SPECIAL REPORT


Machen nets



highest pay

By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

There's a powerful man roaming campus.
He's given thousands of dollars each year for
the upkeep of his Audi. He makes more money
than the governor.
The Chronicle of Higher Education recently
released the salaries of every university presi-
dent in the nation.
Guess who tops the list in Florida.
UF President Bernie Machen's base salary is
$411,037, according to the Chronicle's report.
On top of that, he gets a $7,888 allowance for
his car, $22,924 for retirement pay, a $75,000 an-
nual bonus and a $210,000 retention bonus.
All together, he gets $726,849.
That's about $25,000 more than Florida State
University President T.K. Wetherell and $593,917
more than Gov. Charlie Crist, who makes
$132,932 a year.
"It's a lot of money, you know?" Machen
said after a meeting of UF's Faculty Senate
on Thursday afternoon. "I feel, in some ways,
lucky."
"It's a lot of money, you know? I feel, in
some ways, lucky."
Bernie Machen
UF president

Machen flipped through the Chronicle's re-
port, grinning and pointing when he found the
page listing him as the sixth-highest-paid leader
of public universities nationwide.
David P. Roselle, president of the University
of Delaware makes the most $874,687 a year.
"Are university presidents worth that kind of
money?" Machen asked with a laugh.
As for how it feels to make more than the gov-
ernor, Machen just smiled.
"You're going to have to ask him how he
feels," he said.
Each year, Machen gets a raise of about 2 to
3 percent, the same raise the rest of UF's faculty
and administrators receive, said Dianna Morgan,
chairwoman of UF's Board of Trustees.
The board serves as the university's highest
governing body.

UF bucks trend in law-school apps


Levin is seeing more interest


By ILEANA MORALES
Alligator Writer
imorales@alligator.org

While law schools nationwide are expe-
riencing a decline in applications this year,
the number of applications to UF's College
of Law is on the rise.
In an annual Kaplan Test Prep and
Admissions nationwide survey of 190 law
school admissions officers, half reported
a decline in applications in the past two
years.
Robert Jerry, dean of UF's Levin College
of Law, said UF has not been affected by
this trend in the last two years.
He said in 2006, the number of applica-
tions rose 10 percent, about 3,000 applica-
tions.
"It's fair to say that our law school is
increasingly a popular first-choice destina-
tion," Jerry said.
Jerry said he expects the number of


applications to UF law school to continue
to rise.
"People who take a dose look at the
university and especially those taking a
look at the law school realize we've got
some pretty good things going on here,"
he said.
Glen Stohr, assistant director of pre-law
programs for Kaplan, said at a school like
UF there would always
UF be fierce competition
Academics regardless of national
numbers.
Stohr said 79 percent of the admissions
officers surveyed said the nationwide
decline in applications hasn't made the ad-
missions process less competitive, adding
the trend implies the quality of applicants
is getting stronger.
"While it's a good time to apply with a
smaller cohort, you've really got to make
sure the application is top-notch," Stohr
said.


He said the decline wouldn't continue
for long and is part of a cycle. In the past
10 or 15 years, there has been a steady in-
crease in applications.
It's still enough of a decline for law
school hopefuls to take advantage of, he
said.
"What that means for students is that
this is a really, really good time to apply,"
Stohr said.
Wendy Margolis, Law School
Admission Council director of commu-
nications, said she doesn't think it's a sig-
nificant decline. Margolis said the number
of applicants has declined, but the Law
School Admission Council has increased
registrations for the law school admission
test, known as the LSAT.
Stohr said those applying to law school
should also be aware of changes that were
made to the LSAT in June, but not to be
afraid.
- "Students shouldn't fear it, but respect
that it's there and be sure to prepare in a
way that you will be ready for it," Stohr
said.

E-cards spread holiday cheer at UF


Meyer registers


voters on campus

By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Staff Writer
llewis@alligator.org

Bobbing his head to Led Zeppelin tunes, Andrew Meyer
wasn't attracting too much attention Thuisday afternoon.
As he manned a table on the Reitz Union Colonnade, Meyer
blared music from a portable stereo and kept dose watch over
a stack of voter-registration forms. Meanwhile, dozens of stu-
dents shuffled by without even giving him a second glance.
Call this the new normal for Meyer, the UF telecommunica-
tion senior famous for being Tasered. After spending about two
months at the center of a media maelstrom, Meyer says he's
trying to downplay his status and promote more important is-
sues namely, voter registration and Ron Paul.
To achieve his goals, he's launched a mini voter-registration
drive on UF's campus.
Meyer has spent five days signing up new voters without
the aid of Chomp the Vote, Student Government's registration
drive. (The group did give him some free pens, though.)
Eyeing passers-by from his registration station
On on the colonnade, Meyer said he helped about
Campus 100 people sign up to vote during the first three
days of his effort.
But he stressed that he's not trying to extend
his 15 minutes of fame. Instead, he said, he and a friend were
looking for ways to effect change.
"The apathy needs to stop," Meyer said.
So, armed with blank registration forms, he's planted him-
self on the colonnade to chat up voter issues to just about any-
one who approaches him.
He's also been promoting Paul, his presidential candidate
of choice. .
Mainstream media outlets have ignored the GOP Texas
congressman's message for too long, Meyer said.
"They don't want to put him on the cover of The New York
Times," he said.
So this is a day in the new life of Meyer: chitchatting with
students about political activism as he plays Zeppelin and Rage
Against the Machine on his portable stereo.
Of course, fame doesn't always fade quickly. Although
many passers-by steered clear of the registration table, Meyer
admitted he'd been recognized "a couple times."

Although UF's cuddly-as-a-cactus, charming-as-an-
eel budget woes threaten to rob students of teachers and
advisers, UF administrators just aren't ready to give up
seasonal cheer.
This year, UF's holiday cards are coming without
ribbons. They're coming without tags. They're coming
without packages, boxes or bags.
Instead, UF President Bernie Machen has encour-
aged UF's faculty members to switch to electronic greet-
ing cards to save trees and money, he wrote in a memo to
UF's deans, directors and department chairs.
Each year, 2.65 billion holiday cards are sold nation-
wide, Machen wrote in the memo.
"That's enough to fill Ben Hill Griffin Stadium and
Florida Field to the brim!" he wrote.
After a meeting of UF's Faculty Senate on Thursday
afternoon, Machen said he didn't know how many
cards his office sends out every year.
"E-mail is not the same as a personal
card."
Bernie Machen
UF president


By motioning with his hand, he estimated the stack
towers up to his shoulder.
Machen's office sends cards to financial donors, leg-
islators and all the other state universities.
"Why do we do it? Because of tradition," he said. "I
inherited a Christmas list."
When UF's Office of Sustainability brought up the
idea of e-mailed greeting cards, Machen said he was
skeptical whether it would be well-received.
When he asked around, he said no one objected.
He said his main concern was that the e-mailed cards
would seem unfriendly.
"E-mail is not the same as a personal card," he said.
"It's not even the same as a letter."
In his memo, Machen included an example of one of
the brightly colored, nondenominational cards available
on UF's Web site.
"Of course, you can create your own design, if you
prefer," he wrote.

On Thursday, Machen chuckled at the thought of
choosing the card he'll send out.
"My wife picks them," he said, adding that she usu-
ally picks two or three cards of the 13 offered, and they


decide on one together.
Chris Brazda, spokesman for the UF Foundation,
which handles donations to UF, said most colleges at UF
send out their own holiday cards to thank donors.
UF's Alumni Association also sends holiday cards to
the association's 50,000 members each year, Brazda said.
This year, the association will only send out electronic
cards to the 30,000 members with available e-mail ad-
dresses, he said.
He said he didn't know how much money the as-
sociation would save, but between printing and postal
costs, it's a "considerable amount."
The 20,000 members without e-mail addresses won't
get anything in their virtual stockings.
Still, the budget hasn't stolen Christmas, Hanukkah,
Kwanzaa or any other holiday, for that matter. And
Machen, with his jolly laugh and snow-white hair, is
making sure of it.


UF is providing e-cards, such as the one above, for
administrators and faculty to send out.

Temperatures may fall below freezingthis weekend


N IT MAY BE 31 DEGREES TONIGHT.

By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

Temperatures are expected to fall to or
below freezing late tonight into early Saturday
morning.


PhilPeterson, a forecaster at theJacksonville
National Weather Service Forecast Office, said
the office is projecting the temperature to be 31
degrees late tonight to early Saturday.
That is one degree below freezing, and a
freeze watch is in effect for the Gainesville
area, Peterson said.
Danny Hinson, Alachua County
Emergency Management planner, said


Gainesville is in the southern area of the freeze
watch.
It's mainly for southern Georgia and the
northeast inland part of Florida,
Local Hinson said.
News People should cover up any
fragile plants that cannot take a
light freeze, such as tropical plants, Peterson
said.


They should also make sure their heaters
are working correctly, he said.
Hinson said to make sure the elderly are
protected from colder weather.
If people live in mobile homes or older
homes that might have exposed pipes, they
need to make sure water runs through the
entire system so the pipes don't freeze, Hinson
said.


AROUND UF

Radio service cuts programs, upsetting some listeners


By KORI FREDERICK
Alligator Writer

Carol Massey wakes up every
Thursday and waits to hear the
grocery ads read over the radio.
The Gainesville resident, who is
blind, depends on the program to
know where she can go to save
money.
She's used the Radio Reading-
Service, which has been provided
by UF's Classic 89, since its incep-
tion in 1992.
She has relied on the service for
activities such as listening to a pro-
gram called "Window Shopping,"
which reads ads from various
stores in town. /
The reading service still reads
the grocery ads, usually twice on
Thursday, but Massey said it re-
ally "screws up her week" if they
aren't read, which happened a few
weeks ago.
"This is a really valuable service
for me," said Massey. "I'm blind,
so I can't get in the car and go look
myself."
Massey and several others
said they have noticed a decline
in services provided by the Radio
Reading Service, which has a lis-
tening audience of 650, she said.
Listeners are sent special receiv-
ers that pick up the low-frequency

signal the service is broadcast over.
As part of the service, volunteers
read newspapers, grocery ads,
magazines and books to the listen-
ers.
Massey said many" programs,
such as "Window Shopping," have
been canceled. Weekend service
has also been canceled.
"I would like to see more local
service," Massey said. "I would
like to see' some of those old pro-
grams back on the air."
However, Jean DeFlumer,
station manager, said "Window
Shopping" and weekend service
were cut because there weren't
enough volunteers.
DeFlumer also said the station
likes to use the Minnesota reading
service when it finishes with local
programming.
Massey said the service is rely-
ing too much on broadcasts from a
Minnesota reading service, instead
of having local programming.
One of the most recent issues
bothering listeners is the cancella-
tion of "Focus," a local program.
"Focus" brought on health
professionals, doctors, nurses
and people from agencies like the
Veteran's Affairs and Hospice.
The program, a live broadcast,
was ended last month because
the host, Jo DeNicola, didn't want
to record her show a week in ad-


vance.
DeNicola said it helped people
respond to problems in their lives
in a positive manner. She brought
in guests who helped the listeners
know what was going on in their
community.
DeNicola said this was the only
live local programming offered to
them.
She said her program was
canceled because she went in to
do her show one day and dis-
covered the station had been off
the air. DeNicola said she had to
find an engineer to help her, and
later got her show started with the
engineer's help.
After DeNicola complained
about the incident, DeFlumer
told her she would be required
to record her show a week in ad-
vance and she could only have two
guests per month.
"She wanted to change the for-
-mat of the entire show," DeNicola
said. "I didn't want her to do that,
so I quit."
DeFlumer said it is common
practice for shows to be recorded
a week in advance. She said it did
not pull the show off the air.
"There is a certain group of
people who are malcontent,"
DeFlumer said. "Most of our lis-
teners are very positive except this
one group of people. We expected


a backlash from this show going
off the air."
Joan Miles, a listener since 1993,
said she has not received a sched-
ule since DeFlumer- took over in
1999.
Many long-time listeners have
complained about not knowing
the schedule. Both Miles and
Massey said they haven't known
the schedule for several years.
DeFlumer said programs are
available and are sent out when
they send out the receivers.
"Many people haven't gotten
updated programming because
they've had their receivers for
years," DeFlumer explained.
Many listeners are upset about
the lack of a representative voice.

When the service began, there
was an advisory board of listeners,
volunteers and workers who gave
feedback and comments about the
service, Massey said.
This board was extinguished
in 2000 by Henry Pensis, station
manager. He said the program
didn't need a board because it had

Many long-time volunteers
quit helping at the station because
they couldn't get in contact with

Gonzales' requests turned down


By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Alligator Writer
dculclasure@alligator.org

Former U.S. Attorney General
Alberto Gonzales will speak at UF on
Monday, but his speech will not go
exactly as he wanted.
Gonzales, who resigned from his
White House position in August after
a controversial tenure, made several
requests that were refused by Accent,
Student Government's speakers
bureau.
He requested that his representa-
tives choose which members of the
press cover the event and that they
not use television cameras and re-
cording devices during his speech,
his contract stated.
Gonzales also asked Accent not to
disclose the amount he was paid for
his speech $40,000, the contract
stated.
Steven Blank, Accent chairman,
said the requests were denied be-
cause they violated university polices


and possibly state statutes, but he
didn't know the exact rules broken.
Beth Waltrip, director of student
activities and manager of Accent's
legal and contractual issues, could
not be reached by press time.
Accent's refusal of the requests
did not cause any negotiating prob-
lems, Blank said.
The speakers
bureau did grant
Gonzales ,the
right to control
the question-and-
answer session
Gonzales after his speech.
Attendees must
write questions on index cards,
which will be collected and asked by
a moderator.
A faculty member from the Levin
College of Law will probably moder-
ate the speech, though no final deci-
sion has been made, Blank said.
Gonzales isn't the first visitor to
ask for special treatment, he said.
Elie Wiesel, a Holocaust survi-


vor who famously documented his
experiences in his autobiography,
"Night," requested a similar ques-
tion-and-answer process when he
spoke in March 2006.
"It doesn't impede students' abil-
ity to ask some hard-hitting ques-
tions, and hopefully he'll have some
hard-hitting answers," Blank said.
Gonzales also asked that the
venue be adequately lit so he can see
the audience and that his lectern be
positioned so the audience can't see
his notes. But most of the requests
Gonzales made were more ordinary,
such as asking for a wireless micro-
phone and a glass of water on stage,
the contract stated.
Gonzales will appear at 7:15
p.m. at the Phillips Center for the
Performing Arts.
Free tickets for students with
Gator 1 Cards are still available to-
day at the Phillips Center and the
University Box Office.

Gonzales' contract.

Editorial
Thank God it's finally starting to feel like season other
than summer. It's time to put the sundresses and shorts in the
back of the closet and break out the sweaters and scarves. It's
time to put on a pot of chili and sip some hot cocoa. It's time
to trade in the Corona Light for a dark, wintry ale. It's time to
stop going to class and stay under the covers instead. But most
of all, it's time to read this week's frost-covered edition of...



Darts & Laurels
First up, we send a this-just-sends-a-chill-down-our-
spines DART to former U.S. Attorney General Alberto
Gonzales, who will be speaking at UF next week. He want-
ed to limit the press at the speech, and he didn't want the
amount he was being paid disclosed. He also didn't want
video or audio recorders allowed at the speech.
Hey, Alberto: This isn't a classified speech to the CIA.
You'll be talking to a bunch of college students. We'vegotta
ask, does he plan to say some things he doesn't want re-
peated? But we've got to give a that-warms-us-right-back-
up LAUREL to Accent and UF for saying no to Gonzales'
demands.
Next, we send a that-cold-blast-of-air-may-be-from-an-
F-16-flying-over-your-head LAUREL to UF's Air Force
ROTC program, which was ranked the No. 1 medium-sized
unit in the country for the first time in the program's 65-year
history. UF student-cadets lead the program and will serve
the country. With this news, we know they'll do it well.
Also in UF and high-rankings news, we give a who-
needs-a-Florida-winter-when-you-could-experience-
one-in-England-Mexico-or-China LAUREL to the UF
International Center. UF ranks 17th in the nation for inter-
national-student attendance, and it also ranks high in short-
term study-abroad participation.
It's great to be a global Gator, isn't it? However, only
about 5 percent of UF students who want to study abroad
actually do. Really, when else will you be able to travel to
almost any country in the world and call it "school"?
Once you have a job, traveling will probably be reserved
for vacation. The time is now. Get to the International
Center it's in the Hub, right next to Starbucks, so you can
get a steaming hot cappuccino while you're there. And you
won't even have to trudge through the snow, uphill both
ways like your parents did, to get there.
Speaking of great places to study abroad, how about
Sweden? It's the land of H&M, umlauts, Greta Garbo and
the Celsius temperature scale. What could we be forgetting?
Oh, yes. Here's a Momma-Mia-that's-a-spicy-Swedish-
meatball LAUREL for IKEA, the Swedish furniture design
company, which has taken Florida by storm, opening
two stores in two months. The Orlando location opened
Thursday morning, and several UF students ventured there
in search of Vreta, Isig, Besta Tofta and Likt.
IKEA is a college student's dream furniture because of
its modem design and low prices. It's like the SuperTarget
of home design, with all the imported Swedish food you
could ever want. Pickled herring, anyone? We hear it's a
great breakfast on a chilly winter morning.
Someone at UF doesn't need to save money by buying
IKEA furniture, and for that we have a how-about-buy-
ing-a-sweater-for-every-UF-student DART to UF President
Bernie Machen, who earns a startling $726,849 a year, in-
cluding benefits. That's almost five and a half times what
Gov. Charlie Crist earns. Assuming Bernie worked 40 hours
a week (but we know he must work more), he's earning
$350 an hour. Damn.
Meanwhile, UF is facing huge budget cuts. Maybe
Bernie's salary could be put to better use? Read more from
us on this issue soon if our fingers aren't frozen.

Opinions

One of former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales' requests to Accent
was to position his lectern so the audience wouldn't see his notes.

Why doesn't Alberto Gonzalez want YOU to see his notes?


Column

Get your mind off of
y s everyone on a diet all of a sudden?
Maybe I'm imagining things, but it appears
there has been a recent outburst of weight-
loss frenzy among college students in the weeks before
Thanksgiving.
It could be fears of going home and seeing friends for
the first time in several months have prompted students to
panic about weight.
Or perhaps the coming holiday season is scaring stu-
dents into thinking if they don't lose weight now, they will
be twice as heavy once holiday feasting has ceased.
But whatever the reason, self-deprecating rants about
unwanted body fat and drastic goals to lose 15 pounds by
Christmas seem to be on a lot of people's agendas and
it's starting to piss me off.
I say this mainly because lately, I have been assigned the
position of Designated Moderator of my friends' daily Flab
Competitions.
"Look! Look at my stomach. I have a muffin-top now,"
one of my skinny friends complained as she lifted her shirt
in disgust, to which another of my fit friends replied, "Oh,
you think that's bad? Look at my legs. You'd think I'd be-
long in a forest with these tree-trunks."
It drives me nuts because there is no reason for any of
my friends to be upset about their bodies.
I know my friends aren't the only people who feel
insecure about their weight but unfortunately, most of us
are. Preoccupation with weight is commonplace in college.
We are bombarded with warnings of weight gain from the
Beginning.
I remember thinking, "Oh man, I don't want to gain the
Freshman 15," as I waved goodbye to my family on my first
day of college.


holiday weight gain
But really, it's OK if you've put
on a few pounds in college. It's
not the end of the world. What's
not OK is the way college students
complain about their bodies.
Colleen Shea When will people finally stop
Colleen Shea stressing over the little flab around
letters@alligator.org their arms?
When will women finally stop
trying to win Flab Competitions?
Instead of getting frenzied about losing a pants size be-
fore fall semester ends, maybe what we should do is start
feeling good about the way we look as we look now.
My mom gives pretty good advice. When I had a
pity party last year about the way I looked, she told me,
"Always be thankful for what you have. I used to look in
the mirror and hate myself. Now I look back at old photos
and think, 'Damn! I was a sexpot!'"
So let's try to feel good about ourselves and enjoy our
young bodies. So what if you put on a few pounds this se-
mester it happens. So what if your belly hangs over your
pants a little bit it's not going to kill you.
Now don't get me wrong, I'm not-saying it's OK to eat
junk food and sit around all day. I'm just saying that ex-
treme diet and exercise habits aren't OK, especially around
this time of year, when people should be enjoying time with
friends and family.
Plus, who honestly wants to think about calories on
Thanksgiving?
Wear your elastic pants and eat an extra slice of pump-
kin pie. Love your body.

Letters to the Editor
Meyer doesn't deserve our attention
In response to Thursday's guest column, I
challenge Andrew Meyer to keep his mouth
shut for once.
He is a fluke and just another misguided
miscreant begging for attention who some-
how cluelessly stumbled into an undeserved
moment of celebrity.
His column contained nothing new or
inspiring, and his attempt at flair made it
all the more annoying. What makes people
think they should listen to him? What wis-
dom could we expect to come from him?
The Andrew Meyer has done enough
damage to UF.

Meyer's call for voters filled with irony
I can only hope Andrew Meyer's guest

Yes, we should be more politically active I'm obviously exaggerating, but both

Online SG voting should be an option
During the fall Student Government
election, UF students again resoundingly
expressed the opinion that the voting system
at UF needs an overhaul. When 14 percent of
the electorate trudges through the rain to the
polls, it is time for a change.
Students For Online Voting offers UF that
change. Instead of having to find a polling sta-
tion and deal with the bureaucratic gridlock of
the current system, students would be able to
roll out of bed and vote on their computers.
Increased participation could make SG more
likely to respond to the needs of the student
body and the administration more likely to
listen to SG. It is all too easy for the adminis-
tration to get its way when fewer than 7,000
students make their voices heard at the polls.
Online voting would offer an innovative
way to make UF more democratic. We already
take classes, register and pay fees online. Why
shouldn't we vote there, too?

Campaign aims to limit some credit-card marketing


By NICOLE FINEO
Alligator Contributing Writer
Enticements of free food and
merchandise when applying for
credit cards could be a thing of
the past if a consumer advocacy
group has its way.
The U.S. Public Interest
Research Group recently launched
a nationwide campaign, "Truth
About Credit," in an effort to limit
aggressive credit card marketing


to college students.
Ed Mierzwinski, the consumer
advocate for the group, said he
is working to get the support of
lawmakers, including lobbying
"Congress to pass laws that regu-
late credit card offers to full-time
students.
Every campus has its own poli-
cy, he said, but in most states card
marketing on campus is legal.
In Florida, there are very few, if
any, laws regarding marketing on


"It is a challenge to get
the attention of today's
students."
Larry Ciaccia
president of AuthenTec Inc.

college campuses, he said.
Larry Ciaccia, president of
AuthenTec Inc., said college stu-
dents are a main target group for
credit card companies.


"Students are impulse buyers,
more likely to keep a credit bal-
ance and in many cases do not
have an existing credit card," he
said.
Alex Randon, an electrical
engineering student at UF, said a
free pita got him to sign up.
Pita Pit had a credit card rep-
resentative in the restaurant twice
last year, said Dan Beechner, a
manager at the restaurant.
Students who applied for a


specific card received a pita that
was paid for by the credit card
company. During the one-week
promotion, more than 100 pitas
were given to applicants, he said.
Similar promotions go on at
other restaurants in Gainesville.
The reason companies promote
with free food is because it works,
Ciaccia said.
"It is a challenge to get the at-
tention of today's students," he
said.


Homeless coalition raises concerns about Gainesville


* SHARING FOOD IN FRONT OF CITY
HALL IS ILLEGAL.

By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer
Gainesville was added to a list of 22 cities
that restrict providing meals to the homeless
in a November homeless advocacy report.
In a conference call Thursday morning,
the National Coalition for the Homeless and


National Law Center on Homelessness &
Poverty discussed the increase of cities pun-
ishing those who feed homeless people.
Gainesville city ordinances make sharing
food in front of City Hall illegal and require
food distribution centers for the homeless to
obtain a permit, the report stated.
Michael Stoops, executive director of the
coalition, said it named Gainesville the fifth-
meanest city in the country toward the home-
less in 2004.
"Gainesville is kind of self-nominating


themselves to be on the mean city list," he
said.
Concerns were also raised because the fu-
ture Gainesville one-stop homeless center will
be located 33 blocks north of
LOCal the downtown area, the report
News stated.
City spokesman Bob Woods
said the City Hall ordinance was created in
2003 by the city manager.
The city has allowed for some flexibility,
Woods said.


However, Stoops said the homeless can-
not get three hot meals seven days a week in
Gainesville.
"I think there's an effort in Gainesville and
elsewhere to drive the visible homeless out
from the downtown area," Stoops said.
Woods said the center, which would be lo-
cated on 3335 N. Main Terrace, would provide
various services in addition to meals.
"We think we can do better, and the citizens
in our community deserve better," Woods
said.

Senate collects


food for homeless


* MONEY DONATIONS ARE
BEING COLLECTED, TOO.

By ILEANA MORALES
Alligator Writer
imorales@alligator.org

Turkeys, cans of corn and green
beans are what the Student Senate
has been thinking about since
Monday.
Sen. Anita McNulty, who rep-
resents UF sophomores, said the
Senate is collecting canned foods,
nonperishable food items and
money donations for homeless
shelters and families.
McNulty said she has been col-
lecting contributions from student
senators and anyone involved
in Student Government since
Monday.
She said all donations will be
given to Bread of the Mighty Food


Bank, a part of America's Second
Harvdst, which is the largest chari-
table hunger-relief organization in
the United States.
She said the Senate has a ser-
vice project each semester, but this
is the first year it has sponsored a
Thanksgiving food drive.
" About 40 or 50 cans of food and
at least $75 in
.Student donations have
already been
collected for the
drive, she said.
McNulty' said she expects to
have about 200 cans of food and
$100 to donate by Tuesday, the last
day of the drive.
"I think that we're all so blessed
in certain ways to have homes,
and there's a lot of people less
fortunate," McNulty said. "It's
just a great way to give back to the
community."


Interest in languages rising


By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org
While numbers of UF
international students and
study-abroad participants are
on the upswing, many stu-
dents are also opting to.learn
foreign languages from the
comfort of Gainesville.
Enrollment in UF's lan-
guage courses is on the rise,.
following national trends of
booming Spanish classes and
fast-growing interest in learn-
ing Arabic and Chinese, said
Dennis Jett, director of UF's
International Center.
He said the growing inter-
est in Arabic began after the
Sept. 11 attacks.
Students want to be able
to understand the changing
world they live in, he said.
Enrollment in Arabic


classes nationwide has more
than doubled from 2002 to
2006, according to the latest
findings from the Modem
Language Association of
America.
"I think it's one of the
biggest gifts."
Janie Fouke
UF provost

The findings state that
Arabic has, for the first time,
jumped into the top-10 list of
the most popular languages.
"Almost all the language
courses have benefited some-
what in recent years as people
understand the importance of
having an international expe-
rience," Jett said.
Over time, some courses,
such as French and German,
may have had reduced enroll-


ment, Jett said, but he's still
pleased with students' overall
international interest.
"I wish I'd done it when I
was young," UIF Provost Janie
Fouke said about learning a
foreign language. "I think it's
one of the biggest gifts."
Fouke said she thinks too
many students are only fo-
cused on taking the classes
they need to graduate and get
a job right away.
Instead, they should try to
learn a new language and be-
come a "multi-dimensional"
person, she said.
Many UF colleges don't
even have foreign language
requirements, she said.
But she said she didn't
think those requirements
would change anytime soon.
If students want to take lan-
guage classes, they're able to,
Fouke added.

Board suggests


punishments

By DEVIN CULCLASURE

dcuiclasure@alligator.org

The Greek Judicial Board has recommended multiple pun-
ishments for a UF fraternity following an Aug. 30 party at its
house where members served alcohol to minors.
At a meeting Tuesday, the board recommended UF's chap-
ter of Phi Delta Theta Fraternity be placed on conduct proba-
tion through fall 2008, said Steve Orlando, UF spokesman.
In addition, the board suggested that the fraternity, known
as Phi Deltbe prohibited from recruitment during spring 2008.
The fraternity will also be barred from recruitment through fall
2008 unless it meets certain requirements.
The sanctions include performing community
Greek service, not holding socials through summer 2008
L-fe and only holding dry socials during fall 2008.
Phi Delt is allowed to participate in intramurals and
philanthropic events.
Gene Zdziarski, UF's dean of students, has the final say
on the suggestions. If he approves them, Phi Delt can appeal
the decision to Patricia Telles-Irvin, vice president for student
affairs.
The board had already warned the fraternity about a simi-
lar incident, Orlando said.
Matt Helgeson, Phi Delt president, said the fraternity has
offered to work with UF in whatever way possible.


UF students become mentors at elementary school


* VOLUNTEERS DEDICATE 30
MINUTES TO KIDS EACH WEEK.

By JACKIE HORSTMANN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Children at Metcalfe Elementary School
giggled with excitement Wednesday when
a group of UF students stepped into their
cafeteria.
Since October, UF students have been
paired up with students from Metcalfe as
part of Project MASCOT, Mentoring Alliance:
Students and Communities Outreaching
Together.


The project is a one-year, nonprofit pro-
gram for UF student volunteers interested in
helping and motivating elementary-school
children in the Gainesville area, according to
its Web site.
Every week, the volunteers dedicate 30
minutes to mentor children who are "at risk,"
and as of Monday, every third- and fourth-
grade student at Metcalfe has a mentor, said
Kelley Bonds Kostamo, partnership special-
ist for Alachua County School Volunteer
Program.
"I'm surprised college students would be
willing to put in their time and miss getting
sleep to mentor these kids," said Nathaniel
Jones, student specialist at Metcalfe.


At Metcalfe, about 75 percent of the stu-
dents receive free lunches, Jones said. He said
the majority of these children come from low-
income households.
"I tip my hat off to students who
come and mentor."
Nathaniel Jones
student specialist at Metcalfe

The children at Metcalfe have problems
identifying good role models, he said. Project
MASCOT will be able to keep the children
interested in not only their schoolwork but
also in developing hopes and dreams for their


future, Jones said.
"I tip my hat off to students who come and
mentor," he said.
. While some UF students are required to
participate in community service, others take
the initiative because they want to make a big-
ger difference in Gainesville.
Andrew Schneider, a 20-year-old UF biol-
ogy major, said he decided to participate in
Project MASCOT because he thought it would
be fun and rewarding to help at-risk children.
Schneider and his student, George, meet
every Wednesday at noon to hang out, play
sports and just talk about life.
"He smiles every time I visit him,"
Schneider said as he gave George a high-five.

Faculty Senate moves closer to altering honor court


* THE COURT MAY NOT
HEAR DISHONESTY CASES.

By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Alligator Writer
dculclasure@alligator.org

UF's Student Honor Court is
one step closer to losing its ability
to hear academic dishonesty cases,
which is its primary responsibility.
UF's Faculty Senate passed a
resolution Thursday urging Patricia
Telles-Irvin, vice president for stu-
dent affairs, to cut the number of
ways UF handles student academic
dishonesty cases.
Generally, students charged
with academic dishonesty can
choose to have their cases heard by
the Student Conduct Committee,
which comprises students and
faculty, or by the Student Honor
Court, where faculty only partici-
pate as witnesses.
Other venues for hearing cases
include an administrative hearing,
a resolution meeting with faculty
and students, or student conduct
committees at the Health Science
Center and the Levin College of
Law.
The Senate suggested removing
the honor court and administrative
hearings because they did not have
adequate faculty and student repre-


sentation, respectively.
Gene Zdziarski, dean of stu-
dents and co-chair of the Senate
committee that made the sugges-


tions, said another concern was the
low number of cases heard by the
honor court.
In the last six years, the court


handled 22 of 1,095 academic dis-
honesty cases at UF, Zdziarski said.
Faculty members and students
said the court setting was inap-

propriate for most of the cases,
and it generally created hostility,
he added.
But some students expressed
displeasure with the possible re-
moval of the court.
Fairuze Sofia, a third year UF
law student and the court's chief
defense counsel, said she thinks
faculty members wanted to remove
the court because they felt-slighted
by their lack of involvement.
"The whole point of honor court
is to give students a fair hearing,"
Sofia said. "Other processes might
not help much if a teacher already
thinks a student is guilty."
In addition, Yooni Yi, Student
Body President Ryan Moseley's
chief of staff, and Vanessa Goodwin,
Student Body vice president, pre-
sented Student Governments con-
cerns and suggestions.
SG's recommendations, which
will also be sent to Telles-Irvin, sug-
gested reforms to the court instead
of its removal.
Possible changes included ap-
pointing faculty advisers to the
student attorneys and having the
Dean of Students Office review the
cases.
"We're not saying the Student
Honor Court doesn't have prob-
lems, because it does," Goodwin
said. "But it has been a part of us
since 1914."

UF celebrates


Gatorade history

* A CEREMONY WILL BE HELD OUTSIDE THE
O'CONNELL CENTER TODAY.

By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

Like a lime-green, sticky flagship, Gatorade led UF
to research greatness.
Now, after enjoying more than 40 years of electro-
lyte-laced hydration, UF is venerating the drink with a
historical marker and a ceremony outside the O'Connell
Center today at 1:30 p.m.
The dedication will be the first in a series of three-
foot-tall markers to honor UF's triumphs in research,
service and education, states a memo from UF's History
Advisory Council to UF's deans, directors and depart-
ment chairs.
About 200 people were invited to the event, includ-
ing Gatorade's original researchers.
The historical marker program is sponsored by
the UF Alumni Association, and the first marker cost
$1,460, said Carl Van Ness, UF's historian.
"When it came time to pick the first one, Gatorade
was easy," Van Ness said. "It combines everything-in-
novation, research and, of course, the sports program."
Sweet roots
In 1965, four researchers in UF's College of Medicine
created a drink to replenish fluids, electrolytes and carbo-
hydrates lost during exercise or sports.
Van Ness said the UF football team first tested the
drink during practice.
O n The first time players guzzled it during
Campus a game was when UF played then-fifth-
ranked Louisiana State University, he said.
"We were heavy underdogs, but we
ended up beating them," he said. "We outlasted them."
Van Ness said LSU team members and spectators
were amazed by the amount of energy the Gators team
sustained throughout the game.

Rewards and concerns
The rest is Gatorade history, and UF still reaps the
monetary benefits of sweet, liquid success.
Over the last five years, UF received about $12.58
million in royalties from Gatorade sales, wrote Steve
Orlando, UF spokesman, in an e-mail.
But that piece of the pie could crumble if national
health regulations call for public schools to remove the
sports drink from their cafeterias.
Sen. Tom Harkin, a Democrat who represents Iowa,
recently introduced a bill that would set new nutritional
standards in public schools, according to a report from
The Washington Post.
Public health advocates are pushing to ban sports
drinks and sweetened waters, citing high sugar, sodium
and calories as nutritional downfalls.
Janis Mena, GatorWell Health Promotion Services nu-
tritionist, said removing Gatorade from school cafeterias
could help curb obesity at a young age.
Gatorade wasn't created for children, Mena said.
Even when used during exercise, it should be diluted
and consumed in small amounts.
Orlando said UF officials would not comment about
whether stopping sales of the drink at elementary or high
schools could severely hurt UF's revenue but said UF
would certainly not remove Gatorade from campus.

Making history
UF hopes to erect three to four historical markers on
campus each year, Van Ness said.
The next two will commemorate UF's Everglades
research and the UF Baldwin Library of Historical
Children's Literature.
He said the idea for the marker program came from a
similar one at Penn State University.
Like Penn State, UF will eventually offer walking
tours from marker to marker around campus to show-
case UF's historical contributions, he said.
He said he couldn't estimate how many posts might
someday dot UF's campus because the number will con-
tinually grow.
"As long as we keep making history, we'll continue to
put in historical markers," Van Ness said.


All Dressed Up And Nowhere To Go

STUDENT LIFE

Fly-fishing brings students together


By ILEANA MORALES
Alligator Writer
imorales@alligator.org


Seven UF students will drive 10 hours
today to go fishing.
The students are members of the UF
Fly-Fishing Club, and they're heading
to North Carolina, where the fishing is
good.
Brian Kasten, the Fly-Fishing Club
president, said fly-fishing is the old-fash-
ioned way to fish.
He started the dub because he didn't
want to make the long trips for fishing by
himself. The dub has 27 active members.
Kasten said he has been fishing since
he was 10 years old and taught himself
how to cast.
Now he's teaching novice fishermen
the special casting style of fly-fishing
over on the fields by Hull Road on UF's
campus.
"It's more difficult so it's more re-
warding when you catch something,"
said Kasten, a UF biology junior.
One of the main differences between
fly-fishing and regular fishing is the
equipment, he said.
For fly-fishing rods, the fishing line is
thick and bright green instead of a clear.
"We give the fish every single advan-
tage," he said.
Fly-fishermen also use waders spe-
cial pants used when they stand in the
water and waterproof boots.
He said living in Florida is a bar-
rier for practicing the sport he loves. So
the group travels to places like North
Carolina and Georgia.
Kasten and the six other students will
spend the weekend in a riverside cabin
owned by Davidson River Outfitters. The
cabin is about 20 miles from any grocery
store, he said.
The group will spend eight-hour days


fly-fishing for rainbow trout on a private
river.
Kasten said as a student group, they
have been welcomed by different fish-
ing outfitters and been given special
discounts. For Kasten, that's another
advantage of the club.
"Fly-fishing could be a very expensive
sport kids won't be able to do without an


outlet like this," Kasten said.
Kyle Humphreys, vice president of
the Fly-Fishing Club, said fishing loca-
tions charge about $160 a day per person
to fish. For him, fly-fishing is more spe-
cial than regular fishing.
"The casting in itself is very neat,"
Humphreys said. "It's almost like an
art."

Small changes can help reduce water consumption


* CHANGING SPRINKLER
SCHEDULES CAN HELP.

By STEVEN WEINER
Alligator Writer

UF researchers have found
that going green to protect the
water supply doesn't mean sac-
rificing a green lawn.
Two recent studies from
UF's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences reveal that
simple changes to lawn-watering
practices can drastically reduce
water use..
Researchers found that hom-
eowners could save a significant
amount of water and money by
changing automated sprinkler
schedules and using soil mois-
ture-sensor technology.
The sensor can monitor how
much moisture is in the grass'
roots and shut off the lawn's ir-
rigation system accordingly.
Melissa Baum Haley, research
coordinator and a graduate stu-
dent in the department of agri-
cultural and biological engineer-
ing, worked with seven other
researchers on the studies, which
were led by Michael Dukes, as-
sociate professor of agricultural
and biological engineering.
For the first study, the research
team worked with 27 Florida ho-
meowners to determine the best
settings for automated in-ground
sprinkler systems.
The team concluded that ho-
meowners could cut monthly
water usage by 30 percent by


changing their sprinkler settings
seasonally.
The average amount of water
saved for the homes in the study
was 13,000 gallons per month.
These changes would be easy
to implement, Haley said.
_---
~


The study also found that ho-
meowners who used short-range
sprinklers on ornamental plants
along with the adjusted watering
schedule cut water usage in half.
In its second study, the team
asked if soil-moisture sensors


could also be used to control the
amount of water a lawn receives.
A soil-moisture sensor is a
small device placed in the dirt
beneath the root bed of the grass.
By testing a variety of mois-
ture sensors on the market, the

team found that it conserved an
average of 69 to 92 percent of
water.
In both studies, the lawns
undergoing the experiments
remained healthy and green, in-
dicating that less water did not
decrease plant health.
These studies also indicate
that most people are significantly
overwatering their lawns.
Haley compared the grass root
zone, where grass absorbs water,
to a gas tank.
Although people may think
more water will equate to health-
ier grass, like a gas tank, the root
zone can only hold so much.
"By irrigating for one or two
or three hours, you're not going
to have more water stored in that
root zone," she said.
Haley said 45 minutes is more
than enough time to water any
one area.
As Florida continues to grow
at breakneck speed, the need for
water conservation will increase,
she said.
As the state's population in-
creases, construction of family
housing increases.
These houses will most likely
come with automated sprinkler
systems.
If every house with these
automated systems adopted the
seasonal scheduling changes,
enormous amounts of water
would be saved, Haley said.
She encouraged homeowners
to look into making these chang-
es and being more responsible
about water conservation.


Irrigation Revelation: UF researchers have found that homeowners can save money by saving water. Here's a breakdown of the research by the numbers.
3 0% amount seasonal water usage will be cut by resetting automated sprinkler systems 6 9-92% amount of water usage cut by .utilizing soil moisture sensors
2 0% amount of water saved by utilizing a drip irrigation system with ornamental plants 1 3.0 0 0 amount of gallons of water per month saved by homeowners who changed their

SFCC student organizes campus self-defense panel


* STEPS FOR'VICTIM SUP-
PORT WERE DISCUSSED.

By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org

When walking alone at night,
stick to well-lit areas. Keep your
hands empty. Be aware of your
surroundings.
But above all, don't talk on
your cell phone, Cpl. Jaime
Kurnick of the Gainesville Police
Department said at the Safety
101 Panel Discussion at SFCC on
Thursday night.
The panel also included speak-
ers on sexual abuse, domestic
abuse, UF resources for students


and self-defense.
The panel was put on by
Dianna Ordway, a SFCC stu-
dent, as an assignment for the
Community Advocates Program,
a seven-week course that bridges
students to the community.
Her assignment was to do a
safety or crime prevention pro-
gram, she said. Though she's
been planning it for weeks, re-
cent assaults in Gainesville have
made topics of rape, self-defense
and victims' services appropri-
ate, she said.
The program had special
meaning to Ordway, who said
she was sexually abused as a
child.
She said she wanted others to
know about resources that she


did not.
Kurnick said at the panel that
people should not hesitate to call
police when they see something


suspicious.
"We want to
Santa Fe
Community
College


be bothered. We
want to know
what's happen-
ing. We want
people to be
safe," she said.


Tanja van der Veen, a victim's
advocate with UF, brought up
safety resources offered by the
university, such as the Student
Nighttime Auxiliary Patrol van
service and the blue-light poles
on campus.
Women can also participate in
a free three-day Rape Aggression
Defense course, she said, of-


fered once a month through the
University Police Department.
Denise Guerin, a self-defense
instructor at SFCC, also suggest-
ed a self-defense course being of-
fered at Unified Training Center.
Laura Kalt of the Alachua
County Rape Crisis Center, sug-
gested what to do in case a crime
does occur.
-"First and foremost is to
believe that person," she said.
Victims also need to know the
crime is not their fault, talk to
a professional and see a doctor,
she said.
The first 48 hours to 72 hours
after the crime are the most
crucial for getting evidence, she
said, when many victims are still
unsure of whether to report the


crime.
In Alachua County, she said,
victims can now get a forensic
exam immediately and take 90
days to decide whether to submit
any evidence.
Policies have also changed
, in regards to domestic violence,
GPD Detective Bruce Ferris said.
"There was a time when an of-
ficer would show up and there'd
be a woman beaten up, and he'd
say, 'Johnny, quit drinking and go
stay at Bubba's house tonight,'"
he said.
Now, GPD has a Domestic
Violence Unit, which Ferris
works with, dealing only with
domestic abuse.
"Nobody has the right to hurt
anybody else," he said.

come from state-appropriated fund-
ing, Morgan said.
"It's all based on a market
analysis to ensure we're pay-
ing our president fairly."'
Dianna Morgan
chairwoman of UF's Board of Trustees


The rest is funded by UF's athlet-
ic program and the UF Foundation,
the institution that handles dona-
tions to UF, she said.
"When you think about the fact
that UF is a $4.3 billion enterprise
rivaling some of the largest compa-
nies in the nation, it's a very com-
plex institution," Morgan said.
Given UF's wide scope of educa-
tional programs, as well as a major
health science program and hospi-


tal, she said Machen's compensation
is appropriate.
The board determined his sal-
ary by researching similar institu-
tions in the nation and in the state,
Morgan said.
She said parts of his salary are
only paid if he meets certain goals,
which are laid out by the board.
Most of Machen's goals this
year were focused on cutting uni-
versitywide costs and reducing the
budget.
UF has to cut $34 million from its
budget because of a recent tax-rev-
enue shortfall.
His contract covers five years
with a provision to extend it for an
additional three, Morgan said.
Machen assumed his position at
UF in January 2004.
Given UF's recent budget woes,
Morgan said it's even more impor-
tant to have a competent president.
She added that UF would not
consider lowering Machen's salary
to compensate for budget shortfalls.
"When times are tough, as they
are, I think it's more important that
you have great leadership," Morgan
said. "That's when you need the
very best."

ia Rutgers to test undefeated UF


Casey Brooke Lawson / Alligator
UF forward Chandler Parsons rebounds during UF's 105-51 victory
over North Carolina Central on Wednesday at the O'Connell Center.


By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
dklein@alligator.org

For one Gators player, Saturday's matchup
against Rutgers is turning into a family affair.
As the 7 p.m. tipoff nears, UF freshman Chandler
Parsons is fully aware that his grandfather will be in
Gainesville, and in the wrong locker room.
Parsons' grandfather, Don Parsons, played for
Rutgers from 1946-1950 and was a sixth-round draft
pick of the New York Knicks.
"He'll definitely be there in the (Rutgers) locker
room," Parsons said. "He was bothering me, but
I'm not a New Jersey guy. I'm not about all that cold
weather."
Parsons said his grandfather tried to push him
to go to Rutgers, but in the end the decision was a
no-brainer.
"Florida's the best place to be," Parsons said. "I
know he played there, he did his thing there. But I'm
a Gator, and I'm proud of it."
When asked if his grandfather would use his rela-
tionship against him to help Rutgers prepare for the
6-foot-9 forward, Parsons said he hoped not.
"That would be dirty if he did, but I doubt it," he
said.
Parsons is coming off an impressive performance
against North Carolina Central, where he led the
Gators with 22 points, grabbed eight rebounds and
dished out seven assists in 18 minutes.
Parsons said Rutgers (3-0) poses the biggest chal-
lenge for the young Gators squad (3-0).
"They're a great team," Parsons said. "The Big
East is a great conference. ... We'll be ready for
Rutgers."
UF coach Billy Donovan seconded the notion.
"Certainly the most talented team we're playing
up to this point is Rutgers," Donovan said. "That's
going to be a heck of challenge for us on Saturday."
As part of the Blue Ribbon Challenge, Rutgers
and UF have both played the same opponents thus


far. Although both are undefeated against the bunch,
Rutgers barely edged Tennessee Tech 70-64 at home,
whereas the Gators dominated the same Golden
Eagles team 93-65.
Rutgers is averaging only 74 points per game dur-
ing the event, compared to the Gators' 91.
The Gators have impressed Donovan so far. After
UF's 105-51 win against North Carolina Central,
Donovan said that although the competition has
been minimal, he's proud of the way his team has
played.

"I'm very happy with how we've shot the
ball, and how we've passed the basket-
ball so far. It's encouraging to see them
play together."
Billy Donovan
UF men's basketball coach


"I thought the last two games they had a reason
to feel good about themselves," he said. "I think that
if I was sitting up here telling you our team came
out complacent, selfish and didn't play together,
you know what, I would be upset. I would be saying
there was youthfulness, but after this game I can say
we've showed some maturity, which is good to see."
The Gators are averaging almost 21 assists per
contest so far, a trend Donovan thinks has been the
key to their early season success.
-"I'm very happy with how we've shot the ball,
and how we've passed the basketball so far,"
Donovan said. "It's encouraging to see them play
together."
After breaking a school record for consecutive
wins at home against Tennessee Tech last Sunday,
the Gators will aim for a new milestone in Saturday's
contest.
With a win, Donovan will have 300 career victo-
ries, 265 of which he amassed during his tenure at
UF


Gators head to Nebraska for season's first road game


* BROOKS HOPES TO IMPROVE ON
POOR SHOOTING PERFORMANCE.

By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

The UF women's basketball team is go-
ing to find out this weekend if it can play
as well on the road as it has at home.
The Gators (2-0) travel to Nebraska for
their first road game Saturday at 6:05 p.m.
The Cornhuskers (2-0) are coming off an
80-59 victory against another Southeastern
Conference team, Mississippi, which was
projected to finish higher than UF in the


conference's preseason polls.
Players and coaches talked about the
importance of staying focused while play-
ing away from home.
"You can't be distracted by sleeping in
a hotel," UF coach Amanda Butler said.
"You can't be distracted by travel and just
things that are different from our day-to-
day routine."
Senior guard Depree Bowden hopes
to help talk her team through the hostile
environment.
"There's going to be a lot of fans and
everyone's going to be against us," she
said. "We gotta keep together as a team
and just try to be a family."


After a scoreless 0-for-10 shooting night
against Robert Morris on Monday, junior
guard Sha Brooks put in some extra shoot-
ing time before each prac-
tice in an attempt to im-
prove against Nebraska.
Women's. "I most certainly don't
want to have another
Basketball game like I did the other
day," Brooks said. "I was
getting good shots, they just wouldn't fall.
You have bad games like that."
The game poses yet another challenge
in the post for the Gators.
Cornhuskers senior Danielle Page
earned Big 12 Conference Player of the


Week honors Monday after totaling 24
-points and averaging 8.5 rebounds in her
first two games.
The 6-foot-2 forward came off the bench
against the Gators in the Cornhuskers' 81-
73 victory last season and scored 15 points
and added seven rebounds in just 18 min-
utes.
Meanwhile, junior forward Marshae
Dotson comes off one of the better games
of her career, racking up 25 points and 16
rebounds against Robert Morris.
Butler looks to the team's experience
against high-quality post players to help
them through yet another frontcourt chal-

Abdullah hits scoring stride in time for NCAA Tournament


By KARL HYPPOLITE
." Alligator Writer

Finally, there's been an
Ameera Abdullah sighting.
After a quiet season offen-
sively, it appears the preseason
first-team All-Southeastern
Conference player is regaining
her 2Q06 form.
Abdullah scored two goals in
UF's 4-1 win over Georgiarin'the


SEC title game.
.It was the first multiple-score
game of the year for the junior,
who finished the regular season
with just two scores.
The third-seeded Gators
open the NCAA Tournament at
7 tonight against Miami, and
Abdullah is expected to play a
major role offensively.
UF features three players who
have'scored at least seven goals


this season.
If Abdullah can recapture
the offensive
aggression she
displayed in
her sophomore
season when
she scored 11
S goals, it would
make the Gators
Abdullah even tougher to
defend.


"On any given day, anyone
can score," forward Ashlee Elliott
said. "Shana (Hudson) scored,
I've scored, Lauren Hyde's
scored. Honestly, you can't scout
this team, because we're all ca-
pable of scoring and we can score
from anywhere on the field.
"Ameera scoring is an awe-
some thing. I'm glad she got
those goals because if she takes
it into the NCAAs, she could be


unstoppable."
In a way, it seems Abdullah's
season is just beginning.
The Denver native injured
her left peroneal tendon in the
third match of the season against
South Florida.
The injury caused Abdullah
to miss the Gators' next four
matches.
Though she returned to the

UF VOLLEYBALL

Gators intend to say goodbye to seniors with ceremony


By EVAN DREXLER
-. Alligator Writer

When the UF volleyball team
takes the court Sunday for its last
home match of the regular season,
the Gators might have a hard time
keeping it together.
That's because UF will hold a
post-match ceremony to say good-
bye io seniors Marcie Hampton,
Kisya Killingsworth, Amber McCray
and Angie McGinnis, whose names
litter the school's record book.
"Any one of those four could be
the poster child for our program,
and you would stand here and be so
proud of it," Coach Mary Wise said.


They'll wrap up their home
regular-season careers when the No.
7 Gators (24-1, 17-1 Southeastern
Conference) play tonight at 7 against
Alabama (15-12,12-6 SEC) and then
Sunday against Mississippi State
(12-15, 7-11) at 1:30 p.m.
"It's crazy, because I remember
my freshman year watching the four
seniors go, and it was like, 'Wow,
that day is so far away for me,'"
fifth-year senior Amber McCray
said. "It's amazing just how quickly
time passed, and that day is here."
Now that she'll be playing in her
last matches, she has mixed emo-
tions.
"It's a joyous day, but it's sad,


too, because you love playing, in the
O'Dome, and I'm definitely going to
miss it," McCray said.
"Any one of those four
could be the poster child
for our program, and you
would stand here and be
so proud of it."
Mary Wise
UF volleyball coach


During her career, she has won
five SEC championships and was
a member of the team that played


in the 2003 national semifinals, but
what she'll remember most is her
teammates.
"I got a chance to play with three
other amazing players, amazing
women, and just being able to reflect
on our careers that we've had here,
I think is a huge deal for us and
everyone else," McCray said. "You
can't explain it. It's a bond like no
other and I'm happy to be a part
of it."
Hampton has been described as
the face of UF volleyball, starting
strong by making SEC All-Freshman
team in 2004 and working her way
into the record books in four years.
Killingsworth has been a force


ir her four years here, as well, and
made the All-SEC first team in 2005.
McGinnis earned a starting role
in her first season, acquired the most
assists in UF history by a setter and
took home SEC Player of the Year
honors last season.
Put all that together, and you
have one of the best senior classes in
Gators history.
Libero Elyse Cusack, a sopho-
more, knows she'll cry when the
seniors are saying their goodbyes to
the O'Connell Center crowd.
"This senior class has been amaz-
ing," Cusack said. "They're all great
people, they're great teammates, and
I'm going to miss each of them."


Last season's 13-game losing skid began with Huskers


Recruits sign


letters of intent

By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Writer

True, one of the greatest senior classes in UF volleyball
history is leaving school after this season.
But the volleyball program announced it is reloading
Wednesday, as an outstanding class of recruits signed
national letters of intent for next season.
"This group has the same opportunity to leave their
mark all over our program before they're done," UF coach
Mary Wise said. "We're excited about getting them all."
The class includes PrepVolleyball.com's overall No.
1-ranked player, setter and outside hitter Kelly Murphy,
who comes from Joliet Catholic Academy in Joliet, I.
Wise said Murphy will likely see action both as a setter
,. and a hitter.
Her list of achievements is well worth drooling over
for Gators fans: Her high school won regional crowns all
four years, she helped the USA Junior National Team to a
fourth-place finish at the 2007 FIVB Junior National World
Championships and she helped her team win national
titles in the 2007 and 2006 Junior Olympics.
Middle blocker Cassie Anderson signed from
Bakersfield High in California.
Wise sees Anderson being one of the
quickest middle blockers in UF history
and someone the setters will look for-
ward to assisting.
Volleyball "Cassie will remind people of per-
Volleyball haps Kelsey Bowers in being very elite
off one foot," Wise said.
Anderson will be joined in the middle with 6-foot-2
Betsy Smith from Wesleyan School in Atlanta, who won
state titles in all four years of high school.
Smith also played on the Junior National A2 squad
with UF freshman Kristy Jaeckel, who is redshirting this
season, so there should be some chemistry present when
they start to play.
"They got to be good buddies, and Kristy, because she
was redshirted, goes right into that class, and that is an-
other added bonus of that class," Wise said.
Rounding out the class is pure setter Cindy Bathelt,
who comes to Gainesville from Pine Creek High School in
Colorado Springs, Colo.
Bathelt will likely split time setting with current UF
sophomore Alli Cecchini. In a phone interview, Bathelt
said she was heavily recruited by Louisiana State and
Washington State, but chose UF knowing she would get
to play with athletes who could kill the ball.
"I expect to get a lot sharper, and just to grow and be-
come a more seasoned player," she said.
She had not spoken with any of. the other recruits as of
Thursday night, but said she will when all four have their
official visit to Gainesville today.
"From all the hype I've been hearing ... I'm really ex-
cited about it."

lenge.
In the team's 82-71 win against Xavier, the Gators
gave up 21 points to star forward Amber Harris but
held freshman Ta'Shia Phillips to just 6.
"It's definitely something that we hope we can
draw some confidence from," Butler said.
But the Cornhuskers will push the ball, as well, and
like the up-tempo style of play.
Last year's loss to the Cornhuskers, the teams'
first-ever meeting, began the downward spiral for UF,


which ended in a school-record 13-game losing streak.
The team hopes things will be different this season,
and two solid home wins show the
Gators are certainly capable of pro-
ducing a positive result.
Now it's up to UF to execute on
an opponent's floor.
"Keep the Gator mentality," ju-
nior guard Kim Critton said. "We
Critton gotta bring all our thoughts and
things we learned on the road with
to see if we can bring back a W."


Forward regains confidence after recovering from injury


SOCCER, from page 18

lineup, Abdullah never appeared
to regain the explosiveness that
made her so dangerous.
Abdullah didn't score her first
goal of the season until Oct. 21 in a
match against Alabama.
Following Sunday's outburst,
Abdullah feels she's fully recov-
ered from her injury.
"It's a real confidence booster,"
Abdullah said. "I've obviously
been pretty average this year and
having that type of game kind of
sends me back to the level I'm used
to playing at. I definitely like how
I'm playing now."
After missing four games and
multiple practices, Abdullah had
to readjust to the game's speed.
She readily admits her reactions
were slower than in prior seasons.
"My reaction to a lot of things
was slower," Abdullah said. "My
preparation for when a ball got
sent to me was a little behind.
And how comfortable I was with
my body and my ankle wasn't the
strongest, so I was cautious when I
got the ball."
Abdullah's return to form could
be a deciding factor for a team
hungry to stay alive this weekend.
UF is currently on a 12-game
winning streak, despite getting
little production from Abdullah
offensively.
Adding her to the mix may
put the team over the top, and UF
coach Becky Burleigh appears ex-
cited by that.


"She's been playing well for
us," Burleigh said. "She hasn't
been scoring as much, but she's
been doing other things. For her to
get on the board offensively makes
us that more dangerous of a team.


And if you look at who scored for
us on Sunday, it's the big three in
terms of our offense, Ameera, Stacy
(Bishop) and KeLeigh (Hudson). I
think that's a pretty intimidating
group for us."

UF FOOTBALL

Early recruiting class has makings of nation's best


By ROBERT CALLOVI
Alligator Writer

At this time last year, the UF football
team's recruiting class had 14 oral commit-
ments and arguably the best class in the
nation.
Unfortunately for the Gators, they
haven't been able to generate that same kind
of early success this season.
But even with fewer players, the 2008
recruiting class could turn out to be one of
the best in the country by National Signing
Day on Feb. 6.
"It will be a good class," said Scout.com
recruiting analyst Jamie Newberg. "Overall,
it is going to be another great group."
UF has already added talent and depth
where it needs it most its struggling de-
fensive back corps.
The Gators landed commitments from
two safeties Jersey City (N.J.) St. Peter's
Prep star Will Hill and Auburn (Ala.) High's


Dee Finley, who are ranked as the nation's
top two, respectively, at the position by
Scout.com.
UF also added a pair of in-state corner-
backs Pahokee High's Janoris Jenkins and
Orlando Boone High's Jeremy Brown..
Jenkins and Brown are rated the Nos. 9
and 16 corners in the country, respectively.
"Defensive back has to be one of the
class's biggest strengths," Newberg said.
"That is their biggest need, especially at
cornerback."
Almost all of the Gators' commits have
been on the defensive side of the ball.
Besides the defensive backs, UF has
gotten oral commits from three defensive
linemen Chaz Sutton, Troy Epps and
Earl Okine and from five-star linebacker
Brendan Beal.
St. Augustine High's Caleb Sturgis, the
nation's third-rated kicker, also committed.
With an already-loaded arsenal of offen-
sive weapons, the Gators aren't in need of a
lot of recruits on offense.


And with a limited amount of scholar-
ships available, UF is unlikely to sign many
players on that side of the ball.
"The Gators will fill their needs, because
they just don't have the number of scholar-
ships they have had in the past," Newberg
said.
"The Gators will fill their needs,
because they just don't have the
number of scholarships they have
had in the past."
Jamie Newberg
Scout.com recruiting analyst

The only offensive player to commit to
the Gators so far is Savannah (Ga.) Jenkins
High running back Franklin Green, rated
No. 29 at the position.
Most of the nation's top recruits have
already committed to a school, but there are
still a few players shopping their services.


Among those still considering VF are
quarterback Terrelle Pryor, running back
Darrell Scott, linebacker Arthur Brown and
cornerback Patrick Johnson, all of whom are
the top players at their positions.
One of the nation's top offensive tack-
les, Matt Patchan, is also considering the
Gators, and he will have to make his deci-
sion shortly.
Patchan will graduate this falflfrom
Seffner Armwood High and enroll at his
school of choice for the spring semester.
Patchan is deciding between UF, LSU and
Miami, where his father also named Matt
- played in the late 1980s.
Facing top competition is a major concern
for Patchan.
"The biggest thing is talent on both sides
of the ball to help me develop in practice,"
said Patchan, who said he will announce his
decision some time after Dec. 15. "I want the
talent already there, wherever I go. I want
to be playing against first-rounders every
day."


Young Saints look to avenge worst loss in two years


* SANTA FE WILL START
FOUR FRESHMEN.

By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer

Santa Fe will try to avenge a
75-58 loss at the hands of Indian
River Community College when the
Saints take the floor Saturday.
"I think we'll play much better
than we did 10 days ago," SFCC
coach Chris Mowry said.
SFCC (2-2), which starts four
freshmen, will have its hands full


at home with an experienced IRCC
squad (4-0) that will have five soph-
omores on the floor for a 4 p.m. start.
Leading IRCC will be sophomore
point guard Marvin Gray, who was
averaging 14.3 points along with
10.7 assists per game.
"He's really fast, really quick and
very hard to guard one on one,"
Mowry said. "We have to move
our feet, help out and recover when
we're beat."
Mowry pointed to three areas of
concern for the Saints on Saturday:
defensive transition, containing the
basketball and taking care of the ball


on offense.
"I don't know that we're trying
to do anything different, just better,"
Mowry said.


Santa Fe
Community
College


When the
teams played in
Fort Pierce, IRCC
got off to a fast
start by hitting
three of their first


four field goals.
"They kind of punched us in the
nose, and we didn't respond well,"
Mowry said.
Now SFCC will try to respond
after a 17-point loss at the hands of


IRCC, their largest margin of defeat
in more than two years.
SFCC consistently ranks among
the top teams in the state in three-
point attempts, a trend that was on
display Monday against the Tampa
Swish when the Saints hoisted 26
threes on their way to 35 percent
shooting from beyond the arc.
The key for the Saints might be
how well they are able to convert on
their three-point opportunities.
Mowry plans to stick with his
usual 10-man rotation and expects
more big-time contributions from a
bench that scored 51 points in the


last game.
"Our leading scorer came off the
bench last season," Mowry said. "If
we didn't think they could help us
win, they wouldn't play."
Mowry is going to need all 10 of
his players, eight of them freshmen,
to show experience beyond their
years if the Saints are going to hand
undefeated Indian River its first loss
of the season.
"Imagine if Florida was out there
playing a [Southeastern Conference]
school with five returning starters,"
Mowry said. "That's the challenge
we're up against.

Gators consider ..y -


effects of injuries '


By MIKE MCCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alligator.org

Maurkice Pouncey may under-
stand more than anyone how much
one injury can impact a football
team.
The right guard was injected into
the offensive line when senior Phil
Trautwein suffered a season-end-
ing stress fracture during preseason
workouts.
Pouncey himself suffered a high-
ankle sprain against South Carolina,
but he is expected to see consider-
able playing time against Florida
Atlantic this Saturday.
Dealing with injuries is as much a
part of a college football player's life
as the playbook, and players spend
countless hours devoted to getting
healthy for an upcoming game.
When the aches and pains pile
up again, the players just repeat the
cycle.
It's a rough routine, but the long-
term effects of the process can be
truly horrific. A football career can
leave a player's body in ruins and
result in brain damage, crippling or
even death.
Looking that far down the road
can be difficult in college, especially
for members of the UF football team,
who are locked in a heated battle for
the Southeastern Conference crown.
"It's a tremendous concern," UF
wide receiver Percy Harvin said.
"Just playing sports, you have to
treat yourself like a professional


athlete."
Harvin, a sophomore, has sus-
tained several injuries since arriving
in Gainesville, including tendinitis
in his heel that slowed him for sev-
eral weeks.
"I had bad tendonitis earlier this
year that came from last season," he
said. "I just kept blowing it off and it
came back to haunt me this year."
It took a talk with some team
trainers to make Harvin realize the
potential consequences of his injury,
he said.
"My trainer told me that some-
thing like that happened to (NFL de-
fensive end) Simeon
Rice, that he kept
putting it off to the
side and it came back
Football to get him," Harvin
said. "The trainers
always told me that
even if I have a little nick and I
think it's nothing, to get it treated
anyway."
The team's trainers and doc-
tors must do more than just treat
injuries.
Dr. Peter Indelicato, head physi-
cian for the UF Athletic Association,
said it is always tough to tell an ath-
lete he is unable to play because of
health reasons.
"Often there is a player who
wants to play, but you feel that it
isn't in their best interests to play,"
Indelicato said. "Sometimes they
find that difficult to accept initially,
but that's where you pull them in
the office and explain the risk-to-

years, Harvin has suffered several injuries that have forced him to miss practices and games.


benefit ratio to them.
"After they understand it better,
the vast majority of them are thank-
ful that there is somebody looking
after their interests."
While the players may get caught
up in the emotions of their season,
Indelicato and his staff must treat
them like any other patient.
"I think that we as doctors and
athletic trainers, that's our job, to
inform them of the potential conse-
quences of continuing their activi-
ties," he said. "It's no different than


any other patient that we have."
The consequences for some past
players have been dire. Many NFL
players sustain head, back or joint
injuries that leave them impaired
for life.
ESPN analyst Jesse Palmer, a
former Gators quarterback, can at-
test to the effects of a playing career
on a body.
Palmer, 29, said he gets pains in
his knees and back occasionally, de-
spite never injuring either seriously.
"It's easy to forget, especially in


this sport," he said. "You just take
your body for granted. It's impor-
tant that you take care of yourself,
do preventative things and listen to
the training staff."
After a brief career in the NFL,
Palmer knows -the potential harm
that can be done to a body.
"Everyone feels indestructible,
especially at this age in college,"
Palmer said. "You just feel like you
won't get hurt or that you are young
and can recover. At the end of the
day, it can come back sometimes."

Meyer, Zook could meet in bowl game


UF, Illinois both have three losses


By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
nzaccardi@alligator.org

Urban Meyer succeeded Ron Zook at
UF, but lately Zook has followed Meyer's
recipe for success while at Illinois.
They might chase each other down
and meet in a New Year's Day bowl
game, either the Capital One Bowl or the
Outback Bowl.
A potential matchup of Zook against
the school that fired him could be the
most talked- about non-BCS game of the
postseason, giving incentive to bowl or-
ganizers to make it happen.
"It's certainly intriguing and adds
something to it," said Steve Hogan,
the executive director of Florida Citrus
Sports, which runs the Capital One Bowl.
"We are always interested in who is the
highest-ranked team, got the best resume
and is going to give us the best game on
the field. That's No. 1 for us.
"After that, if there's an interesting
story like that, it just makes it that much
better."
Before the season, you could have
likened Illinois' chances of sniffing a
January bowl game to Tim Tebow's odds
of winning the Heisman Trophy.
But here we are.
UF and Illinois have the same amount
of losses, three, and are separated by


seven places in the latest BCS rankings.
The Capital One Bowl pits the No. 2 Big
Ten team against the No. 2 Southeastern
Conference team, unless the BCS nabs at-
large teams from the conferences.
The Outback Bowl gets the third pick
from each league and generally chooses
an SEC East team.
Both bowls have leeway in their picks
and can take any team within ane game
in the overall standings of the best avail-
able school.
"That would hurt Gator Nation a
lot, Zook coming here and beat-
ing us."
Andre Caldwell
UF wide reciever

Barring multiple upsets, a handful of
Big Ten and SEC teams will be available
to both bowl games.
But no other matchups carry the same
appeal as UF-Illinois.
"Would that create addition conver-
sation? Sure it would," said Jim McVay,
president and CEO of the Outback Bowl.
"We wouldn't try to match the teams un-
less they would be deserving. These are
deserving, good teams."
Like Meyer did at Bowling Green and
Utah, Zook has laid a foundation for foot-


ball success at basketball-driven Illinois
since taking over in 2005.
The Illini will play in a bowl game for
the first time since the 2001 season, and
with strong recruiting, they likely aren't
going to fold any time soon.-
Just last week, Zook joined Meyer as
the only coaches to beat Ohio State in the
last two years.
Everyone has taken notice, even the
bowl fortune-tellers.
ESPN.com and CBSSports.com have
Zook penciled in to face his former team
in Orlando.
A trip back to the Sunshine State for
Zook would aid recruiting and allow him
to see guys he recruited play their final
college game.
However, the Gators would have just
as much to lose as Zook has to gain.
UF athletics director Jeremy Foley,
who fired Zook before the end of the 2004
season, will not comment on possible
bowl matchups.
He will not talk about the humbling
possibility of losing to Zook.
But the players will.
"That would hurt Gator Nation a lot,
Zook coming here and beating us," said
wide receiver Andre Caldwell, one of the
few current Gators who played for Zook
in 2003 and 2004.
"He's a great coach, and he's made
them a great team. But we still think we
have the advantage with better players
and better athletes."

Caldwell looks for record with Harvin sitting out


FOOTBALL, from page 31


Meyer said. "We're playing a really.
good team that is competing for a con-
ference championship. I think our guys
are just game to game trying to get bet-
ter, and they're facing a good team."
Since the Georgia and Tennessee
games will be underway during the
Gators' game, there will be some con-
sider-able scoreboard-watching from
the UF sideline.
"I'll probably be peeking up there
to look and see what's going on,"
Caldwell said. "But I've got to focus on
what I have to do."


Caldwell is expected to make up
for the absence of star wideout Percy
Harvin for the second straight game.
Harvin did not practice this week,
and spent several days receiving IV
treatments in an in-
firmary.
Without Harvin in
the lineup, the Gators
will have to diverge
from the usual plan
on offense.
"It'll probably be a
Harvin lot of what you saw
at South Carolina getting the ball to
me a lot more and using some of our

ginning," Fake Howard said. "It wasn't the juggernaut that it
is now."
Fake Howard gave the show the spark it needed. Earlier this
year, Tim Hardaway went on the show and announced to the
world his hatred for gay people. But, in the end, the bread and
butter of the show is Fake Howard, who has actually spoken
with the real Howard in a couple of segments.
"If I were to talk to him again, I guess it would really be to
tell him to win a few games," said Fake Howard, who did the
entire phone interview in character. "I'm concerned that this
could be his final stop. If he doesn't start winning soon, he's
going to be out of the coaching ranks, which means I'm out of a
job doing my Fake Howard."
Fake Howard discussed everything from the greatness of
Urban Meyer to keeping Tim Tebow in check.
"Beverlee hasn't seen me much in the bed," Fake Howard
said. "I've been staying up late trying to figure out a way to
stop this guy."
Fake Howard picked the Owls to beat the Gators 2-0, and his
pre-game speech could spark his predicted upset.
"I'm going to tell them when you come out on that field and
see all those players, you just hoot, and that's the key to win-
ning-,-ust hoot," Fake Howard said. "They won't know what
hit them. They'll think that you're trying to play football. But
instead, I just want you to hoot. That's the advice I'd give them.
I'm all about the hoot."
If only the Gators gave a hoot-about FAU.


other weapons to take up the slack,"
Caldwell said.
Caldwell has set career highs in
catches in each of the last two games,
with nine against Vanderbilt and 11
against the Gamecocks. If he duplicates
that success Saturday, he can break
Carlos Alvarez's all-time receptions
mark at UF with nine catches.
Having Harvin out could help
Caldwell break the record, but it's a
trade he isn't happy to make.
"I'm never excited when [Harvin]
isn't in there," Caldwell said. "He takes
a lot of stress and a lot of pressure off
of me."


Onto the picks!
Leading off with a record of 58-42, which is worse than the
guest pickers combined, is alligatorSports.org Editor Brian
"Schnellenberger's their star safety, right?" Steele, whose butt
has turned rosy red from all those Telly Concepcion post-prac-
tice slaps that leave him smiling with glee.
In second at 57-43 is Sports Editor Bryan "I hate this
job" Jones, who is contemplating sleeping in and skipping
Saturday's game after his exhaustive week of work.
Next up with a record of 54-46 is Assistant Sports Editor
Jenna "I hate this job, too" Marina, who doesn't understand
how the Navy Midshipmen can play in those sailor uniforms.
Falling in fourth at 53-47 is Mike "I want to be a male mod-
el" McCall, whose no-shave November plan fell through when
an overzealous stylist encroached on his peach fuzz.
And rounding out this sorry group in dead-ass last place
with a piss-poor record of 49-51, that's right, under .500, is Nick
"Microsoft Office 2007 can go to hell and die" Zaccardi, who is
using that as the cover for the real reason he hates his new lap-
top it doesn't have the massive cache of shirtless Ron Zook
photos that lived on his old computer.

BASES, from page 31

This is the perfect opportunity for
them to dominate a game from begin-
ning to end. They've all had spurts.
It just hasn't happened for a complete
game yet.
Even though it is against a Sun Belt
Conference team, a dominating perfor-
mance would give this young defense
the confidence it needs heading into
bowl season, not to mention next sea-
son.
Players have continually said youth
is no longer an excuse this late in the
season.
The Gators will still win handily no
matter how the defense plays Tebow
alone will make sure of that but the
Owls don't have that bad of an offense.
It's at least up there with Troy, which
scored 24 points on UF in the second
half. While Tebow and the offense will
be able to rest in the second half, this de-
fense still needs to play with a fire.
The Gators have something to prove,
and it takes more than one half .to do
that. The smallest amount of points
they've allowed has been 3, and that was
in the season opener against Western
Kentucky. Sorry, doesn't count.
But this will, even if you don't stay
for the entire game.
The players won't know it initially,
but walking off your home field know-
ing that you are capable of dominating
someone gives you a sense of confidence
that wasn't there before.
Spikes has talked about "Florida
Defense" and the pride that comes with
that.
It's something that helped lead UF to
the championship last year, and if the
Gators are able to find it this year, you
can bet it'll help them win the champi-
onship next year.

Gators will eye SEC scoreboard Saturday


By MIKE MCCALL

No. 14 UF's matchup with Florida
Atlantic on Saturday won't be the most im-
portant game of the day for the Gators.
Instead, the games with the biggest


impact on UF's season will take place in
Athens, Ga., and Knoxville, Tenn., where
the two teams ahead of the Gators (7-3, 5-3
Southeastern Conference) in the race for the
SEC East will play.
Georgia (5-2 SEC) will host Kentucky
at 12:30 p.m., and Tennessee (4-2 SEC) will
welcome in-state foe Vanderbilt for a 2 p.m.

kickoff. a;
UF needs both the Bulldogs and
Volunteers to lose a conference game, and
if Georgia is successful this weekend, the
Gators' dreams of returning to the SEC
Championship Game will be crushed.
The magnitude of these games is almost
enough to overshadow UF's game against
FAU.
"There are some big games going on for
us with Georgia and Tennessee," receiver
Andre Caldwell said. "We need them to
lose, but every game we go into, we're play-
ing to win and blow a team out. You may
not think it's a big game, but it is to us."
"I always look at the talent level.
And this team has excellent talent
on defense. I compare them a lot to
Troy."
Urban Meyer
UF coach

The Owls (5-4, 4-1 Sun Belt) are locked
in a battle for the Sun Belt title with Troy,
whom UF defeated 59-31 in its second game
of the season.
The Gators are heavily favored in the
game, but they aren't overlooking FAU.
The Owls are comparable to the Trojans,
who outscored UF 24-10 in the second half.
"I always look at the talent level,-UF
coach Urban Meyer said. "And this team
has excellent talent on defense. I compare
them a lot to Troy."
Meyer isn't worried that his team will
take FAU lightly.

NCAA FOOTBALL

Florida Atlantic coach motivates Owls with reputation


A By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

Every time Florida Atlantic quar-
terback Rusty Smith has a chat with
Coach Howard Schnellenberger, he
sees them.
"On one hand there's the national
championship ring, on the other, the
Super Bowl ring," Smith said. "He
always has them on."
Schnellenberger hasn't won a
national championship during his
seven years at FAU, but if you peer
back into the early '80s before any
statewide team was regularly con-
tending for national titles you'll
see Schnellenberger as the architect
of the Miami football program.
He took over a Hurricanes pro-


gram in 1979 that was in shambles.
It was on the verge of being shut
down by administration.
Then, just four years later, Miami
won the national championship.
After deciding to leave Miami,
Schnellenberger went to Louisville,
and nearly did the same thing. The
Cardinals never won the national
championship, but Schnellenberger
did lead them to the program's first
national ranking and a 34-7 upset of
Alabama in the 1991 Fiesta Bowl.
"He's rebuilt the University of
Miami," said Smith, who has 20
touchdowns to seven interceptions
on the season. "He's rebuilt the
University of Louisville. Then FAU
came to him, and he said, 'How
awesome would it be to do some-
thing nobody's ever done before?'"


So far, so good.
FAU's football program started
in 2001, but the Owls are 5-4 and
4-1 in the Sun Belt Conference and
are on course to play Troy which
UF throttled 59-31 earlier this season
- for the conference title.
"I'Tve gotten to
develop a football
team the great-
est coaches in
America haven't
always had this
Opportunity. To
I get to do that in
Schnellenberger my senior years
was a great
motivating factor," the 73-year-old
Schnellenberger said. "There are
only a handful of coaches that have
ever had the opportunity to do


something like this: Steve Spurrier,
Bobby Bowden, Bear Bryant,
Woody Hayes. All these guys devel-
oped programs that came in on the
ground floor."
With more than 45 years in the
coaching field, his experience has
become invaluable to his players.
"Every time I see the rings, I can't
believe I'm playing for a legend,"
Smith said. "You're playing for a
guy that's experienced everything
there is to be experienced. You know
everything that he has in the play-
book is going to work."
When Smith was first recruited,
Schnellenberger took him into a
room and showed him pictures of
the quarterbacks he has coached.
Smith recalled seeing clips of Jim
Kelly and Bernie Kosar.


Schnellenberger contributed to
the Miami Dolphins' undefeated
team in 1972 as the offensive co-
ordinator. He then coached the
Baltimore Colts from 1973-74.
As if he doesn't already boast
an impressive track record, he was
also the offensive coordinator at
Alabama under Bear Bryant and
was part of three title teams.
That's where the rings come in.
After all these years, it's safe to
say Schnellenberger's earned them.
"Some people may think I'm
pretentious to do that," he said.
"But it's been a major asset for me to
recognize that I've been associated
with those kind of things, especially
when you're developing a tradition.
"It's important that I wear the
rings."


WR to miss second game


* PERCY HARVIN IS STILL
RECEIVING IV TREATMENTS.

By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
jmarina@alligator.org

UF wide receiver Percy Harvin will not
play against Florida Atlantic on Saturday.
He continued to undergo IV treatments as
he battles persistent migraines.
Coach Urban Meyer said the
sophomore was in the infirmary all day
Thursday, which makes his stay about
four days running.
Meyer said his parents came to
Gain ville three days ago to be with their
son.
-lie's feeling a little bit better," Meyer
said. "We're all hoping. ... I imagine
sometime we'll have a release, I guess."
Harvin was originally diagnosed with
a sinus infection and migraines more than
a week ago.
This is not the first time one of Meyer's
players has been incapacitated with mi-
graines.
During Meyer's tenure at Utah, the
team's captain, Morgan Scalley, also suf-
fered from headaches.


"I've seen them shut [a player] down
for four days before," Meyer said. "It's
awful."

POUNCEY TO PLAY: Even though Harvin
is out, the Gators did receive the
good news that right guard Maurkice
Pouncey will be able to play Saturday.
Pouncey suffered a high-ankle sprain
during the first quarter of the South
Carolina game last week and was ques-
tionable until Thursday.
"I've seen [migraines] shut
[a player] down for four days
before. It's awful."
Urban Meyer
UF football coach

"He had a great day today," Meyer
said. "He heals well and he works at it. He
spent all day in the training room. He did
a really good job."
Meyer wasn't sure if Pouncey would
return to his starting role. Pouncey will
likely split time with redshirt freshman
Marcus Gilbert.
"He's a guy that's stepped in, doing a
very nice job," Meyer said of Gilbert.

Haden handles first year's trials

Joe Haden's life is all about speed.
From his lightning-quick feet and
flashy cars to his rapid adjustments
and ever-changing roles on the football
field, everything about Haden seems to
be fast.
But months into his first season
with the Gators, the freshman sensa-
tion learned just how fast tragedy can
strike and just how quick one's life can
take a dramatic turn.
As the 18-year-old cornerback,
whom UF teammates refer to as "rock
star," continues to live his life in the fast
lane, he now has his own star to look
up to.
And as her inspiration lingers,
Haden attempts to put his grief behind
him and move on as quickly as ever.

no comparison. I think it's just kind of
a fad thing."
When Haden stumbled upon a 1997
Ford Crown Victoria that was already
painted Gators orange, it was love at
first sight.
Haden and his father pimped out
the car with 22-inch chrome rims, 12-
inch speakers and three television sets.
Haden's father said his son more
than earned it by performing well in
school as well as on the field.
"The amount of money I put into
that Crown Vic pales in comparison to
the money I saved on his education,"
Haden said.

In the early hours of Oct. 12, friend
and scout team quarterback Michael
Guilford decided to give Slonina a ride
home from a party on his motorcycle.
Guilford struck a median at high
speed on Old Archer Road and SW
23rd Terrace. The two died instantly.
Haden learned of the accident from
a teammate, and he frantically searched
to find out if Slonina was all right.
"I was like, 'Oh my God, what
hospital is she at?'" Haden said. "I was
calling around, calling every hospital
around here. And nobody knew. They
were like, 'There's no Ashleys at any of
these hospitals.'"
At around 3 a.m., Meyer called
Haden and broke the news.
Devastated, all Haden could do was
weep. He decided to head back home
to Maryland to take his mind off of the
tragedy.
"As a young man, this was Joe's
first personal tragedy," his father said.
"I just thank God it was a bye week and
he was able to be around the family.
Things like that you don't get over
it. You learn to live with it."
Haden's family didn't realize just
how dose he and Slonina were until he
returned home. But with the support of
his loved ones, Haden recovered.
Haden's mother, Zakiya, returned
to Gainesville with him and spent
about a week by his side. He had some-
thing else to help him keep his mind off
of Slonina's death: football.
Haden played the next week against
Kentucky and was satisfied with his
performance. In fact, in the weeks since
the accident, Haden has played some of
his best games for the Gators.
"It's therapeutic for him," Haden's
father said. "He said the hard part was
when he goes back to his dorm at night
the quiet moments."
But since then, Haden said he is no
longer haunted by that tragic night. He
said he knows Slonina is in a better
place.
He now uses his fond and loving
memories of her as inspiration.
"If anything, it made me work hard-
er," Haden said. "We never try to settle
anymore. We just try to do our best at
whatever we do. ... Tell everyone you
love that you love them. Don't try to
have any grudges. Just try to live life
good, becausV that's the way Ashley
did it."

'will not allow his team to drop another one at home.
