Super Bowl XLI, featuring the

for many UF students to skip their

Jordan Wall, a UF student, had a

"I think Rex Grossman's going

It felt like any other game day in
Gainesville: The smell of beer and
fried food filled the air. Football fa-
natics huddled around TV sets, eyes
wide and fists pumping.
But Sunday night, there was no
communal chomping and cheering.
To the delight of restaurant de-
livery drivers and bar owners across

Global



warming



confirmed

By RANDI BERNFELD
Alligator Contributing Writer

According to a report on climate change released Friday,
global warming is true, and human activity, especially the
burning of fossil fuels, is very likely the driving force.
The 21-page report, written by the Intergovernmental
Panel on Climate Change, is the first volume of the "Fourth
Assessment Report: Climate Change 2007."
The panel consists of roughly 1,250 expert researchers
who study peer-reviewed and scientific documents to
distill the information relevant to un-
derstand the causes of global waning,
as well as the effects the heat-up is hav-
ing on that planet and the options for
mitigation and adaptation.
SThe report stated that by the year
A '! 2100, temperatures likely will rise 3.5
to 8 degrees Fahrenheit, causing critical
Mulkey water shortages, extreme weather pat-
terns and glacier shrinkage.
UF botany professor Steven Mulkey said the commu-
nity should regard these findings as facts.
"The issue of global warming is not a balanced argu-
ment," said Mulkey. "Our climate is changing at a drastic
rate. Global warming is as real as a heart attack."
To add to the credibility of this report, last year was
the warmest in the contiguous United States in more than
a century, and 11 of the last 12 years rank among the 12
warmest years on record.
The report also stated that by 2075, sea levels could rise
from 2 to 7 feet, causing coastal flooding to sweep about 7

Administrators respond to critical education report


* THE REPORT FOUND FAULT WITH
THE STATE UNIVERSITY SYSTEM.

By JOEY CHINDAMO
Alligator Writer
jchindamo@alligator.org

A report that criticized Florida's higher
education system was released last month,
but two university presidents think it's still
too early to form definitive conclusions.
The report, conductedbythe Connecticut-
based Pappas Consulting Group, scolded
the State University System of Florida for its
resources being spread too thin, its universi-


ties not cooperating and its lack of focus on
undergraduate education.
Frank T. Brogan, president of Florida
Atlantic University, said it's important for
universities to remain open-minded to the
report's suggestions.
"The plan is very thoughtful, very in-
sightful, and while it evokes some emotions
from current institutions, I think we need to
give it an opportunity to work," he said.
UF President Bernie Machen was un-
available for comment.
According to the report, the system could
bankrupt itself due not only to the state's
low tuition rates but also the high cost of the
Florida Bright Futures Scholarship Program


and the Florida Prepaid College Plan.
To solve some of the system's problems,
the report recommended some universities
focus solely on undergraduate education
and not graduate degrees.
The Florida Board of
News Governors, which oversees
s the state's 11 public universi-
ties, responded to the report
with an initiative called Forward By Design,
which asks the public for suggestions via the
board's Web site.
Brogan said he is enthusiastic about the
initiative because it asks for the public's in-
put something that is necessary for good
decision-making, he added.


"Leave it up to just policy-makers with-
out getting the pulse of the general public,
and you're in trouble," he said.
He said both Bright Futures and the
Prepaid program have provided hundreds
of thousands of students in the state access
to higher education they may never have
had.
Florida State University President T.K.
Wetherell said more money is necessary for
Florida's universities to become nationally
prominent.
"You can't be expected to run world-class
universities on tuition that kindergarten stu-
dents pay," he said. "I don't give a dang who
you are, you can't do it."


EAST GAINESVILLE

City buys abandoned East Gainesville apartment complex


By JESSICA RIFFEL
Alligator Staff Writer
jriffel@alligator.org

The abandoned apartment com-
plex was silent the only sound
was the wind rustling through an
oak tree in the center courtyard.
Then the camera crews arrived,
with city officials following dose
behind. And soon there was a new
sound: the buzz of excitement.
"Do you feel it?" City
Commissioner Scherwin Henry
asked, wiggling his fingers in the
air. "Do you feel it? The excitement


of change."
City officials had big grins on
their faces Friday as they talked
about the future of Kennedy Homes,
an abandoned apartment complex
in East Gainesville they purchased
Wednesday for $1.95 million.
City commissioners had been
trying to buy the 15-acre property
for two years as part of the city's ef-
fort to revitalize East Gainesville.
At a press conference Friday,
commissioners focused on the fu-
ture of the land. They plan to put
in mixed-income housing and en-
courage residents to buy the homes


instead of renting.
"Citizens take more pride in
home ownership," said Henry, who
grew up near Kennedy Homes,
which is on
Southeast Eighth
Avenue.
And pride
is what gives
nearby residents
S the hope that the
new develop-
Henry ment won't fall
into neglect like
Kennedy Homes did, Henry said.
Kennedy Homes, built as low-


income housing, was plagued with
rat infestations, collapsing ceilings
and a fire. It was shut down and
abandoned in 2005, and its residents
were sent to a hotel until the federal
government found them housing.
Since then, the brick buildings -
with dark green plywood covering
doors and windows have been an
eyesore in East Gainesville.
The project is part of the
Southeast Gainesville Renaissance
Initiative, a plan to revitalize the tra-
ditionally poorer part of town and
draw in residents and businesses.
"There is going to be a great

transformation here," Henry said.
"This is going to be an excellent hub
for families."
Doris Edwards, a resident of ad-
jacent community Lincoln Heights,
said she hopes .commissioners
will involve UF students in the
design phase through the Witters
Competition, in which students in
the College of Design, Construction
and Planning create practical solu-
tions for development problems.
"We can get the students in-
volved to get some radical ideas
- not just what old people think,"
she said.

Bush leads push to cut gasoline consumption, find alternative fuels


WARMING, from'page

million homes.
Mulkey said this will have
dire consequences for Floridians
because a mere 9-inch sea rise will
cause flooding along the coastlines.
He and other experts also predict
that more intense hurricanes could
strike the state's coasts, where 80
percent of the population resides.
"If we postpone or avoid plan-
ning for this," Mulkey said, "then
there will be irretrievable losses of
our natural'resources and a poorer
quality of life."
The panel on climate change
was created by the World
Meteorological Organization and
the United Nations Environment
Program in 1988..
Since its creation, the panel has
guided policy-makers globally on
the impact of climate change.
In 1995, the panel released its
second report stating that humans
had an influence in global warm-
ing. Following this assessment,
the Kyoto Protocol was amended
in 1997.
This treaty assigns mandatory
targets to reduce members' green-
house gas emissions by 5.2 percent,
compared to the year 1990. Kyoto
works like a "cap-and-trade" prot
gram that gives companies a cap on
the amount of pollution that can be
emitted. Those able to beat the lim-
its can sell allowances on the open
market to other companies not yet
in compliance.
Currently, 169 nations have
ratified the treaty. Australia and the
United States have signed the treaty


but refuse to ratify it.
Although President George W.
Bush has been criticized for not
ratifying Kyoto and for failing to
utter the words "global warming"
in his State of the Union address
last month, he admitted that warm-
ing climates are a fact.
Bush also said that Congress is
working on a series of measures to


reduce gasoline consumption by 20
percent in 10 years. One of these
plans includes a push for the use
of alternative fuels like ethanol to
reduce a reliance on foreign oil.
Ethanol can be produced in dif-
ferent ways, such as burning sugar
cane and switch grass. Thus far,
corn has been the most widely used
in producing ethanol, at about $2


A


per gallon.
Lonnie O. Ingram, the director
of the Florida Center for Renewable
Chemicals and
International Fuels, said
NeWS corn ethanol
has not had a
big impact on the environment. He
said that in 2005, corn ethanol use
in the United States reduced car-


bon dioxide emissions by roughly
7.8 million tons, which is equal to
removing the annual-emissions of
more than 1 million cars. That's
less than 3 percent of the nation's
automobiles, he said.
Ingram said scientists could
use other products to make more
ethanol, which will also reduce
the world's petroleum intake. For
example, he invented a bug made
from bacteria that eats wood and
other plant material to make etha-
nol.
"Imagine taking this desk," he
said, banging his knuckles on the
mahogany desktop, "breaking it
down and using it to fuel your
car."
Assistant professor Ted Schuur
said fuel-efficient cars are not
enough of a solution.
"Reducing atmospheric carbon
is a good idea, but the government
needs to consider all the other.
climate-forcing factors that may
be changing at the same time," he
said.
Later this year, the panel of
climate change will release the full
science volume, which will include
more detailed information. It will
also release a report about how
people can adapt to the heat-up
and another report on ways ,to
reduce greenhouse gases in the
atmosphere.
"People think they had nothing
to do with the drastic change in
climate," said UF doctoral student
Philip Kauth. "But we will be alive
to see the serious consequences we
have caused on our planet. Maybe
next time we'll think twice about
leaving our lights on."

Tornado Tragedy


Twisters strike central


Fla., killing at least 20


By DREW HARWELL
NICOLE SAFKER
LUANNE DIETZ
Alligator Staff Writers


LADY LAKE "I can't de-
scribe the feeling," said Jessie Graf
as she inspected the soaked rubble
she once called home.
"It's like a nightmare I just
couldn't wake up from. I'm still
not awake."
Not even the statistics at
least 20 dead, $100 million in dam-
ages could hint at the emotion
many homeowners felt after their
property was demolished by a
series of tornadoes that swept
through Central Florida early
Friday morning.
Graf, who had lived in her
mobile home on Alma Street for
more than 20 years, said the tor-
nadoes reduced it to scrap within
minutes.
As Graf looked at her destroyed
home and began to walk away,
tears rolled down her face.
"I'll never get my house back,"
she said.
Her son, Preston Graf, who
lived with her in the home, said he
was sleeping in the front bedroom
of the trailer when a noise like a
baseball bat thudding against the
walls awoke him.
As he retrieved a flashlight, the
sound transformed into a loud

-


whooshing. The noise, he said,
was his roof collapsing.
After the winds died down,
Preston exited the home to check
the damage. Among the downed
trees and the scrap metal from
nearby buildings, he said, were
several injured people.
Their bodies, bloodied and
beaten, lay drenched on the
ground. Ambulances that came
to take them to a nearby hos-
pital couldn't reach the victims
because of downed trees, so one
of Preston's neighbors took them
there in his pickup truck.
Florida National Guard Maj.
Gen. Douglas Burnett, who spoke
at the site of the now-destroyed
Lady Lake Church of God on
Saturday, said the search and res-
cue effort was completed within
the first 24 hours, with operations
Friday limited to aiding those af-
fected by the storm.
He said when he flew over the
area in a Black Hawk helicopter to
survey the damage, he saw homes
that were flattened from the im-
pact of the storm.
"It looked like a bomb went
off," he said.
The destruction stretched for 50
miles, said Chris Tenaro, a soldier
with the National Guard who also
appraised the demolition from
above.
"I've seen everything from

he said. "This is just as bad." -
Tenaro said the damage he had
seen done to houses and buildings
in the tornadoes' path resembled a
shotgun blast.
"That's steel," he said, gesturing
at treetops garnished with fiber-
glass, wood and roofing shingles.
"That's bent steel up there."
At about 3:30 a.m. Friday, Lady
Lake Church Pastor Larry Lynn re-
ceived a call from a member of his
church informing him that there
might be damage to the building.
When he arrived to inspect the
damage, he found the church in
ruins.
"I just took a deep breath, said,
'What was done, was done' and
that there was nothing else we

could do about it," he said, "and
we moved on."
Scott Lynn, his son, dug through
the debris of the church to look for
tapes and CDs on Saturday.

"These are the only records of

building, but people who came
from around the state to help out-
numbered them.
Jonathan Hoewing, along with
about 20 friends, drove eight hours
from the Florida Keys on Friday to
help with the restoration efforts.
Hoewing, 26, said his group
had been training in dive rescue
and was scheduled to have a free
weekend.
However, upon hearing news
of the destruction, the friends de-
cided to make the trip.
"We don't plan for anything,"
he said, "but we kind of hope and
pray for the best."
Aussey Heath, a worker with
Burford's Tree Surgeons, was one
of the hundreds of employees to
work extra hours moving rubble,
repairing roads and mending
downed power lines.
He said that Friday, a day after
the damage, he had been working
from 4 a.m. to midnight. He added
they would most likely be working
that schedule for days.
Many homeowners in the area,
however, were fortunate enough
to receive little damage.
Tracey Schofield, who lives
across the road from the church,
said her house was unscathed.
In fact, her property had im-
proved in some ways: An out-of-
ground swimming pool and a shed
had blown into her backyard from
down the road.
Ed Reposa, who lived on
Alma Street about a mile from
the church, said his house and a
tnemorial he created for soldiers
overseas had also been spared
from any damage.
"I'm not a religious man, but
I believe in God," Reposa said. "I
believe he had something to do
with it."

In hot water

Global warming is here

to stay
T he results are in, and the future doesn't look good.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
released its report Friday on the state of worldwide
global warming. The report declared that global warming
is "unequivocal" and will "continue for centuries."
French President Jacques Chirac is threatening to slam
the United States with a "carbon tax" if it doesn't ratify the
Kyoto treaty and its successor, when it runs out in 2012.
We know the idea of France standing up to the United
States is laughable.
But with the power of the European Union behind
Chirac, President Bush should prick up his ears.
The carbon tax would be added on to U.S. exports to en-
courage the United States to ratify the Kyoto treaty and
the E.U. is the largest importer of American goods.
France also proposed creating a new environmental
body to slow global warming, and 45 other countries
signed on in agreement.
But the United States did not join those countries, de-
spite the fact that it alone produces about one-fourth of the
world's greenhouse gases.
The United States is rich enough, advanced enough and
powerful enough to be a leader if not THE leader in
slowing the inevitable global climate change. But instead,
it sits back and laughs in the faces of countries trying to
enact positive change.
The United States could enact an emissions cap-and-
trade program. This would allow each company a set
amount a cap of greenhouse emissions. It could then
emit only that much. If it had any left over at the end of
the period, it could sell or trade it to another company that
needs to emit more gases.
Then the United States could regulate how much
carbon and other greenhouse gases are emitted into the
atmosphere.
Fuel economies should also be raised, and this has
been talked about for years. This one's obvious people
would bum less fuel driving. While some argue that this
would encourage people to just drive more, that argument
doesn't have much hold. Did people start driving less
when gas prices started rising? Not really.
Another possibility is to enact a higher gas tax. Most
of Europe does this that's why gas in Great Britain
and Germany costs about twice as much as in the United
States. By charging, say, an additional 50 cents per gallon
of gas, people will eventually drive less.
It would also provide a constant source of revenue for
the government. But unfortunately, this is often seen as
political suicide for any politician who proposes it, so we
probably won't see it in America anytime soon.
In his 2007 State of the Union address, President Bush
finally recognized that climate change is here to stay. It's
time for him to get behind his words, join the rest of the
world in the struggle against rising global temperatures
and coastal water levels, and make some changes in the
United States and the rest of the world.
We could be the most powerful force in the fight to slow
global warming, but we're too busy letting our pride and
selfishness get in the way.

Writing on the Wall
A s the fifth annual Writing on the Wall Project came
to a close Friday, students finally witnessed the
results of their hard work.
Evil organizations renounced their racism, sexism and
communism. Thousands realized their lives of eating
children and abusing the elderly were not only morally
wrong but also hugely unpopular. Homophobia was re-
solved. Terrorism stopped. And a white kid high-fived a
black kid.
Gotcha! Really, a bunch of people who don't like being
called names agreed they don't like being called names.
Then they smashed up a few thousand dollars worth of
your money.
There are many problems with the Writing on the Wall
Project. Perhaps the biggest is the fact that the hardcore
offenders KKK members and neo-Nazis don't show
up. They aren't looking for enlightenment. So a bunch of
people who already support the wall continue to support
it.
And if the offenders did show up what then? Do you
see "Dirty Jew" written on a wall, realize you've offended
someone and then turn in your hood to the local Grand
Dragon? Probably not.
Of the five or 10 people around each time I went to the
wall, at least two openly mocked the project. What do you
think they learned? Every night that the wall stood, it was
guarded all night by a group of volunteers. Clearly, the
power of the wall itself was not enough to ward off those
who disagreed with it.
Some bricks even opposed the project itself. Some
would celebrate this as the epitome of the all-inclusive no-
censoring policy, but it is in fact concrete (sorry) evidence
that this wall, which purports to oppose division, is itself
divided.
One brick opposed Israel, another Palestine. You can't

embrace both. Because some
bricks contradict other bricks, no
one could support the entire wall
V ,' so it failed as a symbol of unity
and tolerance.
If one thing could be gathered
Patrick Barrett from the Writing on the Wall, it's
Grin and Barrett that prejudice is bad. Is that news
letters@alligator.org to the people who saw the wall
come down?
Several bricks expressed re-
sentment over the assumption by some people that black
students at UF are here only because of affirmative action.
But the fact is a percentage of black UF students would not
have gotten into UF if they were white. That's the whole
point of the policy. Affirmative action is a serious and
complex issue. But those bricks weren't against the policy,
only the perception.
While many problems can be solved by writing on
bricks and smashing them, this just isn't one of them.
Those students who spent the night guarding the wall
endured some cold weather. A lot of sincere effort went
into this project. Shouldn't we at least celebrate that?
No. Racism and prejudice are elusive devils that don't
fall to mere sincerity. Their best weapon might be the
ability to lead their enemies down paths of triviality and
symbolism.
If we celebrate a sincere but ineffective gesture of tol-
erance, we risk locking more idealists into this cycle of
meaningless display because when you think you've
found the best way to fight, you stop looking for a better
one.
And there are better ways than this.

Letters to the
Golden Key important and valuable
This is in response to Patrick Barrett's
column from Jan. 29. He questioned the
need for honor societies Golden Key, spe-
cifically and even said they are "harm-
ful." Those who are involved with Golden
Key realize what a ridiculous idea that is.
Barrett's assertion that it's meaningless to
be in the academic top 15 percent of upper-
classmen is ignorant.
It can be easy to focus in on a little corer
of the world like UF, where everyone seems
motivated, active and successful. But widen
your scope a little, and you'll see the masses
who desperately tried to get into UF but
couldn't. Take a second, and consider the
students here at UF who have struggled
to make passable grades and who would
greatly appreciate being recognized for a
legitimate achievement like Golden Key
membership. Step outside of your own self-
interest for one second and think of what it
means to your family members who often
sacrificed a great deal to put you in your po-
sition to have some acknowledgement of


their support and your hard work.
The most revealing detail of Barrett's
editorial is the truth in this statement: "I
received an invitation to join Golden Key
International Honour Society last year. It
didn't mean much to me, but my mom said
she'd pay the initiation fee, so I joined."
Even if he cannot see it, Barrett's mother
realizes her son's accomplishments. Despite
academic success, the hardest thing to learn
is perspective.
Galen Sencil
UF chapter president, Golden Key



Rabbits great pets for college students
Nothing thrilled me more than the article
about Gainesville Rabbit Rescue in Friday's
Alligator. I recently adopted a bunny of my
own, and I truly think they are the ideal pets
for college students. Bunnies are quiet, lov-
ing and cuddly. I encourage more college
students who are considering adopting a pet
to take one of these loving little lagomorphs


into their homes. There is little maintenance
and so much love in return. My bunny, Sir
Puff, likes to lick my hand in appreciation
and love. Once again, thank you for the ar-
ticle on bunnies it made my Friday even
better!

UF shouldn't have gotten rid of minuses
Student Senator Gavin Baker makes an
interesting case when he writes that faculty
weren't eager to involve students in the mi-
nus-grade debate. The elimination of the mi-
nus grade at UF a few years back was an ill-
advised reaction by a faculty frustrated with
trends perceived as hostile to educational
quality. There was increasing use of gradu-
ate students as instructors and the continu-
ing absence of a coherent salary structure.
Funded research became more valuable
than teaching. There was a noticeable inap-
propriate use of student ratings, resulting in


grade inflation and the lack of concern about
the worth of undergraduate education. An
argument for dropping the minus then was
that grades were inexact so why risk stu-
dent ire over such an issue?
If our new corporate university doesn't
address the problems of instructional
quality, what can faculty members do?
Instruction, grading and standards are cer-
tainly their responsibility. Well then, why
not start by returning the minus grade to its
logical place and attach a bit of integrity to
a process that's degenerated into an unduly
generous and needlessly imprecise grading
system? Unfortunately, since teaching facul-
ty usually have little to do with forming and
implementing quality-oriented educational
policy, playing with the minus is about all
they have left.
And most other universities had never
even dropped their "minus" in the first
place. Are students who oppose the change
back to "minus" grades really interested in
the quality of UF education?

CASA president and UF senior


The actual date of the Chinese New Year is Feb.
18, but the celebration at UF began Saturday night.
The crowd filled the Reitz Union Ballroom's 500 seats,
leaving only standing room for the Year of the Pig
celebration.
The lion dance was one of many acts highlighted
in the show, which was named "Spring into the New
Year" and which blended both traditional and modem
aspects of Chinese culture.
CASA's Traditional Dance Troupe performed
classical Chinese dances, gracefully twirling hand-
kerchiefs and fans. The Gainesville Chinese School
also demonstrated traditional Chinese dancing with
children who spun pink umbrellas.
More contemporary aspects of the show included
musical performances, a hip-hop dance performed
by CASA members and skits put on by members of
CASA and the Pi Delta Psi Fraternity.
"Just in case you can't grasp how heavy Chinese
New Year is on our traditional calendar, its as if you
put Thanksgiving, Christmas and regular New Year's
together," said CASA president and UF senior George
Liu. "If they had a love child, it would be Chinese New
Year."


Greeks


fundraise


with games
By JASON SILVER
Alligator Contributing Writer
UF's Greek community got competitive
this week and took to a few on-campus fields
to raise money for different charities.
The Pi Beta Phi Sorority held the Down
'N' Dirty flag-football tournament Saturday
at Lake Alice Field.
The event drew more than 300 people
and raised more than $13,000, which will
go toward promoting literacy, said Shaune
Heyser, the sorority's philanthropy chair-
woman. Adam Lickstein, the quarterback
of Tau Epsilon Phi's team, said
Greek the tournament was one of the
Speak best Greek fundraisers he's been
part of.
"It was a lot of fun because Pi (Beta) Phi
has great girls, and we had great coaches
cheering us on," Lickstein said. "The com-
petitiveness of the tournament also made it
a lot of fun."
The Delta Chi Fraternity also put on
a tournament this week, but the game
- Earthball was a little less conventional.
Ross Sacharow, Delta Chi's philanthropy
chairman, said Earthball is similar to soccer,
except it's played with an 8-foot ball.
The tournament raised $800 for The V
Foundation for Cancer Research, a charity
founded by the late college basketball coach
Jim Valvano.

TRAFFIC SAFTEY CLASS IS
NO LONGER AN OPTION.
By CHRISTINE MOYE
Alligator Contributing Writer
Bicycle traffic violators will no
longer be able to attend a bicycle
traffic safety class in lieu of pay-
ing for the citation.
Due to a disagreement be-
tween Alachua County judges
and the University Police
Department, the Alachua County
Clerk of the Court will no longer
accept certificates of completion
from the class.
"(From now on) we won't be
dismissing a ticket if you turn
it into the traffic bureau," said
Mary Grace Curtain, chief deputy
clerk of Alachua County.
Traffic violators will have only
two options: Pay the state fees for
the ticket, or appeal it in court.
This went into effect Thursday.
The previous arrangement
between the judges and UPD
was only an agreement and not a
law. The judges simply asked the
clerk's office to accept the certifi-
cates, Curtain said.
"We can't do something that's
not statute or ruled," Curtain
said. "There's no authority."
The agreement
is no longer valid
News because the judges
in Alachua County
have changed
in the past few years, and an
amendment to Article Five in the
Florida Constitution took effect
in July 2004.
The amendment regulates
guidelines about judiciary mat-
ters, and nowhere does it spe-
cifically mention bicycle citations
and bicycle traffic safety school,
Curtain said.
UPD Maj. Brad Barber said
that from Jan. 31, bicycle traffic
violators still have 30 days to
complete the class.
Class will continue as normal,
but UPD isn't sure whether class
will take place after that, Barber
said.
Because UPD writes about
1,000 traffic citations to bicyclists
on campus every calendar year,
the bicycle safety class was usu-
ally full, said Lt. Robert Wagner,
a spokesman for UPD.
The most common bicycle
traffic violations include riding
at night without a light, running
a stop sign and wearing head-
phones while riding. Ticket pric-
es range from $46.50 to $118.50,
according to the UPD Web site.

LB Hicks commits to UF


ETWO-WAY PROSPECT
JOHNSON CHOSE USC.
By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
nzaccardi@alligator.org
Linebacker Brandon Hicks com-
mitted to UF on Sunday, adding to
the Gators' top-ranked recruiting
class.
The Jacksonville Forrest High
four-star prospect informed UF
coach Urban Meyer of his inten-
tions, according to the Florida
Times-Union.
Hicks checked in as the No. 15
strong-side linebacker, according to
Scout.com.
Rivals.com ranked Hicks the
eighth-best outside linebacker of
the 2007 class.
"He's a really good player, an ex-
plosive player who runs well from
sideline to sideline," Scout.com
recruiting analyst Jamie Newberg
said. "He's a big-time hitter. I think
he's got a bright future."
While they picked up one com-
mit, the Gators lost out on a five-
star recruit as touted athlete Ronald


Johnson verbally committed to
Southern California.
Johnson, out of Muskegon,
Mich., chose the Trojans instead of
UF, Michigan, Michigan State and
Ohio State.
Scout ranked Johnson the No.
2 corerback in the 2007 class but
also listed the 6-foot, 185-pound
prospect as a wide receiver.
Rivals had Johnson as the No. 1
receiver and the eighth overall play-
er in the country. Muskegon High
coach Tony Annese said USC was
the only school to recruit Johnson
strictly as a receiver, which may
have factored into the decision.
"He's one of the top two-way
guys in the country," Newberg
said. "He's good enough to play on
either side of the ball for anyone in
the country. He's a playmaker."
A flurry of players will commit
in the next few days as National,
Signing Day approaches on
Wednesday..
UF's prospects include top-
ranked receiver Terrance Toliver,
No. 3 wide receiver Deonte
Thompson, No. 1 safety Chad Jones
and No. 7 defensive end Allen
Bailey.

UF MEN'S TENNIS


Young UF surprises No. 2 Baylor


By PHIL KEGLER
a Alligator Writer

As the UF men's tennis team
continues to -surpass- expecta-
tions, it may start being called
something unexpected: a con-
tender.
Key play from upperclassmen
and freshmen helped lead the
Gators to a 4-3 upset against No.
2 Baylor (4-1) on Sunday.
No. 15 UF (3-0) started off
with an easy 6-1 victory against
Furman (1-3) on Friday night.


Sunday's match caused more
drama against Baylor, as the
doubles point would come down
to the freshman duo of Dan Cash
and Geoffrey Barton after the
Gators split at the No. 1-and-No.
2 positions.
The match would go the dis-
tance as Cash and Barton gave
UF the doubles point with a 9-8
(4) victory.
"(Cash and Barton's vic-
tory) gave Greg (Ouellete), Jesse
(Levine) and Nestor (Briceno) a
chance to understand that if they

over Ole Miss 5-2 on March 3, 2006, at the Ring Tennis Complex in
Gainesville, Florida.


could sweep their three matches,
we could win," Coach Andy
Jackson said. "Those two fresh-
men made the difference."
Jackson tried to bank on the
momentum of the big doubles
win,- substituting Ca-lh md
Barton into singles positions, No.
5 and 6, respectively.
Barton- couldn't keep the mo-
mentum going, however, losing
6-0, 6-0 to No. 66 Denes Lukacs,
knotting the team score at 1-1.
Straight-set victories by Levine
(6-1, 6-3) and No. 16 Ouellette (6-
1, 6-2) in the No.'1 and 2 matches
gave the Gators a 3-1 advantage.
"I was pumped up from the
very start in the doubles and
brought that into the singles,"
Ouellette said. "Baylor's been a
powerhouse in college tennis for
the past five years.
"They've always been really
tough to play against. We just
took it to them."
After leading 4-1 in the first
set, Cash lost 12 of the next 13
games to fall 6-4, 6-1, leaving the
Gators with a 3-2 edge.
All focus turned to the No.
3 singles match between No. 60
Briceno and Matija Zgaga.
Briceno took the first set and
was up 4-2 in the second before
Zgaga took three straight games.
Briceno fended off a possible
third set by taking the next three,
giving him a 6-1, 7-5 victory and
clinching the Gators' upset.
Sunday's victory was espe-
cially big for the Gators as they
head away from home for their
next two matches.
UFwill continue a challeng-
ing schedule, going against No.
7 Illinois on Feb. 13 and No. 13
Florida State on Feb. 17.
Even after the win, Jackson
feels his team has a ways to go.
"I would be lying if I said I
wasn't surprised," Jackson said.
"We beat a contender, (but that)
doesn't make us a contender.
"The schedule is set .for, re-
ally, a top-5 team. We have some
guys who have talent, but need
to develop. If some of those three
or four guys step up, would that
Change things? Absolutely."


Santa Fe rolls in


shutout victory
By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Writer
By the top or me v a ;nn when Santa Fe had a 10-0
lead, even the scoreboard operator was exhausted.
"My fingers are getting tired from pushing all these but-
tons," Matt Medlock said.
That's the kind of day it was for the relentless Saints,
who put up 20 hits in a 14-0 victory against South Florida
Community College on Saturday afternoon.
After a four-day layoff and a game canceled Friday due to
rain, Coach Johnnny Wiggs was worried the team would come
out rusty and lethargic.
But the Saints (4-0) were nothing of the sort.
They started their scoring early.
After Jared Stephenson and Anthony Randich singled and
Andrew Migetz was hit by a pitch, the Saints added three more
singles to score four runs in the second inning.
Starting pitcher Billy Whitaker (2-0) threw his second shut-
out of the season. He allowed four hits in six
innings and struck out three South Florida
batters.
"That's what I love to see," Whitaker
Said of the shutout. "Absolutely."
It was a cold day, and the pitcher had to
stretch between innings to keep his blood
flowing, but the Saints batters did not seem
Whitaker to be affected.
SThey were more than eager to help
Whitaker pick up the win, and the five-hit second inning was
just the beginning of their day.
SFCC added three runs in the fifth, sixth and seventh in-
nings.
In the fifth, the Saints had five more hits, all singles, to bring
their lead to 7-0.
In the sixth, center fielder Eugene Gamett got the inning go-
ing with a single. Designated hitter Todd Waller brought him
home with an RBI double and Randich added his third hit of
the game.
He finished the game with four hits and four runs scored
for SFCC.
The seventh-inning scoring got going when Johnny
Kirkland walked on five pitches. Stephenson doubled and
Randich followed with his fourth single. Migetz hit a two-run
double to cap the scoring in the inning.
"It's such a positive thing knowing that your hitters can
help you out," Whitaker said.
Eight of the nine Saints starters had hits. Gamett, Stevenson
and third baseman Chris Warren had three hits each.
Relief pitchers Chad Brock and Caleb Fuddy came in to
pitch the final three innings of shutout baseball, giving up
three hits combined.
"I'm really lucky this year to have a pitching staff I can rely
on," Whitaker said.
Wiggs will continue to count on his pitching staff through-
out the season.
"It revolves and starts with the tempo and tone of the pitch-
ers," Wiggs said. "Once Billy came out and established it for us
with six zeroes, I thought we had the win."


Wilcox leads Gators divers, earns two runner-up finishes


* THE SOPHOMORE EARNED HIGH
MARKS ON THE 1- AND 3-METER
BOARDS.

By SCOTT ROSEN
Alligator Writer

Tack two more Southeastern Conference
diving honors to sophomore Jonathan
Wilcox's already impressive r6sum6.
In the opening competitions of the SEC
Diving Championships, Wilcox captured
two runner-up finishes in as many days at
Kentucky.
Wilcox and senior Justin Schmidt repre-


sented the men's team. The women's team
was represented by freshman Jennifer Funch
and sophomore Whitney Stem.
Wilcox's first second-place finish came
on Friday in the 1-meter dive with a score of
357.50.
Then, on Saturday, Wilcox scored 395.45 off
the 3M board, also earning him second. Both
scores marked collegiate postseason highs.
"Jonathan is diving well and he's diving
relaxed," UF diving coach Donnie Craine
said. "I can see him having fun out there. He's
finally starting to believe that he actually be-
longs here."
Wilcox's best dive of the weekend came
on Saturday, where in the fourth round he
averaged a score of 7.5 on a reverse three-and-


a-half somersault from the tuck position. The
dive carried a 3.5 degree of difficulty.
During Saturday's competition, Schmidt
finished 14th off the 3M board. He scored 55.5
in the sixth round on his best dive of a night,
a forward two-and-a-half somersault with a
twist.
"He's finally starting to believe
that he actually belongs here."
Donnie Craine
UF diving coach

"Justin scored some points for us today,
and he did a decent job," Craine said. "After
having shoulder surgery last summer, it's


amazing what he's able to do right now. Both
guys are really doing a great job."
On Sunday, both Schmidt and Wilcox
competed off the platform, finishing sixth
and third, respectively. For the women, Funch
finished 16th in the 1M, 17th off the 3M and
placed eighth off the platform.
Stem took 20th in the 1M and 15th in the
3M.
"The women have scored as many points
on springboard this year as they did last year,"
Craine said. "They're right on the edge of
making finals, just a few things here and there-
kept them out."
The swim teams head to Kentucky on
Wednesday to compete in their portion of the
2007 SEC Championships.

UF routs Vols. Brewer OK after late fall


EDONOVAN DOESN'T EXPECT THE
JUNIOR TO MISS PRACTICE TIME.

By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
jmarina@alligator.org.

With a minute left, not one of the 12,222 in
attendance at the O'Connell Center made a
sound.
It didn't matter to Gators fans that UF was
up by 17 points. It didn't matter to Volunteers
fans that Tennessee was about to lose its fifth
Southeastern Conference game.
None of it mattered because forward Corey
Brewer was writhing on the floor, dutching his
right knee.
"C'mon, Corey. Get up, baby," a fan shouted
from the stands to break the silence.
Seconds earlier; Brewer tried to block JaJuan
Smith's layup attempt but collided with the
Tennessee guard instead.
As the student section chanted his name,
Brewer got off the floor and slightly limped to
the bench.
Coach Billy Donovan said Brewer was fine
after top-ranked UF's 94-78 victory against the
Volunteers on Saturday, and doctors believed the
forward just bruised his knee.
Donovan doesn't expect that Brewer will
need X-rays and thinks he should be able to
practice today.
"I think he just landed a little awkwardly,
which probably just scared him more than any-
thing else," Donovan said. "He's fine right now,
according to the doctors.".
Stj, the fall was enough to scare some of his
teammates.
"I thought everything was OK until Corey
was rolling on the ground," forward Al Horford
said. "I was kind of worried for about 2 minutes
until he got up and was fine."
Some may question why, with a 17-point lead
and only a minute to go, Donovan didn't rotate

his bench into the game faster, but the coach
stood by his decision.
"Tennessee didn't concede the game,"
Donovan said. "They played all the way until
the end.
"I think my job and my goal as a coach is to
make sure that we play through all the way to
the end, and we play to the best of our ability.
Now, the likelihood of them coming back prob-


ably is not great. ... but stranger things have
happened."
Tennessee knows about losing a crucial com-
petitor to an injury.
Without leading scorer Chris Lofton, who
sat out with a high-ankle sprain, the Volunteers
couldn't generate an offensive response to UF's

As Amanda Castillo swung on
the uneven bars, preparing for her
dismount, her mother jumped up
and down in the crowd, waving
her orange and blue shaker and
yelling "stick it" again and again.
The cheer was only intended
for Castillo, but the rest of the
No.1 UF gymnastics team (8-0-1,
2-0-1 Southeastern Conference)
responded.
The Gators defeated No. 10
Aubut 197.65-195.625 Friday


night, scoring the highest of any
collegiate team this season.
UF coach Rhonda Faehn thinks
her team can score higher.
"They know even still
- that we can do better," Faehn
said. "We still have improve-
ments to make, and that's what's
exciting. We've had five relatively
good competitions, so we just
have to keep pacing them where
we just keep focusing on fixing
the little things."
Alabama previously held the
highest mark of 197.475, which it
posted against Auburn last week.
The Gators reset the mark


thanks to a record-breaking floor
routine ini front of 4,656 people at
the O'Connell Center.
"They know even still that
we can do better."
Rhonda Faehn
UF gymnastics coach


Ashley Reed, Amanda Castillo,
Corey Hartung, Katie Rue and
Savannah Evans combined to
post a 49.65 on floor exercise,
the highest team score on floor in


TUF's history.
Hartung received a 10 for
her performance, but the second
judge gave her a 9.9.
She had to settle for the aver-
age 9.95.
"It definitely felt like my best
routine this year," Hartung said:
"The other judge gave me a 9.9, so
obviously, there is something little
wrong with it."
Maybe it was the return of the
Gator chomp that gave UF some
extra motivation.

Horford's big


day proves


gurus wrong

According to the Wooden
Award Committee, Al
Horford isn't one of the
top 30 players in the nation.
The list of 30 athletes ex-
pected to compete for the
player of the year award was
released last week, notice-
ably without Horford's name.
On Saturday, the committee
members must have been watch-
ing their midseason All-America
team instead of Horford.
Instead of watching UF's ju-
nior forward put up a career-high
22 points, they gazed at Tennessee
shooting
guard Chris
Lofton' sit-
ting on the
bench with
a sprained
Nick Zaccardi ankle.

Horford's 13 rebounds, five as-
sists and three blocks, too.
I'll tell you one person
who had an up-close view of
Horford's night: Tennessee coach
Bruce Pearl.
"Al Horford, to me, is one of
the best big men in the country,"
Pearl said. "He uses his body re-
ally well. He's a man."
Though Horford remains
eligible for the award, UF coach
Billy Donovan shares my view on
the snubbing.
"He doesn't get enough re-
spect," Donovan said. "The fact
that the Wooden Award list is out
and he's not on it, that's mind-
boggling."
Everybody knows Horford is
capable of putting up these num-
bers nightly. Through January, he
ranked No. 6 in the country in
field-goal percentage.

55.6 percent field-goal mark.
"Their best player didn't play," forward
Joakim Noah said. "But you know what? We
play them again.
"We would want Chris Lofton to play
because that's an excuse for them to say their


best player didn't play."
After two last-second losses to the
Volunteers last season, the Gators were happy
to win so decisively.
"When we play teams like UT, who beat us
twice a season before, we were going to come
with the right focus," said Noah, who contrib-
uted 19 points, six rebounds and three blocks.
"This was one, of the reasons why I wanted
to come back to school was to play against


Tennessee."
Horford led UF (21-2, 8-0 SEC) with 13 re-
bounds and a career-high 22 points.
After a month of bleak free-throw shoot-
ing, Horford and the rest of the Gators posted
a respectable 73.5 percent for UF's best shoot-
"ing performance since it played Alabama-
Birmingham on Dec. 30.
"Me and Jo and Brett Swanson went last
night and worked on free-throw shooting,"
Horford said. "We're back on that habit since
before SEC started.
"We shoot about 200 free throws at the


.* practice court."
Tennessee coach Bruce
Pearl said he was impressed
Men's with the way UF played all-.
Basketball around and noticed a differ-
ence in the Gators from the
last time the two rivals met.
"I think they are better than they were last
year when we played them here," he said.
"You just see them do what they do, and they
do it over and over again.
"They honor the game with the way they
play it."


NICK-EL, from page 22

Against the Volunteers, he took advantage of countless
one-on-one post ups.
The one time the Vols doubled down on Horford, he
kicked out to Lee Humphrey for an open 3-pointer.
Down low, he teamed with Joakim Noah and Chris
Richard to outrebound Tennessee 26-6 in the first half.
Horford's got the all-around game, but the awards will
only come if he becomes a focal point of the offense.
Maybe if he played for teams like Tennessee and
Syracuse, he would get the chance to.
But with the way UF's talented and deep roster spreads
the ball around, it's impossible for anybody to average 20
.and 10.
And if Horford did become the center of attention, the
team would likely suffer.
Joakim Noah needs to dunk. Lee Humphrey needs to -
drain threes. Corey Brewer needs to drive. Taurean Green
needs to lead the attack.
Sadly, words like "double-doubles" and "points per
game" factor more into the Wooden picks than the one
word that matters most: wins.
So, when the Wooden committee finalized their list last
week, only three Gators made the cut: Noah, Brewer and
Green.
Instead of including Horford, a potential NBA Draft
lottery pick, stars from mediocre teams made the cut.
Michigan State's Drew Neitzel, the lone decent hold-
.over from the 2005 Final Four squad, made it because he
is the Spartans' only source of consistent offense.
Who can name what team Morris Almond plays for?
He's on the list.
Almond averages 27 points per game for Rice, an 11-10
squad in Conference USA.
Can you imagine what Horford would do as a featured
player in C-USA against the likes of East Carolina, SMU
and Tulane?
It's mind-boggling.

by Faehn.
After reviewing some of Reed's
routines, UF's coach text-messaged
the junior and asked if she knew her
capabilities.
"I actually was talking with her this
week about this, if she understood her

Faehn said. "She has so much talent

A VOLUME 100 ISSUE 92 Global C' no a warming confirmed By RANDI BERNFELD Alligator Contributing Writer According to a report on climate change released Friday, global warming is true, and human activity, especially the burning of fossil fuels, is very likely the driving force. The 21-page report, written by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, is the first volume of the "Fourth Assessment Report: Climate Change 2007." The panel consists of roughly 1,250 expert researchers who study peer-reviewed and scientific documents to 7 distill the information relevant to understand the causes of global warming, as well as the effects the heat-up is having on that planet and the options for mitigation and adaptation. The report stated that by the year 2100, temperatures likely will rise 3.5 to 8 degrees Fahrenheit, causing critical Mulkey water shortages, extreme weather pattems and glacier shrinkage. UF botany professor Steven Mulkey said the conununity should regard these findings as facts. "The issue of global warming is-not a balanced argument," said Mulkey. "Our climate is changing at a drastic rate. Global warming is as real as a heart attack." To add to the credibility of this report, last year was the warmest in the contiguous United States in more than a century, and 11 of the last 12 years rank among the 12 warmest years on record. The report also stated that by 2075, sea levels could rise from 2 to 7 feet, causing coastal flooding to sweep about 7 SEE WARMING, PAGE 4 0the independent florida ig atu ofF ,rd Pubihed5 byCampu Communcti, Inc of Gaievl, Florid LA -.~ ~ 1~ecycIe We~ EIIII. u Decide.

MONDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 2007 E ALLIGATOR, 3 Administrators respond to critical education report 0 THE REPORT FOUND FAULT WITH THE STATE UNIVERSITY SYSTEM. By JOEY CHINDAMO Alligator Writer jchindamo@alligator.org A report that criticized Florida's higher education system was released last month, but two university presidents think it's still too early to form definitive conclusions. The report, conductedby the Connecticutbased Pappas Consulting Group, scolded the State University System of Florida for its resources being spread too thin, its universities not cooperating and its lack of focus on undergraduate education. Frank T. Brogan, president of Florida Atlantic University, said it's important for universities to remain open-minded to the report's suggestions. "The plan is very thoughtful, very insightful, and while it evokes some emotions from current institutions, I think we need to give it an opportunity to work," he said. UF President Bernie Machen was unavailable for comment. According to the report, the system could bankrupt itself due not only to the state's low tuition rates but also the high cost of the Florida Bright Futures Scholarship Program and the Florida Prepaid College Plan. To solve some of the system's problems, the report recommended some universities focus solely on undergraduate education and not graduate degrees. The Florida Board of News Governors, which oversees the state's 11 public universities, responded to the report with an initiative called Forward By Design, which asks the public for suggestions via the board's Web site. Brogan said he is enthusiastic about the initiative because it asks for the public's input -something that is necessary for good decision-making, he added. "Leave it up to just policy-makers without getting the pulse of the general public, and you're in trouble," he said. He said both Bright Futures and the Prepaid program have provided hundreds of thousands of students in the state access to higher education they may never have had. Florida State University President T.K. Wetherell said more money is necessary for Florida's universities to become nationally prominent. "You can't be expected to run world-class universities on tuition that kindergarten students pay," he said. "I don't give a dang who you are, you can't do it." EAST GAINESVILLE City buys abandoned East Gainesville apartment complex By JESSICA RIFFEL Alligator Staff Writer jriffel@alligator.org The abandoned apartment complex was silent -the only sound was the wind rustling through an oak tree in the center courtyard. Then the camera crews arrived, with city officials following close behind. And soon there was a new sound: the buzz of excitement. "Do you feel it?" City Commissioner Scherwin Henry asked, wiggling his fingers in the air. "Do you feel it? The excitement of change." City officials had big grins on their faces Friday as they talked about the future of Kennedy Homes, an abandoned apartment complex in East Gainesville they purchased Wednesday for $1.95 million. City commissioners had been trying to buy the 15-acre property for two years as part of the city's effort to revitalize East Gainesville. At a press conference Friday, commissioners focused on the future of the land. They plan to put in mixed-income housing and encourage residents to buy the homes instead of renting. "Citizens take more pride in home ownership," said Henry, who grew up near Kennedy Homes, which is on Southeast Eighth Avenue. : And pride is what gives nearby residents the hope that the new developHenry ment won't fall into neglect like Kennedy Homes did, Henry said. Kennedy Homes, built as lowincome housing, was plagued with rat infestations, collapsing ceilings and a fire. It was shut down and abandoned in 2005, and its residents were sent to a hotel until the federal government found them housing. Since then, the brick buildings with dark green plywood covering doors and windows -have been an eyesore in East Gainesville. The project is part of the Southeast Gainesville Renaissance Initiative, a plan to revitalize the traditionally poorer part of town and draw in residents and businesses. "There is going to be a great with Chimpanzees ? Pr1 -T~r 1v transformation here," Henry said. "This is going to be an excellent hub for families." Doris Edwards, a resident of adjacent community Lincoln Heights, said she hopes commissioners will involve UF students in the design phase through the Witters Competition, in which students in the College of Design, Construction and Planning create practical solutions for development problems. "We can get the students involved to get some radical ideas -not just what old people think," she said. FREE SMOOTHIE GRAND OPENING MONDAY FEB STH Buy 1, Get I Free SM00THIE BOOST 1221 W.

4, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, FEBRUARY 5,2007 Bush leads push to cut gasoline consumption, find alternative fuels WARMING from page 1 million homes. Mulkey said this will have dire consequences for Floridians because a mere 9-inch sea rise will cause flooding along the coastlines. He and other experts also predict that more intense hurricanes could strike the state's coasts, where 80 percent of the population resides. "If we postpone or avoid planning for this," Mulkey said, "then there will be irretrievable losses of our natural'resources and a poorer quality of life." The panel on climate change was created by the World Meteorological Organization and the United Nations Environment Program in 1988. Since its creation, the panel has guided policy-makers globally on the impact of climate change. In 1995, the panel released its second report stating that humans had an influence in global warming. Following this assessment, the Kyoto Protocol was amended in 1997. This treaty assigns mandatory targets to reduce members' greenhouse gas emissions by 5.2 percent, compared to the year 1990: Kyoto works like a "cap-and-trade" program that gives companies a cap on the amount of pollution that can be emitted. Those able to beat the limits can sell allowances on the open market to other companies not yet in compliance. Currently, 169 nations have ratified the treaty. Australia and the United States have signed the treaty but refuse to ratify it. Although President George W. Bush has been criticized for not ratifying Kyoto and for failing to utter the words "global warming" in his State of the Union address last month, he admitted that warming climates are a fact. Bush also said that Congress is working on a series of measures to reduce gasoline consumption by 20 percent in 10 years. One of these plans includes a push for the use of alternative fuels like ethanol to reduce a reliance on foreign oil. Ethanol can be produced in different ways, such as burning sugar cane and switch grass. Thus far, corn has been the most widely used in producing ethanol, at about $2 per gallon. Lonnie 0. Ingram, the director of the Florida Center for Renewable Chemicals and 1nterH itl0nal Fuels, said News corn ethanol has not had a big impact on the environment. He said that in 2005, corn ethanol use in the United States reduced carbon dioxide emissions by roughly 7.8 million tons, which is equal to removing the annual emissions of more than 1 million cars. That's less than 3 percent of the nation's automobiles, he said. Ingram said scientists could use other products to make more ethanol, which will also reduce the world's petroleum intake. For example, he invented a bug made from bacteria that eats wood and other plant material to make ethanol. "Imagine taking this desk," he said, banging his knuckles on the mahogany desktop, "breaking it down and using it to fuel your car. Assistant professor Ted Schuur said fuel-efficient cars are not enough of a solution. "Reducing atmospheric carbon is a good idea, but the government needs to consider all the other climate-forcing factors that may be changing at the same time," he said. Later this year, the panel of climate change will release the full science volume, which will include more detailed information. It will also release a report about how people can adapt to the heat-up and another report on ways to reduce greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. "People think they had nothing to do with the drastic change in climate," said UF doctoral student Philip Kauth. "But we will be alive to see the serious consequences we have caused on our planet. Maybe next time we'll think twice about leaving our lights on."

MONDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, 5 Tornlado rgd Twisters strike central Fla., killing at least 20 By DREW HARWELL NICOLE SAFKER LUANNE DIETZ Alligator Staff Writea LADY LAKE -"I can't describe the feeling," said Jessie Graf as she inspected the soaked rubble she once called home. "It's like a nightmare I just couldn't wake up from. I'm still not awake." Not even the statistics -at least 20 dead, $100 million in damages -could hint at the emotion many homeowners felt after their property was demolished by a series of tornadoes thatswept through Central Florida early Friday morning. Graf, who had lived in her mobile home on Alma Street for more than 20 years, said the tornadoes reduced it to scrap within minutes. As Graf looked at her destroyed home and began -to walk away, tears rolled down her face. "I'll never get my house back," she said. Her son, Preston Graf, who lived with her in the home, said he was sleeping in the front bedroom of the trailer when a noise like a baseball bat thudding against the walls awoke him. As he retrieved a flashlight, the sound transformed into a loud i -__ --am m o n whooshing. The noise, he said, was his roof collapsing. After the winds died down, Preston exited the home to check the damage. Among the downed trees and the scrap metal from nearby buildings, he said, were several injured people. Their bodies, bloodied and beaten, lay drenched on the ground. Ambulances that came to take them to a nearby hospital couldn't reach the victims because of downed trees, so one of Preston's neighbors took them there in his pickup truck. Florida National Guard Maj. Gen. Douglas Burnett, who spoke at the site of the now-destroyed Lady Lake Church of God on Saturday, said the search and rescue effort was completed within the first 24 hours, with operations Friday limited to aiding those affected by the storm. He said when he flew over the area in a Black Hawk helicopter to survey the damage, he saw homes that were flattened from the impact of the storm. "It looked like a bomb went off," he said. The destruction stretched for 50 miles, said Chris Tenaro, a soldier with the National Guard who also appraised the demolition from above. "I've seen everything from 'uanne UeZ / miigaor marr Florida Governor Charlie Crist flies high above Lady Lake on Saturday with senators Mel Martinez and Bill Nelson to get an aerial view of the devastation in Central Florida caused by Friday's severe weather. (hurricanes) Andrew to Katrina," he said. "This is just as bad." Tenaro said the damage he had seen done to houses and buildings in the tornadoes' path resembled a shotgun blast. "That's steel," he said, gesturing at treetops garnished with fiberglass, wood and roofing shingles. "That's bent steel up there." At about 3:30 a.m. Friday, Lady Lake Church Pastor Larry Lynn received a call from a member of his church informing him that there might be damage to the building. When he arrived to inspect the damage, he found the church in ruins. "I just took a deep breath, said, 'What was done, was done' and that there was nothing else we could do about it," he said, "and we moved on." Scott Lynn, his son, dug through the debris of the church to look for tapes and CDs on Saturday. "I've seen everything from (hurricanes) Andrew to Katrina. This is just as bad Chris Tenaro National Guard soldier Church staff had recorded the pastor's weekly sermons for the past 3.5 years. "These are the only records of years of work," he said. "You just don't expect that to happen." Church members gathered alongside Lynn to help salvage Nicole Safker/ Alligator Staff LEFT: Mary Smart assesses the damage inside her friend Jessie Graf's mobile home Saturday in Lady Lake, just one day after a severe storm ripped through the Central Florida area and left at least 20 dead.

Jonathan Hoewing, along with about 20 friends, drove eight hours from the Florida Keys on Friday to help with the restoration efforts. Hoewing, 26, said his group had been training in dive rescue and was scheduled to have a free weekend. However, upon hearing news of the destruction, the friends decided to make the trip. "We don't plan for anything," he said, "but we kind of hope and pray for the best." Aussey Heath, a worker with Burford's Tree Surgeons, was one of the hundreds of employees to work extra hours moving rubble, repairing roads and mending downed power lines. He said that Friday, a day after the damage, he had been working from 4 a.m. to midnight. He added they would most likely be working that schedule for days. Many homeowners in the area, however, were fortunate enough to receive little damage. Tracey Schofield, who lives across the road from the church, said her house was unscathed. In fact, her property had tinproved in some ways: An out-ofground swimming pool and a shed had blown into her backyard from down the road. Ed Reposa, who lived on Alma Street about a mile from the church, said his house and a tnemorial he created for soldiers overseas had also been spared from any damage. "I'm not a religious man, but I believe in God," Reposa said. "I believe he had something to do with it."

6, ALLIGATOR N MONDAY, FEBRUARY 5,2007 In hot water Global warming is here to stay he results are in, and the future doesn't look good. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released its report Friday on the state of worldwide global warming. The report declared that global warming is "unequivocal" and will "continue for centuries." French President Jacques Chirac is threatening to slam the United States with a "carbon tax" if it doesn't ratify the Kyoto treaty and its successor, when it runs out in 2012. We know the idea of France standing up to the United States is laughable. But with the power of the European Union behind Chirac, President Bush should prick up his ears. The carbon tax would be added on to U.S. exports to encourage the United States to ratify the Kyoto treaty -and the E.U. is the largest importer of American goods. France also proposed creating a new environmental body to slow global warming, and 45 other countries signed on in agreement. But the United States did not join those countries, despite the fact that it alone produces about one-fourth of the world's greenhouse gases. The United States is rich enough, advanced enough and powerful enough to be a leader -if not THE leader -in slowing the inevitable global climate change. But instead, it sits back and laughs in the faces of countries trying to enact positive change. The United States could enact an emissions cap-andtrade program. This would allow each company a set amount -a cap -of greenhouse emissions. It could then emit only that much. If it had any left over at the end of the period, it could sell or trade it to another company that needs to emit more gases. Then the United States could regulate how much carbon and other greenhouse gases are emitted into the atmosphere. Fuel economies should also be raised, and this has been talked about for years. This one's obvious -people would burn less fuel driving. While some argue that this would encourage people to just drive more, that argument doesn't have much hold. Did people start driving less when gas prices started rising? Not really. Another possibility is to enact a higher gas tax. Most of Europe does this -that's why gas in Great Britain and Germany costs about twice as much as in the United States. By charging, say, an additional 50 cents per gallon of gas, people will eventually drive less. It would also provide a constant source of revenue for the government. But unfortunately, this is often seen as political suicide for any politician who proposes it, so we probably won't see it in America anytime soon. In his 2007 State of the Union address, President Bush finally recognized that climate change is here to stay. It's time for him to get behind his words, join the rest of the world in the struggle against rising global t emperatures and coastal water levels, and make some changes in the United States -and the rest of the world. We could be the most powerful force in the fight to slow global warming, but we're too busy letting our pride and selfishness get in the way.

ALLIGATOR www.alligator.org/opinions -dak~~~~ n27 khi(\AC~ s .09 Gtlmn Writing on the Wall s the fifth annual Writing on the Wall Project came to a close Friday, students finally witnessed the results of their hard work. Evil organizations renounced their racism, sexism and communism. Thousands realized their lives of eating children and abusing the elderly were not only morally wrong but also hugely unpopular. Homophobia was resolved. Terrorism stopped. And a white kid high-fived a black kid. Gotcha! Really, a bunch of people who don't like being called names agreed they don't like being called names. Then they smashed up a few thousand dollars worth of your money. There are many problems with the Writing on the Wall Project. Perhaps the biggest is the fact that the hardcore offenders -KKK members and neo-Nazis -don't show up. They aren't looking for enlightenment. So a bunch of people who already support the wall continue to support it. And if the offenders did show up -what then? Do you see "Dirty Jew" written on a wall, realize you've offended someone and then turn in your hood to the local Grand Dragon? Probably not. Of the five or 10 people around each time I went to the wall, at least two openly mocked the project. What do you think they learned? Every night that the wall stood, it was guarded all night by a group of volunteers. Clearly, the power of the wall itself was not enough to ward off those who disagreed with it. Some bricks even opposed the project itself. Some would celebrate this as the epitome of the all-inclusive nocensoring policy, but it is in fact concrete (sorry) evidence that this wall, which purports to oppose division, is itself divided. One brick opposed Israel, another Palestine. You can't The views expressed here are no Reader response Today's question: Should the United States do more to combat global warming? tears down nothing embrace both. Because some bricks contradict other bricks, no one could support the entire wall -so it failed as a symbol of unity and tolerance. If one thing could be gathered Patrick Barrett from the Writing on the Wall, it's Grin and Barrett that prejudice is bad. Is that news letters@alligator.org to the people who saw the wall come down? Several bricks .expressed resentment over the assumption by some people that black students at UF are here only because of affirmative action. But the fact is a percentage of black UF students would not have gotten into UF if they were white. That's the whole point of the policy. Affirmative action is a serious and complex issue. But those bricks weren't against the policy, only the perception. While many problems can be solved by writing on bricks and smashing them, this just isn't one of them. Those students who spent the night guarding the wall endured some cold weather. A lot of sincere effort went into this project. Shouldn't we at least celebrate that? No. Racism and prejudice are elusive devils that don't fall to mere sincerity. Their best weapon might be the ability to lead their enemies down paths of triviality and symbolism. If we celebrate a sincere but ineffective gesture of tolerance, we risk locking more idealists into this cycle of meaningless display -because when you think you've found the best way to fight, you stop looking for a better one.

Golden Key important and valuable This is in response to Patrick Barrett's column from Jan. 29. He questioned the need for honor societies -Golden Key, specifically -and even said they are "harmful." Those who are involved with Golden Key realize what a ridiculous idea that is. Barrett's assertion that it's meaningless to be in the academic top 15 percent of upperclassmen is ignorant. It can be easy to focus in on a little corner of the world like UF, where everyone seems motivated, active and successful. But widen your scope a little, and you'll see the masses who desperately tried to get into UF but couldn't. Take a second, and consider the students here at UF who have struggled to make passable grades and who would greatly appreciate being recognized for a legitimate achievement like Golden Key membership. Step outside of your own selfinterest for one second and think of what it means to your family members -who often sacrificed a great deal to put you in your position -to have some acknowledgement of their support and your hard work. The most revealing detail of Barrett's editorial is the truth in this statement: "I received an invitation to join Golden Key International Honour Society last year. It didn't mean much to me, but my mom said she'd pay the initiation fee, so I joined." Even if he cannot see it, Barrett's mother realizes her son's accomplishments. Despite academic success, the hardest thing to learn is perspective.

The lion followed a masked man with a fan as the music quickly transitioned to a pulsing drumbeat. The lion finally leaped into the audience, kicking off the annual Chinese American Student Association's Chinese New Year Show. Just in case you can't grasp how heavy Chinese New Year is on our traditional calendar, it's as if you put Thanksgiving, Christmas and regular New Year's together. If they had a love child, it would be Chinese New Year." George Liu CASA president and UF senior The actual date of the Chinese New Year is Feb. 18, but the celebration at UF began Saturday night. The crowd filled the Reitz Union Ballroom's 500 seats, leaving only standing room for the Year of the Pig celebration. The lion dance was one of many acts highlighted in the show, which was named "Spring into the New Year" and which blended both traditional and modem aspects of Chinese culture. CASA's Traditional Dance Troupe performed classical Chinese dances, gracefully twirling handkerchiefs and fans. The Gainesville Chinese School also demonstrated traditional Chinese dancing with children who spun pink umbrellas. More contemporary aspects of the show included musical performances, a hip-hop dance performed by CASA members and skits put on by members of CASA and the Pi Delta Psi Fraternity "Just in case you can't grasp how heavy Chinese New Year is on our traditional calendar, it's as if you put Thanksgiving, Christmas and regular New Year's together," said CASA president and IJO senior George Liu.

MONDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 2007 N ALLIGATOR, 9 Ticketed bikers must pay citation E TRAFFIC SAFTEY CLASS IS NO LONGER AN OPTION. By CHRISTINE MOYE Alligator Contributing Writer Bicycle traffic violators will no longer be able to attend a bicycle traffic safety class in lieu of paying for the citation. Due to a disagreement between Alachua County judges and the University Police Department, the Alachua County Clerk of the Court will no longer accept certificates of completion from the class. "(From now on) we won't be dismissing a ticket if you turn it into the traffic bureau," said Mary Grace Curtain, chief deputy clerk of Alachua County. Traffic violators will have only two options: Pay the state fees for the ticket, or appeal it in court. This went into effect Thursday. The previous arrangement between the judges and UPD was only an agreement and not a law. The judges simply asked the clerk's office to accept the certificates, Curtain said. "We can't do something that's not statute or ruled," Curtain said. "There's no authority." The agreement is no longer valid Nowa because the judges .s in Alachua County have changed in the past few years, and an amendment to Article Five in the Florida ConstityVtion took effect in July 2004. The J amendment regulates guidelines about judiciary matters, and nowhere does it specifically mention bicycle citations and bicycle traffic safety school, Curtain said. UPD Maj. Brad Barber said that from Jan. 31, bicycle traffic violators still have 30 days to complete the class. Class will continue as normal, but UPD isn't sure whether class will take place after that, Barber said. Because UPD writes about 1,000 traffic citations to bicyclists on campus every calendar year, the bicycle safety class was usually full, said Lt. Robert Wagner, a spokesman for UPD. The most common bicycle traffic violations include riding at night without a light, running a stop sign and wearing headphones while riding.

20, ALLIGATOR N MONDAY, FEBRUARY 5,2007 UF MEN'S TENNIS Young UF surprises No. 2 Baylor By PHIL KEGLER Alligator Writer As the UF men's tennis team continues -to surpass expectations, it may start being called something unexpected: a contender. Key play from upperclassmen and "freshmen helped lead the Gators to a 4-3 upset against No. 2 Baylor (4-1) on Sunday. No. 15 UF (3-0) started off with an easy 6-1 victory against Furman (1-3) on Friday night. Sunday's match caused more could sweep their three matches, drama against Baylor, as the doubles point would come down to the freshman duo of Dan Cash and Geoffrey Barton after the Gators split at the No. 1 and No. 2 positions. The match would go the distance as Cash and Barton gave UF the doubles point with a 9-8 (4) victory. "(Cash and Barton's victory) gave Greg (Ouellete), Jesse (Levine) and Nestor (Briceno) a chance to understand that if they Kim Klement / Alligator UF junior Nestor Briceno returns the ball during the Gators' win over Ole Miss 5-2 on March 3, 2006, at the Ring Tennis Complex in Gainesville, Florida. we could win," Coach Andy Jackson said. "Those two freshmen made the difference." Jackson tried to bank on the momentum of the big doubles win, substituting Cash aiid Barton into singles positions, No. 5 and 6, respectively. Barton couldn't keep the momentum going, however, losing 6-0, 6-0 to No. 66 Denes Lukacs, knotting the team score at 1-1. Straight-set victories by Levine (6-1, 6-3) and No. 16 Ouellette (61, 6-2) in the No.1 and 2 matches gave the Gators a 3-1 advantage. "I was pumped up from the very start in the doubles and brought that into the singles," Ouellette said. "Baylor's been a powerhouse in college tennis for the past five years. "They've always been really tough to play against. We just took it to them." After leading 4-1 in the first set, Cash lost 12 of the next 13 games to fall 6-4, 6-1, leaving the Gators with a 3-2 edge. All focus turned to the No. 3 singles match between No. 60 Briceno and Matija Zgaga. Briceno took the first set and was up 4-2 in the second before Zgaga took three straight games. Briceno fended off a possible third set by taking the next three, giving him a 6-1, 7-5 victory and clinching the Gators' upset. Sunday's victory was especially big for the Gators as they head away from home for their next two matches. UFwill continue a challenging schedule, going against No. 7 Illinois on Feb. 13 and No. 13 Florida State on Feb. 17. Even after the win, Jackson feels his team has a ways to go. "I would be lying if I said I wasn't surprised," Jackson said. "We beat a contender, (but that) doesn't make us a contender. "The schedule is set for, really, a top-5 team. We have some guys who have talent, but need to develop. If some of those three or four guys step up, would that change things? Absolutely." Santa Fe rolls in shutout victory By EVAN DREXLER Alligator Writer By the top or nie e 'e whpn Santa Fe had a 10-0 lead, even the scoreboard operator was exhausted. "My fingers are getting tired from pushing all these buttons," Matt Medlock said. That's the kind of day it was for the relentless Saints, who put up 20 hits in a 14-0 victory against South Florida Community College on Saturday afternoon. After a four-day layoff and a game canceled Friday due to rain, Coach Johnnny Wiggs was worried the team would come out rusty and lethargic. But the Saints (4-0) were nothing of the sort. They started their scoring early. After Jared Stephenson and Anthony Randich singled and Andrew Migetz was hit by a pitch, the Saints added three more singles to score four runs in the second inning. Starting pitcher Billy Whitaker (2-0) threw his second shutout of the season. He allowed four hits in six innings and struck out three South Florida batters. "That's what I love to see," Whitaker said of the shutout. "Absolutely." It was a cold day, and the pitcher had tostretch between innings to keep his blood going, but the Saints batters did not seem Whitaker to be affected. k They were more than eager to help Whitaker pick up the win, and the five-hit second inning was just the beginning of their day. SFCC added three runs in the fifth, sixth and seventh innings. In the fifth, the Saints had five more hits, all singles, to bring their lead to 7-0. In the sixth, center fielder Eugene Garnett got the inning going with a single. Designated hitter Todd Waller brought him home with an RBI double and Randich added his third hit of the game. He finished the game with four hits and four runs scored for SFCC. The seventh-inning scoring got going when Johnny Kirkland walked on five pitches. Stephenson doubled and Randich followed with his fourth single. Migetz hit a two-run double to cap the scoring in the inning. "It's such a positive thing knowing that your hitters can help you out," Whitaker said. Eight of the nine Saints starters had hits. Gamett, Stevenson and third baseman Chris Warren had three hits each. Relief pitchers Chad Brock and Caleb Fuddy came in to pitch the final three innings of shutout baseball, giving up three hits combined. "I'm really lucky this year to have a pitching staff I can rely on," Whitaker said. Wiggs will continue to count on his pitching staff throughout the season. "It revolves and starts with the tempo and tone of the pitchers," Wiggs said. "Once Billy came out and established it for us with six zeroes, I thought we had the win." Wilcox leads Gators divers, earns two runner-up finishes E THE SOPHMORE EARNED HIGH MARKS ON THE 1AND 3-METER BOARDS. -By SCOTT ROSEN Alligator Writer Tack two more Southeastern Conference diving honors to sophomore Jonathan Wilcox's already impressive resum6. In the opening competitions of the SEC Diving Championships, Wilcox captured two runner-up finishes in as many days at Kentucky. Wilcox and senior Justin Schmidt represented the men's team. The women's team was represented by freshman Jennifer Funch and sophomore Whitney Stem. Wilcox's first second-place finish came on Friday in the 1-meter dive with a score of 357.50. Then, on Saturday, Wilcox scored 395.45 off the 3M board, also eating him second. Both scores marked collegiate postseason highs. "Jonathan is diving well and he's diving relaxed," UF diving coach Donnie Craine said. "I can see him having fun out there. He's finally starting to believe that he actually belongs here." Wilcox's best dive of the weekend came on Saturday, where in the fourth round he averaged a score of 7.5 on a reverse three-anda-half somersault from the tuck position. The dive carried a 3.5 degree of difficulty. During Saturday's competition, Schmidt finished 14th off the 3M board. He scored 55.5 in the sixth round on his best dive of a night, a forward two-and-a-half somersault with a twist. "He's finally starting to believe that he actually belongs here." Donnie Craine UF diving coach "Justin scored some points for us today, and he did a decent job," Craine said. "After having shoulder surgery last summer, it's amazing what he's able to do right now. Both guys are really doing a great job." On Sunday, both Schmidt and Wilcox competed off the platform, finishing sixth and third, respectively. For the women, Funch finished 16th in the 1M, 17th off the 3M and placed eighth off the platfonn. Stem took 20th in the 1M and 15th in the 3M. "The women have scored as many points on springboard this year as they did last year," Craine said. "They're right on the edge of making finals, just a few things here and there kept them out." The swim teams head to Kentucky on Wednesday to compete in their portion of the 2007 SEC Championships.

S po rts MONDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 2007 UF routs Vols, Brewer OK after late fall EDONOVAN DOESN'T EXPECT THE 7JUNIOR TO MISS PRACTICE TIME. By JENNA MARINA Alligator Staff Writer J., jmarina@alligator.org With a minute left, not one of the 12,222 in attendance at the O'Connell Center made a sound. It didn't matter to Gators fans that UF was up by 17 points. It didn't matter to Volunteers fans that Tennessee was about to lose its fifth Southeastern Conference game. None of it mattered because forward Corey Brewer was writhing on the floor, clutching his right knee. "C'mon, Corey. Get up, baby," a fan shouted from the stands to break the silence. Seconds earlier Brewer tried to block JaJuan Smith's layup attempt but collided with the Tennessee guard instead. As the student section chanted his name, Brewer got off the floor and slightly limped to the bench. Coach Billy Donovan said Brewer was fine after top-ranked UF's 94-78 victory against the Volunteers on Saturday, and doctors believed the forward just bruised his knee. Donovan doesn't expect that Brewer will need X-rays and thinks he should be able to practice today.

The cheer was only intended for Castillo, but the rest of the No.1 UF gymnastics team (8-0-1, 2-0-1 Southeastern Conference) responded. The Gators defeated No. 10 Auburn 197.65-195.625 Friday night, scoring the highest of any collegiate team this season. UF coach Rhonda Faehn thinks her team can score higher. "They know -even still -that we can do better," Faehn said. "We still have improvements to make, and that's what's exciting. We've had five relatively good competitions, so we just have to keep pacing them where we just keep focusing on fixing the little things." Alabama previously held the highest mark of 197.475, which it posted against Auburn last week. The Gators reset the mark thanks to a record-breaking floor routine in front of 4,656 people at the O'Connell Center. "They know -even still -that we can do better." Rhonda Faehn UF gymnastics coach Ashley Reed, Amanda Castillo, Corey Hartung, Katie Rue and Savannah Evans combined to post a 49.65 on floor exercise, the highest team score on floor in lIF's history. Hartung received a 10 for her performance, but the second judge gave her a 9.9. She had to settle for the average -9.95. "It definitely felt like my best routine this year," Hartung said. "The other judge gave me a 9.9, so obviously, there is something little wrong with it." Maybe it was the return of the Gator chomp that gave UF some extra motivation. In UF's tie against Georgia last SEE GYM, PAGE 23 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Horford's big day proves gurus wrong ccording to the Wooden Award Committee, Al Horford isn't one of the top 30 players in the nation. The list of 30 athletes expected to compete for the player of the year award was released last week, noticeably without Horford's name. On Saturday, the committee members must have been watching their midseason All-America team instead of Horford. Instead of watching UF's junior forward put up a career-high 22 points, they gazed at Tennessee s h o o t i n g guard Chris Lofton sitting on the bench with a sprained Nick Zaccardi ankle. Nick-el Coverage R ather nzaccardi@alligator.org t H r e at Horford dominating Tennessee's frontcourt in the post, they tuned into Syracuse's Demetris Nichols put up 8 points on 3-of-10 shooting against lowly Depaul. They must have missed Horford's 13 rebounds, five assists and three blocks, too. I'll tell you one person who had an up-close view of Horford's night: Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl. "Al Horford, to me, is one of the best big men in the country," Pearl said. "He uses his body really well. He's a man." Though Horford remains eligible for the award, UF coach Billy Donovan shares my view on the snubbing. "He doesn't get enough respect," Donovan said. "The fact that the Wooden Award list is out and he's not on it, that's mindboggling." Everybody knows Horford is capable of putting up these numbers nightly. Through January, he ranked No. 6 in the country in field-goal percentage. SEE NICK-EL. PAGE 23 M 2003: Quarterback Chris Leak signs with the Gators.

"But you know what? We play them again. "We would want Chris Lofton to play because that's an excuse for them to say their best player didn't play." After two last-second losses to the Volunteers last season, the Gators were happy to win so decisively. "When we play teams like UT, who beat us twice a season before, we were going to come with the right focus," said Noah, who contributed 19 points, six rebounds and three blocks. "This was one, of the reasons why I wanted to come back to school was to play against Tennessee." Horford led UF (21-2, 8-0 SEC) with 13 rebounds and a career-high 22 points. After a month of bleak free-throw shooting, Horford and the rest of the Gators posted a respectable 73.5 percent for UF's best shooting performance since it played AlabamaBirmingham on Dec. 30. "Me and Jo and Brett Swanson went last night and worked on free-throw shooting," Horford said. "We're back on that habit since before SECastarted. "We shoot about 200 free throws at the Kim Wilmath / Alligator Staff practice court." Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl said he was impressed Men's with the way UF played all-. Basketball around and noticed a difference in the Gators from the last time the two rivals met. "I think they are better than they were last year when we played them here," he said. "You just see them do what they do, and they do it over and over again. "They honor the game with the way they play it." Reed takes event titles, all-around competition in win GYM, from page 22 week, Faehn decided to axe the tradition from floor exercise. She believed it would be too much of a distraction in the hostile Georgia environment. However, the gymnasts were happy to have it back. "It's great to be back home (and) put those Gator Chomps back in our floor routine," Castillo said. "It felt like something was missing." It was a career night for Castillo's former club teammate, Reed. The junior captured the individual' Castillo apparatus titles on vault, balance beam and tied for the top spot on floor. She placed second on uneven bars. In addition, Reed won the allaroind title with a score of 39.675. Reed responded to a challenge set by Faebn. After reviewing some of Reed's routines, UF's coach text-messaged the junior and asked if she knew her capabilities. "I actually was talking with her this week about this, if she understood her potential and just how good she is," Faehn said. "She has so much talent that people would kill for.

Down low, he teamed with Joakim Noah and Chris Richard to outrebound Tennessee 26-6 in the first half. Horford's got the all-around game, but the awards will only come if he becomes a focal point of the offense. Maybe if he played for teams like Tennessee and Syracuse, he would get the chance to. But with the way UF's talented and deep roster spreads the ball around, it's impossible for anybody to average 20 and 10. And if Horford did become the center of attention, the team would likely suffer. Joakim Noah needs to dunk. Lee Humphrey needs to drain threes. Corey Brewer needs to drive. Taurean Green needs to lead the attack. Sadly, words like "double-doubles" and "points per game" factor more into the Wooden picks than the one word that matters most: wins. So, when the Wooden committee finalized their list last week, only three Gators made the cut: Noah, Brewer and Green. Instead of including Horford, a potential NBA Draft lottery pick, stars from mediocre teams made the cut. Michigan State's Drew Neitzel, the lone decent holdover from the 2005 Final Four squad, made it because he is the Spartans' only source of consistent offense. Who can name what team Morris Almond plays for? He's on the list. Almond averages 27 points per game for Rice, an 11-10 squad in Conference USA. Can you imagine what Horford would do as a featured player in C-USA against the likes of East Carolina, SMU and Tulane? It's mind-boggling. I t H cjt llll, 'S h-e r #2
