"Because of our budget challenges, we've been look-

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.

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
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-
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
"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.
"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
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
One activity involves popping a
balloon filled with glow-in-the-dark
liquid to demonstrate the germ-
spreading power of a sneeze, Gums
"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
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
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
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,
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,"
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-
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
"I want to impact the community
and members as positively as I can,"
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
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

Accusations are no
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
First Sen. John Kerry
came. Then it was
Then Dr. Jack Kevorkian
was promised to us. Now

Attorney General Alberto
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
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.

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
email@example.com 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
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
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.
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
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'

Jim Wright, executive director

Tea party celebrates 'Alice'

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-

A silent auction of 12 posters with illustra-

through 1999 was held to benefit the Baldwin
Library of Historical Children's Literature at
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

"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.

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
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-
It's when "American Gangster"
sticks to its theme that Jay-Z is at his
The album's sequence follows a
dope dealer's genesis ("Pray" and
"American Dreamin'"), his peak of
success ("Party Life") and inevitable
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
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.
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-
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
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
I'm happy 95 percent of the

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.
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
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
"But evidently, I did," he said.
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-
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
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.

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
"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
Wootton said many people are
amazed that his voice is so similar
"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
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
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
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
"A band could have to sell 20,000
to 30,000 CDs just to make a profit,"
King said. about $1,000.

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."

BOtler follows in
By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
Their relationship has changed many times
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.
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
"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
"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
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
"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-
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
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."
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."
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

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
In UF's final -regu- i",- '
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- -.
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 .'*'

about that."Fe Photo

Tebow has thrown for 21 touch-

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-
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."
to face LSU
By KARL HYPPOLITE
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
- 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-
The Gators will now advance to face
LSU on Friday night
early, netting three of
II four goals in the open-
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
"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.

Peay State for four years.
A six-year stint followed at North.
"(Ross) put UF as a women's bas-

/ 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
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.
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-
"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'
"Her success is undeniable," Butler
said. "I just feel very fortunate to have her
