Dean, VP involved in firing of ex-official
By STEPHEN MAGRUDER
A former Student Government member
still is struggling to piece together the reason
he was fired from his position in December.
Peter Gruskin, former SG Advocacy
Cabinet director, said he was removed from
the SG office for "political reasons," a move
in which UF's administration was complicit.
And he might have records to prove it.
Gruskin was fired, he said, after students
voiced concern about a controversial Israel-
Palestine debate in December hosted in part
by Gruskin's cabinet.
After making a public-records request,
Gruskin obtained a stack of e-mails con-
taining correspondence between Dean of
Students Eugene Zdziarski, former Student
Activities Director Lohse Beeland and for-
mer Student Body Vice President Jennifer
Puckett, among others.
A sizable amount of information con-
trained in the e-mails, which the Alligator has
obtained, was redacted, or "blacked out,"
was deemed an exception

Puckett in that e-mail," Gruskin
said, adding he would like to see the e-mails
without the omissions to better understand
why he was fired.
The response from an unknown sender
to the completely redacted e-mail on Sept.

Peter Gruskin from the Student Advocacy
Cabinet, and we are going to add [redacted].

Stem-cell debate rages

The stem-cell debate continues
in Washington, with the U.S. House
of Representatives passing a bill last
month to allow federal funding for
embryonic research and President
Bush standing firm on his promise
to veto any such bill that crosses
But UF professors say their re-
search would not be affected either
"I feel that it is important to do
some research with -human embry-
onic stem cells, but they are far be-
hind the research that we have done
on adult stem cells," said Edward
Scott, director of UF's Program in
Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative
The only embryonic stem cells
researchers at UF study come from
mice, Scott said.
The focus of regenerative re-
search at UF is on adult stem cells,
with hopes to find cures to diseases
like diabetes, Alzheimer's and
Parkinson's, he said.
Stem cells are unspecialized cells
that can replicate many times over
and become another type of cell
with a specialized function like a
muscle cell or brain cell.
And unlike stem cells, most of
the cells in the human body have
specific functions and do not have
the ability to replicate.
For example, the specific func-
tions of a cell in the heart muscle
would be to work with neighbor-
ing cells to pump blood through

Railroad Days chug through
A three-day festival celebrating
one of Florida's most famous rail-
roads kicks off Friday across the
state, including Gainesville.
The event, Yulee Railroad Days,
commemorates the cross-state rail-
road commissioned by Florida Sen.
David Yulee in the mid-1800s.
Participating towns are located
near or on the railroad's route;
each will feature different activities
to celebrate its heritages and con-
nections with the railroad.
East Gainesville's Cotton Club
will play a prominent role in the
city's own railroad celebration,
said local coordinator Vivian Filer.
The club, which has hosted such
musical legends as James Brown,
B.B. King and Ray Charles, is locat-
ed 'dose to the actual railroad site.
"The beauty is that our building
sits right off the trail, so bikers can
come through and see the venue
and rest," Filer said. "A big part of
this is also celebrating the work of
slaves who built the railroad."
Cotton Club festivities will begin
at 10 a.m. Saturday, and will include
fish-frying, dramatic performances
and live music, Filer said.
Tillie Davis, one of the celebra-
tion's organizers, said that Yulee
Railroad Days was founded eight
years ago by Archer Historical
Society President Phil Denton. .

Mysterious 'Deep Throat' reveals 30-year secret
By DAN ONEY
Alligator Contributing Writer
"Deep Throat" has been unmasked.
Nearly 33 years ago, Washington, D.C., po-
lice discovered five burglars in the headquar-
ters of the Democratic National Committee.
This incident sparked the investigation
of Watergate, a scandal that would make
Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward
and Carl Bernstein famous and their anony-
mous informant, "Deep Throat," an infamous
and mysterious figure.
The identity of "Deep Throat" was a secret
closely guarded by the two journalists for
more -than thirty years, until Tuesday, when-
91-year-old former FBI Deputy Chief Mark
Felt's hidden identity was revealed.
Vanity Fair released an article in its July is-
sue which reported that Felt admitted to family,
"I'm the guy they used to call 'Deep Throat.'"
Felt was the second-ranking official in the
FBI in 1972, making him privy to a plethora
of sensitive information. He then gave the
information to Bernstein and Woodward in
exchange for promises that his identity would
not be revealed until after his death. As a result
of this promise, much debate persisted regard-
ing the identity of "Deep Throat." Many even
doubted his existence.
Dan Smith, an associate professor for the
department of political science said, "Maybe it
does take 30 years for a source to be revealed.
But it does not mean that
the source wasn't speaking
truth to power."
Mike Foley, journalism
lecturer and former executive
editor of The St. Petersburg
Timunes, is a self-proclaimed
critic of anonymous sources.
Foley "If you use anonymous
sources, then the reader
can't judge the value of the information. But as
far as 'Deep Throat' goes, he can be the patron
saint of anonymous sources."
Foley said when the Watergate story broke,
the guidelines governing the use of anony-
mous sources were much more strict.
"Today there are people like Jayson Blair
who just make things up," Foley said.
Jayson Blair, a writer for The New York
Times, used fabricated anonymous sources.
"Felt is the perfect anonymous source,"
Foley said. "He was a high-up insider and
knew what was going on. He ... became a
"He was a help. Maybe now it will give
them [conspiracy theorists] some closure.
They can't play this parlor game anymore."

Students to test skills at first mock NFL combine
* MONDAY'S EVENT IS OPEN
TO ALL STUDENTS.
By RYAN WIERENGA
Alligator Contributing Writer
Students can test their football
skills at the first-ever mock NFL
combine hosted by the Department
of Recreational Sports.
The combine is open to all stu-
dents and will be held Monday from
6 to 9 p.m. at the UVS field, located
between the Southwest Recreation
Center and University Village South.
The NFL combine, which has
become a proving ground for col-
lege football players interested in
becoming professionals, tests play-
ers' physical and mental toughness
in front of their potential coaches.
"With the professional combine-
just finishing, we thought it would
be fun for students to be able to
compare themselves with the pros,"
said Mike Deibler, the strength and
conditioning program assistant.
The mock combine will run some
of the same drills college football
players go through at the NFL
Deibler said the drills will in-
clude the 40-yard dash, the bench
press, the broad-jump, the 20-yard:
shuffle and the three-cone agility
test. Some of these tests, such as the
bench press, will be modified for
personal size and safety reasons.
Position-specific drills will also
be set up to test students' game-time
"We are going to have targets set
up for the quarterback position and
obstacle courses set up for running
backs," Deibler said.
Speed drills for receivers and
additional strength tests for linemen
will also be set up, Deibler said..
Charlie Cookerly, 21, a UF stu-
dent and a fitness supervisor at the
recreational center, said she will be
volunteering at the mock combine.
"It just sounds like fun,"
Cookerly said. "I'm a huge football
fan, and it will be exciting to see
how normal people compare with
Cookerly will be judging and
keeping time at the events.
After checking out the competi-
tion, -Cookerly said she might try a
couple of the events herself.
"Hopefully, students will come
out and meet some new people and
at the same time settle some old
scores with their friends," she said.
Matthew Remm, 20, plans on
attending for some friendly com-
"Me and my friends are always
arguing over who's the best," said
Remm, a UF junior. "I'm going to

Remm said he follows the NFL
combine to keep track of where for-
mer college players may end up.
"Look, I'm a guy," Remm said. "I

thought that I could have put up
Remm was referring specifically
to the less-than-spectacular times

stand-out running back for Ohio
State University and current player
for the Broncos.
Remm and others will have their
chance to prove themselves by run-

Students do not have to do the

about Later Gator's inactivity."

Want to know the best way to make sure our
children grow up to be strong, well-adjusted
It's easy just remove everything that possibly could
harm their self-esteem, make them sad or otherwise prepare
them for the disappointments and setbacks of life.
If they don't know what it's like to lose, maybe they won't
notice when it happens. Right?
This is the same logic we heard not long ago, when we
saw disgruntled moms and dads insist that red-inked as-
signments cause permanent psychological damage to their
intellectually challenged kids.
Well, they may not have much to worry about..
Starting next school year, Palm Beach County educators
will implement their plan to remove all stress and competi-
tive spirit from their students: Get rid of grades.
You remember grades, right? They were the pesky
squiggles on your report card that determined whether your
reward was a raise in allowance, or an appointment with
your daddy's belt.
Or at least they did before someone decided you couldn't
spank your kids, raise your voice to them or let them stop
breast-feeding before they're 15.
According to a Palm Beach Post report, some educators feel
letter grades have become an obsession for students and par-
ents, and "doesn't reflect how a student is really learning."
So, elementary schools in Palm Beach County are ditching
letter grades in favor of a numbering system.
Under the system, which has been in place alongside let-
ter grades until now, a grade of 3 means a student is at or-
above their grade level in a subject, 2 means one grade level
behind and 1 means more than one grade level behind.
Essentially, this means A's, B's and C's all have been-
lumped into the number 3.
People who support this system obviously figure the
whole "Kids never should have to lose at anything" thing
worked so well in T-ball that it
should be applied to academics.
I suppose if they can handle the
shock of getting creamed by 6-foot-
tall 14-year-olds with Fu-Marichu
mustaches once they get to Little
Matt SancheZ League, they can handle anything.
Pure Foppery After all, what possibly could
email@example.com go wrong when students who do A
work and students who do C work
receive the same marks?
Let's see what happens when Danny takes his grades
home to his mother. Danny is a 5th-grader who never has got-
ten anything higher than a C, but he's a quick thinker when it
comes to getting all of the benefits with none of the work.
Danny: "Look, Mom, I got a 3!"
Mom: "You got a what? Is that good?"
Danny: "Yeah, it's good. Billy got a 3, and he's going
straight to Harvard instead of junior high."
Mom: "Wow, that is pretty good. Here's $100."
And surely we can expect those A students to put forth
the same effort .under the new system, even though they
won't be rewarded for it.
Even better, the. numbering system can punish students
who go to schools that aren't up to par.
The system is based on an assessment of each student's
progress compared to a general idea of where a student at
that grade level should be, instead of only their performance
in course work. This means it's possible that students can ace
all of their assignments in a class and still receive a 2 or even
a 1 if the school is weak in that subject.
It'll be OK, though, because they won't be obsessed.with
doing their best anymore.

Tuition shouldn't be wasted on Blue Key
Editor: I'm writing in response to the opinion
article that deals with the kickbacks that those
in SG are giving their organizations (most no-
tably Blue Key).
It is sickening to me that the tuition money
that I have to take loans on is being wasted
like this. Along with the parking garages the
Alligator proposed, it could be used to subsi-
dize student away game expenses.
Making the $50 Alabama ticket cheaper
to students, and/or buying some buses to
drive the students (you .could even paint the
bus blue with Swamp Things down the side
to promote Coach Meyer's new initiative)
should be a priority.
However, I don't guess many in SG have
to worry about travel expenses since they are
paid for through their fraternity/sorority.
Do me a favor and put some random Greek
letters by my name so SG might take my opin-

rendous injustices you allude to.
Legacies in SG are everyone's fault
Editor: Student Body President Joe Goldberg
promised he would not consider legacy posi-
tions in SG, such as ACCENT chairman. Well,
summer has come around, and Gator has con-
tinued this disturbing trend.
To make matters worse, it certainly appears
that student tuition money has been used to
pay off Florida Blue Key, under the guise
of Gator Growl funding, all while the least
amount of students are around to protest;
But I'm not really complaining.
First of all, I did not vote for the Gator Party.
I feel all this just further proves that the Impact
Party or the Progress Party would have con-
tinued the trend of positive change created by
Access. So, sadly, I'm being proven right.
Secondly, we, the student body, deserve it.
What else can be said when such a low per-
centage of students actually bother to vote?
It's been well documented that the Greek par-
ties that want SG power do all sorts of things
to get who they want into office. This year, the
students sat back and let it happen.
There really is nothing we can say for our-
selves. I just hope Gator does not do too much
damage and that the students are learning a

President's singing changes impression
Editor: I would just like to say that I was ex-
tremely impressed at Joe Goldberg's rendition
of Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama"
at Lillian's Music Store on Thursday night.
He went on stage as a guest singer with a
band hailing from Tallahassee (no foul play,
I promise) and received a standing ovation
from a crowded bar.
Originally, I believed Goldberg to be a stiff
and uninspiring, but after witnessing his per-
formance his image did a complete 180 in my
mind. It had the panache of Clinton's saxo-
phone performance and was very good.
So when you think of Joe Goldberg the
Student Body President realize he too is a UF stu-
dent and seems to know how to enjoy himself.

STEM CELL, from page 1
Advocates of embryonic research say because
human embryonic stem cells are formed early on
in human development, they have a greater po-
tential than adult stem cells to grow into ariy cell
or tissue of the body.
Some scientists believe that, because of this
potential, embryonic stem cells could be the key
to discovering ways to treat diseases such as
Alzheimer's or diabetes.
However, because embryos are destroyed
when the cells are extracted, President Bush op-
poses the use of "taxpayer money to promote re-
search that takes life," according to a White House
The president supports the use of adult stem cells,
like those UF researchers study, which can be found in
the brain, bone marrow and blood, including umbili-
cal cord blood, according to the White House report.
But proponents of embryonic stem cell research
disagree with the president's stand.
According to online- information from the
National Institutes of Health, the human embry-
onic stem cells used for research come from eggs
that have been fertilized in a laboratory and have
been willingly donated to science.
Scott said he doubts UPF will do research with
human embryonic stem cells in the future because
they are unpredictable.
"Embryonic stem cells are more like children," he
said. "They tend to behave poorly, and it's hard to get
them to do what you want."
UF Unlike stem cells from embryos,
Research if adult stem cells are used in the
proper way, scientists could get them
to do extraordinary things, he said.

sibility to cure many types of diseases."

Sometimes a painting will tug

make you want to ask the person
in the painting who they are and
maybe what they're thinking.
Malcolm Cooper's paint-

The UF alum knows just how to
add that element of bizarre mys-
tery to a painting. The 28-year-old
painter and former UF fine art
studio major specializes in creat-

cliche head on
When you go see to a movie there are many things
you expect. You expect a great story, memorable
characters, a little action and a little romance.
Well, "Cinderella Man" gave me everything I expected
- a little too much of the expected, to be honest.
The film, opening tomorrow, is an uplifting Depression-
era drama starring Russell Crowe ("Gladiator," "A Beautiful
Mind") as the real-life New Jersey boxer James J. Braddock.
With Renee Zellweger ("Chicago," "Bridget Jones's Diary")
starring as his loyal wife Mae and Paul Giamatti ("Sideways")
as his smart-mouthed manager, the film will no doubt be the
sentimental, good-hearted movie of the summer.
Crowe portrays Braddock convincingly, and we sadly fol-
low the boxer as he falls from success during the Depression,
struggling to cope with a life of poverty for his family's sake.
When Braddock earns a second chance to rise to the top of
the boxing world,
Crowe becomes an
Melissa emotional and com-
Filipkowski manding powerhouse
The Reel Life in and out of the ring.
firstname.lastname@example.org Crowe and
Zellweger have defi-
nite chemistry, but the
dialogue and situations seemed way too rehearsed. I felt like
director Ron Howard meticulously placed the emotional
scenes so -that all I needed was a man walking across the
bottom of the theater with a big, blinking sign that said, "Cry
The three Braddock children bring some of the most heart-
wrenching moments in the movie, since nothing tugs at the
heartstrings more than a cute child in jeopardy. Howard hits
the struggle of the Depression head-on and authentically
portrays the helplessness of Americans during the '30s.
I found the boxing scenes to be very well-shot and cho-
reographed. Howard really brings the feel of the golden age
of boxing to the screen. Rated PG-13, the violent fight scenes
aren't entirely gruesome, but I found myself cringing during
some of the hard blows.
Audiences will applaud the boxer's heart as he fights
for his family's well-being, instead of the glory of winning.
Everyone loves an underdog. Giamatti brings most of the
light-hearted humor to the story and adds to Braddock's
With four components of Oscar-nomination criteria
- Howard as director, Crowe as the hero, Zellweger
as the strong wife and on-the-money cinematography
- "Cinderella Man" will almost certainly be a typical "safe"
nomination for Best Picture. While I don't think "Cinderella
Man" will win, it will be the "Seabiscuit" of the 2003 Oscars,
bringing a light of happiness to the usually twisted and de-
pressing Best Picture category. Overall, the film is a safe bet
and by the end of it will have everyone singing, "Cinderelly,
Cinderelly" what else can you expect?
New theatre spotlights the times
8-track offers free love, Bee Gees, booty shakes
lashing vanity lights, tinsel-string curtains and a
checkered floor with multi-colored lighting all scream
"Get down tonight."
"8-Track, Sounds of the '70s" portrays the disco-decade
in all its glory. The eight-part musical
reminisces about the protests, parties, Af i attii|
free love and overall spirit that inspired
the hit music of that infamously groovy
period in time.
As the song says, "Where do I be-
gin." Between the skyscraping platform
shoes, the promiscuous dance moves or
the crazy excuse me far-out music, it's impossible to
choose a favorite.
All of the greats make their way into this two-hour
time warp. Rick Seeber, creator of the musical, chooses The
Carpenters, Barry Manilow, Marvin Gaye, The Bee Gees
and The Jackson Five, among others, to define the era.
The four-person cast, directed by Lauren Caldwell, has
endless energy. But no one shakes their booty as well as
Rachel Anton. Her vocals are strong and rich, her move-
ments are sharply executed at just the right second, and she
does it all with a constant, contagious smile.
Chad Hudson single-handedly makes the corniness and
cliches of the time unbearably endearing. He is best with his
pet rock in "Alone Again Naturally."
Erin His expressions are genuine and his
Erin movements are well timed.
Chalfant Kelly Atkins has a wide vocal
Curtain Call range, well demonstrated as light and
email@example.com fluffy in "Everything is Beautiful," but
full and deep in "What's Going On."
Her movements are always accurate
but sometimes lack pizzazz.
Armando Acevado is perfect for most of the faster
songs "War," "Takin' it to the Streets" and "The Letter."
However, he is sometimes a little stiff and his expressions
do not mesh well with his. softer songs.
The all-out flashback ends with a burst of energy, and
then the disco era is over. The cast and the songs linger a
while kind of like the decade of peace, love and happi-
ness. It was definitely a worthwhile trip.

Blue Jean reviews the past, hopeful about future
Born in 1873, I1 hung out with celebrities,
watched history in the making, influ-
enced the political tide and was, most
importantly, a fashion icon. I've met you on
a number of occasions; in fact I'm probably
hanging in your closet right now, or better
yet, piled in the middle of the floor.
.The month of May celebrated Blue Jean's
birthday. Your Fashion-a-Go-Go recently sat
down with yours truly to relive some great
moments in history.
FGG: How do you want to go down in
BJ: I think I'll be favored as a talisman
of sorts. Each decade I was reinvented; ... at
different times I represented individualism,
coolness and dissension. After all, I was the
emblem of cowboys, rebels and hippies.
FGG: Let's start with the cowboys.
BJ: That was when I was discovered by
FGG: What a lot of people don't know is
because film glamorized the cowboy, western
dude ranches became popular vacation spots
for wealthy Easterners.
BJ: I was leisurewear for cowboys and
brought back East as a souvenir for the privi-
leged class. However, it turned out that the
same people who thought I was okay for fun
didn't find me suitable for their children.
FGG: It sounds like hypocrisy reared its
BJ: Maybe, but I got "
them back I sought out
their children. The lovely
rebels James Dean and
Marlon (Brando), like a
moth to a flame, they fell in
love with me.
FGG: So, would you say you were incen-
BJ: I prefer the term radical.
FGG: Which was your favorite decade?
BJ: Well, the '60s had the most influence
on modem culture, mottled with a series of
dramatic highs and lows. I was with Rev. Dr.
Martin Luther King Jr. during the civil rights
movement, the leading ladies of the feminist
movement and at the Stonewall Inn in '67, the
catalyst for the gay rights movement.
FGG: Let's not forget Woodstock.
BJ: All evidence to the contrary, you'd
think with a perpetual contact high, I'd have
forgotten. I'll always remember Woodstock.
Altamont was a nightmare. Sex, drugs and
rock 'n' roll baby...
FGG: Tell me about
Christine BJ: What do you want
Steffens to know? I was every-
Fashion a Go-Go where.
firstname.lastname@example.org FGG: Who had the nic-
BJ: Depends. Who got
the most ass, or who had the nicest ass?
FGG: How about both?
BJ: Oh, I don't know, it was between Mick
(Jagger) and Keith (Richards). Especially af-
ter their album cover for "Sticky Fingers," the
one Andy Warhol did. They were neck-and-
neck for awhile; that was womanizing at its
finest. I was torn and frayed.
FGG: Who had the nicest ass?
BJ: Brooke Shields. I hope that doesn't
sound creepy, because she was only 15
at the time. But when she did the ad that
said "Nothing comes between me and my
Calvins" for Calvin Klein, I don't.think there
was a man alive, or woman for that matter,
that didn't find that somewhat intriguing.
FGG: What was your most embarrassing
BJ: I would have to say, to my detriment,
when I was acid-washed. Whoever thought
that was a good idea must have been on
FGG: Good answer. What do you think
about some of these trends from the last ten
BJ: Well, it is always necessary to reinvent
oneself. I credit those who do it with finesse.
Trends usually stem from some kind of state-
ment, which I respect.
FGG: Any predictions for fashion's fu-
BJ: I think Neil Diamond said it best,
"Forever in blue jeans."
Here you have it; your blue jeans saw love,
war, history and the world. So put on yours
and celebrate; let your inner rebel roar.
Good relationships need chemistry to formulate sexual sparks
Chemistry. Attraction. Lust.
Whatever you want to
call it, the sexual spark remains my
main filter for who I want to date
and who I don't. I believe that's true
for most people.
Finding someone who gets you
going can be difficult enough, but
I believe if you'don't place require-
ments on who a person has to be,
everyone will find plenty of datable
So when two people do spark,
getting together shouldn't be that
hard. However, that's just when the
real problems begin.
For me, at least with my recent
track record, timing ruins what oth-
erwise was promising chemistry.
Sometimes it's as rudimentary
as scheduling conflicts. I like hard-
working, goal-oriented guys, which
usually means guys who are very
busy. While I'll adjust my sched-
ule for some quality -alone time, I
get impatient waiting too long for
The second recurring problem in
my recent dating life has been emo-
tional timing. Twice in the last few
months, I've met a guy who was at-
tractive and smart and interested in
me three wonderful qualities. '
Unfortunately before we had
started anything, both decided they
weren't in the right headspace to
date. Neither told me this before-
A friend of mine in her 30s ex-
plained that these problems only
multiply as you get older. At that
age, a whole
slew of prob-
can have kids,
ex-wives, or pets who hate you or
any number of emotional attach-
Considering the disruptions that
stand in the way, prioritizing attrac-
tion over other qualifications seems
like the main problem.
Look for someone who will fit
your schedule, doesn't have too
many emotional hang-ups, and
match your ideas
of hygiene and
Mr. Lube lifestyle. Then
Risqu6 Business starting a rela-
email@example.com tionship should
that's been the
plot of too many romantic com-
edies for anyone to believe it could
actually work in real life. And as
my 30-something friend explained,
the 20-year-olds who make the sen-
sible choice end up as 30-year-olds
Initial struggles aside, I couldn't
bring myself to be in a relationship
with a guy who I didn't have both
personal interest and a sexual spark
We all know people in relation-
ships where the fire has burned out,
but the creature comforts remain.
Some people find these relation-
ships fully satisfying while others
grow fundamentally frustrated.
I'm part of the latter.
Chemistry. Attraction. Lust.
Whatever it is, it has to be there.

The junior birdied three holes in a row from 14-16,
finishing with five birdies on the day.

NCAA BASEBALL REGIONALS
Gators ready to go mad on Hatters
By TIM CASEY
The promised land of Nebraska waits
only six wins from Gainesville.
The sixth-ranked UF baseball team
has talked of breaking the season down
into different stages since January.
After a disappointing loss in Coral
Gables last year in the Super Regional
round of the NCAA Tournament, the
Gators hope to have an opportunity to
finally break through to the next level.
In college baseball, that next level
awaits in Omaha, Neb., in the College
UF coach Pat McMahon and his
four senior players hope to extend their
fourth season for another month.
The Gators will face McMahon's
alma mater, Stetson (35-26), at 8 p.m.
on Friday in the opening game of the
regional tournament for each team. The
winner will face the victor of the Notre
Dame and North Carolina game that
will be played at 4 p.m.
"We're really excited about the op-
portunity to play Stetson," McMahon
said. "[Coach] Pete Dunn does an out-
standing job. They'll be well-schooled
McMahon hopes to see a large fan
turnout to support the team. This
weekend will be the first time the team
will play at home since winning the

LaPorta on verge of UF homer record
* WHILE THE RECORD IS WITHIN REACH, HE WILL
LIKELY HAVE TROUBLE WINNING A BET HE MADE.
By IAN FISHER
Alligator Staff Writer
UF slugger Matt LaPorta needs a big weekend. Scratch
that. A huge weekend.
LaPorta needs seven more home runs. He has been stuck
at 23, the second most in the nation, for five games now.
He's tied for the UF single-season record with former
Gators Ryan Shealy and Brad Wilkerson. But the seven he
needs aren't about the record.
"LaPorta is kind of an outspoken guy," center fielder Jeff
Corsaletti said. "Just joking around in the locker room, he
was like, 'I'm going to hit 30 home runs this year.'
"Nobody believed him. Everybody on the team bet him
that he wouldn't do it, but it was pretty close."
Was pretty close? The season's not over yet. UF is host-
ing Regionals this weekend, and then Super Regionals and a
College World Series berth are possibilities.
All in all, the Gators could have as many as
14 more games.
While LaPorta, the Southeastern
Conference Player of the Year, more than
Likely won't win his bet, there is a much
I better chance he'll break the UF record.
LaPorta All he needs is one more, and he has'at
least two games to do it.
The pressure must be getting to him by now since it has
been five games.
"No, not at all," LaPorta said. "I don't feel any pressure
coming out to the ball park."
OK, OK. No pressure. But what if he doesn't break it?

After Matt LaPorta proudly boast-
ed that he would bash 30 home
runs this season, teammate Jeff
Corsaletti couldn't help but laugh. .
In fact, Corsaletti volunteered to "do-
nate" $500 to LaPorta if he could live up
to his word and shatter- the school record
by seven homers.
It seems the laughter has turned into

say if that occurs,
Corsaletti would not only hand LaPorta
a bag with a dollar sign on it, but he'd
probably give Matt his ATM pin number
and a stack of blank checks.
You see, the 30th home run would
likely occur sometime during the

While a trip to Omaha college
baseball's version of Zion would be

Brian Leclerc and the rest of UF's young-
sters, it would be the ultimate moment

of seniors who, in their four years in
Gainesville, have achieved plenty and
little at the same time.
The final journey for the seniors
begins Friday at McKethan Stadium,
which is ironic because that's the same
place the tumultuous journey, took its
first unexpected .twist.
Three years ago, life couldn't have

He's had so many chances.

are only three people at the
