SUPERMAN RETURNS

Tebow delays jump to

NFL to stay for 4th year

By MIKE McCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alligator.org

Tim Tebow has never been one to disappoint UF fans, so
why start now?
The quarterback gave those in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium
for the Gators' national championship celebration the news
they had shown up hoping to hear: He will return to play his
senior season instead of entering the NFL Draft.
Tebow was brought on stage by former UF signal callers
Danny Wuerffel and Chris Leak for winning the Offensive
MVP award in the BCS Championship, and Wuerffel whipped
the crowd of 42,000 into a frenzy by pointing out that Tebow
still hadn't won a title as a senior like he and Leak had.
But amid chants of "One more year!" from the stands,
Tebow turned to walk offstage after thanking his teammates,
coach Urban Meyer and The Gator Nation for their support.
Before he reached the edge, he turned around and deliv-
ered the line UF fans had waited all afternoon for.
"Oh, and by the way, one more thing," Tebow said. "Let's
do it again I'm coming back."
Just like that, a celebration of UF's 2008 title complete
with the return of several former players and the unveiling
of signs commemorating the season in the south end zone
morphed into an early party for the 2009 championship the Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff
SEE TEBOW, PAGE 16 "Oh, and by the way, one more thing. Let's do it again I'm coming back," says UF quarterback Tim Tebow on the
stage at the end of the celebration at The Swamp in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium on Sunday afternoon.


BCS empties offices

It turns out students who skipped
class on Friday after celebrating the
football team's defeat of the Oklahoma
Sooners the night before weren't alone.
Administrators took the day off too.
A survey of UF's top administrators
beginning at 9 a.m. Friday revealed that
many of them were away.
UF Provost Joe Glover, who sent a
memo to administrators in December
asking them to remind faculty and
staff not to cancel classes because of
the game, left for Miami Tuesday after-


noon and was out the rest of the week,
according to his office.
"I combined attendance at the

to a friend I haven't
seen in a decade," he
wrote in an e-mail.
"I will also point
out that even though
I was traveling and
technically on leave
Glover I continued to deal
with e-mails, phone
calls and other university business," he
wrote.

Wins spike applicant pool


* BUDGET CUTS, ENROLLMENT
PLANS MAY HAMPER ADMISSIONS.

By LAUREN BAKER
Alligator Staff Writer
Ibaker@alligator.org

UF admissions can expect to snag some
more applicants in the coming year, if past
championships are any indication.
The university has received a marginal
increase in student applications follow-
ing past national championships, said UF
spokeswoman Janine Sikes.
"Overall, you get a little bit more inter-
est," Sikes said. "It's hard to tell what is hav-
ing an impact at the moment because we've
had several national championships in a
row."
When it comes to fluctuations in UF's


applicant pool, Sikes said there are many
other factors at play, citing causes such as
the current economy and the pull of in-state
tuition.
There was a slight increase during the
fall admissions period following the 1996
championship season compared to the prior
year an increase of 597
U F applications, according to
Academics records from UF's Office
of Institutional Planning
and Research.
Following the football and basketball
championships in 2006, 4,872 more applica-
tions were received in 2007 compared to the
previous fall term, according to the records.
However, given looming budget cuts and
UF's current plan to reduce enrollment by
1,000 students each year for the next four

Authorities search for heavyset ninja
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) -A ninja is lurking in the shad-
ows of Palm Beach County, but apparently he's more like Chris Farley
in "Beverly Hills Ninja" than Liam Neeson in "Batman Begins."
The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office says a heavyset man with
a visible potbelly unsuccessfully tried to steal two different ATMs
over the past two weeks. Security video from the ATMs showed the
unidentified man dressed in a black ninja outfit with a hood that
showed only his eyes.
Authorities say the first attempt was made at a bank on Dec.
29, and another attempt was made at a Walgreens on Tuesday.
Authorities did not say how the man tried to steal the machines.

Celebration honors team


By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer
Three days after the Gators' victory over the
Oklahoma Sooners in Miami, the party was still
on back home.
More than 40,000 Gator fans gathered in Ben
Hill Griffin Stadium Sunday to celebrate the UF
football team's third national championship.
Fans of all ages came dressed in orange and
blue to show their Gator pride.
Before the event, fans clapped and cheered
as they watched replays of Thursday night's
game.
When the team rushed the field, fans jumped
to their feet and roared.
"This team will go down as one of the great-
est football teams in history," UF coach Urban
Meyer said at the start of the afternoon's cel-
ebration.
Later, Meyer called the team's senior players
to the stage for recognition.
Former UF quarterbacks Danny Wuerffel
and Chris Leak then carried the national cham-
pionship trophy onto the field, handing the crys-
tal football to Tim Tebow while the "Superman"
theme song played in the background.
Elizabeth Navarro, a UF sophomore who
attended the game, said the crowd, though


smaller than Miami's, was just as excited. The
fans broke into chants of "one more year" when
star players Tebow and Percy Harvin took the
stage.
When Tebow announced he will be leading
the Gators next season, the roar of the crowd be-
came deafening.
"This team will go down as one
of the greatest football teams in
history."
Urban Meyer
UF football coach

At the end of the rally the team made its way
to the north end zone to join in singing UF's
alma mater.
Fans poured out of The Swamp in an orange-
and-blue stream as they made their way down
University Avenue.
Daniel Hornick, a UF accounting junior who
was here for the last football national champion-
ship, remembers the enthusiasm of the fans two
years ago and was not disappointed by their re-
actions this year.
"I was here to see the fans in 2006, and I ex-
pected nothing less from these fans," he said.

UF ACADEMICS

Post-BCS tours not all about sports


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Writer

It wasn't until Friday morning when
she was celebrating with her friends on
University Avenue that Carolyn Martin re-
alized she would be giving the first campus
tour after the championship.
"I'm like, 'Guys, I gotta be outta here
soon 'cause I have a tour bright and early
in the morning,'" Martin said.
And even though you might think the


first tour after a national championship
would be the easiest one of the year, the po-
litical science senior said she was nervous
that students would ask more questions
about football than academics.
She said she got questions like, "Do you
see the football players? Do you have any
of their signatures? Do you know anyone
that dates them? Are they cute?"
She even got a few questions about how
to get on the football team, she said.
"Ok well, you know, I'll give you the


number for the UAA and you can talk to
them about that," she said she told the stu-
dents.
Jeff Edwards, a senior at St. Lucie West
Centennial High School, who watched the
entire game and woke up at 4 a.m. to get
to UF on time for the 9 a.m. tour, said the
championship would not affect his choice
of college too much.
"If they had lost last night, I wouldn't
have been like, nope, not coming to
Florida," he said. "But it doesn't hurt."


Some administrators didn't skip work for game


ABSENTEES, from page 1

ed the game and took a vacation day Friday,
said UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes.
Machen declined to comment on the
reason for his absence in an e-mail.
Other administrators who attended
the game and were out Friday include
Vice President of Student Affairs Patricia
Telles-Irvin, who left for Miami Tuesday
afternoon, according to her office, and
Vice President of University Relations Jane
Adams, according to Sikes.
Administrators who came in late or
worked a full day Friday include Chief
Financial Officer Matt Fajack, who wrote
in an e-mail that he took the morning off
but worked the afternoon. According to
his office, he attended the game. Senior
Vice President for Administration Kyle


Cavanaugh and UF's Senior Vice President
for Health Affairs Doug Barrett worked a
full day and did not attend the game, ac-
cording to their office. Interim Dean of
Students Paige Crandall said she worked
a full day and
U F watched the game
Administration with students at
the Stephen C.
O'Connell Center.
Although many administrators were
in Miami for the game, Sikes wrote in an
e-mail that they were still at work. Many
of them met with alumni and other poten-
tial donors, which "is even more important
now during our current economic crisis as
state funds dwindle," she wrote.
She also wrote that UF was expected to
send a delegation of officials to participate
in BCS National Championship events.


As for UF's policy toward student atten-
dance on Friday, she said in an interview
that UF ultimately left it up to faculty.
"The University of Florida itself does
not enforce what happens in each and ev-
ery classroom," she said.
Some students expressed disappoint-
ment that UF would encourage faculty not
to cancel classes Friday while many top ad-
ministrators took the day off.
"It's very hypocritical," said Gaurav
Saxena, a UF business administration se-
nior who attended the game. "If the faculty
and the administration are going to say one
thing, then they should live up to it also."
Joel Birlingmayer, a UF chemical engi-
neering freshman, disagreed.
"If they have vacation days, they can use
them during the game," he said. "That's
probably when I would use them."

Editorial

Bueller?

Offices so empty you

could hear a mouse fart
The Gators took home the championship, Superman will
return to Gainesville and the Alligator Editorial Board
rocked "I heart Bernie" T-shirts at work Sunday night.
Well, not exactly.
As we gleefully marched to class Friday morning some
of us a little more greasy than others we couldn't help but
think, if just for a second, that maybe, just maybe, Bemie was
right.
Whoa, did we really just write that?
Apparently, we had forgotten the wonderful afterglow that
spreads itself around a college campus in the wake of winning
a national championship: Hangovers mysteriously disap-
peared, less-than-riveting courses suddenly held our attention
and even the most irascible of professors managed to crack a
smile for once.
Maybe having to drag our butts to class the day after the
big game wasn't such as a terrible ordeal after all.
If, for a glorious moment, the former misgivings of our
typically humdrum existence gave way to a Utopian paradise.
Until, that is, we discovered that a certain key demographic
of campus happened to disregard its academic obligations to
The Gator Nation.
Nothing like throwing caution into the wind, Bemie.
The Editorial Board will save you the trouble of having to
scour over an ever-growing laundry list of culprits who bailed
on work Friday, but let's just say UF heavyweights such as
Machen and Provost Joe Glover came to the conclusion that
they were too cool for school.
We can only imagine these two tough guys attempting
to don an outfit akin to their schoolboy mischief: skinny leg
jeans, a white T-shirt and leather jacket. Wannabe rebels with-
out a cause hoping to conjure imagery of Arthur Fonzarelli
(who?) as they took the mean streets of South Beach by storm.
Thank goodness for photo sharing! The Editorial Board
rests assured it won't be long before someone stumbles upon
Glover's Flickr account and finds the infamous photo album.
Hey Bemie, Senior Vice President for Administration Kyle
Cavanaugh made it to work on time, not to mention, along
with a few other stalwarts. No doubt they did a double-take at
their alarms come 6 a.m. and probably mainlined a couple of
Red Bulls, but hey, there's a university to run.
Cavanaugh and Crandall deserve a hearty pat on the back
for their actions unless they simply missed the memo where
UF brass were urged to stress the necessity for students to at-
tend class, while secretly administrators took a "vacation day"
on Friday.
Somebody better call Vogue; apparently "flip-flopping" is
this season's new black.
The Editorial Board can't blame Machen, Glover and pals
for their desire to stick around Miami for an extra day or two.
Taking a quick dip in Lake Wauburg tends to lose a little some-
thing when your constantly peering over your shoulder for
real life Alberts and Albertas. And something tells us that a
slice or two at Satchel's Pizza isn't exactly like feasting on the
salt-roasted porterhouse at Table 8.
It's far too early in the semester for the administration and
student body to nearly come to fisticuffs, so let the Editorial
Board offer a championship manifesto of sorts to remedy the
situation.
Simply put, if we have to attend class the day after a cham-
pionship game, then the administration should be present on
campus as well. If "Team Machen" wants to take a breather
after UF reaffirms its standing atop the sports world, great.
They just better expect to find the student body to follow suit.
And who said Rome wasn't built in a day?

week ago, I saw three typical Gainesville hip-
pies waving a banner comparing Gaza to the
Warsaw ghetto of Nazi-occupied Poland.
Seriously?
It is sad to see the Gaza conflict spread to
the UF campus. It is even sadder to see bla-
tant ignorance on both sides, ranging from
Facebook statuses and casual conversations
at the Hub to erroneous street demonstra-
tions.
Wherever I go, it pains me to see not ac-
tual hatred but lack of understanding.
As an Israeli, I've had to reluctantly argue
my way through the past two weeks, mostly
in vain. The great intellectual community of
Titletown is deader than Vanilla Ice's rap-
ping career.
I was inclined to write a letter consisting
of facts, history and analysis of the situation
in Israel, but it is obvious that these entreat-
ies of reason will most likely fall on already-
decided deaf ears.
So, my dear Gainesville pseudo-intellec-
tuals, next time you think it is "hip" to talk
about Palestinian suffering at a house party


or debate the merits of Soviet-era commu-
nism, do us all a favor and don't.
Instead, do yourself one by actually read-
ing beyond TV headlines and body counts.
Did you know there's an ongoing civil
war in Sri Lanka? What about Asian human
trafficking? And who here still remembers
Darfur?
The founders of this country, ironically,
lost their lives so we could have freedom of
information. I hope everyone takes a step
back and realizes that knowledge and un-
derstanding, not blame, are the key.

Gators earned BCS title
As a University of Georgia graduate and
devoted Bulldog fan, you may find it hard to
believe that I was actually rooting for Florida
to win the BCS football national champion-
ship.
I hold no ill will against the University of
Oklahoma or any other team for that mat-
ter. I am a Bulldog fan first and an SEC fan


second.
Congratulations, University of Florida!
Your championship is well deserved. All
SEC fans were Florida Gators fans on Jan. 8,
2009!

BCS conferences need realignment
It has recently come to my attention that
there are some in the media who do not be-
lieve Florida should be crowned the BCS
National Champion.
Some say Utah is more deserving, while
others mention USC. I would like to point
out that in the Sagarin ratings in USA Today,
Florida ranked No. 4 in strength of schedule,
while Utah came in at a dismal No. 56.
Utah had a chance to equalize its low
conference schedule by adding top noncon-
ference opponents.
However, Michigan, Utah State, Oregon
State and Weber State were all unranked at
kickoff. Utah beat six bowl teams only
three ranked. Florida beat 10 bowl teams, six


of them ranked.
As for USC, I find it to be hypocritical for
complaining when it is its own conference,
the Pacific-10, that has been one of the big-
gest hinderances toward establishing a play-
off system.
The Pac-10 and the Big Ten have insisted
on preserving the BCS in order to protect
their financially secured investments in the
Rose Bowl.
Pac-10 Commissioner Tom Hansen has
even threatened to leave the BCS should a
plus-1 system be implemented.
Therefore, I call for a conference realign-
ment. The Pac-10 should add Boise State and
Utah, split into two divisions and establish a
conference championship.
The Big 10 should follow suit by adding
Notre Dame and splitting into two divi-
sions.
Unfortunately, the Pac-10 and the Big 10
have no interest in making financial sacrific-
es in order to advance the game. The situa-
tion may need the arbitration of a third party
- President-elect Obama, take note.

MEN'S BASKETBALL

Frontcourt woes


evident in win

By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@a ligator org

The UF frontcourt has been questioned all season.
Saturday, it couldn't find an answer.
Despite being outrebounded by 24, UF (14-2, 1-0
Southeastern Conference) held on to beat Mississippi 78-
68 on the opening night of SEC play.
"It hurts me a lot," forward Dan Werner said. "I know
we can rebound, but for some reason we just couldn't do
it."
The Rebels (9-6, 0-1 SEC) came into the game as the
conference's worst rebounding team and were the only
school to have a negative rebounding margin.
"I don't know how competitive we are," UF coach
Billy Donovan said.
"It was like the possession didn't start until they shot
the ball."
The Gators finished the game with only four offensive
boards.
UF started fast, shooting 62 percent from the field in
the first half and taking a 14-point lead into halftime.
But the well dried up in the second, and UF allowed
Mississippi to play their way back into the game.
The Gators shot only 32 percent in the second half, and
with just over two minutes to play, their lead had fallen
to 6 points.
"I thought we got open shots, but we just weren't
knocking them down," guard Nick Calathes said. "I think
that we should have probably gone inside more."
Calathes led UF in points (19) and rebounds (seven).
"It's always a concern for me when our leading re-
bounder is our point guard," Donovan said. Sarah Hsu/ Alligator Staff
Senior Walter Hodge chipped in with 16 points and UF forward Dan Werner attempts to steal the ball during UF's 78-68

TE coach follows Mullen to Mississippi St.


* BOSTON COLLEGE MAY WANT
STEVE ADDAZIO AS ITS COACH.

By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Staff Writer
edrexler@alligator.org

After celebrating his second national
championship in three years in a ceremony
Sunday afternoon, UF coach Urban Meyer
announced he will be losing a member of
his staff and could be in danger of losing
another.
Tight ends coach John Hevesy is joining
Dan Mullen's staff at Mississippi State as
quarterbacks coach.
"He's been promoted and he's going
to have a title at Mississippi State," Meyer
said. "We've been together eight years.


He's a great coach, great friend, great per-
son, great father, great husband."
Hevesy spent time as UF's offensive line
coach and was with Meyer in Utah and at
Bowling Green, also coaching offensive
linemen and tight ends.
Reports also have
new offensive coordina-
tor Steve Addazio being
chased by Boston College
for the Eagles' head coach-
-- ing vacancy.
"Boston College, I think
they might request permission to talk to
Steve," Meyer said. "I don't know much
more than that."
Addazio, who was named Mullen's
replacement as offensive coordinator on
Dec. 27, was not at Sunday's celebration
because he was in the hospital with a knee


infection.
Addazio had already interviewed to be-
come the head coach at Syracuse and Yale
as those positions became open.
"Obviously, Steve's a great coach,"
Meyer said.
"(Boston College) should ask for per-
mission to talk to him."
Also absent from the event was redshirt
senior tight end Cornelius Ingram and ju-
nior linebacker Brandon Spikes.
Redshirt freshman running back Chris
Rainey hobbled onto the field wearing a
protective boot on his right foot. Meyer
said Rainey has an ankle sprain and that
his injury is not serious.
On stage at the celebration, Meyer -
like everyone else who spoke praised
his team's efforts this season and said how
proud he was of their accomplishment.

BCS Championship celebration.
So UF just slapped the sign up
above the rest, where it blocks the
first few rows of the upper deck,
and a reorganization is no doubt in
the works.
But when quarterback Tim
Tebow announced he would return
for his senior season shortly after
the sign was unveiled, he might as
well have said, "Save a place for
the 2009 banners, too."
The Gators will return most of
their playmakers from a squad that
finished the year ranked fourth in
the nation in scoring offense and
defense this season.
The entire secondary, plus in-
jured safety Dorian Munroe, will
be back to lead a defense that tied
for the most interceptions in col-
lege football (26).
The defensive line will re-
main intact as well, and with Dan
McCarney coaching the unit, it has
limitless potential especially
tackle Torrey Davis, who made
critical third- and fourth-down
stops in the second quarter against
Oklahoma near the goal line.
The only part of the defense that
might take a hit is the linebacking
corps, which could lose Brandon
Spikes if he declares for the NFL
Draft.
But even if Spikes leaves, Ryan

UF GYMNASTICS

Freshmen prove themselves in season-opening win


By EUGENIO TORRENS
Alligator Writer

There wasn't nearly as much on
the line in Friday's gymnastics meet
against Oklahoma as there was in
the football team's contest against
the same school, but the end result
proved to be no different.
UF wins.
The Gators beat the Sooners for
the second night in a row dif-
ferent sport, different venue, but in
similar fashion.
The Gators won comfortably
196.5-195.075. It was the fourth-


highest season-opening score in
school history.
On a night when four freshmen
- a third of the team debuted in
their first college meet, inexperience
hardly seemed to matter.
"It was amazing," said freshman
Amy Ferguson, who scored a 9.75
on her floor exercise.
"Words can't even describe the
feeling I had. I had so much adrena-
line, it was awesome."
The team admitted it was fueled
by the BCS National Championship
Game win Thursday night.
"Of course you're going to feed


off of it," said junior Melanie Sinclair.
"You come in with a positive atti-
tude, thinking that (the Sooners are)
a little bit doubtful
because they've
lost something al-
ready, so you feed
off of it."
Sinclair, an
All-American,
won the first
Sinclair two events of the
meet: the vault
and uneven bars. She added an all-
around title with a score of 39.425.
The other heavy hitters on the


team, Corey Hartung, Amanda
Castillo and Maranda Smith, also
contributed heavily to the outcome.
Hartung and Smith turned in
9.9s on floor, cementing a Gators
win. Castillo turned in another 9.9
for UF on balance beam.
"We had some high and we had
some lows, but it's the first meet of
the season, and I think we did really
well," Castillo said.
UF coach Rhonda Faehn thought
the start was a solid performance
that the team would use as a build-
ing block.
"It's always a big question mark,


the first meet of the year," Faehn
said.
"We have so many new faces. It's
a very young team. It's really differ-
ent from what we had in the past
with so many freshmen. All in all, I
think it's a great start."
Sinclair said that despite the win,
there are always things to work on.
"The small details: handstands,
legs, pointed toes, landings, presen-
tations, smiling when you land,"
Sinclair said. "All the little tenths
that adds up, those are what's im-
portant."


UF's 15-game winning streak snapped by Auburn


* UF LOST FOR THE FIRST TIME IN
NEARLY TWO MONTHS.

By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Alligator Writer
cyazbec@alligatororg

Going on the road in the Southeastern
Conference is never easy, especially when
it's against the only unbeaten team in the
league.
UF (15-2, 1-1 SEC) found that out the hard
way in an 81-65 loss at No. 9 Auburn (17-0,
2-0 SEC) on Sunday.
The defeat ended UF's school-record 15-


game winning streak. The team had not lost
since Nov. 14.
The No. 18 Gators held their own against
the Tigers for the first 28 minutes, trailing by
just 5 with about 12 minutes remaining.
That was before Auburn capitalized on
two UF turnovers on back-to-back posses-
sions and expanded its lead to as much as
16.
"They just really took over the game, and
they did it defensively," UF coach Amanda
Butler said.
The Gators tried to scrap and claw their
way back late, but Auburn quelled UF's runs
with 3-point shots.


Offensive rebounds and 3-pointers kept
the Gators alive for much of the game before
Auburn took control.
Sha Brooks struggled shooting the ball af-
ter scoring a career-high 31 points in her last
game. She went just 3 of 18 from the field
and tallied 11 points.
Auburn's combination of DeWanna
Bonner and Sherell Hobbs was too much for
the Gators to handle. The pair scored 52 of
the Tigers' points.
Hobbs finished with 23 points, while
Bonner tallied 29.
MOSSOR OUT FOR SEASON: Junior guard
Jennifer Mossor, whose right ACL was torn


against Mississippi State on Thursday, is out
for the season.
Mossor's injury forced more minutes out
of guards Lonnika Thompson and Susan
Yenser.
Her absence also seemed to affect the
Gators' rotation and their perimeter scoring,
but Butler was not using it as an excuse.
As for the rebounding from the loss:
"There is nothing that can sharpen your
focus like disappointment," Butler said.
"And there is nothing that can make you
more hungry for the next game than when
you're coming off of a loss."
A radio broadcast contributed to this report.

MONDAY, JANUARY 12, 2009 U ALLIGATOR, 15


MIKE, from page 13

Stamper, Brandon Hicks, Dustin
Doe and A.J. Jones have already
proven themselves capable of car-
rying the torch.
So even if Spikes departs, expect
the 2009 UF defense to be even bet-
ter than this year's, and the offense
should remain explosive.
And even so, signs may be
pointing toward Spikes return-
ing. Stamper said Sunday that
Spikes told him after the BCS


Championship Game he planned
to stay, and Spikes has repeatedly
said Tebow's choice would play a
big role.
Not surprising from the guy
who met Tebow for the first time
on a recruiting visit at Alabama and
said he would sign with whichever
school the big lefty chose.
A chunk of the line is gradu-
ating, along with receiver Louis
Murphy and running back Kestahn
Moore, but the hardest loss to ab-
sorb would be that of junior Percy
Harvin.
Harvin said he was leaning to-


ward staying in Gainesville in a
television interview Sunday.
If he leaves, David Nelson,
Riley Cooper, Deonte Thompson
and Carl Moore would have a
lot of work to do, but they'd get
some help from running backs
Emmanuel Moody, Jeff Demps
and Chris Rainey, and coach Urban
Meyer seems to already have his
sights set on the next Harvin-like
athlete.
Andre Debose, one of the na-
tion's top high-school receiver
prospects with a knack for carry-
ing the ball, is committed to play at


UF, and he was serenaded by fans
during the basketball team's win
against Mississippi on Saturday.
And look at the schedule.
Charleston Southern, Troy and
Florida International are auto-
matic wins, and the Gators will
only face one difficult road game
(at LSU), while they get rebuild-
ing Tennessee and Florida State
squads at home.
The annual clash with Georgia
should be made easier by the
departure of quarterback Matt
Stafford and running back
Knowshon Moreno, meaning UF


has a manageable road to another
SEC title.
A win there all but guarantees a
spot in the national championship,
held at the Rose Bowl, and though
it would still take a few lucky
breaks and a healthy squad, the
Gators have a very realistic shot at
a national title repeat.
There's a dynasty brewing at
UF, and should the Gators plaster
more signs in The Swamp, their
success can be traced back to two
days: the day Tebow chose to play
for Florida, and they day he chose
to stay.


Donovan: It's not like we can pound the ball inside to anybody


M-HOOPS, from page 13


four steals.
The Gators struggled to shoot the ball
against the Rebels' zone defense in the sec-
ond, but Donovan said he felt his team's
best chance to win was with its outside
shooting.
"It's not like we can pound the ball in-
side to anybody," Donovan said.
Chandler Parsons echoed his coach's
sentiments.


"We're a shooting team," Parsons said.
"That's what we do."
With 30 seconds to go in the game, a
frustrated Donovan walked down to the
end of the bench and scolded the one player
who didn't even step on the floor against
the Rebels.
Vernon Macklin, the 6-foot-10,
240-pound Georgetown transfer who must
sit out this season because of transfer rules,
was as much to blame in Donovan's eyes
as anyone for the Gators' apparent lack of
toughness.


"I said, 'You know what part of the prob-
lem is?'" Donovan said. "'You don't put
those guys on their back
enough in practice and
you could, physically."'
Donovan admits
that while his team has
worked hard in practice
this season, a competitive
element is missing.
Donovan "I'd like to see more
physical altercations and banging (in prac-
tice)," Donovan said. "The problem is, when


you have two guys in there who you're try-
ing to create the physical altercation with,
and neither one will physically altercate,
it's hard to create a physical altercation."
UF transfer David Huertas played well
against his old team after airballing his first
shot 12 seconds into the contest.
He led the Rebels in scoring with 16
points.
Huertas was a member of UF's 2006 na-
tional championship team but transferred
to Mississippi after his freshman year due
to concerns over playing time.

QB's decision to stay in school gives him time to enjoy championship


TEBOW, from page 1

Gators will be favorites to land.
With at least 10 starters expected
back from a defense that allowed
fewer than 13 points per game and
Tebow returning to run one of the
nation's most dynamic offenses, UF
is likely to open the season ranked
No. 1.
But Tebow wants more than just
a third national title or a second
Heisman Trophy; he'll be chasing
perfection, the last unchecked box
on his college football to-do list.
"To have an undefeated season,
that's a goal. It's something they've
never done here at the University
of Florida," Tebow said, echoing his
comments after a loss to Mississippi
in September.
"I just love being here," he said.
"I love being a Gator. I feel loyal to
this place. I'm going to stick it out
and finish what I started here."
Tebow cited conversations with
NFL coaches and UF's hiring of
former Detroit Lions quarterbacks
coach Scott Loeffler as big reasons
for his return, while he added that
his projected place in the draft had
little impact.
But a jump start to a professional
career was still very enticing, as he
found sleep hard to come by while


wrestling with the decision.
"He texted me (Saturday) morn-
ing and said, 'Pray for me. I'm
about to make some life-changing
decisions,'" UF receiver David
Nelson said.
"When he sent me that, it kind
of hit me that he might be leaving. I
tried to give him his space and not
get involved, but he came up to me
before we went out there today and
said, 'Let's go get another one to-
gether,' and a weight just came off
my shoulders."
Tebow said he made his deci-
sion Saturday afternoon and that he
wanted to get it out of
the way early, rather
than wait until the
Jan. 15 deadline, so he
can relax and enjoy
the Gators' title win.
But his classmates, receiver Percy
Harvin and linebacker Brandon
Spikes, both potential first-round
draft picks, have yet to choose, al-
though Harvin may have tipped his
hand in a television interview after
the celebration.
"I don't know yet," Harvin said.
"I'm kind of leaning toward com-
ing back, but I haven't made that
decision. I'm going to sit down with
coach Meyer (on Monday)."
Spikes spent Sunday afternoon
