Meyer: Possible rematch unfair
i THE COACH SAID MICHIGAN SHOULD NOT
GET ANOTHER CHANCE TO PLAY OHIO STATE.
By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
Michigan might get a rematch with Ohio State in
the national championship game, and UF coach Urban
Meyer can't stand the thought.
Even before the latest Bowl Championship Series
standings were released Sunday afternoon, Meyer took
exception to the possibility of seeing the Wolverines
and Buckeyes play again.
"I think that would be unfair to Ohio State, and I
think it would be unfair to the country," he said via
teleconference. "I don't believe that's the right thing
to do. You're going to tell Ohio State that
they have to beat the same team twice,
which is extremely difficult. I think
(Michigan) had their chance. Someone
Football else should have a chance to go get No.
The latest standings have Ohio State as a locked
No. 1; the Buckeyes defeated the Wolverines 42-39 on
Saturday. But the slight surprise is Michigan, which
.- has retained its No. 2 BCS spot. Southern Cal, with
its Rose Bowl clinching 23-9 win against California,
stayed at No. 3.
These realities are a bitter blow to UF, which will
have to claw, squirm and pray to get to the title game.
The Gators are mired in a No. 4 rut after playing
Division I-AA Western Carolina. UF did win 62-0.
"I think you can make a case for USC, and you can
make a case for us," Meyer said. "Southern Cal got beat
by an unranked team (Oregon State), and we went into
a hostile environment (Auburn), played our hearts out,
were on the 6-yard-line and failed to get it done. I think
there's two schools out there that can say, 'We deserve
Luanne Dietz/ Alligator a shot. We've played a difficult schedule.' If those-two

New PlayStation 3 owners find tough sell online
By JAMES RIGNEY
Dozens of student investors camped in
front of Gainesville retailers in the hopes of
purchasing a Sony PlayStation 3 or Nintendo
Wii and selling it for higher prices online.
But resale prices online fell over the week-
end, and many of the higher-priced systems
went unsold on Web sites, including eBay
UF student Leah Nanni and her brother
Todd Nanni, also a UF student, camped out-
side of the Circuit City on Northwest Fourth
Boulevard with 11 other people for one of the
store's six units: After waiting about 55 hours
in line, they were able to buy one PS3, which
they plan to resell.
The PS3, which came in a $499 and a $599
version, was listed on eBay for about double
the original prices Friday. But those who tried
to sell for much more went without bids.
After resale averages plummeted to about
$1,500 over the weekend, Todd said he plans
to wait until Christmas to sell his system. He
said he did make some cash Sunday when he
"Many people just purchased
them to resell."
Circuit City operations manager
sold his spot in Target's line for the Nintendo
Wii for $200. He had waited in line for 12
hours, he said.
The Wii, which cost $250 in stores, was
listed between about $400 and $550 on eBay
Clint Mendez, Circuit City operations man-
ager, said his store sold all of its 15 Wii units in
less than 10 minutes.
"It's the-same as the PS3," Mendez said.
"Many people just purchased them to resell."
However, some gamers who waited in
line last week said they wanted a Wii for
themselves more than for resale. Mendez said
determined gamers will have to be on the
lookout for shipments of both systems.
"Our policy is, if and when they come in,
they will be sold on a first come, first served
basis," he said.

The UF Bhangra Club will hold a bhangra clinic
today at the Reitz Union's Rion Ballroom, as part of
the Asian American Student Union's Kaleidoscope
The three-hour bhangra clinic begins at 7 p.m.
and is open to the public. Members will be teaching
attendees basic dance moves and stunts. Bhangra
music will be played, and a skit about the origins of
bhangra will also be performed.
Bhangra is a lively form of folk
Multicultural dance and music that originated
.;f'.0Aj', in the 1400s in the small, remote
villages of Punjab, a region in
Northern India and Pakistan, said
Chintak Patel, vice president of the Bhangra Club. .
The type of bhangra the club performs has been
modernized, Patel said. It includes steps and stunts
from hip-hop, pop and break dancing.
"It's like break dancing without spinning on your
head," said cub member Shawn Alam.
Patel said he encourages everyone to join because
bhangra is universal, and it's not hard to learn.
"It's so rewarding to teach newcomers and watch
them grow and get better," said Juhi Desai, Bhangra
Club president. She said she teaches the steps one
way, but everyone is encouraged to add to them and
let their own personality shine through.
"The cub is really chill, and we love to welcome
new people," Desai said.

Gators need USC, Notre Dame to lose
FOLLOW from page 1
Meyer watched most of the
Michigan-Ohio State arid Cal-
USC games Saturday and came
to a disheartening conclusion:
Talking heads, the fans and the
media are trying to decide who
will play in Glendale, Ariz. The
coach was particularly disturbed
with ESPN's nationwide poll that
displayed how torn voters were
about having a Michigan-Ohio
"If they do that (rematch),
there should be a playoff system
next year," Meyer said. "And I
do think those are great teams,
because I tried to watch every
snap, but I believe as we move
on, we need a playoff series. I
think if that (rematch) happens, I
think it's over. All the presidents
would need to get together im-
mediately and put in a playoff
system like, now. I didn't think
it was possible to do with all the
stadiums and selling tickets, but I
believe there's enough firepower
out there now to get that done."
Should the Wolverines upset
the Buckeyes in a rematch, Meyer
would not consider Michigan the
"If they do that (rematch),
there should be a playoff
system next year."
UF football coach
"Absolutely (there would
be no national champion)," he
said. "If I'm Ohio State, I go get
a bunch of rings and say, 'We
won the national championship.'
That's not right."
The interesting dynamic is
that the Gators' lone national
championship -occurred because
they were granted a rematch
with FSU. In 1996, UF fell in
Tallahassee 24-21, but Arizona
State and Nebraska losses boosted
the Gators to No. 2 in the polls. UF
eventually trounced the Seminoles
52-20 in the Sugar Bowl.
"I think what happened in
1996 was a lot different because
you didn't have the BCS," Meyer
said. "You had voting at the end
and that was unique, but I don't
believe that was right either.
What happened in 1996 worked
out, but there was no BCS, and
it was just how it worked out. It
was a completely different era."
The Gators still hold an out-
side shot at advancing to the
national championship. Their
dream scenario has USC defeat-
ing Notre Dame on Saturday and
then the Trojans losing to UCLA,
UF can also bolster its argu-
ment by winning ideally dom-
inating in the Southeastern
Conference title game against a
highly ranked Arkansas team.
"The winner of that football
game should be up there," FOX
analyst Howie Long said Sunday

"Things are pretty tight right now," said David Gosche, a
student in the college.- "A lot of what was storage space has
been made into makeshift usable space, so the halls are not only
filled with people but with carts and equipment, too."
For seven years, the school has been planning to build a new
research center and a new small-animal
U F hospital. The total estimated cost is $49.4
'- million, Thompson said.
-The college's administrators hope to
secure legislative funds this spring, begin the engineering and
architectural phase in July and complete work by July 2010.
Their plan will consist of renovating the existing small-ani-
mal hospital, constructing a three-story building and joining
the two together, said Zoe Seale, senior director of develop-
ment for the college.
The new hospital will include a state-of-the-art cancer treat-
ment center that will offer treatments they can't now, like radia-
tion therapy, Seale said. The new facilities will allow the college
to better compete with other facilities in the state, she said.,

Board of Governors can't
let everyone raise tuition
One down, one to go. Last week, the Florida Board
of Governors OK'd UF President Bernie Machen's
Academic Enhancement Program, which would
charge incoming freshmen an extra $1,000 a year. Now
the plan goes to Tallahassee for final approval in the
The Alligator supports Machen's idea in principle. UF defi-
nitely needs more faculty its the one thing almost everyone
in Gainesville can agree on. But we don't trust the administra-
tion to spend students' money wisely.
Machen's negligence contributed to the budget crisis in the
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences a crisis Machen insists
isn't his fault or his problem. Even now, he won't commit the
majority of. proposed faculty hires to CLAS, where they're
That being said, it seems the Academic Enhancement
Program is on its way to becoming a reality. The Board of
Governors likes it, and the plan allows the Legislature to give
Machen what he wants higher tuition without increasing
spending for Bright Futures and Florida Prepaid.
Now it's up to the Board of Governors to impose some
restraint on the rest of the State University System. If Machen
gets his extra $1,000 a head, you can bet Florida State University
and the University of Central Florida will want the same thing
- more money for new professors and academic counselors.
But they shouldn't get it.
The purpose of hiking UF's tuition and that's what this is,
however Machen tries to label it is to catapult Florida's flag-
ship university into the upper echelon of public schools. That
takes time and money, and itll never work if the rest of the State
University System says "me too" at every stage. There's only so
much to go around.
Unfortunately, the Board of Governors may have just
opened a can of worms. When FSU, let's say, comes up with
a "Scholastic Wellness Regimen," we hope Tallahassee has the
guts to say no.

On election night, Rep.
Nancy Pelosi the
next speaker of- the
House of Representatives
- promised voters "the most

Now that her party controls

time to put up or shut up.
It's not enough for
Democrats to sweep
Republicans out of office and
promise to behave them-
selves. It's a good start, of
course. But Congress needs
ethics reform to curb the in-
fluence of lobbyists, govern-
ment contractors and special
interest groups who are
all happy to woo Democrats
as well as Republicans.

The first step toward
cleaning up government is
to ban gifts, meals and free

Share a meal with i
T hanksgiving is just a few days away, and many of
us can already smell the turkey and stuffing or
Tofurky and lentils for the vegans out there and
look forward to the travel that will bring us to the place we
can only call home for a few more years.
Gainesville's homeless, however, have only travel
ahead, with no real destination. City commissioners ap-
proved a plan last week to push the homeless out of the
downtown area to well, anywhere else. That "anywhere
else" will probably be around UF's campus.
The policies in the package approved include measures
to prevent meals from being served on the Downtown
Plaza a common locale for homeless feedings the
hiring of "security service" teams and the establishment
of a "one-stop" center for homeless services.
What property will go unsold when one of its selling
points is its location "just a stone's throw away from the
city's one-stop service center"? If the City Commission
tries to centralize all 1,200 of the city's homeless men and
women around one place, it will fail and fail spectacu-
Politically, it will never happen because too many vot-
ers will oppose having the center anywhere near them.
It's socially impossible because and this may come as
a surprise to many homeless people, just like the rest
of society, don't naturally congregate into one big happy
family. Perhaps a story will illuminate this fact.
I grew up on the rough side of town in Jacksonville.
A walk around my neighborhood was unusual if it went
without sighting a homeless man, a prostitute or shoes
hanging from electrical lines as advertisements for nearby
I wasn't unaffected by it, but when you see something
every day, it inevitably becomes somewhat ordinary.
someone in need
One extraordinary memory
was formed when my father and I
drove past a prostitute who looked
She is, to date, the only street
prostitute I've seen that I would
Gerald Liles describe as pretty, so I cynically
The Liles Files pointed the anomaly out to my
He then explained to me that
this wouldn't last long, because
the moment the other prostitutes saw her, they would
beat her to disfigurement.
Later on that same week I saw her again. She was
limping and still bloody from the predicted assault.
Why do I tell that story? To show that the 1,200 home-
less men and women of Gainesville are not a problem that
can be solved. They're people. Many of them made no
greater mistakes and did no heavier drugs than some UF
students yet they suffer consequences we don't dare to
imagine experiencing ourselves.
Don't rely on a city commission to help the homeless. I
suspect the "security service teams" will flush the home-
less out of downtown long before a "one-stop" center is
established, and students will start seeing them more fre-

try something radical: get him or her some food maybe
even share a meal. The conversation might be awkward,
even incoherent. However, you'll meet not a personified
problem, but a person --like you with many problems.

Letters to the Editor
You catch more with honey than vinegar
Religion and hatred aside, you have to ad-
mit that Joey Johnsen's antics are ineffective at
best. The tactic of spouting out scripture to the
masses may have worked in medieval times,
but times have long since changed.
We're bombarded with advertisements
and commercials every day, screaming for us
to buy this or join that. What makes yelling on
the Plaza of the Americas any different? If one
person was screaming at you to buy a new car
and another car dealership offered you a free
oil change, who would you buy from?
Maybe if Johnsen took a hint from the
Krishnas and set up his own cheap lunch line,
he could be more effective instead of alienat-
Alligator should aid interfaith dialogue
As a UF student and active participant in
the local Hare Krishna community, I support
the right of any religious group to exercise
its freedom of speech on campus. The same
rights that allow us to sit and play our music
apply to anyone who feels the need to contrib-
ute something to the collective airwaves.
However, the free speech provision in our
Bill of Rights does not provide the freedom
to slander and spread libelous information.
When preachers of certain religious persua-
sions call Krishna "an idol" or "a made-up
god," not only do they cross this line, they also
reveal themselves to be totally ignorant of any-
thing beyond their own fundamentalist zeal.
Even worse, the Alligator referred to Hare
Krishnas as heathens in "Preacher's move irks
new audience," Friday's front-page .article.
These statements did not appear in a campy
cartoon or short letter to the editor rather,
they appeared in a front-page article written
by an Alligator contributing writer.
Does the Alligator plan on giving the Hare
Krishnas equal print time? An article about
how we are in our 35th year of spreading love
of God at UF through food and music seems
appropriate. Or perhaps the Alligator could
arrange some sort of dialogue or mediation
between those opposed to our activities and
ourselves so we can come to some sort of ami-
cable understanding of one another, as well as
mutual respect for each other's boundaries.
Airborne ads annoy late-sleeping student
After hours of paper-writing that con-
sumed- my entire precious Friday night,
I went to bed late, only to be awakened
around 8:30 Saturday morning under the
impression that UF was being attacked by
fighter jets. But when I opened up my win-
dow, all I saw were two prop planes towing
gigantic GEICO banners behind them.
What I want to know is, who let that hap-
pen? There are things I don't mind being
jerked from sleep at 8:30 a.m. for, but seeing
a huge corporate symbol being wafted nois-
ily over my head is not one of them.
Alligator shouldn't insult political foes
Wow, so much for intelligent journalism.
The harsh rhetoric displayed in the first half
of Friday's "Darts & Laurels" does little to
advance the cause of the Alligator. Calling the
president a "complete lunatic," among other
things, for disagreeing with your views is as
preposterous as declaring that all Democrats
Perhaps rather than attacking those who
disagree with you, which seems to be the norm
in America right now, maybe the Alligator
should spend a little more time preparing a
convincing argument if it wants to change the
minds of others. Grow up.
U.S. should stay in Iraq despite failures
The free press can't be blamed for a
falsely prosecuted war. While I agree with
Patrick Barrett's Thursday column on
some points such as the fact that pull-
ing out of Iraq would be a mistake or that
our government may be a bit too vulner-
able to pressure from public opinion he
has ignored the root cause of this problem.
It's fairly simple.
At no point did Saddam Hussein pose
a direct security threat to the United
States no evidence has been found that
Saddam had developed weapons of mass
destruction. Therefore, justification for
this war was completely false, whether
Democrats or Republicans believed the
evidence or not. That's why the occupa-
tion is faltering and voters are so upset
with the president.
However; it would be a moral crime
to leave Iraq now that we've become so
involved. Having invaded Iraq, now we
have an obligation to help the country
Still, it's a mistake to blame the press
for our failures. If the war had been fought
the right way as a last resort and with
proper justification public opinion
wouldn't be a factor at all.

James returns first punt back for touchdown, breaks 10-year Gators record
FOOT, from page 16
Fayson 77 yards and one touchdown rush-
ing; tailback Mon Williams 95 yards rush-
ing on nine carries; and, of course, quarterback
Tim Tebow, who rushed for 47 yards, passed
for 200 and played a part in four touchdowns.
Don't forget about dynamic freshman re-
ceiver Percy Harvin, who caught three recep-
tions for 43 yards in limited duty.
"Take a look at all the young people who
played this year, and you can see Florida's
future," Meyer said "A lot of true freshmen
scored touchdowns today."
Wait, there's more. Freshman Brandon
James returned a 77-yard punt return for a
touchdown. In collecting 155 punt return
yards in the first half, James broke the UF re-
cord for punt return yards in a game. Jacquez
Green held the previous record of 145 yards
against Kentucky on Sept. 28,1996.
The 2006 class should be a special one.
"Every time a freshman made a play, we
would say, "06, '06, '06,'"
James said. "We've got
three more years to go. All
of us that came in together
the '06 guys we knew
we are capable of making
plays. We just needed the
chance to get the ball in our
James hands to showcase it. With
Jarred, Riley and Mon doing the things they
did, that's nothing new to us. We've been see-
ing it in practice everyday."
A severely undersized and mismatched
Western Carolina team could do little to stop
UF's offense. Tebow and Chris Leak routinely
had more than four seconds to find receivers.
The No. 1 recipient was Cooper. But even
Cooper dropped his first pass a catchable
29-yard touchdown. He threw up on the field
"I was just nervous and running around,"
Cooper said. "I was just mad at myself for
dropping a well-thrown ball. I eventually got
that out of me."
WR Baker probable for FSU
NOTES, from page 16
the start of Saturday's-game in
a Senior Day ceremony that fea-
tured mild applause and a little
bit of surprise.
A late-arriving crowd of 90,223
broke into a relatively strong cheer
for starting quarterback Chris
L.;k, who appeared to be the
last senior recognized. Instead,
receiver Jemalle Cornelius was
announced afterward, leaving
fans partly confused.
Meyer has publicly touted
Cornelius as his favorite player,
while Leak has sometimes been the
subject of his coach's criticisms.
INJURY UPDATE: Senior receiver
Dallas Baker sprained his left
medial collateral ligament after
catching a 6-yard pass from
Leak on UF's first offensive play
of the game. Meyer said Baker
is probable for Saturday's FSU
Also, linebackers Brandon
Siler (partial left MCL tear) and
Earl Everett (sprained left ankle)
should both play as well.

closed violation of team rules but

OUT LOUD, from page 16
for Higgins to earn that carry. Higgins must have the same way every day
in practice as I did the day he pummeled me.
While it looked like he might never get an opportunity to see the field,
Higgins said his father, Kevin, the head coach of The Citadel, taught him
the value of never quitting.
"I've kind of had two problems in football: I've been really small and
really slow. Sometimes I believe that God just had a plan for me here,"
said Higgins, the president of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes at UF.
And there were some pretty convenient circumstances that allowed
him to get on the field this season.
If not for the fact that the NCAA added a 12th game this season and
the factdhat UF struck out on finding a quality opponent to fill that slot,
Higgins might have had to spend Senior Day on the sideline.
If Senior Day had been against South Carolina, I don't see him getting
into that game.
But Higgins, who admitted to watching "Rudy" three or four times
last week, said he doesn't deserve to play with the Gators or receive the
athletic scholarship Meyer issued him this season.
"He is a little guy that did everything we asked," Meyer said. "Tim,
come down here on scout team and run into these two people and get
your helmet knocked off.' And he did it. And he came back and did it
again. He is a first-class guy.
"eHeimst be Florida's version of Rudy."

UCLA eliminates Gators in controversial fashion
By RACHEL ROBINS
Shocked, flabbergasted, disappointed and surprised were
all emotions felt by the No. 16 UF soccer team (14-6-5) Friday
The referees' controversial calls and the sea of UF fans at-
tending the match in Los Angeles didn't matter. The Gators lost
and saw their season end right before their eyes.
UF fell to the Btuins 3-2 in a Sweet 16 match played at
UCLA's Drake Stadium. The No. 2 Bruins will play unseeded
Portland, the defending national champions, in the quarterfi-
Following UF's defeat, Coach Becky Burleigh was so infuri-
ated with the calls she couldn't formulate a game-analysis.
"This is a very difficult game for me to comment on without
commenting on the officiating," Burleigh said.
What angered Burleigh the most was a call that occurred
at the 7:27 mark, when UF's Lauren Hyde was charged for a
Consequently, UCLA's Danesha Adams took a penalty kick
that flew past UF goalkeeper Brittni Goodwin.
Though the game was tied 1-1 afterward, Burleigh said the
goal changed the game's complexion.
"That was a little bit of a swing of momentum that should
never have occurred," Burleigh said.
"This is a very difficult game for me to comment
on without commenting on the officiating."
UF soccer coach
UF had scored first on a goal by California's own, freshman
Ashlee Elliott. Elliott's hometown of Corona, Calif., is less
'than an hour from UCLA's campus. Roughly 65 supporters in
the crowd were happy to have her home. Entering halftime,
UF was tied 1-1 with the third-ranked team in the country,
and it appeared the two were equally matched.
But UCLA freshman Lauren Cheney would slowly crush
UF's chances of capturing a second NCAA Championship.
Cheney took a shot from 18 yards that flew past
If it wasn't clear enough before, Cheney proved why she
was named Pac-10 Freshman of the Year. Soon, she added a
dagger in the Gators' season.
At 65:59, she found Christina DiMartino 6 yards from the
goal. With one pass, Cheney ended UF's season. DiMartino
scored and the Gators felt their hope fade away.
Two of UF's three captains, Shelley Lyle and Stacy Bishop,
tried to rally their team at the 87:11 mark. Lyle found Bishop,
who hit an 8-yard goal. She scored while losing her footing
amid several Bruins defenders.
With the score 3-2 and their season on the line, thE Gators
tried to put something together in the final seconds. This time
the referees were on their side, but it was too late.
Ameera Abdullah was awarded a 35-yard free kick.
Elliott then tried to head it past UCLA's goalkeeper, Valerie
Henderson. It was the curse of the hand. Just as a UF hand-
ball put UCLA in position to score earlier, it was Henderson's
hand save that cost UF its season.
"I think UCLA is a good team, but we were just as good,
and it was an equally matched game," Burleigh said. "That's
the frustrating part of it. I think the game was kind of taken
away from us."

It was an ugly offensive match in the

The Gators stumbled out of the gates

Re-energized by four blocks in six

* LEE HUMPHREY MADE FIVE
By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
For point guard Taurean Green, getting
some Pepsi on the seat of his white Gators'
shorts is all in a day's work.
In UF's 93-44 victory against Tennessee-
Chattanooga, Green landed on the scorers'
table in the second half's opening minutes
after he dove for the ball. When he got up,
he tugged on his shorts and found large,
wet, tea-colored spot on his behind.
Green's effort typified the hustle and
physicality that the No. 1 UF men's basket-
ball team (4-0) displayed Saturday night.
"It was a very physical game," Green
said, "but we're tough too."
The Mocs were relentless against UF's
big men and trapped them whenever the
ball went into the low post, limiting juniors
Joakim Noah and Al Horford to 8 and 7
As a result, UF's perimeter players
stepped up to sink the bulk of UF's baskets.
Nine different players chipped in to
drain 14 three-pointers. Lee Humphrey
led with five, Walter Hodge followed with
two and Green, Corey Brewer, Dan Werner,
Jonathan Mitchell, Brandon Powell, Jack
Berry and Brett Swanson each made one.
"This was a game where I think our
team showed some balance," Coach Billy
Donovan said. "They tried to take away
the inside, and our perimeter guys stepped
"Coming into the game, coach
told the bigs they gotta be
strong. The bigs did a good job
of just throwing it out of the post
to the open man."
UF point guard
Humphrey, who was 3-of-12 from the
three-point line before Saturday's matchup,
finally came out of his slump and hit 5-of-7,:
including the first basket of the game.
"I don't worry about Lee," Donovan
said. "I just tell him to let it go, let it fly.
Don't even think about it. Tonight was one
of those nights. He got a lot of great looks
at the basket and was able to knock down
Both Humphrey and Green credited the
hot shooting to the decision making of the

Freshmen run all over Catamounts

Freshman wide receiver Riley Cooper caught three touchdowns in a
career day against Western Carolina. Many of UF's freshmen were

Championship Series actually improved from No.
6 to No. 4 in the computers. Just as significant, the
Catamounts were a much-needed change of pace from
the torturously cose games UF (10-1, 7-1 Southeastern
Conference) had been playing.
"It was very uncomfortable in the fourth quarter (try-
ing not to blow them out)," UF coach Urban Meyer said.
"I certainly didn't want to embarrass anybody."
The way his offense had been playing, you'd never
have thought Meyer would ever say such a thing.

UF football coach
But Saturday's performance might have been a
glimpse into the future, when UF could field the prolific
spread attack Meyer has been salivating for.
Using many of the freshmen who will be the comrr-
stones of the 2007 offense, the Gators amassed 585 yards
of total offense (285 rushing and 300 passing).
"I think you see West Virginia do some things that
Florida is going to do.... I'm not sure how you stop that,"
- Meyer said.
Just consider some of Saturday's freshman stat
stuffers: receiver Riley Cooper three touchdown re-
ceptions, 82 yards receiving; receiver/quarterback Jarred

Higgins proved to the Gator Nation that
he was not only a football player but also a
star in his own right.
The senior wide receiver, who has been
a staple of the scout team for the past four
years, came into Saturday's game in the
fourth quarter to a massive ovation. Fans
held up signs that read, "We want Higgins"
on one side and "We love Higgins" on the
Pamphlets about Higgins swirled
throughout the stadium, and somehow a
letter wound up on Urban Meyer's desk
that urged him to put Higgins in the game.
"Those people were screaming, 'Give

said. "I gave them Higgins."
Higgins played on kickoff coverage and
he lined up as a wide receiver, but he only
touched the ball once a handoff from
quarterback Tim Tebow that went for no
gain..Still, it was the greatest no gain he
could have ever asked for.
"Getting to run out on that field and
getting the ball in your hands, it's been my
dream since high school," said Higgins, an
aspiring history teacher and football coach.

Saturday's showdown between
Michigan and Ohio State took on a more
somber tone after legendary Wolverines
coach Bo Schembechler, 77, died Friday
Both Coach Urban Meyer and corner-
backs coach Chuck Heater have ties to
Meyer said that all of his coach-
ing philosophies have come from the
tree of influences that includes former
Ohio State coach Woody Hayes and
Schembechler, who was once Hayes' as-
sistant in Columbus.
"I think he's the
greatest football coach
of all time," Meyer
said. "He was one of
the first coaches that
really got into his kids'
Schembechler Meyer added that
he and Schembechler had a long talk af-
ter Meyer got his first head-coaching job
at Bowling Green.
Heater was even more intimately con-
nected to Schembechler, having played
at Michigan from 1971-74 and finished
his career as the Wolverines fifth all-time
Michigan went 41-3-1 and won or
shared the Big Ten title each of those four
"He loved being around the guys. He
loved being in the locker room," Heater
said. "He was like a gym rat. He liked
being around his guys and liked being
around his coaches. It was his life."
Heater also recalled the famous 10-10
tie between Michigan and Ohio State in
1973 and said that the game could still
stir the old coach's emotions.
"You might get him out of where he
is right now if you bring that one up,"
