Senators say more faculty, advisers crucial
UF officials Albert Matheny, left, Daniel Wubah and Marie Zeglen, along with UF student Josh Weiss,

UF's administration and stu-
dents are on the same page when
it comes to the Tuition Differential
Program more advisers and
faculty members are crucial, they
Members of UF's Student
Senate offered suggestions to three
university officials about which
departments need the new advis-
ers and professors most during
an open forum before the Senate
meeting Tuesday night.
The Tuition Differential
Program will incrementally raise
tuition 40 percent over four years,
so long as it doesn't exceed 15 per-
cent, per year. It will go into effect

Wubah, UF associate provost for

Gun found by dive team

Police found a weapon Tuesday that
may have been used in the Sunday morn-
ing shooting of a Tallahassee man who
later died at Shands at UF.
Sgt. Keith Faulk, Alachua County
Sheriff's Office spokesman, said a hand-
gun was recovered in about three feet of
water by the office's dive team.
Police will not know if it is the actual
weapon until they conduct a forensic re-
view, said Lt. Keith Kameg, Gainesville
Police Department spokesman.

Dr. Robert Cade, one of the inventors
of Gatorade, died Tuesday of kidney fail-

Cade and three other UF researchers

"Today, with his passing, the University
of Florida lost a legend, lost one of its best

Dr. Edward Block, chairman of UF's de-

Security procedures at appearances by

front of the stage at future events. The of-

During Gonzales' speech at the Phillips

Kevin Hachey climbed on stage wearing
orange jumpsuits and black hoods covering
One of the students stood directly next to
Gonzales for about five seconds before UPD
officers removed him from the stage.
Both students were arrested for disrupt-
ing a public event.
"Obviously, we weren't comfortable
with them being on the stage," Ettel said.
"Now we're making a few changes."
Security measures for speeches were al-
ready under review after UPD officers used

munication senior. He was Tasered during

Campus UPD had switched to a
three-tiered system at the

Phillips Center employees, then UF

disruptive audience members to leave the
venue, Ettel said.
He acknowledged that Gonzales could
have been physically harmed by the pro-
testers, adding that he believes this was
an isolated incident that wouldn't happen
An officer positioned behind the stage's
curtains was alerted by radio and already
headed toward the protesters as they
climbed on stage, he added.

some responsibility in creating a safe atmo-

people were able to get on stage, it's also a

His favorite flavor was orange.
As for the drink's success, "It's a great

None of the four of us ever expected it."
Cade grew up in San Antonio, Texas,

Incoming students also require
higher-level courses sooner, and there
simply isn't room in those classes, he
Meanwhile, baby-boom-era profes-
sors are retiring, and there isn't any
money to hire new professors to fill
the empty slots.
Several student senators reiter-
ated the need for advisers and faculty,
suggesting areas where they might
be most useful, such as the College
of Health and Human Performance,
the College of Agricultural and Life
Sciences, and the College of Liberal
Arts and Sciences.
Matheny said UF administra-
tors would take a broad look at each
college's needs before hiring anyone,
which might take awhile.
It's important for UF to keep at-
tracting bright in-state students so
Florida can continue benefiting from
all the homegrown talent, he said.
"I realize that these students are
so damn good better than we de-
serve," Matheny said. "Raising tuition
even a little bit will still make us the
cheapest school in the world."

wo Florida lawmakers want to
pass a don't-text-and-drive law
for minors. I can hardly blame
them. After all, who hasn't been scared
of the guy with one hand on the wheel
and the other on a phone? However, I
am not so convinced the bill is a good
thing for drivers in the Sunshine State.
While the potential ban has good
intentions, it is flawed. Passing a law
on something doesn't always solve
problems. Drugs haven't disappeared
because they're illegal the law just
makes criminals out of those who
possess marijuana, cocaine and LSD.
If South American crime lords have
no qualms about their products being
smuggled into America, will some
teens take the same attitude toward
In addition, a texting ban is over-
generalized. Why should texting be
singled out amid a litany of other driv-
ing distractions? If people can't send
V ._ -- o- messages
eat, put on
Vincent Gagliano lAds instead.
email@example.com we live in the
ciety that is America, people will con-
tinue to multitask behind the wheel.
A ban on texting would unfairly
discriminate against younger drivers,
who are most likely to break this law.
Lawyers, doctors and soccer moms
could be just as guilty, but the bill
won't really work against them. Why
should just the young be targeted?
Insurance companies charge the
youngest drivers the highest rates
because statistically, their inexperience
often leads to more accidents and high-
er costs. If the texting ban is enforced,
and it were found that many accidents
were caused by these young "crimi-
nals," that would give Geico, Allstate,
and State Farm insurance companies
the ability to raise their already high
rates, largely due to a misdemeanor
charge adding yet another blemish to
young drivers' records. They could
win big since most young people are
guilty of texting anytime, anywhere.
We know from government class
that many corporations hire lobbyists
to get lawmakers to pass laws like
these that benefit businesses' pocket-
books. Thus, it's very likely that the bill
was created not to keep drivers safer,
but to make certain companies richer.
OMG, this is SNF!
So until common sense prevails
in Tallahassee, buckle up, follow the
speed limit and get off the phone.

Bright Futures stipend
no longer guaranteed
If you're a Bright Futures Florida Academic Scholars re-
cipient, you can plan on getting about one less textbook
for free next semester, thanks to budget cuts.
The scholarship has traditionally provided $300 for "col-
lege-related expenses," which was intended to pay for text-
books. No more.
Now students across the state will only get $225, and in
future semesters, the stipend will depend on how the budget
looks for that year.
OK, so those scholarship recipients get to go to school for
free (at least for tuition). But for the people who depend on
that extra $300 to help out with the cost of textbooks, this is
a bit of a punch in the gut. UF's Office for Student Financial
Affairs already gave students their estimated financial
awards for the spring 2008 semester now that's all wrong.
And we're willing to bet nothing will step in to cover that
It doesn't'make sense for Florida to put the law into effect
in the middle of the academic year. If legislators had waited
until the fall, that would have made this bitter pill a lot easier
But this cut won't fix the problems plaguing Bright
Futures and the state budget. It already won't cover some
tuition increases, namely the Tuition Differential fee.To really
start saving some money, Bright Futures needs to raise its
requirements for scholarships.
This stipend slashing is just a temporary fix to a problem
that isn't going anywhere. We know we won't ever be see-
ing that $75, but with any luck, the Bright Futures program
can be fixed before another several thousand students get
screwed over because if nothing changes now, the next
time the program gets cut might be worse.

D o you know what Mitt Romney ate for lunch the

The New York Times is betting you do. In a

Letters to the Editor
Using cell phones while driving 'idiotic'
I don't think anyone can disagree that us-
ing a cell phone in general is very distracting.
This applies to cell phone use.while driving,
studying and even trying to cross the street.
The world we live in is already dangerous
enough. I mean, we've already got our plates
full with wildfires, al-Qaida and Bill O'Reilly
to worry about. Texting while driving endan-
gers our roads, and the guiltiest party of all is
Over Thanksgiving break, I decided to ride
home with someone so I could save money
on gas. Shortly after getting on the Turnpike,
I noticed the driver tapping away on her
Blackberry like it was no big deal. I let her
know that's a dangerous thing to do, but she
just shrugged it off as a joke. This kind of at-
titude is shared by many young people who
will probably continue texting away until they
crash their cars or hurt someone else.
I'm all for stupidity, as it has provided me
with many, many hours of entertainment. But
when you put other people's lives at risk, it is
a completely different story, and it is no longer
entertaining. Texting while driving is an idi-
otic and incredibly selfish habit that I witness
all the time. Why not save the text for when
you're at a red light or delegate the task to the
person riding shotgun? It would make the
roads much safer and prevent accidents.
Groups offer no apology for fliers
We co-sponsored the showing of the movie
"Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the
West," and our organizations' names ap-
peared on the fliers promoting the documen-
tary to which Vice President of Student Affairs
Patricia Telles-Irvin, on behalf of the UF ad-
ministration, responded. Many of you have no
doubt read Ms. Telles-Irvin's lengthy e-mail by
now. Our response will be shorter.
We will not apologize for the fliers. Further,
we do not owe an apology or clarification. The
fliers stated that "Radical Islam Wants You
Dead." This is a true statement. The ideal uni-
versity should support freedom of expression.
Ms. Telles-Irvin pays homage to free speech on
one hand, but on the other hand reprimands
those who use it to speak the truth.
That is a shame. The wisdom of the
administration's action, an e-mail to the en-
tire student body parroting one side's view,
represents a dangerous precedent for every
instance when someone exercises the right to
free speech. Unfortunately, UF's administra-
tion never engaged in a good-faith effort to
seek our perspective on this matter prior to
sending out this mass e-mail to every single
For us, freedom of speech is precious. Like
all other liberties, it must be defended when-
ever challenged. We will not yield.
UF Law School Republicans and
UF College Republicans
Fliers should only offend radical Islams
The recent e-mail from Ms. Telles-Irvin
regarding the sensitivity surrounding the use
of the phrase "Radical Islam Wants You Dead"
paints a dismal yet accurate picture of what
ails this campus and country. The only people
who should be offended by this phrase are
radical Muslims in self-denial.
As a Christian, I am not offended when
someone references Bible-thumpin', name-cal-
lin' preachers. This is because I acknowledge
these people exist. I also know they do not rep-
resent me. Most Muslims do not accept these
radicals as representing their faith. These radi-
cals take the Muslim faith, interpret it, deform
it and claim to do Allah's work in the name
of it. In short, radical Islamists do want to kill
you. If any true Muslims were offended, I urge
them to express their grief to the radicals, the
source of the problem.
Ms. Telles-Irvin's e-mail is the epitome of
political correctness. These nations, both the
American and the Gator, are walking a tight-
rope of political correctness, and the rope is
getting thinner and thinner. Soon we will see
a surge of spam apologizing for wearing a
certain color T-shirt on a certain day!
I believe in peace. I believe we are called to
respect each other. However, we need to stop
this obsession with re-labeling and apologiz-
ing for calling truth what it is.
Free speech protected, nice or not
Islam on Campus is an important advocate
for the vast majority of the Muslim population
who can and have been unfairly blamed for
global terrorism. For years, this group has at-
tempted to promote sensible dialogue.
However, neither they nor Ms. Telles-Irvin
should expect an apology from the UF College
Republicans. Free speech is protected whether
it is polite or not. I doubt the university would
officially admonish a student group that
impolitely advertised a film about the sins
committed by the Catholic Church or, say,
In addition, it is important to note the state-
ment "Radical Islam Wants you Dead" may be
politically incorrect, but it is true nonetheless.
Free speech itself is being threatened.
Of course, innocent Muslims have in turn
been victimized by retaliatory actions. But in
this case, no one was endangered by the film
or its advertisements. We are, however, all put
at risk by the terrorism and murder glorified
by radical Islam. To deny this or sugarcoat it is
irresponsible and dangerous.
Neither the College Republicans nor any-
one else should feel intimidated by an admin-
istration that is afraid of contentious debate.
Student groups on campus must continue to
speak their minds, whether the administration
likes it or not.

UF WOMEN'S BASKETBALL
Gators ignore fatigue, push through heavy schedule
By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
No rest for the weary.
The Gators (4-2) will play their
third game in six days when they
head to Jacksonville tonight to face
the Dolphins (4-2) at 5:30 in Veterans
UF coach Amanda Butler said
fatigue is not an excuse, but she
acknowledged that she has changed
some things in practice due to the
quick turnaround between games in
the current stretch.
"We focus a little more on half-
court (execution) as a team, getting
better," she said. "Strategizing ver-
sus what they're trying to do to us,
taking away some of their comfort
zones. As much as fatigue isn't a fac-
tor, we can't practice like we don't
have a game."
Some Gators have pretty good
reason to be tired, too.
Guards Sha Brooks and Depree
Bowden both rank in the top five
of the Southeastern Conference in
minutes played, averaging more
than 32 minutes per game. Forward
Marshae Dotson isn't too far behind,
averaging just less than 30 a game.
Bowden admitted to feeling
some fatigue in her legs, but pointed
to ice baths and trainers as ways
to help endure this busy stretch of
"We try not to think about
that," Bowden said of the fatigue.
"Anything we can do to help this
One player off the bench contin-
ues to give the Gators a boost, espe-
cially on the defensive end.
Backup point guard Lonnika
Thompson averages 2.5 steals per
game, tied for the team lead, in just
16.5 minutes per game.
Butler enjoys the flexibility that
her two-point-guard system allows.
She said each has her own style,
with Thompson always focused
on making sure her teammates are
where they should be.
Thompson enjoys frustrating the
other team's guards as they try to
bring the ball up the floor.
"Everyone doesn't like to be
pressured," Thompson said. "Being
a ball-handler and being a point
guard, I know it's trouble for the
When her players get' tired,
Butler reminds them there are actu-
ally only 40 minutes of play in the
two hours it usually takes for a game
to go from start to finish.
"Sometimes I think when you
put it like that, in very real black-
and-white terms and you think of
it like 40 minutes, you should be
able as a 20-year-old to sustain that
effort for 40 minutes," Butler said.
"And they're in great shape. Fatigue
should not be anything for us to be
POSSIBLE RETURN FOR MOSSOR:
Sophomore guard Jennifer Mossor
practiced for the first time Tuesday
since breaking her non-shooting
pinky on Oct. 27.
she's wearing a
hard splint after
to insert two pins
on Oct. 30. The
to both Mossor
and Butler, was
Mossor to see how prac-
tice went before deciding whether
the guard would return to the court
"We certainly don't want to push
too soon and risk damaging some-
thing and then losing her for another
couple of weeks," Butler said before
practice Tuesday. "It's a very com-
forting thought for the coaching staff
to have Jen back in the rotation, to be
able to look on the bench and see her
over there and be able to insert her.
She just gives us so many things be-
sides points and rebounds, just her
knowledge of the game, how physi-
cal and aggressive she is and the fact
that right now she is dying to get on
the floor is something that you can't
SMITH STEPPING IN: Butler said
forward Sharielle Smith will likely
make her second straight start
Wednesday against Jacksonville,
citing the Dolphins' small, athletic
lineup as a reason.
The forward started Monday
night in place of Aneika Henry, who
suffered a foot injury during practice
over the weekend. Smith proved to
be a dominant presence in the post,
grabbing a team-high 11 boards.

"In their mind, I think they think I'm
going to sprinkle stardust on them and
we'll just win," he said. "But it doesn't
work like that, and they have to learn
what goes into this process, and I have to
tell you, they have absolutely no due or
S idea what it's about."
Although the Gators won by 23,
Donovan said the team's offensive per-
formance was disheartening. UF shot
54 potent from the field and 43 percent
from 3-point range.
After attempting just one shot each
against FSU, sophomore Dan Werner
and guard Jai Lucas combined for 18
Werner set the tone early, hitting
three of his first five shots, but he failed
to score in the second half.
After the roughest outing of his
young career against the Seminoles,
freshman guard Nick Calathes struggled
early on. Calathes had more turnovers
(four) than he did assists (three) in the

UF men's basketball coach
After hitting the ground hard fol-
lowing a rebound attempt, Allen got
up limping and was taken to the locker
room for treatment on his ankle.
Allen would return to the bench
several minutes later, but would not re-
enter the game. The extent of his injury
was not disclosed.
"I think we have to start all over,"
Donovan said. "I have to start all over.
... Today was a 23-point win, and I don't
even know if they get and understand
what I'm talking about."
COVERAGE, from page 15
McFadden, likely the No. 1 pick in the NFL
Draft, win the Heisman over Tebow.
In fact, as each day passes, I am starting to
expect it more and more.
I will give McFadden all the credit in
the world for racking up 206 rushing yards
and three touchdowns on LSU's vaunted
That was an outstanding game.
But the Heisman Trophy does not go to
the most outstanding player in Week 13.
It goes to the most outstanding player for
Week 1 through Week 14.
Unfortunately, many voters could over-
emphasize each player's final game.
McFadden played on national TV with no
other competing games on at the same time.
Though UF played on CBS on Saturday,
almost the entire country missed Tebow's
first two scores because the Tennessee-
Kentucky game went into four overtimes and
overlapped into UF's time slot.
By the time most people tuned into the
romp at The Swamp, the game was in hand
and not really watchable for the average col-
lege football fan. V
McFadden has had a great year with 1,725
rushing yards and 15 rushing touchdowns,
both bettering his stats from a year ago, when
he finished second in the Heisman balloting.
But Tebow has had an even greater sea-
He has 3,132 passing yards, 29 passing
touchdowns and just six interceptions.
Tebow has seven more rushing touch-
downs than McFadden, and, oh yeah, ranks
second in the nation in passing efficiency.
Tebow hasn't had a game with more than
one interception, while McFadden didn't
show.up for one of his biggest games, against
The Tigers held McFadden to 43 yards
rushing on 2.5 yards per carry.
Tebow has broken records previously held
by Emmitt Smith, Herschel Walker and Rex
Grossman while dealing with a sore shoul-
der. Everything Tebow has done this year has
I can't say the same thing for any other
player in the country.

Fayson, Pupello request, obtain releases from Gators
Alligator File Photo
Former UF wide receiver Jarred Fayson faces off against Troy running back Xavier Moreland on a kick
return during the Gators' 59-31 win against the Trojans on Sept. 8.
By MIKE MCCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
Wide receiver Jarred Fayson
asked for and was granted a release
from the UF football team, a UF offi-
cial confirmed Tuesday afternoon.
The sophomore saw action in 11
of the Gators' 12 games this season
at receiver, running back and on
"There really aren't any issues
that I'm aware of," said Carla
Powell, Fayson's mother. "It was
just a decision that was discussed
among the family."
Powell said Fayson's desire to
transfer emerged in the past few
days, and she and her son vis-
ited with UF coach Urban Meyer on
Tuesday to discuss his feelings.
In addition to Fayson, redshirt
freshman tight end Trent Pupello
has also been granted a transfer.
Fayson was rated as the No. 3
receiver in the nation by Scout.comr
as a senior at Tampa Hillsborough
High, but saw little action as a fresh-
man in Gainesville.
This season, he tallied 148 yards
and three touchdowns on 12 catches,
and 89 rushing yards on 19 carries.
He played his best game against
Georgia, when he had a career-high
62 receiving yards.
Fayson didn't see action against
Florida State last Saturday due to a
hamstring injury, Powell said.
He will now seek a new te:.n,
but Powell said Fayson could stay at
UF through the spring semester. She
also said he hasn't narrowed down a
list of possible schools.
"I'm sure that there are some
schools that he's going to want to
visit," Powell said. "He doesn't have
any particular school in mind, it's
just a matter of sit-
ting down with him
and finding out his
Football If he transfers to a
Division I-A school,
Fayson will have to sit out next foot-
ball season because of NCAA trans-
fer rules. He will have two years of
"It was wonderful to be a part of
The Gator Nation," Powell said. "I'll
continue to watch and support the
Gators. It's been real."
UF ADDS COMMIT: The Gators
picked up an oral commit-
ment from Jacksonville Forrest
High's Byran Jones, according to
Scout.com. He is a two-way line-
man, and the 6-foot-2, 328-pounder
is the 13th player to orally commit
to the Gators this year.
Oral commitments are non-binding
until a letter of intent is signed on or

Hampton's season-ending injury forces Gators to adjust
By EVAN DREXLER
Marcie Hampton did not want her UF ca-
reer to end like this.
A ruptured Achilles tendon in the final
match of the regular season Saturday knocked
her out for the year, just in time for the NCAA
Championship, which starts Thursday.
An MRI on Hampton's ankle Monday
night confirmed the trainer's initial suspicions
that the injury was season-ending, UF coach
Mary Wise said.
The Gators volleyball team will have to
do without its leading attacker, who was not
available for comment Tuesday because of a
When Hampton landed awkwardly on
her left foot, setter Angie McGinnis thought
Hampton was staying on the ground because
of anger at the official's call on the play.
"After a few seconds, she tried to stand
up, and we all looked at her and she kind of
gave back out," McGinnis said. "Obviously,
panic went through all of our minds. We were
like, 'Oh crap, our No. 1 point-getter has to go
McGinnis said she has known Hampton
since seventh grade, and seeing her career end'
because of an injury was sobering.
"It was actually pretty sad for me, just be-
cause I knew that it could have been the last
time that I'll play with her," McGinnis said.
"That definitely crossed my mind that that
would be the last time I set her."
There is still a chance the two could play
together, if Hampton heals in time for national
overseas competitions during the summer.
But right now, the Gators are focused on
figuring out how to make
up for Hampton's 5.15
points per game.
McGinnis said she will
Volleyball pick up some of the extra
work, and freshmen Lauren
Bledsoe and Janine Williams
will be called on to add more to the mix.
"I think I'm going to have to spread it out
way more than I have been," McGinnis said. "I
know one of the freshmen is going to have to
come in and step up."
Wise sounded confident in Bledsoe's abil-
ity to swing in place of Hampton.
"She had two kills in the fifth game against
Long Beach (on Saturday) that were as hard
or harder than any ball that we had seen all
night," Wise said.
Still, Hampton's presence was vital in other
aspects of the game. She, along with libero
Elyse Cusack, was one of the best Gators at
receiving a serve. Wise said the team will be
able to score points, but the bigger question
mark is which player will be able to make first
contact after a serve.
'UF's chances of winning the national
championship took a similar hit on Oct. 26,
2003, when senior middle blocker Benavia
Jenkins went down with a knee injury. That
team battled back to make it all the way to the
national championship game.
But they weren't missing their leading
scorer. They still had Aury Cruz.
Southern Cal. (25-4)------
"It's a recurring theme that I would really
like to put an end to," Wise said. "But it's part
Senior Kisya Killingsworth said she is a tad
concerned about UF's chances to perform in
the national tournament without Hampton.
"I'm worried a little bit," she said. "But I
think that we have these few days in practice
to work all the different lineups that Mary
wants to go through. I think we'll be fine."
