UF ADMINISTRATION


State board OKs Machen's tuition plan


By CHAD SMITH
Alligator Writer
csmith@alligator.org .

PENSACOLA UF came one step closer
Thursday to hiking tuition by $1,000 a year, af-
ter the Florida Board of Governors signed off
on UF President Bernie Machen's Academic
Enhancement Program.
The body that oversees Florida's 11 public
universities voted to add the program, which


will start raising costs for new undergraduates
this Fall, to its legislative agenda. The program
is expected to raise more than $30 million for
UF in its first four years, and board members
passed it unanimously.
State universities aren't allowed to set their
own tuition rates for most undergraduates, so
in an effort to earn more support for his plan,
Machen did not officially designate the new
charge as tuition. Neither the Bright Futures
Scholarship Program nor Florida Prepaid


would cover the cost.
The new money would
be used to hire 200 faculty
members and 100 academic
advisers, UF Provost Janie
Fouke said after the meet-
ing. She would like to see
new faculty members hired
Fernandez for high-demand classes.
"It's very important to
me that we address the roadblocks that our


students encounter," Fouke said.
Board of Governors Chairwoman Carolyn
Roberts, who expressed support for the plan,
said the board would "hold the university ac-
countable on every level" to ensure money is
spent the way UF officials say it will be.
If the Legislature approves the program by
May, UF's Board of Trustees will vote to make
it official, Fouke said.
The board will take an initial vote at its

Preacher's move


irks new audience


By KENT RUSSELL
Alligator Contributing Writer

Under the late-morning sun
shining through the lattice of trees
on the Plaza of the Americas, the
line for Krishna Lunch snakes
50-deep to the corer of Newell
Drive and Union Road. Students
and teachers cluster and wait for
their eggplant and rice.
Off to their left, Joey Johnsen
zips up his jacket and cears his
throat.
"Guys, I love you. I want your
souls to be saved," he brays.
Out wheezes a "Jesus, shut
up! Go back to Turlington!" from
the line.
"I want to tell you about the
resurrection!" Johnsen offers, his
torso sinking toward his knees
with the last word.
"I wake up with a resurrec-
tion every morning!" someone
proclaims.
Undaunted, Johnsen read-
ies for another afternoon on the


plaza. Last week, he took his
Bible and his message to the
Plaza of the Americas, leaving
the bustle of Turlington Plaza for
heathen, Indian-style lunching
and an audience that isn't going
anywhere.
"Guys, I love you. I want
your souls to be saved."

"It's going to appear foolish,"
Johnsen said about his preaching
and the anger it has aroused, "but
when I'm out here, the reason I'm
preaching in the plazaqis because
God wants me to."
About 10 months ago, the ink

Gamers, peddlers spend days in line for PlayStation 3


* SOME HOPED TO RESELL

Dozens of people camped out at
electronics and department stores


across Gainesville on Thursday
night for a chance to purchase
and then resell what
Student is arguably the most
Life advanced video game
console in history.
A few hard-core gamers will be
home this morning playing theii
new PlayStation 3, but most of the


campers said they hoped to sell the
game system online for upward of
$2,500.
At local stores the number of
people in line was much larger
than the number of available sys-
tems.'
Thirteen people camped out
in tents and makeshift forts at


the Gainesville Circuit City for a
chance to buy six game systems.
UF student Leah Nanni said she
had waited outside of the Circuit
City since Wednesday morning.
"Most of us don't care about
PlayStation 3," she said. "I would
never pay $600 for a video game
system."


The advertising major said she
hoped to purchase a system, which
she called an investment, so she
can sell it on EBay.
A sign taped to the wall listed
the name and line positions of the
13 people. She was No. 7.

Web site rallies support to save Sampson the cat


By JESSICA PALOMBO
Alligator Contributing Writer
A cat named Sampson under-
went a life-altering surgery, thanks
to his owner's Web design talent
and the kindness of strangers.
UF graduate Jonathan Reus, a
multimedia engineer at Shands,
solicited donations through a Web
site he designed to raise money


for his cat's operations. Combined
with revenue from a benefit concert,
the effort helped cover the cost of
Sampson's risky $2,300 surgery.
In February 2006, Sampson be-
gan repeatedly urinating outside
his litter box.
"He started peeing everywhere,"
said Reus. "I thought he was just be-
ing a jerk."
When Sampson stopped eating,


Reus got worried and took him to a
veterinarian. The vet told Reus that
Sampson had a deposit, similar to a
kidney stone, blocking his urethra
and needed emergency surgery or
he would die within hours.
Reus already had his own medi-
cal debt after breaking his back in
2005 and had been laid off from
a low-paying Web design job, so
paying for the surgery would not

In debt from recent medical expenses of his own, UF graduate Jon Reus collected donations for surgery
on his cat, Sampson, through a Web site he created.


be easy.
Within weeks, Sampson's symp-
toms returned. Reus brought him
back to the vet multiple times for
treatment, each of which cost about
$200, he said. Soon, he had racked
up more than $1,000 in credit card
debt.
"He never really healed properly
and was always howling and licking
his crotch," Reus said.
Unsatisfied with the treatment
Sampson was getting, Reus took
him to the UF College of Veterinary
Medicine, where he was diagnosed
with feline lower urinary tract dis-
ease and treated. Sampson's condi-
tion improved briefly but then wors-
ened because of the stress of moving
to a new home, he said.
About two weeks later, the day
he was hired by Shands, Reus said
he found Sampson having an un-
relenting spasm and rushed him to
Dion Osbome, an Ocala veterinarian
and graduate of UF's vet school.
"He said, 'OK, this cat is going
to die if you don't do something,'"
Reus said. Osborne referred him to
Gary Ellison, a professor of small
animal medicine at UF.
"He was worse than most,"
Ellison said of Sampson. His urethra
had been severely damaged because
of prior tube insertions.
Scar tissue had so narrowed his
passage that the cat lacked all blad-
der control.
Reus said the surgery, a peri-
neal urethrostomy, was described as
"kind of like a cat sex change." In it,
a cat's penis is partially amputated
and the urethra is redirected through
a larger opening, Ellison said.
With the surgery's cost at about

$3,000, Reus said he turned to the
Internet to raise money and aware-
ness for Sampson.
"I was working all day, and
when I got home I would work all
night on this," he said of the Web
site, which featured pictures of
Sampson, detailed diagrams of his
medical problem and scanned cop-
ies of his vet bills.
"Without the raised mon-
ey, it would have been
impossible."
Jonathan Reus
Sampson's owner

At first, he advertised the site
through an e-mail campaign. He
then created a banner ad and asked
people to post it on their MySpace
pages. Several local bands, includ-
ing Animal Collective, agreed to
post the ad, he said.
Finally, an aggressive flier cam-
paign targeted the Health Science
Center area of campus. Many
donors left messages on the Web
site, most of whom were college
students, he said. Some of the most
generous donors were professors
and animal care professionals.
Reus said the Web site and ben-
efit concert, Sampsonfest, raised
about $1,500.
Last month, Sampson returned
home a healthy cat and Reus posted
a message on his Web site announc-
ing his homecoming and thanking
all who donated money.
"I was praying for him to be OK,"
he said. "Without the raised money,
it would have been impossible."

COURTS

Judge drops charges against voting-rights advocate


By CLAUDIA ADRIEN
Alligator Contributing Writer

It took a judge just 15 minutes to
dismiss a felony wiretapping charge
against UF graduate student Charlie
Grapski.
Grapski a longtime advocate
for voters' rights expected to face
trial Thursday on charges of illegally
recording a conversation he had in
April with Alachua City Manager
Clovis Watson in the City Hall.
"I'm relieved, but the hard work
has just begun," said Grapski, who
is one of seven plaintiffs who filed
civil charges in May against Watson,
the city of Alachua and its mayor,
Jean Calderwood, among others.
Grapski now faces a possible appeal
by the State Attorney's Office.
Grapski and his supporters be-
lieve Alachua officials committed
election fraud in city races.
The plaintiffs accuse Alachua
officials of violating a Florida elec-
tion law, claiming misconduct in
Alachua's April 11 City Commission
election. Grapski says election

monitors were not neutral during
voting and committed a string of
violations, influencing voters' deci-
sions by wearing political T-shirts
and helping them fill out absentee
ballots.
His supporters also say public
record requests were denied. The
High Springs Herald reported of-
ficials have acknowledged that
one voting machine may have had
an error and that state-prescribed
"secrecy folders," which keep votes
private, were denied to absentee-
ballot voters.
In an interview earlier this week,
Mayor Jean Calderwood said she is
confident that the State Attorney's
Office will further prosecute any
wrongdoing.
"I feel that our city has done a
very good job," she said. "We have
never done anything in my opinion
to deserve some of the accusations
and statements Grapski has said
toward us."
Grapski's battle with Alachua
officials began in the spring. The
doctoral student and Alachua resi-

dent was running against Alachua
City Commissioner Bonnie Burgess
for a Florida State House seat. After
city elections concluded, Grapski
said voters ap-
proached him
S regarding elec-
tions complaints.
SWhat ensued
was a back-and-
I-'' .- forth between
SGrapski and city
Grapski officials. Grapski
had to renege his
campaign for state office because of
the felony charges.
Grapski argues he was denied the
right to view some public voting re-
cords. When he couldn't get records,
he confronted Watson, the city man-
ager, and recorded the conversation
in his office in City Hall. Three days
later Grapski was arrested. Watson
said Grapski didn't inform him he
was taping their conversation.
Watson could not be reached for
comment.
Levin College of Law professor
Joe Little represented Grapski in the


criminal charge and will represent
all the plaintiffs in the civil case.
"He is one of the most knowl-
edgeable and principled attorneys
in the state of Florida," Grapski
said about Little. "We've worked
successfully together in the past on
several things."
For Grapski, election controversy
isn't new.
Little represented Grapski in
a 1995 lawsuit charging then-UF
Student Body President John
McGovern and the honorary leader-
ship organization, Florida Blue Key,
for libel.
Grapski, then a master's stu-
dent in political science, ran for UF
Student Body president. But a day
before the Spring election, fliers of
doctored police reports appeared on
campus accusing Grapski of being a
child molester. A jury awarded him
$150,000 in damages.
Last year, Grapski sued UF
President Berie Machen for deny-
ing Grapski the ability to view e-
mail records discussing the admin-
istration's relationship to FBK.


He sought information about a
Student Government donation to
FBK to produce Gator Growl, the
student-run pep rally. Grapski said
the contribution violated a-Florida
statute that allows only all-inclusive
groups to receive Activity & Service
Fee money.
A judge threw out the lawsuit
against Machen, saying Grapski
didn't mention specifics about his
communication with UF
As for Thursday's ruling,
Grapski's victory may be the begini-
ning of an even longer fight.
Though the judge granted
a motion to dismiss charges of
felony wiretapping, Spencer Mann,
spokesman for the State Attorney's
Office, said the state is reviewing
two additional accusations of a simi-
lar nature against Grapski.
A trial date has not yet been set
for the plaintiffs' election allegation
suit.
"Despite all of the concerns of
public officials, the one thing I'm
confident in is that a jury's decision
tends to work," Grapski added.

Students commit time to beloved shows


SBy JESSIE COLEMAN

They joined together for the
kind of marathon that only com-
mitted viewers can endure, a 24-
episode challenge.
Austin Joiner, a UF integrative
biology freshman, and four friends
squeezed into his dorm room at 10
p.m. on a Friday in.August and
started the first Veronica Mars
episode.
Joiner is just one of many UF
students afflicted with chronic

tifully sacrifice sleep and sunlight
for a chosen show.

bathroom breaks and food. They
were sustained by two huge plat-
ters of baked ziti, a jumbo box
of Cheez-its, brownies, white
chocolate macadamia cookies and
Gatorade.
Early Sunday afternoon, Joiner
and his friends ran out of episodes
to watch. They left in a haze, brain-
dead and dry-eyed from hours of
staring, but still reeling from the
excitement.

but for the firt


time since starting the show, she has
other commitments.
When her Bible study decided
to meet on Tuesday nights during
Veronica Mars, which airs on the
CW after Gilmore Girls, O'Brien
panicked, but only briefly.
Thanks to Sony Giga Pocket tech-
nology, which allows her to record
cable TV to her hard drive, O'Brien
didn't have to make a choice.
She rests easy in Bible study and
records the show from 8:57 p.m. to
10:03 p.m., allowing a three-minute
cushion period. She won't miss a
minute of the show.
Like O'Brien, roommates
Kathryn Rathman and Silvana
luculano have yet to miss an episode
of their favorite show.
Last season, the roommates
faithfully watched the hospital
drama Grey's Anatomy and baked
chocolate chip cookies every
Sunday night. This season the shdv
moved to a busier Thursday night,
but Rathman and luculano watch
the episodes over the weekend.
They set up their DVR to record
the show every week, allowing
them to keep up with homework,
grades and Grey's Anatomy.

Taking things personally

For serious fans like Rathman
and Iuculano, the show is more than
mindless entertainment. They take
the drama personally.
For one hour each week, the
roommates are wrapped up in the
show and the characters. Sitting to-
gether in front of the TV, often with
the volume high to ward off distrac-
tions. they are silent and focused.
On co :nuiercial breaks, the emn.'-

when two patients were rushed in,

Sometimes, like when a piece of a
homemade bazooka exploded in the
hospital and killed a bomb squad
agent, they are shocked speechless.
The season finale in May brought
both of them to the breaking point.
When character Denny Duquette
died of heart failure, Rathman and
luculano sobbed. Rathman, a jour-
nalism junior, said she was inconsol-
able for 30 minutes.
They were apart for the episode
but called each other, crying, im-
mediately afterward. One
would gasp, "Oh my gosh!"
and the other would respond,
"Yeah I know," Rathman
recalled.
luculano reads the head
writers' blogs after e\ -
ery episode to under-
stand the creative
planning that drives
the show.
The obses-
sion with Grey's
Anatomy goes far
beyond the two
roommates. Like the
Gator Nation, the
Grey's Anatomy net-
work is everywhere.
When Rathman meets
fans in her classes or on cam-
pus, she feels an instant con-
nection.
"So many people watch it,
you can talk about it with just
about anybody," Rathman
said.
O'Brien has experienced a

O'Brien also gets emotionally in-
volved in her show, which stars a
Nancy Drew-like main character
who solves mysteries on her college
campus.
When Veronica Mars grapples
with a tough case, O'Brien struggles
along with her. She injects herself
into the show when explaining the
unraveling mysteries.
"We haven't really figured it out
yet," O'Brien said of an on-screen
rape mystery. "We don't know for

EdioJ inal
It's cold outside. Freezing. Arid then, randomly, it's not. If
you're anything like us, you're sick of wearing shorts to class
because it's warm and sunny in the morning, and then trudg-
ing back home through a new ice age. Thanksgiving break
couldn't come soon enough.
But in the meantime, don't miss out on the crazy happen-
ings in Gainesville and across the country. For your reading
pleasure, we've scraped them together for this week's edi-
tion of...



Darts & Laurels
We kick off with a won't-somebody-think-of-the-em-
bryos DART for Gov. Jeb Bush, who visited Gainesville
this week for the opening of UF's new Cancer and Genetics
Research Complex. "It looks really cool," he said of the six-
story research hub which is true. It does look really cool.
But in case Jeb didn't get the memo from his brother, science
is witchcraft. Especially stem-cell research.
For years, Republicans have campaigned to ban the use
of embryonic stem cells in laboratories, even when it could
produce life-saving cures. The religious right calls it murder
- and the president used his only veto in six years to stop a
bill that would have increased federal funding for research
sites like UF's new complex. But then there's Jeb, sipping
champagne with those baby-killing scientists.
What's next Republicans who believe in global warm-
ing? Heliocentricity? Gravity? No thanks. We like our con-
servatives old-fashioned, like the president. He supports
abstinence-only sex education for adults and claims
"the jury's still out" on evolution. That's more like it.
Speaking of complete lunatics, we toss a you-can't-be-
serious DART to O.J. Simpson, who's putting the finishing
touches on a book about how he would have killed his ex-
wife and Ron Goldman. You know, if he were the real killer.
Which he's not that bastard is still out there, and the Juice
will never stop looking for him. Never! But for now, he's
cashing in on his own infamy.
It sounds incredible, but it's no joke. To promote the
book, Fox will air a two-part TV special called "O.J.
Simpson: If I Did It, Here's How it Happened" later this
month. The book will hit stores the next day and we're
guessing it'll be a best seller. God bless America. We just
hope Michael Jackson doesn't follow suit with "If I Touched
Macaulay Culkin, Here's Where I Touched Him." We get
the shivers just thinking about it.
Finally, we toss a wave-of-the-future LAUREL to
Student Body President John Boyles, whose long-awaited
tuition survey is finally up and running. Sure, it's a little
biased the questionnaire begins with some very slanted
introductory facts but Boyles' survey is the next logical
step in Student Government. Why elect representatives
when we can haie government-by-opinion-poll?
At least 3,300 students have taken the survey so far, and
Boyles hopes to get 10,000 responses by Wednesday. That
would dwarf voter turnout in Fall's SG election and
probably produce a more representative sample of the
student body. A less Greek sample, anyway. And since
SBoyles won't take a position on his own, why not cut out
the middleman?
Imagine it: no Student Senate, no SG executive, just
online poll after online poll. Should UF welcome ESPN
College GameDay to campus? Vote here! What about cov-
ered bus stops, waterslides, free printing? Yea or nay? Best
of all, no more masturbatory er, celebratory SG ban-
quets. Instead, you'd get a congratulatory e-mail at the end
of the year, complete with the pornography of your choice.
Some day, every university will be governed this way.

Pay attention, all yoi
A according to The Princeton Review, UF's Warrington
College of Business ranks sixth among all business
colleges and second among public universities for
best overall academic experience. The Wall Street Journal
ranks our master's program for business administration 13th
in the nation.
Needless to say, a few of our university's multitude of
business majors will become chief executive officers and
a greater number will, in some way, be responsible for large
sums of money.
But as Spider-Man teaches, "With great amounts of
money comes great greed for even more ridiculous amounts
of money"
Sanjay Kumar, former chief executive of Computer
Associates International, was sentenced to 12 years in prison
earlier this month. Kumar orchestrated a $2.2 billion account-
ing fraud involving backdated contracts that artificially in-
flated profits. In 1998, this earned him a $330 million bonus.
Not too shabby.
Jeffrey Skilling of Enron was sentenced in October to
24 years in prison the second-longest sentence ever for
white-collar crime, one year short of former WorldCom CEO
Bernard J. Ebbers's 25-year sentence.
SSkilling, like Kumar, was guilty of lying about his com-
pany's financial state. In his case, Enrori collapsed under the
weight of the $11 billion fraud, and investors and employees
lost billions.
All so a few men could stand naked in front of the mirror,
flex their muscles and whisper, "God, you're powerful! Look
at you you're on fire, you man-lion!"
And don't forget women. Martha Stewart added three ta-
blespoons of insider trading and a pinch of blind selfishness
to her business dealings in 2002, when she sold her ImClone
stock the day before its value fell 16 percent.
Greed distorts the beauties and freedoms of capitalism.
With a little self-restraint, free markets can balance and dis-
tribute wealth butbecause it takes money to make money,

u business majors
its easy for capitalist societies to
become polarized. Their rich get
richer, while their poor get poorer.
And what about the opportunity
cost of corporate fraud on a global
scale? Professor Virginia Maurer,
director of Warrington's Center
Todd Portnowitz for Business Ethics Education and
Witz's Wit Research, said the broad effects of
letters@alligator.org corporate fraud include "a reduc-
tion of wealth for the lower and
middle classes, the erosion of social
order, poverty, corruption, disease and death."
Every day, more than 25,000 people die of starvation,
while tycoons like Kumar lie to pull in $330 million instead
of, say, $300 million.
What could cause such absolute neglect for the world
around you? Other than greed, Maurer points to "rational-
izations of all sorts including the proposition that you
deserve it and everyone else doesn't."
It may be hyperbole, but I group corporate fraud closely
with homicide, though it's even more cowardly on some lev-
els kind of like hiring a hit-man.
Big business's behavior reflects the entire American men-
tality. Business is our national religion.
Reebok just spent $28 million on an ad campaign fea-
turing the tagline "I Believe." Marketing is our modem art
see Andy Warhol. More and more, we buy products based
on attachments to a company's moral standards. Take Whole
Foods Market grocery stores, for example. Or "fair-trade"
coffee.
In a world where business leaders function like priests,
corporate fraud is the equivalent of a priest touching a little
boy. Only in this case, we're the little boys, and there are mil-
lions of us.

The mystery of Jarvis Moss' suspension
I'm puzzled as to why there's such a hush
surrounding the details of UF defensive end
Jarvis Moss' suspension. I've seen no men-
tion, in either the Gainesville Sun or the
Alligator, of exactly why he was suspended.
However, over the past three days, WCJB
TV-20 has emphatically claimed numerous
times on-air and online that Moss' sus-
pension, like Marcus Thomas', is for testing
positive for marijuana. Why is everyone else
trying so hard to keep this quiet?

of the community during his time in the
residence hall, but also one of the most re-
spectful students I've had the privilege of
interacting with as an RA. He was always
polite and friendly and, as far as I was
concerned, a consistent leader.
His behavior reflected his values. Having
attended a leadership speech by UF coach
Urban Meyer, I know the football team
shares those values and that's why I have
faith that Meyer's decision to suspend Moss
was in the best interest of both the team itself
and its extraordinary defensive end.

RA: Moss was kind, considerate leader
During my first semester as a resident as-
sistant in the Springs Complex, I had the tax-
ing experience of building a community on
a floor that housed several of UF's younger
football players. I can honestly say that UF
coach Urban Meyer has his work cut out for
him. But I'd also like to add that two players
in my charge set relatively good examples
for the others while in the residence hall.
One was Cornelius Ingram, and the other
was Jarvis Moss.
Moss was not only a-model member


White House's lies make war unpopular
In his Thursday column concerning the
relationship between the press and the mil-
itary, Patrick Barrett accomplished nothing
more than exposing his own naivete with
respect to the causes of our problems in
Iraq.
Barrett began his argument by asserting
that exposing the public to the gruesome-
ness of war increases dissent among the
population. With this point I cannot dis-
agree. In Barrett's view, this illustrates the


weakness of the American populace but
an alternative interpretation is that it illus-
trates our humanity.
In any case, the primary reason for the
current level of dissent isn't the constant
barrage of ugliness on TV it's the accu-
rate perception that our political leadership
has been consistently deceptive and has
grossly mismanaged the conduct of the war
from day one.
Anthony DeFulio

Stop making excuses for disaster in Iraq
Patrick Barrett's claim in his Thursday
column that military leaders choose tactics
"for hoi they'll play in the papers" might
make sense if the Bush administration
even remotely pretended to care how the
American public felt about the war in Iraq.
Even with the president's approval rat-
ings in the gutter and White House Press
Secretary Tony Snow working overtime to
spin the news out of Iraq in a positive di-
rection, the administration is sticking to its
guns literally and figuratively.
I, for one, am tired of making excuses for
our leaders and for our country. We really


stepped in it this time. Now it's time to fess
up and get out of Iraq while we still can.

Rules for drivers, walkers and cyclists
Lately, I've seen so many accidents and
near-misses that I feel the need to share my
advice to walkers, bikers and drivers on
campus. If you're a pedestrian, the cross-
walks are there to make your life easier. Use
them. Technically, vehicles don't have to
stop for you if you just run out into the road.
That's called jaywalking, and it's illegal.
Bikers, when you're in the street, you're
considered a vehicle and need to obey the
rules.of the road so stop for pedestrians
in crosswalks. Also, please don't ride in the
wrong direction in the bike lane.
As for drivers, please take the time to
check your blind spot for bikers before you
turn. I've seen two cars hit bikers this semes-
ter, thankfully with minimal injuries. Both
accidents could have been avoided had the
driver of the car bothered to turn his head
and check for a biker.

CAMPUS COMPETITION

Dorms decorate for prizes


By RENE PEREZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

Residents in select UF dorms have been working
diligently for the past week to put finishing touches
on decorations for today's Golden Gator Residence
Hall Decorating Contest.
The contest, which will take place from 3 p.m. to
5 p.m. today, is being held for the first time. It will
become an annual event put on by the University
Athletic Association's Marketing Department.
Residents from Beaty Towers will face off against
those from the Yulee Residence Area in competition
for the Golden Gator trophy.
The two areas will be judged on their decora-
tions in the categories of spirit, creativity and thor-
oughness of coverage, said Shane Combs, a UAA
Marketing Department intern.
The panel of celebrity judges will include about
10 to 12 student athletes, members from the UF
Dazzlers and Albert the Alligator.
A small group from each team will lead the
judges around their respective dorms and explain
their decorations.
The judges will then have one hour to decide
the winner, Combs said. The winning group will
be announced in the Alligator, on Gatorzone.com
and, hopefully, at the football game on Saturday,
he said.


Additional prizes will include the Golden Gator
trophy and a party on Dec. 2 for the Southeastern
Conference championship game. The party will
include free food, live music and a performance by
the Dazzlers.
"We wanted to make an event that you remem-
ber all through your life," he said. "Something that
will be once-in-a-lifetime."
Victor Martinez, a resident assistant at Beaty
Towers, said preparations have been going well
so far.
"We're really excited. Everybody wants
it to be as successful as possible."
Victor Martinez
resident assistant at Beaty Towers

He said that students involved in the contest
have been working really hard over the past week
to get ready.
Most decorations have been completed and will
be put up a couple of hours before the judging takes
place in accordance with the contest guidelines.
He said his team has been trying to feature as
many different sports as possible in the Beaty com-
mon area.
"We're really excited," he said. "Everybody
wants it to be as successful as possible."


Food drive preserves


Thanksgiving fare


By ADAM AMIR
Alligator Contributing Writer

To some Gainesville families,
Thanksgiving dinner will come
despite financial hardships. When
Caitlin Roberts was looking for a
Thanksgiving food drive last year,
she found that Gainesville lacked
one for local families. Using her
experience from service projects
in high school and her position
as a financial director for the UF
chapter of the American Medical
Student Association, Roberts
started her own.
"Unlike a canned food drive,
we split certain nonperishable
foods in each committee," she
said. "We wanted to collect the in-
gredients of a Thanksgiving meal
for each family. Publix provided


gift certificates, so every family
could purchase the perishables,
like turkey."
Food donations began two
weeks ago, and with the help of
more than 900 AMSA members,
more than $600 worth of food has
been collected.
The holiday bas-
On' kets will be delivered
CeAmpuS the Wednesday be-
fore Thanksgiving.
"It's insane how
much food we have canned
foods, pudding, cake mixes, stuff-
ing," she said. "I didn't expect
such a turnout."
AMSA teamed up with St.
Francis House, a nonprofit home-
less rehabilitation organization, to
deliver the Thanksgiving baskets
to local needy families.

Nintendo follows Playstation


By KRISTEN CASTRO'
Alligator Contributing Writer

Just in time for the holiday shopping season,
the Nintendo Wii makes its debut Sunday.
Equipped with built-in Wi-Fi capabilities, the
game download system Virtual Console, the Wii
Channel browsing screen, the Wii Remote and a
reasonable price tag, this game console may give
Sony's PlayStation 3 released today a run
for its money.
"It's a-freaking-mazing," said Rodrigo Gil,
21, who went to the Nintendo Fusion Tour to
play the unreleased Wii. "I had a lot of fun with
it."
With other new game consoles priced be-
tween $400 and $600, the Wii costs a fraction of
their prices at $249.99.
At about 8.5 inches long and less than 2
inches thick, the Wii is said to be the size of three
DVD cases stacked on top of each other.
The Wii's Virtual Console allows gamers to
download old games from the original Nintendo
Entertainment System, Super NES and Sega
Genesis. Also, GameCube game discs can be
used with the Wii.
The .console's Wii Channel allows users to
create their own avatar, access news and check


weather reports and forecasts.
Another feature of the new system is the
cordless and motion-sensitive Wii Remote.
Best Buy, Target,.Wal-Mart, GameStop and
Toys "R" Us will be selling the console.
Local GameStop and Toys "R" Us stores have
already sold out through preorders.
"It's a-freaking-mazing."
Rodrigo Gil
Wii enthusiast

Target will be receiving at least 30 consoles.
However, they expect to sell out the day of re-
lease, said Daniel Dickson, an electronics depart-
ment specialist.
With anticipation mounting, some gamers
have already struggled to preorder the Wii.
"Unfortunately, I couldn't reserve it for the
launch date," Gil said. "I already have the con-
trollers on reserve though."
On Sunday consumers will have the chance
to come to their own conclusions about the new
console that is, if they can get their hands on
one.
"Without a doubt, it will beat out the PS3 and
XBOX 360," Gil said.


Run benefits Shands kids


* RACE FOR THE CHILDREN
EXPECTS TO DRAW 50 TO 100.

By SARAH ORFINGER
Alligator Contributing Writer.

While other students are sleeping in on
Sunday morning, Elaine Speed will be one
of 50 to 100 students arid Gainesville resi-
dents running to benefit children at Shands
Children's Hospital.
The first Race for the Children 5K run,
sponsored by the Preprofessional Service
Organization and benefiting Children's
Mirade Network, will be held Nov. 19.
Race for the Children costs $10 per
person, and proceeds will directly ben-
efit Children's Miracle Network, said Oleg
Uryasev, service director for PSO.


Check-in for the race will begin at 8 a.m,
and the race will start at 9 a.m. The 3.1-mile
race will begin and end at Pony Field on
Gale Lemerand Drive and circle around
Lake Alice.
Anyone. interested in participating can
register online at www.psoraceforthechildr
en.com until Saturday or at Pony Field un-
til 8:50 a.m. Sunday. T-shirts will be given
to the first 25 people who register and will
also be available for $5 the day of the race.
Speed, a prepharmacy student at UF,
loves to run the course around Lake Alice,
especially if it benefits a worthy cause.
Receiving a T-shirt after the race is always
a bonus too, she said.
"Our goal is to spend less than we raise,
and we're probably going to spend several
hundred dollars," Uryasev said.
Uryasev hopes to raise $400 to $500.

Dustin Hall's girlfriend gave him an
ultimatum: Shave or say goodbye.
Hall's facial hair stayed.
"The choice is for the good cause over
the significant other in this case," he said.
Hall is one of about 40 UF law students
and professors who are abstaining from
shaving during November to raise money
for the Association of Public Interest Law,
said Brian Ellison, APIL's vice president of
fundraising.
Participants in "Mustache Bash 2006"
are sponsored with pledges, ranging from
10 cents to $3 per day. Ellison said the
campaign's goal is $20,000.
All money raised willfund scholarships
for law students pursuing pro bono work
in public interest fields this summer.
Club member Andy Munkittrick said
the cause led him to take his participation
to what he calls "the next level."
Munkittrick has promised his sponsors
a schedule of self-accessorizing that will
grow progressively more embarrassing as
higher pledge levels are reached.
So far, his outlandish promises have
helped raise more than $200. That means
he will wear sunglasses to dass and will


dye his brown mustache black. If he raises
$275, he will add a black patent leather
officer's cap to his classroom attire.
He said he attributed his success to the
fun spiritof the fundraiser.
"It's set up in a way that it doesn't feel
so much like a charity drive," he said.
The fundraiser has also attracted sup-
port from some law school faculty.
Professor Henry Wihnyk is growing a
mustache at the request of APIL members
in his class.
"It adds a nice community
spirit between the faculty and
students."

"It adds a nice community spirit be-
tween the faculty and students," he said. "I
hate growing facial hair, but I'll make this
sacrifice," he said.
Hall said he looks forward to seeing the
facial hair others have grown.
"This type of behavior coming from
people who typically are so concerned
with looking professional is nice to see,"
he said. "It adds a bit of levity to the law
school atmosphere."

The Dating Game


Universities sacrifice accuracy for prestige


By STEPHANIE GARRY
Alligator Staff Writer
smgarry@alligator.org

As universities go, older is better.
And according to the histories of UF
and rival Florida State University,
the once-women's school is the
elder.
That's because some public uni-
versities, in their zeal for the prestige
of age, have changed the date of
their, founding to extend their his-
tory.
For UF, the date hinges, on
the opening of the East Florida
Seminary in Ocala, one of Florida's.
two original'institutions of higher
learning t, receive state funds.
For FSU, it's the legislation
passed two years earlier to create
those first two colleges.
That discrepancy means that
Florida's oldest universities, which
were created by the same legisla-
tion and whose predecessors were
created as a pair, have different es-
tablishment dates.
Florida State University es-
tablished 1851. The University of
Florida established 1853.
This semester, UF celebrated 100
years in Gainesville with a ceremo-


ny, a time capsule and banners that
still adorn University Avenue. Three
years ago, it celebrated 150 years of
existence.
As UF revisits its past like
other universities nationwide that
have tweaked their founding dates
to satisfy historical or public rela-
tions needs- it becomes clear-that a
school's history isn't set in stone.
"Everybody does that in some
way or another," said John Thelin, a
historian of American higher educa-
tion at the University of Kentucky.
"It's just a question of how substan-
tive or thorough the reinterpretation
is.
Based on the 1853 date, UF held
a yearlong celebration of its 150th
birthday in 2003 at a cost of about
$200,000, said UF spoke-man Steve
Orlando. It begar. with a January
convocation attended by Gov. Jeb
Bush, boasted a special logo, and
was the occasion for three books.
Karen Willis, who coordinated
UF's sesquicentennial anniversary
three yeair ago, described it as an
opportunity for UF to "sound its_
own\ horn
But UF's founding date hasn't
always been 1853.
In 1935, President John Tigert


reviewed the record and decided
that the late UF bore on is seal
- 1905 didn't accurately reflect
the university's founding. So he ap-
pealed to the state to have it moved
52 years earlier.
"He basically picked the old-
est date he could find," said UF
.Historian Carl Van Ness. "I'm not
sure if he wanted the oldest date
or if he really thought that was the
accurate date for the founding of the
university."
The college that was founded
then bears little resemblance to
the UF we know today. Located in
.Ocala, it taught mostly high school
material to just a handful of white.
men for eight years before dosing
for the Civil War.
"Its early years in Ocala were
really nothing to brag about," Van
Ness said. "It was underfunded. It
really didn't amountto much."
But Van Ness agreed with Tigert
that Florida's higher education tradi-
tion began before 1905, so he thinks
the change was more justifiable than
FSU's switch a few years ago.
In 2000, then FSU President
Talbot "Sandy" D'Alemberte suc-
cessfully campaigned to change
FSU's founding from 1857 to 1851.


"I just think the whole contro-
versy on dates is a little silly, and
it doesn't make the state of Florida
look very good," Van Ness said. "I
think we just kind of all laughed and
shrugged it off."
Robin Sellers, an FSU professor
who wrote a book on FSU's history,
believes its founding-date switch
had little to do with historical accu-
racy, something to do with the UF-
S FSU rivalry and
a lot to do with
Public relations.
"I think there's
just that rivalry
that's always
been there. You
I. can't get away
Thelin from it," Sellers
said. "It's like
the Democrats and the Republicans.
They might be nice to each other on
the surface, but I.wouldn't expect
any deep feelings."
Van Ness said he's not sure
UF's current founding date 1853
- was the best pick. He thinks the
1870 chartering of another UF fore-
father, an agricultural school in Lake
City, would probably be closest to
the university's true beginning.
In his book on American higher
education, Thelin writes of a par-
ticularly egregious example of ma-
nipulation of a university's history.


In an attempt to further civic
pride, the mayor of Louisville led
a campaign in 1948 to push the
University of Louisville's founding
date to be 37 years earlier. According
to Thelin's book, "A History of
American Higher Education," the
mayor kept a list of universities
ranked by which was the oldest.
When he found evidence to move
the University of Louisville up on
the list, he would cry out, "We're
gaining on them."
Thelin said universities usually
have reasons for pushing back their
birthdays. Shifting dates can be ac-
curate because there's no definitive
standard for what constitutes a
school's origin. Is it the legislation
that creates a school, or the first day
of classes?
"It gets murkier the more you
look at it," Thelin said.
Thelin believes the reason uni-
versities and college value age so
much is because it shows they've
survived through years of change.
At inaugural ceremonies for univer-
sity presidents, representatives from
other schools line up in order of their
institution's founding date, with the
oldest first.
"Even though we as Americans
are forward-looking and modem,
we still take assurance at something
that survives," Thelin said.

Tuition plan needs legislative approval before increases are made


TUITION, from page 1


Nov. 30-Dec. 1 meeting to decide
whether it will support the program.
Board chairman Manny Fernandez
said in an interview that the pro-
gram would help UF offer a better
education for students.
Those students "deserve the kind
of education, in my opinion, we are
not giving yet," said Fernandez,
who called UF's class sizes "ridicu-
lously high."
In his presentation to the board


Thursday, Fernandez said the pro-
gram would improve UF's student-
to-faculty ratio, which is now 21-1.
It needs to get to 14-1, he said.
Machen spoke at the meeting via
conference call from Beijing, China.
He is touring Asia with a delegation
of other university presidents, who
are looking to attract more interna-
tional students to their institutions.
Machen told the board that he
welcomes input from UF's Student
Government in determining which
parts of the university need new
faculty members most.


"We have to get out of
this mode of feeling good
about being good."
Manny Fernandez
UF Trustee


Student Body President John
Boyles, the only student who sits
on UF's Board of Trustees, said he'd
wait for the Student Senate to vote
on the new charge before deciding
how he'll vote on the board. Before


that Senate meeting, SG plans to
host a forum for students to ask
questions or express concerns with
the plan.
Fernandez said many flagship
universities around the country
charge up to 200 percent more in
tuition than their in-state public
counterparts, Fernandez said. But
UP Florida's flagship university
- charges less money.than any of
the state's public universities.
Like other top universities
around the country, UF already has
talented students and faculty mem-


bers, Fernandez said. But, he added,
there aren't enough resources to pro-
pel UF into the ranks of the nation's
best institutions.
He said there are two ways UF
can deal with its lack of resources.
"You sit back and do nothing, or
the second choice is you do what
we're doing," he said. "We have to
get out of this mode of feeling good
about being good."
If the program passes, he said,
UF's Board of Trustees will need to
watch UF's applicant quality care-
fully.


Heckler gives sermon of his own


PREACHER, from page 1


sage to the unsaved. He'd heard that UF
had plenty of students and sunshine, so
he hopped a plane to Gainesville with
no idea where he'd stay or what he was
going to do.
Johnsen said the idea for preaching
on the plaza came early last week, when
he saw his friend A.J. Hall spreading a
Christian message on the Plaza of the
Americas.
"There seem to be a lot of non-
Christians there," Johnsen said. "I love
Krishnas, I want them to be saved, but
what they're worshipping is an idol ... a
made-up god."
For the past two weeks, .he has
preached to the slow-moving Krishna
queue an audience that is captive only
in the literal sense.
"I'm not against his freedom of
speech," said Stephanie Silberman,
a Krishna follower, during Johnsen's
preaching Monday. "If there was no
Krishna Lunch, no problem. But he obvi-
ously came because there's a line."
Johnsen wouldn't face a deluge of in-
sults if he approached people one-on-one
like Krishna devotees do, she said.
Because of his style of preaching,
Johnsen has drawn the ire of many.
"We're just generally annoyed he's
basically just yelling," said UF history
student Travis Mitchell. "It doesn't matter
what he's yelling, just that he's yelling."
While Johnsen was pacing and lec-
turing to the line on Monday, Mitchell


shadowed him, stifling Johnsen's words
with a reading from his modem Polish
culture book.
"All my life, all my life," Mitchell read
in a mock-preaching tone. "That's what
it says on page 74 of this book I have to
read."
"He made all my points for me,"
Mitchell said. "He said, 'Can you please
stop reading and bothering these people?'
I was like, please man, keep talking."

aloud, one of the
Krishna servers
handed him a mint
lemonade. The next
day, a server gave him
a free lunch and a pass
for another a gift, he
sohnsenaid, for standing up to
Johnsen the preacher.
Tensions between Johnsen and op-
ponents on the plaza boiled over on
Monday. University police were called
in twice, first by a heckler, and again at
Johnsen's request. No action was taken.
Johnsen said he understands that
people may find his style abrasive. But
his decision to preach to people en masse,
not individually, came from a verse in the
Bible that he said calls for it: "For after
that ... the world by wisdom knew not
God, it pleased God by the foolishness of
preaching to save them that believe."
"I don't want people to misunder-
stand me," Johnsen said. "Even when
they're threatening me, stealing my
jacket, saying they're going to have me
wake up in a hospital ... I do it for their
salvation."

Campers lounged outside stores for PS3


PLAYSTATION, from page 1

three men played a TV-and-video-game
setup that drew power from a BMW sedan.
Nanni said her brother Todd, who
was No. 1 on the list, weathered a storm
Wednesday night by draping a tarp over the
store entranceway as protection.
"It was just like when you were little and
you'd take the covers and make a fort," she
said.
A few miles away, at the Best Buy on
Archer Road, a group of more than 50 peo-
ple camped out for a chance to purchase one
of 24 "premium" and 10 "basic" systems.
The PS3 comes in two versions; a basic
system with a 20-gigabyte hard drive for
$499 and a premium system with a 60-
gigabyte hard drive and built-in wireless
networking capabilities for $599.
Both systems will play Blu-ray high-defi-
nition DVD disks.
Online, the consoles were priced between
$2,000 and $3,500 Thursday night.
The campers at Best Buy set up tents and
lawn chairs to rest and sleep on. One group
even brought a futon.
"I'll have been out here for 57 hours if I
make it," said No. 11 in line, Javier Arenado,
before correcting himself. "I mean, when I
make it."
Arendo, a UF marketing student, said
passersby sometimes acted rudely toward
the campers. He said some people would
snicker or yell things at the sidewalk dwell-
ers.


"Every single person has a look," he said.
"Some people ask how many people are in
line. We say '50' and then they say 'damn'
and have this look like.'I should have been
here earlier.'"
He said the Best Buy campers established
a system to handle the line order.
Every hour one of the campers would go
around and take role call. If a person missed
the role their name would be taken off the
list and they would lose their place.
"I'll have been out here for 57
hours if I make it."
Javier Arenado
consumer

Many campers used friends or relatives
to save their spot while they attended class-
es or went for food.
A camper also took pictures of everyone
in line holding a piece of paper with their
number for further evidence of their place.
Many of the people under the awning
Thursday night had camped out since
Tuesday.
Terrel Griffin, No. 9 on the Best Buy list,
was one of the few people who were buying
the system to play games.
"It's not about the money," he said.
"When my friends come over I'm going to
be the king and I'm going to be on top of that
hill for a few months."
Griffin said he also camped out for the
Xbox 360 last year.
Many of the first 34 people in line said

Thursday afternoon to purchase the new PlayStation 3.


they felt a little fatigued but generally
happy. Many of them also pointed out that
they wouldn't have to worry about getting
a system.
Past the first 34, about 20 others waited
in line in the hopes Best Buy would receive
more systems.
But Best Buy manager Steve Wilson said
he didn't think that's likely.
"There may be some wishing, but I don't
think we're going to get any more before
tomorrow morning," he said.


The shortage is a matter of supply and
demand.
"Sony doesn't really have that many
systems," he said. "They have a really short
supply."
But many of the system buyers were
banking on high demand and few consoles.
"Not to be a dick, but I hope they only
have 34. That way there's fewer on the mar-
ket," Arendo said, joking. "I want little kids
around the world crying 'Daddy, I want it
- whatever the man on eBay says.'"

UF meets UCLA in Sweet 16


By RACHEL ROBINS
'- Alligator Writer
rrobins@alligator.org

Ashlee Elliott resides in Corona,
Calif., less than an hour away from
UCLA's campus.
And despite attending Bruins
games before coming to UF, the
freshman never considered UCLA
in the recruiting process.
"I have never been a fan of
UCLA," Elliott said. "I'm actually
anti-UCLA. When I was little, I
never pictured myself going to
UCLA."
Elliott will return home, as the
No. 16 UF soccer team (14-5-5) will
face second-seeded No. 3 UCLA
(19-3) tonight at 10 in the Round of
16 of the NCAA Championship.
The last time these two teams
met, UF won a 1-0 double over-
time decision in the 2001 NCAA
Championship quarterfinal at
UCLA.
This time, the Bruins will again
have the home-field advantage,
but Elliott promises a flood of or-
ange and blue at Drake Stadium.
"I went to the Final Four last
year for UCLA (and there were) no
more than 100 fans in the stands,"
Elliott said. "(My family and

friends) are excited. They are get-
ting a whole bandwagon coming.
There are going to be more Gator
fans than UCLA fans."
The crowd might play a factor
in the game,
but what
ultimately
happens on
the pitch will
determine
which team
moves to the
Elliott quarterfinals.
The last
time the Gators advanced this far,
they lost to Florida State 2-1 in the
quarterfinals in 2003 as a No. 3
seed. Coincidently, the Gators also
have a "three" by their name this
season.
In the opening rounds of the
NCAAs, UF defeated Loyola 2-0
and Marquette 4-3 on penalty
kicks.
The Bruins have advanced to
the championship game the past
two years, losing both times.
"I think the soccer world would
probably consider us an under-
dog," UF coach Becky Burleigh
said, "but I think for us as a team,
we feel after competing with
Portland, Florida State, (North and
South) Carolina, I think that we


feel comfortable competing at that
level of teams where UCLA is. It's
going to be a challenging match
against UCLA, but I don't think
its something out of our realm to
accomplish."
UCLAhas strolled to the Round
of 16. It routed Nevada-Las Vegas
in the first round 6-1 and Cal State
Fullerton 3-1 in the second round.
"They've got a ton of speed up
front with Danesha Adams, but
we have speed to match that,"
Burleigh said. "We can attack the
way we want to attack because we
will have a nice surface. It's a good
draw for us."
To win, the Gators will have to
improve one thing that has haunt-
ed them all season defense.
"We are going to have to
defend well as a team, which is
something we have focused on all
season but especially last week,"
Burleigh said.
The winner of the UF-UCLA
matchup plays the winner of first-
seeded Texas and the defending
NCAA champion, Portland.
UF has never faced Texas.
Portland tied UF 1-1 in double
overtime earlier this season in
Gainesville. Because the Pilots are
unseeded, they would have to re-
turn to Gainesville to play UF

As the UF volleyball team
prepares for December's NCAA
Tournament, it's saying farewell
to the last remaining players
from its only national champi-
onship game.
Defensive specialist Rhian
Da vis and opposite hitter
Stefanie Douglas, members
of the 2003 team that lost to
Southern Cal in the NCAA title
game, will be honored on senior
day before Sunday's 1:30 p.m.
match against Kenturky.
Friday night at 7, the No. 7
Gators (24-2, 17-1 Southeastern
Conference) will face Tennessee.
AUF win in either match would
clinch a solo SEC title.
Tennessee has- given the.
Gators trouble recently, defeat-
ing UF three times in their last
six matches bo'; the \olunteer.-
and Kentucky are still vying for
NCAA Tournament berths
"There's a lot on the line for
all three teams," UF coach Mary
Wise said. "We're trying to put
ourselves in the best position
possible at the end of the year,
prior to the (tournament) selec-
tion show."
Since NCAA Regionals will
be held in Gainesville, Davis
and Douglas may have a chance
to advance to the Final Four un-
der the O'Connell Center lights
once again. In 2003, UF swept
Penn State at the O-Dome in the
regional final, an experience the
seniors said was one of the best
moments of their careers.
"This is silly, but I remem-
ber (middle blocker) Benavia
(enkins), because she was hurt,
just hobbled onto the court and
celebrated with us," she said.
"Just how excited everybody
was, I've never seen our team
that excited."
But in 2004, UF lost four se-
/ niors and needed to rebuild.
"I came in at the peak and
then had to learn what it was
like to start over," Davis said.
"(Since then), it's been interest-
ing to watch these players grow


as individuals and volleyball
players."
Davis -was a walk-on her
freshman year who later earned.
a scholarship and a significant
role on the team, averaging 2.83
digs per game this season.
"I've told her story in front
of a thousand (tryout) campers
the past few summers," Wise
said. "We didn't know who she
was until she
showed up in
iGators the O'Connell
S-4., / Center and just
impressed us
with her work
ethic."
But she'll most likely be
remembered. for sporting a
Mohawk in 2005. The abnormal
'do caused the Wisb Guys (UF
Volleyball fans' version of the
Rowdy Reptiles) to name her
Rufio after the. character in
"Hook" with the same haircut.
She said she's tempted to
bring the Mohawk back for se-
.nior night but isn't sure yet.
Douglas' collegiate career
has- been a tumultuous one,
as the natural middle blocker
played three different positions
while dealing with lingering
knee injuries.
"No one could have blamed
her if she said enough was
enough and the pain she dealt
with in her knees was too
much," Wise said. "And yet she
gutted it out."
Now backing up opposite
hitter Amber McCray, Douglas
is practicing this week at full
capacity for the first time this
season. When the season ends,
both plan to stay an extra year
at UF to finish double majors.
Volleyball is a future possibil-
ity for both, but neither have
specific plans.
"I have a couple friends
who play overseas, old Gator-
alumni players, and they have
a good experience with that,"
Davis said. "I don't know if
Europe's what I'd like to do.
It would be fun, but I haven't
decided whether I want to roll
that dice."

The Gender Bowl, a reality show set to air in December
on CoLours TV channel 9407 on the DISH Network
- pit.the best of what the NWFA has to offer against a team
of men.
The show depicts a group of men who tried out for a
football team, all along not knowing who they would play
against. On the day of the game, the men were told they.
would be facing a women's team made up of NFWA all-
stars. Though Lening would not divulge the result, she said
the teams were tied with 6 seconds left.
If only the Gators could be so lucky against Western
CaroliAia this week.
Onto the picks!
Sitting at the top with a 70-30 record is Dan "I'm beg-


going you, please make me an officer in the Gators volleyball
Facebook group" Treat, whose sexual preference has recent-
ly come into question due to his color coordination with one
man and love for another man's sweet singing voice.
Lagging in second place at 68-32 is the Romanian eat-
ing, speeding and hydroplaning machine Louis "Oh My!"
Anastasis, who spent'a night at an All-American Rejects
concert this week, screaming at a higher pitch than any 13-
year-old girl in his section.
Then he managed to drive like a teen-age girl right into a
guardrail on the way home. Apparently, his car was pissed
off at him for driving 6 hours to see the Rejects.
In third place and making .a late push at 64-36 is cell-
phone-Pac-Man addict Antonio "Do you know sign lan-
guage and morse code?" Gonzalez, whose final football
column will call out all every player on the UF roster, the
assistant coaches, the weight-room janitorial staff and the


Lincoln Financial cameramen.
Tied for dead-ass last place with a piss-poor record of
63-37 is Bryan "Where can I find a photo of Jarvis Moss
grabbing some ass?" Jones and Nick "Is it Tebow's ass?"
Zaccardi, who plan on hitting the bars after the game, ex-
cept Jones has to listen to 10 hours of voicemail from his
girlfriend and Zaccardi will head straight to his bunk in the
alligatorSports office.

UF MEN'S BASKETBALL

Gators learn from 29-point win


-. ... .2 -.
Tim Casey/ Alligator Staff
UF forward Al Horford gets fouled by Jacksonville forward Marcus
Allen while making a shot Thursday night.


By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
jmarina@alligator.org

Nightmares may soon plague UF's opponents
after what junior forward Joakim Noah plans to do
to them during the games.
"We're trying to have a mystique about us,"
Noah said. "We want us to be a team that when
people look at us, (they say), 'Damn, how are we
going to beat those Gator boys? Those Gator boys
are'for real.' We want people to fear us when they
step on the basketball court. ... When they're at the
Hilton hotel chilling, like the night before, we want
teams to have a hard time going to sleep."
While Noah may never know if Jacksonville had
to count sheep before its game against the No. 1 UE
men's basketball team Thursday night, it might be
safe to say that the Dolphins will be a little restless
after their 90-61 defeat.
Junior Al Horford led UF in an unbelievable
offensive first half, in which the Gators shot 79.3
percent from the field. Horford sank his first seven
attempts and tallied 17 of UF's 56 points in the first
half. He finished with 18 points, nine rebounds and
two blocks for the game.
While some may have been shocked at Horford's
tenacity, Noah wasn't surprised by his teammate's
performance.
"You could see it right before the game in Al's
eyes," Noah said. "He was so ready to go. He's a
bad boy."
Noah was right behind his teammate with 16
points, several of which came off of alley-oop
dunks aided by passes from juniors Corey Brewer
and Taurean Green.
"We smacked them in the first half," Noah said.
But that is where the smackdown stopped
because the break killed UF's momentum and


Jacksonville outscored the Gators 41-34 in the sec-
ond half.
"One of the things that was great for our bas-
ketball team tonight is there's not too many times
when you win by 25 to 30 points and you can learn
lessons," UF coach Billy Donovan said. "The second
half was a half where our basketball team was out-
worked. They were outhustled.
"I think so much surrounds our basketball team
about our talent level and how gifted we are and
how great we are. Here's a team with no much
physicality, not as much height, not as much depth,
and our team was totally outplayed the second
half."
Even though the Gators scored 90 points, the
most of the season thus far, somehow the score
seemed to be a little bit of a letdown.
"One of the things that was great for our
basketball team tonight is there's not too
many times when you win by 25 to 30
points and you can learn lessons,"
Billy Donovan
UF men's basketball coach

"(Donovan) wanted us to score a lot of points, he
wanted to break records," Noah said. "But basket-
ball is not played in one half."
The Gators came out sloppy and found them-
selves on the low end of a Dolphins 11-3 run. Noah
said he was disappointed with how UF played in
the second half and acknowledged that the Gators
need to maintain a certain level of intensity.
"We have to realize that when we don't play on
edge and hungry, we could lose to a team half as
good," Noah said. "I have a feeling (Donovan) is
going to practice us hard tomorrow."


Undersized UF hopes to fix rebounding in time for tourney


Gators could face two ranked teams


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

Even Carolyn Peck thinks the
Gators are nowhere close to where
they need to be.
That's what the UF coach said
in regards to boxing out and her
team's rebounding woes.
Ln both of th-Gators' losses this
season, including their exhibition
loss against Team adidas/Premier
Players, they have been out-
rebounded 107-83.
"The bottom line is we have to
box out," junior Depree Bowden
said. "We're short and we have
to go hit somebody. (We have to)


turn, face and actually hit some-
body and box them out. That's the
only way we're going to rebound
because everybody else is taller
than us. Everyone in the country
knows that."
Rebounding will be even
more paramount this weekend
as the Gators (1-1) venture out to
Malibu, Calif., for the Timeout for
flV/Aids Classic at Pepperdine
University, where UF will face at
least one and potentially two
- ranked teams. The Gators will
battle No. 18 California on Friday
night, and then face the winner
of Pepperdine/No. 14 Rutgers on
Saturday.
While the Gators are easily one


of the youngest teams in the nation
with just two seniors and Bowden
as the lone junior, they'll actually
be against a similarly aged oppo-
nent. The Golden Bears surpris-
4 ingly feature
only two juniors
and two seniors.
Facing a
team where the
majority can't
1s even legally

Bowden
yet, sophomore
Marshae Dotsoh said it will be
exciting and interesting to play
another young team.
The similarities don't stop
there, though. Much like the


Gators, California relies on the
play of its sophomore class. Alexis
Gray-Lawson was the Pacific-10
Freshman of the Year last season
and scored 22 points in the Golden
Bears' debut against Saint Mary's.
But while Gray-Lawson has
left off where she started last year,
the same can't be said for Gators
standout sophomore Sha Brooks.
After being named Second Team
All-Southeastern Conference. her
freshman year, and being named
to the Dreseason All-SEC team this
year, Brooks has somewhat strug-
gled out of the gates. Although
she's had spurts of explosive
scoring, which led to much of her
success last year, she's averaging
just 9.5 points per game thus far.
Brooks averaged 13.7 points per
game last year.


"We can't really rely on one
- person," Brooks said. "Everybody
has to score. ... I'm not frustrated;
it happens. I get the shots, it's just a
matter of knocking them down."
One of the players who stepped
up to help Brooks has been fresh-
man point guard LaToya Bullard.
Even though Bullard still struggles
with a back injury, she has shown
flashes of why she was a highly
touted recruit.
Bullard has played well enough
to take away minutes from senior
starter Kim Dye, Peck said.
"She's going to continue to
improve. :.. She does make a lot of
good things happen offensively,"
Peck said. "She even came down
(against Xavier) and pushed the
ball in transition and was able to
pull up for the jumper."


BCS chances hinge on Cal win, close Michigan-Ohio State game


ADVANCE, from page 28

Gators fits in Tallahassee. Not so anymore,
as the 5-5 Seminoles are one of the worst
FSU teams in decades.
No matter how you look at it, Western
Carolina will be a major hit in UF's No.
9 computer ranking that factors as one-
third of the BCS formula. And for this,
the Gators are paying the Catamounts


$425,000. UF would actually be better off
not playing Saturday.
"Early in the year is when you like to
play these games so you can get the young
guys some playing time," Meyer said. "I
think it's difficult to play them at this time
of year."
The NCAA did not approve the addi-
tion of a 12th game until April 28, 2005,
only giving the Gators so many options.
Regardless, Southern California
- which has leapfrogged the Gators into


the No. 3 BCS spot probably must lose
another game to offset UF's weakened
strength of schedule. The Trojans must still
play California (on Saturday),
Notre Dame and UCLA all
challenging opponents. Also,
Foo all "if USC wins this weekend
but loses to the Fighting Irish
next week, Notre Dame will
likely jump the Gators.
Then there's Saturday's much-publi-
cized battle of No. 1 versus No. 2 Ohio


State against Michigan. UF must root
against a close game so the BCS.doesn't
lobby for a rematch in the national cham-
pionship game.
The Gators' saving grace could be
Arkansas. If it can (No. 7 BCS) can get by
Mississippi State and LSU, UF could play a
top-5 team in the SEC title game.
"I think, at the end of the day, the
winner of the SEC Championship will be
playing for the national championship,"
Meyer said.

Meyer '90 percent' certain Siler won't play


* FRESHMAN BRANDON

By BRYAN JONES

UF linebacker Brandon Siler
will not start and probably will
not play at all Saturday against
Western Carolina, Coach Urban
Meyer said Thursday.
"I would say 90 percent he is
not going to play," Meyer said.
"It would be an emergency situ-
ation."
Freshman linebacker
Brandon Spikes will start in his


place.
Siler partially tore his MCL
in his left knee at practice last
Wednesday. He attempted to
play against South__CarQlina,
but was pulled during the game
after Meyer decided he wasn't
fit to play.
UF hopes to have Siler back
for the Florida State game next
Saturday.
The Gators will also be with-
out defensive end Jarvis Moss,.
who is suspended for the game
for an undisclosed violation of
team policy.
Freshman defensive end
Jermaine Cunningham likely


won't start, but he should get
a lot of playing time in Moss's
absence.
Senior
outside--- line-
backer Earl
Everett will
be a game-
time decision,
Meyer said.
slier Freshman
Dustin Doe will start if Everett
can't play.

PHASES OF FAYSON: Meyer said
he would like to get freshman
receiver Jarred Fayson involved
more this week, and maybe even


give him some time at quarter-
back.
"We'll get him a few reps at
some quarterback," Meyer said.
-'"e --L. -e i tangid up oft-and-

pretty healthy now, so I'd like
to see him play a little bit."
Fayson is the Gators' emer-

CLASS INTERFERENCE


Touted senior class hopes to replace turmoil with championships


By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Staff Writer
bjones@alligator.org

While most of the team was jumping
with excitement following the Gators' last-
second victory against South Carolina on
Saturday, seniors Dallas Baker and Steven
Harris embraced, fell to their knees and
wept, as if immune to the celebration raging
on around them.
"You kind of lose control of yourself in
those emotional times, and I think Steve
Harris and Dallas Baker after that game
- that's not phony stuff," Coach Urban
Meyer said.
For Baker, Harris, Ray McDonald and the
rest of UF's senior class, the last four years
have been a series of ups and downs an
emotional seesaw atypical of a group of
football players at UF.
"There's probably not a senior class in
the country that has been through as much
as this senior class," Meyer said.
Most came to the school with dreams of
continued success, but they all found them-


selves trapped in a freefall to failure and
mediocrity.
But under new guidance and a swift
change of attitude, this senior class is at-
tempting to erase the painful memories of
the past and rebuild the glory days of UF
football.
As Senior Day approaches this weekend,
a refocused group of seniors will play their
last game in the Swamp, but they know
their work at UF is anything but over.
"I believe that's a real sign of a team that
really wants to win and a team that won't be
denied," McDonald said. "No matter what
happens through the course of a game, you
know that seniors like that are going to fight
for the win. We didn't have that in the past
since we got here."

NOT SO HUMBLE BEGINNINGS
Like most UF football players, they en-
tered the school as superstars high school
phenoms seemingly on top of the world.
Many anticipated college as a steppingstone
to the NFL.
"When you come to college if any col-
lege player disagrees, then I have to judge
his character the first thing on your mind
is, 'One day I will be able to take care of my
family by playing in the NFL,'" Baker said.
But they were all recruited by former UF
coach Ron Zook with the promise of contin-
ued success.
Coming to a program as successful as UF,
they expected to win.
In the 12 years under Steve Spurrier
before Zook took over in 2002, the Gators
amassed six Southeastern Conference titles
and a national championship, finishing
each season ranked in the top 15.
Zook knew a foundation for suc-
cess was in place, and he ferociously re-
cruited players from all over the country.
In 2002, Zook held together a patchwork
recruiting class that began under Spurrier.
Still that class included DeShawn Wynn,
Reggie Lewis, Ray MiDonald, Jemalle
Cornelius, Kenneth Tookes, Steven Harris
and Tremaine McCollum.
In 2003, Zook found his Golden Boy.


The No. 1 player in the nation, accord-
ing to ESPN, quarterback Chris Leak had
set national passing records in high school.
He signed with the Gators, vowing to win
a national championship, and he convinced
several other top recruits to hop on board.
The Gators compiled a class of play-
ers that was heralded by most recruiting.
experts as the top recruiting class in the
nation.
Four years later, those players are still
searching for a championship ring.

THE FALL FROM GREATNESS
For Gators fans, it was the collapse of a
dynasty, and this current senior class found
itself at the forefront of it all.
When Spurrier stepped down in 2001,
the Gators had just finished a 10-2 season in
which they had come up just short of play-
ing for a national championship.
But in Zook's first season, UF managed
to win just eight games, its fewest total since
the pre-Spurrier days.
"A lot of guys who were here winning
left early and stuff like that," Harris said.
"You really had no one to look to. If you
don't have anybody to lead you, you don't
really know what to do. You're acting like a
chicken with your head cut off."
In 2003, despite Leak emerging as a
freshman sensation, the Gators finished
with a repeat of the 8-5 season from the
previous year.
By Zook's third year in 2004, the Gator
Nation was demanding results, and the
negativity began to weigh on the players.
"It took a big toll on us," Harris said. "It
was hard losing. And everybody started
pointing fingers and stuff like that, and
going our own separate ways. We weren't
really a team. We weren't together as a unit.
That is probably a big factor as to why we
were losing so much. It hurt to lose."
But after a controversial loss to
Tennessee,-UF's season and Zook's future
with the team began unraveling.
Baker blamed himself for the loss after he
received a personal foul penalty that helped
the Volunteers drive down the field for a


game-winning field goal.
Baker thought about giving up.
"It made me feel bad because I was al-
ready beating myself up," Baker admitted
last year. "I thought I lost the game by my-
self. I think I was harder on myself because
that is something that any player, even if
you're not coached that well, you should be
able to stop yourself from doing that."
The tough losses didn't stop there.
The Gators blew a late lead against LSU
three weeks later, falling at home 24-21.
But the most crushing loss would come
two weeks after that.
Unable to stop Mississippi State's Jerious
Norwood, who rushed for 174 yards, the
Gators were shocked by the Bulldogs 38-31.
Two days later, Zook was fired.
TURNING IT AROUND
When Meyer took over the reins of the
team in 2005, he was disgusted with the at-
titude of the team on and off the field.
It was a selfish team that lacked leader-
ship.
"You get away from home and you start
to see the freedom, so you start to make a.
couple of mistakes," Baker said. "You don't
take advantage of being at a top university
like this, and once you look back, it's too
late. So really, that's what we're basically
trying to eliminate around here."
But for players like Baker and Harris, it
wasn't too late.
Baker, who never dreamed of earning
a. college degree two years ago, is set to
graduate by the end of this semester.
Harris, who has been having constant
off-field problems, particularly trying to
deal with raising three children to two
different mothers out of wedlock, has also
turned his life around, according to Meyer.
He will also graduate.
"Coach Meyer came in and taught us
how to be accountable for one another and
taught us how to do things as a unit and do
things together to be a better team," Harris
said.
In fact, almost every senior on UF's ros-
ter has turned his career around in the last

line against Louisiana Tech in 2005.

two seasons under Meyer.
Running back DeShawn Wynn, a notori-
ous underachiever, earned his starting spot
on the practice field and has been UF's most
impressive tailback this season.
Reggie Lewis converted from the wide
receiver position and is now starting at
cornerback.
Corner Tremaine McCollum, a career
benchwarmer, is now UF's primary nickel
corner.
Center Steve Rissler, who was served as
Mike Degory's backup for the last three sea-
sons, is now the unquestioned leader of the
offensive line.
The list goes on.
"I'm proud of them," Zook said. "I talk
to some of them, but not every day. Coach
Meyer and his staff have done a great job,
and I am glad to see they're able to do the
things that we talked about when we re-
cruited them. I am rooting for them."
Meyer made it clear that for the Gators to
achieve success, the upperclassmen needed
to be leaders.
"I think the attitude has changed because
we've been together for the last four to five
years," Baker said. "And with Coach Meyer
pushing us, telling us that the seniors need
to become leaders and help this team out, I
think now everybody is starting to listen to

what he's saying."
"We're like one," Harris said. "We hang
together all the time. We laugh together. We
cry together. We do everything together.
We're like one big family."

ONE LAST CHANCE
After four years of high. expectations,
flashes of brilliance and misery of defeat,
the senior class is determined to make its
mark once and for all.
The Gators have already clinched a
spot in the SEC title game for the first
time since 2000 and at No. 4 in the Bowl
Championship Series standings, a national
championship is not yet out of the question
either.
For this senior class, all it takes to erase
the painful memories of the past is one good
stretch run and a ring or two.
"There's a lot of pressure on us," Harris
said. "I feel like there is a lot of pressure on
me, too, because it's my last year and I've
never won anything. So I wanna try to go
out and win everything.".
So when Baker and Harris embraced and
let their emotions go last Saturday, Meyer
was anything but surprised.
"That's a lot of emotions building up
over the last four to five years," Meyer said.
A lot of dreams crashed and burned. And
now maybe those dreams are still alive."

Catamounts amount to a crippling opponent for BCS voters, computers


W hy the heck are the Gators playing Western
Carolina?
And why at this time of the season?
Believe it or not, there are actually some reasonable
explanations as to why UF scheduled to play one of the
worst teams in Division I-AA on Saturday.
And as you might expect, there are also some greedy,
stupid reasons behind the 2-8 Catamounts' visit to the
Swamp.
The Gators, like every other team in Division I-A,
didn't know they would need an extra game this season
until April 28, 2005, when the NCAA approved a 12th
regular-season game but didn't add an extra week to the
schedule.
Schools scrambled to find opponents, and apparently
UF didn't scramble fast enough.
Senior associate athletics director Greg McGarity said
the University Athletic Association sent out e-mails and


letters to schools across the coun-
try asking if they wanted to play.
McGarity said colleges like
Middle Tennessee State, North
Texas, Arkansas State, Florida
Atlantic and Florida International
were among many the Gators
Antonio tried to host, but all already had
Gonzalez games.
Going Going Gonzo "We had interests in the whole
agonzalez@alligator.org college football world," McGarity
said. "Even top programs. With
the short time we had, there
wasn't much out there."
The main problem was that UF's schedule was al-
ready made. And Nov. 18 was the only open weekend
other than the week between Auburn and Georgia.
Struggling to find an opponent, the Gators were left


with pathetic Western Carolina.
McGarity said money wasn't an issue and that UF was
willing to pay well above the $425,000 it is dishing out to
Western Carolina.
But, in reality, money is the primary issue.
The Gators take in more than $2 million for every
home game, so they never considered playing on the
road.
"Playing away was never an option," McGarity said.
"We must have seven home games to balance the bud-
get."
I can understand that to some degree. The entire UAA
depends on football money.
But while balancing the budget might keep the UAA
afloat, it's going to kill the Gators' hopes of a national title
this season unless Southern Cal and Notre Dame each
lose the next two weekends.
It doesn't matter if UF defeats Western Carolina by 100


- the Catamounts will degrade the Gators' computer
rankings, which is one-third of the BCSformula.
UF had an opportunity to play a Division I-A school.
UAB offered to play two games in Gainesville for one UF
trip to Birmingham during the next several years. But that
would have cost the UAA money, so it declined.
In April 2005, a game against Western Carolina must
have seemed liked an afterthought.
But a weak year for the Southeastern Conference and
the Gators' regular-season schedule will likely finish
featuring just two ranked opponents, unless Georgia can
somehow crawl into the top 25.
Now it's November 2006, and UF is in the thick of the
national title race. Should the Gators win out and miss
the championship game, they will only have themselves
to blame.
But at least they'll have a little extra money in their
pocket.

The program is expected to raise more than $30 million for UF in its first four years, and board members passed it unanimously. State universities aren't allowed to set their own tuition rates for most undergraduates, so in an effort to eam more support for his plan, Machen did not officially designate the new charge as tuition. Neither the Bright Futures Scholarship Program nor Florida Prepaid would cover the cost. The new money would be used to hire 200 faculty members and 100 academic advisers, UF Provost Janie Fouke said after the meeting. She would like to see new faculty members hired Fernandez for high-demand classes. "It's very important to me that we address the roadblocks that our students encounter," Fouke said. Board of Governors Chairwoman Carolyn Roberts, who expressed support for the plan, .said the board would "hold the university accountable on every level" to ensure money is spent the way UF officials say it will be. If the Legislature approves the program by May, UF's Board of Trustees will vote to make it official, Fouke said. -The board will take an initial vote at its SEE TUITION, PAGE 11 Preacher's move irksnewaudence By KENT RUSSELL Alligator Contributing Writer Under the late-morning sun shining through the lattice of trees on the Plaza of the Americas, the line for Krishna Lunch snakes 50-deep to the comer of Newell Drive and Union Road.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2006 N ALLIGATOR, 3 Web site rallies support to save Sampson the cat By JESSICA PALOMBO Alligator Contributing Writer A cat named Sampson underwent a life-altering surgery, thanks to his owner's Web design talent and the kindness of strangers. UF graduate Jonathan Reus, a multimedia engineer at Shands, solicited donations through a Web site he designed to raise money L for his cat's operations. Combined with revenue from a benefit concert, the effort helped cover the cost of Sampson's risky $2,300 surgery. In February 2006, Sampson began repeatedly urinating outside his litter box. "He started peeing everywhere," said Reus. "I thought he was just being a jerk." When Sampson stopped eating, Reus got worried and took him to a veterinarian. The vet told Reus that Sampson had a deposit, similar to a kidney stone, blocking his urethra and needed emergency surgery or he would die within hours. Reus already had his own medical debt after breaking his back in 2005 and had been laid off from a low-paying Web design job, so paying for the surgery would not Tim Hussin / Alligator Staff In debt from recent medical expenses of his own, UF graduate Jon Reus collected donations for surgery on his cat, Sampson, through a Web site he created.

Deadline:Nov. 22 \ O wr t5 the indpendent florida be easy. Within weeks, Sampson's symptoms returned. Reus brought him back to the vet multiple times for treatment, each of which cost about $200, he said. Soon, he had racked up more than $1,000 in credit card debt. "He never really healed properly and was always howling and licking his crotch," Reus said. Unsatisfied with the treatment Sampson -was getting, Reus took him to the UF College of Veterinary Medicine, where he was diagnosed with feline lower urinary tract disease and treated. Sampson's condition improved briefly but then worsened because of the stress of moving to a new home, he said. About two weeks later, the day he was hired by Shands, Reus said he found Sampson having an unrelenting spasm and rushed him to Dion Osborne, an Ocala veterinarian and graduate of UF's vet school. "He said, 'OK, this cat is going to die if you don't do something,"' Reus said. Osborne referred him to Gary Ellison, a professor of small animal medicine at UF. "He was worse than most," Ellison said of Sampson. His urethra had been severely damaged because of prior tube insertions. Scar tissue had so narrowed his passage that the cat lacked all bladder control. Reus said the surgery, a perneal urethrostomy, was described as "kind of like a cat sex change." In it, a cat's penis is partially amputated and the urethra is redirected through a larger opening, Ellison said. With the surgery's cost at about /? \, ; ,,$3,000, Reus said he turned to the Internet to raise money and awareness for Sa mfpson. "I was working all day, and when I got home I would work all night on this," he said of the Web site, which featured pictures of Sampson, detailed diagrams of his medical problem and scanned copies of his vet bills. "Without the raised money, it would have been impossible." Jonathan Reus Sampson's owner At first, he advertised the site through an e-mail campaign. He then created a banner ad and asked people to post it on their MySpace pages. Several local bands, including Animal Collective, agreed to post the ad, he said. Finally, an aggressive flier campaign targeted the Health Science Center area of campus. Many donors left messages on the Web site, most of whom were college students, he said. Some of the most generous donors were professors and animal care professionals. Reus said the Web site and benefit concert, Sampsonfest, raised about $1,500. Last month, Sampson returned home a healthy cat and Reus posted a message on his Web site announcing his homecoming and thanking all who donated money "I was praying for him to be OK," he said. "Without the raised money, it would have been impossible."

4, ALLIGATOR N FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2006 Judge drops charges against voting-rights advocate By CLAUDIA ADRIEN Alligator Contributing Writer It took a judge just 15 minutes to dismiss a felony wiretapping charge against UF graduate student Charlie Grapski. Grapski -a longtime advocate for voters' rights -expected to face trial Thursday on charges of illegally recording a conversation he had in April with Alachua City Manager Clovis Watson in the City Hall. "I'm relieved, but the hard work has just begun," said Grapski, who is one of seven plaintiffs who filed civil charges in May against Watson, the city of Alachua and its mayor, Jean Calderwood, among others. Grapski now faces a possible appeal by the State Attorney's Office. Grapski and his supporters believe Alachua officials committed election fraud in city races. The plaintiffs accuse Alachua officials of violating a Florida election law, claiming misconduct in Alachua's April11 City Commission election. Grapski says election monitors were not neutral during voting and committed a string of violations, influencing voters' decisions by wearing political T-shirts and helping them fill out absentee ballots. His supporters also say public record requests were denied. The High Springs Herald reported officials have acknowledged that one voting machine may have had an error and that state-prescribed "secrecy folders," which keep votes private, were denied to absenteeballot voters. In an interview earlier this week, Mayor Jean Calderwood said she is confident that the State Attorney's Office will further prosecute any wrongdoing. "I feel that our city has done a very good job," she said. "We have never done anything in my opinion to deserve some of the accusations and statements Grapski has said toward us." Grapski's battle with Alachua officials began in the. spring. The doctoral student and Alachua resident was running against Alachua City Commissioner Bonnie Burgess for a Florida State House seat. After city elections concluded, Grapski said voters approached him regarding elections complaints. What ensued was a back-andforth between Grapski and city officials. Grapski had to renege his campaign for state office because of the felony charges. Grapski argues he was denied the right to view some public voting records. When he couldn't get records, he confronted Watson, the city manager, and recorded the conversation in his office in City Hall. Three days later Grapski was arrested. Watson said Grapski didn't inform him he was taping their conversation. Watson could not be reached for comment. Levin College of Law professor Joe Little represented Grapski in the criminal charge and will represent all the plaintiffs in the civil case. "He is one of the most knowledgeable and principled attorneys in the state of Florida," Grapski said about Little. "We've worked successfully together in the past on several things." For Grapski, election controversy isn't new. Little represented Grapski in a 1995 lawsuit charging then-UF Student Body President John McGovern and the honorary leadership organization, Florida Blue Key, for libel. Grapski, then a master's student in political science, ran for UF Student Body president. But a day before the Spring election, fliers of doctored police reports appeared on campus accusing Grapski of being a child molester. A jury awarded him $150,000 in damages. Last year, Grapski sued UF President Bernie Machen for denying Grapski the ability to view email records discussing the administration's relationship to FBK. He sought information about a Student Government donation to. FBK to produce Gator Growl, the student-run pep rally. Grapski said the contribution violated a Florida statute that allows only all-inclusive groups to receive Activity & Service Fee money. A judge threw out the lawsuit against Machen, saying Grapski didn't mention specifics about his communication with UP. As for Thursday's ruling, Grapski's victory may be the beginning of an even longer fight. Though the judge granted a motion to dismiss charges of felony wiretapping, Spencer Mann, spokesman for the State Attorney's Office, said the state is reviewing two additional accusations of a similar nature against Grapski. A trial date has not yet been set for the plantiffs' election allegation suit. "Despite all of the concerns of public officials, the one thing I'm confident in is that a jury's decision tends to work," Grapski added.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2006 U ALLIGATOR, 5 Living viCari Students commit time to beloved shows By JESSIE COLEMAN Alligator Writer icoieman@amigator.org They joined together for the kind of marathon that only committed viewers can endure, a 24episode challenge. Austin Joiner, a UF integrative biology freshman, and four friends squeezed into his dorm room at 10 p.m. on a Friday in. August and started the first Veronica Mars episode. Joiner is just one of many UF students afflicted with chronic television-program dependence -drama addicts who would dutifully sacrifice sleep and sunlight for a chosen show. Most students develop a weekly habit or worse, but Joiner said he only watches the show in bursts. But moderation was not a concern for Joiner and his friends when they started the season two DVD. They overdosed on 1,008 minutes of Veronica Mars. Joiner isn't as intense as his girlfriend, who traveled more than an hour to the weekend-long Veronica Mars binge, or his sister, who traveled about two and a half hours. He lefthis room once that morning for cross-country practice, but -jI he showed -true stamina once he returned to the group, g1 ou which paused episodes only for bathroom breaks and food. They were sustained by two huge platters of baked ziti, a jumbo box of Cheez-its, brownies, white chocolate macadamia cookies and Gatorade. Early Sunday afternoon, Joiner and his friends ran out of episodes to watch. They left in a haze, braindead and dry-eyed from hours of staring, but still reeling from the excitement. This fix brought to you by TiVo Kyla O'Brien, one of the dedicated viewers in Joiner's dorm room, said Veronica Mars has hooked her. O'Brien, a telecommunications freshman, missed the original airing of the first two seasons, but she didn't let that stop her. She watched them on DVD. With DVD-Rs, TiVo and other recording technologies, viewers can jump on a TV-show bandwagon at almost any time. And, if they have the willpower, they can stay faithful without. having to compromise other commitments. O'Brien's obsession began over the summer in Sanibel Island, Fla., on a vacation with some of the same friends who met in joiner's dorm room. Despite beautiful weather, they stayed in and watched the entire first season, pulling an all-nighter to watch the last 12 episodes. Now O'Brien jumps at the very mention of Veronica Mars. She talks about the show with wide eyes and emphatic gesticulations. "I'm a new fan, but I'm a strong fan," O'Brien insisted. O'Brien refuses to miss any season-three episodes, but for the first time since starting the show, she has othei commitments. When her Bible study decided to meet on Tuesday nights during Veronica Mars, which airs on the CW after Gilnore Girls, O'Brien panicked, but only briefly Thanks to Sony Giga Pocket technology, which allows her to record cable TV to her hard drive, O'Brien didn't have to makeea choice. She rests easy in Bible study and records the show from 8:57 p.m. to 10:03 p.m., allowing a three-minute cushion period. She won't miss a minute of the show. Like O'Brien, roommates Kathryn Rathman and Silvana Iuculano have yet to miss an episode of their favorite show Last season, the roommates faithfully watched the hospital drama Grey's Anatomy and baked chocolate chip cookies every Sunday night. This season the show moved to a busier Thursday night, but Rathman and luculano watch the episodes over the weekend. They set up their DVR to record the show every week, allowing them to keep up with homework, grades and Grey's Anatomy Taking things personally For serious fans like Rathman and luculano, the show is more than mindless entertainment. They take the drama personally. For one hour each week, the roommates are wrapped up in the show and the characters. Sitting together in front of the TV, often with the volume high to ward oft distractions, they are silent and focused. On commercial breaks, the emotions spill out. They ranted about wUsIy Dr. McDreamy's secret marriage in season one, and moaned in disgust when two patients were rushed in, skewered together by a metal pole. Sometimes, like when a piece of a homemade bazooka exploded in the hospital and killed a bomb squad agent, they are shocked speechless. The season finale in Maybrought both of them to the breaking point. When character Denny Duquette died of heart failure, Rathman and Iuculano sobbed. Rathman, a journalism junior, said she was inconsolable for 30 minutes. They were apart for the episode but called each other, crying, immediately afterward. One would gasp, "Oh my gosh!" and the other would respond, "Yeah I know," Rathman recalled. luculano reads the head writers' blogs after every episode to understand the creative planning that drives the show. The obsession with Grey's Anatomy goes far beyond the two roommates. Like the Gator Nation, the Grey's work Ii Wh fans in pus, si nectior "so you ca about said. O'B similar Mars. her r watche felt les united in a common addiction. O'Brien also gets emotionally involved in her show, which stars a Nancy Drew-like main character who solves mysteries on her college campus. When Veronica Mars grapples with a tough case, O'Brien struggles along with her. She injects herself into the show when explaining the unraveling mysteries. "We haven't really figured it out yet," O'Brien said of an on-screen rape mystery.

6, ALLIGATOR N FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 17,2006 Editorial It's cold outside. Freezing. And then, randomly, it's not. If you're anything like us, you're sick of wearing shorts to class because it's warm and sunny in the morning, and then trudging back home through a new ice age. Thanksgiving break couldn't come soon enough. But in the meantime, don't miss out on the crazy happenings in Gainesville and across the country. For your reading pleasure, we've scraped them together for this week's edition of WeDarts & Laurels We kick off with a won't-somebody-think-of-the-embryos DART for Gov. Jeb Bush, who visited Gainesville this week for the opening of UF's new Cancer and Genetics Research Complex. "It looks really cool," he said of the sixstory research hub -which is true. It does look really cool. But in case Jeb didn't get the memo from his brother, science is witchcraft. Especially stem-cell research. For years, Republicans have campaigned to ban the use of embryonic stem cells in laboratories, even when it could produce life-saving cures. The religious right calls it murder -and the president used his only veto in six years to stop a bill that would have increased federal funding for research sites like UF's new complex. But then there's Jeb, sipping champagne with those baby-killing scientists. What's next -Republicans who believe in global warming? Heliocentricity? Gravity? No thanks. We like our conservatives old-fashioned, like the president. He supports abstinence-only sex education -for adults -and claims "the jury's still out" on evolution. That's more like it. Speaking of complete lunatics, we toss a you-can't-beserious DART to O.J. Simpson, who's putting the finishing touches on a book about how he would have killed his exwife and Ron Goldman. You know, if he were the real killer. Which he's not -that bastard is still out there, and the Juice will never stop looking for him. Never! But for now, he's cashing in on his own infamy. It sounds incredible, but it's no joke. To promote the book, Fox will air a two-part TV special called "0.1. Simpson: If I Did It, Here's How it Happened" later this month. The book will hit stores the next day -and we're guessing it'll be a best seller. God bless America. We just hope Michael Jackson doesn't follow suit with "If I Touched Macaulay Culkin, Here's Where I Touched Him." We get the shivers just thinking about it. Finally, we toss a wave-of-the-future LAUREL to Student Body President John Boyles, whose long-awaited tuition survey is finally up and running. Sure, it's a little biased -the questionnaire begins with some very slanted introductory facts -but Boyles' survey is the next logical step in Student Government. Why elect representatives when we can have government-by-opinion-poll? At least 3,300 students have taken the survey so far, and Boyles hopes to get 10,000 responses by Wednesday. That would dwarf voter turnout in Fall's SG election -and probably produce a more representative sample of the student body. A less Greek sample, anyway. And since Boyles won't take a position on his own, why not cut out the middleman? Imagine it: no Student Senate, no SG executive, just online poll after online poll. Should UF welcome ESPN College GameDay to campus? Vote here! What about covered bus stops, waterslides, free printing? Yea or nay? Best of all, no more masturbatory -er, celebratory -SG banquets. Instead, you'd get a congratulatory e-mail at the end of the year, complete with the pornography of your choice.

The Wall Street Journal ranks our master's program for business administration 13th in the nation. Needless to say, a few of our university's multitude of business majors will become chief executive officers -and a greater number will, in some way, be responsible for large sums of money. But as Spider-Man teaches, "With great amounts of money comes great greed for even more ridiculous amounts of money" Sanjay Kumar, former chief executive of Computer Associates International, was sentenced to 12 years in prison earlier this month. Kumar orchestrated a $2.2 billion accounting fraud involving backdated contracts that artificially inflated profits. In 1998, this eamed him a $330 million bonus. Not too shabby. Jeffrey Skilling of Enron was sentenced in October to 24 years in prison -the second-longest sentence ever for white-collar crime, one year short of former WorldCom CEO Bernard J. Ebbers's 25-year sentence. -Skilling, like Kumar, was guilty of lying about his company's financial state. In his case, Enron collapsed under the weight of the $11 billion fraud, and investors and employees lost billions. All so a few men could stand naked in front of the mirror, flex their muscles and whisper, "God, you're powerful! Look at you -you're on fire, you man-lion!" And don't forget women. Martha Stewart added three tablespoons of insider trading and a pinch of blind selfishness to her business dealings in 2002, when she sold her ImClone stock the day before its value fell 16 percent.

Their rich get richer, while their poor get poorer. And what about the opportunity cost of corporate fraud on a global scale? Professor Virginia Maurer, director of Warrington's Center Todd Portnowitz for Business Ethics Education and Witz's Wit Research, said the broad effects of letters@alligator.org corporate fraud include "a reduction of wealth for the lower and middle classes, the erosion of social order, poverty, corruption, disease and death." Every day, more than 25,000 people die of starvation, while tycoons like Kumar lie to pull in $330 million instead of, say, $300 million. What could cause such absolute neglect for the world around you? Other than greed, Maurer points to "rationalizations of all sorts -including the proposition that you deserve it and everyone else doesn't." It may be hyperbole, but I group corporate fraud closely with homicide, though it's even more cowardly on some levels -kind of like hiring a hit-man. Big business's behavior reflects the entire American mentality. Business is our national religion. Reebok just spent $28 million on an ad campaign featuring the tagline "I Believe." Marketing is our modem art -see Andy Warhol. More and more, we buy products based on attachments to a company's moral standards. Take Whole Foods Market grocery stores, for example. Or "fair-trade" coffee. In a world where business leaders function like priests, corporate fraud is the equivalent of a priest touching a little boy. Only in this case, we're the little boys, and there are millions of us. Todd Portnowitz is an English junior. His column appears on Fridays.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2006 U ALLIGATOR, 7 L &tt ers 't -, t he Ed itor. The mystery of Jarvis Moss' suspension I'm puzzled as to why there's such a hush surrounding the details of UF defensive end Jarvis Moss' suspension. I've seen no mention, in either the Gainesville Sun or the Alligator, of exactly why he was suspended. However, over the past three days, WCJB TV-20 has emphatically claimed numerous times -on-air and online -that Moss' suspension, like Marcus Thomas', is for testing positive for marijuana. Why is everyone else trying so hard to keep this quiet? Brenden Doherty 4LS U E N RA: Moss was kind, considerate leader During my first seniester as a resident assistant in the Springs Complex, I had the taxing experience of building a community on a floor that housed several of UF's younger football players. I can honestly say that UF coach Urban Meyer has his work cut out for him. But I'd also like to add that two players in my charge set relatively good examples for the others while in the residence hall. One was Cornelius Ingram, and the other was Jarvis Moss. Moss was not only a model member of the community during his time in the residence hail, but also one of the most respectful students I've had the privilege of interacting with as an RA. He was always polite and friendly -and, as far as I was concerned, a consistent leader. His behavior reflected his values. Having attended a leadership speech by UF coach Urban Meyer, I know the football team shares those values -and that's why I have faith that Meyer's decision to suspend Moss was in the best interest of both the team itself and its extraordinary defensive end. Sydnor Richkind 4LS E U E White House's lies make war unpopular In his Thursday column concerning the relationship between the press and the military, Patrick Barrett accomplished nothing more than exposing his own naivete with respect to the causes of our problems in Iraq. Barrett began his argument by asserting that exposing the public to the gruesomeness of war increases dissent among the population. With this point I cannot disagree. In Barrett's view, this illustrates the weakness of the American populace -but an alternative interpretation is that it illustrates our humanity. In any case, the primary reason for the current level of dissent isn't the constant barrage of ugliness on TV -it's the accurate perception that our political leadership has been consistently dec grossly mismanaged the con from day one.

8, ALLIGATOR M FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2006 CAMPUS COMPETITION Dorms decorate for prizes By RENE PEREZ Alligator Contributing Writer Residents in select UF dorms have been working diligently for the past week to put finishing touches on decorations for today's Golden Gator Residence Hall Decorating Contest. The contest, which will take place from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. today, is being held for the first time. It will become an annual event put on by the University Athletic Association's Marketing Department. Residents from Beaty Towers will face off against those from the Yulee Residence Area in competition for the Golden Gator trophy. The two areas will be judged on their decorations in the categories of spirit, creativity and thoroughness of coverage, said Shane Combs, a UAA Marketing Department intern. The panel of celebrity judges will include about 10 to 12 student athletes, members from the UF Dazzlers and Albert the Alligator. A small group from each team will lead the judges around their respective dorms and explain their decorations. The judges will then have one hour to decide the winner, Combs said. The winning group will be announced in the Alligator, on Gatorzone.com and, hopefully, at the football game on Saturday, he said. Additional prizes will include the Golden Gator trophy and a party on Dec. 2 for the Southeastern Conference championship game. The party will include free food, live music and a performance by the Dazzlers. "We wanted to make an event that you remember all through your life," he said. "Something that will be once-in-a-lifetime." Victor Martinez, a resident assistant at Beaty Towers, said preparations have been going well so far. "We're really excited. Everybody wants it to be as successful as possible." Victor Martinez resident assistant at Beaty Towers He said that students involved in the contest have been working really hard over the past week to get ready. Most decorations have been completed and will be put up a couple of hours before the judging takes place -in accordance with the contest guidelines. He said his team has been trying to feature as many different sports as possible in the Beaty common area. "We're really excited," he said. "Everybody wants it to be as successful as possible." Food drive preserves Thanksgiving fare By ADAM AMIR Alligator Contributing Writer To some Gainesville families, .Thanksgiving dinner will come despite financial hardships. When Caitlin Roberts was looking for a Thanksgiving food drive last year, she found that Gainesville lacked one for local families. Using her experience from service projects in high school and her position as a financial director for the UF chapter of the American Medical Student Association, Roberts started her own. "Unlike a canned food drive, we split certain nonperishable foods in -each committee," she said. "We wanted to collect the ingredients of a Thanksgiving meal for each family. Publix provided gift certificates, so every family could purchase the perishables, like turkey." Food donations began two weeks ago, and with the help of more than 900 AMSA members, more than $600 worth of food has been collected. The holiday basOn kets will be delivered gg the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. "It's insane how much food we have -canned foods, pudding, cake mixes, stuffing," she said. "I didn't expect such a turnout." AMSA teamed up with St. Francis House, a nonprofit homeless rehabilitation organization, to deliver the Thanksgiving baskets to local needy families. -7w "'eIAL SATURDAY AFTERNOONS IN-OFFICE WHITENINGS FOR A DAZZLING SMILE ON SAT NIGHT 3 WAYS TO GET BRIGHTER: THE STUDENT SPECIAL THE GRADUATE or get a Ph.D. in Smile-ology DIAL D-R-S-M-I-L-E PREss 44 Seneae 0e1, 13af Set Dr. Bruce Larrick, DDS MOND--SAW A 7A 7 Sef.A I-E nd S5t.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2006 N ALLIGATOR, 9 TECHNOLOGY Nintendo follows Playstation By KRISTEN CASTRO' Alligator Contributing Writer Just in time for the holiday shopping season, the Nintendo Wi makes its debut Sunday. Equipped with built-in Wi-Fi capabilities, the game download system Virtual Console, the Wii Channel browsing screen, the Wll Remote and a reasonable price tag, this game console may give Sony's PlayStation 3 -released today -a run for its money. "It's a-freaking-mazing," said Rodrigo Gil, 21, who went to the Nintendo Fusion Tour to play the unreleased Wi. "I had a lot of fun with it.", With other new game consoles priced between $400 and $600, the Wii costs a fraction of their prices at $249.99. At about 8.5 inches long and less than 2 inches thick, the Wii is said to be the size of three DVD cases stacked on top of each other. The Wii's Virtual Console allows gamers to download old. games from the original Nintendo Entertainment System, Super NES and Sega Genesis. Also, GameCube game discs can be used with the Wii. The console's Wii Channel allows users to create their own avatar, access news and check weather reports and forecasts. Another feature of the new system is the cordless and motion-sensitive Wii Remote. Best Buy, Target,. Wal-Mart, GameStop and Toys "R" Us will be selling the console. Local GameStop and Toys "R" Us stores have already sold out through preorders. "It's a-freaking-mazing." Rodrigo Gil Wil enthusiast Target will be receiving at least 30 consoles. However, they expect to sell out the day of release, said Daniel Dickson, an electronics department specialist. With anticipation mounting, some garners have already struggled to preorder the Wii. "Unfortunately, I couldn't reserve it for the launch date," Gil said. "I already have the controllers on reserve though." On Sunday consumers will have the chance to come to their own conclusions about the new console -that is, if they can get their hands on one. "Without a doubt, it will beat out the PS3 and XBOX 360," Gil said. Run benefits Shands kids E RACE FOR THE CHILDREN EXPECTS TO DRAW 50 TO 100. By SARAH ORFINGER Alligator Contributing Writer While other students are sleeping in on Sunday morning, Elaine Speed will be one of 50 to 100 students and Gainesville residents running to benefit children at Shands Children's Hospital. The first Race for the Children 5K run, sponsored by the Preprofessional Service Organization and benefiting Children's Miracle Network, will be held Nov. 19. Race for the Children costs $10 per person, and proceeds will directly benefit Children's Miracle Network, said Oleg Uryasev, service director for PSO. Check-in for the race willbegin at 8 a.m, and the race will start at 9 a.m. The 3.1-mile race will begin and end at Pony Field on Gale Lemerand Drive and circle around Lake Alice. Anyoneinterested in participating can register online at www.psoraceforthechildr en.com until Saturday or at Pony Field until 8:50 a.m. Sunday. T-shirts will be given to the first 25 people who register and will also be available for $5 the day of the race. Speed, a prepharmacy student at UF, loves to run the course around Lake Alice, especially if it benefits a worthy cause. Receiving a T-shirt after the race is always a bonus too, she said. "Our goal is to spend less than we raise, and we're probably going to spend several hundred dollars," Uryasev said. Uryasev hopes to raise $400 to $500. New dinner concept arrives Cooking meets eating By LAUREN SACHS Alligator Contributing Writer College towns aren't known for home-cooked meals. But Gainesville's Let's Do Dinner would like to change that. The company, located on Northwest 22nd Drive, does the menu planning, shopping, chopping and mopping, according to its Web site.

FUNDRAISER Students grow hair for funds By JESSICA PALOMBO Alligator Contributing Writer Dustin Hall's girlfriend gave him an ultimatum: Shave or say goodbye. Hall's facial hair stayed. "The choice is for the good cause over the significant other in this case," he said. Hall is one of about 40 UF law students and professors who are abstaining from shaving during November to raise money for the Association of Public Interest Law, said Brian Ellison, APIL's vice president of fundraising. Participants in "Mustache Bash 2006" are sponsored with pledges, ranging from 10 cents to $3 per day. Ellison said the campaign's goal is $20,000. All money raised will fund scholarships for law students pursuing pro bono work in public interest fields this summer. Club member Andy Munkittrick said the cause led him to take his participation to what he calls "the next level." Munkittrick has promised his sponsors a schedule of self-accessotizing that will grow progressively more embarrassing as higher pledge levels are reached. So far, his outlandish promises have helped raise more than $200. That means he will wear sunglasses to class and will dye his brown mustache black. If he raises $275, he will add a black patent leather officer's cap to his classroom attire. He said he attributed his success to the fun spirit of the fundraiser "It's set up in a way that it doesn't feel so much like a charity drive," he said. The fundraiser has also attracted support from some law school faculty. Professor Henry Wihnyk is growing a mustache at the request of APIL members in his class. "It adds a nice community spirit between the faculty and students." Henry Wihnyk law professor "It adds a nice community spirit between the faculty and students," he said. "I hate growing facial hair, but I'll make this sacrifice," he said. Hall said he looks forward to seeing the facial hair others have grown: "This type of behavior coming from people who typically are so concerned with looking professional is nice to see," he said. "It adds a bit of levity to the law school atmosphere."

10, ALLIGATOR E FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2006 The eating Game Universities sacrifice accuracy for prestige By STEPHANIE GARRY Alligator Staff Writer smgarry@alligator.org As universities go, older is better. And according to the histories of UF and rival Florida State University, the once-women's school is the elder. That's because some public universities, in their zeal for the prestige of age, have changed the date of their founding to extend their history. For UF, the date hinges on the opening of the East Florida Seminary in Ocala, one of Florida's. two original'institutions of higher learning to receive state funds. For FSU, it's the legislation passed two years earlier to create those first two colleges. That discrepancy means that Florida's oldest universities, which were created by the same legislation and whose predecessors were created as a pair, have different establishment dates. Florida State University -established 1851. The University of Florida -established 1853. This semester, UF celebrated 100 years in Gainesville with a ceremony, a time capsule and banners that still adoiin University Avenue. Three years ago, it celebrated 150 years of existence. As UF revisits its past -like -other universities nationwide that have tweaked their founding dates to satisfy historical or public relations needs -it becomes clear that a school's history isn't set in stone. "Everybody does that in some way or another," said John Thelin, a historian of American higher education at the University of Kentucky. "It's just a qtiestion of how substantive or thorough the reinterpretation is." Based on the 1853 date, UF held a yearlong celebration of its 150th birthday in 2003 at a cost of about $200,000, said UF spokesman Steve Orlando. It began with a January convocation attended by Gov. Jeb Bush, boasted a special logo, and was the occasion for three books. Karen Willis, who coordinated UF's sesquicentennial anniversary three years ago, described it as an opportunity for UF to "sound its own horn." But UF's founding date hasn't always been 1853. In 1935, President John Tigert reviewed the record and decided that the date UF bore on is seal -1905 -didn't accurately reflect the university's founding. So he appealed to the state to have it moved 52 years earlier. "He basically picked the oldest date he could find," said UF Historian Carl Van Ness. "I'm not sure if he wanted the oldest date or if he really thought that was the accurate date for the founding of the university." The college that was founded then bears little resemblance to the UF we know today. Located in Ocala, it taught mostly high school material to just a handful of white. men for eight years before dosing for the Civil War. "Its early years in Ocala were really nothing to brag about," Van Ness said. "It was underfunded. It really didn't amountto much." But Van Ness agreed with Tigert thatFlorida's higher educationtradition began before 1905, so he thinks the change was more justifiable than FSU's switch a few years ago. In 2000, then FSU President Talbot "Sandy" D'Alemberte successfully campaigned to change FSU's founding from 1857 to 1851. "I just think the whole controversy on dates is a little silly, and it doesn't make the state of Florida look very good," Van Ness said. "I think we just kind of all laughed and shrugged it off." Robin Sellers, an FSU professor who wrote a book on FSU's history, believes its founding-date switch had little to do with historical accuracy, something to do with the UFFSU rivalry and a lot to do with public relations. "I think there's just that rivalry that's always been there. You can't get away Thelin from it," Sellers said. "It's like the Democrats and the Republicans. They might be nice to each other on the surface, but I wouldn't expect any deep feelings."' Van Ness said he's not sure UF's current founding date -1853 -was the best pick. He thinks the 1870 chartering of another UF forefather, an agricultural school in Lake City, would probably be closest to the university's true beginning. In his book on American higher education, Thelin writes of a particularly egregious example of manipulation of a university's history. in an attempt to further civic -pride, the mayor of Louisville led a campaign in 1948 to push the University of Louisville's founding date to be 37 years earlier. According to Thelin's book, "A History of American Higher Education," the mayor kept a list of universities ranked by which was the oldest. When he found evidence to move the University of Louisville up on the list, he would cry out, "We're gaining on them." Thelin said universities usually have reasons for pushing back their birthdays. Shifting dates can be accurate because there's no definitive standard for what constitutes a school's origin. Is it the legislation that creates a school, or the first day of classes? "It gets murkier the more you look at it," Thelin said. Thelin believes the reason universities and college value age so much is because it shows they've survived through years of change. At inaugural ceremonies for university presidents, representatives from other schools line up in order of their institution's founding date, with the oldest first. "Even though we as Americans are forward-looking and modem, we still take assurance at something that survives," Thelin said. Looking for a career instead of just a job?

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2006 U ALLIGATOR, 11 Tuition plan needs legislative approval before increases are made TUITION, from page 1 Nov. 30-Dec. 1 meeting to decide whether it will support the program. Board chainnan Manny Fernandez said in an interview that the program would help UF offer a better education for students. Those students "deserve the kind of education, in my opinion, we are not giving yet," said Fernandez, who called UF's class sizes "ridiculously high." In his presentation to the board Thursday, Fernandez said the program would improve UF's studentto-faculty ratio, which is now 21-1. It needs to get to 14-1, he said. Machen spoke at the meeting via conference call from Beijing, China. He is touring Asia with a delegation of other university presidents, who are looking to attract more international students to their institutions. Machen told the board that he welcomes input from UF's Student Government in determining which parts of the university need new faculty members most. "We have to get out of this mode of feeling good about being good." Manny Fernandez UF Trustee Student Body President John Boyles, the only student who sits on UF's Board of Trustees, said he'd wait for the Student Senate to vote on the new charge before deciding how he'll vote on the board. Before that Senate meeting, SG plans to host a forum for students to ask questions or express concerns with the plan. Fernandez said many flagship universities around the country charge up to 200 percent more in tuition than their in-state public counterparts, Fernandez said. But UF -Florida's flagship university -charges less money than any of the state's public universities. Like other top universities around the country, UF already has talented students and faculty membears, Fernandez said. But, he added, there aren't enough resources to propel UF into the ranks of the nation's best institutions. He said there are two ways UF can deal with its lack of resources. "You sit back and do nothing, or the second choice is you do what we're doing," he said. "We have to get out of this mode of feeling good about being good." If the program passes, he said, UF's Board of Trustees will need to watch UF's applicant quality carefully. Heckler gives sermon of his own PREACHER from page 1 sage to the unsaved. He'd heard that UF had plenty of students and sunshine, so he hopped a plane to Gainesville with no idea where he'd stay or what he was going to do. Johnsen said the idea for preaching on the plaza came early last week, when he saw his friend A.J. Hall spreading a Christian message on the Plaza of the Americas. "There seem to be a lot of nonChristians there," Johnsen said. "I love Krishnas, I want them to be saved, but what they're worshipping is an idol .a made-up god." .For the past two weeks, he has preached to the slow-moving Krishna queue -an audience that is captive only in the literal sense. "I'm not against his freedom of speech," said Stephanie Silberman, a Krishna follower, during Johnsen's preaching Monday. "If there was no Krishna Lunch, no problem. But he obviously came because there's a line." Johnsen wouldn't face a deluge of insults if he approached people one-on-one like Krishna devotees do, she said. Because of his style of preaching, Johnsen has drawn the ire of many. "We're just generally annoyed -he's basically just yelling," said UF history student Travis Mitchell. "It doesn't matter what he's yelling, just that he's yelling." While Johnsen was pacing and lecturing to the line on Monday, Mitchell shadowed him, stifling Johnsen's words with a reading from his modern Polish culture book. "All my life, all my life," Mitchell read in a mock-preaching tone. "That's what it says on page 74 of this book I have to read." "He made all my points for me," Mitchell said. "He said, 'Can you please stop readingand bothering these people?' I was like, please man, keep talking." As Mitchell read aloud, one of the Krishna servers handed him a mint lemonade. The next day, a server gave him a free lunch and a pass for another -a gift, he Johnsen A ft said, for standing up to the preacher. Tensions between Johnsen and opponents on the plaza boiled over on Monday. University police were called in twice, first by a heckler, and again at Johnsen's request. No action was taken. Johnsen said he understands that people may find his style abrasive. But his decision to preach to people en masse, not individually, came from a verse in the Bible that he said calls for it: "For after that .the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe." "I don't want people to misunderstand me," Johnsen said. "Even when they're threatening me, stealing my jacket, saying they're going to have me wake up in a hospital .I do it for their salvation."

12, ALLIGATOR E FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2006 Campers lounged outside stores for PS3 PLAYSTATION, from page 1 three men played a TV-and-video-game setup that drew power from a BMW sedan. Nanni said her brother Todd, who was No. 1 on the list, weathered a storm Wednesday night by draping a tarp over the store entranceway as protection. "It was just like when you were little and you'd take the covers and make a fort," she said. A few miles away, at the Best Buy on Archer Road, a group of more than 50 people camped out for a chance to purchase one of 24 "premium" and 10 "basic" systems. The PS3 comes in two versions; a basic system with a 20-gigabyte hard drive for $499 and a premium system with a 60gigabyte hard drive and built-in wireless networking capabilities for $599. Both systems will play Blu-ray high-definition DVD disks. Online, the consoles were priced between $2,000 and $3,500 Thursday night. The campers at Best Buy set up tents and lawn chairs to rest and sleep on. One group even brought a futon. "I'll have been out here for 57 hours if I make it," said No. 11 in line, Javier Arenado, before correcting himself. "I mean, when I make it." Arendo, a UF marketing student, said passersby sometimes acted rudely toward the campers. He said some people would snicker or yell things at the sidewalk dwellers. "Every single person has a look," he said. "Some people ask how many people are in line. We say '50' and then they say 'damn' and have this look like 'I should have been here earlier."' He said the Best Buy campers established a system to handle the line order. Every hour one of the campers would go around and take role call. If a person missed the role their name would be taken off the list and they would lose their place. "I'll have been out here for 57 hours if I make it." Javier Arenado consumer Many campers used friends or relatives to save their spot while they attended classes or went for food. A camper also took pictures of everyone in line holding a piece of paper with their number for further evidence of their place. Many of the people under the awning Thursday night had camped out since Tuesday. Terrel Griffin, No. 9 on the Best Buy list, was one of the few people who were buying the system to play games. "It's not about the money," he said. "When my friends come over I'm going to be the king and I'm going to be on top of that hill for a few months." Griffin said he also camped out for the Xbox 360 last year. Many of the first 34 people in line said Marvin Halelamien / Alligator Ben Cannon and Jake Frank "Shakey Jake" play guitar while waiting in line at Best Buy Thursday afternoon to purchase the new PlayStation 3. they felt a little fatigued but generally happy. Many of them also pointed out that they wouldn't have to worry about getting a system. Past the first 34, about 20 others waited in line in the hopes Best Buy would receive more systems. But Best Buy manager Steve Wilson said he didn't think that's likely. "There may be some wishing, but I don't think we're going to get any more before tomorrow morning," he said. The shortage is a matter of supply and demand. "Sony doesn't really have that many systems," he said. "They have a really short supply." But many of the system buyers were banking on high demand and few consoles. "Not to be a dick, but I hope they only have 34. That way there's fewer on the market," Arendo said, joking. "I want little kids around the world crying 'Daddy, I want it -whatever the man on eBay says."' 6ATOR BASTIDALI Saturday, November 8 r i d a vi.

26, ALLIGATOR N FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2006 UF SOCCER UF meets UCLA in Sweet 16 By RACHEL ROBINS Alligator Writer rrobins@alligator.org Ashlee Eliottresides in Corona, Calif., less than an hour away from UCLA's campus. And despite attending Bruins games before coming to U, the freshman never considered UCLA in the recruiting process. "I have never been a fan of UCLA," Elliott said. "I'm actually anti-UCLA. When I was little, I never pictured myself going to UCLA." Elliott will return home, as the No. 16 UF soccer team (14-5-5) will face second-seeded No. 3 UCLA (19-3) tonight at 10 in the Round of 16 of the NCAA Championship. The last time these two teams met, UF won a 1-0 double overtime decision in the 2001 NCAA Championship quarterfinal at UCLA. This time, the Bruins will again have the home-field advantage, but Elliott promises a flood of orange and blue at Drake Stadium. "I went to the Final Four last year for UCLA (and there were) no more than 100 fans in the stands," Elliott said. "(My family and friends) are excited. They are getting a whole bandwagon coming. There are going to be more Gator fans than UCLA fans." The crowd might play a factor in the game, but what happens on the pitch will determine which team moves to the Elliott quarterfinals. The last time the Gators advanced this far, they lost to Florida State 2-1 in the quarterfinals in 2003 as a No. 3 seed. Coincidently, the Gators also have a "three" by their name this season. In the opening rounds of the NCAAs, UF defeated Loyola 2-0 and Marquette 4-3 on penalty kicks. The Bd'ins have advanced to the championship game the past two years, losing both times. "I think the soccer world would probably consider us an underdog," UF coach Becky Burleigh said, "but I think for us as a team, we feel after competing with Portland, Florida State, (North and South) Carolina, I think that we feel comfortable competing at that level of teams where UCLA is. It's going to be a challenging match against UCLA, but I don't think its something out of our realm to accomplish." UCLAhas strolled to the Round of 16. It routed Nevada-Las Vegas in the first round 6-1 and Cal State Fullerton 3-1 in the second round. "They've got a ton of speed up front with Danesha Adams, but we have speed to match that," Burleigh said. "We can attack the way we want to attack because we will have a nice surface. It's a good draw for us." To win, the Gators will have to improve one thing that has haunted them all season -defense. "We are going to have to defend well as a team, which is something we have focused on all season but especially last week," Burleigh said. The winner of the UF-UCLA matchup plays the winner of firstseeded Texas and the defending NCAA champion, Portland. UF has never faced Texas. Portland tied UF 1-1 in double overtime earlier this season in Gainesville. Because the Pilots are unseeded, they would have to return to Gainesville to play UF Apparently, the Xbox Gators were as tired as the real Gators of hearing about how they don't win by enough points. Coach Urban Meyer decided to leave quarterback Chris Leak in the game untii late in the fourth quarter, and Leak shredded the Western Carolina defense for 347 yards and a ridiculous six touchdowns, as UF rolled to a 58-15 victory against the Catamounts in FA Sporn:"NCAA Football '07." Facing a weak Western Carolina defensive line, Leak routinely had enough time in the pocket to get some of his final exams done early before hooking up with one of eight different receivers. UF scored its first touchdown on a foUrth-and-2 play from the Western Carolina 34-yard line. Showing aggressiveness right off the bat, Leak threw to the end zone, where senior wide receiver Dallas Baker made a leaping one-handed catch. It was not only a big day for Leak, but for a bunch of seniors, as they went out with a bang in their last game in the Swamp, albeit against a completely overmatched opponent. Baker made defenders look silly with six receptions for 104 yards and three touchdowns. Fellow senior Jemalle Cornelius chipped in with two scores on 55 yards receiving. Kicker Chris Hetand went 3 for 3 on field goal attempts, including a 45-yarder, and defensive end Ray McDonald led the team with six tackles and two sacks. A successful possession for the Catamounts meant ahy time they were able to get the ball to their punter, as they committed six turnovers. They did wind up with 15 points in garbage time. The Gators on the other hand did not turn the bail over. Defensively, UF played a ton of soft coverage, but big hits applied by safeties Reggie Nelson and Tony Joiner led to a ton of dropped passes by Western Carolina receivers. Nelson knocked a couple of receivers into next week, which was fortunate for the receivers because they didn't have to experience the pain of another Nelson helmet to the sternum. While UF had virtually no running game aside from a 58-yard effort from Kestahn Moore, that was more out'of choice than ineffectiveness, as Meyer trashed his philosophy of having a balanced offense in favor of scoring points. Bryan Jones and Jennifer LaBrie / Alligator Staff Gators conclude season with 'Cats By JOSH-ARMSTRONG Alligator Writer jarmstrong@alligator.org As the UF volleyball team prepares for December's NCAA Tournament, it's saying farewell to the last remaining players from its only national championship game. Defensive specialist Rhian Davis and opposite bitter Stefanie Douglas, members of the 2003 team that lost to Southern Cal in the NCAA title game, will be honored on senior day before Sunday's 1:30 p.m: match against Kenturky. Friday night at 7, the No. 7 Gators (24-2, 17-1 Southeastem Conference) will face Tennessee. AUF win in either match would clinch a solo SEC title. Tennessee has given the Gators trouble recently, defeating UF three times in their last six matches. Boih the Volunteers and Kentucky are still vying for NCAA Tournament berths. "There's a lot on the line for all three teams," UF coach Mary Wise said. "We're trying to put ourselves in the best position possible at the end of the year, prior to the (tournament) selection show." Since NCAA Regionals will be held in Gainesville, Davis and Douglas may have a chance to advance to the Final Four under the O'Connell Center lights once again. In 2003, UF swept Penn State at the O-Dome in the regional final, an experience the seniors said was one of the best moments of their careers. "This is silly, but I remember (middle blocker) Benavia (Jenkins), because she was hurt, just hobbled onto the court and celebrated with us," she said. "Just how excited everybody was, I've never seen our team that excited." But in 2004, UF lost four seniors and needed to rebuild. "I came in at the peak and then had to learn what it was like to start over," Davis said. "(Since then), it's been interesting to watch these players grow as individuals and volleyball players." Davis was a walk-on her freshman year who later earned a scholarship and a significant role on the team, averaging 2.83 digs per game this season. "I've told her story in front of a thousand (tryout) campers the past few summers," Wise said. "We didn't know who she was until she showed up in tors the O'Connell Center and just impressed us with her work ethic." But she'll most likely be remembered for sporting a Mohawk in 2005. The abnormal 'do caused the Wise Guys (UF volleyball fans' version of the Rowdy Reptiles) to name her Rufio -after the, character in "Hook" with the same haircut. She said she's tempted to bring the Mohawk back for senior night but isn't sure yet. Douglas' collegiate career has been a tumultuous one, as the natural middle blocker played three different positions while dealing with lingering knee injuries. "No one could have blamed her if she said enough was enough and the pain she dealt with in her knees was too much," Wise said. "And yet she gutted it out." Now backing up opposite hitter Amber McCray, Douglas is practicing this week at full capacity for the first time this season. When the season ends, both plan to stay an extra year at UF to finish double majors. Volleyball is a future possibility for both, but neither have specific plans. "I have a couple friends who play overseas, old Gatoralumni players, and they have a good experience with that," Davis said. "I don't know if Europe's what I'd like to do. It would be fun, but I haven't decided whether I want to roll that dice."

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2006 E ALLIGATOR, 27 Gators learn from 29-point win Tim Casey/ Alligator Staff UF forward Al Horford gets fouled by Jacksonville forward Marcus Allen while making a shot Thursday night. By JENNA MARINA Alligator Staff Writer jmarina@aIligator.org Nightmares may soon plague UF's opponents after what junior forward Joakim Noah plans to do to them during the games. ."We're trying to have a mystique about us," Noah said. "We want us to be a team that when people look at. us, (they say), 'Damn, how are we going to beat those Gator boys? Those Gator boys are for real.' We want people to fear us when they step on the basketball court. .When they're at the Hilton hotel chilling, like the night before, we want teams to have a hard time going to sleep." While Noah may never know if Jacksonville had to count sheep before its game against the No. 1 UF men's basketball team Thursday night, it might be safe to say that the Dolphins will be a little restless after their 90-61 defeat. Junior Al Horford led UF in an unbelievable offensive first half, in which the Gators shot 79.3 percent from the field. Horford sank his first seven attempts and tallied 17 of UF's 56 points in the first half. He finished with 18 points, nine rebounds and two blocks for the game. While some may have been shocked at Horford's tenacity, Noah wasn't surprised by his teammate's performance "You could see it right before the game in Al's eyes," Noah said. "He was so ready to go. He's a bad boy." Noah was right behind his teammate with 16 points, several of which came off of alley-oop dunks aided by passes from juniors Corey Brewer and Taurean Green. "We smacked them in the first half," Noah said. But that is where the smackdown stopped because the break killed UF's momentum and Jacksonville outscored the Gators 41-34 in the second half. "One of the things that was great for our basketball team tonight is there's not too many times when you win by 25 to 30 points and you can learn lessons," UF coach Billy Donovan said. "The second half was a half where our basketball team was outworked. They were outhustled. "I think so much surrounds our basketball team about our talent level and how gifted we are and how great we are. Here's a team with noT much physicality, not as much height, not as much depth, and our team was totally outplayed the second half." Even though the Gators scored 90 points, the most of the season thus far, somehow the score seemed to be a little bit of a letdown. "One of the things that was great for our basketball team tonight is there's not too many times when you win by 25 to 30 points and you can learn lessons," Billy Donovan UF men's basketball coach "(Donovan) wanted us to score a lot of points, he wanted to break records," Noah said. "But basketball is not played in one half." The Gators came out sloppy and found themselves on the low end of a Dolphins 11-3 run. Noah said he was disappointed with how UF played in the second half and acknowledged that the Gators need to maintain a certain level of intensity. "We have to realize that when we don't play on edge and hungry, we could lose to a team half as good," Noah said. "I have a feeling (Donovan) is going to practice us hard tomorrow." Undersized UF hopes to fix rebounding in tire for tourney Gators could face two ran ke d t teams By BRIAN STEELE Alligator Writer bsteele@aiigator.org Even Carolyn Peck thinks the Gators are nowhere close to where they need to be. That's what the UF coach said in regards to boxing out and her team's rebounding woes. t i oth af s Gators' losses this season, including their exhibition loss against Team adidas/Premier Players, they have been outrebounded 107-83. "The bottom line is we have to box out," junior Depree Bowden said. "We're short and we have to go hit somebody. (We have to) turn, face and actually hit somebody and box them out. That's the only way we're going to rebound because everybody else is taller than us. Everyone in the country knows that." Rebounding will be even more paramount this weekend as the Gators (1-1) venture out to Malibu, Calif., for the Timeout for HIV/Aids Classic at Pepperdine University, where UF will face at least one -and potentially two -ranked teams. The Gators will battle No. 18 California on Friday night, and then face the winner of Pepperdine/No. 14 Rutgers on Saturday. While the Gators are easily one of the youngest teams in the nation with just two seniors and Bowden as the lone junior, they'll actually be against a similarly aged opponent. The Golden Bears -surprisingly -feature only two juniors and two seniors. Facing a team where the majority can't even legally drink alcohol yet, sophomore Marshae Dotson said it will be exciting and interesting to play another young team. The similarities don't stop there, though. Much like the Gators, California relies on the play of its sophomore class. Alexis Gray-Lawson was the Pacific-10 Freshman of the Year last season and scored 22 points in the Golden Bears' debut against Saint Mary's. But while Gray-Lawson has left off where she started last year, the same can't be said for Gators standout sophomore Sha Brooks. After being named Second Team All-Southeastern Conference her freshman year, and being named to the Dreseason All-SEC team this year, Brooks has somewhat struggled out of the gates. Although she's had spurts of explosive scoring, which led to much of her success last year, she's averaging just 9.5 points per game thus far. Brooks averaged 13.7 points per game last year. "We can't really rely on one person," Brooks said. "Everybody has to score. .I'm not frustrated; it happens. I get the shots, it's just a matter of knocking them down." One of the players who stepped up to help Brooks has been freshman 'point guard LaToya Bullard. Even though Bullard still struggles with a back injury, she has shown flashes of why she was a highly touted recruit. Bullard has played well enough to take away minutes from senior starter Kim Dye, Peck said. "She's going to continue to improve. :. She does make a lot of good things happen offensively," Peck said. "She even came down (against Xavier) and pushed the ball in transition and was able to pull up for the jumper." BCS chances hinge on Cal win, close Michigan-Ohio State game ADVA NCE from page 28 Gators fits in Tallahassee. Not so anymore, as the 5-5 Seminoles are one of the worst FSU teams in decades. No matter how you look at it, Western Carolina will be a major hit in UF's No. 9 computer ranking that factors as onethird of the BCS formula. And for this, the Gators are paying the Catamounts $425,000. UF would actually be better off not playing Saturday. "Early in the year is when you like to play these games so you can get the young guys some playing time," Meyer said. "I think it's difficult to play them at this time of year." The NCAA did not approve the addition of a 12th game until April 28, 2005, only giving the Gators so many options. Regardless, Southern California -which has leapfrogged the Gators into the No. 3 BCS spot -probably must lose another game to offset UF's weakened strength of schedule. The Trojans must still play California (on Saturday), V > Notre Dame and UCLA -all challenging opponents. Also, F0 1if USC wins this weekend but loses to the Fighting Irish next week, Notre Dame will likely jump the Gators. Then there's Saturday's much-publicized battle of No. 1 versus No. 2 -Ohio State against Michigan. UF must root against a close game so the BCS doesn't lobby for a rematch in the national hampionship game. The Gators' saving grace could be Arkansas. If it can (No. 7 BCS) can get by Mississippi State and LSU, UF could play a top-5 team in the SEC title game. "I think, at the end of the day, the winner of the SEC Championship will be playing for the national championship," Meyer said. Bowden

Or so the alligatorSports Brand Picks Column thought. But the National Women's Football Association has been around for seven seasons, ballooning to more than 40 teams. The tackle football league's expansion includes Gainesville, where the team slated to begin play in 2007 continues its open tryouts on Dec. 9. At Northeast Park, 400 N.E. 16th Ave., from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., women will get down and dirty. .About 15 women tried out in a recent session, with 20 more standing on the sidelines, perusing the play to see if they want in. Detby Lening, vice president of the league, believes her teams are for real. But can they hang with UF's opponent this week, Division I-AA Western Carolina? "I think the women could beat them," Lening said. "We've got some real players in our league." She's also called out Gators kicker' Chris Hetland, who has made 3-of-lO field goals this year. As the Gainesville franchise looks for a kicker, it will expect somebody who can make a 30-yard field goal. "I don't think she could be worse," Lening said. "I think she would be better than that. We'll take on anybody." Anybody including Big Brother -the NFL. "One year we had the SupHer Bowl," said Lening, referring to the league's championship game. "The NFL did not like it. We can't do that anymore." They're taking on men's football teams, too.

Of the 50 major college football games on the Saturday docket, the Western CarolinaUF game was the last one to receive a spread. Oddsmakers were having trouble deciding how gargantuan of an advantage to give the Gators. On Wednesday, they finally settled on a 48-point spread, easily the biggest disparity of the weekend. This is terrible news for Gators fans hoping for a trip to the national championship game in Glendale; Ariz. "We just have to win our 10th game. And if someone wants to take a shot at the Schedule, have fun doing that. I'd compare it to anyone else's." Urban Meyer UF football coach Now No. 4 in the Bowl Championship Series, UF could plummet in the standings after playing a Division I-AA team that has lost eight consecutive games. Included in the losing streak is a 35-7 thrashing by the powerhouse that is Wofford and a 31-9 home embarrassment at the hands of mighty Appalachian State. Western Carolina is ranked No. 206 out. of 241 Division I teams in the Sagarin computer rankings. "Is it a major hit in the computers? I "Copyrighted Materialdr Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" don't know," UF coach Urban Meyer said. "We just have to win our 10th game. And if someone wants to take a shot at the schedule, have fun doing that. I'd compare it to anyone else's." It used to be impressive, anyway. Prior to the season,-you couldn't blame UF for scheduling the Catamounts. Once upon a time, the Gators were staring down a four-game gauntlet that was supposed to feature four top-25 teams -Alabama, LSU, Auburn and Georgia. But neither Alabama nor Georgia was ranked when UF played them, and both have suffered abysmal seasons. If nothing else, UF thought it could count on Florida State, a perennial rival that has always given the SEE ADVANCE, PAGE 27 Meyer '90 percent' certain Siler won't play E FRESHMAN BRANDON SPIKES WILL START. By BRYAN JONES Alligator Staff Writer bjones@allgator.org UF linebacker Brandon Siler will not start and probably will not play at all Saturday against Western Carolina, Coach Urban Meyer said Thursday. "I would say 90 percent he is not going to play," Meyer said. "It would be an emergency situation." Freshman linebacker Brandon Spikes will start in his place. Siler partially tore his MCL in his left knee at practice last Wednesday. He attempted to play against South Carolina, but was pulled during the game after Meyer decided he wasn't fit to play. UF hopes to have Siler back for the Florida State game next Saturday. The Gators will also be without defensive end Jarvis Moss,. who is suspended for the game for an undisclosed violation of team policy. Freshman defensive end Jermaine Cunningham likely won't start, but he should get give him some time at quartera lot of playing time in Moss's back. absence.

"You kind of lose control of yourself in those emotional times, and I think Steve Harris and Dallas Baker after that game -that's not phony stuff," Coach Urban Meyer said. For Baker, Harris, Ray McDonald and the rest of UF's senior class, the last four years havebeen a series of ups and downs -an emotional seesaw atypical of a group of football players at UF. "There's probably not a senior class in the country that has been through as much as this senior class," Meyer said. Most came to the school with dreams of continued success, but they all found themselves trapped in a freefall to failure and mediocrity. But undernew guidance anda swift change of attitude, this senior class is attempting to erase the painful memories of the past and rebuild the glory days of UF football. As Senior Day approaches this weekend, a refocused group of seniors will play their last game in the Swamp, but they know their work at UF is anything but over. "I believe that's a real sign of a team that really wants to win and a team that won't be denied," McDonald said. "No matter what happens through the course of a game, you know that seniors like that are going to fight for the win. We didn't have that in the past since we got here." NOT SO HUMBLE BEGINNINGS Like most UF football players, they enteredthe school-as superstars -highschool phenoms seemingly on top of the world. Many anticipated college asa steppingstone to the NFL. "When you come to college -ifanyacollege player disagrees, then I have to judge his character.thefirstthing on your mind is, 'One day Itwill be able to take care of my family by playing in the NFL,"' Baker said. But they were all recruited by former UF coach Ron Zook with the promise of continued success. Coming to a program as successful as UF, they expected to win. In the 12 years under Steve Spurrier before Zook took over in 2002, the Gators amassed six Southeastern Conference titles and a national championship, finishing each season ranked in the top 15. Zook knew a foundation for suecess was in place, and he ferociously recruited players from all over the country. In 2002, Zook held together a patchwork recruiting class that began under Spurrier. Still that class included DeShawn Wynn, Reggie Lewis, Ray McDonald, Jemalle Cornelius, Kenneth Tookes, Steven Harris and Temaine McCollum. In 2003, Zook found his Golden Boy. The No. 1 player in the nation, according to ESPN, quarterback Chris Leak had set national passing records in high school. He signed with the Gators, vowing to win a national championship,and he convinced several other top recruitsto hop on board. The Gators compiled a class of players that was heralded by most recruiting experts as the top recruiting class in the' nation. Four years later, those players are still searching for a championship ring. THE FALL FROM GREATNESS For Gators fans, it was the collapse of a dynasty,and this currenttsenior class found itself at the forefront of it all. When Spurrier stepped down -in 2001, the Gators had just finished a 10-2 season in which they had come up just short of playin for a national championship. But in Zook's first season, UF managed to win just eight games, its fewest total since the pre-Spurrier days. "A lot of guys who bere here winning left early and stuff like that," Harris said, "You really had no one to look to. If you don't have anybody to lead you, you don't really know what to do. You're acting like a chicken with your head cut off." In 2003, despite Leak emerging as a freshman sensation, the Gators finished with a repeat of the 8-5 season from the previous year. By Zook's third year in 2004, the Gator Nation was demanding results, and the negativity began to weigh on the players. "It took a big toll on us," Harris said. "It was hard losing. And everybody started pointing fingers and stuff like that, and going our own separate ways. We weren't really a team. We weren't together as a unit. That is probably a big factor as to why we were losing so much. It hurt to lose." But after a controversial loss ,to Tennessee,-UF's season and Zook's future with the team began unraveling. Baker blamed himself forthe loss after he received personal foul penalty that helped the Volunteers drive down the field for a game-winning field goal. Baker thought about giving up. "It made me feeltbadbecause I was already beating myself up," Baker admitted last year. "I thought I lost the game by myself. I think I was harder on myself because that is something that any player, even if you're not coached that well, you should be able to stop yourself from doing that." The tough losses didn't stop there. The Gators blew a late lead against LSU three weeks later, falling at home 24-21. But the most crushing loss would come two weeks after that. .Unable to stop Mississippi State's Jerious Norwood, who rushed for 174 yards, the Gators were shocked by the Bulldogs 38-31. Two days later, Zook was fired. TURNING IT AROUND When Meyer took over the reins of the team in 2005, he was disgusted with the attitude of the team -on and off the field. It was a selfish team that lacked leadership. "You get away from home and you start to see the freedom, so you start to make a. couple of mistakes," Baker said. "You don't take advantage of being at a top university like this, and once you look back, it's too late. So really, that's what we're basically trying to eliminate around here." But for players like Baker and Harris, it wasn't too late. Baker, who never dreamed of earning a college degree two years ago, is set to graduate by the end of this semester. Harris, whoehas been havingtconstant off-field problems, particularly trying to deal with raising three children to two different mothers out of wedlock, has also turned his life around, according to Meyer. He will also graduate. "Coach Meyer came in and taught us how to be accountable for one another and taught us how to do thingsas a unit and do things together to be a better team," Harris said. In fact, almost every senior on UF's roster has turned his career around inthe last UF quarterback Chris Leak points at the line against Louisiana Tech in 2005. two seasons under Meyer. Running back DeShawn Wynn, a notorious underachiever, earned his starting spot on the practice field and has been UF's most impressive tailback this season. Reggie Lewis converted from the wide receiver position and is now starting at cornerback. Corner Tremaine McCollum, a career benchwarmer, is now UF's primary nickel corner. Center Steve Rissler, who was servedeas Mike Degory's backup forthe last three seasons, is now the unquestioned leader of the offensive line. The list goes on. "I'm proud of them," Zook said. "I talk to some of them, but not every day. Coach Meyer and his staff have done a great job, and I am glad to see they're able to do the things that we talked about when we recruited them. Iam rooting for them." Meyes made it clear that for the Gators to achievetsuccess, the upperclassmen needed to be leaders. "I think the attitude has changed because we've been together for the last four toffive years," Baker said. "And with Coach Meyer pushing us, telling us that the seniors need to become leaders and help this team out, I think now everybody is starting to listen to what he's saying." "We're like one," Harris said. "We hang together all the time. We laugh together. We .cy together. We do everything together. We're like one big family." ONE LAST CHANCE After four years of high expectations, flashes of brilliance and misery of defeat, the senior class is determinedto make its mark once and for all. The Gators have already clinched a spot in the SEC title game for the first time since 2000 -and at No. 4 in the Bowl Championship Series standings, a national championship is not yet out of the question either. For this senior class, all it takes to erase the painfulmemories of the past is one good stretch run and a ring or two. "There's a lot of pressure on us," Harris said. "I feel like there is a lot of pressure on me, too, because it'stmyflastyear and I've never won anything. So I wanna try to go out and win everything." So when Baker and Harrisembraced and let their emotions go last Saturday, Meyer was anything but surprised. "That's a lot of emotions building up over the last four to five years," Meyer said. A lot of dreams crashed and burned. And now maybe those dreams are still alive."

Catamounts amount to a crippling opponent for BCS voters, computers Why the heck are the Gators playing Western And why at this thne of the season? Believe it or not, there are actually some reasonable explanations as to why UF scheduled to play one of the worst teams in Division I-AA on Saturday And astyou might expect, there are also some greedy, stupid reasons behind the 2-8 Catamouts' visit to the Swamp. The Gators, like every other team in Division I-A, didn't know they would need an extra game ts season until April 28, 2005, when the NCAA approved a 12th regular-season game but didn't add an extra week to the schedule. Schools scrambled to find opponents, and apparently UF didn't scramble fast enough. Senior associate athletics director Greg McGarity said the University Athletic Association sent out e-mails and lettersttoschools across thecountry asking if they wanted to play. McGarity said colleges like Middle Tennessee State, North Texas, Arkansas State, Florida Atlantic and FloridaInterational were among many the Gators Antonio tried to host, but all already had Gonzalez games. Going Going Gonzo "We had interests in the whole agonzalezcaigator.org college football world," McGarity said. "Even top programs. With the short time we had, there wasn'tmuch out there." The main problem was that UF's schedule was alreadymade. And Nov. 18 was the only opentweekend otherthan the week between Aubum and Georgia. Struggling to find an opponent, the Gators were left with pathetic Western Carolina. McGarity said money wasn't an issue and that UF was willing to pay well above the $425,000 it is dishing out to WesternCarolina. But, in reality money is the primary issue. The Gators take in more than $2 miaion for every home game, so they never considered playing on the road. "Playing away was never an option," McGarity said. "We must havesevenhome games tobalance the budget." I can understand that to some degree. The entire UAA depends on football money. But while balancing the budget might keep the UAA afloat, it's going to kill the Gators' hopes of a national title this season -unless Southem Cal and Notre Dame each lose the next two weekends. It doesn't matter if UF defeats Western Carolina by 100 -the Catamounts will degrade the Gators' computer rankings, which is one-third of the BCS formula. UF had an opportunity to play a Division I-A school. UAB offered toplay two games in Gainesville for one UF trip to Birmingham during the next several years. Butthat would have cost the UAA money, so it declined. InApril 2005, a game against Western Carolina must have seemed liked an afterthought. But a weak year for the Southeastem Conference and the Gators' regular-season schedule will likely finish featuring just two ranked opponents, unless Georgia can somehow crawl into the top 25. Now it's November 2006, and UF is in the thick of the national title race. Should the Gators win out and miss the chamtpionsWhp game, they will only have themselves to blame. But at least they'll have a little extra money in their pocket.
