* RYAN MOSELEY IS HALF-
WAY THROUGH HIS TERM.
By ILEANA MORALES
Since his inauguration in May,
Student Body President Ryan
Moseley has completed about
half of his platform goals.
Moseley and his administra-
tion have completed 10 of the
Gator Party's 22 platform goals
from the spring and fall elections.
Moseley said one of his big-
gest successes so far is helping to
build a sustainable campus.
Regional Transit System buses
will be running on biodiesel fuel
to increase fuel efficiency and de-
crease air pollution.
Another of his biggest accom-
plishments, he said, was extend-

The construction of University Corners was de-

gram called into constitutional question by a Florida
Supreme Court case in September.
Construction has halted without the guar-

from the Community Redevelopment Agency's

times known as TIP.

Darabi, though, said no changes will be final until
the court case is decided.
"We have made no decisions," he said. "The proj-

The reimbursement has a present value of $37
million. But since it would be paid over 20 years, it
would be worth about $98 million at the end of that
In October 2005, the expected cost of the project
was $1.87 million, an evaluation by the Community

Gainesville sets aside $25,000 for homeless shelters
By DANIELLE NAVARRETE
Alligator Contributing Writer
With the chill of winter approaching, the
homeless of Gainesville may be left out in the
cold, but help is on the way.
The Gainesville City Commission set
aside $25,000 to provide supplemental shel-
ter for people in need this winter.
One joint proposal was received and will
be awarded to St. Francis House and the
Alachua County Housing Authority, said Jim
Hencin, manager of the Block Grant Division
with the city of Gainesville.
St. Francis House is one of about 20 local
agencies that offer bed space to those home-
less, Hencin said. At normal capacity, St.
Francis House maintains 35 beds, but with
the additional winter funding, the shelter will
set up 24 additional cots when the tempera-
ture drops to 45 degrees or below, he said.
The Alachua County Housing Authority
will also provide vouchers to the elderly
and to people with health problems for a
one-night stay at a local motel or hotel to be
paired up in double occupancy rooms at the
cost of $40 a night, he said.
Hencin said spots are offered on a nightly
basis, and people can go back each night.
St. Francis will provide a meal in the
evening and another one in the morning,
and those staying in motels can receive these
meals at the shelter, as well.
The supplemental plan is a step in
the right direction, but it's not adequate
to offer assistance to everyone in need,
said Jon DeCarmine, executive director
of Gainesville/Alachua County Office on
"Access to shelter is a right, not a
privilege to afford one group over
executive director Gainesville/Alachua
County Office on Homelessness.
The additional beds may hold an extra 50
people, but leave about 300 people still with-
out shelter, he said.
Shelters with limited space don't make
room for pets and extra belongings, he said,
so leaving things behind to be stolen or
ruined in the weather is not a choice every
person is willing to make.
The 45-degree requirement also is not
ideal when 46-degree rainy weather can be
just as threatening, he said.
"Access to shelter is a right, not a privi-
lege to afford one group over another,"
Local churches can participate by allow-
ing groups of 20 to stay for up to two weeks.
DeCarmine said his office has called about
315 churches for help but has gotten little

PERFORMED A STUDY.

Overdosing on speed or Ecstasy

been given overdoses of metham-

"This new type of abuse is
an alarming thing, especially in
Gainesville," Kobeissy said.
Kobeissy said it's possible to
mistakenly take a high dose of
Ecstasy or speed in a club.
"Sometimes, when you go to a

a pure pill. You don't know what
you're given," Kobeissy said.
Matthew Warren, a graduate
student, began this research with
Mark Gold, chief doctor in the UF
division of addictive medicine,
more than five years ago.
Warren said the message of this
research is clear: Overdosing on
club drugs can be lethal.
"People need to understand that
an overdose of methamphetamine
or ecstasy can be as damaging or
worse than a head-on motor-ve-
hide collision," Warren said.

Program aims to empower sexually assaulted men
* THE SUPPORT GROUP WILL BEGIN
MEETING IN JANUARY.
By KRISTIN NORTON
Alligator Contributing Writer
It was 1969 when Jay Herron was raped
for the first time in a detention-center bath-
Herron, then 18, was straight out of boot
camp in the Navy and on leave the day before
New Year's Eve.
He was to take a bus from Norfolk, Va., to
his parents' house in Washington, D.C., but
a blizzard caused a life-changing miscom-
munication, resulting in his arrest for being
away without official leave.
After being incarcerated in the detention
center that night, he said he continued to be
sexually assaulted for the next two months.
It was more than 30 years before Herron,
now 56, dealt with his experience, which
caused relationship problems, unemploy-
ment and substance abuse in his adult life,
"The crime doesn't stop because someone
is gratified," he said. "It continues through-
out their lives."
In an effort to raise awareness about male
sexual assault and to give men a place to talk
about their past experiences, Alachua County
Victim Services is forming a support group
for adult male survivors of sexual abuse that
will start in January.
The group's meetings will consist of an
hour-and-a-half-long session each week for
Herron did not talk about his experience
after it happened because the first time he
tried, he was laughed at.
People think "this kind of thing doesn't
happen to men," he said.
The sad thing about it, he said, is there are
probably countless men who are just afraid to
Most survivors know their attacker, so the
biggest thing taken away from them is trust,
Survivors have to learn to trust again. It
is difficult, but the support group will help,
Herron did not find any support for
his experience until a routine check-up at
a Department of Veterans Affairs Hospital
three years ago.
He was asked if he suffered from depres-
sion, and he said "sure." He was then asked
if he would want someone to talk to, and he
again said yes.
But instead of getting a listening ear,
Herron was given a bottle of pills to ease his
depression, which he dumped in the toilet,
When he reported back and told the VA
what he had done, he was sent to a psychia-
trist, who gave him more pills.
He flushed those down the toilet, too.
He wrote the VA, saying that he did not
see the point of the pills. He had already
experienced all the drugs and alcohol he
"In the morning, the drugs were gone, but
the memory was still there,"
Local he said.
News The memories of his as-
saults have molded his life in
many ways, he said. It is almost unbearable
for him to go into public places because he
thinks of his past and gets scared.
One day, he was in The Oaks Mall and
could not leave because he was too afraid. He
found a pay phone and called 911.
"They treated me like I was a nutcase,"
Herron said of the emergency personnel who
arrived, "but I wasn't a nutcase."
Herron is now on the Alachua County
Rape and Sexual Assault Advisory Board.
Rita Lawrence, a victims-advocate coun-
selor, said he is one of the main forces behind
the formation of the support group for adult
Lawrence, co-facilitator of the support
group, said Alachua County has never
formed a support group. for male survivors
She said men have attended the Survivors
of Rape Trauma support group in the past,
but because the group is mostly women, it
did not meet the specific needs of men.
Men have different needs from female
survivors because of stereotypes that are
based on gender, Lawrence said.
Women are not necessarily labeled as be-
ing powerful, but men are, so that is an issue
that will apply more specifically to them as
they are dealing with their past, she said.
Women also have more opportunities for
support and counseling and feel safer talk-
ing about their past experiences. Men have
very few safe places to discuss sexual assault,
The support group will provide a safe
place for survivors to talk about sexual
trauma, which "just shatters their identity,"
They will learn that what happened to
them was wrong, she said. The main goal for
the program is "to empower survivors to re-
claim their lives and develop an identity that
creates meaning in their lives," she said.

Moseley and the Gator
Party pass the test
It's been seven months. Do you know what your Student
Body president has been up to?
We'll give credit where credit is due: Ryan Moseley has
accomplished much more than some of his predecessors.
Luckily, we've got a copy of the Gator Party's platform-from
the spring election. We pulled it up to grade Moseley and the
Gator Party on what we think are the most important parts.
Investigate costly CD course packs: C+. Moseley has writ-
ten an in-depth investigative report on this, but now the Faculty
Senate has the situation locked. Good job on the legwork, but
now Gator needs to see it through.
Improve Institute of Black Culture / La Casita facilities: C-.
SG got companies to donate computers and furniture, yes, but
what the facilities really need is money for renovation.
Revive Chomp the Vote: A. Chomp the Vote is one of the
most cost-efficient organizations on campus, as well as one of
the most vital. There was no excuse for SG to ignore this group
in the past, and we're glad it has seen a revival this year.
Online advising appointments for all colleges: D. It doesn't
seem like anything's happened with this one yet, but we're sure
SG is still thinking about it, right? Plenty of offices on campus
do this; it's time they all do.
Build a sustainable campus: A. This seems to be one issue
this SG has taken to heart. Biodiesel for buses, solar panels for
fields and adding more recycling bins are a good start. We'd
like to see SG support more paper-recycling bins and encourage
more conservation, though. That means turning off lights, rais-
ing the thermostat and monitoring water usage.
Cameras in Commuter and Park & Ride lots: F -but we're
glad about that. This is one goal we thought was a little, um,
dumb, so we're glad SG abandoned it in favor of GPS tracking
for buses, for which it scores an A. We just hope it's actually
On our 100 percent, completely objective grading scale (it
involves a secret, highly scientific computer algorithm, so don't
even ask), we give Moseley and his party a B. We'll even give
Moseley a few extra-credit points for that great head of hair.
But he and the Gator Party better not get complacent
they've still got a lot of work to do in the spring.

Trustees will re-evaluate proposed fees

What we're pissed about this week:
One person always ends up staying up till 4 a.m. while everyone else gets
wasted downtown. No one learns anything and everyone gets pissed off.
Enough is enough.
We don't have class on Saturdays. Why do we have exams on Saturdays?
Exams at 7:30 a.m.:
We were up studying till 4 (maybe working on a group project), and now we
have to get out of our warm beds and trudge into an ice-cold classroom? You've
got to be kidding us.
Tons of research papers to write, zero library books to be found:
How is a class of 20 students supposed to share four books and each write a
10-page paper? Yeah, impossible.
Mind-numbing assignments with no clear purpose:
Are those worksheets really necessary? Or could this time be better spent
working on the above paper?

Fees necessary for improvements
It's getting really old to read com-
plaints about UF's costs and fees while si-
multaneously reading complaints about a
budget deficit and erroneous comparisons
of either of those numbers to UF President
Bernie Machen's compensation.
How do you expect UF to overcome a
budget shortfall without charging more
money? Furthermore, I don't know what
that "performance bonus" entails, either,
but I'm guessing it's his ability to earn
massive amounts of fundraising money.
UF is a remarkably efficient public uni-
versity. Take a quick look at schools that
offer a comparable quality of education.
You'll notice UF charges half as much in
tuition as nearly all of them, in addition to
having some of the lowest costs for room
All this on top of the fact that UF is
composed of a greater proportion of in-
state students who pay less money. This
doesn't even take into account that the
vast majority of students here don't pay
At some point, you get what you pay
- for. In order to offer Florida's top students
the best possible education, UF needs
more money. Until it comes from tuition
increases, it's going to come from other
sources: fees and fundraising.
Paul: Abortion for states to decide
This letter is in response to Elizabeth
Ruggieri's letter from Monday. Abortion
is an on-going issue one most people
have a justifiable position on one way or
the other. There will never be an objective
"right" or "wrong" answer.
This is why Ron Paul's stance is ap-
propriate and in line with his support for
states' rights. He has made it clear that
he believes it is not a federal issue, and,
although I am pro-choice, I agree because
he's made it clear he would not hinder
anyone's right to travel to another state to
have an abortion.
People tend to think in terms of "my
way" or "your way," but really, we can
have it both ways. If you don't like Paul's
stance on abortion, then please don't let
him govern your state.

UF open to advice from SDS I
* THE GROUP MET WITH UF'S
By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
Members of UF's Investment Committee
told UF protesters Monday they were open
to suggestions about socially responsible
Members of Students for a Democratic
Society, an activist group known as SDS,
have been protesting UF's investing strate-
gies since October.
SDS members have asked UF to make its
investments more transparent to ensure it
isn't supporting companies that contribute
to the war in Iraq or global warming.
At the investment committee's meeting
Monday afternoon, protesters handed out
their plan for responsible investing. The
plan includes creating a committee of UF
students, faculty and alumni to advise the
Board of Trustees, UF's highest governing
body, on socially responsible investing.
"We can still talk about that and think
about that as an investing strategy without
divulging our investment strategy to every-
body," said Dave Kratzer, UF associate vice
"We can still talk about that and

strategy without divulging our invest-
ment strategy to everybody."

Kratzer told protesters they should
take their ideas to the directors of the UF
Investment Corp., known as UFICO.

tions collected by the UF Foundation.
City incentives contested in court
CORNERS, from Page 1
The project is currently planned to include
400 condos ranging from $198,000 to $1.2
million. About 200 of those will be "condotels,"
which can be rented by the day. It will include
about 100,000 square feet of retail space.
Waterfalls would cascade into the plaza and
run between pools on the fourth to the third
For now, the waterfalls are still in the plans.
But without the money from the city, the proj-
ect would have to be scaled back, Rabell said.
"This is probably the biggest
roadblock we've hit."
Bosshardt Realty team member
Though the condos were once completely
booked, Rabell said, reservations are down to
about 50 percent with the hold-up in construc-
tion. He estimated 20 to 25 percent would come
back if the court case were overturned.
"This is probably the biggest roadblock
we've hit," he said.
Challenged By The Court
The court case, Strand v. Escambia County,
was heard in September by the Florida
Supreme Court, said Kelly Heward, a spokes-
woman for the Community Redevelopment
Agency, which was going to fund the incen-
Since 2004, the Transformational Project
Incentive Program funded projects that "trans-
formed" the area by reimbursing property tax
money over 15 or 20 years, she said.
Florida cities are not allowed to reim-
burse property tax money over more than
a year without a voter referendum, but the
Community Redevelopment Agency had been
considered a separate entity. The court case
Projects that were already approved for
the money were grandfathered in, she said,
but University Comers had not signed a final
The idea behind the program was to revi-
talize four areas of Gainesville, Heward said:
College Park and University Heights, Eastside,
Fifth Avenue and Pleasant Street, and down-
The program was intended to last for 20 to
30 years, she said.
"Once a few projects are in the area and that
area's starting to revitalize, thatll encourage
other people to come in and do the same on
their own," she said.
If projects met criteria, the Community
Redevelopment Agency would determine how
much funding the project would receive based
on a point system.
After the project was completed, the
Community Redevelopment Agency would
pay the money by reimbursing a percentage of
property taxes over 15 or 20 years. The percent-
age came from the difference in the property
taxes after the completion of the project and the
original property taxes.
Moving Out, Moving In
Before the court case, the project had dis-
placed 19 other businesses to dear space for
Randy Akerson, owner of Burrito Bros.
Taco Co., used to have a storefront on the cor-
ner. Now he operates out of the Presbyterian
Student Center about a block away.
When he first moved, he said he didn't
know if he intended to seek space in one of
University Comers' retail sections.
"Nobody knew when University Comers
was going to be built, and nobody had any
notion at the time the kind of rent University
Comers was going to want," he said.
He said he's happy operating out of the
center, but knows now he could never afford
the rent University Comers is asking. He said
he doesn't think many of the comer's other
former businesses could, either.
Rabell said commercial space in University
Comers could cost as much as $45 a square foot
"It's prime location and it's going to be very
expensive," he said.
A Work In Progress
Rabell said the project could be finished by
2010, but Darabi and Anderson lose money
every day they're not building.
Anderson said if the court case is over-
turned, ground could be broken by late sum-
mer or early fall of 20080.
If not for the case, he said, they might have
started by now, or at least March or April 2008.
Although the project has met with ob-
stacles, Rabell said he doesn't think it's taking
too long. A similar condo project he worked on
in Daytona Beach, called Ocean Walk, took six
years to complete, he said.
"Big projects are not something you can do
overnight," he said.

Donna Waller, professor of the class, said Thurman will
be speaking at 11 a.m.

Waller said because she started her career as a math
teacher at Dunnellon Middle School, Thurman loves talk-

from both SFCC and UF, Waller said.

Michelle Daniel, a sophomore at SFCC and a member of
Waller's class, said she is excited to hear Thurman speak.

Soda tabs portray U.S. debt

What began as a friendly competition has now

Jennifer Nestler, an environmental science
and zoology senior and president of UF College
Democrats, challenged her mom to collect soda-
can tabs for charities.
But after collecting more than 4,000, they made
the decision to do something important with the
tabs before donating them, she said.
Nestler decided she wanted to create a tangible
representation of the debt in the United States,
which is more than $9 trillion.
The UF College Democrats have joined in her
goal, now called "Keeping Tabs on the National
The dub plans to collect 30,000 tabs, which rep-
resents one U.S. citizen's dollar share of the debt
Anyone can participate by donating soda tabs,
Nestler said. Contributions of tabs have been re-
ceived from all over the world, including countries
such as Australia, Japan and South Africa.
The local Democratic Executive Committee has
been instrumental in collecting as well, she said.
More than 6,000 tabs have been collected so far,
When the goal of 30,000 has been reached and
the campaign is completed, the tabs will be dis-
played at a location yet to be determined.
She hopes to draw attention to the national debt
problem with the project's display, she said.
"By seeing firsthand how large the

thing really needs to be done about
our country's financial status."

Sustainability includes holiday cards and football
This holiday season, University of
Florida faculty, staff and students can help
the environment and spread holiday cheer.
As part of UF's ongoing commitment
to sustainability, a selection of UF-themed
holiday cards is available on the Web
html), said Dan Williams, director of mar-
keting. Sending e-cards is both economi-
cally and environmentally positive.
"The essence is saving the paper and
postage associated with sending traditional
holiday cards," said Williams. "The whole
idea was to advocate our commitment to
campus sustainability in real ways."
Each holiday, 2.65 billion paper cards
are sold in this country. By sending e-
cards, we can greatly reduce that impact
on the environment while saving money,
"Enough holiday cards are printed in
one holiday season to fill Ben Hill Griffin
Stadium to the top," Williams said.
UF President Bernie Machen and First
Lady Chris Machen are also concerned
about the impact that holiday cards
can have on the environment, and on
"The price of stamps and the immense
use of paper really made us stop and
think," said Chris Machen. "So many cards
are opened and then thrown in the trash.
We just tried to think of a better way."
Between Thanksgiving and Christmas,
the U.S. Postal Service expects to deliver
approximately 20 billion pieces of mail, ac-
cording to a Postal Service report. This im-
mense volume of cards and packages results
in great amounts of paper waste, which can
be reduced with e-cards.
Due to state funding cuts, available
university monies sometimes need to be di-
rected to expenses more vital than postage.
"Since we see and speak to so many of
our Florida friends and family, we felt that

Each game generates a huge carbon
footprint, and UF became the first uni-

By working with the International Car-

the game generated about 1,750 metric
tons of carbon dioxide, which equals
approximately 3.8 million pounds. The

was generated by fans traveling to the

To offset carbon emissions of the game,
UF partnered with the Florida Forestry
Association and Environmental Defense,
an environmental advocacy organization,
to arrange for 18 acres of land to be set
aside as a pine forest for 10 years. The
team calculated that this would be enough
land and time to absorb the game-related
UF supporters Jim and Winston Bailey
are responsible for the land, part of a
100-acre tract, the remainder of which may
be used for future carbon-emission related
projects. As compensation, Environmental
Defense will pay the Baileys to manage the
forest for 10 years.

The Network for Pancreatic Organ
Donors, or nPOD, is the College of
Medicine's new center for international
study of the human pancreas and its
relation to diabetes, said Mark Atkinson,
director of nPOD.
"The pancreas plays a central role in
diabetes, as it acts like a brain telling the
rest of the body how to react to food,"
Atkinson said. "It produces insulin, but
in people with type 1 diabetes the body's
own immune system attacks the insulin-
producing cells, so your body can't produce
The UF center acts as a clearinghouse
for pancreas study, as organs are received
and studied, and tissues are sent out to
"Gainesville is like a FedEx hub for

country. We take in and process them, and
then send some of the tissues onward for

Associate dean wins
The associate dean of student affairs in
the University of Florida's College of Engi-
neering is one of fewer than a dozen people
nationwide to receive a Presidential Award
for Excellence in Science, Mathematics and
Jonathan Earle received the award in a
White House ceremony in November. He
and the other awardees also met with Presi-
dent George W Bush in the Oval Office.
The award is aimed at recognizing
educational leaders or programs that have
demonstrated outstanding achievement
in mentoring minority, female or disabled
students who are traditionally underrepre-
sented in science, mathematics or engi-
neering. The awardees received grants of
$10,000 and a presidential commemorative
certificate. The award is administered by
the National Science Foundation.

Although not his only innovation, Earle
is credited with the creation of the En-
hanced Preparation for Undergraduate Pro-
gram, or STEPUP program, which seeks
to give minority students assistance with,
in Earle's words, "college survival skills."
Such skills include study habits, study skills
and extra preparation and assistance with
common engineering assignments such as
working in teams.

spread offense and not his own skill. Tebow
will make Jones eat those words in the season
opener when he throws for a school-record
500 yards and scores eight touchdowns. Or
maybe that will prove Jones' theory? Either'
way, Hawaii goes down.
4. Dec. 6: SEC Championship Game,
UF/Georgia vs. Auburn/Alabama: A lot
of people will tab UF as the favorite in the
SEC next season, and rightfully so. But I'm
not about to argue that a year early. All I
will say is-that the East Division will likely
come down to the Florida-Georgia game in
Jacksonville, and the West will likely come
down to the Iron Bowl. I see LSU taking a
bit of a drop off next year after it loses most
of its key parts. I will say this definitively,
however, I think the winner of the SEC will
go to the national title game. The rest of the
country has realized that the SEC is the best
conference. Following the recent trend, ex-
pect the 2009 BCS Championship Game to
pit the best team from the SEC against the
best team from the rest of the country.
5. Dec. 13: Tim Tebow repeats as Heisman
winner, and why not? Tebow welcomes back
All-SEC offensive lineman Phil Trautwein
and running back Mon Williams and adds
in Emmanuel Moody to the offense. Darren
McFadden and Colt Brennan should be
gone next year, leaving West Virginia team-
mates Steve Slaton and Pat White and Big 12
quarterbacks Sam Bradford, Chase Daniel
and Colt McCoy as Tebow's primary com-
petition. Georgia running back Knowshon
Moreno might have a say in it, too.

rushing touchdown, and his squad became just another top-
rAhked casualty in a crazy college football season.
Tebow, on the other hand, completed his regular season
with 351 total yards and five touchdowns in a 45-12 rout of
UF wide receiver Andre Caldwell said the contrast be-
tween the players' latest performances cements Tebow's
"(Tebow) should win the Heisman," Caldwell said. "He
doesn't do anything but get better when the lights are on
But still not everybody is sold.
During ESPN's Bowl Selection Special on
Sunday night, Hawaii coach June Jones called
Tebow a "system quarterback" and said he is
Football not a natural passer.
While Hawaii's signal caller Colt Brennan
will probably be a Heisman finalist with his 38 touchdowns
and 14 interceptions, he is probably not in contention to win
That's not surprising considering the disparity in talent
between the Southeastern Conference defenses that Tebow
has faced and the Western Athletic Conference foes that
Brennan has carved up with ease.
It's safe to say Tebow heard Jones' comments.
When asked about Hawaii's run-and-shoot offense,
Tebow gave a half smirk.
"In high school, my numbers weren't too bad," Tebow
joked. "I don't know. It depends on your system. [Brennan
is] a good quarterback who runs a good systnm."7
When groups of teammates get together at various ven-
ues Saturday to see if their quarterback will win it, they'll all
b~,oping Tebow comes home with the trophy.
"It's not everyday that you get another Heisman," de-
fensive end Duke Lemmens said. "I'm definitely not going
to have any other plans that night. It's really hard to argue
against what he's done. Heisman isn't about if you're a
sophomore or a junior or a senior or even if you're a true
freshman. It's about who the best player is in college foot-
ball. If they hold [his age] against him, that's going to make
me mad personally."
HOOPS, from page 23
"I think it was great the way they
attacked us on drives, attacked us
physically," Donovan said. "They
went after loose balls. They went
after rebounds. It reminded me of an
SEC game. ... I hope it's a wake up
for our frontcourt."
Although the Gators out-rebound-
ed the Dolphins 33-25, Donovan said
his team was manhandled in the

game would be surprised we out-
rebounded them," he said. "If any-

team is, I think everyone would say
Speights, who had 16 points and
seven rebounds, was at the center of
Donovan's criticism. Donovan said
Jacksonville's Marcus Allen got the
best of the Gators' big man and that
his numbers on the night are deceiv-
"Anybody who watched the
game would be surprised
we out-rebounded them."
UF men's basketball coach
"I'm not going to be disappointed
or upset with Marreese, but it is what
it is with him," Donovan said. "I
don't think it's Marreese's personal-
ity to be a smash-mouth player and
go in there and bang.
"He's a great teammate he's a
piece to the puzzle. But I don't think
as a sophomore he's a guy that you
can sit there and say, Wow, we're go-
ing to put the house on his back and
let him carry us up the mountain.'"
The crowd, among the smallest so
far this season, was relatively quiet
during most of the game until a ques-
tionable technical foul was given to
Chandler Parsons for hanging on the
rim after a dunk.
"I talked to the ref and told him to
just watch the replay," Parsons said.
"I pointed to the board up there. I did
kind of hang on the rim, but I thought
he saw that I was trying not to land
on somebody. It happens, I guess."

Dotson proves doubters wrong
By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
The media decided there
were at least 10 players in the
Southeastern Conference better
than Marshae Dotson, leaving
her off the preseason All-SEC
teams. She has been discrediting
her naysayers ever since.
Dotson has been the Gators'
most reliable player so far this
season, and she will look to con-
tinue when UF (4-4) hosts Florida
Gulf Coast tonight at 7.
"Marshae's coming out to
play every game this year," se-
nior guard Depree Bowden said.
"She's playing like a beast. That's
the only way I can describe her."
Dotson averages a double-
double with marks of 15 points
and nearly 11 rebounds per
game. Through Nov. 29, she led
the team in both categories, rank-
ing eighth in the SEC in scoring
and second in rebounding.
Dotson fought through a frac-
tured nose to pour in 25 points
and 16 rebounds against Robert
Morris on Nov. 12. She put up
big numbers in the loss against
then-No. 20 Florida State on Nov.
23 as well, scoring 22 points and
adding 15 rebounds.
One issue has been Dotson's
height or lack thereof, as the 5-
foot-11 junior forward usually
stands two or three inches shorter
than opposing forwards.
"A lot of people look at
Marshae and see an undersized
post player, and that's a big mis-
take," UF coach Amanda Butler
said. "Her size has nothing to
do with what she's capable of
Butler told Dotson before the
season that she would be a big
part of the offense.
"Marshae's coming out to
play every game this year.
She's playing like a beast.
That's the only way I can
UF senior guard
"We just told her, 'The ball's
going to be in your hands,"'
Butler said. "'We're going to do
things to get the ball in your
hands, and we expect you 'to
Butler ignored the preseason
snub and said Dotson will have
a chance to change people's
"In preseason, anything
doesn't really make a hill of
beans anyway," Butler said. "If
that motivated Marshae, then
great. We know how good she
is, and the SEC will find out how
good she is when we get here.
She'll have a chance to earn one
of those individual awards at the
end of the season when it's a lot
POINT GUARD PROBLEMS: Butler
has been disappointed with the
recent play of her point guards,
Brittaney Thomas and Lonnika
"They have the misfortune
of being coached by someone
who was a point guard," Butler
said. "Our point guards set the
tone and 12 of our 31 turnovers
(against Louisville) came from
the point. That trickle-down ef-
fect is going to occur when your
point guards aren't sharp."
Butler questioned some of the
offensive decisions the pair made
against the Cardinals on Sunday.
She wondered why Thompson,
who was 2 for 2 from 3-point
range, decided to start penetrat-
ing and finished the game just 2
of 11 from the floor.
Also, she asked why Thomas,
who had success penetrating the
lane, started throwing up shots
from behind the arc.
Thomas had been the starter
until the past two games, but
turnovers and bad decisions have
caused her to see a lot more of the
Sfe had only nine minutes of
play against Louisville despite
being named the SEC Player of
the Week after Week 1.

Tebow's Heisman hopes grow stronger
By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
Tim Tebow can't even walk to class
without seeing the reminders.
When he strolls along Stadium Road,
rides his scooter or even tries to eat a
meal at Gator Corner, students strike
the Heisman pose when he walks by
- something Tebow still doesn't do.
It's just five days until a new Heisman
Trophy winner will be announced, and
UF's sophomore sensation is as much in
the mik as anyone.
"Tim should win it."
B" N.. ~Even coach Urban Meyer, who was
hesitant to campaign for his quarterback
--,during the season, finally gave in after
"Tim should win it," Meyer said.
"The numbers, just the touchdowns, I do
believe he deserves to win that Heisman.
I feel strongly, after watching the game
and looking at statistically what he's
done in the SEC, that he should win the

season can make a coach say anything.

Plenty more Gators excitement to come in 2008
Last week, alligatorSports columnist and
staff writer Jenna Marina offered insight
with her list of the top seven moments of the
Very well done. So well done, in fact, that
I'm going to borrow from her idea and come
up with a list of my own.
I'm going to look into my crystal ball here
and project 2008's five biggest dates in UF
1. Jan. 1: The Capital One Bowl: On pa-
per, UF should defeat Michigan. But, as Ohio
State taught us last year, the game's winner
will likely be determined by what happens
in practice for the remainder of December.
Everyone is going to make a big deal out of
the whole Big Ten-Southeastern Conference
matchup again, and, as
somebody who grew
up in the Midwest,
f '4 let me just go off on a
Sv, :" little rant here. I'm not
ashamed to admit that
Nick Zaccardi SEC football blows its
Nick-el Coverage Big Ten little brother
firstname.lastname@example.org out of the water. I
don't really see why
people even bring it
up anymore. College football is a religion in
the South. Up north, it's far less important.
Growing up, college football didn't even
make the short list of my favorite sports.
Down here, that sort of thinking is blasphe-
2. .March 22/23: NCAA Tournament sec-
ond round: Billy Donovan's young basket-
ball team will lose after a first round victory
in the NCAA Tournament to a second- or
third-seeded team that is more experienced
and better equipped to handle the pressures
of the tourney. It's a happy medium between
hard-earned national championships the last
two seasons and first-round upsets from
Donovan's earlier years.
3. Aug. 30: UF vs. Hawaii, a game that
will go down as the "System Bowl." Hawaii
coach June Jones said on Sunday that Tim
Tebow is a "system quarterback," which ba-
sically means Tebow's success is due to UF's

Georgia 81 '
By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
With the UF men's basketball
team suffering through an-
other sluggish start, guard Nick
Calathes took over Monday
night and left all his demons
After the Gators trailed 14-12
early to Jacksonville, Calathes
scored 8 points and dished two
assists during a 15-point run that
put UF (8-1) up 13 and ahead for
good in the 88-72 win.
Calathes just missed a dou-
Meni' points in ad-
Men's edition to nine
Basketball assists and five
"I was just
hitting my shots, and my team-
mates were finding me and good
things happened," Calathes said.
"I'm just glad we're winning.'
Calathes seems to have rt
his stride following disappoint-
ing performances in back-to-
back games against Florida State
and Stetson last week, when he
scored 14 points combined. He
has scored 45 points in the two
The game-changing run was
highlighted by two flashy passes
from Calathes, the first hitting
a streaking Walter Hodge on
a no-look bounce pass and the
other a one-handed lob to center
Marreese Speights for a dunk.
Discounting the 15-0 run,
the Dolphins played the Gators
stride for stride.
The Dolphins never trailed
by double digits from halftime
on, but they hung around and
were down just 13 with 4:32
UF coach Billy Donovan said
the game was a good teaching
tool for the Gators.

* THE REDSHIRT JUNIORS SUBMITTED
PAPERWORK TO THE NFL.
By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
Tight end Cornelius Ingram and defensive end
Derrick Harvey, both juniors, have filed paper-
work with the National Football League to gauge
their draft stock, UF coach Urban Meyer said.
Ingram said he filed the paperwork early last
Doing so does not require either player to en-
ter the draft, and the early process is usually just
about gaining information.
"I'll actually put them on the phone with some
general managers and head coaches," Meyer
said. "So if they make a decision, it's a well-edu-
At 6 foot 4, 230 pounds, Ingram said he would
like to be drafted in the first or second round and
will likely return to the Gators for his final year if
that isn't probable.
"I'm not really concerned," Ingram said.
"Wherever they want me to play, I'd be willing
to do whatever it takes. If I had to lose weight or
gain weight, I'd be willing to do that."
TRANSFER MEETINGS: Backup quarterback Bryan
Waggener met with Meyer and decided to leave
the Gators on Monday, and Meyer said he is
planning to meet with freshman running back Bo
Offensive coordinator Dan Mullen said last
week that Waggener was considering a transfer,
while Williams said he had already made up his
mind to leave.
"Bryan Waggener is going to try to get eligible
right away, and we're trying to help him," Meyer
said. "That makes a lot of sense to me. He's got
two years left. He's a great person. He wants to
go play football, and it doesn't look real promis-
ing here right now. I don't mind that one. It's the
other ones that I don't understand."
Redshirt freshman running back Chevon
Walker, sophomore wide receiver Jarred Fayson
and tight end Trent Pupello have already been
granted releases from the team.
"Bryan Waggener is going to try to get
eligible right away, and we're trying to
UF football coach
In addition to some of his players transferring,
Meyer has also dealt with outside requests.
"I get five phone calls a weekend of kids from
other schools trying to transfer, and my advice
is always the same: Stick it out and go become
a Louis Murphy or a Vernell Brown or a Reggie
Lewis," Meyer said. "There's enough great sto-
ries, and for God sakes get your education."
ETC: Cornerback Joe Haden practiced individu-
ally after missing the Florida State game with
a high ankle sprain. Meyer said he expects the
freshman starter to return in time for the Capital
One Bowl on Jan. 1. ... Offensive guard Jim Tartt
has had mononucleosis for at least the past three
days. Meyer said it should be another four to five
days before he returns.
