ON CAMPUS


Gonzales to speak



at Phillips Center


By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

Alberto Gonzales, the former U.S.
attorney general who resigned in
August, will speak at UF on Nov. 19.
Student Government records state
Gonzales was paid $40,000 for his
speech at UF, which is the first col-
lege appearance since he resigned,
said Steven Blank, Accent chairman.
Accent, SG's speakers bureau, is spon-
soring the appearance.
The speech will take place 7:15
p.m. at the Phillips Center for the
Performing Arts, stated a press release
from Accent.
The event has been in the works for
a few weeks, Blank said.
Free tickets will be available for
students with Gator 1 cards on Nov.
14 and for the general public Nov. 15 at
the Phillips Center and the University


Box Office, the release stated.
Blank said he expects a full house.
In 2005, Accent brought another for-
mer state attorney to UF Janet Reno.
The show was so successful that the
bureau jumped at the chance to host
Gonzales, Blank said.
Gonzales was
appointed the first
Hispanic attorney
general in February
2005 and later played
a role in President
Gonzales Bush's fight in the
war on terror after
Sept. 11.
Gonzales resigned in August after a
controversial tenure.
Gonzales faced scrutiny over his
leadership of the Department of Justice
in 2006, after he dismissed nine U.S.
attorneys.

New Gators plates hit shelves


By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Alligator Writer
dculclasure@alligator.org
Avid Gators fans can add a new decorative plate to
their collection of automotive accessories while helping
UF raise money to cope with budget losses.
Dan Williams, UF's director of marketing, said new
plates went on sale at local Gators shops and the UF
Bookstore on Friday.
The plate, which features .
a Gators logo and the word
"CHAMPS,"resembleslicense
plates from the Department of
Motor Vehicles.
The price for a plate at
the UF Bookstore is $19.95, The Gator Natlon
according to the bookstore's
Web site.
Williams said proceeds
from the sale would go back into the UF branding
campaign's budget.
UF's Marketing Communications Web site states that
the branding campaign aims to recruit students, staff,
faculty and recognition by hurling itself into the pub-
lic eye with advertising techniques such as The Gator
Nation and Florida Tomorrow campaigns.
"Because of our budget challenges, we've been look-
ing for ways to compensate," Williams said.


He said he hopes to have the plates available soon
at Gators shops around Florida as well as at Wal-Mart
stores in Gainesville, Jacksonville and several other
Florida cities. They will also be available for Gators
alumni dubs around the state to sell for fundraisers.
Williams said his.office had been working on the idea
for about eight months.
UF also worked with the DMV to make .sure the
plates were similar to those from the department, he said.
The design changed several

ment approved the de-
l ir Isign, Prison Rehabilitative
Industries and Diversified
Enterprises Inc., which works
with prison inmates in Florida,
manufactured the plates.
Williams said the final plate, which is intended for
the front of vehicles, complements Gators plates with
"National Champs" or "Gator Nation" written on them
that are already available for the rear of vehicles.
"It has a very official feel to it," Williams said. "The
word 'champs' is something that really represents past,
present and future championships, and people can keep
it on their vehicles for a long time."


Students give hair
By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Contributing Writer
Despite a chilly morning, 30 people came to trim their
tresses Wednesday to give 150 inches to SFCC's first hair-dona-
tion drive.
Lucy Paltoo, the event organizer, said 10 people donated a
total of 150 inches of hair to Locks of Love, a nonprofit orga-
nization that provides hairpieces to children
Santa Fe suffering from long-term medical hair loss.
Community Paltoo said another 20 people that didn't
COl8O have the minimum 10 inches of hair to do-
nate took part in the event by paying for their
haircuts.
Haircuts and trims were offered for a $5 donation.
SFCC communications specialist Julie Garrett said people
were being turned away because there wasn't enough time to
cut the hair of everyone who wanted to donate.
She said it was slow in the morning because of the cold, but
as the day progressed, more people showed up.
"It was really cold, and some people had to get their hair
spritzed with water in order to cut it," Garrett said.
Paltoo, graduate assistant of the Office of Community
Service at SFCC, said two hairstylists from Avant-Garde Salon
provided the haircuts.

UF group talks to children about fighting bacteria


* THE PRE-PHARMACY
SOCIETY VISITS SCHOOLS.

By KAYLA GRIFFIN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Since his junior year of high
school, UF sophomore Tyler Gums
has been planning a way to combat
the growing problem of antibiotic
resistance.
Now, as president of the Pre-
Pharmacy Society and after months
of planning, Gums finally has the
manpower and resources to put his
plan into action.
However, his plan doesn't in-
volve expensive, high-tech equip-
ment. It doesn't even require a lab.
What it does need is a classroom
full of eager fourth and fifth grad-
ers.
On Oct. 29, Gums, along with
members of the Pre-Pharmacy
Society, began visiting schools in
Alachua County as part of an educa-
tional program called Antibiotics &
You geared toward children.
While an exact date is not set,
more presentations are planned for
the future.
"These kids are smart," Gums
said. "They know there is an issue,
and they're going to be able to look
out for it. We just want them to
know what's going on."
The goals of the presentations


are to teach elementary and middle-
school students the differences
between a viral and bacterial infec-
tion, explain antibiotic resistance
and inform them of how to protect.
against infection.
"That's where the most antibiotic
resistance is in children," Gums
said. "We want to let them know
that we want to try and protect the
future, if that is at all possible."
The packets the dub will use
for the presentations come from
the Michigan Antibiotic Resistance
Reduction Coalition, a nonprofit
coalition comprised of professional
and community organizations con-
cerned with the misuse and overuse
of antibiotics.
To make the information more
fun for the kids, the club has pre-
pared songs, skits, games and
hands-on activities to complement
the packets and slides that are
shown on a projector.
A pamphlet handed out to the
kids has a word search, a rhym-
ing song and a character called the
Resistance Ranger.
One activity involves popping a
balloon filled with glow-in-the-dark
liquid to demonstrate the germ-
spreading power of a sneeze, Gums
said.
"Anything that makes the prin-
ciple behind the project obvious to
the kids, the more hands-on, the
more you can get the kids doing and


interacting, the more they are going
to learn about that experience," said
Marilyn Waylen, a fifth-grade teach-
er at Brentwood Elementary School
who hosted the first presentation.
Waylen, who once taught Gums
when he was in elementary school,
said it is rewarding to see one of her
students giving back to the commu-
nity and thinks Gums will inspire
her students.
"It's a
Around wonderful op-
.j .,' portunity we
have with the
University of Florida," Waylen said.
" The kids are just wowed by all [of
it]. The idea that there are real-life
things you can do with science and
become something inside a field is
hugely important to them."
While the club wants the kids to
have fun during the presentations,
the increase in antibiotic resistance
is a serious problem in the medical
community, Gums said.
Because bacteria are constantly
evolving, pharmaceuticals have to
develop new antibiotics to combat
illnesses that were once easy to treat,
such as a staph infection, Gums
said.
Bacteria that survive antibiotics
go on to reproduce more resistant
bacteria, he said.
The problem is that the pharma-
ceuticals are not keeping up with the
advancing bacteria.


Since bacteria can evolve, the an-
tibiotics that fight them have a shelf
life, Gums said.
Educating children and parents
about the differences between viral
and bacterial infections can help
curb antibiotic resistance by helping
to eliminate patient peer-pressure,
Gums said.
Patient peer-pressure occurs
when patients go to the doctor ex-
pecting medication, he said.
"They want to go in there and get
a drug and come out because they
think that is what will fix them,"
Gums said.
However, according to the infor-
mational packet, if a patient has a
viral infection, an antibiotic will not


help them because antibiotics can
treat only bacterial infections.
But because the patient has taken
time out of his or her day to visit the
doctor and is paying for the visit,
the doctor is pressured to give the
patient medication without testing
to see whether he or she has a bacte-
rial infection.
Gums said he would eventually
like to see the program spread to
other colleges in Florida. When the
club has visited all the middle and
elementary schools, he said the soci-
ety may begin visiting high schools
as well.
"I want to impact the community
and members as positively as I can,"
Gums said.


4 Food-producinp animals that are given antibiotics eventually
make human sicknesses harder to treat.
) If antibiotic continues to proliferate, bacterial diseases that were
once treatable may become untreatable again.
About 70 percent of bacteria that cause infections in hospitals are
resistant to at least one of the drugs most commonly used to treat
infections.

Some research has shown that antibiotics are given to patients
more often than guidelines set by federal and other health care
organizations recommend. All facts from the FDA

GREEK LIFE

Sorority leads 'green' efforts


NINA MAHMOUDI
Alligator Contributing Writer

The UF chapter of Delta
Delta Delta Sorority, known as
Tri-Delta, is leading an effort
to help the Greek community
of Gainesville become more
environmentally friendly.
The sorority is encouraging
all Greek chapters at UF to join
its new "Greeks Going Green"
campaign and will host a meet-
ing Nov. 18 to speak about the
effort with delegates from each
UF Greek organization. -
Greeks will be challenged
each year to make one lifestyle
change and to live in the most
environmentally efficient man-
ner, said Kylie Savino, the Tri-
Delta member who founded
the campaign.
For the chapters that have
houses, changes such as imple-
menting a new recycling plan,
switching to recycled paper
products instead of Styrofoam
or using compact fluorescent
lightbulbs in their houses
can make a huge difference,
Savino said.
Chapters that don't have

a house can still participate
by having members pledge to
make lifestyle changes, such
as bringing their own grocery
bags when they go shopping,
Savino said.
Every chapter will be asked
to participate in fundraising
for the campaign.
"Sustainability is such a
hot trend right now. We
want to be able to jump
on the bandwagon and
take the opportunity
to be influential in our
efforts."
Kylie Savino
"Greeks Going Green" founder

T-shirt sales, sponsored by
local businesses, for all chap-
ters and canvas-bag sales for
the sororities will supplement
start-up costs of the endeavor.
Savino said she hopes to
gain the support of Gainesville
in funding the campaign.
Some local businesses are
already on board.
Mike Amish, owner of


Indigo, a store that specializes
in environmentally friendly
products, will help at the
.meeting.
He said he will educate fra-
ternity and sorority members
on some ways to go green.
Some products the store
carries can also help, he said.
"Half the battle is being a
conscious consumer," Amish
said.
Savino emphasized the im-
pact the Greek community can
make with this campaign.
"Sustainability is such a hot
trend right now. We want to be
able to jump on the bandwag-
on and take the opportunity to
be influential in our efforts,"
she said.
Savino said she hopes other
Tri-Delta chapters around the
nation will adopt the cam-
paign if it proves successful.
Other chapter members
share her hope for the effort's
potential impact at UF.
"If enough people take it
seriously, it could definitely
make a big impact," said
Becky Koppel, a freshman in
Alpha Epsilon Phi Sorority.

Hazing Horrors.

Accusations are no

joking matter
Y our daily fun fact: In Florida, hazing is a'third-degree
felony if it results in serious injury or death. The "an-
tihazing law" was passed in 2005, after lawmakers
pushed for legislation following the death of a University of
Miami student in 2001.
Why are we raising this point? Because the UF chapter
of Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity was suspended after you
guessed it hazing accusations.
A letter from Chris Loschiavo, director of Student Judicial
Affairs, said the fraternity is suspended until further no-
tice while allegations of hazing are investigated. ATO has
been accused of forcing new members to clean rooms in the
fraternity's house and serve as designated drivers at all times,
including the middle of the night. ATO has also been accused
of depriving new members of sleep.
Sleep deprivation, as college students know, has many
adverse effects, including increased anxiety, delayed reaction
time and sometimes even death. It is also considered a form of
torture, according to the American Psychological Association.
These hazing allegations go against not only Florida law,
but also the UF Student Conduct Code and the Office of
Sorority and Fraternity Affairs' antihazing contract. Part of the
contract is lifted straight from the Florida law, which specifi-
cally addresses sleep deprivation. "House clean-ups" are also
a violation of the contract.
This is not just a UF issue. This is not just a moral issue. This
is a legal issue.
Hazing is never acceptable, especially from people in orga-
nizations who try to portray themselves as leaders on campus
and in the community. We're not so gullible as to believe ATO
is the only group that might be hazing its members, but it is
the group under investigation. If the allegations are true, any
members found guilty of participating should be punished
not only by UF but also by the state. The only way to deter
future hazing is to make the punishment harsh enough.
Hazing should never be taken lightly. It should be com-
pletely unacceptable to the Greek community not just
on the surface in antihazing contracts, but in the halls of the
houses, too.


Accent Accolades


First Sen. John Kerry
came. Then it was
Gandhi's grandson.
Then Dr. Jack Kevorkian
was promised to us. Now
we're getting former U.S.
Attorney General Alberto
Gonzales.
We've gotta ask, Accent,
when will it stop?
Hopefully it won't.
We must say, this year's
lineup of Accent speakers is
much more interesting than
in recent semesters. The
most interesting speakers
during the 2005-06 school
year were "Rent" actor


Anthony Rapp and the fiber-
conservative Ann Coulter.
We don't do this very
often, but we're going to go
out on a limb and compli-
ment Accent on a job well
done this year so far.
Gonzales' Nov. 19 speech
will be his first college ap-
pearance since he resigned
Aug. 27.
Accent chairman Steven
Blank and his staff have
done a good job this semes-
ter. Let's hope they keep it
up in the spring. The bar is
set, but we know Accent can
raise it even higher.

Facebook ads are newest annoyance


months ago, I took a vow of abstinence, and I failed.
That is, I failed to abstain from my constant use of
Facebook.

I told myself I would break my addiction to the all-con-
suming Internet socializing site. I thought we'd all be better
off communicating with two Dixie cups connected by string.
And I've noticed the slow decay of our valued and tradi-
tional socializing habits things we've spent thousands of
years cultivating. But the situation can only worsen, thanks
to Facebook founders' decision to inject our conversations
with advertisements.
By the way, this column is brought to you by Verizon.
Without Verizon, I wouldn't have cell phone service, and I
would have to use those Dixie cups. Verizon: Can you hear
me now? Good.
It's also brought to you by Dixie cups. Without Dixie cups,
my comment in paragraphs two and five would not be pos-
sible. Dixie: Make it a Dixie day.
Just kidding. I don't have enough Facebook friends to be
sponsored at this point.
Facebook unveiled its new plan to have companies ad-
vertise through users' buying habits, hobbies and interests,
according to a Wednesday article from The Associated Press.
Apparently, Facebook will give members some control over
whether to share information with companies, but enough
users must say yes for the program to work.
So we're still plagued by addiction. Now it's just an ad-
diction possibly sponsored by our most-purchased products'
companies. A market analyst in the article called Facebook
"everybody's darling." I think he meant "darkling."
If users feel exposed now, wait until corporate America
gets its hands on their profiles. Facebook would be exploiting
its members, possibly scaring off friends with differing views
about the products members are "advertising." Plus, since
when does socializing equal selling?
But let's face facts. This Web site, with a net worth of


about $15 billion, is nowhere
near extinction. Facebook has
become a necessary evil, like
cell phones or politicians.
I'll be the first to admit
Facebook allows me to stay
Stephanie Rosenberg in contact with various people
letters@alligator.org who I probably would never
talk to regularly.
For instance, I recently re-
connected with a high-school friend through Facebook, and
as a result I learned about an internship opportunity. But first
I Facebook-stalked her and found out everything she's been
up to since we lost touch. I didn't even really have to chat
with her.
Facebook is also a self-esteem booster. Whenever I've had
a Debbie Downer kind of a day, I just stare at my Facebook
picture and say, "Damn, I look good."
Who am I kidding? Facebook is not necessary it's just
evil. But for some reason, I can't stop using it. I'm sure most
people share this almost inexplicable Facebook obsession.
But hopefully, I'll wake up and smell the strategically
placed advertisements throughout my conversations with
friends on Facebook.
Hopefully, I'll be enraged when I see Travelocity posted
my profile picture to advertise its service.
Hopefully, I'll end my obsession with Facebook when I
realize it's gone too far. Hopefully, I'll see that Facebook's
greedy move will trivialize any sincerity left in the Web site.
But maybe it won't end there. Maybe I won't even stop
visiting the site after I see Facebook has essentially pimped
out all its members to its sponsoring companies.
But exposing a nefarious corporate plot makes me hun-
gry. I think I'll head to Publix, where shopping is a pleasure.

Letters to the .d.'-
UF students went to D.C. summit, too
In response to Tuesday's article "Students
travel to capital," SFCC students were not the
only Gainesville students to attend Power
Shift 2007. About eight Gators were there this
past weekend representing UF at the largest
global-warming summit ever.
As the article indicated, students lobbied
politicians to create 5 million new "green"
jobs, cut carbon emissions by 80 percent by
the year 2050, and to stop the construction of
all new power plants. UF students met with
the staff of Sen. Bill Nelson, attended various
workshops and panels, and rallied on Capitol
Hill.
The conference reiterated and strengthened
my belief that action needs to be taken now to
protect the environment and secure our fu-
ture. As leaders in Florida, I hope UF students
not only realize the severity of this issue but
also realize their unique ability as students to
make a difference.

Bill Nye speech needed larger venue
The current Accent staff has not been able
to reach the bar set by previous Accent staffs.
While it has brought notable and interesting
speakers, it has not provided accommodating


environments for UF students.
The last two major events Accent has pro-
duced have been mired in controversy and
unhappiness within the student body and the
general public of Gainesville. The latest event
put on by Accent, the Bill Nye "The Science
Guy" speech, showed the Accent staff's
incompetence. A simple poll of the student
body would have indicated a large interest
toward this event, and Accent could have eas-
ily learned that a larger venue was required.
These two events have cast a dark cloud over
the reputation of Accent and UF.
Hopefully, Accent will learn from its mis-
takes and put on a successful event all stu-
dents can enjoy in the future.
Adrian Hayes Santos

Students should get to enter speech first
I attended Nye's speech Tuesday night,
and while I thought his program was won-
derful, the venue left something to be desired
namely, the choice to open the Phillips
Center to the general public rather than to stu-
dents only. The massive crowd of parents and
young children who showed up prevented
many students from seeing Nye in person
and required throngs of students to watch the
speech outside on a projector.
If student money is spent to bring Nye to
campus, shouldn'tstudents be the first ones


admitted to see him? I don't mind if the gener-
al public shows up to see him, but they should
be the ones waiting outside, not the students
whose money funded the event.
Chris Tingley
2EG

Nye speech overflow setup inadequate
I am sorry to say my first experience at-
tending an Accent event may be my last. After
rushing to the Phillips Center from class, I
was told (after only 10 minutes of admitting
students) no more tickets were available. Fine.
I was too late. No big deal.
I then made my way back outside to a pro-
jection screen where we were told we could
watch Nye's speech. Even though we were
crammed into-a small space, and a large por-
tion of the crowd had to stand, I still hoped I
would have a good experience. However, after
Nye started speaking, it became obvious that
Accent was unprepared for a crowd this size.
The sound outside wasn't up and running
for nearly the first five minutes of the event -
something that should have been addressed in
the 45 minutes we were waiting for the speech
to start. Also, the picture quality was terrible.
Nye was a tiny figure in the center of the
screen. The whole bottom of the picture was of
people in the audience.
If I couldn't be in the theater listening to the
speech, the least Accent could have done was


provide the best possible experience for those
of -us who were dedicated enough to sit on the
grass outside.
Oh well, at least no one was Tasered.

Sport and fitness classes shouldn't be cut
I am writing to voice my opinion about cut-
ting back the sports and fitness classes. As a
student who has enjoyed taking several sports
and fitness classes, I am dismayed that UF no
longer finds them necessary.
Aside from the obvious benefits of making
time to exercise and actually having to follow
through with that commitment, these classes
allow students to unwind and enjoy their elec-
tive credits. Where else will we be able to con-
veniently learn unique skills such as archery,
fencing or bowling, not to mention traditional
sports such as golf, tennis and swimming?
Yes, students can go to the gym, swimming
pool, tennis court or golf course, but where
can they go to learn the rules and regulations
of the sport?
These classes are not a waste of time. They
are popular with the student body. Why take
that away from us?

Homeless people converge on plaza for 'night out'


* WARM DINNERS AND
CLOTHING WERE GIVEN OUT.

By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

Bikes and backpacks scattered
Downtown Community Plaza as
people gathered around benches,
eating meals of chicken and
green beans.
Meanwhile, children played
tag and dogs pulled on their
leashes as the sun set. The tem-
perature slowly dropped.
Gainesville's "Homeless
Night Out and Service Fair" on
Wednesday bustled with people
looking for warm dinners, hand-
me-downs, blankets or sound
advice.
More than 30 service provid-
ers set up under white tents and
formed an arc around the plaza.
Donated coats and shirts were
given out to the homeless.
Donna Summerall, a local
homeless woman, picked out a
Gators shirt from the heap, say-
ing that good things come to
those who wait .
She said her monthly social
security check pays for food
stamps, medical bills and cloth-
ing.
Over the past 20 years, she
has found herself sporadically
homeless.
"Until you have to lay on cold
concrete in freezing 20- to 30-


degree temperatures, you don't
know," Summerall said.
Leonard Nimmons, 58, said he
is homeless. He said people who
hit brick walls in life tend to start
using alcohol and drugs.
"There are only so many
things before a guy turns back to
crime," he said.
As people lined up for din-
ner, Nimmons said, "They don't
know where their next meal is
coming from."
He said homeless people in the
plaza watch out for each other.
"Most of the people take care
of each other because they're
brothers in the
Around fact that they're
GaineSVille home 1 es s, "
Nimmons said.
Ernest Brockington, who sat
on the plaza and ate dinner, said
he probably would have been
homeless if he didn't have rela-
tives and friends who helped.
"I would have been out
here walking in the street,"
Brockington said.
Jim Wright, executive director
of the Alachua County Coalition
for the Homeless and Hungry,
said the night out has evolved
into a bigger event the past
couple of years.
Maryann Longarzo, a volun-
teer with the Alachua County
Victim Services and Rape Crisis
.Center, said it's the first time
she's been at the service fair.
As a past rape victim, she said


she wanted to help others.
"You have to like people,"
Longarzo said.
Booths offered anything from
free Bibles to shelter informa-
tion.
Kent Vann, executive director


for St. Francis House, said people
are often surprised to see how
many services are geared toward
the homeless.
"When they think of the
homeless, they think of shelter
and they don't think of services,"


Vann said.
Brockington said people need
to learn to help their neighbors.
"If I were a millionaire, I'd
be broke anyway because I
would have built a big shelter,"
Brockington said.

Tea party celebrates 'Alice'


Casey Brooke Lawson / Alligator
Cari Keebaugh and John Ingram dressed as Lewis Carroll's famous storybook char-
acters to promote "The Afterlife of Alice in Wonderland" event.


By CASEY BROOKE LAWSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

A smartly dressed white rabbit walked
across the Plaza of the Americas and pulled out
his gold pocket watch to check the time.
The rabbit, who sported square spectacles
and a red polka-dotted necktie, was followed
by Alice, who wore a blue-and-white dress
trimmed with ruffles.
The famous "Alice in Wonderland" char-
acters paraded on the plaza Wednesday and
invited guests to join them for tea to promote
"The Afterlife of Alice in Wonderland" exhibit
at Smathers Library.
The two characters from Lewis Carroll's
children's story were played by John Ingram,
interim director of university libraries, and
Carn Keebaugh, a UF doctoral candidate, re-
spectively.
The storybook event featured the exhibit,
a tea party reception and a performance in
Smathers Library.
At the tea party, guests snacked on black-
and-white petits fours, iced Danish pastries and
cookies.
Guests also drank hot and cold teas as the
people playing Alice, the Hatter, the Hare
and the Dormouse performed the scene, "A
Mad Tea Party" from Chapter T of "Alice in
Wonderland."
"I love 'Alice in Wonderland' because the
whole story is so unpredictable, and every bit
of nonsense is fantastically written," Keebaugh
said.
A silent auction of 12 posters with illustra-
tions from "Alice" editions dating from 1866


through 1999 was held to benefit the Baldwin
Library of Historical Children's Literature at
UF.
The library owns 160 different editions of
"Alice in Wonderland," making it one of the
largest collections of its kind in the country.
Rita Smith, curator of the Baldwin Library,
established the exhibit and event to promote the
collection of children's literature in the library,
which includes early editions of works such as
"Pinocchio," "The Secret Garden," "Winnie The
Pooh" and "The Wizard of Oz."
The centerpiece of the exhibit was a rare
Salvador Dali-illustrated edition of "Alice in
Wonderland."

"I love 'Alice in Wonderland'
because the whole story is so
unpredictable, and every bit of
nonsense is fantastically written."
Carl Keebaugh
UF doctoral candidate

"The story of Alice's fall into the rabbit hole
into a place where nothing is quite as it should
be is a perfect match for Dali's dreamlike im-
ages," Smith said.
The book has not been out of print since its
first publication in the 1860s and is often con-
sidered to be one of the most significant works
of children's literature, said Kenneth Kidd, a UF
associate professor and speaker at the event.
"Alice has transcended our society, not just
in literature but also in opera, music, sympho-
nies, ballets, film and video games," Kidd said.
The exhibit will last through Dec.15.

Gonzales resigned as


attorney general in Aug.


SPEECH, from Page 1

The White House adminis-
tration said the dismissals were
solely based on performance. .
Gonzales called the issue
"an overblown personnel mat-
ter."
However, some officials
have said that the Bush admin-
istration was trying to politi-
cize the justice system.
Questions were raised about
whether Gonzales testified
truthfully about the National
Security Agency's abuse of
surveillance programs.
Bush denied the accusations
against Gonzales.
Meanwhile, Democrats
cheered his resignation.
Bush appointed Peter
Keisler as acting attorney gen-


eral Sept. 17.
Gonzales wasn't the only
high-level official to resign
during Bush's second term.
Gale Norton, Bush's former
secretary of the interior, re-
signed in March 2006. Andrew
H. Card Jr., former chief of staff,
resigned the same month.
Norman Mineta, former sec-
retary of transportation, left in
June 2006.

In a survey, more than half of students polled wanted current system removed


TICKETS, from Page 1

cabinet surveyed 120 students
and found most would prefer
to order tickets from one Web
site and print them from home,
Johnson said.
More than half of the students
surveyed wanted the current


system for football ticket distri-
bution removed, survey results
showed.
For a universal ticketing Web
site, Johnson said he'd like to
implement a lottery system simi-
lar to the one used for football
tickets. If students won the lot-
tery, they would be able to log on
to the Web site and reserve their


tickets.
Mark Gajda, UAA assistant
athletic director for ticket opera-
tions, said an
Student online ticket-
Government ing system
wouldn't
replace current ticketing distri-
bution but function as a supple-
ment.


Gajda said he hopes the online
ticket distribution system will
be available within the next two
years..
"We're not looking to do this
tomorrow," Gajda said.
The UAA is looking into on-
line ticketing systems used by
other universities, especially in
the SEC conference, Gajda said.


Gajda said the UAA has not
looked at cost estimates for an
online ticketing system.
The idea for an online ticket-
ing distribution site came from
requests of UF sports fans.
"It's not really a criticism,"
Gajda said. "It's simply a request
for us to get better, and that's
what we're looking to do."


New-member activities are prohibited.


ATm ,Iulr


he said.
The fraternity faces no allegations of
violence or alcohol violations, Orlando
added.
Alpha Tau Omega, known as ATO, is
prohibited from all fraternity activities on
or off campus until further notice, states
a letter to Fletcher Rush, ATO president,
from Chris Loschiavo, director of Student
Judicial Affairs.
This includes chapter meetings, social
events, service projects, philanthropy proj-
ects and alumni events, Loschiavo wrote.
Members are allowed to live in the
house and eat meals there if they have a
meal plan.
However, the only new members who


can be at the house for meals are those who
have paid for meal plans, he wrote.
All new-member activities, including
initiation events, are prohibited.
Ben Caswell, president of UF's
Interfraternity Council, said the council
would likely leave punishment up to UF's
office of Student Judicial Affairs. Caswell
declined to comment further.
Wynn Smiley, chief executive officer for
ATO's national office, said, "This has not
been an issue that has plagued this chapter
by any means of imagination."
Smiley said ATO would conduct its own
investigation and work closely with UF.
It's too early to speculate about possible
punishments, he said.
"The allegations are certainly serious,"
Smiley said. "We have no tolerance for
hazing, but at this point they're only al-
legations."

a bum

New Jay-Z back to roots


Chuck/Larry gives few laughs


ADRIAN RUHI ) AVENUE WRITER
Jay-Z may have left the Brooklyn
underworld more than a decade ago
to establish himself as one of the most
successful figures in the music in-
dustry, but that didn't stop him from
revisiting his dark past
on "American Gangster,"
his 10th studio album in
12 years.
Inspired by the Ridley _"
Scott film of the same
name, Jay-Z weaves tales
of a young drug dealer
over '70s soul beats to
mixed, but mostly posi-
tive, results.
It's when "American Gangster"
sticks to its theme that Jay-Z is at his
best.
The album's sequence follows a
dope dealer's genesis ("Pray" and
"American Dreamin'"), his peak of
success ("Party Life") and inevitable


downfall ("Fallin'").
Unfortunately, songs like "Hello
Brooklyn 2.0" and lead single "Blue
Magic" share little musically or
lyrically with the album's theme and
dampen the overall concept. "Hello
Brooklyn 2.0," featuring the
grossly overrated Lil Wayne,
h is a sloppy and sparse ode to
Jay-Z's hometown.
"American Gangster"
mostly shines, though. The
Nas-assisted "Success" is a
gritty anthem chronicling
the cocky climax of a crime
lord, while the celebratory
horn-driven "Roc Boys" is
the funkiest Jay-Z single in years.
The album may go over the heads
of younger hip-hop fans, but longtime
fans seeking a return to "Reasonable
Doubt"-era Jay-Z will appreciate the
mature themes and sheer musicality of.
"American Gangster."


After my first viewing of the trailer for "I
Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry," with
its rampant homophobia and the sheer pres-
ence of Adam Sandler ("Punch Drunk Love"
notwithstanding), I knew I was going to hate
it and write a scathing review.
Much to my surprise, the movie, which
came out to rent or own Tuesday, was not as
bad as I expected. But not surprisingly, it
wasn't particularly good, either.
"Chuck and Larry" tells the story of Larry,
a widower who marries his best friend and
fellow New York City firefighter, Chuck, in
order to be able to transfer his pension to his
kids if he dies in the line of duty. The two
struggle with their homophobia as they try
to fool everyone into thinking they're gay.
What starts out as your typical story
of feigning homosexuality for the sake of
insurance fraud soon turns into a story of
friendship and acceptance, albeit with as
few laughs as possible.
Adam Sandler as an "actor" hardly


works in roles where
he's not playing a de-
generate man-child.
Consequently, when
playing ladies' man/
firefighter Chuck, he
comes off like a punk
kid who's pretending
to be serious in front
of the principal.
Kevin James, on the other hand, fares
better as Larry, having had loads of practice
playing a fairly normal guy on his sitcom,
"King of Queens." He. comes far closer to
being sympathetic and likeable than his
counterpart.
The worst part of "Chuck and Larry" is
the lack of humor. Somehow, the small roles
and cameos from other (mostly comedic) ac-
tors end up being funnier than the two stars
themselves. When a David Spade cameo
is funnier than the two stars of the entire
movie, you're in trouble.

SHow do you just know?


You know what I hate? When
people (or more often, movie
* characters) say, "You just know,"
when referring to significant oth-
ers. I even had an older relative
* once tell me that they just knew
"like you know about a good
melon." But even that bewilders
0 me many a time I have cut
open a not yet ripe cantaloupe.
So how on earth do these
* people know? And for that mat-
ter, what is "knowing"?
I do know this: People I grad-
* uated from high school with are
married, I have engaged college
friends and just about everyone
* wants to know if things are seri-
ous with my boyfriend and me.
I also really hate the idea that
girls still go to college in pursuit
of a Mrs. degree, but the truth is,
% .'re at an age (or approaching
it) %%htn thinkuig about mar-
riage and moving in together


and merging lives forever and
always is not so crazy anymore.
I'm truly shocked my pen is
producing this romantic fluff.
And yet I can't help but seri-
ously consider moving in with
my boyfriend upon graduation.
Wher did it all get so serious?
And how do you know when
you're ready for that next step?
Just a few months ago I pub-
lidy outed myself as a relation-
ship-phobe, and now this?
In pursuit of answers, I did a'
very lame thing. I listed all the
reasons I really enjoy being with
my boyfriend (read: I was bored
in a lecture). So here's what I've
gathered, and hopefully the list
can serve as your own litmus
test as. well
I'd rather be together than
apart.
I'm happy 95 percent of the
time There's only so many times


a girl can
hear about
your fan-
tasy football
team, ahem.
T h e
thought of being with anyone
else is mind-boggling.
His once annoying traits are
now somewhat endearing.
A life without my other half
sounds unfulfilling and sad.
Oh, shit.
Perhaps "knowing" is find-
ing a person you semi-perfectly
connect and communicate with
- a person who enriches your
life while encouraging you to
seek your own happiness.
Perhaps "knowing" is not so
difficult. It's just a convergence
of our internal compasses with
our rationalizing selves, after all.
Finding a good melon, how-
ever, I could still use advice on.

Johnny Cash's former touring duo plays his hits tonight


DAVID LOW I AVENUE WRITER
Talking to Bob Wootton is almost
like communicating with a ghost.
His deep voice and slow country
drawl are eerily similar to the leg-
endary Johnny Cash.
BuL Wootton, the guitarist for
Cash from 1968 until Cash's retire-
ment in 1997, is very much alive.
He, along with original drummer
W.S. Holland, is touring the world
playing Cash songs under the name
the Tennessee Three, which is play-
ing at Common Grounds tonight.
Wootton, born and raised in the
hills of Arkansas, began playing mu-
sic when his father taught him how
to play guitar.
As Wootton progressed, he dis-
covered his voice was lower than
most children's around him, and
'- began emulating musicians with
a lower register, such as Tennessee
Ernie Ford and Ernest Tubb.
His greatest breakthrough as a
musician came when he was about
12, practicing on his back porch.


W1911 Ur I eAer s"I., Z4 aroars


"My mother called me in one
day and said, 'You know, there's
someone on the radio that sounds
a little bit like you do,'" Wootton
said. "And it was John doing 'I Walk
the Line,' and I just fell in love with
the song and have been a fan ever
since."
When he got older, he started a
band, naturally playing "some of
John's stuff." Wootton played bars,
dubs and rodeos throughout the
Midwest, which is just what he was
doing when Cash happened to stop
in Arkansas on tour in 1968.
Cash's lead guitarist, Luther
Perkins, had died recently, and the
replacement guitarist had missed
his flight to the show in Arkansas.
"This girl I was with went to
ask June [Carter] and said, I know
somebody that can play John's
songs if you want somebody to play
for him tonight,'" Wootton said.
"And John came off and handed me
his guitar and told me to tune it. He
told me what song he was going to

do. I didn't ask what key it was in
- I just kicked the song off, and it
just floored him."
At the time, Cash was seriously
considering quitting or having to
change his style because no one
could play like Perkins, Wootton
said.
"But evidently, I did," he said.
He joined
the band, which sometime
Cash called the
Tennessee Three, standing
at a seminal with
time in Cash's Bob W(
career when he Tennessee Three n
was kicking his
addiction to am-
phetamines.
When Cash married Carter, she
would watch over him and-flush
any pills down the toilet if she found
them, Wootton said.
"She straightened him out
enough," he said.
Wootton not only witnessed
Cash's redemption of character, but


n

II


the rebirth of his career as well.
Wootton joined the band just
in time to play the string of prison
shows, including San Quentin State
Prison in California.
"The first prison I played with
him after I came to work with him
was the Tennessee State Prison, and
it didn't seem like that big a deal,"
he said. "But when
s I feel like he's we went to San
Quentin, they shut
on the stage those big ol' iron.
e. gates behind you
cotton it makes the
ember hair stand up on
J the back of your
neck a little bit.
You gotta think, 'Boy, what if they
can't get the gate open?'"
Wootton continued to record
and perform with the band until
Cash went into semi-retirement
in 1997. When Cash died in 2003,
the Tennessee Three had a new
purpose.
"So many people die," Wootton


said. "One of my favorites was
Marty Roberts. You never hear of
him anymore, and I didn't want that
to happen to John."
Wootton and Holland, the only
two of the original Tennessee Three,
now tour the world playing the
songs they played with the Man in
Black.
Wootton said many people are
amazed that his voice is so similar
to Cash's.
"We're both from Arkansas,
we're both Cherokee Indian, and
we just had this parallel life together
- we're like brothers," he said. "But
like I say, we just do what we did
when we played for John. It's the
same music."
Wootton said he's flabbergasted
by the response people have to the
band, which is selling out shows al-
most everywhere it goes, he said.
But Wootton doesn't take credit
for the success or the cheers.
"Sometimes I feel like he's stand-
ing on the stage with me," he said.

Professional recording can be expensive for local bands


TRACI ROSENTHAL 0
AVENUE WRITER

Recording and releasing albums
is no longer just for bigwigs in the
music industry. Gainesville bands
are also heading to the studios in
order to give fans souvenirs, to get
their songs heard and of course, to
make some extra money.
But the cost of a recording ses-
sion, master compact disc and the
art and graphics that make it look
legitimate come with a big price tag.
At Skylab Studios, a recording


studio that has been in Gainesville
for about 16 years, it could cost a
band more-than $5,000 just to re-
serve studio time to record and use
the equipment.
Once the studio fee is paid for,
CDs, which usually cost around
$2 per disc, must be ordered. The
average local band that records at
Skylab will order anywhere from
500 to 1,000 CDs, said Gerry King,
owner and chief engineer at Skylab
Studios.
"A band could have to sell 20,000
to 30,000 CDs just to make a profit,"


King said. about $1,000.
Michael Pedron, bassist for local Sweet City Action, another local
funk band Umoja Orchestra, said band, finished recording its first

their "big buy," setting them back From entrance fees, T-shirt sales


and selling CDs, Umoja Orchestra
made back all the money it spent on
album production on the night of its
CD release party.
"When someone buys a CD, they
are essentially paying us back for
five CDs," Pedron said.
But there are a lot of perks to a
band having its own CD that matter
more than the money. ,
"I'm not too worried about mak-
ing the money back," Stanford said.
"It was a lot of fun to do, and now
we have something to show people.
It all comes back around."

Full Circle


BOtler follows in

mentor's footsteps
By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

Their relationship has changed many times
over.
Coach and player. Co-workers. Friends.
One spent 12 years as the UF women's basketball
coach, stepping down in March 2002 with the most
wins in program history. '
The other played on some of those teams that
put the Gators on the map.
Though their relationship is ever-changing,
Carol Ross and Amanda Butler will always share a
bond tied to UF.

Rookies Together
The pair both first arrived in Gainesville in 1990,
Ross' first season as UF's coach and Butler's fresh-
man year at point guard.
Butler quickly impressed Ross with the way she
carried herself.
"You could tell immediately that she had an
aura, a presence, a command," Ross said. "Had I
not known...that she was a freshman, I probably
would've thought she was a senior captain."
Butler would start at point guard for the next
four years, making an immediate impact, finishing
third in assists in the Southeastern Conference her
freshman year.
"You always hope your point guard is going
to be an extension of your personality and your
philosophy, and we are a lot alike," Ross said. "We
expect good things to happen."
The 5-foot-8 guard learned toughness from her
coach, who stressed there was no justification for
sitting out a game.
"Iniufies were, to me, not a factor," Butler said.
"If I was conscious and could still walk around, I
didn't see any reason why I shouldn't be able to
play."
That mentality would be tested during her junior
year, when she broke her nose in practice, just be-
fore a game against Florida State.
The face mask Butler was supposed to wear did
not arrive in time.
She reluctantly agreed to Ross' recommenda-
tion that she sit the first half and see how th6 game
progressed.
"At halftime, I was walking to the locker room,
and I was looking at her and she was looking at
me," Butler said. "She goes, 'Well you ready to go


in?' and I said, 'Well yeah.'"
The possibility of further injury didn't limit her
aggressive style of play.
"She took charges, she drove to the rim," Ross
said. "She played the same fearless way she's al-
ways played."
The Gators defeated the Seminoles, and four
days later, Butler would become the first colle-
giate women's basketball player to wear the Bill
Laimbeer-style face mask in a game against South
Carolina.
While her toughness was never in question, her
future profession wasn't as easily determined.
Butler considered becoming a physical therapist
or even possibly attending law school.
Ross knew differently.
"I could always tell which ones were going to
coach before they could," Ross said. "And she goes,
'No, no, I'm going to be a physical therapist,' and I
said, 'No, you'll be a coach.'"
"You could tell immediately that she had
an aura, a presence, a command."
Carol Ross
UF women's basketball coach

Her interactions with her teammates generated
nothing but mutual respect.
"She had a magnetic personality her team-
mates gravitated to her," Ross said. "She had their
respect not by what she said but by example."
That leadership capability paid off as Butler
brought out the best in her teammates.
It was under her floor leadership that the Gators
made the NCAA Tournament in 1993 and 1994, the
program's first-ever appearances.
"She could get other people to do what she need-
ed them to do," Ross said. "That's what coaching is.
If you can do that as a teammate, as a player, with
your peers, you've got head coach written all-over
you. It's just when and where."

Quick Transition
When Butler graduated, Ross hired her as an as-
sistant coach. It was a rare occurrence for Ross, who
couldn't recall another time she had ever asked a
player to immediately join her staff.
"I didn't want to hire my own players because
then you had to pick and choose, and I felt like they
would grow if they went away," Ross said. "She
was just so good and so talented,, and I wanted
her to be in the coaching profession. I thought she
had a great gift. I thought it would be a win-win. I
knew she would help us, and I thought we could

UF revisits


Moss' block

By MIKE MCCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alligator.org

Of all the great plays that led to UF's
national championship win against No. 1
Ohio State last year, the greatest came two
months before that game was even played.
Before defensive end Jarvis Moss' fin-
gers were covered in championship rings,
they made one of the most critical plays in
Gators history.
In UF's final -regu- i",- '

lar-season Southeastern
Conference game, Moss
blocked South Carolina
Football kicker Ryan Succop's 48-
yard field goal attempt as
time expired to seal a 17-16
win and send the Gators toward Glendale.
"That was the biggest play," said defen-
sive end Derrick Harvey, who was clearing
space for Moss to jump on the final play. --
"That's what got us to the national cham- -.
pionship."
What made the feat evenmore improba- '
ble was that the Gators had readyblocked 4 .l / .
two kicks in the game. Mosshad rejected a '
fourth-quarter extra point, and earlier Ray
McDonald had got a hand on a third-quar-
ter attempt from 47 yards.
"I had never had a kick blocked before A
that game, so that was a tough- thing," ; .,""
Succop said. "Jarvis Moss just made a heck .'*'
of a play There's not too much you can do
about that."Fe Photo

UF FOOT :. LL

Tebow semi-finalist for Maxwell Award


By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Staff Writer
bjones@alligator.org

UF quarterback Tim Tebow was one
of 15 players selected as a semi-finalist
for the Maxwell Award, the advisory
committee for the award announced
Wednesday.
The Maxwell Award is presented
annually to the nation's top college
football player.
Tebow has thrown for 21 touch-
downs and rushed for 14 so far this
season, and he, leads the nation in
passing efficiency and the Southeastern
Conference in total offense.


With his latest rushing dash, the
sophomore tied a school record for
rushing touchdowns in a season and
broke the SEC record for touchdown
runs by a quarterback in a single sea-
son.
"Off the top of my head, he's as
good as I've had."
Urban Meyer
UF football coach

BEST EVER?: Coach Urban Meyer has
credited return man Brandon James
as the main reason for a couple of the
Gators' wins this season. Wednesday,


he said James was likely the best kick
returned he has ever coached.
"I'd hate to have someone give me a
call and say, 'Coach, I thought I was the
best one,'" Meyer said. "Off the top of
my head, he's as good as I've had."
James is averaging 20.7 yards per
punt return this season with one touch-
down.
While he has yet to score on a kickoff
return this season, he is averaging 29.4
yards per return and consistently give
the Gators great field position.
"He's a guy that has a lot of ability
back there," Meyer said. "I spend more
time with the rules on the guys block-
ing for him than the guy catching it."


Gators blank


UK, advance'


to face LSU

By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Writer

Entering the opening round of the
Southeastern Conference tournament,
forward Ashlee Elliott said the Gators
were seeking to avenge their loss to
Kentucky in last year's tournament title
game.
- UF (14-4-2, 10-4 SEC) got its payback
Wednesday. On a cold night in Orange
Beach, Ala., the Gators put the heat on
the Wildcats (10-7-3; 4-7-1 SEC) sending
them back to Lexington with a 4-0 loss
and only faint hopes of an NCAA tour-
nament berth.
The Gators will now advance to face
LSU on Friday night
at 8:30.
UFburied Kentucky
early, netting three of
II four goals in the open-
ing half.
SForward Stacy
Bishop scored the
Burleigh match's first goal in
the eighth minute offli-
a Karly Findorff assist.
"It was really important," said Coach
Becky Burleigh of scoring the first goal.
"Every other game we've played against
Kentucky has been a struggle, so for us
to go in there and get an early goal set a
great tone.
"Kentucky generally has a very strong
defense, and for us to come in and play
that well is great."
The Gators defense held strong, re-
cording its 13th shutout of the season
and ninth in 10 matches. UF outshot the
Wildcats 11-0 in the half and kept them
from establishing a rhythm on offense.
The defensive dominance continued, as
the Wildcats were limited to just one shot
in the second half.
"I thought our team did a good job of
playing with confidence," Burleigh said.
"We played strong, aggressive defense,
and we were able to keep them from get-
ting the ball in position to score the ball.
KeLeigh Hudson scored the second

Win validates coach's early tenure


Ross: Expect Gators in Final Four


MWHOOPS, from page 22

help her."
Butler remains thankful for that first
opportunity.
"There's no question that she has been
the most prevalent influence on my coach-
ing career," she said. "Besides me playing
Jfor her, she gave me my first opportunity.
That's something I think you never take
lightly professionally -someone who
takes a chance on you, and she did that
with me. She opened the door to coaching
for me."
Butler spent two seasons on staff, then
left to become an assistant coach at Austin
Peay State for four years.
A six-year stint followed at North.
Carolina-Charlotte.
"(Ross) put UF as a women's bas-
ketball program on the map."
/ Amanda Butler
UF women's basketball coach

After two years as an assistant coach
and two years as associate head coach,
Butler earned the top job in 2005 when pre-
vious head coach Katie Meier left.
In her first season at the helm, she led
the 49ers to a share of the Atlantic-10 regu-
lar-season title and a berth in the Women's
National Invitation Tournament. She was
named A-10 Coach of the Year. A second
WNIT berth followed the next season.
Butler and Ross stayed in close con-
tact throughout the years, as Butler often
turned to her former coach for advice.
"She's just rarely wrong," Butler said.
"When someone's rarely wrong, you need
to keep going back to the well to get those
answers."
or Then, this past April an offer came that
Butler could have never imagined.
"I realized as I'm sitting in (UF Athletics
Director) Jeremy (Foley's) office that I was


going to be the next coach here," she said.

Reunited Again
Now Butler's back in the town where
she got her start as a player, and she
brought back if only for a moment the
coach who gave her the opportunity.
Ross came to Gainesville the last week-
end in October as a team consultant to
spend a few days observing practice and
offer tips to both coaches and players.
The new coach enjoyed introducing her
players to her old coach and mentor.
"She put UF as a women's basketball
program on the map," Butler said. "It's im-
portant for them to know. I think that hav-
ing a sense of history is very important."
Ross expects similar success during
Butler's tenure, since her former player
never fears a challenge, whether it's play-
ing with a broken nose or winning a re-
cruit.
"It's not a surprise that in our first trip to
the NCAA tournament that she would be
in a uniform," Ross said. "It won't be a sur-
prise to me when this team gets to a Final
Four at some point and she's going to be
the head coach in charge. She's not scared
of what has not been done."
Butler knows she wouldn't be the per-
son and coach she is today without Ross'
guidance.
"Her success is undeniable," Butler
said. "I just feel very fortunate to have her
as a person in my life, professionally as a
resource and personally as a friend."
Now Ross gets to sit back and watch as
her former player works to bring her alma
mater back to relevancy.
"When you coach, you always want
your players to dream big and then to be
able to live it," Ross said. "To sit and watch
knowing that she's the head coach at UF, I
still see an 18-year-old kid who loved every
moment of being a Florida Gator. She knew
what it meant to have Florida strapped
across her chest competing. She's living
her dream."

championship game, but any hopes of a
national title would have been dashed.
"That was a great day in Florida foot-
ball history," Coach Urban Meyer said.
"It propelled us to Glendale, Arizona.
The SEC East was already won, but that
got us a chance to keep going on the na-
tional level."
A loss to former UF coach Steve
Spurrier would have altered the percep-
tion of Meyer as well.
Meyer was hailed as one of the top
college football coaches after he finished
his second year in Gainesville with a
perfect home record and a national title
- two things that would never have
happened without the block.
Succop had only missed one kick
prior to the game, a 51-yarder that hit the
upright in the Gamecocks' second game
of the year. When the reliable kicker
lined up for his attempt in The Swamp,


the entire stadium was on edge, except
for a few players.
"We already knew he was going to
block it," Harvey said. "We just had to
get a push, and he was going to get up
and block it. ... That's what first-round
picks do."
Succop was convinced
his kick was headed
through the uprights until
Football Moss' left hand got in the
way.
"When I hit it, it felt great," Succop
said. "I was just real excited because I
thought it was going in, and when he
got a finger on it, it was pretty disap-
pointing."-
UF quarterback Tim Tebow hopes the
kick was heading awry anyway, but he's
fully appreciative of Moss' impact.
"Hopefully it would've gone wide
left, but that was a pretty good field-goal
kicker, so he might've made it," Tebow
said. "The season would've been a lot
different."


UF tops SEC in All-Conference nods


SOCCER, from page 23

goal in the 26th minute on a shot as-
sisted by Shana Hudson, and Bishop
rounded out the first-half scoring, con-
'necting on her ninth goal of the season
in the 37th minute from an assist by
Elliott.
Forward Bianca Gibbs added the
final score in the 90th minute for good
measure.
Despite dominating Kentucky,
Burleigh downplayed revenge as a fac-
tor in the win.
"I think our players are.bigger than
that," she said. "Our goal is winning
games, and for us it's all about con-
tinuing our momentum entering the
NCAA tournament."

GATORS HONORED: Two months ago, it


seemed unlikely UF would be heavily
represented on the All-SEC teams.
But with UF now riding high on a
ten-game winning streak, UF led the
SEC with five all-conference players.
Defender Lauren Hyde and for-
wards Bishop and Elliott were named
to the All-SEC First
Team. Midfielders
Ameera Abdullah
and Hudson were
named to the second
squad.
Findorff was
named to the SEC
Bishop All-Freshman Team.
A noteworthy omission from the
All-Conference teams is forward
Ashley Harris.
The senior was tied with Bishop
and Hudson for a UF-best seven goals
at the end of the regular season.

You Decide. ON CAMPUS Gonzales to speak at Phillips Center By KIM WILMATH Alligator Staff Writer kwilmath@alligator.org Alberto Gonzales, the former U.S. attorney general who resigned in August, will speak at UF on Nov. 19. Student Government records state Gonzales was paid $40,000 for his speech at UF, which is the first college appearance since he resigned, said Steven Blank, Accent chairman. Accent, SG's speakers bureau, is sponsoring the appearance. The speech will take place 7:15 p.m. at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, stated a press release from Accent. The event has been in the works for a few weeks, Blank said. Free tickets will be available for students with Gator 1 cards on Nov. 14 and for the general public Nov. 15 at the Phillips Center and the University Box Office, the release stated. Blank said he expects a full house. In 2005, Accent brought another former state attorney to UF -Janet Reno. The show was so successful that the bureau jumped at the chance to host Gonzales, Blank said. Gonzales was appointed the first Hispanic attorney general in February 2005 and later played a role in President Bush's fight in the war on terror after Sept. 11. Gonzales resigned in August after a controversial tenure. Gonzales faced scrutiny over his leadership of the Department of Justice in 2006, after he dismissed nine U.S. attorneys. SEE SPEECH, PAGE 9 Fraternity accused of depriving members of sleep UF investigating allegations By KIM WILMATH Alligator Staff Writer kwilmath@alligator.org A UF fraternity has been accused of hazing new members by depriving them of sleep, ordering them to clean older members' rooms and throwing them in a "mud pit." UF's chapter of Alpha Tau Omega is suspended until further notice while UF's office of Student Judicial Affairs investigates the accusations. Steve Orlando, UF's Greek spokesman, said the Life sleep deprivation allegedly occurred when older members ordered new members to participate in "the lineup" during early hours of the morning, where they had to recite certain fraternity passages. If the new members did not deliver the messages perfectly, older members punished them by throwing them in a "mud pit" behind the fraternity house, Orlando said. He said the accusations include requesting new members to clean rooms or serve as designated drivers for older members at any hour of the night. Requiring new members to be designated drivers at all hours also causes sleep deprivation, SEE ATO, PAGE 9 Online ticket-distribution system may be in UF's future N A STUDENT SENATOR HAS MET WITH UAA ABOUT THE ISSUE. By ILEANA MORALES Alligator Writer imorales@alligator.org Susan Budovsky, a UF anthropology junior, said she's never gotten tickets to a UF football or basketball game. When she tries to call the Gator Athletic Ticket Order Request System, known as G.A.T.O.R.S., she said she has never been able to get through. "It was so frustrating because other freshman girls seemed to be getting tickets when I had been on the phone for hours," Budovsky said. Student Sen.

"It was so frustrating because other freshman girls seemed to be getting tickets when I had been on the phone for hours."

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 2007 0 ALLIGATOR, 3 BUSINESS New Gators plates hit shelves By DEVIN CULCLASURE Alligator Writer dculclasure@alligator.org Avid Gators fans can add a new decorative plate to their collection of automotive accessories while helping UF raise money to cope with budget losses. Dan Williams, UF's director of marketing, said new plates went on sale at local Gators shops and the UF Bookstore on Friday The plate, which features a Gators logo and the word "CHAMPS,"resembleslicense plates from the Department of Motor Vehicles. The price for a plate at the UP Bookstore is $19.95, Theoatorgaelon according to the bookstore's Web site. Williams said proceeds from the sale would go back into the UF branding campaign's budget. UF's Marketing Communications Web site states that the branding campaign aims to recruit students, staff, faculty and recognition by hurling itself into the public eye with advertising techniques such as The Gator Nation and Florida Tomorrow campaigns. "Because of our budget challenges, we've been looking for ways to compensate," Williams said. E He said he hopes to have the plates available soon at Gators shops around Florida as well as at Wal-Mart stores in Gainesville, Jacksonville and several other Florida cities. They will also be available for Gators alumni clubs around the state to sell for fundraisers. Williams said his.office had been working on the idea for about eight months. UF also worked with the DMV to make sure the plates were similar to those from the department, he said. The design changed several WA, times before UF and the DMV -~ were satisfied. For legal reasons, the plates could not be too similar. After UF and the departent approved the demin Prison Rehabilitative Industries and Diversified Enterprises Inc., which works withprisoninmates inFlorida, manufactured the plates. Williams said the final plate, which is intended for the front of vehicles, complements Gators plates with "National Champs" or "Gator Nation" written on them that are already available for the rear of vehicles. "It has a very official feel to it," Williams said. "The word 'champs' is something that really represents past, present and future championships, and people can keep it on their vehicles for a long time."

4, ALLIGATOR E THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 8,2007 UF group talks to children about fighting bacteria 0 THE PRE-PHARMACY SOCIETY VISITS SCHOOLS. By KAYLA GRIFFIN Alligator Contributing Writer Since his junior year of high school, UF sophomore Tyler Gums has been planning a way to combat the growing problem of antibiotic resistance. Now, as president of the PrePharmacy Society and after months of planning, Gums finally has the manpower and resources to put his plan into action. However, his plan doesn't involve expensive, high-tech equipment. It doesn't even require a lab. What it does need is a classroom full of eager fourth and fifth graders. On Oct. 29, Gums, along with members of the Pre-Pharmacy Society, began visiting schools in Alachua County as part of an educational program called Antibiotics & You geared toward children. While an exact date is not set, more presentations are planned for the future. "These lds are smart," Gums said. "They know there is an issue, and they're going to be able to look out for it. We just want them to know what's going on."' The goals of the presentations are to teach elementary and middleschool students the differences between a viral and bacterial infection, explain antibiotic resistance and inform them of how to protect, against infection. "That's where the most antibiotic resistance is -in children," Gums said. "We want to let them know that we want to try and protect the future, if that is at all possible." The packets the club will use for the presentations come from the Michigan Antibiotic Resistance Reduction Coalition, a nonprofit coalition comprised of professional and community organizations concerned with the misuse and overuse of antibiotics. To make the information more fun for the kids, the dub has prepared songs, skits, games and hands-on activities to complement the packets and slides that are shown on a projector. A pamphlet handed out to the kids has a word search, a rhyming song and a character called the Resistance Ranger. One activity involves popping a balloon filled with glow-in-the-dark liquid to demonstrate the germspreading power of a sneeze, Gums said. "Anything that makes the principle behind the project obvious to the kids, the more hands-on, the more you can get the kids doing and interacting, the more to learn about that ex Marilyn Waylen, a fifth er at Brentwood Elem who hosted the first p Waylen, who once when he was in ee said it is rewarding to students giving back nity and thinks Gun her students.

While the dub wants the kids to have fun during the presentations, the increase in antibiotic resistance is a serious problem in the medical community Gums said. Because bacteria are constantly evolving, pharmaceuticals have to develop new antibiotics to combat illnesses that were once easy to treat, such as a staph infection, Gums said. Bacteria that survive antibiotics go on to reproduce more resistant bacteria, he said. The problem is that the pharmaceuticals are not keeping up with the advancing bacteria. help them because antibiotics can treat only bacterial infections. But because the patient has taken time out of his or her day to visit the doctor and is paying for the visit, the doctor is pressured to give the patient medication without testing to see whether he or she has a bacterial infection. Gums said he would eventually like to see the program spread to other colleges in Florida. When the club has visited all the middle and elementary schools, he said the society may begin visiting high schools as well. "I want to impact the community and members as positively as I can," Gums said. HEALTH INSURANCE "Students need Health Insurance. Help protect yourself from the rising cost of medical services.

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, 5 GREEK LIFE Sorority leads 'green' efforts NINA MAHMOUDI Alligator Contributing Writer The UF chapter of Delta Delta Delta Sorority, known as Tri-Delta, is leading an effort to help the Greek community of Gainesville become more environmentally friendly. The sorority is encouraging all Greek chapters at UF to join its new "Greeks Going Green" campaign and will host a meeting Nov. 18 to speak about the effort with delegates from each UF Greek organization. Greeks will be challenged each year to make one lifestyle change and to live in the most environmentally efficient manner, said Kylie Savino, the TriDelta member who founded the campaign. For the chapters that have houses, changes such as implementing a new recycling plan, switching to recycled paper products instead of Styrofoam. or using compact fluorescent lightbulbs in their houses can make a huge difference, Savino said. Chapters that don't have a house can still participate by having members pledge to make lifestyle changes, such as bringing their own grocery bags when they go shopping, Savino said. Every chapter will be asked to participate in fundraising for the campaign. "Susta inability is such a hot trend right now. We want to be able to jump on the bandwagon and take the opportunity to be influential in our efforts." Kylle Savino "Greeks Going Green" founder T-shirt sales, sponsored by local businesses, for all chapters and canvas-bag sales for the sororities will supplement start-up costs of the endeavor. Savino said she hopes to gain the support of Gainesville in funding the campaign. Some local businesses are already on board. Mike Amish, owner of Indigo, a store that specializes in environmentally friendly products, will help at the .meeting. He said he will educate fraternity and sorority members on some ways to go green. Some products the store carries can also help, he said.."Half the battle is being a conscious consumer," Amish said. Savino emphasized the impact the Greek community can make with this campaign. "Sustainability is such a hot trend right now. We want to be able to jump on the bandwagon and take the opportunity to be influential in our efforts," she said. Savino said she hopes other Tri-Delta chapters around the nation will adopt the campaign if it proves successful. Other chapter members share her hope for the effort's potential impact at UF. "If enough people take it seriously, it could definitely make a big impact," said Becky Koppel, a freshman in Alpha Epsilon Phi Sorority.

6, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 8,2007 Editorial Hazing Horrors Accusations are no joking matter our daily fun fact: In Florida, hazing is a'third-degree felony if it results in serious injury or death. The "antihazing law" was passed in 2005, after lawmakers pushed for legislation following the death of a University of Miami student in 2001. Why are we raising this point? Because the UF chapter of Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity was suspended after -you guessed it -hazing accusations. A letter from Chris Loschiavo, director of Student Judicial Affairs, said the fraternity is suspended until further notice while allegations of hazing are investigated. ATO has been accused of forcing new members to clean rooms in the fraternity's house and serve as designated drivers at all times, including the middle of the night. ATO has also been accused of depriving new members of sleep. Sleep deprivation, as college students know, has many adverse effects, including increased anxiety, delayed reaction time and sometimes even death. It is also considered a forn of torture, according to the American Psychological Association. These hazing allegations go against not only Florida law, but also the UF Student Conduct Code and the Office of Sorority and Fraternity Affairs' antihazing contract. Part of the contract is lifted straight from the Florida law, which specifically addresses sleep deprivation. "House clean-ups" are also a violation of the contract. This is not just a UF issue. This is not just a moral issue. This is a legal issue. Hazing is never acceptable, especially from people in organizations who try to portray themselves as leaders on campus and in the community. We're not so gullible as to believe ATO is the only group that might be hazing its members, but it is the group under investigation. If the allegations are true, any members found guilty of participating should be punished not only by UF but also by the state. The only way to deter future hazing is to make the punishment harsh enough. Hazing should never be taken lightly. It should be completely unacceptable to the Greek community -not just on the surface in antihazing contracts, but in the halls of the houses, too. Accent Accolades First Sen. John Kerry came. Then it was Gandhi's grandson. Then Dr. Jack Kevorkian was promised to us. Now we're getting former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. We've gotta ask, Accent, when will it stop? Hopefully it won't. We must say, this year's lineup of Accent speakers is much more interesting than in recent semesters. The most interesting speakers during the 2005-06 school year were "Rent" actor Anthony Rapp and the iberconservative Ann Coulter. We don't do this very often, but we're going to go out on a limb and compliment Accent on a job well done this year -so far. Gonzales' Nov. 19 speech will be his first college appearance since he resigned Aug. 27. Accent chairman Steven Blank and his staff have done a good job this semester. Let's hope they keep it up in the spring. The bar is set, but we know Accent can raise it even higher. al the independent florida algat Ror Lyndsey Lewis EDITOR Adam Berry MANAGING EDITOR Jessica Holland OPINIONS EDITOR Jessica Miller Leigh Shapiro EDITORIAL BOARD The Alligator encourages comments from readers.

That is, I failed to abstain from my constant use of Facebook. I told myself I would break my addiction to the all-consuming Internet socializing site. I thought we'd all be better off communicating with two Dixie cups connected by string. And I've noticed the slow decay of our valued and traditional socializing habits -things we've spent thousands of years cultivating. But the situation can only worsen, thanks to Facebook founders' decision to inject our conversations with advertisements. By the way, this column is brought to you by Verizon. Without Verizon, I wouldn't have cell phone service, and I would have to use those Dixie cups. Verizon: Can you hear me now? Good. It's also brought to youby Dixie cups. Without Dixie cups, my comment in paragraphs two and five would not be possible. Dixie: Make it a Dixie day. Just kidding. I don't have enough Facebook friends to be sponsored at this point. Facebook unveiled its new plan to have companies advertise through users' buying habits, hobbies and interests, according to a Wednesday article from The Associated Press. Apparently, Facebook will give members some control over whether to share information with companies, but enough users must say yes for the program to work. So we're still plagued by addiction. Now it's just an addiction possibly sponsored by our most-purchased products' companies. A market analyst in the article called Facebook "everybody's darling." I think he meant "darkling." If users feel exposed now, wait until corporate America gets its hands on their profiles. Facebook would be exploiting its members, possibly scaring off friends with differing views about the products members are "advertising." Plus, since when does socializing equal selling? But let's face facts. This Web site, with a net worth of about $15 billion, is nowhere near extinction. Facebook has become a necessary evil, like cell phones or politicians. I'll be the first to admit Facebook allows me to stay Stephanie Rosenberg in contact with various people letters@allgator.org who I probably would never talk to regularly. For instance, I recently reconnected with a high-school friend through Facebook, and as a result I learned about an internship opportunity. But first I Facebook-stalked her and found out everything she's been up to since we lost touch. I didn't even really have to chat with her. Facebook is also a self-esteem booster. Whenever I've had a Debbie Downer kind of a day, I just stare at my Facebook picture and say, "Damn, I look good." Who am I kidding? Facebook is not necessary -it's just evil. But for some reason, I can't stop using it. I'm sure most people share this almost inexplicable Facebook obsession. But hopefully, I'll wake up and smell the strategically placed advertisements throughout my conversations with friends on Facebook. Hopefully, I'll be enraged when I see Travelocity posted my profile picture to advertise its service. Hopefully, I'll end my obsession with Facebook when I, realize it's gone too far. Hopefully, I'll see that Facebook's greedy move will trivialize any sincerity left in the Web site. But maybe it won't end there. Maybe I won't even stop visiting the site after I see Facebook has essentially pimped out all its members to its sponsoring companies. But exposing a nefarious corporate plot makes me hungry. I think I'll head to Publix, where shopping is a pleasure. Stephanie Rosenberg is a junior majoring in journalism. Her column appears on Thursdays.

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, 7 Letters to the Editor UF students went to D.C. summit, too In response to Tuesday's article "Students travel to capital," SFCC students were not the only Gainesville students to attend Power Shift 2007. About eight Gators were there this past weekend representing UF at the largest global-warming summit ever. As the article indicated, students lobbied politicians to create 5 million new "green" jobs, cut carbon emissions by 80 percent by the year 2050, and to stop the construction of all new power plants. UF students met with the staff of Sen. Bill Nelson, attended various workshops and panels, and rallied on Capitol Hill. The conference reiterated and strengthened my belief that action needs to be taken now to protect the environment and secure our future. As leaders in Florida, I hope UF students not only realize the severity of this issue but also realize their unique ability as students to make a difference. N U E Bill Nye speech needed la The current Accent staff h to reach the bar set by previo While it has brought notabl speakers, it has not provided environments for UF students. The last two major events Accent has produced have been mired in controversy and unhappiness within the student body and the general public of Gainesville. The latest event put on by Accent, the Bill Nye "The Science Guy" speech, showed the Accent staff's incompetence. A simple poll of the student body would have indicated a large interest toward this event, and Accent could have easily leaked that a larger venue was required. These two events have cast a dark cloud over the reputation of Accent and UP. Hopefully, Accent will learn from its mistakes and put on a successful event all students can enjoy in the future. Adrian Hayes Santos 4BA Students should get to enter speech first I attended Nye's speech Tuesday night, and while I thought his program was wonLindsay Feinberg derful, the venue left something to be desired 3LS -namely, the choice to open the Phillips Center to the general public rather than to students only. The massive crowd of parents and young children who showed up prevented rger venue many students from seeing Nye in person as not been able and required throngs of students to watch the us Accent staffs. speech outside on a projector. e and interesting If student money is spent to bring Nye to accommodating campus, shouldn'tstudents be the first ones admitted to see him? I don't mind if the general public shows up to see him, but they should be the ones waiting outside, not the students whose money funded the event. Chris Tingley 2EG Nye speech overflow setup inadequate I am sorry to say my first experience attending an Accent event may be my last. After rushing to the Phillips Center from class, I was told (after only 10 minutes of admitting students) no more tickets were available. Fine. I was too late. No big deal. I then made my way back outside to a projection screen where we were told we could watch Nye's speech. Even though we were crammed into a small space, and a large portion of the crowd had to stand, I still hoped I would have a good experience. However, after Nye started speaking, it became obvious that Accent was unprepared for a crowd this size. The sound outside wasn't up and running for nearly the first five minutes of the event something that should have been addressed in the 45 minutes we were waiting for the speech to start. Also, the picture quality was terrible. Nye was a tiny figure in the center of the screen. The whole bottom of the picture was of people in the audience. If I couldn't be in the theater listening to the speech, the least Accent could have done was provide the best possible experience for those ofus who were dedicated enough to sit on the grass outside. Oh well, at least no one was Tasered. Ashley Carnifax 3EG U U U Sport and fitness classes shouldn't be cut I am writing to voice my opinion about cutting back the sports and fitness classes. As a student who has enjoyed taking several sports and fitness classes, I am dismayed that UF no longer finds them necessary. Aside from the obvious benefits of making time to exercise and actually having to follow through with that commitment, these classes allow students to unwind and enjoy their elective credits. Where else will we be able to conveniently leam unique skills such as archery, fencing or bowling, not to mention traditional sports such as golf, tennis and swimming? Yes, students can go to the gym, swimming pool, tennis court or golf course, but where can they go to learn the rules and regulations of the sport? These classes are not a waste of time. They are popular with the student body. Why take that away from us?

8, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 8,2007 Homeless people converge on plaza for 'night out' E WARM DINNERS AND CLOTHING WERE GIVEN OUT. By APRIL DUDASH Alligator Writer Bikes and backpacks scattered Downtown Community Plaza as people gathered around benches, eating meals of chicken and green beans. Meanwhile, children played tag and dogs pulled on their leashes as the sun set. The temperature slowly dropped. Gainesville's "Homeless Night Out and Service Fair" on Wednesday bustled with people looking for warm dinners, handme-downs, blankets or sound advice. More than 30 service providers set up under white tents and formed an arc around the plaza. Donated coats and shirts were given out to the homeless. Donna Sunmerall, a local homeless woman, picked out a Gators shirt from the heap, saying that good things come to those who wait:. She said her monthly social security check pays for food stamps, medical bills and clothing. Over the past 20 years, she has found herself sporadically homeless. "Until you have to lay on cold concrete in freezing 20to 30degree temperatures, you don't know," Summerall said. Leonard Nimmons, 58, said he is homeless. He said people who hit brick walls in life tend to start using alcohol and drugs. "There are only so many things before a guy turns back to crime," he said. As people lined up for dinner, Nimmons said, "They don't know where their next meal is coming from." He said homeless people in the plaza watch out for each other. "Most of the people take care of each other because they're brothers in the Around fact that they're GaineSVII1e h o m e I e s s, Nimmons said. Ernest Brockington, who sat on the plaza and ate dinner, said he probably would have been homeless if he didn't have relatives and friends who helped. "I would have been out here walking in the street," Brockington said. Jim Wright, executive director of the Alachua County Coalition for the Homeless and Hungry, said the night out has evolved into a bigger event the past couple of years. Maryann Longarzo, a volunteer with the Alachua County Victim Services and Rape Crisis *Center, said it's the first time she's been at the service fair. As a past rape victim, she said she wanted to help others. "You have to like people," Longarzo said. Booths offered anything from free Bibles to shelter information. Kent Vann, executive director for St. Francis House, said people are often surprised to see how many services are geared toward the homeless. "When they think of the homeless, they think of shelter and they don't think of services," Nicole sateer / Aiiigator stare People line up to be issued identification cards from a Department of Motor-Vehicles bus at the Homeless Night Out and Service Fair at the Downtown Community Plaza on Wednesday evening. Tea party celebrates 'Alice' Casey Brooke Lawson / Alligator Cari Keebaugh and John Ingram dressed as Lewis Carroll's famous storybook characters to promote "The Afterlife of Alice in Wonderland" event. By CASEY BROOKE LAWSON Alligator Contributing Writer A smartly dressed white rabbit walked across the Plaza of the Americas and pulled out his gold pocket watch to check the time. The rabbit, who sported square spectacles and a red polka-dotted necktie, was followed by Alice, who wore a blue-and-white dress trimmed with ruffles. The famous "Alice in Wonderland" characters paraded on the plaza Wednesday and invited guests to join them for tea to promote "The Afterlife of Alice in Wonderland" exhibit at Smathers Library. The two characters from Lewis Carroll's children's story were played by John Ingram, interim director of university libraries, and Cari Keebaugh, a UF doctoral candidate, respectively. The storybook event featured the exhibit, a tea party reception and a performance in Smathers Library. At the tea party, guests snacked on blackand-white petits fours, iced Danish pastries and cookies. Guests also drank hot and cold teas as the people playing Alice, the Hatter, the Hare and the Dormouse performed the scene, "A Mad Tea Party" from Chapter 7 of "Alice in Wonderland." "I love 'Alice in Wonderland' because the whole story is so unpredictable, and every bit of nonsense is fantastically written," Keebaugh sald. A silent auction of 12 posters with illustrations from "Alice" editions dating from 1866 through 1999 was held to benefit the Baldwin Library of Historical Children's Literature at UE The library owns 160 different editions of "Alice in Wonderland," making it one of the largest collections of its kind in the country. Rita Smith, curator of the Baldwin Library, established the exhibit and event to promote the collection of children's literature in the library, which includes early editions of works such as "Pinocchio," "The Secret Garden," "Winnie The Pooh" and "The Wizard of Oz." The centerpiece of the exhibit was a rare Salvador Dali-illustrated edition of "Alice in Wonderland." "I love 'Alice in Wonderland' because the whole story is so unpredictable, and every bit of nonsense is fantastically written." Cari Keebaugh UF doctoral candidate "The story of Alice's fall into the rabbit hole into a place where nothing is quite as it should be is a perfect match for Dali's dreamlike im.ages," Smith said. The book has not been out of print since its first publication in'the 1860s and is often considered to be one of the most significant works of children's literature, said Kenneth Kidd, a UF associate professor and speaker at the event. "Alice has transcended our society, not just in literature but also in opera, music, symphonies, ballets, film and video games," Kidd said. The exhibit will last through Dec.15.

SPEECH, from Page 1 eral Sept. 17. Gonzales wasn't the only The White House administration said the dismissals were solely based on performance. Gonzales called the issue "an overblown personnel matter." However, some officials have said that the Bush adrninistration was trying to politicize the justice system. Questions were raised about whether Gonzales testified truthfully about the National Security Agency's abuse of surveillance programs. Bush denied the accusations against Gonzales. Meanwhile, Democrats cheered his resignation. Bush appointed Peter Keisler as acting attorney genhigh-level official to resign during Bush's second term. Gale Norton, Bush's former secretary of the interior, resigned in March 2006. Andrew H. Card Jr., former chief of staff, resigned the same month.

More than half of the students surveyed wanted the current system for football ticket distribution removed, survey results showed. For a universal ticketing Web site, Johnson said he'd like to implement a lottery system similar to the one used for football tickets. If students won the lottery, they would be able to log on to the Web site and reserve their tickets. Mark Gajda, UAA assistant athletic director for ticket operations, said an Student online ticketGovernment ing system w o u I d n t replace current ticketing distribution but function as a supplement. Gajda said he hopes the online ticket distribution system will be available within the next two years., "We're not looking to do this tomorrow," Gajda said. The UAA is looking into online ticketing systems used by other universities, especially in the SEC conference, Gajda said. Gajda said the UAA has not looked at cost estimates for an online ticketing system. The idea for an online ticketing distribution site came from requests of UF sports fans. "It's not really a criticism," Gajda said. "It's simply a request for us to get better, and that's what we're looking to do." New-member activities are prohibited. ATO, from Page 1 he said. The fraternity faces no allegations of violence or alcohol violations, Orlando added. Alpha Tau Omega, known as ATO, is prohibited from all fraternity activities on or off campus until further notice, states a letter to Fletcher Rush, ATO president, from Chris Loschiavo, director of Student Judicial Affairs. This includes chapter meetings, social events, service projects, philanthropy projects and alumni events, Loschiavo wrote. Members are allowed to live in the house and eat meals there if they have a meal plan. However, the only new members who can be at the house for meals are those who have paid for meal plans, he wrote. All new-member activities, including initiation events, are prohibited. Ben Caswell, president of UF's Interfraternity Council, said the council would likely leave punishment up to UF's office of Student Judicial Affairs. Caswell declined to comment further. Wynn Smiley, chief executive officer for ATO's national office, said, "This has not been an issue that has plagued this chapter by any means of imagination." Smiley said ATO would conduct its own investigation and work closely with UP. It's too early to speculate about possible punishments, he said. "The allegations are certainly serious," Smiley said. "We have no tolerance for hazing, but at this point they're only allegations." Cars travel by the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity house on Southwest 13th Street on Wednesday afternoon.

New Jay-Z back to roots ADRIAN RUHI 0 AVENUE WRITER Jay-Z may have left the Brooklyn underworld more than a decade ago to establish himself as one of the most successful figures in the music industry, but that didn't stop him from revisiting his dark past on "American Gangster," his 10th studio album in 12 years. Inspired by the Ridley Scott film of the same name, Jay-Z weaves tales of a young drug dealer over '70s soul beats to mixed, but mostly positive, results. It's when "American Gangster" sticks to its theme that Jay-Z is at his best. The album's sequence follows a dope dealer's genesis ("Pray" and "American Dreamin"), his peak of success ("Party Life") and inevitable downfall ("Fallin"'). Unfortunately, songs like "Hello Brooklyn 2.0" and lead single "Blue Magic" share little musically or lyrically with the album's theme and dampen the overall concept. "Hello Brooklyn 2.0," featuring the grossly overrated Lil Wayne, is a sloppy and sparse ode to Jay-Z's hometown. "American Gangster" V mostly shines, though. The Nas-assisted "Success" is a gritty anthem chronicling the cocky climax of a crime lord, while the celebratory horn-driven "Roc Boys" is the funkiest Jay-Z single in years. The album may go over the heads of younger hip-hop fans, but longtime fans seeking a return to "Reasonable Doubt"-era Jay-Z will appreciate the mature themes and sheer musicality of. "American Gangster." Chuck/Larry gives few laughs After my first viewing of the trailer for "I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry," with its rampant homophobia and the sheer presence of Adam Sandler ("Punch Drunk Love" notwithstanding), I knew I was going to hate it and write a scathing review. Much to my surprise, the movie, which came out to rent or own Tuesday, was not as bad as I expected. But not surprisingly, it wasn't particularly good, either. "Chuck and Larry" tells the story of Larry, a widower who marries his best friend and fellow New York City firefighter, Chuck, in order to be able to transfer his pension to his kids if he dies in the line of duty. The two struggle with their homophobia as they try to fool everyone into thinking they're gay. What starts out as your typical story of feigning homosexuality for the sake of insurance fraud soon turns into a story of friendship and acceptance, albeit with as few laughs as possible. Adam Sandler as an "actor" hardly works in roles where he's not playing a degenerate man-child. Consequently, when playing ladies' man/ firefighter Chuck, he comes off like a punk kid who's pretending to be serious in front of the principal. Kevin James, on the other hand, fares better as Larry, having had loads of practice playing a fairly normal guy on his sitcom, "King of Queens." He comes far closer to being sympathetic and likeable than his counterpart. The worst part of "Chuck and Larry" is the lack of humor. Somehow, the small roles and cameos from other (mostly comedic) actors end up being funnier than the two stars themselves. When a David Spade cameo is funnier than the two stars of the entire movie, you're in trouble. tLr nuidck Ln Cafe GardensCaf6 Gardens has bo from campus since l quaint landmark estc with award winning dining is perfect for gatherin-g., Openin d music schedule call 37 NW 1st Ave ist a, TkiGolden Buddha ,-Where eating wells mea eating healthy-.Gainesvi best Chinese food.

* How do you just know? You know what I hate? When people (or more often, movie g characters) say, "You just know," when referring to significant others. I even had an older relative once tell me that they just knew "like you know about a good melon." But even that bewilders me -many a time I have cut open a not yet ripe cantaloupe. So how on earth do these people know? And for that matter, what is "knowing"? I do know this: People I graduated from high school with are married, I have engaged college friends and just about everyone wants to know if things are serious with my boyfriend and me. I also really hate the idea that girls still go to college in pursuit of a Mrs. degree, but the truth is, we're at an age (or approaching it) when thinking about marriage and moving in together and merging lives forever and always is not so crazy anymore. I'm truly shocked my pen is producing this romantic fluff. And yet I can't help but seriously consider moving in with myboyfriend upon graduation. Wher did it all get so serious? And how do you know when you're ready for that next step? Just a few months ago I publicly outed myself as a relationslip-phobe, and now this? In pursuit of answers, I did a very lame thing. I listed all the reasons I really; enjoy being with my boyfriend (read: I was bored in a lecture). So here's what I've gathered, and hopefully the list can serve as your own litmus test as well: I'd rather be together than apart. I'm happy 95 percent of the time.

Perhaps "knowing" is not so difficult. It's just a convergence of our internal compasses with our rationalizing selves, after all. Finding a good melon, however, I could still use advice on.

concerts Johnny Cash's former touring duo plays his hits tonight DAVID LOW 0 AVENUE WRITER Talking to Bob Wootton is almost like communicating with a ghost. His deep voice and slow country drawl are eerily similar to the legendary Johnny Cash. But Wootton, the guitarist for Cash from 1968 until Cash's retirement in 1997, is very much alive. He, along with original drummer W.S. Holland, is touring the world playing Cash songs under the name the Tennessee Three, which is playing at Common Grounds tonight. Wootton, bom and raised in the hills of Arkansas, began playing music when his father taught him how to play guitar. As Wootton progressed, he discovered his voice was lower than most children's around him, and '_ began emulating musicians with a lower register, such as Tennessee Ernie Ford and Ernest Tubb. His greatest breakthrough as a musician came when he was about 12, practicing on his back porch. "My mother called me in one day and said, 'You know, there's someone on the radio that sounds a little bit like you do," Wootton said. "And it was John doing 'I Walk the Line,' and I just fell in love with the song and have been a fan ever since." When he got older, he started a band, naturally playing "some of John's stuff." Wootton played bars, dubs and rodeos throughout the Midwest, which is just what he was doing when Cash happened to stop in Arkansas on tour in 1968. Cash's lead guitarist, Luther Perkins, had died recently, and the replacement guitarist had missed his flight to the show in Arkansas. "This girl I was with went to ask June [Carter] and said, 'I know somebody that can play John's songs if you want somebody to play for him tonight,'" Wootton said. "And John came off and handed me his guitar and told me to tune it. He told me what song he was going to Belii DAtice ClAsses Begin November 12-16 Ethnic Dance Fxpressians schooll or Belv Dance Plaza West 4000 Newberry Road D-2 Gaea Night FREE chips & SalSa ethNcdanceW es oiLs. om 352-384-9200.

I didn't ask what key it was in -I just kicked the song off, and it just floored him." At the time, Cash was seriously considering quitting or having to change his style because no one could play like Perkins, Wootton said. "But evidently, I did," he said. He joined the band, which SoetiE Cash called the Tennessee Three, standing at a seminal with time in Cash's Bob W( career when he Tennessee Three n was kicking his addiction to amphetamines. When' Cash married Carter, she would watch over him and flush any pills down the toilet if she found them, Wootton said. "She straightened him out enough," he said. Wootton not only witnessed Cash's redemption of character, but UF&ShandLs CAMPUS n g the rebirth of his career as well. Wootton joined the band just in time to play the string of prison shows, including San Quentin State Prison in Califoria. "The first prison I played with him after I came to work with him was the Tennessee State Prison, and it didn't seem like that big a deal," ~ he said. "But when 3 I feel like he's we went to San Quentin, they shut on the stage those big ol' iron e. gates behind you otton -it makes the ember hair stand up on 9m the back of your neck a little bit. You gotta think, 'Boy, what if they can't get the gate open?"' Wootton continued to record and perform with the band until Cash went into semi-retirement in 1997. When Cash died in 2003, the Tennessee Three had a new purpose. "So many people die," Wootton University of Fi;ta Departmentot Pediatrics said. "One of my favorites was Marty Roberts. You never hear of him anymore, and I didn't want that to happen to John." Wootton and Holland, the only two of the original Tennessee Three, now tour the world playing the songs they played with the Man in Black. Wootton said many people are amazed that his voice is so similar to Cash's. "We're both from Arkansas, we're both Cherokee Indian, and we just had this parallel life together -we're like brothers," he said. "But like I say, we just do what we did when we played for John. It's the same music." Wootton said he's flabbergasted by the response people have to the band, which is selling out shows almost everywhere it goes, he said. But Wootton doesn't take credit for the success or the cheers. "Sometimes I feel like he's standing on the stage with me," he said. rr aLI mH .Available at: Phillips Center Box Office Alachua County Youth Orchestra 1352 392-ARTS (800)995-ARTS Columbia High School Chorus University Box Office Eastside High School Chamber Singers Ticketmaste Outlets STOP10 Office, Gainesville Youth Chorus RK.

Professional recording can be expensive for local bands TRACI ROSENTHAL 0 AVENUE WRITER Recording and releasing albums is no longer just for bigwigs in the music industry. Gainesville bands are also heading to the studios in order to give fans souvenirs, to get their songs heard and of course, to make some extra money. But the cost of a recording session, master compact disc and the art and graphics that make it look legitimate come with a big price tag. At Skylab Studios, a recording studio that has been in Gainesville for about 16 years, it could cost a band more than $5,000 just to reserve studio time to record and use the equipment. Once the studio fee is paid for, CDs, which usually cost around $2 per disc, must be ordered. The average local band that records at Skylab will order anywhere from 500 to 1,000 CDs, said Gerry King, owner and chief engineer at Skylab Studios. "A band could have to sell 20,000 to 30,000 CDs just to make a profit," King said. about $1,000.

"When someone buys a CD, they are essentially paying us back for five CDs," Pedron said. But there are a lot of perks to a band having its own CD that matter more than the money. "I'm not too worried about making the money back," Stanford said. "It was a lot of fun to do, and now we have something to show people. It all comes back around."

22, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 8,2007 Full Circle Butler fo//ows in mentor's footsteps By PHIL KEGLER Alligator Staff Writer pkegler@alligator.org Their relationship has changed many times over. Coach and player. Co-workers. Friends. One spent 12 years as the UF women's basketball coach, stepping down in March 2002 with the most wins in program history. The other played on some of those teams that put the Gators on the map. Though their relationship is ever-changing, Carol Ross and Amanda Butler will always share a bond tied to UE. Rookies Together The pair both first arrived in Gainesville in 1990, Ross' first season as UF's coach and Butler's freshman year at point guard. Butler quickly impressed Ross with the way she carried herself. "You could tell immediately that she had an aura, a presence, a command," Ross said. "Had I not known. .that she was a freshman, I probably would've thought she was a senior captain." Butler would start at point guard for the next four years, making an immediate impact, finishing third in assists in the Southeastern Conference her freshman year. "You always hope your point guard is going to be an extension of your personality and your philosophy, and we are a lot alike," Ross said. "We expect good things to happen." The 5-foot-8 guard learned toughness from her coach, who stressed there was no justification for sitting out a game. "Iniuries were, to me, not a factor," Butler said. "I I was conscious and could still walk around, I didn't see any reason why I shouldn't be able to play." That mentality would be tested during her junior year, when she broke her nose in practice, just before a game against Florida State. The face mask Butler was supposed to wear did not arrive in time. She reluctantly agreed to Ross' recommendation that she sit the first half and see how the game progressed. "At halftime, I was walking to the locker room, and I was looking at her and she was looking at me," Butler said. "She goes, 'Well you ready to go in?' and I said, 'Well yeah."' The possibility of further injury didn't limit her aggressive style of play. "She took charges, she drove to the rim," Ross said. "She played the same fearless way she's always played." The Gators defeated the Seminoles, and four days later, Butler would become the first collegiate women's basketball player to wear the Bill Laimbeer-style face mask in a game against South Carolina. While her toughness was never in question, her future profession wasn't as easily determined. Butler considered becoming a physical therapist or even possibly attending law school. Ross knew differently. "I could always tell which ones were going to coach before they could," Ross said. "And she goes, 'No, no, I'm going to be a physical therapist,' and I said, 'No, you'll be a coach.'" "You could tell immediately that she had an aura, a presence, a command." Carol Ross UF women's basketball coach Her interactions with her teammates generated nothing but mutual respect. "She had a magnetic personality -her teammates gravitated to her," Ross said. "She had their respect not by what she said but by example." That leadership capability paid off as Butler brought out the best in her teammates. It was under her floor leadership that the Gators made the NCAA Tournament in 1993 and 1994, the program's first-ever appearances. "She could get other people to do what she needed them to do," Ross said. "That's what coaching is. If you can do that as a teammate, as a player, with your peers, you've got head coach written all over you. It's just when and where." Quick Transition When Butler graduated, Ross hired her as an assistant coach. It was a rare occurrence for Ross, who couldn't recall another time she had ever asked a player to immediately join her staff. "I didn't want to hire my own players because then you had to pick and choose, and I felt like they would grow if they went away," Ross said. "She was just so good and so talented, and I wanted her to be in the coaching profession. I thought she had a great gift. I thought it would be a win-win. I knew she would help us, and I thought we could SEE WHOOPS, PAGE 24 New UF women's basketball coach Amanda Butler introduces her team during the Gators' Fan Appreciation Day on Oct. 21 in the O'Dome.

S Nports THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 2007 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org UF revisits Moss' block By MIKE MCCALL Alligator Staff Writer mmccalla-ligator.org Of all the great plays that led to UF's national championship win against No. 1 Ohio State last year, the greatest came two months before that game was even played. Before defensive end Jarvis Moss' fingers were covered in championship rings, they made one of the most critical plays in Gators history. In UP's final regu7 lar-season Southeastern Conference game, Moss blocked South Carolina Football kicker Ryan Succop's 48yard field goal attempt as time expired to seal a 17-16 win and send the Gators toward Glendale. "That was the biggest play," said defensive end Derrick Harvey, who was clearing space for Moss to jump on the final play. "That's what got us to the national championship." What made the feat evenmore improbable was that the Gators had aireadyblocked two kicks in the game. Moss had rejected a fourth-quarter extra point, and earlier Ray McDonald had got a hand on a third-quarter attempt from 47 yards. "I had never had a kick blocked before that game, so that was a toughthing," Succop said. "Jarvis Moss just made a heck of a play. There's not too much you can do about that." Alligato Had Succop's kick been good, theAiltrFi Gators still would have traveled to the SEC Former UF defensive end Jarvis Moss straddles former Ohio State quarte SEE FOOTBALL, PAGE 24 Troy Smith after a sack during the Gators' 41-14 national championship M UF FOOTBALL Tebow semi-f inalist for Maxwell Award By-BRYAN JONES Alligator Staff Writer bjones@alligator.org UF quarterback Tim Tebow was one of 15 players selected as a semi-finalist for the Maxwell Award, the advisory committee for the award announced Wednesday. The Maxwell -Award is presented annually to the nation's top college football player. Tebow has thrown for 21 touchdowns and rushed for 14 so far this season, and he. leads the nation in passing efficiency and the Southeastern Conference in total offense. With his latest rushing dash, the sophomore tied a school record for rushing touchdowns in a season and broke the SEC record for touchdown runs by a quarterback in a single season. "Off the top of my head, he's as good as I've had." Urban Meyer UF football coach BEST EVER?: Coach Urban Meyer has credited return man Brandon James as the main reason for a couple of the Gators' wins this season. Wednesday, rback in. he said James was likely the best kick returner he has ever coached. "I'd hate to have someone give me a call and say, 'Coach, I thought I was the best one,"' Meyer said. "Off the t9p of my head, he's as good as I've had." James is averaging 20.7 yards per punt return this season with one touchdown. While he has yet to score on a kickoff return this season, he is averaging 29.4 yards per return and consistently give the Gators great field position. "He's a guy that has a lot of ability back there," Meyer said. "I spend more time with the rules on the guys blocking for him than the guy catching it." Gators blank UK, advance to face LSU By KARL HYPPOLITE Alligator Writer Entering the opening round of the Southeastern Conference tournament, forward Ashlee Elliott said the Gators were seeking to avenge their loss to Kentucky in last year's tournament title game. UF (14-4-2, 10-4 SEC) got its payback Wednesday. On a cold night in Orange Beach, Ala., the Gators put the heat on the Wildcats (10-7-3, 4-7-1 SEC) sending them back to Lexington with a 4-0 loss and only faint hopes of an NCAA tournament berth. The Gators will now advance to face LSU on Friday night at 8:30. UFburied Kentucky early, netting three of four goals in the opening half. Forward Stacy Bishop scored the Burleigh match's first goal in the eighth minute offqa Karly Findorff assist. "It was really important," said Coach Becky Burleigh of scoring the first goal. "Every other game we've played against Kentucky has been a struggle, so for us to go in there and get an early goal set a great tone. "Kentucky generally has a very strong defense, and for us to come in and play that well is great." The Gators defense held strong, recording its 13th shutout of the season and ninth in 10 matches. UF outshot the Wildcats 11-0 in the half and kept them from establishing a rhythm on offense. The defensive dominance continued, as the Wildcats were limited to just one shot in the second half. "I thought our team did a good job of playing with confidence," Burleigh said. "We played strong, aggressive defense, and we were able to keep them from getting the ball in position to score the ball.

24, ALLIGATOR E THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 8,2007 Ross: Expect Gators in Final Four rW HOOPS, from page 22 help her." Butler remains thankful for that first opportunity. "There's no question that she has been the most prevalent influence on my coaching career," she said. "Besides me playing for her, she gave me my first opportunity. That's something I think you never take lightly professionally --someone who takes a chance on you, and she did that with me. She opened the door to coaching for me." Butler spent two seasons on staff, then left to become an assistant coach at Austin Peay State for four years. A six-year stint followed at North Carolina-Charlotte. "(Ross) put UF as a women's basketball program on the map." Amanda Butler U F women's basketball coach After two years as an assistant coach and two years as associate head coach, Butler earned the top job in 2005 when previous head coach Katie Meier left. In her first season at the helm, she led the 49ers to a share of the Atlantic-10 regular-season title and a berth in the Women's National Invitation Tournament. She was named A-10 Coach of the Year. A second WNIT berth followed the next season. Butler and Ross stayed in close contact throughout the years, as Butler often turned to her former coach for advice. "She's just rarely wrong," Butler said. "When someone's rarely wrong, you need to keep going back to the well to get those answers., qr. Then, this past April an offer came that Butler could have never imagined. "I realized as I'm sitting in (UF Athletics Director) Jeremy (Foley's) office that I was going to be the next coach here," she said. Reunited Again Now Butler's back in the town where she got her start as a player, and she brought back -if only for a moment -the coach who gave her the opportunity. Ross came to Gainesville the last weekend in October as a team consultant to spend a few days observing practice and offer tips to both coaches and players. The new coach enjoyed introducing her players to her old coach and mentor. "She put UF as a women's basketball program on the map," Butler said. "It's im portant for them to know. I think that having a sense of history is very important." Ross expects similar success during Butler's tenure, since her former player never fears a challenge, whether it's playing with a broken nose or winning a recruit. "It's not a surprise that in our first trip to the NCAA tournament that she would be in a uniform," Ross said. "It won't be a surprise to me when this team gets to a Final Four at some point and she's going to be the head coach in charge. She's not scared of what has not been done." Butler knows she wouldn't be the person and coach she is today without Ross' guidance. "Her success is undeniable," Butler said. "I just feel very fortunate to have her as a person in my life, professionally as a resource and personally as a friend." Now Ross gets to sit back and watch as her former player works to bring her alma mater back to relevancy. "When you coach, you always want your players to dream big and then to be able to live it," Ross said. "To sit and watch knowing that she's the head coach at UF, I still see an 18-year-old kid who loved every moment of being a Florida Gator. She knew what it meant to have Florida strapped across her chest competing. She's living her dream." Win validates coach's early tenure FOOTBALL, from page 23 championship game, but any hopes of a national title would have been dashed. "That was a great day in Florida football history," Coach Urban Meyer said. "It propelled us to Glendale, Arizona. The SEC East was already won, but that got us a chance to keep going on the national level." A loss to former UF coach Steve Spurrier would have altered the perception of Meyer as well. Meyer was hailed as one of the top college football coaches after he finished his second year in Gainesville with a perfect home record and a national title -two things that would never have happened without the block. Succop had only missed one kick prior to the game, a 51-yarder that hit the upright in the Gamecocks' second game of the year. When the reliable kicker lined up for his attempt in The Swamp, the entire stadium was on edge, except for a few players. "We already knew he was going to block it," Harvey said. "We just had to get a push, and he was going to get up and block it. .That's what first-round picks do." Succop was convinced his kick was headed through the uprights until Footall IMoss' left hand got in the way. "When I hit it, it felt great," Succop said. "I was just real excited because I thought it was going in, and when he got a finger on it, it was pretty disappointing."UF quarterback Tim Tebow hopes the kick was heading awry anyway, but he's fully appreciative of Moss' impact. "Hopefully it would've gone wide left, but that was a pretty good field-goal kicker, so he might've made it," Tebow said. "The season would've been a lot different." UF tops SEC in All-Conference nods SOCCER, from page 23 goal in the 26th minute on a shot assisted by Shana Hudson, and Bishop rounded out the first-half scoring, con'necting on her ninth goal of the season in the 37th minute from an assist by Elliott. Forward Bianca Gibbs added the final score in the 90th minute for good measure. Despite dominating Kentucky, Burleigh downplayed revenge as a factor in the win. "I think our players are.bigger than that," she said. "Our goal is winning games, and for us it's all about continuing our momentum entering the NCAA tournament." GATORS HONORED: Two months ago, it seemed unlikely UF would be heavily represented on the All-SEC teams. But with UF now riding high on a ten-game winning streak, UF led the SEC with five all-conference players. Defender Lauren Hyde and forwards Bishop and Elliott were named to the All-SEC First Team. Midfielders Ameera Abdullah and Hudson were named to the second squad. Findorff was named to the SEC Bishop All-Freshman Team. A noteworthy omission from the All-Conference teams is forward Ashley Harris. The senior was tied with Bishop and Hudson for a UF-best seven goals at the end of the regular season.
