* A UF-RECORD 58,500 FANS WIT-
NESSED COACH URBAN MEYER'S
FIRST SPRING GAME.
By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
Urban Meyer calls it humbling. Dallas Baker
calls it flat out strange.
A record 58,500 sunburned, tailgating fans
witnessed a Meyer-coached home game.
And this was just a scrimmage. In April.
"This is the first time I've been nervous be-
fore a spring game," Meyer said. "I knew a lot
of people would be watching."
Shattering the previous record attendance
for an Orange and Blue game by nearly 20,000,
fans were treated to an afternoon full of new
offensive looks and unexpected stars in the
Orange's 34-28 victory.
Meyer admitted that he "handcuffed" the
defense, but a stadium more than half full
didn't exactly show up to see what sort of tricks

"You can walk out there [with the score] 3-0
and the defensive coaches feel good, but 58,000
people and the players don't feel real excited
about what's going on because nothing hap-
pened out there," Meyer said.
So Meyer decided to give the fans a treat,

Chris Leak, didn't waste.any time.

the game, Baker made an acrobatic one-handed.

Meyer liked what he saw and on the
Orange's next possession Baker hauled in a 48-
yard touchdown reception.
For a player that has been labeled an under-
achiever in his three seasons at UF, Baker sud-
denly looks like a real threat in the offense.,
Chad Jackson and Andre Caldwell have
been getting all the hype in the off-season,
but six receptions for 134 yards and a third
touchdown in the second quarter reaffirmed to
Meyer.what he has witnessed all spring.

* UF RECENTLY RECEIVED
A DONATION OF RARITIES.
By BRIDGET CAREY
Alligator Staff Writer
Comic-book geeks love UF.
UF is one of the top institutions
for comics research, especially
following a recent donation of
thousands of rare comics to UF's
library. Some experts already see
the university as a nationwide
leader for comic and animation
Scholars can review rare comic-
book aficionado Sol Davidson's
collection in the special collec-
tions section of Smathers Library.
Davidson, 79, spoke at Smathers
on Friday afternoon to a group of
interested students and professors
about his donation for the benefit
of future research.
"You're the guys that are inter-
ested, so you deserve the materi-
als," Davidson said, adding that
UF is the "only one place in the
whole world" that has a large
group of scholars dedicated to se-
rious research regarding comics.
Davidson and his wife, Penny,
have worked on building a collec-
tion for decades. Davidson said
most of the time, they did not know
what they were looking for, just as
long as it looked like a comic.
"I had no idea they'd be valu-
able, and I didn't care," Davidson
The collection is considered
priceless, said Robert Shaddy, UF
librarian and special-collections
Davidson is a pioneer in the
field of comic studies and was the
first in the nation to earn a Ph.D.
. The Davidson collection con-
sists of a few well-known pieces,
such as the first Dick Tracy and
Mickey Mouse comics. Other com-
ics date back as far as the late 1880s
and include Victorian comics and
'nearly 21,000 clips
-On from Sunday news-
Campus paper strips. The
rare comics, some of
which were educa-
tional or promotional giveaways
to children, have never been stud-
fed, Davidson said.
The library also stocks mod-
em comics, such as Superman
and Batman. An extremely rare
comic in the collection is "Reign
of Superman," published in 1933
when Superman was a villain. He
later debuted as a hero in 1938's
The old comics can reveal
much about the history of
American popular culture and at-
titudes toward genders and races,

He told the crowd that if people don't know
the words to the Orange and Blue fight song,
they won't be welcomed back.
The event came to a close as the players,
coaches, cheerleaders, mascots, the UF Glee

sing "We are the Boys from Old Florida."

Machen appoints UF graduate as special assistant
* BRIAN BEACH HELPED LEAD
UF's PRESIDENTIAL SEARCH.
By STEPHANIE GARRY
Alligator Staff Writer
UF President Bernie Machen has
appointed a UF business graduate
to serve as his special assistant, help-
ing with the university's upcoming
fundraising campaign, public rela-
tions efforts and meetings of UF's
highest governing body.
Brian Beach, 35, is the managing
director of the Fort Myers-based
investment firm founded by Manny
Fernandez, the chairman of UF's
Board of Trustees.
He now will work full time in the
The position has not been com-
pletely defined, but he will serve as
Machen's representative in certain
roles. UF created the position because
the president is being "pulled in all
kinds of directions," Beach said.:
He took the job because he is
excited about the university's plan
to become a Top 10 public research
university, he said.
He will earn about $100,000 a
year in salary and benefits.
"With two degrees from the
University of Florida, I have a lot of

holds a bachelor's degree in finance
and a master's in business adminis-
tration, both from UF's Warrington
College of Business, and he isn't
new to UF's administrative affairs.
He serves on the Dean'sAdvisory
Board of the Warrington College and
the advisory board for the Center for
Entrepreneurship and Innovation.
He also helped Fernandez lead the
presidential search that brought
Machen to Gainesville.
The UF administration has never
had a formal link with the Board of
Trustees, spokesman Steve Orlando
said. Beach will be the first since the
board's creation in 2001.
"He's going to be a direct liaison
between the president's office and
.the trustees," Orlando said. "There's
never been a position dedicated to.
that type of work."
Though Beach's background is in
finance and investment, he said his
past positions have given him plen-
ty of managerial experience, such as
developing long-term strategies and
recruiting administrative teams, that
will help him in this new role.
Beach earned his bachelor's in
1990 and his master's in 1995 and
began his career at Ernst & Young as
a senior consultant. He has worked
in executive positions at several
Florida investment firms.

Following recent controversies surround-
ing alcohol consumption in Gainesville, Scan
Technology Inc. presented an age verifier to
bars and clubs as a potential solution to one of
the issue's many facets.
The age Verifier is a machine that confirms
the validity of driver's licenses by displaying
the holder's information on a computer along
with a green or red light depending on age.
Scan Technology plans to hold a press
conference at Gator's Dockside on Thursday.
Executive Vice President Stephen Flowers said
he will donate an age verifier to the restaurant
and sports bar.

tion attempting to reduce substance abuse,

He said he hopes the new product will im-

The company has contacted Gainesville
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan as well as District
3 City Commissioner Tony Domenech, who
faces a runoff election April 19, about the
product in hopes of gaining their support to
fight underage drinking.
Both the mayor and commissioner received
informational software, as well as a letter in-
forming them about the product.

Canseco to discuss steroids, baseball career at O'Dome
* HE WAS A PRINCIPAL WHISTLE-
BLOWER ON THE STEROID ISSUE.
By STEPHEN MAGRUDER
A whistleblower on baseball's steroid-abuse
investigation and one of the most infamous
sports- figures in recent history, Jose Canseco,
will kick off his college tour Wednesday at UP.
Canseco, a retired Major League Baseball
player, wrote the -book "Juiced: Wild Times,
Rampant 'Roids, Smash Hits, and How
Baseball Got Big," where he admits to using
steroids while playing and named several
players who he said used the banned sub-
stance to boost their performance.
As a result of the book's release, Canseco
testified before Congress in March and has ap-
peared on several television news programs.
"Canseco seemed to be the No. 1 figure
in the news and media," Accent Chairman
David Buchalter said.
UF's speaker's bureau Accent is sponsoring
the event at the Stephen C..O'Connell Center
at 8 p.m. It is free and open to the public.
Buchalter said the moral and ethical issues
Canseco will address in the world of sports will
open up a "Pandora's box" for organizations
such as the University Athletic Association.
"It's a prevalent thing," Buchalter said of
steroid use in sports. "It's not something he's
willing to hide behind." ..
"Canseco's definitely a contro-
versial speaker right now. Con-
troversial speakers breed big
The speech will be especially relevant to UF,
which is fueled by sports, Buchalter added.
Canseco who played for seven major
league teams also will address his 16-year
journey through the game ending in 2002.
One day after his announcement, Canseco
told ESPN of his plans to write a tell-all book
about steroid use in Major League Baseball.
Canseco is the latest in a list of controversial
speakers brought to UF by Accent during the
2004-2005 school year, including filmmaker
Michael Moore and pom star Ron Jeremy.
Students tend to show up in greater num-
bers for speakers with opposing viewpoints to
their own, Buchalter said, noting that support-
ers and detractors of Moore came to see.him.
"Canseco's definitely a controversial
speaker right now," he said. "Controversial
speakers breed big questions."

Telling people they can't curse on
the air is not something that we
can or should complain about.
The airwaves that radio and television
stations broadcast on are public air-
waves, and it's a very scarce resource.
Thus, those airwaves must be used in
a way that-is of the greatest use to the
public. That's why they're called "pub-
Chris lic airwaves."
Chris A -broadcaster
Singleton telling people,
Speaking Out "They can just
channel if they don't like it," is fine, but
they had better be serving the greater
good of the public in some way.
The problem is deciding what the
greater good of the public is. I believe
getting a few good laughs on your
way to work or school is something
that serves the greater good. People
in better moods are more productive.
The flip side is that what makes some
people laugh gets others quite angry,
and angry people usually aren't as pro-
ductive as possible. That's what makes
censorship such a controversial issue.
The other spectrum with this prob-
lem is cable. Most people believe cable
is censored just like broadcast, because
it's on TV. The truth is that cable does
not have the same standards as broad-
cast TV. Indecency is allowed to be
shown around the dock, seven days
a week. On broadcast TV, it's only al-
lowed during the "safe harbor" of 10
p.m. to 6 a.m. The line still is drawn at
obscenity, but if you make it Pay-Per-
View, obscenity, is allowed. Cable is
not a limited resource. They can show
a guy cursing at a huge pair of breasts
at 4 in the afternoon if they want to.
They're afraid, though, they'll lose
their advertisers and thus their profits.
That's a form of censorship we face.
That's why eight radio stations op-
erate out of the same building in almost
every city. With eight stations working
together, there's no need for eight news
departments, so seven are eliminated,
essentially deleting seven perspectives
from the minds of the public. That's
another form of censorship.
Another form of censorship comes
straight from the listeners. It's a dif-
ferent type of person who listens to
Howard Stem or Lex and Terry than
listens to Rush Limbaugh. Some Rush
Limbaugh fans are what I call "letter
writers." When they hear .something
they find offensive, and feel like their
specific viewpoint is not being respect-
ed, they write a letter. This usually
is sent to the boss of the person they
heard say the thing that offended him.
When a general manager gets an angry
letter from a listener, talking.about go-
ing to all of their advertisers and telling
them, and starting petitions, etc., the
GM is less likely to keep that person or
show on the air. There's a local show
here like that, which brutally tells us
that anybody who doesn't think like
President Bush is an idiot. When I
and others like me hear a show like
that, we just change the channel we

That's the biggest form of censorship:
the people listening.

Talk radio program did not encourage drinking
Iam writing to voice my disappointment in
the decision by UF to suspend the Friday
edition of the Lex and Terry show and
their "Drunk Bitch Friday" segment. While I
applaud the efforts of the administration to pro-
actively combat the rising incidents of alcohol
abuse, anyone who listens to the show knows
that they do not promote binge drinking, un-
derage drinking or drinking and driving. The
show is about showing how stupid people can
get when they consume too much alcohol. I
feel the premise, while being entertaining and
boosting ratings, would actually be to discour-
age alcohol abuse.

Speaking Out Conclave, the annual

in Minneapolis in July, there were many people
talking about what a great idea the segment was
and wishing they had thought of it first. There
is no shortage of willing participants, and ev-
erything is handled to ensure the safety of the
guest on the show.
While some women may be offended by the
title of the show, it's their choice not to listen. We
still live in a country that guarantees the right to
free speech, a right I spent almost 22 years of
my life defending. It's ironic that this decision

comes on the heels of an e-mail from one of our
professors that was read on the air. Why now,
after the show-has been running for so long, is
there a question about the show violating FCC
standards? Radio is driven by ratings. If there
are that many people offended by this program,
then the ratings should show that. I'm not a fan
of syndicated programming to begin with, as I
feel it takes away from the local feel of a station
and takes away jobs from good radio person-
alities. If the Arbitron ratings show WRUF-FM's

UF and WRUF consider replacing the show.

Radio station censorship
part of a disturbing trend
There is a short list of things you just do not mess with.
You don't tug on Superman's cape.
You don't spit in the wind.
You don't, under, any circumstances, mess around with
But most of all, you don't take away the only thing that
keeps the surly, coffee-laden, early-morning workers of
Gainesville going: raunchy talk radio.
President Machen and the Board of T.ustees, .despite as-
surances that they aren't trying high to remove all mention of
alcohol from Gainesville, have struck again. This time, they've
taken an entire radio program with them.
The Friday edition of the Lex and Terry show, the nationally
syndicated program that helps countless Gainesville residents
make it to their workplaces, likely no longer will be broadcast
on WRUF-FM Rock 104.
Why won't it be broadcast anymore, despite the rabid fol-
lowing the program has in town?
Because it has a segment called "Drunk Bitch Friday,"
which, as you can imagine, contains a bit of alcohol.
Sure, there were complaints that the show objectifies
women despite the fact that the waiting list of women who
want to get on the show is longer than the one for American
Idol but we know this really isn't about that.
This is "Rascal Flatts shouldn't be allowed to have Coors
Light advertisements" all over again.
It makes sense, though: If Machen and UF are committed
to removing the "alcohol problem," they have to get rid of
anything that might remind students of alcohol.
After all, students can't drink alcohol if. they don't know
what it is.
Of course, UF certainly can't get rid of the annual "A
Celebration of Wine" fundraiser for WUFT and WJUF-FM
Nature Coast 90. That's UF history, and it's much more proper
and dignified than "Drunk Bitch Friday."
Then again, there was the very intoxicated woman who
clawed and kicked a University Police officer when he tried to
remove her from the event.
But that happened on a Sunday, so it's different.
Unfortunately, this is just another example of the growing
censorship that is threatening the First Amendment rights of
the media. The more accepting our society is toward question-
able content in the media, it seems, the more often the FCC
and a few angry parents are able to shut down speech that
'should be protected.
In a country in which a flash of Janet Jackson's breast is the
most controversial image aired on national TV and an uproar
causes a cartoon butt in the "Family Guy" TV show to be cen-
sored in reruns, it's hard to imagine what is going to offend
this hypersensitive minority section of the public next;
In this case, the offending broadcast is not prohibited by
It doesn't even actually promote drinking.
Anyone who listens to the incoherent ramblings of these
"drunk bitches" and thinks the show glorifies drinking has a
strange idea of what is glamorous.
In recent times, the rest of the world has been having a
good laugh at the prudes in America that have such hang-ups,
about sexual expression.
In most other countries, it's a regular occurrence to have
nudity during daytime TV-even in commercials.
It's hypocritical at best to claim that we have this freedom
of expression but then turn around and say that media figures
such as Lex and Terry are unacceptable because they exploit a
"problem" in our society for the sake of entertainment.

Letter to the Editor
Agriculture workers get no respect
Editor- March 20-26 was National
Ag Week. However, no one would re-
ally know. Nothing regarding Ag Week
was published in the Alligator, though
information was sent. Because we all
must eat and U.S. agriculture provides
the most efficient and safest food supply
in the world, this is very odd to me.
While agriculture creates more than
20 million jobs in the United States, the
approximate 4.2 million Americans in-
volved in production agriculture each
produce enough food to feed an average
of 128 people. These toilers of the land
use the latest technology and face natu-
ral disasters to produce enough food
and fiber for you. They do not receive
a simple "thank you" but just continue
preparing for the next year's crop.
I applaud the College of Agricultural
and Life Sciences, the student organiza-
tions in the college and my fellow broth-
ers of Alpha Gamma Rho for holding
National Ag Week events. One such
happening was a CALS community-
service event, hosted by the Machens at
their residence. At least some people are
proud to celebrate America's livelihood
and the industry with an economic im-
pact in Florida second only to tourism.
Think twice about supporting expansionists
On April 9, 1948, the Jewish terror-
ist groups of the Irgun led by
Menachem Begin, who became
Israeli prime minister and the Stem Gang
- known as Lehi, led by Yitzhak Shamir,
who succeeded Begin as prime minister
- entered the peaceful Arab village of Deir
Yassin on the western edge of Jerusalem and
massacred as many as 250 residents.
With the outbreak of hostilities earlier
that year, the Arab residents of Deir Yassin
had signed an agreement with the neighbor-
ing, largely Jewish village of Giv'at Shaul
promising to be good neighbors, share
information regarding the movement of
strangers in village territory and safeguard
vehicles traveling between villages.
The attackers, operating as an uncon-
trolled rabble rather than a military unit,
fired indiscriminately, blew up houses with
their inhabitants inside, executed men,
women and children by firing and dumped
bodies into wells and the nearby quarry.
There also were reports of rapes and mutila-
tions. The villagers succeeded in wounding
William James 40, and may have
won had the invad-
Martin ers not been saved
Speaking Out by the Palmach, the
elite Jewish force.
The Jewish terrorists loaded some of the
villagers into trucks to be paraded through
the streets of Jerusalem in a victory parade
before executing them. The terrorists invited
journalists into the village to display the
heaped corpses and general chaos.
There were other massacres during the
ethnic cleansing of Palestinians of 1948:
Perhaps 2,000 to 3,000 Palestinians were
massacred. Historian Ilan Pappe believes
the Deir Yassin massacre had implications
well beyond the immediate slaughter. It
was reported over and over on Arab radio
and became propaganda broadcast from
mobile loudspeakers into the Arab areas of
the major cities by Irgun and the Haganah
(the precursor of the Israel Defense Force).
The ethnic cleansing of the indigenous
Palestinian Arabs has not ended, nor has
the War of 1948. Israeli Prime Minister Ariel
Sharon has announced .the creation of 3,500
new Jewish settlements in the West Bank
situated to encircle East Jerusalem, thus cut-
ting it off from Palestinian access. The Israeli
government has announced plans to dump
garbage into the Palestinian-controlled ar-
eas of the West Bank, likely to create stench
and pollute the groundwater. Every hour
from dawn until dusk, the bulldozers are
running, building more of the Separation
Wall, ruled to be in violation of international
law by the International Court of Justice and
designed for the purpose of expanding the
eastern boundary of Israel into Palestinian
lands. The bulldozers are running in order
to create more "for Jews only" highways, in-
accessible to Palestinians, which cut up the.
West Bank into disjointed subsections.
We need to think again about giving
unqualified political support to a state cre-
ated for one ethnicity that was founded on
terrorism and is expanding at the expense of
the indigenous Arab population.

Three UF students make Florida Leader Top 20 list

Used-book sale underway to benefit local public libraries
* THE SALE WILL LAST UNTIL
By JESSICA WULKAN
Alligator Contributing Writer
Hours before it started, people camped
outside the building. After the. doors opened,
it took 15 minutes just to get everyone inside.
Students and lifelong Gainesville residents
alike poured into the Alachua County Library
District Friends of the Library building, 430 N.
Main Street, to kick off the organization's five-
day used-book sale Saturday morning.
"I love the surprises. Any area you're inter-
ested in, it's there," said Belkys Bracho, a UF
graduate student who has attended the book
sale for the past four years. "You always find
what you're looking for."
Last year, the Friends of the Library raised
nearly $270,000, and it has raised close to $2.7
million since its-start 51 years ago. The money
raised supports Alachua County libraries as
well as local literacy organizations.
Volunteers work year-round to organize
sales one in the fall and one in the spring.
"We have about 280 slots to fill just to work
the different shifts at the sale, but we work all
year long sorting and organizing books, music
and magazines" said Joan Bearden, president
of Friends of the Library.
Bearden said that people tend to get rather
enthusiastic about the book sale,. sometimes
even getting a little rowdy.
"We have a policeman who helps keep
everything calm," Bearden said.
UF junior Michelle Rowland said this was
her first time attending the book sale, but she
was able to find some great summer reading
novels, as well as some Father's Day gifts.
"I was able to purchase hundreds of dollars
worth of books for about $20, and they are all
in great condition," Rowland said.

Pizza driver nabbed
By ELIZABETH PRANN
A pizza delivery driver was ar-
rested Saturday for loitering and
stalking after reportedly spying on
allegedly exhibitionist customers,
according to Gainesville Police.

Saturday, several residents of Mount
Vernon Apartments, 2730 SW

from Gumby's Pizza, reports state.
When deliveryman Guillermo
Raul Araujo arrived with the order,
he claimed the woman who an-
swered the door was topless.
After dropping off the food,
Araujo climbed a staircase located
in a separate building across a court-
yard from the apartment to which
he made his delivery, reports state.
Araujo claimed he wanted to
"spy" on the allegedly naked wom-
en, according to reports.
A witness in the apartment
whose stairwell Araujo climbed to
see into the second-story apartment
reportedly caught him as he was
Araujo allegedly tried to conceal
himself at first, then walk slowly
and calmly past the witness.
The witness questioned and
detained Araujo, who tried to push
past him and flee, until officers ar-
rived, according to reports.
Reports state the Pokey Stix crav-
ers did order the food but denied
any nudity was involved.

Charles marries longtime love Camilla in royal fete
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WINDSOR, England (AP) -
Prince Charles and Camilla Parker
Bowles wed in a modest ceremony
Saturday with the blessing of the
queen and the Church of England,
sealing a tangled love affair ignited
at a polo match 30-plus years ago.
Once married, the royals knelt
beneath the towering Gothic arches
of St. .George's Chapel in Windsor
Castle, nervously pledging their
undying love and confessing their
"sins arid wickedness" a phrase
from the Church of England's Book
of Common Prayer as their vows
were blessed by Archbishop of
Canterbury Rowan Williams.
"He did a bit of a dirty job on
Diana," said Tma Quinney, 59, one
of thousands lining the streets of the
royal town. "But the past is the past."
The ceremonies went off flaw-
lessly on a bright, sunny day despite
sinister omens: A change of location
for the civil wedding, vows, unsub-
stantiated reports of the queen's
"fury" that the couple would wed at
all and a one-day postponement for

Elizabeth and her husband,
Prince Philip, stayed away out of
respect for their son's wish that the
ceremony be "low key." But they

Dressed in a tiger-striped pant-
suit, female impersonator Jawana
Jackson drew cheers Friday night as

When Guenther finally let him go, Rushing's
head hit the pavement almost immediately,
which was the probable cause of his death,
The back tire also crushed Rushing's left leg
in the process.
Guenther allegedly fled the scene of the ac-
cident right away, but a witness said he'might
know where Guenther lived, so officers were
sent to that location immediately.
Reports state that troopers found Guenther's
red and silver Dodge Dakota truck parked be-
hind a wooden building at the address pro-
"We are highly suspicious of why he
was there. There may be some things
we do not know."
Florida Highway Patrol spokesman
Burroughs said troopers detained Guenther
until witnesses arrived for identification.
Guenther was arrested at the scene and
charged with driving under the influence as
well as leaving the scene of a traffic accident
resulting in a death.
"We are highly suspicious of why he was
there," Burroughs said. "There may be some
things we do not know."
Reports state that troopers detected a strong
odor of alcohol on Guenther's breath and that
Guenther's clothing was soiled and disheveled.
FHP is awaiting blood-specimen results.
Burroughs added that he does not know if
the other men involved were intoxicated.
"This is just an initial report; as the investiga-
tion unveils we may find new facts," he said.
Troopers reported that Rushing, who lived-
with family members at the same residence,
was pronounced dead on arrival.
Burroughs said Rushing lived with his
mother and possibly a cousin, but neither is
willing to comment at this time, nor were they
witnesses to the occurrence.

Jam features local rock, skating
By SKYLER SMITH
Rock and style brought out an
eclectic crowd of several hundred to
SFCC's track field Friday night.
From middle-aged couples stroll-
ing hand-in-hand to middle-school
boys showing off skateboarding
tricks, all came to the college's first-
ever Rock'n' Style Jam.
While local bands The Know
How, The Worst, Ten 13 Concept
arid headliner Hot Water Music
provided the rock element, several
pro skateboarders and BMX athletes
demonstrated their extreme sports
But Keystone Heights resident
Jeff Greeves, 18, said he and his
friends came to Gainesville to see
Hot Water Music, not the extreme
"I had no idea it was gonna be
here, but it's pretty cool," Greeves
said of the event's style portion,
which featured three 30-minute ex-
hibitions by the athletes.
"I just picked up a skate-
board one day when there
were no waves. It's my life.
I love it."-
Katrina Moore, a 22-year-old
from Tampa visiting friends, said
she was also at the show to hear Hot
"They're a good band," she said.
"I've been following them for a
The low ticket price of $5 drew
many Hot Water Music fans.
The event ran about an hour
behind schedule because a truck
transporting sound equipment for
the event had two flat tires on the
drive to SFCC.
Aside from the delay, there
were no major problems, said
Laura McCormick, SFCC Student
Government president and event
Tricla Coyne Alligator Staff
BMX athlete Dave Brumlow gets the crowd cheering as he shows
off a few tricks during the Rock 'n' Style Jam on Friday at the SFCC
northwest campus track field.
"Everything's been kickin' and
going great," she said.
Backstage, Sergie Ventura, who
recently finished skating and danc-
ing for Madonna's Reinvention
Tour, said this was his first time in
Gainesville, and he loved the energy
of the crowd.
Ventura said he came out for
the event because his friend Phil
Hajal, another pro skateboarder and'
Gainesville sport shop owner, orga-
nized the event and contacted him.
Originally from. Virginia Beach,
Ventura, 29, grew up surfing and
said he took up skateboarding as an

day when there were no waves," he
said. "It's my life. I love it."

Baker: Coaches push
FOOTBALL, from page 1
"I'm not really sure what happened in the past, but since
we've been here, [Baker's] done the things we've a-' 2d,"
Meyer said. "He needs to be a little more consistent and a
little more knowledgeable about the offense. He's had a
great spring. I'm hard-pressed not to say he's not the best
wide-out [on the team]."
Baker said while the previous coaches were 'like fathers
to him, this coaching staff seems to bring out the best in ev-
eryone on the team.
"I woke up this morning and went to McDon-
aids for breakfast, and I saw people tailgat-
ing. It felt like an actual game. It was a big
UF wide receiver
"They make you want to become leaders,;they push you
to want to do to better," Baker said. "That's what's prevent-
ed me before, just wanting to step up and make plays."
The Gators went five-wide most of the afternoon, and
the passing game looked efficient.
Leak completed 14-of-20 passes for 221 yards and four
Freshman quarterback Josh Portis continued to shine.
The 17-year-old completed 20-of-30 passes for 253 yards,
four touchdowns and an interception.,
Caldwell led the Blue team with eight receptions for 149
yards and a touchdown, and Jemalle Cornelius grabbed
four passes for 39 yards and two touchdowns.. Redshirt
freshman Kenneth Tookes also added a score.
For the Orange Team, Jackson added seven receptions
for 87 yards and a touchdown.
The only tailback to put up any significant statistics
was redshirt freshman Markus Manson, who-ran 13 times
for 68 yards. Meyer held Deshawn Wynn as well as center
Mike Degory out of the game to prevent any injuries. Skyler
Thornton, the Blue team starter, managed just one yard on
The rest of the rushing yards went to quarterbacks
Cornelius Ingram and Portis, who totaled 68 and 39 yards
respectively Ingram added a score.
But the story remained the reenergized fan base, eager to
see UF return to the upper-echelon of college football.
"I woke up this morning and went to McDonalds for
breakfast, and I saw people tailgating. It felt like an actual
game," Baker said." It was a big difference."
Strong, Mattison share desire for victory
GATORS, from page 23
That worry has subsided.
Mattison noted that while
McDonald had that problem in 2004,
his spring performances- have reas-
sured the coaching staff that the 283-'
pounder will be a force inside.
"There was one scrimmage where
I stopped the whole thing, and I told
them, look who's running to the foot-
ball here," Mattison said, "a couple of
other guys who were playing said 'I
can't believe it.' I think [McDonald]
answered the challenge." ;

27-10 in the Peach Bowl. For the
record, only about 10,000 more
people went to that game than the
Orange and Blue Game.
But since Miami is always good,
one would think their fans show
up almost as much as the Gators'.
Not so much. UF attracted
50,000 more fans than Miami's
spring game Saturday. An atten-
dance of 8,500 is pathetic. I think

Spring football rolls around ev-
ery year, and it's a non-event
to most. A few dedicated fans
make it out to spring practices and
then maybe 30,000 show up for the
Orange and Blue game.
And then there's this year.
Every spring practice with de-
cent weather was packed and the
Orange and Blue Game attracted
an estimated 58,500 fans.

with Charlie Strong has been nothing but
Strong, defensive coordinator the last two
seasons, now shares duties with Mattison.
The two of us think exactly the same,"
Matfison said. "And when the day is done,
we've got two guys that have played and have
experience, and hopefully, two of us will be a
lot better than one."
Any disagreements between the coaches
are even less likely to occur on the field, be-
cause the staff hammers out the game plan the
week beforehand. It is just a matter of imple-
menting it on game day.
- Mattison said they both share the desire for
the players to win amid the last few years of
letdowns at UF.
"We want these kids to win really bad,"
Mattison said. "That's why [Strong] stayed.
He's got a lot invested in these kids, and there
will never be an issue with us."
