About 50 GAU and Students

Bret Seferian said they spend
about $400 to $500 each semester
in fees, including lab fees, a fee

Thanks to Student Government,
UF students will be able to pull
all-nighters in Library West before
finals this fall.
At a Student Senate meeting
Tuesday night, Judith Russell, dean
of UF's libraries, said Library West's
closing hours would be extended
until 4 a.m. during the final exam
The extended hours will last
from Dec. 1 to Dec. 14.

"There were some concerns
about finding who to work until 4

Library West will be fully staffed
as usual for students who might
need research assistance.
Keeping Library West open dur-

Stem-cell researchers examine regrowing heart tissue
* UF'S COLLEGE OF MEDICINE HAS
BEGUN ONE OF FOUR STUDIES.
By STEVEN WEINER
UF researchers are hoping stem cells found
in human bones can relieve patients' suffering
from the painful effects of heart disease.
In the next year, research physicians at UF's
College of Medicine want to complete four
studies to determine if stem cells found in hu-
man bone marrow could be able to rejuvenate
damaged heart tissue.
The first study, which began Oct. 3, admit-
ted participants with severe angina, which is
chest pain caused by coronary artery disease,
known as CAD.
More than six million Americans suffer
from angina, according to the National Heart,
Lung, and Blood Institute.
CAD occurs when a portion of an artery
in the heart becomes narrowed or completely
blocked with plaque.
Although doctors are able to dear away the
blockage and plaque with existing methods,
the blocked area in the artery becomes scarred
and weak, said Carl Pepine, chief of cardiovas-
cular medicine at UF's College of Medicine.
Until now, doctors had no way to help revi-
talize these damaged regions.
"The old assumption was that the heart
cells at birth were the only ones you got,"
Preliminary research has shown, however,
that a concentrated injection of stem cells into
these weakened regions of the heart could
result in the regrowth of blood vessels, Pepine
These blood vessels may help bring blood
flowing back into the scarred tissue.
When people hear the
U F term "stem cell," they tend
Research to think of embryonic stem
cells, which are able to devel-
op into any type of cell, including the nervous
system, the heart and the immune system.
However, the adult body also produces
what are known as autologous stem cells, said
Christopher Cogle, doctor and assistant pro-
fessor of hematology and oncology in the UF
College of Medicine. These stem cells are not
nearly as adaptable as embryonic stem cells.
In the last five years, Cogle and other UF
researchers have been at the forefront of dis-
covering how blood stem cells might help heal
In 2002, Edward Scott, a UF molecular
geneticist, led researchers to confirm that the
blood stem cells of mice could be transformed
into blood vessels. Then, in 2004, Cogle's lab
saw that human blood stem cells could trans-
form into brain cells.
The new study will see if blood stem cells,
which are produced in the bone marrow, can
be converted into blood vessels in the heart.
In the procedure, patients are injected with
a protein to stimulate the production of blood
stem cells in their bone marrow. The blood
stem cells are eventually pushed out of the
bone marrow and into the bloodstream.
After five days of bone marrow stimula-
tion, the patient's blood is filtered through a
, Patients receive injections of specific protein into bone
marrow that stimulates production of blood stem cells.
', After five days of injections, blood stem cells are pushed
out of bone marrow and into the blood stream.
, Patients' blood is filtered through a machine that
separates out specific blood stem cells in a process
machine which collects blood stem cells and
then returns the rest of the blood back to the
Within a day of collecting them, the stem
cells are injected into the patient's heart with
the help of sophisticated technology that helps
doctors locate damaged heart tissue.
Pepine said a "best case" prognosis for the
treated patients would be improved mobility,
reduced chest pain and an improved quality
Although Cogle could not comment on the
progress of the study, he said all safety expec-
tations for the patients have been met.
0, A catheter-based electrical mapping system
is used to determine weakened heart tissue
that could still be revitalized.
i0, Stem cells are injected into the selected
regions and patients are monitored with
echocardiogram and MRI throughout the
known as aphoresis.

Dripping fake blood, 'zombies' roam UF's campus
Charles Roop, Alligator StaH
UF sophomore Jasmine Betz and other students decked out as zombies prowl Library West on Wednesday
By KATIE GALLAGHER
Dripping blood and moaning
for brains, nine zombies lurched
through campus Wednesday
Of course, the blood was
made of corn syrup, and the
undead were UF students on a
Halloween zombie walk.
UF junior Chris Cano, who
passed out 100 fliers for the
event, got the idea from friend
Alex Coward, who hosted a zom-
bie walk in Savannah, Ga.
"I shouldn't really be talking
to you because zombies don't re-
ally talk," he said.
The zombies started to gather
on the Plaza of the Americas at
7:30 p.m., wearing ripped cloth-
ing and slathering on blood from
a corn syrup bottle.
"I don't want to get dirty in
blood. Why can't I be a clean
zombie?" asked sophomore
Samantha Acosta, who finally
accepted some corn syrup on her
face and arm.
While they waited, early ar-
rivals started to stagger after
passers-by, who easily outran
them without looking up from
their cell phones.
Graduate students Jason
Perlewitz and Quang Vo were
chased from the sidewalk and
across the grass.
"I shouldn't really be
talking to you because
zombies don't really talk."
"I've never had a group of
zombies attack me before," said
Vo, who said his first instinct was
to hit them in the head.
The walk was intended to go
down University Avenue, but
the zombies decided instead
to attack Library West and the
Marston Science Library.
"Remember, in the library you
have to whisper your moans,"
said UF student Robert Garcia.
Local food bank experiencing severe supply shortage
* THE FOOD BANK HAS LITTLE
By APRIL DUDASH
For the first time in about eight years,
Bread of the Mighty Food Bank does not
have enough food to distribute to all of the
nonprofit organizations that need it.
Director Anne Voyles said the organiza-
tion has cookies, crackers and drinks, but
none of the essentials.
"We just need the food groups," Voyles
HOME Van, which delivers food and toi-
letries to the local homeless, stops by Bread
of the Mighty twice a week to restock.
Arupa Freeman, director of HOME Van,
said when she visited the food bank, she
noticed that its food supply had decreased.
"Children are going hungry and 80- and
70-year-olds are going hungry," Freeman
About this time of year, Voyles said the
group makes about 300 Thanksgiving bas-
kets for families who. normally wouldn't
have a holiday meal.
The box of food would weigh about 25
to 30 pounds and include a turkey, large
chicken or ham.
"So far, when somebody calls me and
asks to be on the list, I just tell them to
pray that we have the food to do it," Voyles
Local The food bank on 325 NW
News 10th Ave. takes whatever help
it can get because it distrib-
utes about 2 million pounds of food in a
year, she said.
The bank is part of America's Second
Harvest, the largest food recovery and res-
cue organization in the United States.
The food bank serves nonprofit organi-
zations in Alachua and four other counties.
"We're like a little grocery store, but
we really have a large warehouse," Voyles
It collects food from individuals as well
as places such as Publix.
Publix pulls food off the shelves, and
Bread of the Mighty buys items from the
store at a small cost.
The food bank then goes through the
food to make sure it is safe for consump-
"All these years, we've never had a
problem with anybody having food that's
not safe to eat," Voyles said.

In a strong voice, the Eastside High

ond book, earning a Ph.D. in psychiatry
and attending UF in fall 2008.
He said he's always wanted to go to
UF. It's the only place he's applying to
In previous years, students like
Home, who were 100 percent sure that
UF was their top-choice school, applied
for the early decision deadline, which
gave them a contractually bound ad-
missions decision in December.
But this year, UF eliminated the
early decision process, so Home ap-
plied for admission along with all other

Ret Thomas, a guidance counselor at
EW. Buchholz High School for 28 years,
said he doesn't think the change will
impact the quality of the 2008 freshman
"I'd be surprised if it really changes
the complexion of their freshman
class," he said.
Sylvia Walker, career counselor at
Eastside High School, said she thinks
other factors such as academic pro-
grams and cost are more influential in
determining who applies to UF
"The interest is always there," she
said, estimating that 50 to 70 percent of
her students apply to UF each year. "I
think we probably have more students

American students applying, because

"Now it's kind of like you're on
edge, and you don't really have a guar-
anteed spot anymore," said Mackenzie
Hellstrom, an Eastside senior. "It's kind
of a bummer."
Hellstrom, an 18-year-old in the
International Baccalaureate program,
said most of her friends feel they lost
their advantage when UF took away
the early decision program.
"I feel like Florida students had an
advantage with early decision, and
now we're on the same playing field as
everyone else," she said.
And that playing field has grown
since UF's three national champion-
ships, she added.
"Everyone wants to be a Gator. I

plying, [and in] Hawaii, Costa Rica,"
she said. "UF is on the map."

could do so much better
So Student Government got Library West to extend its
hours during exam week one of the Gator Party's
platform goals for this year, which party members will
surely pat themselves on the back for and tout as a "tangible
And yes, Starbucks will be open for your caffeination
So what does SG want, a medal?
Library West will be open from 8 a.m. to 4 a.m. from Dec.
1 to Dec. 14 so students can cram for exams, write 15-page
research papers and, of course, check Facebook compul-
sively. It'll cost the library $5,000.
This couldn't have been that hard to accomplish. And
it wasn't even done by Gator senators. No, it took party
bigwigs to get the job done. Student Body President Ryan
Moseley and Student Senate President Kevin Reilly worked
out the deal with the library.
Allow us to clarify: We recognize this is a good thing.
We're happy it happened, regardless of how. We gotta
study, too, you know.
Now the problematic aspect: It's unfortunate that the
same few people seem to get everything done while almost
all the senators sit back and just show up at a meeting once
a week. We don't think that qualifies as "tangible results."
What does this say for the future of SG after those few
people graduate or move on?
Call us jaded and cynical, but we can't say we're hopeful
for the future.
If a handful of senators are working to make these small
changes, imagine what could happen if all the senators
were as dedicated. An SG party might actually gasp!
- accomplish its platform and then some.
Oh, who are we kidding? That'll never happen.
Graduate teaching as-
sistants. They make
up one of the most
underpaid and overworked
groups at the university.
And now, instead of paying
all their fees at the beginning
of the semester, they want
them deducted from their
paychecks over the course
of the semester, or even
worse done away with
The outrage! The blas-
phemy! The ... hey, wait.
That's a pretty good idea.
Faculty and staff can
have the cost of their park-
ing decal deducted from
each paycheck. Anyone with
health or dental insurance
will tell you that comes out
of their paycheck. We don't
pay a year's worth of rent all
at once, and the IRS doesn't
make us pay all of our taxes
in one fell swoop.
So why should graduate
students who are employed
by UF be forced to pay their
fees upfront? The start of the
semester is typically a tough
time financially for just
about everyone waiting
for financial aid while hav-
ing to shell out for books,
school supplies and rent.
We hope UF administra-
tors take these ideas to heart
and consider giving gradu-
ate teaching assistants more
time to pay their fees. It's the
least UF can do for those it
uses and abuses the most.

People hide from life in reality television
In response to "MTV reality show a
disgrace to society," society's problem
isn't promiscuous sex. "A Shot at Love
with Tila Tequila" is cheap, disgusting en-
tertainment there is no disputing that.
But the reason prime-time television is
filled with such garbage is because people
keep tuning in. Society's real disgraces are
the people who tune in to such mindless
drivel while the world is bleeding and cry-
ing out to be heard.
Soldiers are killed in roadside attacks,
civilians are slaughtered in the streets,
genocide is ignored, ice caps are melting,
minorities are kept in perpetual inequal-
ity, health care is a privilege rather than
a right, the leader of the free world lies
and corporate greed continues to exploit
the individual and the world. These facts
Society simply tunes it out and tunes in
to watch which fatty lost the most weight,
the kids who were left alone to rule them-
selves or whether Tila will end up in some
girl-on-girl action. Ignorance is bliss, and
so many are willing to embrace it. But
what happens to those who stand up, who
dare to be heard and whose passion for
change runs deep?
They are told they crossed the line,
that they broke some social rule. You
don't even have to look outside of UF for
an example. Students for a Democratic
Society was torn apart for giving a minute
glimpse into reality. The students appar-
ently "lacked taste."
They weren't applauded for uniting
and crying out against a war that was
started under false pretenses by a coward
hell-bent on being a war president.
Why have the cries of so many been
silenced by the latest and crudest reality
show? Society is heading in the wrong di-
rection, but it's not because of promiscuity.
Rather, it is fueled by ignorance and apa-
thy. People simply can't be bothered.
Maybe I'm being too hard. Maybe peo-
ple tune into reality television to escape a
reality too terrible to face.
Either way, Tila Tequila is sure to stay,
while we allow incompetent fools to have
the remote control to the world around us.
The scariest part of it all? Their favorite
genre is horror.
Meyer was right to ask hard questions
While we may not agree with what
Meyer said during the events of Sept. 17
we should, as Voltaire said, "defend to the
death" his right to say it.
Meyer has since stated that, in retro-
spect, his "issues are not so important
that [he needs] to shove them in anyone's
face." Nothing could be further from the
truth in a society that values the freedom
of expression. Is this the sentiment UF
seeks to instill in its student body regard-
ing the value of individual ideas?
At one point in our nation's history,
wearing black armbands in opposition to
the Vietnam War was deemed too disrup-
tive for the school district of Des Moines,
Iowa. Students were suspended for the
practice until they capitulated to the
In 1969 the U.S. Supreme Court stated
in its landmark decision of Tinker v.
Des Moines School District that neither
students nor teachers "shed their consti-
tutional rights to freedom of speech or
expression at the schoolhouse gate."
While such solemn demonstrations still
hold a place in public discourse, it may be
necessary to shove our issues in the face of
the public in order to effectively address
the ills that plague society. For this, we
should never be made to fear retribution
from those who disagree.
While Meyer may pursue a policy of
appeasement in exchange for a promise
from the State Attorney's Office and the
university for a return to normalcy, UF
students must resolve to never again allow
the state or its educational institutions to
abridge our right to express our concerns
or outrage, no matter what the cost.
Sports classes keep students healthy
This is in reference to the announce-
ment that sport and fitness classes will be
It's sad that we are eliminating one of
the few healthy outlets for students who
constantly deal with stressful situations.
Classes such as yoga, golf, bowling and
weight training are fun classes that allow
students to release some stress and have a
class they actually enjoy going to.
These classes also promote a healthier
lifestyle. In a society that's always on the
go, there's not always time for exercise or
a healthful meal.
When you are enrolled in a class, you
not only have the motivation to work out,
but you actually do it, too.
Numerous studies have shown that an
overwhelming portion of the U.S. popula-
tion is overweight or obese. In fact, federal
health officials have called it society's No.
1 killer, so why are we getting rid of class-
es that help us stay fit?
Gator Growl tickets are fast, easy to get
Yesterday I was worried that I wouldn't
have time to buy a Gator Growl ticket be-
fore the show Friday. Between my work
schedule and classes, I just wasn't sure I
would have time to pick up a ticket while I
was on campus.
After one of my classes, I was walk-
ing through Turlington Plaza, and sure
enough someone in a Gator Growl T-shirt
started talking to me about how easy.it
was to buy a ticket. He assured me I could
buy my ticket and even make it to my
next class on time. Given my past experi-
ences on campus, I was a bit skeptical. I
expressed this concern to him and it was
met with a challenge.
I marched over to 'Gate 13 of the sta-
dium. Having bought a Gator Growl ticket
before, I knew I'd probably have to leave
for class right in the middle of trying to
buy a and before I could even finish
my thought, I was holding a ticket in my
hand and I was already on my way to my
next class. I even walked in the door with
a couple of minutes to spare.
I'm so excited about the performances
this year, especially getting to see Lynyrd
Skynyrd, and I just wanted to thank the
Gator Growl staff for streamlining the pre-
viously hectic ticket process. I also wanted
to specifically thank the Gator Growl
staffer from Turlington Plaza, whose name
I never learned, for literally making my

Colclasure said 900 children at-

Sorority members also handed

to children contained coupons from
companies including Blockbuster
Samantha Dalton, Junior
Panhellenic division director, said
she thought this was the most impor-

But no progress has been made, he said.
Cecilia Amador, vice president of the

requested a special meeting with the UF
administration about two weeks ago and
has not heard a reply.
"This is something we've been pushing
for a while now," she said.

human resources, said there is a consulta-

its hdurs to close at 4 a.m. between Dec. l and Dec. 14 for exams.
If the group does request a meeting, the
administration would certainly be willing to
listen to any issues, he added.
As the protest wore down and the group
headed to a social at Tim & Terry's, Deeb
Kitchen, GAU's other co-president, said he
was pleased with the results of the protest.

Robert Schur, a UF history junior, said he
thinks the library should be open 24 hours
during the final exam period.
"I'm a big crammer," Schur said. "I imag-

to go if you want to cram."
Russell said keeping the library open 24
hours during final exam weeks is a possibil-
ity for future semesters.
The librarians will make the decision
based on student turnout and feedback from
the surveys. For now, some time is needed
for cleaning after the library doses.

dents wouldn't receive adequate rest if the

* For really great sex, think outside the box
Hate to break the news to you, but
better sex is not going to happen just be-
cause it's harder, faster or longer (though
O I'll admit, those don't hurt).
In fact, better sex has nothing to do
with the conventional definition of sex.
* Really great, toes-curled, mind-blow-
ing sex occurs more frequently because
of outercourse than intercourse.
Huh? Let me break it down for you.
Think about the best sexual encoun-
ter you've ever had. Now think about
what made it so incredible. Chances are
your partner's enjoyment, just as much
as your own, was a key factor.
A. University of Chicago survey
found .that only one-third of women
achieve orgasm in an average sex ses-
sion. That means there's a whole lotta
faking and a whole lotta sub-par sex-
in' going down.
A large part of the problem is our
culture's definition of exactly what sex
is (as if Bill Clinton didn't complicate it
enough). Because the biological reason
for sex is procreation, a man's orgasm
is often revered in unfair proportion.
Consequently, sex is viewed in a linear
fashion light foreplay, vaginal inter-
course, man orgasms, the end. But we
can do better than that-boring template
for sex, can't we?
If a woman's orgasm were as cele-
brated, I can guarantee both the frequen-
cy and quality of our sex lives would be
greatly improved imagine a world with
no more "I'm tired" complaints. I know
I'm turned on just thinking about it.
That same University of Chicago
survey also found that given just 21 min-
utes of foreplay, 93 percent of women
reached orgasm. Further, more women
came from that foreplay than from
actual intercourse. Perhaps instead of
viewing these acts as the appetizer to the
main course, we need to view all sexual
acts as items on a tapas menu: delicious
morsels to enjoy throughout the whole
meal, each equally pleasurable.
That means we need a new definition
of sex: Outercourse basically, the sex
stuff that occurs other than penetration
- is just as important as intercourse.
Ian Kerner, author of "She Comes
First," said it all
in the title. Simply,
men should post-
pone their own
orgasm in pursuit
of mutual gratifi-
Now before you start complaining,
dudes, let me say this, and let's hope
it becomes a proverb for generations:
An orgasmic woman is an enthusiastic
woman. Hopefully, you won't need to
ponder the implications very long.
Equal doses of each type of sex are
essential, and good sex is everyone's
responsibility. Outercourse, like inter-
course, should never be one-sided or

As a big fan of the Guitar Hero series
and a proud Nintendo Wii owner, I took the
plunge in buying the new game and guitar
for Wii (Guitar Hero III is also available for
Microsoft's Xbox 360 and Sony's PlayStations
2 and 3), despite already owning previous it-
erations of the game for Playstation 2. The new
game keeps the feel and design of the series
while introducing many new features.
The features are great, but there are some
things about the game that could have been
better and weren't. The biggest letdown for
the Wii version is the graphics. The Wii is no

But a rhythm game is only as fun as its
soundtrack. Luckily, Guitar Hero III boasts
the best soundtrack yet, with the majority of
the set list represented by original versions of
songs (as opposed to covers) and a wide spec-

Roses, Rage Against The Machine, Smashing

Undersized Gators to play more up-tempo

but probably small in the backcourt
with Jai and with Walter, but I think
you've got two fast guys back there
playing," Donovan said. "I have
played that lineup in practice some,
but it's been a good lineup for us. I
The small lineup means the team
w: 1 likely focus on a "run and gun"
s' le of play. Donovan noted that
i the lack of a frontcourt pres-
ce, the team might be forced to
ove at a frenetic pace.
Hodge expressed excitement at
SLOOR, from page 19
the idea of playing up-tempo.
"We're fast and we're smart,"
Hodge said. "I think we're going
to do a lot of damage to the other

we had bigs, Joakim (Noah), Al
(Horford), Corey Brewer," Hodge
said. "It was 6 foot 9 and up. But
now we have guys that play hard
kfter all, you've got two McDonald's All-Americans to
watch, and from what I can tell, past super-sized stars
have worked out well for the Gators.
Corey Brewer, David Lee, Mike Miller, Donnell
Harvey and Brett Nelson were all on the list.
But Nick Calathes and Jai Lucas are still freshmen.
They need time to develop into great players.
At first, it's going to seem like I'm wrong. I have a
feeling the Gators are going to get off to a great start,
but then again so would the Washington Generals (the
Harlem Globetrotters' whipping boys) if they had the
schedule UF does.
Until a Dec. 23 matchup at Ohio State, 10 of UF's first
12 games are in the comfy confines of the O'Connell
Center. One game is in Jacksonville and the other is in
Tampa, which might as well be home games.
and want to win."
Tonight's contest may indicate
very little in the larger picture
because Flagler, a school from the
NAIA, should pose little threat to
UF. Freshman guard Jai Lucas said
the game against the Saints should
serve as a warm-up for the season
"As the'game moves on, I'm sure
there will be something I can pick up
and know I have to do better," Lucas
said, "But that's the good thing
about exhibition games, it's almost
like a scrimmage. But it is serious,
you want to go out there, win and
play your hardest."
Plus, out of those same 12 games, 11 are gimme wins.
Florida State seems to be UF's only real competition.
Sure Al Thornton is gone, but the Seminoles boast
a new 7-foot-1 center and return experienced guards
Toney Douglas and Isaiah Swann.
UF won't be tested until it heads to Columbus, but
even the Buckeyes took a hit with the losses of Greg
Oden, Daequan Cook and Mike Conley Jr.
So while UF is riding high on thrilling victories
over North Dakota State and North Carolina Central
University, don't get too confident Gators fans.
The Southeastern Conference will pose enough of a
challenge this year. Chris Lofton returns to Tennessee,
Patrick Beverley is back for Arkansas and Shan Foster is
in for another year at Vanderbilt.
When this season doesn't quite live up to expecta-
tions, remember the words of late Marquette coach Al
McGuire The best thing about freshmen is that next
year they're sophomores.
Mossor out for several
weeks with broken finger
WHOOPS, from page 19
Junior guard Kim Critton said the team is putting a big em-
phasis on playing well at home this year.
"It's pride," she said. "If it don't start at the house, how
can we go on to the next state and proclaim something to be
MOSSOR OUT: Sophomore guard Jennifer
Mossor seems to have bad luck when it
comes to early-season injuries. After miss-
ing the first two games last season with a
stress fracture, the sophomore will be out
for several weeks after she broke the pinkie
finger on her left (non-shooting) hand dur-
ing practice Sunday. She underwent surgery
Mossor Tuesday to have two pins inserted.
STARTERS NAMED: While Butler said she wouldn't put a lot of
emphasis on who starts, she has finally selected her starting
five for tip-off tonight.
The lineup will feature three guards: Depree Bowden,
Sha Brooks and sophomore transfer Lonnika Thompson.
Thompson will play the point. Marshae Dotson and Sharielle
Smith are the starting forwards.
Butler said she wanted to give point guard Brittaney
Thomas a chance to see the game from the bench for the first
couple of minutes so Thomas can evaluate where there are
openings for her to make plays.

UF MEN'S BASKETBALL
New-look UF to make on-court debut
By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
The championship celebration is over.
After raising its second banner in two years, the
UF men's basketball team will begin a new era to-
night at 8 when it hosts Flagler College in the first of
two exhibition games.
After losing six players from last season's champi-
onship roster, UF will now feature seven freshmen on
a team of 11 and return only one player who played
significant minutes in junior Walter Hodge.
UF coach Billy Donovan has expressed a great
deal of skepticism during the past weeks while hie
tried to make sense of his young squad. Looking
ahead to tonight's game, Donovan said he can only
ask his players to give their all.
"I want to see us, first of all, play with great energy
and passion," he said. "Trying to get them to under-
stand how hard they've got to compete and play,
that'd be the first thing."
"Trying to get them to understand how
hard they've got to compete and play,
that'd be the first thing."
UF men's basketball coach
The proposed lineup for the Gators is set to feature
three guards with Hodge and freshmen Jai Lucas
and Nick Calathes. Sophomores Dan Werner and
Marreese Speights seem likely to round out the front-
court. Donovan said the starting five might change
before tonight's game.
Regardless, tonight marks the first time in UF his-
tory that the Gators enter the season without a return-
ing starter to the lineup.
With the exception of Werner, the three-guard
lineup was used in the scrimmage during the team's
Fan Appreciation Day and has been featured exten-
sively in practice.

Do not expect much from young hoops squad
I hate to break it to you Gators fans,
but this basketball season is going to be
just like football, so brace yourselves now.
Despite the fact that the football team
lists just 20 upperclassmen on its roster,
fans still expected a BCS bowl or even an-
other shot at the national title this year.
Now that basketball season is about
to begin, maybe you're still in the honey-
moon phase of UF's back-to-back hoops
But the minute these Gators step onto
the court tonight for their first exhibition
game, you're going to realize that this sea-

Even UF's returning players save
for maybe Walter Hodge are going to
struggle at first.
Everyone has high expectations for
sophomore Marreese Speights after he
proved he could help out in quick bursts
off the bench last year.
But the Gators' lone big man has only
played basketball since his sophomore
/year of high school, so he's still leam-
/ ing the fundamentals, especially when it
comes to defense.
Now, the season won't be a total bust.

The Gators have had to answer questions
all preseason about their 9-22 record last sea-
son and why this year will be different.
Tonight they get the chance to finally take
the floor and let their play do the talking.
In its only exhibition, the UF women's
basketball team faces Warner Southern at 5:
30 p.m. Warner Southern is an NAIA Division
II program that posted a 10-15 overall record
UF coach Amanda Butler sees two purpos-
es for exhibition games: to provide measuring
sticks for the coaches and
to give the fans a chance to
preview the team.
S "We're excited to com-
Women's pete in a real, live game
Basketball format," Butler said. "To
play 40 minutes, and of-
ficials, and all the formal
set-up, that'll be a great test for us and a great
indication of where we are and what we need
to get done."
The exhibition game gives the coaches.w
a chance to experiment on the court while
providing some film for them to break down
after the game.
"[A game] is the only way you can truly
know if those things are going to work and
what positions are going to be the ones that
we need to put certain individuals in to suc-
ceed," Butler said.
Senior guard Depree Bowden said she
can't wait to play.
"I'm just ready to get back on this court in
the O'Dome," Bowden said.
"[The team is] just ready to get back on the
court and show people what we have."
With the men's team playing an exhibition
against Flagler right after the women's game,
Butler hopes a few more fans than normal
might be in the seats.
"That's a great opportunity to play against
someone in front of maybe a few folks who
have not come out to a women's basket-
ball game before and show them why they
should," she said.
