UF falls in CWS championship to Longhorns

OMAHA, Neb., After the tears
have dried and the pine tar is
washed out of their uniforms, the
UF baseball players can look back at
the season they had and smile.
The Gators were swept by Texas
in the championship series of the
College World Series, losing 6-2

orange-clad fans. Texas pitchers

second consecutive day, striking

UF (48-23) was the team known
for hitting home runs during the
season, but it was the Longhorns
that hit the long balls to win their
sixth national championship.
Texas (56-16) scored four runs in
the bottom of the sixth inning on a
pair of home runs to increase their
lead to 6-0.
Texas third baseman David
Maroul hit a three-run home run
off of UF relief pitcher Connor
Falkenbach after Chance Wheeless
had hit a solo home run off of UF
starter Bryan Ball.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT


Growl proposal



strikes back


Recycle


Published by Campus Communications, Inc. of Gamesville, Florida
We inform. You Decide. TUESDAY, JUNE 28, 2005


By DAVID COHEN
Alligator Writer
dcohen@alligator.org

Student Government is
growling back at UF administra-
tors with a new proposal to fund
Gator Growl, the university's
Homecoming pep rally.
Student Senators agreed on
an authorization in a forum at
the end of Summer A to allot
$140,000 of SG reserves approved
by Vice President for Student
Stn-,,- .Patricia Telles-lIrvin' for
Growl.
The retooled plan will provide
a $13 subsidy for 15,000 student
tickets and will be heard today
at the first Student Senate meet-
ing of Summer B, at 7 p.m. in the
Reitz Union.
The authorization will only
need one vote to pass.
SG officials said the dis-
counted tickets would be sold
for $5, but it was uncertain when
the tickets would be available for
purchase.
"If they are going to be able
to ensure that the first 15,000 will
be $5, then I am willing to move
and get the tickets on sale ASAP,"
Gator Growl Producer Robert
Carmody said at the forum. "If
SG can pull it off, then I think
that's great."
However, Carmody said
Senate President Diane Kassim
and Budget Committee
Chairwoman Jackie Pace told
him "whatever they (the high-
ranking senators) bring will go
through."
Kassim'said she does not re-
member saying that.
I however, Associate Director
of Student Activities Chris Cupoli
said final decisions should be
coming soon.
"We needed to really wait,"
he said. "They're able to move
forward in the planning process.
Hopefully, we get some resolu-
tion tomorrow in Senate."
At the meeting, SG officials
decided to push for $55,000


more in student money after
Vice President for Student Affairs
Patricia Telles-Irvin cut $200,000
out of the original Senate bill to
fund Growl.
SG officials said they were not
sure where the extra funds would
come from.
Kassim said Student
Government Productions
Chairman Joey Van de Bogart
confirmed that SGP would sub-
sidize up to 4,300 tickets pending
a re-evaluation of the organiza-
tion's budget after Growl.
SGP's co-sponsorships and
concerts will not suffer from the
move because SGP would be
reimbursed via reserves, Kassim
said.
"I think we've finally got
something that could benefit
students the
most," she
said. "Student
"organizations
will not suffer
in any way."
Telles-Irvin
notified SG
Kassim executives
about reject-
ing the first Gator Growl bill May
24, the night of its second Senate
reading.
On June 10, she vetoed
$200,000 of the original bill ap-
proved by the Senate, which
granted $340,000 for up to 24,000
fully subsidized student tickets to
the Florida Blue Key-run rally.
In a memorandum announc-
ing the veto, Telles-Irvin recom-
mended SG sponsorship in the
form of a $140,000 ticket subsidy
from reserves and suggested an
SG commercial air during the
show.
She also announced a glitch in
the PeopleSoft financial software
that "found" $78,000 in the Growl
account held by UF.
SG officials believed Gator
Growl's production startup fund
totaled only $25,000, when in re-
ality it was $103,000.

Coke questions UF-Pepsi deal


By MIKE GIMIGNANI
Alligator Staff Writer
mgimignani@alligator.org

Pepsi may be the choice of a new UPF administration,
but a possible oversight by the university could leave Coke
with a few tricks up its sleeve.
Coca-Cola officials said the UF team working with the
two major soft-drink companies in negotiating an exclu-
sive campus sponsorship contract did not include the UF
& Shands Jacksonville hospital. The omission allegedly
caused Coke to underbid in its attempt to extend its 40-year
relationship with the university.
"It was always our understanding not to include Shands
at Jacksonville," said Michele Holcomb, spokeswoman for
Florida Coca-Cola Bottling Co.
Holcomb said Coke would have come to the table with
a more lucrative proposal if the company knew to include
the UF-affiliated facility but has no plans at this time to chal-
lenge Pepsi's recently signed $27 million contract.
"We're keeping our options open," she said. "Our focus
right now is to be a quality partner through to the end."

But Pepsi Bottling Group spokeswoman Kelly
McAndrew said if Coke were to mount a challenge, it
would be crying over spilled sugar water.
"Coke officials were obviously upset about losing the
contract, but doesn't it seem odd to you that now they're
questioning something that's been going on for months and
months?" McAndrew said.
UF Business Services Director Jim Morgan, who handled
the bulk of the negotiations with both compa-
On nies, said talks were informal, and no official
Campus request was placed by the university.
Since UF isn't paying for any services,
Morgan said, public notice did not need to
be filed.
"It would even be impossible to say that including
Shands at Jacksonville would have any profound impact,
because the Pepsi offer was far and away better it's sub-
stantial dollars," he said.
Morgan estimated the Pepsi contract could be worth as
much as $7 to $10 million more than Coke's highest offer.

Here's the beef

B-frosh should carve

their own campus niche
W welcome to the dark side.
Can you feel the passion surging through you? To
learn, that is.
We salute you, the many new students who will end their
old lives six weeks early to get a jump-start on their education.
It's a smart move. Six or nine credits may not seem like a lot
in the grand scheme of earning a degree, but it takes the edge off
the four-year college program.
And it's a good foundation in case something goes wrong.
Chances are you'll drop at least one class along the way.
Life has a tendency to curve down and in on the hands, mak-
ing the swings tricky.
So don't worry about fitting in at a place like UE Forty-eight
thousand students in one place has its advantages, and you're
free to be as exuberant or expressionless as you like.
So feel free to carry that map all over campus until you get
it right.
Feel free to wear pajamas to class as much as you want.
You're in college now.
Feel free to wait in line for ten hours at Subway as the equal-
ly young swans in front of you dictate marching orders to the
servers straight out of a Nora Ephron movie.
Not every college has a Subway.
Feel free to get involved on campus by joining a club or even
going out for a sport of some kind. It's surprising how much
there is to do on campus until the opportunities pass them-
selves down.
Summer actually is a pretty good time to test the waters,
because everything speeds up a little bit come Fall.
Only you can be the true test of morality for your actions,
and only you will face the implications of your decisions.
So feel free to be yourself, because there's no point in becom-
ing something you're not.
You're in college now.




OPEN HOUSE FRIDAY


T he midpoint of the
summer brings another
visit from the most ex-
citing of all UF traditions.
No, not Gator Growl.
It's open-house day this
Friday here at the Alligator.
We're looking as usual
- for writers, copy editors,
opinion columnists, photog-
raphers and much, much
more.
For journalism students,
it's a great way to gain experi-
ence, because we grow in this
craft of ours through incessant
practice.
But working to have your
words printed in the Alligator
can benefit nearly anyone
who gains enjoyment from
writing. We have room under
one roof for a whole bunch of
topics.
From noon to 5 p.m. Friday
- that's the first day of July, for


those who're into the preci-
sion thing the doors to our
offices at 1105 W University
Ave. will throw themselves
open.
We'll have editors and
writers around to answer
questions about how we
operate and how to join the
madness. For new students
especially, filling out an in-
formation sheet may be the
first step of a long and fruitful
journalism career.
Besides, there's pizza and
soda involved. And likely a
birthday cake or two.
That's right: You too can
get started at the Alligator the
same day our editor turns 22.
So amble on down
University Avenue, two
blocks east of campus across
from the Bank of America,
and become part of some-
.thing great.

Eminent-domain ruling renders ownership meaningless


Lincoln, Neb.
W illiam Blackstone, in his
"Commentaries on the Laws of
England," stated "the law of the
land ... postpones even public necessity to
the sacred and inviolable rights of private
property."
Our system of law is founded on English
common law, and Blackstone's work is con-
sidered a canonical text in matters of English
common law.
Blackstone is so influential, in fact, that he
is still referred to and cited in modern courts
when interpreting law. If Blackstone could
hear the Supreme Court's most recent ruling
on eminent domain, he would roll over in his
grave.
The June 23 ruling in Kelo v. New London
centered on interpretation of the so-called
public use clause of the Fifth Amendment.
It reads that private property shall not "be
taken for public use, without just compensa-
tion."
Well, that seems simple enough. Simple,
until you throw a bunch of lawyers in the
mix.
The town of New London, Connrm., wanted
to clean up its downtown and waterfront dis-
tricts. A plan was approved to allow private
developers to create a "small urban village,"


with a waterfront hotel at its center, and a
supplemental collection of requisite restau-
rants and shopping centers.
The city appointed New London
Development Corporation, a private entity, to
act as its agent, and authorized it to purchase
property, or acquire it by exercising eminent
domain.
A few homeowners didn't want to sell,
and argued the city couldn't exercise eminent
domain because the land would be trans-
ferred to private owners and be privately
developed. Hardly a case that meets the Fifth
Amendment's public-use requirement.
The city countered the public-use require-
ment was met because the development
would create jobs and generate increased
tax revenue. Unfortunately, there is no back-
ing for this statement, other than the study
done by the development corporation, at the
request of the city of New London.
Astonishingly, in a 5-4 vote the Supreme
Court sided with the city of New London.
In their majority opinion, the justices even
stated there was no logical reason to require
"'reasonable certainty' that the expected ben-
efits would actually accrue."
If there is no requirement for a "reasonable
certainty" of public benefit, any proposal that
might, maybe, perhaps generate increased


Ray Lemoine tax revenue would be
U-Wire enough to allow a city
to declare eminent
domain and take away
people's homes. And that is exactly the prob-
lem with this ruling.
It makes it legal for the government to
take anyone's land, for essentially any pur-
pose, as long as it increases the value of the
property.
Associate Justice of the Supreme Court
and signer of the Declaration of Independence
Samuel Chase observed in Calder v. Bull,
"An act of the Legislature (for I cannot call
it a law) contrary to the great first principles
of the social compact, cannot be considered
a rightful exercise of legislative authority ...
A few instances will suffice to explain what
I mean ... (A) law that takes property from A
and gives it to B: It is against all reason and
justice."
Similarly, Alexander Hamilton is recorded
in the Records of the Federal Convention
of 1787 as stating that "the security of
Property" was one of the "great objects) of
Governmentt)"
So how did five justices get it so wrong?
Previous jurisprudence in matters of
eminent domain rests in two Supreme Court
cases involving the taking of private land


and turning it over to private use: Berman
v. Parker and Hawaii Housing Authority v.
Midkiff.
In both cases, the Supreme Court ruled the
properties in question inflicted demonstrable
harm to the community
Public use was realized when the harm to
the community was eliminated. Because the
taking of the property directly benefited the
public, the fact it was turned over to private
use was irrelevant.
In Kelo, New London never even claimed
a harm to the community from the well-main-
tained homes. Instead, it was argued that
because better use could be made of the land,
because it could be developed and valued at a
higher price, this would serve the public good.
Never mind one of the defendant's parcels of
land was slated to become a privately owned
hotel parking lot. Yeah, pubJic use for sure.
By accepting this argument, the Supreme
Court has made any notion of private owner-
ship of land meaningless.
The Supreme Court has missed the mark,
and replaced justice with empty law. As
James Madison said, "(T)hat alone is a just
government, which impartially secures to
every man, whatever is his own."

Student-loan rates rising


*CONSOLIDATING LOANS MAY BE
OPTION TO AVOID HIGH INTEREST.

By GENIE KIM
Alligator Contributing Writer
Student loan interest rates will be on the
rise starting July 1.
The Federal Stafford loan rate will rise
from 3.37 percent to 5.3 percent during in-
school, grace and deferment periods.
The Federal PLUS loan for parents will
also rise nearly 2 percent to 6.1 percent.
The Stafford loan has a cap rate at 8.25
percent, meaning the interest can't rise
'above that percentage. The PLUS loan has a
cap rate at 9 percent.
Interest rates are based on a Treasury bill,
which is updated every July 1.
If a student consolidates loans in a low-
rate environment, the student can roll all
loans into one and lock in a single rate on the
money owed, said Sandra Navarro, student
loan marketing assistant at Compass Bank.
That rate is a weighted average of all the


loans rounded up to the nearest eighth of a
percentage point.
Right now, the consolidated rate for a
Stafford loan obtained after June 1998 is 2.88
percent for students still in school and 3.38
percent for graduates who have begun re-
paying their loan. On July 1, however, those
rates will jump to 4.75 percent and 5.38 per-
cent, respectively.
Some lenders will allow students to fill out
a Federal Consolidation Loan Application as
late as June 30 to take advantage of low rates.
Students should consider several things
when consolidating their loans, Wachovia
spokesman Chris Darwin said. They should
not include a Federal Perkins loan because
it has a nine-month grace period and is al-
ready fixed at a 5 percent rate. Consolidating
it will not benefit the student.
One potential drawback to consolidating
while in school is the student begins repay-
ing the loan as soon as the student gradu-
ates, forfeiting the six-month grace period.
As it stands, a student can only consoli-
date loans once; however, the student can
reconsolidate with new loans, Darwin said.

Apartment complexes learned hurricane lessons


By AMANDA BROWN
Alligator Contributing Writer


This year's hurricane season is
predicted to be unusually active, but
many apartment complexes around
Gainesville see no reason to worry,
having learned lessons in the past.
At Looking Glass Apartments,
for example, property manager
George Emmanuel said the com-
plex was built to certain hurricane
standards in 1996, after Hurricane
Andrew, which devastated South
Florida in 1992 and spawned a
revolutionary change in building
standards. Therefore, building re-
inforcements like internal-structure


metal strapping are unnecessary.
"Two things happen during
a hurricane: tornados and flying
debris," Emmanuel said. "The only
thing we can't protect against is fall-
ing trees and tomadic winds."
Maintenance installed a gutter-
guard system to prevent clogging
and replaced two oak trees near the
Building A complex with palm trees,
which have stronger roots, he said.
The complex, which lost power
for six days during Hurricane
Frances last year, needs generators,
he said. High-speed fans dry carpets
that suffer water damage and ten-
ants rely on the office if they lose
electricity.
Fortunately, this area is not prone


to flooding or rising water because
it is on a hill, and Hogtown Creek is
about two blocks away, Emmanuel
said. The only damage tenants suf-
fered last year was water intrusion
from leaking windows.
Sun Bay, Sun Island and Sun
Key apartments on Southeast 16th
Avenue lost many trees, including
a giant live oak, said Jimi Brown,
assistant property manager for Sun
Bay apartments.
"It was easy to ignore," he said.
"We hadn't had a hurricane here in
35 years, and then we had two."
Tree limbs and other debris cov-
ered the property after the storms.
The buildings suffered a small
amount of roof damage, and resi-


dents were mostly inconvenienced
by water intrusion.
This year, Brown said he is not
only going to take standard pre-
cautions more seriously, but will
also clear ground drains of debris
so each can take the maximum
amount of water possible.
After losing power for approxi-
mately a week last year, Brown said
management has also considered
buying generators for the leasing
offices, but has not done so yet.
Treehouse Village
Condominiums on Southeast 16th
Avenue is hazard-pruning trees
property-wide this year to prepare
for the hurricane season.
The complex lost more than 40


trees last year, mostly in the front
of the property, said Jon Sheise,
property manager for Treehouse
Village.
"Mother Nature took care of
most of the pruning for us," he said.
Sheise and Mary Seales, a leas-
ing agent for Treehouse Village,
said two trees also fell on buildings
H and S last year, but none of the
residents were injured, and the
buildings only suffered minimal
damage.
After the first hurricane hit last
year, some tenants asked if the
managers might board up win-
dows on the property, Seales said.
However, no one has asked about
plans for this year yet.

First 15,000 student Growl tickets may cost $5 after new round of subsidy


GROWL, from page 1


"I think they did what they thought was
right," Telles-Irvin said of SG's original bill.
"When you have new information, you need
to reconsider the decision."
Jess Johnson, executive assistant to Telles-
Irvin, said this is only the second administra-
tive veto of an SG bill in two years.
Telles-Irvin said she adequately communi-
cated with SG about her decision.
"I have done an effective job," she said.


"I've had some very effective conversations.
I would hope to continue to have great com-
munication."
But Sen. Jared Hernandez said he doesn't
see it in the same light.
"We have a vice president telling the
students how to spend student money," he
said. "Telles-Irvin decided that that was not a
prudent expenditure of student monies. That's
wonderful if she was a student senator. (But)
you have a vice president that is not commu-
nicating with students."
Telles-Irvin said she would discuss the spe-


cifics of the veto at a future Senate meeting, al-
though she would not give a specific date, nor
elaborate on her reasoning to the Alligator.
Kassim said Telles-Irvin was concerned
about the "integrity" of student fees and
was worried that with SG funding, Growl
could become an entity of the university,
violating UF's contract with Florida Blue
Key, which has been putting on the. event
since its inception.
"I see my role as a partnership with SG,"
Telles-Irvin said. "We are here to enhance
the lives of students. I encourage SG to think


about the bigger picture."
Kassim said SG needs to work "indepen-
dently and congruently" with UF administra-
tion..
"UF, as a whole, is undergoing changes,"
.she said. "We are also going to have to un-
dergo changes. I anticipate more coming in
the future."
Kassim said Telles-Irvin would not be able
to veto the proposal this time.
"The sad thing is someone is not going to
be happy about it," she said. "Some students
may say $5 I still can't afford that."


UF: Pepsi contract worth $7 million-plus more over life of exclusive contract


COKE, from page 1


Representatives from several UF-related groups, in-
cluding the University Athletic Association and the UF
Foundation, spent most of the Spring working with the two
cola giants before opting for Pepsi last month.
In order to be considered UF's official soft drink, Pepsi
will give around $27 million in merchandise, free beverages
and hard cash to the University, some of which will fund


scholarship programs for students and professorships for
faculty.
McAndrew said to her knowledge, both. companies were
treated equitably by UE.
"They (Coke) had no more or less communication than
we (Pepsi) did," she said. "The direction the university pro-
vided was clear."
Morgan had the same assessment.
"Everyone may feel that they know what happened and
what's going on, but I assure you each side was given equal
opportunities in this process."


A priority for both companies is ensuring the hundreds
of Coke machines around campus become hundreds of
Pepsi machines by Aug. 16, the date the contract changes
hands.
Holcomb said Coke already began moving its equipment
off campus, although there may be some stragglers when the
Fall semester starts.
McAndrew said Pepsi is on schedule and has kept fo-
cused on working with UF.
"We won the bid, we negotiated the contract, and now
we plan on executing that contract," she said.

Gay views
By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Writer
liewis@alligator.org
Public opinion of gay issues may
be shifting, as a UF study found that
most Floridians are neither strictly
conservative nor wholly liberal in their
views concerning homosexuality.
UP political science professor
Stephen Craig led the study, which
found that while 74 percent of partici-
pants were ambivalent about at least
one issue, only 31 percent reported
feeling conflicted about seven of the
eight issues.
"The American public appears to
be on average both supportive and
hostile to homosexual and gay rights,
depending on the specific question
being asked," Craig said in a press
release. "Someone might think that
homosexuals should not be discrimi-
nated against in the workplace ... but
at the same time express the opinion
they don't want gays or lesbians
teaching impressionable young kids
in the schools."


centered
In June 2002, about 600 Florida vot-
ers were surveyed. Participants were
presented with eight different state-
ments describing homosexual issues,
such as partner benefits and military
service, and were then asked to rate
both their positive and negative feel-
ings toward them.
UF's Director of Gay, Lesbian,
Bisexual and Transgendered Affairs
Tamara Cohen said she feels the
research indicates
UF promising advances
Research toward widespread
understanding of
gay issues.
"I think it's a very positive
study because it means people are
likely to be fair-minded,' she said.
Cohen did acknowledge that the fight
for gay rights has a long way to go.
When it comes to issues people
don't understand as much, such as
the marriage issue, there is still a lot of
fear and ignorance," she said. "We're
in a complicated time, and with every
few steps forward there are a few steps
backward."

High court's ruling may hinder SG-funded downloads


* FREE SERVICE FOUND TO
PROMOTE PIRACY.

By DIANA MAZZELLA
Alligator Contributing Writer

Filesharing suffered a setback
Monday when the Supreme Court
ruled that Internet peer-to-peer ser-
vices can be held responsible if they
intend for their customers to use
software primarily to swap songs
and movies illegally.
Filesharing services shouldn't get
a pass on bad behavior, justices said.
"We hold that one who distrib-
utes a device with the object of pro-
moting its use to infringe copyright,
as shown by the clear expression
or other affirmative steps taken to
foster infringement, is liable for
the resulting acts of infringement


by third parties," Justice David H.
Souter wrote.
As a result of the ruling, the fate
of Student Government's plan to
bring music downloading to UF
students is unknown, Student Body
President Joe Goldberg said.
"If this new ruling of the Supreme
Court is going to affect us being able
to provide this service to students,
then it's something that we're going
to have to look into," he said.
The SG plan to provide free
music downloads to students still
needs more research, Goldberg said,
though he hopes it happens by the
end of the year.
Goldberg said SG considered sub-
scribing to a music-downloading ser-
vice that could be costly but would
provide it to students for free.
Grokster, however, is a free ser-
vice supported by ad revenue.


UF senior Melissa Tison said file-
sharing seemed like copying a song
from the radio or copying CDs.
"People still find ways around
the system," she said.
In fact, two lower courts previ-
ously sided with Grokster without
holding a trial. They each based
their decisions on the 1984 Supreme
Court ruling that Sony Corp. could
not be sued over consumers who
used its VCRs to make illegal copies
of movies because most people used
VCRs legally to tape programs and
watch them later.
The lower courts also reasoned
that the file-sharing services were
not legally responsible because they
don't have central servers pointing
users to copyright material.
Sharing copyrighted material
over UF's in-house internet service,
DHNet, is prohibited, according to


the Department of Housing and
Residence Education's Web site.
If the department believes its
DHNet rules have been violated, it
can restrict service for 30 minutes for
a first offense, five days on a second
offense and until a user attends a ju-
dicial meeting for a third offense.
Some offenses considered more
serious by the department receive
the same treatment as a third of-
fense, though they may be first of-
fenses, the Web site stated.
At issue in the lawsuit, Metro-
Goldwyn-Mayer Studios v.
Grokster, was whether file-sharing
services should be held liable even
if they have no direct control over
what millions of online users are do-
ing with the software they provide
for free. As much as 90 percent of
songs and movies copied on the file-
sharing networks are downloaded


illegally, according to music indus-.
try filings.
"The Supreme Court has helped
to power the digital future for
legitimate online businesses in-
cluding legal filesharing networks
- by holding accountable those
who promote and profit from theft,"
said Mitch Bainwol of the Recording
Industry Association of America.
Ed Black, head of the Computer
& Communications Industry
Association, said the ruling was "a
very dangerous decision for tech-
nology and innovation." Critics like
Black said technology companies
will be so anxious over potential
lawsuits they may hesitate to devel-
op new products and services unless
lawyers can assure them they'll be
safe in the courtroom.

UF Spanish professor seeks improved bilingual classes


Class credits would be expanded to five


By AMANDA BROWN
Alligator Contributing Writer


As America moves steadily toward be-
coming a nation where the largest minority
is Hispanic, one UF professor is making an
effort to improve instruction in the Spanish
language.
Throughout the summer, Susana Braylan, a
coordinator for bilingual programs, will work
on a proposal to extend bilingual Spanish
classes from three to five credits to help stu-
dents improve their communication skills.
Braylan said the bilingual program at UF is
well-designed for students as far as progres-
sive levels of difficulty, but there is always
room for improvement.
"We should take advantage of a population
that is proud to be Hispanic," she said.
Spanish bilinguals are students who can
speak Spanish in an informal manner, Braylan


said. In general, these students have learned
the language on the street, among friends and
family or have lived for a considerable amount
of time in a Spanish-speaking country.
Braylan wants to propose more study
abroad programs geared toward bilinguals.
"Studying abroad is the best way to improve
language," Braylan said. "Living with a family
in another country allows the student to gain
a much better understanding of other cultures
and realize that people can live differently and
still communicate with one another."
Camille Hartmann, a UF student who
recently returned from a semester in Spain,
said both studying abroad and living with a
host family were the best ways to expand her
knowledge of Spanish.
"A family makes it a lot easier to have an
opportunity to speak Spanish because you
don't have to go out of your way," she said. "It
is right there at home."


Immersion is the only way to truly im-
prove, said Hartmann, who once had to de-
scribe a screwdriver to her "sefiora" in order
to find one.
"We should take advantage of
a population that is proud to be
Hispanic."
Susana Braylan
Bilingual-programs coordinator

Hartmann also found that Spaniards were
very willing to share their culture with her..
"I'd be sitting in the park and, without fail,
someone would come up to me and start talk-
ing to me about the culture," she said.
Similarly, the Institute of Hispanic-Latino
Cultures at UF hosts a series of discussions
and films about their culture, as well as a
number of events like Cosina Latina and Caf6
Cultural to raise cultural awareness through-
out the Gainesville community.


La Casita, as it is informally called, de-
signs events to make the community aware
of Hispanic issues and generally unites a
culture, said Davier Rodriguez, a student
majoring in Spanish and history at UF and a
liaison between La Casita and UF students.
It provides a comfort zone for Hispanic stu-
dents where all of the Hispanic cultures are
represented. -
"We provide resources for students, from
organizing community events to facilitating
them with meeting rooms," he said. "I would
like to see a monthly newsletter centered
around Hispanic and Latino events and is-
sues on campus."
Braylan's proposal, which also includes
ideas for Spanish classes in business, journal-
ism and medicine, as well as programs that
bring community leaders to speak on campus
and a student-produced online newsletter for
Spanish bilinguals, must still be submitted
to the state government in Tallahassee for
approval.

Hearing checks offered


N TEN PERCENT OF AMERICANS
SUFFER FROM HEARING LOSS, AN
IRREVERSIBLE CONDITION.

By ERIN CHALFANT
Alligator Contributing Writer

First, the bold tick-tock of the hall clock
becomes a meek tick.
Then fans no longer roar at football
games. Birds don't chirp in the morning,
and people will mumble constantly.
Finally it will all stop beeps, buzzes,
coughs, sighs and giggles will turn to si-
lence.
Twenty-eight million Americans, 10 per-
cent of the nation's population, experience
hearing loss. The problem is irreversible,
and occurs so slowly that it is often un-
checked until it is advanced.
But hearing loss can be prevented.
The Department of Communication
Sciences and Disorders is continuing to offer
free hearing screenings for UF faculty and
staff in July and August.
Michelle Colbum, who has a doctorate in
audiology and is director of clinical audiol-
ogy at UF, said hearing loss usually occurs
later in life, but what students do when they


are young has a lasting effect on their ears.
"It's not a bad idea to get your hearing
checked in your 20s," she said, "especially
if you have been exposed to many loud
noises."
This is the first year the clinic is offering
free screenings, and hundreds of faculty
members have taken advantage since the
program started in June. Colburn said the
clinic hopes to heighten awareness about
hearing loss and let people know it is avail-
able to help.
On Faculty, staff and students
Campus can schedule an appointment
by calling 392-2041 or stopping
by the fourth floor of Dauer
Hall.
The test consists of a word-recognition
section and a pure-tone test, where you indi-
cate the softest tone you can hear. Results are
available immediately.
Colburn said any noise above 85 deci-
bels, the level of sound produced by lawn
mowers, can cause permanent damage.
"A basic rule of thumb is if you have to
raise your voice to be heard, it's too loud,"
she said.
She recommends avoiding loud noise
when possible and wearing properly in-
serted ear protection.


UF embraces new browser


By BRENT STEINBERG
Alligator Contributing Writer

Microsoft Corp.'s stronghold on
the Internet-browser market has been
eroded slightly as Firefox continues to
gain loyal followers and a great deal of
acclaim.
Firefox, an open-source Internet
browser first released by the Mozilla
Foundation in November 2004, claimed
8 percent of the global market this
month, according to NetApplications, a
Web-site traffic analysis firm.
Firefox's rise in popularity is becom-
ing evident at UF. The browser, which is
free to use, was included on the most re-
cent version of UF's software disc, which
is free to students.
Physics is one of the academic de-
partments that recommends Firefox as
its primary browser.
David Carlson, director of the UF
Interactive Media Lab, is one of the
estimated 64 million people who have
switched to Firefox.


"A lot of people are looking for an
alternative to Internet Explorer," Carlson
said. "To me, it is really the enhanced se-
curity and the tabbed browsing that sets
Firefox apart."
Tabbed browsing, which allows us-
ers to view more than
one page in a single
window, is one of the
unique features that
has helped Firefox
win numerous
awards, including
Product of the Year for
2005 from PC World
Carlson magazine. Firefox has
many built-in features that protect users'
computers from malicious spyware and
do not allow pop-up advertisements.
Marc Hoit, interim associate provost
for information technology, said the uni-
versity doesn't have a policy on which
browsers students should use.
The campus Microsoft agreement,
which expires in October 2007, does not
specify which browser must be used.

UF exceeds goals, disproves critics by reaching CWS


Team reflects


on memora-


bie season

By TIM CASEY
Alligator Writer
tcasey@alligator.org

OMAHA, Neb.- The longest
season in UF history went by in
a flash.
On November 24, 2004, when
the team was wrapping up fall
workouts, Jeff Corsaletti predicted
as much.
"You play 56 games, and those
56 games feel like they're all in one
month by the time you're done
playing," Corsaletti said. "Before
you know it, it will be done, so you
just have to cherish every moment
of it."
Actually, the Gators played 71
games this year, going further than
any previous UF baseball team by
reaching the championship round
of the College World Series.
The success of the 2005 team
did not come overnight.
UF coach Pat McMahon stuck
with his strategy from the begin-
ning. Instead of having his players
overwhelmed with the daunt-
ing trials of the entire season,
McMahon sets short-term goals for
his team.
"The stages and the plan are
really important to me because
it breaks everything down into a
step," McMahon said. "Now you
have a specific goal that is reach-
able. With anything you do, so of-
ten people get concerned about the
bigger picture. A journey is steps
and stages, and if you don't take it
that way I think there's a chance to
run eschew."
McMahon was named
Southeastern Conference Coach of
the Year after the Gators finished
20-10 in the SEC and won the con-
ference title.
Prior to the beginning of the
season, a poll of SEC coaches
placed the Gators in third place.
That's third place in the Eastern
Division.
When informed of his col-
league's prediction in January,
McMahon flashed his charismatic
smile.
"Interesting," McMahon said.
"We'll look for that as a wonderful
challenge to move things forward.
And we will."

Blueprint for success
One of the most apparent
beginnings of the team's develop-
ment was the signing of a highly
touted junior-college transfer.
A former first-round draft pick
in the Major League Draft, Alan
Home returned to the SEC a year
after playing at Chipola Junior
College. His career at Mississippi
was cut short by Tommy John sur-
gery 22 months ago.
When Home stepped on cam-


.IIII /y MIII/ OLUI OL-6 l
UF starter Alan Horne was carried off of the field by Bryan Ball and pitching coach Ross Jones in the fourth
inning of Thursday's 6-3 win against Arizona State. Tommy Boss did not a low a run in 5.2 innings.


pus in January, McMahon said that
pitching coach Ross Jones turned
handsprings in the outfield.
The Gators also returned a core
of four seniors.
Center fielder Jeff Corsaletti
turned down a professional con-
tract in the off-season. He wanted
to increase his draft standing and
reach the College World Series.
"If it was up to me, I'd like to hit
12-13 home runs this year," he said
in November. "But, at the same
time, if I only hit five or six home
runs and we go to Omaha, I'll take
that. That will work for me."
Corsaletti hit 10 home runs and
was drafted in the sixth round by
his favorite team, the Boston Red
Sox, improving his draft standing
by 22 rounds.
He had predicted the team's
success would ride on the pitch-
ing staff.
"Last year, I thought we were
one pitcher short," Corsaletti said.
"I think this year we have a good
shot. Our pitching staff, our crop
of new pitchers, we have a bunch
of good ones."
Add to the mix a powerful
sophomore first baseman. Matt
LaPorta led his summer league in
home runs in the off-season. He
said that the team was out to prove
its detractors wrong.
"Everybody thought we
wouldn't even finish third in our
own -division," LaPorta said. "I
knew at the beginning that we had
a chance to go this far."
LaPorta was named to multiple
All-America teams and led the na-
tion with 26 home runs. He said
that the recent success of the team
will be a foundation for future
years.
"I think it's good for the team to

know that we should be able to get
[to Omaha] every year," LaPorta


said. "Once you get that taste of it,
you should pass that tradition on.
People get that swagger and feel
like they can be there every year."

Emotional boost
But no story rivaled that' of
third-baseman Brandon McArthur.
Accounts of his brain surgeries fol-
lowing an unprovoked attack out-
side a Gainesville bar in October
2003 have been well documented.
While the team played on ESPN in
Nebraska, his heartwarming story
of recovery was repeated to a na-
tional audience.
While many people may have
been sympathetic, for much of
the year opponents didn't cut
McArthur any slack.
McArthur had the lowest field-
ing percentage of anybody on the
team with more than 50 chances.
He struggled at the plate at the be-
ginning of the year despite nearly
scoring the winning run in the sea-
son opener, a game the Gators lost
to Charleston Southern.
"I'm not really worrying about
the last game or thinking about
the future," McArthur said during
a 15-game hitting steak in April.
"When you struggle, you let it go.
You don't think about it and don't
wonder what would have hap-
pened if you would have done it
differently."
On February 22, McArthur
had three hits against FAMU.
Before the game, the scars from
the surgeries were visible after he
shaved his head, shaped in a long
arc that resembled the stitches on
a baseball.
He said the new haircut wasn't
an attempt to break his hitting
slump.
"I'm not that superstitious
about this game, it wasn't anything
like that," McArthur said. "We're
an easy-going team. It was getting


long. I said if we're going to cut it,
might as well take it all off."

Very superstitious
The team was not without su-
perstitions, however. McMahon's
11-year old son, J. Wells, was seen
as a source of good luck in the
dugout.
"He's a huge part of the team,"
student manager Alex Altman
said. "He blesses the bats before
the games. Jeroloman, Gavin,
LaPorta's bats, he does a little
magic trick, puts him in them."
Whatever the trick was, hits
flowed from the Gators' bats.
Junior shortstop Justin Tordi
proved to be clairvoyant when he
made a prediction in January.
"I think our team is really solid
this year," Tordi said. "With the


guys that we have coming back,
the guys that we had come in,
it's only going to help us out, the
experience. I have a great outlook
for the season, I think we're going
to go far. But definitely, we have
a chance at taking the SEC. I've
grown a dislike for Miami over
the years. Just looking at our roster
and what we've got, the talent we
have, we're going to get them this
year and send them home packing.
We're going to take it to Omaha."
The Gators were able to break
the Miami hex by defeating the
Hurricanes twice in a three-game
February series.

Ball games
Junior right-handed pitcher
Bryan Ball was the most effec-
tive pitcher for the first half of
the season. As part of next year's
senior class, Ball is optimistic for
the future.
"I think we'll be good,." Ball
said. "We have a lot of returning
people. We're all anxious to start
working together and hopefully
get back here one day."
Ball will not be playing summer
baseball so he can rest his-elbow,
which caused him to miss a couple
of starts.
"I'm going to relax," Ball said.
"Hopefully, [I'll] get a little fishing
time."

Second to one
The preseason goals of winning
the SEC, defeating Miami and
reaching the CWS were exceeded.
Only one goal went unmet.
In January, LaPorta gave his
answer when asked what the
best thing that could happen this
season.
"For us to go to Omaha and win
the College World Series," LaPorta
said.
A season when the team was 18
innings from completing that ulti-
mate goal, though, can't be consid-
ered anything else but a success.

Lochte receives SEC Male Athlete of the Year award


STAFF REPORT

Cadillac Williams may have
been the face of the Southeastern
Conference last year, but on
Wednesday it was a UF swimmer
that took home the SEC's top indi-
vidual award.
Junior Ryan Lochte was honored
Wednesday as the 2004-05 Roy F.
Kramer Southeastern Conference
Male Athlete of the Year in a vote by
the league's athletics directors.
"Ryan had a spectacular sea-
son," UF coach Gregg Troy said. "It
was almost perfectly scripted. He
earned it, it's well deserved and I'm
very proud of him."
Lochte became the second UF
athlete to win the award, joining
former Gators football star and two-
time winnrmer Danny Wuerffel (1996,
1997). Auburn swimmer Kirsty
Coventry won the female award.
"Ryan and Kirsty are excellent
representatives for their universi-
ties and this conference," SEC
Commissioner. Mike Slive said.
"They have competed at the highest


level and through their hard work,
dedication and commitment have
shown the true meaning of being
a student-athlete. The SEC is very
proud to honor these-two student-
athletes for their accomplishments.
We congratulate them on their ef-
forts and wish them "' best in their
future endeav-
ors."
Lochte cap-


Lochte


tured two med-
als in the 2004
Olympics in
Athens, includ-
ing a gold as a
member of the
U.S. 800-meter


freestyle relay that set an American
record of 7:07.33, and a silver medal
in the 200-meter individual medley
in a school record time of 1:58.78 -
the third-fastest time ever recorded
in the history of the event.
During the 2004-05 season at
UF, Lochte was named the NCAA
Swimmer of the Meet at the na-
tional championships and the SEC
Swimmer of the Year, while also


claiming the SEC Commissioner's
Trophy as the high-point scorer at
the SEC Championships. He accom-
plished the same feat at the 2004 U.S.
Open as he tallied the most points of
any swimmer.
In the pool during the past year,
Lochte eclipsed two American, three
U.S. Open, three NCAA, nine SEC
and 10 UF records. He won a pair
of NCAA titles (200-yard individual
medley, 200-yard backstroke) and
was part of the NCAA champion
800-yard freestyle relay.

WOMEN'S TENNIS: With a herd of
Wimbledon fans eagerly anticipat-
ing another Serena-Venus Williams
Grand Slam matchup, little-known
former University of Florida ten-
nis star Jill Craybas made sure it
wouldn't be a sisterly reunion on
the grass courts.
Craybas, the 1996 NCAA sin-
gles champion at UF who, as a pro-
fessional, had never advanced past
the third round of a Grand Slam,
shocked fourth-seeded Serena


Williams 6-3, 7-6 on Saturday at
Wimbledon.
But Cryabas' storied ride came
to an end on Monday at the hands
of Venus.
Venus Williams revenged her
younger sister's loss by defeating
Craybas 6-0, 6-2.
"I think she was really fired
up today, and I think she played
great," Craybas said of the 14th-
seeded Venus. "She came up with
some really great shots at key mo-
ments, and she just kept the pres-
sure on the whole time."
When asked if she won for
family pride, Venus said she sim-
ply didn't want to be the second
Williams to fall to Craybas.
"It's hard to say exactly," Venus
said. "But I definitely would like
to do it a little bit for my sister, but
mostly for me."

MEN'S TRACK: Former UF standout
Kerron Clement, who recently
went professional following his


sophomore season, and Hazel
Clark claimed national titles at
the USA outdoor championships
in Carson, Calif., on Suniday.
Sophomore Mike Morrison fin-
ished tied for 10th in the high
jump on the final day of competi-
tion.
Clement ran the fastest time
in the last seven years by an
American in the 400 meter hurdles
(47.24), while Clark posted the top
American time of the year to win
the 800m in 1:59.74.
Clement, who was named the
Visa Champion for the top male
individual performance of the
meet, earned a trip to the 2005
World Championships in Helsinki,
Finland, Aug. 6-14. Clement's time
of 47.24 seconds was more than
half a second faster than 2003 U.S.
champion Bershawn Jackson, who
was second with a time of 47.80.
Former Gators NCAA champion
Rickey Harris was eighth with a
time of 50.57.

Lee improves status


ALLIGATOR
www.alligatorSports.org


By BRYAN APP
Alligator Staff Writer
bapp@alligator.org

With more than a half century of
NBA experience under his belt, Marty
Blake sounds pretty confident when it
comes to his profession.
As the league's director of scouting,
l .. he is one of the few
S if any who
tabulates compre-
Shensive ratings
of potential 'NBA
prospects prior to
Spre-draft camps and
workouts.
Blake So as the hype
and rumors regarding a prospect's stock
rising or falling continue to circulate be-
fore tonight's NBA draft, the recruiting
czar continues to grow more unnerved.
He knows what he's talking about.
He knows what he likes. And he can-
didly will explain why one former UF
big man will be among the rising stars
at Madison Square Garden.
"I'll tell you who really moved up in
the draft David Lee," said Blake.
"He came to [the pre-draft camp in]
Chicago, and he went out and busted
his ass."
Lee's work ethic not only impressed


an old-timer like Blake, it also grabbed
the attention of many franchises by
earning MVP honors in Chicago and
testing as the most athletic power for-
ward in a hybrid of exercises, including
the bench press, vertical leap, three-
quarter court sprint and lane agility.
"He played hard," Blake said. "He
went in there and played a team game.
He was enthusiastic. He went through
all the drills. The coaches loved him."
And the mere fact that he didn't even
have to show up in Chicago could push
the 6-foot-9 forward with a rollercoaster
collegiate career into the first round
tonight.
Some prospects invited to partici-
pate including former UF guard Matt
Walsh chose to bypass the camp in
order to protect their draft stock.
Lee, however, remained committed.
"All the reporters asked him why
he came," Blake said. "And he said,
'Why wouldn't I come? I want to play
basketball. I want to show you that I'm

Championship hopes draws fans


By SPENCER DAVIS-VANNESS

Calico Jack's Oyster Bar and
Seafood House on Second Avenue
was hit by a rare outbreak of Gators
baseball fever Saturday night that
caught the restaurant by surprise
and left at least one of its employees
just a little dazed.
"Saturday night was crazy, it
was absolutely packed," CJ's cook
Kyle Boston said. "We had to stop
taking tickets in the kitchen for al-
most an hour because we ran out of
food and had to restock just about
everything."
While fans don't generally pack
the bars to watch televised UF base-
ball games, the Gators were playing
for a national championship for the


first time in school history.
The fans noticed.
Saturday night's madhouse may
have filled CJ's to the brink, but as
the mayhem subsided to a game-
one letdown, Sunday brought a
much different picture.
"Win or lose, this season
has been a huge success."
Rick Juday
UF alumnus


A modest, but hardly capac-
ity crowd spread around the
restaurant as faithful Gators fans
watched the team's last hurrah.
"Win or lose, this season has
been a huge success," said Rick
Juday, UF class of 1970.
Juday's brother, Jim, played for


the UF baseball team in the early
1970s, but Juday admitted that he
didn't always follow the team.
"The alumni have not support-
ed the Gators as well as it should,
but now many fans are coming
together that usually haven't done
so for anything but football," he
said. "And we don't want to just
support football."
Neil Irvin, 21, felt that this
season's trip deep into the College
World Series proved that UF was
rising to prominence in Florida.
"The baseball team is making
UF well-rounded and a true lead-
er in the state," he said. "We're
not just a football or basketball
school."

CWS from the West

y bags were packed, my mouth salivating at the
thought of a juicy Omaha steak.
Here I was, just 22 years old and finally ready
to embark on a journey to Pat McMahon's Zion.
But in a move that mirrors Macaulay Culkin in "Home
Alone 2" (a sequel second only to Godfather 2 for its cin-
ematic genius and superb Oscar-caliber performances),
I hopped on the wrong plane and
somehow (hands on the face, let
out a scream) ended up in San
Francisco.
After all those trips to Starkville,
Miss., and Nashville, Tennrm., for
meaningless football games, one of
Andrew the most monumental events in UF
Abramson sports history occurred and I was left
Drew's Control in the dark. Who schedules a College
aabramson@alligator.org World Series during summer break
anyway?
So while Alligator baseball guru
Tim Casey spent his entire life's fortune and, in the process,
destroyed two cars in a mad rush to make it to the Orlando
Airport in less than two hours so he wouldn't miss a pitch
in the College World Series, I did the next best thing.
I enjoyed the best run in UF baseball history from hotel
rooms and bars.
And you know what? It was just as good from the West

LaPorta ends season as nation's top slugger


-' V,4.

OMAHA, Neb. -
Southeastern. Conference Player
of the Year Matt LaPorta took
sole possession of the national
home-run title when he hit his
26th home run of the season in
Thursday's win against Arizona
State.
LaPorta extended his own
single-season school home-run
record when he hit a 3-2 pitch
out of Rosenblatt Stadium,
clearing the scoreboard in left
field.
LaPorta credited his home-
run success to a strict team
workout routine that runs year-
round.
"We've worked really hard
for this," LaPorta said. "[We
get up] at 5:30 in the morning
to practice and run at the sta-
dium."
Texas coach Augie Garrido
said he was impressed with the
sophomore slugger's blasts.
"I've watched him hit some
of those balls he hits," Garrido
said. "They go far, man. He
launches things that NASA
wished they could."
The record-setting home run
came immediately after Adam
Davis hit a three-run home run.
It was the third time this season
that they hit back-to-back home
runs. UF center fielder Jeff
Corsaletti said the team was en-


ergized by LaPorta's deeply-hit
home runs.
"We joke around that he has
to hit a home run for us to win,"
Corsaletti said. "It gives us
momentum and gives us some
life."
LaPorta also hit a home run
in the Gators' first game of the
College World Series on June
17. LaPorta hit a pitch from All-
American Luke Hochevar into
the left-field bleachers for UF to
take the lead 2-0.
"He threw me a slider, and
it just broke across the plate,"
LaPorta said. "I took a good
swing at it, hit it well and it
went out."
His 25th home run tied
Clemson's Kris. Harvey and
Birmingham-Southern's Adam
Tucker for the top spot nation-
ally.
LaPorta finished with 79 RBI,
which ranks second in UF his-
tory as the most RBIs in a single
season. Only Ryan Shealy had
more, with 80 RBI in 2002.
Coincidentally, Shealy re-
corded his first MLB hit while
the Gators were in Omaha.
Shealy now plays for the
Colorado Rockies.

RECORD CROWDS: The Gators
played in front of more fans
than any other prior teams in
the CWS.
The tournament set a new at-
tendance record of 263,475 total
fans. The average per session of


23,952 also set a record.
Before a crowd of 26,813 fans
on June 19, the second-highest
attendance in NCAA College
World Series history at the time,
the Gators defeated home-state
Nebraska in a winner's bracket
contest. The crowd was almost
entirely clad in red and white.

OFFENSIVE SLUMP: This was the
first CWS since 1971 in which no
team scored 10 or more runs in
a game, and the first since 1966
in which no team scored more
than eight runs in a game. In
15 games, 124 runs were scored,
and the 8.27 average runs per
game is the lowest since 1974,
when the designated hitter and
metal bats were introduced.
For the first time in 59 years,
a triple was not hit at the CWS.

BREAKING NEW GROUND: UF
had never reached the cham-
pionship round of the CWS be-
fore. This year was the fifth time
in school history that the Gators
reached the CWS.
After finishing 3-3 in the 2005
CWS, UF is now 9-10 all-time in
Omaha.
By reaching the champion-
ship round, UF became the only
school in the last ten years in
Division I-A to play for the na-
tional championship in football,
men's basketball and baseball.
UF is one of only three schools
to ever accomplish this feat, and
the only SEC school to do so.


Gators' Every hangs with top pros in U.S. Open debut


By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
aabramson@alligator.org

Tiger Woods couldn't top him. Retief
Goosen didn't even come close.
For one afternoon, on a day when nobody
expected a 21-year-old college golfer to be
competing in one of the nation's most pres-
tigious events, UF's Matt Every proved that
he could not only play with the world's best
golfers, but he could surpass the nation's elite.
"On any given day, if you're a good player,
you can knock off somebody really special,"
said Every, who finished as the top amateur at


the U.S. Open and tied for 28th overall. "Hell,
that last day I think only four guys beat me. I
tied Tiger the last day, I beat Retief by 11.
"The first two rounds I putted like I was
blind it was so bad. But to finish 28th after not
being on top of my putting, I was pretty happy
with the way things worked out."
Simply participating in the U.S. Open was,
surprising to many as Every barely made it to
Pinehurst, N.C. He earned a berth in the Open
by winning a dramatic five-hole playoff in the
qualifying rounds.
Former UF star Chris DiMarco one of the
favorites heading into the Open said he was
impressed by Every's work ethic after spend-


ing the day with him during a practice round.
But DiMarco said any college junior would
have to be nervous playing in the spotlight.
So it was a shock to most when Every shot
a 75 on Thursday before rebounding to shoot
a 73 on Friday, just making the cut. DiMarco,
meanwhile, became the highest profile player
to miss the cut, shooting a 13-over 153.
But Every wouldn't stop there. He actually
improved throughout the weekend, shooting
a 73 on Saturday and then making his true na-
tional debut with a Sunday score of 70.
Had Every been a professional, he would
have earned more than $44,000 on the week-
end.


"It's fun. I love the cameras, they don't
bother me at all," Every said. "I like when the
attention's on me. I'm an entertainer and I like
putting on a show and hitting good shots.
"I felt like I belonged and I think my game
showed that I belonged too."
After a rare week and a half rest, Every will
prepare for the Amateur Public Links tourna-
ment in Lebanon, Ohio.
For Every, the tournament has high stakes,
as 15-year-old female golfing sensation
Michelle Wie already qualified for the other-
wise male event.
"I want to play her," Every said. "I ain't
scared of a 15-year-old girl."


UF hires coach from Wichita State to take softball helm


By BRYAN APP
Alligator Staff Writer
bapp@alligator.org

Nearly one month after electing
not to renew the contract of former
UF softball coach Karen Johns, ath-
letics Director Jeremy Foley found a
new skipper and possibly his new-
est fan.
Foley announced that Wichita
State coach Tim Walton will suc-


ceed Johns as the new Gators coach
- a decision that likely will please
Walton's 5-year-old son, Brooks.
"He's been routing for the Gators
[baseball team at the College World
Series]," Walton said. "I think he
likes the mascot. But I think in the
back of his mind he's been hearing
some things, and he's been hoping
and wishing for some things as
well."
With Brooks' wish fulfilled,


Walton will look to return the favor
by nudging a UF program that
finished no better than fifth in the
Southeastern Conference under
Johns over the proverbial hump.
But it's not like he hasn't done as
much before.
Walton capped a three-year
turn-around at Wichita State this
season, leading the Shockers to
their first NCAA Tournament in
16 years.


"Tim went into a program that,
to speak emphatically, hadn't had
much success, and the job he's
done in three years has been phe-
nomenal," Foley said. "To turn that
program around in three years was
very impressive to us."
* Wichita State finished this
season with a 46-16 record the
Shockers' best in school history
and a 25-game improvement from
the program's finish in 2001, the


year prior to Walton taking the
helm. _
Walton, 32, also won the 2000
NCAA title as an assistant at his
alma mater, Oklahoma, and as
a collegiate player, pitched the
Sooners to a 13-5 win against
Georgia Tech in the 1994 College
World Series championship game.
Walton has yet to name his as-
sistants but said he likely would
within the next two weeks. .

Uncertainty'surrounds Roberson, Walsh


DRAFT, from page 22


power forward in the draft, questions the need at Lee's
position.
,'If his offense were further along, he'd be higher on the
list," Ford said. "As it stands, he has to wonder whether 10
power forwards can make it into the first round."
Projected as a late to mid-first-rounder by Ford, Lee has
received positive feedback after working out with the San
Antonio Spurs, who possess the No. 28 pick.
And though the fate of the rest of UF's Big Three re-
mains somewhat unclear, Lee could have familiar company
in 'Pie first round, potentially providing the first NBA Draft
in which two Gators were selected in the opening round


since Mike Miller (5th overall) and Donnell Harvey (22nd)
in 2000.
Walsh shocked the Gator Nation by joining teammate
Anthony Roberson in declaring for the draft on April 13,
making the top-scoring tandem the first UF underclassmen
to declare during the same year since Miller and Harvey.
But Roberson, the Gators' top scorer the last two seasons,
has barely made a blip on the scouting radar, while Walsh
continued to surprise by remaining in the draft, following
a flurry of interest.
"I was quite surprised to see that Matt Walsh stayed
in," Blake said. "But he's obviously worked out for some
teams who have liked him and more or less indicated that
he might go in the first round."


Despite series loss, fans call 2005 a success


REACTION, from page 22

baseball fan Devin Dissell, 19, at-
tended his first game at McKethan
Stadium at seven years old.
He has sat through both periods
of success and turmoil throughout
the years.


"I remember the 1998 season re-
ally vividly," Dissell said. "That's
the last time that we made it to
Omaha and the last time there was
this much excitement around here.
But even then, the whole town
didn't turn out like it's done this


season.
"I don't


[know how] you can't


think of this season as a success.
SEC champions, making it to the
NCAA Championship series, I think
all fans should be really pleased.
With all this team's youth, I didn't
think that this year would be it.
"This could have just as easily
been a rebuilding year.. Obviously
it wasn't."


CONTROL, from page 22

Coast.
After UF lost the series, I met a distraught fan roaming
down the Fisherman's Wharf in his Gators sweater.
"Man, now I really hate the state of Texas," he said.
Obviously, he was referring to something out of the
spectrum of sports. Buddy, I feel your pain too.
But the Gators should be honored and treated like
champs. They deserve a parade down University Ave,
where McMahon and Matt LaPorta can stroll down the
streets on a white horse, or, better yet, an elephant.
Bernie Machen could bring the champagne non-al-
coholic, of course.
No, the Gators didn't win the national champion-
ship. After playing nearly flawless baseball for weeks,
McMahon and Co. finally met their match. They tried to
mess with Texas, but the Longhorns laid down some of
that famous Texas capital punishment.
Still, after all the recent disappointments in UF sports,
an unheralded group of sophomores gave Gators fans
something to be truly proud of.
Suddenly LaPorta is Harold Reynold's best friend
and the baseball team just propelled itself into the ranks
of football and basketball.
Welcome to the big leagues, guys. If only I had gotten
on the right plane...
