Gators bask in glory at Swamp festivities
By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
Ten years ago, Notre Dame wide receivers coach Urban
Meyer strolled into the Swamp and walked to midfield,
where he made a cell phone call to his family.
"I told them, 'This is where we have to (be),'" said
Meyer during Saturday's national championship celebra-
tion. "I saw the prettiest girls I'd ever seen none better
than my wife, of course."
Meyer still has the parking ticket he received that day.
Maybe now, UF will decide to absolve him of it:
Saturday, Meyer and the national champion Gators
capped a historic 13-1 season with a festive celebration at
their home stadium. The hour-long festivities saw about

However, Kameg said the suspect is a

Yoga enthusiasts should 'exercise' care to avoid injury
Students perform sun salutations at a yoga class at the South-
west Recreation Center.
* WARMING UP CAN HELP
PREVENT BACK PAIN.
By AMANDA McKENZIE
Alligator Contributing Writer
Practicing yoga can enhance
strength, balance and flexibility as
well as reduce stress, and it may even
help lower high blood pressure, ac-
cording to numerous studies.
But in order to reap these benefits,
students must exercise properly. If
they don't, they may join a growing
number of injured exercisers.
According to the U.S. Consumer
Product Safety Commission, there
were more than 5,000 yoga-related
injuries in 2005 a significant in-
crease from the 2004 total of 3,700.
The cost of treating the injuries in
2005 was nearly $90 million, or ap-
proximately $18,000 for each person.
"Most of the injuries that occur
during yoga are due to overstretch
and joint strain," said- Genn6
McDonald, a physical therapist in the
College of Public Health and Health
"Once the muscle is already elon-
gated as far as it is going to lengthen
and (people) continue to push into
the position, they can cause damage
to the ligaments and structures that
support the joints," she said.
However, there are many reasons
why people put more strain than nec-
essary on their muscles and joints.
"Sometimes when we get into a
class, we get competitive," McDonald
said. "We compare ourselves to
someone else in the class and tend
to push ourselves beyond what we
Injuries can also occur when
teachers adjust students' poses, said
Priel Schmalbach, a yoga instructor
at the Student Recreation and Fitness
"Alot of teachers are getting really
quick certifications, and it's not like
how it used to be," he said. "They
need more training."
Schmalbach said there are some
certifications that require eight hours
for two days.
S"You have to go in and real-
ize your own limitations, and
do it slowly and to try not to
compete with people in your
class because everyone is
at a different level. Competi-
tion is what leads to people
He said that basic poses are taught
in very safe ways, but the problem
for students begins when the teacher
starts to get creative and teaches
poses that are too advanced.
To help prevent injuries in yoga
or any sport, Schmalbach and
McDonald agree that exercisers must
properly stretch and warm up their
bodies before exercise.
"If you go into a class and are
not warm and have therefore not in-
creased blood flow to your muscles,
then yoga can become too taxing on
some areas, such as the lower back,"
Some poses where weight is put
on the cervical spine; like the plow
pose, or where the back is bent from
an upright position, like the camel
pose, could throw exercisers' backs
out of alignment, Schmalbach said.
However, it is important to re-
member that some pain can make
you stronger, he added: "When
you're feeling sore the next day it's
because of the lactic acid, but it's also
because you've stretched the fibers
to the point that they've torn to help
your muscles strengthen."
McDonald said that the best thing
to do with an injury is to rest and put
ice on it.
"But if you have any neurological
symptoms, like burning, tingling,
numbness or changes in bowel hab-
its, you always want to seek medical
attention right away," she said.
There is not an average healing
time for any injury. Rather, it depends
on what part of the body has been in-
jured, McDonald said.
"There are so many things you
can do to the back in the muscle a
herniated disk, a nerve or a ligament
- that healing time for all of those
different structures varies," she said.
Starting out slow arid focusing
on the poses that will strengthen
muscles is key, Schmalbach said.
McDonald advised budding yogis
to practice patience.
"I think any activity, including
yoga, is a progression," she said.
"You have to go in and realize your
own limitations, and do it slowly and
to try not to compete with people in
your class, because everyone is at a
different level. Competition is what
leads to people getting hurt."

The sprinkler system in UF's
Bartram Hall activated Friday
night, soaking equipment and
leaving offices and laboratories
dosed until they dry out.
Frank Davis, Bartram's building
manager, said Saturday that the
sprinklers went off at the top of the
building, but water made it all the
way to the basement.
About 35 percent of. the build-
ing was affected by water damage.
Davis said he didn't know why the
sprinklers came on.
On Saturday, signs were posted
on the doors, which were also
blocked off by yellow caution tape,
to deter students and faculty from
entering the building.
Davis didpot know the cost of
the damage to the building, located
near the intersection of Museum
Road and Newell Drive. An es-
timate will be available after the
affected areas can be assessed and
damaged equipment dries out.
The sixth floor, the most se-
verely affected, had three inches of
standing water, he said.
However, the building will be
open for lectures today, he said.
"We want to try to return the
building to as cose to normal as
possible by (today)," he said.
Marta Wayne, an associate pro-
fessor of zoology, said the water
damaged her laboratory.
"The important thing was that
nothing irreplaceable for me was
lost," Wayne said. "I'm not sure if
that's true for other people."
Water got into Wayne's incuba-
tors, which she said were the most
important items damaged in her
lab. It could take up to a week for
all her supplies to dry out and for
her to fully inspect the damage to
the lab, she said.
"We want to try to return
the building to as close
to normal as possible by
Bartram Hall building manager
Wayne praised the actions of
several people who acted quickly
to save vital laboratory materials.
They worked hard to save
animals housed in the building and
moved freezers containing DNA
and RNA, she said.
"Without that, everyone would
have been in serious trouble," she
Poet promotes unity, action
By BRITTANY DAVIS
Overcome your differences and unite to fight
for social equality, said controversial poet and
artist Amiri Baraka to a primarily black audience
"No single organization can do it not a
Christian organization; not a Muslim organiza-
tion," he said to approximately 120 people. "You
have to pull together a united front and create
unity without uniformity."
The Black Graduate Student Organization in-
vited Baraka to UF as part of the celebrations for
Martin Luther King Jr. Day
Baraka has published dozens of political po-
ems, essays, plays and books since the 1950s, and
he has founded a handful of black organizations.
He.captivated his audience with a poem called
"Somebody Blew up America," in which he sug-
gests that black Americans have suffered from
domestic terrorism since being taken into slavery.
The poem, which cost Baraka his position of
poet laureate in New Jersey, also alleges that Israel
knew about the Sept. 11 attacks before they hap-
The crowd rose to their feet and cheered after
the poem was read.
Though critics have called Baraka's work anti-
white and anti-Semitic, Black Graduate Student
Organization president Angelique Nixon said
people tend to disregard how his art has inspired
blacks to pursue civil rights.
Instead of getting caught up in the controversy,
people should appreciate his contribution to the
civil rights movement, Nixon said.
Baraka told audience members to take ad-
vantage of their education because black people
haven't always had the right to attend college.
"People have struggled for you. People have
died for you," he said. "If you turn your back on
that legacy, you deserve to be cursed."
Nixon said Baraka's unique perspectives were
in line with many of her own thoughts, such her
view of art as a channel for political discussion.
"Those who are in power are always going to
incite controversy," she added.
Although Baraka still creates art and poetry
today he is most well known for his work in the
late 1950s when the Black Arts Movement was at
. Baraka said that at the time he and fellow artists
aimed to create revolutionary work.
"There is no such thing as apolitical art or apo-
litical poetry," he said. "Art is a
S-- way of looking at the world."
He added that art allows
people to see into the mind of
,. its creator more than any other
form of communication.
"It is a reflection of whom
$ you love, and who you hate,"
Bhe said. "You can see what you
Baraa think is ugly and what you
think is beautiful."
Black Student Union President Billy Holcombe
said he liked Baraka's enthusiasm about the power
of art and poetry.
He laughed, saying that he writes some poetry
of his own but would never share it.
Holcombe also noted art's exceptional ability to
inspire people over long periods of time.
"Leonardo da Vinci has been dead hundreds of
years, and look at the people who are still obsessed
with the 'Mona Lisa,'" he said;
Baraka, an opponent of the war in Iraq, criti-
cized Condoleezza Rice and Colin Powell for being
part of the Bush administration and not represent-
ing the interests of Americans.
He also criticized those who achieve positions
of power within the corporate world but don't give
back to their communities.
"We don't need you to go to these big corpora-
tions and go crazy," he said. "We need you to help

MLK lives on
But what about other
great American leaders?
There is no doubt in our minds that Martin Luther King
Jr: was one of the most important and influential of all
Americans in our nation's short history.
He was an amazing man who was able to stand up to ter-
rible adversity and injustice. He led millions df Americans
in peaceful acts of civil disobedience and resistance while
promoting the equality of all men and women, regardless of
the color of their skin it didn't matter if they were white,
black, green or purple. Every person deserved to be treated
with kindness, respect and, above all, humanity.
Listening to his speeches at the Washington Monument
from years ago or seeing the services held in Washington,
D.C., and around the country just yesterday reminds us
what we owe to this great man.
This year also holds special prominence because it is
the first' Martin Luther King Jr. Day without King's wife,
Coretta Scott King, who died last January. A civil rights ac-
tivist in her own right, she fought for years in her husband's
It is important to take a day each year to remember and
honor the man who touched so many people's lives and
of course, he should be remembered year-round as well.
While we're grateful for a .day off to participate in a pa-
rade or attend a memorial service, we can't help but won-
der why we won't.get Presidents Day off as well.
Presidents Day, held on the third Monday in February,
is considered more a day for great sales at furniture stores
and car dealerships. But post offices are closed, and it's a
recognized holiday at the federal level so why not at the
You have to admit, there have been some pretty impor-
tant presidents in this country, and they too deserve a day
when all Americans can honor them just as we honor King.
First, there is George Washington, whose greatest feat
was leading his troops to victory over the British army and,
you know, being our first president. No small task indeed.
Next was Abraham Lincoln his claims to fame are
steering this country through the long, bitter Civil War and,
of course, the Emancipation Proclamation, abolishing slav-
ery throughout the land. Ulysses S. Grant, the commanding
general of the Union Army and the 18th president, contin-
ued Lincoln's legacy in promoting the rights of blacks and
led the efforts of reconstruction.
Theodore Roosevelt also deserves to be lauded as the
first American to win the Nobel Peace Prize in 1906 for his
efforts in negotiating peace between Japan and Russia. He
is often ranked as one of the top 10 American presidents.
The other Roosevelt, Franklin, deserves his fair share too.
He led this country through two of the most important and
trying events in American history: the Great Depression
and World War II.
John F. Kennedy is also remembered and loved. It is
because of him that King's civil rights movement gained
so much traction in Washington. We also attribute to him
the Space Race, one of the bright spots in the darkness of
the Cold War along with the infamous quote "Ich bin ein
Berliner," which we all know means "I am a jelly dough-
But in all seriousness, we don't want to detract from the
greatness of King or his legacy. We just think Presidents Day
shouldn't be written off as just a day of shopping these
great men deserve to be honored too.

SG won't change u
T here's nothing more permeating in campus po-

don't believe I need to be further convinced of our stu-

The question many students should be asking,

aware of some of the things SG does.
Of course, it's possibly because they're far too busy
to pay attention-- SG is largely composed of self-serv-
ing, hypocritical egotists who spend most of their time
appointing themselves to resume-building sinecures,
talking to reporters about how much they love the
student body and networking their way to higher and
higher positions. It's actually not unlike real-world

Speaking Out of what goes on in SG.
Except, of course, themselves. A
great deal of SG's time is tied up in
constantly modifying its own rules and procedures, and
spending outrageous sums of money on its own admin-
istration. A number of SG officials even receive salaries
for their service.
The money for this is yours. Each full-time student
pays around $250 per year to fund SG. That could've
been a flight to last week's BCS National Championship
game. Or textbooks for one semester. Or a reasonably
sized television. Any of these would undoubtedly pro-
vide more utility to a student than SG currently does.
Don't misunderstand my point SG isn't terminally
worthless. But it has the potential to be either far more
beneficial to students or far less imposing on their wal-
lets. Many involved students have offered suggestions
for reform, but those ideas have been largely ignored or
ostracized. A string of political parties have based their
entire platform or campaign on revitalizing SG, but al-
most all have lost miserably.
Those in power actively maintain the status quo
because, well, they're in power, and students largely
accept the status quo for precisely that reason.
The election to select a new SG executive and a new
slate of senators is in a few short months, and that cam-
paign will assuredly be starting soon. Hopefully, the
candidates can offer some sort of inspiring, productive
vision for SG. But even if they did, it wouldn't matter

Foie gras ban is
ave good news. You can still get liver in Chicago.
t's still illegal but not if you know the right
people. It's been five months since the ordinance
passed that egregious flouting of human rights
that strives to prevent the average citizen from taking
a big bite out of a really tasty goose liver. Or duck.
Foie gras is the time-honored French tradition of
duck and goose liver, in which the birds are force-
fed to plump up their livers before being killed.
Appetizing, right? But the dish is still big. It's liver,
liver, liver for Chicagoans. It's all they think about.
Or maybe just the City Council. After careful
deliberation, the law was passed out of deferment
to some "fowl"-mouthed animal rights activists,
who have less business meddling in city politics than
the Ugly Duckling has in a beauty contest. The law
agrees to drop a swift $250 to $500 fine upon any
restaurant caught with the illicit liver for sale.
The ban on foie gras is just as absurd as
Prohibition. Both laws conflict with the wants of the
people in numerous ways. Mayor Richard Daley has
called it the "silliest" ordinance ever passed. Since
the government of Chicago passed a law protect-
ing ducks and geese, they might as well start ban-
ning veal, pork, beef, mutton and a variety of other
children's book characters. That's the reality of it, and
in the congested, poor and crime-stricken neighbor-
hoods of Chicago, the politicians could be doing bet-
ter things to represent their constituents.
However, optimists like me will always see the
Kevin Norton positive in all of this. I see the
Oeuin NOr t change coming across all of
Speaking Out America, and yes, my friends,
it's starting in Chicago.
Americans are not going to take this sitting down.
The tremors of civil unrest have already begun.
One restaurant has begun defiantly serving foie
gras as a complimentary item to an overpriced salad.
There is allegedly one restaurant still serving the foie
gras to customers who ask for the "special lobster."
No lie it's Prohibition all over again, folks.
Pretty soon there are going to be speakeasies in
Chicago full of techno-jazz rhythnis and liver-laden
feeding frenzies of debauchery. Underground or-
ganizations will be set up. Al Capone, Eliot Ness,
bootleg liver. People will be hoarding the stuff until
finally the politicians get the message loud and clear:
"We are the people of this great nation and we want
our foie gras!"
It's all too often the law is accepted as truth. In
this time of unyielding acceptance of the law, it is
good that examples like the Chicago ban on foie
gras come along to remind us of our proud demo-
cratic background and of the flaws inherent in it.
If a law exists that is wrong, all peaceful measures
must be taken to throw it out. If we cannot think for
ourselves, then someday soon morality is going to be
mistaken for legality and vice versa.
I hope I never "liver" to see it.

Scooter law makes no sense
I recently purchased a 50cc

So why was I left scratching
my head? Tell me, what is so

Vet hospital to expand
SIT WILL ADD SPACE TO
TREAT ANIMALS WITH CANCER.
By JESSICA DaSILVA
UF will begin construction next
year on an extension to the College of
Veterinary Medicine's Small Animal
Hospital that will boast a 4,500-
square-foot facility for the treatment of
animals with cancer.
Gene Brandner, the project man-
ager with UF's Facilities Planning &
Construction office, said the cancer-
treatment facility is what will make
the expansion unique.
It will house a linear accelerator,
a machine used for radiation treat-
ment for cancer and other illnesses,
Construction of a separate unit for
the linear accelerator is being consid-
ered for the project, he added.
The extension, which is part of the
UF Campus Master Plan for 2005-
2015, is expected to comprise three
floors and 98,000 square feet, accord-
ing to the office's Web site.
Brandner said he wasn't able to
estimate the cost of the extension
because neither an architect nor an
y .: -
engineer had yet been hired.
After construction, the hospital
will contain "all the components of a
veterinary hospital." This will include
"surgery suites," patient wards and
waiting rooms, he said:
The facility will be used for the
treatment of small animals, as well as
large ones like horses, he added.
The extension will be built over

The hospital's "ability to effectively
serve the public and protect Florida's
animal industry is significantly ham-
pered by the lack of proper facilities,"
according to the Web site..
Though an architect and engineer
haven't been picked, design for the
project will begin this summer if the

After the design stage, the architect

the cost of construction, he said.

Photo exhibit captures Syrian life
Alligator Contributing Writer
The Reitz Union gallery held an
opening reception Friday night for a
photographer who traveled around
Syria by motorcycle.
"Syria: A photographic journey
through the capital of Islamic culture
and beyond" by Mujahid Abdulrahim,
an engineering graduate student at UF,
features photos of the architecture, peo-
ple and landscapes of his homeland.
The reception attracted Muslims
and non-Muslims alike, along with
photographers, reporters and journal-
ism students, all curious to know what
Abdulrahim had to say about his coun-
try through his photographs.
"I didn't want to propagandize my
country," Abdulrahim said. "It's just
what I saw to share as opposed to trying
to convince people of what to think."
Abdulrahim was traveling to Syria
last summer for a visit, and he made a
last-minute decision-to bring his digital
S"I'm phenomenally obsessed with
my camera, so I was scared about taking
it," he said. "I didn't know what kinds of
customs laws they had."
Abdulrahim traveled by motorcycle
and rental car for six weeks in the north-
west part of Syria, through cities and
down winding roads, taking pictures of
whatever he encountered.
Of the 4,600 pictures -Abdulrahim
took, only a handful of his favorite shots
are on display.
Although Abdulrahim is not trying
to portray Syria in any particular way,
the exhibition, which is on display until
Jan. 19, provides a different view of his
country than the war-tom images of the
Middle East that bombard the media.

UF oncologist helps students recognize virtue in treating patients
In dealing with everyday life-and-
death issues, Dr. James Lynch often finds
strength in a higher power. The University
of Florida oncologist strives to teach his
medical students how to care for patients
who know just how hard it is to survive a
"It's like someone presses your face
against a window we refuse to acknowledge
exists. We pretend we are going to live
forever," Lynch said. "I get to see the value
of life on a daily basis."
Lynch said he worries that many medi-
cal students compartmentalize their lives,
separating the human side from the intel-
lectual side. He works on bonding the two
by teaching the importance of compassion
in caring for patients.
His students have flourished under his
methods. One of the newest members of

I figure out the boundaries of their knowl-
edge. That way, I can push those boundar-
ies and help them grow," Lynch said.
And in an atmosphere that deals with
individual mortality on a daily basis, Lynch
is not shy in letting his students and patients
know how his faith in God determines how
he lives his life and gives care as a physician.
"It is my intentional agenda to create
'space' for these issues to be discussed with-
out being critical or unkind to those who
take a different view than I," he said. "In
fact, most students, whatever their personal
world view, have been vocally appreciative,
since they know these things are important
to most patients."
Dr. Katherine Walsh, one of Lynch's for-
mer students, has been inspired by Lynch's
teaching methods. "He is very passionate
about developing empathy and interper-
sonal skills," she said.
Lynch said he's gained strength from his
"I've identified what virtue is," he said.

knocked down. Grace is the power that
keeps us from staying down."

No. 1 Gators defeat Beavers, freshmen show promise
* REED CAPTURED THE ALL-
AROUND, VAULT AND BAL-
ANCE BEAM TITLES.
By RACHEL ROBINS
Melanie Sinclair is still caged.
Despite winning the uneven
bars in UF's 196.85-193.8 vic-
tory against No. 21 Oregon State
Friday night, UF coach Rhonda
Faehn said the redshirt freshman
has yet to be unleashed.
"Even though (Sinclair) just
showed a little bit (Friday) with
two events, I think everyone
could see what a star she is and
what she is capable of and the
energy she carries," Faehn said.
"Her routines right now are still
a little bit easier for her; she is
capable of so much more. But,
like I said, it's more important for
us to keep her healthy and to in-
troduce small things at a time so
that she can gain success."
Sinclair made her Gainesville
debut against the Beavers in front
of a crowd of 4,011. Last season,
she was sidelined with a torn
On Friday, Sinclair scored a
9.925 on the bars for the win.
She has waited a long time
to be formally introduced to UF
"I love bringing excitement
into the air and laughing,"
Sinclair said. "I loved (competing
at home). I wish I'd done all four
events, but I'm saving myself. It
was really exciting."
With Sinclair still not 100
percent, most of No. 1 UF's (6-0)

around title of the young season

Hartune won six floor titles and

pressed with UF's freshmen.

freshmen) is a lot of energy,"
Reed said. "They are very excit-

Faehn's smile was beaming
all night, despite some mis-
takes from her gymnasts. Senior
Samantha Lutz missed a landing
on her floor performance. She
finished in last with a 9.2.
"Since it was at home in front
of everyone, they performed just
a little bit tentatively," Faehn said.

UF remains winless in SEC

The UF women's basketball team has
lost every conference game in every way
possible thus far.
Against No. 4 Tennessee and No.

Conference) dug itself into insurmount-
able first-half deficits, including a
25-0 hole to start the game against the
Then, on Sunday against No. 14
Vanderbilt, the Gators actually managed a
33-28 first-half lead, but still got stomped
in the second half, being outscored by 18'
and ending up losing 82-69.
This schizophrenic play has been one
of several downfalls for UF this season.
No matter what the Gators do, they can't
play well for a complete game.
"I can't even figure it out," junior
guard Depree Bowden said. "Sometimes
we play not to lose, and we don't play to
win. We see the scoreboard and get in our
mind that we can't win. I just don't know
what else is going on, to be honest."
BOWDEN EARNS PRAISE: If there's been
one bright spot to this season, it's been
the improved play of Bowden. Against
Vanderbilt, Bowden scored a career-high
28 points and also gobbled up a team-
high 13 rebounds.
"Depree has taken ownership of her
position and her role," UF coach Carolyn
Peck said. "She'll play a post offensively
and then defensively guard the best pe-
rimeter player. We're not just looking for
her defense but for her offense. The big-
gest thing that's developed in Depree is
DYE-ING FOR A SHOT: There's little doubt
that Kim Dye is the senior leader on this
infant Gators team, but there is also little
doubt that Dye has
struggled in SEC play.
In the three confer-
ence games, Dye is a
combined 3 for 15 with
mmmore turnovers (11)
than points (9).
Still, Peck remains
O W positive about Dye'
"The thing that Kim's not doing is
forcing shots," Peck said. "She's getting
more and more comfortable in under-
standing that when the shot is there, she's
got to take it."
NO WALK-ONS: Despite having just nine
players, the Gators are not looking for
"Right now we're just developing the
players that we have," Peck said. "That's
where we're spending the majority of our

Williams qualifies for NCAAs
By DAVID CHAUNCEY
The UF men's and women's track and
field teams picked up six individual wins
Saturday at the Florida Intercollegiate, host-
ed by the Gators at the O'Connell Center.
Sophomore Shawneise Williams became
the first woman to qualify for the NCAA
Indoor Championships in the weight
throw, leading a team that also picked up
"The goal is to be ready for the
Southeastern Conference and possibly
the NCAAs," UF women's track and field
coach Tom Jones said.
On the men's side, Wes Stockbarger's
third-best shot put in UF history led a con-
tingent of four Gators who picked up wins.
But his throw of 62 feet, 5.25 inches only
earned an NCAA provisional mark.
For one UF athlete, a ticket to the NCAA
Championships is already booked.
Williams, an Archer native, set a person-
al best with a throw of 69 feet, 5.25 inches,
finishing second to former UF thrower Erin
Gilreath, the American record.holder and a
former NCAA champion.
"Shawneise did-a wonderful job today,
we are really proud of her," Jones said.
Williams' monster throw earned her the
seventh-best mark in UF indoor history. She
out-performed her old personal best by
nearly nine feet on her first throw of finals,
and this was all on her first day.
"Shawneise's training has indicated that
she could throw in the range that she did
today, so it's nice for her to throw for an
NCAA automatic mark in her first indoor
meet of the season," UF associate head
coach Steve .Lemke said. "Now, instead
of worrying about a qualifying mark, we
can focus in on getting her ready for the
Southeastern Conference meet and then the
Williams would not be the only UF

"We expect to be one of the better teams

country this year, and the key to our success
is believing that we belong with the nation's
elite," UF men's track and field coach Mike
Holloway said. "The University, of Florida
expects nothing but the best."

the Gators will put up basketball-like numbers
with Meyer's own speedy recruits. But what
makes Meyer's Gators any different than the
standard national championship team?
Meyer is just 42. The core of his team is
a soon-to-be electric sophomore class that
should make UF the No. 1 team throughout
the 2008 season.
For starters, Meyer has been reeling in so
much green, he'd be foolish to leave (which
will segue into my next point, shortly). For
defeating Ohio State, he received around
$375,000 in post-season bonuses.
UF, meanwhile, cashed in $2.2 million from
the Southeastern Conference for appearing in
the national championship along with a $1.1
million purse that every SEC school received
from the BCS.
Combine this with a wealthy Bull Gator
foundation and a fired-up, expansive alumni
base and UF could probably afford to dress
their players in 24-karat gold uniforms and
platinum-based cleats next season.
Meyer is a workaholic who probably
considers text-messaging recruits a leisure
activity. He will not rest easy until the Gators
return to the apex all over again. Sorry Florida
Marlins, Meyer just doesn't agree with your
method of operation.
"In 1988, Notre Dame made a mistake,"
Meyer said. "They won a championship and
were patting each other on the back telling
each other how good they were. We're going
to go like we've never gone. We're going to
work much harder than last year."
Combine Meyer's incessant ambition with
his love for the university, his financial ties
and the herds of commits pledging to play
here, and he likely will be a Gainesville main-
stay for a decade or two.

Gators defense heads for NFL Draft
QUARTET OF DEFENDERS FORGO
SENIOR YEAR TO ENTER DRAFT.
By DAN TREAT and NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writers
Just days after winning the national
championship, the NFL sliced up the
Gators' defense in a way that Ohio State
With the defense already losing five start-
ers to graduation, four more Gators defected
for the NFL Draft late last week.
Linebacker Brandon Siler, safety Reggie
Nelson, defensive end Jarvis Moss and
corerback Ryan Smith will bypass their
remaining eligibility and throw their hats
into the NFL Draft ring.
In better news for the Gators, however,
wide receiver Andre Caldwell and defen-
sive end Derrick Harvey will remain in
Gainesville for the 2007 season.
S UF coach Urban Meyer indicated that
S he wasn't surprised by any of the decisions
made by the players.
"Every decision has been well thought
out and thoroughly researched and dis-
cussed over and over again," Meyer said
While reports about Nelson, Moss and
Smith, who indicated before the national
title game that he could be as high as a fifth-
round pick, started to surface Friday, Siler
didn't make up his mind until Saturday
When reached by phone, he seemed set
on his decision.
"Yeah, I'm coming out," Siler said.
But ne was still on the fence after
"It's a hard decision, that's why it's tak-
ing so long," Siler said. "It's still hard, it ain't
got no easier. I'm considering a lot of things:
my family, I'm considering my degree."
A number of UF players confirmed their
decisions to enter the draft following the
Gators' national championship celebration
at the Swamp on Saturday afternoon.
"I'm leaving," said Moss, while declining
to elaborate further.
Added Nelson: "Yeah, I'm leaving."
Nelson, a first-team All-American with
six interceptions last season, should be the
first UF player chosen in the draft, possibly
in the first round.
Moss, who tallied 7.5 sacks in his junior
year, could also sneak into the first round.
Smith will likely be taken much
later, though he paced the Southeastern
Conference with eight interceptions.
With all the departures, the Gators will
