UF on outside looking in for BCS title game


By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org

Sorry, Gators. You'll probably
have to settle for a BCS bowl at
best.


And a loss to Arkansas
in Saturday's Southeastern
Conference game will likely send
you to the Capital One Bowl.
Resignation might be the
prevailing theme in Gainesville


after the release of the latest Bowl
Championship Series standings on
Sunday..
The Gators (11-1,7-1 SEC) are in
the same No. 4 slot they have been
mired in for four weeks. And bar-


Him uasey/ Alligator start
Coach Urban Meyer and the Gators will probably get shut out of the national championship game unless
they can defeat Arkansas and UCLA can upset Southern Cal on Saturday.


ring a deluge of luck, they will be
no higher than No. 3 if they defeat
Arkansas.
Even UF coach Urban Meyer,
who one week ago lobbied loud
and hard against voters and a
possible rematch of Michigan and
Ohio State, has quieted down.
"I think the BCS has done
the best they possibly could in a
very difficult situation," Meyer
said on a Sunday teleconference.
"Obviously, for anyone that thinks
logically, it's not the best system.
But it's the best system at this
time."
Southern Cal is the team boxing
the Gators out of Glendalb, Ariz.
The No. 2 Trojans leapfrogged
Michigan after dominating Notre
Dame 44-24. Michigan fell to No.
3. The BCS, Harris Poll, Coaches'
Poll and computers all have identi-
cal one-through-five rankings.
UF's final hope lies with the
other Los Angeles team. UCLA
- 6-to-1 underdogs must upset
USC on Saturday. Then the Gators
must pray that a win against the
Razorbacks catapults them past
Michigan.
UF is just .04 points behind the
Wolverines in the computers.
But none of this matters if the
Gators lose to now-No. 9 Arkansas
and USC defeats UCLA.
If that happens, UF will most
likely play in the Capital One


Bowl. But the Orange Bowl still
prefers the Gators if they can get
them.
Everything hinges on the Rose
Bowl. This bowl must choose be-
tween Notre Dame and No. 5 LSU
to play Michigan.
The Tigers are the logical
pick after their 31-26 win against
Arkansas. But Rose Bowl represen-
tatives still want Notre Dame. The
problem is that the Fighting Irish
have already played Michigan.
If the Rose Bowl
takes Notre Dame,
the Orange Bowl
Swill probably take
Football UF against an
Atlantic Coast
Conference representative. But
if the Rose Bowl picks LSU, the
Gators would be shut out of the
Orange Bowl in favor of the Big
East champion. Only two schools
from the same conference are al-
lowed to participate in BCS bowls
and Arkansas and LSU would
already be in.
The Sugar Bowl will pit Notre
Dame or the Big East cham-
pion against the victor of the UF-
Arkansas game.
The Fiesta Bowl will take No. 8
Boise State and the winner of the
Big 12 Championship game.

THANKSGIVING

Some students pursue tradition outside family circle


By JENNIFER SHEPARD
Alligator Contributing Writer

While most UF students were checking
bus schedules or eating turkey last week,
Katherine Murphy was attending an on-cam-
pus concert to pass the time.
Murphy, a freshman from Pensacola, was
one of many who didn't make it home for
Thanksgiving.
Some students stayed in Gainesville to
work, while others simply didn't want to
make long trips back to their hometowns.
"I decided a few weeks ago probably
when I got my job, which is the reason I'm


staying," said Murphy, who works at the Gap
clothing store in The Oaks Mall.
She was hired as a seasonal employee
specifically to work on big holiday shopping
days, like the day after Thanksgiving and the
weeks leading up to Christmas.
"I would like to go home because I have
a lot of friends there, but I know how impor-
tant it is for me to work," she said.
As soon as Murphy found out she would
have to stay in Gainesville for Thanksgiving,
she called and told her mother, who offered
to visit with Murphy's younger sister.
"I was a little surprised, though, that it's
so important to my mom," Murphy said.


After thinking for a few seconds, she added,
"I guess I shouldn't be surprised. She is my
mor."

"It's a lot better than eating a
frozen pizza for Thanksgiving."
Tommy Gilliam
UFjunior

Tommy Gilliam, a communication sci-
ences and disorders junior, went home to Fort
Lauderdale in 2004 and 2005, but he listed car
trouble as one of the reasons he skipped the
six-hour trip this year.
"My car's broken, and we're really not


having Thanksgiving this year," he said.
Gilliam had planned to work at a craft fair
over the long weekend, but a friend offered
to take him home to Orange Park with her,
he said.
"She thought I'd be sad, staying here all
weekend," he said. "She thought itd be bet-
ter than having a nice Thanksgiving all on
my own."
Gilliam said he felt "indescribable joy"
when he found out he'd be having dinner at
his friend's house.

ON CAMPUS

Aquatic department finds sanctuary at 'Clubhouse'


By ADRIAN MONTANEZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

Students in UF's Department of
Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences usu-
ally have a hard time when they try to
find their professors' office for the first
time.
It's small. You'd bump into the wall
if you took more than three steps across,
and it's only about twice as deep as it
is wide.
The tiny, unmarked, white building
was a storage room for UF's Institute
of Food and Agricultural Sciences, but
now it's where about 60 students and 15
faculty members hold meetings on cam-
pus and a place where professors can
spend their time working in between
classes.
"I couldn't find it at first," said Matt
Lauretta, a graduate student in the pro-
gram. "They had to wave me in because
I was walking around all lost, looking
for it."
Despite its small size, faculty mem-
bers and students are glad to have a
space on campus, and students have
nicknamed it "The Clubhouse."
However, a few times a week the
small office gets' crowded, the air gets
thick and elbows jostle a bit too much.
"Sometimes it gets hot and we get
people standing outside the door,
looking inside and writing down some
equations from the board," said associ-
ate professor Mike Allen.
Although no classes are taught in the
office, the department holds a study ses-
sion twice a week for about 15 people.


When looking for privacy, students
and professors talk outside the build-
ing at nearby picnic tables so as not to
bother anyone or be overheard.
A map showing students how to get
to a nearby bathroom is an almost-per-
manent feature on the office's dry-erase
board, since the building has none of its
own.
Students have thought about wheth-
er the department's name should be on
the building to make it easier to find,
but decided against it.

"They had to wave me in be-
cause I was walking around all
lost, looking for it."
Matt Lauretta
UF graduate student

"If you think of it, it would be kind
of embarrassing," Lauretta said.
The story that brings the depart-
ment's headquarters on campus to this
tiny room is one that began about 20
years ago, Allen said.
When the department was first
formed, it was based at 7922 NW 71st
St. At the time only about five faculty
members were involved, and the de-
partment was mostly research oriented,
he said.
An on-campus facility wasn't a pri-
ority back then, Allen said.
Now, with about 60 students and 15
faculty members, an on-campus office
has become a necessity.
Although the department remains
based off campus, some classes are


taught on campus, he said.
Professors have their own off-cam-
pus offices, but it's convenient for them
to have a place on campus to meet with
students, Allen said.
"This is the first time I actually get
the chance to be on campus," said Jason
Dotson, a graduate student in the pro-
gram.
Driving from campus to the depart-
ment's off-campus offices can take up
to 45 minutes, and it's a headache when
professors have to drive back and forth
between their offices and the class-
rooms where they teach, said Bill Pine,
a fisheries and aquatic sciences associ-
ate professor.
The department's faculty looked
around campus for a space and found
the building, which at the time was
being used to store desks and old com-
puters.
They asked administrators at IFAS if
it would be possible to use it as an of-
fice, Pine said.
The Department of Fisheries and
Aquatic Sciences is a part of IFAS,
which allowed them to use the room as
an office, said Joe Joyce, IFAS executive
associate vice president.
"They needed space to interact with
students," Joyce said. "We are glad we
could help."
Despite modifications, the back of
the building, separated by a wall, is still
used for storage, Allen said.
But professors aren't complaining.
"We are happy to be able to have a
place on campus," Pine said. "Location
is everything."

Scammers hook students with counterfeit Web sites


By SONIA ACOSTA
Alligator Contributing Writer

The lines are cast. They are far-
reaching and numerous. Hoping
that just a few will bite the bait, they
lure millions of people.
UF alumnus Emmanuel Laroche
was caught by phishers in June
when he filled out a request from
what he thought was eBay's PayPal.
They wanted him to update account
information due to a security breach
that might cause him to lose access.
Unfortunately for Laroche, the
e-mail was not from PayPal.
"I had received several e-mails
with the same request for informa-
tion, but something did not seem
right about entering my PIN num-
ber, so I ignored them," Laroche
said. "After enough attempts, I
figured it had to be legit, so I filled
it out only to later find out I had just
handed over all of my information
to criminals."
Laroche started to notice small
amounts of money missing from his
checking account. A few weeks later,

he received a bill in the mail for a
credit card he had not applied for.
"That's when I realized I should
have gone with my first instinct,"
he said.
Scammers are increasingly using
phishing to get personal informa-
tion from individuals and use it for
fraudulent purposes.
Phishing is identity theft carried
out through a Web site that seems to
represent a legitimate company, said
Bank of America spokeswoman Lisa
Vallejo.
"The visitors to the site, thinking
they are buying something from a
real business, submit their personal
information to the site," she said.
"The criminals then use the personal
information for their own purposes
or sell the information to other
criminal parties."
Scammers also send personal
e-mails to consumers, pretending
to be banks or businesses such as
PayPal. The e-mails, fabricated with
logos and messages sometimes dif-
ficult to discern from authentic ones,
request personal information such


as addresses, Social Security num-
bers, debit card numbers, PINs and
telephone numbers.
"Some of them can be very so-
phisticated," said Wachovia finan-
cial specialist Greg Cox.
Still, there are dues that the
messages are counterfeit, including
misspelled words and poor writing,
Cox said.
Cox warned that a real organiza-
tion would never ask for informa-
tion such as PINs over the Internet
or the phone.
Despite the signs, consumers are
sometimes caught off guard and
fall for the phishers' scam. Vallejo
suggests that victims of phishing
take the following steps to protect
themselves. Consumers should tell
the credit bureau agencies that they
may be a victim of identity theft and
ensure that no personal information
has been compromised.
Also, notify the Fraud Hotline at
the Social Security Administration
and the Federal Trade Commission
Identity Theft Hotline that you may
be a victim of identity theft.

Finally, check with utility compa-
nies including phone companies
- for fraudulent accounts that may
have been opened in the consumer's
name.
"That's when I realized I
should have gone with my
first instinct."
Emmanuel Laroche
phishing victim

Cox said phishing and financial
fraud have become a challenging
part of the financial services indus-
try. In southern parts of Florida,
about 75 percent of Wachovia's
operating costs go to recovery from
financial scams such as phishing.
According to the Federal Trade
Commission, the Fair Credit Billing
Act limits your liability for unau-
thorized credit card charges to $50
per card.
With debit cards, the amount of
money consumers are held respon-
sible for can depend on how quickly
they report the loss.


Reporting unauthorized transac-
tions within two business days lim-
its losses to $50. Between three and
60 days, consumers are liable for up
to $500. And after 60 days, they lose
the entire amount stolen.
Cox said phishing could cause
consumers to shy away from online
banking. But he suggested that us-
ing online banking can actually help
consumers catch any potential fraud
faster because they can check their
accounts more frequently.
"It feels as if someone has broken
into your home," he said. "It can be
a real sense of invasion, and it can
affect the confidence people have in
the bank."
Signing for purchases instead of
using a PIN can also add security to
your transaction, he said.
One phishing incident can
wreak havoc on a person's life and
financial health. It can also be very
costly to financial institutions, which
ultimately affects the kind of service
consumers can receive from them.
Consumers should be alert and take
steps to maximize their security.

Grocery store opening


brings 'fresh' choices


By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Gainesville residents hungry for exot-
ic foods or organic products can now find
both at a new supermarket in northwest
Gainesville.
The Fresh Market, a supermarket that
specializes in unique food items, opened
Wednesday at 4120 NW 16th Blvd.
The store offers sauces, cheeses and
produce not found in typical supermar-
kets, as well as more than 50 types of
olive oil. People who enjoy experiment-
ing with recipes will enjoy shopping at
the new store, said Harry Soto, district
manager of new stores.
"We are a very different market," he
said. "We're one of those stores where
you can find rare things, things that are
hard to find."
Company research showed that
Gainesville would be a promising loca-
tion for a store. The Fresh Market seeks to
attract customers who are "more refined"
in their buying habits and Gainesville
is full of people who fit that description,
Soto said.
Students who don't have time to ex-
periment can pick up ready-to-go meals,
including salads, rotisserie chickens,
sandwiches and wraps, he said.
The store is not laid out in a typical


supermarket style. Track lighting lines
the ceilings, and the floors are laid with
Italian tile. Customers often compare
the environment of the store to that of
smaller markets they have visited in
France, Soto said.
"You don't feel like you're in a super-
market," Soto said.
"We're one of those stores
where you can find rare things."
Harry Soto
The Fresh Market district manager

The produce section at The Fresh
Market features a variety of organic fruits
and vegetables. Organic food must pass a
60-page set of rules and regulations about
how it should be grown, said Marilyn
Swisher, an associate professor of sus-
tainable agriculture at UF. Organic food
is also free of pesticides and hormones.
But with all the extras that The Fresh
Market offers, its prices may be higher
than college students are used to.
"I would consider going once in a
while," said Lauren Menke, a microbi-

- Wynn questionable for Saturday


FOLLOW, from page 1
Sunday for the most part. The coach did
say he would like to see every major con-
ference institute a championship game.
"I think that's the right thing to do,"
Meyer said. "Every conference should have
a playoff and the champion of that should
go compete for the national championship.
Will that happen? I don't know."
"I think it's only fair that each league
have a championship game," Arkansas
coach Houston Nutt said.
Meyer expects to have freshman


Percy Harvin available for the SEC
Championship game. The receiver/run-
ning back lost feeling in his neck area and
was carted off the field during Saturday's
21-14 win against Florida State.
The news regarding tailback DeShawn
Wynn is not so promising. Wynn is ques-
tionable after dislocating his left shoulder
against the Seminoles. He has been both-
ered by a sore shoulder for much of the
past two seasons.
"I'm a little concerned," Meyer said.
"It's a significant injury, and any time he
gets contact on that shoulder it's a prob-
lem."


Many celebrate holiday among friends


THAN KS, from page 1

for Thanksgiving," he said.
Freshman Debbie
Thompson knew in sum-
mer she wouldn't go home
for Thanksgiving. Her fam-
ily, originally from Haiti,
doesn't celebrate the holiday.
Instead, they wait for Haitian
Independence Day in January.


"That's when we really cel-
ebrate," she said. "That's when
we eat."
For Thanksgiving weekend,
Thompson went to her home-
town of Miami, but not to her
house.
Thompson had only decid-
ed two weeks ago to go back
to Miami.
She didn't go home because
her grandmother had moved


into her old room when she
started college, she said.
Instead, she secretly cel-
ebrated Thanksgiving at a
friend's house.
Thompson said the six-hour
ride to Miami with her friend
would be a "killer," but it
would be worth it if it led to a
big dinner.
"I'm going to eat wherever
the hell there's food," she said.

Minus signs

UF should give proposed

grade system a chance
iamn. UF students can't catch a break. First the admin-
tration tries to hike tuition. Then it slashes National
J IEMerit scholarships and spending for the College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences. And let's not forget UF President
Bernie Machen's Academic Enhancement Program.
Sometimes it seems everyone in Gainesville is out to get you
- professors, administrators, bookstores and towing compa-
nies, all conspiring to make your life a little bit harder. And the
hits just keep on coming.
Next month, the Faculty Senate will decide whether or not
to give students "minus" grades as in A-minus, B-minus and
the dreaded C-minus. Faculty Senate Chairwoman Danaya
Wright says minus grades would help professors "grade you
more accurately." Which is true.
Then again, no one wants a C-minus. A solid "C" has a rug-
ged, workmanlike appeal to it it's not great, but at least it's
not terrible. Its middle-of-the-road. Democratic. But a C-minus?
That just screams, "1 should have gone to Florida State."
Predictably, Student Government is against the idea
Student Senate President Josh Weiss says minus grades
would hurt students more than they would help them. Maybe
he's right.
But for once, we're siding with the powers-that-be.
Sure, a big, fat minus won't look great on your transcript.
But the more steps in UF's grading system, the less arbitrary
the grades. It doesn't make sense to jump from a B-plus to an
A or vice versa over a couple of measly little percentage
points.
Besides, most of Florida's other public universities already
use minuses and what's the point of having grades at all if
they're not comparable from one school to the next? We just
hope the Faculty Senate phases the new system in after we're
gone. We got a B-plus in Wildlife Issues, and well be damned if
some punk freshman waltzes in and snatches an A-minus.


That's more like it


UF's campus preach-
ers could learn a
thing or two from
George Brantley, senior
pastor at The Rock of
Gainesville church. Last
week, Brantley and a few
of his parishioners came to
the Plaza of the Americas
armed with turkey, mashed
potatoes, and pumpkin pie
- and did more to spread
the good word than Joey
Johnsen's rants ever have.
Of course, you can never
go wrong with free food
- students would listen
to Mussolini if he handed
out a few pizzas. But
even without the turkey,
Brantley's approach would
have been a refreshing
change of pace.
He didn't shout about
fornication. He didn't call


anyone a sodomite. All
he did was serve a few
free lunches showing
students the tenets of his
faith without "screaming
and yelling and shoving it
down their throats," as the
pastor said.
Bravo.
Like the rest of UF's
campus, the Plaza of the
Americas is a public space.
Preachers like Johnsen
have every right to stand
there and ramble on about
the evils of pornography,
premarital sex and hell,
why not women's suf-
frage, while they're at it?
But if they're actually out
to change students' minds,
they should ditch the hard
sell, lighten up and take a
page from Brantley's play-
book.-

Column

Democrats' divisions could undo win


L ess than a month has passed since this year's
Congressional elections, and divisions are already
emerging among Democrats. Surprise, surprise.
Even though Rep. Nancy Pelosi is poised to become
speaker of the House of Representatives, moderate
Democrats are already distancing themselves from her,
lest they be branded "liberal," as she has been.
Since 2000, pundits have been yammering that the
country is becoming steadily more conservative but
the reality is that Democrats have consistently failed to
display a united front for more than two days at a time.
Take the recent scuffle over the post of House majority
leader, for instance. Pelosi supported her longtime ally,
Rep. John Murtha, for the position. He was an influential
voice against the Iraq war one of the first members of
Congress to call for troop reductions.
But instead of rallying behind Pelosi's choice,
Democrats in the House elected Rep. Steny Hoyer, a
moderate they believed would offset Pelosi's image as a
California liberal. Oh, the horror!
The Democrats' recurrent inability to present a unani-
mous and coherent platform to voters is the reason this
month's election can't be called a turning of the tide. As
an idealist, I'd like to think this country isn't turning into
a conservative theocracy.
But the Democrats' lack of a united stance on any is-
sue has kept them from making any considerable gains
-since-Bush was elected and it's why their victory this
time was hardly that. Despite a gain of six Senate seats,
they barely have a majority.
It took former Rep. Tom DeLay's numerous ethi-
cal lapses, former Rep. Mark Foley's pedophilia and
the Jack Abramoff lobbyist nightmare for voters to say


they're fed up with Republican
leadership.
Even though it's been painfully
obvious to most of us that the war
in Iraq has bred more terrorists
than it has killed, it took voters
Anuradha Pandey almost 2,700 U.S. deaths to realize
Editorial Notebook that Iraq may be a lost cause.
letters@alligator.org The only reason the map looks
less like a sea of red is because the
Republicans did everything pos-
sible to screw up. It's as if they thought, "No matter how
corrupt we are, the people will never elect those baby-
killing tree huggers. So why not embezzle a little?"
Thankfully, they were wrong voters expressed their
disapproval at the polls. But the election had more to do
with Republican failures than Democratic successes. A
new era has not begun, as some claimed on Nov. 8th.
The sad thing is that many Democrats ran as con-
servatives, making them Democrats only in name.- For
example, Jim Webb, who unseated Virginia Sen. George
Allen, served in Ronald Reagan's administration as sec-
retary of the Navy.
There are dozens of other Democrats who ran on the
"traditional values" platform. Let's just hope their defi-
nition of traditional values is a far cry from DeLay's.
It's already been said by the pundits, but if Democrats
want to have a realistic chance at the presidency in 2008,
they need to grow a pair and stop trying to minimize
their differences with Republicans. They have two years
to win back the trust of voters. They'd better think fast.

TALLAHASSEE Not to
make light of the situation, but
Percy Harvin's neck wasn't the
only thing that went numb after
he was crushed on a slant. So
did UF's offense.
1Harvin was an unstoppable
force in nearly two quarters
of action against Florida State.
UF's freshmanreceiver/running
back rushed for 86 yards on just
four carries. One of those touch-
es was a 41-yard touchdown
scamper that put UF up 14-0 in
the second quarter.
But Harvin was carted off
the field just before halftime
after receiving a helmet-to-hel-
met blow from FSU linebacker
Buster Davis. The Gators did not
score again until 10:22 left in the
fourth quarter. Harvin should
play in Saturday's Southeastern
Conference Championship
game against Arkansas. UF will
certainly need him.
"Whenever he's in there,
you kind of hold your breath
because he could make a play
at any time," receiver Andre
Caldwell said. "Then when he
got hurt, it changed the offense
a little bit."
After seeing Harvin's X-
rays and MRI results, Meyer
expects him to play against the


Razorbacks.
"All reports are positive,"
Meyer said on a Sunday tele-
conference. "He should be able
to go for Saturday."
"When you lose a dynam-
ic player like that, you
saw the lack of big plays
in the second half."
Dan Mullen
UF offensive coordinator

Harvin was solely responsi-
ble for UF's second touchdown
of the game. He started that sec-
ond quarter scoring drive with
a 28-yard run up the right side-
line. Tailback DeShawn Wynn
lost 1 yard on the following
play. Harvin took a direct snap
on the ensuing play and sprint-
ed for a 41-yard touchdown.
"I don't know if you've no-
ticed, but we kind of need him,"
Meyer said sarcastically. "The
one thing we want to be is the
fastest team in college football.
You saw Percy make the entire
FSU secondary miss (in the first
half). (His injury) kind of put us
in reverse for a little bit."
"He is the fastest player I've
ever played with," Wynn said.
But Harvin went down on a
short slant route late in the sec-
ond quarter. He caught the ball
amid heavy traffic and collided

helmets with Davis, who flew in
from the left side.
The freshman lay motion-
less on the field for a couple of
minutes. He eventually began
moving his feet, but a stretcher
was requested anyway.
"It was quiet on the sidelines
for a while," receiver Cornelius
Ingram said. "It was scary at
first because we thought it was
something real serious."
The Gators huddled on the
sidelines for a brief prayer.
After the game, Meyer said
Harvin felt numbness in the
neck area but that the receiver
told him he was OK while being
carted away. With one minute
remaining in the game, Harvin
returned to the field, just in time
to sing the alma mater with his
teammates.
Harvin had.been hobbled on
and off by a sprained left ankle
he suffered against Tennessee.
He has not been healthy for
an extended stretch since that
game. Both. in the Tennessee
and FSU games, the Gators
struggled after scrapping much
of Harvin's game plan.
"When you lose a dynamic
player like that, you saw the
lack of big plays in the second
half," offensive coordinator
Dan Mullen said. "He's a dif-
ference-maker out there on the
field."

Kicker debate continues after two more Hetland misses


* HETLAND HAS MADE JUST THREE
OF 12 FIELD GOALS THIS SEASON.

By DAN TREAT
Alligafor Staff Writer
dtreat@alligator.org

TALLAHASSEE It may seem unfathom-
able, but an 11-1 UF team still doesn't have a


reliable kicker.
Chris Hetland has held the job for the
entire season, but he missed
two more field goals Saturday
from 38 and 35 yards,
respectively running his
Football tally for the season to a putrid
3 for 12.
According to Meyer, however, Hetland still
hasn't been beat out in practice, and that is the


reason he continues to be on the field.
"We've just got to keep going," Meyer said.
"It's open every week. We open it up every
week for a battle, and as long as he's hitting
the ball and doesn't get beat out, Chris is going
to be the kicker.
"He's hitting the ball and he's just barely
missing them, but he is missing them. We're
going to open (the competition) up again."


QUICK HITS: UF's three interceptions tied a
season high, as the Gators also picked off
three passes against Southern Miss, LSU and
Alabama. ... Chris Leak passed for over 200
yards for the 32nd time in his career, setting
a new UF career record. ... Ryan Smith's
seventh interception moved him into a tie for
second on the school's single-season record
List. Keiwan Ratliff holds the record with nine
interceptions in 2003.

Although four UF players scored in
double-digits, including Green's sea-
son-high 25 points, the Gators, who
averaged nearly 21 assists per game
heading into Saturday night's contest,
only had nine.
"We didn't play to our offensive
identity tonight," Donovan said. "We
made a lot of poor decisions down
the stretch and had questionable shot
selection throughout the game. We
weren't moving the ball around as
well as we could have."
Still, the Gators managed to force
overtime when forward Joakim Noah
tipped in the rebound off a missed
Green three-pointer. That tied the
score at 70 with 4.2 seconds left.
The Gators lost some momentum
when Horford, who had been in foul
trouble most of the game, committed
his fifth early in the overtime period.
Still, UF appeared to have the
game locked when Green hit a three
to propel the Gators to an 80-77 lead
with 1:22 left on the clock. However,
some hiccups let the Jayhawks back in


the game.
"To get the game into overtime, we
felt like we had all the momentum,"
Noah said. "In the end, it hurts be-
cause it just didn't happen for us. We
felt like we had a great chance to win
a game where we didn't play our best,
and we let it slip away and that's un-
fortunate."
Kansas freshman forward Darrell
Arthur sank a couple of clutch free
throws to cut the lead to 13 Then,
Green committed a turnover with
40.8 seconds remaining, and Kansas'
Brandon Rush scored a layup to seal
the Gators' defeat:
Forward Corey Brewer air-balled
a jumper in the lane and Jayhawks
guard Russell Robinson hit one more
free throw to finalize the score 82-80.
UF tried once more to score a
late basket, but its luck had run out.
Brewer's wide-open three-point at-
tempt with less than a second left
clanked off the rim.
The Gators won't have much time
to lament the loss because they are
lined up to play Southern on Tuesday.
"We need to go back to the gym,
refocus and get back to being us,"
Noah said.


Wynn, Harvin missed half


FOOT, from page 16


while the UF ground game hit a few
bumps.
Both Percy Harvin (four car-
ries, 86 yards, one touchdown) and
DeShawn Wynn (nine carries, 10
yards) were unavailable for most
of the second half with injuries.
Harvin had a neck stinger and was
carted off.
The Gators rushed 15 times for -8
yards in the final two quarters, add-


ing to Meyer's anxiety.
"You take DeShawn Wynn and
Percy Harvin out, and the run game
gets watered down real fast," Meyer
said.
Kicker Chris Hetland didn't do
much to keep Meyer happy either,
missing field goals from 35 and 38
yards and running Hetland's suc-
cess rate to a miserable 3 for 12 this
season. In the end, it was Leak who'
kept Meyer's spirits up.
"I try to tell Coach he looks
younger and younger every day,"
Leak said.

more tournament teams.
The Pacific-10 and the Big Ten also have
seven.
Still, despite only having two losses, the Gators
were seeded ninth, one spot behind Minnesota,
who lost seven matches.
If the seedings hold up, the two will meet in
the Sweet 16, with the winner likely advancing to


play No. 1 seeded Nebraska.
The Comhuskers knocked UF out of the tour-
nament a year ago.
The bracket was announced one day after the
Conference Challenge in Orlando, where junior
outside hitter Marcie Hampton was named the
tournament's MVP.
UF swept Marquette 30-24,30-26,30-28 Friday
and No. 24 St. John's 30-19, 30-22,30-19 Saturday.

Another tortured victory for 11-win UF


* UF DOWNS FSU FOR
THIRD TIME IN A ROW.

By NICK ZACCARDI

nzaccardi@alligator.brg

TALLAHASSEE UF coach
Urban Meyer failed to gain any
style points but managed to
sprout a few gray hairs instead.
The Gators eked out another
win against an unranked oppo-
nent Saturday, dispatching rival
Florida State 21-14 in a game that
tested UF's offense as much as it
did Meyer's follicles.
"You see these gray hairs
right here?" Meyer asked, point-
ing near his temple. "Next year
about October, I'll be bald."
For now, he'll have to use
a little Just for Men and hope
the Gators' next two games go
a little smoother than Saturday
afternoon's tilt at Doak Campbell
Stadium.
"Here's our style: You got at
Tennessee, you've got Kentucky,
you've got Alabama, LSU,
Georgia, and Auburn and at
Tallahassee. So much for style.
You want to put that (schedule)

in Atlanta."
In Tallahassee, quarterback
Chris Leak broke a 14-14 tie early
in the fourth quarter, connecting
with Dallas Baker on a 25-yard
deep route to cap the game-win-
ning drive.
Meyer and the Gators waited
out the final 10 minutes as FSU's
last three possessions ended on
failed fourth-down attempts.
"We beat our rivals in a great
game," Meyer said. "Give credit
where credit is due. That was
a team that was battling their
hearts out with some terrific
players."
Culminating with the Baker
touchdown, Leak bailed out the
Gators with a dutch 10-play,
74-yard drive to win his third
straight against the Seminoles.
"I told Coach on the sideline,
Just open it up and let me go
pick 'em apart,'" Leak said.
And that's just what he did.
In the first five plays of the
drive, the senior completed four
passes and ran for a first down.
"In the huddle, it was busi-
ness as usual," Leak said.
Leak completed 21 of 34
passes for two touchdowns.,
"We made the decision for
that one drive we were going
to throw it every down," Meyer
said. "Chris Leak did a heckuva
job managing the offense."'

Gators to host first four rounds of NCAAs


By JOSH ARMSTRONG
Alligator Writer
jarmstrong@alligator.org

UF will host the first and second rounds of
the NCAA Volleyball Tournament along with
regional matches, the NCAA announced
Sunday as it released the tournament sched-
ule.
The O'Connell Center will house four
rounds of the tournament, giving the Gators
(28-2) a chance to reach the Final Four with-
out leaving Gainesville.
"We were thrilled. It was as exciting of a
reaction as any in all the years (the coaching
staff has) been here," UF coach Mary Wise
said. "Fortunately, we haven't had the drama
of whether we're in or not. I can't imagine


what that would be like. I hope we never
find out."

lost at home since Nov. 21,
2004, against Tennessee.
UF will face Florida
A&M (21-6) on Thursday.
The Gators have never
lost in the first round un-
der Wise.
The announcement
took a moment to sink
in for the Gators' players. The team stayed
quiet for a few seconds before bursting into
cheers.
"I looked around at everybody because I
realized it, but nobody else was saying any-
thing," junior setter Angie McGinnis said.


"Everyone suddenly realized, 'Oh, we're at
home.'"
Gainesville was already one of four cities
to host NCAARegional matches Dec. 8 and 9,
but the home-court advantage in the first and
second rounds came as a surprise.
"We had about convinced ourselves
-because of the lack of teams in this area
that were playing (in the tournament) that
we would be traveling," Wise said.
FAMU and Jacksonville State are the only
other Florida teams in the tournament.
The Southeastern Conference surprisingly
was awarded its most berths ever with seven:

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2006 UF on outside looking in for BCS title game By LOUIS ANASTASIS Alligator Staff Writer lanastasis@a1ligator.org Sorry, Gators. You'll probably have to settle for a BCS bowl at best. And a loss to Arkansas in Saturday's Southeastern Conference game will likely send you to the Capital One Bowl. Resignation might be the prevailing theme in Gainesville after the release of the latest Bowl Championship Series standings on Sunday. The Gators (11-1, 7-1 SEC) are in the same No. 4 slot they have been mired in for four weeks. And barI im uasey / Alligator start Coach Urban Meyer and the Gators will probably get shut out of the national championship game unless they can defeat Arkansas and UCLA can upset Southern Cal on Saturday. ring a deluge of luck, they will be no higher than No. 3 if they defeat Arkansas. Even UF coach Urban Meyer, who one week ago lobbied loud and hard against voters and a possible rematch of Michigan and Ohio State, has quieted down. "I think the BCS has done the best they possibly could in a very difficult situation," Meyer said on a Sunday teleconference. "Obviously, for anyone that thinks logically, it's not the best system. But it's the best system at this time." Southern Cal is the team boxing the Gators out of Glendalh, Ariz. The No. 2 Trojans leapfrogged Michigan after dominating Notre Dame 44-24. Michigan fell to No. 3. The BCS, Harris Poll, Coaches' Poll and computers all have identical one-through-five rankings. UF's final hope lies with the other Los Angeles team. UCLA -6-to-1 underdogs -must upset USC on Saturday. Then the Gators must pray that a win against the Razorbacks catapults them past Michigan. UF is just .04 points behind the Wolverines in the computers. But none of this matters if the Gators lose to now-No. 9 Arkansas and USC defeats UCLA. If that happens, UP will most likely play in the Capital One Bowl. But the Orange Bowl still prefers the Gators if they can get them. Everything hinges on the Rose Bowl. This bowl must choose between Notre Dame and No. 5 LSU to play Michigan. The Tigers are the logical pick after their 31-26 win against Arkansas. But Rose Bowl representatives still want Notre Dame. The problem is that the Fighting Irish have already played Michigan. If the Rose Bowl takes Notre Dame, the Orange Bowl F will probably take Football UF against -an Atlantic Coast Conference representative. But if the Rose Bowl picks LSU, the Gators would be shut out of the Orange Bowl in favor of the Big East champion. Only two schools from the same conference are allowed to participate in BCS bowls and Arkansas and LSU would already be in. The Sugar Bowl will pit Notre Dame or the Big East champion against the victor of the UFArkansas game. The Fiesta Bowl will take No. 8 Boise State and the winner of the Big 12 Championship game. Meyer avoided BCS talk on SEE FOLLOW, PAGE 5 THANKSGIVING Some students pursue tradition outside family circle By JENNIFER SHEPARD Alligator Contributing Writer While most UF students were checking bus schedules or eating turkey last week, Katherine Murphy was attending an on-campus concert to pass the time. Murphy, a freshman from Pensacola, was one of many who didn't make it home for Thanksgiving. Some students stayed in Gainesville to work, while others simply didn't want to make long trips back to their hometowns. "I decided a few weeks ago -probably when I got my job, which is the reason I'm staying," said Murphy, who works at the Gap clothing store in The Oaks Mall. She was hired as a seasonal employee specifically to work on big holiday shopping days, like the day after Thanksgiving and the weeks leading up to Christmas. "I would like to go home because I have a lot of friends there, but I know how important it is for me to work," she said. As soon as Murphy found out she would have to stay in Gainesville for Thanksgiving, she called and told her mother, who offered to visit with Murphy's younger sister. "I was a little surprised, though, that it's so important to my mom," Murphy said. After thinking for a few seconds, she added, "I guess I shouldn't be surprised. She is my mom." "It's a lot better than eating a frozen pizza for Thanksgiving." Tommy Gilliam UFjunior Tommy Gilliam, a communication sciences and disorders junior, went home to Fort Lauderdale in 2004 and 2005, but he listed car trouble as one of the reasons he skipped the six-hour trip this year. "My car's broken, and we're really not having Thanksgiving this year," he said. Gilliam had planned to work at a craft fair over the long weekend, but a friend offered to take him home to Orange Park with her, he said. "She thought I'd be sad, staying here all weekend," he said. "She thought it'd be better than having a nice Thanksgiving all on my own." Gilliam said he felt "indescribable joy" when he found out he'd be having dinner at his friend's house.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2006 E ALLIGATOR, 3 ON CAMPUS Aquatic department finds sanctuary at 'Clubhouse By ADRIAN MONTANEZ Alligator Contributing Writer Students in UF's Department of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences usually have a hard time when they try to find their professors' office for the first time. It's small. You'd bump into the wall if you took more than three steps across, and it's only about twice as deep as it is wide. The tiny, unmarked, white building was a storage room for UF's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, but now it's where about 60 students and 15 faculty members hold meetings on campus and a place where professors can spend their time working in between classes. "I couldn't find it at first," said Matt Lauretta, a graduate student in the program. "They had to wave me in because I was walking around all lost, looking for it." Despite its small size, faculty members and students are glad to have a space on campus, and students have nicknamed it "The Clubhouse." However, a few times a week the small office gets crowded, the air gets thick and elbows jostle a bit too much. "Sometimes it gets hot and we get people standing outside the door, looking inside and writing down some equations from the board," said associate professor Mike Allen. Although no classes are taught in the office, the department holds a study session twice a week for about 15 people. When looking for privacy, students and professors talk outside the building at nearby picnic tables so as not to bother anyone or be overheard. A map showing students how to get to a nearby bathroom is an almost-permanent feature on the office's dry-erase board, since the building has none of its own. Students have thought-about whether the department's name should be on the building to make it easier to find, but decided against it. "They had to wave me in because I was walking around all lost, looking for it." Matt Lauretta UF graduate student "If you think of it, it would be kind of embarrassing," Lauretta said. The story that brings the department's headquarters on campus to this tiny room is one that began about 20 years ago, Allen said. When the department was first formed, it was based at 7922 NW 71st St. At the time only about five faculty members were involved, and the department was mostly research oriented, he said. An on-campus facility wasn't a priority back then, Allen said. Now, with about 60 students and 15 faculty members, an on-campus office has become a necessity. Although the department remains based off campus, some classes are taught on campus, he said. Professors have their own off-campus offices, but it's convenient for them to have a place on campus to meet with students, Allen said. "This is the first time I actually get the chance to be on campus," said Jason Dotson, a graduate student in the program. Driving from campus to the department's off-campus offices can take up to 45 minutes, and it's a headache when professors have to drive back and forth between their offices and the classrooms where they teach, said Bill Pine, a fisheries and aquatic sciences associate professor. The department's faculty looked around campus for a space and found the building, which at the time was being used to store desks and old computers. They asked administrators at IFAS if it would be possible to use it as an office, Pine said. The Department of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences is a part of IFAS, which allowed them to use the room as an office, said Joe Joyce, IFAS executive associate vice president. "They needed space to interact with students," Joyce said. "We are glad we could help." Despite modifications, the back of the building, separated by a wall, is still used for storage, Allen said. But professors aren't complaining. "We are happy to be able to have a place on campus," Pine said. "Location is everything."

4, ALLIGATOR E MONDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2006 IDENTITY THEF Scammers hook students with counterfeit Web sites By SONIA ACOSTA Alligator Contributing Writer The lines are cast. They are farreaching and numerous. Hoping that just a few will bite the bait, they lure millions of people. UF alumnus Emmanuel Laroche was caught by phishers in June when he filled out a request from what he thought was eBay's PayPal. They wanted him to update account information due to a security breach that might cause him to lose access. Unfortunately for Laroche, the e-mail was not from PayPal. "I had received several e-mails with the same request for information, but something did not seem right about entering my PIN number, so I ignored them," Laroche said. "After enough attempts, I figured it had to be legit, so I filled it out only to later find out I had just handed over all of my information to criminals." Laroche started to notice small amounts of money missing from his checking account. A few weeks later, Firnance$ not adding up? 500 plasma donors needed now! Wireless Internet Now Available!

No appointment necessary k'SI he received a bill in the mail for a credit card he had not applied for. "That's when I realized I should have gone with my first instinct," he said. Scammers are increasingly using phishing to get personal information from individuals and use it for fraudulent purposes. Phishing is identity theft carried out through a Web site that seems to represent a legitimate company, said Bank of America spokeswoman Lisa Vallejo. "The visitors to the site, thinking they am buying something from a real business, submit their personal information to the site," she said. "The criminals then use the personal information for their own purposes or sell the information to other criminal parties." Scammers also send personal e-mails to consumers, pretending to be banks or businesses such as PayPal. The e-mails, fabricated with logos and messages sometimes difficult to discern from authentic ones, request personal information such as addresses, Social Security numbers, debit card numbers, PINs and telephone numbers. "Some of them can be very sophisticated," said Wachovia financial specialist Greg Cox. Still, there are clues that the messages are counterfeit, including misspelled words and poor writing, Cox said. Cox warned that a real organization would never ask for information such as PINs over the Intemet or the phone. Despite the signs, consumers are sometimes caught off guard and fall for the phishers' scam. Vallejo suggests that victims of phishing take the following steps to protect themselves. Consumers should tell -the credit bureau agencies that they may be a victim of identity theft and ensure that no personal information has been compromised. Also, notify the Fraud Hotline at the Social Security Administration and the Federal Trade Commission Identity Theft Hotline that you may be a victim of identity theft.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2006 N ALLIGATOR, 5 13USINESS Grocery store opening brings 'fresh' choices By EVAN DREXLER Alligator Contributing Writer Gainesville residents hungry for exotic foods or organic products-can now find both at a new supermarket in northwest Gainesville. The Fresh Market, a supermarket that specializes in unique food items, opened Wednesday at 4120 NW 16th Blvd. The store offers sauces, cheeses and produce not found in typical supermarkets, as well as more than 50 types of olive oil. People who enjoy experimenting with recipes will enjoy shopping at the new store, said Harry Soto, district manager of new stores. "We are a very different market," he said. "We're one of those stores where you can find rare things, things that are hard to find." Company research showed that Gainesville would be a promising location for a store. The Fresh Market seeks to attract customers who are "more refined" in their buying habits -and Gainesville is full of people who fit that description, Soto said. Students who don't have time to experiment can pick up ready-to-go meals, including salads, rotisserie chickens, sandwiches and wraps, he said. The store is not laid out in a typical supermarket style. Track lighting lines the ceilings, and the floors are laid with Italian tile. Customers often compare the environment of the store to that of smaller markets they have visited in France, Soto said. "You don't feel like you're in a supermarket," Soto said. "We're one of those stores where you can find rare things." Harry Soto The Fresh Market district manager The produce section at The Fresh Market features a variety of organic fruits and vegetables. Organic food must pass a 60-page set of rules and regulations about how it should be grown, said Marilyn Swisher, an associate professor of sustainable agriculture at U. Organic food is also free of pesticides and hormones. But with all the extras that The Fresh Market offers, its prices may be higher than college students are used to. "I would consider going once in a while," said Lauren Menke, a microbiology and cell science sophomore who has shopped at The Fresh Market in Pembroke Pines. "If I had the money I'd go (to the new Gainesville store) more often." Wynn questionable for Saturday FOLLOW, from page 1 Sunday -for the most part. The coach did say he would like to see every major conference institute a championship game. "I think that's the right thing to do," Meyer said. "Every conference should have a playoff and the champion of that should go compete for the national championship. Will that happen? I don't know." "I think it's only fair that each league have a championship game," Arkansas coach Houston Nutt said. Meyer expects to have freshman Percy Harvin available for the SEC Championship game. The receiver/running back lost feeling in his neck area and was carted off the field during Saturday's 21-14 win against Florida State. The news regarding tailback DeShawn Wynn is not so promising. Wynn is questionable after dislocating his left shoulder against the Seminoles. He has been bothered by a sore shoulder for much of the past two seasons. "I'm a little concerned," Meyer said. "It's a significant injury, and any time he gets contact on that shoulder it's a problem."

Thompson had only decided two weeks ago to go back to Miami. She didn't go home because her grandmother had moved Instead, she secretly celebrated Thanksgiving at a friend's house. Thompson said the six-hour ride to Miami with her friend would be a "killer," but it would be worth it if it led to a big dinner. "I'm going to eat wherever the hell there's food," she said.

6, ALLIGATOR E MONDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2006 Editorial Minus signs UF should give proposed grade system a chance D aim. UF students can't catch a break. First the administration tries to hike tuition. Then it slashes National Merit scholarships and spending for the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. And let's not forget UF President Bernie Machen's Academic Enhancement Program. Sometimes it seems everyone in Gainesville is out to get you -professors, administrators, bookstores and towing comparies, all conspiring to make your life a little bit harder. And the hits just keep on coming. Next month, the Faculty Senate will decide whether or not to give students "minus" grades -as in A-minus, B-minus and the dreaded C-minus. Faculty Senate Chairwoman Danaya Wright says minus grades would help professors "grade you more accurately." Which is true. Then again, no one wants a C-minus. A solid "C" has a rugged, workmanlike appeal to it -it's not great, but at least it's not terrible. It's middle-of-the-road. Democratic. But a C-minus? That just screams, "I should have gone to Florida State." Predictably, Student Government is against the idea -Student Senate President Josh Weiss says minus grades would hurt students more than they would help them. Maybe he's right. But for once, we're siding with the powers-that-be. Sure, a big, fat minus won't look great on your transcript. But the more steps in UF's grading system, the less arbitrary the grades. It doesn't make sense to jump from a B-plus to an A -or vice versa -over a couple of measly little percentage points. Besides, most of Florida's other public universities already use minuses -and what's the point of having grades at all if they're not comparable from one school to the next? We just hope the Faculty Senate phases the new system in after we're gone. We got a B-plus in Wildlife Issues, and we'll be damned if some punk freshman waltzes in and snatches an A-minus. That's more like it UF's campus preachers could learn thing or two from George Brantley, senior pastor at The Rock of Gainesville church. Last week, Brantley and a few of his parishioners came to the Plaza of the Americas armed with turkey, mashed potatoes. and pumpkin pie -and did more to spread the good word than Joey Johnsen's rants ever have. Of course, you can never go wrong with free food -students would listen to Mussolini if he handed out a few pizzas. But even without the turkey, Brantley's approach would have been a refreshing change of pace. He didn't shout about fornication. He didn't call anyone a sodomite. All he did was serve a few free lunches -showing students the tenets of his faith without "screaming and yelling and shoving it down their throats," as the pastor said. Bravo. Like the rest of UF's campus, the Plaza of the Americas is a public space. Preachers like Johnsen have every right to stand there and ramble on about the evils of pornography, premarital sex -and hell, why not women's suffrage, while they're at it? But if they're actually out to change students' minds, they should ditch the hard sell, lighten up and take a page from Brantley's playbook.the independent florida alligator Tom Durrenberger Anuradha Pandey Leigh Shapiro EDITORIAL BOARD The Alligator encourages comments from readers.

Nancy Pelosi is poised to become speaker of the House of Representatives, moderate Democrats are already distancing themselves from her, lest they be branded "liberal," as she has been. Since 2000, pundits have been yammering that the country is becoming steadily more conservative -but the reality is that Democrats have consistently failed to display a united front for more than two days at a time. Take the recent scuffle over the post of Housemajority leader, for instance. Pelosi supported her longtime ally, Rep. John Murtha, for the position. He was an influential voice against the Iraq war -one of the first members of Congress to call for troop reductions. But instead of rallying behind Pelosi's choice, Democrats in the House elected Rep. Steny Hoyer, a moderate they believed would offset Pelosi's image as a California liberal. Oh, the horror! The Democrats' recurrent inability to present a unanimous and coherent platform to voters is the reason this month's election can't be called a turning of the tide. As an idealist, I'd like to think this country isn't turning into a conservative theocracy. But the Democrats' lack of a united stance on any issue has kept them from making any considerable gains -since-Bush was elected -and it's why their victory this time was hardly that. Despite a gain of six Senate seats, they barely have a majority. It took former Rep. Tom DeLay's numerous ethical lapses, former Rep. Mark Foley's pedophilia and the Jack Abramoff lobbyist nightmare for voters to say they're fed up with Republican leadership. Even though it's been painfully obvious to most of us that the war in Iraq has bred more terrorists than it has killed, it took voters Anuradha Pandey almost 2,700 U.S. deaths to realize Editorial Notebook that Iraq may be a lost cause. letters@aligator.org The only reason the map looks less like a sea of red is because the Republicans did everything possible to screw up. It's as if they thought, "No matter how corrupt we are, the people will never elect those babykilling tree huggers. So why not embezzle a little?" Thankfully, they were wrong -voters expressed their disapproval at the polls. But the election had more to do with Republican failures than Democratic successes. A new era has not begun, as some claimed on Nov. 8th. The sad thing is that many Democrats ran as conservatives, making them Democrats only in name. For example, Jim Webb, who unseated Virginia Sen. George Allen, served in Ronald Reagan's administration as secretary of the Navy. There are dozens of other Democrats who ran on the "traditional values" platform. Let's just hope their definition of traditional values is a far cry from DeLay's. It's already been said by the pundits, but if Democrats want to have a realistic chance at the presidency in 2008, they need to grow a pair -and stop trying to minimize their differences with Republicans. They have two years to win back the trust of voters. They'd better think fast. Anuradha Pandey is a member of the Alligator's editorial board.

14, ALLIGATOR E MONDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2006 UF FOOTBALL Harlvin injury stalls offense; he should play Saturday Andy Apicella / Alligator UF freshman receiver/running back Percy Harvin races down the sideline to score a 41-yard touchdown during the second quarter Saturday. By LOUIS ANASTASIS Alligator Staff Writer lanastasis@alligator.org TALLAHASSEE -Not to make light of the situation, but Percy Harvin's neck wasn't the only thing that went numb after he was crushed on a slant. So did UF's offense. Harvin was an unstoppable force in nearly two quarters of action against Florida State. UF's freshmanreceiver/running back rushed for 86 yards on just four carries. One of those touches was a 41-yard touchdown scamper that put UF up 14-0 in the second quarter. But Harvin was carted off the field just before halftime after receiving a helmet-to-helmet blow from FSU linebacker Buster Davis. The Gators did not score again until 10:22 left in the fourth quarter. Harvin should play in Saturday's Southeastern Conference Championship game against Arkansas. UF will certainly need him. "Whenever he's in there, you kind of hold your breath because he could make a play at any time," receiver Andre Caldwell said. "Then when he got hurt, it changed the offense a little bit." After seeing Harvin's Xrays and MRI results, Meyer expects him to play against the Razorbacks. "All reports are positive," Meyer said on a Sunday teleconference. "He should be able to go for Saturday." "When you lose a dynamic player like that, you saw the lack of big plays in the second half." Dan Mullen UF offensive coordinator Harvin was solely responsible for UF's second touchdown of the game. He started that second quarter scoring drive with a 28-yard run up the right sideline. Tailback DeShawn Wynn lost 1. yard on the following play. Harvin took a direct snap on the ensuing play and sprinted for a 41-yard touchdown. "I don't know if you've noticed, but we kind of need him," Meyer said sarcastically. "The one thing we want to be is the fastest team in college football. You saw Percy make the entire FSU secondary miss (in the first half). (His injury) kind of put us in reverse for a little bit." "He is the fastest player I've ever played with," Wynn said. But Harvin went down on a short slant foute late in the second quarter. He caught the ball amid heavy traffic and collided Lok % i mene too 0k a pek at t hle Holiday Gift Guides.

The freshman lay motionless on the field for a couple of minutes. He eventually began moving his feet, but a stretcher was requested anyway. "It was quiet on the sidelines for a while," receiver Cornelius Ingram said. "It was scary at first because we thought it was something real serious." The Gators huddled on the sidelines for a brief prayer. After the game, Meyer said Harvin felt numbness in the neck area but that the receiver told him he was OK while being carted away. With one minute remaining in the game, Harvin returned to the field, just in time to sing the alma mater with his teammates. Harvin had.been hobbled on and off by a sprained left ankle he suffered against Tennessee. He has not been healthy for an extended stretch since that game. Both .in the Tennessee and FSU games, the Gators struggled after scrapping much of Harvin's game plan. "When you lose a dynamic player like that, you saw the lack of big plays in the second half," offensive coordinator Dan Mullen said. "He's a difference-maker out there on the field."

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2006 E ALLIGATOR, 15 *5 0 S 0 "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" Kicker debate continues after two more Hetland misses HETLAND HAS MADE JUST THREE OF 12 FIELD GOALS THIS SEASON. By DAN TREAT Alligafor Staff Writer dtreat@alligator.org TALLAHASSEE -It may seem unfathomable, but an 11-1 UF team still doesn't have a reliable kicker. Chris Hetland has held the job for the entire season, but he missed two more field goals Saturday -from 38 and 35 yards, respectively -running his Football tally for the season to a putrid 3 for 12. According to Meyer, however, Hetland still hasn't been beat out in practice, and that is the reason he continues to be on the field. "We've just got to keep going," Meyer said. "It's open every week. We open it up every week for a battle, and as long as he's hitting the ball and doesn't get beat out, Chris is going to be the kicker. "He's hitting the ball and he's just barely missing them, but he is missing them. We're going to open (the competition) up again." QUICK HITS: UF's three interceptions tied a season high, as the Gators also picked off three passes against Southern Miss, LSU and Alabama. .Chris Leak passed for over 200 yards for the 32nd time in his career, setting a new UF career record. .Ryan Smith's seventh interception moved him into a tie for second on the school's single-season record list. Keiwan Ratliff holds the record with nine interceptions in 2003. Brewer misses wide-open, last-second three-pointer in upset loss I .H OOPS,frompage 16 4Although four UF players scored in double-digits, including Green's season-high 25 points, the Gators, who averaged nearly 21 assists per game heading into Saturday night's contest, "Copyrighted Material ol a ie only had ie"We didn't play to our offensive identity tonight," Donovan said. "We made a lot of poor decisions down the stretch and had questionable shot Available from Commercial News Providers" seetongu the gba arome. We well as we could have." Still, the Gators managed to force overtime when forward Joakim Noah tipped in the rebound off a missed -Green three-pointer. That tied the score at 70 with 4.2 seconds left. The Gators lost some momentum when Horford, who had been in foul trouble most of the game, committed his fifth early in the overtime period. -Still, UF appeared to have the game locked when Green hit a three to propel the Gators to an 80-77 lead with 1:22 left on the clock. However, some hiccups let the Jayhawks back in Wynn, Harvin missed half FOOT, from page 16 while the UF ground game hit a few bumps. Both Percy Harvin (four carries, 86 yards, one touchdown) and DeShawn Wynn (nine carries, 10 yards) were unavailable for most of the second half with injuries. Harvin had a neck stinger and was carted off. The Gators rushed 15 times for -8 yards in the final two quarters, adding to Meyer's anxiety. "You take DeShawn Wynn and Percy Harvin out, and the run game gets watered down real fast," Meyer said. Kicker Chris Hetland didn't do much to keep Meyer happy either, missing field goals from 35 and 38 yards and running Hetland's success rate to a miserable 3 for 12 this season. In the end, it was Leak who kept Meyer's spirits up. "I try to tell Coach he looks younger and younger every day," Leak said. VOLLEY, from page 16 more tournament teams. The Pacific-10 and the Big Ten also have seven. Still, despite only having two losses, the Gators were seeded ninth, one spot behind Minnesota, who lost seven matches. If the seedings hold up, the two will meet in the Sweet 16, with the winner likely advancing to the game. "To get the game into overtime, we felt like we had all the momentum," Noah said. "In the end, it hurts because it just didn't happen for us. We felt like we had a great chance to win a game where we didn't play our best, and we let it slip away and that's unfortunate." Kansas freshman forward Darrell Arthur sank a couple of clutch free throws to cut the lead to 1. Then, Green committed a turnover with 40.8 seconds remaining, and Kansas' Brandon Rush scored a layup to seal the Gators' defeat. Forward Corey Brewer air-balled a jumper in the lane and Jayhawks guard Russell Robinson hit one more free throw to finalize the score 82-80. UF tried once more to score a late basket, but its luck had run out. Brewer's wide-open three-point attempt with less than a second left clanked off the rim. The Gators won't have much time to lament the loss because they are lined up to play Southern on Tuesday. "We need to go back to the gym, refocus and get back to being us," Noah said. play No. 1 seeded Nebraska. The Cornhuskers knocked UF out of the tournament a year ago.

Sp orts; MONDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2006 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Another tortured victory for 11-win UF UF DOWNS FSU FOR THIRD TIME IN A ROW. By NICK ZACCARDI Alligator Staff Writer nzaccardiealligator.org TALLAHASSEE -UF coach Urban Meyer failed to gain any style points but managed to sprout a few gray hairs instead. The Gators eked out another win against an unranked opponent Saturday, dispatching rival Florida State 21-14 in a game that tested UF's offense as much as it did Meyer's follicles. "You see these gray hairs right here?" Meyer asked, pointing near his temple. "Next year about October, I'll be bald." For now, he'll have to use a little Just for Men and hope the Gators' next two games go a little smoother than Saturday afternoon's tilt at Doak Campbell Stadium.

Cuhninating with the Baker touchdown, Leak bailed out the Gators with a dutch 10-play, 74-yard drive to win his third straight against the Seminoles. "I told Coach on the sideline, 'Just open it up and let me go pick'em apart,'" Leak said. And that's just what he did.

The O'Connell Center will house four rounds of the tournament, giving the Gators (28-2) a chance to reach the Final Four without leaving Gainesville. "We were thrilled. It was as exciting of a reaction as any in all the years (the coaching staff has) been here," UF coach Mary Wise said. "Fortunately, we haven't had the drama of whether we're in or not. I can't imagine what that would be like. I hope we never find out." The Gators have not lost at home since Nov. 21, 2004, against Tennessee. UF will face Florida A&M (21-6) on Thursday. The Gators have never lost in the first round under Wise. The announcement took a moment to sink in for the Gators' players. The team stayed quiet for a few seconds before bursting into cheers.

"We were very fortunate to even have a chance down the stretch," said associate head Basketball coach Donnie Jones in a postgame radio interview, which usually features UF coach Billy Donovan. "Coming back in the second half, we never got in the flow. Give Kansas credit -they did a great job tonight." UF outscored Kansas 39-33 in the second half to force overtime, but any last-minute heroics could not save the Gators from defeat.
