FSU 12 I UF45
Tebow's Heisman hype escalates in blowout
By MIKE MCCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
As the final minute ticked
off the clock in UF's 45-12 win
against Florida State and chants
of "Te-bow Heis-man!" rang out
across The Swamp, Tim Tebow's
teammates urged him to join in
"I told him to do the Heisman
pose out there, but he didn't do
it," receiver Andre Caldwell
"He had all the fans crunked
up, so I told him to go on and

to make such a statement. His

The super sophomore was
19 of 28 passing for 262 yards
and three touchdowns, and he

NCAA record for rushing by a
It was also his 11th straight
game with more than 200 yards
passing, tying a school record
held by Rex Grossman, Danny
Wuerffel and Shane Matthews. In
the fourth quarter, Tebow broke
Grossman's record for total of-

Local firefighter's passion lies in combat challenge
By KATIE GALLAGHER
Wearing all their gear and carrying 42-
pound packs, firefighters lumber up a five-
story tower two by two.
They hoist up another 42 pounds to the top
before stomping down the stairs, where they
each hit a 160-pound beam out of the way
with a sledgehammer. They weave left and
right around obstacles until they reach the fire
hoses, which they lug back, aim and fire.
They each grab a 175-pound dummy and
drag the "victim" to safety.
The ritual is the Firefighter Combat
Challenge, and no one has performed it more
times than Pat Hartley, 54. The Gainesville Fire
Rescue firefighter is the only one who's com-
peted in the challenge every year since it was
started in 1992.
He's always, qualified for the highest level
of competition, placing at the world champi-
onship three times second place in 1994,
fourth in 1995 and third in 2004. His best time
is 1 minute, 53 seconds.
Though he qualified for the championship
again this year, city budget cuts forced him
and five other Gainesville Fire Rescue fire-
fighters to take the year off. He didn't attend
the championship, which took place in Las
Vegas from Nov. 4 to Nov. 8.
"I wasn't going to fork out $3,000 to pay for
it myself," he said. Next year he said he'll start
saving early and hope the competition will be
dose enough for him to drive.
The competition takes place across the
United States, as well as in Canada and
Australia, and gives firefighters a chance to
. show off skills through tasks that mimic what
they do at a fire.
Hartley first attended a regional competi-
tion in Orlando in 1992 with four coworkers.
The team came in second place out of 12,
qualifying the members for the national com-
petition in Anaheim, Calif.
"We tried to prepare, but-it was new to
everybody, even all the other competitors,"
The team didn't place at nationals that year,
and since all the teams were from the United
States, there was no world championship.
Australia and Canada would start competing
"And if we get a call at 1 o'clock,
he's out there still running the
Nowadays, Hartley starts practicing six
weeks before a competition, using a five-story
tower identical to the one in the competition.
Gainesville Fire Rescue persuaded the city
to buy the tower for them four years ago. It
looms over the parking lot behind Station
Hartley is out there constantly, coworker
J.D. Perryman said. Most of the firefighters
start going to bed at 8:30 p.m., Perryman said.
"And if we get a call at 1 o'clock, he's out
there still running the tower. He's out there
dragging dummies around and it's scary,"
Hartley has worked for Gainesville Fire
Rescue for 22 years and at Station No. 2 for
the past 16. Before that, he worked briefly for
Ocala Fire Rescue.
A Williston native, Hartley was always an
athlete. He attended SFCC on a scholarship,
throwing the discus for the now-defunct track
Unsure of what he wanted to do after
community college, Hartley completed his six
weeks of fire college in 1983.
Today his son, Joel, is a firefighter with
Alachua County Fire Rescue. The two compet-
ed in the tandem event at last year's Southeast
regional competition the first and only fa-
ther-son pair in the challenge's history.
But not all Hartley's memories of the chal-
lenge are happy. At the 2004 world champion-
ships in Ottawa, Canada, Hartley was favored
to win the over-50 competition as he faced the
Canadian champion in the last race of the day.
It was dose until the end.
"So here we go, pulling the dummy, pulling
the weight and I'm thinking, T'm finally going
to win the world championship,'" he said.
Hartley was about 15 feet ahead when he
tripped on a bump in the carpet, landing with
the 175-pound dummy on top of him.
He was five feet from the finish line when
his opponent rushed past him. He came in
Hartley's competitive nature makes it hard
for him not to stress out about races, he said.
The race may be a few minutes of physi-
cal hell, he said, "but two or three hours up
until then, you're putting your mind through
the same thing because in your mind you're
thinking, I hope I don't screw up.'"
Most of the firefighters he used to compete
with left the race long ago. When they started
not doing as well as they used to, they gave
up, he said. But Hartley continues.
He said he thinks he could have placed in
the top three at the world championship this
year if he had gone.
Next year he'll move up to his first year in
the 55-and-over age bracket, Hartley said, giv-
ing him a winning edge.
A self-prodaimed "maniac about working
out," Hartley said he can't give up on this
"I do it just to have something to do, to be
competitive at," he said.

Fly-over shows fans pilot's view of Swamp
By ILEANA MORALES
UF football fans got a
new view of The Swamp on
Col. Ken Wilsbach, a UF
alumnus and the 53rd Wing
commander, commanded three
jet planes from UF's Air Force
ROTC that flew over Ben Hill
Griffin Stadium before UF
played Florida State University.
One plane, a F-15E Strike
Eagle, was equipped with in-
frared cameras to show fans the
same view pilots had as they ap-
proached the stadium.
The other two planes flying
about 1,000 feet over the sta-
dium were F-16 Vipers.
Maj. James Bodnar, an assis-
tant professor for UF Air Force
ROTC, said this was the first
time he has ever seen a pilot's
view from a fly-over broadcast
on the screens in the stadium.
The fly-over was coordinated
to happen right after the UF
Pride of the Sunshine Fightin'
Gator Marching Band played
the national anthem.
He said UF Air Force ROTC
worked with UF and the Air
Force to make fly-over possible.

cockpit of an F-16 Viper during an open house at the University Air Center on Saturday.

This is the first Air Force fly-
over before a football game in
more than five years, he said.
"We like getting out in front

He said the planes were over
the stadium for no more than 10
seconds. All aircraft and pilots

"The fact we could do some-
thing for 92,000 fans in the sta-
dium that was very special to
us," Bodnar said.
As the pilots left the stadium,
they were greeted with high-
fives, handshakes and fans tell-
ing them thank you, he said.
"The idea of a few jets flying
over, whether at a game or just
in the middle of the afternoon, is
exciting," Bodnar said.

night for the Black Friday sales. Mokashi said she had been in line since 5 p.m. Wednesday.
Shoppers across the country packed retail stores Friday in a bid to snag the best bargains.
Although sales were better than expected over the holiday weekend, the spike may have
been due to shoppers buying items from discount stores like Wal-Mart. That could mean
bad news for more upscale chains. Macy's Inc. and Toys "R" Us were two stores expected to

For police, just another day
By APRIL DUDASH
While students traveled home to their fami-
lies last week, Gainesville Police Department
Lt. Will Halvosa stayed in Gainesville.
Working on Thanksgiving is not a new ex-
perience for Halvosa. He has been with GPD
for 22 years.
To Halvosa, Thanksgiving means celebrat-
ing with his fellow officers while remaining
alert during his 10-hour shift.
In the morning, officers all eat breakfast to-
gether at Phil-Nick's on Main Street.
Turkeys and other festive foods are pro-
vided to the evening-shift officers, who come in
at 5 p.m., Halvosa said.
They never know when they'll get the next
call signaling an accident or robbery.
"Historically, Thanksgiving has always been
quiet," Halvosa said. "It's actually. a good day
to work because people are usually in good
spirits. It's a family holiday."
He said there is less traffic on the roadways
because most people have usually arrived at
their destinations before Thanksgiving.
It's also beneficial when few businesses are
open because people don't have a reason to
travel, Halvosa said.
"It's the opposite of New Year's," he .said.
"Thanksgiving is geared more toward celebrat-
ing life, celebrating your families, celebrating

firefighters, to celebrate Thanksgiving on a dif-

"Thanksgiving becomes very flexible in this
line of work," he said.
Halvosa traveled out of town Friday to
spend time with family in South Florida.
"That's the arrangement I made with them,"
he said. "They understand the job I have."
Even though law enforcement demands
some sacrifices, Halvosa took the time to enjoy
Thanksgiving traditions with family members.

Study could cure blind
By STEVEN WEINER
UF researchers have begun a
study that could cure a type of
blindness by intentionally injecting
viruses into patients eyes.
Patients with inherited blind-
ness will be injected with viruses
engineered to provide a missing
protein to the light-collecting cells
in their eyes.
UF is one of the leaders of the
The clinical trial, which began
earlier this month, will study six
adults and three children afflicted
with inherited blindness, a UF
press release stated.
"The idea of the therapy is
simple," wrote William Hauswirth,
a UF professor, in the press release.
"If cells are missing a gene for a
vital function, such as vision, the
therapy is to replace that gene."
The process was pioneered by
Nicholas Muzyczka, a UF professor
of molecular genetics and microbi-

During this procedure, mo-

DNA and reprogram it to deliver a
different DNA, Muzyczka said.
Once injected into the patient's
retina, the virus invades a cell
and leaves the modified DNA in
the nucleus. The DNA makes the
nucleus produce a missing protein,

Torture by Taser
UN rules against Tasers
after several deaths
The phrase made famous by UF telecommunication se-
nior Andrew Meyer has made its way so deep into the
American lexicon that it has earned an entry in one of
the most prestigious dictionaries.
Well, it's an online dictionary. And nearly all of its thou-
sands of entries are slang. But it has become a part of our
society's psyche nonetheless.
One of the ten definitions on Urban Dictionary for Meyer's
catchphrase reads, "Don't Tase me, bro: The hip thing to say
after resisting arrest." ,,
Since Meyer's arrest, it seems like Taser use is in the news
more and more frequently, and more people seem to be dying
as a result of being Tasered. And now, Tasers are considered to
be a torture device.
The United Nations Committee Against Torture ruled
Friday that Tasers can be a type of torture.
Last week in Jacksonville, two men died in two separate in-
cidents after police officers Tasered them. In all, six men in the
U.S. and Canada died last week after they were Tasered.
Tasers aren't the first weapon of their type to be deemed
torturous. Electric shock torture was used in the Vietnam War.
Electric fencing has been used for decades to keep animals and
people out or in of certain areas. And then there's the
Electricity is powerful and dangerous and should never be
taken lightly. Using Tasers on people with heart problems and
young people could be a recipe for disaster. Using a Taser too
long could also be fatal. There are a whole slew of reasons for
police departments across the country to let go of the trigger.
Here's another one: The Department of Justice's Bureau of
Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives does not regulate
Tasers because they aren't classified as a firearm. That means
Taser makers don't have to hold their product to any safety
standards or requirements. That's a scary thought, but hey, at
least a consumer model of the stun gun now comes in pink.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission has not done
any safety investigations on Tasers. But a Taser is still a gun -
a deadly weapon and should be treated as one. Something
needs to change with Tasers if so many people who were
Tasered are dying in such a short time period.
It's pretty much up to individual police departments to
decide when to use Tasers. While a Taser is often a much bet-

More light was shed on my disorder recently, thanks to
a friend of mine. On our way to the pharmacy one night,
he asked me if I considered myself a hypochondriac.
"I think I might be," I said. "But I can't really be cer-
tain. How can you tell?"
"Well, have you ever thought you had cancer?" he
Uh-oh. Looks like I'm a goner.
Take my latest obsession: cell phones causing brain
During Thanksgiving break, this was a topic of con-
I can't remember how we began talking about it, but
it was enough of a surprise that I unglued my cell phone
from my ear to weigh, in on the matter.
Sure, I'd heard my share of rumors about this sort of
thing, but it never seemed as problematic as, say, deodor-
ant giving me breast cancer or microwave ovens being
My skepticism was put to rest, however, when my
mother showed me her cell phone manual.
I would have looked through the manual for my
phone, but I trashed it upon purchase. I spend too much
time talking on the phone to read directions.
Under "Important Safety Precautions" on Page 3, it
states, "Do not hold or let antenna come in contact with
your body during a call."
Maybe you could put that one
on the box, buddy in all capital
letters. Better yet, pray tell, why
i ..- don't you want me to touch the
antenna? Is it bad luck or some-
Vincent Massaro To be safe, the next precaution
should be to just leave the phone
email@example.com turned off in the box. But instead,
it says something about not let-
ting animals' teeth or nails touch the battery. Really? I
thought it could double as chew toy. My bad.
Let's go to Page 12 for more information.
"This device was tested for typical use with the back
of the phone kept 0.6 inches from the body." So what
happens when I press the phone flush against my face
because the volume isn't loud enough? By the way, the
phone is less than half an inch thin.
But my favorite tidbit didn't appear until Page 83
in an FDA Consumer Update: "The available scientific
evidence does not show that any health problems are as-
sociated with using wireless phones. There is no proof,
however, that wireless phones are absolutely safe."
I'm at a loss. Seven solid years of killing myself softly.
I obviously have to scrap my life-threatening telecom-
munications device after a class-action lawsuit but
I can no longer rely on more resourceful people to give
me necessary, last-minute directions via cell phone.
Instead of just calling people to tell them I'll be five
minutes late, I would actually have to be on time.
Hopefully, scientists are closer to finding a cure for
cell phones than they are to finding a cure for cancer.
Or at least they could cure my hypochondria.

Scalping shows free market
I'm writing in response to
Stephanie Rosenberg's Tuesday col-
umn. I have been to many sporting
events by not buying tickets from the
box office, and I have sold tickets for
more than face value.
Ticket scalping is one of the
best ways to gain insight about the
American free market at work. It
is simple supply and demand. We
all know Gators football tickets are
of limited supply and the demand,
especially for the Florida State
University game, is quite large.
If you do not want to pay a high
price to attend the game, feel free to
watch it on television for less.
Protesters' actions were merited
In regards to the protests sur-
rounding former U.S. Attorney
General Alberto Gonzales' speech at
UF, I have a few important observa-
tions to make. As a participant in the
protests, I can assure you we take the
First Amendment right of freedom of
speech very seriously. For the pur-
pose of protecting both Mr. Gonzales'
and our First Amendment rights, we
unanimously decided our protests
should be visual, not vocal.
The fact that any perceived inter-
ruption on our part was met with
audience applause loud enough to
force Gon: ales to temporarily stop
speaking is indicative of this man's
unpopular ty, not of the protesters'
insensitivity. Besides, the spontane-
ous outbursts we provoked were
only temporary, and their effects
cap be likened to the outbursts of
applause that .often force popular
speakers into momentary silence.
Protests like these will likely
follow Gonzales. for quite a while
- such is the price of his abysmal
career in "civil service." Despite
any discomfort the protesters and
hecklers may have caused him, he
still made $40,000 for his speech. I
find that to be the only embarrassing
detail of this whole event.
Have your say about UF tuition
between shrinking budgets and growing
costs, it seems every family, business and
state is trying to make ends meet. The
same holds true at UF.
The cost of educating 50,000 of the state's
best students has grown at a rate that is
quickly outpacing available funding. For years,
state legislators and university officials have
searched for policies that would effectively re-
solve the problem. Enter differential tuition.
In June, Gov. Charlie Crist approved legisla-
tion that would grant three of Florida's public
universities UF, Florida State University and
the University of South Florida the ability to
charge higher tuition to cover disproportionate-
ly high costs. The measure was heavily lobbied
for by affected parties across the state, includ-
ing Student Government's lobbyists.
With the legislation now in effect, UF will
have a little extra money in the fall for programs
that need new equipment and prestigious fac-
ulty. As the arbiters of student interests, the uni-
versity administration is working hand in hand
with SG officials to ensure this funding is used
in a way that directly benefits student interests.
That's where you come in.
On Tuesday at the Student Senate's regu-
lar meeting in Room 282 of the Reitz Union
at 7:30 p.m., I will host presentations from
Josh Weiss Marie Zeglen, assistant
Speaking Out provost and director of
and Research, and Albert Matheny, associate
dean of Academic Advising, on the differential
tuition program. Following the presentations, I
will moderate an open question-and-answer fo-
rum. We want to hear from you before making
final recommendations on how millions of your
dollars will be spent.
Come out Tuesday night, hear what the
university has to say about differential tuition
and make your voice heard. Your attendance
will show the administration you care about
how your tuition dollars are spent. We want a
student body educated by the best faculty with
the best equipment, and this program is a step
in that direction.
If you have questions and cannot attend, I
welcome you to send your questions to me at
The university administration and SG are
making it a point to hear student input before
finalizing their plans. Tuesday night's forum is
being held for you. Come to Senate and tell us
what you think. After all, it's your money.

dent, is a senior majoring in philosophy and

Group collecting holiday cards for children in hospital
By JACKIE AZIS
Alligator Contributing Writer
With the holiday season approaching, the
UF chapter of Friends for Life of America
hopes to spread joy to children in hospitals.
Through its annual program, "Hearts for
the Holidays," Friends for Life will make
inspirational cards to send to pediatric can-
cer patients across the country, said Ashley
Ferrara, a volunteer and promoter of the
This week, anyone interested in creating
a card can visit tables set up on Turlington
Plaza from Monday to Friday and on the Reitz
Union Colonnade from Monday to Thursday,
said Ferrara, a UF biology junior.
The tables will be operating from 9:30 a.m.
to 3 p.m, she said.
"It's wonderful to bring some holiday joy
into the lives of these children," Ferrara said.
"I want them to know that they are in our
thoughts, especially during this season."
Hearts for the Holidays began Nov. 19, and
1,000 cards have already been made, she said.
The program has been on campus for five
years, and although the purpose and project
have not changed, it has become more success-
ful with each passing year, Ferrara said.
Last year, more than 7,200 cards were
made, and the goal for the number of cards in-
creases each year, said Robin Manzella, Hearts
for the Holidays' director.
In order to help meet this year's goal,
Friends for Life wanted to get the Gainesville
community involved and raise awareness
"It takes their mind off of what
they are going through for just a
Hearts for the Holidays director
about the program, said Manzella, a senior
health education and behavior major. For the
first time, the group set up tables at Publix
grocery stores, she said.
All of the supplies for making a card are
provided at the tables, including stickers,
stamps and markers, Manzella said.
Friends for Life asks that each card made be
a generic holiday card with no specific holiday
reference so it can go to any child, she said.
Those who make a card also need to avoid
mentioning being in the hospital or telling the
child to get well or feel better, Manzella said.
After the program is over, the cards are sent
to each hospital that requests them. Hospitals
in each of the 50 states have requested cards,
Manzella said Friends for Life loves it
when groups, including fraternities and so-
rorities, get involved with the project.
Special organization kits with all of the
necessary supplies are made for groups on
campus that want to help, she said.
"These children are in the hospital, and
they are always thinking about their illness,"
Manzella said. "It takes their mind off of what
they are going through for just a second."

Online-course registration booms in popularity at UF
By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Contributing Writer
As an incoming college freshman, Jonathan
Elrod had no idea what he was getting himself
The 18-year-old UF student registered for
a once-a-week general psychology course
because it was required for his major, applied
physiology and kinesiology, and fit into his
schedule. But the first day of school, he found
out it was an online course.
"1 was kind of taken aback by the way
that it was designed because it was basically,
'Here's the book. Go read it. Come back, and
we'll take an exam and that's that,'" Elrod
said. "There really isn't much actual teaching.
It's everything's on my own."Even though he
was surprised that his course was taught on-
line, Elrod said online classes can be beneficial
to students, and he would consider taking an
online class again.
Elrod's willingness to take online courses
is reflected in the rapid growth rate of online
learning at colleges and universities across the
nation, according to the fifth annual study by
The Sloan Consortium, a collaboration of edu-
cation and research organizations.
The study's findings, which were released
this month, show a nearly 10 percent increase
in the number of students taking online cours-
es during the fall 2006 semester at 2,500 U.S.
colleges and universities.
In total, almost 3.5 million students took at
least one online class that semester, the report
About 42,000 UF students are taking at
least one course this semester with an online

e-Learning Support Services.

When he started working at UF in July
2000, UF's online course management system
consisted of 100 courses, and there were only
a few thousand students enrolled in those
courses, Johnson said.
"For better or for worse, the use of that
course management system exploded," he
said. "And I've been hanging onto the tail of
that tiger ever since."
The most popular online courses at UF are
in the business and professional programs
such as medical, dental and pharmacy, he
This semester, Emily Nichols, a UF food
science and human nutrition senior, is taking
an online medical terminology course.
"I'm not crazy about it, but I don't mind it,"
she said. "If I was given a choice, I probably
would've still taken it online, especially with a
heavy course load."
Johnson said he wants to ask students what
they think of UF's online services and what
technologies UF should implement.
"If the University of Florida wants to be a
Top-10 university, we can't be a technological
laggard," he said.

Tebow plays second half despite fractured hand
By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
UF quarterback Tim Tebow
played the majority of the sec-
ond half of Saturday's 45-12 vic-
tory against Florida State with a
fractured right hand, University
Athletic Association sports in-
formation director Steve McClain
X-rays after the game showed
Tebow suffered a non-displaced
fracture to his non-throwing
hand, which occurred during
his 5-yard rushing touchdown
with 12:14 remaining in the third
"The trainers looked at him
and did some tests on the side-
lines to determine if it was bro-
ken," McClain said. "Based on
his response, he could still go.
uany iUU w LaullUII/ '"ii-a I
,UF quarterback Tim Tebow rushes for his second touchdown during the third quarter of the Gators' 45-
12 victory against Florida State on Saturday. Tebow fractured his right hand during the play.
People who know Tim, I'm sure
he was in more pain than he led
them to believe."
Non-displaced fractures gen-

finishing this season with a national title.
But with an opportunity to escape last
season's demons in the same city that left
them broken, the Gators fell short once
There is one difference, though.
This time the team has no one else to
blame. There will be no arguments that bad
calls greatly influenced the outcome. This
time, UF admitted it wasn't the best team
on the field.
"I think we gave really good effort, but
we didn't play our best," Gators coach Becky
Burleigh said. "I think we could have been a
bit more patient and made the best of a few
more of our opportunities. You're never up-
set at your team losing if they played hard.

and fought, but couldn't put it in the back of
the net, so it was frustrating."
Despite not reaching her team's final
goal, Burleigh still views the season as a suc-
cess. The Gators won the SEC Tournament
title for the first time since 2004 and featured
four players on the All-SEC teams.
"Overall when we look at it we'll see it as
a success," Burleigh said. "But right now it
doesn't feel like it. We won our conference
and that's a positive."
With eight seniors departing, the Gators
will be scrambling to replace several key
pieces next season.
Burleigh isn't concerned with that right
"We just lost," she said. "I'm not worried
about next season. You can ask me about
that in August."

UF's home streak ends
* THE GATORS LOST TO FLORIDA
STATE ON FRIDAY NIGHT.
By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
After trailing for a grand total of 7:48
in its first five games, the UF men's bas-
ketball team led Florida State 7-6 at the 15:
43 mark and never led again.
The 11,995 fans in a packed and rau-
cous O'Connell Center would have to
wait almost six minutes before UF would
score again, and they watched as the
Seminoles dominated from then on out,
handing UF a 65-51 loss.
With the loss, the Gators' record home-
winning streak of 24 games and overall
streak of 15 ended.
"I thought we got outworked down
low, our guards got blown by it was
an all-out bad game for us," said forward
Chandler Parsons, who was 3 of 11 from
The Gators would suffer through a
21-2 run in the first half, and were down
by as much as 19, trailing 29-10 with 6:19
to go. The hole would prove too deep for
the Gators, who had several runs quelled
by their sloppy play and FSU's clutch
With the lead cut to 11 early in the
second half, junior Walter Hodge was
called for a technical foul that led to 4
unanswered points for the Seminoles
and established a double-digit lead that
would never fade.
"We got possession of the ball down
11, then we got possession of the ball
down 15," UF coach Billy Donovan said.
"Give Florida State credit. ... An older
team saw maybe a little internal frustra-
tion with our team and a lack of maturity
coming through a little bit."
The young Gators, who were hitting
almost 54 percent from the field in their
first five games, shot a dismal 39 percent
Friday night, including a 4-of-23 perfor-
mance from beyond the 3-point line.
"We couldn't make shots, and we
had pretty decent looks," Donovan said.
"That's something we've tried to talk to
these guys a long time about is when you
don't shoot the ball well, you've still got
to give yourself a chance to win. ... Our
lack of offense affected our energy on
defense, and we didn't have the mental
toughness to battle through our woeful
A slew of Gators who were off to
fast starts this season stalled in Friday's

to go 2 of 11 from the field. Guard Nick
Calathes added just 7
points, and Parsons hit
only one of his seven
Men's 3-point attempts.
Basketball leads the team in min-
utes played was on
the court for just 10 minutes in the first
half, something Donovan attributed to
his poor shot selection and too-aggres-
"There's no question I sat him inten-
tionally," Donovan said. "I would have
sat him the whole half if I could have."
Center Marreese Speights didn't score
until a little more than one minute before
the half. Speights, who was averaging
16.6 points per game, finished with a
measly 4 points on four shots.
"He's got to figure out that you can't
play finesse all the time," Donovan said.
"I think Marreese has great offensive
skills, but sometimes you're going to have
to go in there physically and compete."
Hodge and Adam Allen were the
standouts for the Gators. Hodge tallied 11
points while Allen, whose father Randy
Allen played for FSU, scored 8 points on
3-of-6 shooting and played well despite
the extra pressure.
"I was really proud of Adam Allen to-
night," Donovan said. "With all the circus
surrounding him, for a young kid, he kept
his composure, kept his focus and did a
great job for us."
Stats make case for Tebow
UF coach Urban Meyer was asked
to put quarterback Tim Tebow's
season statistics into perspective
following Saturday's win against Florida
While Meyer admitted Tebow's num-
bers were outstanding, he never really
answered the question.
Tebow has accounted for 3,970 yards
of total offense this season. That's
more than 12 entire teams, including
Miami, Notre Dame and a bowl-eligible
Mississippi State squad.
Tebow's 22 rushing touchdowns place
him third in the nation, behind only run-
ning backs Kevin Smith of UCF and Matt
Forte from Tulane.
The 22 rushing touchdowns are also
the most by any player in the history of
the Southeastern Conference and are tied
for the most by a quarterback in NCAA
history. Air Force's Chance Harridge ran
for 22 scores in 2002, but he was a glori-
fied running back in an option offense
that rarely threw the ball.
Tebow's 51 total touchdowns lead
the nation, and only seven players have
passed for more touchdowns.
He is second in the nation in passing
efficiency with a rating of 177.85, while
earning a reputation as the top running
quarterback in the game.
The sophomore has rushed for more
touchdowns than option quarterback Eric
Crouch did when he won the Heisman at
Nebraska in 2001. His numbers are also
more impressive than those of former UF
quarterbacks Rex Grossman, the runner-
up in 2001, and Danny Wuerffel, who
won the Heisman in 1996.
Tebow has rushed for more touch-
downs than USC tailback Reggie Bush
and thrown for more touchdowns than
USC's Matt Leinart did in 2005 when they
contended for the award, which Bush
won. Not only do Tebow's stats surpass
those of former winners, but they blow
those of the other Heisman contenders
out of the water.
Chase Daniel has
,. accounted for 15
than Tebow, and
Bryan Jones his passer rating
Bryan Out Loud is more than 20
firstname.lastname@example.org points lower.
ning back Darref
McFadden has rushed for seven fewer
touchdowns than Tebow. And against
their seven common opponents, Tebow
accounted for 30 touchdowns, while
McFadden totaled six.
While West Virginia quarterback Pat
White has only played one fewer game
than Tebow, he'll need 1,328 total yards
and 25 touchdowns against Pittsburgh
next week to equal Tebow's numbers.
Let me put it this way. If you owned
Tebow in a fantasy college football
league, there's a good chance you'd go
undefeated. (Unless, of course, you also
owned the Gators' defense).
And Tebow did most of his damage
against SEC defenses.
Can you imagine what kind of
numbers he would be putting up if he
played for a team in the Western Athletic
Conference or the Mountain West?
Even if you put him intq a competi-
tive but more offense-oriented league
like the Pac-10 or Big 12, his numbers
would probably improve dramatically.
The Gators have three losses, but you
can't fault Tebow for any of them. In fact,
he has been one of the most consistent
players in college football, despite play-
ing through injuries that may have kept;
some off the field entirely.
The quarterback scored so many
touchdowns against South Carolina
(seven) that even offensive guru Steve
Spurrier shook his head in disbelief.
And if Tebow doesn't win the
Heisman in a couple of weeks, you
should be shaking your head, as well.

FOOTBALL, from page 1
early, as FSU linebacker Geno
Hayes got in Tebow's face fol-
lowing a delay of game penalty
on the Gators' first drive.
Tebow answered with a 16-
yard scramble on the next play
for a first down, during which
he juked Hayes who boasted
in the week before the game that
his team would end Tebow's
Heisman Trophy bid.
Two plays later, Tebow found
himself in the end zone after a
23-yard run, giving UF a 7-3 lead
that it would never lose.
"That was a stupid thing to
do, to get Tebow fired up like
that," Caldwell said. "You saw
later on that drive that he scored
the touchdown, so it wasn't too
smart on (Hayes') part."
Hayes finished the game with
While Tebow shied away from
celebrating his accomplishments,
Caldwell had no problem doing
The senior capped off his ca-
reer at home just as he had prom-
ised a week before, by making a
touchdown catch (a 31-yarder in
the fourth quarter) and launch-
ing the ball into the stands.
"This was the perfect ending
to my career in Gainesville, with
great fans, scoring a touchdown,
throwing it in the end zone and
whooping Florida State," said
Caldwell, who had four catches
for 56 yards and a score.
UF's all-time receptions leader
continued a Gators tradition with
the act, following in the footsteps
of Travis McGriff and Carlos
Alvarez, who did the same thing
in their final home contests.

ligned unit held
the Seminoles without a touch-
down, even without top comer-
back Joe Haden.
Redshirt freshman Jacques
Rickerson filled in for Haden,
turning in the best performance
of his career.
"I can't say enough about our
defense," UF coach Urban Meyer
said. "They're growing up. That's
the first time I saw them really
grow up out there on the field."
As he has all season, Meyer de-
flected questions about Tebow's
worthiness of the Heisman, but
FSU coach Bobby Bowden had
no problem giving the quarter-
back his endorsement.
"If (Tebow) doesn't win the
Heisman Trophy, it's because of
the sophomore thing," Bowden
said. "But if he doesn't, he should
win the next two years."
