Officials talk insurance
New post proposed
By JEFF SIRMONS
TAMPA Students at any Florida
public university may receive free or subsi-
dized health insurance, thanks to the State
University Presidents' Association's support
of the plan Wednesday.
Because some say the state may soon
require students to have health insurance
before enrolling, the 11 universities now
will search for health insurance together, to
achieve lower rates.
"The more people we have, the cheaper
the rates for health insurance are," said the
association chairman and University of West
Florida President John Cavanaugh.
The vice presidents of finance and admin-
istration at each university will work together
to find cheaper health insurance plans that
will fit the needs of their university.
"Each campus may have different benefit
structures already in place, so we will have
to work together to plan out what fits all of
us best," said Ed Poppell, UF vice president
of Finance and
Administration who did not attend
Florida International University, for ex-

will enhance the healthcare to undergradu-
"The more benefits we offer to students,
the better the quality of students we teach
are," FIU Provost Mark B. Rosenberg said.

to delay action until UF finds its

Pending academic freedom bill comes under fire
By JAMES VANLANDINGHAM
Alligator Staff Writer
TALLAHASSEE The pending Florida
House bill that would establish a statewide
code of academic freedom is unnecessary, UF
officials say, because the university already
has significant safeguards in place to protect
student and faculty rights.
UF spokesman Joe Kays said the-universi-
ty's Ombudsman's Office investigates student
and faculty complaints, and helps enforce ex-
isting university policies protecting students
and faculty from political discrimination or re-
taliation concerns bill sponsor Rep. Dennis
Baxley, R-Ocala, cited as reasons for the law.
The Legislature passed a law mandating
colleges and universities to establish similar
offices in 2002. UF had one much earlier.
"We feel that the legislature has already ad-
dressed this issue, and university procedures
already address all the concerns Rep. Baxley
has in his bill," Kays said. "Students are pretty
Baxley recently sent a letter to UF President
Bernie Machen explaining his reasons for
pushing the bill. Kays said Machen received
the letter and is formulating UF's response.
The House Choice and Innovation
Committee approved the bill Tuesday.
UF: Restating the obvious
Bob Jerry, dean of the UF Levin College of
Law, said the language of Baxley's bill restates
principles of academic freedom enshrined in
opinions of the U.S. Supreme Court.
The problem, Jerry said, is that by codify-
ing these principles as Florida statutes, the bill
could have serious consequences.
"It is possible that if this were statutory law,
academic freedom principles that we test and
apply in university and faculty governance fo-
rums could be cited in the courts," Jerry said.
"That would be a very different environment
for all of us and not one that, in my opinion,
would be appropriate."
Those concerns were echoed in a legisla-
tive staff analysis warning that the bill may
allow Florida students to sue their professors
and universities if they feel ridiculed in class,
or if their professors fail to teach "alternative"
theories on controversial subjects.
Making an exaniple
At the Tuesday hearing, an example Baxley
cited of when students should be allowed to
sue is when biology professors teach evolution

as fact, failing to acknowledge Creationism.
UF evolutionary, geneticist Charles Baer
said while he wouldn't mark down students
for not believing in evolution, they would still
be expected to complete course work.
"We're not talking about 4-year-
olds here. Students have critical
thinking ability. If they don't like
what they hear from their profes-
sor, they can ditch it."
UF physics professor
"If I was asking them to write a paper on
one aspect of evolution, and they said they
didn't believe in evolution so they wouldn't
write a paper, they would be marked down,"
he said. "If someone said, 'I don't believe in
evolution, but if I did, this would be what I'd
write,' that would be OK. I'm not going to
flunk someone for not believing in evolution."
Baer said even if he knew he could be sued
he would continue teaching the same way.
"Students should not be ridiculed in class,
and in any context, it's not appropriate, but
some students may be touchier than others,"

Baer said. "What seems as discussion to some
people may seem inappropriate to others."
Who teaches the teachers?
In urging lawmakers to pass the bill, Baxley
said university classrooms have morphed into
"niches of totalitarianism" where leftist pro-
fessors are "dictators who control the indoc-
trinization 6f the next generation."
UF physics professor Pierre Ramond, who
serves as chairman of the Faculty Senate, said
that demeans students' intelligence.
"We're not talking about 4-year-olds here,"
he said. "Students have critical thinking abil-
ity. If they don't like what they hear from their
professor, they can ditch it."
And as far as indoctrinization goes, profes-
sors combat that threat when they ask ques-
tions and force students to think on their own.
Baer said that if students in his class said
they believed in Intelligent Design or another
theory of Creationism, he would ask them
questions in the Socratic method, forcing them
to explain the reasoning behind their beliefs.
According to the UF Faculty Handbook,
university policy maintains full academic free-
dom to discuss subjects frankly, select instruc-
tional materials and determine grades.

Candidates offer alternatives to anti-rave ordinance
By BRIAN HAGEN
Candidates for the Gainesville
City Commission took one more
chance to spell out ideas for the pro-
posed extension of bar closing hours.
If approved, the new ordinance
would mean any liquor-licensed
establishments would stop serving
alcohol at 2 a.m. but would be al-
lowed to stay open until 3 a.m.
The student-heavy Safe and Fair
Entertainment Committee is pro-
moting the change.
In competition for the At-Large
seat are incumbent Rick Bryant and
candidates Diyonne McGraw, Rob
Brinkman and Gabe Kaimowitz.
McGraw, a former parole officer,
supports the change, saying a later
closing time will help keep intoxi-
cated patrons off the streets.
"Ninety-five percent of my case
load was DUIs," she said. "DUIs
stay on your record for 75 years."

reports from the Gainesville Police
Department and safety experts.
"The system isn't working,"
Bryant said. "[But] we've got some
real good discussion now."
To improve safety, Gainesville
has added extensive police and staff
coverage downtown, he said.
Kaimowitz suggested specific
alcohol-free alternative activities to
lure people away from bars and give
them alternatives to drinking.
Street musicians and entertainers
could play on blocked-off streets, he
said. Dramatic performances, such
as "American Idol"-style events,
could command audiences.
Brinkman supported the 3 a.m.
closing time and had ideas for the
elimination of noise violations and
Policy now dictates that police
must ignore many noise violations
at closing time to concentrate on
public safety dangers, Brinkman
said, advocating modernizing the
code enforcement department.
It could become an independent
department, possibly by even put-
ting code enforcers on the streets at
night, writing citations.
Drinkers in Tampa, identified by
bracelets, can buy only one drink
per bracelet at the bar, he said, curb-
ing underage drinking and keeping
excessive consumption at bay as
well as controlling end-of-night al-
cohol abuse, Brinkman said.
GPD will follow the city's wishes
but supports the 2 a.m. closing time,
spokesman Keith Kameg said.
A2.a.m. closing provides an hour
overlap in police shifts, giving the
city twice as many officers on the
streets from 2 to 3 a.m., he said.
GPD has been asked to limit
input on the issue but will provide

"We will deal with the situation
as it's being dealt to us," he said.
UPD now fights alcohol abuse
with education and patrols, includ-
ing officers stationed on the campus
side of University Avenue to watch
for drunk drivers, Sharkey said.
"I don't see why they couldn't
limit this," said Ed Clarke, owner
of Eddie C's Pub & Billiards. "It'd
be cool on weekend nights, but not
seven nights a week."
When Florida lawmakers passed
a bill in 1997 forcing all establish-
ments with liquor licenses to shut
down at 2 a.m., Gainesville chose to
let the party continue by passing no
such matching ordinance.
Gainesville's lack of standardized
closing times for night clubs and
bars attracted both raves and drugs
such as ecstasy and Ketamine.
But it wasn't until two students
died during parties following a
home football victory over the
Tennessee Volunteers that the move-
ment for-a 2 a.m. dosing time in an
effort to curb such partying began.
The proposed change was met
with student protests at City Hall
and a divided Commission.
However, in 1999 establishments
with liquor licenses were officially
mandated to close at 2 a.m. In 2000,
the Commission passed the Dance
Hall Ordinance, which closed even
alcohol-free clubs at 2 a.m.

McGraw brings balance
By STEPHEN MAGRUDER
On the Gainesville City Commission ballot,
no candidate looks like Diyonne McGraw.
That's because McGraw, a candidate for the
At-Large seat, is the only woman in the race, as
well as the only black candidate.
"I decided to run because I thought
Gainesville needed, for one, more diversity,"
McGraw said. "I think I'm the candidate that
brings the balance."
McGraw noted that the last time a black
woman .sat on the City Commission was
Cynthia Chestnut in 1990 -just before McGraw
moved to Gainesville 14 years ago.
As an only child growing up in Memphis,
Tenn., McGraw became fascinated with politics
at an early age because of her mother's involve-
ment in local campaigns.
"She really surrounded herself with quality
people," McGraw said. "I just followed in her
McGraw moved to .Tallahassee in "1987
to start her freshman year at Florida A&M
University, where she devoted herself to a life of
activism and servitude.
She took part in more than 150 service proj-
ects involving underprivileged children and
feeding the homeless. It's something she still
feels passionate about as the local alumni presi-
dent of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority.
The sorority's motto, "Service to all man-
kind," is manifested in McGraw's plans for
Gainesville if she is elected.
McGraw said she plans to empower local
women, children and war veterans all of
whom she said deserve the highest quality of
"You have to be fair and remember who you
serve," she said.
McGraw .has several roles outside bf her
candidacy for public office. She's also a realtor,
a mother and a wife, which doesn't leave much
time for anything else.
"There's not a whole lot of time to relax right
now with the campaign," she said. "Sometimes
I just sit in the bathtub and try to relax."
When she's not working, volunteering or
campaigning, McGraw enjoys movies, seeing
her friends, watching college
Elections basketball and spending
2005 time with her husband and
"They have been so understanding and very
supportive," McGraw said.
As a former resident of East Gainesville,
McGraw said she would like to see the area
developed, which she said continually is left
behind compared to the west side of town.
"There's a great sense of community [in East
Gainesville]," McGraw said. "You can walk out
your door and everybody's like, 'Hey! How you

"I think you're put here on earth to be a

Officials say requiring health insurance for students may be in best interest
SUPA; from page 1
comes in stride with Florida's
tentative move to join the major-
ity of states in requiring health
insurance as a prerequisite to enroll-
ment, University of South Florida
President Judy Genshaft said.
"It's in the best interest of the
state that every student have health
insurance," Genshaft said.
Florida State University trustees
are discussing whether to make
health insurance coverage man-
datory for admission, said Anne
Blankenship, assistant vice president
of academic affairs at the university.
This program would not affect
students already insured by their
parents, but rather, it would help
provide coverage only to students
who need it.
Other issues discussed included
the role the Board of Governors, the
body that oversees Florida's public
universities, should have in estab- '
lishing university rules.
The governors will discuss today
a proposal requiring their oversight
of university rule changes, such as
the hiking of student tuition fees.
Under the proposition, the uni-
versity must submit any rule change
to the board. If the board does not
respond within 30 days, the rule
stands. Otherwise, it must work its
way through the board, but Florida
Atlantic University President Frank
Brogan said the drawn out process
could be ineffective.
"That rule would create more
mischief than the original problem
the rule was trying to fix,' Brogan
said. "I understand that the Board
of Governors wants to protect itself
from significant rules being passed
without their interaction, but do
they really need oversee what color
our parking lines are?"

Gator Party wins second
time, takes control of SG
The students have spoken.
Well, sort of.
With the turnout at the polls over the past two .
days being as bad as the weather has been lately, it hardly
can be said that there was a mandate from the students of-
fered to the victor today.
But regardless of that and of any claims of wrongdoing,
Joe Goldberg and the Gator Party will be your Student
Government leaders for the next year.
While there has been plenty of anti-Gator sentiment.
from the Alligator editorial board this election season
- all of it deserved and based on compelling evidence, we
feel there is no point in retreading old grievances.
Instead, we want to congratulate the Gator candidates
on their victory, and offer our hopes and requests for their
tenure in office.
SBut don't take that to mean we've all of a sudden
jumped onto the bandwagon.
We always have maintained that Goldberg and Gator
are the most qualified for office and the most likely to ac-
complish the goals that they have set forth.
We also always have maintained that we have not
been convinced their actual goals remotely resemble the
changes students want and need.
For the students' sake, we hope Gator's claims that it
will offer student access are more than just a campaign
If the newly elected Gator members do turn out to be
more respective of what is right for the students, instead
of what is right for themselves, then they have the ability
to do a lot of good during their time in SG.
If they shut down the small increases already made
toward student access, then they equally have the oppor-
tunity to do a lot of damage.
We hope that, no matter what decisions they make.in
terms of representation, they will take into account what is
best for students in terms of policy and bring their experi-
ence to bear in making it happen.
We are not yet writing off this election as a total loss to
the elite minority, and it would be pointless to complain
about abuses of power until we see them in action.
But we cannot help but fear this will be a step backward
to a system we hoped was on its way out.
It is up to our new leaders, then, to prove us wrong
through decisive action.
Prove to us that your concern for the students is genu-
ine by enacting legislation that students support, such as
Prove to us that none of the newly.elected Gator can-
didates were selected in order to fill diversity quotas or
as gifts to organizations for electoral support by showing
through their work that they are qualified for the job.
Prove to us that our fears that legacy positions will be
solidified are unfounded by bestowing positions upon
only the most qualified candidates.
Prove to us that rumors of corruption were unfounded
by running the sort of clean, open and honest organization
that is less likely to receive such criticism.
We want to believe you. We really do.
But it's going to take a lot of work on your part.

In his article "GAU Slams Fee," Jeff Sirmons makes
the common mistake of conflating the federal Student
'and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) fee
with the international student fee. The Department of
Homeland Security implemented SEVIS, a Web-based
system for maintaining information on international
students while they are residing in the United States, in
response to-the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
International students pay for the cost of operating the
SEVIS system through a $100 fee that must be paid before
international students even can apply for a visa. In addi-
tion to the $100 SEVIS fee and $100 visa fee required by
the federal government, international students at UF are
being charged a $50-per-semester "international-student
fee" to meet the extra demands placed on UF by SEVIS."
. While most universities in Florida have absorbed
these costs into their general operating budget, UF
administrators chose to pass these costs on to their in-
ternational students despite protests and appeals from
Graduate Assistants United (GAU) and the international
The administration's argument for the international
student fee seems simple when described last semester
by UF International Center Dean Dennis Jett.
"When you have a service provided to students, it is
paid for by the students who use it or by all students or
by taxpayers from Florida," he said. "The position.at the
federal and now, presumably, the university level is that
students who use this service have to pay the fee."
One of the major problems with Jett's rationale is it
implies that only those students who utilize a university
service should pay for it. Under this logic, all services
provided by the Disabilities Service Center should be
paid for only by those students with disabilities, and
Latino students exclusively should pick up the tab for
the Institute of Hispanic-Latino:Cultures.
Fortunately, people realize the value added froni hav-
le SEVIS fee wrong
Victor Romano ing these students and institutions
Speaking Out on campus and are willing to help
fund them. Why should the costs
associated with having international students on campus
be any different? Why should international students be
the only demographic group on campus that has to pay
their own special fee?
Realizing the hefty economic burden placed exclusive-
ly on international students by charging them a $50-per-
semester fee, UF's Student Government passed a resolu-
tion against the fee. Dean Jett has stated that alternatives
to the current fee would "help UF project a more wel-
coming image to international students" at a time when
"we find ourselves competing for international students
as the number of nationwide applicants drops."
GAU, the university's graduate student employee
union, has taken the position that the fee being levied
upon all international students since the 2002-2003 aca-
demic year was imposed illegally and without proper au-
thority. GAU lawyers are in the process of bringing their
case before the Florida Board of Governors for a final
decision. In the meantime, graduate applications and
admissions from abroad steadily have been declining.
If UF President Bernie Machen's vision of making UF
a Top 10 university is to become a reality, administrators
must realize the importance of recruiting and retaining
quality international students. To make itself competi-
tive, UF needs to continue to draw from an international
pool of applicants.
When the very best international research and teach-
ing assistants choose to attend UF, we all benefit. Hence,
it is the responsibility of administrators to make UF as
internationally appealing as possible.
Unfairly charging international students to study and
work here is a step in the wrong direction.

and food offered at the event.
Beef O' Brady's, Gator's Dockside,

turnout-is expected this year.
The inaugural Beer Festival was
in 1997 at the Sun Center next to the
Hippodrome State Theater, but it grew

parking lot at 238 W University Ave.,
where it remained for six years.
It has expanded once again, justify-

Magnolia Parke, which boasts room to
accommodate larger crowds.
Advanced tickets are $15 and can
be acquired them at Spin Cycle, CD
Warehouse, Gator Beverage, Kazbor's

A large part of that can be attrib-

"It's symbolic of being an emcee.

BY ALICIA PEREZ
Everyone wants to find out who he or
she is. Sometimes, it's even hard to begin
thinking about why we are here and what
constitutes our identity.
Artists throughout the years have ad-
dressed the idea in their paintings and
sculptures. Tonight, students will have a
chance to explore their own identity at -the
Ham Museum of Art.
The Museum University Student
Educators came together with the help-of

and docent programs, to create new types

'Lullabies' seems a stellar new notch in band's belt
ome bands rock hard. Some
bands are melodic. But few
fuse the two styles quite like
Queens of the Stone Age.
On their latest effort,
"Lullabies to Paralyze," QOTSA
are at the top of their game,
bringing artsy rock, dark and
hypnotic moods, rich epics,
powerful blasts of noise and
even some cowbell all without
founding member/bassist Nick
Oliveri, kicked out of the band
for undisclosed reasons before
While Oliveri's penchant
for straight-up metal is notice-
ably missing on the album,
lead singer/guitar player Josh
Homme and the rest of the band's
lineup put together a solid record
that is every bit as compelling as
any previous QOTSA release.
QOTSA always has been a re-
volving cast of musicians, which
may help explain how Homme
and company survived the ab-
sence of the integral Oliveri, a
major factor on previous albums.
Like past QOTSA recordings,
"Lullabies to Paralyze" offers
warm vocals and fuzzy guitars

listeners to get lost in the shifting
Homme's lyrics display a su-
preme sense of wit, while drum-
mer Joey Castillo picks up where
Dave Grohl left off on 2002's
"Songs for the Deaf."
Several .highlights on the
album include guest vocalist
Mark Lanegan's (Screaming
Trees) dark and brooding con-
tribution to the gloomy "Burn
the Witch," Homme's ghostly
vocals on the creepy and surreal
epic "Someone's in the Wolf," the
explosive power and steady keys
of "Broken Box" and, of course,
the heavy dosage of cowbell on
the album's first single, "Little
It is hard to describe accurate-
ly exactly how so many elements
can fit together so seamlessly.
But nonetheless, "Lullabies to
Paralyze" is a unified album that
flows from beginning to end.
With their new release, Josh
Homme and the rest of QOTSA
prove the normal rules of rock
music do not apply to them, and
they are miles ahead of today's
major radio rockers. Again, while
dark and gloomy, the album also
is beautiful and melodic and defi-

Jury finds local man guilty of murdering his brother
By MEGAN V. WINSLOW
It took just under two hours Wednesday
evening for a jury to find Terrance Lee
Looney guilty of the second-degree murder
of his brother.
"We're not surprised by the verdict,"
State Attorney's Office spokesman Spencer
Mann said. "I think if anyone sat and
listened to the evidence, listened to the
closing, it was abundantly clear that Terry
Looney killed his brother."
According to prosecutors, Looney, 42,
strangled his brother James Ralph Looney,
47, in late September 2002, placing his body
in a trash can within a utility shed in the.
backyard of the brothers' childhood home,
where they lived. It would be about seven
months before the body was found.
Throughout the two-day trial, defense
attorney Matthew Wells maintained his
client was in the Alachua County Jail
for a violation of probation when the
defendant's brother was
Skilled. Contradictory wit-
Loc l ness testimony concerning
"-'*CtiuIf when James was last seen
.} alive, which varied from
late September to around
Thanksgiving or Christmas, left room for
doubts to Looney's guilt.
The medical examiner was unable to
determine an exact date of death, and it
is possible that temperature which was
recorded at nearly 80 degrees the night the
body was found could have contributed
to the body's rapid decay, Wells said.
However, a jailhouse confession and oth-
er comments from the defendant also may
have proven damaging for the defense.

Senior relishes in sprints, gives UF different look
By TIM CASEY
The UF pitching staff sweats
wind sprints every day.
But while most of the pitchers
find the drills grueling, senior
pitcher Mike Pete routinely out-
runs his teammates by 20 yards.
"We always as a school,
and especially the baseball
team have tons of ath-
letes on the All-SEC Aca-
demic team. When we go
perform in the classroom
as well as we do, then go
back it up on the field,
UF senior pitcher
His game-day duties are less
taxing, but unforeseen. As a relief
pitcher, Pete never knows when
he'll get the ball.
"A lot of the times; it's not re-
ally much time to warm up," Pete
said. "You could have a -starter
out there doing fine, and then you
have to get loose in two minutes
to be ready to go. It's pretty much
an up-and-down experience out
in the bullpen."
His career has been a roller-
coaster ride as well.
Pete was drafted by the
Chicago Cubs as a senior in high
school with the 1,439th overall
pick in the 49th round.
UF coach Pat McMahon looks
to Pete for leadersh'n because of
his status as one of the team's four
seniors, despite throwing just 17.1
innings in 2004.
"I think that if you asked
Michael about last year, he'd
probably tell you that he was
trying to overthrow a little bit,"
Pete agrees with that assess-
ment, using his coach's advice to
improve his mid-80's fastball and
"I struggled a little bit. I wasn't
getting ground balls," Pete said.
"We had some other guys step
up in those roles. [Pitching] coach
[Ross] Jones and Coach Mac and I
have been working on straighten-
ing that stuff out with my deliv-
In 2003, Pete recorded the
fourth-best single- season walks-

tory, walking 11 in a career-high

NCAA MEN'S SWIMMING
UF takes strokes toward snapping Auburn's streak
By BRIAN STEELE
The bully on the playground no
longer has everyone behind him.
After failing to dethrone Auburn
as Southeastern Conference
champions, the No. 4 UF men's
swimming and diving team will
try again on a bigger stage this
weekend. Today starts the 2005
NCAA Championships, hosted by
While the Gators know how close
they came to stopping Auburn's
nine-year SEC championship run,
the Tigers' depth became one of the
larger obstacles for UF to overcome.
With a larger number of qualifiers
for the NCAA Championships,
the Tigers' advantage may not be
as clear as before. UF qualified 14
swimmers and diver Zach Wilcox,
while the Tigers are sending 20 to-
tal athletes, just five more than the
Even though the numbers gap is
slimmer, the Gators know that their
15 athletes must perform.
"Everyone has got to do their
own part and just race tough," ju-
nior Ryan Lochte said. "I know we
don't have the advantage; we're not
the top team. If we won SECs [then
we may have been the favorite], but
we didn't. There are other teams be-
sides Auburn that have more guys
than us that are going to NCAAs.
It's going to be a good meet."
Coach Gregg Troy sees even
more reasons why the Gators will
improve upon- two consecutive
sixth-place finishes at the NCAA
"I think that we're more experi-
enced and more
said. "We have a
with our tough
[Being the under-
dog at NCAAs]
Lochte might take the
Even though the Auburn men
hold a monopoly on college swim-
ming right now, that may not be
to the disadvantage of underdogs
"Everyone's not looking at us,
they're looking at Auburn," Lochte
said. "We're just one of the teams
looking for them. Hopefully, we're
going to sneak past them, then."
All it takes is one bad day to
open the door for others. Lochte
knows that the Gators are capable
of coming home with the team's
first national title in 21 years.
"We all feel really confident that
we're capable of winning," he said.
"Anyone can win on any day, so
hopefully it's a Gator day. It's some-
thing Florida hasn't been able to do
in so long, and I think we have the
best chance this year. It'd be awe-
some to win it."
Though Lochte may be earning
more and more publicity, he points
out that he is only one of 15 UF ath-
letes. If the Gators are to come out
on top, it will be because everybody
contributed, not just a select few.
"I don't think I'd be one of the
main components," Lochte said.
"It's a team effort, and everyone
does their own job."
While Lochte may deny that
he is one of the focal points of the
team, his presence and abilities are
certainly a positive attribute. Troy
believes there are other advantages,
"Having as high a profile as
Lochte helps other teams overlook
most of our other guys," he said.
"They use that as a source of moti-
vation. We have more athletes than

CONSECUTIVE TOP-10 TEAM.

Occasionally, all the elements line up:

For the UF women's tennis team, all of
that happened Wednesday night, as the
No. 17 Gators defeated No. 7 Duke 4-0.
The win follows Sunday's victory
against No. 10 North Carolina, capping
a sketch during which UF (8-2, 2-2
Southeastern Conference) faced four
consecutive top-10 teams. After losing to
Vanderbilt and Kentucky to start the run,
the Gators now appear to have reacquired
their killer look.
Coach Roland Thomqvist said he loved
the grit and fight his team displayed.
"I thought we clearly outhustled them,
outworked them, just wanted it more," he
said. "To me, that's worth more than just

"I grew up getting ready for these
matches," he said. "It was nice to beat my
alma mater Sunday, but it's twice as sweet
to beat the Duke Blue Devils."
UF relied on its youth Wednesday.
Playing in the sixth position, sopho-
more Nina Suvak defeated Kristin Cargill
After her win, freshman Whitney Benik
sealed another point with a 6-3, 6-1 win on
With two matches and the doubles
point in hand, freshman Alex Liles was in
the position to clinch on court three.
Falling behind 4-1 to open the match,
Liles got her timing back and converted
unforced errors into winners. Liles won 11
of the next 12 games, defeating Jenny Zika
The freshman exhibited confidence on
the court by dictating play, but she was not
always so sure she would win.
"When I was down 4-1," she said. "I
was hoping everyone else would win fast
so I wouldn't get a loss."
The Gators made quick work of the
Blue Devils during the doubles competi-
tion. Benik and fellow freshman Lolita
Frangulyan, who lost 8-1 on the top court
Sunday against UNC, dropped down a
court and won 8-2 against Duke.
UF's Boglarka Berecz and the Gators swept Duke 4-0 Wednesday night in Gainesville. UF
has won two consecutive matches.

Gonzales: tough road to triumph
By IAN FISHER
Alligator Staff Writer
Last week, UF wide receiver Chad
Jackson said he and his fellow receivers
would be the best group in the country.
According to their coach, though,
they've got a long way to go.
"The University of Florida needs to
have the best receivers in America," wide
receivers coach Billy Gonzales.said. "Are
we there right now? I would say we're
very, very far off from that right now."
Gonzales said the talent exists in the
S UF receiving corps, but
they haven't worked,
hard enough. He com-
Si pared the UF receivers

;. :i'. /y eat Utah the last two
S"One of the reasons
Gonzales why we were so good
at the last place is be-
cause those guys worked," Gonzales said.
"They were overachievers. Now what I
need to get my guys here who are physi-
cally blessed talent-wise they need to
become overachievers. When we can do
that, I'll say we got a good group."
Jackson and redshirt junior Jemalle
Cornelius stood out for their work ethic,
Gonzales said. However, he wasn't happy
with Wednesday's practice effort.
"We're taking small steps; today, I
think we took a step back," he said.

It shouldn't be
expected that Coach
Carolyn Peck will
open up and tell ev-
eryone why she de-
cided to make what
she said was the "the
hardest decision I've
ever had to make as
a coach." Which is
think Urban Meyer
would tell us why a player got kicked off
the football team. I would like to think
Peck would do this as well.
No one is asking her to divulge all the
behind-the-scenes details or even get into
the situation at all. Only that it ma-be a
good idea to state the reason to the fans
that came to see Mosby play, who came
to see her become the 2004 Southeastern
Conference Sixth Woman of the Year and
then lead the team in points and rebounds
with 15.5 and 8.6, respectively, this sea-
I won't use the "we have a right to

the fact that the fans want to know.
If I had to make a prediction, I'd say
someone's going to find out the critical
"why" one way or another. Maybe it will
come from the basketball program. Maybe
it will come from Mosby while she's still
attending UF. Or maybe it will appear in
another college town's newspaper in the
event she transfers.
Hopefully, the fans will get the answer
Another important question in the
meantime is how the women's basketball
team is going to recover. One of the many
reasons Peck's decision was a hard one
was undoubtedly because Mosby was
productive. With the loss of Mosby and
