Donovan takes job with UF rival Kentucky


Matt Marriott / Alligator Staff
Billy Donovan, knowing that he was going to Kentucky, shakes Matt Walsh's hand goodbye near the
end of UF's season. The other Gators said goodbye, however some may be going with Donovan.


By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
aabramson@alligator.org

After turning the UF men's bas-
ketball program into a yearly NCAA
Tournament team, Billy Donovan
shocked the college basketball world
early Friday morning by confirming
that he will leave UF to coach rival
Kentucky beginning next season.
Rumors of Kentucky coach Tubby
Smith heading to the NBA have been
rampant for years, and with coaching
vacancies in Los Angeles, New York,
Minneapolis and in other high profile
cities, Smith decided it was the right
time to go pro.
Kentucky athletics director Mitch
Barnhart called on Donovan, a former
Kentucky assistant. Less than an hour
later it was official.
"I'll always cherish my years at
the University of Florida, but this is a
football school," said Donovan in an
exclusive phone interview with the
Alligator. "Kentucky has a chance to
win national titles each and eyery year.
It was a no-brainer."
UF athletics director Jeremy Foley,
attending a Steely Dan concert in
Atlanta, said he was stunned at the
news and left the concert after Donovan
called him around 11 p.m. to tell him he.


was likely headed to Kentucky.
"If [Donovan] wanted to leave the
Gators to coach in the NBA, I'd under-
stand," Foley said. "But to jump ship.
and head to a rival school is inexcus-
able. This is absurd and I'm shocked."

Conspiracy theories
It's been less than three weeks
.since UF stunned Kentucky for the
SEC Tournament championship. After
failing to defeat the Wildcats for four
seasons, Donovan and the Gators
scored two victories against Kentucky
in eight days.
SEC commissioner Mike Slive was
reached just after midnight. He was al-
ready looking into possible allegations
of misconduct.
"When was this really in the
works?" Slive .asked. "I knew some-
thing seemed off when the Gators
managed to defeat Kentucky twice, and
now I'm forced to really look into these
allegations. Did Barnhart and Coach
Smith allow UF to win those games in
order to boost Billy Donovan's resume?
Let's hope, for the sake of the SEC and
college basketball, these are just silly
conspiracy theories."

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

'Dry' fight a mistake


By MIKE GIMIGNANI
Alligator Staff Writer
mgimignani@alligator.org

The recent student-led crusade
against the possibility of a "dry campus"
at UF may have been the result of a mis-
communication, Student Body President-
elect Joe Goldberg said Thursday.
According to Goldberg, an e-mail
document entitled "Dry Campus?
Machen's Mission" was sent to several
Student Government figures. However,
most of the document actually was
taken from a memo written in 1982 that
warned of decreasing water levels in
Lake Alice.
An anonymous prankster allegedly
doctored the memo by replacing the
word ''Marston" (for UF's president
at the time, Robert Q. Marston) with


"Machen," and "Lake Alice" with
"The UF campus," Goldberg told the
Alligator.
"I guess I'm the goat," he said.
"Looking back, it's easy to see how fake
it was, but it looked convincing at the
time."
-Goldberg said he has already apolo-
gized to UF Vice President for Student
Affairs Patricia Telles-Irvin, who chided
the Student Senate on Tuesday for
spreading a false rumor.
Staffers at UF's Department of
Environmental Engineering Sciences,
which, drafted the original memo, con-
firmed Thursday that they could not find
the document, which led officials there
to muse that it may have been stolen.
Professor William McKeen, chair
of UF's journalism department, said,


UF to size out trucks, SUVs


By EVA KIS
Alligator Staff Writer
ekis@alligator.org

The ever-increasing problem of parking on
campus led UF Transportation and Parking
Services to announce it will begin denying
decals to drivers of larger-sized vehicles.
Interim Director Scott Fox said the restric-
tion, which will come into effect this Summer,
affects vehicles with wheelbases wider than
130 inches and longer than 220 inches.
"Vehicles of that size often take up more
than one space," Fox said. "They are also bad
for the environment and take the largest toll
on roads. It's a reasonable, feasible solution."
Fox likened the prohibition, an idea
spurred by complaints about the vehicles


overtaking spaces, to new policies imple-
mented by several major airlines.
"We sell one decal per vehicle, and when
that vehicle takes up more than its share of
a space, our already strained resources are
taxed even further," he said.
The restriction applies to
Student popular vehicles such as the
Life Hummer, Chevrolet Avalanche,
GMC Yukon XL, Lincoln Aviator
and Ford Excursion as well as all Cadillac
models built before 1974.
One such driver affected is Student Body
President-elect Joe Goldberg, who now has to
find an off-campus solution for his ride.
"I just don't know where Andre (Samuels,
Impact Party adviser) will park my limousine
now," Goldberg lamented.

STUDENT LIFE


SG to'buddy up' .


By BRIDGET CAREY
Alligator Staff Writer
bcarey@sg.ufl.edu

Student Body President-elect Joe
Goldberg commended his former
opponent Dennis Ngin for coming up
with a blockbuster plan to engender
diversity at UF.
Goldberg said he plans to valiantly
conquer the question of multicultural-
ism posed by his critics once he takes
the reins next month, involving the
deployment of a "minority buddy
program" in his continuing effort to
improve diversity education.
Goldberg said he has the full back-
ing of UF President Bernie Machen in
supporting legislation encouraging
white students to traverse campus
in the company of at least one mi-
nority, to be managed through the
Multicultural Affairs Cabinet.
Machen could not be reached for
comment Thursday.
Enforcing the new rules will be
the Student Government-funded
Student Nighttime Auxiliary Patrol,
also known as SNAP, which will soon
will replace its fleet of run-down vans
with efficient go-karts.
The SNAP program, which is run
by University Police, usually gives
students the opportunity to request
a ride on campus between 6:30 p.m.
and 2 a.m. any day of the week.
The multicultural move was a


campaign issue for Ngin during this
year's presidential elections and,
although he didn't win, Ngin said
he was glad to be able to finalize an
eternal legacy.
"With these new plans we can help
keep more students safe and have fun
at the same time," he said.
By selling the three 15--passenger
SNAP vans, SG is now able to fund 55
two-seat SNAP go-karts for the same
price, making the buddy system that
much more efficient.

"It's more than a sea of
smiling faces I want to
see out there, it's a'sea of
smiling colors, too."
Joe Goldberg
Student Body president-elect

The best part of all, Ngin added, is
that the new program is flawless.
"We will have more than 50 karts
chauffeuring students of different eth-
nicities throughout campus. I don't
know why we didn't think of this
sooner," he said.
Goldberg said Ngin's idea was to
be both a hallmark and an inspiration
during his upcoming term.
"I really feel that this will make us
a Top 10 university," Goldberg said.
"It's more than a sea of smiling faces I
want to see out there, it's a sea of smil-
ing colors, too."


Commission: no party wrongdoing in SG elections


* PRESIDENT-ELECT GOLDBERG AP-
POINTED AND LED THE GROUP.

By NICK WEIDENMILLER
Alligator Staff Writer
nweidenmiller@sg.ufl.edu

A blue-ribbon commission has found
no evidence of wrongdoing in the recent
Student Government elections, high-ranking
SG officials told the Alligator on Thursday.
Appointed and led by Student Body
President-elect Joe Goldberg, the group
met in a secret, closed session for several
hours this weekend before concluding that


Editor's Note:
The Alligator embarks on its
journey to a brave new world
today, as we welcome back
membership in Student
Government and our old
motto, "For a Better Florida."
See page 3 for more infor-
mation on this momentous
change in our history.


allegations made by members of several
parties involved in the elections were with-
out basis.
"We looked at the facts, and there's noth-
ing there. How anyone could insinuate this
nonsense is totally beyond me," Goldberg
said.
Goldberg added that he didn't see an is-
sue with serving on the same committee that
mostly probed complaints against his party.
"Presidents don't have time to have con-
flicts of interest," he said.
Other SG officials agree, maintaining the
false light shed on Goldberg and The Gator
Party was by far the most pressing issue.


SG-funded Skittles to rain onto Reitz Union Colonnade on Friday
Thanks to the generosity of Student Body President-elect Joe Goldberg, a
real-life torrent of Skittles candies will fall on the Reitz Union at noon today.
Student Government will pay local skydiving outfit AirDrop, Inc.,
$20,000 to rain 160 tons of the fruit-flavored sweets on the campus during
Friday classes.
"This isn't like chocolate alligators or anything," Goldberg said. "But I
want to give people a chance to taste the rainbow."
Calls to the Pride Student Union were not returned.
John Caldewell, AirDrop's president, said "technical questions" still ex-
ist with getting the candies to the ground in one piece.
"They might move pretty fast," he said.


"[The investigation] was a witch hunt.
We are so not like that at all," Student Body
Treasurer-elect Lindsay Cosimi said in a
Thursday interview. "It's a credit to men
like Joe [Goldberg] that they can put up
with these accusations
Student and still have a smile on
Gover nment their face."
The commission de-
cided to publicly chastise former Impact
Party adviser Lowell Wong, whose com-
plaint with University Police led to a wide-
spread investigation of all the 11 parties
registered this Spring.
Wong could not be reached for comment


Voice Party chairman
Christian Duque was sus-
pended today by Student
Government authorities for
refusing to concede last
month's elections. Duque
has vowed to sit in vigil
at the SG offices until his
grievances are heard.

Thursday.
Also, the nine-member board narrowly
defeated a measure to recommend a $5,000
fine against Impact Party presidential can-
didate Dennis Ngin and a $1 fine for vice-
presidential candidate Robert Mack.
Student Senate President Diane Kassim,
the subject of an earlier allegation over her
recent appointment to that position, com-
mended the group Friday for putting a
touch of finality on a controversial issue.
"I can only hope that now the individu-
als who propagate this hatred will receive
their proper punishment," she wrote in an
e-mail.

Mack 'fights for his rights' in
Tallahassee wrestling match
Former Student Body Vice-
Presidential candidate Robert
Mack got his "agenda" taken
care of earlier this week, beat-
ing Florida Rep. Dennis Baxley
for first place in the Florida
Legislature's first annual "Rule
'n' Rassle Invitational" wrestling
competition.
Mack, the only under-25
man invited to the 32-member
elimination tournament, powered
through his opponents without
much resistance. Only Baxley, the
chairman of the House Education
Committee, gave Mack a run for
his money, Mack said.
"Dennis [Baxley]'s got some
fire in him," Mack said. "Every
time I'd move in for the kill,
he'd find a way to slip from my
hands."
Mack won bragging rights
from his competitors mostly
representatives and a $50 gift
certificate to Sonny's Real Pit
BBQ.
But Baxley couldn't resist
talking trash of the Student
Government lobby coordinator.
"This is just the first match. I'll
be back, and then we'll do things
Ocala style," Baxley said.

Asked why the event wasn't

after the event.
"Fifty-nine dollars, that's like

maybe we will just go to Italy

Gomberg said.

SG presidents discuss bill with Governor


By NEIL HUGHES
Alligator Writer
nhughes@alligator.org

The current and future Student
Body president met with Gov. Jeb
Bush on Thursday to talk about is-
sues facing UF students.
Student Body President Jamal
Sowell and President-elect Joe
Goldberg spoke, with Bush in his
Tallahassee office for 30 minutes.


Although Sowell endorsed
Goldberg's competitor, Student
Body Treasurer Dennis Ngin, in the
SG elections, Sowell and Goldberg
said they agreed on the issues pre-
sented to Bush.
"It's not about me, and it's not
about Joe," Sowell said. "It's about
the student body. And now the gov-
ernor knows who to talk to."
One of the main issues discussed,
Goldberg said, was the "excess


credit hour proposal" that is cur-
rently under con-
sideration in the
Florida Senate.
The proposal
-5", would charge
S students more
money for cred-
its if they take
Sowell 15 percent more
than the tradi-
tional 120 required to graduate in


most degree programs, Goldberg
said.
"You'd be charged almost double
the price it would normally cost
[for those credits]," he said. "It's
their goal to try to get students out
faster."
"We're proposing to fix the
language in the bill," Goldberg
added. "We want to change it to 20
percent."
Goldberg said he is working with


UF's own lobbyists in Tallahassee
and said he is optimistic that prog-
ress will be made.
"I think the issues can be worked
out," he said. "That's why we have
two incredible lobbyists that I'll be
looking to re-hire. I think they've
been extremely effective for us."
Sowell said he is not overly con-
cerned with the excess credit hour

UF must define degrees


* THE FLORIDA BOARD OF GOVERNORS
REQUIRED THE EXPLANATIONS.

By STEPHANIE GARRY
Alligator Staff Writer
smgarry@alligator.org

UF students who don't yet understand
the purpose of their major may get a clue
from the school this December.
That's the deadline for UF administrators
to define what knowledge and skills stu-
dents in more than 100 majors should have
by graduation and how that achievement
can be measured.
"This is a large administrative and faculty
task that needs to be done," Interim Provost
Joe Glover told the Board of Trustees, the
university's highest governing body, last
week.
The idea, mandated by the State
University System's highest authority, is
that students will have a university's prom-
ise-to learn content and critical thinking and
communication skills if they successfully
complete a certain degree.
But UF officials, faculty and students have
feared the Academic Learning Compacts
will translate into another test for graduat-
ing seniors.
"The hope is that the academic learning
compacts will foster program improvement
so that as we evaluate how students perform
on Academic Learning Compacts it will pro-
vide us feedback," Glover said.
Though UF still doesn't know if testing
will be required, it's taking a proactive ap-
proach toward the assignment in hopes that
it won't turn into a bureaucratic mess, said
Jack Mecholsky, chairman of the Faculty
Senate council who is working on the man-
date with the provost's office.
"I don't encourage individual assess-


ment," he said, adding that graduating from
a good program should be proof enough of
their learning achievement. "The way we do
it now is based on the program."
After the university sets the learning out-
comes and measures, it will go to the Board
of Trustees for approval in December and
then to the Board of Governors, the author-
ity over the State University System.
As one measure of accountability, the
compacts may be tied to UF's legislative
funding, though that relationship is still un-
clear, Glover said.
"This is a large administrative and
faculty task that needs to be done."
Joe Glover
interim provost

UF already has a variety of measures
in place to ensure the quality of their pro-
grams, including accreditation processes
that are more stringent than the compacts,
Mecholsky said.
With tracking, required courses and cur-
riculums for each major, the university is
hoping these standards will show account-
ability is inherent in the process and preempt
any need for testing or additional measures,
Mecholsky said. Otherwise, the compacts
may be a duplication, he said.
Pierre Ramond, chairman of the Faculty
Senate, wrote in a statement that the faculty
is the keeper of academic programs, stan-
dards and -quality and that the Board-man-
dated compacts should not infringe-on that
right. He agreed that many accountability
measures are already in place.
"Students are being over-tested as it is,"
Ramond said. "The proof of our success re-
ally is that people still want to come to the
University of Florida."

UF ADMINISTRATION

Grant could help recruit minority grad students


By EMILY YEHLE
Alligator Writer
eyehle@alligator.org

UF officials are hoping a $6.9 million grant
will help increase the diversity of graduate
students, strengthening UF's position among
top research universities.
The National Science Foundation awarded
UF with money to expand an existing univer-
sity coalition that aims to encourage minority
undergraduates to enter graduate programs in
science, engineering and mathematics.
UF, Clemson University and the University
of South Carolina will lead the Southeast
Alliances for Graduate Education and the
Professoriate because of the variety of their


Ph.D programs, while more than 20 universi-
ties in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina will
provide students for those Ph.D programs.
The first step is hosting visits to campus,
said Anne Donnelly, the program's director.
"We have existing graduate students meet
with and serve as local hosts so they have a
chance to talk to students," she said. "They are
very powerful role models."
Workshops, fellowships and international
research opportunities follow for students
who attend UF and join the program.
The expansion will allow UF to find minor-
ity students relatively close, Donnelly said.
"It makes more sense to recruit students
in the region than to go across the country,"
she said.


Furthermore, the coalition includes a
partnership with the University of the Virgin
Islands and a group that provides research
opportunities in 30 Latin
American countries, she
said.
The grant comes in
the wake of UF President
Bernie Machen's goal to
become a Top 10 public
research university.
Machen But the universities UF
emulates are more diverse.
"Machen has said he wants [UF] to be a
world class institution," she said. "You can't
be a world class institution if you don't repre-
sent the world, and diversity is part of that."


The program's ultimate goal is to increase
faculty diversity by recruiting and supporting
minority students who have academic aspi-
rations, Donnelly said. UF also contributes
money for additional post-doctoral positions
for minorities, she said.
Between Fall 1999 and 2004, UF partici-
pated in a smaller program with FAMU and
worked with the Florida-Georgia Louis Stokes
Alliance for Minority Participation to bring
more minority students to UF.
During those five years, minority enroll-
ment in hard sciences, engineering and biolog-
ical sciences increased 44 percent, 51 percent
and 58 percent, respectively. In that same time,
engineering Ph.D recipients almost tripled, ac-
cording to a report on the program.


Judge sentences Hudson to 30 years in murder case


* HUDSON'S CONVICTION
CAME ON HIS THIRD TRIAL.

By MEGAN V. WINSLOW
Alligator Writer
mwinslow@alligator.org

A county judge sentenced Willie
James Hudson to 30 years in prison
Thursday, in connection with the
July 2003 shooting deaths of two
Gainesville men.
On March 18, after 14 hours of
deliberation over two days, a jury
found Hudson, 30, guilty of two
counts of manslaughter.
Wearing shackles and an orange


jumpsuit, Hudson faced both Judge
Mary Day Coker's decision regard-,
ing a third charge possession of a
firearm by a convicted felon and
ultimately, his sentence for all three
charges at Thursday's hearing.
As state law prohibits a jury from
having knowledge of a defendant's
previous criminal history, Coker
was responsible for determining a
verdict on the firearm charge.
After considering the circum-
stances surrounding the weapon,
Coker found Hudson guilty and
sentenced him to 15 years for each of
the three crimes.
Two of those sentences one for
manslaughter, the other for the fire-


arm will be served concurrently.
Prior to Coker's decision, fam-
ily members of both victims made
statements, expressing a desire for a
harsh sentence.
"This cannot be repaired -Kevin
cannot be replaced," said Eyvette
Harris, sister of victim Kevin Harris.
"My children are without an uncle.
My nephew is without a father...
not a Paxil, not a Zoloft can help with
what I'm going through."
However, after two mistrials, the
punishments brought a sense of clo-
sure to both sides of the bench.
"In light of all the circumstances,
the state is satisfied that at least
some degree of justice was done,


and it respects both the verdict of the
jury and the sentence of the court,"
prosecutor Geoffrey Fleck said.
On July 2, 2003, Harris, 29,
climbed into Hudson's car alleg-
:4 edly intending to
buy cocaine from
Local John .Adkins, 28.
CourtS According to pros-.
ecutors, Hudson
was waiting in the
backseat of the car, planning to rob
Harris of approximately $8,000.
When Harris fought back, Hudson
shot him three times. Adkins, the
driver, was killed when he was
struck in the head by a stray bullet.
Soon after, the car crashed into the


front porch of City Commissioner
Craig Lowe's home.
Through all three trials, defense
attorney Stephen Bernstein main-
tained Hudson was in Orlando with
his wife at the time of the shootings.
Following the'verdict, Bernstein
said he believed the decision was a
"compromise" and called some evi-
dence circumstantial and confusing.
"I think this sentence has all the
problems it does because of the
jury's compromise, and nobody
knows what to do with the case,"
Bernstein said. "If you treat it as
murder, you're wrong because the
jury said it wasn't murder, and no
one asked for manslaughter."

Muslims talk news


By JOHN COX
Alligator Contributing Writer

"Kill their leaders and con-
vert them to Christianity."
If the "their" in columnist
Ann Coulter's statement re-
ferred to Jews and not Muslims,
would it run in a newspaper?
Ahmed Bedier said he
doesn't think so.
"Islam and Muslims are in
the headlines every day and
mostly in a negative light," said
Bedier, Central Florida director
for the Council on American-
Islamic Relations.
Americans are often con-
fused about Islam, and the me-
dia doesn't help, Bedier said.
Bedier spoke to nine people
in the Florida Gym Thursday
night about how journalists
should cover Islam. UF's Islam
on Campus sponsored the
event.
Bedier said the media has
created dangerous stereotypes
about Muslims since Sept. 11,
2001.


"Those stereotypes eventually
develop into hatred," he said.
A 2004 CAIR report showed
a 70 percent increase in anti-
Muslim incidents, Bedier said.
UF psychology sophomore
Hassan Loutfi said he thought
Bedier was right about how me-
dia outlets cover Islam.
"A lot of the audience is not
Muslim, and they know that,"
said Loutfi, who is Muslim.
Bedier said
On journalists should
S"'- ''-do more to cover
Muslim holidays
and local events.
A lack of Muslim influence in
the media also has affected pub-
lic perception, he said. CAIR
encourages Muslims in univer-
sities to go into journalism.
"It's important to just not
have a bunch of white people on
staff," Bedier said.
Bedier also said Muslims of-
ten do not trust the media.
"Many people just think
all the media is controlled by
Jews," he said.

Commissioner makes homeless crusade into summit


By BRIAN HAGEN
Alligator Writer
bhagen@alligator.org

Alachua County Commissioner Rodney
Long turned his two days' experience liv-
ing as a homeless person in northeast
Gainesville last week into a commission to
resolve the problem in 10 years Thursday.
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan, Long and
other community leaders and luminaries
met for The Homelessness Summit, held at
the Martin Luther King Jr. Activity Center.
The forum brought together politicians,
business and property owners and com-
munity activists who will focus on pro-
viding more services, sustainable housing
and mental and substance-abuse care, as
well as improving law enforcement, jail


and institutional care.
"This is a real problem, and it's not go-
ing away," Long said. "It's up to us. What
are you going to do to help?"
Featured speakers included leaders
from Jacksonville and Tallahassee who
shared their own cities' difficulties in
fighting homelessness.
Tallahassee Mayor John Marks em-
phasized the need to provide affordable
housing.
Doing nothing can cost more than fight-
ing the problem, said Wanda Lanier, ex-
ecutive director of the Emergency Services
and Homeless Coalition of Jacksonville
Inc.
To calculate the cost, the coalition
tracked the service needs of individual


"We could have built John a house
for what we spent on him in a
year."
Wanda Lanier
executive director of the Emergency Ser-
vices and Homeless Coalition of Jackson-
ville Inc.

homeless people, such as John, a bipolar
homeless man. In seven months, John's
trips to the emergency room, detoxifica-
tion programs and lodging at shelters cost
Jacksonville $40,000.
"We could have built John a house for
what we spent on him in a year," she said.
When guests were slow to join the-commit-
tee, Long approached them with a grin and a


booming voice, volunteering them himself.
Hanrahan received a sizeable check
for $946,379 from the U.S. Department of
Housing and Urban Development to help
the city in its efforts.
Also among summit attendees were
city commissioners Rick Bryant and
Craig Lowe, Alachua County Sheriff
Steve Oelrich and homeless people Long
befriended while living on the streets of
Gainesville last week.
Attendees also offered insight into op-
tions to make the program effective. "We
need to incorporate the people who've
been through these programs," said
Hawthorne Mayor John Martin. "There is
a connection between someone who's been
down the same road you've been down." -

Editorial
We're going to try something new today: an all-Laurel edi-
tion of Darts & Laurels.
While we've earned a reputation this semester for being
particularly negative and deservedly so we're not really
all as cynical as some think. We enjoy a walk on the beach, a
particularly vibrant sunset and the sound of a baby's laugh as
much as any boring poet. That's why we're so happy that a lot
of heartwarming stuff has been happening lately.
We're usually relegated to taking out the trash, as it were, but
today we are only going to discuss things that truly exemplify
everything that is right in the world today.
Heck, maybe we'll even like it. This could be the start of a
new, infinitely more rosy future. -1
So, braid some flowers into your hair, give the person next
to you a big hug and then realize how naive you are for actually
believing anything we just said on April Fools' Day as we laugh
merrily at you into this week's Laurel-free edition of...



Darts & Laurels

We kick things off by bestowing our coveted dumbest-
phrase-ever-uttered-and-then-printed-in-our-pages-this-year
DART to Rep. Dennis Baxley-for saying that he opposes any
form of benefits for partners of gay or lesbian couples because
he believes that homosexuals are too promiscuous.
While his ludicrously discriminatory statements on this
issue are too numerous to list, a particular" favorite of the
Department of Darts & Laurels was, "Some of these people
have 300 partners in their lifetime and, by and large, these are
not monogamous relationships."
We'd love to see the research that led him to that statistic.
Baxley: "How many guys have you, uh, you know, 'done?"'
Happily monogamous gay man: "Actually, I'm still with my
high-school sweetheart."
Baxley to himself: "So, he says 'one.' But once I invoke the
Multiply-by-300 Rule of homosexual promiscuity..."
Yeah, we know that's not fair. He never would have gone out
and actually talked to "a gay" himself.
Because we know that "when it April showers, it pours," we
toss a bring-back-the-ballots-we've-got-a-new-contehder-for-
dumbest-quote-ever-printed DART to Scott Fox, interim direc-
tor of UF's Transportation and Parking Services, for insisting
-despite the staggering mountain of evidence to the contrary
- that ,"We know there is enough red parking."
This statement was in flagrant denial of the fact that 1,653
Red 1 decals were sold for only 800 parking spaces and 3,558
Red 3 decals we sold for 3,101 All Red or All Decal spaces.
By what twisted form of logic is this "enough red park-
ing?" When students are turned away from parking lots daily
because there are no available spots -- because there are many
more decals sold than there are spaces how can you even
begin to argue that there are "enough?"
But give him the benefit of the doubt: Maybe he was just re-
ally confused from all of the asphalt fumes, and so. he decided
to celebrate April Fools' Day a bit early.
Finally, because we're always looking out for evidence that
the government decided "1984" had some pretty good ideas,
we give a don't-you-guys-know-that-it's-a-really-bad-idea-to-
try-to-separate-a-fat-kid-and-his-cake DART to Oregon's state
legislature for considering legislation that would ban candy,
soda and other junk food from being sold in public schools.
Don't these legislators remember back when they were a
child? Where would we all be today if we hadn't had "snack
time" during our most impressionable years? It's not the same
if the "snacks" are green vegetables, rice cakes and V8.
In other news, the Oregon legislators also have proposed a
blanket ban on all pencils in a last-ditch effort to stem the tide of
lead-poisoning deaths caused when school children get desper-
ate after they run out of paste to eat.
Just kidding. We may be willing to go pretty far on April
Fools' Day, but the reality of our kids sucking back No.2's like
coke is no laughing matter.
Now we can't even tell when we're kidding anymore.

Don't like comics? You will after this


Hot damn, I'm excited. I've been talking about it
all week. To tell you the truth, I haven't shut the
hell up once. "Sin City" is out-today, and I could
not be happier. I'm probably in cinematic ecstasy right
now as you're reading this sentence, and I feel confident
saying that because I plan to see the movie eight or nine,
times this weekend.
For those of you who don't know, "Sin City" is perhaps
the most ambitious, innovative and talent laden-film re-
leased this year. Without even seeing it, I'm declaring it
one of the best. That's because "Sin City" is comics done
right. All of us have seen "Daredevil," or "Catwoman,"
or "Elektra," and one of the reasons those movies sucked
is because they deviated so much from the source mate-
rial. Not-this time.
Frank Miller, the writer, illustrator and creator of the
"Sin City" comics not only wrote the screenplay, but he
has been brought on as a director as well. Let me put this
in perspective. If there were a Holy Trinity of modem
comic. book writers, that Big Three would include Alan
Moore, Neil Gaiman and Frank Miller. Miller's work on
Batman ("Batman: Year One," "Batman: The Dark Knight
Returns") is what turned him into the gritty- character
you think of today (rather than the campy Adam West
version), and Miller took that edge to another level en-
tirely when he created "Sin.City." "Sin City" is a dark,
'violent place, and Miller highlighted this by almost ex-
clusively using black and white in the books.
Robert Rodriguez, the film's co-director, convinced
Miller to sign on to the project so he could recreate
Miller's style on film. If you've seen the black-and-white"
commercials they've been airing recently, you know
what I'm talking about. If not, try to understand that
this movie looks radically different than anything you've
seen before. Miller's artistry is so unique and so astonish-
ing that, if the movie looks half as good as the printed


version, this will be an incredible
Sfilmn.
That's why "Sin City" has
drawn more top-level talent than
any movie I can ever remember.
One of the greatest comic book
Andrew Meyer stories ever (and now one of my
Uncommon Sense favorites) is being brought to the
letters@alligator.org silver screen, and Bruce Willis,
Jessica Alba, Clive Owen, Benicio
Del Toro, Michael Clark Duncan,
Elijah Wood, Rosario Dawson, Michael Madsen, Josh
Hartnett, Mickey Rourke (an inspired casting choice as
the film's antihero Marv), Jaime King, Brittany Murphy,
Nick Stahl and Devon Aoki all wanted in on it. Oh, and
-I forgot to mention -that Quentin Tarantino guest directs
for part of the film. Can you see why I'm excited?
When I saw that staggering orgy of talent signed up
for this -film, it was all I could do to stop myself from
hyperventilating. I had read Miller's work on Batman,
but didn't get around to "Sin City" until last week (yes,
that was me sitting in the bookstore for days on end). I
can't stress enough how amazing these books are. The
struggles of the twisted antiheroes of "Sin City" are
fleshed out so realistically that it's like nothing you've
ever read before..
Comic books are without question the most unherald-
ed medium in literature, long and unfairly regarded by
many as mere "kid's stuff." Even today, there is a stigma
,associated with reading comics, despite the high quality
many of them possess. So when I say that "Sin City" is
easily one of the five greatest comic books ever, it might
not mean much to you. After seeing this movie, believe
me, it %\ ill

Letters to the Editor
Some people are too quick to cry 'racist'
Editor. Somehow, Dan Raben came to the
conclusion that Andy Marlette's cartoon on.
Johnnie Cochran was racist. I think it's pathet-
ic that, every time a black person is attacked,
there are people who assume there are racist
motives at play. I'm sure the vast majority of
those who read his letter replied, "Huh?"
I also would like to see Raben's evidence
that a large number of UF students are racists.
The racism charge just sounds like a bunch of
poppycock from a whining lunatic. Raben, I
suggest you make a better effort to get the wad
out of your panties and go have a drink.

Legislator's attempts would stop growth
Editor: Representative Dennis Baxley has
been more than wrong these past few weeks:
He's been irresponsible. In a state in which the
educational system has been under scrutiny as
lazy, static and unproductive, he is taking very
drastic measures to ensure that the slow mo-
mentum UF and other colleges are building
in the direction of growth is halted. Professors
across the state are feeling more unwelcome
by the appropriately misnamed Academic
Freedom Bill, which hopes to ensure that


progress in literature, art, political and social
theory and the sciences will be stifled by fears
that students who believe the Sun does not re-
volve around the Earth or that the Holocaust
never happened can sue for the right to have
their ideas go unchallenged by real experts.
Threatening a school that is trying to allow
domestic partner benefits ensures that a sizable
demographic of capable and much-needed
instructors will take their abilities elsewhere.
Perhaps, when all of the professors at UF have
left, he can be the one to come and teach us
about the future with his 30-year-outdated
bachelor's degrees from FSU and his academic
experience as a Rotary Club president.

Palestinian rapper furthers same themes
Editor: Will Youmans, a Palestinian-
American rapper, said he was not on cam-
pus "to convert anyone over to my side or
view," and added "violence against civilians
is wrong" (from Thursday's Alligator). He
then led the audience in singing a song with
a chorus that went, "They exiled us and stole
our homes, now all we have are old keys and
new poems. They turned us into refugees and
uprooted us like our olive trees."
Yeah, yeah. This is the sort of message that


leads Palestinian youths to kill Israeli civilians
--hundreds of whom have been murdered
in suicide bombings during the Intifada as a
result of similar themes in Arab society.
In 1947-49, 2,000 Jewish civilians (not
soldiers) were killed because the Palestinians
and five surrounding Arab countries rejected
the U.N. resolution establishing a Jewish
state and an Arab state in Palestine. Between
1949 and 1955, 700,000 Jews who had lived
in those same Arab countries for centuries
were hounded out of their homes and found
refuge in Israel. Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan
and Egypt are now "judenrein," (free of Jews)
in one of the most absolute instances of apart-
heid in the 20th century, while 20 percent of
the Jewish state is composed of Arab Israelis.
That is my side or view.

Dean Emeritus, College of Journalism and
Communications



Editorial is misleading, wrongly personal
Editor: I feel it is necessary to clarify your
concerns regarding The Gainesville Sun's re-
lationship with UF to reassure students their
money and time is being taken into account.
Firsf, UF and the Sun are in talks. There has
not been any official commitment made by ei-
ther side to pursue this program. The $16,000'


FRIDAY, APRIL 1, 2005 E ALLIGATOR, 7


is an estimation. This program is one of many
ideas being considered to broaden the outlets
for news on campus and allow journalism stu-
dents to access more outlets for publishing.
Second, I never made my involvement-
personal. I am friends with many of your em-
ployees. Emily Yehle, the author of Tuesday's
article, was told she could call me day or night
to address any issues or concerns. I gave her
every shred of information I had concerning
the program and even took extra steps to be
clear on the program's potential details.
Furthermore, I take full responsibility for
the mistake I made last semester. I never have
denied the situation; however, it was, in fact,
a mistake. I know you are familiar with such
mistakes. Just this week, you cut off the end
of an article and misspelled two headlines.
Surely, the students are not calling for your
head. The fact is, I was and am sorry for what
happened, but I maintain that I learned from
the experience and am ready to move on.
I am hurt that you stooped to the personal
level to scare off students who wish to make
this university better. You have a responsibility
to expose the truth, but you have shown this
semester that exploiting peoples' weaknesses
is more entertaining than real, hard news.
I hope this is not a regular occurrence. We
all make mistakes, but publishing them when
details are not necessary is unprofessional.

Students reflect on beauty


"Copyrighted Material
Syndicated Content
Available from Commercial News Providers"


By KYLIE CRAIG
Alligator Writer
kcraig@alligator.org
UF students described beauty in their
own words at Thursday's "Beyond Body
Acceptance: Redefining Beauty and Your
Relationship with Food" event.
The Panhellenic Council and the Student
Health Care Center hosted the event. It aimed
to challenge students' current ideas about
beauty and body image and educate them on
intuitive eating and eating disorders, accord-
ing to a release.
Amy Kennedy, Panhellenic director of
women's wellness, said she wanted the event
to help women realize the importance of ad-
dressing issues with body image.
"We feel that by facing this subject, more
women will seek resources to confront this is-
sue and will feel better about themselves over
time," she said.
Students attending the event were given
fliers on healthy eating, eating disorder fact
sheets, SHCC cookbooks and the opportunity
to receive a free massage from the SHCC be-


tween classes.
They were also able to write down their
own definitions of beauty to be put on a
poster.
It's important for people to have a healthy
view of what beauty is, in part because of the
pressure the media puts on people, Kennedy
said.
"On TV and in movies you'll see how
we're supposed to look and supposed to act,
and the typical woman in college
r ek isn't like that," she said.
UF senior Amber Whatley,
27, said she stopped by the tent
event because she thinks body image is a
problem for the entire society, not just col-
lege students.
"Image is far too highly stressed," Whatley
said. "I think women are made to feel they
have to have a totally unrealistic image."
Nutritionists and counselors were also on
site to answer questions about body accep-
tance and eating disorders.
"As college women, we should realize
.we're all different and that's the best part
about it," Kennedy said.

TALLAHASSEE

House debates use of deadly force


By JAMES VANLANDINGHAM
Alligator Staff Writer
jvanl@alligator.org

TALLAHASSEE A bill that grants.
Floridians who shoot intruders in their
homes immunity from criminal or civil liabil-
ity moved forward in the Florida House on
Thursday, after an hour of debate that at times
seemed downright raucous.
House Bill 249, a version similar to another
bill that passed the Florida Senate unanimous-
ly March 23, says that even in public places,
Floridians would not have a duty to retreat
before using deadly force against assailants.
That would depart drastically from cur-
rent state law, which requires that if a persons
are attacked outside their home or office and
fears for their life, they must first attempt to
flee if possible.
Willie Meggs, a state attorney in Tallahassee
and head of the Florida Prosecuting Attorneys
Association, said the new law is unnecessary
and potentially dangerous.
"I think we're trying to solve a problem
that doesn't exist, and in doing so may create
a problem that we don't need," Meggs said,
adding that many future murder defendants
could easily claim they acted in self-defense.
"Those are definite concerns," he said. "I'm
aware of situations where there have been al-
tercations where deadly force was used ahd the
person did not retreat. ... While the common-
law doctrine that a man's home is his castle has
long dictated that people don't have to retreat
from their own homes, the new bill extends the
idea to public parks and city streets.
"If that's what the law says, I don't think
that's real good," Meggs said.
The "deadly force" bill was sponsored in


the House by Rep. Dennis Baxley, R-Ocala,
who chairs the House Education Council.
"I'm the strongest advocate for freedom
in this House," Baxley said during the debate.
"I don't carry a gun, but I want criminals to
know that behind every door they break into
may be a citizen with a firearm."
Rep. Dan Gelber, D-Miami Beach, spon-
sored an amendment that would have al-
lowed state attorneys to prosecute in such
situations if they believed the killing was
premeditated murder.
"If we pass this law, killers who could

be prosecuted. Do you un-
derstand that?" he nearly
shouted during debate on
the legislation.
"People would be au-
thorized to kill or murder
under this bill."
Gelber House Republicans
shouted down Gelber's
amendment in a voice vote.
Also in debate, House Democrats took aim
at Baxley and his bill.
Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Dania Beach, asked
whether he could shoot someone at a bar if he
was drinking and another man came at him.
"Maybe," Baxley said. "If someone moves
at you, you don't have very long to decide
whether to meet the threat with deadly force,
or whether you'll turn and run and be shot in
the back."
"So you're saying if someone jumps at you
and you think that person might hurt you,
you can shoot them dead without them even
touching you, and couldn't be prosecuted for
that? Nice," Ryan responded.
Rep. Susan Bucher, D-West Palm Beach,


asked whether Baxley could shoot another
House member in a committee meeting if
they were arguing and the other member
stepped toward him in anger.
"If you have reasonable fear of death or
great bodily harm, you have a right to defend
yourself," Baxley replied. "But I didn't think
you could bring a firearm into the Capitol
building anyway."
Rep. Ken Gottlieb, D-Miramar, asked if he
could be held liable if he was outside, thought
another person was coming at him, shot,
missed, and killed a child bystander.
"Sometimes accidents may occur," Baxley
said. "But think of how many people would
have been hurt if you didn't act."
Rep. Ari Porth, D-Coral Springs, pressed
home.
"The purpose of this bill is to ensure that
you can meet force with force," Baxley said,
answering one of Porth's questions.
"What if you're in the grocery line in the
express lane and you have way more than 15
items: The person behind you gets mad and
pushes you out of the way. Can you pop a
cap in them, calmly purchase your groceries
and then call for a cleanup at checkout three?"
Porth then asked.
"If you're pushed, you can -push back,"
Baxley said.
Rep. Arthenia Joyner, D-Tampa, spon-
sored one last amendment that still would
have required Floridians to walk away from
conflicts before they started shooting. "For the
past month, we've heard a lot about how this
chamber is supposed to embrace a culture of
life," she said, insinuating hypocrisy behind
political outcry over the Terri Schiavo case.
Joyner's amendment failed 85 to 30. The bill
is expected to pass the full House next week.


Credit hour

bill discussed

SOWELL, from page 3

bill, nor the bill that would allow
students to sue their teachers for
a partisan bias, noting Gov. Bush
said that he believed neither bill
would pass in their current form.
Goldberg and Sowell were able
to ask the governor about seven
to eight questions in. the meeting,
Sowell said.
"I brought a question box in the
[UF Student] Senate," he said. "I
had all the senators put questions
in the box on Tuesday, so I got a
wide range of questions."
Sowell said he felt he had a
good relationship with the gover-
nor, and it was best for the student
body to allow that same relation-
ship for his successor.
"I could call up Jeb if I needed
any issues addressed," Sowell
said.
Goldberg said he appreciated
the invitation from Sowell and
the opportunity to speak with the
governor.
"Jamal and I were on the same
page on everything that was dis-
cussed," Goldberg said, adding
that he felt it was "very profes-
sional" of Sowell to invite him.

"We have good match-ups
against these guys; we just need
to put four matches together, and
we definitely can," junior Jordan
Dolberg said. "The confidence is
back. I can see it in the team, and it is

ented, he is confident in Hamid
Mirzadeh and Greg Ouellette on
court one, along with UF's other
two doubles teams. Jackson added

UF knows slacking off won't help defeat Kentucky


:;-M 4.-*...4..











Tim Casey / Alligator
Jeff Corsaletti and the Gators look to make it four in a row
when they host Kentucky this weekend.


By TIM CASEY
Alligator Writer
tcasey@alligator.org

Fresh off of a convincing victory
over in-state rival Florida State, the UF
baseball team won't have any time to
savor its success.
The players went right back to
work Thursday as if they hadn't
played the night before.
Freshman Jared Kubin persevered
through practice, then lingered for
more batting practice after his team-
mates left. Fellow freshman Brian
Augenstein tossed a bullpen session
with Coach Pat McMahon.
It should be safe to say that
the Gators-(20-7, 3-3 Southeastern
Conference) aren't about to suffer a
post-rival letdown, when Kentucky
(14-9, 0-5 SEC) visits this weekend.
"I think you'll see an offen-
sive mirror in a lot of neat ways,"
McMahon said. "The challenges f6r
the weekend for us are obviously
how well we accept the challenges
to defend against the short game,
to defend against the running, and
see how good of a job we can do in
controlling that part of the running
game, so that it doesn't result in big--
run innings."
. The mirror he speaks of is his own
creation. Kentucky is coached by
John Cohen, a former hitting coach
under McMahon during the 2002
and 2003 seasons. Cohen played for
Mississippi State from 1987-89 while
McMahon was an assistant coach for
the Bulldogs.
"John is one of the outstanding
young coaches in the country today,"
McMahon said. "We have a very close
association. One, as a former player,
then as a working associate as a coach
here at the University -of Florida,
where he did an outstanding job for


us, and as a friend. Those are things
that are very special to me."
Cohen knows what to expect from
McMahon, but sometimes that isn't
enough.
"I think you'll see an offensive mir-
ror in a lot of neat ways:"
Pat McMahon
UF baseball coach

"I have a pretty good understand-
ing of what Pat's trying to do," Cohen
said. "But, the thing about baseball
that's different than a lot of other
sports is there isn't' any specific of-
fensive tendency you can look at. It's
not like in football where you can
look at game film and see that the
other team is running the wishbone or
something."
Cohen definitely won't have prob-
lems identifying UF's players, though.
"The other thing that is really kind
of neat for me is I recruited several
guys here that are out there playing
now," Cohen said. "I saw them
in high school and I've seen them
progress. Adam Davis, Justin Tordi,
Matt LaPorta most of those hitters.
Brandon McArthur I was in his
home when he committed to UF. Brian
Leclerc I recruited him too. It was fun
to be with those guys. Great parents,
great kids, it was a good group."
Cohen attributes much of his suc-
cess as a player and as a coach to his
relationship.with McMahon.
"I've known Pat since I was 19
years old," Cohen said. "He's been
like a brother to me. I think Pat bring-
ing me to Florida and giving me an
opportunity to come here has really
helped.me in my coaching career. I've
learned so much from Pat. The way
Pat treats people, and the way he han-
dles young men, is just inspirational. I


think Florida is very, very fortunate to
have him."
McMahon predicts future success
for Cohen -just not this weekend.
"He's going to do an outstanding
job at the University of Kentucky,"
McMahon said. "They've made a tre-
mendous commitment in every way
to the program."
Kentucky has won just one of the
last 17 meetings between the two
teams. This season, the Wildcats are
winless in four road games, while the
Gators are 18-5 at home.
Billy Grace, Kentucky's leading
hitter, knows his team faces a difficult
challenge this weekend.
"We're coming off of a couple-
game win streak," Grace said. "We're
looking forward to trying to really get
after it this weekend and try to com-
pete."
Grace may be sidelined with a wrist
injury suffered from sliding. Brian
Hastings, Kentucky's other standout
hitter, has a similar injury that will
require surgery today, Cohen said.
Kentucky has won two consecu-
tive games, including a 12-11 slugfest
against Louisville on Wednesday.
"The Kentucky-Louisville thing,
it's a lot like the UF-Florida State ri-
valry," Cohen said. "The-highlight in
Kentucky is the basketball part the
highlight here is the football part, but
they get into it in all sports. It's neat to
have those rivalry games."
The Wildcats will start freshman
pitchers on Friday and Saturday.
-Right-hander Scott Green (1-1,4.15)
gets the nod Friday against UF's Bryan
Ball (5-1, 1.70). Saturday features lefty
Andrew Albers (3-1, 2.88) against UF's
Tommy Boss (4-1,3.93).
On Sunday, Kentucky will send
junior Kalen Gibson (4-1, 3.10) to the
mound against Gators' starter Alan
Home (1-2, 5.67). -


Halfway through spring, Meyer's Gators are a totally different team


After whizzing past the halfway point
of its 2005 spring practice schedule,
the UF football team is already
noticeably different the players practice
differently, they carry themselves differ-
ently, they even talk differently under the
new regime.
Coach Urban Meyer's arrival has
brought legions of Gators fans to each and
every practice. His laid-back nature allows
for fans and media alike to sit and relax
while watching him groom his team. Then
again, his intense persona on the practice
field sometimes leaves parents searching
for earmuffs for their children.


Last spring, Ron Zook pushed the idea
of an up-tempo approach and intense prac-
tices. Camp Meyer would run laps around
Camp Zook.
Zook avoided singling out individual
players at all costs. Meyer holds each play-
er accountable for his own actions, and he
has no problem expressing his' displeasure
through the media. Zook expected steady
improvement. Meyer demands immediate
results.
But enough about the differences. It's
not really fair to compare a three-time na-
tional coach of the year with, well, a glori-
fied assistant coach.


.. ; Meyer has said that
his offense is not com-
plicated. It only -con-
", tains about 10-15 core
plays, and its success
is based mostly on
Brian Shaffer variety in pre-snap
Shaf At Home formation and move-
bshaffer@alligator.org ment. All of the plays
are in, and now it's
time to work on the precision.
The new coaching staff is constantly
conducting personnel evaluations, trying
to decipher the hand it has to play. This
scrimmage is another audition for those


looking for playing time. .
Forget about the offense you saw a week
ago, because you're going to get a lot more.
Expect crisper execution, sharper overall
play and increased intensity.
The offense that takes the field on
Saturday will be better than it was last
week. And the one that suits up for the
Orange and Blue game will be better than
this week's.
. Meyer is not impressed by. steady im-
provement or encouraged by correctable
mistakes. His goal is to take a 7-5 team and
mold them into a national champion,; one
practice at a time.

MEN'S AND WOMEN'S SWIMMING AND DIVING


Troy: swimmers must focus on their key events


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Writer

Everyone's on their own now.
Just like a fledgling being
pushed out of -its nest, the UF
swim teams have only them-
selves to worry about. After
battling through an entire season
based on team competitions, sev-
eral UF swimmers will head to
the World Championships start-
ing today and running through
April 7 in Indianapolis.
It won't matter how the Gators
perform as a team. All that mat-
ters is how each individual fin-
ishes, as they look to swim their


way into this summer's World
Championships and World
University Games teams. This
will also be UF's first opportu-
nity to post qualifying times for
the 2008 Olympic Trials.
"It's more of an individual
performance than a team per-
formance," Coach Gregg Troy
said. "There're just one or two
key events for each swimmer.
We want to have good swims in
the morning, and they take two
athletes for each event."
The Gators will bring 15 total
swimmers to the meet. However,
10 of those 15 are either sopho-
mores or freshmen; only three are


seniors. While this -lack of big-
meet experience may be a factor,
Troy'has a different plan.
"[Choosing who comes]
doesn't have to do with age,"
Troy said. "[It
had to do with]
who could make
it, do well, and
who needed ex-
perience. [With
our conference],
they're real ex-
Troy perienced. It is
different, but it's all still racing."
One younger swimmer, fresh-
man Natalie Pike, knows her
teammates' support will not be


there as much as it has previously
this season. But, her teammates
have instilled her with plenty of
spirit, so Pike is not particularly
concerned about the World Trials.
"Everyone has helped tremen-
dously," Pike said. "I came from
a small club team, and these girls
have been amazing."
While Troy said the NCAA
Championships and the
Southeastern Conference
Championships have been an
emotional drain, there may actu-
ally be a positive side to entering
more grueling meets.
"[The World Trials] are cer-
tainly important,, just not the


same stress factor as NCPAAs,"
Troy said. "It's a little more re-
laxed setting, everyone's not con-
cerned about every event.
You have got to be relaxed be-
cause the support is not as great.
There was no time between meets.
The men just had to go, and wgmen
had only about one extra week."
Pike agrees with her coach,
saying her stress level has actu-
ally dropped.
"We are a lot more relaxed,"
she said. "A lot was riding. on
NCAAs. We're still very focused,
and it will help everyone go fast.
I'm just excited to go and be a
part of the team."


Georgia next in string of relentless opponents for UF


* AFTER PLAYING THE NO. 11 TEAM,
THE GATORS NOW FACE NO. 12.

By WILLIS JACOBSON
Alligator Writer

The No. 13 UF softball feam will go
back on the road this weekend, this time
looking to reclaim its position on top of the
conference standings.-
Coming off a- week in which they
lost two of three games against No.
11 Alabama, the Gators (28-8, 7-2
Southeastern Conference) will travel to
Athens, Ga. for a three-game series with
No. 12 Georgia (31-7, 12-0 SEC). The teams
will play a doubleheader on Saturday and
conclude the series on Sunday.
Playing a talented team like Georgia,
who is defending a 19-game win streak,
immediately after a tough team like
Alabama is nightmare material for a coach
trying to devise a game plan. UF coach
Karen Johns, however, says that such a
scenario is common in SEC play.
"It's pretty status quo in our confer-
ence," Johns said. "It's not like it's some-
thing new. It's kind of like women's bas-
ketball, where every game you're playing
a ranked team, it seems like, and if they're
not ranked they're close to being ranked.


It's a pretty competitive league, so I don't
think that's anything we get too high or-
low about. We just know we have to play
Georgia now and we've got to be ready."
The "Gators pitchers will have their
work cut out for then as they try and
shut down the Georgia offense, which has
outscored its opponents 132-17 during its
win streak.
The Bulldogs are also second in the con-
ference in team batting average.
"We started preparing for [Georgia] a
little bit [on Wednesday] right after the
game," Johns said. "We talked a little bit
about some things that we have to do
.to prepare ourselves. I'll start doing the
homework and have a report ready for
them for the bus ride."
UF first baseman Melissa Zick will look
to continue her career-high eight-game hit
streak.
She is batting .500 during the streak,
a stark contrast to the rest of the team's-
combined .307 batting average over those
eight games. Zick said that she and her
teammates are excited -to get back out and
have another series against a fellow top-15.
team.
"We're really psyched to go and beat
them on their home field," Zick said. "If
we play like we can, I think we'll do all
right."

UF pitcher Mandy Schuerman hurls a pitch in Thursday's Alabama game. The. Gators

Saturday's doubleheader will begin start at 1 p.m. All games will be played at

Sunday's series-ending game will also leads the all-time series 19-11.


WOMEN'S GOLF

Briles-Hinton already preparing team for '06 postseason


By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Writer

UF women's golf coach Jill
Briles-Hinton is taking a unique
approach to this weekend's final.
regular season tournament, the
Bryan National Collegiate.
Rather than prepping for
the upcoming Southeastern
Conference Championships,
Briles-Hinton wants the No. 15
Gators to gain experience for
the 2006 postseason by playing
the par-72 Champions Course at
Bryan Park.
"They're [Wake Forest] host-
ing -regionals there in 2006,"


Briles-Hinton said. "That would
be the reason why we're going
there."'
Briles-Hinton has more rea-
sons for traveling to Browns
Summit, N.C. -for the 17-team
tournament practicing and
scouting.
In its last five stroke play tour-
naments, UP has toyed with five
different lineups. Only freshman
Tiffany Chudy has played in each
tournament.
"Would I like to have the team
solidified by now? Yes," Briles-
Hinton said. "I would have liked
to have it solidified earlier in the
year."


"Our team is deep enough
now and strong enough
now that we can [qualify]."
Jill Briles-Hinton
UF women's golf coach

Depending on what happens
through Sunday, Briles-Hinton
still may not have a set roster for
the postseason.
The seventh-year coach ex-
pects qualifying for the SEC
Championships starting April 15,
and continuing to determine her
rotation.
"Our team is deep enough
now and strong enough now that


we can [qualify]," Briles-Hinton
said.
Whitney Myers provided UF's
bright spot during qualification,
shooting rounds of 78, 72 and 76
at the University Golf Courge.
The freshman's collective
score was nine shots lower than
her three-round total at the Gator
Invitational the first weekend of
March.
"Sometimes that happens
when you have a long break,"
Briles-Hinton said. "She's; learn-
ing new shots. She's opening her
mind to hit new shots and she's
doing super.".
The five golfers who have


survived this week will get a
good look at SEC competition in
today's first round.
Andrea Vander Lende, Camila
Gonzalez, Sandra Gal, Myers and
Chudy will each be paired with
golfers from conference rvals
South Carolina and Vanderbilt.
No. 3 Auburn, No. 4 Georgia
and No. 10 Tennessee round out
the six-team SEC contingent at
the Bryan National.
- "We have three seasons: fall,
the first part of spring, and then.
we play our last four events,"
Briles-Hinton said. "This is just
the very first step for us to finish

strong in nationals."

Matt Marriott / Alligator Staf
Former UF coach Billy Donovan talks to Rick Pitino, his mentor, about being the head coach of Kentucky. Like
Donovan leaving UF to coach Kentucky, Pitino left Kentucky and later coached at rival Louisville.


O'F fan: 'Donovan's a sell-out and a punk'


DONOVAN, from page 1

Slive's comments, but several mem-
bers of the UF men's basketball were
seen mulling around the basketball
practice facility early Friday morn-
ing.
"We won those games legit,"
senior forward David Lee said.
"Everyone makes it seem like it's so
ridiculous that we beat Kentucky.
Gee, maybe it's because we're a good
team."
Several players had other issues
to consider.
"I love Coach Donovan," fresh-
man forward Corey Brewer said.
"Now that he's going to Kentucky,
I'll have to strongly consider transfer-
ring."
Al Horford also said he'd consider
a transfer to Kentucky. Everyone else
on the team, though stunned, said
they would remain at UF.
"I may even stay in school now,"
said junior guard Anthony Roberson,
wh6 was considering a jump to the
NBA. "I liked Donovan, he was a


cool guy, but he really held me back.
I want to dunk. People don't think
I have ups, but that's only because
Coach Donovan told me not to be
flashy and not to dunk, let D Lee and
Brewer be the high-flyers. Hopefully
Foley will-bring in a coach who will
let me fly."

Fans split
The Alligator went on a frantic.
search to find fans early Friday morn-
ing, and several people on the street
were given the news of Donovan's
departure to a mixed reaction.
"I think this is crap," junior Terry
O'Toole said. "Florida basketball has
unlimited potential if the right guys
come in. I don't get what's so great
about Kentucky? Who would want
to live in the middle of hick-ville
anyway? Donovan's a sell-out and a
punk."
Other fans backed Donovan, say-
ing it was too good of an opportunity
to pass up.
"Kentucky's always one of the best
teams in the country," senior Katie
Gonzalez said. "We should be,thank-
ing Donovan for all his hard work


and wishing him luck at Kentucky.
Hopefully we'll get a good coach who
can beat Donovan next season."
Some other fans echoed
Donovan's remark that Florida
is truly a football school.
"Who's Billy Donovan?" freshman
Tom Guthrie said. "I didn't even know
we had a basketball team."

The aftermath
Now Foley must go on an all-,
out search to find a new coach, just
months after convincing football
coach Urban Meyer to join the
Gators.
"All I wanted to do was enjoy
a Steely Dan show. I never expected
to have to deal with this," Foley
said. "We're a big time program and
we'll land a big time coach. The Billy
Donovan era will be an afterthought
- this team will start winning na-
tional championships under, the next
coach."
Donovan wasn't so sure.
"It'll be tough for the University
of Florida, I realize that," Donovan
said: "I'll make sure to go easy on
them next season."


Billy backstabs UF,


awaits UK pressure

S o Billy "March is my least favorite month"
Donovan decided to leave UF for Kentucky.
Can you blame him?
Two words: Ashley Judd. (UF has many fans hotter
than her, but whatever.)
But, seriously, let's look at the history.
UF finally has one Southeastern Conference
Tournament championship; Kentucky has 25.
Kentucky has seven national championships; UF
has zero.
Hmm. Which school would you want to coach at?
The fact of the matter is Billy D is not an idiot,
despite what you may think after 324,532 consecutive
first- or second-round losses. Anyone would've taken
this offer. Loyalty means nothing anymore. See Rick
Pitino who stabbed Kentucky fans in the back by
going to rival Louisville.
Not close enough for you? How about the good ol'
ball coach Steven Orr Spurrier coaching for another
SEC school? In the SEC East,
no less?
S If Spurrier can do it, there's
no reason Donovan can't.
Also, don't you think
Donovan is sick of all the UF
fans whining about how he can't
Ian Fisher get it done in the postseason?
Extra lannings The whiny fans have a good
ifisher@alligator.org point, but I'm sure it's getting
old to Billy. He doesn't need to
hear your crap; he gets enough
from us, the media.
Here's what I've realized, though.
All this NCAA Tournament losing was planned.
Billy needed a good excuse to get out of Gainesville.
He was trying to get fired so he could leave, but
Athletics Director Jeremy Foley wasn't hearing any of
it. Donovan. kept doing just well enough to keep his
job despite not trying to. So he finally decided to pull
his own plug.
Billy could've won all these postseason games if
he tried.
But wanting to go to Kentucky isn't the pertinent
question here. The question that needs to be asked is,
"Why the hell would Kentucky want Billy?"
Sure Donovan's been a good coach at UF, but it's
different in Lexington. Different as in the only thing
there is Kentucky basketball. They hardly even have a
football team, which is something people care about a
lot more in Gainesville.
The pressure to win is going to be insane. Think
about it this way: Billy hasn't been able to handle the
little pressure put on him at UF come Tournament
time. (OK, maybe that one season, but that seems like
ages ago.)
Billy is going from a big fish in a small pond (the
O'Connell Center, which rarely fills up) to a small fish
in the biggest pond (Rupp Arena, always packed with
the rabid Kentucky faithful.)
And there's only down to go at Kentucky. Billy bet-
ter be lucky.

to the Alligator after it was first to report
quarterback Chris Leak departing for NFL
Europe. Zook told one reporter his job was
a joke, but that reporter did not get fired, as
Zook did months later.

Since the Gators aren't practicing, there
probably won't be much of a story.
