Breakfast motives questioned


* THE IMPACT PARTY ANNOUNCED ITS EX-
ECUTIVE TICKET AT FRIDAY'S GATOR NIGHTS.

By BRIDGET CAREY
Alligator Writer
bcarey@alligator.org

Gator Nights officials are raising eyebrows to possible
foul play with the Impact Party's method of informally
announcing its executive ticket candidates for the Spring
Student Government election.
The Lady Monarchs, a multicultural sorority-hopeful
organization focused on community service, were sched-
uled to serve the traditional free midnight breakfast at
Gator Nights on Friday. Instead, Impact Party members
announced their executive candidates to students before
they plopped the free food onto students' plates.
"It all sounds very fishy to me," said Farrah Morrone,
Gator Nights supervisor and assistant director at the
Office of Student Activities.


UF forward Adrian
Moss will fight through
therapy treatments for
the rest of his life, but
has returned to the
team from a herni-
ated disc. Said Moss: "I
didn't think I was going
to play too much more
this year." See story,
pg. 20.


Morrone wasn't working during the midnight break-
fast but said Impact Student Body presidential candidate
Dennis Ngin told the Gator Nights student manager on
duty that he was there to help the Lady Monarchs.
"I'm really going to be frustrated if someone else
posed as another student organization to promote their
political party," Morrone said when
Student she initially heard about Impact's
G MOvMlntnt involvement.
Impact spokeswoman Jessica
Goodwin, who also holds the liaison officer position
within the Lady Monarchs, said nothing was fishy about
Ngin and Impact Party supporters serving the breakfast.
"Dennis asked to work in association with them,"
Goodwin said. She added the Lady Monarchs were hap-
py to hang around the food court while Ngin introduced
himself to everyone in line waiting for food.
Impact's candidate for vice president, Robert Mack,
and the candidate for treasurer, Elda Auxiliaire, also used

New papers


last 4 years

By STEPHANIE GARRY
Alligator.Staff Writer
smgarry@alligator.org

The U.S. government gave
UF's nearly 3,000 international
students a break Friday, cutting
the paperwork required for stu-
dents and scientists in "sensitive"
fields.
The U.S. Department of
Homeland Security eased visa'
requirements, a move higher
education officials hope will help
counteract a national drop in
foreigners studying in the United
States last year.
"This is a significant step," UF
International Center Dean Dennis
Jett, who is out of the country,
wrote in an e-mail. "It eliminates
the useless repetition of the clear-
ance process which sometimes
stranded people" overseas.
International students who
work in "sensitive scientific and
technical fields," such as engi-
neering, have had to undergo a
security clearance process since
1998, when the Visas Mantis
program was introduced to
discourage the illegal transfer
of technology. The process was
annual, but now students can
use one screening for the length
of their academic program up to
four years.
"This change sends a clear
message that the U.S. highly
encourages those with great sci-
entific minds to explore studying
and working in our country," Asa
Hutchinson, former undersecre-
tary for the department's border
and transportation security, said
in a statement.
UF's College of Engineering
has the highest international
student enrollment in the univer-
sity, with more than 1,000 foreign

cal difficulties.

students making up about 40 per-
cent of UF's total foreign student
enrollment in 2003.
"We think it's going to be
a beneficial step for us," said
Pramod Khargonekar, dean of
UF's College of Engineering.
"We have a number of foreign
students who come to study in
the college, and this will make it
easier for them to extend visas to
come and study."
UF's international student
enrollment dropped 6.8 percent
in Fall 2004, and the number of
new foreign students dropped
even more significantly, nearly
15 percent. Though the decline
is a national trend, UF tries to re-
cruit foreign students to augment
domestic students' college expe-
riences, support programs that
don't have sufficient domestic
demand and sustain research.
Though Jett and Khargonekar
said they agreed that the Mantis
program may
have contribut-
ed to the drop,
they suspect
others factors
played a part as
well.
SGrowing
economies in
China and
India are keeping students in
those countries, and competi-
tion from Europe, Australia and
Canada is diverting international
students from U.S. universities,
Khargonekar said.
"We saw a significant drop of
international students this year,"
Khargonekar said. "Difficulty in
getting visas has been a part of
the problem."
The college regularly receives
e-mails from international stu-
dents who have had visa delays,
oftentimes when they go home
to visit their families and try to
return, Khargonekar said. Many
of those students are likely to
fall under the Mantis program,
he said.

Legendary jazz orchestra to
honor founder's 100th
Gainesville and Frank Sinatra
now have something in common,
and it isn't a collection of fedoras.
The city will join Sinatra in the
ranks of hosts to the Count Basie
Orchestra, to celebrate what would
be the 100th birthday of its founder,
William "Count" Basie.
The concert is also a timely
celebration of Basie's great im-
pact on black history. During the
1930s, Basie was one of the only
black band leaders, and along
with contemporaries such as Duke
Ellington, he helped define jazz
music. His piano playing shaped
modem jazz with his trademark
compingg," which is a syncopated
and precise style of play.
Basie also pioneered musical
integration, recording and per-
forming with white artists such
as Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett.
Basie formed his orchestra and
toured extensively in the South
amid great success and deeply
divisive segregation they were
denied stay in certain hotels or
service in restaurants.
However, Basie often played to
all-white audiences.
"The impact was enormous,"

The Plaza of the Americas was converted
to a wedding pavilion Monday, where Dean of
Students Gene Zdziarski and his wife renewed
their vows as part of the Public Relations
Student Society of America's Renew Your
Vows campaign.
"It is important to convey to students the
importance of making a commitment to some-
thing, whether it is a wife or academic hon-
esty," Zdziarski said after the ceremony held
before a dozen students.
His wife, Cheri, said, "Making a pledge is
not just about academic integrity. It is about
making a commitment to a life-long value sys-
tem of integrity and honesty."
Interfraternity Council President John Dicks
said he came out to support both Zdziarski
and the honor code.
"It's kind of fun, kind of cool," he said.


PRSSA, in its Gators have High Standards
campaign, set up tables across the plaza
encouraging students to follow Zdziarski's
example. In exchange for signing the honor
code, students received a pocket-sized copy of
it, which gives discounts at local businesses.
"UF is a community where academic
dishonesty is not acceptable," said PRSSA
President Ashley Zandy.
Zandy is one of five members of PRSSA's
Bateman Team who helped organize the event.
The vows renewal was the peak event of the
yearlong campaign. More than 500 students
signed pledge cards during the event.
"The card is just a symbol of truth- and
honesty," political science sophomore Marvin
Simeon said shortly after he signed. "Signing
the pledge just showed my support for some-
thing I already believed in."
The campaign will continue over the next
few weeks as Bateman Team members talk to
classes about academic honesty and integrity.

Students do' with Elvis


* HELD IN HONOR OF VALENTINE'S
DAY, THE WEDDINGS WEREN'T LEGAL.

By LINDSAY TAULBEE
Alligator Writer
Itaulbee@alligator.org

Students took comfort Monday in know-
ing that what happens in Gainesville stays
in Gainesville.
In honor of Valentine's Day, an Elvis
Presley impersonator, eager to join stu-
dents in not-so-holy matrimony, greeted
those passing through the Reitz Union
Colonnade.
The Reitz Union Board hosted the mock
weddings for anyone who was interested.
Couples received Ring Pops, phony mar-
riage certificates and a photograph with
Elvis to commemorate the event.
Jaclyn Rubio, co-chairwoman of the
board's special events committee, said the
marriages were just for fun.
"It's Valentine's Day; we thought it'd be
cute," she said.
During the three hours Elvis was on the
colonnade, between 30 and 40 couples took


the plunge, Rubio said.
The day started off rocky, as students were
unsure of what to make of the situation.
"It seems like people have commitment
phobia," she said jokingly.
Later, students warmed .g the idea, and
several large groups came to exchange vows,
she said.
Elvis, played by UF student Butch Tanner,
approached UF athletic training students
Bianca Villa and Alexandra Bayona, who
agreed to be "married."
On They joked they were going
CaSmpu through with it because their boy-
friends wouldn't marry them.
Holding a bouquet of plastic flowers, the
friends laughed as Elvis, dressed in a red-
and-white pantsuit, sunglasses, a black wig
and zebra-striped platform shoes, began the
ceremony.
"Do you, Bianca, swear to uphold the fin-
est laws and to keep her as close as possible
and not let her talk to strangers?" he asked.
.Tanner affirmed the shoes were an essen-
tial part of the outfit.
"That was something Elvis held very
close to his heart," he said.

Shakur is a former Black Panther
and civil-rights activist, as well as
the mother of rapper Tupac Shakur.
Jasmine Guy, who wrote the biogra-
phy of Afeni Shakur's life, will ap-
pear with her.
This is the first time BSU has
booked two female speakers to
-appear on the same stage. Elda
Auxiliaire, executive director for
Black History Month events, said
BSU chose to book the pair because of
their perceived ability to reach audi-
ences of all ages.
"In planning Black History Month
in early summer, we wanted to pick
a speaker who would touch people,"
Auxiliaire said.
Russell Simmons was last year's


keynote speaker for Black History
Month.
"They all bring a message,"
Auxiliaire said. "The fact is that the
things that happened in'the past
shape our future."
The topics of the speech are still
muknown, but Auxiliaire
said she did not see
this as a problem.
"Because the
students do not
Snow what
will be talked
S" 1 about, the
Black History students may
,Month be impacted
more," she
said. "We try to bring people who can
touch everyone's lives."
Auxiliaire expects the 845-seat
auditorium to fill. The event will
also include a question-and-answer
session.
It will begin at 6 p.m. and is free to
the public.

Auctioned dates raise heartfelt money for relief


Mike Lamire, Kamphrey, Holly Allen and Andy Jean enjoy dinner with the highest bidders for their
eBay auction. The group auctioned the dates to raise money for tsunami relief efforts in Asia.


* DUE TO AN EBAY SNAFU, THE
AUCTIONS ENDED EARLY.

By KYLIE CRAIG
Alligator Writer
kcraig@alligator.org

Four UF students who auctioned
themselves as dates on eBay raised
more than $250 for tsunami relief but
not without a few technical difficul-
ties.
The students were up for grabs as
Valentine's Day dates to raise money
for the cause, but two hours before
bidding was set to end, eBay pulled
their auctions off its site.
Mike Lemire, organizer of the auc-
tion, said eBay pulled the auctions
because it wanted the students to use
the Web site's own charity program to
collect the funds.
Lemire said he called several times
before starting the auction to ask eBay
for permission but that the company
didn't respond until a week after the
auction's start.
"I didn't go through it because they
take away 10 percent to cover their
fees," Lemire said, adding that he felt


the amount was too significant.
He also said stopping the auction
two hours before its ending time had
a negative effect on the amount raised
because many wait to enter bids.
"I had e-mails throughout the
week where people said they weren't
going to bid until the last minute,"
Lemire said.
Ultimately, the students decided
not to let the technical problems keep
them from following through.
Lemire said he contacted people
with the highest bids at the time the
auction was stopped and negotiated
donation amounts to determine who
would win the date.
The students and the winning bid-
ders all went out for a Valentine's Day
dinner and movie Monday night.
Lemire said everyone was pleased
with how it turned out.
S"No one was left out, and we had
a great time because we were all
there for a good cause," he said. "We
still raised money that wasn't there
before."
Despite what happened, Lemire
said he is looking into starting another
auction to. raise even more money for
the cause.


Blue Key members serve Valentine's cheer to homeless


By LINDSAY TAULBEE
Alligator Writer
Itaulbee@alligator.org

On a night when many in town were
making reservations and heading out to their
favorite restaurants, a few UF students instead
prepared and served dinner for about 35 of
Gainesville's homeless community.
With food donated by Kash n' Karry and
Phi Kappa Tau fraternity, five Florida Blue Key
members dished out pasta and meat sauce,


garlic bread, rice, vegetables and brownies
Monday night at the St. Francis House home-
less shelter in downtown Gainesville.,
Jason Goldman, FBK service director, said
few other volunteers from the community
had signed up to help with food preparation
Monday.
"They get a lot of help, but no one else
wanted to do it on Valentine's Day," he said.
"It's a nice way to spend your Valentine's Day,
helping other people."


Goldman said he hoped to reach out to the
community while helping to give UP a better
name.
-He said those who volunteered hope-
fully will benefit from a broader perspective
-of Gainesville and get a better
Student understanding of the realities
ACt VISsR of the place in which they
live.
Ozell Boyd, volunteer coordinator for St.
Francis House, said he appreciated FBK's ef-


forts.
He said the shelter always needs volun-
teers to help perform a wide variety of tasks
throughout the day
"We really need some good long-term vol-
unteers people that don't mind helping out
the community," he said.
Those interested in volunteering at St.
Francis House may reach Boyd at 378-
9079, extension 319, or at coordinator@be

Ballot boost

Online voting would raise

turnout, increase access
W hen students gather in March to determine their rep-
resentatives in Student Government, they also will
weigh in on an issue that will drastically affect future
SG elections: online voting.
And though there are outspoken opponents of online voting-
- some of whom have valid points the possible benefits far
outweigh the negatives.
The immediate benefit of online voting would be increased
voter turnout. The easier a process gets, the more likely college
students are to participate.
Under the online voting system, students could surf over to
the voting Web site whenever they pleased and be in and out in
a few minutes at the most. Furthermore, according to Student
Sen. Adam Roberts, SG's technology cabinet director, it's possi-
ble online voting would be open 24 hours during election days.
Instead of going out of their way to queue up in the hot sun,
students would be able to vote at any time during voting days
from the privacy of their homes. And the evidence says that
students will take advantage of this. According to the Chronicle
of Higher Education, online voting has produced significant
increases in student election turnout at universities such as
Clemson University, Emory University and Boston College.
In addition, online voting would save money. Last year's
election cost more than $20,000, while the expected cost of oper-
ating the program would be about $2,000 which includes 24-
hour monitoring from Accelerated Data Works, the company
that developed the voting software.
The numbers speak for themselves, but there still are other
benefits, including easier access to elections for disabled stu-
dents and reduced waste due to elimination of paper ballots.
Of course, concerns about the security of online voting are
valid. While there is no way that the possibility of voter fraud,
including hacking and block voting, can be removed from the
online voting prociz solutions to help lessen this possibility
have been discussed by SG and Accelerated Data Works.
Hacking certainly is an issue in a university with as large
and tech-savvy a student body as UFs, but the chances of this
happening can be limited by the process' regulationby an inde-
pendent party such as Accelerated Data Works. Another layer
of security could be added by the separation of the voting Web
page and the database where the information would be stored,
as well as keeping a backup server that could compare data
with the original in order to detect tampering, Roberts said.
Another concern is that the system will make it easier for
organizations to require their members to vote for particular
candidates. It is possible that leaders of these organizations
could collect GatorLink IDs and passwords from members and
then use those to vote for the same candidates.
But Roberts and other members of SG have worked to deter-
mine ways in which this practice could be discouraged. For in-
stance, individual computers identified by their IP addresses
could be allowed to vote only a few times within a specified
period of time. Exceptions could be made so students could still
vote on multi-user computers such those in CIRCA labs.
Even better, the voting process could require students to
answer a security question based on information already in
ISIS, such as their mother's maiden name or their place of birth.
Students still could then be coerced to vote for a candidate
but only if someone was standing over their shoulder.
Ultimately, however, students have to take responsibility for
their vote. If they allow themselves to be coerced, not much can
be done.
The simple fact is that online voting will greatly simplify the
voting process, which is an important step toward increasing
student participation.

Column

Republican chooses a blue Valentine


owie,
Valentine's Day has passed, but my love for
you remains. In the past year, we've been through
good times and bad, primaries and elections, scandal and
intrigue. But, in the end, two things remain: love and
politics. While we never agree, times change, and so do
people. You now run the Democratic National Committee,
and while I'm still a Republican, I can't help but love your
plan for your party.
You plan to rebuild your party and return it to the
liberal roots that created your base. The hippie liberalism
of the past has been abandoned by the American public,
but the Democratic Party clings to old standards like a
captain to his sinking ship. Growing numbers of citizens
are identifying themselves as Republicans, not because of
trendy campaign rhetoric, but because of a dramatic shift
in the perception of American values. While you cling to
your first love the Democratic Party -America moves
forward into the future with the Republican Party's clear
vision for the next century.
You say you want to build the Democratic Party back
up from the bottom. I've always loved your management
style. While you spend time with the common man, the
non-voter, the apathetic citizen, your party's base of real
voters will dwindle from neglect. You'll court the unem-
ployed, the felon and the disenfranchised, the people who
need the attention of the party but don't care to vote. Your
love "for the people" is profound, and I'm sure that 50-
year-old who never has voted before will go to the polls
because you asked him to.
Your bid for the Democratic Party's nomination for
president was admirable; you built a base of supporters
who never had voted and raised huge sums of money
from average citizens. Your armies of supporters couldn't


turn out the vote for you, though,
and as we continue the eternal
battle between Republican and
Democrat, it's heartening for me
S to see the huge numbers of people
who are willing to campaign but
Allison Cullin not to vote.
Strategery Sessions It's clear that America is chang-
letters@alligator.org ing, and the past liberalism has be-
gun to fade away as young citizens
realize the value of conservative
fiscal and moral values. Time has changed the views of
the majority of voters. While we work for the future, you
remember the past glories of your party. It's time for you
to realize that the future of the Democratic Party has to be
with the mainstream of America. ,
The times we face demand leadership within the par-
ties and throughout the nation. While you choose to lead
your party to the left, you choose to ignore the needs of the
people you claim to serve.
Remember, it's hard to work for the future wheri you
cling to your past. We'll see what happens with the future,
but the changes you look for will only push America fur-
ther to the right, and I love you for it.
While I love your campaign style and your general
charisma, I love you most because you'll make my life
easier. Come election season, the time again will come to
do battle. You'll bring out your army of Deaniacs, and my
party will send out its seasoned veterans. We'll see then
what the map looks like.
judging by your past failures, I think I'll be celebrating
again as I gaze at a map that's redder than ever before.

Letters to the Editor
Board's decision leaves much to be done
Editor: The Florida Board of Governors
should be commended for exercising its con-
stitutional responsibilities in turning down
the chiropractic program at Florida State
University. This program had been approved
by the Legislature but had not been authorized
by the board. Its constitutionality is question-
able given that the 11th Amendment to the
state Constitution, passed in 2002, says, "The
Board of Governors shall operate, regulate,
control and be fully responsible for the man-
agement of the whole university system."
In dealing with the proposal, the board
shows it accepts its constitutional authority
over the university system. In a constitutional
sense, it did not matter whether it accepted or
rejected the proposal. The important point is


that it recognized and exercised its authority
over a major higher education issue.
Although the chiropractic program has
been turned down, the legislation authorizing
the program called for an annual appropria-
tion of $9 million to go to FSU to be used as the
university wished until the chiropractic pro-
gram was implemented. After the board's ac-
tion, there is no justification for continuing this
appropriation, and it should be rescinded.
Other governance issues still need clarifi-
cation. As a result of efforts by Johnnie Byrd,
former speaker of the House, the Legislature
has approved $52 million for an Alzheimer's
Center at the University of South Florida
named for Byrd's father, though the board had
not authorized it. The constitutionality of such
action obviously is questionable.


With the passage of the 11th Amendment,
a number of actions by the legislative and
the executive branches of Florida govern-
ment appear to be inconsistent with the state
Constitution. A private, not-for-profit orga-
nizationr called Floridians for Constitutional
Integrity has been formed to ask the courts to
determine the legality of such actions.
As Floridians and Americans, we are gov-
erned by laws -both constitutional and statu-
tory. At the heart of this university governance
issue is the fact that constitutional laws over-
ride or supersede statutory laws. This is why
the courts are being asked to rule on a matter
which, to many, appears to be quite dear.
E. T. York
Chancellor Emeritus, State University System
of Florida


Some offensive words can't be defended
Editor: I am shocked and offended that
columnist Jason Levitt is not shocked and of-
fended. It is one thing to uphold the values of
the First Amendment and the marketplace of
ideas. It is an entirely different thing to defend
a man who compares the innocent victims of
Sept. 11, 2001 to the Nazis and actually con-
dories their deaths.
Levitt says opinions like this that stray from
the mainstream "signal a strong and healthy
public sphere." Forgive me, but I believe that
anyone who says a secretary with three kids
working at her job on a Tuesday morning de-
serves to have a 747 smash into her office does
not signal a healthy public sphere.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Parties miss financial report deadline


By NEIL HUGHES
Alligator-Writer
nhughes@alligator.org

Only three parties made the Monday.
deadline for parties to submit their
expenses for the upcoming Student
Government elections.
The Impact, Voice, Strike Force and
Phoenix Parties failed to submit their re-
ports to the SG supervisor of elections by
5 p.m., according to public records given
to the Alligator on Monday.
According to SG statutes, all regis-
tered parties are required to submit item-
ized weekly finance reports. Monday
was the first deadline.
"I was not contacted regarding any
fliers or any regulations," Impact presi-
dential candidate Dennis Ngin said,
"which is kind of weird since my phone
number is readily available."
Traditionally, the campaign treasurer
is responsible for submitting the finan-
cial reports, who, in the case of Impact,
would be UF quarterback Chris Leak.
The SG Election Commission, along


with supervisor Ali Blye, are respon-
sible for dictating the penalty for failing
to meet the deadline, according to SG
statutes.
Parties are required to submit infor-
mation even if they have incurred no
expenses up until the deadline.
Impact member
Andre Samuels said
his party did not have
,any expenses to report,
and the missed dead-
line was a communi-
cation error.
"Once we start
Samuels making profession-
ally made things, then
we'll-have something to report," Samuels
said.
Blye refused comment Monday, but
told the Alligator on Sunday she con-
tacted parties about an earlier dispute
regarding the violation of advertising
rules.
However, Christian Duque, chairman
of the Voice Party, disputed Blye's com-
ment, stating that he had not been con-


tacted regarding either the advertising
rules or the finance report deadline.
"It's no one's fault but ours, but we
don't really have a clue as to what to turn
in or anything like that," Duque said.
The Phoenix Party, which has since
morphed into Impact, also failed to
submit finance reports. Samuels said
Phoenix had not made any expenses and
added that the party name would likely.
be retracted at some point.
The Mad Hatter Party did not submit
a hard copy of its report before 5 p.m.,
but Scott Gilton, the party's presidential
candidate, said it was e-mailed to Blye
at 5 p.m.
"We didn't know the proper format of
it until today when we got our hands on
the statutes," Gilton said.
The Gator, Progress and Block par-
ties submitted on time, as well as in-
dependent senate candidate Alexander
Hadjilogiou.
Parties will be expected to submit
reports every Monday when class is in
session until SG elections, to take place
March 15 and 16, have concluded.


Nights nonpartisan

BREAKFAST, from page 1
the breakfast line as a meet-and-greet and to
make their candidacies official to the public.
Morrone said she doesn't have a problem
with parties setting up informational booths
or conducting a meet-and-greet with passers-
by, but she doesn't want official campaign an-
nouncements in front of a podium beckoning
student attention.
And unless all parties running can be
equally represented at the free; tuition-fund-
ed Gator Nights, she said it might imply the
union has a party preference.
"I don't want to act like we're affiliated
with one party or another," Morrone said.
But volunteers who dished out were not
sporting any Impact-particular political gear.
The Lady Monarchs would have shared
their breakfast volunteer time "for any candi-
date that approached them," Goodwin said:
Morrone said it has been commonplace
in past elections for political parties to serve
breakfast as a grassroots method of cam-
paigning with her prior approval.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Vote may


soon go


to Web

By LINDSAY PETER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Impact Party leaders hosted
a discussion forum Monday
expressing their support for a
change to voting procedures.
About 20 students assembled
in the Reitz Union listened to
positives and negatives for a
Spring election ballot initiative
that, if passed, will implement
online voting for future Student
Government elections.
If approved, the new system
would allow students, even those
studying abroad, to vote using
their GatorLink e-mail account any
time during the two-day election.
Human interaction at polls
would be eliminated, reducing
ballot-related error, said Student
Sen. Andrew Hoffman.
Risks in implementing online
voting, according to forum par-
ticipants, include computers pos-
sibly crashing,
the network link
disconnecting
and authenticat-
ing users.
Experts from
Accelerated
Data Works, de-
Hoffman signer of the on-
line voting pro-
gram SG has already purchased,
plan to monitor the system during
the voting period, Hoffman said:
The database would not be di-
rectly accessible from the Internet,
which would prohibit access to
hackers, he added.
Online voting would also re-
duce costs of hiring poll workers
and renting the ballot boxes and
voting booths, according to SG
documents, which currently cost
as much as $40,000 for each elec-
tion. Online voting would reduce
that cost to about $2,000 for one
election.
Block voting, an individual
or group voting for multiple stu-
dents, is one concern that forum
participants agreed cannot be
prevented. However, the practice
violates the Student Conduct
Code, and offenders could face
judicial action and even expulsion
if caught.
All voting would remain
anonymous, but students would
receive an electronic confirmation
code to verify their vote.
Hybrid voting, combining on-
line and ballot voting, was tried
in Fall 2001 without any appar-
ent technology-related problems,
but costs would not be reduced,
Hoffman said.
Forty-five other universities
that use online voting for stu-
dent government elections were
contacted, and the response was
overwhelmingly positive, he said.
"This initiative will allow stu-
dents to vote for change by chang-
ing the way they vote," Hoffman
said.

8, ALLIGATOR N TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2005


Junior falls back on faith


MEN'S, from page 20


had to lie on his stomach and
watch TV all night. Rest became
the prescription of choice. Some
days he could practice; some
days he couldn't.
But the worst part about the
injury was its unpredictability.
One day Moss would practice
'Iat full speed, twist his body in
every imaginable fashion and
not feel a shred of pain. The next
day he would do the same thing
and his leg would not comply.
"They've given me all the
anti-inflammatories and
pills, but I have a strong
faith, You go through
things for a reason and
God's my pain pill. If He
wants me to have the-
pain, then I'll have it. If He
doesn't want me to have
the pain, then He'll take it
from me."
Adrian Moss
U F forward

"God, he was hurt so bad,"
Brewer said. "People don't re-
alize how bad he was hurting.
But he came to practice and was
working as hard as ever. I don't
know how he does it. I really ap-
preciate it."
Moss will never be the same
again. He says he feels fine, but
i\the herniated disc likely will*rag
him for the rest of his life.
He'll always continue his


therapy, and, of course, the
stretching. Moss stretches his
legs, especially his hamstrings,
every night before he goes to
sleep and every morning after he
wakes. Still, despite it all, on any
day, at any time, the disc could
flare up again. Moss has options
to dull the pain, but he'd rather
just head-butt the ailment.
"They've given me all the
anti-inflammatories and pills,
but I have a strong faith," Moss
said. "You go through things for
a reason and God's my pain pill.
If He wants me to have the pain,
then I'll have it. If He doesn't
want me to have the pain, then
He'll take it from me."
Another alternative would
be surgery at season's end. But
Moss won't go there, either.
"After basketball I have a lot
of living to do," Moss said. "If I
get a bad doctor and he messes
up my surgery, I won't be able to
pick up my son when I have my
son. That's a lot more important
to.me than playing basketball."
Moss has widened his life's
horizons and has seemingly
burst pain's threshold. But for
now, he's set on basketball. He
admits he's rusty, but unless
his condition worsens, Moss
expects to play 20-25 minutes by
season's end.
"I'm pumped 'cause I'm feel-
ing no pain," he said. "I'm back
to being the old Adrian all ex-
cited and jumping around."
Moss' role will likely be one
of energy and motivation.
"I told my guys we'd use
him as a Band-Aid," Coach Billy
Donovan said.
The hurt has become the
healer.


Matt Marriott/ Alligator Staff
Second baseman Adam Davis and the Gators might seem far better than Florida A&M at first
glance, but both teams have struggled with errors. Davis has recorded two of UF's 10 errors
this season.
FAMU coach Durant: UF 'a top-20 team'


BASEBALL, from page 20


including a 11-5 loss in Gainesville: good for
third in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference. The
Gators have a 12-0 record in the all-time series
between the teams.
Junior pitcher Bryan Ball said the Gators
aren't looking ahead to the Miami series.
"We're not worried about Miami right now;
we're worried about Florida A&M," Ball said.
"That's who we play first. We're not even think-
ing about Miami right now."
Sophomore second baseman Adam Davis
echoed those sentiments.


"Those guys are on that team, playing
Division I baseball. They had to do something
right to get there," Davis said. "I'm sure they
have some kind of baseball ability. Everything
can go right for them and they can win just as
easily as we can win."
Will the Gators go from being favorites to-
night to underdogs this weekend?
"People make it out that way, but that's defi-
nitely not how we feel whatsoever," Davis said.
"I would venture to say that 90 percent of the
people that are in the stands don't feel that way
either. They know how we play, the ability our
guys have. On paper, we're just as comparable to
them as they are to us. I don't see it that way."

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2005 U ALLIGATOR, 19


2002: Sweet season soured by UM


By TIM CASEY
Alligator Writer
tcasey@alligator.org

During -Coach Pat
McMahon's debut season at
UF in 2002, his baseball team
hosted an NCAA Regional post-
season tournament for the first
time since 1998.
"It was our first club here,"
McMahon said Monday. "A
group of young men; I can't tell
you how much they have meant
to our program; A veteran
group. A lot of them hadn't re-
ally played that much, but they
played their hearts out and put-
together an outstanding season
in so many ways.
"I'm so proud of those clubs
and what they have done,"
McMahon said.
His team finished second in
the Southeastern Conference
Eastern Division with a 20-10
conference record, and entered
the Regional tournament with a
43-17 record overall.
The No. 1-seeded Gators
crushed No. 4 seed Bethune-
Cookman twice, but lost to
Miami 7-2 in a Saturday after-
noon matchup.
On Sunday, June 2, the Gators
once again met the Hurricanes
on the diamond.
Current UF senior Mike Pete
pitched the first four innings, al-
lowing four earned runs.
Kevin Coleman pitched 4.2
innings in relief, giving up five
earned runs.
Keith Ramsey entered the

Pitcher Connor Falkenbach is one of just a handful of Gators left
from 2002's team that lost to Miami in the NCAA Regional.


game in the ninth after Coleman
allowed four runs that tied the
game at 10-10.
Ramsey did not allow a bat-
ter to reach base in the ninth or
tenth inning, setting the .stage
for a dramatic ending in the bot-


tom of the inning.
"We won an extra-innings
game, the first one, in order to
play the second," McMahon
said. "We needed Mark Kiger's
home run to win, and what a
great, great win it was."


Kiger led-off the tenth with a
walk-off home run to left field,
giving the Gators a chance to
advance to the College World
Series if they could defeat
Miami again that evening.
"It was so hot. Our guys bat-
tled through the first series play-
ing late, late in the evening, and
our guys showed tremendous
determination, tremendous grit
and heart," McMahon said.
Corsaletti would pinch hit
again in the second game, sin-
gling up the middle in the sev-
enth inning. The Gators took a
5-4 lead in the top of the inning.
"Those were two of the
most intense games I've been
involved in: two-outstanding ef-
forts, two outstanding games,"
McMahon said. "We battled our
way through the loser's bracket
to be.successful."
Miami tied the game in the
bottom of the seventh, leading
to an even score entering the
ninth. UF scored two runs in the
top of the inning on one hit and
one error, but left two valuable
runners on base.
With two outs, third base-
man Kevin Howard singled to
center field, setting the table for
left fielder Jim Burt.
Burt knocked a double to
left-center field, scoring both
runners and giving Miami an 8-
7 win and a trip to Omaha.
"That club, I'm so proud of
what they achieved, in play-
ing themselves into hosting a
Regional," McMahon said. "It
was phenomenal."


CONTROL, from page 20

ter another early postseason exit.
While the season has just be-
gun, UF has a chance this week- a
end to get some sort of revenge
on Miami. The stakes are much
lower, but not to the Gators.
You never know if the baseball
gods will once again pair UF and
Miami this postseason, so this
could be the last chance for those
few seniors who have witnessed,
every loss.
Jeff Corsaletti, Connor
Falkenbach, Mike Pete and
Tommy Boss are the only Gators
who have endured the entire
Miami debacle from the start.
The first loss was also the most
unexpected. In 2002, the Gators
were on top of the baseball world.
The heavily favored Gators were
playing in Gainesville. The match-
up against Miami was supposed
to be little more than a gateway
to the College World Series. Until
Miami won. In the ninth inning of
the final game. From behind.
The next two years the Gators
would travel to Coral Gables as
underdogs and the result was
the same. Miami: Advances. UF:
Maybe next year.
The Gators still have to
face Florida A&M today, and
McMahon will tell you that the
team is focused on the Rattlers.
Sorry, but that's just not pos-
sible. Not when the Gators have
been waiting for a Miami rematch
since June of 2004. And 2003. And
2002.

Tough junior stays strong for team

E ADRIAN MOSS SAID HE DIDN'T THINK HE
WOULD PLAY TOO MUCH MORE THIS YEAR.

By LOUIS ANASTASIS--

Adrian Moss struggled to find the right analogy.
"Have you sprained your ankle and have it balloon like
a grapefruit?" Moss asked a reporter.
"No," replied the reporter.
"Have you ever sprained your ankle?" Moss asked
again.
"Yes," replied the reporter.
"You know how you have the sharpness of that?" Moss
asked. "Imagine eight times worse than that."
That's the best way Moss a junior forward for the
Gators can describe the pangs of his
herniated disc. The disc began bulging
and pressing against the nerves in the
side of his right leg early this season.
The result? Sharp overwhelming jolts
of excruciating pain.
Moss began feeling the pain so often
that he stopped practicing with the team.
Brewer "I really didn't think I was going to
play too much more this year," he said.
Last week the pain subsided. A MRI scan revealed that
his disc was healing. Thursday, Moss survived a team
practice and was cleared to play by team doctors. SatulcdaU.
after missing seven consecutive games, Moss returned to
the hardwood against.Tennessee. The experience lasted just
three minutes, but Moss managed to score a pair of points.
His impact, however, transcended the stat sheet.
"He's a glue guy," UF guard Corey Brewer said. "When
he comes in he's going to bring the energy and the little
things.He's gonna knock people out. He's the enforcer and
we really need that."
For months, UF missed that Red Bull-on-legs-type
presence. But it was one of those very legs that ultimately
stapled Moss to the sidelines. Nick West/ Alligator Staff
One night, the pain worsened to the point that Moss UF forward Adrian Moss will fight through therapy his whole

Another rival

emerges for UF

Painful. Gut-wrenching. Harrowing.
No, I'm not reminiscing about the
Ron Zook era.
I'm talking about a baseball team that is
in dire need of redemption this weekend.
It's a team that has been through it all
*over the last three years, only to watch its
season crushed by the Ibis.
When you're asked to name UF'l best
rivalries, baseball may not be on the tip of
your tongue.
But after a couple of football foes,
(Florida State,
Tennessee) you get
the ugliest engage-
ment in town.
Just a week ago,
I wrote about how
desperately the bas-

Drew's Control Kentucky.

And it's not even
close.
While the Wildcats have handed it to

hasn't meant the season for UF
Since Pat McMahon took the baseball
coaching reigns in 2002, the Gators have

Gators not rattled by prospect of facing Florida A&M


By TIM CASEY
Alligator Writer
tcasey@alligator.org

After winning their opening weekend series in a
somewhat sloppy fashion, the Gators host Florida A&M
tonight at McKethan Stadium. UF will attempt to solidify.
its defense and jump-start the bats in a game that features
two young starting pitchers.
While the FAMU game might appear an easy win,
Coach Pat McMahon's players say they are not looking
ahead to the upcoming weekend series against Miami.
"One of out goals is to play our game, and we're still
working hard to figure out some things that we need to
do to get better," McMahon said Monday. "That's what
we're practicing hard today to do, to continue to improve
to what we do tomorrow night.
"'m anxious to see how we stay focused and respond


to that," he said. "That's a good test for us in a lot of dif-
ferent ways."
The Gators (2-1) are slated to start freshman Stephen
Locke, a 6-foot-1 left-hander out of King High School in
Tampa.
"We're not worried about Miami right now;
we're worried about Florida A&M. That's who
we play first. We're not even thinking about
Miami right now."


FAMU is expected to counter with Clearwater native
Mike Tavernier, a 5-foot-lO right-handed freshman (0-1,
6.1 IP, 9.95 ERA, 4 K).


"We're just not swinging the bat," Florida A&M coach
Joe Durant said Monday.
When told of UF's defensive struggles last weekend
against Charleston Southern, Durant said it sounded like
his Rattlers. FAMU has committed 25 errors to start the
season while averaging only two runs per game.
"That's the way we've been playing, errors and no
hits," Durant said. "Florida is a top-20 team. That's prob-
ably just first-game jitters. I voted for them."
UF has committed 10 errors and has hit four batters in
three games.
"They're probably going to be mad," Durant said. "I
kinda hoped they'd beat Charleston Southern. We just
have to come play a competitive game and hope they take
it easy on us."
The Rattlers (0-9) finished last season with a 22-30 record,.
