FAU 20 U UF59
UF out of SEC race despite milestone day
* ANDRE CALDWELL SET THE
SCHOOL RECORD FOR RECEPTIONS.
By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
Cornelius Ingram could have marveled
at many accomplishments, but he also
chose to focus on the one downer the
out-of-town scoreboard on an otherwise
upbeat Saturday at The Swamp.
Ingram scored twice as the Gators
steamrolled Florida Atlantic 59-20.
In the win, Tim Tebow became the first
player in NCAA history to throw for 20
touchdowns and rush for 20 more scores
in the same season.
Ingram's fellow wideout Andre
Caldwell (13 catches for 164 yards) made
history of his own, breaking the Gators'
single-season record for receptions, which
was previously held by Carlos Alvarez.
But Ingram admitted to peeking at
the scoreboard to receive updates on the

The Gators' season hung in the balance
350 miles north, in Athens, Ga.
"You try not to worry about it during
the course of the game, but going into
the season, we knew we wanted to be in
Atlanta," Ingram said.
Kentucky had to defeat Georgia to keep
UF in the running for the Southeastern
Division title and a trip
to the Georgia Dome to
play LSU for the SEC
So Ingram sweated it
out as the score flashed
every minute or so.

Out of 50 institutions, UF has

"Well gosh, you know, I think the
Taco Bell factor is really important
to a lot of people, so that's bound
to draw a big crowd," Orlando said
with a laugh.
The Web site states that a col-

factor in the rankings. It also states
that a high number of male vocal

Soldiers honored at game
Army Capt. Kyle Everage, Master Sgt. Steven Larner a
Lick stand on the field during Saturday's football game.
By KORI FREDERICK
The Ben Hill Griffin Stadium announcer's
voice could barely be heard over a five-minute
standing ovation that welcomed three soldiers to
Saturday's football game.
Capt. Kyle Everage, Master Sgt. Steven Lamer
and Staff Sgt. Jason Lick were honored for their
service in Iraq at the first timeout at Saturday's
football game. They also participated in the pre-
game coin toss.
The soldiers were part of Operation Tribute
to Freedom's "Welcome Back to School" initia-
tive, which recognizes students, faculty, staff and
alumni who have served in Iraq and welcomes
them back to school during sporting events and
other special programs.
Everage, a 2001 UF graduate, returned from
duty in Iraq in 2004. In Iraq, he worked as an
anti-tank and heavy-weapons platoon leader. He
earned the Bronze Star Medal and works as the
Florida National Guard liaison and recruiting of-
ficer for the UF Army ROTC.
Lamer returned from Iraq a year ago.
He has been a soldier for 18 years and also
wears the Bronze Star Medal. He is the senior
military instructor for the UF Army ROTC.
"It was very happy and also very
solemn knowing that a lot of soldiers
are still over there."-
Lick has been a soldier for more than 10 years,
including one year in Iraq. He is a member of the
Lick described his experience on Florida Field
on Saturday as "unbelievable." He said the Army
and the Gators are two of the most important
things in his life.

one of the students in attendance.

GatorWalk hits fundraising goal

When he was born almost three

weighed only 1 pound, 9 ounces.
But 28 months later, he sat smiling
in his stroller on Turlington Plaza with
his parents, Wilfredo and Anna Marie,
to thank the 1,100 people walking to
prevent premature birth.
The fourth annual GatorWalk,
which raises money for the March of
Dimes, took place Sunday with about
30 UF organizations participating.
The five-kilometer walk, which
kicked off at 1 p.m. on the plaza,
reached its fundraising goal of $100,000
- double the amount raised by the
event in 2006, said Sarah Criser, the

Paradigm Properties supported the
event by providing a 12-month lease
for a thre-bedroom apartment to the

The lease went to Julio Perez-
Downes, a UF student and a GatorWalk
director, who got a South Florida com-
pany to match the total amount raised
by other walkers.

a better cause."

The theme of this year's GatorWalk,
"Champions on the court, champions
on the field, it's time to be champions
for babies," encouraged UF students
to take action against premature birth,

March of Dimes assistant division
Trent said the chances of having a
premature baby are 33 percent greater
now than 20 years ago, when many
college students were born. Today, one
in eight babies is born prematurely.
She said she thinks college students
know they are walking for their future
.Trent said Gainesville contributes
about $900,000 to the March of Dimes
through events such as GatorWalk
and Gainesville WalkAmerica.
She said the goal for fundraising is $1
million, which she believes will hap-
pen soon partly because of GatorWalk's
If every UF student raised $100, she
said, the fundraising potential of the
event could be five times this year's

Machen's moolah is
through the roof
UF President Bernie Machen makes a lot of money
more than three-quarters of a million dollars.
He earns more than the president of the United States -
but one could argue Machen does more than George Bush.
Machen's base salary is $411,037, which isn't, ridiculous.
But the additional $315,812 he earns in bonuses is. Nearly
eight grand for an Audi, $75,000 for an annual bonus, and
almost $23,000 for retirement pay. That's funny we always
thought retirement pay was supposed to come out of your
The one that makes us say "Huh?" the loudest is a $210,000
retention bonus even though he is under contract.
If only all jobs came with such great bonuses. Ones that
normally do are for CEOs of big companies. Sure, UF might
need to utilize some business practices and try to be efficient,
but Bernie is still the boss of a university, not a Fortune 500
Universities are held to a different standard than busi-
nesses. UF's job is to educate students and support the "full
exploration of its intellectual boundaries," according to the
registrar's Web site not to maximize profits.
So why does Bernie get paid so much money at a time
when the rest of the university is struggling to make ends
meet? During times of financial struggle, "it's important
that you have great leadership," said Dianna Morgan, chair-
woman of the UF Board of Trustees.
We don't necessarily think so. What does it say to the
departments that are being gutted because of the College
of Liberal Arts and Sciences' shortfalls? What does it say to
all the students who won't be able to take sport and fitness
classes? "Oh, hey, guys. Urn, so we can't afford this anymore
... yeah. Sorry. But never mind my Audi. Or my new Armani
suit. Or my Rolex. Or my Louis Vuitton briefcase."
Maybe if Bernie wants to show that he is dedicated to
UF and its well-being, he would donate a portion of his sal-
ary back to it. He could pay for a new professor or two or a
couple of academic advisers. Maybe he could give some of
his salary toward a handful of scholarships. Or a department
We know it's not Bernie's personal responsibility to pull
UF out of its predicament. But it is his professional responsi-
bility. UF pays him enough maybe it wouldn't be so bad
for him to consider giving some back.
Part of the reason Bernie was hired was because of his
fundraising prowess. Those raised funds go to the UF
Foundation. So does anyone else find it a little odd that the
UF Foundation turns around and pays part of Bernie's sal-
Plus, we really don't appreciate his attitude toward this.
The way he flippantly asked, "Are university presidents
worth that kind of money?" makes us doubt that he is. It's
no laughing matter how much UF gives him. Students who
are thousands of dollars in debt probably don't think it's
very funny. Professors who are watching their departments
crumble aren't laughing. Divisions that are laying people off
don't see the humor of the situation.
Bernie is supposed to be carrying us through these finan-
cial struggles. If he wants everyone to come out on the other
side, some things need to change. We know Bernie's salary
won't change, but maybe his attitude and generosity could.

Living forever is best type of immortality
College is a time for youthful exploration, limitless
learning and planning your funeral.
Wednesday's Alligator reported on a course called
Mindful Living, in which students write their eulogies,
obituaries and epitaphs.
It's supposed to "bring more intentionality to our lives,
because they're going to end," said Sara Nash, the student
professor for the course.
I don't know about all that, but at least it would bring
some much-needed legitimacy to the complaint, "This class
is the death of me" (insert laugh track).
Apparently, a study in November's issue of
Psychological Science says contemplating your death will
make you happier than usual.
This reminds me of something a friend of mine once
said: "Death is like the bottom of a hill for most people, but
I'm going off the top of a cliff."
Well, good for him, but thinking about my death usu-
ally makes me sick to my stomach. So, I've decided to live
Woody Allen, my hero, said, "I don't want to achieve
immortality through my work; I want to achieve it through
I agree, and that's why I've never understood organ
donors. Some people want to donate their bodies to science,
whereas I prefer to donate science to my body.
But if biological research doesn't enable me to escape
biology, then it looks like I'll be forced to seek immortality
in other ways. Don't be upset with me, Woody.
Now, I don't think these columns I've been writing will
stand the test of time. Any newspaper with poor judgment
enough to let me write a weekly column clearly has no

I would probably have to donate a
significant amount of green to my
orange and blue.
And I just don't have time to

Vincent Massaro secure my immortality now, on a
firstname.lastname@example.org college student's budget.
What about the restrooms on
the ground floor of Weimer Hall?
I'm sure they could give me that for 20 bucks.
If not, I could go the safe route and carve my likeness
into the side of a virgin landform. But there aren't really any
hills big enough in Gainesville. Maybe that potato thing on
Turlington Plaza would work.
Well, there's always the Guinness World Records book.
What's the fastest anyone's ever been docked on Museum
Road? I'm sure my 120 miles per hour has to be dose.
Think of all the security photos taken of me overdraw-
ing money at ATMs. I'm sure banks save those somewhere.
If they put them all together, it would make an interesting
If production of the movie fails, I have plenty of scien-
tific discoveries to preserve my namesake. I've isolated a
new species of insect living under my dirty laundry. And
what about that unnamed island I found one night on
If nothing else, I could secure immortality in the stories
people tell about me.
For example, a friend told me some guy broke up with
her via e-mail, using the introductory phrase, "In other
news...." Such understatement will not soon be forgotten.
And, of course, there's always the option of getting
Tasered and then registering people to vote.

Letters to the Editor
Salary could be better spent
In light of the fact that funding
for many UF departments is being
cut to the bone, UF professors are
underpaid and overworked, state
funding for higher education is be-
ing cut every year and our economy
is, by many estimates, on the verge
of entering a recession, isn't it good
to know that we here at UF have
one of the highest-paid university
presidents in the country?
Since the University Athletic
Association and the UF Foundation
contribute such a large amount to
UF President Bernie Machen's sal-
ary, maybe it would be fair for both
to contribute to needy academic
departments and faculty salaries
- especially those in the College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences as well
as to keep the cost of tuition down
It should come as no surprise
that when the UF Board of Trustees
decides to give Pres. Machen a raise
- which happens with methodical
and unerring frequency that
their natural alliances and the basis
for the trustees' decision reside not
on the side of students, their fami-
lies or Florida residents, but for
the certain moneyed interests who
fund the most exorbitant salaries.
UF graduate student
Meyer doesn't deserve coverage
Why are we still mentioning
Andrew Meyer in the Alligator?
Sure, he gave you plenty of stories,
but it's over.
Mr. Meyer may have just been
desperate for attention when he
made a scene in front of Sen. John
Kerry, and now the Alligator con-
tinues to give him coverage when
he doesn't deserve it and nobody
I'm sure there are countless
interesting people on campus who
the Alligator could write about in-
stead of Taser Boy. I think I speak
for a lot of readers when I say Mr.
Meyer had his time, now let him
fall back into oblivion.
What we're pissed about this week:
Fashion or the lack thereof.
S Ugg boots and miniskirts. If it's that cold out, put on some
/ damn pants.
People who wear pajamas to class. Everyone else had
enough time and consideration to get dressed. So do you..
Frat guys who wear Guy Harvey T-shirts. Sorry, Gainesville
doesn't have any good places to fish for swordfish. Save the
shirts to wear on your dad's boat.
Girls who dress like it's -10 degrees outside when it's 70.
With a parka, the scarf and the hat, you look like you should
be going skiing yet you're still wearing flip-flops.
Guys who still pop their collars. Seriously, that was so three
years ago..Move on.
Jorts. Enough said.

Harvin expected to practice today, play against FSU
By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
UF wide receiver Percy Harvin
felt good enough to work out
Sunday and should practice today
as he recovers from a sinus infection
and migraine headaches that kept
him out of the last two games.
"He said he feels a lot better," UF
coach Urban Meyer said. "So I'm
hoping he's ready to go."
Since the illness flared up two
weeks ago, Harvin has undergone
CAT scans and an MRI, and he re-
ceived three or four different medi-
cines to counteract the migraines.
He was too sick to travel with the
team to South Carolina for a Nov. 10
game, but he did watch Saturday's
win against Florida Atlantic from

al collateral ligament), Riley Cooper
(broken finger) and Cornelius
Ingram (sprained ankle) have spent
time on the injured list, though
Cooper is still recovering.
"I'm hoping Percy gives us a full
complement," Meyer said. "I think
we're going to need it. We're a pretty
special group if we're all healthy
and we're all on it."

with his only substantial time at cor-

Florida State has a corps of
talented wide receivers, includ-
ing Greg Carr, De'Cody Fagg and
Preston Parker, and pitting Jenkins
against them concerns Meyer.
"He's obviously very young and
has very little experience," Meyer
said. "I don't know about [playing
him] against our rival."

Gators squeak by UCF in NCAAs
. ....... ..

Pressly Stadium shook as Central Florida mid-
fielder Hanna Wilde's penalty kick bounced off
The Gators merely survived Sunday's match
against UCF, winning 4-3 on penalty kicks. With
the victory, the Gators advance to the NCAA
Round of 16.
Officially, the match goes into the record books
as a 0-0 tie in double overtime.
Despite dominating the majority of the match,
it appeared that luck wasn't on UF's side.
Every nifty cross into the box seemed to get cut
off. Each favorable scoring opportunity seemed to
ricochet off the side of the goal.
It was nothing less than a gritty victory for UF.
"I know this sounds cocky, but I always felt we
were going to win, whether it was in regulation or
in penalty kicks," UF coach Becky Burleigh said.
"After we had our first penalty kick saved, I still
Senior forward KeLeigh Hudson sprained her
right knee in the ninth minute and did not return
to the game.
Burleigh placed the pressure of extending UF's
season on the shoulders of freshman goalkeeper
Meghan Berlingo, despite not playing the entire
second half or overtime.
"I think penalty kicks are really exciting,"
Berlingo said. "I really love taking them because
I feel like, for a goalkeeper, if you don't save one,
you're not expected to save one. When you do
come up with a save, it's awesome."
UCF's Lauren Halbert scored the first penalty
kick on Berlingo, putting the Gators in a 1-0 hole.
UF forward Megan Kerns finally got a ball past
Jennifer Manis on UF's second penalty kick, tying
the score at one goal apiece.
Amanda Martorana took the Knights' second
penalty kick, and at last it appeared Lady Luck
smiled upon the Gators.
Matorana's kick bounced off the right post
and gave UF a chance to take the lead. Defender
Ashley Harris couldn't convert on her shot at-
tempt, but luckily for the Gators, Berlingo was
able to get a hand on UCF defender Sarah De
Leon's shot attempt.
"They've seen everything before and
played in different situations."
Defender Shelley Lyle broke through next for
UF, giving the Gators a 2-1 lead:
Following scores by midfielder Daniela
Sanchez and the Knights' Jessica Jackson to tie
at 3, forward Ameera Abdullah gave the Gators
a 4-3 edge.
With the Gators in need of one Berlingo save
to clinch a victory, it appeared -that Wilde's shot
would evade the goalkeeper. But the Gators got
the bounce they needed.
"We're a team with a lot of seniors," Burleigh
said. "They've seen everything before and played
in different situations."
The Gators remain unbeaten in their last 14
games as they continue their push toward a na-
"That's one down and four to go," Lyle said.

UF MEN'S BASKETBALL
First-half run spurs UF to blowout win against Rutgers
By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
With 5:49 remaining in the first
half and the score tied at 31 against
Rutgers, UF coach Billy Donovan
called a timeout and forced the
Gators to forget about their youth.
"During the huddle, [Donovan]
said-we can't go bucket for bucket
with them," freshman guard Jai
Lucas said. "We have to get stops
if we want to win the game. Our
defensive passion really sparked
our offense and we never looked
Coming out of the stoppage, the
youthful Gators squad exploded on
a 17-2 run. UF (4-0) led 48-33 at the
half, and finished with a comfort-
able 88-63 win against Rutgers (3-1)
in the Gators' first true test of the
"It's hard to explain," Lucas said
of the run. "It's a feeling where you
almost get chills. You might get
tired, but once you get into that you
don't feel anything anymore."
UF continued its efficient shoot-
ing in the contest, hitting 50 percent
from the field.
The difference in the game, how-
ever, came from beyond the 3-point
line, where the Gators knocked
down 11 of their 26 attempts.
"I think the really big reason
there was such a differential in the
score was that we made seven more

played him, but he's basically still

With the win, Donovan and the,
Gators reached another milestone
in the young season. After setting
a record for consecutive home wins
against Tennessee Tech, Donovan
achieved his 300th career win
Saturday, 265 of which have come
during his tenure at UE.
Lucas said the team may look
back on the win as a turning point
for the season, but at this point his
focus is on moving forward.
"I wouldn't say we're mature
already because we have a -long
way to go," Lucas said. "But I think

season, I think we'll be right there."
Gators suffer 'embarrassing' road loss to Cornhuskers
* NEBRASKA DOMINATED THE
GATORS 90-63 IN LINCOLN.
By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
LINCOLN, Neb. Nebraska gave the
UF women's basketball team a reality check
The Cornhuskers (3-0) dominated nearly
every aspect of the game, and the Gators suf-
fered a 90-63 defeat that UF coach Amanda
Butler called "embarrassing."
The Gators (2-1) trailed the entire game.
"You walk that fine line between not want-
ing to beat them up too much, yet making sure
they understand the gravity of this moment,"
she said. "They're hurt by how embarrassing
that loss was. They know it was nowhere near
their best performance."
Nebraska used UF's strategy against itself,
and it worked nearly to perfection.
The Comhuskers pressured the Gators the
entire length of the court and looked to push
the ball as soon as they gathered a defensive
rebound. They forced 33 UF turnovers and
converted them into 38 points.
After the Gators struggled to break the
press against Robert Morris on Nov. 12, Butler
saw the flaw and tried to correct it in prac-
tice last week. The Cornhuskers showed the
Gators they still need some work.
"We didn't do a good job
:-a of getting them prepared
c for the level of pressure
... that Nebraska was going to
Women's bring," Butler said.
Basketball Perhaps most troubling
for the Gators was how
seemingly easy they lost
composure. The team became visibly frus-
trated and made poor decisions on the floor.
Senior guard Depree Bowden compared
Saturday night's game to a Southeastern
"They're gonna be all up in your face,"
Bowden said. "We just gotta stay composed."
The Gators also weren't thrilled with the
officiating, as each questionable call seemed to
go against them.
"Whenever you go on the road, you don't
expect to get calls," Butler said. "And they
didn't go our way tonight. But we're not
looking for excuses, we're looking for ways to
get better. ...They called it the way they saw
it. We certainly played a lot worse than they
"We did not resemble the team that beat
Xavier and beat Robert Morris."
