STORMING TO ATLANTA


UF ready

for SEC title

By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

TALLAHASSEE - It seemed
appropriate that the final step
to Atlanta would resemble a
swamp.
With rain hailing from the
heavens, the No. 2 Gators avoid-
ed a slip-up and continued their
dominating ways Saturday,
blowing out the Seminoles 45-15
in front of 83,237 poncho-don-
ning fans.
UF's offensive output set a
team record for points at the
58-year-old Doak S. Campbell
Stadium, but the biggest ques-
tion stemmed from a second-
quarter fall.
How is Percy Harvin?
The junior playmaker drew a
gasp from the UF faithful when
he took a direct snap, ran left but


could not get back to his feet.
After a lengthy look from
trainers on the field, he did his
best to try and walk off, but the
hobble could not be missed.
Coach Urban Meyer called it
an ankle sprain after the game
Saturday and did not reveal
much more Sunday evening,
classifying Harvin as question-
able for this week. The junior
will not practice the next few
days.
"He's here today, and he's
moving around a little bit,"
Meyer said Sunday evening.
With or without Harvin, UF
can finally turn its attention to
a game that has gathered hype
for weeks.
No. 1 Alabama (12-0, 8-0
Southeastern Conference) will
face No. 2 UF (11-1, 7-1 SEC) on
Saturday in the first-ever meet-
ing between top-two teams in
the SEC Championship. This
game has also essentially be-
come a play-in for a spot in the
BCS title game.

Attacks affect locals


By THOMAS STEWART

During his Thanksgiving break,
Viraj Mehta, vice president of the
Indian Student Association, spent
hours watching the terrorist attacks
in Mumbai unfold on CNN.
According to the latest reports, as
bodies were still being removed from
the Taj Mahal Palace & Tower hotel,
the government was reporting that
at least 174 people had died in the
attacks.
The attacks' .impacted students


and Gainesville residents with con-

Military sign-ups increase


By ANDREA ASUAJE
Alligator Writer
aasuaje@alligator.org

As many job hunters face a wobbly
economy, military recruitment is creeping
upward.
Ted Jones, spokesman for the Jacksonville
Army Recruiting Battalion, said the north
Florida and south Georgia area where the
group recruits has shown a slight increase.
Jones said recruitment numbers increase
every time the economy begins to decline.
"We don't like a bad economy," he said.
"But it's just the way things have played
out."
Other reasons for joining the military
have stayed relatively the same, he said,
such as a strong sense of patriotism, training
in fields such as engineering and mechani-


cal maintenance, and getting money for
college.
"We get a lot of people who come to us who
are looking to get those loanspaid off," he said.
He also said a potential exit strategy to
the Iraq war, proposed by President-elect
Barack Obama, might be an enticing factor
for young people to enlist.
"We've got a lot more positive news com-
ing out of Iraq," he said. "The situation there
has certainly improved."
Local army recruitment has also seen an
increase through its last fiscal year, though
Sgt. First Class James Dowdy said he's un-
sure why.
Dowdy, who works at the U.S. Armed
Forces Recruitment Center in Butler Plaza,
said there has been a 23 percent increase in

Station name honors Parks


By KIM LIBBY
Alligator Contributing Writer
The Sunday afternoon drizzle
did not damage the spirits' of
the Rosa Parks Quiet Courage
Committee members as they saw
their dedication pay off.
Members of the committee
gathered with about 100 others
to rename the Regional Transit
System Downtown Station.
It will now be called the. Rosa
Parks Regional Transit System
Downtown Station in honor of
the mother of the modem-day
civil rights movement.
"In 2008, we can get on buses
here and sit anywhere we want
to," the Rev. Milford Lewis Griner
told the crowd.
"This event just shows that in
the future, nobody will stop us
and turn us around from any new
challenges."
Griner started the committee
three years ago to honor Parks
and to continue her legacy, mem-


ber Harriet Ludwig said.
The group is known for giving
out the Quiet Courage award to
people who have advanced civil
rights locally.
"This event just shows
that in the future, nobody
will stop us and turn us
around from any new
challenges."
the Rev. Milford Lewis Griner
Rosa Parks Quiet Courage
Committee founder

After hearing a suggestion
from former city commission can-
didate Armando Grundy, Griner
proposed renaming the station to
the Gainesville City Commission
on Feb. 11. The commission unan-
imously approved the idea.
The dedication followed a
service at Mt. Carmel Baptist
Church. Afterward, three buses
with displays reading '"Rosa


Parks Freedom Ride" shuttled
people to the bus depot in a
procession following the lead of
police cars with lights and sirens.
City Manager Russ Blackburn
told the crowd he was pleased
and proud to have the station
renamed.
He said it was appropriate
given Gainesville's civil rights
history. He called the ceremony a
testament to Rosa Parks, the com-
mittee and the work that made
the name change happen.
A new bronze plaque at the
bus station near Southeast Depot
Avenue was covered in tradition-
al African kente cloth.
Committee member NkWanda
Jah said they used the cloth be-
cause the people of the commit-
tee and church will never forget
their origins. After unveiling the
plaque, spectators looked at it,
touched it and sang with joy.
The event stressed the impor-
tance of teaching about Parks'
legacy to church youth, Jah said.


Sunday rain keeps


fire, fighters at bay


Weather conditions forced
crews to stop fighting a 300-acre
fire in eastern Alachua County
after noon Sunday, but the rain
probably won't stop the blaze.
The Levy Prairie fire, north
of Hawthorne, has been con-
tained since shortly after being
reported at about 5 p.m. Friday,
said Ludie Bond, spokeswoman
with the State Division of
Forestry.
Workers from the State
Division of Forestry, along
with Putnam County Fire
Department and local volunteer
departments, plowed ditches to
keep the fire from spreading,
Bond said.
Bond said she thinks the fire
was man-made because there
was no stormy weather Friday


for lightning to start it.
Although the fire in the
swampy hammock land saw a
lot of rain on Sunday, the area is
so large that not all of it received
heavy rainfall, she
said.
LOCal This is the larg-
News est fire of the win-
ter season, which
started in October.
Aburn ban was instituted on
Tuesday prohibiting homeown-
ers from burning yard debris,
Bond said.
Because the burn ban can
only be in effect for a week at
a time, the Alachua County
Commission will decide this
week whether to keep the ban
in place.

Florida teen discovers possible colon cancer cure


* KYLE JONES PRESENTED FINDINGS
IN LAST YEAR'S SCIENCE FAIR.

By MARGARET CUNNINGHAM
Alligator Contributing Writer

Although Kyle Jones of The Villages
Charter High School may look like your av-
erage teenager, this soft-spoken 17-year-old
might have found a cure for colon cancer.
For his science project last fall, Jones tested
the effects of conjugated linoleic acid, known
as CLA, an amino acid found mostly in meat
and dairy products, on human colon cancer
at M.D. Anderson Cancer Cenfer in Orlando.
His results showed that up to 90 percent of
the colon cancer cells were killed within three


days, indicating that the chemical properties
of CLA could possibly be used as an effective
treatment for colon cancer.
"It surprised me mainly how devastating
it was to the cancer cells," he said.
Jones has not continued his research
since the initial-project was completed, but
researchers at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center
are conducting more extensive studies on
CLA as well as other potential cancer thera-
peutics. Jones said it would take several years
before any sufficient results are obtained.
At the school science fair in January and
regional science fair in February, he won
first place overall. At the Intel International
Science and Engineering Fair in May, he
won second place from the U.S. Patent and
Trademark Office Society for innovative proj-
ects that could be translated into products

Florida-FSU rivalry sparks local food drive donations


* TALLAHASSEE BEAT
GAINESVILLE IN THE CONTEST.

By CODY BOND
Alligator Contributing Writer

In a last-ditch effort to sup-
port local food pantries this
Thanksgiving, the Make a Play
Foundation developed a sure-fire
plan to get people involved: ex-
ploiting a heated college rivalry.
The organization's inaugural


Thanksgiving Rivals Challenge:
Food Fight ended Friday.
Tallahassee won the head-to-head
food drive competition against
Gainesville.
Whether it was goodwill or team
spirit, Gator and Seminole fans
donated about 22,000 pounds of
non-perishable food items at Publix
stores in each city, said Alecia Pynn,
the foundation's executive director.
Although Tallahassee won
the competition,- Gainesville par-


ticipants still managed to donate
almost 7,000 pounds of canned
goods and nearly $1,200 in a little
more than a week, Pynn said.
All donations will remain in
their respective cities, she said.
Deborah Talbot, development
coordinator for the Bread of the
Mighty Food Bank, which the
competition benefited, said a year
of inflated food prices and national
economic crises has taken a toll on
local charities.


By the end of October, the
food bank's shelves were nearly
empty. But a surge of donations in
November made it possible to send
400 holiday food boxes to needy
families in Alachua County, Talbot
said.
Local Part of that surge
News came from UF's sec-
ond annual Chomp
Out Hunger food drive, which col-
lected 800 pounds of canned goods
from competing student organiza-


tions between Nov. 17 and Nov. 21.
The Student Finance Group
donated the most with 263 pounds,
said Matt Kaufmann and Rishabh
Das, the food drive's coordinators.
Chomp Out Hunger was spon-
sored by Students in Free Enterprise
and counted toward UF's total in
the Make a Play Foundation's Food
Fight.
Both organizations said they
plan to hold the competition again
next year.


UF Army ROTC course has seen 40 percent enrollment increase


MILITARY, from page 1'


enlistment since the last fiscal year, which
ended in October 2007.
Local ROTC programs have seen a huge
increase in numbers, but one official said he
doesn't think it's the poor economy.
Lt. Col. Michael Rosamond, professor
of military science for the UF Army ROTC,
said-the program has seen a 40 percent in-


crease in students joining the class, which
he attributes to publicity about the class and
word of mouth.
Rosamond said the reason so many have
joined the class couldn't be the economy
because the increase was noticed in August,
'before the economic downturn.
"Everyone thinks that once the economy
goes bad, people flock to the military," he
said. "It has nothing to do with the econo-
my."


"Everyone thinks that once the
economy goes bad, people flock to

One student said money is the main rea-
son he enlisted.
Santa Fe College nursing student John


Palmer, 18, said he had never considered
joining the military until he turned 18 and
had to face monetary problems.
Palmer said many of his friends are also
enlisting so the military can pay for school
and give them jobs.
He said he wants to finish his degree
as soon as he is done serving in the Air
Force, but first, he needs the service for the
money.
"Its a lack of choices," Palmer said.

Editorial


Science Fair

Local teen blinds Ed

Board with science
A 17-year-old from The Villages recently found a poten-
tial cure for cancer while doing a science project for
S school. Seriously.
The Editorial Board has never claimed to be a group of sci-
ence whizzes. In fact, we have often reiterated just how one-
dimensional we are when it comes to school. Give us words,
limited space and a deadline - add any other variables and
we're screwed.
We are in absolute awe that a teenager has happened
upon a specific amino acid able to kill a significant amount of
colon cancer cells (it killed up to 90 percent of the cancerous
cells in the sample).
This 21st-century Doogie Howser puts our old science
projects to shame, but we are absolutely not embarrassed.
We were always the unenthusiastic kids with the lam-
est science projects. We didn't actually care which brand of
paper towel absorbed the most liquid; we just didn't care
enough to come up with a project idea that might actually
serve a purpose.
We think what this young man did is incredible. During
the summer, he worked with a UF professor on a project con-
cerning stem cells - they were searching for alternatives to
using the cells, and no embryos were involved.
The amino acid used in the project is being studied by the
M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Orlando to determine how
effective it could be as a cancer therapeutic, but it may take
years to obtain significant findings.
In the meantime, we hope this kid's research is as ground-
breaking as it seems to be, and we wish him the best of luck.


Black-eyed Friday


f there is any lesson to be
learned from our parents
and grandparents, it's that
we shouldn't trample Wal-
Mart greeters to death the day
after Thanksgiving.
Black Friday supposedly
gets its name from the post-
Turkey Day sales spike that
moves many businesses into
the profit zone. We respect-
fully disagree. How many
minimum wage workers and
pregnant women need to
get squashed in the name of
PlayStation 3 before we real-
ize how utterly stupid it is to
shop on Black Friday?
If your snot-nosed little
tot doesn't get the useless
piece of plastic he wants, is
he really going to hate you
forever? We've been in those
bratty little shoes before; if
we didn't get the one toy we
really wanted, then we just
borrowed it from one of our
liuttt-iole frieiids wvho did. 'In


the end it didn't matter be-
cause we probably had more
fun with their Nintendo 64
than they did.
We also don't understand
the allure of lining up outside
of Toys "R" Us before dawn
to ensure you won't fail as a
parent. Hasn't anyone heard
of the Internet?
Wal-Mart certainly knows
what the Internet is, which is
why the company lists all the
products it has for sale on its
Web site. The best part is you
can pre-order them so you can
sleep in after you stuff your
face full of pumpkin pie.
The Editorial Board sug-
gests that our generation
learn from the wake-up-be-
fore-dawn-to-shop mistakes
of our parents, and pre-order
gifts on the Internet. That way
no one will get trampled, and
your primary parenting flaw
will be a lack of planning, not
a brittle spine.

Opinions


Column

Obama choosing C
Regardless of whether you were elated, irritated,
or apathetic, you can agree that this election was
epic.
With the drama of the Republican primaries and
President-elect Barack Obama's crushing electoral vic-
tory, this election had something for everybody and was
electrifying to watch.
As the U.S. and the world turn their collective atten-
tion to issues such as the slumping global economy and
worldwide terrorist attacks, they are putting the most
crucial part of the transition from President George W.
Bush to Obama on the back burner: the appointment of
White House staff and Cabinet positions.
The real legwork of any administration comes in these
appointments. President Ronald Reagan was. noted for
his effective use of White House advisers and staff po-
sitions, while President Abraham Lincoln surrounded
himself with rivals and political outsiders. So far, Obama
has been extremely effective across the board with his ap-
pointments.
To begin, Obama announced Illinois Rep. Rahm
Emmanuel as his choice for White House chief of staff.
A cutthroat and experienced politician, Emmanuel will
not only be able to rally the legislative branch to work
effectively with an Obama administration, but he has po-
litical experience as a U.S. representative and is a former
adviser to President Bill Clinton.
When it comes to national defense, Obama has decid-
ed to shake things up by not changing anything. Obama
is sticking with Bush-appointed Defense Secretary Robert
Gates.
Not only does this show that Obama is willing to cross
the aisle, it also shows he believes in Gates' handling of
the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
Regarding the economic crisis, Timothy Geithner,
president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, will


ALLIGATOR
www.alligator.org/opinion


cabinet, staff wisely
lead the recovery team as he has
'been officially nominated treasury
secretary.
Politicians across the spectrum
have acknowledged Geithner for
his experience and steady hand.
Kyle Robisch New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson
Speaking Out is reported to have accepted the
position of commerce secretary, a
position where Richardson's expe-
rience would be hard to rival.
The secretary of state office will be filled by another
high-profile name. Obama and his top presidential pri-
mary rival, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, have reached
an agreement to have Clinton serve as the country's inter-
national ambassador, or secretary of state.
Although she is perceived as more hawkish than
Obama, Clinton's international stature should help re-
store America's goodwill and shore up relations with key
allies around the world.
The only potential weak link in Obama's appoint-
ments lies with Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano for the
Department of Homeland Security director. Although
Napolitano has law enforcement experience as a state
attorney general, she has little counter-terrorism experi-
ence. \
Even though his staff choices have been solid thus far,
Obama will need more than the right personnel to follow
through on his guarantee ,of change. If he combines the
right people with the right policy choices, Obama just
might get us out of the red.
On the whole, Obama's Cabinet and White House staff
should increase the effectiveness of his administration as
he navigates the U.S. through a hostile world and a dev-
astating financial crisis.
Kyle Robisch is a political science and economics sopho-
more. His column appears on Mondays.

Depleted D-line no problem as Gators stuff 'Noles


V . O* UF silences FSU's runners

UF linebackers Brandon Hicks (left) and Brandon Spikes (center) take down FSU running back Antone
Smith during the Gators' 45-15 win against the Seminoles in Doak Campbell Stadium on Saturday.


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

TALLAHASSEE - That de-
pleted defensive line wasn't such
a big problem after all.
With an MCL injury to fresh-
man Matt Patchan, sophomore
Brandon Antwine leaving the
game with a knee injury and nose
guard Lawrence Marsh (MCL
sprain) hobbled, Florida State had
good reason to hope its 190.2 rush-
ing yards per game could pummel
the Gators.
The Seminoles' ground at-
tack, second in the Atlantic Coast
Conference, could control the
clock, and, maybe, have a shot
against a team that has defeated
its opponents by an average of 41
points the past seven games.
Not exactly.
UF's defense showed once
again it is a transformed unit
from a year ago as it stuffed the
Seminoles' ground game for just
102 yards in the Gators' 45-15


romp Saturday afternoon at Doak
S. Campbell Stadium.
While FSU freshman running
back Jermaine Thomas did get
into the end zone on a 4-yard skip
with 7:43 left in the third quarter,
it was the Seminoles' first rushing
touchdown in the last 117 minutes
of play in this rivalry series.
"We have a pretty good
amount of depth on the D-line,"
sophomore defensive lineman
Justin Trattou said. "We didn't
skip a beat."
However you want to put it,
UF's defense was on top of its
game Saturday. The Seminoles
had 527 yards on the ground in
their last three wins, all conference
games.
"FSU, the last several weeks,
have been punching numbers up
pretty good," UF coach Urban
Meyer said.
Those numbers were halted by
a group of players who have had
their pride kick in. Last season,

Take pity on Seminoles seniors


TALLAHASSEE -
If you're a fourth-year senior and a
UF sports fan, you better thank your
parents for conceiving you at the
right time.
In your three-and-a-half years -in
Gainesville, you've seen two national
championships in men's basketball.
You've seen one national champion-
ship and one Southeastern Conference
Championship in football. You might have
another one of each very soon.
The Gators are 11-1 in rivalry games in
your time here, or, as Urban Meyer correct-
ed a reporter Saturday, 12-1 if you include
the Miami win earlier this season.
"But who's counting?" Meyer joked.
For that matter, you've never known
- anyone but Meyer as your football coach.
You've seen the Gators volleyball team
win its 15th, 16th, 17th and 18th straight
Southeastern Conference Championships.
And you've seen a softball team come
within one game of a championship series.
You might see.them get.there this year.
Yes, you're a privileged group, you
fourth-year seniors.
But have you ever once stopped to
think of the other guy? The poor, defense-


less, fourth-year Seminole? After reading
this laundry list of their failures, maybe
you should lighten up on your brethren
from the school out west.
Though things started out great
for -those guys with an Atlantic Coast
Conference Championship in 2005, it was
all downhill from
there.
The Seminoles
football team has
lost five straight
games to the
Gators. FSU has
Evan Drexler lost three of four
The Drex Factor to Clemson. The
edrexler@alligator.org Seminoles haven't
made the ACC
Championship Game since 2005 and have
squeezed two six-loss seasons in between
two four-loss years.
They lost a bowl gaine to Kentucky.
The men's basketball team hasn't made
the NCAA Tournament in the current
fourth-year seniors' time in Tallahassee. In
fact, men's basketball at FSU hasn't known
the NCAA postseason since 1998. FSU

Parsons finally finds shot


By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

ORLANDO - After an early season
full of glass and iron, Chandler Parsons
finally found some nylon.
Parsons shot through his frustration to
score 17 points in No. 17 UF's (5-1) 86-65
win against Missouri-Kansas City (3-5) on
Sunday during the Florida Hospital Gator
Jam at Amway Arena.
The Casselberry native, who. was
replaced in the starting lineup for the sec-
ond consecutive game by freshman Allan
Chaney, rediscovered his touch in front of
an arena full of family and friends.
"A lot of times when a player feels like
his back is'against the wall, you get to the
point where you just go back to the most
basic things," UF coach Billy Donovan
said. "Chandler went out there and de-
cided to be aggressive and just play."


Parsons was averaging 6 points per
game and shooting just 35 percent from
the field before breaking out against the
Kangaroos.
"I'm a confident shooter. I wasn't wor-
ried about them falling,"
Parsons said.
Even though Parsons
finally got his shooting
Men's on track, the game was
Basketball far from the easy win
UF hoped for when the
game was scheduled.
With just under five minutes left in
the first half, Missouri-Kansas City guard
Dane Brumagin (14 points in the half)
helped shoot his team to a 32-29 lead, but"
the Gators quickly dosed the door with an
11-0 run to end the half.
The Gators' hot shooting continued in
the second. UF opened the half with a 7-0

Gators did not change gameplan in rain


SEC, from page 1


Much of the hysteria surrounds the Gators, who
have scored 42 or more points in seven straight
games and have surpassed 500 yards of total offense
the past three weeks.
A line installed Sunday from one Las Vegas sports
book set UF as a 7.5-point favorite for the Georgia
Dome showdown.
This against a Crimson Tide team that steamrolled
Auburn 36-0 at home on Saturday to finish a perfect
regular season. Alabama coach Nick Saban played
sly when asked if he would use his team's "under-
dog" status as fuel this week.
"(UF) certainly deserves all the accolades that
their team gets," Saban said. "We have enough moti-
vatioh in terms of the opportunity that we have and
what's out there for our team."
But Saturday was one final test for UF against
another overmatched opponent. ,
Quarterback Tim Tebow threw for 185 yards and
three touchdowns and ran for 80 yards and another
score in one of his last performances to be seen by
Heisman voters. The junior's demeanor changed
when FSU fans cheered after Harvin's injury.
"That was one of the first times I've seen practi-
cally the whole stadium cheer when Percy got hurt,"
said Tebow, who ran it in from 4 yards out two plays
later. "I didn't think that showed very good sports-
manship. So that kind of irritated me. And I really
told coach to just give me the ball, because I really
wanted to hit somebody extremely hard on the next
play"
The pregame downpour led Meyer to think about
changing the offensive game plan. He joked that he
"probably would've run (Tebow) 50 times."

Offensive coordinator Dan Mullen disagreed
after watching his players deal with the weather in
warm-ups.
"Let's just roll with the plan," Mullen said.
It worked.
Jeff Demps carried nine times for 89 yards and a
score, his best showing in six games. Chris Rainey
picked up where he left off against The Citadel, go-
ing for 97 yards on eight carries, including a 62-yard
scamper. Tight end Aaron Hernandez had one of his
biggest games of the season, catching four passes for
a season-high 61 yards and two scores.
And this was a game that meant
a little extra to the UF family. Players
and coaches wore sweatbands in-
scribed with the initials "R.W." to
Football honor Rob Webster, stepfather of
twins Mike and Maurkice Pouncey

practice on Wednesday at Webster's request.
"It was sad," Mike Pouncey said. "I didn't get
to talk to him the first day because they had him
knocked out on pain medicine. The next day, he woke
up, and he said he wanted us to live the dream that
he always wanted to have. So we're going out and
playing our best so we can make it for him."
Pouncey said Webster plans to do whatever neces-
sary to make it to Atlanta for next week's collision of
No. 1 and No. 2.
After all, this week is.the chance to realize an off-
season's worth of goals, and Meyer knows it.
"That's why we get up, that's why we shave,
that's why we brush our teeth, that's why we hug
our kids - to go to that dome."

The beloved quarterback is making a late-season
push to the top of the Swamp Studs standings. We
have a feeling he'll wind up on top when it's all said -
and done. Tebow continued to dominate the opposing
defense this week, torching the Seminoles for three
. passing touchdowns and even leading a two-minute
drill for a touchdown. We don't want to imagine what
he could have done if it wasn't raining.
12-21 passing, 185 yds. 3 TDs. 16 rushes, 80 yds, 1TDI

Hernandez was the happy recipient of two of Tebow's
three passing touchdowns. Both times, he was
unbelievably wide open. The first time, he started the
play looking like he was g6ing to block, and the second
time, he just beat the coverage. The tight end is looking
great this season, and the position has not at all been
a weak spot for the Gators after Cornelius Ingram went
down with a torn ACL before the season started.
4 recs, 61 yds, 2 TDs .

This kid is a freshman? The Seminoles threw
everything they had at him early, and they found out
the hard way that he is not an easy target for their
receivers. Jenkins' most outstanding play may have
been a bone-crunching hit inside the FSU end zone
that was flagged for helmet-to-helmet contact: The hit,
along with his interception later on, drew gasps from
an already deflated crowd in Tallahassee.

UF WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

Gators take Junkanoo title


By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Alligator Writer
cyazbec@alligator.org

It seemed like everything was working
against the UF w6men's basketball team dur-
ing the weekend, but the Gators didn't care.
Despite playing back-to-back games for the
second time in a week, being out of the coun-
try, and having not defeated a ranked team on
a neutral site since 1998, UF responded to all
those challenges.
The Gators defeated No. 21 Arizona State
65-60 on Saturday to claim the Junkanoo Jam
title in Freeport, Bahamas.
The win was the second against a ranked
team for UF in a seven-day span, having
already knocked off then-No. 22 FSU last
Sunday in Tallahassee.
The Gators needed a 67-56 victory against
Southern Illinois on Friday to advance to
Saturday's final.
Their win over the Sun Devils showed UF
coach Amanda Butler how far her team has
come this season.
"For our kids, it's just a confidence build-
er," she said. "It all builds up to what we do
when we get to conference play. We wanted
to challenge our team, and you get yourself
ready for conference play and, hopefully,
postseason play."
UF turned 12 Arizona State turnovers into
15 points to spark a 34-20 halftime lead. The
Sun Devils only scored 3 points off 12 turn-
overs
Guard Sha Brooks, who was named the
tournament's most valuable player, scored 25
points to lead the way to the upset after strug-
gling the day before.
"I knew Sha was ready to play," Butler


said.
"She did not play her best (Friday), and
she knew that. She's just one of those kids,
too, that the bigger the opponent, the bigger
the name, the bigger the game, she's going to
raise her game."
After building a 15-point lead late in the
game, the Gators had to hold off a furious Sun
Devils comeback to win by 5.
UF held Arizona State to 36 percent shoot-
ing by mixing up defenses, which helped the
Gators build their big lead.
"For us, it's an oppor-
tunity to improve, to have
that confidence of beating
someone that we're sure is
going to be in postseason,"
Butler said.
On Friday, UF went to
the locker room tied with
Brooks the Salukis at 31 at half-
time, but the Gators used a 10-2 run about
midway through the second half to extend
their lead and take control the rest of the way.
Steffi Sorensen, who was also voted to
the All-Tournament team along with Brooks,
scored a career-high 14 points against
Southern Illinois to help carry UF to Saturday.
Butler said she has talked with her team
about accomplishing some firsts fpr the pro-
gram or doing things that haven't been done
at UF in a while.
Winning this regular-season tournament
title on Saturday was a good start in doing so.
"That was what we talked about in the
locker room," Butler said. "This was our first
opportunity this season to win a champion-
ship, and they obviously rose to the occa-
sion."
A radio broadcast contributed to this report.


UF downs UNLV, will play


FAMU in NCAA first roundA


By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org -

With the conference title all
wrapped up, UF headed west to play
its final match of the regular season on
Saturday.
The Gators traveled to Las Vegas to
take on'UNLV (16-14) and came away
with a sweep (25-18, 25-23, 25-21) be-
hind freshman setter Kelly Murphy.
In only three sets, Murphy became
the first player in UF history to log
back-to-back triple-doubles.
On Wednesday, the first-year Gator
broke the career triple-double record
set by former setter Angie McGinnis
when she recorded her fifth such per-
formance against South Carolina.
Saturday, Murphy added to her re-
cord with a 13-kill, 17-assist, 15-dig line
- the 15 digs are a new career high.
Though Murphy's effort dearly set
the tone for her team, she wasn't the
only one who made an impact on the
offensive end.
UF (25-3) spread the ball around,
and freshmen Kristy Jaeckel and
Cassandra Anderson each added eight
kills.
"Tonight's match was a win where
we got production out of everyone,"
UF coach Mary Wise said. "The fact
that we had five players at 20-plus
swings shows that we gave ourselves


a lot of options tonight."
Sophomore Lauren Bledsoe contrib-
uted seven kills on just 11 swings, and
the Gators outhit the Rebels .230 to .129
as a team.
After disposing of UNLV, UF
headed back to Gainesville to watch
the NCAA Tournament selection show
on ESPNU on Sunday night.
The Gators will host opening-round
play, with their first
match coming against
Florida A&M (14-12)
on Friday night.
Volleyball "FAMU is a
Steam that is used
to winning and
is used to being in the
tournament," Wise said.
"We have run into
them often in the past and
know that every team that makes the
NCAA Tournament is coming off of a
great season."
During the regular season, the
Gators and Rattlers shared two com-
mon opponents: FSU and Long Beach
State.
UF swept; FSU on the road and
narrowly defeated Long Beach State
at home, while FAMU lost both non-
conference matches.
If the Gators defeat the Rattlers, they
play the winner of Florida International
and Colorado State, who downed UF
in Colorado earlier this season.

UF defenders hold strong when forced into tough field position

"embarrassing."
Now, it's the opponents who are


embarrassed. The Gators have only guys are just ready,"
allowed one 100-yard rusher this junior middle line-
season, and that was on Oct. 4 at backer Brandon
Arkansas as Michael Smith ran for Foo all Spikes said. "That's

"Guys went down, and other take. You got to be accountable to


the defense."
It was a collaborative effort, too,
as the Gators (11-1, 7-1 Southeastern
Conference) had nine different line-
men play. Even when Florida State
did score, it wasn't entirely the


defense's fault.
"That kickoff team was putting
our defense in real bad field posi-
tion," Meyer said. "To hold them to
a field goal, that's considered a plus
on defense."


Walker shines with extra playing time


HOOPS, from page 13

run and quieted any thoughts of a Kangaroos
upset.
After its hot start, Missouri-Kansas City
shot just 34 percent from the field in the second
half.
Alex Tyus continued to show he can be
more than serviceable in the post. The big man
scored a career-high 25 points (seven dunks)
and grabbed eight rebounds.
Point guard Nick Calathes, who estimated
75 friends and family members came to watch
him play, had 9 points in his Orlando home-
coming.
But Calathes also had five turnovers, which
led to more minutes for freshman Erving
Walker.
Walker had 13 points, nine assists and five


steals in his longest stretch of playing time (28
minutes) all season.
"Erving Walker played unbelievable,"
Donovan said. "He got in the lane and made
the game easy for Alex Tyus."
Every time Walker drove
down the lane, he seemed to
find an open man to dish the
ball off to.
"I feel like Erving can
develop a connection with
anyone the way he pen-
etrates and finds the open
Walker man," Tyus said.
Walker, who at times this
year has played too fast for his own good, is
learning how to take things slow.
"It's an adjustment for me, but I'm learning
pretty well," Walker said. "I'm trying to just
slow down and run the team."


EVAN, from page 13


has won just two games in the ACC
Tournament in three years.
The brightest spot for Florida State
during that span has been the baseball
team. The team had the most recent
No. 1 overall pick in the MLB Draft -
Buster Posey - and is the winningest
program in the NCAA since 2000.
Amid all that, the Seminoles failed to
bring home the grand prize. No NCAA
titles in baseball can call Tallahassee
home. FSU never even won the ACC
Tournament in the last four years.
So, fourth-year Gators, please real-
ize that the Seminoles are having a bad


four-year stretch. Lay off them. Stop
insulting this team mercilessly.
If we know anything at all about
sports, it's that the good teams that go
bad eventually return to prominence.
FSU can't possibly be down forever,
and the opposite is true for UE
When the Seminoles are beating
up on the Gators in 5, 10, or 15 years,
you're not going to want to hear it from
crazies in garnet and gold. But they're
going to remember this four-year span.
So be kind to them now. You have no
reason to hate Florida State, no reason
to rub in these victories.
You wouldn't be rubbing in four
straight wins against a program of
Kentucky's caliber, would you?

With rain hailing from the heavens, the No. 2 Gators avoided a slip-up and continued their dominating ways Saturday, blowing out the Seminoles 45-15 in front of 83,237 poncho-donning fans. UF's offensive output set a team record for points at the 58-year-old Doak S. Campbell Stadium, but the biggest question stemmed from a secondquarter fall. How is Percy Harvin? The junior playmaker drew a gasp from the UF faithful when he took a direct snap, ran left but could not get back to his feet. After a lengthy look from trainers on the field, he did his best to try and walk off, but the hobble could not be missed. Coach Urban Meyer called it an ankle sprain after the game Saturday and did not reveal much more Sunday evening, classifying Harvin as questionable for this week. The junior will not practice the next few days. "He's here today, and he's moving around a little bit," Meyer said Sunday evening. With or without Harvin, UF can finally turn its attention to a game that has gathered hype for weeks. No. 1 Alabama (12-0, 8-0 Southeastern Conference) will face No. 2 UF (11-1, 7-1 SEC) on Saturday in the first-ever meeting between top-two teams in the SEC Championship. This game has also essentially become a play-in for a spot in the BCS title game.

Jones said recruitment numbers increase every time the economy begins to decline. "We don't like a bad economy," he said. "But it's just the way things have played out." Other reasons for joining the military have stayed relatively the same, he said, such as a strong sense of patriotism, training in fields such as engineering and mechanical maintenance, and getting money for college. "We get alot of people who come to us who arelooking to getthoseloanspaid off,"hesaid. He also said a potential exit strategy to the Iraq war, proposed by President-elect Barack Obama, might be an enticing factor for young people to enlist. "We've got a lot more positive news coming out of Iraq," he said. "The situation there has certainly improved."

MONDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 3 AROUND GAINESVILLE Station name honors Parks By KIM LIBBY Alligator Contributing Writer The Sunday afternoon drizzle did not damage the spirits of the Rosa Parks Quiet Courage Committee members as they saw their dedication pay off. Members of the committee gathered with about 100 others to rename the Regional Transit System Downtown Station. It will now be called the Rosa Parks Regional Transit System Downtown Station in honor of the mother of the modem-day civil rights movement. "In 2008, we can get on buses here and sit anywhere we want to," the Rev. Milford Lewis Griner told the crowd. "This event just shows that in the future, nobody will stop us and turn us around from any new challenges." Griner started the committee three years ago to honor Parks and to continue her legacy, member Harriet Ludwig said. The group is known for giving out the Quiet Courage award to people who have advanced civil rights locally. "This event just shows that in the future, nobody will stop us and turn us around from any new challenges." the Rev. Milford Lewis Griner Rosa Parks Quiet Courage Committee founder After hearing a suggestion from former city commission candidate Armando Grundy, Griner proposed renaming the station to the Gainesville City Commission on Feb. 11. The commission unanimously approved the idea. The dedication followed a service at Mt. Carmel Baptist Church. Afterward, three buses with displays reading "'Rosa Parks Freedom Ride" shuttled people to the bus depot in a procession following the lead of police cars with lights and sirens. City Manager Russ Blackburn told the crowd he was pleased and proud to have the station renamed. He said it was appropriate given Gainesville's civil rights history. He called the ceremony a testament to Rosa Parks, the committee and the work that made the name change happen. A new bronze plaque at the bus station near Southeast Depot Avenue was covered in traditional African kente cloth. Committee member NkWanda Jah said they used the cloth because the people of the committee and church will never forget their origins. After unveiling the plaque, spectators looked at it, touched it and sang with joy. The event stressed the importance of teaching about Parks' legacy to church youth, Jah said. Sunday rain keeps fire, fighters at bay Weather conditions forced crews to stop fighting a 300-acre fire in eastern Alachua County after noon Sunday, but the rain probably won't stop the blaze. The Levy Prairie fire, north of Hawthorne, has been contained since shortly after being reported at about 5 p.m. Friday, said Ludie Bond, spokeswoman with the State Division of Forestry. Workers from the State Division of Forestry, along with Putnam County Fire Department and local volunteer departments, plowed ditches to keep the fire from spreading, Bond said. Bond said she thinks the fire was man-made because there was no stormy weather Friday for lightning to start it. Although the fire in the swampy hammock land saw a lot of rain on Sunday, the area is so large that not all of it received heavy rainfall, she said. Local This is the largNews est fire of the winter season, which started in October. A bum ban was instituted on Tuesday prohibiting homeowners from burning yard debris, Bond said. Because the burn ban can only be in effect for a week at a time, the Alachua County Commission will decide this week whether to keep the ban in place. -KATIE EMMETS .Are you living on campus and thinking about living on campus next year? .Are you living on campus and thinking about living off campus? .Are you living off campus and thinking about moving?

4, ALLIGATOR E MONDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2008 Florida teen discovers possible colon cancer cure N KYLE JONES PRESENTED FINDINGS IN LAST YEAR'S SCIENCE FAIR. By MARGARET CUNNINGHAM Alligator Contributing Writer Although Kyle Jones of The Villages Charter High School may look like your av-, erage teenager, this soft-spoken 17-year-old might have found a cure for colon cancer. For his science project last fall, Jones tested the effects of conjugated linoleic acid, known as CLA, an amino acid found mostly in meat and dairy products, on human colon cancer at M.D. Anderson Cancer Cenfer in Orlando. His results showed that up to 90 percent of the colon cancer cells were killed within three days, indicating that the chemical properties of CLA could possibly be used as an effective treatment for colon cancer. "It surprised me mainly how devastating it was to the cancer cells," he said. Jones has not continued his research since the initial project was completed, but researchers at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center are conducting more extensive studies on CLA as well as other potential cancer therapeutics. Jones said it would take several years before any sufficient results are obtained. At the school science fair in January and regional science fair in February he won first place overall. At the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in May, he won second place from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office Society for innovative projects that could be translated into products that could benefit society. Jones said he is interested in all academic subjects but particularly science because of the potential for discovery. Jones' interest in science has carried over since his childhood. "Oh, goodness," he said, laughing, "As a kid, I used to go outside and explore nature, but I don't do that anymore. It's too hot." Joe After his success in May, Jones spent his summer at the UF Student Science Training Program, which allows high school students to work personally with UF faculty on original research projects. For seven weeks, Jones worked with fac-Ir ulty professor Lung-Ji Chang and conducted research at UF to discover a way to produce stem cells without the controversial use of embryos. Jones's top college choices include Columbia, Harvard and Johns Hopkins. He wants to major in biochemistry and minor in something other than science, like history or Spanish. He said he would like to be a medical researcher as well as a doctor or an adjunct professor. Jones wants to venture to New York, Massachusetts, California or Maryland for the best research opportunities. "I have always been very interested in research, and when I find a problem, I try to find a way to solve it," he said. "I am 100 percent dedicated to finding a cure for cancer in the near future."

MONDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 5 Florida-FSU rivalry sparks local food drive donations 0 TALLAHASSEE BEAT GAINESVILLE IN THE CONTEST. By CODY BOND Alligator Contributing Writer In a last-ditch effort to support local food pantries this Thanksgiving, the Make a Play Foundation developed a sure-fire plan to get people involved: exploiting a heated college rivalry. The organization's inaugural Thanksgiving Rivals Challenge: Food Fight ended Friday. Tallahassee won the head-to-head food drive competition against Gainesville. Whether it was goodwill or team spirit, Gator and Seminole fans donated about 22,000 pounds of non-perishable food items at Publix stores in each city, said Alecia Pynn, the foundation's executive director. Although Tallahassee won the competition,. Gainesville participants still managed to donate almost 7,000 pounds of canned goods and nearly $1,200 in a little more than a week, Pynn said. All donations will remain in their respective cities, she said. Deborah Talbot, development coordinator for the Bread of the Mighty Food Bank, which the competition benefited, said a year of inflated food prices and national economic crises has taken a toll on local charities. By the end of October, the food bank's shelves were nearly empty. But a surge of donations in November made it possible to send 400 holiday food boxes to needy families in Alachua County Talbot said. LOCaI Part of that surge News came from UF's second annual Chomp Out Hunger food drive, which collected 800 pounds of canned goods from competing student organizations between Nov. 17 and Nov. 21. The Student Finance Group donated the most with 263 pounds, said Matt Kaufmann and Rishabh Das, the food drive's coordinators. Chomp Out Hunger was sponsored by Students in Free Enterprise and counted toward UF's total in the Make a Play Foundation's Food Fight. Both organizations said they plan to hold the competition again next year. UF Army ROTC course has seen 40 percent enrollment increase MILITARY, from page 1 enlistment since the last fiscal year, which ended in October 2007. Local ROTC programs have seen a huge increase in numbers, but one official said he doesn't think it's the poor economy. Lt. Col. Michael Rosamond, professor of military science for the UF Army ROTC, said the program has seen a 40 percent increase in students joining the class; which he attributes to publicity about the class and word of mouth. Rosamond said the reason so many have joined the class couldn't be the economy because the increase was noticed in August, before the economic downturn. "Everyone thinks that once the economy goes bad, people flock to the military," he said. "It has nothing to do with the economy. "Everyone thinks that once the economy goes bad, people flock to the military." Lt. Col. Michael Rosamond professor of military science One student said money is the main reason he enlisted. Santa Fe College nursing student John Palmer, 18, said he had never considered joining the military until he turned 18 and had to face monetary problems. Palmer said many of his friends are also enlisting so the military can pay for school and give them jobs. He said he wants to finish his degree as soon as he is done serving in the Air Force, but first, he needs the service for the money. "It's a lack of choices," Palmer said.

6, ALLIGATOR N MONDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2008 Editorial Science Fair Local teen blinds Ed Board with science A 17-year-old from The Villages recently found a potental cure for cancer while doing a science project for chool. Seriously. The Editorial Board has never claimed to be a group of science whizzes. In fact, we have often reiterated just how onedimensional we are when it comes to school. Give us words, limited space and a deadline -add any other variables and we're screwed. We are in absolute awe that a teenager has happened upon a specific amino acid able to kill a significant amount of colon cancer cells (it killed up to 90 percent of the cancerous cells in the sample). This 21st-century Doogie Howser puts our old science projects to shame, but we are absolutely not embarrassed. We were always the unenthusiastic kids with the lamest science projects. We didn't actually care which brand of paper towel absorbed the most liquid; we just didn't care enough to come up with a project idea that might actually serve a purpose. We think what this young man did is incredible. During the summer, he worked with a UF professor on a project concerning stem cells -they were searching for alternatives to using the cells, and no embryos were involved. The amino acid used in the project is being studied by the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Orlando to determine how effective it could be as a cancer therapeutic, but it may take years to obtain significant findings. In the meantime, we hope this kid's research is as groundbreaking as it seems to be, and we wish him the best of luck. Black-eyed Friday there is any lesson to be learned from our parents and grandparents, it's that we shouldn't trample WalMart greeters to death the day after Thanksgiving. Black Friday supposedly gets its name from the postTurkey Day sales spike that moves many businesses into the profit zone. We respectfully disagree. How many minimum wage workers and pregnant women need to get squashed in the name of PlayStation 3 before we realize how utterly stupid it is to shop on Black Friday? If your snot-nosed little tot doesn't get the useless piece of plastic he wants, is he really going to hate you forever? We've been in those bratty little shoes before; if we didn't get the one toy we really wanted, then we just borrowed it from one of our butt-hole friends who did. In the end it didn't matter because we probably had more fun with their Nintendo 64 than they did. We also don't understand the allure of lining up outside of Toys "R" Us before dawn to ensure you won't fail as a parent. Hasn't anyone heard of the Internet? Wal-Mart certainly knows what the Internet is, which is why the company lists all the products it has for sale on its Web site. The best part is you can pre-order them so you can sleep in after you stuff your face full of pumpkin pie. The Editorial Board suggests that our generation learn from the wake-up-before-dawn-to-shop mistakes of our parents, and pre-order gifts on the Internet. That way no one will get trampled, and your primary parenting flaw will be a lack of planning, not a brittle spine. 4he idpe-det florida Jessica DaSilva Adam Wynn EDITOR OPINIONS EDITOR Hilary Lehman, Ken Schwencke MANAGING EDITORS The Alligator encourages comments from readers.

Opinions ALLIGATOR www.alligator.org/opinion LL L P01 n pJ e~ Column Obama choosing C egardless of whether you were elated, irritated, or apathetic, you can agree that this election was epic. With the drama of the Republican primaries and President-elect Barack Obama's crushing electoral victory, this election had something for everybody and was electrifying to watch. As the U.S. and the world turn their collective attention to issues such as the slumping global economy and worldwide terrorist attacks, they are putting the most crucial part of the transition from President George W. Bush to Obama on the back burner: the appointment of White House staff and Cabinet positions. The real legwork of any administration comes in these appointments. President Ronald Reagan was noted for his effective use of White House advisers and staff positions, while President Abraham Lincoln surrounded himself with rivals and political outsiders. So far, Obama has been extremely effective across the board with his appointments. To begin, Obama announced Illinois Rep. Rahm Emmanuel as his choice for White House chief of staff. A cutthroat and experienced politician, Emmanuel will not only be able to rally the legislative branch to work effectively with an Obama administration, but he has political experience as a U.S. representative and is a former adviser to President Bill Clinton. When it comes to national defense, Obama has decided to shake things up by not changing anything. Obama is sticking with Bush-appointed Defense Secretary Robert Gates. Not only does this show that Obama is willing to cross the aisle, it also shows he believes in Gates' handling of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Regarding the economic crisis, Timothy Geithner, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, will cabinet, staff wisely lead the recovery team as he has been officially nominated treasury secretary. Politicians across the spectrum have acknowledged Geithner for his experience and steady hand. Kyle Robisch New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson Speaking Out is reported to have accepted the position of commerce secretary, a position where Richardson's experience would be hard to rival. The secretary of state office will be filled by another high-profile name. Obama and his top presidential primary rival, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, have reached an agreement to have Clinton serve as the country's international ambassador, or secretary of state. Although she is perceived as more hawkish than Obama, Clinton's international stature should help restore America's goodwill and shore up relations with key allies around the world. The only potential weak link in Obama's appointments lies with Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano for the Department of Homeland Security director. Although Napolitano has law enforcement experience as a state attorney general, she has little counter-terrorism experience. Even though his staff choices have been solid thus far, Obama will need more than the right personnel to follow through on his guarantee of change. If he combines the right people with the right policy choices, Obama just might get us out of the red. On the whole, Obama's Cabinet and White House staff should increase the effectiveness of his administration as he navigates the U.S. through a hostile world and a devastating financial crisis.

orts MONDAY, DECEMBER 1 2008 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org UF DEFENSE Depleted D-line no problem as Gators stuff 'Noles I UF silences FSU's runners UF linebackers Brandon Hicks (left) and Brandon Spikes (center) take down FSU running back Antone Smith during the Gators' 45-15 win against the Seminoles in Doak Campbell Stadium on Saturday. By BRIAN STEELE Alligator Staff Writer bsteele@alligator.org TALLAHASSEE -That depleted defensive line wasn't such a big problem after all. With an MCL injury to freshman Matt Patchan, sophomore Brandon Antwine leaving the game with a knee injury and nose guard Lawrence Marsh (MCL sprain) hobbled, Florida State had good reason to hope its 190.2 rushing yards per game could pummel the Gators. The Seminoles' ground attack, second in the Atlantic Coast Conference, could control the clock, and, maybe, have a shot against a team that has defeated its opponents by an average of 41 points the past seven games. Not exactly. UF's defense showed once again it is a transformed unit from a year ago as it stuffed the Seminoles' ground game for just 102 yards in the Gators' 45-15 romp Saturday afternoon at Doak S. Campbell Stadium. While FSU freshman running back Jermaine Thomas did get into the end zone on a 4-yard skip with 7:43 left in the third quarter, it was the Seminoles' first rushing touchdown in the last 117 minutes of play in this rivalry series. "We have a pretty good amount of depth on the D-line," sophomore defensive lineman Justin Trattou said. "We didn't skip a beat." However you want to put it, UF's defense was on top of its game Saturday The Seminoles had 527 yards on the ground in their last three wins, all conference games. "FSU, the last several weeks, have been punching numbers up pretty good," UF coach Urban Meyer said. Those numbers were halted by a group of players who have had their pride kick in. Last season, SEE DEFENSE, PAGE 16 Take pity on Seminoles seniors TALLAHASSEE I f you're a fourth-year senior and a UF sports fan, you better thank your parents for conceiving you at the right time. In your three-and-a-half years -in Gainesville, you've seen two national championships in men's basketball. You've seen one national championship and one Southeastern Conference Championship in football. You might have another one of each very soon. The Gators are 11-1 in rivalry games in your time here, or, as Urban Meyer corrected a reporter Saturday, 12-1 if you include the Miami win earlier this season. "But who's counting?" Meyer joked. For that matter, you've never known anyone but Meyer as your football coach. You've seen the Gators volleyball team win its 15th, 16th, 17th and 18th straight Southeastern Conference Championships. And you've seen a softball team come within one game of a championship series. You might see.them get there this year. Yes, you're a privileged group, you fourth-year seniors. But have you ever once stopped to think of the other guy? The poor, defenseless, fourth-year Seminole? After reading this laundry list of their failures, maybe you should lighten up on your brethren from the school out west. Though things started out great for those guys with an Atlantic Coast Conference Championship in 2005, it was all downhill from there. The Seminoles football team has lost five straight games to the Gators. FSU has Evan Drexler lost three of four The Drex Factor to Clemson. The edrexler@alligator.org Seminoles haven't made the ACC Championship Game since 2005 and have squeezed two six-loss seasons in between two four-loss years. They lost a bowl game to KentuckyThe men's basketball team hasn't made the NCAA Tournament in the current fourth-year seniors' time in Tallahassee. In fact, men's basketball at FSU hasn't known the NCAA postseason since 1998. FSU SEE EVAN, PAGE 16 Parsons finally finds shot By MIKE DIFERDINANDO Alligator Staff Writer mdiferdinando@aligator.org ORLANDO -After an early season full of glass and iron, Chandler Parsons finally found some nylon. Parsons shot through his frustration to score 17 points in No. 17 UF's (5-1) 86-65 win against Missouri-Kansas City (3-5) on Sunday during the Florida Hospital Gator Jam at Amway Arena. The Casselberry native, who was replaced in the starting lineup for the second consecutive game by freshman Allan Chaney, rediscovered his touch in front of an arena full of family and friends. "A lot of times when a player feels like his back is'against the wall, you get to the point where you just go back to the most basic things," UF coach Billy Donovan said. "Chandler went out there and decided to be aggressive and just play." Parsons was averaging 6 points per game and shooting just 35 percent from the field before breaking out against the Kangaroos. "I'm a confident shooter. I wasn't worried about them falling," Parsons said. Even though Parsons finally got his shooting Men's on track, the game was far from the easy win Basketball UF hoped for when the game was scheduled. With just under five minutes left in the first half, Missouri-Kansas City guard Dane Brumagin (14 points in the half) helped shoot his team to a 32-29 lead, but the Gators quickly dosed the door with an 11-0 run to end the half. The Gators' hot shooting continued in the second.

Tight end Aaron Hernandez had one of his '#Dome showdown. This against a Crimson Tide team that steamrolled Auburn 36-0 at home on Saturday to finish a perfect regular season. Alabama coach Nick Saban played sly when asked if he would use his team's "underdog" status as fuel this week. "(UF) certainly deserves all the accolades that their team gets," Saban said. "We have enough motivatioh in terms of the opportunity that we have and what's out there for our team." But Saturday was one final test for UF against another overmatched opponent. Quarterback Tim Tebow threw for 185 yards and three touchdowns and ran for 80 yards and another score in one of his last performances to be seen by Heisman voters. The junior's demeanor changed when FSU fans cheered after Harvin's injury. "That was one of the first times I've seen practically the whole stadium cheer when Percy got hurt," said Tebow, who ran it in from 4 yards out two plays later. "I didn't think that showed very good sportsmanship. So that kind of irritated me. And I really told coach to just give me the ball, because I really wanted to hit somebody extremely hard on the next play" The pregame downpour led Meyer to think about changing the offensive game plan. He joked that he "probably would've run (Tebow) 50 times."

And this was a game that meant a little extra to the UF family. Players and coaches wore sweatbands inscribed with the initials "R.W." to Football honor Rob Webster, stepfather of twins Mike and Maurkice Pouncey. Webster had to have his right leg amputated after a work-related accident in Lakeland, the twins' hometown. They rushed horie Monday after learning of the incident before returning to practice on Wednesday at Webster's request. "It was sad," Mike Pouncey said. "I didn't get to talk to him the first day because they had him knocked out on pain medicine. The next day, he woke up, and he said he wanted us to live the dream that he always wanted to have. So we're going out and playing our best so we can make it for him." Pouncey said Webster plans to do whatever necessary to make it to Atlanta for next week's collision of No. 1 and No. 2. After all, this week is the chance to realize an offseason's worth of goals, and Meyer knows it. "That's why we get up, that's why we shave, that's why we brush our teeth, that's why we hug our kids -to go to that dome."

We have a feeling he'll wind up on top when it's all said and done. Tebow continued to dominate the opposing defense this week, torchingthe Seminoles for three passing touchdowns and even leading a two-minute drill for a touchdown.

Both times, he was unbelievably wide open. The first time, he started the play looking like he was going to block, and the second time, he just beat the coverage.

MONDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2008 E ALLIGATOR, 15 UF WOMEN'S BASKETBALL Gators take Junkanoo title By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC Alligator Writer cyazbec@aliigator.org It seemed like everything was working against the UF women's basketball team during the weekend, but the Gators didn't care. Despite playing back-to-back games for the second time in a week, being out of the country, and having not defeated a ranked team on a neutral site since 1998, UF responded to all those challenges. The Gators defeated No. 21 Arizona State 65-60 on Saturday to claim the Junkanoo Jam title in Freeport, Bahamas. The win was the second against a ranked team for UF in a seven-day span, having already knocked off then-No. 22 FSU last Sunday in Tallahassee. The Gators needed a 67-56 victory against Southern Illinois on Friday to advance to Saturday's final. Their win over the Sun Devils showed UF coach Amanda Butler how far her team has come this season. "For our kids, it's just a confidence builder," she said. "It all builds up to what we do when we get to conference play. We wanted to challenge our team, and you get yourself ready for conference play and, hopefully, postseason play." UF turned 12 Arizona State turnovers into 15 points to spark a 34-20 halftime lead. The Sun Devils only scored 3 points off 12 turnovers Guard Sha Brooks, who was named the tournament's most valuable player, scored 25 points to lead the way to the upset after struggling the day before. "I knew Sha was ready to play," Butler said. "She did not play her best (Friday), and she knew that. She's just one of those kids, too, that the bigger the opponent, the bigger the name, the bigger the game, she's going to raise her game." After building a 15-point lead late in the game, the Gators had to hold off a furious Sun Devils comeback to win by 5. UF held Arizona State to 36 percent shooting by mixing up defenses, which helped the Gators build their big lead. "For us, it's an opportunity to improve, to have that confidence of beating someone that we're sure is going to be in postseason," Butler said. On Friday, UF went to the locker room tied with Brooks the Salukis at 31 at halftime, but the Gators used a 10-2 run about midway through the second half to extend their lead and take control the rest of the way. Steffi Sorensen, who was also voted to the All-Tournament team along with Brooks, scored a career-high 14 points against Southern Illinois to help carry UF to Saturday. Butler said she has talked with her team about accomplishing some firsts for the program or doing things that haven't been done at UF in a while. Winning this regular-season tournament title on Saturday was a good start in doing so. "That was what we talked about in the locker room," Butler said. "This was our first opportunity this season to win a championship, and they obviously rose to the occasion." A radio broadcast contributed to this report. UF downs UNLV, will play FAMU in NCAA first roundBy KYLE MAISTRI Alligator Writer kmaistri@aiiigator.org With the conference title all wrapped up, UF headed west to play its final match of the regular season on Saturday The Gators traveled to Las Vegas to take onUNLV (16-14) and came away with a sweep (25-18, 25-23, 25-21) behind freshman setter Kelly Murphy. In only three sets, Murphy became the first player in UF history to log back-to-back triple-doubles. On Wednesday, the first-year Gator broke the career triple-double record set by former setter Angie McGinnis when she recorded her fifth such performance against South Carolina. Saturday, Murphy added to her record with a 13-kill, 17-assist, 15-dig line -the 15 digs are a new career high. Though Murphy's effort clearly set the tone for her team, she wasn't the only one who made an impact on the offensive end. UF (25-3) spread the ball around, and freshmen Kristy Jaeckel and Cassandra Anderson each -added eight kills. "Tonight's match was a win where we got production out of everyone," UF coach Mary Wise said. "The fact that we had five players at 20-plus swings shows that we gave ourselves a lot of options tonight." Sophomore Lauren Bledsoe contributed seven kills on just 11 swings, and the Gators outhit the Rebels .230 to .129 as a team. After disposing of UNLV, UF headed back to Gainesville to watchthe NCAA Tournament selection show on ESPNU on Sunday night. The Gators will host opening-round play, with their first match coming against Florida A&M (14-12) on Friday night. "FAMU is a team that is used to winning and is used to being in the tournament," Wise said. "We have run into them often in the past and know that every team that makes the NCAA Tournament is coming off of a great season." During the regular season, the Gators and Rattlers shared two common opponents: FSU and Long Beach State. UF swept, FSU on the road and narrowly defeated Long Beach State at home, while FAMU lost both nonconference matches. If the Gators defeat the Rattlers, they play the winner of Florida International and Colorado State, who downed UF in Colorado earlier this season.

16, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2008 UF defenders hold strong when forced into tough field position DEFENSE, from page 13 -49 several players called their defense "embarrassing." Now, it's the opponents who are embarrassed. The Gators have only guys are just ready," allowed one 100-yard rusher this junior middle lineseason, and that was on Oct. 4 at backer Brandon Arkansas as Michael Smith ran for Fo ail Spikes said. "That's 133 yards. UF still won 38-7. what it's going to "Guys went down, and other take. You got to be accountable to the defense." It was a collaborative effort, too, as the Gators (11-1, 7-1 Southeastern Conference) had nine different linemen play. Even when Florida State did score, it wasn't entirely the -defense's fault. "That kickoff team was putting our defense in real bad field position," Meyer said. "To hold them to a field goal, that's considered a plus on defense." Walker shines with extra playing time H OOPS, from page 13 steals in his longest stretch of playing time (28 minutes) all season. "Erving Walker played unbelievable," Donovan said. "He got in the lane and made run and quieted any thoughts of a Kangaroos upset. After its hot start, Missouri-Kansas City shot just 34 percent from the field in the second half. Alex Tyus continued to show he can be more than serviceable in the post. The big man scored a career-high 25 points (seven dunks) and grabbed eight rebounds. Point guard Nick Calathes, who estimated 75 friends and family members came to watch him play, had 9 points in his Orlando homecoming. But Calathes also had five turnovers, which led to more minutes for freshman Erving Walker. Walker had 13 points, nine assists and five the game easy for Alex Tyus." Every time Walker drove down the lane, he seemed to find an open man to dish the ball off to. "I feel like Erving can develop a connection with anyone the way he penetrates and finds the open walker man," Tyus said. Walker, who at times this year has played too fast for his own good, is learning how to take things slow. "It's an adjustment for me, but I'm learning pretty well," Walker said. "I'm trying to just slow down and run the team." EVAN, from page 13 has won just two games in the ACC Tournament in three years. The brightest spot for Florida State during that span has been the baseball team. The team had the most recent No. 1 overall pick in the MLB Draft Buster Posey -and is the winningest program in the NCAA since 2000. Amid allthat, the Seminoles failed to bring home the grand prize. No NCAA titles in baseball can call Tallahassee home. FSU never even won the ACC Tournament in the last four years. So, fourth-year Gators, please realize that the Seminoles are having a bad four-year stretch. Lay off them. Stop insulting this team mercilessly. If we know anything at all about sports, it's that the good teams that go bad eventually return to prominence. FSU can't possibly be down forever, and the opposite is true for U. When the Seminoles are beating up on the Gators in 5, 10, or 15 years, you're not going to want to hear it from crazies. m garnet and gold. But they're going to remember this four-year span. So be kind to them now. You have no reason to hate Florida State, no reason to rub in these victories. You wouldn't be rubbing in four straight wins against a program of Kentucky's caliber, would you?
