Students petition Levin
E SOME ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THE
LAW SCHOOL'S LACK OF DIVERSITY.

Third-year law student Natasha Chisolm signs a petition to in-
crease diversity at the Levin College of Law on Wednesday.


Seventeen of the 92 incoming Fall students
to the UF Levin College of Law are not white.
Ten of the college's 72 faculty are not white.
Felix Felicier, a third-year UF law student,
said it's not enough.
"Its tough when you come in as a first-year
law student and look in your classes and only
see four or five students who look like you,"
said Felicier, who is Puerto Rican.
The law school's 18.5 percent minority en-
rollment this Fall places it near the bottom of
the Association of American Universities' list
of top schools this semester when ranked by
minority enrollment, he said.
About 100 students and faculty signed a pe-
tition at the UF law school today to encourage
administrators to face its lack of diversity.
Felicier and several other members of the
American Constitution Society's local chapter
organized the petition, which will continue
until the administration takes notice, said third-
year law student Vatrice Perrin.
The minority statistics this Fall are mislead-
ing, said Associate Dean Patrick Shannon.
For the first time, the law school accepted
one pool of student applications simultane-
ously for both the Summer and Fall semesters,
Shannon said. A total of 298 students enrolled
in the entire group: 206 in the Summer and 92
in the Fall.
Of the 298 total, 22.8 percent were minori-
ties, Shannon said.
But even at this percentage, UF has a long
way to go, Perrin said.
"This law school, since I came, has said year
after year that they want to be a Top 10 public
law school," Felicier said. "We're tired of being

CLO must be


fixed to stay

By DAVID COHEN

Elizabeth "Izzy" McAlister went to UF officials ask-
ing for lower rent.
She got her wish but only until March 17.
If the Collegiate Living Organization cannot come up
with $500,000 to repair its co-op facility, which does not
meet UF's strict standards, the university will be forced
to sell the land to the highest bidder.
And McAlister, along with about 70 other residents,
will be forced to find a new home.
But because UF holds a trust
UF with the CLO, the university
Administration cannot profit from the public
sale of the land all money
for the valuable property will go to help low-income
students for whom the trust was originally intended.
That, however, is of little comfort to McAlister, who
was approved to move into the CLO on Dec. 9 by UF.
officials because she couldn't afford to live in Sledd Hall
anymore.
McAlister said the CLO's rent was cheaper by $1,000
a semester.
But a UF investigation, which concluded a month
earlier, detailed repairs needed to get the 33-year-old
facility up to university standards.
"I feel hurt, deceived, insulted," McAlister said. "It's
upsetting that they care so little about each individual
student. It's really very upsetting to my family. They
finally thought there was a sense of relief."
"They're not being considerate to less fortunate
students," she said of UF officials, with whom the trust
deed dates back to 1947. "For some people this is the
only option they have."

Student's purse stolen while shopping at UF bookstore


UPD believe theft committed by team of four


By STEPHANIE RODRIGUEZ
Alligator Writer
srodriguez@alligator.org

Police are searching for a team
of four people who stole a stu-
dent's purse at the UF Bookstore.
A woman was caught on a


security video Dec. 16 grabbing
a UF student's purse while three
accomplices roamed the book-
store as lookouts, according to
a University Police Department
release.
"It is obvious that they were
working together from looking at


the video," said UPD spokesman
Joe Sharkey.
The UF student set her purse
down because she was in a
rush to get to her graduation
ceremony for the College of
Engineering, said Dave Moore,
human resource manager at the


UF Bookstore.
"It was an open opportunity
for someone to steal her bag,"
Moore said. "She had a lot go-
ing on."
The woman who grabbed the
purse took out the contents and
left the purse behind, according
to the release.
Moore said it is unusual for


thefts to occur in the bookstore.
"The most- common thing
that happens is that people take
laptops from the library," Moore
said. "Students need to be more
careful where they leave things."
If anyone has information
about the suspects' identities,
contact Lt. Joe Sharkey at (352)

ON CAMPUS
Student Organization Fair
ends today at Reitz Union
The annual Student
Organization Fair continues today
from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the Reitz
Union Colonnade with more than
70 organizations planning to at-
tend.
The fair kicked off Wednesday,
and organizers say this year is
unique because no organization
can be on display for both days.
"Because of the large number of
organizations who want to partici-
pate, we can only have organiza-
tions sign up for one day," said fair
Chairman Yordanos Eyoel.
IDEAL, a group of official am-
bassadors of the Office of Student
Involvement, sponsors the fair and
runs all of the necessary opera-
tions, such as group registration,
setup and organization.
The purpose of the Student
Organization Fair is to bring all
student organizations together
to give students an easier way to
leam about the groups on campus.
"It is important to get involved
because you need to take respon-
sibility for something in your life,
whether it's your faith or studies,
but something you're passion-
ate about," said Bobby Angel, a
member of the Catholic Student
Fellowship.
There are more than 700 organi-
zations on campus, so it is easy to
find one that suits every passion.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Incomplete grade resulted in Cosimi's ineligibility


By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Writer
Ilewis@alligator.org

UF officials say they cannot re-
veal why Student Body Treasurer
Lindsay Cosimi, who received an
incomplete grade last Spring, was
not determined ineligible to hold
office at an earlier date.
Cosimi said she first received a
letter informing her of her ineligi-
bility toward the end of Fall, about
halfway through her year-long term
as treasurer.
Although the Dean of Students
Office forced her resignation in
December, Student Senate re-
turned Cosimi to her former posi-
tion through a unanimous vote at


Tuesday night's Senate meeting. She
had nominated herself, along with
two other can-
didates, to take
over her recently
vacated position.
o aAs treasurer,
Cosimi controls
more than $11
million of stu-
Cosimi dentmoney.
"The focus of
this, in my opinion, is that I'm a very
good treasurer," she said.
Dean of Students Gene Zdziarski
said an unusually long amount
of time progressed from the time
Cosimi became ineligible for office
to the date when she resigned from
her post.


"We run checks a couple times a
semester regarding student leader
eligibility Zdziarski said. "Most
cases are resolved in less than 30
days."
Cosimi said that although her
incomplete grade initially did not
affect her grade point average, it
automatically changed to a failing
grade of E by the time Fall semester
began.
However, she said she was
unaware of this change when she
began classes in the Fall.
"Immediately upon receiving
my grades (in Spring), I was work-
ing on rectifying the situation," she
said. "(By Fall) I had kind of put
everything so far behind me and
was focusing on my job and my


classes."
The failing grade left Cosimi's
Spring GPA too low to comply
with university standards, which
state that officials must maintain
a "minimum 2.0 Grade Point
Average for the semester enrolled
previous to the election excluding
summer semester."
Cosimi was elected to her posi-
tion in Spring 2005, meaning the
Spring semester determined her
eligibility.
By the time she learned she
would have to resign, the deadline
to appeal the decision had already
passed, but Cosimi said she was
doing her best to establish her eligi-
bility to hold office.
"They were looking for docu-


mentation upon documentation,
and I did everything in my power
to provide that for them," she said.
Cosimi was eventually allowed
to file an appeal past deadline, a de-
cision which Zdziarski and Student
Government adviser Chris Cupoli
said they could not comment on.
Now that she is set to complete
the remainder of her term, Cosimi
said she is looking forward to con-
tinuing her work as Student Body
treasurer.
"I couldn't even begin speculat-
ing" on why the eligibility screen-
ing process lasted so long, she said.
"I'm really just excited to put the
entire matter behind me and just
continue to be a good Student Body
treasurer."


Ex-ambassador argues national security is a joint effort


* SODERBERG PUSHED UF
STUDENTS TO GET INVOLVED

By LINDSEY FRANCO
Alligator Contributing Writer

Former U.S. Ambassador Nancy
Soderberg called on America to
join forces with other countries to
help improve U.S. national secu-
rity in a speech at the Reitz Union
Wednesday night.
"The U.S. is less secure today
than it should be because it's blind-
ed by the superpower myth," she
said to a crowd of 400 listeners.
Soderberg discussed what she


called the "dangerous fallacy"
of the myth in her speech titled
"The Superpower Myth The Use
and Misuse of American Might,"
which followed two speeches she
presented earlier in the day titled,
"Preventing Conflict in Africa" and
"Can the U.N. Be Reformed?"
She described the superpower
myth as a misconception Americans
hold about the United States having
more economic, cultural and mili-
tary power than other countries. She
argued that blindly believing this
has led to a weak national security
program.
"The superpower myth has led
us to single-handedly do it all," she


said. "There is no way the U.S. can,
in this day in age, protect itself on its
own."
"The U.S. is less secure
today than it should be
because it's blinded by the
superpower myth."
Nancy Soderberg
Former U.S. Ambassador

Her speech highlighted four
issues currently challenging the
United States, which included en-
abling reform in the Arab world,
advances in the Middle East peace
process, decreasing ownership of


weapons of mass destruction and
boosting the economic progress of
other nations.
Her speech concluded with
pushing students to take advantage
of the opportunities UF provides.
"Go try and make sure you love
what you're doing," she said.
Soderberg said she was
pushed to. go into politics by her
Georgetown professor, who later
became former Secretary of State
Madeleine Albright.
Soderberg was a senior for-
eign policy advisor to President
Clinton, a third-ranking official
at the National Security Council,
a U.S. ambassador to the United


Nations and she is currently a
vice president at the International
Crisis Group.
She was invited to speak at UF
through the International Center's
International Speakers Program.
"Go to the trouble to get the
information and read about the
issues," said International Center
Dean Dennis Jett. "That's the very
purpose of bringing someone like
Nancy here: to get students to
think about these issues."
The Center of African Studies,
the department of political science
and the Transnational and Global
Studies Center also sponsored the
speech.

paid lip service,"
This is not the first time faculty
and students have objected to the law
school's handling of minority issues.
In 1999, professor Kenneth B.
Nunn stepped down as associate
dean of the law college in a move to
influence change, Shannon said.
"He stepped down
On as saying we needed
-:lp~US to do a better job," he
said. "It was a very
positive thing for our law school."
Shannon said the school has since
made changes to make the school's
environment better for minorities.
Professor Michelle Jacobs also
left when Nunn stepped down. Both
have since returned.
Although things have been some-
what better since the walk-out, UF
has always had problems with mi-
nority issues, and it may be difficult
to change, Jacobs said.


"I think it's sort of a pipe dream
that an institution of this size and
history is going to turn it around,"
she said.
The problem is not exclusive
to the law college or UF, but the
university's position as the flagship
school in the state makes it more of a
problem, she said.
Perrin said she thinks many quali-:
fied minority students are choosing
not to attend the law college because
of its lack of diversity.
"As of now, I wouldn't encour-
age minorities to come here," Perrin
said. "You don't have reflections of
yourself."
Felicier said the petition is an ef-
fort to change a communication gap
between minority students and the
administration.
"There's a definite gap between
what the students of color think
and what the administration thinks
the students of color think," Felicier
said.


CLO, from page 1


Associate Vice President for Student Affairs
Mike Rollo said UF wants to ensure that the
CLO will not bum to the ground like the Sigma
Nu Fraternity house did in 1968.
"You talk about disrupting a student's life,"
Rollo said, citing a UF report showing CLO
kitchen fire-code violations. "Every year, there
are circumstances where students lose their lives
in fires. We have very strong feelings about it be-
ing safe. That's what's driving this. They are our
students."
Rollo said McAlister's situation occurred
because CLO investigation information "just
hadn't been circulated out," noting that UF has
hundreds of employees.
Rollo said when the property is sold, ac-
cording to the trust, the money must go toward
needy student scholarships. He said he has not
been in any discussions about UF purchasing
the property, which would have to be sold in a
Public auction.
"There is no ulterior motive," he said.
Attorneys from UF and the CLO are now
meeting to discuss the future of the 75-year-old
organization, and plans are in place for the CLO
to meet with UF this Friday to discuss solutions.
Rollo said CLO residents will be pro-rated

Rollo said McAlister will not get preferential
treatment if she decides to leave the CLO.

upsetting that they care so little
about each individual student. It's
really very upsetting to my family.
They finally thought there was a

penalized financially if they move out," Rollo
said. "We serve as their advisers. We've advised
students to move out as soon as possible. I
would not live there, nor would I let my children
live there, and I told them that. It's very dilapi-
dated. It's dangerous. It's in bad need of repair.
It's the not the kind of place UF would allow on
its campus."
He said Buckman Hall was the last co-op on
UF's campus.
"They just don't work well today," he said.
"Students did not really buy into sharing the
work. That doesn't appear to be the way many
students want to live today."

Book fiasco shocks professors


By MARIA LAVERGHETTA
Alligator Contributing Writer

James Frey told a few white
lies to millions of people and
admitted it.
The reading world gasped
when Frey said on a Jan. 11 air-
ing of "Larry King Live" that he
exaggerated parts of his bestsell-
ing non-fiction book, "A Million
Little Pieces." The book received
wide recognition as a selection for
Oprah's Book Club in fall 2005.
By not putting a disclaimer
on the book and not saying that
he exaggerated, he discredited
himself, said David Leverenz,
UF English professor and author
of the book "Manhood and the
American Renaissance."
"If you present [the book] as
true, it has to be as true as you
make it," Leverenz said.
Frey disputed exaggerations
raised by an investigative Web
site, The Smoking Gun, saying
the fabricated events were only
on 18 pages of the 432-page book
- hardly proving that his mem-
oir was completely false, he said
during the interview.
"This is again a case where an
incredibly minute portion of the
book ... is being picked apart,"


Frey said during the interview.
"I had a long drug and alcohol
history. My.memory's very sub-
jective. Everyone's memory is
subjective."
The Smoking Gun stated
that claims in Frey's book were
unverifiable via public records,
some of which conflicted with
stories from the book.
"Even with this coming to
light, it doesn't change
my opinion of this book."
Hayley Singleton
UF student

Publishers originally turned
down the book as a novel, so
Frey said he renamed it a mem-
oir through the suggestion of
his agent, Molly Friedrich, said
senior writer Marc Peyser in
his Newsweek article released
Monday.
Despite Frey's admissions,
Oprah Winfrey, whose book dub
is largely credited with the book's
success, came out in defense of
Frey's memoir.
Leverenz said he thought
Winfrey did the wrong thing by
backing the book after the truth
came out.


Leverenz noted that it would
be wrong if he, as a member of
the academic writing world, fab-
ricated a part of his own book.
Roger M. Thompson, UF
English professor and author of
"Filipino English and Taglish:
Language Switching from
Multiple Perspectives," com-
pared Frey's plight to a traffic
accident, noting that everyone's
perception of events is different.
"I think a lot of people who
write their own biographies have
fiction in them," Thompson said.
"They might be trying to make a
point."
Hayley Singleton, a college
student and fan of the book, said
she felt the scrutiny the book has
come under is unwarranted.
"I'm actually pretty shocked
that [The Smoking Gun] went out
of their way to do this," she said.
"I'm sure that there are plenty of
other books that they could do
this to if they wanted to."
She said she loved that in the
book, Frey did everything his
way something she said she
related to.
"Even with this coming to
light, it doesn't change my opin-
ion of this book," Singleton said.


Poolside jobs open


By KIM CRUTS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Even the bitter chill of a
Gainesville winter shouldn't
discourage penniless students
on the prowl from employment
at the pool. Lynne Palmer, coor-
dinator of Community Outreach
Training for the UF CPR &
Safety Training Center, knows
the ideal part-time job for col-
lege students.
"There's a huge shortage of
lifeguards every single season,"
Palmer said. "College-aged stu-
dents are the perfect people to
lifeguard."
On Monday, the training
center begins the first of two
American Red Cross lifeguard
certification courses scheduled
this semester. Upon comple-
tion of the class, students hold
three-year certifications in both
lifeguard training and first aid,
along with a one-year certifica-
tion in CPR.
The $135 course spans al-
most three weeks and is broken
up into 10 or 11 class periods.
Classes take place during eve-
nings and on weekends, with


locations alternating between
UF classrooms and the 300 Club
pool, located at 3715 NW 12th
-Ave.
There is -a delicate balance
required to meet the demand
for classes in the Spring without
offering more classes than can be
filled, Palmer said.
"It's tough because
On you're trying to break
Campus down 36 hours that
will fit into the college
population's time
frames," she said.
There is a certain glory that
comes with being a lifeguard,
Palmer said.
"You're looked up to from
kids who are 5 and think that
you're God, to the 17-year-olds
where the girls think all the boys
are cute and vice-versa," she
said. "And the parents give you
the same admiration because
.you're guarding their children;
you're keeping them safe. So
there are a lot more benefits to
lifeguarding than just being
certified."

Shenanigans

Treasurer retakes post

after brief departure
W e here at the Alligator have been having a tough
time trying to figure out what's going on with
Student Body Treasurer Lindsay Cosimi.
First she unexpectedly resigned.
Then she wasn't signed up for classes.
Then she had personal problems.
But on Tuesday, her unannounced holiday came to an
end.
At the Student Senate meeting, Cosimi was to announce
three candidates to replace her as Student Body treasurer.
One of those candidates just happened to be herself.
And then, in a unanimous decision, she won.
She was jubilant.
We were left scratching our heads.
The problem was that the list of candidates had only
been announced earlier that day. There was no time for
anyone to start investigating the other nominees.
To most people, Cosimi was the only known contend-
er.
But we think the vote should have been more than just
a rubber stamp.
Students and senators should have had more time to
thoroughly evaluate each candidate.
A rushed vote pitting Cosimi against some unknowns
isn't our idea.of responsible government.
We eventually found out that the two other candidates
were actually Cosimi's underlings, Assistant Treasurers
Freya Birdie and Gabrielle Leon.
They were running against their boss.
Talk about a conflict of interest.
Leon withdrew her nomination before the meeting.
That meant Cosimi really only brought two potential
names to the meeting, rather than.the required three.
And the fact that it was a unanimous selection just
brings up more questions. There are many parties in
Student Senate, all with different agendas.
So where was the opposition?
Cosimi originally resigned amid speculation that
she was having a great deal of personal trouble. Senate
President John Boyles speculated that it must have been
"something dramatic, something rough."
But her dilemma was really just academic. She re-
ceived a grade of incomplete that turned into an E for the
Spring.
That dropped her grade point average for the Spring
semester below 2.0, the minimum qualification for SG of-
ficers.
Now the E is gone.
So we have serious questions about the legality of
Cosimi resuming her position. But we don't have any
answers.
It's not because we haven't tried. Our reporters have
done everything they could to coax information out of UF
officials.
But SG adviser Chris Cupoli wasn't talking. He claimed
that it was an in-house matter for SG. Cupoli tried to push
the responsibility for investigating SG onto SG itself.
And the rest of the administration was similarly eva-
sive. We were just bounced around from one office to the
next. Everyone refused to comment.
We want this administration to seriously look into these
problems with Cosimi. If SG isn't following its own-rules,
students should be hearing about it. That's not an internal
affair.
Right now there's just no accountability.
And we're not okay with that.

But consider what these young men were concerned
about. They sought to restrict the admission of women
and minorities to what was once an all-white, all-male
university. "In Defense of Elitism," an essay published
in CAP's official magazine, Prospect, is a fair summary
of the group's politics.
CAP didn't just oppose affirmative action. They sup-
ported reinstating a rule that had limited the number
of women in each freshman class to 300 out of about
1,100.
They also had quite a mean streak. A 1984 Prospect
article on AIDS joked, "Scientists must find humans,
or rather, homosexuals, to submit themselves to ex-
perimental treatment. Perhaps Princeton's Gay Alliance
may want to hold an election." Another article, on sexu-
al harassment, included photos of a woman in a bikini.
It goes without saying that CAP's politics should
trouble Republicans and Democrats alike. But who can
say whether Alito's views have changed since the '70s,
when he became a Concerned Alumnus?

So what do we make of this miniature scandal? At
best, Alito has been caught in an obvious lie. At worst,
he harbors beliefs that would make Pat Buchanan
cringe.
White House officials insist that a nominees' personal
views should have no bearing on their jurisprudence.
But it's hard not to question some of Alito's deci-
sions in light of what we know about his politics. For
example, he voted in 1991 to uphold a Pennsylvania
law requiring women to notify their husbands before
getting an abortion.
The Supreme Court overturned the ruling the next
year. In her opinion,, Sandra Day O'Connor wrote, "A
state may not give to a man the kind of dominion over
his wife that parents exercise over their children."
Alito may be 30 years removed from the Cbncerned
Alumni of Princeton, but on the ideological scale, he's
right next door.
Jake Ramsey is a history junior.

SG works to list textbook requirements online


after reading Tuesday's editorial column
regarding textbook adoption, I feel it is
A duty as Student Body president to
share pertinent information surrounding the
issue. I have been researching and working on
this problem since the day I was elected, and
textbook adoption is an issue that affects every
student at UF.
First off, I must say that Janie Fouke, the
provost, has been extremely open to students'
concerns and ideas, so the Alligator's argu-
ment that she did not obtain student input is
unfounded. I have had countless productive

Letters to the .
Cosimi fiasco highlights SG problems
I don't think that anywhere outside of
World Wrestling Entertainment has there
been such a strange situation as someone
resigning her elected position only to regain
it by nominating herself back to the post.
However, never say never in Student
Government, because that is just what has
happened in the past month.
I will not question the integrity of UF's
SG officials, because their integrity went out
the window the moment they got a taste
of power, whether in their Greek house,
Cabinet or Student Senate. I do question
how the SG advisers allowed something
like this to happen. I am very disappointed
in how this whirlwind of events transpired
without someone checking into what really
went down.


conversations on this issue, and she maintains
an open-door policy toward students seeking
to share ideas and opinions. This is evidenced
by her willingness to terminate the unfair
international fee that affected so many of our
students.
In response to the argument that students
have not shared their input on the issue of
textbook adoption, I contend that many stu-
dents have voiced their concerns, both to me
and to other officials on campus. Furthermore,
the Student Senate passed a resolution on
textbook adoption shortly before our Winter


A Student Body treasurer who resigns her
post does not "live and die" for her position,
as the Alligator has quoted Lindsay Cosimi
saying. Nobody should live and die for an
SG post; but that's hardly the point. The
student body deserves a full and complete
explanation of this situation from someone,
either from an adult, or one of the wannabe
adults crawling around SG.

Spring semester began, only slightly more
than half of classes had listed pertinent text-


the original campaign due to the incomplete
grade she received last Spring semester. If
this is correct, then I see no reason for her to
have the political right to resign.
She should have, in fact, been removed
from office.
She should not have retained any of the
rights as acting treasurer, such as the right
to nominate her replacements. Therefore,
she should not have been able to nominate
herself;.She is still an illegitimate Student
Body treasurer and should resign.
Her manipulation of the rules of the
Senate is unethical, and it casts a shady light

also find it troubling that she knew about
her ineligibility to hold office last Fall, but
she didn't resign until January.
Her reasoning for resigning was pur-

ty's move to strictly enforce its textbook policy,
and student input has played an integral role
in the university's new policy and continues
to do so.
Students should not have to pay the dif-

The education of the students rests on the free
exchange of information and ideas, and when
any amount of that information is denied, our
university's ability to educate suffers.

president.

had wrongfully manipulated the rules of the
Senate to get re-elected that the truth behind
her resignation was finally.brought out into
the open.
Cosimi is quoted in yesterday's article as
saying, "I am dealing with some issues right
now that I prefer to deal with personally."
Although she may have wanted to person-
ally deal with her ineligibility to serve as
treasurer, it is not up to her. It is our right as
voting members of this SG to be informed of
that information.
I find the Student Senate's decision to
re-elect Cosimi unprincipled. I believe that
Cosimi is still illegitimate and I ask for her
resignation.

Forget the traditional gym, climb to a better body


Sorkouts that involve
great heights give
Great results.
Chris Janiszewski, a route
setter at Gainesville Rock Gym,
lost 35 pounds in just 6 months
after he started rock climbing.
"You work different mus-
ces," Janiszewski said. "It's an
all-body workout."
The walls at Vera H
Gainesville Rock Gym,
704 S Main St., span as
high as 32 feet above
the ground. The walls
indude various routes :
of boulder climbing, ,
which are closer to the
ground, and routes that work
other muscles and provide
various levels of difficulty.
"My legs hurt like hell," said
Zoe Selva, a first-time climber.
"It's a workout for the arms and
for the legs."
Gainesville Rock Gym offers
training for first-time climbers
included with the initial day
pass. It also prides itself on its
friendly members.
"You meet a lot of people,"
Janiszewski said. "I can't think
of a single member unwilling to


climb with you."
Another workout reaching
to the sky and causing painful
legs is running up the stairs at
the Ben Hill Griffin Stadium on
campus.
"It's peaceful here," said
Natalie Haynes, a freshman at
UE "It's great to see the sta--
dium when it's not
adzi-Antich crowded."
Haynes, along
with many other
students, comes to
I. the stadium a cou-
ple times a week
to do a variation of
workouts, indud-
ing running to the top of the
stadium or running the stairs
around its circumference.
"You don't have to go all the
way up," Haynes said of the
90-row stadium. "Do combina-
tions. Just what you feel like."
There are endless modifica-
tions to the stadium workouts
that can mold to any fitness
level and achieve most people's
fitness goals.
Whether it's rocks or stairs,
try climbing toward a healthier
you.

will spend time away from their
lover. And although the struggles
that go along with forced isolation
suck--desire, boredom, phone bills 4
-I've found ways to deal.
Can spending time away from
your lover actually make the relationship
better?
As most successful couples would agree,
communication is an essential element in the
"making it work" pyramid. When you're
hours away from your honey, talking on the
phone is really the closest you'll get to con-
necting. And now that cell phones have ren-
dered long-distance calls a matter of roaming
and reception, there's no reason why your
communication skills can't be put to the test.


If you're at a loss of words when sex is out
of the equation, you might want to reconsider
if this relationship is worth the devotion.
Spending time alone can also be a great
opportunity to get work done. And I don't
mean implants.
As anyone who's had their heart broken
SMcDowell can attest, it's important to have a
life outside of your lover. So pick
Sup a sport, work on your resume
or join a book club. In addition
-. to keeping your mind off who
S o you're missing, itll make you a
more interesting person to come
back to.
Finally, remember just why you're forced
to spend time apart. If it's school, welcome
the opportunity to work hard without the
distraction. If you're visiting family or on
vacation, enjoy the chance to spend time with
your little brother or get some rest.
Ultimately, while its cear that phone
sex is no substitute for skin-on-skin, if you
have to be away, use your time wisely. And
remember how much fun it will be making
up for lost time.


By DANIELLE SIBILIO
Avenue Writer

For dramatic entertainment that will
make you think, "Frozen" won't leave you
out in the cold.
"Frozen," now playing through Jan. 29 at
the Hippodrome State Theatre, is the story of
a 10-year-old girl's disappearance'and its ef-
fect on the lives of her mother, murderer and
a criminal psychiatrist.
The psychiatrist gives the murderer,


Ralph, a series of tests to search for an expla-
nation, begging the question: "Is serial killing
an act of evil or illness?"
Throughout the play, written by Bryony
Lavery, the characters present themselves
through monologues.
Ultimately, "Frozen" focuses on more than
just the heartbreak of a family losing a child.
It portrays the natural human struggle with
forgiveness and understanding.

Same old stories at box office leave audiences bored


Sixth Oscar season pretty
much over and the sum-
- mer blockbusters still
months away, movie-goers are left
with the same old tripe devoid of
originality in the upcoming months.
For some time now, it seems
screenwriters, directors and produc-
ers have given up on creating origi-
nal ideas instead bombarding
movie connoisseurs with remakes,
sequels and "based-ons." While

the Guide
to dining out


this is not necessarily a bad Kevin
thing, for every "Brokeback
Mountain" and "King
Kong," there are a dozen
movies like "Cheaper by
the Dozen 2."
Let's take a look at last
week's releases.
"Glory Road" is based
on the true story of the Texas
Western basketball team, which
broke color barriers by having


I


fahadeo the first all African-
American starting line-
up. The movie boasts
of being inspiring and
dramatic, but in reality
it is just like every other
*i sports movie. I'm sure
"Glory Road" isn't that
bad, but I'd rather save
my $7 and watch "Remember the
Titans" or "The Mighty Ducks" for
free on HBO.


Then we have "Last Holiday." A
shy cookware saleswoman finds out
she has three weeks to live, decides
to throw caution to the wind and
live her now-short life to the fullest.
Once again we're left with a very for-
mulaic plot, and everyone will learn
some valuable lesson in the end
about chasing dreams. According
to varying reviews, Queen Latifah is
able to carry the movie well enough.
But really, why risk it?

Try the new food at Crispers...it's HOT! new
Most of us don't remember our college years as being times of transcendent culinary experience. entry
We fondly recall last night's pizza, eaten cold at 6AM, the infamous burger basket, or the item
belly bomb sub sandwich that provoked a three-day gastrointestinal meltdown. o 1 fO


Those days are over. Now, there are new gourmet creations from Crispers...
hot main dish items that are quick, delicious, and full of flavor combinations
you just can't get anywhere else. Use the coupons, save money, and try them all.
Here's what's waiting for you at Crispers...
SThe new Big BIG baked potato, a super-sized spud, covered
with yummy stuff likeTex-Mex chicken, savory pot roast in gravy, and lots more.
*That burger joint doesn't have gourmet flat bread creations,
but Crispers does. Nine varieties, with toppings including
Hawaiian, Parmesan Crisp, Spicy Shrimp, Margherita, and tons of others.
*Then, you're in for another treat with our HOT toasted sandwiches,
which includes the best Reuben you've ever tasted, probably.
You are what you eat.
Don't forget our garden-fresh salads, hearty stacked sandwiches,
and overstuffed wraps, too. Plus a huge selection of frozen treats.

I'm not saying to never go the
movies again. If you want some
light-hearted comedy with a serious
lesson, check out "Last Holiday." If
you want to cheer along with the
fans of Texas Western, walk down
"Glory Road." I would much rather
nab a movie pass from Blockbuster
though, and wait for the must-see
unoriginals like "X-Men 3," "Pirates

THURSDAY, JANUARY 19, 2006 U ALLIGATOR, 19


Reserves step up

BASKETBALL, from page 20


Walter Hodge lead the group with a career-high
18 points, including shooting 5 of 7 from behind the
3-point line.
David Huertas, Garrett Tyler and Jack Berry also
had career highs with 15, 7 and 5 points respective-
ly, including a dunk from Tyler that his teammates
have anticipated all season.
"Garrett can jump higher than Corey [Brewer],,
although Corey will tell you that's a lie," Adrian
Moss said. "I'm being serious, you can go roll a ball
out and tell Garrett to do anything. He can get you
anything you want from a dunking standpoint."
Tyler said after the game that the two tied in a
preseason vertical jump test, making out around 42
inches. And Donovan feels like the tale of Tyler's
dunk will only grow with time.
"Probably when he gets to be 45 or 50, it will
probably elevate to over Kentucky, overtime, put
us up by one; the story will certainly escalate, I'm
sure," he said.


ABRAMSON, from page 20


heard negotiations with the Harlem
Globetrotters' archenemy Washington
Generals failed after the Generals re-
fused to go down without swinging.
So here's where Donovan's sched-
uling (or lack thereof) could bite him
in the arse. What if the Gators end up
losing three or four games? Those stuffy
committee folks might suddenly look at
UF's No. 132 national strength of sched-
ule and erase their No. seed and pencil
ina 4 or5.
But forget the seeding for just a mo-
ment. The Gators are on the brink of be-
coming a true basketball powerhouse,
something that has never existed in the
state of Florida.
There are only two reasons UF


hasn't jumped into the elite class that,
in this decade, includes Duke, UConn,
Michigan State, North Carolina and
Kansas (Illinois is also on the bubble):
those terrible postseason exits which in-
dude five straight seasons with a first or
second round NCAA Tournament loss
(a trend that should end this year), and
that schedule that gives me a greater
chuckle than an episode of Sanford and
Son.
I'm always hearing complaints from
Gators fans that Duke and Kentucky get
more TV air time than Kate Moss after
an all-night binge, but can you blame
ESPN for not wanting to air those great
rivalry games between UF and Morgan
State?
And come conference season, it's
not like the SEC makes for thrilling TV
anyway. Yet, a mediocre Kentucky team
has owned the airways because of its


non-conference matchups against Iowa,
West Virginia, North Carolina, Indiana,
Louisville and Kansas. Ditto for Duke,
which faced Texas and Indiana before
the grueling ACC season.
Miami (who the Gators should play
every season) and Providence, UF's
toughest non-conference games outside
of the Coaches vs. Cancer tournament,
hardly compare. With a home advan-
tage second to none in college basket-
ball, the Gators' fans deserve to see at
least one national powerhouse each
December in Gainesville.
How about an annual matchup
with an ACC team other than FSU?
It makes sense geographically
How about a home-and-home with
UCLA? It would give the Gators West
Coast exposure. How about a game
against anyone other than Savannah
State?

* FRESHMAN POINT GUARD WALTER HODGE
LED UF'S BUSY BENCH, SCORING 18 POINTS.

By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer

There wasn't much to be decided at the O'Connell
Center Wednesday.
The Gators entered the game ranked No. 2 in the nation,
riding a 17-game home winning streak dating back to last
season. Savannah State came into Gainesville with no wins
against Division I opposition and without a player taller
than 6-foot-7 on its roster.
And after Wednesday's non-conference finale, the Gators
are now 18-0, the Tigers are still winless against Division I
competition, and they still don't have a player taller than 6-
foot-7, as evidenced by the Gators' 12 blocks in their 113-62
victory.
"You either get better or worse, and I feel like we got
better as a team," Al Horford said: "I think we're starting
to push the ball a little more in transition, which we haven't
been doing the last few games, and that's just good for our
team."
When the starters were iin te game, however, their only
competition was how many alley-oops and dunks they
could accumulate, with the crowd showing obvious disap-
pointment any time a fast break didn't end with a flush.
The Tigers were able to keep the game relatively cose
in the early going, edging as close as 16-6 before UF went
on a 41-17 run during the remainder of the half, including
one stretch during which the Gators scored 21 consecutive
points.

RECRUITING

Gators add Jones to top-ranked class


By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Writer

Consider it payback for the 31-3 thrashing
the Gators took at the hands of Alabama last
season.
In any case, don't expect Mike Shula to be
rooting Urban Meyer on in his pursuit of the
nation's No. 1 recruiting class.
Meyer and his staff have already snatched
.several recruits from the grasp of the Alabama
coach, including quarterback Tim Tebow and
linebacker Brandon Spikes.
Wednesday, linebacker AJ. Jones became
the latest to shun the Crimson Tide in favor of
the Gators, verbally committing to UF on Fox
Sports Net's Countdown to Signing Day.
"Florida has a great program and they
are headed in the right direction. They have
the No. 1 recruiting class, and it's going to
be a great place to be in a couple of years,"

Jones told the Tampa Tribune on Wednesday.
"They told me I could sign whenever I was
ready and never put any pressure on me."
At 6-foot-2,190 pounds,
Jones is considered under-
sized for a linebacker, but
makes up for it with out-
standing athleticism.
"He is just an excep-
tional player," said Harry
Hubbard, who coached
Jones at Tampa Middleton
Jones High. "I know he is a little
undersized, but once kids go off to college,
with the regimen of resting and eating, there
is no problem for him to pick up weight."
Jones' commitment came at a crucial time
for the Gators, whose recruiting class suffered
a blow after losing one of the nation's best
linebackers in Lany Grant.
Grant, a junior college transfer, failed to
qualify academically after not passing a math

class that is required by the Southeastern
Conference.
Grant, who qualifies for every Division I
conference aside from the SEC, is reportedly
considering Ohio State and Texas A&M.
Jones will be one of many recruits to take
his official visit to UF this weekend during
the Gators' busiest stretch of the recruiting
season.
Current UF commitments like Jones and
quarterback Tim Tebow could be helpful
in swaying visitors such as running backs
Knowshon Moreno and Mon Williams,
cornerback Patrick Robinson and offensive
lineman Daron Rose.
"I think the Florida Gators' coaching staff
and Coach Meyer have done an excellent job
of recruiting, and they have made [Jones] feel
like a big part of their program," Hubbard
said. "I know if they were recruiting me, I
would say yes. And not just because it is the
Gators."

was solved.

Andrew days before
heading to
Abramson Knoxville
Drew's Control and facing
aabramson@alligator.org their stiffest
competition
since defeating Syracuse and Wake

tournament, the Gators were treated
to a game against the Tigers. And
we're not talking the LSU Tigers,
Auburn Tigers, Memphis Tigers or
the endangered Siberian tigers.
We're talking the glorious
Savannah State Tigers, who have
averaged a grand spanking total of
0.5 wins the last two seasons. Give
the Tigers credit; I wasn't sure if
they'd hit double figures, let alone
the half-century mark.
But as the Gators fight their way
to the No. 1 ranking in the nation,
and their record and schedule be-
come the talk around college bas-
ketball, facing Savannah State dur-
ing SEC season (which wasn't Billy
Donovan's initial intention) makes
the Gators' already weak schedule
look that much more pitiful.
In all fairness, there's absolutely
no obligation on Donovan's part
to schedule tough non-conference
games.
In fact, if the Gators keep up their
current pace and remain undefeated
(unlikely as it is) or only lose a game
or two (which is very possible), they
will likely end up a No. 1 seed in the
NCAA tournament. In that scenario,
Donovan might as well have sched-
uled a November game against

THURSDAY, JANUARY 19, 2006 Students petition Levin -'Ut, Y2' Tim Hussin / Alligator Staff Third-year law student Natasha Chisolm signs a petition to increase diversity at the Levin College of Law on Wednesday. E SOME ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THE LAW SCHOOL'S LACK OF DIVERSITY. By JOHN W. COX Alligator Writer jcox@ailigator.org Seventeen of the 92 incoming Fall students to the UF Levin College of Law are not white. Ten of the college's 72 faculty are not white. Felix Felicier, a third-year UF law student, said it's not enough. "It's tough when you come in as a first-year law student and look in your classes and only see four or five students who look like you," said Felicier, who is Puerto Rican. The law school's 18.5 percent minority enrollnent this Fall places it near the bottom of the Association of American Universities' list of top schools this semester when ranked by minority enrollment, he said. About 100 students and faculty signed a petition at the UF law school today to encourage administrators to face its lack of diversity Felicier and several other members of the American Constitution Society's local chapter organized the petition, which will continue until the administration takes notice, said thirdyear law student Vatrice Perrin. The minority statistics this Fall are misleading, said Associate Dean Patrick Shannon. For the first time, the law school accepted one pool of student applications simultaneously for both the Summer and Fall semesters, Shannon said. A total of 298 students enrolled in the entire group: 206 in the Summer and 92 in the Fall. Of the 298 total, 22.8 percent were minorities, Shannon said. But even at this percentage, UF has a long way to go, Perrin said. "This law school, since I came, has said year after year that they want to be a Top 10 public law school," Felicier said. "We're tired of being SEE PETITION, PAGE 4 Student's purse stolen while shopping at UF bookstore UPD believe theft committed by team of four By STEPHANIE RODRIGUEZ Alligator Writer srodriguez@aiigator.org Police are searching for a team of four people who stole a student's purse at the UF Bookstore. A woman was caught on a security video Dec. 16 grabbing a UF student's purse while three accomplices roamed the bookstore as lookouts, according to a University Police Department release. "It is obvious that they were working together from looking at the video," said UPD spokesman Joe Sharkey. The UF student set her purse down because she was in a rush to get to her graduation ceremony for the College of Engineering, said Dave Moore, human resource manager at the UF Bookstore. "It was an open opportunity for someone to steal her bag," Moore said. "She had a lot going on." The woman who grabbed the purse took out the contents and left the purse behind, according to the release. Moore said it is unusual for thefts to occur in the bookstore. "The most common thing that happens is that people take laptops from the library," Moore said. "Students need to be more careful where they leave things."

She got her wish -but only until March 17. If the Collegiate Living Organization cannot come up with $500,000 to repair its co-op facility, which does not meet UF's strict standards, the university will be forced to sell the land to the highest bidder. And McAlister, along with about 70 other residents, will be forced to find a new home. But because UF holds a trust UF with the CLO, the university Administration cannot profit from the public sale of the land -all money for the valuable property will go to help low-income students for whom the trust was originally intended. That, however, is of little comfort to McAlister, who was approved to move into the CLO on Dec. 9 by UF officials because she couldn't afford to live in Sledd Hall anymore. McAlister said the CLO's rent was cheaper by $1,000 a semester. But a UF investigation, which concluded a month earlier, detailed repairs needed to get the 33-year-old facility up to university standards. "I feel hurt, deceived, insulted," McAlister said. "It's upsetting that they care so little about each individual student. It's really very upsetting to my family. They finally thought there was a sense of relief." "They're not being considerate to less fortunate students," she said of UF officials, with whom the trust deed dates back to 1947. "For some people this is the only option they have."

2, ALLIGATOR N THURSDAY, JANUARY 19, 2006 News Today ON CAMPUS Student Organization Fair ends today at Reitz Union The annual Student Organization Fair continues today from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the Reitz Union Colonnade with more than 70 organizations planning to attend. The fair kicked off Wednesday, and organizers say this year is unique because no organization can be on display for both days. "Because of the large number of organizations who want to participate, we can only have organizations sign up for one day," said fair Chairman Yordanos Eyoel. IDEAL, a group of official ambassadors of the Office of Student Involvement, sponsors the fair and runs all of the necessary operations, such as group registration, setup and organization. The purpose of the Student Organization Fair is to bring all student organizations together to give students an easier way to learn about the groups on campus. "It is important to get involved because you need to take responsibility for something in your life, whether it's your faith or studies, but something you're passionate about," said Bobby Angel, a member of the Catholic Student Fellowship. There are more than 700 organizations on campus, so it is easy to find one that suits every passion. -SARAH FESTA aIIe -II w"Copyrighted Material u Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" CORRECTIONS Any current UF student is eli* gible to apply for the scholarships offered by La Casita, regardless of ethnicity.

THURSDAY, JANUARY 19, 2006 U ALLIGATOR, 3 STUDENT GOVERNMENT Incomplete grade resulted in Cosimi's ineligibility By LYNDSEY LEWIS Alligator Writer -NIewis@alligator.org UF officials say they cannot reveal why Student Body Treasurer Lindsay Cosimi, who received an incomplete grade last Spring, was not determined ineligible to hold office at an earlier date. Cosimi said she first received a letter informing her of her ineligibility toward the end of Fall, about halfway through her year-long term as treasurer. Although the Dean of Students Office forced her resignation in December, Student Senate returned Cosimi to her former position through a unanimous vote at Tuesday night's Senate meeting. She had nominated herself, along with two other candidates, to take over her recently vacated position. As treasurer, Cosimi controls more than $11 million of stuCostm rat dent money "The focus of this, in my opinion, is that I'm a very good treasurer," she said. Dean of Students Gene Zdziarski said an unusually long amount of time progressed from the time Cosimi became ineligible for office to the date when she resigned from her post. "We run checks a couple times a semester regarding student leader eligibilty," Zdziarski said. "Most cases are resolved in less than 30 days." Cosimi said that although her incomplete grade initially did not affect het grade point average, it automatically changed to a failing grade of E by the time Fall semester began. However, she said she was unaware of this change when she began classes in the Fall. "Immediately upon receiving my grades (in Spring), I was working on rectifying the situation," she said. "(By Fall) I had kind of put everything so far behind me and was focusing on my job and my classes." The failing grade left Cosimi's Spring GPA too low to comply with university standards, which state that officials must maintain a "minimum 2.0 Grade Point Average for the semester enrolled previous to the election excluding summer semester." Cosimi was elected to her position in Spring 2005, meaning the Spring semester determined her eligibility. By the lime she learned she would have to resign, the deadline to appeal the decision had already passed, but Cosimi said she was doing her best to establish her eligibility to hold office. "They were looking for documentation upon documentation, and I did everything in my power to provide that for them," she said. Cosimi was eventually allowed to file an appeal past deadline, a decision which Zdziarski and Student Government adviser Chris Cupoli said they could not comment on. Now that she is set to complete the remainder of her term, Cosini said she is looking forward to continuing her work as Student Body treasurer. "I couldn't even begin speculating" on why the eligibility screening process lasted so long, she said. "I'm really just excited to put the entire matter behind me and just continue to be a good Student Body treasurer." Ex-ambassador argues national security is a joint effort E SODERBERG PUSHED UF STUDENTS TO GET INVOLVED By LINDSEY FRANCO Alligator Contributing Writer Former U.S. Ambassador Nancy Soderberg called on America to join forces with other countries to help improve U.S. national security in a speech at the Reitz Union Wednesday night. "The U.S. is less secure today than it should be because it's blinded by the superpower myth," she said to a crowd of 400 listeners. Soderberg discussed what she called the "dangerous fallacy' of the myth in her speech titled "The Superpower Myth -The Use and Misuse of American Might," which followed two speeches she presented earlier in the day titled, "Preventing Conflict in Africa" and "Can the U.N. Be Reformed?" She described the superpower myth as a misconception Americans hold about the United States having more economic, cultural and military power than other countries. She argued that blindly believing this, has led to a weak national security program. "The superpower myth has led us to single-handedly do it all," she said. "There is no way the U.S. can, in this day in age, protect itself on its own. "The U.S. is less secure today than it should be because it's blinded by the superpower myth." Nancy Soderberg Former U.S. Ambassador Her speech highlighted four issues currently challenging the United States, which included enabling reform in the Arab world, advances in the Middle East peace process, decreasing ownership of weapons of mass destruction and boosting the economic progress of other nations. Her speech concluded with pushing students to take advantage of the opportunities UF provides. "Go try and make sure you love what you're doing," she said. Soderberg said she was pushed to go into politics by her Georgetown professor, who later became former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. Soderberg was a senior foreign policy advisor to President Clinton, a third-ranking official at the National Secuirity Council, a U.S. ambassador to the United It is estimated that 1 in 100 Floridians are HIV-positive. Protect Yourselt! Nations and she is currently a vice president at the International Crisis Group. She was invited to speak at UF through the international Center's International Speakers Program. "Go to the trouble to get the information and read about the issues," said International Center Dean Dennis Jett. "That's the very purpose of bringing someone like Nancy here: to get students to think about these issues." The Center of African Studies, the department of political science and the Transnational and Global Studies Center also sponsored the speech.

4, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, JANUARY 19, 2006 Students call for a change PETITION, from page 1: paid lip service." This is not the first time faculty and students have objected to the law school's handling of minority issues. In 1999, professor Kenneth B. Nunn stepped down as associate dean of the law college in a move to influence change, Shannon said. "He stepped down On as saying we needed CghMPUS to do a better job," he said. "It was a vey positive thing for our law school." Shannon said the school has since made changes to make the school's environment better for minorities. Professor Michelle Jacobs also left when Nunn stepped down. Both have since returned. Although things have been somewhat better since the walk-out, UF has always had problems with minority issues, and it may be difficult to change, Jacobs said. "I think it's sort of a pipe dream that an institution of this size and history is going to turn it around," she said. The problem is not exclusive to the law college or UF, but the university's position as the flagship school in the state makes it more of a problem, she said. Perrin said she thinks many qualifled minority students are choosing not to attend the law college because of its lack of diversity. "As of now, I wouldn't encourage minorities to come hre," Perrin said. "You don't have reflections of yourself." Felicier said the petition is an effort to change a communication gap between minority students and the administration. "There's a definite gap between what the students of color think and what the administration thinks the students of color think," Felicier said. CLO land could be sold at auction CLO, from page 1 Associate Vice President for Student Affairs Mike Rollo said UF wants to ensure that the CLO will not burn to the ground like the Sigma Nu Fraternity house did in 1968. "You talk about disrupting a student's life," Rollo said, citing a UF report showing CLO kitchen fire-code violations. "Every year, there are circumstances where students lose their lives in fires. We have very strong feelings about it being safe. That's what's driving this. They are our students." Roo said McAlister's situation occurred because CLO investigation information "just hadn't been circulated out," noting that UF has hundreds of employees. Rollo said when the property is sold, according to the trust, the money must go toward needy student scholarships. He said he has not been in any discussions about UF purchasing the property, which would have to be sold in a public auction. "There is no ulterior motive," he said. Attomeys from UF and the CLO are now meeting to disciss the future of the 75-year-old organization, and plans are in place for the CLO to meet with UF this Friday to discuss solutions. Rollo said CLO residents will be pro-rated $80 a month for food if and when UF closes their kitchen, which officials said would happen last Friday. Rollo said McAlister will not get preferential treatment if she decides to leave the CLO. "I feel hurt, deceived, insulted. It's upsetting that they care so little about each individual student. It's really very upsetting to my family. They finally thought there was a sense of relief." Elizabeth "Izzy" McAlister UF student "We have told students that they will not be penalized financially if they move out," Rollo said. "We serve as their advisers. We've advised students to move out as soon as possible. I would not live there, nor would I let my children live there, and I told them that. It's very dilapidated. It's dangerous. It's in bad need of repair. It's the not the kind of place UF would allow on its campus." He said Buckman Hall was the last co-op on UF's campus. "They just don't work well today," he said. "Students did not really buy into sharing the work. That doesn't appear to be the way many students want to live today." \ ~22 Save and save again.

THURSDAY, JANUARY 19, 2006 0 ALLIGATOR, 5 ON CAMPUS Book fiasco shocks professors By MARIA LAVERGHETTA Alligator Contributing Writer James Frey told a few white lies to millions of people -and admitted it. The reading world gasped when Frey said on a Jan. 11 airing of "Larry King Live" that he exaggerated parts of his bestselling non-fiction book, "A Million Little Pieces." The book received wide recognition as a selection for Oprah's Book Club in fall 2005. By not putting a disclaimer on the book and not saying that he exaggerated, he discredited himself, said David Leverenz, UF English professor and author of the book "Manhood and the American Renaissance." "If you present [the book] as true, it has to be as true as you make it," Leverenz said. Frey disputed exaggerations raised by an investigative Web site, The Smoking Gun, saying the fabricated events were only on 18 pages of the 432-page book -hardly proving that his memoir was completely false, he said during the interview. "This is again a case where an incredibly minute portion of the book .is being picked apart," Frey said during the interview. "I had a long drug and alcohol history. My.memory's very subjective. Everyone's memory is subjective." The Smoking Gun stated that claims in Frey's book were unverifiable via public records, some of which conflicted with stories from the book. "Even with this coming to light, it doesn't change my opinion of this book." Hayley Singleton UF student Publishers originally turned down the book as a novel, so Frey said he renamed it a memoir through the suggestion' of his agent, Molly Friedrich, said senior writer Marc Peyser in his Newsweek article released Monday. Despite Frey's admissions, Oprah Winfrey, whose book dub is largely credited with the book's success, came out in defense of Frey's memoir. Leverenz said he thought Winfrey did the wrong thing by backing the book after the truth came out. Leverenz noted that it would be wrong if he, as a member of the academic writing world, fabricated a part of his own book. Roger M. Thompson, UF English professor and author of "Filipino English and Taglish: Language Switching from Multiple Perspectives," compared Frey's plight to a traffic accident, noting that everyone's perception of events is different. "I think a lot of people who write their own biographies have fiction in them," Thompson said. "They might be trying to make a point." Hayley Singleton, a college student and fan of the book, said she felt the scrutiny the book has come under is unwarranted. ."I'm actually pretty shocked that [The Smoking Gun] went out of their way to do this," she said. "I'm sure that there are plenty of other books that they could do this to if they wanted to." She said she loved that in the book, Frey did everything his way -something she said she related to. "Even with this coming to light, it doesn't change my opinion of this book," Singleton said. Poolside jobs open By KIM CRUTS Alligator Contributing Writer Even the bitter chill of a Gainesville winter shouldn't discourage penniless students on the prowl from employment at the pool. Lynne Pahner, coordinator of Community Outreach Training for the UF CPR & Safety Training Center, knows the ideal part-time job for college students. "There's a huge shortage of lifeguards every single season," Palmer said. "Colleg-aged students are the perfect people to lifeguard." On Monday, the training center begins the first of two American Red Cross lifeguard certification courses scheduled this semester. Upon completion of the class, students hold three-year certifications in both lifeguard training and first aid, along with a one-year certification in CPR. The $135 course spans almost three weeks and is broken up into 10 or 11 class periods. Classes take place during evenings and on weekends, with locations alternating between UF classrooms and the 300 Club pool, located at 3715 NW 12th Ave. There is -a delicate balance required to meet the demand for classes in the Spring without offering more classes than can be filled, Palmer said. "It's tough because On you're trying to break Campus down 36 hours that will fit into the college population's time frames," she said. There is a certain glory that comes with being a lifeguard, Palmer said. "You're looked up to from kids who are 5 and think that you're God, to the 17-year-olds where the girls think all the boys are cute and vice-versa," she said. "And the parents give you the same admiration because you're guarding their children; you're keeping them safe. So there are a lot more benefits to lifeguarding than just being certified."

6, ALLIGATOR U THURSDAY, JANUARY 19, 2006 Editorial Shenanigans Treasurer retakes post after brief departure here at the Alligator have been having a tough time trying to figure out what's going on with Student Body Treasurer Lindsay Cosimi. First she unexpectedly resigned. Then she wasn't signed up for classes. Then she had personal problems. But on Tuesday, her unannounced holiday came to an end. At the Student Senate meeting, Cosimi was to announce three candidates to replace her as Student Body treasurer. One of those candidates just happened to be herself. And then, in a unanimous decision, she won. She was jubilant. We were left scratching our heads. The problem was that the list of candidates had only been announced earlier that day. There was no time for anyone to start investigating the other nominees. To most people, Cosimi was the only known contender. But we think the vote should have been more than just a rubber stamp. Students and senators should have had more time to thoroughly evaluate each candidate. A rushed vote pitting Cosimi against some unknowns isn't our idea.of responsible government. We eventually found out that the two other candidates were actually Cosimi's underlings, Assistant Treasurers Freya Birdie and Gabrielle Leon. They were running against their boss. Talk about a conflict of interest. Leon withdrew her nomination before the meeting. That meant Cosimi really only brought two potential names to the meeting, rather than.the required three. And the fact that it was a unanimous selection just brings up more questions. There are many parties in Student Senate, all with different agendas. So where was the opposition? Cosimi originally resigned amid speculation that she was having a great deal of personal trouble. Senate President John Boyles speculated that it must have been "something dramatic, something rough." But her dilemma was really just academic. She received a grade of incomplete that turned into an E for the Spring. That dropped her grade point average for the Spring semester below 2.0, the minimum qualification for SC officers. Now the E is gone. So we have serious questions about the legality of Cosimi resuming her position. But we don't have any answers. It's not because we haven't tried. Our reporters have done everything they could to coax information out of UF officials. But SC adviser Chris Cupoli wasn't talking. He claimed that it was an in-house matter for SG. Cupoli tried to push the responsibility for investigating SC onto SC itself. And the rest of the administration was similarly evasive. We were just bounced around from one office to the next. Everyone refused to comment. We want this administration to seriously look into these problems with Cosimi. If SC isn't following its own rules, students should be hearing about it. That's not an internal affair. Right now there's just no accountability. And we're not okay with that. 0 the independent florida alligator Tom Durrenberger OPINIONS EDITOR Emily Yehle EDITOR Bridget Carey MANAGING EDITOR The Allgator encourages comments from readers.

Opinions ALLIGATOR www.aIigator.org/opinions "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" .'fl. 1' i ti. Alito crippled by d ven for a Supreme Court nominee, Samuel Alito is a controversial man. Over the last week, the Senate Judiciary Committee grilled him on abortion, the right to privacy, corporate regulation and the separation of powers. Teams of lawyers poured over his every word. He's even undergone an FBI background check. It's surprising, then, that a little thing like Alito's membership in the Concerned Alumni of Princeton caused such a stir in Thursday's hearing. -At first blush, the organization seems harmless, even civic-minded. Concerned Alumni -what could be more vanilla than that? But consider what these young men were concerned about. They sought to restrict the admission of women and minorities to what was once an all-white, all-male university. "In Defense of Elitism," an essay published in CAP's official magazine, Prospect, is a fair summary of the group's politics. CAP didn't just oppose affirmative action. They supported reinstating a rule that had limited the number of women in each freshman class to 300 out of about 1,100. They also had quite a mean streak. A 1984 Prospect article on AIDS joked, "Scientists must find humans, or rather. homosexuals, to submit themselves to experimental treatment. Perhaps Princeton's Gay Alliance may want to hold an election." Another article, on sexual harassment, included photos of a woman in a bikini. It goes without saying that CAP's politics should trouble Republicans and Democrats alike. But who can say whether Alito's views have changed since the '70s, when he became a Concerned Alumnus? ubious affiliation Jake Ramsey Most college students do things Speaking Out they regret as full-grown adults. Here at UF, 67 students have joined the Facebook group "Drink Vodka and Have Sex." Not one is likely to mention the club in a job interview. But that's exactly what Alito did in 1985 when he listed CAP on a White House job application. Instead of resigning from the group, as former Sen. Bill Bradley did in 1973, Alito boasted about his membership. To claim now that he "doesn't recall" having joined in the first place -well, that would be more plausible coming from a former member of "Drink Vodka and Have Sex." So what do we make of this miniature scandal? At best, Alito has been caught in an obvious lie. At worst, he harbors beliefs that would make Pat Buchanan cringe. White House officials insist that a nominees' personal views should have no bearing on their jurisprudence. But it's hard not to question some of Alito's decisions in light of what we know about his politics. For example, he voted in 1991 to uphold a Pennsylvania law requiring women to notify their husbands before getting an abortion. The Supreme Court overturned the ruling the next year. In her opinion, Sandra Day O'Connor wrote, "A state may not give to a man the kind of dominion over his wife that parents exercise over their children." Alito may be 30 years removed from the Concerned Alumni of Princeton, but on the ideological scale, he's right next door. Jake Ramsey is a history junior.

THURSDAY, JANUARY 19, 2006 E ALLIGATOR, 7 Guest Column SG works to list textbook requirements online fterreading Tuesday's editorial column regarding textbook adoption, I feel it is my duty as Student Body president to share pertinent information surrounding the issue. I have been researching and working on this problem since the day I was elected, and textbook adoption is an issue that affects every student at TIP First off, I must say that Janie Fouke, the provost, has been extremely open to students' concerns and ideas, so the Alligator's argument that she did not obtain student input is unfounded. I have had countless productive Letters to "Ie Ed t r Cosimi fiasco highlights SG problems I don't think that anywhere outside of World Wrestling Entertainment has there been such a strange situation as someone resigning her elected position only to regain it by nominating herself back to the post. However, never say never in Student Government, because that is just what has happened in the past month. I will not question the integrity of UF's SG officials, because their integrity went out the window the moment they got a taste of power, whether in their Greek house, Cabinet or Student Senate. I do question how the SG advisers allowed something like this to happen. I am very disappointed in how this whirlwind of events transpired without someone checking into what really went down. conversations on this issue, and she maintains an open-door policy toward students seeking to share ideas and opinions. This is evidenced by her willingness to terminate the unfair international fee that affected so many of our students. In response to the argument that students have not shared their input on the issue of textbook adoption, I contend that many students have voiced their concerns, both to me and to other officials on campus. Furthermore, the Student Senate passed a resolution on textbook adoption shortly before our Winter A Student Body treasurer who resigns her post does not "live and die" for her position, as the Alligator has quoted Lindsay Cosimi saying. Nobody should live and die for an SG post; but that's hardly the point. The student body deserves a full and complete explanation of this situation from someone, either from an adult or one of the wannabe adults crawling around SG. Nicholas Capezza Former Student Senator UF Alumnus Treasurer was never legitimate candidate Based on the information in yesterday's front-page article, it sounds as if Lindsay Cosimi was an illegitimate candidate during Break, and I hope that 0,4 the Senate is able to implement even more beneficial changes on behalf of the student body. Students are not always notified about Joe Goldberg the books that are Speaking Out required in a given semester. Before the Spring semester began, only slightly more than half of classes had listed pertinent textthe original campaign due to the incomplete grade she received last Spring semester. If this is correct; then I see no reason for her to have the political right to resign. She should have, in fact, been removed from office. She should not have retained any of the rights as acting treasurer, such as the right to nominate her replacements. Therefore, she should not have been able to nominate herself. She is still an illegitimate Student Body treasurer and should resign. Her manipulation of the rules of the Senate is unethical, and it casts a shady light tn UF as an institute of higher learning. I also find it troubling that she knew about her ineligibility to hold office last Fall, but she didn't resign until January. Her reasoning for resigning was purbook information. I fully support the university's move to strictly enforce its textbook policy, and student input has played an integral role in the university's new policy and continues to do so. Students should not have to pay the difference for illegitimate textbook sale policies. The education of the students rests on the free exchange of information and ideas, and when any amount of that information is denied, our university's ability to educate suffers. Joe Goldberg is the current Student Body president. posefully vague. It was not until after she had wrongfully manipulated the rules of the Senate to get re-elected that the truth behind her resignation was finally.brought out into the open. -Cosimi is quoted in yesterday's article as saying, "I am dealing with some issues right now that I prefer to deal with personally." Although she may have wanted to personally deal with her ineligibility to serve as treasurer, it is not up to her. It is our right as voting members of this SG to be informed of that information. I find the Student Senate's decision to re-elect Cosini unprincipled. I believe that Cosini is still illegitimate and I ask for her resignation. Ryan P.

It's on his right arm hidden under his shirt sleeve. It's a symbol of his love of hiking and a bond between him and his 17-or-so children. Randy Akerson, the 54-yearold owner of the Burrito Bros. Taco Co. on 13th Street, hasn'tsired any offspring in the traditional sense. But for about 30 years, the professorial man in the round glasses and his ever-expanding family of countercultural employees have been feeding burritos to generations of Gainesville residents. "My philosophy is to get a nickel from you three times a week rather than a quarter once a week," Akerson said, adding that as long as he's in Gainesville, people will be able to find quality, inexpensive food. Akerson arrived in Gainesville 30 years ago with a diploma from Macalester College and his new wife, Janet. Although he planned to study law, an injury suffered while waving goodbye to his wife lefthim in traction for months and scuttled any ideas of law school. "That night I had to be carried into Shands on a board," he said. To this day, Akerson doesn't understand what happened inside his body. But with one wave, he left his old life and embarked upon a project that no sane farm boy from the Lutheran hinterlands of Minnesota would undertake. Akerson and his wife bought the majority of what was then the Key West Taco Co. in the mid-'70s from two men who had assumed ownership only a year earlier. With nary a chain restaurant for miles, a Midwesterner with degrees in history and English eschewed lutefisk and started cooking pinto beans. "I knew nothing about the failure late of small businesses and especially nothing about the failure rate of restaurants," he said. And what better way to staff a restaurant run by someone who knew the southern stretch of the Appalachian Trail better than managerial skills thanwithyoung people dripping with tattoo ink? "People look at kids with tattoos and think, 'Oh, they're dirty,'" Akerson said, "but they are no predicate whatsoever 'for what kind of person they are." Akerson's hirng practices echoed those of Steve Solomon, owner of Leonardo's Pizza. At the time, they were two of the first business owners in Gainesville "ii s Tim Hussin / Alligator Staff J.R.

In about a week, however, Burrito Bros. will finish the move from its decades-old home along. 13th Street to a new spot about a block west on University Avenue. The new location will include tables, chicken dishes and beer, what Akerson believes to be the most logical partner to his menu of homemade items. One man who is sure to frequent the 'new location is Mark Rush, the UF economics professor who has arguably been the most vocal proponent of Akerson's restaurant for the past 20 years.

10, ALLIGATOR E THURSDAY, JANUARY 19, 2006 Beating long distance s my boss so aptly put it on my way A out of town the other day, "Students really get around these days." And although she'd probably be shocked to know just how much we "get around," she really had a point. At a time in our lives when home is often more conceptual than literal, it's inMaghar evitable that at some point students will spend time away from their lover. And although the struggles that go along with forced isolation suck-desire, boredom, phone bills -I've found ways to deal Can spending time away from your lover actually make the relationship better? As most successful couples would agree, communication is an essential element in the "making it work" pyramid. When you're hours away from your honey, talking on the phone is really the closest you'll get to connecting. And now that cell phones have rendered long-distance calls a matter of roaming and reception, there's no reason why your communication skills can't be put to the test. If you're at a loss of words when sex is out of the equation, you might want to reconsider if this relationship is worth the devotion. Spending time alone can also be a great opportunity to get work done. And I don't mean implants. As anyone who's had their heart broken McDowell can attest, it's important to have a life outside of your lover. So pick up a sport, work on your resume or join a book club. In addition to keeping your mind off who you're missing, it'll make you a more interesting person to come back to. Finally, remember just why you're forced to spend time apart. If it's school, welcome the opportunity to work hard without the distraction. If you're visiting family or on vacation, enjoy the chance to spend time with your little brother or get some rest. Ultimately, while it's dear that phone sex is no substitute for skin-on-skin, if you have to be away, use your time wisely. And remember how much fun it will be making up for lost time. "Frozen" inspires thought By DANIELLE SIBILIO Avenue Writer For dramatic entertainment that will make you think, "Frozen" won't leave you out in the cold. "Frozen," now playing through Jan. 29 at the Hippodrome State Theatre, is the story of a 10-year-old girl's disappearanceand its effect on the lives of her mother, murderer and a criminal psychiatrist. The psychiatrist gives the murderer, Ralph, a series of tests to search for an explanation, begging the question: "Is serial killing an act of evil or illness?" Throughout the play, written by Bryony Lavery, the characters present themselves through monologues. Ultimately, "Frozen" focuses on more than just the heartbreak of a family losing a child. It portrays the natural human struggle with forgiveness and understanding.

For some time now, it seems screenwriters, directors and producers have given up on creating original ideas -instead bombarding movie connoisseurs with remakes, sequels and "based-ons." While dU51 R the Guide to dining out this is not necessarily a bad Kevin thing, for every "Brokeback Mountain" and "King Kong," there are a dozen movies like "Cheaper by the Dozen 2." Let's take a look at last week's releases. "Glory Road" is based on the true story of the Texas Western basketball team, which broke color barriers by having Mahadeo the first all AfricanAmerican starting lineup. The movie boasts of being inspiring and dramatic, but in reality it is just like every other *rjctr sports movie. I'm sure "Glory Road" isn't that bad, but I'd rather save my $7 and watch "Remember the Titans" or "The Mighty Ducks" for free on HBO. Then we have "Last Holiday." A shy cookware saleswoman finds out she has three weeks to live, decides to throw caution to the wind and live her now-short life to the fullest. Once again we're left with a very formulaic plot, and everyone will leam some valuable lesson in the end about chasing dreams. According to varying reviews, Queen Latifah is able to carry the movie well enough. But really, why risk it? I'm not saying to never go the movies again. If you want some light-hearted comedy with a serious lesson, check out "Last Holiday." If you want to cheer along with the fans of Texas Western, walk down "Glory Road." I would much rather nab a movie pass from Blockbuster though, and wait for the must-see unoriginals like "X-Men 3," "Pirates of the Caribbean 2" and "Superman Returns." --I n fo aSAVE $2 off any single F R E S S A L A D S A N D S U C H I menu item priced over $40A including our Try the new food at Crispers .it's HOT ne selection Most of us don't remember our college years as being times of transcendent culinary experience. entr e We fondly recall last night's pizza, eaten cold at 6AM, the infamous burger basket, or the items.

THURSDAY, JANUARY 19, 2006 U ALLIGATOR, 19 Reserves step up BASKETBALL, from page 20 Walter Hodge lead the group with a career-high 18 points, including shooting 5 of 7 from behind the 3-point line. David Huertas, Garrett Tyler and Jack Berry also had career highs with 15, 7 and 5 points respectively, including a dunk from Tyler that his teammates have anticipated all season. "Garrett can jump higher than Corey [Brewer], although Corey will tell you that's a lie," Adrian Moss said. "I'm being serious, you can go roll a ball out and tell Garrett to do anything. He can get you anything you want from a dunking standpoint." Tyler said after the game that the two tied in a preseason vertical jump test, maxing out around 42 inches. And Donovan feels like the tale of Tyler's dunk will only grow with time. "Probably when he gets to be 45 or 50, it will probably elevate to over Kentucky, overtime, put us up by one; the story will certainly escalate, I'm sure," he said. ABRAMSON, from page 20 heard negotiations with the Harlem Globetrotters' archenemy Washington Generals failed after the Generals refused to go down without swinging. So here's where Donovan's scheduling (or lack thereof) could bite him in the arse. What if the Gators end up losing three or four games? Those stuffy committee folks might suddenly look at UF's No. 132 national strength of schedule and erase their No. Zseed and pencil in a 4 or 5. But forget the seeding for just a moment. The Gators are on the brink of becoming a true basketball powerhouse, something that has never existed in the state of Florida. There are only two reasons UF hasn't jumped into the elite class that, in this decade, includes Duke, UConn, Michigan State, North Carolina and Kansas (Illinois is also on the bubble): those terrible postseason exits which include five straight seasons with a first or second mund NCAA Tournament loss (a trend that should end this year), and that schedule that gives me a greater chuckle than an episode of Sanford and Son. I'm always hearing complaints from Gators fans that Duke and Kentucky get more TV air time than Kate Moss after an all-night binge, but can you blame ESPN for not wanting to air those great rivalry games between UF and Morgan State? And come conference season, it's not like the SEC makes for thrilling TV anyway. Yet, a mediocre Kentucky team has owned the airways because of its non-conference matchups against Iowa, West Virginia, North Carolina, Indiana, Louisville and Kansas. Ditto for Duke, which faced Texas and Indiana before the grueling ACC season. Miami (who the Gators should play every season) and Providence, UF's toughest non-conference games outside of the Coaches vs. Cancer tournament, hardly compare. With a home advantage second to none in college basketball, the Gators' fans deserve to see at least one national powerhouse each December in Gainesville. How about an annual matchup with an ACC team other than FSU? It makes sense geographically. How about a home-and-home with UCLA? It would give the Gators West Coast exposure. How about a game against anyone other than Savannah State?

N FRESHMAN POINT GUARD WALTER HODGE LED UF'S BUSY BENCH, SCORING 18 POINTS. By DAN TREAT Alligator Staff Writer There wasn't much to be decided at the O'Connell Center Wednesday. The Gators entered the game ranked No. 2 in the nation, riding a 17-game home winning streak dating back to last season. Savannah State came into Gainesville with no wins against Division I opposition and without a player taller than 6-foot-7 on its roster. And after Wednesday's non-conference finale, the Gators are now 18-0, the Tigers are still winless against Division I competition, and they still don't have a player taller than 6foot-7, as evidenced by the Gators' 12 blocks in their 113-62 victory. "You either get better or worse, and I feel like we got better as a team," Al Horford said. "I think we're starting to push the ball a little more in transition, which we haven't been doing the last few games, and that's just good for our team." When the starters were in the game, however, their only competition was how many alley-oops and dunks they could accumulate, with the crowd showing obvious disappointment any time a fast break didn't end with a flush. The Tigers were able to keep the game relatively close in the early going, edging as close as 16-6 before UF went on a 41-17 run during the remainder of the half, including one stretch during which the Gators scored 21 consecutive points. Joakim Noah lead the Gators with 21 points, shooting 10 for 10 from the field to go along with six blocks, while Horford finished with four blocks and 10 rebounds in addition to scoring 9 points. With the game never in doubt, UF coach Billy Donovan was able to go to his bench early and often throughout the game, giving his reserves plenty of game experience. -SEE BASKETBALL, PAGE 19 RECRUITING Gators add Jones to top-ranked class By BRYAN JONES Alligator Writer Consider it payback for the 31-3 thrashing the Gators took at the hands of Alabama last season. In any case, don't expect Mike Shula to be rooting Urban Meyer on in his pursuit of the nation's No. 1 recruiting class. Meyer and his staff have already snatched ,several recruits from the grasp of the Alabama coach, including quarterback Tim Tebow and linebacker Brandon Spikes. Wednesday, linebacker A.J. Jones became the latest to shun the Crimson Tide in favor of the Gators, verbally committing to UF on Fox Sports Net's Countdown to Signing Day. "Florida has a great program and they are headed in the right direction. They have the No. 1 recruiting class, and it's going to be a great place to be in a couple of years," Jones told the Tampa Tribune on Wednesday "They told me I could sign whenever I was ready and never put any pressure on me." At 6-foot-2,190 pounds, Jones is considered undersized for a linebacker, but makes up for it with outstanding athleticism. "He is just an exceptional player," said Harry Hubbard, who coached Jones at Tampa Middleton Jon"u High. "I know he is a little undersized, but once kids go off to college, with the regimen of resting and eating, there is no problem for him to pick up weight." Jones' commitment came at a crucial time for the Gators, whose recruiting class suffered a blow after losing one of the nation's best linebackers in Larry Grant. Grant, a junior college transfer, failed to qualify academically after not passing a math class that is required by the Southeastem Conference. Grant, who qualifies for every Division I conference aside from the SEC, is reportedly considering Ohio State and Texas A&M. Jones will be one of many recruits to take his official visit to UF this weekend during the Gators' busiest stretch -of the recruiting season. Current UF commitments like Jones and quarterback Tim Tebow could be helpful in swaying visitors such as running backs Knowshon Moreno and Mon Williams, cornerback Patrick Robinson and offensive lineman Daron Rose. "I think the Florida Gators' coaching staff and Coach Meyer have done an excellent job of recruiting, and they have made [Jones] feel like a big part of their program," Hubbard said. "I know if they were recruiting me, I would say yes. And not just because it is the Gators." Fluff games tarnish rep or a guy who doesn't have classes on Wednesday, I found myself spending much of the afternoon trying to solve this intriguing riddle: What's a bigger joke, William Shatner selling his kidney stone for $25,000 or the No. 2 Florida Gators playing Savannah State on a Wednesday in January? Beam me up Billy D. and teleport me to an ATM for a king-sized withdrawal, because after watching Wednesday's practice in the O'Dome, my riddle was solved. J u s t Andrew days before Anrewn heading to Abramson Knoxville Drew's Control and facing aabramson@alligator.org their stiffest competition since defeating Syracuse and Wake Forest in the Coaches vs. Cancer tournament, the Gators were treated to a game against the Tigers. And we're not talking the LSU Tigers, Auburn Tigers, Memphis Tigers or the endangered Siberian tigers. We're talking the glorious Savannah State Tigers, who have averaged a grand spanking total of 0.5 wins the last two seasons. Give the Tigers credit; I wasn't sure if they'd hit double figures, let alone the half-century mark. But as the Gators fight their way to the No. 1 ranking in the nation, and their record and schedule become the talk around college basketball, facing Savannah State during SEC season (which wasn't Billy Donovan's initial intention) makes the Gators' already weak schedule look that much more pitiful. In all fairness, there's absolutely no obligation on Donovan's part to schedule tough non-conference games. In fact, if the Gators keep up their current pace and remain undefeated (unlikely as it is) or only lose a game or two (which is very possible), they will likely end up a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament. In that scenario, Donovan might as well have scheduled a November game against Santa Fe Community College.
