UF seeks regulation of alcohol use
* FOUR UF STUDENTS HAVE DIED
OF ALCOHOL-RELATED INCIDENTS
IN LESS THAN TWO YEARS.
By STEPHANIE GARRY
Alligator Staff Writer
At least four UF students have died of
alcohol-related causes since UF President
Bernie Machen was appointed to lead UF
in Fall 2003, adding urgency to UF and
Gainesville's joint struggle to curb student
alcohol abuse. Another student, who re-
portedly was drinking, died following a
Jacksonville football game last October.
Christopher Small died in the early
morning of Jan. 28 after his car crashed
into a telephone pole on Northwest 34th
Street. Autopsy reports show that his
blood alcohol limit was
the legal limit. Small's
former roommate has
said that the UF junior
had gone to the club:08
earlier that night.

binge drinking, which
began at Machen's urging in January, has
consisted mostly of meetings and discus-
sions so far. Other than Machen's refusal

E THE COMPLAINT ALLEGED SG OF-

SWITCH PARTY AFFILIATIONS.
By STEPHEN MAGRUDER
More than a month after taking control
of an investigation alleging bribery and
corruption in the Student Government
election, the Student Judicial Affairs
office said it has not yet found enough
information to file any conduct violation
An adviser to the
Student Body presi-
dent initially filed a
complaint ,with the
Department last month,
claiming that Impact
Williams Party supporters were
bribed to jump ship and
support the Gator Party.
Citing a lack of proof to pursue crimi-
nalcharges, UPD handed the case over
to Judicial Affairs, which says it also has
conducted a.thorough investigation.
"Certainly, it was something of inter-
est it is something of interest," Judicial
Affairs Director Cyrus Williams said of
"At this point, we have not charged
anybody, and we're [going to] continue
to investigate," he added.
So far, five people both named
and not named in the initial complaint
have been interviewed, Williams said.

UF group to aid quake victims
S IB Syndicated Content

By JOHN W. COX
Alligator Contributing Writer
Victims from Monday's earth-
quake in Indonesia that may
have killed thousands will not go
without help from Gainesville.
The earthquake was the sec-
ond major disaster the region has
suffered in the past four months.
A Dec. 26 earthquake and sub-
sequent tsunami killed at least
175,000 people and left 106,000
missing in Southeast Asia.
Gators for Tsunami Relief,
a coalition of 22 UF student
organizations, intends to aid
victims of the earthquake, said
Preeti Sharma, organization co-
The coalition began rais-
ing money for tsunami relief in
"Every week we've collected a
couple thousand dollars for about
two months," Sharma said.
The coalition plans to send
a check for more than $600 to
the humanitarian organization
Direct Relief International this
week, said Linh Nguyen, the
group's head of finances.
"We're still collecting money
for the relief, and people are still
giving money," she said.
UF's Asian Student Union will
also contribute to the cause, said
ASU Treasurer Sandy Chiu.
ASU President Mark Villegas,
who also helped create the relief
coalition, said support for earth-
quake victims would also be
"I think collecting money
should definitely be a priority,"
Villegas said. "That's what we've
been successful doing so far."
Villegas said he thought form-

on our part as
students and people who may
have their families over there,"
he said. "It's a humane cause."
The coalition has raised more
than $11,000 for tsunami victims
and may divert some funds to
"We'll definitely be getting in
contact with the other organiza-
tions to see what we can do for
this earthquake," said Kshama
Shah, secretary of one of the
coalition groups, the UF South
Asian Student Alliance.
Although the area has suf-
fered extensive damage, it may
not compare to .the December
catastrophe because no tsunamis
formed after the earthquake.
"It seems this earthquake did
not trigger a tsunami. If it had,
the tsunami would have hit the
coastline of Sumatra by. now,"
said Prihar Yadi, a scientist
with the Indonesia Geophysics
Agency. "And if there's no tsu-

Tsunamis were not a factor
after Monday's earthquake be-
cause it was much deeper than

geology professor Joe Meert.
Meert said there may be no
end in sight for the area.
"There are going to be large af-

Meert said. "This one was prob-

Study: Loan companies find easy targets in U.S. military
By SKYLER SMITH
Payday advance companies
across the country are targeting
military personnel and their fami-
lies, according to a UF study.
These loan companies, which
give quick cash advances with
high interest rates, are dispropor-
tionately collected around military
bases, said Christopher Peterson,
an assistant professor at UF's
Levin College of Law.
"Payday loan companies vocif-
erously deny that they are target-
ing military personnel, but the
numbers show that they do," he
said in a release. "It's sad enough
to see someone get into financial
trouble because someone lent him
money at more than 400 percent
interest. It's even worse when that
borrower is a person who is fight-
ing to protect our freedom."
The study was conducted across
20 states at 109 military bases.
The researchers consistently
found that ZIP codes near military
bases had higher numbers of pay-
day loan companies than ZIP codes
with similar demographic makeup
that did not have the bases.
Payday advances work through
loaning small amounts of money
that are leveraged against work-
ers'- paychecks. For example, a
$100 loan may be given, with the
agreement that $115 will be repaid
in two weeks. If the loan cannot be
repaid, a. rollover occurs and the
interest keeps building.
At this rate, the average' an-
nual interest on payday loans is
450 percent, Peterson said. As a
comparison, the average annual
interest rate for credit cards has
fluctuated recently between 13 and
14 percent, according to a Federal
Reserve statistical release.
The reason that military men
and women are targeted for these
"predatory loans" is because they
are a vulnerable group, Peterson
They tend to be young, "rela-

CBS foreign correspondent David Gilbert speaks at the Hillel Center on Tuesday. Gilbert'
shared his experiences, views on international journalism and the possibility for peace.
Gilbert, who has reported from Israel
and other Middle Eastern nations, talked
about the media's tendency to report only
on violence in Israel.
"Life is actually very good there," he
said, adding that he enjoys living there be-
cause people seem to live their lives fully..
On the other hand, he said, violence is

"There's no way to fully divorce your-
self from the events going on around you,"
The other challenges Gilbert discussed,
such as sorting lies from fact and remain-

in the Middle East.
However, he said, there are other mod-
els of journalism, such as those in which
publications openly take a stance on cer-

Blockbuster fee policy dispute ends in settlement
By JESSICA RIFFEL
Alligator Contributing Writer
Florida and 47 other states
reached an agreement Tuesday
with Blockbuster Inc. to settle alle-
gations that it deceived customers
with its "No Late Fees" policy.
In the settlement, Blockbuster
agreed to pay $630,000 to the states
for attorney fees, costs of litigation
and consumer protection programs.
According to the settlement, the
advertising of the program, which
began Dec. 15, did not clearly
specify that customers would be
charged if they kept rental materi-
als past a seven-day grace period.
Under the "No Late Fees" pol-
icy enacted Jan. 1, after the grace
period a rental would be treated
as a purchase, and the customer
would be charged the retail value
of the video minus the rental fee.
If the video was returned with-
in 30 days, the customer would
be refunded the cost of the movie
but still would be charged a $1.25
This policy was not put into
effect in any of the Blockbuster
video stores in Gainesville. The
Blockbusters at 1310 NW 23rd
Ave., 3416 SW Archer Road and
4994 NW 39th Ave. are franchise

Instead, the Gainesville
Blockbuster locations chose a dif-
ferent type of policy, the Movie

ers pay a monthly fee to rent up to
three-movies at a time.
"There's no due dates, no late
fees, and there's never a time we
convert it into a sale, as long as the
monthly fee is being paid," Cohen
However, the corporate "No
Late Fees" advertising ran on net-
works in Florida, reaching audienc-
es in areas where the Blockbuster
video stores are non-participating
franchise operations.-This occurred
in Gainesville, where customers
saw the commercials and expected
the "No Late Fees" program at the
three Gainesville locations.
"I thought there were no late
fees, but I had [the 39th Ave.
Blockbuster] send me bills for late
fees after seeing the advertise-
ments for the end of late fees,"
customer Perscilla Ritenour said.
Due to the confusion the policy
has caused, the Tuesday settle-
ment allowed for customers who
incurred late fees at non-partici-"
pating franchise stores to fill out
coupon request forms at the stores
to receive rental coupons.

Legislature is after more
student funds in new bill
T he Florida Legislature is looking more and more like a
junkie father who can't keep himself out of his children's
In this case, students at state universities are playing the role
of the helpless children who only can watch as their already-
slim life savings are taken away.
The latest example of the state government's callous attitude
toward students is a bill making its way through the Florida
Senate. Under the bill, which was approved Monday by the
Senate Education Committee, in-state students would have to
pay out-of-state tuition for any credits more than their degree
requires plus an additional 18.
The committee's reasoning is that delinquent students are
sticking around longer than necessary, which is causing the
state to lose money and decreasing the number of prospective
students that can be accepted.
This is, of course, the same rationale it uses for block tu-
ition and other initiatives intended to "encourage" students to
graduate in four years.
Don't let them fool you: This isn't an effort to encourage stu-
dents to graduate on time; it's an effort to milk every last cent
out of already financially-burdened students.
If the only students affected by this were those trying to
squeeze in as many keg parties as they can while still on the
state government's dime, the Legislature's arguments would
But what about students who want to double-major? What
about students who want to add multiple minors to augment
their degrees? What about students who decide to switch ma-
jors in their third or even fourth years?
This is only one short step away from legislation that would
require students to stick with whichever major they are in after
their first two years or so.
Whatever the benefits of that may be to the state's coffers
- and legislators likely would drool over such a concept the
costs to the academic freedom of students are unacceptable.
Even if legislation like the proposed bill does cause more stu-
dents to graduate on time, what does this mean for the future
of the state?
One of the primary goals of the State University System is to
provide an education for Florida students so they will eventu-
ally become contributing members of state society.
If graduating high school students face the prospect of block
tuition, tuition penalties for taking too long to earn their degrees
and other superfluous charges, what's the impetus going to be
for them to. stay here?
While school spirit runs particularly high in our state, the
real motivation for Florida students to attend Florida universi-
ties is because they offer a good education at a bargain price.
UF did not become an elite university because its faculty and
facilities suddenly became top-notch. UF became a top univer-
sity because it offers an unmatched academic value. You have to
pay big bucks to get this kind of education elsewhere.
If these ever-growing fees and penalties continue to increase,
students will have less and less reason to enroll here. Florida's
finest no longer will stay in Florida.
For now, we only can hope that the Florida Student
Association and our newly-elected Student Government rep-
resentatives can talk some sense into those who see students
as a source of quick income instead of the future members of

The case is MGM v. Grokster. More than 30 music and
film companies heavy-hitters like Warner Bros., Disney,
Fox and Universal have taken aim at Grokster and
StreamCast, which offer Internet file-sharing programs.
The issue is whether technology companies can be
held liable for what their customers do with their prod-
uct. Specifically, does a technology's manufacturer have a
secondary liability if their customer uses their product 'to
infringe a copyright? MGM says "yes;" common sense, legal
precedent, personal liberty and entrepreneurial innovation
Let's have a look, shall we?
John has a car. He bought it from a dealership, which
bought it from Ford. John drives that car to a liquor store,
robs it and drives away. The dealer and Ford are held respon-
sible for the robbery.
Here's another: Jane has a gun. She bought it from a gun
store, which bought it from Smith & Wesson. Jane goes to
class and shoots her professor with the gun. The store and the
manufacturer are held responsible for the murder.
All this makes perfect sense, right? Except for the fact that,
well, no, it doesn't make any damn sense at all.
If the gun manufacturer advertised their product with
disaffected, trenchcoat-wearing teenagers as their spokes-
men, or used the slogan "Kills Lincoln dead," maybe there'd
be a case. But a lot of car commercials show people driving
awfully fast is BMW responsible for my speeding tickets?
'Manufacturers should not be subject to liability for their
customer's actions merely because they offer a technol-
ogy. This is the logic we extend to guns vis-a-vis homicide
- surely human life values more than protecting Britney

people do illegal things with it.
Understandably, the content industry wants to protect
their copyright, but there's more than copyright at play here.

Bill is harmful to open exchange of ideas
Editor: What is with Republicans lately?
Have all the problems in Florida been solved?
Do the Republicans have nothing better to do
with their time than propose ridiculous bills
like the Academic Freedom Bill of Rights? This
bill, which is aimed at getting rid of "leftist
totalitarianism," seems downright suspicious.
Professors should have the freedom to ex-
press ideas and thoughts in the classroom that
are both popular and unpopular.. It's impor-
tant for students to think and to consider new
ideas even when those ideas are extremely dif-
ferent from those they were raised to believe.
Unfortunately, there are some professors
who believe their ideas are the only ones that
should be considered, and they may harass
students whose opinions are at odds with the
However, universities have policies in
place that deal with this. If a professor is far
out in left field and is forcing their views upon
a student to the point that it is harming the
learning environment, the student has the
right to complain. A chain of command exists,
and students are encouraged to use it.
The system works more often than not, and
it's important that the procedures universities
have in place be followed, rather than resort-
ing to government intervention resulting in an
increasingly licentious society.
The idea that the bill would introduce a
"right to sue" by students who feel their beliefs
are not being respected is very dangerous.
If the state opens this door, it never can
be closed, and the academic freedom our
state government claims it strongly supports
slowly will cease to exist. If professors have
to worry that they will be sued because they
teach in a manner or content that may make
a student uncomfortable, then the professors
have no choice but to restrict their teaching in
both content and style. When they do this, the
quality of teaching will all but disappear. And
when the quality of the teaching disappears,
so does the quality of the students.
While there are a few professQrs, both liber-
al and conservative, who abuse the openness
allowed by academic freedom, the majority of
professors are good at what they do and are
quite successful in giving students the tools
they need to go forth in the world and make a
significant contribution to society.
The objective of a good university should
be to foster the open exchange of ideas, both
in and out of the classroom, formally and
informally between students and faculty. It is
important to preserve this exchange of ideas in
.order to set forth intelligent young people into
the world who will make a positive impact in
society. A university is only as good as its stu-
dents and, if those whose job it is to educate
are limited by intrusive laws, which are by
their very definition totalitarian in nature,
then the -university as we know it is doomed
and the ripple effect throughout society would
Just look at what government intrusion
has done to the Florida public school system;
there's really, no better example from which
we can learn.

Right to free will is the real issue in case
Editor: It always astounds me when I am
confronted with the ignorance upon which
normally intelligent people base their most
In Jason Levitt's latest column, he parrots
the same line as the religious right, which says
Terri Schiavo is being "allowed to die" be-
cause, in her state, she no longer possesses the
functions of a human being. I'm sorry, Levitt,
but no one has ever said Schiavo should die
because she is no longer human. On the con-
trary, events have played out as they have be-
cause Schiavo exercised the one ability given
to us by God that makes us distinctly human:
Upon creation, God gave us the ability to
decide for ourselves the paths our lives would
take. We are the ones in control of our desti-
nies. After 15 years and numerous court bat-
tles, judge after judge has decided the person,
who knew her wishes best is also the person
who, has the legal right to make such decisions
for Schiavo: her husband, Michael. For all of
his supposed bias in wanting her dead, he has
declined the insurance money from her family,
a divorce to marry his girlfriend and offers of
$1.5 million and $10 million to buy his power
Michael also earned a nursing degree to
help care for his wife. In light of all of this, it
seems he cares more about honoring Schiavo's
free will than anything else, but don't tell this
to the radical religious right. They can't be
confused with the facts when it comes to this
Does anyone else see the arrogance of
thinking we all know what Schiavo wanted
better than her own husband did, especially
when most of us had never even heard of her
before this fiasco? One of the saddest stories
of this whole affair is how this woman's last
days were turned into the circus that they
became because of people too self-righteous
to keep sight of what really makes us human:
our free will.
Sometimes, people use this ability to make
decisions some of us don't like. So, Jason, she
is not dying because she isn't human; she is
dying because she wanted to, and because
her husband was brave enough to stand up
for her choice.
We offer the opportunity to get it.

Politicians shouldn't control right to life
Editor: History, pundits remind us, has
regarded eugenicists and euthanizers with
something less than approbation. When one
group of powerful and fanatical human beings
decides to exterminate another, less powerful
group, untold atrocities occur. Those denied
the status of human beings are deprived of
any right to make decisions in society or in
their own lives, a process culminating in the
deprivation of the ultimate right: that to life.
* Presumably, no one today questions the
sovereignty of an individual who chooses to
live. Why, then, do we question the individu-
al's right to die in peace?
Forget the tragedy of Terri Schiavo and
both sides of her family. What if it were you?
Does your family have the right to torture you
indefinitely against your expressed wishes?
Does the government have that right? .
Let me be clear: We have no culture of
life in this country. Disregard the infanticide,
demonic foreign policy and plundering of the
environmental that characterize the new mil-
lennium. Forget how far we have regressed in
matters of social justice, equable distribution
of resources and opportunities, and quality of
life. Even if you remain blind to these blatant
offenses against human potential, you can-
not ignore the obvious: We have a culture of
power in America.
Whether you call it "the power of pride"
(formerly a deadly sin) or some other pal-
atable phrase, the fact remains that a few
Americans spend a great deal of time attempt-
ing to impose their will upon others. This is as
true when we democratize a country into kitty
litter as when we deliver pretty speeches and,
subvert the constitution to brutally torment a
helpless woman and her family in the name of
There is another way. It demands faith in
ourselves, trust in our fellows and a willing-
ness to confront harsh choices. We must let
individuals be responsible for their own lives.
Allowing a handful of self-righteous to
dictate the moral conditions under which all
must live is unacceptable and serves no public
good. In the next thirty years, more than 100
million Americans will face end-of-life deci-
sions. There are not. enough resources to ex-
tend all of these lives indefinitely, nor should
we attempt to at the expense of the well-being
of the individuals themselves. Let the ones
who wish to die do so in peace and with as
little pain as possible, preferably in a swifter
fashion than dying of thirst.
. Don't let those overly perfumed, rosy-
cheeked, pudgy-faced slavering do-gooders
with unnaturally bright eyes and sharp-
toothed grins take control of your last breath.
Otherwise we might as well all be in a persis-
tent vegetative state.

Congress' actions correct judicial errors
Editor. The actions takenby the Republican
Congress regarding the Terri Schiavo case are
not about governmental interference they.
are about stopping an ongoing trend of judi-
cial tyranny. The root of the problem here is
a judiciary that is totally out of control. Judge
Greer has ruled that Schiavo should have her
feeding tube removed because that was her
wish. However, the only proof given was testi-
mony from her husband, Michael, saying that
she had mentioned to him years ago that she
would not want to be on a feeding tube, just in
case she ever had to be put on one.
How convenient for him. However, there
is no living will, and no written evidence has
been produced that proves this is what she
wanted. In. America, do we condemn people
to death on he said/she said evidence, or do
we prove beyond a reasonable doubt whether
something is true before we pass judgement?
Even murderers need an immense burden
of proof against them before they are put to
death but not Terri Schiavo. All it takes is
her husband's word and a sympathetic judge
to pass the death sentence. Her case would
have beenlaughed out of "People's Court" be-
cause of the lack of solid, irrefutable evidence. I
guess Judge Greer has a lot to learn from day-
time television. What makes the issue even
more suspicious is that Michael Schiavo never
even mentioned that his wife didn't want to
be on a feeding tube until seven years after she
initially was put on it, which coincides with
his engagement to another woman.
The Republicans got involved because,
according to Article 3 of the Constitution,
Congress has the power to regulate the judi-
ciary. They were well within their constitu-
tional right to. do what they did, and if any
case needs oversight, this is it. We are talking
about a human life here. All Congress wanted
was for a federal court to review what seems
to many people to be a shoddy case. What's
wrong with that? They weren't interfering
with anyone's personal life, but making sure
that Schiavo was getting the constitutional
protections that she is guaranteed. The point
here isn't whether or not Schiavo ever can
recover from her condition or if this is what
she really wanted. Because Terri cannot speak
for herself, and because she never wrote down.
her wishes, we will never know what she truly
wanted. But, with her parents willing to take
on all responsibilities of her care, why not do
as President Bush has stated and "err on the
side of life?"
Michael Schiavo can annul his marriage
to Terri and marry his fiance and live hap-
pily ever after with-her and their two out-
of-wedlock children, and the Schindlers can
keep taking care of their daughter. Isn't that
what seems fair? Wouldn't that be justice?

NASA offers challenge
By EMILY YEHLE
UF researchers have a chance to win
$100,000 if they enter two new NASA-
sponsored competitions to develop space
UF faculty already pulls in approximate-
ly $6 million in NASA grants, but this new
approach to research funding is the first to
include universities, said Peggy Evanich,
UF director of space research programs.
"It can't hurt if it leads to some new tech-
nology for space explorations," she said.
Although four grant-funded projects are
already underway, other research projects
may emerge when the news spreads among
UF's faculty, Evanich said.
"We'll be urging them to consider par-
ticipating," she said.
Material sciences and engineering re-
searchers may already be working on cre-.
ating the strong lightweight material men-
tioned in the guidelines for NASA's Tether

has a $50,000 prize, focuses on creating a
strong rope-like tether.

competition that offers $50,000, aims -to

UF cleans water for NASA
* ONE DAY, USED SHOWER WATER
COULD BECOME DRINKABLE.
By NAOMI PIERCE

UF students may soon be able to strip
down and soap up in the name of space
An environmental engineering proj-
ect research group at UF has teamed
with NASA to provide clean water to
astronauts on the International Space
Station by recycling used shower Water.
Since January 2004, assistant profes-
sor David Mazyck has been perfecting
technology that will use ultraviolet light
to transform used water into safe drink-
ing water for low-gravity environments.
Along with a number of graduate
students, Mazyck has helped build a
"photo cat" water recovery machine,
which he -hopes will be operating in
long-duration space flight by 2008.
The process of photo catalysis in-
volves mixing ultraviolet light with
titanium dioxide, an ingredient found
in toothpaste, which begins a chemical
The water the photo cat is testing at
UF is a mixture of strict ingredients ap-
proved by NASA.
"We have a formula that simulates
what waste-water would look -like,"
Mazyck said. ."What you would like to
have is a real situation versus some hy-
pothetical that may not be realistic."
Ideally, UF students will be able to
contribute to space research by 2006 by
providing a realistic human sample of
shower water, Mazyck said.
In order to keep the experiment con-
stant, students would not be allowed
to use their own soap, but would be
provided with a university-approved

Graduate student Beau Kostedt,
who has worked with Mazyck on the
$150,000 project, said long-term space
missions are not possible without this
type of water recovery.
NASA employees at the Johnson
Space Center in Houston often shower
at their facilities in order to donate their
water to research as well.
UF freshman Ian Knabe said he
would have no problem showering to
Knabe compared the idea to a dorm
shower and figured he could probably
talk his friends into showering as well.
"I'd go shower for the university,"
Knabe said. "It's definitely a cool idea."

As students snacked on free pizza and
drinks within the Reitz Union Colonnade,
panelists fielded questions from a College

"I think the program went really well,"
she said. "I wish more students would come
out, but if we're just reaching a few people,

Two-game Alabama split ends UF's winning streak
* TORRES HITS WALK-OFF
HOMER IN EXTRA INNINGS.
By WILLIS JACOBSON
The No. 13 UF softball
team (28-7, 7-1 Southeastern
Conference) seems to have a-flair
for the dramatic.
The Gators lost game one of
Tuesday night's doubleheader
against No. 11 Alabama (37-8,
10-4 SEC) only to come back and
win the nightcap in extra-inning-
UF fell behind 3-0 in game
two, but left the home crowd
happy when Mirelis Torres
smashed an eighth-inning, walk-
off, two-run, pinch-hit home run,
giving the Gators a 6-4 win. The
home run was only the second of
Torres' career and her first of the
"That was amazing; I'm
completely psyched right now,"
Torres said after the game. "She
pitched me a fat one a little bit
inside and I saw it, I swung, and
The home run came as no sur-
prise to her coach, who sent her
in for the pinch-hit opportunity.
"She hit that pitch really well,"
Coach Karen Johns said. "We
knew she'd come in and step up
for us. We didn't know she'd hit
a home run, but we knew she'd
put a good swing on one. She
. does not get a lot of chances and
every time she goes in, she makes
something happen. She's always
ready when we call on her."
The two-game split snapped
UF's school-record 13-game win
streak and its six-game SEC win
The teams will play the rub-
ber match today at 2 p.m at the
Florida Softball Stadium.
The Crimson Tide won the
first game 5-3, thanks in large
part to three solo home runs,
the most the Gators have given
up in a single game this season.
The five earned runs were the
second-most given up this season
. by Stacey Stevens (16-5).
Stevens surrendered the final
run on a wild pitch that was in-
tended to be the second ball of an
Stevens came out of the bull-
pen, however, to pick up the win
in game two.
"We didn't feel like we played
poorly, but we didn't capitalize a
couple of times," Johns said. "But
we came back and were consis-

Pitcher Stacey Stevens swipes at Alabama's Jordan Prayton after throwing a wild pitch during an inten-
tional walk. The resulting run capped a 5-3 Crimson Tide win in game one.
tent through that whole second
game, and our defense stayed
strong the whole way through."
.The Gators played well de-
fensively in both games, but
couldn't seem to jumpstart their
bats. Despite winning game two,
UF recorded just eight total hits.
Home runs by Lauren Rousell,,
Melissa Zick and Torres account-
ed for the team's only multi-base
Gators prepare for NCAAs, another shot at Bulldogs
While the No. 7 UF gymnastics team
may not have gotten the results it wanted
at last weekend's Southeastern Conference
Championships, the Gators still have an-
other shot at glory this seasQn.
And they will face a familiar foe.
UF is one of six schools hosting an NCAA,
Regional on April 9, and the Gators will be
welcoming No. 5 Georgia to the O'Connell
Center for the second time this season.
The Bulldogs won the SEC title Saturday,
an event where UF made too many minor
mistakes that ended up costing them sig-
"I don't think we did terribly bad, we just
didn't do our best," senior Orley Szmuch
said. "It's-not like we fell three times or
anything like that, but we weren't sharp and
we weren't clean and we had a lot of little
mistakes that added up. And you can't have
that at SECs."
The Gators held a lengthy team meeting
before practice Monday,
where Coach Rhonda
Faehn and the gymnasts
broke down what the
team felt were the reasons
why UF didn't perform up
to its standards Saturday
Dooley "Everyone really had
a chance to speak their
mind," Faehn said. "And they really felt that
instead of just focusing on going out like
we normally do and not who we're going
up against, and just focusing on hitting our
routines, it became this huge situation on
wanting to win, which obviously took their
focus off their performance."
UF will now attempt to turn mistakes at
the conference championships into success
at the regional and national competitions.
"We had the greatest intentions to go in
there and win," co-captain Erinn Dooley
said. "We struggled on a few things, but it
wasn't a terrible meet. We realized that we
only struggled on really one event, and that
happens, but we learn from our mistakes
and go on from here."
While the Gators will have to deal with
five other teams in the Southeast Regional,
the one who will garner the most attention
It will be the fourth time this season that
the two teams have squared off, this time
with a berth in the NCAA Championships
on the line.
Georgia began the season by winning the
Super Six Challenge over second-place UF,
but the Gators gained a small measure of
revenge by winning in Athens for the first
time in two decades in February in a meet
that was sloppy by their own admission.
The Bulldogs claimed the rubber match
by dominating the SEC meet last weekend.
"It's always a rivalry just because it's
Georgia," Dooley said. "But between the
people and the- friendships there's nothing
there that's a rivalry or hate.
"It's Georgia. Yes, you always want to
beat them, but we still respect the gymnasts
and respect the team."
Faehn is hoping that the presence of the
five-time national champions will allow her
team to atone for its lackluster showing at
the SEC Championships. _
"Any chance that we get to be able to turn
a potential negative into a positive, and to
come back and show everyone what we're
capable of, we enjoy that."

BASEBALL, from page 24
UF took a 16-4 beating when it last visited Tallahassee.
"Home field advantage is everything," senior Jeff
Corsaletti said. "The fans make a huge difference. You
have to have thick skin when you play there. It's got to be
in one ear and out the other."
O'Day knows all too well about the Seminoles'
"FSU's fans are different than most others of our ri-
vals," O'Day said. "In Miami, they just curse at you and
talk about your mom.
"FSU has smart fans. They know their baseball and will
yell out compliments when we do something well."
Of course, O'Day had more than just compliments for

rocket, like a 90-mile-an-hour fastball. That's the first thing
we've been working on, but it's hard with a guy that's all
touch. He's just gotta let it rip sometimes."
Leak's been a work-in-progress, but his throws are al-
Leak completed a gasp -seven-yard wobbly pass to
Chad Jackson in Saturday's scrimmage.
"He'd rather not throw it as hard and be more accu-
.rate," Mullen said. "I'd rather have him throw it harder
and be a little less accurate."
Watch Leak in practice.
.His form is still there, but his short-field throws are now
snappy, not floaty. His touch most of the time doesn't
disappear. The lame-duck dumps have.
"He's got more zip on the ball; I've noticed tTat," q'ar-
terback Gavin Dickey said.
As for primary target syndrome?
"We've got him working to be better at looking at all his
reads," Mullen said. "He'll be quicker and quicker as he
understands the offense more and more."
Mullen hasn't seen footage of Leak overlooking open
receivers, but you can bet your Bright Futures that he'll
prevent that problem from resurfacing in 2005.
"Chris is one who wants to be the best," Mullen said.
"He'- not a type to resist coaching. He wants to be great."
Only one question remains: is Leak losing his bring-the-
ball-back-to-his-neck throwing motion?
, No, because he won't have to.
"All we'll do is just to try to drop the elbow a little bit
and that will get the ball out faster," Mullen said.

* CHARLES COULD NOT PERSUADE
FOLtY TO GIVE HIM A CHANCE.
By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
Linebacker Taurean Charles has been per-
manentally kicked off the UF football team.
Athletics Director Jeremy Foley made the
decision after holding a 20-minute meeting
with Charles Tuesday morning.
"Taurean Charles is no longer a member of
our football program," said Foley in a released
statement. "We wish Taurean the best of luck
in the future."
UF's office of Student Judicial Affairs had
suspended Charles academically for the sum-
mer on March 16.
Charles, however, was pripartd to' bravx-
the suspension and return t, fItball in Lhei
fall provided that Foley would grant him rein-
