At half mark,
short of goals
By JESSICA DaSILVA
More than halfway through Student Body President John
Boyles' term, his Swamp Party has accomplished less than a
quarter of the 29 goals that members promised to achieve.
But Boyles, whose term will conclude at the end of the
Spring semester, said about half of his
party's issues are under way.
"It has been a challenging, challenging
year for SG," Boyles said, "but (officials)
have stepped up to the plate."
In an interview Monday, Boyles cited
several tasks that his administration has
accomplished in the past six months, includ-
Boyles ing funneling money toward 108 new travel
grants for UF graduate students though a
bill passed in the Student Senate.
At the start of the summer, Boyles said, SG increased the
lighting at recreational fields like the one at Lake Alice during
hours when students use them most.
The administration also provided funding to extend hours
for Baby Gator, an on-campus child-care center for students
with families, Boyles said. He added that he also hopes to
get funding to renovate and expand the area, but he said that
would not happen for about two years.
Boyles said he and other executives are working on other
issues as well, such as creating a 24-hour cafe on campus and
improving UF's e-mail system.

Leaders unsure of plans for presidential election
* WEISS AND MOSELEY ARE
CONSIDERING THE POST.
By JOEY CHINDAMO
With 2006 drawing to a dose,
several high-ranking student lead-
ers are weighing bids to climb to
the top of the Student Government
During the next SG election,
which will be held in Spring, three
new executive officers presi-
dent, vice president and treasurer
- will be chosen. Josh Weiss and
Ryan Moseley, two SG officials, are
already considering throwing their
hats into the political ring.
The Student Body president
oversees control of about $12 mil-
lion in student money.
Weiss, the president of the
Student Senate, said being Student
Body president would be a "huge
responsibility, and it takes a tremen-
dous amount to get there and do the

in doing?" Weiss said. "Absolutely."
Weiss said he is not "work-

"Whether or not I intend to run
is going to depend a lot on what I
find to be the best way to serve
the students," he said. "If I end
up deciding that running for
office is in the best interests of
the students, then I'll let people
know as soon as I decide that."
Student Body Treasurer Ryan
Moseley also said he's consider-
ing running for the presidency.
"I'm talking it over with my
family and friends," Moseley
said. "I'd be truly honored to run,
and I'm just going to see how it
all comes out."
He -said "organizational lead-
ership and some friends" have
approached him about running
for the position.

not have a time frame for making

UAA implements voucher system to deter BCS scalping
By LISA GILL
Alligator Contributing Writer
Scalping national championship tickets
isn't going to pay the rent this January.
With only 1,200 UF student tickets avail-
able for the Bowl Championship Series
National Championship Game, student tick-
ets will have to be picked up in Glendale,
Ariz., the University Athletic Association
said in an e-mail Monday.
Students who purchase the $175 tickets
through the G.A.T.O.R.S. automated phone
system will have to show their Gator 1
Cards to pick up vouchers for their tickets
in Gainesville. They will then fill out the
voucher with their personal information,
which will be matched to their IDs and the
information on file, according to Student
Ticket Manager Mark Gajda.
The students may then pick up their
nontransferable tickets at the University
of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale with their
vouchers, Gator 1 and driver's licenses two
hours before kickoff, he said. The seats will
be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
The voucher system, which worked for
the 1996 championship, is intended to stop
student-ticket scalping, he said.
"The bottom line is we want to see stu-
dents in the student seats," Gajda said.
Jared Lee, an aero-
._ space engineering ju-
'-- l nior, said he liked the
voucher system be-
cause it lets students

"That's the best
thing they've done for tickets -in a long
time," he said.
This change will likely leave fewer stu-
dents on the phone trying to buy them, Lee
According to Gajda, 16,000 tickets will be
sold to UF boosters for the same price as the
Lee said he was disappointed in the
number of student tickets available com-
pared to the number of booster tickets sold
"It's far more memorable to say you went
to the national- championship as a student
than to say, 'Yeah, I took a couple days off
work and took the kids,'" he said.

At first, UF junior Sharon
Agami was hesitant to respond
to the invitation she received
She said she already had
plans to celebrate the last day of
classes with friends, that is, until
she was invited to the Jewish
Student Union's Hanukkah
"I went to the party last year
and had a great time," said
Agami. "I felt bad, but I had to
cancel on my friends. I wanted
to celebrate Hanukkah early. It is
my favorite Jewish holiday."
The official holiday begins
at sundown Dec. 15 and lasts
through Dec. 23, but JSU's event
will be held Wednesday.
Grant Hubsher, Jewish
Student Union president, said
Hanukkah is the Jewish festival
of lights, which commemorates
the rededication of the holy tem-
ple by the Jewish people after
their victory over the Syrians.
After obtaining control over the
temple there was only enough
oil for the candle to bur one
day, but miraculously, it burned
"This is why so many people
love this holiday," he said. "The
holiday allows us to celebrate
for eight days. It's a great cel-
The union represents and
serves Jewish and non-Jewish
students with the opportunity
to explore cultural and ethnic
experiences, Hubsher said. It is
hosting the event to bring UF
students together to celebrate.
The party begins at 8 p.m. at
the Lubavitch-Chabad Jewish
Center, 2021 NW Fifth Ave. The
event is free and is open to all
Huibsher said that there will
be a bonfire and an ice sculpture
of a menorah.
"These parties get better ev-
ery year," Agami said.
Hubsher said that he plans
to have sushi chefs at the event
to help attract more

sushi," he said.
Jackie Ginzburg, president
of Lubavitch-Chabad Student
Group, said that this is a great
opportunity for students to get
together and celebrate before
"We try and make fun events
for all Jewish holidays," she
said. "Hanukkah is a great time
for presents, songs and food."

Jewish Student Union is online
"I think any opportunity to
reach out to students and get
them involved in the Gainesville
and UF Jewish community is
a great thing," Ginzburg said.

Out of order
SG judiciary should steer
clear of voting debate
W e never thought we'd say this, but here goes damn
those activist judges. Who are they to-govem us?
After all, nobody voted for them. Hell, most stu-
dents couldn't pick them out of a lineup. But somehow, the UF
Supreme Court will decide the future of online voting.
We don't know how the justices will rule. No one does. But,
one way or the other, they'll make a decision before the semes-
ter ends and that's the problem. The court's job is to interpret
UF's Student Body Constitution. It has no business butting into
a political controversy.
Oh, and before you ask no, there's nothing in the constitu-
tion that prohibits online voting. Article VI, which deals with
elections, doesn't mention the Internet, "secured-site" systems
or even paper ballots. In fact, it's completely silent on voting
The only rule against online voting is in Student
Government's election code, which forbids any voting method
that isn't allowed in real Florida elections for mayors, governors
and the like. If SG wanted to, it could change the election code
overnight. Presto! You've got true online voting.
SG won't do that, naturally even though more than 80
percent of the student body wants to vote online. Like the Gator
Party before it, the Swamp Party knows higher voter turnout
could loosen the Greek machine's grip on campus politics.
Of course, you don't win any popularity contests by telling
four out of five voters to get bent. That's why SG took its case
to the Supreme Court. If the court rules against online voting,
Swamp's off the hook. Sorry, but you heard the chief justice
- it's out of our hands!
Shame on Student Body President John Boyles for trying
to trick the voters. But most of all, shame on the UF Supreme
Court for playing along in the future, we hope the justices
stay in their own lane. SG needs a truly independent judiciary.
Happy holidays, folks
In case you've been liv-
ing under a rock, we've
got something to tell
you today's the last day
of classes. No, seriously.
And this paper, the one
you're reading now? It's the

it's right back to the daily

Some easy fixes for
One thing I like about UF President Bernie Machen
and much of the UF administration is the common
belief that there's always room for improvement.
Whether their methods are effective or not, we should al-
ways develop new ways to improve our university.
With that in mind, I've come up with a few ways to
transform UF from a great university to an absolutely
freaking amazing university. Keep in mind, of course, that
these are only ideas. I haven't worked out the minute de-
tails yet but you need to start somewhere, right?
First of all, would it be possible to convince the res-
taurants on University Avenue to start accepting Gator 1
Cards? Don't want to go to Gator Comer Dining Center?
Head over to Firehouse Subs. Tired of Broward Dining
Hall? Grab lunch over at The Pita Pit.
Yes, UF would lose some revenue, but I bet students
would love it. Perhaps UF could even add a surcharge for
frequenting off-campus vendors. I'd gladly pay an extra
buck or so if it meant I could get Chipotle on declining
A more feasible idea for improvement would be to
regularly upgrade the dorms= I'm not talking about in-
stalling marble tiling or anything crazy. I mean making
sure everything is in working order and replacing it
when it's not.
For instance, half the dryers in my dorm have been
broken since the start of the semester, and there has still
been no noticeable work done on them. All of us campus-
dwellers would be better off with an even more efficient
Inter-Residence Hall Association.
How about this: Let's make more student seats avail-
able for away games.
SNow, I'm not going to fool myself into thinking anyone
actually cares about students when it comes to sporting
events. Everyone knows they're just meant to get money
UF's big problems
S from alumni and commercial
But only 1,500 student seats
for the Southeastern Conference
Championship? When the Georgia
Dome holds 80,000 or more? Give
Dan Burroughs me a break!
Dan Demands And as for the more serious is-
firstname.lastname@example.org sues, UF shouldn't deter able and
promising students from attend-
ing by reducing its National Merit
Scholarships. It's in the university's interest to attract the
best students it can.
To that end, let's partner up with some of the local
Gainesville schools and improve the educational stan-
dards there so they can produce their own able and prom-
ising students. Every great university could use a few
feeder schools, right?
Speaking of which, UF as a whole should stop being so
stingy with the cash when it is needed and stop loosen-
ing the purse strings when it's not.
UF students and the opportunities offered by this cam-
pus should be the first priority, and the administration's
expenditures should reflect that. Money shouldn't go into
the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences' faulty budgets or
Machen's overinflated paycheck.
And speaking of CLAS, what should we do about it?
Set up a system of accountability. And for God's sake, if
the budget doesn't even out, then don't approve it!
Like my ideas or hate them, we should all be trying
to come up with some of our own. Machen has his own
ideas for a better UF let's make sure ours make the cut

Letters to the Editor
'Minus' grades won't reverse grade inflation
In her Tuesday column supporting "minus" grades,
Jessica Holland made a glaring error. She decried
grade inflation at UF, but Holland seems to believe
that, under the proposed grading system, professors
will give students A-minuses instead of B-pluses.
I don't understand how giving a student an earned
A, even if it is 89.5 percent, is grade inflation while giv-
ing a student an A-minus with an 89.4 percent is not.
Moreover, grade inflation has afflicted many of
UF's peer institutions including the University
of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, which uses minus
Don't blame Muslims for France's recent riots
Monday's editorial, "Quran ban," did a decent job
of conveying its message. However, as a Muslim, I felt
alienated when the Alligator associated last year's Paris
riots with Muslims. That is far from the truth about
as truthful, in fact, as calling the 1992 Los Angeles riots

Institute hosts early Kwanzaa cultural celebration
By ALEX TIEGEN
Kharrie Wimberly has faith. It is
the meaning of her Swahili middle
name, Imani. And it's one of the
reasons why Kwanzaa, which fo-
cuses on faith as one of its seven
principles, is special to her.
Wimberly, a sixth grader, cel-
ebrated Kwanzaa with about 40
other guests Tuesday night in
the Rion Ballroom. Though the
holiday begins Dec. 26, the guests
celebrated early so UF students
could attend before going home
for Winter Break.
In the ballroom, the Caribbean
Student Association's dance team
flipped their skirts and swayed to
traditional music. A pair of danc-
ers also joined the celebration as a
student in a red dress stomped to

Pastor David Richardson plays a closing piece with backup from The Forces of Kwanzaa singers at the
holiday celebration in the Rion Ballroom.
Kwanzaa was created in 1966
to provide black Americans
with an Afrocentric alternative
to Christmas. The holiday was
founded by Ron "Maulana"
Karenga, founder of the United
Slaves black nationalist organiza-
tion and university professor, in
1966. It is a cultural celebration,
not a religious holiday.
Each night, families light a can-
dle in seven-stalked candelabras
and celebrate a different Kwanzaa
principle with a Swahili name. The
first night celebrates Umoja, or
unity. The holiday also celebrates
principles of self-determination,
collective work and responsibility.
"It does embrace principles that
are important," said Darius Bost,
director of the Institute of Black

UF health plan arrives late for some
By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
A few months ago, Jaimy Mann got an
She and her husband had talked about
having a baby in January 2007, when UF's
new health insurance plan is set to kick
in, but she became pregnant this Summer.
Now. Jaimy is falling into debt trying to
keep up with pregnancy expenses.
After 30 years of saying no, UF will offer
free health insurance to about 4,500 gradu-
ate assistants this Spring but for students
like Jaimy, the university's move came too
late. Because Jaimy became pregnant before
her GatorGradCare insurance is set to take
effect, the insurance company won't cover
the costs of her pregnancy.
Additionally, Jaimy didn't know that
her current insurance plan doesn't cover
pregnancies. As a graduate student earn-
ing $15,000 a year and working to pay off
$60,000 in college debt, she just picked the
She and her husband, Brian, are relying
on credit cards to pay for their pregnancy.
So far, they have spent about $7,000.
To save money, Jaimy is delivering her
baby with midwives rather than in the
hospital. A natural delivery means no anes-
thesia. Though this method is about $4,000
cheaper than a hospital delivery, she won-
ders if she'll be able to take the pain.
"The birth is the scary part ... and that
something would go wrong," she said.
Brian, who is also a UF graduate stu-
dent, knows about Jaimy's fears. But he also
knows that as graduate students, a natural
delivery is all they can afford.
Their salaries total $30,000 a year.
Brian's salary comes from a fashion
company in Los Angeles. Since he free-
lances his work, the company does not offer
him health insurance.
Jaimy came to Gainesville in 2004 to
pursue a doctoral degree in children's lit-
erature. Her dream is to become a professor
and an author.
Brian moved to Gainesville a year later
to be near his wife. Once here, he decided
to pursue a master's degree in fine arts with
a concentration in digital media. Like his
wife, he eventually wants to teach.
To make more money, Brian had
planned to get a second job as a teaching as-
sistant with the College of Fine Arts, but he
ultimately declined the position because the
college only offered $270 every two weeks
- roughly $5,000 a year.
To help the couple's financial situation,
"We don't live in extreme pov-
erty, but we are short in money."
Jaimy tried to apply for Medicaid, a federal
health services program, but her applica-
tion for full coverage was denied. She ap-
pealed the decision, but appeals usually
take months, and Medicaid doesn't refund
any expenses, she said.
By the time she gets an answer, her baby,
whom she has named Querelle, might al-
ready be in her arms.
Todd Reynolds, chief steward for,
Graduate Assistants United, UF's graduate
student union, said the university often cit-
ed insufficient funding as a reason to deny
health insurance to graduate students.
"It was not seen as a priority," he said.
But Reynolds, who helped UF search for
the best insurance plan, also mentioned the
plan's positive features.
GatorGradCare offers a maximum of $1
million in coverage for each injury or illness
and a $2,000 cap on prescriptions. Another
UF health insurance plan offers $100,000 for
each injury or illness and has a $600 cap on
Reynolds also helped negotiate a $400
subsidy for graduate assistants' health in-
surance during the 2004-2005 school year.
During the last school year, he helped in-
crease that subsidy to $500.
Because the new plan starts in Spring,
graduate assistants received a $250 subsidy
this Fall as well.
UF spokesman Steve Orlando said he
didn't know why the university didn't offer
health insurance to its graduate assistants
in the past.
However, he said President Bemie
Machen might have decided to offer it to
remain competitive with other top schools
and to boost graduate-student recruitment.
Though GratorGradCare won't pay for
Mann's pregnancy, she will still receive the
plan's other benefits this Spring. However,
if she wants to add Querelle to her policy,
she would have to pay about $500 a semes-
ter out of pocket.
Jaimy and Brian smile when they talk
about Querelle. Jaimy often caresses her
belly, and she likes showing off her baby's
first pictures black-and-white scanned
copies of an ultrasound.
Now entering her eighth month of preg-
nancy, Jaimy has gained about 30 pounds.
Her prepregnancy clothes don't fit any-
more, so she is selling them on eBay.
Jaimy is applying for a $32,000 fellow-
ship with the University of San Francisco.
"I don't know if I am going to get it," she
said, brushing the subject aside.
The fellowship would alleviate the
couple's financial situation and could help
Jaimy in eventually pursuing a career.
The soon-to-be parents have received a
few gifts for Querelle's arrival in February,
but they know they would need more to
pay for 10 diapers a day and a myriad of
"We don't live in extreme poverty, but
we are short in money," Brian said.

Senate President Josh Weiss, who
ran with the Swamp Party this Fall,
has worked to bring more covered
bus stops to campus, though not
all of the locations have been deter-
mined. The new shelters will appear
on campus by August 2007, he said.
Weiss also said the Reitz Union

fought for would be placed in union

they're making progress with goals,

"If they do something good, I'll pat
their backs; but there hasn't been-
enough of that."
SBoyles said the first half of his
term has seemed like "a blur to me
on one hand, and on the other
it seems like it's been forever,"
he said. "There's six months left
- we've got a lot left to do."
Creating outdoor rink in subtropical climate requires complicated steps
ICE, from page 1
in a subtropical state.
Hundreds of half-inch plastic pipes are laid lengthwise
across the sand-covered rink.
"Then comes the chiller," Holland said.
The chiller is a massive contraption that looks like a dozen
AC units mounted atop a 9-foot-tall, 22-foot-long steel box. It is
filled with 12 55-gallon drums of antifreeze and water.
The chiller brings the antifreeze mix down to about 12 de-
grees, and then a large pump sends the below-freezing mixture
coursing through the network of pipes.
Water is then sprayed on top of the pipes in layers, and the
ice begins to form.
"Once the chiller makes ice," Holland said, "it cuts on and
off like your air conditioner."
Bill Bryson, the city's events coordinator, said the skating
rink has returned this year because of its popularity, despite the
fact that it didn't make a profit in 2005.
"It came in a little below break-even last year because one of
the sponsors didn't come through," Bryson said.
From Thursday through Dec. 17, the rink will open at noon
on weekends and 4 p.m. on weekdays. Between Dec. 18 and
Jan. 1, the hours will be noon until midnight every day. The
Plaza Ice Palace will be cosed on Christmas Day.
It costs $8 to skate and $2 to rent ice skates.

UF MEN'S BASKETBALL
Gators hope for turnaround against Providence
By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
Losing to Kansas was regret-
table, but losing to Florida State
was just plain deplorable.
S"We definitely have to go back to
having fun," forward Joakim Noah
said, "and having fun is winning.
When you lose, it's not as fun."
The Gators will try to create a
kid-in-a-candy-store type of fun
.tonight at 7 when they take on
Coach Billy Donovan's alma mater,
After its loss to unranked FSU
on Sunday night, the UF men's bas-
ketball team (7-2) fell from fourth
to seventh in both the Associated
Press and ESPN/USA Today
Andy Apicella / Alligator
UF junior forward Joakim Noah is hounded by Florida State forwards Al Thornton (12) and Uche Echefu
(41) and guard Jason Rich (25) on Dec. 3 during the Gators' 70-66 loss to the Seminoles.
The Gators did not lose their
second game last season until Jan.
25. While UF is not 100 percent
healthy forward Corey Brewer
is missing in action with mono-
nucleosis, and Noah is still battling
a respiratory infection Donovan
said illness was not the team's big-
The Gators turned over the ball
19 times, and the Seminoles capital-
ized by taking 14 extra shots as a
"The thing that was disappoint-
ing to me in the turnovers was we
talked about that and then it was
from our key guys," Donovan
said. "It was from Lee Humphrey
and Taurean (Green) and Joakim
and Al (Horford). ... You've got to
give (FSU's) kids credit that they
made some tough plays when they
needed to, but we also probably
gave them wide open points where
we didn't have a chance to get back
and stop them."
UF's defense also struggled, as
Noah and Horford combined for 10
rebounds and one block.
"I think what me and Al have
to do a better job of is doing what
we did last year," Noah said.
"And that's playing defense and
rebounding and blocking shots and
doing things that affect winning."
UF is lacking a huge defensive
threat without Brewer, who leads
the team with 2.3 steals per game.
But a Christmas miracle may
come early this year for the Gators.
Brewer is doing better than
expected and may be back in hisr-
ange and blue uniform in time for
UF's matchup against No. 5 Ohio
State on Dec. 23.
"I do have a level of optimism
that he could be back before
Christmas if all goes well, which
would be pretty good," Donogan
Donovan said Brewer told him
he feels fine, and the forward has
watched from the sidelines during
However, the Gators are still
waiting for doctors to give Brewer
the OK for physical contact.
"He's going to class, he's walk-
ing around. This is not a bed-rid-
den illness that he's on the flat of
his back," Donovan said. "He can
do anything; it's just the sweating
and being under physical stress
and under physical contact aren't
what (the doctors) want him to do
After their game against
Providence tonight, the Gators
have an 11-day hiatus to work out
some of the recent kinks before
their next game.
"You learn from your mistakes,
and this is very early in the season
and there's a lot of basketball to be
played," Noah said. "I feel like if
everybody on this team isn't will-
ing to change, then it's going to
be a really long season. We need to
change if we want to do something

UF hosts Minnesota in regionals
By JOSH ARMSTRONG
It's a rematch kind of.
When the No. 9-seed UF volley-
ball team (30-2) hosts eighth-seeded
Minnesota (25-7) in the Sweet 16 on
Friday night at 7, it will be the second
time the teams meet this season.
Can't find it on the schedule?
That's because the first rendez-
vous was a pair of practice matches.
Minnesota visited the Gale Lemerand
Athletic Center in the spring for two
No Gators player could recollect
the score, but redshirt freshman mid-
dle blocker Kristina Johnson vaguely
What senior defensive special-
ist Rhian Davis did take from the
practice was that Minnesota has a
soliddefense up front with a pair
of big outside hitters in 6-foot-4
Kyla Roehrig and 6-foot-1 Meghan
This could translate into a long
night for UF's front row, which has
outblocked its opponents 27-9 so far
in the NCAA Tournament.
Also in the Gainesville Regional

The Huskers will face 16th-seeded
San Diego at 4:30 p.m. before the
Gators take on the Gophers.
Davis said that while she can't
control what happens Friday, she
would like to knock off the No. 1
"I want to play a great team,"
Davis said. "If you get to the final
rounds, you want to face the best four
teams in the country.
"I don't want an easy road."
If Nebraska goes to the Final Four,
it will:have home-court advantage,
since the final rot will be played
in Omaha, Neb.
"If you get to the final
rounds, you want to face

UF senior defensive specialist
"That's a lot of motivation," junior
outside hitter Marcie Hampton said,
"especially for a Nebraska team that
draws thousands and thousands of
fans. It's going to be a sea of red if
they make it back home."
Nebraska eliminated UF from last
year's tournament in the regional
finals. It has never advanced to the
Final Four when not hosting a re-
As the field narrows, the Gators
must adjust to a new role: underdog.
UF could play the rest of the tour-
nament without facing a lower seed,
but junior setter Angie McGinris said
there's not much disparity between
the teams at this stage.
"Here and there, there's little dif-
ferences," McGinnis said. "Every
one of them has that one really good
With the elevated competition,
unforced errors can equal the end of
Said Davis: "No matter who
you play,-the cracks get smaller and
smaller. Its all about who has the
least amount of errors."
UF averages only 4.9 hitting er-
rors per game to Minnesota's 6.2. The
Gophers also average more service
errors per game, leading UF 2.9-2.2.
Johnson said she relishes the op-
portunity and that UF can make a
major statement with a Final Four
"Yeah, ninth ranking, obviously,"
Johnson said. "Anyone ranked ninth
has something to prove."
SEC STRUGGLES: Though seven SEC
teams made it into the tournament,
UF is the only one to advance to the
Tennessee and Arkansas failed to
advance despite hosting the first and
second rounds. Kentucky is the only
other SEC team besides UF to win a
match in the tournament this year.
"We're a little bummed," Hampton
said. "LSU got a really bad draw."
The Tigers had to fly across the
country to California Polytechnic for
their first-round match, which they
lost to California 3-1.
Tim Casey/ Alligator Staff
UF senior defensive specialist Rhian Davis serves against UCF.
Davis and the Gators will play Minnesota on Friday.
Siler predicted national championship when Meyer arrived in 2004
FOOT, from page 27
"At that time, it was fragile," Meyer said.
"It could have imploded.".
SBut the championship pipe dreams under
Zook suddenly became reachable goals.
"I made a statement in our first pep rally
when (Meyer) got here about the vibe that I
got from him in his first meeting," linebacker
Brandon Siler said. "I said, 'We're going to win
a national championship.' That's what I said
a long time ago, and I think about that when
I watch him."
During Meyer's first spring camp, Lewis
crossed the line to cornerback and fought his
way into the starting lineup a year later.
A national championship would help the
Jacksonville native forget his days on offense,
"Our next thing is to bring that title back to
Gainesville," Lewis said. "If we do that, it can
put all that past and history behind." '
Meyer has had the same impact with high
school stars as he has with upperclassmen.
"He said while he was recruiting us that
you'll have a chance to play for the national ti-
tle," freshman Percy Harvin said. "Whether it
was this year or-three years later, he said we'd
have a chance to play for the national title."
The Gators freshman played a prominent.
role this season.
Harvin garnered MVP honors at
Saturday night's Southeastern Conference
Championship win against Arkansas. His
performance, gaining 167 total yards and two
touchdowns on 11 touches, capped an injury-
riddled yet successful season
for the UF freshman.
"It wasn't just me," said
Harvin, the SEC Freshman
Football of the Year. "Our whole class
wanted to contribute."
That included backup quarterback Tim
Tebow, who has been used more as a battering
ram than as a gunslinger. Tebow gives all the
credit to Meyer.
"There's always potential at the University
of Florida," Tebow said. "I think Coach Meyer
is a perfect coach to get that potential out ofthe
players. You see the great job that he's done."
But there have been speed bumps on
Meyer's highway to success.
In addition to a loss at Auburn, the situ-
ation with troubled defensive tackle Marcus
Thomas and also end Jarvis Moss kept
the Gators from a perfect season.
Still, the team has stayed dose to Thomas.
"I talked to Marcus today," said safety Tony
Joiner on Sunday, wearing a boot and sporting
crutches to protect his right ankle sprain. "He
was just happy for us. He just couldn't wait to
see us in Glendale."
Meyer still wants 8-team playoff

they're able to participate."

tor Mike Slive said he is not opposed to
"There is not any format that does not
have advantages and disadvantages,"
Slive said. "And so we have continued
to look at some alternatives, but what-
ever we do, whether we keep it the way

be done," Meyer said. "I think it's the best
available system right now. Do I like it?
No, we need to change it."

Chance of lifetime arrives for seniors
By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
Though Sunday felt like an eternity for UF's
players, the wait has actually been a few years
for some and a few months for others.
When FOX announced that UF would play
Ohio State in the national championship, the
relief poured out of seniors and freshmen alike.
Fifth-year senior cornerback Reggie Lewis,
who came in with former coach Ron Zook, re-
flected on the roller coaster ride.
"Nobody has been
through more than what
we've been through as the
seniors," said Lewis, who
has three interceptions this
season. "We've had a lot of
downs more than we've
had ups. This year we ended
Zook with a bang."
Lewis first arrived at
Gainesville as a wide receiver. While he caught
five passes in his first two seasons, the Gators
floundered with Zook at the helm;
They lost five games both years, falling in
the Outback Bowl and the Peach Bowl during
Zook's final two seasons.
When UF athletics director Jeremy Foley
hired Urban Meyer two years ago, the mood
among the Gators changed.
Meyer mentioned Zook holdovers Jarvis
Herring, Todd McCullough and Vemell Brown
as players who held the program together. The
coach has often hinted that the program was
mired in turmoil until the players turned their
attitudes around after a 30-22 loss to South
Carolina on Nov. 12,2005.

Bernie Machen hates the BCS.
Despite the fact that the No. 2 Gators
are on their way to the national champion-
ship game, UF's president won't rest easy
until a playoff system replaces the Bowl
"We have to convince other schools that
a new system can be just as lucrative and
maybe more lucrative and fair and that it
can work," Machen said after Saturday's
Southeastern Conference Championship. "I
think there's so many people that think that
way that it's just a matter of getting it done.
In the end, I think we'll do it. It's about the

Without playoffs, two teams get a one-

packing our bags tonight," Machen said
Saturday night. "Instead, we're talking

Under the current bowl format, any team
that plays in a BCS bowl brings back money
for the conference's other schools. So the
presidents of weaker programs that are un-.
likely to make these bowls have little reason
to abandon the BCS bandwagon unless,
of course, the NCAA finds a way to still
compensate them financially.
"We're the kind of school that's going to
be in whatever system there is, whether it's
the BCS or a playoff," Machen said. "But
there are a lot of other schools that won't
