UF 51 31 SOUTH CAROLINA


Tebow back in



Heisman hunt


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

The Tim Tebow show may
soon make its way to New
York.
The sophomore quarter-
back's Heisman Trophy can-
didacy is back on track after
a ridiculous seven-touchdown
performance Saturday night at
South Carolina in the Gators'
51-31 dismantling of the
Gamecocks.
In what has been an upset-
filled college football season,
even the sharpest critics are be-
ing forced to consider Tebow as
a true contender for the award
presented each December in
New York.
Even his coach is finally
chiming in.
"This was a Heisman perfor-
mance," UF coach Urban Meyer


said during the postgame press
conference. "I normally don't
say stuff like that. Five touch-
downs rushing? Five touch-
downs rushing? That's unbe-
lievable. That's a pretty good
day's work. I
might buy him
a sandwich
on the way
home."

Dozens of flags waved in the breeze
over Kanapaha Veterans Memorial Park on
Saturday, representing the United States and all
the branches of the armed forces.
The Alachua County annual Veterans Day
Ceremony honored veterans of the armed
forces through speeches, poetry and music.
The event was put on by the Alachua
County Veterans Memorial Committee and the
Malcolm Randall VA Memorial Center.
A special tribute was given to veterans of
World War II, Operation Enduring Freedom
and Operation Iraqi Freedom.
The two groups showed the "greatest

Fraternity faces charges


* ALPHA TAU OMEGA WAS
ACCUSED OF HAZING.

By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

UF is moving forward with haz-
ing charges against a UF fraternity
following an anonymous tip to UF's
office of Student Judicial Affairs.
UF's chapter of Alpha Tau
Omega Fraternity was accused of
inflicting sleep deprivation and ser-
vitude on its new members, stated
a letter from Chris Loschiavo, di-
rector of Student Judicial Affairs, to
Fletcher Rush, president of Alpha
Tau Omega.
Loschiavo wrote that Rush must
schedule a meeting with him to
discuss the fraternity's rights and

responsibilities by Sunday.
At the meeting, Loschiavo will
provide more details of the allega-
tions, he wrote.
Members of the fraternity,
known as ATO, are not allowed
to participate in any events until
further notice. This
Judicial includes chapter meet-
Affairs ings, social events,
philanthropy events
and initiation.
UF's Student Conduct Code
states that hazing involves any
attempts to cause physical injury,
emotional stress, humiliation or
academic interference to a student
to gain affiliation with a student
group.
The code also states that consent
of victims or optional participation
in hazing rituals do not count as le-
gitimate defenses of the charges.

ACADEMICS

UF ranks high for participation in international studies


By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org
The Gator Nation has gone global, and it
hasn't gone unnoticed.
UF ranked in the top 20 schools for study-
abroad participation and international student
attendance, the Institute of International
Education announced Monday.
Records from the institute stated there were
3,921 international students at UF in the 2006-


2007 academic year, which put UF at 17th na-
tionwide for international student attendance.
. The University of Southern California was
No. 1.
Data on short-term study-abroad participa-
tion from 2005-2006 ranked UF fifth with 1,329
students traveling that year.
However, UF will not receive any extra
funding or awards with the rankings, said
Dennis Jett, dean of UF's International Center.
It will only get recognition, and that's good
enough for The Gator Nation, Jett said.


Biker parade raises money


for Red Cross, veterans


"We have to attract the
best minds from wherever
they are if we're going to
-- compete in a global econ-
omy," he said. "We can't
-' be a world-class institution
unless we are out in the
world."
Jett Gaining a broader per-
spective on the world is an
essential part of higher education, he said.
Learning goes beyond the classroom or


at least it should, he added. Jett said student
participation in international programs started
to pick up after Sept. 11.
He said he'd still like to see an increase in
involvement.
When students come to UF as freshmen,
about 70 percent say studying abroad is a ma-
jor goal, but only 5 percent follow through.
At Ustler Hall at 2 p.m. today, the center
will give a $1,000 award to one faculty mem-
ber who has made outstanding international
achievements in each of UF's colleges.


* THE EVENT RAISED ABOUT
$74,000.

By CASEY BROOKE LAWSON
Alligator Contributing Writer
More than 1,500 motorcycles clad in
chrome, rubber and leather lined up in
rows in an SFCC parking lot Sunday for
the Seventh Annual Bikers on Parade
for the USA.
They created a rainbow with hues
including lime green and black cherry.
The 17-mile parade, which was held
in honor of Veterans Day, wound its
way from SFCC to the Alachua County
Fairgrounds.
The parade raised about $74,000,
which will benefit the North Central
Florida Chapter of the American Red
Cross, as well as local veterans causes,
said Ralph Cameron, the parade's or-


ganizer.
The event raised money through do-
nations, as well as rider and passenger
fees for those who participated in the
parade. Bikers on Parade was created
as a reaction to Sept. 11.
It is an event for people to gather
and celebrate the spirit and pride of
America and to raise
Santa Fe awareness for fire per-
Community sonnel, law enforce-
A0., .,, ment and veterans,
Cameron said.
A pre-parade event included a
speech from state Rep. Larry Cretul, a
Republican.
"This event allows us to show those
who fight for our freedom and our
safety the support and respect they de-
serve," Cretul said. "We must continue
to support the veterans of today, and
we must remember those who did not
return to be celebrated as veterans."

Market sells unique items


By HILARY LEHMAN
Alligator Writer

Students in the market for an eyelash, a storm-
trooper costume or a faux boyfriend may not need
to look further than their computers.
All are available on the Facebook Marketplace
in the UF network.
. Marketplace, Facebook's "self-service applica-
tion for listing items for sale, housing for rent, jobs
available, and so on," allows users to post adver-
tisements for free and list ads on their networks.
While most students use Marketplace for its in-
tended purpose more than 4,000 items are listed
for sale at UF some post advertisements for less
traditional items than furniture and books.
Beatriz Alemar, a UF marketing senior, created
a listing in the "Other" section, looking for a gym
buddy to attend Southwest Recreation Center
with her five nights a week for two hours a night.
Alemar only received two responses, neither
of which worked out. She said she thinks if her
requirements had been more flexible, she would
have gotten more responses.
Unlike Alemar, other students create listings
for items without expecting responses.
Derek Butts, a UF freshman, created a listing
advertising his services as a "Personal Singing
Friend."


For $15, Butts will sing any song except for
"that new Britney Spears song," the ad stated.
Butts said he and some friends were trying to
think of something "you wouldn't normally see
on a Faceboook listing."
Although his ad wasn't serious and received
no response, Butts said he would consider being a
personal singing buddy if it paid well.
Corey Squires, a UF anthropology junior,
created a listing in the "For Sale" section of
Marketplace, titled "$5 my virginity."
"From my experiment, I've learned
that virginity is not very highly evalu-
ated at the University of Florida."
Corey Squires
UF anthropology junior

Squires said he made the ad out of boredom as
a joke. Squires has received almost no feedback to
the ad except for a $1 offer from a male friend.
"From my experiment, I've learned that virgin-
ity is not very highly evaluated at the University of
Florida," he said.
Squires said he's not a virgin; however, he said
he's thankful for the lack of serious response.
"It would have been an awkward situation,"
he said.


UF student requests


donations for city seat


By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Alligator Writer
dculclasure@alligator.org

In an effort to be elected to the
Gainesville City Commission,
former Student Senate President
Robert Agrusa is asking fellow
students and Gainesville residents
for help in his new fundraising
strategy.
Agrusa, a UF political science
senior who is running for the
commission's At-Large District 2
seat, is asking supporters to donate
$20 to help pay for campaign ma-
terials such as bumper stickers and
signs, he said.
The campaign, which was re-
leased Wednesday, is called the "20


to Win" strategy.
The campaign will run for
about a month.
The election for Agrusa's pro-
spective seat is Jan. 29.
Agrusa said he wanted to use a
grassroots approach.
Local By only asking
News for $20, more people
can be involved in
his campaign, he said. Agrusa did
not give a specific fundraising goal
but said he wants to reach as many
people as possible.
"It's a minimal amount for
somebody to donate to a cam-
paign, but it can go so far," Agrusa
said.
Donations can be made on his
Web site, www.voteagrusa08.com.

For Sale

Facebook Marketplace

offers up the goods
W e realized the crazy things people will do and
sell for money this weekend after perusing UF's
Facebook Marketplace listings.
In a matter of seconds, we found listings offering a
"Grafic Artist," UF vs. FSU football tickets for more than
$100 a piece (not to mention tickets for games that have al-
ready been played), countless copies of the textbook used
for calculus and inquiries for stud dogs.
So we wondered, what else could be for sale? After list-'
ing all of our desk chairs that have missing wheels and the
key to our editor's office (shh, don't tell her), we tried to
figure out what UF and Gainesville celebs might offer up
on the Marketplace.
Everyone's favorite UF president, Bernie Machen,
would have a lovely toupee up for sale. It's made from
the finest hair available and matches his natural hair
color perfectly, but he decided to sell it after too many
people in Tigert Hall didn't recognize him in the wig.
Plus, the Marketplace description said he didn't like that it
wouldn't stay on his head when he rode his Harley.
Men's basketball coach Billy Donovan saw Urban
Meyer's Marketplace listing for a $1-million dinner and
didn't want to be left out. But since he's won twice as
many national championships, a night at the 'Donovan
residence would go for a cool $2 million.
But hey, that's not so bad when you consider the fact
that you would get to eat out of a crystal half-basketball,
use one of Joakim Noah's old jerseys as a napkin (both of
which you'd get to keep) and prank call athletic director
Jeremy Foley.
Just don't try to give Billy any coaching advice, or
you'll get stuck washing all the dishes.
University Police Department could offer up the Taser
used on UF student Andrew Meyer earlier this semester at
a forum with Sen. John Kerry. We bet it would fetch a few
hundred bucks. The money could go toward Taser-use ed-
ucation. Of course, UPD would need to completely disarm
it so it could never Taser Meyer, or anyone else, again.
We wouldn't be surprised if Student Body President
Ryan Moseley were selling his own brand of hair prod-
ucts, Slick Mo's. It's a complete line of conditioners, hair
sprays, gels, mousses, pomades, waxes and, oh yeah,
shampoo.
And if you buy three or more products, you get a
handy styling guide to teach you how to replicate his sig-
nature style the Spike. Proceeds from the sales would
go toward Robert Agrusa's campaign for a seat on the
Gainesville City Commission.
Sister Hazel, a local band turned nationally famous
(and internationally the band has a Wikipedia article
in English, French and German, surprisingly), recently an-
nounced it would start its "12 Days of Christmas" tour in
Gainesville.
While the members didn't list their tickets in the
Facebook market, we wouldn't be surprised to see it list
12 drummers drumming, 11 singers singing, 10 guitar-
ists strumming, nine Hazelnuts, eight EP tracks, seven
Christmas covers, six studio albums, five harmonicas, four
movie soundtracks, three Blues Traveler comparisons, two
top-10 singles and a platinum-certified album.

tiny. Miniature book sales are at all-time lows. I sold all
my stock in thimbles years ago. Mini-Me hasn't had a
good role since Austin Powers.
If you're looking to discover that big is in, look no fur-
ther than your local parking lot.
It's difficult to comprehend somebody buying a large car
to drive in a city, but people do it every day. This confounds
me. Driving a large car on a day-to-day basis is like writing
with a broken pencil pointless.
Especially in Florida. We don't have hills to contend
with, we don't drive to work in the snow, and most of our
roads are actually paved.
I'd assume that people buying large SUVs in our lovely
state are concerned by the elderly population. I understand
their anxieties because old people are truly dangerous.
Those hooligans drive at speeds of up to 40 mph! Our
highways can't be considered safe with so many snowbirds
recklessly leaving turn signals on for 10 to 15 minutes at a
time.
But seriously, why haven't we challenged our big-car
culture? Because these monstrosities are still considered
sexy. Marketers use images of power and sexuality to sell
these beasts, and the public is receptive standing googly-
eyed in line with their tongues dripping saliva, waiting to
drop $50,000 on what is essentially metal and plastic.
Think about the typical buyer of, say, a Cadillac Escalade.
Having been made fun of his whole life for being puny, the
subject uses a large car to fool potential mates into thinking
he's bigger.
This is clearly the wrong approach. Getting into some-
thing large makes you pale in comparison. If you want
to look smarter, you don't pick an intellectual fight with
Stephen Hawking.
And who buys large trucks when they aren't involved

lack of power in the real world.
Commercials selling trucks are al-
ways over-hyped in the sense that
no man has such a preposterous
amount of testosterone.
They advertise with prepos-


Kyle Cox terone.
Ky CI acknowledge people who
letters@alligator.org need a large car to tow a boat or
cargo. People with high expend-
able incomes buy large things that need to be moved. But
the argument for smaller cars isn't about wealth. It's about
absurdity. A woman who drives her kids to soccer, drives to
the mall and drives back to pick up the kids doesn't need a
car powerful enough to tow a Boeing.
Doesn't buying a large car also speak volumes about
your driving ability? "I comb my hair, eat and talk on the
phone while driving. I'd better buy a. tank." Is there any
other reason the parents on the TV show "My Super Sweet
16" buy their little brats SUVs?
Some people say, "I just feel safer in a large car." Haven't
you ever played "Mario Kart"? The larger drivers take
forever to start and stop their Karts because of momentum
and weight. This means it's hard to avoid something com-
ing straight at you.
Maybe we're catching on to our own stupidity. Smart

Smart Car in America in early 2008. The car is so small it
can park sideways in a parallel spot, but it's designed to

Letters to the 'E-.
Accent speech a waste of student money
As an alumnus of UF and the Alligator, I
was disappointed to learn $40,000 of student
money would be going to pay former U.S.
Attorney General Alberto Gonzales to speak
at UF. What on Earth could he have to share
with students? What valuable insights will
he offer, given how little he remembers of his
own tenure?
Why not have Britney Spears offer parent-
ing tips? Or Vice President Dick Cheney hold
a forum on gun safety? Forty thousand dollars
is worth almost 6,000 hours of minimum-
wage labor. I think there are better uses for
those funds.
Paul Beard
Seattle resident

Gonzales not a controversial speaker
Why are we paying $40,000 to hear Alberto
Gonzales speak? Accent claims it is bringing
another "controversial speaker" like Janet


Reno. Reno was controversial because of
policy in the Elian Gonzalez and Waco raids.
Alberto Gonzales is controversial because of
his alleged illegal actions.
When Reno left her spot at the Department
of Justice, she had Democratic defenders.
When Gonzales left his post, he had no
Republican defenders. To be controversial,
there needs to be more than one side. In the
case of Gonzales, there is almost unanimity in
the opinion of his incompetence.
This will be the first speech by Gonzales
since he resigned. Why? Because no one, not
even far-right Republicans, thinks he is worth
listening to. Accent needs to do more research
and bring controversial speakers instead of
the laughingstock of the political and legal
communities.

Too much air conditioning wastes energy
I'll admit it, being bombarded with Ford
hybrid commercials, Al Gore cameos and
plugs for compact fluorescent lightbulbs while
watching NBC this week really got me in a
"green" state of mind.
So you can no doubt imagine the disap-
pointment I felt Friday when I walked into the
icebox that was the McCarty Hall auditorium.
Why was it so cold? Not because the doors
were open on a chilly fall day, but because
the air conditioner was cranking out a relative
haze of frost.
I The university continues to boast its car-
bon-neutrality pledge and flaunt gimmicky
devices (Check out those waterless toilets
in Library West. Great idea.). But until UF
vigilantly follows obvious energy-conserving
procedures, it's all just a bunch of hot air, more
of which we certainly don't need.

Phones prevent us from communicating
Avery noticeable trend in campus life is the
overwhelming presence of students attached
to their cell phones or encapsulated by the ear-
buds of their iPods. Not only does this trend
essentially shut us off from the world that is
within our gaze, but it nearly destroys any at-
tempts one student may have at communicat-
ing with another.
This has devastating effects on campus cul-
ture, which is inextricably linked to the com-
munication of ideas outside of our own heads
and our own circles of friends..Limiting our
use of such devices will prevent us from pre-
maturely closing ourselves off to other people,
conversations, perceptions and experiences
that might otherwise have a worthwhile effect
on us. Let's put our phones in our pockets and
set them on silent something more interest-
ing might be going on.

Cloth bags a more environmental, more practical choice


As I waited in line for the
bagger to pack my grocer-
ies, I noticed he was plac-
ing just two items in each bag.
With only 10 items, I walked out
of the store with five bags. I knew
something was wrong.
I realized those five bags were
a total waste, so I considered what
to do about it. I could write to the
manager and tell him I was upset
about the wastefulness of his em-
ployees. I could tell the baggers
on my next shopping trip about
proper bagging techniques.
Or I could do something proac-
tive that I could repeat at all stores:
Bring my own cloth bags!

Let's con-
sider plastic-


Spe'akingOut bag produc-
Speaking Out tion. Plastic
shopping
bags are made from polyethylene,
which comes from petroleum.
Petroleum is a fossil fuel.
We are having environmental
issues with fossil fuels and the
fact that they produce carbon. The
fewer bags used, the fewer bags
produced, the less petroleum used
to make bags and the less carbon
released in the atmosphere.
Americans use about 380 bil-
lion plastic bags a year, according
to the Environmental Protection


Agency. It takes about 1.6 billion
gallons of petroleum to produce-
that many bags, according to
FastCompany.com. Then, if they
aren't recycled, think of the landfill
space they take up. Plus, polyeth-
ylene takes about 1,000 years to
break down.
If you don't do it for the pe-
troleum, do it for the sea turtles.
Every year, thousands of sea
turtles, whales and other marine
animals die from eating plastic
bags. Sea turtles eat the plastic
bags because they think the bags
are jellyfish, a source of food.
The bag goes into its stomach,
but the animal doesn't digest it.

The sea turtle doesn't think it is
hungry because it has the plastic
bag telling it that it's full, so it dies
of starvation.
The simple solution is to use
cloth bags when shopping. Just
keep them in your car, so when-
ever you go to the store, you'll
have them.
Cloth bags hold more than
plastic bags, and they are sturdier.
As an added bonus, when walking
to your apartment or dorm, you
would have just two cloth bags
instead of 10 plastic bags that's
just one for each shoulder.
Tell your friends, design your
own bag, and show your own


style. You can buy cloth bags from
craft stores, grocery stores (Publix
sells a "green bag," which is very
nice) or from an environmental or-
ganization you want to support.
Another tip: If you go on an im-
promptu shopping trip and only
buy one or two items, don't use a
bag. Carry them without one.
So my challenge to you is to
reduce the number of plastic bags
you use to zero. There is no need
for us to use plastic bags when
there are sea turtles and fossil fuels
to think about.

Air Force ROTC program earns first No. i ranking


* THE PROGRAM IS 65
YEARS OLD.

By ILEANA MORALES
Alligator Writer
imorales@alligator.org

Right before Veterans Day
weekend, the UF Air Force ROTC
was awarded a trophy for being
the top medium-sized unit in the
United States.
In its 65 years of existence, this
is the first time the UF program has
been ranked No. 1.
Maj. Jim Bodnar, associate pro-
fessor of aerospace studies, said the
timing of the news was appropriate
for future veterans.
"The fact that the country sets
aside a day for those serving and
those who have served in the past
is an honor," Bodnar said. "The

relationship between the two and
the timing of the two couldn't be.
better."
The unit did not officially par-
ticipate in any Veterans Day activi-
ties but celebrated the day privately
with friends and family, he said.
Bodnar said with steady hard
work, UF's program will have a
fair chance to receive high rankings
every year.
"We don't work specifically
toward that goal, but we know we
want to be one of best detachments
in the country," Bodnar said.
The cadets are the key to the
program's success, Bodnar said.
Maureen Hartney, a 21-year-old
UF student who was named the Air
Force Association's Outstanding
Cadet of the Year, agreed.
"It's supposed to be a cadet-run
program," Hartney said. "We are


allowed to run the program, which
gives us a better chance to show our
leadership."
Hartney said receiving the news
of the program's awards just before
Veterans Day was nice, but it's not
the awards that are important.
"We're trying to
On do our best every day
Campus and so are the veter-
ans who are serving
now and who have served in the
past," she said.
Bodnar said this year's achieve-
ments were also marked by the ini-
tiative of upper-class cadets.
"We would be sunk without
them taking charge and feeling the
responsibility to take charge and do
their best," he said.
Col. Hubert "Griff" Griffin
added that ROTC cadets are all
volunteers.


Bodnar said the program lead-
ers really care for the cadets, who
will be veterans one day.
"When I go back into the Air
Force, I'm going to be working with
some of these folks," Bodnar said.
"I want to make sure they know
what they're doing."
Bodnar said UF's program is
functioning "above and beyond"
other Air Force detachments in the
Southeast.
Retention efforts are important
to the program, he said.
Bodnar said cadets are provided
with guest speakers, special trips
and community service projects.
In the past, Korean War and
World War II veterans have come to
UF as guest speakers for cadets.
Bodnar said there are other at-
tractive aspects of the program that
allow for bonding among cadets.


About two weeks ago as part of
a trip with ROTC, 20 cadets sat with
astronauts' families in the viewing
area for a space shuttle launch.
UF's Air Force ROTC also par-
ticipated in the homecoming pa-
rade for the first time this year with
a float builtby cadets.
They invited local high school
ROTC cadets to march with them
so they could show the younger ca-
dets where they could be after high
school, Bodnar said.
He said the morning before the
parade, UF cadets gave 100 high-
school cadets a tour of the campus
and talked to them about the differ-
ences between ROTC in college and
high school.
"Every single person we
talked with afterwards, they were
psyched," Bodnar said. "They
thought it was the greatest thing."

OFF THE AVENUE

Art show draws 100,000


By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org

Downtown Gainesville transformed
into a bustling bazaar of white tents
Saturday and Sunday.
The 26th annual Downtown Festival
& Art Show attracted more than 100,000
people, who browsed an eclectic selection
of art including paintings, quilts and fork-
and-spoon mobiles.
More than 700 artists vied for the 250
available spaces in the show, said director
Linda Piper, of the City of Gainesville's
Department of Parks, Recreation and
Cultural Affairs.
Each artist was chosen and scored by a
team of jurors in June, she said.
Festival judges gave out more than
$14,000 in prizes to the participating art-
ists using the money artists paid to register
booths.
The $2,000 prize for best in show this
year went to Garry Seidel, of Davie, and
his photography.
"I always have a large following, but
that's an added bonus,"-he said.
Seidel has been attending the festival
on and off for 15 years, he said, but has
never won its best-in-show award before.
His favorite piece this year was a black-
and-white photograph of a man walking
past a neon graffiti-covered Berlin Wall,
he said.
Aften Detwiler, a UF graduate student,
said looking at photography is her favorite
part of the show, though this year she only
bought curly fries.


Detwiler said this was her third year
coming to the show, and she attended
both days.
Piper said she credited the show's good
turnout this year to the beautiful weather
and an evening football game Saturday.
Chino Leong, owner of The Gelato
Company downtown, said the festival
kept the store busy and increased busi-
ness.
"The art festival probably doubles or
triples it," he said.
Piper said the show brings tourism to
Gainesville, filling the streets and local
hotels.
"This show is nationally recog-
nized as one of the top 10 art
shows in the country."
Linda Piper
Department of Parks, Recreation and
Cultural Affairs

"This show is nationally recognized as
one of the top 10 art shows in the country,"
she said.
The festival pays for itself every year,
Piper said. Any extra profit goes toward
the next year's advertising.
Gainesville artist Eleanor Blair based
this year's advertising campaign, includ-
ing a poster and $15 T-shirt, on a painting
of the Thomas Center fountain.
"I just happened to have my camera
with me. It was beautiful, perfect light.
I decided it would be fun to paint," said
Blair, who lives near the Thomas Center.


UF group aims to educate community by sharing garden


* THE GARDEN CONTAINS
MEDICINAL, EDIBLE PLANTS.

By STEVEN WEINER
Alligator Writer

For the last year and a half, the
UF Ethnoecology Society has been
turning a small plot of land on cam-
pus into a garden of edible plants,
medicinal herbs and other exotic
vegetation from around the world.
The garden is home to bean
sprouts that are edible right off the
vine, fresh basil, Mesoamerican sun-
flowers, cucumbers and more.
Although the garden, located
down a dirt trail behind UF's Bat
House, has mostly been used for the
education of society members, the
group now wants to share it with
others.
As part of this effort, children
and parents from Trinity United
Methodist Church were welcomed
to the garden Friday to get ideas for
their own garden and nature dub.
Jay Bost, president of the soci-
ety and a graduate student in UF's
School of Natural Resources and
Environment, said he hopes the gar-
den can be an educational resource
for others in UF and Gainesville.
The garden, which features new
signs labeling how plants are used
by different cultures, exemplifies
the principles of ethnoecology, the
study of how different cultures
interact with plants and animals in
their specific environments.
Rick Stepp, UF associate profes-
sor of anthropology and member of
the society, believes that fostering

Andrew Pusey, 5, takes cotton from Jay Bost, president of the UF Ethnoecology Society. His father, Josh,
holds him up during the weekly work party at the student agricultural gardens on campus Friday evening.


Stepp said ethnoecological
knowledge is crucial to the survival
of many cultures.
"In traditional cultures, they rely
on plants for everything," he said.
"Their entire medical system is or-
ganized around the use of medicinal
plants. They don't go to doctors;
They go out into the garden."
Stepp said UF had its own me-
dicinal garden in the 1930s where
pharmacy students were trained.
The plants were used to treat stu-
dents. But the use of medicinal
plants in the United States has de-
dined, Stepp said.
"Medicinal plants lost their im-
portance, at least in our culture," he
said. "But still, a lot of medicinals on
the shelf have their origin in plant
products or are still made from
plants today."
Although the plants provide
food and medicine, Dominique
Ardura, an environmental science
and biochemistry junior, said the
best reward was the experience of
working there.
Ardura,. a member of the
Ethnoecology Society, said her time
working in the garden has been ful-
filling and educational.
"I have always been into plants,
but this has been a really big broad-
ening for me because I've seen a
lot more stuff in this place than I
would've seen in three years on my
own," she said.
The society ended the day with a
barbecue of water-buffalo burgers,
as they do every week. The burgers
are provided by the society's faculty
sponsor, Hugh Popenoe, who has a
herd of water buffalo.

UPD investigating

Two female students were

UPD is investigating the
three incidents, the release

Lt. Robert Wagner, a UPD
spokesman, said the depart-

two grabbing episodes could
result in a battery charge.
The release stated that
Wednesday at 10 p.m., a man,
who was described as about 5

grabbed a 17-year-old female


UF student near the architec-
ture building.
The second grabbing inci-
dent happened at 3 a.m. Friday

Canned food drive begins today


By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

This week is National Hunger
and Homelessness Awareness
Week, and the UF Students in
Free Enterprise, or SIFE, class is
helping to fill the shelves of a lo-
cal food bank.
The students will host a
"Chomp Out Hunger" canned
food drive for the Bread of the
Mighty Food Bank from Tuesday
to Friday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., on the
Plaza of the Americas.
Matthew Kaufmann, a mem-
ber of SIFE, said the organization
is accepting canned goods and
cash donations for the food bank.
The Bread of the Mighty's
food supply is the lowest it has
been in about eight years.
Kaufmann, a UF economics
junior, said, "This is the week be-
fore Thanksgiving, and I think it's
great that we're able to help out at


this time."
SIFE students try to imple-
ment service projects with busi-
ness goals in mind, Kaufmann
said.
The five pillars they use for
projects are market economics,
success skills, entrepreneurship,
financial literacy and business
ethics, the SIFE Web site stated.
"We just may be able to
do some Thanksgiving
boxes if this goes on."
Anne Voyles
director of Bread of the Mighty

SIFE has created a can col-
lection competition among
business organizations in the
Warrington College of Business
Administration, Kaufmann said.
Mentor groups of the Florida
Leadership Academy, which pro-
vides business programs to UF


sophomores, are also participat-
ing, he said. However, Kaufmann
said the food drive represents
more than learning about event
planning and business goals.
Anne Voyles, director of Bread
of the Mighty, said the food drive
will help maintain the bank's
supply of food for nonprofit or-
ganizations during the holiday.
SIFE's goal is to collect 1,500
cans of food, Kaufmann said.
. "We just may be able to do
some Thanksgiving boxes if this
goes on," Voyles said.
If SIFE reaches its goal, the
students will donate about one
ton of food, she said.
The Thanksgiving boxes
would be passed out to families
who couldn't normally afford a
holiday meal.
"I feel that a lot of people are
praying for food to come in to
feed the hungry people," Voyles
said.

Boy walking for homeless children


By KORI FREDERICK
Alligator Writer

A 9-year-old boy walking across the
state to raise awareness for homeless
children will stop in Gainesville today.
Zach Bonner is walking 250 miles
from Tampa to Tallahassee for the or-
ganization Stand Up for Kids. Stand
Up For Kids promotes awareness and
raises money for children who are
homeless around the nation.
Zach will start in Micanopy early
today and will stop in Gainesville at
the corner of Southwest 13th Street and
Museum Road at 3:45 p.m.


His journey began Nov. 3 and is
planned to end Nov. 26. His goal is to
walk more than 10 miles a day. At night,
he sleeps in an RV with his family. He
will celebrate Thanksgiving and his
10th birthday while traveling.
"I think Zach is doing a very
brave thing."
Danlelle Emenhlser
SG Community Political Affairs Cabinet

Zach wears a Global Positioning
.System that tracks his progress, which
is then documented on the Web site
zachtracker.com.


"I think Zach is doing a very brave
thing," said Danielle Emenhiser,
director of the Student Government
Community Political Affairs Cabinet.
"He wants to raise awareness for home-
less kids around the nation, and I think
what he's doing is a great thing."
After he arrives in Gainesville, Zach
will speak to the Student Senate at the
Senate meeting tonight at 7:30.
There will also be a reception for
Zach when he arrives. The reception
will be held in Reitz Union, Rooms 288
and 291.
Zach founded The Little Red Wagon
Foundation, a nonprofit organization
that helps children in distress.

Plans for the park started in 1983, he said, when war wid-
ow Nina Stanley came to a meeting of the Veterans' Advisory
Board asking where she could go on Veterans Day to remem-
ber her husband, who was buried overseas.

UF CROSS COUNTRY

Women make NCAAs, men don't


By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Alligator Writer

The UF women's cross country
team received an at-large bid to the
NCAA Championships while the
men's team did not, after the NCAA
South Region Championship on
Saturday in Gainesville.
Both teams finished a disap-
pointing third, just one spot shy
of an automatic bid to the national
championship.
The men fell to No. 17 Alabama
and Florida State, and the women
finished behind No. 3 Florida State
and No. 29 Georgia.
Junior Jeremy Criscione, who
did receive an automatic bid as an
individual to the national champi-
onships, finished seventh overall
and led the men with a career-best
10k time of 30:43.64.
"I didn't have the finish I wanted
to, as strong as I wanted to, but I
was still able to move up a little bit,"


Criscione said.
Criscione defended some of
his teammate's lackluster perfor-
mances.
"You can't expect everybody to
have a great race every time, and it's
not like they didn't try," he said.
"I know everybody gave it their
-......... ...... .. best."
Senior Enoch
Nadler, usually
one of the Gators'
most dependable
runners, strug-
gled throughout
the race and fin-
Pigg wished 31st overall
to round out the UF men's top five.
"It was the last thing he wanted,"
UF coach Jeff Pigg said. "He's put so
much effort into it, and unfortunate-
ly it didn't happen quite the way he
wanted."
The men and women had similar
starts to their races, running as a
pack at the front and keeping pace


with the other top teams.
For the women's team, senior
Lindsay Sundell took the reins and
finished 10th overall en route to
leading the team with a 6k time of
21:00.78.
Her performance marks the
second time this season she has fin-
ished first at home.
"I kind of just started having
fun," Sundell said.
Despite the team finishing just
shy of the No. 2 spot, Sundell was
happy with the efforts.
"It's a little disappointing; but I
think we did pretty well," she said.
"We definitely come through when
it counts, so I think we're alright
now."
Pigg, however, showed frustra-
tion, despite knowing how close his
runners came to capping the finish
they wanted.
"I'm disappointed," he said "But
I'm not a senior. It isn't my last
meet."


Tebow puts conference title before Heisman


FOLLOW, from page 1


team lost two straight, the second of which, against
unranked Maryland, required a fierce Eagles come-
back to even make it a respectable 42-35 loss.
Arkansas running back Darren McFadden's chanc-
es also took a hit this weekend when his team was
walloped 34-13 at Tennessee.
"I'd vote for him," team captain and wide receiver
Andre Caldwell said of Tebow. "He's got my vote.
Games like that will hype you up get you to win
the Heisman. If he keeps playing like that, there's no
way he shouldn't get it."
Tebow's biggest competition at ,the moment is
Oregon quarterback Dennis Dixon. Tebow has 42
total touchdowns on the season and Dixon only has
28, but the Ducks have just one loss compared to the
Gators' three.
Also, a sophomore has never won the award.
Former UF quarterback Rex Grossman may have
come the closest of any second-year player, but he
finished runner-up behind Nebraska quarterback
Eric Crouch in 2001.
While Meyer said it was "as good of a performance


as I've ever seen a quarterback play," he doesn't plan
on launching a major campaign. When Meyer was at
Utah, there was a campaign to get quarterback Alex
Smith the award.
However, Meyer said that UF generates more ex-
posure than Utah does, and it's not as necessary to
hype a name like Tebow's.
"I imagine a lot of people have seen him play,"
Meyer said.
Although Gators fans may cheer as
Woodson trails in the Heisman race,
UF needs some strong performances
from him to keep slim Southeastern
Football Conference championship hopes alive.
Tennessee and Georgia must lose
for the Gators to get back to Atlanta. The Wildcats
play the Bulldogs this week and the Volunteers next
week.
At least for the time being, the Gators have turned
into Wildcats fans.
Tebow said he would gladly trade a Heisman
Trophy for a spot in Atlanta.
"Now we're stuck praying and hoping and root-
ing for Kentucky," Tebow said. "Hopefully, Andre'
Woodson has some great games and goes and wins
the Heisman for us."

UF SOCCER

UF wins SEC Tournament, hosts Miami in NCAAs


By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Writer

Following Friday night's 1-0
win against LSU and Sunday's
4-1 thrashing of Georgia in the
Southeastern Conference title
game, the UF soccer team achieved
its goal.
For the eighth time in 12 years,
the Gators (16-4-2, 9-2 SEC) are
SEC Tournament champions, but
this one was a bit different from
the others.
After starting the conference
schedule with two losses, the
Gators changed their approach.
Long considered one of the SEC's
premier teams, the squad nonethe-
less took up a new mantra, "We're


now the hunters, not the hunted."
They haven't lost since.
The Gators are riding high on
a 12-game winning streak with
sights set on claiming the season's
ultimate goal: the national title.
UF will begin its NCAA
Tournament quest in Gainesville
as a N 3 seed Friday against
Miami.
"We're playing the best soccer
we've ever seen at the University
of Florida in terms of the way we
play and the teamwork both of-
fensively and defensively," UF
coach Becky lurleigh said. "I think
that's exciting because of the way
we're playing and because it helps
develop players, too.
"You have to make good deci-


sions, and you have to be a good
soccer player."
Sunday's victory wasn't only
about the SEC title. It was also
an opportunity for the Gators
to avenge their 2-1 loss to the
Bulldogs earlier this season.
"Our team really enjoys the
idea of being able to pos-
sess the ball 90 percent of
the game."
Becky Burleigh
UF Soccer Coach

"It is definitely a great feeling
to come back and play a team that
beat us earlier in the season and for
it to be in the championship makes


it special," senior forward KeLeigh
Hudson said.
Ameera Abdullah scored the
match's first goal in the ninth
minute. Megan Kerns found the
forward streaking into the box
and Abdullah found the back of
the net.
Bishop scored the second goal
of the match in the 56th minute.
The senior finished the tourna-
ment with three goals and rung
up four assists en route to being
named tournament MVP.
"It is a nice honor, but it was
certainly a team effort out there
today and in this tournament,"
Bishop said. "It was a great team
effort. I can't credit the defense
enough for what they have done


over the past weeks. We have only
given up two goals in the past 12
games, which is unbelievable."
UF played suffocating defense.
Georgia had just seven shot at-
tempts, and its lone score came
from forward Caroline Simpson
on a penalty kick. The goal ended
UF's six-match shutout streak and
snapped a program record of 625
minutes without allowing ascore.
UF's eight seniors are focused
on extending their season and are
six victories away from the ulti-
mate storybook ending.
"To win the tournament
championship is a great feeling,"
Hudson said. "And being a senior,
it is something that you always
want to do go out on top."


Gators clinch conference title, record 700th victory


* UF HAS WON 17 STRAIGHT CON-
FERENCE TITLES.

By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Writer

When Mary Wise took the helm of the
UF volleyball team in 1991, she inherited
an average program with no Southeastern
Conference championships and an overall
record of 155-100 in seven seasons.
Sixteen years later, the Gators are any-
thing but mediocre.
UF recorded its 700th all-time victory in
a dominating 3-0 win against Kentucky (30-
28, 30-19, 30-22) on Sunday afternoon. On
Friday, UF also clinched its 17th consecutive
SEC title with a 3-0 sweep against Tennessee
(30-20, 30-18, 30-27).
"I work for a guy (UF athletics director
Jeremy Foley) who reminds us that these


things never get old, and they don't," Wise
said.
The No. 8 Gators (24-1, 17-1 SEC) out-
played Kentucky all over the court, hitting
.340 compared to the Wildcats' .147.
It was Senior Day for Kentucky, but UF,
led by its own senior class, proved superior.
Outside hitter Marcie Hampton ended
the match in game three with her 17th kill of
the day. She also added a match-high 19 digs
to earn the 41st double-double of her career.
Add that to her 18 kills and 16 digs
against Tennessee on Friday night and you
have the player of the weekend.
"I told her after the match she hit a shot
only (former UF player) Aury Cruz could
have hit," Wise said. "It wasn't that she just
hit it sharp angle, but she hit it sharp angle
with big-time pace on it. Marcie was great."
In both weekend matches, she had al-
ready earned a double-double before game
three.


UF jumped on the Wildcats early in the
third game, getting out to a 9-3 lead before
Kentucky had to call a timeout. It did little
to help, as the Gators quickly expanded the
lead to 13-4.
The sweep extended
UF's winning streak to
eight matches, and the
team has not lost even
an individual game since
Oct. 19 against Auburn, a
streak of 23.
Three UF players
Hampton reached double-digits in
kills, with Callie Rivers
and Amber McCray each tallying nine.
That's especially impressive considering
they faced Kentucky's vaunted middle
blocker Queen Nzenwa.
"That's really good against Queen," Wise
said. "She's the sixth-best blocker in the
country, and she only had one block on the


match."
UF and Kentucky were tied late in game
one at 24-24, but Rivers and Hampton got
back-to-back kills to put the Gators up by
two. Hampton finished the game with a
kill.
Wise also praised the play of senior setter
Angie McGinnis, who had 50 assists Sunday
and 105 total on the weekend.
"Angie McGinnis was first-team All-
American," Wise said. "We've always said
great players make everybody else around
them look better."
On Friday, UF was ahead from the start.
The Volunteers gave little resistance until
game three.
UF finished off Tennessee when the
Volunteers had an attack go out of bou-nds.
The Gators jumped off the bench and ran
to the center of the court, where they cel-
ebrated winning the SEC championship.

James earns carries in Harvin's absence


FOOT, from page 23


Rulpting back Brandon James
had the most playing time of his
career on offense. James, who nor-
mally has his biggest impact on the
return game, had 10 carries with
Harvin out.
While he picked up just 49 yards
and fumbled once, he provided a
11".1411


speedy changeup to Tebow's bruis-
ing running style.
James helped fill a crucial void in
Harvin's absence, Meyer said.
"Other than the
turnover,... heplayed
a fine game for us."
Already leading 27-
Football 14 at halftime, the
Gators came out and
wasted no time landing a killing


blow on the Gamecocks. On the first
play of the second half, Tebow laced
a short pass to freshman tight end
Aaron Hernandez. Hemandez took
it 55 yards to.the South Carolina 25-
yard line to set up one of Tebow's
rushing scores.
"It was a great team win on the
road in the SEC," Meyer said. "We
look forward to going home and
finishing our season there."


Donovan: Stats deceiving for Speights, Werner


HOOPS, from page 23

with 16 points.
Speights brought the crowd to its feet with an electri-
fying dunk early in the first half.
But Donovan expressed doubts about Speights' play
after the game, noting his three rebounds and poor de-
fense as areas of concern.
"He's turned the ball over an enormous amount of
times," Donovan said. "Marresse does a lot of things that
show up in the stat sheet, but he also did a lot of things
that hurt our team."
After leading the Gators with 21 points on Friday,
guard Nick Calathes added 15 points and eight assists.
Calathes, however, was just 4 for 13 on the day.
"I wanted to make a point to fill the stat sheet up,"
Calathes said. "I need to get rebounds and get more as-
sists to help our team win."
Freshmen forwards Adam Allen and Chandler
Parsons also contributed, adding 15 points each off the
bench.
Struggling sophomore Dan Werner turned in his best


performance so far, scoring 5 points and grabbing seven
rebounds.
"People have been asking what's wrong, what's the
problem," Donovan said. "But you know what? Dan
Werner has been as valuable and significant as any guy
on our roster because he does so much to help our team
that doesn't show up on the stat sheet."
For now, it seems fellow sopho-
more Jonathan Mitchell has worked
his way out of the lineup. After play-
ing only four minutes in Friday's
game, Mitchell saw just 12 minutes of
action on Sunday and didn't attempt
a shot from the field.
Donovan continued to chum the
Calathes roster, using 14 different lineups in
the first half alone.
With the victory, the Gators extended their home
winning streak to 21 games, setting a new school record.
The streak began against Georgia on March 1, 2006.
UF is now tied with UCLA for the sixth-longest
home streak in the nation. Memphis tops the list with 34
straight victories.


NICK-EL, from page 23

He broke the school record for rushing touchdowns in a
game and in a season (19), and extended his school-record
scoring streak to 12 games.
He also moved atop the Southeastern Conference's list
for rushing scores in a season. He passed a couple of run-
ning backs on the way named Emmitt Smith and Herschel
Walker. Perhaps you've heard of them.
He now has 42 total touchdowns on the year for a new
SEC record.
That's one more than Danny Wuerffel. Perhaps you've
heard of him, too.
Those are all of the pro-Tebow Heisman points.
Now, here are the cons:
*He's only a sophomore, and you know the deal with
sophomores and Heismans.
*His team has three losses and likely will not be playing
in a conference title game or a BCS bowl.
*He lost three of the four biggest games of the season
- Auburn, LSU and Georgia games where Heisman win-
ners usually have statement performances.
Sure, Tebow has his faults.
But so does everybody else this year, and, last time I
checked, somebody has to be given the award.
Troy Smith, Brady Quinn and Darren McFadden from
2006 would all win the Heisman this year.
We must decide amongst Tebow, Dennis Dixon whose
stats are meager compared to Tebow's and McFadden in
a down year.
Just as UF football opened the year with a bang on Jan.
8, Tebow should end it on Dec. 8 in New York with a splash
of his own.

UF WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

Dotson fuels close UF win


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

The UF women's basketball
team turned to one of its vet-
erans to lead the way Monday
night.
Junior forward Marshae
Dotson scored 25 points on
10-of-19 shooting and added 16
rebounds to lead the Gators to
a 67-63 victory against Robert
Morris.
Both figures were just shy of
career highs for Dotson.
"We ask Marshae to do a lot,
but when you're a great player,
a lot is expected of you," UFP
coach Amanda Butler said.
"She knows that we're going
to keep going to her until they
stop it."
The Gators (2-0) defeated
Xavier 82-71 Friday night in the
team's season opener. UF made
a 51-point second-half effort
to overcome a 32-31 halftime
deficit.
Dotson fractured her nose
after taking an elbow to the
face in Friday's match.
Doctors told her not to wear
a mask for Monday's game be-
cause it would press too hard
on her face.
The injury did not affect her
play.
"I told myself I couldn't
think about getting hit in my


face," Dotson said. "Just play."
Dotson's courage motivated
her teammates as well.
"When we weren't hitting
shots outside, we were giving
her the ball and she was attack-
ing the basket," senior guard.
Depree Bowden said.
Perhaps the most surpris-
ing stat in Monday night's box
score was from another vet-
eran, guard Sha Brooks, who
finished the night scoreless.
After scoring 16 points Friday
against Xavier, the junior
missed all ten of her field-goal
attempts Monday and had just
one rebound and one steal.
"When we weren't hit-
ting shots outside, we
were giving her the ball
and she was attacking
the basket."
Depree Bowden
UF senior guard

"Sometimes it just doesn't
fall," Butler said.
Robert Morris attempted to
match UF's quick pace in the
early minutes, at times utilizing
a full-court press and pushing
the ball on offense. Instead of
high-scoring action, the teams
combined for a sloppy, seven
turnovers to just seven total
points in the first 4:45 of the


game. The teams combined
for 20 turnovers in the first half
alone.
The Gators struggled
against shooters in their zone
defense, and Robert Morris
guard Sade Logan made back-
to-back three-pointers to cut
the lead to 30-29 with 1:55 left
in the first half.
The Gators' three-point
shooting woes also continued
as the team went 1 of 11 from
behind the arc.
The Colonials stayed in the
game, even taking their first
lead early in the second half on
a free throw by senior Chinata
Nesbit.
With just more than a min-
ute remaining, Logan knocked
down a jumper to pull the
Colonials within 1 point.
The Gators would answer
as Bowden drove down the
baseline and laid the ball off
the glass to send the lead back
to three.
Dotson stole a Colonials in-
bound pass with 30 seconds left
to seal the Gators victory.
Butler's motto is constant
improvement, and she contin-
ues to see that in her team.
"We're getting better," she
said. "That's where we always
want to be. There are lessons to
be learned from this game. ...
We're going to do everything
we can to win."

F QB breaks records in win


Ale\ Kol)er, Alligator
UF wide receiver Andre Caldwell had 148 yards receiving and a touchdown against South
Carolina in the Gators' 51-31 win against the Gamecocks on Saturday.


Tebow scores 7

times vs. 'Cocks
By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

COLUMBIA, S.C. With 1:37 left,
Andre Caldwell leaped up, came down
with the ball in the end zone and grinned
while pointing to the remaining patch of
Gators fans.
His quarterback, Tim Tebow, had just
finished his night with seven touchdowns.
Even with no Percy Harvin, who
was back in Gainesville sick with a si-
nus infection and migraines, UF (7-3, 5-3
Southeastern Conference) had no problems
offensively Saturday night in a 51-31 crush-
ing of South Carolina.
"We're just not that good," Gamecocks
coach Steve Spurrier said. "The other team
toyed with us.
"If we played them 10 times, they'd
probably beat us 10 times. We got problems
stopping a lot of stuff. We got our butts
kicked."
Tebow had the best night of his young
career, finishing with five rushing touch-
downs, good for a single-season record 19
on the year. He also passed former Gators
quarterback Danny Wuerffel to break UF's
single-season touchdown record at 42.
Tebow finished with 304 yards through the
air and 120 on the ground.


When asked about Tebow's perfor-
mance, Spurrier was embarrassed.
"Don't get me bragging on the other
team's players," he said. "I've got enough
problems worrying about stopping the
third down and making one right now. Tim
Tebow is an excellent player, we all know
that."
While Tebow was spectacular, he wasn't
alone. Caldwell more than made up for
the absence of Harvin, finishing with 148
receiving yards and a score.
"I had to pick up a lot more extra slack,"
Caldwell said. "That's not expected, coming
into somebody's house and just whopping
them like that. They're probably in shock."
"If we played them 10 times,
they'd probably beat us 10
times."
Steve Spurrier
South Carolina Coach

After South Carolina fumbled the
opening snap, linebacker Brandon Spikes
quickly jumped on it to set up a quick UF
touchdown.
Spikes finished with 13 tackles and two
fumble recoveries, and Meyer named him
the defensive player of the game Monday.
"We just wanted to make plays and get
off the field on third down," Spikes said. "I
think we did that, got them in long situa-
tions."
SEE FOOT, PAGE 14


Hand the Heisman Trophy to Tebow


For all of the records Tim
Tebow broke Saturday
and for the hundreds
of yards he gained, one of his
single-digit statistics baffled
both Steve Spurrier and Urban
Meyer.
That number would be five,
as in five rushing touchdowns.
"How .many did he run
in, two or three?" a comical
Spurrier asked after getting out-
gunned in his own backyard.
Reporters chimed in quickly
with the answer like brown-
nosing fifth-graders.
"He ran five?" Spurrier re-
sponded. "Oh, gee, I lost count.
He rushed for five. Aw gee, I
wasn't keeping up with all of
them."
About 20 minutes later,
Meyer gazed at his box score
sheet in disbelief.


Nick Zaccardi
Nick-el Coverage
nzaccardi@alligator.org


"I had
no idea
about the
statistics,"
he said.
"But you
have a
young
guy have
120 yards


rush -
ing, five touchdowns. Five
touchdowns rushing? Five
touchdowns rushing? That's
unbelievable."
After Saturday's perfor-
mance, I'm convinced Tebow
deserves the Heisman Trophy, a
thought I held since September
but.now can profess openly.
In all, Tebow ran 26 times for
120 yards, five scores and one
cleated photographer.
Former alligatorSports


columnist and photographer
Tim Casey got stepped on by
Tebow during one run out of
bounds, leaving a penny-sized
raspberry on his white Irish
thigh and breaking a piece of
photo equipment I'm assuming
is pretty expensive.
Tebow also went 22 of 32
through the air for 304 yards,
two touchdowns and another
interception that you could
argue was at least partly the
receiver's fault.
Tebow had more total yards
(424) than South Carolina's en-
tire offense 384.
Wearing all white in a flash-
back to his high school days,
Tebow set upon rewriting re-
cord books just as he did while
at Ponte Vedra Nease.

Gators win handily


By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
dklein@alligator.org

After looking shaky at times
in its home opener against North
Dakota State, the UF men's bas-
ketball team scored early and of-
ten Sunday afternoon to dominate
Tennessee Tech 93-65.
The Gators shot an efficient 57
percent from the field, including a
9-for-17 performance from behind
the 3-point line.
UF (2-0) led throughout, and
led by as much as 37 during the
second half.
The young squad which fea-
tures seven freshmen on its roster
- showed flashes of the signature


unselfish nature of the past two
championship teams by totaling
21 assists on 33 field goals.
"I think they had the focus and
the passion today," UF coach Billy
Donovan said. "They played the
game the right
way unself-
ishly. They
passed the
basketball, and
I'm happy with
the way they
played."
Spelghts After being
called out by
Donovan after Friday's game, cen-
ter Marreese Speights responded

UF added some depth to its
running back corps Monday,
moving redshirt junior Markus
Manson back to the position.
Manson has played corner-
back4 his season after being a
running back his first two years.
"I'm real excited," he said. "I
just want to get on the field and
play, and whatever it takes for me
to help the team win, I'll do it."
Manson will provide some
much-needed aid at the posi-
tion, where Kestahn Moore and
Brandon James are the only regu-
lar players.
"We've just got too many guys
down," running backs coach Stan
Drayton said. "Traveling with
just a couple of backs is really
living dangerously. It only made
sense. Markus has played the
position, and he knows all that
stuff."
Drayton said Manson has a
chance to earn playing time for
this weekend's game against
Florida Atlantic, but Manson sees
things a bit differently.

"Percy was in (Sunday) and
is still sick," Coach Urban Meyer
said.
"I anticipate we'll have him
for sure (Tuesday). I think he'll
play this game."
Meyer said Harvin received
two IVs Sunday, and he spent
part of Monday getting treatment
in the team's training room.

POUNCEY COULD PLAY: After de-
claring Saturday that Maurkice
Pouncey's high ankle sprain
would keep the freshman side-
lined against FAU, Meyer said
Monday that he received word
that the guard might recover in
time to face the Owls.
Pouncey sat out Monday's
practice with a boot on his right
foot. If Pouncey can't play, red-
shirt freshman Maurice Hurt will
likely start in his place.

GAME TIME SET: The UF-Florida
State game on Nov. 24 will kick off
at 5 p.m. on CBS, the Southeastern
Conference announced Monday.
