This is getting ridiculous.
UF made opposing players look
like they had just gotten out of
bed and barely combed their hair
- agam
Percy Hlarvin made scoring
touchdowns look easier than cook-
ing Ramen again.
The Gators read the opponent's
quarterback like a nursery rhyme
and added to their interception
total again.
Perhaps what's even more ri-
diculous than anything is, as South
Carolina coach Steve Spurrier put
it, the Gators are a four-game win-
ning streak away from their second
national championship in three
years. Of course, that's assuming
the Gators make it past Florida
State in two weeks and then a
matchup with No. 1 Alabama
intesou reastrnt Confeoence


m i theeBCS, would pro aly pla


the championship game.
The run this UF football team is
on is one that the 1996 Gators title-
winning team would give a stand-
ing ovation. That '96 team scored
an absurd 376 points in conference
play. This year's team scored 359.
And that's with the majority of
their second-string offense playing
in the second half of many of those
games.
In the stadium that Spurrier
made famous, the biggest loss he
had previously suffered as a
player or coach was a 12-point
defeat when he was manning the
sidelines in 1993 against FSU.
That's until he and his now-
dirt-covered visors came into
Gainesville showcasing an offense
with a colorblindness problem that
made it unable to distinguish blue
jerseys from white ones.
"We got royally beat," Spurrier
said.
Beat. Throttled. Embarrassed.

llREIGNING STEP CHAMPIONS
TOOK HOME TROPHIES.

By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Incarnations of spacewomen, prison-
ers, Oompa-Loompas and Sean "Diddy"
Combs pounded the stage of the Phillips
Center for Performing Arts on Saturday
night
Four UF fraternities and four sororities
from the National Panhellenic Counci
portrayed the characters as part of the an-
nual Battle of the Greeks Step Show.
About 1,400 students piled into the
center to watch the competition, spon-
sored by the nine-member greek council.
Although the Battle of the Greeks has
only existed for four years, its predeces-
sor, the Black Greek Expedition, has been
around since the late 1990s, said John
Foster, a member of the show's publicity

Some of the themes included swash-
buckling pirates, space expeditions, a
spoof of MTV's "Making the Band" and a
futuristic voyage.
Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity started
off the night on the right foot liter-
ally when they performed their routine
blindfolded and standing on one leg.
The uniqueness of the routine earned
extra points with the nine judges.
Some of the performers took advan-


tage of special effects, such as fog and
black lights, for their performances. Alpha
Kappa Alpha Sorority, whose show was
based on a journey to Mars, used strobe
Eights to simulate a feeling of low gravity.
Groups also made short video clips to
help narrate their storylines.
Acrobatics and stunts were also used
in routines. The pirates of Delta Sigma
Theta Sorority made a human compass
while spinning and lifting a girl, who
posed as the needle.
Performers wove elements such as
jump ropes and swords into some of the
performances. Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity
and Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority used
canes in their routines, with one dancer
banging her cane so hard against the stage
that it broke into three pieces.
Once the organizations finished
competing, UF's Apocalypse Dance
Troupe performed and R&B artist Bobby
Valentino put on a concert.
Audience members sang and danced
along while waiting for the judges' re-
sults. Once the scores were tallied, the
Philips Center became quiet as the audi-
ence awaited the news.
Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity and Delta
Sigma Theta Sorority last year's reign-
mgoe ampar's worth of bragn rihop
Foster said he was p ese with the
execution of this year's show.
"It was quite possibly the best one
yet," he said.

The ceremony drew more than

"Together as a community

She said there have been na-

While construction continues, the UAA
has signed three coaches and 24 players
for the team.
The coaches are head coach Amanda
O'Leary and assistant coaches Jennifer
Ulehla and Erica LaGrow.
LaGrow was recently invited to be part
of the U.S. Lacrosse World Cup Training
Team.
When the stadium is complete, the UF
lacrosse team will begin practice in June
2009 and compete in Division I of the
NCAA in spring 2010.
"To add a women's sport was a funda-

UF is constructing a lacrosse stadium
for the new women's lacrosse team that
should be finished by J~uly 2009.
The stadium, which cost almost $14
million, is on Hull Road across from the
Katie Seashole Pressly Softball Stadium.
The lacrosse stadium is solely funded
by UF's University Athletic Association,
or UAA, and will consist of about 1,400
seats and concession stands.
Bahar Armaghani, project manager for
the stadium, said construction is running
on time.
The stadium will also serve as a prac-


tice field for the UF~ soccer team.
A contract between the UAA and UF.
states that the land the soccer team uses
for a practice field is needed for an in-
tramural sports field, Associate Athletic
Director Chip Howard said.
He added that the soccer team would
continue to play in their stadium because
it holds more people.
Soccer games average about 4,000
people a game.
The stadium will be equipped with
locker rooms, concessions, additional
parking and a sidewalk.
When construction is done, Hull Road
will have a sidewalk on both sides of the
street.


Shands at UF for their contribu-
tions to diabetic research and
prevention.


Desmond Schatz, a UF pro-
fessor of medicine and diabetic
research, spoke after the mayor


and said 23 million Americans
have diabetes and 53 million are
predisposed to develop it.
Schatz said awareness is
critical because if more people
understand diabetes, support for
research and accessible health
care will grow.
"Not only do we need money,"
he said. "We need you."
Rep. Charles Chestnut de-
scribed diabetes as a silent killer.
As a diabetic, he said he has had
to change his entire lifestyle to
stay healthy.
At the end of the ceremony,
attendants formed a circle and
bjlew bubbles around Century
Tower, which was illuminated by
blue spotlights.
Kathryn Parker, education co-
ordinator for the Diabetes Center
of Excellence, said the bubbles
symbolized hope for the 236 mil-
lion people living with diabetes
worldwide.

The Department of Motor
Vehicles' mobile unit provided
identification cards, which are
often necessary to sign up for ser-
vices, said Barbara Satterthwaite,
DMV examiner specialist.
"You have to have an ID to get
your foot in the door for anything,"
Satterthwaite said.
James said that's all most peo-
ple want an opportunity. But it's
not easy to come by.
"A lot of us just can't get that
one break," he said. "People need
to take off their judgment and real-
ize we're all in this together."


"I didn't have a lot of hair to cut
off anyway," he said with a laugh.
Others at the plaza sat around
picnic tables sharing meals or
sprawled on the grass, picking at
banjos and playing harmonicas.
"The main thing about any
organization here is to help the
people, the citizens of Alachua
County," said Marie Small of
Choices, a health services provider
for the uninsured.
One volunteer, Tony Morales,
of Tampa, repaired bicycles for
anyone who brought one over.
Morales said it wasn't long ago
that he was homeless too.
"I've been on the other side

said.
Another man, Danny Gryggs,
said he rides his bike 23 miles from
Hawthorne to volunteer every
week with Arupa's Home Van, an
organization that provides food
for people downtown.
"You do not go hungry in this
town," Gryggs said.

About two dozen organizations

and clothes were stacked on tables


throughout the week in the dorms

"Gainesville has one of the big-
gest homeless populations," Tapia
said. "It's important to show that
we don't just go to school here.
We actually care and want to do
something about it."
Both Tapia and Bartra said that
students help alleviate the state
of hunger and homelessness not
only during the week of events,
but also by joining or volunteer-
ing with other service organiza-
tions throughout the year.

The events continue tonight at

in the Graham
On Recreation Room.
c~asrnpus At the banquet, stu-
dents will be divided
into three groups
consisting of a poor, middle and
elite class, Bartra said.
The division serves to help stu-
dents learn about the disparities
between classes in society, said
co-chair Ana Tapia.


"In society you don't get to
choose what class you're born
into," Tapia said.
Tapia said students will receive
different amounts of food and
treatment based on the class they
are divided into.
The event will also feature
three speakers who have experi-
enced homelessness, Tapia said.
The events end Friday at 6
p.m. in the Graham Gallery with
performances from student orga-
nizations and information about
hunger and the homeless.
A canned food drive will run


for Leadership and Service that
is assisted by the Black Student
Union, SISTUHS, the Service
Ambassadors and the Inter-
Residence Hall Association.
The week's events kick off with
the Hunger and Homelessness
Organization Fair today on the
Reitz Union Colonnade from 11
a.m. to 2 p.m.
"The purpose is to have stu-

by joining other student organiza-

year-round basis," said Shantelle

Symbolic event lacks

significant impact

ynow, we think it's safe to assume Gainesville touts
dency is especially obvious on UF's campus, where
protests are as common as man-crushes on Percy Harvrin.
You can rarely make it through Turlington without some
random activist group informing you of their humanitarian
cause of the week.
That's exactly why we're not surprised UF student orga-
nizations are not afraid to push the importance of sharing
the wealth.
In keeping with this UF tradition, today marks the be-
ginning of Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week.
In addition to a weeklong canned food drive, the week of
awareness will also be hosting the Oxfam Hunger Banquet.
The banquet is structured to emphasize class disparity in
the U.S., especially the hardships endured by the less for-
tunate.
Students at the banquet wil be divided into three groups
to represent society's poor, middle class and elite. Each
group will be fed and treated differently for the duration
of the meal.
We're pretty sure this might have made some sense on
paper, but when we try to visualize how this would actually
play out, we're a bit more skeptical.
How effective could one night of reduced dinner por-
tions and insincere, faked insults be? After all, everyone in
attendance still gets to eat, which we can safely assume isn't
the case for those actually living day to day on the streets.
We highly doubt that anyone not already concerned with
the plight of the homeless would revamp their entire out-
look because they were given a half-serving of beans rather
than a filet mignon.

Pursuit of

you've ever seen the
Gotta Give" featuring
aging stars Jack Nicholson
and Diane Keaton, then you
know firsthand the horrors
and possible pitfalls of over-
the-hill intimacy. In one of
the movie's opening scenes,
Nicholson's character has a
heart attack as he is putting
the moves on a disturbingly
younger woman.
You should stay away
from this film simply for
comfort's sake if you have
a weak stomach, but if you
want to avoid the night-
mare-inducing experience
of viewing a wrinkled sex-
capade in person, then you'll
want to stay far away from
Mexico City.
On -Dec. 1, the capital
city will be providing free
Viagra, Levitra and Cialis to
male residents 70 and older.
The reasoning behind


Hap-penis
this? According to Mexico
City Mayor Marcelo Ebrard,
sexuality is essential to hap_
piness and quality of life.
Call us immature and in_
sensitive, but we don't really
see the necessity of this.
Unless cinema is lying to
us, which we could never
believe, increasing the prob-
ability of elderly copulation
simultaneously puts these
reinvigorated older men at
risk for heart attacks.
.We would be lying if we
said we weren't frightened
by the thought of an elderly,
Viagra free-for-all, but we're
honestly concerned about
more than the possibility of
hideous visions being seared
into the minds of unsuspect-
ing, roaming grandchildren.
We can only hope the old
men of Mexico City will take
a second to consider their
tickers before they slip up
like Jack.


t's your typical Monday morning: You grudgingly fight
and slump into the first seat you can find in the back
of Carleton Auditorium. Your professor walks in and som-
berly approaches the lectern.
In the next ten minutes, you suddenly snap out of your
hangover-induced daze as she informs you that you have
one year to complete your degree because budget cuts
have forced UF to cut the program,
This is rapidly becoming reality for thousands of UF
students and faculty because of the budget cuts forced
upon UF by the state Legislature. Putting minute details
aside, UF is faced with budget cuts for the academic year,
and more are expected as the economy continues to de-
cline.
The quality of a UF degree and education suffers as
programs get cut on every level from undergraduate to
doctorate. Faculty members are fired on every level, and
each year UF will admit 1,000 fewer students.
The State University System, which is-comprised of
Florida's 11 public universities, must find a way to increase
revenues. The solution isn't pleasant, let alone politically
palatable.
The best plan of action would be to hike tuition at
Florida public universities while simultaneously decreas-
ing Bright Futures eligibility. This plan may not be popular
with students, but it is the only realistic solution to the
threat facing our TUF degr-ees.
Phasing out Bright Futures would be politically unfea-
sible in the current economic climate, but this outcome
iS inevitable, according to the Chair of the State Senate
Committee on Education.
Aside from being the only possible course of action,


it actually won't prevent many
students from attending a Florida
public uruversity.
According to state figures,
the average family income of
a student at UF is $100,000 a
KHyle Robisch year. When coupled with the
letters@alligator.0rg fact that Floridians pay less for
their education than residents of
most other states about $3,300,
compared with the national average of $6,100 a tuition
increase and tougher eligibility requirements for Bright
Futures are both morally and fiscally acceptable.
Students who need help paying for school can get it
from need-based scholarships and Bright Futures, which
would still pay up to $3,300 a year. Although this isn't a
full ride, which Bright Futures currently provides for some
students, it would cover more than half of tuition costs and
force high school students to work harder to boost their
grades.
Increasing tuition by just $2,000 a year would generate
'more than $70 million for UF, which easily covers the $47
million in budget cuts we are saddled with. This increase
would keep education costs well below the national aver-
age, maintaining the State of Florida's famous affordabil-
ity.
In the current economic meltdown, it is selfish and im-
practical, to allow the quality of a UF degree to deteriorate
as funding melts away.
UF must raise tuition and the state must make Bright
Futures more competitive. Your future could depend on it.

the Florida Law Review.
The group will talk about cur-
rent legal issues. Rush, Wolf and
Dougherty will ask questions submit-
ted by UF Iaw students.
The event is the first of the
Marshall Criser Distinguished Lecture
Series, which was created thanks
to a $600,000 donation in January
2007 from UF law school alumnus
Lewis Schott, said Chris Brazda, UF
Foundation spokesman.
The donation was matched by
$420,000 in state funds through
Florida's University Major Gifts
Program.
Robert Jerry, dean of UF's law
school, said Stevens and Gonzalez
declined to be paid for their appear-
ances.
They were compensated for travel
costs, Jerry said.
He said he was pleased students
would have a second opportunity this
semester to see a U.S. Supreme Court
justice at UE
But UF doesn't intend to stop
bringing the big names any tune soon,
he added.
"There are not many law schools,
if any, that have had this frequency of
Supreme Court visitors," Jerry said.

A former deputy plans to ap-
peal a decision by the Alachua
County Sheriff's Office to fire him
for reportedly lying about a minor
traffic accident.
An Internal Affairs investiga-
tion revealed that Deputy Carl
Klock, 36, could not provide any


details about a vehicle that he said
rear-ended his patrol car July 8 on
West University Avenue.
Three cars in front of Klock
were also involved in the accident,
said sheriff's office spokesman
Steve Maynard.
Investigators determined that


Klock had been the cause of the
accident and rec-
ommended that he
o ews be fired for lying,
Maynard said.
Sheriff Sadie
Darnell agreed with the recom-
mendation and fixed Klock


Wednesday, Maynard said.
The current punishment for
a preventable crash in which the
deputy is at fault is a reprimand
and loss of patrol car take-home
privilege for one night, Maynard
sad.
There is no monetary fine for


the first at-fault crash, he said.
"A small lie about the accident
ruined his career and his job,"
Maynard said. "His incentive to
not be truthful about the accident
had no sense in it."

The Web site launched in opposition to legislation passed
in Florida, Arizona, Arkansas and California in the Nov.
4 election, including Proposition 8, which overturned a
California ruling allowing same-sex marriages.
Over the next 10 months, Join The Impact founders hope
to launch at least 10 more nationwide demonstrations, ac-
cording to the site.
Gainesville residents Daniel and M.J. Roberts coordinated
the local event using the Web site and Facebook.
M.J. Roberts, 39, said she relied mainly on word of mouth
to advertise the protest. It worked.
At 1:30 p.m., when the protest was scheduled to begin,
about 30 people stood alorig the curb of University Avenue.
About 45 minutes later, more than 100 people were lining
both sides of the road.
Despite wet weather, protesters stayed until 3 p.m., way-
ing posters that read, "Shame On 2," "Can I Vote On Your
Marriage Now?" and "2 is Poo."
Protester Stacie Greco, 31, wore a wedding veil while ral-
lying with her partner, Christine Smith, 35.
Not all attendees were homosexual.
'5 think it's a civil rights issue," said Alicia Hamilton, 52. "I
don't have to be gay to support it."
Hamilton's sign read, "Straight but I don't hate."
"I'm ashamed to admit it now, but many many many
years ago I voted against some of these rights when I was liv-
ing in Miami," Hamilton said. "Now it's 20-something years
later and my mind has been opened."
For others, the protest was personal.
The Rev. Virginia MlcDaniel, a minister for 15 years, said
her lesbian daughter married in California before the state
voted to pass Proposition 8.
Now, she worries that her daughter's marriage status will
be overturned.
"I think discrimination against people who happen to love
people of the same sex is terrible," McDaniel said.
Student protesters from UF also braved the weather to
show support. UF botany major Zoe Falcone protested with
her girlfriend and a shivering Chihuahua named Widget.
Falcone, who is transgender, said she thinks it's unfair that
people are able to decide on her rights.
"Even though we did elect a black president, gays got hit
pretty bad this year," Falcone said.

FAKE CEREMONY WAS HELD AT
THE BAUGHMAN CENTER ON FRIDAY.

SBy LAUREN BAKER

Ibaker@alligator.org

After a marriage proposal via Facebook five
days beforehand, two UF sophomores were
married (just for fun) Friday in a ceremony on
campus.
The hasty wedding came as no surprise
to some of the near 25 guests who attended,
mainly because itwas fraud.
The couple, members of aUF improve group,
Theatre Strike Force, planned the ceremony on
a whim following a playful suggestion by the
bride, Kamay Lafalaise.
After asking Rudy Mendoza to marry
her by leaving a post on his Facebook wall,
Mendoza responded by painting "Marry me,
Kamay!" on the 34th Street wall.
alR y took it to Mars and went for it,"
Mendoza said they planned the event for
Friday afternoon in the Baughman Center,
which offers free public access throughout
the day.
He said the wedding cost about $20, which
went towant the painted proposal.
The minister and pianist performed their
services for free, Mendoza said.

A weeklong search for aGainesville
man ended in tragedy in the parking
lot of the Jacksonville International
Airport Friday morning.
Detectives found David Reiser, 6,
in his van minutes before he reportedly
shot himself in the head.
The Alachua County Sheriff's
Office, or ASO, issued a silver alert for
Reiser on Nov. 8 after friends from his
band reported him missing, said ASO
spokesman Steve Maynard.
The silver alert program, which was
signed by Gov. Charlie Crist in October,
broadcasts information to find missing
elderly people who may be in danger.

the tunnel hyped, and they stay
hyped. The Gators have outscored
their last six opponents all SEC
teams 101-0 in the first quarter.
"In the locker room before the
game, we get so much balled-up
energy," sophomore cornerback
Joe Haden said. "It doesn't matter
who we play. We've got a plan."
Percy Harvin must've been a
big part of that plan. The junior
do-it-all speedster finished with
173 total yards, 167 of which were
rushing, and two touchdowns.
Junior middle linebacker
Brandon Spikes said "you can't"
cover Harvin, and sophomore
strong safety Ahmad Black said it


is "impossible" to cover him.
In what was a near video
game-like play, Harvin took the
ball twice on the same counter run
and had two touchdowns of 26
g and 80 yards. He
i ,-~stouched the ball
just nine times.
"If he was
a tailback on
somebody else's
team, he'd be
Spurriera 200-yards-
a-game guy,"
Spurrier said.
The scary part for opponents is
that it's not just Harvin.
The Gators finished with 367


yards on the ground and had six
different receivers catch passes.
The last time they rushed for 300
yards against an SEC Team was
Oct. 12, 1996, against LSU.
"Our numbers have been outra-
geous," Harvin said.
That's true on offense and
defense. The Gators picked off
Gamecocks quarterbacks three
times and held them to just 173
yards of offense. It was South
Carolina's worst loss since it fell to
UF 63-7 in 1995 with, you guessed
it, Spurrier as the coach.
Since their 31-30 loss against
Mississippi on Sept. 27, the Gators
haven't won by fewer than 28.


"I probably didn't envision
winning by this much," said
quarterback Tim Tebow, who had
three total touchdowns. "But the
effort and enthusiasm, absolutely
(I expected)."
The Gators are potentially four
games away from their second-
national championship in three
years.
"That was the best defense
I have ever played against,"
South Carolina quarterback Chris
Smelley said.
That's not something Gators
fans have heard in a long time. It's
not something Alabama wants to
hear, either.

on the other hand, this was just
another blowout in what's become
a common theme as Atlanta and
a matchup with Alabama creeps
closer.
While the Crimson Tide remains
undefeated at 11-0, they haven't
been blowing out opponents the
way the Gators have. Mississippi
State kept it close with Alabama
for most of the game until the
Crimson Tide came out with a 32-
7 win. The week before, Alabama
only took down LSU by 6, 27-21.

Hicks leads defense to two interceptions in blowout

UF linebacker Brandon Hicks had one start this season com- . it
ing into Saturday's game against South Carolina. --
He made his second one count. ~d
Beginning the game at weakside linebacker in place of A~.J
Jones (sprained PCL in his kn~ee), Hicks was key on UF's two
first-quarter interceptions and a catalyst for the No. 3 Gators'
56-6 win over No. 24 South Carolina. P-1I B11I.~ -~~l lli;~p~f '"'Bfi&F~l~ B ~ "'
For starters, Hicks applied pressure to South Carolina ii
quarterback Chris Smelley and forced him to float a pass that p); B .

"He was trying to throw it off his back foot, trying to run 1 p~~L.
away from the rush," Hicks said. "I was just hoping in my .$I
head, I was like 'I know somebody's there."'"1
Two South Carolina plays later, Hicks leaped up at the line, I

And that's not all. He sacked Smelley for a loss of 7 yards /~

Hicks said it was the best day in his career.
UF coach Urban Meyer recognizes the depth of his defense,

With time winding down, the Gators made
one final attempt to take a lead into the half.
Lindsay Thompson received the ball from
Angela Napolitano with under 10 seconds
left. She calmly turned and fired the ball past
Central Florida goalie Aline Reis with only four
seconds to go, scoring the latest goal in a half in

When the Gators took the field in the sec-

They continued to put pressure on the Golden
Knights en route to a 2-0 win to advance to the
Round of 16 in the NCAA Tournament and re-

Despite dominating most of the match
against ICF on Aug. 29 the Gators outshot


the Knights 17 to 6 and 8 to 2 in shots on goal

Gators overcome lack of experience, inside play


'"e~


Collins and forward Sam Singh
on the glass.
UF tried to relieve Tyus with
freshmen Allan Chaney and
Kenny Kadji, but neither seemed
to find a rhythm.
"I got blown by a few times,"
Chaney said. "Coach got on me
about that."

"We would have liked
to do more inside and
around the basket."
Blily Donovan
UF men's basketball coach


Donovan said a lack of condi-
tioning has limited the minutes
the tandem has been able to
play. The pair only grabbed five
rebounds.
"Both of those guys fatigue a
little faster than I would like,"
Donovan said.
Without a strong inside game,
the Gators were forced to, once
again, live or die by their outside
shooting.
For now, that strategy worked.
UF took 32 3-point attempts in
the game and knocked down 14
of them.
"We won the game today
because of the 3-point line,"
Donovan said.
The Gators' last seven field
goals came from behind the are.
It was the most threes allowect
by Bradley since they gave up as


UF Iooks to rebound after loss


many to Wichita State on March
3, 2003.
Ironically, the Braves have
been one of the nation's best 3-
point shooting teams over the
last two years, making 695 in
that span. On~~ly Virginia Military
Institute and Houston have made
more.
Walter Hodge (5) and Dan
Werner (4) tied their career highs
from 3-point land.
After missing 94 of his 136
shots from 3-point range last
year, Werner seems to have found
his stride.
"I was building (brick) houses
last year," he joked.
Bradley started the second
half on a 10-1 run that cut UF's
lead to 43-35. It looked as though
the Braves might have shot
their way back into the game
until point guard Erving Walker
started the barrage of threes that
would eventually put an. end to
the Bradley rally with a, little
more than 10 minutes left in the
game.
Chandler Parsons has gotten
off to a slow start offensively
this season. The sophomore has
scored 12 points through the
Gators' first two games.
"His shot obviously isn't
falling, but his rebounding is a
lot more important than that,"
Calathes said.
Parsons snatched a career-high
10 rebounds against the Braves.

It was a baptism by fire, and
the Gators nearly got burned.
Often outmuscled and almost
outmatched, No. 19 UF (2-0)
scrapped its way to- an 81-58 win
against Bradley (1-1) on Sunday
at the O'Connell Center during
the second round of the O'Reilly
Auto Parts CBE Classic.
The veteran team out of the
Missouri Valley Conference came
to Gainesville unafraid.
The Braves, who started four
upperclassmen, pushed around
the less-experienced Gators for
most of the afternoon in a game
that played out much closer than
the final score indicates.
"We're going to see (older
teams) during the season," UF
guard Nick Calathes said. "That's
the SEC Tournament and, if we
make the NCAA Tournament,
that's the NCAA Tournament,
too. So, we better get used to it."
Seven-foot Bradley center
David Collins had his way with
Alex Tyus in the first half until
foul trouble forced Collins to the
bench.

rebounds, struggled to fight off

UF forward Dan Werner looks for a way around a defender during the
first half of the Gators' 80-58 win against Toledo on Friday night.


The Gators will have to try and rebound from
their first loss tonight at 7 mn the O'Connell Center
when they host Jacksonville, and if last year is any
indication, it won't be easy. The Dolphins defeated
UF last season in Jacksonville, 75-64.
"Another excellent team. Our state, I think, is very
talented this year," Butler said.
"We went to Jacksonville and lost
last year.
"We've got to bounce back
and get ourselves ready to de-
fend our home court."
There were a few bright spots
for UF on Friday
Jennifer Mossor scored a ca-
ourtler reer-high 22 points in the loss.
"It was great to see her feeling it, especially hit-
ting a few big threes for us and making plays down
the stretch in the second half that gave us a chance to
win," Butler said.
Marshae Dotson ~had 22 points, and Sharielle
Smith fell just short of adouble-double with16 points
and nine rebounds.
It was somewhat of a homecoming for junior
guard Steffi Sozensen, who began her career at
Florida Golf Coast. She added 9 points and fouled
out in her first regular season game as a Gator.
Despite some good offensive performances, Butler
knows her team will have to tighten up defensively
"In crucial moments we had some breakdowns,"
Butler said. "And when you're playing against a
good team on their home court, you lose."

The UF women's basketball team's season opener
on Friday night didn't go as well as the team had
hoped, thanks to a feisty underdog.
The Gators' road trip to Florida Gulf Coast proved
to be no snoozer, and the Eagles escaped with an 88-
86 victory, avenging their two defeats to UF last year.
'Tt's very obvious how prepared they were, how
emotionally up they were for this game," UF coach
Amanda Butler said. "We knew we were going to be
tested, a lot of adverse conditions."
UF stormed back after being down 13 with about
11 minutes left in the second half to take a 76-74 lead
with about six minutes remaining.
The two teams went back and forth from there
with six lead changes.
Florida Gulf Coast regained the lead 85-84 with
about 35 seconds to go and held on for the win.
The Gators missed two key layups in the final
minute and a lialf that would have put them on top.
"We got the looks that we wanted there those last
few possessions. We just didn't put them in the hole,"
Butler said. "You can't choke it down when you've
got that opportunity to put the ball into the hole."
Butler was disappointed with her team's defense
throughout the game. The Gators allowed the Eagles
to shoot 50 percent from the field and 57 percent from
behind the are, a recipe for disaster.
"We obviously still have a lot of work to do,"
Butler said.

that UF guard Nick Calathes

The NCAA does not prohib-

performance for the UF defense be-
cause it ouishined the South Carolina
defense that Meyer spent the entire
FOOtball week praising. Meyer's defense
wound up scoring as many points (6)

felt like we had to show ... America we're the best

By BRIAN STEELE Alligator Staff Writer bsteele@aligator.org This is getting ridiculous. UF made opposing players look like they had just gotten out of bed and barely combed their hair -again Percy Harvin made scoring touchdowns look easier than cooking Ramen -again. The Gators read the opponent's quarterback like a nursery rhyme and added to their interception total -again. Perhaps what's even more ridiculous than anything is, as South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier put it, the Gators are a four-game winning streak away from their second national championship in three years. Of course, that's assuming the Gators make it past Florida State in two weeks and then a matchup with No. 1 Alabama in the Southeastern Conference Championship Game. If no other major upsets occur, then UF, No. 4 in the BCS, would probably play Texas Tech, Texas or Oklahoma in the championship game. The run this UF football team is on is one that the 1996 Gators titlewinning team would give a standing ovation. That '96 team scored an absurd 376 points in conference play. This year's team scored 359. And that's with the majority of their second-string offense playing in the second half of many of those games. In the stadium that Spurrier made famous, the biggest loss he had previously suffered -as a player or coach -was a 12-point defeat when he was manning the sidelines in 1993 against FSU. That's until he and his nowdirt-covered visors came into Gainesville showcasing an offense with a colorblindness problem that made it unable to distinguish blue jerseys from white ones. "We got royally beat," Spurrier said. Beat. Throttled. Embarrassed. Pummeled. However you want to put it, Saturday was a bad day for South Carolina.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2008 N ALLIGATOR, 3 ON CAMPUS Fraternities, sororities battle for step title E REIGNING STEP CHAMPIONS TOOK HOME TROPHIES. By CHELSEA KEENAN Alligator Contributing Writer Incarnations of spacewomen, prisoners, Oompa-Loompas and Sean "Diddy" Combs pounded the stage of the Phillips Center for Performing Arts on Saturday night. Four UF fraternities and four sororities from the National Panhellenic Council portrayed the characters as part of the annual Battle of the Greeks Step Show. About 1,400 students piled into the center to watch the competition, sponsored by the nine-member greek council. Although the Battle of the Greeks has only existed for four years, its predecessor, the Black Greek Expedition, has been around since the late 1990s, said John Foster, a member of the show's publicity committee. Some of the themes included swashbuckling pirates, space expeditions, a spoof of MTV's "Making the Band" and a futuristic voyage. Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity started off the night on the right foot -literally -when they performed their routine blindfolded and standing on one leg. The uniqueness of the routine earned extra points with the nine judges. Some of the performers took advantage of special effects, such as fog and black lights, for their performances. Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, whose show was based on a journey to Mars, used strobe lights to simulate a feeling of low gravity. Groups also made short video clips to help narrate their storylines. Acrobatics and stunts were also used in routines. The pirates of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority made a human compass while spinning and lifting a girl, who posed as the needle. Performers wove elements such as jump ropes and swords into some of the performances. Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity and Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority used canes in their routines, with one dancer banging her cane so hard against the stage that it broke into three pieces. Once the organizations finished competing, UF's Apocalypse Dance Troupe performed and R&B artist Bobby Valentino put on a concert. Audience members sang and danced along while waiting for the judges' results. Once the scores were tallied, the Philips Center became quiet as the audience awaited the news. Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority -last year's reigning champions -took home a trophy and another year's worth of bragging rights. Foster said he was pleased with the execution of this year's show. "It was quite possibly the best one yet," he said. MONDAY NIGHTS. $3Surgers $5 Pitchers 1702 W.

4, ALLIGATOR E MONDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2008 UF PROJECTS $14M stadium for women's lacrosse to open July 2009 By KRISTY POMES Alligator Contributing Writer UF is constructing a lacrosse stadium for the new women's lacrosse team that should be finished by July 2009. The stadium, which cost almost $14 million, is on Hull Road across from the Katie Seashole Pressly Softball Stadium. The lacrosse stadium is solely funded by UF's University Athletic Association, or UAA, and will consist of about 1,400 seats and concession stands. Bahar Armaghani, project manager for the stadium, said construction is running on time. The stadium will also serve as a practice field for the UF soccer team. A contract between the UAA and UF. states that the land the soccer team uses for a practice field is needed for an intramural sports field, Associate Athletic Director Chip Howard said. He added that the soccer team would continue to play in their stadium because it holds more people. Soccer games average about 4,000 people a game. The stadium will be equipped with locker rooms, concessions, additional parking and a sidewalk. When construction is done, Hull Road will have a sidewalk on both sides of the street. "To add a women's sport was a fundamental choice to add a great program and to give women a better chance to play." Chip Howard associate athletic director The construction will adhere to UF's environmentally friendly efforts. Trees that were originally in the area are being replanted or replaced by new trees elsewhere. The land previously belonged to the Institute for Food and Agricultural Science. While construction continues, the UAA has signed three coaches and 24 players for the team. The coaches are head coach Amanda O'Leary and assistant coaches Jennifer Ulehla and Erica LaGrow. LaGrow was recently invited to be part of the U.S. Lacrosse World Cup Training Team. When the stadium is complete, the UF lacrosse team will begin practice in June 2009 and compete in Division I of the NCAA in spring 2010. "To add a women's sport was a fundamental choice to add a great program and to give women a better chance to play," Howard said. UF becomes first campus to honor World Diabetes Day N EVENT FEATURED LIGHTS, SPEAKERS, BUBBLES. By CURTIS DEVINE Alligator Contributing Writer Beneath bubbles and blue light, Gainesville Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan and others spoke at UF's Century Tower for World Diabetes Day, an event raising diabetes awareness and hope for a cure. The ceremony drew more than 200 Friday night and made UF the first campus to commemorate the day. "Together as a community we can do so much to reduce incidents of diabetes," Hanrahan said. "I have hope for the future." She said there have been national and local increases of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. However, she added that because awareness is spreading through events such as World Diabetes Day, those numbers could drop.

The event featured speakers such as Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan. and said 23 million Americans have diabetes and 53 million are predisposed to develop it. Schatz said awareness is critical because if more people understand diabetes, support for research and accessible health care will grow. "Not only do we need money," he said. "We need you." Rep. Charles Chestnut described diabetes as a silent killer. As a diabetic, he said he has had to change his entire lifestyle to stay healthy. At the end of the ceremony, attendants formed a circle and blew bubbles around Century Tower, which was illuminated by blue spotlights. Kathryn Parker, education coordinator for the Diabetes Center of Excellence, said the bubbles symbolized hope for the 236 million people living with diabetes worldwide. Parker said blue lights also lit fountains near Tigert Hall, University Gallery and the Cultural Plaza, all in an effort to raise awareness. m ~~~~~~~~~~ I317n,1 Vpis 11IY UM MBA BUSINESS SENIORS: YOUR TIME IS NOW ONE-YEAR MBA If you're about to graduate with a business degree, now is the perfect time to set yourself apart with an MBA from the prestigious University of Miami School of Business Administration.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 5 AROUND GAINESVILLE Homeless Services Fair gives necessities to needy By LAUREN IRIZARRY Alligator Contributing Writer Although Tony James of Gainesville has been out on the streets for about a week, he said it lifts his spirit to know that others are trying to help. James was one of about 300 people who gathered at the Bo Diddley Community Plaza downtown Friday for the 10th annual Homeless Services Fair. About two dozen organizations offered free services including haircuts, bike repairs, identification card services and even five-minute chair massages. Donated blankets and clothes were stacked on tables that lined the plaza stage. Fire of God Ministries and the Alachua County Coalition for the Homeless and Hungry partnered to serve a hot meal to all attendees. "The main thing about any organization here is to help the people, the citizens of Alachua County." Marie Small Choices health services employee After getting his hair cut, James pulled off his baseball cap to reveal his bare scalp. "I didn't have a lot of hair to cut off anyway," he said with a laugh. Others at the plaza sat around picnic tables sharing meals or sprawled on the grass, picking at banjos and playing harmonicas. "The main thing about any organization here is to help the people, the citizens of Alachua County," said Marie Small of Choices, a health services provider for the uninsured. One volunteer, Tony Morales, of Tampa, repaired bicycles for anyone who brought one over. Morales said it wasn't long ago that he was homeless too. "I've been on the other side needing to get my bike fixed," he said. Another man, Danny Gryggs, said he rides his bike 23 miles from Hawthorne to volunteer every week with Arupa's Home Van, an organization that provides food for people downtown. "You do not go hungry in this town," Gryggs said. Norris Martin balanced a plate full of goulash, salad and a prepackaged cherry pie as he sat down on a bench at the plaza. "I ain't complaining," Martin said, as he covered his goulash in ranch dressing. Along with the food provided Friday, many were able to pick up Regional Transit System bus vouchers or find information about affordable housing and health care. The Department of Motor Vehicles' mobile unit provided identification cards, which are often necessary to sign up for services, said Barbara Satterthwaite, DMV examiner specialist. "You have to have an ID to get your foot in the door for anything," Satterthwaite said. James said that's all most people want -an opportunity. But it's not easy to come by. "A lot of us just can't get that one break," he said. "People need to take off their judgment and realize we're all in this together."

The event will also feature three speakers who have experienced homelessness, Tapia said. The events end Friday at 6 p.m. in the Graham Gallery with performances from student organizations and information about hunger and the homeless. A canned food drive will run throughout the week in the dorms and at sorority and fraternity houses, Bartra said. "Gainesville has one of the biggest homeless populations," Tapia said. "It's important to show that we don't just go to school here. We actually care and want to do something about it." Both Tapia and Bartra said that students help alleviate the state of hunger and homelessness not only during the week of events, but also by joining or volunteering with other service organizations throughout the year.

6, ALLIGATOR E MONDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2008 Editorial Dinnertime Symbolic event lacks significant impact By now, we think it's safe to assume Gainesville touts a fairly left-wing point of view. The area's liberal tendency is especially obvious on UF's campus, where protests are as common as man-crushes on Percy Harvin. You can rarely make it through Turlington without some random activist group informing you of their humanitarian cause of the week. That's exactly why we're not surprised UF student organizations are not afraid to push the importance of sharing the wealth. In keeping with this UF tradition, today marks the beginning of Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week. In addition to a weeklong canned food drive, the week of awareness will also be hosting the Oxfam Hunger Banquet. The banquet is structured to emphasize class disparity in the U.S., especially the hardships endured by the less fortunate. Students at the banquet will be divided into three groups to represent society's poor, middle class and elite. Each group will be fed and treated differently for the duration of the meal. We're pretty sure this might have made some sense on paper, but when we try to visualize how this would actually play out, we're a bit more skeptical. How effective could one night of reduced dinner portions and insincere, faked insults be? After all, everyone in attendance still gets to eat, which we can safely assume isn't the case for those actually living day to day on the streets. We highly doubt that anyone not already concerned with the plight of the homeless would revamp their entire outlook because they were given a half-serving of beans rather than a filet mignon. Pursuit of Hap-penis If you've ever seen the 2003 film "Something's Gotta Give" featuring aging stars Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton, then you know firsthand the horrors and possible pitfalls of overthe-hill intimacy. In one of the movie's opening scenes, Nicholson's character has a heart attack as he is putting the moves on a disturbingly younger woman. You should stay away from this film simply for comfort's sake if you have a weak stomach, but if you want to avoid the nightmare-inducing experience of viewing a wrinkled sexcapade in person, then you'll want to stay far away from Mexico City. On -Dec. 1, the capital city will be providing free Viagra, Levitra and Cialis to male residents 70 and older. The reasoning behind this? According to Mexico City Mayor Marcelo Ebrard, sexuality is essential to happiness and quality of life. Call us immature and insensitive, but we don't really see the necessity of this. Unless cinema is lying to us, which we could never believe, increasing the probability of elderly copulation simultaneously puts these reinvigorated older men at risk for heart attacks. We would be lying if we said we weren't frightened by the thought of an elderly, Viagra free-for-all, but we're honestly concerned about more than the possibility of hideous visions being seared into the minds of unsuspecting, roaming grandchildren. We can only hope the old men of Mexico City will take a second to consider their tickers before they slip up like Jack. 0 i-e 1 epe-dent fn-ida alligator Jessica DaSilva Adam Wynn EDITOR OPINIONS EDITOR Hilary Lehman, Ken Schwencke MANAGING EDITORS The Alligator encourages comments from readers.

Your professor walks in and somberly approaches the lectern. In the next ten minutes, you suddenly snap out of your hangover-induced daze as she informs you that you have one year to complete your degree because budget cuts have forced UF to cut the program. This is rapidly becoming reality for thousands of UF students and faculty because of the budget cuts forced upon UF by the state Legislature. Putting minute details aside, UF is faced with budget cuts for the academic year, and more are expected as the economy continues to decline. The quality of a UF degree and education suffers as programs get cut on every level from undergraduate to doctorate. Faculty members are fired on every level, and each year UF will admit 1,000 fewer students. The State University System, which is comprised of Florida's 11 public universities, must find a way to increase revenues. The solution isn't pleasant, let alone politically palatable. The best plan of action would be to hike tuition at Florida public universities while simultaneously decreasing Bright Futures eligibility. This plan may not be popular with students, but it is the only realistic solution to the threat facing our UF degrees. Phasing out Bright Futures would be politically unfeasible in the current economic climate, but this outcome is inevitable, according to the Chair of the State Senate Committee on Education. Aside from being the only possible course of action, it actually won't prevent many students from attending a Florida public university. According to state figures, the average family income of a student at UF is $100,000 a Kyle Robisch year. When coupled with the letters@amIigator.org fact that Floridians pay less for their education than residents of most other states -about $3,300, compared with the national average of $6,100 -a tuition increase and tougher eligibility requirements for Bright Futures are both morally and fiscally acceptable. Students who need help paying for school can get it from need-based scholarships and Bright Futures, which would still pay up to $3,300 a year. Although this isn't a full ride, which Bright Futures currently provides for some students, it would cover more than half of tuition costs and force high school students to work harder to boost their grades. Increasing tuition by just $2,000 a year would generate 'more than $70 million for UF, which easily covers the $47 million in budget cuts we are saddled with. This increase would keep education costs well below the national average, maintaining the State of Florida's famous affordability. In the current economic meltdown, it is selfish and impractical to allow the quality of a UF degree to deteriorate as funding melts away. UF must raise tuition and the state must make Bright Futures more competitive. Your future could depend on it. Kyle Robisch is a political science and economics sophomore.

You can't have it both ways. Second, I trust that your deep concern for justice and human rights extends to the thousands of unborn children who are deprived of all their rights -including the most basic right to life -every day in this country through abortion.

What fits this program about the student I ran into last year who thanked us for saving his life because he needed medical assistance?

8, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, NOVEMBER 17,2008 Former deputy to appeal firing from sheriff's office A former deputy plans to appeal a decision by the Alachua County Sheriff's Office to fire him for reportedly lying about a minor traffic accident. An Internal Affairs investigation revealed that Deputy Carl Klock, 36, could not provide any details about a vehicle that he said rear-ended his patrol car July 8 on West University Avenue. Three cars in front of Klock were also involved in the accident, said sheriff's office spokesman Steve Maynard. Investigators determined that Klock had been the cause of the accident and recommended that he Local be fired for lying, News Maynard said. Sheriff Sadie Darnell agreed with the recommendation and fired Klock Wednesday, Maynard said. The current punishment for a preventable crash in which the deputy is at fault is a reprimand and loss of patrol car take-home privilege for one night, Maynard sad. There is no monetary fine for the first at-fault crash, he said. "A small lle about the accident ruined his career and his job," Maynard said. "His incentive to not be truthful about the accident had no sense in it." -KATIE EMMETS Gainesville event part of nationwide day of protest PROTEST, frompage 1 Students to submit questions JUSTICE, from page 1 the Florida Law Review. The group will talk about current legal issues. Rush, Wolf and Dougherty will ask questions submitted by UF law students. The event is the first of the Marshall Criser Distinguished Lecture Series, which was created thanks to a $600,000 donation in January 2007 from UF law school alumnus Lewis Schott, said Chris Brazda, UF Foundation spokesman. The donation was matched by $420,000 in state funds through Florida's University Major Gifts Program. Robert Jerry, dean of UF's law school, said Stevens and Gonzalez declined to be paid for their appearances. They were compensated for travel costs, Jerry said. He said he was pleased students would have a second opportunity this semester to see a U.S. Supreme Court justice at UP. But UF doesn't intend to stop bringing the big names any time soon, he added. "There are not many law schools, if any, that have had this frequency of Supreme Court visitors," Jerry said. Jointhempact.com. The Web site launched in opposition to legislation passed in Florida, Arizona, Arkansas and California in the Nov. 4 election, including Proposition 8, which overturned a California ruling allowing same-sex marriages. Over the next 10 months, Join The Impact founders hope to launch at least 10 more nationwide demonstrations, according to the site. Gainesville residents Daniel and M.J. Roberts coordinated the local event using the Web site and Facebook. M.J. Roberts, 39, said she relied mainly on word of mouth to advertise the protest. It worked. At 1:30 p.m., when the protest was scheduled to begin, about 30 people stood along the curb of University Avenue. About 45 minutes later, more than 100 people were lining both sides of the road. Despite wet weather, protesters stayed until 3 p.m., waving posters that read, "Shame On 2," "Can I Vote On Your Marriage Now?" and "2 is Poo." Protester Stacie Greco, 31, wore a wedding veil while rallying with her partner, Christine Smith, 35. Not all attendees were homosexual. "I think it's a civil rights issue," said Alicia Hamilton, 52. "I don't have to be gay to support it." Hamilton's sign read, "Straight but I don't hate." "I'm ashamed to admit it now, but many many many years ago I voted against some of these rights when I was living in Miami," Hamilton said. "Now it's 20-something years later and my mind has been opened." For others, the protest was personal. The Rev. Virginia McDaniel, a minister for 15 years, said her lesbian daughter married in California before the state voted to pass Proposition 8. Now, she worries that her daughter's marriage status will be overturned. "I think discrimination against people who happen to love people of the same sex is terrible," McDaniel said. Student protesters from UF also braved the weather to show support. UF botany major Zoe Falcone protested with her girlfriend and a shivering Chihuahua named Widget. Falcone, who is transgender, said she thinks it's unfair that people are able to decide on her rights. "Even though we did elect a black president, gays got hit pretty bad this year," Falcone said.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2008 0 ALLIGATOR, 9 Missing man kills himself in parking lot By KATIE EMMETS Alligator Writer A weeklong search for a Gainesville man ended in tragedy in the parking lot of the Jacksonville International Airport Friday morning. Detectives found David Reiser, 66, in his van minutes before he reportedly shot himself in the head. The Alachua County Sheriff's Office, or ASO, issued a silver alert for Reiser on Nov. 8 after friends from his band reported him missing, said ASO spokesman Steve Maynard. The silver alert program, which was signed by Gov. Charlie Crist in October, broadcasts information to find missing elderly people who may be in danger. Maynard said an alert for Reiser was displayed on Department of Transportation message boards statewide for the week he was missing. Detectives tracked Reiser's cell phone to the Jacksonville area, where they found what appeared to be his unoccupied van in a parking lot at the airport Thursday, Maynard said. ASO detective Sheryl Strickland, along with officers from the airport and the Florida Attorney General's Office, approached the van at about 10 a.m. and saw a sleeping man who appeared to be Reiser through the tinted windows. Strickland knocked on the window and woke him up, and Reiser spoke to her through the window but appeared confused and disoriState ented, Maynard said. News He then reached over in the van and pointed a handgun at Strickland, Maynard said. "She yelled, 'Gun! Gun!' and everyone took cover behind the cars," Maynard said. Officials heard a single gunshot. Because they were unsure of the target, they waited until Jacksonville Sheriff's Office officials arrived with a bulletproof shield to approach the van. They found Reiser dead from a self-inflicted bullet wound to the head, Maynard said. Maynard said Reiser had a history of blacking out for days at a time and not knowing who he was. ON CAMPUS Students hold fake wedding N FAKE CEREMONY WAS HELD AT THE BAUGHMAN CENTER ON FRIDAY. By LAUREN BAKER Alligator Writer lbaker@alligator.org After a marriage proposal via Facebook five days beforehand, two UF sophomores were married (just for fun) Friday in a ceremony on campus. The hasty wedding came as no surprise to some of the near 25 guests who attended, mainly because it was a fraud. The couple, members of a UFimprov group, Theatre Strike Force, planned the ceremony on a whim following a playful suggestion by the bride, Kamay Lafalaise. After asking Rudy Mendoza to marry her by leaving a post on his Facebook wall, Mendoza responded by painting "Marry me, Kamay!" on the 34th Street wall. "Rudy took it to Mars and went for it," Lafalaise said. Mendoza said they planned the event for Friday afternoon in the Baughman Center, which offers free public access throughout the day. He said the wedding cost about $20, which went toward the painted proposal. The minister and pianist performed their services for free, Mendoza said. As notes of Johann Pachelbel's "Canon in D Major" drifted over the guests, some attendees in dressy attire were confused. Others jumped on board without question. Barry Naylor, a former UF student and TSF member, drove up from Tampa. As the "Bridal Chorus" sounded, Lafalaise, wearing her roommate's white knee-length dress, took measured steps toward the altar. There were only a few hiccups, some planned, some improvised: a tardy minister, a forgotten ring, a few objections and two phone calls during the ceremony. "There's no better practice for performing a wedding than at a fake wedding." Warren Moore UF computer engineering senior and minister As the wedding party gathered outside for pictures following the ceremony, UF sophomore Lauren Levy stopped to watch them on a nearby bridge. Upon discovering the wedding was a sham, Levy laughed. "I was telling her congratulations," she said. The elaborate gag was officiated by an ordained minister. Warren Moore, a UF computer engineering senior, said he tutors Mendoza for a class, and becoming his minister was a natural transition. Moore has been ordained for a few years, but he has never officiated a ceremony before. "There's no better practice for performing a wedding than at a fake wedding," he said.

10, ALLIGATOR E MONDAY, NOVEMBER 17,2008 Harvin, Gators dominate ground game with 367 rushing yards FOOTBALL, from page 1 on the other hand, this was just another blowout in what's become a common theme as Atlanta and a matchup with Alabama creeps closer. While the Crimson Tide remains undefeated at 11-0, they haven't been blowing out opponents the way the Gators have. Mississippi State kept it'close with Alabama for most of the game until the Crimson Tide came out with a 327 win. The week before, Alabama only took down LSU by 6, 27-21. UF's players sprint out of the tunnel hyped, and they stay hyped. The Gators have outscored their last six opponents -all SEC teams -101-0 in the first quarter. "In the locker room before the game, we get so much balled-up energy," sophomore cornerback Joe Haden said. "It doesn't matter who we play. We've got a plan." Percy Harvin must've been a big part of that plan. The junior do-it-all speedster finished with 173 total yards, 167 of which were rushing, and two touchdowns. Junior middle linebacker Brandon Spikes said "you can't" cover Harvin, and sophomore strong safety Ahmad Black said it is "impossible" to cover him. In what was a near video game-like play, Harvin took the ball twice on the same counter run and had two touchdowns of 26 and 80 yards. He touched the ball just nine times. "If he was a tailback on somebody else's team, he'd be a 200-yardsa-game guy," Spurrier said. The scary part for opponents is that it's not just Harvin. The Gators finished with 367 yards on the ground and had six different receivers catch passes. The last time they rushed for 300 yards against an SEC Team was Oct. 12, 1996, against LSU. "Our numbers have been outrageous," Harvin said. That's true on offense and defense. The Gators picked off Gamecocks quarterbacks three times and held them to just 173 yards of offense. It was South Carolina's worst loss since it fell to UF 63-7 in 1995 with, you guessed it, Spurrier as the coach. Since their 31-30 loss against Mississippi on Sept. 27, the Gators haven't won by fewer than 28. "I probably didn't envision winning by this much," said quarterback Tim Tebow, who had three total touchdowns. "But the effort and enthusiasm, absolutely (I expected)." The Gators are potentially four games away from their second national championship in three years. "That was the best defense I have ever played against," South Carolina quarterback Chris Smelley said. That's not something Gators fans have heard in a long time. It's not something Alabama wants to hear, either. The craziest stat in Harvin's Hicks' phenomenal play does It was no seven-touchdown B.

Sports MONDAY, NOVEMBER 17,2008 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org UF FOOTBALL Hicks leads defense to two interceptions in blowout By EVAN DREXLER Alligator Staff Writer edrexier@aligator.org UF linebacker Brandon Hicks had one start this season coming into Saturday's game against South Carolina. He made his second one count. Beginning the game at weakside linebacker in place of A.J. Jones (sprained PCL in his knee), Hicks was key on UF's two first-quarter interceptions and a catalyst for the No. 3 Gators' 56-6 win over No. 24 South Carolina. For starters, Hicks applied pressure to South Carolina quarterback Chris Smelley and forced him to float a pass that K' linebacker Brandon Spikes returned for the Gators' first touchdown. "He was trying to throw it off his back foot, trying to run away from the rush," Hicks said. "I was just hoping in my head, I was like, 'I know somebody's there."' Two South Carolina plays later, Hicks leaped up at the line, batting a Smelley pass into the arms of strong safety Ahmad lack and setting up UF's next score. And that's not all. He sacked Smelley for a loss of 7 yards late in the quarter on the play immediately after his deflection. Hicks said it was the best day in his career. UF coach Urban Meyer recognizes the depth of his defense and said competition in practice for playing time will increase in intensity. "I got a feeling A.J. Jones is going to practice real hard if he wants to play," Meyer said. "You want to play on team right now. There are guys fighting." The Gators defense and special teams stymied the Gamecocks throughout the game.

UF finally wins columnist over By BOBBY CALLOVI Alligator Writer bcallovi@aligator.org With time winding down, the Gators made one final attempt to take a lead into the half. Lindsay Thompson received the ball from Angela Napolitano with under 10 seconds left. She calmly turned and fired the ball past Central Florida goalie Aline Reis with only four seconds to go, scoring the latest goal in a half in UP history. "When it came to me, I was just thinking, 'Hurry up, hurry up, just get it in,"' Thompson said. When the Gators took the field in the second period, the momentum was behind them. They continued to put pressure on the Golden Knights en route to a 2-0 win to advance to the Round of 16 in the NCAA Tournament and redeem their 1-0 loss to UCF earlier this season. Despite dominating most of the match against UCF on Aug. 29 -the Gators outshot the Knights 17 to 6 and 8 to 2 in shots on goal -No. 2 seed UF couldn't get a goal on Reis. It was much of the same on Sunday -UF had 20 shots and 7 were on goal to UCF's 7 and 1except this time the Gators took advantage of their chances. Even though Sarah Chapman's apparent goal was taken away because of Soccer an offsides call, the Gators felt confident they would take advantage of similar opportunities later. Forward Areera Abdullah said they knew if they were in the right spots, they would be able to beat Reis on crosses. UCF coach Amanda Cromwell made one last attempt with 17 minutes remaining in the match to score an equalizer by subbing in five players to prepare a switch in formations. Before the transition was complete, Megan Kerns capitalized on her own rebound to give SEE SOCCER, PAGE 20 O-4 kay, I'm convinced. During UP's six-game Uwin streak, fans and media members alike have been showering the Gators with praise and anointing them a national title favorite, but I held back. I figured there had to be another Mississippi-like performance left in this team, and the defense couldn't keep this up forever, right? Well, as usual, I couldn't have been more wrong. And I apologize for what I'm about to say if it brings on any bad luck, but I'm pretty sure this team is jinx-proof. UP is the best football team I have ever seen. Granted, the list of good teams I have watched regularly is short -the 1999 East Carolina team that defeated Miami and Nease High's state championship squad are near the top -but I was a freshman when the 2006 Gators won the national title, and this year's version is better. What the Gators have done in the Mike McCall McCall-in' it Like I See It mmccall@ailigator.org last six games clearly makes them the best team in the nation, and they've ruined the meaning of numbers for me. Th e y crushed No. 24 South Carolina 56-6 on Saturday, and it took quite a while for that to sink in. That means UF demolished a ranked team, and the then-best total defense in the SEC, by fifty points. Since losing to Mississippi, the Gators have outscored their last six Southeastern Conference opponents 299-63, meaning they put up an equal amount of points against Kentucky (which led the SEC in scoring defense at that point) as they have allowed in a month and a half.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2008 N ALLIGATOR, 19 UF MEN'S BASKETBALL Gators overcome lack of experience, inside play By MIKE DIFERDINANDO Alligator Staff Writer mdiferdinando@a1igator.org It was a baptism by fire, and the Gators nearly got burned. Often outmuscled and almost outmatched, No. 19 UF (2-0) scrapped its way to an 81-58 win against Bradley (1-1) on Sunday at the O'Connell Center during the second round of the O'Reilly Auto Parts CBE Classic. The veteran team out of the Missouri Valley Conference came to Gainesville unafraid. The Braves, who started four upperclassmen, pushed around the less-experienced Gators for most of the afternoon in a game that played out much closer than the final score indicates. "We're going to see (older teams) during the season," UF guard Nick Calathes said. "That's the SEC Tournament and, if we make the NCAA Tournament, that's the NCAA Tournament, too. So, we better get used to it." Seven-foot Bradley center David Collins had his way with Alex Tyus in the first half until foul trouble forced Collins to the bench. "We would have liked to do more inside and around the basket," UF coach Billy Donovan said. Collins and forward Sam Singh on the glass. UF tried to relieve Tyus with freshmen Allan Chaney and Kenny Kadji, but neither seemed to find a rhythm. "I got blown by a few times," Chaney said. "Coach got on me about that." "We would have liked to do more inside and around the basket." Billy Donovan UF men's basketball coach Donovan said a lack of conditioning has limited the minutes the tandem has been able to play. The pair only grabbed five rebounds. "Both of those guys fatigue a little faster than I would like," Donovan said. Without a strong inside game, the Gators were forced to, once again, live or die by their outside shooting. For now, that strategy worked. UF took 32 3-point attempts in the game and knocked down 14 of them. "We won the game today because of the 3-point line," Donovan said. The Gators' last seven field goals came from behind the arc., By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC Alligator Writer cyazbec@alligator.org The UF women's basketball team's season opener on Friday night didn't go as well as the team had hoped, thanks to a feisty underdog. The Gators' road trip to Florida Gulf Coast proved to be no snoozer, and the Eagles escaped with an 8886 victory, avenging their two defeats to UF last year. "It's very obvious how prepared they were, how emotionally up they were for this game," UF coach Amanda Butler said. "We knew we were going to be tested, a lot of adverse conditions." UF stormed back after being down 13 with about 11 minutes left in the second half to take a 76-74 lead with about six minutes remaining. The two teams went back and forth from there with six lead changes. Florida Gulf Coast regained the lead 85-84 with about 35 seconds to go and held on for the win. The Gators missed two key layups in the final minute and a half that would have put them on top. "We got the looks that we wanted there those last few possessions. We just didn't put them in the hole," Butler said. "You can't choke it down when you've got that opportunity to put the ball into the hole." Butler was disappointed with her team's defense throughout the game. The Gators allowed the Eagles to shoot 50 percent from the field and 57 percent from behind the arc, a recipe for disaster. "We obviously still have a lot of work to do," Butler said. many to Wichita State on March 3, 2003. Ironically, the Braves have been one of the nation's best 3point shooting teams over the last two years, making 695 in that span. Only Virginia Military Institute and Houston have made more. Walter Hodge (5) and. Dan Werner (4) tied their career highs from 3-point land. After missing 94 of his 136 shots from 3-point range last year, Werner seems to have found his stride. "I was building (brick) houses last year," he joked. Bradley started the second half on a 10-1 run that cut UF's lead to 43-35. It looked as though the Braves might have shot their way back into the game until point guard Erving Walker started the barrage of threes that would eventually put an end to the Bradley rally with a little more than 10 minutes left in the game. Chandler Parsons has gotten off to a slow start offensively this season. The sophomore has scored 12 points through the Gators' first two games. "His shot obviously isn't falling, but his reboundingis a lot more important than that," Calathes said. The Gators will have to try and rebound from their first loss tonight at 7 in the O'Connell Center when they host Jacksonville, and if last year is any indication, it won't be easy. The Dolphins defeated UF last season in Jacksonville, 75-64. "Another excellent team. Our state, I think, is very talented this year," Butler said. "We went to Jacksonville and lost last year. "We've got to bounce back and get ourselves ready to defend our home court." There were a few bright spots for UF on Friday Jennifer Mossor scored a caButler reer-high 22 points in the loss. "It was great to see her feeling it, especially hitting a few big threes for us and making plays down the stretch in the second half that gave us a chance to win," Butler said. Marshae Dotson had 22 points, and Sharielle Smith fell just short of a double-double with 16 points and nine rebounds. It was somewhat of a homecoming for junior guard Steffi Sorensen, who began her career at Florida Golf Coast. She added 9 points and fouled out in her first regular season game as a Gator. Despite some good offensive performances, Butler knows her team will have to tighten up defensively. "In crucial moments we had some breakdowns," Butler said. "And when you're playing against a good team on their home court, you lose." A radio broadcast contributed to this report. Harrison Diamond / Alligator Staff UF forward Dan Werner looks for a way around a defender during the first half of the Gators' 80-58 win against Toledo on Friday night. Calathes cleared in poker investigation 0 HE DID NOT VIOLATE ANY NCAA RULES. By MIKE DiFERDINANDO Alligator Staff Writer mdiferdinando@alligator.org A UF athletic department investigation into alleged student-athlete gambling revealed that UP guard Nick Calathes reportedly ran up a $600 online poker debt. The NCAA does not prohibit athletes from playing online poker, and Calathes has been cleared of any wrongdoing. "We became aware of certain allegations over the weekend and immediately looked into it," UF Athletics Director Jeremy Foley said in a statement Friday. "We reviewed everything very thoroughly and are satisfied with our results. We have no eligibility issues and are very comfortable that this issue is resolved based on our review." UF coach Billy Donovan said he is comfortable with how the situation was resolved. "We heard the rumors, and we reacted to the rumors, responded to them, talked to Nick, talked to the team handled the whole situation," he said. "To me, it's not even a story. There's no story. Nobody did anything wrong." Betting on sports is an NCAA violation that results in a one-year suspension from play Calathes did not bet on sports and is not under any further investigation. "I talked to coach Donovan, I talked to the school, and nothing happened," said Men's Calathes, who Basketball did admit he plays online poker. "I didn't do anything wrong. I didn't do anything illegal." Former UF guair Teddy Dupay was kicked off the team in September 2001 following a six-month gambling investigation by law enforcement. Dupay admitted he violated NCAA rules by betting on sporting events. Calathes scored 13 points in UF's win against Badley on Sunday.

20, ALLAATOR E MONDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2008 Spurrier's offensive trickery stopped DEFENSE, from page 17 Spurrier switched quarterbacks on almost every play during the first half. South Carolina had 74 passing yards in the half. Spurrer tried a tricky backward lateral on the kickoff after UF's second touchdown, and his team fumbled the ball to set up a 1-yard scoring drive for the Gators. Spurrier attempted a play from his "Emory & Henry" ILrmation -where he has three down lineman in front of the quarterback and five receivers wide left -and the play resulted in an incompletion after being defended perfectly by the Gators' cornerbacks. It was an especially impressive performance for the UF defense because it outshined the South Carolina defense that Meyer spent the entire Football week praising. Meyer's defense wound up scoring as many points (6) as the Gamecocks' offense. "We heard about that all week," Hicks said. "We felt like we had to show .America we're the best defense." UF meets up with Texas A&M on Sunday SOQ ER, from page 17 the Gators breathing room. "We were talking about going to a 3 (defenders)-4 (midfielders)-3 (forwards) before they even scored that second goal, so we were like 'ugh' (when Kerns scored)," Cromwell said. Even when UCF was able to get the lineup in, UF's defense made goalie Katie Fraine's job easy, as the only shot on goal was taken from about 30 yards out. The UF defense played one of its best Thompson games, despite f r e s h m a n Jazmyne Avant not starting for the first time all year. She struggled to regain her composure after scoring an own goal against Georgia and then committing the turnover that allowed California to score its goal Friday Avant made her entrance into the game in the 60th minute to defend UCF's speedy defenderplaying-forward, Nikki Moore. UF will take on Texas A&M in the teams' third-round match Sunday at 1 p.m. at Pressly Stadium. MIKE, from page 17 We all knew that Tim Tebow, Percy Harvin and the rest of UF's offense would rank as one of the nation's best units, but the defense and special teams are clicking at an elite level, too. Coach Urban Meyer isn't ready to call the Gators better than the 2006 team, but take it from South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier, whose Gamecocks came within a few fingers of taking UF down two seasons ago. "This team is a lot better than the one two years ago," Spurrier said. "I said they had a chance because they won all of the close ones two years ago. This team they have now is a lot stronger than that one, in my opinion." He's absolutely right. The Gators are scoring 14.4 more points per game and giving up 2.2 less, and this week they became the first squad in SEC history to win six straight league games by 28 points or more, including a 101-0 margin in the first quarter. This offense is better than the one led by Chris Leak, but the defense is improved too. The line may not be good as the one led by Jarvis Moss and Ray McDonald, but the linebackers and secondary are playing as well as anyone could ask for. There's no Reggie Nelson locking things down at safety -although Will Hill looked an awful lot like The Eraser with his interception Saturday -but the unit still has 17 picks and five touchdowns. The only thing keeping Meyer from acknowledging this team as his best is the 2006 .Gators' win against Ohio State for the national championship. But even he knows that if UF keeps up its current level of play, he'll have to change his stance on Jan. 8 in Miami. THEN With so many great deals, you may want to let your pen decide.
