HERE WE GO AGAIN


UF, OSU meet in rematch


By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
jmarina@alligator.org

ATLANTA UF vs. Ohio
State?
It must be national champion-
ship night.
With that in mind, the UF
football team has flooded the
Gators with phone calls and text
messages since Saturday night,
all bestowing the same advice.
"We're the Gators," forward
Joakim Noah said. "We got to
come back with the ring."
The Gators (34-5) will face the
Buckeyes (35-3) for the second
time this year in a title game
when the No. 1 seeds meet to-
night at 9 in the Georgia Dome.
The Buckeyes refuse to look at
their basketball game as a chance
to redeem their 41-14 title game
loss in football.
"The relevance from the foot-
ball, honestly, means nothing,
has no bearing whatsoever on the
game," Ohio State men's basket-
ball coach Thad Matta said.
What seems to have more
weight, however, is Ohio State's
86-60 loss to the Gators in
Gainesville on Dec. 23.
"It's embarrassing getting
beat by 26," guard Jamar Butler
said. "Some guys may say (it's
.not in the back of their minds),
but it's in the back of mine."
Both teams assured that fans
would be in for a different game
Monday night.


In December, UF junior Al
Horford and Ohio State freshman
Greg Oden weren't 100 percent.
Horford played in, his first
game since suffering an ankle
sprain.
Oden, who sat part of the
game because of foul trouble,
was recovering from torn liga-
ments in his right wrist.
The loss may have been the
best thing for Ohio State players,
who walked away with a new at-
titude and have not looked back
since.
"We're the. Gators. We
got to come back with the
ring."
Joakim Noah
UF forward

"We've grown as a team since
then," point guard Mike Conley
Jr. said. "Our defense wasn't
where it's at right now. I think
we've gotten a lot better and a lot
more confident.
"I think we'll be a lot better off
in this game."
Since the last meeting, Ohio
State has only lost once at
Wisconsin on Jan. 9 and has
won 22 straight games.
The Buckeyes plan to continue
their streak and make the win a
sweet one.
"There's a revenge factor for
us, sure," forward Ivan Harris

UF football player charged for parking lot fistfight


* POLICE FOUND DUSTIN
DOE FIGHTING TWO MEN.

By JESSICA PONN
Alligator Writer

A UF football player set to
be a starter for the 2007 season
was involved in a fistfight early
Sunday morning that ended in


misdemeanor charges, according
to a police report.
Dt,stin Doe, rated as one of the
top linebackers in the country for
the 2006 football class according.
to Scout.com, was charged with
affray, or fighting in a public
place, the report states.
Gainesville Police Department


at 200 NW
Second St.
at about 2:30
a.m. Sunday
to find Doe in
a fistfight with
two other men
- Raymond
L. Smoaks, 19,


ing to the police report.
They were among more than
20 others who were fighting in
the same parking lot, said GPD
spokesman Keith Kameg.
The cause of the fights, he
said, is still unknown.
When police approached the
scene, several of the men at-


officers arrived at a parking lot and Jeffrey J. Brown, 21, accord- tacked a GPD horse, Kameg said,


forcing the officers to use pepper
spray.
Most people fled the scene at
that point, Kameg said.
Doe, Smoaks and Brown are
the only men who were caught.
Doe is a 6-foot, 209-pound
sophomore from Jasper.
He declined to comment on
the incident.

Saturday, he hopes

UF ADMINISTRATION

Early decision admissions ditched by trustees


By JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Staff Writer
jdasilva@alligator.org
The UF Board of Trustees decided to elimi-
nate the university's early decision admissions
program during its meeting Friday morning.
Instead of having three separate deadlines,
the new admissions program will feature a
single mid-November deadline.
The early decision deadline contractually
bound applicants to attend UF if accepted.
In the new program, all applicants will re-
ceive word about acceptance in mid-February.
Alfonso said the single deadline would


eliminate a lot of misconceptions about the
early decision program, such that as appli-
cants had a better chance if they applied early.
He also cited rumors that the requirements
were more stringent for certain deadlines than
for others.
That wasn't necessarily true, he said.
Because fewer applicants were accepted dur-
ing the early deadline, it was more competi-
tive.
Some early decision applicants might have
had a better chance had they applied during
the regular admissions deadline, he said.
For the fall 2006 semester, about half of the
4,462 freshman applicants who applied for


early decision were accepted, according to UF
statistics.
The total number of
freshman applicants that
were accepted was 7,656,
out of 15,935 who applied.
Alfonso said another
benefit of the new program
is that it would allow stu-
dents to take the SAT one
Alfonso more time than the previ-
ous program allowed.
In an interview after the meeting, UF
President Benmie Machen said he only had one
concern about the new program.


He said with only one deadline there
would be a larger swarm of applications than
in previous years.
Though Machen said he thinks the end
result will be fine, he's nervous that the in-
flux will strain UF's Office of Admissions. He
added that he was worried that a strained staff
could result in a delay in sending out accep-
tance letters.
But Machen said he thinks the change will
draw a more diverse student population.
"I think it's going to be good for both the
university and the applicants because it will
help us pick the best freshman class," Machen
said.

SG's funding of pro-Israel ad raises ire of students


* IT RAN IN WEDNESDAY'S
ALLIGATOR.

By ERIN EHRLICH
Alligator Writer

Muslim and pro-Palestine
student groups are upset about
a petition supporting the U.S.-
Israel alliance in the "War on
Terror" that appeared in a Student
Government-funded advertisement
in Wednesday's Alligator.
Yaser Ali, vice president of
the UF student group Islam On


Campus, said it's irresponsible for
a group to use SG funds to push
a partisan message that alienated
many people.
"While it may be legal, it's still
unethical," Ali said.
He said the petition is portrayed
as representing the beliefs of SG and
the UF student body.
On Sunday members of stu-
dent groups Nakba '48, Islam On
Campus and Students for'a Human
Society met to discuss the ad, said
Robert Heck, the Nakba '48 treasur-
er. Representatives of the coalition
plan to express their concern at the


Student Senate meeting Tuesday
"I think they should be honest on
who's funding it," Heck said.
Student Body. Treasurer Ryan

the full-page ad
was paid for by
JewishAwareness
Month, an SG-
funded organiza-
S tion.
Moseley and
osy officials in the SG
Finance Office
approved the ad, he said.
The group was allowed to put


"paid for by Student Government"
in the ad because the wording
doesn't directly influence politi-
cians, he added.
Grant Hubsher, president of the
Jewish Student Union, said the ad
didn't credit the Jewish Student
Union or Jewish Awareness Month
because the people who wrote the
petition and gathered signatures
were not members of either orga-
nization.
Student Sen. Josh Weiss said he
signed the petition before Spring
Break but didn't-realize it was going
to be published in the newspaper.


Weiss said he was uneasy
about the last sentence of the peti-
tion, which pledged support for
"America's alliance with the state of
Israel in the global War on Terror."
UF assistant professor of history
Matthew Jacobs said Israelis and
Palestinians have their own ideas
of what has occurred since the war
between them in 1948.
He said the reaction to the ad
would have been the same if the
petition were pro-Palestinian.
"It's not surprising considering
the very deep-seated conflict," he
said.


HEALTH

After Medicaid changes, birth control prices increase


By BRITTANY DAVIS
Alligator Writer
bdavis@alligator.org

Women who get their birth control at
UF's Student Health Care Center may have
a hard pill to swallow when they see their
nextbill.
An increase in some birth control prices
followed changes in a Medicaid rebate law
that came into effect in January. The changes
to the federal law did away with drug man-
ufactures' incentives to provide discounts to
student health care centers.
Laura Tipton, SHCC's pharmacy manag-


er, anticipated the price increase and stocked
up in December. As a result, the birth control
prices didn't increase until March.
Tipton said the pharmacy fills about
40,000 birth control prescriptions per year.
While the prices for the Ortho Evra-
patch or the Depo-Provera shot stayed the
same, some of the generic pills, which for-
merly cost $15 per month, are now $20. This
change is small compared to the price hike
for the NuvaRing, which went from $15 per
month to $40. The jump has prompted some
to search for cheaper birth control methods.
"The NuvaRing used to be one of our top
three sellers, but due to the recent price in-


"This might be a rallying point for
women who may want to band
together and work for some legisla-
tive change."
Phylis Craig
nurse practitioner at UF's Women's Clinic

crease, it has dropped considerably," Tipton
said.
Even with the price increases, birth con-
trol drugs are inexpensive at the SHCC, com-
pared to local pharmacies. But birth control


is even cheaper at Planned Parenthood of
North Central Florida, a nonprofit organi-
zation. At Planned Parenthood, a number
of name-brand pills remain $15 per month,
and the NuvaRing remains $20.
Phylis Craig, a nurse practitioner at UF's
Women's Clinic, said UF's pharmacy has
kept its customers despite the increase. But
she wouldn't be surprised if some clients
began purchasing their pills at Planned
Parenthood.
Craig said the American College Health
Association is lobbying to reverse the chang-
es to the law.
"All is not lost," she said.

Jeb snub worries trustees


By JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Staff Writer
jdasilva@alligator.org
As UF tries to push a tuition hike through
the Republican state Legislature, the university's
Board of Trustees is hoping the Faculty Senate's
snub of former Gov. Jeb Bush won't have reper-
cussions.
Manny Femandez, the board's chairman, said
at a meeting Friday that he hopes the Senate's de-
cision won't dissuade the Legislature from pass-
ing a bill that would allow UF to implement the
"Academic Enhancement Program." .
If instituted, the program would charge all
incoming UF students an extra $1,000 a year on
top of tuition, starting in the fall. Neither Bright
Futures nor the Florida Prepaid program would
cover the fee.
Femandez said the program is one of the most
critical bills in Tallahassee for UF this year.
"I thought (the Senate's decision) was short-
sighted," said Femandez, who was appointed
chairman by Bush. "It was not in the best interest
of the faculty or students."


During the meeting, Femandez said Bush had
been a steady force behind UF and its faculty. As
governor, Fernandez said Bush fought for fac-
ulty raises and a faculty benefit package. But
Fernandez said the board would not override the
Senate to issue the degree.
In an interview after the
meeting, UF President Bernie
Machen agreed, saying the
St 4p I Senate failed to take Bush's
relationship with UF into con-
text. He called the decision a
"mistake."
He added that though the
UF Alumni Association award-
Bush ed Bush honorary alumnus
status two days after the Senate meeting, nothing
could mitigate the effects of the Senate's actions.
"I don't think you can counteract what the
Senate did," Machen said. "(The decision) stands
on its own."
Fernandez said the best action for the board to
take is to move on.
"It's beyond us right now," he said. "This is
the last time you'll hear.me talk about honorary
degrees and Jeb Bush at the same time."


Office bet pools illegal

Office bet pools illegal


By AMANDA McKENZIE
Alligator Contributing Writer

March Madness has struck, and
many people are betting on their
favorite teams in hopes of making
a little cash. However, wagering on
NCAA games, even in office pools
or among friends, is illegal in most
states, including Florida.
Democratic state Sen. Jeff Plale, of
Wisconsin, wants to make a change.
He is proposing a new bill that will
decriminalize small office pools in
the state of Wisconsin.
"Its truly a victimless crime,"
Plale said in a telephone interview.
"I think it should be a no-brainer."
However, Jamie McCloskey, an
associate athletic director at UF, said
he does not see the NCAA changing
the rules any time soon.
"Gambling just isn't a good prac-
tice to get into," McCloskey said.
Capt. Jeff Holcomb, the
University Police Department
spokesman, said it's illegal to gam-
ble on sporting events in Florida.
"Whoever plays or engages in


cards or a game of chance for money
or other value shall be charged with
a misdemeanor," he said. "A sport-
ing event is a game of chance, which
is a- second-degree misdemeanor
that can be punishable with up to a
year in jail."
"Gambling just isn't a good
practice to get into."
Jamie McCloskey
UF associate athletic director

However, Holcomb said that
it is not a crime that can be easily
monitored..
"We can only deal with those cas-
es if they are reported and brought
to our attention," he said.
Plale said the difficulty of enforc-
ing the law is the reason he thinks it
needs to be amended.
"I think it will remove a silly law
in the books," Plale said. "I think
it will give people some peace of
mind to know that no one will

Bitter pill

Increase in birth control

costs affects UF students
T hank you, Medicaid.
Drug companies used to have incentives to provide
college health care centers with deeply discounted
drugs. But in January, changes were made to the Medicaid
rebate law as part of an effort to reduce the national deficit.
When the changes were proposed, college health officials
said they did not realize the bill would affect students' pre-
scription prices.
As a result, you may have to pay more for prescriptions
- namely, birth control at UF's Student Health Care
Center.
According to the American College Health Association,
almost 40 percent of undergraduate women use oral contra-
ceptives. The SHCC fills about 40,000 prescriptions for birth
control each year.
The prices didn't-go up until now because many college
health care centers, including UF's, stockpiled drug supplies
because they knew the prices were rising and they wanted
to keep costs down for students as long as possible. But cen-
ters can only hold so much inventory for so long.
Many students only'fill prescriptions every few months,
so they haven't noticed the increase until now.
The price of the Pill rose by $5 at the SHCC, which means
women will have to pay $60 more per year. But the biggest
hit goes to women who use the NuvaRing, one of the most
popular forms of birth control sold at SHCC. They saw
prices for their form of birth control rise almost threefold,
from $15 to $40. Some health officials fear that some women
may stop using birth control altogether because of the price
increases.
The SHCC prides itself on offering quality health care at
competitive prices and you can't beat the convenience
factor. Go to class, hop over for a flu shot, and then meet up
with a study group at the library? Sounds pretty good.
So not only do students, many of whom already struggle
financially, have to deal with paying for tuition, books, rent
and beer, but now many of their medication costs will rise
as well.
Many women are seeking birth control elsewhere
- namely, Planned Parenthood, which was not affected by
the changes to the Medicaid laws. Some students have even
been referred there by SHCC. We're glad that SHCC is legiti-
mately trying to help students out by helping us save what
little money we have.
Of course, if women can get the Pill cheaper from Planned
Parenthood, they should. But what about students who can-
not easily get to the off-campus site? SHCC's advantage was
its convenience, coupled with its competitive prices.
But the blame does not fall on SHCC's shoulders. The
government is at fault this time surprise, surprise.
The good news: The American College- Health
Association is lobbying to reverse the changes made to the
law. But those changes aren't guaranteed. And even if they
do make it through the legislative process, they won't take
effect overnight. We need to stand up for reduced-price birth
control for college students by writing to our senators and
representatives.
And hey, Student Government: This is a damn good issue
you could lobby for on our behalf.

Differences between equality, diversity


Were you as stunned as I was last week to learn
of all the employees at UF that have been
white, this whole time, under our very noses?
"My stars!" you probably cried out. "Have I inter-
preted this flowchart correctly?"
To think of all those exposed white professors and
administrators trudging home Monday and Tuesday
- shoulders slumped, spirits low, knowing they would
have to face their families I almost pity them. Almost.
If only they could have changed their races in time, if
only they could have-been some kind of islander then
we'd have had a university you could be proud of.
Instead, we know only disgrace.
I would keep mocking the notion that a person's racial
background makes a difference if I thought you would
laugh at the absurdity of the idea, rather than get angry
because of what you think I'm saying.
Last week's articles represent the latest iteration of the
widespread misunderstanding and misapplication of the
concepts of "racism," "equality" and "diversity."
"Racism" is when you do something solely because of
someone's race. If you try extra hard to recruit someone
who is, let's say, black that is an example of racism.
The most important kind of "equality," in terms of
society, is equal opportunity. If an organization we'll
say UF gives all interested applicants due consider-
ation for a position, that is an example of equal opportu-
nity. Surprisingly, people can figure out for themselves
whether they want to apply somewhere, no matter what
race they are.
"Diversity" means having a wide variety. People
attending a university can have diverse ethnic back-
grounds. However, since different ethnic backgrounds


have no value over each other
white is not better than black,
black is not better than white
VT ethnic diversity is irrelevant
as long as racism is absent and
equality present. See the previous
Patrick Barrett two paragraphs.
letters@alligator.org I wish this university would
stop thinking about the races of
its students and faculty. Some
people will think I'm racist for saying that. Does that
confuse anyone else? How can you worry about race in
order to get rid of racism?
No one lobbies for racial diversity in athletics. Did I
fail to become a great football player because I haven't
"seen enough people who look like me" succeed in foot-
ball? No, I just never picked it up. Will Joakim Noah not
know how" to block the shots of players in "real world"
basketball if he hasn't played against representatives of
their race before? The idea is utterly racist. Race and
performance are not connected. Besides, Noah can block
everyone's shots.
You might think that I just don't want as many minor-
ities at UF. But in reality, I don't want my kids or yours
- to grow up in a world where people waste time think-
ing about race. So let's stop the absurd speculationrabout
why blacks don't want to live in "rural north Florida."
Let's investigate allegations of racial preference and dis-
crimination and fire the offenders. Other than that, let's
ignore all the qualities of our students and faculty that
aren't related to their ability to do their jobs.

Letters to the Editor
Requiring religion courses wastes time
I'm writing in response to Gordon Van
Owen's Friday column. It would be a waste
of resources for UF to require all students to
take religion courses. As with current course
requirements, uninterested students would
swarm toward the easiest course they could
find to fulfill the requirement and forget what
they learned shortly after completing the
course.
Besides, classroom exposure to a chosen
aspect of religion would not necessarily pro-
vide the foundation needed to understand
the varied religious issues of today's world.
Some students would come out with a gen-
eral knowledge of different religious practices,
while some would emerge with a more aca-
demic or philosophical understanding.
A student who learned about the math-
ematics of the Bible could not necessarily have
an intelligent exchange with someone whose
religionclass was about the history behind the
Vedas the sacred texts of Hinduism.
Students interested in learning about reli-
gion could find relevant information on their
own time and in their own way, be it on the
Internet, in Library West or even in already
existing but not required courses.

Sociology more relevant than religion
I read Gordon Van Owen's column Friday
in which he endorsed a general education re-
quirement for a religion course in college. He
cited Time magazine's recent cover story about
Bible classes in our public schools to support
his position. Time's article highlighted a lot of
issues regarding these courses, including con-
cerns about the current publishers who print
textbooks for high school Bible classes.
These textbooks are biased because they


leave out the Bible's ties to many historical
events, including the Inquisition, the Crusades
and slavery.
The historical truth should not be watered
down for our nation's youth if these courses
are to be taught. I argue in favor of a different
approach. If we require a religion course to be
taken, we should require a comparative world
religion course. The intent of these changes
in curriculum is to give students a view into
a world that is not their own where they
are exposed to new cultures, concepts and
people.
If we required college students to take any
kind of religion course, they may just take
courses in the religions they already belong
to, which is unlikely to offer them insights into
other cultures.
Mr. Van Owen's article states that religion
is a prevalent issue these days. If that is the
case,- I recommend we support a general
education requirement for a sociology course
instead of a religion course, starting in high
schools. Discussion regarding religion is less
likely to be highly contentious if we were to all
have some knowledge regarding sociological
concepts such as social stratification and social
mobility.
During religious discussions that so
frequently focus on social issues, our under-
standing of other people's problems seems
to go out the window when we tow the line
of our religious faith. Religion may not teach
us all more compassion and understanding,
but a sociology course might open our eyes to
the troubles and concerns of our friends and
neighbors.

r recycling

and free exchange of ideas for UF students.
But it is also a source of waste. There are no
easy and convenient means for students to
recycle the 35,000 issues circulated every day.
Many students would agree that most of the
trash that lines the sidewalks and gutters
on campus are bits and pieces of the day's
Alligator. -ow much of the garbage hauled
away at the end of the day is newsprint?
I. propose that the Alligator and Student
Government make a concerted effort to set
up a campaign to encourage recycling of each
and every issue by conveniently placing many
more collection bins near the paper vendors,
along the sidewalks and next to every garbage
can on campus and along University Avenue.
I am pleased that the Alligator and UF at
least put forth the crucial message to recycle
what we can. However, the existing effort can
and must be beefed up to encourage readers
to engage in this crucial effort to reduce our
frivolous consumption of earth's sustaining

Alligator shouldn't have run SG-funded ad
I was disappointed and offended by the
ad printed in Wednesday's Alligator featur-
ing the support for Israel by some students
at the university. There is nothing wrong with
student support for whomever, but to portray
it as paid for by SG implies this is where we
all stand or where we should stand. I find
it unacceptable, and frankly, if there were
an ad featuring the Palestinian flag with the
American flag and signatures of support, I
highly doubt it would have even been consid-
ered for print.
This act by SG and the Alligator alienates
many people at UF and sends a signal to


students, whether it was meant to or not, that
this is the "right" place to stand on the issue
of Israel-Palestine because this is where our
country stands. Shouldn't that be up to the in-
dividuals to decide? This act further promotes
Islamophobia, which is obviously not in need
of promotion. This act promotes racism.
I am ashamed of the Alligator for printing
this. I am ashamed of SG for supporting this. I
am ashamed to be a part of this university that
prides itself in its diversity to the public, yet
promotes racist views by printing this offen-
sive material and not reacting to it when many
contacted them to do so.
There needs to be some damage control to
fix the Islamophobia forced on students by this
publication's support of war by "our country"
and "our ally" against "the terrorists," as the-
advertisement presumably labels Palestinians,
Arabs and Muslims.

SG-funded ad misuses student money
I was surprised to find SG using my tu-
ition money to print a petition authored by
the Jewish Student Union in Wednesday's
Alligator, stating that "We, the students of
the University of Florida," support the state
of Israel in their nationalistic and military
endeavors, among other things.
It's exciting to see SG usher in this new era
of ridiculous spending, where (hopefully) stu-
dents will not have to go a day without seeing
fully subsidized political propaganda in our
student newspaper. I anxiously await the full-
page rebuttal to this piece. Maybe SG can even
chip in for color photos, so we can see in vivid
detail the realities of the Israeli-Palestinian
conflict.

Gator fans gather in bars to root for basketball team


* THEIR CHEERS PUNCTU-
ATE THE GAME.

By DREW HARWELL

dharwell@alligator.org

Players dribble, fans drink.
It's an unquestionable dy-
namic for spectators and sports
junkies, especially on a Final
Four game night in a Gainesville
sports bar.
In the land of beer and buffalo
sauce, everybody's your buddy.
Fans in sports bars are united by
the team spirit radiating from a
game played hundreds of miles
away.
This spirit was in full force
Saturday night at JP Gators, a
13th Street bar and pool hall.
Fans knocked back drinks and
watched the UF basketball team
trounce the UCLA team.


At the dimly lit bar, where
wine glasses hung unused be-
neath Budweiser racing collect-
ibles, pitchers were swigged and
wings swallowed.
Most fans congregated with
drinks near the booths and
watched the game on screens out-
side the bar, inside the bar, above
their heads and
on the wall.
Gators fans in
this bar coordi-
Men's nated a universal
Basketball sound code to
document the
game: Missed
shots were "Awww!", scored
shots were "Ahhhh!" and hard
hits were "Ohhh!"
The unspoken code also trans-
lated into body language.
Questionable calls, for in-
stance, were always punctuated
with upturned palms and open
mouths.


Parking will be forbidden on University
Avenue from 13" Street to 22" Street, and
on First Avenue from 16' Street to 18" _
Street.


Lt. Keith Kameg said.
Police will be very tolerant in
their patrolling because they want ,
students to be able to celebrate
and have a good time.
However, officers will not tolerate -
S fighting, fireworks or fires.

During game time, fans
watched the screen closely.
Commercials, on the other hand,
served .as discussion breaks or a
good time to order another round
of drinks.
On the bar, clear shot glasses
that resembled pawns on a chess
board were refilled almost as fast
as they were emptied.
Some patrons, however,
couldn't get their glasses refilled
fast enough.
How do you get that bar girl's
attention, anyway?
As the players gathered mo-

began expressing themselves.

There's no place like home

ORLANDO -My quest to find a drunken mass
of orange and blue outside Gainesville began near.
the University of Central Florida's campus.
As I approached the entrance of Orlando Ale
House, I bumped into a group of UF students who
were in Orlando for a rollerblade race. They said I
could join their party. So I sauntered in.
The scene wasn't orange and blue enough
- only about a quarter of the tables seated a fan
in Gator gear.
But when the game began and the team ran
onto the court across the screens of dozens of TVs
in the bar, chants of "Gator Bait" overpowered the
other chatter in the room.
It's true in Gainesville the chant would have
been louder. But this wasn't Gainesville.
The people at a table behind me and my new
friends responded with a different cheer.
"U-C-L-A, fight, fight, fight."
That got my blood running.
"Is that the only cheer you guys know?"
shouted Sari Seid, 21, a UF applied physiology and
kinesiology junior at my table.
The Bruins didn't respond.
At every three-point shot UF scored, cheers


could be heard throughout the restaurant. Boos
from the UCLA table followed fast.
In a nearby booth, there was a pair of married
couples, each with one infant in a baby carrier be-
side them. One of them, Brent Driscoll, wore a blue
2006 Florida Gators basketball national champions
collared shirt.
One of the women at the table, Amy Kicklighter,
was a UF alumna from the time when Danny
Wuerffel and the Gators football team reigned
supreme.
"It's so much better being at Swamp
with a bunch of Gator fans. You gotta
do what you gotta do."
Byron Valle
UCF graduate

Across the room, Kicklighter's husband, Matt
Rebholtz, could be seen gazing up at the screen
with a cup in one hand afid his 2-month-old
daughter, Shannon, in the other.
Even in Orlando, I was able to share a win with
other Gators. But there is no denying the words of
UCF graduate Byron Valle, 21: "It's so much better
being at Swamp with a bunch of Gator fans. You
gotta do what you gotta do."

named Mr. UF.
For the talent portion of the
contest, Basse imitated UF quar-


terback Tim Tebow, said Ryan

UF sports titles draw prospective honors students


* THE HOPEFUL APPLICANTS VIS-
ITED CAMPUS SATURDAY.

By CHANTALLE CARLES
Alligator Contributing Writer

The Gators' victory in the 2007 national
football and basketball championships did
more than attract the best high school players
for this year's teams. The wins also recruited
some of the nation's top high school scholars.


These students came together early
Saturday morning for the Honors Program's
annual Visitation Day, which provides pro-
spective Gators a chance to visit the campus,
meet with faculty members and talk with cur-
rent honors students.
"We hope to highlight the great things
about UF, and hopefully those are just the
things they want in a school," said Jessica Liu,
a UF freshman and one of the event's coordi-
nators.
While UF's academics and dubs were of
interest to the high school students, for some


the biggest lure was the national champion-
ship trophy.
"UF has an awesome football team, and it's
important for me to go to a school with great
academics and a great
UIF sports program," said
Academics Nikki-Fragosi, a prospec-
tive student from Tampa.
Nathan McMahon, a
high school senior from Jacksonville, must
soon decide between going to UF or to
Dartmouth. He is leaning toward UF and
admits that the allure of being a student in


"Championship City" is hard to pass up.
"Winning the national championship game
definitely made UF more attractive," he said.
Each of the 300 invitees boasted a 4.0 grade
point average and at least a 1430 SAT score
- a fairly big increase compared to past in-
coming honors freshmen classes.
Many students left Visitation Day hoping
to one day call themselves a Gator.
"Visitation Day really made me consider
going here," McMahon said. "It's not just
about being able to come here for free, but
because I really like the school."


CHARITY

UF's Dance Marathon


raises about $362K


By ASHLEY CAIN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Listening to a mix of '80s
music and rap, hundreds of UF
students danced the night away
- and the morning, too.
For 32 hours, 642 dancers
stayed awake and on their feet for
the 13th annual Dance Marathon,
held in the O'Connell Center.
The event raised $362,378.17
for the Children's Miracle
Network at the Shands Children's
Hospital, bringing total dona-
tions for all 13 years to more Than
$2.36 million.
Puzzles, coloring books and
giant plastic balls the gym floor
were just a few of the items that
helped keep dancers entertained
and awake.
But the highlight of the event
for everyone was watching the
Gators victory in the NCAA Final
Four game on huge screens.
"Watching the Gators get
ready to play Ohio State in an-
other championship game was

the best part of the night," said
freshman Taylor Siegel.
While the basketball game
helped dancers keep going, the
event's message was not lost.
Dance Marathon requires that
participants stand for more than
a full day so they can experience
struggles like those the "Miracle
Children" children helped by
the network go through.
"It's exciting because now I
can give back what people
gave to me."
Callie Criser
UF freshman

Callie Criser, a UF freshman,
knows exactly what it feels like
to experience that kind of ordeal.
Criser, 19, is a Miracle Child
herself. This year she finally ful-
filled her lifelong dream of par-
ticipating in Dance Marathon.
When she was 2 years old, she

But she still suffered kidney

Jokes reign on Internet for April Fool's Day fun


* FACEBOOK SAID UF AND
OHIO STATE CALLED A TIE.

By KATIE PACKER
Alligator Contributing Writer

"Bracket Buster: Ohio State and
Florida have mutually agreed on a
tie and will not play the champion-


ship game," the Facebook Web site
reported Sunday.
On April 1, many popular Web
sites played practical jokes on the
readers they serve.
Facebook, the social network-
ing Web site used by many college
students, ran bogus posts through
its News Feed.
A new "LivePoke" service, for


instance, promised to dispatch
a live person to literally poke a
friend of the user's
Student choice.
Life "I thought
somebody hacked
Facebook," said Michael Hacker, a
UF freshman. "It was funny after I
realized it was a joke."
Google introduced two prank


services: Gmail Paper, which
claimed to deliver users' e-mails
in paper form, and Google TiSP,
which promised a free wireless
network that would operate
through sewage lines.
Other popular sites posted
fake content. NASA's Astronomy
Picture of the Day, for instance,
depicted the first Quidditch match


played in space a reference to
the Harry Potter fantasy series.
And fake products, includ-
ing caffeine sticks that could be
inhaled and a helmet attachment
for the Wii, were featured on
ThinkGeek.com.
"I think it's great that Web
sites can have a sense of humor,"
Hacker said. "It made my day."


Turkish night at Reitz


features food, dance


Andrew Stanfill / Alligator
Performers demonstrate the kirklareli, one of several traditional Turkish dances, Sunday at an event
celebrating Turkish culture in the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom. The event featured a Turkish meal, sing-
ers and other performances.


By AMRA ZEJNELI
Alligator Contributing Writer
About 300 people crowded into,
the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom
Sunday night to dance, eat and learn
about Turkish culture.
The crowd at the 29th an-
nual Turkish Cultural Night, orga-
nized by the UF Turkish Student
Association, was filled mostly with
families.
Everyone began the night by
singing the national anthems of
Turkey and the United States. There
were also folk dances performed by
the Turkish Folk Dances Group of
Atlanta, live Turkish music, pictures,
and a video. There was also a din-
ner of traditional Turkish food, such
as garnished eggplant, shepherd's
salad and steamed rice, followed by
baklava.
UF freshman Altan Ozler, the as-
sociation's treasurer, said the event


cost between $3,000 and $4,000, with
$1,000 from Student Government.
The rest of the money was donated
from Turkish faculty members at
UF
"The food is great, the
people are really nice,
and the buildings are just
spectacular. But it's not as
great as Tampa."
David Denslow
UF professor

The guest speaker of the evening
was UF professor David Denslow,
whose wife lived in Turkey. Two
years ago, he and his family took
their first trip to Istanbul together.
"The food is great, the people are
really nice, and the buildings are just
spectacular," he said. "But it's not as
great as Tampa."

UF BASKETBALL

Championship to be aired at O'Connell Center


By CHAD SMITH
Alligator Staff Writer
csmith@alligator.org
UF fans will be there along with
the cheerleading squad and the
Dazzlers, and the hardwood will
be game-ready. The only things
missing will be the basketball team
and the pep band's rendition of Paul
Simon's "You Can Call Me Al."
The O'Connell Center will be
open for the public to watch-the
Gators defend the men's basketball
national title tonight on four big-
screen TVs.
Gates will open at 7:30 p.m., and
tip-off is scheduled for 9:21 p.m.


Entry to the 12,000-seat arena is
free and first-come, first-served, ac-
cording to a press release.
Everyone who attends will get a
free T-shirt, according to the arena's
Web site.
In a rematch of January's football
championship, the Gators will play
the Ohio State University Buckeyes
and will try to become the first re-
peat national champions since Duke
University did it in the early '90s.
About 10,200 fans came to the
O'Connell Center to watch the
football game, and about 6,000 were
there to see last year's basketball
championship game against the
UCLA Bruins.

Gators celebrities, local businesses tee off for charity


* DANNY WUERFFEL WAS
ONE OF THE PARTICIPANTS.

By JASON SILVER
Alligator Contributing Writer

While lined up to sign in at his
golf tournament at the University
Golf Course on Saturday morn-
ing, an anxious and excited


Danny Wuerffel said he was look-
ing forward to raising money for
charities but he still had his com-
petitive streak.
More than 30 celebrities and
former UF athletes, including
Wuerffel, a Heisman Trophy-
winning former UF quarterback,
paired up with representatives of
sponsor companies at the Gators
for Kids tournament.


The entrance fees, donations
arid sponsorships raised about
$80,000 for the Boys & Girls Club
of Alachua County,
On Wuerffel's Desire
Canmpu Street Ministries,
and Newspapers in
Education, said Casey Smith, the
event's director.
"The tournament is an incred-
ibly fun and easy way to help


people," Wuerffel said. "It's also
great to catch up with a lot of
former teammates who I haven't
seen in a while."
Burkhardt Sales and Service
won the golf tournament with a,
score of 51.
Dwayne Dixon, a former
Gators assistant head coach, was
the celebrity on the team.
Bruce Vaughan, another for-


mer Gators football player, said
he thinks Gators players should
feel obligated to come back and
support Gainesville and UF.
"When you sign on to play at
UF, you realize the love Gators
fans have for you," he said. "Not
everything always goes well for
everybody, and when bad things
happen to them, you have to give
back."

King of chess


Andrew Clark, 6, is part of a local team that won a recent tournament


Though much of his world occupied by black
and white kings and queens, Andrew Clark still
has a colorful childhood, full of bright crayons
and romps with his best friend his dog,
Precious.
Andrew, 6, is learning chess at a young age.
He started playing in August and has won more
than half a dozen trophies, medals and awards


for his accomplishments.
Andrew's team of kindergartners and first-
graders at Oak Hall School in
Special Gainesville holds many awards,
including the state chess champions
title in their division.
"I like chess because you get to have tro-
phies," Andrew said.

meeting at Oak Hall School in Gainesville. He practices with his team two
to three times a week after school.
Right: Andrew attempts to move out of a set-up "check" that his chess
club teacher Tim Tusine arranged in order to help teach Andrew strategy.
Below: Andrew Clark raises his yellow crayon in response to a question
from his kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Curbow, on what color represents the
sun in their color-by-number picture.

isn't playing at school
or competing in tour-
naments, he practices
at home with his dad,
Mark, on his great-
grandfather's chess-
board.
Below: Although An-
drew likes the intellec-
tual rigors of chess, he
is still a 6-year-old who
enjoys ice cream before
bed.

Tourney sweet for Humphrey


Senior breaks 3-pointers record


By JENNA MARINA
SAlligator Staff Writer
jmarina@alligator.org


ATLANTA Senior Lee
Humphrey more affection-
ately known to his teammates
as "Humpty" may have just
picked up another nickname:
Cookie Monster.
"I'm sure Lee probably hasn't
gone to bed without milk and
cookies since he's gotten here,"
UF coach Billy Donovan said.
Humphrey can't deny the
moniker.
"Coach has a good sense of
humor, but its kind of true,"
Humphrey said. "I don't drink
milk and cookies every night be-
fore I go to bed. There might be
some nights that I have milk and
cookies."
If anyone would know about
Humphrey's late-night eating
habits, it'd be his road roommate,
freshman Dan Werner.
Werner said that he and
Humphrey stay away from
midnight snacking and instead
stuff their faces during the team
meals.
"When we get our meal, we
get ur money's worth," Werner
said. "I like food, but Lee Hump
likes his food a lot. He'll eat any-
thing. Everyone on the team will
think the meal's bad, but he'll say,


'Aw, I loved it.'"
Perhaps it's this insatiable
hunger that has led Humphrey
to become one of the best 3-point
shooters in college basketball his-
tory.
On Saturday night, Humphrey
sank four from beyond the arc
to break the all-time NCAA
Tournament record for 3-point-
ers.
"I think it's pretty neat
that I had an opportunity
to break that record."
Lee Humphrey
UF shooting guard


The senior's 43 threes in his
14 career postseason games
surpassed former Duke guard
Bobby Hurley's 42, achieved from
1990-93.
"I think that's a cool accom-
plishment," Humphrey said. "I
think it's pretty neat that I had
an opportunity to break that re-
cord."
After his low-shooting per-
formance in both the Purdue
and Butler games last weekend
- he hit two 3-pointers in both
- Humphrey could have missed
out on breaking the record.
But a Donovan pep talk gave
the senior just what he needed to


return to his sharp-shooting self.
"Before the Oregon game
- because I had a couple games
where I didn't shoot the ball as
well Coach came up to me,
he said, 'Lee, have faith that the
guys are going to give you what
you need. Go out there and play
and just play with confidence,'"
Humphrey said.
The result?
Humphrey sank seven threes,
one of which actually ripped
through the net to cause a 10-min-
ute game delay.
Humphrey has enjoyed the
Gators' tournament run, and
the two-time Southeastern
Conference Scholar Athlete of the
Year is not at all worried about
missing class.
"I like to be on the road just
because you don't have to go to
class, and you get to relax," he
said. "I get to catch up on my rest
more than I ever would at school.
Plus, I don't get two massages ev-
ery day when I'm home at school,
either."
The past three weeks have also
been particularly enjoyable to
Humphrey because his favorite
film series has been on television.
When Werner and Humphrey
are in their hotel room, they
have spent their time watching

OSU now the disrespected team


Fouls irk Buckeyes' Oden


By ANTONIO GONZALEZ

ATLANTA Greg Oden sat up in
his chair, surfacing from his uninterested
shell, and spoke with authority Sunday
when asked about the officiating in the
NCAA Tournament.
"It seems to me that they call more
ticky-tack fouls than they did in the regu-
lar season, especially the Big Ten season,"
Oden said in his lone moment of emotion
during Ohio State's media session in the
Georgia Dome. "I have no idea why they

Plagued by foul trouble in this year's
tournament, Oden has been sidelined for
valuable minutes.
The 7-foot freshman sensation played
* .a mere 20 minutes in
the Final Four against
Georgetown.
He committed two
fouls in the game's first
3 minutes, sitting on the bench for the
remainder of the half without scoring a
point.

ATLANTA -
I|hings here are eerily reminiscent to
the days in Arizona leading up to the
Bowl Championship Series National
Championship Game.
Only the roles have flip-flopped.
The Gators are now the favorite, the
Buckeyes now the ones feeling disrespected.
There are throngs of reporters flocking
toward UF, asking about its dominance.
With Ohio State, the questions are geared
toward revenge and overcoming its "his-
toric" opponent.
The Gators are walking with an air of
confidence and swagger, the Buckeyes with
a chip on their shoulders.
No way these Buckeyes stand a chance
against the Gators, right?
Think again.
Remember how things panned out in
Glendale?


U 1994: The UF men's basketball team
loses to Duke 70-65 in the Final Four.
Blue Devils forward Grant Hill sparked an
18-8 second half run to end what was the

UF GYMNASTICS

Gators dethrone Georgia for first SEC title since 1989


By RACHEL ROBINS
Alligator Writer
rrobins@alligator.org

Titletown has another championship.
For the first time since 1989, the UF gym-
nastics team captured the Southeastern
Conference Championship on Saturday.
It wasn't perfect, but it was enough to
knock the crown off Georgia, who held the
title since 2004.
"It's wonderful because once again
- showing what we have been saying all
along as a coaching staff it's a changing
of the guard," UF coach Rhonda Faehn
said. "We feel what we are doing here in
Gainesville is something special."
No. 1 UF (15-0-1, 5-0-1 SEC) followed
the same rotation as a typical home meet
starting on the vault and finishing on the
floor.
The Gators' fate was still up in the air
upon completion of their final routine as
Georgia had the uneven bars to conquer.
With the Gators' breath lodged in their
throat, they finally let out an exhale when
the Bulldogs' bar score was announced.
Georgia's 49.3 was not enough to catch
UF's total of 197.325, and the Bulldogs
ended up in second, 0.15 behind.
"It's amazing," sophomore Corey
Hartung said. "Before the meet, we had
that feeling inside of us that we knew we
could do it. We knew it was our time to win
it. We knew exactly what we had to do, and
we went out there and did it."
By the end of the season, the gymnastics
team hopes to join the ranks of the football
and men's basketball teams.
Before the team left for the champion-
ships in Arkansas, it received a surprise
visit from UF's unofficial motivational
speaker, Urban Meyer.
Faehn showed the group a video from
Meyer filled with clips of past champions,
including Muhammad Ali and others.
"At the end, it said, 'Turn,' and then


Urban Meyer was there behind us,"
Hartung said. "He came and gave us a
little pep talk and said some good things to
us just to get us pumped and excited."
Faehn showed the montage again be-
fore the Gators took the gym Saturday.
"He shared this awesome video," Faehn
said. "Just th, whole weekend it was the
girls talking about Urban and the video.
It was just really special for them, and I
was honored that he took the time out of
his day to be able .to help motivate our
athletes"
It wouldn't be a UF gymnastics meet
unless there were records broken and
awards collected.
"We feel what we are doing
here in Gainesville is something
special."
Rhonda Faehn
UF gymnastics coach

UF's score was the team's highest ever
at an SEC Championship.
Faehn was named the SEC Coach of the
Year for the second straight season, and
the night's top scorer on the floor, Amanda
Castillo, was named SEC Freshman of the
Year.
"That's just awesome because like I said
- I feel like she is one of the catalysts in
the change in our demeanor and attitude
in the team," Faehn said.
Now, the gymnastics team has to play a
brief waiting game.
Today, the NCAA will announce each
team's venue for the NCAA Regional
Championships on April 14.
By winning the SEC Championship, the
team has cemented itself as one of the best
in UF's history, but it still wants more.
"Just now, Amanda said, 'This is just
the appetizer. We're even hungrier now,"
Faehn said.


UF drops series to Rebels


By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Writer

The UF softball team entered this
weekend's series against Mississippi rid-
ing a seven-game win streak.
Unfortunately for the Gators (28-16,6-8
Southeastern Conference), their bats didn't
make it to Oxford until Sunday afternoon.
UF avoided a sweep with Sunday's 8-4
win and regained the offensive firepower
it displayed during its streak.
Saturday was different. In the first
game of the doubleheader, the Rebels (16-
22,7-7 SEC) handed the Gators a 2-1 extra-
innings loss, dropping the Gators' record
to 6-9 in one-run games. UF's offense was
stagnant in the second as it fell 4-2.
"Things didn't go our way," said
pitcher Stacey Stevens, who struck out
four in seven innings. "We needed to get
more runners on in the dutch and drive
them in."
Third baseman Melissa Zick came on
strong after a quiet start to SEC play. The
junior was 6 for 11 on the weekend.
She smacked her first career triple to
right field in the first Sunday, driving in
first baseman Alexandra Gardiner to give


the Gators a 2-0 lead.
"They were throwing me balls that I
could hit hard," she said. "And I got lucky
and they were able to fall."
As has been the case all season, Kim
Waleszonia's production was tied to UF's
success. The sophomore
was 0 for 9 in the first
.- two games and 3 for 5
in Sunday's win.
i Her double to center
Field in the fifth drove
in catcher Kristina
Hilberth and gave UF
Zck a 7-2 lead.
"As she goes, we
go," Coach Tim Walton said. "When she
gets hits, we win, and when she doesn't
get hits, we tend to struggle."
Mississippi attempted a late rally in the
.seventh inning, down 8-3. Catcher Amber
Tramp doubled to left, driving in infielder
Ashley Dowdy and cutting the Gators'
lead to four. The Gators got out of the jam
as a groundout ended the game.
"I started throwing too many pitches
and falling behind in the count," Stevens
said. "Thankfully I had the run support,
and I was able to stay in the game."

Women shut out SEC foes


N NINA SUVAK LED UF IN MEGAN
ALEXANDER'S ABSENCE.

By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Writer

The UF women's tennis team had
already clinched the victory against
Auburn, but that made no difference to
Nina Suvak.
As the senior's time at UF dwindles
to a close, she continues to leave her
mark on this Gators team, which picked
up a pair of shutout wins this weekend
against Alabama, 6-0, and Auburn, 7-0.
Playing in the No. 2 position, the
highest of her career, Suvak lost the first
set 6-1. She led 5-2 in the second but let
Auburn's Alex Haney come back to tie
it at 5-5.
"I was lost," Suvak said. "It was like
I'd never played tennis in my life."
Nevertheless, she got the job done,
winning in a third-set super tiebreaker,
1-6, 7-6 (4), 1-0 (10-7).
"I honestly don't know (how I won),"
Suvak said. "I was just hanging in there,
trying to fight."
The No. 3 Gators (15-1, 6-1 SEC)
swept the doubles point for the sixth
time this season, losing only six games
across three courts. On court one, Diana


Srebrovic and Csilla Borsanyi defeated
the No. 16-ranked duo of.Alex Haney
and Melissa Koning 8-1. Haney and
Koning picked up their sole win after
Srebrovic and Borsanyi built a 7-0 lead.
Borsanyi carried her dominance from
doubles play, winning her No. 4 singles
match 6-0, 6-1 against Whitney Chappell
to give the Gators a 2-0 lead.

ALEXANDER SITS: Freshman Megan
Alexander sat out for a
fourth-straight match
Sunday with lower back
problems. She was origi-
TenniS nally listed on the lineup
in her usual No. 2 slot.
Thorqvist decided to sit her and play
Lolita Frangulyan at No. 6 and shift
everyone up one slot.
Thomqvist hopes to have her back for
next weekend and said if she's ready,
she will play.

MEN LOSE ONE, PPD ANOTHER: The No.
15 UF men's team (9-5, 4-3 SEC) lost to
No. 16 Alabama 5-2 on Friday. Their
match against Auburn on Sunday was
postponed due to rain. The Gators led
2-1 when play was stopped. The match
will most likely be made up April 15 or
16.

UF BASEBALL

Den Dekker shines


in Georgia sweep


By.TIM CASEY
Alligator Writer
ATHENS, Ga. On a weekend
when senior slugger Matt LaPorta
belted four home runs, a freshman
stole-he show.
Center fielder Matt den Dekker
blasted a home run over the left-
field fence with two outs in the 11th
inning to give the Gators a 3-2 win
and a series sweep against Georgia
on Sunday. The shot came an inning
after freshman right fielder Jonathan
Pigott made a diving catch in foul
territory after nearly colliding with
den Dekker.
"It was a big play, it helps you
keep your head in the game and
gives you momentum," den Dekker
said. "Any time you can make a big
defensive play, you can turn the
game around. Every game in the
(Southeastern Conference) is a bat-
tle, especially on Sundays. You've
just got to keep battling."
With the win, UF (18-13, 7-2 SEC)
has won seven straight to and leads
the SEC.
On Sunday, freshman Kyle
Mullaney held the Bulldogs (10-17,
3-6 SEC) scoreless in the final three
innings.
LaPorta was 1 for 3 with three
walks to end his streak of five con-
secutive games with a home run.
"It was a big game," LaPorta
said. "With (Georgia) not pitching
to me, it's great to see the other guys


step up and make things happen."
His second home run in
Saturday's 9-1 win gave him 13 this
season and 67 in his career. That
career mark tied him with former
Mississippi State slugger Rafael
Palmeiro for third place on the SEC
career list.
First-year UF assistant coach
Don Norris played on Georgia's
1990 College World Series team.
Norris made a homecoming in the
series, something he thought might
be awkward.
"It was a lot easier than I
thought it would be. These
games are about getting
better, about gaining expe-
rience."
Don Norris
UF assistant coach

"It was a lot easier than I thought
it would be," Norris said. "These
games are about getting better,
about gaining experience."
The Gators used nine freshmen
in the series, including seven on
Sunday.
"You win the series when
(LaPorta) does what (LaPorta)
does," Norris said. "You pull off the
sweep because other guys step up
and do the little things that help win
a game like we did today."

The sophomore from Mesquite,
Texas, was listed as the fourth run-
ning back on the Gators' depth
chart, but was expected to see some
playing time.
"It's a bad deal because he was
really coming on," UF coach Urban
Meyer said.


Despite the injury, Meyer is opti-
mistic that Williams will make a full
recovery.
"I know (de-
fensive tackle) Ray
McDonald came
Football back from two (torn
ACLs last season),"
he said. "I have great confidence in
our medical staff and in what kind


of worker Mon Williams is."
Williams played in eight games
last season, gaining 101 yards on
13 carries. His most impressive
performance came against Western
Carolina on Nov. 18, when he was
UF's leading rusher with 95 yards
on nine attempts.
Williams will likely seek a medi-
cal redshirt for this season.


"The positive side is we burned
his redshirt last year and we
shouldn't have, in my opinion, so
he's got a redshirt available," Meyer
said. "We love Mon Williams. We'
care about him."
Kestahn Moore is currently the
Gators' starting back, with Brandon
James and Chevon Walker behind
him.

Humphrey are in their hotel


SOhio State may have to use
a ledi mind trick in order to
prevent Humphrey from scor-
ing in the national champion-
ship game tonight.
Forward Corey Brewer said
he wants to see Humphrey
sink eight more 3-pointers to
really solidify his spot in col-


lege basket-
ball history.


As for
Men'S Humphrey,
Basketball the sharp-
shooter is
just tickled
about the possibility of leaving
school a two-time champion
-.even if he hasn't had time to
really realize it yet.
"It's exciting for me, my
senior year getting to play for
a national championship,"
Humphrey said. "It'd be
cool to go out like that, but I
haven't thought about it too
much. You're so caught up in
the process of getting there."


Freshman plans to 'play smart,' avoid early foul trouble

ODEN, from page 24 .l..p. J'


the NCAA Tournament, failed to pull
away against the Hoyas until Oden returned
in the second half and dominated.
But Oden said the officials, not his play,
are to blame for his foul troubles.
His teammates concurred.
"It was the refs, definitely," Ohio State
forward Othello Hunter said. "There's some
I can't believe they call."
Hunter compared Oden to Miami Heat
center Shaquille O'Neal, in that the size of
both makes it tough to officiate.
"Just because he's aggressive, he gets pe-
nalized," Hunter said.

"The officials are doing the best
they can. He just has to adjust."
Al Horford
UF forward


Intimidating opponents with his forceful
play is something Oden does with pride.
Lately, however, it has almost cost his team
elimination.
Oden's defensive presence has changed
games.
Georgetown's Roy Hibbert, for instance,
dictated the flow offensively in Oden's ab-
sence.
Minus a play or two, that was not the case
when paired against Oden.
"He's a beast," Hibbert said after the
game.
The Gators have taken notice of Oden's
fouls.
UF plans to attack him early and often
tonight.
What the Gators don't understand, how-
ever, is Oden's logic about his troubles.
UF forward Al Horford, who also de-
pends on his size and strength to muscle
opponents, viewed Oden's assessment as
an excuse.
"The officials are doing the best they can,"
Horford said. "He just has to adjust."
While Oden tries to attune his play, the
Buckeyes have already done so.
Anchored by freshmen, Ohio State has
developed and achieved success without
Oden.


Tim Casey/ Alligator Staff
Ohio State center Greg Oden shoots over Georgetown center Roy Hibbert in the na-
tional semifinals on Saturday at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.


Buckeyes players have held their own in
the tournament at least so far.
But UF's big-man trio Horford, Joakim
Noah and Chris Richard may be too much
for Ohio State to handle without Oden.
It was in December when the Buckeyes
suffered a 26-point blowout to these same
Gators.
"If he's not in the game," Hunter said, "it
would be a big blow."
In this last game of the NCAA


Tournament, Oden plans to make it his first
without foul trouble.
But he said some of it is out of his hands,
and in the officials' whistles.
Oden did admit he could help his chances
if he plays more carefully.
For the Buckeyes, their championship
hopes may hinge on it.
"I know they're going to come at me,"
Oden said. "Everybody knows they're going
to come at me. I just have to play smart."

ter Greg Oden said. "I mean, we

the best example to date.
"The better team doesn't al-
ways win," UF forward Joakim
Noah said. "So we know we have
to focus."
That's all it boils down to fo-
cus, concentration and passion.
The Gators have done it for five
games, but not with any consis-
tency. Neither have the Buckeyes,
but they, too, have survived and
advanced.
Still, both teams match up fairly
equal the only difference being
the experience of the Gators.
So why are the Gators so heav-
ily favored?
It's ludicrous.
Three important things to
keep in mind before burying the
Buckeyes:
1. The first game was at the
O'Connell Center tonight's af-
fair is on neutral court.
2. Greg Oden had just returned
from surgery to repair a torn liga-
ment in his wrist.
3. Ohio State's freshmen were.
still adjusting to the college game.
Those will be crucial in the re-
match between the schools.
But the most important thing in
this d6jA vu title remix will be who
has the best attitude.
Will UF try and lollygag its
way to a national title repeat?
Will Ohio State come out with
something to prove?
The way these two teams have
acted this weekend makes you
think this would come to fruition.
It did in football.
All Iheard thatweek inArizona
was how slighted the Gators felt.
I'm hearing the same adage here,
only from opposing sides.
Thank God there is only one
day not two months be-
tween games in this one, or that
"disrespected" and "underdog"
cliche might be the death of me.
I've always thought attitude is
everything in sports.
And the Gators just don't seem
to. have that killer instinct after
their beat-down on UCLA.
The Buckeyes, on the other
hand, are itching for a chance at
revenge. Don't get me wrong, I'm,
still picking the Gators.
They're the best team since
the 1991-1992 Duke team
- the last to go back-to-back.
Everything points to another
Gators championship.
Just don't be surprised if anoth-
er disrespected underdog wins.

OSU's Ron Lewis: Gators 'good,' Buckeyes 'great'


By ANTONIO GONZALEZ
SAlligator Staff Writer

ATLANTA Ron Lewis took
it upon himself to provide added
motivation for the Gators.
When asked to describe UF, the
Ohio State guard took a shot at the
Gators, even though his teammates
woi Monly dish out respect for their
team's opponent.
"Great team," guard Jamar
Butler said.
"Excellent team," forward Ivan
Harris said.
Lewis, however, characterized
UF as a "good team," drawing


laughs from the hundred or so re-
porters on hand.
When given a chance to clarify,
Lewis attracted more snickers.
"(We are a great team) because
we got to this point," he said.
"They're just a good team to me.
That's all I can say about it."
About an hour later, UF's starting
five took the same podium.
When told about the comments,
UF players didn't take the smack
talk lightly.
"Oh my God," forward Joakim
Noah said. "He said that? No. What
a bad person."
The remarks inflamed the Gators,
who felt being a win away from


"At least he said we were
good. He could have said
we were bad."

UF forward

back-to-back NCAA Tournament
titles should say enough about their
accomplishments.
UF forward Corey Brewer, while
upset, saw the best in Lewis' words.
"At least he said we were good,"
Brewer said. "He could have said
we were bad."


CRITICAL NOAH: Joakim Noah isn't
shying from his political views dur-
ing Final Four weekend.
Noah chose again to use his no-
toriety and the media attention to
exercise his First Amendment right.
He was critical of President
Bush's foreign policy Sunday, and
Noah said he would use his fame to
get his views across.
Like he did in a visit to the White
House last April with the champi-
onship team, Noah questioned the
president's mindset.
"It was weird because I didn't re-
ally agree with his views and what
he stands for," Noah said Sunday
about the visit. "At the same time,


I love this country and what it has
to offer. And I'm not going to let one
person change that. I wish people
would do more traveling and be
more critical of their own cultures."
UF coach Billy Donovan said
two weekends ago that he often
discusses with Noah their opposing
views.
Each is passionate about his be-
liefs, and they are willing to have
civilized debates, he said.
"The one thing I always respect
about him and his opinions is he
doesn't necessarily think his opin-
ions are right," Donovan said in
New Orleans. "It's just something
he feels."


Title games create multi-


sport rivalry for schools


HOOPS, from page 1


said. "We want payback."
The two schools are nearly 880
miles apart, but the program's re-
cent history is starting to become
grounds for a new rivalry.
"Our rivalry is Michigan,"
Harris said. "But I guess Florida
beating us like that might cre-
ate competition between the
schools."
When last ranked in the final
two weeks of the regular season,
Ohio State was the No. 1 team in
the nation.
Unlike the football game, the
Gato~ s are the favorites to win
Monday night.
"We are the No. 1 team in the
country, but they're the defend-
ing national champions," Butler
said. "We have to be underdogs.
It's right for us to be the under-
dogs."
UF could be the first team to
repeat since the 1991-92 Duke
teams, and the Gators have been
reminded constantly about their
opportunity to make history.
"I wish I had a nickel for every


time somebody asked me that,"
forward Corey Brewer said. "I'd
have a lot of money."
Horford quipped that
throughout the season, they've
been asked 86,344 times about
the possibility.
But the players refuse to let
their minds dwell on anything
but the game.
"I feel like right now we real-
ized that it's not
'about history,"
Noah said.
"We have to do
Men's what we do and
that's just play
Basketball basketball for
40 minutes.
"And then hopefully we're
back here and we can talk about
that."
The Buckeyes are the final
hurdle to the Gators achieving
their goal, and Ohio State plans
to do everything in its power to
stop a repeat.
"We don't want a team to go
back-to-back, and especially not
on us," Buckeyes guard Ron
Lewis said. "So we're going to
try to the best of our ability to
stop that."
