Jet-lagged Gators touch down as champs


By MIKE MCCALL
Alligator Writer

When the national champion UF football
team emerged from their American Airlines
chartered jet around 6:20 p.m. on Tuesday,
their faces did not bear the looks of intense
joy and excitement as they had the night
before.
Instead, they looked relieved.
Relieved to be home, satisfied that their
long season was over, culminating in their
ultimate goal.
Beneath the jet lag and exhaustion,
there was still a quiet en-
Sthusiasm and sense of ac-
S complishment, much like the
look of a child who snuck
FoOt ll onto the biggest thrill ride at
an amusement park.
As the team's flight approached the
runway around 6:05, news trucks waited
in the parking lot and helicopters circled
overhead, covering the air nearly as thor-
ouglily as UF had in holding the Buckeyes
to just 35 yards passing.
A crowd of media and cameramen
swarmed the tarmac to get a glimpse of
the champions as they emerged from the
plane.
Led by linebacker Earl Everett who
made one of the game's biggest plays
by sacking OSU quarterback Troy Smith

tered buses and a police escort awaited
them.

STUDENT LIFE

Tired, happy students return to Gainesville after game

The roar of the crowd and the
pound of the Gator chomp slowly
died as University Avenue trans-
formed from chaos to silence early
Tuesday morning.
The silence broke when the first
students arrived on campus and
trudged to class.
Some scrapped the idea of attend-
ing Tuesday classes and celebrated
their team's national championship
win until dawn, while others made
it home by 1 a.m. and prepared for

"I went to bed at 3 a.m., and I

Holmes, who followed the crowd

was shocked to see rowdy students

UF introduces hybrid cars as part of rental program


* THE CARS CAN BE RENTED BY THE
HOUR OR DAY.

By JOANNA BLAZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

In an effort to reduce traffic jams and create
a more sustainable campus, UF is introducing
a car-sharing program for UF students and
faculty.
The UF Physical Plant Division has part-
nered with Flexcar, a company that rents
environmentally friendly vehicles by the day
or the hour. The program offers an alternative


to owning a car, with rates of $5.50 an hour or
$55 a day.
"The overarching goal is to provide people
with an alternative to driving to work and
school and to reduce carbon emissions by do-
ing so," said Dedee DeLongpre, director of the
UF Office of Sustainability. She is taking part
in implementing the ride-sharing program at
UF. The cost of bringing eight cars on campus
is $6,500 a month, which is being paid for by
the UF Physical Plant Division.
Flexcar offers hybrid vehicles, minivans,
sport utility vehicles and pickup trucks. The
hourly or daily rate of the rental car includes
gas, insurance, maintenance and roadside as-


"It reduces the amount of cars
on campus, which helps the
environment."

distance.
"A lot of universities are already using
ride-sharing," said DeLongpre." It reduces the
amount of cars on campus, which helps the
environment."
After offers from many companies,
DeLongpre and Allan Preston, coordinator of


the UF Physical Plant Division, both decided
to do business with Flexcar because the com-
pany rents cars to individuals 18 and older, so
most students can rent the cars.
Flexcar has parked eight of its vehicles in
convenient spots around campus, such as the
Reitz Union. In order to rent a car, students
will first need to pay an annual membership
fee of $35.
Some officials believe that ride-sharing is
the next step in UF's sustainability push.
"We cannot continue to operate this way,"
said Preston. "We have to look at how we can
be more sustainable and reduce our depen-
dence on vehicles."

Fans swamp stores for championship Gator gear


2004 UF alumni Steve Rolles buys two national championship shirts and a newspaper from cashier -
Juliana Ku at Gator Plus on Monday afternoon.


By JOEY CHINDAMO
Alligator Writer
jchindamo@alligatbr.org

It's great to be a Florida Gator
retailer.
Several local vendors may start
that rallying cry, thanks to the Gators'
national championship win.
UF memorabilia began "fly-
ing off shelves when the Gators
won the Southeastern Conference
Championship on Dec. 1, storeown-
ers said.
Due to Monday's national champi-
onship victory, retailers aren't seeing
orange and blue they're seeing
dollar signs.
Joe Fincher, the owner of the Gator
Shop on West University Avenue, said
he had national championship shirts
in stock before the game started.
"We rolled the dice," he said. "We
ordered 3,000 shirts, and we would
have had to pay for it if we lost -just
throw them away. But we won."
When the Gators' victory was of-
ficial, the Gator Shop began selling
shirts on the street "five seconds
later," he said.
Then, Fincher said, trucks began
delivering memorabilia.


"The only problem was the traf-
fic," he said. "The streets were all
blocked off, so it was hard to get the
shirts here."
The store had T-shirts, hats and
collared shirts on Tuesday. But soon, it
will offer license plates, stickers, post-
ers, shot glasses and-more.
"We're pretty much going to
have anything that says 'National
Champions' on it," said Fincher's
daughter, Joi, who
Around also works in the
S .' store.
The Official
Gator Sportshop in
Ben Hill Griffin Stadium waited until
the game was over to order its prod-
ucts, said Karen Stagliano, the store's
assistant manager.
"I had hats here on stipulation
riot to open the boxes until we won,"
Stagliano said. "But we didn't have
anything else printed until we won."
Manager Steve Young said 3,000
shirts and 900 hats were delivered.
The store plans to receive 8,000 shirts
and 3,500 hats in total.
"When (UF) won the SEC, sales
tripled," Stagliano said. "With a na-
tional championship? We'll probably
double that."

Wormy Apple

One bad fruit spoils the

iBunch
U unless you've been living under an iRock, you prob-
ably know by now that Apple Computers is a pretty
dominant force on the technology scene.
It started with the redesigned iMac. First there were the
ones that came in pretty colors both desktop and laptop
versions followed by that one that was practically just a
monitor.
And then came the notorious iPod. And in a few months,
we can all sit back and watch our Apple TVs a box that
allows you to bridge the gap between your computer and TV
so you can watch full-size videos downloaded from iTunes,
the little music store that now boasts more than 2 million
legal downloads.
Well, now they've taken it one step further with the un-
veiling of the iPhone. It plays music and videos, it has Google
maps, it runs Mac software, it takes pictures.
And oh yeah, you can even call people with it.
It also costs at least $500.
To make a full iDay of it, CEO Steve Jobs announced that
Apple Computers is rebranding itself as Apple Inc. in order
to associate itself with consumer electronics
Where are the bygone days of Apple as the black iSheep of
the computer world? The split with Bill Gates, the shorts and
flip-flops worn to work?
When did Apple get so ... iCorporate?
The company's stock increased four-fold after the an-
nouncement, naturally.
While Apple still makes great iProducts, its target audi-
ence has shifted. Instead of being touted as the ultimate iMa-
chine for graphic designers and movie makers you know,
the cool kids today's models are now fit for the common
iMan. Unacceptable!
And what is with Apple's products being so damn user-
friendly? The -iPhone boasts "visual voicemail," allowing
you to choose from a list of voicemails to listen to. Never
again will you have to listen to pleas from your ex asking
you to take him or her back!
And that clickwheel on the iPod whoever came up
with that one is nothing short of an iGenius. Seriously. We
can change the volume with just the swirl of a button.
But the root of this whole problem is that love-to-hate-it
iPod. Suddenly, hipsters and scene kids could carry their
crazy indie beats around with them in a neat little (white)
package. You know, bands like the Orange Flashlights and
Macram6 Cupholder. But then, the preps and the jocks got
iWind of this phenomenon and filled theirs with Jay-Z and
Carrie Underwood.
But when those same preps and jocks continue along their
paths toward law iSchool, they start thinking, "Hey, this iPod
is pretty cool. I wonder what Apple Inc.'s computers are like
... but I just hope they run Microsoft Word!"
And then we have an iProblem.
It's one thing to reach out to new sectors of the market
and get your share of the iPie. But when a great company
like Apple starts focusing less on creating amazing software
and more on little gadgets, it makes you wonder if next, God
forbid, it's a shirt and tie for the workplace and then an
anti-trust case might not be too far behind.
But on that note, we still all wish we could afford an
iPhone. If someone dropped one off at the Alligator office,
you know we'd all be fighting to the death over it.

Championship celebrations show students' true colors


W e came to Arizona, we played with
pigskin, we conquered Ohio State
... so what did we do on our home
turf to celebrate?
We got trashed and shimmied up poles
like monkeys.
In his letter to the student body Monday,
UF President Bernie Machen wrote, "It is
our hope that all UF students that celebrate
after tonight's game ... enjoy themselves in a
responsible way." The message surrounding
the hype of.the Bowl Championship Series
National Championship game was to show
the world "how great it is to be a Florida
Gator" and "what it means to be a member of
the Gator Nation."
Apparently, this message went in one
ear and out the other. And it's a little-know
fact that gators (the animals) have excellent
hearing.
The Stephen C. O'Connell Center, before


opening its doors at 6:30 p.m., was a mad-
house. No one thought to create an orderly
line, so by the time doors finally opened, the
crowd turned disorderly. Guys hurled their
girlfriends over gates, and others brutally
shoved their way inside, almost trampling
some tiny freshmen. Anyone caught in the
current of orange and blue couldn't escape.
I'm sure the free T-shirts being handed out
were to blame for the greedy rush of bodies.
During the game, students remained
responsible fans despite a few instances of
flipping OSU the bird or some meek attempts
at crowd surfing. What really got under
my skin was when people laughed at hurt
Buckeyes and smugly waved them off the
field. How would we react if an OSU student
laughed at Chris Leak or Reggie Nelson for
injuring his leg?
When our 41-14 victory was announced,
it was music to everyone's ears. I just didn't


April Dudash know how seductive
Speaking Out this music would be
as everyone screamed
and ran toward University Avenue like
brides-to-be at a wedding dress clearance
sale. Toilet paper soared through the air like
soft, downy missiles, and fireworks exploded
just above everyone's heads.
People were packed like sardines as they
hollered and celebrated, singing their praise
for the Gators. The streets smelled of beer,
sweat and triumph a bittersweet combina-
tion that I only want to sniff once a year. Men
began ripping off their shirts, despite their
obvious flab, and climbed the University of
Florida sign until police officers beckoned
them down. Women shook their booties en-
thusiastically. People posed for pictures with
cops. Others, their eyes glazed over and their
breath reeking, bumped like pinballs into the
,-revellers without apology.


After having too much profanity thrown
my way because I accidentally stepped on
someone's shoe or stared at a self-conscious
drunk for too long, I knew the party was over
for me. My off-campus home didn't even of-
fer me its usual silence as my smashed neigh-
bors sang to "beautiful ladies" walking down
the street and the squeals of tires echoed
throughout the block.
Windows were broken, fires were started
and reputations were shattered. The UF
Police Department alone made three DUI
arrests last night around campus. What I
don't get is that we are a college chock-full
of prestige, intellect, aspiring young minds
and a gracious faculty, and I can't even peace-
fully enjoy our victory without being called
"precious" by an older inebriated man on my
way home.
April Dudash is a journalism freshman.

Fans boisterous but well-behaved in late-night celebration


By JAMES RIGNEY
Alligator Writer
jrigney@alligator.org

A naked man running across West
University Avenue after Monday night's
football victory was hit and critically in-
jured by a car.
Matthew Todd Schlagheck, 23, of
Longwood, hit his head on the car's
windshield when he darted into west-
bound traffic on University Avenue near
the Sfephen C. O'Connell Center at 1:06
a.m., said Gainesville Police Department
spokesman Keith Kameg. Schlagheck
was transported by ambulance to Shands
atUE
"We wish that individual had not been
hurt, but in scope of celebration taking
place, the celebration went well," Kameg.
said.
Witnesses said Schlagheck appeared
to.be celebrating the Gators' win when he
was hit.
Besides a few arrests, police did not
report any other major incidents.
In the rock-concert atmosphere of the
area surrounding University Avenue and
SNorthwest 17th-Street, the epicenter of the
postgame celebration, one reveler set fire


to a small Christmas tree. The fire-starter
was arrested, Kameg said.
Some fans lit fireworks and sang Gators
fight songs while police observed.
Other fans tried to climb light poles,
which had been greased earlier to prevent
people from doing so. Several celebrators
climbed on electrical boxes, fences and
even palm trees.
"The fans and students should
be commended for their
behavior."
Keith Kameg
Gainesville Police Department
spokesman

Kameg said the area surrounding
University Avenue was cear by 2:30 a.m.
and reopened by 4 a.m.
Kameg said he gives the fans and
students a B-plus grade for their conduct
during the celebration.
"There's this realization that you don't
have to destroy everything to celebrate,"
he said. "The fans and students should be
commended for their behavior."


The corner of University Avenue and Buckman Drive stands deserted late Monday night, after
the roaring crowd of celebrating Gators fans finally dispersed.

Giving Gators the glory
UF fans gather on the corner of 39th Avenue and Waldo Road to cheer on the Gators' return as
the team leaves the Gainesville Regional Airport on Tuesday evening. The airport was closed to
the public, but many gathered along Waldo Road to show their support.

Offense to adapt, return even stronger under Tebow


By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. Several
hours after suggesting he might be
joined at the hip with quarterback
Chris Leak for the next few de-
cades, Coach Urban Meyer handed
off the baton.
"It is Tim Tebow's team as of
right now, and a lot of these young
guys will have to pick up the
slack," Meyer said.
Tuesday morning, a sheepishly
content coach was already evaluat-
ing what is to come next season.
And for UF, the future is quite
bright.
The Gators shocked the college
football world Monday night by
upsetting No.-1 Ohio State 41-14.
But in 2007, anchored by Tebow
and electric freshmen receivers
Percy Harvin, Jarred Fayson and
Riley Cooper, the Gators should
only be better offensively.
Having Tebow, Harvin and
company on the same offense
could result in an unstoppable
arsenal.


Meyer is willing to cater to their
speed and revert I _, to more of
the spread-option plays he perfect-
ed with quarterback Alex Smith in
Utah during the 2004 season.
"I think Tim will be very similar
to Alex," Meyer said. "I think Tim
Tebow brings to the table one of
the greatest competitors and lead-
ers. What style of offense (do I
expect)? I expect us to run a little
more option, a little more quarter-
back run. But a lot of that depends
on who our backup is, because you
can't jeopardize running him as
much as he'd like to run."
Don't lose sight of UF's losses
defensively, either. Next season,
the Gators won't have linemen
Ray McDonald, Joe Cohen, Steven
Harris and linebackers Earl Everett
and Brian Crum.
Also, defensive end Jarvis
Moss, linebacker Brandon Siler
and safety Reggie Nelson could all
decide to forgo their senior seasons
-and join the NFL draft.
"Facts are facts. The defensive
line we lose quite a bit," Meyer

Leak not only matched
what only one other Gators
quarterback Danny Wuerffel
- has done, he exceeded him
while having to endure more.
Wuerffel never had to change
coaches midstream. He was never
threatened by a jaw-dropping
backup. He never had to face
invincible Ohio State, who, by the
way, had a Heisman Trophy-win-
ning quarterback who was sup-
posed to be the best player on the
field Monday night.

* WITH NATIONAL TITLE WIN, GATORS
LOOK FOR UPSWING IN RECRUITING.

By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
nzaccardi@alligator.org

PARADISE VALLEY, Ariz. UF coach Urban
Meyer received 250 text messages between winning
the national championship and his press conference
Tuesday morning.
Meyer wouldn't say who sent them, but a por-
tion may have come from high school stars unde-
cided on their futures.
"I know where I would want to go," Meyer said
multiple times Tuesday. "Am I allowed to say that
for recruiting?"
Several Gators played their final game Monday
night, but nine replacements attended classes at the
Gainesville campus for the first time that same day.
"I can't think of anybody in the country that
has nine nine guys that showed up for class on
Monday," Meyer said. "And I'm sure they think
they didn't have to go to class (Tuesday) because
we won a national championship. I assure you
that's why I'm going home.
"It gives them a little bit of juice, a little head start
going into their freshman year."
Meyer said he's going to sign 27 recruits this


year and according to Scout.com, he already has 22
commitments.
The Web site ranks the Gators No. 1 in its latest
team recruiting rankings, edging Texas.
In December, Ocala Trinity Catholic quarterback
John Brantley decommitted from Texas to join the
Gators.
Brantley joins a crowded position in UF recruit-
ing.
Cameron Newton and Bryan Waggener have
already committed to UF, according to Scout.
The Web site ranks Newton, an
Atlanta Westlake High product, No.
13 in the quarterback class of 2007.
Waggener. is a junior college
Football transfer out of Glendora, Calif.
Brantley's switch may be a sign of
things to come.
After watching UF paste Ohio State, more could
follow suit.
."It makes it a lot easier," Rivals.com recruiting
analyst Jeremy Crabtree said. "It's not like Florida
was hurting for talent anyway. They have had an
amazing recruiting class so far. It may help other
kids swing the door."
On Saturday, UF picked up another commitment
from the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

Balanced scoring downs Hogs


By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
jmarina@alligator.org

The No. 2 UF men's basketball team was seeing
double after its 79-72 victory against Arkansas on
Tuesday night.
All five starters scored in double figures as the
Gators improved their record to 15-2 and 2-0 in the
Southeastern Conference.
Taurean Green led with 17 points, Corey Brewer
followed with 13, Joakim Noah and Lee Humphrey
both added 11 and Al Horford rounded out with 10.
The game proved to be a battle of the post men,
which was expected heading into the game.
Before Tuesday's game, UF and Arkansas were
ranked first and second, respectively, in the SEC
in rebounds allowed. Arkansas also led the SEC in
blocked shots.
So it came as no surprise that the Gators' and
Razorbacks' frontcourts neutralized each other. Both
grabbed 41 rebounds and batted away five blocks in
the game.
"We knew they were going to come at us,"
Horford said. "They are a very talented frontcourt
and group of players."
UF hopped out to an 18-8 lead, but foul trouble
caused bigs Noah, Horford and Chris Richard to sit
the bench for most of the first half. The three com-
bined for just 18 minutes.
Donovan turned to his freshmen Marreese
Speights, Jonathan Mitchell and Dan Werner to pick
up the slack, but Arkansas capitalized on the trio's
defensive inexperience.
"(Foul trouble) kind of knocked us out of whack a
little bit," Richard said. "They kind of went on a run
going into the half."
In addition,to foul trouble, the Gators continued
their foul shooting woes. The team shot 58.6 percent


from the line on 17-of-29, a small improvement from
its 50 percent performances against Georgia and
Liberty.
"The only thing I look at that I'm not thrilled
about was the free throw shooting," UF coach Billy
Donovan said. "We have to continue to get better in
that area. We're working on it. The players got to get
in around their class time when they're free for some
extra shots."
Transition plays and several dunks from
Razorbacks Sonny Weems and Patrick Beverley
spurred Arkansas to within 1 point at halftime.
But the Gators regained a huge energy boost out
of the locker room when they returned for halftime
warm-ups and a run-in with friends on the football
team, who had just finished participating in a wel-
come back celebration.
"As soon as I saw those boys at
halftime it just changed my whole
Basketball mindset" Noah said
Within the first three minutes,
Horford was fouled on a dunk,
prompting a Brewer fist pump and signature Noah
chest pound to the crowd. Horford converted the free
throw to start off an 11-3 run, which put the Gators
up by 10.
Arkansas stuck around, however, but couldn't
close the deal after 7-foot center Steven Hill and for-
ward Charles Thomas fouled out late in the game.
Three-pointers from Humphrey and Green were
key down the stretch to secure UF's win.
"I don't feel like we played as best we could,"
Horford said, "but we got the win."

HOOPS STARS CHIME IN ON TITLE GAME: While there
were many standout plays in the UF football team's
title game, Noah and Brewer particularly enjoyed
linebacker Earl Everett's helmet-less sack of Ohio
State's Troy Smith.

Rumors quashed, Spiller to remain at Clemson


By MIKE MCCALL
Alligator Writer

Clemson freshman running back C.J.
Spiller will not transfer to UF, according to a
statement released by the freshman tailback
on Tuesday.
"I discussed the situation with my mother
and I decided it is best for me to stay at
Clemson," said Spiller, who chose the Tigers
over the Gators in a surprise decision last
year.
Rumors had circulated over the past week
that Spiller was considering a transfer to UF,
and many had hoped that he would secure a
hardship transfer and not have to sit out a year
because he has a child in the state of Florida. In
the end, Spiller certified these as nothing more
than wishful thinking..
Last year, an expected announcement to
either UF or FSU became a big upset, as Spiller
donned the purple hat of the Tigers.


The choice went against the wishes of
Spiller's mother, Patricia Watkins, who was a
strong supporter of her son committing to the
Gators. Moments before he made his decision
public, Spiller slid Watkins a piece of paper
that said 'Clemson', bringing her to tears.
Spiller rushed for 914 yards and scored
10 touchdowns this season, en route to a sec-
ond-place finish in Atlantic Coast Conference
rookie of the year voting, behind Wake Forest
quarterback Riley Skinner.
As a runner, Spiller has shown the quick-
ness and explosiveness that had him ranked
among the best out of high school his 7.4
yards-per-carry this season was the sixth-best
average in the country.
He also showed his versatility out of the
backfield as a receiver, with 19 catches for 210
yards, 2 touchdowns and an 11.1 yards-per-
catch average.
In high school, Spiller was the top perform-
er for Lake Butler Union County High, just a
short drive from Gainesville.


"I discussed the situation with my
mother, and I decided it is best for
me to stay at Clemson."
C.J. Spiller
Clemson running back

"I think he's unbelievable," said Union
County coach Brian Nobles. "He did every-
thing I asked him to do as a player." '
He's like my own son. He's an even better
person than he is a player, and he's a great
one."
Spiller had a long-lasting friendship with
then Nease High quarterback Tim Tebow, and
many believed that Tebow's commitment to
UF along with Spiller living nearby would
surely land him at UF.
Spiller's decision to remain with the Tigers
will create two running back controversies:
Spiller will likely continue to split carries with


James Davis at Clemson, while thetompeti-
tion for the Gators' running back spot, vacated
by senior DeShawn Wynn, will be wide open.
Now the job falls to a large group of play-
ers, as sophomores Markus Manson and
Kestahn Moore, freshmen Brandon James,
Chevon Walker and Mon Williams, and high
school commits Chris Rainey (Lakeland High,
Lakeland, Fla.) and Bo Williams (Northeast
High, Oakland Park, Fla.) will all have a shot
at the position.
James has flourished on special teams as a
return specialist, but his size will likely limit
him from being the premier back.
Rainey, another small back, will likely be
used mffore at the receiver position, although
he has expressed a desire to be a running
back.
Moore is the most experienced of the
group, but Mon Williams may be the fan
favorite, after he dazzled Gators fans with
his performance in this year's game against
Western Carolina.


Even with limited exposure, fans enjoy opportunity to see champs


ARRIVAL, from page 1

Due to enforcement by
Gainesville police, fans were not
allowed to attend the event, but
that didn't prevent a string of
cars from stopping on the shoul-
der of State Road 24 to watch -
any doubt of the plane's identity
erased by the police lights and
helicopters.
A few Gators fans already


at the airport to' pick up friends
and relatives were able to
get a good look at the action, "I
was out here when they came
back from the (Southeastern
Conference) Championship, and
I got to shake hands with some of
the players and (UF coach) Urban
Meyer," said 20-year old Robert
Reeves, a sophomore at Santa Fe.
"I didn't really get to see a lot
of them since they're headed to
the basketball game, but I just


try to come out and support the
team," said Reeves, who was
shocked by the Gators' blow-
out win over the Buckeyes on
Monday. "That was not what I
was expecting, but I was very
happy with the outcome. I didn't
think we would lose, but I didn't
expect a stomping either way."
12-year-old Anna Filatov, a
sixth-grader at Kanapaha Middle
School, also got a look at the
team.


"I just wanted to come out
and see the fans, the team and
my family," said
Filatov, who
was on hand
to pick up her
'family.
The team
S then traveled to
eyer the O'Connell
Meyer
Center, where
a few players appeared with
Coach Meyer and the National


Championship trophy during half-
time of the UF-Arkansas game.
The appearance provoked
cheers from the crowd that could
be heard across the street.
The team will also be honored
on Saturday in the Swamp at 1
p.m. Gates will open at 10:30 that
morning.
"I imagine Saturday's going
to be pretty good," Meyer said.
"Gators fans are nuts. It'll be
pretty good."

said. "Steve Harris is gone. My goodness, we
don't even usually talk about Steve Harris.
Steve Harris is unbelievable. He was the
same guy that was out the door Aug. 5. He
was gone and he was out and now he was the
captain of our team."

GATORS TOP FINAL POLL: As expected, UF
finished&the season ranked No. 1 in the final
Associated Press poll. The Gators received
64 out of a possible 65 first-place votes with
1,624 points, while the Buckeyes took the No.
2 slot with 1,492 points.
LSU, Southern Cal and Boise State round-
ed out the top five. Boise State even picked
up a first-place vote. The undefeated Western
Athletic Conference school upset Oklahoma
in an exhilarating Fiesta Bowl on Jan. 1.

COACH REMINISCES ON GAME: A big reason
why the Gators dominated Ohio State had
to do with the battle of the trenches. The
strength of UF's tackles and speed of its


ends overwhelmed a reeling Buckeyes team.
Tuesday, Meyer discussed this aspect in fur-
ther detail.
"On defense, we felt we could probably
play with anybody in the country on the
edge. But I was concerned about being able
to block their big guys on the inside. They
held up pretty good. (Also, Ohio State's
line) didn't get to our quarterback but once
or twice."

GATORS PUMPED AT HALFTIME: UF players
could already taste their national champion-
.ship 30 minutes before it came
to fruition.
t:o' "At halftime, the normal
routine as you go into the locker
Football room is you settle them down,
hydrate them, trainers go
around and work and coaches
are making adjustments," Meyer said. "But
when I came into the locker room, their hel-
mets were on and they were beating the lockers
up. It was a feeding frenzy, what was going on
in that locker room. What do you attribute that
to? A chance to win a national championship?
Absolutely."

mercials for Cox Communications.
But no matter what Leak does from
here on, every one in Gator Nation
should bow down and worship him
the way they do Steve Spurrier, Emmitt
Smith, Jack Youngblood and Wuerffel.
Those names sound familiar?
They're all on UF's Ring of Honor
at the Swamp, where Leak should be
five or 10 years from now.
Fans whined and moaned all year
about how good backup quarterback
Tim Tebow was. That Leak could
never be as good.
The question now is flipped: Can
Tebow ever live up to Leak?
Leak can't perform well in big
spots, fans said, he's only an average
quarterback.
Try this on for average: Leak led the
Gators to 13 wins this season, the most
in UF history. He won the big games
against rivals.
He won a Southeastern Conference
championship, a national title and he
owns every major school passing re-
cord except for touchdowns.
And on college football's biggest
stage, Leak completed 25 of 36 passes
for 213 yards and a touchdown, in-
cluding completions on each of his
first nine attempts.
Take that Gators fans, especially
those of you who flooded my e-mail
account pleading for Tebow to replace
Leak this year. What are you saying


now?
How about those who booed Leak
inhis home stadium? Ibet you cheered
him on Monday night, smiled and en-
joyed that championship he promised
to deliver.
Leak had every opportunity on
national television to rub it in fans'
and critics' faces. Hell have another
one tonight when he's a guest on
"The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno.
But he didn't here and he won't in Los
Angeles or anywhere else. He's too
good for that.
He will make occasional appear-
ances at the Swamp during games.
Everyone will cheer him then, remem-
bering the time he picked apart Ohio
State for the national title.
"I love Chris Leak," they'll say "'
always loved him."
But that's just not true. For four
years fans treated him like garbage.
They took him for granted and under-
appreciated his talent.
Through it all, Leak never said
a word. He always loved UF foot-
ball, and he wanted to do the right
thing-which Gators fans know noth-
ing about.
To speak ill of the fans is something
he won't ever do, not even years from
now.
"I can say without reservation,"
Coach Urban Meyer said at his cham-
pionship press conference Tuesday, "I
love Chris Leak."
So should every Gators fan. Get
on two knees and kiss his...national
championship ring.
