UF experts predict future of Supreme Court


By CHUCK BAER
Alligator Contributing Writer

The Bush, administration may use Justice
Sandra Day O'Connor's recently announced
retirement as an opportunity to place another,
more staunchly conservative member on the
Supreme Court, UF professors said.
O'Connor, the first woman to serve on the
Court, was seen by many to be a moderate and
a swing vote on issues such as abortion and
the death penalty, leading UF experts to won-
der about the politics of her replacement.


"I think President Bush will try to find
someone who's a more solid conservative,
someone who's easier to predict," law profes-
sor Sharon Rush said. "The president has the
prerogative to appoint justices, and he can
appoint people with similar views on the con-
stitution and the law."
O'Connor's retirement the first Supreme
Court retirement in 11 years gives the Bush
administration a chance to appoint a justice
who will lean to the right on issues important
to Bush's conservative base.
"I would expect Mr. Bush to do what he


said he would do in his campaign speeches
and choose someone in regard to right to life
and the death penalty,"
said professor Joe Little,
wh6 teaches constitutional
law at UF's Levin College
of Law. "I believe he may
choose someone stronger
than O'Connor has been."
O'Connor's retirement
O'Connor came as a surprise to many
who believed Chief Justice
William Rehnquist, who-suffers from thyroid.


cancer, would retire first.
Several candidates have been suggested
already to replace the ailing chief justice.
"People nominated to replace O'Connor
would be different from people nominated to
replace Rehnquist," Little said.
No matter who is chosen to replace
O'Connbr, a bitter Senate confrontation is
expected. Senate Democrats are not expected
to be enthusiastic about confirming a conser-
vative justice.

Reitz has two leaders


UF senior Ryan Chase, 20, works at the Reitz Union Hotel desk Friday. Leadership of the Reitz Union
was reorganized after the appointment of Eddie Daniels as its new executive director last week.


By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Alligator Writer
jrichards@alligator.org

In the past, the Reitz Union has
been under the day-to-day control
of an executive director and two as-
sociate directors.
Since early March, Mike
Mironack has done the work of all
three. In the Spring, he also taught
a class.
"Fortunately, I have a very
understanding and supportive
spouse," he said.
However, Mironack did not earn
the union's top administrative spot
when the interview process to find
a replacement for David Kratzer,
who left the position in March, con-
cluded last week.
Instead, when new Executive
Director Eddie Daniels arrives Aug.
31, Mironack will be his director of
operations, assuming the respon-
sibilities that formerly belonged to
both associate directors.
Mironack has been serving as
interim executive director since


Kratzer vacated the position to be-
come an assistant to Vice President
for Student Affairs Patricia Telles-
Irvin.
Myra Morgan, a Reitz associate
director, also left for Telles-Irvin's
office in March as part of a general
restructuring of Student Affairs.

"Fortunately, I have a very
understanding and support-
ive spouse."
Mike Mironack
Reitz Union director of operations

Mironack was the other associ-
ate director at the time. He oversaw
the union's marketing and retail
sector, which includes STA Travel,
Lange Eye Care and other ground-
floor offices.
As director of operations, a new
title that combines both associate
positions, Mironack will also be in
charge of maintenance, custodial
service, productions, reservation of

NSF: Good work FAMU, we won't stop grants
Florida A&M University, which has struggled with financial
problems, has convinced the National Science Foundation that it
will manage properly millions of dollars in grants, Interim President
Castell Bryant said Friday.
The decision means the flow of funds, which was stopped 14
months ago, should resume next week, Bryant said.
The school Florida's only historically black public university
- has 14 grants from the foundation totaling about $11 million.,
The news came just one day after a meeting of the Board of
Trustees that included details of a payroll audit, which showed 41
university employees had been fired because of irregularities.

caused by shark at-
tacks in the waters off
the coast of Flprida's

little to impact tourism to
the state, UF's resident

Shark attacks won't take bite out of tourist season


By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Alligator Contributing Writer
The recent wake caused by shark
attacks in the waters off the coast of
Florida's Panhandle should do little
to impact tourism to the state, UF's
resident shark expert said.
George Burgess, director of
the Florida Museum of Natural
History's shark-research program,
said that although difficult to pre-
dict, past experience reveals that
tourists will not fear the vicious
attacks enough to avoid coming to
Florida this year.
"The public understands that
shark attacks are rare events less
likely to happen if they honor the
dos and don'ts" he said.

4) Use care near sandbars or
steep drop-offs
Information from the International
Shark Attack File at the Florida
Museum of Natural History


Burgess noted a study conducted
by the museum in 2001, which con-
cluded that tourism was not affected
significantly despite more than 35
shark attacks that year.
About 30 such attacks on aver-
age occur each year in Florida, but
because of the intensity of the hur-
ricane season only 12 were recorded
last year, Burgess said.
However, he added that the in-
creasing number of people visiting
Florida beaches every year could
lead to more attacks.
"There are so many people in the
water that we are forcing a human-
shark interaction," Burgess said.
Burgess has become a hot com-
modity for newspapers and televi-
sion programs after three shark
attacks occurred in a matter of days
in the northern Gulf of Mexico.
The latest incident occurred Friday,
when a 19-year-old Austrian tourist
was bitten on the ankle by a shark
while standing in chest-deep water.
Armin Trojer was upright in
the water when he was bitten, said
Lee County sheriff's spokeswoman
Ileana LiMarzi. He was airlifted by
helicopter to a Fort Myers hospital,
where he was reported to be in good
condition.
"People on the beach saw that
he -was in distress, but first they
thought he was clowning around,"
said Jim Tucker, publisher of The
Boca Banner.
Paramedics treating Trojer in-
dicated the wound was consistent
with a shark bite.
The third such attack in less than
a week, this incident was about 280

Times starts newspaper to serve East Gainesville


By STEPHEN MAGRUDER
Alligator Writer
smagruder@alligator.org

The first black newspaper published
by the New York Times will find its home
in Gainesville a move that already has
upset nearby competing publication The
Florida Star.
The New York Times Company, which
owns the Gainesville Sun and the Ocala
Star-Banner among several other newspa-
pers throughout the Southeast, has made
arrangements. to start The Gainesville
Guardian, a weekly newspaper specifi-
cally targeted to the black community in
East Gainesville.
The newspaper, which could start print-
ing as early as late August or September, is
expected to have a steady circulation of
about 10,000.
"Papers of this kind are very much
neighborhood- [and] community-ori-
ented," Gainesville Sun Executive Editor
Jim Osteen said.
He said the Guardian will serve the
news needs of East Gainesville, where
the Sun has the lowest concentration of
readers.


Despite the impending launch date of
the newspaper, Osteen said further re-
search still needs to be done.
"We are still trying to look at models
of good weekly newspapers," he said.
"All of the questions haven't been an-
swered."
Florida Star Publisher and Editor-In-
Chief Clara McLaughlin Criswell said she
would be more supportive of the Guardian
if a black company owned it.
"We really have black news," Criswell
said, adding that her Jacksonville-based
newspaper already reaches the Gainesville
market.
The Star is one of more than 20 black
newspapers in Florida belonging to
'the National Newspaper Publishers
Association, a black news service with
more than 200 member papers, according
to its Web site.
Osteen said focus groups working out
of the Sun's headquarters told publishers
that there was no newspaper serving East
Gainesville.
The publication will be brought out in
an era of rising niche-market news publi-
cations.


"I talk with the people, the reader-
ship, to find out what they like and
what they want. What they're buy-
ing is what we're selling."
Clara McLaughlin Criswell
Florida Star editor-in-chief

Newspaper companies like the Orlando
.Sentinel and The Miami Herald have cre-
ated Hispanic-targeted papers such as El
Sentinel and El Nuevo Herald to.reach the
growing Hispanic community in Florida.
Information gathered from the 2000
U.S. Census Bureau report estimated that
of Gainesville's 95,477 residents, 22,181
residents, or more than 23 percent, were
black.
Statewide, almost 15 percent, or more
than 2.3 million, of Florida's 16 million
residents were black.
Criswell, a former Gainesville resident,
said she would have welcomed the oppor-
tunity to work together on marketing the
new newspaper.
"Why couldn't they come to me?"
. Criswell said, adding that neither the Sun
nor the Guardian consulted her or her


newspaper before planning to start the
Guardian.
Criswell said the Florida Star, which
has been in business for 54 years, has an
audience of loyal readers because it under-
stands the black community.
"I talk with the people, the readership,-
to find out what they like and what they
want," Criswell said. "What they're buy-
ing is what we're selling."
Statistics from the Newspaper
Association of America show that since
1970, daily newspaper readership by
whites, blacks and Hispanics has dropped
between 10 to 20 percentage points.
In the past six years alone, each race
lowered its daily readership by at'least 6
percentage points.
"It's not easy to start a newspaper,"
Criswell said, adding that revenue from
advertising is the most important part of a
newspaper's survival.
An advantage, she said, that the
Guardian may not necessarily need start-
ing out, given its parent company.
"It may not be difficult for them (the
Gainesville Guardian) in that they're
owned by the New York Times," she said.

Leaving burnt rubber and
churned-up water in his wake,
former Harley-Davidson and
Sea-Doo executive Joe Hice
joined UF's staff as associate vice
president of marketing and pub-
lic relations Thursday.
Besides directing the univer-
sity's news bureau, Hice is now
responsible for internal com-
munications at' the university,
according to a release.
Hice has a history with UF,
having earned both a bachelor's
degree in journalism and a mas-
ter's degree in communication
from the university.
"I enjoy Gainesville," Hice
said. "Ever since graduation I've
been attached to the university."
Hice came back to UF after
a long career in the corporate
world, where he worked with
Harley-Davidson, Segway, Sea-
Doo Watercraft and others.
Despite his new job, Hice
doesn't plan to leave his toys
behind.
"I'm not giving them up," he
said. "I'm going to ride a Segway
on campus and a Harley on the
weekends."


Hice feels he has done all he
can in the corporate world and is
ready to move on, but it wasn't
all bad wearing black jeans and
leather to work, he said.
Hice said he plans to use the
.experience he has gained in cor-
porate
U F settings
Administration to help
further
UF President Bernie Machen's
goals, one of which is becoming
a Top 10 national public research
institution.
"I look at the university like
a Fortune 500 Company because
that's where I have been," Hice
said.
One of the projects Hice is
most interested in is the develop-
ment of two new TV commer-
cials to be aired during UF foot-
ball games and a similar ad to be
printed in football programs.
"Florida football will be on TV
13 times this year, and Wve have
a commercial spot each game,"
Hice said. "That airtime probably
amounts to millions of dollars,
and we have an opportunity there
to tell our story to the nation."
"I think it's going to be a lot
of fun," Hice said. "There's just
something about being.a Gator."

Bush will wait to offer nominee


O'CONNOR, from page 1

"There's going to be a huge battle
in Congress," Rush said. "But it really
depends on who he nominates. If he
nominates someone like O'Connor, it
will be easier."
Rush believes that Bush could use
the appointment to leave a legacy by
appointing the first Hispanic or the
first black woman to the court, mak-
ing the short list of possible successors
even shorter.
fa .'n l Bush said Friday he
NeWS would nominate his
first Supreme Court
justice quickly enough that O'Connor's
vacancy could be filled by the time the
court resumes work in the fall.
The White House said there would
be no announcement before he returns
from Europe next Friday.
"I will be deliberate and thorough
in this process," said Bush in the Rose
Garden, where he praised O'Connor's
24 years on the court.
Bush will consult with -Republican
and Democratic senators about his se-
lection, White House spokesman Scott
McClellan said.


The president plans to review
briefing material on potential
nominees on his flight to Denmark
next Tuesday and during his stay
Wednesday through Friday at a sum-
mit of leading industrialized nations
in Scotland.
Anticipating what could be a tough
battle in the Senate when he returns
from Europe, Bush called for civility in
the confirmation process.
"The nation deserves and I
will select a Supreme Court that
Americans can be proud of," Bush
said. "The nation' also deserves a
dignified process of confirmation in
the United States Senate character-
ized by fair treatment, a fair hearing
and a fair vote."
McClellan said the White House
would consult with Majority Leader
Bill Frist and Minority Leader Harry
Reid as well as leaders of the Judiciary
Committee, and he expressed hope
that Democrats would not block a vote
on the president's pick.
"I can't imagine that the Democrats
would want to engage in controversial
tactics when it comes to a nominee for
the Supreme Court," he said.
The Associated Press contributed to
this report.

which to conduct research," Scully said.
The eradication will halt all research at the
center, Scully said, including more than two
dozen experiments using trees planted 30 to
50 years ago.
Scully said the loss will hit the facility hard
because more than 250 specimens, including
very rare varieties of plants some that are
more than 40 years old must be destroyed.
One of the species is a rare orange used in the
Mediterranean as a perfume, he said.
Trees affected by citrus canker develop
small brown lesions on the leaves, stems and
fruits and eventually reduces tree productivity.
if left unchecked, according to a press release.
Canker is one of the most destructive dis-
base threats to Florida's $9 billion citrus indus-
try. The bacteria that cause canker can affect all
citrus varieties, including grapefruit, oranges
and tangerines, all of which are grown at the
Indian River facility.
The bacteria can be spread through the air,
rainwater and via people, animals, plants and
farm equipment, Scully said.


The center primarily researches grapefruits,
and there is a two-year waiting period before
they can be replanted.
Even after replanting, Scully said it will take
from three to five years before the trees bear
fruit again.
The scientists plan to shift their studies into
commercial groves.
The experiments affected at the Indian River
grove focus on plant breeding, entomology, pa-
thology and virology, soil and water science,
plant nutrition and irrigation and post-harvest
physiology, Scully said.
Scully added that the center's grants will
probably be affected due to the lack of ongoing
research.
He said the center is working closely with
the Division of Plant Industry to rid the grove
of this disease, and that he is "very apprecia-
tive of the help of DPI" and looking forward to
recovering from this loss.
Officials also plan to step up efforts to.pro-
tect citrus research centers in Lake Alfred and
the Southwest Florida Research and Education
Center in Immokalee.

Editorial


High society

TV coverage of missing

children favors the rich
In the United States, two children disappear every minute.
But stay tuned to Aruba, the island nation slightly larger
than Walt Disney World, where a high-school graduate from
a well-to-do family has created a media frenzy with no signs of
slowing.
The tragedy surrounding the case fulfills many a mother's
nightmare: Natalee Holloway disappeared while traveling
abroad, in a place with an unfamiliar language, different laws
and lacking proper resources to adequately respond to the situ-
ation.
It's unfortunate, and it's hard not to feel for her family, but is
it a story of enough importance to dominate the headlines?
No.
We want a poor person to. disappear and get 15 minutes
on CNN. Or, at least, we want those organizations that made
Holloway a household name to give us a minimum income
level for the same treatment.
We'd like to know how much our lives have to be worth
to merit investigation by agencies such as the FBI, the Royal
Netherlands Marines, Coast Guard and Forensic Institute, a
fully mobilized foreign police agency and thousands of natives,
with search efforts only being scaled back a month after our
disappearance.
To have our picture constantly broadcast on network news.
To have the U.S. Senator from our home state make demands of
another country's government. To receive the kind of investiga-
tion that results in three suspects in 10 days in our case, too.
Because we were under the impression that it didn't matter,
that our lives were equal because we're all loved as someone's
sibling, grandchild, aunt, son and so on.
Apparently not.
Remember Brendan Kieran Dobbins, the UF exchange stu-
dent from Australia who disappeared during a Spring Break
trip to Costa Rica with four friends?
Maybe if you were reading newspapers in Gainesville dur-
ing the Spring. Would you recognize him?
Of course not.
Instead of a swarm of federal agents and cameras, his friends
stayed behind in an effort to encourage local media coverage.
Within four days, they were frustrated with local authorities
in charge of the search, which they instigated after appealing to
the U.S. Embassy to list Dobbins as a missing person. He was
given up for dead just a few days after that.
When they returned, his friends raised money in Turlington
Plaza to aid search efforts.
Five weeks after he disappeared, Dobbins' skeleton was
found scattered in a Costa Rican rainforest.
We can't say for sure that things would have gone differently
with the kind of best-that-money-can-buy full-scale fine-tooth
combing taking place in Aruba.
But where were the Anderson Cooper special reports for
Dobbins? And for that matter, where are they for the four chil-
dren lost while you read this editorial?
Not that we're too surprised we learned a similar lesson in
the first week of Social Psychology: If you're in trouble, it helps
to be a pretty young woman, preferably white.-
We're picking on one example, but look at some other cases
that were given incessant coverage Carlie Brucia, JonBenet
Ramsey. They have money in the bank in common.
As precious as we are in the eyes of those who love us, when
it comes to foul play, we better hope our great grandparents left
a trust fund or our parents can afford the kind of invaluable
exposure that having one's picture on national television can
mean.
Though authorities are beginning to make grim state-
ments, we hope Natalee is found alive, same as all the others
whose families will miss them quietly at their dinner tables
tonight.

Buy American, but
KENT, Ohio
Wilder people, say young people are angry. They
think anyone under 30 is angry because they're
ignorant.
I think the truth is the younger we are, the more edu-
cated we are, the angrier we are.
That's right. I said being angry correlates with educa-
tion.
The truth is the more I learn, the angrier I get. As I sit in
classes and hear the truth about all those myths I've heard
since I was a child, it rattles me.
The worst part is, the people who often call others igno-
rant are doing so out of their own kind of ignorance.
One of my biggest problems is with the slogan "Buy
American!" ..
Easy, Seabiscuit.
Put down that pen and paper for your letter to the editor
and read on before you judge me.
I agree with the concept of buying American. With a
growing number of multi-national corporations, downsiz-
ing is the way of the future. I know what it's like to deal
with job cuts in the family.
Buying American-made goods helps our own econ-
omy. Slow down, though, before you buy everything
with an American name because you're "helping the
economy."
Sometimes, to be socially conscious we must do a
little research. Take, for instance, the largest case for buying
American: cars.
My boyfriend has been told to buy American because he
drives a Honda Accord. He was even told on a visit to the Ford
plant that he couldn't park in their lot with a "foreign" car.
Now let's examine that. Four of every five Hondas
(those bastard "foreign" cars) sold in America. are made
in America and with 90 percent American-manufactured
parts.


know what you buy
Kelly Mills In Ohio alone, Honda has four
SU-Wire plants. Nissan, Hyundai and Toyota
also manufacture cars in the United
States for domestic sales.
Many of General Motors, Chrysler and Ford's cars are
either manufactured abroad or made of foreign-produced
parts, especially from Canada and Mexico.
So really, who is giving more jobs .to the Americans?
Chances are, in manufacturing,-it's the foreign compa-
nies. That's the big stink in the manufacturing process.
What many people don't realize is that just because
the company has.its offices and administrative staff in the
United States, that doesn't mean that any other part of the
company is located on U.S. soil.
Car companies are far from the only industry outsourc-
ing jobs, especially in manufacturing, while foreign compa-
nies are grabbing at the chance to use U.S.-made products
as a foothold in our American market.
Now that- communication is at the touch of a but-
ton on the Internet, companies are expanding, and it
takes a lot more than an "American name" to tell if the
purchase of that product is supporting the American
economy.
Like I said, I have no problem with anyone and every-
one buying American and supporting our slow economy, In
fact, I encourage it.
All I ask is that all of you college students and graduates,
and for that matter anyone else, think for a moment before
you speak.
A college education is a horrible thing to waste on
sounding like an idiot.
Don't let the words coming out sound ignorant. Don't
tell someone driving a CRV most likely made in Marysville,
Ohio, to buy American while you're sitting in your made-
in-Canada Hummer.

Social Security faces dangerous drop in students' futures


When Social Security was cre-
ated in 1935, America was truly
a different world. The Great
Depression dominated our society, and
average life expectancy was 62.
One of the programs designed to pro-
tect seniors against poverty was Social
Security.
While our nation has changed greatly
since those days, this critical program has
not been updated to meet the needs of re-
tirees in the 21st century.
Think how different your world is from
your grandparents' and great-grandpar-
ents'. They thought that a blackberry was
a fruit they put on their breakfast cereal.
The palm was nothing more than a tree in
Florida.
Telephones were considered luxury
items, and people were just coming to
learn about cells not the ones you carry
in your pockets, but the parts of your
body.
Today, life expectancy in the United
States is 77, and the retirement age is 67.
People are living longer, healthier and
more active lives.


Unfortunately, Social Security has not
kept pace with the many advances in our
society and is becoming less reliable for
today's younger workers.
There are several reasons why Social
Security is not sustainable, but one statis-
tic tells the tale: In 1950 there were dozens
of workers supporting each retiree; today,
there are about three.
I When you retire, there will only be
two.
This is significant because Social
Security is paid by current payroll taxes
that fund current retirees.
As the number of workers supporting
each retiree continues to decline, so does
the ability of the government to pay out
benefits.
Although the Social Security Trust Fund
has been running surpluses for 70 years, in
2017 the government will begin to pay out
more in Social Security benefits than it col-
lects in payroll taxes and shortfalls then
grow larger with each passing year.
The Social Security Trustees project that
the trust fund faces deficits in 12 years and
will be exhausted fully by 2041, the year


Adam Putnam before I am eligible to
Speaking Out retire.
In fact, for people
born this year, Social
Security will run out of money by the time
they reach the sixth grade.
You're probably wondering why you
should be interested in this debate. Here's
the reason: If you are 20 years old, you are
eligible to retire in the year 2052, 11 years
after the Social Security Trust Fund has
been depleted.
If you are finishing your master's de-
gree, you are eligible to retire eight years
after Social Security benefits have been
reduced by approximately one quarter.
Keep that in mind the next time some-
one tells you that we have plenty of time to
address the looming Social Security crisis.
We are now faced with the task of en-
suring that Social Security can responsibly
meet the growing financial demands of a
longer-living population.
Social Security is sound for today's
seniors and for-those nearing retirement,
but it is not sound for your generation and
beyond.


A recent national poll found that more
than two out of three Americans under 40
do not expect Social Security benefits to be
there for them when they retire.
Further, more than two-thirds of young
people believe that Social Security is either
in crisis or has major problems. They are
right.
Conventional wisdom says that young
Americans are disengaged from public-
policy discussions because they don't
believe that changes in the law have any
effect on them.
Well, if ever there was an issue to
engage and motivate young people, it is
this.
Your generation must bear the brunt
of any change in benefits or increased
payroll taxes, so it is only fitting that you
have a seat at the table and that your voice
is heard.
Learn more about the plans under dis-
cussion, and then let your representatives
know your views.
Your retirement security depends on it.

Daniels will take over from Mironack


when he arrives in August responsibili-
ties such as overseeing student activities,
budgeting and relations with Student

Mironack and Daniels were the two
finalists- chosen out of 48 who applied


for the Reitz executive-director spot in a
national search.
Mironack has been with UF for 16 years
and has worked at the Reit2 Union for 10
years.
Kratzer said Daniels was chosen be-


cause Daniels, who has more than 20 years
of experience, is one of the most qualified
student-union directors in the country.
"We've found a way to retain both of
them," Kratzer said, "and keep both of
their strengths in the union."

'Doug Dickey has no class'


- Miami coach Curd


By PAUL SHEA
November 29, 19.71

MIAMI Fran Curci is one
mad man.
" For most of his 45-minute confer-
ence after the UF-UM football game,
Curci said nothing but bad things
about Florida coach Doug Dickey.
After watching the Florida
players flop to the ground on
their own eight yard line to give
John Reaves the ball back Curci
said this:
"It was the worst thing I've
ever seen in football. I thought
a lot of Doug Dickey and have
always admired him. But tonight
I lost all respect for the man.
What he did shows absolutely no
class."
Curci was sure that the call
to let the Hurricanes score came
from the bench. He didn't sympa-
thize with the passing record that
Reaves was shooting for.
"There was still enough time
left (1:10) for them to get the ball
back and give him another chance


at the record," the UM head coach
said. "I was watching Dickey the
whole time and I saw him send
the boy in with the call."
Curci walked off the field
disgusted and refused to shake
hands with Dickey.
"I have shook hands with ev-
ery one of my opponents," Curci
said. "But tonight I just couldn't.
He didn't come out either so I
guess the feeling was mutual.
"Dickey must
have a bad memory.
Classic Things like this
Story come back to haunt
you. I may never
beat the man again but I'll never
forget tonight."
Trying to get away from the
subject, Curci had nothing but
good things to say about the
Florida team and the quarterback.
"Reaves is the greatest quar-
terback ever to come out of this
state," Curci said. "Too bad he
didn't play for a winning team or
he would have won the Heisman
Trophy."


Editor's Note: After 34 years, the legacy of the Florida Flop lives.
On November, 27 1971, UF quarterback John Reaves attempted
to break the coveted NCAA career passing yards record in the UF-
Miami game. With 1:10 remaining and UF holding a 45-8 lead,
Reaves needed just 14 yards for the record. But with little time
remaining, it seemed unlikely UF would get the ball back. So UF
coach Doug Dickey ordered the Gators defense to "flop" to the
ground and allow Miami to score. UF got the ball back and broke
the record. The Gators defended the decision it was the only
way the record could be broken. This classic Alligator story re-
veals a different angle. Enjoy this story exactly as it ran in 1971.


"They gave us a good country
beating," Curci said about the
Gators. "Our linebackers were
all crippled and they threw a lot
of flat passes. Florida finally put
it all together, both offense and
defense.
"Once you get ahead you can
do what you want. They had us
against the ropes like a beaten
fighter. We had to stand and fight
but we just never could recover."
The Hurricanes came out in a
wishbone offense and stuck with
it the whole game.
"I believe Florida knew we
were going to use the wishbone
because they certainly adjusted to
it quickly," Curci said. "But once
you are committed to it, it's best to
stick with it the whole game.
"We only had seven healthy
lineman. We had to stick with
them. They just took a crippled
team and beat the hell out of
them."
Curci was asked again about
the free-bee touchdown. -
"Actually I feel sorry for Doug
Dickey," he said. "I think he made
a fool out of himself, if he thinks
that's the spirit of the game he's
got a long way to go."
"That's just another trick play
you can use when you've got
another team on the ropes," Curci
said about the Durrance to Reaves
TD pass. "Florida beat us in every
way possible. I guess that play
was one more way to insult us."
Curci said that the Hurricanes
went to the new offense because
they had seen that the Gators

Confident Walsh: 'It's not like I'm begging teams in the NBA to -take me'


WALSH, from page 20


the Miami Heat would have drafted Matt
had Wayne Simien not been available with
the No. 29 pick.
"After Matt declared, even [UF] coach
Billy Do'novan was aware of first round in-
terest and he even talked to [NBA] teams
on [Matt's] behalf.
"Matt had very strong workouts. If he
would have been picked by. Miami and
Simien had been off the board then it
would have been hailed as great move."


Levien brought up the case of
Providence's Ryan Gomes a possible
first round pick last year who stayed in
school and wasn't picked until late in .the
second round this season as the perfect
reason why it was in Matt's best interest to
declare for the draft now.
Levien also mentioned the case of a
former UF guard.
"Ask Brett Nelson about the Draft,"
Levien said. "As a sophomore he had the
chance to get drafted in the first round and
he wasn't even on the radar as a senior.
"Evidence shows that it benefits a play-
er not going back to school. Players that


go back to school generally love being in
college and enjoy the experience."
But the Walsh-Nelson link isn't really
a perfect comparison. Nelson played a se-
nior year at UF. Walsh doesn't have that.
option.
Still, Walsh refuses to feel sorry for
himself and believes that come opening
day 2005, he will be on a NBA roster.
"It's not my personality to feel sorry for
myself," Walsh said. "I don't feel sorry for
myself one bit. I knew there was a chance
[I wouldn't be drafted]. I think everything
happens for a reason, and I'm just looking
forward to the future:"


Walsh also said that he continues to be a
hot item on the NBA landscape.
"It doesn't change what NBA people
were saying about me," Walsh said. "It's
not like I'm begging teams in the NBA to
take me."
Mike Walsh says nobody in the family
regrets the decision.
"Based on everything that's happened,
I wouldn't change a thing," Mike Walsh
said. "This wasn't about Florida at all.
Matt loved Florida.
"It remains be seen whether it's going
to work out, but I'm not the type that looks
back."

mont+!,
Sophomores Adam Davis,
Brian Jeroloman and Matt

Baseball National Team an-
nounced on Friday.
The selections were made
after a four-day trial period in
which 39 -players participated
at Doak Field on the campus of
North Carolina State.
The trio played a major role in
the Gators enjoying the best sea-
son in school history, a runner-
up finish at the NCAA College
World Series and the squad's first
Southeastern Conference regular-


season crown since 1998. Coach
Pat McMahon's club finished
with an overall mark of 48-23 and
finished with a No. 2 national
ranking in all four of collegiate
baseball polls.
In the final intrasquad game of
theUSABaseball
National
Team Trials
on Thursday,
SLaPorta pushed
4 the Red team
to a 12-10 win
against the Blue
LaPorta team, going 4-
for-4 with three home" runs and
four RBI.
The Blue team jumped to an
early 3-0 lead thanks to an RBI
groundout by Jeroloman and a
two-run homer by Rice sopho-
more Josh Rodriguez. However,
LaPorta started the Red team's.
rally with a two-run homer in
the top of the third, adding a solo


homer in the sixth and another
two-run shot in the eighth.
A consensus first-team All-
American and SEC Player of the
Year, LaPorta hit .328 and set a
single-season UF record with a
Division I-leading 26 homers,
and his league-best 79 RBI were
the second-most in UF history,
trailing only Ryan Shealy's total
of 80 during the 2002 season.
LaPorta also paced the SEC
with 185 total bases and seven
sacrifice flies, scored a league-
second-most 75 runs and finished
with a third-best .698 slugging
percentage.
A first-team All-SEC recipient
and third-team All-American
pick at second base by Baseball
America, Davis batted .306 with
75 runs, 63 RBI, 15 doubles and
12 homers and led the Gators for
the second consecutive season,
tying for fourth in the SEC with
24 stolen bases.


A second-team All-South
Region choice, Davis hit .545 at
the NCAA Gainesville Regional
to earn all-tournament accolades
and later slugged homers in
CWS wins against Nebraska and
Arizona State.
Another
member of the
Gaines ville
Regional- all-
tournament
team, Jeroloman
garnered sec-
ond-team All-
Jerolman SEC recognition
and finished with a .298 average
and notched career highs across
the board with 74 hits, 49 RBI, 48
runs, 11 doubles and eight home
runs.
Having started all of UF's 71
games from behind the plate,
Jeroloman led the SEC with 37
opposing runners caught stealing

The sophomore trio will
find a few familiar faces, join-
ing Florida State centerfielder

Baseball's national player of
the year, Miami leftfielder John
Jay and pitcher Chris Perez and
Tennessee catcher J.P. Arencibia
on Team USA.

COUNTDOWN TO KICKOFF


UF linebackers ready to take on aggressive role


* SILER LOOKS TO LEAD RE-
VISED LINEBACKER CORPS
AFTER CROWDER'S EXIT.

By ERIC ESTEBAN
Alligator Staff Writer
eesteban@alligator.org

It happened during the Gators
first spring scrimmage.
In less than four seconds, line-
backer Brandon Siler had reached
Chris Leak in the pocket, running
full speed and pulling up right be-
fore impact.
Siler, a sophomore and reigning
Southeastern Conference Freshman
of the Year, was all smiles after the
scrimmage because he knew what
would happen in a real game situ-
ation.
"It's frustrating because in the
game, if I get one step from the
quarterback, I'm hitting him and
he's going to end up on his neck,"
Siler said.


In most situations, a team losing
two starting linebackers would suf-
fer defensively in the following year,
but the Gators find themselves with
enough. potential at the position to
make 2005 an improvement.
Siler is the heir-apparent to
the recently departed Channing
Crowder at the middle linebacker
position and has demonstrated the
ability to be the leader of the defense
when it comes to energy, drive and
performance.
New outlook
Siler should lead the linebacker
corps this year in a more aggressive
defense that features plenty of blitz-
ing packages from the position.
"We do believe in blitzing and
we do believe in being aggressive,"
co-defensive coordinator Greg
Mattison said. "I think as long as the
kids understand that and execute it
we are going to be fine."
The defense's top two tackle


"We do believe in blitzing
and we do believe in being,
aggressive. I think as long
as the kids understand
that and execute it we are
going to be fine."
Greg Mattlson
co-defensive coordinator

leaders return. Siler recorded 77
last year while junior Earl Everett
racked up 74.
Everett returns
Considered one of the top ath-
letes on the team, Everett was called
out by Meyer during the spring as
one of the best football players he's
ever seen.
At 6-foot-2, 228 pounds, Everett's
off-season focus was on gaining
weight.
"I wanted to [gain weight] while
maintaining my speed and foot-


work," Everett said. "I'd like to play
at 230 or 235."
The most important thing for
him will be how well he can gel with
two new starting linebackers, and if
he can develop into one of the SEC's
best in his junior year.
McCullough healthy
Joining the talented duo at the
other linebacker spot will be senior
Todd McCullough.
McCullough who has suffered
numerous injuries, reducing his
time on the field throughout his ca-
reer will need to prove he can stay
healthy in 2005. When 100 percent,
his experience could be a perfect
compliment to the corps.
After that, inexperience comes
into play. Meyer admitted he is
concerned with depth issues at
linebacker.
Uncertainties
Fullback-turned-linebacker Billy
Latsko and Brian Crum could pro-


vide quality depth at the position
after demonstrating some skill in
the spring.
"I think Todd McCullough, Brian
Crum and Billy Latsko are starting
to separate themselves," Meyer
said. "I'm very pleased with that
position."
UF's depth will be lacking, but
that will give the four true-line-
backer freshmen ample opportunity
to make an immediate impact in the
SEC.
Fresh blood
Meyer netted several top
prospects at the position. Darryl
Gresham, a three-star recruit
from Roanoke, Va., will com-
pete with four-star recruits Jon
Demps (Pensacola), Kalvin Baker
(Columbus, Ga.) and Ryan Stamper
(Jacksonville).
At 6-foot-4, 219 pounds, Demps
is probably the most poised of the
group to receive immediate playing
time, but all four could see time on
the field this year.

Walsh not giving up on NBA


By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Writer
agtbramson@alligator.org

Don't believe all that you
hear.
At least that's what the Matt
Walsh camp is saying days after
the UF junior was shut out of the
NBA Draft.
Many people have been criti-
cized including Matt's father
Mike Walsh and agent Jason
Levien for possibly convincing
Matt to forgo his final year at UF
and give the NBA Draft a chance.
But both Mike Walsh and -Levien
say it was solely Matt's decision.
"Matt didn't want to play col-
lege basketball anymore," Levien
said. "It wasn't bad advice, he
was ready to go. He wanted to
take a shot at the NBA. Evidence
proves that had he stayed in
school his chances [at being
drafted] would have diminished.
They don't draft seniors. The
longer you're in school, the more
your game gets criticized."
Walsh reiterated the same
comments late Friday night.
"It wasn't like I got coerced
into entering the Draft," Walsh
said. "I knew exactly what I was
getting into, and I knew it was a
risk. But I felt it was. a calculated
risk. I felt it was worth it, and I'm
going to play on two NBA sum-


mer teams and I plan to make a
roster."

Ideal situation
After Walsh, as well as team-
mate Anthony Roberson, seem-
ingly blew an opportunity to lead
the Gators next season by enter-
ing the Draft that they weren't
selected in, the Walsh camp says
Matt is actually in a relatively
ideal situation right now. As a
second round pick, Walsh would
have been at the mercy of the
team that drafted him.
"Matt had very strong
workouts. If he would have
been picked by Miami and
Simien had been off the
board then it would have
been hailed as a great
move."
Mike Walsh
Matt Walsh's father

Now, Walsh has options. He
will play for the Miami 'Heat's
summer league team in Los
Angeles on July 5, before playing
for the Seattle Supersonics' sum-
mer team in Salt Lake City, Utah,
the following week. Walsh can
only hope that one team will sign
him as a free agent.
Mike Walsh said the New
Jersey Nets called the Walsh fam-


ily on draft night and wanted to
select Matt No. 42 overall. But the
Nets wanted Walsh to agree to go
Europe if he did not make the
team second round contracts
are not guaranteed.
"Matt had made that deci-
sion [prior to the draft, that he
wouldn't do that] and it wasn't
just popped on him," Mike Walsh
said. "It was something he was
not interested in doing.
"[Matt] feels like he'll make
a team and this actually worked
out better. He'd rather have a
choice."
Walsh admitted that it was
tough not hearing his name
called on Draft night, but .a day
later he realized that he wasn't in
such a bad situation.
"Obviously you want to hear
your named called," Walsh said.
"I think it's one of those things
that it would have felt good to be
drafted by New Jersey or whoev-
er at the time. But the next morn-
ing I realized I could [possibly]
play for a year [without having
to go to Europe]. Looking back
it's probably better that I [wasn't
drafted in the second round]."

NBA aspirations alive
There was plenty of buzz sur-
rounding Walsh leading up to the
draft and Mike still believes that

The criticism continues for Matt Walsh after the UF guard was not
selected in the NBA Draft. Walsh says he will make the NBA.


Reality television gives former Gators newfound publicity on FOX


Breaking news from the people at FOX.
We regret to inform you that
American Idol will not be shown
this season. Idol judges Paula Abdul,
Simon Cowell and Randy Jackson have
been kidnapped by Iraqi insurgents. The
hostage takers reportedly have attempted
to return the Idol judges to the United
States because "we can't stand these lu-
natics," but the American government has
refused to let them back in the country.
So Idol will be replaced by yet another
star-studded reality show from the brains
behind "The Surreal Life" and "Wife
Swap."
Get ready to follow the lives of three
unique individuals who have embarked
on different paths to end up together, in a
small studio apartment in Kazakhstan.
Former University of Florida basket-


ball guards Anthony Roberson and Matt
Walsh will be reunited with Gators castoff
Christian Drejer.
The catch? While all three were invited
to play basketball in Kazakhstan, they
thought they were doing it alone. Now
these three former stars will have to share
a 300-square foot studio while a war is be-
ing fought in their own backyard.
Here's some excerpts from the pilot
episode.
Roberson, distraught from not being able
to locate any NBA throwback jerseys in
Kazakhstan, hears a knock at the door. Since
nobody has ever visited the studio, the three
players look at each other cautiously before
opening the door. In comes Walsh's agent
Jason Levien.
Levien: Matt, I just received some great
news. If you had entered the NBA Draft in

been a guaranteed
first round pick!
Later that day,
Walsh notices strange
engravings on the wall
of the studio.


aabramson@alligator.org Walsh: It looks
like flames of former
tenants. Wait, I think
I can make them out. Marcin Gortat, Uros
Slokar, Cenk Akyol.

Roberson: Damn, those are the dudes
that were picked late in the second round
of the Draft.

Levien: Guys, don't feel bad about your
decision. If you had waited until next year


to enter the Draft, your chances of being
selected would have been greatly dimin-
ished.

Roberson: But we weren't drafted.

Levien: Yeah, but next year it would
have been worse.
Early in the evening, Walsh and Roberson
take a stroll down a war-torned street and see
a little Kazakhstani boy named Kossor wearing
a Miami Heat jersey with Walsh's name on
the back. A puzzled Walsh finds out that his
dad had thousands of Heat jerseys created, as-
suming Walsh would go to Miami. Red Cross
donated them to third world countries.

Kossor: Don't worry, Matt. We get bad
advice all the time, that's why we're third
world.
