Expec actions



Boynton, Macklin help give Florida new identity


By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@allgator org


Nine of Billy Donovan's 13 players this sea-
son are holdovers from last year's squad, but
he might as well be coaching a new team.
Nick Calathes, Florida's leader on the court
and most productive player the last two years,
is gone. So is Walter Hodge, the last remain-
ing player on both of the Gators' back-to-back
national championship teams.
What's left is a mix of new names and fa-
miliar faces a team with a chance to estab-
lish its own identity and a desire to leave the
unmet expectations and disappointing finishes
behind them.
With an outlook as new as their talented
transfer center and heralded freshman guard,
the Gators are a far cry from the team that took
the floor in the O'Connell Center the past two
seasons.
"It's interesting because I feel like in a lot of
respects we do have somewhat of a new team,
although the players are somewhat similar."
Donovan said. "I feel different being around
this team and these guys right now than I did
last year."
Between the prominent additions of Ver-
non Macklin and Kenny Boynton, and the
benefits they will provide UF's veterans, the
Gators have transformed their lineup of out-
of-position players to a traditional, stereotypi-
cal starting five.
No longer carrying expectations of instant
success or an undeserved sense of entitlement,
this year's team has something to prove.
A new identity might be just what the
Gators need to get back on track and back
in the NCAA Tournament after dropping a


combined 23 games and missing consecutive
NCAA Tournaments for the first time since
Donovan's first two years at UF.
"I think the core of our guys have been
through it. We've been through the rough
times," junior forward Chandler Parsons said.
"We've been to the NIT two years in a row,
and obviously we don't want to go back to
that."
It remains to be seen whether the new-look
Florida basketball team will reach Donovan's
10th NCAA Tournament at UF or make its
third-straight NIT appearance. Regardless of
the destination, this year won't be the same as
the last two.

The Big Man
The ideal solution to the Gators' well-doc-
umented frontcourt issues may have been sit-
ting on the bench last year.
The 6-foot-l0,
240-pound Macklin,
who transferred to in a lot of respects we do
Florida after two alough e ay
years at Georgetown, al ly
has been hailed as the inside presence Billy
the team has missed since Marreese Speights
left UF early for the NBA. As a sophomore in
2007-08, Macklin averaged 3.4 points and 2.1
rebounds while playing only 12.8 minutes per
game in a crowded Hoyas frontcourt.
Caught between the departure of one natu-
ral center and the arrival of another, the Gators
struggled down low throughout the 2008-09
season. Alex Tyus, better suited to play pow-
er forward at 6-foot-8 and 220 pounds, was
forced to start at center and match up with
bigger, stronger opponents.
Tyus held his own in the post last year,


hi
r


averaging 12.5 points and 6.2 rebounds per
game, but the physical play of the Southeast-
ern Conference was too much for the out-of-
position forward to handle, as he averaged
fewer rebounds in conference games (5.5) than
Calathes (5.9) or Parsons (5.6). Donovan was
also forced to start the 6-foot-8, 230-pound
Dan Werner, a more natural small forward, at
the power forward spot.
With Macklin, Donovan can keep Tyus
and Wemer fresh, return some of his players
to their natural positions and count on a new
physical presence on defense.
"Vernon Macklin is just a monster down
there. He's something I have never played
with before in my life," Parsons said. "Never
played with a guy like him who can change
the game on the defensive end so much by
getting every rebound, by blocking every shot,
dunking everything. He's just an animal."
Macklin practiced

to NCAA
rules. He admitted he would not
have been much help last year given his unfa-
miliarity with the system and physical condi-
tioning, but that didn't make it easier to sit on
the sidelines.
"There was a time at practice last year when
I didn't have everything figured out," Macklin
said. "I was thinking about like, 'What am I
doing? This is tough. I'm sitting out a whole
year. I'm working for nothing.'
"But then when coach Donovan called me
out, I started working toward that, and I start-
ed seeing improvement from a lot of guys. So
I said, 'If I keep this up, we'll make a big im-


Florida freshman guard Kenny Boynton immediately steps in as one of the Gators' top scorers. Boynton was a McDonald's High School
All-American as well as the third-leading scorer in Florida high school history. Rivals.com ranked him the No. 12 overall recruit.

provement.'"
Given the way opponents dominated UF in
the post last year, the hype built up Macklin to
be more than just an incoming big man who
could fill a need. He became the light at the
end of the tunnel the Gators' eventual sav-
ior, a title he undeservedly received and is still
looking to shed.
"Coach Donovan helped me out a lot on
that. The media has put a lot as me being this
savior," Macklin said. "It has nothing to do
with me. ... It's the whole team."
But Macklin wasn't the only one who had
to deal with extreme expectations before tak-
ing the floor for Florida.

The Scorer
While Macklin was sitting on the Gators'
bench last year, the team's second supposed
savior was dominating defenses and breaking
high school scoring records in South Florida.
Boynton's reputation and list of accom-
plishments precedes him: a McDonald's All-
American, Rivals.com's No. 12 overall recruit
in the class of 2009, a Class 6A state champion,
a back-to-back AAU junior national champion
and the third-leading scorer in Florida high
school history.
Boynton's reputation as a score-first guard
led to the belief he would single-handedly
make up for the departure of Calathes and
Hodge. Those two comprised UF's starting
backcourt and accounted for a third of the
team's scoring last season.
Like Macklin, Boynton won't be able to
save the program on his own no matter how
many points he scores or how well he adapts
to all the roles he foresees himself playing.
"He's not a savior. He's one guy, and he's
a freshman," Donovan said. "He's going to be
a good player here and I have no doubts
about that but I think the expectation that
he's going to be this total impact player would
be totally unfair to him."
The hype only became more intense as
Boynton's Florida debut drew closer. He aver-
aged 33 points per game during his senior sea-
son to cap off his career at Plantation American
Heritage High, and his new teammates have
said he can get off any shot he wants one-on-
one.
But the expectations don't bother Boynton.
Far from it, actually.
"I want to live up to them, so I just keep
working so more people talk about me," Boyn-
ton said.
The 6-foot-2, 183-pound Boynton brings a
newfound confidence and swagger to a pro-
gram in need of both after two disappointing
seasons. But Donovanhasbeen most impressed
by Boynton's ability to put aside the numerous
accolades he received in high school and focus
on making himself and his new team better.
"Kenny's got unbelievable belief in himself,
which is great, but there is a level of humility,"
Donovan said. "For a kid as highly profiled as
him, he's really done a pretty good job of help-
ing create even more chemistry on our team."
Boynton knows his strength is putting
points on the board, but he hopes to immedi-
ately establish himself at Florida as being more
than just a scorer. He said he also wants to be
recognized as a defensive specialist, leader
and true point guard.
This year, Donovan may ask his new do-
everything guard to take on all of the above
assignments.
"If one day he wants me to go out and just
be a defensive guy, then that's what I'm gon-
na do," Boynton said. "If he wants me to be
a point guard this day, I'll do that. And if he


wants me to shoot the next day, that's what I'll
do."

The Attitude
Even with a more traditional roster and a
crop of talented new players, it's not entirely
personnel that makes this year's Florida team
different. It's also a top-down shift in philoso-
phy and mentality.
From Donovan to each of his players, the
Gators have taken into account what held
them back the last two years and focused on
rectifying those problems.
It started with a move Donovan and his
staff made before practice even started: creat-
ing a tougher nonconference schedule. With
matchups against Michigan State and Syra-
cuse before SEC play begins, Donovan will test
his new team early on.
The last two years, he attempted to ease
into the season a move that resulted in a
3-14 record against top-50 RPI teams and an
overconfident group of young players who
would face a rude awakening during the con-
ference slate.
The schedule also includes a game against
Xavier in the middle of SEC play.
With their coach's commitment to turning
around the program made clear by his offsea-
son statement, the burden of improvement
then fell to his veteran players. They had to
make strides in terms of leadership and com-
mitment to do their part.
"The last couple years, we were real imma-
ture, and that's the bottom line," Werner said.
"Being more mature is going to make it feel
like a new group."
Their developing maturity, along with the
threat of losing their jobs to new players, cre-
ated a competitive atmosphere that had been
absent the last two years, affecting the team's
younger players even as early as offseason
scrimmages.
"Even in the pick-ups, you see people are
more competitive," sophomore center Kenny
Kadji said. "People don't want to get punked
and stuff like that."
But the newfound effort wouldn't mean
quite as much had the Gators not gotten in bet-
ter shape during the offseason. Eight of UF's
11 losses last year came by six points or fewer,
and six were by four or fewer something
that motivated the team to improve its condi-
tioning and endurance.
"We've got a different feeling in the whole
gym. Everyone's working so hard," Parsons
said. "We've got conditioning tests. Every-
one's passing those when more than half our
team wasn't last year. We're coming in here
at 4 or 5 in the morning just working our tails
off."
Donovan said he struggled to get his team
to put forth enough effort in practice last sea-
son. Now that his players are at least physi-
cally capable of keeping up with what's asked
of them, he can finally focus on preparing his
team for each game and for a potential re-
turn to the national prominence the program
reached earlier under his watch.
"There are a lot of people who have a lot of
questions about this team and what they can
do and what they can become," Donovan said.
"The exciting and challenging part is dealing
with those things.
"There are some things I'm seeing that at
least make me feel like as a team we are mov-
ing in the right direction."
Whether the right direction leads the Gators
to another NIT or back to the NCAA Tourna-
ment, this year at the very least things
will be different.

Downtown festival to feature 250 artists


By MEG WAGNER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Downtown Gainesville is trading traffic
for pedestrians and paintings this weekend
for the 28th annual Downtown Festival and
Art Show.
Organizers expect about 100,000 people


to visit the outdoor art gallery over the
course of the festival, which will be held
Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5
p.m.
The festival will showcase the work of
about 250 artists, chosen from a pool of
more than 650 people.
"Gainesville is a culturally enriched com-


munity that embraces the arts," said Linda
Piper, events coordinator for the City of
Gainesville Department
Around of Parks, Recreation and
Gainesville Cultural Affairs. "There
is so much to see, I sug-
gest you plan to spend the whole day."
This year, Sunshine Artist Magazine


ranked the festival No. 27 on its list of the
nation's top 200 art shows. The list is com-
piled and ranked by artists, who vote on
which festivals are most profitable.
The downtown festival has been on the
list since 1996 and has risen in the rankings

0 HOLCOMB: TEXTING WHILE DRIVING
RIVALS DRUNKEN DRIVING.

Brooke Barber texts while driving.
"Why call when you can text?" she said. "Plus, if
you're on the phone, you can't listen to music."
But most Americans don't share her view.
Ninety-seven percent of Americans support a ban on
texting while driving, according to a recent New York
Times/CBS News poll.
STexting while driving distracts the driver because
concentration is on the conversation, and he or she can't
react quickly enough, UF Police Department Capt. Jeff
Holcomb said.
". Eighty percent also support a ban on talking on the
phone while driving, according to the poll.
Holcolmb feels testing is more dangerous than talking
on the phone, though he feels both are unsafe. A law ban-
ning the two would make the roads safer, he said.
Linda Crider, a bicycling and traffic safety expert at
UF, said she would also support a ban.
"You cannot depend on people to make good judg-

STUDENT LIFE

Students virtually plant, harvest crops on Facebook


By AMANDA MILLIGAN
Alligator Writer


When UF junior Gloria Tavarez
wakes up in the morning, she har-
vests her crops.
Knowing what to plant next in-
volves strategy. She considers how


long each crop will take to grow,
making sure they'll be ready to
harvest in between classes. During
these gaps in her schedule, she can
dash to a computer lab and log into
Facebook, home of FarmVille.
However, she makes sure the lab
isn't busy. She doesn't want to play


a game while there's a line of people
waiting it's kind of embarrassing,
she said.
"You have to make sure no one's
looking," she said.
But to Tavarez, it's worth it.
"It's kind of pathetic, but it's a lot
of fun," she said. "At first I thought


it was really boring, but then it got
addicting."
Tavarez said she logs in at least
three times a day to check Farm-
Ville, a Facebook application with
more than 63 million active monthly
users.
UF students like Tavarez are part


of this group, growing and harvest-
ing virtual crops while earning coins
and helping out neighboring farms.
She said it's a fun distraction and
a good form of procrastination.

LOS ANGELES (AP) A dog named
Titan lived up to his name Thursday
when he earned the title world's tallest
dog.
The 4-year-old white Great Dane
from San Diego is blind, deaf, epileptic
and undergoes acupuncture and chiro-
practic adjustments every three weeks,
owner Diana Taylor said.
"Titan is magical," she added. "He's
low-key, calm and has a wonderful de-


meanor about him. He gets along with
all dogs, even the tiny ones."
The massive canine is often mistaken
by young children for a horse or cow.
Titan's official height, as measured
by a veterinarian, is a hair over 3 feet
tall from floor to shoulder.
Titan weighs 190 pounds and doesn't
stand on his hind legs because it isn't
good for him. If he did, Taylor figures he
would stand 80 or 82 inches tall.

Foundation plans walk for
suicide awareness
Scott Sumrow was a Nation-
al Honor Society member who
dreamed of designing and build-
ing airplanes. He also suffered
from depression. Shortly after his
18th birthday in 2001, Scott took
his life.
Since Scott's passing, more
than 250,000 Americans have
taken their lives an average of
32,000 annually, according to the
American Foundation for Suicide
Prevention.
To reach out to survivors and
bring awareness to the commu-
nity, the foundation is hosting
the Out of the Darkness Commu-
nity Walk at Westside Park on
Saturday from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.
Registration begins at 8 a.m.
Jacksonville's fourth Out of
the Darkness walk was held on
Oct. 24, but Saturday's event is
Gainesville's first. Coordinators
expect 75 people to attend.
The 5K walk will raise aware-
ness about depression, mental
illness and the toll suicide takes
on our society, said Kathy Sum-
row, Scott's mother, Out of The
Darkness Walk chairwoman and
AFSP Florida First Coast Chapter
Board chairwoman.
Participants can walk in si-
lence, share memories of loved
ones or walk simply to remem-
ber, she said.
All proceeds will go to the
foundation for research, edu-
cational programs, community
outreach and survivor support.
"My favorite part has to be
the support those who have
lost someone to suicide feel and
share," Sumrow said. "There is
a special kinship at these events
between those who have been
brought together under such sad
and tragic circumstances."
Students enrolled in the Psy-
chology of Suicide class are help-
ing coordinate the event.
"Suicide isn't a subject you
can learn from a textbook," said
psychology senior Sarah Mead.
"There aren't really right an-
swers."

Expo to highlight
careers for women
UF Students in Free Enter-
prise is hosting a Women's
Career Expo today from 9 a.m.
to noon at the Center for Inno-
vation and Economic Develop-
ment at Santa Fe College.
The event consists of a panel
discussion, resume and inter-
viewing workshops and a ca-
reer fair for women looking to
re-enter the work force after a
prolonged absence.
Laura Bosco, one of the co-
ordinators of the event, said
she wanted to plan the event
after her mom went through
the process of finding a job.
"That was something that
I helped her with and saw
some of the problems she went
through," she said.
The expo is hosting organi-
zations that will give attendees
advice from dressing for suc-
cess to making transitions from
one job to another.
The participating organiza-
tions include FloridaWorks,
02B Kids!, the Gainesville Area
Women's Network, TempForce
of Gainesville and the Center
for Business and Entrepreneur
Incubator.
Each organization will have
a booth where participants can
stop by and get information on
things such as child care op-
tions, networking, and wom-
en's health and confidence.
Jenny Seltzer, another coor-
dinator for the event, said the
expo's purpose is to make these
organizations more accessible
to local women.

All of the items on sale are
handmade pieces created by club
members. The pieces include
cups, bowls and other various

H.O.T., which stands for
"hand-built or thrown" (differ-
ent pottery techniques) had a
make-a-thon to prepare for the
sale, said Jon Burns, a ceramics
graduate student and member of
H.O.T. Clay.
The club members met for
a few hours and made as many
pieces as they could.
There were about 500 pieces
displayed Tuesday, Burns said.
Prices range from $10 to $75,
on average.
The event is a way for the
club to not only raise money, but
to show off its members' work.
"We feel it's really important
the community knows what we

Local experts discuss climate change, clean energy


By BRANDON BRESLOW
Alligator Contributing Writer

One of UF's newest organiza-
tions welcomed students to dis-
cuss issues of clean energy, global
warming and carbon emissions
with four local experts Thursday.
"Clean Energy: When & How?"
was sponsored by The Dynamo, a
student-run group that encourag-
es its members to conduct policy


research and contribute to public
debates. More than 50 attended
the event in Pugh Hall.
Lance Legel, president of the
organization and moderator of the
discussion, said he chose the top-
ics of climate change and renew-
able energy for the panel to dis-
cuss because of their urgency and
broad appeal.
"Individuals can help and
communities can help, but these


problems are international," said
Harald W. Keg-
elmann, CEO of
Advanced Solar
Technologies
Inc.
Other mem-
bers of the panel
included Sanford
Berg Berg, director of
water studies for
UF's Public Utility Research Cen-


ter; Panos M. Pardalos, a UF dis-
tinguished professor of industrial
and systems engineering; and Sean
McLendon, sustainability program
manager for Alachua County.
The panel spent a majority of
the event discussing its own ideas
of how technology and different
levels of government can contrib-
ute to the solution of carbon emis-
sions and global warming.
Although their plans varied,


panel members agreed that the en-
tire planet will need to take part in
solving these problems.
"We have to roll up our sleeves,
and we have to participate,"
McLendon said. "We are citizens
that live in a democracy, and we
have the ability to change our fu-
ture."

Campaign reminds county workers of on-the-job texting ban


* COURTS DISCUSSING WHETHER
TEXTS ARE PUBLIC RECORD.

By CJ PRUNER
Alligator Writer

As Randall Reid and his wife were tour-
ing the Louvre Museum in Paris during a
vacation last summer, his eyes fixed upon a
classic statue depicting a man gazing into a
marble cell phone.


"Oh look, honey, he's texting," he joked
as his wife, Connie, snapped a photograph
of Reid, Alachua's county manager, striking
the same pose with his own cell phone.
Although it started off as a lighthearted
jab at antiquity, the picture has now become
the banner for a more serious message -
it's now being used in the city's campaign
against text messaging while on the job.
The phrase "Thou Shall Not Text," serves
as a reminder to all 900 city employees to
keep their fluttering fingers in check while


on the clock.
"I wanted to do something more than
just a morning e-mail," Reid said. "I have a
warped sense of humor."
According to Reid, the ban
Local is the city's way of leaning on
News the safe side while the Florida
Attorney General's Office and
the courts decide whether text messages
should be considered public record.
After consulting with the city attorney,
Reid believes that text messages should be


considered as such.
"It doesn't help if chief legal authorities
don't take a position," he said.
Although the message may appear daunt-
ing, Reid wants his employees to take an ac-
tive role in the campaign. He has opened up
the floor for employees to submit new ideas
for the poster's caption.
"We want to address this issue proactive-
ly," said Reid, who does not use text mes-
saging. "We go to great strides to be open
and transparent."

FESTIVAL, from page 1

over the past decade. This is the
third year in a row that it is in the
top 30.
"When we were in the top 80,
and the top 60, that was amazing.
Twenty-seven is a dream come
true," Piper said.
As it has grown in popularity,
the downtown festival has become
increasingly competitive.
"I've had to turn so many peo-
ple down. Everyone wants a piece
of the action," Piper said. "Fifteen
years ago there were 160 booth
spots and only 165 artists that ap-
plied."
Preference is given to local art-
ists, and during the selection pro-
cess, those from Florida are given
an extra point and Gainesville art-
ists are given two extra points.
[The festival] is a way to show-
case local art; that's the whole rea-
son why it began," Piper said.
Artists of all media will display
paintings, sculptures, ceramics,
jewelry, photography, woodwork
and other arts and crafts.
Visitors can also expect live
music and entertainment on three


stages, a hands-on activity center
where children can complete art
projects, 50 booths from nonprofit
organizations, a rock climbing
wall and plenty of food vendors.
Piper said the historic down-
"I've been to many art
shows in the state of Flori-
da, and what makes us so
unique is our venue."
Linda Piper

ment of Parks, Recreation and
Cultural Affairs

town setting is what makes the
event so special.
"I've been to many art shows
in the state of Florida, and what
makes us so unique is our venue,"
she said.
"The festival is so large that
it must be held when there's an
away Gator [football] game, or
there wouldn't be enough hotel
rooms," Piper said.

50 percent say texting, DUI

penalties should match


POLL, from page 1

Holcomb said that though
he doesn't think the punish-
ment for cell phone use should
be as bad as driving under
the influence, he does believe
texting rivals it in level of dan-
ger.
"While intoxicated, the
driver is at least trying to con-
centrate, whereas with texting,
driver's concentration is on the
phone, [and] both hands are
typically in use," he said.
Crider compared the texting
craze to the cultural addiction
of smoking in the past.
"We knew as a culture
smoking wasn't good for us,"


she said. "It was harmful to our
health and safety, yet every-
one did it, so we maintained it
as part of our way of life. We
know certain driving behav-
iors are unhealthy and unsafe,
yet everyone
National does it so we
News keep on."
Crider said
her motherhood and job teach-
ing college students has made
her aware of the tendency to
follow the pack, regardless
of whether young people see
their behavior as unsafe.
"Nothing-bad-will-hap-
pen-to-me syndrome pre-
vails," she said. "As parents
and teachers, we pray a lot."

FARMVILLE, from page 1

toral associate in educational technology, said Farm-
Ville's agrarian nature might have something to do
with its popularity.
He said the United States has its roots in farming,
which has the connotation of being something pure
and positive. FarmVille also has the feel of being
"green," he said, and its way of rewarding work with
coins can instill a sense of affirmation in the user.
"It affects us emotionally in a positive way," he
said. "It makes sense that it would be popular."
Sessums said online social gaming applications
like FarmVille take the place of games people played
as children, like kickball. Online gaming allows for
this kind of social play, but it also lets the player
switch roles or identities.
Tavarez said she wanted to live on a farm when


she was a kid, and with FarmVille, she's able to take
care of a farm of her own.
"It looks pretty, without the stink or the mess,"
she said.
While FarmVille involves a lot of features that are
similar to real farming, Michael Gunderson, an assis-
tant professor of food and resource economics, said
it's not totally accurate.
He said the main difference between the game
and real farming is biological processes don't occur
on a schedule.
"You don't just show up, and it's ready to go," he
said.
Despite the discrepancies, he likes the application.
He said people tend to think of agriculture as not re-
quiring much education or savvy.
"Real agriculture couldn't be further from [that],"
he said.

Editorial
his week the world celebrated momentous changes in
history, and America celebrated some changes of its
own. By contrast, things have been a little slow around
the Alligator; the most noteworthy thing to happen this week
is the mysterious disappearance of the friendly rats that live
in our walls (if you're reading this, we miss you). These
epic world events only make the mundane state of affairs in
Gainesville harder to bear. With that in mind, we are happy
to present you with a don't-let-the-small-town-blues-get-you-
down edition of...



Darts & Laurels

Because one day, we promise you'll graduate and move on
to the real world (well, most of you).
On Monday, somewhere in the real world, millions of peo-
ple marked the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall
with celebrations and dominoes. One thousand giant domi-
noes were placed over the former site of the wall to symbolize
its fall, and as we watched them topple we thought of only one
thing... Ronald Reagan descending from the clouds, hammer
in hand, destroying the Wall like an angry Thor. While George
H.W. Bush got to watch the fall from the Oval Office, we all
know who really brought these changes to Berlin, and that's
why we would like to give an even-better-than-the-Hulk-
smash LAUREL to Ronald Reagan for bringing freedom to
Germany, and the world, and the universe, forever.
In America this week, a momentous event took place that
will no doubt match the historical significance of those in Ber-
lin (no, it's not the health care legislation). On Wednesday
night, Lou Dobbs announced that he will be leaving his post
as CNN's resident lunatic, seeking a "new way" to advocate
his views. No longer will CNN viewers be plagued by opinion
polls like, "Should the sleazy bureaucrats in Washington be al-
lowed to continue stealing the money of hardworking Ameri-
cans?" (98 percent no, 1 percent yes, 1 percent undecided).
No longer will they see his groundbreaking investigative
pieces, like the one about the thousands of filthy Mexican im-
migrants who bring leprosy into the U.S. each year (yes, he
ran it... no, of course it's not true). But Lou needs some kind
of outlet for his populist-rage, so we are forced to present a
thanks-for-giving-Lou-a-job LAUREL to Fox News (in ad-
vance). Because if the speculation is true, and Lou plans to run
for public office, our heads might just explode.
...And Fox is where he belongs anyway.
The Department of Darts and Laurels, inundated this week
with gripping, important local news, has decided to bring you
none of it, opting rather for cheap shots at local figures over
mundane mistakes (notice a theme?).
Last Friday, UF President Bernie Machen was driving in a
downtown parking lot when he hit another car. Deciding that
he "did not feel that there had been an accident," he fled with-
out leaving a note, according to GPD spokesman Keith Kameg.
For his hilarious cowardice, we throw a thought-you'd-get-
away-with-it-didn't-you DART at President Machen. (If we
were vengeful, it would be aimed at his car window.)
Next up, three UF fraternities are in trouble for allegedly
allowing underage drinking at events over the summer and
early fall. In one case, the line really may have been crossed, as
one fraternity is accused of giving alcohol to two 17-year-old
girls, one of whom was rushed to the emergency room after
vomiting in a SNAP van. For denying the charges, claiming
the girls entered uninvited and were "breaking and entering,"
we throw an own-up-to-the-beer-bong DART at Sigma Phi
Epsilon.
On Wednesday, about 240 people showed up at University
House apartments on Northwest 13th Street for what was an
attempt to break the Guinness World Record for longest mas-
sage chain. For the shameless self promotion, and for falling
so short of your goal (even with the Hooters girls out in force),
we have to throw an epic-massage-fail DART at University
House.
That's it for this week. Go make some real news, Gators!

Guest column

Muslim beliefs not reflected in shooting


May Peace be Upon You.
My name is Nora Zaki, and I am a student at UF.
I am also a Muslim. After hearing about the mass
shooting by Maj. Nidal Malik Hassan at Fort Hood, Texas,
on Nov. 5, I was shocked and upset. I want to express some
comments from a Muslim perspective about this event.
First, I want to express my sincere condolences to the vic-
tims of this horrible incident. Muslims pray five times a day,
and so after each prayer, I will ask God to help the families
of the victims and the Fort Hood community. I also express
my prayers for the family of Hassan, for I am sure they are
dealing with a hard time too.
Second, I want to express my disgust and shame for what
Hassan did. I know that the media will portray the unfortu-
nate fact that he is a Muslim, and I have already seen him be-
ing labeled a Muslim terrorist on news Web sites. The Council
on American Islamic Relations was the first Muslim organi-
zation to denounce the act. The statement said, "No political
or religious ideology could ever justify or excuse such wan-
ton and indiscriminate violence. The attack was particularly
heinous in that it targeted the all-volunteer Army that pro-
tects our nation. American Muslims stand with our fellow
citizens in offering both prayers for the victims and sincere
condolences to the families of those killed or injured."
The circumstances regarding Hassan's harassment by
fellow military members is unfortunate and discriminatory.
But no one has a right to take the lives of innocent people.
And that goes for soldiers fighting the war in Iraq and Af-
ghanistan, too. I am sure Hassan was upset by the fact that
many innocent Muslims are killed by U.S. soldiers, but that
doesn't justify him killing some people at Fort Hood, regard-
less of whether they are Muslim.
I just hope Muslim Americans realize how lucky they
are to live in America. Truly, what a great country this is. I
was bom and raised here and have taken it for granted until
I've learned more about how other Muslims are treated in
other Muslim minority countries, and even Muslim majority


Nora Zaki countries. I don't agree with all of U.S.
Spea king Out foreign policy, but I respect the values
this nation was founded on, and I re-
spect America. In fact, these values are
complementary to Islam.
I would like to end with a historical story, an encounter
between different peoples. During the time when the Proph-
et Muhammad was revealing his message in Mecca, the most
powerful clan realized that his message was challenging its
unfair social order and polytheism, which led to lucrative
business for the dan. So some of Muhammad's followers em-
igrated to Abyssinia, in modem-day Ethiopia. The Abyssin-
ian king, who was a Christian, was known for his tolerance
and "being respectful and fair with his people," writes Tariq
Ramadan, author of "In the Footsteps of the Prophet." Some
emissaries from the clan that tried to persecute the Muslims
tried to magnify the differences of the Muslims and Christians
by presenting them to the the Abyssinian king. The Muslims
told the king about their religion, and he heard the meaning
of what they said: "Their God is the same, whatever the dif-
ferences between their texts and our beliefs; their values of
respect and justice are the same, whatever the discrepancies
between the religions' text.' The king heard and welcomed
those believers of another faith," Ramadan wrote.
Muslims in America can relate to this story. America
has allowed Muslims to live their lives seeking opportunity
while maintaining their faith. Of course hardships and some
unfairness exists, but Muslim Americans should be thankful
nonetheless. Let me end with this: Muslims are people who
can do terrible things. Islam is a beautiful and perfect reli-
gion, but a few Muslims have distorted its teachings. Please
do not confuse the religion with its followers because they
can be completely different.
"And be patient in adversity: for verily, God does not fail
to requite the doers of good!" Quran 11:115.

Letters to the Editor
Kava can cause liver damage
I am astounded that your reporter would
give a green light to anyone promoting kava.
The herb can cause serious liver problems. The
coffee "professor" who has been researching
kava for 11 years should have advised the re-
porter about the numerous lawsuits against
companies selling this stuff.
Terry Polevoy, MD
Ontario, Canada resident


Herbal tea can react with prescriptions
As a third-year pharmacy student, I want-
ed to remark on your article concerning kava.
Many patients don't believe herbals and sup-
plements are medications, so they fail to tell
their doctor that they are taking them.
However, many herbals, kava included,
cause significant interactions with many com-
mon medications.
In some cases, not being aware that an
herbal product can interact with a medication
can be life threatening if there are no symp-
toms of drug inefficacy.
So please be careful when taking what may
seem to be a harmless herbal.

Alligator balances fraternity coverage
I am writing this letter to commend the
Alligator on the way in which it reported the
story "Fraternities charged with providing
alcohol to minors." Contrary to the way in
which stories involving the Greek community
are typically reported, this article displays the
relevant conflicting viewpoints inherent in any
news story. Hopefully the level of journalistic
quality present in this story will continue to
be present in all of the Alligator's future news
articles, particularly stories regarding events
that are crucial to the daily lives of hundreds
of young men. I applaud the effort to contact
each of the relevant organizations.
While I'm disappointed that your newspa-
per sees fit to print a story regarding charges
that, if it lacked the involvement of fraternities,
would never have gotten the attention of the
writers, I am proud that you saw fit to do it
with some sense of journalistic responsibility.
Now, when can I expect stories regarding the
hundreds of non-Greek-affiliated UF students
charged with alcohol-related crimes as well as
those who face UF Student Conduct and Con-
flict Resolution sanctions?

UFstudent


Letter generalizes conservative principles
In response to Frederic Spieler's letter,


"Republicans aren't actually conservative,"
Spieler asks what the conservative principles
are. I would like to try to answer that. Conser-
vatism operates off the ideas of personal free-
dom, limited government interference in the
daily lives of its citizens and a strong capitalist
society. It also stands for fiscal responsibility
and strong national defense. The government
shouldn't help those who aren't willing to help
themselves. Sorry to bust your ideological
bubble, but there are people who, no matter
how much help you give them, will continue
to be self-destructive, make bad decisions and
contribute nothing to society. They should not
be given a free ride on everyone else's dollar.
As far as President Barack Obama failing,
it is not so much a desire for the man himself
to fail but rather a desire for his ideology to
fail. What ideology you ask? Rampant govern-
ment spending, redistribution of wealth, un-
warranted taxation, government restrictions
on constitutional rights and a mentality that
the freest and most generous nation on Earth
owes every other country an apology.
So please, Mr Spieler, avoid gross general-
izations. For every conservative you point out
who feels we should end Medicare and high-
way spending, I can point out a liberal who
feels we should have full governmental con-
trol of the private sector and wishes to institute
communism.

T-shirt displays offensive messages
On Tuesday night, The Laboratory, a local
bar/cafe on University Avenue, unveiled its
new promotional T-shirts. One of the T-shirt
designs was offensive and misogynistic, por-
traying a woman's buttocks (her face was not
shown) as she was entangled in tentacles. The
accompanying caption read, "The Laboratory:
more fun than a night in Japan!"
Not only does this image objectify the fe-
male body, but it blatantly conveys rape im-
agery. Despite vocal protests from myself and
two other female patrons of the establishment
(and likely some silent protests), owner Larry
Bruce continued to promote the shirt with its
misogynistic imagery. Bruce states that only
two shirts were made as "gags" and were giv-
en away, not sold; however, this does not mol-
lify the offensive nature of the shirt, and the
notions that female objectification and rape
are a "gag" magnify the ignominy of the shirt.
In addition to its offensiveness, the image
perpetuates violence toward women, a trend
on the rise. According to the Parents Television
Council, violence toward women on television
has increased 120 percent in the last five years.
Promoting a business using rape imagery and
objectifying women is unacceptable. I want
Bruce to recall the offensive shirts and issue
a public apology. Until then, I am boycotting
The Lab and will unabashedly tell this story.

PICKS, from page 14

can score on the Alabama defense. Plus, Phil Kegler hates fun, football
and America, so there's no way any of his picks are going to hit this
weekend. KYLE MAISTRI

Now, on to the picks!
In first place for the second straight week with a 54-45 record is Kyle
"I'm going to go slip into a coma" Maistri, whose body shut down and
immune system failed after playing two short hours of flag football
Wednesday afternoon.
Nipping at his heels at 52-47 (because he's short and Kyle's heels
are at eye level) is Bobby "I didn't get enough nap time" Callovi, who
refused to wake up before 10 a.m. to podcast today. It's not our fault
your babysitter forgot to warm up your bottle before putting you to
sleep Thursday. We told her to dab a drop of alcohol on your gums to
ease the teething pains.
The last picker above .500 at 51-48 is the Tampa Tribune's Mike "Mu-
phy's Law" DiFerdinando, who lives his life by that standard: anything
that can go wrong, will. We don't want to say he worries about every-
thing, but he's been freaking out about whether or not the sun will rise
for the past week.
Sitting in fourth place at 48-51 is Mike "Starbucks makes me gassy"
McCall, who loaded up on coffee for his test and then unloaded on his
classmates. At least he didn't save it for the long trip to Columbia.
In a tie for fifth at 46-53 is the Gainesville Sun's Ed "Hola, mami"
Aschoff, who is attending vLATIN LADIES NIGHTv @ 101 DOWN-
TOWN. Como se dice, "Once you go black, you never go back"?
Tied with Ed is the Florida Times-Union's Mike "How can we insult
such a kind, elderly man?" DiRocco, who is old and short. We're on
deadline and uncreative. Enjoy!
Free falling to seventh place at 44-55 is Phil "Kontact" Kegler, who
bulldozed one of our copy chiefs during our Veterans' Day flag football


game. Kegs obviously wasn't clear on the rules, resulting in a collapsed
lung for our poor friend.
In eighth place at 43-56 is Jeremy "What's it like to write a check for
$30K?" Fowler, who broke the rules of conversation with Urban Meyer.
Never talk about politics, religion or money. He didn't ask you what it
was like to write that $6.49 check for got2b glued styling spiking glue,
did he?
In ninth place at 40-59 and closing in on last is Joe "Do you look for
holes when you run?" Goodman, who was proud to get Tim Tebow to
say, "Yeah, I look for the holes," in a quote. Way to go, Joe.
Holding down his usual position in dead-last place at 38-61 is Ben
"I'm totally Mr. December" Volin, who was disappointed to be left out
of the Nice Jewish Guy calendar. His wardrobe: a yarmulke and noth-
ing else.

picking against the spread wasn't
such a good idea.

Columns past, our writers would
routinely put up impressive win-loss

Only three of us are above .500,

MISSISSIPPI STATE WILL COVER THE

will suffer a letdown after clinching
the SEC West. The Crimson Tide have
also shown an ability to allow lesser
opponents to stick around much like
the Gators. Plus, Dan Mullen needs
a signature win in his first season af-
ter falling short against LSU, Georgia

two teams that love to run the ball, so
I see the Bulldogs keeping it close.

UF FOOTBALL

Tebow faces Spurrier for final time

By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alllgator org

It isn't common for Florida to face an opponent whose
coach roots for the Gators. Then again, Gainesville used to
be home for Steve Spurrier.
The South Carolina coach will face his former team for
the fifth time when No. 1 Florida (9-0, 7-0 Southeastern
Conference) heads to Columbia for a 3:30 p.m. kickoff Sat-
urday.
"I pull for the Gators, sure," Spurrier said this week. "Al-
most all their games are on TV, and we're usually a night
team.
"We realize we're pretty big underdogs and the Gators
are a very good team. But they know we're going to try to
win.
Florida quarterback Tim Tebow will face the 01' Ball
Coach and the Gamecocks (6-4, 3-4 SEC) for the final time.
The first two meetings have been memorable, although
likely more for Tebow than Spurrier.
In 2007, Tebow completed 22 of 32 passes for 304 yards
and two touchdowns and rushed for 120 yards and five
touchdowns as Florida won 51-31.
Last year, he threw for 173 yards and two touchdowns
and added another score on the ground as the Gators hand-
ed Spurrier his worst loss in The Swamp, 56-6.
"It's just the way it worked out. I think it's cool," Tebow
said. "Last SEC game and it's versus coach Spurrier, who's
done so much for the SEC and just changed the SEC in a lot
of different ways, especially early on in the '90s and what
he's done for the SEC and for college football in general.
"Anytime you go against a coach like that it's going to
be special."
While Florida has won 17 of the last 18 matchups, South
Carolina proved to be a pest in 2005 (30-22 South Carolina
win) and '06 (17-16 UF win) Spurrier's first two years.
Despite having already clinched the SEC East, the Gators
aren't losing focus. If anything, they can see the finish line
with two of their biggest goals still left an undefeated
season and a third national title in four years.
"It gets easier when you're playing for championships,"
UF coach Urban Meyer said. "We've been pretty fortunate
here. We've been playing for championships pretty much

Basketball Jones


By EUGENIO TORRENS
Alligator Staff Writer
etorrens@alligatororg

Everyone in the Colonial Center on Jan. 27,
2008, knew the ball was going to Jordan Jones
with one second left.
"I love the pressure situations," Jones said.
She got open two steps behind the three-
point line and let the ball go.
Swish.
Unfortunately for Jones and the South Car-
olina Gamecocks, time expired before the ball
left her hand. Florida won 60-57.
"We knew we were inheriting a kid that
could hit the game shot," UF assistant coach
Brenda Kirkpatrick said.
Fast forward to the present. UF will host
Stetson tomorrow to open its 2009-2010 sea-
son.
In addition to four incoming freshmen, one
more new player will be donning orange and
blue: Jones.
The Gamecock turned Gator transferred
from USC in the summer after her freshman
season in Columbia, S.C.
She didn't go far, making the 6-hour trip
south to Gainesville to stay in the Southeast-
ern Conference.
"I think that's the toughest conference in
basketball," Jones said.
Because of NCAA rules regarding trans-
fers, Jones had to sit out last season. It was
a trying ordeal for her, physically and even
more so mentally.
"It's almost like every day blended togeth-
er because every day I would come in, I'd go
to practice, then I'd leave and get home and
there was nothing really to look forward to,"
Jones said.

BIRTHING COMPETITIVENESS
Growing up, Jones competed with her
brother Tanner, now 18, in just about every-
thing. And it's not hard to see where that com-
petitive spirit came from.
"Everyone likes to win a lot in our family,"
Jordan and Tanner's mother, Angela Jones,
said. "You either get good at it, or you're real
unhappy for a while because someone beats
you."
"I feel like I'm a completely differ-
ent player than I was my freshman
year at South Carolina."
Jordan Jones
UF redshirt sophomore guard

The pairing competed in everything: bas-
ketball, baseball, Monopoly, checkers, video
games. If one was crossing the street, the other
might walk a bit faster. Then the other would
walk faster, until walking turned into sprint-
ing.
Anything the two could find a way to com-
pete in, they did.
"My mom always said I would quit if I
wasn't winning," Jones said. "I don't think I'll
ever admit that he can beat me in something.
Maybe he had his lucky days."
Jones remembered living on a cul-de-sac,
playing basketball with Tanner until the front
light of the house came on which meant it was
time to come inside.
And though Jones' eventual claim to fame
would be basketball she averaged 14 points
per game for the No. 1 high school basketball
team in the nation her senior year at Collins
High School her first sport was softball,
which she started playing at the age of 2.
By the age of 11, Jones was the pitcher on
Tanner's baseball team.
So when Jones showed interest in basket-
ball in sixth grade, it came as a surprise to her
mother.
It was evident Jones had some innate bas-


ketball talent. By the end of her sixth grade
year, she was the leading scorer on the team.
"I'm always amazed at her desire to be as
good as she can be," Angela said.

FRESHMAN THIRTEEN
Emerging from the high school basketball
scene as the 50th best player in the nation, ac-
cording to Sports Illustrated and Rise Maga-
zine, it may have been no surprise that Jones
landed in the SEC, one of the toughest confer-
ences if not the toughest in women's col-
lege basketball.
She signed as a Gamecock under then-
head-coach Susan Walvius. Rather than be-
ing ushered in slowly, Jones was thrust into a
starting role at USC against stiff SEC competi-
tion.
"I really wasn't sure if I belonged," she
said.
A shooter by nature, she was asked to play
the point, something she hated at first and did
only because it was demanded of her.
It didn't prevent Jones from making an im-
pact.
In her freshman year, she led the Game-
cocks in scoring, netting 13.1 points ninth
among all SEC players.
With an ability to shoot it from deep range,
she led the SEC and was third in the country


with 3.03 three-pointers per game.
The Gamecocks ended the season 16-16
and on April 14, 2008, it was announced that
Walvius resigned effective May 31.
Jones admitted the decision upset her be-
cause of the rapport she had established with
Walvius.
Her initial inclination was to leave, but after
her mom calmed her down a bit, she decided
to do research on other possibilities.
"Honestly, when you're in the recruiting
process, (the coach is) who you build a rela-
tionship with," Jones said. "You go to a school
and you really want to play for that coach.
That was the hardest thing. They brought in
a new coach."
Looking back, Jones said the coaching
change was a blessing in disguise because it
led her to Gainesville.
Jones lined up visits to UF, Kentucky, Au-
burn and Georgia.
Her mind was made up after she attended
a Gators softball game during the 2008 Wom-
en's College World Series run.
"This was the only visit I had to take,"
Jones said.
She did it again. She was drawn to a coach.
Amanda Butler.
"I just can't imagine anyone not wanting to
play for coach Butler," Jones said.


UF guard Jordan Jones is eligible to play this season after transferring from South
Carolina. She led the Gamecocks in scoring in 2007-08.


ANNO PRACTICUM
With a new school in front of her and USC
behind her, Jones arrived in Gainesville part
seasoned sophomore, part baby-faced fresh-
man.
"I carried around a campus map for the
first two months I was here," Jones said.
Butler said dealing with the newness fac-
tor is one of the hardest aspects of transfer-
ring, getting acclimated even though she had
already been in college one year.
Jones' lost sense of direction paled in com-
parison, though, to the helplessness she felt
sitting out for an entire year.
"No matter how ready you think you are,
sitting out for an entire season takes a mental
toll," Butler said.
The coaching staff tries to keep players sit-
ting out engaged and challenged but admitted
it is hard making inactive players feel as spe-
cial as those playing in games.
"That is tough, sitting out," Kirkpatrick
said. "It's hard to feel like you're contributing
because most kids gauge their contributions
on what they're doing in the games."
It was especially hard on Jones when the
Gators were losing because she was forced to
watch, powerless to help.
Playing sports since she was in elementary
school, the 601 days between Jones' last orga-
nized college basketball game and the Stetson
game marks the longest stretch she hasn't put
on a jersey for a meaningful game.
During that year off, she set goals for herself
in practice such as scoring a certain amount of
points, or being more aggressive and driving
to the rim more. But it hardly softened the
blow of not being able to play.
"Every single day, bringing 100-percent
effort that was the hardest thing, knowing
that I didn't have a game to look forward to or
playing time to earn," Jones said.
She didn't regret transferring but ques-
tioned whether or not she could stick it out.
She knew she would be able to hone her skills
with a whole year off, but she didn't realize
how hard it would be.
One of her teammates, Susan Yenser, knew
how tough it was.
A transfer from Clemson, Yenser decided
she needed a change of scenery after two
years. She sat out Butler's inaugural year at
UF, 2007-2008.
"I know that there's some days when you
walk in the locker room and you're just like
'Man, it doesn't really matter what I do to-
day,'" Yenser said. "I definitely felt for J.J., and
I would try to pick her up."
Jones leaned on Yenser as the older men-
tor. The two had lunches where Yenser would
check on Jones to see how she was coping with
her year off.
And though it may have been hard to ap-
preciate at the moment, Jones was reaping the
rewards of practicing for a whole year without
any pressure.
Indeed, she pointed out several facets of
her game that had improved including her
3-point shot off the dribble, her ball handling
and her ability as a scorer.
She's also grown accustomed to, and now
embraces, the point guard position she dread-
ed at USC.
Defense, too. Playing last year on the scout
team, Jones got all the exposure to defense she
could have wanted.
"When this year came, I didn't want to look
back on last year and say 'Wow. I sat out all of
last year and it was a waste that I didn't get
better,'" Jones said.
She doesn't think that now. Her expecta-
tions this year are huge, and last year only fed
her ever-growing anticipation for this season.
"I feel like I'm a completely different player
than I was my freshman year at South Caro-
lina," she said. "Last year was an overall suc-
cess.

UF faces less pressure in 2009-10


* FLORIDA WILL HOST
STETSON ON SUNDAY.

By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alllgatororg

Two years removed from standing
on top of the college basketball world,
Florida is finally stepping out of its
own shadow.
The Gators will open their season
Sunday at 4 p.m. against Stetson at
home, underneath the banners com-
memorating their back-to-back na-
tional championships, but the pressure
and expectations associated with them
are a distant memory at this point.
UF is not ranked in the AP pre-
season top 25 for the second time in
three years although it received 53
votes in the poll and was picked to
finish fifth in the Southeastern Confer-
ence East this season behind Kentucky,
Tennessee, South Carolina and Van-
derbilt.
"Not a lot of people are expecting
stuff from us, so we've got nothing to
lose," senior forward Dan Wemer said.
"We've got the underdog mentality to
just go out there and play our game."
The last time the Gators were
picked to finish fifth in their division
was 2005, when they performed well
above the expectations and won their


first national title.
Werner, a freshman role player on
the 2006-07 team, said the lower ex-
pectations have taken some pressure
off the young Gators. That hasn't been
the case the last few seasons, however,
especially the year after the NCAA
Championship.
"I think we were all tight," added
Werner, now the team's only senior.
"Right now, we're just playing real
loose."
Unlike concerns voiced by UF coach
Billy Donovan during the last two
years, Wemer doesn't think the team's
more relaxed demeanor is a sign of the
players taking things for granted or
feeling arrogant without having prov-
en anything on the court.
"As long as we play hard, it's a
good thing that we're playing loose,"
Werner said. "I just think that's the
makeup of our team. Just really laid
back and easy going."
Without one player as the under-
stood go-to guy for direction and guid-
ance, the Gators have developed better
chemistry.
Donovan pointed to Werner as a
leader by example and attitude in prac-
tice, and sophomore Erving Walker as
UF's floor general at point guard, but
neither is a particularly vocal presence
on the court.
Chandler Parsons has taken on an


increased leadership role as well. Dur-
ing the Gators' two exhibition games,
the junior forward was the team's
emotional center, leading huddles and
challenging teammates to play better
defense at halftime after a lackluster
first five minutes against Webber In-
ternational.
Donovan also pointed to redshirtju-
nior center Vernon Macklin as a vocal
leader due to his age and experience,
and freshman guard Kenny Boyn-
ton echoed that opinion when asked
which of his new teammates he looks
up to the most.
"I think he's a great leader in the
way he talks to us," Boynton said.
"And he's probably older than all of
us."
Donovan cautioned that all his
players have areas in which they need
to improve or become more consistent
before they can truly be the team's
leader a title he is reluctant to be-
stow on any one person.
"Who's the catalyst, the focal guy
out there? I don't know if it's anybody,
per se," Donovan said. "There is re-
spect inside our team for one another,
but I think they all try to do different
things in different ways.
"If anything, it's going to be more
of a collective group where you have
several people basically trying to fill
that role."
