New policy hits
UAA in pocket
* BANNING ALCOHOL ADS

A university policy prohibit-

Academic bill suddenly reverses
By JAMES VANLANDINGHAM
Alligator Staff Writer
TALLAHASSEE A new report by Florida House
staff states that, in a reversal from earlier analyses, stu-
dents would not be able to sue their professors under the
pending Academic Freedom Bill of Rights sponsored by
Rep. Dennis Baxley of Ocala.
The. report was commissioned by the House
Education Council, which will meet today to take up the
bill under the leadership of chairman Baxley.
"The bill does not create a statutory cause of action
for students or faculty who feel their rights have been
infringed," the report states.
A cause of-action is a set of facts or allegations that
make up the grounds for filing a lawsuit.
.The new report, written by Education Council staff
analyst Hyland Hunt, reflects recent statements by
Baxley that the threat of lawsuits is overblown:
But it appears to contradict another report on the bill
released just three weeks ago by the very same analyst.
In a report for the House Choice and Innovation
Committee, which passed the bill March 22 along party
lines, Hunt wrote the bill may shift responsibility for
Available from Commercial News Providers"
balancing academic freedoms and deciding whether
students' rights have been infringed from university
faculty to the courts.
Moreover, Hunt wrote, students or faculty who feel
their academic freedom rights have been infringed "may
have legal recourse."
Hunt declined Monday to explain the discrepancy, cit-
ing House rules banning staff from speaking to the press.
Towson Fraser, spokesman for House Speaker Allan
Bense, instead tried to explain.
"My understanding is that after the first analysis,
people came to her and talked to her about problems
they had, and she changed the analysis," he said. "As
a bill gets discussed and goes through the process, the
original analysis may need to be updated as new infor-
mation comes to light."
Rep. Eleanor Sobel, D-Hollywood, an opponent of
the bill, said that Baxley's influence as Council chairman
may have caused Hunt to change the report.
"Baxley is chair of the council, so there might have
been conversations," she said. "Baxley has said there's no
cause of action, and she wrote what he wanted to hear."
Baxley could not be reached Monday for comment.

director Jason Freshly said.
Local band Redboy opened the
show with a fusion of grunge rock,
soul and funk, which included a
violin and a gong.
Redboy's cover of "Let's Get it
On," by Marvin Gaye, got people
out of their seats and dancing.
Other songs, such as "In the
Name of the Father," concerning the
war in Iraq, delved deeper.
"We each have strong political
views," Maria Carter said of her
group's five members.
She said most of their songs ei-
ther are about relationships or try to
get a message across.
"What we're mostly trying to
convey is passion," she said.

Carter said Redboy's goal was more

Still no online vote
By STEPHEN MAGRUDER
The online-voting bill will not be
heard in the last Spring meeting of the
Student Senate tonight.
Although all three parties in
March's Student Government elec-
tions pledged to support the initiative,
the issue may not arrive to the Senate
floor until at least the Summer or Fall.
Newly-elected Senate President
Diane Kassim said she will announce
her agenda, which will include plans
to work out an online-voting bill,
at the first Summer Senate meeting
"My hope is to initiate a change
of statutes," Kassim said, referring to
the prohibition of online voting in the
Student Body Statutes.
"I do see some type of online-vot-
ing committee in place before Fall,"
Kassim said plans to resume work
on online voting were held until
Summer to allow the Senate to stabi-
lize after the March elections. "They
seem very eager they're not let-
ting anything slip under their noses,"
Some of the stu-
dents she will look
to for assistance in
writing the bill are
Hoffman and pres-
Kassim Andre Samuels,. as
well as some of the
"I don't want it to get on the
back burner," Kassim said. "I don't
want this to become a partisan is-
sue." Kassim worked on a Summer
2004 online-voting committee with
Hoffman, who co-wrote legislation on
the subject that was withdrawn after
a March Senate Judiciary Committee
Some of the concerns brought up
with Hoffman's bill were the defini-
tion of a polling location since com-
puters would be used to cast ballots,
as well as the possibility of voter fraud
and voter coercion.

Alligator opens its doors
for new victims er, staff
W we've spent a semester here at the Alligator receiv-
ing complaints, criticisms, Darts, angry exhorta-
tions and other forms of reader disapproval.
We spent our precious Friday-night hours last week giv-
ing readers a chance to tell us in person, in excruciating de-
tail, exactly what we've done wrong.
Now, we want you to come and help us out.
This Friday, from noon until 5 p.m., the Alligator will be
holding an open house in its office at 1105 W. University
If you've ever wanted to work at the Alligator (or if you've
ever wanted to work at a newspaper and are willing to take
what you can get), stop by and check things out.
We'll be interviewing for positions in all departments for
the Summer and Fall semesters. We need news reporters,
copy editors, columnists, editorial-board members, photog-
raphers, Avenues staff, sports staff and probably a handful of
other positions we can't think of right now.
Interested students should bring any samples of their
work that they feel are relevant. Resumes certainly wouldn't
hurt your case either.
If you don't have anything to show us, come on in any-
way you never know what might be available.
Even if you hate the Alligator, come give us a shot. We're
not as bad as all of the hype, if you take a moment to give us
Besides, at the end of the day,,the Alligator is a newspaper
made by students, for students. We want to help you gain
experience, and all we ask is that you help us produce the
newspaper we believe students deserve.
We don't discriminate by race, gender, major, societal af-
filiation, fashion sense or any other qualification. If you want
to help us provide the best-quality publication for our read-
ers, then odds are we have a place for you.

administrators and student leaders

The article leaves out a major pit-
fall to this service. This costly system
would be provided for free to the
university. The problem: Advertising

Interfraternity Council and the Board
of College Councils already employ
systems that use SMS technology that,
while on a much smaller scale, do not
use advertisements to support them-
selves. Additionally, USF recently im-
plemented an advertising-supported
SMS system. How are these groups
using SMS? Has it been effective? We
don't know as of the April 7 meeting,
no one had bothered to ask. Before any
UF entity signs a contract with Mobile

would urge the UF administration and

the best service for the students at UF.

Letters to the Editor
Congressional filibusters lead to democratic deals
Editor: Matt Sanchez's football analogy from his
Monday column isn't a good example of the impact of
the filibuster. The filibuster's purpose is to give the mi-
nority a voice in debate. While one senator orates into the
night, others are working to get things done. That's how
democracy works. And that's not retarded.
Non-moralmongers should seek out other options
I noticed some errors in Craig Singleton's" Monday
column. Gas prices are nowhere near the highest they've
ever been, when adjusted for inflation. Call me when
prices are more than $4. As to his comments on the Terri
Schiavo case: If a husband who has a live-in girlfriend
and two kids allows his wife to starve to death, and the
government does not get involved, I would be scared.
I'm sorry you don't enjoy living in a country with morals
and where the people look out for each other. If you have
a problem, move to Amsterdam. The weather is cooler,
death on demand is legal and I'm sure you'll fit right in.

Local businesses work to diminish drunken driving
* FROM TOWING COMPANIES TO "CAB CARDS,"
PARTIERS HAVE LOTS OF OPTIONS.
By MEGAN V. WINSLOW
While new legislative measures seeking to curb hit-and-
runs by drunk drivers make their way through the Florida
Senate, some local businesses are already working to develop
solutions to keep roads safe.
After a few drinks, UF student Natalia Hoogesteijn realized
she was no longer enjoying herself at a party one night and
left to get her car. Although parked only a few blocks from the
house, by the time Hoogesteijn stumbled over to it, she knew
she was too drunk to drive.
Though she returned to the party and slept on a sofa, many
students either don't have that chance or would rather get home.
Aside from the Later Gator bus service and doling out cash
for a cab, students and Gainesville residents have other options
to protect both themselves and other drivers.
For the past six years, AAAAuto Club South and Budweiser
have partnered to offer free towing for anyone who feels too
inebriated to drive home safely by calling 1-800-AAA-HELP.
The "Tow to Go" program is conducted statewide during all
major holidays or events, such as the Super Bowl.
The next date on the "Tow to Go" schedule is Cinco de Mayo,
said Mandy Llanes, Southeast region manager of Consumer
Awareness & Education, Anheuser-Busch Companies.

Llanes said people continually contact him to express their
gratitude for the partnership's services.
"This is the most gratifying business that I've ever been
in because you do see that you make a difference," Llanes
Several area towing companies, including Watson's
Towing, Superior Towing and Freedom Towing, also offer
discounted fees for people concerned with driving home
"We treat it as a situation where we can get the driver off
the streets," said Gene Watson, owner of Watson's Towing.
For the most part, these offers have not been taken advan-
tage of, and like many owners, Craig Cauthen of Freedom
Towing can count the number of patrons on one hand.
Students are either using taxis or leaving their vehicles
behind and having a friend pick them up, he said.
To make the former a more viable option, UF alumni Chet
and Kris Justice invented the Cabeze Card.
Cabeze allows buyers to place $25, $50 or $100 on a re-
chargeable card. Fare amounts as well as optional tips are
deducted with a swipe, like a credit card.
Chet Justice said the idea for the company came in 2002
when he and his wife were celebrating her birthday. Kris
'Justice was pregnant with the couple's first child at the time,
and they started talking about what they would do to keep
him from driving drunk when he got older.
Justice suggested supplying money for a cab.
"She started joking 'Yeah, the next round's on us'
and we thought it was interesting: What if you could give
money to someone just for a taxi that they couldn't use for

Living investments replace dorms for some students
* PARENTS OFTEN BUY
CONDOS FOR THEIR KIDS
INSTEAD OF FOOTING RENT.
By ADRIENNE BROWNE
Alligator Contributing Writer
The end of Spring represents a
time of change for students. Seniors
move out, freshmen wander in and
nearly everyone else is trying to fig-
ure out which apartment complex
offers the best perks.
Some incoming freshmen opt
out of this stress-inducing search.
-Instead, parents invest in property
to be sold. upon graduation.
Tracey Kelley, a realtor at
Bosshardt Realty Services, said she
is approached by at least 40 families
each Fall wanting to buy property in
Gainesville for their children.
"They're all starting to real-
ize that real estate is a much safer
investment, and they're utilizing
that," Kelley said.
Kelley said most parents spend
$125,000 on average for a condomin-
ium. Families typically buy property
on Southwest 34th Street, Southwest
20th Avenue or within walking dis-
tance from campus, she said.
"It's very affordable if you have
a roommate," Kelley said, adding
that the condos appreciate about 13
percent on average each year.
Sharon Blansett, assistant di-
rector of housing at UF, said the
demand for dorm space hasn't
Costs of living on campus range
from $1,142 to $2,760 per semester,
Blansett said. That includes utilities,
cable TV, local phone and Internet.
"Our goal has always been for
the supply of on-campus spaces tp
meet the demand," she said.
Student 6,700 new students will
Life attend UF in the Fall.
More than two-thirds,
or 5,208 of 7,551 spaces on campus
were reserved for freshmen.
Jennifer Taylor, 19, lives in a
condo off campus her parents
bought in 1999 when her sister was
attending UF. Taylor said she would
recommend buying property in
Gainesville to other students.
"The profits from the condo
have grown over the years, so
the condo is worth a lot more
now than it was when my parents
bought it," Taylor said. "It worked
out as a really good investment
for them in the long run to actu-
ally make money on the condo."
Blansett said she thinks it is
important for students to live on
campus during their first year at UF
so they don't feel isolated.
"When you're right out of high
school, I think you need a little bit
more help connecting to the univer-
sity," Blansett said.
Taylor said living off campus
during freshman year isn't easy for.
everyone, but it is something she
was able to overcome.
Yi Chiang, 18, is coming to UF
in the Fall from Miami. Although
he will probably live on campus his
first year, Chiang's parents plan to
buy property in Gainesville for him
to live in sophomore year.
Chiang's parents are also consid-
ering buying property to rent out to
other students as well. .
"It's better than the stock mar-
ket," Chiang said. "You're never go-
ing to lose money off of it. It's only
going to go up, so why not?"
Chiang said about five of his
friends are also looking at property
in Gainesville to purchase.
Kelley said buying property
provides a tax shelter because ex-
penses can be written off as costs
of management. The interest rates
are also low right now, she said.
Besides financial benefits, Kelley
said students who live in property
owned by their parents have more
independence and learn responsi-
bility because they have to take care
of the place where they live.
"There's absolutely zero down-
side," Kelley said. "You can't lose."

Rim theft caught
By ELIZABETH PRANN
A Gainesville man jumped a bandwagon by trying to steal
tire rims Monday.
Harry James Garner Jr., of 4312 SE Fourth Ave., was caught
in the act of removing the second wheel of a vehicle parked
at Dave Mays Automotive, 2906 NE 19th Drivre, when a .
Gainesville Police officer questioned his peculiar behavior, a
GPD arrest report states.
"The theft of rims in Gainesville is becoming more and more
popular," GPD spokesman Keith Kameg said.
The reports said Garner was unscrewing the lug nuts from a
tire on a light blue 20-year-old Oldsmobile Cutlass.
When authorities asked Garner what he was doing, he said
he had permission from the owner to take the rims and wheels
off the vehicle, reports state.
However, GPD officer Sean Dhillon said he contacted the
owner of the car, who said he never gave permission to remove
Kameg said the rims were not very expensive, estimating
the cost to be less than $300.
When Dhillon arrested Garner, he found a pair of black brass
knuckles in his front right pocket, according to the report.
The report states that Garner said he was using the weapon
as "just a belt buckle."
Kameg said his agency does not seebrass knuckles as often
as in previous years, which he said he is thankful for because
they are a "very effective weapon."
Dhillon also located the missing rim in the trunk of Garner's
girlfriend's Daewoo Nubina.
Garner was arrested on charges of theft and carrying a con-
cealed weapon and taken to the Alachua County Jail about 3-

Students may, or may not, be able to sue under freedom bill, analyst concludes
BAXLEY, from page 1
In contrast to Hunt's new report, a Senate staff analysis of
an identical bill in the Senate Education Committee warned
last week that "the bill appears to create a cause of action for
students to litigate against the public postsecondary education
in which they are enrolled."
Moreover, the report said some provisions of the bill "invite
student complaints" against their professors or universities.
Senate committee analyst Lowell Matthews, author of the
document, said Monday he stood by his report.
Robert Jerry, dean of UF's Levin College of Law, said the
legislation does not provide an expressed cause of action, a'
paragraph expressly stating a plaintiff's right to sue.
"But the question is whether there's an implied cause of ac-
tion," Jerry said.
The Florida Supreme Court has ruled that the intent of the
Legislature should be the primary factor considered by courts
on whether a cause of action exists.
But a cause of action may be "judicially inferred," and a
debate over a cause of action can be enough for plaintiffs to file
suit and let the courts decide, Jerry said.
"Certainly the possibility that this bill would create a cause
of action couldn't be disregarded," he said. "All you need to do
is file a complaint, and the worst that can happen is the court
Rep. Dan Gelber, D-Miami Beach, said the bill on its face cre-
ates enforceable rights that must also create a cause of action.
"It says in the bill, 'a student has a right to expect...,"' he
said. "Rights aren't vindicated by themselves, and they're not
spontaneously enforced. If you create these rights in the uni-
versity system, they're going to be enforced by somebody."
Gelber, a trained attorney who sits on the Choice and
Innovation Committee, said it was clear that lawsuits and the
courts would fill that role. He cited a report by the Department
of Education recommending $4.2 million be spent to hire a new
lawyer for each of Florida's universities and community col-
leges if the bill was passed.
"I can't believe the legislature is going to
seriously consider the bill," Gelber said. "If
it wasn't so dangerous, it would be wacky"
The bill bans professors from introducing
... ,r. "controversial matter" into the classroom or
/ introducing coursework serving "no legiti-
mate pedagogical purpose." -
The bill also mandates making students
Gelber aware of all "serious scholarly viewpoints."
The bill defines neither "controversial
matter" nor "serious scholarly viewpoints."
If the Education Council passes the bill, it could go to the
House floor. An identical bill is pending before the Senate
"This is a marketplace of ideas, and sometimes even the
nuttiest ideas can attract attention," Gelber said. "Sometimes
the nuttiest ideas attract the most attention."

probation for hazing
* THE SENTENCE WILL LAST
By NEIL HUGHES
Kappa Alpha Fraternity was
placed on probation for hazing
charges Monday evening.
Fraternity President Daniel
Boda was apologetic to the Greek
Judicial Board, which made the
ruling, for Kappa Alpha broth-
ers' and pledges' actions March
18, when members stole a num-
ber of signs from Gainesville
"These actions not only af-
fect our status, but it also af-
fects the lives of everyone at
the University of Florida," Boda
The fraternity will remain on
probation for two years, until
Three Kappa Alpha pledges
were found with several large
signs in the back of a gray
pickup truck on Fraternity Row,
according to a report from the.
University Police Department.
"They had been instructed
by the fraternity to go and steal
signs for the hurricane party"
on the evening of March 18, the
Boda, who said he was not
present the night of the incident,
admitted that fraternity brothers
did order the pledges to steal the
"The brothers involved were
younger guys ... and they un-
dermined my authority and took
matters into their own hands,"
Eleven signs were found at the
house, totaling $545 in damages,
according to the report. The signs
were to be decorations for the fra-
ternity's hurricane-themed party,
which took place March 19.
As a result of the actions,
apologies were issued to the
businesses affected and the
guilty members were punished
within the fraternity, Boda said.
The brothers involved are sus-
pended from all chapter activities
for three months, will participate
in a service project at Holy Trinity
Episcopal Church next Fall and,
along with the guilty pledges,
will serve 30 community-service
hours each at the Reichert House,
a Gainesville after-school pro-
gram for troubled teens.
"The brothers involved
were younger guys ...
and they undermined my
authority and took matters
into their own hands."

ishment, 90 percent of Kappa

Faculty add to nature encyclopedia
By SKYLER SMITH
The tempestuous relationships between man, his en-
vironment and his religious beliefs have been compacted
and catalogued by a UF professor.
Religion associate professor Bron Taylor spent seven
years working on The Encyclopedia of Religion and
Nature, and the product will be released next month.
In over 1,000 entries spanning two volumes and
including 520 contributors, Taylor sought to divine the
connections between human beliefs and their subsequent
effect on the environment, or vice versa.
"It is accessible, it's not jargon-filled and it gets you
quickly to the main features," he said. "Very few people
had looked at the possible impact of natural environ-
ments on human consciousness in general and religion
Taylor cited the religious context different cultures have
put on volcanoes and eruptions as an link, or the ancient
Temple at Delphi and whether the gases from the cave
were responsible for the seer's trance.
But he said most of his research fo-
cused on more mainstream faiths.
"We spend a good deal of time in
what are considered the world's larg-
est religions," Taylor said.
However, the encyclopedia does
address less common religions, both
ancient pagan forms and recent move-
Taylor ments, such as the nature-revering
11th Commandment Fellowship.
There are even entries on subjects that may not be

Gators shake off aches, pains of gymnastics world
There was a snap, a twist and an intense
pained look as a body fell to the ground.
For the No. 7 UF gymnastics team, the
sight-Was one that the Gators have witnessed
many more times than they would have liked
throughout the course of the season.
But in a sport that is well known for its
high rate of injury, playing in pain is part of
"Injuries are a part of gymnastics," co-cap-
tain Samantha Lutz said. "We deal with them
all tl~ time, so we have confidence in our
teammates, and we put the work and train-
ing in all year long, so right now we're kind of
relying on that."
Lutz is just one of sev-
eral members of UF's team
who have logged countless
hours in the training room
during the past weeks and
months. She hyperextend-
ed her back during a floor-
exercise routine in practice
Lutz two weeks ago.
"I've been doing a lot of treatment, a lot of
therapy, stretching, rehab, everything," Lutz
said. "It's still sore, but it's getting better."
In addition to Lutz, fellow captain Erinn
Dooley has spent the entire season battling a
stress fracture in her left foot, Orley Szmuch
re-injured the ankle that she spent the entire
off-season rehabilitating, and Tracey Rai has
had to deal with shin splints. Nicola Willis
competed in just two exhibition performances
before undergoing season-ending surgery to
repair a torn rotator cuff that had plagued her
since before the season began, and Savannah
Evans sprained her ankle during her floor-
exercise routine during the NCAA Regional
Fortunately'for the Gators and Southeast
Region Coach of the Year Rhonda Faehn, the
majority of those injuries are just like Lutz's
back: getting better.
And with the NCAA championships set to
begin Thursday, the Gators could not be heal-
ing at a better time.
"We're definitely doing much better,"
Faehn said. "[Evans] is ready to go. She'll
be competing floor and vault for us, which
we're really happy about. And then [Szmuch]
will be doing- floor for us, so she'll be doing
all-around, so we're really excited about that.
And [Lutz] should be back in on beam, which
is a big plus."
MORE FROM MOREHEAD: Two days -after
what may have been the biggest moment of
her life, Tashia Morehead was still smiling,
The UF women's basketball team's most
valuable player this season was selected by
the Washington Mystics in the third round of
the WNBA Draft on Saturday.
In comments Monday, the 5-foot-11 for-
ward says she has been "overwhelmed" by
the developments of the past few days.
"You can't say any words about it,"
Morehead said. "It's a great feeling to know
that the hard work and determination that you
had, and the sacrifices I have taken in basket-
ball, that somebody recognizes my talent."
At home in her native Panama City on
Saturday, Morehead's grandmother was sup-
posed to order NBATV, which carried the
draft. After that didn't work out, fellow senior
Tamia Williams broke the news by sending a
text message congratulating Morehead.
Morehead was humble despite the selec-
tion, saying, "My family was more excited
than I was." While family members were
"jumping off the walls," she knows there is
more work to be done.
"I have to remind myself, in the back of my
mind," she said. "OK, I got drafted, but now I
got my foot in the door. It's up to me to make

A Higher Power?
More than ever,
By MICHAEL MAURINO
Each weekend, you attend. You and
thousands of other people pick out similar
clothes and don't think twice about it. When
you enter the doors and cross into that open
space, you suddenly feel a sense of pride.
You chant and speak in phrases that you
only remember for this once-a-week event.
Around you, there may be different races or
different political philosophies, but for these
moments, you are all one.
For some, this describes their place of
worship. For others, it is a stadium. But
many of us hear this and realize it is an ac-
curate description of both.
The two grand things that unite
Americans are sports and religion. Through
the course of time, these two parts of
American culture have come closer together,
for better or worse.
Does God Care?
In recent years, it's been hard to watch a
sporting event without religion being seen.
There are the running backs who drop to
a knee in the end zone, thanking God for a
touchdown. Even boxers, fresh off of knock-
ing someone out cold, thanks the Lord for
helping them to a win.
But does God care who wins or loses?
The Rev. Tim Lozier is an associate pastor
at St. Augustine Catholic Church. As some-
one who attends about 100 UF athletic events
each year, Lozier sees the good traits that a
sport teaches us.
As for God caring if one team wins or
loses, Lozier has his doubts.
"I think God cares that we do our best,
that we do everything for God's glory," he
said. "And God gave us -talents, and we
should develop those talents."
This concept is not exclusive to Catholics
or Christians. Rabbi Jonathan Siger at UF's
Hillel says people of the Jewish faith have the
"The Jewish approach to God is that God
gives individuals strength to excel in what-
ever they do," Siger said. "But it's not a very
Jewish view of God to think that He's really
concerned with which team is going to win."
Some may believe praying for a victory
would help. But Lozier believes "we're all
God's children," and people aren't necessar-
ily praying for a particular team's victory.
"You're praying for the other team to
lose," he said. "Why is that any better an out-
come in the grand scheme of things?"
Faith on the Field
Probably the first athlete to merge reli-
gion with sports was Muhammad Ali. No
athlete before or since has made his faith
such a large part of his public persona.
At the time of his conversion to Islam in
1964, Ali was the world heavyweight cham-
pion. Yet as Ali has become one of the most
beloved men of all time, his religion is often

Siger says there is nothing wrong with a
coach's spirituality, but having a Christian-
oriented prayer can divide a team.
"The issue is more of sensitivity," he said.
"In that, if you're not of that particular faith
or denomination, then it feels exclusive."
The rabbi said he'd prefer prayer over no
prayer, but a way to work around the prob-
lem or exclusion would be to cite scripture
that can apply to all faiths.
Coaches seem to be aware of tl*hfact
that their beliefs can bother some players.
Instead, they say things like 'I believe things
happen for a reason' in response to a recent
event that has shaken the team. But even this
can become an issue.
"I don't know if things always happen
for a reason," said Lozier. "To say that God
always directly willed that adversity is very
problematic, if you start thinking that God
willed you to be a paraplegic to make you
a better person. But could God use that
paraplegia to make you a better person?
Sports and Religion Hand-in-hand
Even with the criticism of religion in
today's society, the three religious experts
agree that faith is an important part of an
athlete's life. Does faith make a difference
on the playing field? Only God knows.
With Christianity and Islam spreading
through the Southern Hemisphere, and as
Jewish leaders continue to seek new ways
of outreach and revitalization, religion and
faith will only become a bigger part of our
society. And as more children are introduced
to sports, it will only grow.
However, this merger of athletics and
faith may have already occurred. -
"What is so great about athletics in gen-
eral or sports is that, in many ways, it does
the same work that religions do. I. think
that's why there is a certain compatibility,"
said Siger. "The fact of the matter is the hard
work and the teamwork and the constant
struggle for self-improvement is very simi-
lar to what most religious traditions teach.
So they're not mutually exclusive by any
stretch of the imagination."

Tallahassee native hungers for revenge at FSU
* DICKEY EXPECTS TO SEE A
LOT OF FAMILIAR FACES.
By TIM CASEY
A first-place position in the.
Southeastern Conference and. a
promotion in the polls are enough
to make any baseball player relaxed
That was the mood of Coach Pat
McMahon's No. 5 Gators team as
it practiced for tonight's game in
Tallahassee against Florida State.
None of the players seemed to
remember a stunning last-inning
loss to Alabama on Sunday.
"We discussed what happened
[Sunday], how we can improve
and get better in completing
games and doing the best we can,"
McMahon said. "We did not give
away Sunday's game. They hit to
win the game. There's a big, big
The Gators led 6-3 in the top of
the ninth inning on Sunday, but
lost 9-6 after winning the first two
games of the series.
"We don't like the outcome. The
outcome is unacceptable, but our
players' effort and everything that
we did was exactly what we want
to do," McMahon said.

said. "Tommy Wynn will compete,

The game will be broadcast on
SUN Sports, pitting the in-state
rivals against each other for the
second time in three weeks.
"I always appreciate the public-
ity of television because it gives
all of our Gators fans an oppor-
tunity to watch our team play,"
McMahon said. "We play with

Machen: No more tackle football, cheering, orange, blue or Gators
How solemn and beautiful is the
thought, that the earliest pioneer
of civilization, the van-leader of
civilization, is never the steamboat, never
the railroad, never the newspaper, never the
Sabbath-school, never the missionary but
always whiskey!" Mark Twain.
So UF President Bernie Machen has waged
a war against alcohol. Apparently, it's not
enough that UF is quickly becoming one of
the top public universities in the nation, but
now Machen wants to suck all the fun out of
a university that's fun level seems to diminish
by the year.
Mr. President, the government tried
Prohibition in the 1920s, and it didn't work.
If adults over the age of 21 want to drink
themselves into a stupor, then that is their pre-
rogative. In fact, let them flunk out of school
because it's a good way to weed out the un-
desirables UF is extremely overpopulated
Machen already used (or abused) his pow-
ers to remove a radio program supposedly
"promoting" alcohol use, and soon you'll no
longer see alcohol ads during many UF tele-
vised sports events.
But why stop with alcohol? If Machen gets
his way, here are some possible changes to
look for in the near future:
1. Tackle Football Outlawed There's no,
reason student-athletes should be subjected
to such violent hits, so beginning in 2005 UF
will play a much tamer flag football schedule
against many of UF's top intramural teams.
Machen also requests the team become co-ed
and wear pink jerseys.
2. Cheering Replaced with Silent Prayer
- All this loud cheering and jeering at foot-
ball games is really inappropriate. It distracts
the coaches and players and ultimately affects
the outcome of the game. Therefore, loud
outbursts of sound will
result in 'immediate
removal from the stadi-
um. Instead, everyone is
to pray silently because
Divine Providence will
truly guide the Gators
3. Swamp Restaurant
to Become a Jail It's a
huge burden for the
police to drive all the drunken boys and girls
downtown, so the Swamp Restaurant on
University Avenue will become a jail, effec-
tive this summer. If Machen's plan to abolish
lawyers becomes a reality, these degenerates
could be convicted and transferred from jail to
a more permanent prison cell in 24 hours.
4. Orange and Blue Chant Replaced with
"Color" When one side of the stadium or
arena chants orange and the other blue, it's
promoting inequality. It's not fair to pin one
color against the other, so from now on all the
fans at once will shout: "Color."
5. Gators Removed Anyone that thinks
the Gators is an appropriate nickname for a
university must be insane. The alligator is a
violent reptile that will kill a man if given the
chance. A new name is still being decided, but
a source told me that Nike has already been
contracted to create a Florida Ponies jersey.
It's not too late we still have a chance to
fight such injustices. Call President Machen's
office and tell him you have a right to get oblit-
erated each and every night of the week. ,
Some of our nation's Founding Fathers
were infamous alcoholics, and I'll leave you
with this quotation from Benjamin Franklin:
"Beer is living proof-that God loves us and
wants us to be happy."
