Gators slam Irish, sweep NCAA Regional

The UF baseball team has ac-
complished nearly everything it
set out to do this season.
In November, Jeff Corsaletti
talked about beating Miami. UF
won that series in February.

winning the Southeastern
Conference as early as January.
The Gators won the SEC regu-

Since the first day of fall
practice, every player said they
wanted to reach the College
World Series in Nebraska.
The Gators took one more step
toward that goal after winning
the regional round of the NCAA
tournament, in a 23-3 defeat of
Notre Dame in Sunday's champi-
The Gators' offense swarmed
over the Irish like the giant water
bugs that swarmed McKethan
stadium all weekend, with 12 dif-
ferent players totaling 21 hits.
Brian Leclerc was named the
Regional's Most Outstanding
Player after batting 4-for-5 with
four RBI on Sunday.
"It's our job on offense to put
up some runs," Leclerc said.. "We
got help from everyone, top to
bottom, freshman to seniors,
regulars to bench players."
Leclerc batted 8-for-12 with
nine RBI in the tournament.
"We just wanted to come out
here and play hard," he said. "We
knew that we had Alan Home on
the mound and he's going put up
a lot of zeroes."

consecutive decision by striking

It took them two days to decide, but when
the chips fell in Student Government circles,
the tradition continued.
The SG Executive Committee voted unani-
mously to extend Theta Chi's dominance of
the Student Government Productions chair
by appointing Joey Van de Bogart, who was a
member of the fraternity until Spring 2004.
"He was above and beyond the most quali-
fied," Student Body President Joe Goldberg
said. "The SG Executive Committee made
their decision, and I stand behind their deci-
sion. There was no dissension."

Members of the committee said the deci-

Online voting back on agenda as committee researches
* STUDENT GOVERNMENT HAS
TOYED WITH ALLOWING STUDENTS
TO VOTE REMOTELY FOR YEARS.
By IVETTE MENDEZ
After two failed attempts, online voting is
back on the Student Government agenda.
The Committee to Investigate Online
Voting convened Thursday and Monday to
review the research presented by the 2004
committee, which met last summer.
"It's something, that's a hot-button issue,"
committee Chairman Jared Hernandez said.
Online voting was a prominent issue in last
year's SG election, but Hemandez said he did
not want personal interests affecting the pro-
cess of trying to find a solution to the online
"Leave the politics at the door," he said.
The first meeting was an introduction to
the committee's agenda for the summer.
"It's a tough issue, and it needs to be dealt
with," Hernandez said. "The goal is to make
a recommendation by the end of the Summer
The final report from last year's committee
meetings contained research detailing the ben-
efits of online voting, possible setbacks that
might affect vote accuracy, voting costs and
possibilities for fraud.
"The  committee chose to emphasize
some things over others," Hernandez said.
This year's committee will try to find a so-
lution to the problems presented in last year's
final report, he said.
Two bills to implement online voting
have been presented previously to the Senate
Judiciary Committee but were withdrawn be-
fore reaching the Senate floor because of lack
of practical application and security concerns.
"Ballot integrity, poll accessibility
and participation in the process
are the three most important as-
pects of this issue."

"Ballot integrity, poll accessibility and par-
ticipation in the process are the three most im-
portant aspects of this issue," Hemandez said.
The committee wants to fill the gaps in the
research before presenting a suggestion to the
Senate, Hernandez said.
"We must research not only our current
process and what it costs; but any process that
we might suggest to the Senate," he said.
The committee presented the costs for the
Spring 2005 election: a preliminary, $39,827.65

Hernandez said UF already has taken a step
toward making online voting a possibility.
"I understand that the university has pur-
chased software," he said, adding that the
committee is working on finding the best way
to implement the software.
Monday's meeting paired up committee
members into groups that will research costs,
methods of implementation and vendors for
different types of voting.
The committee will cover legal questions,
paper voting, electronic voting and intranet
and Internet voting possibilities before pre-
senting a suggestion to the Senate.
Electronic voting refers to voting at a booth
on campus, intranet voting would mean bal-
lots could be cast via computers on campus on

one loves gossip that made literacy a trend in the United
How extraordinary that so many took upon themselves to
learn the basics of written language, a skill previously not con-
sidered more important than keeping children on farms, and
could know the news of the world?
With just 26 letters, far fewer than those required by
Japanese, which demands its newspaper audience command
knowledge of some 2,000 characters, English speakers of every
class have created more than a conservative estimate of 3 mil-
lion words, a daily growing number.
With more than a billion speakers worldwide, English is
becoming the business language of the world.
And the kids right here in our state's schools can hardly
make sense of it.
As much as it stings every time someone brakes a plate,
we're not talking about spelling two of our fellow journal-
ists we hold in highest esteem wouldn't pass the first round of
a spelling bee.
But that's why Microsoft Word comes standard with
spell-check, and English is nonetheless comparatively utili-
tarian the Alligator editorial department's other language
of choice is French, which has beautiful-sounding, infinitely
elaborate words when written that ultimately possess all of
three syllables out loud.
Speaking of France, its version of Merriam-Webster is the
somewhat more militant Academie Francaise, the 40-member
body responsible for standardizing the French language and
publishing its official dictionary once every five years.
The Oxford English Dictionary estimates the number of
new entries, including words, expressions and idioms, added
every year at approximately 2,500.
Granted, it's not easy writing English but it sure is fun.
With idioms, metaphors, similes, hyperbole, even those in-
digestion-causing cognates and an average bf three meanings
per word, English possesses a veritable cornucopia of options
to say just what we want. Why merely walk when we can
pussyfoot/sneak/shuffle down a street. What fun!
Encouragingly, sixth-grade FCAT takers came in at 56 per-
cent, which many credit to the phenomenon of a certain series
of books first published when they were starting to learn their
ABCs in kindergarten.
Turn your nose up if you so choose, but grade-school kids
toting around three-pound books is arguably a kind of magic.
And frankly, we'll take what we can get.
Technology, MTV, poetry and pop-culture minutiae all
contribute to language in myriad ways, creating not only new
words but contexts and uses.
Without mastery, staying afloat is wishful thinking at best.
Maybe text-messaging shorthand will win out over words
like you and are. About 200,000 words are in regular use in
today's English, with many long gone and ones yet to be in-
spired and no limit on the turnover rate.
We're not scared of change we just hope the masses
don't lay down their mightier instrument.

Stem-cell research more than morals
scientists have yet to answer millions of Americans' age-
old demand for the ability to grow money on trees, so
sprouting embryonic stem cells like flower buds might
be considered a lofty request.
As such, the current ethical debate over federal funding
for embryonic stem-cell research will not get any easier.
Under current federal policy set by President Bush, only
embryonic stem-cell lines created before Aug. 9, 2001, are
eligible for federally funded research.
Unfortunately, these stem-cell lines are contaminated
with mouse feeder cells, rendering them unusable for hu-
On May 24, the House of Representatives passed a bill
that would lift the restriction and allow scientists to develop
stem-cell lines from unused embryos donated by patients of
fertility clinics. Many of the embryos would otherwise be
Embryonic stem cells have the ability to evolve into any
cell type found in the human body. These undifferentiated
cells possess a greater potential to regenerate damaged tis-
sue, especially in vital organs, than already specialized adult
Scientists believe delving into further embryonic stem-'
cell research is an essential step toward finding cures for
diseases and afflictions such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's
However, this process raises many ethical concerns for
conservatives over the destruction of the embryo during
Rep. Tom DeLay, R-Texas, called it "the dismemberment
of living, distinct human beings for the purposes of medical
On the contrary, classifying a multicellular ball the size of
the dot on an "i" as a "distinct human being" is a far stretch
of the imagination.
The creation of human life could only be achieved by
placing the embryo in a uterus hopped up on fertility drugs.
Aaron Blye Come to think of it, it's a concept simi-
Blye's Eyes lar to Nirvana's hit album "In Utero."
firstname.lastname@example.org Overly exaggerating conserva-
tives make it sound like we live on
"The Island of Dr. Moreau," where
scientists clone four-assed monkeys with the use of federal
funding. That was only a bad movie, not reality.
Recently, President Bush held a news conference on
bioethics, threatening to use his first veto ever. Surrounded
by 21 children adopted as frozen embryos, he stated, "The
children here today remind us that there is no such thing
as a spare embryo... These lives are not raw material to be
exploited, but gifts."
Mr. President, did you just say "exploited?"
Many other conservatives have also classified embryonic
stem-cell research as immoral. Attempting to save the life of
another human being is the zenith of morality.
The Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act passed through
the House 238-194 and is predicted to pass through the
Senate. Fifty of the 238 representatives who voted for the bill
In the May 20-22 CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll, 53 per-
cent of Americans a mandate if there ever was one either
want no restrictions at all on federally funded stem-cell re-
search or want the restrictions reduced.
This is a bipartisan issue supported by the majority of
Americans, yet Piesident Bush threatens to veto the bill.

Mathematical theorem may provide key to political debate
Of hope, Emily Dickinson
wrote, "I've heard it in
the chillest land And on
the strangest Sea Yet, never, in
Extremity, It asked a crumb of Me."
Unfortunately, many feel as
though hope these days is asking
a lot whether Republicans try
to explain their obvious and easy
economic wisdom to Democrats
or Democrats try to cope with four
more years of President Bush.
But I think there is good reason
to look beyond these tiresome quag-
mires and into some other, more
Indeed, political discourse often
decays into a tiring question of abso-
lutes and shades of gray. In forming
our views about people, issues and
people who have issues, we have
to choose whether or not to have
bright line rules, flexible standards
or no opinion at all.
It seems as though most strive for
some middle ground: to be flexible,
yet strict; open-minded, yet firm; in-
telligent or tolerant, yet very liberal.
The problem is basically one
of personal paradox and involves
a logical recrudescence that will
synchronize with our matchless
advances in science and art.
In other words, it must be of
logic, if we are to preserve sanity
The legendary mathematician
Kurt Godel fashioned a fantas-
tic rejoinder to my plea with his
Godel devised an elegant,
straightforward way to show there
are, in Goldstein's words, "provably
unprovable but nonetheless true
propositions in any formal, consis-
tent system that contains arithme-
tic." He proved that "a system rich
enough to contain arithmetic cannot
be both consistent and complete."
Godel went further in his corol-
lary to the theorem: The consistency
of a formal system that contains
arithmetic can't be formally proved
within the system.
Christian We un-
Waugh d e r s t a n d
The Final Frontier from natural
arithmetic is more consistent than
the sun rising and setting.
The problem is proving it. We
would have to go outside the sys-
tem, and then open ourselves to
more steps, ad infinitum, with con-
sistency forever eluding grasp.
Take the sentence "This sentence
is false" as an example. We would
question its consistency, and it re-
Postmodernists used the theorem
to assault the empirical fortresses of
science, while Godel himself re-
mained resolute- that, prove what
it might about formal systems, his
theorem simply revealed more
about the objective world.
It would not, by his view, serve
the moral or quantum relativists.
And so, we can remain faithful to
the idea that our best days will yet be
ahead of us as humanity, unbounded
by rigid consistencies, explores not-
just nebulae, quasars and Social
Security reform, but the possibilities
and "messy meanings" of existence.
Hope will spring eternal.

Reporter did his duty in covering SG
Editor Wait a minute, since when are report-
ers supposed to be opinion columnists?
They say, "We inform, you decide." A re-
porter's job is to inform students about issues,
not give their opinions about them.
Mr. Cohen chose not to voice his opinion.
Why? Because he is doing his job.
Making students aware of student organi-
zation statistics might help balance the scale,
encourage involvement, and as long as they
are qualified, contribute to diversifying lead-
ership in Student Government and creating
As for insinuations, read the article again.
On one side, if the article seems to be "in-
sinuating" something, that may be because
of the. views expressed by people who were
interviewed, not necessarily by the reporter.
On the other side, it included comments by
Student Senate Pro-Temp John Boyles, stating
that, the SG Executive Committee did take
into account Evan Tyroler's prior experience
in ACCENT before choosing him as the next
chair, thus qualifying Tyroler's potential.
These statements were reported explicitly
in the article, whereas the insinuations you
argue are implicit and may be based on the
views of peers, not the publication.

SG, from page 1
learning of Van de Bogart's ap-
"I saw it coming," she said. "UF
is political. I was disappointed be-
cause I worked very hard. I didn't
expect it to go my way. All of the
previous chairs were Theta Chis."
'The last four SGP chairmen hail
from the fraternity The last woman
to serve as SGP chair was Andrea
Kaufman in 1991-1992.
Current SGP Chairman Jeff
Yeatman insists no connection ex-
ists with the fraternity.
"There is no diabolical scheme
behind this," he said.
Goldberg also said Van de
Bogart's appointment had nothing
to do with his Greek affiliation.
"It wasn't brought up," he said.
"Affiliation had no bearing on the
decision that the SG Executive
Committee made. I am not going
to let one agency be bogged down
from the same organization."
Goldberg said the decision was
based on experience.
"Joey had a little more experi-
ence with dealing with finances,"
he said. "I think what really
swayed the committee over was his.
experience with student organiza-
tions. I think that's what put them
over the top."
Van de Bogart said he has a vi-
sion to increase SGP staff diversity
and bring "smaller groups to town
on a regular basis."
He attributes his success to be-
ing "very willing to work."
Senate President Pro Tempore
John Boyles said the decision was
"one of the most difficult votes I've
ever had to make."
Senate President Diane Kassim
said she gave Van de Bogart her
vote to avoid financial problems
that SGP faced in the past.
"My whole goal is for SGP to
have a no-drama year," she said.
"That was my main focus."
In 2002-2003, SGP went 26.27
percent over budget, according to
SG Finance reports. The previous
year, the SG arm went 58.98 percent
over its limit.
"He already knows the alloca-
tions process," she said.
Boyles said he had to call the
candidate's references to give the
committee a broader perspective.
He contacted Gator Growl
Director Robert Carmody, for
whom Van de Bogart worked last
year, and Carmody had "things
above and beyond to say."
"[Karlin] did a lot 'of phone
work," Boyles said. "[Van de Bogart]
had a better overall package."
Karlin previously served on the
Accent Publicity Staff, Gator Growl
Solicitation Staff and as SGP direc-
tor of hospitality.
"She was very one-sided in
what she was doing," Boyles said.
Kassim said SG leaders aren't
avoiding anything by appointing
Van de Bogart as chairman.
. "We all knew what we would be
getting into," she said.
Goldberg said he wants to
weave a multicultural pattern in
the SG web, with TV and radio ad-
vertisements for open positions.
"It needs to be more in your
face,'" he said. "We need to make
sure we are more all out.

Men's golf ties for 18th, misses final NCAA round
For the first time in five years, the
NCAA Golf Championship went on
without UF last weekend.
The Gators missed the cut fol-
lowing Friday's third round, fin-
ishing tied for 18th and five shots
behind the top-15 placement needed
to secure a spot in the final round.
"Needless to say, we had a
poor day [Friday]," Coach Buddy
Alexander said. "The course con-
ditions were very difficult and I
thought that it would play to our
advantage, but obviously they did
not. This is a disappointing end to
a season where we won three times
and assumed some success. This is
certainly very painful for us and I
know that we will be a better team

MEN'S TRACK: We're ready.
At least that's what junior
world-record holder Kerron
Clement believes as the No. 2 UF
track team heads to Sacramento,
Calif., for the 2005 NCAA Outdoor
Championships. After his team fin-
ished second in last year's NCAA
Outdoor Championships, Clement
said he knows that he is ready for
this challenge. Now it's up to his
"We know we're going to per-
form well because we have been
resting," Clement said. "I know that
they're ready because I see the fire in
their eyes at practice. I'm part of the
team and I'm ready. We're confident
that we are going to come home
with a championship."
"Anytime you're a Gator
athletic team and you are
successful, having a target
on your back is expected."
Coach Mike Holloway
UF men's track
Still, any potential championship
team has its obstacles. For the past
two seasons the Gators won the
NCAA East Regional, where ath-
letes qualify for the championship.
However, this year they did what
no UF team ever wants to do. The
Gators came in second to Florida
State by three points.
"Losing right before we go into
the meet is definitely motivation,"
junior Southeastern Conference
high-jump champion Mike Morrison
said. '.It takes you off your high
horse and makes you get refocused.
Losing is not good, but it is good at
refocusing you. We've gotten second
so many times it's about time for us
to win one."
While there will be a tremendous
amount of competition surround-
ing the Gators, head coach Mike
Holloway does not believe that will
be the deciding factor in how UF
"We do more to put pressure on
ourselves," Holloway said. "We ex-
pect excellence from our team. They
,expect it from each other. If you do
what you did to get here, you'll be
fine. Our goal is to be at our best at
the most important meet, and this is
the most important meet."
Although he has only been the
UF head coach for three years,
Holloway knows what is expected
of his team.
"Anytime you're a Gator athletic
team and you are-successful, having
a target on your back is expected,"
Holloway said. "When you're the
Florida football team, whether
you're 11-0 or 0-11, you have a target
on your back. Same thing with track
and field or baseball or any other
sport. Everybody wants to kick our

Players await today's draft; LaPorta breaks record
By TIM CASEY
Several UF players could receive the phone
call of a lifetime today.
The 50-round Major League Baseball
Amateur Draft begins at 12:30 p.m.
SeniorsJeff Corsaletti, Tommy Boss, Connor
Falkenbach and Mike Pete are hoping to con-
tinue their baseball careers. Underclassmen
Alan Home, Darren O'Day, Justin Tordi,
Bryan Ball, Gavin Dickey, and Stephen Barton
are also .eligible to be selected.
. Boss (7-4) has delivered consecutive stand-
out pitching performances. Most recently he
threw a complete game against North Carolina
on Saturday, allowing just three hits.
"I will probably be hanging around my
apartment," Boss said. "Connor will be there,
but that is probably it. I hope I get drafted, but
I'm not even sure if I will get drafted at all.
"We are going to focus on Florida State.
We still have two tough games to win before
we can go to Omaha. If I don't get drafted I'll
probably start looking for a job in sales, maybe
real estate if I get my license."
Home (8-2) is rated' as the 111th prospect
by Baseball America and will most likely leave
UF at the end of the season.
"As long as we win, I think I'm doing well
enough for the draft to take care of itself,"
Home said. "I just try to put that behind me
and focus on winning."
Last year, few people expected third base-
man Jonathan Tucker to leave. If underclass-
men Tordi, Dickey, Ball, O'Day or Barton get
picked early enough, they might be tempted
to sign a professional contract.
Several players have been selected before.
Home was picked No. 27 overall in 2001
and in the 30th round in 2004. Corsaletti was
picked No. 647 (22nd round) in 2004, Tordi
was picked in the 46th round in 2002, and Pete
was picked No. 1,439 (49th round) in 2001.

LAPORTA SETS RECORD: Matt LaPorta hit a
two-run home run in the second inning of
the Gators' 8-3 win over Stetson on Saturday,
giving him 24 home runs this season, a new
"I was just sitting on an off-speed pitch and
got lucky and got the pitch," LaPorta said. "It's
a great feeling, but we still have to go out and
win games and continue to play hard."
The home run came off of Stetson sopho-
more pitcher Chris Ingoglia.
"I have got to tip my hat to Matt LaPorta,"
Ingoglia said. "He hit a great pitch and he hit
it a long way."
The total surpassed the previous.UF record
of 23, set by Brad Wilkerson in both 1997 and
1998, and Ryan Shealy in 2002.
"It couldn't happen to a nicer kid," Shealy
said. "With his power and swing, I knew
he could do it. He's really humble about it
though, it's so good to see."
Shealy is currently playing in the Colorado
Rockies' organization, for the AAA-level
Colorado Springs Sky Sox, batting .313 with 9
home runs and 34 RBI through Sunday.
"You just get a feeling about him, he's go-
ing to be a really good player," Shealy said.

Gators have plenty.of reasons to look past Super Regional matchup
Got your tickets to Omaha
Oh yeah, I forgot. Students don't
care about college baseball.
Well, now is a good time to start.
Because it is, after all, "that time
of year." Just ask anyone on the
Gators, who repeated that cliche
in the postgame press conference
about as many times as they scored
against Notre Dame (23).
In the same press conference, UF
coach Pat McMahon thanked just
about everyone on the planet for a
great weekend. Next weekend has
the potential to be better, though.
I know the College World Series

I'm going to
lan Fisher write it now.
Extra lanhings Call me
email@example.com crazy, but
there are nu-
sons why UF should defeat Florida
State to get to [insert the Promised
Land or eating steaks in Omaha
Let me get the home-field advan-
tage out of the way. That one is obvi-
ous. The games will sell out for
once even though FSU will have
a good turnout.
Another easy one is that the
Gators have won five in a row
against FSU in the postseason. But
let's dig deeper.
On the surface, the Gators fan is
worried since the 'Noles took two of
three from the Gators.
Give the box scores a look and
check out who pitched those games.
Actually, it's not about who pitched.
It's about who didn't.
Since the three games were in
the middle of the week, McMahon
started freshmen Stephen Locke and
Tommy Wynn, while he Seminoles'
regular starters pitched.
Notice the absence of Bryan Ball,
Tommy Boss and Alan Home, who
all happened to win this weekend.
The Seminoles are going to be in
for a bit of an unpleasant surprise.
The Gators have also prepared
a lot better for the postseason.
Sure, FSU's record is 52-18, but the
Seminoles haven't exactly played
the toughest schedule. Or anywhere
close to it.
UF had the sixth hardest sched-
ule this year playing in the nation's
toughest conference. FSU's sched-
ule was ranked 62nd. It probably
doesn't help that the Seminoles took
five games from Hawaii-Hilo, which
has the fewest amount of Division I
wins in the country with a mind-
boggling two. FSU then proceeded
to get swept by Hawaii, a team that
didn't even make the tournament.
Interestingly, North Carolina's
RPI is 18 spots higher than FSU's.
All it took.was one inning for the
Gators to dispose of the Heels.
So UF's regional was tougher
than FSU's. Any way you look at
it, UF has had a tougher road to the
Super Regional, and it will show.
If my reasoning holds up,
McMahon should have thanked the
NCAA during the press conference
for giving his Gators the Seminoles
in the Super Regional.
If not, sorry for jinxing it.
