Not officially associated with the University of Florida
VOLUME 98 ISSUE 133
FRIDAY, APRIL 8, 2005
By EMILY YEHLE
-Despite a federal warning
advising Americans to "defer
travel to Israel," UF officials
announced Monday that the
university will offer a study-
abroad program to the Middle
East after a four-year hiatus.
The Israel program now
serves as the exception to a UF
rule that prohibits study abroad
programs to countries with
U.S. State Department travel
warnings, said Lynn Frazier,
associate director of the UF
In fact, the program was can-
celled in 2001 when the warning
was first issued. The warning
has remained ever since.
Consistent student interest
convinced UF administrators
to resurrect the study-abroad
option, UF Interim Provost Joe
"We constantly get inqui-
ries about it," he said, adding
that several students have ap-
proached UF President Bernie
Machen about lifting the ban.
UF now is part of a very
small circle of American schools
offering a study-abroad pro-
gram to Israel, Frazier said.
Still, the move leaves ques-
tions over whether UF officially
will change its policy.
Although Frazier said she
couldn't comment on whether
she supported an official UF
program, administrators de-
fended the suspension in the
past by asserting that UF cannot
send students into danger.
In a 2002 Alligator col-
umn, Dennis Jett, dean of the
International Center, quoted
the federal travel warning as
evidence of that danger.
The current warning, revised
last November, catalogues
recent terrorist attacks and
concludes that "the U.S. gov-
ernment has information indi-
cating that American interests
(in Israel) could be the focus of
However, many students
attended universities in Israel
during the program's suspen-
sion and were allowed to trans-
fer their credits to UF.
"Students could and did reg-
Frazier sities, stu-
dents couldn't usefinancial aid,
such as Bright Futures scholar-
ships, to pay for their trips.
That system also forced
students to enroll in programs
on their own without knowing
whether UF would accept their
coursework, said Britt Tevis, UF
Gators for Israel president.
Many students and alumni
have contacted her to voice
excitement over the decision,
"The university has finally
seen a new perspective in that
Israel is actually a safe place to
study and an amazing place to
study," she said.
Tevis said she has been to
Israel six times but has never
studied there. Now that UF
is reinstating a study-abroad
program, she said she may par-
The program will work with
universities in Israel to offer UF
students credit, Frazier said.

UPD, county aid victims
* UNIVERSITY POLICE IS WORKING
TO IMPROVE SENSITIVITY.
By MEGAN SEERY
Alligator Staff Writer
While some sexual-assault victims at UF
may feel more comfortable using Alachua
County services, university officials want
students to know there are options on
"It really depends on the person," said
Tanja van der Veen, University Police vic-
tim advocate. "People may feel more com-
fortable using services on campus because
this is their home."
But often times, sexual-assault victims
may perceive police officers as cold or
standoffish when they're conducting an
investigation, Alachua County victim ad-
vocate Laura Kalt said.
Van der Veen said some victims may
have the wrong impression of police work
because of TV shows.
After a sexual-assault call is made, for
example, the first officer on the scene usual-
ly is there to confirm that a crime occurred.
Victims may feel "brushed aside" if
they think they are supposed to tell the
intimate details to the initial investigating
officer, van der Veen said. It is the more ex-
perienced detectives that later do in-depth
interviews with victims.
"The officer doesn't want the victim
to go through all of the details multiple
times," van der Veen said.
But the law-enforcement phase may
not be the only traumatic process fol-
lowing a rape.
"I don't think it's the fault of any one
entity in the system in general," van der
Veen said. "I don't think blame can be
laid anywhere for how people feel."
Van der Veen said the overall judicial
process can be "re-victimizing" for sex-
ual-assault victims because they may
have to relive the incident.
Pb Kalt points out that area
Safetylabs don't test for so-called
"date rape" drugs, such as
rohypnol and ketamine, unless a victim
files a complaint with police.
"There are things in the works to
change that," UPD spokesman Joe
Sharkey said, noting that "date rape"
drugs leave a victim's system very
"We're working on a way where peo-
ple can have the sexual-battery kit done
and have it stored for 30 days," he said,
adding UPD Police Chief Linda Stump
was involved with a similar program at
UPD officials are discussing the
program's feasibility with the Student
Health Care Center and other advocacy
groups, he said.
GAU to pick new provider

UF graduate students may or may
not graduate their health insurance next
A council opted Thursday to hold off

sion will come next Thursday.
"We're trying to find out whether we

the current plan, the change would stay
in effect for one year beginning in August.
The contract will then be re-evaluated for a

five different age brackets, with younger
graduate students getting cheaper rates.
The council requested information to see if

"We cost more and get less."
Graduate Assistants United co-president
UF administration offered better cov-
erage last year in order to attract more
quality graduate students. However, some
have requested faculty insurance, argu-
ing that since they teach, they should be
treated as teachers.
The plan was adopted last August,
when graduate assistants were granted a
$400 subsidy toward healthcare.
For that amount, Scarborough was
their only choice, GAU Co-President Todd
Reynolds said in March.
Compared to other institutions in
Florida, UF's health-insurance coverage
is good, said Michael Bowen, president of
the Graduate Student Council.
But, he added, the plan isn't competi-
tive with the Top 10 institutions UF strives
to be like.
"We cost more and get less," he said.

SANTA FE COMMUNITY COLLEGE
Extreme show today
By SKYLER SMITH
When a former three-time X-Games
competitor walked onto the Santa Fe
Community College campus with an
idea for a BMX show, he wanted to
take it straight to the top.
"I just walked onto campus and
asked to see the president," said Phil

* THE VENTURE IS A COMBINED EF-
FORT OF URBAN MEYER AND SG.
By RYAN MOSS
Alligator Contributing Writer
The "Rowdy Reptile" student section at
UF basketball games has been a hit. Now
Urban Meyer wants the football student sec-
tion to get its own catchy name.
Meyer joined forces with Student
Government to hold a contest that will give
UF students a chance to name their section.
"I want the general student population
at UF to feel like this is their football team,"
Meyer said. "We want all students to have
ownership of the program and this is a step
in that direction. We also want the rest of
the country to know what we already know
here in Gainesville that we have the best
student fans in the nation."
The contest begins Monday at 8 a.m.
UF students with valid UFID numbers
can submit their ideas on the UF Student
Government Web site at www.sg.ufl.edu/
gatorfootball. Students have until April 14 at
4 p.m. to submit entries, with only one entry
permitted per student.
"It is difficult to project how much par-
ticipation we'll get, but I do think we will get
a lot of participation because of the interest
in Gator football," said Mike Hill,. assistant
athletics director for external affairs.
UF students will select a winner online
from a pool of finalists April 18-22. The new
name will be announced on April 25.
In addition to being able to take credit
for naming the section, the winner will
also receive a prize package that includes
a football autographed by Meyer and
two tickets and hotel accommodations
to the 2005 UF-Georgia football game in
"This is a great opportunity to be
able to influence a tradition that will be
attached to Gator football for years to
come," Student Government Recreation
Cabinet.Director David Nigliazzo said.

This time,, we actually are feeling positive here in the
Department of Darts and Laurels.
It isn't because of the lovely spring weather we've been
having recently though yesterday was particularly nice.
It's not because of that first teasing hint of football season
known as the Orange and Blue Game.
It isn't even because Rep. Dennis Baxley has shown us
that the Legislature cares so much about students' academic
No, it's because there are only a couple more weeks left
until we can go on vacation. It's not an easy job here, slaving
over newspapers, Web sites and gossip columns so that we
can decide what the most important news is and then make
fun of it.
Plus, we hear that whole "not having class" thing is pretty
So put those books away, pay that smart friend of yours to

we head on out to this week's edition of...
Darts & Laurels
Starting off with the hope that we finally will be able to give
those bad guys exactly what they deserve, we give a you'd-
dirty-thief LAUREL to the Florida Legislature for passing a
bill that would allow Floridians to respond to threats to their
lives with equal force even to the point of drawing a gun on
their attacker, if their life is in danger.
Opponents wonder if this will lead to even more violence
now that residents can retaliate without fear of repercus-
sion-and if this is just another example of the National Rifle
Association flexing its political muscles-but they will come
around once they see the benefits of an "eye for an eye" self-
Instances of violent crime in Florida, which from now on
will be known as "The Thunderdome," surely will decrease
now.that would-be muggers will have to wonder if that bulge
under a potential mark's jacket is a cell phone or a magnum.
I Because nothing puts us more in the giving mood than
seeing other people, well, giving, we give a the-best-philan-
play-with LAUREL to a team of MIT scientists and corporate
sponsors for starting the "one laptop per child" project, in
which they plan to develop a fully functioning, Web-capable
laptop that can be produced for $100.
The human-interest element in this collaboration is all well
and good they plan to mass-produce these computers and
sell them to governments so that someday all children will
have one but the most important thing is: They're going to
make a laptop that only costs $100.
It certainly worn't be a high-performance machine, but
imagine a future in which access to the world of multimedia
and the Internet is cheaper than a pair of trendy jeans.
Because we have a policy of leaving everything relating to
our school assignments to the last minute, we give a so-we're-
read-good DART to the Board of Governors for requiring UF
to define and provide a means of measuring the knowledge
and skills that students will obtain from their degrees.
The board members apparently are not convinced that uni-
versities actually are teaching students anything useful.
As a result, students may be required to take an exam be-
fore they graduate that will ascertain what they have learned.
The board is hopeful that this will work, because it has seen
how fabulously well this idea has worked in the public school
system, where the FCAT, the SAT and other tests have revolu-
tionized how the state mismanages educational funding.
Besides, what student wouldn't want to take a last test
before they had to go out into the working world and never
take ohe again?

Letters to the Editor
Bill is common sense, not controversial
Editor People are going crazy over Rep.
Dennis Baxley's H-0837 bill regarding aca-
I've read the bill over and over. I've also
read the other statutes surrounding them
index.cfm. I can't understand where the hys-
terical ranting against this bill is coming from.
The bill simply lays out some additions to
existing statutes that outline basic rights for
students and faculty. This bill is as much for
people who work for the university as it is for
the students. What's so wrong with standing
up for academic freedom on both sides?
What's sad is that it has to come to this and
that we have to actually spell out what should
be common sense. Read it line for line and tell
me what's so outrageous about this bill.
Baxley does excellent work for liberals
Editor. Although I have denounced Rep.
Dennis Baxley in past letters to the editor, I fi-
nally have had a change of heart. As a liberal, I
feel it is important for the conservative right to
assist in promoting the liberal cause by show-
ing how ludicrous and dangerous right-wing
politicians can be. Baxley has been doing a
really great job.
Conservatives such as Baxley have decided
to ignore the beliefs of their constituents and
instead attempt to push their antiquated mi-
nority "values" on those trying to adapt to the
times. Republicans continue to push issues
that the majority of Americans disagree with
(see: Terry Schiavo, Social Security privatiza-
tion, denial of rights for same-sex couples,
etc.). Their control can't last too much longer.
I find it laughable that Baxley's so-called
"Academic Freedom Bill of Rights," which
he claims is intended to help and protect
students, has met staunch opposition from
students, including a resolution unanimously
'passed by the Student Senate denouncing
the recently proposed bill. All he's managing
to do with all this controversy is sway votes
away from the right. For that, I thank him.
At least one fraternity deserves praises
Editor: Fraternities often are attacked in-
stead of praised. Hopefully, this will help to
change that. I am the cook at Phi Sigma Kappa'
Fraternity, and I couldn't be more proud of
I also am a therapeutic foster mom of two
boys, who now have a second home here. Not
only are my boys welcomed and included in
basketball games or rounds of pool, but they
even are mentored by the fraternity brothers
while they are here. When I took the job of
cook, I worried about childcare during my
working hours. Instead, the brothers request-
ed I bring my boys to work.

Paper still printing opinions in Opinions
Editor: I'm writing this to highlight to all of
the readers an egregious sin that the Alligator
has committed and continues to commit:
They keep publishing opinions that everyone
doesn't agree with. Thankfully, we've got
bright students at UF who regularly write
in to the paper to demand this stuff not be
published. I agree wholeheartedly every time
a letter comes in calling this or that opinion
"a new low" for the Alligator because it was
published. Some of these rebels even threaten
never to read the paper again. These open-
minded individuals understand that there
really is only one perspective to anything and
rightly want to bury their heads in the sand
like an ostrich when there is even a hint of an
FRIDAY, APRIL 8, 2005 U ALLIGATOR, 7
opinion that differs from their own.
I don't understand how the Alligator gets
away with this stuff. Look at its criticism of
certain individuals in Student Government,
for example. Imagine if The New York Times
had an op-ed piece that criticized the Bush
administration they'd be shut down! And
Andy Marlette? He must think he's some sort
of editorial cartoonist. The nerve.
To help reform this publication and their
strange ideas about freedom of speech, opin-
ion and press, I'd like to suggest the following
things: 1) Encourage more letters to the editor
where the writer doesn't provide an alternate
opinion or rebuttal, but instead just complains
and whines that whatever offended them
should never have been printed in the first
place; 2) Take each issue to President Machen,
Athletic Director Foley and the Student Senate
for approval before distribution to ensure that
there is no chance of anyone being offended; 3)
Distribute custom editions of the paper to each
student based on political ideology, religion,
ethnicity, race, gender and sexual orientation
to ensure that there's no chance of any group
having to read opinions they disagree with.
If the Alligator follows these simple steps,
I think we'll be well on our way to creating a
world-class open forum of student expression
to match the world-class, tolerant and diverse
student body we have here at UF.

Porn debate discusses virtues of sex and disability
By NEIL HUGHES
S The great porn debate continued at UE on Thursday
:night sort of.
"I think we should all watch midget porn. It's
fun," said Bethany Stevens, president of the Union of
Students with Disabilities.
And with that attentionr-grabbing statement, Stevens
J introduced one of the more controversial speakers to visit
Former porn star Bridget "the Midget" Powerz was the
main attraction at the "Building a DisAbility Movement"
conference in the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom.
S Powerz was one of a number of speakers who dis-
cussed sexuality and disability in a blunt and, at times,
brutally honest fashion.
"I did catch an STD (sexually transmitted disease)
.doing an adult film," Powerz said. "It was, I believe, chla-
mydia. For those of you-not familiar, it is treatable if it's
caught on time.
"I didn't want to die," she added.
Powerz's negative experiences in porn led her to leave
the industry. She remains, however, an adult dancer,
which she said earns her a lot of money-
"My left knee is crooked," she said, referencing her
disability, "so that's why I always wear leg warmers when
I'm on stage dancing."
Powerz said she believesher role,in mainstream films
such as "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind" and "SWAT"
have given positive exposure for people with disabilities.
Stevens, who organized the conference, said she
received a great deal of criticism for having a porn star
represent disabled people.

sex life, noting that a nude painting of her was featured in
the presentation by artist Sunny Taylor, who also spoke at

* BIDDERS HAVE PURCHASED BICY-
CLES FOR AS LITTLE AS FIVE CENTS.
By ELIZABETH PRANN
Semester's end may not be the time stu-
dents are looking to buy a scooter or bicycle,
but it's probably when they can get one the
University Police will host its end-of-
semester Abandoned Property Auction on
Saturday to find new owners for 13 cars, 12
motor scooters, a 3-year-old Honda motor-
cycle and at least 450 bicycles.
UPD spokesman Joe Sharkey said the event
is a great opportunity to save money on gener-
ally expensive items.
"It's definitely beneficial for students,"
said UPD .spokesman Joe Sharkey, citing an
instance at a previous auction when a bidder
purchased a bicycle for a nickel.
"We've seen people purchase two or three
[bicycles] and then take the parts to create one
good one," he said.
The auction will take place at the Webb
Livestock Pavilion, located on Southwest 16th
Avenue and Shealy Drive. Bidder registration
and property inspection begins at 8 a.m.
UPD holds the event every semester, but
future auctions will be conducted through
an online auction by the University Surplus
Department, making Saturday the last hoorah
for the live event.
"We've seen people purchase two
or three [bicycles] and then take the
parts to create one good one."

Sharkey said there tends to be an impres-
sive turnout, but a specific estimate is un-
predictable because of weather and personal
"I've seen as many as a couple hundred
and asfew as 50," he said.
"The more the merrier," he added. "Come
out and get it."
However, he said his agency has never had
to take anything back to storage because the
items always find new owners.
All proceeds from the auction will go to
benefit the Gator Loan Fund, a scholarship
established to provide need-based financial
assistance to UF students.

Club cleans creek
By SKYLER SMITH
The UF Wetlands Club is
looking for a few good volun-
teers to help them clean up a
creek this weekend.
In partnership with the UF
School of Natural Resources
and Environment Council,
members of the Wetlands Club
will spend Saturday morning
from 9 to noon cleaning up
trash along Tumblin' Creek.
"The underlying issue is
water quality," said Jeff Smith,
president of the Wetlands Club,
which actually adopted a por-
tion of the creek.
Smith and dub treasurer Bill
White explained their group
got involved with the creek af-
ter one of their members wrote
a thesis on the impact of dredg-
ing on the creek.
This will be the club's third
cleanup of Tumblin' Creek since
"We've collected over two
tons of trash," White said, in-
cluding everything from old
credit cards to shopping carts.
Smith said this cleanup is
also a convenient way for stu-
dents-to get involved because
-Tumblin' Creek runs so close
to UF's campus and student
The creek begins near
Shands at AGH, flows behind
Sorority Row and eventually
empties into Biven's Arm Lake
west of Southwest 13th Street.
The Wetlands Club will
clean the portion that lets into
Biven's Arm, or the deltTaarea.
"The floodplain serves as a
filter for the large trash," Smith
The SNRE Council will
clean up the section of Tumblin'
Creek near the intersection of
Southwest Depot Avenue and
Southwest Sixth Street.
Fritzi Olson said Gainesville
residents should be concerned
about the creek's health be-
cause its water eventually flows
across Paynes Prairie and into
an aquifer that supplies drink-
ing water to the city.

Cheating reports up
By STEPHANIE GARRY
Alligator Staff Writer
The number of reported
academic honesty cases approxi-
mately doubled last academic year
compared to the two years prior.
From Fall 2003 to Summer
2004, about 222 incidents were
reported, in contrast to about 107
during the Fall 2001 academic
year, according to a Student
Affairs Update released recently.
Professors handled 80 percent of
the 528 total cases in the three-
year period,, mostly through
grade penalties, which accounted
for 68 percent of the consequential
actions against violators.
The incidence of violations
peaked in 2003, when half of the
academic-honesty cases from
2001 to 2004 were reported.
That March, UF implemented
a leading plagiarism-detecting
software called Turnitin, which
searches billions of Web pages
and databases to match students'
papers with online content.
The software creates an origi-
nality report that color-codes a
student's paper by -how similar
it is to other work. Professors
can then compare the suspected
segments to the original online
source to decide if the student

Starting Monday, the Student
Honor Court is bringing the is-
sue of academic honesty into UF
classrooms with presentations it
hopes will curb plagiarism and
cheating on the eve of exams.
But Williams said this semes-
ter's emphasis on academic hon-
esty, including the campaign to get
students to sign to the Honor Code
and the in-class presentations, is
not a result of that 2003 spike.
Rather, the Dean of Students
Office has chosen to focus on aca-
demic honesty in its-annual Code
of Conduct push.

Williams said. "We need to make
sure that academic integrity
continues to be an issue that we

UF joins ESA, NASA black-hole research project
By ADRIENNE SERRA
Alligator Contributing Writer
UF students and researchers
may play a vital role in discovering
some of the greatest mysteries of the
A team in the Department of
Physics is researching components
of the Laser Interferometer Space
Antenna, a joint mission between
the European Space Agency and
NASA to detect gravitational waves
"It's opening a new window to
the universe," said Guido Mueller,
head of UF's LISA research team.
Gravitational waves are caused
by the movement in space of mas-
sive bodies, such as black holes.
Scientists have- been unable to di-
rectly detect these waves from Earth
because of their low frequency, but
LISA may solve this problem.
"If you look at the dynamics of
black holes, black-hole physics is
mathematically an unsolved prob-
lem at this moment," Mueller said.
"Super-massive black holes in the
center of the galaxies are jumping,
crashing into each other, and these
big processes generate'tons of gravi-
tational waves and will tell us a lot
about the space-time curvatures
around these black holes and how
often this happens in the universe.
This is very important if you look
into galaxy formation."
LISA, with a launch date set for
2013, will be composed of three
separate spacecrafts flying in a tri-
angular pattern, with distances of
5 million kilometers between each
one. Gravitational waves will be
measured by changes in the dis-
tances between freely falling objects
inside the spacecrafts.
"Formation flying is one of the
next big things in technology, and
LISA is the first major mission that's
te-sting th -e thLn.-." Mueller said.
The aspect of LISA that UF is
researching is laser interferometry,
a very precise technology that will
measure the distances between the
spacecraft to within 10 picometers,
or half a billionth of an inch.
"It's opening a new window
to the universe."
Head of UF's LISA
"We are at this moment the only
university in the United States that's
involved in the interferometry,"
UF is working with the NASA
field center- Goddard Space
Flight Center and- Jet Propulsion
Laboratory, the University of
Colorado, the Albert Einstein
Institute in Hanover, Germany,
and the University of Glasgow in
the Linited Kingdom on the laser
interferometry and data analysis
One of the technological chal-
lenges of LISA will be analyzing
data collected from lasers, which
will also be carrying informational
signals and frequency noise.
S"We essentially build an experi-.
nwnt dowrntaii. that simulates all
aspects of the LISA interferom-
etry and that would produce data

to the data streams we expect in
space," Mueller said.
For students, an average day in
the lab might involve aligning lasers,
working with vacuum chambers,
building electronic components and
"It's a lot of optics, a lot of elec-
tronics, a little bit of vacuum physics
and a little mechanical engineering,"
UF's LISA team includes three
graduate students and five under-
"These types of research projects,
I think, are especially good because

big-scale research," Mueller said. "It

"It's all kind of cutting-edge
electronics which is pretty interest-
ing," said Ira Thorpe, a graduate
researcher. -"The long-term goal is

love with Serena Williams (a large man with boobs), but thinks Gwen
Stefani is an "ugly, skinny rich bitch." Two of those four are actually
true, but last I checked, skinny and rich were good things.
In the three-hole is alligatorSports.org Editor/night owl Andrew
"facts aren't really important" Abramson, who is going to break the
record for most times a newspaper gets sued for libel in one semester
when he takes over this rag in the fall.
In fourth for no particular reason is columnist/futuo- teacher Brian
"Yes means yes!" Shaffer, who has dealt with more drama this semester
than every sorostitute at UF combined. Yay, ninth grade!
In fifth because he takes seven hours to write a short notebook is
columnist-/ bad luck charm Gregg "I think I'm going to write a religion
column instead of one on sports" Girvan, who we're going to choose
not to make fun of here because God already beat us to it.
Last, and always least, is this week's token newsroom picker/
resident frat boy, Nick "Wild Iris lesbian bookstore's best customer"
Weidenmiller, who didn't like the girls in thongs and wet T-shirts at the
club on Wednesday, so he got drunk enough to get kicked out.

While fans will be focused on the tailback
competition between DeShawn Wynn, Skyler

Cornelius said. "I think they'll be excited about

Yes, yes we know. You have missed
the Alligator Brand Picks ColumnTM.
Well, fear not, kiddies, because we're
back in action. However, I bet we know
something you don't miss: Ron Zook.
That's right, he's gone (in case
you've been living under a rock for the
past half a year or so). And we couldn't
miss him any less.
But, you know what they say. One
man's trash is another man's treasure.
To find out how Zook is doing at his
new job at Illinoise, we rang up Adam
Zook, a recent Illinoise graduate that
luckily isn't related to Ron.
Adam said he was a fan his first cou-
ple of years, but not so much anymore.
"They were so bad, it got annoying
to watch," he said.
Something tells me that's not getting
better. I can't even imagine the damage
R.-'' could do to a crappy team.
"Not everyone is ecstatic about it,"
Adam said. "The feeling is that he's a
good recruiter but not a good coach."
Not a good coach? Adam was off on
that one. I'd say closer to "terrible" than
"not good," but that's just me.
Adam said he predicts four wins
for the not-really-Fighting Ilini, but he
wants to use Zook for something else.
"I do plan to e-mail him to see if I
can get any tickets out of him," Zook
That begs the question: How hard
could it be to get tickets for such a crap-
py team? Anyway, on to the picks!

Wide receiver Jemalle Cornelius will be one of several explosive
players to watch in the Orange and Blue Game on Saturday.
By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
History's most revered fifth-
year coach to never run a team in
a major conference has arrived.
And if calling Meyer his-
torical sounds a little premature,
just listen to UF receiver Jemalle
Cornelius's assessment of the
large number of fans. expected to
arrive for Saturday's Orange and
"People like to be around
greatness," Cornelius said. "So
they want to come out and wit-
ness that first hand."
The greatness Cornelius al-
ludes to is Urban Meyer, the two-
time defending national Coach of
the Year at Utah.
However, Meyer has compiled
a 0-0 record at UF and won't be
coaching his first official game
Perhaps only when Heisman-
winning quarterback Steve
Spurrier returned to coach his
alma mater was there as much
buzz surrounding a new UF
regime as now. Another object
of interest to fans Saturday will
be Meyer's almost indescribable
spread offense, which the Gators
have spent weeks attempting to
If it were up to Meyer, the
Gators would have a few more
weeks to truly master the art of
"We're going to [play on
Saturday]," Meyer said. "But no,
we're not ready."
Even if the spread offense is
months away from perfection,
the players admit they can't wait
to play in front of an estimated
crowd of 50,000. And to ensure
fans will enjoy a competitive
scrimmage, Meyer will mix and
match players from the first- and
"People like to be around
greatness. So they want
to come out and witness
that first hand."
So what can fans expect to see
from the Gators?
Meyer couldn't quite describe
the offense at this developmental
stage, but he stressed the im-
portance of the running game.
Meyer's trademark has always
been his unorthodox approach to
the passing game.
"I think we're a balanced of-
fense that- takes great pride in
knocking people off the ball,"
Meyer said. "We're a physical
group. If you're good running
the ball and.you put an extra guy
in the box, and then you have

E SPN's Kirk Herbstreit and Sports
Illustrated's Kelly King deemed it im-
portant enough to pay a visit.
More fans showed up for the first day of
spring practice then they did for the Orange
and Blue Game a year ago.
And somehow Chris Leak has seen his
name dropped as a Heisman contender,
despite the presence of Matt Leinart, Reggie
Bush, Ted Ginn Jr. and Adrian Peterson.
Yes, the Swamp is abuzz with excitement,
thanks to Coach Urban Meyer.
Saturday's Orange and Blue Game is the
final showcase for Meyer's Gators before
shutting it down until the start of summer
camp. People will show up in droves. But
what will they see?
Ah, that's where I come in. Good news

Jackson. I see him high-
stepping into the end
zone more than once.

throughout the spring.
Former coach Ron
Zook was able to finagle Jackson away from
his home state of Alabama, but he did little to
tap into his full potential. Jackson will flour-
ish under Meyer, becoming-the most produc-
tive receiver in the Southeastern Conference
next season. Saturday's game will set the
stage for Jackson's breakout year. -
Next, I see Billy Latsko yes, Billy
Latsko. And I see Latsko pacing both teams in
tackles. Meyer has moved the former fullback
to linebacker and has once again proven that
he can see things that Zook whiffed on.
Latsko has been a terror throughout the
spring. And while he might not be in the
mix as a starter, he is knocking on the door.
Saturday, Latsko kicks that door in by tack-
ling everything that moves.
Finally, I see Derrick Harvey. I see No. 91
having about that many sacks in the spring
finale. However, this speaks as loudly about
Harvey as it does about the Gators' reserve

With new-look Gators, everyone is a winner or loser

sulked toward the sideline.
But why did this matter? The
offense wore orange and blue, not
garnet and gold.
Because spring practice or
January bowl game, everything
has a winner and a loser. That's UF
coach Urban Meyer's motto.
"If there's not a winner or loser,
why the hell are we doing this?"
At the start of spring prac-
tices, Meyer proclaimed every
Wednesday and Saturday "competi-
tion days." But after witnessing one
of those workouts, any rational per-

UF football, coach
son might wonder if Meyer operates
on a two-day calendar.
Almost every practice ends in a
competitive scrimmage. At the end
of the day, the losers run.
- "When there's a winner and
there's a loser, e bervbod is going to
go a little harder," offensive coordi-
nator Dan Mullen said.
Like the infamous Circle of Life,
which pits- teammates one on one
in gladiatorial-like combat, Mullen
explained, the eternal scrimmage
is another of Meyer's offbeat but
long-standing methods of increas-
ing tenacity and toughness in his
"I know when he was coaching
receivers [atNotre Dame], those guys
were leaving with headaches every
day because they'd be smashing and
butting up," said Mullen, a former
Irish assistant with Meyer. "Like
[how] we circle up, he'd be doing
.that with his receivers. Those guys
were a little bit spooked, I guess."
Besides, regular old football drills
aren't even that exciting, right?
"Sometimes I find myself getting
bored during practice, watching-
guys run over bags," Meyer said.
But Meyer's practices?
"You. don't even realize that
you're -working," freshman line-
backer Brandon Siler said. "Instead,
you just realize that you're compet-
ing, and you're just trying to win."
It's a vast departure from last
season's practices, but one that
could bode well for the Gators jome
"Last year we just kind of went
over schemes," freshman safety
Kyle Jackson said. "During the

* COACH SAYS ARRIVING LATE
SHOWS. LACK OF DISCIPLINE.
By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
Thou shalt not skip class.
Thou shalt not be tardy for class.
These are Coach Urban Meyer's mes-
sages to his football faithful. Because while
The Pit may steal the headlines, the class-
room is where Meyer's core values are first
Sound like a frivolous policy? For a man
that sees a connection between football and
everything else, that couldn't be farther
from the truth.
"If you have class at eight o'clock and
you show up at 8:04, you're not a very dis-
ciplined person," Meyer said. "You're the
same guy that's going to jump offsides in
the fourth quarter against Tennessee."
And so the Gators the younger., play-
ers, the more troublesome players, the
slower ones in the classroom are tracked.
Meyer has dispatched the Office of Student
Life to ensure they attend every class es-
pecially the early ones on time.
"If it's [junior center] Mike Degory? J
don't care if he misses a class," Meyer said.
"If it's [sophomore quarterback] Chris Leak,
I don't care. If it's one of our scarlet [letter]
guys, there's a price to pay."
The Office of Student Life treks to every
UF auditorium, hall and closet where play-
ers attend class. They peek through the
doors, jot down whether players are absent
and leave only to do it all over again the
"Ever since Coach Meyer got here, he
laid down some rules and told us that if we
don't follow those rules
we're out of here," fresh-
man running back Markus
Manson said. "Nobody
wants to leave, so we're
just following the rules."
Here's the kicker: most
of the Gators don't know
Manson what the punishment for
hooky is. Understandably,
they don't want to find out.
"He wants us to keep guessing, but
we don't want to guess," Manson said.
"So we go to class because we don't know
what Coach Meyer and them have up their
Meyer's classroom ethics are based on
his "Live Right" philosophy. From social
etiquette to class attendance, Meyefrhas UF's
collective chin up and alert about how to be
a responsible person.
"The policy is, 'Live right and they don't
check up on you,'" junior wide receiver
Dallas Baker said. "I mean, they check up on
everyone, but, 'Do the right things and we
don't have to worry about you. Live right.
And not living right just isn't something
players are considering anymore.
"It's either class or punishment," Manson
said. "And the punishment is worse, so you
have to go to class. Just go to class. It ain't
going to hurt you."

UF prepares for regional
By DAN TREAT
Entering this season, expectations were nev-
er higher for the No. 7 UF gymnastics team. The
team returned seven All-Americans and added
one of the nation's best recruiting classes.
Coach Rhonda Faehn's goals for this squad
v. t.4. high she wanted the Southeastern
Conference and national championships.
Despite those lofty goals, the Gators finished
the same place they did last year fourth -
behind Georgia, Louisiana State and Alabama
at the SEC meet.
UF admittedly put a large amount of pres-
sure on itself to win that competition, pressure
that Faehn is looking to alleviate at Saturday
night's NCAA Southeast Regional.
"We're really just trying to not necessarily
take it down a level as far as the level of pres-
sure for this type of-competition, for Regionals
being a qualifier for NCAAs," Faehn said.
The gymnasts enter this meet with a com-
pletely different outlook than the one carried to
the conference meet.
"We're goiin there to prove something,"
sophomore Savannah Evans said. "We're not
going in there to win. We're going to show each
routine for each skill that we have, and it's a
home meet. We have home-field advantage."
UF better at least focus on finishing second,
as only the top two teams will advance to the
The Gators will face No. 17 Denver, who
is coached by former UF gymnast Melissa
Kutcher-Rinehart and has Cassidy Willingham,
daughter of University of Washington football
coach Tyrone Willingham, on its squad. Other
competitors include No. 25 North Carolina, No.
26 West Virginia, No. 28 North Carolina State
and UF's old nemesis, No. 5 Georgia.
Georgia claimed the SEC title, defeating UF
by 1.1 points two weeks ago, a defeat the Gators
are eager to have the opportunity to avenge:
"The purpose of this competition is
to go out and be consistent and hit
extremely clean routines to prepare
us for NCAAs."
UF gymnastics coach
"When we didn't know who we were go-
ing against in Regionals, I remember they were
like, 'It's either Georgia or Michigan,'" Evans
said. "And a bunch of us were like 'Oh, I hope
it's Georgia.' We want to prove to them that
last week was a mistake, that we have stuff to
While Faehn agrees with her All-American
to a certain extent, she stresses that it is ex-
tremely important to be consistent tomorrow
"Well, obviously we feel like we have some-
thing to prove coming off of SECs because we
know we're capable of so much more than
that," she said. "However, in the same sense,
it's really important that they just come back
into the gym and cleaned up the areas with the
mistakes ... [It's] a big thing where we have to
prove this at this competition.
"The purpose of this competition is to go
out and be consistent and hit extremely dean
routines to prepare us for NCAAs."

There is no other way to describe
the performance of the Georgia base-
In a preseason poll, the Bulldogs
were chosen to finish second in the
Southeastern Conference Eastern
Instead, UGA (17-12, 2-6 SEC)
finds itself looking up at the first-place
Gators from fifth place. For UF coach
Pat McMahon, he's happy to see his
team starting to show the talent that
has it ranked fifth in the nation.
"Confidence comes through hard
work," McMahon said. "We've got
guys that work extremely hard, and
they believe in each other."
McMahon, who collected his 500th
career victory last Saturday against
Kentucky, knows his team, isn't as
good as it can be.
"There are areas of our ball club that
still need improvement," McMahon
said. "But we're making aggressive
mistakes. Our guys understand and
know that and still battle through
that, through my wrath, etc.,and other
things that happen."
The Gators (23-7, 6-3 SEC) will
start senior right-hander Tommy
Boss (4-1, 4.93 ERA) tonight against
UGA's Michael Hyle (1-2, 4.58 ERA).
Junior right-hander Alan Home (1-2,
5.46 ERA) will start Saturday's game
against Bulldogs senior RHP Sean
Ruthven (1-2, 4.15 ERA). The pitchers
for Sunday's finale are undecided.
McMahon has a tough choice to
make between junior Bryan Ball and
freshman Stephen Locke.
'Locke was very impressive against
Florida State on
March 30, while
Ball has a record
of 5-1 and leads
the team in innings
pitched. Locke has
won all four of his
starts with an 0.83
McMahon ERA in 21.2 innings
UGA won both ends ofa home-and-
home series from Clemson earlier this
week.. The Bulldogs took Tuesday's
matchup in Athens 11-10, as Jason
Jacobs went 2 for 4 and drove in five
runs. UGA defeated Clemson again on
Wednesday, 4-1, with Jonathan Wyatt
finishing 2 for 3 with two RBI.
In SEC play, UGA has suffered
sweeps to Louisiana State and South
Carolina while recording a sweep of
Kentucky The Bulldogs are 10-4 at
home and have won their last three
games at Foley Field.
Last season, UF eliminated the
Bulldogs from the SEC Tournament.
