Search still on
for UF student
By ELIZABETH PRANN
The whereabouts of the 24-year-bld UF exchange stu-
dent vacationing in Costa Rica for Spring Break remain a
mystery as his father and friends continue their search.
In an e-mail update sent by friend and classmate Imogen
Wells, she stated the possibility that Brendan Kieran
Dobbins drowned has almost been ruled out as of Sunday.
"At day nine, it is becoming less likely," she said.
Dobbins was reportedly last seen by a local man walk-
ing on a beach in Tamarindo at 7 a.m.
the morning of March 4. When he failed
to show up for.an agreed meeting with
his travel companions, four fellow UF
exchange students, later that morning,
they reported him missing.
The team of friends plus Dobbins'
father, Brian, who flew in from their na-
Dobbins ive Australia, took part in an aerial and
ground search with dogs over the weekend, she said.
The students' initial search reports were dismissed by
the U.S. Embassy because they were Australian citizens.
But after clarification of their status as exchange students
from the United States and verification of their visas, they
were able to register their missing friend with local police,
according to another e-mail sent by Wells last week.
Along with Dobbins' father, the consular general of the
Australian Embassy in Mexico also arrived Thursday night,
Searchers met with the Canadian Consulate, which
handles the affairs of Australian citizens in Costa Rica on
About 20 members of local law enforcement joined the
search Saturday but have found nothing so far.

IRHA event brings laughs
By AMY HANNA
Alligator Contributing Writer
Comedian Steve Hofstetter performed
for an energetic crowd of about 100
at Orange & Brew on Monday night.
Hofstetter's appearance was part of
the Inter-Residence Hall Association's
Residence Hall Week festivities.
Event director Paul Einsenlen said he
has wanted to bring Hofstetter to UF since
he first heard of him about a year and a
half ago. In addition to touring colleges
all over the country, Hofstetter writes a
weekly column of humorous observations
"I saw him as an up-and-coming col-
lege comedian," Einsenlen said.
If not from CollegeHumor.com, UF
students might recognize his name from
thefacebook.com. Hofstetter declared that
he is on a quest to make 100,000 friends on
the popular Web site. Using his alumnus
status from Columbia University, he has
already gotten more than 80,000 friends,
and more than 800 of them are at UF.
When Hofstetter asked who in the
room was on thefacebook.com, most of the
students cheered. When he asked who in
the room was both a member of the Web
site and was listed as Hofstetter's friend,
roughly one-third of the room responded.
"That makes me the king of pathetic-
ness," Hofstetter said.
Technology is a critical part of
Hofstetter's routine. Hofstetter, dubbed
"The Thinking Man's Comic" on his Web
site, joked that AOL Instant Messenger has
become a necessary part of life,
Never block a girl on AIM, he said,
because she will know. He joked that you
could walk up to a girl on the street, stab
her, and mention that you blocked her, and
she would just get up and say, "What? You
"It's so great that random people
are willing to be his friend. I'm his
friend already, actually. I'm sure
he knows me well."
Hofstetter said he believes things like
thefacebook.com have made college stu-
dents less social. His original quest was
to get 10,000 friends on the Web site, but
after he achieved that goal in two weeks,
he made the goal tougher.
"I get hate e-mail because people
think I'm ruining the purity of facebook,"
Journalism sophomore Mara Sloan said
she is impressed by Hofstetter's quest.
"It's so great that random people are
willing to be his friend," Sloan said. "I'm
his friend already, actually. I'm sure he
knows me well."

Director of Student Activities to depart after 19 years

will keep their Gainesville house in hope of retiring there.
"We'll be back visiting quite a bit. We really like this
place," she said.
Her husband, E. Stevens Beeland, is a senior fundraiser
for the UF College of Engineering and has received sever-
al job offers over the last several years, which he's turned
down because of her job, Beeland said.
"This is his turn," she said. "It's an incredible oppor-
tunity for him."
In Maryland, he will be the assistant dean for external
relations of the engineering school. The university has
promised her a job, too, though she's not sure exactly
what it will entail.
Beeland began her career at UF as an
undergraduate studying printmaking,

Speakers talk domestic violence
Casey Anderson / Alligator Staff
UF senior Erin McDonough shares her story as a victim of do-
mestic abuse at a forum held by Peaceful Paths and GPD.
By ELIZABETH PRANN
Speakers ranging from a UF student to a Gainesville
Police detective addressed domestic violence issues,
specifically focused on how college students can pre-
vent and deal with the situations Monday night.
The group of about 10 women heard the story of
UF senior Erin McDonough, a victim of domestic vio-
"They come believing they deserve the be-
havior they received at home."
Peaceful Paths advocate
"It's a huge problem," McDonough said, whose
experience in an abusive high-school relationship car-
ried baggage so heavy, her ex-boyfriend contacted her
She said the relationship began during her fresh-
man year. About a year later, it turned mentally and
The situation became so severe, McDonough had to
file a restraining order.
Gainesville Police Detective Bruce Ferris said he
has observed an increase in reported cases because he
said "the doors are open" and people are looking for
"Thirty years ago there were no arrests," Ferris
Every fifteen seconds nowadays, a woman reports
He said GPD has a hotline for victims to report in-
cidents and that there are days when he sees up to five
cases. In 2004, there were 949 domestic violence cases
Trish White, an advocate for Peaceful Paths, a local
shelter, also spoke.
White said her agency is a 24-hour network offering
victims of domestic violence an opportunity for con-
fidential mentorship, shelter and education regarding
the psychotheory of violence.
"They come believing they deserve the behavior
they received at home," she said.
McDonough said her experiences in high school
were traumatic even with a strong support system
from her relatives and friends and cannot imagine
what it would be like to experience that sort of rela-
tionship in college without people close at hand.
"It was so overwhelming," she said. "I had family
and friends that tried to protect me."

Access a state problem
with record exemptions
According to the Associated Press, Florida newspapers
Sunday "urged readers to press officials for increased
While we're busy battling for student access in Student
Government, news publications, media organizations and even
ordinary citizens are fighting for access to state government.
The state Legislature will consider this year a number of
exemptions to public access laws or Sunshine Laws any
of which would be dangerous to the freedom of citizens and the
media to obtain government records.
The Orlando Sentinel warned that exemptions could pass
"that would hide business conducted by research institutions
that receive state funding, conceal possible misconduct by law-
enforcement agencies and cover up information about absentee
Just as we can't stand by and let the administration make
decisions about SG without including them or let SG's Supreme
Court hold meetings without warning, well, we can't stay quiet
while those on the state level try to re-establish control over
these records. Access to the information they contain is neces-
sary for Florida citizens to keep the government accountable
for its actions.
The SG Supreme Court believes these access laws do not ap-
ply to them. If the Legislature allows these exemptions to take
effect, the court easily will be able to argue that it is similarly ex-
empted. But after the online voting debacle, who rightfully can
insist that the court can be trusted to meet in secret? Students
must be allowed the opportunity to attend these meetings if
they are to hold any merit.
Unfortunately, the problem doesn't stop at UF or even
Florida: As poor as the situation seems here, the Sunshine State
is recognized as providing more access to public records than
But that's not good enough. This doesn't change the fact that
the SG Supreme Court is holding secret meetings, the adminis-
tration is forcing decisions upon SG, and the state Legislature,
if it does not act appropriately by turning down these exemp-
tions, will continue to offer a poor role model in complying with
the spirit of the Sunshine-Laws.

he United States always has been' the most attrac-

as stated by Donald M. Bishop, minister-counselor
for press and cultural affairs at the American Embassy

tens or hundreds of millions of dollars to subsidize the
students that come from foreign nations. These billions
of dollars demonstrate a true American commitment to
diversity and international understanding:"
Well, maybe not the state of Florida.
Less than two months after Bishop's statement, the
Florida House of Representatives is on the way to pass-
ing House Bill 21, which prohibits any international stu-
dent from receiving state financial aid the first bill of
its kind in the United States. They say $5.7 million could
be saved to provide need-based scholarships to Florida
But what will we lose?
My tutor, Rongling Wu, was an international student
under state support. Now, he's conducting cancer and
human gene research, which could save the lives of thou-
sands of Americans.
My ex-roommate, Xingyu Huang, was an interna-
tional student under state support. Now, he is working
in China for Intel, helping a U.S. enterprise make money
by selling products to China.
Abdol R. Chini, professor and director of the School
of Building Construction at UF, was also an interna-
tional student under state support. Now, he's educating
American students in the expertise they need to build
But this bill is saying people like them shouldn't be
supported to study in the United States.
Thousands of international students, coming. to
Florida with a dream, will be forced to leave before they
can complete their studies, with frustration and resent-
ment of the United States in their minds.
Fei Long Is that what the politicians in
Speaking Out Tallahassee want?
It seems the answer is "Yes." In
2003, the House passed a bill prohibiting 822 students
from Iran, Iraq, Syria, Cuba, North Korea and Sudan
from receiving financial aid in order to provide scholar-
ships to Florida residents. Now, all international students
are their targets. And who will be the next? How about
pasinl a bill prohibiting all out-of-state students from
receiving financial aid? After-all, you would save more
money for Florida residents this way.
These are totally wrong. Turning the other students
away is not the solution to the problems of higher educa-
tion in Florida. Florida's administration should seriously
think about the consequences of their crazy policies.
Land grant, research universities like UF will hurt most
among all universities. If passed, this bill will be bad
news for UF President Bernie Machen's plan to make UF
a Top 10 public research university. It'll be hard for UF
to compete with universities in other states to attract the
best students of the worla. I recently received an e-mail
from Lei Wu, a student and potential Gator from China,
who wrote, "I am.shocked about the news, and very wor-
ried about my offer which requires the confirmation of
acceptance before March 14. Actually I am ready to ac-
cept it. But now, I don't know what I should do."
Look senators, you're already achieving so much.
I ask all of my fellow Gators to speak out to support
international student- It's time for us to work together to
send out a clear message that those politicians are play-
ing a dangerous game that will lower the level of higher
education in Florida instead of enhancing it that it
will, in the long run, hurt Florida residents instead of
benefiting them. It's against the interests.of Florida and
United States, and the bad effects can't be reversed.

Students should be persistent, complain less in SG races
There seems to be a steady trickle of complaints about
Student Government, and leadership opportunities
in general, throughout the course of the school year.
This trickle grows in intensity during the weeks immediately
preceding SG elections. Students who perceive wrongs and
students who feel slighted by the system chum out columns
and send their complaints to the Alligator. I would like to place
a different perspective on the table a positive one.
I am a dual-degree law/graduate student who went to un-
dergrad at a small liberal arts school in Massachusetts called
Holy Cross. Unfortunately, I had other commitments, and lead-
ership roles were nowhere on my radar. I graduated, worked
for a couple of years, and, after recession hit, I decided to go
back to school. I began graduate school here at UF with little
knowledge of how things worked. With more free time than I
had in undergrad, I began exploring the potential of getting in-
volved with various organizations. I found out that a UF stand-
ing committee had an open seat. I sent an e-mail of inquiry,
then a follow up e-mail and then another. Seven months later,
I received an e-mail saying the position had been filled. Later,
James Stowers another committee position denied
Speaking Out my application. I began attending the
meetings, only to find that the student
member who had been appointed ahead of me never showed
up ever. I wonder if he put that position on his resume. Did
these injustices piss me off? Of course. But the point is, these
all are public meetings; I continued to attend and participate.
I wanted to be involved because I had an interest in the issues
being discussed, not simply to get some line on my resume.
As I continued to get shut out, I began to meet people at
the meetings. Was I vindictive, angry and spiteful? No. Who
would want to talk to someone like that? I persisted in my
applications and in my attendance at meetings. Some of my
interviews went well, and I now serve as a cabinet director in
SG. Elitist? I don't think so. People e-mail me all the time with
questions and concerns, and I always make a point of replying.
Greek? They didn't even have a Greek system at Holy Cross.
I am not saying that leadership positions at UF are immune
to dirty politics and over-ambitious people. What I am saying
is perseverance and a positive attitude are much better alterna-
tives to complaining. I have been denied more positions than I
have been appointed or elected to. But here's the thing: These
issues are not going to end when we graduate. At times in our
lives, we will be overlooked for promotions, have others take
credit for our work, or watch as the boss' newly graduated son
takes the position as our supervisor. I don't think the Alligator
is going to follow us all around and allow us to vent about the"
injustices we face every day.

Letters to the Editor
Record deserves more respect in paper
Editor: I want to complain about the
placement of the article detailing Kerron
Clement's world record in the 400 over
this weekend. This stellar accomplishment
deserved much more from the Alligator
than being buried on page 21 on top of a
Domino's Pizza article. As much as I love
the Gator basketball team (I was in Atlanta
this weekend to watch them triumph), they
weren't the only ones who deserved front-
page recognition. How many times in UF
history has an athlete accomplished such
a feat by himself? Is our athletic program
so stellar that a world record gets practi-
cally no recognition by the newspaper that
purportedly reports about the ongoing of
Surely, the front page article about an-
other baseless SG election complaint could
have been moved to page three in order to
make space for one of the greatest accom-
plishments by an athlete at this university.
If not the front page, the article should
have most definitely been placed on the
back page perhaps taking the place of
yet another columnist repeating his coun-
terparts in proclaiming the greatness in
the change of this basketball team.
The readers .could have come to that
conclusion by themselves after reading
the other four articles about the basketball
team. I just ask that all sports get fair cov-
erage, and that such a tremendous athletic
accomplishment receive fair praise.
International aid loss will hurt UF's rank
Editor: Recognizing the strengths in its
student body, prestigious faculty and state
of the art facilities, UF could easily reach
the administration's goal of becoming a
Top 10 public research university by 2008.
However, if Florida SB866 is ratified, UF
will lose part of one of its prime assets:
This bill would require universities to
stop giving state-funded scholarships to
the approximately 1,657 foreign students
that the Florida Department of Education
says are studying in public universities
with that funding.
Not only are international students usu-
ally among the most qualified students in
their home countries, but they also bring
to campus the reality of globalization and
technology exchange. Both technologi-
cal and cultural exchanges are crucial for
many disciplines, including anthropology,
political science, linguistics and even engi-
neering and health professions.
Florida universities will lag behind as
prestigious universities such as University
of California at Berkeley, University of
Virginia and University of Michigan con-
tinue to attract international students,
who then become unofficial ambassadors
of the United States if they choose to re-
turn to their home countries or possibly
develop theories or inventions which
automatically are patented by their educa-
Another vital contribution of interna-
tional students is the challenge they pose
to stereotypes. I have friends that have
changed their views on many issues just
by interacting with students different
from themselves and realizing the power

Taser use raises questions of safety, proper-training
* LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT
AGENCIES DEBATE WHETHER
TO PURCHASE THEM.
By ELIZABETH PRANN
Attempting to address recent
concerns about the safety of Taser
weapon use, Florida lawmakers
are proposing bans relating to the
weapons' use on minors and train-
ing requirements for officers who
University Police Department
spokesman Joe Sharkey said despite
the safety concerns raised by state
legislators and a series of alleged
Taser-related deaths, he "absolute-
ly" feels these weapons are neces-
sary in certain situations and that
Tasers can save a person's life.
The weapons, Sharkey said, give
law-enforcement officers an option
when they-are involved in a situ-
ation that normally would call for
extreme reactions using force with
a deadly weapon such as a gun. .
However, critics argue that Taser
weapons, despite claims and testing
done by the company, are dangerous
.and possibly lethal.
The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office,
which recently approved use of the
weapons by school resource officers,
has suspended that decision until
The Gainesville Police
Department had planned to pur-
chase Taser weapons, but a decision
on that is still pending, GPD spokes-
man Keith Kameg said.
New legislation, filed March 8
with the Florida Senate, calls for
'all Taser-wielding officers to earn a
minimum qualification and receive
Another bill, which has been sus-
pended temporarily, prohibits, the
use of Tasers and similar devices on
a minor on school grounds.
However, Sharkey, who works
at a Taser-carrying enforcement-
agency on a school campus, said
Taser weapons are.designed to im-
mobilize a person and keep a dan-
gerous situation from escalating and
are beneficial for schools.
"Having an out-and-out ban in a
school would not be a good idea,"'
He said Taser weapons provide
an officer % ith a choice: one that
may save a student's life.
Sharkey remarked on the impor-
tance of any agency that uses Taser
weapons to follow a thorough train-
"From a liability standpoint, they
better," Sharkey said.
UPD sends its officers to a
program conducted by. Taser
International. The officers then
come back to train other staff mem-
bers who carry the weapon, he said.
"It's very extensive training,"
Sharkey said. "All the way down to
how to carry [the weapon]."
The program explains how to
use the weapon and make proper
judgment calls as to what situations
merit use of the weapons and how.
UPD sergeants already wield
these weapons, but a limited num-
ber of them are available to lieuten-

Third murder trial begins
By MEGAN V. WINSLOW
After two mistrials, round three of
a double-homicide case involving a
Gainesville man is scheduled to begin
today in the Alachua County Criminal
Willie James Hudson, 30, is charged
with fatally shooting John Adkins, 28,
and Kevin Harris, 29, in July 2003.
Hudson's first trial for first-degree
murder ended in December when a
jury could not reach a verdict after
13 hours of deliberation. On Feb. 20,
another jury took seven hours before
declaring it couldn't reach a decision
Throughout both trials, State
Prosecutor Geoffrey Fleck maintained
that Hudson shot and killed Harris
while trying to rob him during a drug
exchange in Hudson's car.
Adkins, Hudson's alleged friend
and the driver of the car, died after
being accidentally shot during the
But defense attorney Stephen N.
Bernstein said Hudson was home in
Orlando with his wife when the shoot-
ings occurred, as she has testified.
.Both the prosecution and the state
cite the predominance of circumstantial
evidence in the case as a possible cause
of the juries' indecision and lengthy
debate. Perhaps key among this evi-
dence is a forest-green bath towel re-
covered from Adkins' apartment that
contained DNA from Hudson, both
of the victims, and a fourth person, an
The prosecution contested that
Hudson used the
towel- following the
shootings to dry off
after a shower.
Based on expert
the DNA did not nec-
essarily come from
Hudson blood and could have
been deposited by the four individuals
at any time.
Spencer Mann, spokesman for
the .State Attorney's Office, said the
questionable credibility of several wit-
nesses could also be an explanation for
the hung juries.
Although he could not divulge spe-
cific details of the case, Mann said the
state has not made any drastic changes
to how it will approach the case this
"You can't change the facts and the
evidence you have, but you can refine
your methods," he said.

Progress candidate bullied
Some Delta Sigma Pi officers and members
are intimidating their fellow officer and mem-
ber, Jessica Hernandez, with her immediate
removal because she forwarded the e-mail to
Progress Party officers, she said.
Hernandez, the fraternity's vice president
for pledge education and third-most power-
ful officer, is running to be a Student Senator
in the Business Administration seat with the
"People think Iwas out to get everybody,"
Hernandez said, adding that she forwarded
the e-mail to her party because she "thought
it was shady."
The fraternity is having an "emergency
meeting" tonight to decide her fate, she said.
She said she wasn't sure what her fellow
members would do to her, but it involves the
house members taking steps for her to "either
resign or be forced to leave" because she for-
warded the e-mail.
Hemandez said she did not know that
there is some bylaw within the chapter that
prohibits members to forward e-mail to oth-
ers, and she added it's a bylaw that isn't
commonly known throughout the fraternity's
The e-mail's author, Michael Coogan,
along with the fraternity's self-titled represen-
tative to the Gator Party, Ryan McGee, "are the
ones that are organizing the thing for me to get
kicked out," Hernandez said.
McGee and Coogan were both present at
the Monday night trial to give testimony that
they had no connection with the Gator Party.
When the left the election commission meet-
ing, McGee said that he had nothing to do
with organizing Hernandez's removal from
the frat, and did confirm that she violated a
Hernandez said normally the fraternity
puts its members through a "trial" when in
trouble for not paying dues, not participating,
or betraying the chapter. But in this case, she
cannot predict what her fate will be consider-
ing it is an emergency meeting.
"It's freedom of speech and they're just get-
ting me on a small technicality," she said.
Hemandez said she was willing to take
the heat and leave, but she feels bad if she is
forced to leave since she is a leader for all of the
"It's a real shame if it hurts them," she
Coogan and McGee answered questions
from the commission and were interrogated
by the plaintiff, Progress' Rosemarie Clouston,
and the defendant, Gator Party spokesman
Sen. Kurt Zaner.
Coogan kept all his answers regarding the
e-mail he sent brief and dry, saying he sent the
e-mail on his own behalf and was not instruct-
ed by anyone in the Gator Party, or by McGee,
that by block voting they would get positions
in SG by the Gator Party.
Hernandez was also questioned as a wit-
ness, and said she had conversations with
those involved about promised positions, but
her testimony was not considered because it
did not deal with the e-mail in.question.
The promising e-mail
The following is taken from the e-mail
in question, sent by Coogan:
"I wanted to clarify that in return
for our block voting (minus our broth-
ers slated with other parties of course,
GO JESSICA [Hernandez]!) with the
Gator Party, appointments and provi-
sions in Student government will be
made possible to Delta Sig Fraternity.
That means we have to prove our mem-
bers actually vote by keeping your 'I voted
sticker' to be collected and turned into the
party chair at the end-of the election. Ryan
[McGee] will touch on all this later."
McGee said he did not tell Coogan that
there would be promised positions, and
that he was not associated with Gator.

She said she received a phone call from a journalist on be-
half of AM Costa Rica, a national paper, who claimed he had
received e-mails from concerned readers.
Additionally, Dobbins' photo was released on national
television. His father also appealed to anyone with any infor-
mation relating to his son's disappearance to come forward,
according to the e-mail.
Wells said in another e-mail on March 8 that the students
were experiencing extreme frustration with the search efforts
by local authorities.
"...If this was Australia, we would have had 200 people
on the beach search, three choppers overhead and numerous
boats... Instead it's just the four of us trying to instigate an in-
vestigation from a cell phone that hardly ever works, and we
only have eight eyes," Wells said.

The term "bye week" doesn't sit
well in his vocabulary.
Early wakeup calls, a rigorous
workout schedule, classes, tutors,
brushing up on playbooks and prac-
tices are done without one excuse.
Meanwhile, every day students
struggle to make it to their morning
"The Meat We Eat" class.
Sophomore cornerback Dee
Webb is a year-round member of the
football team, but in a time that most
football athletes condition amid
spring's serene setting, he competes
as a member of the UF track team.
Webb is one of five football play-
ers who are multi-sport athletes.
Sophomore Gavin Dickey and
freshman Tate Casey play baseball
and freshman Cornelius Ingram
does hoops. Freshman wide receiver
Bernard Middleton runs track. The
trend has grown as athletes look to
maintain their physical peak while
excelling in two. sports. Still, with
the challenge comes enormous re-
"It's a big adjustment in training
as far as the physical aspect, but it's
fine with me," Webb said. "It's work
and work has to be done."
In his second year on the football
field, Webb started all 12 games
and recorded three interceptions.
Playing cornerback, a position that
relies on quickness, Webb has used
track to his advantage by learning
TUESDAY, MARCH 15, 2005 ALLIGA
methods that fine-tune his speed.
Webb loses most of his sweat
via speed drills. And for Webb, the
phrase "speed kills" couldn't be
more appropriate. The defensive
back finished second in the 55-meter
dash at the Gator Invitational earlier
this year, running it in 6.38 seconds.
"Coming out here, Coach [Mike]
Holloway has shown me how to run
- and not just using my natural tal-
using Last year, it was a

Work is an understatement for
multi-sport football players. The
athletes train six hours a day to
improve strength, speed and agility,
but risk falling behind in the aca-
demic aspects of their college life.
Webb, a business major, pri-
oritizes his agenda and tries to do a
good job managing his schedule.-
"It's a challenge at any time, but
now with two sports it's an even
bigger challenge," Webb said. "But
like in football season, I have to
perform on the field and perform
in the classroom. It's not something
to be played around with, so I just
handle my business and go down
to the nitty-gritty."
For Casey, a tight end who
emerged as one of Chris Leak's
favorite red zone targets in 2004, his
first semester as a two-sport athlete
has challenged him both in the
weight room and in the classroom.
"I know right now I'm kind
of behind academically, but it's
a new experience for me playing
two sports," Casey said. "When I

-Gavin Dickey, UF backup quarterback and outfielder
was playing football last year as a
freshman, it was hectic at times ...
but that has prepared me better for
baseball this year."
The mental dimension of jug-
gling two sports, school and recre-
ational time can be hard to grasp.
"I wake up every day at 5
a.m. and that's accountability an
athlete has to take," Casey said.
"But as hard as the workouts are,
the coaches make sure to balance
it out. The mental challenge is the
toughest part, because in football,
we are getting in shape and putting
on weight just like every other foot-
ball player in the country. But then
in baseball I work. on even more
strength and agility."

Nearly 1,500 members of UF's
Greek community are expected to
show up at tonight's "Greeks for
Life" blood drive.
The event, which will take place
at 6 p.m. on Flavet Field, will serve
as the conclusion to LifeSouth's
week-long blood drive with UF
"We wanted one really big
event to bring everybody
out to the field at one time.
Each individual chapter

"This started out as a small
event, and it's just grown every
day," Panhellenic Council Unity
Director Heather Graver said.
Panhellenic, Multicultural Greek,
and National Pan-Hellenic
Councils' members will watch an
outdoor screening of "Napoleon

while waiting to donate blood.

only to the Greek community, the

them would probably increase

He said the councils have talk-

Sators continue climbing ladder
By BRYAN APP
Alligator Staff Writer
Before they could clip the nets,
before they could hoist the trophy,
before they could don the vic-
)ry hats and T-shirts, even before
hey could step foot in Atlanta, the
;ators had to climb the ladder.
'he ascent began March 2.
Before UF's game against Georgia,
'oach Billy Donovan gave the Gators
lesson in step aerobics.
He imported a 9-foot ladder into
JF's locker room. Each rung repre-
.ented a team goal.
A sign taped to the first step read,
'Georgia." The next said, "Kentucky,"
hen "SEC champs," and finally
Donovan made each player climb.
"I started getting higher on the
adder and he said, 'Now look at how
-igh you are this is where you get

forwardd David Lee explained. "That

Donovan's allegory resonated with
he Gators, as they completed a seven-
;ame climb culminating in UF's first
;EC Tournament title.
And as they rose from the Georgia
)ome floor up a different ladder, the
3atori'clipped the nets in the same
fashion they had climbed all weekend
- as a team.
Sure, Tournament MVP Matt Walsh,
;EC-leading scorer Anthony Roberson
ind Lee, UF's senior captain, all
;trolled off the court with tiny pieces
)f nylon tucked in their caps.
But so did junior Adrian Moss and

Yes, that means Madness is

I'm actually excited about spring prac-

the biggest farmer's tan in the world for
two hours every practice, complaining
about how boring it was. As if that wasn't
bad enough, it got worse. We had to listen
to Ron Zook babble his fake injury reports
and his "We're getting better and better"
line every other day.
I was actually fooled, though that's
the sad thing. I thought the Gators would

Some would call the Gators dead. But
UF still finds itself clutching the lifesaver
tossed by the Women's National Invitational
Out of the NCAA Tournament field, the
Gators' season is still alive despite being on
a four game losing streak.
UF (14-14, 5-9 Southeastern
Conference) was selected
tothe Women's NIT late
Sunday. They will play at
South Florida on Thursday
at 7 p.m.
In USF, the Gators face
a familiar foe. Since 1974,
the teams have played 37 times, with UF
the victor in all but three games. Resuming
the series in 2001 after a six-year hiatus, the
Gators have defeated the Bulls by an average
of 16 points. On Jan. 2, UF claimed a 58-50
victory over USF in Gainesville.
Senior Tamia Williams said even though
the two teams met this season,.it was too
long ago to have an accurate gauge of USF's
play. But she adds this meeting may be an-
other close defensive game.
"I know we are two different teams now,"
the guard said. "I think it may be a totally
different look on the game, but it may not."
Following that game, USF coach Jose
Fernandez thought the Bulls was the bet-
ter team, saying "We beat ourselves. They
didn't beat us."
At the time, UF coach Carolyn Peck said
the Gators won because they had the best
team, not the best individual players. On
Monday, she removed any ideas of so-called
bulletin board material being sent up and
down Interstate 75.
"I talked to their coach after that, he gave
me a call," Peck said. "And really I think that
whole episode was blown out of proportion
...That was so long ago."
UF wants to get back to playing and show
they are better than a .500 team. Junior Sarah
Lowe said UF is ready for Thursday's game.
"Ideally, we're prepared and we have all
the tools for us and we just have to execute
them when the time is there to do so," she
said. "I think as a team we'd say we're very
prepared to go forth and do that."
SThe UF men's basketball team finished
the season ranked No. 16 in the final As-
sociated Press poll. The Gators had been

SFCC's Greene emulates friend Walsh's success
By RYAN MOSS
Alligator Contributing Writer
Matt Walsh dribbles upcourt,
gets to the 3-point line and lofts an
alley-oop pass to Brian Greene, who
soars above the rim and slams the
ball down with authority.
Wait a minute. Walsh plays for
UF and Greene plays for Santa Fe
- how is that play possible?
Over, the past couple summers,
the two superstars have played to-
gether at UF and a friendship has
"I've went and watched some
of his games and he comes and gets
tickets to my games sometimes,"
Walsh said about Greene. "He is just

never played one-on-one, but Walsh
joked that the athletic Greene would
probably dunk on him. Both players
give opposing coaches nightmares,
but for different reasons. Walsh .is
feared for his incredible shooting
ability, while Greene's tremendous
-athleticism allows him to dominate
nearly all aspects of the game.
"He changes the game on the
defensive end with blocked shots
and steals and plays good, solid
defense," Saints coach Chris Mowry
said. "Offensively, he is very explo-

Next year, the friends will finally

NCAA game Greene has signed a
letter-of-intent with Florida A&M.
"I am really excited about play-
ing against him," Greene said. "The
atmosphere is going to be great and
I know we'll be talking."
Although Greene's final season at
Santa Fe ended earlier that planned,
he leaves after an impressive year.
Greene led the Saints in scoring,
rebounds, blocks and steals.
"He just has a competitive spirit
and a will to win," Mowry said. "He
hates losing and is very unselfish.
He doesn't care who. gets the glory
as long as the team wins."
Winning was one thing Greene
and company did this year. Santa Fe
opened the season with 20 consecu-
tive wins and-was ranked as high as
No. 4 nationally. The Saints finished
the season in a three-way conference
tie, but fell to Daytona Beach in a

long ago. Greene was a high school
star in various sports, but he would
not commit to one sport and colleges
were turned off.
FAMU coach Mike Gillespie is
very excited about the arrival of the
6'4" guard. He feels that GAene's
attitude and athleticism will be cru-
cial come next season. Additionally,
Gillespie is confident that Greene
will make an instant impact.
"He has the potential to be [the
MEAC] Player of the Year," he said.

Ask Lee and he'll explain how each
player has become a crucial cog in the-
new Cadillac of the SEC.
He'll explain how difficult the Gators
are to beat with shutdown defenders
(Brewer), loose-ball gobblers (Horford),
and bench monsters (Richard).
And heading into UF's NCAA
Tournament first-round game against
Ohio on Friday, Lee will explain how
confident he is with a group that fought
through disappointing early-season
losses to click when it mattered.
"This team is peaking at the right
time," Lee said. "The teams in past years
in December might have beaten this
team, but it's not even close in February
That's just a sample of anew-found
confidence through chemistry the Gators
say they'll take to Nashville on Friday.
"We have more talent than anybody
in the country," said Roberson follow-
ing Sunday's Kentucky win. "And now
we've got the attitude. It's over now."
One might say the Gators were on
a mission in Atlanta. But Moss sure

that means the mission is over," Moss
said. "The mission isn't over. We're-still

be different after everything Zook had to
say last spring.
Then Tennessee happened. Then
LSU happened. Then the unthinkable
- Mississippi State happened. Same
Gators team, yet nothing had changed.
Then Zook was fired and the program
finally hadJa chance to be turned around
It won't be like that this year. Meyer
is going to'make practices fun to watch.

ers. It someone gets hurt. he'll tell uts.
Last year, Zookwouldn't let fans sit. As
if atiching the GatorIs lose to bad teams
i,.asn't pumnhnhment enough to Gators
fans, he made them stand up in swelter-
ing .heat just to watch boring practices.
Zook called it a work area because he and
his players were working. Breaking news:
fans are not working. Zook was getting
"paid out there. Fans were not.
This year, fans can sit again. That,
coupled with the fact that spring practices
might have some excitement to them,
gives fans no, excuse not to get out to at
least a practice or two. Besides, NCAA
Tournament games are at the end of the
week until the championship.
And just think. You can sit this year.
Just like you would be watching bas-
