Police nab 100s


during-weekend


By JESSICA RIFFEL
Alligator Writer
jriffel@alligator.org

There were 27 arrests at
Saturday's UF-FSU football
game, which is more than any
other home game this season,
according to the University
Police Department.
Twenty-one football
fans were arrested at Ben
Hill Griffin Stadium for
possession of alcohol,
but Gainesville Police
Department reported 180
alcohol violations on game
day, said GPD spokesman
Keith Kameg.
Possession of alcohol is
a misdemeanor offense. The
defendant usually pays a fine
and court costs, but that's
"up to a judge," Kameg said.
Ten UF students were ar-
rested at the football game.


FSU 7 UF34




REDEMPTION


"It was a little quieter be-
cause of Thanksgiving, but
by and large, FSU is our busi-
est weekend of the football
season," Kameg said.
A few people were ar-
rested for scalping tickets,
Kameg said.
PgDbV c He said police
afety officers were
busy all weekend
patrolling neighborhoods and
parties, but there were no ma-
jor incidents.
In addition to the arrests,
University Police ejected 87
people from the game due to
intoxication, disorderly con-
duct, occupying the wrong
seat, standing on the bleach-
ers and other offenses, ac-
cording to the report.
The Tennessee football
game was the only game
with nearly as many arrests
at 25, eight of them students.


Speaker to talk sex
By IVETTE MENDEZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

After a holiday weekend at home with family, students are returning to
UF to hear about sex.
The Reitz Union Board is sponsoring "The J-Spot: A Sex Educator Tells
All," with speaker Jay Friedman.
The certified sex educator will make his presentation
about sex and relationships today at 6 p.m. in the Reitz
Union Auditorium.
Friedman, who was sought out by the Comedy
Lecture Committee, aims to present the information in a
way that is entertaining for students.
"We've been talking about him all semester," said
Katie Newman, a member of the public relations commit-
Friedman tee for the board.
The free event will address a variety of topics, includ-
ing AIDS, G-spots and the future of sex.
Friedman has been lecturing on the college circuit for more than a decade
about topics considered taboo.
By the end of the show, people don't want him to stop, Newman said.
"From what I've heard, he's amazing," she said.
Friedman is also a writer and the host of a Seattle radio talk show.
After the lecture, the board will show the movie "March of the Penguins."
The penguin documentary is about dating, and the board wanted the
movie topic to match the topic of the lecture, Newman said.

Gators finish season perfect at home


By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org ,

The Swamp cheer flared outward like the external
rings of a Bloomin' Onion.
And after two Outback Bowl representatives
dressed in gravy-colored sport coats smiled past
their 20-second ovation, the biggest ramification of
UF's 34-7 rout of Florida State became as clear as
Australian ocean water: grab the steak sauce, because
the Gators are.back in Outback Bowl contention.
"They helped themselves a lot today by winning,"
said Bruce Poli, Outback Bowl Chairman. "This puts
them right there in the picture."
With one swift blow to Bobby Bowden's jugular,
the Gators salvaged their season Saturday. They
completed a sweep of rivals Tennessee, Georgia
and Florida State for the first time since 1995. Of
course, it still bothers Coach Urban Meyer that he


"I think it's our biggest win. Why? I think
the Swamp was electric, and I think our
players take great pride in that."
Urban Meyer
UF football coach

cannot prepare for a date with Louisiana State in the
Southeastern Conference championship, but Meyer
has clearly taken notes from the movie "Gladiator."
Win over the crowd and you will win freedom in
Meyer's case, freedom from criticism.
"I think it's our biggest win," Meyer said. "Why? I
think the Swamp was electric, and I think our players
take great pride in that."
By the game's end, UF fans chanted his approval.

Shoppers go wild on Friday
By ANNA SUGGS Although the Saturday before Christmas is the
Alligator Contributing Writer busiest day for The Oaks Mall, stores typically used


Whether enticed by the first holiday sales of
the season or wanting to get away from family,
an estimated 145 million Americans barely put
away their leftovers before going shopping this
weekend.
Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, is an
old term that means the day when retailers go from
red to black in sales, said Becky Bumgarner, senior
marketing director at The Oaks Mall. Companies
previously used red ink to indicate losses, while
black represented a profit.
According to a National Retail Federation sur-
vey, the 145 million people who went shopping
this Thanksgiving weekend spent more than $27.8
billion. The federation expects about $439.5 billion
to be spent throughout this holiday season.
"This will go down as one of the earliest and
most promotional Black Fridays in history,"
National Retail Federation President and CEO
Tracy Mullin said in a news release. "Many stores
opened earlier than ever before, and retailers
offered unbelievable sales and discounts to get
people shopping."


"door-buster tactics" to attract customers for the
weekend with advertised sales, Bumgirner said.
The mall anticipates about four million shop-
pers this holiday season, she said.
"Many stores opened earlier than
ever before, and retailers offered un-
believable sales and discounts to get
people shopping."
Tracy Mullin
National Retail Federation President and CEO

Electronics like iPods and jewelry are hot sellers
at The Oaks Mall this year, she said.
Pam Collins, a 37-year-old phlebotomist, was in
line at JCPenney on Friday. She said she and her
mother get to the mall to shop early morning Black
Friday sales every year, but this year they didn't
arrive until noon.
She said she found a lot of great deals on dishes,
clothes, purses, perfumes and lotions. By 4 p.m.
they still hadn't stopped for lunch.
"It's like you're at a theme park," she said.

McCullough: Gators want bowl in Tampa


"-a


FOOTBALL, from page 1

But instead of bellowing "live,"
it was his name they hooted
- "Urban Meyer." Now, toward
the end of a season rockier than
any 6 G coaster, it is a Seminoles
blowout that allows The Gator
Nation to honestly say the ride
has not been that bad after all.
And how about this not-so-
subtle detail for kicks: UF finishes
the season undefeated at home -
the only school in the SEC to do so
- for the first time since 2000. The
Swamp, at least for the moment,
has indeed been reclaimed.
"Ever since I've been here,
we've always talked about get-
.ting back the Swamp," center
Mike Degory said. "I know for us
seniors, we were really challenged
with that. There's some good
things to look back on."
As for the bowl game outlook,
here's how it breaks down.
There are three teams, but just
two spots for the Peach Bowl and
Outback Bowl.
While the Capital One Bowl


committee traditionally selects the
loser of the SEC title game, there's
a solid chance they could nab
Auburn instead. In that scenario,
the loser of the Georgia-LSU game
would play in either the Outback
or Peach Bowl. If UF doesn't make
the cut, they'll head to Shreveport,
La., for the Independence Bowl.
The Gators
(8-3, 5-3 SEC)
can only hope
they impressed
the Outback
Bowl represen-
tatives enough
for the game to
pass on former
McCullough UF coach Steve
Spurrier and his South Carolina
squad. The Gamecocks (7-4, 5-3
SEC) do sport one more loss than
the Gators, but some people feel
that Spurrier would create more
than enough fanfare in Tampa to
generate sufficient revenue.
"I love [OutbackSteakhouse's]
steaks and, their Bloomin'
Onions," senior linebacker Todd
McCullough said. "Hopefully
we'll get a chance to go and play
over there, because we haven't

won there in a while. We need to
show the people of Tampa what
we can do."
Based on Saturday's perfor-
mance, there is no reason why
the Outback Bowl wouldn't
grant the Gators serious consid-
eration.
UF terrorized the Seminoles
all game long, forcing four
turnovers and blocking a field
goal that resulted in a 52-yard
Reggie Lewis touchdown return.
Offensively, the Gators did not
blow anyone's mind. But they
didn't have to.
Quarterback Chris Leak over-
came several overthrows and an
interception to complete 19 of
28 passes for 211 yards and two
touchdowns.
Chad Jackson led the receiv-
ing corps, reeling in nine catches
for 97 yards and a touchdown.
Dallas Baker, who suffered a bro-
ken rib two weeks ago, played
through the injury and recorded
three receptions for 38 yards and
a touchdown.
"You couldn't ask for any-
thing more," Baker said. "It feels
great to get a win like this."

Editorial


Costly comforts

Students shouldn't bear

entire cost of bus service
College is naps in the afternoon. It's classes beginning
at 1 p.m. It's lazy weekends and crazy nights. It's our
last hurrah before we enter the professional workforce
and are forced to live by routines and rules.
But some UF students are thoroughly concerned with be-
ing able to visit campus anywhere at any time. They want the
option of studying, working and traveling every day of the
week, and Sunday bus service is the new plight of Student
Government.
We admit it: We told The Gator Party candidates to
champion this cause when they first got elected. We applaud
officials for acting so quickly. But additional research has
changed our minds about the whole thing.
We think the cause is noble enough. In this age of con-
venience, such an idea is attractive. What if, while living on
campus, we realize our long-awaited toga party is missing a
bushel of grapes and our roommate's car is broken? Thank
God there's Sunday bus service so we can make a three-hour
journey to Publix.
Of course, a small number of students actually will use
the service regularly.
But all students will have to pay for extended RTS
campus bus service, and the bill isn't cheap or necessary.
Furthermore, students will be paying for bus routes through
areas not densely populated by students. We'll be picking up
Gainesville's bill and handing residents a free service.
The Transportation Access Fee Committee discussed
getting a grant to cover the cost, and Chairman Bob Miller
inferred that Gainesville would begin to split the tab after a
couple of years.
But we need better assurances than maybes and proba-
blies. We need SG to fight for solid plans that don't add
indefinite and unnecessary fees to tuition.
In the SG elections at the beginning of the semester, both
parties promised to add this service. It's an appealing and
non-partisan idea.
However, a campaign flier doesn't outline the money
needed for such an undertaking.
Now more fees will likely be tacked on to our tuition to
pay for the service. How many times will you use it?
If the university is able to secure a grant, fine. If Gainesville
agrees to take up some of the costs within a short period of
time, go ahead.
But we shouldn't push the service by hiking up students'
----.a,.^l T'. ie o tha" or-ffoan t.....
Gainesville isn t a large city. bke wi get most people-
to most places. Americans are getting more and more over-
weight; we need the exercise.
To get student support, SG officials tend to offer new gifts
and conveniences. But we want them to research the idea
and constantly reconsider the options. Is the cost worth the
service?
Money is short all over; we don't need to add extra ser-
vices every year. We need to work on maintaining what
we've got.
The Board of Trustees, UF's highest governing body, will
decide whether to go ahead with these changes Friday. The
hiked fees likely will be approved. For the sake of students,
SG must work to ensure that the student body doesn't fund
the service forever.
But if SG really wants to revive a service that would
benefit all students, we have an idea that wouldn't cost any
money.
How about getting Gainesville to allow liquor sales on
Sunday? That's an obstacle that really gets in the way of our
college experience.

Guest column

Indictment disregards citizen's rights


he Bush administration has both sidestepped a
"Come to Jesus" moment before the U.S. Supreme
Court and nudged America closer to the despot's
door with the conveniently timed indictment of American
citizen and "dirty bomb" suspect Jose Padilla, held in
military custody for three years sans formal charges.
But contrary to earlier statements alleging the "en-
re artant" was letting radiological attacks in the
plotting other crimes with overseas targets.
Despite the new formal charges, the suspected terror-
ist's detention hearing should go on.
SOfficials seek to delay an accounting of conduct that
greatly overshadows any "-gate" American history has
produced by keeping intact a lower court's ruling, which
maddeningly allows the detention of citizens by an abso-
lutely powerful executive.
Padilla's defense argues the case should continue
because the former Chicagoan (or you) could at any
time be reclassified an enemy combatant and detained
indefinitely. But the administration is gambling that the
justices will decline to hear the case by indicting Padilla
before his appeal is heard by a high court.
It would be a miscarriage of justice to allow officials to
avoid this showdown with the Constitution just as some
Americans begin to wonder if that sacred instrument is
little more than Play-Doh.
In order for the government to deprive a citizen of life,
liberty or property, we expect that citizen will enjoy due
process regardless of reprehensibility. We assumed
that America was unlike the old Eastern bloc nations,
where secret police secretly arrested secret people for
secret reasons and secretly sent them to secret prisons
- forever.
But what happens when we assume? We discover
the CIA has a network of Soviet-era secret prisons in
Europe.


Justin Hemlepp So we stand, citizens with a
Speaking Out proud heritage of righting wrongs
and making good our evils, left
looking like asses because we de-
tain our own citizens incommunicado to protect free-
dom, and ship non-citizens off to...
Well, we don't know exactly. A CIA prison could be
nice, right? Even Gitmo is at the beach, which is just
bill denying them habeas corpus rights becomes law.
"Our influence in the world is directly affected by
our actions with respect to those we detain," wrote the
American Bar Association's president in a statement urg-
ing members to implore senators to reconsider the bill.
So, we must beg our legislators to uphold the
Constitution they were sworn to "support and defend
... against all enemies, foreign and domestic"? Who, or
what, have we become?
Our flagrant disregard for simple constitutional prin-
ciples is the surest sign that this "shining city on a hill"
has lost its luster, that our nation no longer holds the
moral high ground that the terrorists are winning.
As the world watches us backpedal from democratic
ideals, what legitimacy we bring to the table in market-
ing democracy abroad is criminally diminished. It could
be that our discarded credibility will land in the hands of
"evildoers" a danger comparable to handing Osama
a nuke.
Without that legitimacy, how can we expect to suc-
ceed in Iraq and Afghanistan?
How can we broker a lasting Middle East peace?
How can we -confront a growing China or a nuclear
Korea?
If we don't practice at home the principles we preach
abroad, what's the point?

Letters to the Editor
Treason is relative, changes with time
One would think that as a journalism
major, Andrew Bare ("Confederate flag is
a symbol of treason") would know that
treason, like just about everything else, is
relative.
Washington, Jefferson and our other
Founding Fathers chose to rebel against
England, which at the time was an act of
treason. The only reason these men are
viewed as heroes and not traitors is be-
cause they were on the winning side. Had
the Revolutionary War been lost, the only
people to remember the Founding Fathers
would be a handful of history buffs insisting
on honoring their forefathers despite the fact
that they were supporting a losing cause.
The same is true of Lee and other
Confederate heroes. They chose to defend
their homeland, which at the time was the
Confederate States of America. Whether
one considers the secession of the southern
states right or wrong is irrelevant.
Before he graduates, Mr. Bare should add
a few more history courses to his curricu-
lum. He might learn about Stephen Decatur,
a Revolutionary War hero who said, "Our
country, in her intercourse with foreign
nations, may she always be right, but our
country right or wrong." From 1861-65, the
state in which I was born was part of the
Confederate States of America, and during


that period, my forefathers served what, at
the time, was their country.
Although I served in the U.S. Navy, I am
proud of my Confederate forebears and will
continue to fly the Stars and Bars in their
honor. To Mr. Bare: Don't you dare call me,
or anyone else who has placed his life on the
line to protect your right to express your asi-
nine opinions, a traitor!
Lee Holloway
Jacksonville resident



Confederate soldiers deserve respect
I beg to differ on the subject of Andrew
Bare'sWednesday column. I cannot believe
that someone would write such an ignorant
column, and that a newspaper would actu-
ally print it.
The Confederate flag is not in any way a
symbol of treason or rebellion. My seventh
cousin, Robert E. Lee, one of the greatest
generals in American history, was not a trai-
tor, nor was Gen. Jackson or President Davis.
You know what they were? Patriots. How
dare you call them "traitors" or "re)eflious."
All of my grandfathers on every/side of my
family from Tennessee, Texas, Alabama,
Louisiana, Mississippi and Arkansas fought
in the Confederate army, not one of _them
owned slaves, and they weren't fighting


for slavery, either. The Confederate soldiers
were the true American patriots, fighting
for the principles, the morals and the rights
that their forefathers, like Thomas Jefferson,
George Washington and so many others,
fought for and believed in.
The South is my homeland, and my
grandfathers were all Confederate officers
and soldiers, so don't write things that be-
little them and what they fought for. The
Confederacy and its soldiers, whether white,
black, Hispanic, Native American, Jewish,
Irish or Scottish, all deserve honor, and boy
howdy, they're going to get it from me.
God Save Dixie.
Wes Hamilton
Clyde, Texas resident



Mascot offensive to Native Americans
It is apparent that the editorial staff and
cartoonist of the Alligator are unaware of
the issues involved in the abolishment of
mascots depicting Native Americans. This
issue is offensive to many persons native
and non-native alike, the Seminole Inc. of.
Florida excluded. Your cartoon is one of the
most blatant reasons that mascots should
not depict another culture. It implies that
the killing of Indians is OK; this is just one of
the issues that Native Americans find objec-


tionable. It is time that UF and the Alligator
stop promoting the attitude that it is all right
to encourage racist and violent behavior
, against Native Americans.
Jenni Otterson
Bell resident



Cartoon abandons tolerance, decency
Native Americans have a legitimate
right to some control over their public im-
age. How does the tradition of a college
sports team compare with the dignity of the
original American ethnic group? The team
should consider a different name. Adding to
the gross injustices Native Americans have
suffered, it's not necessary to poke fun in
this way.
Think of various other ethnic groups,
including your own, as a substitute for the
Native American in the cartoon. Do you
suppose other heritage groups would accept
the role without complaint? Not likely.
Some Americans scoff at "political cor-
rectness" or "being p.c." This encourages
people to abandon tolerance, common de-
cency and mutual respect. If we throw out
these qualities, we are preparing to throw
out civilization itself.
David Smith
Neptune Beach resident

FSU 7 UF34


Lineman Hand gets reception


UF tackle Randy Hand breaks away from FSU linebacker AJ. Nichol-
son for a 1-yard run in the third quarter of UF's 34-7 victory.


By ERIC ESTEBAN and
ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writers

Offensive tackle Randy Hand
won't be striking -Heisman poses
anytime soon, but his 1-yard rush
off a Leak lateral pass in the third
quarter was a first for the senior.
"That big 1-yard gain was a
big play," Meyer said jokingly.
"We felt like down there they
were really tightening up with
an excellent red-zone defense
and we thought we'd get them to
pursue the ball."
Meyer actually started offen-
sive lineman Phil Trautwein in
the tight end spot but didn't get
the ball.

SOMETHING SPECIAL: Florida
State's special teams came into
the Swamp on a hot streak, block-
ing three punts in two games.
Defensive tackle Marcus Thomas'
hand changed that in an instant.
The Gators were only up 7-0
when Gary Cismesia lined up
for a routine 44-yard field goal.
At the snap, Thomas hopped on
a Seminole offensive lineman
before pushing forward and de-
flecting the ball into the backfield
where cornerback Reggie Lewis
picked it up in stride returning it
52 yards for a touchdown.
"When I saw all that grass in
front of me, and I looked up and
saw no one was behind me, my


thing was just get into the end
zone," Lewis said.
It was Thomas' second
blocked kick in as many games,
and the first time in UF recorded
history that the Gators had re-
turned a blocked field goal for a
touchdown.
"Play of the day," Meyer said.
"I thought our special teams was
outstanding."

WHOLE LOTTA LOVE: While it
wasn't a record crowd, the holi-
day weekend didn't keep more
than 90,000 fans away from the
Swamp.
Although many students were
trying to sell tickets throughout
the week online so they could re-
main on vacation, numerous fans
were trying to buy scalped tickets
outside the Swamp Saturday af-
ternoon, and 90,669 ended up at-
tending the game, good for third
best in Florida Field history.

BACK-TO-BACK: UF's victory
marked the first time in nearly
20 years that the Gators defeated
Florida State in back-to-back
regular season games. The Gators
defeated FSU six straight times
from 1979-86 and hasn't racked
up consecutive victories in the
regular season series since.
The Gators did beat the
Seminoles twice in a row after
defeating FSU in the Sugar Bowl
to win the 1996 national cham-


pionship and then beating No. 2
FSU in the 1997 regular-season
showdown in Gainesville. -A

MUST SEE TV: Though the stakes
might have-been lower- in this
year's Florida-Florida State game
than in past clashes between the
two bitter in-state rivals, the
game was still shown to a na-
tional television audience arid
beyond.
Throughout Saturday's
CBS broadcast, U.S. troops in
Afghanistan were shown watch-
ing the game overseas.
Many of the troops didn't just
show support for their nation.
Orange and blue and garnet
and gold replaced the tradi-
tional camouflaged gear as the
troops cheered on the Gators and
Seminoles.

RISING: After defeaitng FSU,
the Gators jumped up two spots
in the AP Top 25 to No. 17. The
Seminoles dropped out of the
rankings following UF's 34-7
rout.

THIS AND THAT: After the game,
Meyer announced that walk-on
place kicker Chris Hetland had
earned a scholarship. Hetland, a
junior, converted on field goals
of 34 and 44 yards against FSU ...
Linebacker Brandon Siler made
his Southeastern Conference-
leading seventh fumble recovery.


Secondary overcomes recent sloppiness'

prove.
In a season deemed Southern
Reconstruction, four SEC teams
finished with two or less confer-
ence losses, and a fifth South
Carolina has three blemishes
of its own, but managed to de-
feat the Gators to get a heads up
in the bowl sweepstakes.
Here's further proof that
the bowl system doesn't work
and the BCS needs to remove
the letter C in its title. A great
Auburn team will be left out
of a top bowl game, FSU is a
single Virginia Tech upset away
from the Orange Bowl (ex-
tremely unlikely, but stranger
things have happened) and
an attractive UF team that
has some national appeal will
likely celebrate the holidays in
Shreveport.
Still, it didn't have to end
like this. There's no excuse for
losing to an average Gamecocks
team, even if they were led by
the Goldeft Orr. And UF had
about 10 chances to get back in
the LSU game.
Then again, the Gators
were fortunate to play a D.J.


Shockley-less Georgia team, a
and let's ot forget tie exces-
sive celebration call against
Vanderbilt that prevented a
two-point attempt and possible
Commodores shocker.
As the distraught Bobby
Bowden will tell you, the scan-
dalous Charley Pell began his
coaching career at UF with a
0-10-1 record, only to turn the
Gators into national contenders
several years later.
Immediately following
Saturday's game, several top
recruits jumped on the Urban
Mobile. Meyer's future looks
bright. Then again, the future
seems equally as promising
at Georgia, South Carolina,
Alabama, Auburn and LSU, and
even Tennessee will rise again.
If the Gators want to do
more than compete, they will
need perfection. There's no rea-
son to think Meyer can't get it
done eventually. But as Auburn
painfully learned last year, not
even perfection guarantees a
title.
At least you can tease your
friends at FSU for the entire off-
season, right? And if all goes
right, you can kiss your sister
after the Independence Bowl.

and the rest of the secondary were burned in two .
previous games.
"That's a big thing. I didn't know that," Lewis
said. "That makes it even better.
"I don't know why we were playing [so poorly in
the last two games]. We had to prove ourselves and
that's what we did. We came out and proved that
we still have a hell of a good defense."
Starting cornerback Dee Webb, who has been
inconsistent throughout the season and his career,
also stepped up in Brown's absence, racking up six
tackles and forcing a fumble.


IrM*ke Ar l -- e1--5 1 L -11V,, u
Gator," Meyer said.
"He's one of those guys everyone says has po-
tential. Well, potential is an ugly world in athletics.
He played great tonight, I really admired the way
he played."
The one-thing UF's defense didn't achieve was
recording the shutout the entire unit had strived
for all year. They came close, holding the Seminoles
scoreless until a touchdown with 6:35 remaining in
the game gave FSU its 7 points.
"I wanted it bad, there's nothing like a goose
egg," defensive end Jeremy Mincey said. "We didn't
get it, but we won and it was a good victory, a pretty
victory, and I'm proud of that much."


Recruits want to bring prominence back

in my commitment was definitely
the comfort level and my relation-
ships with the coaches and the
players and just the university in
general."
Fayson is looking forward to
contributing early for the Gators.
"They're going to find ways to
get the ball in my hands," Fayson
said. "I just want to come in and
blend in with the rest of the team
and help out where I can."
Through recruiting camps
and visits, many of the prospects


that UF is recruiting have formed
close friendships.
"When we first started this
process we all thought that it
would be great if we all could go
to the same school," Fayson said.
"But we didn't put any pressure
on each other
Jacques Rickerson, a 5-foot-10,
180-pound cornerback out of St.
Augustine, hopes to come in and
help fill a position that is thin.
"I think the deciding factor
was being able to come in and
play early," Rickerson said.
Bryan Thomas, a 6-foot-2, 192-
pound prospect out of Zephyrhills,


also made a verbal commitment to
play for the Gators and is project-
ed to either play safety or receiver
at the college level.
The influx of new talent to the
football team will play a crucial
role in the program's long-term
success as the Gators attempt to
become an elite SEC team again. ;-
"I keep thinking back and
Hornsby and I talk all the time
about Jacquez Green and those
guys with Coach Spurrier and
all those SEC championships,"
Fayson said. "We want to get
Florida football back to where it
used to be."

FOOTBALL

Offense comes up big


By IAN FISHER
Alligator Staff Writer
ifisher@alligator.org

Through all the criticism, through
all the questions of Chris Leak run-
ning UF's new offense, Coach Urban,
Meyer stuck with his quarterback, not
wavering after Leak struggled earlier
in the season.
"You're not going to like what
I'm about to say, but Chad.
Jackson can get a lot better.
Chad Jackson is still learning
how to play wide receiver."
Urban Meyer
UF football coach

On Saturday, Meyer's own daugh-
ter Nicole was wearing a t-shirt with
"Leak" and "12" plastered across the
back.
Perhaps the shirt brought Leak
some luck, because Meyer said it was
Leak that won the game for UE.
Leak passed for an efficient 211
yards and two touchdowns on 19-of-
28 passing.
"Chris Leak has been through
a lot," Meyer said. "He has been
through a lot of ups and downs. That
was a big-time win. A lot of people say
he's never really won a game. I really
felt lik e stepped up the Tennessee
game and did as much as anybody to
win that game, and I felt that way out
there tonight."
On the receiving end of many of


Leak's passes was go-to receiver Chad
Jackson, who finished with nine catch-
es for 97 yards and a touchdown. He
has caught a pass in 23 straight games
and a touchdown in three straight.
Jackson now has 81 catches on the
season, seven short of the UF record
set by Carlos Alvarez in 1969. Jackson
still has the bowl game to match or
break the record.
That being said, Meyer was criti-
cal of Jackson, as he has been all year.
Jackson has never made Meyer's
Champion's Club, despite leading the
team with 11 touchdowns.
"You're not going to like what I'm
about to say, but Chad Jackson can
get a lot better," Meyer said. "Chad
Jackson is still learning how to play
wide receiver."
Receiver Jemalle Cornelius had
two diving catches one for 23 yards,
the other for nine. Leak said after the
game that he just has to get the ball
anywhere near Cornelius for him to
make a play.
Dallas Baker also added a receiving
touchdown.
Despite all the positives on offense,
Meyer said it could have been a lot bet-
ter. Leak overthrew receivers all night,
and the one interception he made
came on an overthrow.
"You even saw tonight that there
were a lot of plays that could've been
made," Meyer said, adding that Leak
misfired on some of them. "Chad
Jackson got behind the defense once
or twice. We're still not a big-play of-
fense. Our longest play today was 33
yards and that was Tate Casey when
he fumbled the ball."

ING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.

By BRYAN APP
Alligator Staff Writer
bapp@alligator.org

Dee Webb hadn't received the
memo.
He didn't hear the news that this
year's Florida-Florida State rivalry
didn't mean a thing.
With the Gators out of contention
for a Southeastern Conference title and
an outside shot at the Outback Bowl
offering as the game's greatest reward,
the UF junior cornerback found a
reason greater than any to defeat the
Seminoles: Vernell Brown.
In an emotionally charged locker
room before Saturday's rivalry, Webb
stood before his teammates and dedi-
cated his performance-to the injured-
senior cornerback.
And while Brown, who suffered a
broken leg against Vanderbilt on Nov.
5, witnessed his Swamp finale on the
sideline, it was Webb who played like it
was his last game, forcing a fumble and
recording six tackles.
But it was the least Webb could do
to send Brown and UF's nine other
scholarship seniors who weathered
heartaches and a coaching change dur-
ing recent seasons out in style.


"Tss ,1-4- W.o .11 a tknot _said
senior linebacker Todd McCullough in
appreciation of Webb. "It's people like
Vernell Brown. This whole senior class,
a lot of these guys were told they never
could do it.
"To me, that's what it's all about.
having each other's back and being one
big family."
Though Urban Meyer's inaugural
season in Gainesville might have fallen
short of the expectations of some, the
coach considers such acts of camarade-
rie a good sign.
"The reason he played so hard
tonight was simply for Vernell Brown
because Vernell Brown always does
everything right," said Meyer, who has
called Brown the face of UF football.
"Dee at times maybe doesn't do every-
thing .right, but he played for Vemell
Brown.
"If that came from the heart, we
got things going in the right direction
a little bit."
It's a direction that Gators seniors
like Mincey, Mike Degory, Randy Hand
and Jarvis Herring won't be around to
witness first-person, but one they'll
gladly take pride in initiating.
"We opened up the gates for a big-
time program, and I'm proud to be a
part of it," Mincey said. "We've got
a bunch of talented guys, so look for-
ward to the future because the Swamp
has risen again."


* UF ENTERS NCAA TOURNAMENT
AS NO. 8 SEED IN OMAHA REGION.

By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Writer

Eager to discover their NCAA tourna-
ment fate, the No. 4 UF volleyball team
performed what Coach. Mary Wise jokingly
deemed a miracle.
Traveling home after sweeping two
weekend matches in Denver, the team
convinced the Chili's near their gate at the
airport to change the television station from
football to the NCAA volleyball tournament
selection show on ESPNews.
That miracle turned out to be unfulfill-
ing, however. Rushed onto the plane, the
team did not learn their fate until shortly
before takeoff.

Gators were named the eighth seed in this
year's tournament and will host the first
two rounds, beginning Thursday.
'UF (30-2) will take on Florida Atlantic
(29r2), the champions of the Atlantic Sun
Conference, in the opening round of the
tournament. Kansas State (20-10) and Mid-
Eastern Athletic Conference champion
Florida A&M (22-5) will also square off
Thursday in the O'Connell Center.


The second round match will take place
on Friday.
"What we learned last year is that being
right now we are thrilled to be one of the 16
teams that gets to play at home," Wise said.
Last season, the Gators lost in the second
round to Stanford.
"Florida's probably going to be a team
that has a little bit to prove in this tour-
nament," ESPN volleyball analyst Cathy
Nelson said. "They are very good at home
but last year they did lose to Stanford, the
eventual champion.
"I think Florida will be motivated to do
a great job and get out of
this region."
With a surprising total
of six teams from the SEC
making the field, only
the Big 12 will send more
teams to the tournament.
"If you had told me
Wise just a few years ago that
in the 2005 season we'd
get six teams in, I'm not sure I would have
believed it," Wise said. "Credit the talent
and the coaches in the league."
Despite being ranked fourth in the
country in the AVCA poll, the No. 8 seed
awarded to the Gators puts them in the
Omaha Regional a region topped by No.
1 seed Nebraska.
But the Gators will not get caught look-
ing head, Wise said, and the team is just
excited about the opportunity to play the
opening rounds at home.
"It's one more chance for our fans to see

Brooks propels Gators to blowout


* FRESHMAN SPARKS EASY
WIN WITH FIVE 3-POINTERS.

By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Writer

Sha Brooks didn't have the
green light on Sunday, but she
shot the lights out anyway.
UF's star freshman guard
drained five 3-pointers in the first
nine minutes of the Gators' 85-56
blowout victory of Stetson at the
O'Connell Center.
She looked well on her way
to breaking the Gators' single-
game record of eight threes set by
Bridget Pettis, but a runaway win
kept her on the bench for much of
the second half.
Her spark led the Gators to a
49-23 halftime lead, and Brooks
only attempted one 3-pointer
in the second half of the home
opener.
Brooks, who led the team with
19 points, didn't show the same
accuracy from long range in prac-
tice, where the team goes through
the "green light" drill.
To complete the exercise suc-
cessively, the player must make
25 3-pointers in two minutes from
different spots on the court.
Brooks didn't make the "green
light" club this week, fessing up
in the post-game news confer-
ence.


"All of our guards have been
in it," UF coach Carolyn Peck
said. "It's a matter of having to
keep doing it each week to stay
in it."
Had Brooks practiced against
Stetson's zone defense, maybe
she would have stayed in the club

another week.
She scored 8 of the first 10
points for UF (3-1), including two
threes in a span of 47 seconds to
put the Gators up 10-1.
"They had confidence in me,"
Brooks said. -"Overall we did
pretty good finding me because
I was open."
After Sarah Lowe hit a three,
Brooks spotted up two more
times from behind the arc in less
than a minute to make the score
19-4.
Her final three of the game
came with 11:36 left in the first
half. After that Stetson finally
cooled her down, and Brooks fin-
ished 5 of 7 on 3-point shooting in
the game.


"Prior to the ball game wp
knew she was a solid player and
she had the capability of knock-
ing down threes," Stetson coach
Dee Romine said. "She was
just knocking them down from
WNBA range."
Brooks got most of her looks
because the Hatters focused on
the inside presence of Brittany
Davis and Dalila Eshe, who com-
bined for nine assists.
"Sha did a very good job of
knocking down open shots," Peck
said. "Our team did a good job of
finding her. 'When we execute our
offense, Brittany and Dalila inside
are going to attract two people.
When that happened Sha did a
good job of stepping into the open
gaps against the zone."
The win came after UF's
first loss of the season, an 82-
76 setback at Florida State on
Wednesday where Brooks went 3
of 6 from behind the arc.
"It's a confidence booster com-
ing off of the loss the other night,"
said Eshe,. who led the Gators
with 21 points against FSUJ. "Our
concentration was boxing out
and we did out-rebound them. I
think we just wanted to focus on
improving what we were lacking
in the previous game."
UF travels to Charlotte on
Wednesday for a 6:00 p.m.
matchup.

I FSU trash talk inspired UF


Defensive plays sealed win


By FARZAD SAFI
Alligator Staff Writer
fsafi@alligator.org

In the week leading up to the
Florida State game, Coach Urban
Meyer believed that his offense
needed "big plays" in order for
the Gators to win.
But it wasn't Meyer that neces-
sarily motivated the Gators.
After UF's loss to South
Carolina two weeks ago, FSU run-
ning back Lorenzo Booker said
that the Gators did not even be-
long on the same field with FSU.
"It's personal when you talk
trash to somebody and I took
Booker's comments personally,"
Siler said. "I think half of the emo-
tion we had out there was from
the disrespect they showed us."
Booker finished with only four
yards on six carries and had Siler
to deal with after every carry.
I "Whenever anybody talks
trash, before the game I remind
them of the quote they said every
time I hit them," Siler said.
"I'm not going to sit here and
say that FSU had a great offense,"
Siler said. "For them to come and
rip us apart before the game and
for us to go out and whoop them,
I'm not going to show them any
respect all."
So in Saturday's 34-7 romp at


the Swamp, a motivated defense
and special teams made big play
after big play.
While Meyer wasn't com-
pletely satisfied with hiu offense'
execution against the Seminoles,.
the defense made sure that FSU's
offense could not get going.

"Whenever anybody talks
trash before the game I
remind them of the quote
they said every time I hit
them."
Brandon Slier
UF linebacker

The Gators recorded two inter-
ceptions, two fumble recoveries, a
blocked field goal, five sacks and
a turnover on downs in the lop-
sided victory. All came courtesy
of the defense.
The game easily could have
turned the Seminoles' way early,
if not for extraordinary plays like
the blocked field goal.
FSU was back in the game
when quarterback Chris Leak had
an interception returned to the
Gators' 27-yard-line.
Kicker Gary Cismenia lined up
for a 44-yard field goal that would
have made it a 7-3 game.
Defensive tackle Marcus
Thomas had other plans. Thomas


lifted himself over two Seminoles
to block the attempt and corner-
back Reggie Lewis returned it 52
yards to make it a 14-0 lead for the
Gators.
"The blocked field goal that
Reggie Lewis returned for a
touchdow& was the play of the
day," Meyer said.
Suddenly, a 14-point lead
seemed vast in a game where both
offenses were held in check by the
defenses.
"That would have been a big
momentum change for Florida
State if they had made the field
goal," Lewis said. "Luckily, it
went the opposite way, and I was
able to come up with a big play for
our team."
The Seminoles' offense finally
began to threaten with about five
minutes left in the third quarter.
Quarterback Drew Weatherford
had the ball at the UF 14 but
forced a throw into double cover-
age in the end zone.
Safety Jarvis Herring picked
off the pass and with it any hopes
of a Seminoles victory.
Fellow secondary player Avery
Atkins also contributed, despite
the heated rivalry game being his
first serious action of the entire
season.
The freshman intercepted a
pass, recovered a fumble caused
by Herring and broke up two
passes.

Win fueled by UF's stifling defense


* RESERVES STEP UP IN
BROWN'S ABSENCE.

< By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
aabramson@alligator.org

Vernell Brown couldn't
make it on the field for the
game against UF's most bitter


rival, so the Gators did the next
best thing they transformed
their cornerbacks into replicas
of Brown.
Brown, arguably one of
UF's top defensive players this
year who suffered a broken leg
against Vanderbilt, was forced
to watch UF's secondary give
up huge plays in a 49-42 vic-

tory against the Commodores
and a 28-21 loss to South
Carolina a week later.
So for the next two weeks
leading up to Saturday's game,
Brown made it clear that kind
of performance would lead to
an embarrassing loss against
the Seminoles.
His replacements listened.
"Before the game, they had
up clippings of Brown [and
the other seniors] and I was
in there crying because I knew
how bad I wanted to [win for
him] and how much I look up
to him," freshman cornerback
Avery Atkins said. "He's done
everything for me and he's
helped me out all season."
Atkins and Reggie Lewis
came up with huge plays in
the absence of Brown, and
they held Florida State to just 7
points in the process.
"I knew we've got guys that
can fill those shoes and they
did it tonight," Brown said. "It
feels great. All week, I tried to
tell those two guys [to step it
up] and they stepped up big. I
knew they could."
Senior strong safety Jarvis
Herring led the defensive
charge with nine tackles and an
interception, while free safety
Reggie Nelson and linebacker
Earl Everett added seven tack-
les apiece.
But UF couldn't have ex-
celled on Saturday without
such a strong effort by' its cor-
nerbacks.
Atkins who hasn't seen
much significant playing time


this year finished with four
tackles, an interception and
a fumble recovery. He also
made two key breakups that
prevented the Seminoles from
getting in the end zone.
"He played terrific," UF
coach Urban Meyer said. "He
was a guy that was forced into
action against obviously a very
talented FSU team.
"Before the game, they
had up clippings of
Brown [and the other
seniors] and I was in
there crying because I
knew how bad I wanted
to [win for him] and how
much I look up to him?'
Avery Atkins
UF cornerback

"He made play after play
after play. With the turnover
he just covered well down the
field, he played tremendous
[as did] our defense all across
the board."
Lewis, who started in place
of Brown, became the first UF
player in recorded history to
return a blocked field goal for
a touchdown.
He didn't know of the feat
until reporters informed him
after the game, and he paused
for a few seconds to reflect on
it before saying how special it
was to earn a spot in the record
books especially after he

FOOTBALL RECRUITING

Top recruits commit to UF after FSU win


By BLAKE BONSACK
Alligator Writer

The old saying "To the winner goes the
spoils" could not have been more evident
following UF's victory against rival Florida
State as the Gators received three verbal
commitments for the 2006 recruiting class
immediately following the game.
Jarred Fayson, Jacques Rickerson and
Bryan Thomas made their decisions public
after visiting Gainesville for the weekend


U 1994: A 31-3 fourth quarter lead wasn't
safe for the Gators as FSU scored 28
unanswered points. After the 'Noles final
touchdown, they chose to go for the extra
point instead of the 2-point conversion and

of the country's top pros-
pects.

of the most highly touted

Brandon James, Rickerson's brother and
teammate, is expected to make his decision
in the next couple days.
Fayson, a 6-foot-2, 195-pound prospect
and the top receiver in the southeast, said
after the game he felt like the time was right.
"Everything was great," Fayson said.

Yet somehow, someway, UF
defeated Tennessee, Georgia
and Florida State in a regular
single season for the first time
since 1995, and all it bought the
program was a likely December
-trip to Shreveport, La. (for the
record, that's closer to Texas
than New Orleans, and there's
bound to be more mechanical-
bull action than Mardi Gras-like
celebration).
It also bought Urban Meyer
about three months of rest-

Messiah, but he's still a promis-

Twenty-one' football fans were arrested at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium for possession of alcohol, but Gainesville Police Department reported 180 alcohol violations on game day, said GPD spokesman Keith Kameg. Possession of alcohol is a misdemeanor offense. The defendant usually pays a fine and court costs, but that's "up to a judge," Kameg said. Ten UF students were arrested at the football game. "It was a little quieter because of Thanksgiving, but by and large, FSU is our busiest weekend of the football season," Kameg said. A few people were arrested for scalping tickets, Kameg said. Pub C He said police Voy officers were busy all weekend patrolling neighborhoods and parties, but there were no major incidents. In addition to the arrests, University Police ejected 87 people from the game due to intoxication, disorderly conduct, occupying the wrong seat, standing on the bleachers and other offenses, according to the report.

Gators finish season perfect at home By LOUIS ANASTASIS Alligator Staff Writer lanastasis@aligator.org The Swamp cheer flared outward like the external rings of a Bloomin' Onion. And after two Outback Bowl representatives dressed in gravy-colored sport coats smiled past their 20-second ovation, the biggest ramification of UF's 34-7 rout of Florida State became as clear as Australian ocean water: grab the steak sauce, because the Gators are back in Outback Bowl contention. "They helped themselves a lot today by winning," said Bruce Poli, Outback Bowl Chairman. "This puts them right there in the picture." With one swift blow to Bobby Bowden's jugular, the Gators salvaged their season Saturday. They completed a sweep of rivals Teninessee, Georgia and Florida State for the first time since 1995. Of course, it still bothers Coach Urban Meyer that he "I think it's our biggest win. Why? I think the Swamp was electric, and I think our players take great pride in that." Urban Meyer UF football coach cannot prepare for a date with Louisiana State in the Southeastern Conference championship, but Meyer has clearly taken notes from the movie "Gladiator." Win over the crowd and you will win freedom -in Meyer's case, freedom from criticism. "I think it's our biggest win," Meyer said. "Why? I think the Swamp was electric, and I think our players take great pride in that." By the game's end, UF fans chanted his approval.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 2005 M ALLIGATOR, AROUND GAINESVILLE Shoppers go wild on Friday By ANNA SUGGS Alligator Contributing Writer Whether enticed by the first holiday sales of the season or wanting to get away from family, an estimated 145 million Americans barely put away their leftovers before going shopping this weekend. Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, is an old term that means the day when retailers go from red to black in sales, said Becky Bumgarner, senior marketing director at The Oaks Mall. Companies previously used red ink to indicate losses, while black represented a profit. According to a National Retail Federation survey, the 145 million people who went shopping this Thanksgiving weekend spent more than $27.8 billion. The federation expects about $439.5 billion to be spent throughout this holiday season. "This will go down as one of the earliest and most promotional Black Fridays in history," National Retail Federation President and CEO Tracy Mullin said in a news release. "Many stores opened earlier than ever before, and retailers offered unbelievable sales and discounts to get people shopping." Although the Saturday before Christmas is the busiest day for The Oaks Mall, stores typically used "door-buster tactics" to attract customers for the weekend with advertised sales, BumgArmer said. The mall anticipates about four million shoppers this holiday season, she said. "Many stores opened earlier than ever before, and retailers offered unbelievable sales and discounts to get people shopping." Tracy Mullin National Retail Federation President and CEO Electronics like iPods and jewelry are hot sellers at The Oaks Mall this year, she said. Pam Collins, a 37-year-old phlebotomist, was in line at JCPenney on Friday. She said she and her mother get to the mall to shop early morning Black Friday sales every year, but this year they didn't arrive until noon. She said she found a lot of great deals on dishes, clothes, purses, perfumes and lotions. By 4 p.m. they still hadn't stopped for lunch. "It's like you're at a theme park," she said. Lecture goes global By CHERYL CLARKE Alligator Contributing Writer International business with China, Africa and Europe will be the subject of this week's Speakers Series, presented by the UF International Business Society. The organization's event will include three UF lecturers and an author Tuesday and Wednesday, said Chainnan Jebi Mathew. Tuesday, Elinore Fresh will speak about the emerging Chinese market. Barbara McDade, associate professor of economic geography, will speak about strategies used by the new generation of African entrepreneurs. -"I took professor McDade's class, and I was very impressed," society President Justin O'Brien said. "She's very knowledgeable." O'Brien said McDade widely covers African countries by identifying common elements. He said author E. Ted Prince 'will speak about the capabilities needed to succeed in international business ventures Wednesday. Prince is a visiting lecturer who teaches entrepreneurship at UP. Petia Kostadinova, assistant director for the Center for European Studies at UP, will On speak about studyCaRpus ing in Europe on Wednesday. Mathew said it's a good idea to have speakers who know about issues in these regions because "the role of the global economy is becoming more and more important every day." The speeches will be held at 7 p.m. in Stuzin Hall, Room 200. Interested students should e-mail ibsspeakerseries@yahoo.com to guarantee a seat. The event is free but students are required to dress business casual, O'Brien said. Reach over 60,000 UF & SFCC students returning to school.

Now, toward the end of a season rockier than any 6 G coaster, it is a Seminoles blowout -that allows The Gator Nation to honestly say the ride has not been that bad after all. And how about this not-sosubtle detail for kicks: UF finishes the season undefeated at home the only school in the SEC to do so -for the first time since 2000. The Swamp, at least for the moment, has indeed been reclaimed. "Ever since I've been here, we've always talked about getting back the Swamp," center Mike Degory said. "I know for us seniors, we were really challenged with that. There's some good things to look back on." As for the bowl game outlook, here's how it breaks down. There are three teams, but just two spots for the Peach Bowl and Outback Bowl. While the Capital One Bowl committee traditionally selects the loser of the SEC title game, there's a solid chance they could nab Auburn instead. In that scenario, the loser of the Georgia-LSU game would play in either the Outback or Peach Bowl. If UF doesn't make the cut, they'll head to Shreveport, La., for the Independence Bowl. The Gators (8-3, 5-3 SEC) can only hope they impressed the Outback Bowl representatives enough for the game to pass on former McCullough UF coach Steve Spurrier and his South Carolina squad. The Gamecocks (7-4, 5-3 SEC) do sport one more loss than the Gators, but some people feel that Spurrier would create more than enough fanfare in Tampa to generate sufficient revenue. "Ilove [OutbackSteakhouse's] steaks and, their Bloomin' Onions," senior linebacker Todd McCullough said. "Hopefully we'll get a chance to go and play over there, because we haven't won there in a while. We need to show the people of Tampa what we can do." Based on Saturday's performance, there is no reason why the Outback Bowl wouldn't grant the Gators serious consideration. UF terrorized the Seminoles all game long, forcing four turnovers and blocking a field goal that resulted in a 52-yard Reggie Lewis touchdown return. Offensively, the Gators did not blow anyone's mind. But they didn't have to. Quarterback Chris Leak overcame several overthrows and an interception to complete 19 of 28 passes for 211 yards and two touchdowns. Chad Jackson led the receiving corps, reeling in nine catches for 97 yards and a touchdown. Dallas Baker, who suffered a broken rib two weeks ago, played through the injury and recorded three receptions for 38 yards and a touchdown. "You couldn't ask for anything more," Baker said. "It feels great to get a win like this." gatordominos.com 34th SI & Univ.

6, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 2005 Editorial Costly comforts Students shouldn't bear entire cost of bus service C college is naps in the afternoon. It's classes beginning at 1 p.m. It's lazy weekends and crazy nights. It's our last hurrah before we enter the professional workforce and are forced to live by routines and rules. But some UF students are thoroughly concerned with being able to visit campus anywhere at any time. They want the option of studying, working and traveling every day of the week, and Sunday bus service is the new plight of Student Government. We admit it: We told The Gator Party candidates to champion this cause when they first got elected. We applaud officials for acting so quickly. But additional research has changed our minds about the whole thing. We think the cause is noble enough. In this age of convenience, such an idea is attractive. What if, while living on campus, we realize our long-awaited toga party is missing a bushel of grapes and our roommate's. car is broken? Thank God there's Sunday bus service so we can make a three-hour jounTey to Publix. Of course, a small number of students actually will use the service regularly. But all students will have to pay for extended RTS campus bus service, and the bill isn't cheap or necessary. Furthermore, students will be paying for bus routes through areas not densely populated by students. We'll be picking up Gainesville's bill and handing residents a free service. The Transportation Access Fee Committee discussed getting a grant to cover the cost, and Chairman Bob Miller inferred that Gainesville would begin to split the tab after a couple of years. But we need better assurances than maybes and probablies. We need SG to fight for solid plans that don't add indefinite and unnecessary fees to tuition. In the SG elections at the beginning of the semester, both parties promised to add this service. It's an appealing and non-partisan idea. However, a campaign flier doesn't outline the money needed for such an undertaking. Now more fees will likely be tacked on to our tuition to pay for the service. How many times will you use it? If the university is able to secure a grant, fine. If Gainesville agrees to take up some of the costs within a short period of time, go ahead. But we shouldn't push the service by hiking up students' -.e --I ;-+ -+ tkf ig e Gainesville isn't a large city. Aoue wir get most people to most places. Americans are getting more and more overweight; we need the exercise. To get student support, SG officials tend to offer new gifts and conveniences. But we want them to research the idea and constantly reconsider the options. Is the cost worth the service? Money is short all over; we don't need to add extra services every year. We need to work on maintaining what we've got. The Board of Trustees, UF's highest governing body, will decide whether to go ahead with these changes Friday. The hiked fees likely will be approved. For the sake of students, SG must work to ensure that the student body doesn't fund the service forever. But if SG really wants to revive a service that would benefit all students, we have an idea that wouldn't cost any money. How about getting Gainesville to allow liquor sales on Sundays? That's an obstacle that really gets in the way of our college experience. the independent florida alligator Mike Gimignani EDITOR Eva Kis MANAGING EDITOR Emily Yehle OPINIONS EDITOR Tom Durrenberger, Scott Gilton, Andrew Meyer EDITORIAL BOARD The Alligator encourages comments from readers.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 2005 U ALLIGATOR, 7 Letters to the Editor Treason is relative, changes with time One would think that as a journalism major, Andrew Bare ("Confederate flag is a symbol of treason") would know that treason, like just about everything else, is relative. Washington, Jefferson and our other Founding Fathers chose to rebel against England, which at the time was an act of treason. The only reason these men are viewed as heroes and not traitors is because they were on the winning side. Had the Revolutionary War been lost, the only people to remember the Founding Fathers would be a handful of history buffs insisting on honoring their forefathers despite the fact that they were supporting a losing cause. The same is true of Lee and other Confederate heroes. They chose to defend their homeland, which at the time was the Confederate States of America. Whether one considers the secession of the southern states right or wrong is irrelevant. Before he graduates, Mr. Bare should add a few more history courses to his curriculum. He might learn about Stephen Decatur, a Revolutionary War hero who said, "Our country, in her intercourse with foreign nations, may she always be right, but our country right or wrong." From 1861-65, the state in which I was born was part of the Confederate States of America, and during that period, my forefathers served what, at the time, was their country. Although I served in the U.S. Navy, I am proud of my Confederate forebears and will continue to fly the Stars and Bars in their honor. To Mr. Bare: Don't you dare call me, or anyone else who has placed his life on the line to protect your right to express your asinine opinions, a traitor! Lee Holloway Jacksonville resident Confederate soldiers deserve respect I beg to differ on the subject of Andrew Bare's Wednesday column. I cannot believe that someone would write such an ignorant column, and that a newspaper would actually print it. The Confederate flag is not in any way a symbol of treason or rebellion. My seventh cousin, Robert E. Lee, one of the greatest generals in American history, was not a traitor, nor was Gen. Jackson or President Davis. You know what they were? Patriots. How dare you call them "traitors" or "rebellious." All of my grandfathers on every-side of my family from Tennessee, Texas, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi and Arkansas fought in the Confederate army, not one of them owned slaves, and they weren't fighting for slavery, either. The Confederate soldiers were the true American patriots, fighting for the principles, the morals and the rights that their forefathers, like Thomas Jefferson, George Washington and so many others, fought for and believed in. The South is my homeland, and my grandfathers were all Confederate officers and soldiers, so don't write things that belittle them and what they fought for. The Confederacy and its soldiers, whether white, black, Hispanic, Native American, Jewish, Irish or Scottish, all deserve honor, and boy howdy, they're going to get it from me. God Save Dixie. Wes Hamilton Clyde, Texas resident Mascot offensive to Native Americans It is apparent that the editorial staff and cartoonist of the Alligator are unaware of the issues involved in the abolishment of mascots depicting Native Americans. This issue is offensive to many persons native and non-native alike, the Seminole Inc. of Florida excluded. Your cartoon is one of the most blatant reasons that mascots should not depict another culture. It implies that the killing of Indians is OK; this is just one of the issues that Native Americans find objectionable. It is time that UF and the Alligator stop promoting the attitude that it is all right to encourage racist and violent behavior against Native Americans. Jenni Otterson Bell resident Cartoon abandons tolerance, decency Native Americans have a legitimate right to some control over their public image. How does the tradition of a college sports team compare with the dignity of the original American ethnic group? The team should consider a different name. Adding to the gross injustices Native Americans have suffered, it's not necessary to poke fun in this way. Think of various other ethnic groups, including your own, as a substitute for the Native American in the cartoon. Do you suppose other heritage groups would accept the role without complaint? Not likely. Some Americans scoff at "political correctness" or "being p.c." This encourages people to abandon tolerance, common decency and mutual respect. If we throw out these qualities, we are preparing to throw out civilization itself.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 2005 N ALLIGATOR, 15 FSU 7 UF 34 J" Lineman Hand gets reception By ERIC ESTEBAN and ANDREW ABRAMSON Alligator Staff Writers Offensive tackle Randy Hand won't be striking Heisman poses anytime soon, but his 1-yard rush off a Leak lateral pass in the third quarter was a first for the senior. "That big 1-yard gain was a big play," Meyer said jokingly. "We felt like down there they were really tightening up with an excellent red-zone defense and we thought we'd get them to pursue the ball." Meyer actually started offensive lineman Phil Trautwein in the tight end spot but didn't get the ball. SOMETHING SPECIAL: Florida State's special teams came into the Swamp on a hot streak, blocking three punts in two games. Defensive tackle Marcus Thomas' hand changed that in an instant. The Gators were only up 7-0 when Gary Cismesia lined up for a routine 44-yard field goal. At the snap, Thomas hopped on a Seminole offensive lineman before pushing forward and deflecting the ball into the backfield where cornerback Reggie Lewis picked it up in stride returning it 52 yards for a touchdown. "When I saw all that grass in front of me, and I looked up and saw no one was behind me, my thing was just get into the end zone," Lewis said. It was Thomas' second blocked kick in as many games, and the first time in UF recorded history that the Gators had returned a blocked field goal for a touchdown. "Play of the day," Meyer said. "I thought our special teams was outstanding." WHOLE LOTTA LOVE: While it wasn't a record crowd, the holiday weekend didn't keep more than 90,000 fans away from the Swamp. Although many students were trying to sell tickets throughout the week online so they could remain on vacation, numerous fans were trying to buy scalped tickets outside the Swamp Saturday afternoon, and 90,669 ended up attending the game, good for third best in Florida Field history. BACK-TO-BACK: UF's victory marked the first time in nearly 20 years that the Gators defeated Florida State in back-to-back regular season games. The Gators defeated FSU six straight times from 1979-86 and hasn't racked up consecutive victories in the regular season series since. The Gators did beat the Seminoles twice in a row after defeating FSU in the Sugar Bowl to win the 1996 national chainpionship and then beating No. 2 FSU in the 1997 regular-season showdown in Gainesville. MUST SEE TV: Though the stakes might have been lower in this year's Florida-Florida State game than in past clashes between the two bitter in-state rivals, the game was still shown to a national television audience -and beyond. Throughout Saturday's CBS broadcast, U.S. troops in Afghanistan were shown watching the game overseas. Many of the troops didn't just show support for their nation. Orange and blue and garnet and gold replaced the traditional camouflaged gear as the troops cheered on the Gators and Seminoles. RISING: After defeaitng FSU, the Gators jumped up two spots in the AP Top 25 to No. 17. The Seminoles dropped out of the rankings following UF's 34-7 rout. THIS AND THAT: After the game, Meyer announced that walk-on place kicker Chris Hetland had earned a scholarship. Hetland, a junior, converted on field goals of 34 and 44 yards against FSU Linebacker Brandon Siler made his Southeastern Conferenceleading seventh fumble recovery. DREW.from oage 20 prove. In a season deemed Southern Reconstruction, four SEC teams finished with two or less conference losses, and a fifth -South Carolina -has three blemishes of its own, but managed to defeat the Gators to get a heads up in the bowl sweepstakes. Here's further proof that the bowl system doesn't work and the BCS needs to remove the letter C in its title. A great Auburn team will be left out of a top bowl game, FSU is a single Virginia Tech upset away from the Orange Bowl (extremely unlikely, but stranger things have happened) and an attractive UP team that has some national appeal will likely celebrate the holidays in Shreveport. Still, it didn't have to end like this. There's no excuse for losing to an average Gamecocks team, even if they were led by the Goldeni Orr. And UP had about 10 chances to get back in the LSU game. Then again, the Gators were fortunate to play a D.J. Shockley-less Georgia team, a and--let's iotforgef the excessive celebration call against Vanderbilt that prevented a two-point attempt and possible Commodores shocker. As the distraught Bobby Bowden will tell you, the scandalous Charley Pell began his coaching career at UF with a 0-10-1 record, only to turn the Gators into national contenders several years later. Immediately following Saturday's game, several top recruits jumped on the Urban Mobile. Meyer's future looks bright. Then again, the future seems equally as promising at Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, Auburn and LSU, and even Tennessee will rise again. If the Gators want to do more than compete, they will need perfection. There's no reason to think Meyer can't get it done eventually. But as Auburn painfully learned last year, not even perfection guarantees a title. At least you can tease your friends at FSU for the entire offseason, right? And if all goes right, you can kiss your sister after the Independence Bowl. Secondary overcomes recent sloppiness DEFEN E, from page 20 and the rest of the secondary were burned in two previous games. "That's a big thing. I didn't know that," Lewis said. "That makes it even better. "I don't know why we were playing [so poorly in the last two games]. We had to prove ourselves and that's what we did. We came out and proved that we still have a hell of a good defense." Starting cornerback Dee Webb, who has been inconsistent throughout the season and his career, also stepped up in Brown's absence, racking up six tackles and forcing a fumble. Gator," Meyer said. "He's one of those guys everyone says has potential. Well, potential is an ugly world in athletics. He played great tonight, I really admired the way he played." The one thing UF's defense didn't achieve was recording the shutout the entire unit had strived for all year. They came close, holding the Seminoles scoreless until a touchdown with 6:35 remaining in the game gave FSU its 7 points. "I wanted it bad, there's nothing like a goose egg," defensive end Jeremy Mincey said. "We didn't get it, but we won and it was a good victory, a pretty victory, and I'm proud of that much." Recruits want to bring prominence back RECRUIT, from page 20 in my commitment was definitely the comfort level and my relationships with the coaches and the players and just the university in general." Fayson is looking forward to contributing early for the Gators. "They're going to find ways to get the ball in my hands," Fayson said. "I just want to come in and blend in with the rest of the team and help out where I can." Through recruiting camps and visits, many of the prospects that UF is recruiting have formed close friendships. "When we first started this process we all thought that it would be great if we all could go to the same school," Fayson said. "But we didn't put any pressure on each other Jacques Rickerson, a 5-foot-10, 180-pound cornerback out of St. Augustine, hopes to come in and help fill a position that is thin. "I think the deciding factor was being able to come in and play early," Rickerson said. Bryan Thomas, a 6-foot-2, 192pound prospect out of Zephyrhills, also made a verbal commitment to play for the Gators and is projected to either play safety or receiver at the college level. The influx of new talent to the football team will play a crucial role in the program's long-term success as the Gators attempt to become an elite SEC team again. "I keep thinking back and Hornsby and I talk all the time about Jacquez Green and those guys with Coach Spurrier and all those SEC championships," Fayson said. "We want to get Florida football back to where it used to be." UF tackle Randy Hand breaks away from FSU linebacker A.J. Nicholson for a 1-yard run in the third quarter of UF's 34-7 victory.

16 ALLIGATOR S MONDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 2005 FOOTBALL Offense comes up big By IAN FISHER Alligator Staff Writer ifisher@alligator.org Through all the criticism, through all the questions of Chris Leak running UF's new offense, Coach Urban. Meyer stuck with his quarterback, not wavering after Leak struggled earlier in the season. "You're not going to like what I'm about to say, but Chad Jackson can get a lot better. Chad Jackson is still learning how to play wide receiver." Urban Meyer UF football coach On Saturday, Meyer's own daughter Nicole was wearing a t-shirt with "Leak" and "12" plastered across the back. Perhaps the shirt brought Leak some luck, because Meyer said it was Leak that won the game for UT. Leak passed for an efficient 211 yards and two touchdowns on 19-of28 passing. "Chris Leak has been through a lot," Meyer said. "He has been through a lot of ups and downs. That was a big-time win. A lot of people say he's never really won a game. I really felt like he stepped up the Tennessee game and did as much as anybody to win that game, and I felt that way out there tonight." On the receiving end of many of Leak's passes was go-to receiver Chad Jackson, who finished with nine catches for 97 yards and a touchdown. He has caught a pass in 23 straight games and a touchdown in three straight. Jackson now has 81 catches on the season, seven short of the UF record set by Carlos Alvarez in 1969. Jackson still has the bowl game to match or break the record. That being said, Meyer was critical of Jackson, as he has been all year. Jackson has never made Meyer's Champion's Club, despite leading the team with 11 touchdowns. "You're not going to like what I'm about to say, but Chad Jackson can get a lot better," Meyer said. "Chad Jackson is still learning how to play wide receiver." Receiver Jemalle Cornelius had two diving catches -one for 23 yards, the other for nine. Leak said after the game that he just has to get the ball anywhere near Comelius for him to make a play. Dallas Baker also added a receiving touchdown. Despite all the positives on offense, Meyer said it could have been a lot better. Leak overthrew receivers all night, and the one interception he made came on an overthrow. "You even saw tonight that there were a lot of plays that could've been made," Meyer said, adding that Leak misfired on some of them. "Chad Jackson got behind the defense once or twice. We're still not a big-play offense. Our longest play today was 33 yards and that was Tate Casey when he fumbled the ball." UF wins one for seniors = MEYEn. wV GOT TI itNOC 0O ING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. By BRYAN APP Alligator Staff Writer bapp@alligator.org Dee Webb hadn't received the memo. He didn't hear the news that this year's Florida-Florida State rivalry didn't mean a thing. With the Gators out of contention for a Southeastern Conference title and an outside shot at the Outback Bowl offering as the game's greatest reward, the UF junior cornerback found a reason greater than any to defeat the Seminoles: Vernell Brown. In an emotionally charged locker room before Saturday's rivalry, Webb stood before his teammates and dedicated his performance -to the injuredsenior cornerback. And while Brown, who suffered a broken leg against Vanderbilt on Nov. 5, witnessed his Swamp finale on the sideline, it was Webb who played like it was his last game, forcing a fumble and recording six tackles. But it was the least Webb could do to send Brown and UF's nine other scholarship seniors who weathered heartaches and a coaching change during recent seasons out in style. senior linebacker Todd McCullough in appreciation of Webb. "It's people like Vernell Brown. This whole senior class, a lot of these guys were told they never could do it. "To me, that's what it's all about: having each other's back and being one big family." Though Urban Meyer's inaugural season in Gainesville might have fallen short of the expectations of some, the coach considers such acts of camaraderie a good sign. "The reason he played so hard tonight was simply for Vernell Brown because Vemell Brown always does everything right," said Meyer, who has called Brown the face of UF football. "Dee at times maybe doesn't do everything right, but he played for Vemell Brown. "If that came from the heart, we got things going in the right direction a little bit." It's a direction that Gators seniors like Mincey, Mike Degory, Randy Hand and Jarvis Herring won't be around to witness first-person, but one they'll gladly take pride in initiating. "We opened up the gates for a bigtime program, and I'm proud to be a part of it," Mincey said. "We've got a bunch of talented guys, so look forward to the future because the Swamp has risen again." Gators to open NCAAs at 0-Dome UF ENTERS NCAA TOURNAMENT AS NO.8 SEED IN OMAHA REGION. By BRYAN JONES Alligator Writer Eager to discover their NCAA tournament fate, the No. 4 UF volleyball team performed what Coach.Mary Wise jokingly deemed a miracle. Traveling home after sweeping two weekend matches in Denver, the team convinced the Chili's near their gate at the airport to change the television station from football to the NCAA volleyball tournament selection show on ESPNews. That miracle turned out to be unfulfilling, however. Rushed onto the plane, the team did not learn their fate until shortly before takeoff. "We found out through the beauty of cell phone," Wise said. "It's a good thing we were in the first half to be announced. Otherwise we wouldn't have found out until we landed. "It was a little different because in the past we have all been together. We weren't, we were all spread out and buckled in and we were yelling it back and forth." ; The Southeastern Conference champion Gators were named the eighth seed in this year's tournament and will host the first two rounds, beginning Thursday. UF (30-2) will take on Florida Atlantic (29-2), the champions of the Atlantic Sun Conference, in the opening round of the tournament. Kansas State (20-10) and MidEastern Athletic Conference champion Florida A&M (22-5) will also square off Thursday in the O'Connell Center. The second round match will take place on Friday. "What we learned last year is that being right now we are thrilled to be one of the 16 teams that gets to play at home," Wise said. Last season, the Gators lost in the second round to Stanford. "Florida's probably going to be a team that has a little bit to prove in this tournament," ESPN volleyball analyst Cathy Nelson said. "They are very good at home but last year they did lose to Stanford, the eventual champion. "I think Florida will be motivated to do a great job and get out of this region." With a surprising total of six teams from the SEC making the field, only the Big 12 will send more teams to the tournament. "If you had told me Wise just a few years ago that in the 2005 season we'd get six teams in, I'm not sure I would have believed it," Wise said. "Credit the talent and the coaches in the league." Despite being ranked fourth in the country in the AVCA poll, the No. 8 seed awarded to the Gators puts them in the Omaha Regional -a region topped by No. 1 seed Nebraska. But the Gators will not get caught looking head, Wise said, and the team is just excited about the opportunity to play the opening rounds at home. "It's one more chance for our fans to see [seniors] Jane Collymore and Rachel Engel play," Wise said. "We hope they'll come out in big numbers."

Jarvis Herring, SS, Sr. Michelle Stewart /Alligator Staff E FRESHMAN SPARKS EASY WIN WITH FIVE 3-POINTERS. By NICK ZACCARDI Alligator Writer Sha Brooks didn't have the green light on Sunday, but she shot the lights out anyway. UP's star freshman guard drained five 3-pointers in the first nine minutes of the Gators' 85-56 blowout victory of Stetson at the O'Connell Center. She looked well on her way to breaking the Gators' singlegame record of eight threes set by Bridget Pettis, but a runaway win kept her on the bench for much of the second half. Her spark led the Gators to a 49-23 halftime lead, and Brooks only attempted one 3-pointer in the second half of the home opener. Brooks, who led the team with 19 points, didn't show the same accuracy from long range in practice, where the team goes through the "green light" drill. To complete the exercise successively, the player must make 25 3-pointers in two minutes from different spots on the court. Brooks didn't make the "green light" club this week, fessing up in the post-game news conference. "All of our guards have been in it," UF coach Carolyn Peck said. "It's a matter of having to keep doing it each week to stay in it." Had Brooks practiced against Stetson's zone defense, maybe she would have stayed in the club "All of our guards have been in it (the green-light club). It's a matter of having to keep doing it each week to stay in it." Carolyn Peck UF women's basketball coach another week. She scored 8 of the first 10 points for UF (3-1), including two threes in a span of 47 seconds to put the Gators up 10-1. "They had confidence in me," Brooks said. ."Overall we did pretty good finding me because I was open." After Sarah Lowe hit a three, Brooks spotted up two more times from behind the arc in less than a minute to make the score 19-4. Her final three of the game came with 11:36 left in the first half. After that Stetson finally cooled her down, and Brooks finished 5 of 7 on 3-point shooting in the game. "Prior to the ball game wpe knew she was a solid player and she had the capability of knocking down threes," Stetson coach Dee Romine said. "She was just knocking them down from WNBA range." Brooks got most of her looks because the Hatters focused on the inside presence of Brittany Davis and Dalila Eshe, who combined for nine assists. "Sha did a very good job of knocking down open shots," Peck said. "Our team did a good job of finding her. When we execute our offense, Brittany and Dalila inside are going to attract two people. When that happened Sha did a good job of stepping into the open gaps against the zone." The win came after UF's first loss of the season, an 8276 setback at Florida State on Wednesday where Brooks went 3 of 6 from behind the arc. "It's a confidence booster coming off of the loss the other night," said Eshe,. who led the Gators with 21 points against FS. "Our concentration was boxing out and we did out-rebound them. I think we just wanted to focus on improving what we were lacking in the previous game." UF travels to Charlotte on Wednesday for a 6:00 p.m. matchup. Bro(%ks propel tiaxorS -3 %ff WUt I&

MONDA, NOVEMBER -2 ,005 AdiG'ATOR, 9 FSU trash talk inspired UF Defensive plays seale By FARZAD SAFI Alligator Staff Writer fsafi@alligator.org In the week leading up to the Florida State game, Coach Urban Meyer believed that his offense needed "big plays" in order for the Gators to win. But it wasn't Meyer that necessarily motivated the Gators. After UF's loss to South Carolina two weeks ago, FSU running back Lorenzo Booker said that the Gators did not even belong on the same field with FSU. "It's personal when you talk trash to somebody and I took Booker's comments personally," Siler said. "I think half of the emotion we had out there was from the disrespect they showed us." Booker finished with only four yards on six carries and had Siler to deal with after every carry. "Whenever anybody talks trash before the game I remind them of the quote they said every time I hit them," Siler said. "I'm not going to sit here and say that FSU had a great offense," Siler said. "For them to come and rip us apart before the game and for us to go out and whoop them, I'm not going to show them any respect all." So in Saturday's 34-7 romp at the Swamp, a moti and special teams after big play.

By ANDREW ABRAMSON Alligator Staff writer aabramson@alligatororg Vernell Brown couldn't make it on the field for the game against UF's most bitter rival, so the Gators did the next best thing -they transformed their cornerbacks into replicas of Brown. Brown, arguably one of UF's top defensive players this year who suffered a broken leg against Vanderbilt, was forced to watch UF's secondary give up huge plays in a 49-42 vicUF's Avery Atkins helps Earl Everett sack FSU quarterback Drew Weatherford during the Gators' 34-7 win against FSU. tory against the Commodores and a 28-21 loss to South Carolina a week later. So for the next two weeks leading up to Saturday's game, Brown made it clear that kind of performance would lead to an embarrassing loss against the Seminoles. His replacements listened. "Before the game, they had up clippings of Brown [and the other seniors] and I was in there crying because I knew how bad I wanted to [win for him] and how much I look up to him," freshman cornerback Avery Atkins said. "He's done everything for me and he's helped me out all season." Atkins and Reggie Lewis came up with huge plays in the absence of Brown, and they held Florida State to just 7 points in the process. "I knew we've got guys that can fill those shoes and they did it tonight," Brown said. "It feels great. All week, I tried to tell those two guys [to step it up] and they stepped up big. I knew they could." Senior strong safety Jarvis Herring led the defensive charge with nine tackles and an interception, while free safety Reggie Nelson and linebacker Earl Everett added seven tackles apiece. But UF couldn't have excelled on Saturday without such a strong effort by its cornerbacks. Atkins -who hasn't seen much significant playing time this year -finished with four tackles, an interception and a fusnble recovery. He also made two key breakups that prevented the Seminoles from getting in the end zone. "He played terrific," UF coach Urban Meyer said. "He was a guy that was forced into action against obviously a very talented FSU team. "Before the game, they had up clippings of Brown [and the other seniors] and I was in there crying because I knew how bad I wanted to [win for him] and how much I look up to him." Avery Atkins UF cornerback "He made play after play after play. With the turnover he just covered well down the field, he played tremendous [as did] our defense all across the board." Lewis, who started in place of Brown, became the first UF player in recorded history to return a blocked field goal for a touchdown. He didn't know of the feat until reporters informed him after the game, and he paused for a few seconds to reflect on it before saying how special it was to earn a spot in the record books -especially after he SEE DEFENSE, PAGE 15 PTBALL RERUITIN ^t To rcuis onri t U f7r1S wn By BLAKE BONSACK Alligator writer The old saying "To the winner goes the spoils" could not have been more evident following UF's victory against rival Florida State as the Gators received three verbal commitments for the 2006 recruiting class immediately following the game. Jarred Fayson, Jacques Rickerson and Bryan Thomas made their decisions public after visiting Gainesville for the weekend and attending the game along with some of the country's top prospects. Receiver Jamar Hornsby, considered one of the most highly touted recruits in the country, committed earlier in the month and was excited to see that his friends were Rickerson joining him, "Jarred, Jacques, Brandon James and I -they call us the 'fantastic four' because we're always together," Hornsby said. Brandon James, Rickerson's brother and teammate, is expected to make his decision in the next couple days. Fayson, a 6-foot-2, 195-pound prospect and the top receiver in the southeast, said after the game he felt like the time was right. "Everything was great," Fayson said.

(for the record, that's closer to Texas than New Orleans, and there's bound to be more mechanicalbull action thanMardi Gras-like celebration). It also bought Urban Meyer about three months of restful sleep and some peace of mind, because the leeches -the media (I plead no contest), the fans, the Spurriers -were ready to crucify Meyer if he lost a fourth game.
