CITY-UNIVERSITY RELATIONS


SG, City Commission talk transportation
COMMISSION DISCUSSES He wasn't that far off, either. '.
PLANS TO REDUCE TRAFFIC. Commissioners have been push- ... .


By DREW HARWELL
Alligator Staff Writer
dharwell@alligator.org

Heavy traffic, sparse parking
and bike safety became both city
and campus issues when mem-
bers of the City Commission and
Student Senate met for a joint dis-
cussion Tuesday night.
During the question-and-answer
session at the Reitz Union Cinema,
city commissioners discussed sev-
eral plans designed to improve
local transportation problems like
congested roads and subpar cycling
conditions.
But because of financial short-
comings, these proposals may
never be fully realized.
One of the students who at-
tended the meeting asked the com-
missioners what the city was doing
to ease parking overcrowding, to
which Commissioner Rick Bryant
responded, "Bicycles."


ing for a more sustainable city for
months now, meaning a down-
scaled reliance on cars and an
increase in walking, cycling and
public transportation.
However, commissioners are
still focusing much of their efforts
and finances on roadway traffic
congestion.
Commissioner Jack Donovan
said in an interview after the meet-
ing that the top three priorities of
the city's transportation plans are
improvements to downtown park-
ing, the bus system and the road-
way traffic grid.
He added that a planned resyn-
chronization of the city's traffic sig-
nals, which would improve traffic
flow by 15 percent, would end up
costing the city about $17 million.
SAnd, though the state and
county would contribute about $7
million toward the project, the city
would have to cover the rest.

Krishnas to cut Styrofoam


Rape case dismissed

Sheriff drops investigation


By RANDI BERNFELD
Alligator Contributing Writer


By summertime, the Krishna Lunch program
on the Plaza of Americas will serve rice and beans
on plates made from sugarcane.
Kalakantha Das, the director of the
International Society for Krishna Consciousness,
said his organization decided to look into buying
more environmentally friendly plates, cups and
utensils after hearing people complain about their
Styrofoam cups, which are not compostable.
Unlike Styrofoam, the sugarcane products
break down safely and quickly into raw materi-
als. Eventually, they disappear into the environ-
ment.
"This will be a model of an environmentally
sustainable business," said Krishna Lunch direc-
tor Jonathan Banks. He added that the utensils

will be made from bagasse, the fibrous remains
of sugarcane after the liquid has been crushed out
of it. Bagasse products look and feel like paper
plates and can be used for hot foods and drinks.
The Styrofoam cups Krishnas use now take up
to 1,000 years to decompose, while bagasse takes
30 to 90 days.
On Additionally, unlike petroleum
Campus products such as plastic, bagasse is
often used as a fuel source for sugar
mills when burned in quantity.
Lonnie O. Ingram, the director of the Florida
Center for Renewable Chemicals and Fuels, said
that when the material is burned, the resulting
carbon dioxide emission equals the amount of
this gas the sugarcane plant used'from the atmo-
sphere during its growing phase.
"Thus, the process is greenhouse-gas neutral,"
Ingram said.

One of this month's panic-in-
ducing rape cases has been closed
because police say the victim gave
false information and later refused
to cooperate with investigators.
Lt. Keith Faulk, the Sheriff's
Office spokesman, said investigat-
ing the woman's claims siphoned
resources from other cases and
cost taxpayers money.
"What she initially told re-
sponding deputies was proven
to not have occurred," Faulk said.
"She later recanted her earlier
statements."
According to the Sheriff's
Office, the woman reported she
was attacked Jan. 16 while walk-
ing her dog.


Nine churches in
Marion County have
been vandalized or
burglarized in the past
two months. Police
say the cases are
probably connected.
See story, pg. 4.


She said she was then forced
into her Reserve at Kanapaha
apartment at gunpoint and raped.
When the victim reported she
was attacked, news of two other
local rapes had recently made
front-page headlines.
Although
authorities have
now dismissed
the 21-year-old
woman's allega-
tions, Faulk said
the case could
be reopened
Faulk if the victim
becomes more
forthcoming and consistent with
her story.
"We will respond to any alle-
gation of criminal incident we
don't want to victimize the vic-
tims," Faulk said.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

SG to add 40 computers to its free


By JOANNA BLAZ
Alligator Writer

The Student Senate passed a bill Tuesday to
provide UF students with some new comput-
ers in the Student Government Computer Lab,
at a cost of $72,000.
The bill asks for more than $56,000 to fund
about 40 new computers, and more than
$10,000 for a new printer. The money would
come from SG reserves, its rainy-day fund.
"(The lab) is constantly being used; there
is always a line for the printers," said Student
Body Vice President Arturo Armand, who pre-
sented the bill. "They need to be replaced."


He said SG plans to transfer the equipment
to other areas and organizations.
Michael Viola, SG's information technol-
ogy specialist, said the new computers would
likely be put in during Spring Break and are
expected to last four to five years.
The computers in the lab, located on the
third floor of the Reitz Union, have been freez-
ing and are becoming slower, Viola said.
The cost of the computers and print-
ers caused some SG executives to question
whether the lab is worth the cost.
But ultimately, the leaders decided the ser-
vice was worth it.
"The computer lab is definitely one of the


most popular services that the student body
responds to," added Student Body Treasurer
Ryan Moseley, one of the bill's authors.
The lab upgrades will
also include a new server
that will allow SG to track
and monitor the amount of
paper used in the lab.
Although SG will have to
dip into its reserves to fund
the computers, Moseley
Moseley said putting a page limit on
printing would save about
$150,000 over three years.
Also, the deadline to register a political


printing lab
party for the Spring elections is Thursday.
Leaders of the two registered parties the
Gator Party and the Pants Party said their
parties had yet to develop specific platforms.
Bruce Haupt, presidential candidate for the
Pants Party, said in an interview that his party
has a few goals in mind, like pushing for better
lines of communication between UF students
and administrators.
Daniel Hobbs, president of the
Gator Party, said he couldn't comment
on his party's candidates or platform.
The Gator Party will announce its presiden-
tial candidate tonight, according to a press
release.

Churches vandalized


By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Since Nov. 29, nine churches
have been vandalized or burglar-
ized in Marion County, just south of
Gainesville.
Susan Livoti, the Marion County
Sheriff's Office spokeswoman, said be-
cause four of the break-ins happened
this month, she believes the crimes are
related.
Local Officials are hoping
News for a break in the cases
because the most recent
crime against a Marion County church
was caught on tape.
"The only leads we have so far are
pictures from a video that was taken at
Grace Presbyterian," Livoti said.
The incident at Grace Presbyterian
occurred Thursday at about 2 a.m.
The vandal or vandals did not man-
age to gain entry to the church but did
break four window screens and dam-
age a door while trying.
Police said the would-be burglar in
the Grace Presbyterian video is a white
male wearing a tan overcoat and red
baseball cap.


The surveillance tape shows him
trying to break open the church's
doors, Livoti said.
While all nine churches suffered
damage, only four were actually
robbed.
According to a document released
by the Marion County Sheriff's Office,
some of the missing items include:
*Two Sony Vaio laptops
*A cedar table
*An outdoor air conditioning unit
*Food
All of the churches sustained dam-
age in the break-ins.
Victory Baptist Church, in South
Central Marion County, suffered stains
from a fire extinguisher sprayed inside
its gym, while the McIntosh United
Methodist Church, on the border of
Alachua County, had graffiti sprayed
across the outside walls of its fellow-
ship hall.
Livoti said Marion County officers
have been patrolling the streets sur-
rounding churches in hopes of catch-
ing the perpetrator.
"Deputies will be checking church-
es, but we don't have any detailed
strategies set up," Livoti said.

Police address discrimination at SG-city meeting


By ALEX TIEGEN

A Student Senate official
asked the Gainesville Police
Department to respond to com-
plaints of discrimination against
minorities at the joint City
Commission and Student Senate
meeting Tuesday.


Senate Pro Tempore Samuel
Green said minority students
were concerned that officers on
horses patrol downtown clubs
with a larger crowd of minorities
more heavily than other clubs.
Police Lt. Lonnie Scott, who
was the first one to request
horses downtown, said he would

City Commissioner Jeanna
Mastrodicasa said minority


horses' presence at clubs when
she was campaigning for her

talk but didn't think police dis-
criminated against minorities.
"There are nights when I've
seen a horse break up a big group
of white people," she said.

Ex-dean charged in child porn case


By DREW HARWELL
Alligator Staff.Writer
dharwell@alligator.org
A former UF associate dean was
charged with two counts of felony child
abuse Friday after police found evidence
of the man's involvement with Internet
child pornography, officials said.
John Patrick Shannon, 44, who
worked as the associate dean of admin-
istrative affairs for the Levin College of
Law, is charged with participating in
online chats encouraging the exploitation
and sexual abuse of children, said State
Attorney's Office spokesman Spencer
Mann.
Mann said an arrest warrant will most
likely be issued in the next few days.
The investigation began after police


arrested High Springs resident Gary J.
Norsworthy, 49, for sexually abusing two
boys under the age of 12.
In Norworthy's possession were
roughly 3,300 pages of Internet discus-
sion on sexual activ-
ity with children, said
Gainesville Police
Department Corp.
Mitch Nixon, who ex-
amined the evidence.
He said police also
found videos of eight
Mann boys all between
the ages of 15 months
and 12 years being sexually abused.
Norsworthy 'was sentenced to 40 years
in prison for the abuse, and his Internet
conversations with a man known online
as "johngainesville" led police to file a


search warrant against Shannon.
On July 27,. GPD officers and mem-
bers of the North Florida Internet Crimes
Against Children Task Force raided
Shannon's home and office and confis-
cated four computers, including the com-
puter he used for work on campus.
No child pornography was found on
that computer, Nixon said, but the others
contained sexually explicit images that
police spent months examining.
UF spokesman Steve Orlando said
Shannon was placed on administrative
leave by the university on the day of the
raid, and on the following day, Shannon
resigned for "personal reasons."
Nixon, a father of four, said Shannon
has a son who was 2 at the time of the
search, but police do not believe the child
was abused.

Editorial


643 days left

Republicans line up to

start race
yesterday, we discussed several of the Democrats
who've come forth seeking the presidential nomina-
tion. Today, as promised, we'll showcase the other
side. Yesterday's mix included a woman, a half-black man
and a crazy guy. Today's list is mostly ... old white men.
But what did you expect from the right? So we've includ-
ed a few more Republican superstars who would make the
primary race a bit more interesting. In no particular order,
onto the candidates!
The current frontrunner for the Republican Party is for-
mer New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani. He was the
guy who led the city through the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks--
earning him the unofficial title of "America's Mayor." He
was mayor for eight,years of a pretty left-leaning city and
he's a pretty moderate Republican. Actually, he's down-
right liberal on many social issues, including gay marriage,
gun control and abortion.
He hasn't officially announced yet, but he's formed
an -"exploratory committee," which is really just code for
"fundraising Web site." He's got the star power and the
name recognition to carry the nomination but is he the
most qualified guy for the job?
John McCain, the Arizona senator, is in second place in
just about. every poll, even though he hasn't officially an-
nounced his intent to run yet. He's probably most famous
to UF students as the guy who tossed the coin for the Bowl
Championship Series Game earlier this month, but in a
more official capacity, he's been serving in Congress for
more than two decades. He's been wildly popular fbr sev-
eral years but he was one of the first to stand up in favor
of troops increases in Iraq. Perhaps that's what's caused
him to slip in the polls.
Sam Brownback of Kansas has also entered the race. He's
probably most famous for his nickname Sam "Brokeback"
Brownback, a reference to his strong anti-gay stance. He's
one of the most conservative people in the running.
Call us crazy, but after electing Democrats to majority in
both the House and the Senate, America probably won't do
a total 180 and elect a right-winger like him.
And we can't help but wonder if Condoleezza Rice is
going to stick her toe in. To say the least, it'd be pretty in-
teresting to see a face-off between her and Hillary Clinton.
She's probably been pretty much running the White House
for the past few years anyway as secretary of state. Since
she was national security adviser before that, it's a pretty
safe bet she knows how to run both foreign and domestic
aspects of the nation.
We can't blame her for not announcing any intention to
run yet she's got a lot of other stuff on her plate but
we'd be very surprised if she keeps mum for too much
longer.
And of'course, we have to throw a foreigner into the
mix several online petitions have popped up, trying
to overturn the law that a person must be U.S.-born to
run for president. Why? So everyone's favorite Austrian
bodybuilder-tured-actor-tured-politician Arnold "the
Governator" Schwarzenegger can sign up. It sounds like a
great idea to us.
And just think if he actually won his re-election cam-
paign slogan could be, "I'll be back."

Letter to the


SG changes can start with the Spring elections
Does Student Government need streamlining and revamp-
ing? Obviously.
However, Ms. Pandey was incorrect in her assertions about
the failures of SG. She claims it needs to be "shaved down to be
more efficient" because the Student Body president only has
one vote on the Board of Trustees meaning that the student
body has "little to no voice in the goings-on of the university."
To create change, one voice is all you need.
The problem is that SG has historically partnered with the


administration more than the students. Rather than serve as a
voice and representative of students, Student Body presidents
have been more of a liaison informing the bigwigs of the "go-
ings-on" of the students.
When it comes to the Board of Trustees, the SG president
has two options. The first is that he can earn the "respect" of
the board for his future initiatives. The other option is to real-
ize that he is in office for only one year and there's no time
to waste earning "respect." The students are SG's constituents.
Not Bernie. Not the board. From the point the president is


sworn in, he is the student's voice. When he chooses the first
option, we lose our voice. SG could be an incredibly potent
voice. Speaking on behalf of students and their problems with
UF, SG could do a great deal of good.
Hell, SG could even gasp partner with the Alligator to
collect information and deliver a weekly column updating stu-
dents kiss and make up, guys. Students could have a great
voice. They just need to get off their asses and vote.

Rape victim speaks


to male audience


* THE SPEAKER USED SKY-
DIVING AS THERAPY.

By YVONNE AYALA
Alligator Contributing Writer

Kellie Greene didn't realize the
impact being raped would have on
her life until years later.
On Jan. 18, 1994, Greene was
raped by a stranger in her Orlando
apartment.
On Tuesday, 13 years after the
attack, Greene shared her struggle
as a rape victim with an audience
of about 100 at UF's Hillel.
"I started to speak up when I
realized how ignorant I was about
the whole system," Greene said.
"Who better to know the system
than someone who was on the
receiving end of it?"
At the meeting, she spoke to
male students about supporting
people in their lives who have
been affected by sexual assault or
abuse.
"Usually when I. request ... to
speak with men, about 20 or 25
people show up," she said of the
turnout.


Spring rushees for UF frater-
nities were required to attend
Greene's talk.
Chris Allison, a rushee of Sigma
Pi Fraternity, said Greek organiza-
tions set up different speeches so
people are aware of what's go-
ing on and how they should and
should not behave.
At the time of Greene's rape,
Florida did not have funds to sup-
port forensic exams for cases with-
out suspects, like her own case.
She lobbied for the 1995 leg-
islation that prohibits hospitals
from charging for a forensic exam.
Greene said that when she was
charged $800 for her exam, she
refused to pay.
In 2000, Greene co-authored
the Florida Sexual Predators Act,
which mandated consecutive sen-
tences for convicted sex offenders
and murderers in prison who are
found guilty of subsequent of-
fenses.
She also founded Speaking Out
Against Rape, a nonprofit organi-
zation offering sexual awareness
seminars.
Every year, Greene said, she cel-
ebrates the anniversary of her rape

assault Tuesday evening inside Hillel's Norman H. Lipoff Hall.


by skydiving.
"I was really tired of still being
reminded of that day, of waking
up in the morning and reliving
every conversation that I had, ev-
ery place that I went, every minute
detail up until the rape happened,


and then I would relive that,"
Greene said. "I decided I needed
to reclaim the day for myself, so I
went skydiving."
She chose skydiving to over-
come her fears and inspire others
to share her experience.


"The rapist attacked me from
behind, and when you go tandem-
skydiving, you have someone
strapped to your back," Greene
said. "It helped me get used to
having people in my space again
and feeling safe with it."

plans with the city's projections
for better cycling paths and less
urban sprawl brings about a fi-
nancial dilemma for the city.
In the post-meeting inter-
view, Donovan said the city has
planned about $92 million in
roadway projects but only has
about $30 million in available


funds.
Though he said the money
could come
from a pro-
posed county-
wide gas tax,
he admitted

Donovan the projects
may be diffi-
cult to manage.


"We're stretched really thin,"
he said.
As for parking limitations,
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan said
it was the developer's respon-
sibility to plan enough parking
spaces for its residents.
"For the most part, we allow
the developers to dictate what
they think is best," she said. "If
they think it's undersourced,
it's their responsibility."


Lunch to be served on sugarcane plates


KRISHNA, from page 1

Many scientists attribute global warming to in-

he began thinking of a way to use them on campus.

planning the switch for four months, but logistics are
delaying its execution.

"Not only will the students be sparing animals

Gators remain optimistic despite low expectations


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Writer
While the past has been bright, and the
future may be even brighter, don't expect
the UF men's tennis team to accept this
year's dim predictions.
The No. 17 Gators will look to make
a strong debut as they take on Central
Florida this afternoon at 3 at the Ring Tennis
Complex.
.Normally, this might be a match UF
would look past to focus on Sunday's show-
down with 2004 national champion Baylor.
The Gators are rebuilding though, hav-
ing lost six of their top eight players from'
last year.
Three freshmen will be featured promi-
nently in the lineup this season Geoffrey


Barton, Daniel Cash and Jesse Levine.
One of the freshmen, however, will not be
making his dual-match debut today.
Levine, likely to play No. 1 singles this
season, is playing in the International Tennis
Championship in Delray Beach, an ATP
event.
Junior Greg Ouellette, ranked No. 16
nationally in singles, will play at the No. 1
position instead.
Ouellette blamed poor preparation and
a bothersome back for his poor showing
in the Southeastern Conference Indoor
Tournament, but said he's ready to go now.
"Last year, we had the best team in the
country but ended up not living up to ex-
pectations," said Ouellette, who exited the
SEC Tourney in the second round. "We've
prepared better this year than any other year


"I think we have to understand
who we are. We're trying to be in
the top 25. We have to be upfront
and excited about it."
Andy Jackson
UF men's tennis coach

I've been here."
In 2006, UF started the season No. 2 and
quickly climbed to the top ranking but lost in
the round of 16 in the NCAA Tournament.
This year, Coach Andy Jackson is not
going to sugarcoat the situation for his play-
ers.
"I'd much prefer to be in a situation
where I can tell our team, 'Look, we're try-


ing to win the NCAA (Tournament) this
year,'" Jackson said. "But you have to be
frank and up front, or your players can tell
when you're just telling one.
"I think we have to understand who we
are. We're trying to be in the top 25. We have
to be up front and excited about it."
HELP ON ITS WAY: The Gators were ranked
No. 1 in the Class of 2007 winter recruiting
rankings released by Tennisrecruiting.net on
Monday.
UF has three commitments -- two blue-
chip prospects and a five-star prospect.
The two blue-chippers are Jeff Dadamo
(Tampa), ranked No. 5 in the Class of 2007,
and No. 8 Tyler Hochwalt (Scottsdale, Ariz.).
The five-star prospect is No. 20 Erik Corace
(Naples).

No. 1 Gators host improved, surging Commodores


ALLIGATOR
www.alligatorSports.org


By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
jmarina@alligator.org

After back-to-back road games, the No. 1
UF men's basketball team returns home for a
game it has been waiting months for.
"I think when we play Vanderbilt, every-
body comes to play," forward Corey Brewer
said. "This is a game we all circle on our
calendar."
He's not joking.
The Commodores entered the top 25 for
the first time in three years this week after
being pegged as a Southeastern Conference
pushover in preseason rankings.
Brewer exhibits a particular interest in
tonight's game when the Gators (19-2, 6-0
SEC) host the Commodores (15-6, 5-2 SEC)
at 7 because he almost chose to attend the
Nashville school.
"Freshman and sophomore year (of high
school), Vandy was the school to go to be-
cause it was so dose to home," said Brewer, a
native of Portland, Tenn. "It is in the SEC, and
I kind of thought I might go there."
Interestingly enough, one of Vanderbilt's
starters considered coming to UF when he
was looking to transfer from LSU after the
2004-05 season.
After sitting out last season per NCAA
transfer rules, forward Ross Neltner is now a


major component of the Commodores' line-
up, averaging 10.3 points and six rebounds
per game.
"I told (Vanderbilt coach Kevirt Stallings)
when Ross made his decision to go to
Vanderbilt that he was getting a very good
player," UF coach Billy Donovan said.
"I know it was coming down to us and
Vanderbilt. It certainly looks like he made a
terrific decision because he's having a great
year for them."
"I think when we play Vanderbilt,
everybody comes to play. This is
a game we all circle on our calen-
dar."
Corey Brewer
UF forward

Vanderbilt also has talented players in
forward Derrick Byars and guard Shan
Foster, who are averaging 31 points and 10.1
rebounds per game combined.
Not to mention, the Commodores could
give 3-point specialist Lee Humphrey and the
rest of the Gators backcourt some competi-
tion from behind the arc.
Vanderbilt is hitting a league-best 10.5 3-

Wins leave champs lost for words


Interviewing the No. 1 UF men's
basketball team is about as exciting
as watching potted plants sprout on
the windowsill.
The problem? These guys win too often
and by too many points. After hearing the
same, "How do you guys stop being so
good?" question for the 1,678,548th time,
Billy Donovan and Co. have conditioned
themselves to answer in drone-like coach
- or player speak. So, until the Gators
devise an ingenious plan for not being
so dominant, we'll have a field day with
a new installment of the long overdue
"What They Meant To Say."
These are actual quotes. Do not imitate
this translation process without adult su-
pervision.

Forward Joakim Noah on UF's level
of play:
WHAT HE SAID: "Are we playing our best
basketball? I don't think so...I don't
think we've played our best game yet."
WHAT HE MEANT TO SAY: We started

showing signs
when we defeat-
ed Prairie View
by 61 points, but
we still haven't
shut out a team.
Have any of us
recorded a triple
double? A qua-
druple double?
The Gator boys


are lukewarm right now. This isn't even
better than foreplay.

Donovan on the national hype sur-
rounding the Gators:
WHAT HE SAID: "I've told our guys that
the stuff they hear outside the locker
room, it's all poison.
"You start believing that stuff and
taking it in, I think all it does is rob you
of your talent, rob you of your focus, rob

UF RECRUITING

Five-star saf
By MIKE MCCALL
Alligator Writer

Reggie Nelson was the mayor of Hit
City, but Major Wright may be the sheriff.
The 6-foot-i, 204-pound safety from Fort
Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas High has
wowed recruiters and fans alike with his
knack for big hits and will bring that ability
to UF next season.
Wright verbally committed to the Gators
on Tuesday morning, choosing UF instead
of Ohio State, Miami and Notre Dame.
"Oh, hell hit you," Aquinas coach
George Smith said. "He's a big hitter."
"I'm going to play at the University of
Florida," said Wright, rated the No. 4 safety
in the 2007 class and a five-star prospect
by Scout.com. "It's a great coaching staff,
nice environment and just a place I think
I fit in."
Wright will bring his tough, aggressive
style to the Gators' secondary alongside ris-
ing seniors Kyle Jackson and Tony Joiner.
"I see Major being more of a strong
safety type who plays with a linebacker
mentality," Scout.com recruiting analyst
Jamie Newberg said. "He's a big-time hitter
and a great athlete."


ety picks UF
Wright's skill and leadership helped
Aquinas to three-straight appearances in
the Class 5A state championship game.
Each season ended in a loss to Lakeland
High which features six UF commits and
a possible seventh in five-star defensive
tackle John Brown who
is still undecided.
Despite the painful
losses Lakeland won
S 45-42 in double overtime
.- when the Raiders were
S' stopped on the 1-yard
line this year Wright
Wright says he has a good rela-
tionship with the com-
mits from Lakeland.
"I know a couple of them," Wright
said. "The game doesn't make me dislike
a person." .
Wright had to make several adjustments
to earn the distinction of the No. 4 safety.
"He's improved his coverage skills this
year," Smith said. "Last year he was more
trying to just run people over all the time,
so that's greatly improved and certainly
will continue to improve."

pointers per game.
p Right now, they are probably playing
their best basketball of the year," Donovan
said. "I think we'll see a team come in here
with a lot of confidence, and they should
have a lot of confidence because of what
they've been able to do on the road the last


several games."
Vanderbilt upset then-No. 16 Tennessee
on Jan. 10 and No. 10 Alabama on Jan. 17 at
home and followed with victories at No. 25
Kentucky on Jan. 20 and at No. 21 LSU just
four days later.
The Commodores were known for master-
ing the Princeton offense, but come tonight,
Gators fans will see a new scheme.
"They're playing totally different than


uonovan


they were a year ago,"
Donovan said. "The floor
is spaced, they're doing
some backdoor cuts. They
do have some Princeton
concepts but not the same
offense that everybody
watched for the last several
years."


The Princeton offense is known to be a


conundrum for defenses, so UF's players
couldn't be happier about the Commodores'
change.
"It was tough because they had so many
plays," forward Al Horford said. "I guess
we're better off now."
If the Gators win their 13th in a row to-
night, it will be the first time in school history
that UF has earned 20 wins in a season before
the end of January.


Gators have room for more


RECRUIT, from page 19
Wright is the eighth five-star
commit and the 25th overall for
the Gators, who already had the
No. 1 class before he committed.
"This is putting (UF) in a dif-
ferent stratosphere from every-
body else right now," Newberg
said. "Not only do they have


great players but great quantity
too."
UF is still in the hunt for five-
star prospects
Brown, receivers

and Deonte
Football Thompson, cor-
nerback Ronald
Johnson and de-
fensive end Allen Bailey.

you of everything."
WHAT HE MEANT TO SAY: Look what happened to
Jack Berry. He used to be a solid contributor in the
last 8 seconds of games until all of that Subway
Jack crap.
People started chanting his name, he fed into
the publicity like a rabid dog and the next thing
you know, Subway pulls its promotion and Jack
starts missing layups during warm-ups.
Donovan on whether the Gators have improved
at a desirable pace:
WHAT HE SAID: "I think we've taken strides."
WHAT HE MEANT TO SAY: The other day, Lee


scowled while saying "Damn" under his breath,
and Joakim has begun shaving every other week.
Sounds like a productive year to me.
Donovan on UF's improved shot selection:
WHAT HE SAID: "Yes, up to this point and time
we've taken good shots. But it doesn't mean we're
going to continue taking good shots."
WHAT HE MEANT TO SAY: Continuing to take good
shots is inversely contingent on the amount of
minutes I give Dan Werner.
Donovan on expectations:
WHAT HE SAID: "I can't predict the future."
WHAT HE MEANT TO SAY: Who will we dismantle in
the Sweet 16 West Virginia or Northern Iowa?
It's anybody's guess, but I think we have to do
that.

PLANS TO REDUCE TRAFFIC. Commissioners have been pushBy DREW HARWELL Alligator Staff Writer dharwell@alligator.org Heavy traffic, sparse parking and bike safety became both city and campus issues when members of the City Commission and Student Senate met for a joint discussion Tuesday night. During the question-and-answer session at the Reitz Union Cinema, city commissioners discussed several plans designed to improve local transportation problems like congested roads and subpar cycling conditions. But because of financial shortcomings, these proposals may never be fully realized.

However, commissioners are still focusing much of their efforts and finances on roadway traffic congestion. Commissioner Jack Donovan said in an interview after the meeting that the top three priorities of the city's transportation plans are improvements to downtown parking, the bus system and the roadway traffic grid. He added that a planned resynchronization of the city's traffic signals, which would improve traffic flow by 15 percent, would end up costing the city about $17 million.

Krishnas to cut Styrofoam By RANDI BERNFELD Alligator Contributing Writer By summertime, the Krishna Lunch program on the Plaza of Americas will serve rice and beans on plates made from sugarcane. Kalakantha Das, the director of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, said his organization decided to look into buying more environmentally friendly plates, cups and utensils after hearing people complain about their Styrofoam cups, which are not compostable. Unlike Styrofoam, the sugarcane products break down safely and quickly into raw materials. Eventually, they disappear into the environment. "This will be a model of an environmentally sustainable business," said Krishna Lunch director Jonathan Banks. He added that the utensils will be made from bagasse, the fibrous remains of sugarcane after the liquid has been crushed out of it. Bagasse products look and feel like paper plates and can be used for hot foods and drinks. The Styrofoam cups Krishnas use now take up to 1,000 years to decompose, while bagasse takes 30 to 90 days. 0 n Additionally, unlike petroleum Campus products such as plastic, bagasse is often used as a fuel source for sugar mills when burned in quantity. Lonnie 0. Ingram, the director of the Florida Center for Renewable Chemicals and Fuels, said that when the material is burned, the resulting carbon dioxide emission equals the amount of this gas the sugarcane plant used-from the atmosphere during its growing phase. "Thus, the process is greenhouse-gas neutral," Ingram said.

Lt. Keith Faulk, the Sheriff's Office spokesman, said investigating the woman's claims siphoned resources from other cases and cost taxpayers money. "What she itially told responding deputies was proven to not have occurred," Faulk said. "She later recanted her earlier statements." According to the Sheriff's Office, the woman reported she was attacked Jan. 16 while walking her dog. investigation She said she was then forced into her Reserve at Kanapaha apartment at gunpoint and raped.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 31, 2007 111 ALLIGATOR, 3 STUDENT GOVERNMENT SG to add 40 COMputers t0 its free printing lab By JOANNA BLAZ Alligato r Writer The Student Senate passed a bill Tuesday to provide UF students with some new computers in the Student Government Computer Lab, at a cost of $72,000. The bill asks for more than $56,000 to fund about 40 new computers, and more than $10,000 for a new printer. The money would come from SG reserves, its rainy-day fund. "(The lab) is constantly being used; there is always a line for the printers," said Student Body Vice President Arturo Armand, who presented the bill. "They need to be replaced." He said SG plans to transfer the equipment to other areas and organizations. Michael Viola, SG's information technology specialist, said the new computers would likely be put in during Spring Break and are expected to last four to five years. The computers in the lab, located on the third floor of the Reitz Union, have been freezing and are becoming slower, Viola said. The cost of the computers and printers caused some SG executives to question whether the lab is worth the cost. But ultimately, the leaders decided the service was worth it. "The computer lab is definitely one of the most popular services that the student body responds to," added Student Body Treasurer Ryan Moseley, one of the bill's authors. The lab upgrades will also include a new server that will allow SG to track and monitor the amount of paper used in the lab. AlthoughSG willhave to dip into its reserves to fund the computers, Moseley Moseley said putting a page limit on printing would save about $150,000 over three years. Also, the deadline to register a political party for the Spring elections is Thursday. Leaders of the two registered parties -the Gator Party and the Pants Party -said their parties had yet to develop specific platforms. Bruce Haupt, presidential candidate for the Pants Party, said in an interview that his party has a few goals in mind, like pushing for better lines of communication between UF students and administrators. Daniel Hobbs, president of the Gator Party, said he couldn't comment on his party's candidates or platform. The Gator Party will announce its presidential candidate tonight, according to a press release. 2007 .4 5 A BRING TO: The Independent Fla. Alligator 1105 W.

4, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 31, 2007 Churches vandalized By KATIE EMMETS Alligator Contributing Writer Since Nov. 29, nine churches have been vandalized or burglarized in Marion County, just south of Gainesville. Susan Livoti, the Marion County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman, said because four of the break-ins happened this month, she believes the crimes are related. Locag Officials are hoping News for a break in the cases because the most recent crime against a Marion County church was caught on tape. "The only leads we have so far are pictures from a video that was taken at Grace Presbyterian," Livoti said. The incident at Grace Presbyterian occurred Thursday at about 2 a.m. The vandal or vandals did not manage to gain entry to the church but did break four window screens and damage a door while trying. Police said the would-be burglar in the Grace Presbyterian video is a white male wearing a tan overcoat and red baseball cap. The surveillance tape shows him trying to break open the church's doors, Livoti said. While all nine churches suffered damage, only four were actually robbed. According to a document released by the Marion County Sheriff's Office, some of the missing items include: *Two Sony Vaio laptops A cedar table -An outdoor air conditioning unit, @Food All of the churches sustained damage in the break-ins. Victory Baptist Church, in South Central Marion County, suffered stains from a fire extinguisher sprayed inside its gym, while the McIntosh United Methodist Church, on the border of Alachua County, had graffiti sprayed across the outside walls of its fellowship hall. Livoti said Marion County officers have been patrolling the streets surrounding churches in hopes of catching the perpetrator. "Deputies will be checking churches, but we don't have any detailed strategies set up," Livoti said.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 31, 2007 N ALLIGATOR, 5 LOCAL NEWS Ex-7deanm charged in child porn case By DREW HARWELL Alligator Staff. Writer dharwell@alligator.org A former UF associate dean was charged with two counts of felony child abuse Friday after police found evidence of the man's involvement with Internet child pornography, officials said. John Patrick Shannon, 44, who worked as the associate dean of administrative affairs for the Levin College of Law, is charged with participating in online chats encouraging the exploitation and sexual abuse of children, said State Attorney's Office spokesman Spencer Mann. Mann said an arrest warrant will most likely be issued in the next few days. The investigation began after police arrested High Springs resident Gary J. Norsworthy, 49, for sexually abusing two boys under the age of 12. In Norworthy's possession were roughly 3,300 pages of Internet discussion on sexual activity with children, said Gainesville Police Department Corp. Mitch Nixon, who examined the evidence. He said police also found videos of eight boys -all between the ages of 15 months and 12 years -being sexually abused. Norsworthy was sentenced to 40 years in prison for the abuse, and his Internet conversations with a man known online as "johngainesville" led police to file a search warrant against Shannon. On July 27, GPD officers and members of the North Florida Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force raided Shannon's home and office and confiscated four computers, including the computer he used for work on campus. No child pornography was found on that computer, Nixon said, but the others contained sexually explicit images that police spent months examining. UF spokesman Steve Orlando said Shannon was placed on administrative leave by the university on the day of the raid, and on the following day, Shannon resigned for "personal reasons." Nixon, a father of four, said Shannon has a son who was 2 at the time of the search, but police do not believe the child was abused.

6, ALLIGATOR N WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 31, 2007 643 days left Republicans line up to start race Yesterday, we discussed several of the Democrats who've come forth seeking the presidential nomination. Today, as promised, we'll showcase the other side. Yesterday's mix included a woman; a half-black man and a crazy guy. Today's list is mostly .old white men. But what did you expect from the right? So we've included a few more Republican superstars who would make the primary race a bit more interesting. In no particular order, onto the candidates! The current frontrunner for the Republican Party is former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani. He was the guy who led the city through the Sept. 11 terrorist attacksearning him the unofficial title of "America's Mayor." He was mayor for eightyears of a pretty left-leaning city and he's a pretty moderate Republican. Actually, he's downright liberal on many -social issues, including gay marriage, gun control and abortion. He hasn't officially announced yet, but he's formed an -"exploratory counittee," which is really just code for "fundraising Web site." He's got the star power and the name recognition to carry the nomination -but is he the most qualified guy for the job? John McCain, the Arizona senator, is in second place in just about every poll, even though -he hasn't officially announced his intent to run yet. He's probably most famous to UF students -as the guy who tossed the coin for the Bowl Championship Series Game earlier this month, but in a more official capacity, he's been serving in Congress for more than two decades. He's been wildly popular for several years -but he was one of the first to stand up in favor of troops increases in Iraq. Perhaps that's what's caused him to slip in the polls. Sam Brownback of Kansas has also entered the race. He's probably most famous for his nickname Sam "Brokeback" Brownback, a reference to his strong anti-gay stance. He's one of the most conservative people in the running. .Call us crazy, but after electing Democrats to majority in both the House and the Senate, America probably won't do a total 180 and elect a right-winger like him. And we can't help but wonder if Condoleezza Rice is going to stick her toe in. To say the least, it'd be pretty interesting to see a face-off between her and Hillary Clinton. She's probably been pretty much running the White House for the past few years anyway as secretary of state. Since she was national security adviser before that, it's a pretty safe bet she knows how to run both foreign and domestic aspects of the nation. We can't blame her for not announcing any intention to run yet -she's got a lot of other stuff on her plate -but we'd be very surprised if she keeps mum for too much longer. And of'course, we have to throw a foreigner into the mix -several online petitions have popped up, trying to overturn the law that a person must be U.S.-born to run for president. Why? So everyone's favorite Austrian bodybuilder-turned-actor-turned-politician Arnold "the Governator" Schwarzenegger can sign up. It sounds like a great idea to us. And just think if he actually won -his re-election campaign slogan could be, "I'll be back." the independent florida aligto .Jessica Riffel EDITOR KatLasowEi MANAGING EDITOR Jessica Holland OPINIONS EDITOR Tom Durrepberger Leigh Shapiro .EDITORIAL BOARD The Alligator encourages comments from readers.

No, it's not OxyContin or cocaine. I'm talking about cigarettes. With a new policy stating that you can't smoke within 50 feet of a building,'it becomes very clear what the administration thinks about smokers. What's next? I guess one not-too-far-off day you won't be able to smoke on campus at all. Imagine living at Graham Hall and having to walk all the way down to Archer Road to smoke. Screw allowing you to break your own habit -UF is determined to do it for you. Now, I'm not a smoker. I think cigarettes are way too overrated. If you've watched TV in the last few years, you probably know that smoking puts all kinds of dangerous substances in your body. And to top it off, chronic smokers generally don't smell all that wonderful, and the smoke can yellow your teeth. I just got my braces off not too long ago -and there's no way I'm going to screw up my teeth by sucking on a cancer stick. But even though I'm not a smoker, even though I despise cigarettes for what they are and what they've done to some people who'are very close to me -like my aunt, who has emphysema -I can't stand people who treat smokers like pariahs. Everyone has certain rights that nobody should be able to hamper or deny. One of those includes the right to take your life and body into your own hands. If people want to cake up their lungs with tar, that's their business. If they want to drink until their livers rot, that's their business. Rules aimed at banning or partially banning those kinds of habits ultimately trample on other people's right to live how they want to live. Dan Burroughs Dan Demands letters@alligator.org So what are the smoking-ban supporters saying about it? They argue that secondhand smoke is going to kill them and everyone else on campus. Yeah, as if Johnny lighting up is going to form some huge toxic cloud that envelops all of Turlington, suffocating the life out of innocent bystanders. Give me break. It gets even more ridiculous when people start to throw around a bunch of statistics -and you know that statistics can make even a dumb argument seem like a good one. They say each year, X number of people are killed by secondhand smoke and X number of people's lives are ruined by standing next to a smoker for more than 2.43 seconds. To be seriously affected by secondhand smoke, a person would have to be sitting right in front of a smoker for an extended period of time, every time that person smoked. My God, you'd breathe in way more fumes walking down Southwest 13th Avenue around 5 p.m. than you would by walking past a smoker. And if it makes anyone feel any better, your body is fully capable of repairing a lot of -damage caused by a small amount of secondhand smoke in the time it takes you to get a full night's sleep. There's no real reason to restrict smoking on campus, but if you don't like inhaling smoke, you are hopefully mature enought to ask the smoker to walk away -or you can move on your own.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 31, 2007 0 ALLIGATOR, 7 "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" SG changes can start with the Spring elections Does Student Government need streamlining and revamping? Obviously. However, Ms. Pandey was incorrect in her assertions about the failures of SG. She claims it needs to be "shaved: down to be more efficient" because the Student Body president only has one vote on the Board of Trustees -meaning that the student body has "little to no voice in the goings-on of the university." To create change, one voice is all you need. The problem is that SG has historically partnered with the administration more than the students. Rather than serve as a voice and representative of students, Student Body presidents have been more of a liaison informing the bigwigs of the "goings-on" of the students. When it comes to the Board of Trustees, the SG president has two options. The first is that he can earn the "respect" of the board for his future initiatives. The other option is to realize that he is in office for only one year -and there's no time to waste earning "respect." The students are SG's constituents. Not Bernie. Not the board. From the point the president is sworn in, he is the student's voice. When he chooses the first option, we lose our voice. SG could be an incredibly potent voice. Speaking on behalf of students and their problems with UlF SG could do a great deal of good. Hell, SG could even -gasp -partner with the Alligator to collect information and deliver a weekly column updating students -kiss and make up, guys. Students could have a great voice.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 31, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, 9 Rape victim speaks to male audience THE SPEAKER USED SKYDIVING AS THERAPY. By YVONNE AYALA Alligator Contributing Writer Kellie Greene didn't realize the impact being raped would have on her life until years later. On Jan. 18, 1994, Greene was raped by a stranger in her Orlando apartment. On Tuesday, 13 years after the attack, Greene shared her struggle as a rape victim with an audience of about 100 at UF's Hillel. "I started to speak up when I realized how ignorant I was about the whole system," Greene said. "Who better to know the system than someone who was on the receiving end of it?" At the meeting, she spoke to male students about supporting people in their lives who have been affected by sexual assault or abuse. "Usually when I. request .to speak with men, about 20 or 25 people show up," she said of the turnout. Spring rushees for UF fraternities were required to attend Greene's talk. Chris Allison, a rushee of Sigma Pi Fraternity, said Greek organizations set up different speeches so people are aware of what's going on and how they should and should not behave. At the time of Greene's rape, Florida did not have funds to support forensic exams for cases without suspects, like her own case. She lobbied for the 1995 legislation that prohibits hospitals from charging for a forensic exam. Greene said that when she was charged $800 for her exam, she refused to pay. In 2000, Greene co-authored the Florida Sexual Predators Act, which mandated consecutive sentences for convicted sex offenders and murderers in prison who are found guilty of subsequent offenses. She also founded Speaking Out Against Rape, a nonprofit organization offering sexual awareness seminars.

18, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 31, 2007 Gators remain optimistic despite low expectations By PHIL KEGLER Alligator Writer While the past has been bright, and the future may be even brighter, don't expect the UF men's tennis team to accept this year's dim predictions. The No. 17 Gators will look to make a strong debut as they take on Central Florida this afternoon at 3 at the Ring Tennis Complex. nNormally, this might be a match UF would look past to focus on Sunday's showdown with 2004 national champion Baylor. The Gators are rebuilding though, having lost six of their top eight players from last year. Three freshmen will be featured prominently in the lineup this season -Geoffrey Barton, Daniel Cash and Jesse Levine. One of the freshmen, however, will not be making his dual-match debut today. Levine, likely to play No. 1 singles this season, is playing in the International Tennis Championship in Delray Beach, an ATP event. Junior Greg Ouellette, ranked No. 16 nationally in singles, will play at the No. 1 position instead. Ouellette blamed poor preparation and a bothersome back for his poor showing in the Southeastern Conference Indoor Tournament, but said he's ready to go now. "Last year, we had the best team in the country but ended up not living up to expectations," said Ouellette, who exited the SEC Tourney in the second round. "We've prepared better this year than any other year I think we have to un who we are. We're tryi the top 25. We have to and excited abOu ing to win the NCAA (Tournament) this derstand year,"' Jackson said. "But you have to be ng to be in frank and up front, or your players can tell be u front when you're just telling one. be "I think we have to understand who we t it." are. We're trying to be in the top 25. We have Andy Jackson to be up front and excited about it." UF men's tennis coach I've been here." In 2006, UF started the season No. 2 and quickly climbed to the top ranking but lost in the round of 16 in the NCAA Tournament. This year, Coach Andy Jackson is not going to sugarcoat the situation for his players. "I'd much prefer to be in a situation where I can tell our team, 'Look, we're tryHELP ON ITS WAY: The Gators were ranked No. 1 in the Class of 2007 winter recruiting rankings released by Tennisrecruiting.net on Monday. UF has three commitments -two bluechip prospects and a five-star prospect. The two blue-chippers are Jeff Dadamo (Tampa), ranked No. 5 in the Class of 2007, and No. 8 Tyler Hochwalt (Scottsdale, Ariz.). The five-star prospect is No. 20 Erik Corace (Naples). op 0 0 4 op *.0 "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" REMEMBER YOUR SWEETIE THIS VALENTINE'S DAY WITH A MESSAGE IN TE ALLIEATCONS VALENATINE'S DAY SPECIAL SECTION 20 jj l thedpndentflrda ENT ER TH E E AIR-N CONTEST AND WIN VALENTINE GIFTS!

Sports WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 31, 2007 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org No. I Gators host improved, surging Commodores By JENNA MARINA Alligator Staff writer jmarina@alligator.org After back-to-back road games, the No. 1 UF men's basketball team returns home for a game it has been waiting months for. "I think when we play Vanderbilt, everybody comes to play," forward Corey Brewer said. "This is a game we all circle on our calendar." He's not joking. The Commodores entered the top 25 for the first time in three years this week after being pegged as a Southeastern Conference pushover in preseason rankings. Brewer exhibits a particular interest in tonight's game when the Gators (19-2, 6-0 SEC) host the Commodores (15-6, 5-2 SEC) at 7 because he almost chose to attend the Nashville school. "Freshman and sophomore year (of high school), Vandy was the school to go to because it was so close to home," said Brewer, a native of Portland, Tenn. "It is in the SEC, and I kind of thought I might go there." Interestingly enough, one of Vanderbilt's starters considered coming to UF when he was looking to transfer from LSU after the 2004-05 season. After sitting out last season per NCAA transfer rules, forward Ross Neltner is now a major component of the Commodores' lineup, averaging 10.3 points and six rebounds per game. "I told (Vanderbilt coach Kevirr Stallings) when Ross made his decision to go to Vanderbilt that he was getting a very good player," UF coach Billy Donovan said. "I know it was coming down to us and Vanderbilt. It certainly looks like he made a terrific decision because he's having a great year for them." "I think when we play Vanderbilt, everybody comes to play. This is a game we all circle on our calendar." Corey Brewer UF forward Vanderbilt also has talented players in forward Derrick Byars and guard Shan Foster, who are averaging 31 points and 10.1 rebounds per game combined. Not to mention, the Commodores could give 3-point specialist Lee Humphrey and the rest of the Gators backcourt some competition from behind the arc. Vanderbilt is hitting a league-best 10.5 3SEE BASKETBALL, PAGE 20 Tim casey/ Alligator Staff Junior Corey Brewer drives against Mississippi guard Todd Abernethy during the Gators' 79-70 win against the Rebels on Jan. 20 at the O'Connell Center. Wins leave champs lost for words Interviewing the No. 1 UF men's basketball team is about as exciting as watching potted plants sprout on the windowsill. The problem? These guys win too often and by too many points. After hearing the same, "How do you guys stop being so good?" question for the 1,678,548th time, Billy Donovan and Co. have conditioned themselves to answer in drone-like coach -or player -speak. So, until the Gators devise an ingenious plan for not being so dominant, we'll have a field day with a new installment of the long overdue "What They Meant To Say." These are actual quotes. Do not imitate this translation process without adult supervision. Forward Joakim Noah on UF's level of play: WHAT HE SAID: "Are we playing our best basketball? I don't think so. .I don't think we've played our best game yet." WHAT HE MEANT TO SAY: We started showing signs when we defeated Prairie View by 61 points, but we still haven't Louis shut out a team. Anastasis Have any of us Anasasis recorded a triple Louis in the Bullpen rorded a qrpe lanastasis@aigator.org double? A quadruple double? The Gator boys are lukewarm right now. This isn't even better than foreplay. Donovan on the national hype surrounding the Gators: WHAT HE SAID: "I've told our guys that the stuff they hear outside the locker room, it's all poison. "You start believing that stuff and taking it in, I think all it does is rob you of your talent, rob you of your focus, rob SEE BULLPEN, PAGE 20 UF RECRUITING Five-star safety picks UF By MIKE MCCALL Wright's skill and leadership helped Alligator Writer Aquinas to three-straight appearances in the Class 5A state championship game.

"It's a great coaching staff, nice environment and just a place I think I fit in." Wright will bring his tough, aggressive style to the Gators' secondary alongside rising seniors Kyle Jackson and Tony Joiner. "I see Major being more of a strong safety type who plays with a linebacker mentality," Scout.com recruiting analyst Jainie Newberg said. "He's a big-time hitter and a great athlete." tionship wi the commits from Lakeland. "I know a couple of them," Wright said. "The game doesn't make me dislike a person." Wright had to make several adjustments to eam the distinction of the No. 4 safety. "He's improved his coverage skills this year," Smith said. "Last year he was more trying to just run people over all the time, so that's greatly improved and certainly will continue to improve."

20, ALLIGATOR S WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 31, 2007 Victory would give UF quickest 20-win season in school history BASKETBALL, from page 19 pointers per game. pRight now, they are probably playing their best basketball of the year," Donovan said. "I think we'll see a team come in here with a lot of confidence, and they should have a lot of confidence because of what they've been able to do on the road the last several games." Vanderbilt upset then-No. 16 Tennessee on Jan. 10 and No. 10 Alabama on Jan. 17 at home and followed with victories at No. 25 Kentucky on Jan. 20 and at No. 21 LSU just four days later. The Commodores were known for mastering the Princeton offense, but come tonight, Gators fans will see a new scheme. "They're playing totally they were a year ago," Donovan said. "The floor is spaced, they're doing some backdoor cuts. They do have some Princeton concepts but not the same offense that everybody watched for the last several years." conundrum for defenses, so UF's players couldn't be happier about the Commodores' change. "It was tough because they had so many plays," forward Al Horford said. "I guess we're better off now." If the Gators win their 13th in a row tonight, it will be the first time in school history that UF has earned 20 wins in a season before different than The Princeton offense is known to be a the end of January. Gators have room for more RECRUIT, from page 19 Wright is the eighth five-star commit and the 25th overall for the Gators, who already had the No. 1 class before he commited. "This is putting (UF) in a different stratosphere from everybody else right now," Newberg said. "Not only do they have great players but great quantity too. "1 UF is still in the hunt for fivestar prospects Brown, receivers Terrence Toliver and Deonte Football Thompson, cornerback Ronald Johnson and defensive end Allen Bailey BULLPEN, from page 19 you of everything." WHAT HE MEANT TO SAY: Look what happened to Jack Berry. He used to be a solid contributor in the last 8 seconds of games until all of that Subway Jack crap. People started chanting his name, he fed into the publicity like a rabid dog and the next thing you know, Subway pulls its promotion and Jack starts missing layups during warm-ups. Donovan on whether the Gators have improved at a desirable pace: WHAT HE SAID: "I think we've taken strides." WHAT HE MEANT TO SAY: The other day, Lee scowled while saying "Damn" under his breath, and Joakim has begun shaving every other week. Sounds like a productive year to me. Donovan on UF's improved shot selection: WHAT HE SAID: "Yes, up to this point and time we've taken good shots. But it doesn't mean we're going to continue taking good shots." WHAT HE MEANT TO SAY: Continuing to take good shots is inversely contingent on the amount of minutes I give Dan Werner. Donovan on expectations: WHAT HE SAID: "I can't predict the future." WHAT HE MEANT TO SAY: Who will we dismantle in the Sweet 16 -West Virginia or Northern Iowa? It's anybody's guess, but I think we have to do that.
