SWEETER THAN SUGAR

Members of the UF football team celebrate as they view the announcement that they will play ifi the BCS National Championship Game in Miami on Jan. 8 against Oklahoma.
They got the news during a dinner in the Gator Room in the Heavener Football Complex at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium on Sunday night.


Gators earn spot in BCS Championship Game against Oklahoma


By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Staff Writer
edrexler@alligator.org '

Georgia may be The Peach State,
but there were more than a few
oranges circling the Georgia Dome


field after UF defeated Alabama on
Saturday evening.
Still, the sweetness of those
oranges couldn't compare to the
sweetness of the news UF got
Sunday night
For the second time in three


years, the Gators will be playing in
the BCS National Championship
Game.
UF, No. 2 in the only BCS stand-
ings that matter, will head 300 miles
south to take on No. 1 Oklahoma at
Dolphin Stadium in Miami on Jan. 8,


seven days after the Orange Bowl is
played at the same venue. The two
teams have never met.
The Gators finished just .018
points ahead of No. 3 Texas in the
standings, the Longhorns being
their only barrier to a matchup with


the Sooners.
To say waiting for the announce-
ment was nerve-racking for coach
Urban Meyer would be a gross un-
derstatement.

SEE BCS, PAGE 15


UF rolled its
way to a 31-
20 win against

Students face ticket woes


By LAUREN BAKER
Alligator Writer
lbaker@alligator.org

While the Gators prepared
to battle the Crimson Tide in
the Southeastern Conference
Championship game, some UF
students were battling a long
line just to enter the stadium.
All 1,500 UF students waited
in line to exchange their vouch-
ers for tickets and enter the
Georgia Dome on Saturday,
some for about an hour.
UF students were required
to present their Gator 1 Cards
and another form of identifica-
tion with their ticket vouchers
to gain tickets and enter the
stadium.
Justin Smith, a UF history se-
nior, said he got in line at about
3:15 p.m. with about 20 people
behind him.


UF ADMINISTRATION


While matching people's
names to their vouchers and
checking them off a list might
have kept ticket scalping to
a minimum, Smith said the
overall effort seemed fruitless
and slowed entry down to a
snail-like pace.
He said the feeling of those
around him was one of general
frustration.
"We started
Student chanting, 'This is
LfO bulls-,' and the
whole line kind of
agreed with us," he said.
Smith said he missed kick-
off and the first five minutes of
the game because of the delay.
Even stadium employees in
charge of the ticket exchange
were grouchy, he said.
"They were probably get-
ting an earful from all of us,"
Smith said.


Smith said University of
Alabama fans he saw got inside
with no problem.
Steven Duva, a friend of
Smith's who got in line around
2:45 p.m., said ID checkers were
stringent in the beginning, but
Smith said he was just waved
in by the time he made it to
the front of the line. Both Duva
and Smith said they expected
a set-up similar to basketball
games, where Gator 1 Cards are
swiped in via laptop.
Smith said any frustration
died away once he got a ticket
and put his head in the game.
"We got in, and Tebow was
on the 10 and we scored," he
said.-"So that was the end of it
right there."
The University Athletic
Association could not be
reached for comment over the
weekend.


Trustees consider bonus, fees


UF President Bernie Machen's bonuses,
totaling $285,000, will be up for discussion at
UF's Board of Trustees meeting Monday.
The board, UF's highest governing body,
will decide if Machen will receive the bo-
nuses this year.
Last year, the board approved his bonuses
by a vote of 12-1, with Trustee Al Warrington
voting against the extra pay.
Machen earned $731,811 in the 2007-2008
fiscal year, including bonuses, retirement
pay and a car allowance, according to a
November report from the Chronicle of
Higher Education.
The board will base its vote on whether
Machen has achieved certain one-year and
three-year goals agreed to in advance by the
board and Machen.


The board will also review a request to in-
crease the Activity & Service fee and Student
Health Fee by a combined $1.77 per credit
hour. No estimates were available for the in-
crease in the transportation
Access Fee.
The increase would bring
in an estimated $1,417,000
in 2009-2010, according to
board documents.
A proposed rent increase
Machen of $10 per month for dorms
will also go up for a vote.
The increase, which would generate about
$294,240 in the spring term, seeks to cover a
record growth in UF's utilities expenses, ac-
cording to board documents.

Friends, family remember student for kindness, joy


By KATIE GALLAGHER and
FAITH REAVES
Alligator Writers

When Brandy Jaworski couldn't sleep and
needed to talk early Tuesday morning, she
called her friend Michael VanWagner.
Although it was 2 a.m., VanWagner, a UF
history senior, invited her over to talk and
drink iced tea.
"He would do literally anything for any-
one," said Jaworski, a UF recreation and event
management senior.
That afternoon, VanWagner was hit by a
car while riding his scooter on West University
Avenue, and the friends who had depended
on him crowded his hospital room to be there
for him. He died Thursday at Shands at UF.
VanWagner was always willing to help
anyone it didn't matter who, said his
mother, Deborah VanWagner.
"If there was somebody putting up hay on
the side of the road, he stopped and helped
them," she said.
The family lives on 40 acres in Sparr, a small
town about 20 miles south of Gainesville.
VanWagner was dose to his parents and older
sister, Dana, who works for the army in Iraq.
She took a 15-hour flight to come see him after
the accident.
"From the day he was born, pretty much,
him and his sister were always the closest of
dose," his mother said. They never fought,
except on the basketball court in their yard,
she said.
Any day of the week, VanWagner could be
found playing pick-up basketball at Southwest
Recreation Center, his friends said.
Jaworski said she met him on the court,
where he let her score at least seven points
during their first game.
Every game after that, though, his competi-
tive streak won out, and he wouldn't give up
anything.
He was extremely competitive, she said,
and would play with such intensity, his seri-
ous face would look almost mad.
As a child, he had wanted to play basket-
ball for UF, his mother said, and he coached 8-
'year-olds at UF's basketball camp the summer
before he started college.
"To him, that was about as good as playing
on the team," his mother said.
She said he was good with kids and
planned to become a teacher and basketball
coach.
He would often invite his younger cousins


to Gainesville, where he would take them rock
climbing or to football games, she said.
"He's a cousin I could always look up to
for anything," said Ryan VanWagner, 14, who
said they would go fishing, ride four-wheelers
and talk about life.
"He was like a brother to me," said his
cousin Justin Wilson, 16. "He was the type of
guy everyone could like. There wasn't any-
body that couldn't be friends with him."
As an early Christmas present, his par-
ents had paid for four tickets to Saturday's
Southeastern Conference Championship
Game, and he was looking forward to it more
than anything.
His friends put them up for sale on eBay
after the accident, intending to give the money
to his parents. They were bought by four of
VanWagner's high school buddies, who said
they planned to go in his honor.
VanWagner will be buried today with one
of the ticket stubs.
"The joy that man got out
,;. of those tickets for those two
News weeks, the joy and the bright
eyes he told his undes and
everybody, 'I'm going to the
SEC!'" his mother said.
His friend Yolisma Pifia, a UF applied
physiology and kinesiology senior, met him
in chemistry class two years ago, and she said
he took her four-wheeling, paintballing and to
see her first rodeo.
They liked to work out together, and as a
project for class, she made him her guinea pig
in a. personal training program she created.
He gained 15 pounds of muscle, which he
was proud of. Even if she couldn't make it, he
would be at the gym, she said.
He was 6 feet 4 inches tall.
"Every time he would give you a hug, he
would just swallow you," Pifia said.
Until this year, he commuted to school
from Sparr. He would often get up at 4 a.m. to
feed his cows, drive to UF for early class, then
drive home to work for his father, Pifia said,
but he always had time for his friends.
He got excited for football games and
would drive up in his beloved Nissan Titan
truck to go tailgating.
"His room was a disaster, but his truck was
dean," his mother said.
This semester, he moved to Gainesville for
his senior year.
"As a parent you think, he could have been
here with us," his mother said. But he loved
living in Gainesville so much that she doesn't

Veterans honor Harbor survivors


By ANDREA ASUAJE
Alligator Writer
aasuaje@alligator.org
As sunlight brightened a red-,
beige- and black-stoned memorial
and wind swept flapping flags,
veterans of World War II were
honored and remembered.
Sunday marked the 67th an-
niversary of the Japanese attacks
on Pearl Harbor, and the Korean
War Veterans Association held
its fourth annual Pearl Harbor
Survivors and World War 11
Veterans Recognition Day.
The memorial took place at
the Kanapaha Veterans Memorial
Park off Tower Road.
Michael Gannon, World War II
historian and professor emeritus
at UF,, gave the. ceremony's key-
note speech about Adm. Husband
Kimmel, whom he called the last
U.S. Navy victim of Pearl Harbor.
Gannon, an expert in U.S.
Naval history and the author
of eight books, told the story of
Kimmel, who was blamed for not
preventing the Japanese attacks
and was never fully exonerated of
the charges.
Gannon has been researching
Kimmel and working on clearing
his name for several years.
He said he hopes Vice
President-elect Joe Biden will pass
the measure through Congress,
since the senator had previously
pushed for the move.
The UF Air Force ROTC drill
team also performed at the memo-
rial, spinning and tossingrifles.
Jim Lynch, Alachua County
veterans officer and master of
ceremony at the memorial service,
said the ceremony was about
never letting memories fade and
passing on the -memories to a
younger generation.
"Today is a day to remember,"
Lynch said during the ceremony.
Phil Newman and his wife,
Chick, attended Sunday's memo-
rial but said young people no
longer seem to care.
"They want to hear about the
Gators," Newman said.


Michael Gannon, professor emeritus of history at UF, shakes hands
and speaks with audience members after giving a speech about
Pearl Harbor at Kanapaha Veterans Park on Sunday afternoon.


"They don't want to hear about
us."
Newman is a part of Decrepit
Birdmen of World War II, a group
of veterans who go to schools and
educate students on the history of
the war.


Newman said at the rate World
War II veterans are dying about
1,000 a day the stories of World
War II are disappearing.
"I suppose, one of these days,
there won't be anyone left to re-
member," he said.

Big Bucks

Machen should refuse

his bonus
H ere at the Editorial Board, we like money, and we
aren't afraid to admit it.
Maybe it's because we don't see it all that often.
Regardless of the reason, we're pro-money. We think it's a
good thing to have.
We don't really understand, though, having $285,000
extra thrown at someone during a time when millions of
others are losing sleep and turning gray trying to make
ends meet on $8 an hour.
Nothing personal, Bernie.
You have a substantial salary as is. You have a car al-
lowance.
Do you need another quarter million-plus to handle
your bills?
We hope the Board of Trustees approves your bonus,
but even more so, we hope you will follow in the footsteps
of several other university leaders by refusing to accept
your bonus this year.
Millions of people are struggling to find work, and
you're having money handed to you on a silver platter.
We would love to be in your position, and we assume it
would be incredibly difficult to turn down a $285,000 pat
on the back for a job well done.
Hell, if somebody wanted to tell us our editorials were
"righteous" and "kick-ass," and then offered to shotgun a
beer with us, we would pee our pants with excitement.
Listen, Mr. President, we can only imagine how far that
amount of money could go, but for the sake of economy
(and nobility), please refuse your bonus if it gets ap-
proved.
Unless, of course, you want to give the Editorial Board
front-row seats to the BCS Championship game in Miami.


Blame Game


he ticketing system
employed by the
University Athletic
Association has more than
lived up to its irritating repu-
tation this semester.
Forget the UF-Georgia
game. We play them in
Jacksonville, so driving for
an hour to hang out ticketless
at the Landing isn't really the
end of the world. It ended
up not mattering this year
anyway.
The ticket debacle before
the Southeastern Conference
Championship made us want
to Frisbee-toss our laptops out
of our bedroom windows.
After arriving in Atlanta,
the .privileged few who got
tickets to. the UF-Alabama
game had to suffer through
slow-moving lines because
UF wanted to ensure the
tickets issued to its students
weren't being scalped.
The exact problem with
the UAA's ticketing system
can't really be pinned down,


so we won't try.
Instead, we're going to
blame the whole process top
to bottom, students included.
No matter how the UAA
goes about distributing
tickets, someone is going to
whine about something.
If you didn't get tickets,
get over it. You still have a
TV.
If you did get tickets, don't
complain that you had to wait
to get into the Georgia Dome
because everyone else was
sitting at home watching the
game.
And if you work for the
UAA, don't lose any sleep
over the complaints because
They're always going to be
there.
All we're trying to say
is, no process is perfect, and
some people have to be
skipped over or left out.
Let's just be happy our
football team is good enough
to provide us with so many
chances to complain.

Most UF students pretentious, dumb


Here's some breaking news for youw-Going to college
plus making noise with your mouth does not equal
saying something intelligent. Shut up I'm tired
of hearing you blabber.
I cannot walk 10 feet without hearing another one of
you babbling about socioeconomic issues that you do not
understand, and how we have to change them.
I constantly overhear you telling each other about how
you won't buy this or that because of the moral atrocities
the company has committed, but you walk around with
electronics in your pocket worth enough money to feed the
entire Christian Children's Fund for a month.
Stop talking about banning dihydrogen monoxide it's
water.
Don't open your mouth about the viability of ethanol
fuels it's your fault corn prices got so high and gas prices
didn't do a damn thing except keep going up.
Stop trying to solve world hunger. People have to be
hungry; it's the way the world works. We have the ability
to feed the entire planet. We can do it. Here's the problem:.
If we put that much food on the market, food prices would
plummet, the farmers would go bankrupt and then no one
would have food. Solving world hunger is a bad idea. Shut
up and live with it.
Stop talking about how we have to change the world
and how China is such a terrible place. Their culture wants
the government they have because they have a different
social paradigm than we do over here.
For you to tell them they don't have enough freedom is
oppressively arrogant. For the U.S. to force its understand-
ing of the social contract on any other nation is the restric-
tion of freedom of which you are accusing the Chinese
government.


Stop babbling about genetically
engineered foods. Genetically engi-
W n needed foods lower the cost of pro-
duction, which allows us to feed
more people without bankrupting
the farmers.
Wes Hunt And no, putting jellyfish genes
letters@alligator.org in a tomato so it will glow in the
dark will not make you glow in the
dark. If that was how it worked,
we would be walking around with an udder or two, filling
our own milk glasses, and teenagers would knock us over
while we slept standing up.
Do not tell me about fighting for people's freedom. No
one is free. That is the summation of the social contract. If I
eat an apple, you are no longer free to eat that apple.
By existing, I am infringing upon your freedoms and
vice versa.
People who have to spend their day working to pay for
rent, food, utilities and gasoline, but can't afford the spare
time or money to play the sport or instrument they love,
whenever and wherever they want is free. *
To the UF population (save for a few): You are morons.
More coherent thoughts can be found in a randomly chosen
preschool. Of course, preschoolers have the advantage of
not having been intellectually corrupted by two decades of
being told what is important, what they should be doing
and where their lives should go.
Please, close your mouths. Anyone who understands the
implications of your words will just find you to be an idiot.
Anyone who doesn't is an idiot. You're all giving me a
headache.
Wes Hunt is a history senior.

Letters to the Editor
Campus smoking ban ineffective, silly
As a smoker on campus, I have been told
to move to beyond 50 feet by a UF employee.
Not nicely or properly, but in the form of
walking by, saying "50 Feet!"
Most students would -have had no idea.
what she was saying.
I was already standing about 50 feet from
the building.
Stand next to a building the next time
you are on campus. Take 17 strides (no baby
steps, they should be about three feet each).
You are now about 50 feet from the building.
See how close you are, then think about
how silly this policy is.,
Why not set up small smoking areas in a
few places across campus instead of sweep-
ing bans?


Santa Fe College's policy is being better
enforced because their police officers will
write you a ticket.
Nothing says compliance like The Man
handing you a bill.
Allen DeLaney
UF alumnus



Cutting language programs cuts culture
Think back to when you applied to col-
lege. There were piles of applications and
many opportunities to go to other schools,
but each of us chose to come to UF.
I chose to become a Gator after visiting the
campus and hearing about the openness and
diversity of UF. I felt like I belonged.


With the recent budget cuts, I question our
university's dedication to that vision.
Last Wednesday, more than 60 students
representing various organizations, includ-
ing Asian-American Student Union, Black
Student Union and .Student Government,_
rallied at Dauer Hall to show their support
for the Vietnamese and Korean language
programs.
The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences'
layoffs eliminate these language programs
completely. Andrea Pham, a tenure-track
professor, is the sole Vietnamese profes-
sor. Losing her is losing the program, and
students are not happy. Both Vietnamese-
American students and non-heritage stu-
dents enjoy the class.
All Vietnamese classes this semester are


over the cap, and registration for next semes-
ter is already full.
Many students, including me, are taking
Vietnamese now, as it may very well be the
last chance we get.
I would like to thank the CLAS faculty
for voting to reinstate our professors and
lecturers.
Kudos to the Alligator for documenting
our efforts.
To the administration, please don't take
away these programs. It's more than a dollar
sign. It's our language, our heritage and our
culture.
Think back when you came to UF and ask
yourself, is this diversity?

County to use grant for soil, water contamination tests


* SPRINGSTEAD CREEK
WILL BE TESTED.

By ANDREA ASUAJE
Alligator Writer
aasuaje@alligator.org
County scientists will use grant
money this January to perform
tests on possible hazards of a local
contaminated site.
A $108,295 grant will be used


toward existing programs and also
to fund projects to test the water
and sediment at Cabot-Koppers,
a location off North Main Street
known as a Superfund site by the
U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency.
The site was contaminated by a
wood-preserving chemical plant,
which is still on the site.
The soil at Cabot-Koppers will
be tested for wood-preserving
chemicals, such as arsenic and


copper, that are used at the plant,
said John Mousa, pollution pre-
vention manager with the Alachua
County Environmental Protection
Department.
Springstead Creek, which flows
through the site from North Main
Street into Hogtown Creek, will be
tested for toxic materials, Mousa
said.
Residents around the creek
have observed some tar in the wa-
ter and at the bottom of the creek


and have begun to ask questions,
he said.
"There were concerns that this
tar might be hazardous," he said.
He said the
Environmental tests would
IssueS determine
whether this
is true.
Mousa said the last time the
sediment was tested was about 10
years ago, and the tests were not
extensive.


"This is going to be a much
more thorough, more comprehen-
sive service," he said.
Superfund sites can be found all
over the country, he said.
He said the sites are contami-
nated and either must be cleaned
up or the contamination needs to
be contained.
Mousa hopes these tests will
address some of the residents' con-
cerns, though he is unsure of how
the tests will turn out.

Gators prepare for high-scoring Sooners offense, QB Sam Bradford


BCS, from page 1


"Zero sleep," Meyer said. "And
when I say zero, zero. ... It's an
imperfect system, but I think it's a
system that's functional right now.
You just never know."
This team's season was defined
back in September after a loss to
Mississippi. At that point, Meyer
did not think he had a team that
could get to a national champion-
ship game.
"I didn't see the same maturity
level (as I do now)," Meyer said. "I
saw a very talented group, but I was
hoping it would develop into this."
After reeling off nine straight


wins in dominant fashion, the Gators
were rewarded Sunday night.
When the UF logo appeared on
the giant projector screen alongside
Oklahoma's in the Gator Room
inside the Heavener Complex, play-
ers raised their arms in the air and
cheered. Their steak dinners could
wait.
Mike and Maurkice Pouncey
walked around the room giving
thumbs up to all who would look,
then walked to fellow offensive line-
men Phil Trautwein and Jim Tartt to
give them congratulatory shoulder
rubs.
Percy Harvin, sprained right
ankle and all, hobbled over to that
side of the room, a smile on his. face.
Players jostled for position around


Meyer as he prepared for his live
television interview.
It was almost as if UF were con-
tinuing its rampant celebration from
Saturday night's victory. ,
Now, the Gators have more than
four weeks off before facing what
may be their toughest challenge yet.
Fans have been asking to see
a matchup of teams from the
Southeastern Conference and Big 12
Conference all season. Ask, and ye
shall receive.
The Sooners bring a Heisman-
hopeful quarterback in Sam
Bradford, who leads the country's
best offense into South Florida.
Oklahoma has put up at least 58
points in its last six games, including
victories against No. 8 Texas Tech,


No. 13 Oklahoma State and No. 25
Missouri in the last three weeks.
"Our defense, we like to have
challenges," UF cornerback Joe
Haden said.
"People are saying (Alabama)
wasn't a really good
offense, so we want
to play against one
of the best offenses
Football so' we can really
prove how good our
defense is."
A second national championship
.in three years is not out of the ques-
tion if UF's defense is able to hold
down Oklahoma like it did Alabama
in the SEC Championship Game.
As Saturday's revelry wound
down, defensive end Carlos Dunlap


held the SEC Championship trophy
aloft to the hundreds of fans still
remaining as he walked into the
locker room.
Inside, Dunlap admitted the win
had not hit him yet.
Junior running back Brandon
James piped up from the other side
of the room.
"It'll hit your ass when you get
back to Gainesville," James said.
They're back in Gainesville now,.
and the victory is all behind them.
Perhaps one more victory is
ahead, and that one could elevate
this team's status to the greatest in
school history.
"Miami sounds real good,"
Haden said Saturday.
See you there.

Gators take

home SEC crown

By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

ATLANTA Urban Renewal has paved
the way for Urban Domination.
One of the more historic runs in recent
college football history continued Saturday
afternoon as then-No. 2 UF outlasted then-
No. 1 Alabama 31-20 in front of 75,892
orange, blue, crimson and white fans at the
Georgia Dome, clinching the Gators' spot in
the National Championship Game on Jan. 8
against Oklahoma.
And this time they did it in a whole new
way. They won by coming from behind.
Trailing 20-17 at the start of the fourth
quarter, the Gators were 15 scoreless min-
utes away from a probable Sugar Bowl bid
that would've left them in the hallows of
"should'ves" and "would'ves."
"We really haven't had to play in the
fourth quarter for a long time," cornerback
Joe Haden said.
Tim Tebow must've been saving up his
fourth-quarter energy for a long time, then.
Tebow was about as perfect as a signal-
caller can be in a quarter as.he led the Gators
on two scoring drives, sealing the biggest UF
win since the Gators' National Championship
Gi victory two years ago.
The two drives engineered by Tebow
totaled 19 plays and 127 yards and gobbled
up 10:24 of dock. Tebow kept the ball in his
hands on 9 of those nineteen plays.
"I don't know the entire history of the
University of Florida," UF coach Urban
Meyer said, "but I can imagine that drive arid
that fourth quarter will go. down as one of the
greatest ever at University of Florida."
That fourth quarter left UF's Heisman
winner all tuckered out, too. As has become
tradition, Tebow took a victory lap but
.this time he did so after playing the fourth

ence Championship Game against Alabama in the Georgia Dome in Atlanta on Saturday.


quarter rather than standing on the sidelines
waiting for 15 minutes.
"That was practically the hardest part of
the day," Tebow said of the victory lap. "I was
getting so tired."
So was Alabama's defense. The Gators
came in as the team with speed, but they left
with much more.
"The only reason they looked past our


toughness is because (of) our speed," Haden
said. "Our speed outweighs our toughness,
but that doesn't mean we're not tough. We
can still be fast and tough at the same time.
We're just as tough. We can still be pretty and
tough at the same time."
Unfortunately for the Tide, they found
that out the hard way.
"They say we weren't tough. They say we


weren't physical," said senior wide receiver
Louis Murphy, who had a team-high 86 re-
ceiving yards. "Today, we out-toughed and
out-physically played them."
While the critics will now stop talking
about the Gators' lack of physicality, they'll
just keep on yapping about the Gators'
speed.

Tebow's comeback fourth quarter fills gaping hole in resume


ATLANTA -
The Southeastern Conference
Championship was hyped as an
old-school-versus-new-school
clash, but in the end, there was
only one major difference between
No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 UF.
Without top playmaker Percy
Harvin in the lineup, the Gators'
electrifying brand of football
disappeared. The Crimson Tide
defense's closing speed made mis-


direction runs, sweeps and option
plays largely ineffective.
But UF had a trump card: quar-
terback Tim Tebow.
"The Chosen One" delivered
the performance coach Urban
Meyer and UF fans expected
when Tebow first shipped off to
dainesville three years ago, throw-
ing for 216 yards and three touch-
downs on 14-of-22 passing in the
Gators' 31-20 win.

mmccall@alligator.org Tebow.
In the
fourth quarter, Wilson was sacked


twice (though one was called
back), completed just one of his
four passes and threw an inter-
ception on the Crimson Tide's
final offensive play. Tebow led two
60-plus yard touchdown drives to
give the Gators the lead and put
the game away.
"When the score is 20-17, we
didn't finish like we needed to,
and they did," Alabama coach
Nick Saban said. "And (Tebow)
made a lot of those plays."


The fourth quarter filled in a
few holes on Tebow's resume as a
starting quarterback, as he added
an SEC title as well as a come-
from-behind win, the absence of
which has plagued him since high
school.
At St. Augustine Nease High,
Tebow's Panthers were on the los-
ing end of close games more often

Receivers rise to challenge without injured Harvin


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

ATLANTA Somehow, UF has discov-
ered even more offensive firepower.
On a day when the Gators needed to re-
place the irreplaceable, they did. .
With star do-it-all junior Percy Harvin side-
lined with a high right ankle sprain, then-No.
2 UF opened up its toy chest of playmakers
and discovered a few new, shiny knickknacks
in its 31-20 win Saturday afternoon in the
Southeastern Conference Championship.
Juniors David Nelson, Riley Cooper and
Carl Moore each caught one of Tim Tebow's
three total touchdowns.
"We can't replace Percy," Cooper said.
"That's obvious."
The Gators did their best to make that a
vague concept against the Crimson Tide.
And it wasn't just the fact that they caught
the touchdowns, it was when they did it.
Cooper caught what ended up being the
game-clinching score with 2:50 left on third-
and-goal from the 5.
That catch made the game 31-20 and of-
ficially put it out of reach for Alabama's run-
oriented offense.
Moore's catch that gave the Gators the
momentum at the beginning of the game, and


MIKE, from page 16


story for the last two seasons at UF.
In losses to Auburn and LSU in
2007, Tebow had late chances to lead
the Gators to victory, and another
shot at last-minute heroics fell short in
September against Mississippi.
But Tebow wasn't to be denied in the
biggest game of, his career, turning in a
clutch performance.
All three of his touchdown tosses
came on third downs, and he converted
on all three of his third-down rushing
attempts. And when the Gators faced ad-
versity in the fourth quarter for the first
time in more than two months, Tebow
went to work, completing all five of his
passes for 72 yards.
He put the nail in the Crimson Tide's
coffin with a 5-yard scoring strike to
roommate Riley Cooper with 2:50 re-
maining.
"That fourth quarter was vintage Tim
Tebow," coach Urban Meyer said.
In two of the game's key moments,


Nelson's grab put Florida up at halftime.
"I basically told (the team), this is it," said
Harvin, who addressed the team before the
game. "Don't come back in the locker room if
you ain't leave it all out on the field or you'll
have to face me and look me in the eye and tell
me you hadn't given everything."
Just a few weeks ago, it was hard for even
Nelson himself to see this coming. Nelson has
been known as a blocking receiver, but the
past few weeks he showed he can do more.
"I didn't come in a su-
Gators perstar. I didn't come in a
'.-.: [ *.-" starter," Nelson said. "I just
stepped in for Percy It's an
unbelievable feeling."
With the way Nelson has been playing, it's
a feeling that may continue.
The trio of Moore, Cooper and Nelson were
quiet early and some even expected Moore,
one of the top-rated junior college players in
the country last year, to start but those three
are starting to find a groove.
"Now playing, actually doing something,
it's special," Nelson said
Making plays can take its toll on you,
though.
"I was so out of breath celebrating, I sort of
had to push everybody away," Cooper said.
Maybe he should gasp for air more often.


Tebow drew enough attention from
the defense to open up lanes for others.
When defenders ran fo him on a third-
and-5, he flipped a shovel pass to tight
end Aaron Hernandez for a 6-yard gain.
Two plays later, Tebow drew the same
attention on a run to his left, and when
he pitched to running back Jeff Demps,
there was nobody left to keep the speed-
ster from the end zone.
That score was UF's first of the sec-
ond half, putting the Gators ahead 24-20.
When they got the ball back a few min-
utes later with their lead intact, words
weren't necessary.
"He doesn't have to say anything,"
receiver David Nelson said. "He has this
quiet confidence and this aura about him
where you know that he's going to lead
you to victory. When he steps in that
huddle, everybody respects him and
trusts him, so when he looks you in the
eye, you know it's time to go to work."
Now Tebow will have a chance
to round out his legacy in the BCS
Championship Game, and there's no
reason to think he won't be the difference
in that contest as well.

UF gives up just 4.1 yards per rush


SEC, from page 16

With the emergence of other receivers
such as Riley Cooper and David Nelson,
the potential return of Percy Harvin in
the title game is going to make Oklahoma
quiver while watching tape.
"We didn't want to come out here
today and risk anything serious," Harvin
said. "So I'll be ready for the National
Championship Game."
When offensive linemen Carl Johnson
and Marcus Gilbert chest-bumped each
other, you could almost see the Gators'
past opponents squashed in the middle.
Now nobody is standing between them
and a trip to the national championship.
"If we don't prepare the right way and
we make mistakes and we play without
our energy and our passion, they can
beat us then," middle linebacker Brandon
Spikes said. "If we come out and hitting all
our keys and playing with a lot of passion,
they can't beat us."
That's something Alabama coach
Nick Saban found out the hard way. The
Crimson Tide ran the ball well, totaling 136
yards on the ground, but UF's depleted de-


fensive line rarely had a total breakdown.
UF gave up just 4.1 yards per rush.
When you're going against UF's of-
fense, however, you have to run the ball
better than that to control the clock and
keep the ball out of the Gators' hands.
"Man, we had them covered about as
well as you can cover them," said Saban,
referring to UF's fourth-quarter drives.
"That ball is in a small space that tti

Now the Gators are
one game away from
their second- national
title in three years.
"They got one more
game to go," said for-
mer UF quarterback
Chris Leak, who was
Leak the starting signal-caller
on the 2006 title team.
For Meyer, who was hired four years
ago, this is just another chapter in what's
becoming a novel of achievements.
"This will go down as one of the great
wins in Florida football history," Meyer
said.
Just wait until January. Meyer might
have to say those words again.

UF advances to Round of 16 after weekend sweeps


* THE GATORS WILL FACE NO. 2
STANFORD ON FRIDAY.

By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

For weeks, UF coach Mary Wise has paid
lip service to the remarkable improvement of
her team during the last three months, but
now she has something tangible to measure
it by.
On Sept. 13, Colorado State sent UF home
from its two-game road trip on the wrong
end of a sweep. It was the first time out of
Florida for the Gators' six true freshmen, and
1g looked like a team depending on a large
contingent of first-year talent.
Saturday night, the Gators (27-3) got a
. chance to prove how far they have come
when they squared off with the Rams (23-7) in


.I With that performance against the No. 1
team in the country. Tebow might have
conviniced some voters to give him the
Heisman. All inree of his touchdowns
came on third downs inside Ine 10-yard
line, ano ne also haa three thira-down
runs and one third-down pass thar
earned his team first downs. In his first
. *ever comeback win after enteringithe
S' fourth quarter behind. Tebow helped
QB, Jr. send UF to Miami for me BCS National
Championship Game.
6 14-22 passing, 216 yds, 3 TDs, 17 rushes, 57 yds


the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
UF returned the favor, sweeping (25-21,
25-17, 25-23) Colorado State in the O'Connell
Center in front of a modest crowd of fans
that wasn't busy celebrating the UF football
team's win in the Southeastern Conference
Championship Game. The Gators also swept
Florida A&M in the opening round.
UF advances to regional play, which is
held in Fort Collins, Colo., for the 17th time
in Wise's 18 years as coach.
The No. 11 Gators will take on No. 2
Stanford on Friday in the regional semifinals
and will take on No. 6 Hawaii or No. 10
Purdue if they advance.
"They're a young team, but I think they
' played with a great deal more maturity to-
night than they did when they were at our
place," Colorado State coach Tom Hilbert
said.
The biggest surprise of the night wasn't
that UF found a way to top Colorado State, it


In a game where the Gators' defens-ve
tackle rosier was down to just four
players, Cunningnfam made up for ri
Dy putting tle pressure on Albanma
quarterback John Parker Wilson from
tne outside. Cunningham got the
game's only sack on Wilson late in the
fourth quarter. erfeciively ending any
chance of a Crimson Tide comeback. H
ITIn[Jim would have Iainld anotiner .f he Gators

quanei ana he rusneri Wilson into

5 tackles, 1 sack-


was the way the Gators defeated the Rams.
UF out-blocked Colorado State nine to
five after being out-blocked in the first meet-
ing 12 to two.
"I don't know which stat is more surpris-
ing, the fact that we had
nine blocks or the fact
that they had only five,"
Wise said. "Both are pretty
amazing."
In addition to the domi-
nance at the net, the Gators
sided out extremely well
and didn't allow the Rams
to run points in the serve game.
Colorado State aided UF's sideout success
by recording 12 service errors and just two
aces. By comparison, the Gators committed
only three errors against four aces.
As they have all season, UF's freshman
class had a huge impact on the outcome.

Colleen Ward showed just how far they have
come as a unit.
"I know we always talk about having a

but I don't even think of them as freshmen
anymore," senior middle blocker Kelsey
Bowers said. "They're so mature now, and
it's great playing with them, they're right on
pace with everyone else."
Ward logged seven kills on a team-high
.429 hitting percentage and added six digs
on defense.
"We tried to pick on her a little bit, and it
didn't work out very well," Hilbert said.
Murphy put down eight kills on a .353
hitting percentage, dished out 13 assists and
dug out five balls in her usual well-rounded
performance.
"That's the best recruiting class in the
United States," Hilbert said. "We know all
those players. We did not underestimate
Florida. We know they're good."

Defense steps up in fourth quarter to stop Alabama


By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Staff Writer
edrexler@alligator.org

ATLANTA. Joe Haden
thought his ankle was ruined.
UF's cornerback was squirm-
ing in pain midway through the
second quarter on the Georgia
Dome turf, teammates crowding
around him to see if he was OK.
No. 1 UF's entire defense was
hurting at that point in the game,
as then-No. 1 Alabama was rack-
ing up rushing yards at will be-
hind running back Glen Coffee.
But Haden got back up. He
tested his ankle on the sideline,
ran a few sprints and when the
trainers asked if he could con-
tinue, he answered definitively.
"I was like, 'Yeah, I can go,'"
Haden said. "I didn't know if I
was gonna get out of this (with-
out) my ankle having to get cut
off."
Nothing that dramatic had to
happen. Haden recovered in time
to break up a pass and make a
tackle on Alabama's next drive.
"I. was going to get hurt even
worse if I was thinking about
it," Haden said. "I just had to go
out there and just act like I was
healthy."
The UF defense recovered, too,
in time to stonewall Alabama's
running backs.
Coffee, who had dominated
up the middle and collected 110


yards in the first three quarters,
finished the game with 112 and
couldn't add to Alabama's final
tally of 20 points.
"Twenty points against that
outfit?" coach Urban Meyer said.
"We'll take that and go."
And even when the Crimson
Tide passing game tried to get
things going late, the Gators' dec-
imated defensive line down to
just four healthy tackles had
an answer.
Alabama quarterback John
Parker Wilson completed just a
single pass for 10 yards in the
game's final frame, and the Tide
ran just seven plays.
Defensive end Carlos Dunlap
laughed when he recalled how
crazy he made Wilson in the final
minutes.
"I knew I had to get back
and get in his face, otherwise he
would make the plays," Dunlap
said.
"I figured I had to make the
play first."
Defensive tackle Brandon
Antwine, who tore his ACL
against FSU on Nov. 29, was
standing on the sidelines with
"SEC 2008" shaved into his head.
After the game, he leaned on
crutches, rolling down his face.
"It's family_ effort," Antwine
said. "I wouldn't say team effort.
We're a family, man."
In Alabama's final drive,

Cunningham put pressure on
Wilson, causing him to heave up
a desperation pass.
On the other end of that


throw? Haden and his seemingly
fine ankle.
"That's just how he's been
preparing all year," Dunlap said.


"He's been practicing all summer
and getting everything ready and
being one of the best lockdown
corners in the nation."


UF pays back N.C. State


* THE GATORS HAVE WON THEIR
LAST EIGHT GAMES.

By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Alligator Writer
cyazbec@alligator.org

For a team looking to avenge its
season-ending blowout loss at North
Carolina State last season, UF was led
by seniors and sparked by newcomers
to help it seek revenge Sunday.
UF (8-1) returned to Raleigh, N.C.,
more than eight months after an 80-
55 pounding, and led wire-to-wire
in a 66-61 victory, thanks to the help
of seniors Marshae Dotson and Sha
Brooks.
After Dotson struggled against
the Wolfpack in March, scoring just 6
points, she added 13 points and nine
rebounds this time around, including
a key shot late in the game.
"My hat goes off to Marshae be-,
cause she was 6 of 9 tonight, and I feel
like she's just getting her head beat in
every time that she is in the paint,"
UF coach Amanda Butler said. "She
gets no calls. It's kind of like Shaquille
O'Neal. It seems like she gets fouled
on every play, and she still keeps bat-
tling, has done a great job of maintain-
ing her composure, despite all that
contact."
Meanwhile, Brooks, starting her
100th consecutive game, single-hand-
edly iced the game from the free-


throw line, tallying 9 of her 15 points
from the charity stripe.
Junior transfer guard Steffi
Sorensen and freshman guard Trumae
Lucas provided the spark the Gators
needed in the second half, hitting big
shots at the right time to help extend
UF's lead late in the game.
When North Carolina State seemed
to be recapturing momentum nearing
the five-minute mark, Sorensen nailed
a three to put the Gators up 57-46 and
cease any hope the
Wolfpack had left.
"That's players
making plays," Butler
said of Dotson's and
Sorensen's clutch
shots. "That's not
uDotson f coaches drawing up
plays or anything
like that."
Lucas, who had friends and family
from her hometown of Greensboro,
N.C., in attendance, had her biggest
game to date, adding 9 points.
UF has now won eight in a row, in-
cluding five away from home.
"It's going to be important for us
to maintain our intensity," Butler said.
"When you win a few ballgames in a
row, you maybe start thinking about
how good you are. So it's going to be
important for us to keep pushing and
being demanding."

report.


Gators lose to 'Noles again


By MIKE DIFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

TALLAHASSEE On a night when
the Seminoles student section taunted Nick
Calathes with poker chips and gambling
references, the last card fell in favor of
FSU.
With the Gators down by 2 and the clock
slipping under five seconds, Dan Werner
took a cross-court pass from Calathes and
put up a prayer.
But Lady Luck was still in Atlanta.
Werner sent the ball off the front iron,
and as it fell to the floor, garnet and gold
confetti floated alongside it.
"It felt good," Werner said of his shot. "I
thought it was in."
The Seminoles (8-1) ran their winning
streak against rival UF (6-2) to three in
a row Sunday night with a 57-55 win in
Tallahassee.
After trailing 39-30 with just less than 13
minutes left in the second half, the Gators
rallied back to tie the game at 42 inside of
eight minutes.
Calathes, who was investigated several
weeks ago for running up a significant debt
playing online poker, sparked the run with
a step-back three and closed the gap with
an alley-oop to Alex Tyus.
The two sides would go on to trade
baskets down the stretch until FSU's Ryan
Reid drilled a turn-around jump shot in the
face of Werner (10 points) with 33 seconds


left to put the Seminoles up 54-51.
"Just because they beat us two times in
a row didn't mean they were going to beat
us again," Werner said. "It was a different
year and a different team. But they did. Do
they have our number? I don't know."
The Gators struggled to contain the
towering Seminoles frontcourt. Reid (13
points) and 7-foot-1 center Solomon Alabi
(11 points) outmuscled Werner and Tyus
for most of the night.
In the face of constant antagonism from
the rowdy FSU crowd,
Calathes nearly willed
UF to victory.
The sophomore scored
Men's 16 points and dished out
- Basketball six assists amid chants of
"Full Tilt Poker.com" and
"You owe me 600 bucks."
"I thought we got the shots that we
wanted. We just didn't knock them down,"
Calathes said. "I'd trust Dan to take that
shot any day."
Donovan chose to play freshman Ray
Shipman and not senior Walter Hodge in
the game's waning minutes.
While Hodge, who hit a game winning
3-point shot against Washington earlier this
season, watched from the bench, Shipman
(6 points) scrapped his way to several criti-
cal rebounds in the final seconds.
"At the time, I thought we needed a
little more size," Donovan said. "Ray gave
us some really good minutes."

MONDAY, DECEMBER 8, 2008 N ALLIGATOR, 3 Students face ticket woes By LAUREN BAKER Alligator Writer Ibaker@aliigator.org While the Gators prepared to battle the Crimson Tide in the Southeastern Conference Championship game, some UF students were battling a long line just to enter the stadium. All 1,500 UF students waited in line to exchange their vouchers for tickets and enter the Georgia Dome on Saturday, some for about an hour. UF students were required to present their Gator 1 Cards and another form of identification with their ticket vouchers to gain tickets and enter the stadium. Justin Smith, a UF history senior, said he got in line at about 3:15 p.m. with about 20 people behind him. UF ADMINISTRAT1O0 While matching people's names to their vouchers and checking them off a list might have kept ticket scalping to a minimum, Smith said the overall effort seemed fruitless and slowed entry down to a snail-like pace. He said the feeling of those around him was one of general frustration. "We started Student chanting, 'This is 0 bulls-,' and the whole line kind of agreed with us," he said. Smith said he missed kickoff and the first five minutes of the game because of the delay Even stadium employees in charge of the ticket exchange were grouchy, he said. "They were probably getting an earful from all of us," Smith said. Trustees consider bonus, fees UF President Bernie Machen's bonuses, totaling $285,000, will be up for discussion at UF's Board of Trustees meeting Monday. The board, UF's highest governing body, will decide if Machen will receive the bonuses this year. Last year, the board approved his bonuses by a vote of 12-1, with Trustee Al Warrington voting against the extra pay. Machen earned $731,811 in the 2007-2008 fiscal year, including bonuses, retirement pay and a car allowance, according to a November report from the Chronicle of Higher Education. The board will base its vote on whether Machen has achieved certain one-year and three-year goals agreed to in advance by the board and Machen. The board will also review a request to increase the Activity & Service fee and Student Health Fee by a combined $1.77 per credit hour. No estimates were available for the increase in the transportation Access Fee. The increase would bring in an estimated $1,417,000 in 2009-2010, according to board documents. A proposed rent increase Machen of $10 per month for dorms will also go up for a vote. The increase, which would generate about $294,240 in the spring term, seeks to cover a record growth in UF's utilities expenses, according to board documents. -THOMAS STEWART I m BE I-LUr Wa 1mwrS UMK Advertise in the Spring 2009 Welcome Back edition and reach over 60,000 UF & SFCC students returning to school.

Smith said University of Alabama fans he saw got inside with no problem. Steven Duva, a friend of Smith's who got in line around 2:45 p.m., said ID checkers were stringent in the beginning, but Smith said he was just waved in by the time he made it to the front of the line. Both Duva and Smith said they expected a set-up similar to basketball games, where Gator 1 Cards are swiped in via laptop. Smith said any frustration died away once he got a ticket and put his head in the game. "We got in, and Tebow was on the 10 and we scored," he said-"So that was the end of it right there." The University Athletic Association could not be reached for comment over the weekend.

4, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, DECEMBER 8, 2008 Friends, family remember student for kindness, joy By KATIE GALLAGHER and FAITH REAVES Alligator Writers When Brandy Jaworski couldn't sleep and needed to talk early Tuesday morning, she called her friend Michael VanWagner. Although it was 2 a.m., VanWagner, a UF History senior, invited her over to talk and drink iced tea. "He would do literally anything for anyone," said Jaworski, a UF recreation and event management senior. That afternoon, VanWagner was hit by a car while riding his scooter on West University Avenue, and the friends who had depended on him crowded his hospital room to be there for him. He died Thursday at Shands at UF. VanWagner was always willing to help anyone -it didn't matter who, said his mother, Deborah VanWagner. "If there was somebody putting up hay on the side of the road, he stopped and helped them," she said. The family lives on 40 acres in Sparr, a small town about 20 miles south of Gainesville. VanWagner was close to his parents and older sister, Dana, who works for the army in Iraq. She took a 15-hour flight to come see him after the accident. "From the day he was born, pretty much, him and his sister were always the closest of close," his mother said. They never fought, except on the basketball court in their yard, she said. Any day of the week, VanWagner could be found playing pick-up basketball at Southwest Recreation Center, his friends said. Jaworski said she met him on the court, where he let her score at least seven points during their first game. Every game after that, though, his competitive streak won out, and he wouldn't give up anything. He was extremely competitive, she said, and would play with such intensity, his serious face would look almost mad. As a child, he had wanted to play basketball for UP, his mother said, and he coached 8'year-olds at UF's basketball camp the summer before he started college. "To him, that was about as good as playing on the team," his mother said. She said he was good with kids and planned to become a teacher and basketball coach. He would often invite his younger cousins to Gainesville, where lie would take them rock climbing or to football games, she said. "He's a cousin I could always look up to for anything," said Ryan VanWagner, 14, who said they would go fishing, ride four-wheelers and talk about life. "He was like a brother to me," said his cousin Justin Wilson, 16. "He was the type of guy everyone could like. There wasn't anybody that couldn't be friends with him." As an early Christmas present, his parents had paid for four tickets to Saturday's Southeastern Conference Championship Game, and he was looking forward to it more than anything. His friends put them up for sale on eBay after the accident, intending to give the money to his parents. They were bought by four of VanWagner's high school buddies, who said they planned to go in his honor. VanWagner will be buried today with one of the ticket stubs. "The joy that man got out of those tickets for those two News weeks, the joy and the bright eyes -he told his uncles and everybody, 'I'm going to the SEC!"' his mother said. His friend Yolisma Pina, a UF applied physiology and kinesiology senior, met him in chemistry class two years ago, and she said he took her four-wheeling, paintballing and to see her first rodeo. They liked to work out together, and as a project for class, she made him her guinea pig in a personal training program she created. He gained 15 pounds of muscle, which he was proud of. Even if she couldn't make it, he would be at the gym, she said. He was 6 feet 4 inches tall. "Every time he would give you a hug, he would just swallow you," Pina said. Until this year, he commuted to school from Sparr. He would often get up at 4 a.m. to feed his cows, drive to UF for early class, then drive home to work for his father, Pina said, but he always had time for his friends. He got excited for football games and would drive up in his beloved Nissan Titan truck to go tailgating. "His room was a disaster, but his truck was clean," his mother said. This semester, he moved to Gainesville for his senior year. "As a parent you think, he could have been here with us," his mother said. But he loved living in Gainesville so much that she doesn't 4'9 Michael VanWagner, a UF history senior, poses with his sister, Dana, in an undated photograph: VanWagner died Thursday after his scooter was hit by a car on Tuesday. regret letting him move. His father, Eric VanWagner, was impressed with the quality friends his son had made away from home, many of whom he met for the first time at the hospital room. "He had no problem being himself in a way that he just brought relaxation and joy and comfort," his father said. "He just brought fun. The joy of life was in that boy."

MONDAY, DECEMBER 8, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 5 AROUND GAINESVILLE Veterans honor Harbor survivors By ANDREA ASUAJE Alligator Writer aasuaje@alligator.org As sunlight brightened a red-, beigeand black-stoned memorial and wind swept flapping flags, veterans of World War II were honored and remembered. Sunday marked the 67th anniversary of the Japanese attacks on Pearl Harbor, and the Korean War Veterans Association held its fourth annual Pearl Harbor Survivors and World War II Veterans Recognition Day. The memorial took place at the Kanapaha Veterans Memorial Park off Tower Road. Michael Gannon, World War II historian and professor emeritus at UF,. gave the ceremony's keynote speech about Adm. Husband Kimmel, whom he called the last U.S. Navy victim of Pearl Harbor. Gannon, an expert in U.S. Naval -history and the author of eight books, told the story of Kimmel, who was blamed for not preventing the Japanese attacks and was never fully exonerated of the charges. Gannon has been researching Kimmel and working on clearing his name for several years. He said he hopes Vice President-elect Joe Biden will pass the measure through Congress, since the senator had previously pushed for the move. The UF Air Force ROTC drill team also performed at the memorial, spinning and tossing.rifles. Jim Lynch, Alachua County veterans officer and master of ceremony at the memorial service, said the ceremony was about never letting memories fade and passing on the memories to a younger generation. "Today is a day to remember," Lynch said during the ceremony. Phil Newman and his wife, Chick,, attended Sunday's memorial but said young people no longer seem to care. "They want to hear about the Gators," Newman said. Michael Gannon, professor emeritus of history at UF, shakes hands and speaks with audience members after giving a speech about Pearl Harbor at Kanapaha Veterans Park on Sunday afternoon. "They don't want to hear about us. Newman is a part of Decrepit Birdmen of World War II, a group of veterans who go to schools and educate students on the history of the war. Newman said at the rate World War II veterans are dying -about 1,000 a day -the stories of World War II are disappearing. "I suppose, one of these days, there won't be anyone left to remember," he said.

6, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, DECEMBER 8, 2008 Big Bucks Machen should refuse his bonus ere at the Editorial Board, we like money, and we aren't afraid to admit it. Maybe it's because we don't see it all that often. Regardless of the reason, we're pro-money. We think it's a good thing to have. We don't really understand, though, having $285,000 extra thrown at someone during a time when millions of others are losing sleep and turning gray trying to make ends meet on $8 an hour. Nothing personal, Bernie. You have a substantial salary as is. You have a car allowance. Do you need another quarter million-plus to handle your bills? We hope the Board of Trustees approves your bonus, but even more so, we hope you will follow in the footsteps of several other university leaders by refusing to accept your bonus this year. Millions of people are struggling to find work, and you're having money handed to you on a silver platter. We would love to be in your position, and we assume it would be incredibly difficult to turn down a $285,000 pat on the back for a job well done. Hell, if somebody wanted to tell us our editorials were "righteous" and "kick-ass," and then offered to shotgun a beer with us, we would pee our pants with excitement. Listen, Mr. President, we can only imagine how far that amount of money could go, but for the sake of economy (and nobility), please refuse your bonus if it gets approved. Unless, of course, you want to give the Editorial Board front-row seats to the BCS Championship game in Miami. Blame Game The ticketing system employed by the University Athletic Association has more than lived up to its irritating reputation this semester. Forget the UF-Georgia game. We play them in Jacksonville, so driving for an hour to hang out ticketless at the Landing isn't really the end of the world. It ended up not mattering this year anyway. The ticket debacle before the Southeastern Conference Championship made us want to Frisbee-toss our laptops out of our bedroom windows. After arriving in Atlanta, the privileged few who got tickets to. the UF-Alabama game had to suffer through slow-moving lines because UP wanted to ensure Uhe tickets issued to its students weren't being scalped. The exact problem with the UAA's ticketing system can't really be pinned down, so we won't try. Instead, we're going to blame the whole process top to bottom, students included. No matter how the UAA goes about distributing tickets, someone is going to whine about something. If you didn't get tickets, get over it. You still have a TV. If you did get tickets, don't complain that you had to wait to get into the Georgia Dome because everyone else was sitting at home watching the game. And if you work for the UAA, don't lose any sleep over the complaints because ,they're always going to be there. All we're trying to say is, no process is perfect, and some people have to be skipped over or left out. Let's just be happy our football team is good enough to provide us with so many chances to complain. 0 the i .aen floiid alligator Jessica DaSilva Adam Wynn EDITOR v OPINIONS EDITOR Hilary Lehman, Ken Schwencke MANAGING EDITORS The Alligator encourages comments fromt readers.

Opinions IA Column Most UF students ere's some breaking news for you: Going to college plus making noise with your mouth does not equal saying something intelligent. Shut up -I'm tired of hearing you blabber. I cannot walk 10 feet without hearing another one of you babbling about socioeconomic issues that you do not understand, and how we have to change them. I constantly overhear you telling each other about how you won't buy this or that because of the moral atrocities the company has committed, but you walk around with electronics in your pocket worth enough money to feed the entire Christian Children's Fund for a month. Stop talking about banning dihydrogen monoxide -it's water. Don't open your mouth about the viability of ethanol fuels -it's your fault corn prices got so high and gas prices didn't do a damn thing except keep going up. Stop trying to solve world hunger. People have to be hungry; it's the way the world works. We have the ability to feed the entire planet. We can do it. Here's the problem: If we put that much food on the market, food prices would plummet, the fanners would go bankrupt and then no one would have food. Solving world hunger is a bad idea. Shut up and live with it. Stop talking about how we have to change the world and how China is such a terrible place. Their culture wants the government they have because they have a different social paradigm than we do over here. For you to tell them they don't have enough freedom is oppressively arrogant. For the U.S. to force its understanding of the social contract on any other nation is the restriction of freedom of which you are accusing the Chinese government. ALLIGATOR www.alligator.org/opinion The views expressed here are not necessarily those of the Alligator. Today's question: Do you think UF President Bernie Machen should refuse his bonus? Friday's question: Would you get down in the stacks? 68% YES 32% NO 158 TOTAL VOTES Vote or post a message at www.alligator.org I c4 AI pretentious, dumb Stop babbling about genetically engineered foods. Genetically engineered foods lower the cost of production, which allows us to feed more people without bankrupting the farmers. Wes Hunt And no, putting jellyfish genes ietters@amgator.org in a tomato so it will glow in the dark will not make you glow in the dark. If that was how it worked, we would be walking around with an udder or two, filling our own milk glasses, and teenagers would knock us over while we slept standing up. Do not tell me about fighting for people's freedom. No one is free. That is the summation of the social contract. If I eat an apple, you are no longer free to eat that apple. By existing, I am infringing upon your freedoms and vice versa. People who have to spend their day working to pay for rent, food, utilities and gasoline, but can't afford the spare time or money to play the sport or instrument they love, whenever and wherever they want is free. To the UF population (save for a few): You are morons. More coherent thoughts can be found in a randomly chosen preschool. Of course, preschoolers have the advantage of not having been intellectually corrupted by two decades of being told what is important, what they should be doing and where their lives should go. Please, close your mouths. Anyone who understands the implications of your words will just find you to be an idiot. Anyone who doesn't is an idiot. You're all giving me a headache. Wes Holt is a Itintorti nut'ior.

8, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, DECEMBER 8,2008 County to use grant for soil, water contamination tests 0 SPRINGSTEAD CREEK WILL BE TESTED. By ANDREA ASUAJE Alligator Writer aasuaje@alligator.org County scientists will use grant money tUds January to perform tests on possible hazards of a local contaminated site. A $108,295 grant will be used toward existing programs and also to fund projects to test the water and sediment at Cabot-Koppers, a location off North Main Street known as a Superfund site by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The site was contaminated by a wood-preserving chemical plant, which is still on the site. The soil at Cabot-Koppers will be tested for wood-preserving chemicals, such as arsenic and copper, that are used at the plant, said John Mousa, pollution prevention manager with the Alachua County Environmental Protection Department. Springstead Creek, which flows through the site from North Main Street into Hogtown Creek, will be tested for toxic materials, Mousa said. Residents around the creek have observed some tar in the water and at the bottom of the creek and have begun to ask questions, he said. "There were concerns that this tar might be hazardous," he said. He said the Environmental tests would IssueS determine whether this is true. Mousa said the last time the sediment was tested was about 10 years ago, and the tests were not extensive. "This is going to be a much more thorough, more comprehensive service," he said. Superfund sites can be found all over the country, he said. He said the sites are contaminated and either must be cleaned up or the contamination needs to be contained. Mousa hopes these tests will address some of the residents' concerns, though he is unsure of how the tests will turn out.

MONDAY, DECEMBER 8, 2008 E ALLIGATOR, 15 Gators prepare for high-scoring Sooners offense, QB Sam Bradford BCS, from page'1 "Zero sleep," Meyer said. "And when I say zero, zero. .It's an imperfect system, but I think it's a system that's functional right now. You just never know." This team's season was defined back in September after a loss to Mississippi. At that point, Meyer did not think he had a team that could get to a national championship game. "I didn't see thesame maturity level (as I do now)," Meyer said. "I saw a very talented group, but I was hoping it would develop into this." After reeling off nine straight wins in dominant fashion, the Gators were rewarded Sunday night. When the UF logo appeared on the giant projector screen alongside Oklahoma's in the Gator Room inside the Heavener Complex, players raised their arms in the air and cheered. Their steak dinners could wait. Mike and Maurkice Pouncey walked around the room giving thumbs up to all who would look, then walked to fellow offensive linemen Phil Trautwein and Jim Tartt to give them congratulatory shoulder rubs. Percy Harvin, sprained right ankle and all, hobbled over to that side of the room, a smile on his face. Players jostled for position around Meyer as he prepared for his live television interview. It was almost as if UF were conLinuing its rampant celebration from Saturday night's victory. Now, the Gators have more than four weeks off before facing what may be their toughest challenge yet. Fans have been asking to see a matchup of teams from the Southeastern Conference and Big 12 Conference all season. Ask, and ye shall receive. The Sooners bring a Heismanhopeful quarterback in Sam Bradford, who leads the country's best offense into South Florida. Oklahoma has put up at least 58 points in its last six games, including victories against No. 8 Texas Tech, No. 13 Oklahoma State and No. 25 Missouri in the last three weeks. "Our defense, we like to have challenges," UF cornerback Joe Haden said. "People are saying (Alabama) wasn't a really good offense, so we want to play against one of the best offenses Football so we can really prove how good our defense is." A second national championship ,in three years is not out of the question if UF's defense is able to hold down Oklahoma like it did Alabama in the SEC Championship Game. As Saturday's revelry wound down, defensive end Carlos Dunlap held the SEC Championship trophy aloft to the hundreds of fans still remaining as he walked into the locker room. Inside, Dunlap admitted the win had not hit him yet. Junior running back Brandon James piped up from the other side of the room. "It'll hit your ass when you get back to Gainesville," James said. They're back in Gainesville now,. and the victory is all behind them. Perhaps one more victory is ahead, and that one could elevate this team's status to the greatest in school history. "Miami sounds real good," Haden said Saturday. See you there. UF31 D ALABAMA20 Score by Quarters Alabama UF 1 2 10 0 7 10 3 4 F 10 0 20 0 14 31 First quarter 08:17 UF -Ca.

One of the more historic runs in recent college football history continued Saturday afternoon as then-No. 2 UF outlasted thenNo. 1 Alabama 31-20 in front of 75,892 orange, blue, crimson and white fans at the Georgia Dome, clinching the Gators' spot in the National Championship Game on Jan. 8 against Oklahoma. And this time they did it in a whole new way. They won by coming from behind. Trailing 20-17 at the start of the fourth quarter, the Gators were 15 scoreless minutes away from a probable Sugar Bowl bid that would've left them in the hallows of "should'ves" and "would'ves." "We really haven't had to play in the fourth quarter for a long time," cornerback I Joe Haden said. Tim Tebow must've been saving up his fourth-quarter energy for a long time, then. Tebow was about as perfect as a signalcaller can be in a quarter as he led the Gators on two scoring drives, sealing the biggest UF win since the Gators'National Championship G&as -!victory two years ago. The two drives engineered by Tebow totaled 19 plays and 127 yards and gobbled UF sen up 10:24 of clock. Tebow kept the ball in his ence C hands on 9 of those nineteen plays. "I don't know the entire history of the quarter University of Florida," UF coach Urban wa"Tha Meyer said, "but I can imagine that drive and the day, that fourth quarter will go. down as one of the y greatest ever at University of Florida. So w That fourth quarter left UF's Heisman cam in winner all tuckered out, too.

"I was o tired." as Alabama's defense. The Gators as the team with speed, but they left ch more. only reason they looked past our toughness is because (of) our speed," Haden said. "Our speed outweighs our toughness, but that doesn't mean we're not tough. We can still be fast and tough at the same time. We're just as tough. We can still be pretty and tough at the same time." Unfortunately for the Tide, they found that out the hard way. "They say we weren't tough. They say we weren't physical," said senior wide receiver Louis Murphy, who had a team-high 86 receiving yards. "Today, we out-toughed and out-physically played them." While the critics will now stop talking about the Gators' lack of physicality, they'll just keep on yapping about the Gators' speed.

MONDAY, DECEMBER 8, 2008EALLIGATOR, 17 Receivers rise to challenge without injured Harvin By BRIAN STEELE Alligator Staff Writer bsteele@alligator.org ATLANTA -Somehow, UF has discovered even more offensive firepower. On a day when the Gators needed to replace the irreplaceable, they did. With star do-it-all junior Percy Harvin sidelined with a high right ankle sprain, then-No. 2 UF opened up its toy chest of playmakers and discovered a few new, sliny knickknacks in its 31-20 win Saturday afternoon in the Southeastern Conference Championship. Juniors David Nelson, Riley Cooper and Carl Moore each caught one of Tim Tebow's three total touchdowns. "We can't replace Percy," Cooper said. "That's obvious." The Gators did their best to make that a vague concept against the Crimson Tide. And it wasn't just the fact that they caught the touchdowns, it was when they did it. Cooper caught what ended up being the game-clinching score with 2:50 left on thirdand-goal from the 5. That catch made the game 31-20 and officially put it out of reach for Alabama's runoriented offense. Moore's catch that gave the Gators the momentum at the beginning of the game, and MIKE, from page 16 story for the last two seasons at UP. In losses to Auburn and LSU in 2007, Tebow had late chances to lead the Gators to victory, and another shotat last-minute heroics fell short in September against Mississippi. But Tebow wasn't to be denied in the biggest game of his career, turning in a clutch performance. All three of his touchdown tosses came on third downs, and he converted on all three of his third-down rushing attempts. And when the Gators faced adversity in the fourth quarter for the first time in more than two months, Tebow went to work, completing all five of his passes for 72 yards. He put the nail in the Crimson Tide's coffin with a 5-yard scoring strike to roommate Riley Cooper with 2:50 remaing. "That fourth quarter was vintage Tim Tebow," coach Urban Meyer said. In two of the game's key moments, Nelson's grab put Florida up at halftime. "I basically told (the team), this is it," said Harvin, who addressed the team before the game. "Don't come back in the locker room if you ain't leave it all out on the field or you'll have to face me and look me in the eye and tell me you hadn't given everything." Just a few weeks ago, it was hard for even Nelson himself to see this coming. Nelson has been known as a blocking receiver, but the past few weeks he showed he can do more. "I didn't come in a suGators perstar. I didn't come in a starter," Nelson said. "I just stepped in for Percy It's an unbelievable feeling." With the way Nelson has been playing, it's a feeling that may continue. The trio of Moore, Cooper and Nelson were quiet early -and some even expected Moore, one of the top-rated junior college players in the country last year, to start -but those three are starting to find a groove. "Now playing, actually doing something, it's special," Nelson said Making plays can take its toll on you, though. "I was so out of breath celebrating, I sort of had to push everybody away," Cooper said. Maybe he should gasp for air more often. Tebow drew enough attention from the defense to open up lanes for others. When defenders ran to him on a thirdand-5, he flipped a shovel pass to tight end Aaron Hernandez for a 6-yard gain. Two plays later, Tebow drew the same attention on a run to his left, and when he pitched to running back Jeff Demps, there was nobody left to keep the speedster from the end zone. That score was UF's first of the second half, putting the Gators ahead 24-20. When they got the ball back a few minutes later with their lead intact, words weren't necessary. "He doesn't have to say anything," receiver David Nelson said. "He has this quiet confidence and this aura about him where you know that he's going to lead you to victory. When he steps in that huddle, everybody respects him and trusts him; so when he looks you in the eye, you know it's time to go to work." Now Tebow will have a chance to round out his legacy in the BCS Championship Game, and there's no reason to think he won't be the difference in that contest as well. V Harrison Diamond / Alligator Staff UF wide receiver David Nelson runs after a reception in the Gators' 31-20 win against Alabama in the 2008 SEC Championship Game in the Georgia Dome on Saturday. UF gives up just 4.1 yards per rush SEC, from page 16 With the emergence of other receivers such as Riley Cooper and David Nelson, the potential return of Percy Harvin in the title game is going to make Oklahoma quiver while watching tape. "We didn't want to come out here today and risk anything serious," Harvin said. "So I'll be ready for the National Championship Game." When offensive linemen Carl Johnson and Marcus Gilbert chest-bumped each other, you could almost see the Gators' past opponents squashed in the middle. Now nobody is standing between them and a trip to the national championship. "If we don't prepare the right way and we make mistakes and we play without our energy and our passion, they can beat us then," middle linebacker Brandon Spikes said. "If we come out and hitting all our keys and playing with a lot of passion, they can't beat us." That's something Alabama coach Nick Saban found out the hard way. The Crimson Tide ran the ball well, totaling 136 yards on the ground, but UF's depleted defensive line rarely had a total breakdown. UF gave up just 4.1 yards per rush. When you're going against UF's offense, however, you have to run the ball .better than that to control the clock and keep the ball out of the Gators' hands. "Man, we had them covered about as well as you can cover them," said Saban, referring to UF's fourth-quarter drives. "That ball is in a small space that tlf' made good catches on." Now the Gators are one game away from their secondnational title in three years. T They got one more game to go," said former UF quarterback La Chris Leak, who was the starting signal-caller on the 2006 title team. For Meyer, who was hired four years ago, this is just another chapter in what's becoming a novel of achievements. "This will go down as one of the great wins in Florida football history," Meyer said. just wait until January. Meyer might have to say those words again.

1l ALLIGATOR .MONDAY, DECEMBER 8, 2008 UF advances to Round of 16 after weekend sweeps 0 THE GATORS WILL FACE NO. 2 STANFORD ON FRIDAY. By KYLE MAISTRI Alligator Writer kmaistri@alligator.org For weeks, UF coach Mary Wise has paid lip service to the remarkable improvement of her team during the last three months, but now-she has something tangible to measure it by. On Sept. 13, Colorado State sent UF home from its two-game road trip on the wrong end of a sweep. It was the first time out of Florida for the Gators' six true freshmen, and I 1 looked like a team depending on a large contingent of first-year talent. Saturday night, the Gators (27-3) got a chance to prove how far they have come when they squared off with the Rams (23-7) in the second round of the NCAA Tou'rnament. UF returned the favor, sweeping (25-21, 25-17, 25-23) Colorado State in the O'Connell Center in front of a modest crowd of fans that wasn't busy celebrating the UF football team's win in the Southeastern Conference Championship Game. The Gators also swept Florida A&M in the opening round. UF advances to regional play, which is held in Fort Collins, Colo., for the 17th time in Wise's 18 years as coach. The No. 11 Gators will take on No. 2 Stanford on Friday in the regional semifinals and will take on No. 6 Hawaii or No. 10 Purdue if they advance. "They're a young team, but I think they played with a great deal more maturity tonight than they did when they were at our place," Colorado State coach Tom Hilbert said. The biggest surprise of the night wasn't that UF found a way to top Colorado State, it was the way the Gators defeated the Rams. UF out-blocked Colorado State nine to five after being out-blocked in the first meeting 12 to two. "I don't know which stat is more surprising, the fact that we had nine blocks or the fact that they had only five," Wise said. "Both are pretty amazing." In addition to the dominance at the net, the Gators sided out extremely well Ward and didn't allow the Rams to run points in the serve game. Colorado State aided UF's sideout success by recording 12 service errors and just two aces. By comparison, the Gators committed only three errors against four aces. As they have all season, UF's freshman class had a huge impact on the outcome. Setter Kelly Murphy and outside hitter Colleen Ward showed just how far they have come as a unit. "I know we always talk about having a young team, because we are a young team, but I don't even think of them as freshmen anymore," senior middle blocker Kelsey Bowers said. "They're so mature now, and it's great playing with them, they're right on pace with everyone else." Ward logged seven kills on a team-high .429 hitting percentage and added six digs on defense. "We tried to pick on her a little bit, and it didn't work out very well," Hilbert said. Murphy put down eight kills on a .353 hitting percentage, dished out 13 assists and dug out five balls in her usual well-rounded performance. "That's the best recruiting class in the United States," Hilbert said. "We know all those players. We did not underestimate Florida. We know they're good."

MONDAY, DECEMBER 8, 2008 E ALLIGATOR, 19 UF FOOTBALL Defense steps up in fourth quarter to stop Alabama By EVAN DREXLER Alligator Staff Writer edrexler@a1ligator.org ATLANTA, -Joe Haden thought his ankle was ruined. UF's cornerback was squirming in pain midway through the second quarter on the Georgia Dome turf, teammates crowding around him to see if he was OK. No. 1 UF's entire defense was hurting at that point in the game, as then-No. 1 Alabama was racking up rushing yards at will behind running back Glen Coffee. But Haden got back up. He tested his ankle on the sideline, ran a few sprints and when the trainers asked if he could continue, he answered definitively. "I was like, 'Yeah, I can go,"' Haden said. "I didn't know if I was gonna get out of this (without) my ankle having to get cut off." Nothing that dramatic had to happen. Haden recovered in time to break up a pass and make a tackle on Alabama's next drive. "Iwas going to get hurt even worse if I was thinking about it," Haden said. "I just had to go out there and just act like I was healthy." The UF defense recovered, too, in time to stonewall Alabama's running backs. Coffee, who had dominated up the middle and collected 110 yards in the first three quarters, finished the game with 112 and couldn't add to Alabama's final tally of 20 points. "Twenty points against that outfit?" coach Urban Meyer said. "We'll take that and go." And even when the Crimson Tide passing game tried to get things going late, the Gators' decimated defensive line -down to just four healthy tackles -had an answer. Alabama quarterback John Parker Wilson completed just a single pass for 10 yards in the game's final frame, and the Tide ran just seven plays. Defensive end Carlos Dunlap laughed when he recalled how crazy he made Wilson in the final minutes. "I knew I had to get back and get in his face, otherwise he would make the plays," Dunlap said. "I figured I had to make the play first." Defensive tackle Brandon Antwine, who tore his ACL against FSU on Nov. 29, .was standing on the sidelines with "SEC 2008" shaved into his head. After the game, he leaned on crutches, rolling down his face. "It's family. effort," Antwine said. "I wouldn't say team effort. We're a family, man." In Alabama's final drive, UF defensive end Jermaine Harrison Diamond/ Alligator staff UF sophomore cornerback Joe Haden runs after -intercepting a pass from Alabama quarterback John Parker Wilson in the fourth quarter of the Gators' 31-20 win against the Crimson Tide. Cunningham put pressure on Wilson, causing him to heave up a desperation pass. On the other end of that throw? Haden and his seemingly fine ankle. "That's just how he's been preparing all year," Dunlap said. "He's been practicing all summer and getting everything ready and being one of the best lockdown corners in the nation." UF pays back N.C. State 0 THE GATORS HAVE WON THEIR LAST EIGHT GAMES. By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC Alligator Writer cyazbec@asligator.org For a team looking to avenge its season-ending blowout loss at North Carolina State last season, UF was led by seniors and sparked by newcomers to help it seek revenge Sunday. UF (8-1) returned to Raleigh, N.C., more than eight months after an 8055 pounding, and led wire-to-wire in a 66-61 victory, thanks to the help of seniors Marshae Dotson and Sha Brooks. After Dotson struggled against the Wolfpack in March, scoring just 6 points, she added 13 points and nine rebounds this time around, including a key shot late in the game. "My hat goes off to Marshae because she was 6 of 9 tonight, and I feel like she's just getting her head beat in every time that she is in the paint UF coach Amanda Butler said. "She gets no calls. It's kind of like Shaquille O'Neal. It seems like she gets fouled on every play, and she still keeps battling, has done a great job of maintaining her composure, despite all that contact." Meanwhile, Brooks, starting her 100th consecutive game, single-handedly iced the game from the freethrow line, tallying 9 of her 15 points from the charity stripe. Junior transfer guard Steffi Sorensen and freshman guard Trumae Lucas provided the spark the Gators needed in the second half, hitting big shots at the right time to help extend UF's lead late in the game. When North Carolina State seemed to be recapturing momentum nearing the five-minute mark, Sorensen nailed a three to put the Gators up 57-46 and cease any hope the Wolfpack had left. "That's players making plays," Butler said of Dotson's and Sorensen's clutch shots. "That's not coaches drawing up plays or anything like that." Lucas, who had friends and family from her hometown of Greensboro, N.C., in attendance, had her biggest game to date, adding 9 points. UF has now won eight in a row, including five away from home. "It's going to be important for us to maintain our intensity," Butler said. "When you win a few ballgames in a row, you maybe start thinking about how good you are. So it's going to be important for us to keep pushing and being demanding." A radio broadcast contributed to this report. Gators lose to 'Noles again By MIKE DIFERDINANDO Alligator Staff Writer ndiferdinando@alligator.org TALLAHASSEE -On a night when the Seminoles student section taunted Nick Calathes with poker chips and gambling references, the last card fell in favor of FSU. With the Gators down by 2 and the clock slipping under five seconds, Dan Werner took a cross-court pass from Calathes and put up a prayer. But Lady Luck was still in Atlanta. Werner sent the ball off the front iron, and as it fell to the floor, garnet and gold confetti floated alongside it. "It felt good," Werner said of his shot. "I thought it was in." The Seminoles (8-1) ran their winning streak against rival UF (6-2) to three in a row Sunday night with a 57-55 win in Tallahassee. After trailing 39-30 with just less than 13 minutes left in the second half, the Gators rallied back to tie the game at 42 inside of eight minutes. Calathes, who was investigated several weeks ago for running up a significant debt playing online poker, sparked the run with a step-back three and closed the gap with an alley-oop to Alex Tyus. The two sides would go on to trade baskets down the stretch until FSU's Ryan Reid drilled a turn-around jump shot in the face of Werner (10 points) with 33 seconds left to put the Seminoles up 54-51. "Just because they beat us two times in a row didn't mean they were going to beat us again," Werner said. "It was a different year and a different team. But they did. Do they have our number? I don't know." The Gators struggled to contain the towering Seminoles frontcourt. Reid (13 points) and 7-foot-i center Solomon Alabi (11 points) outmuscled Werner and Tyus for most of the night. In the face of constant antagonism from the rowdy FSU crowd, Calathes nearly willed UF to victory. The sophomore scored Men's 16 points and dished out Basketball six assists amid chants of "Full Tilt Poker.com" and "You owe me 600 bucks." "I thought we got the shots that we wanted. We just didn't knock them down," Calathes said. "I'd trust Dan to take that shot any day." Donovan chose to play freshman Ray Shipman and not senior Walter Hodge in the game's waning minutes. While Hodge, who hit a game winning 3-point shot against Washington earlier this season, watched from the bench, Shipman (6 points) scrapped his way to several critical rebounds in the final seconds. "At the time, I thought we needed a little more size," Donovan said. "Ray gave us some really good minutes." -k _V
