that many thought would go down as one of
the greatest ever.
Before playing Tennessee in the third
game of this season, UT coach Lane Kiffin's
offseason comments were put up all over
the locker room.
Prior to facing Kentucky, it was a run-
ning back with a big mouth.
And ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit even became
a source of motivation, when he "called out"
Brandon Spikes and the defense leading up
to the LSU game.
"Our coaches always say that stuff to
try to motivate us, they say stuff like, 'They
called you out!'" Stamper said. "Sometimes
they probably say stuff the other team didn't
say just to motivate us, but it works."
Stamper said UK's Alfonso Smith really
did talk smack about the defense, but he
didn't recall anything negative being said
before playing under the lights at Death
Valley.
The defense played with something to
prove just the same, holding the Tigers to
three points in front of a crowd that had
watched 32 straight Saturday night home
victories in Baton Rouge.
With Alabama on the horizon for this
weekend's Southeastern Conference Cham-
pionship Game, defensive coordinator Char-
lie Strong has been challenging his players


to "bring their big boy pads" to Saturday's
game.
"He's going to keep repeating it, 'Major,
what are you doing? Bring your big boy
pads!'" Wright said. "I know that coach, I
got my big boy pads."
Strong keeps repeating catchphrases -
telling his cornerbacks that tall wide receiv-
ers are "going to eat peanuts off your head"
is another one and his defense keeps re-
peating wins.
Now 22 in a row.

juice (joos) n.: respect, power.
"Brandon Spikes is a great player. He brings
a lot of juice to the game."
UFsafety Ahmad Black


It's easy to develop swag.
It can be even easier to get hype before
a game.
But juice is something very few teams
ever obtain.
Juice means opposing quarterbacks are
handled with kid gloves by their coaches,
forced to dump the ball into the flat and
told not to challenge Florida's lockdown
corners.
Juice means the coach of one of your ri-
vals runs the ball down by 10 points with
six minutes to go in the fourth quarter be-
cause he would rather try to keep it close
than win.
UF's defense, which is loaded with fu-
ture NFL talent, is allowing fewer than 10
points per game, best in the nation.
Brandon Spikes and Co. have the juice.
Meyer has often repeated a phrase that
Spikes, the team's defensive leader, has
coined.
"It's what we do," Meyer says.
The saying means nothing, really.


It's the team's way of saying, "Whatever
incredible feat happens on the field is noth-
ing new for us."
The Gators' defense expects to go out
and dominate the same way opponents ex-
pect to be dominated by them.
Juice is the universal recognition of dom-
inance.
Before the season, Strong had some
words of advice for a unit that had aspira-
tions of going down as the best in college
football history.
"If you're going to sell those tickets, you
better be ready to cash them," he said.
It's doubtful anyone will be asking for
a refund from Strong's defense come Sun-
day.

Four boxes of graham crackers,
three bags of M&M's and a contain-
er of frosting was all it took to build
the Great Wall of China.
Luckily, there was still some left
over for the Reitz Union and Ben
Hill Griffin Stadium.
Members of the UF chapter of
Habitat for Humanity held their
third annual Candy House Building
Competition Thursday afternoon on
the Reitz Union North Lawn.
More than 40 people voted for
their favorite of five gingerbread
houses decorated with M&M's,
Mike and Ikes, Life Savers and can-
dy canes. Each house was built by a
team of two from the UF Habitat for
Humanity.
"Last time I built one, I was in
first grade, so it brought back some
memories," said Stephany Vento,


spring fundraising chairwoman for
the club.
The graham cracker replica of the
Great Wall of China earned the most
votes, with Barbie's Malibu Dream
House coming in second.

masterpieces were built to look like

Gators stomp for kids


By ALISON SCHWARTZ
Alligator Writer

Technicolor lights bounced off the
walls at Rum Runners, an acoustic artist
hummed in the background and Ashley
Miller sipped the beer she had received.
She was one of an estimated 500 people
who flocked downtown for Stompin' for
the Holidays, the fall semester version of
Gator Stompin'.
"I'm a senior," she said. "This is some-
thing that you have to do in Gainesville be-
fore you leave."
Organized by the Pledge 5 Foundation,
the seasonal celebration transformed down-
town Gainesville into a pub and restaurant
crawl as participants weaved in and out of
local hot spots.
The event kicked off at Rum Runners,
where a Southeastern Conference Champi-
onship pep rally set the tone for an evening
of mingling and mixed drinks.
A Gainesville tradition since 1983, par-
ticipants paid a base admission fee and re-


ceived a lanyard and 10 tickets redeemable
for food, drinks and entry into raffles at
about 20 vendors, including Shooting Star
Japanese Grill & Sushi, Lux, The Gelato
Company and Skyy night club.
"It's the holiday season. Students
don't have a lot to give in terms of
monetary donations, but they can
afford a toy."
Jason Bowman
Stompin' for the Holidays coordinator

But the fest was more than a good time.
The event raised awareness for Toys for
Tots, an organization dedicated to distrib-
uting toys to children from economically
disadvantaged families.
From action figures to board games, par-
ticipants were encouraged to donate a toy.
Jason Bowman, the event coordinator,
said the decision to support Toys for Tots

Students protest fees


for class assignment


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewa rt@a I lIgator org

Students with a homework as-
signment to organize a protest did
just that Thursday afternoon on
Turlington Plaza, choosing to dem-
onstrate against escalating educa-
tion costs.
The students, enrolled in a class
called "Social Problems," protested
UF's 15 percent tuition increase,
changes to the Bright Futures schol-
arship and the proposed student fee
to fund part of the $70 million to $80
million in Reitz Union renovations,
among other things.


Their teacher, Meggan Jordan -
a graduate student joined in as
students marched in a circle, hoist-
ed homemade signs and chanted
phrases like "We
say no! Our fees
must go!"
"The theme of
the class has been
speaking out,
speaking truth to
power and know-
ing when you're
getting screwed," Jordan said.
Students who didn't feel like
participating were allowed to sit
the protest out, she said.

County to provide


free H IN1 vaccines


Gators who forgot to sign up for
H1N1 vaccines at the Student Health
Care Center will have another shot
Saturday.
Vaccines will be given at four
sites around the county: Fellowship
Church of High Springs, Easton-New-
berry Sports Complex, Trinity United
Methodist Church and First Baptist
Church Waldo. All locations will give
vaccines from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. except
First Baptist Church Waldo, which
will be open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Both the injectable and nasal mist
form of the vaccine will be offered.
The Alachua County Health De-
partment does not expect to run out
of vaccines, and vaccinating high risk
groups will be a priority.
The groups at highest risk are preg-
nant women, health care and emer-
gency workers, people who live with
or care for infants, children between 6


months and 4 years and children be-
tween 5 years and 18 years who have
pre-existing conditions.
Once those groups have received
their vaccinations, people between 5
and 24 years old and people between
25 and 64 who have pre-existing con-
ditions will be next in line.
"We are encouraging citizens who
are most at risk for severe complica-
tions from H1N1 swine
Local flu to receive the vac-
News cination," wrote Jean
Munden, administrator
of the health department, in a press
release. "Getting a vaccination is the
primary means of preventing infec-
tion."

people can download and print con-
sent forms from alachuacountyhealth.

Zen Run to benefit children


By HILARY SHEINBAUM
Alligator Contributing Writer
After overeating at Thanksgiving and with
stressful finals fast approaching, Gainesville
residents might appreciate a Saturday run.
Zen Fitness will hold the Zen 5K and 10K
Race For Childhood Wellness Saturday at Haile
Plantation Village Center, 5110 SW 91st Drive.
The event benefits the Zen Fitness Childhood
Wellness Program.
The program involves an essay contest in
January at local middle and high schools, in-
cluding Gainesville High School and Kanapaha
Middle School. The students will write about
diet and nutrition.
Winners receive nine weeks of training,
books and educational material promoting a
healthy lifestyle, said Matt Bakos, Zen Fitness
trainer and applied physiology and kinesiology
senior.
This year's race is the first Zen Run, but or-
ganizers hope to make the run an annual event,
Bakos said.
Bakos, the event's organizer, expects about
400 runners at the event. Of the 400, he estimates
about 75 to 100 will be UF students, including
members of the track and triathlon clubs.
The run's route circles an 18-hole golf course.


The route will be marked with signs, and volun-
teers will be on every turn.
Awards will be given to the fastest male and
female runners in six age groups. Other race-
day events include massages, raffles, food and

Lacrosse team gives tour


* THE FACILITIES OPENED
IN AUGUST.

By DEREK GILLIAM
Alligator Contributing Writer

The UF women's lacrosse team facili-
ties were on display as head coach Amanda
O'Leary gave a tour of the new facilities to the
Academic & Professional Assembly Thursday
afternoon.
The APA is an organization comprised of
UF administrators who provide communica-
tion with faculty, said Connie Nicklin, presi-
dent of the APA.
The assembly had about 25 members par-
ticipate in the tour.
"We try to provide access to people our
assembly would usually not have," Nicklin
said.
The facilities, located on Hull Road just
south of the softball field, were absolutely out-
standing, said Christine Schoaff, past presi-
dent of the APA and a former lacrosse player.
"I don't think I have ever seen such pret-


ty manicured grass in one place," said Rick
Goodnight, assembly program chairman.
O'Leary said few programs have both a
practice field and a game field.
The new facilities, which were opened in
August, include a training room staffed with
two trainers, a press box, a conference room
and locker rooms for both the visiting and
home teams.
This spring will mark the team's inaugural
season.
The American Lacrosse Con-
On ference includes schools from
Campus the East Coast, Midwest and
Southeast.
O'Leary said the team's expectations are
to stay competitive throughout the season,
which may be a tall task because the roster in-
cludes 24 freshmen.
Talent will not be the problem since
O'Leary put together a solid recruiting effort,
being ranked No. 1 in recruiting by Inside La-
crosse magazine.
"We have a wonderful group," O'Leary
said "They have great work ethic and are im-
proving."

$5,000 raised for libraries

Members of the Florida Swing Dancing Club Brian Flatley and Jessie

By MARA RUDOLPH
Alligator Contributing Writer

A program co-sponsored by the University
Athletic Association and UF Alumni Associa-
tion is scoring big for students.
With the Pay for Performance Florida Foot-
ball Challenge, the George A. Smathers librar-
ies were able to raise more than $5,000, which
will fund the improvement of library resources
and extend study time.
The libraries received donations ranging
from 25 cents to $100 every time the Gators
scored a touchdown in the regular season.
There is also talk of donations for touchdowns
in the Southeastern Conference championship
this weekend.
Samuel Huang, the libraries' associate dean
for advancement and development, said the
money will be used to meet growing student
and faculty research and learning needs.
"All the money we raise will be to upgrade
and refresh technology for the students," he
said. "Everything is to benefit the students."
The idea for the program, which is the first
of its kind among any of the SEC schools, came
from 13-year-old Brent Carris. During the 2009


BCS championship game, he asked his father,
Richard Carris, library leadership board di-
rector, if he would give money every time the
Gators scored a touchdown.
Brent's question inspired his father, a UF
graduate, to take action and get Urban Meyer
on board for support.
"All the money we raise will be to
upgrade and refresh technology
for the students. Everything is to
benefit the students."
Samuel Huang
George A. Smathers Libraries associate
dean for advancement and development

"The main reason for this was that I basi-
cally thought 'How many hours do you spend
going to the library versus going to a football
game?'" he said.
Huang said another pledge drive is planned
for basketball season, The Florida Basketball
3-point Challenge.

Editorial
So you're finally ready to dump all the knowledge you
(hopefully) absorbed over the semester in a cathartic flurry
of finals, term papers and unnecessarily harsh "Rate My
Professors" rants?
Well, since you won't be retaining a drop of this knowl-
edge, you'll have a lot of space in that hollow, post-test head of
yours to fill over winter break. And on that note, we're happy
to present you with a don't-worry-about-your-calculus-grade-
you-can-leam-more-important-lessons-outside-the-classroom
edition of...



Darts & Laurels
To prove the very point that learning doesn't stop at lecture
hall doors (or at the end of a Smokin' Notes packet), filmmak-
ers descended on Gainesville last summer to record the life
of Melinda Augustus, a custodian at the Florida Museum of
Natural History.
The film, "The Philosopher Kings," follows Augustus as
she tells her story and focuses on seven other custodians from
universities across the nation. The lesson: "Wisdom can come
from more than just textbooks and teachers."
For candidly telling her life story and giving Gainesville
and Alachua residents a spot in the media they can truly be
proud of, we would like to give a keep-smiling-and-we're
bound-to-leam-something LAUREL to Melinda Augustus.
Unfortunately, not all of the lessons we will encounter over
break are positive ones.
Even the most benign and relatively insignificant events
can provide a stinging lesson of regret. And it is with regret
that we report Florida State University has beaten UF in a Fa-
cebook competition for a free Weezer concert.
While we find Weezer mildly amusing, we probably
wouldn't have gone to the show even if it was free. But los-
ing to FSU at just about anything, including trivial Facebook
contests... well, it's just plain unbearable.
So we have to throw a this-wasn't-an-SG-election-so-we-
expected-a-better-tumout DART at UF students and alumni.
The lesson: Online voting probably won't help low voter inter-
est in UF elections. Maybe try relevance?
One of the most difficult out-of-the-classroom lessons this
week was learned by former Arkansas Gov. Mike Hukabee.
His future presidential hopes were likely crushed by Mau-
rice Clemmons, who allegedly shot and killed four police of-
ficers in Lakewood, Wash., on Sunday. It was revealed that
Huckabee granted clemency to Clemmons some nine years
ago for crimes he committed while in high school. Clemmons
ultimately returned to a life of crime, culminating in Sunday's
brutal shootings. He was shot and killed by police after evad-
ing capture for two days.
For taking the life of the four officers and forever damag-
ing their families, and for ruining many deserving juvenile de-
fendants' chances for clemency, we throw a we-knew-you'd-
get-what-was-coming-to-you-eventually DART at Maurice
Clemmons. The lesson for Huckabee: Compassion doesn't
always pay off.
Thankfully, members of the UF chapter of Habitat for Hu-
manity showed us on Thursday that some good deeds do
go unpunished. The group raised awareness for its cause by
building gingerbread house-style recreations of the Great Wall
of China, Ben Hill Griffin Stadium and, of course, our favorite,
the Reitz Union. We wonder if they had enough materials left
over for the expansion. Were there enough gum drops and ic-
ing cement to complete the renovation?
For raising money for an important cause and getting UF
students involved by any means necessary (sweets never hurt),
we would like to give a you're-as-sweet-as-your-gingerbread-
Reitz-Union LAUREL to UF Habitat for Humanity. Because
no one has ever made asbestos taste this good! The lesson:
Don't give up hope on good deeds.
That's it for this week. Hope you can remember these les-
sons better than the calculus (or biology, English or Man's
Food).

Students also protested 15

Hunter Sizemore/ Alligator Staff
Meggan Jordan, a UF grad student who teaches the course 'Social Problems,' protests high student
fees with her class on Turlington Plaza. The protest was the students' idea, Jordan said.


PROTEST, from page 1

Steven Shanik, one of two lead-
ers of the event, directed the pro-
test from atop a concrete table in
the plaza.
Shanik, a UF freshman, said ris-
ing tuition and declining support
from scholarships like Bright Fu-
tures is squeezing some potential
students out of a chance to get a
college education in Florida.
UF raised tuition by 15 percent
this year, the maximum allowed
each year under a new state law
that lets state universities raise tu-
ition until they reach the national
average.
As a result, tuition and fees for
most undergraduates at UF are
now $145.76 per credit hour, up
from $125.91.
Meanwhile, Bright Futures will
continue to pay only $126 per cred-
it hour for Academic Scholars, the

UF students could also see their
fees increase by $20 a year, in ad-
dition to $3 more per credit hour
to pay for renovations to the Reitz
Union.
Jordan, who was standing next
to a sign protesting the fee, said it
would impact graduate students
- particularly those with fami-
lies more than undergraduates,
because they are not eligible for
Bright Futures.
"You're basically taking money
out of the pockets of families," she
said.

UF RESEARCH

Camera gives closer look at cancer


By GAIA BONINI
Alligator Contributing Writer
A new tool developed by a UF re-
searcher could revolutionize cancer
treatment and allow for much earlier
detection of tumors.
Endoscopes are a common tool
used in the detection of cancer. A cam-
era affixed to a long, thin tube allows
doctors to see abnormal growths on
the surface of internal organs.
Huikai Xie created a "scanning
micro-endoscope" by replacing the
camera with an infrared scanner that
allows a doctor to "see" beneath an or-
gan's surface tissue.
"It's a technology which can see
through tissue, so it can see depths of
information, not just the surface," he
said.
While traditional endoscopes give a
view of an organ's surface tissue, doc-
tors can't see how deep or exactly how
big the growth is, making biopsies in-
exact, unnecessarily random and often
dangerous when performed on vital
organs, Xie said.
Biopsies can cause internal bleed-


ing and trauma to organs. They can
also take several days to be processed
by a lab to determine whether the tis-
sue is cancerous or not, leaving a pa-
tient's peace of mind hanging in the
balance.
Once a growth is visible on the sur-
face, Xie said it is likely the rest of the
organ could fail.
Xie's scanner allows doctors to look
beneath the surface
of the tissue before
a cancerous growth
is big enough to be
seen.
Byseeingthrough
the tissue rather than
just its surface, doc-
tors can also deter-
mine the exact size
and margins of a growth, taking the
guesswork out of biopsies and elimi-
nating the chance of over-cutting.
"Our organs are very valuable,"
Xie said. "And today's biopsies are not
a good technique."
Xie's scanners have a resolution
10 times higher than the only other
non-camera based endoscopes avail-


able, and one of his scanners can even
produce a 360-degree image of the sur-
rounding tissue.
Eventually, Xie said he hopes to be
able to use his scanners not only in the
detection of cancer cells but also in the
surgical removal of tumors.
He is working to attach a cutting
instrument to his scanners that would
allow doctors to have a real-time view
of areas undergoing surgery. While
currently they rely mostly on still MRI-
and CT-scanned images taken before
the surgery.
This would be most beneficial in
high-risk, precision operations, where
over-cutting could lead to permanent
damage, such as in brain surgery, Xie
said.
If his project gets the funding it
needs to continue in research and re-
ceives all the necessary FDA approv-
als, Xie said he expects his scanning
micro-endoscopes could be on the
medical market in two or three years.
He is already collaborating with
doctors at Shands at UF to perfect his
instruments and said they could be the
first in the field to work with them.

There's a lot at stake this week in
the alligatorSports Brand Picks Column
this week, as the pickers are doing their
final jockeying for the crown and trying
to avoid embarrassment. Only two -
Bobby Callovi and Kyle Maistri are
still actually picking for glory.

TEXAS WILL COVER THE -13.5 SPREAD
BECAUSE ... Kyle's taking Nebraska
for one reason: he has a Nebraska T-
shirt. Now, this isn't just any T-shirt.
No, this one comes with memories,
the happiest of Kyle's miserable life.
It hasn't been washed in seven years,
so as to keep the smell from the time
he stood next to a girl for more than a
minute without peeing his pants and
crying. There's a tear on the back from
the time the neighborhood bullies let
him off easy by just hanging him from a
fence by his wedgie. So there you have
it. Kyle has to pick Nebraska, because if
the Huskers lose, he'll lose all hope.
MIKE McCALL

NEBRASKA WILL COVER THE +13.5
SPREAD BECAUSE ... Mike McCall was
born with a silver spoon in his mouth,
and one up his butt, as it turns out.
The universe has to balance itself
out at some point. McCall represents
lucky Texas, which has had every-
thing go its way this season. You and
me, we're Nebraska. The underdog.
We don't live in Ponte Vedra, belong
to a world class country club and
go yachting on the reg. McCall has
had everything go his way his entire
life, and I'm sick of it. Let's see how
he deals with a little adversity for a
change. To McCall, adversity is noth-
ing more than being unable to wear an
undershirt that matches the logo on
his Ralph Lauren Polo shirt because
his mom forgot to do his laundry. It's
time he joined us in the real world.

Gators sweep


Cougars, move


on in NCAAs
By ANTHONY CHIANG
Alligator Writer
ach ang@all gator org

Not much has changed in the last two years.
In 2007, Florida swept College of Charleston in
the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
On Thursday the No. 14 Gators (24-5, 16-4
Southeastern Conference) did it again as they dom-
inated the Cougars 3-0 (25-21, 25-17, 25-18) in the
O'Connell Center to open the postseason.
"There is a different feeling in the
O'Connell Center during the tournament.
It becomes more of a neutral environ-
ment, and I'm not sure we played quite
with the emotion we needed to generate
without the P.A., the light show and all of
those things."
Mary Wise
UF volleyball coach

But the home-court advantage wasn't quite the
one UF was used to.
The NCAA enforces rules that help make the
venues an even playing field during the postsea-
son.
"There is a different feeling in the O'Connell
Center during the tournament," coach Mary Wise
said. "It becomes more of a neutral environment,

Pull for No. 3 Texas (vs. No. 22 Ne-

No, we need to keep showing the system

to keep having undefeated teams left out of
the running so the championship isn't truly

And if the Frogs went to The Big One

deserve that chance ever again. Let them

Improved conditioning frees up Donovan's coaching


* FLORIDA WILL PLAY AT
JACKSONVILLE TONIGHT AT 7.

By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alligatororg

Florida's 6 a.m. workouts and relays
this summer have paid dividends beyond
just improved conditioning.
With his players finally in good enough
shape to endure the physical demands of
practice, UF coach Billy Donovan has been
freed up to prepare his team in a way that
wasn't possible a season ago.
"The last couple years, he was just try-
ing to get guys to play hard. He couldn't
even really teach," senior forward Dan
Werner said. "Now, we're playing at a dif-
ferent level. He can explain stuff to us, we
can figure things out a little better and we
get more shots up every day."
In its matchup with Jacksonville (0-4)
tonight at 7 in Jacksonville Veterans Me-
morial Arena, No. 13 Florida (7-0) will get
another chance to show the strides Dono-
van has been able to make with his team
in practice.
The most noticeable and effective ex-
ample of the Gators' improved condition-
ing so far this season has been their full-
court pressure. Werner said Donovan has
worked on the press in practice more than
he has the last two years, and UF has used
its athleticism and newfound endurance to
help force almost 18 turnovers per game


this season.
"We ran on offense last year, but we
were not able to pressure the ball like I
would have liked to just because we had
a lack of depth," Donovan said. "You get
better when the defense transitions back
and they don't let the offense score in the
first five seconds."
Due to a combination of injuries and
players who weren't capable of running


the floor, UF wasn't able to do that kind
of work on the transition game in practice
last year.
Donovan pointed to guard Ray Ship-
man, center Kenny Kadji and former UF
players Eloy Vargas and Allan Chaney as
not being in good enough shape last sea-
son.
Even point guard Erving Walker, who
has recently drawn considerable praise

offseason conditioning. Florida plays at Jacksonville tonight.


from Donovan for his tireless work at the
front of the press, wasn't ready to do all
his coach needed from him.
As a result, Donovan was lucky if he
could work on transition defense and of-
fense without taking a break something
the Gators have executed with ease on the
court this year but weren't even capable of
doing in scrimmages last year.
"We had a tough time putting all that
together at the same time," Donovan said.
"We've gotten better, and we can have
more competitive practices because I think
guys are better conditioned."
Unlike last season, Donovan has a full
roster of players who can keep practices
competitive and run the floor, as Walker,
Shipman and the rest of the returning
Gators whipped themselves into shape
over the summer under the supervision of
strength and conditioning coach Matt Her-
ring.
Even this year's freshman class started
in far better condition than the previous
group. Kenny Boynton, Erik Murphy and
Rod Tishman didn't need to be eased into
practice, allowing Donovan to finally fo-
cus on coaching basketball as opposed to
coaching effort.
"I feel like the bottom part of our team
this year is in much better shape to con-
tribute to make practice more competi-
tive," Donovan said. "They understand
now the commitment that they need to
make physically to be in that type of shape
to play that way."

I know that rooting for under-

But my goal here isn't for a

really believe in anyway.

getting there is to create the big-

show and all of those things."
However, the Gators still showed no post-
season nerves as they stormed out to an early
5-1 lead.
They never trailed in the first set thanks
to the play of sophomores Kristy Jaeckel and
Colleen Ward, who each had five kills each in
the opening frame.
"There was only one ball where (Ward) hit
out of bounds when I thought she made a bad
decision," Wise said.
"When we started this season, we would
have been thrilled if it was one per game, and
so what we are seeing is the maturing process
of Colleen as a hitter."
Ward finished with 14 kills to help lead
the team to a .476 hitting effi-
S ciency, the highest percentage
the Gators have ever hit in the
NCAA Tournament.
Volleyball "I thought our passing was
great tonight, and it allowed
us to get the ball to a bunch
of different people," sophomore setter Kelly
Murphy said.
"We just stayed patient and made really
smart decisions with our hitting."
Wise decided to use the one-setter offense
Thursday, which worked successfully again.
Murphy dished out 31 assists and kept the
defense off balance with seven kills.
College of Charleston's outside hitter Katie
Robinson, who went to Oak Hall High School
in Gainesville, did not enjoy her homecoming
as much as she would have liked.
"I was pretty nervous," Robinson said. "I
knew that a ton of people were going to be
here but I just tried to block that out of my
mind."
She finished with a -.286 hitting efficiency
in the loss to the Gators.
Before UF's match, FIU (32-3) outlasted


Miami (18-13) in a five-set thriller 3-2 (25-16,
20-25, 22-25, 27-25, 15-11).
Now the Gators will move on to host the
Golden Panthers in the second round tonight
at 7 p.m.
"FIU is a really tough matchup for us,"
Wise said. "I think they will be one of the best
second-round opponents we have ever faced
at home."

UF's Kelly Murphy sets the ball during the
Gators' 3-0 win against College of Charles-

Murphy had 31 assists, seven kills and three
aces in the match.


Now, on to the picks!
In first with a record of 67-62 is Bobby "Don't put that in your mouth"
Callovi, who is packing his shoes full of Play-Doh out of fear he won't meet
the height requirement to ride MARTA this weekend.
Also in first and a victim of alphabetical order at 67-62 is Kyle "Tiger
made the right choice" Maistri, who'd gladly ram his Crown Vic into a fire
hydrant to spend a night with either of Tiger Woods' side dishes.
In third with his head just below water at 64-65 is the Tampa Tribune's
Mike "What do you think, Christmas Pez Bear?" DiFerdinando, who placed
his newest little friend on his desk in class. Not that little friend ...
Next, at 63-66 is the Gainesville Sun's Ed "Not now chief, I'm in the zone"
Aschoff, whose three-hour flex session caused him to get his picks in late.
Tied with Ed is Mike "You guys wouldn't know a fun Thursday night if it
bit you in the butt" McCall, who thinks tipping cows with his buddies from
Ag. school in Tifton is worth leaving Gainesville 12 hours earlier.
In sixth at 57-72 is the Miami Herald's Joe "The first rule of Carlos Dun-
lap is, you do not talk about Carlos Dunlap" Goodman, who woke up with
a dead horse's head in his sheets. That's what you get for asking questions
UF's media relations department doesn't want you to ask.
Next, at 56-73 is the Florida Times Union's Mike "What does insensitive
mean?" DiRocco, who once described a look of shock as, "She looked like
she just walked out of the Twin Towers."
Settling nicely into eighth at 55-74 is the Palm Beach Post's Ben "I couldn't
outmuscle a hoard of tween girls to get close enough to touch Tebow on his
last Gator Walk" Volin, who will be returning to his old stomping grounds
in Atlanta this week. Too bad his old friends won't recognize him beneath all
the orange-and-blue paint and eye-black strips.
In ninth at 54-75 is the Orlando Sentinel's Jeremy "Just give me the favor-
ites" Fowler, who has done so poorly lately that he decided he has a better
chance of not finishing last by not picking games at all.
In last with a record of 53-76 is Phil "Charlie Weis" Kegler, who plans on
ducking the media after he finishes the season in last place. Grow up, Kegs.

Healed Howell gives depth in IMs


STHE SOPHOMORE
RETURNED TO COMPETITION
TWO WEEKS AGO.

By TONI-ANN MILLER
Alligator Writer

After suffering an injury early
this season, Florida sophomore Bri-
an Howell returned to competition
in November and has made the best
of his opportunity since.
Howell broke his hand while
hanging out with his teammates
after practice and was confined to
a splint for three weeks, unable to
swim.
In his first tournament back, the
South Carolina Invitational two
weeks ago, Howell showed he had
the potential to be one of UF's elite
individual medley swimmers.
He was fourth in the men's 200-
yard IM and second in the 400 IM.
Howell said his performance in
that first meet was close to what he
expected after not competing in the
earlier meets this season.
"The amount of training that I'd
done and that being my first real
competition of the year, I can't say
I was disappointed," Howell said. "I


would've liked to swim faster, but it
was a good starting point."
On a team loaded with talented
athletes, Howell has managed to
put himself in the mix with the more
recognized names.
He swam the sixth-fastest time
(1:52.99) for UF this season in the
200 backstroke, and he owns the
fifth-fastest time (1:51.41) this year
in the 200 IM.
"There's definitely a lot of
pressure here because the
team is so good. If you don't
step up there's someone
else right behind you who'll
step up and do the job just
as (well) or better than you
could."
Brian Howell
UF sophomore swimmer

His most notable time this fall
came in the 400 IM, back in South
Carolina, where he swam a 3:56.21,
placing him behind junior Conor
Dwyer for the second-fastest time in
the event.
The sophomore said he has dealt
with the pressure of swimming for


one of the nation's top programs,
and the depth of the team is a driv-
ing factor for the team's improve-
ment.
"There's definitely a lot of pres-
sure here because the team is so
good," Howell said. "If you don't
step up, there's someone else right
behind you who'll step up and do
the job just as (well) or better than
you could.
"A spot is never guaranteed, and
that's why everyone keeps getting
better."
When UF's fourth-ranked men
and fifth-ranked women compete
in the Georgia Invitational today
through Sunday, Howell said he'll
be looking to get more race experi-
ence, but coach Gregg Troy will be
looking to the sophomore to see just
what he can do.
This is UF's last meet until Janu-
ary.
"He's one of the guys we're es-
pecially going to watch this week-
end because he's got some good
talent," Troy said. "He didn't get to
race quite as often as we would like
this fall, but he did do a good job of
recovering and staying on track, so
he's one that we really want to see
some more racing from."

UF swimming coach Gregg Troy is excited to see what sopho-
more Brian Howell can do now that he's back from injury.


Tebow, UF's offense will dictate whether Gators return to BCS title game


This one is on the offense.
For 12 games, Florida's defense has
dominated. The Gators have suffocated
top-notch run games, stifled quality passing
attacks and had a knack for big plays in big
moments.
The unit deserves a helping hand Saturday
against Alabama in the SEC Championship
Game.
During that same stretch, UF's offense has
been almost entirely underwhelming. Sure,
there were 40-point outbursts against Ken-
tucky and Georgia, and yes, Florida State's
defense made everything look A-OK.
Maybe it is, or maybe it's not. Honestly,
I've been waiting for Saturday to see just how
much the offense has grown during the year.
It's hard to judge a unit when it can literally do
next to nothing and win because of an out-of-


this-world defense and a great punter.
The numbers have gotten better, but is that
a true sign of development? I'm just not so
sure.
It'd be ludicrous for me to suggest the of-
fense is going to carry the defense Saturday.
That simply won't happen. A terrible game by
the defense would result in a loss to Alabama
nearly 100 percent of the time.
Thankfully for the Gators, the odds of
that happening are close to zero. But Charlie
Strong's defense might not be able to give UF
the overwhelming advantage it has all season.
This SEC Championship Game is going to
feature two great defenses going against one
another, with the loser being the first one to
blink. It's a near-guarantee that Florida's de-
fense will come ready to play, but Tim Tebow
is going to have to lead his team down the


field for a few iconic
drives just like last year
.i if the Gators are going
4 to win.
Fewhavementioned
this week that Percy
Phil Kegler Harvin didn't play in
Phil on the Hill this game a year ago, so
pkegler@alligatororg offensively, UF is only
down Louis Murphy.
Riley Cooper caught
the game-clinching touchdown an inch off the
ground last year in Atlanta. Jeff Demps scored
the go-ahead touchdown early in the fourth
quarter on a 1-yard run.
Demps and Chris Rainey have to be bigger
factors this year. Rainey was hurt last time,
and Demps finished with 53 yards on 14 car-
ries, an average of 3.8 yards per carry.


Aaron Hemandez will have to continue to
be a playmaker. Alabama allowed a few dev-
astating shovel passes to Hemandez last year.
I wouldn't expect that to happen again, but
Tebow will need Hemandez to get free down
the field.
Of course, no discussion of the offense is
complete without mentioning Tebow. He led
two fourth-quarter drives to win last year, and
those 15 minutes of football are still mentioned
often. He will probably have to pull some kind
of heroics again.
Then again, I learned long ago not to doubt
Tebow. He gave the world his promise, and
22 games later, he still hasn't walked off the
field a loser.
For him to keep that going Saturday, it will
have to be his offense that makes the differ-
ence.

The previous three teams that won the national
championship finished the season with at least one
loss.
Neither No. 1 Florida nor No. 2 Alabama can af-
ford to suffer its first loss of the season Saturday
and still expect to play in the BCS National Cham-
pionship Game.
With the winner heading to Pasadena, Calif., to
play for the national title, Saturday's Southeastern
Conference Championship Game in Atlanta will
have the feel of a national championship semifinal.
The Gators and Crimson Tide are No. 1 and No.
2 in the BCS rankings and were ranked first and
fifth, respectively, in the preseason AP poll.
UF coach Urban Meyer has already been to two
SEC Championship Games and two BCS National
Championship Games as a Gator, but he said he
couldn't think of a bigger game that he has been a
part of than the upcoming one.
"Now that we're here, I can feel (the national
championship-like atmosphere)," Meyer said.
"People were trying to make it that type of game
back in September. I think if I remember right, both
teams were picked to make it to the championship
game."
The matchup was set after Alabama's 24-15 vic-
tory over LSU on Nov. 7, but the talk of a rematch
of last year's SEC Championship Game started
soon after the last one finished.
Both teams had key players depart after last sea-
son, mostly on the offensive side of the ball.
Florida lost the services of wide receivers Percy
Harvin and Louis Murphy, and Alabama no longer
has quarterback John Parker Wilson, running back
Glen Coffee or left tackle Andre Smith. The Gators
returned all of their starters on defense, and the
Crimson Tide brought back nine of their 11 before
losing star linebacker Dont'a Hightower to a knee
injury early this year.
The experience of the defenses has been obvi-
ous as both units have dominated opposing teams


most of the season.
Alabama's and Florida's defenses are ranked in
the top eight in the nation in total, scoring, rushing
and passing defense.
The most points either team let up in a game was
the 24 Alabama allowed Virginia Tech to score, and
the most UF has given up was 20 to Arkansas.
The two units have different styles of play, but
they still share certain traits of a great defense.
"There's a lot of similarities, both great defens-
es. There are similarities with our defense. A lot of
team speed," quarterback Tim Tebow said. "They
run for the ball, make big plays."
Despite finishing the regular season undefeated,
neither team's season was without drama.
Alabama trailed heading into the fourth quarter
in three games this season and was leading by no
more than seven points when the last quarter be-
gan in two other games, including a 12-10 win over
Tennessee that needed two blocked
field-goal attempts by nose guard
Terrence Cody.
Florida never entered the fourth
Football quarter trailing in any game this
season, but four games were within
a touchdown at the start of the final
period, including a 23-20 win over Arkansas that
required a 27-yard field goal by Caleb Sturgis.
The Gators also dealt with a new off-the-field
storyline almost every week and have another one
this week with the recent arrest and suspension of
starting defensive end Carlos Dunlap.
Junior corerback Joe Haden said the goal was
not to go undefeated but to get to the SEC Cham-
pionship Game because Meyer did not want the
team to feel like the season was a failure if they
lost a game early on. While both teams' goal was
not to finish undefeated but win a championship,
they will now have to finish without a blemish to
accomplish that aspiration.
"If you lose a game, then was the season a fail-
ure? He didn't want that to be the case," Haden
said. "Now we're sitting here undefeated. SEC
Championship, we win this, we go on to the na-
tional championship."
