An ad hoc committee was formed
this Summer to submit student body

"Any way we change the election

He said his dilemma stemmed from his

Before I commit to anything, I need

The most ignored stories of 1997
Since 1997 is about to end, I thought
that I would tackle some of the more
important stories that went unnoticed.
First was the death of Mobutu Sese
Seko, overshadowed by the death of
Princess Diana.
Mobutu restored the name of Zaire to
the country he presided over. Mobutu,
who sometimes was referred to as "the
man who wears that funny hat, was the
leader of Zaire for more than 30 years.
I really don't know too much about him.
I just like saying Mobutu.
Second, when Pope John Paul II vis visited
ited visited the United States, he got more press
than the OJ. Simpson case. But how
many of us knew that the great Dalai
Lama visited Chicago?
The Dalai Lama, or Tenzin Gyatso to
his friends, is the supreme temporal
religious head of Tibet. He has won the
Nobel Peace Prize, the Albert Schweitzer
Humanitarian Award and the Freedom
Award U.S.A.
But on his visit to Chicago, he didn't
even sell out Soldier Field. Even the
Rolling Stones show sold out there. I
think we need to get our priorities
straight.

Groups debate existence

They stood in clumps underneath the
high Gothic roof of University Auditorium.
They mingled among each other, talking
about the existence of God, the nature of
the universe, and other such large questions.
On Wednesday night, the Humanistic
Atheistic Student Association co-spon co-sponsored
sored co-sponsored a debate with Campus Crusade for
Christ regarding the existence of God.
"The question of God's existence is of
supreme importance," said Richard Howe,
an associate professor of philosophy and
apologetics at South Evangelical Seminary
in Charlotte, N.C.
Howe contended that God exists for
many philosophical and logical reasons.
He pointed to constancy, order and com complexity

that the universe was created by random
chance by stating how minimal the odds
were for this to happen.
"This wasn't by random forces, it was
placed there by intelligence," Howe said.
Dan Barker, public relations director for
Freedom From Religion Foundation, ar argued
gued argued from the atheist perspective.
"Atheism is not a denial of a God, but
rather a lack of belief," Barker said.

He presented the case of the Romans and
Greeks who had several gods. He then ar argued
gued argued that over time, these gods became
outdated because of changes in popular will.
Barker challenged Howe for concrete
evidence on the existence of God. He also
presented paradoxes against the existence
of God. For example, he said because God
supposedly is infinite and must have a
concept of himse f, he spends all his time
considering himself.
After opening statements, the debate
became muddled as both sides tried to win
their opponents' points without conceding
any of their own.
Barker said students should attend these
kind of events if they are interested in
re-examining their own beliefs.
"It provides a good, rational basis for
rejecting a belief in God," Barker said.
Howe said students should read argu arguments

TJ. Morrisseys to close

Tuesday that his night club

and with the increasing compe competition

get out of the business.
'There are so many clubs
downtown that it's hard to be
profitable,' Morrissey said.
TJ.'s was opened in 1990 by
Morrissey, a Villanova Univer University
sity University student who came to
Gainesville to run track and
study engineering atLJF. He has
been the sole owner of the
establishment since it opened.
'I built everything in (the

'The older crowd thought it

'Whatever reputation I tried to

Morrissey's speculations.
'There's a lot of freshmen

said. 'l've outgrown the party

Cowart added that he prefers

tends to be more mature.

supportive of Winnie Madikizela-Man Madikizela-Mandeia's
deia's Madikizela-Mandeia's plight than those in South Africa,
said native South African Fiona Barnes,
who teaches at UF's Center for Written
and Oral Communications.
Although Barnes has lived in this
country for 14 years, she has closely
followed the case through South African
newspapers on the Internet.
The case has rocked the country
back on its heels," said Barnes about the
impact of the case on South Africans.
Madikizela-Mandela testified Thurs Thursday
day Thursday in Johannesburg at a Truth and
Reconciliation Commission hearing.
The commission is investigating a
decade of accusations of human
rights abuses allegedly committed by
Madikizela-Mandela during apart apartheid.

heid. apartheid. She is accused of ordering the
1989 killing of a 14-year-oldboy, along
with other allegations of torture and
murder.
Madikizela-Mandela gave 10 hours of
testimony during last week's trial and
told families of murder victims she was
sorry for their pain. Yet, she accepted
no direct responsibility.
"There is so much evidence being
brought against her. So many different
groups (in South Africa) are seeking
power and representation," Barnes said.
"And Nelson Mandela sees her as a
threat to the unity of the party politics.
They'd all like her silenced."
Barnes said Nobel Prize winner Des Desmond
mond Desmond Tutu, chairman of the Truth and
Reconciliation Commission, has offered
amnesty to anyone who confesses to
crimes committed during apartheid.
Tutu is reported to have implored

Madikizela-Mandela to "please, please,
please, please, please tell the truth,"
Barnes said.
I don't see her case in simplistic
terms," Barnes said. "But my gut reaction
is that I believe she's guilty I wish I
didn't."
Kafui Awuma, who was bom in Ghana
and is a senior biological scientist in
UF's Department of Soil and Water Sci Science,
ence, Science, also feels there may be some truth
to the allegations.
"Although I find the charges difficult
to believe, my inclination would be to
believe that she did some of it," Awuma
said.
Awuma said he feels he is part of a
minority of Africans who think she may
have committed the crimes.
He said he would be surprised if other
black Africans voiced the same senti sentiments

they believe the allegations are part of
a big conspiracy.
"Madikizela-Mandela became a vir virtual
tual virtual goddess in Soweto and she became
a god to herself," Awuma said. She may
have done some of these things to
create fear and to intimidate some of
her political opponents."
Like Bames, Awuma feels that a lot of
people would benefit if Madikizela-
Mandela was removed from the stage.
Wanja Njoka, a native Kenyan and
senior in UFs College of Journalism and
Communications, said Madikizela-Man Madikizela-Mandela
dela Madikizela-Mandela fought harder against apartheid
than Nelson Mandela because he could
not fight while imprisoned.
She is the biggest fighter," Njoka said.
If Madikizela- Mandela had not fought
against apartheid and fought for Man Mandela's
dela's Mandela's freedom, he would still be locked
up, she said.

Whew! The end finally is near.
Stop. Take a deep breath. We here at the Alligator sympa sympathize
thize sympathize with your plight. And just for you, we've compiled this
special last day of class edition of ...
Darts & Laurels
Hmmm. It was hard to decide where to begin. After all, this
semester was speckled with all kinds of praiseworthy people
and just downright stupid stunts.
But we thought the commuters who never took advantage
of the extra parking spaces reserved for car poolers is a good
place to start. UF parking patrollers reserved about 150 spaces
in the commuter parking lot on North-South Drive for cars
carrying three or more people.
But for weeks, the lot remained empty until patrollers
opened the lot up to all commuters at 10 a.m. Hey guys, you
had your chance to an easy space, and you blew it. That
deserves nothing short of a thanks-for-making-on-campus thanks-for-making-on-campusparking-hell-for-all-of-us
parking-hell-for-all-of-us thanks-for-making-on-campusparking-hell-for-all-of-us DART.
When the Florida Student Association announced that it
would support the state's proposed SSO technology fee, it
might have looked like they went soft too. Not at all.
Yes, the SSO fee paid once a semester would sting. But
the FSA was quick to add to its endorsement that it would
not support the fee if it were coupled with a tuition increase.
And here's why we agree:
State officials have promised that if the SSO fee were to be
approved which probably will happen after the FSA and
Board of Regents endorsement it would be allocated by
committees set up at each of the state's universities. Those
committees would allocate funds only at their own campuses.
Tuition, however, is allocated by faceless lawmakers in
Tallahassee who don't necessarily channel that money back
into the State University System.
In short, students would have control over the technology
fee's allocation but not over tuition funds allocation. By taking
a stand, the FSA has given the issue direction. So to FSA
officials, we send a you-go-for-using-your-leverage-in-Talla you-go-for-using-your-leverage-in-Tallahassee
hassee you-go-for-using-your-leverage-in-Tallahassee LAUREL.
A handful of students right here at UF were able to do the
same. By collectively pressuring Student Senate, students were
able to shoot down a ploy that would have put key political
players right where Florida Blue Key leaders wanted them.
The proposal was to eliminate dormitory requirements for
senators living on campus. But thanks to the Inter-Residence
Hall Association and all the students who followed suit, the
reapportionment bill was shot down in senate. To those
students, we send one simple thanks-guys LAUREL.
And of course, no thanks to those in charge of Blue Key.
Students are paying much more than they need to for concerts
sponsored by Student Government Productions, not that there
have been many concerts anyway. The problems that have
plagued SGP this semester have made it painfully clear that
Blue Key's reliance on Greeks just doesn't work.
No, it wasn't that Blue Key appointed SGP's director, Michael
Cabom inexperienced as he was because he was Greek.
They appointed him because Blue Key has become so insti institutionalized
tutionalized institutionalized and narrow-minded that they just didn't have
anyone else to consider.
It's a vicious circle. Non-Greeks don't apply because the
positions always go to Greeks. But the positions always go to
Greeks because no non-Greeks apply. So to Florida Blue Key
members, we send a break-the-mold-and-give-non-Greeks-a break-the-mold-and-give-non-Greeks-a-reason-to-apply-for-such-positions

Finals week promises to be kept

The old, wrinkled man walks through the
wind-swept park. His white hair blowing in the
wind. Orange and red leaves swirl all around
him. Brown grass, once brilliant with life, lies
dormant on the ground below.
As he walks through the once green, lush
area, he remembers the time of his youth. In
the not-so-distant past, he was a young man
- alive with the world. But now Father Time
has taken him to the end of his path. He finds
a bench, sits and waits. Not much time left.
No man, I'm not talking about UF President
John Lombardi cruising the campus, I am
talking about Old Man Time himself.
The end of the semester. As everything else,
all things must come to an end. And with the
conclusion of a long semester, I and many
others will look back and wonder what could
be done to improve on the past.
As I reflect on the past 16 weeks of school,
I find that I regret several things. And it is
with this deep reflection that I look to the
future with great promise.
On the eve of the new year, most of us
make proclamations that we hope will set us
apart from the person we were, or were not,
last year.
I, too, am starting a new tradition this year
but am making those statements earlier on
the eve of final exams.
Below are several things that will make
Spring semester go along a little smoother.
You should try a few of them for yourself.
They may work.

Debate on God's
existence pointless
Editor: A recent CNN poll
confirmed that 95 percent of
Americans believe in God,
but the debate last night at
University Auditorium left
unresolved the question,
'Does God exist?"
At the helm for Satan was
a former minister turned
atheist, and for God, a repre representative

Crusade for Christ.
Both were asked to provide

This is not so hard. Gone are the days of
endless football pre- and postparties and lost
weekends due to the consumption of too
much fun. Thank God the season is over.
2. 1 promise to increase my study habits and
study time in a more positive manner. This
should be easy for several reasons: A) My

grades are terrible; and B) if I
do not study I will end up at
FSU. Grades man, grades.

3. I promise to take better care of myself and
workout on a more consistent basis.
This will not be that hard to achieve as well.
I'm starting to gain weight from all the late latenight
night latenight Taco Bell.
And it is not very attractive to walk down
the beach over Spring Break only 87 work workout
out workout days left with a seven-layer-burrito
belly and a taco-supreme butt.
4. I also promise to stop watching so much
television. Man, the "X-Files" and reruns of
'Miami Vice" are just killing me. Not to
mention that damned 'Nick at Night.'
So there you have it, some things to con consider
sider consider for next semester. But if all else fails, it
will be nice to just sit around, cut class, eat
Taco Bell and watch Scully and Mulder in
their search for the truth. Have a good break.

in 10 acquaintance rape victims speaks
up about the crime.
Here's the reason: Victims are told by
friends, co-workers and loved ones that
what happened to them is not a crime.
Gerard said that it is common for
victims to be told that acquaintance rape
is "part of the college experience," espe especially
cially especially if alcohol is involved.
"People say, 'She was so drunk, she
didn't know what she was doing. She
deserved it.' The worst that should hap happen
pen happen is either alcohol poisoning or em embarrassment
barrassment embarrassment from waking up in puke,"
Gerard said. "Rape is not a part of that."
She could not be more right.
The stigma that rape carries demeans
victims people who already have been
humiliated completely. We guilt victims
into believing that rape is just women
whining about bad sex.
There is a strong difference between
bad sex and rape.
Contrary to popular belief, consentual
sex is only truly consentual when the

ITOWER^earbookl

word "yes" is verbalized.
Too many men believe that a woman
wants to have sex just by her body's
reactions. Or that asking for sex will ruin
the moment.
Neither of these are true.
According to Gerard, many victims do
not say no many of them say nothing
at all.
Looking at it in hindsight, victims find
themselves violently angry at them themselves
selves themselves for not fighting back.
Many "supporters" of victims question
them about their lack of "willpower."
This, too, needs to stop.
As a society, we have a tendency to
believe that we are somewhat homoge homogeneous
neous homogeneous everyone has a background
similar to us.
This is not the case.
We need to remember, and acknow acknowledge,
ledge, acknowledge, everyone's background. Just be because
cause because we're in a relationship for three
months doesn't mean we want to have
sex.

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER \9s7, A|4J$*EOJl,

And just because we come back to our
date's room doesn't mean we want sex.
Nor does it mean "yes" if we say no.
Women don't say no because they don't
want to be thought of as "whores
women say no because they don't want it.
There's definitely a Mars/Venus issue
here. Gerard said it best: "Men think
women want to be taken. Women want
to be romanced. We're definitely missing
the boat here."
But we find it easier to let the boat
sail out to sea rather than to say some something
thing something about it.
No, it's not pretty. But, as a society, we
need to stop letting egregious actions hap happen
pen happen by blaming the victim. It's time to talk
freely about what goes on behind closed
doors and start seeing rape as a crime
not something the victim provoked.
Rape has to stop being a four-letter
word.

STUDENT SPOTLIGHT:
O tv a/ grand/ zcales

By LEE RICHTER
Alligator Writer
ngrid Ting Lim remembers attending the UF
| Womens Leadership Conference her first year of
college.
This 21-year-old cellular and molecular neurobio neurobiological
logical neurobiological science senior attended the conference without
really knowing what it was about. But she says she
was intrigued by the concept of female leaders coming
together to discuss current issues.
Being surrounded by more than 400 ambitious
women, students, role models and accomplished lead leaders
ers leaders from the Gainesville community was intimidating at
first, but she was inspired to get involved.
She was so inspired that by the end of the confer conference,
ence, conference, she submitted an application for a staff position
the following year.
A few days later my heart was racing as I checked
the list of people selected," Ingrid reveals.
When I saw my name on the list of the 10 people
chosen, I was so excited that I ran home and called my
parents to share the good news.
LORAINE TEDDER ALLIGATOR STAFF

I wasnt spoiled by my parents with
Cabbage Patch Dolls and cable television.
Instead they focused on my intellectual
strengths ... which helped me build

Ingrid Lim

Point and counterpoint
Ingrids parents have supported her ideas and deci decisions
sions decisions since she was a young girl growing up in Tampa.
I wasnt spoiled by my parents with Cabbage
Patch Dolls and cable television, Ingrid remarks.
Instead, they focused on my intellectual strengths and
encouraged me to learn math and chess which helped
me build self-confidence.
When Ingrid was 5, she told her father that she
wanted to learn how to play the piano. Her dad
responded positively but insisted that she had to
promise to practice everyday.
She promised.
So the Lims bought a Steinway piano and Ingrid
would practice 30 minutes a day and gradually
increased it to one hour.
It is hard for a five year old to remain focused for
very long, Ingrid stresses. But my dad would lay on
the couch while I practiced, so I couldnt get out of it.
By the time she was 10, she was performing in
recitals and excelling in competitions. But her ambition
wavered and she didnt want to practice anymore.
I began a rebellious phase when I was about 12,"
Ingrid recalls. My piano pieces were getting more diffi difficult
cult difficult and it wasnt as much fun anymore.
So she began to complain about her afternoon
drills, and her dad finally told her to quit.
She describes this as a turning point in her life.
My dads reverse psychology worked, Ingrid rec recognizes.
ognizes. recognizes. When he told me it was OK to stop playing
piano, that made me want to play more. But I didnt
quit. Once practicing became self-initiated, I enjoyed it
and began to play for myself rather than for my dad.
Finishing first
Besides playing the piano, Ingrid has another love
medicine.
' One day when she was in the third grade, she was
assigned a project where she had to dress up as
someone she wanted to be when she grew up. Ingrid
came dressed as a doctor.
Complete with a white lab coat, a stethoscope and
a tongue depressor, Ingrid assured her classmates that
being a doctor was the best thing to do because
doctors save lives.
There were students dressed as fireman, teachers
and police officers, but I was the only one in my class
who wanted to be a doctor, Ingrid observes. I was so
proud of my mom working as a nurse in the cardiac
care unit, that I wanted to work in medicine too. My
mom always assured me that whatever I wanted to do
was obtainable.
Ingrid has been working diligently toward her goal
since then.
She was the valedictorian of Hillsborough County,

the 12th-largest school district in the nation, finishing
first out of more than 6,000 graduating seniors.
She is a National Merit Scholar who has been rec recognized
ognized recognized in Whos Who in American Colleges and
Universities, and was inducted into the UF Hall of
Fame last year. She received numerous scholarships,
awards and honors while still finding time to dedicate
to charity work and medical research.
In 1993, Ingrid did extensive research on protein
purification. In 1994, she worked in the biochemistry
lab in the College of Medicine at the University of
South Florida. Since 1995, she has been working in
the neuro-oncology lab at Shands at UF.
This dedication paid off when she received a call in
early November informing her of her acceptance to the
UF College of Medicine for next Fall. And today she
leaves for an interview at Harvard Medical School.
I love UF, and I am so happy that I have been
accepted to attend medical school here, Ingrid
acknowledges. But my sister Peggy is a freshman at
Harvard, so being there would be wonderful because
then I could be with her again.
Reaching new heights
In Fall 1994, Ingrid packed her things and moved to
South Hall to begin college.
She remembers being lonely the first night here,
but says she soon settled in and became active in the
Student Honor Organization and Gators Involved in
Volunteer Endeavors.
In her sophomore year, she moved off campus and
into her first apartment.
Being on my own was a learning experience,
Ingrid indicates. Buying groceries and paying bills was
new to me, but it helped me realized that I was finally
an adult.
Ingrids sophomore year brought a lot of responsi responsibility
bility responsibility her way when she was appointed the director of
the 1997 Womens Leadership Conference.
I was so excited that I was selected as the director
of the conference, but I was scared too," Ingrid states.
This was the biggest undertaking I ever accepted, but
I really believed in the goals of the conference so it
inspired me."
Ingrid planned relevant workshops and drew a
record 530 participants to the 10th anniversary of the
UF conference.
The UF Womens Leadership Conference is truly a
student-run endeavor, explains Helen Mamarchev,
assistant vice president of student affairs. Ingrid is a
wonderful example of a student who can balance the
demands of academics while participating in extracurricu extracurricular
lar extracurricular activities and doing a fine job in both."
Ingrid will attend next years conference on Jan. 24,
and admits it will be nice to just sit back and enjoy it for a
change just like she did when she was a freshman.
Being at the conference is a great opportunity to
meet truly amazing and successful people. It is proba probably
bly probably the accomplishment I am most proud of in my col college
lege college career.

Lust Handles
Gators must
'Handles' loss
of columnist
Boy is the UF football team in for it
now.
If Gator fans thought they had it bad
this year, well get a load of the adversity
the Orange and Blue will have to deal
with now.
Lust Handles is graduating. Gone for forever
ever forever from the pages of the Alligator. Out.
Au revoir, c'est la vie, hors d'oeuvres
and other French words like that.
Before making any rash judgments on
this fact not having anything to do with
the football team, consider this: the two
years I was a daily football beat writer,
1995 and 1996, the Gators played for
the national championship twice, won
a national championship and produced
a Heisman Trophy winner.
Don't forget the two first-round picks
and the two SEC titles.
I was there for every game, every prac practice,
tice, practice, and even in New York City when
Danny Wuerffel accepted his Heisman.
Now guess what happened the season
I stopped writing football every day so
that I could concentrate on being editor
in chief of the Alligator ?
No SEC title. No national title. No
Heisman. Not even an Alliance bid. (But
we got sports on the front page a whole
lot, didn't we?)
Next year the Gators plan on stooping
to the lowest of all lows. They are
thinking about letting a girl play.
Sacre bleu.
That all but guarantees another Cit Citrus
rus Citrus Bowl season.
Now, I know what you're saying. Even
in the bitter end, Lust Handles once again
is his typical pessimistic and negative self.
This is the same Lust Handles who un unnecessarily
necessarily unnecessarily ripped the UF cheerleaders,
Gator Growl, ROCK 104 and the Univer University
sity University Athletic Association at one point or
another in his four-year Alligator career.
Well, sometimes it's just better to look
at the dark side of things because the
other side is so damn boring. Besides,
somebody's got to bring up these diffi difficult
cult difficult subjects, so why not me?
Most of the time I was just the voice
for the voiceless. Somebody had to rip
ROCK 104 for playing non-student mu music,
sic, music, and somebody had to stand up and
tfsy that Gator Growl was getting way
too stale and politically correct.
Well now I'm leaving and I'm taking
any hopes of another national title with
me. But don't worry too much. The fact
that those were the only two years in
which Wuerffel was the full-time starter
probably had much to do with UF's
success.
So maybe the secret is the Wuerffel-
Handles combination. Hey Ditka, you
ready for me?

UF volleyball gains depth with commitments

By JOSH POLTILOVE
Alligator Writer
Two recruits who have orally com committed
mitted committed to the No. 8 UF volleyball team
should provide the Gators with some

added speed and depth.
Niki Hartley, a 6-foot out outside
side outside hitter from Mountain
View, Calif., and Kris Bova, a
5-foot-10 setter from Milwau Milwaukee,
kee, Milwaukee, Wise., will sign with the
Gators in February and should
play during the 1998 season.

Hartley, a senior at St. Francis High
School of Mountain View, was an All-
America selection on the Junior Olym Olympic
pic Olympic Team.
She has wanted to attend UF for a
while, but was unsure if the school
would be interested in her. When she

made her official visit, she found out
the UF coaches might not have been
able to accept her even if they were
interested.
A couple of weeks later, Hartley, who
also was recruited by Washington and

Bova's father, Chuck Bova, said his
daughter also fell in love with the

Texas A&M, received the news
from UF coach Mary Wise. She
said the second she got the
call, she orally committed.

UF (32-3) advanced to
the third round of the
NCAA Tournament, and
will travel to Madison,
Wise., to play No. 11 Wash Washington
ington Washington State (26-6) on Sat Saturday
urday Saturday at 4 p.m.
This is the first time in
four years UF has not
hosted a regional. Despite
losing two of three matches
entering the tournament,
Coach Mary Wise has been
pleased with her team's
performance of late.
"For a team to beat us,
they're going to have to
play awfully well," Wise
said. "We've had a history
of really battling hard to
win that first match, and to
win it 3-0 says a whole lot
about how we're playing."
UF, which has made the
regionals for seven straight
seasons and has played in
the regional championship
match the last two years,
will have to play its top ball
against a gargantuan Cou Cougar

gar Cougar squad.
Washington State boasts
6-foot All-America setter
Stephanie Papke and 6-
foot-3 middle blocker Jen Jennifer
nifer Jennifer Stinson.
UF middle blocker Nina
Foster said that for the Ga Gators
tors Gators to win, they must use
their quickness to their ad advantage
vantage advantage against the taller,
slower team.
'We know they're a good
team," Foster said. 'We
know they're a physical
team. We know they're a
good blocking team, and
we're just going to have to
do some things to counter
that."
If the Gators pull off a
win, they will face either
No. 4 Wisconsin or Notre
Dame in the Central Region
championship match in the
Wisconsin Field House on
Sunday at noon. The win winner
ner winner of the region will then
advance to the Final Four

'Kris was very apprehensive to make
phone calls to schools," Bova said. 'Her

Wise made the first call."

Picks Column
After a strenuous semester here at the Alligator
Brand Picks Column , we still have a lot of
questions left to ask.
How many quarterbacks can Steve Spurrier play
in one game? Is Joe Patemo really as old as he
looks7 What is the meaning of life? How can UF
beat Tennessee and Florida State and still lose
twice? Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego?
So we wanted someone with all of the answers.
Someone who knows why Vanderbilt continu continuously
ously continuously sucks. No problem. Boy did we find it
the infamous Magic 8 Ball.
Not to be confused with its distant relative,
Olde English 800 (which also can answer many
questions if consulted repeatedly in one evening
and may or may not have been asked" by Gator
QBs to join in a two-step), Magic 8 Ball was quick
to point out that a girl may play linebacker for
the Commodores next season.
Signs point to yes," Magic 8 Ball said.
Magic 8 Ball also knows who killed JFK and
what makes the special sauce on the Big Mac so
special. But we're not telling. It has nothing to
do with the sesame-seed bun, though.
As for the Nittany Lions, Magic 8 Ball predicts
a UF victory against Penn State in the Citrus Bowl.
But then again, it is also saying Captain Morgan
will be the next president.

UF womens cross country coach J.J. Clark led the Gators to their second straight Southeastern Conference
title this season, and for his efforts was named SEC Coach of the Year for the second year in a row.

Clark earns second straight SEC honor

By STEVEN PONALL
Alligator Writer
UF women's cross country coach JJ. Clark has
taken the Gators to another level, and on Wednes Wednesday,
day, Wednesday, he was recognized for it.
The Gators captured their second straight South Southeastern
eastern Southeastern Conference championship this season, and
Clark was rewarded by being named SEC Coach of
the Year for the second year in a row.
It is quite an honor to be named SEC Coach of the
Year knowing that this award comes from my peers,"
Clark said. The SEC is a tough conference and I am
very happy to receive this award two years in a row."
This season marked the most successful one in

Jefferson City, Tenn.
"We have the opportunity for the
first time in our lives to play against
each other in a competitive arena,"
Peck said. It's a big thrill, and

something I thought
would never happen."
The game was put to together

Purdue (5-2) was se selected

Peck hopes UF walks
away with a similar out-

can keep the prediction he made
before the season started.
"I told her I hope she goes at least
28-2," Peck said. One loss in
Knoxville, and one loss in March
(at NCAAs).'
Ross said Carolyn helped to get

XJF soccer recruit may kick down barriers

Incoming freshman could

Behind the metal bleachers and on the soggy

Though they may seem oblivious to the high
school game unfolding on the football field a few
yards away, the youngsters are aware of the situa situation.

To these girls, former Clearwater
Countryside place-kicker Jamie Theil
represents someone who has crossed
the gender lines with success on a BWfIUB
field once reserved only for males. BBBBH
Their gathering is symbolic of
Theil's newfound achievement.
"You always see a bunch of little
boys pretending they were the players
on the field," former Countryside B
football coach Bob Gobel said. "With fl
Jamie, it was the first time I saw little JBJHI B

And now Theil could have an B

Currently a senior at Countryside, Theil
has orally committed to play with the UF soc-
cer team for the 1998 season.
When Theil arrives in Gainesville, however, }
she may prolong her football career. Theil said
she and UF coach Steve Spurrier spoke during
her recruiting visit in September about walking >
on to the Gator football team. i
If she does, Theil would become the first
female to play in a Division I football game.

Yet Theil almost did not play football at all in
high school. The 5-foot-9, 135-pounder filled
her time earning all-state honors in soccer
along with playing volleyball and running jKfk
track. jfl
During the spring of her sophomore
year in 1996, several of her friends on the
football team approached her about join jointing

They know men have more

the starting kicker returned
from injury, she knew it was
time for her to concentrate on
school and soccer.
Kavouklis also recognized
Spurrier did not want her to try
to replace the Gators' starting
kicker.
"I know he's not going to say,
'I want you to kick because you
are a Division-I kicker,'" Ka Kavouklis

They knew she could kick because of her soccer
background. Theil decided to give it a shot.
"The only reason I played in high school is because
they asked me to do it," Theil said. "I would never
have thought of it if they hadn't asked me."
Theil's kicking abilities immediately impressed
Gobel, who told her she made the team after watch watching

He said, Tou've got a real nice leg. Do you want

'l'd rather continue soccer in college.'"
Nonetheless, Theil would walk on to the football
team if Spurrier asked her to even if it was just to
kick an extra point at the end of a blowout.
NCAA rules, however, prohibit a student-athlete
from obtaining aid in a non-football sport and then
playing in a football game.
Theil has the option to decline her soccer scholar scholarship

without violating NCAA rules.
'Financially we could handle that, but I think we'd
have to think long and hard about what's best for the
family and what's best for her, Joyce Theil said.
"Soccer comes first and we would have to think about
it."
Though Theil may be getting just that one chance
at kicking on the Division-I level, she wants to make
it happen.
That would give a whole new generation of little
girls the hope of becoming the next Jamie Theil.
"In-the first game, if I screw up, everyone's going to
think this is a big joke," Theil said. "People think girls
aren't, iiipposed to be out there. They don't think we
have the guts to do it. They say, 'Oh, you're a little

V. JANE WINDSOR ST. PETERSBURG TIMES
Former East Lake High kicker Andrea Kavouklis is one of an increasing number of women who played
football on the high-school level. Kavouklis wanted to walk on to the UF football team, but an ankle injury
dashed her hopes.

Women are breaking through the male-dominated sport of football

She had to accept Spurrier's
suggestion. She liked the idea
of becoming the first woman to
play in a football game.
Those plans, however, came
to a dramatic halt last spring.
She tore multiple ligaments in
her ankle during basketball
class, forcing her to give up
soccer and football.
"I had been planning on kick kicking
ing kicking a lot and improving myself
so I could walk on,' said Ka Kavouklis,
vouklis, Kavouklis, who now is at Florida
State. 'I couldn't improve with without
out without my ankle being healthy.
So I couldn't do it. By far,
that was the toughest decision
of my life. People said, 'You
could have been on the cover
of Sports Illustrated; but I had
to follow what my heart said."
Though Kavouklis never got
her shot at playing in a college
football game, there are more
opportunities than ever for a
woman to etch a place for her herself
self herself in the history books.
Jamie Theil, a place-kicker at
Clearwater Countryside, has
orally committed to play for the
UF soccer team in 1998 and will
walk on to the football team if
Spurrier asks her.
Setting the pace
If Theil got the chance to
kick, however, she would not

be the first woman to play in a
collegiate game. Liz Heaston, a
junior at Willamette University,
an NAIA school in Salem, Ore.,
became the first woman to kick
in a collegiate game when she
made two extra points in a 27-0
win against Linfield on Oct. 18.
Heaston, who also plays soc soccer,
cer, soccer, decided to kick just to see
if she could be successful. She
never played in high school
and certainly did not expect the
media hype following her his historic
toric historic day.
'lt's kind of weird," Heaston
said. "Those moments you have
in your life, you miss because
it goes so fast. I've got all the
videotapes and clippings. But I
was never looking for anything
like that at all. I was out there
to help the team, and being the
first female was just, 'Yeah. OK.
Whatever.'"
Yet there are more women
playing football than there ever
have been. The National Fed Federation
eration Federation of State High School
Associations reported that 740
women played football in the
1996-97 school year. In 1985,
only 34 women played.
The Florida High School Ac Activities
tivities Activities Association reported
that only six women played
high school in the state this
season. But it is the first time

Sue Durrant, a past president
of the National Association for
Girls and Women in Sport, be believes

Title IX, the 1972 federal law
granting equal opportunities to
men and women in athletics,
more women have gotten in involved

That has led to more accep acceptance
tance acceptance from the opposite gender.
'lt was once thought that
women were not supposed to
develop skills," Durrant said.
"To have the opportunity to
choose to go out for football
indicates we are being more
inclusive in looking at people,
skills and ability rather them
gender."
Just kick it
A big reason why women
have gotten more chances is
soccer, as the majority who are
playing football are place-kick place-kickers
ers place-kickers with a soccer background.
UF soccer coach Becky Bur Burleigh
leigh Burleigh said the sport provides
women with natural ability a
chance to become place-kick place-kickers
ers place-kickers because they use the same
techniques.
At the same time, she does
not feel women should be
fiven special opportunities to
ick because of gender.
'I don't think a girl should
make it because she can kick
30 yards," Burleigh said. 'I
could probably go out there
and make 30-yarders. It's not
all technical.
'She may able to hit consis consistently
tently consistently in practice, but can't hit
the broadside of the bam in a
game. So the mental aspect also
plays a role. But if the best
player happens to be a girl, I
don't think they'd hesitate to
put her out there."
On the whole, coaches and
teammates have been suppor supportive

Just for kicks
The opportunities for women to get
involved with football have increased
dramatically in the last 10 years. With
foe rise, more women are getting
chances to play at the college level.
Though there are only six female high
school players in Florida, one from

up that much more," Dix
'I remember them saying

Devilish ways
Yet not everyone has been
supportive of female football
players. Duke's Heather Sue
Mercer seemed set to become
the first to break the gender

In the Blue Devils' annual
Blue-White spring game, she
kicked a 28-yard, game-win game-winning

team to a 24-22 win.
After the game, Coach Fred
Goldsmith told Mercer she was

subsequently was cut.
Mercer, now a senior, filed 2T
federal lawsuit against Duke
and Goldsmith in September
because they "refused to give
her a fair opportunity to com compete
