Trustees debate extra fees
Harrison Diamond / Alligator
Mac McGriff, a member of the UF Board of Trustees, speaks to'
other trustees Thursday at Emerson Alumni Hall.
* SEVERAL FEES, INCLUDING ONE FOR
TRANSCRIPTS, WERE DISCUSSED.
By KIM WILMATH and DEVIN CULCLASURE

Bleak budgetary times have become the norm
for UF, and new financial solutions could mean
out-of-pocket fees for students.
At committee meetings of UF's Board of
Trustees on Thursday afternoon, trustees present-
ed a plan to charge several extra fees for students.
The fees will not be included in tuition or
covered by Bright Futures, a Legislature-funded
program that pays for either 75 percent or 100
percent of tuition.
Under UF statutes, UF has always been al-
lowed to charge the fees, but officials are still ne-
gotiating the details, UF Provost Janie Fouke said.
Students could now be charged $10 to obtain
a transcript copy starting in February 2008. But
extra costs for UF students might not stop there.
A $2-per-credit Distance Learning fee could be
charged for students who take online classes.
The fee would also apply to any classes that
use the e-Learning online system, even if the class
takes place in a campus lecture hall.
Student Body President Ryan Moseley, also
a UF trustee, said the fee wasn't fair in light of-a
newly approved 5 percent technology fee, which
will be charged starting next fall.
Many classes are too large to offer anything but
online sections, and students shouldn't be penal-
ized, Moseley' said. Other trustees agreed.
"If we're doing a lot of online classes because
we don't have enough faculty, it's like double
jeopardy," Mac McGriff, another trustee, said.

ing science labs or tuning pianos for music class,

Although it has been approved by the
UF students, the renewable energy fee
still has to get by a long list of officials
before it can become a reality.
During Student Government elec-
tions last spring, 78 percent of students
voted for a renewable energy fee, which
calls for a 50-cent-per-credit-hour tuition
increase to be used for renewable energy
Although it has been approved by
the UF administration, the fee must pass

Road your prayers may be answered.
The Florida Department of Transportation
is putting up $9.1 million to match funds from
Gainesville, Alachua County and UF for an $18.2
million project updating the timing of the traffic-
The project will update every traffic light in
the county in four phases, starting with the most

34th Street, 13th Street, Newberry Road and
Gainesville, which controls all the traffic sig-
nals in Alachua County, will be heading the proj-
ect and contributing up to $5 million. Alachua
County will spend $2 million on the project, and
UF will spend $3.8 million.
Phil Mann, Gainesville Traffic Operations
division manager, said the next phase will cover
intersections expected to face bad congestion by
2025. Phases three and four will cover the rest of
the traffic lights in the county.
"We're addressing what's bad today, then
what's projected to be bad," he said.

The project will also install cameras along
major intersections so engineers can study traffic
flow and create a Traffic Management Center to
house the new system, she said.

The University Police Department is inves-
tigating three burglary calls in a UF residence
A news release stated that all three inci-
dents occurred on the second floor of Trusler
Hall between 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. Wednesday.
The incidents are being handled as related
cases, the report stated.
Laptops and iPods were stolen
Public from the three rooms, the report
In one room a laptop had its
wires disconnected but was not taken because
it was locked to the desk.
UPD spokesman Capt. Jeff Holcomb said
it appears burglars checked each room to find
unlocked ones because there was no forced
The release stated there are two possible
suspects believed to be college aged that were
viewed on a Web cam by one of the laptops.
The first is a Hispanic male, about 5 feet 8
inches tall, wearing a dark colored shirt with
"scruffy facial hair," the report stated. The
other suspect is a black male wearing a white
"hoody" with blue jeans.
Holcomb advised students to keep their
doors locked to make sure this doesn't hap-
pen to them. He also said they should con-
sider buying security cables for their laptops.
UF-developed steak grows popular
By STEVEN WEINER
A steak developed at UF has become
one of the most popular steaks in the
Working with the National
Cattlemen's Beef Association and the
University of Nebraska, UF science re-
searchers led a study to help evaluate
undervalued portions of beef. The result
was the flat iron: a new, inexpensive and
fairly lean cut of steak.
The steak's sales almost doubled from
2005 to 2006, from 47 million pounds to
about 92 million pounds per year, stated
statistics compiled by Technomic Inc., a
Chicago-based research firm. The steak
has become the fifth most popular in
Dwain Johnson, a meat science pro-
fessor with UF's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences, led the study in
1999 that produced the flat iron.
Johnson said some people even pre-
fer the flat iron to the more expensive rib
eye or New York strip steaks.
He classified the flat iron as "a dia-
mond in the rough."
The study was triggered by declining
sales of cuts of shoulder beef, known as
"The cuts from the round and chuck
had really fallen off and declined pretty
significantly," Johnson said. "And that's
over two-thirds of the carcass."
Johnson added that the meat from
this area is traditionally cheaper and
used to make ground beef or pot roast.
Johnson's study identified several
muscles in Athese underused areas and
determined which would be most ap-
pealing as a steak.
Johnson's team found the flat iron to
be one of the tastiest, most tender and
leanest cuts of steak.
The team developed a simple method
for removing an undesirable area of
tough tissue that runs through the cut.
This method led to the mass production
of the flat iron steak.
Johnson categorized the flat iron as
not as fatty or expensive as a rib eye, but
not so lean as tenderloin.
The tests to determine the quality of a
piece of steak are extensive and intense,
When developing the flat iron, in-
vestigators were trained to rate steak on
such qualities as juiciness, beef-flavor
intensity and overall tenderness.
Johnson said the testers, many of
whom were graduate students, tested
about 900 different steaks over the
course of a year.
The success of the flat iron is a win-
win situation for both the consumer and
the cattle industry, Johnson said.
While cattle farmers are making
money selling the shoulder cut for more,
consumers save money by buying .a
quality steak for less than high-end rib
eye or New York strip.
Johnson said that the flat iron steak
is well suited for college students.
The steak costs about $6 per pound in
Johnson also said several restaurant
chains, such as T.G.I. Friday's, have fea-
tured the flat iron on the menu.
FLAT-IRON SALES SKYROCKET
In 1999, UF researchers helped pioneer a new cut of steak,
and its popularity has quickly gone through the roof.
Approximate number of pounds sold:
2005: 47 million
2006: 92 million
2007(so far): 90 million

Berry knows when a problem is beyond his
abilities. Although he hasn't been approached
with severe issues, such as suicidal thoughts
or an eating disorder, he said he would advise
people with those kinds of problems to contact

Dominique LeCao, a UF criminology ju-
nior, has seen Berry talking to other students.
LeCao hasn't had the chance to talk to him yet
but said he has thought about it.
LeCao says he's not sure if he would go
completely in-depth with Berry about his per-

different perspective it could provide.
"I would talk to him because strangers
have a whole different point of view of things
that are going on," he said.

Former slave discusses experiences in Hillel speech
By KORI FREDERICK
Courage, hope and faith.
These are values that abolitionist and
former slave Beatrice Fernando spoke
about at Hillel at UF on Thursday night.
Fernando was tricked into slavery in
1980 through an agency that claimed it
would get her work as a housekeeper.
She grew up poor. She lived with her
family in Sri Lanka in a home the size of a
"That night I found the courage
within me to do whatever I had to
do to get out of there. It was up to
me to survive."
The walls were made of strips of fabric,
and the roof was made of coconut husks
her mother put together.
The only thing that was solid was the
cement floor, she said.
She only completed 12th grade because
she said she was in a hurry to grow up.
"My mother said education was the only
way to get out of poverty," Fernando said.
"But did I listen? No."
At 23, she was still living at home and
now had to take care of her son. Her hus-
band left shortly after he was born.
In order to support her son and her par-
ents, she decided she should find a job.
She found an agency in Lebanon that
said it would get her a job as a house-
She was required to work for two years
in Lebanon and then would return home
with "a bag full of money," she said.
She ended up being selected to work for
a woman who she said gave her a bad feel-
ing. She begged her agent to let her work
for someone else, but he told her the wom-
an was very rich and she was lucky.
She worked hard as a housekeeper.
At first, she was. fed table scraps, but
then she was fed nothing at all.
"After the family was asleep, I would go
through the trash and eat that," Fernando
She was beaten every day. Her head was
repeatedly slammed into the wall. She was
beaten so badly she lost consciousness.
"I woke up in a pool of my own blood,"
she said. "That night I found the courage
within me to do whatever I had to do to get
out of there. It was up to me to survive."
She decided to either escape or die try-
ing. She launched herself off the fourth
floor balcony and 21 days later woke up
from a coma, paralyzed.
Three years later she was able to walk
and came to America. She said it is up to
college students to help eliminate slavery
by standing up against it. .
"This is our country," she said. "These
are our children. You are the future. You
take the stand and say no."

f you're like us here in the Department of Darts & Laurels,
you have four days to pull it all together and pass all your
classes. Oh yes, it's crunch time. If you have eight 10-
page papers to write, five exams you have to get A's on just
to get C's in those classes, and homework assignments from
September you have to beg your professor to accept, you've
got quite a weekend ahead of you. So grab your venti iced
soy mocha-frappa-whatever and stay optimistic for the next
72 hours with this week's how-the-hell-am-I-ever-gonna-
pull-this-off edition of...
We open with a her-spirit-will-fly-on-forever LAUREL for
the newly named Minerva owl butterfly. The butterfly's name
was auctioned off by UF scientists, and it was named for the
late Margery Minerva Blythe Kitzmiller. A donor who wishes
to remain anonymous paid $40,800, which will help fund more
butterfly research. Now that's what we call the Butterfly Effect.
Up next we have a now-that's-an-alternative-to-selfishness
LAUREL for Florida Alternative Breaks, a student-run service
organization that takes students on weeklong trips to places
such as Washington, D.C., and New Orleans to help out less-for-
tunate people. This program provides a great way for students
to volunteer while having a life-changing experience. What's a
four-day, binge-drinking cruise compared to a week of helping
immigrants start a new life in America?
We've got an every-time-we-sip-orange-Gatorade-we'll-
think-of-you LAUREL for Dr. Robert Cade, one of the inven-
tors of Gatorade, who died Tuesday. Just a few weeks ago, Cade
visited UF for an unveiling ceremony of a plaque honoring
Gatorade. Throughout the past 40 years, Gatorade has brought
UF $150 million in royalties, which go toward the UF College
Gatorade is single-handedly one of the most valuable inven-
tions to come out of Gainesville. The elixir has propelled our
sports teams (and other schools') to national championships.
That leaves us with just one question: Should we make our op-
ponents drink Powerade?
Perhaps Cade's family would be interested in burying him
on campus? We give an orange-and-blue-are-the-new-black
LAUREL to the proposed columbarium. The UP Foundation
is considering a plan that would allow some people to remain
on campus forever literally. The columbarium would contain
niches, which die-hard Gators fans could buy for an estimated
$3,000, to place a burial urn.
Talk about a great gift idea for that old great uncle who remi-
nisces about his time at UF way, way back in the day. Maybe UF
President Bernie Machen would want to reserve a niche he
could have it written into his contract as a bonus, we're sure.
The Gainesville City Commission election is just around the
comer, on Jan. 29 (make sure you're registered to vote by Dec.
31). This time around, not one but two students are seeking
seats on the commission. So we send how's-this-for-involve-
ment LAURELS to SFCC student Armando Grundy and UF
student Robert Agrusa, who are running for a District 3 and an
at-large seat, respectively. Of course, you shouldn't vote for a
candidate just because he or she is a student, but having people
our age on the ballot will hopefully influence more students to
give a damn. And if more students head to the polls to vote in
the city election, hopefully they'll cast votes for the state and
national parts of the ballots.
Finally, we send a we'll-finally-get-through-Archer-Road-
traffic-faster LAUREL to the traffic-light synchronizing
project we've been hearing about for years. Well, something
is finally happening. Thanks to the Florida Department of
Transportation, Alachua County, Gainesville and UF, we'll
spend less time twiddling our thumbs and more time with our
foot on the gas pedal. The first phase of the project should be
complete by summer and all four phases by 2012.
With that in mind, you better get back to studying. You've
only got 3 days, 23 hours and 50 minutes left.

recently, I was sprawled out on my couch, flipping
channels and minding my own business, when I
came across a program on The History Channel
that freaked me out of my sloth-like daze. The television
program I am referring to was, of course, about the apoca-
I should have known to switch to "Scrubs" when I
heard the deep, booming voice give the introduction
about an end-of-the-world prophecy as "Doomsday:
2012" flashed across the screen, but I put the Pringles
down and watched the show.
From what I gathered, doomsday has an exact date:
Dec. 12, 2012. I say this because apparently, the Mayans
made a calendar thousands of years ago, and it ends on
Dec. 12, 2012.
The Mayans, one of the thriving peoples in
Mesoamerica, had a thing for calendars and astronomy.
Their "long-count" calendar goes in cycles of about 5,000
years, and according to Mayan literature, each cycle has
brought about different changes in the earth. So according
to their big, bad calendar of doom, we are in the age of
the fourth cycle, which reportedly began on 3114 B.C. and
ends in 2012 on the winter solstice.
OK, so I have no idea what any of this means, but if a
mystical Mayan calendar that, according to astronomers
and scientists, has been correctly predicting astronomical
phenomena for thousands of years ends in 2012, it must
not be good.
I thought I was nerdy for being a little freaked out by
the whole doomsday thing, but my fear is nothing com-
pared to what other people are thinking. After researching
2012 a little further, I have come to the conclusion that it
is probably a bunch of baloney, because there are and
ear -are you ready?

about the Mayan calendar and the
December doomsday date.

But doomsday theories have been around since the
beginning of time. It seems that we are fascinated by the
day on which the world will actually end. If you remem-

the minute hand neared midnight on Dec. 31, 1999, we

I'm sure the same thing will happen Dec. 12, 2012.

Letters to the Editor
Most students support Obama, not Paul
A great deal of Alligator articles and
editorials recently have focused exclusively
on Ron Paul, whereas there have been zero
articles about any other candidates. An edito-
rial Wednesday reported that 34 percent of
Republican students on Facebook support
I wonder why the Alligator chose to over-
look the fact that in that same poll, Barack
Obama boasts support from 58 percent of
Facebook Democrats. It's no secret there are
more liberal college students than conserva-
In fact, 70 percent of the students who-
responded to the poll identified themselves
as Democrats. Therefore, the support for
Obama more than quadruples the support
for Paul. So, why are college students head
over heels for Paul?
The truth is, the majority of them are not.
If anything, the majority of college students
are head over heels for Obama. Perhaps the
Alligator should be more diligent in its re-
Muslims constantly fighting stereotypes
Do the organizations that sponsored
"Obsession" really expect Muslims not to be
offended? And that if we are, as one person's
letter blatantly implied, we are radicals, too?
In a society where Islam is misconstrued
and misinterpreted and plastered on the
news as a blasphemous religion, how can we
not be offended that on our campus our reli-
gion is being associated with violence?
You tell us Muslims to speak up and con-
demn it. Well, here we are, and you're not
listening. Instead, we are criticized about the
I'm not ignorant to the fact that radicals
used Islam as justification for their violence,
but apparently these organizations are igno-
rant to the fact that their posters, intentionally
or not, promote stereotypes.
Why? I'm sure the majority of students
saw them, but the majority did not attend
So, what impressions are they left with?
That Islam, radical or not, wants you dead.
The issue is not freedom of speech; it's the
way some chose to implement it. The goal
should be to educate our peers about main-
stream Islam, which is an objective of Islam
But for every step forward they take to
counteract these stereotypes, they are forced
one step back with films like these.
Please forgive me for being offended
if my religion is associated with violence.
Apparently, that constitutes no reason to be
offended at all.
Asking for apology not free-speech threat
Asking the groups responsible for recent
ads for an apology does not put free speech
in danger. This is not a question of free speech
at all. There are no consequences for these
groups for what they expressed.
If the university threatened to expel those
responsible for the fliers and e-mails, then it
would be a question of free speech. But to
demand an apology is just another exercise of
free speech and does not impinge on others'
rights to express themselves freely.

I also think it is ridiculous that we may be
charged up to $10 for a transcript. .
The technology fee and a gradual raise in
tuition is understandable, but to charge 10
bucks for a piece of paper is too much.
Maybe we should use Machen's $8,000 a
year for pimping out his car to pay for them.
Tuition differential costs more than $75
I hate to play the part of institutional
memory for the Alligator, but I remember
last spring semester when the editorial board
went ga-ga for the Academic Enhancement
Program, now known as the Tuition
How much does Tuition Differential cost?
Well, it can be as much as 40 percent of
regular tuition over four years, and overall,
the sum of regular tuition and the Tuition
Differential fee can increase tuition by no
more than 15 percent a year. Is that more than
So explain to me why the editorial board is
upset about a loss of $75 but only for some
people while-before it was for a large per-
centage increase that affects all students.
And please, don't say this is about the
problem with Bright Futures.
If that were the case, the editorial board
would have been against the Academic

'Tis the season to adopt a pet

Local pet adoption agencies are giving Gainesville
residents a chance to bring a pet home.
About 300 pets will be up for adoption at the
"Home for the Holidays Adopt-A-Thon" this week-
end at The Oaks Mall.
The event will take place behind Macy's on
Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from
noon to 4 p.m.
Becky Goodman, the executive director for the
Alachua County Humane Society, said the organi-

Goodman said the organization has been planning

"This is just the best opportunity to get the most

Their holiday adopt-a-thon has been around for
about 7 years, and it coincides with lams Home 4 the

hand to answer questions.
In addition to providing financial support, the
adopt-a-thon will help relieve shelters of overcrowd-

"The more room we create, the more animals we
can transfer from the shelter and save," she said.

After the students voted in favor of
the fee last spring, it was taken to the
Student Senate, which passed a resolu-
tion in support of the fee this semester.
Ryan Moseley, Student Body presi-
dent and a member of the Board of
Trustees, said the road to getting the fee
enacted will be a long one.
While waiting for the fee to make its
way up the chain of command, SG is
not "sitting on their laurels," he said.
The university has already contract-
ed with RTS to get buses to switch to
biodiesel fuel, which will start the next
school year, Moseley said.
They have discussed putting solar
panels up to light the various fields on
campus, he said.
After students vote through the
survey on the best uses of the money,
Moosbrugger said they will go back to
the administration with the results.
"They want to make sure we have
everything covered," she said. "That's
why we're doing the survey. That's
why we did the forum. All these things
are really helpful."
Moosbrugger said they want to see
how students think the money from the
fee could beat be used. There are five
areas on the survey that students can
The first area it could be used for is
With solar technology, the univer-
sity could thermally heat its water, use
solar panels on the roofs of buildings to
generate heat or use solar panels on the
parking garages and fields to provide
energy for lighting.
The money can also be used to con-
vert waste to energy.
Ann Wilkie, an associate professor
in the College of Agricultural and Life
Sciences, is working with an anaerobic

digests material to turn sludge and
trash on campus into methane gas,

Panel discusses Islam
By ILEANA MORALES
Students and faculty gathered Thursday for a
panel discussion about misconceptions of Islam
in response to the controversial promotion of a
movie about "Radical Islam."
The panel, sponsored by the Council on
American-Islamic Relations and Islam On
Campus, addressed the controversy that arose
when students hung posters advertising the
movie, "Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against
Posters promoting the movie, shown on
campus Nov. 13, had the phrase "Radical Islam
Wants You Dead!"
Matt Klein, a justice on the Student
Government Supreme Court, sent out an e-mail
before the movie was shown accusing students
of removing the fliers and identified them with
"Radical Islam." He later apologized when stu-
dents took offense to the e-mail.
Before the discussion, Yaser Ali, president of
Islam On Campus, said the accusations in the
movie posters and e-mails used "sensational lan-
guage" and could threaten students' safety.
"It insinuated that our organization promotes
terrorist ideologies or condoned terrorist ideolo-
gies," Ali said. "That couldn't be further from the
Dave Kratzer, associate vice president for stu-
dent affairs, said the discussion was a small step

sion was a positive way to handle the recent
negative situation on campus.

Rebecca Goldman, both students
in The Documentary Institute, are
working on finishing up their first
The film, which also serves
as their thesis, follows the life of
Mark Lunsford, whose daughter
Jessica was abducted on Feb. 23,

Lunsford, who became an ac-
tivist after his daughter's death,
started a foundation in her name.
Dvir used to live in Homosassa,
where Jessica was killed. He was
writing a story on Lunsford for the
St. Petersburg Times when he was
thinking about entering the docu-
"So that idea popped imme-
diately into my head. Wow, this
could be a documentary," Dvir

Against All Odds
In pursuing a law degree from UF, a mother also pursues a better life
While most students are worrying ..
about what color iPod to buy, Kelley
Kaye Hasson Abramowich is worrying
about providing a better life for her
lMenwhile, she's also trying to sur- .4a
vive the heavy demands of UF's Levin .
College of Law. .
A custody battle with her husband,
from whom she is separated, is an added
stress on top of those she already deals
with as a law student.
"The custody exchange is the most
anxious activity I do all week," she
After switching religions,
Abramowich is not on speaking terms
with her family, so a normal network of.
s port is missing from her life.
When she told family members she
wanted to be a lawyer, "they thought I
was crazy," she said.
Abramowich sees her struggle as a .,.
challenge to conquer.
"If it wasn't hard, everyone would be
doing it," she said. "If it wasn't hard, it
wouldn't be worth doing."

season about his future at UF, and they sat
down with Meyer on Tuesday to discuss
"There's a chance he's going to look for
an opportunity to transfer to a school where
he can play right away," Mullen said.
Waggener was rated -a four-star junior
college quarterback at Glendora (Calif.)

for playing time this season behind Tim
Tebow, but he broke his foot early in spring

he can go and play next
Mullen year," Mullen said.
To do so, Waggener would have to trans-
fer to a Division I-AA or Division IU school,
where NCAA rules wouldn't force him to
sit out for a season.
Former quarterback Ingle Martin made
a similar move in 2004, leaving UF for
Division I-AA Furman.
"I think he's going to really look hard at
what options are out there," Mullen said.
"And if something looks good, then I think
he would (transfer)."
Waggener has also talked to Tebow
about his thoughts concerning a transfer.
"You want to be loyal, but you want to
go somewhere and compete," Tebow said.

Center excited to return home
* THE GATORS WILL FACE VERMONT
TONIGHT IN TAMPA.
By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
When the UF men's basketball team heads
to Tampa today to take on Vermont, all eyes
will be on center Marreese Speights.
The St. Petersburg native will play in front
of a home crowd for the second time in two
years, but this year promises to be a different
"There's more people this year, way more,"
Speights said. "It's going to be real exciting. It's
going to feel different, but I just have to go out
there and play ball."
Last season, Speights entered the St. Pete
Times Forum as a seldom-used freshman, but
he did play a then-career-high 14 minutes in
the game. He tallied 8 points and five rebounds
as the Gators defeated Florida A&M 72-57.
This year, however, Speights heads home
as the centerpiece of a young Gators team. He
leads UF in both points (14.6) and rebounds
(eight) per game. Speights said he's excited for
the game, and happy to be in the spotlight.
"I'm going to try to not be too charged up,"
he said. "In the locker room I'll probably be real
charged up, but when I get to the court I'll get
humble real fast."
Speights said he recognizes how vital he is
to UF's undersized squad. In the loss to Florida
State, Speights only attempted four shots.
"The team needs someone down low, and
I'm the only big man," he
said. "So I got to go down
there and give the team a

Vermont (2-4) may be best known for its

I was too excited beating Florida State
to worry about that," he said with a
He still threw at practice, though he
didn't take snaps, and he said handing
off the ball is also a challenge. His first

travels to Louisville on Sunday at
2 p.m. after disappointing losses at
Nebraska and Jacksonville.
The Cornhuskers thrashed them
90-63 on Nov. 17, and the Dolphins
followed it up with an 11-point win
Players and coaches cited the
mental aspect of the game as the
culprit for the lack of success on
In both games, the Gators al-
lowed their opponents to go on
game-changing runs and seemed
helpless to stop them.
Against the Cornhuskers, UF
closed the gap to 38-34 early in the
second half. But then the Gatorsal-
lowed Nebraska to score 9 straight
points, later followed by a 22-4 run
that put the game out of reach.
Jacksonville broke a tie with 6:13
left by pouring in 8 points in a row,
and the Gators never recovered
from that run, either.

posed when things aren't going

"I'm not sure," Bowden said.
"We've got to figure it out by

she said. "It doesn't necessarily

BITTERSWEET RETURN: Jennifer
Mossor played for the first time this
season Wednesday night against
Jacksonville after missing the first
six games due to injury.
The sophomore guard broke her
left (non-shooting) pinky Oct. 27.
"It felt really good (to be back),
but wish we could've come back
and won," she said. "I've just got
to get back in the swing of things.
I know it's going to take time, but
I'm ready for the challenge."
Team works to fill Hampton's role as UF advances
* THE GATORS ARE SET TO FACE
OKLAHOMA IN THE SECOND ROUND.
By EVAN DREXLER
Marcie Hampton stood the entire time.
Despite rupturing her Achilles tendon in
Saturday night's match, the senior outside
hitter preferred to lean on her crutches rath-
er than sit down during UF's opening-round
match of the NCAA Tournament.
The Gators, playing without Hampton
for the first time all season, gave her
something to cheer about as they de-
feated College of Charleston 3-0 (30-
22, 30-28, 30-14) on, Thursday night.
The No. 10 Gators (28-2) move on to the
second round of the Tournament, where they
will play No. 23 Oklahoma tonight at 7:00.
Oklahoma defeated Florida A&M
3-1 in the early match Thursday
(30-25, 32-30, 29-31, 30-14).
UF's match stayed close --at first, but the
Gators finished strong.
Charleston's season came to an end on an
attack error in Game 3.
Every UF player chipped in for Hampton,
and the Gators were even wearing
Hampton's No. 12 on the tips of their shoes.
Three Gators finished in double-digits for
Seniors Amber McCray and Kisya
Freshman outside hitter Callie Rivers turned
in a double-double with 18 kills and 11 digs.
"I think that everyone on our team
stepped up, because not only one person
can fill (Hampton's) shoes," Rivers said.
"Obviously she was a really big part of
our team. I think everyone did something
extra to make up for her not being there."
Freshman middle blocker Lauren Bledsoe
and junior Christina Diaz, rarely used play-
ers when Hampton is healthy, saw plenty of
time on the court.
Bledsoe had five kills
and Diaz added five digs.
Even though Hampton
Volleyball was not directly involved
in the action, she played
a large role in the Gators'
She helped out Bledsoe with strategy and
pointed out weaknesses-in Charleston's de-
fense, Wise said.
"'Marcie Hampton is 24 hours removed
from a major surgery, and she's on the
bench," UF coach Mary Wise said. "That
tells you a little bit about Marcie and
how much she's given to this program
and how invested she is in our success."
Game 3 began well for the Gators when
they jumped out to a 7-3 edge following a
Kelsey Bowers solo block.
Charleston called a timeout to stop
the bleeding, but freshman defen-
sive specialist Erin Fleming contin-
ued to serve as the Gators scored nine
straight points to take the lead to 12-4.
It was 19-6 before Charleston decided to
use its second timeout, but by then it was
already too late.
Charleston played relatively error free in
the first two games, and Wise noticed.
"Usually in a 30-point game, you can
expect a team is going to give you anywhere
between 7 and 10 points in unforced errors,"
Wise said. "They played very disciplined."
