This is getting ridiculous.
UF made opposing players look
like they had just gotten out of
bed and barely combed their hair
- agam
Percy Hlarvin made scoring
touchdowns look easier than cook-
ing Ramen again.
The Gators read the opponent's
quarterback like a nursery rhyme
and added to their interception
total again.
Perhaps what's even more ri-
diculous than anything is, as South
Carolina coach Steve Spurrier put
it, the Gators are a four-game win-
ning streak away from their second
national championship in three
years. Of course, that's assuming
the Gators make it past Florida
State in two weeks and then a
matchup with No. 1 Alabama
intesou reastrnt Confeoence


m i theeBCS, would pro aly pla


the championship game.
The run this UF football team is
on is one that the 1996 Gators title-
winning team would give a stand-
ing ovation. That '96 team scored
an absurd 376 points in conference
play. This year's team scored 359.
And that's with the majority of
their second-string offense playing
in the second half of many of those
games.
In the stadium that Spurrier
made famous, the biggest loss he
had previously suffered as a
player or coach was a 12-point
defeat when he was manning the
sidelines in 1993 against FSU.
That's until he and his now-
dirt-covered visors came into
Gainesville showcasing an offense
with a colorblindness problem that
made it unable to distinguish blue
jerseys from white ones.
"We got royally beat," Spurrier
said.
Beat. Throttled. Embarrassed.

llREIGNING STEP CHAMPIONS
TOOK HOME TROPHIES.

By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Incarnations of spacewomen, prison-
ers, Oompa-Loompas and Sean "Diddy"
Combs pounded the stage of the Phillips
Center for Performing Arts on Saturday
night
Four UF fraternities and four sororities
from the National Panhellenic Counci
portrayed the characters as part of the an-
nual Battle of the Greeks Step Show.
About 1,400 students piled into the
center to watch the competition, spon-
sored by the nine-member greek council.
Although the Battle of the Greeks has
only existed for four years, its predeces-
sor, the Black Greek Expedition, has been
around since the late 1990s, said John
Foster, a member of the show's publicity

Some of the themes included swash-
buckling pirates, space expeditions, a
spoof of MTV's "Making the Band" and a
futuristic voyage.
Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity started
off the night on the right foot liter-
ally when they performed their routine
blindfolded and standing on one leg.
The uniqueness of the routine earned
extra points with the nine judges.
Some of the performers took advan-


tage of special effects, such as fog and
black lights, for their performances. Alpha
Kappa Alpha Sorority, whose show was
based on a journey to Mars, used strobe
Eights to simulate a feeling of low gravity.
Groups also made short video clips to
help narrate their storylines.
Acrobatics and stunts were also used
in routines. The pirates of Delta Sigma
Theta Sorority made a human compass
while spinning and lifting a girl, who
posed as the needle.
Performers wove elements such as
jump ropes and swords into some of the
performances. Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity
and Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority used
canes in their routines, with one dancer
banging her cane so hard against the stage
that it broke into three pieces.
Once the organizations finished
competing, UF's Apocalypse Dance
Troupe performed and R&B artist Bobby
Valentino put on a concert.
Audience members sang and danced
along while waiting for the judges' re-
sults. Once the scores were tallied, the
Philips Center became quiet as the audi-
ence awaited the news.
Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity and Delta
Sigma Theta Sorority last year's reign-
mgoe ampar's worth of bragn rihop
Foster said he was p ese with the
execution of this year's show.
"It was quite possibly the best one
yet," he said.

The ceremony drew more than

"Together as a community

She said there have been na-

While construction continues, the UAA
has signed three coaches and 24 players
for the team.
The coaches are head coach Amanda
O'Leary and assistant coaches Jennifer
Ulehla and Erica LaGrow.
LaGrow was recently invited to be part
of the U.S. Lacrosse World Cup Training
Team.
When the stadium is complete, the UF
lacrosse team will begin practice in June
2009 and compete in Division I of the
NCAA in spring 2010.
"To add a women's sport was a funda-

UF is constructing a lacrosse stadium
for the new women's lacrosse team that
should be finished by J~uly 2009.
The stadium, which cost almost $14
million, is on Hull Road across from the
Katie Seashole Pressly Softball Stadium.
The lacrosse stadium is solely funded
by UF's University Athletic Association,
or UAA, and will consist of about 1,400
seats and concession stands.
Bahar Armaghani, project manager for
the stadium, said construction is running
on time.
The stadium will also serve as a prac-


tice field for the UF~ soccer team.
A contract between the UAA and UF.
states that the land the soccer team uses
for a practice field is needed for an in-
tramural sports field, Associate Athletic
Director Chip Howard said.
He added that the soccer team would
continue to play in their stadium because
it holds more people.
Soccer games average about 4,000
people a game.
The stadium will be equipped with
locker rooms, concessions, additional
parking and a sidewalk.
When construction is done, Hull Road
will have a sidewalk on both sides of the
street.


Shands at UF for their contribu-
tions to diabetic research and
prevention.


Desmond Schatz, a UF pro-
fessor of medicine and diabetic
research, spoke after the mayor


and said 23 million Americans
have diabetes and 53 million are
predisposed to develop it.
Schatz said awareness is
critical because if more people
understand diabetes, support for
research and accessible health
care will grow.
"Not only do we need money,"
he said. "We need you."
Rep. Charles Chestnut de-
scribed diabetes as a silent killer.
As a diabetic, he said he has had
to change his entire lifestyle to
stay healthy.
At the end of the ceremony,
attendants formed a circle and
bjlew bubbles around Century
Tower, which was illuminated by
blue spotlights.
Kathryn Parker, education co-
ordinator for the Diabetes Center
of Excellence, said the bubbles
symbolized hope for the 236 mil-
lion people living with diabetes
worldwide.

The Department of Motor
Vehicles' mobile unit provided
identification cards, which are
often necessary to sign up for ser-
vices, said Barbara Satterthwaite,
DMV examiner specialist.
"You have to have an ID to get
your foot in the door for anything,"
Satterthwaite said.
James said that's all most peo-
ple want an opportunity. But it's
not easy to come by.
"A lot of us just can't get that
one break," he said. "People need
to take off their judgment and real-
ize we're all in this together."


"I didn't have a lot of hair to cut
off anyway," he said with a laugh.
Others at the plaza sat around
picnic tables sharing meals or
sprawled on the grass, picking at
banjos and playing harmonicas.
"The main thing about any
organization here is to help the
people, the citizens of Alachua
County," said Marie Small of
Choices, a health services provider
for the uninsured.
One volunteer, Tony Morales,
of Tampa, repaired bicycles for
anyone who brought one over.
Morales said it wasn't long ago
that he was homeless too.
"I've been on the other side

said.
Another man, Danny Gryggs,
said he rides his bike 23 miles from
Hawthorne to volunteer every
week with Arupa's Home Van, an
organization that provides food
for people downtown.
"You do not go hungry in this

About two dozen organizations

throughout the week in the dorms

"Gainesville has one of the big-
gest homeless populations," Tapia
said. "It's important to show that
we don't just go to school here.
We actually care and want to do
something about it."
Both Tapia and Bartra said that
students help alleviate the state
of hunger and homelessness not
only during the week of events,
but also by joining or volunteer-
ing with other service organiza-
tions throughout the year.

The events continue tonight at

in the Graham
On Recreation Room.
c~asrnpus At the banquet, stu-
dents will be divided
into three groups
consisting of a poor, middle and
elite class, Bartra said.
The division serves to help stu-
dents learn about the disparities
between classes in society, said
co-chair Ana Tapia.


"In society you don't get to
choose what class you're born
into," Tapia said.
Tapia said students will receive
different amounts of food and
treatment based on the class they
are divided into.
The event will also feature
three speakers who have experi-
enced homelessness, Tapia said.
The events end Friday at 6
p.m. in the Graham Gallery with
performances from student orga-
nizations and information about
hunger and the homeless.
A canned food drive will run


for Leadership and Service that
is assisted by the Black Student
Union, SISTUHS, the Service
Ambassadors and the Inter-
Residence Hall Association.
The week's events kick off with
the Hunger and Homelessness
Organization Fair today on the
Reitz Union Colonnade from 11
a.m. to 2 p.m.
"The purpose is to have stu-

year-round basis," said Shantelle

Symbolic event lacks

significant impact

ynow, we think it's safe to assume Gainesville touts
dency is especially obvious on UF's campus, where
protests are as common as man-crushes on Percy Harvrin.
You can rarely make it through Turlington without some
random activist group informing you of their humanitarian
cause of the week.
That's exactly why we're not surprised UF student orga-
nizations are not afraid to push the importance of sharing
the wealth.
In keeping with this UF tradition, today marks the be-
ginning of Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week.
In addition to a weeklong canned food drive, the week of
awareness will also be hosting the Oxfam Hunger Banquet.
The banquet is structured to emphasize class disparity in
the U.S., especially the hardships endured by the less for-
tunate.
Students at the banquet wil be divided into three groups
to represent society's poor, middle class and elite. Each
group will be fed and treated differently for the duration
of the meal.
We're pretty sure this might have made some sense on
paper, but when we try to visualize how this would actually
play out, we're a bit more skeptical.
How effective could one night of reduced dinner por-
tions and insincere, faked insults be? After all, everyone in
attendance still gets to eat, which we can safely assume isn't
the case for those actually living day to day on the streets.
We highly doubt that anyone not already concerned with
the plight of the homeless would revamp their entire out-
look because they were given a half-serving of beans rather
than a filet mignon.

Pursuit of

you've ever seen the
Gotta Give" featuring
aging stars Jack Nicholson
and Diane Keaton, then you
know firsthand the horrors
and possible pitfalls of over-
the-hill intimacy. In one of
the movie's opening scenes,
Nicholson's character has a
heart attack as he is putting
the moves on a disturbingly
younger woman.
You should stay away
from this film simply for
comfort's sake if you have
a weak stomach, but if you
want to avoid the night-
mare-inducing experience
of viewing a wrinkled sex-
capade in person, then you'll
want to stay far away from
Mexico City.
On -Dec. 1, the capital
city will be providing free
Viagra, Levitra and Cialis to
male residents 70 and older.
The reasoning behind


Hap-penis
this? According to Mexico
City Mayor Marcelo Ebrard,
sexuality is essential to hap_
piness and quality of life.
Call us immature and in_
sensitive, but we don't really
see the necessity of this.
Unless cinema is lying to
us, which we could never
believe, increasing the prob-
ability of elderly copulation
simultaneously puts these
reinvigorated older men at
risk for heart attacks.
.We would be lying if we
said we weren't frightened
by the thought of an elderly,
Viagra free-for-all, but we're
honestly concerned about
more than the possibility of
hideous visions being seared
into the minds of unsuspect-
ing, roaming grandchildren.
We can only hope the old
men of Mexico City will take
a second to consider their
tickers before they slip up
like Jack.


t's your typical Monday morning: You grudgingly fight
and slump into the first seat you can find in the back
of Carleton Auditorium. Your professor walks in and som-
berly approaches the lectern.
In the next ten minutes, you suddenly snap out of your
hangover-induced daze as she informs you that you have
one year to complete your degree because budget cuts
have forced UF to cut the program,
This is rapidly becoming reality for thousands of UF
students and faculty because of the budget cuts forced
upon UF by the state Legislature. Putting minute details
aside, UF is faced with budget cuts for the academic year,
and more are expected as the economy continues to de-
cline.
The quality of a UF degree and education suffers as
programs get cut on every level from undergraduate to
doctorate. Faculty members are fired on every level, and
each year UF will admit 1,000 fewer students.
The State University System, which is-comprised of
Florida's 11 public universities, must find a way to increase
revenues. The solution isn't pleasant, let alone politically
palatable.
The best plan of action would be to hike tuition at
Florida public universities while simultaneously decreas-
ing Bright Futures eligibility. This plan may not be popular
with students, but it is the only realistic solution to the
threat facing our TUF degr-ees.
Phasing out Bright Futures would be politically unfea-
sible in the current economic climate, but this outcome
iS inevitable, according to the Chair of the State Senate
Committee on Education.
Aside from being the only possible course of action,


it actually won't prevent many
students from attending a Florida
public uruversity.
According to state figures,
the average family income of
a student at UF is $100,000 a
KHyle Robisch year. When coupled with the
letters@alligator.0rg fact that Floridians pay less for
their education than residents of
most other states about $3,300,
compared with the national average of $6,100 a tuition
increase and tougher eligibility requirements for Bright
Futures are both morally and fiscally acceptable.
Students who need help paying for school can get it
from need-based scholarships and Bright Futures, which
would still pay up to $3,300 a year. Although this isn't a
full ride, which Bright Futures currently provides for some
students, it would cover more than half of tuition costs and
force high school students to work harder to boost their
grades.
Increasing tuition by just $2,000 a year would generate
'more than $70 million for UF, which easily covers the $47
million in budget cuts we are saddled with. This increase
would keep education costs well below the national aver-
age, maintaining the State of Florida's famous affordabil-
ity.
In the current economic meltdown, it is selfish and im-
practical, to allow the quality of a UF degree to deteriorate
as funding melts away.
UF must raise tuition and the state must make Bright
Futures more competitive. Your future could depend on it.

the Florida Law Review.
The group will talk about cur-
rent legal issues. Rush, Wolf and
Dougherty will ask questions submit-
ted by UF Iaw students.
The event is the first of the
Marshall Criser Distinguished Lecture
Series, which was created thanks
to a $600,000 donation in January
2007 from UF law school alumnus
Lewis Schott, said Chris Brazda, UF
Foundation spokesman.
The donation was matched by
$420,000 in state funds through
Florida's University Major Gifts
Program.
Robert Jerry, dean of UF's law
school, said Stevens and Gonzalez
declined to be paid for their appear-
ances.
They were compensated for travel
costs, Jerry said.
He said he was pleased students
would have a second opportunity this
semester to see a U.S. Supreme Court
justice at UE
But UF doesn't intend to stop
bringing the big names any tune soon,
he added.
"There are not many law schools,
if any, that have had this frequency of
Supreme Court visitors," Jerry said.

A former deputy plans to ap-
peal a decision by the Alachua
County Sheriff's Office to fire him
for reportedly lying about a minor
traffic accident.
An Internal Affairs investiga-
tion revealed that Deputy Carl
Klock, 36, could not provide any


details about a vehicle that he said
rear-ended his patrol car July 8 on
West University Avenue.
Three cars in front of Klock
were also involved in the accident,
said sheriff's office spokesman
Steve Maynard.
Investigators determined that


Klock had been the cause of the
accident and rec-
ommended that he
o ews be fired for lying,
Maynard said.
Sheriff Sadie
Darnell agreed with the recom-
mendation and fixed Klock


Wednesday, Maynard said.
The current punishment for
a preventable crash in which the
deputy is at fault is a reprimand
and loss of patrol car take-home
privilege for one night, Maynard
sad.
There is no monetary fine for


the first at-fault crash, he said.
"A small lie about the accident
ruined his career and his job,"
Maynard said. "His incentive to
not be truthful about the accident
had no sense in it."

The Web site launched in opposition to legislation passed
in Florida, Arizona, Arkansas and California in the Nov.
4 election, including Proposition 8, which overturned a
California ruling allowing same-sex marriages.
Over the next 10 months, Join The Impact founders hope
to launch at least 10 more nationwide demonstrations, ac-
cording to the site.
Gainesville residents Daniel and M.J. Roberts coordinated
the local event using the Web site and Facebook.
M.J. Roberts, 39, said she relied mainly on word of mouth
to advertise the protest. It worked.
At 1:30 p.m., when the protest was scheduled to begin,
about 30 people stood alorig the curb of University Avenue.
About 45 minutes later, more than 100 people were lining
both sides of the road.
Despite wet weather, protesters stayed until 3 p.m., way-
ing posters that read, "Shame On 2," "Can I Vote On Your
Marriage Now?" and "2 is Poo."
Protester Stacie Greco, 31, wore a wedding veil while ral-
lying with her partner, Christine Smith, 35.
Not all attendees were homosexual.
'5 think it's a civil rights issue," said Alicia Hamilton, 52. "I
don't have to be gay to support it."
Hamilton's sign read, "Straight but I don't hate."
"I'm ashamed to admit it now, but many many many
years ago I voted against some of these rights when I was liv-
ing in Miami," Hamilton said. "Now it's 20-something years
later and my mind has been opened."
For others, the protest was personal.
The Rev. Virginia MlcDaniel, a minister for 15 years, said
her lesbian daughter married in California before the state
voted to pass Proposition 8.
Now, she worries that her daughter's marriage status will
be overturned.
"I think discrimination against people who happen to love
people of the same sex is terrible," McDaniel said.
Student protesters from UF also braved the weather to
show support. UF botany major Zoe Falcone protested with
her girlfriend and a shivering Chihuahua named Widget.
Falcone, who is transgender, said she thinks it's unfair that
people are able to decide on her rights.
"Even though we did elect a black president, gays got hit
pretty bad this year," Falcone said.

FAKE CEREMONY WAS HELD AT
THE BAUGHMAN CENTER ON FRIDAY.

SBy LAUREN BAKER

Ibaker@alligator.org

After a marriage proposal via Facebook five
days beforehand, two UF sophomores were
married (just for fun) Friday in a ceremony on
campus.
The hasty wedding came as no surprise
to some of the near 25 guests who attended,
mainly because itwas fraud.
The couple, members of aUF improve group,
Theatre Strike Force, planned the ceremony on
a whim following a playful suggestion by the
bride, Kamay Lafalaise.
After asking Rudy Mendoza to marry
her by leaving a post on his Facebook wall,
Mendoza responded by painting "Marry me,
Kamay!" on the 34th Street wall.
alR y took it to Mars and went for it,"
Mendoza said they planned the event for
Friday afternoon in the Baughman Center,
which offers free public access throughout
the day.
He said the wedding cost about $20, which
went towant the painted proposal.
The minister and pianist performed their
services for free, Mendoza said.

A weeklong search for aGainesville
man ended in tragedy in the parking
lot of the Jacksonville International
Airport Friday morning.
Detectives found David Reiser, 6,
in his van minutes before he reportedly
shot himself in the head.
The Alachua County Sheriff's
Office, or ASO, issued a silver alert for
Reiser on Nov. 8 after friends from his
band reported him missing, said ASO
spokesman Steve Maynard.
The silver alert program, which was
signed by Gov. Charlie Crist in October,
broadcasts information to find missing
elderly people who may be in danger.

the tunnel hyped, and they stay
hyped. The Gators have outscored
their last six opponents all SEC
teams 101-0 in the first quarter.
"In the locker room before the
game, we get so much balled-up
energy," sophomore cornerback
Joe Haden said. "It doesn't matter
who we play. We've got a plan."
Percy Harvin must've been a
big part of that plan. The junior
do-it-all speedster finished with
173 total yards, 167 of which were
rushing, and two touchdowns.
Junior middle linebacker
Brandon Spikes said "you can't"
cover Harvin, and sophomore
strong safety Ahmad Black said it


is "impossible" to cover him.
In what was a near video
game-like play, Harvin took the
ball twice on the same counter run
and had two touchdowns of 26
g and 80 yards. He
i ,-~stouched the ball
just nine times.
"If he was
a tailback on
somebody else's
team, he'd be
Spurriera 200-yards-
a-game guy,"
Spurrier said.
The scary part for opponents is
that it's not just Harvin.
The Gators finished with 367


yards on the ground and had six
different receivers catch passes.
The last time they rushed for 300
yards against an SEC Team was
Oct. 12, 1996, against LSU.
"Our numbers have been outra-
geous," Harvin said.
That's true on offense and
defense. The Gators picked off
Gamecocks quarterbacks three
times and held them to just 173
yards of offense. It was South
Carolina's worst loss since it fell to
UF 63-7 in 1995 with, you guessed
it, Spurrier as the coach.
Since their 31-30 loss against
Mississippi on Sept. 27, the Gators
haven't won by fewer than 28.


"I probably didn't envision
winning by this much," said
quarterback Tim Tebow, who had
three total touchdowns. "But the
effort and enthusiasm, absolutely
(I expected)."
The Gators are potentially four
games away from their second-
national championship in three
years.
"That was the best defense
I have ever played against,"
South Carolina quarterback Chris
Smelley said.
That's not something Gators
fans have heard in a long time. It's
not something Alabama wants to
hear, either.

on the other hand, this was just
another blowout in what's become
a common theme as Atlanta and
a matchup with Alabama creeps
closer.
While the Crimson Tide remains
undefeated at 11-0, they haven't
been blowing out opponents the
way the Gators have. Mississippi
State kept it close with Alabama
for most of the game until the
Crimson Tide came out with a 32-
7 win. The week before, Alabama
only took down LSU by 6, 27-21.

Hicks leads defense to two interceptions in blowout

UF linebacker Brandon Hicks had one start this season com- . it
ing into Saturday's game against South Carolina. --
He made his second one count. ~d
Beginning the game at weakside linebacker in place of A~.J
Jones (sprained PCL in his kn~ee), Hicks was key on UF's two
first-quarter interceptions and a catalyst for the No. 3 Gators'
56-6 win over No. 24 South Carolina. P-1I B11I.~ -~~l lli;~p~f '"'Bfi&F~l~ B ~ "'
For starters, Hicks applied pressure to South Carolina ii
quarterback Chris Smelley and forced him to float a pass that p); B .

"He was trying to throw it off his back foot, trying to run 1 p~~L.
away from the rush," Hicks said. "I was just hoping in my .$I
head, I was like 'I know somebody's there."'"1
Two South Carolina plays later, Hicks leaped up at the line, I

And that's not all. He sacked Smelley for a loss of 7 yards /~

Hicks said it was the best day in his career.
UF coach Urban Meyer recognizes the depth of his defense,
and said competition in practice for playing time will increase

With time winding down, the Gators made
one final attempt to take a lead into the half.
Lindsay Thompson received the ball from
Angela Napolitano with under 10 seconds
left. She calmly turned and fired the ball past
Central Florida goalie Aline Reis with only four
seconds to go, scoring the latest goal in a half in

When the Gators took the field in the sec-
ond period, the momentum was behind them.
They continued to put pressure on the Golden
Knights en route to a 2-0 win to advance to the
Round of 16 in the NCAA Tournament and re-
deem their 1-0 loss to UCF earlier this season.
Despite dominating most of the match
against ICF on Aug. 29 the Gators outshot


the Knights 17 to 6 and 8 to 2 in shots on goal
- No. 2 seed UF couldn't get a goal on Reis.
It was much of the same on Sunday UF

Gators overcome lack of experience, inside play


'"e~


Collins and forward Sam Singh
on the glass.
UF tried to relieve Tyus with
freshmen Allan Chaney and
Kenny Kadji, but neither seemed
to find a rhythm.
"I got blown by a few times,"
Chaney said. "Coach got on me
about that."

"We would have liked
to do more inside and
around the basket."
Blily Donovan
UF men's basketball coach


Donovan said a lack of condi-
tioning has limited the minutes
the tandem has been able to
play. The pair only grabbed five
rebounds.
"Both of those guys fatigue a
little faster than I would like,"
Donovan said.
Without a strong inside game,
the Gators were forced to, once
again, live or die by their outside
shooting.
For now, that strategy worked.
UF took 32 3-point attempts in
the game and knocked down 14
of them.
"We won the game today
because of the 3-point line,"
Donovan said.
The Gators' last seven field
goals came from behind the are.
It was the most threes allowect
by Bradley since they gave up as


UF Iooks to rebound after loss


many to Wichita State on March
3, 2003.
Ironically, the Braves have
been one of the nation's best 3-
point shooting teams over the
last two years, making 695 in
that span. On~~ly Virginia Military
Institute and Houston have made
more.
Walter Hodge (5) and Dan
Werner (4) tied their career highs
from 3-point land.
After missing 94 of his 136
shots from 3-point range last
year, Werner seems to have found
his stride.
"I was building (brick) houses
last year," he joked.
Bradley started the second
half on a 10-1 run that cut UF's
lead to 43-35. It looked as though
the Braves might have shot
their way back into the game
until point guard Erving Walker
started the barrage of threes that
would eventually put an. end to
the Bradley rally with a, little
more than 10 minutes left in the
game.
Chandler Parsons has gotten
off to a slow start offensively
this season. The sophomore has
scored 12 points through the
Gators' first two games.
"His shot obviously isn't
falling, but his rebounding is a
lot more important than that,"
Calathes said.
Parsons snatched a career-high
10 rebounds against the Braves.

It was a baptism by fire, and
the Gators nearly got burned.
Often outmuscled and almost
outmatched, No. 19 UF (2-0)
scrapped its way to- an 81-58 win
against Bradley (1-1) on Sunday
at the O'Connell Center during
the second round of the O'Reilly
Auto Parts CBE Classic.
The veteran team out of the
Missouri Valley Conference came
to Gainesville unafraid.
The Braves, who started four
upperclassmen, pushed around
the less-experienced Gators for
most of the afternoon in a game
that played out much closer than
the final score indicates.
"We're going to see (older
teams) during the season," UF
guard Nick Calathes said. "That's
the SEC Tournament and, if we
make the NCAA Tournament,
that's the NCAA Tournament,
too. So, we better get used to it."
Seven-foot Bradley center
David Collins had his way with
Alex Tyus in the first half until
foul trouble forced Collins to the
bench.
"We would have liked to
do more inside and around the
basket," UF coach Billy Donovan

rebounds, struggled to fight off

UF forward Dan Werner looks for a way around a defender during the
first half of the Gators' 80-58 win against Toledo on Friday night.


The Gators will have to try and rebound from
their first loss tonight at 7 mn the O'Connell Center
when they host Jacksonville, and if last year is any
indication, it won't be easy. The Dolphins defeated
UF last season in Jacksonville, 75-64.
"Another excellent team. Our state, I think, is very
talented this year," Butler said.
"We went to Jacksonville and lost
last year.
"We've got to bounce back
and get ourselves ready to de-
fend our home court."
There were a few bright spots
for UF on Friday
Jennifer Mossor scored a ca-
ourtler reer-high 22 points in the loss.
"It was great to see her feeling it, especially hit-
ting a few big threes for us and making plays down
the stretch in the second half that gave us a chance to
win," Butler said.
Marshae Dotson ~had 22 points, and Sharielle
Smith fell just short of adouble-double with16 points
and nine rebounds.
It was somewhat of a homecoming for junior
guard Steffi Sozensen, who began her career at
Florida Golf Coast. She added 9 points and fouled
out in her first regular season game as a Gator.
Despite some good offensive performances, Butler
knows her team will have to tighten up defensively
"In crucial moments we had some breakdowns,"
Butler said. "And when you're playing against a
good team on their home court, you lose."

The UF women's basketball team's season opener
on Friday night didn't go as well as the team had
hoped, thanks to a feisty underdog.
The Gators' road trip to Florida Gulf Coast proved
to be no snoozer, and the Eagles escaped with an 88-
86 victory, avenging their two defeats to UF last year.
'Tt's very obvious how prepared they were, how
emotionally up they were for this game," UF coach
Amanda Butler said. "We knew we were going to be
tested, a lot of adverse conditions."
UF stormed back after being down 13 with about
11 minutes left in the second half to take a 76-74 lead
with about six minutes remaining.
The two teams went back and forth from there
with six lead changes.
Florida Gulf Coast regained the lead 85-84 with
about 35 seconds to go and held on for the win.
The Gators missed two key layups in the final
minute and a lialf that would have put them on top.
"We got the looks that we wanted there those last
few possessions. We just didn't put them in the hole,"
Butler said. "You can't choke it down when you've
got that opportunity to put the ball into the hole."
Butler was disappointed with her team's defense
throughout the game. The Gators allowed the Eagles
to shoot 50 percent from the field and 57 percent from
behind the are, a recipe for disaster.
"We obviously still have a lot of work to do,"
Butler said.

A UF athletic department
investigation into alleged stu-

that UF guard Nick Calathes
reportedly ran up a $600 online
poker debt.
The NCAA does not prohib-
it athletes from playing online
poker, and Calathes has been
cleared of any wrongdoing.

into it," UF Athletics Director

It was an especially impressive
performance for the UF defense be-
cause it ouishined the South Carolina
defense that Meyer spent the entire
FOOtball week praising. Meyer's defense
wound up scoring as many points (6)
as the Gamecocks' offense.
"We heard about that all week," Hicks said. "We
felt like we had to show ... America we're the best

We all knew that Tim Tebow,

of the nation's best units, buit the
