UF on outside looking in for BCS title game

"I think the BCS has done

said on a Sunday teleconference.

Some students pursue tradition outside family circle

While most UF students were checking
bus schedules or eating turkey last week,
Katherine Murphy was attending an on-cam-
pus concert to pass the time.
Murphy, a freshman from Pensacola, was
one of many who didn't make it home for
Some students stayed in Gainesville to
work, while others simply didn't want to
make long trips back to their hometowns.
"I decided a few weeks ago probably
when I got my job, which is the reason I'm
staying," said Murphy, who works at the Gap
clothing store in The Oaks Mall.
She was hired as a seasonal employee
specifically to work on big holiday shopping
days, like the day after Thanksgiving and the
weeks leading up to Christmas.
"I would like to go home because I have
a lot of friends there, but I know how impor-
tant it is for me to work," she said.
As soon as Murphy found out she would
have to stay in Gainesville for Thanksgiving,
she called and told her mother, who offered
to visit with Murphy's younger sister.
"I was a little surprised, though, that it's
so important to my mom," Murphy said.
After thinking for a few seconds, she added,
"I guess I shouldn't be surprised. She is my

Tommy Gilliam, a communication sci-

trouble as one of the reasons he skipped the
six-hour trip this year.
"My car's broken, and we're really not
having Thanksgiving this year," he said.
Gilliam had planned to work at a craft fair
over the long weekend, but a friend offered
to take him home to Orange Park with her,
"She thought I'd be sad, staying here all

Aquatic department finds sanctuary at 'Clubhouse'

The tiny, unmarked, white building
was a storage room for UF's Institute
of Food and Agricultural Sciences, but
now it's where about 60 students and 15
faculty members hold meetings on cam-
pus and a place where professors can
spend their time working in between
"I couldn't find it at first," said Matt
Lauretta, a graduate student in the pro-
gram. "They had to wave me in because
I was walking around all lost, looking
Despite its small size, faculty mem-
bers and students are glad to have a

small office gets' crowded, the air gets
thick and elbows jostle a bit too much.
"Sometimes it gets hot and we get
people standing outside the door,
looking inside and writing down some
equations from the board," said associ-
ate professor Mike Allen.
Although no classes are taught in the
office, the department holds a study ses-
sion twice a week for about 15 people.
When looking for privacy, students
and professors talk outside the build-
ing at nearby picnic tables so as not to
bother anyone or be overheard.
A map showing students how to get
to a nearby bathroom is an almost-per-
manent feature on the office's dry-erase

but decided against it.

"If you think of it, it would be kind
of embarrassing," Lauretta said.
The story that brings the depart-
ment's headquarters on campus to this
tiny room is one that began about 20
years ago, Allen said.
When the department was first
formed, it was based at 7922 NW 71st
St. At the time only about five faculty
members were involved, and the de-
partment was mostly research oriented,
An on-campus facility wasn't a pri-
ority back then, Allen said.
Now, with about 60 students and 15
faculty members, an on-campus office
has become a necessity.
Although the department remains
based off campus, some classes are
taught on campus, he said.
Professors have their own off-cam-
pus offices, but it's convenient for them
to have a place on campus to meet with
students, Allen said.
"This is the first time I actually get
the chance to be on campus," said Jason
Dotson, a graduate student in the pro-
Driving from campus to the depart-
ment's off-campus offices can take up

associate vice president.

Scammers hook students with counterfeit Web sites
By SONIA ACOSTA
Alligator Contributing Writer
The lines are cast. They are far-
reaching and numerous. Hoping
that just a few will bite the bait, they
lure millions of people.
UF alumnus Emmanuel Laroche
was caught by phishers in June
when he filled out a request from
what he thought was eBay's PayPal.
They wanted him to update account
information due to a security breach
that might cause him to lose access.
Unfortunately for Laroche, the
e-mail was not from PayPal.
"I had received several e-mails
with the same request for informa-
tion, but something did not seem
right about entering my PIN num-
ber, so I ignored them," Laroche
said. "After enough attempts, I
figured it had to be legit, so I filled
it out only to later find out I had just
handed over all of my information
Laroche started to notice small
amounts of money missing from his
checking account. A few weeks later,

Phishing is identity theft carried
out through a Web site that seems to
represent a legitimate company, said
Bank of America spokeswoman Lisa

they are buying something from a

"The criminals then use the personal

Scammers also send personal
e-mails to consumers, pretending
to be banks or businesses such as
PayPal. The e-mails, fabricated with
logos and messages sometimes dif-
ficult to discern from authentic ones,
request personal information such
as addresses, Social Security num-
bers, debit card numbers, PINs and
"Some of them can be very so-
phisticated," said Wachovia finan-
cial specialist Greg Cox.
Still, there are dues that the
messages are counterfeit, including
misspelled words and poor writing,
Cox warned that a real organiza-
tion would never ask for informa-
tion such as PINs over the Internet
or the phone.
Despite the signs, consumers are
sometimes caught off guard and
fall for the phishers' scam. Vallejo
suggests that victims of phishing
take the following steps to protect
themselves. Consumers should tell
the credit bureau agencies that they
may be a victim of identity theft and
ensure that no personal information
has been compromised.
Also, notify the Fraud Hotline at
the Social Security Administration
and the Federal Trade Commission
Identity Theft Hotline that you may
be a victim of identity theft.

Cox said phishing and financial
fraud have become a challenging
part of the financial services indus-
try. In southern parts of Florida,
about 75 percent of Wachovia's
operating costs go to recovery from
financial scams such as phishing.
According to the Federal Trade
Commission, the Fair Credit Billing
Act limits your liability for unau-
thorized credit card charges to $50
With debit cards, the amount of
money consumers are held respon-
sible for can depend on how quickly
they report the loss.
Reporting unauthorized transac-
tions within two business days lim-
its losses to $50. Between three and
60 days, consumers are liable for up
to $500. And after 60 days, they lose
the entire amount stolen.
Cox said phishing could cause
consumers to shy away from online
banking. But he suggested that us-
ing online banking can actually help
consumers catch any potential fraud
faster because they can check their
accounts more frequently.
"It feels as if someone has broken
into your home," he said. "It can be
a real sense of invasion, and it can
affect the confidence people have in
Signing for purchases instead of
using a PIN can also add security to
your transaction, he said.
One phishing incident can
wreak havoc on a person's life and
financial health. It can also be very
costly to financial institutions, which
ultimately affects the kind of service
consumers can receive from them.
Consumers should be alert and take
steps to maximize their security.

Grocery store opening
brings 'fresh' choices
By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Contributing Writer
Gainesville residents hungry for exot-
ic foods or organic products can now find
both at a new supermarket in northwest
The Fresh Market, a supermarket that
specializes in unique food items, opened
Wednesday at 4120 NW 16th Blvd.
The store offers sauces, cheeses and
produce not found in typical supermar-
kets, as well as more than 50 types of
olive oil. People who enjoy experiment-
ing with recipes will enjoy shopping at
the new store, said Harry Soto, district
manager of new stores.
"We are a very different market," he
said. "We're one of those stores where
you can find rare things, things that are
hard to find."
Company research showed that
Gainesville would be a promising loca-
tion for a store. The Fresh Market seeks to
attract customers who are "more refined"
in their buying habits and Gainesville
is full of people who fit that description,
Students who don't have time to ex-
periment can pick up ready-to-go meals,
including salads, rotisserie chickens,
sandwiches and wraps, he said.
The store is not laid out in a typical
supermarket style. Track lighting lines
the ceilings, and the floors are laid with
Italian tile. Customers often compare
the environment of the store to that of
smaller markets they have visited in
France, Soto said.
"You don't feel like you're in a super-
market," Soto said.
"We're one of those stores
where you can find rare things."

The produce section at The Fresh
Market features a variety of organic fruits
and vegetables. Organic food must pass a
60-page set of rules and regulations about
how it should be grown, said Marilyn
Swisher, an associate professor of sus-
tainable agriculture at UF. Organic food
is also free of pesticides and hormones.
But with all the extras that The Fresh
Market offers, its prices may be higher
than college students are used to.

while," said Lauren Menke, a microbi-
ology and cell science sophomore who

UF should give proposed
grade system a chance
iamn. UF students can't catch a break. First the admin-
tration tries to hike tuition. Then it slashes National
J IEMerit scholarships and spending for the College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences. And let's not forget UF President
Bernie Machen's Academic Enhancement Program.
Sometimes it seems everyone in Gainesville is out to get you
- professors, administrators, bookstores and towing compa-
nies, all conspiring to make your life a little bit harder. And the
hits just keep on coming.
Next month, the Faculty Senate will decide whether or not
to give students "minus" grades as in A-minus, B-minus and
the dreaded C-minus. Faculty Senate Chairwoman Danaya
Wright says minus grades would help professors "grade you
more accurately." Which is true.
Then again, no one wants a C-minus. A solid "C" has a rug-
ged, workmanlike appeal to it it's not great, but at least it's
not terrible. Its middle-of-the-road. Democratic. But a C-minus?
That just screams, "1 should have gone to Florida State."
Predictably, Student Government is against the idea
Student Senate President Josh Weiss says minus grades
would hurt students more than they would help them. Maybe
But for once, we're siding with the powers-that-be.
Sure, a big, fat minus won't look great on your transcript.
But the more steps in UF's grading system, the less arbitrary
the grades. It doesn't make sense to jump from a B-plus to an
A or vice versa over a couple of measly little percentage
Besides, most of Florida's other public universities already
use minuses and what's the point of having grades at all if
they're not comparable from one school to the next? We just
hope the Faculty Senate phases the new system in after we're
gone. We got a B-plus in Wildlife Issues, and well be damned if
some punk freshman waltzes in and snatches an A-minus.
That's more like it
UF's campus preach-
ers could learn a
thing or two from
George Brantley, senior
pastor at The Rock of
Gainesville church. Last
week, Brantley and a few
of his parishioners came to
the Plaza of the Americas
armed with turkey, mashed
potatoes, and pumpkin pie
- and did more to spread
the good word than Joey
Johnsen's rants ever have.
Of course, you can never
go wrong with free food
- students would listen
to Mussolini if he handed
out a few pizzas. But
even without the turkey,

He didn't shout about
fornication. He didn't call
anyone a sodomite. All
he did was serve a few
free lunches showing
students the tenets of his
faith without "screaming
and yelling and shoving it
down their throats," as the

Americas is a public space.
Preachers like Johnsen
have every right to stand
there and ramble on about
the evils of pornography,
premarital sex and hell,
why not women's suf-
frage, while they're at it?
But if they're actually out
to change students' minds,
they should ditch the hard
sell, lighten up and take a
page from Brantley's play-

Democrats' divisions could undo win
L ess than a month has passed since this year's
Congressional elections, and divisions are already
emerging among Democrats. Surprise, surprise.
Even though Rep. Nancy Pelosi is poised to become
speaker of the House of Representatives, moderate
Democrats are already distancing themselves from her,
lest they be branded "liberal," as she has been.
Since 2000, pundits have been yammering that the
country is becoming steadily more conservative but
the reality is that Democrats have consistently failed to
display a united front for more than two days at a time.
Take the recent scuffle over the post of House majority
leader, for instance. Pelosi supported her longtime ally,
Rep. John Murtha, for the position. He was an influential
voice against the Iraq war one of the first members of
Congress to call for troop reductions.
But instead of rallying behind Pelosi's choice,
Democrats in the House elected Rep. Steny Hoyer, a
moderate they believed would offset Pelosi's image as a
California liberal. Oh, the horror!
The Democrats' recurrent inability to present a unani-
mous and coherent platform to voters is the reason this
month's election can't be called a turning of the tide. As
an idealist, I'd like to think this country isn't turning into
a conservative theocracy.
But the Democrats' lack of a united stance on any is-
sue has kept them from making any considerable gains
-since-Bush was elected and it's why their victory this
time was hardly that. Despite a gain of six Senate seats,
they barely have a majority.
It took former Rep. Tom DeLay's numerous ethi-
cal lapses, former Rep. Mark Foley's pedophilia and
the Jack Abramoff lobbyist nightmare for voters to say
they're fed up with Republican
Even though it's been painfully
obvious to most of us that the war
in Iraq has bred more terrorists
than it has killed, it took voters
Anuradha Pandey almost 2,700 U.S. deaths to realize
Editorial Notebook that Iraq may be a lost cause.
firstname.lastname@example.org The only reason the map looks
less like a sea of red is because the
Republicans did everything pos-
sible to screw up. It's as if they thought, "No matter how
corrupt we are, the people will never elect those baby-
killing tree huggers. So why not embezzle a little?"
Thankfully, they were wrong voters expressed their
disapproval at the polls. But the election had more to do
with Republican failures than Democratic successes. A
new era has not begun, as some claimed on Nov. 8th.
The sad thing is that many Democrats ran as con-
servatives, making them Democrats only in name.- For
example, Jim Webb, who unseated Virginia Sen. George
Allen, served in Ronald Reagan's administration as sec-
retary of the Navy.
There are dozens of other Democrats who ran on the
"traditional values" platform. Let's just hope their defi-
nition of traditional values is a far cry from DeLay's.
It's already been said by the pundits, but if Democrats
want to have a realistic chance at the presidency in 2008,
they need to grow a pair and stop trying to minimize
their differences with Republicans. They have two years
to win back the trust of voters. They'd better think fast.

make light of the situation, but
Percy Harvin's neck wasn't the
only thing that went numb after
he was crushed on a slant. So
did UF's offense.
1Harvin was an unstoppable
force in nearly two quarters
of action against Florida State.
back rushed for 86 yards on just
four carries. One of those touch-
es was a 41-yard touchdown
scamper that put UF up 14-0 in
the second quarter.
But Harvin was carted off
the field just before halftime
after receiving a helmet-to-hel-
met blow from FSU linebacker
Buster Davis. The Gators did not
score again until 10:22 left in the
fourth quarter. Harvin should
play in Saturday's Southeastern
game against Arkansas. UF will
certainly need him.
"Whenever he's in there,
you kind of hold your breath
because he could make a play
at any time," receiver Andre
Caldwell said. "Then when he
got hurt, it changed the offense
a little bit."
After seeing Harvin's X-
rays and MRI results, Meyer
expects him to play against the
"All reports are positive,"
Meyer said on a Sunday tele-
conference. "He should be able
to go for Saturday."
"When you lose a dynam-
ic player like that, you
saw the lack of big plays
in the second half."
UF offensive coordinator
Harvin was solely responsi-
ble for UF's second touchdown
of the game. He started that sec-
ond quarter scoring drive with
a 28-yard run up the right side-
line. Tailback DeShawn Wynn
lost 1 yard on the following
play. Harvin took a direct snap
on the ensuing play and sprint-
ed for a 41-yard touchdown.
"I don't know if you've no-
ticed, but we kind of need him,"
Meyer said sarcastically. "The
one thing we want to be is the
fastest team in college football.
You saw Percy make the entire
FSU secondary miss (in the first
half). (His injury) kind of put us
in reverse for a little bit."
"He is the fastest player I've
ever played with," Wynn said.
But Harvin went down on a
short slant route late in the sec-
ond quarter. He caught the ball
amid heavy traffic and collided

The freshman lay motion-

minutes. He eventually began
moving his feet, but a stretcher
was requested anyway.
"It was quiet on the sidelines
for a while," receiver Cornelius
Ingram said. "It was scary at
first because we thought it was
something real serious."
The Gators huddled on the
sidelines for a brief prayer.
After the game, Meyer said
Harvin felt numbness in the
neck area but that the receiver
told him he was OK while being
carted away. With one minute
remaining in the game, Harvin

able, but an 11-1 UF team still doesn't have a
Chris Hetland has held the job for the
entire season, but he missed
two more field goals Saturday
from 38 and 35 yards,
respectively running his
Football tally for the season to a putrid
3 for 12.
According to Meyer, however, Hetland still
hasn't been beat out in practice, and that is the
reason he continues to be on the field.
"We've just got to keep going," Meyer said.
"It's open every week. We open it up every
week for a battle, and as long as he's hitting
the ball and doesn't get beat out, Chris is going
to be the kicker.
"He's hitting the ball and he's just barely
missing them, but he is missing them. We're
going to open (the competition) up again."
QUICK HITS: UF's three interceptions tied a
season high, as the Gators also picked off
three passes against Southern Miss, LSU and
Alabama. ... Chris Leak passed for over 200
yards for the 32nd time in his career, setting
a new UF career record. ... Ryan Smith's
seventh interception moved him into a tie for

Although four UF players scored in
double-digits, including Green's sea-
son-high 25 points, the Gators, who
averaged nearly 21 assists per game
heading into Saturday night's contest,
only had nine.
"We didn't play to our offensive
identity tonight," Donovan said. "We
made a lot of poor decisions down
the stretch and had questionable shot
selection throughout the game. We
weren't moving the ball around as
well as we could have."
Still, the Gators managed to force
overtime when forward Joakim Noah
tipped in the rebound off a missed
Green three-pointer. That tied the
score at 70 with 4.2 seconds left.
The Gators lost some momentum
when Horford, who had been in foul
trouble most of the game, committed
his fifth early in the overtime period.
Still, UF appeared to have the
game locked when Green hit a three
to propel the Gators to an 80-77 lead
with 1:22 left on the clock. However,
some hiccups let the Jayhawks back in
"To get the game into overtime, we
felt like we had all the momentum,"
Noah said. "In the end, it hurts be-
cause it just didn't happen for us. We

Green committed a turnover with

Forward Corey Brewer air-balled

free throw to finalize the score 82-80.
UF tried once more to score a
late basket, but its luck had run out.

sprout a few gray hairs instead.

friendly to the Gators in UF's 82-
80 overtime defeat on Saturday
"We were very fortunate to
even have a
the stretch," said
Jones in a post-
game radio interview, which
usually features UF coach Billy
Donovan. "Coming back in the
second half, we never got in the
flow. Give Kansas credit they
did a great job tonight."
UF outscored Kansas 39-33
in the second half to force over-
time, but any last-minute heroics
could not save the Gators from
defeat. The upset snapped UF's
consecutive-winning streak at 17,
dating back to last season's loss at
Alabama on Feb. 26.
The Gators had earned their
17th consecutive win in a 101-
68 rout of Westeri Kentucky on
Friday night, tying their 2005 sea-
son-opening streak for the longest
in the program's history.
The Gators faced an uphill
battle for the majority of the
Kansas game. They led 2-0 after
winning the tip, but did not have
another such lead until 3:10 left
in the second half when forward
Chris Richard blocked a shot and
assisted a Taurean Green layup.
