and inserted Cayenne pepper into his socks in
anticipation of 50-degree Tennessee temperatures.
In dead last with a piss-poor 47-33 record is Nick "I don't
know if Tiny Tim will approve of my Joey Ijjas fling" Zaccardi,
who is currently preparing for another sober weekend by
stocking up on Juicy Juice and putting the finishing touches
on his Ron Zook trivia card set.
