* THE PROPOSAL MAY COST
MORE THAN $16,000.
By EMILY YEHLE
The Gainesville Sun is on its
"hands and knees begging" Student
Government to pay more than
$16,000 for its newspapers to be
placed around campus for free, said'
Student Sen. Stephanie Ruby, who
has been involved in the negotia-
The Sun has approached SG
several times over the past few years
with a proposal to make its papers
available to students for free like The
New York Times and USA Today,
said Jim Miller, circulation director.
SG officials, including Student
Body Treasurer Dennis Ngin, have
been in talks with the Sun to distrib-
ute the paper throughout campus
during the Summer and Fall. Both
parties say the proposal is tentative.
For the Summer, the program
could cost students approximately
$4,000 for about 500 papers a day.
If the distribution is successful
during the Summer, SG officials
will consider a $12,500 program for
the Fall, where 1,250 papers a day
would be provided.
.All the money would come from
SG's tuition-funded reserves.
Furthermore, SG and the Sun
have talked about including a
two-page insert that Would be stu-
dent-oriented. The section would
probably be written by interns and
edited by the Sun's staff, Miller said.
Ruby said she envisioned the pages
including stories and advertise-
ments about organizations' events.
"This has the potential to be fun
and artsy at the same time as being
hard news," she said.
Both Miller and Ruby said the
section could create more opportu-
nities for students to get published.
Providing an alternative to the
Alligator also would help both pa-
pers probluce better stories, Ruby

in Tuesday's City
Commission race. Nine
candidates are vying for

times. See Opinions,
"My own view is that a little com-
petition is a good thing, and while
the Alligator is a great student news-
paper, it would push both newspa-
pers to check facts," she said.
However, Miller said he didn't
think the program would make the
Sun a competitor to the Alligator.
While the Alligator's circulation
is 39,000, most of which is distrib-
uted around campus, the Sun is only
talking about a little more than 1,000
papers a day, he added.
The free papers would provide a
service to students and increase the
Sun's circulation, which is appeal-
ing to its staff and advertisers, Miller
said. Furthermore, the Sun runs
more nationwide and state news
than the Alligator, he said.
"It's apparent to me that they're
so different," he said.
City Commission candidate and
=Student Mike Belle, who
Government has been push-
ing the proposal,
agrees that the additional paper will
add something different to campus.
The Sun, he said, would provide
students with stories by writers who
are "entrenched" in the local scene.
Although Ngin has been in-
volved in the talks with the Sun, he
said he is unsure of whether more
money should be poured into news-
papers when SG already spends
$40,000 a year to provide free New
York Times and USA Today newspa-
pers. Add to that the Alligator, and
students might have all their bases
covered, he said.
Belle said cost was the issue
when the Sun staff approached SG
executives last summer. Student
Senate had just spent $40,000 on the
readership program, and it was un-
clear how another similar program
would benefit the students.
Student Body President Jamal
Sowell decided not to pursue the
offer, said Belle and Student Body

CITY ELECTION ISSUES
Hopefuls talk traffic woes
By STEPHEN MAGRUDER
Traffic congestion, constant
road repair and severely limited
campus parking are among the
transportation-related issues the
candidates for the District 3 City
Commission seat say they are
ready to take on.
Seeking to continue represent-
ing the heavily student-popu-
lated areas west and-southwest of
UF, incumbent Tony Domenech
likened the city's roads to the
body's circulatory system.
"There's places where you
need good flow, and there's plac-
es where you don't," Domenech
He supports widening
Southwest 62nd Boulevard,-
which runs roughly parallel to
Interstate 75, saying the project
would take some of the strain
off the highway, which receives
12,000 to 15,000 cars daily solely
from travel between Newberry
and Williston roads.
"They're using 1-75 as a local
commuter that's not a good
idea," Domenech said.
A Gainesville resident for
nearly 40 years, he said the -city's
roads need major renovations.
"Our city roads are way,
way, way behind the curve,"
Domenech said, adding they
should be the focus of taxpayers'
But both challengers Mike
Belle and Jack Donovan said wid-
ening roads in some instances
would cause more traffic.
"They actually advertise to
motorists," Belle said.
He added that high-traffic
roads bordering UF's campus,
such as Southwest 34th Street and
Archer Road, would fill up even
if the roads were widened to six
or even eight lanes.
"Our city roads are way,
way, way behind the
Belle instead suggested work-
ing on parallel road projects,
such as the reconstruction of
Depot Avenue already underway,
which runs parallel to University
Avenue south of downtown.
Donovan said from what he
has heard, Gainesville residents
place a lot of importance on road
repair,-which he said he supports
but noted that wider roads can be
more dangerous for pedestrians
To promote city health,
Donovan said he wants to work
on improving some existing
roads to alleviate stress on others
while protecting neighborhoods
and local parks.
"A beautiful city is one that
people want to live in," Donovan
said, adding that the environment
should be considered during any
All three candidates empha-
sized the importance of increas-
ing the number of buses on
popular routes and ensuring bus
"For a transportation system
to work, it has to be reliable," he
To increase bus accountability,
Belle said he favors GPS tracking
systems on certain buses so stu-
dents could locate the bus they
planned to ride online before they
left for the bus stop.
Donovan, like the other can-
didates, said he sees increased
bus use as a means to avoiding
some of the parking problems at
UF. With about 48,000 students
at UF and only 12,000 parking
spaces, only about one out of
every four students can feasibly
drive to class.
The City Commission should
coordinate its transportation
plans with the university, he
Domenech, who attended
UF in the late '60s and '70s, said
parking has been a problem since
he was a student, but more buses
Belle, a bike enthusiast, sug-
gested alternative methods such
as biking and walking.

Thrall shares city vision
By BRIAN HAGEN
Alone on the debate stage due to District
2 incumbent Ed Braddy's absence from
Friday's forum, UF professor Grant Thrall
had an uninterrupted chance to attack his
opponent's record and
convey his positions.
Thrall did not support
.- .* suggestion of a student
adjunct, pointing out that
no other interest group,
such as cultural, gender
Thrall and racial factions, is
designated a special representative on the
"I don't believe there are roadblocks to
student participation fiow," he said.
The proposed 3 a.m. extension of bar
and club closings fared better, so long as
"at 2 o'clock, the tables are clear of alco-
hol." Police protection may have to be
increased to take care of the extra hour,
Gainesville's traffic congestion could be
solved by changing the working hours of
government employees, Thrall said, citing
the thousands who pour into UF's campus
at the same early morning hours.
"We don't t -need to throw hundreds of
millions of dollars at this," he said. "If we
had staggered working hours on campus,
we wouldn't have 12,500 cars on the road at
eight in the morning."
As a professor of business geogra-
phy and a real-estate market analyst,
Thrall participated in the design of the
University Corners project, a new mixed-
use shopping and residential complex
on the corner of University Avenue and,
Northwest 13th Street, which he said will
include 1,200 new parking spaces.
"I am part of solving the problem of
parking," he said, noting his membership
on the Downtown Redevelopment Agency.
Thrall said his educational expertise,
which has led him to write a book and work
with major consulting firms, makes him the
best candidate for improving business in
Hopefuls talk bar times
* UF "AS FAR FROM THE CITY AS
.XANADU," CANDIDATE SAID.
By BRIAN HAGEN
All registered Gainesville voters can
cast a ballot in the At-Large race Tuesday,
and incumbent Commissioner Rick
Bryant along with challengers Gabriel
Kaimowitz, Rob Brinkman and Diyonne
McGraw came to campus to give them a
reason to vote.
"The students have the numbers
to put a member on the city council,"
Bryant said. "Go vote Tuesday."
On extending bar closing hours until
3 a.m., Bryant said he will wait to "let
the experts do their homework" on the
Public Safety Committee before taking a
position. Kaimowitz cited what he sees
as the bigger problem.
"There is nothing but alcohol to attract
students downtown," he said, proposing
alternative entertainment downtown.
Brinkman supported implementing
a "responsible vendor program," which
would prohibit the purchase of more
than one drink at a time for of-age pa-
trons, as well as later closing times for
non-alcohol-serving dance clubs, which
also must close at 2 a.m.
"I don't think we
have any right to
do this," he said. "I
call it the 'Footloose
arrived after the anti-
rave ordinance debate,
Brinkman said she supported a
student adjunct posi-
tion to promote a diversity of voices on
the City Commission.
As to the town-gown relations be-
tween UF -and Gainesville, Kaimowitz
cited the- "breakdown in communica-
tion" as the reason he decided to run.
"This university is as far from the city
as Xanadu," Kaimowitz concluded.

of course, for Jack Donovan, whose
colorful, butterfly tie skyrocketed him
to the top of our best-dressed list.
In order to provide the students

box, we held half-hour-long interviews
with each candidate or, as we like to
call them, the longest 30 minutes of our
lives. We provided the candidates with
an opportunity to tell us about them-
selves, why they are running and what
issues they felt are most important to
the student body and the community.
As students in Gainesville, it is easy
for us to write the City Commission
off as a bunch of disgruntled residents
trying to ruin our attempts at drunken
debauchery and illicit sex. On the
contrary, the commission has a lot
of power over students, particularly
when it comes to extending bar hours
and tackling the dance-hall ordinance.
Although we were happy to see a
fellow Gator running for the commis-
sion, Mike Belle's presentation was less
than convincing. We would describe
Belle as a wannabe Kennedy in a bad
suit. Belle is a person with an agenda,
but talking to him was reminiscent of
listening to Charlie Brown's teacher -
you know, "Whaa woh wawawawah
woh woh wha." We understand the
need for students to get involved in
city affairs, but when your campaign
centers on a program entitled "Better
Gators, Better Neighbors," you have
some issues. While we do support a
student voice on the commission, we
don't want it to be him. Aside from the
fact that he has little to no experience
when it comes to city government, a
main tenet of his platform was that his
lack of a family would allow him to
spend all of his time on the job. Forgive
me, but shouldn't a person on the com-
mission have ties to the community?
In the end, Belle was little more than
Gainesville's own Ralph Nader a
man with lots of ideas but no concrete
plan to resolve any of the city's woes.
Although we are sure this has been
helpful to the five UF students who
will vote, we would like to see more
student involvement in the city. The
next time you complain about last call
at a bar, we want you to remember
who is responsible for setting those
guidelines. The next time you com-
plain about the crappy roads or the un-
godly traffic, make a mental note of the
last time you took the time to vote for
anything, let alone city government.
Come on Gators, get up and vote.

Not another election to not care about.
It seems like every time I pick up the
Alligator, the editorial screams at me to
vote for someone who may or may not exist, for
all I know, so I can "make a difference." "
Why can't they understand I just want to sit
around in a beanbag chair eating potato chips,
watching football and thinking about getting
drunk tonight? What else could a UF student
possibly care about?
I can't possibly be bothered to take five min-
utes out of my day to vote for city commission-

City Commission District 3 incumbent candidate Tony
Domenech told the Alligator editorial board about a
meeting in which city representatives attempted to set
aside students' interests because students "were just passing
Domenech then asked representatives in the room to raise
their hands if they attended UF. Almost everyone did.
His response was, "We're not passing through."
It is this commitment to the connection of UF, students and
the city that sets Domenech apart from the other candidates.
The exchange between education and the community is
especially familiar to him, as he and his wife both educators
ran an educational software company for about 20 years. In
addition, he has been a special-education teacher and a football
coach and we Gators love an ol' ball clach.
He also has proven he's willing to listen to students and
consider issues they feel are important. For instance, he now
stresses a detailed investigation into the possibility of extended
bar closing times and a plan to resolve traffic-flow issues.
Still not convinced that Domenech is in tune with the stu-
dents? If you happened to see a talkative old guy hanging out
at The Swamp Restaurant or Orange & Brew on the night of the
Student Government runoff elections, that was him.
UF professor and District 2 candidate Grant Thrall knows
that students care about more than drinking, partying
and hooking up they also care about making money
so they can afford to drink, party and, afterward, hook up.
His dedication to his students and his status as a business-
location expert make us believe he can help Gainesville attract
more of the entry-level jobs that students fight over every se-
Even better, Thrall is the only candidate who speaks out
about problems with parking in the city and UF which stu-
dents can attest to all too well.
He has circumvented the problem by riding to work on a
Harley-Davidson motorcycle a la President Machen, but he has
designs on improving things for those with a. bit less of a wild
His believes University Comers a mixed-use develop-
ment planned for the intersection of University Avenue and
Northwest 13th Street can help to satisfy both of these goals
by providing retail jobs for students as well as possibly renting
out the many parking spaces that are included in the project.
How can you argue with someone who wants to get you a
job and make it easier for you to find a place to park?
C candidates for At-Large Seat 2 Robert Brinkman and
Diyonne McGraw agreed on a number of issues '-- all
of which, they said, incumbent Rick Bryant faltered on
during his term in office.
The issue that left the biggest impression on the editorial
board was the panhandling ordinance that recently was insti-
tuted by the commission and for which Bryant voted. While
Gainesville residents have a right to not be unduly harassed
when walking city streets, there is no call for making it illegal
to hold up a sign at an intersection. Does anyone believe that
political party supporters or groups seeking donations will be
held to the same standard under this stipulation as homeless
veterans trying to scrounge up enough change for a bite to eat?
While we feel Brinkman is more experienced and more
capable than McGraw, we were glad to see that the two were
willing to cooperate when they thought something was going
wrong in our city government. Both emphatically said they
would support the other in a runoff against Bryant.
The telling moment in our meeting with Brinkman was
when he supported the idea, without our provocation, of stu-
dents taking access into their own hands by electing a student to
the District 3 seat, which heavily consists of students.

Definition of humanity under question
M artin Niem6ller, German theologian and Protestant
pastor, famously said, "In Germany they first came
for the Communists, and I didn't speak up because
I wasn't a Communist. Then they came forthe Jews, and I
didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for
the trade unionists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a
trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn't
speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me
- and by that time no one was left to speak up."
An American version today might read, "In America,,
they first came for the fetuses, and I didn't speak up because
I wasn't a fetus. Then they came for.people in a persistent
vegetative state, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't in a
persistent vegetative state ...."
The Terri Schiavo case has given us an opportunity to
examine the most fundamental question: What makes us hu-
man? How one answers.this question determines how one
will respond to the most important issues of our day: issues
of life and death.
So what does make us human? The humanists and secu-
larists, for the most part, say it is our minds that separate hu-
man from beast.
This view is expressed well by Richard Carrier, an au-
thor, historian and philosopher. He writes, "... the fetus
does not become truly neurologically active until the fifth
month (an event we call "quickening"). This activity might
only be a generative one, i.e. the spontaneous nerve pulses
could merely be autonomous or spontaneous reflexes aimed
at stimulating and developing muscle and organ tissue.
Nevertheless, it is in this month that a complex cerebral
cortex, the one unique feature of human in contrast with
animal-- brains, begins to develop, and is typically complete,
though still growing, by the sixth month .... "
To-this camp, it is neurological activity that makes us hu-
man. From this understanding of humanity, comes the next
logical step: to treat those who do not measure up to the defi-
nition of human as inferior entities and, therefore, in need of
S. less, if any, protection.
Schiavo, after all, is being "al-
lowed to die" because she doesn't
--. ; measure up. to neurologists' defi-
nition of humanity.. She is a "veg-
etable," not a human.
Jason Levitt Florida law gives a specific defi-
The Watchtower nation the state of a non-human a
email@example.com vegetable: "The absence of volun-
tary action or cognitive behavior of
any kind. An inability to communi-
cate or interact purposely with the environment."
Abortion also is acceptable given this definition of hu-
manity. Medical ethicist Bonnie Steinbock explains, "If we're
talking about life in the biological sense, eggs are alive, sperm
are alive. Cancer tumors are alive. For me, what matters is
this: When does it have the moral status of a human being?
When does it have some kind of awareness of its surround-
ings? When it can feel pain, for example, because that's one
of the most brute kinds of awareness there could be. And that
happens, interestingly enough, just around the time of viabil-
ity. It certainly doesn't happen with an embryo."
The other camp believes it is a soul that separates the hu-
man from the animal. The soul cannot be measured in any
scientific setting, so the other camp derides a belief in it as
superstitious, or even extreme.
The difference in these two views of humanity cannot
be reconciled. Therefore, the issues, that dig down into the
marrow of what we define as human life will not go away.
But those people who support the "choice" of abortion and
euthanasia should be forewarned.
There have been many others who-have tried to divide
humanity into desirables and undesirables, or redefine some
people as sub-humans. History, however, has not looked too
kindly on these people.

Letters to the Editor
Social problems are exploited in politics
Editor: There is a big problem in politics
today, and I think Andrew Meyer brought up
a very valid point in his Friday column. Where
does the tackling of the real problems begin?
When will the solving of our social problems
outweigh a politician's effort for re-election?
Our representatives have a responsibility to
protect people's rights and privileges, but
when they start ignoring bigger problems
like poverty and unemployment for more at-
tractive PR issues like the Terri Schiavo case,
it shows how truly self-serving party politics
have become. It would be unfair to blame just
the Republicans in this case or Democrats in
another when the press is more to blame.
Let's send a different message out to our
future leaders and hold our representatives ac-
countable for setting an example. By tackling
the issues that affect the masses and protecting
the governing rights of specialized agencies,
we can insure cases like Schiavo's are properly
filtered without being cheapened by politicos
vying for air time to have their face associated
with the issue so they aren't left out come elec-
tion day. It's time to get back to the real issues
that will make real differences in America.
Let's all hope President Bush's visit to
Russia in May will be covered as a trip to
address policy issues and a struggling interna-
tional relationship rather than being mistaken
by the press as a tour to gain supporters for
Schiavo's family or to get signatures for an
anti-steroid petition in baseball.

I am not a fraternity member, nor am I a

Easter brawl erupts
By ELIZABETH PRANN
In the early morning hours of
Easter Sunday, a fight broke out in
the midst of a crowd of approxi-
mately 100 people near downtown
Gainesville, according to reports.
About 30 minutes after last call at
area bars and clubs, two unruly par-
tiers engaged in an altercation about
eight blocks west of Main Street that
resulted in two arrests, Gainesville
Police reports state.
At 2:30 a.m., the incident initially
involved about 10 people within
about a two-block radius of 800 and
900 W. University Ave., according to
reports, which characterized it as
a "large, long-lasting disturbance"
that went on for more than 10 min-
Gainesville resident Keionda
Monique Sherman, of 7105 SW 57th
Road, and an Archer man, Tarcel
Divon King of 523 Broadwalk Blvd.,
were allegedly fighting and instigat-
ing others to take part in the two-
block area, reports state.
Authorities warned Sherman,-
19, to leave the scuffle, according
The two were then arrested at the
scene for fighting, a misdemeanor
offense, reports state. After he was
taken into custody, King reportedly
spit on the dashboard and front win-
dow of the patrol vehicle. -
Officers stated in the reports that
the fight endangered people in the
area, and they did what was neces-
sary to maintain order.
King and Sherman were booked
into the Al4chua County Jail at about
4 a.m. Sunday.
Students see slice of UF life
By NATALIE KOULOUVARIS
Alligator Contributing Writer
The National Society. of Collegiate
Scholars held its annual March to College
on Friday, bringing approximately 120 sev-
enth graders and 30 high school students to
roam UF's campus.
Shanteria Dixon, vice president of plan-
ning for the College Success Mentoring pro-
gram and coordinator of March to College,
said the purpose of the day is to encourage
underprivileged seventh graders to seek a
higher education after graduation.
"Many of the students we mentor are
raised to believe 'college is not for them and
only for the rich kids whose parents went to
college, too," Dixon said.
Students from, Howard W. Bishop
Middle School, Abraham Lincoln Middle
School and Eastside High School participat-
ed in group-building activities and listened
to athlete speakers and student volunteers
talk about financial aid, clubs and organiza-
tions on campus.
Usually students take tours of campus
to give a broad view of what college is like.
However, due to the rainy weather, the
tours were canceled.
Instead, members from Beta Eta Sigma
Black Honor Society came to talk about
their experiences and answer questions.
Delta-Sigma Theta Sorority members also
entertained the students with dance and
"Many of the students we mentor
are raised to believe college is not
for them and only for the rich kids
whose parents went to college,
March to College coordinator
NSCS member Jacqui Mullings said the
march was a good way to get students ex-
cited about college and show them the dif-
ferent opportunities available.
"It was always a plan of mine to go to
college, but I didn't really start thinking
about it until freshman year of high school,"
Mullings said. "If I had been to something
like this, I would have had a better sense of
what was ahead of me."

The Sun, he said, would provide students with

Although Ngin has been involved, in the talks
with the Sun, he said he is unsure of whether more
money should be poured into newspapers when
SG already spends $40,000 a year to provide free

Belle said cost was the issue when the Sun staff

program would benefit the students.
Student Body President Jamal Sowell decided
not to pursue the offer, said Belle and Student Body
President-elect Joe Goldberg, who was the Student

able for comment.
Goldberg said he supported the program,
which would include a student-oriented Web
"I think it's great," he said. "I think students
need another outlet besides the Alligator."
Goldberg said he would continue the talks
when he takes his position in May but promised
to continue the current readership program,
which must be funded annually.
Although the Sun has never had a deal with
SG, several versions of the two-page insert have
occurred over the years.
Once students wrote a few pages at the Sun as
part of a journalism course, said William McKeen,

Lochte ties Auburn. team in event wins
Relays ended early
For the beginning of the outdoor
season, the UF men's track and field
team may have gotten their feet a little
wetter than they had planned on.
The 62nd annual Florida Relays
were cut short after rain delays and a
cancellation of all events on Saturday.
Despite the weather, Alex Harris
posted a NCAA-regional qualifying
mark in the long jump and the men's
,rlay teams scored first-place times on
both the 4x200-meter and 4x1500-meter
"It wasn't really about the victories,"
men's head coach Mike Holloway said.
"It's always nice to win, but I was really
satisfied by the effort of the guys that
ran in those relays."
The Gators also dominated in the
5000-meter run as Henok Lechebo,
Brent Schneider and Ryan Leary scored
three of the four best times.
The Gators finished fourth in the
women's 4x200-meter-relay (1:33.48).
UF didn't fare much better in the
women's 4x1500-meter relay as the
Gators finished fifth (19:14.83).
In pole vault action, Chandra
Lacombe and Chelo Canino posted re-
gional qualifying marks of 3.97 meters
and 3.80 meters, respectively.
SWIM from page 20
Lochte earned Swimmer of the Meet hon-
ors for the first time in his career during
the event.. Though he finished second
for the first time all year in the 100-yard
backstroke, Lochte still won two more in-
Amidst all the records that Lochte has
set, Troy says that he is never surprised
about Lochte breaking records. Still, after
swimming events that he does not nor-
mally partake in and having the success
that he'does, Lochte is becoming one of the
marquee figures in college swimming.
"During this meet Ryan was fantas-
tic," Troy said. "He really showed a lot
of toughness and character during the
Even with Lochte earning as many indi-
vidual titles as the entire Auburn team did,
it was not a big enough cushion for the
Gators to finish in the top three.
After finishing sixth twice in a row
before this fifth-place finish, Troy said the
Gators will have to receive more contribu-
tions from other swimmers to improve
"It was a great season," Troy said. "We
wanted to be a little bit better at the end,
but-we'll go back and start working on a
few things for next year."
UF still working on running game
FOOTBALL, from page 20
haven't done much to dispel the worry,
tailbacks Wynn, Skyler Thornton and newly-
arrived Anthony Gay, who took last year off
after attending Jones High in Orlando, each
recorded runs of 10 yards or more.
UF's defense also played as well, if
not better than, the offense. In addition to
Jackson's hard hits, Meyer lauded the per-
formance of defensive tackle Ray McDonald,
who played through a minor ankle sprain.
One defender, whom Meyer dubbed his
favorite player earlier this month, isn't so
' thrilled with UF's practice defense.
Standout freshman linebacker Brandon
Siler griped about, the playing time of the
Meyer's spread offense requires fewer de-
fending linebackers than former coach Ron
Zook's, often leaving Siler stranded during
"Right now, I'm frustrated because I'm
not on all the plays getting to the ball every
time," Siler said. "It just really restricts how
much the linebackers can get in there."
IANNINGS, from page 20
These plays are crazy.
Cornelius is also convinced.
"It's going to throw [SEC defenses]
off because we have a lot of different
direction plays," he said. "We have a
lot of different options; we don't have
plays that just go one way. If you over-
pursue it, we're going to come over
around the backside."
But aren't SEC defenses a lot faster
than Mountain West Conference de-
fenses? Sure. But that doesn't matter,
according to Cornelius.
"Speed on speed usually the of-
fense wins," he said.
The offense looked kind of sloppy
on Saturday. It reminded me of Ron
_ Zook trying trick plays and them back-
firing every time. The Gators fumbled
a few times and dropped a shovel pass.
These mistakes are correctable, to use a
But once they are fixed, watch out.
When a quarterback has three options
on a base play, it's going to be fun to
watch. More importantly, the triple
threat is going to force defenses to try
to be everywhere at once.
"The threat of option, the threat of a
guy scrambling, the threat of a guy out
of the pocket is for real, and that's what
we need in this offense," Meyer said.
For real is right..

And it wasn't even close.
UF (17-7, 5-1 SEC) took fourth place for the
second consecutive year with a 196.05, their lowest
score since the first weekend in February.
"It's still tough [to take]," UF coach Rhonda
Faehn said. "It's definitely some-
thing that the coaching staff and
the team are going to take a while
to get over."
No. 8 Georgia breezed .to its
second consecutive title with a
197.25, easily outpacing second-
place Louisiana State's 196.975.
No. 5 Alabama finished third
Faehn at 196.7.
The Gators started the meet with a bye. High-
scoring opening routines by Georgia and LSU on
floor exercise and vault, however, immediately
placed the Gators in catch-up mode.
After recording its third-best total of the season
on uneven bars, 49.125, UF faltered on balance
beam, an event on which the Gators were ranked
No. 3 nationally. The 48.975 score marked the first
time UF failed to break 49 on the event since its meet
at Georgia on Feb. 4.
"We started out really well on bars, and then
they got a little bit tight on beam," Faehn said. "I
think that when we started to focus in on scores, it
started to affect them mentally, that they were a little
bit behind the ball on being able to win and we let
that get to us."
While the Gators rebounded- slightly on floor
exercise, they turned in their worst performance of
the year on vault. Just like the balance beam woes,
UF failed to break 49 on vault for the first time all

UF downs 'Cocks, takes series
* SOUTH CAROLINA SHUT OUT
THE GATORS ON FRIDAY.
By TIM CASEY
The UF baseball team survived a
Friday night scare to win its first confer-
ence series of the season, largely due to
the rubber arm of Connor Falkenbach.
The Gators (19-7, 3-3 Southeastern
Conference) won their weekend series
against then-No. 6 South Carolina (19-
5, 2-4 SEC) 2-1 after being shut out at
home on Friday 2-0. It was the first time
UF was shut out at home since April 16,
1999, against Kentucky.
On Sunday, the No. 11 Gators won
its first conference series of the season
in convincing fashion, defeating the
Gamecocks 6-1 and out-hitting the op-
Senior right-hander Connor
Falkenbach pitched five scoreless in-
nings in relief to earn his first victory of
"It's hard losing on Friday night,"
Falkenbach said. "You want to win
Friday night to get a good start to the
weekend. We just put Friday night
behind us. We just came out and tried
to win Saturday and Sunday because
you'll win the series if you do that."
Falkenbach pitched in all three
games, not allowing a run in 8.1 innings,
but says he'll be ready to pitch against
Florida State on Wednesday.
Falkenbach entered the game with
no outs and two runners on in the fifth
inning, but got out of the jam left by
starting pitcher Alan Home.
"[Alan] battled back after that first
inning where he struggled a little bit,"
Falkenbach said. "After that, he threw
great. I had to come in there and stop
them from scoring a few runs, and I was
able to do that."
Home struggled in the first inning,
but did not allow a hit in his next three
"I'm still working to get better,"
Home said. "I didn't really make it that
deep in the game again. I'm still very
frustrated by that. I just need to get off
to better starts with lower pitch counts
and go deeper into the game."

Softball sweeps Ole Miss, extends win streak to 13
By WILLIS JACOBSON
After waiting weeks to return to its home
field, the No. 14 UF softball team (27-6, 6-0
Southeastern Conference) was forced to wait a
little longer before it could actually play on it.
The Gators finally were able to take the
field after Saturday's game time was changed
from noon to 8 p.m. en route to a three-game
sweep of Mississippi (21-14, 3-6 SEC). The
sweep extended UF's win streak to 13 games,
the longest in school history.
The Gators outscored the Rebels by a com-
bined score of 19-2, including a 12-0 victory in
"We were glad to get three wins," Coach
Karen Johns said. "I thought we played great
defense the whole weekend and we had great
pitching and that carried us through. We dealt
with some adversity with the weather, though,
and I thought we did a good job handling
Along with solid pitching and defense,
UF's bats were as hot as ever. Led by junior
Lindsey Cameron, who homered in each
. game and drove in nine of the team's 19 runs,
the Gators out-hit the Rebels by a margin of
28-11. Nine of those hits came in the seven-
run second inning of game two, in whichthe
Gators sent 12 batters to the plate.
"We had" great at-bats; there were only
maybe a couple that I wasn't satisfied with,"
Johns said. "We just have to do a better job
getting on early, and not having to hit so much
with two outs."
Cameron, whose three home runs gave her
10 for the season andc'23 for her career, is only
five short of tying the UF career record.
The Gators will return to action on Tuesday
when they continue their homestand against
No. 10 Alabama (36-7, 9-3 SEC).
