Meyer: Possible rematch unfair

i THE COACH SAID MICHIGAN SHOULD NOT
GET ANOTHER CHANCE TO PLAY OHIO STATE.

By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org

Michigan might get a rematch with Ohio State in
the national championship game, and UF coach Urban
Meyer can't stand the thought.
Even before the latest Bowl Championship Series
standings were released Sunday afternoon, Meyer took
exception to the possibility of seeing the Wolverines
and Buckeyes play again.
"I think that would be unfair to Ohio State, and I
think it would be unfair to the country," he said via
teleconference. "I don't believe that's the right thing
to do. You're going to tell Ohio State that
they have to beat the same team twice,
which is extremely difficult. I think
(Michigan) had their chance. Someone
Football else should have a chance to go get No.
1."
The latest standings have Ohio State as a locked
No. 1; the Buckeyes defeated the Wolverines 42-39 on
Saturday. But the slight surprise is Michigan, which
.- has retained its No. 2 BCS spot. Southern Cal, with
its Rose Bowl clinching 23-9 win against California,
stayed at No. 3.
These realities are a bitter blow to UF, which will
have to claw, squirm and pray to get to the title game.
The Gators are mired in a No. 4 rut after playing
Division I-AA Western Carolina. UF did win 62-0.
"I think you can make a case for USC, and you can
make a case for us," Meyer said. "Southern Cal got beat
by an unranked team (Oregon State), and we went into
a hostile environment (Auburn), played our hearts out,
were on the 6-yard-line and failed to get it done. I think
there's two schools out there that can say, 'We deserve
Luanne Dietz/ Alligator a shot. We've played a difficult schedule.' If those-two
Coach Urban Meyer congratulates senior Jemalle Cornelius on Se- teams take care of business, they deserve a shot."

Vet school plans upgrades with $1M gift


By CATHERINE BOOTH
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF's College of Veterinary Medicine re-
ceived a $1 million gift that will ensure the
construction of new facilities.
The donation came from the estate of
Robin Weeks and completes the $4 million
in private funds needed to build a new
small-animal hospital and research center.
Weeks, who owned a cattle ranch, had

been grateful to Dr. Mike McNulty, an alum-
nus of the college, for the veterinary care
he'd given her herds of cattle over the years,
said Sarah Carey, public relations director


for the college.
The gift couldn't have come soon
enough.
"We've outgrown our britches," said Jim
Thompson, associate dean for students and
instruction.
The college has more patients than its
facilities can accommodate, Thompson
said. There aren't enough meeting or exam

Salsa fans


fill aisles


at concert

By ALEX TIEGEN
Alligator Writer
atiegen@alligator.org

A night of vallenato, reggaeton and
salsa music awaited guests Sunday at
the Phillips Center for the Performing
Arts.
The Hispanic Heritage Month
Concert, the largest event put on by
the Hispanic Heritage Month student
group, featured the internationally
known Colombian salsa band Sonora
Carruseles. The band's name roughly
translates to "sonorous carousels."
Diana Delgado, the director of
Hispanic Heritage Month,- said
"Micaela" by Sonora Carruseles was
the first song she had
On ever salsa danced to. On
Campus Sunday night Delgado, a
Cuban American, finally
met the group that had welcomed her
into the world of salsa.
"A lot of people know their music,
but they don't know their' names,"
Delgado said.
Singers in the group sang their
own renditions of classic salsas. Tunes
from trumpets, congas, drums and
whistles blended to create a spicy,
fast-paced song.
Guests rose from their seats and
danced in the aisles. Partners twirled
and ground against each other, sing-
ing along to the songs they knew.
Organizers had to postpone the
concert until after Hispanic Heritage
Month, in part because Proyecto Uno,
the group that organizers originally
invited to play for the concert, can-
celed.
Reggaeton group Son Inocentes
and Colombian vallenato band Andy
Maya opened for Sonora Carruseles.
Son Innocentes rapped in Spanish

New PlayStation 3 owners find tough sell online


By JAMES RIGNEY
Alligator Writer
jrigney@alligator.org
Dozens of student investors camped in
front of Gainesville retailers in the hopes of
purchasing a Sony PlayStation 3 or Nintendo
Wii and selling it for higher prices online.
But resale prices online fell over the week-
end, and many of the higher-priced systems
went unsold on Web sites, including eBay
UF student Leah Nanni and her brother
Todd Nanni, also a UF student, camped out-


side of the Circuit City on Northwest Fourth
Boulevard with 11 other people for one of the
store's six units: After waiting about 55 hours
in line, they were able to buy one PS3, which
they plan to resell.
The PS3, which came in a $499 and a $599
version, was listed on eBay for about double
the original prices Friday. But those who tried
to sell for much more went without bids.
After resale averages plummeted to about
$1,500 over the weekend, Todd said he plans
to wait until Christmas to sell his system. He
said he did make some cash Sunday when he


"Many people just purchased
them to resell."
Clint Mendez
Circuit City operations manager

sold his spot in Target's line for the Nintendo
Wii for $200. He had waited in line for 12
hours, he said.
The Wii, which cost $250 in stores, was
listed between about $400 and $550 on eBay
Sunday night.


Clint Mendez, Circuit City operations man-
ager, said his store sold all of its 15 Wii units in
less than 10 minutes.
"It's the-same as the PS3," Mendez said.
"Many people just purchased them to resell."
However, some gamers who waited in
line last week said they wanted a Wii for
themselves more than for resale. Mendez said
determined gamers will have to be on the
lookout for shipments of both systems.
"Our policy is, if and when they come in,
they will be sold on a first come, first served
basis," he said.

Bhangra Club

clinic teaches

dance, stunts
By CATHERINE BOOTH
Alligator Contributing Writer
The UF Bhangra Club will hold a bhangra clinic
today at the Reitz Union's Rion Ballroom, as part of
the Asian American Student Union's Kaleidoscope
Month.
The three-hour bhangra clinic begins at 7 p.m.
and is open to the public. Members will be teaching
attendees basic dance moves and stunts. Bhangra
music will be played, and a skit about the origins of
bhangra will also be performed.
Bhangra is a lively form of folk
Multicultural dance and music that originated
.;f'.0Aj', in the 1400s in the small, remote
villages of Punjab, a region in
Northern India and Pakistan, said
Chintak Patel, vice president of the Bhangra Club. .
The type of bhangra the club performs has been
modernized, Patel said. It includes steps and stunts
from hip-hop, pop and break dancing.
"It's like break dancing without spinning on your
head," said cub member Shawn Alam.
Patel said he encourages everyone to join because
bhangra is universal, and it's not hard to learn.
"It's so rewarding to teach newcomers and watch
them grow and get better," said Juhi Desai, Bhangra
Club president. She said she teaches the steps one
way, but everyone is encouraged to add to them and
let their own personality shine through.
"The cub is really chill, and we love to welcome
new people," Desai said.

Some dance moves at concert not so 'inocente'


CONCERT, from page 1

York. Andy Maya played vallenato
songs with accordions, guitars and
congas.
Bruni Agosto, a member of the
Hispanic Student Association, said
she enjoyed Son Inocentes' perfor-
mance most. She got excited and


jumped onstage to dance with the
musicians but was escorted away by
theater employees.
"I was excited," she explained. "It's
one of my favorite genres of music,"
Reggaeton originated in New York
and in Puerto Rico, her home country.
Sabor Latino, the Hispanic Student
Association's dance team, performed
to modern and classic songs. One


dancer twirled around her partner
until she was upside down, her arms
around his legs and her legs wrapped
around his upper body. Her partner
mimed a drum patter over her but-
tocks, then flipped her right side up.
The concert cost about $40,000. It
was sponsored by Hispanic Heritage
Month and Student Government
Productions.

Gators need USC, Notre Dame to lose


FOLLOW from page 1

Meyer watched most of the
Michigan-Ohio State arid Cal-
USC games Saturday and came
to a disheartening conclusion:
Talking heads, the fans and the
media are trying to decide who
will play in Glendale, Ariz. The
coach was particularly disturbed
with ESPN's nationwide poll that
displayed how torn voters were
about having a Michigan-Ohio
State rematch.
"If they do that (rematch),
there should be a playoff system
next year," Meyer said. "And I
do think those are great teams,
because I tried to watch every
snap, but I believe as we move
on, we need a playoff series. I
think if that (rematch) happens, I
think it's over. All the presidents
would need to get together im-
mediately and put in a playoff
system like, now. I didn't think
it was possible to do with all the


stadiums and selling tickets, but I
believe there's enough firepower
out there now to get that done."
Should the Wolverines upset
the Buckeyes in a rematch, Meyer
would not consider Michigan the
champions.
"If they do that (rematch),
there should be a playoff
system next year."
Urban Meyer
UF football coach

"Absolutely (there would
be no national champion)," he
said. "If I'm Ohio State, I go get
a bunch of rings and say, 'We
won the national championship.'
That's not right."
The interesting dynamic is
that the Gators' lone national
championship -occurred because
they were granted a rematch
with FSU. In 1996, UF fell in
Tallahassee 24-21, but Arizona
State and Nebraska losses boosted


the Gators to No. 2 in the polls. UF
eventually trounced the Seminoles
52-20 in the Sugar Bowl.
"I think what happened in
1996 was a lot different because
you didn't have the BCS," Meyer
said. "You had voting at the end
and that was unique, but I don't
believe that was right either.
What happened in 1996 worked
out, but there was no BCS, and
it was just how it worked out. It
was a completely different era."
The Gators still hold an out-
side shot at advancing to the
national championship. Their
dream scenario has USC defeat-
ing Notre Dame on Saturday and
then the Trojans losing to UCLA,
UF can also bolster its argu-
ment by winning ideally dom-
inating in the Southeastern
Conference title game against a
highly ranked Arkansas team.
"The winner of that football
game should be up there," FOX
analyst Howie Long said Sunday
on TV.

rooms, and physical exams are being conducted outside on the
grass.
"Things are pretty tight right now," said David Gosche, a
student in the college.- "A lot of what was storage space has
been made into makeshift usable space, so the halls are not only
filled with people but with carts and equipment, too."
For seven years, the school has been planning to build a new
research center and a new small-animal
U F hospital. The total estimated cost is $49.4
'- million, Thompson said.
-The college's administrators hope to
secure legislative funds this spring, begin the engineering and
architectural phase in July and complete work by July 2010.
Their plan will consist of renovating the existing small-ani-
mal hospital, constructing a three-story building and joining
the two together, said Zoe Seale, senior director of develop-
ment for the college.
The new hospital will include a state-of-the-art cancer treat-
ment center that will offer treatments they can't now, like radia-
tion therapy, Seale said. The new facilities will allow the college
to better compete with other facilities in the state, she said.,

Editorial


Belt tightening

Board of Governors can't

let everyone raise tuition
One down, one to go. Last week, the Florida Board
of Governors OK'd UF President Bernie Machen's
Academic Enhancement Program, which would
charge incoming freshmen an extra $1,000 a year. Now
the plan goes to Tallahassee for final approval in the
Legislature.
The Alligator supports Machen's idea in principle. UF defi-
nitely needs more faculty its the one thing almost everyone
in Gainesville can agree on. But we don't trust the administra-
tion to spend students' money wisely.
Machen's negligence contributed to the budget crisis in the
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences a crisis Machen insists
isn't his fault or his problem. Even now, he won't commit the
majority of. proposed faculty hires to CLAS, where they're
needed most.
That being said, it seems the Academic Enhancement
Program is on its way to becoming a reality. The Board of
Governors likes it, and the plan allows the Legislature to give
Machen what he wants higher tuition without increasing
spending for Bright Futures and Florida Prepaid.
Now it's up to the Board of Governors to impose some
restraint on the rest of the State University System. If Machen
gets his extra $1,000 a head, you can bet Florida State University
and the University of Central Florida will want the same thing
- more money for new professors and academic counselors.
But they shouldn't get it.
The purpose of hiking UF's tuition and that's what this is,
however Machen tries to label it is to catapult Florida's flag-
ship university into the upper echelon of public schools. That
takes time and money, and itll never work if the rest of the State
University System says "me too" at every stage. There's only so
much to go around.
Unfortunately, the Board of Governors may have just
opened a can of worms. When FSU, let's say, comes up with
a "Scholastic Wellness Regimen," we hope Tallahassee has the
guts to say no.



Call the cleaning lady


On election night, Rep.
Nancy Pelosi the
next speaker of- the
House of Representatives
- promised voters "the most
honest, most open and most
ethical Congress in history."
Now that her party controls
both sides of Capitol Hill, it's
time to put up or shut up.
It's not enough for
Democrats to sweep
Republicans out of office and
promise to behave them-
selves. It's a good start, of
course. But Congress needs
ethics reform to curb the in-
fluence of lobbyists, govern-
ment contractors and special
interest groups who are
all happy to woo Democrats
as well as Republicans.
Corruption's an equal-oppor-
tunity employer.


The first step toward
cleaning up government is
to ban gifts, meals and free
travel from lobbyists. If you're
a member of Congress and
you want to play golf at St.
Andrews, buy a ticket to
Scotland yourself. If you can't
afford it, don't go. Nobody
said government service
came with complimentary
greens fees.
Next, Democrats should
establish an independent
ethics commission to root
out corruption in both par-
ties and yes, that means
exposing a few Democrats as
scumbags. But if Pelosi wants
to be something more than
Tom DeLay in sensible heels,
she owes it to voters to make
good on her promises. We're
watching, Nancy.

Opinions


Share a meal with i
T hanksgiving is just a few days away, and many of
us can already smell the turkey and stuffing or
Tofurky and lentils for the vegans out there and
look forward to the travel that will bring us to the place we
can only call home for a few more years.
Gainesville's homeless, however, have only travel
ahead, with no real destination. City commissioners ap-
proved a plan last week to push the homeless out of the
downtown area to well, anywhere else. That "anywhere
else" will probably be around UF's campus.
The policies in the package approved include measures
to prevent meals from being served on the Downtown
Plaza a common locale for homeless feedings the
hiring of "security service" teams and the establishment
of a "one-stop" center for homeless services.
What property will go unsold when one of its selling
points is its location "just a stone's throw away from the
city's one-stop service center"? If the City Commission
tries to centralize all 1,200 of the city's homeless men and
women around one place, it will fail and fail spectacu-
larly.
Politically, it will never happen because too many vot-
ers will oppose having the center anywhere near them.
It's socially impossible because and this may come as
a surprise to many homeless people, just like the rest
of society, don't naturally congregate into one big happy
family. Perhaps a story will illuminate this fact.
I grew up on the rough side of town in Jacksonville.
A walk around my neighborhood was unusual if it went
without sighting a homeless man, a prostitute or shoes
hanging from electrical lines as advertisements for nearby
drug dealers.
I wasn't unaffected by it, but when you see something
every day, it inevitably becomes somewhat ordinary.

someone in need
One extraordinary memory
was formed when my father and I
drove past a prostitute who looked
uncharacteristically attractive.
She is, to date, the only street
prostitute I've seen that I would
Gerald Liles describe as pretty, so I cynically
The Liles Files pointed the anomaly out to my
letters@alligator.org dad.
He then explained to me that
this wouldn't last long, because
the moment the other prostitutes saw her, they would
beat her to disfigurement.
Later on that same week I saw her again. She was
limping and still bloody from the predicted assault.
Why do I tell that story? To show that the 1,200 home-
less men and women of Gainesville are not a problem that
can be solved. They're people. Many of them made no
greater mistakes and did no heavier drugs than some UF
students yet they suffer consequences we don't dare to
imagine experiencing ourselves.
Don't rely on a city commission to help the homeless. I
suspect the "security service teams" will flush the home-
less out of downtown long before a "one-stop" center is
established, and students will start seeing them more fre-
quently on University Avenue and 13th Street.
The next time a beggar asks you for money for food,
try something radical: get him or her some food maybe
even share a meal. The conversation might be awkward,
even incoherent. However, you'll meet not a personified
problem, but a person --like you with many problems.
Why not lend a hand?
Gerald Liles is a religion junior. His column appears on
Monday.

Letters to the Editor
You catch more with honey than vinegar
Religion and hatred aside, you have to ad-
mit that Joey Johnsen's antics are ineffective at
best. The tactic of spouting out scripture to the
masses may have worked in medieval times,
but times have long since changed.
We're bombarded with advertisements
and commercials every day, screaming for us
to buy this or join that. What makes yelling on
the Plaza of the Americas any different? If one
person was screaming at you to buy a new car
and another car dealership offered you a free
oil change, who would you buy from?
Maybe if Johnsen took a hint from the
Krishnas and set up his own cheap lunch line,
he could be more effective instead of alienat-
ing people.
Jason Menzies

Alligator should aid interfaith dialogue
As a UF student and active participant in
the local Hare Krishna community, I support
the right of any religious group to exercise
its freedom of speech on campus. The same
rights that allow us to sit and play our music
apply to anyone who feels the need to contrib-
ute something to the collective airwaves.
However, the free speech provision in our
Bill of Rights does not provide the freedom


to slander and spread libelous information.
When preachers of certain religious persua-
sions call Krishna "an idol" or "a made-up
god," not only do they cross this line, they also
reveal themselves to be totally ignorant of any-
thing beyond their own fundamentalist zeal.
Even worse, the Alligator referred to Hare
Krishnas as heathens in "Preacher's move irks
new audience," Friday's front-page .article.
These statements did not appear in a campy
cartoon or short letter to the editor rather,
they appeared in a front-page article written
by an Alligator contributing writer.
Does the Alligator plan on giving the Hare
Krishnas equal print time? An article about
how we are in our 35th year of spreading love
of God at UF through food and music seems
appropriate. Or perhaps the Alligator could
arrange some sort of dialogue or mediation
between those opposed to our activities and
ourselves so we can come to some sort of ami-
cable understanding of one another, as well as
mutual respect for each other's boundaries.

Airborne ads annoy late-sleeping student
After hours of paper-writing that con-
sumed- my entire precious Friday night,
I went to bed late, only to be awakened


around 8:30 Saturday morning under the
impression that UF was being attacked by
fighter jets. But when I opened up my win-
dow, all I saw were two prop planes towing
gigantic GEICO banners behind them.
What I want to know is, who let that hap-
pen? There are things I don't mind being
jerked from sleep at 8:30 a.m. for, but seeing
a huge corporate symbol being wafted nois-
ily over my head is not one of them.
Kate Stevenson

Alligator shouldn't insult political foes
Wow, so much for intelligent journalism.
The harsh rhetoric displayed in the first half
of Friday's "Darts & Laurels" does little to
advance the cause of the Alligator. Calling the
president a "complete lunatic," among other
things, for disagreeing with your views is as
preposterous as declaring that all Democrats
are evil.
Perhaps rather than attacking those who
disagree with you, which seems to be the norm
in America right now, maybe the Alligator
should spend a little more time preparing a
convincing argument if it wants to change the
minds of others. Grow up.
Brenden Doherty

U.S. should stay in Iraq despite failures
The free press can't be blamed for a
falsely prosecuted war. While I agree with
Patrick Barrett's Thursday column on
some points such as the fact that pull-
ing out of Iraq would be a mistake or that
our government may be a bit too vulner-
able to pressure from public opinion he
has ignored the root cause of this problem.
It's fairly simple.
At no point did Saddam Hussein pose
a direct security threat to the United
States no evidence has been found that
Saddam had developed weapons of mass
destruction. Therefore, justification for
this war was completely false, whether
Democrats or Republicans believed the
evidence or not. That's why the occupa-
tion is faltering and voters are so upset
with the president.
However; it would be a moral crime
to leave Iraq now that we've become so
involved. Having invaded Iraq, now we
have an obligation to help the country
rebuild itself.
Still, it's a mistake to blame the press
for our failures. If the war had been fought
the right way as a last resort and with
proper justification public opinion
wouldn't be a factor at all.

Jennifer LaBrie / Alligator Staff


James returns first punt back for touchdown, breaks 10-year Gators record


FOOT, from page 16


Fayson 77 yards and one touchdown rush-
ing; tailback Mon Williams 95 yards rush-
ing on nine carries; and, of course, quarterback
Tim Tebow, who rushed for 47 yards, passed
for 200 and played a part in four touchdowns.
Don't forget about dynamic freshman re-
ceiver Percy Harvin, who caught three recep-
tions for 43 yards in limited duty.
"Take a look at all the young people who


played this year, and you can see Florida's
future," Meyer said "A lot of true freshmen
scored touchdowns today."
Wait, there's more. Freshman Brandon
James returned a 77-yard punt return for a
touchdown. In collecting 155 punt return
yards in the first half, James broke the UF re-
cord for punt return yards in a game. Jacquez
Green held the previous record of 145 yards
against Kentucky on Sept. 28,1996.
The 2006 class should be a special one.
"Every time a freshman made a play, we


would say, "06, '06, '06,'"
James said. "We've got
three more years to go. All
of us that came in together
the '06 guys we knew
we are capable of making
plays. We just needed the
chance to get the ball in our
James hands to showcase it. With
Jarred, Riley and Mon doing the things they
did, that's nothing new to us. We've been see-
ing it in practice everyday."


A severely undersized and mismatched
Western Carolina team could do little to stop
UF's offense. Tebow and Chris Leak routinely
had more than four seconds to find receivers.
The No. 1 recipient was Cooper. But even
Cooper dropped his first pass a catchable
29-yard touchdown. He threw up on the field
afterward:
"I was just nervous and running around,"
Cooper said. "I was just mad at myself for
dropping a well-thrown ball. I eventually got
that out of me."


WR Baker probable for FSU


NOTES, from page 16


the start of Saturday's-game in
a Senior Day ceremony that fea-
tured mild applause and a little
bit of surprise.
A late-arriving crowd of 90,223
broke into a relatively strong cheer
for starting quarterback Chris
L.;k, who appeared to be the
last senior recognized. Instead,
receiver Jemalle Cornelius was
announced afterward, leaving
fans partly confused.
Meyer has publicly touted
Cornelius as his favorite player,
while Leak has sometimes been the
subject of his coach's criticisms.

INJURY UPDATE: Senior receiver


Dallas Baker sprained his left
medial collateral ligament after
catching a 6-yard pass from
Leak on UF's first offensive play
of the game. Meyer said Baker
is probable for Saturday's FSU
game.
Also, linebackers Brandon
Siler (partial left MCL tear) and
Earl Everett (sprained left ankle)
should both play as well.

PSEUDO-SUSPENSION? Defensive
end Jarvis Moss missed
Saturday's game for an undis-

closed violation of team rules but
was dressed in full uniform on
UF's sidelines.
Moss also practiced with the
team, even after the suspension
was announced Wednesday.


OUT LOUD, from page 16

for Higgins to earn that carry. Higgins must have the same way every day
in practice as I did the day he pummeled me.
While it looked like he might never get an opportunity to see the field,
Higgins said his father, Kevin, the head coach of The Citadel, taught him
the value of never quitting.
"I've kind of had two problems in football: I've been really small and
really slow. Sometimes I believe that God just had a plan for me here,"
said Higgins, the president of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes at UF.
And there were some pretty convenient circumstances that allowed
him to get on the field this season.
If not for the fact that the NCAA added a 12th game this season and
the factdhat UF struck out on finding a quality opponent to fill that slot,
Higgins might have had to spend Senior Day on the sideline.
If Senior Day had been against South Carolina, I don't see him getting
into that game.
But Higgins, who admitted to watching "Rudy" three or four times
last week, said he doesn't deserve to play with the Gators or receive the
athletic scholarship Meyer issued him this season.
Meyer disagreed.
"He is a little guy that did everything we asked," Meyer said. "Tim,
come down here on scout team and run into these two people and get
your helmet knocked off.' And he did it. And he came back and did it
again. He is a first-class guy.
"eHeimst be Florida's version of Rudy."

UF SOCCER

UCLA eliminates Gators in controversial fashion


By RACHEL ROBINS
Alligator Writer
rrobins@alligator.org

Shocked, flabbergasted, disappointed and surprised were
all emotions felt by the No. 16 UF soccer team (14-6-5) Friday
night.
The referees' controversial calls and the sea of UF fans at-
tending the match in Los Angeles didn't matter. The Gators lost
and saw their season end right before their eyes.
UF fell to the Btuins 3-2 in a Sweet 16 match played at
UCLA's Drake Stadium. The No. 2 Bruins will play unseeded
Portland, the defending national champions, in the quarterfi-
nals.
Following UF's defeat, Coach Becky Burleigh was so infuri-
ated with the calls she couldn't formulate a game-analysis.
"This is a very difficult game for me to comment on without
commenting on the officiating," Burleigh said.
What angered Burleigh the most was a call that occurred
at the 7:27 mark, when UF's Lauren Hyde was charged for a
handball.
Consequently, UCLA's Danesha Adams took a penalty kick


that flew past UF goalkeeper Brittni Goodwin.
Though the game was tied 1-1 afterward, Burleigh said the
goal changed the game's complexion.
"That was a little bit of a swing of momentum that should
never have occurred," Burleigh said.
"This is a very difficult game for me to comment
on without commenting on the officiating."
Becky Burleigh
UF soccer coach

UF had scored first on a goal by California's own, freshman
Ashlee Elliott. Elliott's hometown of Corona, Calif., is less
'than an hour from UCLA's campus. Roughly 65 supporters in
the crowd were happy to have her home. Entering halftime,
UF was tied 1-1 with the third-ranked team in the country,
and it appeared the two were equally matched.
But UCLA freshman Lauren Cheney would slowly crush
UF's chances of capturing a second NCAA Championship.
Cheney took a shot from 18 yards that flew past
Goodwin.


If it wasn't clear enough before, Cheney proved why she
was named Pac-10 Freshman of the Year. Soon, she added a
dagger in the Gators' season.
At 65:59, she found Christina DiMartino 6 yards from the
goal. With one pass, Cheney ended UF's season. DiMartino
scored and the Gators felt their hope fade away.
Two of UF's three captains, Shelley Lyle and Stacy Bishop,
tried to rally their team at the 87:11 mark. Lyle found Bishop,
who hit an 8-yard goal. She scored while losing her footing
amid several Bruins defenders.
With the score 3-2 and their season on the line, thE Gators
tried to put something together in the final seconds. This time
the referees were on their side, but it was too late.
Ameera Abdullah was awarded a 35-yard free kick.
Elliott then tried to head it past UCLA's goalkeeper, Valerie
Henderson. It was the curse of the hand. Just as a UF hand-
ball put UCLA in position to score earlier, it was Henderson's
hand save that cost UF its season.
"I think UCLA is a good team, but we were just as good,
and it was an equally matched game," Burleigh said. "That's
the frustrating part of it. I think the game was kind of taken
away from us."


Delayed SEC celebration ensues after season-ending win


Gators swept Kentucky

Alligator Writer patch of fans near the band, among whom
jarmstrong@alligator.org were six body-painted members of the UF

ten," Wise said. "To come back like that in
that situation says a lot (about UF)."
It was an ugly offensive match in the
early going, as UF only hit .188 in game
one to UK's .140.
"They had some good
blocks, and when they
get a couple blocks,
it gets in your head,"
Hampton said. "You're
trying to hit swings that
maybe aren't there."
,But the Gators got a
spark from junior op-
Hampton posite hitter Amber
McCray, who entered the match late in
game one but managed to get 10 kills on
.348 hitting.
Wise said that McCray still wasn't
completely satisfied with her play.
"(Amber) told me right afterwards
that she was disappointed in her block-


ing. That really tells you who Amber is,"
Wise said. "There are a lot of players who
would love to hit (as she did Sunday),
but Amber will look at blocking, see she
didn't have a point and be a little disap-
pointed."
The Gators stumbled out of the gates
in game three, falling behind 15-21.
Re-energized by four blocks in six
points, UF upped its intensity, shed its
sluggishness and took the game.
"We've never felt that you win because
of emotion," Wise said. "But you can't
win without it."
Davis, whose three serving aces were
key in UF's game-one win, said the
Gators' resurgence in game three was
almost instantaneous.
"We had a little bit of trouble click-
ing out there," Davis said. "Then, I don't
know we just decided to turn it all
on."-


* LEE HUMPHREY MADE FIVE
THREE-POINTERS.

By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
jmarina@alligator.org

For point guard Taurean Green, getting
some Pepsi on the seat of his white Gators'
shorts is all in a day's work.
In UF's 93-44 victory against Tennessee-
Chattanooga, Green landed on the scorers'
table in the second half's opening minutes
after he dove for the ball. When he got up,
he tugged on his shorts and found large,
wet, tea-colored spot on his behind.
Green's effort typified the hustle and
physicality that the No. 1 UF men's basket-
ball team (4-0) displayed Saturday night.
"It was a very physical game," Green
said, "but we're tough too."
The Mocs were relentless against UF's
big men and trapped them whenever the
ball went into the low post, limiting juniors
Joakim Noah and Al Horford to 8 and 7
points, respectively.
As a result, UF's perimeter players
stepped up to sink the bulk of UF's baskets.
Nine different players chipped in to
drain 14 three-pointers. Lee Humphrey
led with five, Walter Hodge followed with
two and Green, Corey Brewer, Dan Werner,
Jonathan Mitchell, Brandon Powell, Jack


Berry and Brett Swanson each made one.
"This was a game where I think our
team showed some balance," Coach Billy
Donovan said. "They tried to take away
the inside, and our perimeter guys stepped
up."
"Coming into the game, coach
told the bigs they gotta be
strong. The bigs did a good job
of just throwing it out of the post
to the open man."
Taurean Green
UF point guard

Humphrey, who was 3-of-12 from the
three-point line before Saturday's matchup,
finally came out of his slump and hit 5-of-7,:
including the first basket of the game.
"I don't worry about Lee," Donovan
said. "I just tell him to let it go, let it fly.
Don't even think about it. Tonight was one
of those nights. He got a lot of great looks
at the basket and was able to knock down
some shots."
Both Humphrey and Green credited the
hot shooting to the decision making of the
frontcourt players.
"Coming into the game, coach told the
bigs they gotta be strong," Green said. "The
bigs did a good job of just throwing it out of
the post to the open man."

Freshmen run all over Catamounts


Casey Anderson / Alligator
Freshman wide receiver Riley Cooper caught three touchdowns in a
career day against Western Carolina. Many of UF's freshmen were
in action Saturday.


By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org

So the Gators can score after all.
They needed Division I-AA Western Carolina to do it
against, but a 62-0 shellacking of the Catamounts may be
just what No. 4 UF needed.
For starters, the Gators also No. 4 in the Bowl
Championship Series actually improved from No.
6 to No. 4 in the computers. Just as significant, the
Catamounts were a much-needed change of pace from
the torturously cose games UF (10-1, 7-1 Southeastern
Conference) had been playing.
"It was very uncomfortable in the fourth quarter (try-
ing not to blow them out)," UF coach Urban Meyer said.
"I certainly didn't want to embarrass anybody."
The way his offense had been playing, you'd never
have thought Meyer would ever say such a thing.
"It was very uncomfortable in the fourth
quarter (trying not to blow them out). I
certainly didn't want to embarrass any-
body."
Urban Meyer
UF football coach

But Saturday's performance might have been a
glimpse into the future, when UF could field the prolific
spread attack Meyer has been salivating for.
Using many of the freshmen who will be the comrr-
stones of the 2007 offense, the Gators amassed 585 yards
of total offense (285 rushing and 300 passing).
"I think you see West Virginia do some things that
Florida is going to do.... I'm not sure how you stop that,"
- Meyer said.

stuffers: receiver Riley Cooper three touchdown re-
ceptions, 82 yards receiving; receiver/quarterback Jarred

Undersized Higgins a walk-on to remember


T'll never forget that feeling of gasping
Ifor air on the grass of Hume Field two
.years ago.
I was wide open, but the pass came in
high. As I leapt in the air, the football barely
touched my fingertips before I was hit in
the chest by what felt like an oncoming
schoolbus.
Still unable to breathe, I rolled around
on the ground before someone helped me
onto my feet.
"He didn't mean it," one of the guys
said. "It's instinct. He's on the football
team.
"Let's use a little common sense around
here," he said, staring at a man who made
my 5-foot-9-inch frame look impressive.
The guy who hit me was 5-foot-7, 172-
pound spelling bee champion Tim Higgins
- more like a golf cart than a school bus,
which I guess would make me a Power
Whee,*Kar.


OK, so a for-
mer finalist in the
Scripps -National
Spelling Bee laid
me out in a pickup
game. It's a little
Bryan Jones embarrassing, but
Bryan Out Loud I can admit it.
bjones@alligator.org After that
day, my shame
was eased a bit.
Higgins proved to the Gator Nation that
he was not only a football player but also a
star in his own right.
The senior wide receiver, who has been
a staple of the scout team for the past four
years, came into Saturday's game in the
fourth quarter to a massive ovation. Fans
held up signs that read, "We want Higgins"
on one side and "We love Higgins" on the
other.
Pamphlets about Higgins swirled


throughout the stadium, and somehow a
letter wound up on Urban Meyer's desk
that urged him to put Higgins in the game.
"Those people were screaming, 'Give
me Higgins, give me Higgins," Meyer
said. "I gave them Higgins."
Higgins played on kickoff coverage and
he lined up as a wide receiver, but he only
touched the ball once a handoff from
quarterback Tim Tebow that went for no
gain..Still, it was the greatest no gain he
could have ever asked for.
"Getting to run out on that field and
getting the ball in your hands, it's been my
dream since high school," said Higgins, an
aspiring history teacher and football coach.
"Man, I can't say enough about what that
was like."
Despite the tremendous opportunity, it
was a long road of hard work and sacrifice

Meyer: Bo


greatest


coach ever

By DAN TREAT and LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writers

Saturday's showdown between
Michigan and Ohio State took on a more
somber tone after legendary Wolverines
coach Bo Schembechler, 77, died Friday
morning.
Both Coach Urban Meyer and corner-
backs coach Chuck Heater have ties to
Schembechler.
Meyer said that all of his coach-
ing philosophies have come from the
tree of influences that includes former
Ohio State coach Woody Hayes and
Schembechler, who was once Hayes' as-
sistant in Columbus.
"I think he's the
greatest football coach
of all time," Meyer
said. "He was one of
the first coaches that
really got into his kids'
_lives."
Schembechler Meyer added that
he and Schembechler had a long talk af-
ter Meyer got his first head-coaching job
at Bowling Green.
Heater was even more intimately con-
nected to Schembechler, having played
at Michigan from 1971-74 and finished
his career as the Wolverines fifth all-time
leading rusher.
Michigan went 41-3-1 and won or
shared the Big Ten title each of those four
seasons.
"He loved being around the guys. He
loved being in the locker room," Heater
said. "He was like a gym rat. He liked
being around his guys and liked being
around his coaches. It was his life."
Heater also recalled the famous 10-10
tie between Michigan and Ohio State in
1973 and said that the game could still
stir the old coach's emotions.
"You might get him out of where he
is right now if you bring that one up,"
Heater said.

Meyer: Possible rematch unfair Luanne Dietz/ Alligator Coach Urban Meyer congratulates senior Jemalle Cornelius on Senior Day. UF's seniors might not get a chance at a national title. UF ACADEMICS THE COACH SAID MICHIGAN SHOULD NOT GET ANOTHER CHANCE TO PLAY OHIO STATE. By LOUIS ANASTASIS Alligator Staff Writer -anast-sisealligator.org Michigan might get a rematch with Ohio State in the national championship game, and UF coach Urban Meyer can't stand the thought. Even before the latest Bowl Championship Series standings were released Sunday afternoon, Meyer took exception to the possibility of seeing the Wolverines and Buckeyes play again. "I think that would be unfair to Ohio State, and I think it would be unfair to the country," he said via teleconference. "I don't believe that's the right thing to do. You're going to tell Ohio State that -they have to beat the same team twice, which is extremely difficult. I think (Michigan) had their chance. Someone Football else should have a chance to go get No. 1." The latest standings have Ohio State as a locked No. 1; the Buckeyes defeated the Wolverines 42-39 on Saturday. But the slight surprise is Michigan, which has retained its No. 2 BCS spot. Southern Cal, with its Rose Bowl clinching 23-9 win against California, stayed at No. 3. These realities are a bitter blow to UF, which will have to claw, squirm and pray to get to the title game. The Gators are mired in a No. 4 rut after playing Division I-AA Western Carolina. UF did win 62-0. "I think you can make a case for USC, and you can make a case for us," Meyer said. "Southern Cal got beat by an unranked team (Oregon State), and we went into a hostile environment (Auburn), played our hearts out, were on the 6-yard-line and failed to get it done. I think there's two schools out there that can say, 'We deserve a shot. We've played a difficult schedule.' If those two teams take care of business, they deserve a shot."

Weeks, who owned a cattle ranch, had "We've outgrown our britches."

The Hispanic Heritage Month Concert, the largest event put on -by the Hispanic Heritage Month student group, featured the internationally known Colombian salsa band Sonora Carruseles. The band's name roughly translates to "sonorous carousels." Diana Delgado, the director of Hispanic Heritage Month, -said "Micaela" by Sonora Carruseles was the first song she had On ever salsa danced to. On Campus Sunday night Delgado, a Cuban American, finally met the group that had welcomed her into the world of salsa. "A lot of people know their music, but they don't know their' names," Delgado said. Singers in the group sang their own renditions of classic salsas. Tunes from trumpets, congas, drums and whistles blended to create a spicy, fast-paced song. Guests rose from their seats and danced in the aisles. Partners twirled and ground against each other, singing along to the songs they knew. Organizers had to postpone the concert until after Hispanic Heritage Month, in part because Proylecto Uno, the group that organizers originally invited to play for the concert, canceled.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2006 U ALLIGATOR, 3 TECwni Pla3GY I New PlayStation 3owners f ind tough selI on Ii ne By JAMES RIGNEY Alligator Writer jrigney@alligator.org Dozens of student investors camped in front of Gainesville retailers in the hopes of purchasing a Sony PlayStation 3 or Nintendo WII and selling it for higher prices online. But resale prices online fell over the weekend, and many of the higher-priced systems went unsold on Web sites, including eBay. UF student Leah Nanni and her brother Todd Nanni, also a UF student, camped outside of the Circuit City on Northwest Fourth Boulevard with 11 other people for one of the store's six units: After waiting about 55 hours in line, they were able to buy one PS3, which they plan to resell. The PS3, which came in a $499 and a $599 version, was listed on eBay for about double the original prices Friday. But those who tried to sell for much more went without bids. After resale averages plummeted to about $1,500 over the weekend, Todd said he plans to wait until Christmas to sell his system. He said he did make some cash Sunday when he "Many people just purchased them to resell." Clint Mendez Circuit City operations manager sold his spot in Target's line for the Nintendo Wii for $200. He had waited in line for 12 hours, he said. The Wil, which cost $250 in stores, was listed between about $400 and $550 on eBay Sunday night. Clint Mendez, Circuit City operations manager, said his store sold all of its 15 Wii units in less than 10 minutes. "It's the -same 3s the PS3," Mendez said. "Many people just purchased them to resell." However, some gamers who waited in line last week said they wanted a Wi for themselves more than for resale. Mendez said determined gamers will have to be on the lookout for shipments of both systems. "Our policy is, if and when they come in, they will be sold on a first come, first served basis," he said.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2006 U ALLIGATOR, 5 Gators need USC, Notre Dame to lose FOLLOW, from page 1 Meyer watched most of the Michigan-Ohio State aid CalUSC games Saturday and came to a disheartening conclusion: Talking heads, the fans and the media are trying to decide who will play in Glendale, Ariz. The coach was particularly disturbed with ESPN's nationwide poll that displayed how torn voters were about having a Michigan-Ohio State rematch. "If they do that (rematch), there should be a playoff system next year," Meyer said. "And I do think those are great teams, because I tried to watch every snap, but I believe as we move on, we need a playoff series. I think if that (rematch) happens, I think it's over. All the presidents would need to get together immediately and put in a playoff system -like, now. I didn't think it was possible to do with all the stadiums and selling tickets, but I believe there's enough firepower out there now to get that done." Should the Wolverines upset the Buckeyes in a rematch, Meyer would not consider Michigan the champions. "if they do that (rematch), there should be a playoff system next year." Urban Meyer SUF football coach "Absolutely (there would be no national champion)," he said. "If I'm Ohio State, I go get a bunch of rings and say, 'We won the national championship.' That's not right." The interesting dynamic is that the Gators' lone national championship -occurred because they were granted a rematch with FSU. In 1996, UF fell in Tallahassee 24-21, but Arizona State and Nebraska losses boosted the Gators to No. 2 in the polls. UF eventually trounced the Seminoles 52-20 in the Sugar Bowl. "I think what happened in 1996 was a lot different because you didn't have the BCS," Meyer said. "You had voting at the end and that was unique, but I don't believe that was right either. What happened in 1996 worked out, but there was no BCS, and it was just how it worked out. It was a completely different era." The Gators still hold an outside shot at advancing to the national championship. Their dream scenario has USC defeating Notre Dame on Saturday and then the Trojans losing to UCLA, UF can also bolster its argument by winning -ideally dominating -in the Southeastern Conference title game against a highly ranked Arkansas team. "The winner of that football game should be up there," FOX analyst Howie Long said Sunday on TV.

For seven years, the school has beenplanning to build a new research center and a new small-animal UF hospital. The total estimated cost is $49.4 A_________ million, Thompson said. -The college's administrators hope to secure legislative funds this spring, begin the engineering and architectural phase in July and complete work by July 2010. Their plan will consist of renovating the existing small-animal hospital, constructing a three-story building and joining the two together, said Zoe Seale, senior director of development for the college.

6, ALLIGATOR E MONDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2006 Editorial Belt tightening Board of Governors can't let everyone raise tuition ne down, one to go. Last week, the Florida Board of Governors OK'd UF President Bernie Machen's Academic Enhancement Program, which would charge incoming freshmen an extra $1,000 a year. Now the plan goes to Tallahassee for final approval in the Legislature. The Alligator supports Machen's idea in principle. UF definitely needs more faculty -it's the one thing almost everyone in Gainesville can agree on. But we don't trust the administration to spend students' money wisely. Machen's negligence contributed to the budget crisis in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences -a crisis Machen insists isn't his fault or his problem. Even now, he won't commit the majority of. proposed faculty hires to CLAS, where they're needed most. That being said, it seems the Academic Enhancement Program is on its way to becoming a reality. The Board of Governors likes it, and the plan allows the Legislature to give Machen what he wants -higher tuition -without increasing spending for Bright Futures and Florida Prepaid. Now it's up to the Board of Governors to impose some restraint on the rest of the State University System. If Machen gets his extra $1,000 a head, you can bet Florida State University and the University of Central Florida will want the same thing -more money for new professors and academic counselors. But they shouldn't get it. The purpose of hiking UF's tuition -and that's what this is, however Machen tries to label it -is to catapult Florida's flagship university into the upper echelon of public schools. That takes time and money, and it'll never work if the rest of the State University System says "me too" at every stage. There's only so much to go around. Unfortunately, the Board of Governors may have just opened a can of worms. When FSU, let's say, comes up with a "Scholastic Wellness Regimen," we hope Tallahassee has the guts tosayno. Call the cleaning lady On election night, Rep. Nancy Pelosi -the next speaker of the House of Representatives -promised voters "the most honest, most open and most ethical Congress in history." Now that her party controls both sides of Capitol Hill, it's time to put up or shut up. It's not enough for Democrats to sweep Republicans out of office and promise to behave themselves. It's a good start, of course. But Congress needs ethics reform to curb the influence of lobbyists, government contractors and special interest groups -who are all happy to woo Democrats as well as Republicans. Corruption's an equal-opportunity employer. The first step toward cleaning up government is to ban gifts, meals and free travel from lobbyists. If you're a member of Congress and you want to play golf at St. Andrews, buy a ticket to Scotland yourself. If you can't afford it, don't go. Nobody said government service came with complimentary greens fees. Next, Democrats should establish an independent ethics commission to root out corruption in both parties -and yes, that means exposing a few Democrats as scumbags. But if Pelosi wants to be something more than Tom DeLay in sensible heels, she owes it to voters to make good on her promises.

Op ions ALLIGATOR www.aIligator.org/opinions -oA~w AvowCSA d iAl Column Share a meal with someone in need hanksgiving is just a few days away, and many of us can already smell the turkey and stuffing -or Tofurky and lentils for the vegans out there -and look forward to the travel that will bring us to the place we can only call home for a few more years. Gainesville's homeless, however, have only travel ahead, with no real destination. City commissioners approved a plan last week to push the homeless out of the downtown area to -well, anywhere else. That "anywhere else" will probably be around UF's campus. The policies in the package approved include measures to prevent meals from being served on the Downtown Plaza -a common locale for homeless feedings -the hiring of "security service" teams and the establishment of a "one-stop" center for homeless services. What property will go unsold when one of its selling points is its location "just a stone's throw away from the city's one-stop service center"? If the City Commission tries to centralize all 1,200 of the city's homeless men and women around one place, it will fail and fail spectacularly. Politically, it will never happen because too many voters will oppose having the center anywhere near them. It's socially impossible because -and this may come as a surprise to many -homeless people, just like the rest of society, don't naturally congregate into one big happy family. Perhaps a story will illuminate this fact. I grew up on the rough side of town in Jacksonville. A walk around my neighborhood was unusual if it went without sighting a homeless man, a prostitute or shoes hanging from electrical lines as advertisements for nearby drug dealers. I wasn't unaffected by it, but when you see something every day, it inevitably becomes somewhat ordinary. One extraordinary memory was formed when my father and I drove past a prostitute who looked uncharacteristically attractive. She is, to date, the only street prostitute I've seen that I would Gerald Liles describe as pretty, so I cynically The Liles Files pointed the anomaly out to my Ietters@alligator.org dad. He then explained to me that this wouldn't last long, because the moment the other prostitutes saw her, they would beat her to disfigurement. Later on that same week I saw her again. She was limping and still bloody from the predicted assault. Why do I tell that story? To show that the 1,200 homeless men and women of Gainesville are not a problem that can be solved. They're people. Many of them made no greater mistakes and did no heavier drugs than some UF students -yet they suffer consequences we don't dare to imagine experiencing ourselves. Don't rely on a city commission to help the homeless. I suspect the "security service teams" will flush the homeless out of downtown long before a "one-stop" center is established, and students will start seeing them more frequently on University Avenue and 13th Street. The next time a beggar asks you for money for food, try something radical: get him or her some food -maybe even share a meal. The conversation might be awkward, even incoherent. However, you'll meet not a personified problem, but a person -like you -with many problems. Why not lend a hand? Gerald Liles is a religion junior. His column appears on Mondays.

If one These statements did not appear in a campy buy a new car cartoon or short letter to the editor -rather, red you a free they appeared in a front-page article written from? by an Alligator contributing writer. hint from the Does the Alligator plan on giving the Hare eap lunch line, Krishnas equal print time? An article about ead of alienathow we are in our 35th year of spreading love of God at UF through food and music seems Jason Menzies appropriate. Or perhaps the Alligator could 5EG arrange some sort of dialogue or mediation between those opposed to our activities and ourselves so we can come to some sort of amicable understanding of one another, as well as th dialogue mutual respect for each other's boundaries. As a UF student and active participant in the local Hare Krishna community, I support the right of any religious group to exercise its freedom of speech on campus. The same rights that allow us to sit and play our music apply to anyone who feels the need to contribute something to the collective airwaves. However, the free speech provision in our Bill of Rights does not provide the freedom Jonathan Banks 4LS U E E Airborne ads annoy late-sleeping student After hours of paper-writing that consumedmy entire precious Friday night, I went to bed late, only to be awakened around 8:30 Saturday morning under the impression that UT was being attacked by fighter jets. But when I opened up my window, all I saw were two prop planes towing gigantic GEICO banners behind them. What I want to know is, who let that happen? There are things I don't mind being jerked from sleep at 8:30 a.m. for, but seeing a huge corporate symbol being wafted noisily over my head is not one of them. Kate Stevenson 1LS U.U Alligator shouldn't insult political foes Wow, so much for intelligent journalism' The harsh rhetoric displayed in the first half of Friday's "Darts & Laurels" does little to advance the cause of the Alligator. Calling the president a "complete lunatic," among other things, for disagreeing with your views is as preposterous as declaring that all Democrats are evil. Perhaps rather than attacking those who disagree with you, which seems to be the norm in America right now, maybe the Alligator should spend a little more time preparing a convincing argumentif it wants to change the minds of others. Grow up. Brenden Doherty 4LS U.S. should stay in Iraq despite failures The free press can't be blamed for a falsely prosecuted war. While I agree with Patrick Barrett's Thursday column on some points -such as the fact that pulling out of Iraq would be a mistake or that our government may be a bit too vulnerable to pressure from public opinion -he has ignored the root cause of this problem. It's fairly simple. At no point did Saddam Hussein pose a direct security threat to the United States -no evidence has been found that Saddam had developed weapons of mass destruction. Therefore, justification for this war was completely false, whether Democrats or Republicans believed the evidence or not. That's why the occupation is faltering and voters are so upset with the president. However; it would be a moral crime to leave Iraq now that we've become so involved. Having invaded Iraq, now we have an obligation to help the country rebuild itself. Still, it's a mistake to blame the press for our failures. If the war had been fought the right way -as a last resort and with proper justification -public opinion wouldn't be a factor-at all.

14, ALLIGATOR E MONDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2006 Siley ffadon Tim coope anS Tebo B, fr. aB, fr. Talk about efficiency. Cooper caught only three passes When you. break Jacquez Green's 10-year record Yes, it was Western Carolina, but how could last Saturday, and all three went for touchdowns. for punt return yards in a game, you are going to Tebow have played any better Saturday? He SIwamp Studs Staqdiq~ Cooper still needs sometime to mature as a receiver, find yourself as a Swamp Studs selection. James completed 10 of his 12 passes and averaged but he might be the most difficult matchup of any of also finally got the monkey off his back, returning 7.8 yards per carry. After the game, Meyer said 1. Baker -20 5. Moss -7 6. Nelson -6 12. James -3 UF's receivers. Despite being one of the Gators' biggest a punt for a touchdown that wasn't called back Tebow is now fully able to completely run the 2. Smith -9 6. Tebow -6 6. Wynn -6 12. Everett -1 receivers at 6-foot-3, Cooper boasts a 40-time of 4.35. If due to penalty. Sure, it was against lowly Western Gators' offense. a guy like Cooper is currently UF's No. 3 receiver among Carolina, but considering the bad luck James has 3. HAvin-8 6. Leak -6 11. Cooper -5 12. Joiner -1 the freshman clam alone, the future could be bright for received so far this season, he deserves ft. 3 Hufsin Urban Meyer's offense.rcie ofrti esn edsre t 3. Harvey-8 6. Thomas -6 11. Caldwell -5 12. Sier1 I V M I Jennifer LaBrie / Alligator Staff James returns first punt back for touchdown, breaks 10-year Gators record FOOT, from page 16 Fayson -77 yards and one touchdown rushing; tailback Mon Williams -95 yards rushing on nine carries; and, of course, quarterback Tun Tebow, who rushed for 47 yards, passed for 200 and played a part in four touchdowns. Don't forget about dynamic freshman receiver Percy Harvin, who caught three receptions for 43 yards in limited duty. "Take a look at all the young people who played this year, and you can see Florida's future," Meyer said "A lot of true freshmen scored touchdowns today." Wait, there's more. Freshman Brandon James returned a 77-yard punt return for a touchdown. In collecting 155 punt return yards in the first half, James broke the UF record for punt return yards in a game. Jacquez Green held the previous record of 145 yards against Kentucky on Sept. 28,1996. The 2006 class should be a special one. "Every time a freshman made a play, we would say, "06, '06, '06,"' James said. "We've got three more years to go. All of us that came in together -the '06 guys -we knew we are capable of making plays. We just needed the chance to get the ball in our iamss hands to showcase it. With Jarred, Riley and Mon doing the things they did, that's nothing new to us. We've been seeing it in practice everyday." A severely undersized and mismatched Western Carolina team could do little to stop UF's offense. Tebow and Chris Leak routinely had more than four seconds to find receivers. The No. 1 recipient was Cooper. But even Cooper dropped his first pass -a catchable 29-yard touchdown. He threw up on the field afterward. "I was just nervous and running around," Cooper said. "I was just mad at myself for dropping a well-thrown ball. I eventually got that out of me." WR Baker probable for FSU NOTES, from page 16 the start of Saturday's game in a Senior Day ceremony that featured mild applause and a little bit of surprise. A late-arriving crowd of 90,223 broke into a relatively strong cheer for starting quarterback Chris Lk, who appeared to be the last senior recognized. Instead, receiver Jemalle Cornelius was announced afterward, leaving fans partly confused. Meyer has publicly touted Cornelius as his favorite player, while Leak has sometimes been the subject of his coach's criticisms. INJURY UPDATE: Senior receiver Dallas Baker sprained his left medial collateral ligament after catching a 6-yard pass from Leak on UF's first offensive play of the game. Meyer said Baker is probable for Saturday's FSU game. Also, linebackers Brandon Siler (partial left MCL tear) and Earl Everett (sprained left ankle) should both play as well. PSEUDO-SUSPENSION? Defensive end Jarvis Moss missed Saturday's game for an undisclosed violation of team rules but was dressed in full uniform on UTF's sidelines. Moss also practiced with the team, even after the suspension was announced Wednesday. OUT LOUD, from page 16 for Higgins to earn that carry. Higgins must have the same way every day in practice as I did the day he pummeled me. While it looked like he might never get an opportunity to see the field, Higgins said his father, Kevin, the head coach of The Citadel, taught him the value of never quitting. "I've kind of had two problems in football: I've been really small and really slow. Sometimes I believe that God just had a plan for me here," said Higgins, the president of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes at UFAnd there were some pretty convenient circumstances that allowed him to get on the field this season. If not for the fact that the NCAA added a 12th game this season and the fact hat UF struck out on finding a quality opponent to fill that slot, Higgins might have had to spend Senior Day on the sideline. If Senior Day had been against South Carolina, I don't see him getting into that game. But Higgins, who admitted to watching "Rudy" three or four times last week, said he doesn't deserve to play with the Gators or receive the athletic scholarship Meyer issued him this season. Meyer disagreed. "He is a little guy that did everything we asked," Meyer said. "'Tim, come dgwn here on scout team and run into these two people and get your helmet knocked off.' And he did it. And he came back and did it again. He is a first-class guy. "He must be Florida's version of Rudy." W.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2006 E ALLIGATOR, 15 UFSOCCER UCLA eliminates Gators in controversial fashion By RACHEL ROBINS Alligator Writer rrobins@alligator.org Shocked, flabbergasted, disappointed and surprised were all emotions felt by the No. 16 UF soccer team (14-6-5) Friday night. The referees' controversial calls and the sea of UF fans attending the match in Los Angeles didn't matter. The Gators lost and saw their season end right before their eyes. UF fell to the Bruins 3-2 in a Sweet 16 match played at UCLA's Drake Stadium. The No. 2 Bruins will play unseeded Portland, the defending national champions, in the quarterfinals. Following UF's defeat, Coach Becky Burleigh was so infuriated with the calls she couldn't formulate a game-analysis. "This is a very difficult game for me to comment on without commenting on the officiating," Burleigh said. What angered Burleigh the most was a call that occurred at the 7:27 mark, when UF's Lauren Hyde was charged for a handball. Consequently, UCLA's Danesha Adams took a penalty kick that flew past UF goalkeeper Brittni Goodwin. Though the game was tied 1-1 afterward, Burleigh said the goal changed the game's complexion. "That was a little bit of a swing of momentum that should never have occurred," Burleigh said. "This is a very difficult game for me to comment on without commenting on the officiating." Becky Burleigh UF soccer coach UF had scored first on a goal by California's own, freshman Ashlee Elliott. Elliott's hometown of Corona, Calif., is less than an hour from UCLA's campus. Roughly 65 supporters in the crowd were happy to have her home. Entering halftime, UF was tied 1-1 with the third-ranked team in the country, and it appeared the two were equally matched. But UCLA freshman Lauren Cheney would slowly crush UF's chances of capturing a second NCAA Championship. Cheney took a shot from 18 yards that flew past Goodwin. If it wasn't clear enough before, Cheney proved why she was named Pac-10 Freshman of the Year. Soon, she added a dagger in the Gators' season. At 65:59, she found Christina DiMartino 6 yards from the goal. With one pass, Cheney ended UF's season. DiMartino scored and the Gators felt their hope fade away. Two of UF's three captains, Shelley Lyle and Stacy Bishop, tried to rally their team at the 87:11 mark. Lyle found Bishop, who hit an 8-yard goal. She scored while losing her footing amid several Bruins defenders. With the score 3-2 and their season on the line, th. Gators tried to put something together in the final seconds. This time the referees were on their side, but it was too late. Ameera Abdullah was awarded a 35-yard free kick. Elliott then tried to head it past UCLA's goalkeeper, Valerie Henderson. It was the curse of the hand. Just as a UF handball put UCLA in position to score earlier, it was Henderson's hand save that cost UF its season. "I think UCLA is a good team, but we were just as good, and it was an equally matched game," Burleigh said. "That's the frustrating part of it. I think the game was kind of taken away from us." Delayed SEC celebration ensues after season-ending win Gators swept Kentucky By JOSH ARMSTRONG Most of the Gators ran toward a small Alligator Writer patch of fans near the band, among whom jarmstrong@aligator.org were six body-painted members of the UF soccer team.

"To come back like that in that situation says a lot (about UF)." It was an ugly offensive match in the early going, as UF only hit .188 in game one to UK's .140. "They had some good blocks, and when they get a couple blocks, it gets in your head," Hampton said. "You're trying to hit swings that maybe aren't there." But the Gators got a spark from junior opHampton posite hitter Amber McCray, who entered the match late in game one but managed to get 10 kills on .348 hitting. Wise said that McCray still wasn't completely satisfied with her play. "(Amber) told me right afterwards that she was disappointed in her blocking. That really tells you who Amber is," Wise said. "There are a lot of players who would love to hit (as she did Sunday), but Amber will look at blocking, see she didn't have a point and be a little disappointed." The Gators stumbled out of the gates in game three, falling behind 15-21. Re-energized by four blocks in six points, UF upped its intensity, shed its sluggishness and took the game. "We've never felt that you win because of emotion," Wise said. "But you can't win without it." Davis, whose three serving aces were key in UF's game-one win, said the Gators' resurgence in game three was almost instantaneous. "We had a little bit of trouble clicking out there," Davis said. "Then, I don't know -we just decided to turn it all on." LEE HUMPHREY MADE FIVE THREE-POINTERS. By JENNA MARINA Alligator Staff Writer jmarina@aligator.org For point guard Taurean Green, getting some Pepsi on the seat of his white Gators' shorts is all ina day's work. In UT's 93-44 victor against TennesseeChattanooga, Green landed on the scorers' table in the second half's opening minutes after he dove for the ball. When he got up, he tugged on his shorts and found large, wet, tea-colored spot on his behind. Green's effort typified the hustle and physicality that the No. 1 UF men's basketball team (4-0) displayed Saturday night. "It was a very physical game," Green said, "but we're tough too." The Mocs were relentless against UF's big men and trapped them whenever the ball went into the low post, limiting juniors Joakim Noah and Al Horford to 8 and 7 points, respectively. As a result, UF's perimeter players stepped up to sink the bulk of UF's baskets. Nine different players chipped in to drain 14 three-pointers. Lee Humphrey led with five, Walter Hodge followed with two and Green, Corey Brewer, Dan Werner, Jonathan Mitchell, Brandon Powell, Jack Berry and Brett Swanson each made one. "This was a game where I think our team showed some balance," Coach Billy Donovan said. "They tried to take away the inside, and our perimeter guys stepped up." "Coming into the game, coach told the bigs they gotta be strong. The bigs did a good job of just throwing it out of the post to the open man." Taurean Green UF point guard Humphrey, who was 3-of-12 from the three-point line before Saturday's matchup, finally came out of his slump and hit 5-of-7,including the first basket of the game. "I don't worry about Lee," Donovan said. "I just tell him to let it go, let it fly. Don't even think about it. Tonight was one of those nights. He got a lot of great looks at the basket and was able to knock down some shots." Both Humphrey and Green credited the hot shooting to the decision making of the frontcourt players. "Coming into the game, coach told the bigs they gotta be strong," Green said. "The bigs did a good job of just throwing it out of the post to the open man."

Many of UF's freshmen were in action Saturday. By LOUIS ANASTASIS Alligator Staff Writer lanastasis@alligator.org So the Gators can score after all. They needed Division I-AA Western Carolina to do it against, but a 62-0 shellacking of the Catamounts may be just what No. 4 UF needed. For starters, the Gators -also No. 4 in the Bowl Championship Series -actually improved from No. 6 to No. 4 in the computers. Just as significant, the Catamounts were a much-needed change of pace from the torturously close games UF (10-1, 7-1 Southeastern Conference) had been playing. "It was very uncomfortable in the fourth quarter (trying not to blow them out)," UF coach Urban Meyer said. "I certainly didn't want to embarrass anybody." The way his offense had been playing, you'd never have thought Meyer would ever say such a thing. "It was very uncomfortable in the fourth quarter (trying not to blow them out). I certainly didn't want to embarrass anybody." Urban Meyer UF football coach But Saturday's performance might have been a glimpse into the future, when UF could field the prolific spread attack Meyer has been salivating for. Using many of the freshmen who will be the cornerstones of the 2007 offense, the Gators amassed 585 yards of total offense (285 rushing and 300 passing). "I think you see West Virginia do some things that Florida is going to do. .I'mnot sure how you stop that," Meyer said.

I was wide open, but the pass came in high. As I leapt in the air, the football barely touched my fingertips before I was hit in the chest by what felt like an oncoming school bus. Still unable to breathe, I rolled around on the ground before someone helped me onto my feet. "He didn't mean it," one of the guys said. "It's instinct. He's on the football team. "Let's use a little common sense around here," he said, staring at a man who made my 5-foot-9-inch frame look impressive.

It's a little Bryan Jones embarrassing, but Bryan Out Loud I can admit it. btones@alligator.org After that day, my shame was eased a bit. Higgins proved to the Gator Nation that he was not only a football player but also a star in his own right. The senior wide receiver, who has been a staple of the scout team for the past four years, came into Saturday's game in the fourth quarter to.a massive ovation. Fans held up signs that read, "We want Higgins" on one side and "We love Higgins" on the other. Pamphlets about Higgins swirled throughout the stadium, and somehow a letter wound up on Urban Meyer's desk that urged him to put Higgins in the game. "Those people were screaming, 'Give me Higgins, give me Higgins,"' Meyer said. "I gave them Higgins." Higgins played on kickoff coverage and he lined up as a wide receiver, but he only touched the ball once -a handoff from quarterback Tim Tebow that went for no gain.Still, it was the greatest no gain he could have ever asked for. "Getting to run out on that field and getting the ball in your hands, it's been my dream since high school," said Higgins, an aspiring history teacher and football coach. "Man, I can't say enough about what that was like."

Check out our Web site for the story. Meyer: Bo greatest coach, ever By DAN TREAT and LOUIS ANASTASIS Alligator Staff Writers Saturday's showdown between Michigan and Ohio Stpte took on a more somber tone after legendary Wolverines coach Bo Schembechler, 77, died Friday morning. Both Coach Urban Meyer and cornerbacks coach Chuck Heater have ties to Schembechler. Meyer said that all of his coaching philosophies have come from the tree of influences that includes former Ohio State coach Woody Hayes and Schembechler, who was once Hayes' assistant in Columbus. "I think he's the greatest football coach of all time," Meyer said. "He was one of the first coaches that really got into his kids' lives." Schembechler Meyer added that he and Schembechler had a long talk after Meyer got his first head-coaching job at Bowling Green. Heater was even more intimately connected to Schembechier having played at Michigan from 1971-74 and finished his career as the Wolverines fifth all-time leading rusher. Michigan went 41-3-1 and won or shared the Big Ten title each of those four seasons. "He loved being around the guys. He loved being in the locker room," Heater said. "He was like a gym rat. He liked being around his guys and liked being around his coaches. It was his life." Heater also recalled the famous 10-10 tie between Michigan and Ohio State in 1973 and said that the game could still stir the old coach's emotions. "You might get him out of where he is right now if you bring that one up," Heater said.
