The No. 2 UF football team celebrates after realizing they will play No. 1 Ohio State in the national championship game played in Glendale, Ariz. on Jan. 8.

Gators conclude hectic weekend by finding out they jumped Michigan


By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org

Urban Meyer didn't even have time for his
son on Sunday.
Meyer thought watching Nathan take bat-
ting practice would help take his mind off the
UF-Michigan public-opinion tug of war: So
much for that idea.
"I was on the cell phone the whole time,"
Meyer said.
All the debate, all the suspense and one
heck of a topsy-turvy weekend in college foot-


ball culminated with UF earning a bid to play
Ohio State (12-0) in the national championship
game on Jan. 8 in Glendale, Ariz.
The No. 4 Gators (12-1) leapfrogged
Michigan into the No. 2 spot barely.
The current Bowl Championship Series
rankings have UF ahead of the Wolverines by
one-tenth of a point 0.9445 to 0.9344. The
two teams actually tied in the computer rat-
ings with a score of 0.94. The Gators also held
the slimmest of margins in the BCS' other two
components the Coaches' Poll and Harris
Poll.
On Saturday, No. 3 Southern Cal was upset


in shocking fashion by unranked UCLA 13-
9. The Gators found out during halftime of
the Southeastern Conference Championship
game. UF then impressed by defeating then-
No. 9 Arkansas 38-28.
Now the same coach who has been critical
of the BCS for several weeks has been cata-
pulted into the national championship by that
very system. Two years ago from Sunday, to
the day, Meyer was hired as UF's coach. Now
he will try to lead his players to a national
championship victory 10 years after the Gators

Group protests five-year plan


CLAS Debt Timeline


* FACULTY AND GRAD STU-
DENTS CONFRONT MACHEN.
By ELIZABETH HILLAKER
Alligator Writer
ehillaker@alligator.org
About 30 UF students and fac-
ulty members attended Friday's
Board of Trustees meeting, where
they protested the administration's
plan to lift the College of Liberal
Arts and Sciences out of debt.
Wearing identical orange stick-
ers to show their solidarity, a group
of about 15 crowded around UF
President. Bernie Machen before
the meeting to air their concerns
about CLAS and the five-year plan
to eliminate the college's $4 million
deficit. The plan, which has been in
place since September, will freeze
hiring and cut money for depart-
ments like English and religion
while boosting funds for depart-
ments like chemistry and zoology.
One English professor continu-
ally pressed Machen to elicit from
CLAS Dean Neil Sullivan a written


explanation for the recent dismissal
of English Chairman John Leavey.
Machen promised that Sullivan
would give such an explanation.
The group lamented the lack of
support for graduate students and
warned that some faculty members
are seeking jobs elsewhere.
During the meeting, the trust-
ees endorsed Machen's Academic
Enhancement Program, which will
charge incoming UF students an
additional
UF $1,000
: each year
starting
next Fall. English graduate student-
Angelique Nixon told the board that
the money might not be enough to
heal the damage.
"We are worried because faculty
and student morale is at an all-time
low," Nixon said. "We are not sure
how departments in CLAS will
be able to recruit and compete for
outstanding faculty ... even with
these new funds from the Academic
Enhancement Program, which may
arrive too late to repair the damage
already done."


Faculty Senate Chairwoman
Danaya Wright, who is a member of
the board, told trustees that faculty
members and graduate students
feel like the board doesn't know the
magnitude of discontent at the uni-
versity. She said the faculty wants
more communication with the up-
per administration.
SThe administration knew about
the debt problem for three years,
she added, so some faculty mem-
bers felt it rushed the college to
have a plan in place within a few
months this summer.
Machen continued to insist
the budget crisis is the college's
problem and the plan will stay in
place until the faculty or the stu-
dents devise a new plan. Faculty
members then pointed to the newly
formed Faculty Finance Advisory
Committee in CLAS,-which is gath-
ering data for a new plan.
Still, Machen said he is willing
to increase communication between
the administration and CLAS fac-
ulty.
"This is not a big problem to fix,"
he said of the communication gap.

UF ADMINISTRATION

UF nears financial, administrative changes at meeting


Board of Trustees approves fee


New position to aid in Machen's duties


By ELIZABETH HILLAKER
Alligator Writer
ehillaker@alligator.org

The plan to raise student fees at UF
by $1,000 each year, approved Friday
by the university's Board of Trustees,
now awaits the endorsement of
Florida legislators.
UF President Bernie Machen
proposed the charge, dubbed the
Academic Enhancement Program, to
hire 200 tenure-track faculty members
and 100 more advisers. Next Fall's
freshman class will be the first to pay
the fee if it is passed.
The Board of Governors, which
oversees the State University System,
approved the proposal last month. To
take effect, the Legislature must pass
it, and the governor must sign it into
law.
The trustees will push hard for
lawmakers to pass the bill this Spring.


At Friday's meeting, they urged stu-
dents, faculty, alumni and UF lobby-
ists to press their representatives.
"If there was ever a time to mo-
bilize the Gator Nation, this is it,"
trustee Manny Fernandez said.
The trustees, who seemed anx-
ious to get on the road to Atlanta
for the Southeastern Conference
Championship game, quickly ap-
proved other measures, including
increases in student fees that totaled
$1.67 per credit hour. That money
will go toward the Regional Transit
System, student health services and
Student Government's coffers.
After the meeting, UF trustee
Joelen Merkel donned a bright orange
Gators jacket covered with UF para-
phernalia and headed down the stairs
of Emerson Alumni Hall.
The board will discuss UF's
long-term strategy at a retreat in
Jacksonville, Feb. 12 through Feb. 13.


By ELIZABETH HILLAKER
Alligator Writer
ehillaker@alligator.org

UF President Bernie Machen
has appointed a new administra-
tor to take over some of his re-
sponsibilities and handle univer-
sity affairs while he is traveling.
Machen made the announce-
ment at the university trustees'
meeting Friday. The new position,
senior vice president for admin-
istrative affairs, will be filled by
Kyle Cavanaugh, the current vice
president for human resources.
- Cavanaugh will take Machen's
place in joint meetings with sev-
eral of the university's vice presi-
dents in nonacademic areas, such
as legal counsel and finance.
"Originally they reported
to me, and that's the problem,"


Machen said.
Cavanaugh will report directly
to Machen after meeting with
other administrators. Machen said
relief from such duties will free
up time. Machen will still keep
abreast of issues at UF by meeting
with vice presidents individually.
Machen said he is increas-
ingly on the road lobbying
for student recruits in China or
for money in Tallahassee so a
leader needs to be in Tigert Hall if
something comes up.
He noted that last. summer,
when the College of Liberal Arts
and Sciences' looming debt be-
came apparent, he was in Idaho
fly-fishing sans BlackBerry.
Cavanaugh, who came to UF
from the University of Texas at
Austin, was instrumental in get-
ting domestic-partner benefits for


UF faculty and staff and in bring-
ing health care to graduate stu-
dents during his year-and-a-half
tenure at UF He will continue to
head the human'resources branch
until Machen finds a replacement.
Machen also announced that
UF will soon have a chief financial
officer who will be in charge of
tracking the university's $3.7 bil-
lion budget, down to. the depart-
ment level.
Machen said after the meeting
that the board had been request-
ing a CFO because it was unsat-
isfied with the oversight of the
university's money.
He said the CLAS debt was a
factor in the position's creation,
but wasn't the deciding factor. The
search for a CFO will be national,
and Machen said he would like
someone in place by July.

Poinsettias on sale this week


By KRISTIN NORTON
Alligator Contributing Writer

Shades of pink, red and mauve will light up the
morning before the sun has a chance to peep over
the horizon. At 7 a.m. Tuesday, before the doors even
open, vendors will wait in their cars until they can get
a glimpse of the brilliant colors.
This year's Poinsettia Variety Trial Field Days,
hosted by UF's Department of Environmental
Horticulture, will display 102 varieties of poinset-
tias at the greenhouses behind Fifield Hall. Industry
members and growers attend the field day Tuesday,
but the department is opening its doors to the public
on Thursday.
Students in the Environmental Horticulture Club
prepared 1,250 6-inchpots and 100 8-inch pots for the
exhibit. They will offer 20 to 25 varieties of poinsettias
for the public during the consumer-day sale.
"It's equivalent to a beauty pageant," said Carolyn
Bartuska, a senior biologist in the department.
Prices range from $8 for red, 6-inch plants to $15 or
$20 for specialty varieties.
The money from the sale will go toward the club's
seven- to 10-day international study trip in the Spring.
Last year the cub raised $20,000 for their trip to Costa
Rica, and this year they are going to France.
"It was a great experience to meet other kids in the
same field," said horticulture senior Carson Winn.


The field day and the sale are also important expe-
riences for the students in the club.
"We want the students to see the variability in the
crops that we grow and just the total amount of plants
that is out there," Bartuska said.
Although working with customers at the field day
and the sale is more relaxing than working with grow-
ers, consumers play an important role, Bartuska said.
They can fill out surveys that gauge the public's
favorite varieties of poinsettia, which in the past have
differed from what growers thought.
On "It was a real eye-opener to us,"
Camapss Bartuska said.
A consumer favorite in past years has
been the multicolored Monet Twilight,-but burgundy
plants are becoming more popular. The.variety of col-
ors always amazes consumers, Bartuska said.
"When people walk in and see all the colors, they
say, 'You must love your job,'" Bartuska said.
When the field days started nine years ago, only
growers were permitted to attend. They now come to
learn about new varieties, height control and experi-
ments, but they also want to learn how to ease the dif-
ficult growing process.
UF receives rooted cuttings of poinsettias from
breeders and must plant them within the first week of
the Fall semester to be ready by December, Boldt said.
"No one wants their flower to come the day after
Christmas," Bartuska said.

Quran ban?

U.S. alienates Muslim

citizens at its peril
W hen the 110th Congress is sworn in next month,
Rep.-elect Keith Ellison intends to recite his oath
S of office with one hand on the Quran. That's right
- Ellison's a Muslim, the first ever elected to the House of
Representatives. Sadly, that makes him a controversial guy.
In Ellison's home state of Minnesota and across the coun-
try, the religious right is up in arms over his decision not to
use a Christian Bible during the induction ceremony.
The American Family Association has even lobbied
Congress to prohibit the use of the Quran, the Torah and oth-
er non-Christian books for swearing in new representatives.
Needless to say, that's ridiculous. Forcing a Muslim or
anyone, for that matter to swear an oath with his hand on
the Bible would be a clear violation of the First Amendment,
which bars Congress from establishing a state religion.
But that's not the worst part. The worst' part is that it
could transform the "clash of civilizations" between the West
and the world's 1.4 billion Muslims from a myth into a real-
ity. And no one wants that no one with a double-digit IQ,
anyway.
Even the president is careful to note that our wars in, on
and around Muslim countries aren't wars on Islam itself. But
when columnists suggest that Ellison's choice of scripture
"undermines American civilization," for example, the mes-
sage is clear Muslims aren't welcome in America.
That's a shame, because millions of them already live
here. They pay taxes, watch "CSI," get fat and drive giant
cars, just like everyone else. They don't riot, like some French
Muslims. They don't join radical mosques, like some teenag-
ers in London.
In fact, they're pretty well integrated into American so-
ciety which is why, unlike many European countries, the
United States has no "Muslim problem" to speak of.
Sure, we have our share of bigots. Keith Ellison can attest
to that. And yes, the government is endlessly, frantically, ob-
sessively paranoid about another Sept. 11, 2001. But our most
frightening nightmare scenarios revolve around attacks from
without not from within.
That's what separates us from, say, France. Or Great
Britain. Or the Netherlands. We worry about Osama bin
Laden, but they worry about the guy across the street and
with good reason. The guy across the street burs cars, blows
up trains and assassinates movie directors.
Of course, the majority of European Muslims are decent,
law-abiding citizens and no threat to anyone. But decades of
social and economic exclusion have created an embittered,
radical minority that endangers everyone including mod-
erate Muslims.
In 2004, for example, France banned Islamic head scarves
in public schools, and the resulting outcry contributed to
riots in Paris' immigrant neighborhoods later that year.
Western societies pay a steep price for alienating their.
Muslim citizens.
Luckily, we're not quite there yet. But every time the
president jails a Muslim without charges, every time cops or

Helping the homeless demands action
In his Friday letter, Edward Miller ar-
gued that the abundance of money poured
into local businesses by UF students should
counteract the problem of homeless people in
Gainesville. I guess the homeless should be
thankful they're homeless in such a wealthy
city.
The fact is, a very small portion of the
money you spend in local stores directly
benefits the homeless. That's why the com-


passionate approach to helping people that
David Reznik and others advocate is appro-
priate.
It's easy to justify our selfishness we're
always busy, we're students, we have dead-
lines. But ignorance of the pain that persists
in our communities is just an excuse to con-
tinue living only for ourselves, instead of liv-
ing as fellow members of an injured society.
Daniel Gualtieri

No good reason for Leavey's dismissal
On her personal Web site
(www.janiefouke.com), UF Provost Janie
Fouke prominently displays an admirable
quote: "Every individual should be treated
with dignity all the time." Unfortunately, over
the past several months, Fouke has had diffi-
culty putting this maxim into action.
As an English graduate student, I've been
lucky for the past several years to enjoy dedi-
cated leadership on the part of my department


chair, John Leavey. On Thursday, he was un-
ceremoniously dismissed from this leadership
position with no explanation by the adminis-
tration.
But as far as I can tell, Leavey's only fail-
ure was his dissent to the five-year plan's
unwieldy hiring freeze, its lack of faculty
involvement and its dramatic weakening of
academic excellence at UF

STUDENT LIFE

After hiatus, Heathy Gators club gears up for Spring


By WHITNEYSESSA
Alligator Contributing Writer
Healthy Gators is getting back
into shape for Spring semester.
After remaining inactive for the
past year, the student-run organiza-
tion will start back up in the Spring
with a new executive board ready to
put new ideas into action.
"I'm hoping to -establish the
group as a lasting student organi-
zation that will continue to ben-
efit students long after I leave," said
Tom Dudash, the organization's
president.
Dudash, a history junior, said the
group's main goal is to promote a


healthy lifestyle-for students at UF
by focusing on physical and mental
health.
For the main Spring event, the
organization is planning a double-
elimination beach volleyball tourna-
ment, he said.
Students will be able to compete
for prizes such as gym member-
ships, gift certificates and health
supplements.
Healthy Gators will also keep
students active with bowling, ulti-
mate Frisbee, basketball, softball,
cycling, runs across campus and
other sports events, he said.
"If you're in shape, you're going
to live longer and enjoy life more,"


"If you're in shape, you're
going to live longer and
enjoy life more."
Bobby Casey
Healthy Gators treasurer

said Treasurer Bobby Casey, a his-
tory junior.
Another project that Healthy
Gators has in the works is creating
a student cookbook with recipes for
healthy home cooking. Once the
cookbook is completed, Healthy
Gators plans to host a cookout using
recipes from the book, Dudash said.
One of his main goals as presi-


dent, he said, is to restructure the
group so that it can operate on its
own. He also wants to increase ac-
tive membership and create new
positions that will boost member
involvement.
The organization, which is open
to all UF students, plans to meet
once a month, he said. It will host
speakers, such as nutritionists and
other health experts, who will dis-
cuss topics such as healthy diets and
exercise programs.
A few of the organization's past
activities have included a workout
buddy program, a midnight ice
cream social for students pulling all-
nighters, and a Spring Break forum


that addressed topics such as safe
tanning, safe sex and how to avoid
hangovers.
Established in January of 2004,
the organization became dormant
after the members of the executive
board graduated and moved on to
graduate school.
Although this has been a setback,
the organization's leaders are excit-
ed to get back on its feet and attract
new members, Dudash said.
"The group is easygoing, with
virtually .no requirements for
membership," he said. "Everybody
wants to be healthy, and this group
will give you the tools to do that in a
fun and relaxing environment."

Ben & Jerry's makes transition to cage-free hens

By MELISSA SMALL '
Alligator Contributing Writer -

Scrambled, fried or poached. Which way would you prefer
your eggs?
Most people have preferences concerning the preparation of
their eggs. But when it comes to how those eggs are produced
and prepared in processed foods, they aren't always aware of
the choices.
"Consumers too often aren't aware of where '
their food comes from."
Geoffrey Dah l.'
UF animal sciences professor


Ben & Jerry's recently announced that after a four-year tran-
sition phase, they will be the first national food manufacturer
to use certified, humane cage-free methods to raise their egg-
laying hens.
"Consumers too often aren't aware of where their food
comes from," said UF animal sciences professor Geoffrey
Dahl.
The Certified Humane Raised & Handled program is
administered by the independent, nonprofit organization
Humane Farm Animal Care.
Companies like Ben & Jerry's that display the organization's
certification label must allow animals to engage in their natu-
ral behaviors and be raised with sufficient space and shelter
- among other standards, according to the organization's Web
site.
And animal products are checked for quality and safety,
Dahl said.
A certificate from the Humane Farm Animal Care organiza-
tion can set companies apart from their competition.
"(The certification) is giving the appearance that other
animal products aren't produced in a humane fashion," Dahl
said.
The nutritional value of the products with the certified
humane cage-free eggs should not be altered. An alteration in
taste would only be for the better, Dahl said.
Elyssa Winston, an employee at Ben & Jerry's on University
Avenue, believes the ice cream served there is better than the
competition.
"I think it tastes better," Winston said.


Andrew Stanfill / Alligator
Customers at Ben & Jerry's on West University Avenue reach out for their ice cream Sunday evening. The chain will
begin the transition to eggs produced by cage-free hens.


The employees at Ben & Jerry's are informed by their
managers about the products and missions of the company.
Recently, eggs have been added as an ingredient to cookie and
brownie batter. To prevent salmonella, they are no longer al-
lowed to sell the batter raw, Winston said.
The announcement allows an opportunity for suppliers to
produce certified, humane cage-free eggs. The suppliers pro-
ducing eggs for Ben & Jerry's should be able to gain a premium
for their product, Dahl said.
Eggs with the certified humane certification are not just


used in Ben & Jerry's ice cream. They are available for purchase
at Publix Super Markets and Ward's Super Market.
The certification is gaining more recognition as the market
grows. This trend has the potential to become similar to the
growth of organic products, said philosophy professor Richard
Haynes, who specializes in animal welfare ethics.
Ben & Jerry's can afford to use certified, humane cage-free
eggs. The new certification provides a way to differentiate their
high-end product in the market, Dahl said.
"(Ben & Jerry's) is not your ramen noodles," Dahl said.

Sloppy defending champs handled by Seminoles


By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
jmarina@alligator.org

TALLAHASSEE While the
Gators football team was rejoicing
the possibility of becoming UF's
new national champions, UF's cur-
rent national champions gasped for


air in a sea of garnet and gold.
Thousands of Seminoles fans
rushed the court, waving their
pointer fingers in the air after the
No. 4 UF men's basketball team
(7-2) fell to Florida State (5-2) 70-66
on Sunday night at the Donald L.
Tucker Center.


It was the first time FSU defeat-
ed a ranked UF team in Tallahassee
since Dec 1, 1989, when the No.
14 Seminoles downed the No. 19
Gators 104-86.
Point guard Taurean Green, who
led the team with 21 points, tried to
take the game-winning shot with

7 seconds left, but his three-point
attempt was blocked by FSU guard
Toney Douglas.
"We didn't do a very good
job executing coming down the
stretch," Donovan said. "I just
thought the shot that he took need-
ed to be a little bit better or a drive
to the basket. I think that anytime at
the end of the game one play can be
magnified on what Taurean should
or shouldn't have done, but that
was a product of being in that situa-
tion of what had happened over the
previous 32-minute period."
UF trailed for practically the
whole game. FSU got their first
lead when Jason Rich drove around
Walter Hodge and made a layup to
give the Seminoles a 12-10 advan-
tage in the first several minutes.
The win redeemed FSU from
back-to-back losses to No. 2
Pittsburgh and No. 11 Wisconsin.
"Anytime you get a non-confer-
ence win against an outstanding
team like the University of Florida,"
FSU coach Leonard Hamilton said,
"it can't do anything but help
you."
UF trailed by as much as 15
points with 8:43 left in the game.
Then the Gators went on a 23-10
run to put them within 2 points
with 54 seconds left.
"The way we were playing at
the end of the game," Green said,
"we should have been playing like
that the whole game."
But the damage was already
done, and UF could not rebound
from the large deficit.

"That hole that we dug our-
selves in, that was a deep hole,"
Green said. "We shouldn't have
even been in that hole in the first
place."
In the first half, FSU held Joakim
Noah to 2 points and two rebounds
and Al Horford to 2 points and one
rebound.
Donovan benched Noah and
Horford for a period in the second
half because he was not happy with
their production.
"That hole we dug our-
selves in, that was a deep
hole."
Taurean Green
UF point guard

"I sat some of our older guys
and played some of our younger
guys and let them spectate for a
little bit," Donovan said. "And then
for whatever reason, we try to turn
it on at the end and it wasn't good
enough."
This was the first game in the
past three weeks that UF had some
time to prepare for.
The Gators practiced three days
prior to their Tallahassee trip, but
if the players want to win games,
practice alone will not be enough.
"They need to, in my opinion,
make a conscious decision of what
physical commitment they are
going to make," Donovan said. "I
think it starts with our older guys.
Hopefully they will make the com-
mitment that is necessary."

Carr criticizes Meyer

FOLLOW, from page 1


won their first and only.
"I'm spoiled," freshman receiver Percy Harvin said.
The coach gathered his players Sunday night into a media lounge
located in the Swamp to watch Fox's BCS Selection Show. Meyer had
been noncommittal to his players throughout the day about whether
UF would jump Michigan.
"I was on the phone probably every 6 1/2 minutes," he said. "I
was talking to (UF athletics director) Jeremy (Foley) and I was driv-
ing myself crazy. But I told my players the same thing I told him: I
think it looks good, but just hang in there."
The Coaches' Poll was released early during the day, giving the,
Gators a clue about their fate. But many of the players weren't sure
until they saw the official announcement.
During a commercial break of the selection show, sports informa-
tion director Steve McClain advised the team they would soon be
named Ohio State's opponent. Players began whispering. Receiver
David Nelson slapped his knees in agitation.
Then, wearing mostly SEC Championship gear, players burst into
a frenzy when the announcement was made. Tight end Tate Casey
gave his teammates a round of hugs. A stoic Meyer eventually placed
his hand behind his head so linebacker Brandon Siler could give him
a no-look high-five.
The television broadcast was delayed. So when the players
watched their own reaction on TV and saw Meyer's stem demeanor
during the announcement, they broke into a group chuckle. The
coach had celebrated his SEC Championship late Saturday night by
watching some ESPN and taking a three-hour nap on his couch.
FOX later showed how narrowly the Gators surpassed Michigan
and the Gators fell silent. Siler gripped the shoulder of punter Eric
Wilbur and offered a, "Wow how fortunate," kind of expression.
"I don't think it's hit me, actually," Siler said afterward. "I'm
pretty sure when I get away from everybody and walk to my car, I'm
going to scream as loud as I can."
"This is unimaginable," receiver Andre Caldwell said. "That's
stuff I was dreaming about since I was a kid even as a grown-
up.
At the end of the day, there were too many storylines to count.
Meyer, a native of Ashtabula, Ohio, will play against the school
where he was a football graduate assistant and eventually left with a
master's degree in sports administration. The SEC landed its first na-
tional championship game participant since Louisiana State in 2003.
Meanwhile, Michigan is left wading in a puddle of crushed sour
grapes. The Wolverines won't get their rematch with Ohio State.
Michigan coach Lloyd Carr, in anticipation of the final BCS stand-
ings, called Meyer's recent comments against a rematch "inappropri-
ate."
"I have great respect for him, but I don't get it," Meyer said. "I
didn't lobby I was asked a question and I answered how I felt."

McCray leads Gators to victory, berth in Sweet 16


* THE JUNIOR HAD 22 KILLS
AGAINST ARIZONA STATE.


By JOSH ARMSTRONG
Alligator Writer
jarmstrong@alligator.org

Arizona State didn't get to see opposite
hitter Amber McCray on Thursday, but by
Friday night they had seen enough.
The junior had 22 kills and only three
errors on .442 hitting as the No. 9-seeded
UF volleyball team (30-2) defeated the Sun
Devils 3-1 to advance to the Sweet 16.
"We had a lot of trouble trying to contain
McCray," ASU coach Brad Saindon said.
"We didn't see her last night. She was a
surprise."
McCray sat out UF's first-round match
against Florida A&M to rest a nagging'sore
left shoulder. Though she merely described
her condition as "good," her swings looked
quicker and more powerful than in other
matches since suffering the injury.
While UF coach Mary Wise said she didn't
try to catch ASU off-guard by sitting McCray,
she agrees it was a factor in the win.
"I can appreciate that watching a player
hit on tape and seeing them live is complete-
ly different," Wise said. "Much of this win
has to go to Stefanie Douglas (who played in
McCray's stead Thursday)."
UF's 30-17 game-one win seemed to fore-
tell a Gators' sweep, as ASU accumulated a
.116 hitting percentage.
Then, the Sun Devils shored up their of-
fensive woes and led 26-20 in game two, but
UF stormed back with a 10-1 run to take the
game 30-27.
ASU's main downfall was serving. It
committed five of its 12 service errors in


_.._ ------------- _


game two, losing points that could have
dosed out the Gators.
UF again fell behind in game three but
was unable to muster up a comeback, losing
30-26. The Gators responded by never losing
the lead in game four to win 30-23.
Although UF trailed for much of the
match, junior outside hitter Marcie Hampton
said any kind of win will do.
"We're still alive, and that's what counts,"
she said.
Senior defensive specialist Rhian Davis
had a career-high 22 digs.
Kelsey Bowers had 11 total blocks in-
cluding 10 block assists and added nine
kills on .444 hitting. She also set new UF re-
cords for total blocks (174) and block assists
(152) by a sophomore.
JuniormiddleblockerKisyaKillingsworth
had 13 kills and Hampton had 15 kills.
Junior setter Angie McGinnis nearly had
her third triple-double of the season with
eight kills, 53 assists and 18 digs.
"(ASU's) setter doesn't tip too often, so
they don't get to see it much in practice,"
McGinnis said. "So I had a lot of chances to
(get kills) and that opened up our hitters as
well."
The Gators may have the muggy
Gainesville climate to thank for some of
ASU's 24 attack errors.
"It's the humidity," Saindon said. "The
air's a little thicker, and the ball moves a little
(different) than out west."
UF moves on to face No. 8 seed Minnesota
(25-7) on Fridayin Gainesville.
Top-seeded Nebraska (29-1) and No. 16
seed San Diego (26-5) will also play Friday
in the Gainesville regionals. Nebraska elimi-
nated UF in the regional finals last year.
The winner of each match will play
Saturday for a Final Four berth.

Leak overcomes roller coaster game for first SEC title


By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanstasis@alligator.org


ATLANTA Go ahead, Chris take a
sigh of relief.
The lows have merged into highs.
The pain has flushed into joy.
Anxiety has been replaced by consolation.
Finally, the two-ton anvil has been taken off
the shoulders of UF starting quarterback Chris
Leak. Despite throwing two crucial intercep-
tions and fumbling the ball in the second half,
Leak captured the Southeastern Conference
Championship he has so desperately crusaded
for since arriving to Gainesville.
"It's indescribable," Leak said. "I can't de-
scribe the emotions. High emotions are every-
where. Ijust want to thank my teammates and
coaches. I'm just so proud of these guys."
The numbers, for once, don't tell the story.
The senior, who has done plenty in the sta-
tistics department since 2003, truly quarter-
backed his team to the title.
Leak finished just 16 of 30 for 189 yards,
one touchdown and two interceptions. But
he broke Danny Wuerffel's school record for
career passing yardage. Leak's 37-yard touch-
down pass to Percy Harvin during the second
quarter gave him 10,895 yards to Wuerffel's
10,875. Leak now has 11,000 yards.
It was his ability to rebound from what
started like a crushing third-quarter collapse
that allowed him to capture the title.
"I just had to stay focused," Leak said.
"You have to have a short memory with those
things. We just made the plays when they
needed to be made."
The knock on Leak throughout his career
has been his inability to bag the big one.
During his freshman season, Leak proclaimed
he would stay single until UF won a national
championship. He eventually fell short on that


vow, but now has that shot at the coveted title
game.
"It's just such a great feeling," Leak
said Sunday. "It's a very exciting time
for the Gators. I'm just real thankful the
Lord has put us in a position to do this,'

"He proved he's a great quar/
terback. He proved he's a great
leader. He's a championnow."
Andrew Caldwell
UF wide receiver


It almost didn't happen this way. Many of
UF's players found out at halftime that No. 2
Southern Cal had been upset by UCLA 13-9.
But Leak and Co. never rode that surge of
adrenaline into the third quarter.
Up 17-7, the Gators received the ball first
and then ... disaster. Arkansas dropped back
into zone coverage and an unsuspecting Leak
threw the ball right to linebacker Weston
Dacus, who was guarding the middle of the
field. Seven plays later, Arkansas tailback
Darren McFadden completed a 2-yard touch-
down pass to Felix Jones. Then, two drives
later, it happened again.
Leak began running an option play to the
left, though he had Harvin as a shovel-pass
option to the right. But instead of continuing
to the left, Leak forced an ill-advised shovel
to his freshman. Right end Antwain Robinson
one-armed an interception and chugged for a
40-yard touchdown. The Razorbacks led 21-17
and Coach Urban Meyer pulled Leak aside for
a quick discussion.
"I wasn't patting him on the back," Meyer
said. "I was just coaching him and directing
him. We just coached him. There was no group
hug or anything."
But Leak eventually gathered his com-

UF suffers key injuries


By DAN TREAT

dtreat@alligator.org

ATLANTA The injury bug
that seems to have bit UF so many
times this year struck again in
various forms in the Southeastern
Conference Championship game
against Arkansas on Saturday
night.
The worst injury befell se-
nior defensive lineman Ray
McDonald, who tore a ligament
in his right elbow during the first
half and didn't return.
He was X-rayed during the
game and is probable for the
national championship, Urban
Meyer said Sunday.
"Hopefully, I'll be fine for the
bowl game," McDonald said after
the game.
Strong safety Tony Joiner spent
several minutes on the ground af-
ter a group tackle of Razorbacks
tailback Darren McFadden on
Arkansas' second offensive series
and didn't return to the game.
Wide receiver Andre Caldwell
walked off limping early in the
game and retreated to the locker
rgom, but he quickly re-emerged


and played the remainder of the
game.
Offensive lineman Drew Miller
was hurt on UF's very first offen-
sive play, but he returned on the
next series.


Football


Cornerback Ryan
Smith was treated
on the field for a
possible hamstring
injury in the first
half, but returned


on the Gators' next defensive
series.
Smith also went down after
intercepting a pass late in the
fourth quarter that was negated
by a pass interference penalty but
missed just a single play.
Linebacker Brandon Siler left
the field with 3:29 remaining
in the fourth quarter. He was
replaced by freshman Brandon
Spikes.

BLOCK PARTY: The Gators es-
tablished a school record when
freshman Jarred Fayson blocked
a Jacob Skinner punt in the sec-
ond quarter. It was UF's eighth
blocked kick of the season, break-
ing a school record that had been
standing since 1995.


Lochte appearance sparks UF


EBOWDEN LEADS WOMEN'S BASKET-
BALL AGAINST SOUTH ALABAMA.

By MIKE MCCALL
Alligator Writer

It's Deceniber now, and everyone knows
that's Rudolf's time of year.
The UF swimming and diving team wrapped
up its fall schedule at the U.S. Open in West
Lafayette, Ind., and at the Texas Invitational in
Austin this weekend the brightest spot for the
Gators was the performance of freshman Roland
Rudolf.
Rudolf, a native of Budapest, Hungary, turned
in UF's top two finishes at the Open winning
the 200-meter backstroke event on Thursday and
earning eighth place in the 100 back on Friday.
"Roland Rudolf was the bright spot of the day
for us on Thursday," Coach Gregg Troy said. "He
really swam a great a race. It was impressive to
see the way he went out and raced against a great
field."
Rudolf's 200 back victory was the Gators'
second consecutive win in the event in 2005,
standout Ryan Lochte won it.
Lochte, the former UF star, also had a success-
ful Open this year winning the 100 back over
Rudolf on Friday.
"A lot of our younger guys really look up to
Ryan Lochte, and it was good to see him perform
so well," Troy said.
For the women, sophomore Laurabeth
Guenthner had the top performance ninth in
the 800-meter freestyle and 24th in the 400 free.
"Overall, this trip helped us figure out where
we're at as a team." Troy said. "Its great to be able
to see what we're looking at for next semester."
The Gators had won the university team title
at the U.S. Open for the last five years, but placed


second this weekend losing to Auburn 266 to
427.
UF also sent swimmers to compete in the.
Texas Invitational, where the men finished 10th
out of 11 teams and the wom-
en placed 13th out of 16.
Sophomore Rex Tullius
turned in the top performance
for the Gators, finishing fifth
in the 200-yard back event.
The best women's fin-
ish belonged to freshman
Elizabeth Goldson 16th in
Rudolf the 1,650 free.
The No. 11 men's team (2-4, 1-1 Southeastern
Conference) and ninth-ranked women (4-1, 2-0
SEC) will enjoy a break before returning to ac-
tion on Jan. 12, when they host Virginia in the
O'Connell Center at 7 p.m.

BOWDEN PROPELS UF WOMEN'S BASKETBALL:
Rebounds have plagued UF all season long, and
apparently, Depree Bowden is sick of it.
Bowden is listed as a guard, but her box score
was more like that of a center on Friday night
against South Alabama. She gobbled up a career-
high 15 rebounds to go along with 10 points, four
steals and one block, helping the Gators (4-4) to a
62-50 victory against the Jaguars. It was her first
career double-double.
"Thank goodness for Depree Bowden," UF
coach Carolyn Peck said. "In the first half it
looked like she was the only one going to the of-
fensive boards. That's what really kept us in the
ball game."
Bowden's intensity must've been contagious.
UF had just a 2-point halftime lead (31-29) and
even trailed by 6 (14-8) at the 12:41 mark in the
first half, but that lead quickly expanded.

Special teams, trick plays, UCLA win spark Gators


By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
nzaccardi@alligator.org

ATLANTA As the surprising
news came up at halftime, UF coach
Urban Meyer had one thing to say
to his team.
"Coach told us to get ready to
play for something," tight end Tate
Casey said.
Indeed, the Gators' 38-28 win
againstArkansas inthe Southeastern
Conference Championship vaulted
them into playing for a little some-
thing called the national champion-
ship.
"What a game. What a
tremendous atmosphere.
There were a bunch of
first-rounders on that field
playing."
Urban Meyer
UF football coach


Coupled with Southern Cal's
stunning loss at UCLA, UF's first
SEC title since 2000 pits them
against No. 1 Ohio State in the Bowl
Championship Series title game,
The highlights of Saturday night
played out in timeline fashion.
Before No. 2 UF (12-1, 7-1 SEC)
sealed the game on an end-around
pass from Andre Caldwell to Tate
Casey, the two games provided
one excellent couch-potato channel-
changing experience.
As the Gators worked to take a
17-7 lead into the half, the public
address announcer at the Georgia
Dome updated the split crowd with
scores from the USC-UCLA game.
Some players claimed they didn't
know the USC final at halftime,
but others said the news fluttered
through parts of the locker room.
That's when Meyer took control.


O G
aw -." gm .00MNM __4b _o


"It was firing through the locker
room pretty quick," Meyer said. "I
heard about it and was kind of like,
'Let's worry about what we have to
worry about.'"
Fans erupted prior to the start of
the second half when the scoreboard
displayed the 13-9 upset special.
From there, the Gators battled
for their championship lives -both


conference and national.
It started out terribly for the
Gators, as the Arkansas Razorbacks
scored two touchdowns to take a
21-17 lead.
Quarterback Chris Leak (16 of 30
for 189 yards and one touchdown)
threw two interceptions on UF's
first three drives.
"Chris has been in through the


wringer and we had great confi-
dence," Meyer said. "We just tried to
coach him through two bad series."
Then UF took the momentum
back late in the third quarter.
First, the Gators faked a
punt with wide receiver Jemalle
Cornelius taking a handoff from
punter Eric Wilbur 17 yards for a
first down.


Four plays later, Meyer thought
about trying to defy. conventional
wisdom again.
At first, he wanted to attempt
a conversion on a fourth-and-one
from the UF 41.
But after calling a timeout to
weigh the decision, co-defensive co-
ordinator Greg Mattison convinced
Meyer otherwise.
"The comment over the headset
was Greg Mattison saying, It's
early,'" Meyer said. "He jtst kept
saying, 'It's early. Let's play some
great defense.'"
The move paid off as Wilbur's
54-yard punt ended up in the hands
of a Gators player.
Freshman Wondy Pierre-Louis
recovered a fumble by Arkansas
returned Reggie Fish in -the end
zone for a gimme score to regain
the lead.
UF scored on its next offensive
play, a 67-yard run by Percy Harvin,
with 14:22 left in the game.
Harvin led the Gators with six
carries for 105 yards and added five
catches for 62 yards, earning game
MVP honors.
A week after being carted off
the field with a neck stinger against
Florida State, Harvin returned with
his best performance of the season.
"The coaches told us that
Arkansas was going to be in man-
to-man coverage," Harvin said.
"They challenged us to make some
big plays."
Though Arkansas scored again
to cut the lead to 31-28, Caldwell
sealed it on the pass to Casey with
9:04 remaining.
UF fended off late comeback
attempts with interceptions from
Ryan Smith and Reggie Nelson.
"What a stage," Meyer said.
"What a game. What a tremendous
atmosphere. There were a bunch
of first-rounders on that field play-
ing."


UF's national title bid not an accident



ATLANTA-
s it destiny?
SIt's year two for UF coach Urban
eyer, who has had unprecedented
success in his second year at all of his head
coaching stops.
It's the fourth year for senior quarter-
back Chris Leak, who came to UF in 2003
vowing to win a national title.
It's the final year for 21 seniors who
have experienced the fall of the Gators'
SEC dynasty and more emotional turmoil
than they bargained for.
And come Jan. 8, they'll all be play-
ing for college football's biggest prize
- a national championship. And how can
anyone truly be surprised?
This is a team that has caught, and
taken advantage of, seemingly every
break it needed on a difficult run through
the nation's toughest schedule.
There was the roughing-the-passer
penalty on Tennessee's J.T. Mapu that
negated a touchdown off Leak's intercep-
tion, allowing the Gators to squeak by
Tennessee 21-20 in Knoxville.
There was the controversial facemask
penalty against Georgia that allowed the
Gators to eventually run the dock out and
LSU's Jacob Hester being called down
just short of the goal line, leading to a
JaMarcus Russell fumble and no points
for the Tigers.


But it was
Jarvis Moss'
t blocked kick in
the final seconds
against South
Carolina that re-
Bryan Jones ally shows how
special this UF
Bryan Out Loud team is.
bjones@alligator.org While the
Gators are con-
stantly criticized for all the dose calls, they
have been as dutch and opportunistic as
they have been lucky.
After that win against South Carolina,
Jarvis Moss said he knew that UF would
somehow make it Glendale, Ariz., to play
for the national championship.
"There is no doubt about it," Moss
said. "Tonight, we just felt it. Everybody
on this team just has to believe. ... I can feel
it. Hopefully you guys can feel it."
A few weeks later, on a day where a
Capital One Bowl berth was still a huge
possibility, the Gators got another break
when they realized at halftime that
Southern California was defeated by
UCLA. Like countless other times this
season, the Gators capitalized, finishing
off Arkansas in the SEC Championship
game.
Ironically, UF also needed some unlike-
ly breaks to accomplish its first national


championship 10 years ago, when several
teams fell in the season's final weeks and
Arizona State lost in the Rose Bowl.
Will UF claim its second national title
and become the first school to win na-
tional championships in basketball and
football in the same year? Who knows.
But the Gators certainly deserve to be
there. Michigan played a much weaker
schedule and didn't win its own confer-
ence. And the Wolverines have the Big
Ten to blame.
If the conference would just pony up
and play a conference championship,
perhaps Michigan would have had a shot
to play its way into the BCS title game
instead of sitting on the couch watching
SpongeBob, to use a Meyer reference.
While the Gators will enter the BCS
title game as huge underdogs, and some
analysts will already be anointing Ohio
State the champion before the two teams
take'the field, just relax and enjoy the sea-
son this team has treated you to.
Something tells me this battle-tested
UF team, this team that is filled with
players who have gone through ups and
downs throughout this season and their
entire careers, will find a way to take
advantage of whatever situation comes
its way.
Is it destiny?
Yes.

The team that couldn't score putting up a 38 spot (sec-
ond-largest total in Southeastern Conference title game

The defense that could not survive Marcus Thomas'

The kicker who couldn't throw a rock into Lake Alice
and hit water converting a 33-yard field goal?
The program that had to escape Ron Zook, sprinting
miles ahead. The players who always won games too
closely for their own good defeating a top-10 team by
double digits.
They are still dancing in Gainesville after UF's sev-
enth SEC Championship and first since 2000. Thanks
to the Ohioan named Meyer, the Gators (12-1) defeated
Arkansas (10-3) 38-28 in front of 73,374 fans.

In what almost seemed unfair, too easy (for once) and
certainly too soon a return to greatness, the No. 2 Gators
are heading to Arizona.
How weak the human mind, how fickle human na-
ture.
Just seconds after capturing the elusive SEC
Championship, all anyone wanted to talk about was
Ginn, and not the kind you drink.
But what about some Urban Bourbon?
The coach once cried, sometimes sighed and could
never get enough first downs for anyone's full content.
Yet how quickly everything changes when you appease
the masses.
Meyer, just two years removed from his dream season
in Utah, seems to be moving mountains at every com-
mand.
Not even mega-legend Steve Spurrier made it to the
national championship game until his fifth season in
1996.
"I'm beat to death right now. I can't move," Meyer said
from atop the podium Saturday, looking like a defeated
winner. "What a tremendous game that was."
The Gators doused Meyer with a purple Gatorade
downpour before time expired, breaking two, unwritten
rules in the process: Never shower a coach who is still
wearing his headset and never soak a coach with the col-
ored stuff.
But can you blame UF players accustomed to Outback
Bowl steaks for not knowing the Code of Conduct?
"It's the greatest day of my life," senior receiver
Jemalle Cornelius said.
After this one, Baker gyrated in revolutions like a
newborn's father. He wore his skin-tight orange tank top
that read "I Can Do All Things Through Christ." And who
knows the way this season has gone, God might very .
well have had several votes in the Harris Poll.

MONDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2006 U ALLIGATOR, 3 Group protests five-year plan FACULTY AND G RAD STUDENTS CONFRONT MACHEN. By ELIZABETH HILLAKER Alligator Writer ehilaker@ailigator.org About 30 UF students and faculty members attended Friday's Board of Trustees meeting, where they protested the administration's plan to lift the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences out of debt. Wearing identical orange stickers to show their solidarity, a group of about 15 crowded around UF President -Bernie Machen before the meeting to air their concerns about CLAS and the five-year plan to eliminate the college's $4 million deficit. The plan, which has been in place since September, will freeze hiring and cut money for departments like English and religion while boosting funds for departments like chemistry and zoology. One English professor continually pressed Machen to elicit from CLAS Dean Neil Sullivan a written explanation for the recent dismissal of English Chairman John Leavey. Machen promised that Sullivan would give such an explanation. The group lamented the lack of support for graduate students and wamed that some faculty members are seeking jobs elsewhere. During the meeting, the trustees endorsed Machen's Academic Enhancement Program, which will charge incoming UF students an additional UF $ 1 0 0 0 -AdtM'lll" Ol each year starting next Fall. English graduate studentAngelique Nixon told the board that the money might not be enough to heal the damage. "We are worried because faculty and student morale is at an all-time low," Nixon said. "We are not sure how departments in CLAS will be able to recruit and compete for outstanding faculty .even with these new funds from the Academic Enhancement Program, which may arrive too late to repair the damage already done." Faculty Senate Chairwoman Danaya-Wright, who is a member of the board, told trustees that faculty members and graduate students feel like the board doesn't know the magnitude of discontent at the urnversity. She said the faculty wants more communication with the upper administration. .The administration knew about the debt problem for three years, she added, so some faculty members felt it rushed the college to have a plan in place within a few months this summer. Machen continued to insist the budget crisis is the college's problem and the plan will stay in place until the faculty or the students devise a new plan. Faculty members then pointed to the newly formed Faculty Finance Advisory Committee in CLAS, which is gathering data for a new plan. Still, Machen said he is willing to increase communication between the administration and CLAS faculty. "This is not a big problem to fix," he said of the communication gap. CLAS Debt Timeline The college starts to outspend its budget'and has a $1.6 million deficit. A newspa per report makes the eb ulc Deadline for CLAS' plan to eliminate debt. CLAS Dean Neil Sullivan a nnounces he will resign h is post amid questions over his handling of the CLAS de bt, effective Jan. 1, 2007.

4, ALLIGATOR N MONDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2006 UF ADMINISTRATION UF nears financial, administrative changes at meeting Board of Trustees approves fee By ELIZABETH HILLAKER Alligator Writer ehiIaker@aIIigator.org The plan to raise student fees at UF by $1,000 each year, approved Friday by the university's Board of Trustees, now awaits the endorsement of Florida legislators. UF President Bernie Machen proposed the charge, dubbed the Academic Enhancement Program, to hire 200 tenure-track faculty members and 100 more advisers. Next Fail's freshman class will be the first to pay the fee if it is passed. The Board of Governors, which oversees the State University System, approved the proposal last month. To take effect, the Legislature must pass it, and the governor must sign it into law. The trustees will push hard for lawmakers to pass the bill this Spring. At Friday's meeting, they urged students, faculty, alumni and UF lobbyists to press their representatives. "If there was ever a time to mobilize the Gator Nation, this is it," trustee Marmy Fernandez said. The trustees, who seemed anxious to get on the road to Atlanta for the Southeastern Conference Championship game, quickly approved other measures, including increases in student fees that totaled $1.67 per credit hour. That money will go toward the Regional Transit System, student health services and Student Government's coffers. After the meeting, UF trustee Joelen Merkel donned a bright orange Gators jacket covered with UF paraphemalia and headed down the stairs of Emerson Alumni Hall. The board will discuss UF's long-term strategy at a retreat in Jacksonville, Feb. 12 through Feb. 13. New position to aid in Machen's duties By ELIZABETH HILLAKER Alligator Writer ehilIlaker@alligator.org UF President Bernie Machen has appointed a new administrator to take over some of his responsibilities and handle university affairs while he is traveling. Machen made the announcement at the university trustees' meeting Friday. The new position, senior vice president for administrative affairs, will be filled by Kyle Cavanaugh, the current vice president for human resources. -Cavanaugh will take Machen's place in joint meetings with several of the university's vice presidents in nonacademic areas, such as legal counsel and finance. "Originally they reported to me, and that's the problem," Machen said. Cavanaugh will report directly to Machen after meeting with other administrators. Machen said relief from such duties will free up time. Machen will still keep abreast of issues at UF by meeting with vice presidents individually. Machen said he is increasingly on the road -lobbying for student recruits in China or for money in Tallahassee -so a leader needs to be in Tigert Hall if something comes up. He noted that last. summer, when the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences' looming debt became apparent, he was in Idaho fly-fishing -sans BlackBerry. Cavanaugh, who came to UF from the University of Texas at Austin, was instrumental in getting domestic-partner benefits for UF faculty and staff and in bringing health care to graduate students during his year-and-a-half tenure at UP. He will continue to head the human resources branch until Machen finds a replacement. Machen also announced that UF will soon have a chief financial officer who will be in charge -of tracking the university's $3.7 billion budget, down to, the department level. Machen said after the meeting that the board had been requesting a CFO because it was unsatisfied with the oversight of the university's money He said the CLAS debt was a factor in the position's creation, but wasn't the deciding factor. The search for a CFO will be national, and Machen said he would like someone in place by July. 0 0 "Copyrighted Material i Syndicated ContentV Available from Commercial News Providers" tic Bottles yY EYEGIASS== FXRESS) ONE'HOUR SERVICE& Butler Plaza (next to Archer Rd.

If direct sun can't be avoided, diffuse the light with a shade or sheer curtain. o Water your plant when the soil feels dry to the touch. o Use a large, roomy shopping bagt protect your plant when transporting it. Place plants near cold drafts or excessive heat. Avoid, placing plants near appliances, fireplaces or ventilating ducts. o Expose plants to temperatures below 50* F. Poinsettias are sensitive to cold, so avoid placing them outside during the winter months. o Over-water your plant or allow It to sit in standing water. Always remove a plant from any decorative container before watering, and allow the water to drain completely. o Expose your plant to cold winds when transporting it. Kim Wilmath / Alligator Staff By KRISTIN NORTON Alligator Contributing Writer Shades of pink, red and mauve will light up the morning before the sun has a chance to peep over the horizon. At 7 a.m. Tuesday, before the doors even open, vendors will wait in their cars until they can get a glimpse of the brilliant colors. This year's Poinsettia Variety Trial Field Days, hosted by UF's Department of Environmental Horticulture, will display 102 varieties of poinsettias at the greenhouses behind Fifield Hall. Industry members and growers attend the field day Tuesday, but the department is opening its doors to the public on Thursday. Students in the Environmental Horticulture Club prepared 1,250 6-inch pots and 100 8-inch pots for the exhibit. They will offer 20 to 25 varieties of poinsettias for the public during the consumer-day sale. "It's equivalent to a beauty pageant," said Carolyn Bartuska, a senior biologist in the department. Prices range from $8 for red, 6-inch plants to $15 or $20 for specialty varieties. The money from the sale will go toward the club's sevento 10-day international study trip in the Spring. Last year the dub raised $20,000 for their trip to Costa Rica, and this year they are going to France. "It was a great experience to meet other kids in the same field," said horticulture senior Carson Winn. 0 0cc ne Students $5 Employees $20 Tuesday, Dec 5 Reitz Union Colonnade .10:30a-1:30pm Wednesday, Dec 6 Reitz Union Colonnade .10:30am-1:30pmI ThursdayDec7 Reitz Union Colonnade .1 030an-1:30pm Flu Vaccine Available at SHCC and all Satellite Clinics M Over 97 percent of SFCC's career fast track graduates find jobs in the fields of their choice.

The field day and the sale are also important experiences for the students in the club. "We want the students to see the variability in the crops that we grow and just the total amount of plants that is out there," Bartuska said. Although working with customers at the field day and the sale is more relaxing than working with growers, consumers play an important role, Bartuska said. They can fill out surveys that gauge the public's favorite varieties of poinsettia, which in the past have differed from what growers thought. On "It was a real eye-opener to us," Campus Bartuska said. A consumer favorite in past years has been the multicolored Monet Twilightbut burgundy plants are becoming more popular. The.variety of colors always amazes consumers, Bartuska said. I "When people walk in and see all the colors, they say, 'You must love your job,"' Bartuska said. When the field days started nine years ago, only growers were permitted to attend. They now come to learn about new varieties, height control and experiments, but they also want to learn how to ease the difficult growing process. UF receives rooted cuttings of poinsettias from breeders and must plant them within the first week of the Fall semester to be ready by December, Boldt said. "No one wants their flower to come the day after Christmas," Bartuska said. -1 STUDY ABROAD SEVILLE, SPAIN The only city in Europe that merges Roman, Jewish and Moorish culture with a young and exciting University town, a Mediterranean diet and weather UW -PLATTEVILLE / SPANISH-AMERICAN INSTITUTE In 1984 began one of the finest study abroad programs in the world according to The Students Guide to the Best -Study Abroad Programs A COMPLETE PROGRAM -Classes taught in English and Spanish *-Homestay with Spanish families -24 hours staff on call -your safety and well-being our number one concern -Daily culture visits -weekend trips available -Practice Spanish with Spanish University students -Students are provided with cell phones Free access to internet on premises Price -S 7,895 for WI/M1N residents -S 8,495 for non-residents SEVILLA!

6, ALLIGATOR N MONDAY, DECEMBER 4,2006 Editorial Quran ban? U.S. alienates Muslim citizens at its peril When the 110th Congress is sworn in next month, Rep -elect Keith Ellison intends to recite his oath of office with one hand on the Quran. That's right Ellison's a Muslim, the first ever elected to the House of Representatives. Sadly, that makes him a controversial guy. In Ellison's home state of Minnesota and across the country, the religious right is up in arms over his decision not to use a Christian Bible during the induction ceremony. The American Family Association has even lobbied Congress to prohibit the use of the Quran, the Torah and other non-Christiani books for swearing in new representatives. Needless to say, that's ridiculous. Forcing a Muslim -or anyone, for that matter -to swear an oath with his hand on the Bible would be a clear violation of the First Amendment, which bars Congress from establishing a state religion. But that's not the worst part. The worst' part is that it could transform the "clash of civilizations" between the West and the world's 1.4 billion Muslims from a myth into a reality. And no one wants that -no one with a double-digit IQ, anyway. Even the president is careful to note that our wars in, on and around Muslim countries aren't wars on Islam itself. But when columnists suggest that Ellison's choice of scripture "undermines American civilization," for example, the message is clear -Muslims aren't welcome in America. That's a shame, because millions of them already live here. They pay taxes, watch "CSI," get fat and drive giant cars, just like everyone else. They don't riot, like some French Muslims. They don't join radical mosques, like some teenagers in London. In fact, they're pretty well integrated into American society -which is why, unlike many European countries, the United States has no "Muslim problem" to speak of. Sure, we have our share of bigots. Keith Ellison can attest to that. And yes, the government is endlessly, frantically, obsessively paranoid about another Sept. 11, 2001. But our most frightening nightmare scenarios revolve around attacks from without -not from within. That's what separates us from, say, France. Or Great Britain. Or the Netherlands. We worry about Osama bin Laden, but they worry about the guy across the street -and with good reason. The guy across the street burns cars, blows up trains and assassinates movie directors. Of course, the majority of European Muslims are decent, law-abiding citizens and no threat to anyone. But decades of social and economic exclusion have created an embittered, radical minority that endangers everyone -including moderate Muslims. In 2004, for example, France banned Islamic head scarves in public schools, and the resulting outcry contributed to riots in Paris' immigrant neighborhoods later that year. Western societies pay a steep price for alienating their. Muslim citizens. Luckily, we're not quite there yet. But every time the president jails a Muslim without charges, every time cops or security guards profile an Arab American, we get a little bit closer. If we don't change course soon, we may send out an ugly message -that being a Muslim and being an American are mutually exclusive. And that's not just wrong.

LNAPICQV T.F ALLIGATOR www.aIligator.org/opinions WOOkP YOU W-Kt 01F Think twice before drinking that beer member those last few days of excitement before Winter Break in elementary school? The air was colder. The classroom was covered with tinsel and the holiday crafts you and your classmates had made. But your eyes were focused on one thing -that big analog clock on the wall, ticking down to freedom. You'd glance up at it compulsively, pleading with the hands to move faster. You knew that when the last bell rang, you were free to do whatever you wanted. Somehow, Winter Break isn't the same anymore. We're older. We're living on our own. But there's another difference, too -and I think it's alcohol. I must admit I don't drink. My grandfather traded his marriage, three kids and roughly 25 years of his life for daily beer -not a good deal, in my opinion. Family baggage is a factor in why I won't touch the stuff until I'm 21, and after that only moderately. That said, I don't think any less of people just because they drink. I've been to numerous parties with bars as wet as they get. I won't stupidly claim that drinking is no longer fun after the novelty wears off, or that any fun you do have while drunk goes unremembered. What worries me is that for many, alcohol is more and more necessary to enjoy things that used to be fun dry. Take dancing, for example. There are a lot of guys who never dance -or try to dance -without some alcohol in their blood. That's a shame. And how many people our age watched football, hung out with friends and watched movies long before they had their first beer -but no longer like these activities without a buzz? Wasn't the fun you had with your friends over Winter Break in grade school qualitatively better, nostalgia aside? When you did something together back then, it was because you liked the people you were with. But now, more and more gatherings with people called friends Gerald Liles are just drunken assemblies The Liles Files with the guarantee that someone letters@alligator.org will say or do something memorably, hilariously stupid. You just hope it's not you. When you get drunk, you might laugh at everything, whether or not it's funny. You might say something partially true and deeply hurt someone you care about. You might trip over a barstool and give everyone a good laugh -or you might kill someone. Make no mistake, though. No matter where the keys are, no matter how particular you are about whom you get drunk with, you never get to choose which of those things will happen. Risk is unavoidable no matter what you do -or what you abstain from, for that matter. It may well be that drinking is consistently fun enough for you to party every night you're not studying. But why not try hanging out with your friends sober? You might like it. If not, all I ask for is a little honest evaluation. When you were younger, when you watched "Home Alone" or "The Muppet Christmas Carol" or baked cookies -whatever you did during the holidays -were you thinking about how much better it would be with a beer?

MONDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2006 M ALLIGATOR, 7 Helping the homeless demands action In his Friday letter, Edward Miller argued that the abundance of money poured into local businesses by UF students should counteract the problem of homeless people in Gainesville. I guess the homeless should be thankful they're homeless in such a wealthy city. The fact is, a very small portion of the money you spend in local stores directly benefits the homeless. That's why the compassionate approach to helping people that David Reznik and others advocate is appropriate. It's easy to justify our selfishness -we're always busy, we're students, we have deadlines. But ignorance of the pain that persists in our communities is just an excuse to continue living only for ourselves, instead of living as fellow members of an injured society. Daniel Gualtieri No good reason for Leavey's dismissal On her personal Web site (www.janiefouke.com), UF Provost Janie Fouke prominently displays an admirable quote: "Every individual should be treated with dignity all the time." Unfortunately, over the past several months, Fouke has had difficulty putting this maxim into action. As an English graduate student, I've been lucky for the past several years to enjoy dedicated leadership on the part of my department chair, John Leavey. On Thursday, he was unceremoniously dismissed from this leadership position with no explanation by the administration. But as far as I can tell, Leavey's only failure was his dissent to the five-year plan's unwieldy hiring freeze, its lack of faculty involvement and its dramatic weakening of academic excellence at U.

8, ALLIGATOR N MONDAY, DECEMBER 4,2006 STUDENT LIFE After hiatus, Heathy Gators club gears up for Spring By WHITNEY SESSA Alligator Contributing Writer Healthy Gators is getting back into shape for Spring semester. After remaining inactive for the past year, the student-run organization will start back up in the Spring with a new executive board ready to put new ideas into action. "I'm hoping to establish the group as a lasting student organization that will continue to benefit students long after I leave," said Tom Dudash, the organization's president. Dudash, a history junior, said the group's main goal is to promote a healthy lifestyle-for students at UF by focusing on physical and mental health. For the main Spring event, the organization is planning a doubleelimination beach volleyball tournament, he said. Students will be able to compete for prizes such as gym memberships, gift certificates and health supplements. Healthy Gators will also keep students active with bowling, ultimate Frisbee, basketball, softball, cycling, runs across campus and other sports events, he said. "If you're in shape, you're going to live longer and enjoy life more," "If you're in shape, you're going to live longer and enjoy life more." Bobby Casey Healthy Gators treasurer said Treasurer Bobby Casey, a history junior. Another project that Healthy Gators has in the works is creating a student cookbook with recipes for healthy home cooking. Once the cookbook is completed, Healthy Gators plans to host a cookout using recipes from the book, Dudash said. One of his main goals as president, he said, is to restructure the group so that it can operate on its own. He also wants to increase active membership and create new positions that will boost member involvement. The organization, which is open to all UF students, plans to meet once a month, he said. It will host speakers, such as nutritionists and other health experts, who will discuss topics such as healthy diets and exercise programs. A few of the organization's past activities have included a workout buddy program, a midnight ice cream social for students pulling allnighters, and a Spring Break forum that addressed topics such as safe tanning, safe sex and how to avoid hangovers. Established in January of 2004, the organization became dormant after the members of the executive board graduated and moved on to graduate school. Although this has been a setback, the organization's leaders are excited to get back on its feet and attract new members, Dudash said. "The group is easygoing, with virtually .no requirements for membership," he said. "Everybody wants to be healthy, and this group will give you the tools to do that in a fun and relaxing environment." 0 0 # I 4 4 S 6 S.

10, ALLIGATOR E MONDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2006 Ben & Jerry's makes transition to cage-free hens By MELISSA SMALL Alligator Contributing Writer Scrambled, fried or poached. Which way would you prefer your eggs? Most people have preferences concerning the preparation of their eggs. But when it comes to how those eggs are produced and prepared in processed foods, they aren't always aware of the choices. "Consumers too often aren't aware of where their food comes from. Geoffrey Dahl UF animal sciences professor Ben & Jerry's recently announced that after a four-year transition phase, they will be the first national food manufacturer to use certified, humane cage-free methods to raise their egglaying hens. "Consumers too often aren't aware of where their food comes from," said UF animal sciences professor Geoffrey Dahl. The Certified Humane Raised & Handled program is administered by the independent, nonprofit organization Humane Farm Animal Care. Companies like Ben & Jerry's that display the organization's certification label must allow animals to engage in their natural behaviors and be raised with sufficient space and shelter -among other standards, according to the organization's Web site. And animal products are checked for quality and safety, Dal said. A certificate from the Humane Farm Animal Care organization can set companies apart from their competition. "(The certification) is giving the appearance that other animal products aren't produced in a humane fashion," Dahl said. The nutritional value of the products with the certified humane cage-free eggs should not be altered. An alteration in taste would only be for the better, Dahl said. Elyssa Winston, an employee at Ben & Jerry's on University Avenue, believes the ice cream served there is better than the competition. "I think it tastes better," Winston said. Andrew Stanfill / Alligator Customers at Ben & Jerry's on West University Avenue reach out for their ice cream Sunday evening. The chain will begin the transition to eggs produced by cage-free hens. The employees at Ben & Jerry's are informed by their managers about the products and missions of the company. Recently, eggs have been added as an ingredient to cookie and brownie batter. To prevent salmonella, they are no longer allowed to sell the batter raw, Winston said. The announcement allows an opportunity for suppliers to produce certified, humane cage-free eggs. The suppliers producing eggs for Ben & Jerry's should be able to gain a premium for their product, Dahl said. Eggs with the certified humane certification are not just used in Ben & Jerry's ice cream. They are available for purchase at Public Super Markets and Ward's Super Market. The certification is gaining more recognition as the market grows. This trend has the potential to become similar to the growth of organic products, said philosophy professor Richard Haynes, who specializes in animal welfare ethics. Ben & Jerry's can afford to use certified, humane cage-free eggs. The new certification provides a way to differentiate their high-end product in the market, Dali said.

MONDAY, DECEMBER 4,2006 N ALLIGATOR, 19 U dASnnTgmnALL Sloppy defending champs handled by Seminoles By JENNA MARINA Alligator Staff Writer jmarina@aIigator.org TALLAHASSEE -While the Gators football team was rejoicing the possibility of becoming UF's new national champions, UF's current national champions gasped for air in a sea of garnet and gold. Thousands of Seminoles fans rushed the court, waving their pointer fingers in the air after the No. 4 UF men's basketball team (7-2) fell to Florida State (5-2) 70-66 on Sunday night at the Donald L. Tucker Center. It was the first time FSU defeated a ranked UF team in Tallahassee since Dec 1, 1989, when the No. 14 Seminoles downed the No. 19 Gators 104-86. Point guard Taurean Green, who led the team with 21 points, tried to take the game-winning shot with AnUy Apicella / Aligator UF junior forward Al Horford struggles to keep possession of the ball from Florida State forward Uche Echefu on Sunday night during the Gators' 70-66 loss to the Seminoles.

"We didn't do a very good job executing coming down the stretch," Donovan said. "I just thought the shot that he took needed to be a little bit better or a drive to the basket. I think that anytime at the end of the game one play can be magnified on what Taurean should or shouldn't have done, but that was a product of being in that situation of what had happened over the previous 32-minute period." UF trailed for practically the whole game. FSU got their first lead when Jason Rich drove around Walter Hodge and made a layup to give the Seminoles a 12-10 advantage in the first several minutes. The win redeemed FSU from back-to-back losses to No. 2 Pittsburgh and No. 11 Wisconsin. "Anytime you get a non-conference win against an outstanding team like the University of Florida," FSU coach Leonard Hamilton said, "it can't do anything but help you.", UF trailed by as much as 15 points with 8:43 left in the game. Then the Gators went on a 23-10 run to put them within 2 points with 54 seconds left. "The way we were playing at the end of the game," Green said, "we should have been playing like that the whole game." But the damage was already done, and UF could not rebound from the large deficit.

"We shouldn't have even been in that hole in the first place." In the first half, FSU held Joakim Noah to 2 points and two rebounds and Al Horford to 2 points and one rebound. Donovan benched Noah and Horford for a period in the second half because he was not happy with their production. "That hole we dug ourselves in, that was a deep hole." Taurean Green UF point guard "I sat some of our older guys and played some of our younger guys and let them spectate for a little bit," Donovan said. "And then for whatever reason, we try to turn it on at the end and it wasn't good enough." This was the first game in the past three weeks that UF had some time to prepare for. The Gators practiced three days prior to their Tallahassee trip, but if the players want to win games, practice alone will not be enough. "They need to, in my opinion, make a conscious decision of what physical commitment they are going to make," Donovan said. "I think it starts with our older guys. Hopefully they will make the commitment that is necessary." GENERAL NUTRITION CENTERS %OFFany o GN Product Cannot be cornbined Need coupon.

"I'm spoiled," freshman receiver Percy Harvin said. The coach gathered his players Sunday night into a media lounge located in the Swamp to watch Fox's BCS Selection Show. Meyer had been noncommittal to his players throughout the day about whether UF would jump Michigan. "I was on the phone probably every 6 1/2 minutes," he said. "I was talking to (UF athletics director) Jeremy (Foley) and I was driving myself crazy. But I told my players the same thing I told him: 'I think it looks good, but just hang in there."' The Coaches' Poll was released early during the day, giving the Gators a clue about their fate. But many of the players weren't sure until they saw the official announcement. During a commercial break of the selection show, sports information director Steve McClain advised the team they would soon be named Ohio State's opponent. Players began whispering. Receiver David Nelson slapped his knees in agitation. Then, wearing mostly SEC Championship gear, players burst into a frenzy when the announcement was made. Tight end Tate Casey gave his teammates a round of hugs. A stoic Meyer eventually placed his hand behind his head so linebacker Brandon Siler could give him a no-look high-five. The television broadcast was delayed. So when the players watched their own reaction on TV and saw Meyer's stem demeanor during the announcement, they broke into a group chuckle. The coach had celebrated his SEC Championship late Saturday night by watching some ESPN and taking a three-hour nap on his couch. FOX later showed how narrowly the Gators surpassed Michigan and the Gators fell silent. Siler gripped the shoulder of punter Eric Wilbur and offered a, "Wow -how fortunate," kind of expression. "I don't think it's hit me, actually," Siler said afterward. "I'm pretty sure when I get away from everybody and walk to my car, I'm going to scream as loud as I can." "This is unimaginable," receiver Andre Caldwell said. "That's stuff I was dreaming about since I was a kid -even as a grownup. At the end of the day, there were too many storylines to count. Meyer, a native of Ashtabula, Ohio, will play against the school where he was a football graduate assistant and eventually left with a master's degree in sports administration. The SEC landed its first national championship game participant since Louisiana State in 2003. Meanwhile, Michigan is left wading in a puddle of crushed sour grapes. The Wolverines won't get their rematch with Ohio State. Michigan coach Lloyd Carr, in anticipation of the final BCS standings, called Meyer's recent comments against a rematch "inappropriate." "I have great respect for him, but I don't get it," Meyer said. "I didn't lobby -I was asked a question and I answered how I felt."

MONDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2006 U ALLIGATOR, 21 McCray leads Gators to victory, berth in Sweet 16 N THE JUNIOR HAD 22 KILLS AGAINST ARIZONA STATE. By JOSH ARMSTRONG Alligator Writer jarmstrong@alligator.org Arizona State didn't get to see opposite hitter Amber McCray on Thursday, but by Friday night they had seen enough. The junior had 22 kills and only three errors on .442 hitting as the No. 9-seeded UF volleyball team (30-2) defeated the Sun Devils 3-1 to advance to the Sweet 16. "We had a lot of trouble trying to contain McCray," ASU coach Brad Saindon said. "We didn't see her last night. She was a surprise." McCray sat out UF's first-round match against Florida A&M to rest a nagging-sore left shoulder. Though she merely described her condition as "good," her swings looked quicker and more powerful than in other matches since suffering the injury. While UF coach Mary Wise said she didn't try to catch ASU off-guard by sitting McCray she agrees it was a factor in the win. "I can appreciate that watching a player hit on tape and seeing them live is completely different," Wise said. "Much of this win has to go to Stefanie Douglas (who played in McCray's stead Thursday)." UF's 30-17 game-one win seemed to foretell a Gators' sweep, as ASUaccumulated a .116 hitting percentage. Then, the Sun Devils shored up their offensive woes and led 26-20 in game two, but UF stormed back with a 10-1 run to take the game 30-27. ASU's main downfall was serving. It committed fivd of its 12 service errors in game two, losing points that could have dosed out the Gators. Us again fell behind in game three but was unable to muster up a comeback, losing 30-26. The Gators responded by never losing the lead in game four to win 30-23. Although UF. trailed for much of the match, junior outside hitter Marcie Hampton said any kind of win will do. "We're still alive, and that's what counts," she said. Senior defensive specialist Rhian Davis had a career-high 22 digs. Kelsey Bowers had 11 total blocks -including 10 block assists -and added nine kills on .444 hitting. She also set new UF records for total blocks (174) and block assists (152) by a sophomore. JuniormiddleblockerKisyaKillingsworth had 13 kills and Hampton had 15 kills. Junior setter Angie McGinnis nearly had her third triple-double of the season with eight kills, 53 assists and 18 digs. "(ASU's) setter doesn't tip too often, so they don't get to see it much in practice," McGinnis said. "So I had a lot of chances to (get kills) and that opened up our hitters as well." The Gators may have the muggy Gainesville climate to thank for some of ASU's 24 attack errors. "It's the humidity," Saindon said. "The air's a little thicker, and the ball moves a little (different) than out west." UF moves on to face No.8 seed Minnesota (25-7) on Friday in Gainesville. Top-seeded Nebraska (29-1) and No. 16 seed San Diego (26-5) will also play Friday in the Gainesville regionals. Nebraska eliminated UF in the regional finals last year. The winner of each match will play Saturday for a Final Four berth. rim casey / Alligator Staff UF junior opposite hitter Amber McCray celebrates during the Gators' win against Mississippi on Oct. 13.

22, ALLIGATOR E MONDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2006 Leak overcomes roller coaster game for first SEC title By LOUIS ANASTASIS Alligator Staff Writer Ianstasis@aligator.org ATLANTA -Go ahead, Chris -take a sigh of relief. The lows have merged into highs. The pain has flushed into joy. Anxiety has been replaced by consolation. Finally, the two-ton anvil has been taken off the shoulders of UF starting quarterback Chris Leak. Despite throwing two crucial interceptions and fumbling the ball in the second half, Leak captured the Southeastern Conference Championship he has so desperately crusaded for since arriving to Gainesville. "It's indescribable," Leak said. "I can't describe the emotions. High emotions are everywhere. Ijust want to thank my teammates and coaches. I'm just so proud of these guys." The numbers, for once, don't tell the story. The senior, who has done plenty in the statistics department since 2003, truly quarterbacked his team to the title. Leak finished just 16 of 30 for 189 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. But he broke Danny Wuerffel's school record for career passing yardage. Leak's 37-yard touchdown pass to Percy Harvin during the second quarter gave him 10,895 yards to Wuerffel's 10,875. Leak now has 11,000 yards. It was his ability to rebound from what started like a crushing third-quarter collapse that allowed him to capture the title. "I just had to stay focused," Leak said. "You have to have a short memory with those things. We just made the plays when they needed to be made." The knock on Leak throughout his career has been his inability to bag the big one. During his freshman season, Leak proclaimed,. he would stay single until UF won a national championship. He eventually fell short on that vow, but now has that shot at the coveted title game. "It's just such a great feeling," Leak said Sunday. "It's a very exciting time for the Gators. I'm just real thankful the Lord has put us in a position to do this." "He proved he's a great quarterback. He proved he's a great leader. He's a champion now." Andrew Caldwell UF wide receiver It almost didn't happen this way. Many of UF's players found out at halftime that No. 2 Southern Cal had been upset by UCLA 13-9. But Leak and Co. never rode that surge of adrenaline into the third quarter. Up 17-7, the Gators received the ball first and then .disaster. Arkansas dropped back into zone coverage and an unsuspecting Leak threw the ball right to linebacker Weston Dacus, who was guarding the middle of the field. Seven plays later, Arkansas tailback Darren McFadden completed a 2-yard touchdown pass to Felix Jones. Then, two drives later, it happened again. Leak began running an option play to the left, though he had Harvin as a shovel-pass option to the right. But instead of continuing to the left, Leak forced an ill-advised shovel to his freshman. Right end Antwain Robinson one-armed an interception and chugged for a 40-yard touchdown. The Razorbacks led 21-17 and Coach Urban Meyer pulled Leak aside for a quick discussion. "I wasn't patting him on the back," Meyer said. "I was just coaching him and directing him. We just coached him. There was no group hug or anything." But Leak eventually gathered his comUF senior Chris Leak runs for an 8-yard touchdown during the second quarter of the Gators' 38-28 win against Arkansas in the Southeastern Conference Championship. posure. Though he did not pass for another "He proved he's a great quarterback. He score, the senior moved the Gators down the proved he's a great leader. He's a champion field on nearly every subsequent possession. now," receiver Andre Caldwell said. UF suffers key injuries By DAN TREAT Alligator Staff Writer dtreat@aligator.org ATLANTA -The injury bug that seems to have bit UF so many times this year struck again in various forms in the Southeastern Conference Championship game against Arkansas on Saturday night. The worst injury befell senior defensive lineman Ray McDonald, who tore a ligament in his right elbow during the first half and didn't return. He was X-rayed during the game and is probable for the national championship, Urban Meyer said Sunday. "Hopefully, I'll be fine for the bowl game," McDonald said after the game. Strong safety Tony Joiner spent 9-veral minutes on the ground after a group tackle of Razorbacks tailback Darren McFadden on Arkansas' second offensive series and didn't return to the game. Wide receiver Andre Caldwell walked off limping early in the game and retreated to the locker rpom, but he quickly re-emerged and played the remainder of the game. Offensive lineman Drew Miller was hurt on UF's very first offensive play, but he returned on the next series. Cornerback Ryan Smith was treated on the field for a Football possible hamstring injury in the first half, but returned on the Gators' next defensive series. Smith also went down after intercepting a pass late in the fourth quarter that was negated by a pass interference penalty but missed just a single play. Linebacker Brandon Siler left the field with 3:29 remaining in the fourth quarter. He was replaced by freshman Brandon Spikes. BLOCK PARTY: The Gators established a school record when freshman Jarred Fayson blocked a Jacob Skinner punt in the second quarter. It was UF's eighth blocked kick of the season, breaking a school record that had been standing since 1995. Lochte appearance sparks UF EBOWDEN LEADS WOMEN'S BASKETBALL AGAINST SOUTH ALABAMA. By MIKE MCCALL Alligator Writer It's Deceniber now, and everyone knows that's Rudolf's time of year. The UF swimmng and diving team wrapped up its fall schedule at the U.S. Open in West Lafayette, Ind., and at the Texas Invitational in Austin this weekend the brightest spot for the Gators was the performance of freshman Roland Rudolf. Rudolf, a native of Budapest, Hungary, tuned in UF's top two finishes at the Open -winning the 200-meter backstroke event on Thursday and earning eighth place in the 100 back on Friday. "Roland Rudolf was the bright spot of the day for us on Thursday," Coach Gregg Troy said. "He really swam a great a race. It was impressive to see the way he went out and raced against a great field." Rudolf's 200 back victory was the Gators' second consecutive win in the event -in 2005, standout Ryan Lochte won it. Lochte, the former UF star, also had a successful Open this year -winning the 100 back over Rudolf on Friday. "A lot of our younger guys really look up to Ryan Lochte, and it was good to see him perform so well," Troy said. For the women, sophomore Laurabeth Guenthner had the top performance -ninth in the 800-meter freestyle and 24th in the 400 free. "Overall, this trip helped us figure out where we're at as a team." Troy said. "It's great to be able to see what we're looking at for next semester." The Gators had won the university team title at the U.S. Open for the last five years, but placed second this weekend -losing to Auburn 266 to 427. UF also sent swimmers to compete in the Texas invitational, where the men finished 10th out of 11 teams and the women placed 13th out of 16. Sophomore Rex Tullius turned in the top performance for the Gators, finishing fifth in the 200-yard back event. The best women's finish belonged to freshman Elizabeth Goldson -16th in the 1,650 free. The No. 11 men's team (2-4, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) and ninth-ranked women (4-1, 2-0 SEC) will enjoy a break before returning to action on Jan. 12, when they host Virginia in the O'Connell Center at 7 p.m. BOWDEN PROPELS UF WOMEN'S BASKETBALL: Rebounds have plagued UF all season long, and apparently, Depree Bowden is sick of it. Bowden is listed as a guard, but her box score was more like that of a center on Friday night against South Alabama. She gobbled up a careerhigh 15 rebounds to go along with 10 points, four steals and one block, helping the Gators (4-4) to a 62-50 victory against the Jaguars. It was her first career double-double. "Thank goodness for Depree Bowden," UF coach Carolyn Peck said. "In the first half it looked like she was the only one going to the offensive boards. That's what really kept us in the ball game." Bowden's intensity must've been contagious. UF had just a 2-point halftime lead (31-29) and even trailed by 6 (14-8) at the 12:41 mark in the first half, but that lead quickly expanded. -BRIAN STEELE .1 Rudolf

MONDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2006 U ALLIGATOR, 23 Special teams, trick plays, UCLA win spark Gators By NICK ZACCARDI Alligator Staff Writer nzaccardi@aigator.org ATLANTA -As the surprising news came up at halftime, UF coach Urban Meyer had one thing to say to his team. "Coach told us to get ready to play for something," tight end Tate Casey said. Indeed, the Gators' 38-28 win againstArkansas inthe Southeastern Conference Championship vaulted them into playing for a little something called the national championship. "What a game. What a tremendous atmosphere. There were a bunch of first-rounders on that field playing." Urban Meyer UF football coach Coupled with Southern Cal's stunning loss at UCLA, UF's first SEC title since 2000 pits them against No.1 Ohio State in the Bowl Championship Series title game. The highlights of Saturday night played out in timeline fashion. Before No. 2 UF (12-1, 7-1 SEC) sealed the game on an end-around pass from Andre Caldwell to Tate Casey, the two games provided one excellent couch-potato channelchanging experience. As the Gators worked to take a 17-7 lead into the half, the public address announcer at the Georgia Dome updated the split crowd with scores from the USC-UCLA game. Some players claimed they didn't know the USC final at halftime, but others said the news fluttered through parts of the locker room. That's when Meyer took control. JSyndicated Co intent Available from Commercial News Providers" F "It was firing through the locker room pretty quick," ,Meyer said. "I heard about it and was kind of like, 'Let's worry about what we have to worry about."' Fans erupted prior to the start of the second half when the scoreboard displayed the 13-9 upset special. From there, the Gators battled for their championship lives -both conference and national. It started out terribly for the Gators, as the Arkansas Razorbacks scored two touchdowns to take a 21-17 lead. Quarterback Chris Leak (16 of 30 for 189 yards and one touchdown) threw .two interceptions on UF's first three drives. "Chris has been in through the wringer and we had great confidence," Meyer said. "We just tried to coach him through two bad series." Then UF took the momentum back late in the third quarter. First, the Gators faked a punt with wide receiver Jemalle Cornelius taking a handoff from punter Eric Wilbur 17 yards for a first down. Four plays later, Meyer thought about trying to defy conventional wisdom again. At first, he wanted to Attempt a conversion on a fourth-and-one from the UF 41. But after calling a timeout to weigh the decision, co-defensive coordinator Greg Mattison convinced Meyer otherwise. "The comment over the headset was Greg Mattison saying, 'It's early,"' Meyer said. "He jdft kept saying, 'It's early. Let's play some great defense." The move paid off as Wilbur's 54-yard punt ended up in the hands of a Gators player. Freshman Wondy Pierre-Louis recovered a fumble by Arkansas returner Reggie Fish in the end zone for a gimme score to regain the lead. UF scored on its next offensive play, a 67-yard run by Percy Harvin, with 14:22 left in the game. Harvin led the Gators with six carries for 105 yards and added five catches for 62 yards, earning game MVP honors. A week after being carted off the field with a neck stinger against Florida State, Harvin returned with his best performance of the season. "The coaches told us that Arkansas was going to be in manto-man coverage," Harvin said. "They challenged us to make some big plays." Though Arkansas scored again to cut the lead to 31-28, Caldwell sealed it on the pass to Casey with 9:04 remaining. UF fended off late comeback attempts with interceptions front Ryan Smith and Reggie Nelson. "What -a stage," Meyej said. "What a game. What a tremendous atmosphere. There were a bunch of first-rounders on that field playing." UF's national title bid not an accident ATLANTAT destiny? L It's year two for UF coach Urban eyer, who has had unprecedented success in his second year at all of his head coaching stops. It's the fourth year for senior quarterback Chris Leak, who came to UF in 2003 vowing to win a national title. It's the final year for 21 seniors who have experienced the fall of the Gators' SEC dynasty and more emotional turmoil than they bargained for. And come Jan. 8, they'll all be playing for college football's biggest prize -a national championship. And how can anyone truly be surprised? This is a team that has caught, and taken advantage of, seemingly every break it needed on a difficult run through the nation's toughest schedule. There was the roughing-the-passer penalty on Tennessee's J.T. Mapu that negated a touchdown off Leak's interception, allowing the Gators to squeak by Tennessee 21-20 in Knoxville. There was the controversial facemask penalty against Georgia that allowed the Gators to eventually run the clock out and LSU's Jacob Hester being called down just short of the goal line, leading to a JaMarcus Russell fumble and no points for the Tigers. Bryan Jones Bryan Out Loud bjones@alligator.org But it was Jarvis Moss' blocked kick in the final seconds against South Carolina that really shows how special this UF team is. While the Gators are constantly criticized for all the close calls, they have been as dutch and opportunistic as they have been lucky After that win against South Carolina, Jarvis Moss said he knew that UF would somehow make it Glendale, Ariz., to play for the national championship. "There is no doubt about it," Moss said. "Tonight, we just felt it. Everybody on this team just has to believe. I can feel it. Hopefully you guys can feel it." A few weeks later, on a day where a Capital One Bowl berth was still a huge possibility, the Gators got another break when they realized at halftime that Southern California was defeated by UCLA. Like countless other times this season, the Gators capitalized, finishing off Arkansas in the SEC Championship game. Ironically, UF also needed some unlikely breaks to accomplish its first national championship 10 years ago, when several teams fell in the season's final weeks and Arizona State lost in the Rose Bowl. Will UF claim its second national title and become the first school to win national championships in basketball and football in the same year? Who knows. But the Gators certainly deserve to be there. Michigan played a much weaker schedule and didn't win its own conference. And the Wolverines have the Big Ten to blame. If the conference would just pony up and play a conference championship, perhaps Michigan would have had a shot to play its way into the BCS title game instead of sitting on the couch watching SpongeBob, to use a Meyer reference. While the Gators will enter the BCS title game as huge underdogs, and some analysts will already be anointing Ohio State the champion before the two teams take-the field, just relax and enjoy the season this team has treated you to. Something tells me this battle-tested UF team, this team that is filled with players who have gone through ups and downs throughout this season and their entire careers, will find a way to take advantage of whatever situation comes its way. Is it destiny? Yes. Harris Poll RANK TEAMS I Ohio State 2 UF 3 Michigan 4 LS& 5 Louisville 6 Wisconsin 7 USC 8 Oklahoma 9 Boise State 10 Auburn Kim Wilmath / Alligator Staff

The team that couldn't score putting up a 38 spot (second-largest total in Southeastern Conference title game history) on Arkansas? The defense that could not survive Marcus Thomas' absence suffocating Darren McFadden to the tune of 73 yards? The kicker who couldn't throw a rock into Lake Alice and hit water converting a 33-yard field goal? The program that had to escape Ron Zook, sprinting miles ahead. The players who always won games too closely for their own good defeating a top-10 team by double digits. They are still dancing in Gainesville after UF's seventh SEC Championship and first since 2000. Thanks to the Ohioan named Meyer, the Gators (12-1) defeated Arkansas (10-3) 38-28 in front of 73,374 fans. Urban Myth morphed into Urban Bliss when Urban Sprawled into a celebration after turning the Georgia Dome into an orange and blue fiesta. You want team appreciation? That's offensive coordinator Dan Mullen planting his kisser on Tim Tebow's cheek. You need edge "Where's my (expletive) hat?" punter Eric Wilbur asked to nobody in particular, but to everybody in general, as he hunted for a championship fedora. You need emotion? That's Gigi Meyer, 13, who broke down when she finally found her father more than 15 minutes after the contest ended. That's linebacker Brandon Siler who embraced Gigi and held her close for 40 seconds. "I've never seen her cry like that," Coach Urban Meyer exclaimed. You need adrenaline? That's offensive line coach John Hevesy ordering his players into the locker room 20 minutes after the fact. And that's receiver Dallas Baker firing back with: "But I want to party out here." You need SEC champions? Here they are: The Florida Gators. One team, one mission, one blur, one national championship?

It was Leak's first SEC title. canteen to survive the Arizona desert. In what almost seemed unfair, too easy (for once) and certainly too soon a return to greatness, the No. 2 Gators are heading to Arizona. How weak the human mind, how fickle human nature. Just seconds after capturing the elusive SEC Championship, all anyone wanted to talk about was Ginn, and not the kind you drink. But what about some Urban Bourbon? The coach once cried, sometimes sighed and could never get enough first downs for anyone's full content. Yet how quickly everything changes when you appease the masses. Meyer, just two years removed from his dream season in Utah, seems to be moving mountains at every command. Not even mega-legend Steve Spurrier made it to the national championship game until his fifth season in 1996. "I'm beat to death right now. I can't move," Meyer said from atop the podium Saturday, looking like a defeated winner. "What a tremendous game that was." The Gators doused Meyer with a purple Gatorade downpour before time expired, breaking two unwritten rules in the process: Never shower a coach who is still wearing his headset and never soak a coach with the colored stuff. But can you blame UF players accustomed to Outback Bowl steaks for not knowing the Code of Conduct? "It's the greatest day of my life," senior receiver Jemalle Cornelius said. After this one, Baker gyrated in revolutions like a newborn's father. He wore his skin-tight orange tank top that read "I Can Do All Things Through Christ."
