TALLAHASSEE -- The day~ News that Florida's revenues

plan that would allow 15 percent economy could mean more budget

Steve Orlando, UF

dictions about what
the results of the conference mean
for UF, but he said it would likely


get tougher for UF to maintain the
quality of its education.

million deficit Florida is already

At the Revenue Estimating

almost $1.4 billion less in the 2008-
2009 fiscal year than they forecasted
during their last meeting in August.

"At every halftime during every game,

They took the hats in stride.
About 200 people attended the dedica-

facility, located on the northeast corner of


Newell Drive and Inner Road.
The building, with state-of-the-art acous-

Police charge


teen in stabbing
A Gainesville teen has been charged with attempted
murder in connection with a stabbing in southeast
Gainesville on Friday.
.Gainesville Police reported ~that Terrill Gardner, 16, and
Michael Jones, 22, were arguing in the Sugar Hil apart-
ment complex when Jones was stabbed in the chest with a
10-inch blade, GPD spokesman Lt. Keith Kameg said.
When GPD officers responded to the scene, they found
Jones bleeding profusely from the chest, Kameg said.
Jones was taken to Shands at UF.
Gardner had shut himself in apartment 11, where he had
been living, he said.
Kameg said GPD surrounded the
r;~building and found Gardner sitting on
the couch of the apartment with the knife
on the floor near his feet.
The kn~ife ended in a curve and had a
point sticking out halfway down on the
top of the blade, resembling a samurai
Kameg
sword, GPD spokeswoman Summer
Hallett said.
Although Jones was only stabbed once, officials initially
thought he was stabbed twice because the knife's point had
created a second wound.
Hallett said Jones is still at Shands.
The charge of attempted murder could change pending
Jones' recovery, she said.

More UF students are turn-
ing toward a nonprofit orga-
nization dedicated to ending
educational inequality as they
prepare for graduation in light
of Florida's economic woes and
a presidential campaign clig
for change.
In 2008, .about 200 UF stu.
dents applied for jobs with
Teach~ for America. Of those
students, 51 were accepted and
37 decided to teach, said Dorie
Withey, Teach for America re-
cruitment director for UE. '
Applications for 2009 are due
Jan. 7, and already UF has seen
about a60 percent lcesincreas nte
number of applicants, she said.
Teach for America recruits
college graduates to teach for
a minimum of two years at a
public school in a high-poverty
area.
It has more than 6,200 corps
members teaching in more than
1,000 schools in 29 different re-
gions in the U.S.
'Withey said~ more students
are signing up because "people
are gravitating towards ways
we can have change in our
country." She said she thinks
Pfesideixt-elect Barack Obama's
recent campaign for change has
contributed to the increase in
applicants.


Julianne Scherker, a Teach
for America campus campaign
coordinator, said many students
approaching her about the pro-
gram have mentioned hearing
about Teach for Anterica on
the presidential debates. Others
mention hearing about the pro-
gram through media coverage
received by Michelle Rhee, a
Teach for America participant-
turned-chancellor-of schools in
Washington, D.C.
Students might also be turnn
ing to the program because of
the state's economy, which is
making it increas-
dLWent ingly difficult fo
to find jobs.
Teach for America could
prove useful while searching for
jobs afterward, as BusinessWeek;
ranked the program as one
of the best places to launch a
career.
"So many people are scared
of leaving college, and this is
one -of those secure options,"
Scherker said.
Teach for America also has
partnerships with graduate
schools and businesses, which
can lead to opportunities and
scholarships after teachers have
completed at least two years.
"You are not just taking two
years off," Withey said. "You
grow professionally and per-
sonally in your classroom."

All Florida gas stations will be required to

but the fuel may have its drawbacks.
Phillip Russell, a mechanic at Stark &

ethanol might notbe good for cars designed to

Hugo Chiriboga, owner of Hugo's Auto

UF's College of Veterinary
Medicine broke. ground on its
Veterinary Education and Clinical
Research Center on Friday mon-
ing in front of a crowd of about 1(00
supporters.
State Sen. Steve Oelrich and


Joseph DiPietro, the college's
former dean, were among the
10 hard-hat-sporting dignitaries
asked to break ground on the site,
which will include small hospital
for cats, dogs and exotic pets.
The state-of-the-art, $58 million
facility will be among the premier
animal hospitals in the country
when it is completed in early


2010, said Glen
Hoffsis, dean
of the College
of Veterinary
Medicine.
The center
will house the
faculty's 31 spe-
cialists and pro-


among other services for animals, .
he said.
Hoffsis said plans for the center
have been 20 years in the making.
The~ college raised $4 million in
private funds, he said, which was
matched by UF. The remaining
funds came from the state, he said.
The dignitaries' golden
shovels struck just north of the


college's small animal hospital
on Southwest 16th Avenue and
Shealy Drive, in what is now the
hospital parking lot.
Caty Love, president of the col-
lege's 2011 class, was the only stu-
dent to wield a shovel at Friday's
ceremony. Love said her class will
be the first to graduate after using
the facility.

Alachua County's plan for
its ~first senior center just got
bigger with a grant from the
state Friday.
The $2 million grant will
help build a place for senior
citizens to congregate and con-
nect, said Mark Sexton, Alachua
County spokesman,
The center should be com-
pleted in 2010
The country had planned to
pay for the center with revenue
from "Wild Spaces Public
Places," a half-cent sales tax
passed in the Nov. 4 election,


Commissioner Jack Donovan, a
supporter of the center, said its
proposed location at Northside
Park, in Northwest Gainesville,
would be easily accessible to
residents of both Gainesville
and Alachua.
Donovan said after residents
expressed growing interest, lo-
cal government decided to take
action. .
"The seniors of today are an
incredibly active resource for
the community," he said.
Senior centers in Franklin
County and Miami-Dade
County also received $1.5
milliori and $2` million dollars
respectively, a news release
stated.


predict Florida willbe in a recession until about June
and stay level until about April 2010, she said. Only
then will Florida begin to recover.
In the meantime, legislators will have to find a
way to bridge the budget gaps because Florida's
constitution prohibits deficit
spending. Baker said lawmakers
~~-1could look tomake up losses by
making budget cuts, transfer-
ring money from trust funds
or dipping into the Budget
'Stabilization Fund like they did
.in September.
Graham In a Thursda interview, for-
Grahammer U.S. Sen. Bb Graham said
if Crist's tuition plan is passed by the Legislature, it
could give lawmakers an excuse to cut more funds
to universities on the grounds that they will be able
to raise tuition to cover the difference.


in 2008-2009, said Amy Baker, chairwoman of the
conference.
Next year's gap could be as high as $5.8 billion,
current projections show.
Baker said the freezing of the credit market, the
shift from a national recession to a global recession
and losses in investments and savings accounts are
the three main factors to blame for the projected loss
of revenues.
The state saw its biggest losses in sales taxes, an
area that usually supplies about three-fourths of its
revenues. Economists predicted almost $700 million
less in sales tax revenues for 2008-2009 than thought
in August.
And it won't get better any time soon. Economists

Steinbrenner said he grew up as a Gator.
In 1981, George Steinbsrenner was elected
into the UF Athletic Hall of Fame and has

then.


Stills moved around Gainesville with his

Campusan interview.
As guitarist and songwriter
for the bands Buffalo Springfield and Crosby,

days when he played at fraternity parties at
UF with his band, The Continentals.
"It's all different," Stills said in an inter-

Long Overdue

Seniors in Gainesville

deserve fun, too

Itlooks like the dream of every senior citizen in Alachua
given a $2 million grant from the state to help fund the
county's first senior center.
Combine this grant with the half-cent sales tax passed on
Nov. 4, and the probability of the area's seniors having an awe-
some recreational center shoots through the roof.
OK, maybe this isn't the dream of every senior citizen in the
county, but we're willing to bet most of them wouldn't mind
having a place set aside specifically for them and their peers.
Gainesville is dominated by a younger crowd. UF skews the
city's population heavily toward the I-don't-even-kn~ow-who-
Matlock-is crowd.
Before you accuse the state of wasting money on a project
intended to be funded by the recently passed sales tax increase,
put yourself in a pair of their Velcro shoes.
Everyone, regardless of age, size, color, religion or whatever,
naturally feels more comfortable when they're surrounded by
people similar to them:
Do you think it's possible that, in a university-dominated
town, maybe seniors would like to have an escape from the
pack of obnoxious, hyperactive college students?
We can only imagine how strange it would be to move to a
town where the average age is 65 everything would move
a little slower, every conversation would be louder and more
reopetfiv ade evey Mustang and Civic would be replaced by
If we lived in this kind of bizarro world, we would want an
escape, too. Most other major cities in Florida provide some
kind of senior citizen recreational center, so we think it's about
time that Gainesville got one as well. Hopefully, the additional
$2 million will ensure this senior center is better than the rest.

Looks like it's not going to be a very merry Christmas after all...



Think of less fortunate on Thanksgiving


wo days from now, most of us will head back to
country for Thanksgiving Break.
We will gather at our dining room tables to enjoy suc-
culent turkey, piping-hot stuffing, sweet cranberry sauce
and a spread of desserts that would make any baker jeal-
ous.
Just beyond our sheltered lives both in our own
backyards and across the world people will spend
Nov. 27 in a much different reality.
They will not have the giant feast. They will not have ~
the five-bedroom suburban home. They may not even
have their families with them.
Three billion people on the planet live each day on
less than $2.50. The more than 10 million refugees and
internally displaced people worldwide won't be able to
enjoy a meal, let alone share Thanksgiving with those
they love the most.
As we sit down to eat with our families this week, we
cannot overlook the plight of starving people around
the world.
Thanksgiving Day is not only a time to be thankful
for the obvious things we have, such as our 1994 Honda
Accords or our shiny n'ew laptop computers, but for the
most basic necessities that most of the world doesn't
have access to.
Take clean water, for example. The World Bank esti-
mates (and it is a conservative estimate) that more than
a billion people have inadequate access to water, while
nearly 2.6 billion lack basic sanitation.
Across Florida, the U.S. and the developed world,
safe water is taken for granted every time we, pop open
an ice cold Aquafina or turn on our tap to down a glass
of water.


The most obvious example of
cultural wealth disparity is the
availability of food.
We wolf down buffalo wraps
from The Swamp Restaurant,
SLeonardo's deep dish pizza and
Kyle Robisch Taco Bell bean burritos without a
letters@alligator.org second thought.
As we gorge ourselves with
pounds of Thanksgiving deli-
ciousness, the only thought we have while stuffing our
faces is "What's for dessert?"
For more than 2 billion people around the globe,
starvation is life -- not the exception to the rule. These
less fortunate people are not blessed with the wonder
of the McDonald's Dollar Menu, let alone the taste of a
McChicken.
This isn't to say you shouldn't be able to kick back
and enjoy a delicious Thanksgiving feast, nor should
you feel guilty for indulging on this day of excess. By
all means, I hope you are able to do just that.
I cannot put enough emphasis on the importance
of giving thanks for the` basic necessities we take for
Granted 364 days of the year.
We shouldn't just be thankful for the excess, we
should be thankful for the basics: food, water, shelter,
the ability to share this holiday with those we love and
our way of life.
While you're at home enjoying your Thanksgiving
feast, don't forget to think about how lucky you've got

UF students


should support


tuition increases

or years, UF students have had the privilege of
lowest tuitions in the nation.
In fact, of the 75 flagship universities around the
country, UF consistently ranks 75th in tuition costs.
While it's undeniable that UF offers an education
that is as valuable as it is affordable, tuition increases

SpeaingOut at bargain-basement levels.
Budget cuts mn the last few years
have damaged many of UF's programs.
Projections from Tallahassee also offer a bleak

UF dmii:::tos:hve:eenforced to make dif-
ficult choices.
-They have cut enrollment, eliminated academic
programs and allowed faculty to flee for greener
pastures at other academic institutions.
It may be a tough pill to swallow, but if we want
to be viewed as the undeniable foundation of higher
education in the state of Florida, then students and
families must embrace tuition increases that aren't
covered by Bright Futures.
On Thursday, Gov. Charlie Crist announced a
plan that would allow Florida's public universities
to independently choose to raise their tuition to meet
the national avera e.
To keep the doors of opportunity open for all
Floridians, the plan calls fpr 30 percent of new rev-
enues to be used for additional need-based aid.
I am supporting Crist's plan, and I implore my
fellow Gators to join me.
The governor's proposal was developed in co-
operation with business leaders and experts from
around the state who recognize that Florida's eco-
nomic future greatly depends upon the ability of our
education system to produce competitive graduates
mn the 21st century.
To do so, UF needs the revenue to recruit and re-
tain talented faculty, invest in new technology and
fund groundbreaking research.
While students not on Florida Prepaid will be
asked to shoulder some of this burden, UF will
always work to provide opportunities for students
from every walk of life.
We must recognize this as an investment in both
our own future and the future of our beloved uni-
versity.

also a voting member of the LIF Board of Trustees.

N~w findings show that wom en srace
face discrimination in health

Women are being charged more for
health policies than men, even when
both are the same age and receive iden-
~tical coverage. Major insurers, such as
Humana, Aetna, United~Health and
Anthem are part of this trend.
According to a recent article in The
New York Times, a woman who is 40
years old and resides in Tallahassee will
pay $213 a month under a Humana in-
surance policy. A 40-year-old man also
living in Tallahassee would pay $159 for
the same coverage. Welcome to sexism in
the 21st century.
These findings are appalling. Women
should not be charged more for health
insurance on the basis of their sex. This
is not acceptable, just as it was not accept-
able to deny property ownership, suf-
frage or the ability to open bank accounts
to women on the basis of sex.
The reasoning given by insurers does
not justify their actions. Of those willing
to comment, insurers said women are


Andrea charged more
Williamson because they use
More health ser-
Speaking Out vie.
Yes, women
use-more health services when they get
pregnant. But last time I checked, only
women can give birth, so of course they
will use more health services than men.
That is not a valid reason to use sex~in
setting rates.
Individual policies do not always
include maternity coverage; that means,
under those plans, a woman must pay to
have a baby.
If she becomes pregnant, she will
have to pay an extra costly premium to
be covered, in addition to already being
charged more for her standard coverage
because she is female.
Even if maternity care is included in
standard coverage, the cost of reproduc-
ing should not only burden women. It
takes both a woman and a man to create
a child.
Having children benefits our fami-
lies, our society and our species. To not


reproduce would lead to the extinction of
humankind. Therefore, the cost of birth
should be something we all share.
Even if insurers had said "women use
more health services outside of maternity
costs," it is still not fair to charge women
more for health care than men.
SOutside of getting a sex change,
there's nothing yrou can do about being
female.
I wonder how women's expenses look
next to men's Viagra prescriptions, vasec-
tomies and prostate cancer testing.
If we consider sex-specific expenses,
shouldn't we also consider other sex-spe-
cific tendencies?
For example, who tends to smoke,
drink and do drugs more? Who has more
health problems because of these habits?
Who receives more treatment because of
these health problems?
It is not acceptable to charge women
more for health care than men. It is bla-
tant sexism, and something needs to be
done about it.

swept its weekend matches.

The game was over in the first quarter,
so only a quick summary of the facts is
necessary.
Imbuis Murphy's 16-yard touchdown
reception just four minutes in set the tone
for No. 2 UF, and the Gators (10-1, 7-1
Southeastern Conference) did not relent
against The Citadel (4-8) in their 70-19
victory Saturday afternoon.
The result of this game was never in
doubt 17 minutes into the game, the
Gators were on pace for 124 points.
Starting quarterback Tim Tebow was
out of the game with five minutes to go in
the second quarter, as was wide receiver
Percy Harvin.
Tebow added three passing touch-
downs to his stats, and Harvin had 125
yards in the first quarter.
Instead of the score, Senior Day was
Saturday's story.
It had been seven years since Javier
Estopinan scored a touchdown:
Considering he plays on the other side
of the ball, The Gators' redshirt senior
defensive tackle doesn't get too many op-
portunities, but Saturday was different.

yard run. He plowed through one Citadel
defender before crossing the goal line.
"I 'ust wanted to make sure I had the
ball," Estopinan said.
He was surprised earlier in the week
when Meyer told him they might try the
play, telling Meyer he was "crazy and
he's lying," and Estopinan was shocked
when the team called his number in the
huddle.
"He's stingy with his touchdowns,"
Estopinan said of Meyer. "I mean, there's
so many playmakers on offense, you
would never think you're
going to get a touch-
down."
SEstopinan said he
FOOtball considered celebrating
the touchdown, but "was
so dazed and confused, I
didn't know what to do."
Senior running back Kestahn Moore
said Estopinan's size may have helped
him out.
"You put him in there, and then no-
body wants to tackle him," Moome said.
"It was just an easy 6 for Javi."
Players had a hard time tack-
ling Moore during the day as well.
He has been largely replaced this season
by faster, younger running backs, but he

j FSCEGators' year end s to Aggies


By BOBBY CALL..VI
Alligator Writer
bcallovi@alligator.org

Texas A&M coach G. Guerrieri might be
mising a hand had Sunday's match lasted
any longer.
As UF created chance after chance in the
final 15 minutes, Guerrieri's nervous habit got
worse and worse.
Hi team was able to hold off the Gators'
relentless attack late in the match to advance
to the quarterfinals of the NCAA Tournament
with a 2-1 win, ending UF's season.
"I was holding my breath for a lot of (the
last 15 minutes) and chewing my fingernails all
the way to my kn~uckles," Guerrieri said.
This was the third straight year the Gators
were knocked out in the Round of 16.
After going up early on Liz Ruberry's first
goal of the season, they allowed two goals
within a minute of each other with 5 minutes
left in the first half.
The second goal happened so quickly,


many fans and players missed it. UF coach
Becky Burleigh and Megan Kerns said they
.would have to look at tape to see how the goal
happened. Aggies forward Jennifer Kmezich
wasn't even sure how the play developed, and
she was the one who scored.
"Everything happened so
quickly, I just turned around
and I don't kn~ow, the ball
was right there, so I just shot
it," Kmezich said.
Burleigh blamed the goal
on the decision to enter a
large group of substitutes
Ruberry as the end of the first half
approached.
In between Ruberry's goal and the Aggies'
first score netted off a corner kick by Laura
Robmnson Burleigh brought in six players off
the bench, five bemng a defensive substitution.
"To be frank, we made some bad coaching
decisions that led to the two goals. We subbed
too much late in the half, and that put us in a

Tt's strange how quickly it can all
Slip away.
One minute you've got the lead
and the next you're wondering what
just happened.
Defeat snatched from victory. The
UF soccer team found itself in this
situation on a cool Sunday afternoon.
The Gators entered their contest
against Texas A&M with thoughts of
the Elite Eight dancing in their dreams
after losses in the Round of 16 each of
the previous two seasons.
It was supposed to be different this
;time around. This time, they'd be at
home, waking up in their own beds
and playing within the comforts of
James G. Pressly Stadium.
And for about 40 minutes it looked
like it would be different.
The Cators withstood early agrs-


sive play from
the A ges
with a Li
SRuberry goal
in the 16th
minute.

Hy-Lite Reels I said, it aH

The A ges
scored two goals within 46 sec nds
of each other that sucked the life out
of Pressly Stadium. The second goal
came so quickly that after the game
UF still wasn't sure what had hap-
pened.
But even with that, UF came out
with more energy in the second half
than one would have expected. The
final 10 minutes felt like a part of the

"In the half court, we play very

Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim,
known for his trademark 2-3 zone,
has bucked tradition in favor of an
aggressive man-to-man defense

over UF as a high school senior.
"We obviously recruited
Devendorf, so I think people know
how I feel about him," DoIxiovan
said.
He and Flynn have the ability to
score from the perimeter or off the
dribble. -
While Flynn and Devendorf
pose a threat in the backcourt, the
Gators' toughest challenge will be
guarding the Orange's frontcourt
combination of forwardPaul Harris
and center Arinze Onuaku. Harris,
a 6-foot-5 junior, is a dynamic scorer
who may cause problems for UF's
inexperienced big men.
"Paul Harris is one of those
undersized, really athletic forwards
that's physical and has a lot. of
bounce off the floor," Donovan
said. "He's a tough matchup."
The task of containing Harris


A talented group of freshmen
and four returning starters seemed
to spell depth. But after the transfer
of sophomore point guard Jai Lucas
and injuries to Adam Allen and
Eloy Vargas, UF is back where it
started.
"We planned, and kind of

year. We're almost back in the same
situation we were in a year ago,"
Donovan said. "We're playing with
nmne guys."
That lack of depth may come to
haunt the Gators when they tip off
with the Orange at 7:30 p.m. in the
Sprint Center on ESPN2.
If there is one thing Syracuse
has, it's depth. The Orange return

"We're on track to do that if
we go in and have strong, con-
sistent performances," UF coach
Todd Morgari said.
"This course suits us prob-
ably suits us better than the last
two we've run. If our girls get
good footing and can get into a
good rhythm, then they'll run~ a't
their best."
Criscione will be running his
final race as a Gator and also
his 12th career meet in the state
of Indiana without his team-


mates. Last year, he finished 99th
overall, a performance he hopes
to improve on today.
"Hopefully, I'll go out on top,"
Criscione said. "I've got nothing
to lose, so I've got to do what I
can to.run my best.'
His coach joked that there are
advantages to traveling without
his team.
"I know it'll be one guy and a
bunch of ladies, so I guess there
are some good odds for him in
certain ways," Morgan said,
laughing.

Billy Donovan has come to find
things don't always go the way you
plan them
As No. 18 UF (3-0) heads into
tonight mtchp ith Bi East
powe yras (3-0) in the semi-
final round of the O'Reilly Auto
Parts CBE Classic in Kansas City,
Mo., the Gators seem to have fallen
back into a familiar position.
After playn all of the 2007-
08 season wit a short nine-man
rotation, Donovan thought he had
spent the off-season building a
much deeper bench.

'7 haven't been in the end zone for a min-
ute," Moole said of the past few games.
Meyer frequently praises Moore, espe
cially his blocking ability, despite the senior's
lack of impact onthe scoreboard.
"Ilove Kestahn Moore," Meyer said. "In r
ally believe he's going to play (in the NFL)."
Now, the focus for UF is next weekend's
FSU game. For many players, the focus
changed to FSU during Saturday's game.
"It probably switched at halftime, to be
honest with you, for the Pounceys of the
world, the Tebows, the Murphys and Spikes,"
Meyer said. "They'11be ready to go. This is a
big ~ ek. They understand that."

bad situation," Burleigh said. "If I had to
do it over again, that is a change I would
make."
Entering Sunday's match, UF felt
more confident than it had in its other
third round matches.
Even near the end of the game,
the Gators were still certain one of the
chances they were getting would go in,
"I was pretty sure we were going
to score it felt good and we had our
chances," Kerns said.
One of the team's best chances came
with two minutes left, when Ameera
Abdullah received the ball at the penalty
kick spot and was taken out by a ques-
tionable slide from the Aggies' goalie,

what's (next) against two very good football
teams," Meyer said.
MEMiR COMMENTS ON NEWTON: Meyer was
in disbelief wheri'he heard about backup
quarterback Cameron Newton's arrest on
three felony charges
Friday.
"I'm shocked as I think
most everyone is who
kn~ows Cam," Meyer said.
"I absolutely fell out of my
chair."
Newton was charged
Newton with felony burglary,
larceny and obstruction
of justice after police reports said he stole a
$1,700 laptop from a UF student and threw it
out a window whenaolice left him to make a
call to a lawyer.
"He made his bed, he's got to sleep in it,"
Meyer said.
Newton is currently suspended from the
team.


ward Megan Kerns said.
But it all comes back to that sec-
ond goal. It's the goal heard 'round
Gainesville but apparently not seen
by anyone.
"It happened really quickly,"
Kerns said. "I'm not sure what hap-
pened. We'll have to go back and
look at the tape."
And with that, it's three straight
losses in the Round of 16.
Junior Lauren Hyde entered the


weekend saying that the Gators
didn't wiant to be known as the
team that loses in the Sweet 16.
She knows nothing but losing in
that round. While disappointment
in that fact is understandable, it
tells you just how high the expecta-
tions are for UE
And that's a good thing.
You. know your program has
made it w~hen losing in the Sweet
16 is considered a failure. And you


definitely kn~ow you're one of the
premier teams when you played
the season with 16 freshmen on
your roster, and a Round of 16 loss
is disappointment.
This idea isn't lost on coach
Becky Burleigh.
"Coming into the year, we
weren't really sure what to expect
with so many new faces," she said.
"With the departure of a good
senior class last year ... I think the


senior class this year took it upon
themselves to help the younger
players this year."
There's a lot to be happy about
if you're Burleigh or a returning
player from this team.
Expectations were that this
would be a rebuilding year, and it
was anything but.
"This year has set a great build-
ing block for the future," Burleigh
said.


Kelly Dyer.
Burleigh said she wasn't sure if a
penalty shot should have been awarded,
but she had hoped one would be called.
The injured Abdullah had to be
helped off the field, ending her college
career two minutes earlier than the rest
of the seniors.
In a year when the Gators exceeded
most people's expectations and be-
came the first team to go undefeated
in Southeastern Conference play since
the schedule format was changed, theyr
were unable to silence the talk that they
can't get past the Round of 16.
"I really don't care what other teams
think of us," Burleigh said. "I only care
what happens in our locker rdom and
what our team thinks. And Idon't think
our team thinks that."
