Porn star delivers satisfaction in debate
Casey Anderson / Alligator Staff
Porn star Ron Jeremy makes his case for pornography during his opening statements for the
Great Porn Debate on Wednesday at the Stephen C. O'Connell Center.
* RON JEREMY DEBATED MERITS
OF HIS CRAFT ON WEDNESDAY.
By DAVID COHEN
UF students, brimming with anticipa-
tion, finally got their fill Wednesday when
Ron Jeremy came to debate his racy trade
at the Stephen C. O'Connell Center.
The Great Porn Debate, hosted by
Accent, welcomed approximately 2,800
to witness porn superstar Jeremy and
award-winning author Susan Cole duke
out the pros and cons of pornography.
Cole opened up the debate in a som-
ber tone toward pornography that would
continue throughout the night.
"Women will experience some form
of violence in their lifetime," said Cole, a
Harvard University graduate. "If it hasn't
happened yet it probably will and por-
nography plays a role in that."
Cole believes that women who enter
pornography were probably abused at
home and have no better alternative. Cole
added, however, that she "completely
Jeremy's position on the topic of
masturbation was similar, but he turned
Cole's argument against her.
"When she talks about the mastur-
bation thing, I totally agree with that,"
Jeremy said. "But the thing is if she thinks
masturbation is O.K., what is wrong with
the fantasies people use to masturbate?"
"Women will experience some
form of violence in their life-
time. If it hasn't happened yet
it probably will and pornogra-
phy plays a role in that."
Jeremy added that in the "very satu-
rated porn industry" where "every taste
can be satisfied," he does not defend the
renegade companies Cole referred to that
He added that "We (the porn industry)
just want to be left alone."
Despite her negative attitude toward
pornography, Cole was encouraging.
"For those who want to change the
world and see women as total equals,
make women's equality, in the economic
sense, very real," she said.
Jeremy, who has starred in more than
1,800 flicks, agreed.

BOARD OF GOVERNORS
Low-level faculty scarce
By STEPHANIE GARRY
Alligator Staff Writer
Though UF beat most other Florida uni-
versities in a report to go before the state's
highest authority on higher education, it
ranked second to last in making professors
available to teach lower-level classes.
Faculty provided only 31 percent of UF's
lower-level instruction 10 percent less
than the State University System average,
according to a report prepared for the Board
of Governors meeting at the Reitz Union
Only FSU performed worse in the cat-
"I think this stems from our use of other
types of instructors," said Joe Glover, interim
provost and UF's No. 2 administrator. Unlike
New College in Sarasota, where faculty ac-
count for 91 percent of instruction, UF uses
its large graduate program to provide much
of the instruction.
"They (New College) can rely really only
on faculty to teach," he said. "We rely on a
mix of people."
If the Board votes to
approve the report today,
it will go to the Legislature
for its annual review of
Machen made up 61 percent of up-
per-level course instruc-
tion and 75 percent of graduate instruction.
UF may need to hire more faculty to
reduce class size, but being a research uni-
versity doesn't mean UF students' education

In a last-minute effort to imple-
ment online voting in future Student
Government elections, select SG
groups likely garnered the petition
signatures needed to get the issue
on the Spring election ballot.
Representatives from Progress
and Phoenix parties collected sig-
natures from Sorority Row and

O'Connell Center before and after
the pornography debate Wednesday
"Technically, you could watch
porn and vote at the same time,"
joked SG Presidential Advisor
Lowell Wong, referring to what

that came out to solicit students

nearly 1,000 signatures are needed

The online program, which SG
already paid $20,000 for and is
ready to go, would allow students
to vote in campus elections using
their GatorLink IDs and passwords.
Getting the idea approved has been
an ongoing battle in Senate cham-
bers since 2001, and it was last shot
down in early Fall.
"It really is too controversial an
issue to be decided on in the Senate
chambers," Moritz said. He added
party division in Senate meetings
was a major reason for the project's
stagnation, in addition to Senators

possibility of the program being

Students meet to discuss new Asian student institute
By LINDSAY TAULBEE
Almost 40 students met in the Reitz Union
Auditorium Wednesday to discuss the prog-
ress of a proposal for an Institute of Asian and
The concept is one that has been discussed
between students and UF administrators for
years. At one point the possibility of a multi-
cultural center and housing space for different
student organizations was discussed.
However, many students were dissatisfied
with the idea, leading those involved to search
for other solutions.
"The topic of the multicultural center was
killed," Student Body President Jamal Sowell
said. "There was a rumor going around that it
will be built. It will not be built, to the best of
my knowledge," he said.
Associate Dean of Students Mary Kay
Schneider affirmed Sowell's assertion.
She clarified that no "grandiose" plans had
ever been made for such a center, but rather
that student input had been sought on the
Schneider also explained at the gathering
some of the issues preventing an institute from
coming to fruition, namely timing and money:
She commented on the lack of funds for all
aspects of campus life, let alone the institute.
"It's not just a diversity issue, it's an every-
thing issue," she said.
Sowell and Student Government
Multicultural Cabinet Director Lydia
Washington explained to the group that the
funds for such an institute would come from
Capital Improvement Trust Funds, set aside
by the state and only allotted every four or
Another possibility discussed involved
hiring a director of Asian and Asian-American
Cultures before creating an institute, as a way
of bringing it closer to reality.
Asian Student Union President Mark
Villegas said he hoped the forum would serve
to keep the issues fresh in people's mind.
Many of the people who have been in-
volved in pushing the initiative in the past
few years will be graduating soon, Villegas
"It's notjust a diversity issue, it's
an everything issue."

Associate Dean of Students
By educating new students, he said he
hopes the project will stay in the forefront and
people will not have forgotten about the issue
when money finally is available.

Failed mayoral candidate and UF student Mike
Belle vowed to represent both college students and
Gainesville residents as he presented his platform for
the District 3 City Commission seat race Wednesday
afternoon on the steps of Tigert Hall.
Belle's platform encourages better relations be-
tween Gainesville homeowners and student renters,
unified city development and increased access to local
government, he said to a crowd of 20 over the noise of
Southwest 13th Street traffic.
"I want every person to cherish
this city and think of it as a place
where you want to buy a home,
where you want to start a career,
where you want to start a business
and where you want to raise your
family," Belle, a business econom-
ics senior, said.
Belle serves as a Student
Government senator. He made an
unsuccessful bid for mayor of Gainesville last spring
but dropped out two weeks before the election, citing
Before declaring his candidacy for the Commission,
Belle authored and got passed a bill encouraging stu-
dents to vote as a bloc, a move criticized as self-serv-
ing and ethically questionable by local officials.
Belle's new platform proposes offering incen-
tives, such as class credits or scholarships, for student
involvement in the community, Belle said after his
District 3 City Conunissioner Tony Domenech
could not be reached for comment.
Jonathan McGowan, a Gainesville political con-
sultant, said he is skeptical of yet another student
running for local government, as he's seen unsuc-
cessful student candidates in nearly every election
"He's doomed from the start," McGowan said.
Without the established background of a p'erma-
nent Gainesville resident, Belle lacks a connection
with the community and has unrealistic expectations
of changing the system, McGowan said.

Court case could decide
the future of file-sharing
Kazaa. Grokster. Soulseek. eDonkey.
If a file-sharing case that has just reached the
Supreme Court is decided in favor of the defendant,
the names of these peer-to-peer services likely will top the
next day's obituaries.
Though Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios v. Grokster may
appear to be a simple case regarding copyright violation, it
has the potential to threaten the very existence of P2P ser-
Essentially, the Supreme Court will decide whether or not
these services are legally responsible when their users trade
To opponents of file-sharing, it seems to be a straight-
forward situation: P2P services allow customers to commit
crimes, so they should face the legal repercussions.
But this is akin to saying video-rental stores should be
responsible if their customers make illegal copies of movies.
It's not even any different than saying telephone compa-
nies should be punished when people use phones to set up
Sure, the opportunity for illegal action is there, but the
services in no way condone it nor can they stop it.
Opponents argue there are legal services that, for a fee,
allow users to download music, and some in the works may
allow a limited form of music sharing.
This is not good enough. These services do not allow the
sharing of video and other types of files, nor .will they likely
ever be capable of sharing legal software and noncommercial
files without the-possibility of illegal use.
The fact is, a decision against Grokster would set a prece-
dent with disastrous consequences. None of the P2P services
can stop the sharing of copyrighted files through their pro-
grams, so the day will come when they realize they are one
step away from being in court.
After this realization, they will start falling one-by-one.
Obscure, underground file-sharing programs will still ex-
ist, of course, and so will paid services. The sort of popular,
free services that have caused a revolution in the way we
share information, however, will disappear like dinosaurs
This issue hits hard at UF, where file-sharing is practically
a way of life.
We've already seen the danger of file-sharing restrictions
with the trouble that the monitoring-program ICARUS has
ICARUS itself is proof the sharing of copyrighted files
cannot be regulated at the current state of technology with-
out preventing legal activities.
In fact, you're probably within reach of someone who has
been denied access to an online computer game because of
ICARUS' overenthusiastic hunt for file sharers.
But this case has bigger implications for the sharing of
media on the Internet.
The Supreme Court in past cases has stated a desire to
keep the Internet as a place in which civil rights remain in-
tact. They have granted liberal First Amendment protection
to Web-based speech and have upheld the right for citizens
in general to communicate as they see fit.
Now, it is time for them to take the next step in protecting
the distribution of online media from needless government

,.Rape revenue hs nsol
Rape revenge has dire social effects
exual assault, like any other type of violence, is pri-
marily an assertion of physical dominance. On this,
there can be little argument.
Nor is there much doubt about the degree of direct
harm to the victim. Let us consider, however specula-
tively, the indirect damage to society.
There is a predictable initial reaction of shock and
anger among those who know the victim. This may lead
to violent retaliation or the advocacy of violence against
rapists, as it has in the case of at least two recent Alligator
readers. Despite a longstanding practice of collective re-
venge pursued in this country via the justice and penal
systems, this is not a solution. Rather, it exacerbates the
decay of the social fabric and is a poor deterrent.
After the initial flush of rage passes, or if the perpetra-
tor is not apprehended, many victims and their associates
may sublimate the urge for vengeance to a general urge
to emasculate men. This urge is then transferred through
guilt onto young males as part of the coercive regime
of socialization that represses their healthy and normal
sexual desires, resulting in untold psychological damage
- thus forming future rapists, misogynists, wife-beaters
and other deviants. The urge also informs the passive-ag-
gressive behavior that drives many females into "butch"
roles and "feminazism," which have parallels to rape as
sexual expressions of power, albeit on a psychological
rather than a physical level. Regardless of the mode of
sublimation, it is a form of damage and must be mini-
mized in any healthy society.
A prominent instance of perpetuating the culture of
victimhood is the sexual objectification of women and,
to a lesser extent, of men a process to which men and
women seem irrationally committed on college campus-
es. Another such instance is the widespread false passiv-
Paul ity adopted by women who acquire
Wagner mates through entrapment, pursu-
Speaking Out ing sexual needs without responsi-
bility and demanding greater pay
for less work along with greater support for the repro-
ductive process. Perhaps the most egregious examples of
such behavior occur in women's advocacy groups, where
all men are seen as potential rapists unless they have been
rendered socially or psychologically submissive.
One solution to the growing menace is to apply the
same standards of conduct to men and women with
regard to displays of power and calls for vengeance,
however disguised. In a truly just and healthy society,
the sexual impulse would be revered and celebrated as
frequently as practical, free from the trammels of psy-
chosocial and physical dominance. This would require
a degree of honor and respect from men towards women
rarely practiced today, as the male is generally more
physically dominant. It also would require willingness
on the part of women to refrain from hurtful narratives
of historical wrongs, which are a kind of hate speech.
Just as we recognize that to recite a litany of past inju-
ries during mediation of conflict destroys the possibility
of establishing agreement, so we must understand that
without equal ground in the present no future equality
can be constructed.
As the typically more'psycho-socially capable gender,
womeri must accept that to label every man a rapist only
encourages negative relations with women, and they
must accept some responsibility for nurturing the well-
being of males instead of wielding the Bobbitt knife.
Until then, we can only plead with the rapists and the
emasculators: Stop the violence.

Rape more complicated than presented
Editor: Once again, we have seen an incen-
diary piece of sexist propaganda from Campus
NOW, written under the guise of equality for
women and political correctness.
It amazes me the argument is made that "it
is not the responsibility of women to prevent
their being raped." That is like me saying, "I
am burdened by having to lock my car, so
people should just stop stealing cars."
What they fail to point out is that a woman
can be just as at fault for rape as a man. What if
she says "yes," when she means "no"? What if
her provocative clothes or innuendo is misin-
terpreted? What if she feels guilty about sex or
wants to get revenge? What if she was under
the influence of alcohol? She can claim rape in
all of these cases, and rape convictions can be
based on the accuser's testimony alone with-
Fraternities are implicated as condoning
rape and sexual assaults because 10 to 30
percent of on-campus sexual assaults occur in
fraternities. There's no mention, of course, of
how these women wound up at the fraternity
in the first place. Nor is there any mention of
who was intoxicated at the time, because, after
all, the man should be responsible for the ac-
tions of both himself and the woman, even
though they both might be drunk.
My favorite statement is that Campus
NOW "believes that rape is the result of the
unequal power balance between women and
men." Interestingly, black men are three times
more likely to be reported a rapist than white
men. Do they suddenly have more political
and economic power?
Missing from their discussion of rape is
that false accusations are far more common
than is known. Indeed, a U.S. Air Force study
discovered that around 60 percent of rape ac-
cusations that were investigated in the study
turned out to be false.
What's more, a report from the Journal of
Sex Research found that 63 percent of men
and 46 percent of women said they had ex-
perienced unwanted intercourse by the time
they were in college. Using the definition of
rape as unwanted sex, virtually everyone has
The point is that rape isn't just a man's
problem or a woman's problem. It's a problem
of how we've all been socialized. Most impor-
tantly, the solution isn't about blaming one
sex or the other but about a sharing of equal
responsibilities in all aspects of a relationship.
For a woman to hide behind assumed inno-
cence and helplessness and an unwillingness
to be responsible for any and all of her actions
makes a man into a criminal for not taking
responsibility for her. That is not equality, and
that is truly a disservice to women.
Guns as rape deterrent not a good idea
Editor: Paul Snow ("Gators Must Take
Arms Against Rape") has completely missed
the point of Sexual Assault Awareness
Month. His depiction of women as defense-
less and incapable of protecting themselves
without a pistol in their purse is archaic and
insulting. Rape is not the result of waning
gun sales but rather an issue of power and
abuse. Furthermore, statistics show that us-
ing a handgun in self-defense is incredibly
rare. According to 'ue Violence Policy Center,
for every time a woman used a handgun to
kill a stranger in self-defense, 302 women
were murdered with a handgun.
While I presume Wayne La Pierre ap-
plauds your public plea-encouraging Gators
to arm themselves with concealed weapons,
you are only furthering violence and risks to
Board not the way to reform state policy
Editor: Oh, to be young again.
The young and idealistic Gavin Baker
would have the Board of Governors dictate
the policies of higher education to ensure the
absence of "political meddling." If this board
were objective, we would not be facing today
the problems of frivolous tuition increases
- 7.5% in-state and 12.5% out-of-state yet
again and the possibility of block tuition,
which Baker agrees would not work. When
these issues came up at the board meetings,
the only vote' against block tuition was the
chairman of the Florida Student Association.
Funny how that works out.
I have attended several board meetings
along with Student Body President Jamal
Sowell, and consistently he alone votes on
behalf of the students' interest. This happens
because 11 of the board's 14 seats are ap-
pointed by the governor and thus support his
In state government, nothing is free from
political meddling, and we as students have
to realize the only way to ensure our voice is
not only heard but taken into consideration
is by doing all the things the FSA works to-
We must take action, we must mobilize,
we must lobby and, if we choose not to, we
cannot complain about policies that "trap
families in a cycle of poverty" as Baker puts

Car damage prompts arrests
By MEGAN V. WINSLOW
Gainesville Police arrested three men
Wednesday morning in connection with ap-
proximately $2,000 in damage to two GPD patrol
vehicles, reports show.
Police say the suspects, Thierry Delisle, 20,
Steven Aldo Newman, 17, and Emanuel de Jesus
Blanco, 20, were at a party when they decided to
take a field trip to a nearby GPD patrol vehicle
parking lot Tuesday at about 2 a.m. Once inside
the lot, located on the south side of GPD head-
quarters, 721 NW Sixth St., the defendants pro-
ceeded to throw beer bottles at and kick vehicle
2482, police reported. Ultimately, one of the al-
leged vandals used a bottle to smash the driver's
side window and removed a flashlight, two jour-
nals and a pair of handcuffs, reports state.
But the culprit reportedly left fingerprints.
"There's a difference between bold and stu-
pid, and they border more toward dumb," GPD
spokesman Sgt. Keith Kameg said.
The three suspects later stumbled back to
Newman and Blanco's shared residence, where a
party was underway, and began bragging about
their escapade to guests, GPD reported. Then, po-
lice say, they tried handcuffing a few guests.
"The thing is, they didn't have the handcuff
key so it would have been pretty funny, or some-
body would have been pretty annoyed," Kameg
Through tips from party guests, the residence,
which Kameg said was "literally a stone's throw
from the police department," was located with
ease by investigators.
The three suspects were taken to GPD head-
quarters, where they later implicated themselves,
"The sad thing, I think, for them is now they'll
have a felony record trailing them their entire
life," Kameg said. "Nobody thinks about when
they have to go get a job and employers want
to know about your maturity and you tell them,
'Oh, I beat up a police car and then I stole hand-
cuffs because I thought it would be funny.'"

Camper Van Beethoven brings unique style to town
By NATHANIEL DEAS
Camper Van Beethoven has overcome its
fair share of adversity. Drugs. Alcohol. A de-
They've even had their equipment stolen
during their current tour ... twice.
After being vandalized in Montreal, the band
again was targeted in Dallas, where thieves by-
passed a security guard and cut through the
side of a trailer, helping themselves to amps,
guitars and other instruments.
"It's hard to believe that people can act so
cruelly as to steal our tools of our trade," violin-
ist Jonathan Segel said. "It also means we end
up touring to afford to buy new instruments
and not to feed ourselves. That sucks."
Despite the setbacks, 1980s underground
icons Camper Van Beethoven, along with
the Hackensaw Boys, will play the Common
Described by Segel as "a rock band that
throws anything it finds into the mix," Camper
Van Beethoven is hard to define. Sometimes
alt-country, sometimes psychedelic, sometimes
ska, Camper Van Beethoven saw a boost in
popularity after parting ways in 1990.
As record sales reached new heights, bands
such as Phish and moe. regularly covered
Camper Van Beethoven tunes.
"Maybe people started being bored with
what they were being presented with and
looked back to find better music," Segel ex-
plained. "Also, people are always looking to be
the cool kid, so any underground thing that is
obscure becomes cooler in retrospect. Post-facto
attention is better than none at all."
During the hiatus, singer David Lowery
found success as the frontman for Cracker,
whose 1993 hit "Low" still is a radio regular.
Hackensaw Boy Jesse Siske is excited about
touring with Camper Van Beethoven.
"They're putting on a pretty terrific show ev-
ery night," he said. "They rock out pretty good,
they've got some really good melodic sensibili-
ties, and just everybody's been in the band so
long, they got it down."
Described as alt-country, bluegrass and folk,
the Hackensaw Boys, who previously toured
with Modest Mouse, put on a high-energy,
acoustic show, Siske said.
Tickets for the show are $15 and are available
at the door or at Smoke. Doors open at 9 p.m.,
and Siske encourages a large crowd to attend.
"Come out and shake your ass and have a
good time," he said. "It's pretty unpretentious
and laid back, and it's just good old-fashioned

From the first play to the 20th
round on repeat, DiFranco's album
is a journey through years of pain,
lessons and life.
On the surface, "Knuckle Down"
DiFranco's voice is audibly
aged, rough in all the right places
but never off-key. Though she was
born in Buffalo, N.Y., I swear she
has some kind of Southern accent.
Most tracks have a folksy feel, with
sharp plucks of acoustic strings, a
style familiar to DiFranco fans.
Each track blends almost unno-
ticeably into the next, comparable to
the seamless sound of Radiohead's
"Hail to the Thief." As the CD
progresses, tempos slow, and
DiFranco's voice mellows, and the
majority of "Knuckle Down" flows
by before you fully can appreciate
it. It's only after more deliberate at-
tention that the album's true magic

his or her own ideas.
She sings mostly of broken hearts
and learning to he happy. Women
might identify a .little more easily
with her messages, but men equally
could enjoy the album musically.
In "Parameters," an entirely spo-
ken piece, DiFranco tells the story of
a woman who is surprised one night
by an intruder in her bedroom. It's
not clear whether the man is real or a
personification of fear, but the articu-
lation of this is irrelevant. I fell asleep
listening to the song one night and
had pretty creepy dreams.
Almost as notable as the qual-
ity of her words is the quantity.
"Knuckle Down" is chock-full of
original lyrics, and DiFranco has 16
other full-length albums, two EPs
and two live albums under her belt.
DiFranco went solo for her last al-
bum, "Educated Guess" (2004). For
the new release, however, she in-
vited Joe Henry to co-produce with
her. The album also features guest
musicians, like Todd Sickafoose on
bass and former band member Julie
Wolf on the melodica.
Unfortunately, DiFranco won't
be touring Florida any time in the
near future, but "Knuckle Down"
definitely is worth checking out. You
can listen to it once, but you won't be
satisfied until it has run on repeat in
your stereo for a week.

The beauty of dorm life is it forces you to be creative. You
probably make most of your meals in the microwave, but
you're telling me you can't find a place to do the nasty?
I'll start with the obvious. Unless you're on the exact same
class schedule as your roomie, I'm sure she's not around for
part of the day.
They don't call it an afternoon delight for nothing.
Lock the door, and if you haven't gotten off by the time
she's back from physics, just say you were napping (she'll
never know you were bent over her desk.)
Tell her you fantasize about having
two girls at once. Leave it at that, but
then mention it several times in the near
future. There are small steps you can take
to introduce her to the thrills of a sexual
triumvirate. Talk her into a three-way
kiss or watch a group porn together. If
she's game for a full-fledged female en-
counter, she'll let you know. Otherwise,
don't push your luck. You might end up
with no girl, let alone two.

Technicians on toes for tours
By BRETT KELMAN
While the Curtis M. Phillips Center's massive
stage curtain will not rise on David Copperfield un-
til 5:30 p.m. Sunday, the magic will have been going
on for two days.
Beginning at sunrise, empty audience seats will
witness an urgent construct of set and scene with
no time for intermission until something on stage
slowly takes shape into what will bewilder audience
members that night.
From the bottom of the orchestra pit to the
heights of the rigger's grid 80 feet above the stage
floor, specialists will work with a rapidity out-
weighed only by safety.
Overhead, riggers will work pulleys until every
line of lights is in perfect position. Backstage, stage-
hands must haul every prop and piece until four
jam-packed semi-trailers are bare.
And somewhere, "spot brothers" will just pray
they don't screw up.
Lights. Props. Scenery. Speakers. Stage crew.
Musicians. Costumes. Electronics. Make-up.
Instruments. Performers. Technicians.
All scripted to enter stage right, through either
the backstage door or the loading dock.
By midnight, they will vanish the same way.
This stressful scene is common to the "bus and
truck" shows that frequent the Phillips Center's
stage, but rarely stay a whole day.
Most of the Phillips Center's larger productions
are touring show on a tight schedule.
The amount of manpower, skill and organiza-
tion necessary to unpack and repack a fanfare like
Copperfield's show is a performance in itself.
This week the theater will present three.
On Friday the Soweto Gospel Choir will perform
an exotic blend of cultural music from South Africa.
The Phillips Center must hang lights and bal-
ance acoustics accordingly for the 26 singers and
five band members, Operations Manager Matt
"Normally traveling performances rehearse be-
fore they ever go on tour. Most can do their shows
cold," Koropeckyj-Cox said, but because Gainesville
is Soweto's first performance on their American
tour, they will spend Friday practicing in their new
And these rehearsals will allow audio supervisor
David Michael and assistant supervisor Eric Ross to
tweak the show's sound, while others wander the
center, ears perked, testing acous-
tics .in every nook or cranny that
houses a seat.
The "load-in" should require
about 20 stagehands working all
day. On Saturday, the center will
come together with the Samuel
P. Ham Museum of Art and
Copperfleld the Florida Museum of Natural
History' for a fundraiser called
the "British Invasion."
It will present "The Fab Four," a Beatles tribute
band that will require a new light hang and replica
set of the Ed Sullivan Show constructed on stage.
A technical crew will be sent to the other facilities
to help prep, while 15 stagehands will work all day
unloading the sound equipment and instruments.
But after the invasion ends, not everyone will
make it home.
A night shift of 10 workers will work hard day's
night to strip the stage in preparation for Sunday's
"huge great big" load-in of Copperfield's show.
"Well will run around the clock to make these
shows happen," Koropeckyj-Cox said, "It takes
such a large team to make this work."
The magic show will require about 40 stagehands
to set up, he said, and everyone involved must sign
a secrecy oath protecting the mysterious ingredients
to Copperfield's magic.-
Forefather of ska
to play Eddie C's
By CHAD SMITH
One of ska's most storied bands will return to Gainesville on
Tuesday. New York City's The Toasters, among the first to introduce
the modem ska mix of punk rock and reggae, at least in the U.S., have
stood the test of time and several line-up changes, boasting a 23-year
career with more than 40 members.
Robert "Bucket" Hingley, the band's lead guitarist and vocalist,
immigrated to America from London in the early 1980s and formed
The Toasters a few years after his arrival. The ska music he was so
fond of in England had not yet made such a splash across the pond,
but he was not deterred from his passion.
Little did he know that in two decades he would be one of ska's
forefathers as both the lead singer of a prominent band and owner
of the now-defunct indie label Moon Ska Records, which was a vital
source of underground ska for nearly 20 years. Hingley now runs
Megalith Records with the same general mission in mind: making
sure ska music still has a pulse.
After the brief ska explosion of the late '90s imploded, The Toasters
were at the forefront of a genre chock-full of passionate bands left with
a major label market that had shut the door.
While the intention never has been obtaining fame and fortune,
calling it a career after the ska wave crashed certainly would not have
been censurable. But The Toasters just love playing ska that much.
The Toasters are fond of Florida, too. "There's a pretty good scene
down,there. It's a little like California but even more laid back,"
The Toasters will play six shows in the Sunshine State on their Ska
Brawl Tour with Orlando's The Supervillians. Hometown favorites
The Usuals also will be on the bill for the Gainesville date at Eddie C's
on South Main Street.

TREOS tries Florida again
By JACQUELINE DAVISON
"We have some people that we let down
last time when we didn't make it, so I'd like
to make it up to everybody," The Receiving
End of Sirens vocalist/guitarist, Alex Bars
said of their upcoming tour.
"The first time we ran out of money, and
the last attempt was hurricane out."
TREOS, along with Triple Crown
Records label-mates As Tall As Lions and
The Militia Group's Cartel, finally will hit
Florida in their east coast "Lions, Sirens and
Since signing with Triple Crown in
November, TREOS has been busy record-
ing a slew of new songs for their debut
disc, "Between the Heart and the Synapse,"
slated to drop this spring.
"It will be about 65 minutes long with
transitions between most of the songs,"
"Our goal as a band has always been to
challenge ourselves, challenge the listener
and create something different."
Concert-goers can expect lots of "good
old fashioned rock," Bars said.
Atlanta's pop-rockers, Cartel, also are
looking forward to the winter tour.
"It should be a lot of fun," lead vocalist
Will Pugh said.
"As Tall As Lions are good guys and
a good band because they don't sound
anything like us, and we don't sound like
them. It should be fun for the kids."
Cartel's signing to The Militia Group
this past August actually was spawned
from a rumor circulated saying they were
signed to the label.
Though untrue at the time, TMG de-
cided to scope out Cartel and signed them.
The biggest change for Cartel since ink-
ing the deal has been upgrading to a 2003
15-passenger van from their '96 Dodge
Conversion, Pugh said.
"And seeing yourself where you
shouldn't be considering how long we've
been a band," he adds, in reference to their
recent attention in Alternative Press.
He also is fond of being able to concen-
trate on music instead of paying the bills.
As far as Cartel's style goes, Pugh pre-
fers to avoid the term "pop-punk."
"People can say it is, but it's not," he
said. "None of us listened to Fall Out Boy or
Yellowcard. We don't draw anything from
them. We all grew up on Atlanta hardcore,

'Corduroy' gets personal
By GORDON OWEN
While his wit supersedes his works, cel-
ebrated gay author David Sedaris draws
from his experiences with family, friends
and relationships to make his works worth
From his first major work, "Naked,"
to his most recent book of essays "Dress
Your Family in Corduroy and Denim,"
Sedaris' humor reflects the comical events
"My writing is just a desperate attempt
to get laughs," Sedaris said. "If you get
anything else out of it, it's.an accident."
The essays in "Corduroy" tell of his
exploits with his family and adventures in
rural France with his partner Hugh. Many
of the 27 essays have been printed in maga-
zines such as G.Q. and the New Yorker.
The book explores the divide that often
exists among members of the same family
or same nation.
Throughout the book, Sedaris satirizes
his family's odd behavior. Sedaris tells of
his father's overbearing nature, his sister's
humor and his mother's eccentric behavior
- she locked the children out of the house
after one snowy day too many.
"Corduroy" propels his mother as one
of the foremost females in modem litera-
ture. She, more than any family member,
reflects Sedaris' life; essentially he does
what she says.
Sedaris describes the difficult birth of his
sister's child and his other sister's gripes
about his writing being too personal..
In his most intimate collection of writ-
ings yet, Sedaris indirectly reveals his own
insecurities as well as his awkward devel-
opment from child to man.
Much like the rest of his work,
"Corduroy" explores the interrelationships
of family, friends and partnerships. Sedaris
writes from his internal self and the deliv-
ery of the stories is timeless.
Comedy and humor aside, "Corduroy"
marks Sedaris' transition from humorist to
a writer of memory.
Sedaris will speak at the Phillips Center
for Performing Arts on Saturday, April 9.
In preparation for his April 9 speech at
the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts,
I recommended picking up "Corduroy."

If you think Wal-Mart is the face of evil, and Clear

tiric stylings of musician/comedian Dave Lippman (aka
George Shrub, the Singing CIA Agent), Saturday night.
Lippman's incisive lyrics parody everything wrong
with America from uniform trends in consumer culture
and the government's denial of global warming to repeti-

Nearly 50 different speakers who have visited Palestine
or Iraq are participating in the tour, hoping to inspire au-
diences and relate first-hand experiencesof the conflict.
Lippman has visited Palestine and Israel, and his per-

slide show chronicling his impressions of the visit.
Lippman says his musical influences are varied and
include jazz, western swing and a calypso sound that he

experience has been positive."
Whether you agree with his strong cynical views or

concerns that the previous format
was confusing. Students didn't know

Halasz. "It's not just for juniors, seniors

Forum prepares students for a range of internships
If you're thinking about getting an
internship but feet like you might not
have have time for one because you are
taking summer classes or you're not sure
how or when to get one because of your
major, go to the Internship Forum!
More than 200 students are expected
to attend the event on Feb. 1 in the J.
Wayne Reitz Union Grand Ballroom from
5:30 pm 7:30 pm.
Students are realizing that
internships are the key to success,
said Heather White assistant director
for experiential education, Career
"Internships give you a chance to
apply your academic knowledge in
the workplace, gain career-related
experience, increase your marketability
upon graduation and create a professional
network," said White.
Students usually have a number
of questions about internships so this
informal panel format is a comfortable
way for them to meet employers and
learn how to start their search, said
Representatives from a variety of
industries will be on hand to answer
students' questions and share pointers
about securing internships.
"We invited different types of
employers to represent the variety of
internship opportunities students can
have," said Amelie Romelus, graduate
assistant for experiential education and
coordinator of the forum.
'We hope students will leave the
forum with a better understanding of
what it takes to be a successful intern,"
The forum will feature employers in
management, public service, journalism
and broadcast, retail and engineering.
Forum attendees are encouraged
to formulate questions they wish to
ask employers in preparation for the

County offers vaccine at brunt of yearly flu season
By MEDHA RAVAL
Alligator Contributing Writer
There is now hope for getting a flu shot for
those denied one earlier this flu season.
Flu shots are available on a first-come-first-
served basis at the Alachua County Health
Department Main Clinic, 224 SE 24th St.
The shots became available Monday
morning and have been going fast, said
Sherry Windham, Alachua County Health
Department immunization manager.
"We really don't have much left," Windham
said of their 388 doses as of Wednesday.
The health department received 1,000
doses last week in a statewide allocation of the
vaccine. The number of doses was based on
county population and need, Windham said.
The vaccine is available Monday through
Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Pjabpt Shots are $15. The only insur-
ance taken is Medicare Part B,
"They can try to bill their insurance them-
selves and collect later," Windham said about
those not covered by Medicare Part B.
Shands at UF offers the vaccine for$20,
while North Florida Regional Medical Center
does not offer flu shots to patients.
Sheri Martin, program assistant for the
nursing director, said the Student Health Care
Center does.not have a supply of the flu shot.

Member exits post
By JAMES VANLANDINGHAM
Alligator Staff Writer
When the Board of Governors meets this morning in
the Reitz Union, it will be one man short.
Board member Miguel De Grandy, a Miami lawyer
and lobbyist, resigned Wednesday citing a proposed pol-
icy change by state Senate President Tom Lee that would
ban lobbyists from serving on the Board of Governors or
on individual universities' boards of trustees.
"The proposal currently under consideration by the
Senate would restrict my ability to effectively represent
my clients, contrary to the oath I took 23 years ago when
I became a member of the Florida Bar," De Grandy wrote
in a letter to Gov. Jeb Bush.
De Grandy, who attended UF both as anundergradu-
ate and as a law student, represents clients before state
He is the first lobbyist to resign from such a position
since Sen. Lee floated his proposal Jan. 11.
FSU school to be debated

The yearlong saga of the embattled
proposal to build a chiropractic school
at Florida State University could finally
come to an end today.
The Board of Governors, which over-
see~iFlorida's public universities, will
take up the matter today at UF.
The meeting comes two weeks after
the FSU Board of Trustees ducked the is-
sue and sent a proposal to "investigate"
the chiropractic program straight to the
governors without making a recommen-

unsure whether to vote the chiropractic

proposal back to FSU for its trustees to
make a decision.
"The Board of Trustees is to take re-

The trustees did it anyway.
In sidestepping the issue, the FSU
trustees were irresponsible, said E.T. York,
a former UF interim president and plain-
tiff in a lawsuit seeking more autonomy
for the Board of Governors.
Nevertheless, Roberts shouldn't follow
that bad example, he said.
"I'll be very disappointed if the Board
of Governors doesn't vote the issue up
or down," York said. "There's little to be
gained by sending it back to FSU for fur-
ther consideration. That would just keep
the issue alive and keep the pot boiling for
months or even years to come."

"We believe that the best quality edu-
cation is provided by a faculty that is en-
gaged in cutting-edge research," he said.
The report supports UF's research
prowess in several areas. UF leads the
state system in master's degrees, pro-
ducing almost 1,000 more than second-
ranked USF and dominates its coun-
terparts in awarding professional and
doctoral degrees. It also surpasses other
state institutions in faculty publishing;.
UF students trail their peers at other
state universities, where a higher per-
centage graduate within 115 percent of
their degree requirements, but Glover
said the comparison attests to the
stature, not the sloth, of UF students.
UF students come in with many dual
enrollment, Advanced Placement and
International Baccalaureate credits and
often graduate with two majors or de-
grees, he said. More importantly, UF
stands above other institutions in four-
year graduation rate.
"Students move through University

tive manner," he said. "It think that's the

Students use poetry to dismiss racial stereotypes
* THE EVENT WAS PART OF
UF BLACK HISTORY MONTH.
By LINDSAY TAULBEE
Students gathered at the
Institute of Black Culture
Wednesday evening with the
goal of dispelling stereotypes,
while expressing themselves cre-
atively through poetry.
The forum, called "Black on
Black Prejudice: You Don't Know
Me!" was part of Black History
Month, and was designed to
coincide with the IBC's semi-
weekly poetry nights.
"It was awesome, just the
fire everybody left with," said
Stephen Roberts, director of the
institute. "Everyone left here
tonight feeling motivated," he
The forum focused on expos-
ing prejudices that exist among
the black community and ways of
recognizing and rect& ,ring them.
"There's a culture that existed
during slavery that we still act off
of today," Roberts told the stand-
ing-room-only crowd of more
than 60 people.
The conversation's tone
swayed between light-hearted
and serious as students dis-
cussed issues including relations
between the genders, the image

One student talked about be-
ing teased as a child for being
smart and for having "black" fa-
cial features. The teasing, he said,
came not from white people but
from people within his own race.
He later read a poem entitled
"All Eyes On Me."
He prefaced the poem by
saying, "No matter what contri-
bution I make, there's still little
things about me that make me a
minority within a minority."
Students also talked about
prejudices associated with the
idea of "good hair" and its con-

"There is notlning wrong with my

Claridy later drew loud applause
from the audience with a poem ex-
pressing frustration at black people
who look down on other blacks for
coming from a different place.
Students also spent time discuss-
ing relations between black men
and women, and the responsibilities

assaults at UF are not significantly lower
than the average.
A comparison of UF and seven other
public colleges, each with more than
40,000 students, shows their annual av-
erage of reported rape cases from 2001
to 2003 is approximately 9.8. During the
same time frame, UF had an average of 9
cases per year.
UPD spokesman Joe Sharkey said
UF's statistics show every sexual assault
case reported to the department, as well
as anonymously reported cases from
university officials or other law enforce-
ment agencies. Law requires UF officials
to anonymously report when a student
who's been sexually assaulted approaches
Sharkey said this system makes UF's
sexual assault statistics more accurate.
"Many victims of sexual battery do not
choose to report," Sharkey said. "We wish
they would; it would give us an opportu-
nity to investigate the crime."
Campus NOW's focus, according to
membership director Camille West, is to
pressure UF to do more at Preview by
telling incoming male students the conse-
quences of rape.
"These things are still happening and
the university doesn't want to talk about
them, but we want to force them," West
.West referenced a 1999 Delta Chi fra-
ternity initiation party that resulted in a
female stripper's rape claim.
She cited the night's videotaped
evidence as an example of a mishandled
campus rape case.
But ultimately the stripper was
charged with filing a false report based on
the videotape. The rape charges later were
dropped after she pleaded guilty to oper-
ating an escort service without a license.
"[Sexual assault] is some-
thing that Campus NOW and
the National Organization for
Women have been fighting for
40 years, and we will continue
Campus NOW membership director
Delta Chi was put on disciplinary pro-
bation for their actions, but Wesf said more
action should have been taken against the
fraternity and that the stripper was treated
unfairly in the case.
"[Sexual assault] is something
that Campus NOW and the National
Organization for Women have been fight-
ing for 40 years, and we will continue to
fight," she said.
Sharkey noted this is not the first time
the university or its police have been ac-
cused of recording false statistics.
Security on Campus Inc., a nonprofit
campus crime-reporting watchdog orga-
nization, was contacted in the late '90s by
an individual who disputed the statistics,
Sharkey said, adding that UF proved its
numbers were accurate.
"It was stated by them in a letter that
we are actually a national model for others
to emulate," Sharkey said. *
In attendance at the Tuesday meet-
ing was former Interfratemity Council
President Jared Hernandez. His appear-
ance came on the heels of a guest column
by Campus NOW members in Tuesday's
IFC Administrative Vice President
Jeremy Martin, who could not attend the
meeting, disputed statistics in the column
which stated an estimated "10 to 30 per-
cent of on-campus sexual assaults occ~yin
"It was good that editorial was writ-
ten to raise awareness on the number of
sexual assault cases that have occurred or
campus," Martin said, "but I just wish that
the part specifically about fraternities was
researched a little bit more accurately."
But Hemandez would not dispute the.
column, instead acknowledging ."more
could be done" to stop rape on campus.
UPD statistics do not differentiate be-
tween sexual assault cases at fraternities
and other residences on campus.

Progress of Library West renovation moving quickly

If all goes as smoothly as it has so

Workers will begin installing the
rails Feb. 22 and should be done be-

Construction workers weld strips of galvanized steel on the new roof of Library West as part of its renova-
tion. Contractors expect the project will be finished by January 2006.
"Today, as I was preparing for
my class on urbanization, I thought
of a book I'd read that would've
helped, but I couldn't get it in time,"
said Bowen, who also teaches. "It
was nothing career-threatening, just
a matter of inconvenience."
He also said the inability to
browse shelves has been a huge fac-
tor, and graduate students, particu-
larly in the humanities, have been
hit especially hard.
UF education junior Kim Altman
agreed the renovation is inconve-
nient, but also saw the necessity of
"It sucks," Altman said, "but they
have to update it at some point."
Altman said she would use the
library's planned 24-hour study
room, adding that there's currently
nothing like it on campus, "which is
kind of annoying."
LeiLani Freund, chairwoman
of the Public Services Information
Technology Coordinators Group,
conducted a focus group with 10
undergraduates Monday to get in-
put on the technology they would
like to see in Library West. The area
the group centered on was the third

"You know what? We're not too far

The Gators came into that game rid-

Roberson proved that his shooting

attempts in the loss.
While Roberson's difficult three-
pointer over two Volunteer defenders
sent the game into overtime, other at-

have allowed Tennessee to escape with
a win. Against Georgia, Roberson went

"I don't think she has the mentality of a freshman," Peck

Following Sunday's loss, UF dropped into a three-way
tie for fourth place in the East. With another loss, the Gators
would fall to .500 and enter a precarious position as the SEC
season nears the halfway point.
"I think coming off of a loss, of course you have the mind-
set that you need a big win," senior Tamia Williams said. "I
think we know we have a long road ahead of us, so we're just
working on getting better."
Thursday begins a week-long stretch in which UF plays
three ranked teams: Georgia, No. 23 Vanderbilt on the road

"We've got Georgia, and the biggest thing I want our team
to be concerned with is that every other team in our confer-

Saints suffer loss
* NO. 4 SANTA FE LOSES
FIRST GAME OF THE YEAR.
By RYAN MOSS
Alligator Contributing Writer
It was supposed to be the
game that Santa Fe made his-
tory. With a win against Daytona
Beach Community College, the
Saints basketball team would
have earned its place in the re-
cord books by tying the SFCC
record of 21 consecutive wins.
Things weren't meant to be, how-
ever, as the Saints suffered their
first loss of the season, 75-71.
"I never thought we would
, .- ..
go undefeated," Coach Chris
Mowry said. "Normally, every-.
one gets beat at some point and
getting beat is just something
The Saints entered the
game ranked No. 4 in the
National Junior College Athletic
Association poll, but struggled
in front of a record home crowd.
Santa Fe shot just 39 percent from
the field nearly 10 percent
below its season average, which
Mowry attributed to the intense
defensive pressure Daytona
Some argued that there was
extra pressure on the Saints
because of the record-book fac-
tor, but freshman guard Devin
Harden didn't buy into that
"It's not something we
thought about," Harden said.
"We have just been trying to go
game by game."
Santa-Fe trailed DBCC by 4 at
halftime, putting doubts in the
minds of Saints fans. However,
the Saints opened the second half
with a 13-3 run, and regained the
"We started making a run and
I thought the game was over,"
sophomore guard Brandon
Kelley said. "But they played
well and kept their composure
and came back."
The game became a seesaw
battle, as it seemed whenever one
team would make a run, the other
would quickly counter. Neither
team was able to take a double-
For most of the game, Daytona
Beach had little trouble beating
the Saints' full-court pressure.
Santa Fe, who used easy buckets
off of turnovers early, didn't cre-
ate nearly as many as they had
grown accustomed to in previous
Five Saints scored in double
figures, with Kelley's 15 points
leading the way.
On tap for the Saints is a game
at St. Johns River Community
College on Saturday. It will prove
interesting to see how the Saints
respond after suffering their first
loss of the season.
"We weren't even looking
to go undefeated, so the loss
brought us back to reality,"
Although the Saints went 18-
0- in nonconference play, they do
not have an automatic bid to the
"Winning those first 18 didn't
mean anything, if we don't win
conference games," Mowry said.
In the first game of the dou-
bleheader, the Santa Fe women's
team overcame a double-digit
second-half deficit to force
overtime. The extra period went
down to the wire, as Daytona
Beach guard Marchele Campbell
hit a game-winning three-pointer
with 5.6 seconds remaining, giv-
ing her team the 69-66 victory.
The Santa Fe women's team fell
to 5-13. -

career that spanned from 1967-69

Walk might prefer most produc-

what life had in store for Walk a

"When I was inducted into the
Hall of Fame in 1999, [Walk] came
in from Phoenix," Hoffman recalled.
"And when I gave my acceptance
presentation, I said, 'Next, I'd like
to thank my roommate, the best
basketball player ever to play at the
University of Florida, Neal Walk.'
And I can assure you that nobody in
the audience objected."
A Little Too Ironic
After eight seasons in the NBA

as Jabbar and Wilt Chamberlain,
Walk retired following the 1976-77
While he may be forever remem-
bered as being the guy taken behind

Suddenly, this once world-class
athlete was confined to a wheel-

strength that helped make him a
star. Walking again would prove
too difficult, due in large part to his

Walk said. "If I was like a foot short-

rate his disability in his message, if
at all possible.

Neal Walk, arguably the greatest player in UF men's basketball his-
tory, boasts school records in single-season scoring (20.8 ppg.) and
rebounding, (15.3) and is the all-time leader in rebounds (1,181).
"He talks about what it's like
to be a great basketball player and
have interests in baseball and swim-
ming," Hoffman said. "He was even
a pretty dam good surfer."
Despite putting public speaking
behind him, Walk continues to work
for the Suns as a historian and archi-
vist. It is a job he thoroughly enjoys,
because it allows him to dabble in
his lifelong passion of photography.
Walk has ridden life's most ex-
treme emotional rollercoaster ride,
but through it all, he has maintained
a simple philosophy.
"There are low points for ev-
erybody all of the time," he said.
"Through adversity, you have to
find out about yourself. It is kind
of like sports. You can't hide. When
you meet adversity, you can deal
with it with a good face or you can
bitch, complain ard whine."
And after hearing the story of
Neal Walk, is there really anything
to complain about?

Roles reverse as recruits hoping UF picks them
By BLAKE BONSA'CK
Alligator Contributing Writer
Recruiting is not just about
five-star blue-chippers, glamorous
campus visits and commitment an-
nouncements on ESPN.
For some prospects, the recruit-
ing process is about hope. Hope for
the opportunity to play football be-
yond their high school years. Hope
to go to a fine academic institution.
Hope to be a part of the team that
they've rooted for all their life.
Such is the case for Monsignor
Pace High's Quinton Andrews,
ranked the No. 41 safety in the coun-
try by Scout.com.
Andrews at 5-foot-11, 191
pounds with a 4.65-second 40-yard
dash is considered a marginal
athlete in comparison to top-ranked
defensive backs, but has earned a
reputation for his instincts and play-
"I wondered if he had the physi-
cal tools to make it on the next level,
but our guys in Florida just rave
about his ability on the field,"
Southeastern Conference recruiting
analyst Scott Kennedy said.
During his senior year for the
Spartans, Andrews compiled 60
tackles, six sacks and -two intercep-
tions while collecting 40 catches for
460 yards and five touchdowns.
He also led his team to a 3A state
championship during his junior
"I'm not the fastest, but I have
enough speed to run to the football
and put me in the position to make
plays," Andrews said. "I think I
bring a lot of toughness and positive
attitude to the team. I'm fun to be
around, on and : tt t i h ld."
Andrews I-aiz b.- ,n ..ffered a
scholarship from West Virginia, but
is holding out on the possibility of
an offer from UF before he makes
"Florida's close to home,"
Andrews said. "The coaching staff
is really cool and I like the respect
that they have for
the game. I have
an idea of where
I want to go, but
I'm going to wait
S Andrews has
Andrews high aspirations,
but is just look-
ing for an opportunity to show what
he's capable of.
"I want to start at safety and be
able to play a little receiver every
now and then," he said. "It really
just depends on whatever will get
me on the field the quickest."
Several other prospects are look-
ing to be offered scholarships.
Three Daytona Beach Mainland
High prospects Matt Lewis, a
6-foot-i, 235-pound linebacker,
Brent Davis, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound
linebacker, and Brian Ellis, a 6-foot-
3, 235-pound tight end hope to
join teammate Avery Atkins at UF.
Atkins, ranked a five-star defensive
back by Scout.com, has orally com-
mitted to the Gators.
In UF's sights is Pompan6
Beach native Walter McFadden, a
6-foot, 175-pound defensive back.
McFadden would join current

Meanwhile, coaches appear
to have soured on prospect Tyller
Roberts, a 6-foot, 190-pound defen-
sive back from Orlando Edgewater
Scholarship offers to someof
these players will be determined by
how many commitments the Gators
receive from higher-ranked recruits
and by how many scholarships UF
wishes to save for next year.

you always run into them."
In reality, Tordi is very humble about
these relationships. He isn't very forthcoming
about them, and coach Pat McMahon wasn't
even aware his player was so well connected.
"That's Justin Tordi. He's a tremendous
personality and gets along with everyone so
well," McMahon said. "You know, Johnny
Damon was a Florida signee years ago. Of
course, he opted to play professionally in-
stead of coming to Florida, and I'm happy for
his successes too."
"It feels not like a fantasy any-
more; it's in reach. It's right there,
so close that I can almost taste it.
It makes you feel good and have a
lot of confidence."
McMahon stresses character as much as
on-field performance to all of his players.
"Humility is a great qualitL, and he has
that. He's very hard on himself," McMahon
said. "He's a very intense player, and he's got
to be able to battle to work through that. He's
very hard on himself offensively at times, so
he's got to continue to grow and work in that
area. And he will."
Tordi says that meeting professional play-
ers has helped his playing ability in college,
and that he doesn't dream of someday play-
ing in the major leagues the way every Little

rors, walks, hit by pitches.
"It's not always the home runs and base
hits that can win baseball games," Tordi said.
"Getting hit by a pitch is the easiest thing tc
do in baseball. You just stand there and let it
"It doesn't hurt," he said. "A lot of people,
say it hurts if it hits the right spot, but for the
most part, if you get hit, you just shake it off. If
gets you on base, helps your on-base percent-
age and gives your team another baserunner
that can lead to a run."
Entering his third season, Tordi under-
stands it might be his last in Gainesville. One
peculiar thing about college baseball is tl 'ii
isn't necessarily a bad thing to not have many
seniors on roster, since players are not drafted
until after their third season.
"We just have to go out there and play
have fun, and it will take care of itself," Tordi
said. "But definitely, we have a chance at tak-
ing the SEC."
"I've grown a dislike for Miami over the
years. Just looking at our roster and atl
we've got, the talent we have, we're going tc
get.them this year and send them home pack-
ing. We're going to take it to Omaha."

Ugly win gets Gators on track
By BRYAN APP .:
Alligator Staff Writer
Perhaps ESPN scheduled the game back in
1996 when Tubby Smith led the Bulldogs to the
Sweet 16. Or maybe the network just forgot the
date of the real Cocktail Party.
Whatever the reason, plenty of hoops fans
throughout the Southeast found themselves
clicking over to the Kentucky-Tennessee tilt
before halftime of UF's drubbing of Georgia on
Despite the not-so-Super Tuesday 23-point
win against one-time rival Georgia, Coach Billy
Donovan insisted the differential was mislead-
"I don't look at it like we beat them badly,"
Donovan said. "I think we earned it."
Dressing 10 freshmen and just six scholarship
players compared to UF's nine and start-
ing a freshman walk-on from Australia, Georgia
came into the game with an obvious talent defi-
Georgia coach Demnis Felton's solution: limit
the number of possessions, by taking each one
deep into the shot clock. Hack, foul and hack
some more to limit easy baskets. Avoid UF's run-
ning style by not pressing on defense and utiliz-
ing a half-court offense.
The strategy held the Gators to nine fewer
field-goal attempts than their season average and
left ESPN with little more than TV-timeout foot-
age of the dancing referee for the highlight reel.
The ultimate result, as freshman forward
Corey Brewer said: "It was kind of ugly. But we
won, sb that's all that matters."
And for Donovan, the win mattered, but per- -.
haps the way his team won meant more.
At the beginning of the season, Donovan said
UF wasn't able to "grind out" wins. Judging by
the numerous utterances of the cliche following Matt Marriott/ Alligator Staff
David Lee and the Gators dismantled Georgia, but Coach Billy

* THE UF WOMEN'S BASKETBALL TEAM
WILL PLAY GEORGIA TONIGHT.
By MICHAEL MAURINO
They can tell you it is just another game, that
all conference games are big. But when rivals
collide and early season control is up for grabs,
the game means much more. That's the situation
tonight when the UF women's basketball team
travels to Athens to meet No. 19 Georgia.
The Gators (12-6, 3-2 Southeastern Conference)
lost their last game, 80-72, to Mississippi on
Sunday. The Gators quickly fell behind in the
loss, only to rally and still lose. UF's weakness
was exposed late, as the Rebels recorded 30 of
their 58 rebounds in the second half.
"I think we know we have a long road
ahead of us, so we're just working on
Coach Carolyn Peck said the rebounding edge
had to do with UF's inside positioning.
"Our problem in the Mississippi game was
that we didn't focus on boxing out," Peck said.
'We need to make sure that. on every shot taken
everyone is finding someone to check out. Or to
make sure that [we are] keeping them from hav-
ing a second chance opportunity."
For UF, the statistics don't lie. The Gators are
7-1 when they win the rebounding battle, 4-6
when they do not. The Gators are also one of two
SEC teams with a negative rebounding margin.
The other, Arkansas, is 2-5 in league play.
Georgia (15-5, 4-2 SEC) has won its last two
games, and has lost only one of its 11 home

Meyer's recruiting success could lure more prospects to join Gators
Who needs the master re-
cruiter when you have
a reputation like the
late Johnny Carson?
In other words, who needs
Ron Zook when your name is
Urban Meyer? For that matter,
who needs a steady recruiting
coordinator like Mike Locksley?
We have seen in the last week
what happens when you answer
tha. questions. Whatever Meyer
is doing (and let's hope it doesn't
involve strippers and all-night
booze fests with lobster dinners
on the side), he is convincing
some highly touted players to
come his way.
While we .won't know with
certainty how good this recruiting
class is for a couple of years, one
thing is crystal-clear: the opinion
of Zook so pales in comparison to
Meyer that it shouldn't come as
a surprise that quality commit-
ments are flowing to the Gators
Gregg Girvan of the big

and UF are all about. Meyer has
already proved that he doesn't
need recruiting advice, but
there's one statement he should
use this weekend to woo a few
more prospects and vault his
2005 class to the top of the rank-
You see these guys I got com-
mitments from last week? Yeah,
those other schools thought they had
them in their pocket, but I snatched
them away. Because I am that good.
Now won't you come play for the
I'm sure Meyer will use a more
subtle approach, but if the Gators
secure a few more recruits and
pull out a surprise or two, he's
got a lock on a top-10 class.
That's better than what Zook
did in his first year. The reason is
clear Zook was not an upgrade
to Steve Spurrier. Meyer, at least
by name if not reputation and
results, is an upgrade to Zook.
There is no other way to measure
